Peace Pressure and 'Passover'




By now, anyone with two neurons still firing, has understood that "terrorist attacks" have long term benefits for the Israeli, British and American governments. It's not just the fact of a "terror attack" however that can be and is used to scare the public into accepting ever more authoritarianism from their leaders, but also the memory of "terror attacks".

Media Spin, Limited Hangout, and the Melting of the American Mind
2007-04-10

When political debate in the US lies between "Should Gonzales stay or go?" or "Should we send 30,000 more troops in Iraq or not?", with no mention of impeachment and jail time for the Bush gang, you know there's a problem. The Signs editors look at a recent editorial page in USA Today and are shocked at how far political discourse has deteriorated... and it takes a lot to shock us!

We spend a lot of time gathering the news from many sources here at SOTT. We go all over the world via the Internet to bring the news to our readers. Of course, you won't find much, if anything, from Fox News, and very little from sources like USA Today, the "national" newspaper in the US of A. We can't get Fox TV so we are spared the most outrageous of the propaganda and brainwashing.

Every once in awhile, however, a real newspaper from the axis of evil falls into our hands. So it happened that a couple of days ago, we came across the Easter weekend edition of USA Today. We were so astonished by the lies and subterfuges it contains that we were inspired to do a podcast.

The Body Snatchers



©Signs of the Times

"Look! You fools! You're in danger! Can't you see? They're after you! They're after all of us! Our wives...our children...they're here already! You're next!"

~Dr. Miles Bennell, The Invasion of the Body Snatchers
At the end of WW II, an American soldier stumbled into a bunker in Berlin where he found Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin and a lawyer. He only had two bullets; which two of the three tyrants did he shoot?

Answer: None, he shot the lawyer twice.

Is it just a bad joke or does it tell us something important about our society?

Two-Faced Tony Turns On Tehran




Release of Iranian Diplomat exposes US and British origin of Iraqi death squads and "sectarian" bombings

The 15 British Marines (who were in fact spying on Iran) were barely off the plane yesterday morning before Blair, Smeagol-like, turned on the Iranians and, with no evidence whatsoever, accused them of being responsible for the - timely from Blair's point of view - deaths of 4 British soldiers in Iraq.

Environment of Evil



Do we all have a Mr Hyde within?

There is much evil in the world. A large part of it seems to be centered in the United States, radiating out in its wars of conquest, its television shows, movies, and music, in the fascination with which the world follows the pointless excesses of its stars, in its politics and self-absorption and disdain for the rest of the world. The mythos of the Wild West and men with six-shooters settling arguments with a bullet at high noon before riding off to wipe out the Indians has congealed and hardened the hearts of its population to the reality of invasion and occupations eternally justified with noble slogans as vapid as they are preposterous.

Iranians Give The West A Lesson In Decency



Smiling British Marines leave Tehran on their way back home. US and British Prisoners in Iraq and Guantanamo Bay meet a different fate.

It doesn't get much better than this folks. With a smile, handshakes and a lesson in family values, a member of the "axis of evil" and alleged 21st century "Hitler" today destroyed years of hard work and scurrilous propaganda by the American, Israeli and British governments.

Wake Up And Smell The Cordite

'al-Badawi'. Do you recognise that name? Didn't think so. He's one of the people that the US government alleges carried out a suicide bomb attack on the USS Cole as it sat at a Yemeni harbor in 2000.

The official story goes that Badawi and his accomplices purchased a small boat, loaded it with 500lbs of explosives and some ready-made suicide bombers who then drove it alongside the Cole while it was docked and...Kaboom. To the left is a photo of the damage to the USS Cole.

Note the lack of blast damage to the ship around the hole that we are told was caused by 500lbs of conventional explosives. For some reason, that hole reminds me of a WWII movie? Hang on, it's coming back to me, yes, I can see it now, a white trail rocketing towards a ship, just below the surface of the water. Then an explosion at the water line and a relatively neat round hole in the hull. Yes indeed, military explosives are so very efficient. But no, my eyes must be deceiving me, it was a dingy-load of fertilizer that did it.

'Hostage Crisis' Or End Game?




Up until the 23rd March 2007, it seemed unlikely that the 'creative destructionists' (1) and 'reality-makers' in the Pentagon and Tel Aviv would get to "liberate" Iran in the way they have liberated 26 million Iraqis (1 million of them from their bodies).

The past 3 years of subtle and not-so-subtle slander and demonisation of the Iranian president and people by the American, British and Israeli governments and their media had been largely ineffective in further provoking the anti-Islamic ire of Joe six-pack. After all, with the US invasion of Iraq either a war crime or a quagmire (depending on your political perspective and depth of conscience) Bush's political capital account was seriously overdrawn, rendering the idea of extending the Middle East madness into an attack on Iran nothing but a Zionist pipe dream.

Or so it seemed.

Killing machine.

Having returned from Afghanistan in March of 2002, Sgt. 1st Class Rigoberto Nieves fatally shoots his wife then himself. Eighteen days later, on June 29, Master Sgt.

Ten days later, Sgt. 1st Class Brandon S. Floyd and his wife, Andrea, are found shot to death; another murder-suicide. All were stationed at Fort Bragg.

Hacking Democracy



©Hacking Democracy
A memory card that can be used to rig an election using voting computers.

What would you say if you went in to vote and found there was a man hidden behind a curtain in the voting booth. The man asks you who you want to vote for. You tell him, and he says that he has marked your ballot and put it into the ballot box. You never see the man nor see what he has marked on your ballot. You don't know if he is supporting your candidate, is against your candidate, or is neutral. You don't know if he has honestly recorded your vote or not.

Would you accept to vote under such conditions?

This is effectively what you are doing every time you vote using a computer.
