"We're not a bunch of ogres." Interesting left-wing reportage of the Drone Warriors, their Mercenaries and the Digital Stasi at ease in Aspen.

Shocking "Extermination" Fantasies By the People Running America's Empire on Full Display at Aspen Summit
Another forum sponsor was Academi, the private mercenary corporation formerly known as Blackwater. In fact, Academi is Blackwater's third incarnation (it was first renamed "Xe") since revelations of widespread human rights abuses and possible war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan threw the mercenary firm into full damage control mode. The Aspen Institute did not respond to my questions about whether accepting sponsorship from such an unsavory entity fit within its ethical guidelines.

Somehow, when I read about all the crap the national security state does, the word "protection" does not come to mind - except in the sense of, "What protects us from them?"

Extermination Fantasies By the People Running America’s Empire on Full Display at Aspen Summit

right. You couldn’t make this shit up.

These shameless filthy murderers are nothing less than evil personified. They mock Nuremberg. They should be lined up and shot like all war criminals deserve..every last one of them.

Never happen here my ass.

As if that weren’t enough to make you vomit…then there’s this…

Speaking of psychopaths, Holder “promises” Russia..we won’t torture Snowden.


Hitler is laughing his ass off.

Something isn't right here. I dunno. Something about the style in that article makes me wonder if it's not a satire. It seems just a tad overblown and in your face for it to be real.

That being said, I do not doubt that it reflects the attitude of many in the field.

To those who are naive fools who don't believe government capable of such evil:
You claim intelligence, but deny the overwhelming body of history on the basis of the childish belief (or fearful wishful thinking) that the nature of those who seek, and are ruthless enough in their pursuit of power to acquire it, has changed such that they will magically use it in a benevolent way "this time."
Tell that to the 262 million people murdered by their own governments in the 20th century alone ... People slaughtered for political reasons by their own, often "duly elected," governments.
To assert "That could never happen here ... This is America!" is more absurd than a fervent belief in the veracity of the story "Jack and the Beanstalk" or that the "Easter Bunny" really leaves hundreds of millions of multicolored eggs all over the world in a single, specific night.
Your thinking is the same as that of those who led every victim group in history to the slaughter, telling them "It's not that bad. If we just ignore their oppression and obey their commands one more time things will get better."
Those are the thoughts of those without the courage or character to oppose oppression and tyranny ... the sniveling "leaders" who condemned millions to death for lack of the backbone to fight back against evil.
