Here is a very disturbing video that is a snapshot of just one GI and his inadvertently testifying to crimes against humanity in Iraq. Click on the title of the article or (click here).
Multiply his mindset and actions by a couple of hundred thousand and you will get a good idea of the magnitude of death and destruction the American military has visited upon the Iraqi people, whom we profess to be liberating. Obviously, another darker, psychological agenda is at work here.
This is what happens when ethics are abandoned in the military. The slow slide into Hell is assured after that. The destruction of the innocent is like a curse, setting in motion the self-destruction of those men and their institutions who perpetuate these crimes. General Douglas MacArthur understood this, and had this to say:
"The soldier, be he friend or foe, is charged with the protection of the weak and unarmed. It is the very essence and reason for his being. When he violates this sacred trust, he not only profanes his entire cult but threatens the very fabric of international society. The traditions of fighting men are long and honorable. They are based upon the noblest of human traits - sacrifice."
-General of the Army, Douglas MacArthur, 1946, confirming the death by hanging sentence imposed by a United States military commission on General Tomayuki Yamashita, convicted of failing to prevent Japanese Imperial troops under his command from committing massacres and outrages against prisoners of war and civilians in the last stages of the Japanese occupation of the Philippines.
This is why the American military must clean house rapidly as well as protect and distance itself from the diseased degeneracy of the White House and its inhabitants who have led us to this horrific point in our history.
