The show must go on
Justice at last! Saddam Hussein was convicted and sentenced to hang. From Washington to London the wolves are howling. Freedom! Freedom! Democracy! Democracy! The butchers and the whores are banqueting with the blood of the Iraqi children. Three million Iraqis have fled Iraq in the past three years. More than 650,000 have been killed in this war of liberation. The price was worth it, the butchers and the whores are howling. Freedom! Freedom! Democracy! Democracy! (…) Celebrated in that notorious bordello called “the green zone”, the Saddam Hussein “trial” brings the international community all the way back to the pre-Nuremberg era. It deletes the last 60 years of international law and restores the “legality” of committing the “supreme international crime” by the most barbarian death machine in human history: Corporate America. That show-trial (where everything was a surprise except the verdict) has been a dirty smokescreen to cover the monstrosity of this scandal happening before our eyes; the illegal invasion, occupation and annihilation of a sovereign and defenseless country. Butchers, clowns and whores have directed a miserable pornographic show against the legitimate president of Iraq while their masters have been plundering the country. In the dock Saddam Hussein was Iraq and Iraq was Saddam Hussein…
`WARLIKE POLICIES BASED ON THE POLITICS OF FEAR’ – The lie that is `islamofascism’
President George Bush, along with other neoconservatives in the US, has adopted the term “islamofascist” to imply that a wide range of organisations are the 21st-century successors of Nazism and communism. This is not only inaccurate, it is deliberately intended to promote the idea of preventive wars.
The use of such a crude term as “Islamic fascism” could be ignored if the words had not been used publicly by President George Bush in a press conference this August, and then repeated in statements by other United States officials, to imply that such widely differing movements as al-Qaida, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and Hizbullah were the successors of Nazism and communism. Renaming the “war on terror” as the “war on Islamic fascism” was meant to place Muslim fundamentalist movements among the totalitarian enterprises of the 20th century. It was no innocent play on words, but rather designed to legitimise warlike policies based on crude analogies and the politics of fear.
For Evangelicals, Supporting Israel Is ‘God’s Foreign Policy’
“Kill ‘em all, let God sort them out.”
Lebanon Muslims outnumber Christians 2 to 1
According to the survey, published in the independent An Nahar newspaper, Lebanon has 4.855 million people, of whom just over 35 per cent are Christian, 29 per cent Shiite Muslim, 29 per cent Sunni Muslim and 5 per cent Druze.
Such figures are so sensitive in Lebanon that the last official census was conducted in 1932 during the French Mandate, which said Christians made up 55 per cent of the population.
Arabs Break US-led Palestinian Aid Blockade
“Arab banks are to transfer the funds without abiding by any restrictions imposed on the banks,” said Moussa. (Reuters)
CAIRO Infuriated by the latest American veto that block a mere international condemnation of the Beit Hanun massacre, Arab foreign ministers decided Sunday, November 12, to break a US-led international aid freeze imposed on the Palestinian Authority and start stepping up payments.
“We decided not to cooperate with it. There will no longer be an international siege,” Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Sheik Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa told a news conference after an emergency meeting.
9/11 : ‘Al-Qaeda’ is a Manufactured Intelligence Front
“Ana raicha Al Qaeda” is colloquial for “I’m going to the toilet”. A very common and widespread use of the word “Al-Qaeda” in different Arab countries in the public language is for the toilet bowl. This name comes from the Arabic verb “Qa’ada” which mean “to sit”, pertinently, on the “Toilet Bowl”. In most Arabs homes there are two kinds of toilets: “Al-Qaeda” also called the “Hamam Franji” or foreign toilet, and “Hamam Arabi” or “Arab toilet” which is a hole in the ground. Lest we forget it, the potty used by small children is called “Ma Qa’adia” or “Little Qaeda”.
9/11 : In honor of our veterans, we call for truth
We invite every single American daily newspaper to join us in our demand for an independent council to completely and thoroughly investigate the deaths of nearly 3,000 American citizens in the attacks of 9/11.
Let us start with …
The Secret Service at Booker Elementary: The Dog That Did Not Bark
THE CONTROLLED COLLAPSE OF WTC 7
Thermite and the WTC Collapses
Shaped Charges and the World Trade Center Collapses
“Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It’s classified information.” — US official quoted in Carl Cameron’s Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11.
9/11 : Rudolph Giuliani Got Warning WTC Towers Were Going To Collapse
As Rudy heads into the 2008 Presidential race, this question needs to be asked of him at every public opportunity, “Who warned Rudy that the WTC towers were going to fall, and how could they know, given that no steel-framed building had ever collapsed for fire before 9-11?”
War Crimes Suit Filed in Germany Against Rumsfeld Over Prisoner Torture
The complaint requests that the German Federal Prosecutor open an investigation – and ultimately, a criminal prosecution – looking into the responsibility of high-ranking U.S. officials for authorizing war crimes in the name of the so-called “War on Terror
Germany urged to prosecute Rumsfeld for war crimes
Human rights activists are trying to persuade German prosecutors to open a war crimes investigation against the outgoing US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld over his alleged role in abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. In a 220-page document lodged with Germany’s federal prosecutor’s office, the US-based Centre for Constitutional Rights (CCR) alleges that Mr Rumsfeld and 11 other high-ranking US intelligence and military figures either ordered, aided or failed to prevent war crimes at both places…
U.S. Administration: Detainees have no rights
The Bush administration said Monday that Guantanamo Bay prisoners have no right to challenge their detentions in civilian courts and that lawsuits by hundreds of detainees should be dismissed.
US President Given Undue Power to Silence Critics
The current version of the Military Commissions redefines an “unlawful enemy combatant” (UEC) so broadly that it could include anyone who organizes a march against the war in Iraq.
The Lethal Legacy of George W. Bush!
George W. Bush really believes that he can alter his destiny in the last two years of his presidency. He is convinced that he can call in the cavalry and turn his catastrophic venture into a magical success. He thinks that history will ignore the years that led to his ill-fated invasion and remember only whatever happens from here on in. He thinks that he will be judged by his illusory willingness to listen to saner voices and to consider more competent ideas. He truly believes he can morph his image from treachery to sainthood in the short time he has left in office.
War Crime : Stop yawning at Bush’s lies
This is not a matter of vengeance or, God forfend, politics, but of restoring the people’s faith in their government. How dare these people lie to you and me and send Americans to die in Iraq for reasons that turned out to be wholly nonexistent? One way to return to the truth is to find the liars. I ask this not for myself but – and I mean it – for the troops.
See The Lie of The Century.
War Crime : Ethnic cleansing’s friend in Israel
This article calls for total honesty about Israeli crimes, but as a way to make sure Apartheid can continue in the Holy Land. The Jewish Homeland” is the problem, not the solution. All the Palestinian refugees should return in full, as soon as possible. Otherwise all we have is more of the same growing worse as day by day by day Apartheid Israel’s immigrant bigots feel free to make life miserable for the native non-Jewish population of Palestine.
Movers and Shakers of U.S. Foreign Policy
Without a doubt, in the very near future, Americans will wake up with a jolt and realize that they have paid the heftiest price of all. Their White House can no longer make a decision without Israel’s blessing. They will recognize that gone with the lives of their sons and daughters, is their reputation, and they have become a nation both morally and fiscally bankrupt only to enable the growth of an unstoppable fiend in the Middle East.
The Myth of the “Anfal Genocide” – Saddam Hussein Did Not “Kill the Kurds”
Many crimes against Iraq have been justified by the demonization of Saddam Hussein. Invasion was justified by claims that he possessed “weapons of mass destruction,” had ties to al-Qaeda, and posed a threat to the territorial United States. The claims turned out to be lies. There were no “weapons of mass destruction” or programs to develop them. There were no ties to al-Qaeda. He did not threaten U.S. territory. Those who still support the occupation now say it was justified because Saddam Hussein was a “brutal dictator.” One of the main complaints against him is that “he killed the Kurds.” The usual reference is the Anfal campaign of the Iraqi army from February 23, 1988 to September 6, 1988. It is claimed that Anfal was a campaign of genocide. It can now be said that the “Anfal genocide” never happened. It is another lie. Ironically it is the second of the illegal U.S.-run “trials” of Mr. Hussein in Baghdad that allows this conclusion…
Iraqi I.E.D.s track back to the US?
Zapata Engineering, an offshoot of Zapata Oil with offices in North Carolina, Hawaii and Tel Aviv, have now been linked to the hiring of private Mossad contractors aka alleged Israeli Engineers in Iraq. Of course that is not the real story.
It can now be reported that Zapata Engineering has hired these Israeli Mossad-types into Iraq for the purposes of alleged counter-insurgency.
The improvised explosive devices killing our kids and keeping Iraq in chaos use old surplus ordnance. I can confirm that Zapata Engineering (mentioned in this story) here on Oahu has a $500 million contract with the US government … to dispose of surplus and outdated ordnance.
Baghdad: The New Saigon?
As the Democrats have now captured Congress, they assume co-responsibility for the retreat from Mesopotamia. Which is as it should be.
No Exit Strategy
Ret. Gen. John Keane of the “Military Senior Adviser Panel” takes a different tack. He recommends that 40,000 additional U.S. troops be sent to secure Baghdad. And Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., too, continues to press for sending more troops to Iraq as the only way to “salvage” the situation.
Death Squads Exposed: The reality of U.S. occupation Of Iraq
This shocking film investigates the links between the death squads and high-ranking Shia politicians. It reveals how the Shia militia that these politicians control have systematically infiltrated and taken over police units and even entire government ministeries. It investigates how these units are closely linked to the death squads, indeed they often are the death squads. And the killers act with impunity — there’s little investigation into their activities.
Up to 150 people kidnapped from Baghdad research institute in largest mass kidnapping since the start of the U.S. occupation
Gunmen dressed as police commandos kidnapped up to 150 staff and visitors in a lightning raid on a Baghdad research institute Tuesday, the largest mass abduction since the start of the U.S. occupation. Iraq’s higher education minister immediately ordered all universities closed until security improvements are made, saying he was “not ready to see more professors get killed. “I have only one choice which is to suspend classes at universities. We have no other choice,” Abed Theyab said in an address to parliament. Theyab said he had repeatedly petitioned for more university security from the ministries of defense and interior, who command the police, but had received none…
Update on Iraq’s mass kidnapping
…The kidnapers took the hostages from the High-education Ministry, riding on the highway to an Area near “Iraqi National Stadium” which is near the Interior Ministry, their they got rid of the police, took it back to the Ministry [where they belong] and then continued riding different cars to Sadr-City, to reach Sadr-City they must pass through three American checkpoints (…) Iraqirabita also managed to contact on the released hostages and he said: They isolate women from men and searched all the floors of the building. It seems that the number of gunmen has been very significant to do these procedures, then they handcuffed us and blindfolded our eyes with adhesive tape, thye put us in cars, I do not know what, but seemed to me a small bus or similar. They asked me if I am a Sunni or Shiite, because my name is neutral [can be Sunni or Shiite…ie Mohhamed, Ali], I told them I am Shiite, they asked me to enumerate the twelve Shiite imams, tell their names, then they told me what the prayers conditions at the Shiites, I gave the answers because I have some knowledge, and I am ready for this moment, thank God .. After that the kidnappers shaved my beard, and somebody said “send him free”, when I went out, I knew I was in Sadr-City…
Five police chiefs arrested after mass kidnapping
FIVE police chiefs have been detained after armed men in military-style uniforms seized scores of people from a Sunni-led ministry in broad daylight yesterday. The raid on a higher education ministry building in a normally peaceful area of the capital came as Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki faced growing criticism from his US backers for not doing more to rein in Shiite militias with alleged links to the security forces. The hostages seized from the ministry’s scientific research institute in the middle-class neighbourhood of Karrada included visitors as well as staff, in one of the largest mass abductions of Iraq’s sectarian dirty war. Government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh acknowledged that the mass abduction was the work of militiamen who had infiltrated the interior ministry and were carrying out “organised” killings…
“Death Squads” the documentary
This is the Channel 4 documentary “The Death Squads”, screened about a week ago. Night after night death squads rampage through Iraq killing civilians. ‘The Death Squads’, the last film of the Iraq season, reveals that these organised killings are linked to the Iraqi government and to politicians who want to turn Iraq into a Shia state aligned to Iran. More worrying is that many these Iraqis politicians, who are behind the “Death Squads”, are received by the western countries and introduced to the public as heroes of freedom and champions democracy…

NATO QUEBEC CONFERENCE: NATO Involved in flawed Afghanistan Bomb, Brute and Bribe Operation
…Since 2001, most of the NATO countries have been belligerents in Afghanistan. The current “mission” described as a 3D – defense, development, and diplomacy- mission violates a fundamental international principle that a belligerent state should never be involved on the ground in reconstruction. NATO states are supporting a 3 B campaign: BOMB, BRUTE, and AND BRIBE OPERATION. Bombing a village, blasting in doors, brutally killing and wounding citizens and ignoring culture and then bribing with funds for reconstruction of hospitals to heal the victims are beyond any claims of legitimacy…

Listen Up, You Congressional Morons!
Well, listen up, you morons, particularly those of you in Congress, both coming and going, because I am going to tell you, in plain language and without subtle innuendo, exactly what it is that voters said this past week.
None of you has a mandate for anything. Not one. Had each elected position on last week’s ballot carried an option marked “leave this job vacant for the entire term,” a much larger number of you now would be seeking new employment than you possibly can imagine.
Very few of you actually are wanted in your position. You newly elected are there simply because we wanted to deliver a message to all of you, not because you somehow are better in our eyes. Those of you heading out the door are leaving for the same reason. Make no mistake about this fact and get over yourselves. Are you listening, incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi? Get over yourself and do it now. Our patience with Congressional hubris and incompetence has grown exceedingly thin.

Mother Tells All About White House Sex Slave Ring And Son’s Kidnapping
If you recall, the stories of 15-year-old callboys wandering through the White House in the middle of the night was linked to the “Franklin Cover-Up” case exposed by Nebraska State Sen. John DeCamp. In that case, a Republican operative named Larry King was involved with procuring boys and girls from Boys Town in Nebraska and elsewhere and entrapping them in a child sex-slave and espionage ring. King, with an annual salary of under 20K, was throwing sex parties for the powerful in a $5,000-a-month condo in Washingotn, DC; apparently taping the proceedings for blackmail purposes.
One of the victims of this ring was one Paul Bonacci, who testified in court proceedings that he helped kidnap Johnny Gosch into this ring in 1982. It was apparently at 2:29 AM, Sunday, Feb. 20 that the question was first asked — is “Jeff Gannon” really Johnny Gosch?
By the end of the day, Hunter S. Thompson was reported dead.
