current American administration "has been
consistently very careless with the truth"
... has "been most consistent since the
very origin of the Iraqi war in deliberately
misleading the American people by making false
statements, statements that I'm sure [the
Administration] knew were not true. ...And
to constantly say that anybody that criticizes
any aspect of our misguided policies in Iraq are
unpatriotic and imply our condoning of terrorist
attacks is completely ridiculous and ought to be
refuted forcefully by everybody."

current war in Iraq prosecuted by
States of America
with its faithful ally Great Britain
and other puppet Allies is a frightening and shocking
example of blind ambitions roaring out of control at the
expense of surrendering
the truth and moral judgments.
Naturally the common people don't want war... That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." -- Hermann Goering

. Both these leaders are an embarrassment and are resented, by a large margin, in their own respective countries and, their international arena presence are an affront to the entire European community and well beyond. Thanks to the current President of the United States and the current British Prime Minister, the moral standing of both the US and UK is now next to zero.
. No American President and no British Prime Minister has harmed more the interests of their own countries than the present ones and, they need not escape accountability.
. Every day, every hour, every minute, every second, that these two leaders continue to remain in power is not only extremely dangerous and frightening to the world community, but also is an affront to the conscience of humanity worldwide. You can fool some people some time, you even can fool all the people some time, but cannot fool all the people all the time.
. The killing and wounding of hundred of thousands of Iraqi civilians, the sheer devastation of Iraq and instability created, the irreplaceable lost (through looting and destruction) of ancient artifacts, books, manuscripts, artwork, sculptures, etc., that goes back thousands of years to the beginning of civilization --on one hand, and the international havoc and global peace peril created that will continue to reverberate for many, many years to come --on the other hand, represent --unmistakably-- Crimes Against Humanity. (Of course, we all remember how World War II started with Nazi Germany attacking Poland in 1939 that was based on a rationale and propaganda not too different than the one advanced by the current American and British administrations for going to war with Iraq.)

. Because of the continued prosecution of this unnecessary Iraq war --now in its 4th year, the U.S. and U.K. have lost permanently their moral standing in the world and will be --for the foreseeable future-- the principal targets of hate and terrorist acts of revenge.
(The great beneficiary of the U.S. rapid decline on the world stage will undoubtedly be the ascending China that, in only a few decades, will be able to replace the U.S. as the world's superpower. The thousands and thousands of billions of US dollars that have thrown away with the Iraq war will be felt by the economy of the United States and the rest of the world for quite a long time. No American administration has harmed more the United States than the current one. This administration must face criminal accountability under the existing Federal laws of the United States.)
. Great respect and appreciation must be given to the new Germany and France for their non-wavering moral standing opposing the Iraq war and their steadfast refusal to join the so-called American puppet coalition. Those two nations --Germany and France-- have learned well the lessons from the Nazi reign, and may their blessed stand and example be an inspiration for other nations to follow, including for a new United States and a new Great Britain.
