 Elders Meeting3 comments

Recently a diplomatic delegation of White Fellows formally approached certain Traditional Custodians of this land most people refer to as Australia. Their approach was that they do not recognize the Federal Government as the custodians of the land, nor is the elected government able to govern this land with the wisdom and values required to secure a sustainable future. In fact they acknowledge that the traditional people being addressed are the custodians and the fact that they have lived for at least 60,000 sustainably proves that. The delegation made a request that they be taught how to do this.

As a result of this approach elders said that they will provide access to their most sacred sites and their most sacred knowledge to any whom come. To launch this process they offered to send twenty of their most senior men to meet with a larger delegation of men at Mildura, Victoria, Australia in mid September this year.

As far as I know this is the first time in the history of this country that an invitation of this nature has been offered. They are the oldest surviving culture on the planet and have opened the door to sharing there most sacred knowledge.

This is an invitation to all men of all Nations.

Not sure how widely circulated this is. It surely is good news from the halls of power, somebody is standing up in order to be counted. A letter from former Secretary of State; Ramsey Clark to Kofi Annan. Has this been big news in the USA?

Secretary General Kofi Annan United Nations New York, NY

Dear Secretary General Annan,

George Bush will invade Iraq unless restrained by the United Nations. Other international organizations-- including the European Union, the African Union, the OAS, the Arab League, stalwart nations courageous enough to speak out against superpower aggression, international peace movements, political leadership, and public opinion within the United States--must do their part for peace. If the United Nations, above all, fails to oppose a U.S. invasion of Iraq, it will forfeit its honor, integrity and raison d'etre.

A military attack on Iraq is obviously criminal; completely inconsistent with urgent needs of the Peoples of the United Nations; unjustifiable on any legal or moral ground; irrational in light of the known facts; out of proportion to other existing threats of war and violence; and a dangerous adventure risking continuing conflict throughout the region and far beyond for years to come. The most careful analysis must be made as to why the world is subjected to such threats of violence by its only superpower, which could so safely and importantly lead us on the road to peace, and how the UN can avoid the human tragedy of yet another major assault on Iraq and the powerful stimulus for retaliatory terrorism it would create.  More >

WAKE-UP CALL

If the US and Iraq do go to war, there can only be one winner, can't there? Maybe not. This summer, in a huge rehearsal of just such a conflict - and with retired Lieutenant General Paul Van Riper playing Saddam - the US lost. Julian Borger asks the former marine how he did it.

At the height of the summer, as talk of invading Iraq built in Washington like a dark, billowing storm, the US armed forces staged a rehearsal using over 13,000 troops, countless computers and $250m. Officially, America won and a rogue state was liberated from an evil dictator.

What really happened is quite another story, one that has set alarm bells ringing throughout America's defence establishment and raised questions over the US military's readiness for an Iraqi invasion. In fact, this war game was won by Saddam Hussein, or at least by the retired marine playing the Iraqi dictator's part, Lieutenant General Paul Van Riper.

In the first few days of the exercise, using surprise and unorthodox tactics, the wily 64-year-old Vietnam veteran sank most of the US expeditionary fleet in the Persian Gulf, bringing the US assault to a halt.  More >

ZNet Commentary Subverting Democracy by Jeremy Tully [link]

As reports of Israeli war crimes continue to emerge, the U.S. refuses to alter its stance of support for Israel, instead placing nearly all the blame on Yasir Arafat. President Bush has refused to do more than issue some harsh words to Israel that, by the White House's own admission, were never intended to stem Israel's war against the Palestinians.

It was in response to such misguided foreign policy that between 75,000 and 100,000 Americans converged on Washington D.C. last Saturday, Apr. 20th. The largest pro-Palestinian rally in U.S. history protested Israel's 35-year occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip as well as ongoing corporate hegemony and globalization.

But far from viewing such a huge groundswell of opposition to U.S. foreign policy as something worthy of extensive coverage, the mass media in America deemed it necessary to misrepresent and underreport the facts. Part of a continuing effort to sanitize news coverage of events in Middle East and the American response to them, the press in the U.S. seems to be more interested in toeing the official line than in honest journalism.  More >

 Mike Moore's "Stupid White Men"5 comments

Dear Friends,

I woke up in Tampa, Florida, yesterday, picked up the Sunday newspaper, and there it was: the New York Times today had declared that, for the fourth week in a row, "Stupid White Men" is the #1 book in the country. I am out of explanations at this point as to how this thing has stayed atop on the Times bestseller list for a month. I've been informed that the book is now in its 19th printing. Also, it remains #1 in Canada, and it has gone to #1 this week in Britain and Ireland, according to the Sunday Times of London.  More >

SPY CASE IN CANADIAN COURTS SUGGESTS US NAVAL OFFICER HAD FOREKNOWLEDGE OF 9-11

TORONTO, [Filed January 25, 2002, and Revised January 28, 2002] – EDITORIAL NOTE: In our original story we indicated that the note written by Delmart “Mike” Vreeland had been sealed in court records. We based this on a misreading of Canadian press stories. In fact, the warning of the World Trade Center attacks, written by Vreeland on either August 11th or 12th has been introduced into open evidence in Vreeland’s case in Toronto. Using court records in our possession, FTW has scanned the document and it is available for viewing in this story. We apologize for the error. Following is a revised story which we feel is the best way to present this important information in context.]

----------

Delmart Edward “Mike” Vreeland, an American citizen whose claims to being a US Naval Lieutenant assigned to the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) are being increasingly corroborated in open court, has been in a Canadian jail since December 6, 2000. On August 11 or 12 of 2001, the date is uncertain, after trying to verbally alert his Canadian jailers to the coming World Trade Center attacks, he wrote down key information and sealed it in an envelope which he then had placed in jailers’ custody. This event is not disputed by Canadian authorities. The letter specifically listed a number of targets including The Sears Towers, The World Trade Center, The White House, The Pentagon, The World Bank, The Canadian parliament building in Ottawa and the Royal Bank in Toronto.

A chilling sentence follows the list of targets, “Let one happen. Stop the rest!!!”  More >

GUILTY FOR 9-11, SECTION 3: BUSH IN THE OPEN by Illarion Bykov and Jared Israel [ Posted on Scoop NZ ,18 January 2002] =======================================

We have demonstrated that normal air safety and air defense measures were not employed on September 11th. This is extraordinary because 9-11 was the only day that four airplanes were hijacked in the U.S., not to mention the only day that three planes crashed into key buildings in New York City and Washington, DC. (1)

We have argued that this stand-down of the air protection systems could not have occurred absent the involvement of top officials. We have named George Walker Bush, Donald Rumsfeld and General Richard B. Myers.

Why these three men?  More >
