The Unspoken Holocaust

Posted on by 0 comment

Millions of civilians have died as a direct and indirect result of US and NATO-lead actions in foreign countries, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea, and Indochina (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia) has resulted in an estimated 6 million plus civilian deaths.

Concern is typically reserved for US troops and the other casualties and deaths virtually ignored.  No monuments, no headlines, no concern.

Most of these deaths were in Vietnam and the rest of Indochina, but the numbers for Iraq are just as urgent:  estimates range from 400,000 to 650,000 civilian deaths since the Americans ‘occupied’ Iraq.

In World War II, there were similar ‘genocides’ happening with Ukranians, gypsies, homosexuals and others in addition to the Jews.

Are these examples above America’s genocide?

MayDay 2011: Iraq, Libya and Oil

Posted on by 3 comments

Memos that are no longer secret expose a link between oil firms and the invasion of Iraq, according to the Independent in the UK.  They’re just stating what most people feel is obvious:  taxpayers in the UK, the US, Canada and elsewhere are funding massive military operations through debt expansion so that we can protect and collect crude resources around the world.

What does this have to do with the Canadian election?  Everything.

Most Canadians did NOT want Canada to be involved with the invasion of or continued military presence in Iraq, but two people stood out in the days preceding the invasion:

  • Stephen Harper
  • Michael Ignatieff

The NDP and the Green Party have been opposed to the invasion of Iraq.

If you’re a pacifist and you’re sick of the gradual expansion of the US throughout the world, the choice in the election should be obvious, but there’s one catch:  Libya.

Unfortunately, it looks like ALL of the parties (except the Greens since they didn’t have any MPs when this decision was made) have failed Canadians as they fueled up the jets for the ‘no-fly zone’ protection of Libya.

When you have a chance, ask your candidate and the leaders of each party where they stand on Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and even Iran.  All are part of the expansionist plans of the US and peace-seeking Canadians do not want to be a part of it.

Canada needs leadership that will steer us off this disastrous course.  We need to take a back seat with NATO and we need to show true leadership with the UN and organizations that are committed to peace throughout the world.

Not-so-secret Agreement for Shell

It looks like Shell is going to be one of the major beneficiaries of the occupation of Iraq.

This story
, from Raw Story, exposes the sweetheart (although non-binding) deal that Shell has struck up with the existing government of Iraq.

But it’s not about the oil.

It was the oil all along

It’s not something that comes across mainstream media often, so I’m relieved to hear someone admitting that the Iraq war was really only about the oil.

Here’s the full story from Bill Moyers.

Now, for those of you who were following this story, you’ll know that this ‘news’ came out a couple of weeks ago. I have to admit that I’ve been delinquent with my posts, mainly in an effort to get my book climax out (read here for more details).

While Rome burns, these people have clearly found something to fiddle with.
