All Kinds Of Russians In Iraq
`
`
www.kremlin.ru reported Wednesday June 28, 2006:
`
"...Putin has instructed the Russian special services to
take all measures to find and eliminate the murderers
of the Russian diplomats in Iraq."
`
Putin's (a) grandstanding for the racists in Russia and
(b) sucking up to Bu$h, with whom he has a working
meeting the day before the G-8 summit July 15th to
17th in St Petersburg.
`
But if these measures are actually taken, then *for all
practical purposes* Russia will be making war on the
Iraqi Resistance.
`
That in turn will mark any Russians --how about any
CIS subjects? --in Iraq as possible --how about likely?
-- members of Putin's special services.
`
Preventive measures will be taken as surely as night
follows day.
`
WELCOME TO WEST ASIA,
`
Vladimir Vladimirovich.

NY Times Magazine [1]
An Anti-Addiction Pill?
`
Well, and what is addiction?
`
"...addiction...appears to be a complicated disorder
affecting brain processes responsible for motivation, 
decision making, pleasure seeking, inhibitory control
and the way we learn and consolidate information
and experiences."
`
Under the label "disorder," The Superpower's "small,
invitation-only crowd of neuroscientists, clinicians and
public policy makers" are studying how humans exist.
`
How humans exist?
`
HOW THEY ASSERT THEIR INDEPENDENCE!
`
`
From my second essay  on "Rumsfeld's Europe" [2]:
`
"...BBC quotes The Superpower's Treasury Secre-
tary.
`
"He blurts out that money tracking's an 'effective
weapon in the larger [!] war on terror.'
`
"The larger war = the one on the world's peoples.
`
"Just by existing, they are a 'terror' to those who
aim at world supremacy."
`
`
Returning to the magazine:
`
"'In 5 or 10 years, we will be treating addiction very
differently,' predicts...the director of the [national]
institute on drug abuse, who attended the M.I.T.
conference and presented a lecture, 'Addiction: The
Neurobiology of Free Will Gone Awry'...."
`
Neurobiology?  For instance:
`
There's a brain chemical that "travels to the parts of
the brain responsible for solidifying memory...."
`
One of those parts "learns and stores emotional mem-
ories...."
`
Emotional memories?
`
Pilots shooting rockets into homes in Iraq.  Troops
shutting off all utilities in surrounded towns in Iraq.
Psywar units organizing and financing death squads
in Iraq.  Things like that.
`
"Some researchers hypothesize that through a com-
bination of medicine and behavioral therapy, addicts
could 'unlearn' these powerful memories..., making
them less likely to relapse when they see a cue."
`
Medicine in Iraq?  Alcohol.  Behavioral therapy in Iraq? 
Torture.  A cue in Iraq?  The Superpower's troops.
`
Relapse in Iraq?
`
UNLIMITED RESISTANCE.
`
For Bu$h, that's Free Will Gone Awry.
`
`
From Lewis Pyenson's book *Civilizing Mission* [3]:
`
"Warriors have figured prominently in American
science since the middle of the nineteenth century,
when military operations absorbed around one-
quarter of all federal funds allocated to scientific
endeavors.
`
"Viewed in this light, military penetration into re-
search universities during the middle of the twentieth
century reflects the desire of generals and admirals
to reassert their authority as custodians of nature
and interpreters of natural law.
`
"The dominion of research universities over science
is indeed a short-term historical phenomenon, ex-
isting in Germany for about a hundred years and in
the United States for half that span;
`
"by the second third of the twentieth century major
research installations had quit the groves of academ-
ia for the *campus martius* [the camp of war].
`
"To identify this commerce between learned pro-
fessors and professional killers is NOT to assert
that scientific *discourse* --what appeared in re-
search publications-- derived from military needs.
`
"It is to indicate the natural advantages of the mili-
tary mind in carrying out many kinds of research
project.
`
"The battlefield is an infernal laboratory:
`
"Athena is both goddess of war and avatar of wis-
dom."

In line with that, BBC quotes The Superpower's

Rumsfeld's Europe
`
`
On Monday June 19, 2006 "Putin had a meeting with
cabinet members" in The Kremlin. [1]
`
"...Defense Minister...Ivanov reported on preparation
for the military training exercises that will be carried
out within the Collective Security Treaty Organisation
(CSTO)."
`
Among these exercises:
`
"On 24 June 2006 in Belarus a CSTO regional group
will complete a number of military training exercises
in the direction of Eastern Europe."
`
`
On Saturday June 24, 2006 AP reported "Military ex-
ercises between Russian and Belarusian forces _ the
largest ever for the two former Soviet republics _ are
not directed toward any nation, alliance or enemy in
particular, Russia's defense minister said...." [2]
`
`
Of course Eastern Europe in general is Rumsfeld's
New Europe.
`
How did it get that way?

Bank Data Is Sifted by U.S. in Secret to Block Terror
`
After The Superpower suffered one of the greatest
military defeats in history, its Black House cowards
dared not tell its Evil People which country had organ-
ized and financed that defeat --for that country has
enough nukes to blow up the world.
`
So they mounted their Al Qaeda Horse and promptly
rode off in all directions at once!
`
"Within weeks of 9/11" The Superpower demanded
and got access to ALL "financial records from a
vast international database" located in Belgium and
"led by a Brooklyn native...."
`
The Times quotes a person close to "the operation":
`
"At first, they got everything — the entire Swift data-
base."
`
The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Tele-
communication (Swift) "routes about $6 trillion daily
between banks, brokerages, stock exchanges," etc.
`
Bankers got caught up in the Qaeda Craze.  After a
while, though, they regained some banker's probity;
and perceived some of the tricks The Superpower
was up to.
`
Supposedly, it was gathering information about ter-
rorists.  But that operation was only a cover for the
real deal: gathering information to blackmail politi-
cans, especially East European politicians.
`
`
This latest revelation may the one that triggers the
dissolution of the international banking "system,"
now at the mercy of The Superpower's loose can-
nons.

Frist: Surrender in Iraq 'Not a Solution' 
`
At last The Coward Congress is facing the prospect
of complete defeat in West Asia.
`
Its response?
`
AP quotes a Coward Congress leader:
`
"We cannot retreat.  We cannot surrender.  We can-
not go wobbly."
`
Between defecating and going blind, there's denial!
`
`
Several times the Iraqi Resistance offered terms to
The Superpower.
`
Each time, The Superpower refused.  After each re-
fusal it committed bigger and better crimes.
`
The failures of The Superpower's bigger and better
crimes have now given rise to its One Big Crime: its
attempt to exterminate the Iraqi people.
`
Now there are no terms,
`
ONLY UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER.
`
It will be enforced without any intervention by The
Coward Congress.

AP: U.S. Military Bringing Equipment Home 
`
"In the last four months, the Army has tagged 7,000
Humvees and 17,000 other pieces of equipment to
be shipped to the United States to be rebuilt."
`
"Most of what's being returned to the United States
are vehicles and aircraft that need total rebuilds...."
`
"And the cost of repairing the equipment once it's
back is huge.  The backlog already is measured in
years and some analysts say the price tag could ex-
ceed $50 billion."
`
This is maybe good news?
`
"...analysts say that removing so much equipment...
suggests commanders are laying the groundwork for
an extensive [troop] reduction."
`
There is no good news from The Superpower.
`
"...the equipment will enter a multi-billion-dollar re-
pair program - known as reset - that rebuilds equip-
ment for future wars."
`
Now you know the full meaning of the words:

POLITICAL ESSAYS
King Moses II
`
`
Jane Jacob's book *The Death and Life of Great
American Cities* was first published in 1961.  It's
still in print.
`
She wrote:
`
"...there is a quality even meaner than outright ugli-
ness or disorder, and this meaner quality is
`
THE DISHONEST MASK OF PRETENDED ORDER,
`
achieved by ignoring or suppressing the real order
that is striving to exist...."
`
Jacobs dealt with the pretended order and the real
order at the city level.
`
Now the pretended order and the real order have
reached the world level.
`
In Iraq, for instance, there's
`
THE DISHONEST MASK OF PRETENDED ORDER
`
while The Superpower actually wages its war of
extermination against the Iraqi people.
`
`
In 1961, Jacobs resisted the expressway world of
Robert Moses, whose maxim was:
`
"When you operate in an overbuilt metroplis [New
York], you have to hack your way with a meat ax."
`
You could say that Robert Moses anticipated 9/11.
He was hell bent on hacking yet another express-
way through New York City: this one through lower
Manhattan.
`
And now?
`
The worldwide Real Order resists the war world of
King Moses II, whose maxim amounts to this--
`
When you operate in an overpopulated world, you
have to hack your way with self-cleaning axes that
leave no fingerprints.
`
That's what pretended order is all about.
`
`
And Real World Order, what is it striving for?
`
TO BE FREE
`
free of The Superpower's PRYING NOSE
`
free of The Superpower's WANDERING EYE
`
free of The Superpower's LYING MOUTH
`
free of The Superpower's KILLER-ROBOTS!

Washington Post
Government Increasingly Turning to Data Mining 
`
"Recent reports about the National Security Agency's
effort to acquire phone call records highlights the
government's growing interest in the [data mining]
technique."
`
With reference to "the government's interest in buy-
ing commercial data and related software," the Post
quotes "a financial analyst," who exclaims:
`
"The only question we would have is at what rate
would the demand be increasing."
`
Which boils down to: Whoopee, there's money to be
made!
`
And what is this data mining?
`
Off to Utah we go for an answer.
`
"Cogito Inc. sells software to the National Security
Agency that the company says can find patterns in
massive amounts of data, such as lists of telephone
calling records."
`
Patterns: What kind of patterns?
`
"[A Cogito vp] said he believed the NSA could use the
software to reveal patterns about how people deal
with one another just from their calling records.
`
Ah, how do people deal with one another?
`
The Post quotes the vp's explanation:
`
"There are gatekeepers and bridges and collabora-
tors and leaders that could be identified just by the
nature of the communications among the groups."
`
"You do not have to know the content of the conver-
sation to identify this."
`
`
The IRS is a leader which we follow without question.
`
Its collaborators are police, courts, prisons.
`
The gatekeepers are lawyers of all kinds.
`
The bridges are forms to be filled out.
`
You do not have to think about the content of *this*
conversation --in fact it's better that you don't!
`
But if you insist: there's taxpayers to be scalped and
money to be made.
`
But data mining will
`
NEVER
`
reveal this persistent pattern of terrorism; but only
the mass resistance to it (when finally it arises).
`
By then, however,  it will be too late: for mass resis-
tance freely announces itself to all.

[AP headline:] Sneaky Presidential Trips Have Prece-
dent
`
Associated Press has its own way of letting the cat
out of the bag.
`
AP November 30th [2003] reports:
`
"President Franklin D. Roosevelt used a body double
to sneak away for a meeting with his British counter-
part during World War II.
`
"...he had an impostor wave to crowds from the pres-
idential yacht Potomac while FDR really was meeting
Churchill off the coast of Newfoundland in August
1941."
`
That's one way, but not the only way, an imposter
can be used.
`
Indeed, AP declares:
`
"Not so often has the White House openly deceived
Americans as it did in saying Bush was in one place
when he was someplace else."
`
That introduces another what if.
`
Over the Atlantic on the way back from The Super-
power's airport at Baghdad, was the impostor

Washington Post Foreign Service
Smoke of Iraq War 'Drifting Over Lebanon' 
`
This is a front page newsstory by the Post's foreign
legion.
`
Iraq War?  The Superpower's continuing war of ex-
termination against the Iraqi people *and* the Iraqi
people's continuing war of extermination against the
troops of The Superpower and its puppets.
`
"...the war is building a profound legacy across the
Arab world:...a subterranean reserve of men who...
declare that the fight against the United States in
Iraq is a model for the future."
`
Across the Arab world, yes;  but not restricted to the
Arab world!
`
"...Tripoli [in northern Lebanon]...is one of the most
visible manifestations of the war, a...city being trans-
formed by growing radicalism and religious fervor
that may long outlast...the U.S. presence in Iraq [=
its continuing war against the Iraqi people].... 
`
"Here, and elsewhere, that militancy may prove to
be the inheritance of both the war and the Bush ad-
ministration's professed aim of bringing democratic
reform to the region."
`
Professed?  Another of The Liar's cover stories.
`
A city being transformed?
`
"Grievances against the United States are nothing
new in a city like Tripoli.
`
"For a generation, activists across the spectrum
have bitterly criticized U.S. policy.
`
"What has shifted in the aftermath of...the U.S. in-
vasion of Iraq is the perception of that policy.
`
"The critique is no longer about perceived double
standards -- of excessive support for Israel, of
backing Arab dictatorships.
`
"Today, it is more generalized, universal and uncom-
promising.
`
"Popular sentiment here and elsewhere holds that
U.S. policy amounts to a war on Islam, and...the con-
flict is framed as one between the faithful and infi-
dels, justice and injustice."
`
`
The next step in the transformation is to drop chit-
chat about "policy"; and to correctly perceive the
`
INHERENT NATURE OF THE SUPERPOWER
`
summed up in its Declaration of World $lavery, a
declaration written in blood.
`
A principal clause of that declaration is
`
THERE SHALL BE NO JUSTICE EVER AGAIN
`
ANYWHERE!
`
--thus not in "the Arab world" alone, though for now
West Asia *is* the main target of The Superpower's
racism.
