The Double Standards of the US Justice System

Today the news of the release of accused bomber Abdelbasset Mohmed Al-Megrahi of the PanAm flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland on December 21, 1988 on compassionate grounds by Scottish Justice Secretary Kenny MacCaskill was received by many people as being too lenient.

Now let's look at the facts and judge this case without prejudice. All the evidence was circumstantial and there was never any REAL proof that Al-Megrahi ever placed that bomb aboard that PanAm flight. This was simply a case where manufactured evidence took precedence over facts that were fabricated by the CIA.

In correspondence with an Austrian member of the PanAm investigation team, his spin on this was that all the evidence was pore fabrication and that Al-Megrahi was railroaded on orders from the U.S. government.

The Libyan government paid $2 Billion in compensation to the families of those who were killed on PanAm flight 103. If the falsely accused Abdelbasset Mohmed Al-Magrahi was innocent, then Libya paid $2 Billion for a crime that was not carried out by its citizens.

Now let us carry on to the shooting down of Iran Airbus A300 by an SM-2MR (surface-to-air missile) fired from the USS Vincennes that was in Iranian territorial waters in the Strait of Hormuz on July 3, 1988. The Iran Airbus A300 was carrying 290 passengers, 66 of whom were children. The order for the firing of the Surface to Air Missile came directly from the White House and Captain William C. Rogers, III who commanded the USS Vincennes had no other choice but to obey his Commander-in-Chief.

The U.S. government never apologized nor paid any compensation for this wanton act of mass murder, unlike Libya that paid $2 Billion in compensation. But in August 1988, George H.W. Bush said, "I'll never apologize for the United States of America. Ever. I don't care what the facts are." The Iranian Airbus A3oo incident actually proves that the U.S. government considers itself above International Law.

If as we have seen the U.S. government has run rough shod over many countries of the world, does anyone believe for a moment that it will respect the sovereignty of Venezuela or any other Latin American country if they are bent on invading and seizing power by armed force? Certainly not!

Thus, Venezuela and all those countries in Latin America that are socialist leaning will have no choice but to arm themselves and be ready for such an occasion in the very near future.

Honduras was only the beginning of the U.S. grand plan to conquer Latin America. Now with Colombia tied to the U.S., it becomes abundantly clear what their real aim is for the future of Latin America in the years ahead.

There can be no doubt that U.S. is on the road to world domination.

While the US State Department (Hillary Clinton) and the WH (Obama) criticize the Libyan government's response to the protests...they consistently ignored the anti-war protests here in the US, when hundreds of thousands protested the US invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. The invasion of Iraq reportedly has caused the deaths of over a million women, children, and elderly civilians. Both Obama and Clinton repeatedly voted again and again to fund those two wars. The MONTHLY cost of the war in Iraq is $8 BILLION, and in Afghanistan...$7 BILLION. While billions are spent monthly to continue the US wars in the Middle East...The unemployment remains between 12 and 15 million, with a 35% unemployment among Black youth.
