Surveying U.S. actions in Cuba, Nicaragua, Turkey, the Far East, South America and elsewhere as well its many covert-ops, war of terror, and cold war
over the past half a century along with the modern American war in Iraq, America is just as much a terrorist state as any other government or rogue
organization. George W. Bush's 2003 invasion of Iraq drew worldwide criticism, in part because it seemed to present a new philosophy of pre-emptive
war and an appearance of global empire building. such has been the operating philosophy of American foreign policy for decades. Opponents of the Bush
administration's tactics consistently point out how the American government supported Saddam Hussein for many years prior to the 1990 invasion of
Kuwait (pictures of Donald Rumsfeld shaking Saddam's hand are easy to come by) as a means of pointing out how the United States is happy to fund
despots when it's in American interests. the repression of other nations' citizenry is, in fact, the very reason Americans support certain foreign
The Amerikan Empire under the reign of global corporate capitalism still controls, directs and manages the world economy in its endless quest for
market expansion as it knows that is must expand to live, though, it is already stretched out too thin in a way that is reminiscent of the Roman
Empire before its eventual demise.
Puppet-Fuhrer President Bush Jr. has gone completely insane, fails to heed the sound sane advise of his own savvy military advisers and instead
banishes them into national obscurity. Bush Jr. will be remembered in human history as the Dunce Decider that got the United States involved in unjust
wars of military occupation in the Middle East, especially in Iraq ~ the original true cradle of early human civilization.
The doomed foreign policies of the USA has resulted in millions upon millions of decent Muslims cherishing a burning deep hatred of Amerika, all
things Amerikan and billions worldwide harbor deep bitter resentments against the American people who they rightly believe allow their government to
run amuck in foreign territories either through overt support for the bogus War on Terror, through the cowardly apathy of the American people and/or
the dysfunctional Left-Wing Movement inside the United States.
In summary, the increasing corporate profits of big business go on as usual as the rich still get richer while the poor still get poorer. In the
context of connected reality, our main central class enemy is still the ruling class of Amerikan Corporate Capitalism, not temporary corrupt
politicians in the surface seats of state power who do not really call the shots behind the public photo-op scenes.
“We should strive for positive reforms as much as we can without forgetting along the way that a valid relevant revolution is the ultimate solution,
not mere reform upon a corrupt body politic. Let us not forget the grand strategic aim: the seizure of state power by masses of people led by their
The grand strategic aim remains the same: the seizure of state power by any means mandatory by an aggressive armed people.
We should pray for a peaceful non-violent true resolution of all these great global conflicts between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots’ yet be
prepared to defend ourselves against all evil predators. We should keep uppermost in mind that there has never been a real solid peaceful revolution.
Even those that claim to be so for now were preceded by and the result of decades of social chaos, turmoil and mass bloodshed. Armed with a keen
knowledge of history as a guide to action we should know that eventually civil war in at least scattered sites inside the United States is as
predictable as nightfall. We must never disarm ourselves with naïve pacifist liberalism as we get blown away or quietly starve to death. It is not a
debate of violent methods versus non-violent methods. It is really question of either fighting back and living or giving up and dying.
”Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.”
To me, as a Chicano-de-Aztlan, the most significant events of 2006 revolved around the huge immigrant rights marches that happened all around May 1st
2006 and were witnessed by millions of people worldwide. Even the Creator took humble notice!
At the time, the Bush Rogue Regime was fanning the fascist flames of combating global terrorism, waging an unjust war of occupation in Iraq and
instilling vile xenophobia (fear of foreigners) in average White middle-class Americans.
Back then, the most repressive immigration bill in U.S. history was being proposed called the Sensenbrenner Bill whose chief sponsor was Rep. James
Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.). It threatened to turn 12 million people into criminal federal felons and was the single spark that lit a prairie fire for the
immigrant rights marches as it would have turned into criminals all of the 12 million+ undocumented immigrants living in the U.S., along with anyone
who aided and abetted them. Mass conspiracy was and is inevitable.

Immigration Reform, Big Business, NAFTA and the Impact on the African American Workforce
In response, many undocumented Mexican immigrants, their families and supporters took the risk of marching in the streets to express their humane
rights as humane beings. The whole political-social landscape in relation to immigrants inside the United States was transformed and it is still going
through a deepening process of social changes.
These early immigrant rights marches were an extension and intensification of the earlier Civil Rights Movement led by Martin Luther King, Jr. yet
should also be seen in the larger context of the on-going global struggles for humane rights in general all around the world. It was beyond only
daily-violated Civil Rights, but all about the sublime respect for humane rights that are ordained to us by Creator God, not by any mere mortal
government. We are born with these humane rights as our birthright irrespective of their recognition by any man-made government!
So far, Black-Americans have failed to come out in their splendid strength and many numbers in support of immigrant rights for Latinos, as they are
aware of their own precarious position in a land still dominated by White racism and are deprived of a strong vanguard party to give us all guidance,
direction and leadership. Fear, ignorance and insanity reign in the land I spell Amerika!
Inside the U.S.A., Blacks and Browns once united together based upon common principles can dramatically transform not only the United States but the
whole world, especially in organized unity with other Third World peoples, progressive White-Americans and educated Europeans.

Labor Day Weekend 2006: Lists of Nationwide Immigrant Rights Marches
by Lee Siu Hin - ImmigrantSolidarity.org ( info [at] ImmigrantSolidarity.org )
there has been estimates of 100000 civs killed by US troops.
It is not the troopers that start wars it is the politican and they will be held accountable.
1 million dies during the Iraqi sanction - influence by America
300000 civs killed by US troops in gulf war 1.
4000 during Afgan war.
Most civs where kill by US bombing.
anyone who gets involved in fighting in an unjust war sponsored by an unjust government should be aware of the consequences of their actions. Heroes,
drafted dummies or volunteer mercenaries?!
No Vietnamese soldier ever massacred my village! No Iraq insurgent ever put an IED in my path. My point is that we should look at this in connected
reality, of course, we should help those who return all banged up from foreign unjust wars on a humane basis, but let us not forget the origins and
historical contexts of such wars! We need to stop making such so-called heroes!
My first animal instinct is to be glad the verdict is in and that Saddam is to be hanged as he was and is a great evildoer, then, my striving to be a
conscious humane being makes me ponder upon this a little longer before we run out and take a basket collection for a rope. It has not been a cut and
I am against the death penalty as wielded by an unjust state, but there are exceptional cases when the death penalty is appropriate when great crimes
have been committed. However, judging by the way death penalty verdicts are stalled out by appeals inside the United States I doubt if there will be a
I believe there should have been an international tribunal and neutral grounds for the Saddam Trial, which became a big media circus, not to mention
the killing of officers of the court. The whole case involves matters of global international law, especially when we consider the question of who
kept Saddam in power for so long in the first place
The National Security Archive at George Washington University has published a series of declassified U.S. documents detailing the U.S. embrace of
Saddam Hussein in the early 1980’s. The collection of documents, published on the Web, include briefing materials, diplomatic reports of two
Rumsfeld trips to Baghdad, reports on Iraqi chemical weapons use during the Reagan administration and presidential directives that ensure U.S. access
to the region's oil and military expansion…..

Then, there is also the central question of war crimes done by war criminals from the USA, including President Bush, Donald Rumsfeld and the whole
Oval Office Cabal and their cronies. Who will put them on trial? How can we condemn crimes against humanity by one evil dictator and condone the
inhumanity of another evil dictator who stole the Presidential Election in 2000?
The U.S. government obviously does not give a damn about the desires and wishes of the Iraqui people for peace and justice, so why should it start
caring now? It already allows the rape and murder of innocent Iraqi girls and massacres of Iraqi families! Remember that or does memory fail you? Who
will stop these mutant Amerikan War criminals and their bastard offspring?
John 8:7 ~ So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a
America includes all of North America, Central America and South America. The term America is not the exclusive domain of the U.S.A. come together and
totally liberate all of the Americas from domestic capitalism and foreign imperialism!
Americans, I mean U.S. citizens, need to get rid of their phony patriotism. We love our sons and should resist their involvement in unjust
Empire-building wars! Let us not forget the humane principles upon which your country was founded and let us not forget the slave masters who were the
signers of the Declaration of Independence! This whole country was founded upon the evil institution of slavery! Maybe I digress here. I assure you
that upon the Return of Jesus Christ HE will not come back the same way he left!
You are still living under a mature disguised fascism, especially when people have a comic-book notion about fascism with images of Nazi Germany and
grossly underestimate the flexibility of Amerikan Fascism.
When the world witnessed the great immigrant rights marches this year a lot of Latinos, including Mexicanos, woke up for awhile yet no real
immigration reform has happened as we will suffer more repression as times goes by and the Amerikan wall is going up! The whole USA is becoming a
fascist-inspired militarily gated community that will keep some out and keep us all inside its legal borders inside the continental United States.
At the risk of being redundant, we still need to build up a strong global vanguard liberation movement not limited by colors, tongues or borders.
I really wish more progressive activists who are online and interested in Latino News would join up with Aztlannet_News Yahoo Group, especially with
all that is going on in different regions related to various issues. We have more strong collective power when our impassioned voices are joined
Ideally, we should have our own TV Cable News Show, more videos and utilize all forms of media. Internet Power is one major way we can utilize to
overcome the dominant corporate media.
It is entirely possible to be a revolutionary and still support the
United States of America.
Aztlan is not anti-America (or, anti United States, if you will.)
Aztlan does not attempt to supplant the US of A, or replace it with another authority. Reconquista is NOT a physical transformation of the authority
of Washington, D.C., by a new authority. It is the Revoutionary spirit of the American Revolution that should never die in the hearts of all
We strive to exhaust all legal, peaceful and social means and methods of struggle, but let no one who braves each new day have any dopey
hallucinations or be under any false illusions. Who is willing to get their hands dirty? Who is prepared for war to the knife? The inevitable showdown
cannot be put off forever and at least regional civil war inside the United States is as predictable as nightfall. Stay alert, be ready and be
prepared. Being prepared we can better deal with all kinds of complicated sudden situations. More will be revealed…..
Join Up! Humane-Rights-Agenda Yahoo Group
We need to all learn better how to use Internet Power in order to combat the lies and calculated disinformation of the fascist dogs.
the U.S.A. government became a rogue nation the moment that Bush Jr. became President after his legalistic coup-d-etat over Al Gore in 2000 and
Gore's rolling over meekly.
The U.S.A. government has violated international law and its own U.S. Constitution. Puppet-Fuhrer Bush is a war criminal and all of his Oval Office
Cabal are war criminals.
I believe the docile apathetic Amerikan people are ever so slowly gradually starting to wake up to what is going down inside the United States.
Thank God we have Internet Power right now in order to help spread the truth to others, though, I strongly suspect that it will not stay in the form
it is in right now, though, there may already be rogue-government hackers.
Fascists hate the truth and will kill truth-sayers. Hell, they are even harassing young teenage girls!
I am not blaming progressives. I am blaming the reactionary dogs in the White House who have manufactured this present fascist order. The White
left-radical progressive wing does not and cannot represent the vital survival interests of Latinos. I am looking at it from the perspective of a poor
Chicano who is of the largest racial-ethnic minority in side the United States and of the majority in the real world. The Third World IS the majority
world! Will progressive Whites aggressively support our political agenda and look out for the basic survival interests of Latinos in general? Hell
Latinos are behind in every social-economic indicator under the present fascist order. Many Whites, most of whom are racists whether subconsciously or
not, do not give a **** about us and want us all to go back to Mexico. Progressive Whites should focus on healing the social sickness of White racism
among their own White people, not telling non-Whites what they should or should not support in the name of what is ‘progressive’. We don’t need
the White Amerikan mind! Us Latinos have our own minds and are quite capable of making our own independent choices without confused co-dependent help
from progressive Whites.
Each of us should work in our own natural habitat and social environment. Latinos and Blacks will bring about a revolutionary paradigm shift in the
whole American landscape once we are united on a common humane rights agenda and rid ourselves of our own remnants of racism.
After these round of elections are over a lot of the basic voter registration and community education will still have to be done by progressives, or
better, compassionate humane beings. Do not let this period further divide us. We should work together in areas that we can and know that we will not
and cannot always see eye-to-eye on everything. Latinos and Blacks are being repressed now and living in Third World like conditions inside the United
States. Now a lot of White racists are coming out of the floorboards in the name of phony patriotism that veils their racist xenophobia. Will you walk
with me door-to-door in our barrios/ghettos after dark???
Will you fire away with me if it comes down to a firefight? Progressive Whites can always put on a business suit and go back to their folks
undercover! We have always been here and will always be here. We are at home in the Americas!
have a straight up radical global overview in these reactionary xenophobic times inside the United States. We Latinos are responsible for our own
community education and our own liberation in harmony with all people’s liberation struggles worldwide. We need to build up a community-based
infrastructure; relate to the people’s basic needs; and build up working coalitions with our natural allies.
There is a progressive Sacra website that has been around for a long time related to progressive events on the local level that you may want to check
With all that has happened this year in of immigrant rights, our marches and rallies, it is time to ratchet up our collective struggles for Latino
Liberation. We are not asleep. We are wide awake and need to wake up all our gente!
~ Oue enemies are the mega-global corporations, the fascist state power structure, the fascist-minded military machine and all their fanatical
flunkeys, then, as Carlos hinted at there is the enemy within aka: agent provacateurs.
I was hoping to get more of a response and feedback about my essay itself and wish others in this group would present their personal psycho-social
ideas about the concept of Latino LIberation either through an essay, a blog post or a well thought out Email.
The main idea in my essay:
Analysis on Latino Liberation Inside the United States: was:
"... the old Chicano Movement will have to shed its old skin of reactionary nationalism and come to embrace scientific democratic socialism, along
with the peoples of Venezuela, Bolivia, Cuba and other liberated territories of Latin America in opposition to the Amerikan Empire."
We need to unite with other Latinos throughout the USA, in Mexico, Central America and South America as Latinos.
Plus, we need to come together with our natural allies who are other oppressed suffering peoples from different cultural backgrounds. We should not
let our own prejudices and any remnants of racism keep us divided.
I hope someday soon some of us connected with Aztlannet can get together as a junta in for our own Aztlannet-type conference, to exchange ideas, work
on some plans and get to know each other face to face.
I want to see a new Latino Libeation Movement built up in harmony with all other progressive liberation movements.
Life upon Mother Earth, its interlocked global economy and even Internet Power has altered the dynamics and mechanics between peoples. New situations
call for new analyses.
I first got involved in the 'movimiento' in my teens and know I am getting to be a real viejo, though, I am still in pretty good physical shape and
pretty well preserved. I am not a veerano as I know the war rages on!!!
I remember the ol' War on Poverty days when President Johnson was in the White House, the volatile Vietnam War days and how the government would
throw some crumbs to us like hungry dogs and some of fools fell for it and fought each other over 'crumbs from the banquet table', including Blacks
and Browns here in Sacramento.
In real life, on the street level, sometimes friends become enemies and enemies become friends. It ain't all cut and dry in a gift-wrapped package.
A lot of life has to do with how we handle ourselves in our relations with others. Then, there are critical class enemies whose class interests are
inherently opposed to ous own survival-based class interests.
Distinctions must be made and contradictions must be truly analyzed and resolved in of clearly-defined distinctions between antagonic and
Creating unity really has to do with getting to know our companeros in real life, how they think, how they operate under pressure, in the thick of
battle or in a crisis situation. It is one thing to type from the comfort of my command post here with a loaded Remington shotgun in the corner and
being out in the streets in a real firefight with the local neo-Gestapo.
Ideally, we get to know who are local comapneros are by coming together, by communicating together and by really working together on common plans,
programs and projects.
Since we are both in Sacramenot we ought to get together soon for some cafe and compare mental notes.
Keep in mind that we are still going through the after-shocks and dust settling from the big immigrant rights marches and rallies this year. It showed
us the great power we have and our far greater potential. We have barely tapped the top.
Nonetheless, protracted social liberation movements are mobilized, staged and manufactured by vanguad leadership, trained cadres and masses of people,
not by automatic reflexes or sudden spurts of inspiration.
Fortunately, we are not starting from scratch. In a collective sense, we have a great wealth of experience already paid for by the blood, sweat and
tears of many others in earlier times.
Sometimes once loyal partisans get burned out, bought off, filtered away or out-sourced out of the struggles before us.
It is the natural ebb and flow of liberation struggles, coming closer to our calculations at time and at other times receding further away in a
constant state of flux.
Our struggle goes on, the movement moves forward and we must be armed with clarity, courage and conviction along with an undying faith in our people
in conjunction with our vanguard elements involved in building up infrastructure.
Remember, the anatomy of a power base of operations involves three elements:
