This Year, The Gloves Come Off
Friday, 08 January 2010 15:29
by Timothy V. Gatto

During the past decade we the people of the United States have had our sensibilities assailed on a constant basis. Those that have gone along with the mainstream media and government officials and spokesman should be ashamed of themselves. There is a worldwide war being waged by the United States, not on terrorism, but on humanity. The Muslim people are not our enemies. The people that live in regions that America deems important to our geo-strategic goals are not enemies; they are “collateral damage”. The people of the United States that support our government’s charade are not patriots, but pawns. Those that fight for our government are not victors, but victims.

Those that support Barack Obama are, after watching his love affair with violence, supporting a man that has proven himself a war-mongering fascist. The corporate control of America is nearly complete. Our liberties and rights written into the American Constitution have become so watered-down by the Patriot Acts, The John Warner Defense Bill of 2006 (The re-vamped Insurrection Act), the re-vamped FISA Laws that allow the government to monitor your phone and e-mail messages and other draconian laws have basically turned America into a “security state” not unlike the Soviet Union of the last century.

I can already hear my critics proclaiming to themselves “Here he goes again”. Is this case they are right. I’ve been writing about these subjects for the last five years. My writing reminds me of when I was a boy on the North Shore of Long Island, building sand castles and trying to build walls around them to protect them from the tide. I’d start with a small wall and when the tide came in the walls would have to be made higher. Soon, I was pouring bucketfuls of sand on the walls and the ever creeping tide would always remind me that I was working at a fools’ errand. I feel this way now, but instead of being the fool myself, I see most of my fellow American’s playing the part.
 

How stupid can the citizenry of one nation be? When I studied history I always wondered how the German people could support a group of criminals like the Nazi’s. I believe I have my answer. It is as simple as fostering an idea as simple as the “Us against them” mentality. What I would like to know is who exactly are we fighting? It seems to me that this nation is fighting most of the third world, from Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen, to Venezuela, Cuba, and Bolivia to Russia on the other side of the world.

Who are our friends? The answer is all the countries that are controlled by corporate interests. Countries like Great Britain, France, and most of the NATO nations. We expand NATO into a military behemoth that has no real reason for existence other than to support the United States in its quest for Global Dominance. Even the name North Atlantic Treaty Organization supports what I am claiming. The alliance has nothing to do with the security of the North Atlantic nations that belonged to the original NATO. There is no Warsaw Pact to defend against. We are now using the alliance to kill and maim innocent Pakistani and Afghan people. Make no mistake; we are killing everyone that stands in our way. Our nation is run by a savage group of people with profit in mind.

This year will probably be the last chance we have to reclaim our country and its government. We can refuse to believe the lies and racism that comes out of Washington and march on the Capitol and demand that we return to the rule of law and civilized behavior. Nazi’s like Glenn Beck and others of his ilk should be called out for what they are, Nazi’s. Obama should be repudiated as he has tellingly demonstrated that he is a pawn of the Military Industrial Corporate Complex.

Sooner or later I and others like myself will be incarcerated for writing pieces like this. I have no doubt in my military mind. It will be the natural outgrowth of fascism.

Unless the people of America come together and fight the cancer that has infected the United States, its government and its military and those that control both, we are doomed to repeat the mistakes of the German people in 1933. We will suffer the same fate as they did in 1945. History has an odd way of repeating itself. You can question authority and be part of the solution, or you can be part of the problem. It’s up to you.
