We were reminded of yet another murderous act of the US Military when we came across a retrospective of the United States' missiling of civilian Iran Air Flight 655 on July 3, 1988. Murder is the US government's stock in trade so the story came as no surprise.
The murderers of the USS Vincennes launched a surface to air missile in Iranian waters over Iranian airspace to shoot down the Airbus A300 B2-203 carrying 290 passengers of which included 66 were children. The coward and murderer Captain William C Rogers III gave the orders to attack the unarmed airliner.
The hysterically retarded explanation offered by the Reagan administration was that the US Navy mistook the Airbus for a F-14 Tomcat fighter. The liars of the administration also declared that the sailors were in a mental state of "scenario fulfillment" in which they confused war exercises with reality.
Reagan, who was the author of operation Garden Plot while governor of California, a false flag event to murder Vietnam War protestors, stated that the attack was in self defense.
The US government rushed to produce a report which it delivered less than 4 weeks after the event on July 28 to whitewash the affair. It stated that a combination of faulty electronic signals gave the commanding officer poor information on which to base the decision to shoot down the civilian airliner.
International investigations came to significantly differently conclusions, holding the US responsible for criminal behavior. In 1991, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral William Crowe, finally admitted that the USS Vincennes was in Iranian territorial waters contrary to vehement denials from the criminal Reagan administration in 1988.
In a classic admission of guilt, Vice President and murderer George Bush declared, “I’ll never apologize for the United States of America. Ever, I don’t care what the facts are.” The crew was awarded combat mission ribbons, and Rogers and LT Commander Lustig were awarded the Legion of Merit for murdering civilians.
To recap, a navy which spends billions of dollars on training and on allegedly the most advanced weaponry and surveillance equipment in the world was unable to distinguish an F-14 Tomcat from a bulky Airbus jetliner 3 times its size because its crew was in a haze of "scenario fulfillment" and then honors the murderers with military decorations, including the coveted Legion of Merit.
We rest our case that the US military is commanded by cowards and psychopaths who call the murdering of civilians courage. The US military is a shameful and cowardly cabal of little boys. This is what the Village People called macho men. It is what we call murderous, cowardly men. "I'm a big man because I shot down 290 unarmed civilians - give me my medal!"
