Are There War Criminals Living In America, Canada, England, Germany, France and other NATO Countries?



 “We have to ask ourselves how it can be that the world’s worse criminals—people responsible for the death and displacement of millions of peoples—occupy high office...?” Paul Craig Roberts. The Unz Review, March 9, 2016.

According to the video links below, people in “high office” planned a number of wars.
“General Wesley Clark: Wars Were Planned - Seven Countries In Five Years”

“France's Former Foreign Minister: UK Government Prepared War in Syria Two Years Before 2011 Protests”

The evidence in these videos spoken by credible persons raises very serious questions, not only about the hundreds of thousands of refugees, but also about the immense slaughter, destruction and death in countries decimated and destroyed in planned wars. Surely these are war crimes and should be cause for present-day Nuremberg trials to be convened.

“The Nuremberg trials were a series of trials held between 1945 and 1949 in which the Allies prosecuted German military leaders, political officials, industrialists, and financiers for crimes they had committed during World War II.”

“Most war crimes fall into one of three categories: crimes against peace, crimes against humanity, and traditional war crimes. Crimes against peace include the planning, commencement, and waging of aggressive war, or war in violation of international agreements. Aggressive war is broadly defined to include any hostile military act that disregards the territorial boundaries of another country, disrespects the political independence of another regime, or otherwise interferes with the sovereignty of an internationally recognized state....”

The “sovereignty” of a number of countries has been destroyed by those who parrot language like “rule of law, democracy and human rights.” Some of these “governments” who call themselves “democratic” have reportedly “allied” themselves with terrorist groups.

“A declassified secret US government document obtained by the conservative public interest law firm, Judicial Watch, shows that Western governments deliberately allied with al-Qaeda and other Islamist extremist groups to topple Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad.” Nafeez Ahmed. May 22, 2015.

Syria, just like Iraq and Libya, are hellholes of destruction; killing and slaughter are all brought about by the “democratic west” in conjunction with head choppers and other terrorist allies. The deadly fallout from all these wars is millions of refugees, hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians dead, maimed or contaminated by depleted uranium, peoples' homes decimated, destroyed and reduced to smouldering rubble, thousands of soldiers dead or dying and having to fight for their veterans' benefits, and families and children traumatized, with some children left parentless. They, too, are victims of this institutionalized evil that rules over us in what is called a supposed “democracy.” Is that not a sick joke? Wars planned in secret by the unaccountable, some with an agenda of regime change.

One could go on and on showing the treachery and the raging hypocrisy of the “right honourable” rulers, past and present, who are responsible for the deaths and dislocation of millions of people today. The victims' countries, cities and homes are destroyed by this ongoing madness of militarism and the missile maniacs in positions of power. They destroy countries in order to “save” them, and create more enemies while doing so. I believe some of these “leaders” are a curse on society. No welcoming of these unfortunate refugees by those governments who participated in bombing these countries who never invaded us can camouflage the fact that some of YOU, “leaders,” caused these hellish tragedies in the first place by voting for illegal wars. Bloody dangerous hypocrites are YOU:

Surely it is a war crime to plan wars on countries that never invaded you, isn't it? The fallout from these wars is horrendous. Hell upon earth has been, and is being, created. Yet the monstrous crimes of the perpetrators are being covered up by most of the corporate monopoly media.

Therefore, one has to ask, are the media complicit in these crimes against humanity? I believe, not only are most of the corporate media failing in their duty to expose this criminality, but the arms dealers are making massive, blood-soaked profits from these wars on the helpless human race, as are a number of former “world leaders” that are giving speeches and reaping huge amounts of dollars talking about the carnage some of them helped create.

“Now, a former senior U.S. intelligence official is publicly urging bombing of Syrian government targets and the killing of Iranians and Russians who are legally inside Syria at the invitation of the internationally recognized government. In other words, not only does the U.S. government operate with breathtaking hypocrisy in the Syrian crisis, but it functions completely outside international law.”  Ray McGovern Consortium News, August 20, 2016.

The people causing this demonic evil, as the saying goes, are getting away with murder. The so-called “rule of law” does not apply to these villains of vice. Instead, they parade on the “world stage” a degenerate bunch of war criminals doing their “part” in destroying, decimating, bombing, blitzing and blasting humanity; and they call this “saving people from terrorists.” Moreover, some of them are funding, arming and training these same terrorists they are supposed to be fighting. Could they be called fiends from hell?

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.”
William Shakespeare

Therefore, in closing I ask:
“Will Nobody Arrest the War Criminals? Or Are Gangsters in Control”?

Come Join Us




Come join us, and we will give you a free uniform
We will teach you to kill and you will be transformed
We will teach you to obey, and carry out orders
Even if they are wrong, and could be called murder

Come join us, as we kill children with drones
Kill their parents too and destroy their homes
The “rule of law and human rights,” does not apply
When we send corporate made hellfire, down from the sky

We will train you to bomb and invade other countries
Destroying them completely, as corporate cannibals make money
You will help them make their obscene bloodstained profits
As you fight and perhaps die, amidst exploding rockets

War is a game and it needs you to participate
You are the “boots on the ground” the servants of the state
You will help create refugees and hell upon earth
Conditioned to obey: for all that is bloody “worth”!

You will “own the podium” in these “games of war”
While others get baubles on the Olympic shores
The masses need “bread and circuses” to divert their attention
As you kill, bomb and maim in other directions

Still, orders are orders and you are willing to serve
As the think tanks, the politicians and the corporations observe
Like the people you kill, you are disposable too
Are you in the hands of a sick hellish crew?

They have been known to finance both sides in war
But they don’t take part in all the atrocities and gore
They need you to do their dirty work without any fuss
So please, please hurry, and come and join us

Are the Establishment Terrified of Getting Trumped?




“If 2016 taught us anything, it is that if the establishment’s hegemony is imperiled, it will come together in ferocious solidarity — for the preservation of their perks, privileges and power....
Donald Trump’s success, despite the near-universal hostility of the media, even much of the conservative media, was due in large part to the public’s response to the issues he raised.” Patrick J. Buchanan, August 12, 2016, The American Conservative.

The scurrilous media hysteria about Donald Trump [1] and its shrieks, howls, and endless barrage of babbling B.S. is a sight to behold. Still, it’s not only the media that is going bananas. Some of the “national security” establishment in a letter have criticized him also. Trump replied to them by saying this:

“The names on this letter are the ones the American people should look to for answers on why the world is a mess, and we thank them for coming forward so everyone in the country knows who deserves the blame for making the world such a dangerous place. They are nothing more than the failed Washington elite looking to hold onto their power, and it’s time they are held accountable for their actions.”
  Source: Breitbart news article, by Alex Swoyer, August 8, 2016.

When one sees the state of the world today, one has to agree with Mr. Trump that those who were or are in positions of power need to be ‘held accountable for their actions.’

I believe, for to long, the words “national security,” have been used to keep people in the dark about what is really going on. All kinds of atrocities and acts can be hidden by using those words and make us all “prisoners of the system.” [2]

Another former member of the CIA and a supporter of the system also criticized Mr. Trump. An article in the “Unz Review” headlined:
"I Ran the CIA" Man Piles on Trump
Michael Morell "Calls it like he sees it." Or does he?
Article by Philip Giraldi  August 9, 2016, said this:

Michael Morell is, in fact, a product of Washington groupthink and a major beneficiary of Establishment politics, the very tradition that Hillary Clinton represents. Many readers have no doubt seen his serious, somewhat intense gaze as a television expert on terrorism. His career trajectory depends on there being major threats to the United States and this requires him to be constantly searching for enemies. Morell has covered for Hillary in the past, most notably over Benghazi where he altered the talking points of his Congressional testimony to make CIA’s assessment closer to Clinton’s version of events. That he has attached himself to the Hillary Clinton campaign should surprise no one.... Morell, also a CIA torture apologist and a George Tenet protégé, was deeply involved in many of the intelligence failures that preceded and followed 9/11....” Philip Giraldi, August 9. 2016, The Unz Review.

And an article at Consortium News of August 11, 2016 headlined: ‘Sage’ Advice That’s Nuttier Than Trump by Larry Johnson, had this to say:

“Mike Morell’s performance as CIA Director and his subsequent efforts to portray himself as a sage voice in the foreign policy arena borders on criminal negligence and utter incompetence....
With respect to Syria I will repeat a point I have made previously. Part of the blame for the bloody civil war there lies with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and has been made more deadly and bloody because Obama/Clinton helped provide weapons and training to radical Islamists. Come to think of it, Mike Morell was part of that process. Besides calling into question his judgment let me add to the bill of particulars that he also is a war criminal.... I suppose there is one bit of good news with respect to Morell – he resigned from CBS as a talking head and we won’t have to listen to his bullshit as much (I hope). Let’s put the former Director of the CIA up against Trump and what Trump is saying. Morell favors actions that could provoke a war with a nuclear-armed Russia and Trump wants to have a better relationship with Russia. So you tell me: Who is the real reckless, dangerous moron?” Larry Johnson, Consortium News, August 11, 2016.

In closing, when one sees the “big shots” of the system, the corporate media and those who claim to “know best” what is good for the world, criticize Donald Trump, one has to ask: “Do they have something to hide”?

Therefore, I ask: “Are the Establishment Terrified of Getting Trumped”?

The House of Blood




Its color is white but it is red with blood
The residents’ name should really be mud
Instead they get fancy honors and titles
Wars for them is a musical recital

The hum of their drones flying through the air
Are killing children without due care
This is hellishly called “collateral damage”
These are the words of the resident savage

Immaculately dressed in a business suit
An eloquent speaker is this callous brute
Surrounded by sycophants and flunkeys too
Evil is what these people plan and do

War and more war is their hellish aim
Are they all devils and bloody insane?
Countries are reduced to smoking rubble
These well-dressed maniacs are big trouble

People are fleeing and dying too
From the hell produced by this satanic crew
Refugees are drowning in deadly waters
Trying to escape the endless slaughters

These helpless victims once had homes
Now they have nothing, and just roam
Helpless, homeless people on the move
With nothing really left to improve

The perpetrators call their crimes “bringing democracy”
Surely creating hell on earth is really hypocrisy
But when criminals rule there is no justice
And law and order is totally corrupted

The war criminals slogan is “responsibility to protect”
They tell that to the people whose countries they wrecked
Those still alive can hear the bombs explode and thud
 A hellish “courtesy” from the House of Blood

The Media’s Hysteria about Donald Trump




“The widespread disdain for Donald Trump and the fear of what his presidency might mean have led to an abandonment of any sense of objectivity by many Trump opponents and, most notably, the mainstream U.S. news media....” Robert Parry, Consortium News, August 4, 2016.

Watching TV “news” and seeing “newspaper” articles in North America, U.K., Europe and some other countries mostly all criticizing Donald Trump is to see and hear a feeding frenzy of corporate propaganda. It is almost as if the guy was a mass murderer.  (Instead it is they, the international elites that have committed and abetted war crimes in various countries who should be vilified.) The way the biased word warriors are screaming from their platforms of hate brings to mind Orwell’s "1984 2 Minutes of Hate."  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WupvCZhKMnM

Which raises the question, why do the establishment and its media mouthpieces hate Trump? Do they perceive him as a danger to their managed and marketed control of the political and monetary system?  It’s almost like Orwell’s “1984” where endless war is promoted, and “Big Brother” is watching and spying on the “proles” (learn more here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proles).  Are we today’s proles controlled by the ruling establishment?

 “... In Orwell's book, there's a global war that has been going on seemingly forever, and as the book's hero, Winston Smith, realizes, the enemy keeps changing. One week we're at war with Eastasia and buddies with Eurasia. The next week, it's just the opposite. There seems little to distinguish the two adversaries, and they are used primarily to keep the populace of Oceania, where Smith lives, in a constant state of fear, thereby making dissent unthinkable -- or punishable. Today we have the so-called war on terror, with no end in sight, a generalized societal fear, suspension of certain civil liberties, and an ill-defined enemy who could be anywhere, and anything.”  Lewis Beale, Special to CNN August 3, 2013. http://www.cnn.com/2013/08/03/opinion/beale-1984-now/index.html
 
The “enemy” in today’s “1984,” albeit we are in 2016, is Donald Trump. He is portrayed as a danger to the status quo and its control over the masses. Trump has criticized the  NATO monster, The establishment, and the war profiteers, and their media shills are foaming at the mouth that their “precious” war machine might be under scrutiny if he gets elected. (There is an abundance of info on NATO at link below.)

And a warring, unctuous, hypocritical, elected “leader” whose time in power will soon be over, is also on record as saying Trump is “unfit to serve as president.” Yet, this political leader has been called a “war criminal” and is accused of killing children with drones. So who is the one really “unfit”?

Meanwhile, the media drones on daily, in its word wars against Trump. This is the same corporate media owned by the establishment elites that spreads its never ending propaganda day and night and covers up the treachery of the war criminals in our midst. Therefore I ask, Are the Corporate Media and Others Covering Up The Treachery of The War Criminals?

These war criminals have planned endless wars:
Below are links to videos, where reputable people are speaking. These people are stating numerous wars were and are planned:
“General Wesley Clark: Wars Were Planned - Seven Countries In Five Years”

“France's Former Foreign Minister: UK Government Prepared War in Syria Two Years Before 2011 Protests”

Surely it is war crimes to plan wars on countries that never invaded you, isn’t it? The fallout from these wars is horrendous. Hell upon earth has been and is being created. Yet, the monstrous crimes of the perpetrators are being covered up by most of the corporate monopoly media. Therefore, one has to ask, are the media complicit in these crimes against humanity? I believe, not only are most of the corporate media failing in their duty to expose this criminality, but the arms dealers are making massive blood soaked profits from these wars on the helpless human race. As are a number of former “world leaders” that are giving speeches, and reaping huge amounts of dollars talking about the carnage some of them helped create. I believe what we are seeing is institutionalized evil and ordinary people everywhere are the victims. Many pay for it all with their taxes, and others, like the soldiers and civilians, pay with their lives. It is almost impossible to put into words, to describe, the evil filth that is in control and using its power to impose these heinous crimes on countries that never invaded us. Therefore, one has to ask, are we in the hands of monsters who are “The Embodiment of Evil?”

I believe what we are seeing is this:

Meanwhile, as all these atrocities, depravities and treachery are happening daily, we are being subjected to the media’s hysteria about Donald Trump. What does this say about the “search for truth” and “investigative journalism”?

“Polls shows that journalism is one of the least respected professions in the country, and with Trump calling out media organizations for their bias, widespread slanted reporting is bound to reinforce this point — and to backfire. Trump’s campaign is throwing down the gauntlet to the political class. If journalists are seen as the mouthpiece of that class, they may soon find themselves covering Trump’s inauguration.” Justin Raimondo,  Los Angeles Times, August 2, 2016.

The Land Where Debauchery is “Good”




There is a land where debauchery is politically friendly and “good”
People march in summer parades and some are totally nude
The parades are led by “dignitaries” and “honourable” politicians too
The “leader” of the land takes part, and leads this motley crew

The media also participate and promote the parades on the “news”
Should their headlines be: “The promotion of bare bottom views"?
The police are also marching and taking in the scene
At one time people walking naked, were charged with being obscene

Has the “law” become debauched, and a disgrace to law and order?
Is the land’s “finest” now suffering from a perverted lawless disorder?
Or do some marchers have special status and immunity from prosecution?
Because the “leader” of the land is praising the participants and giving them absolution!

How can people be arrested for walking totally naked?
If the leader of the land is in the parade and feeling very elated
Oh well, at least he keeps his clothes on even though he’s verbose
Is this just a case of a “political emperor” having no clothes?

Is gross nakedness in public now called a “community” of “diversity”?
When at one time this obscene behaviour was called, a flaunting of perversity
Should innocent children really be in any parades of “adult” nakedness?
Does the “leader” of the land and his followers have no shame left?

Still, one must not criticize a land that’s already going to pot
The “leader” is a “poll” star and rated very “hot”
He holds a position of power, and is one “sunny dude”
And he presides over a land, where debauchery is really “good”

The Harridan from Hell



                     
The Harridan from hell is hoping to rule
Praised and applauded by many a fool
Supported by media and other “war criminals” in power
The Harridan awaits her chance to “flower”

If she should keep “blooming” in her evil domain
The harvest of her production will be bloody and insane
The hellish killing and slaughter will continue unabated
The Harridan from hell can never be satiated

She will be aided and abetted by other devils from hell
The profiteers of destruction and the killers as well
From womb to tomb the blood will run red
A gathering of criminals that creates many dead

She has been called a “war criminal” and a “murderer” as well
And is accused of aiding the earth’s plunderers that create hell
Fortunes are being made with her sick approval
And she takes contributions without any scruples

Hell on earth continues with the Harridan in control
She will spell more ruination for many a soul
 Many more countries will be laid waste
To satisfy this Harridan of the “human race”

The “rule of law” does not apply to her
No penalties or jail time does she incur
Does evil rule and is justice dead?
Is this what happens when decency has fled?

Hearing her cries and shrieks for war
The people of the earth will see more gore
This “angel of death” has evil to sell
Can anyone stop the Harridan from Hell?

The War Gangs and “War Criminals” of NATO to Meet In Poland




“I think that NATO is itself a war criminal” – Harold Pinter

“The NATO Summit of Heads of State and Government in Warsaw, Poland will be held on 08–09 July 2016. The meetings will be chaired by the NATO Secretary General.”

The “Secretary General” of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has appeared and been interviewed on TV in Canada. None of the media in Canada has asked him any hard questions regarding NATO. Instead, we have political “hosts” on TV stations and newspaper media covering up important information on the depredations of NATO. (Perhaps they are ignorant?) For instance, NATO has reportedly been helping terrorists by bombing countries that never invaded us. Libya is one example; there are others. That country is now in chaos and Isis and other terrorist organizations are running rampant there. All “thanks” to NATO that called itself the “Friends of Libya.”

“Elements of al-Qaeda and other Islamic extremist groups were known to be key players in the NATO-backed uprising in Libya from the beginning, but now it appears that prominent Jihadists and terrorists are practically leading the revolution with Western support.”
The New American August 30, 2011.

Dennis Kucinich, American Congressman, writing in the Guardian U.K Newspaper July 6, 2011 said this:
“First, the [Libyan] war is illegal under the United States constitution and our War Powers Act, because only the US Congress has the authority to declare war and the president has been unable to show that the US faced an imminent threat from Libya.”
http://graysinfo.blogspot.ca/2011/10/war-criminals-who-bombed-libya.html

Libya, reportedly, was a war crime of massive proportions and its perpetrators are free. Some are still in positions of power while others are collecting big fat pensions after helping to destroy that country. Some people tried to warn these dangerous political idiots what would happen. But to no avail.

“Some officers in the Canadian Forces tried to raise concerns early on in the war that removing Gadhafi would play into the hands of Islamic extremists, but military sources say those warnings went unheeded. Later, military members would privately joke about Canada’s CF-18s being part of ‘al-Qaida’s air force,’ since their bombing runs helped to pave the way for rebel groups aligned with the terrorist group....” David Pugliese, Ottawa Citizen, March 1, 2015.

Powerful politicians in various countries have formed themselves into political gangs and hold memberships in NATO, which enables them to use the military from their member countries to invade, decimate, bomb, and degrade. (Degrade is a polite word used to disguise killings; collateral damage is another one.) They also use the words “coalition” and “allies” which helps them to make their war obscenities sound “respectable” and acceptable to the masses. The end result of this devastation by the war gangs is
“The NATO-rious Member War Machine That Produces Refugees”

“The Western leaders and media stay silent about the military intervention and regime change, interventions that have torn the refugees’ homelands apart and resulted in civil war, state collapse and extremely violent conditions lasting for long periods.” James Paul, September 16, 2015.

Now “Western support” is “helping” the refugees that it created in the first place. And here in Canada the government and opposition at the time, and some of them still in politics today, voted to bomb Libya in an “illegal war.” Does it get more hypocritical than that? And the Canadian media are too dumb or devious to make the connection.
We should remember “The Rule and Roles of Dangerous Hypocrites”

“But what was it that gave rise to that massive refugee crisis?
The answer: It was the U.S. national-security state’s regime change operations in the Middle East, including NATO’s bombing campaign as part of its regime-change operation in Syria.” Jacob C. Hornberger, June 27, 2016.

These same NATO war gangs also involved themselves in Syria:
“The civil war in Syria has turned the country into a refugee-maker....
But it’s not just Syria that’s sending refugees. Many more come from Iraq and Afghanistan, two other countries shattered by bungled Western military interventions....Then there are the refugees from Libya. A country the media and political establishment would rather forget because it represents another disastrous military decision.... when NATO helped a coalition of ambitious rebels overthrow the Gaddafi government, the refugee floodgates opened.” Casey Research, October 8, 2015.

There is overwhelming evidence that not only the NATO war in Libya, but also the wars in Iraq and Syria and other countries were planned and plotted by powerful villains in positions of power. Yet, these hypocrites and ghouls of the earth accuse Russia of “aggression” while they themselves have decimated and destroyed numerous countries. This war conspiracy has resulted in “The 21st Century WAR CRIMES: Millions Dead, Millions of Refugees, Soldiers Dead and Maimed, Countries Destroyed, Children Contaminated, and the War Criminals are FREE.”

There is an over abundance of information that NATO has left untold suffering, misery, starvation, death, and destruction in its bloody illegal wars. One could call them, “The War Arsonists,” and “The Producers of Hell on Earth.”

Populations and cities are decimated; fiery smoking hells of rubble are everywhere; civil wars are raging in the countries that were “liberated;” soldiers are dead, dying, or maimed, and some have even to fight for their pensions. Meanwhile, the dangerous instigators in charge, with fancy titles and dressed in fancy finery continue to get away with their murderous plans. This could be called “The Lies, Treachery, and Madness of Militarism”

One would think the corporate media would be exposing the various depredations and atrocities of NATO. Instead, we have a hysterical, giggling host on a political show not asking incisive questions when interviewing a NATO “leader.” Another TV host, who sometimes wears a hat with NATO emblazoned on it, is another propaganda pusher for the warmongering NATO establishment. And of course there are the “war correspondents” at various corporate “newspapers” whose forte is warmongering.  All of these are responsible, along with so-called “think tanks” and “war colleges,” for the propaganda being peddled that allows the bloody NATO monster to continue its billions of dollars, taxpayer-funded evil assaults and atrocities on humanity. Still, all this is not surprising; we even had people at a parliamentary gathering cheering and applauding a “leader” of a NATO country, who has been called a “war criminal,” and is accused of killing children with drones. What does that say about the mindset of the sick establishment and its media apologists? Therefore, I ask, Are the Corporate Media and Others Covering Up The Treachery of The War Criminals?
