VOICES - War Crimes USA
As we stand now, there is one rule for the US / NATO and another for Russia / China and the rest of the world. Undeniably, US / NATO forces and commanders are committing war crimes daily and are losing the War on Terror because of their outright incompetence.
Read Code Name Dawn where we discuss the International Criminal Court, ICC, and how every single Western leader since the late George HW Bush would be arrested for murder and war crimes if the law was applied evenly. These leaders are getting away with murder whilst pointing fingers at everyone else.
“If the Nuremberg laws were applied, then every post-war American president would have been hanged.” Noam Chomsky.
There is an enormous amount of deceit coming from the Pentagon, White House and other NATO states, especially London and Paris, still having delusions of their former glory. When you walk around with the “Beacon of Freedom,” “exceptionalism,” “holier-than-thou,” and “Leader of the Free World” mantle you better live up to your claims which are today based on echo chamber antics and not reality. There is a wall of silence and dismissal of what is shouting to be heard and ought to be heard.
I searched for answers, trying to understand why and how the most overfunded Military in the world commits war crimes as if it has no fear of being taken to task. And that is exactly the problem. There is an outright culture of coverups, denial, lying, blaming everyone else combined with a lack of discipline. In fact, the problem can be summarised in one word, “arrogance.”
It seems they get away with their panic mode shooting, destroying everything and have no sense of surgical strikes whilst enjoying the status of “heroes” back home; the public are too blind to see what we can see from the outside.
You will read in this book where the US Military raped, murdered and abused / tortured their way across Iraq and everywhere else they are deployed. They even rape and murder their own female soldiers. You may take for granted that war and other crimes will happen wherever you find a low standards military where officers have lost control. There is nothing to be proud of regarding a lack of discipline in your Armed Forces.
“The collapse of good conscience and the absence of accountability and public scrutiny have led to crimes against humanity and violations of international law.” - Nelson Mandela.
VOICES - War Crimes USA, is a hard look at recent war crimes committed by the US Military in various countries.
The author explores where the leadership element, civil and military, went wrong and are still going wrong. He concludes that there is an outright culture of coverups, denial, lying, blaming everyone else combined with a lack of discipline that is found in a low standards military which claims to be the best in the world.
Whenever the servicemen are caught and exposed, a coverup follows with boring consistency and by doing so, denying their victims justice and enabling the abusers and abuses. If military justice does take place it is often just a slap on the wrist with such a light sentence that no message is sent, none. And tomorrow, it will happen again.
The problem can be summarised in one word, “arrogance.” Since the US Military gets away with their panic-stricken shooting, destroying everything and have no sense of surgical strikes, whilst enjoying the status of “heroes” back home, the public is too blind to see what we see from the outside.
You will read in this book where the US Military raped, murdered and abused / tortured their way across Iraq and everywhere else they are deployed.
