Swim team captain Grant Hackett wants the Tibetan outrage to die down – it will with the murder of dissidents
March 21, 2008

Australian Olympic swim team captain, Grant Hackett, says he hopes the Tibet outrage dies down a bit as the Games approach. A sort of callow response to what is an attempt at cultural genocide on the part of China. He means of course that he hopes the media coverage of the murder and oppression of the Tibetans fades away. It will, as China murders and jails the dissidents. Good thinking, Grant.

Premier F***k Features Brumby needs a lesson in reality
March 4, 2008

“Forget the damned motor car and build the cities for lovers and friends.” A Lewis Mumford quote I read on a blog today and it is in total contrast to Fuck Features Brumby’s pathetic plans to build Melbourne as a mediocre city of the future. Let’s go further out, he says. Let’s add another million people by 2028. Problem is the city will have at its centre a dead bay, engineered courtesy of Cunt Features, and thousands of acres of sprawling housing without any sense of community. Check the suicide rates on the present housing estates, their lack of libraries, entertainment centres, children’s bookshops, and wonder just where this Melbourne Club backed numbers man checked in his soul. Progress, he rants. Progress towards what? he should be asked. He has no vision for urban community centres, beyond that they should be built.

Doesn’t the poor bugger realise that the planet cannot cope with more: rain is becoming a rarity, and sprawling cities are not making for great lifestyles. Smaller communities are better and they encourage social interaction and creativity. I’m living in a town of 300 odd but we have a famers’ market that caters for 4,500 every third Sunday of the month. There are thirty committees in town and they’re often quite comic but when the library was closed, in existence since the gold rush, a third of the town turned up to protest. As a crime reporter I’ve observed the total disintegration of families and kids that live in the high rise abortions that previous visionary (not) governments foisted on us with great fanfare. There needs to be organic growth. And by the way, the answer to affordable housing (one of the reasons he’s opening up agricultural land to subdividers)is taxing those that are driving up our cost of living. These include mining, oil and power companies, and massive agricultural corporations. They are making the money not those on pitiful wages. And yet everything they produce is reflected in in the inflationary figures. And does Brumby have a plan to slow down production and replace such consumer substances with progress in social education and how it can be encouraged? Because spin is Brumby’s reality he only imagines he has

Let’s leave the last word to Lewis Mumford, from his mammoth book, The City in History: “Will the city disappear or will it turn into a vast urban hive? – which would be another mode of disappearance.”

Our political motor mouths haven’t woken yet to the chaos about to descend. They discovered the environment six months ago.

McCain a Republican puppet who can’t physically surrender
March 2, 2008

The Republicans want McCain because it’s impossible for him to surrender. They have at their head a dyed in the wool puppet. With his arm affliction (he can’t raise his hands, or arms above his shoulders because of a hero crash in Vietnam) the only way he could surrender is if his advisory team hold his arms up for him. Or his wife. Or anyone at all.

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.

China’s Olympic ambitions will show the world their inhuman record – like the Russian Olympics in 1980
February 22, 2008

China’s Olympics could turn out in the same way as the Russian in 1980. After the boycott of Russia by 64 states (led by the US) the Berlin Wall came down less than a decade later. I always maintained the boycott led to the beginning of the destruction of the USSR for suddenly it was discovered they were a fake country incapable of free speech, free elections or anything but political spin. They were revealed in all their nastiness.

China has inherited that image. They jail and kill dissidents, hound those who are in favour of free speech and elections, and oppress Tibetan and Burmese populations with their invasion tactics (Tibet) and support of corrupt military leaders (Burma). It’s again time for athletes and ordinary people to give these bastard Olympics a miss. We don’t want a replay of Hitler’s 1936 German Olympics where international support boosted the German soul’s need for domination. No one wants to look at these Olympic failures.

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.

They’re at it again. Now the CIA, ASIO, the FBI, UKUSA are censoring the web
January 25, 2008

Fifteen minutes after I posted the story of America, the UK, Australia and New Zealand being involved in the greatest human rights fraud ever, there were no postings in CIA, FBI, UKUSA, ASIO, MI5, MI6,Torture, Culture, Environment, etc. There was a posting in International Political Murders. It seems strange to me that only posts about security agencies don’t reach their destination. All my other posts reach their destination within seconds. Is it that they don’t like breaking news? Most other posts recorded are mulling over old stuff. Mine does that too.

Or is it that WordPress is a creature of the security agencies?

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.

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.
