( ... and the milk it spilled)
if what we thought was healthy was actually killing
sound in the darkness was the voice of a woman on the phone
outlining her plans to awaken a sleeping citizenry with an accurate
video version of the crime of the century. But when a man listens
to a woman, he often doesn't hear her words, but instead drifts
off into the uncharted narrative of his own dreams.
years ago I stood in the kitchen of my childhood. The giant
glass of milk I always consumed before bedtime had accidentally
crashed onto the kitchen floor, spewing a white Rorschach blot
across the checkered linoleum. I loved milk, I told her. But
her voice chided through the line: no adult animal drinks milk;
it isn't healthy, because the excess protein putrefies in your
digestive tract and catalyzes all manner of debilitating ailments.
learn what we thought was essential to our well-being may in
reality be a recipe for needless misery, not to mention serious
injury. This passing thought, this shattered glass in my memory,
got me thinking about what we once learned was good and life-giving
can with the right information lead to the realization that
we are killing ourselves because we remain ignorant of basic
evolving image coalesced in my mind as she talked about the
need to convince people that 9/11 was really an inside job inflicted
on the American people by our own leaders. Hence this thought:
what we thought was good and pure can, without accurate information,
actually be a poison that we eagerly and happily guzzle down.
long insisted that the heart-wrenching trauma that was 9/11
is the key to understanding both the past and the future of
American history. If you choose to accept the official version
of these horrible events, you are continuing to ingest a poison
that has killed millions of innocent people, and will surely
kill millions more.
you begin to contemplate the notion that our own leaders callously
engineered the whole tragedy simply to advance their own greedy
agenda, you open up a very unsettling window into the predatory
behavior of the United States, both throughout its bloody, falsely
reported history, and obviously also to a terrifying future
of what America's power-mad leaders have planned for the rest
of the world in the coming months and years.
Americans, willingly distracted by simpler concerns like children
and bank accounts, cannot - or will not - see this, despite
an avalanche of evidence that could, if we had an uncorrupted
court system, convict thousands of rich and famous men of profoundly
stunted by a one-size-fits-all educational system and constantly
deceived by clownlike media that deliberately ignore certain
negative events like fixed elections and toxic medicines, a
majority of the American people simply cannot bring themselves
to believe their leaders could be such cold-hearted villains,
such sociopathic criminals.
President Bush, who throbs the hearts of blue-haired ladies
across America and sends squadrons of superficial preachers
into convincingly feigned rhapsodies of Rapture fever, have
supervised the murder of 3,000 Americans just to get his geopolitical
Americans who have sworn their allegiance to their churches
and their country, the idea is too preposterous to consider.
Yet this allegiance, based on false information, is, for so
many (including those many Americans who are persuaded to physically
fight for their country), a fatal misstep.
we do open our minds to the endless string of lies, the towers
that couldn't have fallen due to airplane crashes, the phonecalls
that couldn't have been made with existing technology, the so-called
Arabs who never showed up on the passenger lists (allegedly
devout Muslims who ate pork and went to strip clubs), the building
that fell for no reason, the air defenses that failed to respond,
the deliberate lies, the stonewalled investigations, the confiscated
videos and tapes that would have more clearly revealed what
happened, and various other pieces of the puzzle that will never
in a million years fit together, we have an inkling that something
is really wrong, regardless of whatever allegiances we may profess.
we have not been told the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
we recall bits and pieces of history that still stick in our
craws like bad fish. The window opens.
William Blum always describes these matters best.
1945 to 2003, the United States attempted to overthrow more
than 40 foreign governments, and to crush more than 30 populist-nationalist
movements fighting against intolerable regimes. In the process,
the U.S. bombed some 25 countries, caused the end of life for
several million people, and condemned many millions more to
a life of agony and despair."
need not lurch into history books to taste that sour burp of
genuine American history. One need only not rely on newspapers
and look elsewhere for unspun info on the American genocides
transpiring this very day in Palestine, Iraq, Haiti, Colombia,
Serbia, Afghanistan and throughout Africa and Asia to acquire
an accurate picture of the way America really works.
comes as a shock to me to realize that today's majority of the
American population was not alive for Watergate, never mind
that tragic spate of assassinations in the Sixties - all of
which were engineered by the same demonic faction of the U.S.
government that exerts its murderous impulses over all of us
you young victims of the American public school system, let
me recount just a little of the actual history of your country
that you may, in your media-induced, consumeristic coma, have
know that America's involvement in World War I was triggered
by a deliberate deception known as the sinking of the Lusitania,
which was a passenger ship torpedoed by a German U-boat that
changed public opinion in America from neutral to pro-war. 128
Americans died and America eventually went to war over the incident,
after first concealing that the Lusitania was covertly carrying
ammunition to Britain, and that fact had been deliberately leaked
to German intelligence to assure a suitable public affront to
historians theorize that this period actually signalled the
end of the republic, since the most important legislative act
ever passed in American history, the Federal Reserve Act, gave
control of the currency to private bankers, who have been igniting
wars ever since for the purpose of making huge amounts of money.
process remains the centerpiece of the American economy, and
is the reason you can bask in your self-depleting trivalities
while the rest of the world forever mourns the millions murdered
by the American war machine.
War II was triggered by an almost identical process. Americans
did not want to participate in another European war, but it's
well known now that Franklin Roosevelt goaded the Japanese into
attacking Pearl Harbor, creating the necessary outrage and support
for millions more to die so the bankers could make money with
that best moneymaker of all - all out war.
Surely you've heard by now. The famous Gulf of Tonkin incident,
in which the Vietnamese supposedly opened fire on a U.S. ship,
never happened. It was a total fabrication that triggered 20
years of misery for all and killed up to four million people,
but the bankers who start these things made out like the bandits
they are. They even loaned money to the Russians who furnished
weapons to the Viets just to prolong this profitable operation
as long as possible.
of you still remember Saddam, the Iraqi stoolie put in power
by the Americans, and, thirty years later, declared to be the
reincarnation of Adolf Hitler.
said Saddam had weapons of mass destruction, so we bombed. But
now we know he had no such weapons, and yet still we bomb.
perpetrators of 9/11 were hiding in Afghanistan, they told us,
so we bombed. But when we had the chance to catch them, we didn't
want to, and still we bomb.
kind of lies have you been telling yourself that America is
the land of the free and the home of the brave? Are you still
feeding your children this crap? America is the land of racist
mass murderers. And you wave your flag and cheer as the rest
of the world bleeds.
is the key to understanding American history, your own ignorance
of how America has behaved over time is the key to understanding
how America is raping and prostituting the world, and always
has been. And you cheer that. By our silence, we are all complicit
in these crimes, because we elected these fools. Every one of
them. We are the real fools.
all this is possible when you understand what happened on 9/11,
and what has happened in all of America's foreign adventures.
America sees a commodity it likes, arranges with corporate bigwigs
how to steal that commodity for its big campaign donors, invents
a false story enumerating some perilous threat to the American
people, and goes off and murders millions.
also kills thousands of your own sons and daughters just to
make it look authentic. And you cheer.
is the key to understanding. Your own participation in mass
murder. Look in the mirror. And see how your opulent standard
of living is the direct result of all those people who were
killed, who are being killed as we speak, in your name. You
are the mass murderer. And you cheer. And then you lie about
what's really happening. It's the American way. And it always
then. To the real American justice. The real history. Your wonderful
way of life. Raise your glass of champagne high in a salute
to our valiant heroes defending freedom and democracy around
the world. Then let the glass slip through your fingers, and
crash onto the kitchen floor. You may now choose - or not -
to see the blood you're standing in.
John Kaminski's Internet essays can be seen on hundreds of websites
around the world. They have been collected into two anthologies,
the latest of which is titled "The Perfect Enemy,"
about how the Zionist-controlled U.S. government created the
terrorist group knowns as al-Qaeda.
