Guatemala General Rios Montt:Israel,Reagan,Bush,CIA,U.S.AID Complicit In Mayan Genocide
While one distrtaction from a real investigatioin of the massacres of Mayan people in Guatemala in the 1980s
is a recent trial of ex General Rios Montt for genocide the truth is that his guilt is in fact nothing less than an indictment and conviction of many U.S.and Israeli arms and drug traffickers using anti-communism as an excuse to profit from the above sai vices as well as to use Central America for a drug traffficking base from which to sale or exchasnge arms and in turn fund war crimes in the Middle East,particulary in Iraq and in Iran at that time.
Probably W Bush's daddy George Herbert Walker Bush deserves more 'credit' for stirring up the phony 'anti-communist' war throughout Central America than Reagan himself who probably didn't have a clue what fascist scum like Ollie North and other of GHW 'Poppy' Bush drug and arms traffficking sabateurs and terrorists were up to most of the time.
While Israel supplied arms to General Rios Montt and his ilk in Guatemala in the 1980s they also built a
Gallil military rifle factory in Guatemala for all its civil war carrying on needs and suppliued jeeps such as the one present President Molina was seen riding on during that time as well as helicopters that the U.S.government was prohibited at that time from selling or giving to them.In my opinion it would be good if ex General Rios Montt or even present President Molina or others involved in the conflict at the same time spill the beans and fill in some of the blank spots into this shameful past of attempting a final holocaust against the Mayan people.Israelis and those who support them should bare the guilt of the 'Jews' or white people of European origen who erroneously claim to be 'Jews' ond victims of holocaustr themselves,in the role of murdering and torturing and raping some of the most friendly and gentle people on the planet !

Indeed, Ronald Reagan – by aiding, abetting, encouraging and covering up widespread human rights crimes in El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua as well as Guatemala – bears greater responsibility for Central America’s horrors than does Rios Montt in his bloody 17-month rule. Reagan supported Guatemala’s brutal repression both before and after Rios Montt held power, as well as during.

This Israeli arms pipeline to Iran already was functioning at the time of the policy shift on July 21, 1981. Three days earlier, on July 18, an Argentine plane strayed off course and crashed (or was shot down) inside the Soviet Union exposing Israel’s secret arms shipments to Iran, which apparently had been going on for months.
After the plane went down, Assistant Secretary of State for the Middle East Nicholas Veliotes tried to get to the bottom of the mysterious weapons flight. “According to the [flight] documents,” Veliotes said later in an interview with PBS Frontline, “this was chartered by Israel and it was carrying American military equipment to Iran. …
“And it was clear to me after my conversations with people on high that indeed we had agreed that the Israelis could transship to Iran some American-origin military equipment. Now this was not a covert operation in the classic sense, for which probably you could get a legal justification for it. As it stood, I believe it was the initiative of a few people [who] gave the Israelis the go-ahead. The net result was a violation of American law.”
The reason that the Israeli weapons shipments violated U.S. law was that no formal notification had been given to Congress about the transshipment of U.S. military equipment as required by the Arms Export Control Act.
But the Reagan administration was in a bind about notifying Congress and thus the American people about approving arms shipments to Iran so soon after the hostage crisis. The news would have infuriated many Americans and stoked suspicions that the Republicans had cut a deal with Iran to hold the hostages until Carter was defeated.
In checking out the Israeli flight, Veliotes also came to believe that the arrangement between Ronald Reagan’s camp and Israel regarding Iran and weapons dated back to before the 1980 election.
“It seems to have started in earnest in the period probably prior to the election of 1980, as the Israelis had identified who would become the new players in the national security area in the Reagan administration,” Veliotes said. “And I understand some contacts were made at that time.”
Veliotes: “Between Israelis and these new players.”
One memo from Wolfowitz to McFarlane – regarding the Israeli channel on Iran – noted that “for this dialogue to be fruitful it must remain restricted to an extraordinarily small number of people.”
Though this secret conduit between the neocons and Israel may have originated before Election 1980, it continued, with some fits and starts, for years finally merging with what became known as the Iran-Contra Affair of 1985-86. In that scandal, Reagan secretly authorized the sale of U.S. anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles to Iran through Israel.
The documents – declassified by National Archives personnel at the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California – suggest that the Iran-Contra machinations were an outgrowth of these earlier U.S. contacts with Israel regarding arms sales to Iran dating back to 1980-81......
But the policy shift did amount to an acceptance of Israeli shipments of at least non-U.S.-origin weapons to Iran. Israeli and U.S. government sources involved in the operations have told me that those shipments continued unabated for years, totaling in the tens of billions of dollars, with some of the profits going to fund Jewish settlements in the Palestinian territories.
