The Public Uncoverings About the Transports of Detainees
Dec 8, 2005
The US conducts transports of detained persons in Europe, whom she suspects of taking part in the “jihad” or other Islamic terrorism. She has, what hardly can be doubted any longer, installed camps of her own in several European countries, possibly in Poland and Romania, in which she undertakes the “special treatment” of these people. She is hijacking citizens of other states, displacing them for months and subjecting them to interrogations, in the distance of thousands of kilometres, and is not giving a damn about international law nor the laws of the states concerned.
This has been made a central concern now by US newspapers themselves,
which are most closely connected to US capitalism, like the „Washington
Post“, or by certain organisations like „Human Rights Watch“,
combined with many denounces also from European countries. It is about
the reestablishment of the “human rights”, as all of these
forces are saying.
George W. Bush’s policy with its open confrontation is leading
the US into isolation. This is quite certainly one of the reasons why
the „Washington Post“ is worried. What is the character of
the reckoning with the “jihadis” from the part of the US organs
like the CIA, which today are operating against them on a worldwide level
and have no qualms about breaking the laws of any other country? The “jihadis”
started their cooperation with the US, for example, in Afghanistan. The
Muslim Brotherhoods, one of the sources of the “jihadist”
movements, were forces which supported the most ancient reaction in the
Arab countries and were openly sponsored by British and US imperialism.
The „jihadis“ have to work for the US, they have to commit deeds which are of benefit for her and not to act against the US. Some of them, though, have acted against the US, they are following a way of their own, their religious mania. They presumed to break their word towards the cartel, from the US’ point of view, and reckoning with such people is necessary, of course, without law and legality. The great majority of these „jihadis’“cases are dealt with in the darkness of these camps. Perhaps it is even more suitable for the US’ secret services to have such camps abroad, somewhere in Eastern Europe, where the detainees can be given a rough time in complete isolation, than in front of the public and under the eyes of domestic opponents in the US. Certainly they will try to press a part of these people, who went out of their control, into their service again. Such reversals of people, for example, are to happen in isolation, if possible, in a corner of the world where they cannot be watched. These aspects are probably the best in order to understand this whole system.
These activities, which probably have assumed considerable extent, meet clear resistance even from the part of confirmed allies, these presumptions cannot be tolerated by anyone with only a minimum of independence.
This it is what „Washington Post“, „Human Rights Watch“ and others are distracting from. By the arrogation of the alleged spread of democracy from the part of the US, of the spread of the “human rights”, actually the next aggression is already being prepared. The assertion that it is about the reestablishment of the so-called “human rights” is fit for justifying the next aggression. So it is necessary to be wary and not to subordinate oneself to such a campaign.
The Bush administration has rather got stuck. If it really should still
dare to attack Syria or Iran, it will very probably run into a great debacle.
But the US must not be whitewashed and portrayed as a principled defender
of democracy, as a country just having some mistakes, which can be corrected
because of the country’s own capability for criticism - in which
case the matter would be half as bad. This is exactly the assertion of
those who fundamentally formulate the US’ hegemonial presumption.
The term „human rights“ is a term from the 18th century,
leaving it completely unclear in the first instance what it is based on.
We need concrete social and democratic rights, not the destruction of
all these fundamental rights under the cover of general so-called “human
So, if it is a question of further uncovering about the camps, about the CIA’s machinations, about the flights and procedures of the CIA and the organs connected to it in the camps, the „Washington Post“ and the other organs should continue, out with it all! But the more independent newspapers in other countries, the revolutionary organisations above all, should already now unmask the dangerous attempts to put the alliance of aggression on a broader ground, and thus bring about its downfall as early as possible. They must not under any circumstances trot behind the campaign of the US newspapers and its train.
