The Wikileaks, Julian Assange Diplomatic Standoff — Animated 


Die Montagskolumne #188 Pentagon-Protokolle

Die Geschichte wiederholt sich! Wie schon die Veröffentlichung der PENTAGON-PAPIERE (1945-1967) welche die gezielte Irreführung der US-amerikanischen Öffentlichkeit in Bezug auf den Vietnamkrieg offenbarte, sind die von Wikileaks veröffentlichten 400.000 geheime Dokumente  über den Irak-Krieg ein weiterer Beleg dafür, in welches Elend und Chaos der Einmarsch der US-Armee und der “Koalition der Willigen” die irakische Bevölkerung und die beteiligten Soldaten gestürzt hat. 110.000 durch die PENTAGON-PROTOKOLLE belegte Tote, 60 Prozent davon Zivilisten! Auch für diese Verbrechen wird nie irgend jemand zur Rechenschaft gezogen! Es werden Aufklärer – wie seiner Zeit Daniel Ellsberg und heute Julien Assange Edward Snowden und Bradley Manning –  diffamiert, kriminalisiert, gejagt und bedroht!

RIOT all over the world!

Immer mehr von uns

die, sei es mit Kunst, oder guter PR, friedlich gegen die korrupten Herrschenden und ihre religiös eifernden Unterstützer aufbegehren; die die Wahrheit ans Licht hacken und mit Hilfe von Menschen mit Gewissen, Kriegsverbrechen, Unrecht, Betrug und Lügen offenlegen, stehen unter Druck und sollen kriminalisiert, diffamiert und füsiliert werden. Wir dürfen das nicht zulassen! Wir werden belogen, der Bock soll zum Gärtner, zum Schuldner, zum Mörder gemacht werden!

Es werden Kriege mit Lügen angezettelt und geführt, deren Terroristen auf der Lohnliste der NATO stehen und mittelbar von NATO-Staaten bewaffnet werden. Die Massen werden mit perfiden Kampagnen und Parolen von links bis rechts, bis religiös, in Aufruhr gehetzt. Doch nie waren wir uns in all unserer Verschiedenheit weltweit näher als heute, in der kollektiven Einsicht, daß wir betrogen werden!

Julian Assange

Julian Assange wird verfolgt, weil er Informationen veröffentlicht, welche die Mächtigen kompromittieren, weil er Wahrheiten publiziert und damit Korruption und ernste Menschenrechtsverletzungen in aller Welt enthüllt!


Die Montagskolumne #177 Zukunft

Bei früheren politischen Streitigkeiten

mit der Generation meiner Eltern warf ich ihnen gerne vor, ihre Generation wäre die dekadenteste die dieser Planet je gesehen hätte. Doch heute wird mir gewahr, es ist die meine! Tausende demonstrieren in Hamburg eventmäßig gegen irrelevante Nazis und fühlen sich gut Widerstand zu leisten. In Europa macht sich derweil Nationalismus und Rassismus breit. Deutsche Wohlstandskinder demonstrieren gegen von den Diensten gesteuerte Nazis – das großes Thema! Derweil sind um sie herum und praktisch unbemerkt Europas Grenzen wieder da.

Gerüstet wird gegen den äußeren Feind, der eigentlich ein innerer ist, denn der ‚Feind‘ steht mittlerweile in Europa. Elf Polizeiwagen sind verbrannt, 38 Menschen sind verletzt. Eine Demonstration wurde verhindert. Gegen wen, oder für was die „Nazis“ marschieren, wurde mir von freier Presse und Regierung nicht genannt, „die braune Pest, Terror“, gilt es zu bekämpfen. Erst auf der Seite der NPD-Hamburg, durfte ich lesen: Es war für die Zukunft! Nazis für die Zukunft? Na ja, mit der Forderung Gas, Fernwärme und Strom gehören in Volkes Hand, bin ich noch einverstanden, den Wunsch nach Reinrassigkeit auf diesem unseren einzigen Planeten, kann ich nicht ernst nehmem.

Friedennobelpreisträger Obama lässt hunderte von Menschen abseits jeden Rechts gezielt töten und führt einen ausser Kontrolle geratenen Cyberkrieg: „Olympic Games“. Die, die eigentlich den Friedensnobelpreis verdient hätten, Assange und Manning, sitzten im Knast, weil sie uns verraten haben, daß wir von Verrückten und Verbrechern regiert werden! Die Monopolisten greifen sich die Energiewende und die, die an Vergeltung glauben, rüsten ihre brennstoffzellenbetriebenen, von Deutschland geschenkten Dolphin U-Boote mit Atomwaffen aus, Grass der ‚Antisemit‘ hatte recht!

Alles, während die größte radioaktive Quelle dieser Erde in Japan unter freiem Himmel vor sich hin strahlt. Derweil geht Europa unter, weil „Griechen, Spanier , Italiener  – weil Südländer zu faul sind“. Wir fressen zu viel Fleisch und überfischen die Meere. Afrika wird ausgebeutet, zu Tode subventioniert und versinkt in bewaffneten Konflikten, die wir ausrüsten! Egal, der Müll- und Waffenexportweltmeister schützt seine Handelswege und vergnügt sich dieser Tage erst einmal bei Spielen zum Europameister; dabei wurden abseits jeder öffentlichen Aufmerksamkeit schon immer die besten Geschäfte durchgepeitscht.

Private Manning’s Humiliation

Bradley Manning is the soldier charged with leaking U.S. government documents to Wikileaks. He is currently detained under degrading and inhumane conditions that are illegal and immoral.

For nine months, Manning has been confined to his cell for 23 hours a day. During his one remaining hour, he can walk in circles in another room, with no other prisoners present. He is not allowed to doze off or relax during the day, but must answer the question “Are you OK?” verbally and in the affirmative every five minutes. At night, he is awakened to be asked again, “are you OK” every time he turns his back to the cell door or covers his head with a blanket so that the guards cannot see his face. During the past week he was forced to sleep naked and stand naked for inspection in front of his cell, and for the indefinite future must remove his clothes and wear a „smock“ under claims of risk to himself that he disputes.
The sum of the treatment that has been widely reported is a violation of the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment, and the Fifth Amendment’s guarantee against punishment without trial. If continued, it may well amount to a violation of the criminal statute against torture, defined as, among other things, “the administration or application… of… procedures calculated to disrupt profoundly the senses or the personality.”

Private Manning has been designated as an appropriate subject for both Maximum Security and Prevention of Injury (POI) detention. But he asserts that his administrative reports consistently describe him as a well-behaved prisoner who does not fit the requirements for Maximum Security detention. The Brig psychiatrist began recommending his removal from Prevention of Injury months ago. These claims have not been publicly contested. In an Orwellian twist, the spokesman for the brig commander refused to explain the forced nudity “because to discuss the details would be a violation of Manning’s privacy.”

The Administration has provided no evidence that Manning’s treatment reflects a concern for his own safety or that of other inmates. Unless and until it does so, there is only one reasonable inference: this pattern of degrading treatment aims either to deter future whistleblowers, or to force Manning to implicate Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in a conspiracy, or both.

If Manning is guilty of a crime, let him be tried, convicted, and punished according to law. But his treatment must be consistent with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. There is no excuse for his degrading and inhumane pre-trial punishment. As the State Department’s PJ Crowly put it recently, they are “counterproductive and stupid.” And yet Crowley has now been forced to resign for speaking the plain truth.

The Wikileaks disclosures have touched every corner of the world. Now the whole world watches America and observes what it does; not what it says.

President Obama was once a professor of constitutional law, and entered the national stage as an eloquent moral leader. The question now, however, is whether his conduct as Commander in Chief meets fundamental standards of decency. He should not merely assert that Manning’s confinement is “appropriate and meet[s] our basic standards,” as he did recently. He should require the Pentagon publicly to document the grounds for its extraordinary actions –and immediately end those which cannot withstand the light of day.
