For a change, this year, let’s pay respects to all the victims
of US government-led military aggressions …
by Brian Wright
“We Americans are the ultimate innocents. We are forever desperate to believe that this time the government is telling us the truth.”
Since my Memorial Day column from 2008 has been such a perennial visit-gatherer—and I must admit it touches all the libertarian emotional, intellectual, and spiritual bases—I’m going to continue that tradition this year… with more thoughts on paying tribute to those who fought and died for (or partly in) human liberty, whether or not they are American and whether or not they ever donned a uniform.
Let’s also pay our respects to the millions of victims of the Borg-dominated US government which—serving the interests of the international looting classes of the West (since roughly the 1830s)—led its men in uniform into acts of aggression or sanction thereof, such as:
- the War of Northern (Borg-US) Aggression resulting in more than one million military dead and wounded, some estimates of 250,000 civilian casualties
- the Indian Wars resulting in roughly 2,000 American military casualties, and estimates of several million Indian casualties considering other effects of military conquest: dispossession, incarceration, and disease—i.e. genocide
- the Spanish-American War killing approximately 5,000 American military, and, in the Philippines ~one million civilians dying as a consequence
- WW1 and WW2 meatgrinders claiming 300,000 military dead and wounded and 1,000,000+ dead and wounded, respectively; these were the ‘good wars’ of America, that actually put Memorial Day on Americans’ holiday map—I like to point to the Borg-US government war crimes of the firebombing of Dresden (untold tens of thousands of German civilians killed) and the atomic bombing of Japan (200,000+ civilians killed)
- the ethnic cleansing of millions of European German civilians at the hands of Stalin’s and Tito’s butchers—two million is the accepted number of civilian (often horrifying) deaths—thanks to meetings of Borg-US leader Roosevelt and Borg-UK leader Churchill with Stalin at the end of WW2
- the untold millions of innocent civilians slaughtered by home-grown clients of the American state-terror apparatus (CIA) from support of corporate-friendly dictators from Iran to Guatemala to Indonesia after WW2
- the Borg-Vietnam War Crime in the 1970s causing ~2,000,000 civilian casualties, roughly 10% of those coming from US bombing operations (the Vietnam War was a war of aggression by Borg-US forces against the Vietnamese people resisting a corrupt and murderous French-inherited dictatorship)
- finally the more recent Borg-War Crimes of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan in which Borg-US attacks, torture, imprisonment, dispossession, and plunder of civilians has reached a fever pitch (and Americans have lost their civil liberties)—civilian deaths attributed to Borg-US war in Iraq = ~1,450,000, with ~4,700,000 Iraqi civilians being dispossessed or needing to flee from their homes
Granted this is a polemical piece, and civilian casualty numbers are always a matter of strong debate on every side, so I simply want to make it clear that in each of the eight Borg-US-inspired-or-enabled actions above—with the possible exception of #5—men serving in the US military have made possible more than a few civilian deaths of noncombatant human beings… by following the orders of their military-political leaders, which sometimes were to intentionally, unprovokedly, and unilaterally murder persons posing no military threat. Were there any justifiable wars for Americans? A maximum, I think, of three: 1) the War for Independence, 2) the War of 1812, and 3) World War 2. And I’m not certain about that one.
By no means am I claiming individuals serving in the military or even the police forces are universally amoral or immoral. Cases in point: Pat Tillman and other would-be whistle-blowers, most of whom are harassed and sometimes, as in Tillman’s case, killed by Borg operatives. All I’m saying is we need to look at what’s real about the ol’ red, white, and blue… see the big picture of whose interests a gargantuan military empire (2,500,000 persons encamped in 700+ bases around the world) truly serve. Such a monstrosity can only be the foundation of global tyranny… definitely not what most of our fighting men signed up for.
So what do we as civilians do, what is a suitable libertarian memorial for those in uniform?
Three Step Program
Let me stay brief and focused. We need to take three steps—those of us who have a care for our country and its future—to do all that we can to properly commemorate our founders and defenders of American liberty:
- Take your head out of your butt—whether you’ve decided not to stand tall and look around to see what’s what out of a) fear of being unpopular, b) fear of the 900# gorilla you’ve thus far ignored, or c) you prefer to remain in the dark where nobody can find you, the fact is they—the police-state thugs—will find you… and put you away.
- Get the truth from alternative media—the latest travesties of Obama’s birth-certificate forgery and the false-flag operation supposedly killing Osama bin Laden confirm that the mainstream media are in on the Big Lie(s). Tune in to the alternative media, especially Alex Jones (infowars.com and prisonplanet.com). Open your mind to pro-liberty and pro-truth sources of information.
- Embrace action from the grass roots level—having learned that the Barrier Cloud is driven externally by Borg mind-control and conscious intention of forces hostile to natural humanity, recognize the need to expose the threat and cure the social disease represented by these men of the power sickness (MOPS). Fundamentally, humans must undertake a grassroots movement to undo coercive government at all levels and achieve individual spiritual awakening.
Forgive the blunt talk, I wanted to end this column on an upbeat tone. My Memorial Day message: I remarked in a previous column, “… as Charles Lindbergh once put it, ‘One man with courage makes a majority.’ It only takes one brave man—take a Gandhi or an ML King—to put an end to an empire and its wars. Mainly because the lies that are integral to such empires and wars cannot stand up to the little boy exclaiming that the emperor has no clothes.”
 Borg = the operational ‘central controlling entity’ serving the international looting elites—i.e. central-bank consortium, banksters and their corporate-political drones—of the West; the Borg is known for its military and security state functions as well as its information-, mind-, and population-control apparatus. I’m thankful to Phil Garlington, author of Rancho Costa Nada: The dirt-cheap desert homestead, for giving me this term, possibly the best name ever for what I used to call the Alien Space Lizards or the Pathocracy.
 Borg forces, based on the Rothschild Formula, financed the war buildups of all the fascist states, communist states, and corporate states in the 20th century… analogous to the Mob creating threats to justify paying for their protection. Kill the Borg, end war.

Another name for the War of Northern Aggression was coined by Webb Garrison in the title of his book, “Lincoln’s Little War.” Quoting from the back cover:
“…In piecing together the events that led to the bombardment of Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, Webb Garrison considers whether the secession of the southern states was inevitable and war unavoidable.
“Garrison’s interpretation of the actions of the Lincoln administration suggests that the president manipulated the drama in Charleston to create a no-win scenario for the South–a great psychological victory for him, but one with dire consequences for the rest of the country.”
“Lincoln may have anticipated a war between the states, but Garrison claims that he provoked it, believing the war would be a brief conflict, a kind of police action similar to George Washington’s handling of the 1794 Whiskey Rebellion.”…
Another author critical of Lincoln is Thomas J. DiLorenzo. His book, “Lincoln Unmasked: What You’re Not Supposed to Know About Dishonest Abe” is another break-away tome from the Lincoln worshiper cult and its journalistic papering over of the American tyrant’s true place in history. From its dust jacket:
“In The Real Lincoln, Professor DiLorenzo convincingly exposed Lincoln idolatry as a fraud that has poisoned America’s understanding of itself. Following up in ‘Lincoln Unmasked,’ he shows who maintains and profits from the toxin in the body politic and the damage that they are doing to us to this very day. DiLorenzo’s masterful diagnosis, we hope, will go a long way toward a cure.” Clyde Wilson, DPE of History, Univ of S.C.
I have the three \books in my history collection. Any one of them is a worthwhile read for those students of history that are interested in revising American history to be truthful and not statist propaganda.
Yes, I’ve been taking to calling the Civil War as the War of Northern Aggression, as well. That’s a very interesting Wiki documentation of the thoroughness of the actions of the US Aggression War Machinery… which as we know follow the Rothschild Formula and are waged principally for aggrandizement of the Western Financial Oligarchy (aka the Ollies or the MOPS (Men of the Power Sickness)). I believe the consciousness, worldwide, of the engines of war is growing exponentially and may be reaching critical mass this year.
I know that Wikipedia gets a bad rap for its contributors manipulating the content in its postings. Be that as it may, this is as complete a listing of U.S. wars and conflicts as I have seen. The number is staggering. The article breaks down each “War or conflict” into “Campaigns or Theaters.” WWII has 31 “Campaigns or Theaters,” the Spanish-American War has six and WWI has six “Campaigns or Theaters” also. There are sixty-one “Conflicts and Wars” listed between the War of 1812 and the Spanish-American War. There are seven more listed between the Spanish-American War and WWI. The article does not list casualties. The list ends with Obama’s 2011 Operation Odyssey Dawn in Libya.
The list doesn’t include the Iranian War—-YET!
I found it interesting that the writer breaks down the Cold War to include the French Indochina War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Laotian Civil War as “Campaigns or Theaters.”
One blatant error in the listing is that The War of Northern Aggression is incorrectly called, either, The Civil War or The American Civil War.
