The Pentagon's Neurosis - Fallujah Gulag.
The U.S. Military, the newspapers tell us, has conquered Fallujah. But here
you must read the news carefully. It seems that the U.S. military is in
control of (most of) the area of Fallujah, and of (what is left of) its
buildings, but not of its people. The people, some 300,000 of them, are
outside the city, waiting to go home.
So the U.S. Military is facing a dilemma. The point of the Fallujah
operation was to make it possible to hold elections in January. To carry
out elections in Fallujah, the U.S. Military will have let Fallujah's
residents return home. But what if, after they return home, they start
fighting against the U.S. occupation, as they did before?
According to a December 5 article by Ann Barnard in the Boston Globe, the
U.S. military has devised a plan to solve this dilemma. They are going to
"funnel Fallujans to so-called citizen processing centers on the outskirts
of the city to compile a database of their identities through DNA testing
and retina scans." Then they will give each person a nametag, which they
will be required to wear at all times. Presumably people not wearing
nametags will be in danger of being seen as guerrilla fighters, and shot.
The Military also wants to organize all Fallujan men into "military-style
battalions", and force them to work, cleaning up and rebuilding the
It seems the U.S. military is still under the illusion that in Fallujah
there are two types of people, "terrorists" and "ordinary residents". So if
you can distinguish which is which, and allow only the "ordinary
residents", clearly marked, back into the city, peace will be achieved. But
when the "ordinary residents" return to the city, some of them will surely
resume guerrilla operations especially after they see what has been done
to their homes.
To prevent this, they will be organized into work battalions, probably
under U.S. or Iraqi military commanders.
So this is the point to which these American Bringers-Of-Democracy have
been driven to? Where can we find a parallel for the kind of social
organization they are planning? In German history, the concentration camp.
In U.S. history, the relocation centers of World War II. In Russian
history, the gulag.

- Revelations: In those days no man shall buy or trade without the mark of
The Beast in his hand and forehead.
- Cheeseburger: The American Government continues to get better at finding
more and more ways to make Adolph Hitler look like just a soda jerk in a
drug store scooping ice cream into your glass. Disagree? Give them time,
they'll catch up to Adolph's statistics some day. It's merely the natural
flow of calculus. All things come to those who sit on their ass and wait.
