Murder by US/Israel axis.

This appears today in the Guardian newspaper produced in England: "An investigation by Reuters last October noted how, under the Obama administration, US citizens accused of involvement in terrorism can now be "placed on a kill or capture list by a secretive panel of senior government officials, which then informs the president of its decisions … There is no public record of the operations or decisions of the panel … Neither is there any law establishing its existence or setting out the rules by which it is supposed to operate."

So the US is murdering people, including its own citizens and this is not being told to the US people. THis is a secret terrorist panel. This "panel" which decides on who should be murdered can designate anybody it likes as a "terrorist" and order them to be killed. It can designate a strike leader, an Occupy activist, in the US or abroad, anybody and order them killed. Remember it was one such government panel that organized the murder of Martin Luther King.

Let us consider another aspect that follows from this. If this unelected panel can decide who should be murdered it must have somebody to do the murdering. That is the US government under Obama and through this panel are running death squads. Just imagine the reaction if the Iranian government was running death squads and murdering US scientists in the US.

The people of the middle east are not stupid they know what is going on. The US government on behalf of its big oil companies and to try and tighten its grip on Central Asia are running death squads and murdering whoever it wishes in the region. Talk about who is the top recruiter for organizations who hate the US government and US capitalism and its allies in the region. These policies of the US government are the top recruiters.

One after another of the top US capitalist politicians say they have no problem with this murder campaign. These representatives of US capitalism are so arrogant they think they can go to any country in the world and murder whom they wish with no blow back. These people endanger the lives of all Americans not to mention endanger the lives of people everywhere whom they wish to designate as terrorists. These people are murderers.

I heard one of these people yesterday justifying the urinating by US marines on the dead bodies of Taliban fighters. He said that was the way things went in war. US capitalism carries out water boarding on prisoners in its custody, it designates whom it wishes as terrorists and murders them, including US citizens. US capitalism is a barbaric regime. And it does all this in the name of the US people. The US working class must stand up and disown these criminal policies and reach out a hand of unity to the working class people of the world and campaign for the withdrawal of all US forces of occupation and and end to all wars.
