Seven die as police, rebels clash in south Russia 
`
The Superpower's newsstories help readers acquire
a taste for
`
THE ABSURD.
`
Really?
`
Try this!
`
"Chechen rebels have fought a decade-long war for
independence from Moscow.
`
"Russian forces have contained that rebellion but are
now fighting an insurgency that has spread to other
parts of the poor and mainly Muslim North Caucasus
region."

The Manhole Story
`
`
Monday, May 29, 2006
Associated Press [1]
Canadian Diplomat Found Dead in Italy
`
"The body of a man found in a manhole with a knife
in his abdomen has been identified as that of a
Canadian diplomat missing since March...."
`
The diplomat, based in Vienna, was found in Naples.
`
`
The book *The Strategy Of Subversion* makes the
point that "Beneath the surface of events" substan-
tial changes can occur --"with little objective news
leaking to the world at large."
`
Paul Blackstock, the author, continues:
`
"The same is true of covert operations in general:
`
a foreign minister or a nationalist leader is murdered,
`
a militay attache 'falls off' a train [or might be found
in a manhole],
`
a 'border incident' makes headlines.
`
Such events are frequently only isolated, accidentally
exposed incidents in the larger pattern of
`
SILENT, CLANDESTINE WARFARE
`
which goes on restlessly and unceasingly beneath
the surface." [2]
`
`
You've heard about the "push for the arrest and ex-
tradition of 22 purported CIA agents who have been
accused by an Italian prosecutor of kidnapping an
Egyptian cleric from Milan as a suspected terrorist"
[3] and you're aware of Maher Arar, the Canadian
citizen who, returning to Canada from a vacation in
Tunisia, was detained in New York by The Superpow-
er and deported to Syria where he was tortured [4].
`
Perhaps the Canadian diplomat, exasperated by
Canadian kow-towing to The Superpower, had docu-
ments to show the Italian prosecutor: but fell victim
to the
`
SILENT, CLANDESTINE WARFARE
`
which goes on restlessly and unceasingly beneath
the surface.

David Kelly Is Not Dead

David Kelly Is Not Dead
`
`
David who?
`
Friday May 19, 2006
BBC [1]
MP investigates Dr Kelly's death
`
"An investigation into 'unanswered questions' about
the death of weapons scientist Dr David Kelly has
been launched by...[Member of Parliament Norman
Baker]."
`
"Dr Kelly was found dead after being named as the
possible source of a BBC story on the government's
Iraq dossier."
`
Goverment's Iraq dossier?
`
Blair's WMD Lie Machine dossier.
`
Since Blair is The Superpower's *poodle,* you might
as well say
`
Bu$h's WMD Lie Machine dossier.
`
"An inquest into Dr Kelly's death was opened and
adjourned in July 2003.
`
"The task of investigating the 'circumstances sur-
rounding the death' of Dr Kelly was then handed [by
Blair] to Lord Hutton, who, following a two month in-
quiry, concluded the scientist had taken his own life."
`
But "unanswered questions" remain.
`
BBC sums it up:
`
"[MP NORMAN] BAKER'S QUESTIONS 
`
"Why would Dr Kelly want to commit suicide? 
`
"Why did he choose an unusual method? 
`
"Why was the police hunt for him launched before he
had disappeared?"
`
`
Which brings us to my Friday July 25, 2003 essay [2]:
`
{start}
`
The [UK] Guardian on Tuesday July 22d published
the text of a statement issued by Lord Number 10,
who was appointed by Number 10 to investigate
the death of David Kelly, the scientist who bravely
exposed the lies of Number 10.
`
Lord Number 10 declares:
`
"I make it clear that it will be for me to decide as I
think right...the matters which will be the subject of
my investigation."
`
The main matters NOT to be investigated:
`
KELLY-KILLER BLAIR
`
and The Poodle's handler [Bu$h].
`
`
Number 10?  It's in the back alley named Downing
Street.

Visible Invisibility

POLITICAL ESSAY
Visible Invisibility
`
`
The Superpower rashly exposed its evil nature in
Afghanistan and Iraq and it now needs to hide its
deeds.
`
So...
`
You may have noted lately a rash of newsstories
about invisibility.
`
Here's the latest such newsstory.
`
Sunday May 28, 2006
The [UK] Sunday Times [1]
It’s magic: science gets closer to creating the Invis-
ible Man
`
A "professor of theoretical physics" "whose work
was partly sponsored by the Pentagon" claims to
to "have delivered a blueprint for a new type of
cloaking device" which "could be used on fixed mili-
tary installations" (unwittingly making spy satellites
obsolescent).
`
`
Here's excerpts from John Ambler's book *The
French Army in Politics 1945-1962,* which looks
into the background causes of the French war of
terror in Algeria [2]:
`
"Cast in a perpetual shock-troop role, paratroop
officers and men came to symbolize the continuing
battle for the defense of French Algeria."
`
Likewise:
`
"For the Algerian rebels and their sympathizers,
and for liberals in France who opposed the war,
the *paras,* the 'victors of Algiers,' were equally
symbolic of French Algeria.
`
"In June, 1957, in the midst of the battle of Algiers,
an elementary school teacher in the Casbah of
Algiers asked his Moslem pupils to write an essay
on the subject, 'What would you do if you were
invisible?'
`
"Almost all of the responses from his eleven- to
thirteen-year-old charges mentioned vengeance
on the *paras*:
`
"'If I were invisible I would kill the soldiers and the
paratroopers....  I would kill the *paras* who tor-
ture men....  I would kill all of Massu's Paras.' --
`
"'I would kill all the *paras* because they are doing
evil....' --
`
"'I would attack Massu's *paras,* those *misera-
bles,* those thieves, those imbeciles, those idiots,
those cretins.  Down with Massu's *paras.*' --
`
"'If I were invisible, the first job I would do would
be to go seek revenge on the *paras* who caused
so much misery to my brothers.  I would take a 
rope and I would strangle the last of the *paras*
who patrol in the tunnel of our neighborhood and
I would take his weapons, then I would run after
the other *paras* and kill them....'"
`
`
The Superpower's crimes cannot be hidden.
`
They are INDELIBLE STAINS.

Dangerous Dogfaces

General to Marines: kill only when justified 
`
Reuters quotes a Marine Corps statement:
`
"To most Marines, the most difficult part of courage
is not...raw physical courage....
`
"It is rather the moral courage to do the right thing
in the face of danger or pressure from other Mar-
ines."
`
That's a confession that most Marines lack courage
to do the right thing.
`
Why  is that so?
`
They've been "justified" by The Lie Machine to in-
vade and occupy one country after another.
`
They've been "justified" by The Lie Machine to kill
ten, a hundred --no, thousands-- of "enemies."
`
Nothing new there.
`
So why did the Commandant fly off to Iraq?
`
Reuters reports the trip "showed his personal con-
cern over recent allegations about the actions of
Marines in combat...."
`
The Superpower's real concern is the breakdown
in discipline.
`
The orders of officers are not being followed.
`
If discipline cannot be restored, the offing of offi-
cers may follow.
`
Talk of "civil war" in Iraq may take an unexpected
turn.

300 Displaced Aborigines May Have to Move
`
"Up to 300 Aborigines living as refugees just outside
their own town after fleeing clashes by rival gangs
may have to move elsewhere...."
`
"Many of Australia's 400,000 Aborigines live in con-
ditions of poverty commonly found in Third World
countries."
`
"On average, they die more than 20 years younger
than other Australians."

Central Americans Seek Refuge From Gangs
`
The big picture:
`
"Street gangs have an estimated 70,000 to 100,000
members across Central America...."
`
Part of that picture:
`
In one Honduran town, gang A ruled one side of the
town; gang B the other side.
`
One lad refused to join either gang.
`
"Rivera soon went to live with his mother in Miami,
joining a steady stream of young people from Cen-
tral America who apply for asylum in the United
States to escape street gangs."
`
But judges in The Superpower know the score.
`
"Rivera, like most other illegal immigrants in his
situation, lost his case and is set for deportation."

Doublespeak undermines war on terrorism: Amnesty 
`
Reuters quotes Amnesty International's secretary
general :
`
"Duplicity and doublespeak have become the hallmark
of the war on terror."
`
Plainly put:
`
Duplicity and doublespeak are The Superpower's hall-
mark.  It's been that way since August 6, 1945.
`
Reuters quotes AI's secretary general:
`
"There is no doubt the war on terror has given a new
lease of life to old-fashioned repression."
`
Plainly put:
`
The Superpower renamed its same ol' same ol' global
repression.  Thereby its puppets got more lash-room.
`
Unfortunately, decades-old D&D has messed with the
brains of those who claim to oppose it; and they are
reduced to phrases such as "powerful governments"
and "powerful forces."
`
There should be NO amnesty for The Superpower's 
decades-old duplicity and double-speak.
`
Why not?
`
Because it undermines the world's REAL resistance
to terrorism.
