- The Unknown
- As we know,
- There are known knowns.
- There are things we know we know.
- We also know
- There are known unknowns.
- That is to say
- We know there are some things
- We do not know.
- But there are also unknown unknowns,
- The ones we don't know
- We don't know.
- -- Department of Defense news briefing,
- The Poetry of D.H. Rumsfeld may not rival that of D.H.
Lawrence, but it certainly surpasses the occult skills of Aleister Crowley.
What is known about Rumsfeld is not good. But what is projected by Rumsfeld
is perceived as reassuring with a pinch of solace. The vision of a preempted
strike does not make a ëDonald of Arabia', nor would that other Lawrence
indulge with comfort the DHR legacy. The <http://quicksitebuilder.cnet.com/sartrejp/VIEW/id30.html>Full
Spectrum Dominance course of Rumsfeld conceals the purpose for - FSD -
superiority over the entire range of battlefield threats. The aim entails
more than an impersonal target. It marks a departure from all conventional
defensive strategy. Even the MAD era would consider such a policy as dangerous.
- Advanced technical sophistication in killing has always
been the ultimate growth industry. No, it's not this enhanced destructive
efficiency that makes this man hazardous. It's his ability to cloak the
motives and goals for the supremacy of the exquisite empire. Wearing a
burka is not necessary to conquer the sands of oil. Only the selling of
a benevolent liberator is needed to win the peace. How well is this message
trading in the world of international opinion?
- Back at home Rummy hits a grand slam. The master linguist
of newspeak does not have to speak in foreign tongues. His role is to shape
the propaganda for domestic consumption. Remember this one? U.S. Defense
Rumsfeld denied the United States plans a long-term military presence in
- "I have never, that I can recall, heard the subject
of a permanent base in Iraq, discussed in any meeting," said Rumsfeld,
denying a New York Times report that ó and here's where it gets
rich ó didn't say the United States is necessarily planning permanent
bases in Iraq.
- "The likelihood of it seems to me to be so low that
it does not surprise me that it's never been discussed in my presence,"
Rumsfeld said. "To my knowledge.''
- Wow, there is a man who can out spin Clinton counsel
Bernie Nusbaum on the benign suicide of Vince Foster. Technically RumDumb
is right, no need for permanent bases when you have an annexed colony!
Why worry about semantics when the logic of occupation is going so well
. . .
- The spoils are secure as the body bags mount. Just part
of the costs of doing business. A little collateral damage mixed with the
magic of a skilled slight of hand and you get all the oil that blood can
steal. As time passes and ëAmerican Alzheimer' infliction spreads,
no one will care or hold the top defense talking head accountable.
- Another blast from the past that we must not forget:
Rumsfeld, you shook Saddam's hand in 1983, as an official representative
of the United States of America, which at that time hated Iran so much
that it was willing to work with thugs like Hussein, and to supply them
with every form of weaponry imaginable. You knew he was using poison gas,
and you said not one word against it. You knew he was obtaining biological
agents; you encouraged it. Now you're point-man in parroting Bush's litany
of half-truths and outright lies about why we "must" invade Iraq.î
- Guess would be Donny ìSeinfeld'sî comic
relief is not funny enough to entertain the official rationale of that
imminent threat, from that ësoup Nazi' towel head, of using weapons
of mass destruction. Hell, I'm still waiting to find out where they are!
Boy Rummy sure can fool all the dummies. Defense of the realm now is defined
by the likes of the usual suspects from the <http://www.washingtoninstitute.org/>Washington
Institute. It's not hard to figure out who's payroll they take their shekels
from or who benefits from their manipulation of U.S. policy.
- None of this should be fresh news. However, you might
have missed the resurrection of an updated version of the <http://www.agrnews.org/issues/199/commentary.html>Operation
Northwoods - the plan that America's top military brass presented to President
John Kennedy in 1963, calling for a phony terrorist campaign ó complete
with bombings, hijackings, plane crashes, and dead Americans -- to provide
ìjustificationî for an invasion of Cuba, the mafia/corporate
fiefdom that had recently been lost to Castro.
- ìAccording to a classified document prepared for
Rumsfeld by his Defense Science Board, the new organization ó the
Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group (<http://www.ratical.org/ratville/CAH/P2OG.html>P2OG)
ó will carry out secret missions designed to ìstimulate reactionsî
among terrorist groups, provoking them into committing violent acts which
would then expose them to ìcounterattackî by US forces. (SA,
the SS, the KGB, the IRA, the UDF, ETA, Hamas, Shining Path and countless
other upholders of Bushian morality, decency and freedom).î
- Rumsfeld is a sorcerer with the style of a soothsayer.
He emulates the ethereal translucence or aura-glow of Aleister Crowley,
while operating by the imperative - <http://www.dracoart.net/crowley/crowley.html>Do
what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. His verse foretells the death
of society as the Neo Poet for Neo Cons. This truth is one of those known
knowns, one of those things we know we know.
