United States – NDAA Veto and GITMO Closure

October 22, 2015

By Padmini Arhant

The White House decision on National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) introduced, enacted and implemented in December 2010 now vetoed in the wake of disagreement between legislative and executive branch on defense spending bill to a tune of $612 billion deserves attention.  

NDAA was unconstitutional with serious infringement on civil liberty.  The legislation on NDAA defined political reality.  Similarly procrastination in shutting down Guantanamo Bay prison holding inmates without due process clarifies democracy in subjugation.

Revoking NDAA and GITMO closure would reinstate democracy and restore human values in rapid deterioration since 9/11.

Besides GITMO, United States and NATO run detention centers in Afghanistan, Middle East, South East Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America facilitating renditions and gross human rights violations under the pretext of war on terror exacerbate terror manufacturing and activities to prolong conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan and throughout Africa. 

Regardless of motives behind undemocratic rule and practices such as NDAA and GITMO camp, anything counterproductive is unsustainable with inevitable adverse effects on the source and catalysts.

Notwithstanding economic liability in maintaining prison complexes worldwide. 

Sponsoring terrorism by funding, training and arming terror networks to destabilize nations is the current trend leaving scores dead and millions in refugee status ultimately affecting the origin of the problem witnessed in refugee influx on EU shores and inhumane response to humanitarian crises.

Likewise, military interventions with aerial bombing and air strikes claimed as expunging terror in Syria and elsewhere are more favorable to boost defense expenditure ignoring massive infrastructure destruction in war zone considering hegemony deployed terror factions across the country.

The repeat proposals from this website to ban weapons supply to terror groups in addition to disarming militants and rebels across the globe is not appealing for those attracted to failure and mayhem. 

Simultaneously arms and ammunitions distribution to terrorists, dictatorial regimes, nefarious elements, drug cartels, organized and underground crime syndicate benefit stake holders in defense (more appropriately offensive) stocks to continue status quo.

Nuclear states with military might inability to contain terror and militancy in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Middle East in particular pose credibility factor revealing the background and complicity within as well as outside the domain. 

Hegemony aspirations for global dominance producing enormous casualties, human tragedies with generational impact along with economic burden and environment degradation is a lost cause in otherwise fait accompli. 

Repealing NDAA and departure from torture techniques cited at GITMO would confirm recognition of erroneous actions and sincerity in reviving democratic principles and fairness in justice.

United States could be the land of the free and the home of the brave upon respecting life in general –  own citizens and foreign nationals alike.

Peace to all!

Thank you.

United States – The Art of Political Expediency

October 6, 2013

By Padmini Arhant

The political system that is controlled maneuvered and specializes in manufacturing crises through false flags and other means to establish criminality as the rule of law evident in –

NSA surveillance,

NDAA denying own citizens due process,

Unlawful detentions in Guantanamo Bay and domestic prison complex,

That holds republic to ransom with government shut down and,

Complicit in siphoning trillions of dollars from national treasury at ordinary citizens expense bear no resemblance to democracy in simplistic or pragmatic terms with reliance on subversion in pursuit of dominance.

Besides sponsoring terror, conducting drone attacks to kill innocent civilians around the world and above all providing military and monetary aid to belligerent states with track record of gross human rights violation regarded the supreme privilege in the era of changing geopolitical dynamics rejecting supremacy concept.

The arms supply to drug cartels under the Fast and Furious program run by the administration Justice Department having claimed more than 50,000 lives and still counting in the neighboring Mexico while the population from that state fleeing the violence riddled situation characterized illegals remain the bone of contention in the immigration debate.

The foreign policy that considers unlawful invasion and occupation of foreign land as the prerogative ironically holds thousands arriving on the United States shores due to U.S. created economic and political mayhem in the respective country of origin a burden on the economy calling for stringent immigration rules and building the highest possible fence to prevent the influx of victims from counterproductive neo-liberal economic strategy and neo-conservative militarism.

Furthermore the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and Trilateral Commission run State Department, the Department of Defense and Intelligence Agencies embark on missions destabilizing sovereign nations, toppling democratic and popular governments and institutionalizing state terrorism for pervasive subjugation. 

The investigation on the State Department involved incident in Benghazi, Libya related to United States ambassador Christopher Stevens assassination and three other embassy staff deaths stifled with evidence disposal. 

Additionally the appointment of the so-called independent committee known as Accountability Review Board (ARB) comprising the state department officials posing conflict of interest disregarding congressional subpoenas by threatening members pursuing the matter speaks volume on the resistance to transparency concerning American safety. 

Similarly, the U.S. raid in Abbottabad, Pakistan supposedly to capture or kill Osama Bin laden conveniently denying the public any proof to that effect was followed with the elimination of Navy Seal deployed in that operation.

Again the forces behind 9//11 onslaught leading to global status quo share imperialistic quest unleashing terror via al-Qaeda – the network founded by them. 

Notwithstanding aggression against developing nations facilitate recruitment for relentless warfare.

The U.S. administration latest form of intimidation against perceived adversaries is airspace refusal to foreign governments heads of state like Bolivian President Evo Morales and Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro with no regrets on the reckless intrusions endangering life and diplomatic row not to mention the action in breach of international aviation standard.

Owing to these circumstances and many other events where state lawlessness upheld as the law with imposition of hardline tactics to quell dissent and peaceful assembly in disdain for non-violent civil disobedience clarify systemic abuse of power reflecting authoritarianism to suppress accountability. 

The important factor is corruption apparently potent than nuclear arsenal in expanding proxy governance worldwide – prominently in the domain misconstrued as democracy.

On nuclear and assorted WMD disarmament – the selective criteria exempting violators in possession of substantial stockpiles from any inspection, verification and compliances juxtapose mandatory enforcement on abiding nations reveal the inherently flawed denuclearization stratagem.

UN and UNSC along with EU maintaining the parallel government role and exclusivity exercised in arbitrary economic sanctions and ammunition delivery to terrorists in Syria or approval to invade minerals rich nation like Mali slight fairness and objectivity thereby confirming the organizational purpose to sustain hierarchy.

However, the process having exhausted methods on parasitic existence depleting the source and earth’s resources is at the crossroads to renounce destructive course or proceed to the precipice for inevitable outcome not necessarily favorable to them.

The remedial measure to current challenges is to address the cause rather than responding to symptoms alone commencing with mass consciousness and resolve to invalidate prevalent conditions designed to protect the illusive self-proclaimed aristocracy.

United States breakthrough on impasse is possible with open communication and recognition of mutual responsibility in expediting reconciliation.

The real independence is primarily linked with adherence to constitutional requirement on all issues especially the transfer of authority from privately owned Federal Reserve to national ownership on money supply, distribution and implementation of monetary policy.

Nonetheless the art of political expediency overrides rationality and courage to confront elements contributing to precipitous decline of morality, human values and ethical efficacy. 

Human evolution enriched with intelligence and reasoning invoking compassion for universal empowerment is instrumental in attaining liberation and prosperity.

Peace to all!

Thank you.
