Lies: George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Barrack Obama and Perpetual War in the Middle East

George HW Bush, Barack Obama, George W Bush

Today there is a raging, growing fire of controversy over Obama’s decision to bomb Syria. Obama’s decision to bomb a free nation is as wrong and distasteful as the inane and unparalleled stupidity of George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush’s lust for war, blood, guts, and fleeting glory in attacking USA-supporters Iraq and Afghanistan.  To many people Obama is but a clone of George W. Bush.1 To others he is a mere continuation of the misrule that has misguided politics since the presidency of Lyndon Baines Johnson who was tricked into a prolonged war against North Vietnam–a war that the USA lost, leaving many soldier imprisoned, and civilians stranded in the embassy of the USA.  This scenario has been repeatedly replayed where USA military entered, spread carnage, and left, including in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other “hot spots.”

Obama has patterned his derelict and dangerous decision on the illegal and immoral war on lies led by a “parade of idiots” masquerading as military intelligence thinkers and experts.2 It was a repeat of the ignorance of Lyndon Baines Johnson in 1964 who led the American people to believe that the Vietnamese had attacked USA ships in the Gulf of Tonkin—an attack that never occurred the way Johnson claimed.3  LBJ’s media lie,4 led to more than 50,000 American deaths.5  Unfortunately, USA citizens always seem to want to believe that the government never lies to them. The NSA (whose operations are in direct opposition to and violates the Constitution of the USA)6, CIA,7 FBI,8 and Congress9 have a historically long line of lies to keep themselves in power at the expense of the citizens not only of the USA but of the world, with special spy forces keeping track of every conversation in Latin America, Europe and around the world,10 The government’s spying on all citizens of the USA and throughout the world increased with the publication of Wiki-leaks.11  bugging German offices as well as those of allies in the UK, France and throughout Scandinavia.12  The new heroes of the world who oppose secrecy and the murder and torture of those who disagree with rogue leaders like Obama, Putin, and others, are Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning, and Julian Assange.13

George H. W. Bush went, willingly, into Kuwait to “drive out” the Iraqis.14  George H. W. Bush was initially reluctant to go into war against Iraq as it had launched a war, at the request of Ronald Reagan to invade Iran, and Saddam Hussein was the favored middle eastern nation of the US government from 1980-1988, arming Saddam and providing technical battle support to Hussein during the Iraq-Iran war. After the war, Saddam wanted to invade Kuwait, suspecting Kuwait was siphoning off gas and selling it below OPEC standards. When US ambassador April Glaspie told Saddam Hussein that the USA had “no opinion on the Arab-Arab conflict, like your border disagreement with Kuwait”, Saddam understood it that the Bush the Elder government would not interfere. During this time Bush began preparing for his war on Iraq, by telling the people of the USA the big lie that Kuwait, “extremely anti-democratic, authoritarian monarchy” that the war was not about oil (which it was) but “liberating” Kuwait from Saddam, and quickly hired PR firms to lie to the American people.15

George W. Bush wanted to go to war against Sadaam Hussein, since the Iraqi leader had “humiliated” his father and gave the USA a resounding military defeat in Kuwait,16 and to equal his father’s image and if possible best it,17 by adopting the lie of the existence of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs), and new about Al-Qaeda plans and the Saudis’ attack on the World Trade Center (WTC) long before it occurred.18 The plans were common knowledge in the USA Intelligence Community since 1995, still nothing was done.19

Rafid Alwan wants to return to Iraq after US and allies killed between 10,500 and 15,000 civilians

These WMDs were the hair- brained decision of an Iraqi defector code named “Curveball”, who was a CIA operative and (mis)informer living in London.  Curveball was paid lavishly by the USA CIA to plant phony intelligence that was later used and argued by Colin Powell in the UN and reiterated by President George W. Bush before the people of the USA.20  Curveball (Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabin born 1968 in Iraq)21  later admitted to creating the myth to involve the USA in an unwinnable war against Iraq (and Islam) to get back with his estranged wife and to topple Saddam whom he saw not as a stabilizing force in the Middle East who had pinned in Iran, but as a dictator who suppressed dissent.22   This same insanity has been the stabilizing force behind the quest for bloodshed and carnage by the garbled partisan rhetoric of US Secretary of State John Kerry who used it in his statement that “blood and hair samples that come to us … it has tested positive for signature of Sarin.” The problem is that there were over 100,000 Syrians killed by Sarin gas before Kerry cried out against Sarin gas and with no argument for armed intervention.

The hypocrisy of Kerry and Obama is staggering, as while decrying the use of chemical weapons in Syria,23  with many nations and experts claiming they are used by insurgents styled “rebels” (Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas), the USA has sent to Iraq, and the USA itself uses bunker-busters, cluster bombs, drones, and the Mark 77 that has traces of napalm but without official recognition of the dangerous chemical. The loudest and biggest threat to world peace is the mouth of Samantha Powers who has never been accused of telling the truth or even a little white lie. Powers exerts far more emphasis on stretching an already threadbare tale into a weave of darkness.  The US ambassador to the UN, who works for the conservative war-hawk group Center for American Progress, Powers calls for open war against Syria even if it leads to World War III.24

There is no proof that Sarin gas was used in Syria—it is all a part of conjecture and unscientific speculation.25  The official Obama government’s assessment is that Syria’s used Sarin against its own people.  It is all a fabrication based on “high confidence” that videos and other media are telling the truth without any evidence to support the conclusions. The stupidity of the Obama Administration has cost it the support and endorsement of many high ranking political and military officials. On August 31, 2013, 13 former officials of the U.S. government, including Pentagon Papers whistleblower Dan Ellsberg, retired CIA analyst Ray McGovern and retired US Army Colonel Larry Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff for Secretary of State Colin Powell, wrote an open letter to General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, asking him to resign rather than follow an illegal order to attack Syria. 26

I would fail any student who would use such slopping research methods and arrive at such bogus conclusions as this is not scientific inquiry that is verifiable: there is no documentary evidence or proof, no identified witnesses with verifiable expertise. The entire Obama Administration document is a mere narrative.27.

What the Obama Administration has done was to create a false list of victims and fantasized the attack. The Obama administration says 1,429 people died in 12 locations mostly east of the capital, an estimate close to the one put out by the Western-backed Syrian National Coalition. When asked for victims’ names, however, the group provided a list of 395. On that list, some of the victims were identified by a first name only or said to be members of a certain family. The Humanitarian group, Doctors without Borders says it has only an estimate of 355 who were killed, and has rejected the use of it “as a justification for military action,” adding in a disclaimer published on its website that the group does not have the capacity to identify the cause of the neurotoxic symptoms of patients nor the ability to determine responsibility for the attack.28

The most forceful condemnation of the Obama Administration’s white paper on its goal to invade Syria is the line that reads: the Syrian military was preparing to use Sarin gas. The verb was is the past tense and with the gerund following it indicates that it never took place. What concrete evidence that is scientifically provable is that the rebels—the jihadists and Islamist-extremists (Muslim Brotherhood), were the ones that did use Sarin gas as reported by Carla del Ponte, chief investigator with the UN Human Rights Commission.29 The Mint Press of Minnesota received an account from reporter Yahya Ababneh in Ghouta who spoke directly with the rebels, doctors, and others in Syria who said the gas was used by the rebels who were supplied by Saudi militant Abu Ayesha, leader of the rebel battalion in Damascus.30

Syrian authorities anounced that they found a cove of chemical weapons used by the rebels.

Ghouta, a farming community (known as the Greenbelt) in Rif Dimashq close to the eastern part of Damascus), townspeople said the rebels were using mosques and private houses to sleep while storing their weapons in tunnels, while the militant group Jabhat al-Nusra, linked to al-Qaeda, said it would attack civilians in Assad regime’s heartland of Latakia on Syria’s western coast at the instruction of Saudi Prince Bandar. 31. There is now proof of Sarin gas being kept in tunnels occupied by rebel fighters that Obama refuses to let anyone in his cabinet or administration discuss.32 While the carnage continues to occur, the Israeli armed forces inch near the boarder of Syria with armed tanks, extraordinary fire power and canisters of poisonous gases and watch the war expand.  At the same time, John Kerry now Secretary of State, is asking allies not to stop illegal settlements on Palestinian land in order to stay on the approved side of Israel’s ruling junta.

Authorized/approved comments are now put forth by staff working for Colin Powell that the party responsible for the Sarin gas is not Syria, but Israel.33  Even current Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel says that at best Syria may have used chemical weapons on a small scale but not equal to the extent that current Secretary of State John Kerry is arguing before the world in a deranged effort to solidify support for Obama’s war quest.34  This continues despite Al-Qaeda attack on cities (especially Christian communities) in an effort to wrest control away from Assad and to the Muslim Brotherhood. Al-Qaeda opened fire on one street and killed three people immediately,35  and then began to push Islam onto the other inhabitants while attacking Christian homes and churches.

Ted Cruz (R-TX)

Ted Cruz (R-TX)

The least intelligent member of the USA Senate, Ted Cruz (R-TX) rejoices at the thought of war. The Canadian-born (and thus not qualified to be President of the USA, but is considering a run for the Oval Office), delighted in Obama’s mantra from “peace” (for which Obama wrongfully received the Noble Peace Prize), but argues “Bullies and tyrants don’t respect weakness”.  The nonsense spat out by Cruz has several followers, but few support his lust for violence and war, and have called him on that. Cruz, typically, thumbed his nose as he readied for a run for the White House.  What Ted Cruz forgets, or chooses to ignore, or hopes that his followers will overturn is the USA Constitutional requirements to be President of the USA.  The USA Constitution clearly states:

US Constitution, Article II, Section 1

(Age and Citizenship requirements ) No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.  Cruz was born in Canada.

The absurdity of this comment  was quickly noted, not by illiterate pundits, but by comedians, such as Stewart who slammed the President whom he had vigorously supported previous to the USA provocation, by noting what “real weakness” is (retaliating against the insane proclamations of Donald Rumsfeld who had installed Saddam Hussein into power for Ronald Reagan, then urged the Bushes to declare war on Iraq, of Bill Kristol, editor of the far-right war-goading Weekly Standard, who demanded immediate action to prove that the USA was not “a weakling”):36  “I’ll tell you what would be a real weakness: Clark Kent (Superman) laying waste to a town because someone called him a pussy (for wearing glasses and not fighting openly the first time someone demeaned him or cast aspirations on his “manhood”).37

 A series of massive explosions illuminated the dark sky over Damascus early Sunday, igniting renewed claims that Israel has launched more bombs from the border.

The issue of “chemical warfare” is a sham, not only according to Russia and other nations, but even retired four-star USA general Wesley Clark.38  Opponents of Obama and the forthcoming illegal war against Syria are now faced with federal court orders prohibiting them from talking with the media and those who do can face up to 100 years in prison.  The myth of the USA being the bedrock of democracy is finally being exposed as deceit, deception and corruption to keep a plutocracy in power at all cost.39   Vladimir Putin of Russia refuses to work with Obama as he said “because there is no proof” that Syria used Sarin gas on its own people.40

September 2013 Pew Poll on Americans attitude toward war with Syria

September 2013 Pew Poll on Americans attitude toward war with Syria

Obama, Biden and Kerry must be impeached for lying to the USA people, supporting terrorists in Syria, and putting USA military (when it is obviously not necessary) in harm’s way.  Harm’s way is defined as danger, putting any person in a dangerous situation or a situation that can lead to the loss of life or motor ability as well as putting in jeopardy the life, property and happiness of others with no consent or without cause. An war unwanted by the people and not authorized by the US Congress puts everyone in danger. The Constitution of the USA gives the Congress the authority to declare war, raise an army, and fund wars, while it gives the president the power to manage and execute military action. However, over the years a spineless Congress did delegate war powers to the president under the ruse that the President must be able to act quickly in times of emergency.  Syria’s Civil war does not constitute an emergency. The Korean Conflict (under Harry S Truman (there is no period after the letter S as it is not an initial for a name) and the Vietnam Conflict (under Lyndon Johnson) were both wars as the president stated he had to act for the good of the people and to protect Americans.  In both cases it was a lie, with only the Korean Conflict being authorized by the United Nations–not by Congress.41  If Congress authorizes a military strike against Syria, that over 60% of the people reject the people have a right to overthrow that Congress.   Even Thomas Jefferson stated that a people under a  tyrant have the right to rebel and remove the tyrant from office by any means–as did the North American colonists on the western seaboard when they rejected the rule of King George III.

Only 36 percent of Republicans and 25 percent of Democrats support airstrikes. Obama has lost his popular margin and their number is growing. 42  The war hawks in Congress are not listening to the voters who put them in Congress to represent them. Congress today only represents itself and the interests of the war machine (the military), big business,  arms manufacturers, and the purveyors of doom.

  • N E Longoria  says:

    Every American should call or email (most voicemail systems are too full to take messages) US Senators and Congresspersons with the following message:

    Please vote against air strikes in Syria or any other action that could result in military intervention and allow the United Nations to seek a peaceful resolution.

  • Joe Besse  says:

    Well said! But we must remember it isn’t against the law to stupid in America. Living in Texas I especially appreciate your comment on the eligibility of Mr Cruz to hold the executive office. It should be clear to those who read Article II, Sec 1 (Paragraph 6) that there is No Mention of parentage. Whether or not the candidate’s parents(s)are U.S. citizens has nothing to do with it. It’s gonna be interesting.

  • Sami Thompson  says:

    What the Hell! What’s going on in Washington, DC? WHY is President Obama doing this? Remember his campaign promises? He promised to “get us out of Afghanistan,” because we’d been at war for too long. Does he think we’ve had peace for too long, because I sure haven’t seen it.

    This is terribly disappointing for a long-time Obama supporter; and it’s exactly why I need an invisibility cloak (or spell) so I can slip in and be a “fly on the wall” once in awhile. Plus, I could finally learn the truth about flying saucers.

    Seriously, I’m at a loss to explain or understand why things have taken this turn. I was seriously upset at the NSA surveillance revelations, but this is far and away more disturbing.

    Thank you for bringing all of this to light. I’ll have to think on this – and reread it – just to digest it all. Your articles are always so well-written and well-referenced. Thanks again!
