Kevin Rudd needs to pay attention to a planet that is a super organism and will save itself.
April 17, 2008

Kevin Rudd is far behind on climate change and has no respect for the environment, but he loves kids. The need to talk to them, educate them and look after them shines in all his meeting with children. It’s good to watch. He also likes old people and just about anyone who comes across his path. It’s a pity he’s not doing enough to ultimately help them survive on this planet. Respected scientists are now saying by the end of the century that 60% of humanity will have disappeared from the planet because of lack of food, water and a continuing devastation¬† by horrendous storms. Remember those who think the planet is a super organism and will always survive. I used to laugh at them. This dust beneath my feet isn’t doing much thinking, I thought. Kevin, pay attention to those allegedly radical scientists. That way things will begin to happen. Not that I agree with them on nuclear power. But if the super organism is intelligent it may help us to help ourselves.

THE US, AUSTRALIA AND INDONESIA ARE LOCKED IN A DEVIL’S PACT FOR OIL
April 12, 2008

The US, Australia and Indonesia are locked in a Devil’s Pact to extract oil from East Timor. That’s what the invasion and the incredible diplomatic shenanigans of the past 30 years have been all about. It’s strange that in all the reporting of the East Timor trouble lately there has been no mention of oil, despite well over 200,000 East Timorese being previously murdered over it. For a time it was the only country in the world with a falling population rate. Australia and Indonesia have pulled so many swifties to get their hands on the oil. They have even done deals among themselves (remember Gareth Evans doing a deal with Indonesian Foreign Minister while in the air over Timor) while totally ignoring East Timor. (Of course it has now been decided by the UN that the oil in the Timor Sea is East Timor’s.)

The earlier strategy from Australia was to agree to help remove the Indonesia military from East Timor but in 1999 they allowed – by delaying entering East Timor by several days – the murder of 1,700 dissidents, women and children included, and the complete destruction of all of Indonesia’s infrastructure, mainly the delivery of power, water, transport etc and it has not been replaced. This was punishment for the East Timorese voting for independence in 1999. And it was all about oil.

Now we have decided to be more subtle, having a loony army officer attempt to assassinate the country’s leaders.

And now Indonesia has revealed what a bogus and immoral country they are ( and Australia is just as guilty). They have freed all the Indonesians responsible for the massacres and destruction of 1999. All those army officers were blameless. Notice how Australia is not complaining about the legal scandal. We won’t of course unless the major players, the US decides that it is all too blatant. There is a precedent for that. The right wing Ford Foundation was the first conservative organisation to speak out on the human rights infringements in East Timor after the invasion – an estimated ten years after the event. But it was enough to begin turning the US and Australia around, slowly, so that a “spin” solution could be found.

The eventual spin solution occurred in 1999. How do we know it was spin? because Australia later attempted to defy a UN ruling on the illegality of Australia extracting the oil from a southern tip of the oil field they claimed was in Australia’s territory. It was discovered it wasn’t so now we’re trying to starve and criminally neglect the East Timorese while pretending we’re trying to save the country. See My novel Cleaning Up published by Sceptre (Hodder and Stoughton) in 1993 WHICH STATED THAT UNDER THE GUISE OF SAVING EAST TIMOR THE US, AUSTRALIA AND INDONESIA WERE ATTEMPTING TO DESTROY IT.

Bush’s surge spin and the desert reality maketh America mud in international eyes
March 1, 2008

President Bush’s Iraqi surge was always spin but now the media is swallowing it. Let’s realise that the US isn’t going to leave Iraq,because it and the West’s oil companies will own pretty much all the oil. To protect it they are leaving the cities and towns for superbases in the desert. The first is 100 k north of Bhagdad and it appears to have swimming pools, bowling allies and fast food outlets; oh yeah and a golf course.

They are following Colin Powell’s strategy of beating them in the desert. It’s very easy that way. Powell was a strategist bordering on genius. Now the Americans retreat to the desert and stay there to protect oil fields and pipelines and general infrastructure.

According to The London Review of Books there will be five superbases, each with 20,000 soldiers. In the desert there will be no suicide bombing because sand is not considered the enemy except by those who have been released out there without water.

How did this come about? I have explained this in an earlier post but essentially the US drafted oil legislation will give the West 80% of all the surveyed oil, which is 115 trillion barrels. Of the unsurveyed oil that speculation puts at over 300 trillion barrels the West gets 100%. Given that the war has cost only a trifle of that , an estimated $1 trillion, and oil is around $100 a barrel the economics is the logic for staying there with a dynamic new strategy.

The US may have lost the war in the cities but it won’t in the desert, but its name will be mud in every civilised country. Remember their war on terror involves rendition, torture, bribery, rape, blackmail and murder. Oh yes, and spontaneous killings, because their soldiers are, at the moment, run ragged with their patrol hours.

East Timorese have Indonesia, Australia and America pretending they’re not trying destroy them
February 14, 2008

Under the guise of saving East Timor Australia, Indonesia and America plan to destroy it. That was a portion of the blurb on my political novel published by Sceptre in 93. It really wasn’t prophetic because those countries had already waded in. Indonesia had killed over 200,000 people during the invasion in 75 and and continued the murdering. Australia tacitly supported this behaviour by Indonesia, as did America.

After 25 years world opinion turned on Australia, America and Indonesia for it was finally realised it was all about oil. Remember oil, the source of all conflict. Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Gareth Evans signed the deal to divvy up East Timor’s oil without the East Timorese being part of negotiations. That agreement was thrown out because the East Timorese kept resisting Indonesian forces and the pleadings of Australia and America,

Finally the UN asked Australia to step in and escort the Indonesians from the country. Unfortunately Australia delayed their arrival in East Timor for several days and that allowed Indonesia to kill dissidents and destroy the country’s infrastructure. That is roads, power and anything that worked.

Now we’re working “subtley” to destroy the country. The strong leaders¬† had to go and we decided it had to look as if an amateur crackpot was carrying out the job. If it had looked efficient and professional mightn’t journalists suspect interested nations to be behind it?

If you think Australia and American oil companies are not up to such deceit look at the oil agreement East Timor was asked to sign last year. It gave the West the major share of the oil. East Timor rejected it and look how they’ve been punished.
