I sincerely wish all those young American men and women didn't have to die or suffer life-long ailments just because the arrogant Bush cabal is so damn short-sighted, but unfortunately the soldiers will continue to be cannon fodder for the elite. This article so simply demonstrates what billions of wasted "intelligence" tax dollars can't seem to: "no nation that launched a war against another sovereign nation ever won. And every nationalist-based insurgency against a foreign occupation ultimately succeeded." [quote from CIA veteran Milt Bearden]
Today's Steve Duin column ran without a news story to tie it down, so I expect most folks are either confused or getting their news from indymedia...

This report ties in with another that claims the train was not carrying innocent industrial cargoes but hundreds of tons of explosive materials Iran was smuggling into Afghanistan via the Shiite city of Herat to be used by Iranian saboteurs and agents for guerrilla attacks on US troops and the forces of President Hamid Karzai, as well for supplying the Taleban in their Kandahar stronghold.

I just happened to pick up Adler's book "Canaries in the Mineshaft" at Laughing Horse coupla months ago. Bought it used. Inside there are a number of excellent essays. One of them, originally published in 1970, is on the largely disreputable history of the National Guard. The essay, "But Ohio, Well, I Guess That's One State Where They Elect to Lock and Load: The National Guard," was written to provide background on the shootings at Kent State that year, but it might as well have been written yesterday since it is absolutely topical given the current discussion on our AWOL president.

Appeal of DPRK Supported
Pyongyang, February 18 (KCNA) -- The All Anti-Imperialists Wishing to Build Solidarity with the DPRK and the U.S. Group for the Study of Songun Politics issued a joint statement on Feb. 7 in support of the appeal of the joint meeting of the DPRK government, political parties and organizations.
Greatly pleased to hear the appeal of the joint meeting calling for paving a wide avenue for independent reunification through national cooperation under the banner of the nation-first spirit, we extend congratulations to all the Korean people upholding and following the Songun idea of Kim Jong Il, brilliant commander of Mt. Paektu and iron-willed supreme commander, the statement said.
It went on:
The Korean people are hewing the path of national reunification despite the aggressors' moves for a war and interference, after turning out as an invincible independent force against imperialism in single-hearted unity and in a do-or-die spirit by putting arms above a hammer or sickle. We support the Workers' Party of Korea and the National Democratic Front of South Korea.
We defend the principle of the right to self-determination of all the nations and support the south Korean people in their anti-U.S. struggle.
Four videos from the resistance have been made available online for those who wish to download them.

Same Sex Marriage Or?
During street protests after the U.S. government's invasion of Iraq in March 2003, police in Portland, Oregon, became brutal in their treatment of activists on the street. Furious about the unfair, pro-cop, pro-violence coverage of these events by the local corporate media, media activists put together a video showing the real story and gave it to the corporate media. Corporate media was very selective in what it chose to air, however, and this video exposes how they still told lies even when given the truth in a clear, easily presentable form. Corporate media is beyond redemption.
A unique take on Bush's August 21, 2003, fund raising trip to the Pacific Northwest of the U.S., this video isn't just another document of another local protest. With a montage of video and interviews from the Seattle and Portland Bush protests, this film illustrates a brief but penetrating analysis of the Bush nightmare by William Rivers Pitt. "A million dollars Later" exposes the A21 conspiracy by the Portland police to take vengeance on peace encampment activists. "A Million Dollars Later" is not focused on what happened to a few white radicals in Portland; it is a film about how fascism can happen here. And it's a film about fighting back.

is US at it again? having just lauched one coup in Iraq, it now covertly backs another. it acnt claim Aristide is a terrorist, hence the covert action
In his own words, Kerry proves that the United States is under the control of a foreign power. While your roads and schools crumble, your money flows in tribute to Israel. Your children die for Israel's wars. And when Israel comits a deception attack on our people, the US Government covers up for them. LBJ ordered the USS Liberty investigation to conclude accident, and the US Government classified the evidence that linked the arrested Israeli spies to 9-11. These and other incidents (the fake radio tranmitter that lured Reagan to bomb Libya) do not paint a pretty picture as to who is really in charge of this nation.

I have a question. Why did the US Government classify the evidence linking arrested Israeli spies to 9-11. as was admtted to by a US Government official on Carl Cameron's four-part story on Israeli spying on Fox News?
Some of you may have seen a short article in the Portland Mercury two weeks ago regarding Katz's promise from October 29 to have her security clearance to review FBI-classified files being generated by Portland Police within three months. That deadline is way past and the Mercury indicated the Mayor still has not done anything.
At the same time the article came out the League of Women Voters, one of the groups which has been consistently testifying before Council for more oversight of the Joint Terrorism Task Force, was drafting this letter, which went out late last week.
The French publication which broke the story that U.S. law enforcement had cracked an Israeli spy network is sticking to its guns amidst an international backlash. But the FBI wants to cover up the story.
"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information." -- US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11. link to Israeli spy ring: http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/spyring.html
Contrary to the screed in this article, attempting to spin the Israeli spy story as rumor started by Arabs, the fact is that the story of the spy ring, the arests, and the classification of the evidence by the US Government, were all reported on Fox News.Israel's long history of deceptions to trick the US into fighting Israel's enemies has come back to haunt them.
