most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure
uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other
possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are
viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.
French owner blames terrorists for explosion, while Arab TV runs tape purporting to be al-Qa'ida leader. - In Paris, François Rivasseau, a spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, would only say that it was too early to be sure what had caused the explosion, but other unnamed government officials said France had strong indications the blast was caused by an attack. President Jacques Chirac was said to be following developments closely. - Another Euronav director, Jacques Moizan, pointed to the supertanker's double hull as a safeguard against all but the most deliberate attacks. "You can imagine the extreme high energy needed to open both hulls," he said.
Comment: Some of the readers might remember that the C's predicted a "faked" terrorist attack on French interests in order to engender support for the "Bush cause." Any French readers who can do so, please notify the owner of the vessel that it was predicted, and it was probably NOT Islamic terrorists or anyone connected with the terrorists blamed for the WTC attack. Also, the readers might remember that the C's also said that what was going to happen in the USA was "random shootings" to engender more terror. However, this is the activation of the HAARP system in an attempt to enforce more complete Mind Control "waves" on the US population. Naturally, those who are programmed by the alphabet soup guys to "go off," will do so under this influence.
The next item on the agenda, according to C's, is some sort of disease, likely an epidemic of a killing variety of Influenza. The C's say: "Do NOT - we repeat - do NOT take the flu shots. You might want to check out colloidal silver generators as well as supplements for protection of your health."
Let's list exactly what we really must forget if we are to support this madness. Most important of all, we absolutely must forget that President Ronald Reagan dispatched a special envoy to meet Saddam Hussein in December 1983. It's essential to forget this for three reasons. Firstly, because the awful Saddam was already using gas against the Iranians – which is one of the reasons we are now supposed to go to war with him.
Secondly, because the envoy was sent to Iraq to arrange the re-opening of the US embassy – in order to secure better trade and economic relations with the Butcher of Baghdad. Thirdly, because the envoy was – wait for it – Donald Rumsfeld. Now you might think it strange that Mr Rumsfeld, in the course of one of his folksy press conferences, hasn't chatted to us about this interesting tit-bit. You might think he would have wished to enlighten us about the evil nature of the criminal with whom he so warmly shook hands. But no.
Strangely, Mr Rumsfeld is silent about this. As he is about his subsequent and equally friendly meeting with Tariq Aziz – which just happened to take place on the day in March, 1984, that the UN released its damning report on Saddam's use of poison gas against Iran. The American media are silent about this too, of course. Because we must forget.
We must forget, too, that in 1988, as Saddam destroyed the people of Halabja with gas, along with tens of thousands of other Kurds – when he "used gas against his own people" in the words of Messrs Bush/Cheney/Blair/Cook/Straw et al –President Bush senior provided him with $500m in US government subsidies to buy American farm products. We must forget that in the following year, after Saddam's genocide was complete, President Bush senior doubled this subsidy to $1bn, along with germ seed for anthrax, helicopters, and the notorious "dual-use" material that could be used for chemical and biological weapons.
And of course, we must forget about oil. Indeed, oil is the one commodity – and one of the few things which George Bush junior knows something about, along with his ex-oil cronies Cheney and Rice and countless others in the administration – which is never mentioned.
We've got to fight "nuclear holy warriors". That's what we have to do to justify the whole charade through which we are being taken now by the White House, by Downing Street, by all the decaying "experts" on terrorism and, alas, far too many journalists.- Forget the 14 Palestinians, including the 12-year-old child, killed by Israel a few hours before Mr Bush spoke, forget that when his aircraft killed nine Palestinian children in July, along with one militant, the Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon – a "man of peace" in Mr Bush's words – described the slaughter as "a great success". Israel is on our side.
Remember to use the word "terror". Use it about Saddam Hussein, use it about Osama bin Laden, use it about Yasser Arafat, use it about anyone who opposes Israel or America. Bush used it in his speech yesterday, 30 times in half an hour – that's one "terrorism" a minute.
Dubya sez: "while there are many dangers in the world, the threat from Iraq gathered together the most serious dangers of our age in one place". Because of its record, its capabilities and the "merciless" nature of its regime, "Iraq is unique".
Comment from Quantum School: The depth of deceit and the sheer lack of shame that Bush shows in declaring the above is staggering, even if we could ignore the fact that there are many other equally oppressive regimes around the world (many of them set up by the CIA) and if we somehow are able to blind ourselves to the fact that Bush has been utterly unable to provide any proof for allegations of Saddams weapons of mass destruction, and even goes so far as to block inspectors from entering Iraq (because he knows they will find no evidence to support his claims), there remains one other question: Why now George? What new "mercilessness" has Saddam embarked upon now that warrants his annilhilation, that he was not doing during all those years since the gulf war?
Tell us George. All we want is a simple answer, a simple fact, a single piece of evidence that will back up even ONE of the claims you make?
It seems Dubya is banking on the US and the rest of the world's people being too stupid to even demand the facts. He seems to think that simply by stirring the emotional pot with words and phrases such as "mercilessness" and "axis of evil" he will get the public (and political) support he craves. The question is, is he gonna be proven right? To me, it seems like George has got it right, and we may never get to know what would have happened if people had simply stood up and called a spade a spade, or a liar a liar.
Raid on US marines puts question mark over friendly Kuwait - The two attackers, both wearing civilian clothes, were reportedly shot dead by US marines after the killings, although the exact circumstances of the shooting remained unclear yesterday. The fact that the two dead killers were Kuwaitis, is serious news for the Emir and the crown prince, whose countrymen have never shown any hostility to the United States since the 1991 Gulf War.
Another Meteor Spotted Monday Night - A fireball shot through the Colorado sky Monday evening for the second consecutive night at nearly the same time. - The Cloudbait Observatory Web site reports that the Rocky Mountain region "has experienced a very unusual burst of fireball activity." - The observatory received a total of 560 reports of Sunday night's fireball from seven states. - Preliminary analysis of witness reports suggests the Sunday fireball was a meteor that may have exploded 10 to 20 miles above eastern Utah or western Colorado, said Peterson, a member of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science meteorite investigation team.
October 7, 2002 - A burning object seen streaking across West Midlands UK skies on Sunday morning may have been a meteor, astronomers have said. Its passage was followed by a bright flash which lit up the sky. - It has been an eventful period for the West Midlands in nature terms, with the region shaken by an earth tremor on 23 September. Comment: A member of our research team points out that things are getting just a BIT weird.... Have a look at the following:
Friday, 13 September 2002 - falling meteorite Friday night -Colorado, Wyoming or Nebraska
Wednesday 18 September 2002 - A suspected meteorite crashed in a ball of fire in Sri Lanka, burning down trees and scattering particles over a celebrated giant rock, officials and scientists said yesterday.
Thursday 03 October 2002- Large Meteorite Falls on the Irkutsk Region -Residents of the town of Bodaibo in the Irkutsk region witnessed the fall of a large celestial body. Scientists suggest that it might have been a meteorite. This was reported by the regional department of the Russian EMERCOM. They added that they received the information from the Institute of Solar and Earth Physics of the Siberian division of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
And now another one on October 6? And then this?
Asteroids regularly explode over the Earth with the intensity of a nuclear bomb; the explosions could be mistaken for a nuclear attack and even trigger an atomic war, an Air Force general said Thursday. - At least 30 times a year, a space rock measuring a few yards across slashes into the atmosphere and explodes, releasing energy equal to that of an atomic bomb, Air Force Brig. Gen. Simon Worden told subcommittee members. Comment: Makes ya wonder what they are preparing us for... What do they know that we don't know? Since when does this happen "30 times a year?" When is the last time you heard of it happening that often? See also: While astronomers scan the skies for killer asteroids, smaller cosmic boulders pose a greater overall risk and could even spark a nuclear conflict, space and military representatives told a congressional hearing Thursday. Sounds to us like the shower of Comets predicted by the C's for the past eight years is showing up on schedule. And, if they are right, it's gonna get a LOT Worse. Keep in mind Bush is acting like a "driven" man. Our guess is that he is simply an Organic Portal running a program. Keep the following in mind:
Comets heralded the Coming of the Cassiopaeans: From Amazing Grace:
Florida got a glimpse of a different Jeb Bush this week. And the unscripted revelations of an agenda he had not publicly shared with voters could haunt him for the remaining weeks of the campaign. - ``I'm astonished by the arrogance of the governor,'' said David Niven, a political science professor at Florida Atlantic University reacting to audio clips and newspaper reports of a private meeting Bush had with lawmakers this week. ``This may define the final month of the campaign.'' Bush said he was unaware a Gannett News Service reporter was present with tape recorder in hand during a Wednesday meeting at the Capitol with Pensacola lawmakers.
It's bad enough that Gov. Jeb Bush would snicker like a homophobic school boy while discussing an ongoing tragedy as thoroughly humorless as the one involving still-missing foster child Rilya Wilson. But Bush's excuse -- that he didn't know a reporter was present in a meeting he considered private -- only made the episode worse. - The Rilya Wilson tale is sad enough without Bush trivializing it with innuendo. Rilya's sixth birthday came and went last Sunday, with investigators evidently no closer to solving the mystery of her disappearance. Carolyn Roberts - a Bush appointee to the state Board of Education and chairwoman of the political committee created to protect his education overhaul. ``I've never seen anything devious about Jeb Bush,'' she said. ``It just isn't in his nature. He's a perfect representative of government in the sunshine.''
Reader comments on Jeb Bush: Huh? If they think that platitudes like this will excuse a gaffe like that, I'm in the wrong business. Now if the media will do their duty, the public might begin to realize just what this Bush family is all about. Let's see what Dubya brings to bear to cover this up. He's gonna need a "sure thing" in Florida, again, in 2004. Sure would be a shame to see Jeb buried in a landslide, eh?
Noelle Bush's attorneys have asked a judge to bar the public from court hearings on their client's drug treatment, saying media attention violates her right to privacy, according to court records. - Bush was arrested for allegedly buying an anti-anxiety drug with a fraudulent prescription at a Tallahassee pharmacy.
October 6, 2002 - Congressional leaders said Sunday a resolution authorizing war against Iraq, expected to pass with little dissent. Comment: Last chance. Call or FAX your rep and demand they just say "no" to Bush. We've been told that Congressional reps figure that every person who calls or FAXes, 1000 people agree. So your call or FAX has the power of a 1000 constituents...
A solid majority of Americans believe President Bush should give U.N. weapons inspectors time to act and should wait for support from allies before invading Iraq, a new poll says. - The CBS-New York Times poll out Sunday also found a large and growing number of people want Bush to get congressional approval before going to war, with many saying Congress has not asked enough questions about Bush's policy toward Iraq. Comment: Apparently the word is spreading, so no time to rest... keep pushing those phone buttons and keep sending those FAXes and keep signing those petitions...
Watch an animated image of President Bush pushing a wheelchair-bound individual off a cliff. Not once, but twice.
The Bush Administration plans to appoint a scantily credentialed doctor, whose writings include a book titled As Jesus Cared for Women: Restoring Women Then and Now, to head an influential Food and Drug Administration (FDA) panel on women's health policy. Sources tell Time that the agency's choice for the advisory panel is Dr. W. David Hager, an obstetrician-gynecologist who also wrote, with his wife Linda, Stress and the Woman's Body, which puts "an emphasis on the restorative power of Jesus Christ in one's life" and recommends specific Scripture readings and prayers for such ailments as headaches and premenstrual syndrome. Comment: For a Satanist Bonesman, Bush is really pushing for that Fundie vote, isn't he?
Anti-war activists march to protest the Bush administrations stance on Iraq Sunday, Oct. 6, 2002 in Los Angeles, Calif. The protesters started the day by rallying outside the Federal Building in Los Angeles.

Iraqi President Saddam Hussein said on Sunday his country would be victorious in any showdown. Saddam also attacked Washington's drive for a tough new United Nations resolution against Iraq, saying it was an attempt to cover up its "lie" about Baghdad's weapons program. "We did not choose the battle with the enemy and this means we did not prepare ourselves to confront the enemy but the enemy is preparing itself to attack us...and leave us as slaves without identity, honor or money," Saddam was quoted by the Iraqi News Agency (INA) as saying.
U.S. was a key supplier to Saddam - With White House approval, U.S. officials -- acting in our name -- continued to supply Saddam Hussein with biochemical warfare ingredients until after the Gulf War. But digging deeper into my stacks of source material on the murky matter, and after further discussions with several scientific sources of mine, there's some confusion as to when we actually stopped sending this deadly commerce.
Thousands march in Italy against Iraq war - anti-war demonstrators took to the streets of Rome and several other major Italian cities including Milan, Bologna, Venice and Florence to protest US plans for war on Iraq.

Canada doesn't believe Saddam Hussein must be removed from power, Foreign Affairs Minister Bill Graham said Friday. - short of a world government, countries cannot accept "that if we don't like someone or we have problems with them, that it's legitimate to have a regime changed," he said. Comment: Guess what? Bush is after a One World Government - with himself as DICTATOR.
So you want to have a war? Read the stories from those who were there: **Poland September 1, 1939. In 25 days German armies overran Poland In 9 months, virtually all of Western Europe. Dr. Jurian Kolsky grew up in Warsaw I was 10 years old and I was playing with my friends in the woods. We were picking mushrooms. I heard a tremendous noise and trees started bending We saw these huge planes with black markers I knew the war had started ...
**Adolph Hitler's objective was Lebensraum, living space vast enough for German for the Third Reich. Henry Metaleman was a German soldier We thought it was great which no one had really experienced before, to go an occupied country as a soldier you were the master of that country we believed. Hitler's goal was to enslave Slavic people of Eastern Europe, a people he regarded as racially inferior. In Poland his commanders ordered executions of the nobility, government officials, priests and teachers. (Dr. Julian Kolsky) Nobody expected that the war would be against the civilians. I saw my family and my friends and on a daily base being murdered on streets and shot. They made it very clear that we were slaves, and we were below a human being as they called us UNTERMENSCH.
**When people died they were put on a street, all the identification was taken away from them because then the family could get their rations and maybe they could exist a day longer. It was a horrible situation You would be surprised at what you can get used to.
**When they encircled the old capital Leningrad, Hitler ordered his commanders to wipe the city and 3 million people off the face of the earth. No surrender would be accepted, even if offered. Bombed and shelled daily, civilians helped to defend the city by digging trenches and building shelters But they faced another enemy----?????the coldest winter in 30 years. There was no light, no heat, no fuel, no food. We received 125 grams of bread ,the bread made of I don't know what but not flour, it was so delicious for us. We divided that small piece into 3 parts. - A half the city of Leningrad's population perished during the siege But the city never surrendered, the Russians held out for 3 winters, 900 days. People said, oh you see such terrible things are forgotten with time. No they cannot be forgotten. Never.
**I was billeted in a house. There was a girl called Anna I was young and 19 years old and I fell in love with Anna But the thought was they were the second- rate human beings... But to me Anna was not only beautiful She was a valuable human being. The Confusion, utter confusion in my mind what was going on You know I want to destroy everything we want to be their masters. It was unconsciously the beginning of the realization that I was involved with something horrible.
**We were given a series of speeches that you were to move in. Be Ruthless, be tough and we are the master race. This is a preemptive strike that you were to kill those who have a potential to be a danger to German occupation. The first thing they did was to give an order that all men, all Jewish men between 16 and 60 should report to the center of town. And then later on, I heard shots, 400 they shot at a day, their job was come in and do what they did and go to the next town do the same thing.
**Bedraggled people after four years of almost all occupation, starved people, uh, people locked within a very narrow perimeter, and yet they went against a German army which at that time it was very victorious and still strong. We fought not because we knew that we were going to win, but also we would like to make a statement. The uprising lasted a month. And then the German troops burned the ghetto block by block Survivors were killed on the spot or sent to concentration camps.
**We were made to believe that we would be working, we were to be put in work camps. So we walked to the train station and instead to the passenger cars we realized it was a cattle car. By then all the illusions passed when the doors were shut They were locked. - There was no water to wash and there was no toilet facility. - We spent five days and five nights in these cattle cars Then several people died right in the cattle car and could not take it . Put them in a corner. The stink was unbelievable, excrement, urine, death, hunger, the fear, the uncertainty. If they treat us like this where are we going to be going? Then we arrived that place, somebody saw through the slit, Auschwitzen, Auschwitz.
**They shaved our heads And my mother was standing next to me When I looked at her, I didn't recognize her, she looked like an animal. And she looked at me and I could see her eyes, you know the pain of seeing me. And then that's when we lost everything, really, our pride, just everything. We became practically animals fighting for our life.
America, the above descriptions are just a tiny view of what is going to happen HERE. George Bush is going to trigger Armageddon, only it isn't going to be "over there."
The stealthy "Bugbear" worm continued on a ravenous digital path this week, prompting anti-virus firms to escalate warnings from moderate to high and leaving thousands of computers worldwide at the mercy of hackers.
October 5, 2002 - Large Meteorite Falls on the Irkutsk Region -Residents of the town of Bodaibo in the Irkutsk region witnessed the fall of a large celestial body. Scientists suggest that it might have been a meteorite. This was reported by the regional department of the Russian EMERCOM.

The World Trade Center Demolition and the So-Called War on Terrorism - Why of course the people don't want war ... But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ... Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. — Hermann Goering, Nazi leader, at the Nuremberg Trials after World War II
