10-09-2005 01:39

Sioux City, Iowa -- September 4, 2005 -- -- According to leaked documents from an intelligence file obtained through a military source in the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), on or about September 12, 1991 non-performing and unauthorized gold-backed debt instruments were used to purchase ten-year "Brady" bonds. The bonds in turn were illegally employed as collateral to borrow $240 billion--120 in Japanese Yen and 120 in Deutsch Marks--exchanged for U.S. currency under false pretenses; or counterfeit and unlawful conversion of collateral against which an unlimited amount of money could be created in derivatives and debt instruments.

Locals believe New Orleans Levees were Intentionally blown

10-09-2005 01:36

Could the levees in New Orleans have been INTENTIONALLY blown out in order to save sections of the city deemed to be more important? The locals certainly seem to think so, yet, as usual, the mainstream media is barely picking up on this wave of opinion, so it is left to us once again to bring the issue into the open.

So Paris bombs were state terrorism

09-09-2005 17:14

Infiltrate anti-catitalist organisations and turn them into terrorists! The 'Strategy of Tension' appears to have been working.
Blow up innocent people and blame it on the left or 'muslim extremists'. Now they are softening up the public for an all out attack on muslim nations and the Muslim faith - much like the attack on the Jews in the 1930's.
Try googling up 'strategy of tension' and 'Gladio' if you haven't already and you'll see the far right have been using the secrecy of intelligence cover to do this since the 1950's.

Top Politicians, Economists, Leaders State 9/11 Possibly Inside Job

09-09-2005 16:22

The complete inability of the Bush/PNAC Regime to present compelling and independently-verifiable evidence to support their Conspiracy Theory, despite pressure to do so over a four year period, pretty much damns their version of events.

Not to mention what we've all learned about them since 2001.

(USA) What kind of organization does the antiwar movement need?

09-09-2005 16:05

An organization capable of overthrowing the system of imperialist rule cannot be built on a foundation of sand. Only principled, transparent and long-term collaboration between serious activists can:

(1) organize a decisive break from the
confinement of liberal-imperialist politics,
(2) mobilize the masses in their millions and
(3) chart the couse forward to a world without
imperialist war or capitalist exploitation
