Vengeance seekers of victimized countries without weapons to defend themselves from collateral murder of their families, blow up their bodies among the families of their persecutors and point out that the citizens of all countries are ultimately responsible for the crimes of their government’s military because they are fully capable of making atrocity wars inoperable by not participating and by prosecuting their war criminals.
Fortunately for America, Thousands of 9/11s Americans Put On Defenseless People Overseas Remain Unavenged
Every month for fifteen years, America put a 9/11 equivalent loss of life on the little French colony of Vietnam, after paying the French to do the same for eight years before. (Americans dropped more than twice the tonnage of explosives dropped in all of WW II on tiny Vietnam.)
Vietnamese planes did not bomb three million Americans to death in retaliation. The soft spoken Vietnamese are Buddhists. I once heard one say offhandedly, “Big countries attack small countries,” as if it were just the way things are, a fact of life. How can one think of revenge on things the way they are – destiny itself?
Whoever was killed by the bombs Sen. McCain, as a young pilot, released over Hanoi during his twenty-three bombing missions, never had anyone avenge their deaths on McCain. McCain, on the contrary, was saved from drowning in his own parachute by a citizen of the Hanoi he was bombing. The man then protected McCain from residents who wanted to beat him.
John Kerry, who, before a Congressional committee, called the war an atrocity, is now a millionaire. I wonder if the family of the Vietnamese patriot he shot to death to save his buddies ever received any indemnification.
Eighteen young country girls and one baby shot a point blank range, and one old man who Seal Commander Bob Kerrey had to hold down so his buddy could cut his throat. Their murders were never avenged. Their faces never shown on network news, which did show the faces of American soldiers killed in action, as it still does now.
After the lighting success of the North Korea army, in five weeks uniting the peninsula in, for the first time since the US had divided it and set up a murderous regime in the South, Americans bombed to the ground every Korea city and town of any size, with the exception of US garrisoned Pusan. Divide three thousand (Americans dead at 9/11) into two million (Koreans dead) to estimate how many 9/11s were put on the Korean people. Obviously a flattened Korea could not have gotten back at the superpower even if it would have wanted to, though a hell of a lot of Koreans wanted to, and I’m sure a lot of Koreans still would have liked to have bombed the US back. (To get back at Americans as well for recognizing Korea as territory of Imperial Japan during Korea’s brutal forty year Japanese occupation?)
Panamanians and Dominicans killed by US forces invading and bombing were never avenged. Nor were the hundreds of Cubans killed in the CIA sponsored invasion of their country. Tens of thousands of young people, some teenagers, some pregnant, were made to ‘disappear’ (hundreds turning up as brutally tortured corpses) by military governments in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Bolivia, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Haiti and elsewhere in Latin America, that came to power through CIA action, State Department and Presidential decisions. No sanctions were ever put on the US, once civilian governments were restored. To date there has been no revenge attack from Latin American armed forces, though the same violent foreign policy has continued with the recent kidnapping removal of the priest president of Haiti, financial backing of a coup d’état against popular elected President Chavez of Venezuela in which lives were lost, and using the excuse of drug wars to intervene militarily in various nations.
Iran, Guatemala, and Congo all had their democratically elected governments overthrown by the CIA on Eisenhower’s orders, with loss of many lives during the coups, but followed by an even deadlier history of bloodshed that has not abated to this day. There no sign of agents from those countries sneaking into the US to overthrow the American two-party democratic dictatorship, though Eisenhower, on his last day in office, did warn America that the Military-Industrial Complex possibly could.
But an unexpected reaction to coldblooded foreign policy did come about. Arabs, including Osama bin Ladin, brought into Afghanistan to fight the US Cold War, wound up turning on the US(Why?). Some of them willing to blow them selves up, sacrifice their lives, just to attack US embassies, a ship in port etc.(why?). Then came the first attack on the World Trade Towers resulting in a number of fatalities. According to Osama’s explanitory statement, it was to avenge the death of a half million Iraqi babies, avenge the violent death of tens of thousands of Palestinians, who had their land taken away by the colonial-powers-dominated UN treacherous and absurd Partition (calculated to bring unending war), and to avenge the stationing of US Armed Forces in desecration of the Islamic Holy Land of Saudi Arabia.  When Osama spoke of this as a warning that the West must stop its persecution of Muslin nations, some well educated US diplomats must have wondered, as this author did, if this crusade Osama led was also in revenge for decades of the murderous rule, exploitation and denigration of Muslims in all the lands seized from the Turkish Empire by US allies Britain, France and Italy. US conglomerate media made sure that very little of the above mentioned is known by the troops striking designated US enemies in designated places when and where ordered.
When the horrific tragedy of sudden massive destruction and death finally hit American soil on 9/11, many in the anti-imperialist war movement thought, now Americans will appreciate how Vietnamese and Koreans felt, how it feels to be attacked. Young Obama’s minister Jeremiah Wright quoted the folk adage, “The chickens have come home to roost,” expressing a sense of retribution so many Americans must have been feeling. Commentators on Big Brother TV cartel networks three years later were rebroadcasting it as outrageous treason. The ‘correct,’ proper and broadcasted reaction to 9/11 was to forget known US crimes against humanity and understand that an evil had attacked what is pure – that evil people were trying to take over the world, as opposed to America, which was said to be always helping world, not trying to take it over (For it already has, one might add). But there was a widespread “Why?” was asked all over an America in shock at the time. While media avoided Osama bin Laden early explanation and call for the West to desist attacking and subverting governments of Muslim nations, it highlighted President Bush’s infantile remarks on 9/11,”They are jealous of our wealth, hate our freedom – there is evil in the world.”
All this gung-ho revenge thrill of American soldiers tattooing ‘9/11’ on their arms and chests? It has nothing to do with reality. The ‘Avenge 9/11!’ outpour of justified rage is just as corporate media created as all its previous war promotions. 9/11 was indeed indescribably horrendous to behold and remember. Through compassionate news coverage, Americans have quite correctly been made especially aware of this horror spectacle in great detail. But US Media could have covered the thousand times greater horror of US bombing continually in Vietnam, in Korea and other places, but it did not. It could have programed human interest interviews with families of Vietnamese, Korean, Dominican, Lebanese, Panamanian, Grenadian, Cuban survivors. But, instead of compassionate and human interest coverage as was given 9/11, Pentagon-fed media always sought and still seek to minimize the meaning of massive civilian death and maiming produced by Americans, excusing it as being necessary to protect America. TV network news programs excuse it day after day, year after year, as unintentional, constantly reminding that Americans do not target civilians – unless they happen to be in a target zone.
It’s now eleven years since 9/11, but Americans are still proudly slaughtering in Afghanistan in calculated unawareness or without concern that the Muslims who highjacked airliners and flew them suicidally into the Trade Towers were from US ally Saudi Arabia (“They all look the same to me”). These heroic American young men, out to prove there manhood for family and country, were never made aware that they were sent to capture or kill the very same Arabs that Carter and Reagan’s Presidential Adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski, had invited into Persian speaking Afghanistan from all over the world and armed them to fight the Russians and the Kabul government. Worse, never made aware that the Soviets had entered Afghanistan to protect a neighboring ally’s very popular (at that time) women-liberating socialist government in Kabul from a CIA funded, armed and trained guerrilla army backed also by the CIA allied governments of Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. (The Soviet army came in a full half-year after CIA began arming, training and funding the fundamentalist hill tribe warlords attacks.) Worse yet, still today, not been made aware that Brzezinski had purposely wanted to frighten the Russians to react, and bragged about it twenty years later to the French, proudly confessing having turned [poor] Afghanistan into a bloody pawn to win the Cold War.
Today Americans are suckered to take credit for girls being in school. Thirty-three years ago America was secretly funding ignorant terrorists who were executing government schoolteachers for teaching girls. In 1979, CIA was funding and arming warlord Gulbudin Hekmatyar, known for throwing acids into the faces of women not wearing the all covering veil. In 2012, with few al Qaeda left to claim to be chasing, US media tells the US and allied European troops that they are in Afghanistan fighting for women’s rights. 9/11 vengeance engulfs an ever widening net of designated enemies and suspected enemies as targets in a dozen Muslim countries and the is little time or patience for sorting out the distinction between hostile anti-imperialist radical Muslims and the merely devout praying for freedom from Western dominance and commercial culture.
“Marines on Taliban Killing Hunt! reads the caption title below the CNN video showing Darth Vader-like heavy caliber weapons in the hands of heroic U.S. Marines in armored cars entering a poor little Afghan town. Anchor Wolf Blitzer, in a voice filled with determination, describes how Marines have invaded a village long under Taliban ‘control’, (truth is, it is more correct to say ‘under Taliban government provincial administration’ as is most of the countryside). An audacious caption on the screen below the video reads, “Marines on Taliban Killing Hunt!” A US lieutenant interviewed by another network at his outpost confidently reports killing thirty yesterday and twenty the day before, “They keep coming.” Afghan children perish as well as previous OEN articles have pointed out: $2,000 for a dead Afghan Child, $100,000 for Any American Who Died Killing it. Eight years of children starving and freezing to death in Kabul. Shooting Handcuffed Children Aged 12 to 18. All this inhuman carelessness in spite of the apprehension of vengeance some commanding generals must be fearing since 9/11, generals, who, during military adventures in Asia and Latin America, might have thought it comical to feel concern that people in poor nations could ever attack the US homeland in return.
US and European soldiers and airmen don’t know who Taliban are. They are bad guys, and that’s enough. That’s what Wolf Blitzer seeks to prove, and the impression Judy Woodruff and Charlie Rose seek to leave audiences with. And Wolf Blitzer, Judy Woodruff and Charlie Rose are probably not worried about vengeance or a even a Nuremberg Principles trial, though it did happen to a few Nazi media personalities. There a is many decades long list of media criminals against peace, probably more guilty than the Pentagon and CIA who they appear as spokespersons for. US media corporations suffer no vengeance from a deceived world, from families of the millions murdered in their their own country’s cities, towns and countryside, often as not, in their homes.
The CIA began its attack on the Afghanistan government six months before the Soviet intervention. In the hit movie Charlie Wilson’s War,
the CIA enters after the Russians do in order to protect Afghans. No one will take revenge upon producers, directors and actors encouraging and justifying mass homicide with an upside down version of history as exciting entertainment. During and after the Korean and Vietnam wars, America had a long list of actors, like John Wayne, Charlton Heston, Clint Eastwood, Chuck Norris, Sylvester Stallone, willing to star in feature Hollywood movies in the time worn plot of portraying brave soldiers helping non-White people in poor countries by killing the demonized fathers of the children they then protect and save from communism. “The Vietnamese war depicted in The Deer Hunter (staring Robert De Niro) shows subhuman Gooks unfairly winning battles by living like rats instead of standing in the open to be blasted by highly explosive bombs from seven miles high–dropped by more US heroes. It is not harmless to condition a malleable generation by endless simplistic, boasting, “immortal good guy”, “disposable bad guy” images of war. It is no less simplistic today to pretend that people are “saved” by destroying them with the irresistible force of weapons of mass destruction.”
Who are these Taliban the US-NATO troops and planes are warring on in their own beloved country subjected to a corrupt US-NATO-UN installed drug dealing government, after the Taliban government had all but eliminated poppy growing? In the age of Internet and CIA files forced open by lawsuits, no one can plead ignorance. A Wikipedia article describes the most often heard story of how the Taliban was born:
‘It took two years after the Soviet troops left, before the Kabul government was overwhelmed and dispatched by the CIA-Pakistan-Saudi armed, trained and funded rebel forces reinforced by Arabs. And then the US lost interest in Afghanistan, leaving it up to Pakistan to aid its war-torn neighbor.’ “What followed was years of all out war between the US supported warlords. Hekmatyar destroyed half of Kabul with rockets. Atrocities were committed by individuals of the different armed tribes while Kabul descended into lawlessness and chaos. As described by Human Rights Watch, there was little security from murder, rape and extortion. … The most often-repeated story [of the birth of Taliban] is how Mullah Omar first mobilized thirty followers. Neighbors told him that the local governor had abducted two teenage girls, shaved their heads, and raped them. With only 16 rifles they freed the girls and hung the governor from the barrel of a tank. In the beginning the Taliban [‘students’ in Pasto language] numbered in the hundreds. Within months however, 15,000 students arrived from the madrassas [strict Islam schools] in Pakistan. … The Taliban entered Kabul on September 27, 1996, and established the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan enforcing Sharia the moral code and religious law of Islam. It gained diplomatic recognition from three states: Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.”
This writer remembers quizzing Afghan taxi drivers in New York, invariably with the photos of their small children pinned above the rear-view mirror, and hearing, “Taliban is the only hope for my country.”
There is no one to stop today’s continuing murder of Taliban along with whoever is nearby, just as for fifteen years no one could stop the murder of Vietcong, similarly demonized by US media. But judging from this weeks attacks on US embassies and consulates across the Arab world, vengeance further than 9/11 might be in the offing.
US GIs brought merciless death to more than a million Iraqis in the “Oops no weapons of mass destruction” million homicides farce, reminiscent of Defense Secretary McNamara’s “We made a mistake going into Vietnam,” and Obama’s “Iraq was a dumb war.” Well, never mind. Obama says, or is told to say, that all troops who went anywhere are heroes.
Of course, the wars were not mistakes, at least not for the investors in wars. The investment community knew exactly what coldblooded foreign policy served the high returns on investments, investments Martin Luther King Jr. condemned as “unjust predatory overseas investments”. And this powerful financial element makes sure the three branches of government and media it owns and controls would create and manage these wars. (see FDR letter to Col. House,1933) The lead investors knew they would not be arrested and tried for crimes against humanity. Their beholden politicians in office singing military orders that were in effect mass death warrants of the already fleeced victims, would not be able to make trouble.
Reviewing unavenged catastrophes brought about for investment community profit:
The Cambodian Khmer Rouge who suffered devastating, bone chilling, sonar penetrating, earsplitting, ground shaking widespread daily carpet bombing with up to possibly a million tons of explosives on their previously peaceful Cambodia, undefended villages and farmland, apparently took vengeance on their own people who were spared the merciless American carpet bombing. Surely the element of vengeance played a role in the deaths of more than a million as city dwellers were ruthlessly herded out in to the countryside in an obviously ill-conceived return to Nature economy.
No vengeance on America for its carpet bombing.
Laos is the most heavily bombed (often carpet bombed) country on earth thanks to America and Eisenhower, who ordered the initial effort begun to to keep the former French government in power at the cost of lives. Today, a Marxist study society also studies the bombing in acceptance.
Jews who lost six million family members in the Holocaust*, never sought, nor were capable of seeking revenge on Rockefeller, Ford, Dupont and the CEOs of almost every large American corporation for investing heavily for years in Hitler and in low wage Nazi Germany, all the time knowing full well of Hitler’s campaign of hatred for Jews and his planned legislation from the beginning. As in Germany, extreme Anti-Semitism in the US was fueled, ingrained and considered legal by a Anglo-Saxon dominated business establishment concerned with rising Jewish investment successes. The right-wing Zionist faction dominant in Israel might imagine having gotten some vengeance elsewhere, but no vengeance was gotten on tens of thousands of Nazi perpetrators, millions of acquiescent Germans or all the wealthy Americans (Many like Ford and DuPont backed Hitler’s rise to power) who invested in and partnered with Nazi Germany, most of whom then sitting on their hands during the Holocaust (and whose names are still highly respected in America with the sons of Joe Kennedy and Prescott Bush becoming US Presidents.) * [The greatest and ghastliest crime in history. In all fifteen million human beings exterminated]
No revenge was had on the US for sending two armies into the newly proclaimed Soviet Union, executing, from time to time, alongside the British, Russian revolutionaries, who has had enough of the US investors supported Czar and his businessmen cronies.
Chinese shot down in and around Beijing during the Boxer Rebellion by American soldiers who, arrived in time to save the ruling European business men and diplomates and looted all the art treasures they could carry, stripping the Imperial City. No retaliation from colonially occupied China, nor afterward from Revolutionary China for US investors broadening its trading privileges in Asia with blood-spilling.
The thousands of Filipinos massacred by US soldiers after the US investors instigated war a on Spain, which the Filipinos had helped America win;
Many Native American nations reacted to the intruding and conquering Europeans at times with ferocious vengeance, but vengeance begot vengeance ad infinitum with the Natives outgunned and eventually outnumbered, massacred or driven into barren areas or confinement.
Mexicans reacted much the same with bitter result. Their kids in school learn that the gringos punished Mexican revenge on Americans violently demanding a large part of Mexico by declaring a war that took a full half of their country. Thereafter no more vengeance. There was a half-hearted apology from President Clinton more than a century later.
American investors made huge fortunes in New England and in the southern states from the barbaric death-dealing slave trade for two centuries. There was some bit of attempted vengeance during a couple brave slave revolts and and a short lived “get whitey” movement during deadly discrimination years. Now there is resentment and some legal action, but little interest in the call for compensation for the slave labor that built a good deal of America. No retribution
America’s 9/11 attack vengeance results compare poorly with Pearl Harbor attack vengeance success.
Japanese were taught to feel they were avenging Asians conquered, exploited and occupied by the white nations of Britain, France, Holland and the US as they warred upon and ejected the Western colonial governments across the pacific. That didn’t work out so well for the Japanese who suffered in the end from US vengeance under the cry of “Let’s Remember Pearl Harbor.” America had the power to more than avenge, destroying two cites with atomic bombs and fire bombing sixty others. There is an example of our corollary – really achievable vengeance is for most militarily powerful.
As most even modestly perceptive persons now realize, Americas second vengeance crusade in the name of 9/11 has been a cover for, enabler of, Middle East oil domination. However in the final analysis the successful use of vengeance for the ruling
corporate investment community has at the same time impoverished mainstream American.
Americans go on dealing death in Muslim nations and soaking their ground with depleted uranium that will produce weirdly deformed babies for decades to come. Any wonder why Homeland Security is afraid of revenge from American Muslims?
At the same time, it is no secret, except officially, that Wall Street’s investment plans has CIA and State Department making good use of al Qaeda gangs in three or four countries even while Pentagon is continuing to destroy with drone strikes the uncontrolled al Qaeda it helped create in other Muslim countries and around the world. (A good business man makes a profit from all activity, much as a butcher stakes out all parts of an animal for consumption or use.) Mentally sick America, led by TV anchors, enjoys its sporting events and silly meaningless presidential election and pretends someone else is destroying Syria and bringing death to its inhabitants.
How long will millions of intelligent Americans put up with this America über alles mentality? This pack of mass homicide justifying lies? How long will those aware respect the mass of ignorant and self-preoccupied fellow citizens foolishly believing the war promoting investment community owned mass media, respect those deceived sons and daughters who happily follow criminal orders to murder in other people’s countries in the name of all Americans.
While a growing audience of followers hear Ron Paul calling Afghanistan just one of al long series of undeclared, illegal and therefore criminal wars, the vast majority of the most influential college educated class, in all walks of life serve the death and devastation bringing ruling investment community knowingly, prostituting themselves as as professors, as clergy, as media personnel, as professionals in every field, stonewalling even this blatantly simple truth. This ignominious literate decadent American upper class is morally more more responsible for America’s crimes against humanity than the hapless who pull the triggers or the cretans who believe that capital (money) accumulated from wars is more important than life itself and reason to jump out the window if lost. European society mirrors the American in every way from collaborating NATO to bailing out its international bankers and subjugating its working class where possible.
What is even more dismal is Ron Paul is unable to tell people that the wars, he denounces as stupid, are to protect the investments of wealthy capitalists his Republican party represents, and the call for vengeance is but a ploy.
Then all in all, seems like little vengeance is ever had by the poor, and often the vengeance fomented righteously by the wealthy merely serves to blow
back more misery in the end. No real purpose is served. No one brought back to life, nothing destroyed made new, nothing lost restored. Prosecution, on the other hand is something worthwhile, for it usually brings indemnity and restitution and prevention of the repetition of crime.
Unfortunately, vengeance seekers of victimized countries without weapons to defend themselves against the weapons of mass destruction collaterally murdering their civilian citizens, are willing to blow up their bodies among the families of their persecutors, and can point out with reasonable logic, that the citizens of all countries are ultimately responsible for the crimes of their government’s military, this because the people are fully capable of making atrocity wars unacceptable and inoperable by non participation, non cooperation, non support and non acquiescence (as the most celebrated African-American minister preached to all listening and not to the government whose crimes against humanity he had just condemned).
Today, in various countries, people are looking for an opportunity to arrest Kissinger, Bush junior, Cheney and Rumsfeld, arrest them the way US backed Chilean dictator Pinochet was arrested. These anti-imperialists are not looking for revenge but prosecution. The want prosecution to deter future crimes against humanity that serve the investment community which their ‘public servants’ and carried out.
Not only ethically, but also to best effect, the prosecution should be made by people of the same society of the accused, prosecuting their own criminals for crimes against humanity. There is now an educational web site for a fledgling campaign founded with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., peoples historian Howard Zinn and Rev. Jeremiah Wright in mind. Albert Einstein, who once said, “I would rather be torn to pieces than participate in a war,” would have undoubtedly endorsed the present Prosecute US Crimes Against Humanity Now Campaign. [http://prosecuteuscrimesagainsthumanitynow.blogspot.com/]
In encyclopedia articles and specialized collections, scholars have, in effect, already prosecuted posthumously all previous war crimes against humanity, even though the investment communities really responsible for those wars escape being exposed as much as are generals, presidents, prime ministers and emperors, probably because the investment community owns most of the publishing houses and universities.
Behind all the crimes against humanity and therefore behind all the resultant backfired attempts at revenge is the grand conspiracy of private investors ganging up on the rest of mankind. They are forced to do so by their job description (‘make’ money). It is mathematically necessary for brokers and their clerks and accountants to enter human beings and their trading value into the ledger along with every other commodity to be traded, discarded, destroyed according to the demands of the market, i. e., changing conditions for profitability or loss of capital.
Eventually in the age of instant world-wide personal communication we will pay no attention to the pretentious, preposterously patriotic pronouncements of the current poster politician President of the United States of America or the similar facade of European prime ministers, ‘elected’ politicians, servant mass media anchors, commentators, reporters, editors, and members of organized clergy, and focus entirely on the key members of the homicidal criminally inclined international community of investment bankers who are our real rulers. If they cannot be prevented from bringing the larger war their ‘community of nations’ (formerly ‘The Free World’ and before that ‘The Colonial Powers’) is currently preparing for with the greatest ever investments in weapons of mass destruction to be used against two of their own partners in trade, China and Russia, we will be forced to just watch. For as long as there is a still a world to destroy, capital can be accumulated with its destruction.
Time to bring Martin Luther King Jr.’ teaching up from the grave it was buried in along with his body after they shut him up. He had become a threat to their “unjust predatory overseas investments the US wars are meant to maintain.”
“Look across the seas and see individual capitalists of the West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa, and South America, only to take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the country. This is a role our nation has taken, ” refusing to give up the privileges and the pleasures that comes from the immense profits of overseas investments. This is not just.”
“The greatest purveyor of violence in the world today is my own government.”
“Silence is betrayal.” [from the web site of King Condemned US Wars International Awareness Campaignhttp://kingcondemneduswars.blogspot.com/]
Bring the Investment Bankers who rule to justice for Crimes Against Peace and War Crimes Against Humanity under Nuremberg Principle Six and in violation of the US Constitution and first and their economic crimes at home second. This is the key to progress on economic honesty in the United States.

Why does the U.S. ask someone else, the UN to do it as charity? Americans caused them to freeze.
Burning an effigy of Obama and the American flag, Afghans have taken to the streets over the execution of children, ranging in age from 12 to 18, who were pulled from their beds by Special Operations forces in the middle of the night, handcuffed, and shot. Karzai demands foreign troops responsible for the killing of 10 civilians be handed over to the custody of the government.
