Turning Away From
American State Terrorism
By: Peter Chamberlin
American people realize this election represents a
turning point. In two months they will decide the
future direction of our nation. It’s a decision to
follow one path or another.”
-- - The choice
we face in November is very clear. It is a choice to continue to
support the US terror war, or to turn away from this path of
unlimited destruction. This lie-based war is all about terrorism
– whether America actually fights terrorism or promotes its use.
To find the answer to this conundrum all we have to do is turn
our gaze to Pakistan.
we find the complete history of the American “war on terrorism,”
from its Cold War origins nearly thirty years ago to its present
incarnation in the illegal American aggression in Pakistan’s
Frontier region (FATA, Federally Administered Tribal Areas) and
in American attempts to reignite the Cold War with Russia.
latest cross-border attack against Pakistan in South
Waziristan, which involved American helicopters and ground
troops, costing 15 villagers their lives, represents the first
steps in American attempts to escalate its war into a reasonable
facsimile of another world war.
America claims that its aggression against Pakistan is a
legitimate act of self-defense against the “Pakistani Taliban” (TTP,Tehrik-e-Taliban
Pakistan), who, it is claimed, are responsible for America’s
faltering war effort in Afghanistan. Wednesday’s aggression was
another attempt to get TTP leader Baitullah Mehsud (branded
“public enemy number one” by the US) or one of his top
commanders. Mehsud is the key to understanding America’s true
role in the terror war, that of state terrorism planner and
facilitator, in order to later assume the role of defender
against the terrorism it causes.
Mehsud assumed control of the TTP from its founder, his infamous
cousin Abdullah Mehsud. Abdullah was a prisoner at Guantanamo
before being inexplicably released to return to Pakistan, where
he founded the new Taliban splinter group. On his second day in
S. Waziristan he instigated the kidnapping of two Chinese
engineers from the building of the Gomal Zam Dam, beginning the
TTP fight against America’s adversaries in the region.
pattern for all future American terror attacks, the American
media reported that America’s secret allies, the TTP, were “al
Qaida linked.” Whenever and wherever the Western media uses the
expression “al Qaida linked,” to describe terrorist attacks,
they are referring to American terrorism. This is also painfully
true about those sinister forces that killed 3,000 American
civilians on September 11, 2001. American/“al Qaida” terrorism
always targets civilians, even American civilians. Next to the
US military, al Qaida is the greatest killer of innocent Muslims
in the world.
Now we have
American covert forces busily killing Pakistani civilians by the
hundreds, in order to justify the planned overwhelming American
assault upon Pakistan, which is conveniently situated between
the main target Iran and all that juicy fuel located in the
“Stans,” the former Soviet satellites where America’s Georgian
mercenaries are busily committing acts of genocide to restart
the new Cold War.
destabilization of nuclear-armed Pakistan has been the key to
the planned destruction of Iran and the seizure of the Caspian
region oil and gas fields and the pipeline routes for marketing
the stolen booty. Targeting American-backed militants, who are
using the same terrorist training camps created by the CIA to
launch a “jihad” against the Soviets, American interests are
seeking to topple the Pakistani government and to seize their
corporate American government cannot survive the debt-based
collapse of its own economy and the world economy without a
massive military expansion of its power, gaining control of the
world’s energy reserves. America cannot continue bullying the
world to have its way without this key asset.
Republican and Democratic co-conspirators understand the dilemma
created by America’s greed and attempts to forge a global
empire. This means that no matter who wins the November election
will continue this policy of international piracy and terrorism.
It is up to the American people to decide whether these policies
of state terrorism continue. It is our decision to make, whether
we allow America to destroy the world to save itself, or whether
we suffer the economic consequences for our actions in the past.
By our inaction, or by the wrong action, we allow the evil that
our government continually sows. By participating in our
farcical “free elections,” casting a vote for either man, we
vote to destroy a large portion of the world and its people.
We can no
longer give our assent to the crimes against humanity committed
against the world by our government on a daily basis.
Non-participation in the affairs of this government on any
level, will deny it the cover of legitimacy and support it needs
to continue on its terror rampage. We must become the “monkey
wrench” in the works of government and in American life, in
general. We begin by overwhelming the Congress with our
righteous anger against governmental plans to unleash hell on
All it will
take to do this is a unified signal from the people that we will
no longer silently abide its immoral actions. The Congressional
parasites who feed at the public trough fear a non-complacent
electorate, a united people committed to reclaiming our rightful
positions as “watchdogs” of government.
All we have
to do to sway a chicken hawk Congress is to convince them that
we are now awake. We must focus our antiwar efforts to disrupt
the aggression against Pakistan. It is time to join with the
democratic antiwar resistance forces in Pakistan, to put an end
to the American empire of terror.
evil that we have become!
