  US Analyst Predicts Another US-Staged 9/11 To Justify War On Iran
March 30, 2007

Heather Wokusch, M.A. in Clinical Psychology, is an educator, journalist and writes extensively on US political developments, wars and nuclear issues.
Her following article has similar conclusions to mine and other writers on the preliminary strategies the US is likely to use to justify its War On Iran.
All the indications are that the US will soon massively strike Iran, including the probable use of nuclear weapons.

  Easter Surprise: Attack on Iran, New 9/11… or Worse
by Heather Wokusch
March 29, 2007

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

  Best Analysis of American Empire
Comment by Larry Ross
March 7, 2007

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

  Chalmers Johnson: "Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic"
Interview by Amy Goodman
February 27, 2007

In his new book, CIA analyst, distinguished scholar, and best-selling author Chalmers Johnson argues that US military and economic overreach may actually lead to the nation's collapse as a constitutional republic. It's the last volume in his Blowback trilogy, following the best-selling "Blowback" and "The Sorrows of Empire." In those two, Johnson argued American clandestine and military activity has led to un-intended, but direct disaster here in the United States. [includes rush transcript]

  Will America Face the Truth About 9/11?
Comment by Larry Ross
February 25, 2007

Many Americans who look into 9/11 questions may be terrified at the thought that a criminal conspiracy has taken over control of America, that the US military has been part of the conspiracy and cover up, and that it controls the worlds biggest nuclear arsenal - enough weapons to kill all life on earth many times over. It is not surprising that many will choose to disbelieve the story, regardless of proofs, or place it in the 'too hard' basket.

  Will America Face the Truth About 9/11?
Mark H. Gaffney  ICH
February 19, 2007

. . . Side by side, the two documents are almost identical. But there is one difference. The new order includes an extra passage in the policy section that mentions two new kinds of airborne vehicles, “unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)” and “remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).” The order states that these are to be regarded as “a potential threat to public safety.” But why did two new categories of aerial vehicles require the drafting of a new order, especially since the basic policy did not change? I puzzled over this for some time, until I stumbled upon a news story about the Global Hawk, prompting further investigations. These have convinced me that the June 1, 2001 pentagon order could be one of the keys to what happened on 9/11.

  US Exposes Plans to Militarise Space
Comment by Larry Ross
December 26, 2006

By being the only country to vote "no" at the UN to a resolution to ban weapons in space, the US formally exposes its plans to militarise space. It does not want any legal encumbrances such as the following no weapons in space resolutions.

  UN Vote on Space Resolutions - US against, US alone
Correction on UN Space Vote Report
December 26, 2006

Dear Friends,
There was an error in the report I sent out from the UN about the vote on the two space resolutions.  Cote D'Ivoire and Israel abstained on the Paros resolution to Prevent an Arms Race in Outer Space, while the US was the only country to vote 'No' on A/C.1/61/L.10/Rev 1. .  166 countries voted to prevent an arms race in outer space.  In the second resolution, A/C.1/61/L36, on Transparency and Confidence building Measures in Outer Space, there was only 1 vote against it from the US and one abstention from Israel .  167 nations vote for it.  I've corrected the report below.  Alice    Full Report

  Bush's Grandiose Religious Delusions
Comment by Larry Ross
December 15, 2006

On a hunch I Googled "Bush religious delusions" and struck a gold mine of over a million articles. I hope others in addition to myself have the time and interest to brose and research this material. More specialist searching may reveal even more. It looks very promising. There may be valuable theories to explain Bush's messianic and destructive behaviour as he leads the world toward the brink. Good hunting.

  U.S. Domination of Space
Comment by Larry Ross
November 23, 2006

The military use of space is part of the  U.S. plan to be able to wage war in space or anywhere in the world. This is illustrated by its votes in the UN below and the US abrogation of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty and the new US National Space Policy statement.

  At the UN today...
from Alice Slater
October 27, 2006

Sadly, the US statement today was consistent with its flagrant assertion in its new space policy doctrine that it “will oppose the development of new legal regimes or other restrictions that seek to prohibit or limit U.S. access to or use of space.”
What hypocrisy and deception!

  U.S. Global Domination Of Space
Comment by Larry Ross
October 21, 2006

It is likely Bush regime lunatics will soon start what may expand to be Humanity's final war - a war on Iran . They will likely stage a "False Flag" attack on the U.S. and blame Iran . People have been conditioned to hate and fear Iran and believe lies that support and deepen that hate. Proofs to the contrary are simply dismissed as pro-Iranian or pro-terrorist propaganda.


Bush Signs New Policy Edict Calling For U.S. Control of Space:

October 20, 2006

The World is Not Enough, So Now U.S. Intends To Usurp Space
After US President George W. Bush signed away more basic human rights through his draconian Military Commissions Act Of 2006, he moved on this week to signing another unbelievable law: this time claiming outer space for the US, to be enforced by a new military service, the "U.S. Space Forces." And once again, his notion of US "diplomacy" is to order other nations to support this hegemonic US policy, or else.

The Day After Pat's Birthday: A Plea To Speak Up For Democracy

by Kevin Tillman
October 19, 2006

It will be Pat's birthday on November 6, and the mid-term elections are one day later. That gets me thinking about a conversation I had with Pat before we joined the military. He spoke about the risks that come with signing the pap ers. How once we were committed, we would be at the mercy of the American leadership and the American people. How we could be thrown in a direction not of our volition. How fighting as a soldier would leave us without a voice … until we get out. Much has happened since we handed over our voice:


Is War with Iran the October Surprise?

by Captain Eric H. May
October 17, 2006

Polls as Prologue
According to current polls, if the mid-term elections were held today, President George W. Bush and his Republican Party would lose badly . He would then face an opposition Congress in 2007, one bound and determined to reassert its oversight duties. Investigations, an inevitability, could easily lead to his impeachment , and in that event the two-thirds of the United States who don't trust him could ask troubling questions about his presidency, all the way back to the still-murky events of 9/11.

These concerned people should not be be easily dismissed using the usual escape mechanisms we tend to use for unpleasant or unthinkable subjects and problems.

  Many Peace Issues To Work On
Comment by Larry Ross
September 21, 2005

There are many important peace issues and Flyby News gives you vital information about them, as does this web site. Flyby also suggests constructive ways to help and things you can do.

  NASA's Cassini space probe executed a flyby maneuver around the Earth on August18, 1999

This space ship was traveling at record speeds, more than 10 miles per second, and carrying more than 72 pounds of radioactive plutonium on board. It was only seconds away from a possible inadvertent reentry into Earth's atmosphere, which would have released more than 400,000 curies of radiation in a breathable/ingest able form. This could have resulted in millions of fatalities, and untold suffering for generations to come.
NoFlyby's Press Release, "The FORCE Behind Cassini" explains why NASA might have conducted such a high-risk civilian space mission. Flyby News covers this issue of the militarization of space and other concerns vital for life's survival in the 21st Century.

US Plans to Resume Plutonium 238 Production - Report
June 28, 2005

NEW YORK - The United States plans to produce highly radioactive plutonium 238 for the first time since the Cold War, The New York Times reported on Monday.
The newspaper quoted project managers as saying most, if not all, of the new plutonium was intended for secret missions. The officials would not disclose details, but the newspaper said the plutonium in the past powered espionage devices.
The Times said Timothy Frazier, head of radioisotope power systems at the US Energy Department, vigorously denied in a recent interview any of the classified missions would involve nuclear arms, satellites or weapons in space.
"The real reason we're starting production is for national security," Frazier was quoted as saying.
Officials at the Energy Department could not be reached for comment.

Jonathan Schell on Crossing Nuclear Thresholds
by Tom Engelhardt
May 25, 2005

Call it Star Wars, parts VII-XXII; but last week, just as Revenge of the Sith was opening galaxy-wide -- multiplexes on Tatooine alone were expected to pull in billions -- reporter Tim Weiner revealed on the front page of the New York Times that a new presidential directive will soon essentially green-light the future U.S. militarization of space.
(When, in December 2001, the administration withdrew from the Antiballistic Missile Treaty, which forbade the weaponization of space, it opened the way for exactly the kind of Pentagon R&D that now threatens to come to mutant fruition in the heavens.) Just three days before Weiner's piece appeared, military analyst William Arkin reported in the Washington Post that "early last summer, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld approved a top secret 'Interim Global Strike Alert Order,'" preparing the way for devastating attacks against hostile powers developing weapons of mass destruction, air strikes that could be carried out more or less on demand anywhere on the planet and, if so desired, included a "nuclear option."

She thinks ‘HAARP may destabilise a system that has established its own cycle for millions of years’ – protecting life on earth.

Nuclear Terror at Home
by Noam Chomsky
February 26, 2005
Nuclear destruction isn't a high-probability event. But if a low probability event keeps happening over and over, there's a high probability that sooner or later it will take place.
If you can imagine some rational observers from Mars looking at this curious species down here, I don't think they'd put very high odds on survival – another generation or two. In fact, it's kind of miraculous that we've come along this far.
The world has come extremely close to total destruction just in recent years from nuclear war. New Mexico plays an important role in this. There's case after case where a nuclear war was prevented almost by a miracle. And the threat is increasing as a consequence of policies that the administration is very consciously pursuing.
U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld understands perfectly well that these policies are increasing the threat of destruction. As you know, it's not a high probability event, but if a low probability event keeps happening over and over, there's a high probability that sooner or later it will take place.

February 9, 2005

"The Energy Department now spends 35% more on the US nuclear arsenal each year than it did between 1948 and 1991(when it spent the equivalent of $4.2 billion annually in current dollars) The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) "plans to increase spending on the US arsenal to $7.6 billion by 2009"
"Even the Pentagon's own Defence Science Board has come round to the view that there is no need to rebuild large numbers of high yield "legacy" nuclear weapons to support a credible and effective deterrence policy."

Bush Doctrine Is Expected to Get Chilly Reception

by Peter Baker

They were stunned when Bush leaned across a table in a private meeting and lectured Prime Minister Paul Martin about opposing the U.S. missile defense system. And they were later taken aback by a speech filled with what they considered the same "old Bush" foreign policy pronouncements that opened the divide with the allies in the first place.
"If he's going to take that speech to Europe," said a top Canadian official who attended the meeting between Bush and Martin, "he's not going to get a good reception."

Pentagon transformation is well underway. The U.S. military is increasingly being converted into a global oil protection service. Secretary of War Donald Rumsfeld has a "strategy guy" whose job is to teach this new way of warfare to high-level military officers from all branches of services and to top level CIA operatives. Thomas Barnett is a professor at the Navy War College in Rhode Island. He is author of the controversial book The Pentagon’s New Map that identifies a "non-integrating gap" in the world that is resisting corporate globalization. Barnett defines the gap as parts of Latin America, Africa, Middle East and Central Asia all of which are key oil-producing regions of the world.

January 6, 2005

In an age when weapons of mass destruction can be slipped into the United States in a cargo container or even a suitcase, is Ronald Reagan's 1983 dream of building an umbrella against long-range enemy missiles passé? Or is it a necessary screen against the possibility of North Korea or another rogue state tossing a nuclear-tipped rocket our way?
As the US moves ahead with testing and deployment of the system, new questions are swirling about the merits of pursuing such a costly program in a time of war and increased demand for defense dollars.
The debate comes amid enduring skepticism about the technological feasibility of erecting an effective shield. In December, the US missile defense program suffered another test failure when the rocket carrying the "kill vehicle" meant to destroy an incoming mock enemy warhead shut down before launch from the Kwajalein Atoll in the Pacific Ocean.

With the collapse of the Soviet Union and the impoverishment of Russia leaving the United States as the world's "only superpower" or "hyperpower," we are getting to the point, if we are not there already, where only the United States has the capability to launch an offensive first-strike strategic nuclear weapons attack upon any adversary. For that precise reason, deploying the so-called "national missile defense" (NMD) has become a critical objective of the Bush Jr. administration.

President Bush's passion for a missile defense system is now a well-established, heavily budgeted priority despite the fact that the technology remains far from developed or proven. Claims thus far of missile test success have been marginal in highly controlled experiments. That would seem to argue for more testing before the new weapons are fielded at great cost. Not so at the Pentagon, which is pressing to suspend the defense law requiring thorough testing before the nation can commit to major new weaponry.
