Bush has made it clear.
He is going to attack Iran before he leaves office
The answer is simple
but you will NEVER hear it in the US news media..
Former U.S. Marine Corps officer and UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter talks about the unique influence that the Israel war lobby has on the U.S. news media and U.S. foreign policy.Can anything be done to turn this around?
Ritter has written an important new book “Waging Peace” which answers this question realistically and comprehensively.
It’s the peace manual for our times.
By they way, please note that there is a HUGE difference between the Israeli War Lobby (an alliance of the Israeli war party and corrupt politicians in the US) and Israelis, Jews, and even Zionists.
Many Israelis oppose the behavior of their government as do many Jews in the United States and elsewhere. Also, many “Zionists” are naive people whose idealism has been co-opted by corrupt elements.
To talk of “Israel”, “Jews” and even “Zionists” as the problem is ignorant and counterproductive. It is the Israeli war party and their supporters in the US that is the problem.
You may have seen this, or a variation of it.
If not, it’s good for a laugh.
It’s a parody of a recent video made for Obama
by a group music stars.
Well, I, too and so many truthers cannot imagine the internet without What Really Happened.
I didn’t want to say this but I have a confession. When I started this blog, I knew nothing about politics and I didn’t know how to start or what to do. I found What Really Happened by mere chance and I liked that site. You will find a lot of my first posts here quoted from there. I can say that I am a student of What Really Happened and I’m so proud that I am because I am learning from the best and there still is a lot to learn so I don’t want WRH to stop. I want WRH to grow and to be the internet’s biggest lighthouse of truth.
What Really Happened doesn’t make a regular habit of campaigning for donations but things became tight lately.They don’t have huge corporate sponsors like the TV networks and some of the “gatekeeper” websites. They have neither applied for nor been given any grants by think tanks with agendas. They are totally dependent on small advertisers and your support to keep working and like everyone else in these dark times, They are getting a bit tight. They need your help. Thanks.

Lindsey Williams says it is.He was crystal clear over a year ago that gasoline was headed straight to $4.00 a gallon and he says he knows why.
Williams became an oil industry insider by virtue of his success at mediating labor disputes in the Alaska oil fields.
We heard recently that Egypt has sent back to Israel a delivery of 32 tonnes of tiles that was emitting high levels of radiation. It’s not the first time that it’s happened. We, even, once heard that Egypt imported a cargo of men waist belts which were discovered later to cause sterility. Now, everything coming from Israel is examined to make sure it’s radiation-free.
Another news story coming from Egypt talks about Egyptian authorities threatening to punish Cairo’s luxury Grand Hyatt hotel of its five-star status if its Saudi owner sticks to his refusal to serve alcohol. Last month, Abdulaziz al-Brahim, a member of the Saudi royal family and owner of the coveted luxury property that sits on a tongue of land at the edge of the Nile, decided to get rid of all the alcohol in stock. He ordered the 2,500 bottles of alcoholic beverages at the hotel to be flushed down the toilets.
“300,000 dollars went into the sewers after this decision which totally violates Egypt’s hotel rules,” said Nur, who met the Saudi sheikh last week.
Islam prohibits any beverage that get people intoxicated, both in small and large quantities, whether it is alcohol, drugs, or something else.
But for authorities in Egypt, where drinking alcohol is not banned by law, religion must stop at the doorstep of touristic establishments.
Three glasses of alcohol are enough to rob drinkers of their ability to respond to threats, US researchers from the National Institutes on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism concluded in the first study to show how alcohol affects the response of neuronal circuits to threats.
So, what do you think? Which one of the two above mentioned stories is considered the good deed and which is the bad one? It actually depends on the cultural and religious background of the one who’ll answer this.
It happens all the time.A peaceful demonstration turns violent,
the TV news flashes pictures of mayhem,
the issue is completely forgotten, and
the protesters are entirely discredited.
Would it surprise you to know that police
*engineer* these outcomes?
Three masked police posing as radicals
were caught red handed trying to provoke
violence at a meeting of the so called
“Security and Prosperity Partnership”
P.S. The more successful popular opposition
to corruption is, the more likely, dirty
and violent tricks will be played against
It’s always the same story:Undercover police dress up as protesters and incite, or even engage in, violence.
Uniformed police then take advantage of this to assault legitimate protesters, sometimes brutally.
It’s the oldest trick in the book and the French have a phrase for it: “Agent Provocateur.
Bizarrely, US protesters NEVER seem to get their heads out of their arses and see it coming no matter how many times it gets pulled on them.
In contrast, one labor leader at the Montebello meeting of the so called “Security and Prosperity Summit” in Quebec earned the title “leader” and not only detected this crap as it was talking place, but confronted the government-employed criminals involved and forced them to stand down.
This kind of activity isn’t legitimate police work. It’s thug-for-hire work on behalf of fascists.
Next time you see one of these hulking morons with a mask on his face holding a rock or stick, rip off his mask and photograph him. Don’t expect a shred of help from the gutless news media exposing these vermin. They’ll never follow up on the story, but the photographs are a deterrent.
People mistakenly think that Nazi Germany started with a bang.
No. It didn’t happen that way.
Here’s how it works (notice how many Bush & Co. is using now.):
2. Create a gulag
9. Dissent equals treason
10. Suspend the rule of law
Wolf’s conclusion? Impeachment of Bush and Cheney is not enough. Prosecuting (and jailing) them for crimes committed is the only rational solution.
On this video, Dorothy Thompson speaks on the refugee problem. Refugees live in tents in the Gaza Strip, are given blankets and food by Egyptian soldiers, and receive flour from UNICEF. A Lebanese priest conducts services. Refugees work as plumbers, carpenters, tailors, and shoemakers in the city of Jerusalem. Doctors vaccinate refugees against disease. Shows the squalid living conditions in refugee camps, starving children, and emphasizes the hopeless condition of the refugees.
One of the more bizarre characters in the Bush White House, Condoleezza Rice has managed to hang on while others – the Secretary of Defense, the Attorney General, and other assorted criminals – have left in disgrace.
Secretary of State?
Is this some kind of a sick joke?
