According to writer John Kaminski, all Americans are now war criminals. Read his sobering and powerful essay at http://www.worldnewsstand.net/03/John_Kaminski/18.htm . I agree. One of the most powerful weapons used by the Americans to get away with their horrific war crimes is silence across the board. Virtually all US commercial media is silent on the war crimes perpetrated by the American military in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Balkans. Because of Canada's proximity to the US, Canada's media too remains totally silent to the atrocities perpetrated by the Americans and their Israeli allies in the Middle East. This is especially evident with Canadian politicians who too are devoid of moral consciences. God forbid should any Canadian politician stand up and express loudly the fact that Americans are war criminals. His political career would be finished in short order. We are cowards. We live comfortable lives. The last thing we need to do is rock the boat. In the end we will pay a heavy price for our silence. Sooner or later the US economy will collapse into total bankruptcy. We will suffer mightly for being so closely allied to the USA.
The Americans came to realise that they would have to either leave the region or weaken their presence there. It is Russia that is filling the vacuum now
