By Hans Boes

[This article is translated from the German.]

Fundamental principles of the American republic have been thrown overboard by Spygate (the current spying scandal of the Bush administration). The US government spied on all the people without any judicial control. This is the presumption of different observers. Many are increasingly surprised at the gentle approach of the democratic opposition at a time when the majority of Americans are for an impeachment of the president.

The Bush administration is suspected of manipulating the elections in 2000 in Florida and also in 2004 in Florida and Ohio. The reports continue about hacked electronic voting machines on the eve of the coming Congressional elections.

In his first article in 2006, Paul Craig Roberts described the Bush administration as a “criminal administration.” Roberts is a seasoned republican, a former member of the Reagan administration, not some leftist hothead.

The Bush administration crossed the Rubicon according to Roberts when Bush set himself above the law in the course of the bugging scandal. Instead of ending unconstitutional bugging practices, informants are criminalized and journalists are questioned and pressured by the Department of Justice. Robert writes:
„Compared to Spygate, Watergate was a kindergarten picnic. The Bush administration’s lies, felonies, and illegalities have revealed it to be a criminal administration with a police state mentality and police state methods. Now Bush and his attorney general have gone the final step and declared Bush to be above the law. Bush aggressively mimics Hitler’s claim that defense of the realm entitles him to ignore the rule of law.“
According to Roberts, Watergate compared to Spygate was a kindergarten picnic. For Roberts, the American government is a criminal association with a police-state mentality and police-state methods. Now Bush with his conduct declares himself above the law. Roberts asks:
„What will the federal courts do? When Hitler challenged the German judicial system, it collapsed and accepted that Hitler was the law. Hitler’s claims were based on nothing but his claims, just as the claim for extra-legal power for Bush is based on nothing but memos written by his political appointees.“
What will the Supreme Court do? Will it collapse in view of the executive power as the German courts did under the Nazis? Or will the Supreme Court prosecute Bush for violating basic rights of the American constitution, the most pernicious crimes?


In March 2006, Roberts put more coal on the fire when he asked: Will there be a second September 11? Roberts explained in detail why he believes the Bush administration despite all logic holds to an Iran attack. He concluded that Bush needs a terrorist attack that is quickly blamed on Islamic forces or Iran to justify that kind of adventure.
„Readers, whose thinking runs ahead of that of most of us, tell me that another 9/11 event will prepare the ground for a nuclear attack on Iran. Some readers say that Bush, or Israel as in Israel’s highly provocative attack on the Jericho jail and kidnapping of prisoners with American complicity, will provoke a second attack on the US. Others say that Bush or the neoconservatives working with some "black ops" group will orchestrate the attack.“
In February 2006, the American Congress passed a law reintroducing conscription.
The new book by Wolfgang Eggert “First Manhattan-Then Berlin” points in the same direction. For years, Eggert has focused on the influence of religious sects on politics and the secret service. September 11, 2001 and the London train bombs were botched-up jobs of this elite-based clique, according to Eggert. There will be at least one more attack in the heart of Europe.

According to Eggert, different messianic circles are working on an Armageddon in the Middle East and an attack on Iran is only the next step. A dramatic trigger is necessary to that end.

A terrorist attack at the World Cup in Germany would offer an ingenious pretext for the imminent attack on Iran. Germany would be drawn into the general war fray and worldwide solidarity endangered. Up to now Germany has been restrained in the Iraq war. As with 9/11, many of the victims will be from different countries. For the war-mongerers, this can be marketed optimally in the national media.

Now the former CIA-insider and former presidential advisor Ray McGovern warns of that scenario:
„Former CIA analyst and Presidential advisor Ray McGovern (...) fears that staged terror attacks across Europe and the US are probable in order to justify the Bush administration's plan to launch a military strike against Iran, which he thinks will take place in June or July.“
McGovern emphasizes that three US-aircraft carriers are stationed in the region. There is also a French carrier. In June 2006, there will be a NATO-exercise in the Black Sea with an Israeli naval formation for the first time.
The cannon boats are in place. Only the all-decisive trigger is lacking.

Wolfgang Eggert gives us a checklist for predicting such a terrorist attack. Perhaps this list can help prevent an attack and create awareness for the backgrounds of this attack.
If someone could put a terror seismograph in a political discussion forum, many would cooperate in preventing a new 9/11.

Who Is Planning World Soccer Terror?

10.06.2006 22:02

Editor's Note

German skinheads and Neo-Nazis calling President Ahmadinejad "our friend" serves the US sponsored propaganda campaign against Iran in a very direct way because it portrays the Iranian president as a Nazi protagonist. The broader question is: who controls and finances the Neo-Nazi hooligans?


A potential major terrorist attack in the context of the World Soccer Championship in Germany for months has been the primary issue of concern of German and European police authorities. As the June 9 opening day of the games nears, a new factor has been added to the conventional scenarios: the announced mobilization of neo-Nazi hooligans in support of Iran, as Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made it known that he would like to be present at the games played by his national team.

The introduction of the Iran element makes it obvious for every serious political strategist, that what we are dealing with here, has to do with strategies for world government being cooked up, not in basement hideouts of deranged soccer hooligans, but in sky-high offices in Washington and London. In fact, whereas police forces in Germany are looking for potential terrorist threats at ground level, they should raise their eyes to those who, in this moment, would want a major terrorist incident, for the purpose of building a world dictatorship.

The intersection of two events, the World Cup championship and the arrival in mid-June of the one French and three U.S. naval carrier groups in the Indian Ocean and Persian Gulf, near Iran, provide the muscle for attempting a global coup by the Cheney crowd.

Neo-Nazi Mobilization The World Cup Soccer tournament will last from June 9 to July 9, during which period there will be 62 matches in 14 German cities, culminating with the finals game in Berlin. This is perhaps the largest sports event in the world, which takes place every fourth year. It is calculated that millions of fans will travel to Germany, whereas 2 billion will watch it on TV throughout the world.

Although hooligan violence has become a rather "routine" matter on those occasions in which British, Dutch, German, Italian, Polish, and other radical fan groups come together in a competing national context, this time, a new dimension was added: The Iranian President announced plans to travel to Germany to watch the games involving the national team. This has offered the pretext to neo-Nazi groupings to announce demonstrations and marches in support of "our friend," the "anti-Semitic" Ahmadinejad. [The president of Iran has been misquoted with regard to his alleged anti-Semitic statements, essentially with a view to demonizing the Iranian regime, Global Research Editor] A demonstration has been announced for June 17 in Frankfurt, when Iran will play Portugal. In Leipzig, the right-wing NPD (National Democratic Party) will activate itself for the Iran-Angola match, and in Nuremberg for the Iran-Mexico game.

The NPD mobilization involves not only Iran: A march in Gelsenkirchen has been announced for June 10, to follow the match involving Poland. Polish hooligans are notoriously among the most violent on the soccer scene. The police have prohibited the demonstration.

The Italians have announced a new organization, called "Ultras Italia," which popped up first in 2002, and collects hooligans from the most active, neo-Nazi-dominated fan groupings throughout the country. Italian hooligans have announced special effects for the Italy-U.S.A match, on June 17, in Kaiserslautern.

The picture will be filled out by the other main actors on the scene: 20,000 British hooligans will arrive in Frankfurt June 10 for the England-Paraguay match, for which only 10,000 have tickets. Also, the Dutch hooligans, with Nazi-like orange helmets, the national color, are expected.

Although there will be plenty of opportunity for "spontaneous" violence, actions have seemingly been planned by the groups, in a secret meeting in mid-March, at Hitler's birthplace, the town of Braunau, in Austria.

`Secret' Planning Meeting According to a report published by Italian journalist Paolo Berizzi, in La Repubblica of March 20, about 70 members of neo-Nazi-dominated hooligan organizations met in Braunau to plan violent actions during the World Cup tournament in Germany. "Thus we will set the World Cup on fire," was the headline of the report, quoting from a document, reportedly signed by the participants, which sets the target of disrupting public order through actions aimed against Islamic and other representatives from "the South of the world."

How does it happen that a journalist is invited to a secret meeting to plan terrorist actions? Journalist Berizzi claims he infiltrated the meeting as a member of the Italian hooligan scene. Whatever the truth is, public media attention is useful to the string-pullers, if their aim is to pull off something sensational, and to blame it on Iran, furthering the strategic aims mentioned earlier. In any case, the meeting was confirmed by German intelligence, according to a report in Tageszeitung March 30.

Now, let's look at this from a higher standpoint: Hooligan organizations are controlled by neo-Nazi groupings, which belong to an umbrella organization, the "European National Front," begun in Spain in November 2002, under the joint initiative of the old Franco-era Minister Blas Pinar and Italian neo-fascist leader Roberto Fiore. The formation of the ENF was completed in 2004, and includes, among others: Blas Pinar's Frente Espanol, Fiore's Forza Nuova, the French Renouveau Français, the German NPD, and the Polish Narodowe Odrodzenie Polski (NOP, National Rebirth of Poland).

The control of these organizations over radical hooligan teams is well documented. In the case of Forza Nuova, the fan clubs of both soccer clubs, Roma and Lazio, are organized in a network of radical right-wing groups, controlled by the "Black Thing" (La Cosa Nera), the new neo-fascist cartel formed by Roberto Fiore, Alessandra Mussolini, Adriano Tilgher, and Luca Romagnoli.

As EIR has previously reported, Roberto Fiore is a veteran of the Strategy of Tension, as he was leader of an organization called Terza Posizione, considered to be the political arm of the terrorist NAR (Nuclei Armati Rivoluzionari), responsible for several terrorist acts, including the 1980 Bologna train-station massacre.

Forza Nuova controls the Curva (soccer fan clubs) through a sub-organization called Base Autonoma, whose leaders have made a career in Forza Nuova. The leader of Base Autonoma is Fiore's brother-in-law, Giuliano Castellino. In turn, Base Autonoma moves through soccer-fan organizations, such as Tradizione e Distinzione (Rome) and Banda de Noantri (Lazio). Across such fan groups, an extremely violent wing has emerged, which has targetted especially the police. This wing is backed by a sort of legal support organization led by Prof. Paolo Signorelli, another figure familiar from the years of right-wing terrorism. Signorelli, now in his sixties, was indicted, and then acquitted, for his role as chief ideologue of the terrorist organization Ordine Nuovo.

Using a recent police law, which, in case of soccer riots, expands the in flagrante limit to 36 hours, police arrested the three Curva leaders who forced the interruption of the derby: Stefano Carriero; a neo-fascist member of Tradizione e Distinzione, Stefano Sordini, another neo-fascist leader of the Giovinezza group; and Roberto Morelli, from the AS Roma Ultras.

The next day, the three received a visit from Alessandra Mussolini, the granddaughter of the Duce, who pleaded their "innocence." And as soon as they appeared before the judge, they were freed." (For more information on this topic, see, "The Synarchist Resurgence Behind the Madrid Train Bombing of March 11, 2004," issued by LaRouche in 2004, available from EIR.)

As with the Italian scene, Polish hooligans are dominated by the NOP. And when, in reporting on the Braunau meeting, journalist Berizzi described the Spanish representative a member of the SUR (The Francoist Fans of Real Madrid)”one is reminded that one of the suspected "Islamic terrorists" arrested in the case of the Madrid bombing attacks, Mohammed Bekkali, was a fanatical partisan of the Real Madrid soccer club.

The String-Pullers In the meantime, this author has learned that prosecutors in Rome are conducting an investigation using material published by EIR before and after the Madrid bombing attack, March 11, 2004. It consists of warnings issued in 2003 by Lyndon LaRouche against the possibility of a 9/11-like atrocity, in which one possible source would be "defined by the cover recently assembled under Spain's leading fascist figure, Blas Piñar. Assess the potential for a relevant type of 9/11-like attack on the U.S. which would be traceable to Blas Piñar, as 9/11 was traced to Arabs."

"The most significant aspect," LaRouche continued, "of the new international regroupment under the former Franco official Blas Pinar is that it is muscular, but of an intrinsically mayfly kind of political-operational potential. It is composed, inclusively, and significantly, of small but muscular groups representing a continuation of those which were used as cover for international terrorist operations in 1970s Europe. . . . Muscular mayfly associations of international Synarchist profiles are, by their very existence, among the most likely sources of international terrorist actions; otherwise, they, like mayflies, die soon."

With "Synarchism," LaRouche means a specific historical phenomenon, identifying a nexus of financial and political interests that promoted fascist and Nazi regimes in Europe, including the Franco regime in Spain and the Codreanu government in Romania. Historically, these interests are associated with the Banque Worms in France, and the Lazard financial group. It is possible to draw a line of continuity, from the standpoint of policies and in some cases, of personnel from the 1930s synarchist networks to the present. Today, the Synarchists are represented by people like Dick Cheney and, at a higher level, George Shultz and Felix Rohatyn in the United States.

How do we deal with the terrorist threat? LaRouche asked in the 2003 paper. "Use intelligent political methods; expose the Synarchist International. Let people learn from the 1920-1945 wars in Europe, and Nazi subversion of South and Central America, how President Franklin Roosevelt and his leadership dealt politically with such threats. Expose Synarchism for what it actually is. Strip it of toleration by governments and churches, and send quietly waiting counterintelligence ambushes into position, to catch them if they try to move in relevant directions."

Those guidelines are the more valid today, if we want to stop Cheney's plans for world dictatorship.

Is Another 9/11 in the Works?

10.06.2006 22:06

March 16, 2006

If you were President George W. Bush with all available US troops tied down by the Iraqi resistance, and you were unable to control Iraq or political developments in the country, would you also start a war with Iran?

Yes, you would.

Bush’s determination to spread Middle East conflict by striking at Iran does not make sense.

First of all, Bush lacks the troops to do the job. If the US military cannot successfully occupy Iraq, there is no way that the US can occupy Iran, a country approximately three times the size in area and population.

Second, Iran can respond to a conventional air attack with missiles targeted on American ships and bases, and on oil facilities located throughout the Middle East.

Third, Iran has human assets, including the Shi'ite majority population in Iraq, that it can activate to cause chaos throughout the Middle East.

Fourth, polls of US troops in Iraq indicate that a vast majority do not believe in their mission and wish to be withdrawn. Unlike the yellow ribbon folks at home, the troops are unlikely to be enthusiastic about being trapped in an Iranian quagmire in addition to the Iraqi quagmire.

Fifth, Bush’s polls are down to 34 percent, with a majority of Americans believing that Bush’s invasion of Iraq was a mistake.

If you were being whipped in one fight, would you start a second fight with a bigger and stronger person?

That’s what Bush is doing.

Opinion polls indicate that the Bush regime has succeeded in its plan to make Americans fear Iran as the greatest threat America faces.

The Bush regime has created a major dispute with Iran over that country’s nuclear energy program and then blocked every effort to bring the dispute to a peaceful end.

In order to gain a pretext for attacking Iran, the Bush regime is using bribery and coercion in its effort to have Iran referred to the UN Security Council for sanctions.

In recent statements President Bush and Pentagon chief Donald Rumsfeld blamed Iran for the Iraqi resistance, claiming that the roadside bombs used by the resistance are being supplied by Iran.

It is obvious that Bush intends to attack Iran and that he will use every means to bring war about.

Yet, Bush has no conventional means of waging war with Iran. His bloodthirsty neoconservatives have prepared plans for nuking Iran. However, an unprovoked nuclear attack on Iran would leave the US, already regarded as a pariah nation, totally isolated.

Readers, whose thinking runs ahead of that of most of us, tell me that another 9/11 event will prepare the ground for a nuclear attack on Iran. Some readers say that Bush, or Israel as in Israel’s highly provocative attack on the Jericho jail and kidnapping of prisoners with American complicity, will provoke a second attack on the US. Others say that Bush or the neoconservatives working with some "black ops" group will orchestrate the attack.

One of the more extraordinary suggestions is that a low yield, perhaps tactical, nuclear weapon will be exploded some distance out from a US port. Death and destruction will be minimized, but fear and hysteria will be maximized. Americans will be told that the ship bearing the weapon was discovered and intercepted just in time, thanks to Bush’s illegal spying program, and that Iran is to blame. A more powerful wave of fear and outrage will again bind the American people to Bush, and the US media will not report the rest of the world’s doubts of the explanation.

Reads like a Michael Crichton plot, doesn’t it?

Fantasy? Let’s hope so.

"20,000 British hooligans will arrive in Frankfurt June 10 for the England-Paraguay match, for which only 10,000 have tickets"
Hence the major disorder which occurred then eh?
And all these highly organised fighting squads are being coordinated in Spain was it? Rather than being piss-heads who hate foreigners?
Clearly a man who knows what he's talking about...
Stick to UFOs.
