Yes, I Know It's Sunday
Yes, I know it's Sunday. No time to mess with this today.
Well, the Provos have made it official now. They've been bought off. Gerry Adams and the crew have been loaded up with government salaries and jobs and perks and little under-the-table sweeteners to the point where it's bugger the poor bastard down on Falls Road with no job or the single mother in Tallaght who can't pay her ESB bill, they've got theirs, Jack. A few interesting points, though. First off, the I.R.A. was never actually defeated and broken up by the British or Northern Ireland state, much less the powerless little 26-County Republic. Eventually the only way the Brits could make the nuisance go away was to open their checkbooks, however grumbling and reluctantly. This was euphemistically known as "bringing them into the democratic process." Secondly, the Provos still haven't "decommissioned" so much as a matchlock musket, and it looks like the usual smoke and mirrors applies there. They're not giving up their guns. Third, the Provo infrastructure is still very much in place, however decayed and degenerate it might be from its heyday in the 1970s. I'm sure all the dumb-asses pub Republicans are still singing Sean South of Garryowen and Four Green Fields in the snugs on Friday nights, and things like Droppin' Well and Dominic McGlinchey's massacre in that church and the murder of Robert McCartney are already on their way to being forgotten. Finally, judging from the Republican web sites I monitor, not everyone is happy by a long shot with the surrender. I've even seen a few unkind comments about Gerry Adams dying his beard to hide the gray hairs. So yeah, the Provos have thrown in the towel, but you have to give the little guy credit: he went all fifteen rounds with the biggest baddest bruiser on his block, and when it was over he was still standing even if he lost on points.
Watched the first episode of "Over There" on FX on Wednesday night. That's the first television series about Iraq, which may some day develop into this generation's "MASH" or "China Beach." Mmm, not too bad an effort. Little too much niggerism in it for my taste, but what do you expect out of Hollywood these days? Also, it's pretty obvious it was filmed out in the Mojave desert someplace. You'd think that there would be enough friendly Arab countries like Jordan or Turkey where the film crew could go and hire local extras as insurgents, etc., but on second thought it's probably too dangerous right now for any American enterprise to go anywhere near that part of the world. Nor do you want to be giving the locals AK-47s, even to fire blanks. My guess would be that all the "Iraqi" extras are really Mexicans. Nonetheless, the first episode did bring up some good issues, like female soldiers bogging down the combat troops in action, torture, an incompetent monkoid officer, and sullen nigger troops muttering mutiny behind the White officers' backs, shades of Vietnam. Not too bad for a first effort at portraying Jug-Ears' moronic little adventure. I'd give it a B. Let's see how they do in future episodes.
[Yeah, yeah, I know, I'm doing it again. You know, I can understand the compulsion of the obsessive article-forwarders like Edvaard on our own Truth Commission group, etc. There's just so much good stuff out there you want to jam people's noses down into and make them understand. I know, I'm yielding far too often to the temptation, but this one is yet another honest to God must-read. I could be dishonest and post it, then edit it just enough to make it sound like I'm doing the commentating, but jeez, I'm not that sleazy. But this is one reason I'm kind of ticked off by this whole blog thing. I know you want news commentary from My Brilliancy, but the fact is that virtually everything I have to say is being said and better, somewhere out there. I could not protest this insane and evil war any better than simply by re-posting Justin Raimondo's columns--damn! If only he didn't have a ten suck-a-day habit! This one is from the U. K. Independent web site. - HAC]
As he completes another tour of duty in the chaos of Iraq, award-winning reporter Patrick Cockburn charts how Bush and Blair's 'winnable war' turned into a mess that is inspiring a worldwide insurgency
Published: 24 July 2005
The Duke of Wellington, warning hawkish politicians in Britain against ill-considered military intervention abroad, once said: "Great nations do not have small wars." He meant that supposedly limited conflicts can inflict terrible damage on powerful states. Having seen what a small war in Spain had done to Napoleon, he knew what he was talking about.
The war in Iraq is now joining the Boer War in 1899 and the Suez crisis in 1956 as ill-considered ventures that have done Britain more harm than good. It has demonstrably strengthened al-Qa'ida by providing it with a large pool of activists and sympathisers across the Muslim world it did not possess before the invasion of 2003. The war, which started out as a demonstration of US strength as the world's only superpower, has turned into a demonstration of weakness. Its 135,000-strong army does not control much of Iraq.
The suicide bombing campaign in Iraq is unique. Never before have so many fanatical young Muslims been willing to kill themselves, trying to destroy those whom they see as their enemies. On a single day in Baghdad this month 12 bombers blew themselves up. There have been more than 500 suicide attacks in Iraq over the last year.
It is this campaign which has now spread to Britain and Egypt. The Iraq war has radicalised a significant part of the Muslim world. Most of the bombers in Iraq are non-Iraqi, but the network of sympathisers and supporters who provide safe houses, money, explosives, detonators, vehicles and intelligence is home-grown.
The shrill denials by Tony Blair and Jack Straw that hostility to the invasion of Iraq motivated the bombers are demonstrably untrue. The findings of an investigation, to be published soon, into 300 young Saudis, caught and interrogated by Saudi intelligence on their way to Iraq to fight or blow themselves up, shows that very few had any previous contact with al-Qa'ida or any other terrorist organisation previous to 2003. It was the invasion of Iraq which prompted their decision to die.
Some 36 Saudis who did blow themselves up in Iraq did so for similar reasons, according to the same study, commissioned by the Saudi government and carried out by a US-trained Saudi researcher, Nawaf Obaid, who was given permission to speak to Saudi intelligence officers. A separate Israeli study of 154 foreign fighters in Iraq, carried out by the Global Research in International Affairs Centre in Israel, also concluded that almost all had been radicalised by Iraq alone.
Before Iraq, those who undertook suicide bombings were a small, hunted group; since the invasion they have become a potent force, their ideology and tactics adopted by militant Islamic groups around the world. Their numbers may still not be very large but they are numerous enough to create mayhem in Iraq and anywhere else they strike, be it in London or Sharm el Sheikh.
The bombers have paralysed Baghdad. I have spent half my time living in Iraq since the invasion. The country has never been so dangerous as today. Some targets have been hit again and again. The army recruiting centre at al-Muthana old municipal airport in the middle of Baghdad has been attacked no fewer than eight times, the last occasion on Wednesday when eight people were killed.
The detonations of the suicide bombs make my windows shake in their frames in my room in the al-Hamra hotel. Sometimes, thinking the glass is going to shatter, I take shelter behind a thick wall. The hotel is heavily guarded. At one time the man who looked for bombs under cars entering the compound with a mirror on the end of a stick carried a pistol in his right hand. He reckoned that if he did discover a suicide bomber he had a split second in which to shoot him in the head before the driver detonated his bomb.
The bombers, or rather the defences against them, have altered the appearance of Baghdad. US army and Iraqi government positions in Baghdad are surrounded by ramparts of enormous cement blocks which snake through the city. Manufactured in different sizes, each of which is named after a different American state such as Arkansas and Wisconsin, these concrete megaliths are strangling the city by closing off so many streets.
For all the newspaper and television coverage of Iraq, the foreign media still fail to convey the lethal and anarchic quality of day-to-day living. The last time I drove into west Baghdad from the airport in early July we were suddenly stopped by the sound of volleys of shots. This turned out to be the police commandos, a 12,000-strong paramilitary force which is meant to be the cutting edge of the government offensive against the insurgents. On this occasion they had loaded coffins wrapped in Iraqi flags, containing the bodies of two of their officers murdered that morning, on to the backs of their pick-ups and were weaving through the traffic, firing over our heads. Drivers slammed on their brakes since people detained by the commandos, often for no known reason, are often found later in rubbish dumps, having been tortured and executed.
The government, whose members seldom emerge from the Green Zone, make bizarre efforts to pretend that there are signs of a return to normality. Last week a pro-government newspaper had an article on the reconstruction of Baghdad. Above the article was a picture of a crane at a building site. But there are no cranes at work in Baghdad so the paper had been compelled to use a photograph of a crane which has been rusting for more than two years, abandoned at the site of a giant mosque that Saddam Hussein was constructing when he was overthrown.
The same quality of make-believe mars British and American policy in Iraq. The current motto of both governments is to "stay the course in Iraq". This may be useful propaganda at home but Iraqi government officials counter that London and Washington have no "course" in Iraq, only a policy of endless zig-zags.
For future historians Iraq will probably replace Vietnam as the stock example of the truth of Wellington's dictum about small wars escalating into big ones. Ironically, the US and Britain pretended in 2003 that Saddam ruled a powerful state capable of menacing his neighbours. Secretly they believed this was untrue and expected an easy victory.
Now in 2005 they find to their horror that there are people in Iraq more truly dangerous than Saddam, and they are mired in an un-winnable conflict.
Another interesting item from that invaluable treasure trove of Judaica, Ha'aretz:
Extremists Pronounce 'Pulsa Denura' Death Curse on PM By Amiram Barkat, Haaretz Service
"A group of extreme-right activists said on Tuesday that they had held a ceremony to place a pulsa denura, a halakhic curse, on Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in order to bring about his death. "Michael Ben-Horin, among the organizers of the ceremony, said that in view of the tight security around Sharon, which "is ten times tighter than the security around Hitler and Stalin," no man would be able to kill him. They had therefore called on the Angels of Destruction to kill Sharon, Ben-Horin said.
"Twenty people took part in the ceremony, which was held last Thursday in the small northern town of Rosh Pina. The participants believe that Sharon will die in the coming 30 days, or else all those who took part in the ceremony would die. "Pulsa denura - or "whip of fire" in Aramaic - is a curse with origins in Kabala mysticism. It first came to light in Israel when far-right rabbis pronounced the curse during the turbulent period that preceded the death of former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin. The ceremony, which is supposed to cause the death of the subject within a year, calls upon the "angels of destruction" to refrain from forgiving the subject his sins, to kill him, and to call down all the curses named in the Bible. "
* * * * *
Now, this is fascinating. In the first place, the Jewish religion is supposed to be so gentle and loving that they would never have such a thing as a death curse anywhere in their liturgy. I mean, they're all just cute little Fiddlers on the Roof, right? Secondly, the pronunciation of the Jewish death curse immediately preceded the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin when an even more nutty than usual kike decided to give the Angel of Death an assist. This had nothing to do with God, but the pronunciation of this ritual more or less constitutes a public proclamation among the yiddles that it's open season on Ariel Sharon. They're so desperate to stop the "disengagement" from Gaza that I would be surprised if someone didn't take a shot at the fat man soon. I still don't think Sharon means it. I think he's going to find some excuse like Palestinian rocket attacks or something to stop it. Especially since it looks like his boy Omri is going to be indicted on corruption charges despite whatever agreement Sharon worked out with his legal people in exchange for the pullout. But if I'm wrong, this is going to be more fun than a barrel of monkeys to watch.
Quick note: it's Monday, and the United States military is officially confirming a major combat loss in Iraq. Four soldiers killed in a mine attack on their vehicle near Baghdad, which occurred on Friday. That's almost four days between incident and confirmation. The Islamic rebels' websites had the claim of four GIs dead, the incident accurately portrayed in the (Arabic) text, with a crude but serviceable video of the bomb attack itself, on their websites within minutes after the incident on Friday. Apparently some of the rebel active service units are now taking webcams with them as they go into action and if you know where to look (I haven't found it yet) you can see real-time, live coverage of insurgent attacks on the Zionist occupying forces. Of course, it also helps to speak Arabic so you know what you're looking at. The point I'm making is that with the advent of al-Jazeera (opening an English language channel in this country next year) and such technology, Hadji Reb's public information system is more accurate than the Americans. How long before Hadji Reb figures out he needs to put up some of those websites in English?
For those of you who came in late, it has always been clear that the entire Gaza "disengagement" proceedings are nothing more than a massive attempt on the part of Ariel Sharon to change the subject in Israel--away from indicting himself and two of his sons on a wide assortment of sleaze. By creating a massive tzimmes in the entire country, (Jews hate it when we throw Yiddish expressions at them), Sharon hopes to distract the attention of the Joosh pipples from the fact that he's a thief and a liar who steals and lies from other Jews, which is an unforgivable sin in their religion. This is one reason why I still believe that, even at this late date, Sharon is going to find some excuse to postpone and then shelve the "disengagement." He's not after a withdrawal. He wants the sound and fury of the process itself. For one thing, once he did successfully withdraw from Gaza, it would be pretty obvious which settlement would have to go next--that looney bin in Hebron, home to the craziest and most homicidal of the settlers. These are the ones that produced mass murderer Baruch Goldstein, the crazed Brooklyn Jew who went berserk in a historic Hebron mosque and machine-gunned over thirty Palestinian worshippers, before being beaten to death with a fire extinguisher. But apparently Ariel Sharon is not out of the woods yet on the corruption indictments, or at least his wheeling-dealing son Omri isn't. Omri has always been Daddy's bag man. The Israeli Attorney General, presumably acting on orders from the shadowy figures who exercise real power in the world, is still holding an indictment over Omri's head, and it could include fraud charges which mandate prison time, as reported in Ha'aretz today. People sometimes ask me why I follow the doings of our enemies more than I spend my time poring over old right-wing and NS material that tells me things I already know. Simple. It's fun. There's nothing more fun than watching Israeli politics; it's like a day at the zoo, in front of the monkey house. It's especially amusing when it begins to appear that the American dog might finally be beginning to wag the Israeli tail, instead of vice versa. Yeah, I know, that's right-wing blasphemy, but there is such a thing as realpolitik, dudes. Wanna hear the hebes scream and scream and scream? Check out the settlers' web site, http://www.arutzsheva.org It's a barrel of laughs.
The state of Israel which, the last time I checked, was both a foreign and a sovereign nation, wants the American taxpayers to cough up $2.2 billion in addition to our regular $3 billion-or-so annual subsidy to pay for the withdrawal from Gaza. Unless the American people raise hell about this, it's a done deal. In Washington, whatever Israel wants, Israel gets. Nevertheless, there are several reasons why the American people should rebel at the latest brazen attack on our treasury by Israel and its American supporters. First, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon decided unilaterally to withdraw from Gaza. This was in lieu of following the president's peace plan, which Sharon has ignored from the very beginning. Where is it written, on stone or parchment or paper, that the head of a foreign government can decide to do something unilaterally and automatically send the bill to the American taxpayers? We will derive no benefits at all from the withdrawal. Furthermore, Sharon's adviser spilled the beans in an Israeli newspaper interview. The withdrawal from Gaza is not part of any peace plan. It was just an excuse to put off serious peace negotiations. Sharon will remove about 8,000 settlers from Gaza who are a pain in the government's rear end anyway, shut down four tiny settlements on the West Bank, and that's it. As Sharon's adviser admitted, there won't be any serious negotiations with the Palestinians until they "turn into Finns." A normal president would view Sharon's actions as unacceptable and his casual expectation that we would pay for it as a personal insult. President George Bush, however, when it comes to Israel, is just like Congress, a candy-ass. That's why, despite all of our problems, all of our deficits, all of our debts, the U.S. government has gifted Israel with more than $90 billion in recent decades. If Washington gives in, we taxpayers will be spending about $227,000 per Jewish settler. That's a sporty moving expense.We paid for the Camp David peace treaty in the 1970s, some $4 billion to Israel to get out of Egyptian territory it had no business occupying in the first place. And as part of that deal, apparently we've been paying Egypt an annual bribe of $2 billion or so a year for having signed the peace treaty. The proper American attitude should be: "We think, Israel, it is in your interests to make peace with your Arab neighbors. That's your decision, however; if you would prefer to remain at war, that's OK with us, because either way, peace or war, we aren't going to pay for it." As for those Christian cultists who take one verse out of a very large Jewish Bible and claim that it binds us to help Israel, I would just say that if you believe God wishes modern Zionists to occupy modern Palestine, let Him pay for it. When did we get appointed fiscal agent for Almighty God? And when did God ever need anybody's help to do whatever he wanted to do? And where is it written in the Constitution that Congress can tax the American people and hand the money out as a gift to foreign countries? It's been said of the suicide bombers that they hate us more than they love life. Well, the American people are going to have to teach their congressional representatives and senators to fear them more than they fear the Israeli lobby, or the American people will continue to be not only taxed unjustly, but dragged into Israel's quarrels in the Middle East. I always add (not that it does any good as far as hostile reactions from the Israel First crowd are concerned) that the Israeli lobby has every right to ask for anything it wants. The fault is not with the lobby; it's with the congressional representatives and senators who betray their oath of office and betray you in order to placate a lobby that has shown itself to be not only effective but vindictive. But, hey, it's your country. If you wish to allow some weak-willed politicians to lay it to waste and destroy the future for your children and grandchildren, that's your decision. But I'm a strong believer that even people who wish to commit suicide should know what they are doing. -Charlie Reese
I notice that Jug-Ears is backing away from his promise to fire anyone who leaked Valerie Plame's identity as a CIA agent. Now the media must prove someone actually "broke the law," in some weird Republican definition of the term. (I say the media because apparently we have now handed over the judicial functions of our previous court system to the Fourth Estate. Ask the government of Aruba.) Why do they bother? Karl Rove ain't going nowhere. He is far more in charge in the White House than Jug-Ears is. When Jug appeared on stage during the election debates and he was detected with some kind of electronic box or prompting device under his jacket, it's an open secret in Washington that it was Rove who was on the other end.
Another little bit of classical a-Sem I found in my files: Marcus Tullius Cicero, first century B.C. Roman stateman, writer: "Softly! Softly! I want none but the judges to hear me. The Jews have already gotten me into a fine mess, as they have many other gentleman. I have no desire to furnish further grist for their mills." (Oration in Defense of Flaccus) Cicero was serving as defense counsel at the trial of Flaccus, a Roman official who interfered with Jewish gold shipments to their international headquarters which was then, as now, located in Jerusalem. Cicero himself certainly was not a nobody, and for one of this stature to have to "speak softly" shows that he was in the presence of a dangerously powerful sphere of influence. On another occasion Cicero wrote: "The Jews belong to a dark and repulsive force. One knows how numerous this clique is, how they stick together and what power they exercise through their unions. They are a nation of rascals and deceivers." You know, you'd really think humanity would have solved this problem by now. God knows there has been evidence enough in every time and place that this Asiatic excrescence is a dangerous threat. The Romans dealt swiftly and finally with people like the Carthaginians and numerous barbarian tribes who threatened their existence. One wonders how much painful history would have been spared if some Roman emperor had possessed the necessary combination of foresight, ruthlessness, and character to perceive that the Jews were a greater threat to Rome and all of humankind than Hannibal ever was, and that one of the greatest things an empire with a civilizing mission could accomplish was to remove this poison from the human body politic. Titus Vespasian dealt sternly enough with them when the need arose. Why did no one ever follow through? Another one of history's mysteries you won't find expounded on The Discovery Channel.
IN THE MERRY NIGHTS OF TEL AVIV, amid the colorful idlers at Allenby, in overflowing restaurants, where crowds of content Israelis leisurely take their relaxation, I see the camouflaged angel writing three words on the wall: "Mene tekel upharsin." My Angel-Russian dictionary translates these words as follows: "We have tried you, and you have not passed the lousiness test".
Black days have descended upon the Israeli people; black because everything that our fathers and ourselves have said, bewailed, and complained about has been as genuine as a three-dollar bill. Back in 1968 I painted on a wall in my native Akademgorodok: "Hands off Czechoslovakia." Jewish poet Alexander Galich sang in his beautiful, deep voice: "Citizens, our Fatherland is in danger! Our tanks are rolling through a foreign land!" Bearing such a slogan, several Jews stepped out onto Red Square, and were somewhat seriously roughed up by the police. Galich, Daniel, Ginzburg, Golomshtok were referring to the Russian tanks in Prague. As Russian citizens who cherish honor even when this contradicts falsely-understood patriotism, we protested against Russian tanks in Budapest, Prague, and Kabul.
Many years have passed. Now it is our Jewish tanks that are rolling through a foreign land.
They are not just rolling - they are killing peaceful civilians, destroying houses, keeping millions of people emaciated and blockaded. One might expect that many Jewish intellectuals have rushed into our Red Square equivalent? Absolutely nothing of the kind. Our singers just celebrate our valiant Jewish fighters, the steady hands and the sharp eyes of our Jewish snipers, and the unlimited humanism of the Jewish people, who could turn all Palestinian goys into mincemeat, but limit themselves to wounding several hundred each day.
Human rights fighters, such as Sharansky, have opposed the propiska [registration of residence] laws, just the way our grandfathers fought the Pale of Settlement. But after our grandfathers won their battle, they herded the goys into reservations, compared to which the Pale of Settlement looks like an open society. A Palestinian may not visit a village next to his without requesting permission, without being searched and having his documents checked. Of course, he would not even dream of visiting the sea, just a few kilometers from his house.
Jews have protested against discrimination at work and in high schools. But now we have created a system of total national discrimination. Out of 13,000 workers at our State Electrical Company, only six are goys. That's 0.0004%! Goys are 40 per cent of the population from Jordan to the sea, but only one quarter of them are allowed to vote. There is not a single goy on the Supreme court, in the executive branch of government, among the generals, in aviation, or in the secret services. There is not a single goy working even in the leading Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz.
That is why everything that Jews have been saying in Russia should be rewritten in view of recent events. We have fought not for human rights - but only for Jewish rights. We have been advocating freedom of movement and occupational choice only for Jews. We are not against our own tanks rolling through foreign lands - we were only against Russian tanks. Upon seeing an unhappy child holding his hands up in front of a machine gunner, we are sorry only if this child is Jewish. The goy's children can be shot at as one wishes.
When Byalik wrote "the devil has not invented a suitable punishment for killing a child," he apparently visualized only a Jewish child. When he was terrified by visions of pogroms, he was terrified of pogroms against Jews. A pogrom by itself is a usual and even a normal occurrence. Recently the Jews of Upper Nazareth conducted a pogrom against the Arabs of Lower Nazareth, but none of the pogromists were prosecuted. Rather, the police shot dead several of those who were victims of the pogrom. Yet another pogrom on a mass scale was perpetrated against the peaceful and innocent town of Beth Jallah.
In tsarist Russia - which our grandparents cursed in every way they could, and ruined - pogroms killed fewer people over one hundred years than we kill in a week. The most terrible Kishinev pogroms [in Russia] took the lives of 45 people, with 600 wounded. The total number of recent victims in Israel [to 31-Oct-2000] equals 150 killed and 4,000 wounded. After a pogrom in Russia, hundreds of honest people, all the writers and the entire intelligentsia, raised their voices against the pogromists who participated in the violence. In Israel, there have been merely some tens who protested in Tel Aviv, and the Union of Jewish writers supported the murderers.
When in 1991 Jews in Russia advocated private property rights in defiance of Communism, they meant only Jewish private property rights - because the goy's private property we confiscate freely, as if it belonged to no one. Just walk along the luxurious districts of Jerusalem - Talbieh, old Catamon, the Greek and German townships. All these palaces belonged to goys - Germans, Armenians, Greeks, Palestinians - Orthodox and Muslims. They have been confiscated and given to Jews. In recent weeks, hundreds of hectares have been confiscated from goys, and tens of houses were destroyed.
Gibraltar Jewish tycoon Gusinsky flew in to support us in our struggle. Not too long ago he appealed to the world community, at the time that Russia was trying to liberate television broadcasting from his clutches. His support of Israel means that Gusinsky agrees with sequestration and arrests based on ethnicity. He is only against confiscation of Jewish property. He is only against Jews sitting in prison - goys can sit in prison for tens of years without being convicted in court - that's what happens in our Jewish state.
In the shortest time we have managed to render null and void all the efforts Jews have been making through the ages in the field of democracy, human rights, and equality. But what is it that we did not like about the German Nazis? Their racism? We don't have any less. The Russian-language Jerusalem newspaper Pryamaya Rech [Direct Speech] conducted a survey among Russian Jews regarding their attitudes towards Palestinians. "I want to kill all Arabs," "All Arabs must be killed," "The Arabs must be expelled, the gates must be closed behind them and locked securely," "An Arab is an Arab. They must be smashed." I am not sure whether a survey of Germans in, say, 1938 would have painted such a clear picture. The Nazis were not planning to kill their Jewish enemies even in 1941.
Therefore, we must admit - that we have been against racism as long as it was directed against us. We have been against Nazism while it was a foreign Nazism. We have been against Sonderkommando butcher troops while these belonged to other people. Our own native Jewish butchers are the objects of our delight. Today Israel is the only country in the world where execution squads are officially active, where the Supreme court just yesterday put limits on how torture may be applied. Don't worry, you will not be affected: our butchers operate strictly in accordance with article five [the nationality law].
We were against ghettoes as long as they drove us into ghettoes. According to the most liberal Jewish plan, several ghettoes for goys are to be created, ghettoes behind barbed wire fences, with tanks around the perimeter, plus a Jewish factory near the fence. It is there that goys will be able to verify whether Arbeit macht frei. We shall give these ghettoes full independence, but taking away from them all possibility of earning a living first.
After that, when the angel has written his terrible words, after the prophet has appealed to the nation of Israel to repent, before us are open two paths. The choice is ours. We can, like the people of Nineveh, repent, return the looted goods, grant full equality, stop the discrimination and the killing - and hope for God's forgiveness, if not for our own sake, then at least for the sake of our cats and dogs. Or, we can persist in our sins, like the inhabitants of Sodom, and prepare for the fire and brimstone to rain down from the furious skies of Palestine.
It is with genuine sadness that I must inform you that our comrade and friend John Tyndall, former leader of the British National Party, has died in his beloved England at the age of 71, apparently of a heart attack during the night. I will write a formal appreciation for John as soon as more facts become available.

We use Yahoo Messenger for our chats, because we had all kinds of problems with the Truth Commission and Hate and Flame chat rooms. What you need to do is:
*Download Yahoo Messenger off the main Yahoo site, if you don't already have it;
*Get a Yahoo ID registered, which takes about 3 minutes;
*Let me know what that ID is so I can add it to my contact list. My ownYahoo ID is h_covington3.
*When chat time comes, log onto Yahoo Messenger, not just the internet itself, so I can see you are there and invite you. Also, some people have their YM's masked so others don't see they're online and pester them with chat while they're working, which I understand, but if I can't see you're online, I can't invite you.
Damn! Missed a day again! I haven't done that for a while. I'm sorry, I just have a lot of difficulty with news commentary. It's been the pablum of the right wing for years. The news is all bird-brained horse manure at best, and once you strip the superficial details it's all pretty much the same. Like, there's some reason you guys can't see that it's all rubbish on your own? You need me to point it out? Evidently...[sigh...]
What follows are suggestions to help keep us out of trouble, discovered the hard way by people who continue to pay the price.
1) Beware of all strangers. Historically, resistance to tyrants has taken the form of small autonomous groups (cells) whose members know and trust one another from long experience.
2) Beware of the man who is "too perfect". He says all the right things, needs little persuasion, plus he supplies a substantial amount of money.
3) Beware of handling someone else's firearms, or, you may find your fingerprints showing up at a crime scene.
4) Be doubly aware of a stranger who proposes illegal activities. You will soon find him testifying against you in federal court.
5) Beware of those who draw checks from the enemy. They are likely to have divided loyalties.
6) Avoid drunks, drug users and any one of unstable character. Always choose quality over quantity.
7) Beware of someone whose intellect, education and background appear different from those with whom he attempts to associate. Most people inter-relate with others of similar interests and background.
8) Do a little investigation. To be sure, the Federals can create a good cover. But they seldom bother because up to now resistance groups have almost never checked their associates background.
9) Recognize the ruthlessness of the tyrant and act accordingly. A government which will mass murder innocent families, including women and children, is not going to play "fair" with you.
10) Beware of signing up for any militia organization or you could find yourself taking orders from F.E.M.A., as much of California and 23 other states are now finding out.
11) Recognize the media's tactics. Do not react to buzz words: religious separatists; White supremacists; tax protesters; cultists; Nazis and other words which the masses are conditioned to hate. After the media has demonized the target, as in Ruby Ridge and Waco, the government is free to murder as it chooses.
We must create our own means of informing the masses to cause them to be sympathetic to our cause (learn to fish in friendly waters). We must be committed to spreading the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Endeavor always to send messages which will ring true in the ears of our countrymen. There is an enormous amount of moral and ideological high ground which has been abandoned by our foes. Claim it and use it. As our cause continues to rapidly grow in numbers and knowledge, it has not been without pain. We must all bear in mind that we are volunteers from all walks of life. Each of us must guard against ego eruptions. To be a good leader, you must first be willing to be a servant. Study the book, "The Art Of War" over and over. You must earn respect - don't demand it. Keep it simple - building from the bottom up - "private" cells and public meetings. Have you ever tried to build a house starting with the shingles first? The militia is as strong as the preparedness of each individual family. If you can't eat it, wear it, shoot it, do you really need it? What good are your guns and bullets if your stomach is empty and your feet are bloody or frozen?
There's some more scuffling and shuffling in Gaza tonight, as Palestinian fights Palestinian. Abbas very stupidly tried to placate the Jews by harassing Hamas over their ineffective but symbolic pyrotechnics, and Hamas hit back. You'd think a guy like Abbas would have learned by now; there is simply no placating the hebes. Every time the Palestinians even make a gesture all they get is "You must do more!" from the kikes and from Condi of the Bubble Lip. Meaning he must be a good little lickspittle lackey to the Jews and start a civil war with his own people at their behest, and in return the millions of Palestinians might graciously receive permission to live on a postage-stamp size portion of their own land. There's been a serenade of Qassams onto the settlements by Hamas, who are trying to claim credit (possibly at least partially correctly) for the allegedly impending withdrawal of Jewish settlers. And now there's mutterings among the Israeli bureaucracy about postponing the "disengagement." Ser-prise, ser-prise, Sergeant Carter! Mmmm...I'm still not convinced that Ariel Sharon actually intends to move so much as a potted plant out of Gaza. The man is not only a murderer, he is a pathological liar and as crooked as a dog's hind leg. The only reason he started this whole "disengagement" lark anyway is because his own Attorney General was about to indict him and his sons for a particularly sleazy piece of electoral corruption and he needed a distraction. I still think the whole thing may be some kind of gigantic gull to set the Palestinians up and perpetuate the occupation forever. I'll believe it when I see it. Thirty days now, supposedly. We'll see.
SIX SOULS W. K. Enwer - 1917 I was a peasant of the Polish plain. I left my plow because the message ran, Russia in danger needed every man To save her from the Teuton. I was slain. I gave my life for freedom--this I know For those who bade me fight had told me so. I was a Tyrolese, a mountaineer; I gladly left my mountain home to fight Against the brutal, treacherous Muscovite; And died in Poland on a Cossack spear. I gave my life for freedom--this I know For those who bade me fight had told me so. I worked in Lyons at my weaver's loom When suddenly the Prussian despot hurled His felon blow at France and at the world; Then I went forth to Belgium and my doom. I gave my life for freedom--this I know For those who bade me fight had told me so. I owned a vinyard by the wooded Main Until the Fatherland, beset by foes Lusting her downfall called me, and I rose Swift to the call, and died in fair Lorraine. I gave my life for freedom--this I know For those who bade me fight had told me so. I worked in a great shipyard on the Clyde; There came a sudden word of war declared, Of Belgium peaceful, helpless, unprepared Asking our aid. I joined the ranks and died. I gave my life for freedom--this I know For those who bade me fight had told me so. I worked upon a farm in Illinois. The squad appeared; with them I marched away. Somewhere in France, amid the trenches gray I met grim death with many other boys. I gave my life for freedom--this I know For those who bade me fight had told me so.
They say every cloud has a silver lining. It may turn out that the silver lining on the cloud of the London bombings is that the British will finally, after fifty years, decide to do something about their god-awful immigration problem. It was back in 1968 that Enoch Powell made his famous "Rivers of Blood" speech. I note with interest that this speech has now been called to mind in the British media and in some cases reprinted. I have never made any bones about the fact that I consider the Muslim peoples of the world justified in acts of armed resistance against Israel, the United States, and anyone else who is complicit in the theft of their land and the murder of their people. I also believe that the Iraqi people and anyone else is entitled to fight off a foreign invader--including the British and the Americans. We have no business over there, and they have no business over here. The one silver lining in all of this is that it may force the wealthy White men in suits and the Jews who control both the United States and the United Kingdom to re-assess this "glorious mosaic" shit and decide that there are at least some shades of brown we don't need in the West. Then maybe some day I'll be able to go into a Wimpy's on Oxford Street and find someone in there who speaks English. (That actually happens quite often now in London; parts of the city are completely Third World.) Maybe I'll even be able to go into a grocery store in Texas and not be greeted by the checker in Spanish first. Or maybe I'm just a hopeless optimist.

From the era of Plato, Socrates, and Cato to that of DaVinci andMichelangelo, to Locke and Shakespeare, to Jefferson and Franklin, Western civilization has sprung from the creative genius of one kindred people. In the vast panorama of time this period was but a fleeting moment and a glorious dream. The near future will show what manner of civilization will follow the passing of the White man. How sad and ironic that the American republic, which was formed exclusively for the preservation and promotion of Western man, became the vehicle through which he was destroyed both here and in his European homeland.
For many years I have struggled in whatever ways were available to a single powerless person to crack the iron media curtain and show my people that those very things which are protected, promoted, and forced upon us by those who today control the affairs of the Western world have destroyed every civilization we have ever built. I refer to such things as infanticide through abortion, a practice which has led to the murder of fifteen million babies of my kith and kin, and which is protected by the government and the Federal courts; homosexuality, whose adherents are forced upon us as role models and even teachers of our children by the government and Federal courts; and worst of all, the deliberate destruction of our very racial existence.
Those who have set out to mix and destroy the last remnant of Western man know full well that no people can continue in existence without a nation of their own in which to propagate, protect, and promote their own kind. They also know that a people who are not convinced of their own uniqueness and value will perish, and that is why I am slandered and destroyed when I show that nearly every improvement in the human condition has come from the fertile mind of Western man.
The White man is now a tiny minority in the world, yet he is denied not only a nation of his own but the integrity of the territorial imperative necessary to his survival. The guilt of those who partake in the destruction of this Race of men cannot be adequately described in the vocabulary of mortals. Regarding the prosecutors in this case, I say only that if the perpetuation of power is predicated on perjury, then the U. S. Attorneys are as solid as the Rock of Gibraltar. But if nature's laws allow for the concepts of justice or karmic debt, then they walk on quicksand.
That this trial even occurred is a violation of every Constitutional protection against double jeopardy. The legalistic machinations and chicanery involved in jeopardizing a man for potentially unlimited times for the same offense, by changing the legal description of that offense, by changing jurisdictions and so on are utterly repugnant to the sense of Anglo-Saxon justice as well as totally contrary both to the spirit and the intent of the Constitution. The mad frenzy of those who now control the Federal government of the United States to punish and destroy any White man who resists the deliberate admixture and murder of his rapidly disappearing Race is evident.
History predicts unspeakable horror for the last generation of White children, if I and others who shall come after me are not more successful in awakening our people from their sleep of death. Our task is as simple as itis overwhelmingly important: WE MUST SECURE THE EXISTENCE OF OUR PEOPLE AND A FUTURE FOR WHITE CHILDREN. In the face of that overriding historical imperative, what you do to me does not matter. I am not a brave man; I die the thousand deaths of the philosopher instead of the single death of the soldier. But I willingly sought this destiny, and I will not shrink from it.
Soon you will hear from another who will undoubtedly speak of his religious beliefs. Perhaps even at this late date, the power of a religious creed can save Western man, or perhaps Divine Providence will indeed lend a hand. If not, then those who rebel against tyranny must still accept the consequences with a shrug, or they are neither patriots nor men.
I find it significant that the leak of the memo on the alleged withdrawal plans of the U. S. and, more importantly, the U. K., came just days after the London bombings. It also seems to have originated on the British side of the water. According to that leaked memo, which basically involves handing Iraq over to the local thugs like we've largely done in Afghanistan, it appears that the British military presence in the country will be reduced to a token couple of hundred Tommies hanging around the embassy in Basra by this time next year. It's almost like the Brits are sending Al-Qaeda and other Islamic resistance groups in Iraq and elsewhere the sub rosa message that "Right,we're leaving, please, no more bombs on the Tube, eh what?" I have lived in London for two extended periods, and not as a tourist, but as the locals do, including depending on that Tube for transport to and from work. The United Kingdom is a luxury sedan among nations, despite its many problems. London is its engine. A car can't run without its engine. Great Britain can't function without London up and running. Shut down public transportation in London and you shut down London. Great Britain must, repeat, must have that Tube and those buses running every day. Driving in to work in automobiles like Americans do every day simply isn't feasible. Even a few hours of shutdown costs millions of pounds; repeated shutdowns over a period of months cost billions and bring England to the edge of ruin. It took the I. R. A. almost 25 years to figure this out. It took the Arabs less than four. I remember Maggie Thatcher and John Major swaggering and beating their chests and invoking the spirit of old Winnie and offering only blood, sweat, and tears and all that toffee-nosed twaddle back then, too. It took a while, but there came the Good Friday agreement and the same guys who were planting the bombs in the Tube back in '91 and '92 when I was there are now sitting in various parliamentary and governmental bodies and drawing big, fat salaries from the British taxpayer. And for all their smoke and mirrors and blarney, so far as I can tell from reading the Irish media on the internet anyway, the Provos haven't "decommissioned" or given up so much as a single matchlock musket. The I. R. A. allowed themselves to be bought off on Good Friday. Somehow, I don't think these gentry in the turbans are after money. My guess is: on July 7th, even Tony Blair and the most virulent of the British neo-cons got the message, and very quietly they're getting ready to make like Sir Robin in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and boldly bugger off. After eating Tony's minstrels, no doubt.
"LONDON, July 10 (Reuters) - A leaked document from Britain's Defence Ministry says the British and U.S. governments are planning to reduce their troop levels in Iraq by more than half by mid-2006, the Mail on Sunday newspaper reported.
"The memo, reportedly written by Defence Minister John Reid, said Britain would reduce its troop numbers to 3,000 from 8,500 by the middle of next year." Mmmm, I don't know about this. Sounds like one of those straws in the wind that keep getting floated by the media for various ulterior motives. I personally don't think Jug-Ears and his neo-con and big business backers have any plans to withdraw from Iraq at all, and those four mammoth bases the American military is building in Iraq would seem to back that up. If this memo is accurate, going by what it says in the full story, essentially the plan is to more or less hand over Iraqi Kurdistan to the Peshmergas and the Shi'ite south around Basra to Sistani's Badr Militia (these are the "free and democratic Iraqi forces" we here so much about.) These paramilitary organizations are already for all practical purposes running their parts of Iraq anyway, and American occupation troops are significant by their absence. The Americans generally stay the hell out of any part of Iraq which does not contain significant oil reserves or infrastructure; that's why U. S. troops are in Mosul and Kirkuk up in Kurdistan and risk stepping on the Peshmergas' toes, because there is oil there. The non-oil rich areas, i.e. most of the desert parts of the country, are quiet because they are ethnically homogenous and because the local strongmen and warlords keep order. This is in essence what we did in Afghanistan--ZOG hired the local thugs to do the wet work. The idea appears to be to subcontract our occupation to the Kurds and Shi'ites and let them slaughter the Sunnis while we quietly look the other way, whistling a tune and pretending we don't see. It has, well, sort of worked in Afghanistan, although the sitch there seems to be deteriorating. Still, it does show that at least a little thinking is now going into trying to find some way out of the Iraqi morass.
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi announced today that a withdrawal of Italian troops in Iraq would begin in September, to be completed hopefully by the end of 2005. So that will leave us, the Brits, little Bulgaria, and really no one else with any troop strength at all there---our remaining allies have contingents of mostly less than 100 troops. Slowly but surely, the penny is dropping in Europe that palling around with Jug-Ears can be hazardous to one's political health.
A few random thoughts: 1) How many of the 37 dead and however many hundred wounded were White? People don't realize that London is largely a Third World city now; the original Caucasian inhabitants of the city have been driven out into huge high-rises ringing the city or else up into Essex and Surrey and Hertfordshire. 2) I well remember the delays in getting to and from work and around the city when I was there in '91 and '92 due to the I. R. A. bombing campaign of the time. I also remember how the British government of the time blustered and swaggered and beat their chests like they're doing now, and in the meantime quietly and without fanfare opened negotiations with the I.R.A. that led eventually to the Good Friday Agreement. 3) The United Kingdom is a vehicle with one engine, economically speaking, and that's London. The other major industrial cities like Manchester and Liverpool and Sheffield and Birmingham have been allowed to decay. The U. K. simply cannot afford to have London shut down, and there is really very little they can do about it in the face of a determined enemy. My guess is those British troops will be gone from Iraq in a year's time. They'll find some plausible excuse, but Tommy Atkins is coming home, mark my words.
22 Jan 1997 Hello all, My name is Rich and I just recently joined this list. I'm interested in revisionism and open debate on the Holocaust. Does this list engage in open debate on the Holocaust or did I join the wrong list? Also, I just read about Jewish ritual murder. Do people believe that this is true?>> Regards, Rich
Dear Mr. Green:
Yes, I do believe that the Jews have practiced ritual murder as part of their religious ceremonies in the past, and that they almost certainly do so today, with the following qualifiers:
*I do not believe this practice is or ever has been widespread, but has always been restricted to a small number of the most hard-core rabbis and Jewish cabalistic mystic sects;
*I am perfectly willing to accept the likelihood that individual Jews down through history have been falsely accused of this practice, just as I believe that on the other hand it has often been carried out undetected and/or unpunished. The Beiliss case in 1913 Russia is a good case in point: Mendel Beiliss himself was probably innocent of the actual commission of murder although he may have been peripherally involved in covering up the act on the part of his co-religionists;
*I am willing to accept that the overwhelming majority of Jews are unaware that the "blood libel" has at least a partial grounding in fact and genuinely believe it to be a slander, just as most Jews probably believe that the Holocaust occurred more or less as advertised despite mounting evidence to the contrary.
My belief in the preceding is based on two foundations: extensive study of the historical, cultural, and religious aspects of Judaism, and my own personal observation, dealings, and experience with the Jews as individual people over a period of 25 years. I don't want this e-mail to get too prolix, since this isn't really my area of enthusiasm---the Jews' public and political crimes are far worse than their private religious ones---but briefly summarized:
1. There is an immense amount of anecdotal and circumstantial evidence that these sacrificial homicides took place in the past, back in times when concealment was harder and Aryans far more aware and wary of the Jew than they are today.
It is significant that ever since the days of Babylon, a period of almost four thousand years, this accusation (like many others) has been leveled lagainst the Jews everywhere they have ever resided in the world. Time and again down through the ages the Jews have been caught literally red-handed, in some cases toting the dead body of the child whose blood they have drained away to dispose of it in sacks or wagons, sometimes with the corpse being found in the synagogue cellars, etc.
The Jews' response to this is "ve is beink poisecute!" They maintain that down through forty centuries of history, there has been a mammoth conspiracy to frame them for ritual murder. According to this theory, in places as far apart as Cochin China, medieval Germany, 1913 Kiev and 1970 Montreal, and among peoples as diverse as knightly Crusaders, Turkish sultans, twelfth-century Yorkshire Saxons, Argentinians, Cossacks, British historians, Renaissance Italian popes, assorted saints and sinners, the burgomeisters of Prague, and modern-day Arabs, there exists one big long, continuous plot periodically to murder small children, drain them of blood, and plant the bodies on Jewish premises or in Jewish vehicles, etc.
That's one hell of a conspiracy!
There are other similar complaints always leveled against the Jews wherever and whenever they have gone---economic trickery and despoliation, refusal to assimilate, disloyalty to their host country, arrogant behavior and hatred against their hosts, etc. The Jewish response is always the same---for four thousand years, everybody in the world has been engaged in a colossal conspiracy to "get" them. Nowadays most people believe that, not suprising in view of the Jewish control of the media of communications which has existed in varying strengths in the Western world since the late nineteenth century. But in the old days it didn't wash.
Our medieval ancestors were not fools. They lived with the Jews side by side in close-packed urban communities, very small by modern standards, and knew the Jews far more intimately than we do today. Just like people today, they cared about their children, and when a child was slain the entire community interested itself not only for purposes of revenge, but to ensure the safety of everyone's kids. We are asked to believe that time and again, insular communities who discovered they had a child-killer in their midst stubbornly refused to apprehend the alleged Gentile "real killers" and blamed the Jews out of religious bigotry. What possible interest could any community, medieval or otherwise, have in lynching an innocent scapegoat and allowing a real killer of children to go free? Why would everyone in Trier or Lincoln or Spoleto or Kiev go along with such a miscarriage of justice when doing so put other children at risk? Why (so far as we know) did the child-killings cease once the Jews had been punished and (usually) driven from the community?
2. The Jewish religion allows for and practices animal sacrifice, per the Old Testament or Torah as they call it, although these customs have long been held in abeyance and in theory apply only to the Temple in Jerusalem. There is an entire sect of "Kohanim" in Israel who practice and train successive generations of rabbis in the techniques of sacrifice in anticipation of the day when Israel succeeds in wresting the Al Aqsa mosque away from the Muslims who have held it for 1400 years and rebuilds the Temple. The Talmud teaches that non-Jews are *goyim*, beasts without souls. To a religious Jew there is no difference between a German or an American or an African and a cow or a horse or a fish; all lesser non-Jewish forms of life, humanoid or otherwise, were put here by God to serve and pleasure the Jew. When the Jews claim that they do not practice "human" sacrifice they are by their own weird lights telling the truth. They do not consider Gentiles to be human.
3. For the past 25 years I have been in a unique position to observe Jewish behavior and the Jewish character at first hand, since being a National Socialist they don't bother to keep their usual variety of masks on with me and they let all that Talmudic hatred hang out. Anyone who has ever done night duty in a National Socialist headquarters and lifted the telephone for call after call, hour after hour, to hear the crazed screaming Brooklynese of a Jew driven mad by hatred, spewing a string of profanity and terms of excrement, raving like some demented parrot or monkey, totally out of all human control---thus begins wisdom. Anyone who wants to understand the true nature of this "Light Unto The Nations" need only oppose them in public, and he will soon find out what utterly loathsome beings the Jews are, what vicious and contemptible cowards they are, what potentially deadly serpents they are.
But don't take my word for it. Check out the Nizkor playgroups and see for yourself. See a Revisionist post a calm, serious, well-researched comment on some aspect of the Holocaust and then see the literally hundreds of hysterical, malicious, hateful, filthy and abusive posts which follow from the little cadre of about two dozen kikes and kike wannabes who go berserk attacking, vilifying, insulting, and threatening anyone who dares to contradict the self-proclaimed Chosen People of God.
I won't belabor this further, but I will close with two points:
First off, the Jewish people are entirely capable of practicing ritual murder, and there is an immense amount of historical evidence that they did so. I cannot imagine why they would stop now in this day and age, when they have the power to conceal their misdeeds and the captive media falsely to portray them as victims. How many of those little children you see on milk cartons have fallen victim to the knives of the rabbis and lie buried in some remote wasteland or were ground up into dog food in some Jewish-owned processing plant? I am convinced that at least some of them met that fate.
Secondly, the Jews deserve everything that has happened to them in the past and everything that is coming to them in the future, especially when the Palestinians get their state as a toehold and America finally runs out of money and the New Yahk-Tel Aviv lifeline collapses. I do not question that innocent individuals of Jewish extraction have suffered down through the ages for crimes which they as individuals did not commit---but my people and all the peoples of the world have suffered far more at the hands of the Chosen Ones.
The Jews are great survivors, got to give them that. Like rats and cockroaches, and like rats and cockroaches I doubt we'll ever get rid of them entirely. But the world is a much smaller place now, global village and all that. It used to be they could just move on to the next "Goldeneh Medina" when they wore out their welcome somewhere else---but they can't do that any more. Everybody knows about them now, from Uganda to Honolulu, from Rome to Regina. They've run out of trap doors to dodge through and run out of places to run and hide. Their much-vaunted Israel is going to end up nothing but a death trap.
There is a reckoning coming, a reckoning between humanity and the Jewish people which will cause the very heavens to darken and the very devils in hell to hide their faces in shock and terror. You might say we owe them a Holocaust. We've been paying their bill for fifty years, and at some point we're finally going to get what we've paid for.
And when that day comes, who knows? Even I might pity them.....
NOTE: A friend of mine sent me this neo-con taradiddle and asked me to reply to it. This subject is obviously a very complex one and really should be treated at book length, as I hope some day some of the better writers like Justin Raimondo and Paul Craig Roberts will do. Nor can I match the short pieces of magnificent invective from guys like Charley Reese and Fred Reed. But I'll do my best. My comments are in brackets. [ ]
- Harold A. Covington July 4th, 2005
========================== Subject: War Against Terrorism
Received this from a friend, I think you will find it an interesting article by an unknown author.
This is rather long but I think it is well worth the time. This tells the real story of why we are in this war and why it is necessary. Those that are against the war just don't get the picture or just want to be against something.
[Oh, yes, sir, believe me, we get it. And we don't like what we get.]
To get out of a difficulty, one usually must go through it. Our country is now facing the most serious threat to its existence, as we know it, that we have faced in your lifetime and mine (which includes WWII).
[As a historical note, the existence of the United States was never under any serious threat during the Second World War. Neither Japan nor Germany ever seriously contemplated any kind of mass invasion of the continental United States. They would have been foolish do so; they lacked the manpower and the logistics and the leadership of both countries was quite well aware of the fact. Neither did the Axis have any strategic interest in "conquering" the United States even had it been feasible; Germany's strategic aims were centered in Europe and the Soviet Union and Japan's in China. Germany, for example, had no aircraft carriers at all and Japan's carriers had to protect a far-flung Pacific empire. The idea that the Second World War was fought to "defend America" from some kind of mythical Axis invasion is, quite simply, fatuous nonsense. Not even the most rabid pro-Roosevelt, pro-Jewish historian has ever made any such suggestion.]
The deadly seriousness is greatly compounded by the fact that there are very few of us who think we can possibly lose this war and even fewer who realize what losing really means.
[Yes, we do realize what it means. It means America might have to dump Israel and quit acting like a drunken bully in a bar and beating up on anyone we can find smaller and weaker than we are. Nerts.]
First, let's examine a few basics:
1. When did the threat to us start?
Many will say September 11th, 2001. The answer as far as the United States is concerned is 1979, 22 years prior to September 2001, with the following attacks on us:
â‚¬ Iran Embassy Hostages 1979; â‚¬ Beirut, Lebanon Embassy 1983; â‚¬ Beirut, Lebanon Marine Barracks 1983; â‚¬ Lockerbie, Scotland Pan-Am flight to New York 1988; â‚¬ First New York World Trade Center attack 1993; â‚¬ Dhahran, Saudi Arabia Khobar Towers Military complex 1996; â‚¬ Nairobi, Kenya US Embassy 1998; â‚¬ Dares Salaam, Tanzania US Embassy 1998; â‚¬ Aden, Yemen USS Cole 2000; â‚¬ New York World Trade Center 2001; â‚¬ Pentagon 2001.
(Note that during the period from 1981 to 2001 there were 7,581 terrorist attacks worldwide).
[Wrong, Dead wrong.
The "threat", or more properly termed the casus belli, the cause of the war, began in 1948 when the United States was instrumental in planting several million foreign Jews in the heart of one of the most sacred stretches of land in the Islamic world, where they then proceeded piratically to seize upon what was not theirs. The cause of the war is Israel and the utter, slavish subservience of the United States to Israel. Period. End of story. The number of casualties and the amount of property damage caused by Muslim retaliation of various kinds is far, far outweighed by the loss of life and property inflicted against the Muslim peoples of the world by the high-tech American and Israeli murder machines.]
2. Why were we attacked?
Envy of our position, our success and our freedoms. The attacks happened during the administrations of Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush 1, Clinton and Bush 2. We cannot fault either the Republicans or Democrats as there were no provocations by any of the presidents or their immediate predecessors, Presidents Ford or Carter.
[Horse shit. Pure, unadulterated horse shit. This is wrong on so many levels that I don't even know where to start, so I'll keep it short.
The United States of America and its sock puppet Israel have oppressed, attacked, murdered, insulted, and robbed the Islamic world since we sold them out at Versailles in 1919, after they fought our battle against the Turks and the Germans at the behest of Lawrence of Arabia, and we went back on everything Lawrence promised them.
We were attacked because the Muslim world finally got tired of the United States and its Israeli attack dog slaughtering their people like animals, dropping bombs on their children, bulldozing their homes, stealing their land, torturing their people with cattle prods, stealing their oil, defiling their religion, destroying their hospitals and water treatment plants, making millions of them refugees, and kicking them in the teeth whenever we felt like it. If you beat a dog and beat him and beat him, and keep on beating him, he'll eventually turn on you and bite. On September 11th, 2001, America learned that these people whom we so contemptuously dismiss as "ragheads" may be dogs to us, but dogs have teeth.]
3. Who were the attackers?
In each case, the attacks on the US were carried out by Muslims.
[Ahhhhh, welllllll, now.....
How, exactly, do we KNOW this? Our government tells us so? Well, golly gee, I guess that just settles it once and for all, don't it? I mean, we know our gubmint would never LIE to us, now, would they?
Okay, here again, this is simply too complex a subject to give it anywhere near the full treatment it deserves in the space I have here, so I'll just say this: there is in fact a TREMENDOUS amount of doubt as to exactly what happened on September 11th, 2001. It is probable that yes, the 19 young Arab men had something to do with it, but as to who they were and what their precise agenda was, no one knows. So far as I am aware, Osama Bin Laden himself has never explicitly claimed credit for 9/11, although he has played coy on the subject.
But if there is any proof, we have not been allowed to see it. The Bush administration, with its usual obsessive secrecy, has withheld countless documents and pieces of evidence from the public and from the few toothless official investigations that have tried to get information. There are all kinds of questions that need to be answered, specifically involving certain incidents in the weeks prior to the attack which would seem to indicate at LEAST prior knowledge on the part of the Israeli Mossad.
Two suspicious episodes spring to mind right off the bat: the arrest of four Israelis by the New York police who were on top of a building videotaping the World Trade Center events and LAUGHING while they were doing it, and the bizarre behavior of groups of young "Israeli art students" who appeared throughout the country attempting to gain entry to a number of U. S. government installations and offices in the weeks prior to the attack.
The best I can do here is to refer readers to http://www.antiwar.com and the file of back articles by Justin Raimondo on the subject of possible Israeli foreknowledge or involvement in 9/11. I know that sounds like passing the buck, but if I get off onto this topic this e-mail will run to the length of War and Peace.]
4. What is the Muslim population of the World? 25%
5. Isn't the Muslim Religion peaceful?
Hopefully, but that is really not material. There is no doubt that the predominately [that's "predominantly" - HAC] Christian population of Germany was peaceful; but under the dictatorial leadership of Hitler (who was also Christian), that made no difference. You either went along with the administration or you were eliminated. There were 5 to 6 million Christians killed by the Nazis for political reasons (including 7,000 Polish priests). (see http://www.nazis.testimony.co.uk/7-a.htm ).
[Hmmm....more crap about Hitler. They always just HAVE to work that tired old wheeze in somewhere, don't they?
This is going to be hard. Whatever clown wrote this effluvia just throws out these sweeping generalizations that have become accepted as "official truth," all of which require detailed and damned near book-length refutation. This is assuming anyone is even willing to listen, given that the average American has the attention span of a house fly and has been conditioned to believe whatever he is told by the television or by some blow-dried, bouffant-haired pig-ignorant televangelist with the soul of a hog. Clearly, this piece is directed towards the neo-cons main (and now only) allies: the so-called Religious Right.]
Thus, almost the same number of Christians were killed by the Nazis, as the 6 million holocaust Jews who were killed by them; and we seldom heard of anything other than the Jewish atrocities. Although Hitler kept the world focused on the Jews, he had no hesitancy about killing anyone who got in his way of exterminating the Jews or of taking over the world - German, Christian or any others.
[Yadda, yadda, yadda, blah, blah, blah, holey moley, will you GIVE IT A REST, already?
That war ended sixty years ago and if it weren't for the damned Jews we wouldn't be obliged to be constantly re-fighting it. Kind of a compliment to the Fuhrer, though, in a way. Sixty years after his death and these yammerheads are still terrified of the man's ghost.
Jeez, you guys WON. Hitler is dead; you killed him. (Or rather your Communist buddies from the USSR did.) So why, exactly, do you have to keep on kicking his corpse? You know, it's things like this that make young people today wonder about National Socialism and want to find out more. The way I saw it when I was a teenager, I knew something was wrong in society today, and if the morally denatured dumb-asses who run this rotten world were so filled with hate and rage and fear of Adolf Hitler, then the man obviously had something to say I needed to hear. You'd have a lot less problem with so-called "racism" and "hate groups," etc. if you'd just shut the hell up about him and let the war end. But I digress.]
Same with the Muslim terrorists. They focus the world on the US, but kill all in the way -- their own people or the Spanish, French or anyone else. The point here is that just like the peaceful Germans were of no protection to anyone from the Nazis, no matter how many peaceful Muslims there may be, they are no protection for us from the terrorist Muslim leaders and what they are fanatically bent on doing -- by their own pronouncements -- killing all of us "infidels". I don't blame the peaceful Muslims. What would you do if the choice was shut up or die?
[Has anyone besides me noticed that this entire section of this stupid article doesn't really have any bearing on the subject at hand? Just another excuse to kick at an old enemy who's been dead for sixty years. Boy, you can really tell who's signing the paychecks here.]
6. So who are we at war with?
There is no way we can honestly respond that it is anyone other than the Muslim terrorists. Trying to be politically correct and avoid verbalizing this conclusion can well be fatal.
There is no way to win if you don't clearly recognize and articulate who you are fighting.
[Who is trying to avoid it? Leaving aside the use of the politically correct term "terrorist," yes, we are now at war with an Islamic resistance movement. A war we brought on ourselves. I don't see anyone trying to "avoid" this conclusion, although needless to say Israel somehow seems always to get left out of the discussion.]
So with that background, now to the two major questions:
1. Can we lose this war?
[For our own sake, we'd better hope we do. Otherwise we'll end up with a huge empire in the Middle East, draining America like a mammoth leech, based on nothing but one finite and expendable product, oil, ruling by the sword over hundreds of millions of sullen, embittered people who hate our guts and will never cease resisting at least on some level.
How long would such a "victory" last? Ten years? Twenty years? Thirty, before it collapsed in on itself with an explosive force that might well destroy world civilization as we know it and send all of humanity back into another Dark Age? How much wealth will we pour into this mighty, useless and tormented empire that "victory" will bring us? How many lives? How much time and effort and blood and sweat and tears and anguish would we pour into such a "victory" in an attempt to do what is clearly impossible to any rational human being--to civilize the native chappies at the point of a gun? The British tried it, guys. Didn't work. To make THEM be like US whether they want to or not? To transform one billion Muslims into Brady Bunch clones?
Ain't gonna happen, fool.]
2. What does losing really mean?
[It means America might have to accept that we are no better than anyone else and we're part of a world community, and that we cannot just go charging through the world like a bull in a china shop doing whatever the hell we want. It would mean that we might have to sit down and re-think this whole Israel thing and come to some kind of moral grips with the living hell we have inflicted on the Muslim world for the past century. And that, of course, is unthinkable. Better endless war, generation after generation, than admit Amurrica has backed the wrong horse.]
If we are to win, we must clearly answer these two pivotal questions.
We can definitely lose this war, and as anomalous as it may sound, the major reason we can lose is that so many of us simply do not fathom the answer to the second question - What does losing mean?
It would appear that a great many of us think that losing the war means hanging our heads, bringing the troops home and going on about our business, like post Vietnam. This is as far from the truth as one can get.
What losing really means is:
We would no longer be the premier country in the world.
[BINGO! Given our behavior, we don't DESERVE to be the premier country in the world. Let the Dutch or the Australians or the Fiji Islanders have a go.]
The attacks will not subside, but rather will steadily increase. Remember, they want us dead, not just quiet.
[No. They want Israel dead, not just quiet, which is not quite the same thing.]
If they had just wanted us quiet, they would not have produced an increasing series of attacks against us, over the past 18 years. The plan was clearly, for terrorist to attack us, until we were neutered and submissive to them. We would of course have no future support from other nations,
[Like we deserve any?]
for fear of reprisals and for the reason that they would see, we are impotent and cannot help them.
They will pick off the other non-Muslim nations, one at a time. It will be increasingly easier for them. They already hold Spain hostage. It doesn't matter whether it was right or wrong for Spain to withdraw its troops from Iraq. Spain did it because the Muslim terrorists bombed their train and told them to withdraw the troops. Anything else they want Spain to do will be done. Spain is finished.
[Spain withdrew their troops because their newly elected leader had sense enough not to throw good money and men after bad, and was man enough to say, "Look, we backed the wrong horse here. We followed that jug-eared moron into a hole, and we're going to stop digging and climb out of it."]
The next will probably be France. Our one hope on France is that they might see the light and realize that if we don't win, they are finished too, in that they can't resist the Muslim terrorists without us. However, it may already be too late for France. France is already 20% Muslim and fading fast!
[Okay, now here we get into another problem which again requires dissertation more lengthy than I can give it here. Unrestricted Third World immigration into the White world is a problem, granted, but it is one with wide-reaching ramifications that extend far beyond the immediate issues of the Ninth Crusade. The only hope for Europe is that its people and governments will suddenly realize that trains, buses, and planes run two ways, not just one, and that the same transportation that brought undesirable Third World immigrants can take them BACK to their country of origin. Ditto the United States. The key word here is "repatriate" and until we start hearing it from government, we're ALL doomed, not just France. But this is a largely, although not entirely, separate issue from the war in the Middle East.]
If we lose the war, our production, income, exports and way of life will all vanish as we know it.
[Which is exactly what will happen if we "win" it and end up pouring our wealth, our blood, and our labor down the rathole of an impossible empire in the Middle East. The United States' infrastructure is already falling apart; Social Security and Medicare will be gone by the time I hit 65 and America's school children can't read. What do you think this country will be like after a whole generation of trying to conquer and occupy and "nation-build" a completely alien world and transform a 3000 year-old civilization into strip malls and Ronald McDonald?]
After losing, who would trade or deal with us, if they were threatened by the Muslims.
[Who will trade or deal with a swaggering, brutal bully who has been bitten by the world conquest bug and simply demands everything it wants at the point of a gun? How long before the entire world simply has enough and rises up in a united, co-ordinated, World War Two level effort to fight off an destroy an impossible and insupportable tyranny--American tyranny?]
If we can't stop the Muslims, how could anyone else?
[They don't need to be "stopped." They need to be accorded the dignity and respect of an equal if different partner in world affairs. They need to have their lands returned to them and be free to live and worship as they choose. They need to have the Israeli criminals handed over to them for punishment.
And most importantly of all, they need to be gently but firmly and diplomatically persuaded to accept the return and re-assimilation of the millions of their people who we have allowed to invade our own homelands. We do not belong there, and they do not belong here. But that is something that can ONLY be done by negotiation and civil interface with a people and a culture whom we accept as being, if not necessarily "equal" to our own (equal is a loaded word), then a LEGITIMATE world culture and civilization with whom civilized and peaceful contact is possible, as it has been on some occasions in the past.]
The Muslims fully know what is riding on this war, and therefore are completely committed to winning, at any cost. We better know it too and be likewise committed to winning at any cost.
Why do I go on at such lengths about the results of losing? Simple. Until we recognize the costs of losing, we cannot unite and really put 100% of our thoughts and efforts into winning. And it is going to take that 100% effort to win.
[I know mon idiot can't answer, but I'm really curious. Has any of these people ever defined "victory" and thought seriously about what it would entail?]
So, how can we lose the war?
Again, the answer is simple. We can lose the war by "imploding". That is, defeating ourselves by refusing to recognize the enemy and their purpose, and really digging in and lending full support to the war effort. If we are united, there is no way that we can lose. If we continue to be divided, there is no way that we can win!
Let me give you a few examples of how we simply don't comprehend the life and death seriousness of this situation.
President Bush selects Norman Mineta as Secretary of Transportation. Although all of the terrorist attacks were committed by Muslim men between 17 and 40 years of age, Secretary Mineta refuses to allow profiling. Does that sound like we are taking this thing seriously? This is war! For the duration, we are going to have to give up some of the civil rights we have become accustomed to. We had better be prepared to lose some of our civil rights temporarily or we will most certainly lose all of them permanently.
[That rumbling sound you hear from the direction of Charlottesville, Virginia is Thomas Jefferson turning over in his grave. "Those who choose security over liberty will end up losing both, and will deserve neither." Not sure of the exact quote and I'm too lazy to stop in mid-rave and hunt around on Google for 20 minutes trying to find it, but it was one of the Founding Fathers.]
And don't worry that it is a slippery slope. We gave up plenty of civil rights during WWII, and immediately restored them after the victory and in fact added many more since then.
[Mmmm, not really. For one, Federal income tax was imposed in World War One, and it's still here. Among the "civil rights" that have been "added" since World War Two is the non-existent so-called "right to privacy" which the Nine Old Swine have discerned in the Constitution allowing abortion, that kind of thing. As well as hatecrime laws that make some more equal than others. Now it looks like faggots are going to have "marriage rights. But I digress again.]
Do I blame President Bush or President Clinton before him?
[No, we should blame the Jews, who pull the strings on both of them.]
No, I blame us for blithely assuming we can maintain all of our Political Correctness, and all of our civil rights during this conflict and have a clean, lawful, honorable war. None of those words apply to war. Get them out of your head.
Some have gone so far in their criticism of the war and/or the Administration that it almost seems they would literally like to see us lose.
I hasten to add that this isn't because they are disloyal.
[Uh, actually, it is. I for one am DAMNED disloyal to this digraceful cluster-fuck of a regime and tickled pink to be so.
They say that when Henry David Thoreau was in jail for protesting against some ordinance he disliked, a friend visited him and said, "Henry, what are you doing in there?" Thoreau replied, "What are you doing out THERE?" In times like these the only place for any man of honor, decency, integrity, and self-respect is to be on the opposite side of whatever this government of thieves, liars, nincompoops, Jews, neo-con criminals, embezzlers, yea-saying leeches, mindless robots, tub-thumping jackasses and mass murderers is on. The United States government is corrupt and defiled beyond all redemption and our only hope is that the coming generation will somehow recall just what the hell the Founding Fathers included the Second Amendment in the Constitution for. Okay, this is running long, so I'll let this turkey rave on for a bit, because he gets into one very interesting aspect of this whole "War on Terror."]
It is because they just don't recognize what losing means. Nevertheless, that conduct gives the impression to the enemy that we are divided and weakening. It concerns our friends, and it does great damage to our cause.
Of more recent vintage, the uproar fueled by the politicians and media regarding the treatment of some prisoners of war, perhaps exemplifies best what I am saying.
We have recently had an issue, involving the treatment of a few Muslim prisoners of war, by a small group of our military police.
These are the type prisoners who just a few months ago were throwing their own people off buildings, cutting off their hands, cutting out their tongues and otherwise murdering their own people just for disagreeing with Saddam Hussein.
And just a few years ago these same type prisoners chemically killed 400,000 of their own people for the same reason. They are also the same type enemy fighters, who recently were burning Americans, and dragging their charred corpses through the streets of Iraq.
And still more recently, the same type enemy that was and is providing videos to all news sources internationally, of the beheading of American prisoners they held.
Compare this with some of our press and politicians, who for several days have thought and talked about nothing else but the "humiliating" of some Muslim prisoners -- not burning them, not dragging their charred corpses through the streets, not beheading them, but "humiliating" them.
Can this be for real?
The politicians and pundits have even talked of impeachment of the Secretary of Defense.
If this doesn't show the complete lack of comprehension and understanding of the seriousness of the enemy we are fighting, the life and death struggle we are in and the disastrous results of losing this war, nothing can.
To bring our country to a virtual political standstill over this prisoner issue makes us look like Nero playing his fiddle as Rome burned -- totally oblivious to what is going on in the real world.
[Okay, now, I've noticed something about the whole neo-con program in this so-called "War on Terror," and it puzzles me and concerns me. Has anyone besides myself noticed that these neo-cons like Ashcroft and Dershowitz and Horowitz, et. al. are kind of, uh...FUNNY on the subject of torture?
I am still amazed that in America, such an issue even EXISTS. Okay, yeah, we've always tortured prisoners. I myself was beaten by a nigger police sergeant in Washington, DC with a good old fashioned rubber hose, while in Ranger School back in 1972 I took a course called Field Interrogation Techniques. In American prisons, every day White inmates are "disciplined" in a dozen hideous ways, including forced mass sodomy by niggers.
But before the neo-cons it was never, EVER official. Never, EVER legally permissible. Never, EVER done en masse like at Abu Ghraib, but always off in a back room or out behind the latrine in the jungle somewhere. As Boss Tweed said, "The appearance of the law must always be maintained, especially when it's being broken." After all, one of the main cornerstones of the Amurrican myth was that WE WERE THE GOOD GUYS, the guys in the white hats, and we didn't do such nasty things.
One of the major goals of neo-con policy ever since September 11th has been to LEGALIZE and normalize torture as an acceptable part of our legal system. Why? We got along without it for 225 years before 9/11. Why now?
Frankly, I think because, more blatantly than ever before, our country is now run by Jews, and Jews are a very dirty and kinky people. One only had to listen to Alan Dershowitz's long, tender, loving description on CNN of how he wanted it made legal to insert hypodermic needles full of acid into the strong young bodies of Arab boys (his words) to understand that there was something very sick and twisted and perverted moving in the shade there. I am unable to get a clear answer as to whether his proposed Dershowitz Protocols have been accepted and are now being used by U. S., uh, "law enforcement" agencies, but I did find it significant that a number of the mysterious torturers at Abu Ghraib for whom the "recycled hillbillies" were "softening up" the prisoners seem to have been Israelis working as "private security contractors" for the Army.]
Neither we, nor any other country, can survive this internal strife.
Again I say, this does not mean that some of our politicians or media people are disloyal.
[They don't have the balls to be disloyal.]
It simply means that they are absolutely oblivious to the magnitude, of the situation we are in and into which the Muslim terrorists have been pushing us, for many years.
Remember, the Muslim terrorists stated goal is to kill all infidels!
[Uh, no. Their goal is to get Israel off their backs.]
That translates into all non-Muslims -- not just in the United States, but throughout the world.
We are the last bastion of defense.
[We are a nation of ridge-running bush apes with nothing but pork fat between our ears, a nation of people who have become so lazy, so morally flaccid, so brain-dead, self-absorbed, and cowardly that we believe everything that jug-eared moron in the White House and his Jewish handlers tell us, because it's the easy way out. And Americans always take the easy way out. The line of least resistance. We cut any corner we can. We can't be bothered to think for ourselves and resist. I think most Americans know quite well that Jug-Ears is leading us all to hell in a handbasket, and most of us simply view it as a form of entertainment. We sit on our hands, wrapped up in our own personal lives and personal pleasures, waiting for someone else to make a move to we can watch it on TV with a cold one and a bowl of nachos.]
We have been criticized for many years as being 'arrogant'. That charge is valid in at least one respect. We are arrogant in that we believe that we are so good, powerful and smart, that we can win the hearts and minds of all those who attack us, and that with both hands tied behind our back, we can defeat anything bad in the world!
[See previous rave.]
If we don't recognize this, our nation as we know it will not survive, and no other free country in the World will survive if we are defeated.
[Define "free," jackanapes.
Am I free to send my children to an all White school? Am I free to apply for any job I want without having to face a racial and in some cases a gender quota as well? Am I free to keep what I earn without paying at least a third of it to this Moloch in Washington DC who like some pagan Oriental god, now demands that we sacifice young men and young women as well on the altar of Zion? Am I free to take a walk down my street at midnight without the risk of being assaulted and murdered because of the color of my skin by black or brown racists or just plain crackheads who kill me for the seven dollars in my pocket? Am I free to own a firearm without risking arrest almost every day on some little petty gun law or other?
Am I free to run for office on a level playing field without having to compete with the multi-million dollar budgets of the two major shill parties? Am I free to tell the President of the United States exactly what I think of him and his neo-con symbiotes up there without having the secret police pounding on my door and seizing my computer? Am I free not to be forced to speak a foreign language in order to keep a job, as once happened to me? Do I have the right to be free of the constant blaring of Mexican salsa day in and day out, the most boring and tuneless and mediocre music in the world?
Do I have the right to be protected by a local police force who are not corrupt and half insane from the steroids they ingest before they pump iron? Am I free to turn on my television and see something besides degenerate filth? Am I free to NOT have loathsome sexual perversions shoved in my face at every turn? Am I free NOT to have my children seized by the state because I choose to feed them a vegetarian diet? (Ask the Christines about that one.) Oh, I could REALLY go on and on....]
And finally, name any Muslim countries throughout the world that allow freedom of speech, freedom of thought, freedom of religion, freedom of the press, equal rights for anyone -- let alone everyone, equal status or any status for women, or that have been productive in one single way that contributes to the good of the world.
[And you, of course, if you gained the total power which you Religious Right bozos seek--oh, you would NEVER impose your religious beliefs on the rest of us and we could still teach evolution in schools and all buy beer on Sundays? Right? Suuuuure we could...and Prohibition never happened. Right?]
This has been a long way of saying that we must be united on this war or we will be equated in the history books to the self-inflicted fall of the Roman Empire. If, that is, the Muslim leaders will allow history books to be written or read.
If we don't win this war right now, keep a close eye on how the Muslims take over France in the next 5 years or less. They will continue to increase the Muslim population of France and continue to encroach little by little, on the established French traditions. The French will be fighting among themselves, over what should or should not be done, which will continue to weaken them and keep them from any united resolve. Doesn't that sound eerily familiar?
[See raves passim on immigration.]
Democracies don't have their freedoms taken away from them by some external military force. Instead, they give their freedoms away, politically correct piece by politically correct piece.
[Uh, hate to tell you, sunshine, but the United States isn't a democracy. It's a REPUBLIC. You're a Religious Right kook so I know you know the difference when it suits you.]
And they are giving those freedoms away to those who have shown, worldwide, that they abhor freedom and will not apply it to you or even to themselves, once they are in power.
They have universally shown that when they have taken over, they then start brutally killing each other over who will be the few who control the masses. Will we ever stop hearing from the politically correct, about the "peaceful Muslims"?
I close on a hopeful note, by repeating what I said above. If we are united, there is no way that we can lose. I hope now after the election, the factions in our country will begin to focus on the critical situation we are in, and will unite to save our country. It is your future we are talking about! Do whatever you can to preserve it.
After reading the above, we all must do this not only for ourselves, but our children, our grandchildren, our country and the world.
Whether Democrat or Republican, conservative or liberal and that includes the Politicians and media of our country and the free world!
Please forward this to any you feel may want, or NEED to read it. Our "leaders" in Congress ought to read it, too.
There are those that find fault with our country, but it is obvious to anyone who truly thinks through this, that we must UNITE!
[Yes! YES!!! I am CONVINCED. Praise JEBUS, I done seen the light! So we must go forth, our banners stainless and shining, our armor gleaming in God's righteousness, and KILL THEM ALL! Yes, KILL THEM ALL! Especially the little baby terrorists before they grow up into big terrorists! Bomb 'em all, the long and the short and the tall! I wanna kill...KILL...KILL...KILL...you can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant!
Fub-a-tut. Fub-a-tut. Fub tut a. GAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCKKK....]
