Memorial Day – Time to Ask Why
BY Gordon Duff | VeteransToday.com
We would be terrorists.
I have friends who are ranking officials, top officers who, when they talk, sound like freedom fighters, people who wish for the clarity that real honor would give, war to defend our families, not wars of profit and conquest that has stained our souls.
A decade ago, they were ready to wipe over a billion people off the face of the earth. Then it came down to “contracting,” whether $600 a day or $2,000 a day. All you had to remember was the mantra, “Al Qaeda is the threat, we must find Osama bin Laden.”
’Tim Osman’ with Ziggy Brzezinski...when Tim was CIA
The evidence for “Al Qaeda” was the same sources Chalbi brought us on Saddam’s WMDs, all air and baloney. There are no large terror rings other than those established during the Cold War, those underwritten by intelligence agencies.
Palestinians fought back, as too many of us know now, fought 62 years of genocide and apartheid that decades of Hollywood and Info-News fiction twisted into terrorism.
They were a people wiped from the face of the earth for trying to live in peace on land others had been given by a rehashed Hittite sun god and his imaginary pseudo-biblical cast of ancient sociopaths and mythologists.
It was Iran Contra that put the permanent stain on America’s intelligence community, some of it undeserved. Key agencies, the few that existed then, deeply resented White House bungling and racketeering under Reagan and Bush.
While the “imagineers” watched the collapse of communism, the real watchers saw something else. We saw a chessboard where America had made moves that, in the end, would “checkmate” the entire west, as we see today.
This is the real Memorial Day, those who died beside me, who died for war after war, always the same reason, the dead, the maimed, the crushed of spirit, all for money from Pearl Harbor to Gettysburg to Concord Green to the Tet to Pork Chop Hill, every death for money alone.
We tell ourselves we gave because of those beside us. Truthfully, we were duped, we were drafted, we were coerced, we were blackmailed, we were lied to and all any of us ever accomplished was to serve our masters and die quietly or kill the poor and innocent.
But World War II was different we are told, the holocaust, the camps, the crazy Nazi gangsters and the Japanese warring class. But who told us? You won’t like the answer.
