text Another home grown catastrophe likely dingo, Sunday, Oct 26 2008, 11:53pm
Due to the ‘thick’ nature of the American public the powers are forced to emphasise a point in order to drive it home. However, the less thick international community easily detects and is alerted by ‘overdone’ remarks! Non-Americans view with extreme suspicion SIMILAR warnings from senior politicians of both major American parties.

text The dead children of Iraq ensure defeat for the murdering USA Eric Margolis via rialator, Friday, Oct 3 2008, 2:06am
Those Wall Street financial alchemists who turned garbage into gold must have helped John McCain prepare for his debate with Barack Obama last Friday. Senator McCain’s insistent claims that the US is winning the war in Iraq thanks to his "surge" strategy are the military-political equivalent of the junk securities that Wall Street’s shady financiers have been selling around the globe.

Chavez and Putin image Chavez: "Go ahead and squeal, Yankees" Kismo, Monday, Sep 8 2008, 10:50pm
“The enemy of my enemy is my friend;” we support anyone and everyone who opposes the mass murdering, plundering, LAWLESS, USA. The rogue must be stopped by all available means. Central Asian and Middle Eastern forces are re-asserting their inalienable rights to their traditional lands and HOMES – “death to all invaders!” China, Russia, India and other East Asian nations are mounting economic and energy attacks as I write. The idiocy of the Bush regime has succeeded where outsiders never could – THEY HAVE IN RECORD TIME RUINED THE ECONOMY/NATION FROM WITHIN – we hope the people continue in their apathy and we wish McCain the best of luck in the race to annihilation.

Siberian tigers and five point plans are all hot air and theatrics in the face of REAL American installations in Kosovo and future missile offensive systems in Poland and the Czech Republic. Russians are culturally a bit slow and thick, so let’s spell it out once again.

bakuceyan.jpg image Ask any American to define democracy! yarrow, Thursday, Aug 28 2008, 4:33am
[The most amenable slave is one who thinks he is free; never before have so many surrendered their rights to so few.]

Propaganda minister Rupert Murdoch has thrown his media empire into overdrive in a vain attempt to alter historical fact. It was Georgian forces that invaded South Ossetia and targeted civilians; Russia responded to the attack and chased the US equipped, Israeli trained Georgian troops back into their holes! However, American media would have you believe that Russia is the aggressor. Perhaps next week they will dust off Bin Laden and utilise him to some advantage – you never know with America in election mode. Osama always managed to make an appearance whenever George W Bush needed a boost – what are friends of the family for? (story and 1 image)

Richard 'ignore treaties' Perle image Laughing all the way to a ‘first NUCLEAR strike!’ gan, Sunday, Aug 24 2008, 3:02am
History records the circumstances and strategies that Franklin D Roosevelt utilised against Imperial Britain during WWII. How he delayed US military involvement in the war until Churchill, in desperation, signed the Atlantic Charter, which effectively ended the British Empire. Such was Churchill's desperation and FDR's determination to subvert Imperial Britain that Roosevelt at one stage seemed as though he would only supply military hardware to a very beleaguered Britain. Section 3 of the Charter reads:

“Third, they respect the right of all peoples to choose the form of government under which they will live; and they wish to see sovereign rights and self government restored to those who have been forcibly deprived of them;” [Bye bye British Empire -- nice one, Franklin!] (story and 2 comments and 1 image)

Criminal complicity: Colin Powell performs at UN image Government cover-up and the Anthrax attacks Tom Engelhardt via rialator, Monday, Aug 18 2008, 9:46pm
And yet, by the end of 2001, it had become clear that, despite the accompanying letters, the anthrax in those envelopes was from a domestically produced strain. It was neither from the backlands of Afghanistan nor from Baghdad, but -- almost certainly -- from our own military bio-weapons labs. At that point, the anthrax killings essentially vanished… Poof!... while 9/11 only gained traction as the singular event of our times. (story and 1 image)

Rice comforts Bush at his ranch image Your own private ‘Crawford’ (Texas) quin, Sunday, Aug 17 2008, 12:10am
G W Bush cut a very lonely/ALIENATED figure at a press conference at his ranch in Crawford, Texas today. Like a demented parrot he continued to repeat “demands” that Russia withdraw from ‘sovereign’ Georgian territory, all the while completely unaware that his ‘demands’ inadvertently attract attention to the hundreds of (UNWANTED) U.S. military bases throughout the world!

text Rice demands immediate Russian withdrawal from Georgia Kingfisher, Saturday, Aug 16 2008, 6:10am
[It hurts doesn’t it?] We are all apt to overlook glaring indicators during frantic media bombardments of mis/disinformation, especially the one currently raging over Georgia’s unprovoked attack on South Ossetia. But note the tone of desperation in the media today! The measured and calculated propaganda campaigns delivered during the illegal Balkan and Iraq interventions are gone; they have been replaced by a truly mindless, disjointed rhetoric punctuated with hysterical simian screeching from Georgia and Texas.

'Dr.' Rice image Headline: “Rice warns Russia of int'l isolation” barra, Thursday, Aug 14 2008, 3:36am
Secretary of State and presidential fellatrice, Condoleezza Rice, has excelled in more ways than one this week. First, let’s establish hard reality; the cesspool of American spin, propaganda and flagrant LIES associated with the Georgian fiasco is a clear indication of desperation in the ranks of the Bush administration -- which is unravelling at speed since the GROSS MISCALCULATION of urging Georgian (lunatic) President, Saakashvili, to mount a military strike on civilians in South Ossetia.

Russian president Dmitry Medvedev, today rightly dismissed Georgian president, Saakashvili, as a “lunatic” and “bastard terrorist” after Georgia’s unprovoked attack on South Ossetia -- which resulted in thousands of civilian deaths. Callous US/NATO strategists, utilising a very reluctant Saakashvili, intentionally targeted innocent Ossetian civilians, but why? The Georgian president’s life in now in danger from furious Georgians AND WESTERN FORCES who would stand to gain in the propaganda war if Saakashvili were assassinated and the murder blamed on Russia!

The ILLEGAL unprovoked, U.S. backed attack on civilian targets in South Ossetia by Georgian forces is now an extremely familiar strategy. First used to great effect in recent times on Yugoslavia, then Iraq – LIES, provocation, response, escalation, destabilisation then FRAGMENTATION, U.S. bases and occupation forces – modern imperialist method in other words.

Oz cannon fodder, ready to fight any illegal War America starts image War in the Caucasus Prof. Michel Chossudovsky via rialator, Sunday, Aug 10 2008, 10:58pm
During the night of August 7, coinciding with the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics, Georgia's president Saakashvili ordered an all-out military attack on Tskhinvali, the capital of South Ossetia.

The aerial bombardments and ground attacks were largely directed against civilian targets including residential areas, hospitals and the university. The provincial capital Tskhinvali was destroyed. The attacks resulted in some 1500 civilian deaths, according to both Russian and Western sources. "The air and artillery bombardment left the provincial capital without water, food, electricity and gas. Horrified civilians crawled out of the basements into the streets as fighting eased, looking for supplies." (AP, August 9, 2008). According to reports, some 34,000 people from South Ossetia have fled to Russia. (Deseret Morning News, Salt Lake City, August 10, 2008) (story and 1 image)

text NATO provoked aggression in Georgia major mitchell, Saturday, Aug 9 2008, 9:27pm
Russia has finally responded to NATO/US attempts to encircle and compromise its defences. After promising to support its traditional ally Serbia, regarding the illegal secession of Kosovo, and failing to do anything but whimper, the Western orchestrated secession occurred. Russia rightly became the laughing stock of the developed world and was thereafter perceived to be a vacillating, timid and weak State -- a fallen superpower! Has the situation changed this week with Russian military intervention in South Ossetia? I think not, and professional opinion seems to support this view. (story and 3 comments)

The scene of John McCain – during the anthrax attacks in October 2001 – opining to David Letterman that Iraq might be responsible underscores McCain’s central role in what may go down as one of the biggest strategic blunders in U.S. military history, the premature pivot from Afghanistan to Iraq.
