My letter to Nancy Pelosi

91% of Americans do not want the US to engage in any military action in Syria. Over and over again, Americans have  shown the way to their elected represented representatives and those representatives have been deaf to their voices.

What unimaginable hubris is driving members of Congress like yourself, to commit an even more serious war crime than the one that the president alleges (he has no proof) is beyond understanding. Violence is the wrong response.

According to the Geneva Conventions (also domestic statute) anyone who is aware of a war crime and has the power to stop it, who fails to do so, is guilty of a crime equal to the one she failed to prevent. These are capital crimes Nancy, for which Germans paid with their lives after WW2.

Where is money coming from? Congress is telling us we must tighten our belts, not educate our children or help those punished by the crimes of others in the economic collapse or provide for those who jobs have been exported or provide medical care for those who cannot afford it because of the deficit. That’s your deficit Nancy. Half of it is from opportunistic wars and the other half is from failure to tax the profits from these wars.

This is your war crime.

Stop now and back away from another bloody, unjustifiable, illegal war.

Gen Wesley Clark Reveals 2001 US Plan To Invade Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Lybia, Somalia, Sudan, And Iran

Revelations from someone who was there.

General Wesley Clark:
Because I had been through the Pentagon right after 9/11. About ten days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in. He said, “Sir, you’ve got to come in and talk to me a second.” I said, “Well, you’re too busy.” He said, “No, no.” He says, “We’ve made the decision we’re going to war with Iraq.” This was on or about the 20th of September. I said, “We’re going to war with Iraq? Why?” He said, “I don’t know.” He said, “I guess they don’t know what else to do.” So I said, “Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to al-Qaeda?” He said, “No, no.” He says, “There’s nothing new that way. They just made the decision to go to war with Iraq.” He said, “I guess it’s like we don’t know what to do about terrorists, but we’ve got a good military and we can take down governments.” And he said, “I guess if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail.”

So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, “Are we still going to war with Iraq?” And he said, “Oh, it’s worse than that.” He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, “I just got this down from upstairs” — meaning the Secretary of Defense’s office — “today.” And he said, “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.” I said, “Is it classified?” He said, “Yes, sir.” I said, “Well, don’t show it to me.” And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, “You remember that?” He said, “Sir, I didn’t show you that memo! I didn’t show it to you!”

My letter to the man who now has the power to reduce Bradley's sentence

My letter to the man who now has the power to reduce Bradley’s sentence: Major General Buchanan,

The persecution of Bradley Manning, who honored his duty by reporting war crimes, is a dishonor to the U.S. military and government. The abuse he has suffered in prison is a crime, prohibited both by Geneva Convention and the U.S. Constitution.

The most significant crimes in this case were perpetrated by the U.S. military and the U.S. government. I am outraged and shamed by the violations of our constitution, international treaty and the abuse of the rights of U.S. citizens. Our country and the U.S military must be held to higher standards than this!

Please reduce Bradley Manning’s sentence to time served.

Thank you, Linda Boyd
