Are The Tools Of Tyranny!
IS BUSH TRYING TO WAG THE DOG WITH A WAR?
ZACARIAS MOUSSAOUI, now on
trial in Virginia as the so-called "20th hijacker," says the U.
S. knew the World Trade Center was about to be attacked but chose not to do
anything about stopping the attack.
Is that why all the
warnings from the FBI agents in the field were ignored? Did the CIA and the FBI
sit on their hands because the powers that be wanted the attack to
happen? The powers that be, of course, are the interests of Big Oil, represented by a president
and a vice president, who, after gaining control of America by election
thievery, needed a provocation to make Afghanistan safe for a Big Oil pipeline
to run through it.
According to an email from Peter Coyote, the following facts
were gleaned from an article
contributed to Media Monitors Network (MMN) by Joseph Clifford and from testimony
before Congress by the president of UNOCAL, proposed builder of the pipeline:
U.S. supported Bin Laden and the Taliban for years, and viewed them as freedom
fighters against the Russians.

from the Caspian Sea through Afghanistan to the Arabian Sea.

nicely courted the Taliban for their support in allowing the construction to

1998-1999 the Taliban changed its mind, threw UNOCAL out of the country and
awarded the pipeline project to a company from Argentina.

The special envoy is the former "chief consultant to UNOCAL".
like his father, acquired his wealth through oil. But the son, like his vice
president, also collected big through a little insider trading.
only was Bush's Secretary of Interior the President of an oil company before
going to Washington, but Bush's father, the ex-president, is now part of the
"Carlyle Group," specializing in huge oil investments around the
Bush's National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice, also worked for an oil
company, Chevron, before going to Washington. Chevron even named one of its
newest "supertankers" after her.
for Bush's vp, Dick Cheney, he, too, worked for an oil company. He was CEO of
the giant oil conglomerate Haliburton, which is in the pipeline construction

to run for vp.
about $6 Trillion dollars worth of oil in the Caspian Sea area, the US
government quietly announces Jan 31, 2002 that we will support the construction
of the Trans-Afghanistan pipeline.
Presidents Pervez Musharef
of Pakistan and Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan (the former Unocal employee) announce
agreement to build the proposed gas pipeline from Central Asia to Pakistan via
So why should
we disbelieve Zacarias Moussaoui? Should we put our faith in a vice president
who, as CEO of Haliburton, sold crucial equipment to Saddam Hussein and then
lied about it to the Senate? Should we believe a couple of corporate crooks? Or
are they worse than corporate crooks? They're certainly acting like a bunch of
Hitlers who think they can take over the world.
They want to
launch a war of aggression against Iraq because they say Iraq poses a nuclear
threat. Their proof? They can't show us their proof. Like everything else
about their administration, they say it's a secret. Look back in your lifetime
at all the secrets that were kept from you. If any of those secrets were later
revealed to you, then you learned the only reason those secrets were kept from
you was to control your behavior, right? Secrets are the tools of tyranny. Never
before in American history has a presidential administration cloaked itself in
so much secrecy.
more obvious is that George W. Bush wants the attack on Iraq to be his
"October Surprise." He wants the Republicans to win the mid-term elections.
As for the 2004 presidential election, he wants to be the tail that wags the
dog. Like the movie about a president who
starts a war just to get re-elected. Except George W. Bush wasn't elected in
the first place. Our yellow-bellied media refuses to reveal the true results of
the Florida recount that had been so publicly commissioned. Didn't the Wicked
Witch of Bernardsville suggest the results be kept secret for 25 years?
But the truth will out! History will prove that Al Gore actually won
Florida's electoral votes.
It was the arrogance of
someone I can only describe as a holier-than-thou rectal figurative who, because
he was so angered over the Democrats not being as leftist as he was, succeeded
in robbing the Democratic nominee of some 70,000 Florida ballots. That made the
Florida vote close enough for Governor Jeb Bush and his secretary of state girl
friend to manipulate the results and steal the election for Jeb Bush's big
The rest of the world keeps
saying it wants no part of a war against Iraq. But our Hitler wants us to go it
alone. He and his band of chicken hawks, not one of whom has ever experienced
mortal combat, want to conquer Iraq over the dead bodies of our young men and
Never before has this
country ever attacked another country in such a so-called "pre-emptive
strike." Do we want to set an example for the rest of the globe? Go ahead,
nuclear-armed India! Launch a pre-emptive strike on Pakistan. Go ahead, China!
Launch a pre-emptive strike on Taiwan
So here we have the John
Wayne of world history not only about to throw egg in his father's face for
not getting the job done in the first place, but he's also about to
accommodate Osama bin Laden with exactly what Osama and his maniacal following
want. A jihad! A war between Islam and the West. Didn't the Arab states
already give Bush a strong enough warning to stay out of Iraq? But John Wayne is
the big bully in this schoolyard! He's the guy running this
ranch. He don't need to heed warnings. He don't need to heed
nothin?! Go ahead,
Muslim world! Make his day! And would America's Muslims be forced to choose
whether they're more Moslem or more American?
A war between Islam and the West? Our Hitler wants us to risk a thermonuclear holocaust. ##
