US government fans homeland terrorism fear

US government fans homeland terrorism fear: "The US government and Washington elites are aggressively ramping up their 'war on terrorism' rhetoric and propaganda, stoking fear and paranoia in order to bolster their war agenda, and reinvigorate the mass public perception of new and growing 'homegrown terrorism' threats to the US homeland.
The next phase of America’s war abroad (under the management of a post-Bush neocon/neoliberal consensus), and the deepening militarization of the US homeland towards a full police state, are well underway."

The US War and Occupation of Iraq— The Murder of a Society

The US War and Occupation of Iraq— The Murder of a Society: "Iraq, once among the most advanced countries of the region, has been reduced, in terms of basic economic and social indices, to the level of the poorest countries of sub-Saharan Africa.
What is involved is the systematic destruction of an entire society through the unleashing of violence and criminality on a scale not seen since Hitler’s armies ravaged Europe in the Second World War."

Tony Blair in Iraq: War Criminal Admits Guilt

Tony Blair in Iraq: War Criminal Admits Guilt: "That tragedy, the depth of which Blair could never comprehend, is encapsulated by Layla Anwar, an Iraqi blogger, who wrote of a friend who said this week: 'I wake up in the morning and death sits next to me. I have my tea and she has one too. I walk and she accompanies me. I go to sleep at night and she is in my bed. I see death, I hear death, I smell death ... she is everywhere. When she will pick me up, is only a question of time.'"
American invaders are looking for their three soldiers perhaps captured by the resistance forces. What strikes me is the fact resources and manpower used in the “search” to find them. According to the invaders commanders 4000 thousand troops are participating in the “search.” The “search” includes breaking people’s houses no doubt, detaining and harassing people, terrorizing the inhabitants.
My question is, would Americans a bunch of fools or doing it for public relation purpose? Could they divert another batch of 4000 troops if other troops captured again somewhere in Iraq? It makes no sense to me. America needs to see the bigger picture here. Americans are captured where they committed multiple war crimes in Iraq. The only way out is not committing other crimes but admitting what they have done already and leave Iraq now.

'There are a lot of things that are different now [that the U.S. occupies Iraq], and one that has gone by almost unnoticed – but it's huge – is that ... we can now remove almost all of our forces from Saudi Arabia. Their presence there over the last 12 years has been a source of enormous difficulty for a friendly government. It's been a huge recruiting device for al-Qaeda."
