In the repost I did from Philosophy of Metrics on March 22nd, the subject of war crimes and Western tribunals was touched upon. The specific references in the article that related to the title were:

Now that the international financial interests no longer need the American power which they helped create, the US military and financial power which dominated and manipulated the world for 70 years will be left to fend for itself. Like previous empires and governments, they will be left holding the bag and responsibility for decades of war and genocide. The recent international condemnation of everything from the dropping of atomic bombs on Japan, to the massacres and fragmentation of borders and populations, as represented in the humanitarian disasters in the Middle East, Ukraine, Bosnia, Libya, Vietnam, Palestine, and many more, will be addressed with an international tribunal process.

There are those of us in the western world who have stood our ground on the wrongs that have been committed by America and it’s closes partners. Many of us were ostracized from our friends and family for bringing attention to the lack of humanity which our governments represented. However, the coming western tribunals will ensure that the covert manipulators are once again never discovered. America will be the new Napoleon and Hitler.

In the comments on PoM some pressure was applied towards JC to elaborate on his position. He graciously accepted that the respectful push-back from his readers was justified and provided an update to that article:

As a gesture of fellowship amongst the group, here are a list of links supporting the probability of some sort of tribunal process against the west. The momentum and political mandate for such action is slowly growing around the world. With the move away from USD geopolitical and economic hegemony will come the inability of American interests to veto such actions taken against them for war crimes committed over the last 7 decades. How the process will look, and who will be held responsible can not be determined, but once the required leverage is achieved, you can bet a formal process will be enacted against America for reparations.

Israel to Finally Face ICC Over War Crimes in Gaza

ICC Should Prosecute ISIS for Iraq Genocide

Sudan’s President Claims CIA and Mossad Behind ISIS

Did the Senate Just Open Up the US to ICC Prosecution

Prosecuting American War Crimes

This list can go on for a very long time. If any readers question the validity of what I have presented in this post, I suggest they do there own research and consume the vast amount of information which is beginning to accumulate in regards to war crimes committed by the west and its partners and institutions, such as NATO.

Before closing, I’d like to bring to the attention of all of you the work of Gajendra Singh and his piece titled The Duality of an International Financial, Political, and Legal System – Conferring Impunity on Major War Criminals.

After reading in toto this last article that was cited, I thought it was necessary to present a four part post as the information is daunting and very long, yet compellingly informative and important. I basically had the body of Part I ready 5 days ago, but courtesy of writer’s block couldn’t come up with a prelude.

You really could not make this up for nobody would believe such an argument. But California Democrat Barbara Lee this week introduced  a resolution in the House of Representatives which amazingly claims women will eventually be forced into prostitution in order to obtain life-sustaining food and water for their families because of Global Warming. So why does she fly or drive a car? She should walk barefoot from California to Washington. When she gets there, then immediately turn around. By the time she gets back, her two years will be finished and look how many trees she will save from all the wasted paper for this type of legislation.

HITCHING A RIDE WITH OUR ENEMY

How is it that the bankrupt American Empire has to hitch a ride on the spaceship of our existential enemy – Russia – to get into space? I thought our economic sanctions were destroying Russia. How can they afford to send rockets into space and we can’t? Maybe it’s because we spend our money blowing up camel jockeys in the Middle East.

Guest Post by Paul Craig Roberts

Professor Michel Chossudovsky is the author of many important books. His latest is The Globalization of War: America’s Long War Against Humanity. Chossudovsky shows that Washington has globalized war while the US president is presented as a global peace-maker, complete with the Nobel Peace Prize. Washington has military deployed in 150 countries, has the world divided up into six US military commands and has a global strike plan that includes space operations. Nuclear weapons are part of the global strike plan and have been elevated for use in a pre-emptive first strike, a dangerous departure from their Cold War role.

America’s militarization includes military armament for local police for use against the domestic population and military coercion of sovereign countries in behalf of US economic imperialism.

One consequence is the likelihood of nuclear war. Another consequence is the criminalization of US foreign policy. War crimes are the result. These are not the war crimes of individual rogue actors but war crimes institutionalized in established guidelines and procedures. “What distinguishes the Bush and Obama administrations,” Chossudovsky writes, “is that the concentration camps, targeted assassinations and torture chambers are now openly considered as legitimate forms of intervention, which sustain ‘the global war on terrorism’ and support the spread of ‘Western democracy.’”

Chossudovsky points out that the ability of US citizens to protest and resist the transformation of their country into a militarist police state is limited. Washington and the compliant foundations now fund the dissent movement in order to control it. He quotes Noam Chomsky and Edward S. Herman about manufacturing consent. He lets Paul Kivel describe how funding of dissent by the elite results in the co-option of grassroots community leadership. The same thing is happening to environmental organizations. Black Americans also have lost their leaders to the elite’s money and ability to bestow position and emoluments.

Know your enemy. They know who their enemy is – YOU.

Special forces set to swarm Southwest and operate undetected among civilians in massive military exercise

  • Operation Jade Helm will see 1,200 service members including Green Berets and SEALs and special forces from the Air Force and Marines in July
  • Soldiers armed with blank rounds will operate in and around towns in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado for 8 weeks
  • The so-called Realistic Military Training has some residents fearful the drill is a preparation for martial law

Seven Southwestern states will soon be infiltrated by 1,200 military special ops personnel as part of a controversial domestic military training in which some of the elite soldiers will operate undetected among civilians.

Operation Jade Helm begins in July and will last for eight weeks. Soldiers will operate in and around towns in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado where some of them wil drop from planes while carrying weapons loaded with blanks in what military officials have dubbed Realistic Military Training.

But with residents of the entire states of Texas and Utah dubbed ‘hostile’ for the purposes of the exercises, Jade Helm has some concerned the drills are too realistic.

Hostile: An unclassified military document reveals the states involved in a controversial multi-agency training exercises that will place 1,200 military personnel into 7 Southwest states–with residents of Utah, Texas and part of Southern California designated as ‘hostile’

Special ops: Operation Jade Helm will involve Green Berets and SEALs and special forces from the Air Force and Marines starting in July and lasting 8 weeks

Headlines like Freedom Outpost‘s ‘Operation Jade Helm—military trains for martial law in American South-west’ abound across the Right-leaning blogosphere and Info Wars warns that Jade Helm is simply ‘an effort to test the effectiveness of infiltration techniques’ on the American public.

Tyler Durden's picture

Intended warning or unintended slip? After Alan Greenspan’s confessional admission that

Gold is a currency. It is still, by all evidence, a premier currency. No fiat currency, including the dollar, can match it,”

we found it remarkable that during the Q&A after her speech today that Janet Yellen, when asked about negative rates, admitted that

“cash in not a very convenient store of value,”

seemingly hinting at Bernanke’s helicopter and that there will be no deflation in The US ever…  

Rick Santelli then sums it all up perfectly…

The American Dream – Moonshine and Scam

Infection

When we left you yesterday, we were trying to connect the bloated, cankerous ankles of the US economy to the sugar rush of its post-1971 credit-based money system.

Today, we look at the face of our government. It is older… with more worry lines and wrinkles. But whence cometh that pale and stupid look?

That is also the result of the same advanced diabetic epizootic that has infected American society.

Soft and Mushy

After real money and real savings left the economy circa 1971, GDP growth rates fell. Wages atrophied. And now, for the first time in 35 years, American business deaths outnumber business births. The body economic grew soft and mushy – unable to hold itself erect or to stand on its own two feet. Thenceforth, it needed the crutch of increasing credit.

The new credit-based monetary system meant that Americans had less real wealth. But until 2007, they could still get what they wanted by borrowing. Few noticed that they were borrowing from the company store and becoming slaves to their credit masters.

No one ever figured out how to create gold. So, Washington insiders changed the money system in two steps. In 1968, LBJ asked Congress to end the requirement for the dollar to be backed by gold. And in 1971, “Tricky Dicky” ended the direct convertibility of dollars to gold.
