US–The Real Global Terror

Sixty-eight years ago this week, the United States wiped out more than 200,000 people when it dropped two atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Tens of thousands more victims were to die over the ensuing years due to slow, painful deaths from cancers and birth defects. 

Yet the US – the only state to have ever used atomic weapons – has never apologized or made any atonement for this singularly horrific crime. Officially, the US justifies it as a legitimate attack during war even though many historical sources show that there was absolutely no military necessity for the bombings. 

Even former president and top military commander Dwight Eisenhower would later go on record as saying that the A-bomb attacks on Japan in August 1945 were completely unnecessary. 

The unleashing of the atomic infernos on mostly civilian populations was simply this: an act of supreme terrorism. It was an act of barbarity callously calculated by the US planners to demonstrate their country’s demonic power to the rest of the world – and the Soviet Union in particular. This premeditated rationale makes it an unpardonable crime of the highest order.

Fast-forward sixty-eight years on, the US government has this week issued a global terror alert, closing down more than 20 diplomatic sites across the world and vacating staff from various countries. Following suit are the British and French governments who have shut their embassies in Yemen on the basis of an unspecified, secret terror alert issued by Washington. 

The rest of the world is thus obliged to believe the word of Washington over this unverifiable warning. 

Of course, it is a propaganda stunt, aimed at renewing the whole fraudulent ‘war on terror’ charade and distracting from recent politically embarrassing developments, such as the vast scope of illegal surveillance against US citizens and the rest of the world; or the increasing public awareness of the collusion between American and Western intelligence and regime-change terrorism in Syria. 

This is the same American political establishment that launched wars on Afghanistan and Iraq on the back of spurious and outright mendacious claims over the alleged 9/11 terror attacks and weapons of mass destruction. 

This is the same government, along with Israel, Britain and France, that secretly claims the Syrian armed forces of President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons – when the hard evidence is that it is actually the US-backed foreign mercenaries who have launched these weapons to kill civilians. 

This week, the US military killed more people in Yemen with its assassination drones under presidential executive orders, just as it has done every week over the past 10 years as it wages covert and overt criminal wars in several countries simultaneously. 

These US-led wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia, Libya and Syria have caused as many as two million, mainly civilian, deaths. 

And yet ludicrously, the US government is putting the world on alert against terrorism. Even more ludicrously, the Western news media are amplifying this warning from the world’s biggest terrorist state as if it is a benign service to international public safety.

In this awful anniversary week of Hiroshima and Nagasaki it is rather astounding that the perpetrator of that genocide is still strutting the globe as if it is God almighty. On a global terrorist offender list, the United States is the paramount offender without compare. 

In a saner world, the US should be a pariah state, shunned and sanctioned, its government leaders past and present locked away for life. 

Perhaps, the world is finally beginning to wake up from the illusory spell that it has been kept under till now, to realize that humanity’s security is threatened not by states such as Iran or North Korea, but by the one whose president is a Nobel Peace laureate. 

The US terror state slaps sanctions on Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Syria, Zimbabwe and others, causing women and children to die from medial and other basic deprivations. But what we should realize is that this is not depraved double standards or hypocrisy. No, such criminality is simply consistent with the actions of American state terrorism.

Iran does not have any nuclear weapons, yet it is being strangled with illegal trade sanctions by the world’s number-one nuclear terrorist – the US – and its rogue partners, Israel, Britain, and France. 

Today, there are some 17,000 total nuclear weapons in the world. About half of them are possessed by the US. The other major holder of such weapons is Russia. 

In Russia’s defense, it would most likely not have this atomic stockpile if it were not for the fact that the US embarked on the Cold War with its act of genocide at Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. 

Stalin knew that that act of terror by US President Truman was aimed at Moscow by way of demarcating the post-war lines of global hegemony. By 1948, the Soviet Union had acquired the A-bomb and the world was then well on the road to mutually assured destruction – in direct consequence of the US original act of nuclear terrorism on Japan. 

Perhaps more frightening than the planet-destroying power of US-held nuclear weapons is the monstrous mentality of the American ruling class that wields them, including its mass media propaganda system. 

In the same week that the world should be mourning the dead of Hiroshima, Nagasaki and many other victims of US state terrorism, we are instead expected to pander to the “terror warnings” of American politicians and their media as if they should be taken seriously and virtuously. 

These American leaders should be in prison, not promulgating to the rest of the world. 

The truly appalling thing is that the world’s number-one terror state is still at large.

    This atrocious bombing of civilian populations is a Judaic created Old Testament behavior. It’s bloody insane and should be condemned outright. Anybody so condoning it should be shamed and shouted out as to keep it from ever happening. Look at the lies we have been told about these wars. Never ending claptrap, lies, obfuscations, manipulations and falsifications. Not only that but let anyone dare speak out in criticism of these lies and they are immediately branded as ‘Non Patriotic’ and Un American’ and of course the well worn ‘Anti Semite’ and ‘jew hater’ canard is rolled out time and again ad nauseum. Why were the Japanese so ill treated even BEFORE this unnecessary and jewish conspired CONflict? Then there’s the fire bombing of Dresden, Berlin and Cologne. It’s time this crap is ended and immediately. The people who have been prosecuted for questioning the lies of the alleged ‘holoc0$t$ should be compensated and apologized to. Time for a course correction and real accounting. The USA is NOT ‘#1’ nor very popular these days.

    “For the past 68 years, most military aggression can be sourced to the US and Israel. Yet, these two originators of wars pretend to be the victims of aggression. It is Israel that has a nuclear arsenal that is illegal, unacknowledged, and unaccountable. It is Washington that has drafted a war plan based on nuclear first strike. The rest of the world is correct to view these two rogue unaccountable governments as direct threats to life on earth,” Paul Craig Robert, former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury for Economic Policy in the Reagan Administration, wrote on July 24, 2013.

    Last year, America’s renowned Jewish scholar, Dr. Noam Chomsky, said that America and Israel are the greatest threats to peace.

    “Like its patron, Israel resorts to violence at will. It persists in illegal settlement in occupied territory, some annexed, all in brazen defiance of international law and the U.N. Security Council. It has repeatedly carried out brutal attacks against Lebanon and the imprisoned people of Gaza, killing tens of thousands without credible pretext,” said Chomsky.

    Okinawa was also unnecessarily attacked in the Spring of 1945, with 150,000 Okinawan civilians, 100,000 Japanese military, and some 12,500 Americans killed.

    Okinawa is some 450kms from the southern tip of Japan, and is a little closer to Taiwan than to Japan.

    All the Americans had to do was to threaten to destroy any of the Japanese ships plying the distance between Okinawa and the southern tip of Japan, which would have cut off supplies to the island.

    Okinawa could then not any longer have been a factor in the war, no continuity of supplies, nor any means of getting to southern Japan to contribute to its defence.

    Obviously it was an option the Americans would have considered, but rejected on the unspoken grounds that the officer class needed to bask in the ‘honours’ of battles won, even if they were unnecessary.

    True also, of all the island hopping leading up to Okinawa, as after the Battle of Midway in June 1942, Japanese naval might was broken.

    None of the rest that later happened was at all necessary, as the Americans could have gone back to boycotting Japan, having earlier goaded Japan into attacking Pearl Harbour, to FDR’s delight.

    But no, the American establishment seems to delight in the gratuitous slaughter of innocents – uniformed or not.

    The cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima had the largest population of Japanese Christians. This made them especially attractive as targets for the demonic jews who created these demonic weapons, which had originally been created to drop on German cities. The bombs were used for two main purposes; the first was to demonstrate to the world that the jew-controlled US had the most powerful weapons in the world and was prepared to use them against anyone, and the second was mere curiosity at what the effect of the bomb would be on cities full of civilians. It had absolutely nothing to do with ending the war. Japan had been defeated long before. America and its jew masters are the source of most of the strife in our world. The jews are responsible for more human suffering and death and cultural and environmental destruction than all people on earth. Unless they, and their despicable puppets in western countries, are stopped there will never be peace or spiritual progress.
