Welcome Home Troops

President Obama has accomplished plenty for US war veterans since taking office, from repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” to improving veteran’s benefits and initiating a new policy to promote federal hiring of veterans and their spouses.  But perhaps his greatest effort was keeping his campaign promise to end the sham war in Iraq and to exit that country, bringing our military might home.

The US military lowered the American flag at the Iraqi base today and officially fulfilled on that promise as fewer than 5,000 troops on two bases remain in country.  That down from as much as 170,000 troops and 500 bases — it must’ve been an amazing logistics effort.  Now we can finally start to work with the vets that come home — many of whom questioned why we were even there — and help them adjust back to life state-side.  We may never be able to help them fully understand why nearly 4,500 of their brothers and sisters had to die, and why hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians were killed, but we must assist them in getting back to a sense of normalcy in their lives.

So welcome back troops.  Can’t explain why the Bush/Cheney debacle that started almost nine years ago as “Shock and Awe” was nothing more than “Crock and Flaw,” we’re just glad you’re home.  Happy holidays to you and your family, and hope that 2012 brings you good health, great success and God’s blessings.

And thank you President Obama.

    All facts prove US War Crimes, there is no refutation, so where are the arrests?

    War law and Constitutional Rights are central to competence in government, citizenry, and military. The US Constitution provides multiple protections of the first Unalienable Right of Life from government murder. The US Constitution is the very definition of what it means to be an American, as you know.

    Because all facts prove beyond doubt that a “1%” in government with complicit liars in corporate mediahave engaged in criminal Wars of Aggression, and to date there is no documented refutation of these facts, the elegantly simple solution to War Crimes is arrests of its obvious leaders.

    Justice under law works with prima facie evidence; that is, if obviously valid facts are unchallenged, they are our best understanding. When law enforcement that currently serve the criminal 1% achieve this “emperor has no clothes” transformation, they will exercise their arrest authority.

    Here is war law; my colleagues and I have not found refutation of what it says or means: it is unlawful for a nation to use armed attack unless another nation’s military has attacked. Our connections are throughout government, academia, and our collective readership is is in the literal millions.

    That link also explains the facts from our own government agencies’ official reports of wars on Afghanistan and Iraq. Those facts reveal those two wars as not even close to lawful. My colleagues and I have never found refutation of the case of unlawful wars, or a clear explanation of how the wars are lawful given what war law means.

    Please submit links (and summaries if you’d like to communicate to the readers) of any known refutations to the documented facts here. US military have Oaths to protect and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Military are also trained to refuse unlawful orders, with officers trained to arrest those who issue them (there are no lawful orders in an unlawful war). I’ll address all claimed refutations; again here.

    Here is a summary of the tragic-comic “official reasons” for wars that claim self-defense. These “reasons” are damning testimony of official guilt:

    This cites the official US position that war on Libya was lawful and its easy refutation as the opposite of lawful. This is an important addition to anyone interested in the first unalienable right of Life from government murder.

    Here is the US government claiming it can Constitutionally assassinate Americans upon the non-reviewable dictate of the leader, as these criminals take psychopathic steps to murder Americans who expose their crimes.

    Here is NDAA 2012 where US government claims it can Constitutionally disappear Americans and then appoint a tribunal with death sentence authority (unless unlimited detention is their choice). Here is the 2006 Military Commissions Act that says the same. This is more fascist terrorism to silence Americans from communicating to the 99% that the 1% are War Criminals to arrest NOW.

    Here is US government claiming it can Constitutionally control-drown (waterboard) anyone they declare a “terrorist” as a 1% terror-tactic to silence Americans.

    So let me be perfectly clear:

    Citizens of the 99%: command the facts of these War Crimes and demand arrests of the obvious criminals in government and their lying media accomplices.
    Military and law enforcement of the 99%: please end the war-murders of millions, harm to billions, and looting of trillions of the 99%‘s wealth to the criminal 1%. Exercise your arrest authority for obvious criminals engaged in the worst crimes a nation can commit: war and looting.
    Professional educators of the 99%: how are you teaching US War Crimes and destruction of the US Constitution? Or can you refute the facts my colleagues and I find as “emperor has no clothes” obvious? Have the intellectual integrity and moral courage to do your job of teaching facts and refuting obvious and egregious lies.
    With great respect and appreciation for the contribution you’ll all make to justice under law,
