War IS Terror

07-12-2008 19:42

Were people to understand the true ramifications of war, ramifications that will be highly comprehensible and identifiable to nearly all people- no one rational would ever support it, and governments would be seriously handicapped in their ability to wage it.

Hebron settler riots were out and out pogroms

07-12-2008 00:01

Once again the fascistic settlers went on the rampage after their eviction
from a house that was fraudulently appropriated to house the extremist
terrorist settlers that have taken over in Hebron. The IDF have often stood
by as these settlers have attacked Palestinians and their homes, with Israel
imposing curfews that have turned old Hebron into a ghost town with its once
vibrant market closed down.

Somalia: Another CIA-backed coup blows up

04-12-2008 13:15

The United States has lost the ground war in Somalia, but that doesn't mean its geopolitical objectives have changed one iota. The US intends to stay in the region for years to come and use its naval power to control the critical shipping lanes from the Gulf of Aden. The growing strength of the Somali national resistance is a set-back, but it doesn't change the basic game-plan. The pirates are actually a blessing in disguise. They provide an excuse for the administration to beef up it's military presence and put down roots. Every crisis is an opportunity.

Vigilant Shield 09: A Cover for Illegal Domestic Operations?

03-12-2008 18:55

Launched by President Bush in 2002 in the aftermath of the September 11,
2001 terrorist attacks, NORTHCOM has been mired in controversy since its
creation. Among its more dubious accomplishments were illegal domestic
spying operations in conjunction with the Pentagon's shadowy Counter
Intelligence Field Activity unit (CIFA) that targeted antiwar activists.

Despite CIFA's shut-down and the alleged dismantling of its TALON
database (now incorporated into the FBI's Guardian Threat Tracking
System), SourceWatch revealed that "in accordance with intelligence
oversight requirements, the DoD will maintain a record copy of the collected
data." One can't help but wonder whether that "record copy" of TALON
somehow migrated into a NORTHCOM database.

Mumbai Attacks: The British are behind it

02-12-2008 23:47

False flags events are the only way nowadays to get the masses to accept going to war, to fight the wars our governments and secret services still feel have to be fought and won. At any cost it seems, billions and billions, never mind any economic depression in between.

Yes, we are at war. Yes, the Nuclear Third World War is on our doorstep. Yes, no global financial crisis, no matter how serious it is, will stop that now. It is all being planned and discussed in secret, and moved forward by false flag events to justify it.

The terrorism perpetrated by nation-states is vastly greater in scope and number of casualties than that caused by individuals or groups of individuals even though the corporate media give nearly all the attention and condemnation to terrorism by individuals.
