Commentary :: Human Rights
Which side are you on?
27 May 2005
We are on the edge of a precipice. We may have already been pushed into the abyss. It really depends on who is in control.
The strike on the twin towers in New York and the Pentagon on September 11, 2002 may have been all that was needed to defeat America militarily. America, as we have known it, may have already disappeared into the mists of history.

America has, in the past few years, arrested people and placed them in concentration camps without charges or trial. America has taken it upon itself to use a standard of pre-emptive strikes on nations and on individuals. Once that happens, once a person is arrested for what he or she is likely to do, or will do, a line has been crossed. And once one nation takes it upon itself to strike other nations for what they may do in the future, the same dark line is crossed.

But we cannot be careless about equating war itself with specific war crimes like torture or human rights abuses. To paraphrase the Nuremberg tribunals, war contains within it all the war crimes. Once an invasion starts, once a war begins, the ultimate crime has been committed. And the people responsible for starting that war have committed the ultimate war crime.

On this side of that line we have messy societies. We have crime and problems like drug abuse and street gangs. We have known offenders lurking among us and we are waiting for them to harm somebody before we arrest them. We have political dissent and scores of oddballs performing all kinds of hocus-pocus rituals. We have kids with pins in their faces and trash on the streets.

We also have the freedom to write whatever the hell we want on Indymedia or advocate for the legalization of marijuana or same sex marriage. We can expect to not be spied on by the state and we can expect to remain generally unmolested by the state. We can also speak openly in favor smashing the infidels into the ground and replace their demonic society with a religious theocracy. We can associate with and hold meetings with people that are intent on replacing free society with a dictatorship. We can advocate for and strive for any political or religious society we want.

On the other side of the line there is little or no crime. There are no drug problems and criminals are arrested, killed, or controlled before they pull off the quantity of evil they manage to on this side of the line. The streets are clean and women, foriegners and homosexuals know their place. The trains run on time.

If we react to the enemies of freedom with tyranny, we have unwittingly conceded defeat. If those that want to destroy the principles of freedom can do so with terror, then the collective will of society is not on the side of freedom. It is on the side of security, cowardice, and despots. It is not on the side of rational authority because to do so, we must uphold the right of freedom for our enemies as much as our friends. This principle cannot be diluted or tampered with on the side of freedom.

Western law and western sensibilities have been forged long before the writing of the American Constitution. And through time, the progression of rational based laws and rational based institutions have developed to a point where the traditional authority of kings and superstition has been lost. The personal charisma of some leader cannot usurp the principles of rational authority. Laws and institutions have their bases on rationality and that is what legitimizes our laws.

When laws are forged through emotions or through the arbitrary dictums of one person or one group, we are in deep trouble. It is then that we enact the death penalty because some visceral reaction in our collective guts tells us ‘he deserves it’. It is then that we seek to jail the pedophile before he hurts somebody. It is then that we throw potential terrorists in jail with no trial and it is then that we agree that waging war on other countries will alleviate our timid and cowering souls.

Amnesty International has lambasted the United States for it’s human rights violations and war crimes in their recently published report for 2005. Amnesty says in the report, “The US administration’s treatment of detainees in the “war on terror” continued to display a marked ambivalence to the opinion of expert bodies such as the International Committee of the Red Cross and even of its own highest judicial body. Six months after the Supreme Court ruled that the federal courts had jurisdiction over the Guantánamo detainees, none had appeared in court. Detainees reportedly considered of high intelligence value remained in secret detention in undisclosed locations. In some cases their situation amounted to “disappearance”.”

It remains to be seen whether this trajectory away from progress, legitimate rational authority, freedom and human rights on the part of the United States is the sinister work of a small cabal that have taken the reigns of power or if it is the collective and cowardly will of the people. And it is more than the United States in question. Canada has instituted repressive ‘security certificates’ at the behest of W. Bush. Britain has implemented its own security laws in accordance with the American Patriot Act and other nations have followed suit. Undoubtedly, those that planned and carried out the attacks on 9-11 imagined that the impact of their terror would be enormous. They probably did not dream that the towers would actually fall to the ground. And in their wildest delusions of grandeur, they could not have dreamed that their act of terror would actually change the fundamental basis of what America (and other western nations) is and will be.

It is not too late and it is vital to all free societies that we have the courage to take on those that attack civilains with international and lawful tribunals and not war. And with the courage to uphold freedom; not through tyranny.

We must also bring their accomplices inside the American state to justice. When those that are responsible for the sudden appearance of torture in Guantanomo Bay, Abu Ghraib, and the practice of rendition are brought to justice with the full support of the American government and the American people, America will have stepped back from the twilight zone.

But for the ongoing carnage in Iraq, America may never be absolved. Some crimes can never be undone.

The Truth is clear. Aliens have invaded this land. Not the smelly ones, but the intelligent ones from outer space. We need to unite against them. They have come from afar to destroy earth and they have started with America, the strongest nation in the world. Note that they did not star with France, the weakest nation in the Galaxy. That's because the aliens want the French as food. They are more tender. I am on the side of humanity. We must rise up and fight these rotten so and sos to the points of thier pointy ears. How dare they mess with our vital bodily functions and our liquids.

I agree with everything you say,EXCEPT, that the attackers did'nt dream the towers would fall.
The plan was started in 1976, revised inDRebuilding America's Defenses" Stephen St. John (APFN June 10, 2004) writes, "Rabbi Zakheim rose to power over the Pentagon's labyrinthine, bottomless accounts, he co-authored an article entitled "Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources for a New Century" which was published by the neo-conservative think tank, The Project for a New American Century, in September 2000, exactly a year before 9/11; in this article, on page 51, it is stated that 'the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor'!" and carried out with joint cooperation of Israel's Mossad and High U.S. Official help! SHOCKING! Read my hidden article, Stop the Octopus Israel Now, and the article Hiding Articles in the Boston indymedia today!

"We also have the freedom to write whatever the hell we want on Indymedia or advocate for the legalization of marijuana or same sex marriage. We can expect to not be spied on by the state and we can expect to remain generally unmolested by the state"

This is ABSOLUTELY untrue. That you believe that we are not spied on or molested by the state for our writings, you are a fucking moron.

If you think the Patriot act 2 won't be dangerous, think of this: It would give the FBI the right (without warrant) to seize your computer if "you have LINKS" to terrorism, gag you and throw you into one of their already made Extermination camps. Brilliant solution to the problem of the Internet. They keep only the apathetic Americans happy to watch Survivor and its commercials, and who willingly pay more taxes for more wars, and they don't have to get rid of the Internet which would be very bad for Global business!
Who Cares?
"The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining supercapitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control...Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent."

"At least five if not six training exercises were in operation in the days leading up to and on the morning of 9/11. This meant that NORAD radar screens showed as many as 22 hijacked airliners at the same time. NORAD had been briefed that this was part of the exercise drill and therefore normal reactive procedure was forestalled and delayed. The large numbers of 'blips' on NORAD screens that displayed both real and 'drill' hijacked planes explain why confused press reports emerged hours after the attack stating that up to eight planes had been hijacked. The drill scenario also explains a comment made by air traffic control personnel which was featured in a July 2004 BBC television report. The controller is told that a hijacked airliner is heading for New York and responds by saying, "is this real world or an exercise?" What were the drills called and what was their nature? Associated Press later had to admit the fact that the CIA were running drills of crashing planes into buildings on the morning of 9/11.

Why should we hear about body bags and deaths and how many, what day it's gonna happen? It's not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?"

"American soldiers are dumb animals to be used in the furtherance of 'our' foreign policy. Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order.

It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this 'scenario', individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government. NAFTA is a major stepping stone to the New World Order."

Plans for Civilian Internment: Stalag 17--American Style



[SiaNews Note: A bit outdated, but not by much. An incredibly-detailed and important article.]
By Mary Louise
Along the Danube River in Austria about forty miles from Vienna, a prison camp called Stalag 17 was one of many prisoner of war facilities during WWII, containing wooden barracks surrounded by double fences of barbed wire and guard towers. The 1953 Billy Wilder film "Stalag 17" is a close reproduction of the actual facilities, although the actors were obviously not as hungry, dirty, and overcrowded as the real prisoners were.
Similar facilities exist in America, many in remote areas across our country adjacent to major highways, railroads, and airports. The infrastructure for incarcerating and executing resisters and dissenters in the coming American Holocaust has been already set up, according to the 1968 government plans code-named Operation Cable Splicer and Operation Garden Plot (FM 19-15), sub programs of the Rex 84 Program.
Field Manual 3-19.40 or FM 19-40 is the August 2001 version of Military Police Internment/Resettlement Operations. This publication supersedes the FM 19-40 of February 1976 and FM 19-60 of May 1986 by order of the Secretary of the Army signed by administrative assistant, Joel B. Hudson.
Pending the approval of the Army Chief of Staff, currently Eric. K. Shinseki, the military can detain and jail citizens en masse. Rex 84 called for many military bases to be closed and turned into prisons, based on the pretext that if a mass exodus of illegal aliens crossed the border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. A more honest and realistic scenario would be the detention of Americans.
Under "Rex" the President could declare a state of emergency, empowering the head of FEMA to take control of the internal infrastructure of the U.S. and suspend the Constitution...

The President could invoke Executive Orders 11000 through 11004 which would draft all citizens into work forces under governmental supervision, empower the postmaster to register all men, women, and children, seize all airports and aircraft, and seize all housing to establish forced relocation of all citizens.
Congressman Henry Gonzales clarified the question of the existence of civilian detention camps by stating, "The truth is yes - you do have these standby provisions and the plans are here...whereby you could, in the name of stopping terrorism...evoke the military and arrest Americans and put them in detention camps."
Equipped with flexible "military operations in urban terrain" and "operations other than war" doctrine, lethal and "less-than-lethal" high-tech weaponry, US "armed forces", and "elite" militarized police units are being trained to eradicate "disorder", "disturbance", and "civil disobedience" in America. The American corporate/military directorship has the power to enforce its definition of "disorder" and sees our Constitutional Republic as a threat and permanent counter-revolution as a "national security" requirement.
Their rationale for civil disturbance "tactics and techniques" contingency planning is simple: self-preservation. They are systematically organizing to protect their interests, profits, and plots against growing opposition to their criminal activities, while rapidly consolidating an infrastructure of repression designed to "suppress rebellion against the authority of the United States".
According to the Pentagon, "US forces deployed to assist federal and local authorities during times of civil disturbance will follow use-of-force policy found in Department of Defense Civil Disturbance Plan - Garden Plot." The United States Air Force Civil Disturbance Plan 55-2 - Garden Plot, is the implementing and supporting plan for the Department of the Army Civil Disturbance Plan - Garden Plot (March 1984), which provides for the employment of USAF forces in assisting civil authorities with airlift and logistical support.
The Amtrak Railcar Repair Facility at Beech Grove, Indianapolis, contains at least ten maintenance barns covering 129 acres, two separate fences with the tops leaning inward, high security NSA-style people turnstiles, and high intensity/security lighting for 24-hour operation. One barn is large enough to put four box cars. Under martial law, this box car (gas chamber) facility will be used for the handling and execution of category RED and BLUE people, hence becoming a death camp.
The box car building fence is marked with special 'RED/BLUE Zone' signs that correspond to the RED/BLUE Lists which surfaced in June and July of 1996, when an FBI agent got hold of the Region Three BLUE List from a CIA agent and found his own name on it. The Red List is for pick-up and execution before preparations for martial law are initiated and the BLUE List is for execution at a later date, within six weeks of actual martial law declaration. There are no 're-education' plans for either category, just execution.
They will take people from their homes and put them in a black van, drive them to a helicopter that will fly them to a big CH-47 Chinook helicopter.... all black, unmarked, and illegally operating under the Treaty of Open Skies. Then people will be flown to one of 38 cities to board a 747, 737, or 727 and taken to a temporary detention facility, where if RED listed will be taken to a red camp.
This RED/BLUE List policy parallels the Nazi plan by Heinz Hohne in "The Story of the Nazi SS: The Order of the Death's Head" (published 1966) and is the same blueprint the Nazi's used for rounding up people in 1934. The horrors of Nazi death camps are in store for Americans and yet there are those who don't think it can happen again..... especially here in the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.
The Indianapolis News ran an article on January 27, 1995 entitled 'Amtrak Lays off 212 at Beech Grove: 170 Lose Jobs at Maintenance Center Today' with the following information, "Late last year, Congress ordered Amtrak to spend at least $5.9 million patching holes in the roof and fixing masonry on the walls of the giant machine sheds at Beech Grove" which leads to the question, why? These buildings have been 'sealed' airtight and constructed to allow gas to be blown into all the buildings via the newly installed, two-story, hot air heating furnances so why perform renovations worth $6 million and then lay off people? Because the 'slots' of the 212 Americans who were laid off will be filled with foreigners, who will have no qualms about gassing Americans in the newly renovated gas chambers, in the Dachau and Auschwitz of America.
In 1996, the US Army Military Police Corps restructured its four combat support missions into five functions, which describe Military Police capabilities in support of US forces deployed worldwide. These functions are maneuver and mobility support, area security, law and order, internment/resettlement, and police intelligence operations. While our own troops are sent all over the globe, who do you think will be minding the store? Foreign troops have been brought and trained to do just that, as they will not have the same objections to imprisoning Americans that American troops would be inclined to have.
Unlike enemy prisoner of war (EPW) and civilian internee operations in the past, internment/resettlement (I/R) operations include additional detained persons and the handling, 'protecting', and accounting for dislocated civilians as well as conducting battlefield confinement of US military prisoners. A civilian internee (CI) is a person who is interned during armed conflict or occupation if considered a security risk or if 'protection' is needed because of committing an offense (insurgent, criminal) against the detaining power, a dislocated civilian (DC) is a civilian who has left his/her home for various reasons, and a displaced person (DP) has been dislocated because of war, natural disaster, or political/economic turmoil.
Besides FEMA, the other federal agencies that provide advice, assistance, and resources to plan, implement, and accomplish internal settlement operations are: Departments of Transportation, Agriculture, and Justice, US Agency for International Development, Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance, US Information Agency, Public Health Service, and Immigration and Naturalization Service.
There are three principle types of civilian organizations which are international (IO), nongovernmental (NGO), and international humanitarian (IHO). An international organization is established by intergovernmental agreements and operates at the international level which includes the United Nations of course. The UN is involved in the entire spectrum of "humanitarian assistance" including UN Disaster Relieve Coordinator (UNDRC) and UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The UNDRC coordinates assistance to persons compelled to leave their homes because of disasters and the UNHCR facilitates repatriation, reintegration, or asylum of refugees among other things.
The internment of civilians is authorized and directed, as determined by US military to be necessary. The internees are to be escorted to the receiving area where the internment process begins. The processing actions start in the processing area with being assigned temporary internment serial numbers (ISNs), removing and labeling clothing, showers and haircuts, medical evaluation, immunizations and reimmunizations as prescribed, and medical records with dates and places of inspection, immunization, and disinfection. The movement of the internee will be supervised to the next station, where basic personal items will be issued before being escorted to the processing line, to be assigned a permanent ISN and ID documents are initiated. Then, it is on to being fingerprinted, photographed, and issued an ID card. After CIs have been formally processed into the internment facility and entered into the Internment/Resettlement Information System (IRIS) database, the internment/resettlement information center (IRIC) forwards the information to the national IRIC for dissemination to 'protecting' powers.
An internee committee is a form of self-government within a facility that will be allowed in order to minimize the impression that CIs are prisoners.
When use of force is deemed necessary, to 'protect' internees/facilities and to control unruly and rebellious internee populations, squad to platoon sized QRFs (quick-reaction forces) are trained and organized to respond to civil disturbances inside and outside the facility. The application of any or all of the priorities of force depends on the situation encountered. The six priorities of force are verbal persuasion, show of force, chemical aerosol irritants, use of physical force other than weapons fire, presentation of deadly force, and deadly force. Deadly force is authorized for self-defense, protection of assets, serious offenses of violence or threats, arrests and apprehensions, and escapes.
Non Lethal Weapons (NLWs) are designed to reinforce deterrence to accomplish discouraging hostile actions, limit escalation, protect US forces, and take military action in situations where the use of lethal force is not the preferred. The two riot control agents to be used to quell riots and disperse crowds are CS (O-Chlorobenzylidine-Malonitrile) and OC (Oleoresin Capsicum). The latter is derived from a blend of 300 varieties of pepper plants and 750 times more powerful than CS.

Because the 'slots' of the 212 Americans who were laid off will be filled with foreigners, who will have no qualms about gassing Americans in the newly renovated gas chambers, in the Dachau and Auschwitz of America.

In 1996, the US Army Military Police Corps restructured its four combat support missions into five functions, which describe Military Police capabilities in support of US forces deployed worldwide. These functions are maneuver and mobility support, area security, law and order, internment/resettlement, and police intelligence operations. While our own troops are sent all over the globe, who do you think will be minding the store? Foreign troops have been brought and trained to do just that, as they will not have the same objections to imprisoning Americans that American troops would be inclined to have.

Unlike enemy prisoner of war (EPW) and civilian internee operations in the past, internment/resettlement (I/R) operations include additional detained persons and the handling, 'protecting', and accounting for dislocated civilians as well as conducting battlefield confinement of US military prisoners. A civilian internee (CI) is a person who is interned during armed conflict or occupation if considered a security risk or if 'protection' is needed because of committing an offense (insurgent, criminal) against the detaining power, a dislocated civilian (DC) is a civilian who has left his/her home for various reasons, and a displaced person (DP) has been dislocated because of war, natural disaster, or political/economic turmoil.

Besides FEMA, the other federal agencies that provide advice, assistance, and resources to plan, implement, and accomplish internal settlement operations are: Departments of Transportation, Agriculture, and Justice, US Agency for International Development, Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance, US Information Agency, Public Health Service, and Immigration and Naturalization Service.

There are three principle types of civilian organizations which are international (IO), nongovernmental (NGO), and international humanitarian (IHO). An international organization is established by intergovernmental agreements and operates at the international level which includes the United Nations of course. The UN is involved in the entire spectrum of "humanitarian assistance" including UN Disaster Relieve Coordinator (UNDRC) and UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The UNDRC coordinates assistance to persons compelled to leave their homes because of disasters and the UNHCR facilitates repatriation, reintegration, or asylum of refugees among other things.

The internment of civilians is authorized and directed, as determined by US military to be necessary. The internees are to be escorted to the receiving area where the internment process begins. The processing actions start in the processing area with being assigned temporary internment serial numbers (ISNs), removing and labeling clothing, showers and haircuts, medical evaluation, immunizations and reimmunizations as prescribed, and medical records with dates and places of inspection, immunization, and disinfection. The movement of the internee will be supervised to the next station, where basic personal items will be issued before being escorted to the processing line, to be assigned a permanent ISN and ID documents are initiated. Then, it is on to being fingerprinted, photographed, and issued an ID card. After CIs have been formally processed into the internment facility and entered into the Internment/Resettlement Information System (IRIS) database, the internment/resettlement information center (IRIC) forwards the information to the national IRIC for dissemination to 'protecting' powers.

An internee committee is a form of self-government within a facility that will be allowed in order to minimize the impression that CIs are prisoners.
When use of force is deemed necessary, to 'protect' internees/facilities and to control unruly and rebellious internee populations, squad to platoon sized QRFs (quick-reaction forces) are trained and organized to respond to civil disturbances inside and outside the facility. The application of any or all of the priorities of force depends on the situation encountered. The six priorities of force are verbal persuasion, show of force, chemical aerosol irritants, use of physical force other than weapons fire, presentation of deadly force, and deadly force. Deadly force is authorized for self-defense, protection of assets, serious offenses of violence or threats, arrests and apprehensions, and escapes.

Non Lethal Weapons (NLWs) are designed to reinforce deterrence to accomplish discouraging hostile actions, limit escalation, protect US forces, and take military action in situations where the use of lethal force is not the preferred. The two riot control agents to be used to quell riots and disperse crowds are CS (O-Chlorobenzylidine-Malonitrile) and OC (Oleoresin Capsicum). The latter is derived from a blend of 300 varieties of pepper plants and 750 times more powerful than CS.

There are more pleasant things that I would much rather discuss in addition to pursuing personal lifetime dreams and goals, however with tyranny overshadowing the American Dream, it is impossible to go on with business as usual, much less making dreams come true. In school we were required read to "The Diary of Anne Frank", "1984", "Brave New world", and "Animal Farm" which led to an interest in war movies to gain a better understanding of WWI, WWII, and the Vietnam War.

A question that haunted me was how could Hitler rise to power with his satanic/occult fascism and why did the German people allow it. I learned long ago that many Germans and Christians died along with the Jewish population, and what happened in Nazi Germany could also happen in America if people were not vigilant. Stalag 17 type facilities are in America and just waiting for occupants, only this time it will succeed on a grand scale unless multitudes of decent people refuse to accept or condone tyranny and death, while there is still time and while we still can.
