A Christ Follower's Dilemma

"KILL ON SIGHT" A Christ Follower's Dilemma
By Charles E. Carlson
Killing the wounded and bombing civilians is policy from the U.S.
top. How can this be denied, when they tell us so up front? If we
allow it, as in Abu Ghraib prison, a guilty few will be scapegoats
for the acts of their leaders.
An "imbedded journalist" traveling with a U.S. Marine squad that was
cleaning up hours after the so-called "fighting," photographed a
point blank murder with full sound and voices. The evidence is
unmistakable. Is it the work of a single out-of-control man, or a
growing mercenary military?
One individual, who we will call Marine X and who appears to be
unnamed to this day, was photographed in the act of deliberately
slaughtering a wounded man. Worse yet, we now know this
unfortunate, unnamed man was found in a mosque among the dead, where
he had been lying in his own blood for 12 hours, too weak to crawl
away. We are asked to believe the shooting was justified by the
shooter's fears, even though the camera recorded him shouting in
high-strung rage before he did it. Petitions are being filed in the
shooter's behalf, and "conservative" talk show hosts make demeaning
comments about the victims over 50,000 watt stations about human
beings whom they speak of as animals.
The U.S. press minimizes the crime by characterizing the victim as
a "combatant," though he was too weak to crawl, and an "insurgent,"
though they have no way of knowing if he was part of an insurrection
or "collateral damage." The Los Angeles Times put it this way:
"Televised images of marine fatally shooting an unarmed, wounded
insurgent in a Fallujah mosque were repeatedly broadcast on Arab
TV." The byline called the helpless man a "combatant." Marine X's
recorded voice reveals that he did not fear the man, that he
considered him less than human, and that he thought it his right to
kill him. We now know many thousands of non-insurgents have been
killed since the first shock and awe attack.
Either the imbedded press fails to look at such incidents, or it is
denied access to the worst of these actions. For whatever reason,
we are not being told the obvious, that indiscriminate killing of
everyone in sight is stated U.S. policy. The truth is coming out in
large and small pieces. We now have every reason to believe the
number of civilians killed in Iraq could be more than 100,000, and
we have been lied to about this from the start. Mohamed Malawi, the
puppet thug picked by the U.S. to rule Iraq, had the chutzpah to
say "no civilians were killed."
The L.A. Times, like most of the U.S.-Israeli controlled press,
fails to make the obvious point that this one photographed incident
is only the tip of the iceberg of hate murders of Iraqis. It is all
too obvious from many reports that murder is standard operating
procedure (SOP) in Iraq, and that the imbedded press fails to report
it except in rare incidents like this one. In most cases they don't
In another documented incident, four Iraqis were killed by Marine
rifle fire in a crowded mosque in Baghdad on Friday, November 19th,
while praying. It was the Muslim Sabbath at the crowded sundown
prayer service, and many more were wounded. This story was reported
by the Arab press and confirmed by the Washington Post. Had it not
been for Middle Eastern independent journalist Dahr Jamail, who
takes his life in his hands every day to report un-imbedded real
news, we would not have known this happened.
This disgusting act by Marine X in Fallujah was absolutely
predictable by anyone who bothered to read the pre-attack statements
of our leaders. Permission to murder innocents was telegraphed by
several Marine commanders before the invasion started. Every
statement emphasized massive killing. Several commanders as much as
said they would kill anyone they found alive. How can we expect
more humanity from Marine X?
This stupid or unlucky Marine X did what he was told to do right in
front of a camera, but no cameras were present when the original
shock force stormed through the mosque where the victim was wounded
almost 12 hours before, and there will never be a report of how many
of those shot were civilians.
We must not allow this incident to be blamed on one bad apple, as
was Abu Ghraib. Like Lynnette English, the lightweight but sadistic
sex queen of interrogators, Marine X needs to face justice, but he
must not be a dumping place for blame for our public policy and
those who support and implement it.
Every professional solder commander, every political Warmaker, and
every Judaized Christian leader who supported the war and made
Fallujah possible shares the blood guilt on the hands of the men in
Iraq, including the near idiot who committed the terrible deed on
This Marine X is not a fluke; he is the rule. He was naïve enough
to believe all the kill talk Marines are made to shout at the top of
their lungs a hundred times every day. He simply got caught crawling
out of a rotten barrel of apples. We know who murdered one man, but
who killed the 100,000 other Iraqi civilians buried in and under and
around the destroyed homes of Iraq?
Who is not guilty? Those who have stood against this war and
continue to condemn it at every evil turn and try their best to do
something to prevent it. If you have stood aside until now, join
Christ as a peacemaker.
Among the guilty, none are guiltier than the religious leaders who
know better. These professionals call themselves by Christ's name
but are anything but peacemakers. They are Pharisees who claim to
love justice and feed hatred with false doctrine. They are the
guiltiest of all, because they provide an aura of morality and even
nobleness to the warmongering that trains men to kill like a pack of
attack dogs and even tells them to enjoy it because the enemy is not
War veterans are already paying the price for their acts. A
mentally impaired veteran told a late night network interviewer and
a national audience of the agony he lives with, caused by images of
the many of those he killed, including three Iraqis he claimed to
have stabbed to death. The interviewer spared the tormented man by
not asking how he got close enough to them to stab them to death.
Our military has created a class of professional killers,
mercenaries in every sense of the word. Some will become callous
murders by profession; many more will have to live with the agony of
their acts. Unlike Vietnam, where most soldiers, including Marines,
were drafted or enlisted to avoid the draft, in Iraq every man is
there by his own choice. Not one can say, "I was there because I
was drafted and I did what I was told to do." Each one made a
The press works its subtle distortion in the face of indisputable
evidence. It fails to make the obvious point that Marine X's act
can only be the tip of the iceberg of thousands or tens of thousands
of slaughtered Iraqis since the onset of "Shock and Awe," a name
intended to imply unimaginable destruction and brutality. Field
commanders who stated before the first shot was fired that they
planned to kill anyone they found alive.
President Bush cast this war as a struggle between good and evil.
From the highest levels they use the kill word when speaking of
Iraqis. One Marine colonel, who sounded like a Baptist preacher,
was quoted as saying:
"... the enemy has got a face. He's called Satan. He lives in
Falluja. And we're going to destroy him. (TEACHING "VALUES" by
Marine X is an assassin, but he is only unique in that he forgot he
was on camera. No cameras or reports were allowed when the original
killing force went through the mosque killing everyone in sight and
leaving this one victim for dead. Nor is the exposure of this one
murder an isolated case. On November 14, the day before the killing
began, the following report was posted from interviews with Marines
"Some battalions are pushing through the city and others are
clearing it. Battalions like ours are coming from behind, going
house-to-house killing guys" said a US marine, Lt. Michael Prato.
(HANDSTAND, UK MONTHLY, November 2004)
Lt. Prato told the truth. His job was to come along behind and
murder the survivors, which is exactly what Marine X did, and that
is what the cameraman recorded only 24 hours later. There is no way
to minimize it or shift the blame to one man. The murder plans came
from the top, not from a cursing, screaming ignorant and sadistic
enlisted individual in a mop-up squad.
Unarmed men have been slaughtered; woman and children mutilated and
terrified. Some women have spontaneously aborted babies due to the
terrible shock and pressure of carpet booming. Every such hidden
death of an unborn child is a crime equal to the crime committed on
Blame the Christian and Jewish leaders who reelected Bush and his
war plans by registering and driving Bush voters. Had Bush lost the
election, there would have been no Fallujah, no matter how week-
kneed John Kerry is, because if had Kerry won, it would have been a
stunning mandate against war, and he would have been forced to seek
a more peaceful path.
The Christian leaders who rallied their people for Bush did so under
the terribly mistaken belief that carrying out the will of Israel's
brutal leaders is their duty to Israel. This unholy alliance
between a handful of Israeli terrorist leaders, one or two million
militant Israeli patriots, and 40 million or more Judaized
Christians has placed us in the morass of serial wars and spiraling
It has also made a murderer of Marine X and many more.
This secular, Judeo-Christian alliance also bears the blame for the
unbelievably brutal murder of an unarmed 13 year old Palestinian
girl shot dead at a checkpoint by an Israeli Colonel who riddled
her body with over 20 rifle rounds in front of he friends and
family. Without the support of the "Christian Right," this killer
of little girls could not have been cleared of all charges, as he
was. (GAZA GIRL DEATH OFFICER CLEARED)
The swing vote for the death mandate comes from the Judaized
churches of America. They alone, with the Israelis, say the Iraqis
are subhuman and God has ordained their liquidation, just as they
often say God "slew the Canaanites to make way for Israel 3000 years
ago." These apostate elders must suspect deep inside they are
enablers of death, and they mislead those who follow in the name of
Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.

churches now. Even if you choose to go back to help change the
friends you've left behind, withdraw all financial support. Join
