Shock and Awe Killings

...And the count is still counting, and the count is still running;

(by informatron: 7 March 2009)

This is in celebration of the sixth year anniversary of Shock and Awe.

As we return from our three-day celebrations of 13 February marking the 64th anniversary of the terrorist carpet bombing of one of the greatest cultural centres of Northern Europe; we have not forgotten the 6th anniversary of Shock and Awe: That terrorist bombing of one the greatest cultural centres of the Arab World.

Since March of 2003, the USA has inflicted the equivalent of THREE HUNDRED AND THIRTY THREE (sic) September 11 attacks on a country smaller than California, that is FIVE 911 attacks for each and every month over the past six years running.

And the count is still counting, and the count is still running. Shock and Awe. Terrorism by another name. The last throes of an empire in total collapse.

Reason enough for a new and civilized Former USA to immediately withdraw troops, punish the guilty before the new president becomes tarnished by the guilt of unspeakable crimes, and make reparations.

Pay attention!

Dresden 1945 did not have a military garrison, most of the industry was in the outskirts and not in the targeted city centre, and the cultural significance of the city should have precluded the Allies from bombing it.

Never-the-less, that splendid baroque city, centre to the arts and the learned, saw 1,300 British and American heavy bombers drop over 3,900 tons of high-explosives and incendiary devices. And like the American nuclear bombs thrown on Heroshima and Nagasaki, this bombing of Dresden was by all measures a crime against humanity.

German Holocaust deniers say that only 35.000 persons were killed in Dresden in those days of February, but the real figure for all technical reasons is considerably higher. In 1955 former West German chancellor Konrad Adenauer stated: "On 13 February 1945, the attack on the city of Dresden, which was overcrowded with refugees, claimed about 250.000 victims.” Today historians confirm that the number killed in Dresden is closer to 500,000 dead.

Like Dresden in 1945, Baghdad in 2005 suffered Anglo American terrorist air strikes and cruise missile attacks. By acts of unprovoked aggression the city is now a destroyed hulk, devoid of its population, and polluted forever by American depleted uranium. Untold thousands killed.

Baghdad, bombed!

The City of Haroun Al Rashid, The City of the Arabian Nights, Home to the Magic Lamp of Aladin, The City of Living Poetry and Music, bombed between the 19th of March and 5 April 2003, when invading USA barbarians (yes, barbarians, there can be no other name to describe them) entered to sack the city, to rape, torture, and kill the innocent people of Iraq.

They burned our historic archives, they looted our great libraries and museums, they desecrated our places of worship, our saints and our shrines, our ancient mosques, and our churches. Humanity’s treasures from Ancient Babylon, Uruk, and Sumeria stolen. Temples and treasures plundered. Like Dresden, our historic monuments, destroyed forever by American bombs and fires.

Like Dresden, Heroshima, and Nagasaki, future generations everywhere in the world will never forget Baghdad, and the innocent people of Iraq.

But stop!

The purpose here is not to mourn the dead, nor even to remember the death and destruction. The purpose is to celebrate the carnage, the injustice, the atrocities, and cruelties perpetuated by the USA.

The purpose is to celebrate the death of the United States because the lip service it provides to the virtues of its constitution is no longer credible. FUSA is not only financially bankrupt but morally bankrupt as well.

The purpose is to call on The Free Peoples of the World to hold those responsible for the greatest mass killings in the history of humanity.

Like Dresden, Baghdad has its share of holocaust deniers.

National Geographic researcher Bijal Trivedi stated that "Civilian (Iraqi) casualties did occur, but the strikes, for the most part, were surgical.”

On the web site of Iraq Body Count, a project of the UK Oxford Research Group, puts Iraqi deaths to date at only 90,000 to 99,000 civilian killed attributed to the actions of US-led forces. These are the lowest figures ever published.

Iraq Body Count data is drawn from “cross-checked media reports, hospital, morgue, NGO and official figures.” God knows how they cook their books since the morgues and hospitals have been ordered not to release deaths information.

But even these meager findings are disputed by both the U.S. military and the puppet Iraqi government. Lieutenant-Colonel Steve Boylan, the spokesman for the US military once said of Iraq Body Count: "I don't know how they are doing their methodology and can't talk to how they calculate their numbers," as well as "we do everything we can to avoid civilian casualties in all of our operations."

USA Lieutenant General Tommy Franks said, when he was still head of US Central Command, and responsible for the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan: "We don't do body counts." As it were: civilian deaths do not factor in USA military calculations.

And so, to establish the numbers killed by the USA led forces, we must rely on established techniques from the science of epidemiology to estimate the “body counts” that the USA military “does not do”. Deaths must be estimated by population sampling and social survey methodologies just as in the study of deadly diseases of pandemic proportions.

In 2006 the prime medical journal Lancet published a study by Johns Hopkins University researchers who estimated by epidemiological techniques, the number of Iraqi killed by the USA invaders to be 654,965 deaths.. The authors of the Lancet study calculated a range of 392,979 to 942,636 Iraqi deaths by the term ending in June 2006.

In September 2007, ORB (Opinion Research Business), an independent polling agency located in London, published estimates of the total war casualties in Iraq since the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 through to August 2007, at over 1.2 million deaths (1,220,580) within a range between 733,158 to 1,446,063 deaths.

This ORB estimate was based on a random survey of 1,720 adults, out of which 1,499 responded, in fifteen of the eighteen governorates within Iraq, between August 12 and August 19, 2007.

On 28 January 2008, ORB published an update based on additional work carried out in rural areas of Iraq. Some 600 additional interviews were undertaken and as a result of this the death estimate was revised down to 1,033,000 with a given range of 946,000 to 1,120,000.

Needless to say, no one paid attention to these staggering but credible figures. AT THE VERY LEAST the USA killed a million Iraqis.

On 18 September 2007 Media Lens published an article entitled "The Media Ignore Credible Poll Revealing 1.2 Million Violent Deaths In Iraq", the article goes on to say: “…despite its obvious significance, the ORB study has been almost entirely blanked by the US-UK media.

“At time of writing, four days after the findings were announced, the poll has been mentioned in just one national UK newspaper - ironically, the pro-war Observer. It has been ignored by the Guardian and the Independent."

The World Socialist Website criticized the media for under reporting this survey.

According to wikipedia on the media coverage of the ORB study: A week after its release, in the USA, of the leading newspapers, only the Los Angeles Times carried the story, although National Public Radio (NPR) did a piece on it the following Tuesday.

In the UK, BBC TV buried ORB study results in 81 words at the end of a 34 second segment about a bombing in Baghdad on its flagship news magazine Newsnight.

On the BBC website, it was described in 131 words tagged on at the end of an unrelated article with no mention of the study in the title. In both the Newsnight and BBC online pieces the ORB figure was obfuscated with a figure purporting to measure only reported civilian deaths, as most likely a small fraction of total deaths.

The only report in the UK press was in The Observer where it was appended to a story on Alan Greenspan's saying Iraq was about oil.

The ORB update published January 2008, was reported in one UK newspaper: The Guardian on 19 March 2008 on an obscure page of its website, appearing as a correction entitled: What is the real death toll in Iraq?

The title paragraph states: “…no one knows how many Iraqis have been killed in the five years since the invasion. Estimates put the toll at between 100,000 and one million, and now a bitter war of numbers is raging.”

As if the story is about the battle of numbers rather than the story about Iraqis killed by the American led forces.

To be fair the article is well worth reading because it covers at length a number of other studies of the death rates in Iraq which are not mentioned here because of their obvious methodological flaws and purposeful under-estimates of the extent of the Iraqi holocaust.

Many holocaust deniers believe the lies they are being told: That civilian deaths are not caused by American led forces but by foreign fighters, sectarian infighting, car bombs going off in market places, or suicide belts exploding amidst crowds of pilgrims. Such deaths it is argued should be factored out in the tally of killings. But these Iraqis have died because the United States decided to invade their country.

Besides, just as there was a convenient floury of videotaped beheadings of Westerners just as the Abu Gharib torture photos broke, the truth is that such deadly operations have been found to be setups by American led forces to blacken the name and catch the wind out of the strong Iraqi resistance.

British special forces operatives have been captured in Basra dressed in local Arab garb with explosives in their car. And stories have leaked out of cars being booby trapped by operatives while drivers are interrogated inside police stations, to fabricate unwitting suicide bombers as they drive home through crowded markets.

Never-the-less, the March 2008 Guardian article goes on to say: “… no one knows how many Iraqis have died. We do know that more than two million have fled abroad. Another 1.5 million have sought safety elsewhere in Iraq. We know that the combined horror of car bombs, suicide attacks, sectarian killing and disproportionate US counter-insurgency tactics and air strikes have produced the worst humanitarian catastrophe in today's world. But the exact death toll remains a mystery.”

Well we do know the death toll. It is not a mystery.

Not counting the American war against the people of Afghanistan, and not counting the killings from all the surreptitious wars perpetuated by the USA and its agents against the peoples of Palestine, Somalia, Congo, Sudan, Lebanon, The Balkans, and others, since September 11 2001; it is an established fact that the United States is directly responsible for the killing of over one million people. And this only over the period of five and a half years since March 2003 to September 2008. And the count is counting.

I leave it to others to work out the total monthly death tally for all America’s ongoing wars. All those wars contrived under the guise of America’s Global War On Bogus Terror, in the name of that other holohoax self inflicted wound: September Eleven Inside job.

Roughly speaking, at a rate of one million people killed over a period of 66 months, the USA has been slaughtering the Iraqi people at the rate of 15,000 killed per month.

Fifteen thousand Iraqis killed per month at the bare minimum.

Carnage most heinous of mass killings in human history, perpetuated by the FUSA on the people of Iraq. Equivalent to Five September 11 attacks per month for five and a half consecutive years on a country smaller than the State of California.

For Iraq alone the USA shall live in the shame of mass murder for generations to come, unless USA President Obama immediately withdraws all US troops,from all theaters, and punishes those responsible, and pays reparations in land and treasure to the victims of the Zionist Neocon American holocaust victims.

Fifty-nine years ago, on the evening of February 13, 1945, an orgy of genocide and barbarism

Thank you for that, Informatron, a much-needed reminder of what is actually at stake, death and dying and a fitting tribute to those whose lives were taken simply because they were Muslims. Lyrical in tone and factually sound, it will strengthen the determination of most readers never to remain passive again.

Iranian president declares his country a space and nuclear power
19:36 | 13/ 03/ 2009

TEHRAN, March 13 (RIA Novosti) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Friday that pressure from Western powers trying to keep Iran in economic isolation have in fact spurred the country to become a space and nuclear power.

"Had you not been bad-tempered and blocked the way, the Iranian nation would not have been present in space, and would not have become a nuclear power," Fars news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying at the inauguration ceremony of a natural gas deposit in the Bushehr province.

Iran put its first communications satellite, Omid (Hope), into a near-Earth orbit on February 2. The research satellite was carried into orbit by a home-made launch vehicle, Safir (Messenger). Iranian Communications Minister Mohammad Soleimani earlier said that the country's scientists were working on the creation of four new satellites to be placed into near-Earth orbit.

The Iranian president said Western powers are unable to stop Iran's technological and scientific progress with their "spiteful actions." He also called the international economic sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program a "grave blunder."

"Of course, we believe that the Iranian nation can tread the path to progress under God's mercy," he said.

Western powers led by the United States, along with Israel, have accused Tehran of attempting to develop nuclear weapons and ballistic missile technology for their delivery. Iran says it needs its nuclear program for electric power generation, and its missile program for space exploration.

This was one answer to Shock and Awe and an awesome one at that.

The Iraqi wars were utterly pointless. That will no doubt be the judgement of history. The martyred people of Iraq will arise from their ashes, grieving, inconsolable, yet heads held high. Unlike boot-licking Japs or Germans, and bloodless though they were, they resisted the enemy with whatever came to hand. They destroyed his army, his military hardware and turned him into the laughing stock of the world. If the planet today is in a pre-revolutionary state we owe it to them. Nothing against the Vietnamese, they were superb. But the Iraqis went even further. They destroyed the world of injustice we intimately knew and invited us to replace it with something better.

yes, thanks informatron for the submission... (i'm trying to find a working contact form/gadget for the blog so that submissions can be facilitated)

partisan against army wins ~1/8 times. Iraq is no exception. Iraqi Resistance eliminated the grandest murder machine ever built with RPG (rucni protiletadlovy granat = hand antiaircraft grenade) and Katusas, a weapon whose mere mention of the name makes Germans still piss their panties.

the USA occupation losses are a subject to some debate but based on pentagon's own releases regarding troop "surging" and rotation, some 350K USA troops have been taken out of battle in the 6 yr long war. 3 yrs ago USA admitted to 70K troops actively dying from DU, a defacto nuclear weapon used by USA invading hoards against Iraqi civilians. so there's about 60-80K dead among the 350K USA troops removed from the USA terror menace.

the fact that pentagon admits to 3000 deaths is completely immaterial. the same people that publish this lie also say that USA does not torture.

and this is precisely why the entire West war machine has been incapable of striking anyone but defenceless civilians and preferably children.

historically speaking, the West pretty brave white peoples have NEVER EVER attacked anyone armed. the West vampires only target with tanks, by policy, children armed with stones and hunt at night civilians with missiles shot from choppers. that's the way the West white saxons are. they require 1:10 or better advantage otherwise they're reduced to gibbering imbecilic streaks of dirty excremental slime, much like in Stalingrad when the German cunts were forced out out of their tanks and go 1:1 with Russian defenders. the West watched then division after division of their noble warriors disappear in the ruins of Stalingrad exactly like the West has just watched their legions disappear in Afghanistan and Iraq.

when the West needs to attack someone armed, they build a proxy like Georgia sicced on Russia in 2008; Afghanistan, sicced on Russia in 1980; Germany, sicced on Russia in 1941.

and this is precisely why Iran, Syria, and Venezuela have been untouched by the West despite the 7 yr ongoing vulgarisms and obscene threats. this is why the West tries to proxy up Moldova, Poland, Georgia against Russia; Taiwan against China; Nigeria army against Russia's firms; and Colombia against the Bolivian and Venezuelan movement against the West rape there.

and finally, this is precisely why the West populace, now disarmed by false ops, is going to be the West vampire's last victim. but who could argue that the yank baboon doesn't deserve its own medicine?

If I could play the guitar I would put it to music and sing on every street corner, to salute the resistance for keeping the Flame of Miss Liberty alive and well for all of us.

Even China is beginning to stir from its sleep like a lazy cat, Iran calling the shots against all that ZioFaschist mumbo jumbo of the super race.

"But the Iraqis went even further. They destroyed the world of injustice we intimately knew and invited us to replace it with something better."

That is the best salute to the Iraqi resistance, not forgetting the Afghanis and all of us free peoples around the world.

Obamistan (FUSA, Former USA) is trying desperately to get others to fight along side their cowardly ranks, but the financial collapse is not helping. And this morning we hear the another batch of 20 NATO trucks destroyed in Peshawar.

All it will take now is a couple more blows to the underbelly for us usher in The New Dawn of justice, health, prosperity for all, Nation by Nation.

Cuba, Venezuela to Host Russian Bombers

MOSCOW – The Interfax news agency has reported that a Russian Air Force chief says Venezuela's president has offered an island as a temporary base for strategic Russian bombers.

The agency reported that chief of staff of Russia's long range aviation Maj. Gen. Anatoly Zhikharev said Saturday that President Hugo Chavez had offered "a whole island with an aerodrome, which we can use as a temporary base for strategic bombers."

The agency quoted Zhikharev as saying, "If there is an corresponding political decision, then the use of the island ... by the Russian Air Force is possible."

Interfax reported he said earlier that Cuba could be used to host the long-range planes.

Get ready FUSA folks. You're surrounded!

Turkey to use lira in trade with Iran
Pres TV - 15.03.2009

Turkey's Foreign Trade Minister Kursad Tuzmen has said Ankara will soon begin trading with neighboring Iran in Turkish currency, the lira.

Tuzmen said Turkey has completed the necessary structural work to begin trade with Iran and Russia in its local currency, Press TV correspondent in Ankara Mehdi Gholizadeh reported.

He stressed that the plan will considerably increase Ankara's trade with Tehran and Moscow and that it will solve the problems caused by trade in foreign currencies.

Tuzmen said Turkey's President Abdullah Gul discussed the plan with Iranian and Russian leaders during his official visits to Tehran and Moscow.

Gul traveled to Iran in early March to attend a summit of the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO).

He held separate meetings with his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

Iran and Turkey, along with Pakistan, are founding members of ECO, an intergovernmental international organization that seeks to provide a platform to discuss ways to improve development and promote trade and investment opportunities.

The President of Iran's Chamber of Commerce, Mohammad Nahavandian, said in January that Iran could change the trade corridor for European goods it imports from the Persian Gulf countries to Turkey to increase trade between Tehran and Ankara.

South American example now being nicely followed by giants in Asia as well.

Russia to oust Western oil and gas companies from Nigeria

10.03.2009 Source: Pravda.Ru URL:

The West is seriously concerned about a possibility for Russia to conquer African energy resources. It goes about Nigeria and its natural gas, first and foremost. However, there are too many problems connected with the country which make the development of its energy resources quite complicated. It may just so happen that the Nigerian game may not be worth the Russian candle.

Western countries are concerned that Russia is determined to force them back from Nigeria – a key energy supplier in the world. This African country is one of the basic suppliers of oil to Europe. In addition, it is also the fifth most important exporter of black gold to the United States.

Enormous reserves of natural gas were found in the country not so long ago. The West was hoping that the new reserves would let it weaken the energy dependence on Russia, but Gazprom, Russia’s gas monopoly, was the first one to snatch up the tasty bit.

Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin had a meeting with Nigerian President Umaru Yar’adua. Putin promised him a more lucrative contract and said that Russia could do better in the development of the nation’s energy resources. The West is now concerned that Gazprom may force Western companies that already work in Nigeria out.

Nigeria is not one peaceful state on the map of Africa. The country suffers from regular religious conflicts between the Muslims and the Christians. The largest one of them took place in September 2001.

Corruption is another major problem. The country is corrupted entirely. To add more fuel to the fire, 140 million Nigerians of the nation’s 150-million-strong population live from hand to mouth spending less than two dollars a day. The most populated African country is 14th largest country on the continent. The problem of overpopulation and the shortage of food has been getting more and more serious in Nigeria lately. The inflow of petrodollars has resulted in the collapse of other sectors of economy – agriculture, for instance.

Nigeria became one of the most developed African nations owing to billion-dollar foreign investments. Nigeria became Africa’s third country after Algeria and South African Republic that launched its own space satellite (with Russia’s help).

The growth of oil prices during the recent years did not result in an economic boost in the country. Moreover, the people receive no income from the national oil industry under the conditions of total corruption. A third of the nation’s adult population is illiterate, and is unable to find a normal job. To crown it all, about ten million people of Nigeria’s population are infected with AIDS.

Nigeria is the world’s sixth largest oil-mining nation in the world. However, a quarter of its oil was lost due to various separatist groups, which put the nation on the eighth position.

A variety of rebel groups, not to mention the local pirates, endanger the activities of Western companies working in Nigeria. One of them is especially active at this point – the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta. Egbesu Boys of Africa follow similar slogans in their struggle. Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force is the most ‘famous’ of the rebel movements. Its members attacked a naval base of the country in October 2006 and recently slew the chairman of US oil company Baker Hughes.

"Unfortunately for the people of the world everything is going according to the New World Order Plan. But what is this New World Order Plan? In a nutshell the Plan is this. The Dark Agenda of the secret planners of the New World Order is to reduce the world's population to a "sustainable" level "in perpetual balance with nature" by a ruthless Population Control Agenda via Population and Reproduction Control. A Mass Culling of the People via Planned Parenthood, toxic adulteration of water and food supplies, release of weaponised man-made viruses, man-made pandemics, mass vaccination campaigns and a planned Third World War. Then, the Dark Agenda will impose upon the drastically reduced world population a global feudal-fascist state with a World Government, World Religion, World Army, World Central Bank, World Currency and a micro-chipped population. In short, to kill 90% of the world's population and to control all aspects of the human condition and thus rule everyone, everywhere from the cradle to the grave."

Is this what we're actually fighting, population cull so that a handful can thrive? How absolutely awful!

Greek extremists threaten more bombings after Citibank attacks
5 days ago

ATHENS (AFP) — A Greek extremist group known for its violent attacks has threatened to carry out more bombings in the wake of two recent strikes targeting US banking group Citibank.

In an eight-page proclamation published in Greek weekly Pontiki, far-left group Revolutionary Struggle said its aim remained to foment "revolution" and use the global economic crisis against capitalism.

"We intend to continue timed (bomb) attacks," the proclamation said.

"We need to rid ourselves for good of all the scum of economic and political power so that humanity can free itself from these criminals.

"We must create (a mass movement) here and now so that the crisis can become the system's tomb," it added.

Greece's most dangerous far-left organisation earlier admitted responsibility for two attacks against Citibank targets in north Athens that caused no injuries.

On Monday, the group detonated a bomb outside a Citibank branch in the northern Athens suburb of Psychiko that caused significant damage.

Last month, it placed a powerful car bomb outside the bank's Athens headquarters that was defused by police.

The bomb, consisting of two clocks, batteries and fertiliser-based explosives packed in five gas cylinders, was hidden in the car trunk and could have taken out the building had it detonated, police said at the time.

Revolutionary Struggle is best known for a rocket attack on the American embassy in 2007 and features on the European Union's list of terrorist groups.

Greece has seen a wave of attacks by far-left groups following the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old by a policeman in December that also sparked protests and street violence around the country.

Russia proposes creation of global super-reserve currency
Text size

March 16, 2009
Russia suggests the G20 summit in London in April should start establishing a system of managing the process of globalization and consider the possibility of creating a supra-national reserve currency or a “super-reserve currency.” The Russian Federation’s proposals for ways out of the ongoing financial and economic crisis and for a post-crisis order of the world financial system have been published on the Kremlin’s website. The proposals have been dispatched to the leadership of the G20 countries, the CIS and international organizations.

“The current global economic crisis points to the need for discarding standard approaches and requires the adoption of collective decisions, agreed at the international level and geared to creating a system of globalization process management,” the document says. Russia suggests “acting with the maximum resolution in order to restore sustainable economic development and also confidence and stability in the financial markets.”

The Russian side believes the summit should seek and achieve accord on the main parameters of a new world financial system. It suggests calling an international conference that would produce the basic parameters of a world financial architecture and adopt international conventions regarding a new financial world order.

A d v e r t i s e m e n t

Russia believes that the “obsolete mono-polar structure of the world economy should give way to a system based on cooperation by several major centers.”

In the sphere of control and supervision Russia suggests drafting and adopting an international agreement setting global standards of control and supervision in the financial sector – a Standard Universal Regulatory Framework (SURF).

Russia calls for reforming the international currency and financial system with the aim to strengthen its stability and control. In that connection the Russian side suggests discussing the possibility of expanding the list of currencies to be used as reserve ones, on the basis of the adoption of agreed measures to stimulate the development of major regional financial centers, and also “the creation of a supra-national reserve currency that will be issued by international financial institutions.”

“It looks expedient to reconsider the role of the IMF in that process and also to determine the possibility and need for taking measures that would allow for the SDRs (Special Drawing Rights) to become a super-reserve currency recognized by the world community,” the document says.

Also, Russia in the medium and long-term is for a revision of the role and mandate of the IMF in order to adjust both to a new structure of the world currency and financial system, whose modification is to be completed as a result of the current crisis.

For the purpose of overcoming the current crisis it will be necessary to considerably increase the resources of the IMF.

“The decisions we shall make at the London summit must be not only adequate to the current situation, but also meet the requirements of a new, post-crisis world,” the document says.

So, so, empower IMF to issue a new reserve currency. From what we know of that corrupt organisation, seems like a very bad idea. But, then, perhaps Russia knows something we don't. So much is shrouded in mystery in this age of perpetual talk.

IMF poised to print billions of dollars in 'global quantitative easing'

The International Monetary Fund is poised to embark on what analysts have described as "global quantitative easing" by printing billions of dollars worth of a global "super-currency" in an unprecedented new effort to address the economic crisis.

By Edmund Conway (Daly Telegraph)
Last Updated: 9:07AM GMT 16 Mar 2009

Alistair Darling and senior figures in the US Treasury have been encouraging the Fund to issue hundreds of billions of dollars worth of so-called Special Drawing Rights in the coming months as part of its campaign to prevent the recession from turning into a global depression.

Should the move, which is up for discussion by the summit of G20 finance ministers this weekend, be adopted, it will represent a global equivalent of the Bank of England's plan to pump extra cash into the UK economy.

However, economists warned that the scheme could cause a major swell of inflation around the world as the newly-created money filters through the system. The idea has been suggested by a number of key figures, including billionaire investor George Soros and US Treasury adviser Ted Truman.

Simon Johnson, former chief economist at the IMF, said: "The principle behind it is that everyone would get bonus dollars and instead of the Federal Reserve having to print them, everyone gets them.

"The objective is to create a windfall of cash. However if everybody goes out and spends the money it could be very inflationary."

Is this what Russia has in mind? Does Russia take dictation from the likes of Soros? If so, forget any serious leadership role for this country after the upheaval.

To go back to the original Shock and Awe piece, I was suddenly struck by the thought that one thing the Muslim nation never shows is self-pity. They never go moaning on and on about victimhood, etc., though they would have every reason to do so. They know where they went wrong and now are doing their best to repair centuries of damage.

They leave such unseemly behaviour to the self-pity, lamenting champs and their acolytes ready at the drop of a hat to shed tears (crocodile) over the dastardly fate which is theirs of having been able to manoeuvre themselves into a position to rule the world.

"To go back to the original Shock and Awe piece,..."

Amazing things are happening before our very eyes.

Thanks to 911 and the Zionist plan for a New American Century (written by known foreign policy advisers to Netenyaho), the eyes of the Free Peoples of the World have finally been opened:

We now see (even though it is illegal to see) the holohaox industry for what it is. We see the Zio forces in disarray on the battlefields. We weep as we see live pictures of heinous crimes committed at home and abroad. We see their financial system collapsing, and we see their moral vision bankrupt. We see the emergence of failed police states in the four corners of the Zionist dominated "international community". But now for the cherry:

Ahmadinedjad and the Rabbis:

This you must see. It is another "sanity reset".

Put this Anti-Zionist Moslem-Jew alliance in the context of the new Anti Zionist Party (PAS) just launched in France.

PAS was created to rid France from the clutches of Zionist Lobby Groups, to dissolve the apartheid Jews Only State of Israel, to restore Palestine to its people (Moslems, Jews, and Christians), and to stop those raging Neo-Colonial wars contrived by the same international Zionist lobbies.

PAS expresses sentiments of peoples all around the world.

The pathetic cries of anti-Semitism and Islamo-Faschism no longer work to stem this tide of Anti Zionism throughout the world.

Thanks to the Shock and Awe Killings, thanks to the resistance in Somalia, Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan... thanks to Gaza.

PAS was launched in France since Gaza by Moslems and endorsed by the Rabbi of Antwerp.

For those of you who understand French, please visit the PAS site. Watch (in two videos) the important and historic speeches by the brilliant Rabbi of Antwerp, and the PAS founder.

Tip of the hat to atheo for posting about PAS here on Nation by Nation, and for her English translations of the PAS program and links:

Open Letter to Barak Hussein Obama, President-elect of the United States of America

By Dr. Mahathir Mohamad and Former Prime Minister of Malaysia

Global Research, January 2, 2009

January 1, 2009

Dear Mr. President,

I did not vote for you in the Presidential Election because I am Malaysian.

But I consider myself one of your constituents because what you do or say will affect me and my country as well.

I welcome your promise for change. Certainly your country, the United States of America needs a lot of changes.

That is because America and Americans have become the most hated people in the world. Even Europeans dislike your arrogance. Yet you were once admired and liked because you freed a lot of countries from conquest and subjugation.

It is the custom on New Year's day for people to make resolutions. You must have listed your good resolutions already. But may I politely suggest that you also resolve to do the following in pursuit of Change.

1) Stop killing people. The United States is too fond of killing people in order to achieve its objectives. You call it war, but today's wars are not about professional soldiers fighting and killing each other. It is about killing people, ordinary innocent people by the hundreds of thousands. Whole countries will be devastated.

War is primitive, the cavemen's way of dealing with a problem. Stop your arms build up and your planning for future wars.

2) Stop indiscriminate support of Israeli killers with your money and your weapons. The planes and the bombs killing the people of Gaza are from you.

3) Stop applying sanctions against countries which cannot do the same against you.

In Iraq your sanctions killed 500,000 children through depriving them of medicine and food. Others were born deformed.

What have you achieved with this cruelty? Nothing except the hatred of the victims and right-thinking people.

4) Stop your scientists and researchers from inventing new and more diabolical weapons to kill more people more efficiently.

5) Stop your arms manufacturers from producing them. Stop your sales of arms to the world. It is blood money that you earn. It is un-Christian.

6) Stop trying to democratize all the countries of the world. Democracy may work for the United States but it does not always work for other countries.

Don't kill people because they are not democratic. Your crusade to democratize countries has killed more people than the authoritarian Governments which you overthrew. And you have not succeeded anyway.

7) Stop the casinos which you call financial institutions. Stop hedge funds, derivatives and currency trading. Stop banks from lending non-existent money by the billions.

Regulate and supervise your banks. Jail the miscreants who made profits from abusing the system.

8) Sign the Kyoto Protocol and other international agreements.

9) Show respect for the United Nations.

I have many other resolutions for change which I think you should consider and undertake.

But I think you have enough on your plate for this 2009th year of the Christian Era.

If you can do only a few of what I suggest, you will be remembered by the world as a great leader. Then the United States will again be the most admired nation. Your embassies will be able to take down the high fences and razor-wire coils that surround them.

May I wish you a Happy New Year and a great Presidency.

Yours Sincerely,

Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad

(Former Prime Minister of Malaysia)

Thank you, Informatron, for the links to the anti-Zionist party newly founded in France. For the Ahmedinejad and rabbis vd as well. In-built tolerance in universalist Islam which the Jews have often exploited. Their Christen brethren no less.

Yahia Gouasmi, President of the French P.A.S., a good candidate for that hero list under preparation.

Anonymous said...

Dr. Mahathir Mohamad should qualify for the hero list: " the Jews rule the world by proxy. They get others to fight and die for them. They invented socialism, communism, human rights, and democracy so that persecuting them would appear to be wrong, so they may enjoy equal rights with others. With these they have now gained control of the most powerful countries. And they, this tiny community, have become a world power."

Quite right. I second that. Mahathir for lifelong membership of the hero club for all he has done for Malaysia and humanity.

By the way, where has our poiuytr gone? I hope he'll give us the benefit of some of his astringent comments soon as well.

Anonymous said...

Re poiuytr: if he is not with us, incognito, he must be researching and writing the next instalment of N by N. Plenty to write about, France just rejoined NATO and shoe throwers are awaiting Bush in Canada. Some say a shoe cannon has been devised.

Right, thanks.

- Mobilisation day on Thursday 19th March in France. Over 200 demos planned.

- Over 2 million unemployed in Britland.

> "Unfortunately for the people of the world everything is going according to the New World Order

i disagree in strongest possible terms. :) yes, the snippet probably contains the blueprint for the west psychotic wetdream, but they've failed and probably at every step of the plan. the last successful attack the west did was in London77 and before that 911, but that's sort of slowly unraveling too. since then, the west has failed everywhere and at everything. i'll try an article on making this claim.

> Is this what we're actually fighting, population cull so that a handful can thrive? How absolutely awful!

yes. the cull's been on for 2000 yrs. of course it's accelerated now to murdering 2M and maiming some 5M in a decade and the west seeks to accelerate this even more, if only they were allowed.


> Why is the Insurrection Daily Forum stuck in a rut? Don't they know

what rut?


> year. Zio-puppet Kofi Annan mumbles something about the sufferings of Africa and begs the west to do something about it. As though we haven't just emerged from a 60-year period of looting and plunder of Africa's resources. And now G20 has become the latest mantra. Like an unending comedy show at which no one laughs.

thanks for your view. i appreciate thoughts like that. right, and agree.

Greece has seen a wave of attacks by far-left groups following the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old by a policeman in December that also sparked protests and street violence around the country.
17/3/09 08:14

let's see how Greece welcomes Brit riot thugs. i can scarcely believe the news of UK sending riot quelling bitches to Greece. that's invasion. that's war. anyone saw the news and can confirm that. i'm really baffled over the seriousness of such a international provocation.


17/3/09 08:23 -- (this is Russia proposing int'l monetary change)

> then, perhaps Russia knows something we don't. So much is shrouded in mystery in this age of perpetual talk.

you mean perpetual lies. not once in the last 15 yrs has Russia revealed any card. not once. and not very often it reveals the data after the fact.

example: last year when George attacked people in Ossetia. people were outraged at the lack of Russia response. 2000 Russian civilians or so were said to have been killed, right at the onset of the Olympics and Russia made no real statements. remember?

well, talk is cheap. that's west's game, the perpetual used car salesman mentality, the billboard nation. russia without saying a word deployed 20K troops in 12 hrs taking over Georgia. and today, no much has been said, but Georgia is smaller and west has lost another proxy bitch.

Russia also supported many times sanctions on Iran. yes, Russia talk gives the west false hopes, misleads them, and gives the west a good whiplashing. that's all. for the rest of it, you gotta judge it by actions.

look at Central Asia. it's clear of west parasites today. accident?

look at Iran. accident it hasn't been touched?

and so on.

> "The objective is to create a windfall of cash. However if everybody goes out and spends the money it could be very inflationary."

look at this. PERFECT EXAMPLE of the WEST ENDLESS DRIVEL. (this is from your article you posted. some brit financier minister clown said it)

it's total nonsense. why would anyone "create cash if NOT for spending"? this cannot be, this type of nonsense, uttered by anyone who understands a little bit about cash. and this is from the "top" and all the west reads it and swallows crap like this... it's unreal.

first: if you add money to the pot, whether it's "invested", "spent", or just sitting in your wallet, it's INFLATION. that's just definition. second: is west now claiming that the zillions in bailouts are NOT used for spending but just for what? paperweight? recycling? what?

it's just endless crap from the west.

> Is this what Russia has in mind? Does Russia take dictation from the likes of Soros? If so, forget any

DEFINITELY NOT! no need to hang your head. no worries!

as far as soros. soros part owns carlyle. it's a west war elite junta collectivised front. they bought/plundered Russia's entire energy industry for some less than 200M, that's MILLION, USD back in early 90s. did Russia take dictation from these vampires? half of them wound up in jails, half ran to London where they call for assassination of Putin, and the entire west energy theft has been fully reversed leaving Mr soros gnashing his falsies.

now, to the monetary Russia proposal.

no, what Russia has in mind is the END of dollar use. or end of west int'l trade dominance. that's all!

in 2006, Russia nuked petrodollar and since then the west has been unstoppably bleeding to its unavoidable demise. now? it's time for the coup de grace.


> In Iraq your sanctions killed 500,000 children through depriving them of medicine and food. Others were born deformed.

(this is from the open letter to hussein obama)

additional note here: when clinton's USA foreign minister albright was asked what her response is to the 500K children (and that's under age 5 ONLY!!!!!!!!!!! as far as I know 18 yr is still a kid!) and she said "IT"S WORTHY".

that's the degree of sickness we're talking here!

thanks for the letter post!!!!!!!!!!!!

it's beautiful to see that indeed the Freeworld gets it all. while the west baboons troll forums and attack it with their endless pro-USA barfings.
