Family reeling from matriarch's brutal slaying, Just One story about Bush's freed millions!

Remember this and his freed millions as we hear him brag about his accomplishments and see him given more power to abuse with this terrorism Bill!http://www.cnn.com/...
As he accuses us and FDR of being the Party of cut and run. http://www.foxnews.com/... Besides the fact that I hate him!

A reminder of reality! Remember this in November and stay motivated! BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- "They killed my mother! God help me, they killed my mother!" Osama Rumani sobbed into his cell phone before handing it to his brother Ali, who was crying even harder. http://www.cnn.com/...

At the other end of the line were relatives in Canada. As Ali spoke to them, Osama cursed the unknown killers through his tears: "May God orphan you. May you lose your mother and go through this pain. Shoot her once, shoot her twice, break her leg, her arms, but why this?"

Osama covered his face as he cried. His mother, Umm Luma, was an ordinary citizen, well-loved in the neighborhood where she was gunned down in front of her home.

In recent months, terrorists and death squads in Iraq have increased attacks on civilians. Though the Pentagon says the sectarian violence is not tantamount to civil war, it concedes that the swelling sectarian strife has produced an upsurge in attacks, kidnappings and execution-style killings.

According to a Pentagon report, Iraqi casualties jumped 51 percent this summer, and the Baghdad coroner's office reported receiving 3,400 bodies in June and July. Ninety percent of them had been killed execution-style, the report said.

Umm Luma lost her husband to illness two years ago, after she had reared four sons and two daughters.

"She had a strong personality, she was our leader at home," said her niece, Rafal Abbas.

But beneath Rafal's calm façade, she is haunted not only by the murder she witnessed, but also by the fear that the killers might come back.

Before Umm Luma's death, the family says it had received two written threats in a year. Wrapped in the second was a bullet. The message was chilling.

"The time has come to bring down fair punishment on you traitors, you half men, by chopping off your rotten heads that sold religion, honor and the country to the occupation," it began.

"Where will you escape Umm Luma? Await the rage, the slaughter and the murder. Our swords are on the necks of every traitor, agent and coward."

The threat was signed by the Brigades of Death, a Sunni extremist group. Like similar organizations, it claims Iraqi Shiites are conspiring with the Americans.

But Umm Luma had no political affiliations and neither do they, her relatives said. They said they had no enemies.

The family fled nonetheless, even though no one -- least of all Umm Luma -- thought the note-writers would kill a woman. The false sense of security led Umm Luma home after a week.

On September 16, she left the house to buy bread for breakfast and a car drove up. Someone inside called her name. Her niece remembers well how the events unfolded.

"Are you Umm Luma?" asked a man in the car.

"Yes, dear. What would you like?" Umm Luma responded.

The first bullet ripped through her arm, knocking her to the ground, said Rafal. The man, who couldn't have been older than 18, then exited the car and shot Umm Luma four more times.

"It is something that I will never forget," Rafal said.
As Rafal cradled her aunt's body in her arms, another car -- similar to the attackers' -- passed before a stranger on a motorcycle pulled up and asked what happened.

"He approached her and slapped her on the cheek, asking, 'Are you Umm Luma?' " Rafal recalled.

"Yes. Leave her alone. What do you want?" Rafal shot back.

"I wanted to see if she was dead or alive," he replied before following Rafal into the house.

"I was baffled by this guy. No one in the area had seen him before. He asked weird questions, 'Where are the boys? Where do they live? Tell the boys to come,' " Rafal said. She did not respond to the stranger.

Today, family members are living with this nightmare. They feel hunted, Rafal said.

"We are living in extraordinary fear. If I am home alone, I get terrified," she said. "Yesterday, the door blew open and I fainted because I thought that they had come for us."

As his cousin explained the family's fear, Osama broke down, sobbing and shaking as he recalled tending to his slain mother that day.

"I saw my mother on the street. I picked up her brains with my own hands and wrapped it," Osama said, repeating the words, "picked up her brains."

Umm Luma dreamed of a secure Iraq, Rafal said, but now her loved ones live with the fear that they might not live to see that dream's achievement.

"We are scared of all of Iraq," Rafal said. "If we go out, we are afraid someone is going to kill us. Even at home we are afraid and we pile things against the door." http://www.cnn.com/...


I reprinted this story in its entirety and included the video because I thought you all should read it at least and I thought you could use some reaffirmation as to what we must accomplish in November and why!

9/11 was not the defining moment of our Era as we are told. That has not occurred yet!

9/11 was just one tragic act that began with the implosion of the Soviet Empire. Ancient tribal rivalries (often wrapped in religion) have inspired nationalistic forces fighting to regain historic territories from the Balkans, to Africa, to the Middle East, and beyond.
This is true! However, 9/11 was allowed to happen so Bush could get us and the world behind what he calls a war on terrorism. That is merely the excuse to prosecute his new middle east and world order. If fighting terrorism was his goal he would have stayed in Afghanistan and attacked Pakistan who we know was funding Atta and the 9/11 attacks. Instead he is in cahoots with Pakistan to prosecute the so called war on terror.
Instead he used 9/11 as an excuse to attack Iraq and destabilize the already unstable middle east.
Now we hear U.N.. Secretary-General Kofi Annan has said leaders of Middle Eastern nations believe the Iraq war has "been a real disaster" for the region. It is but it is a plan not pure ineptitude. "Honestly, most of the leaders I spoke to felt the invasion of Iraq and its aftermath has been a real disaster for them," Annan said. "They believe it has destabilized the region. http://www.cnn.com/...

They are right to be worried, they are next! Bush must stay the course and for a reason they don't know! Iraq is in civil war and it will spread throughout the entire middle east.
Think about the events in proper context then tell me what you think! 9/11 was Bush's pearl harbor. Problem is, Bush is no FDR and has squirreled away any sympathy the world had for us.
As you may remember, Bush was looking for something to happen that would put the country and the world behind what he already had plans to do. 9/11 gave him that something.
He had plans right from the beginning to establish a new societal, middle east, and world order. That is why it was important to him to whip up a media and public fury which of course, he has done.
He then used the excuse of 9/11 to attack Iraq and unsettle the middle east so he could further his idea of a new middle east and world order. In doing so he guaranteed the loss of Afghanistan as well as Iraq and the entire middle east Of course lying all the while and whipping up as much support and frenzy as he could in the media and minds he controls.
At this point it behooves him to continue to ignore reality and continue to whip up a frenzy so he can continue staying the course in order to further prosecute his new middle east and world order.
We are all shamelessly being used so Bush can follow his plan for new order. http://www.anaveragepatriot.com/.... I wrote this 3 years ago but it is more obvious today. Let me know what you think? I won't get any deeper but it gets worse from here. Who knows what Iraq and Afghanistan will be like in a year or two? Plus I will guarantee you Bush will find an excuse to attack Iran so he can further his plans for the middle east and the world.
Any way you look at it Bush has screwed up and just made a bad situation worse, as usual. His new middle east order will happen but it is out of his control! Bush chose to ignore this as we have said many times with all other good advice so he could attack Iraq and start to implement his idea of a new middle east order. http://www.dailykos.com/....
This is only part of the equation! It will proceed and he won't admit it but it is out of his or anyone else's control!
Anyway, The fall of the Russian Empire set in motion something that began with the founding of Islam in 610. Islam was established by Muhammad in order to give Muslims a formal religion and sense of belonging with the Jews and Christians. It failed and Muslims have never been able to gain equal footing or be willing to accept their role in the worlds society.
The Christian Crusades to take back Jerusalem turned into a blood bath against Muslims. Our nation was born during the enlightenment and industrialization completed a gap between our societies which will never close. Next comes the Berlin Conference in the 19th century, allowing Europe to divvy up Africa which they then took what they wanted and then reset the boundaries creating a mess another mess with the Muslim world.
This is not though, a fight between the west and Islam. Islam is also fighting itself! It is a war between Islam and the world at large, everyone. As Bush has no tolerance of anything but his version of perverted Religion and Democracy. The Muslim Islamists have no tolerance of any other version of Islam than their own. They want all their lands back which can not happen. They want us off their lands so what does Bush do? He attacks Iraq and attempts to set up his idea of a new middle east order.
There is an easy answer to this and that is too fight and continue to fight, there is no easy way out though. We have no other choice as this will not be quelled by diplomacy. We must see this through to the end. Years ago I said like it or not, this will turn into a war against Islam. We will be forced to isolate them in their own lands for our own safety. It is an unpopular thought but we will not have a choice. Once on their own they will turn on themselves as they already are because they cannot tolerate any version of Islam other than their own.
Iraqi's are killing each other as we know,but Bush knew they would and ignored all good advice and intelligence to the contrary, as he had to in order to stay the course and prosecute his idea of new order. What no one seems to understand is the so called war against terrorism in the end will only be half of the war equation of the future still unfolding.
Reagan is credited with ending the cold war but as you pointed out, he set in motion many of the problems of today. Bush finished the job by belittling every country in the word and attacking Iraq unsettling the middle east.
As a result, with 2/3 of the world belonging to the non-aligned Nations and the enemies Bush has awakened wanting our demise by virtue of his superiority complex and destabilization of the already unstable middle east which we also contributed to by injecting Israel into the mix and again resetting boundaries as we saw fit, again ignoring traditional boundaries and dislikes. We will also be contending with China, Russia, and who knows who else? It looks like in the end of this still unfolding scenario that it will be Britain, Israel, and the U.S. against the World!
As we all know, the average Iraqi is far worse off and it will get a lot worse as this progress's. Likewise, as you know the average American is far worse off because of Bush. That too will get worse because he is not done completing his new societal order either. This is all still getting started and Bush is an idiot to declare we are winning anything! We will be okay but we have to face reality and realize that we will win this but ?

Terrorist's deadliest Weapon The Decider! Can we survive the only person in the world that matters?

Afghanistan specialist at the London School of Economics Dr. Giustozzi says As things are now, Afghanistan is actually moving backwards."I don't think the situation is hopeless, but if things continue as they are it soon will be."

This pisses me off! my son is on his way into this mess that Bush created by attacking and then ignoring Afghanistan in order to attack Iraq and prosecute his new middle east order under the false excuse of fighting terrorists that he is only growing and purposely in order to prosecute his new middle east order. it has nothing to do with fighting terrorism, only as an excuse to prosecute his new order. He still does not realize what we are up against and this mess is just starting.
http://edition.cnn.com/...

Giustozzi sees Crisis and instability!

This applies to Iraq, the middle east, and the entire world " Thanks to Bush" & My sons heading into this and I'm pissed!
http://www.dailykos.com/...

I worked on a story about Afghanistan last night then before I went to bed I was listening to Bushco discount the Generals saying Iraq is a mess and Rummy should be replaced! We know this is true but knowing Bush does not care what the Generals or anyone else thinks, it is very frustrating listening to Bush just dismiss the Generals because while knowing nothing, he knows better than everyone in the world.
Then I woke up this morning to hearing Bush saying again that our top terrorist analysts are all wrong. And only he the Decider knows the truth. http://www.dailykos.com/...

Next I hear that he has released selective pages of the analysts report and refused to let it all be released because he the Decider knows what we should see and no one else. Then I hear that he might release more but he was waiting until after the November elections.
I just can't believe this! As some of you know, I believe that Bush is only interested in fighting terrorism because it is a tool to be used for political gain and to prosecute his idea of a new middle east and world order.He carelessly proves it every day. http://www.dailykos.com/...

I refuse to believe that this ignoramus tells us, our experts, the entire world, that we do not matter. Only he the Decider matters because he knows what is best for the entire world while proving that he knows nothing at all and we are all powerless to stop him. He continues to get away with it! WTF! I just can't believe it! Please help me with this!

Democrats are right, we need new leadership But Creating terrorist's is necessary to Bush's plan!

Democrats seized on leaks from an intelligence assessment that said the Iraq war has increased the terrorist threat, saying it provided further evidence that Americans should choose new leadership in the November elections. They are right of course!
The Democrats hoped the report would undermine the GOP's image as the party more capable of handing terrorism as the campaign enters its final six-week stretch. "It's time for a new direction in this country," Emanuel, D-Illinois, said in the statement. man, you ain't lying!
"Press reports say our nation's intelligence services have confirmed that President Bush's repeated missteps in Iraq and his stubborn refusal to change course have made America less safe," said Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid. "No election-year White House PR campaign can hide this truth." http://www.cnn.com/...
They are not missteps to Bush, it is part of a plan!

From 9/11 he has been following a plan. Fighting terrorism was not it. It was just the reason he needed to attack Iraq and start to implement his new middle east and world order. Please read the following and you will understand everything.

As you may remember, Bush was looking for something to happen that would put the country and the world behind what he already had plans to do. 9/11 gave him that something, fighting terrorists!.now he could prosecute his new middle east and world order. These are not Bush misteps, these are all just to follow his plan for new order!
He then used the excuse of 9/11 to attack Iraq and unsettle the middle east guaranteeing the loss of Afghanistan, Iraq, and the entire middle east. He did all this so he could further his idea of a new middle east and world order. Of course lying all the while and whipping up as much support and frenzy as he could in the media and minds he controls.
At this point it behooves him to continue to ignore reality and continue to whip up a frenzy so he can continue staying the course in order to further prosecute his new middle east and world order. it also behooves him to create more terrorist in order to justify prosecuting his new world order.
We are all shamelessly being used so Bush can follow his plan for new order. I wrote this 3 years ago but it is more obvious today. Let me know what you think? I won't get any deeper but it gets worse from here. http://www.anaveragepatriot.com/....

It is up to us to stop this madness! We must stop this! We have got to put an end to this starting in November! We must take away his absolute power because by his original plan this can only end one way and it's getting closer. It has to according to Bush's plan to implement new world order he must first take on the world and we are getting there.
In closing , if you have already looked at the preceding manuscript I want you to remember the already fragile state of the planet. I ask you to keep Al Gore's Inconvenient truth in mind and following is the dire choice being ignored right now and the consequences of making the wrong one as we are letting Bush lead us to. We must stop it! http://anaverageamericanpatriot.blogspot.com/....

Bill Clinton attacks Fox 'hit job' on terror policy! Wallace was a worm, Bill was Masterful!

In a combative interview on "Fox News Sunday," former President Clinton defended his handling of the threat posed by Osama bin Laden, saying he had tried to put bin Laden out of business and that he had been attacked for his efforts by the same people who criticize him now for not doing enough. You know his hands were tied by laws and civil liberty advocates amongst others! View the Video, It was great!
http://www.cnn.com/video/player/player.html?url=/video/politics/2006/09/24/sot.clinton.bin.laden.fox
"That's the difference in me and some, including all of the right-wingers who are attacking me now," Clinton said in the interview broadcast Sunday. "They ridiculed me for trying. They had eight months to try, they did not try. I tried." Right on President Clinton!

Clinton accused host Chris Wallace of a "conservative hit job on me" and asked, "I want to know how many people in the Bush administration you asked this question of. I want to know how many people in the Bush administration you asked, 'Why didn't you do anything about the Cole?' I want to know how many people you asked, 'Why did you fire Dick Clarke?"' Fuckin A! That's because the answer is '0" President Clinton mastered this interview!

He was referring to the USS Cole, attacked by terrorists in Yemen in 2000, and former White House anti-terrorism chief Richard A. Clarke.

Wallace said Sunday that he was surprised by Clinton's response to "a very non-confrontational question, 'Did you do enough to connect the dots and go after Al Qaida?"' it was not a non confrontational question. He was smirking and trying to set him up but President Clinton called him on it. I thought it was great. Bill is still the master in a Debate.

"I was stunned by this kind of conspiratorial view of all this," Wallace said in a telephone interview. "All I did was ask him a question, and I think it was a legitimate news question. I was surprised that he would conjure up that this was a hit job." Wallace was an ass hole but Bill called him on it and had Wallace quaking and way off guard. I loved it!

Clinton said he "worked hard" to try to kill bin Laden. "I authorized the findings of the CIA to kill him," he said. "We contracted with people to kill him. I got closer to killing him than anybody's gotten since. And if I were still president, we'd have more than 20,000 troops there trying to kill him." Damn straight, Afghanistan was the real job not Iraq at all. Bush only used the excuse of 9/11 to attack Iraq, destabilize the middle east, and prosecute his new middle east and world order. It had nothing to do with terrorism!

He told Wallace, "And you got that little smirk on your face and you think you're so clever, but I had responsibility for trying to protect this country. I tried and I failed to get bin Laden. I regret it, but I did try and I did everything I thought I responsibly could."

Clinton also criticized the ABC miniseries, "The Path to 9/11," which critics accused of distorting his record on fighting terror.

"ABC just had a right-wing conservative running their little 'Pathway to 9/11,' falsely claiming it was based on the 9/11 Commission Report with three things asserted against me directly contradictory to the 9/11 Commission Report," he said. The 9/11 commission and report was a farce and a joke. did you see the factual video? It's unbelievable and will piss you off.
http://video.google.com/...
The interview was taped Friday following Clinton's three-day Global Initiative conference, and Clinton said Wallace was to have devoted half his questions to the conference. I saw it Sunday but it was an obvious setup and Bill called him on it!

Clinton told Wallace, "You set this meeting up because you're going to get a lot of criticism from your viewers because (Fox chief) Rupert Murdoch is supporting my work on climate change. And you came here under false pretenses and said that you'd spend half the time talking about _ you said you'd spend half the time talking about what we did out there to raise $7 billion-plus in three days from 215 different commitments, and you don't care."
http://www.newsday.com/news/local/wire/newyork/ny-bc-ny--clinton-foxnews0924sep24,0,4237047.story?coll=ny-region-apnewyork

I would laugh because President Clinton walked all over little Wallace but I just hat Fox news and their blatant right wing policies. I wish Oreilley or Hannity was the interviewer. You don't mess around with Bill!

Go underground young Bush Go Underground! Chavez is right about Bush, failure, and resignation!

As we watch daily the lower classes finding life more difficult because of the changes and constraints Bush has put on them and their lifestyle.Now he wants to screw with social security again and we can't allow him to go it. Anyone but him!
As we watch daily the results of Bush's purposeful attack on Iraq not to help free Iraqi's but to use the excuse of fighting terrorism in order to implement his new middle east order.
As we watch Afghanistan as well as Iraq and the entire middle east, knowing Bush's mess is just starting to bear its ugly fruit, and it will worsen soon.
As we watch the daily results of his politics of underhanded bullying and division gain further animosity and enemies on a daily basis. I have to say, I think Chavez is over the top but he is right! "He said Bush should renounce the presidency if he has any dignity.The president of the United States has failed completely.
http://www.onelocalnews.com/...

Knowing that Bush has made a total mess out of everything he has gotten his grubby little hands on which includes just about everything and he will not stop until he achieves what he calls a new societal, middle east, and world order which we will call a mess!
http://www.anaveragepatriot.com/...

Can you blame them! Since President Bush's approval rating sank to the lowest level of his presidency in May, nearly six in 10 of his appearances helping Republican candidates have been closed to all media coverage.
Unlike his barnstorming leading up to the 2002 congressional elections, when he was more popular and the divisive Iraq war had not begun, Bush has yet to hold a single traditional campaign-style rally for one of his party's hopefuls this election cycle.
Every one of his events for GOP gubernatorial, House and Senate candidates has been to raise money from faithful Republican donors -- not to urge support among the broader voting public.
The GOP's control of Congress is in danger. The tendency of many Republican candidates to keep their president under wraps is represented starkly in Bush's schedule in the week ahead. Go underground young Bush Go Underground! Chavez is right about one thing!

Republicans hardly have abandoned their enthusiasm for having the president exercise his talent at raising money for their campaigns. But of six fundraisers Bush is headlining this week, all but one -- for Alabama Gov. Bob Riley -- are private, by agreement between the White House and the campaigns.
http://www.foxnews.com/...

He is merely going underground. I have to say he can't go far enough underground for me and he still has time to make our lives here and around the world more miserable. He might be going underground but he is still causing problems daily and he will not stop.

Intelligence Report: Iraq war Making us less safe! This Can't be true! Bush said we're safer!

Reprinted from the Observer: America's spy agencies have concluded that the invasion of Iraq has created a flood of new Islamic terrorists and increased the danger to US interests to a higher level than at any time since the 9/11 attacks. Can't be, Bush says we're safer! The Decider knows better than our spy masters, ask him!
This grim assessment is provided in a classified intelligence document called the National Intelligence Estimate, large parts of which have been leaked to the New York Times. The report is the largest US intelligence survey of the global terror threat carried out since the invasion of Iraq in March 2003. You can bank on this assessment!

Its conclusion will surprise few critics of the Iraq war or US policy against terrorism. It is, however, a sharp contrast to the message often coming out of the White House and provides a far more harrowing assessment of terrorism than a congressional report published last week. Bush needs it to worsen in order to prosecute his new world order!

The study represents a consensus opinion of 16 different intelligence organizations. Entitled 'Trends in Global Terrorism: Implications for the United States', it was completed last April. Its stark warning is that the threat from Islamic terror groups and their jihadi philosophy has spread across the world. http://www.guardian.co.uk/...

My first question is, this report came out in April! What took it so long to see the light besides a leak which seems to be the only way we find things out! Of course Bush will deny this anyway. He will tell you he knows better but in reality as I continue to expound on, he must keep denying reality so he can stay the course and prosecute his original plan for new world order. He needs terrorism to grow in order to continue to prosecute his plan for new world order. http://www.anaveragepatriot.com/... Can't you see it now?

9/11 Press For Truth: Very Best accurate movie exposing 9/11 cover up!

As you know having read my past posts, I believe that 9/11 was allowed to happen and for a reason. I have never seen the facts that would back it up. Now I have them. This 911 movie, press for truth has got to be the very best movie exposing the 9/11 cover up. Bush, Rice, Cheney, everyone of them said over and over that there was no forewarning that terrorists were going to strike and that planes could be used as missiles to bring down buildings.

The movie documents factually that we heard in 1995 that planes may be used but never concerned ourselves about it. We received multiple warnings prior to 9/11 that terrorists were around, planes would be used, and the towers were coming down.

That really amazed me primarily because I have never seen the whole story together or backed up, I recommend everyone to see this and spread it around. Surprising to me was that prior to 9/11 one of the hijackers backed out and turned himself in, telling authorities what was going to happen. He was given 2 lie detector tests that he passed with ease. I don't recall who in the Administration said it. But they were told to let him go and send him back to London.

Once it did occur we attacked Afghanistan of course. As you remember, Bin laden and many of the leadership were trapped in Tora Bora. In the past I have said Bin Laden was allowed to escape so bush could use him to keep fervor up and Afghani's were credited with being responsible for his escape. Then I watch this and find out that it was us. We knew there were four ways out and only guarded three. We gave them a way out.

Not only that but I vaguely remember hearing about a 1,000 car caravan but it was never mentioned that we were bombing the area around it but allowed the 1,000 car caravan carrying the Bin Laden entourage to escape into Pakistan and at night, come on.

Now this part really irks me and I for one never heard anything about it and still don't. As far as I am concerned Pakistan is no friend of America's and will partner with India and turn on us when the time comes. We also heard over and over how Bush would track down any Al Qaeda finances and try anyone involved. He made a big deal out of the fact that someone outed the fact that we were checking out electronic transfers etc. Something he himself announced.

Now I watch this movie and find out that the head of the Pakistani ISI transferred $100,000 to Muhammad Atta just prior to the 9/11 attacks. This gets worse. Primarily because not only do we have records of this financing as well as pictures but we ignored it and supposedly are in cahoots with them. What happened to anyone caught aiding, abetting, or financing terrorism being hunted down?

To make it worse, the joke of a sideshow they called the 9/11 commission hearings was an obvious farce. Then i have to see this movie! We knew Rice and others were lying and Bush and Cheney were allowed to hold hands and lie together (take that any way you want). I think I vaguely remember hearing this but like everything else it was dismissed as insignificant. Anyway, the guy who ran Bush's election campaign if I remember correctly, is the one running the commission hearings.

He was the one who decided what was significant and what wasn't as well as what questions could be asked. What the hell is that. This entire thing was stacked against the truth and the facts getting out. I don't know if it is too late to do anything about it but it is our duty as Americans to hold these liars accountable. We owe it to the victims. We owe it to our children. We owe it to our history and we owe it to ourselves.
http://video.google.com/...

Please take the time and watch this. I know you never hear the truth from Bushco until it is too late to do anything about it and that is probably the case here to but we must all see the truth and hold these people accountable for what they have allowed to happen and only for selfish gain. It is unconscionable especially for an American or a so called leader. Following is why I believe 9/11 was allowed to happen.

As you may remember, Bush was looking for something to happen that would put the country and the world behind what he already had plans to do. 9/11 gave him that something.
He had plans right from the beginning to establish a new societal, middle east, and world order. That is why it was important to him to whip up a media and public fury which of course, he has done.
He then used the excuse of 9/11 to attack Iraq and unsettle the middle east so he could further his idea of a new middle east and world order. In doing so he guaranteed the loss of Afghanistan as well as Iraq and the entire middle east Of course lying all the while and whipping up as much support and frenzy as he could in the media and minds he controls.
At this point it behooves him to continue to ignore reality and continue to whip up a frenzy so he can continue staying the course in order to further prosecute his new middle east and world order.
We are all shamelessly being used so Bush can follow his plan for new order. http://www.anaveragepatriot.com/.... I wrote this 3 years ago but it is more obvious today. Let me know what you think? I won't get any deeper but it gets worse from here. Who knows what Iraq and Afghanistan will be like in a year or two? Plus I will guarantee you Bush will find an excuse to attack Iran so he can further his plans for the middle east and the world.
Any way you look at it Bush has screwed up and his new middle east order will happen but it is out of his control! Bush chose to ignore this as we have said many times with all other good advice so he could attack Iraq and start to implement his idea of a new middle east order. http://www.dailykos.com/....

It will proceed and he won't admit it but it is out of his or anyone else's control!

Bush threatened to bomb Pakistan after 9/11 would send troops in if he knew where Bin Laden was? He will get us in deeper somehow!

Fri Sep 22, 2006 at 07:55:14 AM PDT
Bush said Wednesday he would order U.S. forces to go after Osama bin Laden inside Pakistan if he received good intelligence on the fugitive al Qaeda leader's location. "Absolutely," Bush said.He made the comments Wednesday in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer.

Pakistan's president, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, told reporters Wednesday at the United Nations that his government would oppose any U.S. action in its territory
Then this morning I woke up to hear this crap! Son of a bitch! He won't stop instigating!

President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan said that after the September 11 attacks the United States threatened to bomb his country if it did not cooperate with America's campaign against the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Musharraf, in an interview with CBS that will air on Sunday, said the threat came from Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage and was given to Musharraf's intelligence director.
"The intelligence director told me that (Armitage) said, 'Be prepared to be bombed. Be prepared to go back to the Stone Age,"' Musharraf said. "I think it was a very rude remark."
http://articles.news.aol.com/...
As we know, Pakistani authorities recently signed a peace agreement with pro-Taliban tribal leaders in the country's restive northwest after two years of clashes with the traditionally autonomous tribes that left more than 600 Pakistani troops dead. But Aziz told CNN earlier this month that top terrorist leaders like bin Laden would have "no immunity" under the agreement. just what can they do if they can not even go into these areas?

Bush said "This notion that anybody who has a record as a terrorist will get safe haven -- we would not even think of allowing that," . I agree but Bush really worries me!

U.S. and NATO troops are now battling a Taliban resurgence in southeastern Afghanistan, and both Afghan and Pakistani officials have accused each other of not doing enough to capture pro-Taliban militants sneaking across the border. It will get a lot worse!http://www.cnn.com/... That is because Bush diverted men and equipment to his needless Iraq war and for a reason and it wasn't terrorism! Now that terrorists have safe haven I am worried about another TET!

Besides the fact that Bush has killed nearly as many as Bin Laden with his senseless war in Iraq. And knowing this is still just getting started because Bush has a little further to go before his plan for new middle east and world order will be fully implemented. He seems to take any opportunity to antagonize in order to further his plan for new order.
Following is why Bush must ignore reality, stay the course, antagonize where he can and as we all know he does it at every opportunity,and it has nothing to do with terrorism.
As you may remember, Bush was looking for something to happen that would put the country and the world behind what he already had plans to do. 9/11 gave him that something.
He had plans right from the beginning to establish a new societal, middle east, and world order. That is why it was important to him to whip up a media and public fury which of course, he has done.
He then used the excuse of 9/11 to attack Iraq and unsettle the middle east so he could further his idea of a new middle east and world order. Of course lying all the while and whipping up as much support and frenzy as he could in the media and minds he controlled.
At this point it behooves him to continue to ignore reality and continue to whip up a frenzy so he can continue staying the course in order to further prosecute his new middle east and world order.
We are all shamelessly being used so Bush can follow his plan for new order. http://www.anaveragepatriot.com/... I wrote this 3 years ago but it is more obvious today. Let me know what you think? I won't get any deeper but it gets worse from here.

Knowing that Bush must create disorder before he can replace it with his idea of order you have to believe that sending troops into Pakistan would only be done with the goal of purposely antagonizing them into repelling us and giving Bush an excuse to have to fight and thus furthering his idea of a new world order.

This guy is underhanded and as ruthless in his goal of having his idea of a new middle east and world order as those he aims to fight. this guy just won't stop! There is no need for us to send troops into Pakistan even if we knew where he was or to threaten to Bomb them unless Bush is purposely instigating his new world order as I keep asserting remember, he must create disorder before he can replace it with his new order. It will not work!

Chavez Says U.S. Empire Will Soon Fall, Reinforced non aligned Nations standing in the shadows?

The United States will soon lose its place as leader of the world, and the United Nations is a broken organization that is beyond repair, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Wednesday.
"The United States empire is on its way down and it will be finished in the near future, inshallah," Chavez told reporters, ending the statement with the Arabic phrase for "God willing."
Chavez said that the United Nations is a "deceased" organization because it was formed to bridge the differences between the United States and Russia, and a brand new international organization would have to be formed to replace it.
Earlier, Chavez initiated a verbal assault on President Bush, calling him "the devil" during an insult-riddled address to world leaders at the U.N. General Assembly.

"The devil came here yesterday," Chavez said, gesturing to where Bush had stood during his speech on Tuesday. "He came here talking as if he were the owner of the world."
He later said he was referring to President Bush when he spoke of the devil.

Chavez held up a book by American leftist writer Noam Chomsky "Hegemony or Survival: America's Quest for Global Dominance" and recommended it to everyone in the General Assembly. http://www.foxnews.com/...

Chavez talks too much! I am afraid I agree with this though! Sounds to me lie the non aligned Nations plan on taking over with many eager helpers! What do you think?

The BBC reported that the meeting of non aligned Nations now consists of 118 countries, mostly from the developing world.
The delegates representing almost two-thirds of all the countries in the world gave their approval to a document which spells out the points they agree on.
There is strong condemnation of Israel's recent intervention in Lebanon, a call for the United Nations to be more representative of smaller nations, support for Iran's nuclear energy plans and implicit criticism of much of US foreign policy.

Several of the more than 50 heads of state and government attending the meeting are known for their strong criticism of the United States.

Many of the world leaders attending the summit used their seven allocated minutes at the podium to vent their anger at the Bush administration. The senior North Korean delegate said that American threats had forced his country to arm itself with nuclear weapons.
The most significant agreement occurred at the summit sidelines - Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of India and President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan announced that they would re-start stalled peace talks and co-operate in the fight against terrorism.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/....

Even Kofi said the Nam was important. You have to wonder what is going on with that and the anti U.S. movement. It can't be ignored any longer.


This is not good! Bush better start paying attention to the growing section of the world calling for America's demise and an end to Bush's and America's imperialism!
http://www.cbc.ca/....

On top of that of course, we have the many enemies he is making in prosecuting his new middle east order!

From 9/11 he has been following a plan. Fighting terrorism was not it. It was just the reason he needed to attack Iraq and start to implement his new middle east and world order. Please read the following and you will understand everything.
9/11 was Bush's pearl harbor. Problem is, Bush is no FDR and has squirreled away any sympathy the world had for us.

http://www.anaveragepatriot.com/....

Being a pompous arrogant Ass is serving only one purpose and it is hitting critical mass as Bush continues to ignore reality so he can follow his plan for new societal, middle east, and world order.
With the middle east failing thanks to Bush's meddling, Iraq and Afghanistan already lost thanks to Bush attacking Iraq diverting forces from the real goal and destabilizing the already fragile middle east! With the anti American and Britain Nations growing and now including 2/3 of the World, on top of the enemies he has made for us in his Middle East tampering. We had better do something ourselves. Bush will not and will only continue to ignore reality so he can have his plan for new world order that is heading for disaster!

I am afraid Bush has stacked the deck for ??? and I don't know what to say! Having read all this in context tell me what you think! really want to hear it!

Nov looking Good:Patrick wins Dem primary! Attacked as Tax & Spend Liberal! It's Old now,Enough!

I must say first that I am from Massachusetts. I am happy to have seen that we had a good field to pick from in Chris Gabrieli and Tom Reilley! I happened to have voted for Deval Patrick but believe Gabrieli and Reilley would also have done us proud.
My issue is with Kerry Healey who came out before Deval's victory was even announced and started the standard Repub underhanded negative attacks calling Patrick just another tax and spend Liberal. What??
I think we are all sick of the two faced underhanded politics and mindless pigeon holing rhetoric that has served the Repubs so well in the past.It is beyond me how the don't tax the rich, overspend, debt driving Repubs, knowing what they have really done to America just financially, can with a straight face criticize Democrats. It just blows me away.

Any way, I would say it looks very good for us to take our State back in the fall after a 4 term drought. If you are interested here are a few facts on our Primary.

Deval Patrick, a former top U.S. civil-rights enforcer, will try to become Massachusetts' first black governor and break a 16-year Republican hold on the office after winning the liberal state's Democratic primary on Tuesday.
Patrick, 50, who served as assistant U.S. attorney general for civil rights under former President Bill Clinton, faces Republican lieutenant governor Kerry Healey and millionaire independent Christy Mihos in the November 7 general election.
Patrick carried every county with 49 percent of the vote, about double that of his rivals -- venture capitalist Christopher Gabrieli and attorney-general Thomas Reilly -- after the state's costliest gubernatorial primary.
November's winner will succeed Republican Gov. Mitt Romney, who is expected to run for the White House in 2008. Despite Massachusetts' reputation as a liberal bastion and a record of backing Democrats for president, moderate Republicans have held the governor's office for four consecutive terms.
After winning her party's nomination unopposed, Healey quickly branded Patrick a tax-and-spend liberal who is weak on crime and said a Republican was needed to balance the Democratic-controlled state Legislature.

Patrick's grass-roots campaign, focused on "the politics of hope," rallied party faithful and appealed more broadly to moderate Democrats impressed by the clean-cut, Harvard-educated corporate lawyer and his life story.

Patrick grew up poor on Chicago's South Side, living on welfare after his saxophone-player father left the family to join avant-garde jazz musician Sun Ra when Patrick was five years old. http://www.washingtonpost.com/...

Anyway, despite the underhanded tricks the Repubs will continue to play this fall I am encouraged after listening to the lowlife Repub tactics once again, that the public realizes the truth now and we will do well all around in November. How do you all feel about it?

In your face world! With obvious failure of his plan for the world, we must stop him!

Reuters, CBS, NBC,ABC, all report as we know that Bush is facing growing international skepticism over his policies for Iran and Iraq. He addresses world leaders at a time when his administration is confronted by an array of foreign policy woes and at home by a Democratic challenge to wrest control of Congress from his fellow Republicans.
His speech today to the 192-nation General Assembly will focus on his vision for Middle East democracy, a source of doubt in many world capitals given unrelenting violence in Iraq three years after a U.S.-led invasion toppled Saddam Hussein.Bush's speech to the UN today is expected to highlight his democracy push in the Middle East, a strategy some of Washington's foes in the region see as a pretext for bullying countries it opposes.
You know he will continue to ignore the world! It's up to us to stop him!
"He will have very concrete suggestions about the path forward for realizing his vision of freedom," an administration official said.
But Bush's comments will also be a reminder of the foreign policy challenges he faces. U.S. forces remained bogged down in Iraq, a war increasingly unpopular with the American public, and Baghdad's nascent government is struggling for control.

Lebanon's fragile ruling coalition, once hailed by Bush as a democratic success story, was severely weakened by the month-long Israel-Hizbollah war.

Critics say Bush's democracy campaign backfired in the Palestinian territories, where the Islamist group Hamas won elections and is now under U.S.-led diplomatic isolation. President George W. Bush faced growing international skepticism over his policies for Iran and Iraq as he arrived in New York on Monday for a U.N. General Assembly session. http://in.today.reuters.com/...
He doesn't care & for a reason!

N. K. Afghanistan, China, Russia, it's building thanks to Bush's ignorance and new world order!
I ignoring the reality of the ever growing (thanks to Bush, summit of the Non-Aligned Movement amongst everything else, must stop or we are in trouble! The meeting was held in Havana and ended with delegates agreeing a final statement. The BBC reported that the meeting now consists of 118 countries, mostly from the developing world.

It is up to us to stop this madness! We must stop this! We have got to put an end to this starting in November! We must take away his absolute power because by his original plan this can only end one way and it's getting closer and it has to according to Bush's plan to implement new world order he must first take on the world and we are getting there.
In closing , if you have already looked at the preceding manuscript I want you to remember the already fragile state of the planet. I ask you to keep Al Gore's Inconvenient truth in mind and following is the dire choice being ignored right now and the consequences of making the wrong one as we are letting Bush lead us to. We must stop it! http://anaverageamericanpatriot.blogspot.com/...

He's threatening us! Bush threatens terror program cancellation! Britain warns of International condemnation!

The Bush administration and three prominent Republican senators opposing its effort to codify broad standards for terror-detainee treatment gave signs of seeking compromise today, as both sides face intense political pressures over their positions.
The president has demanded support for his proposals -- vital, he argues, to protecting American security -- to allow for a tough but undefined set of procedures for interrogations by the Central Intelligence Agency and for a system of military tribunals for terror suspects that might deny them the evidence on which they are being tried.
Mr. Bush threatened flatly on Friday to cancel the C.I.A. interrogation program if Congress did not accept the administration approach.

If it seemed that our country was trying to redefine the Geneva Convention to meet the needs of the C.I.A. why can't every other country redefine the Geneva Convention to meet the needs of their secret police?" Mr. Graham said on "Face the Nation" on CBS. "It would be a disaster." http://www.nytimes.com/...

I have to agree with this. Knowing Bush, you cannot trust him or his motives! To my surprise Britain is very concerned and speaking out about what is happening with thie in the U.S. Senate.

Britain's Attorney-General has warned the US that its bill to try to limit its obligations under the Geneva Conventions while interrogating and trying detainees risked international condemnation.

Lord Goldsmith waded into the row after a US Senate committee rejected the bill and backed alternative legislation proposed by a Republican senator, John McCain, and supported by George Bush's former secretary of state, Colin Powell.

The Attorney-General's comments, delivered in a lecture to lawyers in Chicago, signal an attempt by Britain to bring the US back in line with international law. Lord Goldsmith said he had thought hard about whether to interfere in a "live and sensitive, domestic political debate", but "this is an international standard of very considerable importance and its content must be the same for all nations". http://www.smh.com.au/...



It is our experience that Bush will hold his breath, take his ball and go home as I wish he would, until he gets his way. I know we need every tool! available in order to prosecute the war on terror. I for one just can't trust Bush with any tools. It is not the tool, it is the fact that he has abused every one he gets his hands on.

I don't understand why we cannot stay status quo on this and let other Nations do the extreme interrogation as currently happens. I think it is very telling that Britain is speaking out against Bush. What are your thoughts on this issue?

Smart Ass Bush better stop Ignoring reality: NAM(118 Nations), Iraq, Middle East...

Just in Time for Elections! Rep. Bob Ney agrees to plead guilty after he pleads not guilty!

by jmsjoin [Unsubscribe] [Edit Diary]
Sat Sep 16, 2006 at 07:10:01 AM PDT
Good timing: Rep. Bob Ney agrees to plead guilty after he pleads not guilty! He got caught, It's Too Familiar!

U.S.. Rep. Bob Ney, R-Ohio, speaks about election reform at Cleveland State University in Cleveland, in this Nov. 30, 2005 file photo in the link. Ney is expected to plead guilty as early as Friday, Sept. 15, 2006 to at least one criminal charge in an election-year congressional corruption investigation, Republican officials said Thursday night.
Ohio Rep. Bob Ney admitted improperly accepting tens of thousands of dollars worth of trips, meals, sports tickets and casino chips while trying to win favors for a disgraced Washington lobbyist and a foreign aviation company run by a gambler known as "the Fat Man."

Ney, a six-term Republican, had defiantly denied any wrongdoing for months, but he reversed course and agreed to plead guilty in court papers filed Friday. Prosecutors will recommend he serve 27 months in prison. Ney was expected to formally plead guilty in court Oct. 13.

"I have made serious mistakes and am sorry for them," said Ney, 52, whose lawyer said he had begun treatment for alcohol dependency. "I am very sorry for the pain I have caused to my family, my constituents in Ohio and my colleagues."
Ney became the first lawmaker to admit wrongdoing in the election-year congressional corruption probe spawned by disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Ney said he was hopeful "that someday the good I have tried to do will be measured alongside the mistakes I have made." He got caught, that's all. If not he never would have stopped!

He agreed to plead guilty to making false statements and conspiracy to commit fraud, make other false statements and violate U.S. lobbying restrictions. The charges could carry a prison sentence of up to 10 years and fines of up to $500,000 plus repayment of any improper gifts.

Prosecutors said Ney improperly accepted trips to play golf, gamble or vacation in Scotland, New Orleans and New York between August 2002 and August 2003. The total cost of the trips by Ney and others exceeded $170,000, court papers said. Ney also admitted accepting meals and sports and concert tickets for himself and his staff from Abramoff and his lobbyists.

Separately, Ney twice flew to London during 2003 to meet with a foreign businessman who was not identified by name in court papers. The foreign businessman is Fouad al-Zayat, a Syrian-born partner in FN Aviation of Cyprus, according to two people close to the investigation. These people spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the plea agreement. Al-Zayat is known in Britain as a prominent gambler nicknamed "The Fat Man."

The February 2003 meeting with FN Aviation was arranged to discuss U.S. sanctions against the sale of aviation parts to Iran, but those involved did not discuss specific sales or proposals, according to one of the people familiar with the case.

The Justice Department said Ney on those trips accepted thousands of dollars worth of free casino chips from the foreign businessman and parlayed them into $50,000 in total gambling winnings playing card games. On one occasion, Ney gave $5,000 to a staff member to carry through U.S. Customs so that Ney could report receiving a lesser amount, prosecutors said.

FN Aviation paid the $5,414 cost of the four-day February trip by Ney and an aide, according to Ney's congressional travel records.

The Justice Department said the foreign businessman and his partner sought Ney's help obtaining a travel visa and selling U.S.-made airplanes and parts to a foreign country, and that the businessman's company paid for Ney's trip to London in February 2003.

FN Aviation's former U.S. lobbyists, Roy Coffee and David DiStefano _ a former Ney aide _ have said they worked with Ney to seek a special government permit to let FN Aviation sell plane parts to Iran despite U.S. trade sanctions. The permit never was awarded.

DiStefano was Ney's chief of staff before becoming a lobbyist and coordinated Ney's first congressional campaign in 1994.

"People must have faith and confidence in their elected officials," said Alice Fisher, who runs the criminal division of the Justice Department. She said Ney had "acted in his own interests, not in the interests of his constituents."

House Majority Leader John Boehner, also from Ohio, described Ney as a skilled lawmaker and good friend. "Clearly Bob made mistakes, and he is now feeling the full weight of those mistakes," Boehner said. "His actions violated the law, and he must be held accountable."

Ney did not participate in any of the 10 roll call votes in the House on Thursday, an indication he was away from the Capitol.

Republican voters in Ney's district selected a replacement candidate Thursday as word of legal developments surfaced. State Sen. Joy Padgett, backed by party leaders, won easily and will face Democrat Zack Space in the fall.

Ney had a unique power perch in the House when the year dawned, as chairman of the committee with jurisdiction over the internal workings of the 435-member chamber. Speaker Dennis Hastert pressured Ney into surrendering his chairmanship earlier this year as concern rippled through the GOP ranks about the Abramoff scandal.

Still, as recently as early summer, Ney said he intended to seek re-election in the sprawling, rural district in eastern Ohio he has represented since 1994. He changed his mind at the prodding of party leaders who feared the loss of his seat in November if he remained on the ballot.

At Abramoff's request, prosecutors said, Ney proposed four amendments in early 2002 that would have helped Abramoff and his lobbying clients. These included proposals to allow commercial gambling by two Indian tribes, help a Russian drink manufacturer and compel the U.S. government to give property to a religious school founded by Abramoff.

Another one gets caught. 6 terms! You have to wonder how many years has he been messing over the public. Why are these guys all of a sudden sorry when they get caught lying and abusing public trust? Are they really only sorry because they got caught?

Anyway I think this sends another great message with elections rapidly approaching and I think it should be kept alive as an election tool! http://www.chron.com/...

NATO not coming through in Afghanistan, Iraq lost, Time for American Common Sense!

With Afghanistan at its worst since the war began and getting worse! With a world record 6,100 pounds of opium grown this year. We obviously can't control the insurgents base of finance let alone the ever growing insurgency or whatever you want to call it, thanks to Bush attacking Iraq and supposedly freeing millions.
Okay, they are killing 100 or so of their own people and I guess they are free to do it thanks to Bush. With the so called sectarian violence running amok. Which by the way seems to amount to Iran backed Shiite Hezbollah fighting Saudi backed Sunni Al Qaeda, I heard today that the judge told Saddam he was not a dictator. Maybe we should put him back in control and keep an eye on him as we do with the current Government. I think it would put a lot of stability back into the region despite what we may think about Saddam.
It is time to hand the reigns over to Iraq at any rate and see how much they want their Democracy. If they do not want it bad enough to fight to the last death the insurgents will kill them and they better realize this. we have got to get re involved like we should have been from the beginning in Afghanistan. I will unfold a great plan after this recent story about NATO.

NATO remains desperately short of reinforcements for its Afghanistan campaign, despite an offer by Warsaw yesterday to send 1000 new troops to join Poland's existing 100-strong contingent.
The announcement came hours after pleas for extra soldiers to reinforce the US, Australian and other Western troops fighting in southern Afghanistan met a disappointing response at a NATO meeting yesterday, when there was not a single offer of new troops.
Commanders in Afghanistan had called for at least 2500 more troops because of growing and surprisingly violent Taliban resistance over the past month, but diplomats from the 26 NATO nations sat on their hands when volunteers were requested at the meeting in Belgium. http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/...

If we stay in Iraq we will only give the insurgents a reason to go there and fight. it is time to engage brain, adapt, and overcome. We will be fighting them here whether we leave tomorrow or a hundred years from now. He must stop that assholish argument, it is ridiculous! it is time for us to step back and take the role we should be playing had we learned anything in Vietnam.

We should be taking a purely Advisory role at this point. If they need us they know where we are. If they need us too much, we know it is not going to work. We have 36,000 troops in Afghanistan and 150,000 in Iraq. At this point those numbers should be reversed. Our goal is supposed to be freeing Afghanistan. Not happening! With Pakistan setting up a haven for Al Qaeda and announcing there are more Al Qaeda in Pakistan than before the war and knowing attacks on out military and the Afghan Government are becoming more frequent and violent.

I am increasingly more concerned that we are setting the military in Afghanistan up for another TET. Please correct me if I am wrong! Iraq is lost as is the middle east thanks to Bush attacking Iraq and unsettling the region. http://www.dailykos.com/

We can still concentrate on Afghanistan before it gets out of control. Adding a few troops will not do the job! The insurgents will keep coming as this is still just getting started. At least we will be concentrated on one effort at least for now. Someone has got to start thinking like a military man not a politician with an agenda before it is too late.

Mideast leaders view Iraq war as disaster: Too late,the entire middle east is by Bush's design!

U.N.. Secretary-General Kofi Annan has said leaders of Middle Eastern nations believe the Iraq war has "been a real disaster" for the region. They better be concerned. They are next!
"Honestly, most of the leaders I spoke to felt the invasion of Iraq and its aftermath has been a real disaster for them," Annan said. "They believe it has destabilized the region. Annan went on to describe "two schools" of thought -- those who believe the United States should stay, "having created the problem, they cannot walk away," and those, "particularly in Iran," who "believe the presence of the U.S." is a problem.
Annan said it is his opinion that "the U.S. has found itself in a position where it cannot stay and it cannot leave." http://www.cnn.com/...
They are right and it is for a reason. Both schools of thought are right. America is the problem and Bush must stay the course and for a reason they don't know!
9/11 was Bush's pearl harbor. Problem is, Bush is no FDR and has squirreled away any sympathy the world had for us.
As you may remember, Bush was looking for something to happen that would put the country and the world behind what he already had plans to do. 9/11 gave him that something.
He had plans right from the beginning to establish a new societal, middle east, and world order. That is why it was important to him to whip up a media and public fury which of course, he has done.
He then used the excuse of 9/11 to attack Iraq and unsettle the middle east so he could further his idea of a new middle east and world order. In doing so he guaranteed the loss of Afghanistan as well as Iraq and the entire middle east Of course lying all the while and whipping up as much support and frenzy as he could in the media and minds he controls.
At this point it behooves him to continue to ignore reality and continue to whip up a frenzy so he can continue staying the course in order to further prosecute his new middle east and world order.
We are all shamelessly being used so Bush can follow his plan for new order. http://www.anaveragepatriot.com/.... I wrote this 3 years ago but it is more obvious today. Let me know what you think? I won't get any deeper but it gets worse from here.
Who knows what Iraq, the middle east, and Afghanistan will be like in a year or two? Plus I will guarantee you Bush will find an excuse to attack Iran so he can further his plans for the middle east and the world.
Any way you look at it Bush has screwed up and his new middle east order will happen but it is out of his control! Bush chose to ignore this as we have said many times with all other good advice so he could attack Iraq and start to implement his idea of a new middle east order. http://www.dailykos.com/....

It will proceed and he won't admit it but it is out of his or anyone else's control!

Iran to help Iraqi Gov't, Sunni Shiite Divide grows deeper! middle east breakdown out of control!

I haven't heard anything yet but Iran coming out and officially announcing they will help Iraq is not good but will ensure further sectarian violence and the Bush initiated middle east breakdown! Shiite controlled Iran helping the Shiite dominated government of Iraq will only serve to further the so called sectarian violence that Bush chose to ignore before he attacked Iraq to initiate his new order.That is Hezbollah on one side!
On the other side is the Sunni that just happens to include Sunni dominated Al Qaeda and many of them originated from Sunni protector Saudi Arabia. So when the shit does hit the fan Saudi Arabia already has its fighters in Iraq in the form of Al Qaeda.

As we know Iran's president who was hosting a visit from Iraq's prime minister and expressing support for his country's beleaguered war-torn neighbor -- says the Islamic republic supports a "united" Iraq and will help the nation "establish full security," an Iranian news agency reported. Ahmadinejad spoke at a news conference with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki after private talks were held on Tuesday, the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency reported. It is al-Maliki's first visit to Iran since he became prime minister earlier this year.
"Iran will provide assistance to the Iraqi government to establish full security. We believe strengthening the Iraqi government is tantamount to promoting security, peace and friendship in that country," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying.
Iraq is currently in the throes of deep civil strife, enduring a persistent insurgency and an upsurge of sectarian violence this year between Sunnis and Shiites in Baghdad and other cities.
American and British officials have claimed that Iran is attempting to fan the flames of insecurity in Iraq, where the government is trying to promote national unity among Sunnis, Shiites, and Kurds. Iran and Iraq are linked in large part by common religion, but their relationship is complicated.

Iran -- populated largely by Persians, Azeris and Kurds -- is predominantly Shiite Muslim. About 60 percent of the people in Iraq are Shiite, most of whom Arabs.
Iraq's new government is dominated by a Shiite-led coalition. Both Ahmadinejad and al-Maliki are Shiites.

A prominent Sunni member of Iraq's parliament questioned al-Maliki's visit in light of this incident."I am very surprised that a prime minister would visit a country holding symbols of Iraq's sovereignty," he said.

Ahmadinejad also boosted the idea of a "united and independent Iraq" that "will be beneficial to security and progress of the entire region."He "pointed out that both countries have close ties in both cultural and religious areas, and they have reached agreement in trade, transportation and energy," IRNA said.

The Islamic Republic of Iran and Iraq enjoy deep-rooted historical relations beyond normal ties between the two neighboring states," Ahmadinejad is quoted as saying. "We regard progress, independence and territorial territory of Iraq as our own."
And, he added, "we completely support the Iraqi government and parliament and will transfer our experience to our Iraqi friends in all fields including reconstruction of the country and economic cooperation."

Describing his talks with al-Maliki as "very good," he said the countries "share" a "common stance on regional and international issues. Both sides are determined to consolidate brotherly ties."http://www.cnn.com/...

The Muslim Civil War, the Sunni-Shia divide in the Middle East is now deeper than the antagonism between Israel and the Arabs? You might think so given the response of some Arab governments to Hezbollah's decision to attack Israel. Even as Israeli bombs fell on Beirut and Tyre, Saudi Arabia, perhaps the most conservative Arab Muslim state of all, openly condemned the actions of the Shia Hezbollah in instigating conflict with Israel. Never before in the history of the Arab-Israeli conflict has a state that considers itself a leader of the Arab Muslim peoples backed Israel so openly.

Moreover, Saudi Arabia's breach with Hezbollah is not a one-time occurrence. Egypt and Jordan have also roundly condemned Hezbollah and its leader, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, for their adventurism.

The Shia-Sunni divide has existed from the dawn of Islam, but the geographical and ethnic isolation of non-Arab Shiite Iran, together with Sunni Arab countries' dominance of their Shia minorities, mostly kept this rivalry in the background. These tensions further receded in the tide of the "Islamization" created by the Iranian revolution, for in its wake Arabs' sectarian identity as Sunni was pushed further into the background as a generalized "Islamic" assertiveness appeared.

That all changed when Al Qaeda, a Sunni terrorist force that draws heavily on Saudi Wahabbi ideology and personnel, launched its attacks on America in September 2001. A specifically Sunni brand of militant Islam was now on the march. When the United States initiated wars on both the Sunni Taliban in Afghanistan and the Sunni Iraqi regime, this new radical Sunni strain became even more emboldened. Bush Fucked Up!!!

In Sunni eyes, the Shia not only dominate the oil-rich areas of Iran, Iraq, and the eastern region of Saudi Arabia, but are - through the actions of Hezbollah - attempting to usurp the role of "protector" of the central dream of all Arabs, the Palestinian cause. It is because the Saudi royal family derives its legitimacy from a strict form of Sunni Islam and doubts the loyalty of its Shia population that the Kingdom has turned on Hezbollah.

Ironically, it is America, Saudi Arabia's longtime protector, which made Shia empowerment possible by overthrowing Saddam Hussein and bringing Shiite parties to power in Iraq. The Bush administration seems to recognize what it has done; as the Shia arc rises in the east of the Arab Muslim world, the US is attempting to strengthen its protection of the Sunni arc - Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia - in the region's west. Israel, the once implacable enemy of the Arab cause, now seems to be slotted into this defensive structure. Too late!

But such a defensive posture is bound to be unstable, due to pan-Arab feelings. Today, ordinary Saudi citizens are glued to Al Jazeera and other Arab satellite TV networks to follow events in Gaza and south Lebanon. They see Arab (not Shiite) blood being shed, with only Hezbollah fighting back. In their eyes, Hezbollah has become a heroic model of resistance.

This is causing the Saudi state to deepen the Sunni-Shia schism. Following the Kingdom's official denunciation of Hezbollah, the Saudi state called on its official Wahhabi clerics to issue fatwas condemning Hezbollah as Shiite deviants and heretics. Such condemnations can only sharpen sectarian divisions within Saudi Arabia and the region.
As these antagonisms deepen, will the Sunni regimes come to believe that they need their own Hezbollah to fight in their corner? If that is what they conclude, they need not look far, for many such fighters have already have been trained - by Al Qaeda.

U.S. interests already hit also Al Qaeda says fight Peacekeepers, we were right!

c Al Qaeda used the fifth anniversary of September 11 to urge Muslims to hit Western interests and said U.S. allies Gulf Arab states and Israel would be the next targets in a campaign to seal the West's economic doom.
"The strongest way to aid our Muslim brothers ... is to strike the interests of Jews and Crusaders and those who cooperate with them," deputy al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri said in a video posted on a Web site used by Islamist militants. Today an Al Qaeda offshoot suspected in U.S. Embassy attack in Syria http://www.cnn.com/...
In a message to Western people, Zawahri said it was not worth defending forces deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan because they were doomed to failure.

"You have to bolster your defenses in two areas ... the first is the Gulf, from which you will be evicted, God willing, after your defeat in Iraq and then your economic doom will be achieved," he said in the video.

"And the next (target) is Israel. The current of holy war is closing on it and your end there will put an end to the Zionist-crusader supremacy."
"There must be a focus on their economic interests and in particular on stopping the theft of Muslims' plundered petroleum," he said in a 76-minute interview with al Qaeda's media arm -- al-Sahab.

FIGHT THE PEACEKEEPERS Zawahri called for fighting United Nations forces in Lebanon, condemning them as "enemies of Islam" in the first direct threat against the peacekeepers deployed to oversee a ceasefire that ended Israel's war with Hizbollah guerrillas. Continued...
http://today.reuters.com/...

We talked about the fact that U.N. involvement would trigger the next step in a total middle east breakdown. Bush knows the Islamists would not tolerate our presence there any more than they do in Iraq. We already discussed also how this would elevate operations against Israel, further involvement by Syria and Iran, and give Bush his reason to attack Iran as he so badly wants!
This would be the final step to Bush's new middle east order! We were right again!

Bush's planned from the beginning middle east order moves closer towards its goal!

More people blame Bush for 9/11! They are waking up but the wheels are in motion and will not stop with his Presidency!

The percentage of Americans who blame the Bush administration for the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington has risen from almost a third to almost half over the past four years, a CNN poll released Monday found.
Asked whether they blame the Bush administration for the attacks, 45 percent said either a "great deal" or a "moderate amount," up from 32 percent in a June 2002 CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll. http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/09/11/911.poll/index.html

They are waking up but it is too late to stop what he has set in motion in the middle east and around the world.

9/11 was Bush's pearl harbor. Problem is, Bush is no FDR and has squirreled away any sympathy the world had for us.
Now let me say something I have repeated many times over the years. In after sight you may agree, let me know!
As you may remember, Bush was looking for something to happen that would put the country and the world behind what he already had plans to do. 9/11 gave him that something.
He had plans right from the beginning to establish a new societal, middle east, and world order. That is why it was important to him to whip up a media and public fury which of course, he has done.

Troubling to me is the future of my 4 sons. 2 of which are in this fight. One is EOD on his way to Afghanistan to be followed by a tour in Iraq.
Who knows what Iraq and Afghanistan will be like in a year or two? Plus I will guarantee you Bush will find an excuse to attack Iran so he can further his plans for the middle east and the world.

Ahmadinejad and Bush at General Assembly meeting, Chavez will have his ringside seat but?

U.N. officials say "they expect" Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to travel to New York City to attend the 2006 General Assembly.
Ahmadinejad's In Your Face!
Ahmadinejad will be at the U.N. at the same time key members of the security council will gather to decide what type of sanctions to impose on the Iranian regime for its refusal to suspend its "enrichment" of nuclear fuel.
He wants his confrontation with Bush, what will happen?
Iran's U.N. mission in New York City had no comment on the expected presidential visit, however late Wednesday evening, the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) confirmed that Ahmadinejad told his cabinet in Tehran that he intended to visit New York City and speak at the United Nations. In addition to the Iranian president, the U.N. also confirms that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, another Bush antagonist, also plans to visit the Big Apple at the same time.

President Bush is expected to address the U.N. General Assembly on the same day as Ahmadinejad, September 19. Bush will address the U.N. at 11:30 a.m., the Iranian takes to the same podium at 7 p.m.

Iran's president proposed yesterday that he and President Bush should hold a public debate, and suggested that the U.N. General Assembly later this month would be the perfect place.

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad first proposed last month that he and Bush should debate, and the White House had dismissed the idea, saying it was a "diversion" from the concerns the international community has about Iran's nuclear program.

In a speech to a religious conference, Ahmadinejad said the U.N. would allow Americans and people around the world to watch and listen to such a debate without censorship, according to his official web site.

In his latest overture, Ahmadinejad said Bush would be able to bring advisers to the debate.

We are ready to discuss the ways of managing the world for achieving justice, peace, friendship and removing violations and threats," he said in the speech, according to the web site. to say that the period of bullying has expired, but false advocators of democracy avoided it because of their arrogance and lack of logic," I really think this is a great idea and the perfect opportunity for someone to make a fool of themselves, we'll have to wait and see what transpires.
http://www.libertypost.org/...
Wow, to be there! I can see Bush hemming and hawing now! Remember this?

The hypocrisy of the Bush administration is evident amongst other places in its relations with North Korea. While the United States is busy developing a new generation of nukes, the Bush White House has tried desperately to politically isolate North Korea because of its nuclear weapons program.
Apparently though, Israel, India and Pakistan are permitted to possess nuclear weapons because they are allies of the United States, or so goes Bush administration logic.
The hypocrisy of the Bush administration is clearly evident in its targeting of alleged rogue states--Venezuela, Syria, Iran and North Korea--while supporting non-democratic and repressive regimes in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan, among others. The Bush administration's militaristic rhetoric and actions have not only resulted in increasing numbers of people around the globe viewing U.S. foreign policy as a significant destabilizing factor in international relations, it has also made clear exactly who is the world's principal warmonger. http://www.colombiajournal.org/....

Chavez pledged solidarity with Syria in its struggle against Israel and the United States and predicted the demise of U.S. "imperialism."
Chavez, a harsh critic of U.S. foreign policy, also said he would seek a front-row seat if President George W. Bush accepted an invitation from Iran's Ahmadinejad to a televised debate, adding he would be cheering on the Iranian president.
Chavez's popularity shot up across the Arab world after he ordered Venezuela's envoy to Israel home earlier this month to protest Israel's military offensive against Hizbollah guerrillas in Lebanon. Many civilians died in the fighting. Chavez said: "I wish I could be sitting at the front row and watch Ahmadinejad deal Bush a knock-out blow."
http://www.washingtonpost.com/....

I really am looking forward to finding out what is said and how Bush gets out of this. Chavez it looks like, will have his ring side seat to see Bush embarrass himself. This could be interesting! I can't say I blame him or anyone else for their anti American feelings. I hate to say it but our own President appears to be the purveyor of much of the worlds danger and unrest.
This is his idea of a new world order? He will destroy the world to achieve it, what does that tell you?
Chavez, Bush, Ahmadinejad, in the same venue, this could be interesting! *How much more can the world take from Bush before....?http://www.dailykos.com/...

The media sees the truth! It's their duty to tell the Truth? Uncover the Dictator for what he is?

We did a diary 7 months ago titled Speaking the truth will forever be Known as Bush bashing! http://www.dailykos.com/... If we want to take back and save our America it is time for the media, the Government, and the military, to Bush Bash and make sure they are heard and make the difference.
We know Bush is lying and why. The media like CNN know the truth, it is time to speak it regardless of being labeled as unpatriotic or counter to America's interest's. It is unpatriotic and counter to our America if we do not speak the truth and make sure it is heard and acted on.
Why do we continue to be powerless to make the truth be told, heard, and acted on? are we? Because talking amongst ourselves does not translate to action in most cases. Is it just that we do not yet have the where with all? Please make some suggestions!

We see it, we talk about it, but seem powerless to do anything about it so we must suffer through the nightmare Bush is creating! For the good of the country our hierarchy must start telling the truth regardless of repercussions. We are ready for it, we need it, it is your duty! The media, Government, and military authorities, must make themselves' heard and make a difference, uncovering, laying out, beating down the obvious lying before it is too late! Look at these night and day comparisons and they are simply dismissed and accepted!
CNN's Nic Robertson:For the past five years I've criss-crossed the Middle East. There are common threads. The common people are mostly warm and welcoming. But there is a sea change under way. The looks I get from those who don't know me are far less happy than they used to be. Wherever I go, faces are souring.

That's how it was when I got off the plane here. I know the Pakistanis. I know how warm and friendly they are. A few months ago I brought my wife and daughters here for a wedding. It was a wonderful experience they'll never forget. But the fact is, people just aren't as happy to see Westerners as they used to be. We come with baggage.

Ask anyone why and they'll tell you, "your government. "Mr. Bush is against Muslims." Why else, their argument goes, would your soldiers kill Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan?

I heard the same thing in London this summer and last. "We are angry," hard-line Islamists told me. These young men see themselves as Muslim first, British second. They listen to al Qaeda's messages, watch tapes of Osama bin Laden and cheer at the 9/11 attack. Their views are some of the most radical I've come across since I used to meet with the Taliban. It's clear that bin Laden still has relevance.`

Ask in Pakistan, the last country he was believed to be headed toward, why he hasn't been caught and you'll get a conspiracy theory. The hard-liners believe no one will help because Pakistanis don't trust America and dislike its war on terror. Musharraf's critics say he is a hard-liner whose policies have empowered the country's influential religious parties. His opponents say he strikes a fine balance, telling the religious leaders they need him to keep America at bay while telling the Americans they need him to keep the religious leaders at bay.

Little in the hunt for al Qaeda or bin Laden is done, they say, without massive pressure from the United States. I have to say it will now get a lot worse since Musharraf has guaranteed Al Qaeda thus Bin Laden and the rest a safe haven.

Any way over the past five years the cumulative effect here to fore is that only a handful of al Qaeda figures, most notably Khalid Sheik Mohammad, the reported coordinator of the 9/11 attacks, has been picked up. Significantly, most have been picked up in Pakistan's teeming cities. Not hiding in caves as we are told. Again I say, it will now get worse. Where's the outrage?

Nic Robertson: I've been discovering a far more worrying trend than Pakistan simply harboring former al Qaeda leaders. It is becoming a principal al Qaeda hub of operation. People across the Middle East -- from moderates to radicals to plain ill-informed -- tell me the real reason America is not getting what it wants is that the United States has mishandled its war on terror to the point that it's backfired. I have to agree!

The conclusion here is the threat of terror attacks is as great, if not greater, than it ever was.

The media knows the truth! Why then do they not report the truth? Aren't they morally bound to tell the truth? They are appeasing Bush at the expense of America and the world, why? They are knowingly letting Bush continue to lie as he has from the beginning in an effort to prosecute his new middle east and world order. Listen to Bush's lies!

Bush reminded Americans that the United States is a nation at war on the same day his administration proclaimed significant progress in the war on terror but said the enemy has adjusted to U.S. defenses and that "America is safer but we are not yet safe."
http://www.heraldnewsdaily.com/...
Depends on what your goal is!
Afghanistan also had record opium yields. Production increased 49 percent from the year before. The estimated 6,100 tons even broke the world record of 1999, when 5,764 tons of opium were produced globally. The insurgency derives a significant amount of revenue from drugs.
http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/...

More than 600 suspected Taliban fighters have been killed over the past month, the bloodiest period in southern Afghanistan since their regime was overthrown five years ago, US officials said yesterday. Again I say Bush guaranteed the loss of Afghanistan by diverting our efforts to Iraq. Now it will all get worse before it is lost.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/...
An Iraqi militant group led by al Qaeda hailed on Tuesday as "heroic" a gunman's attack on a group of tourists in Amman , Jordan which killed a British man and wounded 6 other people. Praise God for endowing this nation with men who reject injustice and humiliation. http://today.reuters.co.uk/....
This is progress? This is being safer?
Bush has to ignore the reality of what is happening in Iraq so he can stay there and prosecute his plan for middle east and new world order. Iraq is in civil war, middle east quick to follow!
I was looking for proof of past conversations regarding what is happening today for someone who had questions as to what to do.
There were so many I couldn't believe it. I think you will find this very interesting.Bush's unintelligent redesign, the 10 point plan for new middle east order. Total Middle East Breakdown, and it is well under way. http://www.dailykos.com/...

I just wish people would remember what he has said in the past about wanting new middle east and world order. 9/11 gave him the excuse to do it. You have to think that is why he ignored warnings leading up to 9/11 and why he refuses to pull out of lost Iraq. He has to stay there to follow through with his new middle east and world order. This will be long and it will be terrible. I have a son going to Afghanistan shortly followed with a stint in Iraq as EOD. Another son called me this morning saying his flight will be deployed to the middle east next year. You have to wonder, when will they be going to Iran and what's next, if they live that long.
I wrote this 3 years ago but I think you will agree how obvious it is getting. People use to think I was crazy thinking a US President would purposely destroy things. I wonder what they would say now?
