Britan, Australia and Europe turn a blind eye to assassins in their midst

Back to the mossad hit and the passports.
John left a comment, thanks John!

Some anomalies with the passport photos:
Since 2005 Subjects must look straight ahead with mouths shut and "neutral" expressions, whereas the photos of those released in the press show many of them grinning like loons. These photos should have been rejected in a UK passport application. Anyone who has applied for a UK passport knows exactly how fussy they are about these rules. Many of the photos also show the holders wearing glasses.

and then some info from the

From the Home Office website:

Information for photographers

Guidelines for photographic studios producing photographs for United Kingdom passports.

Glasses

Glasses can often show reflection or glare from flash, and the frames can obscure the facial features we need to capture. This can cause problems when trying to capture the biometric. We strongly recommend that customers wearing glasses are asked to remove them to ensure that we are able to obtain an accurate biometric. Whilst this may mean that their passport photo does not show them as they usually appear, their photo will still be a good likeness.

Customers with a visual impairment should also follow this guidance.

Facial expression must be neutral (not frowning nor smiling) with the mouth closed

Therefore, these photos should not have made the grade
So, how is it they did?

Interesting points raised in this article

There is no doubt this is a mossad hit. Even the method of the kill was chosen to look as if the vicitm died of natural causes.
The pathologist who examined the victim said that pronouncing him murdered was the most difficult judgment he’d ever had to make.

Ok, the method of killing was good, so to speak.
But
Totally fabricated travel documents won’t work any more
Border police have near-instant access to international passport databases

So the passports used by spies have to match passports in the international databases.
Makes sense....but, those pictures, shouldn't they have set some alarm bells off, somewhere?
I don't know perhaps I am just not devious enough to grasp this mess, so if anyone else has some thoughts, please indulge me!

Then, contradictions on when and who knew what-

The Foreign Office denied claims that it had been tipped off about the use of British passports before the hit, insisting: “We only received details of the British passports a few hours before the [February 15] press conference held by the police in Dubai.”

BUT
The Irish foreign ministry has confirmed that it knew Irish passports had been used by the hit squad as early as February 4 – and it would seem surprising if Britain did not know at least that soon too.

Britian is claiming they did not find out until 11 days after the Irish Foreign
office?
(that just doesn't seem credible)
Especially since, Dubai authorities claimed the use of “European” passports in the hit as early as January 29.

So, Britian really does appear to have gotten angry, once the whole mess hit the news.
Which does support the claim of Israel that "the UK is merely “going through the motions of outrage to mollify the media”.

Also- MI6 has been reassuring Mossad that everything “would blow over”.

Why would MI6 reassure Mossad, unless they were involved? Did MI6 supply or make the passports? It would seem they would have had to been involved somehow.

Britian is now in Israel to 'investigate' the use of passports in the assasination.
Expect a cover-up, given the MI6 reassurance of everything blowing over

PM Kevin Rudd seems to be contradicting himself with every sentence he utters!

First, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd is said to not be satisfied with its Israeli envoy's explanation about the fraudulent use of Australian passports in the assassination of a Hamas commander in Dubai last month.

But, then Rudd said his government had to "proceed very carefully" in the investigation because of its complex security nature.

What in the hell! Your country has been wronged, Rudd, why would you not proceed full steam ahead. What complex security nature? Rudd is playing word games. Clearly. Worse, he is playing games with the people of Australia.

Besides, Britian and Australia playing word games, Europe seems to be completely missing in action.
Europe seems to be wary of following the killers trails.

A killer - or killers - may be on the loose in Europe after a Hamas operative was slain last month in Dubai. European nations, however, seem to be in no rush to find him, her or them.

Authorities there (France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy) have either declined to say whether they are investigating, or have said they have no reason to hunt down the 26 suspects implicated in the Jan. 19 killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.

"Countries such as Germany have a special relationship with Israel because of their history and therefore wouldn't be interested in investigating," he said.

What the hell?! Special relationship?

Dutch and Italian officials, too, said they aren't investigating the flight of six suspects to Amsterdam and Rome.
Michael Boyle, a lecturer in strategic studies at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland, said European countries were "unlikely or unwilling to make it a serious political issue with Israel.
It's going to raise up embarrassing questions and complicate their relationship with Israel," he said.

Um, ok?

All these countries cooperate militarily, can we assume their intelligence agencies are all inter-connected? I would think so. So none of these countries can really question Israel, since they are all part and parcel of this entire intrigue, and risk exposing themselves.

Well, that is my take on it!

Man bulldozes home ahead of IRS & Foreclosure

With all the talk of Joe Stack's plane trip into the IRS building , I missed this one!

"As far as what the bank is going to get, I plan on giving them back what was on this hill exactly [as] it was. I brought it out of the ground and I plan on putting it back in the ground," said Hoskins.


And he just might level his business too

EU: Goods made at Illegal Jewish settlements are not Israeli goods

Since the BBC was to cowardly to give this news the factual title, I did.

The ruling on Thursday by the EU court in Luxembourg stems from a case brought by the German drinks company Brita.

It imports products from an Israeli company based in Mishor Adumin in the (occupied)West Bank and was refused preferential trade treatment by the German customs authorities.

On appeal, a German court asked the European Court of Justice for its decision.

European Court of Justice rulings are binding on member states. The decision reflects what has been the general policy of the EU on the issue.


which is-

"The European Union takes the view that products obtained in locations which have been placed under Israeli administration since 1967 do not qualify for the preferential treatment provided for under [the EC-Israel Agreement]," the judges said.

also-

"The Court notes in this respect that, under the EC-Israel Agreement, the Israeli authorities are obliged to provide sufficient information to enable the real origin of products to be determined."

I am a bit torn, I realize that the Palestinians desperately need these jobs. I also realize the Israeli companies exploit Palestinians for their cheap labour.

However-

Palestinians have long argued that Israeli goods made in settlements should not receive trade privileges, as settlements are not part of Israel.

Pro-Palestinian campaigners have also regularly protested that European supermarkets stock goods with Israeli labels on farm products from the West Bank.


Noting-
Despite a specific request from the German authorities, the Israeli authorities did not reply to the question whether the products had been manufactured in Israeli-occupied settlements in Palestinian territory.
Israel has yet to formally comment on the court ruling.

Men's underwear as economic indicators ?

Ok, fellows is this true?
How do your skivvies, gitch or gotch measure up? Or in the case of the Scotts and their kilts, never mind!
If you want to know where the economy is headed next, look in your underwear drawer.

If you're like most men, you've got more than a few skivvies in, well, less than perfect condition.

If you're put off buying replacements -- and your significant other hasn't done it for you -- then guess what? The recession probably ain't over yet.

In fact, right now men's underwear sales suggest that things have bottomed but not started to recover.

Men's underwears sales have "bottomed"
snicker

Passports and assasins- Israel no accusations, no concerns

Some more Israel news. Sorry, but the whole passport thing is just ripe for the pickin'

As Kevin Rudd makes alot of noise, demanding answers and all that bluster.

"We are going to get to the bottom of this," Prime Minister Kevin Rudd told ABC Radio.

And Gordon Brown does hand springs for his audience, to demonstrate his steadfast perseverance and intention to get an answer

Prime Minister Mr Brown said: "We are looking at this at this very moment."

All very urgent you may think but, not really according to Israel.

Today, Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor has denied that diplomatic ties are under strain

``I haven't heard any government accuse Israel of being involved in that, not in France, not in Britain, not in Ireland, not in Germany and now not in Australia,'' he told ABC Radio today.

``There have been many hints, or direct accusations by media (but) ... they don't represent any official stance.


We don't think we should feel concerned.''

When asked directly if Israel denied involvement.
Palmor declined to respond saying saying there had been no accusations.
``(So) I refuse to stand accused.''

So, I ask, is it all bluster and show on the part of the Australian and UK government?

Also interesting-
Victor Otrovsky- Mossad just manufactures passports

If they can obtain blank passports, which they have in the past from Canada, from England, they do. If not, they just manufacture them."

He says a company within Mossad headquarters is dedicated to forging passports.

"They create various types of papers, every kind of ink. It's a very, very expensive research department," he said.

He says the manufactured passports are almost identical to the originals.

"If they create a passport at a top level for use of that nature ... I don't think anybody will be able to find the difference," he said.


Perhaps Israel really isn't concerned diplomatically. If they are just manufacturing passports as needed?

Oh, and one more thing...

IN 2004, it was an open secret in Canberra's Middle Eastern community that Israeli agents were trying to obtain "clean" passports from countries such as Australia and New Zealand to be used by its spy agency, Mossad.

In 2004, Mr Kazak declared that a Mossad agent operating in Sydney at the time had obtained 25 false Australian passports.

I just can't help but come away with the impression that when spokespersons for Israel say they do not stand accused and are unconcerned, they really don't and they really aren't

Israel to advertise it's way into your heart

read entire article at link :Making the case for Israel

“Are you fed up with the way we are portrayed around the world?” each of the three spots asks. “You can change the picture.”

The campaign urges citizens to show that Israel is modern, sophisticated and peace-loving. Brochures that provide helpful examples and statistics are being distributed by airlines.

“In light of Israel's negative image in the world, we realized that Israel had to counter the vast sums of money available to Arab countries for propaganda by taking advantage of our human resources,” explained Yuli Edelstein, the government minister responsible for public diplomacy


(OMG, that made me laugh. Israel is the country with vast, vast sums of money for propaganda, as this latest campaign clearly demonstrates. Who are these people kidding?)

“We decided to give Israelis who go abroad tools and tips to help them deal with the attacks on Israel in their conversations with people, media appearances and lectures before wide audiences. I hope we succeed together in changing the picture and proving to the world that there is a different Israel.”

And there going to spend even more money, to spread even more propaganda.

Mr. Edelstein has called his new recruits the Israeli Public Diplomacy Forces, after the name of the Israel Defence Forces, the country's military.

Only natural from rabidly militarized country their newest messengers are named after the Israeli military



Swine flu as elusive as WMD's

This piece is quite good, don't know how I missed it?
Better late then never!

Let me recap. Six months ago I reviewed the latest bit of terrorism to emerge from the government's Cobra bunker, courtesy of Alan Johnson, home secretary. Swine flu was allegedly ravaging the nation. The BBC was intoning nightly statistics on what "could" happen as "the deadly virus" took hold. The chief medical officer, Sir Liam Donaldson, bandied about any figure that came into his head, settling on "65,000 could die", peaking at 350 corpses a day

(pulling numbers out of a hat?)

If anyone dared question this drivel, they were dismissed by Donaldson as "extremists". When people started reporting swine flu to be even milder than ordinary flu, he accused them of complacency and told them to "wait for next winter". He was already buying 32m masks and spending more than £1bn on Tamiflu and vaccines. Surgeries refused entry to those with flu symptoms, referring them to a government "hotline" where prescription drugs were ordered to be made available without examination or doctor's note. Who knows how many died of undiagnosed illness as a result? Lines were instantly jammed. It was pure, systematic government-induced panic – in which I accept that the media played its joyful part.

(reading through this I am wondering, is there a standard MO at work here,put out some outrageous fear mongering, pull numbers out of a hat, deride anyone who questions)

This week the authorities admitted that, far from a winter upturn in swine flu, there has been a slump. From 100,000 a week at the peak, there were just 12,000 last week. After the coldest winter for decades, when deaths might be expected to rise, the rate is below that of seasonal flu. In the UK, 360 people have died under its influence, most with prior "non-flu" conditions. Swine flu is not nice – I have had it – but bears no ­relation to the government hysteria.

Swine flu is not the first time we have suffered this nonsense. I have a stack of predictions by senior scientists on BSE/CJD in 1995.

(and it isn't going to be the last, so be on guard for this kind of fear mongering and profiteering)

This was followed by Sars 2003, a "panic gripping the world". The World Health Organisation declared that "One in four Britons could die". The medical doom-monger, Dr Patrick Dixon, said that Sars had "a 25% chance of killing tens of millions", whatever that meant. The madcap Tory health spokesman, Liam Fox, demanded the arrest and quarantining of all recent travellers from Asia, including 30,000 Asian students.
In the event, some 800 people died with Sars worldwide, against 21,000 who died in Britain in the seasonal flu epidemic of 1999/2000.


Undaunted, within a year the same alarmists were at work on avian flu. With now habitual hyperbole, Donaldson predicted 50,000 deaths, with "an upper limit", graciously conceded, of 750,000. When one dead swan slumped on a beach in Scotland, BBC reporters went crazy as inspectors stumbled through the seaweed, clad in anti-nuclear armour. Within a year the horror had passed. The global mortality was put at 262, with not one death in Britain. Another fiasco was brushed under the carpet.

Mad scientist syndrome is rampant. Had these scares been disseminated by a private firm, a local authority or a newspaper (as was anti-MMR), they would be damned from on high with demands that heads roll. As it is, the government's Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies sails gaily on, still graced by the presence of Sir Roy Anderson, who ­happens also to draw a six-figure salary as a non-executive director of GlaxoSmithKline, which made hundreds of millions from the government's panic. Anderson, and GSK, vigorously deny any conflict of
interest.

The Council of Europe's head of health, Wolfgang Wodarg, is one of the few who have dared blow the whistle on the links between "Big Pharma" and national and ­supranational agencies. He this week persuaded the council to stage a debate on the "enormous gains" made by GSK and others from the swine flu pandemic. He seeks details of relations between the companies and the WHO, given that stockpile contracts kick in the moment that ­organisation uses the word "pandemic". It did so for the first time last year, with reckless alacrity.


And finally we get to the end, that ties it all up, the collusion of scientists, governments and profit taking, massive profit taking, using fear as the common exploiter.

This is why people are ever more sceptical of scientists. Why should they believe what "experts" say when they can be so wrong and with such impunity? Weapons of mass destruction, lethal viruses, nuclear radiation, global warming … why should we believe a word of it?
It is not just scientists, it is the whole ball of wax. Government, scientists, business, all colluding together to manipulate you out of your hard earned money

Joe Stack's daughter speaks

This is interesting. Joe Stack's adult daughter has done an interview




Asked whether she considered her father a hero, Stack's adult daughter, Samantha Dawn Bell, said during a telephone interview broadcast Monday on ABC's "Good Morning America"
"Yes. Because now maybe people will listen." But she stressed that his actions were "inappropriate."

"I think too many people lay around and wait for things to happen. But if nobody comes out and speaks up on behalf of injustice, then nothing will ever be accomplished"


She believes the reason Stack allegedly set his house on fire the morning of the attack is that

"We pay taxes on our home as well. My belief is that the house was part of the government. And I think he wanted to get rid of what was left."

"He stood up to the system," she added.



She later recanted her 'hero' statement.

"I don't want to hurt anybody," she told ABC. "We are mourning for Vernon Hunter," referring to the IRS investigator killed in the attack.
For obvious reasons. Someone died and that individuals family are not going to view her Dad as a hero.

That said, however she feels, she feels.

I notice the media is alternatively telling people what to think of this situation:
'While most Americans surely see Joseph Stack as an angry, misguided man whose final act"

and at the same time, linking Joe Stack to fringe, or racist groups.


It is not surprising Stack would be portrayed as a hero on fringe Web sites such as stormfront.org, a forum for white supremacists.
So, it is pretty clear the smear is on. As I said from the get go.

Bishop Robert (Bob) Bowman - 9/11 truther or 9/11 gatekeeper ?

Robert Bowman a patriot for 9/11 truth? Sure.
Took a run for Congress in 2004. Yeah.
How about Bishop Bob Bowman? Yes, that is Bishop Robert (Bob) Bowman, he is presiding ArchBishop of the United Catholic Church.


(that's Bishop Bowman in full costume)

I know, your thinking Vatican connections, but, you would be mistaken. The United Catholic Church has no ties to the Vatican. Generally this version of the Catholic Church is rather hostile to the Roman Catholic Church, headed by the Vatican. Bishop Bowman is, as commonly called, a Wandering Bishop.
Bishops in Independent Catholic Churches are sometimes referred to as episcopi vagantes ("wandering bishops") because of their lack of affiliation with a larger communion of churches.

A brief background from Bowman's church.

We of the independent Catholic movement are Catholic Christians not under the jurisdiction of Rome. The United Catholic Church is a free association of individual Christians, independent churches, religious orders, denominations, and interchurch fellowships.Our clergy are validly ordained bishops, priests, and deacons in the Apostolic Succession, and are recognized as such. ( I am going to come back to this ordination succession)

I notice there is a complete lack of information regarding the congregation.

I'll bet your scratching your head? What the heck is she on about? Well, you see, when I got this in an e-mail yesterday, I had an a-ha moment!

Because where, oh where have I read of oddly placed Bishops previously?

When we look at Dave McGowans piece, Sleazefest in Seattle, and recall that Seattle cop killer Maurice Clemmons -made an unusual visit to a Bishop, Bishop Bernard Jordan.
He disturbed a June 13 prayer service, trying to rush the stage and yelling, and then approached Bishop Bernard Jordan at his gala 50th birthday banquet the next day.

When else do we have oddly placed Wandering Bishops and churches?

We find them active during the Kennedy assasination and linked to intelligence operations and especially Lee Harvey Oswald.

This assassination team funded Maurice Brooks Gatlin, Guy Bannister, and the Miami office of Double Check Corporation. J. Edgar Hoover's Division V, Domestic Intelligence, working with the American Council of Christian Churches, had used this group from the Bowen-Osbome academy of assassins.

Working out of Guy Bannisters office were 4 ordained Wandering Bishops!

At one time, there were as many as four “bishops” functioning from Guy Banister’s Camp Street office, and these included virtually all of his investigators, from David Ferrie and Jack Martin to Thomas Beckham and the lawyer Thomas Jude Baumler. Beckham was a bishop with the Universal Life Church, along with his friend Fred Lee Crisman (the man who was involved with the seminal UFO event of the 20th century, the Maury Island affair)

As near as I can figure the Bishops and their churches serve as part of networks for any manner of covert actions. Another Bishop who figured big in the covert business was Walter Propheta

" In 1967, Propheta was involved with J. Edgar Hoover who evidently installed him as the “primate” of the American Orthodox Catholic Church at a dinner in Manhattan."

Okay, so I filled in some of the blanks. Or maybe I just made things worse? I can't tell.
But, either way when I saw this, I became immediately suspicious of what type of role Robert(Bob) Bowman has really been playing in the 9/11 movement. Has he been attempting to bring it out?Or has he just been helping to manage the movement?

Oh and I want to get back to this.
"Our clergy are validly ordained bishops, priests, and deacons in the Apostolic Succession, and are recognized as such." As is the claim of all Wandering Bishops, including David Ferrie and others.
What I want to know is who ordained Robert Bowman? Was he ordained through the multiples of intelligence connected Apostolic lines of succession?

Copenhagen fails, UN tries again despite another error

COPENHAGEN

Talks will take place in April under the UN flag for planning the next steps in the effort toward a global treaty on climate change, Danish Minister for Climate and Energy Lykke Friis said Monday.

The April 9-11 meeting will take place in Bonn gathering senior officials of signatories of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), said Friis, whose country currently chairs the negotiating process.

The date was set at a meeting of the UNFCCC bureau, tasked with drawing up a calendar of meetings for 2010 in the aftermath of the controversial climate summit in Copenhagen in December, the Danish news agency Ritzau said.


This despite, another error!

Climate scientists withdraw journal claims of rising sea levels

Study claimed in 2009 that sea levels would rise by up to 82cm by the end of century – but the report's author now says true estimate is still unknown.

How many errors have been acknowledged now?
Bad code, corrupt practices and an out and out admission that global temperatures have NOT increased.

Climategate U-turn as scientist at centre of row admits: There has been no global warming since 1995



"And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming."

China circled by chain of US anti-missile systems

Washington appears determined to surround China with US-built anti-missile systems, military scholars have observed.

According to US-based Defense News, Taiwan became the fifth global buyer of the Patriot missile defense system last year following Japan, the Republic of Korea, the United Arab Emirates and Germany.

Quite a few military experts have noted that Washington's latest proposed weapon deal with Taiwan is the key part of a US strategic encirclement of China in the East Asian region, and that the missiles could soon have a footprint that extends from Japan to the Republic of Korea and Taiwan.

Air force colonel Dai Xu, a renowned military strategist, wrote in an article released this month that "China is in a crescent-shaped ring of encirclement. The ring begins in Japan, stretches through nations in the South China Sea to India, and ends in Afghanistan. Washington's deployment of anti-missile systems around China's periphery forms a crescent-shaped encirclement".

Ni Lexiong, an expert on military affairs with the Shanghai Institute of Political Science and Law, told the Guanghzou Daily yesterday, "The US anti-missile system in China's neighborhood is a replica of its strategy in Eastern Europe against Russia.

Tang Xiaosong, director of the Center of International Security and Strategy Studies with Guangdong University of Foreign Studies noted that the ring encircling China can also be expanded at any time in other directions. He said that Washington is hoping to sell India and other Southeast Asian countries the Patriot Advanced Capability (PAC)-3 missile defense system.

Analysts say that China is closely monitoring US-India missile defense cooperation since any integration of India into the US global missile defense system, would profoundly affect China's security.

Fall out from Mossad's Dubai hit- Forged and Legitimate Passports used

Early January
"The headquarters of Mossad, the Israeli secret intelligence agency, known as the “midrasha”. Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, stepped out of his car and was greeted by Meir Dagan, the 64-year-old head of the agency."

Inside the briefing room were some members of a hit squad. As the man who gives final authorisation for such operations, Netanyahu was briefed on plans to kill Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, a member of Hamas, the militant Islamic group that controls Gaza.

Mossad had received intelligence that Mabhouh was planning a trip to Dubai and they were preparing an operation to assassinate him there, off-guard in a luxury hotel. The team had already rehearsed, using a hotel in Tel Aviv as a training ground without alerting its owners.

The mission was not regarded as unduly complicated or risky, and Netanyahu gave his authorisation, in effect signing Mabhouh’s death warrant.

Typically on such occasions, the prime minister intones: “The people of Israel trust you. Good luck.”

Days later on January 19, Emirates flight EK912 took off from the Syrian capital Damascus at 10.05am. On board, as Mossad had anticipated, was Mabhouh, who was also known by the nom de guerre of Abu al-Abd. The Israelis suspected he planned to travel from Dubai to the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas to arrange for an arms shipment to Gaza.

As the Airbus A330 rose into the wintry sky and headed south, Mabhouh, an athletic 49-year-old, could see the minarets of the ancient city — his home since he had been deported from Gaza by Israel more than 20 years before.

He had made the trip to Dubai several times before on Hamas business and had little reason to think that in less than 12 hours he would be dead.

Did the hit squad use forged diplomatic passports in the case of the British Citizens?

Is this how the forged British passports were created?
Israeli immigration officials at Tel Aviv airport secretly copied the British passports which were then used by the hit squad which assassinated a leading Hamas official, ministers have been told.

The German Passport was not a forgery! And what an interesting tale behind that one-

German intelligence
agents found that in June 2009 an Israeli man identifying himself as Michael Bodenheimer - a name listed by police as a member of the hit squad - approached immigration officials in Cologne with the pre-World War II address of his grandparents. Bodenheimer acquired German citizenship on the basis of this information.

Bodenheimer claimed afterwards his identity was stolen

Michael Bodenheimer, Rabbi Michael Bodenheimer. While he acknowledges his grandparents were born in Germany, he was born in the US and claims he holds a US passport.
So did the Rabbi apply for the passport? Or did someone else using the Rabbis personal information?

Either way, the German passport was legit.
Which begs the question was Germany involved?

Alex Jones Crashes Pro-Gun rally in Texas

Is Alex Jones a disinfo agent?
His actions at this pro-gun rally in Texas are certainly odd. Watch the video.



Here is some related info.
On January 27, 2010, John Bush and Catherine Bleish broadcast their program "Rise Up Radio" on Rule of Law Radio. The main topic of their report was a protest on January 25th in Austin, TX where a local gun show had been shut down. The reporting of this event has apparently led to the removal of Rise Up Radio from the Rule of Law program schedule, as well as the archived hours of the program.
You can listen to the show here.
The show I speak of, is the show that saw John Bush and Catherine Bleish lose their program on Rise Up Radio.
So watch the video, download the show and decide for yourself.
Grandstanding, hogging the limelight, or cointelpro?

Genetically Modified Enviro-Pigs make you the guinea pig

A Canadian government department is poised to approve genetically modified pigs for the food supply.
The Yorkshire pigs were developed by researchers in Ontario at the University of Guelph, who spliced in genes from mice to decrease the amount of phosphorus produced in the pigs' dung, the report said.

Excessive phosphorous has been linked to groundwater contamination around large livestock operations.

In other words, rather then address all the problems associated with the filthy phenomena of factory farming, splice in some mice genes and your good to go!

Pilot flies plane into IRS building, read the pilots final words..

He thinks his final words are not articulate, he is mistaken. Read it, share what you think.
I will say, people are fed up..

About 9:40 am Texas time, this pilot flew his plane into the IRS building

A small plane apparently piloted by a crazed man with an ax to grind against the IRS crashed his aircraft into an office building in Austin, Texas Thursday -- but not before writing an online rant against the agency and setting his own house on fire.

Two people were injured inside.

His final words are unavailable at his site , as it is already gone.

This website has been taken offline due to the sensitive nature of the events that transpired in Texas this morning and in compliance with a request from the FBI. Please go to our forum if you want to see the smoking gun archived version of the original letter or wish to discuss anything related to this incident: Texas crash pilot left suicide note on Web site - embeddedart.com.

Regards,
T35 Hosting - www.T35.com

However, you can read his final words here
And it is a must read letter, and perhaps a must print and save letter?
It starts out like this-

If you’re reading this, you’re no doubt asking yourself, “Why did this have to happen?” The simple truth is that it is complicated and has been coming for a long time. The writing process, started many months ago, was intended to be therapy in the face of the looming realization that there isn’t enough therapy in the world that can fix what is really broken. Needless to say, this rant could fill volumes with example after example if I would let it. I find the process of writing it frustrating, tedious, and probably pointless… especially given my gross inability to gracefully articulate my thoughts in light of the storm raging in my head. Exactly what is therapeutic about that I’m not sure, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

Pilot deliberately crashed into Texas building, official says







Yup, let the pancaking begin..... Anytime....

Can't help thinking of 9/11. Guess this one wasn't rigged to collapse?

Haiti child kidnappers& Killer Colonel updates

Updates on two stories I've been following here

8 of the 10 child kidnappers have been released.


Earlier on Wednesday, the judge hearing the missionaries' case said all but two members of the group could leave the country, without conditions.
However, Judge Bernard Saint-Vil said he still wanted to interview the group's leader, Laura Silsby, and Charisa Coulter about a visit they made to Haiti in December, before the earthquake struck.
Silsby originally said they only took orphaned or abandoned children. However, it turned out that several of the children had parents who willingly handed them over to the group, in the hopes they would have a chance at a better life
(taking advantage of the devestated parents, who had hopes of better lives for their kids, these sub-humans Silsby and her 'nanny' Coulter, was going to sell them into sex slavery and certain death)
Oh an US Marshals are 'hunting' for Puello.
The Killer Colonel makes his court debut today, via video feed.

This should appeal to the tv heads of the world, since most people view 'life' through their tv screens anyway....

He has the best lawyer, Michael Edelson, that money can buy representing him.
It is expected that another court date will be set.

Meanwhile police continue to search the Colonel's home


Ooops, I should say both of his homes

Two unmarked Ontario Provincial Police trucks arrived late Wednesday morning at the former Canadian military commander's lakefront property, about 30 kilometres northeast of Belleville.
Another six cruisers and 20 OPP officers were also at the scene, up from about three cruisers earlier in the day.
Investigators equipped with saws, drills and other power tools were believed to be cutting out the flooring, wood-panelled walls and ceiling of the two-bedroom house as they search for evidence in the case against Williams.
On Tuesday, similar police activity could be seen at Williams' home in Ottawa's Westboro neighbourhood.
Let's hope the police manage to conduct a more thorough search then they did in the case of his school mate, neighbour & partying pal, Paul Bernardo.
Don't forget to search the light fixtures okay!

Fake Passports & Political Assasinations, the MO of Israel's Mossad

Unless you have had your head buried in the sand, you should be aware that Israel assassinated a Hamas official in Dubai.

Mossad accused of complicity in assassination of top Hamas official in Dubai
Dubai has widened its search for the killers of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh on Wednesday with officials confirming at least six of the Hamas commander's assassins remain unaccounted for. Yesterday, police in Dubai issued international arrest warrants for eleven suspects in the case. It is now believed the team behind the murder numbered at least seventeen.

Police in the United Arab Emirates described the killing as meticulously planned, with the hit squad arriving on different flights and checking into different hotels.

Gordon Brown has called for a 'full investigation' into how fraudulent British passports were obtained by the suspects.

The forged passports have fueled already widespread speculation in the region that Mossad was behind the assassination. If confirmed, the allegations will trigger an Israeli diplomatic row with Britain and the three other European countries whose passports were used - Ireland, Germany and France.

This use of foreign stolen or falsified passports by Israel for assassination is nothing new.
This piece, from the Guardian, looks at the history of this practice.
Thought the tone of the article is apologetic, sort of a - just something that has to be done shoulder shruggin' kind of response.

Shadowy and deadly - the long arm of the Mossad
Mossad has has a long history of carrying out clandestine operations, including several spectacular assassinations. Much remains secret but cases that are documented have involved large teams of agents using false or stolen passports to disguise their Israeli origins.

Canadian's have previously fallen victim to this abuse of their identities.
Flashback: Canada's Passport: It get's around, and not just with Canadians!
Oh and Canada's response, well read that piece and you'll get the idea.

As for all the noise Gordon Brown is making about wanting a full investigation. Much ado about nothing. Just like the piece from the Guardian, Mr. Brown will shrug his shoulders and move along.

Here is an opinion from Israel, which sums up what I think will come of this-nothing.
Israel has nothing to worry about over Dubai killing

As such, unless dramatic evidence is found to definitively prove an Israeli connection, it is likely that the State of Israel will emerge from this affair unblemished and the Mossad will continue enjoying a reputation of fearless determination and nearly unstoppable capabilities.
While I wouldn't say Israel will emerge unblemished.....Israel is already pretty blemished, and this won't help. Let's say, everyone will turn a blind eye. And the Mossad will indeed, as before, carry on with it's agenda.

Na'vi (Avatar) protest at West Bank Barrier

There are some good photos here of a clever protest.

Hopefully, the glossy eyed Hollywood crowd and it's worshippers will understand that the Palestinians are the indigenous population being wiped out by the militarized, expansionist policies of Israel.

I've included one picture to give you an idea of the protest, get over to the Guardian for additional photos

Ukraine election results suspended by Courts

Julia Tymoshenko had carried out her threats, she has not accepted her loss.
She has taken her case to the Ukrainian court.

This brings back, to my mind, the selection of George Bush.Wether you like or dislike him is irrelevant. He was not elected, he was selected by the court.

This is the ploy Tymoshenko seems to be using.
Though unlike in the US, where no outside election monitoring was done, there were election monitors in the Ukraine present for this last election.
The monitors said the election was clean.
Still, the court says the result should be suspended while it considers the evidence she has submitted.
What evidence? The evidence of fraud, or so she claims, in the run-off vote.

Meanwhile, Parliament carries on the business of running the country, including setting the date for the inauguration of Yanukovich.
-Ukraine President-elect Yanukovych to be sworn in on February 25 which coincides with the day the court's ruling, on the gas princess's appeal, will be made.

Ukraine's parliament on Tuesday passed a resolution, which set Feb. 25 for the inauguration of President-elect Victor Yanukovych.
The resolution was backed by 238 MPs, the Interfax-Ukraine news agency reported.
If you refresh your memories on some recent posts on Ukraine, I mentioned this place is just too strategically significant for the West to lose.


Situated in the Eurasian heartland, Ukraine has a sizable territory and population. These make it a nation of great strategic importance. Ukraine has also played an increasingly important role between NATO and Russia after NATO began its eastward expansion


Julia Tymoshenko, would not, I repeat, would not be doing this without backing from some very powerful countries and people. President Obama may have called and congratulated the democratically elected new leader Victor Yanukovych, but, that call was equivalent to the kiss of Judas.

Laser blasts missile target

I was thinking about the discussion at Nobody's on laser weapons and 9/11. Don't know if it relevant, somehow it seems it may be.

But, I will say, if this is the best it get's for military lasers.....then, I don't think any type of laser weapon was a factor on 9/11.

Haiti's subjugation, human trafficking, and the political enablers

Haiti. I say it and sigh.....

I put up the news yesterday about the Haitian child trafficking ring, and it's so called lawyer, who is not a lawyer,
" An official says the Dominican man giving legal advice to 10 Americans detained in Haiti on child-kidnapping charges has no license to practice law in his home country.
but is actually a wanted criminal, whose wife has already been incarcerated for child trafficking.

Interestingly, " the families of 6 of the 10 Americans say they don't know how Puello got involved"

They may want to look to the leader of this Christian pack Laura Silsby, who left behind a trail of bad debts, unpaid wages and more.

I am of the opinion that Ms. Silsby was involved with Mr. Puello, prior to her sojourn to kidnap children in Haiti. Hence his 'helping hand' in the situation. Ms Silsby looks to be in need of money, and willing to get it, by any means necessary. It is entirely possible, she used some of the other church goers to give legitimacy to her despicable plans.

As if the thought of these evil people kidnapping children is not bad enough, one has to consider this... Why is Bill Clinton advocating on their behalf ? Clinton brokers deal over Haiti orphan abductions. Why come to their rescue at all?

This is not acceptable that these Americans attempted to steal children and take them into another country (Dominican Republic) Into the waiting arms of their advocate and partner in crime Mr. Puello.
But, here is Mr. Clinton, intervening on behalf of child traffickers?
I find that incredible.
Who appointed Mr. Clinton decision maker for the country of Haiti? How does he supersede the wishes of the Haitian people? How does he justify intervening in favour of child traffickers?

Listen to the words of Bill Clinton at Davos

“This is an opportunity to reimagine the future for the Haitian people, to build what they want to become, not rebuild what they used to be,'' Clinton told the global oligarchs at the World Economic Forum [1] in Davos, Switzerland.


Haiti, the land of opportunity. Opportunity for who?

In one sweeping sentence, Clinton claimed a kind of sovereignty over the Haitian people’s very imaginations, assigning himself the right to filter what was good or bad about Haiti’s past, and what is permissible in the future. Haitians are no longer allowed to possess their own dreams and remembrances, which have apparently been placed in United Nations trusteeship, under control of UN special envoy to Haiti, Bill Clinton.
I am quoting from an excellent article U.S. Attempts to Erase Haitian Nationhood

Proud Haiti has been reduced to a de facto “protectorate” of the United States – a grotesque form of non-sovereignty in which the subjugated nation is “protected” by its worst enemy.


Haiti, a subjugated nation, for the benefit of white, rich elitists....
This subjugation by the powerful of the powerless is what allows Bill Clinton to advocate on behalf of child traffickers.
It is a sick, twisted world.

Haiti case adviser linked to child prostitution

Being reported in the Sydney Herald today:

SANTO DOMINGO: The man providing legal advice to American church workers charged with trying to take children out of Haiti may have a string of legal charges against him in the US and has emerged as the key suspect in a child prostitution ring in El Salvador

Though his wife was convicted in the case, Mr Torres Puello left the country - wanted by Salvadorean police - before ending up in Haiti. A self-styled lawyer with no law degree, he has had other brushes with the law, including a charge in Miami in 1999 for possessing fake documents, records show. His bond was later revoked and a warrant issued for his arrest.

The revelations are another twist in the drama surrounding the church workers from Idaho, who have been jailed for trying to take 33 children from Haiti without permission after the earthquake ripped through Port-au-Prince on January 12.

For the past 10 days Mr Torres Puello has been a visible figure in the church case, granting interviews with reporters about his role as legal adviser to the group.

But little was known about his background until Friday, when Salvadorean police announced an investigation into whether he was the same suspect who led the trafficking ring.

Using photos and fingerprints, police say they are close to confirming that Mr Torres Puello is the suspect wanted since last year for leading a network that recruited children for prostitution in Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and El Salvador. In the interview with the Miami Herald, his mother confirmed that his wife - Ana Josefa Galvarina Ramirez Orellana - had been convicted in the case and was in jail in San Salvador.

Police broke the ring last year after three children aged 14, 15 and 16 escaped from a house in El Salvador and went to the police to report they had been forced to pose naked to promote the enterprise.

Unintended consequences of a strike on Iran, worrisome for the world.

Israel: Netanyahu Heads to Russia with Call for 'Crippling Sanctions' on Iran

Mr. Netanyahu said Russia is an important "superpower" and an important friend of the state of Israel.
Israel forgot about their important friend and superpower when they involved themselves in Georgia's attack....but, I digress.
Israeli media said Mr. Netanyahu would press Russia not to sell sophisticated weapons to Iran. Israel is especially concerned about Russian anti-aircraft missiles that would improve Iran's defenses against a possible Israeli attack.

Russia:
"No reason to stall on the sale of its S-300 anti-aircraft systems to Iran"

The possible sale of Russian air defense hardware to the Islamic Republic is a major irritant for both Israel and close ally the United States.
"This deal is not restricted by any international sanctions, because the talk is about deliveries of an exclusively defensive weapon," he said.
Nazarov also said a military strike on Iran would be a big mistake and that the problems linked to Iran's nuclear program must be resolved only by diplomatic means.

"Any military action against Iran will explode the situation, will have extremely negative consequences for the entire world, including for Russia, which is a neighbor of Iran," he said.


The US:
The chairman of the US military's Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, said on Sunday he was concerned about the consequences of any attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.

"The outbreak of a conflict will be a big, big, big problem for all of us, and I worry a great deal about the unintended consequences of a strike," Admiral Mullen said.

Apart from saying that "it's pretty hard to be specific about" the issue, the top-ranking US military official did not expand on his comments.

While it may be 'pretty hard to be specific', I am hoping the additional information posted expands on Mullen's comments about big, big problems and unintended consequences.

There should be no attack on Iran, it is time to say no to Israel.

IPCC wrong again on two counts- Dutch Sea Levels & African Crops

Climate experts have been forced to admit more embarrassing errors, how many is that now?

The UN group said its 2007 report wrongly stated that 55% of the Netherlands lies below sea level. In fact, only 26% of the country does.

The figure used by the IPCC included all areas in the country that are prone to flooding, including land along rivers above sea level. This accounts for 29% of the Dutch countryside.
This Sea level blunder enrages Dutch minister

A United Nations report wrongly claimed that more than half of the Netherlands is currently below sea level.

In fact, just 20 percent of the country consists of polders that are pumped dry, and which are at risk of flooding if global warming causes rising sea levels. Dutch Environment Minister Jacqueline Cramer has ordered a thorough investigation into the quality of the climate reports which she uses to base her policies on.

Maybe the Dutch need the IPCC to tell them, as residents, how big their country is?

From the same article-

"Dutch researchers reporting to Minister Cramer on Wednesday said that global warming appears to be slower than had been assumed. In a brochure published by the Dutch Platform for Communication on Climate Change (PCCC) the academics say that sunspot activity was relatively low over the past decade and will continue to be low for the foreseeable future.
The lower the solar activity, the smaller the warming effect. According to the PCCC, the average temperature may even decrease by between 0.2 and 0.4 degrees.

The sun, through sunspot activity affects earths temperatures. Say it isn't so?

And still another claim bites the dust- African crops yield another catastrophe for the IPCC
One of the most widely quoted and most alarmist passages in the main 2007 report was a warning that, by 2020, global warming could reduce crop yields in some countries in Africa by 50 per cent

The origin of this claim was a report written for a Canadian advocacy group by Ali Agoumi, a Moroccan academic who draws part of his current income from advising on how to make applications for "carbon credits"

As his primary sources he cited reports for three North African governments. But none of these remotely supported what he wrote.

The nearest any got to providing evidence for his claim was one for the Moroccan government, which said that in serious drought years, cereal yields might be reduced by 50 per cent. The report for the Algerian government, on the other hand, predicted that, on current projections, "agricultural production will more than double by 2020".

The Algerian government reported agriculture would double and the IPCC says crops would fall by 50 percent?

What made this even odder, however, was that the group's
co-chairman was a British agricultural expert, Dr Martin Parry, whose consultancy group, Martin Parry Associates, had been paid £75,000 by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) for two reports which had come to totally different conclusions. Specifically designed to inform the IPCC's 2007 report, these predicted that by 2020 any changes were likely to be insignificant.

British taxpayers poured out money for the section of the IPCC report for which Dr Parry was responsible. Defra paid £2.5 million through the Met Office, plus £330,000 for Dr Parry's salary as co-chairman, and a further £75,000 to his consultancy for two more reports on the impact of global warming on world food supplies. Yet when it came to the impact on Africa, all this peer-reviewed work – including further expert reports by Britain's Dr Mike Hulme and Dutch and German teams – was ignored in favour of a prediction from one Moroccan activist at odds with his own cited sources.

The Killer Colonel and the Serial Killer Paul Bernardo

This news just keeps getting more and more twisted.

The killer Colonel and Paul Bernardo.
Yes, that Paul Bernardo. The killer, who along with his wife psycho Karla, killed her own sister, and two other young girls along with raping another girl.

Here is some back ground on Paul Bernardo

More on the Colonel and his Toronto background-
Colonel charged in murders lived in Toronto as teen, young man

Scarborough was once home to Col. Russell Williams, the former CFB Trenton commander charged in the murders of two women.
Williams, now 46, attended Birchmount Park Collegiate Institute on Danforth Avenue and Upper Canada College on Lonsdale Road.
In the mid-1980s, the colonel and serial killer Paul Bernardo both went to the University of Toronto's Scarborough campus on Military Trail.
During that time, there were a series of violent sex attacks in the area
That would be the time of the Scarborough rapist attacks
Here is an FBI profile done on the Scarborough rapist, before Paul Bernardo's arrest.
Interesting to note;

Your offender is a white male, 18 to 25 years of age.
As noted above, we believe your offender lives in the Scarborough area. He is familiar with Scarborough, especially the initial assault sites, and, therefore, in all probability lives in the immediate vicinity of those first assaults.
He is a lone wolf type of person. The personal property of the victims which your offender took from the assault scenes is being kept by him. These effects are viewed as trophies by the offender and allow him to relive the assaults.


The Colonel is a trophy keeper. Undergarments.
Baltovich spent eight years in jail, wrongly convicted of that murder.
He said his hair stood on end earlier this week when he heard Williams, now accused of murdering two women, attended the University of Toronto Scarborough campus — the same campus Bain vanished from in June 1990.
In an interview with the Toronto Sun, Baltovich said the feeling he had when he learned about Williams’ case matched the one he had in jail when he heard about Paul Bernardo. Bernardo, later convicted of murder, was active as the Scarborough rapist during the late 1980s. But in an interview with police years later, he denied having anything to do with Bain’s murder.
Her body was never found.
Wait, there is more! Bernardo gives tips in case against colonel
Bernardo offered advice for police as they scour Williams’ life.
“(Paul) suggested they go back 20 years and look at everything, because that’s when his testosterone would have been at the highest,” Bernardo’s father said


So was Bernardo the Scarborough rapist? Or was the Colonel? Or were they a tag
team? Knowing or unknowingly committing the same types of crimes?

Why Is Schwarzenegger running with the Olympic torch?

The IOC has no problem with California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger running with the Olympic torch, despite his past admission of steroid use.
He is a governor of an American State, California to be specific.
He has not been associated with the Olympics?
And he is not Canadian.
So, did Canada have no Premiers that could run the torch?
No mayors in British Columbia?
City Councillors?
NAU... ?

Just a little update!

Schwarzenegger unworthy to carry our Olympic torch

"It is an utter disgrace that California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is to carry our Olympic torch. John Furlong and VANO C should be ashamed of themselves for embarrassing all Canadians"
Embarrassing Canadian isn't all of it!

More - Why is Schwarzenegger a torchbearer?

But what really bugs me is the symbolism in the pass off.

"Today, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger brought in the dawn by doing his duty with the Olympic torch, handing off to track star great Sebastian Coe, chairman of the London 2012 Summer Olympics"

This is supposed to be a Canadian Olympics, right?
Here we have a US Governor, handing the torch to Sebastion Coe, chairman of London 2012.
So what did the Govenator have to do with the Olympics, besides nothing? Oh yeah, nothing.
Would it not have been far more appropriate to have a Canadian associated with the Vancouver Olympics, pass the torch to the chairman of the London Olympics?
So the torch symbolically goes from Canada to Britain?
Instead we get the Austrian born, US governor, on steroids passing the torch?
Nothing says Canada is already part and parcel of the US and NAU, like this symbolic torch hand off.

Ukraine: balkanization/distraction for Russia?

The recent election in the Ukraine saw the election of Viktor Yanukovych.
Obama congratulated him on behalf of the US.
Canada congratulated the Ukraine on their successful election.

By all accounts the election was fair and democratic.
The European election monitors praised the election that was held Sunday, calling it an “impressive display” of democracy

Yet, the 'gas princess' Yulia Tymoshenko will not concede, though she lost by 3.5 percentage points to Mr. Yanukovich. How can she not concede her loss?
Does she not practice the democracy she preaches?
Does she not agree the rights/the choice of the Ukrainian population have to be respected?

What is going on here?
Are the western countries paying lip service to the new and democratically elected leader? While playing a game of political intrigue behind that same leaders back?
One of the reasons I follow this area, is because it is so strategically important to both the West and Russia.
Does anyone really think that the West would let the Ukraine go, with out a fight of some type?

I am not of the mind that Ms Tymoshenko would be this brazen for personal egotistical reasons.
So, if she is refusing to concede, what backers are encouraging her to hold on to power?

The Ukraine election is likely a signal of a similar election outcome being replayed in Georgia.
Because the people are not so impressed with their western puppet there.
In Georgia, signs of problems ahead appeared soon after the dramatic events of November 2003."
The dramatic events of 2003 being the 'election' of the western backed puppet Mikheil Saakashvili.
From there, things got worse. Media were stifled, subsequent elections manipulated, and the judiciary tamed.

The Western powers/NATO have to be aware of what the loss in the Ukraine means.
I just can't see them letting go of their client states quietly.
So, some thoughts...

Ukraine divided? Broken up into 2 smaller nations?

Or, Ukraine, one country, but it's populace divided and manipulated by two players?
(Thinking along the line of Gaza & the West Bank)

Or Ukraine, a possible military coup against the new leader, necessitating Russia's attention, while the western powers attack Iran?

Something is going on there....

Charlie Wilson dies. His Afghan "war" legacy lives on

Charlie Wilson, US politician who secretly funded CIA in Afghanistan, dies

Charlie Wilson, the Texan Democrat who championed covert CIA support for Afghan Mujahidin in the 1980s and whose life was chronicled in a Hollywood film, has died. He was 76.
He sat on a key House subcommittee and helped to secure huge increases in funding for CIA efforts to help Afghan Mujahidin fighting Soviet occupation forces after the 1979 invasion.

I want to point out that the above mainstream media reporting is incorrect!
Yes, Charlie Wilson he did help secure the funding, for the Afghan "freedom fighters", as Ronald Reagan so fondly called them.
But, what is totally incorrect is that the funding was in response to Soviet invasion.
The CIA funded, covert attacks by the Mujahidin were conducted and financed to encourage a Soviet response, to provoke a war, to give Russia their Vietnam.

The CIA's Intervention in Afghanistan:Interview with Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Jimmy Carter's National Security Adviser

Question: The former director of the CIA, Robert Gates, stated in his memoirs ["From the Shadows"], that American intelligence services began to aid the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan 6 months before the Soviet intervention. In this period you were the national security adviser to President Carter. You therefore played a role in this affair. Is that correct?

Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.

Q: Despite this risk, you were an advocate of this covert action. But perhaps you yourself desired this Soviet entry into war and looked to provoke it?

B: It isn't quite that. We didn't push the Russians to intervene, but we knowingly increased the probability that they would.

Q: When the Soviets justified their intervention by asserting that they intended to fight against a secret involvement of the United States in Afghanistan, people didn't believe them. However, there was a basis of truth. You don't regret anything today?

B: Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter. We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.

Q: And neither do you regret having supported the Islamic fundamentalism, having given arms and advice to future terrorists?

B: What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?

These words, "carry on a war, unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about demoralization and finally break up"
They ring as true now, as they did then. Only this time the US and it's NATO allies will be demoralized and broken, in the graveyard of empires.

OH and a note of interest, if you recall the Rambo movies?
Besides being bad movies, they served as propaganda. For the consumption of the dumbed down western audience. Collusion between Hollywood and the Military is nothing new.

"As Wilson was pleading in Washington on behalf of the Mujahideens, Rambo was doing the same on the silver screen for America’s public opinion."

Rambo 3; Doing it for his friends!

''Rambo III'' is dedicated ''to the gallant people of Afghanistan,'' and it clearly intends that its politics be taken seriously. The plot sends Rambo into Afghanistan on a rescue mission after Trautman, who has been educating Afghan freedom fighters in the ways of Stinger missiles and is taken prisoner by a smirking, strutting Soviet colonel (Marc de Jonge). This casts Trautman in the unenviable role of political mouthpiece, as he lectures the colonel about Soviet foreign policy. And it makes the Afghan fighters, who are this film's noble Indians, entirely one-dimensional.
