    THE ANTI-EMPIRE REPORT

    William Blumm



    "***

    What has the United States actually been doing in the Middle East in the recent past?

    the shooting down of two Libyan planes in 1981
    the bombing of Lebanon in 1983 and 1984
    the bombing of Libya in 1986
    the bombing and sinking of an Iranian ship in 1987
    the shooting down of an Iranian passenger plane in 1988
    the shooting down of two more Libyan planes in 1989
    the massive bombing of the Iraqi people in 1991
    the continuing bombings and draconian sanctions against Iraq for the next 12 years
    the bombing of Afghanistan and Sudan in 1998
    the habitual support of Israel despite the routine devastation and torture it inflicts upon the Palestinian people
    the habitual condemnation of Palestinian resistance to this
    the abduction of "suspected terrorists" from Muslim countries, such as Malaysia, Pakistan, Lebanon and Albania, who were then taken to places like Egypt and Saudi Arabia, where they were tortured
    the large military and hi-tech presence in Islam's holiest land, Saudi Arabia, and elsewhere in the Persian Gulf region
    the support of numerous undemocratic, authoritarian Middle East governments from the Shah of Iran to Mubarak of Egypt to the Saudi royal family
    the invasion, bombing and occupation of Afghanistan, 2001 to the present, and Iraq, 2003 to the present
    the bombings and continuous firing of missiles to assassinate individuals in Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan, and Libya during the period of 2006-2011

    It can't be repeated or emphasized enough. The biggest lie of the "war on terrorism", although weakening, is that the targets of America's attacks have an irrational hatred of the United States and its way of life, based on religious and cultural misunderstandings and envy. The large body of evidence to the contrary includes a 2004 report from the Defense Science Board, "a Federal advisory committee established to provide independent advice to the Secretary of Defense." The report states:

    "Muslims do not hate our freedom, but rather they hate our policies. The overwhelming majority voice their objections to what they see as one-sided support in favor of Israel and against Palestinian rights, and the long-standing, even increasing, support for what Muslims collectively see as tyrannies, most notably Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Pakistan and the Gulf states. Thus, when American public diplomacy talks about bringing democracy to Islamic societies, this is seen as no more than self-serving hypocrisy."

    The report concludes: "No public relations campaign can save America from flawed policies." (Christian Science Monitor, November 29, 2004)

    Yeah, Muslims don't hate the Freedom we give women, or the Freedom we Give Gays, or other Religions. That is why they are so darn nice to those groups in their own Countries right?

    More Lies, Distortions and Bullshit from the hate America Crowd.

    When the Dollar collapses and the US is no longer able to project their Empire via bombing campaigns, you're gonna' see just how hated America is. Not Americans, the American Government.

    There is much to be said for Ron Paul
    and if one is to cast a throw away vote
    one could do worse than voting for him.
