America is frightening the world. The vaunted beacon of freedom has turned
into a Ku Klux Klan bonfire. Maybe some sadists think that's a good idea,
but the genuinely decent people of this planet surely don't. Incited by an
endless barrage of dubious bluster about the sudden need for all-out war
against a bomb-ravaged Third World nation, people in 38 different countries
came out by the hundreds of thousands last weekend to sound the alarm about
this spreading American madness.
And we all know the reason why.
The man who claims to lead the fight against terror is terrorizing the entire
He terrrorizes little old American ladies by making them strip naked at airports
and having their private parts probed by minimum-wage security Nazis searching
for weapons of mass destruction. He terrorizes allies around the world with
bribes and threats into saying exactly what he says regardless of what they
actually think. He terrorizes opposition party politicians into nervous silence
when planes fall out of the sky with no explanation.
The belligerent little twit from Texas has singlehandedly has turned the
world's greatest democracy into a paranoid police state. He recently killed
5,000 people in Afghanistan without a shred of verifiable evidence, and now
is threatening to do it again ... and again and again and again.
No single person in recent history has motivated so many people in so many
places to interrupt their daily lives and stand out on some strange street
in order to try to save the lives of innocent people they've never met.
Colossal demonstrations took place last weekend in cities all over the United
States, from Portland to Tampa to Montpelier. Washington drew 500,000 (in
20F degree weather, no less) and San Francisco saw 200,000 (although the
pro-war, corporate shill TV networks cynically refuse to confirm those totals).
Concerned people protested all over Europe as well, from London to Istanbul,
and in Brazil, Japan and New Zealand. There was even a peace demonstration
Yet the plans for another United States war against its former ally Iraq
continue at a frenzied pace, with rumors circulating across the Internet
this weekend that America will begin dropping bombs on the Iraqi people at
the exact moment George W. Bush delivers his State of the Union event this
coming Tuesday night.
How cynically telegenic! Death from the sky as a hot new TV show.
Despite all the hysterical mumbo jumbo about unending terror alerts that
never seem to materialize and draconian new laws that have gutted America's
fabled Bill of Rights, people of the world with the intelligence to analyze
events without the aid of cutesy but ignorant commentators on the Fascist
News Network (a.k.a. Fox) know that all the pro-war propaganda is just a
screen of strident lies.
People know America wants to steal Iraq's oil, and if the U.S. gets away
with this, there will be no reason for it not to continue its Genghis Khan-like
rampage into Iran and Saudi Arabia, all the while trumpeting the hollow mantras
of "national security" and "war on terror."
This is exactly the rationale a falsely speaking America used in Vietnam.
"We had to destroy the village in order to save it." Only now it's: "In order
to fight terror we must use terror." It's all just another variant of Orwell's
"war is peace."
America wants to enslave the entire world to make it "free."
Another raison d'etre for this continuing American aggression in Iraq is
Israel, which seeks to expand its own borders far beyond what they are now,
and having a U.S.-controlled Iraq in which to dump Palestinian exiles would
fit nicely into the plans of this conscienceless neo-Nazi state.
I myself, however, don't believe that either oil or Israel are the primary
reasons behind this new Iraq attack. I believe it's really about controlling
the focus of the news, manipulating the opinions of the population, and most
of all, deflecting attention from the hunt for who really engineered the
World Trade Center disaster.
And, to a lesser extent, to divert the public's attention from the criminal
activities of Enron, Halliburton, and Harken, which robbed and in some cases
continue to rob the American people of billions of dollars at the exact time
when the American stock exchange is essentially bankrupt and certainly unworthy
of the attention of intelligent investors.
A war in Iraq keeps people from focusing on these more important issues,
and the petro-connected corporate news media are only too willing to assist
Bush in the deception.
Just look at what has happened in the recent past. When people began asking
questions about the 9/11 horror, anthrax attacks were invented to deflect
the public's attention.
When crucial votes about new security measures effectively nullifying the
U.S. Constitution caught the public's eye, terror alert after terror alert
grabbed the headlines, and the USA Patriot Act was passed without most of
the members of Congress even reading it.
Then, when the Enron effluent finally hit the fan, after tens of thousands
of people had been robbed of substantial amounts of money by Texas billionaires,
suddenly Iraq became a pressing problem, and the mass media has scarcely
looked elsewhere since. It has had absolutely no time or space to property
investigate Vice President Cheney's conspiracy with energy executives to
fleece the populace in the biggest scam since the S&L fire sales, which
not-so-coincidentally was another Bush operation.
Now, I'm sitting here on this bright, chilly Saturday morning watching CNN
blather on about the supposed pros and cons of getting the government-mandated
smallpox vaccine, but of course the beautiful anchorpeople fail to mention
the most salient fact about this issue: that all smallpox epidemics throughout
history have been caused by vaccination programs. This program was invented
as a response to those staged anthrax attacks, which have never been solved
and were dropped from the media lineup when the trail seemed to lead right
back to the government.
When was the last time you heard a word the criminal activities of Enron,
or all those other corporations which helped enrich our leaders while it
screwed ordinary people?
But most importantly, when was the last time you heard a whisper about why
the U.S. air defenses ALLOWED the 9/11 attacks to happen, why fires at the
bases of three towers burned for 100 days, or why billions of dollars changed
hands in stock machinations in the days immediately preceeding this unprecedented
A long time, for sure. All we've heard for the last six months is how Saddam
is connected to al-Qaida (not proven), how Iraq is hiding weapons of mass
destruction (not proven), and how Iraq is an imminent threat to the security
of the United States (you couldn't prove this in a court of law even if you
bought the whole jury!). And all these repetitive lies have served the purpose
of the criminals in charge, to distract us from the truly important issues.
That's why Bush can calmly comment about how peace demonstrations are a natural
and expected part of American "freedom." Although these statements make many
people vomit for their blatant insincerity, he can express this thought because
the demonstrations are an unwitting part of the coverup of the more important
questions, which certainly are about what cabal of insiders engineered the
execution of this "new Pearl Harbor" that a Republican think tank so urgently
recommended more than a year before the 9/11 tragedy.
Whatever happened to Osama bin Laden? He disappeared faster than last year's
hot new sitcom. I believe " if he is not dead, or never existed in the first
place " that someone in American intelligence knows exactly where Osama bin
Laden is, but that he's fulfilled his contract with the CIA, served his purpose,
and now is to be left alone. Hell, he's probably in the federal witnesss
And what of al-Qaida, the mystery revolutionary group that these days is
blamed for just about every untoward event in the entire world. al-Qaida,
like Saddam Hussein and Manuel Noriega, was originally funded by the United
States for geopolitical intrigues in central Asia. This relationship, like
the one with bin Laden, supposedly ended somewhere along the way, but the
people who are telling us this are the same big media buffoons who insists
that smallpox shots are safe, that Iraq is an imminent threat to the security
of the United States, and that polls say Bush is the cat's meow.
Maybe he's the dead cat's meow.
I don't know if it's really fair to call George W. Bush a terrorist president,
because he is really only using the terrroristic threat of using the American
military to get what he wants politically. But on the other hand, just as
he did signing all those Texas executions, he does seem to be enjoying it,
a Napoleonic martinet strutting upon the stage with his draft-dodging cronies,
playing commander-in-chief with a warchest of deadly, high-tech toys. So
maybe it is fair to call him a terrorist president.
There's an old biker legend that insists: when you fire a bullet at someone
in anger, that bullet will " someday, someplace, someway " come back on you.
Or, to put it more simply, as you sow, so shall you reap. Just think about
what's coming to us as a result of how our unelected president has terrorized
the whole world.
The real terrrorist is George W. Bush.
