Innocent Americans die as terrorists trained by US government at home 'Fight Smart' Update - 31 Oct 2001
US funds terrorists in Eastern Europe - Bush must go
'Either you are for terrorism sponsored by the Bush administration or you are against it'
Of course it is now completely 'unpatriotic' for the mainstream press to draw attention to ongoing acts of terrorism by the US around the world. But that's exactly what the London Times appears to have been doing barely a week before Sept 11 (see article below) by revealing America's admission of its current sponsorship of Nicaraguan 'Contra' rebel type operations in Belarus.
According to the Times the US has been adopting such a strategy in Belarus in an attempt to unseat communist president Lukashenko despite the Times' confirmation that "President Lukashenko is popular and most Belarussians fear that a new, pro-Western leader would bring the poverty experienced by many Russians and Ukrainians after the transition to a market economy."
Besides its covert interference in the internal affairs of Belarus the Times also reports elsewhere in eastern Europe that: "former US servicemen believed to be working for the CIA were escorted with Albanian guerrillas from a village in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia earlier this year."
Just one more reason why Bush should start bombing himself in his 'war against terrorism' - or preferably why the American people should come to their senses and ask him and his government to go.
The hypocricy is breathtaking. That so many innocent people in the US and abroad should lose their lives as the cruel consequence of such cynical foreign policy (more below) can only be considered a crime against humanity.
Either you are for terrorism sponsored by the Bush administration or you are against it. If you are against it then please join together with your friends and true American patriots in demanding that Bush and his terrorist acolytes kindly leave.
God bless all peace loving Americans and give them the strength, courage, and wisdom to act.

US adopts 'Contras policy' in communist Belarus
FROM ALICE LAGNADO IN MOSCOW
THE US Embassy in Belarus has admitted that it is pursuing a policy similar to that in 1980s Nicaragua, in which anti-government Contra rebels were funded and supported. President Lukashenko, a dictatorial Communist, is heading for victory in presidential elections on Sunday.
In an unusual admission, Michael Kozak, the US Ambassador to Belarus, said in a letter to a British newspaper that America’s “objective and to some degree methodology are the same” in Belarus as in Nicaragua, where the US backed the Contras against the left-wing Sandinista Government in a war that claimed at least 30,000 lives. Mr Kozak was not available for comment.
Washington said recently that allegations of state-sanctioned death squads operating in Belarus, Europe’s last bastion of communism, were “credible”. Two former state prosecutors, who have been granted political asylum in America, have said that victims were murdered with a special pistol and buried in a cemetery in Minsk.
The ambassador’s disclosure has coincided with moves by the Bush Administration to gain increased political influence in Eastern Europe and the Balkans and with reports in several European newspapers, which said that former US servicemen believed to be working for the CIA were escorted with Albanian guerrillas from a village in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia earlier this year.
Earlier in his career, Mr Kozak served as Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Inter-American Affairs under Presidents Reagan and Bush, working in Panama, Nicaragua and El Salvador, and was Ambassador to Cuba. While Mr Kozak was serving in Nicaragua, Mr Reagan famously compared the Contras to the French Resistance fighters.
President Lukashenko is popular and most Belarussians fear that a new, pro-Western leader would bring the poverty experienced by many Russians and Ukrainians after the transition to a market economy.
A spokesman for the US Embassy in Minsk told The Times that the embassy helped to fund 300 non-governmental organisations (NGOs), including non-state media, but did not fund political parties, since that is banned by law. He admitted that some of the NGOs were linked to those who were “seeking political change”.
"This is about America's energy security. It's also about preventing strategic inroads by those who don't share our values. We're trying to move these newly independent countries toward the west. We would like to see them reliant on western commercial and political interests rather than going another way. We've made a substantial political investment in the Caspian, and it's very important to us that both the pipeline map and the politics come out right."
Bill Richardson 1998, US energy secretary, on US policy on the extraction and transport of Caspian oil, quoted in the Guardian 15 February 2001: 'A discreet deal in the pipeline - Nato mocked those who claimed there was a plan for Caspian oil'

'Inside the White House that was built of lies'
(European Edition, p87)
"[Nixon] lied to his closest staff members, to his Cabinet, to the nation, to the world. The Nixon staff lied to one another and to the President. .....It was, Reeves writes, 'a White House of lies, a house organized for dece
ption... even the insiders themselves could no longer penetrate to reality'.... [At foreign summit meetings], Nixon and his National Security Adviser
, Henry Kissinger, asked the foreign leaders to join them in lies to deceive Nixon's own Secretary of State, William Rogers."
"A former Pakistani diplomat has told the BBC that the US was planning military action against Osama Bin Laden and the Taleban even before last week's attacks. Niaz Naik, a former Pakistani Foreign Secretary, was told by senior American officials in mid-July that military action against Afghanistan would go ahead by the middle of October.... he said it was doubtful that Washington would drop its plan even if Bin Laden were to be surrendered immediately by the Taleban."
