Some have said that the World Trade Center was intentionally destroyed, and over 3000 people were murdered to create a Pearl Harbor style event to justify the Iraq war. People are free in America to speculate if they want, but we don't have to speculate about the mass murder of some three hundred thousand people in Iraq. It is obvious that America is stealing their oil and privatizing every aspect of the peoples lives. Iraq has been turned into one giant Bush, Cheney, Halliburton, Bechtel, "free market zone', just another name for total corporate enslavement.
The Bush regime has broken virtually every one of the Geneva Conventions. They have committed crimes for which there are not yet laws written. Crimes against the earth and the environment. His father before him was the first to use depleted uranium weapons, but the son, Dubya, has far exceeded the senior Bush, by spreading over 1000 metric tons of the deadly U238-isotope, America’s nuclear waste, over Iraq and Afghanistan, making childhood leukemia and spontaneous abortions commonplace, dooming the people of both countries to endless suffering and premature death. According to a UN Sub Commission report, cancer in Iraq has increased 1000%, and deformities 600%. Depleted Uranium has rendered Iraqi lands infertile, entered the food chain, and contaminated the ground water. With a half-life of 4.5 billion years the Uranium 238 dropped on Iraq and Afganistan by Bush and his father have rendered much of the two countries permanently unfit for human habitation.
Depleted uranium bombs are pyroplastic in nature, which means the substance ignites on impact. When it burns it actually changes at a molecular level, losing its solid form as it instantly turns in to a fine dust. It migrates into the ground water and is taken up into the air and blown by the wind. Although the dust is most concentrated in Europe and areas near the Iraq occupation, some of the deadly airborne depleted uranium reaches the upper atmosphere and is circulated by the jet stream and distributed over the entire surface of the earth. The use of depleted uranium weaponry by the United States, which defies all international treaties, will slowly annihilate all species on the planet including the human species, and yet this regime continues to contaminate the atmosphere with depleted uranium with full knowledge of its destructive potential.
On June 17, 2006 Austrian right-wing populist Joerg Haider, who is part of Austrian Chancellor Wolfgang Schuessel's government coalition, called President Bush a war criminal. Haider said in an interview with Austrian daily newspaper Die Presse: "He is a war criminal. He brought about the war against Iraq deliberately, with lies and falsehoods, The Iraqi population is suffering terribly. Bush took the risk of an enormous number of victims."
When was the last time an American president was openly called a 'war criminal'? It had never happened before this regime took over, but it has since become a common occurrence for Bush, Rumsfeld, and Cheney to be called war criminals by members of the world community.
As the U.S. presidential election approaches a grave danger may be looming over the American people. It seems that the neocons have gone beyond the point of return. They have more than proven their ruthlessness and willingness to do what ever it takes to hold onto power. They have trampled on both international law and the constitutional laws of the land. They cannot risk that a Kucinich or a Kennedy might obtain the office of president in this country ever again lest they face prosecution for their many crimes against America, humanity, and the planet. They cannot even pass their power to another republican, so terrible and dark are their crimes.
The neocons have gotten themselves and the American people into this mess because they live by a lawless philosophy of, 'me, my, what I can get for myself'. They abide by no laws other than the laws of profit and power. For them the Constitution is a meaningless inconvenience, or as George W. Bush has said, "It's just a god damned piece of paper".
The neocons may orchestrate another even bigger 9-11 event. They have many options which they can explore. Their favorite option is war and terror. To make matters infinitely worse for the American people it is rumored that the debt ridden American dollar is about to collapse. After all, the regime is burning the candle at both ends and in the middle with massive permanent tax cuts for the wealthy, a two trillion dollar 'never ending war', and the largest trade deficit in history, just to name a few things.
The collapse of the dollar would cause tremendous chaos and should cause the end of the Bush regime if America were still a country of laws. The regime may do some very unpleasant things to the American people in the event of the dollars collapse, particularly if it coincides with the presidential election. They intend to remain in power and continue their PNAC, Project for the New American Century, secret strategy for US global domination. To survive, a dollar collapse as a Scottish Socialist Voice article stated, "the US, needs to generate a trade surplus to get out of this one. To do that they must force US workers into near slavery, to get paid less than Chinese or Indian workers." This was speculation on the part of the writer as he was simply illustrating the hopelessness of America's economic situation from his point of view.
In February 2006 it was announced that Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root had been awarded a $385 million dollar contract by Homeland Security to construct detention and processing facilities in the event of a national emergency. In 2002, FEMA sought bids from major real estate and engineering firms to construct giant internment facilities capable of housing millions of people in the case of a so-called 'chemical, biological or nuclear attack or a natural disaster'.
The day after the September 11th, 2001 hijackings the neocons established a shadow government absent of both legislative and judicial branches. On October 26th, 2001 President Bush signed the USA Patriot Act into law, abrogating Constitutional rights and the Bill of Rights, and facilitating the declaration of Martial Law. On November 5th, 2002 Bush signed The Homeland Security act, consolidating the duties of 22 federal agencies into one cabinet level Department of Homeland Security under neocon control.
Bush also quietly strengthened and revised Public Law 101-647. Signed by his father in November 1990, Public Law 101-647, allows Bush to declare a national emergency for almost any reason, an earthquake, a terrorist attack, or even an economic crisis. In the event of a Bush declared emergency, the Federal Emergency Management Agency – FEMA, is empowered to implement the horrific Executive Orders 10995 through 11005. Here is just one of them: Executive Order #11000: Authorizes forced conscription of all Americans to work camps under supervision of Federal agents. This section also authorizes the splitting up of family units if deemed necessary by the government agencies in charge.
As acting president of the United States during the declaration of a national emergency and Martial Law Bush can also issue Executive Orders, granting him far reaching powers to unilaterally create law without congressional oversight and approval.
On October 11, 2002 the Senate voted 77 to 23 in favor of granting Bush independent war making powers to "preemptively strike" Iraq or any other country at his discretion.
It would seem that the preparations are in place to turn America into either a slave labor manufacturing giant or a slave labor driven war machine. All that is needed is a large terrorist event, the declaration of martial law, the institution of the shadow government, and the transferal of millions of Americans into huge manufacturing prisons. America might end up resembling World War Two era Japan. The entire island of Japan, every man woman and child had been conscripted to serve in the war effort against America. The American government learned a very hard lesson while fighting Japan. An entire country transformed into a war machine was a nearly an unbeatable foe. Should the neocons transform a country the size of America into such a war machine, and continue their depleted uranium radioactive march across the continents there will be great death and suffering ahead for humanity.
