… for the U.S. Army. You can read about it here.

I sure hope these noble recruits aren’t going to be doing prison guard duty.

Is it for freedom?

Filed under: Music — Tags: , , , , , , , — Lorenzo E. Danielsson @ 00:19

If you watch Democracy Now, you will no doubt have heard this wonderful song by Sara Thomsen, called Is it for Freedom?

Note that the YouTube video I linked to contains some rather disturbing images. I think you should watch them while you listen to this song. You really need to watch them. You really need to see what bringing democracy to Iraq looks like. You need to see what exists behind all the propaganda you hear from the criminals who started this whole mess.

Now I have an extremely varied taste in music. Some would say that I have a weird taste, which I shall not deny. But Sara Thomsen represents the kind of quality music that could get me to put an end to my long-standing refusal to support the music industry. I have not bought a single music CD or video since the early 1990s.

You can find out more about Sara Thomsen at her website.

Ron Paul’s questions to Petraeus

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , — Lorenzo E. Danielsson @ 18:23

You can watch Ron Paul’s excellent questions to General Petraeus here. Of course, these are questions that the administration should be forced to answer.

We all know what the president thinks about bombing Iran without approval from Congress. He is the Decider, after all. Neither Petraeus nor Crocker wanted to answer this question, although they should both know the answer. How can Petraeus be qualified to be the commander in Iraq if he doesn’t even know the Constitution? That should be a basic requirement for anybody holding a position such as his. If he is given an order that is unconstitutional, he must refuse to obey that order.

The same goes for Crocker. How can you represent American interests abroad if you don’t even know what the Constitution has to say about who is allowed to authorize war? If the Constitution were at all respected, you would imagine that every official representing the U.S. would have a good understanding of how the Constitution works. That should be a basic requirement.

We need more people like Ron Paul asking relevant questions.

Tony Blair: wanted for war crimes

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , — Lorenzo E. Danielsson @ 13:04

We would like to see that this man is made to face trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity:

tblair.jpg

Tony Blair is a war criminal. He took an active part in the illegal war against Iraq. He also took part in the occupation and colonization of that country after it had been conquered. He is also guilty of lying to the public about the reasons for the war. He neglected world opinion and chose to only listen to the criminal in the White House.

Tony Blair is guilty of crimes against humanity. This includes, but is not limited to, crimes against the peoples of Iraq, Lebanon and Palestine. He is also guilty of neglecting his own domestic population, choosing instead to spend massively towards the extermination of Arabs. Together with important figures in the current U.S administration, Tony Blair was architect of a new style of war capitalism, which saw huge profits for companies specialized in war and destruction.

Under Tony Blair’s leadership, any credibility that Labour might have had as a force for the working classes was turned to dust. Tony Blair stabbed the working masses in the back and chose instead to be a vocal supporter of global capitalism. Recently, Blair has been rewarded a position with JPMorgan as a token of appreciation for being a free market whore.

We ask for justice. In Nuremberg, the Nazi war criminals were hung for their war crimes and their crimes against humanity. We ask that this generation of war criminals is given the same treatment. Put Tony Blair and all the other war criminals on trial and hang them. They must never be allowed to get away with the evil they have done.
