Over 64,000 soldiers have been trained to oppress, smash dissent, and maintain American imperial order since the “school” first opened.

The decision to increase US arms sales to human rights violators and conflict zones places Trump on the side of those inflicting suffering and does not help the US economy much.

Operation Condor: Cross-Border Disappearance and Death

The Obama regime is attempting to spin US support to death squads and dictators as pressing for them to protect human rights!  While Kissinger and the CIA were the ones coordinating the death squad approach to human rights in South and Central America…

“In particular, they provide insights into the Carter administration’s efforts to urge the Argentine dictatorship to abide by the rule of law, release individuals illegally detained, and account for those who had disappeared while in the custody of the state.”

Has the tone of a Republican-sponsored hit job accusing her of international crimes that the Rethugs also engage in. It’s an effort to alienate moral people from Clinton, despite the rethugs being equally contemptible . Everything the Clintons do, the republicans also do and want to do more of. One of the chief whines from the right is that we don’t do enough exploitation around the world.

How U.S. Military Bases Abroad Undermine National Security and Harm Us All

We may think such bases have made us safer. In reality, they’ve helped lock us inside a permanently militarized society that has made all of us — everyone on this planet — less secure, damaging lives at home and abroad.

Remember: “Al Nusra” has been on the US State Department’s terrorist list for years, and has been responsible for sarin gas attacks on civilians inside Syria.

Spies Warned White House: Don’t Hit Al Qaeda in Syria

The rationale / excuse:

U.S. intelligence officials warned that any additional American attacks against al Nusra could drive a wedge between the group and their erstwhile allies in the American-backed, moderate opposition.

The larger context is this covert illegal war crime against the government of Syria: created, sponsored, armed and trained by the USA and its Gulf dictator partners. This illegal proxy war complicates the world, understandably, and those responsible should simply be brought before a war crimes tribunal for Crimes Against the Peace and the deaths of a quarter of a million people. Hence the larger deception and utter farce that is this Syria imbroglio.

The article is chock full of the strains of imperial warmongers, the same scum of the planet who created the situation in the first place. Welcome to hell.

PS

Kieran Kelly reminds us:

 I wish people wouldn’t keep characterising Operation Paperclip as being the recruitment of scientists. Klaus Barbie, for example, wasn’t a scientist. He was recruited as a torture and intelligence expert. He was sent by the US to South America where he taught torture, helped engineer a coup, and may have helped track down Che Guevara – presumably using torture. Most scientists were not war criminals and did not need to be smuggled out of Europe.”

Salon covers US support for mass murderers…

35 countries where the U.S. has supported fascists, drug lords and terrorists

Unfortunately, with a headline like that they chose to put an image of marijuana at the top, of all things.  Nice job associating pot with fascists and terrorists, Salon.  Whoever chose that picture is an idiot.
