DMail: Incredible pictures Earths uncontacted tribes firing arrows

with one comment

The apparent aggression shown by these people is quite understandable. For they are members of one of Earth’s last uncontacted tribes, who live in the Envira region in the thick rainforest along the Brazilian-Peruvian frontier.
Thought never to have had any contact with the outside world, everything about these people is, and hopefully will remain, a mystery.

Largest Swiss Newspaper (Blick) Asks if Bush Was Behind 9/11

Largest Swiss Newspaper (Blick) Asks if Bush Was Behind 9/11

(translated from German into English, but not yet published online in English)

2,973 humans died with the attacks of 9/11. “Bin Laden” and “Al Qaeda”, the Bush clan cried. The world believed themm. In the meantime even scientists doubt the Bush version. Now, Swiss university professors Albert A. Stahel and Daniele Ganser raise new questions.

“Something is not correct”, says strategy expert Stahel in “World Week”, and here he refers to the “incomplete” official US Government 9/11 Report of 2004.

The university professor confirms his criticism in BLICK: “Osama Bin Laden cannot be ‘the large godfather’ behind the attacks. He did not have enough means of communication”.

Dr. Stahel doubts that a passenger airliner crashed into the Pentagon: “For trainee pilots it is actually impossible to crash into the building so exactly. Seven hours after the Twin Towers collapsed, the World Trade Center Building 7 next to it also collapsed. The official version: It burned for a long time. Nothing at all is clear.”

Raising questions along with Stahel is historian Dr. Daniele Ganser, his colleague at the University of Zurich. Dr. Ganser also calls the official US version “a conspiracy theory”.

“There are three theories, which we should treat equally”:

1. “Surprise theory” – Bin Laden and Al Qaeda implemented the attacks.

2. “Let it happen on purpose” – The US Government knew the Al Qaeda plans and did not react in order to legitimize a series of wars.

3. “Made it happen on purpose” – The attacks were actually planned and orchestrated by the Pentagon and/or US secret services.

Ganser: “3,000 humans were sacrificed for strategic interests. The more we research, the more we doubt the Bush version. It is conceivable that the Bush government was responsible. Bush has lied so much already! And we already know that the US government planned an operation in 1962 Operation Northwood that was approved by the Pentagon that would have sacrificed innocent US citizens for the government’s own interests.”

As for Ganser and Stahel: “We only ask questions.”

Better McClellan than a court: doing Bush a favour

leave a comment »

McClellan was the White House spokesman, now he has released a book with some telling tales about Bush. The media are picking up on the revelations that Bush misled the country to war because of the false Intel on Iraq’s WMD program.

Now if you want to get a job as a spokesperson for a company, you will need to sign a non disclosure contract. If you want to work at the upper echelons of government, you will need to be cleared by the secret service and abide by any official laws on confidentiality and official government secrets.

The secret service also have their unwritten and unseen ways of enforcement.
There is also no way to have something published in the West in secret.
Don’t you think McClellan’s book was first vetted by the secret service? So why is he publishing the derisory knowledge of Bush?

First of all it negates the need for an enquiry into whether Bush made the evidence to fit the policy. Now that it is public knowledge.

It is now clear to everyone there is likely to be a call for an investigation into Bush’s Iraq debacle. And doesn’t McClellans revelation defuse what would have been far worse if it were revealed through a court. So it is all designed and measured, as Bush’s sun sets, let’s call it damage limitation.

Israel one state solution: allow Christians to immigrate

with 2 comments

(Editors note: I really regret having written this, at the time, in searching for a solution, I compromised my values, but now this piece is totally out of sync with reality, Gaza changed everything, including the awareness of the whole apartheid / sectarian agenda.)

There is a debate going on about whether the solution for Israel is a one or two state solution. Both Avnery and Olmert (just a few days ago) have said this. One state might mean not having to withdraw the settlements. This is what Rabin Peres were doing 15 years ago. But with the clear realisation that the majority population would soon be Arab, something would need to be done to insure an ethnic western majority (or as in the South African situation, the colonisers remain in charge of business).

Allowing non Jews to immigrate is an option, it would also be a way for Israel to say thank you to its US non Jewish friends that have been loyal. There is a risk of Israel and the US going in different directions anyway. Think of it like when the US left Vietnam or Iran, natives that were loyal to the US also went to the US. so now those that were loyal to Israel would also be allowed to immigrate to Israel. It would take care of the demography problem (too many Arabs) It would cater to so-called Christian Zionists, it would revitalize the empty immigration to Israel. Finally it would prevent a massive anti Israeli backlash from the recession headed US. Because there would be so many US citizens in Israel too.

With regard to allowing non Jews: How many of Israels population is anyway assimilated. Even if they think they are not. Put them next to a Lubavitcher and they look assimilated. This would also prevent Israel being hijacked by the large Russian community, which in the absence of US support is a possibility.

If such a radical rethink is going on, we could also get some pleasant surprises in the way of social and family law reforms.

If the US wins in Iraq, expect more war.

leave a comment »

If the US won in Iraq it would mean more wars.
It would be the proof that imperialistic wars can work.

The US would continue selling it’s wealth to the highest bidder. And the military industrial complex would pursue more profit and adventures.
All the contractors like Halliburton, would dictate foreign policy. And furnish the presidents speechwriters.

They must assume foreign resources can feed the US population.
It seems true the US casualty rate is diminishing. But they are official figures. There are plenty of resistance videos circulating showing attacks that are never reported.

Not that I look at them, once is enough.

Imagine the big wigs trying to make strategic decisions, when the economic system is tottering.

There must be plenty of dissent at the top. There must also be 60 and 70 year old men who have never known any other way to be other than to conquer.
In conclusion, the likelihood of the US reaaching a peaceful occupation inIraq seems like zero. Israel still has armed resistance amongst a proportionally much smaller enemy, and that is after 60 years. And Syria, Iran or any other adversary can always up the armed ante.

Time for rescue, time for Carter

leave a comment »

Carter was just the only one to present, there wasn’t any alternative. When it became clear the white house was but a lot of banditos, and that they don’t have a clue. The only ‘elder’ to offer sanity was Carter. Whatever he is doing is measured, he is not trying to scupper anything, just to do some healing.

When he mentions Israel’s arsenal, it is with intention (either to calm them, or to bring them to the negotiating table).

Let’s be grateful for Carter’s presence. We at least know he wants peace.
