Who’s Next on the War Hit List?

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

                           WAR –Who’s Next:                          

  Iran, Lebanon, Korea…?

(Beware of a “False Flag” (covert operation designed to deceive and trigger coming wars.)

     

Very few Americans realize that the U.S. CIA orchestrated the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Iran, lead by Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh in 1953 and installed a brutal dictator, Mohammad Reza, known as the Shah of Iran. The Shah was finally overthrown by an Iranian revolution in 1979.

In the Korean war, U.S. Army General Curtis Lemay estimated the US “killed off”(millions) some “20% of the [North Korean] population.” Lemay said “We burned down every town in North Korea and South Korea too.” Dean Rusk, who later became a Secretary of State, said the US targeted and attempted to execute every person “that moved” in North Korea, and tried to knock over “every brick standing on top of another.”

Take Action to Stop Training for War!

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

Protect Pohakuloa!

Protect People, Plants & Animals on Land & Sea!

      The Army’s Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) has just completed an Environmental Assessment (EA) on “Managing Cultural resources.”  The document says “the general objectives of the cultural resources management program are to eliminate impacts to the military missions arising from cultural resources…” according to a front page article in the Nov. 11, 2017 Hawaii Tribune-Herald. Shouldn’t that be the other way around – eliminate impacts to cultural resources from military missions? Or do military missions trump all?

      Malu ‘Aina urges public meetings on Hawaii island for community feedback. The military PTA Public Affairs officer, Eric Hamilton, says such meetings are not required, therefore none are planned. His phone numbers are 969-1966 office, and 824-1474. For people off island dial 1-808 first. Email for Eric Hamilton usaghi.pao.comrel@us.army.mil

      Our overall demands are Stop All Live-Fire Training at PTA, Clean-Up of the military created toxic mess at PTA, including Depleted Uranium radiation contamination, and then Shut-Down PTA. Meanwhile, the military should provide access to cultural and religious sites in this sacred area “Pohakuloa—the Land of the Night of Long Prayer” and immediately stop further desecration of this sacred heavenly realm located between Mauna Loa and Mauna A Wakea. The public comment deadline for the EA is Dec. 7, 2017.

The 212-page Army environmental assessment can be found at https://www.garrison.hawaii.army.mil/NEPA/NEPA.htm

Comments can be emailed to usaghi.pao.comrel@us.army.mil or mailed to: Directorate of Public Works, U.S. Army Garrison, Hawaii Environmental Division (IMHW-PWE) 947 Wright Ave., Wheeler Army Airfield Schofield Barracks, HI 96857-5013.

Stop Navy Bombing & Sonar!

      An article in the Nov. 11, 2017 Hawaii Tribune-Herald “Public Skeptical about Navy training plans” A-3 reported on the only public meeting held Nov. 9th on the Big island about the Navy’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) about Navy bombing and sonar plans in an around Hawaii and the west coast U.S. The public testimony went on for several hours with each testifier limited to 3 min. Every testimony was AGAINST Navy plans. No one spoke in support. No one believed the military claims of being “responsible stewards.” The Navy’s record speaks for itself –Pearl Harbor pollution and destruction of fish ponds, nuclear waste dumped in Hawaiian waters, massive fuel storage leaks, the bombing of Kaho’olawe, which is still a military mess after $400 million has been spent on clean up there. Former Navy bombing sites on Hawaii island are still in need of unexploded ordnance and other military toxin clean up.

      Malu ‘Aina encourages you to send in testimony urging the “No Action” Navy alternative. Enough already. Send in your testimony by Dec. 12, 2017 to https://hstteis.com/Public-Involvement/Public-Comment. The full Navy EIS can be downloaded at https://hstteis.com/Documents/2017-Hawaii-Southern-California-Training-and-Testing-Draft-EIS-OEIS/Draft-EIS-OEIS

Stop Bombing Hawaii!

Protect Pohakuloa By Ruth Aloua

I’m rising to my commitment

To speaking my truth
I’m not the type to cower
I’ll rise to my power
I’ll be transparent

My position is peace
It’s what my heart speaks

Even though I don’t hear the bombs drop
My heart still stops
At the sound of that terror
This must be an error

Peace is what they preach
But not what they teach
They swear to protect us
Yet still suppress us

People and power
Have become their
Moving targets

If you’ve heard that sound and
Felt that shake

You’ll know what it means
To have your heart drop

With the click of one tock
Those numbing emotions

Bodiless movements
That capture you in one moment

Your unwanted presence
Is not a secret
The tactics
You use to
Displace us
Erase us
Break us

Can’t conquer the
Love that
Flows through our
Veins
That unifies our people
That gives us the ability
To see clearly
Through this harsh reality
That’s painted with
False illusions that

Violence is needed in the pursuit of justice
Pain is necessary to knowing love
War is a part of our humanity

We deserve better
And so do our lands
Including our hearts
Its my demand

You don’t have to agree
It’s my truth, you see
