How will you behave in your last battle?

We sold our souls for the trinkets — the best wine, women and song. And while we were out capturing jewels, our most valuable possessions — the kids — ran off with their peers, got mixed in with the masses and got chewed up in our scams. Chickens roosting. We kill our children and deny we do it.

We let our kids go out to play, knowing the land had been poisoned by our inattention to the important things.

Now we raise our kids to be killed for lies, and squirm in the dark chasms beneath our pillows, dreaming the bills have come due. They have.

Are you brainwashed? What about some of your neighbours, are they brainwashed? Before you answer that, let us ask you a few preliminary questions: Do you believe that the United States was struck by a terrorist attack on Sept. 11? Do think that the people behind that attack were “Arabs” and that its “mastermind” was this fellow Osama bin Laden, operating from a cave in Afghanistan? Do you believe that the way to stop terrorism is to hit them hard, to hit them at their “bases” in such places as Afghanistan, and to hit the nations who might sponsor them, like, say Iraq?

'Morphing' the Enemy Image

Take a close look at the image of Osama bin Laden, as it appears on the television screens, in this time of a new “war.” In psyops terms, bin Laden has become the image of the enemy--the picture that a targeted population keeps in mind as the person, or, specifically, the type of person it is fighting. There is the swarthy complexion, the beard, the burnoose, the weapons in hand--it is all there, all as expected, an ideal subject for the projected rage and hatred of an injured nation. No matter that bin Laden is not really the “evil mastermind.”

The spin of the New York Times to explain its deplorable coverage leading to the war in Iraq is the usual anti-conspiracy remedy of claiming stupidity. The publisher, editors and, in particular, Judith Miller, were all completely taken in by liars such as Chalabi, Curveball, al-Libi and Cheney, and, despite all appearances to the contrary, were definitely not engaged in a treasonous criminal conspiracy to fool the American people into illegally attacking a sovereign foreign country for no good reason at all. Morons, idiots, fools - but definitely not liars.

It is now coming out that the spin is itself a lie, and that the Times had information contradicting Miller's lies before she published them. There is no way around it: the New York Times was engaged in a treasonous criminal conspiracy which invoved lying to its readers. They knew, and they lied.

By the way, every single media outlet in the United States, and every single journalist (except for a handful including Hersh, Pincus, the Knight Ridder guys, and Jay Bookman), participated in the lies, either actively or by simply doing nothing as the obvious fables were broadcast or published. Ignorance is no excuse, as the bloggers were all over these lies right from the beginning. Where are the apologies for all this apalling lying?

A car bomb detonated outside a hospital in the centre of a town south of Baghdad today, killing 30 and wounding 35.

Among the dead were four police guards, three women and two children, said Dr Dawoud al-Taie, the director of the Mahmoudiya hospital.

Iraqi army Capt. Ibrahim Abdeallah said the suicide bomber was targeting US military vehicles parked near the hospital in Mahmoudiya, about 20 miles south of Baghdad. He said US troops sealed off the scene and there was no damage to the US vehicles.There were no immediate reports of US casualties.

Mahmoudiya is a religiously-mixed town in the so-called triangle of death, a region known for attacks on coalition forces and Shiites moving through the area to visit shrines south of the region.

Comment: You would think that, by this stage, Iraqi insurgents would have the wherewithal to at least get their "suicide bombs" within effective range of their US military enemy. But it seems that this is not the case, if we are to believe the military reports coming out of Iraq. In this case, you would think that these Iraqi insurgents would cease their "suicide" bombing campagin until they could be reasonably sure that they would not kill and maim their own people rather than enemy troops. Apparently this is not the case either, however. So what do we make of it? Are the insurgents just periodically incredibly incompetent? Do they actually want to kill Iraqi civilians, including children?

Thankfully, there is another explanation, and it is one that makes much more sense when you are aware of the standard operating procedures of U.S., British and Israeli intelligence agencies: The bombings like the one described in the article above are neither suicidal nor insurgent. Rather, they are the work of the aforementioned intelligence agencies and their hired mercenaries whose job it is to pit Iraqi against Iraqi, or rather, Sunni against Sh'ite in a bid to better control the Iraqi people.

“The Mossad trained the Ecuadorean police in torture techniques between 1986 and 1994,” said Alexis Ponce during the Axis for Peace international conference, organized by Voltaire Network on November 17-18, 2005, in Brussels.

“The Israeli secret services gave technical support to the tyranny that stained Ecuador with blood. The police corps received advanced training by Israeli agents to torture and to force those who opposed the tyranny to speak. The Israeli agents transmitted their knowledge about the numerous techniques used to torture people. They are criminals!

"Hundreds of people disappeared during those dark years."

Leader of the APDHE, an important organization for the defense of human rights, Alexis Ponce caused a scandal in 1996 when he published The Witness, a book widely spread in Ecuador that presented the testimony of policeman Hugo España, whose work consisted of torturing and disappearing political opponents.

Tormented by his conscience, he spoke to Alexis Ponce and then they decided to explain in detail the techniques that the Ecuadorian police had learned from the Mossad. Hugo España had to go into exile after the publication of his testimony and today he has to live hidden.

For the last few days we have been reading some flattering reports concerning the latest political moves of Sharon undertaken in his newly born peace loving persona. Sharon, a notorious war criminal, a man who has managed to prove time after time that he is totally lacking in any sense of moral guard or ethical consideration, has now managed to convince the Western media that he is the Israeli ‘voice of responsibility’. Make no mistake, Sharon and the Israeli people are indeed devoted ‘peace’ lovers, yet, it is rather critically important to mention that the Israeli notion of peace is pretty remote from any notion of peace familiar to the rest of humanity. When we think of the Hebrew word for peace we traditionally refer to the word ‘Shalom’. But apparently, shalom and peace aren’t exactly the same. In fact they are very different. While shalom refers to the freedom from conflict while achieving a general sense of security, peace has a far broader meaning. Peace is a true resolution. Peace is the search for harmony between people. Peace is all about reconciliation.

Under cover of the Israeli withdrawal propaganda from the Gaza settlements, which the International Media is reporting day and night, and under the unlimited U.S support for the Jewish State, the Israeli government continues robbing the Palestinian lands in the West Bank cities to increase the Jewish settlements. Hundreds of Jewish squatter families who will evacuate from Gaza are going to live in the West Bank settlements. It's a win-win game for these squatters, they will get new homes on stolen Palestinian lands in the West bank, and they will get an estimated US$ 500.000,- of American tax money each.

MOSCOW -- Russia's parliament is expected to approve legislation today that would shut down foreign-funded human rights and pro-democracy groups while tightening controls over domestic civic organizations.

The legislation, endorsed by President Vladimir Putin's Cabinet and co-sponsored by his United Russia party, would bar international NGOs from operating offices in Russia and require the country's 450,000 NGOs to re-register with the state. Russian NGOs also would have to show that they do not receive foreign funding for "political activities," which critics say could be interpreted to mean almost any activity.

Supporters say the bill is designed to prevent foreign interests from interfering in Russian society. Mr. Putin and other officials have accused internationally funded NGOs of being a "fifth column" that seeks to destabilize Russia by creating an opposition movement like those that started Ukraine's Orange Revolution and Georgia's Rose Revolution.

"The purpose of this foreign funding is to undermine the Russian state and attempt to produce another Orange Revolution in the post-Soviet space," said Alexei Ostrovsky, a parliamentarian with the Liberal Democratic Party and one of the bill's sponsors. [...]

MOSCOW - A group of nationalist Russian lawmakers called Monday for a sweeping investigation aimed at outlawing all Jewish organizations and punishing officials who support them, accusing Jews of fomenting ethnic hatred and saying they provoke anti-Semitism.

In a letter dated Jan. 13, about 20 members of the lower house of parliament, the State Duma, asked Prosecutor General Vladimir Ustinov to investigate their claims and to launch proceedings "on the prohibition in our country of all religious and ethnic Jewish organizations as extremist."

Comment: The letter stated that: "the United States "has become an instrument for achieving the global aims of Judaism."

Are they right?

The Global Anti-Semitism Awareness Act of 2004, passed into law by Bush in October 2004, essentially makes the US and its military the keeper and defender of Israel and would seem to bear out the idea expressed by the Russian lawmakers.

Following a week in which TV and newspapers reported the US military’s illegal use of chemical weapons in Iraq, and the employment by the US-backed Iraqi government of torture chambers and paramilitary death squads, one might be forgiven for thinking that the media is carrying out the essential task of relaying the information necessary for us to be able to assess our government’s policies. In fact, it is the media’s near total failure to report on the bloodshed caused by our side in the ongoing conflict that keeps many current US-UK government officials in their jobs, if not out of the International Criminal Court on charges of committing war crimes. The reality is that gruesome atrocities continue to be committed by the occupying powers in Iraq, and that these pass with little or no mention in the mainstream media on either side of the Atlantic. As such the media are accessories to these crimes, standing as they do between the criminals and accountability.

On Tuesday, Britain's Daily Mirror published an explosive story riddled with implications concerning the character and intent of the US president when pursuing his so-called 'war on terror', and perhaps, shedding light on the bombing of Al Jazeera's offices in both Kabul and Baghdad.

Click to Expand Article
Comment: It is easy to believe this story. It is completely within the psychopathic character of the American president to want to wipe Al Jareeza off the face of the map. The previous attacks on Al Jazeera offices certainly lend credenace to this story.

In a world of lies within lies, however, it is worth it to take some time and try and see through the story. It is possible that the memo is not true, but that it is being circulated for other purposes. What might those be?

We know that Al Jazeera is in Qatar, a country closely allied to the US. Al Jazeera is also often the source of the famous Osama tapes, the ones that promote the image of Al Qaeda as a ferocious and dangerous threat to the West. Well, we know that it is not the case that Al Qaeda is such a danger. The danger is the US and Israel. To the extent that Al Jazeera is fanning the flames of the neocon clash of civilizations, it is part of the problem.

This is not to say that there is no good journalism coming out of the channel. Good disinformation mixes the good with the bad, good journalism with propaganda. It is the good stuff that legitimises the bad stuff, allows it to slip through one's critical radar.

We do not know one way or another. It would be interesting to do a content analysis of Al Jazeera reporting on Osama and Al Qaeda and al Zarqawi and Iraq and see to what extent they put into question the myths promoted in the West about these two arch-villains. The devil is in the details, and it is the details that will help us understand what is info and what is disinfo in the war that is being waged for the hearts and minds of people the world over.

PARIS, Nov 24 (AFP) - French lawmakers on Thursday backed government plans to allow greatly increased video-surveillance of public places, a key provision of a new anti-terrorism bill drawn up following the London transport bombings.

Click to Expand Article
Comment: Sarkozy wants to drag France into the War on Terror. So far the French have done their best to resist. The defeat of the consitution referendum in May was an irritant and the London bombings the excuse. We shouldn't be surprised that France was hit by riots shortly thereafter, nor that the polls were quite possibly rigged to show an increase in popularity for the Interior Minister in the days following.

Sarkozy is the beach head for American ideas in France. He would turn France on its head if given the opportunity.

As Gywnn Dyer put it in an article on yesterday's Signs page, the riots weren't about religion, it wasn't Muslim youth against Christian France. It was disenfranchised youth -- Muslim, Christian and other -- against a society that has done nothing to help them find their place.

Sarko, however, will put the spin he wishes on these events.

The US yesterday threatened to block a record-breaking arms deal under which Spain would sell ships and aircraft to Venezuela, in another sign of increasingly fraught relations between the Bush administration and the Venezuelan president, Hugo Chávez.

The US claimed that a €1.3bn (£890m) arms deal with Mr Chávez, who is a vocal supporter of Cuba's Fidel Castro and a fierce critic of the Bush administration, could destabilise the region. The deal, due to be signed in Caracas on Monday, includes four coastal patrol ships, four corvettes, 10 C-295 transport planes and two maritime surveillance planes. It would be a massive boost to Spain's ailing shipyard industry and to the rest of its defence industry.

Click to Expand Article
Comment: Time and again Chavez has proven that his claims that he actually cares for the people that elected him are not just words. The Bush administration, on the other hand, has proven beyond any doubt that it cares little about the welfare of ordinary Americans, particularly poor ordinary Americans. Given the massive profits posted by the major U.S. oil companies this year, it is truly a disgrace and evidence of contemptous neglect by the US government that any Americans should find themselve unable to afford heating oil this winter. As Joe Kennedy, the chairman of Citizens Energy, one of the organisations that will distribute the oil, said:
"Our federal government has made billions and billions of dollars just this year on the royalty payments the oil companies pay to the government," he said. But when it is a question of poor Americans, he said, "What do we hear from Washington? Sorry boys. There's no money in the till."

Of course, it is equally disgusting that hundreds of millions of civilians around the world have died from starvation or have been killed in war or at the hands of a tyrannical government as a result of the deliberate policies of American and Western governments over the course of the past 100 years.

Most news outlets are claiming that Chavez's offer of cheap oil is an embarrassment to the Bush government, yet it would appear that most members of the Bush government do not, or cannot, feel embarrassment about neglecting the welfare of American citizens or the fact that a foreign country is actually providing essential services to a portion of the American population. For Bush and Co., the poor are to be neglected as a matter of course and good government practice, regardless of the country in which they live.

This would seem to be at least one reason for the threatened U.S. blocking of the Spanish arms sales to Venezuela. Through the use of Venezuela's oil resources, Chavez is attempting to help the Venezuelan people, particularly the poor, and to protect them from the far from benevolent intentions of the war-lovers in Washington and the Pentagon.

Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and the Neocons all hate Chavez for helping the poor because, like all pyshcopaths or narcissists, they cannot bear the existence of anything that does not reinforce their own carefully crafted "mask of sanity". The American government goes to great lengths to create the image of itself as the upholder of everything that is "free" and "Democratic" and "good", yet in one simple act, Chazez tears down the facade and shows the Bush administration for the uncaring and self-centered monolith that it is.

From the point of view of the policy planners in Washington then, Chavez threatens the ability of the Bush government to continue to deceive the American people and the world about their real intentions and therefore must be destroyed in any way possible.

The Carteret Islands are almost invisible on a map of the South Pacific, but the horseshoe scattering of atolls is on the front-line of climate change, as rising sea levels and storm surges eat away at their existence. For 20 years, the 2,000 islanders have fought a losing battle against the ocean, building sea walls and trying to plant mangroves.

Each year, the waves surge in, destroying vegetable gardens, washing away homes and poisoning freshwater supplies. Papua New Guinea's Carteret islanders are destined to become some of the world's first climate change refugees. Their islands are becoming uninhabitable, and may disappear below the waves.

NEW! 9/11: The Ultimate Truth is Now Available!

On the fourth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Laura Knight-Jadczyk announced the availability of her latest book:

In the years since the 9/11 attacks, dozens of books have sought to explore the truth behind the official version of events that day - yet to date, none of these publications has provided a satisfactory answer as to WHY the attacks occurred and who was ultimately responsible for carrying them out.

Taking a broad, millennia-long perspective, Laura Knight-Jadczyk's 9/11: The Ultimate Truth uncovers the true nature of the ruling elite on our planet and presents new and ground-breaking insights into just how the 9/11 attacks played out.

9/11: The Ultimate Truth makes a strong case for the idea that September 11, 2001 marked the moment when our planet entered the final phase of a diabolical plan that has been many, many years in the making. It is a plan developed and nurtured by successive generations of ruthless individuals who relentlessly exploit the negative aspects of basic human nature to entrap humanity as a whole in endless wars and suffering in order to keep us confused and distracted to the reality of the man behind the curtain.

Drawing on historical and genealogical sources, Knight-Jadczyk eloquently links the 9/11 event to the modern-day Israeli-Palestinian conflict. She also cites the clear evidence that our planet undergoes periodic natural cataclysms, a cycle that has arguably brought humanity to the brink of destruction in the present day.

For its no nonsense style in cutting to the core of the issue and its sheer audacity in refusing to be swayed or distracted by the morass of disinformation that has been employed by the Powers that Be to cover their tracks, 9/11: The Ultimate Truth can rightly claim to be THE definitive book on 9/11 - and what that fateful day's true implications are for the future of mankind.
