Chelsea Manning & the War Crimes of Empire

On this edition of The Geopolitical Report, we take a look at the real story behind the commutation of Chelsea Manning—a trove of data revealing war crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq perpetuated by the United States and its proxies. The Iraq War Logs and the Afghan War Diary stand as horrific testament to war crimes sponsored by the Bush and Obama administrations. Will Donald Trump put an end to the US interventionist policy in the Middle East or has he taken the baton?

    Hello Kurt,

    Yet another brilliant report. Thank you and keep up the good work.

    The very sad part is, soon enough, the USA will not have to do any killing directly, not even in America. They will “outsource” the killing to all the organizations they have created in the last 30 years or so. Muslim Brotherhood, Blackwater, Taliban, etc will do all the killing of anyone who opposes the USA (it is not really the USA people, as more than 95% of USA people are innocent of all these killings. It is a very small faction that have hijacked the USA Government since World War II)

    We have choice people.. We either join Muslim Brotherhood, BlackWater, Taliban, etc and be part of the killing machine, or we prepare to die (horribly…)….. Hummmm???

      It may be unnecessary to note that horribly, or not, we’re well advised to prepare for that inevitability in any case.

      So, maybe just better to relish the eventual bloody resisting of that machine gladly as our only real option to submission.

      F’m. Nobody here gets out alive, eh?

      And you couldn’t be more right about good Mr. Nimmo here. Flat out first rate reportage always..

      Arabi: Or we create an interface with this global surveillance system they have created and turn it against them. All we need is a public access interface.

    I didn’t know where to post this… but I quote “when they shot at us we shot at everybody”.

    I highly encourage you to watch this video. It is the most enlightening thing I have seen on the Iraq war.
    That dude who says the above quote should be especially paid attention to. He makes that statement at the 44:08 mark of “WARCRIMES – US soldiers speak – I killed innocent civilians (full documentary)” on y toob.

    But I want to iterate here. THE REAL REASON THEY ALLOW AND ENCOURAGE THESE SOLDIERS TO DO WHAT THEY DO, THE REAL REASON THEY ALLOW ALL THE RAPES AND MURDERS AND SUCH, IS TO MANUFACTURE TERROR AND INSTABILITY!!! THE EXCUSES THEY GIVE THESE SOLDIERS TO DO WHAT THEY DO IS JUST THE COMPARTMENTALIZED SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE (before these soliders woke up to what they did) EXCUSE TO DO WHAT IS NECESSARY TO CREATE THIS HATE PIT THAT THE MIDDLE EAST HAS TURNED INTO. THE PEOPLE AT THE TOP KNOW THE EFFECTS, AND THEY SEEK THE EFFECTS. When you see the stories these soldiers tell, or this purposefully created division between them and those they occupy, and you combine it with what is known about how the deep state opperates, it becomes obvious. Producing terror, tribalism, and using these divisions to weaken the various peoples, on all sides… it is all just an excercise in dominance by the deep state. They have no need for more refined tools of control, because all they want are the resources and instability which weakens those they wish to steal from.

    Is the whole “chelsea” thing real or is it some hoax perpetrated to discredit Manning? Also, that vid, “WARCRIMES – US soldiers speak – I killed innocent civilians (full documentary)” on y toob, shows WHY so manny innocents are counted as combatants. The first part of it deals with “drop weapons” which are ak’s that they confiscate, then plant on a civilian whenever they accidently, or otherwise wrongly, kill an innocent.

    “WARCRIMES – US soldiers speak – I killed innocent civilians (full documentary)” is very important. DOWNLOAD IT SO THAT IT CANNOT BE DELETED FROM THE NET. SAVE IT TO A BLU RAY OR OTHER UNDELETABLE STORAGE SYSTEM.

    Oh, and thank you Nimmo for not glorifying Trump and poiting out his hatred for freedom. I get sick of these political turds being paraded about like they’re gonna bring us change. Trump is just the white “conservative” version of Obama. He will probably be even toward more violent toward whistle blowers and therefore even more favorable toward the criminal trash that runs this country. That whole thing between him and the CIA is just political theater psyops, effectively just the CIA using reverse psychology to cheer on their favored candidate.
