Secrets 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:

●The U.S. supported Bin Laden and the Taliban for years, and viewed them as freedom fighters against the Russians.

●As late as 1998, the US was paying the salary of every single Taliban official in Afghanistan.

●There is more oil and gas in the Caspian Sea area than in Saudi Arabia, but you need a pipeline through Afghanistan to get the oil out.

●UNOCAL, a giant American Oil conglomerate, wanted to build a 1000-mile-long pipeline from the Caspian Sea through Afghanistan to the Arabian Sea.

●UNOCAL spent $10 million on geological surveys for pipeline construction, and very nicely courted the Taliban for their support in allowing the construction to begin.

●All of the leading Taliban officials were in Texas negotiating with UNOCAL in 1998.

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

●John Maresca, VP of UNOCAL, testified before Congress and said there will be no pipeline until the Taliban is gone and a more friendly government is established.

●In 1999-2000, America began portraying The Taliban as the most evil people in the world.

●Senior American officials in mid-July of 20001 told Niaz Naik, a former Pakistani Foreign Secretary, that military action against Afghanistan would go ahead by the middle of October. Then came the attack on the World Trade Center.

●Bush ordered an invasion of Afghanistan even though none of the 9/11 hijackers came from Afghanistan.

●Bush blamed Bin Laden but has never offered any proof, saying it's a "secret".

●Taliban offered to negotiate to turn over Bin Laden if we showed them some proof. We refused; we bombed.

●Bush said: "This is not about nation building. It's about getting the terrorists."

●We have a new government in Afghanistan and the leader of that government formerly worked for UNOCAL.

●Bush appoints a special envoy to represent the US to deal with that new government. The special envoy is the former "chief consultant to UNOCAL".

●Bush, like his father, acquired his wealth through oil. But the son, like his vice president, also collected big through a little insider trading.

●Not 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 world.

●And 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.

●As 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 business.

●Haliburton, by the way, gave Cheney $34 million as a farewell gift when he left the company to run for vp.

●With 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.

●And 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 Afghanistan.

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.

What's 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 brother.

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 women warriors.

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.  ##
