America’s Genocidal Wars

American flag

by Stephen Lendman

(RINF) – America’s pure evil is unequaled by any previous regime in history – inflicting more harm on more people over a longer duration.

None match US ruthlessness. Centuries of slaughter reduced its native population to a small fraction of its original numbers.

Five centuries of slavery were horrific. Black Africans were captured, branded, chained, force-marched, beaten, encaged, and stripped of their humanity.

Around 100 million human beings were sold like cattle. Millions perished during the Middle Passage, packed into filthy coffin-sized spaces, filled with human excrement, victims of dysentery, smallpox and other epidemic-level diseases, women raped and beaten, others flogged or clubbed.

Anyone believed diseased was dumped overboard like garbage. Modern-day genocide continues in new forms. WW II and endless US wars following involved mass extermination, countless millions perishing from violence, starvation, preventable diseases and overall deprivation.

Civilians are treated as ruthlessly as combatants in all US wars. State-sponsored genocide reflects their barbarity, ongoing in multiple theaters now.

High crimes demanding accountability go unreported. Wars of aggression masquerade as humanitarian intervention, responsibility to protect and democracy building.

Unparalleled US hubris and arrogance threaten humanity’s survival. America is the world’s leading exponent of terrorism, ISIS and likeminded groups its creation, CIA operatives teaching their recruits the fine art of committing atrocities.

All US wars are waged lawlessly without mercy. John Kerry’s indictment of Daesh’s (ISIS) genocidal crimes belies its US creation, America bearing full responsibility for its existence and criminality.

On Thursday, Kerry ignored where blame lies, saying “(i)n my judgment, Daesh is responsible for genocide against groups in areas under its control, including Yazidis, Christians and Shia Muslims.”

“Daesh is genocidal by self-proclamation, by ideology, and by actions, in what it says, what it believes, and what it does.”

Its fighters are “also responsible for crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing directed at these same groups, and in some cases also against Sunni Muslims, Kurds, and other minorities.”

Claiming “what (it) wants to erase, we must preserve” belies longstanding US imperial policy – waging endless wars of aggression, using ISIS and other terrorists as proxy foot soldiers, wanting all sovereign independent states replaced by pro-Western puppet ones, believing genocidal slaughter is a small price to pay.

Obama, Kerry, as well as other current and earlier top US officials are unindicted war criminals – guilty of the supreme crime against peace, responsible for genocidal mass murder.

    Graham Phillips is a British journalist and blogger, he has covered the ethnic cleansing campaign in the Donbass extensively and has been taking his live footage of US/EU’s dirty war to the Western media. Graham Phillips went to cover a pro-Nazi meeting in Latvia, the authorities didn’t like that it was being reported and expelled him for three years,”

    Freedom of expression and freedom of the press are the corner stone of democracy, there is no democracy in Europe, the EU has crushed it. The EU only offers more corruption, more austerity, more terrorism and more war. Europe is going fascist and the criminal elite are taking over, limits must be placed on the elites wealth, this way we can limit the damage that they do.

      Does it occur to you that Europe is US occupied? Nothing can be more corrupt and murderous and insane than the construct called USA.

    So, barbarism is in American blood. Jews only came in to exploit it.

    • Occam’s Razor

      No, that’s wrong. The “pilgrims” were peaceful and established interest free fiat currency and started a hemp economy, the economy boomed. The talmudic bankers from England found out and tried to destroy the colonies and put taxes, interest bearing fiat currency, and gun control on the colonies to oppress them.

      Long story short, the greatest censored story in our history, the Queen of England literally owns the US…she owns the Fed, the IRS, the CIA, the FBI, etc., she owns it all, including “Israel”, and she wants to turn the US in New Jerusalem! If you do the research, the proof of all that is there.

      And, either Trump is their controlled opposition and he’ll lie his way into office as Obama, Bush, and Clinton did, or they’ll JFK, RFK, or MLK Trump, or perpetrate another false flag event, all of which won’t work anymore. We know. So, they go to prison or We The People will shun and peacefully boycott them out of existence.

    When America dies and takes the west with it folklore will tell of a cruel, murderous race of evil men across the sea who sent death and destruction to wipe out simple cultures and steal the minerals under their feet. They’ll tell it for thousands of years…if mankind survives Fukishima.
