  2. Seemingly, this is yet another attempt by criminal Americans to attack affluent or legitimate US citizens: attempts to steal American property (at Iraq and US) on the pretense of “giving” it (restitution) to supposed ‘Iraqi’ families…

    Lt. Col John Baker actions are being allowed (tolerated) only because he will end with having his own financial and social sustanance taken from him the very same way he has tried to take away (ruin) Marine Sgt. Hutchins III…

    Americans who exercise their civil rights (here or abroad), rights such as ‘self defense’ are being maliciously prosecuted not for political or moral value, but only for the slimy sake of attempted robbery.

    American taxpayers are being told: because of alledged damage to any persons claiming to be Iraqi, US taxpayer dollars (and the salaries and property of legitimate such Americans) will be offered to these supposed injured Iraqis (such as the undocumented ‘family’ of the undocumented Iraqi man who was passed off as murdered by Hutchins III).

    The so-called Iraqis are never going to see a dime of US taxpayer dollars, and they (even if they are simply criminal Americans or gone Iranians) aren’t really going to gain any (oil wells) property… But this scheme or scam (saying how “Iraqis” are going to get it) is how criminal Americans intend on trying to continue with doing nothing but failing and flailing: at the expense of any American person of value; at the expense of decency, at the cost of actual justice, or for the loss of ultimately what is necessary life sustaining civility at the USA and abroad.
