Neocons Make Excuses for Mass Murder
- Neocons Make Excuses for Mass Murder
Saturday November 04th 2006
In America, instead of facing justice, criminals from up high
usually write memoirs, or become "elder statesmen," and are
interviewed, settling comfortably into the historical record, either
oblivious to or proud of the swathe of blood and gore that enshrouds
For instance, take the neocons, who should be filling up the docket
at the Hague for plotting and executing the invasion and occupation
of Iraqcurrent death total, 650,000, with millions floundering in
abject miserybut are instead allowed to walk free and talk freely
with David Rose, Vanity Fair contributing editor.
Richard Perle, Michael Ledeen, Frank Gaffney, Kenneth Adelman, David
Frum, Michael Rubin, Eliot Cohenthese comprise the very marrow of
the neocon criminal camarilla. Rose interviews them as one would
interview any petty bureaucrat (Adolf Eichmann comes to mind).
Rose's article, or the short preview here, casts the neocons as
pentiti, the Italian word for those who have repented.
Well, sort of, as the sociopath rarely repents, but instead blames
others, as the neocons blame Bush and his obsequious followers and
lackluster appointees, all outside the neocon circle.
For instance, Richard Perle, long considered the Prince of Darkness
(apologies to film director Tatsuo Sato), now tells us the "levels
of brutality [in Iraq] that we've seen are truly horrifying, and I
have to say, I underestimated the depravity." In other words,
according to Perle, once the civil underpinnings were pulled out
from beneath Iraqby way of depleted uranium-enhanced bunker buster
and cruise missilethe result surprised even him, a seasoned
psychopath, experienced dissembler, and traitor (as "an Israeli
agent of influence" caught "discussing classified information with
someone at the Israeli embassy" in 1970, according to Paul Findley).
"According to Perle, who left the Defense Policy Board in 2004, this
unfolding catastrophe has a central cause: devastating dysfunction
within the administration of President George W. Bush," writes Rose,
avoiding mention of Perle's obvious conflict of interest with the
Defense Policy Board, thus resulting in his resignationaccording to
ace investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, Perle had business
dealings with Saudi investors and was linked to the intelligence-
related computer firm Trireme Partners LLP, which Hersh claimed
stood to profit from the war in Iraq. In other words, the more
depravity and the longer the United States "stays the course," the
more cabbage for the Prince of Darkness.
Had Perle possessed "delphic" vision, he tells Rose, "he would not
have advocated an invasion of Iraq." Back in the day, when Perle was
the "Study Group Leader" of the gang that crafted the "Clean Break"
document, originally presented to the Likudite leader of Israel,
Benjamin Netanyahu, a direct invasion of Iraq was not called for
either, but it was certainly alluded to, and a couple years later,
in an open letter to Clinton, Perle and clan declared the removal of
Saddam Hussein "now needs to become the aim of American diplomacy."
Call it gunboat diplomacy, or maybe cruise missile diplomacy. Perle
and the neocons were not asking for a polite tête-à-tête between
Clinton and Hussein, resulting in a step-down for the dictator.
Naturally, when things went bad, as they invariably do when Goliath
takes on David, the neocons turned on their impaired puppet, George
Bush, who is essentially a drug and alcohol dilapidated mental
wreck, a haphazardly chosen front man. It is perfectly within the
malicious personality of the neocon to turn on a nominal and
expendable leader when things get tough and do not go exactly as
"Huge mistakes were made, and I want to be very clear on this: They
were not made by neoconservatives, who had almost no voice in what
happened, and certainly almost no voice in what happened after the
downfall of the regime in Baghdad. I'm getting damn tired of being
described as an architect of the war," whines Perle, unable to
accept his role in massive war crimes, a bloody attainment close to
rivaling the crimes of the Nazis (all told, with Bush Senior and
Bubba Clinton on the mass murder roster, more than 3 million Iraqis
have died, and an incalculable number of others, mostly helpless
children, will die horrible deaths for the indeterminable future as
depleted uranium takes its ghastly toll).
For his participation, Perle should face a tribunal and then a
firing squadbut then so should the traitor Bush, his old man,
Rumsfeld, Cheney, Clinton, and the neocons numbered above.
Instead, they will be interviewed, courted, cajoled, paid handsomely
by various franchises, and will likely never face justice.
In Pax Americana, that's how the ball bounces, and long as it
continues to bounce without aberration, the criminals will be
treated as celebrities and "elder statesmen," at large to write
their extenuating memoirs, taking six figure advances while the
children of Iraq suffer endless birth deformities (the half life of
depleted uranium is 4.5 billion years).
