From The Idiot Factor:
Not long ago people complained about the prison camp at
Back then President George Bush called those prisoners "enemy
combatants." he said they had no rights at all as enemy soldiers. They had
no right to trial. Guantanamo Bay
Today—many years later—where are the enemy combatants?
The answer is simple—we no longer take prisoners. We just kill those who violate our western values. Not since the US Indian Wars was there such an attempt to exterminate a people as is now being done in
If we go back to World War II, our army captured many troops and leaders of those troops. Out troops took prisoners in the Korean War. Not today. We are exterminating them.
So what happens to those who actually surrender to US led coalition troops?, according to Independent UK News:
"Iraqi security forces kill Isis prisoners because they believe that if the militants are sent to prison camps they will bribe the authorities in Baghdad to release them. “That is why Iraqi soldiers prefer to shoot them or throw them off high buildings,” says one Iraqi source. A former senior Iraqi official said he could name the exact sum that it would take for an Isis member to buy papers enabling him to move freely around
"The leader of an ISIS affiliate in
killed in a airstrike
on the groups’ headquarters this week, the Pentagon said Friday. U.S.
Abu Sayed, the emir of the Islamic State of Iraq and
the Khorasan Province,
called ISIS-K, died in Tuesday’s airstrike in Kunar Province,
a region on Afghanistan’s
northeast border with . Pakistan
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters on Friday that when leaders of terror groups like ISIS-K are killed the groups could be set back a day, a few weeks or a month. "It's obviously a victory on our side, in terms of setting them back. It's the right direction," he said."
So we see the proud victory of an Army that takes no prisoners and celebrates every time the kill an important person.
This is nothing less than genocide. This country has decided to kill all those who don't fit in with their new global order. In this war the idea is to wipe out the people who may have differences of opinion.
Another thing missing is any kind of negotiating. Our military treats that as weakness. But we have no way of moving out of this war. There can be no solution to these wars but absolute and total victory for the US Empire who is now relying on their superior weapons.
This is one more reason to oppose these phony wars. We know they are not about terrorism, that is a lie. This is about defending the
against all those who oppose it. The US started
this war, not them. They are extermination campaigns and nothing less.
