Impeachment for Libyan War of Aggression; 2-minute Pulitzer-cartoonist video

Activist Post documents and asks the question if enough Americans are prepared to state “emperor has no clothes” facts to impeach a US president in an important step to recognize and end US Wars of Aggression.

Importantly, war law prohibits the use of force, or armed attack by a nation’s military.

The US twisted this simple definition in their “legal” argument (section II, page 6) to claim their use of force in armed attacks on Libya was legal because:

  1. The US had an “interest” in using force.
  2. The US use of force without UN Security Council (UNSC) authorization helps the Security Council’s “credibility and effectiveness.”
  3. Use of force was “limited.”
  4. The goal of force is to help UNSC Resolution 1973.
  5. US military personnel were not physically within Libya’s borders.
  6. The above circumstances makes use of war legal.

Let’s consider each point stripped of its Orwellian veneer:

  1. Criminal war-murder is not excused because it’s of “interest” to the murderers.
  2. The US obviously undermines UNSC authority by war-murdering, and then claiming such murders help an agency with the specific legal purpose of preventing such murders.
  3. Criminal war-murder is not excused because the murderers claim they limited the number of murders.
  4. The UNSC has the authority to determine for themselves what is and is not helpful. Dictatorial usurpation of that authority is the opposite of help.
  5. War-murders are war-murders no matter where the murderers initiate fatal use of force.
  6. The above circumstances damn the “legal” voices as criminal accomplices.

Mark Fiore is a Pulitzer-winning political cartoonist. His 2-minute video shows US Orwellian hypocrisy in their war-murders.

Occupy is the opportunity for the 99% to recognize and end this Orwellian and juvenile US “leadership.”

Citizens: make the most of it to make us all proud. My contribution of resources to help are here.
