US war history in 2 minutes: arrest US War Criminals to stop war on Iran

“A mere demarcation on parchment of the constitutional limits (of government) is not a sufficient guard against those encroachments which lead to a tyrannical concentration of all the powers of government in the same hands.” - James Madison, Federalist Paper #48, 1788.

We were all born into a century of total deaths from government violence of over 230 million human beings. After two world wars, the US was the chief author of the treaty that makes war unlawful unless attacked by another nation’s military. As the links below document in conservative and now non-controversial history, current US wars continue a pattern of lie-started and unlawful wars.

Importantly, now, US military and/or law enforcement must arrest the current War Criminals to end this history of murder. If not, it will repeat by mass-murdering Iranians, and more ignorant/gullible US soldiers. The basis of law provides US military and all with Oaths to defend the US Constitution to refuse unlawful orders and act to arrest those who issue them.

US war history brief to put the present in context:

1. The US regularly violated treaties with Native Americans, as well as manipulating their meaning for the purpose of stealing their land.

2. US President Polk lied to Congress to initiate a War of Aggression in Mexico. The result was the US taking 40% of Mexico in 1848. This occurred despite Abraham Lincoln’s crystal-clear explanation as a member of Congress that the Adams-Onis Treaty placed the “border dispute” 400 miles within land forever promised to Mexico and forever promised as outside any US claim.

3. The US violated our treaty with Hawaii and stole their country in 1898.

4. The US reneged on promises of freedom after the Spanish American War to impose our rule on the Philippines and install US-friendly dictators in Cuba.

5. The US entered WW1 upon no national security threat to the US and put the 3rd party presidential candidate in prison for public speeches questioning the war.

6. The CIA had several covert wars; perhaps most important in today’s context of war on Iran: “Operation Ajax” that overthrew Iran’s democracy and installed a US-friendly and brutal dictator.  When that dictator was overthrown and Iran refused another, the US aided Iraq to unlawfully invade and attack Iran from 1980-1988; killing up to a million Iranians. If the US lied and acted twice to unlawfully overthrew Iran’s democracy within our own lifetimes, shouldn’t we assume first another lie-stared unlawful war today? Upon confirmation of the lies (documented below), shouldn’t we arrest the US War Criminals rather than allow them to kill again?!?

7. The Vietnam War occurred after the US allowed the cancellation of an election to unify the country, as escalated with the Gulf of Tonkin incident: false intelligence at best, but then manipulated into a false-flag event for a “defensive” war.

8. Perhaps most disturbing is the King Family civil suit that found the US government guilty in the assassination of Dr. King. Corporate media, including our text publishers, omit this history. The King family’s conclusion is that Martin was assassinated to prevent his “Occupy DC” plan beginning for the sumer of 1968 to end his version of today’s wars.

9. We now know from Congressional reports that all “reasons” for war with Iraq were known to be false as they were told.

10. The two “reasons” for war with Iran are as false as the “reasons” for war with Iraq. Beware a false flag attack by the US or Israel to blame on Iran as pretext for another “defensive” war:

  1. Iran’s president never physically threatened Israel.
  2. All of Iran’s nuclear material is fully accounted for peaceful and legal use for energy and medicine.

Want a brighter future? Recognize and end the “emperor has no clothes” obvious crimes of the present as a first step. Standing for a US government that defends unalienable rights that begin with “life,” the freedom that government will not murder, is a good place to start.

I invite you all to stand with Lincoln’s assertion:

“… let every American pledge his life, his property, and his sacred honor;–let every man remember that to violate the law, is to trample on the blood of his father, and to tear the character of his own, and his children’s liberty. Let reverence for the laws, be breathed by every American mother, to the lisping babe, that prattles on her lap–let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in Primers, spelling books, and in Almanacs;–let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. And, in short, let it become the political religion of the nation; and let the old and the young, the rich and the poor, the grave and the gay, of all sexes and tongues, and colors and conditions, sacrifice unceasingly upon its altars.

While ever a state of feeling, such as this, shall universally, or even, very generally prevail throughout the nation, vain will be every effort, and fruitless every attempt, to subvert our national freedom.”

    Let’s assume points 1 – 10 are correct ..what, in your opinion, is the real reason the US (we’ll leave Israel aside for the moment) wants to go to war with Iran?

      Phil: my response is that it doesn’t matter for the desired action of arresting the War Criminals for committing War Crimes in current wars, and lying for more war with Iran.

      Once the arrests are made and the criminals have no power to launch such a war, then I’m happy to guess as testimony and evidence become available.

      The point is to recognize and end these mass-murders under our flag, and with our soldiers and resources.

    As far as the Mideast is concerned the U.S. and Israel’s tactical moves are almost complete regarding Iran. That their strategy of total domination is quickly being revealed and proven goes without saying. What comes next will be more than interesting and most assuredly dangerous for all of us. Any conflict with Iran will eventually involve nuclear weapons. It has to. Think of the consequences involved in sinking an American carrier or a few missiles detonating in Tel Aviv. The ‘leaders’ involved in these decisions are truly madmen, light years beyond sociopathy as sociopaths intrinsically understand that they will not possess a platform or stage to perform on if they allow their behavior to become too destructive. We are being confronted with the painfully ugly truth that those holding the reins of power are insane, totally insane and that they are quickly occupying those areas where there can be no redemption, only misery. They have created and inhabited a reality for themselves which doesn’t exist for the rest of us – kind of like those living in a mental institution. The fact that they are criminally insane does not mitigate the fact that they have control of almost unlimited destructive power which they are rarely reluctant to use. Hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis, Afghanis, Pakistanis and Americans simply do not make a difference to them; yet this deadening sorrow is a truth we ALL should be hanging our heads in shame about. It has increased their bloodlust and rarely do they mention their carnage in terms other than victory. This is one of the inescapable signs of a raging sociopathy. I agree with this article with all of my heart. They should be arrested and separated from the general society and kept there until their dying days.

      Yes, Denny. So we had better be as efficient as we can to win this revolution.

    Interesting list but you forgot point #11– The US Govt needlessly went to war in 1861 to prevent the Southern states from legally leaving the Union which was their right to do. There is nothing in the Constitution which says it is illegal or forbidden for a state to peaceably leave the Union if the populace of that state chooses it, so instead the US Govt used military might to stop it. When the soulless US govt saw in mid 1862 that its soldiers were tired of fighting and losing to Lee and considering leaving the army en masse at the end of 1862, Lincoln diabolically linked the fight to a moral issue of slavery via an empty Emancipation Proclamation that only covered US owned territory. The 1861-65 war ended up costing hundreds of billions of dollars (valued in Trillions today) and over 500,000 casualties.

    • Carl Herman

      Well said, Tyler. Yes, the lawful thing to do would have been to let the South leave the nation they voluntarily entered. The state legislators voted themselves into the Union and should retain that right to leave. That burden of proof to explain would, I think, burden the reader with territory too unfamiliar. I’m pushing it with MLK’s assassination.
