The War on Terror Ten Years On - What's It All About?

New War Rumours: US Plans to Seize Pakistan's Nuclear Arsenal

"Two recent news items emanating from the United States have begun to reverberate in Pakistan and give rise to speculation that growing American drone strikes and NATO helicopter attacks in that country may be the harbingers of far broader actions: Nothing less than the expansion of the West's war in Afghanistan into Pakistan with the ultimate goal of seizing the nation's nuclear weapons..."

The War on Terror® is an alien plot to sow discord among earthlings (inhabitants of Terra - get it?). While we are busy fighting each other,  cells (pods by any other name) from Al (qaida)pha Centari will move in and colonise us. Well, maybe not colonise. We will all be slaves to the new alien masters - and the original pod-people - Sarah Palin and Stevie-boy Harper, and their otherworldy offspring.


the war on terror was always the War On Tots.


Please Support The War on Tots


The War on Tots is not a game

  that's played to pass the time,

  But is a fight for all that's good,

  which we are, versus them!


Our fighting men, so brave so few

   Go everywhere for peace

   Making free a world at war

   but some yet try appease!!


You must support the war on tots

   If we're going to stay on top

 And as nits make lice, otherwise

   Lousy wars cost way too much!


The proof is in the bible ...

  a mighty army on the move

  Confronts a bunch of dirty tots

  when one of theirs steps forward!


Goliath was so strong, supreme

  faced boy David, but look who won!

  the War on Tots is ours to lose

  A lesson finally learned!


Bleeding hearts assume all tots

  prefer splashing pools to firefights,

But Goliath fell, he lost the war

    - IED or a slingshot stone

    - took unfair advantage of the game

  And the size of the fallen mighty!


Our needs are mighty, neverending

   Bush, boy Harper, military spending,

Around the world confront resentment

though political correctness tie their hands

(while enabling others)  who then

Must be dealt with aggression!


We strike hard at nests of vipers

  Shock and Awe and bloody diapers

  War's not for the faint of heart

  The war on tots we forced to start!


CNCBC the Fox  reports the truths

  we paid for, bought

Though liberals try to hide that truth

  (about the war on the Terrible Twos)

The media soothes, no news good news!

   up is down in a world gone belly up!


So do your duty, fall in line

  Rightwing newsmedia tells it Right!

The war on tots maybe out of style

But Harper's Brownshirts remain defiant,  

Their Foxtail News says "You're  Goliath!'

while we media Davids  are 'only a child!"

Michel Chossudovsky wrote:
One of the main objectives of war propaganda is to "fabricate an enemy". The "outside enemy" personified by Osama bin Laden is "threatening America".

Pre-emptive war directed against "Islamic terrorists" is required to defend the Homeland. Realities are turned upside down. America is under attack.

In the wake of 9/11, the creation of this "outside enemy" has served to obfuscate the real economic and strategic objectives behind the war in the Middle East and Central Asia. Waged on the grounds of self-defense, the pre-emptive war is upheld as a "just war" with a humanitarian mandate. [...]

Historical Background

What are the historical origins of Al Qaeda? Who is Osama bin Laden?...

In 1979 the largest covert operation in the history of the CIA was launched in Afghanistan:

"With the active encouragement of the CIA and Pakistan’s ISI, who wanted to turn the Afghan Jihad into a global war waged by all Muslim states against the Soviet Union, some 35,000 Muslim radicals from 40 Islamic countries joined Afghanistan’s fight between 1982 and 1992. Tens of thousands more came to study in Pakistani madrasahs. Eventually, more than 100,000 foreign Muslim radicals were directly influenced by the Afghan jihad." (Ahmed Rashid, "The Taliban: Exporting Extremism", Foreign Affairs, November-December 1999).

[url= lists of alleged hijackers with photos[/url] are in error. At least several alleged hijackers are still alive.

How many of the remaining alleged hijackers are:

1. still alive?

2. perhaps never even boarded the four passenger planes in question on 9/11?

3. perhaps even murdered and identities stolen some time before 9/11?

[url=][color=blu... 9-11 "HIJACKERS" ARE STILL ALIVE[/color][/url]

How can the 9/11 Commission be taken seriously when they continue referring to alive and well "hijackers"?



38 Hiroshimas Hidden - How'd the Army Do That?'d-the-army-do-that/

"Dr Chris Busby, a world famous UK based physicist, was at the UN last week with the results of his health survey of the city of Fallujah, Iraq. The results were truly astonishing, even to the jaded eyes of UN representatives, old retired war-fighters and politically connected bureaucrats. No armed force had accomplished this level of death and disease in a civilian population before..

There it was in black and white, on paper, from an internationally respected physicist - the utterly unbelievable, but certified results:


and yes, Canada DID participate in the Iraq war...


duh..our society is run by war criminals.  And it has been for a long time. After WW2, it was truman/churchil and the 'allied' leadership who forced division of Europe/Germany, and created iron curtain and  'cold war' outta thin air, in defiance of Yalta agreement made by Joe Stalin; but... BUT! guess who paid child support for the west's coldwar bastard child? Who was forced to pay support? And paid and paid and paid until it fell like an exhausted miner. And we CELEBRATE the end of the Revolution on the publicly funded CBC, not to mention walltowall happy faces in the pigmedia!

They treat us like we stupid, and ....for example, Elisbeth May was being attacked for her lack of pro canada patriotism by some skinhead loudmouth the other day and instead of attacking lori goldstein (?)  for his silly dishonesty, she whines she' 'loves canada so much she'd kiss it if it was a baby' or something utterly foolish. The rIGHTWING rules and the RIGHTWING reacts and the RIGHTWING are the problem, but ...they say the earth is flat,  and it sure do look flat when you're out in a field.  You gotta admit...


War criminals and freebooters...such has been the European contribution to global civilization.  Yes, along way, we get Beatles, Mozart, we have to accept who the masters really are for if we look merely at the criminals and parasites...we never focus upon the what is the host.  However, pointing this out, might be a useful exercise, as like in our discussion of fascism but it is not enough.  We have to expose the lie in everyday language.  For the lie has been going on so long, that even the liars themselves are not certain what is real.  Furthermore, Canadians have been conditioned to accept the lies almost from birth and take it with to beyond the grave - why? Because, there is nobody standing up for truth and calling it as they see it...instead, there are thousands of whispers that form not a chorus but a chaotic assembly - a babble rather than a rabble.  A population not a people.  A mess of lines not a network.

I understand, sites like this one are trying to create what I am advocating but what is sorely lacking is either coordination and cooperation in the fostering of alternative spaces.  Only, when the great mass of people see that there is an alternative then can be something point to as an alternative.  That has been the great victory of the so-called RIGHTWING is that they have created the alternative that people can relate to - the market counterpoised against the paternalistic state.  For as much as people may need to be taken care of...they also think of that in individual terms.  The fragility of solidarity is most evident in this countries largest cities.  Where a simple act of asking if someone needs help is met with suspicion and fear.  We have become strangers to our neighbours and ourselves...and until we can build institutions where our neighours are known to us then we will continue to think of ourselves as individuals.  And, best recourse for individual advancement has always been the market.


Things must not be going well for NATO - they've had to resort to OBL!

Osama Bin Laden Living in Comfort in Pakistan: Nato Official

Have we killed as many people as Hitler did? No, not in the same manner. But by sins of both commission (Iraqis bombed and shot, for example) and omission (children starving and suffering from preventable illness, for example) of course we have.

I can still write this.

I can still post this on marginal websites unseen by the masses.

I can still say these things openly on the street.

But reporters are being preemptively detained. Peace activists' homes are being raided. And the number two excuse I get from people for their inaction (after futility, which is always number one) is fear (which is not always high on the list -- it had to be put there).

Do you use these phrases? Illegal Alien. Underclass. Stakeholders. Defense Department. Humanitarian Intervention. Homeland. Targeted Strike. Collateral Damage. Evildoers. Islamofascists. Terrorists. Muslim Extremists. Status of Forces Agreement. Iranian Threat.

If you use those phrases, are they your own?

If you hear those phrases, do you object to them? Do you protest them?

Has anyone had family members tell you to keep quiet and not write letters to the editor of local newspapers? I must admit that I have family members who have sat down with me and expressed concern about it. I wrote one darned letter in support of the NDP, and they let me know about it because I share their name.
