Recently, the Senate Armed Services Committee held a hearing regarding the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force, the extremely dubious and un-Constitutional legislation that gave the United States government “legal authority” to use military force against “those who planned, authorized, committed or aided” the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Rather than arresting and executing the dual Israeli-American citizens and other traitors who planned, facilitated, executed, and covered up 9/11, using military force against the criminal terrorist state of Israel, whose agents and assets perpetrated and benefitted from that dastardly act, the United States military launched what has turned out to be an endless war against a faceless, amorphous enemy.
First, it justified the various military campaigns launched by the United States military at the behest of Israel and Jewish criminals largely controlling the United States government and foreign policy making apparatus. Since 9/11, a number of countries in the Middle East and Africa have been invaded and destroyed as a result of the “Global War on Terror”: Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya are prime examples. Somalia, Pakistan, Yemen, and other countries have been targeted as well, and have either been bombed (often using pilotless drones) or have been invaded by small teams of elite special operations forces. Millions of innocent peoples have been murdered and millions more have seen their lives and families destroyed as a result of these immoral, illegal, and unjustified military actions. Syria and Iran have been in the crosshairs of the Jewish controlled regime occupying Washington for years now, and both nations have been repeatedly attacked in various ways by proxies and terrorist groups funded and directed by the West and Israel.
Second, 9/11 has been used to justify the tyrannical police state/Homeland Security complex that has arisen following that event. Indeed, the very idea of “Homeland Security” and the various policies implemented following 9/11 are Jewish at their very root. The Homeland Security complex is a Jewish racket, as I have detailed here. In essence, the Jews have turned America into occupied Palestine as a result of 9/11. The United States Constitution and rule of law have officially been destroyed – at least for those operating at the highest levels of society.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Obama administration and members of Congress are now openly saying the “Global War on Terror” may last another 10 or 20 years at least, maybe even indefinitely. This is what passes as legitimate political and public policy dialogue in America today. George Orwell would truly be amazed at what is going on. Charlie Savage of The New York Times reported on this recent development:
A top Pentagon official said Thursday that the evolving war against Al Qaedawas likely to continue “at least 10 to 20 years” and urged Congress not to modify the statute that provides its legal basis.
“As of right now, it suits us very well,” Michael A. Sheehan, the assistant secretary of defense for special operations, said, referring to the “authorization to use military force,” often referred to as the A.U.M.F., enacted by Congress in 2001. […]
Lawmakers are considering enacting a new authorization, because the original Qaeda network has been largely decimated, while the current threat is increasingly seen as arising from terrorist groups in places like Yemen that share Al Qaeda’s ideology but have no connection to the 2001 attacks.
That possibility has elicited a decidedly mixed reaction. Human rights groups that want to see the 12-year-old military conflict wind down fear that a new authorization would create an open-ended “forever war.”
Some supporters of continuing the wartime approach to terrorism indefinitely fear that the war’s legal basis is eroding and needs to be bolstered, while others worry that a new statute might contain limits that would reduce the power that the Obama administration claims it already wields under the 2001 version.
And still others say that whatever the right policy may be, Congress should protect its constitutional role by explicitly authorizing the parameters of the war, rather than ceding that decision to the executive branch.
If you asked an average person on the street, “What is Al Qaeda?” what do you think they’d say? Does anyone know what or who “Al Qaeda” or “Islamic extremism” really is? Again, this is what passes for legitimate political and public policy dialogue in America today.
As an independent, critical thinker, how insulted and outraged are you? Do the criminals controlling the United States government and media really expect us to blindly support endless war against poor people thousands of miles away from us who pose absolutely no threat to our country and people?
Glenn Greenwald had some typically insightful and powerful commentary on this Orwellian development in his column in The Guardian entitled, “Washington gets explicit: it’s ‘war on terror’ is permanent”:
… each year of endless war that passes further normalizes the endless rights erosions justified in its name. The second term of the Bush administration and first five years of the Obama presidency have been devoted to codifying and institutionalizing the vast and unchecked powers that are typically vested in leaders in the name of war. Those powers of secrecy, indefinite detention, mass surveillance, and due-process-free assassination are not going anywhere. They are now permanent fixtures not only in the US political system but, worse, in American political culture.
Each year that passes, millions of young Americans come of age having spent their entire lives, literally, with these powers and this climate fixed in place: to them, there is nothing radical or aberrational about any of it. The post-9/11 era is all they have been trained to know. That is how a state of permanent war not only devastates its foreign targets but also degrades the population of the nation that prosecutes it. […]
Nobody really even knows with whom the US is at war, or where. Everyone just knows that it is vital that it continue in unlimited form indefinitely.
In response to that, the only real movement in Congress is to think about how to enact a new law to expand the authorization even further. But it’s a worthless and illusory debate, affecting nothing other than the pretexts and symbols used to justify what will, in all cases, be a permanent and limitless war. The Washington AUMF debate is about nothing other than whether more fig leafs are needed to make it all pretty and legal.
The Obama administration already claims the power to wage endless and boundless war, in virtually total secrecy, and without a single meaningful check or constraint. No institution with any power disputes this. To the contrary, the only ones which exert real influence – Congress, the courts, the establishment media, the plutocratic class – clearly favor its continuation and only think about how further to enable it. That will continue unless and until Americans begin to realize just what a mammoth price they’re paying for this ongoing splurge of war spending and endless aggression.
The United States government, regardless of which party is in power, is fixated on prosecuting illegal, immoral, and unjust wars on a permanent basis at the behest of Israel and international Zionism. This endless war is becoming increasingly more and more difficult to justify to the American public. It is past time Americans of all political leanings unite in opposition to the fraudulent and destructive “Global War on Terror” and the various tyrannical policies enacted in order to prosecute it. We must demand an immediate withdraw of all American troops from every overseas outpost, and arrest the real criminals responsible for 9/11 and the wars of aggression launched as a result.
