It seems that every day we see the fall of one neo-con or Bush appointee for the obvious corruption they've been encouraged to commit. However - there are a few on their roster who see themselves not as temporary bag holders, allowed to fatten themselves at the trough while their masters revel in the viscera of humanity, but as real champions of the people.
To put yourself out there as a savior of the people while you keep quiet or enable totalitarianism, massive wealth redistribution and unjust global war is perhaps the ultimate sin a civil servant can commit. We are coming to the point where those brave few, who like Admiral Fallon, will not submit to committing evil in our name, must either resign or pay the consequence when the lies are unveiled and the horrors enumerated.
We'll see how public opinion turns on those who have enabled the plunder of western society as the world slips deeper into one world fascist government. - Dan F.
Coverup of Extensive War Crimes: 40th Anniversary of the My Lai Massacre
Global Research, March 15, 2008
Global Research Editor's Note
In a bitter irony, Colin Powell, who was responsible for the coverup of the My Lai massacre acceded to a "brilliant" career in the Armed Forces. In 2001 he was appointed Secretary of State in the Bush administration. Although never indicted, Powell was also deeply implicated in the Iran-Contra affair.
It is worth noting that Colin Powell was Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the time of the Gulf War, which resulted in the deaths of thousands of retreating Iraqi soldiers in what British war correspondent Felicity Arbuthnot entitled "Operation Desert Slaughter".
"The forty two day carpet bombing, enjoined by thirty two other countries, against a country of just twenty five million souls, with a youthful, conscript army, with broadly half the population under sixteen, and no air force, was just the beginning of a United Nations led, global siege of near mediaeval ferocity."
In the words of General Norman Schwartzkopf who led Operation Desert Slaughter "'There was no one left to kill'...
There are been many US sponsored My Lais since the Vietnam war.
