Quite a number of people are unaware of the fact that atrocities committed by the United States have been going on from the time they slaughtered the native Americans to claim their country for their own, to the present time of claiming the natural resources of other nations for their own. Spouting democracy and freedom, America's propaganda machinery paints them them as good-doers for which other nations lesser than themselves should be jealous of.
News the public is fed with is controlled by powerful people. The Washington Post for example, is a government mouthpiece, and yet reported the Watergate scandal. Nixon was meant to be ousted by what appears to be gangster-type corporate powers stronger than the American presidency.
We can also infer from current events that there must be a joint collaboration between the CIA (and corporate powers) and the Mossad. Both share common objectives, ie the CIA: to protect America's economic interests worldwide; and Mossad: to protect Israeli's interests in the Middle East, which happens to include America's oil fields interests. The Israeli propaganda machinery has succeeded in having the world turn against Arab nations and against the Islam religion (the Al Qaeda scapegoat), but more importantly, the Israelis have also succeeded in having the most powerful nation's military support against their Arab enemies.
So amidst all the media rhetoric of the idiocies of George W Bush, the Cheney-Halliburton rapacious connection, Condi's spouting American demands in the international arena, Karl Rove's mad disinformation and smear campaigns, Rumsfeld's blind-mouthing of Guantanamo-Abu Ghraib all-is-fine-and-well-on-the-Eastern-front, on top of which all the boot-licking senators and congressmen, and the mainstream media's hands-tied-behind-their-backs fearing for their livelihoods and their lives–amid all that we ask: What will it take to end this appalling abuse of power?
What is needed is a very drastic shift in American government policies and the dissolution of certain CIA functions, two of which are the CIA's penchant for proxy wars, and their financial and logistic support of groups of murderers around the world (ex: the Savak, a group of vicious killers under the appellation of "police" established by the Americans and the British in Iran, and Operation Phoenix set up by the Americans in Asia, which saw the murder of thousands of Asians, many of whom were simply unhappy students and farmers).
Unfortunately, Americans are paranoid with fear, a fear which those in power have found most effective to put the people in a "group-think" hysteria that they must be united against the world. They are killing children in Iraq and America's moral indifference is appalling. This is akin to religion in the Middle Ages, where the fear of hell was used to subjugate the people and burning them at the stake for no other crime than being different or being more intelligent than average.
But Americans in general are not malicious. They are simply ignorant. They are not taught to be critical thinkers, but to accept everything without doubt and without question in mainstream media. Americans are also deeply religious.
The minority of Americans who are intellectuals, are too few and too weak to effect any change. Many voice their disgust with their government on the Internet. But it took only one Mahatma Gandhi to benefit India. It took only one Kemal Ataturk to benefit Turkey. It took only one Lee Kwan Yu to benefit Singapore. Where is America's One Man?
Another realistic way is to (1) have the International Criminal Court in the Hague prosecute Americans, AND to (2) transfer the United Nations to a neutral nation in Europe so that accountability for invasions, the trampling of human rights and crimes of this nature are condemned with sanctions by this international organisation.
Accountability is the key word here, and corporate America must be held accountable for crimes against all humanity.
