Post American

Digital cameras and the Internet are now providing a real glimpse of war to an American public that still daydreams about fresh-faced boys and girls marching off to do brave deeds on behalf of democracy. is an Internet site that displays extraordinarily gruesome photographs taken by American soldiers in Iraq. Apparently, the owner of the site exchanges access to pornography for soldiers sending him their war pictures.

“They blinded me”
Below are details of one of the most horrific incidents that took place at the U.S. Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where American soldiers tortured and abused prisoners, whom they labeled enemy-combatants. Omar Deghayes is a British resident who has been tortured by U.S. guards at Guantanamo Bay, suffering violent sexual assaults, near drowning and an attack in which he was blinded. Deghayes said the soldiers tortured him using electric shocks. They also put him in a room with caged snakes when he was in Pakistan before he was taken later to Guantanamo. Deghayes was first jailed in a U.S.-run jail in Afghanistan, which he likened to a "Nazi camp."
And at the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Deghayes said the prison guards came to his cell "singing and laughing" before spraying his face with mace and digging their fingers into his eyes while an officer shouted "More! More." Deghayes’ right eye has been blind ever since, he wrote in recently declassified notes. The assault "was the saddest, my eye has gone a milky white color ... After all I have been through in my life to save it," he said. In his prison notes, Deghayes said troops pushed their fingers in his eyes in 2003 because he refused a rectal search -- a controversial procedure at Guantanamo. Among other abuses Deghayes detailed was having his head flushed in a toilet, feces smeared on his face and water forced up his nose with a pressure hose. At the "Nazi camp" in Baghram, he said soldiers kept him naked, threatened him with sodomy, and chained him to a wall with his hands high above his head. Deghayes said that in Pakistan, he was repeatedly subjected to electric shocks and dunked into a tub of water until he nearly drowned. The room "had very large snakes in glass boxes ... with dim lights," he wrote. "They threatened to leave me there, and let the snakes out."

Soldier Reports More Abuses to Senator
An Army captain who has reported new allegations of detainee abuse in Iraq met Tuesday with Senator John McCain and staff aides on the House Armed Services Committee and gave them additional accounts of abuse in Iraq that other soldiers had sent him in recent days.

White House Losing Ground on Torture
The fact is that years of torturing Iraqis have not produced a single 'nookular' bomb, nor an actual 9-11 perpetrator. "Al Qaeda" is a manufactured front group for US, UK, and Israeli intelligence operatives. The conclusions are clear; the US has been torturing innocent people, sometimes to the death, and this does not sit well with the American people.

Preparing for the Next Pandemic
... depending on the exact meaning of "prepare".

The mysterious deaths of top microbiologists
There is really only one reason to kill off a bunch of scientists. To keep them from doing something they are able to do. What were these scientists able to do? Maybe blow the whistle if an artificially created disease was about to be used in a manner those who created it did not approve of?

US Scientists resurrect 1918 flu, study deadliness
And totally coincidentally at the very same time, the "Avian Flu" shows up, which is fairly innocuous now, but we are assured will soon become very nasty indeed.

Spanish flu
The news is all about "Avian Flu" a disease which is predicted to depopulate much of the Earth although at the moment it remains rather limited in scope. It is worth recalling that this Avian Flu appeared shortly after scientists dug up the remains of victims of the 1918 Spanish Flu buried in the Arctic to play with the genome. Then it is worth remembering that the Spanish flu did not originate in Spain but in a US military base in Kansas.

Some of the soldiers may have been in Spain before coming home, but their diseases originated in their own home-based U.S. Army Camps. Our medical men still use that same dodge. When their own vaccines (required for travel) cause vaccine diseases abroad they use this as grounds for a scare campaign to stampede people into the vaccination centers. Do you remember the Hong Kong Flu and the Asian Flu and the London Flu scares? These were all medically-made epidemics mixed with the usual common colds which people have every year.

It started on a small military base in central Kansas, when one soldier came down with a fever. Within a few hours, about 100 soldiers had reported to the Fort Riley infirmary with the same complaint.
By 1919, one year later, the so-called Spanish flu had spread around the world, killing an estimated 50 million people, with more than 500,000 dead in the U.S. (That included 195,000 just in the single month of October 1918.) The disease took more lives than the black plague, and more than all the wars of the 20th century combined.

1918 killer flu 'came from birds'
US scientists have found the 1918 virus shares genetic mutations with the bird flu virus now circulating in Asia.

2005 Bird Flu Parallels With the 1918 Flu Pandemic
Those findings suggested that avian influenza may be more widespread than originally believed because the total number of infections may have been underestimated.

Martial Law and the Avian Flu Pandemic
The hidden agenda consists in using the threat of a pandemic and/or the plight of a natural disaster as a pretext to establish military rule, under the facade of a "functioning democracy". What Bush's statements suggest is that Congress should enact legislation which will, in practice suspend Constitutional government and allow the Military to intervene in civilian affairs in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act. The latter, however, while still on the books, is in practice already defunct.

A call by George WMD Bush for Congress to give him the power to use the military in law enforcement roles in the event of a bird flu pandemic has been criticized as akin to introducing martial law.
"I think the president ought to have all options on the table," Bush said, then corrected himself, "all assets on the table -- to be able to deal with something this significant." Bush began discussing the possibility of changing the law banning the military from participating in police-type activity last month, in the aftermath of the government's sluggish response to civil unrest following Hurricane Katrina.

US Has been preparing to turn America into a military dictatorship
"No one will fully comprehend the historical implications and strategy of fascist corporativism except the true fascist manipulator or the researcher who is able to slash through the smoke screens and disguises the fascists set up."

A little known feature of the President's FEMA emergency powers is the ability to order all ATMs across the country to shut down. The mechanism is already in place to enforce such an order in only a few minutes' time.

OCCUPIED BAGHDAD, The New Iraq -- A suicide bomb blast Wednesday inside a Shiite Muslim mosque in Hilla, south of the capital, killed at least 25 people and wounded 87 others.
"We're seeing progress on the ground," Bush said. "And we're also seeing political progress on the ground."

The new insurgency: Foreign, untrained teenagers
The majority of fucking foreign fighters in Iraq are U.S. Occupation Troops.

The Cost Of The Lies And The Price Of Truth
I remember the day before 9/11, Aspartame-inventor Rumsfeld held a press conference to announce that $2.3 TRILLION was missing from Pentagon coffers and could not be located. Amid the following months of dust and rubble at the World Trade Center, the question of this missing money was never heard again. Of course, stealing trillions is legal; punks who rob drive through burger joints of $39.95 are the ones who get the chair.

The cost of 9/11 lies may well exceed anything reasonable minds could possibly predict, since it formally changed at least the official public perception of the world from a relatively reasonable collection of prosperous nations into an enforced structure of slaves to the European banking establishment. The alternative to acquiescence to this creeping imprisonment of the world is to undergo the society extermination program now being so hideously performed by Western madmen on the smoldering carcass of Iraq. Or maybe that's the way it always has been, and the 9/11 coverup merely stripped away the last veil of pretense that human society was actually honest - which is what we try to teach our children - as opposed to the coercive, destructive beast it is now so clearly demonstrating itself to be.

The 9/11 coverup also further eroded the deteriorating reputation of the American people, who almost overnight - thanks to George W. Bush and his fascist followers - became a despicable group of irredeemable thugs who sanction torture for political purposes. The American people, compelled by deliberately false propaganda from their corporate media apparatus, also approved the destruction of the most precious conceptual jewel in their Constitutional crown - the elimination of people's right to confront their accusers - and ended a tradition of freedom that began with the Magna Carta in 1215 A.D.

A notable moral scandal in human history - America's current worldwide gulag full of hapless innocents - remains virtually unmentioned in the empty echoes of its straitjacketed corporate media.

What the truth is worth is never as important as how badly you need it. As a consequence, the truth usually can be acquired for free, and it's the lies so many people make money off that turn out to be so expensive.

Flipping that coin to the other side, lies are where the real money is: Public relations campaigns for rich corporations intent on fleecing the public with the latest trendy gimmick, or even better, government contracts within which the principal contractor rakes half the money off the top, and subcontracts the actual job (if it actually is an actual job) to an unqualified subcontractor, who completely botches the job (if he even attempts to do it in the first place) and nobody checks to ever see if the job was done at all. Then the process begins anew to fix the first mess. These people get paid well. Think about all the people who've gotten rich from that process. And reflect on the fact that they are in charge of the whole world now.

There's simply no money in the truth. That's why we stopped getting it. Yet, you can't tell us money doesn't matter when we're all very hungry. If you don't have any money, preaching what you think is the truth is definitely not the way to get any. Which is probably why I don't have any. I know, I come from a long and noble line, and they never got paid, either.

The whole sorry mess makes me often reflect that fractional reserve banking, usury, and the Western corporate wraith that now poisons the world with its stupid shoppers' mind control are things that are really only good for building financial empires; they're not good at all for families, children, or the health of average people, and certainly not for governments. Usury has turned all governments into shills for powerful but largely invisible business interests, and that's not good for people, either, only for empires.

The only trouble with empires is that real and free people don't live in them, only slaves do. Lying, sycophantic, untrustworthy slaves. Let's hear it .... "USA! USA! USA!"

So when do we get invaded to remove the rogue government that spies on its own people, gases its own people during anti War protests, stages "terrorist" attacks, holds crooked elections, attacks other nations without cause, and uses torture on innocent people looking for WMD that don't exist?
