I’ve been feeling very down these past days. More than my usual down...

I spoke to family members.

Radhee said “ They (the Shiites) are fighting each other, why are they pounding our neighborhood again? “ He lives in Adhamiya. He said “ We’re prisoners again. Not just inside this ghetto but inside our homes. Everyday there is an explosion here. Why do they need to attack us ? Baghdad is on fire again...This is never going to end...”

Auntie Sameera said “ Layla, I beg of you, tell the world...” I don’t understand why she said that to me, she knows nothing of my blog. She continued “tell them we can’t take it anymore, we can’t. Let someone have Mercy on us. Have Mercy on us.” And the line got cut off.

Hostages of violence, of greed, of brutality, of dual occupations. Hostages of poverty, disease, unemployment, closed borders and exile...Hostages of sectarianism, chauvinism, corruption...Hostages to embezzlers, gangs, robbers, murderers, sadists, rapists, perverts and killers...

All are guilty.

The charlatan anti-Christ-the Mahdi, the Shiite puppet government, the corrupt Sunni politicians, the Zionist Kurds, the psychopathic dirty Americans, the insane filthy Iranians, the lowly debased Brits, the sold-out sleeping Arabs, the Security firms, the Oil cartels, the West, the East, the International Community, the NGO’s, the Media, the left shits and their shit parties...All are guilty.

All are trying to make a profit one way or another. Either through fame, interest, money, resources, influence or power and the list is endless.

Hostages of a failed state, of a "creative chaos"...Hostages of Silence, of Destruction, of a philosophy of Annihilation.

Hostages in a vacuum, in an abyss, in a senseless cycle, a cycle of Madness... Hostages of the futility of Living.

Hostages under the Devil’s claws, under his grip. The Devil has no mission but to destroy. And the Iraqis have been singled out for that purpose.

So who is going to have mercy on us, us Iraqis ?

Do you understand what I am saying ? Do you ? You Evil bastards - the whole lot of you.

Although I am an american, I don't believe myself to be a psychopath... and as much as there is no way I can understand what it is like to be occupied, I do try to understand how devastating it must be... occupation affects more than just politics and even lives... it is clear from your posts that it affects consciousness, morale, and more... it is an american imperial project, and all colonial projects have done in history is really fuck things up...
I know there is no taking back of this occupation, but I will continue to try to knock the assholes who made these decisions out of power, not only to take back america for people (who aren't rich white straight men) but to end the messes they've reached out to with their greedy little fingers.
Hopefully you can understand that it is not all Americans who are doing this... many of us suffer occupied states ourselves...

Hi Layla,

Is there such a word as mercy? I had forgotten it existed.

For all intents and purposes, that particular word has been negated by the actions of foreigners and some locals in Iraq.

Another word that has been forgotten, peace. A generation growing up that knows nothing but war and sanctions, but no peace.

Stay safe.

Your Aunt says: "Let someone have Mercy on us. Have Mercy on us."

Take it back. Take it back because you know it is not true. The Americans are the only ones who consistently show mercy. We are not a monolith. For evil - or for good. Take it back because your Aunt asks for mercy.

You frequently assert that Iran and the US are in bed with each other to destroy Iraq. Take that back now. Nothing is further from the truth. Iranian leaders only care about Iraq if it advances their regional power ambition. The USA's stated goal is to bring freedom to the region. Our people are the most charitable in the world. The most.

You are depressed because you know you are part of the problem. Your blog serves to galvanize those that hate America. It will indeed lead to deaths of Americans. It will lead to breakdown in protection for your Aunt. It puts forces of evil closer to another fifty year tyranny of Iraq.

Psychopaths have no conscience. Psychpaths do not have an ability to easily empathize what what another is experiencing. They cant place themselves in the shoes of another and relate to what the other is experiencing.

Psychopaths that have been interviewed and studied laugh about their victims and tell of how funny it was to see expressions on the faces of their victims as they killed them.

Was it wrong to try the German regime in Nuremberg?

Think about this Greg. The United States " corporate / government " attempted to build a case against Iraq and they made false allegations and provided manufactured evidence.

The United State's allegation of weapons of mass destruction, yellow cake from Niger, reconstituting a nuclear arms program, Iraq being a military threat to the region, Powell seated before the entire World at the United Nations alleging tons of biological & chemical weapons were, for a fact, inside Iraq..with Rummsfeld claiming to know exactly where these weapons were.

Now what if China is setting back building a case against the United States? They can do that you know. They can bring up actual facts and present them to the World.

They (perhaps with even Russian assistance) claim that the United States is a grave threat to the security of their national interests, that the United States has proven to the entire World that they are capable of anything. They can claim that the United States has taken unilateral destructive actions that completely negated the trials & outcome of Nuremberg. China can claim that the United States is in a massive debt obligation to China and that it sees no scenario where the United States will be in a position to pay back such debt.

China can have a very very long list of facts Greg. they do not have to lie before the United Nations. They can bring up Tibet, Taiwan, bullying China aircraft in China's airspace ( which Russia can do likewise ). Do you see other countries having 700 + known military bases around the planet from other countries?

Why would it be wrong for China to bring it's warships & subs close to the shores of America? Why would it be wrong for China to claim that the United States has nuclear, chemical & biological weapons and is a threat? Has China ever come over the oceans and had midair collissions with our military aircraft?

China & India are onto the United State's government's investment strategies towards and in China. Both countries on the very same day put a halt to those shananigans.

You believe these things are "OK" because you can not see it from another's perspective.

Iran. As you should know, the United States uses the proverbial " 2 prong approach ". They try to bring another country into alignment by meetings / talk, while conducting military manueverings. Just as the United States did with Iraq, by making contacts inside Iraq with traitors, they will do the same with Iran.

Greg from USA is a troll, and should not be fed.

He continues to flail away at Layla, who has more courage in her little finger than he does in his entire American, well-fed body. He continues to pretend that America still holds some sort of moral high ground. He is a deluded fool, a sterling example of the perfect storm of ignorance, propaganda, and apathy.

Greg reaches deep into his anus to pull out little gems like this:
"The USA's stated goal is to bring freedom to the region. Our people are the most charitable in the world. The most.

Nobody here asked the USA to "bring freedom", and all that the USA has brought is chaos. As for charity, it begins at home, so the USA would do well to clean up its own backyard and help the millions of homeless in that country, along with creating a decent cradle-to-grave healthcare system...that ought to keep the USA occupied (nice word there) for a while, minding its own business.

Greg will no doubt dispute this, and claim that the American healthcare system is the best in the world, and that people come from all over the world to America for healthcare...yawn.

Greg doesn't realize, in his television soundbite-induced coma, that the only "freedom" he has in America is the freedom to dissent...which will never bring about any changes. Just try changing something in your own country sometime, Greg from USA, and see what happens. Your only value to your country is either as a wage-slave consumer, or as a mercenary. Accept your status as TOOL, and STFU already.

that I trend libertarian and there are a lot of policies that have been enacted over the lifetime of the USA that have eroded our

freedoms - I would like to see the pendulum swing back the other way - but not quite far enough to make a "wild west".

Of course we do. If congress passes outraegous laws, call your congressman! Enough calls will light a fire under their butt, and

they will change things lickety split.

Did you vote on the Energy & Environmental laws? Y or N
Of course not, our elected representatives vote on these laws. Very few federal proposals go on the ballot. Legislature makes the

laws. The executive (President) enforces the laws. This is part of our system of

href="">Checks and Balances
. This system was not cooked up in someone's back

yard over a few beers. It is the result of hundreds of years of trial and error. That's why I can't understand why every country that

we liberate is so determined to re-invent the wheel. Why not start with a copy of our constitution and then add amendments to suit

your needs. When you consider the Iraqi constitution, it has many of the same freedoms as the US constitution, but many more holes in

the wording, which can lead to all the sorts of problems (e.g. like civil wars) that we had to overcome in the beginning

Did you have a vote on if the Patriot Act is to be enacted as law? Y or N
No, and we don't need a "Patriot Act" to codify wartime

that the President already has guaranteed by the constitution.

Did you ever vote on Presidential Executive Orders? Y or N
If I did, then they would be "Greg's executive orders"

The fact is, neither you nor I have this "freeedom & democracy" you continuously refer to.
Well, from the local town level through the state and federal level, our legislators and chief executives are elected by the

people every November 7. The candidates are unrestricted. The parties are unrestricted. If that is not a democracy, what is?

As for feeedoms, I could rattle off a list of freedoms that in principle can be found in some communist government constitutions. In

practice, that is not the case, so I will ask you - WHO IS GOING TO TAKE MY FREEDOMS AWAY???

2. Who is going to tell me I can't organize protests?
3. Who is going to shut down Churches, Temples, Mosques, etc?
4. Who is going to tell me I cannot worship whatever religion I want?
5. Who is going to tell the newspapers what to write?
6. Who is going to take my guns away?
7. Who is going to come into my house and use it for government purposes?
8. Who is going to search my house?

10. Who is going to beat a confession out of me?
11. Who is going to compel me to testify against myself?
12. Who is going to take my house, my car, my money and give it to someone else?
13. Who is going to put me in jail for months without charge?
14. Who is going to convict me for a crime my fellow townspeople would not convict me for?
15. Who is going to force me to prove my innocence?
16. Who is going to sentence me to a caning/beating?
17. Who is going to fine me an excessive amount or charge me excessive bail?
18. Who will fine me for more than one child?
19. Who will tell my town that it cannot run things the way it so chooses?

Was it wrong to try the German regime in Nuremberg?
What else could we do? They murdered 6 million Jews. It is not only what they did but HOW they went about doing it. And the Japanese rape of Nanking. And the Battan death march. This happened because the German and Japanese not only viewed us as "untermenschen", but somehow hated us for being inferior or for being weak and surrendering as in the Battan Death March

Do you know what a cock-fight is? Well Im gonna tell you just in case and I hope you dont mind.
I am telling you becasue you are spot on that greed & evil is what is driving events in Iraq.

A cock fight is where 2 roosters fight and onlookers palce their bets on what rooster will win. If they bet correctly, then money is earned. Simple enough...unless ya ask the roosters.

Keep the above in mind please and lets talk about derivatives. Derivatives are another tool sed in the markets where one can place 'bets'. One does not have to actually have ownership of the commodity being bet simply places their 'bet' on if that particular ( lets use stock here )..on if that stock will increase in value or decreas in value at an agreed upon time in the future. The future time can be in days, months or year.

A tremendous amony of money can be made and it's just paper transactions. Yer not buying the stock, just betting on if the price will rise or fall by a certain time in the future.

The United States government made a tremendous amount of wealth because of 9/11. This is a fact.
Did Israel make money from 9/11? This woud be intersting to know.

Think about that cock-fight with those 2 roosters. If one knew beforehand what rooster is sure to win, then you could place yer bet on that winning rooster.

I may be worng on this but I think I reall reading where the United States lowered the 'aid' to Israel. Just something I keep in mind. I DID read however where this year Israel will begin using derivatives in their markets.

Derivatives come in many forms; oil, gas, wheat, rice, etc.

I believe Israel is going to be up to even further hellish events and in particulat in the MidEast (as always). Events can be created for market maniplulation. Israel will be in the derivative game this year.

Think about what happens to oil prices when major pipelines are bombed.

I recall shortly after the invasion into Iraq, where some talk was going around on 'placing bets' in the financial market on whether a 'terror strike' would occur by a given time in the future. Instead of using roosters, they're talking about people. Pretty F'n insane.

Nobody made profits off 911. Here is a snopes article with results of the investigation

Here is a letter from Tamim Ansary with the perspective of an Afghan-American who wanted liberation but argued that the Afghan people were victims of Bin Laden. My question to the Iraqis on this blog is whether you want to risk being owned by this monster again

BY: Tamim Ansary

I've been hearing a lot of talk about "bombing Afghanistan back to the Stone Age." One talk radio host said this would mean killing innocent people, people who had nothing to do with this atrocity, but, "We're at war, we have to accept collateral damage. What else can we do?" Minutes later, another TV pundit asked if we "have the belly to do what must be done."

And I thought about these issues being raised especially hard, because I am from Afghanistan. Even though I've lived here for 35 years, I've never lost track of what's going on there. So I want to tell anyone who will listen how it all looks from where I'm standing.

I speak as one who hates the Taliban and Osama bin Laden. There is no doubt in my mind that these people were responsible for the atrocity in New York. I agree that something must be done about those monsters.

But the Taliban and bin Laden are not Afghanistan. They're not even the government of Afghanistan. The Taliban are a cult of ignorant psychotics who took over Afghanistan in 1997. Bin Laden is a political criminal with a plan. When you think Taliban, think Nazis. When you think bin Laden, think Hitler. And when you think "the people of Afghanistan," think "the Jews in the concentration camps."

It's not only that the Afghan people had nothing to do with this atrocity. They were the first victims. They would exult if someone came in and took out the Taliban and the rat's nest of international thugs holed up in their country.

Some say, "Why don't the Afghans rise up and overthrow the Taliban?" The answer is, they're starved, damaged, incapacitated, exhausted. Credible international aid organizations estimate that there are 500,000 disabled orphans in Afghanistan — a country with no economy, no food. Two million men were killed during the war with the Soviets. There are millions of Afghan widows and the Taliban has been executing women for being women. The soil is littered with landmines. The farms were all destroyed by the Soviets. These are a few of the reasons why the Afghan people have not overthrown the Taliban.

We come now to the question of bombing Afghanistan back to the Stone Age. Trouble is, that's been done. The Soviets took care of it already. Make the Afghans suffer? They're already suffering. Level their houses? Done. Turn their schools into piles of rubble? Done. Eradicate their hospitals? Done. Destroy their infrastructure? Cut them off from medicine and health care? Too late. Someone already did all that. New bombs would only stir the rubble of earlier bombs. Would they at least get the Taliban? Not likely.

In today's Afghanistan, only the Taliban eat. Only they have the means to move around. They'd slip away and hide. Maybe the bombs would get some of those disabled orphans, they don't move too fast, they don't even have wheelchairs. But flying over Kabul and dropping bombs wouldn't really be a strike against the criminals who did this horrific thing. Actually it would only help the Taliban — by crushing the same people they've been raping all this time.

So what can be done, then?

Let me now speak with true fear and trembling. The only way to get bin Laden is to go in there with ground troops. When people speak of "having the belly to do what needs to be done," they're thinking in terms of having the belly to kill as many as needed. Pushing aside moral qualms and killing innocent people, what's actually on the table is Americans dying. And not just because some Americans would die fighting their way through Afghanistan to bin Laden's hideout. It's much bigger than that. Will other Muslim nations just stand by? We're flirting with a world war between Islam and the West.

And guess what: that's bin Laden's program. That's exactly what he wants. That's why he did this. Read his speeches and statements. It's all right there. He really believes Islam would beat the west. It might seem ridiculous, but he figures if he can polarize the world into Islam and the West, he's got a billion soldiers. If the west wreaks a holocaust in those lands, that's a billion people with nothing left to lose, that's even better from bin Laden's point of view. He's probably wrong, in the end the west would win, whatever that would mean, but the war would last for years and millions would die, not just theirs but ours. Who has the belly for that?

Bin Laden does. Anyone else?
(Tamim Ansary)

Isn't it ironic that Iraq turned out to be the place that America sacrificed her boys to try and win Iraq without losing the Iraqis?

I take it you never read the book House Of Saud / House Of Bush. James Bath is an interesting human being indeed.

Yer saying it's OK for Iraqis to get raped and not those living in Afghanistan? Yer saying that becasue you believe the Iraqis are now 'free' that the consequence of getting raped is trivial, but because you say Taliban are doing it, its terrible?

I started looking into your link:

It uses "Mike Vreeland" to back up the claims in the article:
"In an interview with this writer published on April 4, Vreeland clearly stated his belief that Al Qaeda operations had been completely penetrated by U.S. intelligence services. That belief is supported by a statement in his warning letter."

Within minutes I came upon:

"We discovered that the [warning letter] note that Vreeland wrote in jail could not have possibly been interpreted as a warning of anything. We discovered that during the time he was supposed to have been in Moscow uncovering the 9/11 plot he was actually in the custody of police in St. Thomas, Ontario. We discovered that his navy records indicate that he didn't make it through basic training and that he presented false identification when he signed up. We found evidence that he didn't graduate high school. We discovered that the alleged relentless drug dealer was actually Vreeland's brother-in-law. We found that Vreeland had an extensive criminal record, having spent the majority of his adult life in jail and that he was wanted in at least six states. We found the victims of the alleged frauds which Vreeland is accused of committing in Michigan and many people in law enforcement who related details of Vreeland's alleged crimes.

We also quickly discovered that almost nothing Vreeland ever said on the record could possibly be true. Several judges in Canada and the US have called Vreeland a man of little credibility. Other journalists noticed gaping holes in the story and reported both the descrepencies and the opinions of various judges."


km, you could use any one of them to support a conspiracy theory. Once their credibility is shown to be shot, you could say that the CIA purposely hires people like that as part of their cover, and you might be right. Who knows? Like I said before, how can you prove a negative?

There are real conspiracies out there. The real ones are probably even more off the wall than you can imagine. The problem is that of all the conspiracies, only -I guestimate- 0.01% are true while another 0.09% are undiscovered.

km, ask yourself, how many conspiracies do you lean on to support your image of reality?

Hi Layla! Seems the powers-that-be are frightened of the truth – hence the attempted blockade. In relation to the ”left shit sell- outs” you have referred to. I was browsing through the “London Review of Books” Ed. 24th April,2008, and happened to come across an article under the “Diary” section, written by the pro-Moqtada Sadr supporter, dressed as a so-called western progressive Patrick Cockburn. This article is about his trip to Iraq.

In his article he tells us that Moqtada Sadr has 10 million supporters which make up the majority of the Shia who are the majority In Iraq. The following piece clearly substantiates Cockburn's support of the Iranian spawned ayatolllahs.

“I spent a night al-Khadamiyah, and ancient Shia district centred on a Shia shrine which is surrounded by shops selling gold jewellery and cheap restaurants for pilgrims. Some Shia friends suggested I come with them to the shrine, if anybody asked who I was, they told me to say I was a Turk. This seemed a dangerous idea and we gave it up as we approached the shrine and saw the tight security. We went to see Ayatollah Hussein al-Sadr, a relative of Muqtada with moderate views, who was giving his blessings to Shia dignitaries and spent the night in a hotel which is, in effect, his guest-house. There were plenty of soldiers and police in the streets but I wouldn't have stayed had I not been under the protection of the ayatollah.”

Cockburn does the US/Zionist-Israel/Iran proud. Well, we have news for this scungy lot. “Layla and all those who share her truth of Iraq will not be silenced!.” So stick that in your reactionary pipes and smoke it. And hope you choke on it!

Long Live the Iraqi Resistance!

In Solidarity

To my fellow Americans,

Until we realize that our founding father's dream was subverted almost immediately after the revolution, and we now live in a completely brain washed state of slavery to our corporate masters, we will never be able to stop the senseless killing. Wake up America, 9/11 was a staged attack the war on terror is a fraud, psychopathic devil worshipers are running our lives.
Stop loving your slavery, stop being conned, lets get these criminal child killers out of power. I cant even fathom the depths of these evil bastards who are brainwashing us to think torturing children is good. The entire american media is a LIE, its all propaganda.

Fight the New World Order,
Stop the murder

Americans are working against the Occupation of Iraq in different ways.

As for the LEFT, former CIA agent in Vietnam, Ralph McGehee explained that the CIA has created it's own human rights groups all over the world, via NED and USAID. Even if NED and USAID sometimes seem to help people, ultimately they are CIA.

As for PATRICK COCKBURN and his father ALEX COCKBURN, The NATION magazine puts out some good info and always a left-leaning version (or smokescreen) of the story, but The Nation was purchased by a top OSS/CIA official, William vanden Heuval, in the 50s (he directly served CIA founder, William Donovan) and it's now run by his daughter, Katrina vanden Heuval, who also came up interning and working for her dad's friends.

Katrina vanden Heuval's first employer was also once the employer or business partner of Prescott Bush. Imagine that. Yet she's been on TV countering Michael Ledeen, who is one of Bush's top advisors, a particularly ruthless and openly pro-fascist pro-Israeli Jew.

Alex Cockburn has published some scathing critiques and exposes of US policies, established credibility, but he has also published coverups and justifications that seem bizarre, if you know more. (For example, Cockburn defends the official JFK-Oswald story, despite many contradictions, including the Appendix to the official Warren Report about Oswald the supposed Soviet traitor getting a LOAN from the USG to return. I mean, it must be THAT important that the JFK coverup continue that Cockburn is assigned that task.)

Out of all the different 9-11 conspiracy theorists in America, most of them have something suspect about them, their connections, or parts of their story that are false. Ruppert did a good explanation about CIA, but threw in a lot of bizarre twists, and a LONG convoluted book that would seem to have taken many years, and a huge budget, to write.

However, the US SENATE REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE detailed US military collaboration with Al-Qaeda and Osama in Kosovo in the 90's, long after Al-Qaeda officially became "an enemy". Al-Qaeda working in Kosovo, with weapons transfers coming from *IRAN*.

I asked the local pro-war radio guy if he's going to celebrate March 21, Al-Qaeda Day, according to Ronald Reagan (it was actually to celebrate the Afghan Muj, but most Americans consider them one and the same).

The WACL (Jap Fascists, Nazis, American fascists, Korean fascists), is an underground group which ravaged Latin America, tied to CIA and Heritage Foundation. A Cuban anti-terror website described Osama Bin Laden as a Middle East rep for the WACL. This makes sense of the Heritage foundation support for Afghan Muj guerillas/terrorists LOBBY groups, NOT for RAWA and other democratic forces.

Prof. Michel Chossudovsky is a Canadian economist who fills in some of those blanks about Al-Qaeda and Osama, as well as is possible, but he's "professorly", he's not a *star* of 9-11 activism, and some of his own peers like Noam Chomsky and Michael Parenti seem to act like he doesn't exist. Chossudovsky covers what is known from official sources, government documents, official newspapers of the ruling states, and Oil and Gas Journal and the like. Nothing as sexy (or full of mistakes) as Loose Change.

There's more, even sketchy stories about Osama touring military bases in the US for weapons under the name of Tim Osman.

But what is ABSOLUTELY KNOWN about OBL and Al-Qaeda, particularly from Republican Party and other official sources, is sufficiently revealing and damning of the whole American Al-Qaeda September 11 HOAX. Whatever is going on, it is NOT what they are telling Americans on TV.

Greg - no TV show or news show, even the most anti-Clinton like that "Road to 9-11", has ever mentioned the Republican Senate Report on US relations w Al-Qaeda. I'd guess because although it was under Clinton, it was PENTAGON and INTELLIGENCE policy, first and foremost, not "Democratic Party" who was running that.

Clearly now, the United States is a military dictatorship, run under the guise of a republic. The legislators and staffers are voted in office, or placed in office, but nobody trumps Pentagon and CIA except perhaps other more hidden agencies, and those people on Wall Street whose interests the CIA represents. (CIA directors and high officers have mostly been Wall Street, not military.)

How many Americans know this? It's not really hidden, per se -- there's books and documents published on the Web, some going back a few decades -- except by obscurity. Our FAITH in the system depends on our not knowing this. The big question: who will save us Obama, Hillary, or McCain? Hah. Only WE can.

More and more people are knowing this stuff, and telling others, but I've seen highly educated people SMUGLY and ARROGANTLY mock these facts as "whacko conspiracy theory", despite verification from official sources such as those mentioned, including the government and some govt officials. It's as though various confusing parallel realities exist for our population. It's difficult for any person to sift through all the conflicting and contradictory stories, including those apparently planted to add confusion, and discover "the truth".

Yes it is difficult for any person to sift through all the conflicting and contradictory stories. I refuse to believe that a conspiracy on the order of magnitude to execute 911 on ourselves, or that our government is run by the CIA, or that the Jews were behind the holocaust, etc. Such theories cause too much cognitive dissonance. It is too painful to swallow. I don't care if the MSM reported it tomorrow, I would not believe it.

You see, there are too many people here that love their country to let conspirators take over. Too many people who take an oath to defend not the country, but the CONSTITUTION. For that reason, you will not see any military dictatorship here in the USA. Any attempt would cause an immediate split where the top ranking military commanders would turn against their superiors in order to restore the constitution.

That's just one reason why I don't understand why newborn countries do not at least start out with the same constitution and laws. Instead they put pride first and risk another succession of military coups and tin pot dictators. But where is their nationalistic pride when it comes to protecting their countrymen from death squads? Where is their pride when they order people off a bus and rifle through their IDs to see what sect they belong to?

And just a footnote, karlmarx was never right! He claimed in one of his articles that Turkey would start World War III! Karl, although it rhymes, you must never confuse being a Turk, with being a 'jerk'. The Chinese Ming Dynasty could tell you, they spent yonks building the Chinese Wall, to try and keep the Turks away. Even the Native Americans who are soooo adaptable,cannot figure out the magic!

Since we are so conspiracy happy, I have a conspiracy for you. I will call it the Greg conspiracy:

After the gulf war, maybe China was alarmed at how far ahead the US was in terms of military power. Certainly the Kosovo war was alarming. At that point maybe they set up an asymmetric war against the US in order to inflict upon us another "unwinnable war" A war that would drain our resources and occupy our attention away from them while they build their strength.

Here is an even more far fetched one: Maybe the Soviet Union realized it was overextended and too far behind the US economically. So maybe they dissolved in a more controlled manner than we realize. Maybe their plan is to consolidate their power, follow the Chinese model to build their wealth, and combine with China to defeat the capitalists in an asymmetric war.

The draining defeat at the hands of the Islamists serves to return the USA to isolationism and loosens our grip on the world economy. The economic center of gravity switches to the east. Once in the lead economically, the China-Russian alliance can return to their goal: world communism. But this time they will be in control of the means of production on a global scale and the US will no longer be in a position to oppose them. The US will be too dependent on the nations of the east for their daily existence.

Using enabling technology to guarantee efficiency and control corruption - technology that did not exist until recently - they can switch their economies back to a central planned communist model. By leveraging their monopoly on certain world resources, they can guarantee supremacy over the capitalist nations. By now these nations are either third world or in serious decline. With the aid of local left wing parties the capitalists will willingly switch to the communist model, now proven to be superior all along.

With the conversion of the USA to socialism and finally communism, the big three, with India will become the big four. The final step will be to subjugate the Middle eastern nations. This will be accomplished in most cases using socialist left parties already in place. Ironically Saudi Arabia will probably never be converted. However with the formation of one world government and sufficient control of world resources - especially oil, the Saudis will be no threat provided the Wahabbi influences outside the kingdom are contained/neutralized. Saudi Arabia will be left alone as war brings little benefit.

That's my conspiracy theory of the day. I find it very entertaining and very alluring.

Hello and thank you for your comment. You seem to imply that this all new to America. That before it was not like that, but that you've all woken up to the fact, one fine morning, to realize that you are living under an occupation.

Frankly comparing your "occupation" at home to THIS occupation is belittling the reality of what America has done to the Iraqis under occupation. And you are not giving Iraqis justice that way either.

I understand that you don't wish to be put in the same bag as the psychopaths, but can you deny the fact that 99% of Americans don't give a fuck one way or another ?

And please explain to me why is incumbent upon me to differentiate who is who, don't you think that the Americans job is to do that and not me...

wow, some information you've got at your fingertips...
My question is why does Chussodowsky (I can't be bothered to check the spelling of his name) is so adamant about a strike on Iran ?

The info you gave on AQ in Kosovo armed with weapons from Iran is fascinating to say the least.

Hence by correlation, one can also presume that AQ in Iraq is also partially armed by Iran along with the US.

Ah, i see. This really isn't a political arguement we're having. You simply believe things which, if true. Would make you correct. But, they are false. And you lose.

LMAO@ "The charlatan anti-Christ-the Mahdi"

Anyone with even half a brain knows there were no "Weapons of Mass Destruction" in Iraq. In spite of hundreds of worldwide protests against the invasion and the U.N.'s giving Iraq a clean report, George W. Bush pushed relentlessly for the attack on Iraq. Of course, it is just fine for Israel and the USA to have all the weapons of mass destruction they please with no outside interference whatsoever. We all know Mr. Bush is a "born again" Christian.

The real reason behind all of this seems to point towards the destruction of important ancient relics and documents that *prove* Judaism, and Christianity are lies. Saddam Hussein believed himself to be the reincarnation of Nebuchadnezzar. With this belief, he spent some $500 million dollars during the 1980's attempting to reconstruct Ancient Babylon, the capitol of Nebuchadnezzar. Over sixty million bricks were created to replace the walls of Babylon with the engraving "To King Nebuchadnezzar in the reign of Saddam Hussein."

There were many ancient temples and relics buried beneath the sands of Iraq that were proof of the origins of humanity. Whether they are still there given the invasion is unknown. American and British GI's were given the go ahead from the top brass to destroy and/or loot whatever they pleased from the Iraqi museums.

Saddam Hussein was also working on restoring the Ancient Ashurbanipal Library, which was the earliest known collected and catalogued library in the world. The texts therein originated before the flood. British archeologists in the mid 19th century at Nineveh excavated some 25,000 cuneiform tablets assembled by King Ashurbanipal which nearly all of are now in the British Museum.

In April of 2002, the Iraqi archeologists asked the British Museum if they would allow casts of the tablets to be made. Though copies were made in the past of certain tablets, this would have been the first time any significant number would have been made available as copies.

The proposed reconstructed library at Nineveh would have held copies of all of the tablets from the British Museum and was planned to be a center for scholars and a tourist attraction. Next door to the library was to be a center for cuneiform study. Plans were also made to excavate one of the wings of King Ashurbanipal's Palace in Kuyunjik Mound where it was hoped that thousands of other buried tablets would be found.

There are some 10,000 archeological sites scattered across Iraq and most of them have not even been touched. According to archeologists, thieves have broken into the Iraqi Museums repeatedly and have stolen Sumerian artifacts (This occurred before the war as well). Expensive gold jewelry and ornaments were left behind. What they went after were the ancient records in the form of cylinders and cuneiform tablets.

U.N. relief workers and foreign diplomats were several times accused by the Iraqi government of smuggling these artifacts out of the country. In summer of 2002, an Iraqi landlord was cleaning a vacant Baghdad apartment that was formerly occupied by a foreign diplomat. The landlord found two cartons of archeological fragments. The Iraqi government never named the diplomat or his country.

"Saddam assuredly knows that the release of documentation proving Judaism and Christianity as derivatives or copies of an ancient Sumerian religion could have a devastating effect on global affairs."

"When George W. Bush stood before the Washington Monument in January 2001, during his inauguration he borrowed a surprising image from the past. Referring to America twice he said: And an angel still rides the whirlwinds and directs this storm."

Throughout the ages after the manifestation of Judaism and Christianity, every attempt has been made from mass murder to the destruction and razing of entire cities and the genocide of entire peoples to keep the lid on this lie. i.e. the lie of Xtianity and the Ubiquitous Nazarene.

Why aren't you turning the other cheek, and forgiving your enemy, like a good little Xtian, Layla?

Regarding the link below: What Fascism Looks Like.

Noah Feldman on the Colbert Report.

The Colbert Report is satire. Stephen Colbert was a member on teh Daily Show With Jon Stewart. Colbert did comedy skitches on that show. Colbert then abot 3 years ago started his own show.

Jon Stewart pokes fum of alot of things and mostlu targets both sides od US governemnt; the Republicans & the Democrats and of course the Bush Corp.

WHat Colbert does and his angle he uses is this; he is acting as if he is a true-blue / down to the bone / hardcore Neocon supporter. His character he uses on his show is a blend of Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reily and whatever other persona he can use that marches in goose-step with the neocons.

So with this character that Colbert uses on his show, he is actually pointing out the stupidity of the Neocon's thinking and also points out how idiotic Fox News is.

As you notice on his stage,it is covered with US flags and bald eagles and such. These are props for satire making fun of 'nationalism'.

I try to catch the Colbert Reprt & the Daily Show every nite. Both programs are showing how idiotic things are, but each show has a different approach in doing it.
