(The other)Galloway on McNamara – Reading an obit with great pleasure

Following on from my post the other day, unsympathetic to one of histories greatest murderers, Robert McNamara, I came across this article which shows me I’m not alone:

Joseph L. Galloway | McClatchy Newspapers

I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure.” —Clarence Darrow (1857–1938)

Well, the aptly named Robert Strange McNamara has finally shuffled off to join LBJ and Dick Nixon in the 7th level of Hell.

McNamara was the original bean-counter — a man who knew the cost of everything but the worth of nothing.

Back in 1990 I had a series of strange phone conversations with McNamara while doing research for my book We Were Soldiers Once And Young. McNamara prefaced every conversation with this: “I do not want to comment on the record for fear that I might distort history in the process.” Then he would proceed to talk for an hour, doing precisely that with answers that were disingenuous in the extreme — when they were not bald-faced lies.

    Because of this monster many good men and young lost their lives. For what? To stem the tide of Communism? Yeah – right. This being was the devil incarnate as was LBJ. Neither was fit to inhabit a human body but somehow manged to fool Americans in the 60’s and beyond. My prayer to McNamara and LBJ: Boil painfully and eternally in hell for the pain and death YOU caused for NO REASON !!

      They had no right to stem any supposed tide of communism either. There is a problem in that RMcN and LBJ’s fooling, happened again and again and again. Nicaragua, Panana, Iraq 1, Iraq 2, and argueably Afghanistan. Obamistans are looking the same too!

      Bush was too stupid be be able to remember this (‘cos he probably didn’t understand was meant by it) but the saying goes
      Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

      And you prably know this…

      “Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship. …voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.” – Hermann Goring

      I second you call for them to recieve punishment and I get a certain amount of comfort from the fact that their countless victims get justice. I suspect magistraygraine may support that too(?)

    My Fave Journalist, John Pilger:

    Mourn on the fourth of July, 9 Jul 2009

    In an essay for the New Statesman, John Pilger argues that while liberals now celebrate America’s return to its “moral ideals”, they are silent on a venerable taboo. This is the true role of Americanism: an ideology distinguished by its myths and the denial that it exists. President Obama is its embodiment.

    The monsoon had woven thick skeins of mist over the central highlands of Vietnam. I was a young war correspondent, bivouacked in the village of Tuylon with a unit of US marines whose orders were to win hearts and minds. “We are here not to kill,” said the sergeant, “we are here to impart the American Way of Liberty as stated in the Pacification Handbook. This is designed to win the hearts and minds of folks, as stated on page 86.”

    Page 86 was headed WHAM. The sergeant’s unit was called a combined action company, which meant, he explained, “we attack these folks on Mondays and we win their hearts and minds on Tuesdays”. He was joking, though not quite. Standing in a jeep on the edge of a paddy, he had announced through a loudhailer: “Come on out, everybody. We got rice and candy and toothbrushes to give you.”

    Silence. Not a shadow moved.

    “Now listen, either you gooks come on out from wherever you are, or we’re going to come right in there and get you!”…
