US government “leadership” violates all Americans by constantly violating war law won by our families through two world wars. The US was the primary author of current war law, bound by treaty and Constitutional Law under Article 6 as the US’ supreme law. War law states a nation can use their military on other nations only if that nation’s government attacks.
Afghanistan and Iraq’s government did not attack the US on 9/11. Under law and to serve the purpose of the law to protect the world from the “scourge of war,” the UN Security Council quickly aligned for international cooperation for factual discovery and arrests of suspects. Afghanistan agreed.
US “leadership” committed a nation’s worst crime: using military to kill human beings against clear law, and against legal peaceful alternative already explicitly agreed upon. US “leadership” committed unlawful Wars of Aggression. They are War Criminals.
US “leadership” violated a UN-managed “cease fire” in Iraq while the UN was finishing weapons inspections. Rather than have this peaceful legal and agreed-upon alternative (to a questionable issue in the first place), US “leadership” chose to unlawfully order to bomb, invade, and occupy Iraq.
Again, the above facts are uncontested and easily verifiable; the only reason they are not clear is that with all historic criminal regimes, US “leadership” includes propagandizing corporate media to lie before the crimes, lie during the crimes, and lie after the crimes.
US “leadership” have military-murdered over a million human beings and five thousand US soldiers. They plundered Americans of ~$5 trillion in long-term costs in no-bid contracts to their own corporations; a staggering and difficult to grasp $50,000 per average US family.
US “leadership,” now desperate from the “99%” recognition and stating the “emperor has no clothes” facts as you are reading here, assassinates US citizens at their dictate and passed NDAA to order US military to seize Americans from their homes and “disappear” them.
US “leadership” lies to create a new war target: Iran. Just as we know all “reasons” to attack Iraq were known lies as they were told, anyone can verify that “reasons” to attack Iran are obvious lies: Iran’s president only asks for lawful acts with Palestinians from Israel (not “wiping Israel off the map”), and all Iran’s nuclear energy and medical isotopes are verified as only and always used for their legal purposes (not a “nuclear program” that might have “secret” planning for weapons). Moreover, it’s conservative uncontested history that the US overthrew Iran’s democracy from 1953-1979, and assisted criminal war on Iran from 1980-1988.
The predictable US “leadership” move is a false flag attack by them upon Americans that is then blamed on Iran. That is, US “leadership” will attack and kill Americans, use their own media to lie and blame Iran, and then continue the lies in a “defensive” war.
US military, law enforcement, all Americans, and all global citizens have opportunity to stand, speak, and act for truth, justice and peace before Obama and “leadership” mass-murder Iranians.
The most powerful and effective act is to arrest US criminal “leadership” for their obvious War Crimes.
The US has actively violated treaties for foreign wars from over 160 years; again in conservative uncontested history.
The above links document the facts. Here are analogies that might help communicate because the stories sooth cognitive dissonance, place the facts in an abstract form that become obvious, and use a different part of our brains to more strongly see, stand, and state what is really “emperor has no clothes” obvious:
Carl Herman is a National Board Certified Teacher in economics, government, and history. His hobby is research, education, and lobbying for improved public policy. A principal project of his 30-years’ experience working with US “leadership” in government, economics and corporate media was to grow the citizen’s lobby, RESULTS, that led to two UN Summits (1990 World Summit for Children – the largest meeting of heads of state in world history – and the 1997 Microcredit Summit – topic of the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize). Because US political leadership of both parties reneged on each and every public and private promise to end poverty, and US corporate media behaved as their political propagandists, Carl shifted his hobby to “follow the money.” His conclusions are explained and documented in these two articles (academic/professional voice, and more passionate citizen voice):
