911 False Flag - Unter falscher Flagge

Made by Nuoviso last year or in 2006, this excellent German movie professionally and methodically focuses on the inconsistencies in the official version of the 911 events as well as on the evidence which was suppressed. In addition, it answers questions about why we still know nothing about it to this day and why we are being deceived – also in Europe.

The film touches on other false-flag operations including Bologna and 7/7. It also describes how after 7/7 the theme of Gleneagles suddenly shifted from third world debt to war and how the US Global Missile Defence is being implemented for a First Strike all-out nuclear war against Russia (and/or possibly China as well).

It clearly highlights the inextricable connection between a dangerously aggressive US military/foreign policy and how 911 was staged to create not only police states in the USA, the UK and the West but to soften up the Europeans to allow the installation of a Global Missile 'Defence' whose purpose is to conduct such an attack.

The UK Anti-War Movement should clearly understand this and join forces with the 911 Truth Movement to march against the threat under which the world is now in from a common enemy. It is quite ridiculous that the Anti-War Movement should remain politically aloof. But understandable, led as it is by a political party, the SWP, which is infested with MI5 stooges. It's another aspect of how the SWP trojan is being used by the Secret State to divide and rule us. Why do we allow ourselves to remain in this intolerable position?

You can see a high-quality version of the movie at the Nuoviso website (downloadable using, for example, free Realplayer 11 software) and an inferior version at Google,

911 False Flag was made by the same people who made the Zero film shown at the 911 Conference both in Brussels and Amsterdam. It was originally produced for the German market as Unter falscher Flagge without subtitles.

Here are a few quotes from the English subtitles. As the English is slightly stilted I have made some small additions and alterations so they read better.

Oil, the Arms Industry, the Neocons & the Project for a New American Century

"The entire ruling elite of the American government and all who surround them come from large corporations and specifically out of the Oil and Weapons industry. That's Cheney, the vice-president. That's Rumsfeld who, meanwhile, has left. That's Feith, that's Wolfowitz. Perle [the Prince of Darkness] is back as one of the chief planners and many others. They joined forces prior to the election of Bush and wrote about a New American Century."

"And advanced forms of biological warfare that can 'target' specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a useful political tool" -Project for a New American Century.

"So in a manner the blacks must be exterminated and we must develop biological weapons that target dark skin. I mean that is a sentence from some monstrosity! ... a racially effective biological chemical weapon ... that's what these people are about. In Germany they would be thrown into prison for hate-mongering, which is where they belong."

"It's clearly stated by Wolfowitz in this document that the Americans cannot allow any other nation or any other coalition of nations to become even remotely as strong as they are. This statement correlates, interestingly enough, with their reflections about how that could be achieved through a catastrophic event similar to Pearl Harbour which would lead to a change in consciousness of US American citizens."

Need for a New Investigation

"Since 911 was exactly the Pearl Harbour that was advocated in these papers, naturally Rumsfeld, Cheney and Wolfowitz are, in a sense, under suspicion. But it's not sufficient in my opinion to [just] say that they were responsible. It is only sufficient to demand a new investigation."

"And in the USA, where the Patriot Act was rushed through after the attacks [and] where civil rights are actually being successfullly dismantled, where a police state is on the way to become truly totalitarian ... Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib and Mazar-i-Sharif just after the invasion of Afghanistan ... these are things I would characterise as fascistic elements."

It's Oil

"It is not without reason that all of these people, starting with Bush himself, have pottered about half their lifetimes for the Oil industry. In all these matters, it is not about democracy and freedom for the Iraqis and Afghanis. Bush and Cheney couldn't care less about that."

"It's about securing the energy reserves. And now that no oil is coming out of Iraq because the whole infrastructure has been destroyed that suits OPEC and the multinational oil corporations just fine because as we see by the current price of oil they have never earned as much as they do today."

"The Americans wage war with 911. Bush drives his election campaign with 911"

[here the movie cuts to 77]

"At the same time the G8 Summit was taking place in Gleneagles ... after the [7/7] attacks the theme of Gleneagles changed completely: it's simply a disgrace how European nations, against better knowledge, act in full complicity. Where is anyone from these governments to express any form of opposition to these plans?"

Russia's Next

Putin comes out of the intelligence branch and knows, of course, about the game that is being played on the Grand Chessboard. He also knows that he or Russia is a figure on that chessboard. Now the passive figure has transformed himself into a man of action who does not accept the plans of the Americans to give the entire Russian Oil and Gas industry into the hands of the Americans vis-a-vis into the control of American firms. He has counteracted that."

Global Missile Defence: the US Plan to Attack Russia in a First Strike

"And Putin knows that this Global Missile Defence is, of course, directed against Russia ... whom else should it be directed against? The objective is the following: [the GMD] can never cover the entire area, It can only intercept a limited number of enemy missiles. And this limited number of enemy missiles is the number which is left over after a destructive pre-emptive strike by America, a certain [retaliatory] second-strike capacity of the enemy is still intact. To intercept the remainder which can still be discharged, that is the objective of the GMD. That means it is supposed to give the Americans the ability to launch a pre-emptive [first strike] attack without consequences and to remain thereby invulnerable."

Germany tied to the US

"One is unwilling to confront the facts because to do so would be to call into question the transatlantic ties which serve Germany's national interests. Every Chancellor voices this [interest]. It is fatal."

The Government is our Arch-Enemy

"We hope that our Government wants only the best for its citizens. When we suddenly realise that the government is our arch-enemy our world breaks down completely ... we do not want to believe it to be true."

Suppression of Government Criminality

"[These are questions that] lie on the tip of the tongue of anyone who has even a minimal interest in criminality. But anyone who does question is denounced as a conspiracy theorist. To present that at the risk that the Government will be exposed as a secret band of murderers which could be executed or imprisoned for life ... that must be suppressed as much as possible."

[cuts to scenes of people all over Europe and the world marching for 911 Truth]

911 must be Explained

"We would not have had all these fatal political actions had it not been for 911. It is for that reason that 911 must be explained"

The Courage to hold true to Law

"What I would wish for myself ... is courage to think logically. Also courage to express objections even against the opinions of the majority. To hold true to the basic rule of law and international law and to demand it of others ..."

The Truth must be Told

"We must see to it that more and more people know what is really going on, what the motives behind it are. They must simply know what the motives behind it are. They must simply know that what we have been told is not true ... we know from history that governments are capable of doing anything. They can commit unbelievable crimes. They can sacrifice their own citizens to sell to the people a plan, a strategy, a preconceived decision to go to war."

Gestapo Watch - UK Cops try to censor Anti-Cluster Bomb Film


In 2004 a group of Brighton peace campaigners began to bang pots and pans outside their local arms manufacturers EDO MBM in disgust of their part in the Iraq war. This has grown into the Smash EDO campaign, which has cost the company millions, been the subject of large scale police operations and has tested the right to protest in the UK.

Using activist, police and CCTV footage plus interviews with those involved in the campaign, 'On The Verge' tells the story of one of the most persistent and imaginative campaigns to emerge out of the UK's anti-war movement and direct action scene.

On the Verge - The Film They Tried to Ban
Indymedia, 23 March 2008

Police have intervened across the country to censor 'On the Verge' an independent documentary about the Smash EDO campaign to shut down the Brighton's weapons manufacturer EDO MBM. So far establishments in Southampton, Chichester, Bath and Oxford as well as Brighton have come under police pressure to cancel film showings. In Brighton police intervened to prevent a showing at the Duke of York's Cinema, just one hour prior to the scheduled premiere.

'A misguided piece of official hysteria'

Police are going to unusual lengths to stop you seeing an obscure, low-budget documentary about an arms manufacturer

Steven Morris -- The Guardian -- Thursday March 27 2008

Over the past 10 days, the film has become notorious, not so much because of the material it contains but because of the reaction of police forces and local authorities to it. Made for less than £500, the film tells how a small but committed group of activists, smashEDO, are taking on the Brighton base of an international arms manufacturer and, in the process, their local constabulary.

The police, who are not shown in a good light in the film, intervened to stop the movie's premiere at a cinema in Brighton, and since then police officers and council officials have been paying calls to venues across the country where On the Verge (so called because the smashEDO protesters were confined for a while to a narrow grass verge opposite the factory they were targeting) is due to be shown, suggesting that it is not a good idea to show the film.

Join the debate: watch the On the Verge trailer and give us your views on heavy-handed censorship:

NYPD brutally clubs Tibet demonstrators outside the United Nations Building

This horrendous video shows the world how the USA has descended into a nazi, police state. Bush is responsible for having ordered this as well as the deaths of literally millions across the world.

Britain's Blair and Brown are his cohorts.

The US was taken over by these murderous gangsters in two fixed elections in 2000 and 2004. What will they do in 2008?

The same police state was imported into Britain by Blair on Bush's orders. Our political 'leaders', our police, our judiciary are breaking their own laws in a fake "War on Terror".

Videos like this show us all who the real terrorists are. We have to find ways to unite together now to protect us from an evil which will not stop spreading until it takes over the entire Planet.

These videos vividly document the evil that is emanating from Bush and his gangsters. They need to be seen all over the world, If you have a blog, website or mailing list put this news and videolink on it now.

Sarkozy cuts a Radioactive Entente with Perfidious Albion

Washington's new stooge Nicolas Sarkozy, now increasingly disliked by his fellow French, hops over the Channel to announce a new Entente Cordiale with Broon and the Nu Labor Right. Watch out folks, for this means that the French and British 'neoliberal globalists and the neocons are conspiring together against what's left of the European social-democrats.

It's a huge PR operation which the BBC is predictably enthusiastically taking part in. As it did recently on the Washington-led China-bashing exercise where the Tibetans provided them with a good political football.

So it's no accident that Sarkozy and Broon chose a football stadium for their press 'summit'. Showing off his bored-looking media celeb wife Sarkozy, who always reminds me of a smarmy waiter, talks about selling French nuclear reactors to Britain (timed to coincide with Hutton's recent speech) and sending French forces to kill and be killed in Afghanistan. Nukes to bribe French industry with and French cannon-fodder on the instructions of Washington DC.

And did I hear something about the European Defence Force? Still early days for that but by tying France's participation in NATO with the EDF we can see the way the wind's blowing. Sarkozy wants the EDF to "complement" NATO and Broon and Nu Labor will find that a very acceptable compromise to an EDF in competition with Washington and the present USUK Alliance.

Sarkozy's visit is an attempt to betray the European project by helping turn the planned EDF into a Trojan horse for the US. This new Anglo-French initiative is meant to pull the EU further down the Washington road together with "An alliance of nationalists, neoliberal ideologues and Rumsfeld's New Europe [which] is at work to reduce the continent to an internal market plus NATO"

It is ironic that the very same anti-EU forces plus the treacherous Blair and his successor Broon should be the ones doing Washington's dirty work from within. They are nothing more than wreckers and part of a ghoulish alliance in which the anti-EU groups now find themselves.

Strange world we live in ...

Cuba condemns campaign to undermine Beijing Olympics
Statement from the revolutionary government

EVER since the International Olympic Committee agreed in 2001 to make Beijing the host of the 2008 Olympic Games, the government and people of the People’s Republic of China have assumed the event’s organization with an unsurpassed sporting spirit and great responsibility, sparing no resources or efforts. They have accepted many suggestions and adopted decisions aimed at guaranteeing optimal conditions for the visit by participants in the Games. The decision to award the venue to the People’s Republic of China constituted recognition of its unquestionable prestige, the level it has attained in sports, and its work to benefit the international sports movement.

The Cuban government condemns with all vigor the attempts to organize a crusade to cause this noble effort to fail, with hidden political motives. This campaign is also aggression against the international Olympic movement. At the same time, Cuba expresses its recognition of and total support for the efforts of the People’s Republic of China to guarantee the success of the Olympic Games.

A malicious media campaign has been fostered, seconded by actions aimed at undermining international confidence in the Chinese government’s ability to keep its promises. In addition to that, there are the recent events related to separatism in Tibet that led to deaths and incalculable material losses. It is evident that these disturbances have been induced and promoted from outside the country. For Cuba, the role played by the so-called Radio Free Asia has been revealing; it is the main mouthpiece of the current anti-China media campaign, and its sponsors are the same who defend those inciting separatism within China.

The acts of aggression against 19 Chinese embassies and consulates in 16 countries are an extremely serious violation of the spirit and letter of the Vienna Conventions on diplomatic and consular relations.

The Cuban government expresses its firm opposition to any attempt to meddle in China’s internal affairs, or to attack its sovereignty and territorial integrity. Likewise, it urges international public opinion and the sports community to defend the noble ideas that inspire the Olympic spirit.

The BBC, Tibet and the Freisler Effect

Suspicions grow that the 'uprising' in Tibet was actually part of a premeditated event planned deliberately to coincide with the Olympic Games in China and the relay of the Olympic torch from Greece. CIA and US complicity in these events has already been brought to light in an another blog article below, Tibet Uprising & US Government Funding.

Whatever one's feeling are about current events in Tibet it is a very sad thing that a people's confrontation with a much larger nation is being used as a political football by a hypocritical West whose own record in human rights and war crimes is stained with the blood of millions of innocents. If anyone should be banned from participating in the Olympics it should be the USA and the UK for their ongoing war crimes. But no chance of that.

Meanwhile the same old macabre game is being played out, as usual, by a BBC almost beside itself with hysteria that a "peaceful, non-violent country" and that nice man the Dalai Lama are being bullied by a much larger China.

The BBC has gone into a feeding-frenzy about Tibet with constant newscasts on the quarter hour on its international, News 24 channel. Chinese spokesmen are given coverage only to be shouted at, ridiculed and harangued by some BBC person with the haircut and appearance of a village idiot.

This sort of abuse is quite common on the BBC and is invariably aimed at nationalities that the BBC doesn't like. Apart from the Chinese it is quite common to see Iraqis, Iranians and Russians treated in a similar fashion. Not only does the BBC appear to be under strict instructions from its paymaster, the Government, to act as an enthusiastic conduit for the propaganda of the New American Century and the Anglo-Saxon Alliance but it is to carry out the task by insulting and screaming abuse at the common ideological enemy.

Yesterday, I was watching a spokesman from the Chinese Embassy in London being given the treatment. The poor man, whose English was not all it could be kept referring to Gordon Brown as 'she' (well, perhaps he and Chinese Intelligence know something the rest of us don't and maybe Gordy is a cross-dresser on the quiet) while being attacked by the predatory village-idiot.

Clearly aware that the Chinese, whose self control and behaviour was in the circumstances exemplary, was going to wilt under fire the village-idiot piled into him as if the man was in the dock in a McCarthyite show trial. Insult after insult followed. The village-idiot just couldn't help himself, no doubt fancying that the audience would be applauding this heroic act in the name of human rights.

It was quite nauseating to watch. I felt ashamed to be British wondering just what the Chinese must be thinking about the village-idiot's disgusting table manners.

And yet this kind of thing has become a regular occurrence on a BBC which Hitler's Chief Prosecutor, Roland Freisler, would find a lot in common with. It bodes ill for the future. I for one would not miss the BBC if it went into liquidation tomorrow. The trouble is that that's not likely as the Government would not want to lose its chief propaganda outlet.

It will be more likely increasingly commercialised whilst still being permitted to screw the domestic viewers with an annual licence fee. And the Freisler Effect will just go from bad to worse as Britain sinks into an Orwellian nightmare.

The Role of the CIA: Behind the Dalai Lama's Holy Cloak

This incisive article by Michael Backman outlines the relationship of the Dalai Lama and his organization to US intelligence.

The Dalai Lama has been on the CIA payroll since the late 1950s. He is an instrument of US intelligence.

An understanding of this longstanding relationship to the CIA is essential, particularly in the light of recent events.

In all likelihood US intelligence was behind the protest movement, organized to occur a few months prior to the Beijing Olympic games.

Europhobia and Where it's Taking Us

Alf Garnett: Patron Saint of Britain's Europhobes and Bigots

This essay was written as a counterblast at the Europhobes on the UK 911 Truth Forum.

As I've been away from this thread whilst dealing with the Europe issue elsewhere, I thought it would be a good idea to summarise what has been going on.

It started with my publishing the European Left's Athens Declaration in order that forum readers could be given an insight into an alternative Europe which they would otherwise miss given the totally distorted, black-and-white caricatures they are presented here by the Europhobes and the UK's tabloid mainstream media (MSM) from where they mainly seem to get their information.

Far from being a monolith, 'Europe' as it is labelled by the Europhobes is a conglomerate of nation states, cultures and languages where folk go about their lives, organising themselves into interest and pressure groups as they do everywhere. The European Left is just one of these, bringing in many of the Left parties throughout continental Europe. Significantly, there is no representation from the UK which suggests a lack of interest in things Continental by what remains of the UK Left.

Europhobia in Britain is not just a thing of the Right and its raggle-tag hangers-on. It goes right across the political spectrum and as an old UK-watcher I have often suggested in past columns in this forum that the malaise has resulted from centuries of imperialist brain-washing to which our population has been subjected by its ruling classes. The myth of the "freeborn Englishman", in particular, has a lot to answer for and this falsehood, of course, ran in parallel with the belligerent, jingoistic idea that Britannia ruled the waves and could simply do no wrong wherever her soldiers and missionaries went. The world was her oyster, there to plunder and rape at her pleasure.

But British hypocrisy couldn't behave in this barbaric manner without a cover. And together with Britain's Anglo-Saxon descendants busily wiping-out the Native Americans while calling it their "Manifest Destiny" to do so, Britain's savagery abroad was quickly and self-righteously justified by Rudyard Kipling's pompous concept of the "White Man's Burden".

It took a Polish writer like Joseph Conrad to show up the White Man's Burden for what it really was, exposing the descent into savagery of the all-powerful white man who found himself suddenly free and a long way away from the restraints of social and legal control deep in the Congo.

Conrad's Congo was, of course, the Belgian Congo but the message was the same, given in the protagonist's last words before his own death: "Exterminate the brutes!"

Those three words, "Exterminate the brutes!", neatly sum up the colonial past of the white man everywhere. And behind the cant and hypocrisy of British Victorian imperialism it was to be found alive and well there.

"Exterminate the Brutes" was the policy used by Britain after the Indian Mutiny where the Indians, particularly Muslims, were terrorized into centuries of subjection. Curiously enough, a similar terrorizing of Muslims is still being practised by the British state which has neatly immunised itself from race laws by using the police and judiciary to bring about a regime of political terror against Muslims under the guise of a spurious 'War on Terror', a nice Orwellian twist.

Racist by nature, Britain's rulers have long practised rule-by-terror. It was also used against the 'Black Irish' and the Gaelic-speaking Highlanders who, after the defeat of the Battle of Culloden, were subjected to the most unspeakable crimes by Butcher Cumberland's redcoats. Gaelic was forbidden and anyone caught speaking it would have their tongues ripped out. If not exterminate then rip out their tongues, teach them who their rulers are and learn 'em hard!

Exterminate the Brutes was practised by the British Army which shot down innocent Irish Folk on Bloody Sunday but thirty years ago. It led to the rape and torture of black Kenyans by British Tommies during the manufactured Mau-Mau uprising in the 'fifties. It was used by the British rulers of the Punjab in WWII when 4 million Indians died in a famine that was entirely preventable but was allowed to happen by the Raj. It is seen once again in the cover-ups going on by the British Army of the atrocities its soldiers have and are committing in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The violent, pathological nature of Britain's ruling classes was stirred-up once more by gangsters like Bush Jr and Cheney and the killing goes on.

Racist attitudes thrive in contemporary Britain, on the one hand when it rears its ugly head in the persecution of Muslims by the police and legal system and on the other in the mass slaughter of innocent Iraqis and Afghanis by both the British and their Anglo-Saxon Alliance US counterparts. It's there on the streets as well.

The violence and bigotry never went away with the end of Britain's colonial era. It's still there, well-embedded into the British psyche, waiting to pop out again like a ghoulish jack-in-the-box.

It is against this background that I see Britain's current epidemic of Europhobia. For that Europhobia is just another facet of the pathological mind which now sees Britain somehow under threat of "imposed values" from the European Union as well as from the immigration of 'hordes of East Europeans'.

The idea has been spread that somehow the Commissioners in Brussels are tinkering not just with our laws but with our actual culture! Britain is under threat! Light the beacons and prepare to take on a new Armada!

Well it must be true because that's what the Brits are being told in their favourite newspapers, especially in Rupert Murdoch's SUN and the erstwhile Hitler-and-Mussolini-worshipping DAILY MAIL. The fact that Murdoch is an ardent supporter of the gangster Bushco outfit and US global imperialism is never allowed to stray into the minds of the lumpen masses, given their daily dose of brainwashing bilge in a comic-book form, reading-age seven.

A wonderful thing, dumbing down.

Similarly on the TV where, as John Pilger observes, news reportage is now not so much a case of reporting the news with any attempt towards objectivity but about entertainment. Entertainment. The news is there to entertain you and me, not to inform or to encourage one to think. It's a kind of ghastly, horror-story version of Page Three boobs and bums. The real death and carnage is sanitised and kept off our screens in the same way that Samantha Fox's extremities were airbrushed and the pubic hair in girlie magazines neatly trimmed and clipped with every hair in place. Reality is a plastic bubble in which we all live, The BBC's news-readers are invariably giggling, blonde dolly birds who appear to be retarded teenagers and often most probably have their mental age.

In a dumbed-down society that has been deliberately created to keep us all dumb and under control, it's not surprising to read the dumb views of Europhobes on this forum who clearly have got their information from closet-fascist rags like the DAILY MAIL or the SUN or from their closet-fascist political groups like UKIP and its extremist hangers-on. These same Europhobes present themselves in their talking-shop here as fighters for freedom, banging the 911 drum as it were sufficient to provide their credentials, show just how liberationist they are when in fact, by having allowed themselves to be duped by the latter-day imperialists of the Right, they have become, in effect, part of the problem of the slide into a domestically-produced totalitarian, police state that Britain is experiencing.

Blissfully ignoring the real threats to our freedom they, with a lot of help from the gutter press they read, have found a nice scapegoat to blame all their troubles on. Whilst it would be politically incorrect to blame it on blacks it's ok simply to turn a blind eye on the racist persecution of Muslims by the very institutions they protest are now under threat from Brussels. While grumbling about the threat to Corpus Juris they are quite happy to turn their backs on the actual corpses resulting from the killing and torturing going on by British Tommies, the 8 million dead in Iraq and Afghanistan since 1991 when successive British governments committed a series of war-crimes across the world.

All this is largely ignored by the Europhobes who go on banging their xenophobic drums in an infantile manner. It's all the fault of "Europe", that's who threatens the free-born Englishman. So let's project our terminal state of extreme denial onto this scape-goat. They are the threat, not us!

The Australian idea of the whingeing Brit came about by no accident. It really happened in Australia in the early 'fifties when there was an awful lot of complaining by British immigrants that Oz wasn't after all the Land of Milk and Honey they'd been told about when they bought their £10 tickets at Australia House in London. Whingeing is a national past-time.

But it's not just whingeing, it's scape-goating. And that's what's really frightening. British public opinion --quite often reflected in this Forum in all its bigotry-- has been manipulated by the Murdochracies in a cold and calculated way into seeing "Europe" as its enemy. The purpose is very clear: to use the emotional, blood-tie and language connection to draw the Brits away from Europe and into the arms of the global imperialists in Washington DC in an infernal Anglo-Saxon Alliance where pan-Atlantic capital can fight out its last stand against a changing world where Anglo-American imperialism is in its death throes. That is what the Washington quislings mean when they say that we live in a very dangerous world. What they omit to mention is that when their system of global domination is under threat the danger comes from them. "Shared values" indeed.

The Anglo-Saxon Alliance has little place for a European Union which is seen as a potential threat to it. Consequently, US policy is to divide and rule the EU by splitting it into a "new" and "old" Europe where hard-line capitalist East Europeans like the Czech, Vaclav Klaus, and his Polish counterparts can be used to undermine the social-democrats of the "old" Europe in the west. This is happening as I write and it is very disturbing to see that the British Europhobes on this forum seem quite happy to go to bed with these reactionaries in their war against Brussels.

Ill-informed as they are, the Europhobes just haven't thought things out. They haven't done their homework. Among the general public this wouldn't at all surprise me but on a 911 Truth Forum it becomes a cause for deep concern.

There is a frightening paradox here that whilst on the one hand these champions of British freedom are quite happy to ally themselves with the xenophobes and racists of the extreme right they are hugely undermining their own purported hostility to USUK intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan and the belligerent imperialism of NATO.

By the way, I am here making an assumption that most 911 Truthers are aware of the connection between the events of 911 and USUK globalist militarism and that the heart of the problem they face lies with US imperialism and the neo-fascism of the Bushco/Brown 'special relationship'.

This is basic stuff that any 911 Truther would be expected to understand. But how many of them -especially the Europhobic variety- realise that by continuing, as they do, to oppose a confederated United States of Europe and a common European Defence Force, they are actually aligning themselves with the extremist hawks of US imperialism?


Czech President Warns Against “Europeanism”

Former Soviet Dissident Warns For EU Dictatorship

Don't believe me? Then read this article by a virulently anti-EU writer from the Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom at the Heritage Foundation, an extreme-right hawkish foundation which, alongside the now-defunct Congress for Cultural Freedom, has for decades acted as a think-tank for US hard-liners.

These people can see the danger posed to US imperialism by the growth of a unified Europe and its Defence Force. The article also recognises the divisive role that up until now Britain has played in preventing that unification from happening. It recognizes the 'special' bilateral interests between US and UK capitalism and observes how important it is that US relations with European member states should remain bilateral rather than having to deal with a less-friendly Brussels.

"Britain has found its strongest, most enduring alliance in its Special Relationship with the United States. The common political, diplomatic, historical, and cultural values shared between Americans and Britons are deep and strong. Further still, Britain and America are prepared to defend these values--with military force if necessary. Common values are meaningful only if both parties are ready to defend them."

Well, we've seen what the USUK Alliance has done in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now, are the Europhobes for or against the continuance of this murderous alliance? If they are, as I would hope, against it then are they prepared to leave their prejudices aside and see that the only way Britain's dirty game with Washington can be put at an end is by its being superseded by a European Defence Policy which has nothing or little to do with US interests?

The Europhobes should read the abovementioned document carefully before asking themselves how possibly they could have been so seriously misled by those who while spouting empty talk of freedoms were actually grooming them to join a campaign to divide Europe against itself so that USUK imperialism could remain the bully on the block?

UKIP and the oft-quoted Brussels Journal are just two of the reactionary organisations to be found in this meeting-ground of right-wingers, racists, Islamophobes & their ilk. Consciously or unconsciously our Europhobic friends end up promoting their poisonous views and helping to perpetuate US imperialism.

Europhobia, as we find it, is therefore not just a reactionary thing in itself with its roots in bigotry and a post-imperialist sense of false superiority. It is a major factor in fuelling, and a symptom of, the conditions which are helping to bring about a 21st Century fascist, police state in Britain. A fascist state imported from Washington DC. Instead of thinking to join forces with progressives throughout Europe and elsewhere, Europhobia is an entirely negative poison which is crippling and killing the British psyche.

It has to be challenged and dealt with now. We make our own destiny. Now it is up to us to choose what that destiny is to be.

Arch-conspirator, Karl Rove

Republicans Plan Double-Whammy

This holiday weekend, elite political circles will be charged with talk of a Republican “Double Whammy,” the internal nomenclature for a top secret plan to deliver the White House to the hand-picked candidate of the Bush-Cheney junta.

While the media is filled with stories analyzing and dissecting the White House plans for war with Iran in the wake of the sacking of Admiral William Fallon, only a select few politicians and their minions will be privy to a plan that it is arresting in its boldness and predicated on the establishment of an ironclad pretext for the forthcoming US hard-power attack on the regime in Tehran.

Military veterans to deliver citizen arrest warrants for Bush and Cheney
by Kathlyn Stone

Global Research, March 20, 2008

Backed by family members and supporters all across the nation, U.S. military veterans will serve citizen arrest warrants for George Bush and Dick Cheney tomorrow in Washington, D.C.

The warrants are "for multiple violations of the Constitution and international war crimes," according to a statement issued by Veterans for Peace, a national organization of men and women who served in wars and military conflicts beginning with the Spanish Civil War in 1936 through the present war in Iraq.

"It has long been apparent that our Constitution is under attack and has been deliberately and relentlessly undermined by domestic enemies -- indeed, by our highest government officials -- who took the same oath we did and have violated it by waging a war of aggression and committing war crimes in Iraq," according to Veterans for Peace president, Elliott Adams in explaining the warrants.

The warrants will be delivered to the National Archives which houses the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.

Poles Protest against planned U.S. Military Bases

A big manifestation against locating American military bases in Poland took place in Warsaw on Saturday, March 15th. Leftwing activists, Greens and anti-militarists marched from The Presidential Palace to the Polish Parliament and then the U.S. embassy. Together they called the Polish president and prime minister to withdraw their support for the USA governments' plans for building an other American military installation on European soil.

Grzegorz Ilkowski (The Initiative Against War) said the American imperial policy is now the major threat to peace and that groups from all around Europe and the world must mobilize to face this threat.

Young Socialists (member-observer status in the Party of the European Left), who are presently leading a country-wide anti-militarism campaign, were also present in Warsaw that day. Adrian Zandberg, in his speech, expressed his belief that the fact that most Polish politicians [who] support the concept of locating American military bases in Poland against the will of most of their own citizens will strengthen the anti-militarism movement and actions like these must continue in the future. Katarzyna Matuszewska, reminded that the European Left condemns the process of further arms race in Europe and will attempt to block the acceptance from EU countries for this process.

Tibet Uprising & US Government Funding

There are hints all around that the current action by exile-Tibetans and some folks in Tibet is, at least partly, a U.S. financed attempt of another 'color revolution'.

BBC tries to legitimise a "Tibetan government in exile"

Posted on MEDIALENS by RMS, Email on March 17, 2008

All morning BBC news has been quoting a "Tibetan government in exile" when no such body exists, apart from [in] the minds of a group of self appointed Tibetan exiles headed by a despot millionaire.

Not one single country in the world recognises such a government including the UN. Who ever elected this "government"? When and where? As usual the BBC has rushed to sensationalise the orchestrated events of the last few days and dredge up the usual "experts" to give their jaundiced views.

It was refreshing however to listen to Professor Barry Southman on R4 this morning who spelt out his views on the reality of the situation regarding Tibet. He made it clear that the trouble has been fermented mainly by the violent "Tibetan Youth Organisation" based in the US and largely funded by the CIA. He cited an interview in the "Chicago tribune" by this group who said they would use the Beijing Olympics to stir up trouble including the "use of violence".

Prof Southman also stated the situation in Tibet was complex, there is a lot of ethnic tension between Tibetan merchants who are opposed to Han Merchants, Chinese Muslim Merchants and others. Also groups of monks have been engaged in activities associated with the violence. Most of the businesses that have been attacked and those killed were Chinese.

He also said quite sensibly, as many on this board have said, that creating smaller "independent states" (e.g.Kosovo) leads to violence and instability. He made it clear that no government in the world has ever recognised an independent Tibet including the UN.

The claims of cultural ethnic cleansing made by the Dalai Lama he said were wildly exaggerated and he has seen "no evidence of it at all".

The BBC has reported Dalai Lama claims of 100 people killed by the Chinese police, there is not a single shred of evidence of this, where are the bodies? After all a few days ago the BBC was proudly broadcasting pictures from Tibet, if there were a 100 bodies lying about does not any one think that someone, somewhere, would have been taking photos?

Michael Prysner's testimony at Winter Soldier
Watch the video below!

"We were told we were fighting terrorism...The real terrorism was this occupation... I threw families onto the street in Iraq only to come home and see families thrown onto the street in this country in this tragic and unnecessary foreclosure crisis... Our enemy is not 5,000 miles away: they are right here at home." -- Michael Prysner

In the must-watch video below, Iraq war veteran and ANSWER organizer Michael Prysner retells his horrifying responsibilities as an occupation soldier, and denounces the Army officers who used racism and bigotry in order to justify the oppression of the Iraqi people. Prysner's eloquent and compelling testimony cuts through the Pentagon's propaganda and exposes the truth of the Iraq occupation -- please circulate this video to your friends, family members, classmates, co-workers and listservs.

Prysner joined the U.S. Army at age 17 and in March 2003, he was deployed to northern Iraq. He remained there for 12 months. Bearing witness to the many crimes of the occupation, Prysner became a staunch opponent of the war, and in 2005 he began organizing and speaking out against it. The four-day Winter Soldier event was organized by Iraq War Veterans Against the War.

Faith communities encouraged to seek the truth about Iraq

By Ekklesia staff writers
16 Mar 2008

Faith communities in Britain have been urged to ask the British government tough questions about abuses in Iraq and to seek a public enquiry to determine what has happened in the years succeeding the illegal 2003 invasion and occupation.

The call came in a meeting on ethics and values aimed particularly at churches and other faith groups, addressed by leading human rights lawyer Phil Shiner, an active Christian, who has been pursuing a range of ground-breaking legal cases highlighting horrifying examples of abuse against Iraqi citizens and suggesting patterns of personal and institutional complicity far in excess of anything discussed in the general UK media. [Warning: disturbing material follows]

Mr Shiner said that the general perception was that while the United States was culpable for well known abuses at Abu Ghraib, the assault on Fallujah and elsewhere, evidence of the involvement of British regiments (not just “a few rotten apples”) in extrajudicial abuse and killings suggested that this was far from the truth.

The widely circulated Abu Ghraib images showed male Iraqis forced into sexual positions with one another, into simulated oral sex, being threatened by soldiers' punches or of US soldiers alongside what are either badly abused or dead Iraqis.

“Most UK citizens seem to believe that we would never do such things. Nothing could be further from the truth,” said Mr Shiner, the Law Society’s current ‘solicitor of the year’, and head of the team at Public Interest Lawyers (PIL). “The photographs from the Camp Breadbasket court martial show very similar patterns of abuse.”

Mr Shiner described evidence he had investigated concerning appalling incidents preceding the death of a man called Baha Mousa. UK soldiers, he said, flushed dirty toilet water over male Iraqis. Later, at the same military facility, they photographed each other punching hooded detainees, some of whom were threatened with execution. One was offered release in exchange for sex with his sister.”

“The litany of sexual and religious humiliation is endless,” he declared. “There appears to be no material difference between the two forces, US and UK, when it came to degrading treatment. Worse still, there are now witness statements prepared for UK High Court proceedings by myself and my colleague Martyn Day [of Leigh Day & Co], which suggest that, in May 2004, UK soldiers in Abu Naji facility may have executed up to 20 Iraqis, tortured another nine, and subjected some of the 20 dead to unspeakable atrocities before final dispatch.”

Mr Shiner claimed that “the systemic failings that underpin these violations go to the top of government, the civil service and the military. We had a written policy allowing stressing and hooding, and our interrogators were trained to do so. Scores of Iraqis now complain of torture, abuse, and killings in UK detention facilities.”

However, he said the answer was not blame and retribution, but the implementation of the highest standards of protection enshrined in the Human Rights Act, the United Nations Convention on Torture and other international provisions. This meant recognising morality and human solidarity over political and military expediency.

Methodist minister David Moore, who has many years of ecumenical and inter-faith work, and is also a sculptor and artist, asked how people of faith and hope – whatever there religious or non-religious convictions – could respond to such horror practically and spiritually.

In the reflection and worship preceding the meeting, the Rev Murdoch McKenzie from the Iona Community lead the gathering in an affirmation created by US Christians calling for a withdrawal of the Western military presence in Iraq, the creation of an international solution based on the needs and aspirations of the Iraqi people, active support for the psychological, spiritual and material needs of those damage by war and occupation, and a change of heart by both faith bodies and politicians.

The meeting talked about action that can be taken within faith communities at local and national level in Britain, both within particular traditions and at an inter-faith level. Church leaders will shortly be encouraged to raise the issues of a review of British actions in Iraq with Gordon Brown and the government. Though the issues are tough, the interest of governance with integrity depends upon facing the truth, participants agreed.

Simon Barrow, co-director of the religion and society think tank Ekklesia, who chaired the meeting, commented: “Churches and faith communities in Britain should have a clear and continuing interest in truth-telling, justice and peacemaking. The government needs to recognise the moral, political and legal impulse toward a public enquiry on UK detention policy, patterns of abuse, what standards should apply and how to ensure that what has happened in Iraq never happens again."

Detailed material from this meeting will appear shortly on Ekklesia. See also:

The Totalitarianizing of Britain

MI5 seeks powers to trawl records in new terror hunt --Counter-terrorism experts call it a 'force multiplier': an attack combining slaughter and electronic chaos. Now Britain's security services want total access to commuters' travel records to help them meet the threat

16 Mar 2008: Millions of commuters could have their private movements around cities secretly monitored under new counter-terrorism powers being sought by the security services. Records of journeys made by people using smart cards that allow 17 million Britons to travel by underground, bus and train with a single swipe at the ticket barrier are among a welter of private information held by the state to which MI5 and police counter-terrorism officers want access in order to help identify patterns of suspicious behaviour.

Venezuela: U.S. Government is “Terrorist Government Par Excellence”

Caracas, March 12, 2008, ( - The United States government is "the terrorist government par excellence," Venezuela's representative in the Organisation of American States (OAS), Jorge Valero said in response to Washington's threats to list Venezuela as a "terrorist" nation for supposedly funding the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC).

"This is an aberration, an absolutely stupid thing to say from the government of Mr Bush, which is the terrorist government par excellence, that practices state terrorism, that has invaded Iraq and Afghanistan without respect for international law, that commits genocidal practices in various parts of the world, that has invaded Latin American and Caribbean countries, that aims to present itself as the moral conscience of the world," Valero said in an interview with state-owned television station VTV.

U.S. President George W. Bush today accused Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez of backing "terrorists" in neighboring Colombia and using his country's oil wealth to fuel an anti-American campaign across Latin America.

Bush made the comments in an address to the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Washington as he called on the U.S. congress to ratify the US-Colombia free trade agreement. Democrats in the Congress have stalled the passage of the agreement pointing to Colombia's appalling human rights record.

Bush argued the accord is "pivotal" to countering the influence of Chavez throughout Latin America. Since it was first elected in 1998, the Chavez government has used billions of dollars of oil revenue to fund social programs that provide free education and healthcare to the poor and has spearheaded a continental wide revolt against neo-liberalism and U.S. domination.

"As it tries to expand its influence in Latin America, the regime claims to promote social justice. In truth its agenda amounts to little more than empty promises and a thirst for power," Bush claimed in his speech.

Bush also criticized Chavez's response to Colombia's March 1 military incursion into Ecuador that among 21 others killed Raul Reyes, the FARC second in command, only days after the guerrilla group had unilaterally released four prisoners to Venezuelan authorities.

"The president of Venezuela praised the terrorist leader as a good revolutionary and ordered his troops to the Colombian border," the US president said.

Twenty-one archconservative Republican lawmakers including Connie Mack and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen from Florida are calling for Venezuela to be placed on the U.S. State Department list of countries that sponsor terrorism, claiming that Venezuela has close links with the FARC.

The Colombian government last week released excerpts of documents supposedly found on laptops belonging to the FARC seized during the Colombian military's raid in Ecuador, claiming they showed that the Venezuelan government had recently made a payment of $300 million to the guerrillas.

However, the only reference to the alleged $300 million reads; "... With relation to the 300, which from now on we will call "dossier," efforts are now going forward at the instructions of the boss to the cojo [slang term for ‘cripple'], which I will explain in a separate note. Let's call the boss Ángel, and the cripple Ernesto." It does not mention Chavez or the Venezuelan government.

The Colombian government has reportedly called in experts from Interpol to analyze the veracity of the documents.

The Venezuelan government dismissed the claims saying the only contact it has had with the guerrillas is in negotiations to secure the release of FARC prisoners held in the jungle for years and facilitate a humanitarian accord.

Countries such as France and Ecuador have also engaged in similar negotiations with the guerrillas. Recently declassified State Department documents also revealed that a U.S. diplomatic mission led by Philip T. Chicola, then director of the State Department's Office of Andean Affairs, met secretly in Costa Rica with FARC leaders, Reyes and Olga Marín in 1998, despite the U.S. government's classification of the guerrillas as a "terrorist" organization.

Colombia's military attack sparked a diplomatic crisis with Venezuela and Ecuador last week, however tensions eased after an agreement, proposed by Venezuela, was adopted and the three heads of state shook hands at the Rio Group Summit last Friday.

The agreement rejected the violation of Ecuadorian sovereignty, recognized Colombia's apology for its military aggression, and committed the signatories to ensure that such an incident never happens again "under any circumstances."

Ecuador and Venezuela are calling for the next meeting of the OAS on March 17, to ratify the Rio Group Summit resolution.

Valero argued it would be "difficult for the U.S. government to oppose such a resolution. "I don't believe the United States has sufficient strength to crush the will of the Rio Group countries," he asserted.

If the Bush administration opposes the motion, "The United States will be shown up as a factor that disturbs Latin American and Caribbean unity, that obstructs hemispheric relations, which aims to impose doctrines that are alien to our continent and have been rejected in the Rio Group, for example, the so-called doctrine of legitimate preventative defense," he declared.

Jorge Pinon, a researcher from the Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American studies at the University of Miami and former president of Amoco Oil Latin America said "calling Venezuela a terrorist state would give the United States a legal reason to impose sanctions."

However, Daniel Erikson of the Inter-American Dialogue in Washington argued it was unlikely that the U.S. would brand Venezuela as a terrorist sponsor as Venezuela is the fourth-largest oil supplier to the U.S.

Sanctions "would cause damage both to the U.S. and Venezuela, because the countries have such strong economic ties," he added.

Dan Hellinger, a political scientist and Venezuela expert at Webster University in St. Louis, said the Republicans are "trying to take advantage of the moment after this blowup with Colombia to try to see if they can cement into law a more hostile policy toward Venezuela."

Venezuelan Information Minister Andres Izarra, warned of a stepped up U.S. campaign against Venezuela after the Rio Group Summit thwarted Washington's efforts to isolate the oil rich country. "They are searching for new ways to attack ... and move forward with their plan to finish with the Bolivarian Revolution," as Chavez's socialist movement is known, Izarra said.
