“Fallujah is the Guernica of our time,” former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark has said over and over. He said it again at the antiwar protest in Washington, where he once more termed the current occupant of the White House a war criminal who deserves to be impeached.
The Nuremberg judgment calls the war of aggression the supreme international crime. It’s the first crime against peace. There can be no war crime until there’s war. It leads to all of the crimes against humanity. It is a supreme international crime. And George Bush’s “Shock and Awe,” a synonym for terrorism — isn’t it? “Shock and Awe” — was a war of aggression.
“The whole assault,” Clark went on to say, “was built on deliberate lies, not misinformation, not poor intelligence. They knew damn well what they were doing. They wanted to do it, and they did it. And every moment of this invasion, which takes the lives of Iraqi people every day, is an illegal occupation.”
It’s not just the Iraqis being killed, as we know too well. But it’s mostly them, and so long as the slaughter continues — by the Sunni insurgents, the Al Qaeda suicide bombers, all the other Islamofascist brigades, and not least the largely U.S. and British occupying troops — all our Bullshitter-in-Chief’s pious declarations about making us a safer nation and the world a freer place are blind posturing to hide his guilt.
