Ban the Bomb Creation on New Brighton Beach

A once in a life-time, not to be missed
February 16, 2008

Peter Donnelly, the well known sand artist, also know as the Sand Dancer, is generously donating his time and talent to honouring the 50th anniversary of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament by creating the CND logo on the New Brighton beach in Christchurch on Saturday 16th of February starting at 6pm and finishing approximately 7.30


Whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg: Bush Likely to Attack Iran, Impeachment a Must

by Sari Gelzer
February 7, 2008

The American public and media have not picked up on the urgency surrounding a pending war with Iran.
Daniel Ellsberg, perhaps the country's most famous whistleblower, fears that before the Bush administration leaves office, it will try to attack Iran.
Indeed, Ellsberg's argument gained merit as George W. Bush increased his rhetoric against Iran when he delivered his final State of the Union Address. Bush accused Iran of training militia extremists in Iraq and emphasized the United States will confront its enemies.

9/11 U.S. Attack Evidence

The Shocking Truth – Nuclear War With Iran The Talk in Cathedral Square, Christchurch
...People with impeccable credentials have written that the so-called terrorist attack on New York and the Pentagon on Sept 9, 2001 was an inside job. Also, that the so-called al-Qaeda terrorists were really pawns in a much bigger conspiracy, organised by the Bush Administration to create a new enemy and justify their global crusade and wars against terrorism.

At the Nuclear Tipping Point

by David Krieger
January 16, 2008

The latest Wall Street Journal article by George Shultz, William Perry, Henry Kissinger and Sam Nunn, “Toward a Nuclear-Free World,” published on January 15, 2008, has a greater sense of urgency than their first joint article a year earlier.  They express grave concerns that we are at a nuclear “tipping point” with “a very real possibility that the deadliest weapons ever invented could fall into dangerous hands.”  As if these weapons are not already in dangerous enough hands.  The former policy makers and Cold Warriors are warning us that, without change, nuclear dangers will worsen.  They leave to our imaginations what will happen in a world in which “deterrence is decreasingly effective and increasingly hazardous.”

Toward a Nuclear-Free World

by George Shultz, William Perry, Henry Kissinger and Sam Nunn
January 15, 2008

The accelerating spread of nuclear weapons, nuclear know-how and nuclear material has brought us to a nuclear tipping point. We face a very real possibility that the deadliest weapons ever invented could fall into dangerous hands.

Toward a Nuclear-Free World

by George Shultz, William Perry, Henry Kissinger and Sam Nunn
January 4, 2007

Nuclear weapons today present tremendous dangers, but also an historic opportunity. U.S. leadership will be required to take the world to the next stage -- to a solid consensus for reversing reliance on nuclear weapons globally as a vital contribution to preventing their proliferation into potentially dangerous hands, and ultimately ending them as a threat to the world.


Excellent Analysis of 9/11 Questions

comment by Larry Ross
September 5, 2007

Fisk does an excellent analysis of 9/11 questions, but like so many prominent analysts stops short of drawing logical conclusions. There are many reasons and evidence why one can reasonably conclude that Bush and his associates planned and executed 9/11 to give themselves excuses to blame the Arabs and other Moslem states and initiate the 'war on terror'.

Even I question the 'truth' about 9/11

by Robert Fisk
August 25, 2007

Each time I lecture abroad on the Middle East, there is always someone in the audience – just one – whom I call the "raver". Apologies here to all the men and women who come to my talks with bright and pertinent questions – often quite humbling ones for me as a journalist – and which show that they understand the Middle East tragedy a lot better than the journalists who report it. But the "raver" is real. He has turned up in corporeal form in Stockholm and in Oxford, in Sao Paulo and in Yerevan, in Cairo, in Los Angeles and, in female form, in Barcelona. No matter the country, there will always be a "raver".


Excellent Analysis of US War On Iran

comment by Larry Ross
September 5, 2007

This excellent analysis by Chris Hedges fails to suggest that many US plans call for the US use of nuclear weapons against Iran although many good analysts have produced articles indicating this.
He and many other good commentators in the US also fail to describe the tricks and pretexts that the Bush Administration may use, such as staging a  'False Flag' attack on the US and blaming Iran as an excuse to launch a US attack. 
Articles after the event will be too late and will either not be printed or will be ignored. If the world survives a possible holocaust, full war will ensure throughout the Middle East and perhaps elsewhere for the indefinite future. The future and great expectations of humanity will changed and consequences extreme.

Iran: The Next Quagmire

by Chris Hedges
September 4, 2007

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.

Cancer in Iraq Vets Raises Possibility of Toxic Exposure

by Carla McClain
August 23, 2007

After serving in Vietnam nearly 40 years ago - and receiving the Bronze Star for it - the Tucson soldier was called back to active duty in Iraq.
While there, he awoke one morning with a sore throat. Eighteen months later, Army Sgt. James Lauderdale was dead, of a bizarrely aggressive cancer rarely seen by the doctors who tried to treat it.
As a result, his stunned and heartbroken family has joined growing ranks of sickened and dying Iraq war vets and their families who believe exposures to toxic poisons in the war zone are behind their illnesses - mostly cancers, striking the young, taking them down with alarming speed.


More Wars Will Destroy US

comment by Larry Ross
August 25, 2007

Paul Craig Roberts tells how the US Congress and democratic opposition are no longer acting as the hope of the nation in stopping Bush's illegal war on Iraq, or his planned war with Iran. The consequences of these wars are not considered by the deluded war-crazed neocons. Roberts does not mention that the Bush regime has "nuclear weapons on the table" according to Bush. After an initial conventional weapon attack, and expected Iranian retaliation, the Bush regime may use that as their justification for the planned nuclear strike. Also not mentioned is the possibility that the Bush regime will stage a false flag attack on the US and blame Iran, as a method of gaining public support and consent for anything. Bush wants. There will then be a media blitz designed to fool their public and others, and gain the support and participation of governments in the Bush war plan.

More War on the Horizon

by Paul Craig Roberts
August 23, 2007

pullout from Iraq while I'm president, declares George W. Bush. On to Iran, declares Vice President Cheney.
Israel is a “peace-seeking state” that needs $30 billion of US taxpayers' money for war, declares State Department official Nicholas Burns.
The Democratic Congress, if not fully behind the Iraqi war, at least no longer is in the way of it.
Nor are the Democrats in the way of the Bush regime's build up for initiating war with Iran.


Karl Rove Loses Debate on War With Iran - Cheney Wins

comment by Larry Ross
August 21, 2007

Apparently Rove, "Bush's brains" was against a war with Iran, which Cheney wanted. Karen Kwiatkowski's article is among many that indicate this war is now more likely. The many disastrous consequences, including escalation to a much wider, longer war and/or series of wars are okay with Cheney, Bush and the rest of the Bush Administration. If staged adroitly, based on the present broad range of lies, as were used to gain support for the Iraq war, Bush may also get away with this new deception.

What Will Clueless and Hopeless Do Next?

by Karen Kwiatkowski
August 20, 2007

Karl Rove's long-awaited departure from the White House makes sense, and not just because he really does need to spend more time with his family. Rove is a strange guy. And I say that not because of the rapping he has taken his critics, but because of his own rapping.
But that's just my opinion. Fact is, we are now Roveless.


Saving Earth - DiCaprio's 'The 11th Hour' Documentary

comment by Larry Ross
August 21, 2007

A great doco by Leo DiCaprio stocked with passion and brainpower illuminating the global environment crisis. Plus all you need to know to save this planet. But a Bush-Cheney war on Iran, would be so big, with so many horrific consequences, that any chance we might have to save our environment, will be blown away by a big new war.

Leo DiCaprio Takes Up Where Al Gore Left Off in New '11th Hour' Environmental Documentary

by Don Hazen
August 19, 2007

DiCaprio's 11th Hour is a powerful documentary that makes the case that our way of life is totally at odds with the sustainability of our planet. But the film needs the Hollywood star to draw a lot more publicity to it.
Three-time Academy Award-nominated movie star Leonardo DiCaprio and his filmmaking partners, Nadia Conners and Leila Conners Petersen, have done us a great favor. They have assembled an incredible array of passion and brainpower in their stirring documentary, The 11th Hour , to teach us just about every thing we need to know about the fate of planet Earth -- how bad things are, and what we can do to reverse the effects of humanity's rapid devastation of this planet.


Many Pressures for War On Iran

comment by Larry Ross
August 19, 2007

In the US there are many political pressures for the US to make war with Iran as the following excellent article details. It indicates that the US is closer than ever to staging provocations that can be used as a pretext and justification for war with Iran . Some of the comments that follow the article are very worthwhile and perceptive.

Cheney, Lieberman and Iran War Conspiracy

by Gareth Porter
August 16, 2007

I was never one of those who believed the Bush administration was getting ready to attack Iran in 2006 or early 2007. But it is now clear that at least Vice President Dick Cheney is conspiring to push through a specific plan for war with Iran. And Senator Joe Lieberman is an active part of that conspiracy.

  Costs Of Escalation In Iraq
comment by Larry Ross
August 17, 2007

The very useful figures that Tom Englehardt has complied are astonishing and infuriating. A tiny minority in the US, elected by fraud, and supported by the Government machinery including the Military, using deceitful techniques and lies, started wars and spent billions killing over one million Iraqis, destroyed their infrastructure, created four million refugees (2 outside Iraq and 2 inside), started a civil war, created permanent military bases More than 75, according to the New York Times.

  All-time Highs in Iraq: Escalation by the Numbers
by Tom Engelhardt
August 16, 2007

Someday, we will undoubtedly discover that, in the term "surge" -- as in the President's "surge" plan (or "new way forward") announced to the nation in January -- was the urge to avoid the language (and experience) of the Vietnam era. As there were to be no "body bags" (or cameras to film them as the dead came home), as there were to be no "body counts" ("We have made a conscious effort not to be a body-count team" was the way the President put it ), as there were to be no "quagmires," nor the need to search for that "light at the end of the tunnel," so, surely, there were to be no "escalations."

The following article will activate people to order the Poison DUst Educators Pack from the US and educate others, particularly students, about this insidious and long term threat to everyone on the planet. DU will be with us for eternity as it has a 4.4 billion year half life. The US and UK are lying when they claim it does not cause any permanent threat. Their own scientists and military warn that it is a permanent and growing threat to humanity. 
But US and UK politicians continue to order it's use extensively for their illegal wars. Informing others about DU, using this and related material, would be a very worthwhile project for any individual or group. The Christchurch branch of The Peace Foundation has a display of the horrors it is causing to the people who are exposed to DU poisoning.

Bleak Future for Americans

comment by Larry Ross
August 15, 2007

Americans will have very little choice in the next election, as the Democrats embrace the same deceptive policies as the Bush Administration.
Although the Bush republicans can be shot down in flames over their series of invented lies to justify wars in Iraq and Iran, none of the front running democrats are prepared to say so. They even say, like Bush, that they are prepared to use nuclear weapons against Iran and are constantly currying favour with the Israeli lobby. Everything about US politics is myth and pretence. Pretence and lies become truth. It is very sick and very dangerous. Anything can happen. Perhaps the only person who could now save America is Al Gore - if he runs for President.

Neolibs and Neocons, United and Interchangeable

by Philip Giraldi
August 14, 2007

When it comes to foreign policy, particularly as it relates to the Middle East, there is not a whole lot of separation between the Democratic and Republican Parties. Republicans tend to be more bellicose in their statements, but Democrats have more than made up for that with their steely resolve to take the fight to the enemy wherever he might be. Both Republicans and Democrats reflexively support Israel, and nearly all candidates are in agreement on a number of other areas, including an aggressive policy toward Iran.


The Unofficial Sequel to "An Inconvenient Truth"

by Olivia Zaleski
August 8, 2007

Recently I had the opportunity to catch a sneak preview of Leonardo Dicaprio's, The 11th Hour.
Said to be the unofficial sequel to An Inconvenient Truth, the film leaves off from an established understanding of environmental crisis and approaches the subsequent solutions humans must undertake to ensure a worthwhile future.
Following typical documentary format, the film reels vivid imagery to commentary from an impressive collection of scientists, political leaders, designers, and visionaries. Pundits range from former Soviet Prime Minister Mikhail Gorbachev to sustainable design authority William McDonough. In total, the film features 50 independent voices.


US Capitalist System Spins Out of Control

comment by Larry Ross
August 5, 2007

The US capitalist system is a sacred religion, a dogma that cannot be questioned, but is out of control and leading to global environmental destruction as Sullivan illustrates. However its offspring - the military-industrial-political complex - is also out of control, breeding wars and new arms races which threaten to destroy the world in the nearer future. The economic system and values of global humanity keep accelerating this self-destructive system. Increasingly the bulk of human resources go into preparing for, and fighting, endless wars based on lies and myths.

Why do we sell them our souls?

by Charles Sullivan
October 22, 2005

It is painfully obvious that America is a land that worships the market economy. Big money is God here. Big money is all powerful, omnipotent. All solutions, as perceived by the captains of business, therefore, must be market based. Moreover, in the moribund perceptions of the ruling elite, the market must be totally unfettered. It must exist beyond the pale of conscience, bearing no responsibility to the people, or to the earth that sustains it. It must answer only to the bottom line and reject all other input—a function that it has executed only too well.


Arctic Resource Wars?

comment by Larry Ross
August 3, 2007

In staking a claim to a large part of Arctic oil and gas reserves, Russia has fired the first shot of what may become known as Arctic Resource Wars.
The Bush Empire, willing to invent lies to justify killing for oil in the Middle East , will also pursue this new resource. Obviously a peaceful solution to opposing claims would be in the interests of all nations. But given US imperial war policies and the value of perpetual wars to the US economy and military-industrial complex, this will be viewed as an opportunity to expand the new US-Russia cold war and new nuclear arms race. That is the likely choice, rather than exploring the options for a peaceful solution.

Russian sub makes claim to resource-rich North Pole

Russian explorers dived deep below the North Pole in a submersible and planted a national flag on the seabed to stake a symbolic claim to the energy riches of the Arctic.
A mechanical arm dropped a specially made rust-proof titanium flag on to the Arctic seabed at a depth of 4261 metres under the surface, Itar-Tass news agency quoted expedition officials as saying.
Russia wants to extend right up to the North Pole the territory it controls in the Arctic, believed to hold vast reserves of untapped oil and natural gas.


Nuclear Power for NZ? No Thanks

by Larry Ross
August 2, 2007

For readers looking for pro-nuclear power arguments, Google has over 70,000 articles on this subject they may like to consider. You will also find on Google that there are 8,720,000 results for anti-nuclear power, almost 125 times as many against. . . .
. . . In our world of recurring wars, any nuclear installation can become a target. That could mean widespread radiation for centuries. It would destroy the country's agricultural export industry. That's butter, milk, meat, etc. Naturally the pro-nuclearists do not mention this factor, or play it down as unlikely, etc. in their propaganda.


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?
  Nuclear Power? An Uneconomic, Dangerous Nonsense
comment from Larry Ross
July 25, 2007

This Los Angeles Times editorial is a very good summary of the relative disadvantages of investing in nuclear power reactors, versus using much more economic and available alternatives. If you add these powerful arguments to a number of others for New Zealand , the alternative energy sources win overwhelmingly. As they say: "Tax dollars are much better spent on windmills than on cooling towers"

  A Warming World: No to Nukes
The Los Angeles Times
July 23, 2007

It's tempting to turn to nuclear plants to combat climate change, but alternatives are safer and cheaper.
Japan sees nuclear power as a solution to global warming, but it's paying a price. Last week, a magnitude 6.8 earthquake caused dozens of problems at the world's biggest nuclear plant, leading to releases of radioactive elements into the air and ocean and an indefinite shutdown. Government and company officials initially downplayed the incident and stuck to the official line that the country's nuclear plants are earthquake-proof, but they gave way in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Japan has a sordid history of serious nuclear accidents or spills followed by cover-ups.

  False Flags May Start Iran War and Bush Dictatorship
comment by Larry Ross
July 19, 2007

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.

  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.

  Sudan, the CIA and Oil
from Larry Ross
July 18, 2007

Whereas the CIA and it's interests in using Sudan as a source of intelligence for the Iraq war is featured in this article, there is not a word about the very great interest the US has in Sudan's oil. This oil interest and the policies that flow from it, are mentioned in some of the other articles on this site. The immorality and two-faced policies of the US toward Sudan and the very low priority it gives to the genocide against Darfur, indicates that Oil takes priority over the blood of men, women and children in Darfur. That the following article only mentioned the CIA spy interests and not a word about oil seems to indicate that the media prefers not to alert it's readers about this vitally important connection in the formation of US foreign policy.

  Sudan Is Secret Partner of US
by Greg Miller and Josh Meyer
June 11, 2007

Khartoum supplies information to the CIA on insurgents in Iraq.
Sudan has secretly worked with the CIA to spy on the insurgency in Iraq - an example of how the United States has continued to cooperate with the Sudanese regime even while condemning its role in the killing of tens of thousands of civilians in Darfur.
President Bush has condemned the killings in Darfur as genocide and has imposed sanctions on Sudan's government. But some critics say the administration has soft-pedaled the sanctions to preserve its extensive intelligence collaboration with Sudan.

  Oil Policies in Sudan and Genocide
from Larry Ross
July 17, 2007

The following is a number of articles dealing with global oil resources and the policies of different nations toward these resources. Of particular interest is the battle between states for control of Sudan's oil - one of the richest oil fields in Africa. At the same time the Government of Sudan is commiting genocide against the population of Darfur. That results in two-faced policies by governments wanting good relations with Sudan to get access to it's oil, while appearing to pacify human rights organizations by condemning Sudan for its genocide against the population of Darfur. As in Iraq, it seems to be the oil interests that triumph over human rights.

  Oil and Natural Gas in Conflict

"Black gold" often brings hardship and misery to the societies where it is found. Petroleum-producing countries are plagued by corrupt and authoritarian governments, lopsided and unsustainable economic development and violent conflict. Foreign powers and their huge multinational oil companies often maneuver for control of the oil fields through clandestine operations or outright military intervention. In addition, disaffected rebels challenge governments in hope of winning a share of the lucrative oil revenues.

  Drastic Climate Change But There Could Be A Solution
from Larry Ross
July 13, 2007

George Monbiot shows a scientific basis for expecting the worst consequences of global warming much sooner than expected, if we continue present trends with only token and fig leaf measures.
But he also indicates that there is a scientific basis for effective action if there is committed action by Governments and industry.
So what will happen?
It depends on aware individuals, and groups educating others, and committing themselves to campaign for the necessary measures and investments. If apathy, ignorance and short-term self interest continue to rule government decisions, humanity will go on to suffer irreversible disasters.

Reading a scientific paper on the train this weekend, I found, to my amazement, that my hands were shaking. This has never happened to me before, but nor have I ever read anything like it.

  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.

  Depression, Doomsday and Peace
by Larry Ross
July 7, 2007

Scientifically I contemplate the facts, such as:
The 9 arsenals of nuclear weapons with enough fire power to eliminate humanity many times over. Since 1945 famous people and the most informed experts have warned humanity about the nuclear arms race and the many ways it could mean sudden extinction for the human race. That's 62 years of warnings, but nuclear weapons have proliferated and criminal politicians want to use them.
That criminal minds, sociopaths and psychopaths, now control the world's greatest arsenals in the USA, UK and Israel.
... So I contemplate the race toward extinction and wonder “what can I do?”

  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.

  Bush, Mideast Wars and End-Time Prophecy
by JP Briggs II, Ph.D., and Thomas D. Williams
June 29, 2007

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.

  The Backbone of Fascism is Public Apathy
by Larry Ross
June 28, 2007

Every dictatorship depends on apathy, ignorance, confusion created by pro-dictatorship propaganda, disinterest, gullibility, criminal or and/or self-interest of its victims, and fear of reprisals by people if they openly oppose the emerging or established dictatorship. These factors are enough to silence and/or prevent most opposition. The recent Fiji military dictatorship is a good example. It was a simple military takeover, using a flimsy excuse of combating corruption.
Another emerging dictatorship is the Bush Administration. It is far more complex and sophisticated as one of its objects is to convert the world's greatest democracy into a tightly-controlled military state while never admitting what its true objectives are. It's major cover story and justification is the 9/11 attack and their response "wars on terror". So far, that simple formula has worked well, and allowed the Bush regime to achieve a formidable success. It has all the elements mentioned above.


US Using Nuclear Weapons in Iraq

comment by Larry Ross
June 23, 2007

DU weapons spread toxic radioactive dust wherever they are used. With a half life of 4 billion years, the poisonous effects are gradually spreading around the world causing death and disease. It is like a slow motion form of nuclear war against all humanity, insidiously and secretly drifting world-wide, infecting millions. The US has slyly introduced a form of nuclear weapon and then lied. They claim DU weapons are harmless. The poisonous effects may manifest years later in the form of cancer, genetic mutations in the children of exposed people and a range of other diseases.

Badges Mark Anti-Nuclear Anniversary
The Dominion Post
June 22, 2007

The original Nuclear Free New Zealand badge was designed by Larry Ross in 2002 and sent to all MPs.  A letter promoting the idea that New Zealand should declare itself a Nuclear Free Zone as an important step toward global nuclear disarmament and peace accompanied the badge and was one of many letters on this and related subjects to MPs.
"It was thrilling to see my badge worn by the Prime Minister and six of her Ministers. It is more relevant today and remains a powerful statement of support" Larry said.

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":

  The Murder Of The Innocent
comment by Larry Ross
June 20, 2007

Chris Hedges, former Middle East Bureau Chief of The New York Times, gives us valuable insights into how 'Coalition of the Willing' troops have become murderers of some 600, 000 innocent Iraqis since the US invasion in 2003. It is little wonder that the Bush regime and the Iraqi puppet government are suppressing this information. These trained murderers, disturbed, resentful, bitter and often wounded and infected with DU poisoning are returned and turned loose on US society. The costs of these damaged human beings, and their genetically damaged offspring, will be felt at many levels of American society for generations to come.


A Culture of Atrocity: U.S. Troops Feel the Effect of Prolonged Combat

by Chris Hedges, Truthdig
June 19, 2007

After four years of war, our troops in Iraq have become acclimated to atrocity. The rage that soldiers feel after a roadside bomb explodes is one that is easily directed over time to innocent civilians -- a short psychological leap, but a massive moral one.


World's Greatest Oil Consumer and Polluter

June 16, 2007

.... America has become a 'Frankenstein-of-perpetual-war' creature, created by the machinations of Bush's neocon complex. Congress, elected to stop the Iraq war and correct any Administration excesses, and crimes, has lost any will to stop any present or future planned wars. Basically it is very much under the domination of the Bush executive and ideology.


Fighting Wars for Oil to Fight Wars

by Michael T. Klare and Tom Engelhardt
June 15, 2007

Sixteen gallons of oil. That's how much the average American soldier in Iraq and Afghanistan consumes on a daily basis – either directly, through the use of Humvees, tanks, trucks, and helicopters, or indirectly, by calling in air strikes. Multiply this figure by 162,000 soldiers in Iraq, 24,000 in Afghanistan, and 30,000 in the surrounding region (including sailors aboard U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf) and you arrive at approximately 3.5 million gallons of oil: the daily petroleum tab for U.S. combat operations in the Middle East war zone.
Multiply that daily tab by 365 and you get 1.3 billion gallons: the estimated annual oil expenditure for U.S. combat operations in Southwest Asia. That's greater than the total annual oil usage of Bangladesh, population 150 million – and yet it's a gross underestimate of the Pentagon's wartime consumption.

Phil Goff Warns of Nuclear Holocaust
comment by Larry Ross
June 9, 2007

Phil Goff's warning to the 20th anniversary meeting in Christchurch June 9 of NZ's nuclear free zone is 100% correct. World survival is threatened by 27,000 nuclear weapons, some on 'hair-trigger' ready-to-launch status and a total of 8 nuclear weapon nations. At any time the world can be destroyed "by nuclear accident, miscalculation or deliberate act of madness" as President Kennedy warned at the UN in 1963. Even worse are new US nuclear weapons and new doctrines allowing the President to wage pre-emptive nuclear war, and also introduce nuclear weapons use into any conflict. This massive threat means everyone should be worried and active helping to stop this nuclear madness. New Zealand 's nuclear free law is more relevant today as Phil Goff says, than in 1984.

New Zealand politicians stoke anti-nuclear activism
Asia-Pacific News
June 9, 2007

Wellington - On the 20th anniversary of New Zealand's anti-nuclear legislation, the country's politicians have called for a southern hemisphere wide nuclear-free zone and for an end to investment in nuclear weapons, according to statements Saturday.
The New Zealand Nuclear Free Zone, Disarmament, and Arms Control Act was passed on June 8, 1987. It resulted in the country being suspended from the Anzus (Australia, New Zealand and Australia) defence pact with the US and Australia.
But Trade and Disarmament Minister Phil Goff told a forum in the South Island city of Christchurch that he wanted the whole of the southern hemisphere to become a nuclear-free zone within 20 years. He also criticized nations' complacency.
'The threat to the world of nuclear weapons grows as more countries acquire possession of them... With the world having lived with nuclear weapons for over sixty years, a key challenge today is international complacency about the threat they pose,' he said in a statement.
A co-leader of New Zealand's left-wing Green party, which is in the government coalition, also demanded the country withdraw NZ$30 million of taxpayer investment in companies involved in nuclear weapons production.

  Republicans Say Nuclear Bomb Iran
comment by Larry Ross
June 8, 2007

Only one Republican Presidential candidate, Ron Paul, argues against nuclear bombing of Iran. All others accept Bush lies about Iran and therefore the possible need to nuclear bomb Iran to prevent it from making nuclear weapons.
The Democrats are not much better. They accept Bush's Iran lies including the alleged need to possibly nuclear bomb Iran but they want to talk first to see if Iran will capitulate to US demands.

  Is Bush Leading US to Nuclear War?
comment by Larry Ross
June 6, 2007

Hartung and Berrigan document that Bush is increasing nuclear weapon expenditures, and developing nuclear war-fighting doctrines and new nuclear weapons while he portrays his chosen target (Iran) as being a nuclear threat. But Iran is within the NPT agreements by enriching uranium to power Iran's nuclear reactors.
Again Bush is lying to lay the groundwork and justification for war with Iran, as he did in preparation for his war with Iraq. The authors have assembled an impressive array of facts in the following article which supports this.


Is Bush Leading Us to Nuclear War?

by William D. Hartung and Frida Berrigan
May 23, 2007

Only days before the fifth anniversary of September 11, President George W. Bush addressed military officers in Washington to warn that nuclear-armed terrorists could "blackmail the free world and spread their ideologies of hate and raise a moral threat to America."
This alarmist vision was accompanied by the White House's release of "A National Strategy for Combating Terrorism," which painted a picture of a "troubling potential WMD terrorism nexus emanating from Tehran." The administration is building the case for war against Iran - a job made easier by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's recent announcement that Iran can now enrich uranium on an industrial scale - despite the fact that many Iran-watchers and nuclear experts consider their claims of enrichment capacity to be an overblown boast.


If You Think Bush Is Evil Now, Wait Until He Nukes Iran

by Paul Craig Roberts
June 6, 2007

The war in Iraq is lost. This fact is widely recognized by American military officers and has been recently expressed forcefully by Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, the commander of U.S. forces in Iraq during the first year of the attempted occupation. Winning is no longer an option. Our best hope, Sanchez says, is "to stave off defeat," and that requires more intelligence and leadership than Sanchez sees in the entirety of our national political leadership: "I am absolutely convinced that America has a crisis in leadership at this time."

  NZ Not Only 'Clean and Green'
comment by Larry Ross
June 5, 2007

New Zealand's slogan should be "NZ Clean Green and Nuclear Free". The NZ nuclear free reputation sells NZ tourism and our nuclear radiation-free agricultural products.
The reason for including our nuclear free status is that if NZ becomes contaminated with nuclear radiation our agricultural industries and economy could suffer a mortal blow.

  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.

  Al Gore: Drive for Global Domination Puts US in Greater Danger
comment by Larry Ross
May 26, 2007

This is a great speech by Al Gore who won the popular vote for US President in 2,000 and should have been declared President.
There would have been no Iraq war, and no plans for war on Iran or other states. The terrorist threat would have been dealt with in far different and much more effective ways by co-operating with other governments, and their police to catch and punish the genuine terrorists. The enormously wasteful war expenditures would be non-existent. There would be no threat to the American people or Constitution from a power-mad Administration taking away American civil liberties while it is "trying to impose global domination" according to Al Gore.
I think if Gore ran for President in 2008, he would win many more votes than in 2000 and end up as US President. No other acceptable Democratic candidate could expect to come close to the majority Gore would get.

  A Drive for Global Domination Has Put Us in Greater Danger
by Al Gore
May 24, 2007

Moral authority, which is our greatest source of strength, has been recklessly put at risk by this wilful president.
The pursuit of "dominance" in foreign policy led the Bush administration to ignore the UN, to do serious damage to our most important alliances, to violate international law, and to cultivate the hatred and contempt of many in the rest of the world. The seductive appeal of exercising unconstrained unilateral power led this president to interpret his powers under the constitution in a way that brought to life the worst nightmare of the founders. Any policy based on domination of the rest of the world not only creates enemies for the US and recruits for al-Qaida, but also undermines the international cooperation that is essential to defeating terrorists who wish to harm and intimidate America. Instead of "dominance", we should be seeking pre-eminence in a world where nations respect us and seek to follow our leadership and adopt our values.

by Jim Sleeper
May 23, 2007

Lots of former Bush boosters have been in damage-control mode ever since the spotlights of "shock and awe" that they focused on Iraqis and American liberals began turning back on them. Some even associate themselves retroactively with the early war skepticism and genuine contrition of William F. Buckley Jr., who wrote recently, "If I knew then what I know now about what kind of situation we would be in, I would have opposed the [Iraq] war."

  Arms Race To Extinction
comment by Larry Ross
May 22, 2007

Here are some valuable facts about the US defence expenditures and the rising US arms trade. As Frida Berrigan points out "The US alone spends what the rest of the world combined devotes to military expenditures"
What is the US defence budget? Is it only the $481 billion requested by the Whitehouse? Or should other defence costs be added to this total in order to give a more balanced picture? Such added costs as the US nuclear weapons program -$17 billion. Iraq and Afghanistan wars $ 142 billion. Miscellaneous defence costs $5 billion. Grand total of $647 billion. If you add more invisible costs such as cost impact of Iraq war on global oil prices and lowered consumption of US goods and services by people in other nations, and long-term health care for wounded US veterans the price can rise to between 1 trillion and $2.2 trillion.

comment by Larry Ross
May 18, 2007

Chalmers Johnson is an eminent US historian and gives us a comprehensive look at the American Empire today. In any kind of a normal world run by normal human beings with some established values and standards, the present disastrous trends would continue. Bush and his Republicans would be overwhelmingly voted out of office in 2008. But this is not a normal world and the Bush regime is run by people with few or no values and standards.

by Chalmers Johnson
May 18, 2007

I According to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll , released on April 26, 2007, some 78% of Americans believe their country to be headed in the wrong direction. Only 22% think the Bush administration's policies make sense, the lowest number on this question since October 1992, when George H. W. Bush was running for a second term -- and lost. What people don't agree on are the reasons for their doubts and, above all, what the remedy -- or remedies -- ought to be.

April 30, 2007

A future generation if there is one, and if US democracy ever returns, people will marvel at how easy it was for a small dedicated group of neocons to steal 2 presidential elections and fool and terrify Americans into giving up their democracy and embracing a military dictatorship. It's an amazing but very sad story for the whole human race. Everyone in the world will experience the disastrous consequences. The following article describes how the stage has been set. All that is required is a new Bush war, such as the planned war on Iran.

  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.

All that is needed as Brzezinski warned is "a staged provocation in Iraq or a false flag terror attack within the US". Given these dire warnings about something that could spiral into a World War III or endless wider wars with disastrous horrific consequences, why do people seem so unconcerned?

  Brzezinski Suggests False Flag Event Could Kick-Start Iran War

Former National Security Advisor and founding member of the Trilateral Commission Zbigniew Brzezinski tacitly warned a Senate Foreign Relations Committee last week that an attack on Iran could be launched following a staged provocation in Iraq or a false flag terror attack within the U.S. ...
... Brzezinski was careful to highlight the word "defensive" as if to discount its credibility, suggesting that the Bush White House itself would be behind the attack or provocation and subsequently use it as a pretext for war.

  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.

Several miles long, the island was once thought to be the tip of a peninsula halfway up Greenland's remote east coast but a glacier joining it to the mainland has melted away completely, leaving it surrounded by sea.

Donna Thorne writes below, a penetrating analysis with warnings about Bush's imposition of a police state on Americans in the name of protecting US freedom and democracy.
More Americans now believe that their democratic America has come under the control of a criminal conspiracy, with a genius for persuading people that 'black is white' - 'war is peace' and 'self-imposed slavery today will guarantee freedom tomorrow'. In short George Orwell's book "1984" has come to full flower in the USA today.

In this era of perpetual warfare, escalating domestic tyranny, government-sanctioned torture, and a Nazi-like pursuit of Middle-East domination, one would expect, at the very least, an audible outcry from the People who proclaim resolute devotion to the ideals of liberty and justice for all. Yet for the most part, Mainstream America continues to assume a posture of apathy, bitterness, or eery silence.

  Physicists Warn Bush Not To Use Nuclear Weapons against Iran
by Larry Ross
April 22, 2007

The Physicists letter, although published in 2006, deserves more consideration. These are the experts who created the bomb and warn of the dire consequences of its use.
If nuclear weapons are used against Iran, there is a danger of an escalation to global war and the use of the 8-9 nuclear weapon arsenals.
There are enough nuclear weapons to equal 200,000 times the power of the Hiroshima bomb. Potentially that is enough to kill 200 billion people.
That's a huge overkill potential, as there are only 6 billion people on the planet. But still governments are spending huge sums to create and refine a variety of evermore powerful nuclear and hydrogen weapons, and now space weapons. Where and when does it end?

  Manufacturing War Propaganda 
comment by Larry Ross
April 21, 2007

Tom Engelhardt presents a very useful record of Bush Administration changing propaganda during the 4 year war on Iraq.  However he omits to mention the vital and ominous new element in Bush propaganda. That is the blaming of Iran for helping and arming 'the terrorists in Iraq'. Bush is desperately looking for a scapegoat to blame for his Iraq quagmire and Iran is it.  Iran is Bush's ultimate war target. He is demonising Iran as well as blaming Iran for causing the failure of his illegal war on Iraq. This will give him the invented excuses he needs to justify a war on Iran. Most of Congress and the US public now believe that Iran is a nuclear threat to the US, as they believed Iraq was a nuclear threat before Bush started a war against this country in 2003. They have a very short memory span in the US, and it's getting shorter. So it is easy for the Bush regime to fool them repeatedly with the same kind of lies. Engelhardt shows how Bush tries to wipe the public's 'memory slate' clean each time he invents new terminology to cover his failures in Iraq.

  The Devil's Dictionary of War in Iraq: Words to Die For ... or a New Dawn in Baghdad?
by Tom Engelhardt
April 17, 2007

... Like all wars, the "war in Iraq" or "Iraq war" -- it's never gained the double caps of the Korean or Vietnam Wars -- has also been a war of words. From "homeland" and "unlawful combatant" to "extraordinary rendition" and "Global War on Terror" (aka: World War IV or the Long War), never has an administration reached more often for its dictionaries to create pretzled words and phrases. Its war in Iraq has been no exception. But recently there's been a change, hardly noticed by anyone. The administration's familiar war vocabulary and imagery, which hung in there so remarkably long, has finally disappeared down the memory hole. So many images, tailored for home-front consumption, each meant to help give just a little more time to an increasingly embattled administration, have in recent months disappeared.

  US Starts New Arms Race in Europe
by Larry Ross
April 18, 2007

Placing US anti-missile defence systems in European countries is a multi-message to Russia, and another indication that the US is restarting the international arms race and a new cold war. If the US launches a pre-emptive nuclear war on Iran, as much expert testimony indicates, and it looks like it may go global, they may implement global pre-emptive nuclear strikes against some other nuclear weapon states. Bush, as Commander In Chief of US military forces, has the legal right (made law by Congress) to launch pre-emptive nuclear war. He may also introduce nuclear weapons into conventional weapon wars.

... It all sounds like the speech made by Colin Powell during his tenure as U.S. Secretary of State at a meeting of the U.N. General Assembly.

The upshot of all that is well known: Such weapons were never found anywhere in Mesopotamia.

  Germany Wants US Missile Defence For Europe
by Larry Ross
April 18, 2007

Here is a UPI article that shows German enthusiasm for a US missile defence system. As might be expected, the German conservatives welcome a new arms race and cold war in Europe. By embracing Bush's and the media lies about an alleged threat from Iran, they have the flimsy excuse. In the short term they may hope for new opportunities for profits. In the long run it can lead to crippling wars, if not nuclear war. I would think that the lessons of history and the potential for far greater wars than World War II, would have taught the Germans some useful lessons. Apparently not.

This article by Gorbachev is the most comprehensive article on the subject of US attempts to sell missile defence to European countries. I am amazed that they seem to be buying this expensive and dangerous fraud. It means less independence for Europe, huge expenditure,  more US domination and agenda, and an increase in the likelihood of crippling wars. How could Europeans accept American lies and propaganda and do such a self-destructive act as install missile defence systems? It makes no sense particularly after they have had the example of US lying to justify their illegal war on Iraq with over 600,000 people killed

Iraq May Be the Greatest Crisis of Modern Times

Comment by Larry Rosss
April 13, 2007

All I can say about Pilger's article "Iraq May Be The Greatest Crisis of Modern Times" is Amen, how right he is. Let us hope that Pilger will cut through public apathy and awaken people who so far, have refused to be concerned. Just about everyone in the developed countries march happily and deliberately unaware, toward Bush's final Armageddon death camps, denying the unthinkable reality with every step.
So did the Jews, as they marched into Hitler's death camps. Most Jews just couldn't believe that they and their families were to become victims of the most diabolical evil ever conceived by man. It is the same today, but the reality is well-camouflaged because we are still able to continue life as usual - for the moment.

  Iran may be the greatest crisis of modern times
by John Pilger
April 12, 2007

In a cover piece for the New Statesman, John Pilger evokes the memory of Germans 'looking from the side' at Bergen-Belsen to describe the challenge facing us in the West as the Bush/Blair 'long war' becomes 'perhaps the greatest crisis of modern times'.
.... And yet there is a surreal silence, save for the noise of “news” in which our powerful broadcasters gesture cryptically at the obvious but dare not make sense of it, lest the one-way moral screen erected between us and the consequences of an imperial foreign policy collapse and the truth be revealed. John Bolton, formerly Bush's man at the United Nations, recently spelled out the truth: that the Bush-Cheney-Blair plan for the Middle East is an agenda to maintain division and instability. In other words, bloodshed and chaos equals control. He was referring to Iraq, but he also meant Iran.

by Larry Ross
April 9, 2007

.... My own observation is that the US mass media hardly ever mentions the danger of nuclear weapons anymore. The media are inferring that new US nuclear policies are perfectly normal and acceptable, so people seem to accept them. These are that the US can use nuclear weapons in conventional war situations and that the President may wage a pre-emptive nuclear war against any nation on any flimsy grounds he may supply.

While Oscar-winning presumptive president Al Gore was still a congressman from Tennessee, and voting on what was then the largest military buildup in history, Caldicott was warning of the risks posed by both the nuclear arms race being orchestrated by the Reagan administration and the continued use of commercial nuclear power in communities around the United States.

April 7, 2007

Noam Chomsky gives an excellent analysis of the crisis, and how the US is building up fake accusations and justifications for war with Iran as it did to make war on Iraq in 2003.
He then offers a brilliant analysis of logical steps toward peace which would be supported by world public opinion as indicated in public opinion polls.
But I doubt if this brilliant solution will be allowed by those who control the power to wage wars and thereby destroy our world. They are on a collision course with Iran in pursuit of their vision of global domination, including control of the world's oil resources.

  Chomsky: Preventing War with Iran
by Noam Chomsky
April 6, 2007

... The results of an attack on Iran could be horrendous. After all, according to a recent study of "the Iraq effect" by terrorism specialists Peter Bergen and Paul Cruickshank, using government and Rand Corporation data, the Iraq invasion has already led to a seven-fold increase in terror. The "Iran effect" would probably be far more severe and long-lasting. British military historian Corelli Barnett speaks for many when he warns that "an attack on Iran would effectively launch World War III."

  Climate Change And Bush's Illegal Wars
by Larry Ross
April 6, 2007

The following collection of articles show that the climate crisis has become a very important in the US and around the world.
But no thought seems to have been given to removing the basic blockages to effective remedial action to halt or reverse global warming. The Bush regime is engaged in draining the resources of the US to wage meaningless imperial wars to expand their empire. First Afghanistan, then Iraq and perhaps soon a much larger war against Iran. The cost and drain of US resources, and primary occupation of its military-industrial culture, is on their wars. The pollution of the environment by wars and preparing for war is criminal. Not only the massive poisoning of the Iraqi environment with Depleted Uranium weapons, or Agent Orange in Vietnam but the consuming of large amounts of fossil fuel to power their air raids, tanks and other military vehicles.

So many factors threaten human existence. ....

  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.

  HAARP - A Weather Control Weapon
by Larry Ross
March 30, 2007

If "the US can own the weather" as stated in the US Air Force report, it could presumably generate destructive weather events.
These might be used on nations chosen as enemies, or nations the US might wish to punish in order to bring them into line and to see things the way the US wants them to. Will such events be obviously HAARP generated? Or will they appear to be one of the consequences of global warming? If the latter, then the US could inflict severe deprivation and disaster on a nation without being known to be the aggressor. It remains to be seen whether this new evidence of human evil will ever be developed and used.

by Larry Ross
March 29, 2007

Professor Griffin's new book "Debunking 9/11 Debunking" meticulously dissects the flaws in Bush's official story about the 9/11 attacks in 2001.
Paul Craig Roberts gives a splendid review of it below and agrees with its findings. But the implications that the Official Story of the 9/11 attacks was basically a collection of lies and myths is not examined in detail in this article. However the appalling conclusions and implications must be made.

  9/11 and the Evidence
by Paul Craig Roberts
March 27, 2007

The 9/11 attack has been used to start wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, to plan an attack on Iran, to curtail constitutional protections and civil liberties in the US, to radically expand US military budgets and the power of the executive, and to enrich entrenched vested interests.
Professor David Ray Griffin is the nemesis of the official 9/11 conspiracy theory.  In his latest book, Debunking 9/11 Debunking, Griffin destroys the credibility of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Popular Mechanics reports, annihilates his critics, and proves himself to be a better scientist and engineer than the defenders of the official story.

  Is the American Empire on the Brink of Collapse?
by Mark Karlin
March 24, 2007

I believe that we're close to a tipping point right now. What happened to the Soviet Union between 1989 and 1991 could easily be happening to us for essentially the same reasons. Imperial overreach, inability to reform, rigid economic ideology. ... The world's balance of power didn't change one iota on September 11, 2001. The only way we could lose the power and influence we had at that time was through our own actions, and that's what we did. -- Chalmers Johnson, author of Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic
Has our "leadership" traded democracy for empire? Have their over-bloated egos convinced them that they are the world's newly crowned colonial kings? Author Chalmers Johnson is certainly not given to wearing rose-colored glasses. As he concludes in his newest book, Nemesis: "... my country is launched on a dangerous path that it must abandon or else face the consequences."

  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.

SCOTLAND will fail to meet an international deadline to stop the alarming decline of its wildlife, a report seen by The Scotsman warns. Up to 60 per cent of the nation's species could be in decline, raising fears the country is facing a future eco-system collapse.
Among those most at risk of extinction are the great crested newt, the red squirrel, the common skate, the black grouse and juniper, according to the report by some of the country's leading environmental groups. Now those same groups are calling for a renewed effort to insure the demise of some of the country's rarest species is reversed.

by Larry Ross
March 14, 2007

I wonder why top politicians in the US and other countries, top military people, government executives and ordinary informed citizens, don't speak out and take action before it's too late, to Impeach Bush before he starts a new war that could easily escalate and destroy our world. The only chance to do something constructive to prevent this disaster is before Bush starts it. That's now.
Once started, it's too late. No turning the clock back. The war momentum will take over then and a series of devastating disasters will rapidly follow.

Top House Democrats retreated Monday from an attempt to limit President Bush's authority for taking military action against Iran as the leadership concentrated on a looming confrontation with the White House over the Iraq war.
Officials said Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other members of the leadership had decided to strip from a major military spending bill a requirement for Bush to gain approval from Congress before moving against Iran.
Conservative Democrats as well as lawmakers concerned about the possible impact on Israel had argued for the change in strategy.

by Larry Ross

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.

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.

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.

  War Preparations Complete for Sudden US Strike On Iran
Comment by Larry Ross
February 22, 2007

Dan Plesh is an author, anti-war researcher and journalist. He establishes that the US is planning sudden attacks on some 10,000 Iranian targets with conventional or nuclear weapons. It is not just the Iranian nuclear enrichment facilities that will be targeted, but the entire society of some 50 million people and the nations infrastructure. The Bush regime is an extreme, fanatical rogue group, that may far exceed the human butchery of all previous tyrants in history. Casualties could be in the millions, with escalation to a widening series of wars against Islamic states.

February 19, 2007

American military operations for a major conventional war with Iran could be implemented any day. They extend far beyond targeting suspect WMD facilities and will enable President Bush to destroy Iran's military, political and economic infrastructure overnight using conventional weapons.
British military sources told the New Statesman , on condition of anonymity, that "the US military switched its whole focus to Iran" as soon as Saddam Hussein was kicked out of Baghdad. It continued this strategy, even though it had American infantry bogged down in fighting the insurgency in Iraq.

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.

  What Nuclear War Means
Comment by Larry Ross

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.

  Agent Orange on Vietnam Like DU on Iraq
Comment by Larry Ross

The US dropped thousands of tons of Agent Orange on Vietnam during the war in the 1960's, contaminating the land and people - killing and deforming some 4 million of the Vietnamese population that continues today - some 40 years later. Thousands of US and allied veterans were also contaminated with exposure to agent orange sprays, causing disease, disabilities and early deaths for many vets, genetic mutation that goes into their children and generations to come.

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?

"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.

It is a great idea from a great US historian, that the people should hold Bush impeachment hearings all across America. Will it happen? The Democrats are too deeply involved in echoing Bush's lies, and with the Israeli and arms trade lobbies to offer much more than platitudes of token opposition. I think people should try but I doubt if there would be sufficient support in time to stop Bush's war on Iran. There could be as little as two months left.
 It would take a massive campaign and I know various organisations are working for this now. So any help people can offer, now is the time to exert effort to prevent a doomsday war. If Bush begins his war, I think it may be too late to impeach him. So now is the time for any effective action.

Comment by Larry Ross
January 25, 2007

Russian Ex-Chief of Defence, General Ivashov's analysis is very similar to many articles on our website and in my comments. I think it is one of the most informed professional analysis so far of US intentions to nuclear bomb Iran. He even refers to a pretext or what many have referred to as a "False Flag" incident to get the Senate and Congress to give their approval for a nuclear attack on Iran. The article should convince people that now is the time to take action if they wish to prevent a US nuclear attack on Iran and all the disastrous consequences that can follow. I can't see any effective action or purpose in protest after such an attack when casualties are already in the millions with perhaps many more to come.

In the overall flow of information coming from the Middle East, there are increasingly frequent reports indicating that within several months from now the US will deliver nuclear strikes on Iran. For example, citing well-informed but undisclosed sources, the Kuwaiti Arab Times wrote that the US plans to launch a missile and bomb attack on the territory of Iran before the end of April, 2007. The campaign will start from the sea and will be supported by the Patriot missile defense systems in order to let the US forces avoid a ground operation and to reduce the efficiency of the return strike by “any Persian Gulf country”.

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.....

  Unthinkable War on Iran
Comment by Larry Ross
January 22, 2007

The twilight period of American democracy is now, when various steps, such as impeachment proceedings could still be successful.
There really is precious little time left for people to still exercise their freedoms and preferences.
I hope the dead hand of apathy ends soon, before our children's future is destroyed.

  The Unthinkable: The US- Israeli Nuclear War on Iran
by Michel Chossudovsky
January 21, 2007

The World is at the crossroads of the most serious crisis in modern history. The US has embarked on a military adventure, "a long war", which threatens the future of humanity.
At no point since the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6th, 1945, has humanity been closer to the unthinkable, a nuclear holocaust which could potentially spread, in terms of radioactive fallout, over a large part of the Middle East.
There is mounting evidence that the Bush Administration in liaison with Israel and NATO is planning the launching of a nuclear war against Iran, ironically, in retaliation for its nonexistent nuclear weapons program. The US-Israeli military operation is said to be in "an advanced state of readiness".

  Bush Empire of the Dead and Dying
Comment by Larry Ross
January 22, 2007

A number of articles on our site under "Dangers of Fundamentalism" and many others available in various Google searches show the strong influence of "End Times" and other Fundamentalist beliefs on George Bush's policies toward the middle east, and Iran in particular. We know from many other sources that Bush is planning a nuclear war against Iran by April 2007, and that this may well escalate into a nuclear Armageddon, as prophesied in the Bible and desperately wanted by the Christian Zionists below. More rational people who do not want an Armageddon, only have a very limited time to use their freedoms to try and stop Bush.

  As Bush's War Strategy Shifts to Iran, Christian Zionists Gear Up for the Apocalypse
by Sarah Posner, AlterNet
January 18, 2007

Christian Zionists are dancing the hora in San Antonio . Armageddon appears to be at hand.
As George W. Bush sets his sights on Iran, even Republicans are wondering how to constitutionally contain the trigger-happy king. But for an influential group of Christian fundamentalists -- White House allies that garner not only feel-good meetings with the President's liaisons to the "faith-based" community but also serious discussions with Bush's national security staff -- an attack on Iran is just what God ordered.

  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
January 20 , 2007
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.

  51% of Americans Say "Impeach Bush"
Comment by Larry Ross
January 19, 2007

Only impeaching Bush may actually stop his war plans, or taking other immediate actions that can help stop him now, before it's too late.
That has a chance of being effective.
Just think how you would feel if you have done nothing to stop and/or impeach Bush in time, but you know you actually could have done so, or at least donated funds to help groups and individuals dedicated to stop the Bush War Juggernaut. In other words you could have done something, but decided not to bother.
Think of the human family, your children and grandchildren and the kind of world Bush will create for them if people let him continue.
Your protest and anger after Bush launches his war on Iran will be too late.

  If Beale Street Could Talk - Part 2
by David Swanson
January 16, 2007

By any serious standard of journalism, impeachment should be in the news right now. This illustrates the worst problem with our media. It's not how they cover stories. It's how they do not cover stories.
A Newsweek poll a while back said that 51 percent of Americans want Bush impeached and 44 percent do not. That's about double the support there was for impeaching Clinton when it was in the news every single day.

  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.

  Planned Attack on Iran: Bush Will Expand War Before Blair Resigns
by Michael Carmichael

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.

  The Dangers of a US-Israeli Nuclear Attack on Iran

The Pentagon has blurred the distinction between conventional battlefield weapons & nuclear bombs. The nuclear bunker buster bomb is presented as an instrument of peace-making & regime change, which will enhance global security.

  The U.S.-Iran-Iraq-Israeli-Syrian War
by Robert Parry
January 15, 2007

At a not-for-quotation pre-speech briefing on Jan. 10, George W. Bush and his top national security aides unnerved network anchors and other senior news executives with suggestions that a major confrontation with Iran is looming.
Commenting about the briefing on MSNBC after Bush's nationwide address, NBC's Washington bureau chief Tim Russert said “there's a strong sense in the upper echelons of the White House that Iran is going to surface relatively quickly as a major issue – in the country and the world – in a very acute way.”

  War With Iran Immanent Says Roberts
Comment by Larry Ross
January 15, 2007

Paul Craig Roberts is one of our best commentators on what Bush and his neocons are really doing. The following is another top article, and well-documented as usual. Once again war with Iran is predicted with the US using nuclear weapons. I urge you to read this article and consider the consequences, which can have a devastating effect on the world.

  Bush's War Heating Up—Attack on Iran Imminent
by Paul Craig Roberts
January 7, 2007

Most Americans believe that Bush's Iraqi misadventure is over. The occupation has lost the support of the electorate, the Congress, the generals and the troops. The Democrats are sitting back waiting for Bush to come to terms with reality. They don't want to be accused of losing the war by forcing Bush out of Iraq. There are no more troops to commit, and when the "surge" fails, Bush will have no recourse but to withdraw. A little longer, everyone figures, and the senseless killing will be over.

  Help Stop War On Iran
Comment by Larry Ross
January 15, 2007

The "Stop War On Iran" organisation has summarised the Iran crisis below, and that Iran has no nuclear weapons, or program to build them, and has never initiated a war on any other state for the last 250 years. Therefore to portray it as a dire threat, because it is exercising it's legal right under the NPT to enrich uranium for peaceful purposes, is utter nonsense, and a cover for the planned US and Israeli attacks. It is even more ominous that the EU and UN have succumbed to US pressures and issued sanctions and warnings to Iran to give up it's nuclear enrichment program or else!
This situation is particularly ridiculous, when you know there are nine other nuclear weapon states, including Israel, which has some 200-400 nuclear weapons, and has a record of initiating wars and military attacks. The Iran crisis is a re-enactment of the pre-war Iraq crisis - using the same type of lies and false and twisted accusations as the US used before their illegal assault and occupation of Iraq, killing 655,000 Iraqis, and now a 'surge', or escalation, in their continuing massacre. How can Iran be a threat to the US, Israel or their allies, when they have many thousands of nuclear weapons and Iran has none?
  Israel Has Job of Nuclear Attack on Iran
Comment by Larry Ross
January 11, 2007

Israel has been given the job of attacking Iran with nuclear weapons because the mid-term elections ruled out the US doing what they had been planning to do for the last 2 years, according to this article by Michael Carmichael. Israel is the sacred cow of US politics that few dare criticize. Israel can invoke fears of another holocaust in order to gain public sympathy and dampen down criticism if they use nuclear weapons.

  Israel Has Job of Nuclear Attack on Iran
by Michael Carmichael
January 8, 2007

In the early 1990s, one of America's premiere journalists, Seymour Hersh, published a best-selling book, The Samson Option, detailing Mr Vanunu's testimony and a great deal of new information about Israel's vaunted nuclear defense capability.
While the vast majority of the peoples of the earth have known about Israel's nuclear arsenal since 1986, many Americans still do not accept the existence of WMDs under the direct control of the Israeli defense establishment. In the mid-1990s, Michael Moore - not known for his conservatism nor his reflexive support of Israel - made disparaging remarks during an interview that touched on the existence of the Israeli nuclear arsenal, because he was obviously oblivious to either Mordechai Vanunu's testimony or Mr Hersh's bestselling book.

  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.

  Bush's Rush to Armageddon
by Robert Parry
January 8, 2007

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.

  People Can Make A Difference
Comment by Larry Ross
January 9, 2007

Al Gore believes people can make a difference as the following article shows. He has demonstrated that this can be true with his film "An Inconvenient Truth" and his global efforts to publicize this issue. The people also made a difference in New Zealand by their multi-faceted campaign to declare New Zealand a nuclear free zone. David Lange judged this to be a vote winner, so he jumped on the band wagon in 1984 when he said "elect Labour and we'll make the whole country nuclear free". And so it happened, Labour was elected and made New Zealand  nuclear free.
That was in New Zealand in 1984.  But does this technique of effecting social change work in the USA under Bushism?

  Gore Mobilizes Global Warming Activists
by Anne Paine
January 8, 2007

Hundreds of volunteers from across the country have flocked to Nashville this fall and winter and more are here today as part of a grass-roots training effort to spread the word on global warming.
They are taking part in Al Gore's The Climate Project, which mushroomed from his documentary, An Inconvenient Truth.
The goal had been to train 1,000 "presenters" to show slides of melting glaciers and charts of climbing temperatures, but many more have wanted in.

  US Preparing Second Genocide for Iran
Comment by Larry Ross
January 8, 2007

It will be a huge mess spiralling upward and out of control. A general nuclear war that destroys all life cannot be ruled out....
...The American people and Democrats have not been forewarned about 'False Flags' and how Bush may use one to deceive them. Many believe he has already successfully used this technique, been believed, and then gone on to squander billions on illegal wars.
They are apt to believe the deception, and back Bushes action to use nuclear weapons to attack Iran , or at least quietly accept it, as they have accepted his previous lies and crimes. As with leading Democrats like Hillary Clinton, many accept and still repeat his Iraq war lies.

  The Surge: Political Cover or Escalation?
by Paul Craig Roberts
January 6, 2007

The new year began on the hopeful note that Bush's illegal war in Iraq would soon be ended. The repudiation of Bush and the Republicans in the November congressional election, the Iraq Study Group's unanimous conclusion that the US needs to remove its troops from the sectarian strife Bush set in motion by invading Iraq, Donald Rumsfeld's removal as defense secretary and his replacement by Iraqi Study Group member Robert Gates, the thumbs down given by America's top military commanders to the neoconservatives' plan to send more US troops to Iraq, and new polls of the US military that reveal that only a minority supports Bush's Iraq policy, thus giving new meaning to “support the troops,” are all indications that Americans have shed the stupor that has given carte blanche to George W. Bush.
