BWD and Link Dump

My fellows Americans, here are your tax dollars at work.

The criminal murders of hundreds of innocent children in Gaza are war crimes. Where are the American right to lifers? Aren't these babies, too? You, the American taxpayer, enabled these crimes. There must be justice for these children and their families. Israel is a nation of war criminals. They are the new Nazis. Israel was founded on acts of terrorism and war crimes. The Zionists are some of the worst people in the world. While the Jewish people deserve a homeland safe from the possibility of any Holocaust, they don’t have the right to do this. They have become the people who tried to wipe their people from the earth. They must be stopped. There is no other way.

For ex-President George W. Bush and ex-Vice President Dick Cheney and most who served in Bush’s criminal administration, there must be justice. They committed war crimes and must be brought to justice. They are responsible for the deaths of thousands of young American men and women and countless Iraqi and Afghan men, women and children based on lies. They must be put in prison as the common criminals they are. Dick Cheney and his companies profited from the wars he started and that money should be repaid to the US government. There is no other way.

W. and the Damage Done by Vincent Rossmeier and Gabriel Winant

For the hundreds of Wall Street executives who took money from the US taxpayers, hard-earned money that the US government doesn’t even have, and used it to redecorate their offices and go on expensive retreats and pay outrageous bonuses to people who basically drove their companies and with them the American and thus the global economy into the ditch. They must be brought to justice. There is no other way.

What should be a joyous celebratory time as a new president, the first Afro-American president, has taken over from the disastrous catastrophe of the last eight years; it is instead a time filled with grave danger and important litmus tests. It’s not President Obama’s fault. It’s the fault of every goddamned one of you stupid Americans who pulled the lever or marked the box that put George W. Bush in power, twice. Shame on you and shame on the disaster you’ve brought to your country. There is blood on your hands and there is a bleak economic future awaiting your children. It’s your fault.

2009 and The New Nazis

I was so hoping that 2009 was going to be a much better year than 2008. In December 2008 I flew to Langkawi, Malaysia and had one of the best vacations of my life. It’s a beautiful island. I did one night in Singapore on the return flight to Abu Dhabi and have it on my list to visit again. The pictures are posted online just use the link on the side that says Jack’s Pictures. Then on Boxing Day I bought a pup, Joe the Cocker Spaniel. He’s really a great dog, very well-behaved and sweet and friendly. A few pictures of him are posted there, too. He’s adjusting to life in a flat and the city pretty well. But, I have to write about something else and it’s a subject I’ve been to again and again and nobody listens.

The Israelis are the new Nazis. What a sad, shameful commentary on what should be a proud, noble country. Here’s what the Israelis want you to remember and never forget and they’re right about that. The world should never forget!!

This is from the Jewish Holocaust.

And this is from the Jewish Holocaust.

Now, here is what the Israeli Nazis want you to forget.

This is a war crime. This is a Lebanese child murdered by the Israeli military using weapons from the United States in their war against Hezbollah a few years ago.

This is another war crime. This is a Palestinian child in Gaza murdered by the Israeli military using weapons from the United States only this week.

This cannot continue. I watch CNN International and I am embarrassed as it spews the talking points of the new Nazis. The rockets that Hamas fire into Gaza are their major talking point. What a load of crap. How can anyone with half a brain believe anything they say? The Israelis never kill anyone but “suspected militants”. The “suspected militants” are freedom fighters trying to establish a country of their own. The Israeli Nazis are as criminal as the Bush regime and should be brought before the World Court on charges of war crimes. Both the Bush administration and the current Israeli government need to face justice.

Bush pushed the Palestinians to have elections even though everyone told him the outcome—Hamas would be elected. Then once the people voted in free and fair elections, the Bush junta along with Israel has tried to destroy them. Doesn’t the world even know or care that Hamas was started with help from the Mossad as a counter to Yassir Arafat? Just like the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan was started by the CIA to fight the Russians. What goes around comes around, huh?

The Israeli Nazis have held Gaza under siege for over a year with the land, air and sea crossings blockaded. The people there are dying of hunger and a lack of medical and basic supplies. I heard President-Elect Obama say that if someone were lobbing missiles at his house with his daughters in it he would do everything to stop them. What if they were laying siege to Chicago and food and medicine and basic supplies could not reach your family? What would you do then Mr. President-elect? Please give us change we can believe in and not the same old tired crap we’ve heard over and over again for countless years.

It’s time for the United States to be a real friend to Israel and help them save themselves. While the Israeli lobby holds many world politicians in the palm of their hand, the people of the world are sick of the senseless slaughter and war crimes of the new Israeli Nazis. Scream it, shout it, tell your elected officials that this must end.
