Evil is faceless strangers,
living in distant neighborhood.
Evil has a wholesome, hometown face,
with merry eyes and an open smile.
Evil walks among us, wearing a mask
which looks like all our faces.
(From “The Mask” in “The Book of Counted Sorrows”)
There is an old Yiddish joke that the definition and a prime example of “Chutzpah” (grandiosity, smug entitlement, nerve, audacity) is someone who murders his parents and then begs the Court for mercy on the grounds that he is an orphan.” Another definition might be anyone in the ruling circles of the U.S. Imperium daring to lecture anyone about “human rights” or about the evils of WMDs. This is like: naming a shelter for battered women after the serial killer Ted Bundy; or a B’nai Brith “Himmler Award” for “Contributions to the Jewish People”; or the Nobel Peace Prize to Henry Kissinger who sabotaged the 1968 Paris Peace Talks and prolonged the Vietnam War another 5 years while getting the Nobel for supposedly helping to end it; or indeed the Nobel Peace Prize to President Obama for “Continuation and Doubling-down on Bush Policies–Giving Bush a Fourth Term”…
President Obama recently said, in support of launching acts of war against Syria, that because of the special nature and indiscriminate mass destruction of chemical weapons, the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian Regime would constitute a crossing of a red line that would bring and justify U.S. military actions against Syria. Anyone ever heard of “Agent Orange”? What is that if not chemical warfare? And in Vietnam and other parts of S.E. Asia where the U.S. dumped Agent Orange to defoliate jungles, children are still being born with birth defects from it and many hundreds of thousands or people, Vietnamese as well as American and allied veterans are living with the legacies of Agent Orange. And why does the likes of Fort Detrick exist?
It is an obscenity given the U.S. track record on human rights and uses of WMDs (ABCs or Atomic, Biological and Chemical Weapons) since the time of the Pilgrims: http://www.nativeweb.org/pages/legal/amherst/lord_jeff.html
“Birds of a Feather Flock Together”
Some may feel that this composite flag suggests memes that are unfair in suggesting comparisons with and between Nazism and British Colonialism/Imperialism and American Imperialism. But as this essay will unfold, the evidence and sources referred to will show to most reasonable people I believe, that these comparisons are quite fair and even understate a wider and even more ugly totality.
It was U.S. and British governments and intelligence that shielded from prosecution, wanted Nazi and Japanese war criminals, some involved in “medical experiments” to produce chemical, biological and atomic WMDs, after World War II; it was these same services that put other wanted Nazi and Japanese war criminals in high positions in the governments and intelligence services of various nations only because of their anti-Communist “credentials” (“The enemy of my enemy is my friend”)
These wanted war criminals wound up as high level politicians (one a Prime Minister of Japan), at high levels of the Yakuza and other underground criminal conspiracies, as professors at prestigious universities and as “scientists” developing Anglo-American WMDs at places like Ft. Detrick. Md a notorious place for the development of biological as well as chemical weapons of mass destruction that then continued this work as well as covered-up where some of the “data” had come from and how it had been obtained.
“Medical” and “Delivery” Experiments to Develop Chemical and Biological Weapons Using Human Beings and even Whole Cities Started by Japanese and German Fascists Continued in the U.S. and Elsewhere Post-War
PRIMARY SOURCE DOCUMENTS ON THE ANGLO-AMERICAN USE AND COVER-UPS OF “MEDICAL RESEARCH” OF JAPANESE AND NAZI WAR CRIMINALS
FINAL REPORT TO U.S. CONGRESS 2007 ON U.S. AND ALLIED COVER-UPS OF PROTECTION OF NAZI AND JAPANESE WAR CRIMINALS IN RETURN FOR “RESULTS” OF “MEDICAL EXPERIMENTS” TO DEVELOP CHEMCIAL, BIOLOGICAL AND ATOMIC WMDs CONDUCTED INCLUDING ON ALLIED POWs
ANGLO-AMERICAN ORIGINS OF AND INFLUENCES ON NAZI AND JAPANESE IDEOLOGIES, RACIAL THEORIES, “EUGENICS”, “MEDICAL EXPERIMENTS” AND WMDs and OTHER ATROCITIES
The origins of Nazi and Japanese fascist ideology, including “racial theories” have their origins of the imperial and colonial ideologies and racial theories of the British and American Imperiums. In fact both the Japanese and German fascist theorists, along with Hitler himself personally, acknowledged their “inspirations” to have been the historical experiences, policies and racial theories of British and American imperialism and colonialism in the above quotation from John Toland’s “Adolf Hitler Volumes I and II” and in “Hitler’s Secret Conversations” by Hugh Trevor-Roper.
From James Poole:
“He [Hitler] was very interested in the way the Indian population had rapidly declined due to epidemics and starvation when the United States government forced them to live on the reservations. He thought the American government’s forced migrations of the Indians over great distances to barren reservation land was a deliberate policy of extermination. Just how much Hitler took from the American example of the destruction of the Indian nations his hard to say; however, frightening parallels can be drawn. For some time Hitler considered deporting the Jews to a large ‘reservation’ in the Lubin area where their numbers would be reduced through starvation and disease.” (James Pool, Hitler and His Secret Partners: Contributions, Loot and Rewards, 1933-1945; Pocket Books, N.Y.op cit. p. 273-274).
“Having been a devoted reader of Karl May’s (sp?) books on the American West as a youth, Hitler frequently referred to the Russians as ‘Redskins.’ He saw a parallel between his effort to conquer and colonize land in Russia with the conquest of the American West by the white man and the subjugation of Indians or Redskins. ‘I don’t see why,’ he said, ‘a German who eats a piece of bread should torment himself with the idea that the soil that produces this bread has been won by the sword. When we eat wheat from Canada, we don’t think about the despoiled Indians.’ [James Pool, Hitler and His Secret Partners: Contributions, Loot and Rewards, 1933-1945; Pocket Books, N.Y. 1997 pp. 272-75]
And from some more “primary” sources in Anglo-American History:
“The depiction of Indians as wild beasts was quite common among early English and American leaders, including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. David E. Stannard writes:
‘As is so often the case, it was New England’s religious elite who made the point more graphically than anyone. Referring to some Indians who had given offense to the colonists, the Reverend Cotton Mather wrote:
“Once you have but got the Track of those Ravenous howling Wolves, then pursue them vigourously; Turn not back till they are consumed… Beat them small as the Dust before the Wind.”
Lest this be regarded as mere rhetoric, empty of literal intent, consider that another of New England’s most esteemed religious leaders, the Reverend Solomon Stoddard, as late as 1703 formally proposed to the Massachusetts Governor that the colonists be given the financial wherewithal to purchase and train large packs of dogs “to hunt Indians as they do bears.”‘ [American Holocaust: Columbus and the Conquest of the New World (New York & Oxford: Oxford University Press (1992)), p. 241]”
From Amherst College named after “Lord” Jeffrey Amherst (after whom many towns and cities were named and with statues of him in them all):
And from some of the earliest known forms of calculated Biological Warfare that later inspired the Nazis (from their own mouths) “Lord” Jeffrey Amherst:
“.. Captain Simeon Ecuyer had bought time by sending smallpox-infected blankets and handkerchiefs to the Indians surrounding the fort — an early example of biological warfare — which started an epidemic among them. Amherst himself had encouraged this tactic in a letter to Ecuyer. [p. 108] (Carl Waldman’s Atlas of the North American Indian [NY: Facts on File, 1985]. Waldman writes, in reference to a siege of Fort Pitt (Pittsburgh) by Chief Pontiac’s forces during the summer of 1763)
“Sir Jeffrey Amherst noted for his deliberate use of smallpox-infected blankets as a weapon against Indians. Amherst and his British lieutenants were a marked change from the French commanders at the forts throughout the Old Northwest and Canada. He made no effort to build goodwill with Indian peoples. He had no respect for Indian leaders, treated them contemptuously, and frequently described them as ‘wretched people’. He put an immediate end to the traditional French practice of giving Indians ball and powder when they ran short; he also prohibited emergency provisions if game was scarce, and clothing or gifts of goodwill. Lord Amherst (for whom Amherst College is named) initiated a genocidal new policy: ‘Could it not be contrived’ he wrote to one of his officers, ‘to send the smallpox among the disaffected tribes of Indians? We must on this occasion use every strategem in our power to reduce them’. Blankets were taken from the crest of the Appalachian Mountains. It delineated Indian country as west of the line; colonists lands as east of the line.” [Judith Nies “Native American History: A Chronology of a Culture’s Vast Achievements and Their Links to World Events”, Ballantine Books, N.Y., 1996, pp. 190-192]
“The Seneca invaded forts in Pennsylvania. Delaware Indians attacking Fort Pitt (formerly Fort Duquesne, now Pittsburg) were presented with ‘gifts’ of blankets taken from the smallpox ward of the fort’s hospital. It started an epidemic that would rage through the Delaware villages and Shawnee towns of Ohio, decimating their populations. Still, by the end of 1763, eight out of 12 British posts had been captured and their garrisons ‘massacred’… Pontiac’s War became a major topic of debate in Britain. The English enlarged Sir Jeffrey Amherst’s powers to subdue the rebellion. (The smallpox blankets of Fort Pitt had been Lord Amherst’s inspiration).” [Judith Nies, Ibid, p. 195]
Bertolt Brecht summed-up the dangerous mentality of the smug elites who write checks with their mouths they pass on to others to cash with the blood and treasure of others.
Those who take the meat from the table,
Those for whom the taxes are destined,
Those who eat their fill, speak to the hungry,
of wonderful times to come.
Those who lead the country into the abyss,
call ruling too difficult,
for ordinary folk.
Whether it is an individual a group or whole government: Those who assert some kind of Exceptionalism, Triumphalism, “Manifest Destiny” over others, those who openly proclaim they are seeking “Full-Spectrum Dominance” (land, sea, air, space and cyberspace as well as “dominance” in all strategic and tactical weapons as well as in all forms and fields of warfare), and who do so invoking some kind of a supernatural force or deity as their authority, are psychopaths, megalomaniacs, malignant narcissists, poseurs and frauds, shallow and without real substance. And they are ultimately doomed to a good dose of Karma and Reality when those who are being dominated rise up and do what some celebrate every 4th of July in the U.S. or, this planet is doomed if these kinds of people, groups or nations seek global and national uni-polar rule and power and achieve it.
What could be more evil than Hitler or the Japanese fascists during World War II and the myriad atrocities they committed? How about what they said, from their own mouths and writings, “inspired” them? Imagine that both the Nazi and Japanese groups of fascists that developed and implemented laws, practices and policies in the areas of “Eugenics”, ABCW (atomic, biological and chemical warfare), mass deportations and massacres, slavery of occupied populations, torture, and all sorts of other crimes, all said and wrote, that their major “inspirations” came from their readings of U.S., Canadian, British histories of colonialism and imperialism; crimes so horrible that not even the likes of Hitler could come up with them on his own without some “inspiration”.
Yes, “credibility” is a strategic asset. But the “credibility” of a bully (to make good on his threats) is not the same thing as any kind of real credibility. Real credibility comes from walking one’s talk; from obeying the same laws that one asserts others must obey; from not making promises one has no business making and no prospects of keeping; from consistently standing on and acting in accordance with defensible principle and not rank and narrow “vested interests disguised as intellectual convictions” selectively supported by naked hypocrisy and pretexts that are clear and contrived lies; from being on the right side of history;
