Fallujah Delenda Est
Jack Wheeler
Friday, April 2, 2004
  In the Senate of Ancient Rome, Marcus Porcius Cato - 234-149 B.C.,
subsequently known as Cato the Elder to distinguish him from his
great-grandson Cato the Younger - became famous for concluding every
single speech he gave, no matter what the subject, with the
exhortation: Carthago delenda est. Carthage must be destroyed.

  Today, we need senators and congressmen to conclude every speech they
give with the exhortation:  Fallujah delenda est. Fallujah must be
destroyed.

  I don’t mean metaphorically. I mean for the entire population of the
city, every man, woman and child, given 24 hours to leave and be
dispersed in resettlement camps, moved in with relatives in another
village, wherever, and the town turned into a ghost town.

  Then the entire city carpet-bombed by B-52s into rubble, the rubble
ground into powdered rubble by Abrams tanks, and the powdered rubble
sown with salt as the Romans did with Carthage. Fallujah must be
physically obliterated from the face of this earth.

  It is very easy and justifiable for every American to take the
barbaric horror that occurred in Fallujah on March 30 personally. It is
even easier for me in particular because the private contractor who
provided the convoy guards murdered and butchered by the Fallujahites
is a personal friend.

  Yet this is a crime that requires far more punishment than simple
revenge. Let me state it clearly: The people who committed this crime
are subhuman. They have relinquished their claim to be considered
members of the human race.

One year ago, Americans saw on their television screens another act of
barbarity, the abused bodies of American soldiers taken prisoner in
Nasiriyah filled with bullet holes and dumped into a pile. In response,
I wrote an essay entitled “The Oldest War” (NewsMax, March 25, 2003).

  The words of that essay are now ringing in my mind:

  “The War in Iraq is a continuation of the World’s Oldest War. It is a
war that began 25 centuries ago, when a few thousand Athenians,
representing the founding culture of Western Civilization, faced a
Persian horde many times their size on the field of Marathon.

  “The Persians thought they had a holy right to conquer and rule anyone
they wanted to. The Greeks looked upon them as Barbarikos, barbarians
who valued neither individual freedom nor the individual as such, who
lived instead in an anthill society and were willing to subject
themselves to the rule of an almighty dictator.

  “The Persian dictator, Darius, was sure he would crush these impudent
Greeks who dared to demand their freedom from him. At the end of that
fateful day in 490 B.C., 6,000 Persians lay dead, versus 200 Athenians.
Barbarism’s first attempt to subdue civilization was defeated.

  “There have been many, many attempts ever since. For centuries, the
Roman Legions held off vast human wolfpacks, but finally succumbed,
resulting in the Dark Ages. Islam has conducted a Jihad against the
West for 13 centuries.

  “The barbaric insanities of Marx and Hitler erupted from within
Western Civilization in the 20th century. Today the Oldest War
continues, now against Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein.

“There could not be a clearer demonstration that the War in Iraq is one
between Civilization and Barbarism than the Iraqi behavior we saw on
television yesterday. The Oldest War is one that must be continually
fought and won anew.”

  The people of Iraq as a whole are not barbarians. Yet there is a
barbarism in their culture capable of perpetrating subhuman atrocities.
Thus the critical conclusion:

  If Fallujah is not destroyed now, the genie of barbarism is out of the
Iraqi bottle, with Iraq disintegrating into a civil war of
annihilation.

  Turning Fallujah into rubble, smashing its atrocity with a hammer, is
the only way to get this genie back in the bottle. Iraq is not a real
country, only a collection of tribes that hate each other.

  If the Sunnis of Fallujah can burn and mutilate Americans, Shias will
be only too eager to do the same with Sunnis, Kurds to Turkmen, on and
on, once American soldiers are no longer there to prevent them from
doing so.

  Iraq has been liberated from a monstrous tyranny and handed its
freedom on a platinum platter. The question now is: Are the Iraqis
capable of keeping the freedom that has been given to them? The
atrocity of Fallujah is evidence they are not. The destruction of
Fallujah will contain the virus of barbarism and give all Iraq a chance
to be inoculated against it.

  The power of the Internet enables all of us to be a modern Cato the
Elder.

  From now on, every pro-American writer and blogger should conclude
whatever he writes no matter what the subject, every pro-American
private citizen and everyone reading this essay should conclude any
e-mail they send no matter what the topic with:

  Fallujah Delenda Est.

A l epoque d ailleurs il parlait peu et on lui reprochait un peu partout son caractere de chien et sur l insistence de .. la Maison Blanche ou du Vice-President (je ne me souviens plus) il lui avait ete conseille de se rendre plus abordable pour le plus grand bien de ladministration a laquelle l attitude bourrue et rebarbative de Rummy causait pas mal d animosite. Il s etait donc mis a la tache et s etait graduellement ouvert de ses principales preoccupations qui etaient plus terre-a-terre que celles de Dick Clarke mais bien sur - a la lumiere des evenements, a cote de la plaque.

WASHINGTON - This is a good time to recall the words of my old friend Lt. Gen. (retired) Hal Moore: “Hate war, but love the American warrior!”

It is also a good time to remember that in August 1964, when America took its first big step into the swamps of Vietnam, the American people and their representatives were nearly unanimous in support of military action against North Vietnam.

When President Lyndon Johnson asked for a virtual blank check to pursue that war in the wake of the Tonkin Gulf incident, only two senators voted against it - Wayne Morse of Oregon and Ernest Gruening of Alaska.

When President Bush gave the signal for the attack on Iraq one year ago, nearly 70 percent of the American public agreed that he was doing the right thing. Today only 58 percent of Americans believe that decision was the right one, and 51 percent of adults polled in a CBS News sampling now respond that the Iraq war was not worth what it has cost in terms of American lives and American treasure.

So far the growing dislike of our entanglement in Iraq has not extended to the soldiers and Marines tasked to fight that war. The American military continues to enjoy high public approval ratings, and the stories are legion of the warm welcomes showered on young soldiers in uniform coming home on leave.

It was not always so. The Vietnam War, which polarized and divided the nation in ways not seen since the Civil War, gave rise to a sad chapter in American history. Many were seemingly unable to separate the war they hated from the soldiers the country sent to fight that war.

Young men who had survived a terrible experience came home to find that they were hated as well. They were advised to change into civilian clothes before leaving the airport. Some bought long hair wigs to disguise their military haircuts. They learned quickly enough not to talk about where they had been or what they had done.

People used such hateful words as “baby killer” on youngsters who had been drafted (20,000 of them each month) and ordered to Vietnam - youngsters who had seen their best friends slaughtered in a war suddenly orphaned and eventually abandoned by the nation under whose flag they fought.

This is a good time, too, to remember, the young men of Project 100,000 who also fought and died in Vietnam. They must be a haunting memory and a shameful legacy for former Defense Secretary Robert McNamara, who was the program’s chief mover.

Beginning in 1965 and continuing for three years of war, Project 100,000 saw McNamara order the relaxation of standards of mental ability to allow the conscription of young men who tested as borderline mentally handicapped, Category IV. They were recycled through boot camp two or three times until finally they passed. Training manuals were translated into comic books so they could grasp the principles.


They could not be taught any other skills and so, for these 100,000 unfortunates drafted each of those three years, their fate was the Infantry, MOS 11-Bravo. These innocents were sent straight to Vietnam and straight into combat, where they died at a rate nearly three times that of the average draftee.

Shame on McNamara. Shame on us.

A series of quick, almost bloodless combat and peacekeeping operations - the Persian Gulf war, Panama, Grenada, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo - changed the American public perception of what war is all about and created unrealistic expectations and definitions of success.

Only in the beginning did Iraq fulfill that expectation, with a three-week lightning strike that seized a nation and toppled a hated dictator. What has happened since then has been anything but quick, clean or bloodless. Some 550 American soldiers have been killed. Thousands more have been wounded, many horribly maimed by the improvised explosive devices that torment the convoys on Iraq’s roads and streets.

The prospects are for more of the same. No one in authority has yet defined the end game or the exit strategy for Iraq. Two years? Five years? Ten years? A hundred billion dollars of taxpayer money spent on Iraq this past year. How much this year? How much next year?

Whatever the answers may be it is good that the American people are not blaming their soldiers for the failures of political leadership.

Hate war, but love the American warrior.

VOTE 2004: Getting to Know John Kerry

————————————————————————————————————————
 
 
About Del Sandusky

Del Sandusky (left) and John Kerry in Vietnam, February, 1969.


Del Sandusky was born in Streator, Illinois in December 1943. He was raised in Illinois and Florida. He joined the Navy 1960 and left in 1976. Mr. Sandusky did two tours in Vietnam, one in 1966 and one from May of 1968-1969 with John Kerry in the Mekong Delta. Afterwards, he returned to the U.S. and was a computer service technician. He started campaigning for John Kerry in 1996.

————————————————————————————————————————

Military.com spoke briefly with Del Sandusky on 17-Mar-2004. Here is what was said:

Military.com: Can you give us a quick run-through of how and when you first met John Kerry?

Del Sandusky: During the Vietnam War. Our previous boat officer was Medevac-ed out. John Kerry’s crew from 1968 had rotated back to the U.S. He was an officer without a crew, and we were a crew without an officer… We learned very early on that John Kerry was someone very special. He was charismatic, and proved to us that he was an excellent leader with great instincts. We owe our lives to one other - he saved our lives, and we saved his.

Military.com: We know there was one incident in which your boat faced a Viet Cong soldier with a grenade launcher, and Mr. Kerry chased him down. Could you describe that incident?

D.S.: Yes - John received a Silver Star for that action. The Viet Cong had a B-40 rocket. It’s bigger than a rocket propelled grenade (RPG) - a little longer - it’s more like a bazooka shell and launcher out of WWII. He was in a spider hole - a pop-top hole dug in the ground for ambushes. The VC was ready to fire, but he was too close. He immediately knew he was in trouble when Lt. Kerry ordered for the boat to be beached and got the bow right up in his face, about 10 feet away. He stumbled out of the hole and tried to get behind a hooch (a little shed) up on the beach. Lt. Kerry immediately assessed the situation and knew that this guy was just going to get in a better launch position. If that guy had managed to shoot the rocket at us, we would be like a Roman candle - all of us would have died. My forward gunner could not train his guns on the enemy because when we beached the boat, the bow went up too high. As if that wasn’t enough, the M-60 machine gun on the bow had jammed, so we really had no weapons to go in against him.


John immediately assessed the situation, grabbed a rifle, and chased the guy down. If he had not done so, we would have all been dead. The situation called for an instant decision, and John Kerry made that decision. Whenever we got into a firefight, his immediate response was to “attack, attack, attack.”

Military.com: How do you see John Kerry helping the country, and especially military members and families, if he were to be elected President?

D.S.: I know John Kerry - I’ve known him for 35 years. In 35 years, he has never lied to me. Honesty means something to me, and it does to a lot of people around the country. I know that he’s a Veteran and a warrior. Everyone whom I’ve spoken with around the country on this campaign - hawks, doves, Democrats, Republicans - everyone remembers back in 1971 when he protested against the war. Everyone remembers that John Kerry had the courage to do what’s right, the courage to speak out against the war. His voice in that year meant a lot to the country. It helped to de-escalate and get us out of the war. Many Veterans whom I’ve spoken with particularly remember that voice and his courage.

Additionally, all of us who have followed or helped out on this campaign know that he is a great statesman, he supports the VA, and has strong feelings towards Veterans. For those three main reasons, I as well a lot of other Veterans support John Kerry.

Military.com: There seems to be a strong movement afoot of Veterans against Kerry. What are your reactions to this?

D.S.: I have no idea where they’re coming from. They’re totally negative… all of the people and Veterans I’ve met are completely positive. We love, honor and respect John Kerry, and we’re here to testify as to his credentials. Any criticisms are usually baseless or foundless or trumped up. We’re trying to avoid the mudslinging on this campaign, but I just wish that those on the other side wouldn’t do it.

Military.com: Do you have any personal stories or anecdotes involving you and Mr. Kerry that you would like to share?

D.S.: One story that comes to mind back in Vietnam was on board the boat. We were up and down rivers and canals in enemy territory - the Viet Cong’s backyard. Every day we were involved in firefights - sometimes two or three times a day. It was very intense, especially when you’re just a few American boys from the other side of the planet. We rescued a little puppy from a village. She would have been somebody’s dinner, but you know American boys - “that’s my dog” - we just had to help her! We brought her aboard and named her “Victoria Charlotte” - a play on the initials “V.C.” She did not like the Viet Cong, not to mention any other Vietnamese. She turned out to be a great watchdog. We had her on board for a short period of time.

One day we got ready to go out on patrol, and knew that it was going to be hot and hairy. Instead of tossing the dog out before heading into battle, John picked up the dog, and put her in between his flak jacket and his stomach. That was a sign of John Kerry’s compassion - all for a stupid little dog!

Ever after that, as we prepared to go out on patrol, John would point to one of us or to the dog, and all of us knew to take care of the dog. We wound up taking care of her for a long time, until once she got blown overboard when a mine nearby exploded. Luckily the boat behind us rescued her. But I just remember John and how he demonstrated to us how to care for that little dog - that was an early indication to me of the special person John Kerry is.

Military.com: We know you’ve got to get going on the campaign trail. Thank you for your time and safe travels!

D.S.: Not a problem. Thanks to Military.com for your time as well!

Bulles financières et virtualisme

Article lié :

Anamorphose

  25/03/2004

On peut être milliardaire et néanmoins critique virulent de Bush et des neocons, comme en témoigne le cas bien connu du financier George SOROS.
Dans une interview au journal Libération (daté du 24/3), il déclare :

” Avant même le 11 septembre 2001, l’administration Bush avait l’intention de rétablir la suprématie américaine dans le monde. Le 11 septembre leur a donné l’ennemi qu’ils cherchaient. Depuis lors, le Parti républicain est devenu un instrument pour des conservateurs extrémistes et fondamentalistes qui l’ont poussé très loin à droite, rompant l’équilibre qui prévalait jusqu’alors aux Etats-Unis. Pendant dix-huit mois, le pays a été dominé par un groupe qui croyait dans la suprématie américaine, dans le pouvoir comme force dominante des relations entre pays, au mépris des lois internationales. Ces tendances, déjà présentes dans l’administration Reagan, ont été exacerbées.”

Et il ajoute cette phrase, qui exprime bien le caractère virtualiste de notre époque (sur lequel insiste à juste titre notre hôte Philippe Grasset) :

” Tout s’est passé comme dans une bulle financière : lorsque la réalité est interprétée de manière fausse, la perception de cette réalité en ressort tout d’abord renforcée, mais au bout d’un moment la bulle éclate…”

http://www.liberation.com/page.php?Article=188658

Ce rapprochement entre virtualisme et bulle financière mène à se poser la question suivante : le virtualisme est-il un phénomène structurel de notre temps, un phénomène de fond, en quelque sorte ? Ou bien notre époque se caractériserait-elle plutôt par des accès (conjoncturels) de virtualisme, un peu comme la Bourse fait de temps en temps des bulles financières ?
Philippe Grasset a-t-il une opinion sur ce point ?

On épinglera cette réplique de Rumsfeld :

“Clarke, (...), said Rumsfeld complained in the meeting that “there aren’t any good targets in Afghanistan and there are lots of good targets in Iraq.” “

A noter dans cet article:

- les enclaves serbes ont toutes été attaquées en meme temps
- on nous parle du désir separatiste des “albanais du kosovo” et des “albanais de macédoine”

ce que je trouve amusant c’est qu’on ne nous parle plus des “pauvres kosovars” ... ça c’était il y a 10 ans, à l’époque ou les méchants serbes opprimaient la gentille population unie (les fameux kosovars) ... maintenant on nous parle d’albanais de par-ci par-la versus des “musulmans de serbie” (article ci-dessous)...

ce que sous-entendent ces terroristes de la pensée ... c’est bien sur que les zones peuplées d’albanais ... font partie de l’albanie (pour le moment, on est un peu pudique, on nous parle que d’independance ... pas de réunification ...)

pour mettre un terme au projet de Grande Serbie,on laisse se constituer une Grande Albanie ...
Il s’agit là encore d’une intervention des pompiers pyromanes américains soutenus par les turcs et qui se sont donné pour objectif à la chute de l’URSS et afin de contrer son influence en Europe centrale,la création de cette Grande Albanie musulmane.

Le projet est semble-t-il toujours sur les rails ...

La flambée de violence au Kosovo risque de déstabiliser les Balkans (ECLAIRAGE) par Victoria STEGIC
18/03/2004 - 17:22

BELGRADE, 18 mars (AFP) -
La flambée de violence interethnique au Kosovo risque de déstabiliser les Balkans et constitue un test à la fois pour la communauté internationale qui administre cette province depuis juin 1999 et pour le nouveau gouvernement de Belgrade, confronté à un réveil nationaliste en Serbie.
Des affrontements d’une violence jamais vue depuis la fin du conflit armé serbo-albanais de 1998-1999 ont fait en moins de 24 heures, selon un bilan de l’Onu, 22 morts et quelque 500 blessés dans les trois parties impliquées, Albanais, Serbes, forces de l’Otan et de l’Onu.
La simultanéité avec laquelle des milliers d’Albanais s’en sont pris aux enclaves serbes (80.000 habitants environ), neutralisant les soldats de la paix, a été dénoncée jeudi par le Premier ministre serbe Vojislav Kostunica.
“Les violences ont été planifiées à l’avance et coordonnées. Il s’agit d’une tentative de pogrom et de nettoyage ethnique” contre les Serbes du Kosovo, a déclaré M. Kostunica.
Réflexion partagée par de nombreux analystes à Belgrade, convaincus que la communauté internationale a échoué dans sa mission visant à pacifier la province et y faire cohabiter les communautés albanaise, majoritaire, et serbe, très minoritaire.
“Les événements témoignent du fiasco total de la mission internationale”, a déclaré Rasim Ljajic, ministre serbe des Minorités, rejetant sur l’Occident la responsabilité de cette crise, “qui risque de déstabiliser toute la région, si l’Union européenne et les Etats-Unis ne réagissent pas rapidement et résolument”.
Pour ce musulman de Serbie, les troubles ont “sonné le glas” de l’idée d’un Kosovo multiethnique et “montré que les Albanais veulent non seulement un Kosovo indépendant, mais aussi un Kosovo ethniquement pur”.
“Il s’agit d’un énorme pas en arrière, dans une voie très dangereuse”, a estimé à Pristina, chef-lieu du Kosovo, le responsable dans cette province de l’institut de recherches International Crisis Group (dont le siège est à Bruxelles), Alex Anderson.
La mission de l’Onu (Minuk) et la Force de l’Otan (Kfor) “ont très mal assuré la sécurité” des habitants, estime Dusan Janjic, responsable d’une ONG serbe plaidant en faveur de la cohabitation des Serbes et des Albanais au Kosovo, le Forum pour les relations interethniques.
Un sentiment partagé par Blerim Shala, rédacteur en chef du journal albanais Zeri à Pristina, pour qui “il n’était pas difficile d’imaginer que la situation risquait d’échapper à tout contrôle” après les incidents des derniers jours au Kosovo.
Les Albanais du Kosovo ne cessent de rappeler leur souhait d’accéder à l’indépendance, ce que refuse la Serbie.
Un Kosovo indépendant ne manquerait pas d’inspirer les mêmes idées aux Albanais de la Macédoine voisine où ils représentent près de 24% des deux millions d’habitants.
La donne politique vient de changer en Serbie, avec l’arrivée au pouvoir de M. Kostunica, nationaliste modéré qui n’a pu former le gouvernement qu’avec le soutien des nationalistes du SPS (Parti socialiste) de Slobodan Milosevic, l’ex-homme fort de Belgrade dont la politique a favorisé les guerres fratricides des années 90 en Croatie, en Bosnie et au Kosovo.
Tomislav Nikolic, le vice-président du Parti radical ultra-nationaliste, qui domine le parlement serbe avec 82 sur 250 sièges, a évoqué la possibilité de “recourir à nouveau aux armes pour protéger les Serbes du Kosovo”. M. Nikolic a de grandes chances de devenir président de Serbie avant l’été.
M. Kostunica avait irrité les Albanais, et fait bondir la Minuk en prônant début mars une partition du Kosovo ou sa “cantonisation” avant de rectifier le tir, insistant sur la “décentralisation” des pouvoirs, afin d’assurer la sécurité des Serbes du Kosovo.
“Un redécoupage des frontières est inacceptable”, a répondu le président du Kosovo, Ibrahim Rugova. Un point de vue qui est aussi celui du chef de la Minuk, Harri Holkeri.

sur les motivations du vote et du changement de politique en Espagne, il y a aussi ce fait essentiel :

les Espagnols ont rejeté d’autant plus clairement Aznar et son parti (comment s’appelait son successeur, déjà ?  :) , qu’ils n’ont pas supporté la tentative de mensonge et manipulation du gouvernement, Aznar essayant aussitôt d’accuser ETA.

toute la question est maintenant, à partir de quand Aznar savait-il que ce n’était pas ETA ? le savait-il dès le début ?

une info publiée par la radio Cadena Ser, je crois, et relayée dans la presse, y compris el mundo, est renversante :
- pendant que son ministre de l’Intérieur taxait les manifestations spontanées d’illégales - à quoi la rue répondait 2 minutes plus tard “la voix du peuple ne peut pas être illégale” -

Aznar aurait la nuit du samedi au dimanche réuni un cabinet de crise et tenté d’instaurer l’état d’exception et repousser les élections (de 2 mois ou jusqu’en octobre) au prétexte de ces “troubles”, manifestations “politiques” interdites avant les élections… le roi Juan Carlos aurait refusé : sa signature est indispensable…

(pas de confirmations officielles, ni de preuves irréfutables, mais… Cadena Ser et autres sont sérieux et bien informés..)
