You are herecontent / Watada Lawyer Rebukes Judge
By davidswanson - Posted on 06 February 2007
Yeah . . but looky over there!!! Astronaut "Fatal Attraction"!!! . . . ;-)
It is fascinating that one of the MOST important trials in the history of the United States . . and possibly one fo the most important trials in Western Civilization . . . is being deliberately drowned out by the Main Stream Media by a story one would expect to see on "The Jerry Springer Show" . . .
To this ol' fool from North Cackilacki, Lt. Watada is challenging the very heart of Patriarchal Fascism . . . "Is a Soldier a Slave that MUST obey orders . .. or suffer the same or worst fate at the hands of his fellow soldiers/slaves?"
In other words, "Do it to THEM* or WE will do it to YOU" has long been the motivator of Patriarchal Fascist systems in the OLD WORLD.
(*THEM being defined as the "Enemy du jour" of the kings, bankers, and priests that must always have "MORE")
Having come from a military and politically active family, it has always been a pet peeve of mine that whenever I would train our Military and Intelligence agencies and ask them about their "knowledge" of the US Constitution . . . that beautiful set of Game Rules that they all repeatedly took a solemn vow to protect and defend against all enemies . .. Foreign AND Domestic . . . most would sit "blank faced" and admit that they hadn't really thought about it since their elementary school/high school civics classes . . .
How can you agree to KILL, DESTROY, MAIM, TORTURE, POISON, TERRORIZE, IMPRISON, IMPOVERISH and INTIMIDATE total strangers that never did any direct harm to you or your family based completely on the hear-say of Grown-Up "Authorities" . . . who may or may not be benefitting from the situtation . . . and justify it all to your own psyche by saying, "I was defending the US Constitution" by "just following orders"???? . . .
As one of those poor fools that has always paid his taxes (even though I now realize that Income Tax on Labor is probably total illegal International Central banking bullshit) .. . I was always outraged that our US Military would spend so much of this country's Common Wealth Treasure to teach our kidz a zillion ways to kill other kidz and give them the "best of the best" tools of the death science trade to do it with . . . but no time at all is set aside to teach these kidz what the US Constitution and our system of New World LAW is all about . . .
Just ask any soldier how much time they spend in Basic Training or even Officer's Training learning about the US. Constitution if you don't believe me .. . this REALLY pisses me off . . . ;-)
At what point does a Soldier in the US Military become a Mercenary? . . . and at what point does a Soldier become a conditioned slave trained to kill upon command without question?
But in my classes, every blue moon or so . . . there would always be that one glowing kid that "got it" . . . and they could usually clean my clock with their "kung fu" when it came to the US Constitution and Military history. . .. ;-)
. . . I feel Lt. Ehren Watada is such a soldier . . . and my poor use of words could never begin to express my love and admiration for this brave soul. . .
. . . foolz will write songs about you, kid . .. ;-)

There'll be peace when you are done

Don't you cry no more"
