Weapons of Mass Financing

From WorldNetDaily-

"According to one American diplomat in Baghdad, "The Iraqis are free to choose whatever vision of Iraq they want. That's entirely up to them. It's entirely up to us, the United States, who we choose to support. We can use these funds [billions in promised reconstruction aid] elsewhere." "

If the United States truly abides by the wishes of the Iraqi people(I know they won't), I hope the Iraqi people tell their attackers that they want them to stuff their money up their arrogant asses! Besides, it IS true that these funds can be used elsewhere, such as putting a band aid on the gaping wound open across the American populace. Iraqis can rebuild their nation at a fraction of the projected costs put forth by the United States and they should be entitled to(architectural democracy?).

Is it still no-bid season for Dick Cheney and his fat-ass, duck-hunting Halliburton cronies? Oh, I forgot, it's mandate season, and the US is just "adjusting " the Iraqi mandate at this "time". Stealing votes is rather easy- it's the getting away with it that is the trick, and with a total media subservience to Bush, getting away with it is a given. The fox is in the chicken house and the farmer is migrating out of the dust bowl.

Enron was really an economic blob and as it eats its way around the world it just gets fatter and fatter. This not-so-veiled threat at withholding American dollars from Iraq should be met with a resounding "take your money and stuff it where the sun don't shine." I'm sure freedom from US domination is far more important than any financial arrangement, especially when the blood on the money is a grim reminder of where it came from.

 

Profound Hypocrisy

The hypocrisy that the Bush administration displays almost makes me want to puke!

It is OK for the United States to attack and occupy a nation half way around the globe on the bases of proven lies, yet it is wrong for Syria to provide protective insurance to its neighbor, Lebanon, against Israel? Imagine for one moment what the United States would do if in the future Central American nations became a military threat to Mexico! The best way to stabilize the Middle East and let it get back to political status quo is to quit pumping billions of dollars into Israel every year!

It is OK for the United States and Israel to have weapons of mass destruction and actually use them on people and nations that are no threat to us, yet it is wrong for other nations to possess them when they are in fact in our gun sights? Iraq was disarming according to UN provisions when it was attacked, so how can the United States expect and demand trust from nations after this monumental double cross? Anyone who is not a total fool would act the same way and arm as insurance against another US invasion!

It is OK for the United States to terrorize people into submission, people that have nothing to do with terrorism other than being victim to it? The war on terror IS terrorism by any definition, and it is spawning a new generation of people with a legitimate grievance against the United States, thanks to our heartless, greedy and immoral leaders!

The hypocrisy is smelling up this world!

 

Larry, More & Syria

Syria killed Hariri? Yea right . . . Syria is just going to jump in front of an oncoming train! Gimme a break . . . and wake up the zombie masses for chrissakes! Just like we're supposed to believe that Arabs are at the root of all terrorism, now we, and more importantly, the Lebanese, are supposed to believe that Syria is the culprit?

This is parallel to Americans having to believe that George Bush won the election("getting over it") and thus a mandate from them. All wars could be prevented if proper legal investigations were conducted before nations attacked each other on false premises. These investigations would always show that a very small group of ruthless men, who profit by war, are at the heart of provocations of war. It is the general population that suffers from these wars. Provocations of war by false flag terrorism are not meant to be investigated. When there is no proper investigation, you know it is false flag!

Now would someone please tell me why Syria would want to start a war with the United States?

 

911 Building Fire Myth

I am a farmer in Central California and have used oxyacetylene torches to cut metal for many years. I think that most people who have never used this method to cut metal are unaware of the tremendous temperatures it takes to not only bend metal, but cut through it. I recently had a conversation with a 20 year old college student who was still under the impression that the World Trade Centers collapsed because of the heat generated by jet fuel burning that caused the steel girders in the building to melt. He obviously hadn't done any reading on alternative news sites because this young man is very intelligent and would easily grasp the impossibility of this scenario.

I stated to him that the temperatures generated by the burning jet fuel were nowhere near to being able to melt the WTC metal frames and he responded that the buildings collapsed PROBABLY because the frames only got hot enough to BEND, thus causing the weight of the buildings on top of the fires to collapse. I responded that the temperature needed to bend metal is very close to the temperature where you can actually cut through it with a torch. Both of these temperatures are far and above those which were caused by the burning jet fuel. I also added that the second WTC that was attacked fell BEFORE the first one attacked, even though it had an 18 minute delay in its fire starting. Also, most of the fuel from this airliner burnt up in the air as the plane made a corner hit on the building, not a 90 degree approach into the center of the building.

I think it is quite obvious to anyone who uses reason here that the fires in the Trade Centers did not cause the collapse of the buildings, especially now in light of the many witnesses who reported explosions all through the buildings. The mainstream media, in its job of covering up for the government, has obviously steared clear of anyone who throws doubt in the official government version of this event. This has happened again and again through the years but the American public for the most part is too brainwashed, blind and misinformed to see these continuous blatant acts of government coverups! It is like they do not want their ungrounded beliefs in the "good" of their government and nation challenged by even documented facts.

Here is a final thought- as a building like the one that in Madrid burns it should technically be LESS prone to collapse because tons of weight are being eliminated from its structure(inner contents of the building) by the ongoing fire. Once one accepts, through reasonable thought, that fires in buildings are not close to the temperatures needed to bend and/or cut metal, 911 comes into better focus as an event with a tremendous amount of suspicious and unanswered questions. I just do not see how anyone with any unbiased study of it can come away with anything less!

 

Sectarian Violence In Iraq

It is hard for me to accept that Sunnis are serious enough about the election results to attack Shias, who are winning and considered occupational collaborators. Certainly Iraqis can see that sectarian violence plays right into the hands of the occupiers, and after a two-year imposed nightmare on the Iraqis population I am sure their memories are not that short that they would start killing each other and forget the real villain in all of this, the United States.

The only way that Iraq will ever throw off the yoke of colonialism is for the Iraqi people to remain united against a common foe that is really responsible for their current state of misery. This does not necessarily have to translate itself into anti-coalition violence. Sectarian groups in Iraq have to look past their differences and remember the last two years of murder, rape, thievery and humiliation that they have been subjected to by a foreign invader.

I am sure that a significant majority of Iraqis feel the same way, but what can these people do when there is an occupational force that does not want to leave them alone to manage their own affairs, and apparently will stop at nothing to remain in Iraq. Most Americans still do not even have a clue that 911 was a false-flag operation designed to cover up the fascist nature of our own government and provide impetus for attacks on oil-rich Arab nations. What is to stop Israeli/American/British covert ops in Iraq from instigating and maybe even carrying out anti-Shia violence to stir up a civil war? The answer is nothing!

The bottom line in all of this is that Bush and Co. is NOT interested in the welfare of the American people, let alone Iraqis! Once one accepts this everything comes into clear focus. It explains everything that has happened since Bush and his repunk mafia stole the 2000 election. What this means is that not only will the United States welcome sectarian violence in Iraq, because is provides a freebie reason for them to remain as a "guardian", but it will even go so far as to encourage and facilitate it. The era of Iraq's own version of "Hamas" is upon us.

 

Stolen US vs. Stolen Iraqi Election

The delaying of the announcement of Iraqi election results seems to be taking place to "readjust" the real results to favor United States' choices for candidates. Also, this delay seems to be making the American public forget about the elections for the most part, after massive media coverage when they occurred. After our elections, activist groups and independent researchers tried to get to the bottom of the major discrepancies in exit polling as compared to the final tally. There were also thousands of cases of voter suppression and vote machine "malfunction" that were documented and brought forth by these concerned and good citizens, only to be swept under the rug by a rubber stamp Congress.

We did not see any massive outpouring of protest here like we saw after the Ukrainian elections, which were actually held again. Personally, I don't think the Iraqis are going to take tainted election results and "get over it". They are already engaged in an anti-occupation insurgency and in a fighting mentality, so a stolen Iraqi election will be just one more log into the fireplace of discontent and injustice. Meanwhile, their American "liberators" go about their daily lives like a drugged pack of sheep, willing to let the criminals who stole their government operate with impunity.

One of the reasons for attacking Iraq was supposedly to bring them "freedom and democracy". If the election results are not honored, if they are changed to suit US corporate needs, then we have shown once again that our justifications for attacking are totally false and misleading. It is ironic that we would attack a nation to "free" them, when it is the Iraqi people who are the ones who are really trying to free themselves while the compliant American public, which isn't really free as attested to by the unilateral machinations of the Bush administration as well as a two stolen elections, sits back in the thought that they are actually freeing Iraqis! This is such a gross misperception.

 

Sirhan Did NOT Kill Robert Kennedy!

What is all the fuss about Arnold Schwarzenagger running for president, and maybe even getting elected? After all, the presidency is nothing more than a sales-pitch position for corporations nowadays, so what does it matter WHO is doing the sales pitch? What it comes down to is that people who even bother to vote are doing nothing more than rubber-stamping our fake “democracy”. Anyone who actually believes that our presidential candidates are truly candidates of the people is in fairy tale land.

I am willing to go along with this fake system under one condition. Consider this- if in fact Arnold is elected, it will certainly be largely a result of his good guy/clean cut/hero movie persona. In his roles, he always seems to go after the bad guys as an army of one, not really needing much assistance from other fighters. My condition for accepting Arnold and other such Hollywood Bimbo Mafia presidential candidates is if they get elected, they will have to carry on the roles, for the public, that made them popular in the first place. For Arnold, this would mean he would have to grab a modern arsenal of weapons and lead the military into battle, crushing everyone and everything in sight with awesome firepower with that intense look of agony on his face. The networks can imbed cameramen to show Arnold in action!

This would also allow us all to see a real “man” in action. Didn’t Arnold say something at the Republican convention to the effect that men who are against war are “not men”- something in that light? Hmmm . . . This was just another one of those Bushist kick-them-in-the-balls statements that are uttered because the person on the attack knows he will not have to prove its authenticity, having the media on their side. Based on Arnold’s past “service“, he will probably put on some muscular poses for the most stupid-ass nation on the face of the earth! Unlike Bush, Arnold actually has muscles, whereas Bush has to use the muscles in his deceptive face to stir America.

If Arnold is as brave as he thinks he is, let him stand up against the real bads guys like JFK did. I am talking about the military/industrial complex, with its guardian CIA and FBI angels, and their constant sowing of the seeds of war. JFK got shot at in WW2 and was a decorated hero(like Kerry in Viet Nam), for those of you who have been brainwashed about the “evil” Kennedys. This smearing started after Joe Kennedy publicly and correctly recognized the Zionist dangers in Germany BEFORE WW2 as FDR’s US Ambassador to England. This got him fired.

Until the the imposters in government are weeded out, the “reality” that will envelop our lives will be just like the air that was produced for the people on Mars in the movie Total Recall. These people lived under a dome and were kept in slavery and poverty because the state produced the air that they breathed and the false belief that breaking the dome would mean death to all. Arnold was the hero in this movie. He sure as hell won’t break the dome of delusion that hangs over Americans.. He is nothing but a puppet of the masters of delusion! He is the plastic man.

Defeating The Politics of Hate

One of the best ways to bring down the politics of hate, I feel, is to let it die a death of its own. Hatred is a self-consuming thing that wreaks havoc on a person's reasoning and feelings. It is an emotional disease that comes from a person's own lack of self-esteem. When people like Hitler and (now) Bush appeal(ed) to people's hatred, they are in effect replacing that lack of self-esteem with national pride, or in Hitler's terminology, national socialism. Since these people do not have much self-esteem, they are being given a nationalistic sense of it to fill the vacuum in their own personal lives.

Lack of self-esteen comes partly from a person being unaware of things that can have a positive bearing on their lives. It comes mainly from an upbringing where parents are too authoritarian to their children. These types of upbringings instill FEAR in children, instead of knowledge on how to exercise CAUTION towards things that may cause them harm. This fear makes these children basically robots that the state can control later on. Children that are brought up and taught to think for themselves, to use their minds to rationalize and research things, are invariably the ones who later on will hold their government accountable for its actions. This is the true spirit of democracy.

As the saying goes- you can't teach an old dog new tricks- so unfortunately it seems that once these fear-ridden and emotionally-abused and manipulated children grow into adulthood they are irreversibly tainted with self-hatred. They cannot and will not open their minds to anything that threatens their narrow-minded views that have been pasted on their minds by our institutions. It usually takes a tragedy of life-changing proportions before they even begin to consider alternate realities. This happens many times when a soldier is killed in a war and in his relatives' grief to come to grips with death, their minds are more open to truth.

Knowledgeable and aware people in these United States are up against a gigantic wall of hatred and close-mindedness when it comes to trying to inform their fellow citizens about crimes that our government leaders are committing on a daily basis. It is terribly frustrating to know that something is wrong and yet know one will listen, and/or worse yet, condemn you for trying to educate others. Imagine how people who see UFO's feel: they are treated like loonies when trying to relate the experience to others.

I am beginning to really believe that the only way to bring down the politics of hate is to let it collapse upon itself. Unfortunately, many people will be hurt and killed in the process, but maybe this is the only experience that can open up people's minds to reality anymore. If people openly protest a government's policies, they only become the patsies blamed for any collapse to a newly-indoctrinated generation of children, and the cycle of national socialism starts anew. When reason is replaced by fear, only then the sheep can easily be led to slaughter!

 

Selective Caring

Here are a few analogies you might want to put to someone who blindly gives their allegiance to anything that the government dictates-

If you guard your computer against viruses and other malicious software infections you are a good pc owner.
If you guard your children against harm you are a good parent.
If you take care in watching what you eat you are a health-conscious person.
If you exercise concern in what is going on in your community you are a good citizen.
However, if you try to educate and alert others on the malicious criminals infecting our own government you are "un-American".
Go figure!

 

911- Dancing Israelis Bait?

Here is a thought that might provoke some discussion-

Suppose the "dancing israelis" arrested on 911 while celebrating the collapse of the Twin Towers were meant to draw suspicion on Israeli involvement on purpose? Crazy, you might say? Well consider this- Israeli Zionists have such a firm command over the mainstream media in this nation that anything is practically possible. They could use such a stunt and get away with it by simply regulating the flow of information about it in the media.

Before I give you the reason for such a stunt, let me say that obvious screwups such as getting caught celebrating the Twin Towers destruction in clear public view does not sound like something that could occur in such a highly sensitive operation. Anyone involved in 911 would certainly keep as low as possible, particularly on that day. But here we have five Israelis dancing and actually DRAWING attention while filming the collapse of the Twin Towers!

If suspicions are planted in the public's mind, they can serve to filter out possible enemies of any eventual agenda on the part of the 911 conspirators. It is like holding out a piece of candy to a bunch of sweet-starved kids and simply punishing the kids that want it more. In other words, it lets the conspirators know who is willing and in the mind to dig for the truth behind 911, setting them up to be dealt with in some way down the road. During Hitler's reign in Germany, intellectuals were basically in the same class as Jews, communists, gypsies, homosexuals, etc- people the state considered a threat to its security.

If those dancing Israelis hadn't been caught, we still would certainly have our legitimate suspicions about Israel, but such a screwup in a highly sensitive operation like 911 makes no sense to me. In the world of government, politics and media I have learned one thing- there is a reason for everything that is being played out on the stage.

Technically, Bush Is NOT A War President

Here is an argument that people can use when faced with the "Bush is a wartime president and thus should not be criticized." Our Constitution explicitly spells out how the United States goes to war- only if Congress declares war on another nation. This has not occurred since right after Pearl Harbor as every military engagement and subsequent quagmire that we have gotten into since then has been the result of a presidential order. When the decision for war is left in the hands of the president, it makes it easy for the war-related industries, who profit immensely by war, to steer the president's judgments and decisions. It becomes a matter of the special interests that finance and back a president pulling the levers of war! In a democratic and constitutional sense, this is not war but a scam!

When I hear the refrain "Don't criticize Bush, a wartime president!", it makes me want to throw up. The more people use this justification to silence dissent the more I realize that 911 WAS an event orchestrated to give Bush "wartime" powers and a tool to keep people in this nation in line with the agenda of conquest. George Bush is NOT a wartime president because Congress never declared war on anyone- they simply surrendered this most important responsibility and right to a president thoroughly compromised by his corporate cronies and the government of Israel. In other words, as far as the constitution goes, those who gave Bush this power to wage war, without the American people involved in the decision-making process through their elected representatives, are all traitors!

So when you hear that familiar phrase- "It is treason to criticize a wartime president"- or something in that vein, quickly retort that Bush is NOT a wartime president because Congress never declared war as the Constitution stipulates that it must. Also, by constantly shielding Bush from criticism in this manner this administration clearly shows why "war" is being waged in the first place- to suppress dissent. We do not have a war in Iraq, we have a CRIME being committed against people who never did any harm to United States citizens other than living above massive amounts of oil that our corporate puppet leaders will commit genocide to acquire!

Bush is NOT a wartime president but a WAR CRIMINAL president. There is a big difference between the two.

Is Activism A Waste of Time?

Is massive organized protest in the United States an outgrowth of the CIA? Allowing massive protest demonstrations helps feed the argument that this is a free nation. There seems to be a cat and mouse game going on between the government and protestors. Each side is acknowledging that until a certain point of protest is not breached, there will be no massive bloodshed and reprisal.

A true powerful revolution cannot come from the heart of one individual, but from millions who finally recognize that many others feel the same revulsion that they do. This is the main benefit of mass activism in a nation where true democracy is buried next to Jimmy Hoffa. It allows people the exchange of feelings and ideas and creates a broader-based political movement.

Actually, my first thought tonight as I sat down to write this letter was how activists would eventually have to accept the fact that violence might be the only way to affect positive change today. But reconsidering I went back to the principal of nonviolence as an effective tool. When times are tough for those of us who truly respect the Constitution of the United States of America, we can sometimes get to the point of violence, but all that does is beget more violence(a prime example of this is how mean and ugly those there Iraqis have become since we started hurling bombs at them).

The battle for justice requires unending patience and vigilance. It is not like winning the Super Bowl, but an unending season. The best we can hope for is a fair representation of the people that pay this nation's bills!


 

Syria and Iran Helping Iraqi Insurgency?

When the United States attacked Iraq in March 2003 the Bush administration gave Americans the impression that it posed a serious threat to its neighbors as well as the rest of the world. Now the Bush administration wants us to believe that Iran and Syria, two neighbors, are assisting the insurgency that battles the US occupational forces. If Iraq was really that much of a threat to these two nations, then why would they now turn coat and assist the insurgency? Once again, Bush goes with a "story" that suits the purposes of his divide and conquer agenda.

Let me ask WRH readers and Americans this question- suppose Mexico, Canada, Central or South American or Caribbean nations, OUR neighbors, were attacked and occupied by another nation. I realize that under present circumstances this is very unlikely and improbable, but for one moment put yourself in the shoes of Iraq's neighbors, in particular the nations that Israel(and thus the United States) considers its Middle Eastern enemies. Do you think for one moment the United States would tolerate this? We have installed puppet military dictatorships in South and Central America for decades under the THEORY(excuse) of communist expansionism!

The hypocrisy in this nation, and in particular in Washington DC, is really stinking up the place! We go into Iraq and inflict over 100,000 deaths with hi-tech weaponry and expect other nations in our gun sights to sit nice and polite until its their turn to be attacked? People like Ann Coulter, who mindlessly espouse the "righteousness" of slaughter for the good of mankind, should have their families murdered, abused and raped, their houses burnt down, their neighborhoods destroyed, before they have the audacity to justify these things for innocent and defenseless peoples! I can guarantee one thing to these hate-mongering monsters- if they were attacked in the manner that they want others to be attacked around the world by our government, I am sure they would quickly change their tune.

By attempting to lay blame at the doorstep of Iraq's neighbors this administration once again is showing that it SEEKS military confrontation instead of peaceful ways to avoid it. When your children will not be the ones to have their heads blown off in a needless war, when you are making lots of money from the sponsors of these wars, when you don't have an ounce of human decency or "compassionate conservatism"(what a crock!) in your body, you will probably go right along with the killing and plunder!


 

The Last Resort

Most Americans have to be completely frustrated by now, especially after another display of non-representation by our elected representatives yesterday. Just remember this one thing as we move ahead into another nightmarish four years of George Bush and Co,- anytime a government refuses or blocks an investigation into apparent wrongdoing, it not only is not doing its sworn duty, but it is covering up wrongdoing on the part of its members. When someone or something refuses to be investigated, you can bet that there is something there to hide, period!

Many people may be asking themselves just what can be done when all avenues of legal democratic means have been used to no avail. I have a suggestion for these people that may save them and alot of others lots of pain and trouble- let the present members of this illegal, compromised and immoral government hang themselves. If all else fails, this seems to be the ultimate check on those leaders who would totally subvert human democratic processes for personal gain. I have a strong confidence that the true American spirit will prevail as these criminals we call our leaders hang themselves one by one!

In the movie "War of the Worlds"(Orson Welles) it looked hopeless for earthlings as the alien invaders destroyed everything in their path with ease, using high tech weaponry that rendered our weapons useless. What finally destroyed the alien invaders was something totally unseen to the naked eye- bacteria! What is going to eventually bring down the "alien" invaders of the United States government is the putrid hatred that they espouse to create a lynch mob mentality among the American people. This hatred is going to consume these people and bring them down, mark my word!

It took almost 60,000 dead American troops in Viet Nam before this nation militarily withdrew, and in the 30 years since that moment, we have not been attacked by Viet Nam and the domino theory of communist advance has not taken place. This was one of the main reasons that we supposedly went to fight in Viet Nam- another lie to justify a war that made the war industries richer. How many more deaths will it take in Iraq before people once again have the numbers to turn the tide to sanity again here in the states? 50,000? 100,000? One thing is certain- the number of deaths in Iraq is not now and will never be a factor for the warmongering monsters that inhabit the White House.

Once again, as in the Viet Nam saga, it will be the American people who will be lied to, who will suffer, who will pay with their hard-earned money, who will be abused by our legal institutions, and who will eventually reach a stage of mass revulsion. Unfortunately, when this nightmare is over with, people will quickly forget the real reasons and culprits and our children will be educated to believe that America's present failures are to be blamed on those that stood up against the insanity. Then in another 30 years or so, we will have another brainwashed generation ready to attack some other nation under the guise of spreading democracy and freedom and fighting some imaginary enemy! WE may rid the present pack of government war lackeys, but their masters will live on to fool the public into fighting more wars for them.


 

Under The Rug Again!

From Yahoo News:

"White House spokesman Scott McClellan dismissed the move as politically driven. . . .
Many Democrats oppose challenging the Ohio vote, concerned that it would do little but antagonize voters who consider the election over. The numbers are also politically daunting: Bush won an Ohio recount by more than 118,000 votes, and won nationally by more than 3 million."

Politically-driven? Why is it that everything that anyone does that brings into question this administration's actions is considered "politically driven"? The final numbers of the election are NOT important here, only how they were arrived at. This administration's use of the "politically driven" accusation towards its critics is much like accusing the Iraqi people of politicization for complaining about being attacked! How can this government be concerned about "antagonizing" voters when millions have already taken to the streets to protest in vain? There is only one political party that is "politicizing" everything nowadays, making the retention of power its ultimate goal, and that is the Republican party!

The Bush administration has tried to thwart EVERY investigation that deals with important issues that we face as a nation and this only tells me that they have many things to hide from the public. If people cannot see the obviousness with which Bush stole the last two elections, they are in denial or not paying any attention at all, because it is as obvious as the day has a sun!


 

Hamas and Elections

It is funny and contradictory why Israel would want to stifle Hamas participation in elections in Palestine. I would like to think that Hamas participation in Palestinian "democracy" would lessen the possibility of "terrorist" attacks against Israel. This action on the part of Isreal tells me three things right off the bat-

1) There will be no fair elections in Palestine
2) Israel wants to keep their relationship with Hamas in a confrontational, instead of political, mode.
3) Basically, Israel will NOT let Palestinians have a voice, thus throwing a roadblock in the way of a Palestinian state.

While the United States spends billions to supposedly bring "freedom and democracy" to Iraq, we give billions to a nation that stifles democracy in the most blatant of ways!


 

No-Win Situation For REAL Americans

Regardless of what happens from here on out with regard to the war on terror, the most pressing problem for Americans who oppose Bush and Co.'s repressive policies is the rampant and all-pervasive ignorance on the part of millions of their fellow citizens. If American troops are eventually recalled en masse from Iraq, where they are running around in circles and accomplishing little more than further enflaming anti-American hatred, while getting themselves killed for the oil companies and Israel, the blame for "retreat" or "defeat", whatever it will be termed by the media, will be placed in the laps of those who opposed the Iraq war.

History that was taught after the Viet Nam war to young people in this nation implicated the antiwar movement for our failures in South East Asia. This is one of the main reasons why the United States has yet to learn from its experiences there- because it cannot face up to the realities of Viet Nam, instead placing blame on its fellow citizens, just like Hitler did after World War One. Viet Nam ended the way it did because US engagement there was uncalled-for and unjustified, just like it is in Iraq right now. If a nation enters into war based on obfuscation and lies, the military and any eventual occupation will always be tainted and hamstrung by this. If you can't win the hearts and minds of people in a truthful way, you can never really win a war!

The biggest battle facing this nation is the battle against lies and ignorance, against the massive infrastructure of propaganda that now controls the thoughts and feelings if millions of misled Americans. It is these misled Americans who will be used to discredit and do harm to those of us who revere the truth and facts and condemn all forms of governmental deceit. As long as the government and its war-mongering and profiteering handlers can convince Americans that our shortcomings in war are not the result of our own miscalculations and misconceptions, but of "traitors" amongst us, they will be able to continue waging wars against innocent peoples everywhere. This is why the battle for truth here in the states supercedes any and all battles around the globe!


 

Terrorist Detainees Manchurian Candidates?

Much ado has been made, and rightfully so, about the civil rights violations of people that are currently being held without charge and/or legal counsel in prisons like Guantanamo and Abu Graib. The United States is violating the Geneva Conventions in their treatment of these prisoners, many of whom are undoubtedly innocent people. Another thought occurred to me regarding this situation.

Could it be that all of these prisoners are being "groomed" to be our next generations' crop of terrorists? Is the CIA experimenting on these prisoners, trying to find the correct psychological mind-altering recipe to churn out a massive crop of Manchurian candidates? For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term "Manchurian candidate", this is someone who is hypnotized and programmed to respond to certain inputs that make him commit acts, such as assassinations, for his handlers. If anyone out there finds this farfetched, just take a quick look at the Robert Kennedy assassination and Sirhan Sirhan, who was diagnosed as being in the top .1% of hypnotizable subjects in the world and according to some witnesses to this assassination, apparently in a trancelike state as he emptied a pistol in Kennedy's direction.

It took four large men to get the gun out of Sirhan's hand! George Plimpton, one of the four men, stated later that Sirhan had a contented and peaceful look in his eyes. Sirhan himself does not remember firing at Kennedy. His last memory before being wrestled by four men was a lady asking him if he wanted cream and sugar in his coffee earlier in the evening. (
http://scribblguy.50megs.com/illusion.htm) Right before he started shooting he was seen talking to a young lady in a polka dot dress. This lady disappeared after the shooting finished and an all-points bulletin for her and another man was inexplicably cancelled by LAPD right after it was issued!

I would not put it past the Bush administration and its clique of war profiteers to be "training" a whole new flock of terrorists to keep the justification for the war on terror in place for years to come! The scary thing about this is even Sirhan, after 35 years in prison, has still not had the lock to his memory "picked" by hypnotists to see if in fact he was programmed by someone to kill. The main reason for this has been interference by officials who will not allow this to happen. If someone is doing this to current "terrorist" detainees in war on terror prisons, we may never know for sure who REALLY is behind any terrorism that they may execute in the future!


 

Iraqis Need Independence, Not Elections

If insurgent violence is the main argument used to prove that Iraqis cannot take care of their own security, then a simple solution would greatly enhance Iraqi prospects of securing their own country- that would be for the United States and Britain to leave, since 99% of the insurgent violence is directed at them.

This administration would have us believe that the violence is an attempt to stop or curtail Iraqi elections, but that is another lie that can be put next to the others that we have heard these past three years. Insurgent violence is directed at the occupational forces because 1) they are illegally occupying a nation and 2) the occupiers illegally attacked Iraq in March, 2003 and have killed over 100,000 Iraqis to this point.

This casualty figure is on top of the millions of Iraqis who had been slaughtered in the 13 years previous to the second Gulf War, not to mention the massive destruction of Iraq's infrastructure. Add to this the torture, murder, rape and desecration of Iraqi culture and you have a real nice formula for recruiting "terrorists". Insurgent violence has nothing to do with impending elections, as the administration would want Americans to accept this premise so they can show that these "terrorists" cannot stand the thought of democracy.

If Americans were in the place that Iraqis have been in these past 25 years, they would be fighting back right now I am sure. If they weren't, I don't see how they could call themselves Americans! After all that has been done to Iraqis by American forces, do you think for one moment that these people can actually trust us anymore?


 

Lazy Or Just Stupid?

http://www.wishtv.com/global/story.asp?s=1649813&ClientType=Printable"The first time Marion County's optical-scan machines were used in a general election, but it still took eight weeks to find out who won. “They're far more accurate because you don't have human beings making tallies,” said Doris Anne Sadler, Marion County clerk."

Is this lady serious of just plain stupid? Just how tough would it be for HUMAN committees represented by all competing political parties to count ballots cast in a certain precinct? It can't take that long! Even if the process would take a day or two, whatever tediousness is called for considering the importance of integrity in the results. Are people getting that lazy that computers have to do everything for us? One of these days at the rate we are going there will be a computer chip inserted in people to let them know when to visit the bathroom! Or maybe when to make love? This is getting just ridiculous!

Machines may be technically more accurate than human beings, but they are also open to tampering and cheating, which gives the operators of said machines the opportunity to change vote counts. Anyone who promotes electronic and/or machine voting these days certainly does not have the true meaning of democracy at heart. Our "democracy" has been run over by the "win at all cost" mentality.


 

Civil War Has Started

With the supercrime just committed by Bush Republican mafia. robbing the American public of their choice of leader, does anyone think for one moment that an American civil war is heating up and heading for a collision? Just stop and think why anyone would subvert the vote, and the answer that I come up with is desperation. If you know you are probably going to lose and you feel it absolutely necessary to win, you will do what it takes to insure victory.

It is without question that the election was stolen from the people. The people who stole this election took advantage of their cozy and profitable relationships with voting machine corporations and media. They also have a divided America to distract and block out their crimes. This divided America is on the boiling point of civil war in the streets, not just the minds. Funny thing is, if and when people start getting shot at, they probably won't even realize that they are acting on delusions that the government has planted in their heads.

Delusions that we were attacked by a foreign entity on September 11, 2001
Delusions that our very well-being depends on slaughtering innocent people on the other side of the planet.
Delusions that the person who disagrees with you and the government line is an enemy non-combatant.
Delusions that our leaders are there for the good of us Americans.
Delusions that Americans are the good guys.
Delusions that to always be afraid is to survive in this world.

There might be a civil war in the streets, but it will be nothing more than a cock fight for the rich and powerful. The winners of the peasant war will probably then sell their souls to the world's landlords. If and when those landlords want a letting of blood on American streets, they can get it. With the media in their hands, the perceptions of Americans are also in their hands. This is why Republicans and Democrats and all political parties have to try to come together as one and hammer out solutions to the most pressing problems that we face today. This shouldn't be done once every four years, but everyday 24/7! By the lack of dialogue between people we can only drift further apart until that time comes when we take up arms against each other simply because we haven't had an open dialogue.

Yes . . . the civil war never really stopped in this nation. Slavery and racism and discrimination have always been prevalent in this society. Rich have battled poor. Whites have battled blacks . . . and on and on. When will open honest dialogue, a prerequisite to any true democracy, replace the bigotry, ignornace and hate that keeps us all in a perpetual state of war?


 

Ignorance and Awareness In Polls

Current polls indicate about 56% of Americans think the Iraq war was not worth it. A more revealing poll should be taken to ascertain what percentage of people who think the Iraq war WAS worth it get their news off of the internet instead of the mainstream media. In fact, every percentage of every poll that reflects on American's attitudes and opinions concerning our government's policies and performances should be further queried thus- how many people on each side of the respondents' replies get their information from either mainstream media or the internet or whatever source is available to them(libraries, books, etc).

I would wage a bet that the totals would indicate the following-(some hypothetical examples)

Approve Bush policies and performances- a large majority of this group gets their news from mainstream media sources.
Disapprove Bush policies and performances- a large majority of this group gets their news from other sources.
Believe the government's version of 911- very large majority gets their news from mainstream media.
Does not believe government's version of 911- very large majority gets their news from other sources.

In short, those people NOT reliant on or duped by mainstream media propaganda, espousing the government's line in everything, are alot more aware and in a better position to make an INFORMED opinion when polled. Polling respondents on WHERE they get their news would reveal a gaping disparity between mainstream media users and alternative news users on each side of the poll's answers. It would add further light, also, on how polls taken in the United States are hampered by massive ignorance and misinformation about the issues.


 

Now Who's The Terrorist?

Tony Blair, visiting Baghdad today, reacted to the attack of a US military mess hall in Mosul, which killed 24 people-

"The attack came the same day that British Prime Minister Tony Blair made a surprise visit to Baghdad and described the ongoing violence in Iraq as a "battle between democracy and terror.""
http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/I/IRAQ?SITE=WFAA&SECTION=HOME

I suppose just about any nation that gets treated like Iraq has by the United States and Britain these past 14-15 years is going to be a great recruiting haven for "terrorists". It is funny how when the United States is attacked(even though 911 is a gigantic scam!) and responds with violence it is "retaliation". However, when Iraq is savagely attacked and the people respond, it is "terrorism". I really would like to see a poll to get an idea how Americans would respond to an occupying power that had killed over 100,000 civilians and raped and/or plundered those that survived. I think such a poll would show that many Americans WOULD take up arms to fight the occupier! This is not to condone violence, but it sure puts things in a better and more understandable perspective. If you open the door to violence, expect to pay the price!


 

Iraq Elections A Crock

The Bush administration treats the Iraq insurgency issue with the premise that insurgent attacks are meant to disrupt and cancel Iraqi elections scheduled for late January. This plays right into their stated reason for attacking Iraq in the first place, aside from all the other lies that were put before the American public, that we are there to overthrow a brutal tyrant and bring freedom and democracy to Iraq. As our own elections have attested to the past four years- "democracy" is just a word that carries admirable overtones to Americans, but the reality of real verified democracy is no where to be found. Voter suppression and fraud have become commonplace.

Does this administration and do Americans actually believe that Iraqis are concerned about national elections after all they have been put through these past 14 years? In fact, we can go back 24 years and include the Iran-Iraq War which was fueled and encouraged by United States support and arming of Iraq, killing millions of Iraqis and Iranians in the process. This was followed by Gulf War 1, then 13 years of brutal and murderous illegal sanctions against Iraq, and finally the March 2003 unjustified attack on Iraq which has led to over 100,000 more deaths and left the nation in a virtual shambles.

The Iraqi people are mostly aware of the duplicitous nature of American leaders and the empty promises of democracy that they offer. They know that Iraq, after any elections, will NOT be transformed into a nation ruled by one of their own with their interests foremost in mind. Any elected official will have to pass US inspection, meaning that ONLY a US puppet will be emplaced to "rule" the Iraqi people. What is the difference between this and occupation? I really don't know.

Using the now-accepted line that insurgent violence is trying to derail the "democratic" process of an Iraqi election in late January is only a smoke screen to hide the fact that most, if not all Iraqis, do NOT want the United States and its allies running their affairs, stealing their oil and killing, imprisoning and maiming them by the thousands. All they want is some security for their families, a job and a leader who can protect THEIR interests, not the interests of occupational forces. Dangling elections in front of the world as a central issue to the violence that we now see in Iraq is a cruel hoax. These elections will not be representative of Iraqis, and if they even had a chance to be, they will be manipulated in much the same way that our own elections have been, to the benefit of Bush's rich corporate backers!

How can Iraqis trust Americans to bring them fair elections after all they have suffered through by American hands? I don't see how they can!
