  • American Empire

    World is responsible for the cancerous growth of American empire. The world lacks leaders. Nobody asking Mr. Bush to show the WMDs....because everybody knows the power of American money. This is not he war against terrorism. you cant won a war against terrorism by committing terrorism. native Indians, black slaves, Hiroshima, Nagasaki ,Vietnam ..Yes the history of American empire is great...and it is still dancing in the blood of millions of poor and defenseless people around the world...

    the sad thing is that. Majority of the American public don’t know what is going on. there media is systematically brainwashing them.

    i pray for the destruction of American empire..........

    In the last five decades, America has attacked no less than two dozen
    countries. In the last 4-6 years, it has bombed four countries.
    Since World War II, the United States actually dropped bombs on 23
    countries,supported 20 different coups throughout the world, and the CIA was responsible for half a
    dozen assassinations of political heads of state.

    it has 200,000 soldiers permanently stationed in dozens of countries around the globe.
    Its global military presence expandsevery year
    It has the world's largest stockpile of smallpox, anthrax, and other biological weapons
    It has aprx.30,000 tons of chemical weapons.
    It has the world's largest stockpile of nuclear weapons
    It refuses to renounce the first strike use of nuclear weapons.
    It won't commit to refraining from using nuclear weapons against non-nuclear weapon states.
    It is the only country to ever use nuclear weapons.
    It refuses to sign a treaty to establish a international criminal court that could prosecute war crimes free from its
    It issues ultimata to other countries , and
    when the ultimata are rejected, it says the other side refused to negotiate.
    When the other side begs to negotiate, it's bombed.

    By their air strikes in Iraq, the USA and Great-Britain used cluster bombs, which are internationally forbidden by the Treaty of Ottawa because of the big risk for the civilians on landmines and scattered missiles . According to International Law the use of weapons with an enlarged risk for civilians is a war-crime.

    Several times Iraqi civilians were shot by American troops at checkpoints. The justification by military spokesmen, referring at a suicide attack by an Iraqi soldier in civilian clothes makes no sense, because shooting civilians is always a war-crime according to International Law. Of course the American troops have the right to take security measures, but not at the cost of the Iraqi civilians for whose safety they are responsible according to the 4th Geneva Convention being the occupying army...this is colonial massacre..

    i pray for the destruction of American empire..........

    What many fail to realize is that it's not necessarily the American PEOPLE who are doing these things but those in the American GOVERNMENT who weld power.

    They do these things despite the will of the people.

      America has no ambition for an empire. It is not looking to grab foreign lands. One can say American influence, but not empire.

        appreciating the defense of American people...

        we have our own fights eg:

        This is the piece I have been emailing and pasting on editorial pages. I know this kids mom, she works with me. He was the target of bullies at school who wrote a list in his note book and reported it as his. He admits to a wish list...he admits he wishes his mothers ex-boyfriend who beat her severely was dead...but that's not quite the same as threatening to do it...however, what do you do if you are 14, cut off from every one except the court personel....plead... to go home!

        Four Holly High School students report a "kill List" March 16, 2005
        List found in notebook, Police search youths home finding no weapons March 22, 2005
        Oakland County Prosecutor David Gorcyca issued a petition charging 14 year old Mark O'Berry of White Lake Township with one count of "Threatening Terrorism under the Anti-Terrorism Act. (Felony 20 years)
        OBberry was taken into custody and a hearing set for 3/23/2005
        Juvenile referee Michael Hand turned down request on bond 3/30/05
        He is to be held in Oakland County Childrens Village at the expense of his mother, a pretrial hearing is set for April 12.
        April 12, adjourned by mutual agreement of Prosecutor and court appointed Defense, due to scheduling conflicts, mother was not informed. New date set for April 21.
        Psych exam ordered and expected within the next 30 days. April 21, 2005
        Defense claims the prosecutors office has the burden of proof and should do the handwriting analysis as O'Berry denies writing the list.
        Mark continues schooling while in Juvenile Detention making the honor roll.

        June 7, 2005 Front page Oakland Press; "Holly High School Freshman...pleaded quilty Monday" "Defense Attorney Ryan Deel praised the Oakland County Prosecutors office for "seeing this case for what it was, essentially doing the right thing" "This is exactly perfect for the out come" said Deel, "Luckily this isn't going to give him a record" (?????)

        Are we to believe that this attorney had given the best defense for this 14 year old accused of terrorism and exploited, plastered to the front page of papers in shackles with obvious deliberation to make an example and send a message to youth.

        "When it came time to plead, in a soft voice, Mark said ," I wrote a maybe list". When pressed about what that meant, he choked up as he said; I said maybe meant ...kill, I said it to one of my friends.' He did not directly address the "hit list"in his pleading."

        I am left wonder if a 14 year old understood "plead bargain", or if he was given the option of a nolo contendre plea, or for all that matters, what was the result of the handwriting analysis?

        And what is the message? That an anonymous "hit list" in someones notebook can be reported by the school, to have someone arrested or apprehended, have the case riddled in the papers by the Prosecutions accusations trying to justify apprehension and detention without probable cause? To have your constitutional rights violated by an anti-terrorist act meant to protect the public? What was the probable cause that leads the reasonable to believe that this young man committed a crime that endangered the public? Defense Attorney Deed admits "this case was not an appropriate use of the law".

        I assure the Prosecution that they did not represent all " the people" in this case, and that I would gladly lead a campaign against re-election out of fear of what can happen to our children while we like Ms.O'Berry helplessly watch, and are limited to short bi -weekly scheduled visits, are detached from parental rights, then to be socked with the expense bill of the juvenile facility.

        Are we really so ignorant to believe that this is not a part of the boys record? It is his history now!! The boy should not bear the shame of a terrorist label through his life. The boy's constitutional rights were violated because of a list written by an unknown author, by courts who no longer have enough sense to discern a terrorist threat, from a school boy hoax, and by the agenda of someones political future being built at the cost of a boys future. Should this have gone any further than a school counselor, instead it goes to a legal counselor???

        Lately I have been asked alot, "what would you be willing to give up for protection? "
        This is my answer...I have already given up my privacy, but I would not give up the liberties and rights to be added to the damages and be held hostage by the act of organized terrorists. The fore fathers who wrote the Constitution wrote it to protect its citizens from governmental powers becoming too great. The preamble list six important reasons for drafting our Constitution, I strongly advise a review of that document especialy the part that says "We the order to the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity". My question; What are we allowing to happen to our country?

        Mark is still being held in detention awaiting sentencing set for July 5th.
        On July 4th we celebrate independence day, again I thank the writer here who distinquished the difference of the people from those of the government.

          I know I am a bit late on this thread. the interest of whoever may be reading....

          Kareem, you are absolutely right! Our government makes us "afraid" that bad things might happen. They have slowly taken away our civil rights with the Patriot Act. Just yesterday, a court ruled that our Patriot Act was unconstitutional on two counts!

          What I don't understand is why the American people have allowed this to happen....even when we know the current administration is not telling the truth. I look around, and feel that America's good reputation has been sullied around the globe with our government's "Bully" attitude.

          There is talk about Iran and how they are wrong for building a nuclear weapon. They have broken no regulations or laws. However, it is my government which has broken countless U.N. resolutions over the years.

 not look unfavorably against the American people. It is the right-wing fanatical Christians that are ruling our country and poisoning our minds against the world.

          Peace to all.

            tyjemison, i agree.

            I live in one of the most liberal states in our country, California, and still there are people who are for the war in iraq and support the decisions of our president.

            The majority of persons who vote in this country are conservative, capitalist, and uneducated. But, for the rest of the world I can only say that there are people in this country who care. I know that if it was in my power, I would re-write the constitution myself, and totally reassign government positions to people who accuratley represent a secular, liberal, socialistic view that many people (even though we are still, unfortunately, a minority) agree with in this large, diverse country.

            I sincerely apologize fro the impact our pompous governmant has had on each of your lives, and I hope that the next generation of voters and our next president will work tirelessly to right the wrongs our minortiy recognizes, despite the glaring diapproval and overbearing influence of the real "red scare," the conservative party.

              While I do think American government is very war happy and I hate that, what I do love about them is there refusal to let other countries have nukes. I'm aware of the arms control treaty thingy and also I'm well aware that they are the only country ever to use them but when I ask my self who would I rather have them, the answer is no one but as that isn't an option I would rather America has them rather than places like Iran etc I'm also aware that Iraq never had any and it was all a cunning ruse that no one bought. if America stops more people from having them I say more power to them. I would list all the things wrong with America but im sure people already have. But you have to remember they also do a lot of things right in my opinion anyway. Hopefully the obama government will cut down on the war stuff and leave the good America does.

              Just ask yourself would you rather America have the nuclear weapons apposed to Iran etc? Were they right to kick the Taliban out of power? Were they right to kick Saddam Hussian out of power?

              the answers have to be yes If you are Sane imo. I don't agree with the methods, This is where I hope the Obama government will do better.
