Oil for White People! Woohoo, Dead Iraqi Children Now!

By Lloyd Hart

It seems that the corporate press cabal of CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, Regime controlled NPR and just about every major newspaper in America sets policy for press coverage week to week. The first week of war the corporate press played bad cop with the Bush regime looking like they couldn't fight a war in a wet paper bag let alone Iraq and then in the second week of the war, good cop. In the second week the corporate press morphed into the pro war zealot cheerleaders the Bush regime could only have dreamed of when they originally rolled out this diseased product. But a consistent policy through the entire period at all the American networks and major papers from the beginning of this war is that there will be no visual material illustrating any civilian casualties. The dead would be completely omitted and wounded civilians would only be shown in a very limited way in the recovery stage in the sterility of a hospital ward or in the care of a U.S. soldier. I leafed through the weekly's, Time magazine, U.S. News, and Newsweek and literally only found one off in the distance picture of a civilian casualty with a U.S. soldiers standing over the body as if it were going to blow up and one picture of a dead Iraqi soldier as well as one picture of one dead U.S. Marine whose body was covered by a tarp. No messy war going on in Iraq, that's for sure. The overall thrust of every corporate media outlet this last week focused on supporting our troops regardless their crimes against humanity with MSNBC posting photographs of soldiers sent in by their families and talking about liberation of the Iraqi people as if absolutely no one in America knew or could transcend the truth of what is really happening. And of course with a military invasion of every corporate media outlet with so-called retired officers eating up all the airtime and the cult of personality bimbo journalism that has swept across America like locust on crops, the only place the public actually has to go to get some semblance of objectivity in reporting on this war, is the Internet.

After working my ass off all week scanning the Internet for legitimate photographs of Iraqi civilian casualties I was able to put together reasonable catalog on my website  http://dadapop.com which I try to update every day. But the fact still remains that with the American corporate media deciding what the American public can and cannot handle in terms of images coming off the battlefield, the rest of the world outside the United States seems to think it's public is mature enough to handle the site of dead Iraqi children. I know for a fact that every last one of the corporate media outlets in America have been flooded with very angry complaints from their viewers for the lack of objectivity and the general Rah Rah Sis Boom Bah attitude. But after the first Gulf War just as the smart bombs got smarter the boys at the Pentagon somehow convinced the American corporate media to slip between the sheets and go down on the generals.

While watching the Sunday talk shows this week I caught Wolfowitz tap dancing around the question of the U.N.'s role in post War Iraq, stumbling over the Bush regime's scripted line that the U.N. "Has a role to play in Iraq" omitting the key word "central". In other words coming from Condy Rice, Colon Powell and Donald Rumsfeld that there is no role for the U.N. other than to be America's lackey and that is, to distribute to some food, water and medicine and only because the Pentagon has proved to be completely incompetent in that area. All post war reconstruction of Iraq will be administered by the men and the few women and the corporation's most closely associated with this theft of election 2000, period. Hell, I wouldn't be to surprised if Iraq turned out to be the very thing that could bring Enron out of bankruptcy. Wolfowitz was also put on the spot and made to defend the selection of Dr. Ahmed Chalabi, the exiled head of the Iraqi political opposition to represent the Iraqi people in the interim military government the U.S. is already setting up in Iraq. Chalabi apparently burned whole bunch of depositors in his Jordanian bank and split to avoid the old head on the pike scene turning up again in the Iraqi opposition and then in northern Iraq and now installed in Nassireya in southern Iraq with a group of thugs, I mean troops that he has been training in northern Iraq. Just by geographic proximity alone it seems that the Prince of gray area in the White House has made his selection as to who is going to be the top Iraqi dog on U.S. occupation leash. And of course it has been reported by the BBC that Chalabi and the rest of the U.S. hand-picked Iraqi opposition in exile plans to privatize the Iraqi oil patch breaking up the state run oil monopoly allowing the U.S. oil monopoly to take complete control of the global price of oil monopoly. Gee wiz, I would have never guessed.

OK, let's talk about weapons of mass destruction. I could care less how many weapons of mass destruction they find in Iraq. For the simple fact is, it is quite reasonable for any Arab state to seek détente with the psychotic, genocidal, Palestinian murdering Zionists in Israel who possess 300 nuclear weapons of mass destruction. To say that the Arab states don't have a right to possess nuclear-weapons is to say that the Arab states learned nothing from the Cold War. Which was all about the United States and the Soviet Union developing so many weapons of mass destruction (causing the pollution of the entire USSR and the United States with cancer causing agents) that they realized that all scenarios lead to mutually assured destruction and that there was only one way out and that was to sit down and talk. If the Israelis do not give up their nuclear-weapons the United States of America will never shake the title of imperialist hypocrite in the Arab world as well as in the entire world. And of course, that leads to the fact that the U.S. itself since George Bush came to office has backed out of every biological, chemical and nuclear-weapons treaty with the rest of the world. United States stockpiles of biological, chemical and nuclear weapons dwarf any other stockpiles as a whole in the rest of the entire world and the U.S. is not destroying them. In fact, backing out of the ABM treaty with the former Soviet Union and negotiating a deal where the U.S. can store their nuclear warheads intact is clearly a violation of the spirit of the global agreement on the non proliferation of nuclear-weapons. And of course the facts around the discovery of these sarin and mustard gas warheads just outside Baghdad are dubious considering that two U.S. military transport planes landed at the Baghdad airport, the area of discovery, beginning days before the discovery of these WMBs. After all the Bush regime has been caught politically and ethnically cleansing the voter lists in America in order to win elections, a high crime and misdemeanor. And also considering that America law enforcement regularly plants evidence on suspects, the Rampart division of the Los Angeles Police Department grotesque case in point. Another stark fact is that it turns out that Colon Powell was the very first officer at ICOR command center in Vietnam to see the evidence of the My Lai Massacre which he then proceeded to suppress which made his carreer what it is today. So I wouldn't put it past the Bush regime to plant evidence. Regardless of the origins of the weapons of mass destruction found by the hundred and first Airborne the fact still remains that the Iraqis did not use weapons of mass destruction against U.S. forces, Israel or anyone else at any time for that matter without U.S. government approval. And there still is no U.N. Security Council resolution authorizing this illegal war, so get a grip you crazy white people no matter what you dance in front of our eyes or how many Oreo cookies you put up as military spokespeople, just the fact that you went ahead with the invasion side stepping International Law, the UN Security Council and the UN General Assembly is all proof people need that you're crazy white people running out of oil.

So just as all crazy white people that preceded this latest adventure into the heart of Arabia, Alexander the Great, the Romans, the French, the British, the Italians etc. etc.. The crazy white people from America are going to attempt to rule over a people that you might be able sell clothes, hair cuts and cars to but to use as hegemonic slaves for greater plans of ruling the world through controlling the strategic oil supply and therefore controlling the Global Economy? Well you really do have to be a crazy white person to pull it off. The fact is, the brutality that it will take to keep the Iraqi people and the entire Arabian Street at bay while we steal their oil, the one thing that finally got the Crazy White Christians to sit down at the table and talk after centuries of lead poisoned Christian adventures into the Holy Land, will be biblical. But I guess that is just what happens when crazy white people cut themselves off from their cultural mother ship in Europe and continue to try and stick it to the great cultural breast they were forced to flee because fixing the problems in Europe was a great deal harder than killing 30 million Native Americans. After all they were savages and therefore not protected by God. Only in America could a religion be created and written that states clearly in they're text that people with dark skin have fallen from the grace of God and must be shepherded back to God upon which time as they have accepted God back into their life, their skin will turn back to its original white color. I speak of the Mormons of course and there ain't no crazier white people shit then that.

Well actually I'm wrong. There is a crazier idea emanating from America's shores and that would be Tim Lahaye's crazy white man's interpretation of the Book of revelations in a series of books called "Left Behind" which you can find at the million dollar web site  http://leftbehind.com . Tim Lahaye is a co-founder of Jerry Falwell's Moral Majority and with Pat Robertson and Billy Graham they might as well make up the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Together these four men represent the very base and controlling interest in the Republican Party in the United States of America and therefore they have George W. Bush's ear. With the four horsemen pumping their parishioners with the myth and main premise of the Left Behind series, that the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque among the holiest sites in Islam must be destroyed and the third Jewish temple built in order to draw Jesus down from heaven. Upon Jesus's arrival on the earth all the Jews will be informed that they must convert to Christianity or be destroyed by the convenient little Antichrist they have waiting in the wings ready to pounce on those stubborn Jews. Could it be some one is planning another Jewish Holocaust?

What has all this crazy white man stuff got to do with the war in Iraq you ask? Well, according and to these crazy white horsemen of the apocalypse the Antichrist is supposed to come from within Islam and if you hang out long enough with these crazy white men you'll find out that their number one focus these days is the destruction of the entire religion of Islam. In fact, the crazy white people send stealth converters into Islam in attempt to destroy the religion from within cause you can't destroy the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque if that pesky religion Islam is still hanging around. If you remember those young women that the Taliban arrested and then later who got to meet George W. Bush at the White House, well they were stealth converters sponsored by Islam busters associated with the Bob Jones University in South Carolina.

Now you might think that Tim Lahaye and Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson and Billy Graham are fringe wack jobs, they are, but they also represent millions and millions of people in America that organize and vote Republican with the Holy zeal of Christian soldiers invading of the Holy Land. The Left Behind series of books alone have sold over 51 million copies. Couple all that zealotry with the wealth and power of the conservative elites, the so-called fiscal conservatives and their minions within their corporate culture, backed up by the Republican controlled U.S. military and you've got the makings of a shit storm of the likes we haven't seen and since George W. Bush's grandfather Prescott Bush, Henry Ford, Thomas Watson and IBM and basically all conservative elite'sin America backed Hitler. So hold on to your socks kiddies it looks like we're in for another American nightmare, an attempt at global domination.

Oh and by the way, be sure to take your vitamins, homeopathic remedies and Chinese herbs and don't snivel in public cause George W. Bush just gave the authorities the power to arrest anyone even slightly suspected of SARS, you don't even have to have symptoms for them to stick you in the ward with a real SARS patients much the same way they did when the plague hit Europe before they learned to diagnose the sick from the healthy. Meaning that entire families and communities can be arrested and quarantined with the only thing to save you and your family members from dying of SARS is the totally ineffective immune system destroying toxic Pharmaceuticals of Western medicine. I find it very interesting that the power of Bush's executive order to isolate SARS suspects occurred only after a 110 deaths not one of them occurring in the United States and considering the flu season takes down thousands more than that globally every winter. And I don't see Bush racing by executive order to contain the spread of the Ebola outbreak or for that matter the AIDS plague in Africa. Shit, maybe I'm talking too soon.

But I guess I shouldn't be so naive as to expect universal democracy, peace and justice when it comes to the crazy white people but I do have a suggestion. All crazy white people in America, instead of continuing this crazy unconscious act of yearning to be weaned by pigging out on cow's milk all the time should head straight back to Europe and find some human breast milk gestating French, German and Russian momas and get themselves properly breast fed and weaned.
