You're really asking what happened, or
just being sarcastic ? The My Lai massacre was
not accidental, but a command decision. An excellent
book on the subject of US military and CIA planned
extermination programs of that era is Douglas
Valentine's "The Phoenix Program". See also Cockburn
& St. Clair's "Whiteout" from which:
At 7:30 a.m. on March 16, 1968, Task Force Barker
descended on the small hamlet of My Lai in the Quang
Nai province of South Vietnam. Two squads cordoned off
the village and one, led by Lieutenant William Calley,
moved in and, accompanied by US Army Intelligence
officers, began to slaughter all the inhabitants, Over the
next eight hours US soldiers methodically killed 504 men,
women and children. As the late Ron Ridenhour, who first
exposed the massacre, said ... "Above My Lai were
helicopters filled with the entire command staff of the
brigade, division and task force. All three tiers in the chain
of command were literally flying overhead while it was going
on. It takes a long time to kill 600 people. It's a dirty job,
you might say. These guys were flying overhead from 7:30
in the morning, when the unit first landed and began to move
into those hamlets. They were there at least two hours, at
500 feet, 1000 feet and 1500 feet."
In defense of Operation Phoenix, Nixon is quoted by the NYT's
Seymour Hersch as insisting: "We must have more of this.

By the time I got downtown, they'd gotten tired of "preaching to the choir". There's not much of a need here in Eugene to "demonstrate" the illegitimacy of the PUPPET PRESIDENT (wild, strangelovian gestures) the thought of revolution excites me. Colin Powell got a sweet deal - he didn't have to mount a national campaign. The idiot did the footwork for him. So who's the boss? They've got the braintrust of the global oligarchy in the oval orfice now. the genius O'Niell, warrior Cheney and consumate politician Powell. Yes, consumate politician.

Newsroom (from BBC World - this cabinet choice got very limited press in the United States of Amerika!) Dubya... "...has nominated Paul O'Neill, the chairman of multi-national aluminum company Alcoa .. secretary of the treasury." and the democrats cheered! there is Bauxite in Indonesia - and decades of oppression. there is Bauxite in Africa - and decades of oppression. Wherever there is Bauxite, there is Alcoa. And decades of oppression. Globalization? Sieg Heil!
Posted by David Roknich at 6:36:00 PM
You've probably observed a mysterious silence on this Blog while all the Bush cabinet bozos matched by. The choice of former Alcoa CEO Paul O'Neill, amid cheers from Democrats ices the cake for me. Anyone reading a weblog dedicated to "Green Issues" and the "Fight against globalization" knows that Alcoa has been key to our systematic oppression of South America. It's clear at this point that our hemisphere is lost to fascism, and our only hope is with those who were brave enough and conscious enough to put their lives on the line in Seattle and Prague.

Top Stories at Netscape.com "a District of Columbia rule requiring that people have written permission from the chief of police to make speeches in public, had already been declared unconstitutional in 1976 by another judge." What does this teach us? Who would even try to attempt such a flagrant violation of our basic human rights? In our nations capital! Be ever vigilant or the NAZI police will encroach on your rights as an American citizen to the extent that they can. Never stop fighting back! Who would imagine that a chief of police should ever have to right to determine if a speech could be read in public! The fact that this HAD TO GO TO COURT is a sad commentary on Amerika! Who can afford to take issues of our basic freedoms to court again and again? Well, who can afford to buy the presidency by brainwashing and intimidating the populace? Without even getting a majority of votes? Don't sit still for fascism. We fought it in the 40s in spite of the Bush family's support of Adolph Hitler. They had property confiscated in 1943 for "trading with the enemy" and the records are still available from the department of state. Today they are. Next week they just might be classified. Give this administration the axe before it even gets started. This is a BASTARD administration and good reason for the type of revolution that Thomas Jefferson forsaw.

Absolute freedom of the press is the only chance that we have if we wish to evolve as a democracy. We need to act pre-emptively at every turn during the new reign of the family Bush or 10 years hence, we will no doubt be observing the 10th anniversary of some new, unthinkable outrage.

Alternatives.com During the Clinton administration we experienced a mild, respite from covert action against domestic organizations. It's over. Any group opposing white house policies will be infiltrated and harrassed by the exact same tactics that have been used during operations such as COINTELPRO. And don't look forward to any declassification of goverment documents. In fact, if you have any recently declassified materials, especially those that possibly implicate George Bush in the Letellier murder, it is important to share them as widely as possible, and archive them. They will be re-classified and perhaps "destroyed' in the same way that the declassified documents from MKULTRA were destroyed when Carter and his DCI, Admiral Turner. left office in 1980. Learn quick, or die.
Posted by David Roknich at 4:25:00 PM
Alternatives.com I'm reading a text they have about COINTELPRO revisited. for those of you for whom recent history has been erased - COINTELPRO was an attack by the government intellegence agencies on all forms of public protest against US policies. It began as a reaction to the anti-war movement and by the time it was exposed it had included among its victims leaders of every type of civil protest. Alternatives.com is an important resource for the dark days coming under the new fascist regime.
