War criminals from the Foreign Policy Initiative implore House Republicans to ignore the people & the Constitution for continued war with Libya.

Bangkok, Thailand June 25, 2011 – For those that want a list of who is responsible for what ails America and the world, one could get a good start by examining the signatories of the Foreign Policy Initiative’s latest signed confession. Titled, “An Open Letter to the House Republicans” they implore House Republicans to not only support the un-Constitutional war being waged in America’s name on the Fortune 500’s behalf, but to “achieve the goal of removing Qaddafi from power.” Apparently we were all lied to when we were told the goal of our intervention in Libya was to “protect civilians.” As reported in May, Libya will be won at any cost, and the initial lies used to tip-toe us into the conflict were but a temporary pretense for a war of total domination.
Recycled PNAC sleaze: Now calling themselves the Foreign Policy Initiative, they constitute a full-time corporate and government subsidized war lobbying organization. Many of the signatories of FPI’s latest letter include members of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
Not only has the slaughter of those very civilians at the hands of NATO contradicted NATO’s stated purpose for intervening, so has the fact that the US and NATO are supporting rebels who are admittedly terrorists, who are photographed on a daily basis using the same indiscriminate weapons such as grad rockets the West has accused Qaddafi of using, and committing on record the same atrocities Qaddafi is baselessly accused of committing. Now apparently the real architects behind the operation, fearing that their bloodbath may be coming to a premature end, have revealed themselves and the true “finish line” for the war in Libya.
The letter exclaims, “We should be doing more to help the Libyan opposition, which deserves our support. We should not be allowing ourselves to be held hostage to U.N. Security Council resolutions and irresolute allies.” Utterly unfazed by not only casting aside the very international law they claim is giving them the right to murder Libyans in the first place, and having already cast to the wayside the US Constitution they are all accountable to, they reveal that indeed, they see themselves as accountable to no one. Such is the very despotic barbarism the corporatocracy, through their feckless puppet politicians and media organizations, have convinced thousands of brave Americans to go overseas and fight.
The letter concludes, “The United States must see this effort in Libya through to its conclusion. Success is profoundly in our interests and in keeping with our principles as a nation. The success of NATO’s operations will influence how other Middle Eastern regimes respond to the demands of their people for more political rights and freedoms. For the United States and NATO to be defeated by Muammar al-Qaddafi would suggest that American leadership and resolution were now gravely in doubt—a conclusion that would undermine American influence and embolden our nation’s enemies.” In reality, Libya is meant to serve as an example to other nations targeted by these meddling, thuggish, unaccountable global despots. Failure in Libya would not “embolden our nation’s enemies,” but rather embolden those seeking justice against the signatories and architects of the current engineered unrest festering worldwide.
The following names represent not only Libya’s real enemies, but America’s as well. These traitors need to be watched, reported on, arrested by law enforcement, and put on trial for their crimes. Additionally, the corporations they do business with and represent need to be brought to their knees through a merciless full-spectrum boycott, and every sentator or representative that shakes their hands, deals with them, or heeds their calls (Lieberman, McCain, Graham, to name a few), voted out of office forever. Look at these names; each one has a story of treason and betrayal against the great American Republic that could fill a book. After reading each name, please contact your representatives in Congress and politely tell them that should they heed this letter from these degenerate, treasonous war mongers, they will be unemployed next election.
