Stop a War

Stop a War

A nation at war with itself cannot stand. He speaks of American justice and points us to evil while he cuts deals with nuclear armed devils. A friend of al Qaeda, he isrepparttar Commander-In-Chief ofrepparttar 126036 most powerful military force on planet earth andrepparttar 126037 man we call President. I know this is true because I heard it on TV.

In November, 2001, just weeks after declaring war on global terrorism, President George Bush and Secretary Donald Rumsfeld assisted some 8,000 members of al Qaeda and their Pakistani trainers to escape Afghanistan. Three to four hundred members ofrepparttar 126038 U.S. Delta Force hadrepparttar 126039 terrorists surrounded, in their gun sights and can testify they were ordered not to engage.

This episode was reported onrepparttar 126040 PBS program, NOW, with Bill Moyers, on February 21, 2003, by investigative reporter Seymour Hersh. The transcript is available fromrepparttar 126041 NOW/PBS Website.

If this report is correct: 1.The war on terrorism is a fraud. 2. President Bush and Secretary Rumsfeld have provided aid and comfort to an enemy in wartime. This, I seem to recall, isrepparttar 126042 definition of high treason, a capital crime for which both men should be executed when properly tried and convicted. 3. President Bush and Secretary Rumsfeld should be immediately relieved of office by Congress. Until this matter is resolved and before another American life is lost in a phony war created to convincerepparttar 126043 people to trade their liberty for security. Security that cannot be had at any price. Life carries risks that can only be minimized by personal choices, not police power. 4. If Congress refuses to act in this matter, leaving alleged traitors in a position to further destroy lives, they should all be recalled from office byrepparttar 126044 States.

It is known to American government that Pakistan is a sponsor of and shield to terrorism. General Musharraf is likely a puppet of radical fundamentalists in Pakistan and elsewhere. The economic aid flowing to Pakistan byrepparttar 126045 billions from American taxpayers, through a treasonous Congress, is used to support al Qaeda and to provide nuclear weapons to 3rd world powers like North Korea and probably al Qaeda as well. Pakistan isrepparttar 126046 Capitol of evil and government says, “No, look over here, at Iraq, Iran and North Korea! Pakistan is our nuclear proliferating terrorist friend because we fear them and must support their secular strong man.”

Every member ofrepparttar 126047 U.S. Armed Forces has sworn an oath to defendrepparttar 126048 U.S. Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Those members of Delta Force who leaked this story of presidential hypocrisy and treason have done their duty to America and their military brethren. I have no doubt more will come forward, if nothing happens to them, to confirmrepparttar 126049 treason of November, 2001. Whenrepparttar 126050 Commander-In-Chief is a traitor,repparttar 126051 soldier is in a very delicate position. He/she can be placed in harm’s way before testimony can be given. These witnesses need protection now. Should anything happen to them, we will know that treason has no limit.

Because high treason is a capital crime, it seems there is great reluctance to expose it, like a family secret. No one wants to accuse or tryrepparttar 126052 top leaders of a nation, perhapsrepparttar 126053 world. Saying and doing nothing makes everyone else complicit inrepparttar 126054 crime. Evenrepparttar 126055 panel on Now avoided calling this action a crime. It was portrayed as a political expediency to support secular leadership in Pakistan, General Musharraf.

Nothing to Fear

Nothing to Fear

Terror is meant to change policy. Fear is meant to support policy. This isrepparttar Old World idea of balance. Guns change votes and that is why democracy is found nowhere. Nor would we want democracy if we had a choice, because we knowrepparttar 126035 majority is more often wrong than right. In fact,repparttar 126036 majority loves to be deceived and chooses deceivers to lead them downrepparttar 126037 road to glory. Europe has had so much of this last Century, it balks atrepparttar 126038 idea of supporting any potential 21st Century Hitler, on either side ofrepparttar 126039 Atlantic.

Is it becauserepparttar 126040 fearful are so much easier to control and manipulate that fear isrepparttar 126041 major product of world governments? Everywhere I look surely fear isrepparttar 126042 preferred tool. It is cheap and very easy to generate.

Oklahoma City andrepparttar 126043 World Trade Center attacks had a common goal and lesson. If your government cannot protect its own, how can it protect anyone else? Look at what your government does inrepparttar 126044 world, in your name. Do you approve? If you don't, what will you "free" people do about it? We will pay for it, of course, because we are free to pay for it.

We all would love to believe we are safer now that government is half awake. Instead, we senserepparttar 126045 truth that our vulnerability increases every day. As long as we can stay alert to strange activity around us we can survive terror from without. We won't even look atrepparttar 126046 threats to and inrepparttar 126047 Capitol. The game is called look over here so you don't see what we are doing over there. We look where they point and fix our attention on their message. Why don't we look elsewhere for some other point of view? See if there is a big picture.

In November, 2001, Commander Bush and Secretary Rumsfeld assistedrepparttar 126048 escape of some 8000 members of al Qaeda from Afghanistan to Pakistan. As Pakistani transport planes airlifted thousands through an official no fire corridor, those onrepparttar 126049 ground had enough time to hike torepparttar 126050 Pakistani border, about 120 miles away. This was fully reported onrepparttar 126051 PBS program, Now, with Bill Moyers. It aired 21 February, 2003. You can read an archived transcript @ PBS.Org.

We can imagine that cellular organization and skillful recruiting can doublerepparttar 126052 number of cells in a year or less. 8,000 al Qaeda set free in November 2001, could easily be 20,000 today. We might ask how this can be called homeland security. Al Qaeda is not just bodies, but minds united by a worthy cause. Change U.S. policies.

Another lesson of September 11 is that a very determined enemy hasrepparttar 126053 will to find a way. It took two attempts to destroy their priority target andrepparttar 126054 first attempt onrepparttar 126055 new priority target,repparttar 126056 U.S. Capitol, is fair warning. If I lived or worked within 50 miles ofrepparttar 126057 Capitol, I would not sleep well without self medicating and I assume most in that area do medicate.

So why wouldrepparttar 126058 President want to assist in a future attack onrepparttar 126059 very place he lives and works? The whole story is not to be found inrepparttar 126060 Now report, or with me. The advantagerepparttar 126061 terrorists have over America is a rich, fertile, collective imagination. Americans have little or none. So why don't we start reclaiming some imagination for ourselves? It could save a life or millions. It may be too late and not worth bothering about.
