Bush Can Justify as Moral, The Greatest of Evils

comment by Larry Ross
September 3, 2007

The religiously deluded, which includes most people in the US, using the right techniques and lies, can justify the greatest crimes and convince most of the US public oi the morality of what they are doing - even using nuclear weapons against non-nuclear nations. Even most US mass media will cooperate in this enterprise. And most of the US public will believe it, if the lies and justification is plausible and the media keeps articles from them which reveal the truth.
For revealing articles, search on Google using "Bush Is he religiously deluded and insane?" to illustrate this statement.


Secret Report: Corruption Is 'Norm' Within Iraqi Government

by David Corn
September 3, 2007

A Baghdad embassy study says Prime Minister Maliki is blocking corruption probes, his government is partly controlled by criminal gangs, and the U.S. is doing little to clean up the mess.
The most effective diplomats, like the most effective intelligence officers and foreign correspondents, possess empathy.  They have the intellectual, cultural and linguistic literacy to get inside the heads of those they must analyze or cover.  They know the vast array of historical, religious, economic and cultural antecedents that go into making up decisions and reactions.  And because of this—endowed with the ability to communicate and more able to find ways of resolving conflicts through diplomacy—they are less prone to blunders.

Retired British Generals Slam US Over Iraq

by Tariq Panja
September 2, 2007

"A second retired British general slammed the United States over its Iraq policy, saying in a newspaper interview published Sunday that it had been 'fatally flawed.' Major General Tim Cross, the most senior British officer involved in the postwar planning, said he had raised serious concerns about the possibility of Iraq falling into chaos, but said former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld dismissed the warnings."

The 9/11 Flight 93 Hoax
Your countrymen have been murdered and the more you delve into it the more it looks as though they were murdered by our government, who used it as an excuse to murder other people thousands of miles away.
If you ridicule others who have sincere doubts and who know factual information that directly contradicts the official report and who want explanations from those who hold the keys to our government, and have motive, means, and opportunity to pull off a 9/11, but you are too lazy or fearful, or ... to check into the facts yourself, what does that make you?

White House Manual Details How to Deal With Protesters

WASHINGTON - Not that they're worried or anything. But the White House evidently leaves little to chance when it comes to protests within eyesight of the president.

One Man Influences A Nation

comment by Larry Ross
August 20, 2007

So much of recent history, has stemmed from the influence, character, and malevolent skills of one Machiavellian manipulator - Karl Rove.
He created the grand strategies that won elections, and the words issued from George Bush's mouth. The following article shows how easily freedom and democracy can be corrupted in the name of practicing freedom and democracy. Wealth, plus greed, plus fear, plus lies, plus corrupted media wins 'democratic' elections for born again tin pot despots like George Bush. Rove knows when to get out - like a rat fleeing a sinking ship.

Bill Moyers Bids Farewell to Karl Rove

by Bill Moyers
August 17, 2007

Some closing thoughts now on politics. When Karl Rove announced his resignation from the White House earlier this week, he got some rave reviews. Here's a sample circulating on the Internet. . .
Karl Rove figured out a long time ago that the way to take an intellectually incurious draft-averse naughty playboy in a flight jacket with chewing tobacco in his back pocket and make him governor of Texas, was to sell him as God's anointed in a state where preachers and televangelists outnumber even oil derricks and jack rabbits. Using church pews as precincts Rove turned religion into a weapon of political combat - a battering ram, aimed at the devil's minions, especially at gay people.


Teaching End Times Fundamentalism to US Soldiers

comment by Larry Ross
August 11, 2007

Spreading 'End Times' fundamentalism, disguised as 'entertainment for the troops' is the other indicator how Bush's 'Born Again' fundamentalism is infecting and guiding his presidency and policies. True Believers make good Crusaders willing to slaughter infidels for George Bush and his pro-war cronies. By instilling 'junk' religious doctrines in captive minds, ordinary Americans can be more easily persuaded to kill and believe their war is moral, just and that their Lord approves whatever they do. No wonder the Pentagon approves this crusade.

Actor Stephen Baldwin, the youngest member of the famous Baldwin brothers, is no longer playing Pauly Shore's sidekick in comedy masterpieces like Biodome . He has a much more serious calling these days.
Baldwin became a right-wing, born-again Christian after the 9/11 attacks, and now is the star of Operation Straight Up (OSU), an evangelical entertainment troupe that actively proselytizes among active-duty members of the US military. As an official arm of the Defense Department's America Supports You program, OSU plans to mail copies of the controversial apocalyptic video game, Left Behind: Eternal Forces to soldiers serving in Iraq. OSU is also scheduled to embark on a "Military Crusade in Iraq" in the near future.


Hillary, Hiroshima and US Hubris

by Larry Ross
August 8, 2007

US policies and attitudes have shifted from nuclear deterrence with mass destruction and mutual suicide, to nuclear weapon use against any non-nuclear nation named as a US enemy. It's well documented in the Justin Raimondo article that follows. The named enemy is Iran and Bush has invented a number of lies, false accusations and suspicions to demonise Iran to the American people. Bush used the same 'big lie' technique prior to his unprovoked attack on Iraq in 2003. Then he had the alleged 9/11 'terrorist' attack and knowingly concocted lies linking Saddam Hussein to Bin Laden and this attack. Accusations were enough and worked for Bush in spite of mass demonstrations. Although there was lots of evidence these accusations were wrong, Bush's lies - effectively promoted and repeated by the mass media - were sufficient to get public and Congressional support.

August 8, 2007

The anniversary of the U.S. bombing of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is, perhaps, a good time to note that arguments rationalizing and even valorizing the use of nuclear weapons, once considered beyond the pale, are now back in fashion. Here we have yet more evidence of the Bizarro Effect , which, ever since 9/11, has stood everything – especially our traditional concept of morality – on its head, not only repealing the laws of logic and common sense but also ensconcing evil in the place of good.


Will US Allow Bush To Bomb Iran Soon?

by Larry Ross
July 29, 2007

Dr Frank gave us an important insight into the mental workings and decision-making of George Bush (below). Unless impeachment proceedings begin very soon, Dr Frank predicts Bush will attack Iran. It is not so much a matter of Bush deciding not to take this course, as the US Congress deciding to stop him before he can do it, and/or the US  military deciding not to implement a Bush command to strike Iran, because their loyalty to the US Constitution trumps Bush commands.
Unfortunately both possibilities are not strong and Bush has surrounded himself with yes men who will obey his every command.

Dangers of a Cornered George Bush

By Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity & Dr. Justin Frank
July 27, 2007
The “new” strategy of surging troops in Baghdad has simply wasted more lives and bought some time for the president. His strategy boils down to keeping as many of our soldiers engaged as possible, in order to stave off definitive defeat in Iraq before January 2009.
Bush is commander in chief, but Congress must approve funding for the war, and its patience is running out. The war – and the polls – are going so badly that it is no longer a sure thing that the administration will be able to fund continuance of the war.
There is an outside chance Congress will succeed in forcing a pullout starting in the next several months. What would the president likely do in reaction to that slap in the face?

Bush May Declare Martial Law

comment by Larry Ross
July 29, 2007
The following article by Dave Lindorff, author of "The Case For Impeachment", leaves no doubt that the American system is being geared for Bush to declare Martial law when and if he decides to proceed with the neocon plans for war with Iran. This will probably take place after a terrorist incident against the US - perhaps a US-staged 'false flag' attack on the US and blaming Iran.

Impeach Now - Or Face the End of Constitutional Democracy

by Paul Craig Roberts
July 17, 2007
Unless Congress immediately impeaches Bush and Cheney, a year from now the US could be a dictatorial police state at war with Iran.
Bush has put in place all the necessary measures for dictatorship in the form of "executive orders" that are triggered whenever Bush declares a national emergency. Recent statements by Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff, former Republican senator Rick Santorum and others suggest that Americans might expect a series of staged, or false flag, "terrorist" events in the near future.

The Threat Of Martial Law Is Real

by Dave Lindorff
July 27, 2007
The looming collapse of the US military in Iraq, of which a number of generals and former generals, including former Chief of Staff Colin Powell, have warned, is happening none too soon, as it my be the best hope for preventing military rule here at home.
From the looks of things, the Bush/Cheney regime has been working assiduously to pave the way for a declaration of military rule, such that at this point it really lacks only the pretext to trigger a suspension of Constitutional government. They have done this with the active support of Democrats in Congress, though most of the heavy lifting was done by the last, Republican-led Congress.
  Theft of Your Civil Liberties
by Larry Ross

This is a definitive account about how the Bush Administration has used the 9/11 attack to destroy freedom and democracy in America.
They have systematically removed many civil rights and liberties of Americans and visitors and enacted a myriad of new laws and regulations. These repressive measures may well effect other governments some of whom may enact similar repressive measures. At the same time Bush has decreed and legislated greatly increased power for himself and his administration. In effect he has become a de facto dictator

  False Flags May Start Iran War and Bush Dictatorship

Paul Craig Roberts knows what's really happening and likely to happen in Washington. He was a top official in the Reagan Administration and assistant editor of the Wall Street Journal. His dire warnings about the disasters to follow if Bush, Cheney and others are not impeached should be a spur to action.
All the indications are for a US war on Iran and all the machinery is in place for Bush to declare a crisis situation and make the US his dictatorship.
Of particular importance is Roberts warnings that Bush will stage a 'false flag' covert attack on the US and then blame Iran as a justification for war and a US dictatorship.

  Bush Normalises Torture

... Among the many examples of how the CIA today makes the agency detailed in the "crown jewels" documents look pallid by comparison is the system of torture created by the Bush administration in the treatment of suspected terrorists. Along with the Iraq War, the CIA's "renditions" and "black sites" greatly add to what Julianne Smith of the Center for Strategic and International Studies calls "the rather dark shadow [cast] on our relationship with our European allies," and much of the rest of the world.

  The War On Conciousness
by Larry Ross
July 9, 2007

I totally agree with this essay. In many ways it is very similar to what I have been saying on my website which covers many of the subjects mentioned. My only worry is that there is not the time or resources required to reach enough people that will somehow prevent the Bush regime from carrying out their agenda. ...
Bush is a committed 'End Times' believer, who thinks he is doing God's will by bring on Armageddon. This ending is looked forward to by a powerful minority of Americans. Their leaders have access to, and much influence on Bush.

  The War on Consciousness
by Paul Levy

We are truly in a war. It is not the war we imagine we are in, which is the way our true adversaries want it. It is not a foreign war against a foreign enemy. It is a war on consciousness, a war on our own minds. The global war on terror that is being fought around the world is an embodied reflection in the material world of a deeper, more fundamental war that is going on in the realm of consciousness itself.

  Is Bush's Religion Calling for Global Geneocide?
from Larry Ross
July 2, 2007

'End Timers' Urge Bush -'Bring on God's Nuclear Doomsday' and Rapture to Heaven for the Faithful. Bush's 'End Times' supporters believe this would be the biblical Armageddon, as foretold in an obscure passage in the Bible. They believe Bush is God's chosen one, and are urging him to make it all happen. They believe it will result in a rapture of the chosen faithful few to heaven. Almost everything Bush has done in the Middle East, and not done, is consistent with these religious bunkum beliefs.

President George W. Bush has become dangerously steeped in ideas of Armageddon, the Apocalypse, an imminent war with Satanic forces in the Middle East, and an urgency to construct an American theocracy to fulfill God's end-of-days plan, according to close observers.
Historians and investigative journalists following the "end-time Christian" movement have grown alarmed at the impact it may be having on Bush's Middle East policies, including the current war in Iraq, the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian crisis, the strife in Lebanon and the administration's repeated attempts to find a cause for war against Iran.

.... For Congress and the American people to accept that, even share in it, and Parry's following paper, is an awesome demonstration of how far Bush and his Administration have progressed toward the neocon's aim of global domination. Most politicians have shown they will fund his wars, share his lies and deceptions, but they will not help stop Bush. So it is up to individual concerned Americans.

One of the best Articles on Nuclear War On Iran

by Larry Ross
June 21, 2007

Created In May 2005, Chossudovsky's article remains one of the best I have seen on the US planned nuclear war on Iran. I therefore recommend that people read, or reread this article. Its message is re-enforced by millions of other articles, some by world experts if you Google search "US Nuclear War On Iran". Consider it and what you could do to help prevent such a holocaust, and reverse the machinery of war and deception, that is creating these doomsday scenarios. This article deals with the facts, not with the implications and some of the deeper, darker evil machinations of the Bush hierarchy. I will outline a few of these.

Planned US-Israeli Attack on Iran
by Michel Chossudovsky
May 1, 2005

At the outset of Bush's second term, Vice President Dick Cheney dropped a bombshell. He hinted, in no uncertain terms, that Iran was "right at the top of the list" of the rogue enemies of America, and that Israel would, so to speak, "be doing the bombing for us", without US military involvement and without us putting pressure on them "to do it":

  Exposing Libby's Lies and Fellow Neocons
comment by Larry Ross
June 17, 2007

... To Libby and his fellows lying is second nature and regarded as a tool in their kit box of tricks to deceive the public into wars like Iraq, and Iran to come. They invent various justifications for their lies, war plans and grandiose ambitions such as the goal of US global domination. They use the language and trigger words of 'Democracy, Freedom, Liberty, Free Expression', etc., to gain public approval and support for plans and wars based on gross deceit and deception. The psychopathogy of Bush makes the choice of such liars for top positions a very essential thing to do. If you decide on going for global domination, that means lots of lies, endless wars and killings and misery for all except those few people at the top of the military-industrial-political complex. President Eisenhower warned about the malign influence power of the "military-industrial complex" just before he left office in 1960. Almost 50 years later it is much more powerful. Wars are fabulously profitable for the few.

We have yet another remarkable revelation of the mindset of Washington's ruling clique of neoconservative elites - the people who took us to war from the safety of their Beltway bunkers. Even as Iraq grows bloodier by the day, their passion of the week is to keep one of their own from going to jail.
It is well-known that I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby - once Vice President Cheney's most trusted adviser - has been sentenced to 30 months in jail for perjury. Lying. Not a white lie, mind you. A killer lie. Scooter Libby deliberately poured poison into the drinking water of democracy by lying to federal investigators, for the purpose of obstructing justice.

... Americans will be fooled again and swallow any accusation Bush offers, as they did with his litany of lies to justify the war on Iraq. They have not been educated about how the US and other states have used covert 'false flag' operations and then blamed the nation they wish to attack. They have been conditioned to believe a similar litany of lies about Iran and most now regard Iran with fear and hate, as do the Republicans below. The 'false flag' provides them with phony 'justification' for an attack and they will believe Iran did it.


The Real Reason for Bush's Invasion of Iraq is a National Security Secret

American soldiers have been fighting and dying in Iraq since 2003, and Americans do not know why.

by Matthew Rothschild

With scarcely a mention in the mainstream media, President Bush has ordered up a plan for responding to a catastrophic attack.

Under that plan, he entrusts himself with leading the entire federal government, not just the Executive Branch.
And he gives himself the responsibility “for ensuring constitutional government.”
He laid this all out in a document entitled " National Security Presidential Directive /NSPD 51" and "Homeland Security Presidential Directive/HSPD-20."

  Almost War with China
comment by Larry Ross
June 4, 2007

This vitally important article in the US Congressional Quarterly is a very important revelation of how close the world came to a major US nuclear war with China . This almost happened because Taiwanese politicians were encouraged by US Defence Department highly-placed necons to declare independence from China. This was clandestinely encouraged by top neocon members of the Bush regime, such as Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Feith, Cambora and right wing Republicans in particular. We can thank Colin Powell, and the US State department at that time, for correcting this impression with independence-minded Taiwanese politicians, saying the US may not defend Taiwan if it declares independence.

  Vonnegut Names Bush & Associates As Psychopathic Personalities
comment by Larry Ross
May 31, 2007

Vonnegut accurately names the Bush medical ailment as that of having a psychopathic personality. This fits Bush and his associates and their behaviour like a glove. They have no guilt for their many lies and no remorse for their crimes. They feel justified in whatever they do. Thus Bush claims he is in communication with God who advises him. This kind of delusion in a 'so-called' Christian country like the US is accepted as perfectly normal. To the true believers this delusion is real and meritorious. It proves Bush is a man of God and is therefore virtuous and heavenly inspired. Bush's followers show that belief reinforces the Bush delusion, thus helping immunize Bush against advice contrary to his own psychopathic wishes and impulses.
Enlightened Americans will have to stop Bush and his associates with impeachment before he can destroy more countries and trigger a World War III.

  Blueprint for Dictatorship - Recent legislation sets us up for tyranny
by Justin Raimondo
April 30, 2007

America is headed for a military dictatorship – and recent legislation makes this all but inevitable. Last September, Congress passed the Defense Authorization Act , which empowered the president to declare martial law with very little provocation, namely in the aftermath of a "terrorist attack or incident." Having determined that "the execution of the laws" is hampered by the "incident," the president can unilaterally impose martial law – without the consent of Congress, which need only be informed of the event "as soon as practicable." The only condition attached instructs the president to report to Congress after 14 days, and every 14 days thereafter.

  Evidence of Accelerating Global Warming
by Larry Ross
April 26, 2007

There is increasing evidence that global warming is accelerating, as the following article demonstrates.
Even if serious steps were agreed by the world's governments, it would take years to reverse global warming trends. US leadership in such a crusade is unlikely. George Bush has earned a reputation as a climate change denier and will not even sign the weak  Kyoto treaty. This attitude guarantees that significant progress in reversing global warming is unlikely for the foreseeable future.
Unfortunately for humanity, but a benefit for Bush and the tiny clique surrounding him, they can play the global warming card to advance their wars and campaign for global domination.

  Insane Intellectualism Infects US Army
comment by Larry Ross
April 24, 2007

In this long 1997 paper, Major Peters reveals an arrogant self-assured insanity that justifies "a fair amount of killing" in the "perpetual wars" to come. Like many of his fellow psychopaths today in the Bush Administration, the suicidal nuclear potential of modern wars never crosses his mind. He accepts any and all nuclear risks as part of the unconscious background  in which he can give full reign to his primitive militaristic values. The possibility of self-extinction, like the extinction of some 99.5% of all species of life that have ever inhabited earth, never enters his mind or cools his ardour for war. Nor has it in other dictatorships depending on military might to build an empire. To understand the US approach to wars today and their utter lack of principle read this tract. Realise what rational, humane humanity is up against. Rational humane Americans  have been shanghaied into the service of a military-industrial police state.

  Constant Conflict

[A look behind the philosophy and practice of Americas push for domination of the worlds economy and culture. First published From Parameters , Summer 1997, pp. 4-14: US Army War College]
There will be no peace. At any given moment for the rest of our lifetimes, there will be multiple conflicts in mutating forms around the globe. Violent conflict will dominate the headlines, but cultural and economic struggles will be steadier and ultimately more decisive. The de facto role of the US armed forces will be to keep the world safe for our economy and open to our cultural assault. To those ends, we will do a fair amount of killing.
W e have entered an age of constant conflict. Information is at once our core commodity and the most destabilizing factor of our time. Until now, history has been a quest to acquire information; today, the challenge lies in managing information. Those of us who can sort, digest, synthesize, and apply relevant knowledge soar--professionally, financially, politically, militarily, and socially. We, the winners, are a minority.

They could have passed a special war tax, launched a high-profile “Buy War Bonds” campaign, and found other ways to demand “sacrifice” in the name of patriotism and victory. They could have staged more events featuring “our brave heroes who risk everything to preserve your way of life.” They even could have started conscription if only for symbolic reasons.
But our misleaders have not done any of this. Why not?
To understand, we need to think about the nature of war as a political instrument — for at its core, that is what it is.

  Exposing Guantanamo and David Hicks
by Larry Ross
April 11, 2007

The Bush regime has a criminal strategy of labelling anyone they choose, who they claim opposes their illegal attack and occupation of foreign countries, as an "enemy combatant". These people are usually completely innocent of such ridiculous charges. They can then be seized from anywhere in the world, imprisoned and tortured indefinitely without charge or trial at Guantanamo Bay or any other of a number of prisons in US client countries with a reputation for torture. Whether they are innocent or guilty of such trumped up unacceptable charges does not matter to the Bush regime.

  Land of the free, home of the War on Terrorism
by William Blum
April 8, 2007

"They told us this was one of the world's worst terrorists, and he got the sentence of a drunken driver," said Ben Wizner, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, referring to David Hicks, a 31-year-old Australian who in a plea bargain with a US military court will serve nine months in prison, largely in Australia. ... "If the United States were not ashamed of its conduct, it wouldn't hide behind a gag order," said Wizner.)

  Praying for the Apocalypse
by Chris Hedges
April 9, 2007

... The global nightmare that leads to the end of history is a visceral and disturbing expression of what believers feel about themselves and our world.  The horror of apocalyptic violence—the final aesthetic of the movement—at once terrifies and thrills followers.  It feeds dark fantasies of revenge and empowerment. 

  Atomic War And the Death Of Reason
by Larry Ross
April 2, 2007

This article spells out a reality of Bushism that few people have grasped. The erosion of social values, standards, disarmament and arms control treaties has been systematic since the beginning of the Bush reign in 2000.  Bush, the cowboy barbarian, is destroying our civilization. The general acceptance of the firing of honest men, and the hiring or cronies, often criminals, by the Bush regime is an indicator. The burying of scandals, the tortures, the false imprisonments of anyone, anywhere. The most frightening and stupefying aspect is how easily people have adapted to the new climate of unreason.

  Cryptocracy, Atomic War & the Death of Reason

  If the first casualty of war is the truth, then reason must be its first prisoner. Leave it to Americans to escalate the battlefield of the mind to an Orwellian level of shock therapy. Glued to our mind screens for the majority of our waking hours, we have become the audience at a global coliseum, cheering for enemy blood and applauding billion-dollar bombs bursting in air. Reason? Logic? Truth? Those were sold to the highest bidder long ago, to pay for the most monstrous killing machines ever created and our raging addiction to chemical energy.

  Physicists Warn Bush
comment by Larry Ross
April 2, 2007

The advice of experts from many professions, all warning against Bush's plans to wage pre-emptive war against a non-nuclear state - Iran,  has had no effect. The consequences of a nuclear war were spelled out by these eminent physicists. It had no effect. Bush and his neocons wish to control middle east oil resources. They believe they have the power and resources to do it and are willing to take whatever risks are involved. These Bush people are already war criminals for what they have done to Iraq with their lie-based illegal war. So they think they have nothing to lose. Congress is co-operating by funding their wars, repeating their lies, and doing nothing to prevent Bush's planned nuclear war on Iran. This is the end of American Democracy. A new dark ages threatens to engulf humanity for ages to come, unless a global war terminates all life.

  Prominent US Physicists Send Letter to President Bush
by Kim McDonald
April 17, 2006

Thirteen of the nation's most prominent physicists have written a letter to President Bush, calling U.S. plans to reportedly use nuclear weapons against Iran “gravely irresponsible” and warning that such action would have “disastrous consequences for the security of the United States and the world.”
The physicists include five Nobel laureates, a recipient of the National Medal of Science and three past presidents of the American Physical Society, the nation's preeminent professional society for physicists.

  So Many Threats - Even Asteroids
by Larry Ross
April 1, 2007

So many factors threaten human existence. .... One would think that such warnings from top people, who know from the inside, would result in remedial behaviour from rational human beings who wish to live and want their children and other human beings to continue to live on our planet. But it is not so.

  Will Humanity go the Way of the Dinosaur?
by Robert B. Reich
March 31, 2007

According to a new report from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, some 100,000 asteroids and comets routinely pass between the Sun and the Earth's orbit. About 20,000 of these orbit close enough to us that they could one day hit the Earth and destroy a major city.
But the really worrying news from NASA is that over a thousand of these things are large enough (almost a mile wide in diameter) and their orbits close enough to us as to pose a real potential hazard of crashing into the Earth with enough force to end most life on this planet. Scientists think this is what killed off the dinosaurs about 65 million years ago.

  Bush's Insanity: How It Can Destroy Humanity
by Larry Ross
March 31, 2007

Bush, Blair, Howard and other leaders, boosted by US-dictated anti-Iran Security Council resolutions, are bursting with desire to bomb Iran as Pinter says... very few seem to care or think about the probable number of dire consequences and results of such barbarity. It is a few very perceptive writers on internet who care. Certainly not our crop of current world leaders. Like Tony Blair, who lies so well and convincingly for Bush, as he moves his eyebrows up and down to get our agreement.  Bush's tamed world leaders talk languidly about diplomacy as Bush and his 'coalition-of-the-willing' deploy their military forces for the long-planned assault on Iran.


Why George Bush is Insane

by Harold Pinter
March 30, 2007

.... The US is at this moment developing advanced systems of "weapons of mass destruction" and it prepared to use them where it sees fit. It has more of them than the rest of the world put together. It has walked away from international agreements on biological and chemical weapons, refusing to allow inspection of its own factories. The hypocrisy behind its public declarations and its own actions is almost a joke.
The United States believes that the three thousand deaths in New York are the only deaths that count, the only deaths that matter. They are American deaths. Other deaths are unreal, abstract, of no consequence.

by Heather Wokusch
March 29, 2007

The Bush administration continues moving closer to a nuclear attack on Iran, and we ignore the obvious buildup at our peril.
Russian media is sounding alarms. In February, ultra-nationalist leader Vladimir Shirinovsky warned that the US would launch a strike against Tehran at the end of this month. Then last week, the Russian News and Information Agency Novosti (RIA-Novosti) quoted military experts predicting the US will attack Iran on April 6th, Good Friday.

by Larry Ross
March 26, 2007

This article presents the realities of Bush's intentions and plans to attack Iran. As in the Iraq War. Bush's UK  poodle has staged a provocation in violation of Iranian waters. This will appear to be more authentic, than if the US did it. It also provides the UK with an excuse to satisfy Parliament and the Public, for its participation with the US in a war on Iran.

  The Coming War With Iran - Is it inevitable?
by Justin Raimondo
March 26, 2007

The timing of the recent incident in which 15 British sailors were arrested by Iran at the mouth of the Shatt al-Arab waterway for purportedly entering Iranian waters couldn't have been more provocative if it had been planned that way. And perhaps it was. The question is, however, who did the planning?

  Are We Being Conditioned To Accept Nuclear War?
by Larry Ross
March 24, 2007

Have you ever wondered why people were so worried about nuclear dangers in past decades, yet so unconcerned now?
One reason is that in spite of many nuclear crisis - (remember how people evacuated US cities during the Cuban missile crisis)   - nothing ever happened. So people are used to the dire predictions never eventuating. Also, with the end of the cold war, they have been taught to believe that the nuclear risks have decreased, and some undoubtedly have. But some, and new risks, have got much worse. The media deliberately avoids informing the public about the increasing nuclear risks; that the US Defence budget is the highest in history; and that the Bush Administration is making new nuclear weapons to go with the new nuclear doctrines.

  Bangor Sub Base Stocked For Nuclear Warfare
by Larry Ross
March 23, 2007

The following article gives yet more proof that the US is preparing for nuclear war. Whether a nuclear attack on Iran will rapidly escalate to a general nuclear war is unknown. But it seems a likely result for a variety of reasons.  What is stupefying is the casualness with which people regard the obvious and growing nuclear threat - the lack of media coverage - Bush's "all options are on the table" threats - the many preparations. - the sheer irrationality of the Bush regime and its statements - the colossal costs of its illegal wars. It is difficult to figure out why people are not more worried and active to prevent this threat to themselves, families and world.

  Bangor an indicator of military intentions
by Glen Milner
March 19, 2007

The Trident submarine base at Bangor, just 20 miles from Seattle, has become home to the largest single stockpile of nuclear warheads in the U.S. arsenal. In November 2006, the Natural Resources Defense Council declared that the 2,364 nuclear warheads at Bangor are about 24 percent of the entire U.S. arsenal.
Most of the warheads are deployed on "launch-ready" or hair-trigger alert status.
The Trident submarine system at Bangor has long been a leading indicator of U.S. military intentions. During the Cold War, the Trident system represented a major shift in nuclear war fighting strategy -- from mutually assured destruction to a pre-emptive first strike.

  Impeach Bush - The Only Solution?
by Larry Ross
March 22, 2007

How do you deal with a power-mad and delusional President pursuing  a plan of endless wars for Empire, who has already killed at least 655,000 people and plans to soon begin a new war on Iran using nuclear weapons? I think Dennis Kucinich is right, that Bush must be impeached, urgently, if this disaster is to be stopped before Bush's military activities trigger a world war III.

  "Impeachment: I'm asking you. Do you think it's time?"
by Dennis Kucinich
March 21, 2007

This past week in the Congress of the United States, I noted that the administration has threatened aggressive war against Iran. This is a violation of the UN charter. Charters are treaties. Article 6 of the Constitution of the United States says that treaties are the law of our land, the supreme law of our land. It's illegal to threaten aggressive war against another nation.
My fellow Americans. We are in an interesting condition in this country, where we are told to take impeachment off the table and keep on the table a U.S. military attack against Iran.     See also: Impeach him or hang him?

  The Madness of George W. Bush
by Larry Ross
March 20, 2007

This paper has some valuable insights into the character and relatively unknown mental illness affecting our society. It is particularly incarnate in George Bush. Paul Levy has called it "malignant egophrenic" illness or malignant egophrenia. In fact the illness could be named other known psychiatric names but "ME disorder" is the term used here.
As he says "George Bush does not exist in isolation. We can view his entire Administration (Cheney, Rice, Wolfowitz, et all) as well as the corporate, military industrial complex that they are co-dependently enmeshed with, the media they control, and the voters that support them, as interconnected parts of the whole system, or a "field".

  The Madness of George W. Bush
by Paul Levy
November 28, 2004

The following essay offers a penetrating look at the psychopathology of George W. Bush and the collective psychosis that is gripping America, from a Jungian perspective. (This should be read as part of a series, beginning with my previous post, Parading Jesus , in which I'm exploring the idea of approaching the problem in terms of the interconnection of a "many headed hydra," or what this author terms as an "interrelated field." I think if you read this piece in its entirety you'll appreciate why it is important to look at the problem as a symbiosis rather than isolated parts.

  Red Alert To War Propaganda
by Larry Ross
March 19, 2007

This paper is an excellent guide to how propaganda permeates and influences our opinions and guides our reactions. It is one of the best I have seen. Given the power of the Bush Administration over the media, it is unlikely that the mass media will report the facts about Bush's deceits to initiate wars of aggression. 


United State of Minds

by Daniel M Pourkesali
March 15, 2007

America's methods of mind control or better put, manufacturing consent through efficient and careful use of media, must be the envy of every tyrannical dictator ruling the most oppressive regimes in the world. . . .
. . . Shaping of one's attitude, beliefs, and personality without that person's knowledge or consent works by gradually exerting increasing control through a variety of techniques which includes repetition and herding.

  Bush Hides Crimes
by Larry Ross
March 16, 2007

Bush has established a record as spinning a litany of lies to fool the American people and Congress into supporting an illegal assault, bombing, invasion and occupation of Iraq . He is also spinning similar lies about Iran as an excuse to make war on Iran . He has destroyed Iraq and killed some 655,000 Iraqis. Thus he is a war criminal who has violated the US Constitution and should be impeached. There is suspicion that his crimes may be far greater, regarding the 9/11 issue. So is it any wonder that he wants to be able to suppress if not destroy any evidence of these crimes? The fact that he has taken steps to prevent some of his papers from being seen indicates this.

  Bush Makes History by Not Also Writing It
March 13, 2007

On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, President Bush was inside Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Fla., to promote his education reform when he learned that America was under attack.
This was a day that changed the Bush presidency and the nation's history.
Scholars and archivists will one day travel to the Bush presidential library on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas to learn more about the nation's leaders and the decisions they made on that day.
The history textbooks and papers that they will write after visiting the Bush library might very well be incomplete.
"On November 1, 2001, less than two months after the September 11, 2001 attacks, Bush issued an executive order that allows former presidents to keep some of their papers secret indefinitely. This executive order violates the Presidential Records Act of 1978, legislation that guarantees public access to papers 12 years after a president has left office.... This order should be overturned so that historians and scholars will get an honest portrait of the Bush administration and future administrations," writes the Republican.

March 13, 2007

Paul Craig Roberts has that rare ability to sum up in one page what's happened to our world. The U.S. has been taken over by a criminal conspiracy, using the wars they started and phoney threats to establish a dictatorship in America . They use the familiar words of 'freedom, democracy and liberty' as a cover and justification. Most people are either not aware, deny, or justify this process. They don't know, or feel, the effects of what's happened to their culture. They seldom used their freedoms and rights before. Indeed, they were hardly aware of them or their origin, or their establishment in law. So they don't really miss them - at least, not yet.

March 12, 2007

Alas, Franz Kafka's novel, The Trial, published in 1925 and George Orwell's novel, 1984, published in 1949, also have been turned into period pieces by the practices of the Bush Regime.
In Kafka's novel, Josef K. is arrested for reasons never given, tried for an unspecified crime, and executed.
The Trial is the model for the Bush Regime's Military Tribunals, which permit execution on the basis of hearsay, secret evidence unknown to the defendant, or confession extracted by torture.

  George Bush's Samson Option
by Stephen Lendman
March 9, 2007

Full-scale war on Iran may just be a concocted terrorist attack away from starting the "shock and awe."
The Samson Option is terminology used to explain Israel's intention to use its nuclear arsenal as an ultimate defense strategy if its leaders feel threatened enough to think they have no alternative. It comes from the biblical Samson said to have used his great strength to bring down the pillars of a Philistine temple, downing its roof and killing himself and thousands of Philistine tormentors. It's a strategy saying if you try killing me, we'll all die together, or put another way, we'll all go together when we go. Richard Wagner had his apocalyptic version in the last of his four operas of Der Ring des Nibelungen - Gotterdammerung, or Twilight of the Gods based on Norse mythology referring to a prophesied war of the Gods resulting in the end of the world.

  A predator becomes more dangerous when wounded
by Noam Chomsky The Guardian
March 9, 2007

In the energy-rich Middle East, only two countries have failed to subordinate themselves to Washington's basic demands: Iran and Syria. Accordingly both are enemies, Iran by far the more important. As was the norm during the cold war, resort to violence is regularly justified as a reaction to the malign influence of the main enemy, often on the flimsiest of pretexts. Unsurprisingly, as Bush sends more troops to Iraq, tales surface of Iranian interference in the internal affairs of Iraq - a country otherwise free from any foreign interference - on the tacit assumption that Washington rules the world.

. . . But will it be enough, will it reach enough people? Will it actually motivate them to do enough to stop the Bush regime? Bear in mind the colossal forces, power, money and millions of skilled personnel of the military-industrial-congressional-media complex. Most are dedicated servants of the Bush neocon regime. Opposing that are some dedicated US citizens. But is there enough to make a dent in the plans, plots and covert deceptions of the trillion dollar Bush regime?

Richard Mynick shows how America, as people knew it, is disappearing and being transformed into a de-facto dictatorship - a perpetual war machine serving the military-industrial-governmental complex. There is little or no resistance. People are behaving like lambs. It is an indictment of what America is becoming under a blanket of well-designed false propaganda, ladled out to a confused public by a corrupted media.

After that Bush was the hero saving America from terrorism.

Comment by Larry Ross
February 25, 2007

The amount of power Bush has accumulated and the ease with which he even exceeds that is very disturbing.  The testimony of Washington insiders and important Republicans on Bush's abuse of power is another indicator that Bush is out of control. I think people who look forward to the end of Bush's term in office could be too optimistic. I don't think that Bush is the kind of person who will give up power willingly. By declaring a major war, using nuclear weapons as he is allowed to do by law, declaring an emergency and martial law, legislation extending his term, postponing elections because of the crisis, Bush and his associates may try and extend their control of power indefinitely. I hope I'm wrong. Remember that they all have committed grave crimes against international law and the US Constitution. They are have strong motives to continue to hang on to power. Anything can  happen if Bush launches his long-planned war on Iran.

  US To Commit Mass Genocide In Iran
Comment by Larry Ross
February 20, 2007

Bush is already one of history's most monstrous war criminals having lied to gain support for his illegal invasion and bombing of Iraq and killing some 500,000 Iraqis as well as provoking a civil war there. Now he is close to committing a far greater genocide crime with his 'Operation Iranian Freedom' involving the US bombing of some 10,000 targets in Iran. He may use nuclear weapons, as suggested by other articles, or conventional weapons as suggested here. Either way there will be thousands of Iranians murdered, perhaps millions, by Bush's assault in cold blood for no legitimate reason. With the crazy logic of Bush's tiny group of neocon madmen, anything goes.

The Bush administration's preparation to strike Iran is complete with the top commander of the US Central Command having received computerised plans for ‘Operation Iranian Freedom', a report has said.
"American military operations for a major conventional war with Iran extend far beyond targeting suspect WMD (weapons of mass destruction) facilities and will enable President George Bush to destroy Iran's military, political and economic infrastructure overnight using conventional weapons," the journal New Statesman has claimed.

  What Nuclear War Means
Comment by Larry Ross
February 13, 2007

Paul Craig Roberts writes: if Bush nuclear attacks Iran "the populations of many countries would suffer for generations from radio-active particles in the air, water, and food chains. Deaths would number in the many millions" ..."far surpassing the atrocities of the Nazi and Communist regimes." I completely agree with Dr Helen Caldicott who expressed "bewilderment why the rest of the world does not stand up to the US and force a halt to its crimes against humanity." He quoted Vladimir Putin as saying that the US was trying to establish a "uni-polar world" which he defined as "one single center of power, one single center of force and one single master....a formula for disaster" Roberts pointed out that it was foreign loans that were financing Bush's wars of aggression. If Japan and China would stop loaning billions to the US, it could lead to the collapse of the dollar and stop Bush's wars.

What would be the consequences of a US or Israeli attack on Iran's nuclear energy sites?
. . .catastrophic deaths that would result from a conventional attack on nuclear facilities and the long-term increase in cancer deaths from the radiation release.  
Should the attack be made with nuclear weapons--as some of Bush's criminally insane neoconservative advisers advocate--the populations of many countries would suffer for generations from radioactive particles in air, water, and food chains.  Deaths would number in the many millions.

Brezinski analyses the war in Iraq, why it happened, what will happen, and how Bush may blame Iran as justification for war, and what should be done to end the quagmire - all in half a page. Brilliant. He also says "the administration is developing a mythical, historical narrative to justify the case for a protracted  and potential expanding war...with much of the world of Islam at large" The big question is: will the US Senate allow him to do it? Or get serious about stopping him in time. Impeachment may be the only way.

Testifying before the Senate foreign relations committee Thursday, Brzezinski skewered U.S. administration policy as driven by "imperial hubris" and a disaster on historic, strategic and moral grounds.
While other former U.S. officials and ex-generals have criticized administration policy in committee hearings, none savaged it to the degree Brzezinski did.

Tom Engelhardt has written a superb essay describing the insanity of the White House race to war with Iran and the expected appalling and catastrophic results. It is very convincing, and very well documented by a very talented insightful commentator.     
He is scared as any normal and informed person would be.  I hope influential Americans, including awakened politicians, are finally scared enough to depart from their comfort zones and actually take effective action to stop this madness. There are many things concerned people could do - if there is the will. The future of humanity on this planet is at stake.

by Tom Engelhardt
February 7, 2007

Thelma and Louise Imperialism - Let me make an argument about Bush administration Iran policy -- about the possibility that a regime-change-style, shock-and-awe air assault might someday be launched on Iranian nuclear facilities and associated targets -- based on no insider knowledge, just the logic of George-and-Dick's Thelma-and-Louise-style imperialism.
Of course, we all know at least half the story by now. Is there anybody in official Washington -- other than our President, Vice President, the Vice President's secretive imperial staff, assorted backs-against-the-wall neocon supporters lodged in the federal bureaucracy, and associated right-wing think tanks -- who isn't sweating blood, popping pills, and wondering what in the world to do about our delusional leaders?

  Iraq Quagmire: US Insanity Rules
Comment by Larry Ross
February 8, 2007

"What's going on in Washington is unbelievable" says Larry Derfner. How true. "Bush is getting away with it. He's escalating the war in Iraq.
He's sending 21.500 more soldiers over there. Nobody's stopping him, nobody's going to, either - not the Democrats, not the Republicans and not American public opinion." Derfner wrote.
What Derfner did not say, is that US escalation in Iraq is part of the preparation for a sudden US attack on Iran, which in turn is part of the neocon plan for US domination of middle east oil resources.
The current increase of US demonization of Iran and increase in Bush lies as justification for military action is influencing US public opinion to hate and fear Iran as the number one enemy of the US. Only a small handful of US politicians challenge Bush's lies, and they don't get reported.

  Telling Americans about False Flag
Comment by Larry Ross
January 24, 2007

At last a courageous US politician, Congressman Ron Paul, has warned fellow Americans that the Bush Administration may stage a false flag operation to incriminate Iran.
Bush can then blame Iran and justify his decision to attack Iran. Many of the comments that follow this short news item suggest that the US will stage some kind of nuclear attack on its own citizens to justify Bush's planned nuclear attack on Iran. Because of the enormous casualties and very long term disastrous consequences, it seems logical for the Bush regime to stage a very big false flag attack on the US - an attack so big, that few would believe that Bush would have or could have committed such a mass killing of Americans. If that's the way it happens, Bush should get all the support he wants, for whatever wars he wants against anyone he names. As Hitler wrote: "The bigger the lie the more people will believe it" 

  House Republican Fears False Flag Operation in Persian Gulf
January 14, 2007

Ron Paul stood on the floor of the House of Representatives and, in an open session, on the record, said, “A contrived Gulf of Tonkin-type incident may well occur to gain popular support for an attack on Iran.”
This is incredible, even by my standards. I watched this clip a few times, and I still don't believe it.
That's the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives! Where's the media coverage of this? * sigh * Listen to the video and read the responses.....

  Preparing For and Justifying Nuclear Extinction
Comment by Larry Ross
January 22, 2007

There are about 25,000 nuclear weapons, many on hair-trigger 'launch-on-warning' alert status.
Humanity could become virtually extinct in an afternoon "by accident, miscalculation or act of madness" as President Kennedy warned at the UN in 1962 and many other statesmen and experts have warned since.

  Nuclear Destruction    A Brief History of Cold War Nuclear Developments

The Nazi death camps and the mushroom cloud of nuclear explosion are the two most potent images of the mass killings of the twentieth century. As World War II ended and the cold war began, the fear of nuclear annihilation hung like a cloud over the otherwise complacent consumerism of the Eisenhower era. The new technologies of mass death exacted incalculable costs, draining the treasuries of the United States and the Soviet Union and engendering widespread apocalyptic fatalism, distrust of government, and environmental degradation.

  Doomsday Clock Moves Us Closer to Becoming a Planet of the Nuclear Dead
Comment by Larry Ross

The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists has moved the hands of the Doomsday Clock two minutes closer to midnight - to 11.55 I believe it should be closer. In their stated reasons the BAS did not mention that the Bush Administration now allows for nuclear weapons to be introduced into a conventional conflict on the recommendation of US field military commanders. Also, it does not mention that President Bush has the legal authority to wage a pre-emptive nuclear war on enemies chosen by his administration on the basis of so-called US 'intelligence' about the alleged intentions of such chosen enemies.

The BAS said that the world faced its most critical choices since the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of the Second World War.
"We stand at the brink of a Second Nuclear Age. Not since the first atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki has the world faced such perilous choices," it said.

  More Evidence That US Plans War With Iran Before April 2007
Comment by Larry Ross
January 19, 2007

There are many authoritative articles by experts and Washington insiders that Bush plans the ultimate insanity - a nuclear war with Iran that may become global and involve some of the other nine nuclear weapon states. Here is another excellent addition to the list.   Do readers fully realise how easily this latest piece of Bush insanity can end all life on this planet?   I hope people realise this and take action before its too late.

US timetable driven by retirement of Bush's major ally, PM Tony Blair
The Editor-in-Chief of the Arab Times reports that a “reliable source” in Washington has provided detailed information about the forthcoming US hard-power attack on Iran's nuclear and oil industries. According to the un-named sources cited in the Arab Times, the US timetable is being driven by the retirement of George Bush's major ally, Prime Minister Tony Blair.

"After years of interrogation and abuse have established that few, if any, of the hundreds of Muslim detainees at Guantanamo Bay are the deadly terrorists they have been held out to be, why are we still holding them?"

The real reason the Bush administration won't back down on Guantanamo.
Why is the United States poised to try Jose Padilla as a dangerous terrorist, long after it has become perfectly clear that he was just the wrong Muslim in the wrong airport on the wrong day?
Why is the United States still holding hundreds of detainees at Guantanamo Bay , long after years of interrogation and abuse have established that few, if any, of them are the deadly terrorists they have been held out to be?

  US Attack on Iran by April 2007
Comment by Larry Ross
January 15, 2007

This report is the first I've seen giving an actual date for the US attack as being before April 2007.
Our web site has many authoritative articles spelling out in detail the plans the US has made to attack Iran with nuclear weapons, and the horrendous, long term consequences of such an insanity. But Bush and Chaney are desperate men who rejected all counsel for moderation and negotiation. They know they could be indicted for multiple war crimes, such as lying to the American people in order to fool them into giving support for a war with Iraq.

....Claiming the attack will be launched from the sea and not from any country in the region, he said “the US and its allies will target the oil installations and nuclear facilities of Iran ensuring there is no environmental catastrophe or after effects.” “Already the US has started sending its warships to the Gulf and the build-up will continue until Washington has the required number by the end of this month,” the source said. “US forces in Iraq and other countries in the region will be protected against any Iranian missile attack by an advanced Patriot missile system.”

  How Far Will Bush Go?
Comment by Larry Ross
January 15, 2007

Does anybody believe there is a crime the Bush regime would not commit? After all those lies to get the US public to support the illegal war against Iraq, and murdering 655,000 people, setting up false imprisonment and torture prisons in many different countries, spying on Americans, and others,  I don't believe there is any crime the Bush regime would not commit. They have sneered at the soul of America, stole it, and jumped on it, as the following article illustrates.

Sometimes you look around and wonder how things could have gone so wrong so quickly. America has become the antithesis of everything she purports to be. We are the greatest purveyors of violence the world has ever known; the largest weapons dealers on earth; and death and misery are our principal exports. Everything is for sale here, even men's tormented souls—at least, those who still possess them.

  Fundamentalist Response: More War
Comment by Larry Ross
January 9, 2007

Here is a brilliant article by Robert Parry, adding depth and more facts to Paul Craig Roberts' articles. They all predict that Bush is defying all logic and advice, and firing those that disagree with him, in order to pursue the road to more war in Iraq , and a new nuclear war against Iran.
Parry concludes this may lead to a fiery Armageddon as I and many others have also concluded in many articles on this site.
Some suggest that an Armageddon, as predicted in the Old Testament, could be the real goal of a born-again, fundamentalist Christian President who believes he follows the advice of God, and that God sanctions his wars.

George W. Bush has purged senior military and intelligence officials who were obstacles to a wider war in the Middle East, broadening his options for both escalating the conflict inside Iraq and expanding the fighting to Iran and Syria with Israel 's help.

The American people are in the position of continuing to invest billions of dollars to fund illegal, unjustified wars, based on lies invented by Bush's neucons. The US is risking a world war III by catering to the mad grandiose theories of the neurons. Boyle, who was trained as one, knows how they have been trained to think like Nazis.

  Will Americans Wake Up In Time?
Comment by Larry Ross
January 2, 2007

.... Parry's article below reports that the Bush regime is planning to go ahead with its expansion of the Iraq  war, and by nuclear bombing Iran. This parallels many other articles on this site which say the same thing. All predict very, very serious consequences in many areas.
Parry also predicts there will be "some provocation that can be blamed on Syria and Iran , thus justifying the expanded war."
My own prediction is that the "provocation" referred to by Parry, will be a vitally important False Flag operation. It would be very carefully planned by the Bush Administration to stage some kind of an attack, perhaps a terrorist attack on the US, like 9/11, for which the Bush Regime has planned to blame Iran. ...

Intelligence sources say President Bush -- along with Israel's Ehud Olmert and the UK's Tony Blair -- are weighing the possibility of Israeli-led attacks on Syria and Iran in early 2007, with the United States providing logistical back-up.
