James Steele: Bringer of Death Squads and Unmarked Mass Graves in Iraq

by Scott Creighton

On the eve of the illegal invasion based on endless lies told to the American people, George W. Bush famously told the people of Iraq; “You deserve better than tyranny, corruption and torture chambers

What he gave them was tyranny, poverty, corruption (losing a reported billions in fraud and waste according to a new report), endless blackouts, needless suffering, torture chambers and roving death squads created and then headed by our own professional fascists like colonel James Steele, a veteran of American proxy wars in El Salvador and Nicaragua.

These are the same things we created elsewhere. This is the product of the Shining City on the Hill. This is trickle-down humanity mass produced on a global scale aided by cutting edge technology, a legion of robotic ton ton macoute, professional political apologists and their minions of hired out influence peddlers with their multiple personae.

Libya, Syria, Yemen, El Salvador, Indonesia, Guatemala, Nicaragua… many many others … and soon.. probably Venezuela.

There is a good video, apparently the BBC finally figured out who James Steele was and what the Salvador Option was in Iraq, so they made a little documentary on the whole thing. Mass unmarked graves, sectarian slaughter, roving death squads and torture… all supervised and ran by one James Steele. You can rent him out to give a stirring motivational speech to your local Chamber of Commerce if you like. Costs between 2,500 and 100,000 depending. That’s what you do with professional terrorists and mass murderers in a fascist system… you reward them and applaud their fine work killing people who have a different point of view.

Of course, if you had been keeping up with the conspiracy theorists, you would have known about Mr. Steele’s valuable contribution to humanity years and years ago but that is all water under the bridge now.

Greg Palast’s “The Assassination of Hugo Chavez”

by Scott Creighton

In 2002 after a CIA and Bush White House backed coup, they loaded the democratically elected Hugo Chavez on a helicopter and flew him out over the ocean while the head of the local Chamber of Commerce was sworn in as the new “president’ amid the polite but enthusiastic applause of many Venezuelan businessmen. It was all over an increase in the royalties the big oil companies were going to have to pay the people of Venezuela for taking the oil that belonged to them. Prior to the hydrocarbon law of 2001, they had only been paying back a mere 1%. That was increased to 16.5% cutting Big Oil’s share from 85% to 70. They planned to overthrow him and kill him for a mere 15%… that was the price of the demolition of democracy in 2002. The Big Oil linked “president” from the Chamber of Commerce lasted a day and during that time he disbanded the National Assembly and the Supreme Court (yes folks, there are such things in the “communist dictatorship” of Venezuela). Chavez had seen this coming though and while a march of a million Venezuelans approached and surrounded the presidential palace where the businessmen were plotting their Shah-like dictatorship (perhaps Pinochet is a better reference?), the people and a band of loyal commandos breached the security of the palace and basically told the future dictator and one-day “president” “Bring back Hugo or die. It’s that simple”. Without their buddies in the CIA or drones close at hand, the coup leaders agreed and put in a call to the helicopter with the legitimate president on it, and then they were arrested.

In 2005 Pat Robertson said the following regarding the events:

“Hugo Chavez thinks we’re trying to assassinate him. I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it.” “This is a dangerous enemy to our South controlling a huge pool of oil.” “We don’t need another $200 billion war….It’s a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with.” Holy-man Pat Robertson

The following is a documentary made about that incident by Greg Palast some time ago. It is still relevant today. An interesting part of the history of the social revolution in Venezuela that you won’t see on the MSM or their fake “alternative” sites like Prison Planet.


Chavez ‘demonization will grow in US’ even after death

(like I do, Pepe fears a CIA / State Department backed coup in Venezuela after the monied interests in the United States fail to forge a rigged election in 30 days. He speaks of how the neoliberal press (which includes Natural News and Prison Planet) will continue to demonize Chevez and the idea of social democracies)

Interview with Pepe Escobar on Russia Today

American President Barak Obama says the death of Venezuela’s iconic leader Hugo Chavez opens ‘a new chapter in the country’s history’. This means Chavez will continue to be demonized in the US, believes investigative journalist Pepe Escobar.

The charismatic leader suffered a number of health complications after returning from his latest round of treatment in Cuba.

The real cause of his death is still to be discovered says Pepe Escobar, an investigative journalist and Asia Times Correspondent covering Latin America, who doesn’t exclude the possibility of an American hand.

He fears a coup after the presidential election next month.

Venezuela’s Real Division Over Who Benefits from Oil Wealth

They talk about aspects of this that I have already written about, namely the MSM playing up the “bitterly divided” storyline following Chavez’ death. Unfortunately they fail to see it as building the pretext for the pending Syrian style “revolution” that they KNOW they will NEED in order to remake Venezuela in the neoliberal model they so desperately crave. It’s overall a good interview in spite of that minor miss.

One aspect they do bring up is the fact that Venezuela is a lynchpin in the Latin American revolution taking place and I am sure that the Milton Friedman/ Kennedy School globalists cannot allow this “opportunity” to slip by without making a play for the brass ring. With Columbia in their pockets right next door it seems perfectly set up for another Contras or Free Syrian Army exercise if it comes down to that. And once you consider the think tanks like AEI are already making waves about doing it, it may be a foregone conclusion that Venezuela will become the next Syria project.


In the Wake Chavez’ Death, the Oligarchs and Traitors of Venezuela Want to “Go Home’ To “Their County”

by Scott Creighton

The New York Times is doing what the New York Times does: catering to the fascist financial aristocracy of the U.S., Tel Aviv and London.

“A few miles away at Arepa 1, a similar group gathered outside and inside, cheering the news on television while chomping on arepas, Venezuela’s staple corn meal patties, and sipped Frescolita. They spoke of rebuilding Venezuela, maybe not now but soon.” New World Order Times

They are running with an “emotional story” about how the Venezuelan ex-pats living in Doral, Fl. are dancing around and celebrating the death of one of Venezuela’s most courageous and admired leaders, Hugo Chavez. These are the same kinds of people as the Cuban oligarchs who fled to Miami after they decided to run from a more economically just Cuba was being created. From their little seat of power in Miami, these Cuban fascists sat back and plotted and planned the destabilization of Castro’s Cuba at all costs. They ran teams of terrorists out of the college down there, targeting infrastructure and civilians alike. Anything they could do to upset the nation and keep it from thriving.

What they did was basically run away like Ayn Rand suggests in Atlas Shrugged. The problem was, the country didn’t fall apart without them. Instead, it thrived. Same thing happened in Venezuela when their entrenched oligarchs ran for Florida. Now they are dancing around hoping it will all return to the good old days when they can zip back over to a real dictatorship run by a U.S. business interest and their CIA trained deathsquads. Oh, the Good Old Days! Profits abound for the John Gaults of this world.

All it will take is a year or so of yet another Latin American destabilization campaign.

Someone call John Negroponte! You could probably find him in Doral Florida last night dancing in the streets.

Someone call Jon Stewart’s personal friend Maziar Bahari the agent provocateur of the color revolutions! He can run down there and start pretending like it’s a Raspberry Revolution or something!

Someone call the Nazi’s son… what was his name?… oh yeah… George H. W. Bush. He can float down there and set up another Zapata Oil rig and pump weapons and munitions to the New Contras!

And don’t forget to call those All American Heroes John Poindexter and Ollie North! They can set up another ARMS FOR HEROIN deal through Israel so all that DEMOCRACY can be brought to the people of Venezuela!

Come on New York Times! Get to work. Who the f*ck do you think  you work for anyway?! The oligarchs and traitors of Venezuela are ready to rush back into “their” country and loot and pillage the fruits of the labor of all those who stayed and made their country a better place. All it will take is a little bit of propaganda from you and some of the terrorists from Syria. Let’s get too it!

Latin America’sTop anti-Imperialist Leaders Fall Ill with Same Disease at Same Time?

“I don’t know but… it is very odd that we have seen Lugo affected by cancer, Dilma when she was a candidate, me, going into an election year, not long ago Lula and now Cristina… It is very hard to explain, even with the law of probabilities, what has been happening to some leaders in Latin America. It’s at the very least strange, very strange.” Hugo Chavez

How did it happen that six leaders of Latin American countries which had criticized US policies and tried to create an influential alliance in order to be independent and sovereign states, fell ill simultaneously with the same disease?” Russian Communist Party head Gennady Zyuganov told Russian state television

“Strange indeed… so strange that if you think Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, Paraguayan Fernando Lugo, and former Brazilian leader Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva – Latin America’s top anti-US empire leaders – all just happened to contract cancer around the same time by sheer chance, you must be some kind of crazy coincidence theorist.” Kevin Barrett


Putin Hails Chavez as ‘Strong’ Leader

from Ria Novosti

World leaders have been reacting to the death of Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez, the populist figurehead of Latin American socialism whose larger-than-life personality split both international and domestic opinion, with Russian President Vladimir Putin among those praising his legacy.

“He was an unorthodox and strong person, who looked to the future and always set himself the highest standards,” Putin said in a Kremlin message of condolence after Chavez’s death on Tuesday following a prolonged battle with cancer.

Putin added he was confident the Venezuelan people would be able to overcome what he called the “test” presented by Chavez’s death and continue to build a “strong, independent and prosperous” nation.

Ties between Russia and Venezuela flourished under Chavez, whose 14-year-rule brought Moscow a number of lucrative arms deals and a close ally in South America.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Chavez had devoted his life to the battle for “justice and equality.”

“We share the pain of your loss – we will always remember this wonderful person, patriot and citizen,” he said in a message of condolence to the Venezulean people.
