Us, Israel and wars of aggression

I have been thinking about Israel and the US lately.....
How alike they are in their corrupt ways.
What has been on my mind are how the elites of the two nations operate.
The governments. The decision makers. The ones with the power.
The power to decide who lives and who dies.
They decide to take the lives of others.
They offer up the sacrifice of their own peoples.
All for the most surreal of goals. They claim it is always for security, safety, peace.
Well you get the idea.
If not, I'll help.
Iraq. The attack on Iraq was necessary because Iraq allegedly had weapons of mass destruction, and were a threat to the entire world! So we were told over and over and over. Therefore, the country had to be destroyed, hundreds of thousands of civilians killed, scores more maimed, for the world to be safe.
Now Gaza.
Israel says Gaza has to be attacked for it's citizens to be safer. Therefore Israel has to go into Gaza and cause mayhem, destruction and death on a scale beyond my imagination. For Peace. For Security. It has to kill in the most wanton and despicable ways for security? Does that make sense?

And that the elites get enough of the population to go along with this, through propaganda usage just NEVER ceases to amaze me.

Well there it is, what has been on my mind- I want to include some food for thought.

On Oct. 1, 1946, judgment was delivered by the Nuremberg Tribunal. Robert H Jackson, the US Prosecutor at Nuremburg who went on to become a US Supreme Court Justice said:

“To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole. ...Crimes against international law are committed by men, not by abstract entities, and only by punishing individuals who commit such crimes can the provisions of international law be enforced.”

  1. Hi Penny, I'm new here, and found your blog via "The Swallow's Nest". I hope you don't mind :)

    Anyway, I can't help but agree with you here, the U.S. and Israel are out of their minds if they believe that the people will continue to buy into their bs that these wars are necessary to peace and justice.

    Unfortunately though, I don't believe that they will ever be fully held accountable for their actions.

  2. HI Skye!

    I absolutely do not mind in the least.
    I like that fellow over at swallows nest too, he is a good guy, when he is not being horrendoudly cruel that is

    wink wink (that is a bit of an inside joke)

    Yeah, they are out of their minds, out of their minds with powerlust.
    It is amazing that anyone buys their line of bs at all!
    There is so much information in this big old world to be had, to be shared, we don't need the msmedia to tell us what to think.

    While they may not be held accountable, I remain forever hopeful.
    Please come back whenever you fancy.
    and check out that interview I linked to, it is well worth the listen

  3. Hey Skye, I'd be very careful of that swallow chap, along with all the people he associates with. A sordid list of characters and no mistake.

    Apart from Pen of course, she's lovely (if a bit addled, ha ha). And Pen, you'll be pleased to know that I've now desisted from sporting with that mad Jewish boy pretending to be a Muslim. A recurring sketch is all very well but the gag usually palls in the second season. If you know what I mean. Still, I did have a laugh.

  4. Oh BTW, a curious thing happened today. Did you see a link on wrh about J Edgar Hoover and his use of blackmail as a political tool and the subseqent likely use of it today by other parties? The link was to a place called 'poor richard's blog'. I piled into the comments and mentioned Dave McGowan and put in a link to the pedophocracy. I think my line was 'Steel yourselves because you're about to have your minds blown.'

    I went back today and the whole thing had disappeared. The blog is still there but that particular page has vanished. And nor did a google search of 'poor richard pedophocracy' give any result. I know it was there since I saw it with half a dozen comments appearing after mine (with one piling in and agreeing with me). Curious, huh?

  5. Firstly Penny a word of caution about this lofty person henceforth to be referred to as Skye (the First and Ruler of all she tramples underfoot). She is a stalker, a demon woman, I run she chases, I hide she seeks, I cower in dark places she turns on the lights. Very much a predator prey thingy. Sad Sad sad.

    On the upside though I must admit she does clean up fairly well on those occasional times when she is allowed out of the Home on a day pass. Yuh know the kind of home, the one with the kinetic energy absorbent D├ęcor. Oh and her cookings not TOO bad, especially. When one considers the fact that for safety concerns she’s only allowed the use of Plastic utensils.

    So Pen believe not what she says, for she lives in a world of fuzzy edges and pastel colors. Things are not always as they appear to be.

  6. Thank you for your kind welcome Penny!

    Nobody, no worries there, I'm all too familiar with the likes of "The Fish", by the way, I've been to your blog as well and really like what you have to say there :).

    Fish ya bloody fool,it was my grandmother let out of the loony bin this time, not I. Or was that my mother? Oh boy, I keep getting confused on which get's let out when. If memory serves correctly, Fish, and I believe it does, you're the one who caught me, not the other way around. So give over and relax a bit, whould ya?

  7. Ha ha ha ha - 'plastic utensils', my laugh of the day. Madly, an image of Ruprecht from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels popped into my head.

  9. hey nobody:
    Yeah, I saw that of course the posers were there, continuing on the never ending conversation with themselves... losers.

    anyway, I did find your comment on the blog, so no worries- hopefully lots of people are reading that.

    I notice the person after you leaves a commment regarding JonBenet Ramsey.
    Interesting, because she is in the book, in Dave's book.
    He definitely thought there was something up with her "mysterious" murder and the subsequent successful cover-up, oops I mean 'investigation'

    you can see your comment here

  10. Thanks Pen, I saw that link but couldn't make sense of the title. Actually the whole blog confuses me. What's 'reader reader'? Are there two articles or one? I couldn't figure it out.

    And no need to explain it to me. I don't another regular blog to be visiting. Too many already!
