24-08-2008 14:00The U.S. intelligence community buckled sooner in 2002 than previously
reported to Bush administration pressure for data justifying an invasion of
Iraq, according to a documents posting on the Web today by National Security
Archive senior fellow John Prados.
The documents suggest that the public relations push for war came before the
intelligence analysis, which then conformed to public positions taken by
Pentagon and White House officials. For example, a July 2002 draft  of
the "White Paper" ultimately issued by the CIA in October 2002  actually
pre-dated the National Intelligence Estimate that the paper purportedly
summarized, but which Congress did not insist on until September 2002.
A similar comparison between a declassified draft  and the final version
 of the British government's "White Paper" on Iraq weapons of mass
destruction adds to evidence that the two nations colluded in the effort to
build public support for the invasion of Iraq. Dr. Prados concludes that the
new evidence tends to support charges raised by former White House press
secretary Scott McClellan and by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence
in its long-delayed June 2008 "Phase II" report on politicization of
23-08-2008 14:01I am beginning to feel like the Government of Canada is
attempting to adopt an ideology as our national identity and I am very
disturbed by that. I feel that some of your policies are beginning to depart
from deeply held traditional Canadian values. And you are transforming the
face of Canada with the mandate of a minority Government. You also have a
majority in the House of Commons who voted, on behalf of Canadians, to
support the request made by American War resisters to remain in Canada.

23-08-2008 12:55From July 21 - 31, Joint Task Force (mostly US, but also UK, France, Brazil and Italy) "Operation Brimstone" large scale war games were conducted off the US East coast in the North Atlantic. Its purpose may have been to prepare for a naval blockade of Iran. From what's known a naval deployment may be planned, and a blockade may ensue. The situation remains tense and worrisome.
United States and Poland to deploy on Polish soil US `interceptor missiles'
is the most dangerous move towards nuclear war the world has seen since the
1962 Cuba Missile crisis.

22-08-2008 17:04After 4 years of developmental setbacks the Raytheon IV guided bomb is now in full production in the UK.
The new weapon is intended to replace the Paveway III guided bomb, the most commonly used munition in the 2003 'shock and awe' bombing of Iraq.
EDO MBM Technology Ltd (now owned by ITT Corp) are UK design and production partners on the new 'smart bomb' with Raytheon, Portsmouth Aviation, and Thales.
Once again EDO MBM is found to be at the heart of UK and joint US/UK military operations in Iraq and Afganistan.

Unfortunately, the Pope and his enormous empire is quite capable of suing the whole world. Through Opus Dei, he already owns most of the Supreme Courts and , in some countries, he even has a Special Place drafted into their Constitution. This was so for the Republic of Ireland and East Timor; and , if you looked closely enough at a couple of dozen other Catholic countries , you would find the same anti-secular bias, even when such countries brag about 'every citizen being equal before the law'. Catholicism makes tin-pot dictatorships out of the most well-meaning countries. One has only to mention Spain, Portugal and Austria to see what they did to these countries in the past, or to Spain, Italy or Germany before , during and after WW11. The personality of the Christian, when you have taken away the Janus-mask of White Pope (who does the PR from the Vatican) and the Black Pope , who does the biz abroad, is one of deception, forgery, incalculable violence and aggression ,not just to women and children in 'State-run Catholic schools', but in the broadest theaters of universal civil and international war.

There is a tacit public acceptance of a diabolical and criminal military agenda, which in a very sense threatens "the community of nations" and life on this planet.
