The War Criminals Who Bombed Libya

The War Criminals Who Bombed Libya
By Stephen J. Gray

“First, the [Libyan] war is illegal under the United States constitution and our War Powers Act, because only the US Congress has the authority to declare war and the president has been unable to show that the US faced an imminent threat from Libya.”

(Dennis Kucinich, American Congressman, writing in the Guardian U.K Newspaper July 6, 2011.) [1]

Libya has been bombed non-stop for around eight months all in the name of a “humanitarian mission.” The main perpetrators of this atrocity are the so-called “civilized political leaders” of the western world. Their partners in war crimes are NATO and the Al-Qaeda [2] led rebels. The propaganda merchants for the war were mostly the mainstream media who gave credibility to its illegality and mostly covered up the Al-Qaeda led connection to the rebels. The victims of this war are the Libyan people, men women, and children. Their homes destroyed and reduced to “smithereens.” [3] Thousands killed or maimed all in the name of a “humanitarian mission,” and a “responsibility to protect.” Orwellian doublespeak is the vocabulary of this political filth that rule over us: Killing civilians and children [4] in order to save them! Destroying a country in order to protect it! And “proud”[5] of their obscene and dirty work in the process. No words are strong enough to describe the sick hypocrisy and insane rhetoric coming out of the mouths of these so called political “leaders” who call themselves “The Friends of Libya.”

“Friends”of whom? Certainly not of the little child screaming in agony with half its face blown away. [6] [8] This child cries out for justice as do its parents, but, will they get it from the so-called International Criminal Court (ICC)? I would not bet on it. The political war criminals are free right now and congratulating themselves on a “job” well done. To see them issuing statements (and most of the grovelling mainstream media consorting with them) and praising this massive bombing obscenity as a “humanitarian mission” is to see institutionalized evil in action. Our evil political emperors have no clothes, they are obscenely naked and a revolting picture to the eyes of any decent person who believes in the sanctity of human life. They are political fiends who are a danger to all that is good and decent, yet, they boast of a great “mission success” after their bloody atrocities and months of bombings. Innocent children are slaughtered and it is mostly covered up by the sycophantic media who parrot the war criminals propaganda and write editorials and columns that Josef Goebbels would be proud of.

“The effective propagandist must be a master of the art of speech, of writing, of journalism, of the poster and of the leaflet. He must have the gift to use the major methods of influencing public opinion such as the press, film and radio to serve his ideas and goals, above all in an age of advancing technology.” [7] (Josef Goebbles)

Technology in this illegal and obscene war has dulled the senses and corrupted the language. We saw on a TV news story how “surgical strikes” were carried out by the “brave” assassins in the sky. No mention, or very little, of the human consequences and victims below. But hey, if we killed some innocents below it was “collateral damage” and we can always apologise. This illegal war not only had civilian casualties, other casualties were truth and justice. Meanwhile, the war criminals are free and in positions of power. We would do well to remember the words of Lord Acton: “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Make no mistake, we are seeing the absolute corruption of politics and the brain washing of society to justify the atrocities committed in this illegal criminal war.

Thoughts on a Great Victory

Thoughts on a Great Victory
A speech by the Right Hon. Mr. Slick Sicko

Satire by Stephen J. Gray

We are gathered here today to hear my presentation on our great victory over the dictator who used to be our friend and who was called a “staunch ally” by a NATO member country. Our former dictator friend is now dead, murdered by a bullet to the head after being terribly abused by our brave rebel fighters, who are led by an Al- Qaeda associate. Yes, I know Al-Qaeda is supposed to be our enemy but on this occasion they are our friends. Al-Qaeda on the ground and NATO in the air performed heroics to bring this war to a successful conclusion. Thousands upon thousands of bombing sorties were carried out, oops, I mean surgical strikes. Missiles were released on unsuspecting targets and some civilians and children were killed by the brave operators in the sky. Still, the price of a humanitarian mission is to save lives and if we did some killing oops, I mean collateral damage; then that is the price that has to be paid in a safe bombing attack. Cities were reduced to rubble, peoples’ homes were destroyed, electricity and water supplies were damaged and hospitals were overflowing with dead and wounded. We created hell on earth. But, that is the price that had to be paid for this humanitarian mission to be successful. I know some silly and ignorant people have been saying, it would have been cheaper and saved lives if we had sent in an assassination squad like we did with old Osama Bin Laden. But hey, that was not in the cards. Why do things on the cheap? We have an expensive taxpayer funded military arm called NATO whose business is war.

This was a war; and wars cost money and they also make money for some of us. This one lasted around eight months. Billions of dollars were spent by the “Friends of Libya” on bombs, missiles, guns etc. Now all that weaponry will have to be replaced. This will keep the arms manufacturers busy and keep people working. The ruined homes and infrastructure of the country will have to be rebuilt and our people will help rebuild it after destroying it. Is that a make work project or what? And the good old taxpayers of the free world will pay through the nose as always. ( cheers ensue from the respected audience of the international community)

Let me just paraphrase an old saying: “Out of evil work comes good work” ( much laughter and burst of applause ensues from the eminent persons in attendance)
But, I digress.
Working and warring for democracy is never easy but we keep doing our best to see that the world gets it. I know some cynical people will say that we supplied our old murdered dictator and former friend with guns, tanks and tear gas etc to suppress his own people, so how can we say we are believers in democracy? Quite simply, selling him arms and fawning over him was a business decision at the time, all of us elites did it. People say there are no ethics in our kind of business, still, somebody has to do it.

At the moment, we have a financial fraud and moral bankruptcy in the financial system and it just so happens our old deceased friend had “144 tons of gold” and billions of dollars in our respectable banking system not to mention plenty of oil. So when the chance came to bring our democracy to his country we decided to help with a humanitarian mission. In fact, we are hoping we might get a Nobel Peace Prize for our efforts. Still, you cannot please everybody, some people are saying we are war criminals and we should be put on trial. But hey, that will never happen; who would run the world? (A number of hear, hears are heard and a standing ovation ensues)

In closing let me say this, I would like to thank the corporate media who did a great job suppressing the Al-Qaeda and Islamist connection to the brave rebels. NATO for its big bang up job, no pun intended, of bombing the country back to the stone age. And let us not forget “The Friends of Libya,” without your authorization this massive bombing campaign, oops, I mean surgical strikes, would never have happened.
God Bless you all as you continue to bring democracy to the world and support international law.

Letter to National Post

Copy of Letter sent to National Post.

Letter to the Editor
National Post
October 21. 2011.

Dear Editor, re: "Canada's proud role in Libya" National Post, October 21, 2011.
You state in this editorial: " the true heroes... are the Libyan rebels themselves." Don't you people know that: "A significant proportion of the revolutionary army is composed of Islamist fighters, some of whom were previously in the al-Qaida-linked Libyan Fighting Group..." ( Guardian U.K. Oct. 20, 2011) [1]
So here we have Al- Qaeda and NATO destroying and bombing a country back to the stone age, and killing civilians and children [2] and you call this a "proud role" for Canada! Give your heads a shake and do some research before you start sounding off in an editorial. Whatever happened to so-called "investigative journalism?"

Has Corruption Become Legitimate?

Has Corruption Become Legitimate?
By Stephen J. Gray

People around the world are protesting in the streets, and many of the elites and corporate media are asking: “What is their problems?”
Any thinking person can see what the problems are.
We have massive financial fraud perpetrated on the money system and the fraudsters were bailed out with tax-payers dollars. Meanwhile, we have a cabal of political leaders who call themselves the G20 or Gang of 20 meeting in opulent surroundings debating how to fix the financial system. The solution is staring them in the face. Jail the financial fraudsters! Shut down all these offshore tax havens and publish the names of all the elites, banks and corporations who keep their money offshore. But, of course that will not happen. The powerful elites are too powerful and the politicians are their dumb lackeys.

“Truth is treason in an empire of lies.” - Ron Paul.

Meanwhile the war campaigns are never ending. Young men and women are sent to foreign countries to fight wars based on lies. The Iraq war was supposed to be about Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) but this turned out to be untrue. Young men and women were killed or terribly maimed and disfigured and it was all based on political lies. The people of Iraq also suffered casualties, men and women, children and babies were also killed, maimed and disfigured all because of political liars. Some of them now write books and travel the world on speaking tours after reducing a country to a hell on earth. A decent and moral society would put these “leaders” on trial for war crimes, but hey, these are the “good guys.”

The “good guys” also supply weapons, missiles, tear gas etc. to dictators around the world. They also have been known to supply both sides in a war. Think Libya where the “political pillars of society” supplied the Gaddafi regime with all kinds of weapons and are now helping the Al- Qaeda rebels to destroy the country courtesy of NATO and its bandits of bombing. Libya is another country reduced to rubble and the war criminals are the “good guys.”
Then the “good guys” get contracts for re-building the same countries they help destroy. This is called “humanitarian help” and “bringing democracy” and “responsibility to protect.” Or to quote from George Orwell’s book: 1984. “War is Peace”

Now the “good guys” are gearing up for another war. Iran is the latest enemy to be considered for a “humanitarian mission.” The NATO war horse is surely champing at the bit, and the political “leaders” and the “respected” think tanks dressed in their combat gear of expensive suits are shooting off their mouths calling for combat. As always they will lead from the rear, safely ensconced in their luxury bunkers while others do their killings and bombings. While back at the ranch and the luxury office towers, the arms dealers and bankers count their perverted profits with bloodstained hands.

Meanwhile, families lose mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters in these endless wars in defence of corporate freedom, to pillage, plunder and loot the world.
Somebody once said: “Patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels.” Based on what we see happening today it would appear the scoundrels are in charge, and young men and women in uniform are dying because of these lying political “patriots” who sell out their national sovereignty to the unelected manipulators and supporters of the New World Order. No wonder people around the world are protesting and asking the question: Does Corruption Rule?

The Political “Warriors”

The Political “Warriors”
By Stephen J. Gray

Standing on their platforms on the World Stage
Stood the political warriors of the present age
Dressed in their combat gear of expensive suits
These are today’s warring kooks

They are the warriors who never fight in battle
The rear end heroes who endlessly prattle
Their mouths are their weapons to lay waste a land
While others do their dirty work when they issue a command

Political hypocrites who don’t fight in the blood soaked action
Posturing and pontificating is their satisfaction
“Warrior leaders” creating hell on earth
Cackling and laughing in their insane mirth

Political clowns and dangerous with power
Authorizing bombings by the endless hours
Children are dying and a country laid waste
The “warriors” call this “humanitarian” it’s to their sick taste

They feed off death and call it victory
Their propaganda sycophants will write their history
Political warriors who lead from the rear
While authorizing missiles to instill fear

Do political terrorists control and rule?
Is the world stage a platform for dangerous fools?
People are paying a terrible bloodstained price
But hey, they are being “saved” by political lice

Where will it all end, one might ask?
Political war criminals are up for the task
Creating death and destruction is their forte
Thousands and thousands of “successful” bombing sorties

The slaughtered children cry out for justice
Bombed into oblivion by those who say: “trust us”
Their homes reduced to smouldering rubble
By those who were “saving” them, but caused them trouble

Who will be the next target for this “humanitarian mission?”
By these political killers and the brotherhood of perdition
Like sharks in the water, they have tasted blood
And these “warriors” feed on adulation, even though it’s crud

Are they political filth, as bad as the dictators: they say they abhor?
Birds of a feather! Are they are all warmongering whores?
It would be nice if they had to lead by example
Put them in the front lines of war. Let them have a sample

Let them feel the horror and misery of the bombings they started
Let’s see if they are “heroes” amongst the unwanted
But hey, political cowards don’t fight in war
They just encourage it, more and more

Can we afford these “honorable” ones?
Who are spending billions of dollars on missiles and guns
Are they sick in the head? Are they diseased war carriers?
God save us all from these Political “Warriors?”

Did the National Post Capitulate on Free Speech?

Did the National Post Capitulate on Free Speech?
By Stephen J. Gray

“We obviously don’t want to offend anyone, but we also understand that everyone has a freedom of speech,” [1] Enzo Loschiavo “National Post’s manager of advertising sales,…” Quoted in Xtra, Sept. 29, 2011. Canada’s, Gay and Lesbian News.

The National Post says it believes in free speech and free expression, yet it recently withdrew an ad after some people were, “offended” and who did not like the ad. In fact, it issued a grovelling apology in defence of its suppression of free expression. The newspaper stated: “The ad in question was attempting to make the case that the Ontario curriculum was teaching very young children about issues that, at that age, should be the domain of parents.” Parents “domain” should certainly include the right to object, and expose what they consider indoctrination of the minds of their children, especially when “human sexuality” is being taught to them. The paper went on to state: “Where the ads exceeded the bounds of civil discourse was in their tone and manipulative use of a picture of a young girl; in the suggestion that such teaching “corrupts” children, with everything that such a charge implies; and in their singling out of groups of people with whose sexuality the group disagrees.” Oh really, when did it become “manipulative” to show a picture of a young person in an ad. Or wrong to “disagree” with anyone on anything?

Newspaper ads show pictures of children and adults all the time, in an attempt to sell the product, are these not “manipulative?” And the National Post “disagrees” nearly every day in editorials as do some of its columnists writing on various issues, such is the role of a free press. But, it seems with its censorship of the ad in question the paper’s stand is as the old say goes, “free speech for me, but not for thee.” The paper also said: “The National Post believes strongly in the principles of free speech and open, unhindered debate. We believe unpopular points of view should not be censored simply because some readers may find them disturbing, or even offensive.” The newspaper’s apology for suppressing free speech and free expression is surely bizarre? They say they believe in “unpopular points of view” and they also say: “This ad will not run in the National Post again.” Are they confused or what? Do they need some kind of help to straighten out their thought processes? Or were they under pressure from special interest groups to suppress the ad?

Xtra, Canada’s Gay and Lesbian news of September 29, 2011, stated: “A coalition of queer community groups has also drafted an open letter response to the ad. The signatories, including Egale, the Lesbian Gay Bi Trans Youth Line, the 519 Community Centre, Sherbourne Health Centre, Rainbow Health Ontario, Queer Ontario, Fife House, Ontario AIDS Network, Black CAP and the Toronto People with AIDS Foundation, call on the leaders of Ontario's political parties to denounce the ad and clarify "where each party stands on the position advanced" in it.”

Questions need to be asked regarding the behaviour of the National Post regarding this ad. First they publish it. Then they make a craven apology and say:
“The fact that we will not be publishing this ad again represents a recognition on our part that publishing it in the first place was a mistake. …The Post will also be donating the proceeds from the advertisement to an organization that promotes the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people.” [2] (emphasis added)

People should be asking themselves; is the National Post practising censorship and trashing the principles of free speech and free expression by capitulating to the strident voices of political correctness?
