"Liberated Iraq" Is The Most Absurd Of All The War Excuses

Freedom under occupation makes Saddam Hussein look like Nelson Mandela in comparison

Paul Joseph Watson/Prison | October 13 2006

A new study published by The Lancet estimates that 655,000 Iraqis, the vast majority of them innocent civilians, have been killed as a result of the bombing and occupation of Iraq. Was this a human price worth paying for the supposed liberation of an oppressed people? How does freedom in Iraq under Bush's mandate compare with Saddam Hussein's regime?

"We've always said it could be days, weeks, or months and we don't know. And I don't think you need a timetable. What you really need to know is it's going to end and it's going to end with the Iraqi people liberated."
Donald Rumsfeld, March 30, 2003.

"Thanks to the United States, there are now 15 million Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq liberated by your courageous leadership and decision to liberate us, Mr. President."
President Talabani of Iraq, September 13, 2005.

"Iraq is free, and today we are joined by representatives of a liberated country."
George W. Bush, Sept. 23, 2003.

"Just in this administration, we've liberated 50 million people from the Taliban in Afghanistan and from Saddam Hussein in Iraq -- two terribly oppressive regimes that slaughtered hundreds of thousands of their own people."
Dick Cheney, May 31, 2005.

The claim that Iraq is now liberated and that its people have suffered for the glorious opportunity of seeing democracy and freedom flourish throughout their country is the last thread the Neo-Cons are hanging onto as claims of weapons of mass destruction and Al-Qaeda ties evaporated long ago. Yet to claim Iraq is liberated is the most absurd of any of the justifications for going to war or "staying the course."

Here's a rundown of the gracious liberties the Iraqi people have been afforded.


- Iraqis are routinely arrested and taken to Abu Ghraib style detention facilities for the crime of "showing dislike" to their occupiers. In one case this involved an individual holding up a protest placard. In another incident, an Iraqi had his mouth taped over and was arrested for "making anti-coalition statements." In some cases, protesters are simply gunned down and killed. The media are banned from reporting on protests. Not even Palestinians are subject to this kind of treatment.

- In legalese resurrected verbatim from Saddam Hussein’s penal code, the Iraqi government has criminalized criticism and even ridicule of the government or any of its officials. Ridiculing is defined as exposing corruption or questioning the actions of government officials. Iraq's new government considers itself to be so democratic that dissent is unnecessary - so they've outlawed it!


- Iraqis are kidnapped and thrown in some of the same dungeons used by Saddam Hussein for the crime of not showing their papers at checkpoints. Those who cite the threat of car bombs as the necessity which mandates this should recall the incident where British SAS personnel were caught dressed up as Arabs with fake wigs and garb attacking a police station.

- Iraqi's homes are routinely raided and all military age men arrested.


- Immediately after the invasion and occupation, all Iraqis were ordered to turn in their guns or face arrest. Iraqis enjoyed universal arms ownership under Saddam Hussein.


- Petty thieves who steal such things as firewood have their vehicles crushed by U.S. Abrams tanks as punishment.

- The UN's chief anti-torture expert recently said that cases of torture in Iraq outstripped those under Saddam Hussein and that the situation was "out of control." The outgoing UN human rights chief Dr. John Pace dropped a bombshell when he told an obscure Maltese newspaper that as many as a thousand detainees a month are being tortured to death in Iraq.

- Iraqis are subject to "collective punishment" - an staple fascist model - whereby U.S. forces kill ten men from one village in response to a single U.S. army casualty.

- Multiple videos have surfaced which show U.S. military personnel driving down Iraqi highways and randomly assassinating drivers on a whim and then laughing and high-fiving. Other videos show U.S. forces zealously finishing off wounded Iraqis with glee, declaring the carnage "awesome" and anticipating the next kill. Another video shows troops bemoaning the fact that they are not able to shoot children who throw rocks.


- Arab television networks and newspapers that do not obediently tow the line of the occupation are raided and shut down and editors are sometimes gunned down on the street. The U.S. military plants propaganda in newspapers as a matter of course.

- A pre-war policy outlined the intention of the U.S. military to target for assassination any independent reporter who was not embedded within U.S. ranks. SInce that order more journalists have been killed in Iraq than the entirety of the Vietnam war - the latest being British ITV reporter Terry Lloyd, who was shot in the head by U.S. troops. Mazen Dana, the Award winning Reuters camera man, was shot dead after uncovering evidence of U.S. mass graves.

- "Dozens of Iraqi journalists have been kidnapped by criminal gangs or detained by the American military, on suspicion that they are helping Sunni insurgents or Shiite militias. One, Bilal Hussein, who photographed insurgents in Anbar Province for The Associated Press, has been in American custody without charges since April," reported the New York Times.


- Local elections and in provincial cities and towns across Iraq were cancelled in favor of U.S. "hand-picked mayors and administrators," that were formerly part of Saddam Hussein's Baath Party.


- Iraqis are subject to snap announcements of curfews and ordered to remain in their homes.

Iraq is nothing more than an elected dictatorship.

Sounds like another country a bit closer to home.

Nexus Points Emerge For Potential Summer Attack

All indications suggest uncomfortable season of fear ahead

Paul Joseph Watson/Prison | June 6 2006

Numerous nexus points have emerged that suggest major western governments are preparing for a summer terror attack that will come close to but not match 9/11 in scale and will provide the justification needed for an air strike on Iran before the midterm elections in early November.

While there is a danger of becoming the boy who cried wolf, disturbing trends over the last couple of months do strongly indicate that the twist in the tale, which is always to be expected in an election year, will be a staged attack on a major developed city or the soccer World Cup. Here are the red flags.

- An increase in taped messages from supposed Al-Qaeda figures Osama bin Laden and Musab Al-Zarqawi.

- Terror arrests in England and Canada that seem to have little purpose other than making a future attack seem inevitable in the minds of the public.

- A report in the Washington Post detailing how 4,000 federal government officials will enter shadow government bunkers on June 19th for a continuity of government drill in anticipation of a major terrorist attack. Every major terrorist attack is preceded by or runs parallel to a government drill in order to provide governments with plausible deniability if they get caught facilitating the attack.

- Martial law evacuation exercises being conducted in Washington DC under the cover of manufactured crises.

- A nationwide FEMA program teaching Pastors and other neighborhood volunteers to inculcate the inevitability of martial law in America to their communities and urging them not to resist when it happens, a procedure set to be completed at the end of August.

- A report from CBS News quoting anonymous US government officials who say that they would be surprised if an attack didn't happen before the end of the year, albeit on a smaller scale than 9/11.

- Sagging presidential approval numbers that have dipped into the twenties for the first time.

- A GOP memo that touts a devastating attack by terrorists on US soil as a way of keeping the Republican party from losing control of Congress in the 2006 midterm elections and restoring Bush's image as a war leader.

- The need for a pretext to launch an air strike on Iran's alleged nuclear processing facilities, an eventuality scheduled for later this month or in July, according to former CIA analyst Ray McGovern.

- Israel's fundamentalist insistence that such an attack be launched as soon as possible.

- A pretext that could be created by means of a false flag attack on the World Cup in Germany, blamed on Hizbullah and by proxy Iran. Israel have sent out veiled threats that this could happen and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's decision to travel to Germany if his country reaches the second round of the tournament is more likely to be based around his desire to offset the potential attack than his love of soccer.

Any future terror attack does not even have to lead back to Iran in order to rally enough support to attack an innocent country as we saw with Iraq. About half of Americans see the world as divided between good guys and bad guys. There really is no need for the shadow government to become more sophisticated in their methods but this might prove their downfall at a later date.

When considered in a nexus, these indications all unfortunately illustrate a desperate drive towards preparing western populations for another attack this summer.

Bushite Neo-Cons Responsible For May Day Immigration Protests

Bushite Neo-Cons Responsible For May Day Immigration Protests
Today's scenes do not herald 'new civil rights movement,' only invading army of foreigners

Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones/Prison | May 1 2006

Today's massive immigration protests which are being afforded lavish and complimentary media attention were orchestrated by the Neo-Cons and the Bush administration and represent a fifth columnist movement openly intent on destroying America as we know it.

The agenda is multi-faceted and includes protecting government drug-running operations, balkanizing the US and lowering the standard of living, and inciting race riots that lead to the justification of martial law and internment procedures being implemented.

As we reported last month, in late December 2005, Mexican President Vicente Fox hired a lobbying firm to sweeten political sentiment in the US towards Mexicans and the immigration issue. The same PR expert and GOP political consultant helped George W. Bush defeat Ann Richards for the governorship of Texas in 1994 and worked on both Bush's presidential campaigns.

Rob Allyn of Rob Allyn & Co. secretly engineered Fox's 2000 presidential victory and is closely tied with George W. Bush.

There can be no doubt that a foreign government is working in tandem with the government of the United States and a powerful, politically-connected public relations firm to manufacture consent and to hold back a growing grassroots movement to defend America's sovereignty.

The LA Times reported that Vicente Fox hired Allyn & Co. when the rumblings of immigration reform began to be heard in Congress. The firm was hired to create a mechanism to sway public opinion in favor of Mexico and Mexican immigrants into the U.S. at the same moment public concern over border security was beginning to reach a fever pitch. The timing is impeccable.

The legislation that Fox found so "shameful" is the very same that is being protested so vehemently by hundreds of thousands around the country. The mainstream media's massive protest coverage kept coming back to a few central themes: the protesters are against "criminalizing" the illegal crossing of U.S. borders and they are seeking a blanket amnesty for undocumented immigrants currently residing in the country. Fox turned to Allyn & Co. to push this very agenda.

An LA Times report on last December's announcement quotes Allyn (pictured) on his tactics on behalf of Fox,

''Our focus is on public opinion, which influences policy outcomes in Congress,'' said Allyn, 46, who grew up in Huntington Beach, Calif., and moved to Texas when he was in high school. "There is a huge misperception among the U.S. public about Mexico.''

Allyn set up a phony human rights front group called Democracy Watch, supposedly to "monitor" elections in Mexico. The group solicited donations and used the money to illegally sway the Mexican election in favor of Vicente Fox.

The scenes you will witness on the streets of America over the next few days do not illustrate a 'new civil rights movement' but an invading army of militant foreigners bankrolled and supported by predominantly white rich Neo-Cons and Neo-Libs who are using the different Mexican race groups as a vice to crush the sleeping American middle class.

The real agenda embraced by the ringleaders of the protests are still being whitewashed and covered up by the mainstream media.

The demonstrations are part of an orchestrated advance on the part of a race hate movement that seeks to enact a brutal program of ethnic cleansing that will wipe uncooperative whites and blacks from the south and western states off the map, as detailed in our previous article.

The Atzlan movement openly states its goal is to create a separatist state that encompasses the entire southern and western states. Their version of Hitler's Mein Kampf is the Plan of San Diego, which outlines the plan to ethnically cleanse the entire region of whites and blacks by mass genocide. Mecha's own slogan reads, "For the race everything. For those outside the race, nothing."

The catalyst for the agenda to intern millions of Americans deemed subversive in a time of manufactured chaos could be race riots kick-started by radicalized Mexican Klan groups and their establishment controllers.

During our reporting on the immigration protests that are a front for the violent separatist Atzlan movement, watching Spanish TV news stations we were able to ascertain that the marches were not wholly an organic response to the introduction of the immigration bill but were being artificially promoted and organized by the Spanish-language media.

The very next day the Associated Press reported that, "Many of the 500,000 people who crammed downtown Los Angeles on Saturday to protest legislation that would make criminals out of illegal immigrants learned where, when and even how to demonstrate from the Spanish-language media.

"For English-speaking America, the mass protests in Los Angeles and other U.S. cities over the past few days have been surprising for their size and seeming spontaneity."

"But they were organized, promoted or publicized for weeks by Spanish-language radio hosts and TV anchors as a demonstration of Hispanic pride and power."

Last week Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff dismissed concerns over repeated incursions onto US soil by the Mexican military and drug runners, calling claims of a border war "scare tactics."

Over the past few years there have been hundreds of incidents of rocket attacks, drive by shootings, murders of sheriffs and police chiefs and abductions of US citizens. If Al-Qaeda was engaging in this kind of behavior it would be all over the front pages without recourse.

Sheriff Rick Flores, whose jurisdiction includes vast swathes of the southern border, told the London Telegraph last week, "Yeah, it's a war."

"These people are sophisticated and they are organised. They wear body armour and helmets, just like our soldiers in Iraq. They have no respect for life and are not afraid of law enforcement on this side."

The National Executive Director of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps Al Garza calls the southern border a "warzone" and says that areas of south Texas and Arizona are more dangerous per capita than Israel's West Bank.

"We are virtually at war, we should in fact deploy our military to the borders. You do that and you will seize all these criminals and all these drug cartels that do what they want to do," Garza told The Alex Jones Show.

Mexican drug commando organization los Zetas (pictured) has been carrying out kidnappings of American citizens and politically motivated assassinations which have stretched from the border town of Nuevo Laredo through to Dallas, Houston and San Antonio all the way to Nashville, Tenn., and Atlanta, Ga.

Why would the US government make it easier for drug smuggling death squads to enter the country? Because the US government controls los Zetas and uses it as the front group for their narco-empire.

Retired DEA Agent Celerino "Cele" Castillo III served for 12 years in the Drug Enforcement Administration where he built cases against organized drug rings in Manhattan, raided jungle cocaine labs in the amazon, conducted aerial eradication operations in Guatemala, and assembled and trained anti-narcotics units in several countries.

Castillo affirms the truth is that they are still working for the US government in protecting drug routes to keep the wheels of Wall Street oiled. Castillo has gone on the record to state that the commandos are working directly for the US government drug cartel in carrying out hits on rival drug smugglers who aren't paying their cut.

This is why President Bush attacked the Minutemen as "vigilantes" and the Border Patrol in Arizona were ordered to stand down and not arrest people illegally crossing the border, in order to make the Minutemen look bad and ineffective.

The World is Uniting Against the Bush Imperium

Paul Craig Roberts | April 26 2006

Is the United States a superpower? I think not. Consider these facts:

The financial position of the US has declined dramatically. The US is heavily indebted, both government and consumers. The US trade deficit both in absolute size and as a percentage of GDP is unprecedented, reaching more than $800 billion in 2005 and accumulating to $4.5 trillion since 1990. With US job growth falling behind population growth and with no growth in consumer real incomes, the US economy is driven by expanding consumer debt. Saving rates are low or negative.

The federal budget is deep in the red, adding to America's dependency on debt. The US cannot even go to war unless foreigners are willing to finance it.

Our biggest bankers are China and Japan, both of whom could cause the US serious financial problems if they wished. A country whose financial affairs are in the hands of foreigners is not a superpower.

The US is heavily dependent on imports for manufactured goods, including advanced technology products. In 2005 US dependency (in dollar amounts) on imported manufactured goods was twice as large as US dependency on imported oil. In the 21st century the US has experienced a rapid increase in dependency on imports of advanced technology products. A country dependent on foreigners for manufactures and advanced technology products is not a superpower.

Because of jobs offshoring and illegal immigration, US consumers create jobs for foreigners, not for Americans. Bureau of Labor Statistics jobs reports document the loss of manufacturing jobs and the inability of the US economy to create jobs in categories other than domestic "hands on" services. According to a March 2006 report from the Center for Immigration Studies, most of these jobs are going to immigrants: "Between March 2000 and March 2005 only 9 percent of the net increase in jobs for adults (18 to 64) went to natives. This is striking because natives accounted for 61 percent of the net increase in the overall size of the 18 to 64 year old population."

A country that cannot create jobs for its native born population is not a superpower.

In an interview in the April 17 Manufacturing & Technology News, former TCI and Global Crossing CEO Leo Hindery said that the incentives of globalization have disconnected US corporations from US interests. "No economy," Hindery said, "can survive the offshoring of both manufacturing and services concurrently. In fact, no society can even take excessive offshoring of manufacturing alone." According to Hindery, offshoring serves the short-term interests of shareholders and executive pay at the long-term expense of US economic strength.

Hindery notes that in 1981 the Business Roundtable defined its constituency as employees, shareholders, community, customers, and the nation." Today the constituency is quarterly earnings. A country whose business class has no sense of the nation is not a superpower.

By launching a war of aggression on the basis of lies and fabricated "intelligence," the Bush regime violated the Nuremberg standard established by the US and international law. Extensive civilian casualties and infrastructure destruction in Iraq, along with the torture of detainees in concentration camps and an ever-changing excuse for the war have destroyed the soft power and moral leadership that provided the diplomatic foundation for America's superpower status. A country that is no longer respected or trusted and which promises yet more war isolates itself from cooperation from the rest of the world. An isolated country is not a superpower.

A country that fears small, distant countries to such an extent that it utilizes military in place of diplomatic means is not a superpower. The entire world knows that the US is not a superpower when its entire available military force is tied down by a small lightly armed insurgency drawn from a Sunni population of a mere 5 million people.

Neoconservatives think the US is a superpower because of its military weapons and nuclear missiles. However, as the Iraqi resistance has demonstrated, America's superior military firepower is not enough to prevail in fourth generation warfare. The Bush regime has reached this conclusion itself, which is why it increasing speaks of attacking Iran with nuclear weapons.

The US is the only country to have used nuclear weapons against an opponent. If six decades after nuking Japan the US again resorts to the use of nuclear weapons, it will establish itself as a pariah, war criminal state under the control of insane people. Any sympathy that might still exist for the US would immediately disappear, and the world would unite against America.

A country against which the world is united is not a superpower.

NASA building an anti-matter spaceship for Mars mission

Raw Story | April 17 2006

NASA researchers are working on a design for a new spaceship for the Mars mission which will be powered by anti-matter, RAW STORY has found.

If successful, "perhaps the first humans to reach Mars will arrive in spaceships powered by the same source that fired starships across the universes of our science fiction dreams," writes Bill Steigerwald of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.

Excerpts from an article at the NASA website:

Most self-respecting starships in science fiction stories use antimatter as fuel for a good reason – it’s the most potent fuel known. While tons of chemical fuel are needed to propel a human mission to Mars, just tens of milligrams of antimatter will do (a milligram is about one-thousandth the weight of a piece of the original M&M candy).

However, in reality this power comes with a price. Some antimatter reactions produce blasts of high energy gamma rays. Gamma rays are like X-rays on steroids. They penetrate matter and break apart molecules in cells, so they are not healthy to be around. High-energy gamma rays can also make the engines radioactive by fragmenting atoms of the engine material.

The NASA Institute for Advanced Concepts (NIAC) is funding a team of researchers working on a new design for an antimatter-powered spaceship that avoids this nasty side effect by producing gamma rays with much lower energy.

Antimatter is sometimes called the mirror image of normal matter because while it looks just like ordinary matter, some properties are reversed. For example, normal electrons, the familiar particles that carry electric current in everything from cell phones to plasma TVs, have a negative electric charge. Anti-electrons have a positive charge, so scientists dubbed them "positrons".

When antimatter meets matter, both annihilate in a flash of energy. This complete conversion to energy is what makes antimatter so powerful. Even the nuclear reactions that power atomic bombs come in a distant second, with only about three percent of their mass converted to energy.

Previous antimatter-powered spaceship designs employed antiprotons, which produce high-energy gamma rays when they annihilate. The new design will use positrons, which make gamma rays with about 400 times less energy.

The NIAC research is a preliminary study to see if the idea is feasible. If it looks promising, and funds are available to successfully develop the technology, a positron-powered spaceship would have a couple advantages over the existing plans for a human mission to Mars, called the Mars Reference Mission.

How Immigration Is Being Used To Destroy The US By The Elite.

Illegal immigration has been the hot topic on the news this past week. Everyone has been talking about the 500,000 people that gathered in Los Angeles to protest the immigration law which has been proposed by Congress. In this article I want to explain why immigration is being used as a tool to divide and conquer the United States.

Throughout history, divide and conquer is a technique which has been used to destroy many tribes. Groups of people who were traditionally hostile to each other were put in the same place, and this caused them to slaughter and kill each other. This trick was done very successfully by European nations in Africa, and the effects of it can still be seen today. The same thing is occuring in the US. People who are not American citizens want to live and work here. Many of them don't pay taxes because they don't have a social security number, and leave the tax burden on American citizens.

Now, while illegal immigration can refer to anyone who comes into the US illegal, the bulk of this issue has been directed at hispanic people. Many people tell me that they should be able to work in the US and make better lives for them and their families. My response to that is why can't the governments of Central America stop enslaving their people and create a democratic society, so they won't be tempted to flee here?

Some people may read this and think I'm a racist. That isn't true, although that is what the corporate controlled media would like you to believe. Racism has nothing to do with this issue, and I hate when people bring it up. The issue is corrupt governments and corporations. They are the real enemy, not the illegals. When companies hire illegals to do work for $3 an hour, though that may be a lot of money compared to where they came from, by US standards that is poverty.

This illegals are slaves. Many of them try to live the American dream by going out and leasing cars, houses, and other items. Many of them get in debt with credit cards and other loans. Because of their low wages and lack of education, they are put in a situation where they cannot get out. They might as well have chains around their arms.

Many middle class Americans believe that George W. Bush cares about illegal immigration. Many think that he wants to stop it. Many of these same Americans hate hispanic people and use race as an issue to get them to leave. In reality, Bush needs illegals to come to the US. More have come here since he became president in 2000. Illegal immigrants help drive down the wages and push the US towards a third world country.

With jobs going to India and China, and illegals entering the country in record numbers, the middle class will be destroyed in about 10 to 20 years, if not sooner. America will become like China, Mexico, or Russia. Either you're rich, or you're poor. This is how it has been in most civilizations for thousands of years. America was different, now it is going back to the old system of doing things.

All you Americans reading this who want fight illegals or kill them, read this carefully. You are doing what the government wants you to do. When the illegals start rioting, and fights break out, this gives the military industrial complex the only excuse it needs to declare martial law and bring in a police state. Bush and his cronies hope an all out civil war breaks out. With an estimated 12 million illegals or more, it is very likely.

Don't think for a second that certain elements of the US government didn't know illegal immigration would become a problem. They knew it would be a problem, and that is why they allowed it to reach the level it has reached now. The need the US to crash and burn, so that "they" can bring in a New World Order. Hispanic hate groups like La Mecha and La Raza who advocate killing whites and blacks are funded by old rich men in New York.

The stage is being set for the US to fall. You have to understand that illegals ARE NOT the problem. It is our corrupt government who allows them to come here in the first place, driving down the wages and pushing the country into a slave society.

The Stench of AT&T and Other Multinational Corporations.

When I checked my phone/internet bill this month from AT&T, I was so angry that my chest started to tighten, and my veins started to swell up. My bill is normally $57, but for some reason the company decided to raise it to $90 this month. This really makes me angry. I get really sick and tired of these corporations and their stupid trash.

They think just because they have billions of dollars they can do whatever they want. They think we "must" have their services, and can't live without it. Why my bill is so high I don't known as of this writing. The billion department is closed until later on today. What I do know is that corporations like AT&T and Microsoft are nothing but pieces of trash. They conspire against their customers, and charge them outrageous fees.

Even worse, these corporations want to have absolute control over the internet. AT&T CEO Edward Whitacre said last year at an expo that the internet should "only be for the rich." Bill Gates has stated that people need to be charged money to send out emails. If this makes you angry, it should. It should make you angry because rich old men who have more money than they will ever need are trying to control everyone below them.

It is not enough that these people have billions of dollars. They want absolute control over my life and yours. The internet is the greatest threat to their power. Ideas and information move at the speed of light, and they can't stand it. I've made up my mind that in May I will cancel this service and swtich to a smaller company which is not a monopoly. One that doesn't suddenly increase your bill for no reason.

I have boycotted many large companies, and Walmart is included on this list. I suggest you do the same. None of these companies have your best interests in mind. You are a number to them, as slave. They are vampires, and will suck the financial life blood from your veins. Once they are done they will leave you destitute and poor, a slave to debt. The outsource jobs to third world countries, and enslave the people who live there. They then turn around and take away the jobs of you and I and sell us their goods for outrageous prices.

Even worse, they lobby our government officials to pass laws which are favorable to them. This is a classic example of fascism. We need to fight back. You can start by boycotting large companies and supporting small businesses by shopping at their stores. You can fight by canceling your bills, and switching to a cheaper service. Don't let corporations suck you dry.

AT&T has won the battle, but they will not win the war. I titled this blog entry "the stench of AT&T and other Multinational Corporations" because that all have a stench which is very difficult to bear.
