Jimmy Carter - Mass Murderer Pravda 16.05.2012 Boni pastoris est tondere pecus, non deglubere. - Tiberius
By John Fleming
... Jimmy Carter affects a superficial appearance of amiability and since leaving the White House, besides his well-known work for Habitat for Humanity, he has espoused time and again humanitarian causes. He has been appointed a diplomatic plenipotentiary time and again, especially under Clinton, and he made a well-publicized trip to Cuba and met Fidel Castro recently, where he, without mentioning the repression under corporate monopoly capitalism, in Georgia and everywhere else in the U.S., chided Castro in a would-be gaffe for alleged undemocratic practices and "human rights violations."
Then, God only knows why, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, as if the Nobel committee in Oslo had temporarily gone out of its mind. Carter, a media darling of the half-truths, disinformation, lies and deceit of the corporate-censored American media, is regarded as a Southern gentleman, a man who once was engaged in the innocent farming of peanuts after serving in the navy, smiles often and appears to be a nice, pleasant, gentle, peaceful man of integrity.
Not so fast. As the old maxim goes, the cowl does not make the monk; appearances can be deceiving. [...] The gaze never lies. People can be fooled by first impressions, facial impression management or behavioral gestures, but the face is an open book. Carter to Dr. Bellak "appears troubled and conflicted," half of the born-again phony's face looked "staring, wary and challenging.... The strong vertical furrow above the nose...is suggestive of anger.... [The] chin suggests probable aggression. [The one half of carter's face] is anxious, troubled, depressed, and wrestling with some anger and frustration, possibly nastiness [italics added]." Dr. Bellak's examination thus hardly fits the former president's reputation for humaneness, or even for being a kind man. His record during two parts of his career-his days in power as president, January, 1977 to January, 1981-and his subsequent "humanitarian" diplomacy after leaving office will be examined to see whether he is what he pretends to be.
While president, during which he "proclaimed human rights to be 'the soul of our foreign policy,'" Carter substantially supported the genocidal murder of some 200,000 people in Timor, an island of southeastern Indonesia, about 250 miles north of Australia. West Timor, formerly a Dutch colony, is now Indonesian territory; East Timor was formerly Portuguese, The original inhabitants of Timor were Malay, Polynesian and Papuan. The island is oil-rich. Guilty of the atrocities were the Indonesians under their ruler General Suharto, whom Carter aided. The president, who by all appearances is extraordinarily naïve, vetoed United Nations resolutions to stop the Indonesian slaughter of their island neighbor. Indonesia subsequently allowed international oil companies to exploit the oil of East Timor. A commission of Australia's parliament labeled the massacres following the 1975 Indonesian invasion as "indiscriminate killing on a scale unprecedented in post-Word War ll history." Carter is thus complicit in genocide; he is, in fact, a mass murderer.
Jimmy the Naïve was also no saint when it came to other aspects of his foreign policy. He was instrumental in the murderous terrorism of the Anastasio Somoza dictatorship, which he backed, of Nicaragua while in the White House. And Carter abetted the Pol Pot regime of Cambodia and thereby is an accomplice to that government's genocidal atrocities and war crimes. Finally, the war criminal from Plains supported the brutal, torturing, murdering, death-squad.. One might note the duplicitous character of Carter in that he revealed in a 1976 Playboy interview that he considered committing adultery; this fact is fully in line with his character as analyzed by Dr. Bellak. James Earl Carter is hereby shown to be a war criminal, by any standards-not just according to the ex post facto findings at Nuremberg-and a mass murderer guilty of high crimes against humanity.
In his career as a roving diplomat and peace negotiator, Carter displayed heinous duplicity, saying one thing in his ballyhoo press relations and doing quite other things, such as aiding brutal dictators, making countries safe for corporate investment, supporting undemocratic, rightist regimes and countenancing voter fraud. In 1991, scholar James Petras, after examining Carter's "human rights campaign," found that the former president was "a hard-nosed defender of oppressive state apparatuses, a willing consort to electoral frauds, an accomplice to U.S. Embassy efforts to abort popular democratic outcomes and a one-sided mediator."
In the Dominican Republic in 1990, Carter helped President Joaquin Balaguer steal the election. In Haiti in 1990 the "impartial mediator" worked to defeat Jean-Bertrand Aristide and rejected the factual idea that Haiti's army was brutally repressive. Marx said that history constantly repeats itself, first as tragedy and then as farce. In the case of Carter and Haiti, the farce occurred when the wife of a Haitian army officer-involved in getting the aged diplomat-at-large "on board" and return to Haiti-was, as he told a journalist about the woman, singled out by him as "impressive, powerful and forceful. And attractive. She was slim and very attractive."

It’s actually a serious matter. I am laughing at how ridiculous both Obama/Carter are in ‘acting’ as if they are “humanitarians,” it is the ugliest abuse of values, twisting it around for politics.

Saving Zimbabwe is not colonialism, it’s Britain’s duty
Britain needs to escape from its colonial guilt when it comes to Zimbabwe. Mugabe is the worst kind of racist dictator. Having targeted the whites for their apparent riches, Mugabe has enacted an awful Orwellian vision, with the once oppressed taking on the role of the oppressor and glorying in their totalitarian abilities.
Genocide Victims Want Mugabe Punished - Global Policy
By Thabo Kunene
January 6, 2002
Victims and survivors of the 1980s Matabeleland genocide have renewed their call for the arrest and prosecution of President Robert Mugabe and his security and defence ministers for crimes against humanity.
The genocide victims who have been struggling to get compensation from the government, say once Mugabe leaves office or loses the March presidential election, he should be arrested and handed over to the United Nations War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague, Netherlands. They want the beleaguered Zimbabwean leader to suffer the same fate as former Yugoslav dictator, Slobodan Milosevic.
Milosevic, who ruled his country with an iron fist, was handed over to the UN war crimes tribunal last year by the new rulers in Belgrade. The Standard last week spoke to Themba Mhlanga, the secretary of a Johannesburg-based group known as Survivors and Victims of Matabeleland Genocide. Mhlanga, who is also based in Johannesburg, was in Bulawayo for the Christmas and New Year holidays.
“Our plans to file a lawsuit against Mugabe have reached an advanced stage and we have found a lot of support among human rights lawyers and individuals in South Africa,” Mhlanga said. He said his group had also been in touch with the United Nations Human Rights Commission and international human rights lawyers who have all promised to assist the Matabeleland victims.
Mhlanga who lost several relatives during the slaughter campaign in the 1980s, said Mugabe, who also held the defence portfolio during the genocide era, authorised the massacres of the Ndebele people who backed Joshua Nkomo’s defunct Zapu party. “We are not going to let Mugabe and his commanders go free after he leaves office. He has to account for what he did in Matabeleland,” added Mhlanga. He said the victims were suing the president as a group and not as individuals. Some of of the members of the group have been threatened by suspected Zimbabwean security operatives in Johannesburg. Mhlanga said his group now had 7 000 members, most of whom are based in South Africa.
Two years ago, President Mugabe promised to compensate the survivors of the genocide but up to now nothing has materialised. Bishop Pius Ncube of the Roman Catholic Church in Bulawayo later criticised the president for playing with the emotions of the people of Matabeleland. The bishop was threatened with death by suspected state agents for demanding fair treatment of his tribesmen in Matabeleland. The slaughtrer of about 20 000 minority Ndebele inhabitants of Matabeleland and Midlands provinces took place between 1983 and 1987.
Hundreds of other villagers and Zapu activists went missing during the slaughter campaign and many are presumed dead. Scores of others died of torture in detention and the culprits have never been brought to justice. The man who led the notorious army unit, the North Korean-trained Fifth Brigade, Perrence Shiri, was later promoted to Air Marshall by President Mugabe. His promotion angered the genocide victims and families of thousands who died during the brigade’s occupation of the provinces.
The late Nkomo himself, who was declared a national hero by Zanu PF, survived an assassination attempt by Mugabe’s security agents and had to flee to Britain where Zimbabweans living in London paid for his accomodation after he had been told to vacate a flat owned by the late Tiny Rowland.
