United States backed Genocides: From Guatemala to Congo

By GLEN FORD | BLACK AGENDA REPORT | MARCH 28, 2013

Guatemala has put its U.S.-backed genocidal maniac on trial, but Washington continues to protect its agents of mass murder in the Democratic Republic of Congo. “There is no auditorium big enough to hold the all the living Americans who should justly be charged with genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.”

The man who unleashed a genocide against the Maya Indians of Guatemala, former dictator and general Efrain Rios Montt, went on trial for his crimes against humanity in Guatemala City, this week. By all rights, the 86 year-old Montt should be joined in the dock by scores of still-living United States officials, including former President George Bush the First.

“The genocide would have been impossible without the United States.”

Back in 1954, the CIA overthrew the reformist government of President Jacobo Arbenz, whose land reform measures had angered the United Fruit Company. The U.S. termination with extreme prejudice of Guatemalan democracy ultimately led to a 36-year rebellion and civil war, with the Americans backing a succession of dictators.

General Montt was the most monstrous. In the 1980s, his regime declared total war on the Mayan people of the country’s highlands. Whole villages were massacred and entire regions laid waste as the military attempted to drain the human sea in which the guerilla movement swam. Army documents show clearly that the native Maya were targeted for extermination because of their ethnicity; that all Maya – a majority of Guatemala’s population – were considered enemies of the state. Rios Montt is the first Latin American former head of state to be charged with genocide in his own country.

However, this crime is not Rios Montt’s, alone. The genocide would have been impossible without the United States, which had run the show in Guatemala since 1954 and had armed the general to the teeth. The U.S. corporate media like to call President Ronald Reagan the “Great Communicator” but, in Guatemala, he was the Great Exterminator, encouraging and financing General Rios Montt’s orgy of mass murder.

Reagan described the racist butcher as “a man of great personal integrity and commitment” who was “getting a bum rap.” All told, a quarter million or more Guatemalans died in the 40 years since the CIA robbed them of their democracy and independence.

“The Maya were targeted for extermination because of their ethnicity.”

In 1999, when the civil war was over, President Bill Clinton apologized for the harm done to Guatemala by the United States. But by then, Clinton had already set in motion a far larger genocide in the Democratic Republic of Congo – a U.S.-sponsored holocaust that has so far claimed 6 million lives.

In a just world, Slick Willie would join an auditorium full of Obama, Bush and Clinton administration operatives who, over the space of 16 years, made eastern Congo the charnel house of the planet. Susan Rice would have a place of prominence in this vast assemblage of criminals, as among the most culpable for the worst bloodbath since World War Two.

In fact, there is no auditorium big enough to hold the all the living Americans who should justly be charged with genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. There are too many – great crowds of them from each administration, especially in the last ten years, since the invasion of Iraq. Imperialism in its last stages maintains an ever-lengthening Kill List.

Guatemala is coming to grips with its past, in a trial that will probably last a few months. The United States has an infinity of crimes to answer for.

How Psychiatric Drugs Can Kill Your Child

THE REAL AGENDA | MARCH 27, 2013

Psychiatric disorders are not medical diseases. There are no lab tests, brain scans, X-rays or chemical imbalance tests that can verify any mental disorder is a physical condition.

The Untold Story of Psychotropic Drugging and The Marketing of Madness: Are We All Insane? comes this searing new documentary, exposing how devastating—and deadly—psychiatric drugs can be for children and families.

Behind the grim statistics of deaths, suicides, birth defects and serious adverse reactions is the human face of this global drugging epidemic—the personal stories of loss and courage of those who paid the real price.

Psychiatrists claim their drugs are safe for children?

Once you hear what eight brave mothers, their families, health experts, drug counselors and doctors have to say instead, you will come away convinced of one thing…

Psychiatrists are DEAD WRONG.

Psychiatry’s Reign of Terror in an Age of Fear

THE REAL AGENDA | MARCH 25, 2013

We live in the very picture of a modern society.

Seemingly secure. Seemingly safe. Seemingly happy.

But life isn’t always as it appears.

Psychiatry’s history of atrocities can be found everywhere.

But nowhere can we see them more clearly than in psychiatry’s very birthplace—Germany.

Drawing from extensive research and interviews with psychiatric experts and victims, this shocking documentary reveals the sordid story of psychiatry from its earliest beginnings to present day.

It is a seldom-told tale of false claims, damaging treatments, and the ultimate in human cruelty.

Filmed in Germany and Austria, The Age of Fear: Psychiatry’s Reign of Terror, draws from over 80 interviews of psychiatric experts, historians and survivors. Containing shocking personal testimonies and stark inside footage, the documentary tells the true story of psychiatry’s sordid history and current practices, revealing how its reliance on brutality and coercion has not changed since the moment it was born.

“If some doctors harm—torture rather than treat, murder the soul rather than minster the body—that is, in part, because society, through the state, asks them, and pays them, to do so.

“We saw it happen in Nazi Germany, and we hanged many of the doctors. We see it happen in the Soviet Union, and we denounce the doctors with righteous indignation. But when will we see that the same things are happening in the so-called free societies? When will we recognize—and publicly identify—the medical criminals among us?”

Syrians attacked with chemical weapons in Aleppo, say reports

Both the Syrian government and the terrorists groups in charge of the conflict in Syria deny using chemical weapons

By LUIS MIRANDA | THE REAL AGENDA | MARCH 19, 2013

The Syrian government accused rebel militias that vie for control of the country of using chemical weapons in an attack in the southern province of Aleppo. According to the Information Ministry of Syria, 16 people died as a result of the attack.

In previous weeks and months, Western military forces issued a warning about the use of chemical weapons on the civilian population, with U.S. President Barack H. Obama threatening military action if Assad attacked his own people. This attack may then be the beginning of a set up by Western supported insurgents to create an excuse for a full invasion of Syria.

Syrian Information Minister, Omran Al Zoabi, said on Tuesday that the rebels used chemical weapons in an attack on Aleppo in which, in addition to the 16 deaths, mostly civilians, there were at least 86 wounded, mostly in critical condition. “This is a dangerous escalation,” said Al Zoabi on state television in an interview in which he said that Turkey and Qatar, official supporters of the rebels, are responsible for the “legal, moral and political” consequences of the attack.

Several rebel groups rejected the accusations on Tuesday and instead accused the regime of being responsible for the launch of a Scud missile loaded with these materials. “We have no long-range missiles or chemical weapons. If we had them, we would not employ civilians as a target,” said military spokesman Istanbul Lobre Sirius, Louay Muqdad, to AFP.

The regime has, in addition to conventional arsenals, vast reserves of sarin, mustard gas and cyanide. One of the concerns of the international community is that either the regime used these chemical weapons or that terrorists groups linked to the rebels and al-Qaeda in Syria who were brought to fight the Assad regime, get their hands on chemicals weapons handed out to them by Western supporters.

The news agency SANA did not specify what type of chemical weapon were used by the rebels, who the Assad regime has been fighting for over two years and that is composed by terrorists brought in from Jordan, Turkey, Qatar and other neighboring countries. The Syrian war, in which the West is heavily invested, has already claimed the life of more than 70,000 people and caused one of the largest migrations of refugees –more than one million– in the region.

Last week, the head of Israeli military intelligence, Brigadier General Aviv Kochavi, told a conference that he believes Assad is preparing for the use of its chemical arsenals. “Assad retains control over chemical weapons, air force and military equipment from Syria. Assad is making preparations to use these chemical weapons. He has not yet given the order, but is preparing for it,” he said. Israel is said to have requested that the United States attacks Syrian sites where they believe the Assad regime houses its military arsenal.

In August, U.S. President Barack Obama, who tomorrow will visit Israel, warned the Syrian government that if it used chemical weapons against its own people it would face a U.S. military intervention. Until today, the prospect of a chemical attack from the part of the Assad regime has been null, and continues to be, but the use of chemical weapons against civilians –either by Assad or the rebels– is the perfect excuse to invade the country with foreign troops. Several attempts by the United States and some European countries to drive through United Nations resolutions to attack Syria have failed due to the vetoes by Russia and China.

Baby Girl Dies Hours After Getting 5 Vaccinations

By CHRISTINA ENGLAND | VACTRUTH | MARCH 19, 2013

On February 21, 2013, a one month-old baby girl died after receiving her first vaccinations. Baby Ayushi Gupta died at the Maltibai Hospital, Thane, West Mumbai in India just hours after receiving her vaccinations for Hepatitis B, DPT (diptheria, pertussis and tetanus) and oral pulse polio drops.

Her parents blame her death on the vaccinations and have filed a complaint with the Thane Nagar police station against the hospital for negligence.

Just before her vaccinations, Ayushi’s parents, Amit and Lata Gupta, informed the hospital that their baby was unwell and had a cough. After examining the baby, doctors told her parents that the cough was caused by a change in the weather and continued with the vaccinations.

FIVE VACCINES LATER, THEIR DAUGHTER IS GONE

According to reports, Ayushi began to cry immediately after receiving the vaccinations. However, doctors informed her anxious parents that it was possible that she would cry the entire day, as this was a common side effect of the vaccinations! They advised her parents to take her home and feed her two hours later.

The Mumbai Mirror, reporting on the story, issued a statement from her parents, who said:

“We brought her home and fed her milk around two hours later. Around 7 pm, her eyes were shut and we assumed that she had fallen asleep,” Amit said. “When my wife tried to wake her up, she did not move.” [1]

On finding their baby ill, they immediately rushed the sick infant to the Maltbai Hospital. Sadly, it was too late and Ayushi was pronounced dead on arrival.

According to The Mumbai Mirror, Senior Inspector P. Thorat from Thane Nagar Police Station told reporters that they had recorded statements from the all the staff responsible for administering vaccinations and they had checked the vaccine batches.

Experts reported that adverse reactions after vaccinations were rare and that 22 other children received the vaccines and were said to be fine.

A TRAGIC PROCEDURE

I would like to ask those experts two important questions:

1. As Ayushi was sick on the day of her vaccinations, was it appropriate for her to receive her vaccinations in the first place?

2. Seeing that Ayushi was so distressed upon receiving her vaccinations, why wasn’t she monitored by the hospital for 24 hours, just in case?

In the Western World, it is unusual for a child this young to receive so many vaccinations at one time, but according to the Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) vaccination schedule, this procedure is normal. [2] In fact, as soon as a child is born in India, they are given the BCG, OPV O (oral polio) and the Hep B vaccination. This vaccination schedule is especially frightening when you consider that, according to the mainstream media, polio has been almost been completely eradicated in India. [3)]

THE REAL DANGER IS NOT POLIO

If polio has been almost completely eradicated, then why is it necessary to vaccinate newborn babies with the polio vaccination at birth and continually for the first five years of their life? According to the Indian vaccination schedules, children in India receive the polio vaccine at  the following ages:

  • Birth
  • 6 weeks
  • 10 weeks
  • 14 weeks
  • 6 months
  • 9 months
  • 16 –18 months
  • 4-5 years

In fact, children in India receive four shots of the IPV (inactivated polio vaccine) and four doses of the OPV (oral polio vaccine) before they are five years old. Eight polio vaccinations seems like an awful lot of vaccines for an illness that has almost been eradicated, doesn’t it? Is it any wonder that babies are dying?

“>The vaccination schedule according to the Indian Academy of Pediatrics.

The Indian vaccination schedule recommended by the Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP).

I felt physically sick when I read just how many vaccines these small, fragile babies and children are receiving. Alarmingly, they can receive fifty or more vaccinations by the time that they are five years old! Admittedly, some of these vaccinations are triple vaccines such as the MMR and DTP.

Even when you take this fact into account, this is an incredibly high number of vaccinations to give a young child, especially when you consider that many of the children receiving these vaccines are sick, malnourished and may live in appalling conditions with no access to clean drinking water.

Children who are considered “high risk” are administered an additional seven vaccinations. Their immune systems are already under stress as they battle conditions such as HIV infection, chronic cardiac and pulmonary disorders, asthma, liver disease, renal issues, diabetes, hematologic concerns. Children who are receiving long-term steroid therapy, salicylates, immunosuppressive treatment, or radiation therapy are also administered the additional vaccines. How can their already compromised immune systems handle over fifty vaccines containing multiple toxic ingredients?

One important point that the mainstream media conveniently forgets to mention is this: a recently published paper suggested that increased administration of OPV doses among children in India has been associated with increases in acute flaccid paralysis (AFP), which is as crippling and deadly as wild type polio paralysis! This is what you could call pulling the wool over the public’s eyes.

Dr. Mercola reported in August 2012:

“A paper published earlier this year in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics should have made headlines around the globe, as it estimated there were 47,500 cases of a polio-like condition linked to children in India receiving repeated doses of oral polio vaccine in 2011 alone. The incidence of non-polio Accute Flaccid Paralysis (AFP) in India is now 12 times higher than expected and coincides with huge increases in OPV doses being given to children in the quest to “eradicate” wild type polio infection and paralysis.” [4]

So, in a bid to stop the spread of polio, a disease which according to Bill Gates has already been almost completely eradicated, he, along with many of the organizations he works with, have legitimized paralyzing children with the polio vaccinations supposedly administered to protect them. I say this because if Bill Gates and “humanitarian” organizations were truly concerned about the welfare of these children, they would have stopped using the OPV vaccinations completely after the above report was published.

Instead, this type of legitimate genocide is what Bill gates and his army of helpers call God’s work, while the government, big pharma and the medical profession call it health care!

CONCLUSION

Interestingly, the OPV vaccinations were discontinued in the USA in 2000 because they were causing vaccine-associated paralytic polio. Rather than destroy these life-threatening vaccinations, these vaccines, along with many other discontinued and dangerous vaccines, were shipped over to the developing world to be used there. [5]

Sickening, isn’t it? Not according to Bill Gates, who says that in six years polio will be wiped off the planet. He said:

“We are on the verge of doing something we’ve never been able to do before—reaching the vast majority of children in the remotest places in the world.” [6]

What he did not mention, of course, was the fact that these vaccinations are causing many of the children to become paralyzed with AFP instead or even dying, as in baby Ayushi’s case. How many other children have died after receiving these vaccines without their death being reported? I would like to ask Mr. Gates why he feels it necessary to give children in India four doses of a vaccine that was banned from his own country, and whether he would be prepared to vaccinate his own children with the same vaccine?
