Why do we Fight?
Amerika's Addiction to War

watch this!


Ike Saw It Coming
by Bob Herbert

Early in the documentary film "Why We Fight," Wilton Sekzer, a retired New York City police officer whose son was killed in the World Trade Center attack, describes his personal feelings in the immediate aftermath of Sept. 11.

"Somebody had to pay for this," he says. "Somebody had to pay for 9/11. ... I wanna see their bodies stacked up for what they did. For taking my son."

Lost in the agony of his grief, Mr. Sekzer wanted revenge. He wanted the government to go after the bad guys, and when the government said the bad guys were in Iraq, he didn't argue.

For most of his life Mr. Sekzer was a patriot straight out of central casting. His view was always "If the bugle calls, you go." When he was 21 he was a gunner on a helicopter in Vietnam. He didn't question his country's motives. He was more than willing to place his trust in the leadership of the nation he loved.

"Why We Fight," a thoughtful, first-rate movie directed by Eugene Jarecki, is largely about how misplaced that trust has become. The central figure in the film is not Mr. Jarecki, but Dwight Eisenhower, the Republican president who had been the supreme Allied commander in Europe in World War II, and who famously warned us at the end of his second term about the profound danger inherent in the rise of the military-industrial complex.

Ike warned us, but we didn't listen. That's the theme the movie explores.

Eisenhower delivered his farewell address to a national television and radio audience in January 1961. "This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience," he said. He recognized that this development was essential to the defense of the nation. But he warned that "we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications."

"The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist," he said. "We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes." It was as if this president, who understood war as well or better than any American who ever lived, were somehow able to peer into the future and see the tail of the military-industrial complex wagging the dog of American life, with inevitably disastrous consequences.

The endless billions to be reaped from the horrors of war are a perennial incentive to invest in the war machine and to keep those wars a-coming. "His words have unfortunately come true," says Senator John McCain in the film. "He was worried that priorities are set by what benefits corporations as opposed to what benefits the country."

The way you keep the wars coming is to keep the populace in a state of perpetual fear. That allows you to continue the insane feeding of the military-industrial complex at the expense of the rest of the nation's needs. "Before long," said Mr. Jarecki in an interview, "the military ends up so overempowered that the rest of your national life has been allowed to atrophy."

In one of the great deceptive maneuvers in U.S. history, the military-industrial complex (with George W. Bush and Dick Cheney as chairman and C.E.O., respectively) took its eye off the real enemy in Afghanistan and launched the pointless but far more remunerative war in Iraq.

If you want to get a chill, just consider the tragic chaos in present-day Iraq (seven G.I.'s were killed on the day I went to see "Why We Fight") and then listen to Susan Eisenhower in the film recalling a quotation attributed to her grandfather: "God help this country when somebody sits at this desk who doesn't know as much about the military as I do."

The military-industrial complex has become so pervasive that it is now, as one of the figures in the movie notes, all but invisible. Its missions and priorities are poorly understood by most Americans, and frequently counter to their interests.

Near the end of the movie, Mr. Sekzer, the New York cop who lost his son on Sept. 11, describes his reaction to President Bush's belated acknowledgment that "we've had no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved" in the Sept. 11 attacks.

"What the hell did we go in there for?" Mr. Sekzer asks.

Unable to hide his bitterness, he says: "The government exploited my feelings of patriotism, of a deep desire for revenge for what happened to my son. But I was so insane with wanting to get even, I was willing to believe anything."

Iran's last Hope?

" Though Iran's wish to possess nuclear weapons remains a speculation, it would use such weapons for self-defence, Victor Dubovitskiy, professor of historical sciences and expert at the geopolitical sciences centre in Tajikistan, maintains."

Let's hope that Dubovitskiy's advice is taken soon by Russia's leaders as there doesn't appear to be much time left before the West's threatened nuclear aerial attack on Iran in March.

"Dubovitskiy suggests that nuclear" umbrellas" should be formed between Russia, China, Iran, and possibly India as a solution to the current Iranian crisis through such bodies as the CSTO and the SCO (Collective Security Treaty Organization and Shanghai Cooperation Organization)."

Such a solution may now be the only way left for Iran to protect herself against the ruthlessness of the Bush/Cheney killers. Given the choice between losing her nuclear independence to Russia or putting at serious risk her populations to the awful consequences of an attack from the West we must hope that the Iranian leadership puts compassion before all else.

For those who still refuse to believe that the Bush/Cheney killers aren't really serious about using nukes in their next war, read Michel Chossudovsky's new article, Is the Bush Administration Planning a Nuclear Holocaust?

We're dealing with very desperate characters here in a White House that was hijacked on purpose so that such crimes could be perpetrated.

Anyone who still doubts that is seriously out of touch with reality.

A Waking Nightmare

You come down, one morning, and switch on the tv set.

While preparing the coffee you hear the voice of the newscaster announce the breaking news that next March George Bush is planning to conduct an aerial assault against Iran using both conventional and nuclear weapons.

"Nuclear weapons? Did I hear that right?" you say to yourself, spilling the coffee on the carpet as you rush from the kitchen to the tv lounge.

"It is estimated," continues the poker-faced announcer, "that the resulting deaths among the population will be somewhere between a few hundred to ten thousand or more."

"Clouds of radioactive contamination are expected to spread across western and southern Asia and, depending on the prevailing winds, might well blow westward into central and western Europe. People are advised not to panic but, as a precaution, to prepare staying indoors for several days after the attack is announced."

Stunned, you try to ring up the tv station switch-board for confirmation, only to realize that the switch-board is already jammed with calls. You try switching channels but everywhere there's nothing but the same unreal, plastic tv-land garbage.

You decide not to go to work but to call up everyone you know to ask them if they'd heard the news. Something had to be done and fast. Such an attack by any country against another would not only be criminal but would be the lowest and most heinous act of genocide any human could possibly perpetrate upon others.


Well, here's the good news. You're not going to ever hear that newscast be made.

The bad news?

The reason being that the newspapers, tv networks and radio stations (mainstream media or MSM) are all being effectively silenced as I write this piece in late February, only weeks before such an attack might be carried out.

None of them would dare to blow the whistle and risk their jobs, livelihoods or maybe even their lives. Even the so-called Anti War Movement has been lulled into staying quiet by the countless gate-keepers of the Left who, today, infest the internet with their psy-ops and disinformation sites.

When you would expect the most terrible warnings to be shrilly screamed from the roof-tops by the usual suspects what you're currently hearing is ... next to damn all nothing.

And yet, we are only weeks or days from such a nuclear Armageddon.

The above is not just a piece of sensationalist fiction. It is based on current US National Security Strategy and is, as I write, being actively prepared for.

In its next war, the people who have brought you the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) are, just to make things more breath-takingly exciting, throwing-in the additional horror of 'low-yield' nuclear weapons to be actually used, of course, for the protection of the US homeland from terrorists and other assorted criminals.

The country to have been selected in the 21st Century for the first nuclear attack by the USA since 1945 is ... I-ran!

Jorge Hirsch, Professor of Physics at UCLA, San Diego has just published an extremely informative piece on the subject, America and Iran: at the Brink of the Abyss. You'll find it in his column at Anti War Com. Others such as Michel Chossudovsky have written profusely on the subject. Michel Chossudovsky, is a Professor of Economics at the University of Ottawa as well as the Director of the Center for Research on Globalization, a well-respected website read by millions across the planet and linked into reference libraries world-over.

There's no point in my going over the territories they have already covered. I would strongly advise anyone seeking more information on the subject to visit the pages of both Anti War Com and Global Research Canada. If you go back to this blog's January archives, you will find a great deal more information on the subject as well as some practical pointers to what you, as an individual, can do to alert others to what is going on behind the conspiracy of silence and current news black-out.

As Jorge Hirsch points out, none of this could happen if the public of the United States and other countries were alerted to the true facts. In the same way that the US Government kept quiet about the dropping of nuclear bombs on Japan in 1945, sixty years later it is doing so over its intended nuclear attack on Iran.

Be in no doubt. The attack has already been prepared.

Prepared with the full collusion of its key allies such as the United Kingdom and others. A war-criminal since the illegal attack on Iraq, Tony Blair with his cabinet cabal, Brown, John Reid and Jack Straw, all whose hands are indelibly stained with the blood of that killing spree, are actively complicit in the various diplomatic manouevrings that have gone on at the IAEA and United Nations as a cosmetic to justify an attack that was planned (as part of the PNAC) an awful long time ago.

There is still time to change the course of history. But what it will take is the many ordinary folk such as yourself to do everything you can to get the information out, to blow the whistle before it's too late. The world has been taken over by a cabal of killers, a crime syndicate as recently described by US Congresswoman, Cynthia McKinney.

If it is to be saved it will require the rest of us to do what we can. In the case of the Military that could well require you to disobey orders if you believe those orders to be a crime.

And what greater crime could there be than a nuclear attack on a defenceless people?

The time to act is Now. The future of humanity depends upon it.

If you write a blog, please put this information on it. Using the Net may be the only way we can break the silence!

"Cognitive dissonance is a psychological phenomenon which refers to the discomfort felt at a discrepancy between what you already know or believe, and new information or interpretation. It therefore occurs when there is a need to accommodate new ideas, and it may be necessary for it to develop so that we become 'open' to them."

Five years since the stealing of the 2000 US presidential election and nearly two years since a repeated computerized electoral theft in 2004, the vast majority of the US electorate have not yet woken up to the reality that their country has been hijacked by a small cabal of militarists who make Dr Strangelove look a cuddly moderate.

Certainly, the overall responsibility for the concealment of this frightening state-of-affairs must be laid at the door of the international mainstream media (MSM) which since the end of the ideological Cold War of the 'eighties found itself lacking a serious contender for replacing the old Soviet Union as the scapegoat for all the evils of western capitalism. The 'Red Menace' was a convenient bogeyman for western governments and provided a rationale for the otherwise unjustifiable spending of colossal amounts of public monies on a parasitical Military-Industrial complex.

Once the 'Red Menace' disappeared over the horizon it had to be replaced with another propaganda big lie: 'Terrorism' which quickly morphed into 'the Threat from Islamic Terrorism' and which, thanks to utterly cynical political con-men such as Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Blair and Howard, has now become 'the threat from Islam' in a so called 'clash of civilizations.'

Journalists, too, can be war criminals and many of them, in the US, UK and elsewhere became de facto war criminals by supporting an illegal war against Irak. Having once decided to take that course it was natural that journalists should embrace the 'war of civilizations' as a rationale for what would otherwise only be described as psychopathic behaviour.

The behaviour of both politicians and journalists are essentially tribal. And when tribes go to war their leaders need to embellish their belligerence with rationales and big lies in order to mentally bamboozle and bully everyone into going along with them. Hence the use of emotionally coercive words like 'threat' and 'clash' where, in reality, both the threat and the clash are nothing more than of an artificially manufactured nature. Manufactured to manipulate the lumpen public into doing whatever their 'leaders' might wish. Manufacture which leads to the artificial creation of a consensus reality which has no basis of truth outside its own bubble.

In a rapidly-changing world of increasing competition for a finite amount of natural 'resources' we find ourselves in a time of Resource Wars with Oil being presently at the very top of the list. Now, there are very few folk around who are dumb enough to believe that the invasion of Irak and the impending attack on Iran are nothing more than a continuation of the current Resource Wars, wars being re-packaged and sold us as a 'Perpetual War against Terrorism'. So how is it that so many of them appear to have bought the WMD story, in the case of Irak, and the 'Nuclear Threat' story in the case of Iran?

Far from being a nuclear threat, Iran is today in danger of nuclear extinction from the very regimes that project their own belligerence on this non-nuclear country. The US and Israeli regimes, so far, have taken the leading part in threatening Iran. And, as usual, Washington's quisling, Tony Blair and his cohort Jack Straw, have done so much of the diplomatic machinations required to get others to toe the line in order to use the United Nations as a pretence for what is a fait accompli.

That fait accompli was decided upon by a semi-secret cabal of warmongers described as 'neo-conservatives' when they prepared their blueprint for total world domination, the Project for a New American Century. The neocon's mentor and guru, Leo Strauss, based his machiavellian ideology on the belief that humans are basically evil and need to be governed. In order to govern effectively one has to create an enemy and then focus public attention on that enemy. Through doing so a state of perpetual war can be justified and this, in turn, would ensure that the public remain manipulable and under total control.

When the neocons' puppet, George Bush, Jr describes Americans as "a warlike nation" what he is really saying is that his country has been taken over in a coup d'etat by a cabal of warmongers. Warmongers who despise everything that the US Constitution and Bill of Rights stands for and who have every intention of turning the USA into a totalitarian state. And in five years they have already done most of the work necessary to dismantle the constitutional structures of checks and balances which were deliberately created by the founding fathers of the USA precisely in order to protect it from becoming a dictatorship.

All this has been performed in a lightning blitzkrieg which has left the public stunned into shock and awe, unable to believe that good old Uncle Sam could have so rapidly become a serial-killer gangster out to control and destroy everyone and everything he cannot control. How to reconcile this terrible nightmare with all the assuring fantasies of the American Dream so effectively sold to its own public and the rest of the world over so many decades? Surely we went to Irak to topple an evil dictator. And we might have to use force to stop the Mad Mullahs from developing an evil Islamic bomb.

Cognitive dissonance: "a psychological phenomenon which refers to the discomfort felt at a discrepancy between what you already know or believe, and new information or interpretation."

Is mass cognitive dissonance leading to the creation of a prison planet ruled by barbarians the like of which this world has never known before? The mass trance under which so many have been put will not only lead to the creation of a perpetual war culture but to a way of life devoid of humane feelings towards all the other countless human beings who will be cruelly and inevitably sacrificed in order that we might survive.

This is the reality to which we must all wake up and 'smell the coffee' now. For if we do not it is only just a very short time before we, too, become the new nazis' blood-sacrifice.

Issued by the MUJCA-Planetization Truth Alliance

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for all people to dissolve the political bands which have separated them from, and subjugated them to, one another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the equal and united station to which the Laws of Nature and of God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to Union.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are: Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; a direct, unmediated relationship with the Creator unimpeded by governmental or religious bureaucrats; an economy free from the tyranny of usury and monopoly currency; and full planetary citizenship entailing the right to travel anywhere on earth without hindrance by petty tyrants and despots who falsely claim dominion over lands and resources that belong to all.

--That to secure these rights, limited governments are instituted and dissolved among men, temporarily and provisionally deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness, but taking care to limit its powers in accordance with the maxim “That government is best which governs least.” Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism—as with the modern finance-dominated nation-state with its ever-more-deadly weapons and its ever-bloodier attempts to impose a “New World Order” of elitist tyranny—it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such an Order, and to provide new guards for their future security.

—Such has been the patient sufferance of the people of Earth; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of America and Great Britain [George II] is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states, and over the rest of the planet as well. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has conducted a Reign of Terror, behaving in a most suspicious manner during and after the atrocities of September 11th, 2001, and preventing any honest investigation of those atrocities from taking place.

He has presided over other highly suspicious incidents of domestic violence including: US-military-anthrax attacks on the congressional Democrats who were resisting his pressure to not investigate 9/11; the apparent murder-by-plane-crash of his most dangerous opponent, Paul Wellstone; and the murderous threats that forced Senator Dayton, who had just denounced NORAD’s outrageous 9/11 lies, to flee Washington and announce his retirement.

In short, he has used murder and the threat of murder against members of his own legislative bodies, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has used murder and the threat of murder against people of other lands, including Iraq, Iran, and Venezuela, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has used torture and the threat of torture against American citizens and the citizens of other lands, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has refused his assent to the Bill of Rights, of all laws the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has repeatedly terrorized the nation and the world with puerile nightmare fantasies of murderous “evildoers,” most of whom, if they exist at all, seem to be on the payroll of his own and others’ intelligence services—as an instrument and arm to terrorize the world and its inhabitants through the psychological-operations ("psy-ops")propaganda driven global “bogeyman” and constant and never-ending sophisticated false flag and “suicide” bombing operations.

He has stripped the powers of the Representative Houses repeatedly, especially their war powers.

He is threatening martial law in the event of a bird flu epidemic—an event that is highly improbable absent a germ-warfare fake terror attack like the anthrax attacks—and is forcing upon us unnecessary and potentially harmful vaccinations in response to this bogus threat.

He has devoted most of his energy to lining the pockets of the worst kleptocrats in the history of the world, including those behind the Enron debacle, the $500 billion Savings and Loan scam, the $1 trillion-per-year CIA-dominated illegal drug trade, and the unexplained and untraced disappearance of trillions of dollars from the budget of the Pentagon.

He has given Corporations the complete freedom to act with impunity and enjoyment of complete immunity from the harm they are bestowing on the Earth and her peoples. In both the area of environment and our bodies, Corporations with more money than sense and a government with more greed than concern for the welfare of the people are harming the environment and are now conspiring to take away our right to control our bodies, to keep them safe, and if harmed, to seek recompense from the corporation that harmed us.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States from traveling in a free and enjoyable manner, instituting ludicrous “security procedures” to harass airline passengers and those crossing national borders, and justifying these measures by pointing to a “terrorist attack” that appears to have been carried out by his own security services.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by claiming the right to murder, torture, or “disappear” anyone he chooses, without even a semblance of due process of law, simply by dubbing that person a “Terrorist.”

He has made more and more Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their Offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries; and he has intimidated the few remaining Judges he does not own outright.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices such as “Homeland Security,” and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the consent of our legislatures, and sent those standing armies to New Orleans not to help the flood victims, but to impede rescue efforts and protect the Property of the Rich and to impose martial law as another instrument of State Terror.

He has, by staging an apparent 9/11 Reichstag Fire, affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with other corporate fascists to subject us to a plutocratic jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution and unacknowledged by our Laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us, and, under the auspices of FEMA, for planning to use those troops to impose a Tyranny in the event the “national emergency” which we are being constantly threatened with—and to make us comply to the imposition of more and suffocating tyranny that has misaligned us from our principles.

For protecting his fascist advisors, especially Rumsfeld and Cheney, from punishment for the thousands of Murders and Tortures of illegally-detained Muslim “prisoners” (in reality, innocent victims of state-terrorist kidnappings).

For running up an obscene deficit in Trade with all parts of the World, and an equally obscene and unprecedented deficit in Budget:

For imposing Wars on us without our Consent:

For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas, to a CIA-run torture gulag that stretches across many countries, to be sexually violated and murdered for pretended Offences:

For abolishing the free System of Anglo-American Laws with regard to those arbitrarily deemed “terrorists,” rendering an example and precedent for introducing the same absolute rule against the entire Population:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, especially the Bill of Rights, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For using violence, threats, and vote fraud against our own Legislatures, and usurping power, through Stolen or Fraudulent Elections, to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring all but the Super-Rich out of his Protection and waging Class War against us.

He has plundered the seas, abandoned our hurricane-ravaged Coasts, drowned our most historic and economically vital City, and destroyed the lives of our People.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign and corporate-fascist Mercenaries, to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Planetary Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to suffer Unspeakable Tortures and be imprisoned indefinitely without charges and without counsel.

He has launched murderous invasions of foreign lands that never threatened us, and thereby excited foreign insurrections against us.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Administration brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their Fear-Mongering to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our Settlement here, and our insistence of being treated as free and fearless Citizens. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common Kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of Justice and of Consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation from their tyranny, and our Union with all the peoples of this planet.

We, therefore, the Representatives of United Peoples of Earth, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by the Authority of the good People of this planet, solemnly publish and declare, That the “New American Century” inaugurated by the “New Pearl Harbor” of 9/11 is finished; That the era of the Nation State, of Corporate “Globalization,” of Petrodollar Hegemony, and of IMF/Federal Reserve Financial Tyranny, is over; That the era of rulers, states, armies and weapons is defunct; and that henceforth all human beings of this planet are Citizens of Earth, and not subjects of any nation or corporation or monopoly currency; and That given the Food Emergency that already exists, and may worsen with Resource Scarcity and Climate Change, that nuclear Swords henceforth be beaten into Ploughshares.

The Citizens of Earth hereby give notice that they will no longer be bound by King George’s Empire, nor by the tyrannous militarism of any other Nation State; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the US Dollar, the American Empire, the New World Order, or to the Flag, Currency, or Military Forces of any other nation; and that all political connection between them and the corporate-statist kleptocracy, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent Planetary Citizens, they have full Power to conclude Peace, contract Alliances, and establish Commerce among the people of Earth, and between this Planet and the people of such other Worlds as may one day choose to contact us, should they happen to notice any Signs of Intelligent Life—such as the overthrow of King George’s regime, and its replacement by a Planetary Union of Peoples, in accordance with the benign system of Planetization that eternally forms a more perfect union, establishes justice, insures domestic tranquillity, provides for the common defense, promotes the general welfare and forever secures the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. And for the support of this Declaration of Union, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

The Union of Peoples of the Earth

"The Greatest Battles are yet to be Won"

At last the truth behind the endless stream of 1984-type propaganda against Iran has finally emerged on the fringes of the British mainstream media (MSM). In the cover story of the current NEW STATESMAN, the well-respected investigative journalist, John Pilger, reveals how the recent manoeuvrings at the International Atomic Energy Authority and the incessant demonizing of Iran by washed-out quislings like Blair and his 'man-of straw' Foreign Secretary are nothing more than a campaign to prepare the public for another illegal war.

Pilger suggests that Blair suffers from unbalanced delusions, the type to which those of a shallow nature are particularly prone. I have always thought that behind Blair's false niceness there lies a thoroughly nasty psychopath, a "prick with no conscience". Not long ago, David Shayler, ex-MI5 whistle-blower revealed that during his days as an operative he came across a dossier revealing that Blair had been recruited by and worked for MI5. Posing as a fashionable leftie, Blair joined organizations like CND to befriend other activists and then shop them to the spooks.

When I read that I felt no surprise. Having played an active part in the Peace Movement in the 1980's, during which time I spent some considerable time researching Cold War organizations, I knew that young Labour politicians have been traditionally recruited by the secret services in order to infiltrate and divide the Labour Party in order to water-down and then rid it of any popular commitments its grass-roots constituency parties had secured towards, for example, unilateral nuclear disarmament. Commitments obtained through hard lobbying of the labour movement using the democratic process were finally trashed by the Party being infiltrated and hijacked by pro-NATO stooges, culminating in the infamous Gang of Four, Jenkins, Rodgers, Williams and Owen who, by breaking away from the Labour Party to form the short-lived Social Democratic Party (SDP) dealt a mortal blow from which Labour never recovered.

Having performed their task, a totally demoralized and direction-less Party was open to take-over by pseudo lefties such as Blair and his entourage who, unbeknownst, were actually secret-service spooks whose job it was to take control of the Party and put it in the hands of Washington's Military-Industrial-Complex. In this way came about that most unlikely Axis of Deceit and Evil between a 'New Labour' Premier and a Nazi masquerading as a Christian Fundamentalist. In this obscene relationship it was left to Blair & Co to conduct much of the diplomatic work needed to spread the War virus throughout the rest of Europe and elsewhere. A task which he and his cohorts have carried-out successfully.

The sad thing is that he has been able to screw us all and get away with it for quite so long as he has. And the responsibility for that has to be taken by a Left opposition so weakened and demoralized from an 18 year Tory onslaught on the British Welfare State that it never recovered. So, almost a decade later, the Left opposition remain in total disarray, unable to do anything to defend itself from having its face rubbed into the ground by Neocon jack-boots.

How things have changed.

Forty years ago, a candidate for the US presidency, Senator Barry Goldwater, blew his chances of attaining high office by bragging that he would not hesitate to use tactical nuclear weapons against the then Soviet Union. That really freaked the US electorate who voted-in Lyndon Johnson. Twenty-five years ago, when the USA through it's cats-paw NATO announced the deployment of medium-range nuclear Cruise and Pershing missiles in what it called a 'European Theatre of War' there was such great public reaction as to lead, almost overnight, to the blossoming of a huge international peace movement. The largest movement of its kind in recorded history.

Twenty five years on and what we have is a President --if that's what you call a terrorist who hi-jacked the White House by fixing two presidential elections-- who has authorized the use of nuclear weapons in a first-strike, 'pre-emptive' attack on any country that the US Pentagon might decide to take out. A war-strategy most likely to be used, in the near future, against Iran. Twenty five years on and where are the voices of protest you might expect from the Left?

What happened? Where did they all go? Into early retirement?

Has the 'Anti-War' Movement, as it now calls itself , given up? Run out of energy and ideas? Has it become infiltrated by Government spooks or is its inability to stand up to fight another battle --the most crucial one yet-- a silent acknowledgement of defeat?

We have the Internet now. A tremendous vehicle to get out information lightning fast. No more need of slaving away hours over a clapped-out old mimeograph. Go back to the cartoon at the top of this article. It was included in the second bulletin published by the famous Women of Greenham Common. A bulletin that travelled across the world and inflamed the hearts of countless folk, women and men. I know it did because I can proudly tell you that it was I who had the privilege to put their bulletin together, type it up, pick that cartoon, have the whole thing printed and taken by motor-bike to the Camp for delivery.

Oh, I can tell you more of the things we did, the initiatives we took to set the world alight with that Peace Movement! Maybe another day.

But why I draw your attention to that picture is this. If a group of disparate hobbits could have got together to achieve the wondrous miracle that our collective efforts led to then we can do it again.


That is why I am calling to you directly, whoever you are and wherever you live on our beautiful, blue planet. In the name of everything you hold precious and holy in your life, prepare yourself now to take part in the greatest battle that humanity has ever had to fight. Prepare yourself now, not for war but to make Peace. Peace with yourself and with your brothers and sisters all over our planet. Prepare yourself for a struggle not just in your interest, but in the name of all our ancestors who had to struggle for what we have now.

Declare yourself to be a Planetary Citizen and take the message of Peace out into your community. Warn others of the danger. Tell them how the evil Bush/Cheney junta and their assorted minions are preparing a Nuclear War. Have the courage to speak your truth, to demand that these evil warmongers should be stopped, arrested if necessary to be tried for their war-crimes. Do not allow yourself to be bullied into silence. There are many out there just waiting for someone to come along and blow the whistle.

Be that someone before it is too late!

Ex-U.N. Inspector, Scott Ritter, is one of the latest Net whistle-blowers to warn the world that the Bush/Cheney junta has already committed itself to attack Iran and that nuclear weapons will be used.

You would think that anyone with a semblance of political savvy about them will long-ago have heard the war-drums start to beat and the meaning of their message.

You would think so but you would be wrong.

The silence emanating from the mainstream media about the real nuclear threat -not from Iran but against it- is to be expected. The MSM has its own corporate interests to serve and part of it is to cover up the true nazi-like nature of the Washington junta and its European quislings such as Blair and Merkel.

Despite two stolen U.S. presidential elections, you won't read a word in the MSM about that crime. At least, not while the thieves who hi-jacked the White House are in power and that could be forever, given that 80% of the U.S. voting system is now electronic with no paper-trail to record accuracy.

The world is now under the jack-boot of a new form of Hitlerism where even anti-semitism has been resurrected against not Jews but Muslims. The recent controversy, deliberately started by a Danish newspaper to inflame racist feelings, is only the latest of an endless stream of insults being hurled by the Straussian extreme-right at their chosen victim.

In a world where White is Right and so is Might, the darker races must be reminded, once and for all, of their inherent inferiority.

Through terror.

And you ain't seen nothing yet because what this is all leading up to is a nuclear blitzkrieg where countless 'rag-heads' are going to be sacrificed. Not in gas-chambers but in the hell of another 'Shock and Awe' holocaust whose finale will be the raising of the Beast's radioactive mushroom-clouds over one of the most ancient civilizations on Earth, Persia.

But who considers the real price that humanity is now being asked to pay every time someone fills their fuel tank with the Earth's blood? Better not to think about it. Shut it out of the mind, no time to think about such things in such a busy world, too many things to do!

Well, just wait and see.

When the mushroom-clouds rise in the East, let that be a sign to all the little lemmings of the true depravity of what we call civilization.

As for all those, the 'Antiwar' Left and its gate-keepers, who had known for some time of the Beast's need for an ultimate blood-sacrifice but, in their cowardice, did nothing to warn their fellows let them forever hang their heads in the terrible knowledge of having committed the ultimate treachery against the evolution of their own species: to have remained silent when they knew what was to come.

"For the Triumph of Evil, it is only necessary for the Good to remain Silent." --Edmund Burke

"Think for yourself. Question authority.

Throughout human history, as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are, or where we're going in this ocean of chaos, it has been the authorities: the political, the religious, the educational authorities, who have attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rule, regulations.

Informing, forming in our minds an inner view of reality.

To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to immerse yourself in a state of vulnerable open-mindedness-- chaotic, confused vulnerability to which you owe yourself.

Think for yourself. Question authority."

-Timothy Leary

For some time today I found myself locked out of gaining access to my own site here. Some of you will have received a mailing from me appealing for help.

No sooner had I sent out the appeal but the site was back on again.

The curious thing was that during the lock-out I checked several other Blogger sites which were all accessible.

Due to the particularly controversial character of my recent postings and Google's recent agreement to block Chinese dissidents' sites the thought did go through my mind that someone at Google had read my site's sub-header and decided to block me.

Anyway, if you are one of those responding to my appeal to check out the site, many thanks for doing so! I would be most interested to hear from other bloggers, particularly those using Blogger, if they have had similar experiences.

"You're Next," warns BBC

On the very same day when the IAEA met to discuss the manufactured controversy around Iran's nuclear power programme, we are warned by Bush's National Intelligence chief, John 'Lord of Darkness' Negroponte, that the USA and Britain should be prepared for further 'terrorist attacks.'

Attacks which are now "imminent."

'Al Qaeda', Iran and North Korea, Negroponte says, remain at the top of U.S. concerns.

"His comments," report the ever-unbiased BBC, "come as the UN's nuclear watchdog considers a call to report Iran to the UN over its nuclear plans."

How typical of the BBC to stir up fear by reporting this in association with Iran. In the 'war on terror' old aunty BBC only too hastily discarded her staid old tweeds long ago to cross-dress as Orwell's Big Brother.

How blatant can the machiavellian Dark Ones get in their relentless bullying of a public which they hold in total contempt? Either the IAEA does what they tell it to or they'll provide yet another 911 to justify what they have wanted all along: war, war and more war!

Permanent war!

Their fingers hover over the nuclear button so don't let anyone stop them from using "these wonderful weapons" to bring the rest of the world to its knees in the New Amerikkan Century!

If folk haven' yet figured out for themselves who really is behind this phony 'war on terror' how much more evidence do they need?
Negroponte and his bunch of 'neocon' mafiosi are past masters in the use of propaganda, the big lie, subliminal terrorism and hit-list killings.

Unfortunately for the rest of us, these are the rogues who have wheedled themselves into power through every foul trick available to them, not least of all two stolen U.S. presidential elections.

In the interests of corporate profit they are now setting up another victim-nation in the crosshairs of their terrorist weapons: Iran, full of the black gold, oil, the Earth's blood for which the Dark Ones have an endless thirst.

And, despite all its pretence about 'balanced reporting' the very-British BBC, today, provides a most convenient conduit for relentlessly churned-out fear propaganda by Washington's 'neocon' Strangeloves and their War Party.

For they, like Blair and Britain's other puppet politicians, will by now have been given the clear message: "Do as we tell you or you're next!"
