At this point in history it is no longer a disputable fact that the forces of the American Imperial Empire are turning out to be the hegemonic monster regime of the emerging 21st century. That I live in a country where the majority of the population either does not grasp this fact or chooses to ignore it only makes the graveness of the current situation all that much more dire.
The U.S. has spent, so far, $210 billion on the war in Iraq which everyone outside the U.S. knows was lost the day that Shock and Awe began. Shock and Awe? Does anyone feel proud to be from a country that launches large scale offensive warfare, on innocent civilian targets, under such a sleazy smarmy banner of self-righteousness? It makes me sick to my stomach to think that some of my wealth was confiscated to produce the horrific violence and death of such a campaign.
It feels more and more like 1930's Germany every day. Instead of Warsaw it is Fallujah, Ramadi instead of Kiev. The Nazi Fuhrer told the Germans he was giving these savages a history by invading them. For them the sweet fruits of social democracy were just around the corner after conquest and the imposition of a civilized order.
Just before the holidays the current American Fuhrer came clean, to what many of us have known for years, that the U.S. Constitution is just so much toilet paper to greedy tinpot tyrants like himself and Count Cheney. That this is the closest we have come to realizing a true police state in the whole history of this dank republic is pretty scary. Not since Emperor Roosevelt bombed millions of innocent civilians and sent every person of Japanese ancestry to a concentration camp, or when Lincoln imitated Napolean, has a dictator president like this emerged so free to do what he pleases. It is a low point in history that cannot long be sustained or bring about a positive outcome in the short term.
All I can say is God bless the Muslims who are determined to take this Beast down. God bless them all! Each American bomb brings new soldiers to the fold of righteous revenge. A fatal fatwa upon your house!
Sic semper tyrannis!
