While Poverty Soars, Trillions Spent On Wars In Iraq And Afghanistan Wasted While The Amerikkkan People Are Lied To

Millions of Americans know poverty only too well and yet there are, presumably, states where poverty is more problematic than others. I am quite sure that many would beg to differ.

15 states where poverty is worse than you might think

Developed in 1963, the official poverty rate is based on pre-tax income thresholds related to the cost of a minimum food diet and the number of individuals who depend on that income.
That is unbelievable! The ‘official poverty’ rate based on pre-tax? What the hell??!!! After deductions is what tells the true story, not some before taxes bullshit. None of my paychecks have ever looked good before or after taxes and other deductions and what was there to show for those taxes? Wars! Wars and more wars!
And so we come to this!

Confidential documents reveal U.S. officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan

Senior U.S. officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan throughout the 18-year campaign, making rosy pronouncements they knew to be false and hiding unmistakable evidence the war had become unwinnable.

“We were devoid of a fundamental understanding of Afghanistan — we didn’t know what we were doing,” Douglas Lute, a three-star Army general who served as the White House’s Afghan war czar during the Bush and Obama administrations, told government interviewers in 2015. He added: “What are we trying to do here? We didn’t have the foggiest notion of what we were undertaking.”

What was the pretext for the war in Afghanistan?

The United States invasion of Afghanistan occurred after the September 11 attacks in late 2001, supported by close US allies. The conflict is also known as the US war in Afghanistan. Its public aims were to dismantle al-Qaeda, and to deny it a safe base of operations in Afghanistan by removing the Taliban from power.

Again, America cannot win a war! It does not matter how much military equipment is sent to a warzone, the fact should be clear to ALL by now, that America’s military ain’t shit! And if you don’t believe that, then keep reading.

“If the American people knew the magnitude of this dysfunction . . . 2,400 lives lost,” Lute added, blaming the deaths of U.S. military personnel on bureaucratic breakdowns among Congress, the Pentagon and the State Department. “Who will say this was in vain?”

Since 2001, more than 775,000 U.S. troops have deployed to Afghanistan, many repeatedly. Of those, 2,300 died there and 20,589 were wounded in action, according to Defense Department figures.

“If the American people knew of the magnitude of this dysfunction…2,400 lives lost.” And for what???!!!

The sad part is that Americans are so far removed from wars that we just don’t care. We don’t care that supposedly, healthy specimens of individuals were suited up and sent overseas to fight who or whom and how and why? No one had a clue. And it was most definitely in vain that over 2,400 lost their lives and my guess would be that the numbers are even higher since it is quite obvious that we cannot believe one lying word out of the mouths of our politicians aka warmongers and war hawks and those would include BARACK OBAMA, GEORGE W. BUSH, GEORGE H.W. BUSH and the current reigning lunatic-in-chief, DONALD TRUMP.

Thousands upon thousands of Americans who suited up and who were sent to war zones, made it back and are now wounded and are trying to receive the dubious services of the Veterans Administration and we all know that ANY services received from the Veterans Administration is a joke; just a not so very funny joke since it has been reported that those wounded soldiers who made it back from overseas deployment and who had damn near lost their minds and were suicidal were put on hold by the Veterans Administration when they called seeking help.

“VA Suicide Hotline! Hold Please!”

Some workers handle only one to five calls each day and leave before their shifts end even though phone lines have gotten busier, the emails say. As a result, 35% to 50% of the calls roll over to back-up centers where workers have less training to deal with the emotional problems of former service members.

In February, an Inspector General investigation revealed that some of the in-coming calls early last year had rolled over to back-up centers and gone to voicemail.

And surprise! Surprise! The original article was taken down and cannot be found online. Go figure! Can’t have the dirty secrets bandied about that America couldn’t give two flying turds about those whom we absentmindedly “Thank for their service.” What the hell does that do for someone who supposedly “put their life on the line” for this worthless ass shithole? Can it feed them? Can it house them? Can it give them the medical/psychological care they need? Can it pay their fucking bills?

But to know that it was ALL for nothing is what the troops who were sent over to Afghanistan are saying. There was no plan. There was no blueprint. There was no exit strategy. We were fed bald-faced lies by ALL presidents that had anything to do with the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and so that also means that whatever we have been told about Libya, Syria, Yemen are also lies, lies, lies and damn lies! Trump even supposedly dropped the MOAB(Mother of all bombs) in Afghanistan and what the fuck did that do? Not a goddamn thing but kill two Afghan camel herders and take money from social programs that are sorely needed seeing as how we are experiencing poverty that’s worse than what was experienced during the first Great Depression because make no mistake, we are in a Worse Depression what with the emergence of Third World diseases in this so-called ‘First World’ nation whereas abject poverty and opulence sit side by side, where tent cities are right in the midst of new construction for luxury high rise condos in Los Angeles, but over in Las Vegas, the homeless are living in tunnels. Coming into Chicago, all you see are tents lined up; endless rows of tents. The same in Baltimore and in any and every city in Amerikkka.

George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump — and their military commanders have been unable to deliver on their promises to prevail in Afghanistan. U.S. officials acknowledged that their warfighting strategies were fatally flawed and that Washington wasted enormous sums of money trying to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation. 

What? Wanted “to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation?” So that they could what? Open a Starbucks? Open a Walmart? Open a Popeye’s Chicken shack? Open a Target? Are they fucking serious? This shithole is collapsing what with an infrastructure that is so damn old that bridges are collapsing, pipes that run water to homes are in pieces. Sinkholes are swallowing up blocks of cars. Entire cities look like war zones. Just go to damn near every state and you’ll find rows of abandoned, falling down buildings, downtown areas that have been abandoned; just row upon row of dilapidated buildings and those assholes wanted “to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation?” The Amerikkkan people are stupid as hell. There you sit with your dumb, fat ass glued to a chair while staring down at a phone that is your whole life while your paycheck is being deducted for shit because “attempting to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation” is not why we are paying taxes. That is not why we have payroll deductions. And yet, all we hear from so-called politicians is that we have no fucking money to help our own citizens who are sitting all up in tents trying to cure their typhus and hookworm. Seriously??!!! What.the.fuck.

“What did we get for this $1 trillion effort? Was it worth $1 trillion?” Jeffrey Eggers, a retired Navy SEAL and White House staffer for Bush and Obama, told government interviewers. He added, “After the killing of Osama bin Laden, I said that Osama was probably laughing in his watery grave considering how much we have spent on Afghanistan.”

Yeah! What did we get for over $1 trillion? And we cannot even believe the bullshit that the U.S. government put out about Osama bin Laden since I read that the man had long since died from kidney failure long before Seal Team 6 arrived on the scene. If Osama bin Laden was deep sixed, then I’ve got a bridge for sale in London.

Keep believing the bullshit! Keep buying the lies and you will continue to look around for somewhere to put up a tent and then find yourself locked up thanks to vagrancy laws being put on the books in every city in this fucking shithole because they got nothing but wars and wars and they don’t even have a clue why the fuck there is a war and what to do in a war or how to exit a war of choice. If veterans cannot even get housed and are dying on the streets, what the hell do you think is going to happen to the rest of us? But go right ahead with your head glued to that phone. I hope your tent comes with a USB port and some electricity. Otherwise, the jail has electricity, but you won’t get to keep your phone while you’re cooling your heels in there after having been swept up in a homeless tent city raid.

Meanwhile, your government has some more lies to tell you about why we are at war in Afghanistan and why U.S. troops are still over in Iraq. By all means, keep believing the shit they spout because you love being lied to.

And so I will leave you with a little poem I wrote for the wannabe soldiers.

War Is Always Such A Blessing!

War is always such a blessing
It never is distressing or depressing.
I know all too well that this is true.
War has been good for me and you.

You proudly give your lives up for the rich.
For us, life never is a bitch.
In a blaze of glory, you go out.
And really, that’s what it’s all about.

The drone operators are so brave
as they send little children to their grave.
Since the world has become our battleground,
the drums of war make a lovely, throbbing sound.

Teach your sons and your daughters about their duty.
And one day, when they are dead, we’ll make a movie.
It will honor their brave and noble deeds.
The wounded, we shall see to all their needs.

Through war, we bring peace unto this earth.
And though you break out in dubious peals of mirth,
the last laugh will always be on you,
for none of what is written is ever true.

When we put a lethal weapon in your hand,
and send you to die in a foreign land,
your life means nothing, you should know,
but you never give pause, you just go.

War is not only just a blessing,
to warmongers, it is also quite refreshing,
that you are so willingly prostituted,
and it’s all because you are just too stupid,
to understand that if it were not for you,
no drone could ever strike on cue!

I don’t know why I wrote that poem because you useless, brain dead Amerikkkans will NEVER take what I wrote to heart! More’s the pity and I pity the world!

 

“We Thank You For Your Service And Now Here Are Your Deportation Papers! Git!”

I have been saying over and over again to these foreigners who come here, that they are never more than one foot out the door, if and when this government says so. And it matters not if they so-called “served this worthless ass shithole.

Marine combat veteran who served in Iraq deported to El Salvador

“They basically snuck him out in the middle of the night,” one of the lawyers assisting with the case said.

A Marine combat veteran whose supporters were seeking a pardon from the governor of California was suddenly deported to El Salvador this week, according to advocates and immigration authorities.

Jose Segovia Benitez, 38, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1999-2004 and was deployed to Iraq, was deported to El Salvador on Wednesday, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Jose Segovia Benitez had a criminal record and according to him, he only became a criminal AFTER having signed up to kill people over in Iraq who’d done not a goddamn thing to him, personally. You see, his claim is that he suffered from PTSD(Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) due to having ‘served in the military’ and was stationed in Iraq and that after his stint in the military, he took to alcohol to cope and soon found himself committing felonies, left and right. What he must have failed to realize is that a condition of him remaining a citizen of this fucked up shithole was that he should be a ‘law abiding’ citizen and not a felon. He became a felon and so his citizenship was revoked, pronto, despite his “service to this country” in killing people in foreign lands even though those particular ‘felonies’ were condoned and co-signed by the U.S. government. If he was engaging in felonies that were considered sanctioned by this fucked up ass, hypocritical U.S. government, Benitez would still be sitting over here in this fucking shithole. But that’s not what he was doing. Some of his convictions include corporal injury to a spouse, for which he received an eight-year sentence, assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment, narcotics possession, conspiracy to commit a crime and driving under the influence. Benitez’s lawyers claim that he is very remorseful over having committed these crimes but that he was “not in his right mind” when he was committing the crimes which caused him to cease to be a law abiding citizen and turned him into a felon who then became eligible for deportation which is what happened; he was deported. His claim is that he would not have become a criminal if it had not been for the fact that he signed on the dotted line to kill people over in Iraq for the United States government and so that right there should be grounds for the dismissal of his deportation papers. All’s well that ends well. Uh…no..not according to the U.S. government. It is on their terms and their terms only and then your ass is grass.

Also, Mr. Benitez was so patriotic, that he had tattooed on his rib cage a huge depiction of the Statue of Liberty and across one arm, there was a tattoo; “USMC,” which he says will make him a target for gangs in El Salvador. What Mr Benitez failed to understand is that this shithole that granted him citizenship couldn’t give a rat’s ass for what happened to his ass after he left the military and certainly no one is moaning and wailing and gnashing their teeth at the Pentagon over the potential plight of Mr. Benitez in El Salvador. As far as they are concerned, any dealings they had with Mr. Benitez ended when he received his military discharge papers.

Those south of the border, who come here, promptly think that they are just as white and with just as many rights as the whites have given themselves in this shithole, but when they step out-of-line, they find out, quick, fast and in a goddamn hurry that their ass ain’t so fucking white because back to El Salvador, Columbia, Honduras, Mexico and Guatemala, your ass will go! You don’t have any fucking rights either, Latinos, Hispanics or whatever the hell you call yourselves. And American descendants of slaves are sitting somewhere wondering why you debased shits shut the fuck up and pretend that you are deaf mutes when you come over here and don’t take up for our Black asses. It is because you know that you are here on sufferance. If the whites look in your direction, you damn near jump out of your skin in fear that they will deport your asses back from whence you came. You would no more speak out against the shit that’s being visited on American descendants of slaves than you would cut off your right arm.

The whites have every damn body over here on lock down and don’t we all fucking know this. Just you ask Jose Segovia Benitez. Oh, that’s right. You can’t. He was deported back to El Salvador, was imprisoned there for a short time and then released. What he is doing now, who the fuck knows and who really gives a shit? As far as the U.S. government via the military is concerned, Mr Benitez is no disabled veteran who is qualified to seek the dubious services of the Veterans Administration. Mr. Benitez is just another worthless, deported felon who was here, illegally and who got what he deserved because he should have been able to deal with the consequences of a military deployment to a war zone. And so now, along with having been deployed, Mr. Benitez has been deported. Deployed? Deported? Shit happens. But that shit has consequences depending on whether it was a military deployment or deportation. I wonder, in hindsight, would Mr. Benitez still have gone and gotten himself deployed to a war zone since his claim is that that deployment is what caused him to lose his mind and subsequently ‘forced’ him to engage in criminal conduct which led to his deportation? We may never know and I don’t even care because it is my belief that Mr. Benitez got what he deserved. Nothing good ever comes from war. And I am quite sure that Mr. Benitez does not think that getting himself deported back to El Salvador with a huge depiction of the Statue of Liberty on his torso and ‘USMC’ tattooed on one arm was a good thing, especially when he encounters gang members who absolutely hate and detest everything that this shithole stands for and with good reason.

To ALL U.S. Military Whores, Eat Shit!

fuckveteransday

 

I had to take a short break from Communing With Nature just to celebrate Veterans Day, MY way! And I am not going to be nice about it like Frankie! I am not going to croon to you some nice and cozy, feel good song. I intend to blast your ass and for those of you that have read anything that I’ve written about America’s military whores, then you know that I don’t hold back.

So, we are all set to celebrate Veterans Day, eh? We are going to thank all the veterans that have gone all around the world, fucking innocent people up. Yes indeed, let me thank you for making the warmongers laugh all the way to the goddamn bank. Let me thank you for making refugees out of innocent women and children. Let me thank you for killing innocent people in my name while I paid your goddamn bills with my tax dollars. Yeah, you goddamn sons-of-bitches, I want to thank you by kicking your worthless anus from here to Uranus. I would love to kick the goddamn shit out of each and every one of you, including the military whores that are still at it to this very day.

According to all weather reports, it is going to rain like hell here in the Midwest on Veterans Day, but since I want to show my gratitude and ‘love’ for the nasty ass fucking shits that strut their wide-open asshole all up and down a pothole filled street in this shithole called America, just a’grinning and a’smiling because they killed innocent people in foreign lands, I am going to cook out on the grill. For once, I am going to actually use ‘meat’ or whatever the hell is passing for ‘meat’ these days. I am going to put some goddamn hotdogs on the grill and light ’em up! I am going to burn those goddamn sons-of-bitches to a motherfucking crisp and then I am going to go into town and feed the hungry veterans because I know you’re out there! Obama couldn’t give a shit for you lousy assholes and you fucking know it, but you sign the fuck up anyway. That is why your ass is homeless, hungry and fucked up because after you’re done killing and your mind is now, a battleground, why you is goddamn useless. So, I’m going to do my ‘patriotic’ duty and feed you motherfuckers. See how kind and thoughtful and considerate I is. Now, don’t mind my language ’cause I’m from the south and we’ze unedumacated and all, doncha know. But nevertheless, I know how to burn a dog in celebration of Veterans Day!

Next, I am going to head to the nearest parade and wave my ISIS flag back and forth with gusto! I am going to hold my sign up that says, “The Veterans Administration Deserves An A+ rating!” Wanna know why I am going to give the Veterans Administration such a high rating? Because its doing such a fine job in taking care of you folks. Its doing a terrific job in making sure that you wait in long ass lines to receive care for your post traumatic stress disorder. Its making sure that you need to get on a commercial with cap in hand and beg me for some help because you are fucked up and it is all due to you signing the fuck up to fuck some innocent people up. Yep! Those folks at the Veterans Administration are doing a real good job and they deserve a ‘thank you’ from me! I appreciate ALL that they do in making sure that you worthless ass military whores stay fucked up! You deserve to be fucked up because nobody asked you to sign on the dotted line and protect me from a goddamn thing. If I need protecting, I’ll do it my goddamn self. The world needs protection from YOU filthy ass motherfuckers and now, you’re somewhere trying to look all pitiful and hopeless on commercials for Wounded Warriors and Disabled Vets. Your ass ain’t pitiful. You’re just stupid and I don’t feel sorry for stupid, nor do I help stupid. You stupid military whores would be on your own, if it was left up to me! I have already stated that I begrudge you motherfuckers, a slice of moldy bread and I still mean that! Don’t think I do? Stop by my house begging for some assistance and see just what the fuck you get for your efforts. Yeah! Come by MY way! I wish you whores would!

So, yes, this is indeed my glorious honoring of you evil, depraved, vile rejects from hell! Need some goddamn help? You sure as hell do! But at least for one day, I am going to feed you some burnt up hotdogs! So, BON APPÉTIT, you subhuman filthy ass shits! Oh, and Happy fucking Veterans Day! And now, I’m off to commune with nature, but I will make sure to stop long enough to burn you some goddamn hotdogs on Veterans Day! Let it never be said that I didn’t do my motherfucking ‘patriotic’ duty and feed our warrior heroes! Goddamn, I gagged on that big ass lie!

This Is How I Truly Feel About The U.S. Military!

us military whores

I had originally posted this as a comment but as strongly as I feel about this, I decided that it needs a blog unto itself.

While you are reading it, I hope that you can feel the disdain that I have for you. I hope that you can sense the contempt that I have for you. I hope that you realize that you are a piece of nasty, stinking, vile ass shit and that you mean less than dirt to me. You think that what you do is honorable. It’s not and I cannot stress this enough! How can “kill by drone” ever be considered honorable? How can killing people who have inferior weapons to yours be an honorable thing to do? How can killing people while you are in THEIR country be considered, honorable? You are not fighting a foreign enemy on American soil and so what business is it of yours as to what goes on in any other country? Why are you in someone else’s country bringing destruction, maiming and death to the country and to its people? You think that there is ‘honor’ in that? Who are you shitting? Yourself? Well, I’m here to enlighten you. You are just a military whore and if you’ve ever read anything from me, then you know that I’ve called you military motherfuckers, useless military whores many times over and I will continue to do so. But I did promise to post a comment of mine and without further ado, read this eloquently worded comment and remember, I mean every goddamn word of it!

They are not heroes! They are military whores! They bend over and get fucked and if they make it back, they decide to bend over again and then if they come back fucked up after having been fucked, well now, let’s put them on a commercial since the Veterans Administration said to them, “Fuck you and get at the end of that non-existent line!” And what does Obama do? Oh, he goes to a military base and salutes his military whores and promises them the moon all the while laughing at their goddamn stupidity and blind obedience. There is always going to be a ‘conflict’ and what a nice, pretty word for war, conflict is, because as long as there are dumb motherfuckers that sign up, ‘conflicts’ will never cease. War will never cease.

We say we don’t like or want war? Well fucking prove it! Stop signing the fuck up! We don’t want to keep hearing and seeing your sob stories about how sorry you are that you fucked people up for no reason. We are sick and tired of your attempts to gain our sympathy when you had no reason to sign up in the first damn place. No one is forcing you to sign up. That is all on YOU! No one is to blame for your nightmares and your post traumatic stress and for your depression but YOU! Take some responsibility for what YOU chose to do! I don’t owe you a wheelchair! I don’t owe you a goddamn thing because I didn’t ask you to fucking ‘keep me safe’! Keep me safe from who? What enemy of mine are you keeping me safe from? America IS the goddamn enemy and you are America’s goddamn willing tool of war! I begrudge you motherfuckers, a slice of moldy bread and I truly mean that!

Now, come on up in here and try my non-existent patience with some patriotic bullshit and see just what the fuck you get for your efforts, you goddamn worthless ass military whores!

So, when you military whores bring your filthy ass eyes all up in here thinking that you are going to read about some whores that are available for you to bend them over and fuck, think again. This is about you, you nasty whores and how you yourselves bend over and get fucked by the likes of Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Barack Obama, Colin Powell, John McCain and all the other filthy warmongers and war hawks that you whore yourselves out for.

And if you bring your whorish ass back from deployment, I am sure that it goes without saying that I won’t be standing on the sidelines of a parade watching you nasty ass whores strut your wide open asshole all up and down a pothole filled street in this shithole called America. Don’t even think that I am one of the suckers that watch a commercial about ‘Wounded Warriors’ and open my checkbook to send you a goddamn penny. Why should I throw good money after bad? I am already paying for you whores to kill innocent people. I am paying for your goddamn health care. I am paying for the goddamn food that you eat. Yeah, think for one goddamn second that I’m going to hand some more money over to you because you’re now a ‘Disabled Vet’ and the Veterans Administration told you to “Piss off!” Like I’m going to continue to fucking help you? Never fucking think it!

Here Comes A ‘Wounded Warrior’

wounded warrior

Here comes a ‘wounded warrior’,
in a wheelchair, out-of-date.
It’s not even battery-powered.
Both are in a sorry state.

You’ll get no sympathy from me,
since you chose the path to war.
And now, I should worry about you?
Not likely, you worn out whore!

Did you hear the cries of your victims
before you gunned them down in Iraq?
When did the body of another’s child,
cause you to take just one step back?

Was the money really worth it,
now that your legs and arms are gone?
There you sit, looking all helpless
and I just stare at you and yawn.

You’re not worth a damn to me
since you chose a job to kill.
Accept your fucked up life,
and swallow that bitter pill.

Every single damn time that I get a phone call from some asshole asking for donations for ‘wounded warriors’ and ‘disabled vets’, they get cussed the fuck out! Let their goddamn commander-in-chief take care of ’em. Let the fucking Veterans Administration take care of ’em. You’ll get no fucking sympathy from me! You whores chose to fight rich fucks wars, now deal with the consequences!

Happy Veterans Day!

images

On this day, we thank our veterans,
by making them wait in line,
to get medical attention.
And to each, a number we’ll assign.

We always strive to remember,
the homeless vets of course.
Just look at how we treat them,
and we don’t even show remorse.

They know how much we love them.
We show them every day.
There is nothing they are lacking.
They even have a holiday.

What difference does it make
if some are homeless, sick and scarred?
They’re still our wounded warriors
that we hold in high regard.

So many veterans are homeless, mentally ill, scarred for life and getting a raw deal from the Veterans Administration but I am sure that it does their heart good to know that we’ve designated a day to honor them. So, let the pretentiousness and the worthless tributes begin. They don’t fucking need a worthless celebratory day. They have real needs that aren’t being met and never will be by focusing on a day instead of focusing on their problems and fixing them. Because if Veterans Day was doing that, we’d not be hearing of how many veterans commit suicide each day. We just never get it, do we? Never mind, the question was rhetorical.

Iraq:Round III

...and a child says, "Get the hell out!"
…and a child says, “Get the hell out!”

Wow! We’ve been fucking up Iraq since the Gulf War

(2 August 1990 – 28 February 1991),
for operations leading to the build up of troops and defense of Saudi Arabia and Operation Desert Storm (17 January 1991 – 28 February 1991) was a war waged by coalition forces from 34 nations led by the United States against Iraq in response to Iraq’s invasion and annexation of Kuwait.

Thanks to George H. W. Bush, and coalition forces, we swept through and got shit done right and proper like. We fucking knew there’d be no need to EVER go back to Iraq ’cause it was just too easy the first time. But wait! What the fuck happened? Were we too cocky? Did Iraq attack the U.S. over Operation Desert Storm? Did we fucking go back and strike Iraq for legitimate reasons? What the hell happened? I thought Iraq was soundly defeated and sanctioned to pieces.

“The UN Security Council imposed comprehensive economic sanctions against Iraq on August 6, 1990, just after the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. When the coalition war had ousted Iraq from Kuwait the following year, the Council did not lift the sanctions, keeping them in place as leverage to press for Iraqi disarmament and other goals. The sanctions remained in place thereafter, despite a harsh impact on innocent Iraqi civilians and an evident lack of pressure on Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. A UN “Oil-for-Food Programme,” started in late 1997, offered some relief to Iraqis, but the humanitarian crisis continued.

The US and UK governments always made it clear that they would block any lifting or serious reforming of sanctions as long as Hussein remained in power. After more than twelve years of sanctions had passed, the US and the UK made war on Iraq again in March, 2003, sweeping away Hussein’s government. Soon after, Washington called for and obtained the lifting of sanctions, a step that gave the US occupation authority full control over Iraq’s oil sales and oil industry. This section covers a wide range of sanction issues, including the humanitarian impact, the Oil-for-Food Programme, criticisms of the sanctions and the debate that took place about their termination.”

Seriously? And we are supposed to be the ‘good guys’. I fucking find that hard to believe! The Americans and the British knew who would be adversely impacted by the sanctions. Both knew that sanctions would have a devastating impact on innocent Iraqis, especially children and they didn’t bat a goddamn eye over imposing them. We are worse than some filthy, foul ass shits. The deepest pit of hell would be considered a 5-star resort to the evil motherfuckers that initiated such a horror on innocent people! And as if that wasn’t bad enough, Iraq has to get attacked again over some bullshit! Operation Iraqi Freedom, now ain’t that a bitch!

Bush said he invaded Iraq “to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction, to end Saddam Hussein’s support for terrorism, and to free the Iraqi people.” And I say, “Bullshit!!”

“Defense of the American people is primary among the goals and objectives of U.S. actions in Iraq,” Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said. Again, I say, “Bullshit!!”

Those murdering bastards lied through their teeth and many of us knew it but we were considered to be unpatriotic for denouncing outright murder against innocent people who had suffered enough but who were about to get the hell that only America can unleash on them, unleashed. The people of Iraq were dirt poor, but the country was oil rich and we fucking need that goddamn oil, fucking oil gluts that we are! So, bring on the lies and the propaganda and the hype of freeing the Iraqi people from their evil dictator. They’ll thank us, they will. They want OUR brand of democracy shoved down their throats and it don’t really matter what the hell they want. They want what we want them to want and that’s the fucking way it’s gonna be. We’ll see to that. Come hell or high water. We’ll get those Iraqi people in line with OUR way of thinking. Now give ’em hell and they won’t know what hit ’em. It’s Operation Iraqi Freedom time! The American people are sheep, so fucking easily led, just shove patriotism down their oh so willing throats and we can get away with murder and make money, hand over fist while doing it. Of course, we’ll have those American sheeple in debt up past their eyeballs once we’ve thrown a trillion dollars in Iraq, all unfunded of course. Why, we’ll just print some more money. Who the fuck’ll notice and meanwhile Bush’s cronies and Dick Cheney’s cronies made billions. And the American sheeple? Those suckers ate up the lies and ran with them, just like the swine told them to do. Fucking stupid, clueless, useless motherfuckers that they are!

But goddamn, I digress! American forces and British forces and a couple of Australians said, “bombs away in Iraq! Bomb them into freedom! They want democracy and goddamn it that’s what they’re gonna get if we have to kill over a million Iraqis to get it done. It’ll all be worth it in the end!”

So, Iraq was bombed to smithereens, Saddam Hussein was captured and killed. American contractors saturated Iraq and began making billions. U.S. soldiers were used to train Iraqi security forces because somebody had better be protecting that goddamn oil, Black Gold, Iraq’s Prime. And so now we come to this, “Iraq appears on the brink of a violent ethno-sectarian divide between Sunnis, Shi’ite and Kurds that poses the greatest security risk that the country, and the region, has seen since the U.S. invaded in 2003.”

“The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, whose name alone indicates the breadth of its goals, has gained control of an estimated 10 percent of Iraq’s territory since its lightning strike on the northern city of Mosul earlier this week. The group’s leaders indicate that they want nothing less than complete domination of Iraq and the eradication of its Shi’ite majority, which they deem apostates. In a direct threat to Shi’ites, ISIS spokesman Abu Mohamad al-Adnani urged his fighters in a radio address on Thursday to march on the “filth-ridden” Shi’ite-city of Karbala and on “Najaf, the city of polytheism” — and home to Shi’ism’s major center of learning.”

Did the U.S. really think that it could stop centuries of hate between the different sectarian groups that has now spiralled out of control and since there is no dictator there to squash one group’s attempts to eradicate another, this violence will escalate to an all out civil war?

What is going down in Iraq is not much different from what went down in America. America erupted into civil war, pitting one group against another, states seceded from the union. One group squashed the other, the slaves were supposedly freed only to have one form of slavery exchanged for another. This group, that group, the other group. A group over here, a group over there, what the fuck? So, how then can we invade another country and then proceed to attempt to show them the way, the truth and the light towards a better tomorrow for everyone when they’ve got a group here, a group there, everywhere a group, group and each group wants to dominate the other? Hypocrisy becomes no one and most definitely NOT an entire nation, but America is synonymous with hypocrisy, always has been and always will be.

So now, we’re back in Iraq. Why? What could we possibly accomplish now that we’ve thus far been unable to accomplish? Every single time the U.S. has by way of military intervention, invaded Iraq; only death, destruction, corruption, hatred, blame and terrorism has been the outcome. The so-called militant groups that have taken over key cities have the use of weapons and vehicles because the U.S. left them behind for the Iraqi security forces to use to enforce stability in Iraq. Gotta take care of that goddamn oil! And capitalism needs expansion. We have armed the ‘rebels’ and made a bad situation, worse. American tax dollars are funding the chaos that is now ongoing in Iraq. Once again, we have the blood of an entire country on our hands and everywhere you turn, veterans are bemoaning their sacrifice, wondering why the hell they were ever there. You enlisted, now get over it. You contributed to that shit and now it’s not about you. You made a choice to enlist and get shipped out so don’t now turn around and wail and whine about your “in vain sacrifice.” It just doesn’t cut any ice now. Shut up about it and go seek help at the VA or better yet, call Obama so that he can tell you to “go fuck yourself!” And remember,

O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev’ry gain divine!

O Beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam,
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

So, fucking pray to God to shed his grace on thee; oh hero, oh patriot, oh liberator! Thanks to America, ain’t every goddamn body feeling free from sea to fucked up sea??!!! Like hell!

Update: The sectarian violence might not be real. It may indeed be a fabrication, another lie. According to one of my readers, the different sects have been getting along in Iraq for centuries unlike what has been stated by me in this essay. So hell! I don’t fucking know what’s real anymore. I’m going to have to pinch my own ass to make sure its real and not a hologram, goddamn! Shall we read between the lies and propaganda especially since we already know that big lies have been spread about Iraq before and they certainly have no problem continuing down that road. But whatever is going down in Iraq, the U.S. has no fucking business there and doing nothing but contributing to the problem if not outright causing it, much like the situation in Ukraine. We ALL know who’s behind that shit stirring and it ain’t as if we’ve got all roses and sunshine in this shithole called, America. We just can’t mind our own goddamn business much to the detriment of whose business it is we are minding at the moment. The people of Iraq, AGAIN, have my sincere sympathy because it seems that America ain’t hardly finished fucking with Iraq. The only thing America wants to do is to liberate Iraq from its oil supplies and shove capitalism down its throat! And if Iraq is shoving back against that shit, I say, “more power to them!”
