How dare you. How dare you not only taking away so much liberty and privacy of your own people, but now, in process, also to take away the the sovereignty of the rest of the world? How dare you to be that outrageously hypocrite? How dare you to possibly be able to attack my country’s freedom and to submit us to your will? How absolutely insane, short tempered, irrational, fearful are you really? Is this the USA you want to be? Is this the example you want to set for the rest of the world? Is this the right role-hegemony you have in mind?
You, USA, United Satans of America, became rotten to your bones. It seems that all logic, reasoning, and goodwill has left the USA – United States of America long time ago.
Dear reader, you’re probably wondering what provokes me. I’ll explain.
After 9/11 the scrutiny on its own people is overdone. The Patriot Act came into effect in 2001. In short, for the younger readers, it allows your government to do nearly everything legally what Snowden revealed. The Homeland Security Act came into force a year later. This combined all the different agencies into one big gigantic massive institution that has its fingers in everything in all its secrecy. In 2011 the NDAA came into effect, in which not only immigrated people who are suspected of terrorism can be detained indefinite without trail (Guantanamo) but also US citizens can be detained indefinitely without trail based on what? “Terrorism”? Note, it doesn’t need a judge, it doesn’t need a court, no, the government can just take you off the streets when they think you have something to do with terrorism to hold you forever if they want to. Actually, I don’t care so much on what your government is doing with its own citizens.
But! With the new act, in process, I am getting mad as the USA can sue/bring to court other nations as a whole if the USA thinks a citizen of that country has participated in terrorism in the USA itself. The whole bill you can read here: JASTA .
How it works in plain English
I exemplify very simplistically with a situation that can just happen at home how it works now:
Your kid hurts mine in my house. If I cannot solve it with you personally, as in asking you to punish your kid because he hurt mine then I go to the police, it comes in front of an independent court who finds out the truth and the judge sentences the parents of the wrongdoer to whatever appropriate punishment and the case is closed.
If JASTA becomes fact, it will be like this:
Your kid hurts mine in my house. If I cannot solve it with you personally, as in asking you to punish your kid because he hurt mine, then I get you into my house, sue you, punish you with a punishment I find appropriate to close the case.
Who can you turn to? Absolutely nobody at all! Oh! And! I always am bigger, always have more money and always have more guns, therefore I always have more power in any sense.
Yes, I will intervene in your family, yes, I will dictate how your rules are, yes, I will do everything possible to protect my interest all the time.
On 9/11, three towers miraculously came down. Yes, I have seen the second plane going into the second tower live on the TV. However, it is scientifically i.m.p.o.s.s.i.b.l.e. that both of the towers came down because of the crashes. It simply cannot. 9/11 to me is an inside job, orchestrated from and on US’s soil. Especially because ‘building 7’ came down too, which was further away and not being hit by a plane at all! Closer buildings never were hit by a plane either and stand strong ‘without a scratch’!
JASTA is aiming to give 9/11 survivors the opportunity to bring Saudi Arabia to justice because of their speculated involvement in it.
I am absolutely no fan of Saudi Arabia as well because their view on women, their view on punishment, how they do that, when they do that, all about human rights is off. But that is not the point. The point is that something happened on USA’s soil, the USA not being honest and open about it, and now seeking “justice” through a backdoor to wash their hands clean once and for all. The economic and political stability what is left in the middle east is undermined heavily and it only will get worse for everyone so there won’t be a winner at all. More people will be hurt and die. One of the very few credits I can give to President Obama is that he opposes JASTA, while all other presidential candidates approve of it.
However, the text of the bill is so broad! Saudi Arabia is just the first nation, and then? Who’s next? The Netherlands? In ‘De Volkskrant’ of today (20-6-2016) is an article about it on which I will translate a paragraph:
“With the new law the next scenario is possible: A group of people left behind after the attack in San Bernardino start a court case against the Dutch state because the secret service might have had intelligence on the attackers and have not shared it with the American agencies. The group’s opinion is that the Dutch made a mistake and without that mistake the attack possibly wouldn’t have happened. They believe the Netherlands is liable for all damage done, both physical and mental, and claim millions or even billions – it’s America after all. The Netherlands has to explain themselves in front of a federal court in the USA and justify which intelligence the secret service had at what moment and why it wasn’t shared with the Americans”. – Huib Modderkolk
How it works now.
Presently, if the USA believes, in this example, the Dutch state is liable, they can have a request to our own department of justice to investigate the claims, make a court case out of it and send the verdict to the USA. It’s not only for this example, but for all that is going on. If any country or individual or group or whatever is presently harming US’s interests, the USA can ask the government to bring the suspects to justice. I do am questioning how valid USA’s extensive ‘protecting US’s interest’ so provocative is all over the world. Just count their military all around the globe.
What if there is a dispute? Isn’t there a solution to that?
YES!!!! There already is!!! It is called the International Court of Justice in The Hague where countries, or (ex) politicians are being brought to court in cases of Crimes against Humanity. They do a very good job in putting political wrongdoers behind bars. However! The USA never ratified this court so no US wrongdoer can be brought to justice in international courts, nor they can use that court for their own disputes towards other countries. Terrorism orchestrated by any state surely qualifies for that.
As the USA isn’t ratifying it, they just can do whatever they please, however they please and be that arrogant, violent bully to the world. They can keep on going droning the world to “protect US’s interests”.
You know what that means, right? Again, very simple, I can kill your kid because I think that he, because of your parental behavior, might harm my kid somewhere in the future and that is harming me, so I am taking him out already.
Pakistan isn’t a good ‘parent’ in USA’s eyes, so, people, who might harm the USA in some way somewhere in the future, are randomly blasted in oblivious by a drone along with people, read women and children, who are even more innocent.
Countless people have died already because of the USA – the list goes on and on and on. They haven’t won any war since the second world war but killed so many innocent, went in so many conflicts all over the world, illegally too! It is too big of a risk for them to ratify any international system they cannot control to keep hands above their own head to rage on and help this world to doom.
“Leverage the internet. Tell us about that old-fashioned thing you love and share it with the world online so that it may be preserved digitally, indefinitely.” – Daily Post: Analog
Unfortunately, times since 9/11 change and it is impossible to go back before these days in which people all over the world had either consciously or unconsciously way more peace on their minds.
