To summarize: Three steps must be taken to smash the war
racket. #1 : We must take the profit out of war. # 2 : We must permit the youth of the land who would bear arms to
decide whether or not there should be war. # 3 : We must limit our military forces to home defense

The Crime Of
Condemned By The Law Of Nature And Nature’s
The Crime of Aggression is the most serious crime a nation can commit. The condemnation
of this crime is rooted in both Natural and Biblical Law. The preparation for committing this crime almost caused
David his kingdom. In judgment upon David for planning this crime, God destroyed tens of thousands of David's
fighting men, and had David not repented, the nation of Israel itself would have been destroyed.
Sadly, almost no preacher even deals with this subject and almost no Christian has ever heard it explained.
Yet it is one of the most important laws dealing with nations in the entire Bible. The committing of this crime
constitutes much of the current crisis in America and the world today.
In this DVD, Dr. Baldwin explains this almost forgotten and extremely important doctrine.
This is a message you will likely hear nowhere else.

Joe Biden’s Son Appointed to Board of Ukraine’s Largest Gas Producer
Global elite do not disguise efforts to gobble up Ukraine’s
May 13, 2014
Hunter Biden, the son of Vice
President Joe Biden, will lead the legal team of Burisma Holdings, the largest natural gas producer in Ukraine.
According to The West Wire News, Burisma Holdings is a considerable player within the Ukrainian natural
gas and oil industry. It holds licenses covering the Dnieper-Donets, Carpathian and Azov-Kuban basins and has
considerable reserves and production capability.
“Burisma’s track record of innovations and industry leadership in the field of
natural gas means that it can be a strong driver of a strong economy in Ukraine. As a new member of the Board,
I believe that my assistance in consulting the Company on matters of transparency, corporate governance and
responsibility, international expansion and other priorities will contribute to the economy and benefit the
people of Ukraine,” the Burisma Holdings website quotes Biden.
Biden is a lawyer with insider connections to the financial industry and government.
In addition to holding directorship for the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition and The Center for National Policy, he
sits on the Chairman’s Advisory Board for the National Democratic Institute (NDI). The NDI is a project of the
National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the taxpayer funded organization that does what the CIA did covertly 25
years ago, according to one of its founders, Alan Weinstein.
In March J.P. Sottile wrote about the economic interests of large transnational corporations in
Ukraine. In addition to corporate agricultural giant Cargill’s buyout of UkrLandFarming, the world’s
eighth-largest land cultivator and second biggest egg producer, Monsanto has expressed a “commitment to Ukraine”
and “the importance of creating a favorable environment that encourages innovation and fosters the continued
development of agriculture.”
In April Hunter’s father trekked to Ukraine to show support for the junta led in part
by fascists and ultra-nationalists. “There are currently ongoing threats to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial
integrity, and the most effective response to that is for all of Ukraine to pull together,” an Obama administration
said prior to Biden’s mission.
Beyond the standard rhetorical flourishes about democracy and freedom, Biden Senior’s
trip was about securing a proper investment climate in Ukraine.
The official said the U.S. energy consulting team will travel from here to
Slovakia and Hungary to work on ways of reversing the flow of some of Ukraine’s pipelines now supplying Europe.
Over the longer term, the official said, the U.S. government will work with Ukraine to help the government
increase domestic gas production.
What is the American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine all about
The Battle for Ukraine Was Planned in 1997 … Or Earlier
Neoconservatives planned regime change throughout the
Middle East and North Africa
20 years ago. Robert Parry correctly points out that the Neocons have successfully “weathered the storm” of disdain after their Iraq war fiasco.But the truth
is that Obama has long
done his best to try to implement those Neocon plans.
In 1997, Obama’s former foreign affairs adviser, and president Jimmy Carter’s national
security adviser – Zbigniew Brzezinski – wrote a book called The Grand Chessboard arguing
arguing that the U.S. had to take control of Ukraine (as well as Azerbaijan, South
Korea, Turkey and Iran) because they were “critically important geopolitical pivots”.
Ukraine, a new and important space on the Eurasian chessboard, is a geopolitical pivot because its very
existence as an independent country helps to transform Russia. Without Ukraine, Russia ceases to be a Eurasian
However, if Moscow regains control over Ukraine, with its 52 million people and major resources as well as
access to the Black Sea, Russia automatically again regains the wherewithal to become a powerful imperial
state, spanning Europe and Asia.
And now Obama is pushing us into a confrontation with Russia over Ukraine and the Crimea.
Late last year when Ukraine’s now-ousted president Viktor Yanukovych surprisingly canceled plans for
Ukrainian integration into the European Union in favor of stronger ties with Russia, the US may have viewed
Ukraine as slipping even further out of its reach.
In today’s Ukraine, the US runs the risk of being affiliated with anti-Semitic neo-Nazis, a prospect it
probably feels can be controlled via a friendly western media. But even if the risk is high, the US likely
views it as necessary given the geopolitical importance of Ukraine, as Brzezinski mapped out in 1997.
In other words, Obama is following the same old playbook that the Neocons have been pushing for more than a

As bombs start dropping in Syria and Iraq, the world is once again being asked to cower
in fear of a shadowy terror group that most people hadn't heard of just a few months ago. But even the most cursory
examination of ISIS's past, its connections, and the actors populating it reveal a very different story than the
one we are being asked to believe in. Fake terrorists. Foreign backers. False flags. Meet the new boogeyman, same

New Book Lets Winter Soldiers Be Heard
by Dahr Jamail
Aside from the Iraqi people, nobody knows
what the U.S. military is doing in Iraq better than the soldiers themselves. A new book gives readers vivid and
detailed accounts of the devastation the U.S. occupation has brought to Iraq, in the soldiers' own words.
Winter Soldier Iraq and Afghanistan: Eyewitness Accounts of the Occupation, published by Haymarket
Books Tuesday, is a gut-wrenching, historic chronicle of what the U.S. military has done to Iraq, and its own
Authored by Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) and journalist Aaron Glantz, the book is a reader
for hearings that took place in Silver Spring, Md., between Mar. 13-16, 2008, at the National Labor College.
"I remember one woman walking by," said Jason Washburn, a corporal in the U.S. Marines who served
three tours in Iraq. "She was carrying a huge bag, and she looked like she was heading toward us, so we lit her up
with the Mark 19, which is an automatic grenade launcher, and when the dust settled, we realized that the bag was
full of groceries. She had been trying to bring us food, and we blew her to pieces."
Washburn testified on a panel that discussed the rules of engagement in Iraq, and how lax they
were, even to the point of being virtually nonexistent.
"During the course of my three tours, the rules of engagement changed a lot," Washburn's testimony
continues. "The higher the threat the more viciously we were permitted and expected to respond."
His emotionally charged testimony, like all of those in the book that covered panels addressing
dehumanization, civilian testimony, sexism in the military, veterans' health care, and the breakdown of the
military, raised issues that were repeated again and again by other veterans.
"Something else we were encouraged to do, almost with a wink and nudge, was to carry 'drop
weapons,' or by my third tour, 'drop shovels.' We would carry these weapons or shovels with us because if we
accidentally shot a civilian, we could just toss the weapon on the body, and make them look like an insurgent,"
Four days of searing testimony, witnessed by this writer, is consolidated into the book, which
makes for a difficult read. One page after another is filled with devastating stories from the soldiers about what
is being done in Iraq.
Everything from the taking of "trophy" photos of the dead to the torture and slaughter of civilians
"We're trying to build a historical record of what continues to happen in this war and what the war
is really about," Glantz told IPS.
Hart Viges, a member of the 82nd Airborne Division of the Army who served one year in Iraq, tells
of taking orders over the radio.
"One time they said to fire on all taxicabs because the enemy was using them for transportation. …
One of the snipers replied back, 'Excuse me? Did I hear that right? Fire on all taxicabs?' The lieutenant colonel
responded, 'You heard me, trooper, fire on all taxicabs.' After that, the town lit up, with all the units firing on
cars. This was my first experience with war, and that kind of set the tone for the rest of the deployment."
Vincent Emanuele, a Marine rifleman who spent a year in the al-Qaim area of Iraq near the Syrian
border, told of emptying magazines of bullets into the city without identifying targets, running over corpses with
Humvees, and stopping to take "trophy" photos of bodies. "An act that took place quite often in Iraq was taking pot
shots at cars that drove by," he said. "This was not an isolated incident, and it took place for most of our
Kelly Dougherty, the executive director of IVAW, blames the behavior of soldiers in Iraq on the
policies of the U.S. government. "The abuses committed in the occupations, far from being the result of a 'few bad
apples' misbehaving, are the result of our government's Middle East policy, which is crafted in the highest spheres
of U.S. power," she said.
Knowing this, however, does little to soften the emotional and moral devastation of the
"You see an individual with a white flag, and he does anything but approach you slowly and obey
commands, assume it's a trick and kill him," Michael Leduc, a corporal in the Marines who was part of the U.S.
attack of Fallujah in November 2004, said were the orders from his battalion JAG officer he received before
entering the city.
This is an important book for the public of the United States, in particular, because the Winter
Soldier testimonies were not covered by any of the larger media outlets, aside from the Washington Post, which ran
a single piece on the event and buried it in the Metro section.
The New York Times, CNN, and network news channels ABC, NBC, and CBS ignored it completely.
This is particularly important in light of the fact that, as former Marine Jon Turner stated,
"Anytime we did have embedded reporters with us, our actions changed drastically. We never acted the same. We were
always on key with everything, did everything by the book."
"To me it's about giving a picture of what war is like," Glantz added, "because here in the U.S. we
have this very sanitized version of what war is. But war is when we have a large group of armed people killing
large numbers of other people. And that is the picture that people will get from reading veterans testimony … the
true face of war."
Dehumanization of the soldiers themselves is covered in the book, as it includes testimony of
sexism, racism, and the plight of veterans upon their return home as they struggle to obtain care from the Veterans
There is much testimony on the dehumanization of the Iraqi people as well. Brian Casler, a corporal
in the Marines, spoke to some of this that he witnessed during the invasion of Iraq.
"But on these convoys, I saw Marines defecate into MRE bags or urinate in bottles and throw them at
children on the side of the road," he stated.
Numerous accounts from soldiers include the prevalence of degrading terms for Iraqis, such as
"hajis," "towel-heads," and "sand-n*ggers."
Scott Ewing, who served in Iraq from 2005-2006, admitted on one panel that units intentionally gave
candy to Iraqi children for reasons other than "winning hearts and minds."
"There was also another motive," Ewing said. "If the kids were around our vehicles, the bad guys
wouldn't attack. We used the kids as human shields."
Glantz admits that it would be difficult for the average U.S. citizen to read the book, and he
believes it is important to keep in mind while doing so what it took for the veterans to give this historic
"They could have been heroes, but what they are doing here is even more heroic – which is telling
the truth," Glantz told IPS. "They didn't have to come forward. They chose to come forward."
For three days in 1971, former US soldiers who were in Vietnam testify in Detroit about
their war experiences. Nearly 30 speak, describing atrocities personally committed or witnessed, telling of
inaccurate body counts, and recounting the process of destroying a village. The atrocities are casual, seem
routine, and are sanctioned or committed by officers. Images from the war illustrate the testimony; there's a side
discussion among veterans about racism and a couple of interviews about the soldiers' self-realization. The
testimony appears in the US Congressional Record on April 6 and 7, 1971. A "winter soldier" contrasts with Paine's
"summer soldier and sunshine patriot."
