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.

America, UK, Australia and New Zealand security agencies are part of the greatest human rights fraud perpetrated on English speaking countries
January 25, 2008

The US, UK, Australia, and New Zealand are part of the greatest human rights fraud being perpetrated on English speaking countries. This week it was announced in Australia that we had been invited to participate in the FBI’s criminal and terrorist data base – The Age. In the UK the FBI demanded that the UK data base be available to the FBI- The Guardian.

Okay, let’s slow down. Let’s ask the questions. Don’t we already have Interpol to do exactly these things and doesn’t that include the police forces of European countries? Strangely enough the very week that the FBI announced their need to enter our data bases the head of Interpol was charged with taking bribes. Gee, I guess that means Interpol is no longer viable. So why haven’t our police forces been disbanded and sidelined when our state police commissioners have been found to be corrupt?

But we already have the secret UKUSA (UK USA) organisation that includes all the English speaking security agencies in the already listed countries. This organisation was exposed by Professor Desmond Ball in his book, The Ties That Bind. The operational head of UKUSA is the director of the CIA out of Langley. It’s sort of cosy isn’t it? You see George Bush senior was director of the CIA before he was President. UKUSA was regarded as the organisation that brought together all the countries that agreed with and participated in the first Gulf War. Note how different it was for George Bush jnr in the second Gulf War. In the CIA there was also the Bush League, a group of agents who worked to have George Bush snr elected president.

So why is the FBI now pretending that they want access to all the data bases and insist that we increase the quality of our criminal and terrorist information (Please note that the security laws were used again the protesters at Heathrow airport some months ago, so into the data bases go those who are dissidents but not criminals or terrorists – The Guardian). Why could that be? My speculation is that as the environment of the planet worsens there will be stronger protests against government policies that favour the polluters and not the ordinary people who now save water and power. Aren’t we all doing that saving?

Well, no we’re not. The big polluters are going to be fined or receive hefty levies, or trade the right to pollute, to compensate for their polluting ways. That’s what Kyoto and Bali was all about. Problem is corporations always pass on the tarriffs they have to pay, or the interest to the banks, or their oil and transport costs to you and I, the consumer. Look how the banks who made disastrous subprime investments raised their interest to cover their losses.

But let’s get back to the main theme of this story. With the FBI raiding our information that our security people have collected on innocent people we are reasonably accepting. Imagine if they had blatantly said it was UKUSA, run by the CIA that wanted the information. Slowly there would develop considerable unease for the CIA have been behind the murder, torture and kidnapping of innocent people in following their rendering policies. The CIA have used countries friendly to America to aid them in carrying out the horrible rendering process. UK plane watches broke the story that the CIA planes were using the UK airports for their illegal deeds. Naturally they would have used other countries that were subservient to America and the CIA. And naturally UKUSA will receivedthe FBI information collected from other security agencies around the world for the director of the CIA controls UKUSA which controls the FBI.

American bastards jailed David Hicks for five years without charge. He trained with terrorists, what should we do with those who trained them?
December 30, 2007

Alleged terrorist (he was made to plead guilty if he wanted freedom, after being jailed for 5 years without charge – what bastards Americans are) David Hicks, who was no more than an enterprising adventurer tasting what the world has to offer, has been called stupid etc by the media. Remember it’s the same media that’s been wrong on climate change, Iraq, nuclear power safety, and a host of other causes they supported in their subtle ways. Oh and they’ve done absolutely nothing in protesting our terrorist legislation that makes us a parallel for Muslim countries that also flout a denial of human and legal rights of the individual.

If only more of those greedy fucking accountants who have stolen Australia’s culture of generosity and humour and replaced it with a mean, narrow and souless pursuit of the dollar – now on the point of failing (the American dollar is about to bust) – had taken off to taste the world’s diversity. We placed such expectation and responsibility on ignorant numbers creatures.

We jailed Hicks for training with terrorist, what should we do with those Americans who trained them? They were just as innocent as Hicks.

In killing Benazir Bhutto Musharaff has proved himself a dog
December 28, 2007

Musharaff has proved himself the murdering dog that he is. Finally he has killed Benazir Bhutto and he’ll get away with it because he is being protected by Bush and the terrorists. America has paid him billions of dollars to maintain opposition to the terrorists who are bedded down in Pakistan’s mountains, so it behoves them to mouth support for him and his bogus democracy. Meanwhile the terrorists are unphased by the verbal campaign he has conducted against them. Al-Qaida has major bases in the rugged mountains and wants to stay there. They left Musharaf alone and he left them alone, besides assuring America he was on its side. Of course he was on his side and never had worthwhile results in tracking terrorists or ridding Pakistan of them.

Here’s a portion of an earlier post updated. Musharaff had more time than any leader supported for an alleged stand on terrorism. There has been no significant arrests or even discoveries during his time but his totalitarian attitude has prevailed against his people for the years he has been supported by America. When is American Security going to realise that to support the mealy-mouthed brutals will always be counter productive? Perhaps now. But how do average Americans change this? They don’t because they’re ruled, like Australia, by the wealthy of their country, and the wealthy want to have terrorists scaring the bejesus out of their people because that way they are easily ruled.

It’s very silly to imagine that they can rectify the Pakistan problem by attacking the mountains (that’s all it would be) with air power, because the country is even more rugged than Afghanistan and look how the West is faring there. Iraq would be a total pushover compared to Pakistan.

America -with desert super bases – is to stay in Iraq forever, and the mainstream media didn’t tell you
December 22, 2007

For so long I tried to make a link between the US not wanting to sign up for cutting emissions and their reliance on oil. I could never make it, until now. Jim Holt in The London Review of Books (October) has helped me. He has shown readers that the United States feel they can rely on oil longer than any other country, and so establish continuing industrial dominance (you wondered why Bush was so arrogant didn’t you?) They can do this because Iraq has 115 billion barrels of known oil reserves, five times the total of the United States. According to experts there may also be another 300 billion barrels of undiscovered oil. In Iraq there has only been two thousand oil wells drilled but in Texas they have over a million. See the potential there? Well if you don’t, according to Jim Holt, the US forces are sitting on one quarter of the world’s oil resources.

Who will finally get this oil? In the draft bill, prepared by the US for the Iraqi Congress, Iraq will cede nearly all this oil to Western companies for the next thirty years. The Iraq oil company will retain seventeen of the present eighty oil fields. The undiscovered oil fields will all go to the western companies.

Now, you might ask, how will they be protected? Is the US simply behaving in the manner of a boastful pretender. Are they, by enforcing their authority on a country that appears to be thrashing them, simply attempting to impress the rest of the planet?

No, the US is serious, and to this end are building five super bases in the deserts of Iraq, each super base capable of holding twenty thousand men. The bases are well along and far from the urban terrorists. These men will control and protect all the oil infrastructure. America is to stay in Iraq forever. And remember the mainstream media hasn’t told you.

Australia never had a place in its culture for adventure, romance or experimenting with different ideas
December 21, 2007

The evidence in the Hicks case spells the end of Australian understanding of romance, adventure, and the thrill of experimenting with new ideas. We never really did understand, for our present hollow culture is more of the cruel, bureaucratic and vengeful genre. Let’s not kid ourselves. The fading culture that we glorified came from the David Hickses and Jack Thomases of the nation who took to the sniff of war in 1914 for comradeship and adventure. It didn’t come from our imitative, educated and ambitious classes who sacrificed fun for doubtful status. Doubtful because in the swim to the top of the horrible pile it means servility to those nations we wrongfully regarded as our superiors. Look at our subsequent distorted perceptions. Menzies imagined the Queen as a romantic, sexualised image. Keating thought Menzies correct and being opportunistic working class ( which used to have a strong culture) placed his hand on her waist and was splapped on the wrist by the media. How unbelievably banal and pathetic. If she had responded in a knowing way Keating would have rogered her without hesitation, later receiving the offer of a knighthood. Keating was a bit too real for our sick bureaucratic nation.

And are we going to pay for the nasty, obsequious drivel that our department heads foist on our lazy politicians.

The Hicks case shows just how far we have deprived ourselves of our democratic rights and the rule of law. It’s not just Hicks who has to prove himself innocent of terrorist sympathies, and being a future danger, it’s all of us. Don’t think so? Just remember the environmental protesters who were arrested in the UK under such laws a few weeks ago.

And who may have beenthe role models for Hicks and Thomas in the thirties? Why, George Orwell and Arthur Koestler. They took the communist side in the Spanish civil war. Each of them were condemned to death and each were subject to a mock execution. Read terrorist for communist in that conflict. However they each saw the error of the side they had chosen and wrote revealing texts on it. Texts we still turn to for enlightenment.

My predictions on Iraqi matters were all hung out to dry
December 20, 2007

Did you ever wonder why Downer and Costello beat a hasty retreat from the corridors of power? Could you ever have imagined that they would be charged over the AWB’s kickback scam to Saddam Hussien. To me it was unbelievable that these people were unaware of $290 million worth of bribes paid by Australia. One way to check this at a later date is to see what happens to those who covered for them. The cover up went like this: No, the ministers didn’t see the letters or e-mails despite these missives being sent and seen by individuals in their employ. How slack of their administrations not to mention a leak of so much money to Saddam. I didn’t believe it and predicted that the ministers would be charged along with those  who are accused of “ought to have known about contracts,” “ought to have known fees breached Iraq trade sanctions” etc. Our former ministers, who deal so competently with financial matters, should surely know that those who are banned from receiving Australia’s money shouldn’t get it.

And while I’m about admitting my predictions in these matters have come to nothing, my major prediction on Iraq certainly slid into the absurd genre. I predicted that the Americans, being unable to cope with the war, would reinstall Saddam and everything would return to normal. I had underestimated America’s greed for oil and having their oil legislation passed by the new government they established. Having necked Saddam they had to create a fallback position. Again I imagined (not predicted) that they would follow Colin Powell’s strategy of fighting and beating the Iraqis in the desert. He didn’t want to go near the cities (wise soldier). The fallback position is “structured fabrication.” We didn’t tell anyone about the civilian casualties (and denied the UN figures of hundreds of thousands) so we’ll stop telling them about all the bombings. We’ll have to tell them about some or they won’t believe our story. However with a fall in bomber statistics we can say the Bush surge has worked. We only need more troops. It’s just unfortunate but now the figures are down we’ll be withdrawing troops.

THE CIA CENSOR THE NET
December 18, 2007

Following my suspicion that the CIA had censored my post on their torturers having sexual pleasure at the expense of their victims, a correspondent has contacted me with the figures published in a recent Harpers magazine. Since June 2004 Wikipedia has had 310 entries censored and re-written (edited) by the CIA.

I no longer suspect that I’m paranoid. And I was tested. My phone/computer line crashed the day the story appeared in the News Diary in The Age (edited by Suzanne Carbone) and during the evening the lights in the house fused out.

Each event had rational explanation. The phone line was torn from its socket when an extremely large truck (no one has seen one so large prior to this – evidence is that the line hadn’t previously been broken) rounded my corner and stripped the line from the lamp post.

I discovered that the lights had fused out because the lights in my wife’s new gallery (Shed 47, Talbot) was an overload when two freezers came on. See, simple explanations. No need to rush out to purchase dogs and other armaments.

CIA torturers get sexual thrills.
December 12, 2007

CIA torturers get sexual thrills from their activity. How do I know? Jack Thomas and David Hicks experienced objects being forced into their rectums when CIA agents were present during their torture sessions. And what do you do with porn tapes of torture if you’re CIA? You get rid of them of course. They’ve kept other water torture tapes so why did they get rid of those that went further? So they wouldn’t be up on porn charges. It’s okay to torture but it’s illegal to enjoy it.

Destroying East Timor under the guise of saving it
November 16, 2007

Gough Whitlam may not have known about the planned murder of the Balibo five but his lack of protest against the proposed invasion of East Timor was one of the reasons it happened. Also to blame for the invasion were Gerald Ford and Henry Kissinger. These two were in Indonesia talking about the invasion and requested that it wouldn’t happen until they were out of Indonesia airspace.

It was all over oil in the Timor sea. Going the rounds at the time was a letter from the diplomat posted to Indonesia, Richard Woolcott, to Gough Whitlam stating that it would be best to negotiate on oil with Indonesia rather than East Timor. After the 1975 invasion, Jean McLean a former left faction State member of Parliament began posting it regularly in her electorate newsletter. The plan has always been to destroy East Timor under the guise of saving it, as outlined in my faction novel, Cleaning Up, published by Sceptre in 1993. That is still the plan. The ocean of oil under the Timor Sea is becoming more and more valuable.

Mr Downer’s delay in getting troops into East Timor when the UN was kicking the Indonesian military out of East Timor, allowed the military to massacre all those who had worked against them during their occupation. The Indonesian military had killed over 250,000 East Timorese in the invasion and just kept killing.

Now Indonesia is paying groups of East Timorese to commit violence against East Timor. It is also under a guise. It’s coming from the alleged opposition. Australia is benefiting by keeping troops there to keep the demonstrations under control. This gives Australia leverage when it comes to further oil negotiations. It’s all a merry-go-round of machinations but its a matter of following the oil. Australia’s nasty and secretive method of attempting to drain the oil from the Timor Basin from what they said was an off-shore Australian shelf was condemned by the UN and all other nations.
