Liars, Scoundrels and Traitors
By Henry Makow, Ph.D.
Donald Rumsfeld lied Friday (March 28) when a reporter asked if the US was misleading the public about its casualties in Iraq.
Rumsfeld feigned indignation. Looking straight into the camera, he said something like: "That's a terrible thing to suggest. We always tell the truth."
The official US death toll at the time was about 30. Does he seriously expect us to believe that after only 30 deaths, the U.S. would postpone the assault on Baghdad and bring in an additional 120,000 soldiers?
The Iraqi ambassador to Moscow claimed March 28 that over 500 Americans died in the last 24 hours alone. (http://www.rense.com/general36/700.htm)
In An-Nasiriya alone last Sunday (March 23) as many as two-dozen US soldiers were killed and over 60 wounded, the largest one day loses since the Vietnam War. According to MSNBC:
"'Each unit takes its turn being sacrificed,' said Sgt. Chris Merkle, 31, from Irvine, Ca, 'everybody gets torn apart the same way.' (The report continues:) Nasiriyah ... became a killing field ... with a pair of grisly disasters for U.S. troops. An Army convoy that made a wrong turn drove into an Iraqi ambush that left 12 soldiers dead or captured. In a separate incident, at least nine Marines died in the fighting."

Sound to me like Rumsfeld was lying. A stench of lies emanates from Bush, Blair and their minions.
House of Cards
The American people cannot conceive how traitorous and corrupt their leadership is. For example, last week the Bush Administration failed to approve $11 million funding for the (9-11 Investigating Commission.) This was a minuscule (.00015) part of a $75 billion appropriation for the Iraq war that was passed. (http://www.time.com/time/nation/printout/0,8816,437267,00.html)
Obviously Bush doesn't want us to learn that 9-11 was a CIA-Mossad inside job intended to justify this war. The purpose is to steal Iraqi oil; advance Israel's strategic interests and to destroy Islam. Islam represents a barrier to the totalitarian secular-materialist system (new world order) promoted by world bankers and their lackeys.
The US and Israel are under no threat. While feigning self-defence, both pursue aggression on behalf of the banking-oil cartel and its new world order.
Bush boasts that 46 countries have joined his coalition. He fails to mention that six have no army. In terms of actual fighting, the coalition consists of only three countries: the US, Britain and Australia. See "The Coalition of the willing but Not Able."

Even Canada is sitting out this war. I am Canadian and for once I agree with my government. I have ripped up my membership in the opposition Canadian Alliance Party that thinks we are bad friends and trade will suffer.
Someone talked about the true meaning of friendship on the radio: "When a friend wants to drive inebriated, you try to stop him. The US is drunk with power."
The US is completely isolated and on course for World War Three. China is talking about resisting US "neo imperialism."
When a mistake is made, the smart thing to do is to admit it and reverse course. That takes real courage. To stubbornly persist in hope of saving face only makes matters worse.
When traitors have hijacked your country, patriotism consists in defiance. Someone suggested that Americans should withdraw their savings from banks in protest. This is completely legal. A run on the banks would indeed send a message.
Every day that war continues, more soldiers die. More wives lose their husbands; more children lose their fathers. Americans join the army to serve their country: not to serve Israel, oil and a deranged & criminal master class.
The best way to support the troops is to bring them home.
