Warzone sent me crazy

Posted on Updated on

Steven Green, a former American solider serving 5 life terms for raping a 14 year old Iraqi girl and killing her parents and sister admits that he thought iraqi civilians were not human. All this because of what he says crimes fuelled by experiences in iraq’s violent ‘Triangle of Death’ where two of his sergeants were gunned down.

Green said those deaths ‘messed me up real bad.’ ‘There’s not a word that would describe how much I hated these people,’ Green said. ‘I wasn’t thinking these people were humans.’

Green after the killing of his sergeants, talked frequently of wanting to kill Iraqis.

The following is an extract taken from the Daily Mail newspaper. ‘At the Iraqi home, Barker and Cortez pulled Abeer into one room, while Green held the mother, father and youngest daughter in another.

Pfc. Jesse V. Spielman, of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, stood guard in the hall. As Barker and Cortez raped the teen, Green shot the three family members, killing them.

He then went into the next room and raped Abeer, before shooting her in the head. The soldiers lit her remains on fire before leaving. Another soldier stood watch a few miles away at the checkpoint.’

You can read the full article here.

If this is the trauma and after shock that a trained solider can feel; can you imagine how the ordinary Iraqi civilian must feel. How they have to live each day watching the foreign occupiers, raping their land of resources and whatever they can.

The war in Iraq, is an illegal occupation that has no standing in international law. The war must end now; the foreign troops must evacuate and allow the Iraqi’s to decide their own future.

    You jabber,

    How they have to live each day watching the foreign occupiers, raping their land of resources and whatever they can.

    How, pray tell, are we Americans “raping their land of resources and whatever they can?”

    All we are doing is trying to keep a lid on their native desire to slaughter each other. We’ve taken nothing from the land.

    I wish we had. It’d have made more sense than wasting American lives and wealth on trying to make a nation out of a bunch of Muslim vermin.

      My name is not Jabber. I think you are mistaken about America taking nothing. Please do not be fooled by the ‘BS’ your government and media feeds you. You have homeless, jobless in the States; I think the billions could be spent to help solve those issues but off course investing for the local Americans has very little return. Investing in ‘Black Gold’ has greater long term returns.

        Tell me one thing that America has taken from Iraq, not purchased as fair value but taken – raped, as you put it.

        Oil is Iraq’s economy. Of course we’re buying it and helping them sell it. That’s the only way to rebuild a nation that was impoverished by 13 years of UN sanctions that did no good.

        Well where do I start?
        Politically: America’s plan to destabilise the region and divide iraq into 3 areas is underway. The north as ‘Kurdistan’, the middle as ‘sunni’ and the south as ‘shiiate’. America gains a lot by have one of the largest embassies in the world in Iraq and has military base that will ensure it’s political and economical goals are met.
        Economical: Well the price of Oil sold to the West including America is only a very tiny percentage to what the real market value of Oil. So America is not buying Oil at Market rate.
        To add further:
        –Lockheed Martin, of Bethesda, Maryland, a major warplane builder, in 2007 alone earned profits of $3 billion on sales of nearly $42 billion.
        –Boeing, of Chicago, saw its 2007 net profit shoot up 84 percent to $4 billion, fed by “strong growth in defense earnings,” according to an Agence France-Presse report.
        –Northrop Grumman, of Los Angeles, a manufacturer of bombers, warships and military electronics, had 2007 profits of $1.8 billion on sales of $32 billion.
        –General Dynamics, of Falls Church, Virginia, had profits in 2008 of about $2.5 billion on sales of $29 billion. It makes tanks, combat vehicles, and mission-critical information systems.
        –Raytheon, of Waltham, Massachusetts, reported about $23 billion in sales for 2008. It is the world’s largest missile maker and Bloomberg News says it is benefiting from “higher domestic defense spending and U.S. arms exports.”
        –Scientific International Applications Corp., of La Jolla, California, an engineering and technology supplier to the Pentagon, had sales of $10 billion for fiscal year ending Jan. 31, 2009, and net income of $452 million.
        –L-3, of New York City, has enjoyed sales growth of about 25 percent a year recently. Its total 2008 sales of $15 billion brought it profits of nearly $900 million. Its primary customer is the Defense Department, to which it supplies high tech surveillance and reconnaissance systems.
        –EDS Corp., of Plano, Texas, purchased by Hewlett-Packard in May, 2008, had 2007 sales of nearly $20 billion. Its priority project is building the $12 billion Navy-Marine Corps Intranet, said to be the largest private network in the world.
        –Fluor Corp., of Irvine, Texas, an engineering and construction firm, had net earnings of $720 million in 2008 on sales of $22 billion.
        I could carry on.

        One – splitting Iraq into three lands based upon ethnicity and sectarian boundaries has more chance of stabilizing the region than any other option – though it may result in Iran annexing the southern area of Iraq.

        Two – You’re utterly mistaken about what we buying Iraqi crude for. We’re paying market value for it.

        Under the old Oil-for-Food sanctions that the UN imposed this was not true, but those sanctions – which killed 100s of thousands to no good end – ended when we finally removed Saddam.

        Three – I asked for what we’d stolen / raped from Iraq and you mostly responded with US companies who made a profit off the war.

        Since most of that profit was off of US purchases, how are any of them examples of taking from the Iraqis?

        Let’s start from the beginning first.
        America or anyone in the world does not have the right to decide which country to attack/invade. If they do so then call it what it is.
        This is an occupation of foreign land. Only America and Britain supported this war when the occupation began. No international approval was granted.
        Because it is an illegal war from the start, everything that America or American companies gains from the war is called rape: According to the definition of rape ‘ The act of despoiling a country in warfare’ (which America and her small Allies have done). Also the meaning of rape where’ destroy
        and strip of its possession.
        Currently America has control over Iraqi airspace, borders, Oil and Water.
        Now to your points:
        1. Who said splitting the Iraqis into ethnicity was what the Iraqis wanted? As a matter of fact when the war ended the biggest and march from Iraqis was calling for a unified Iraq. Placards from the March read, ‘No Sunni, No Shia, Only Muslim’. They wanted a united Iraq. Only Aermica and her Allies wanted a smaller disunited Iraq. ‘Let them kill each other’ was and is the policy.
        2. Well the price of Oil is controlled by Opec, which is headed by pro-western puppets who sell Oil at below market rate. How can Oil be cheaper then a bottled of Evian bottled water? The Oil-for-Food sanctions should never have been authorised by the Bullies of UN. They only served to weaken Iraq and only impact the local Iraqi. As a direct result of the sanctions over 1 million died. Please the small prints of the sanctions and what it restricted into Iraq, such as basic medical equipment.
        3. Well those American companies have only been able to have record profits as a direct result of involvement in the Iraq war. You cannot separate the two. One puppet regime (Saddam) has been replaced by the current puppet regime. And please do not tell me there is so called democracy in Iraq. Persecution and corruption is strong as ever. If all that is not raping a country then please tell what is?
