• Iraq: Worth Dying For

    Hey, anybody remember we had a war in Iraq that turned out kinda poorly? I know everyone is all caught up in Christmas shopping and planning intervention in Syria, but once in awhile it’s also cool to look back. In this case, about a month ago.

    Thumbnail history: U.S. invaded Iraq in March 2003 to free it from the evil dictator. Iraq was to be a democratic ally of the U.S. in the fight against terrorism. Fast forward to November 2012, and Iraq has freed Musa Ali Daqduq, the senior Hezbollah commander who was tasked by Iran’s Qods Force in Iraq to mold Shia terror groups into a Hezbollah-like entity. Daqduq was directly involved in the murder of five American soldiers in 2007. The U.S. government moved Daqduq to Iraqi custody in December 2011.

    Daqduq was freed by Iraqi authorities and transferred to Lebanon where there is no chance whatsoever that he will rejoin Qods or have anything to do with Hezbollah.

    The release is seen as a barometer of U.S. versus Iranian influence in Iraq. In June, the U.S. requested that Iraq extradite Daqduq so he could be tried in an American federal court. In August, an Iraqi court blocked his extradition to the U.S. Iraqi officials had previously assured the U.S. they would prosecute Daqduq. Instead, under pressure from Iran, Daqdug was sprung.

    So, in summation: U.S. invasion fails to achieve our national goals at the cost of some 4900 American lives, ally Iraq releases a known killer under Iranian pressure and the U.S. is left with the grisly option of droning his ass to death because that’s all we really can do anymore, lash out like some giant of a kid frustrated at his own failings.

    It’s a Christmas story!

      Bush and his gang were emasculated by the Twin Towers attack so they lashed out to try and recover their pathetic concept of manhood. They took it personally and were so blinded by personal humiliation that they didn’t care who died in their attempt at puffing themselves back up. The Iraqis were emasculated by our invasion so look for more schemes to “get back”. Is this what Elton John sang about in the “circle of life”?

      The neo-con mean machine was already in motion before the first WTC building hit the ground zero. They were just waiting for an excuse.

      Bauer- your speculation is shared by many. Isn’t it grand being on this small orb where certain pathological minds decide they must call the shots? I use the term pathology to define those who “don’t get it”.

      @ all people

      Until the critical mass of Americans, willing to much more than vote by saying – I did my part in enabling the Dictatorship, forms, this crap will continue. Merry Christmas to all.

      Sarcasm aside:
      I realize it’s just too much for your American citizen to consider anything not with each of their private little spheres of influence and thinking to ever consider the way history will view events however they may proceed.

      No single person is willing to say or discuss ideas such as, Taking down the Federal Government by non-violent means, other than myself that I know of. And, to be sure of this, I’ve spread this message for almost a year and to over a dozen web sites, using various ways of explaining, calm and not so calm, the situation concerning the usurped Constitution.

      It’s been so fantastically quiet as to be Unbelievable. Everyone accepts this usurpation, while at the same time bitching about it. I guess the bitching part is to let off the stress of being too immature to accept their pathetic refusal to fully accept the situation or they simply and truly don’t care or, as I hope, sometimes, they just lack the self-confidence to realize their country needs their help in ways never before thought of.

      Conservative, Liberal, Progressive, Green, Socialist, Communist, etc, etc, etc, it does matter to anyone, so it must be I’m reading these articles and comprehending them incorrectly.

      The above article states 4900 Americans killed in Iraq. Well, 4900 dead must not mean 4900 dead in a pointless ‘war’ in Iraq, it must mean 4900 dead at a tennis match or squash game or maybe the 4900 means the number of squid washed up on a beach somewhere who were dancing in a chorus line wearing pink tights.

      Other articles specify other issues which to me point to an out-of-control Federal Government wasting lives, money, and the future on fools missions.

      The Federal Government is EXPENDABLE, the People are not. The Federal Government needs to be removed, and then replaced with something more suitable to the People. But, I’m the only one who thinks this way, it seems.

      How many more will die, before others join this struggle against an ILLEGAL, IMMORAL, DEGENERATE, and VASTLY SICK Federal Government?

      Eric, I have been critical of the USG since Vietnam. And I share your views. I’m 67 now, and over the years I’ve witnessed everything you have. I absolutely abhorred Bush&Co, and voted in 08 for Obama, believing every word that spewed from this liars mouth. Never again. I did not vote this time, as by now, after 10 years of research on corruption in our government, and how our government REALLY works, I’ve finally come to the conclusion, short of going crazy and committing suicide by becoming a one man insurrectionist, there is really very little I, nor you, nor a thousand, nor 10k, nor 100k people can do. In that light, let me tell you a short long story.
      After paying nearly $60k in child support over 8 yrs to Sacramento County, California, and knowing my kids and ex weren’t getting a dime, I received a letter from the DA stating I was $42k in “arrears” and the County was prepared to take my home. After spending 6 months just finding an attorney who would take on the DA, I finally had my day in court. The final result finally opened my eyes to the truth. In reality, these corrupt bastards simply stole the money, and using the power of a complicit court, threatened me with doubling the arrears and taking my home, if I did not immediately sell my home, and move out of the state. I did then, what I must do now. Face the facts. I did it as there was nothing else I could do to battle the leviathan. That was 10 years ago.
      However, what I did do once I moved to Oregon, was embark on a 10 yr journey of enlightenment, beginning with corruption in the Child support system as my main focus. Thank god for the internet, as without it, we didn’t have a snowballs chance in hell of finding out anything. It didn’t take long. I found so many storys, some so depraved and evil, it was actually hard to fathom the depths of corruption that existed and still do to this day. Like this one.
      Read this and I guaruntee you will never be the same. From the story.
      quote: “Richard Fine, a gentleman and attorney with a very distinguished career as a taxpayer advocate, had forced LA County to stop stealing from kids after a client discovered that the County was holding up child support monies it collected before paying them over to the parent who was supposed to receive them, illegally keeping all the interest while callously depriving millions of helpless children in the process.” unquote

      Unfuckingbelievable. Yesssereeebob, the “best courts money can buy”. That is THE name of the game. Corrupt courts. Think Bush. However, on with the story.
      10 yrs prior to my brush with Sac. Co., I had acquired a small pamphlet titled The Federal Reserve Lie..or something to that effect. After reading it I was astounded. However, now I had the power of the net and embarked on a tangent to learn more. And I did. So much, it started changing me. This led to the Income Tax, the IRS, the 16th Amendment and on and on and on. In depth. I still research daily to this day. Especially now, as I found something while researching the Richard Fine case that has finally allowed me to see the light at the end of the rabbit hole.
      During my Income Tax research, I came across the concept of SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY.. Say that word. SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY. It is the key to everything.
      At the time, it was in regards to a Supreme Court case brought against the USG by an organization called WE THE PEOPLE. They fought the IRS and USG for years, in regards to the Income Tax and 16th Amendment, which if you have a lifetime to research..will blow your mind. It was this case that brought Sovereign Immunity to my attention, although I had no idea of the depth of it’s implications. I do now. And it ain’t good. In fact, it’s pretty fucking unbelievable.

      Within the Richard Fine story, there was a comment by one Pat Hammer that caught my attention. He linked to a profound insight that you need to see, as it has to do with EVERYTHING you spoke of here. In essence..yes, the Constitution has been usurped. Legally. It’s called the 11th Amendment. I can finally say, with every truth I can summon…we have been duped. From the time we are born, we have been duped, lied to and enslaved to a perverse world of Biblical proportions. And I don’t say that lightly, as lately..I’ve begun to understand the importance of certain passages in the Bible.

      Here is why there is NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING, short of a complete, violent insurrection, that the citizens of the United States can do..NON VIOLENTLY. The REASON is clear now. SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY. Welcome to the Matrix. Here is the Red Pill.

      Start linking to that site. That’s all I can say.

      But let me apologize for the long post. It was the only way I have to make people understand the nature of the beast.

      Good luck.

      PVB,
      I admit that i get easily confused, BUT IF THE pwot IS A WAR then how can you try a person for killing US soldiers in a combat theater of operations?
      If he killed them in cold blooded execution as he probably did (If memory serves)then how can it even be proven that he did the deed?
      Do we have witnesses.
      A short dumb question.IF WE RENDITIONED folks as we clearly did then why didn’t we just pack him up and UPS him to the Homeland of champions? If we kidnapped folks off of street corners then why’d we just sit on this guy?
      There’s always more than meets the eye.ISTM.

      ps
      Peter, I’m sorry for the verbose non DOS related post. However, in some ways, it does relate to DOS, as they are simply an accomplice to the Sovereign Immunity madness. Now, I must use every possible resource to spread this information. Now that I understand the full nature of the beast…DOS means nothing to me. They are simply the public face of it. And now I understand their real mission.

      Eric, I forgot to give you this. You are NOT alone. These people understand the nature of the beast and will not go down without a 10 to 1 response.

      Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill Wednesday, Pelosi drew on her own experience as former house speaker and likened Boehner’s predicament over garnering Republican support for a middle-income tax vote to the decision she faced in 2007. Just a few months into her tenure as speaker, a Democratic Congress was fighting the Bush administration over the passage of continued funding for the war in Iraq without a timetable for withdrawal, prompting a months-long standoff in Washington.
