"The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the 'devil' only in order to drive the TV watcher to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US ..."

' ... every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defence against a homicidal maniac ... The essential job is to get people to recognise war propaganda when they see it, especially when it is disguised as peace propaganda.'

"A very good friend of the Bush family, a very close friend of the Bush family, (and I'm working with at lest one or two friends or advisors to every living president right now.) Now this man told me in February of '03, listen very carefully - in February of '03 -- that we would find no weapons of mass destruction, that we had to go in there and free up the second largest proven oil reserve in the world because with China industrializing at ten to fifteen percent a year, and with India industrializing at close to that, there was simply not enough fossil fuel to go around and we were headed toward a catastrophic shortage within the next two to ten years if we didn't maximize the output of these oil producing areas and that this is totally what we were going into Iraq for.

Now, I almost laughed out loud because here's a guy who's a close associate of the Bush family telling me this personally. And it has turned out to be the case. There are no weapons of mass destruction, there was no Al Qaeda presence in Iraq. This was totally about, and I don't care how anyone wants to spin it, we have got to - and from their point of view, if you want to keep these other technologies secret, and you're looking at a world industrializing as rapidly as China and other countries are, you have got to find other sources of fossil fuel, and that's what this was about. Yet it's so tragic because we're sitting in another parallel program in these black boxes, the means to take us completely off the fossil fuel economy, and this is one of the greatest crimes against humanity in the history of the human race.

 Updates On the Iraq War

A salute to those U.S. soldiers who deserted and found their way to Canada. Those young men, who refused combat in the Iraq War, not because of cowardice but from conscience, were a pleasure to hear out on "60 Minutes" on December 9, 2004. They are the future of our Nation and a model for a new, peaceful world; they who realized that they could not blindly follow order in an illegal war.

Shame on those citizens of America, who in their blindness and ignorance demand that the Canadian government sends the deserters back to US so they can be shot under American law!

Robbing the Cradle of Civilization

Iraq Oil One Euro

The Invasion of Iraq: Dollar vs. Euro
Re-denominating Iraqi oil in U. S. dollars, instead of the Euro

[Before the U.S. invasion of Iraq Saddam Hussein changed the oil purchase currency from Dollars to Euro. This seriously threatened the U.S. oil industry, and was a major reason to attack Iraq at that point. Thus, thousands and thousands of innocent people and lots of soldiers have died.]
- If OPEC oil could be sold in other currencies, e.g. the euro, then U.S. economic dominance-dollar imperialism or hegemony-would be seriously challenged. More and more oil importing countries would acquire the euro as their "reserve," its value would increase, and a larger amount of trade would be transacted and denominated in euros. In such circumstances, the value of the dollar would most likely go down, some speculate between 20-40 percent. -

How Much Proof Needed Before the Truth Comes Out?
Now seven leaked British documents raise Iraq war questions -

Now there is Downing II, III, IV, V, VI and VII!

As the evidence mounts, the failure of the media to seriously investigate the issues is baffling. Why aren't they interviewing current and former US military intelligence officials about these reports from the highest levels of British government?

Public Pressure Mounts for Bush to Curtail Iraq War After Katrina Disaster
- President George W. Bush says he can wage war in Iraq and still pay most of the huge bill for rebuilding the hurricane-lashed Gulf Coast. Most Americans don't agree with him. And for the first time, Bush is facing a serious revolt in his own party over how to pay for hurricane relief. -

It reveals that Bush and Blair agreed on war in January 2003 - not March 2003, as they insist. It also reveals they knew there was no legitimate case for war, that Bush was hoping to assassinate Saddam Hussein, and that Bush was so desperate to provoke a war that he even proposed painting US planes to look like UN planes and flying them low over Iraq in hopes of getting shot at - which he thought would be grounds for war. -

In other words, Blackwater is a religious army serving the Pope in Rome through the Order of Malta, which is itself considered under international law, as a sovereign entity with special diplomatic powers and privileges. Like Blackwater, the Order of Malta is “untouchable” because it is at the heart of the elite aristocracy.

- Bush and company have brought in private contractors to provide the water supply to troops and the private contractor, Halliburton, Dick Cheney's former employer, has deemed it unnecessary to provide uncontaminated water to US troops serving in Iraq.

Cheney the Liar

Dick Cheney Admits to War Crimes
- America used to hang people for waterboarding. We hanged people for waterboarding in Dick Cheney’s lifetime. Cheney: "I was aware of the [torture] program, certainly, and involved in helping get the process cleared…that is the Agency [The CIA] in effect came in and wanted to know what they could and couldn’t do. And they talked to me, as well as others, to explain what they wanted to do. And I supported it.” -

Mother Of Fallen Soldier To Camp Out In Tent At Bush Ranch Until She Gets Answers About What She Calls "The Illegal Iraq War"
- Cindy Sheehan, who lost her son last year in Baghdad, was angered by Bush's comments last week that "the fallen soldiers died for a noble cause." Sheehan claims this is a lie, contending the reason her son died was so Bush's friends could profit from the war and "line their greedy pockets with dirty oil money." Sheehan, founder of the peace group called Gold Star Families for Peace, says she staying in a tent until she either gets "arrested or gets Bush to answer questions." -

It is a much more difficult task however to make an impostor's voice sound like the real Saddam's. There is also the danger that the impostor might suddenly and unexpectedly reveal his true identity.
