Against "Human Rights"

28-06-2004 23:04

The Kosovo war was fought "not for territory but for values" according to Tony Blair. The bombing of Afghanistan in 2001 was conducted to help "the oppressed people of Afghanistan", according to George W. Bush, so that they may know "the generosity of America and our allies". Meanwhile, according to Jack Straw, stopping the bombing "would only prolong the suffering of the Afghan people". Pro-war adepts could easily adduce similar comforting thoughts about the war waged on Iraq in March 2003. The ideology of human rights is not only unversalist, but also universally accepted.

28-06-2004 13:58

On the 28th and 29th of june politicians and military officials meet in Istanbul for the NATO summit.
For weeks protests against the summit take place in Istanbul and other cities against the NATO summit, globalisation of profiteering and power, as well as against the politics of the turkish government.
Whileas the turkish military and government are keen to get a “piece of the cake” which is called Iraq, a social movement is born on the streets.
About 24000 policemen and the declaration of state of emergency in Istanbul give the impression of Turkey being a proud host of the NATO summit.

Previously, I posted an article about fascist mass murderers and torturers from Latin America's "dirty wars" against leftists being employed by Blackwater. Now, it seems that former members of South Africa's secret police, who tortured and murdered black activists during apartheid, are also mercenaries in Iraq.
