US Must face the Truth : Know who is the Terrorist

25 Classic Quotes on Western Hegemony



1- "It's really not a number I'm terribly interested in." -General 

Colin

Powell [When asked about the number of Iraqi people who were 

slaughtered

by Americans in the 1991 "Desert Storm" terror campaign (200,000 

people!)]



2- "I will never apologize for the United States of America - I don't 

care

what the facts are."  -President George Bush 1988 [Bush was 

demonstrating

his patriotism by excusing an act of cold-blooded mass-murder by the 

U.S.

Navy. On July 3, 1988 the U.S. Navy warship Vincennes shot down an 

Iranian

commercial airliner. All 290 civilian people in the aircraft were 

killed.

The plane was on a routine flight in a commercial corridor in Iranian

airspace. The targeting of it by the U.S. Navy was blatantly illegal. 

That

it was grossly immoral is also obvious. Except to a patriot.]



3- "To maintain this position of disparity (U.S. economic-military

supremacy)... we will have to dispense with all sentimentality and

day-dreaming.... We should cease to talk about vague and... unreal

objectives such as human rights, the raising of the living standard and

democratization. The day is not far off when we are going to have to 

deal

in straight power concepts.... The less we are then hampered by 

idealistic

slogans, the better." -George Kennan [Director of Policy Planning U.S.

State Department 1948]



4- "If they turn on the radars we're going to blow up their goddamn 

SAMs

(surface-to-air missiles). They know we own their country. We own their

airspace... We dictate the way they live and talk. And that's what's 

great

about America right now. It's a good thing, especially when there's a 

lot

of oil out there we need." -U.S. Brig. General William Looney 

(Interview

Washington Post, August 30, 1999) [Referring, in reality, to the brutal

mass-murder of hundreds of civilian Iraqi men, women and children 

during

10,000 sorties by American/British war criminals in the first eight 

months

of 1999]



5- "The greatest crime since World War II has been U.S. foreign 

policy."

-Ramsey Clark [Former U.S. Attorney General under President Lyndon

Johnson]



6- "I believe that if we had and would keep our dirty, bloody, dollar

soaked fingers out of the business of these [Third World] nations so 

full

of depressed, exploited people, they will arrive at a solution of their

own. And if unfortunately their revolution must be of the violent type

because the "haves" refuse to share with the "have-nots" by any 

peaceful

method, at least what they get will be their own, and not the American

style, which they don't want and above all don't want crammed down 

their

throats by Americans." -General David Sharp [Former United States 

Marine

Commandant 1966]



7- "We have no honorable intentions in Vietnam. Our minimal expectation 

is

to occupy it as an American colony and maintain social stability for 

our

investments. This tells why American helicopters are being used against

guerrillas in Colombia and Peru. Increasingly the role our nation has

taken is the role of those who refuse to give up the privileges and

pleasures that come from the immense profits of overseas investment."

-Martin Luther King, Jr. ["A Time to Break the Silence" speech given at

Riverside Church New York City April 4, 1967]



8- "Death squads have been created and used by the CIA around the world 

-

particularly the Third World - since the late 1940s, a fact ignored by 

the

elite-owned media."  -Ralph McGehee [Former CIA analyst & Author] 

CIABASE;

The Crisis of Democracy Deadly Deceits: My 25 years in the CIA



9- "The U.S.A. has supplied arms, security equipment and training to

governments and armed groups that have committed torture, political

killings and other human rights abuses in countries around the world."

-Amnesty International ["United States of America - Rights for All"

October 1998]



10- "We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most 

completely

controlled and dominated Governments in the world - no longer a 

Government

of free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and vote of the

majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of small groups of

dominant men." -Woodrow Wilson [U.S. President during World War I]



11- "We must become the owners, or at any rate the controllers at the

source, of at least a proportion of the oil which we require." - 

British

Royal Commission, agreeing with Winston Churchill's policy towards 

Iraq,

1913



12- "What we want to have in existence, what we ought to have been

creating in this time is some administration with Arab institutions 

which

we can safely leave while pulling the strings ourselves; something that

won't cost very much, which the Labour government can swallow 

consistent

with its' principles, but under which our economic and political 

interests

will be secure. [.....] If the French remain in Syria we shall have to

avoid giving them the excuse of setting up a protectorate. If they go, 

or

if we appear to be reactionary in Mesopotamia, there is always the risk

that [King] Faisal will encourage the Americans to take over both, and 

it

should be borne in mind that the Standard Oil company is very anxious 

to

take over Iraq." - Sir Arthur Hirtzel, Head of the British government's

'India Office Political Department.' 1919



13- "If war aims are stated which seem to be solely concerned with

Anglo-American imperialism, they will offer little to people in the 

rest

of the world. The interests of other peoples should be stressed. This

would have a better propaganda effect." - Private memo from The Council 

of

Foreign Relations to the US State Department, 1941



14- "Our strategic and security interests throughout the world will be

best safeguarded by the establishment in suitable spots of 'Police

Stations', fully equipped to deal with emergencies within a large 

radius.

Kuwait is one such spot from which Iraq, South Persia, Saudi Arabia and

the Persian Gulf could be controlled. It will be worthwhile to go to

considerable trouble and expense to establish and man a 'Police 

Station'

there." - British Foreign Office, policy memo, 1947



15- ?We have about 60% of the world?s wealth but only 6.3% of its?

population. In this situation we cannot fail to be the object of envy 

and

resentment. Our real task in the coming period is to devise a pattern 

of

relationships which will permit us to maintain this position of 

disparity.

We need not deceive ourselves that we can afford today the luxury of

altruism and world benefaction. We should cease to talk about such 

vague

and unreal objectives as human rights, the raising of living standards 

and

democratisation. The day is not far off when we are going to have to 

deal

in straight power concepts. The less we are then hampered by idealistic

slogans, the better." - George Kennan, former Head of the US State

Department Policy Planning Staff, Document PPS23, 24th February 1948



16- "I came to America because of the great, great freedom which I 

heard

existed in this country. I made a mistake in selecting America as a 

land

of freedom, a mistake I cannot repair in the balance of my lifetime."

-Albert Einstein, 1947



17- "The target suffered a terminal illness before a firing squad in

Baghdad."  - CIA officer testifying to US Senate hearing, after bloody 

CIA

aided Ba'th Party coup overthrew Iraqi Prime Minister Abdel Kassem, 

1963



18- "Strikes at population targets (per se) are likely not only to 

create

a counterproductive wave of revulsion abroad and at home, but greatly 

to

increase the risk of enlarging the war with China and the Soviet Union.

Destruction of locks and dams, however ? if handled right ? might offer

promise. It should be studied. Such destruction does not kill or drown

people. By shallow-flooding the rice, it leads after time to widespread

starvation (more than a million) unless food is provided ? which we 

could

offer to do ?at the conference table?." - John McNaughton, US State

Department Vietnam policy, as quoted in ?The Mentality of the Backroom

Boys.? Article by Noam Chomsky, 1973



19- "The US must carry out some act somewhere in the world which shows

its? determination to continue to be a world power." - Henry Kissinger,

post-Vietnam blues, as quoted in The Washington Post, April 1975



20- "It would not have been possible for a political party to be more

committed to a national home for the Jews in Palestine than was 

Labour." -

Harold Wilson, former British Labour Party Prime Minister, 1981



21- "One hundred nations in the UN have not agreed with us on just 

about

everything that's come before them, where we're involved, and it didn't

upset my breakfast at all." - Ronald Reagan, former US President, 

basking

in the triumph that was the US invasion of Grenada, 1983



22- Q. "Mr. President, have you approved of covert activity to 

destablise

the present government of Nicaragua?" A. "Well, no, we're supporting 

them,

the - oh, wait a minute, wait a minute, I'm sorry, I was thinking of El

Salvador, because of the previous, when you said Nicaragua. Here again,

this is something upon which the national security interests, I just - 

I

will not comment." - Ronald Reagan, former US President, Washington 

press

conference, February 13th, 1983, as quoted by John Pilger in 'Heroes'



23- "After seeing 'RAMBO' last night, I know what to do the next time 

this

happens." - Ronald Reagan, former US President, as reported by Daily

Express, July 2nd, 1985



24- "Aerosol DU (Depleted Uranium) exposures to soldiers on the

battlefield could be significant with potential radiological and

toxicological effects. [...] Under combat conditions, the most exposed

individuals are probably ground troops that re-enter a battlefield

following the exchange of armour-piercing munitions. [...] We are 

simply

highlighting the potential for levels of DU exposure to military 

personnel

during combat that would be unacceptable during peacetime operations.

[...DU is..]... a low level alpha radiation emitter which is linked to

cancer when exposures are internal, [and] chemical toxicity causing 

kidney

damage. [...] Short term effects of high doses can result in death, 

while

long term effects of low doses have been linked to cancer. [...] Our

conclusion regarding the health and environmental acceptability of DU

penetrators assume both controlled use and the presence of excellent

health physics management practices. Combat conditions will lead to the

uncontrolled release of DU. [...] The conditions of the battlefield, 

and the

long term health risks to natives and combat veterans may become issues 

in

the acceptability of the continued use of DU kinetic penetrators for

military applications." - Excerpts from the July 1990 Science and

Applications International Corporation report: ' Kinetic Energy 

Penetrator

Environment and Health Considerations', as included in Appenix D - US 

Army

Armaments, Munitions and Chemical Command report: 'Kinetic Energy

Penetrator Long Term Strategy Study, July 1990' These documents state

clearly and equivocally that the US army was well aware of the 

radioactive

and toxic dangers of Depleted Uranium ammunition long before the first

shots of the war were fired.



25- "We do not have any defence treaties with Kuwait, and there are no

special defence or security commitments to Kuwait." - Margaret 

Tutweiller,

US State Department spokeswoman, 24th July 1990, nine days before 

Iraq's

invasion of Kuwait
