The Great Betrayal Begins

The Great Betrayal Begins

“WASHINGTON -- Americans would have to sign up for a new military draft after turning 18 if the incoming chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee has his way.Rep. Charles Rangel , D-N.Y., said Sunday he sees his idea as a way to deter politicians from launching wars and to bolster U.S. troop levels insufficient to cover potential future action in Iran, North Korea and Iraq…Rangel, the next chairman of the House tax-writing committee, said he worried the military was being strained by its overseas commitments. ‘If we're going to challenge Iran and challenge North Korea and then, as some people have asked, to send more troops to Iraq, we can't do that without a draft,’ Rangel said. He said having a draft would not necessarily mean everyone called to duty would have to serve. Instead, ‘young people (would) commit themselves to a couple of years in service to this great republic, whether it's our seaports, our airports, in schools, in hospitals,’ with a promise of educational benefits at the end of service.” /

The dust has barely settled following the mid term elections and the Democrats who rode to victory on the anti-war, anti-corruption sentiments, and massive intolerance of the Bu$h administration’s warmongering have sold us out already! Not two weeks after the Democrats who for six years spinelessly went along with all of Bu$h’s plans for perpetual war took control of both houses of Congress, they showed their true colors. Last week they rejected John Murtha as their majority leader. Murtha is a man who sees the wreckage Bu$h’s imperialist policies have caused the US military, but the Democratic caucus chose instead a man who has never voted against US military action during his tenure in the Congress. A Washington Post article dated November 19, 2006 reveals Charles Rangel a House Negro who introduced a bill: H. R. 4752 which calls for mandatory service either in the active or reserve military or community service, “to provide for the common defense by requiring all persons in the United States, including women, between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform a period of military service or a period of civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, and for other purposes.”; plans to push for action on his bill in early 2007.
The Democrats have betrayed their core constituents and the people who held their noses to prevent themselves from gagging while they voted for them because thought the Democrats would “take the country in a new direction”. For most, anything even the morally challenged Democrats were preferable to the Bu$h agenda of perpetual war and unilateral imperialism. It appears we have been duped and betrayed again as the Democrats rushed to make nice with Bu$h and are falling over themselves for the privilege of continuing his failed policies of unilateral war and fiscal insanity. The Democrats knew all along they were going to reinstate the draft. That’s what John Kerry was talking about when he made is “joke” about failing in school and ending up in Iraq just prior to the election. The reason the Republicans and his Democratic colleagues pounced on him was because they thought he had inadvertently spilled the beans on their plot to spill more blood by reinstating a military draft! Both sides quickly scrambled to use the corporate media mind control apparatus to obfuscate Kerry’s real meaning and prevent folks from discerning their plans. Obviously now the Democrats feel it is safe to initiate their plans once a new Congress is sworn in.
Leave it to a House Negro like Charles Rangel; the man who was used to unseat the legendary Adam Clayton Powell, to allow himself to be pimped time and again by the ruling oligarchy. Rangel in his exuberance to be used by global white supremacy was the only sponsor to introduce legislation to resurrect a military draft. He had the gall to introduce H.R. 4752 under the pretext of preventing the US military from being over-extended in wars around the world.!? The Washington Post article chronicled Rangel’s tenacity, “Rangel, a veteran of the Korean War who has unsuccessfully sponsored legislation on conscription in the past, said he will propose a measure early next year. In 2003, he proposed a measure covering people age 18 to 26. This year, he offered a plan to mandate military service for men and women between age 18 and 42; it went nowhere in the Republican-led Congress. Democrats will control the House and Senate come January because of their victories in the Nov. 7 election. At a time when some lawmakers are urging the military to send more troops to Iraq, ‘I don't see how anyone can support the war and not support the draft,’ said Rangel, who also proposed a draft in January 2003, before the U.S. invasion of Iraq.” It is clear by his efforts to reinstate the draft, Rangel supports imperialist wars, wanton death and destruction. What happened to following the will of the people who clearly don’t approve of the occupation of Iraq?! Who exactly are Rangel and Co. listening to? Whose orders and agenda are they following? Rangel, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the pawns, crooks and warmongers in Congress don't t even pretend they were listening to all the people who voted for them to stop the carnage and bring the troops home. They immediately ran to embrace Bu$h and pledge fidelity to his disastrous occupation and bloodletting in Iraq and other places around the world. There is an obvious disconnect between career politicians and the people. They are not taking their orders from the AmeriKKKan people who desperately want the government to extricate the troops from this no win situation. What is it about the quaint notion of peace Rangel and Pelosi don’t seem to grasp or understand? Why do they think they have to go along with the insane NeoCon notion AmeriKKKa should have free reign to go around the world imposing its’ brand of “democracy” and “regime change” at the point of a gun, through missiles or smart bombs?
What kind of logic is this? Insanity is doing the same thing over and over with the same people expecting things to turn out differently. The way to solve the military’s problem is to bring the troops home, vacate Iraq and Afghanistan, rebuild their nation and allow them to live their lives unencumbered and free of AmeriKKKan intervention. But no, the Democrats want to try their hands at imperialist empire. I suspect their strings are being pulled by the Zionist lobby and the military industrial complex that paid for their campaigns. That’s why the Democrats had to get rid of Cynthia McKinney because they knew she would never sit back and go for anything like that. Unlike McKinney who was the people’s champion, Charlie Rangel is a handkerchief head Negro operating for the benefit of global white supremacy and his own pocket. He and the rest of the Democratic warmongers have betrayed the peace movement and the people who voted for them.
Often the ruling elites float trial balloons merely to test the reaction of the masses so they can gauge public sentiment and subsequently plot their nefarious agenda. Peace loving folks should picket Rangel’s office; swamp him with letters, E-mails and faxes showing him just how displeased we are with him. We should let Rangel, Pelosi and the rest of the warmongers know their days are numbered.
