Iraq Slashes Food Rations, Putting Lives at Risk

Saddam Hussein, who was hanged about this time last year, supplied poor families with more food than the US does....

The Iraqi government announcement that monthly food rations will be cut by half has left many Iraqis asking how they can survive.

The government also wants to reduce the number of people depending on the rationing system by five million by June 2008.

Iraq’s food rations system was introduced by the Saddam Hussein government in 1991 in response to the UN economic sanctions. Families were allotted basic foodstuffs monthly because the Iraqi Dinar and the economy collapsed.

The sanctions, imposed after Saddam Hussein ordered the invasion of Kuwait, were described as “genocidal” by Denis Halliday, then UN humanitarian coordinator in Iraq. Halliday quit his post in protest against the U.S.-backed sanctions.

The sanctions killed half a million Iraqi children, and as many adults, according to the UN. They brought malnutrition, disease, and lack of medicines. Iraqis became nearly completely reliant on food rations for survival. The programme has continued into the U.S.-led occupation.

But now the U.S.-backed Iraqi government has announced it will halve the essential items in the ration because of “insufficient funds and spiralling inflation.”

The cuts, which are to be introduced in the beginning of 2008, have drawn widespread criticism. The Iraqi government is unable to supply the rations with several billion dollars at its disposal, whereas Saddam Hussein was able to maintain the programme with less than a billion dollars.


One more Iraqi loss...but then, do you really think Bush and Cheney care?

Has this been reported by the main stream media in the US? Probably not!

Have you heard it being addressed by those oh-so-caring presidential candidates...of either party
?

I wish some of our Democratic hopefuls would address it, but can't you see what the Rs would do if they did?

After all, we are a 'Christian' nation, aren't we? And as Christians our first duty is to ignore the teachings of Jesus.

CNN has it all laid out--Jesus would love the death penality, war, and of course starving helpless people. I don't like CNN's Jesus.

Andrew Olmsted, who also posted here as G'Kar, was killed yesterday in Iraq. Andy gave me a post to publish in the event of his death; the last revisions to it were made in July.

When I was young, I was smart, but the older I got, the more I realized just how dumb I was in comparison to truly smart people. But, to my credit, I think, I was at least smart enough to pay attention to the people with real brains and even occasionally learn something from them. It has been joy and a pleasure having the opportunity to do this.

This gives one a small taste of what it is like to lose a person one love's unexpectedly. Not that any of us needs to be reminded. But this is happening again and again, and will continue unless humankind wakes up.

I am not holding my breath.

Warning--keep the Kleenex handy.

Another sad story from another deluded human. It is really hard to read this kind of confession and not feel sorry for him. Being brought up in a country that feeds bullshit to its people and then have to read his confessions about his brainwashing is truly sad.

Quote:
Believe it or not, one of the things I will miss most is not being able to blog any longer. The ability to put my thoughts on (virtual) paper and put them where people can read and respond to them has been marvelous, even if most people who have read my writings haven't agreed with them. If there is any hope for the long term success of democracy, it will be if people agree to listen to and try to understand their political opponents rather than simply seeking to crush them.


His one real escape from being propagandized all his life was to reach out to others to compare his state of being with others. It is the only way we can truly compare our knowledge and growth. Thank the creators for the web which has brought our experiences together so we can compare our thoughts and see where we agree or disagree. He seems to be fixated by fiction as his many quotes would show, but that in itself helps to explain the myths we believe that make us do the things we do and think we are correct in doing them.

I started to read his take on anarchism and realized that he has accepted the rhetoric of American culture . He might as well have been talking about Communism or Socialism the way he went on about it. Instruction and obedience are well planted in his psyche.

Quote:
On a similar note, while you're free to think whatever you like about my life and death, if you think I wasted my life, I'll tell you you're wrong. We're all going to die of something. I died doing a job I loved. When your time comes, I hope you are as fortunate as I was.


Love of job is no excuse for a happy death. Hopefully he died a quick death and felt nothing. That is the best we can hope for. To die miserably in some foreign sand defending all the wrong reasons is a terrible way to go. He was just discovering his life when it was taken from him. If this is being noble and defending your country, then what is waste in this life?

Poor soul had his own life taken from him from the point of his birth. Then they took away the rest of his life by convincing him he was doing the right thing. Amazing what creative brainwashing can accomplish when it is a lifetime experience.

Wonder if he was "Born on the 4th of July" too.

I am trying to read the comments on that page. The blogger was Major Andrew Olmsted and his death hasn't hit the page I take names from for the American Deaths thread.

The comments are heartrending. This man made a lot of friends with his blogs. They are all crushed. A few family members have posted too.

I never read his blog but apparently it was a hit with many people. If he had a perspective on the war I don't know what it was. Some of the commenters have said their views and been hammered for doing so. Maj. Olmsted requested no politics in comments if his final post were to be submitted to the site.

But you can feel the sadness and disbelief in those comments.

So sad. So very sad.

121 Veterans Have Been Charged With Murder Since Returning Home

The New York Times has revealed at least 121 veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been charged with committing murder after they returned home from duty. The Times said the numbers indicated a nearly 90 percent increase in homicides involving active-duty military personnel and new veterans since the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan. The Times said about one-third of the victims were spouses, girlfriends, children or other relatives. The Times reports that while many of the veterans showed signs of combat trauma, they were often not evaluated for or diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder until after the homicides.

I am half done with 'Blackwater Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army.'

My brain feels like it is now composed of......blackwater. This situation simply could hardly be more dire...or complex...or convulated...screwed up.

2000: America is in a minor recession which it finds itself in every few years. Percentage wise very few people are deeply worried.

2001: Four airplanes crash and claim the lives of about 3000 people. This tragic event somehow morphs into...

2008: The world now largely hates us with the exception of....Israel. The debt has exploded. The dollor has lost 60% of its value. The country has evolved into a full blown police state..though targets are still selective. The national intelligentsia has mobilized into a large scale effort to flee. Canada gets so flooded with attempts at finding refuge that requests for information go ignored. Corruption of electonic voting machines becomes a major issue. The president and vice president are proven to be guilty of criminal behavior that makes Clinton and Nixon look positively angelic. Nothing of significance happens. The nations manufacturing base has faltered and crumbled. Our youth do not trust the government and honest people are very hard pressed to give them a reason to do so. Faux News has somehow become a leading news source despite the fact they are clearly pawns of the neocons. Again...there is no national outrage beyond some indignant internet blogging that is written off to the "tin foil hat crowd."

The elite takes note of the above and ques up well funded Presidential candidates all offering more of the same.

There are many ways to suffer from war. This is a letter from an Al-Jazeera camera man who has been held in Guantánamo Bay for six years.

Heaven help the people who work at Air America.

Is Blackwater a CIA front? I wonder about that. But I wonder about dozens of things.

Their CEO, Eric Prinz, took a CIA entrance lie detector test. The results were supposedly 'inconclusive.' It does seem that Eric was entranced by employment with the agency around 2001.

Blackwater, CIA, Bush etc are easy to talk about. The real powers are silent and their agenda does not look very pretty.

It looks like a replay of the 3rd Riich to me. Substitute muslims for jews of course. Slightly different methodology. Iraqis no longer ponder if they will die, it is more a matter of when they will die.

Next stop.....Iran.

Blackwater is truly scary. They are 'working' in the U.S. as well as other countries.

Prinz was a Bush crony and built his empire when W came into the picture. Isn't it wonderful how our tax monies are being spent???

Washington Post

Soldier Suicides at Record Level By Dana Priest
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, January 31, 2008


Whiteside's personal tragedy is part of an alarming phenomenon in the Army's ranks: Suicides among active-duty soldiers in 2007 reached their highest level since the Army began keeping such records in 1980, according to a draft internal study obtained by The Washington Post. Last year, 121 soldiers took their own lives, nearly 20 percent more than in 2006.

At the same time, the number of attempted suicides or self-inflicted injuries in the Army has jumped sixfold since the Iraq war began. Last year, about 2,100 soldiers injured themselves or attempted suicide, compared with about 350 in 2002, according to the U.S. Army Medical Command Suicide Prevention Action Plan.

The Army was unprepared for the high number of suicides and cases of post-traumatic stress disorder among its troops, as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have continued far longer than anticipated. Many Army posts still do not offer enough individual counseling and some soldiers suffering psychological problems complain that they are stigmatized by commanders. Over the past year, four high-level commissions have recommended reforms and Congress has given the military hundreds of millions of dollars to improve its mental health care, but critics charge that significant progress has not been made.

The conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan have placed severe stress on the Army, caused in part by repeated and lengthened deployments. Historically, suicide rates tend to decrease when soldiers are in conflicts overseas, but that trend has reversed in recent years. From a suicide rate of 9.8 per 100,000 active-duty soldiers in 2001 -- the lowest rate on record -- the Army reached an all-time high of 17.5 suicides per 100,000 active-duty soldiers in 2006.

Last year, twice as many soldier suicides occurred in the United States than in Iraq and Afghanistan.


Maybe if we stopped wars?

I think what the numbers show is if the soldiers are involved in real meaningful wars the suicides decrease. It is involvement in the criminal enterprise we know as Iraq (an illegal invasion and occupation—never a war; or least a war as defined in any moral or ethical code for a just war) that is driving the rates to increase so dramatically. Most military personnel join out of a sense of duty and/or moral obligation; finding that their service is squandered by the liars that are the Bush criminal cabal must not set well. Unfortunately, it has taken the deaths of far too many for this realization to occur. No amount of money can provide the needed remedy—don't send these young people to commit the crimes. This is why taking impeachment off the table is a further crime; the SOBs think they are going to get away scot free.

You mean like WW2? Where a high % of returning veterans were diagnosed with Mental Disorders similar to the unknown PTSD?

The term meaningful war is a misnomer indeed and at best a conundrum. Name one meaningful war which wasn't about lying, cheating and stealing for the colonizer! Reminding us that war has meaning is
Quote:
a recovery of historical memories that a psychoanalyst might term a "return of the repressed."
Well we are the repressed and the oppressed so what else should we do but love, honour and obey - swallow deception? Yummy!

Seems it doesn't stop with age-
http://www.vetshome.com/ptsd_in_ww2_vets.htm
Quote:
Significant numbers of World War II veterans with no previous history of mental health problems were starting to suffer nightmares, a psychiatrist said today.

Dr Michael Robertson, the director of the Mayo-Wesley Centre for mental health at Taree in NSW, said veterans in their eighties were showing signs of late onset Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) more than half a century after their war service ended.

While cases of PTSD after war service are not unusual, Dr Robertson said there had been little research into older veterans
suffering symptoms decades later "largely because it probably hasn't emerged yet".

"We're ... seeing a large number of older veterans. Quite a lot of them are presenting with nightmares, intrusive memories of the
war which are quite disabling for them," Dr Robertson told AAP.

"This is the first time that they've ever had anything like this in
their life and this has been corroborated by their spouse.

"Inquiry has found that there's really been no evidence of mental
ill-health up until this point."

Something Vietnam vets will be looking forward to as well?

Quote:
He said an example was a World War II veteran who tried to rescue a number of sailors from a sinking ship only to watch them perish.

"He had to be hospitalised when the Kursk submarine tragedy was on," said Dr Robertson, who presented his findings to the
College of Psychiatrists congress in Canberra today.

"It's just very sad that these older fellows went through so much and they're having to spend their last years terrorised by it."

The problems appear to be triggered when a veteran retires, becomes ill or suffers family problems.


The history of the term goes way back, but some of the terms recounted are-
Quote:
The mental anguish resulting from combat is well chronicled. After the Civil War, it was known as “soldier's heart.” In World War One it was labeled” shellshock.” Veterans of World War Two and Korea were described as suffering from “battle fatigue.” After Vietnam it became Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

The American Psychiatric Association officially acknowledged PTSD in 1980. Symptoms include emotional numbing, quick tempers and re-experiencing traumatic situations through flashbacks. Such Symptoms may not surface for years but emerge with a disruptive vengeance.

People with acute PTSD typically recover in three to six months, but chronic PTSD can remain for decades. Combat situations in Afghanistan and Iraq are already generating psychological casualties at an alarming rate.
http://intrepidliberaljournal.blogspot. ... ivors.html

You'd think old soldiers just fade away without regrets and so no one ever really gave credence or any research into what was really happening.

Quote:
"From a psychological point of view, people regard old age as a time when you have to put your life in perspective, you have
to put everything in order, so perhaps late in life they're having to confront things that happen because in the early parts of their
adulthood they've been working or they've been too busy.

"Others might think that perhaps the brain ages. There's a part of the brain called the hippocampus which starts to degenerate,
maybe there's something to do with that.

"As in most things, we tend to say there's biological, psychological and social reasons why these things happen."


Meanwhile we continue to believe in just, meaningful wars as our leaders reap the profits and the people continue to be propagandized as to their real purpose and in the end still suffer from their decisions, fed usually by lust for revenge, anger, hatred- in other words- FEAR.

Just so happens I got an elders saying today on this very subject-

Quote:
"In sharing, in loving all and everything, one people naturally found a due portion of the thing they sought, while in fearing, the other found need of conquest."
--Chief Luther Standing Bear, SIOUX
There are two systems of thought that are available for us to choose from. One is the love-thought system and the other is the fear- thought system. If we choose love, we will see the laws, principles and values of the Creator. If we choose fear, the results will be so paralyzing that it will cause us to take over and not rely on the Great Spirit. The fear-thought system will automatically cause attack, conflict, need to control over others. The love-thought system seeks peace of mind, unity and causes us to be love seekers.

Great Spirit, today let me see only love.
Meditate over that one and find its fault. Asking us to be emotional in a positive sense is not in our governments totalitarian mind control vocabulary.

Seems that the only meaningful war would be a war against war and end it forever. Perhaps the true meaning of war is absence of love and an overbearing preponderance of fear defeats all reality, while creating a grim reality of human primitive psychotic behaviour.

No wonder they send us to war- they don't trust our dark side, so they let us practice at war regularily,and get good and disgusted by it so we don't turn it onto them, our real enemies to peace.

But then again it could be "because there's biological, psychological and social reasons why these things happen"- like our misguiding family values.

That is certainly a main wedge our leaders use against us to enact their fears after all, and fear is the great mindkiller that leads to wars, meaningful or not.

So who really suffers in war seems to have no end for the participants, those brave souls who give their bodies and minds as well to the nightmare of our dark sides desires. We have to feed on flesh and brains, like the walking dead we are. Who says we don't perform blood sacrifices! So what if a few people suffer- the ends justify the means, for the greater good of that 1% who profit and promote the existence of meaningful wars.

What did Bernays say about the masses- stupid and idiots are two of his favorite terms. Dangerous and monstrous was the reason he saw to keep them that way. I guess we are what we are after all and believing that war is meaningful certainly describes those four words pretty well when describing We, the people. They have us figured out, so why can't we figure their game out? Oh yeah, right- stupid and idiots seems to sum it up rather succinctly.

"But when if you give them free will, you have to lie to them." - Bernays

I found this article about propaganda and the First world war- my highlights-
Quote:
... from Harold Lasswell’s Propaganda Technique in World War I (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1927):

Propaganda is a concession to the rationality of the modern world. A literate world, a reading world, a schooled world, prefers to thrive on argument and news. It is sophisticated to the extent of using print; and he that takes to print shall live or perish by the Press. All the apparatus of diffused erudition popularizes the symbols and forms of pseudo-rational appeal; the wolf of propaganda does not hesitate to masquerade in the sheepskin. All the voluble men of the day—writers, reporters, editors, preachers, lecturers, teachers, politicians—are drawn into the service of propaganda to amplify a master voice. All is conducted with the decorum and the trappery of intelligence, for this is a rational epoch, and demands its raw meat cooked and garnished by adroit and skillful chefs.

Propaganda is a concession to the willfulness of the age. The bonds of personal loyalty and affection which bound a man to his chief have long since dissolved Monarchy and class privilege have gone the way of all flesh, and the idolatry of the individual passes for the official religion of democracy. It is an atomized world, in which individual whims have wider play than ever before, and it requires more strenuous exertions to co-ordinate and unify than formerly. The new antidote to willfulness is propaganda. If the mass will be free of chains of iron, it must accept its chains of silver. If it will not love, honor and obey, it must not expect to escape seduction.

Propaganda is a reflex to the immensity, the rationality and willfulness of the modern world. It is the new dynamic of society, for power is subdivided and diffused, and more can be won by illusion than by coercion. It has all the prestige of the new and provokes all the animosity of the baffled. To illuminate the mechanisms of propaganda is to reveal the secret springs of social action, and to expose to the most searching criticism our prevailing dogmas of sovereignty, of democracy, of honesty, and of the sanctity of individual opinion. (pp. 198-199)

http://nielsenhayden.com/makinglight/ar ... 07671.html

Back to Bernays-
Quote:
"If we understand the mechanisms and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing it," he argued in Propaganda, one of his first books. In a later book, he coined the term "engineering of consent" to describe his technique for controlling the masses.

"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society," Bernays argued. "Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. . . . In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons . . . who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind."

This definition of "democratic society" is itself a contradiction in terms--a theoretical attempt to reconcile rule by the few with the democratic system which threatened (and still threatens) the privileges and powers of the governing elite. On occasion, Bernays himself recoiled from the anti-democratic implications of his theory.
http://www.prwatch.org/prwissues/1999Q2/bernays.html
The father of Spin indeed!

America has made its fortunes on the backs of slaves and has waged its wars overtly and covertly since its inception. If you want to prove to the Ron Paul supporters that they are being fooled by the belief that the constitution must be adhered to, then why did the founding fathers engage in wars for wealth and land against foreigners if they warned about foreign incursions? America's wealth and great power would not be realized without involvements both domestic and foreign. Too bad everyone has figured out the great lies and now has forced American Imperialism out where all can see it.

That people pull war out of the closet whenever they need it is the real tragedy, for eventually who loses at war may be you, or you, or Y-O-USA. Now the only people being deceived seem to be the American people and boy, are we up for a rude awakening. The only meaningful part and justifiably so seems to be those who stand up to our fluid modernity and its tsunami effects. But then again, how dare they stand up to us- we're here to help them. :roll: Oh right they're terrorists and insurgents, when they're not us or on our side and defending their country from our modern colonizing practices where we pretend to be the defenders and somehow we, the people(read-stupids) believe that shit.

I guess we are the real losers at war as the participants who give our rulers the justification to use us as slaves for their designs. After all, they've been getting away with it for years, telling us about meaningful wars, and getting us to do the fighting is their favorite deception and we swallow it every time. What supreme BS.
