About June 11, 2004 President Bush and Torture Yesterday at the G8 summit a reporter asked President Bush at a press conference whether torture is ever justified. President Bush was visibly annoyed at the question. The irritated answer from the religious Christian comes: "Look, I'm going to say it one more time... The instructions went out to our people to adhere to law. That ought to comfort you," the AP reports Given that much of the controversy over American use of torture centers on memorandums sent to the White House stating that torture ordered by the President would "be legal" and adhere to the law that does not comfort me, nor does it comfort anyone else. Bush doesn't answer the question. He doesn't say whether he thinks torture is ever justified. He doesn't say whether he's ordered torture or looked the other way when torturers went about their dirty work. He says that "the instructions went out to our people to adhere to the law." The President himself is admitting, in so many words, that torture ocurred with at least the implicit blessing of the White House, because his Attorney General, his Department of Defense and his White House Counsel's Office said that it would "adhere to the law".

The History Guy The Mexican-American War Home Military History Historical Personalities Email ... Search the History Guy Website The Mexican-American War was the first major conflict driven by the idea of "Manifest Destiny"; the belief that America had a God-given right, or destiny, to expand the country's borders from 'sea to shining sea'. This belief would eventually cause a great deal of suffering for many Mexicans, Native Americans and United States citizens. Following the earlier Texas War of Independence from Mexico, tensions between the two largest independent nations on the North American continent grew as Texas eventually became a U.S. state. Disputes over the border lines sparked military confrontation, helped by the fact that President Polk eagerly sought a war in order to seize large tracts of land from Mexico.

    An essay on the war with emphasis on general Kearny's command and the events in Arizona.

    Mineral Creek in PinalsNamed by Gen. Stephen W. Kearny
    The writing of nineteenth-century American history is often dominated by the great and furious events of the Civil War of 1861-1865. This is only rightly so, as that war shaped subsequent American life in ways that reverberate down to even our own time. There was, however, another war in that century, nearly forgotten today, that also had an enormous impact on America: the Mexican War of 1846-1848. In many ways, the Mexican War was, indeed, the forerunner of the Civil War, for most of the great warriors of 1861-1865 actually had their first taste of battle, and tested their character, in the Mexican War. But, even more importantly, as a direct result of the Mexican War the United States acquired dominion over lands that nearly doubled its previous size. The future states of Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and California were all obtained as a direct result of the war. Much of the future economic wealth of the United Statesindeed, its very status as a truly

    The Seven Years' War, 1756-1763 Britain was at war with Spain, and with France, between 1739 and 1748. The results of that contest was inconclusive, and there was no fighting in Newfoundland - no doubt because the French had lost their base at Placentia. However, Anglo-French relations remained tense, particularly in North America, and a long-expected war broke out in May, 1756. Once they had established naval superiority at sea, the British made a series of impressive gains at the expense of France and, later on, of Spain. Slaving stations in West Africa, sugar islands in the Caribbean, and large parts of India all came under British control. Towards the very end of the war, in 1762, French forces attacked St. John's. If successful, the expedition would have strengthened France's hand at the negotiating table. Though they took St. John's and raided nearby settlements, the French forces were eventually defeated by British troops under Colonel William Amherst. The war ended with the Treaty of Paris, signed in 1763. It contained important clauses relating to Newfoundland, including the cession to France of the islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon.

    It should be over in two weeks ... but that could be just the start
    By Wesley Clark
    WHEN the long-anticipated fight against Iraq begins, it may not last long. A reasonably optimistic timeline might look like this: simultaneous airstrikes, Shia revolts and manoeuvres of the coalition ground force on the first day; by Day Four, substantial allied ground forces are near Baghdad; by Day Seven the defences around the capital have fallen; by Day 14 most organised resistance has been defeated, except for isolated elements in the city. But war is the most unpredictable of human activities. British soldiers moving to the front in the glorious days of August 1914 could not have imagined the endless trench warfare to follow. And American GIs in Korea, thrilled by the rapid collapse of North Korean forces after the landings at Inchon, dreamt that they would be home by Christmas 1950, yet the war lasted almost three more years. And then there was Vietnam ... NI_MPU('middle');

    **World Exclusive**
    Two months ago Democratic hopeful Wesley Clark declared in a debate that he has always been firmly against the current Iraq War.
    "I've been very consistent... I've been against this war from the beginning," the former general said in Detroit on October 26.
    "I was against it last summer, I was against it in the fall, I was against it in the winter, I was against it in the spring. And I'm against it now."
    But just six month prior in an op-ed in the LONDON TIMES Clark offered praise for the courage of President Bush's action.
    "President Bush and Tony Blair should be proud of their resolve in the face of so much doubt," Clark wrote on April 10, 2003. "Can anything be more moving than the joyous throngs swarming the streets of Baghdad? Memories of the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the defeat of Milosevic in Belgrade flood back. Statues and images of Saddam are smashed and defiled."
    Even the most ardent Clark supporter will question if Clark's current and past stand on the Iraq war is confusion or deception, after the DRUDGE REPORT reveals:

    132. General Friedrich Von Bernhardi, The Next War
    From 1898 to 1901 he was chief of the war historical section of the general Staff;in 1909 he became the commanding general of the Seventh Army Corps.
    General Friedrich von Bernhardi, The Next War
    [Friedrich von Bernhardi (1849-1930), born of Estonian-German parents, was the outstanding military writer of his day. From 1898 to 1901 he was chief of the war historical section of the General Staff; in 1909 he became the commanding general of the Seventh Army Corps. Germany and the Next War was the second volume of Vom heutigen Kriege On War Today ). Bernhardi wrote under the direct influence of the Second Morocco crisis and can scarcely disguise his impatience and alarm over the government's lack of determination. Criticism of Germany's current leadership is implicit throughout the excerpts translated here. Bernhardi's ideas did not correspond to the official views of the kaiser's government or even the general staff, but they were fully in keeping with those of the extreme nationalists in the Pan-German League. War was, according to men of these views, a right and a duty, a biological imperative sanctioned by the findings of Darwin. The choice was expansionism or certain death, "world power or decline." Invoking a higher morality, geopolitics, the logic of history, and citing Bismarck as the ultimate authority, Bernhardi advocated aggressive war, for which the nation had to be prepared materially and psychologically. Negotiating conflicts of interest between the Great Powers could not be considered a serious option. It was rather a sign of weakness. He preached the necessity of war with an urgency bordering on panic. His book caused a sensation at home and abroad and was in its ninth edition by the outbreak of the world war.

    In 1908 the British Army began testing the feasibility of using commercial motor buses as troop transport in the event of an emergency. The manoeuvres using twenty-four buses were very successful and it was decided that they would be used in future wars.
    In August 1914, Winston Churchill , the First Lord of the Admiralty, asked the London General Omnibus Company to provide buses for the use of moving troops in France. The company asked for volunteers from among their conductors and drivers and eventually 75 crews were chosen and then recruited into the Royal Marines . In September 1914, 75 Diamler buses and crews were shipped to France. Some of the buses were captured by the Germans but the rest remained in France until the end of the war in November, 1918.

    1,008 officers were appointed to the various general ranks on both sides during the American Civil War. In the Union Army, for most of the war, there were only two general ranks, brigadier and major. In 1864 the rank of lieutenant general was reactivated and given to Ulysses Simpson Grant. The three grades were distinguished by their insignia: one star for brigadier general, two for major general and three for lieutenant general. In the Confederate Army, by 1862 there were four grades of general: brigadier, major, lieutenant and full general. All wore the same insignia making it impossible to identify a general´s rank by his uniform. This site contains pictures of 425 Confederate and 583 Union general officers.

    Retired general assails U.S. policy on Iraq
    Warnings ignored, says retired Marine
    By Rick Rogers
    UNION-TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER April 16, 2004 Retired Marine Gen. Anthony Zinni wondered aloud yesterday how Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld could be caught off guard by the chaos in Iraq that has killed nearly 100 Americans in recent weeks and led to his announcement that 20,000 U.S. troops would be staying there instead of returning home as planned. "I'm surprised that he is surprised because there was a lot of us who were telling him that it was going to be thus," said Zinni, a Marine for 39 years and the former commander of the U.S. Central Command. "Anyone could know the problems they were going to see. How could they not?" At a Pentagon news briefing yesterday, Rumsfeld said he could not have estimated how many troops would be killed in the past week. Zinni made his comments during an interview with The San Diego Union-Tribune For years Zinni said he cautioned U.S. officials that an Iraq without Saddam Hussein would likely be more dangerous to U.S. interests than one with him because of the ethnic and religious clashes that would be unleashed.

    Broken Engagement
    The strategy that won the Cold War could help bring democracy to the Middle East if only the Bush hawks understood it. By Gen. Wesley Clark During 2002 and early 2003, Bush administration officials put forth a shifting series of arguments for why we needed to invade Iraq. Nearly every one of these has been belied by subsequent events. We have yet to find any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq; assuming that they exist at all, they obviously never presented an imminent threat. Saddam's alleged connections to al Qaeda turned out to be tenuous at best and clearly had nothing to do with September 11. The terrorists now in Iraq have largely arrived because we are there, and Saddam's security forces aren't. And peace between Israel and the Palestinians, which prominent hawks argued could be achieved "only through Baghdad," seems further away than ever. Advocates of the invasion are now down to their last argument: that transforming Iraq from brutal tyranny to stable democracy will spark a wave of democratic reform throughout the Middle East, thereby alleviating the conditions that give rise to terrorism. This argument is still standing because not enough time has elapsed to test it definitivelythough events in the year since Baghdad's fall do not inspire confidence. For every report of a growing conversation in the Arab world about the importance of democracy, there's another report of moderate Arabs feeling their position undercut by the backlash against our invasion. For every example of progress (Libya giving up its WMD program), there's an instance of backsliding (the Iranian mullahs purging reformist parliamentarians).
