This Saturday we decided to test the popular printable lower to failure. All this talk about printable guns and gun parts, and for months, despite being the fitful ecstatics of wiki…
“We have to win this war or we will all be indicted for war crimes”
This memorable quote is attributed to Robert S. McNamara, secretary of defence during the Vietnam war.
What was McNamara relating? War is essentially always a crime against humanity. All belligerent nations will have to do everything in their powers to win the war. Only the winner can forge history by obscuring up the truth.
Let’s turn to Afghanistan. 2013
According to the SPIEGEL the Bundeswehr is left in the dark about what US soldiers are doing there. The Bundeswehr is innocent.
The facts, however are such: NATO is a military coalition founded and dominated by the US. Germany as an active alliance member is an accomplice as has been acting as an associate in Afghanistan for more than 10 years.
Collaborative murder and the conscious decision to look the other way is yielding profit for the world’s third largest weapon exporting nation while the US is carrying on. There is basically no difference between the actions of German officers in Afghanistan today and those of their uniformed grandfathers in Poland, Russia or Africa.
They are following leadership. They are obeying orders. They are denying personal responsibility.
Schizophrenia is blooming all over again, financed and prescribed to the population at prime time by the German royalty collection service, the GEZ.
A public German TV station, the ZDF, recently aired “Unsere Väter- unsere Mütter” (Our Fathers – our Mothers) and received rave revues. It was followed up by emotionally charged talk shows, featuring Dieter Thomas Heck who was allowed to speak about the terrifying hours while being buried alive under rubble after his hometown was bombed.
This was a traumatizing event, Mr. Heck. It was even more traumatizing, however, to watch Maybrit Illner, a so called “journalist” consistently avoiding to recognize parallel developments here and now in present time. She was skirting the crucial question:
What can we learn from the past? To what extent are German soldiers facing an identical situation today while stationed in other countries? Aren’t they once again killing for a “higher goal” the only difference being that this time the legitimacy is handed down from abroad?
Wars of the past and wars of today are fundamentally different and should not be equated. If comparisons were to be made, one couldn’t help but having to admit that wars of the past have predominantly killed civilians on a large scale just like wars of today. Want to bet, that you are aware of that fact, Maybrit?
A civilian who keeps quiet while witnessing homicide or observing one or more individuals in the act of planning and carrying out the act of murder on a regular basis, becomes an accomplice and is guilty by association.
The German legal code specifies this kind of passive behavior under § 138 StGB (Criminal Code) – Failure to report planned offenses. It states:
He, who carelessly fails to report, while having received credible knowledge about the planning, or execution of an unlawful action will be fined or punished with imprisonment up to one year.
Wartime conditions are expressly specified. It says:
He, who has attained credible knowledge of the intent or the execution of
murder (§ 211) or manslaughter (§ 212) or genocide (§ 6 International criminal law, CCAIL) or a crime against humanity (§ 7 CCAIL) or war crimes (§§ 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12 CCAIL)
at a time when the execution of those acts, or the success of the execution could have been prevented and fails to report it to the authorities or those affected will be fined or punished with imprisonment up to five years.
All of us, including German soldiers on site, civilians at the home front, “embedded” journalists as well as SPIEGEL-online junkies, should rightfully be court-martialed.
The actual new terrorist of today is holding an iPad instead of a shooter while being totally aware to the level of lies. He is updating himself on an hourly basis.
He is as innocent to NATO powered terror as his grandmother was when denouncing non arian neighbors for the sake of a better apartment.
There is no difference, none, between us and our Nazi-ancestors. We are idly watching while whole nations are being assaulted and annihilated, justified by the absurd propaganda label “war on terror”.
All of this is merely done to secure natural resources. Exporting democracy is but a new term for pillage. This has nothing, to do with Islam in the least.
The misfortune of Muslims can be reduced to the fact that they happen to live in areas where natural resources are abundant while we, the western nations, are unwilling to pay a fair price.
Orwell, Dürrenmatt and Kafka would be stunned by todays realities. All the dangerous pitfalls they consistently wrote about have been universally disregarded. Reality even went a step further. Their books are being recycled as blueprints.
The power of suppression is the psychological software program that runs 99% of us on a voluntary basis.
After publicizing the lies and the related war crimes of President Nixon in the “Pentagon Papers” which subsequently landed him on a list as #1 enemy of the state, Daniel Ellsberg was quoted as saying:
“You learn something about fellow man that you never wanted to find out. They listen, they understand and they learn but then they go on ignoring.”
Do we really want to continue our state of collective drowsiness? After Hiroshima and Nagasaki do we really want to act like sheep in a game that ultimately always leads to Armageddon?
The revolution won’t be televised.

Bahasa sangat berpengaruh terhadap produktivitas diskusi. Jika anda sering berbicara dengan orang asing dengan bahasa Inggris, anda pasti merasakan bedanya. Banyak orang bilang, orang barat jika berbicara lebih ‘to the point’, obyektif, dan enak diajak ‘brainstorming’ atau diskusi ide. Itu semua bukan karena perbedaan fisik, tetapi karena pengaruh dari bahasa kita. Contoh singkat saja:
Bahasa Inggris: “it is because they have”
Kalimat ini dapat diucapkan dalam 2 detik maksimal.
Bahasa Indonesia: “adalah karena mereka memiliki”
Kalimat ini menghabiskan waktu 4 detik untuk diucapkan.
Padahal kalimat ini mengantarkan pada inti pembicaraan. Jika pengantarnya saja sudah menghabiskan waktu, apalagi intinya.
Suku kata dalam bahasa Indonesia jumlahnya jauh lebih banyak. Sehingga sedikit kurang efisien dalam segi waktu dan energi. Kasus-kasus seperti inilah yang membuat proses diskusi dalam bahasa indonesia cenderung lebih bertele-tele.
