you can read (extract only):

?WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military on Sunday identified a soldier held on suspicion of a fatal grenade attack on his comrades in Kuwait and military sources said he may have acted out of anger over the war with Iraq

?A 27-year-old captain, Christopher Scott Seifert, was killed and 15 servicemen wounded early on Sunday in the attack on a tented command area at Camp Pennsylvania, the rear base for the 1st Brigade of the 101st Airborne Division.

?George Heath, a spokesman for Fort Campbell in Kentucky, the division's home base, said the suspect had been identified as Army Sgt. Asan Akbar. Heath said the investigation was continuing, indicating that no charges had so far been laid.

?One military source, who did not wish to be identified, said of Akbar: "He's a Muslim, and it seems he was just against the war."?

KILL YOUR OFFICER. US Army Sgt. Asan Akbar is an example !

The Internationale

Arise ye workers [starvelings] from your slumbers
Arise ye prisoners of want
For reason in revolt now thunders
And at last ends the age of cant.
Away with all your superstitions
Servile masses arise, arise
We'll change henceforth [forthwith] the old tradition [conditions]
And spurn the dust to win the prize.

So comrades, come rally
And the last fight let us face
The Internationale unites the human race.
So comrades, come rally
And the last fight let us face
The Internationale unites the human race.

No more deluded by reaction
On tyrants only we'll make war
The soldiers too will take strike action
They'll break ranks and fight no more
And if those cannibals keep trying
To sacrifice us to their pride
They soon shall hear the bullets flying
We'll shoot the generals on our own side.

No saviour from on high delivers
No faith have we in prince or peer
Our own right hand the chains must shiver
Chains of hatred, greed and fear
E'er the thieves will out with their booty [give up their booty]
And give to all a happier lot.
Each [those] at the forge must do their duty
And we'll strike while the iron is hot.

Now, if anyone's working for the FBI/CIA, it's the people posting this kind of shit.


Maybe you have a valid point ("The enemy is anyone who's going to get you killed, no matter what side he's on."-Joseph Heller), but COINTELPRO couldn't ask for a better excuse to monitor and otherwise fuck with this website than blatant advocacy of violence against American military personnel. I'm trying to be friendly here, but come on-even if this is your actual opinion, there are better ways to phrase it that won't threaten the continued utility of one of the most valuable activist tools ever devised.
