Major General Smedley D. Butler: War Is A Racket!

War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small "inside" group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes. In World War I, a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States. That many admitted their huge blood gains on their income tax returns. How many other war millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows. How many of these war millionaires and billionaires shouldered a rifle? How many of them dug a trench? How many of them knew what it meant to go hungry in a rat-infested dug-out? How many of them spent sleepless, frightened nights, ducking shells and shrapnel and machine gun bullets? How many of them parried a bayonet thrust of an enemy? How many of them were wounded or killed in battle?

Now, only the Story About BP's Mistakes is Running Away!

Last week, "our" government announced, as front-page news on the "Times", that 4.9 million "runaway" barrels of oil had poured into the gulf since April of this year, and that, according to an
"official" government report, all but 26% of it was now 'miraculously' gone. Personally, I have always distrusted such miracles, unless the disciples of our Lord Jesus have been order by our Master himself to give our rotten politicians a way out of their enormous and heinous sins. That aside, there is absolutely no way in which I would sanction this Times story as even potentially true! Of course, given the strange, and incestuous relationship between the Obama administration and BP in the Gulf, including suppressing or discrediting scientific research (check JeffRense's URL for the Truth, which is, as they say, "out there"), for the REAL Truth. Jeff's huge site is essentially a treasure trove of the REAL truth, and Jeff is a National Treasure. The "newspapers", including the "New York Times, only exists to obfuscate what little of the REAL Truth is still permitted to exist in our troublesome existence.

Hidden Intelligence Operation Behind the Wikileaks Release of "Secret" Documents.

Don't believe that the "alleged" leak hyped by Wiki-Leaks, represents the truth of what is now REALLY going on in Afghanistan! "Sensitive" documents, my ass! Far from an honest leak, these documents represent calculated "disinformation" by the US, and perhaps Israeli and Indian intelligence agencies. One clue is that the papers reveal very little that is really sensitive: As a former Intelligence Operations Officer of our 4th US Armored Division in Goeppingen, I know how to separate the wheat from the chaff, and that's all it is: Chaff to feed the gullible morons who really believe that the Obama Administration would stand idly by while the truth about our abysmal war in Afghanistan is presented on a platter to a naive and credulous citizenry. The leaked documents claim that Osama bin Laden, who was reported dead three years ago by the late Pakistan military intelligence agency, ISI, is still alive, conveniently keeping the myth alive for the Obama Administration's "War on Terror", after most Americans had forgotten the original "reason" the Bush Administration 'allegedly' invaded Afghanistan to pursue the Saudi Bin Laden for the 9/11 attacks.

BP has finally made EVERYTHING Right! -Ding -Dong -The Witch is Dead!

YES: It's all true!, just like our tremendous victory over the "evil" Taliban, over whom we are currently victorious in Afghanistan! Sorry, for a very brief moment, I was tempted to fall in line with our government story. As yo'al are aware by know, they have always been right, and the GOOD news about the complete restoration of our gulf coast is now only one or two days ahead. What's one or two mystery wells, which are still spewing oil and deadly "corexin" into our formerly pristine gulf beaches among friends? Can't we all get along? If you really want the truth, which, as we know, "is out there". You need to proceed to the giant "JeffRense" site. Jeff has meticulously assembled all available information about this horrible and perverse befouling of our once pristine beaches. I recommend that you only check Jeff's site if you REALLY want the truth, and if you can handle the naked and disturbing information on his site. The GOOD news is that BP CEO Tony Hayward will receive a multi-million dollar "golden parachute" for his mighty effort, and be replaced by Bob Dudley, together with an incredibly broad and powerful propaganda campaign. More good news: The New York Times has an important message for you: "The government is expected to announce on Wednesday that three-quarters of the oil from the Deepwater Horizon leak has already evaporated, dispersed, been captured or otherwise eliminated, and that much of the rest is so diluted that it does not seem to pose much additional risk of harm. I know that all of you will sleep better tonight, just as I did in Vietnam, when our MACV cheat-sheet advised me and my team that we are winning in Vietnam!

Do YOU want to die in a Nuclear "Holocaust" ??

Why not, why indeed not: But the US and "our allies" are preparing to launch a nuclear war against Iran, which will have devastating consequences: This military adventure, in the real sense of the word threatens the future of humanity: In the words of Mordechai Vanunu - "The Israeli government is preparing to use nuclear weapons in its next war with the Islamic world. Here, where I live, people often talk of the Holocaust. But each and every nuclear bomb is a Holocaust in itself. It can kill, devastate cities, destroy entire peoples." Realities are literately turned upside down. In a twisted logic, a "humanitarian war" using tactical nuclear weapons, which, according to "expert scientific opinion" are "harmless to the surrounding civilian population" is upheld as a means to protecting Israel and the Western World from a nuclear attack. America's mini-nukes with an explosive capacity of up to six times a Hiroshima bomb are upheld by "authoritative scientific opinion" are "harmless to the surrounding civilian population" is upheld as a means of protecting Israel and the Western World from a nuclear attack. I believe that I could easily rebut this strained logic, but at the moment, I have not been able to find my old book of "Grimm's Fairy Tales", which I used to read as a child. Perhaps someone can send me a copy - but send at least one copy to our US government - they need it more than I do!

Afghanistan Militants use $26 Software to Intercept US Predator Drones

Investigative journalists Siobhan Gorman, Yochi Dreazen and August Cole have disclosed that our US Government has known about this serious weakness of our "Predator" drones since the US campaign in Bosnia in the 1990's. There goes the pipe-dream of our pentagon war lords to rule the entire world by remote control! Nevertheless, this serious problem was allowed to fester. After all, the "Obama" administration has come to rely heavily on these unmanned lethal drones in any number of "Imperial slaughterhouses" which might be used to bring about a "New World Order", and so far, they have been very effective to frighten low-tech societies, which have so far shuddered after witnessing America's imperial might. After all, our occupying armies, like the ancient Roman legionnaires, have always been invincible! (SO FAR). But, as the Journal also reported, the stolen video feeds also indicate that our enemies continue to find simple ways of counteracting sophisticated American military technologies. While wags in the "Pentagon Hive" may actually believe that "resistance is futile", unencrypted video feeds from drones in Afghanistan and Pakistan appear to have been compromised.
