The Republic’s Verdict

December 7, 2008

Crime against Humanity – Judgment

Evidently from the presentation of Marine Sergeant Larry Hutchin’s case,

There are no winners in a war.

Everyone is a loser.

Not surprisingly, laws and justice are applicable only for those at the bottom of the hierarchy with a choice between disobedience to one’s own conscience and obedience to the chain of command beginning from the Commander-in-chief during such operation.

The root cause as witnessed by the world is the ideology and deceptive strategy behind the illegal invasion of Iraq that produced the massive casualties on both the American and Iraqi sides.

In particular:

The premise of war falsely suggesting and,

Misguiding United Nations with a claim, that Iraq was in possession of weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

Misleading American public by associating Iraq with September 11, attack.

Dismissal of dissent with slander such as unpatriotic, traitor and even a terrorist.

Further, demonstrating with a deliberate exposure of CIA overt operative Mrs.Valerie Plame in vengeful act against her spouse and former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, an opponent of the war.

In addition, non-compliance with the judiciary process in the matter of Mrs. Valerie Plame.

Conducting mandatory and undemocratic public survey to galvanize support for the occupation of Iraq.

Control of the mass media to propagate war message with no objectivity from the mainstream media and other airwaves.

Violation and rejection of Geneva Convention in the treatment of Prisoners of War and Suspects…

Contributing to national embarrassment i.e. Abu Ghraib.

Again, Iraq war operation carried out in violation of International Humanitarian Law or the Geneva Convention with activities not excluding —
CLUSTER BOMBING, GBU-43/B "MOTHER OF ALL BOMBS"

MOAB – MASSIVE ORDNANCE AIR BLAST BOMB


TITLED “SHOCK AND AWE.”

Suppression of facts and evidences on casualties and the victims of the so-called “Friendly Fire.”

Misuse of Power exhibiting nepotism and misappropriation of funds in hiring Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR), a subsidiary of Halliburton with vested interest by Vice President Dick Cheney.

"Ex-Guardsmen sue KBR over alleged poisoning." … "KBR Inc. [KBR is a former subsidiary of Halliburton, the corporation formerly run by Republican Vice President Dick Cheney] was,

sued by ex-members of the Indiana National Guard and accused of knowingly exposing employees and the soldiers protecting them to cancer-causing dust at an Iraqi worksite in 2003." …

"Sixteen soldiers said in a complaint in federal court in Evansville, Ind. [Indiana], that Houston[Texas]-based KBR and related companies are responsible for chromium poisoning at Qarmat Ali, Iraq." …

"The plaintiffs, from the Tell City, Ind., Guard unit, were providing security for KBR during repairs of a water-treatment plant, according to the complaint.

The site was contaminated for six months by hexavalent chromium, a carcinogen in powdered compounds used to control corrosion, it said." …

"“The Tell City Guardsmen were repeatedly told that there was no danger on site, even after KBR managers knew that blood testing of American civilians exposed onsite confirmed elevated chromium levels,” the soldiers’ lawyers said in court papers." …

"Hexavalent chromium on first exposure causes nosebleeds, respiratory ailments and rashes,

which the soldiers said KBR officials told them was caused by dry desert air or sand allergies, according to the complaint. Chromium poisoning is irreversible, it said." …

"KBR sought to conceal the contamination and, once it was discovered, to limit exposed individuals’ knowledge about the level of poisoning they had suffered, the soldiers claimed." …

"Ed Blacke, who worked as a medic at Qarmat Ali, testified that KBR fired him when he discovered the chromium exposure and tried to warn workers." -Bloomberg via -Chron

"Military contractor in Iraq holds foreign workers in warehouses." …

"About 1,000 Asian men who were hired by a Kuwaiti subcontractor to the U.S. [United States] military have been confined for as long as three months in windowless warehouses near the Baghdad [Iraq’s capital] airport without money or a place to work." …

"Najlaa International Catering Services, a subcontractor to KBR [formerly a Halliburton subsidiary,

the corporation formerly run by Republican Vice President Dick Cheney], an engineering, construction and services company, hired the men, who’re from India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

On Tuesday, they staged a march outside their compound to protest their living conditions." …

"The laborers said they paid middlemen more than $2,000 to get to Iraq for jobs that they were told would earn them $600 to $800 a month." …

"The conditions in which the men have been held appear to violate guidelines the U.S. military handed down in 2006 that urged contractors to deter human trafficking to the war zone by shunning recruiters that charged excessive fees." -By Adam Ashton -McClatchyDC.com

———————————————————

"KBR Suit Alleges ‘Forced Labor’ and ‘Slavery’." …

"We’ve now looked through the lawsuit against KBR that we told you about this morning.

The complaint (pdf) alleges that the company —

the biggest U.S. [United States] contractor in Iraq during the period at issue — engaged in a human trafficking scheme whereby 12 Nepali men were brought to Iraq to work and were prevented from leaving.

The men were then kidnapped by insurgents, and all but one were executed." …

"In sum: "Defendants’ actions as set forth above constitute the torts of trafficking in persons, involuntary servitude, forced labor, and slavery."" …

"This is hardly the first time that KBR has been in hot water, of course.

As we noted back in June, the company "was criticized in March for making troops sick by failing to provide clean water.

And top military officials have given false statements to Congress to quell controversy over the company."

In addition, at least two female former KBR employees in Iraq have alleged that they were raped or sexually assaulted by co-workers,

and that KBR was less than aggressive in investigating their claims." -By Zachary Roth -TPMMuckracker .TalkingPointsMemo

Incidents involving violation of human rights against Iraqi civilians by private contractors of Black Water Corporation hired by the incumbent administration.

—————————————————————-

The highlighted facts are merely a few of many notable activities worthy of condemnation and justifiably indictment.

It is no revelation that the executive branch and some exempting themselves by conveniently categorizing oneself as the legislative member of the branch i.e. Vice President Dick Cheney,

Have not accepted responsibility or expressed remorse…

Over sponsoring the catastrophic war conscientiously executed in a style similar to a recreational activity with an utter disregard for life in general at the dawn of twenty first century.

Notwithstanding corruption, cronyism and tax evasion of millions of U.S. Tax dollars tucked away at Ugland House, a camouflaged building on the Cayman Islands.

The reason being, the members of Congress as elected officials representing democracy have not pursued the crime against humanity as a significant moral or ethical crisis in the highest office on land.

It is noteworthy that many legislators in both the Senate and Congress cast their vote for the illegal invasion of a nation posing no verifiable threat to United States.

Unlike, Marine Sergeant Larry Hutchins who had to make a split second decision with dire consequence for failing to obey the order.

These legislators had the opportunity and privilege to review facts and access information prior to pledging their support.

Unfortunately, many did not choose that path and instead approved the death penalty of thousands of brave young men and women in our armed forces along with over a million innocent Iraqi civilians.

Hence, there is no accountability for the systematic abuse of power in the entire term of eight years.

Clearly, democracy undermined in an unprecedented manner thus far.

Such legacy provides basis for future unethical conduct and immoral behavior with no consequences.

It is a dangerous trajectory with a widespread impact on humanity.

Therefore, it is the duty of every concerned, caring, compassionate and patriotic American to come forward and demand that their legislators / representatives display courage in honoring the brave young men and women and innocent civilians in Iraq who lost their lives in an operation carried out under the guise of establishing democracy titled Operation Iraqi Freedom

While, simultaneously hijacking the one at home and successfully bankrupting the economy.

It is imperative for the people with power in a democracy to seek,

Impeachment proceedings and indictments against the incumbent administration for misrepresentation and abuse of executive power.

Most importantly for ignoring the existence of Constitution in the land of Republic.

The legal minds across the nation must fulfill obligation towards democracy and fellow citizens lost in the Iraq war with rigorous prosecution of all those individuals in the incumbent administration responsible for the incredible dishonesty and horrendous crime against humanity.

Any immunity or partiality to the current administration by the judiciary will be an assault on the democratic system with law and order for every individual to follow regardless of ranks and power in the land of justice.

All those in opposition to delivering justice to the victims of Iraq war and the above listed crimes deemed complicit to the abuse of power and authority.

Needless to add that those entities will share similar fate of Mr. O. J. Simpson as witnessed lately.

The reaction and response are a direct result of cause and effect of action and decision-making process.

The Law of Cause and Effect is fair; no one enjoys any special privileges at all.

That wrong cannot win against reason,

Reason cannot win against law

Law cannot win against power and

Finally,

Power cannot win against Heaven.

Thank you.
