Global Elite are Using the U.S. Military to Occupy the Nations of the
World to Take Control of Their Resources
To the editor,
You have recently published several items that reflect how opposition
American voices feel about the U.S. government‘s ‘war on terrorism’ and the
global corporate imperialism that is being accomplished largely through the
threat of U.S. military force. The few Americans who are still sensible enough
to see through the propaganda are horrified that, under the guise of
‘making the world safe for democracy’, the global elite are using the U.S.
military to occupy the nations of the world to take control of their resources
Your open letter to the world from the well-intended citizens of belligerent
nations (Citizens of the World Against War but for Peace and Justice), which
we reprinted in the June 13, 2002 edition of The Idaho Observer, mirrored
our sentiments here.
As an American born in Idaho I love my country. But I have learned through
study and experience that the U.S. government, since WWII, is little more
than an immensely powerful and wholly discompassionate syndicate of organized
The Idaho Observer has published the brilliant works of dedicated individuals
who have proven that the U.S. government has for decades supported both sides
of wars all over the world and has placed dozens of puppet dictators in power
only to betray them whenever it’s convenient. We learned during the Iran
Contra hearings in the mid 80s that the U.S. government runs the world’s
most successful drug trafficking operation. We have learned that the U.S.
government-endorsed policies of Henry Kissinger are behind every genocidal
event worldwide since WWII. We know that under the protection of the U.S.
military global industrialists are able to exploit and destroy nations, their
economies, their people, their environments and then move on to exploit others
without being held accountable for their greed-driven scorched earth policies.
Understand, however, that the U.S. government’s totalitarian disregard
for all things noble and decent is not limited to other nations. The U.S.
government is intentionally bankrupting the people of our nation with an
illegal graduated income tax. Since declaring domestic wars on poverty, homelessness,
drugs, sex and violence on TV, illegal immigration, illiteracy, teen pregnancy
and domestic violence, all of those problems have worsened to the breaking
point here. International ‘free trade’ agreements have all but totally devastated
our industrial base and most production has been shipped overseas to nations
that employ cheap prison and child laborers. Our population here in the land
of the free is 280 million. Two million Americans are in prison—and that
is not including the tens of millions that are out on parole or on probation.
We have millions of rules, regulations and statutes that govern almost every
aspect of our personal, professional and private lives.
Americans are more enslaved than the peoples of occupied nations because
most of them still think they are free even though half their earnings go
to an intricate web of taxes and they have to ask permission before being
permitted to do most anything beyond breathing.
You don’t even have to wonder why Americans are so deceived. You front
paged the answer in the July/August edition of Current Concerns with a story
under the headline, ‘Pentagon Program Promotes Psychopharmacological Warfare’.
Again, I must stress that the American people are no less targeted for
subjugation and exploitation by the U.S. government than any other nationality
of people. In this country there is tremendous pressure to fluoridate water,
vaccinate children and then prescribe them psychotropic drugs when vaccine
damage manifests as sociological behavior. By the time Americans are in their
40s they habitually take an average of two prescription ‘medications’. Those
medications have complications which result in chronic conditions for which
additional medications are prescribed. By the time most Americans die, they
have spent the last years of their lives barely able to function as the pharmaceutical
drugs wreak havoc on their bodies and minds while emptying their bank accounts.
Funny, you opened your front page article with reference to an obscure
book. In the mid-80s, when I was in my early 20s, I owned a copy of the Futurological
Congress by Stanislaw Lem. I loaned it out and never got it back. I remember
it being a satire. Now, as you mentioned, it was not a satire at all—it was
As you have no doubt experienced it is becoming increasingly difficult
and lonely being contrarians as the world becomes more and more the prison
planet. I want you to know that it is with great appreciation and anticipation
that I receive Current Concerns every other month. It is also a relief to
know that there are other opposition publications in other parts of the world
that go forward into the future fearlessly standing for the principles of
honor, decency and compassion that should govern our human existence here
Good luck to all of us.
