State Sponsors of Terror: Un-Democratic America

When studying history of the 20th century many people are perplexed as to how the population of germany could have been turned from otherwise rational and compassionate people into supporters of the Nazi murderers who had taken power in their country. Especially for those who have spent time in Germany, having met people who could well have been or be descendents of Nazi murderers, and wonder how this could happen to an otherwise nice person. If one ever wanted a case study of how such a thing could possibly happen, they need only look to America right now, and observe the unconditional support for murder and murderers by a large percentage of the population.

One of the reasons for this mind-control over the American population is that all rational coherent discussion is silenced by ignorance. When trying to explain to non-Americans how on earth Americans could be so easily brainwashed, I try to explain that any living organism is only aware of the world with which they are presented. Since September 11th, 2001, the U.S. media has been unwilling and unable to share basic truth with the population of America, much the same as the media in Germany, under the control of the Nazi government after executive orders expanding the power of the Nazi regime, presented only a pro-nazi view. As such, the population of America, blinded by ignorance, knows no better than to agree with the murderous policies carried out in their name.

Theoretically, in a democracy, a well-informed population would have their wishes represented by their democratically elected leaders. When the government of a "democracy" has pushed the situation to the point where there is no room for dissent, and where the representatives who are meant to be what in Europe would be termed the "loyal opposition" willingly go along with whatever is ordered of them by those they are meant to be opposing, then that nation ceases to be a democracy. For evidence of this we need only look to the near unanimous support for the Terrorist State of Israel in the American Democratic Party, and their support for the murderous invasion of Iraq. When only one point of view and one set of goals is represented in a government, that government is a dictatorship, not a democracy. Democracy in America is dead.

The American Dictatorship has been criticising Iran and Syria recently for their support of Hizballah, and this criticism has received much news coverage in the American Propaganda Media and Rupert "I sell cancer and promote murder" Murdoch's international media empire (Sky News, Reuters, Fox News, etc.), and also in the mainstream world media through their reliance on news wires such as reuters and AP (who are trying to compete with Reuters by echoing the same views and broadcasting the same stories and sources). This criticism is in line with the recent report by the US State Department regarding "State Sponsors of Terror" that asserted that Iran was the worlds leading state sponsor of terror. This is not true, although it was unconditionally accepted by "news" agencies such as CNN.

The truth is, the worlds Leading State Sponsor of Terror is America. We need look no further than the current situation in Lebanon and Palestine. In all of 3 weeks, the Israeli Military has killed over one thousand Lebanese civilians. They claim to be targeting Hizballah, but the reality is that less than 50 of the more than 1000 killed had any relation whatsoever to Hizballah, all the rest were ordinary men, women, and children, trying hard to live normal lives.

While the US-controlled media echos criticisms of Iran and Syria, they neglect to point out that planeloads of weapons and ammunition are, to this day, as we speak, flying from the U.S., re-fueling in British owned Scotland, and continuing on to Israel. These planeloads of weapons and ammunition are then turned over, for no cost, to the Israeli military. The dollars of U.S. taxpayers are being used to slaughter civilians by the thousands. This is the very definition of sponsoring terror.

Meanwhile, as the UN and Red Cross attempt to do what they can to evacuate civilians from southern Lebanon, their convoys are coming under attack by the IDF.

Just after the UN Security Council finally came to an agreement on the wording of a resolution calling for an end to the current Israeli Slaughter of Civilians (actually, I think their words were more along the lines of "conflict"), the Israeli Military increased, yet again, the scope of their attacks by more than 300%. Now that international pressure has been on them for 3 weeks, they realise that their murder cannot continue indefinitely (or can it?), and must step up the pace if they are to anihilate Lebanon and Palestine before they are forced to step their attacks down.

Americans are absolutely blind to the fact that the actions of the IDF, carried out with American weapons and American support, is going to increase recruitment for terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda. For America to get away with supporting murder on a large scale is sickening to rational people the world over, and especially those affected are going to channel their rage towards revenge against those they find responsible. The recently foiled bomb plot in England is only the beginning, and if U.S. policies don't change, it is logical to expect the threat of attacks on America and Britain to increase exponentially.

By sponsoring the Terrorist Regime of Israel, the U.S. government is betraying the legacy of the American founding fathers who called for a government that would not be destructive towards the ends of pursuing a safe and happy life. However, the ignorant Nazi-American population is too far removed from reality to be reached.

If the greatest threat to the world today is Terrorism (as asserted by the U.S. government and their mignions), then America and Israel are the greatest threats of all.
----------
Among the weapons that evidence suggests are being used by Israel, that the U.S. is likely supplying to them, are items that are banned by international law and the Geneva conventions. These include depleted uranium shells and chemical weapons. This receives no coverage in the U.S. media. An ignorant population is easily blinded and led.

The words of British MP George Galloway come close to expressing the rage that is being felt by people the world over.

Misneach, you are absolutely right--the American population is, for most part, ignorant, apolitical, and apt to see issues as black or white. "Either you support us (the government) or you're with the terrorists." This is a ridiculous statement, but since critical thinking is not taught well or at all in schools, many Americans buy this sort of rhetorical tripe. Also, Americans have scant knowledge of the world--in fact we are near the bottom of the world list when our student population is tested on geography. For instance, only one student in my senior-level university class on Research & Writing could identify where Iraq was on a map of the middle-east. None could ID Lebanon or Syria or in Central and south Asia, Afghanistan and Pakistan. This is a four-year state university, not some junior college in a small-town. So if students don't even know where the country is their peers are fighting in, and don't know the difference between Arabs and Afghans and Persians, let alone what a Sunni or Shia or Druze is, they can't be invested in something that isn't even a small cloud on their collective consciousness. And their parents aren't any better (as indicated by my students after they actually learn something about the middle east). The propaganda that the government issues is for the most part ignored by those under 30 because they can't care about something that they don't know anything about, and what they, mistakenly, think doesn't affect them (until they take a trip to Europe--the Europeans their age give them hell for being so ignorant). It's pitiful and maddening.
I see you contributed to my and my students', in the coming semester, blog (school starts next week, but they have the link now). Please keep up the good work and visit us when you can. I'm attaching your blog as a link on ours. Help my students understand another viewpoint. I will supply them with a map and lexicon of ethnic/religious groups.

First off it appears that you have the sme problem with the video that I had. I could not get the thing to not run automatically. Wait till this post is ten post down the list and the audio still plays once you open the web page. Lol. I had to delete the post it was so dam frustrating.

Anyhow, you see with the Nazis and the current administration in America...they both used a ploy to rouse the Patriotism of their Population. For the Nazis it was the burning of the Reichstag which was blamed on Polish terrorists but was in fact commited by Hitlers men. For Bush it was 9/11. Americans are controlled by an overpoweing sense of Patriotism and a paralysing fear of terrorism. What they do not know is that the only thing they have to fear is their own government,.,,,the true terrorists.

If you have not seen V for Vendeta you must. It is such a reflection of where we are today and where we are heading.

People who don't agree with you aren't brainwashed...They just don't agree with you :)
I'm educated...I read...I don't listen to the MSM...I ask questions...I vote the person and not the party...I understand that Americans have little interest in or knowledge of the rest of the world. I look at things much like you do...I just don't agree with you...That doesn't make me a nut...It makes me different than you...That's what makes America great. You must realize that in other nations we would be jailed or even killed for these statements. Try talking about the government the way you have here... if you lived in Iran. Yeah though it seems broken at times. Our democracy is still the best on earth. It's when we can't see though our own clouded lens that "the American population" "silenced by ignorance" are our friends, family and neighbors. It take dialog to solve these problems... not name calling...

Oh yeah...
Thanks for posting on the "Question it now" blog. I like the banter!

This is a load of crap, and you should know better. I am an Iranian, and I completely disagree with you. You are going the wrong way in your analysis, and you are blinded by ideological dislike of America. The way I see it, you are the brainwashed here, not the American people.

Anonymous said...

so you're saying that because I think different than you...I am brain washed? What kind of person are you?!?!

Anonymous said...

PS...I pray for the Iranian people and leadership...along with the American people and leadership. I'm not here to start a fight...I'm here to stop one and start some discussion...we all have common ground...we are human and we live on the same planet. Name calling and finger pointing doesn't get you anywhere. You need to have an intelligent conversation with someone to win them over...don't call people names...that's what children do...

Cal/Reb,

You're right, people who disagree with me are not necessarily brainwashed. However, people who somehow believe that the bush administration is "bringing freedom and democracy" to the world, who believe that somehow the "war on terror" in operation is actually doing anything other than increasing the grave threat of terror, those who believe that somehow erosion of personal freedoms and the dismantling of social welfare programs is somehow in the best interests of the American people, and those who somehow believe that when all of their goverment representatives come from the richest percentage of the population while there is next to no working class representation but yet that government represents the population, I feel that those people are brainwashed.

Perhaps the term "brainwashed" is coming across as a personal insult or "name calling" but it is not inteneded that way. When information input is limited to such an extent that individuals do not have access to a sufficient amount of evidence to make rational decisions on important matters, and as such their views can be to easily manipulated, I consider those individuals to be "brainwashed." I do not mean this as an insult, merely as an observation.

I've been putting together an article on the state of democracy in america, however lack of internet access and time spent making sure the bills get paid have prevented its completion thus far. However, with election times coming up soon in many countries and having just happened in others, there's no better time than now to breach the subject, so what information I have been able to gather will be passed along shortly.

I would like to thank you all for posting comments, I love to hear different opinions on these subjects.

Brilliant! "No justice, no peace." World leaders, not least George Bush, would be well-advised to reconsider their dogmatic propaganda.

Thanks for posting this. Somewhere, in some countries, there are fiery, eloquent speakers with hearts & brains, who see a way out of the disaster Bush is leading us directly into. He loves the misguided notion of being a Teflon-coated "wartime president," though by his personal cowardice during Vietnam, he more than amply demonstrated that he is anything but familiar with the horrors & tragedies of war.

Blog on, friend!
