US's Iraq oil grab is a done deal - Over the Bodies of half a million Iraqis

"By 2010 we will need [a further] 50 million barrels a day. The Middle East, with two-thirds of the oil and the lowest cost, is still where the prize lies." - US Vice President Dick Cheney, then Halliburton chief executive officer, London, autumn 1999

US President George W Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney might as well declare the Iraq war over and out. As far as they - and the humongous energy interests they defend - are concerned, only now is the mission really accomplished. More than half a trillion dollars spent and perhaps half a million Iraqis killed have come down to this.


Most Americans sorry Cheney survived - Where's a competent suicide bomber when you need one?

Some of Dick Cheney's many fierce enemies on the left were unable to withhold their glee today after the vice president escaped an apparent assassination attempt in Afghanistan.

Cheney was unharmed when a suicide bomber attacked the entrance to the main U.S. military base in Afghanistan where he spent the night, killing up to 23 people and wounding 20.

Media manipulation in action: How to disappear over 50,000 protesters

Last Saturday February 24th saw tens of thousands from all over the UK come together in a march organised jointly by Stop the War Coalition, Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and the British Muslim Initiative.

The number of attendees - 50-60,000 - was reduced to "hundreds" (spread across two cities) in the mainstream media. So here, for your viewing pleasure, are the few hundred who braved a "rainy" London to protest (see if you can spot the umbrellas).

AIPAC Demands "Action" on Iran

The Jewish Lobby

Former CIA counterterrorism specialist Philip Giraldi, comparing the propaganda campaign against Iran to that which preceded the war on Iraq, has recently declared, "It is absolutely parallel. They're using the same dance steps-demonize the bad guys, the pretext of diplomacy, keep out of negotiations, use proxies. It is Iraq redux." He's only one of many in his field (including Vincent Cannistraro, Ray McGovern, and Larry C. Johnson) doing their best to expose the Bush-Cheney neocon disinformation campaign according to which Iran is planning to produce nukes in order to commit genocide, while abetting terrorists in Iraq who are killing American troops.


"Insurgent" bombers slaughter Baghdad students - Probably a MOSSAD False Flag Op

Insurgents launched yet another deadly blitz across Baghdad on Sunday, killing at least 40 people in an attack on a business school and setting off a minibus bomb near the Iranian embassy.

A suicide bomber triggered his explosive vest outside the School of Economy and Administration in east Baghdad, where the students are mainly Shiites, the blast ripping through a crowd of young men and women.

Give Force a Chance - William Kristol, in Time Magazine

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier
"Many in the U.S. are now learning that democracy cannot be imposed by military force."

-- German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, speaking at an international security forum in Munich on Feb. 10
Is the U.S. too quick to project its power through military action? If only, writes neocon Bill Kristol

It's always good to be reminded by our German friends that democracy can't be imposed by military force. Perhaps the Japanese would like to weigh in too? Actually, they wouldn't. Living next door to nuclear-armed dictatorships, and not having succumbed as thoroughly to postmodern otherworldliness, the Japanese democracy is in fact building up its military and strengthening its U.S. alliance. Still, the German Foreign Minister was simply expressing, in a particularly un-self-reflective way, an increasingly common point of view on both sides of the Atlantic.

Comment: It is one thing for William Kristol to write editorials for the neocon house organ, The Weekly Standard, but that he is a regular talking head on the tube and an op-ed writer for Time, the nation's leading news weekly, is yet another of the countless examples of how thoroughly the Zionists dominate the US media and their cavalier willingness to shed the blood of others for their cause.
