Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

Senator Molan's bullshit

We've got a new senator in the Australian government.  He's a retired Major General.  His name is Jim Molan, and I think it's probably fair to describe him, based on his (reported) past comments, as a white supremacist, anti-Islamist right wing death beast.  

Fair enough...

But what really gets my goolies is a comment he is widely reported to have made recently.  That comment was: "I've put my life on the line for major Islamic, Muslim countries in this world."  I think that is a crock of sh*t straight out of the "patriots" propaganda playbook.

Before I get deeper into Senator Molan's dodgy comment, I think I'd better establish some context for what's about to follow. 

Firstly, I will assume the reader has read Major General Smedley Butler's 1935 book titled "War is a Racket".  (It's a free download.)

Secondly, the reader needs to understand that I assert that any war we wage on foreign soil
for dubious and debatable imperatives is, in my view, nothing less than state sanctioned mass murder.

So, now back to Molan's "I've put my life on the line for major Islamic, Muslim countries in this world" comment:  Molan's major "achievements" were in the Iraq war during 2004-2005.

If Molan wants to tell us that his tour of duty in support of George W. Bush's war against the people of Iraq was waged for the benefit of the people of Iraq then he's either a deluded fool or a lying scoundrel of the lowest order. 

That war was fought for only one reason:  To bolster the West's energy interests (read "oil theft") in the Middle East.  The war's objective was to transfer Iraq's oil profits from the people of Iraq to Western oil corporations.  

That war killed in excess of one million Iraqis and gave rise to a massive insurgency which greatly swelled the ranks of al Qaeda and subsequently led to the rise of Islamic State.  

That war was a total disaster for Iraq.

Sorry, Senator Molan, but your disingenuous war propaganda bullshit doesn't cut it with those of us who have bothered to inform ourselves about the West's machinations in the Middle East over the last 100+ years.

So you have the same blight as as nearly strangled my #realshithole country. My condolences. Start salting away , with date and media source, all the quotes from Molan that will likely be shown false in time. Folks who run on ignorance/fear/hate must lie to keep up their world view...and should be made to face their inconsistencies as publicly as possible.

We are grateful on the right bank of the Pacific that our fascists are fat, fatuous and flagrantly incompetent. They will kill a few on the way down but they have already slipped on the banana peel of really pissing off working folks.
