Here is a very graphic illustration from modern history. And it is exactly why the NDAA and other draconian legislation present such an eminent danger to our nation today. In the grand scheme of things, whom would notice the deaths and disappearances of several thousand people or more. Deaths and disappearances that were refuted by our government and ignored by our media?
Here is how former Argentine dictator Jorge Videla rose to power. He is currently serving a life sentence for crimes against humanity. He and his military advisers had decided on “the disappearance of the bodies to avoid provoking protests inside and outside the country,” according to the book called “Final Disposition,” by Caferino Reato.
Excerpts from that article:
AFP – Former Argentine dictator Jorge Videla admitted for the first time in a new book that “7,000 or 8,000 people” disappeared under his regime between 1976 and 1981…
“Let’s say there were 7,000 or 8,000 people who had to die to win the war against subversion,” the book quotes Videla as saying…
Sentenced to life in prison for crimes against humanity, the former dictator, 86, also admitted he decided on “the disappearance of the bodies to avoid provoking protests inside and outside the country,” according to the book by Reato, who is a journalist and political scientist.
“Each disappearance must certainly be understood as a way to hide, to conceal a death,” Videla is quoted as saying in excerpts published on the website of publisher Random House Mondadori.
Videla was the first president of the last Argentine dictatorship, which ran from 1976 to 1983.
He said insurgents compelled him to take action that ended in their disappearances and deaths.
“There was no other alternative,” Videla said. Military leaders “were in agreement that it was the price that must be paid to win the war against subversion and we needed that it not be obvious so society would not realize it. It was necessary to eliminate a large group of people who could not be brought to justice nor shot either,” he said.
“‘Final Disposition’ was the phrase used. They are two very military words and they mean to take something out of service that is useless. When, for example, you’re talking about a piece of clothing that you no longer use or is no good because it’s worn out, it goes to final disposition.”
The former general said that two months before the March 24, 1976 coup, military leaders began drawing up lists of people they thought should be arrested immediately after the overthrow of Isabel Peron, who was president from 1974 to 1976.
-end quoted passages from original article-
Beware of the lessons of history, and be very concerned that our government is killing and renditioning people without due process. It is unconstitutional for the U.S. government or its officers to rendition or murder an American Citizen without charge or public trial, regardless of the accusations. It is nothing less than Treason and an Act of War against the America People.
