Navy LT. and JAG officer Harvey THARP, made his first major speech
at the San Luis Obispo County Library July 21st, 2005 to the HOPE
DANCE Group of about 70–100 citizens. Mr. Tharp calls Ohio
and is working his way east spreading his view, as a former Navy
JAG, that President BUSH is guilty of international violations of
law amounting to “war crimes." MR. Tharp refused to be a part
of “war crimes." Yet, he was proud of his military service
as a JAG officer. He knows the law and was not going to violate
international law or the U.S. Constitution for President Bush or
anyone at NSA.
message: George W. Bush and the “old Men” at the top of our Government
are engaged in committing WAR CRIMES under international LAW. He,
as a lawyer, trained in the law, was stationed for six months in
Kirkuk, Iraq at their City Hall, with no discernable “chain-of-command,”
no prior experience for the job assigned, and yet could pick
up $50,000 in cash
to distribute for starting up Civic reconstruction projects. With
years in the Air
Force and years in the US
Navy as a JAG officer, Mr. Tharp had a clue about what is legal
and what is illegal, unlawful, and in violation of national and
week later, Harvey Tharp made his first Television appearance on
Santa Maria’s Comcast Channel 25, On Second Thought, hosted by Viet
Nam Veteran, William J. Wagener [who is against Undeclared Wars].
Mr. Tharp made a clear representation that THIS Iraq War is about
deception of Americans, about WAR CRIMES, using well meaning, but
mis-guided American youthful soldiers to commit a WAR of Aggression
under the cover story of stopping “Global Terrorists."
how Mr. Tharp got to resign his officers Commission with almost
a year of Service still owed the U.S. Navy, former Navy LT. Tharp
explained that he had been, or was about to be reassigned to NSA,
National Security Agency, and would be expected to write Propaganda
Military to make WAR CRIMES appear to be just “collateral damage,"
necessary in our world wide fight to stop the alleged “terrorists."
This masking of war crimes, Mr. Tharp explained to his state-side
superior officer would make him an accessory to the on-going “war
crimes” under international law, so he asked for and got his Resignation
of his Officers commission accepted by his Navy Superiors. If it
had been refused, he says he would still have refused to write political
propaganda as acceptable “collateral losses” and gone to military
prison. AS it is, he is free
to speak out and is on his way to Dallas to join a convention of
Veterans Against the War.
Tharp, age 32, is no kid looking for a thrill, looking for fame.
He has no book to promote, and flatly states he is not founding
a “movement." He is just asking Americans, especially the “conservative”
to recognize that Bush is engaged in “WAR CRIMES." And to make a
move against the war pushers, by “writing a letter” telling our
Congressional and U.S. Senate representatives to STOP the war NOW…
or tell them, “we will never again trust or vote for them." He was
speaking to the liberals at SLO County library, but his message
was aimed at convincing moderates and conservatives who don’t want
to see their nation destroyed, to stop BUSH, stop the “endless Wars,"
join the liberals in the street protesting the new WAR with IRAN
which has already started, secretly.
compared the world stage to a gigantic “Chess game," with the
War Mongers being about 1/3 and confidently making a move every
30 minutes, while the Peace People studied each Pro-War move on
the Chess board, “judiciously” but made no move. Then the PRO-WAR
players made another move, without waiting for the PEACE People
to move, and now it was late in the “X-box game” where the WAR Mongers
can attack any place on earth, with impunity, while the 2/3 of the
people were divided. Some not even paying attention, some partially
watching the chess match
and a few judicially studying the WAR Mongers moves so long that
they lose their opportunity to make a counter move. Now it is late
game. IF “50 million Americans” will make a move, Write that
letter, email or send a fax tell your representatives that “you
want to believe in them, the Government” but if they let us be moved
into IRAN for another WAR, you will not vote for them EVER again.
That is Harvey Tharp’s single
move to stop what President G.W. Bush’s calls the necessity of “Endless
Wars” against “terrorist." To most of Europe and the World,
Bush is beginning to look like a Hitler figure and the biggest “terrorist”
on the planet.
Navy LT. Tharp points out, there WERE NO Weapons of Mass Destruction,
WMD, in Iraq, Saddam has long been removed from power, and the lies
are beginning to look very thin and transparent.
of the astonishing things, Mr. Tharp said, was that on June 30th,
when America supposedly turned civilian control of Iraq over to
Iraqis, One billion Dollar$ were deposited into a bank in the Kurds
held territory. And that whenever America pulls out, there will
be instant strife and an internal war. The Kurds will settle for
nothing less than autonomy, and the Islamics of both factions of
Islam will not accept Kurdish autonomy. The longer we stay, the
more wasted American soldier lives and the more “war crimes” by
G.W. Bush will happen.
wants Conservatives to realize they have been betrayed by the “old
men” at the top of our Government in Congress and White House, and
should do something. “Make a move”
a side issue, Mr. Tharp revealed he had become a “Lew Rockwell Libertarian”
by reading Rockwell’s libertarian web
site after work at 3 pm each day. He has yet to vote a straight
libertarian ticket, but sees the view of less government, less wars.
