- In a day or so Condoleezza Rice will yet again appear
at the microphones in the Middle-East spewing new lies upon old promises
while mouthing all the same-old worn-out words that have no meaning to
anyone that's been watching for these last four decades. She will be coming
to talk about her Owner's two-state solution: Here's a recent map: can
you see any possibility for anything like two separate but equal states?
- This open wound in the heart of the Middle East was created
by a combination of deceptions and black-ops intrigues that has over the
decades only continued to deepen. We must close this wound by force if
- Just today we learned what really happened to the money
that the Pentagon lost at the beginning of the Iraq war-it went to Israel!
- "Think of this as part two of Recherche du trillions
perdu, my Online Journal article on Dov Zakheim, former Bush appointee
as Pentagon Comptroller from May 4, 2001 to March 10, 2004. At that time
he was unable to explain the disappearance of $1 trillion dollars. Actually,
nearly three years earlier, Donald Rumsfeld announced on September 10,
2001 that an audit discovered $2.3 trillion was also missing from the Pentagon
books. That story, as I mentioned, was buried under 9-11's rubble. The
two sums disappeared on Zakheim's watch.
- Yet on May 6, 2004, Zakheim took a lucrative position
at Booz Allen Hamilton, one of the most prestigious strategy consulting
firms in the world. One of its clients then was Blessed Relief, a charity
said to be a front for Osama bin Laden. Booz, Allen & Hamilton then
also worked closely with DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects
Agency, which is the research arm of the Department of Defense. So the
dark card was shifted to another part of the deck.
- Judicial Inc's bio of Dov (linked below) tells us Zakheim
was/is a dual Israeli/American citizen and an ordained rabbi and had been
tracking the halls of US government for 25 years, casting defense policy
and influence on Presidents Reagan, Clinton, Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. He is,
as I described him earlier, the bionic Zionist. In fact, Judicial Inc points
out that most of Israel's armaments were gotten thanks to him. Squads of
US F-16 and F-15 were classified military surplus and sold to Israel at
a fraction of their value."(1)
- And if that's not enough to make your blood boil, add
the three trillion more that the war will directly cost the US taxpayers,
for our part in the fighting and the dying that will last until the last
US casualty dies.
- Six trillion dollars, and tell me again-how many Israeli's
have died in that war! The US taxpayers have armed Israel to the teeth,
and we have not demanded anything in return. We should leave Iraq immediately
and replace every one of ours with IDF forces so that they can begin to
fight their own actual wars: instead of just bombing and strafing the civilians
inside Palestine and elsewhere. If Israel were actually threatened by armed
and angry enemies that can fight back, she might not be so cavalier about
killing so very many Palestinians as she has been since 1946. (2)
- A great many people have been sucked in to believing
Israel's one- sided explanations for their current position, in their continuing
genocide against the Palestinians. However there's a new book coming out
about something that happened in 1953: Something that cast a huge amount
of light on our own position in Iran at that time, and as it turns out,
in the entire Middle-East, right up until today.
- STEPHEN KINZER" from his book: "All the Shah's
Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror:" was Bruce
Laingen, who had been the chief American diplomat in Iran and was the most
prominent figure among the hostages that were held there for 444 days.
And I knew that Laingen had become an advocate of reconciliation with Iran,
which I consider quite remarkable, considering the ordeal that he suffered.
- He told me an amazing story. He said, "I had been
sitting in my solitary cell as a hostage for about a year, when one day
the cell door opens, and there is standing one of the hostage takers, one
of my jailers. And all of my rage and my fury built up over one year sitting
in that cell just burst out, and I started screaming at him, and I was
telling him, 'You have no right to do this! This is cruel, this is inhumane!
These people have done nothing! This is a violation of every law of god
and man! You cannot take innocent people hostage!'" He said, "I
went on like this for several minutes. When I was finally out of breath,
the hostage taker paused for a moment, and then he leaned into my cell
and said, in very good English, 'You have no right to complain, because
you took our whole country hostage in 1953.'"
- The interview continues:
- "Just very briefly, so we placed the Shah back on
his peacock throne. The Shah ruled with increasing repression for twenty-five
years. His repression set off the explosion of the late 1970s, what we
call the Islamic Revolution. That revolution brought to power a clique
of fanatically anti-American mullahs. That revolution also inspired radicals
in other countries, like next-door Afghanistan, where the Taliban came
to power and gave shelter to al-Qaeda with results we all know. That instability
in Iran that followed that revolution also led Iran's great enemy next
door, Saddam Hussein, to invade Iran. That not only set off an eight-year
war between Iran and Iraq, but it also brought the United States into its
death embrace with Saddam. We were the military allies of Saddam during
the Iran-Iraq War, and we were supplying Saddam with military intelligence,
with Bell helicopters that he used to spray gas on Iranian positions. President
Reagan sent a special envoy twice to Baghdad to negotiate with Saddam and
ask him how we could help him. And, of course, that envoy was Donald Rumsfeld.
So that instability set off by that revolution also led the United States
into the spiral in Iraq that brought us to the point where we are now.
- That revolution in Iran also spooked the Soviets. They
were terrified that there would be copycat fundamentalist revolutions all
along their southern flank. And to prevent that, they invaded Afghanistan.
That brought the United States into its position in Afghanistan, where
we brought Osama bin Laden there, we trained all these tens of thousands
of jihadis in how to kill infidels, which they later became the Taliban.
We later became the infidels they wanted to kill. So why is this all so
important for today?
- AMY GOODMAN: And, in fact, it affected the Carter-Reagan
elections, brought Reagan to power.
- STEPHEN KINZER: Oh, and it devastated the presidency
of Jimmy Carter forever, absolutely.
- AMY GOODMAN: Which had enormous effect then on Latin
America, when you look at Reagan's role in Latin America in the '80s.
- STEPHEN KINZER: You can-they call it in the CIA "walking
back the cat." You can walk back the cat endlessly on this one. And
the reason the story is so relevant is that it tells us the main thing
you need to know in assessing the current idea of an attack on Iran, which
is the worst consequences are ones you can't even imagine. . ." (3)
- For years I've been screaming about the lack of consequences
for our actions everywhere in the world. It appears that I was very, very
wrong on this one: because there have been consequences everywhere, hiding
in plain sight! Which is all the more reason that Americans must demand
that our Owners reign in the madness that we have unleashed, through Israel
onto what's left of Palestine?
- Look at that map above one more time and ask yourself
what happened to all that land that Israel, as the occupying force, was
supposed to be protecting for the Palestinians, its rightful owners! It
is not what aggressor nations say that matters but rather what they do!
And between the USA and Israel we have been the aggressors now for 52 years:
THAT'S LONG ENOUGH, we need to CHANGE that situation so that everything
else can return to the normal levels of political corruption that all of
us take for granted!
