at-Largely: Selling children into prostitution - Christian "Blackwater" values...

Selling children into prostitution - Christian "Blackwater" values...

The latest horror show from the Blackwater saga illustrates how absolutely dangerous white supremacy is when empowered with federal dollars and the power to kill.

Instead of being run out of all civilized society, Erik Prince's huge donations to the GOP earned him massive federal contracts and the backing of the US government as his employees raped children under the banner of an American flag.

White power politics is not a matter of free speech when used by the state as a tool of war. It is a war crime. Erik Prince is a war criminal. The fact that he and his black-booters are part of a private entity does not exempt their crimes under the Geneva Conventions. Why? Because Prince and his black-booters were employed by and empowered by the US government. The actions of Prince and the black-booters are carried out under the banner of the American flag. Their crimes are our crimes, especially since we - the tax- payer - paid for them. So, have a stiff drink and read the latest horror of this warped version of the so called Christian army:

"Since the revelation earlier this week of allegations by two former employees of security firm Blackwater that its owner was complicit in murder in order to cover up the deliberate killing of Iraqi civilians, explosive charges have continued to emerge.

"Perhaps the most shocking of those charges quoted by MSNBCs Keith Olbermann on Thursday from the employees sworn declarations is that Blackwater was guilty of using child prostitutes at its compound in Baghdads fortified Green Zone and that owner Erik Prince knew of this activity and did nothing to stop it.

"The declarations describe Blackwater as having young girls provide oral sex to Enterprise members in the Blackwater Man Camp in exchange for one American dollar. They add even though Prince frequently visited this camp, he failed to stop the ongoing use of prostitutes, including child prostitutes, by his men.

1. Check out this powerful song - about sums it up
The words are powerful if enigmatic -- but the singing by the Indigo Girls drives it home...



http://music.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=music.art...

SUGAR TONGUE
All the fur and fin will lose again
Cause our better is their worst reckonin'
And our fine-feathered friends will sing until they bleed
And how will we replace that symphony?

I've got the blackest boots, the whitest skin
Satisfy my sugar tongue again
Bring me love that buys us shoe-shine days
Guilded verses for your ethylene
And sing it to me free and clean

All the kids come home with foreign limbs
from hunting trips abroad they lose again
and we'll teach them how to talk
and whistle while they walk
and do the dirty work of battle hymns

I've got the blackest boots, the whitest skin
Satisfy my sugar tongue again
Sing me love that buys us shoe-shine days
Guilded verses for your ethylene
And sing it to me free and clean

Drinking tea with milk and Janjaweed
Pontificate on genocide or greed
With a spoonful of descent
For the orchestra of need
Is just enough to please this colony

I've got the blackest boots, the whitest skin
Satisfy my sugar tongue again
Bring me lullabies and morphine-dreams
Belladonna with her atropine
And sing it to me free and clean

- end -

2. Thanks Larissa!
Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 08:49 AM by 90-percent
This Blackwater case with the John Doe employees exposing their evil should be front page news all over America! My hope is this case will finally break open the awareness in America that so many medieval things were done on behalf of all American's by these sociopathic evil monsters. I must ask if anybody has seen any corporate media coverage besides Keith and Rachel this week? (They have both been doing excellent and detailed coverage of this the last week.)

These Blackwater monsters MUST BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE!

I feel we are mere months away from this prophecy by my hero Frank Zappa:

"The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way, and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater."

I would only wish to substitute the word "democracy" for the word freedom in the first sentence.

I am deeply disturbed by all the status quo moves by the Obama administration with regards to keeping all the Bush treasons "in the past". What an utterly absurd concept! And the statute of limitations on many of their crimes is indeed running out so very soon so much more will be "in the past".

3. The Blackwater Charges/Allegations -- from TPM
just for kicks.

http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2009/08/the_b...

The murder charge: The former Blackwater employee, identified only as "John Doe Number 2," claims that, "based on information provided to me by former colleagues, it appears that Mr. Prince and his employees murdered, or had murdered, one or more persons who have provided information, or who were planning to provide information, to the federal authorities about the ongoing criminal conduct." John Doe 2 adds that "on several occasions after my departure from Mr. Prince's employ, Mr. Prince's management has personally threatened me with death and violence." The former Marine, identified as "John Doe Number 1," refers to "suspicious circumstances" under which informants have been killed.

The destruction of evidence charge: John Doe 2 claims:
On more than one occasion, Mr. Prince and his top managers gave orders to destroy emails and other documents. Many incriminating videotapes, documents and emails have been shredded and destroyed.
The religious charge: John Doe 2 claims that Prince "views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe," and that Prince "intentionally deployed to Iraq certain men who shared his vision of Christian supremacy, knowing and wanting these men to take every available opportunity to murder Iraqis."

The prostitution charge: John Doe 2 claims that Prince "failed to stop the ongoing use of prostitutes, including child prostitutes," during his visits to Blackwater's camp in Iraq.

The weapons smuggling charge: John Doe 2 claims:
Using his various companies, procured and distributed various weapons, including unlawful weapons such as sawed off semi-automatic machine guns with silencers, through unlawful channels of distribution.
