“If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They don’t care for human beings.” –Nelson Mandela, Iraq Speech 2003
“Throughout the world, on any given day, a man, woman, or child is likely to be displaced, tortured, killed, or disappeared’, at the hands of governments or armed political groups. More often than not, the United States shares the blame.” –Amnesty International, 1996
“Hypocrisy, double standards, and “but nots” are the price of universalist pretensions. Democracy is promoted, but not if it brings Islamic fundamentalists to power; on proliferation is preached for Iran and Iraq but not for Israel….Double standards in practice are the unavoidable price of universal standards of principle” –Professor Samuel Huntington, “Clash of Civilization and the Remaking of the World Order”, (p. 184)
The American-Israeli Ukrainian Crisis
Does anyone in the U.S. government or media realize how extremely hypocritical for the U.S. to demand Russia respect the sovereignty, integrity, human rights, and “self determination” of the Ukrainian people?
Long before it even became a nation Americans, and later America, have never given a damn about any nation’s sovereignty, territorial integrity, independence, or people’s right to “self determination”. If a nation has some economic or strategic benefit to the U.S. you’ll become a victim of the freedom spreading U.S. military.
Do you ever notice that whenever the U.S. faintly pushes for peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians that a Jewish manufactured crisis occurs somewhere in the world to distract the U.S. and the world from dealing with Israel’s brutal military occupation of Palestinian territories and its killing siege of Gaza for 7 years? I don’t know about you but there’s something Jewishly rotten in the Ukraine Crisis.
Victoria Nuland, Jewish, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Europe. Three Jewish Neocons Plotted to Install a Jew as Prime Minister of the Ukraine. They succeeded. Victoria Nuland, Jewish, is Assistant Secretary of State for Europe, plotted with US Ambassador to the Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt, Jewish, and working with a third Jew, Jeffrey Feltman, Under Secretary General of the United Nations, to install a fourth Jew, Arseniy Yatseniuk, as Prime Minister of Ukraine weeks before the departure of Ukraine’s President. They’re Free to Run the World and no one dares to stop them.
First the taped conversation that belies the lie that the uprising in the Ukraine was a populist one and not instigated by the CIA and the Mossad. Second, notice how callously and casually U.S. officials discuss manipulating events and choosing the appropriate subservient political leaders in foreign countries. Weeks before the toppling of Ukraine’s elected government and the invasion by Russia of east Ukraine, a conversation between 2 Jews was taped that dealt with the Ukraine uprising, Russia, and the E.U. The 2 Jews (both Neocons) were Assistant Secretary of State for Europe, Victoria Nuland, and the U.S. Ambassador to the Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt. Nuland, after disparaging the E.U. with the remark “F..K the E.U.” went on to tell the Ambassador that out of the potential candidates for Prime Minister, she says: “I think Yats (Arseniy Yatseniuk) is the guy who’s got the economic experience.”
I don’t think this is a Zionist Mossad Neocon conspiracy. It’s always just pure coincidences.
NO nation, not Russia, the U.S., or Israel, have any right to use their military might as a tool of foreign poicy to invade, bomb, or occupy any other nation or peoples. Russia is wrong to invade the Ukraine under the guise of protecting the ethnic Russians as Reagan was wrong to invade Grenada to protect American medical students.
Russia claims its protecting it’s national security and interests given that if the Ukraine joins the western camp NATO will be at its doorstep and pose a powerful military threat to Russia. Recall President Kennedy in 1963, much like Russia today, was willing to risk a nuclear war with the Soviet Union over its deployment of missiles in Cuba that posed a military threat to the United States.
After his meeting with the leader of the world’s largest violator of International and Humanitarian Laws, 90 U.N. Security Council Resolutions, the Fourth Geneva Convention, and so much more –Benjamin Netanyahu — President Obama had the hypocritical chutzpah to denounce Russia for invading its neighbor and violating international law.
President Obama said:
“Prime Minister Netanyahu seems to have a different set of lawyers making a different set of interpretations, but I don’t think that’s fooling anybody….I think everybody recognizes that, although Israel has legitimate interests in what happens in a neighboring state, that does not give it the right to use force as a means of exerting influence inside of that state.” OOPS, sorry.
He was referring of course to President Putin and Russia.
Netanyahu came to the U.S. to meet with Obama and Congressman as well as attend AIPAC’s Annual Conference where White House officials and Congressmen go to speak pledge their undying allegiance to Israel. It is a historical miracle that a small nation with a small Jewish Zionist population can truly control America’s foreign policy, push it to fights its wars, and deplete its treasury despite enormous budget cuts to domestic programs such as feeding America’s poor children.
Please watch this embarrassing and disgusting video of President Obama’s speech at AIPAC in 2011 where he in effect told the audience I’m not just the U.S. President but consider me a Jewish Zionist President for Israel. He pathetically groveled and proudly proclaimed all the things he did for Israel given that 2011 was a Presidential election year and he desperately need Jewish money and political/media support.

Some of the things he proudly said to showcase his undying, unshakeable bond with Israel. This is a man who agreed to cut $800 Million from the Food Stamp program to feed hungry American families and children.
- Increased financial aid to Israel despite budget cuts. He agreed to give Israel an additional $40 BILLION in military aid, over Bush’s already $30 Billion..
- Boycotted the Durban Conference Against Racism which highlights Israel’s Racist/Apartheid policies against the Palestinians.
- Vetoed the Goldstone Report that said Israel committed war crimes and crimes against humanity in its murderous attack on Gaza 2008-2009.
- Vetoed a U.N. Security Council Resolution that called Israel’s settlements “illegal”. The vote in the council was 14 – 1, with the one being the U.S. All previous administrations have called them “illegal”.
Obama is acting like every previous President who would rather starve American children than cut one dollar from Israel’s aid.
U.S. Presidents would rather send American soldiers to die for Israel than risk Jewish wrath.
Please Watch this important Video done by the excellent journalist and documentarian, Anthony Lawson, who exposes Jewish Power in the U.S. in general and the current role they’re playing in Syria’s civil war and a future war with Iran.

Every American must watch the Video below of General Wesley Clark speaking in 2007 about the lack of justification to attack Iraq, the Pentagon Neocon plan to attack 7 other Arab and Muslim nations in five years, and most importantly please pay close attention to his remarks about a “group” of people who have carried out what he calls a “Policy Coup” in this country hijacking the Government’s policies to fulfill their agenda.
Without directly blaming the Jewish Neocons he does mention the PNAC, a Jewish Neocon outfit, as well as a few of their names. He speaks of Paul Wolfowitz in 1991 saying we need to topple Saddam Hussein. Please visit his site at www.stoopiranwar.com

Has the United States Ever Violated International Law?
The question should be when has it not violated International and Humanitarian Laws since their adoption. The nation that has invaded, occupied, bombed (including using Atomic Bombs and Banned Weapons), assassinated world leaders, propped murderous dictators, supported terrorist and death squads, overthrew governments at will, blocked shipping lanes, placed sanctioned more countries than anyone else.
After Israel, the U.S. has violated the U.N. Charter, International and Humanitarian Laws, killed more civilians, and used more illegal banned weapons on civilians than any other nation.
Here are some pertinent facts about America’s use of its military as the primary tool of its foreign policy. Shoot first, then ask questions later.
1.) The U.S. has a larger Defense Budget than the next 25 nations combined.
2.) According to SIPRI Yearbook 2013; (Stockholm International Peace Research Institute) U.S. Military Expenditure (2012): $682 Billion (39% of World’s share) —Russia’s Military Expenditure (2012): $90.7 Billion (5.2% of World’s share)
3.) U.S. has more than 1,000 Military Bases Around the World.
From SIPRI Yearbook 2013: Defense Budgets
“The Worldwide control of humanity’s economic, social and political activities is under the helm of US corporate and military power. Underlying this process are various schemes of direct and indirect military intervention. These US sponsored strategies ultimately consist in a process of global subordination”
–Professor Jules Dufour, “The Worldwide Network of US Military Bases“, Global Research, first published July 1, 2007
4.) Several Presidential Doctrines beginning with the Monroe Doctrine that established the right of the U.S. to intervene around the world.
Which Countries has the U.S. recently invaded, occupied, bombed and still bombing today, or overthrew its democratically elected government?
Serbia, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, and Egypt.
Historically the U.S. has bombed these 21 countries, many more than once, since World War II. It does not include other nations like Yemen and Somalia.
The many countries the U.S. has bombed since WWII and the millions who’ve died solely for Economic reasons.
In Egypt: Egyptians launched mass protests three years ago to topple the American puppet dictator, Hosni Mubarak, as part of the Arab Spring.
Mubarak resigned and for the first time in Egypt’s history a democratic election was held giving the Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Mursi the Presidency and an overwhelming majority in the Parliament.
Naturally that was not acceptable to the U.S., Israel, and Arab regional governments thus they began to plot the overthrow of Mursi’s government and reinstalling a subservient puppet military regime once again.
After the military coup the U.S. announced its full support for the military dictatorship but in the Ukraine –hypocrisy, hypocrisy — it condemned Russia for not respecting Ukraine’s non-elected government.
Here is Secretary of State John Kerry in Kiev; “We hope Russia will respect the election that you have.”
In IRAN: Brief History of U.S. Aggression Against Iran.
1.) 1953: U.S., U.K. overthrew a democratically elected Prime Minister who threatened their monopoly of Iran’s oil industry.
2.) U.S. pushed and supported Saddam Hussein to attack Iran, a war that lasted from 1980-1988 and cost over one million dead.
3.) 1987 U.S. bombed 2 Iranian Oil Platforms and took out 6 Iranian warships.
4.) July 3, 1988 the U.S. Naval Cruiser, USS Vincennes launched a missile to blow up an Iranian civilian airline flight, Iran Air Flight 655, that killed all 290 passengers and crew, including 66 children. It was downed while on Iranian territory. The flight path was from Tehran to Dubai.
Notice the excitement of the crew at bringing down the civilian plane. The Captain and some Crew were awarded medals.

5.) 2010 the U.S. and Israel attacked Iran’s Nuclear Facilities with the Stuxnet Virus that shut down the facilities for a long time.
6.) “Obama to pressure Israel to stop assassinating Iranian Nuclear Scientists”. Its beyond belief that Israel’s illegal assassination of Irananian scientists does not conjure any condemnation by the U.N. or anyone else but is simply accepted as a fait accompli, akin to all illegal acts Israel does. In fact, the reverse happens. Israel is praised for its “self defense”. What would happen if Iran was killing Israeli scientists?
7.) AT the White House and at the AIPAC Annual Conference discussions with Netanyah and Jewish Americans are being held on how and when to launch another Pre-emptive war on another Muslim nation.
The discussion is frank and public without the slightest concern that even discussing an aggressive attack on another nation violates the U.N. Charter and International Law that the U.S. and Israel are signatories to.
The U.S. is angry that a superpower illegally invaded and occupies a smaller weaker nation.
Russia Invades Ukraine: BAD
U.S. Travels 6,192 Miles to Invade Iraq: GOOD
According to the Hypocritical Criteria for Invasions and Genocide:
BAD: Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine, a border nation out of a perceived western encroachment and threat to its security and interests.
GOOD: U.S. illegally invades and bombs Iraq based on incredible manufactured government.
GOOD: Media lies.
EXCELLENT: Israel – the most hated, despised, and nauseating nation on earth, an evil enemy of all of humanity (especially Christians), a nation that thirsts for conflicts and blood, and truly runs the West’s foreign policy.
According to the bought and paid for White House and Congress, Israel is a model of democracy, respects human rights, and abides by International Law unlike the Arabs/Muslims.
Israel is a criminal nation forcefully imposed and implanted on the Arab and Muslim world. Yet its evil existence impacts the world’s foreign policy given its direct ownership and control of the most powerful nation on earth, the U.S.A.
With British and American backing European Jews STOLE and ethnically cleansed Palestine of its native inhabitants who’ve lived there for thousands of years as an outcome of a political movement, ZIONISM, which had nothing to do with Judaism or the fulfilment of Biblical prophecy as so many ignorant gullible Christian Zionists believe. In fact almost all the early Zionist leaders were atheists, socialists, communists, Buddhists, and some were Christians converting out of a need for survival in Christian Europe.
The Theft of Palestine
The Ethnic Cleansing of the followers of Jesus Christ and Muhammad; (Peace be upon them both).
Israel may escape justice in the International Criminal Court, BUT IT WILL NOT ESCAPE GOD’S ULTIMATE JUSTICE.
It’s obviously OK for the U.S., Europe, and Israel (the civilized democratic folks) to attack, bomb, commit war crimes, crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing, arrest anyone for any reason, throw them in prison without a charge or trial, send teens and elderly men to Guantanamo, illegally torture prisoners at Abu Ghraib, or “rendition” them back to their native countries to die or be tortured.
This Ukrainian crisis will soon be resolved peacefully and satisfactorily. It must, because war is not an option for anyone. Europe depends on Russia for about a quarter of its oil and gas needs and can ill afford at a time of a financial crisis to jeopardize that imort. The U.S. also can ill afford another war neither economically nor militarily, but given that 2014 is a Congressional midterm election idiotic politicians will bluster and huff and puff showing their toughness with Russia, although none will send their children to a Second Crimean War 160 years after the first one.
The Cold War will never be over, neither with Russia nor with the upcoming one with China.
It will always raise its ugly head when the opportunity avails itself. Now and in the future Historians will ask, “who the hell gave America the right to be the world’s policemen intervene in the fate and future of other nations and peoples deciding who lives and who dies? Another question will be: “Where the hell are the American people as their country is owned, run, and ruined by Jewish Power for the interests of Israel?”
BUT America’s Hypocrisy and Double Standards will never end. Nor will the Jewish hold on the country end unless and until the American people revolt against that foreign occupation and reclaim their independent country.
