Remember

_______________________________________________

The blood pouring out of Palestine must be equally revenged. You must know that the Palestinians do not cry alone; their women are not widowed alone; their sons are not orphaned alone.

November, 2002


The United States and Israeli governments.

Do they think we won't remember?

Do these murderers think we won't remember these crimes for the rest of our lives?

Do they think they will escape the reckoning that must come from this horror?

Is it because those of us that are outraged have no political power and no money with which to sway the world to our whims?

The most basic and powerful weapon of the oppressed is not money.

It's not guns, nor is it bombs.

It is memory.

I'm re-reading Orwell's 1984 for the first time in years. It strikes me this time how much totalitarian regimes fear memory. They are terrified of memory.

Just mention the bombing of the King David hotel by the Irgun to a Zionist. You will see how terrified Israelis are of the memory that their nation was formed by terrorism.

Mention Sabra and Shatila. Watch the denial that follows.

I will never forget watching Colin Powell's presentation to the UN in February of 2003. Never.

I will never forget the words "Shock and Awe" and how that poison became a household word.

I will never forget the murderous reign of George W. Bush.

I will remember to my grave the names of the media cheerleaders that made this slaughter possible.

That people will recall what exactly happened instead of what the official record may show, terrifies the cowardly opportunists that are now carving up the cradle of civilization. They treat the Middle East as if it was part of some board game instead of sovereign nations filled with citizens who simply want to live their lives untouched by victimizing, greedy capitalism.

Look at what America has done to Iraq. Look at what the Israelis have done to the Palestinians.

Can you blame any nation for not wanting to be a part of "Judeo-Christian" values?

As I sit here in the early morning hours, it is quiet and cool. I am far from the hell fires being unleashed by my wicked government and her proxies. As I said, I am a man of little means and even less power.

But I can do one thing that will make the crimes of the greedy, psychoticaly deluded leaders of the United States and Israel impossible to hide forever. I can do one thing that may one day bring justice for their multitude of innocent victims.

I can remember.

(sorry, had to delete my first post - too nasty, sometimes, especially regarding the person now calling himself the mightiest man on Earth)

Remember...

I can remember

i can't decide to remember - i MUST remember

Riverbend had written after a long time - and each time it is harder than the last -

to simply stand her words. What did we allow to happen?

Anne Frank...

Look at what America has done to Iraq

Atrocities...

Rape. The latest of American atrocities. Though it's not really the latest- it's just the one that's being publicized the most. The poor girl Abeer was neither the first to be raped by American troops, nor will she be the last...
In the news they're estimating her age to be around 24, but Iraqis from the area say she was only 14. Fourteen. Imagine your 14-year-old sister or your 14-year-old daughter. Imagine her being gang-raped by a group of psychopaths and then the girl was killed and her body burned to cover up the rape. Finally, her parents and her five-year-old sister were also killed. Hail the American heroes...
It fills me with rage to hear about it and read about it. The pity I once had for foreign troops in Iraq is gone. It's been eradicated by the atrocities in Abu Ghraib, the deaths in Haditha and the latest news of rapes and killings. I look at them in their armored vehicles and to be honest- I can't bring myself to care whether they are 19 or 39. I can't bring myself to care if they make it back home alive. I can't bring myself to care anymore about the wife or parents or children they left behind. I can't bring myself to care because it's difficult to see beyond the horrors. I look at them and wonder just how many innocents they killed and how many more they'll kill before they go home. How many more young Iraqi girls will they rape?
(Emphasis mine)

you did it, America...

that's what the world will remember in the end - not Jefferson, not Franklin, not Edison will remain in the memory of the people...

but the children-raping, children-maiming, children-torturing, children-killing Bush-beasts...

and let me tell you from experience - it doesn't matter if "beasts" suffer. Then the greatest catastrophe (Wilhelm Gustloff) can happen to you - no one will be left to care about. Yes, as long as you are strong, memory doesn't count...

but as the Veda says: time is the destroyer of worlds - and time will beat America and then the time of justice will come...

and the justice will have the face of naked hate and revenge: as Riverbend says:

I don't believe the troops should be tried in American courts. I believe they should be handed over to the people in the area and only then will justice be properly served.

Mussolini was killed by the angry masses - and the GroFaZ (greatest commander of all times), Hitler, killed himself because that "brave commander-in-chief" simply feared revenge...

now you know, why Bush needs 13,000 people to protect his unworthy existence (btw: that guy really dared to copy JFK in Germany!!! He tried to speak German like Kennedy, who could easily walk through German streets without any fear to be harmed. For Bush, the streets were sealed and the inhabitants imprisoned in their houses, but have to pay the taxes for that pampered, coward example of human inferiority. Each German city now prays: Oh Lord help us, spare me from Bush! Oh yes, Bush wouldn't be "harmed" in a physical way here, but even in such a peaceful, tolerant country like Germany, he would have to stand harsh criticism - for so "forgettable" sins like making children suffer en masse)

thank you, Robert, thank you, Nemo, thank you ML - thank you for remembering ME, that America is much more than Bush, because yes, i understand Riverbend...

Keep this quote in mind, from Martin van Creveld, professor of military history at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem:

We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force. Let me quote General Moshe Dayan: "Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother." I consider it all hopeless at this point. We shall have to try to prevent things from coming to that, if at all possible. Our armed forces, however, are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.'

Israel HAS nukes, Iran does not. Unfortunately, if a few nukes hit Europe, people have already been psychologically prepped to automatically blame Iran, even though any such nukes would be launched by Israel. The Israeli-NeoCon EndGame is Armageddon, like a child knocking over the board when he sees he can't win...or nuking the board.

Especially for Again. (And my deepest sympathies to the German people regarding this latest "Imperial" intrusion.) ==== SMART baby! But then, "Out of the mouths of babes comes truth": Get Me out of Here! ==== It was supposed to be a light-hearted photo opportunity showing the gentle side of the world's most powerful man. ==== Unfortunately, nobody told the baby. ... ==== "now you know, why Bush needs 13,000 people to protect his unworthy existence" ==== THAT I've understood for a VERY long time. (So, I dare say, did the baby.)

Especially for Again

Thank you for that link! You made my day: the face of George "My Baby Doesn't Love Me" Bush is just priceless

(btw: excuse me for being silent when mannning gets mad but actually i don't have your language skills to reply to his obviously manpulating strategy, simple but working. I often think he uses the same argumentation tricks as in his previous career: only vague statements, no clear definitions to avoid being refuted, and always accusing others of the own mistakes - so arrogant and egotistic, that the other has to take it very personally, i guess, simply to allow himself to feel "the mastermind" and conveniently distracting from the original discussion - so because he isn't able to criticize himself it doesn't matter what and how you say things. And so i'm silent and enjoy your replies ;-) )

The Israeli-NeoCon EndGame is Armageddon

the link was really scary - and watching Israel going postal, very likely...

"Final Solution" - yes, another twin-relation to the Nazis...

and starting a World War III, destroying the rest of the history of Germany (and the other countries) would be another twin-relation, the cruelst one, i fear. At least, holocaust comparisons will then be allowed, i guess <cynical>

Again: Don't mention it -- the pleasure was all mine, in both cases. :-)
