United States of Amnesia
From an arab-american anarchist,
One of the greater threat is the level of passivity and ignorance (among US and to some extent european white people) concerning US and western policy. It makes easy for the corporation and the state to push forward their totalitarian agenda through brainwashing media.

Make no mistake: Bin Laden (and Saddam Hussein, and the saudi arabia regime and most of the islamist-fascist groups and most of the arab dictatorship) have been created by the US. In latin america the US rogue state formed and used right-wing regimes and murders to kill and destroy all progressive forces, organized labor etc.
In the arab and muslim world they created the islamist to destroy progressive, feminist or marxist groups. I don't like marxist bullshit but that's not hte question here.

Just one example amongst too many : during the 80's the US state gave the permission to their best friend saddam hussein to exterminate the kurds in irak, because of the marxist PUK.
And the US-Tool Saddam Hussein bombed thousands of humans with chemicals for US CAPITALIST, MILITARIST and IMPERIALIST INTERESTS. This is just one example of the
bloody, cynical and fascist US policy.

All the media pigs, calling for war crimes against arab and muslim populations DENY this fact, they lie as they've always done. And their deny reminds me the deny of shoah, it reminds me the deny of european colonial genocides, it reminds the deny of slavery.

During the 30's many parts of the state and many capitalists in the US approved Hitler agenda. In US schools do they remind that many US corporations were working with the nazis ? Do they remind the anti-jewish mood of many prominent US state or army leader? Do they remind that many high rank nazis were welcomed in US and Kanada?

Do they remind that the US capitalist elite approved and helped the 'class cleansing' of european progressive by the fascists regimes, from spain to italia, from germany to hungary ?
Do they remind that nazis were following italian fascists ?
And "fascists" comes from "fascio". The fascio were small leagues of former italian soldiers who fought during 1st world war and felt frustration since the end of the war.
The movement developped when money and mainstream media attention came from the italian capitalists.
Indeed the workers, anarchists, marxists, unions were strong and they started occupying work places in the cities, expropriating big landowners in the country. The capitalist class threatened used the tool to break "reds" and anarchists: the fascists.
The european fascist speech mixed social frustration, love for social order and religious state, submission to mythic authority, anti-progressive, anti-jewish agenda, colonialism and racial superiority.
Amerikkka started fighting nazis ONLY when the economic world order was threatened by the former nazi friend.

We shall not fall into the reactionnary-binarist-emotive trend that some try to spread, even on indymedia...

If imperialist western agenda goes on, we can expect other disgusting bloodshed by islamist-US puppet and then many arab-muslim people, US people of color and political opponents could pay a high price.
Get ready for self defense...
Educate and organize.

No war beetween nations, no peace beetwwen classes

Amnesia?

"their best friend saddam hussein to exterminate the kurds in irak, because of the marxist PUK.

Sorry mate but Saddam Hussein bombed thousands of humans with chemicals for IRAQI CAPITALIST, MILITARIST and IMPERIALIST INTERESTS. Life just doesn't revolve around Washington, and just as the U.S. is not the ultimate source of good in the world it's not the ultimate source of evil either. Rather than being the tool of the U.S. or a creation of the U.S. (as it is also said by some)the Iraqi Ba'athist regime didn't reopen diplomatic relations with the U.S. until the mid-80ies, was listed by the State Department as a sponser of terrorism until 1982, and got most of it's military hardware from France and the U.S.S.R..
Yes for part of it's war with Iran (which was not inspired by Washington as I have demonstrated there were hostile realtions between Washington and Baghdad when the war began)
Iraq and the U.S. was allied, just for part of the Second World War Nazi Germany and the U.S.S.R. were allied and then for another part the U.S.S.R. and the U.S.A. were allied, but we don't think they were tools of each other do we?. Imperialism, Capitalism, Militarism and War do not have a nationality.
An interesting article about the revolts in Iraq in '91 is to found at: http://geocities.com/prac_history/tendays.html
