The Election Is A Turning Point
By Peter Chamberlin

"The American people realize this election represents a turning
point. In two months they will decide the future direction of our nation. It's
a decision to follow one path or another."
The choice we face in November is very clear. It is a
choice to continue to support the US
terror war, or to turn away from this path of unlimited destruction. This
lie-based war is all about terrorism – whether America
actually fights terrorism or promotes its use. To find the answer to this
conundrum all we have to do is turn our gaze to Pakistan.
In Pakistan we find the complete
history of the American "war on terrorism," from its Cold War origins
nearly thirty years ago to its present incarnation in the illegal American
aggression in Pakistan's Frontier
region (FATA, Federally Administered Tribal Areas) and in American attempts to
reignite the Cold War with Russia.
cross-border attack against Pakistan
in South Waziristan, which involved American helicopters
and ground troops, costing 15 villagers their lives, represents the first steps
in American attempts to escalate its war into a reasonable facsimile of another
Once again, America claims that its
aggression against Pakistan is a
legitimate act of self-defense against the "Pakistani Taliban"
(TTP,Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan), who,
it is claimed, are responsible for America's
faltering war effort in Afghanistan.
Wednesday's aggression was another attempt to get TTP leader Baitullah Mehsud
(branded "public enemy number one" by the US)
or one of his top commanders. Mehsud is the key to understanding America's true
role in the terror war, that of state terrorism planner and facilitator, in
order to later assume the role of defender against the terrorism it causes.
Baitullah Mehsud assumed control of the TTP from its founder, his infamous
cousin Abdullah Mehsud. Abdullah was a prisoner at Guantanamo
before being inexplicably released to return to Pakistan,
where he founded the new Taliban splinter group. On his second day in S.
Waziristan he instigated the kidnapping of two Chinese engineers from the
building of the Gomal Zam Dam, beginning the TTP fight against America's
adversaries in the region.
Setting the pattern for all future American terror attacks, the American
media reported that America's
secret allies, the TTP, were "al Qaida linked." Whenever and wherever
the Western media uses the expression "al Qaida linked," to describe
terrorist attacks, they are referring to American terrorism. This is also
painfully true about those sinister forces that killed 3,000 American civilians
on September 11, 2001. American/"al Qaida" terrorism always targets
civilians, even American civilians. Next to the US
military, al Qaida is the greatest killer of innocent Muslims in the world.
Now we have American covert forces busily killing Pakistani civilians by the
hundreds, in order to justify the planned overwhelming American assault upon
Pakistan, which is conveniently situated between the main target Iran and all
that juicy fuel located in the "Stans," the former Soviet satellites
where America's Georgian mercenaries are busily committing acts of genocide to
restart the new Cold War.
The American destabilization of nuclear-armed Pakistan
has been the key to the planned destruction of Iran
and the seizure of the Caspian region oil and gas fields and the pipeline
routes for marketing the stolen booty. Targeting American-backed militants, who
are using the same terrorist training camps created by the CIA to launch a
"jihad" against the Soviets, American interests are seeking to topple
the Pakistani government and to seize their nuclear arsenal.
The corporate American government cannot survive the debt-based collapse of
its own economy and the world economy without a massive military expansion of
its power, gaining control of the world's energy reserves. America
cannot continue bullying the world to have its way without this key asset.
The Republican and Democratic co-conspirators understand the dilemma created
greed and attempts to forge a global empire. This means that no matter who wins
the November election will continue this policy of international piracy and
terrorism. It is up to the American people to decide whether these policies of
state terrorism continue. It is our decision to make, whether we allow America
to destroy the world to save itself, or whether we suffer the economic consequences
for our actions in the past. By our inaction, or by the wrong action, we allow
the evil that our government continually sows. By participating in our farcical
"free elections," casting a vote for either man, we vote to destroy a
large portion of the world and its people.
We can no longer give our assent to the crimes against humanity committed
against the world by our government on a daily basis. Non-participation in the
affairs of this government on any level, will deny it the cover of legitimacy
and support it needs to continue on its terror rampage. We must become the
"monkey wrench" in the works of government and in American life, in
general. We begin by overwhelming the Congress with our righteous anger against
governmental plans to unleash hell on earth.
All it will take to do this is a unified signal from the people that we will
no longer silently abide its immoral actions. The Congressional parasites who
feed at the public trough fear a non-complacent electorate, a united people
committed to reclaiming our rightful positions as "watchdogs" of
All we have to do to sway a chicken hawk Congress is to convince them that
we are now awake. We must focus our antiwar efforts to disrupt the aggression
It is time to join with the democratic antiwar resistance forces in Pakistan,
to put an end to the American empire of terror.
Fight the evil that we have become!
