When she was Senator, Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton voted for the US invasion of Iraq, an obvious international crime against humanity that would take the lives of a million and half innocent Muslims, probably half of them children. Last week her nominating Democratic Convention, featured a Muslim father, whose son was killed participating in US crime against Muslim people ranting about what a bad guy her opponent Donald Trump is and praising himself and his son as patriotic, though Trump had spoken out against the illegal and criminal invasion of Iraq.
Here below, are the very terse, concise, precise, unequivocal, brief to the point, clear and easy to understand Nuremberg Principles of International Law, mostly written by Americans, signed on to by all nations and first used to hang a number of Nazi leaders of a Germany, that invaded only some twenty nations – US since has invaded perhaps more than as twice that number. (Few Americans are interested in this comparison)
Any person who commits an act which constitutes a crime under international law is responsible therefor and liable to punishment.
The fact that internal law does not impose a penalty for an act which constitutes a crime under international law does not relieve the person who committed the act from responsibility under international law.
The fact that a person who committed an act which constitutes a crime under international law acted as Head of State or responsible Government official does not relieve him from responsibility under international law.
The fact that a person acted pursuant to order of his Government or of a superior does not relieve him from responsibility under international law, provided a moral choice was in fact possible to him.
Any person charged with a crime under international law has the right to a fair trial on the facts and law.
The crimes hereinafter set out are punishable as crimes under international law:
(a) Crimes against peace: (i) Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances;
Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of the acts mentioned under (i).
(b) War crimes:
Violations of the laws or customs of war which include, but are not limited to, murder, ill-treatment or deportation to slave-labour or for any other purpose of civilian population of or in occupied territory, murder or ill-treatment of prisoners of war, of persons on the seas, killing of hostages, plunder of public or private property, wanton destruction of cities, towns, or villages, or devastation not justified by military necessity.
(c) Crimes against humanity:
Murder, extermination, enslavement, deportation and other inhuman acts done against any civilian population, or persecutions on political, racial or religious grounds, when such acts are done or such persecutions are carried on in execution of or in connection
with any crime against peace or any war crime.
Complicity in the commission of a crime against peace, a war crime, or a crime against
humanity as set forth in Principle VI is a crime under international law.
(Your author’s mentor and dear friend, Former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark has stated that by Article Six of the US Constitution, the Nuremberg Principles of International Law are an integral part of the law of the land.)
Later in the week, the monolithic wars justifying US media, for decades force fed and controlled by the CIA, brought out information that seemed to indicate Donald Trump’s unwillingness to participate in a previous US genocidal crime against humanity to prevent Vietnam from having the communist government it has today and has had since Americans got tired of killing and being killed in what was French Indochina colonies before World War Two.
Do readers recall what America’s beloved heroic champion Muhammad Ali said about his refusal to be drafted during the US war in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia?
“Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on Brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights? No I’m not going 10,000 miles from home to help murder and burn another poor nation simply to continue the domination of white slave masters of the darker people the world over. This is the day when such evils must come to an end. I have been warned that to take such a stand would cost me millions of dollars. But I have said it once and I will say it again. The real enemy of my people is here. I will not disgrace my religion, my people or myself by becoming a tool to enslave those who are fighting for their own justice, freedom and equality. If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people they wouldn’t have to draft me, I’d join tomorrow. I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I’ll go to jail, so what? We’ve been in jail for 400 years.”
US criminal media, having promoted and still justifying what Rev. Dr. King called“atrocity wars and covert violence on three continents since 1945,” now fields questions, being asked in recent days by prominent columnists, both liberal and conservative, about the Republican presidential nominee mental health.“Yes, Donald Trump is crazy,”Steven Hayes added last week in the conservative Weekly Standard.David Brooks wrote in the New York Times on July 29.“He is a morally untethered, spiritually vacuous man who appears haunted by multiple personality disorders.”The New York Times would have us believe in wars in much smaller nations that have taken the lives of many millions of children and maimed tens of millions.Dropping twice the total amount of bombs dropped in Europe, Africa and Asia by both sides during WW II on the tiny Buddhist rice farming nation of Vietnam, our ally in WW II is sanity?Our ‘sane’ media celebrities might best remember that five Nazi German media celebrities were convicted at Nuremberg. Two were hanged, one committed suicide, two went to prison. Think of their future.
Your author would like to point out an obvious media push to resell US wars in smaller nations as having been wonderfully patriotic, during the current election process in which so many Americans are backing candidate Trump’s call for investing in America rather than in overseas wars and what Martin Luther King called“unjust predatory investments, the immense profits from which bring Americans privileges and pleasures they refuse to give up.”
The current media managed US election process seems a playing out in public of indecision within the rich one tenth of one percent, who rule America and most of the world, indecision over whether to switch to less profitable investing in their home base America and Europe, or to continue wildly enriching themselves investing in the profitable but illegal use of the nation’s armed forces and in the much higher profit rendering low wage economies of the rest of the world, thereby accelerating forward the arrival of the time when those Third World nations led by China will overtake the US and Europe in economic and political power and demand equity.
Billionaire Republican candidate Donald Trump seems to have been designated by a forward thinking powerful mass of investors to present a demand that government force America’s wealth controlling deep-pockets to invest in a United States suffering from neglect, rather than continue to promote investing more profitably in the low wage economies of developing nations regardless of the consequences of speeding up development of future contenders for world power.
This group of major investors must be aware that hugely populated China will inevitably replace America as the world’s most influential society and have therefore enabled Trump to come near to suggesting that it be better for the US to stop investing in profitable genocidal and illegal use of its Armed Forces, CIA, State Department, media and sanctions. Of course, though Trump might seem to be reproaching ruling investors in genocide with a least some of the truth, Trump dare not awaken sympathy for the innocent millions of victims of US firepower.
However, Trump, with wars promoting media either ridiculing him or making a blatant over the top show of frightened opposition, has been maintaining among other things that the five trillion dollars spent on wars for regime change in the Middle East should have been spent in the US rebuilding its infrastructure; that NATO is obsolete; that the US should seek friendship with China and Russia; that he likes Xi Jinping and Putin, (America’s perennial and sacrosanct mortal enemies!) and would get along fine with them. Trump has called the last two term Republican President, George Bush, a liar for having lied about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction and has voiced suspicion about the 9/11 attack that happened so easily on Bush’s watch. Trump has disputed hailing Senator John McCain, 2008 Republican presidential candidate, a hero for having been shot down in Vietnam, and has condemned and ridiculed eighty percent of media’s reporters and commentators as pathetic liars (which comes to the what is in reality that hundred percent, who are willing to preposterously describe America’s running crimes against humanity as heroic deeds in defense of American freedom). Trump has asked, “why must the United States lead the world everywhere on the globe and play the role of the world’s policeman, now for example in Ukraine? “Trump asks,“why does the United States always pursue regime changes – Iraq, Libya, Ukraine, and now it wants a regime change in Syria, Damascus, when the result is disaster.”
This wholesale attack on the ‘patriotic’ war establishment is unheard of, and it seems a more substantial amount of the powerful investors ruling the US and the world have their investments so heavily weighted in the super lucrative military industrial complex, that they must desperately count on the West’s overkill military dominance to assure Western control of the world far into the foreseeable future. Investors locked into the financial-industrial-military complex, perhaps still led by now ancient David Rockefeller and his intellectual presuming confidants, Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski, must surely be more powerful than investors, whose portfolios are weighted in production, trade, acquisitions and currencies manipulation. A glance at our vastly over militarized world, continuing massively destructive wars and steady impoverishment of half of mankind would seem to be sufficient to assume the primacy of investments in the profitable but criminal use of Armed Forces and CIA.
Since its Operation Mockingbird  in the early 1950’s, the CIA has overseen, fed and tightly controlled the monolithic gigantic news and entertainment media corporations that produce an estimated 98% of all sources of information available to the American public. This explains the wild efforts of newscasters, commentators and talk shows to denigrate Trump in whatever desperate method possible.
But Albert Einstein said already in 1950:
“Under existing conditions, private capitalists inevitably control, directly or indirectly, the main sources of information (press, radio, education). It is thus extremely difficult, and indeed in most cases quite impossible, for the individual citizen to come to objective conclusions and to make intelligent use of his political rights.”– Albert Einstein, Essays in Humanism
Before Trump inserted doubts about the rational for US deadly and devastating foreign policy, mass media had been dutifully preparing the public for war with Russia, China and Iran. Even Left wing journalists had been predicting doom – inescapable world war.
Since Investors in outrageously murderous criminal ventures have had their co-criminal wars-heralding media convince Mr. and Mrs. America to see US perpetrated genocide after genocide as perfectly acceptable, even praiseworthy, at first, media sought to ridicule Trump’s anti-war pro peace posture, but then, perhaps noticing public appeal for it, changed tactics to putting a cap on the public being aware of Trump’s less belligerent foreign policy, and has continued to focus on slandering Trump as a racist and worst, by taking his words out of context. It may continue to be effective in diminishing Trump’s approval rating, but in each case of distortion, Trump might be able to clear through, e.g. Mexicans in the US know better than anyone else that they are the first targets of the predators easily sneaking across the border along with good people seeking work. So many Mexicans here came seeking refuge from a horribly criminal Mexican government.
Obviously, since predatory investments go hand in hand with bombings and invasions, the Military Industrial Complex has to be virulently opposed to forcing investors to invest in the USA as Trump, and to some degree Sanders, have been trumpeting to an ever widening audience, however, with China’s rise as a world power making itself more noticeable month by month, economic might has begun to loom more and more important than military might. After all, bigger money buys bigger guns and the biggest money will always buy the most of anything necessary. Equally important, one can suppose all investors are aware of a predicted future in which China and not the US will be controlling critical world institutions including the United Nations and its courts.
Will some future Chinese leader perhaps point to the administrations of a President Trump as having had the foresight to create a bridge between Western imperialism and a China led renaissance of humanity, which this writer believes will put a new and peaceful world under control of human intelligence, or will the wildly genocidal speculative banking industry of the unregulated white Western colonial-neocolonialism have its grand finale in one last cataclysmic horror before expiring?
Shall anyone hope for the permanence of Western colonial-neocolonial capitalist imperialist ‘civilization?’All our lauded technological progress — our very civilization – is like the axe in the hand of the pathological criminal.”wrote Albert Einstein in a letter to Heinrich Zangger (1917)
If run away insanity for war and domination is unable to bring off the World War America needs to forestall an Asian, African, Latin American led world dawning, American will benefit from Wisdom of the Orient soon. Americans realize that their two hundred forty year young United States of America has been the envy of much of the world for more than a hundred years. Chinese realize that five thousand year old China was for more than a thousand of those years looked up to as wealthiest and most civilized and advanced nation in the world. Take it from someone who has lived and worked among the Chinese in China for years, the Chinese are very confident in themselves, intensely focused on family and having a good time, with no need to prove themselves and gain control of other societies, which in the past have had little to offer China. The multipolar world in arrival looks better already.
In a multipolar world, the absurdities, illogic and insanity that justifies US NATO UN genocide will no longer be successfully propagated. These outrageous fabrications just wont wash when exposed to the light of day by new major sources of information in Asia, Africa and Latin America that will appear as economic power shifts Eastward and Southward.
The shift of world economic power to the East and South will bring about the end of the ability of Western monopolized sources of information to criminally mis-inform, dis-inform and instill the fraudulent fears that have built an infantile acceptance of continual neocolonial genocide as necessary.A current example being, though on TV everyone sees the brand new white Toyota trucks and sophisticated heavy weaponry of a wild ISIS successfully destroying America’s designated enemies, (President Assad’s Syrians and the Shiites ruling Iraq), ridiculous, but believed, TV and print media commentary portrays the most powerful military in history, the US Armed Forces as waring for five years unsuccessfully against a ragtag ISIS. ISIS has long ago been identified as yet another terrorist organization created within CIA’s wide international network.  A few years earlier the same gangs in heavily armed pickup trucks were portrayed by 24 hour saturation CNN and al Jazeera as the citizenry of prosperous Libya in revolt The enormous TV believing population, even today, will still not have heard that Libyans had enjoyed a UN Quality of Life Index higher than nine European nations including Russia, with fine free health care and education in a real socialist democracy, and that Gaddafi was Libya’s and black Africa’s hero for fighting neocolonial exploitation.
2. Mockingbird was a secret operation by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to influence media. Begun in the 1950s, organization recruited leading American journalists into a network to help present the CIA’s views, and funded some student and cultural organizations, and magazines as fronts and also worked to influence foreign media and political campaigns.
After 1953, Operation Mockingbird had major influence over 25 newspapers and wire agencies. The usual methodology was placing reports developed from intelligence provided by the CIA to witting or unwitting reporters. Those reports would then be repeated or cited by the preceding reporters which in turn would then be cited throughout the media wire services. These networks were run by people with well-known pro-American big business and anti-communist views.
The CIA currently maintains a network of individuals around the world who attempt to influence opinion through the use of covert propaganda, and provide direct access to a large amount of newspapers and periodicals, scores of press services and news agencies, radio and television stations, commercial book publishers, and other foreign media outlets.”
