Boyle – New Pentagon War manual reduces us to ‘level of NAZIS’

By Sherwood Ross 
The Pentagon’s new Law of War Manual(LOWM) sanctioning nuclear attacks and the killing of civilians, “reads like it was written by Hitler’s Ministry of War,” says international law authority Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois at Champaign.
“Historically, this is a terrible development,” he added in an exclusive interview with this reporter. “We are reducing ourselves to the level of the Nazis.”
The grim, 1,165-page-long document, issued in June by the Defense Department’s Office of the General Counsel, also sanctions the use of napalm, herbicides, depleted uranium, and drone missile strikes, among other barbarities.
Boyle points out the new manual is designed to supplant the 1956 U.S. Army Field Manual 27-10 written by Richard Baxter, the world’s leading authority on the Laws of War. Baxter was the Manley O. Hudson Professor of Law at Harvard Law School and a Judge on the International Court of Justice. Boyle was his top student.
Boyle is the leading professor, practitioner and advocate of international law in America. He drafted the U.S. implementing legislation for the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention known as  the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989.
“Over the years, 27-10 has proven to be a total embarrassment to the Pentagon because it sets forth a fair and accurate statement of the Laws of War both as of 1956 and as of today,” Boyle says. He termed the new manual a “warmongering” document.
The new document seeks to distinguish between “legitimate” and “illegitimate” acts of military violence against civilian targets, using the criterion of military necessity,” points out Peter Martin of the World Socialist Website. “Thus, acts of mass slaughter of civilians could be justified if sufficient military advantages were gained by the operations.”
The bulk of the document, Martin continues, “amounts to a green light for military atrocities, including mass killings.”
Martin said the most comprehensive previous such document, the 1956 Pentagon field manual, did not state that civilians, unlike military personnel, should be spared “unnecessary suffering” because it assumed… “that any deliberate targeting of civilians was illegal and a war crime.”
Among the flagrant violations of international law sanctioned by the Pentagon’s new LOWM, Martin writes, are:
# Legitimizing the use of nuclear weapons. LOWM states, “There is no general prohibition in treaty or customary international law on the use of nuclear weapons.” This flies in the face of a number of existing international covenants. Under the UN Charter as interpreted by the World Court in its Advisory Opinion on the Legality of the Threat or Use of Nuclear Weapons, even threatening to use nuclear weapons, as the U.S. and Israel have  threatened Iran, is illegal and thus a war crime.
# Authorizing the use of banned incendiary weapons such as napalm, herbicides (as Agent Orange in Viet Nam), depleted uranium munitions (as used in Iraq). Napalm, for example, is banned under Protocol III of the 1980 UN Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons.
# Authorizing the use of cluster munitions, mines and booby-traps, the LOWM rationalizes that “the United States is not a Party to the Convention on Cluster Munitions.” (That’s a disgrace, of course, when the overwhelming majority of nations have signed it.)
# Defends drone missile attacks, both by the Pentagon and intelligence outfits such as the Central Intelligence Agency, declaring flatly: “There is no prohibition in the law of war on the use of remotely piloted aircraft…” To the contrary, targeted killing off the battlefield is prohibited.
# Authorizes the use of exploding hollow-point bullets, stating the U.S. is not a party to the 1868 St. Petersburg declaration banning their use. (At this writing, the U.S. is only 147 years late.)
In sum, the move by the Pentagon to supplant  the 1956 manual with the LOWM represents an effort to justify the excesses of its trillion dollar-a-year war machine, one that is as large as the next dozen nations combined.
The Pentagon today operates some 900 military bases globally, allegedly for “defense,” and engages in warfare in a dozen countries. The new Pentagon manual illuminates in bold print the downward drift of the U.S. from a democratic to a totalitarian society.
LOWM has received no play in a media “following orders to conceal from the American people…the Pentagon’s preparations for new and more massive war crimes, along with the destruction of democratic rights spelled out in the U.S. Constitution,” Martin says.
Indeed, it seems TV “news” stations beam more commercials than news stories, and news reports of carnage inflicted by the Pentagon are virtually non-existent. War? What war?

    Good old Hitler gets it again. Britain bombed German cities before Hitler bombed ours, in fact we did it deliberately to goad him into doing it. Hitler even appealed to the allies to keep the fighting confined to armed forces. Several sources.

      My thoughts exactly Ian. They should instead compare what’s happening to the cold blooded killers of the mainly Jewish Bolsheviks.
      The so-called ‘naaartsis’ were pussies compared to these Bolshevik fiends, responsible for the deaths of at least 66 million, mainly Christian GENUINE Russians, as opposed to Wall Street funded and imported, counterfeit atheistic Jews intent on stealing an entire country from its rightful owners and mass murdering the Christians and Intelligentsia.

      APOCALYPSE AT DRESDEN – 13 FEBRUARY 1945

      The Talmudic Jew David Shea Miller: “We children of the victors might be permitted something akin to joy at the thought of Dresdeners and Germans as a whole getting the bombing they so willingly bestowed on others (WHEN? WHERE?), hence so richly deserved themselves . . . I do not predicate my satisfaction with the bombing of Dresden on a theory of collective guilt, but on the certitude of the *actual* guilt of a near-totality of the German people — women, grandparents, non-combatants — in a project of genocide at the time of the bombing: a well earned death sentence indeed.”

    Basically it’s just legalizing the things America currently does illegally. I’d have to go back to studying official history again before much of the historical references to Nazis etc matched in with what is written here. I’m afraid I’ve educated myself and now know most of it is bollocks.

    Ok.I get blocked – so I enter all the required details & I get the “captcha” thing right 3 times in a row.I know I got it right because I’ve dealt with it before on other sites.
    Finally.on the 4th try captcha decides I got it right.
    Henry.if there’s some fault with the captcha & the entry of the letters/numbers not coinciding correctly,you’ll lose posters & possibly readers.And it’s the posters who add more information,links & detail to the articles.

    “The Pentagon’s new Law of War Manual(LOWM) sanctioning nuclear attacks and the killing of civilians, “reads like it was written by Hitler’s Ministry of War,” says international law authority Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois at Champaign“

    Hitler NEVER sanctioned nuclear attacks (Jewish freemason US president Truman did) and the killing of civilians (Genocide on the German people – Allied war crimes in WW II never mentioned)

    “We are reducing ourselves to the level of the Nazis.”

    Actually, “the Nazis“* NEVER reached that bottom low level of dehumanized depravity (as Zionist Black Propaganda keeps telling us)
    *who were they? All the Germans who were fighting for their life and very survival?

    “The grim, 1,165-page-long document, issued in June by the Defense Department’s Office of the General Counsel, also sanctions the use of napalm, herbicides, depleted uranium, and drone missile strikes, among other barbarities.“

    Hitler – the Nazis NEVER sanctioned nor could have used napalm, depleted uranium, drone missile strikes etc. These are atrocities the US-Zionist controlled Pentagon has to take full responsibility for (“the Nazis“ as scapegoats are useful anyways to divert attention)

    The Zionist controlled US military command is willing to break all existing laws if it serves their interests (they’ve always done so) “ Law at Harvard Law School“ “Judge on the International Court of Justice“ (in Le Hague? The US does not even acknowledge?)

    “Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989“
    and who are the “terrorists“ these weapons are supposed to be used against? Non-violent people who oppose wars and war crimes (the use of biological weapons etc on civilians)?

    “The new document seeks to distinguish between “legitimate” and “illegitimate” acts of military violence against civilian targets, using the criterion of military necessity,” points out Peter Martin of the World Socialist Website. “Thus, acts of mass slaughter of civilians could be justified if sufficient military advantages were gained by the operations.” “…amounts to a green light for military atrocities, including mass killings.”

    They want to abolish the notion “that any deliberate targeting of civilians is illegal and a war crime.” They want to legitimize lethal violence against civilian targets; they want to legitimize civilian targets in the first place; they want to legalize their WAR CRIMES!

    # 1 – 5 Flagrant violations of international law sanctioned by the Pentagon’s new LOWM

    “following orders to conceal from the American people…the Pentagon’s preparations for new and more massive war crimes, along with the destruction of democratic rights spelled out in the U.S. Constitution,”

    “…news reports of carnage inflicted by the Pentagon are virtually non-existent. War? What war?“

    Evil liars and hypocrites always pointing their fingers to Hitler and the “Naaazis“
    The carnage they have inflicted on innocent people is without any comparison.(but they are only “Goy“ victims; they don’t count for them)

    Don’t you EVER forget: It was Hitler and the Nazis who committed the worst crime in history!! Right?

    • NIke says:

      The questions we must be interested in refer to the alleged “six million Jews“ who allegedly were “gassed” in “gas chambers” in Nazi “extermination camps”.

      I’d like to ask the Zionist Satanists why lots of evidence to the contrary is being ignored? Why are the German people (not only the WW II generation) being slandered and vilified? Why are researchers of the alleged holocaust being persecuted and even incarcerated? Why are Zionists afraid of learning the truth? Why take Zionist Jews a leading role in genociding the white European race? What about Zionist Jewish racism and antisemitism (against semitic Arabs, ag. the Palestinians)?

    The Japanese were far nastier than the Nazis yet they get less of a bad press for it as they are not part of the zionist deception.

    Worst of all baddies “Hitler” has become a propaganda semiotic, the media whores and political puppets care not for the reality. Their house of cards is standing on an filthy ocean of lies tick tock.

    Reg Lecture Veteran investigative journalist Duncan Campbell detailed his long time entanglements with GCHQ and the Echelon project in a long-form article in The Intercept yesterday – but a select group of Register readers heard the full story from the man himself, last year.

    Duncan used his Register Christmas Lecture to give a deep dive on how his involvement with the UK’s secret state began even before he was born, when his mathematician mother worked at a secret government facility during WWII with “a gangly fellow with a stutter who loved long-distance running and mushrooms”. Yes, of course it was Turing.

    In the 1970s, Duncan became the first journalist to reveal the extent of GCHQ’s eavesdropping activities – and ended up charged with espionage under the Official Secrets Act.

    Since then, he has continued to uncover the mysteries and secrets of the UK and US intelligence services, including the existence of Echelon, the first automated mass surveillance system.

    You can gain a unique insight into what makes him, and the surveillance state, tick by watching our just released video of last December’s talk. (Yes, it’s a bit shadowy, but perhaps that’s appropriate given the subject matter)

    Let’s face it though, after 40 years of revelations from Duncan the biggest mystery might be that people are still so surprised by how wide-spread state sponsored eavesdropping is. ®

    Imho, this is all UNLAWFUL.
    “Apparently”, USA is a “British” Colony. There was some “duplicitous footwork” at the time of the Declaration of Independence which “apparently” resulted in…….non-kosher paperwork !

    http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/…/united_states_british_colony_inde

    I believe, colonies are “administered” under the Laws of the “Smother land” !
    British Law is Molmutine/Commom Law written around 400 BC.
    http://www.self-realisation.com/video/the-fraud-of-english-history-and-the-rise-of-uct/

    This should mean that as an “administration/colony” of the UK, USA Law should also be MOLMUTINE/Common Law.

    The “Cestui Que Vie” Act of 1666 is an UNLAWFUL OVERLAY of Molmutine law, “instituted” to STEAL EVERYTHING of VALUE in UK/USA/CANADA/AUSTRALIA.
    It is thought to have been “instituted” by “his heinous in Rome” and, the khazar zionists.
    As, neither “his heinous in Rome” or, the khazar zionists had/have, a LAWFUL RIGHT of ABODE in the British Isles, it therefore follows that neither group had/has any RIGHT to formulate Laws or, oppress Indigenous Sovereigns!
    Additionally, the jews were EVICTED FOREVER from the UK under ‘The Edict of Expulsion’ 1290. This Edict has never been revoked and, cannot LAWFULLY be revoked. This means all khazar zionist intervention, Political, Financial etc in the British Isles is Unlawful. It would also mean khazar zionist INTERFERENCE in British Life and the life of UK Colonies over the past 725 years has been unlawful ! The Lawful status of khazar zionists in the UK at the present time and, since1290 has been ILLEGAL ALIEN.

    http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3302296,00.html

    If, the USA is an “administration” of the UK and “governed” by Motherland Laws, it should mean that all khazar zionist i.e.ILLEGAL ALIEN, “pronouncements/ directives/legalese/interference” should hold no sway, which should also be the case, in the UK !
    The RIGHTs enshrined in the MOLMUTINE Laws of 400 BC, in respect of Indigenous British Sovereigns are UNALIENABLE.

    Just TERRIBLE. That’s war on the people. We are all under attack (on all fronts).

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=101&v=2okXtJdJ_so

    You can see the same in Germany; sometimes five planes at the same time.

    Regarding the attackers — who are the ones in control of the US Pentagon and US-NATO military? Who want to exterminate the “gentiles“/”goyim” (cattle)?

    Accuse others of what you do to them.
    That’s a perfect description of Jewish-Talmudic ideology in action. It reminds me of the saying, “The Jew cries out in pain while he is striking you.”

    EUSTACE MULLINS, THE SECRET HOLOCAUST

    http://www.rense.com/general86/realholo.htm

     “We must turn Russia into a desert populated by white negroes upon whom we shall impose a tyranny such as the most terrible Eastern despots never dreamt of. The only difference is that this will be a left-wing tyranny, not a right-wing tyranny. It will be a red tyranny and not a white one. We mean the word ‘red’ literally, because we shall shed such floods of blood as will make all the human losses suffered in the capitalist wars pale by comparison. The biggest bankers across the ocean will work in the closest possible contact with us. If we win the revolution, we shall establish the power of Zionism upon the wreckage of the revolution’s funeral, and we shall become a power before which the whole world will sink to its knees. We shall show what real power is. By means of terror and bloodbaths, we shall reduce the Russian intelligentsia to a state of complete stupefaction and idiocy and to an animal existence.” – Trotsky (Bronstein) quote (1917) from the ‘Memoirs of Aron Simanovich’, quoted in The Nature of Zionism by Vladimir Stepin, Moscow, 1993, and translated from Russian into English by Clive Lindhurst
    There are many extreme propaganda lies made about the German people. We are just the opposite of all the lies. The Communist Manifesto goes like this:”Accuse others of what you do to them.” The Germans and the Russians have been the victims and the Zionist Jews are the victimizers.
    Due to the incessant ferocious Zionist propaganda most people grew up believing Germans were evil and did not doubt anything about the so called holocaust – the alleged 6 million jews who allegedly were gassed in gas chambers, the dead corpses burnt in ovens.
    For most of my life I believed in the narrative that the “obviousness“ of the holocaust had been proven by indisputable evidence; but that’s all lies. I did my own research on the issue.The result ? I know that the official narrative about the holocaust is a myriad of lies and that the holohoax is a business by way of planting false guilt and by extortion.There were no 6 million but approx. 273.000 and this includes jews, homos, gypsies, socialists, etc. There were no gas chambers for deliberately killing jews. The fake one in Auschwitz along with other building alterations was built AFTER WWII by Poles and Russians. Horrific lies from the Zionists, who needed the support of world jewry, in order to succeed with their project of stealing Palestine from the Palestinians.
