How Do You Live With It When Your Country Becomes the Fourth Reich!?

You impeach and try the criminal bastards who did it, that's what! A first year law student can make the capital crimes case against George W. Bush now. So - why is the Congress afraid to impeach a prima facie criminal for whom a capital crimes case would be a cake walk?

What the MSM Won't Tell You: US Troops are ordered to kill Iraqi civilians indiscriminately. I won't live with that. Will you? How much longer will American citizens tolerate and by tolerating, enabling the most evil regime since Adolph Hitler. Will you be complicit in mass murder?

Through the general fog of censorship, official bullshit and one-sided reporting, revelations about US-led forces killing Iraqi civilians just keep coming. It's all verifiable. Much of it is admissable in court. Bush is the new "Fuhrer" and US troops are routinely ordered to commit war crimes. If you are in the armed forces and reading this, I suggest that you sober up, grow up and consider the implications of what you have been ordered to do.

We are not talking about renegade units. We are talking about US policy.

If you look, you can find the truth of it. As early as July 2005, reports were beginning to surface about a US policy that included the indiscriminate murder of Iraqi civilians. What was called a "stream of charges" were leveled at US commando units. Specifically, US marines were accused of the murder of the 21-year-old cousin of Samir al-Sumaidaie, the Iraqi government’s ambassador to the UN. It was called at the time a "counterinsurgency operation" and took place in Al Anbar province.

Need I recount the abominable war crime that US forces unleased upon the city of Fallujah.

It was laid waste by the American military and any idiot could make the case - at the international war crimes tribunal - that it was deliberate and it was ordered by higher ups. Possibly the White House itself?

Similarly, the provincial capital, Ramadi, was hit by repeated "sweeps", a euphemism for mass murder. It is said that they are "locating and destroying guerilla cells". I don't believe that. I no longer believe ANY official statement made by "my" government.

At last - I never gave a damn what the Bushies thought about Michael Moore. I still don't. Bush is the lying scum of the earth. His opinion is of less importance to me than a scarab's cargo. There was a time when Michael Moore was among a tiny minority who had the balls to speak up. He is still paying a price for having done so. It is time that we supported Michael Moore. In that spirit, I offer this reprise of the concluding scene of Fahrenheit 9/11.

There is more than I can cover in a single article:

And now for something completely different:

And from another galaxy, it's life, Jim, as we would have liked knowing it.
And from the master: Kubrick.

I have an anecdote that supports exactly what you are saying. The son of one of my friends was with the Marines 1/5 WPNS for the fall of Baghdad. I was with him for his return celebration when he left the Marines (still not sure why he was not forced to stay from the "Stop-Loss" program) and saw a thoughtful young man who realized that he and his fellow troops were basically used as pawns (he had enlisted pre-9/11). I asked him what was his experience over there. The first words out of his mouth to me were, "We killed people for no reason." His father told me he had been ordered to "light-up" (open fire upon) a car rapidly approaching his checkpoint. The car turned out to be carrying women and children, half of whom were killed and the other half wounded. He proceeded to render aid to the survivors screaming in anguish and terror. I have no doubt he bears some scars from that experience.

He was written up (though not by name) in the book A Table in the Presence: The Dramatic Account of How a U.S. Marine Battalion Experienced God's Presence Amidst the Chaos of the War in Iraq by LT. Carey H. Cash. ( He earned a meritorious commendation from action in a firefight when their LAV was hit by an RPG round and he simultaineously returned fire as he tended to a wounded comrade who had half his face blown off in the initial explosion. He had related to me how he could not really stand this particular Marine and was involved in a shouting contest earlier that day.

Impeachment seems to be only a beginning step in resolving the situation anymore. To really punish the guilty you would need something like the Nuremberg war crimes tribunal, with dozens if not hundreds of defendants in the dock at once. These would include high officials in the Department of Justice, NSA, FBI, CIA, DIA, not to mention rank-and-file functionaries. Then there would be the Senators and Congresspersons who were complacent to the point of complicity in the dereliction of their duties of oversight. Oh, and let's not forget the "news" media enablers, both talking heads and editorial heads. It couldn't have happened without their willing co-operation.

Finally, you would have to start a wholesale re-organization of the political and economic system that caused this to happen. Get rid of the Military Industrial Complex, and jail their leaders, no less complicit than the Krupp industrialists of Nazi Germany. Declare the entire lobbying industry illegal, and condemn them in the most vehement terms.

You don't cure cancer with two aspirins. What is needed is nothing short of a second American Revolution.

If Americans haven't figured it out yet, that is as much a tragedy for real patriots as it is for the Iraqi victims. Bush clearly knows about this and there is probable cause to try him for it. It is a CAPITAL CRIME, under US Codes 18, section 2441.

I would settle for a fair trial of Bush and all his complicit minions. A first year law student could make a capital crimes case against Bush right now. A guilty verdict might be revolution enough....for now.

Bush should not be so arrogant. Hitler was smarter than Bush and wound up shooting himself. Hermann Goering's IQ was nearly 150. He too offed himself.

Would someone give Bush a rope with instructions so simple that even an idiot might understand them?
