Surging toward the holy oil grail

"I see the imminent death of 20,000 men,
That, for a fantasy and trick of fame,
Go to their graves like beds ...
O, from this time forth,
My thoughts be bloody, or be nothing worth."
Hamlet, Act IV; according to White House spin part of reading-adverse President George W Bush's book list during the summer of 2006.

Democracy Decapitated In Iraq

For an excellent example of what the US government has created in Iraq, we need look no further than the gruesome hanging and "accidental" decapitation of two of Saddam Hussein's aides.

7/7 ringleader 'was watched since 2003'

The security services is bracing itself for further disclosures over Tube bombing intelligence failures

The 7 July bombers who killed 52 people in terrorist attacks in London in 2005 were once described by Britain's security service as 'clean skins'.

The vivid phrase implied that a gang of homegrown terrorists had come from nowhere, without an intelligence trail. But Dame Eliza Manningham-Buller, the director-general of MI5, is bracing herself for embarrassing revelations on the full extent of what the British intelligence community knew about the bombers, and in particular the ringleader of the attacks, Mohammad Sidique Khan. The disclosures will add to pressure for a full public inquiry.

Comment: The full extent of what MI5 knew about the "bombers" includes the "bombers" being MI5 dupes who did not in fact carry out the attacks but who were simply used as the fall-guys. The body of evidence available makes it very clear that the London bombings in July 2005 were the work of MI5 itself.

China Tells US Not to Interfere in Relations with Iran

A Chinese official says the United States should not interfere in China's relations with Iran. The comment came after the U.S. expressed concern about a Chinese oil company's plans to invest in an Iranian oil field, at a time when Tehran is defying the United Nations over Iran's nuclear program. Daniel Schearf reports for VOA from Beijing.

China's Foreign Ministry spokesman, Liu Jianchao, says China has every right to do business with Iran, and the U.S. has no right to comment on the two countries' dealings.

Crocodile Condi vs Baby Babs Boxer

I nearly snorted my herbal tea through my nose this morning when I read:
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Friday criticized Sen. Barbara Boxer's suggestion that because she doesn't have family in harm's way, she won't pay a personal price in the Iraq war.

"In retrospect, gee, I thought single women had come further than that, that the only question is are you making good decisions because you have kids," Rice said in an interview Friday on Fox News.

Condolizzard "Klingon" Rice Exudes Mother-Love

As you can see in the photo above, Condi is practiced at exuding Motherly Love in every nuanced look and gesture. She's holding out her hands for an infant... to devour, I guess. Crocodiles do it. That's her version of feminism.

Barbara Boxer made an interesting point when she highlighted the fact that Condolizzard Rice - since she has no children - has little to lose with her war-mongering for Israel. (Perhaps Condi imagines that Israel will reward her with the presidency if she is a loyal and faithful lizzard.)

Boxer and Rice have met before...

But oh, my, has the Zionist-controlled media had a field day with this one, rapaciously smearing and defaming Boxer.
"I spoke the truth at the committee hearing, which is that neither Secretary Rice nor I have family members that will pay the price for this escalation," she said. "My point was to focus attention on our military families who continue to sacrifice because this administration has not developed a political solution to the situation in Iraq."
What's interesting is that another story in the news may provide enlightening insight into the issue.

Ben Gurion's Scandals: How the Haganah and The Mossad eliminated Jews

Banned in Israel and the United States, Iraqi-born Jew Naeim Giladi's book is again available worldwide. Buy it from this website.

"After reading Mr. Giladi's devastating first-hand account of Zionist pillaging and massacres even of other Jews when necessary, it is not surprising that the book was banned,"states Carol Adler, president of Dandelion Books.

Giladi reports about the crimes committed by Zionists in their frenzy to import raw Jewish labor from the Middle East. Newly-vacated farmlands had to be plowed to provide food for the immigrants and the military ranks had to be filled with conscripts to defend the stolen lands.

States Giladi: "I write this book to tell the American people, and especially the American Jews, that Jews from Islamic lands did not emigrate willingly to Israel; that, to force them to leave, Jews killed Jews; and that, to buy time to confiscate ever more Arab lands, Jews on numerous occasions rejected genuine peace initiatives from their Arab neighbors.

MI5 told MPs day before 7/7 'no terrorism threat'

The head of MI5 told Labour MPs the day before London's 7 July bombings that there was no evidence of an imminent attack in Britain, it emerged today.

Dame Eliza Manningham-Buller gave the assurance at a private meeting of Labour whips at the Commons less than 24 hours before four explosions killed 52 people on Tube trains and a No 30 bus.

Comment: Three facts to ponder:

MI5 stated that there was no evidence of a planned attack just 24 hours before the London bombings

MI5 had been "watching" the alleged bombers for 3 months prior to the bombings

Within hours of the attacks MI5 stated that these were "suicide bombings" and that [Islamic] terrorists were to blame.

Top police officer says London has been in terrorists' sights

Thu Jul 8, 2004
AFP

LONDON - Britain's most senior police officer reiterated that London has been targeted by terrorists, and that "massive resources" are being deployed to head off an attack.

"London has been the target of unsuccessful terrorist attacks and a lot have been disrupted," Sir John Stevens, who is expected to retire later this year as the chief of London's Metropolitan Police, told BBC radio.

"We can't disclose to the people what we are doing covertly and even overtly," he explained.

But he added: "We, and the security services MI5 and MI6, are working incredibly hard, and there are massive resources that we're using (to ensure) that no one breaks through in a successful attack."

Besides day-to-day policing in the greater London area, the Metropolitan Police also takes the lead in investigating terrorist activity throughout Britain.

Stevens revealed last March, in the wake of the Madrid train bombings, that "we have actually stopped terrorist attacks happening in London," but gave no details.
Not to mention this:
Spies warned of Tube attack

David Leppard
The London Times
18 Dec 2005

Spymasters warned Tony Blair before the July 7 suicide bombings that Al-Qaeda (MI5) was planning a "high priority" attack specifically aimed at the London Tube.

A leaked four-page report by the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC), which oversees all spying, is the first definitive evidence that the intelligence services expected terrorists to strike at the Underground.

The disclosure will fuel critics' suspicions that Blair decided to rule out a public inquiry into the bombings last week because it could expose intelligence failings at the highest level.
Does anyone else feel like they are being lied to?

The Mossad in the CIA

It might be of public interest to know that a significant number of Israeli Mossad agents are now working in the United States as employees of the Central Intelligence Agency. These agents, some of whom are listed below, are initially paid by the Israeli Embassy in Washington but Israel then bills the U.S. Government for the salaries and is reimbursed in full on a monthly basis.

John Bolton, a notorious neocon warmonger who could not be confirmed as America's ambassador to the UN by even the compliant and corrupt U.S. Senate, got the job as a recess appointment. He is using the platform to push America into war with Iran.

Bolton told the Financial Times (June 9) that the Bush Regime has no intention of reaching an agreement with Iran. Time is running out for diplomacy, Bolton told the Financial Times. Iran has a short time remaining in which it can give up its right under the nonproliferation treaty to enrich uranium for nuclear energy or be attacked. Bolton said that U.S. security guarantees for Iran "were not on the table."

China: Power, corruption and lies

To the west, China is a waking economic giant, poised to dominate the world. But, argues Will Hutton in this extract from his new book, we have consistently exaggerated and misunderstood the threat - and the consequences could be grave
