The U.S. government deliberately massacred over 1 million civilians yet still no UN sanctions, trials or military action
Posted by PAUL W KINCAID War Crimes, World news Thursday, November 24th, 2011
In Iraq and Afghanistan over a million civilians have been killed since 2001. They were not killed by Iran, Libya or Syria. They were not killed in a civil war. They were massacred by the United States government. The United States willfully and deliberately massacred over a million unarmed civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq. The United States went to war with 3 nations that hadn’t attacked the United States or even threatened the United States. Now the United States government is preparing to mass murder millions more in unprovoked attacks against Syria and Iran. It is time for the International community to wake up and take action against the United States government. It is time for the International community to impose sanctions against the United States government. If the United States government attacks either Syria or Iran the United States government must be held accountable and they must pay the price.
The evidence is clear. The US attacked 3 countries which did not attack the US or any other country or even threatened other countries in any way. The US attacks against Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya are declared “Wars of Aggression”, Crimes Against Peace” and “War Crimes” according to US and International Law. The evidence declares George W Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice, Barack Hussein Obama, Joe Biden, Robert Gates, Hillary Clinton, Leon Panetta, Tony Blair, David Cameron, Nicolas Sarkozy, Gérard Longuet, Steven Harper, Peter MacKay and members of their government as war criminals.
“Aggression is the use of armed force by a state against the sovereignty, territorial integrity or political independence of another state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Charter of the United Nations, as set out in this definition,” according to General Assembly Resolution 3314.
The definition of terrorism is: 1. League of Nations Convention (1937): “All criminal acts directed against a State and intended or calculated to create a state of terror in the minds of particular persons or a group of persons or the general public”. 2. UN Resolution language (1999):”1. Strongly condemns all acts, methods and practices of terrorism as criminal and unjustifiable, wherever and by whomsoever committed; 2. Reiterates that criminal acts intended or calculated to provoke a state of terror in the general public, a group of persons or particular persons for political purposes are in any circumstance unjustifiable, whatever the considerations of a political, philosophical, ideological, racial, ethnic, religious or other nature that may be invoked to justify them”.
The US government does not recognize the legitimate use of violence by civilians against the US invader in the occupied countries of Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya and they do not recognize the legitimate use of force by the Syrian government against CIA mercenaries who have illegally entered the country to overthrow the Syrian government. The United States government labels all resistance movements as terrorist groups. Others make a distinction between lawful and unlawful use of violence. The US government has labeled all resistance to their unlawful and unprovoked attacks and occupation as enemy or unlawful combatants. Ultimately, the distinction is political. In November 2004, a United Nations Security Council report described terrorism as any act “intended to cause death or serious bodily harm to civilians or non-combatants with the purpose of intimidating a population or compelling a government or an international organization to do or abstain from doing any act.
The US government’s “War on Terror” is a state sponsored terrorist act. It is the US government engaging in wars of aggressive terror against all those who oppose the US takeover of their natural resources – in this cases natural gas pipeline in Afghanistan and oil in Iraq and Libya.
“U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) defined terrorism as: “The calculated use of unlawful violence or threat of unlawful violence to inculcate fear; intended to coerce or to intimidate governments or societies in the pursuit of goals that are generally political, religious, or ideological.” The US Department of Defense has defined the actions that the United States government has taken against the people of the United States, the people of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and threats against Syria and Iran as terrorism.
As far as the US government is concerned everyone who opposes them are “terrorist” yet the victims of the US aggression are actually “freedom fighters”, defending their country and fellow countrymen from the unlawful, unjustified and unprovoked attack by the criminals in control of the US government.
Key criteria that define the US government as a terrorist state:
Violence – According to Walter Laqueur of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, “the only general characteristic of terrorism generally agreed upon is that terrorism involves violence and the threat of violence.” – Shock and awe was used by the Bush White House when they launched their cowardly and unprovoked attack against the innocent people of Afghanistan and Iraq. The US attacks were pure acts of violence against the civilian population of Afghanistan and Iraq. Bush and Cheney committed terrorist acts against the people of Afghanistan and Iraq and Obama and Gates against the people of Libya.
Neither Afghanistan or Iraq had anything to do with the 9/11 attacks. No hijackers were from either of those 2 countries. No foreign war planes attacked, bombed, or invaded the US on 9/11. No diplomat from either countries made any threats against the US or ordered the attacks against the US yet the US immediately made plans to violently attack them. Both Afghanistan and Iraq are victims of terrorism, wars of aggression, war crimes, crimes against peace and crimes against humanity, perpetrated by the US government. Both countries are victims of the US violent unprovoked attacks that destroyed their countries and slaughtered millions of their “civilian” population.
Psychological impact and fear – Terrorist attacks are carried out in such a way as to maximize the severity and length of the psychological impact. Each act of terrorism is a “performance,” devised to have an impact on many large audiences. Terrorists also attack national symbols to show their power and to shake the foundation of the country or society they are opposed to. This may negatively affect a government’s legitimacy, while increasing the legitimacy of the given terrorist organization and/or ideology behind a terrorist act. The US government put on quite a “performance” with their terrorist attack against their own country on September 11, 2001.
Immediately the US government took control of the media in order to maximize the psychological impact and hyped the fear in the US public. Bush and Cheney carefully chose the World Trade Centers for they were a national symbol of the US financial power. Bush and Cheney are the real terrorists. Government documents revealed that the Patriot Act was drawn up even before the attacks of September 11, 2001 giving evidence of the attacks being premeditated.
Perpetrated for a political goal – Something all terrorist attacks have in common is their perpetration for a political purpose. Terrorism is a political tactic. Rebuilding America Defenses detailed the Bush White House political goal even before they stole the White House in the 2000 presidential election. The US Constitution clearly stated that “only” the House of Representatives can decide by vote when a tie occurs in a presidential election yet the George W Bush had his brother decide for the entire nation – through the ruling of one unelected state judge (judge was appointed by Jeb Bush). Rebuilding America Defense is a terrorist doctrine that laid out the entire political goal of the Bush administration.
Deliberate targeting of non-combatants – It is commonly held that the distinctive nature of terrorism lies in its intentional and specific selection of civilians as direct targets. Specifically, the criminal intent is shown when babies, children, mothers, and the elderly are murdered, or injured, and put in harm’s way. Much of the time, the victims of terrorism are targeted not because they are threats, but because they are specific “symbols, tools, animals or corrupt beings” that tie into a specific view of the world that the terrorist possess. Their suffering accomplishes the terrorists’ goals of instilling fear, getting a message out to an audience, or otherwise accomplishing their often radical religious and political ends. When the US government began their “War of Terror” they immediately planned for and launched attacks against civilians. Shock and awe was a deliberate armed attack against the civilian population. The US government murdered over 1 million Iraqi civilians by the time George W Bush declared mission accomplished. Even to this day there are daily reports of US military strikes that have killed civilians – not any opposing army, navy or air force.
The US government saw all those who resisted their unlawful occupation as a threat to their goals in Iraq. Every time the US military launched a mission in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya their missions were always against civilians. They murdered the innocent civilians as a warning to every one else who would dare to come forward and oppose the illegal occupation of their country. They murdered over 1 million innocent civilians, including women and children, to invoke perpetual fear in the general population.
Disguise – Terrorists almost invariably pretend to be non-combatants, hide among non-combatants, fight from in the midst of non-combatants, and when they can, strive to mislead and provoke the government soldiers into attacking the wrong people, that the government may be blamed for it. The Bush White House brainwashed the US public into believing that they are attacking and occupying other countries to protect the US and the people. They are falsely portraying themselves to be the good guys. The US Congress has known that Bush and Cheney mislead them yet to this day they have not done their sworn duty to make them accountable for their criminal acts against the US people and the innocent people of Afghanistan and Iraq. The US Congress knows that the Obama ordered armed attacks against Libya were unconstitutional (and therefore illegal) and yet to this day they have not made Obama accountable for breaking US law and the unlawful mass murder of the Libyan people.
If you and I were to take the list of hijackers as evidence then the Bush government attacked the wrong country and killed the wrong people because according to the US White House the mastermind behind 9/11 was a Saudi billionaire with ties to the Saudi royal family and the majority of hijackers were Saudi. Their presented evidence declares that Saudi Arabia attacked the US not Afghanistan or Iraq or Iran. The Bush White House evidence clearly lays blame for the killing of US citizens on September 11, 2001 on Saudi Arabia yet they chose to attack 2 innocent countries. The 9/11 Commission Report was commissioned by the White House to hide and cover up the facts that Saudi Arabia helped the Bush administration attack the US.
Unlawfulness or illegitimacy – Some official (notably government) definitions of terrorism add a criterion of illegitimacy or unlawfulness to distinguish between actions authorized by a “legitimate” government (and thus “lawful”) and those of other actors, including individuals and small groups. Using this criterion, actions that would otherwise qualify as terrorism would not be considered terrorism if they were government sanctioned – state terrorism. “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.” This is exemplified when a group that uses irregular military methods is an ally of a State against a mutual enemy, but later falls out with the State and starts to use the same methods against its former ally. A perfect example is the cozy relationship between the US and Iraq’s Saddam Hussein. Saddam fought a proxy war for the US against Iran. Donald Rumsfeld was special envoy to Saddam and he personally hand delivered the Bell helicopters that Saddam used to drop the US made and delivered chemical bombs on Iran and the Kurds who tried to assassinate Saddam. Every day Bush and Cheney declared they were right and had the right to attack Afghanistan and Iraq. They both keep saying the World is behind them – that their unlawful attacks against innocent states is legitimate. To them torturing is legal because they sanctioned it. Both kept on citing executive privilege whenever another major war crime is uncovered, one that they ordered. Reality is that the attacks against the US on September 11, 2001, against Afghanistan and Iraq are all state sponsored terrorism – all committed by the US government.
Associate United States Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson was the chief prosecutor at the Nuremberg Tribunal. In his report to the State Department, Justice Jackson wrote: “No political or economic situation can justify” the crime of aggression. He also said: “If certain acts in violation of treaties are crimes they are crimes whether the United States does them or whether Germany does them, and we are not prepared to lay down a rule of criminal conduct against others which we would not be willing to have invoked against us.”

Never forget that millions of men and women went off to war to free countries from occupation by aggressive and imperialistic states. How many Americans gave their live so that others can be free? How many paid the ultimate sacrifice to free Europe from the occupation of Adolf Hitler? All of those brave souls’ sacrifice is now belittled and tarnished with the cowardly wars of aggression by the US government against innocent countries. The unlawful attacks against Afghanistan and Iraq by the government of George W Bush and against Libya by Barack Insane Obama and his government dishonors their memory and their sacrifice. What they fought against is now the policy of the US government. They fought to end occupations. They fought to free foreign states. They fought to end the war and bring about peace.
The military and political objective of the United States before Bush was to end a war as quickly as possible in order to restore peace. As soon as they liberated an occupied country they left because freedom does not mean replacing one occupier with another. What did George W Bush and Barack Insane Obama do? They attacked 3 countries without provocation. They attacked and killed millions of innocent people. They destroyed entire civilians cities, towns and villages. They mass murdered women and children. They tortured prisoners of war.
The occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq is continued even today, even with a new president. Bush did not liberate Iraq or Afghanistan, he attacked and occupied them. Obama didn’t stop the killing of the Libyan civilians he attacked and mass murdered a thousand times more.
Have you noticed that Bush and Obama have never uttered the word “peace” in regards to Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria or Iran. They only spoke of and continue to speak of war. Obama promised that if he was elected president he would end the wars. He broke his promise as the wars go on with no talk of peace. The US is no longer a nation of peace keepers and peace makers. The US is a nation of war keepers and war makers. They are the real terrorists. They are the evil that we fought to the death to destroy. They are a mockery to the sacrifice of millions who paid the ultimate price so that others can be free and live in peace.
Syria and Iran compared to US
The UN and the United States are calling for harsh sanctions against Syria and Iran. The US is preparing to launch wars of aggression against Syria and Iran for what the United States government perceives as Syrian crimes against humanity (killing Syrian civilians in a government crackdown) and for Iran seeking the nuclear bomb. What Syria and Iran are doing is no different than what the United States has already done.
