Urinating Into The Wind
Sometimes the hypocrisy and lies get so blatant, so egregious, that life has a to step in to tell it like it is because no one seems to be getting it. The only problem is that ‘life’ usually speaks in metaphor or symbols that require sharp eyes to spot. But even so, the recent case of American soldiers pissing on dead Afghans was hard to miss as a perfect description of US government and military attitude towards Afghanistan, and, come to think of it, the rest of the world.
Among the media pundit and political responses to the event, which included a claim by TV chat show host Montel Williams that ‘stress’ made the soldiers do it, andÂ CNN contributor and radio host Dana Loesch’s suggestion she would have done the same as the soldiers -Â “I’d have dropped trou and done it too” -, I particularly enjoyed Hilary Clinton’s heartfelt comments. Looking for all the world like an uglier version of Nefertiti, Clinton expressed her “total dismay at the deplorable behavior”, andÂ said it was “absolutely inconsistent with American values and standards of behavior that we expect from our military personnel”.
And how right she is. Soldiers are machines, and follow orders. And in the absence of direct orders, such as how to behave in with the immediate aftermath of the murder of one or more individuals in which one has directly participated, soldiers, like children, will take their example from authority figures, like Hilary Clinton for example:
Reaction to the ‘scandal’ in Afghanistan was prefect, at least from the point of view of those seeking to prolong the justification for the US military’s war of conquest and colonisation. The top negotiator from Afghan puppet president Karzai’s High Peace Council, Arsala Rahmani, said that it would have a ‘very, very bad impact on peace efforts’. He added: ‘Looking at such action, the Taliban can easily recruit young people and tell them that their country has been attacked by Christians and Jews and they must defend it.’Â So that answers the question of how and why this video was leaked. It’s called psyops, and this one was pretty easy. When peace threatens to break out (in this case because there is no real enemy to speak of), enraging a few locals by showing some jack-booted thugs pissing on their countrymen always works well to keep the war machine rolling (in money).

Been there. Done that (Exept the pee part). But I can understand why these kids (men) did it. Ask Daniel Pears wife what she thinks. How about the blackwater contractors families when their husbands were ambushed shot, repeatedly burned, decapitated, kicked like a ball in the street, beaten with pipes, then hung off of a bridge. That was quite a picture. Theres more, but you see where im going with this. Clinton is using these boys as a political tool to gain the “faith and trust” of the taliban for a “peace treaty”… some how, Clinton believes that if we continue to pay these terorists and give them a sense of respect, the US will be safe cozy with our new friends. Simply mind blowing. People need to wake up and demand better! Good remembering and posting that video of her laughing. Im very American and Patriotic. I love and have served this Great Nation. I have seen the things CNN doesnt cover here back home, simply because, in my opinion, it does not serve a hidden agenda. Ask how these marines and soldiers help change the lives of men, women, and children in afgh and irag. Food, water, housing, schools and supply. Sure there are people that sould not be allowed to wear a uniform, those individuals are in all walks of life. But the good severly out number the bad. Ask yourself, when was the last time you saw the media cover something ” good” that our mmarines and soldiers do? They do it everyday.
I see you are using the words, almost verbatim, of Rep. Allen West (R-FL), who sent his comments in an email to The Weekly Standard.
