America’s Shame: The Trial of Bradley Manning
Justice is simply the convenience of the stronger
In the “land of the free” exposing war crimes gets you locked up and mentally tortured while the war criminals walk free and sign books. On Feb 23rd 2012 the already unjustly punished Bradley Manning goes through a sham of a trial while the orchestrators of the war on Iraq, an insane “pre-emptive” war against a defenseless oil-rich country that had nothing to do with 9/11 supposedly to “impose democracy” by mass bombing civilian areas, depriving a metropolis of water, littering the country with cluster bombs that cut people to shreds, using depleted uranium ensuring birth defects for years to come, using white phosphorus that burns through bone, systematically massacring whole populations such as in Fallujah and leaving over 1,000,000 people dead, walk free.
For war is hell and those who institute it are criminals. Were there even anything to say for it, it should not be said; for its spiritual disasters far outweigh any of its advantages
– Seigfried Sassoon
Explain to me again “pre-emptive war” and “imposed democracy” and American justice. So how was the American public rendered mute and sold lies?
Read a report on America’s role in Iraq at http://www.independent.co.uk/opinion/commentators/fisk/robert-fisk-the-shaming-of-america-2115111.html from a journalist with a level of truth I have not seen in the mainstream American media for many a year because Robert Fisk is a British journalist and is not a victim of the cultural and corporate silencing of real journalism that is the norm here in the U.S.
Learn how long the media has been used to sell propaganda and lies http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kw77FJNL8dU and be warned that war really is not pretty or glorious. The American public has been deprived of the truth for far too long.
America has not faced up to the manipulation of the public in recent years. No one has been brought to task for selling lies. Speak out for Bradley Manning for the sake of truth and to support a whistle blower brave enough who expose war crimes. Find out how to help at http://www.bradleymanning.org/ and ymlp.com/zdIWVr .
Remaining silent makes us part of the crime. Manning has been locked up too long and so has the truth.
It’s time to set both free.
