Fred Branfman at Antiwar.com writes in Mass Assassinations Lie at the Heart of America's Military Strategy in the Muslim World Those responsible for it, primarily General Petraeus, are recklessly seeking short-term tactical advantage while making an enormous long-term strategic error that could lead to countless American deaths in the years and decades to come. General Petraeus must be replaced, and the U.S. military's policy of direct and mass assassination of Muslims ended. I agree. But let's also try him for war crimes so there's no chance he'll run for president in 2012 and bring mass killings to American soil. A "Waco" a day. Watching CSPAN's coverage of Glen Beck's Honor-a-thon (honor meaning kill as many Muslims and Mexicans as you can and be proud of it) at the Lincoln Memorial, I can only think Petraeus is the kind of fascist some of these people would like to be president of the "world's greatest military power." Wikipedia says he denies such ambitions as of March 2010. Just in case? President Obama put him in charge of Afghanistan in June 2010, making it difficult for him to desert his troops to run for President. But it means more practice in mass assassination in case the 58 year old decides to run in 2016.
The larger lesson of transcendence of the false icons of God and State is expressed in my 1977 song "Flowers and Stones" which contrasts 3rd chakra power and control issues to higher chakra creativity, love and higher consciousness.
