BlueScope Steel Ltd is Australia's top steelmaker.
`
AFP quotes its chief executive:
`
"Adams said [BlueScope] did not expect its second-
half financial result to be as strong as the first-half
due in part to moderately lower [steel] prices global-
ly as well as market uncertainty in Thailand...."
`
Market uncertainty in Thailand: What's Adams allud-
ing to?
`
`
Under the headline "Thai Finance Minister Resigns,"
AP indirectly quotes the minister:
`
"Pridiyathorn said he no longer wanted 'to work un-
der the influence of some people whose behavior is
not entirely transparent...especially some [other cab-
inet] ministers.'"
`
Thai ministers whose behavior is hard to make out:
What's Pridiyathorn alluding to?
`
`
Did Thai officials help slip fake dollars made by The
Superpower itself into East Asian bank dealings --
thereby enabling The Superpower to raise a ruckus
about "counterfeiting" by the Democratic Peoples
Republic of Korea?
`
If so, they best verify the not entirely transparent
dollars slipped to them!

Openly And Frankly
`
`
It's been this way all along for decades --from the
19th century gutter press
`
DOWN
`
to today's gutter media.
`
But only now is it openly and frankly spoken of:
`
ADVERTISING IS TERRORISM.
`
And advertising as always fits neatly into the Wall
Street $cheme of things.
`
Neatly?
`
Terrorism can be properly evaluated.
`
AP reports "Turner Broadcasting Systems and an
advertising agency agreed Monday to pay $2 million
in compensation for planting blinking electronic de-
vices around the Boston area in a publicity stunt...."

`
`
AFP headline: "Sudan Charges US With Seeking To
Topple Regime."
`
Well, no doubt!  The Superpower seeks to destroy the
independence of ALL countries.  It goes about this
in various ways, depending on circumstances.
`
In the case of Sudan, a presidential adviser for the
Sudanese government discusses the local circum-
stances:
`
"The new American strategy for dismantling the
Sudanese government from within is based on inciting
international pressure on [the Sudanese government]
through human rights institutions and by bringing into
the country elements opposed to the government."
`
AFP reports the facts:
`
"The world's largest aid operation is run out of
Sudan, involving UN agencies and hundreds of NGOs.
`
"Many US and British rights groups -- including
Christian organisations -- have aggressively cam-
paigned for sanctions against" the government of
Sudan.
`
`
Any government that treasures its people's dignity
would run The Superpower's trash out of town.
`
Better, no government that treasures its people's
dignity would allow The Superpower's trash in,
in the first place.
`
The Superpower's trash = turmoil.
`
`
Specifically in the case of Sudan, the uproar about
Dafur was designed from its very beginning to divert
attention from The Superpower's
`
KILL ALL
`
BURN ALL
`
LOOT ALL
`
war in Iraq.
`
`
"The new American strategy for dismantling the
Sudanese government from within" is thus intimately
entangled with The Superpower's wish to destroy the
independence of ALL countries from without.
`
Specifically, The Superpower is using its from-without
factor in Sudan "by bringing into the country elements
opposed to the government."
`
Elements?  Peacekeepers...
`
Peacekeepers?  Warmaking mercenaries.
`
`
And underlying the turmoil of lies is the fact reported
by AFP:
`
"China absorbs some 60 percent of Sudan's oil out-
put, and is by far the largest foreign investor in the
country."

The Wailing Wall – Part 3

The Wailing Wall - Part 3
`
`
In Part 2, I recommended Daniele Ganser's book
*NATO's Secret Armies: Operation Gladio and ter-
rorism in Western Europe.*
`
In an interview datelined Zurich January 22, 2007
Silvia Cattori interviewed Ganser.  The interview's
online at Voltaire Network.
`
Here's excerpts from the English translation.  I've
made the translation more like English.
`
{start}
`
Daniele Ganser: It is extremely important to under-
stand what the strategy of tension truly represents,
the way it works nowadays.
`
Only a few people know what the expression "strate-
gy of tension" means. 
`
It is a tactic that involves carrying out criminal acts
and attributing them to someone else.
`
By the term "tension," we mean emotional tension,
all that which creates a feeling of tension. 
`
By "strategy" we make reference to that which
increases people’s fear in regard to a determined
group.
`
`
Silvia Cattori: You have talked about an important
emotional factor in the strategy of tension.  There-
fore, the terror, whose origin is vague, uncertain, the
fear that it causes, all that helps to manipulate the
public opinion.
`
Are we not assisting today to the same kind of pro-
cedure?  Yesterday, we fuelled the fear of commun-
ism, today aren’t we fuelling the fear of Islam?
`
Daniele Ganser: Yes, there is a very clear parallel.
During the planning of the war in Iraq, it was said
that Saddam Hussein had biological weapons in his
possession, that there was a link between Iraq and
the Al-Qaeda terrorists.  But none of that turned out
to be true.
`
By means of these lies, it was intended to make peo-
ple believe that Muslims wanted to spread terrorism
all around, and that this war was necessary to fight 
against terror.
`
However, the true reason for this war is the control of
energy resources.  This is due to the fact that the geo-
logy, the richness in gas and oil, are concentrated in
the Muslim countries.
`
He who wants to monopolize them, must hide behind
this type of manipulations. 
`
`
That is why Muslims are labelled as "terrorists".  It is
all a big lie, but if it is repeated a thousand times that
Muslims are "terrorists," people will end up believing
it and thinking that the wars against Muslims are use-
ful; and to forget that there are several types of ter-
rorism, that violence is not necessarily a feature of
Islam [alone].
`
`
Silvia Cattori: So, these [NATO] clandestine structures
might have well been dissolved, but the strategy of
tension continues?
`
Daniele Ganser: Exactly. The structures might have
been dissolved, and other ones could have been
formed.
`
It is important to explain how, in the strategy of ten-
sion, the tactic and manipulation work.  None of that
is legal.  But, for the governments, it is easier to man-
ipulate people than to tell them that they are trying
to get hold of somebody else’s oil.
`
Nevertheless, not all these attacks arise from the stra-
tegy of tension.  But it is difficult to know which ones 
are the manipulated attacks.  Even those who know
the amount of attacks that have been manipulated by
the governments to discredit a political enemy, can be
confronted by a psychological obstacle.
`
After every bombing, people are afraid, they feel con-
fused.  It is very difficult to accept the idea that the
strategy of tension, the strategy of false flag, is a re-
ality.  It is easier to accept the manipulation and to
say: "I have kept informed for 30 years, and I have
never heard about these criminal armies.  The Mus-
lims are attacking us; this is why we fight against
them."
`
`
Silvia Cattori: Since 2001, the European Union has
created anti-terrorist measures.  Later, is has been
seen that these measures have allowed the CIA to
kidnap people, to move them to secret places and
torture them.  Have the European States become a
sort of hostages to their submission to the United 
States?
`
Daniele Ganser: The European countries have had
quite a weak attitude concerning the United States
after the attacks on September 11th, 2001.
`
After having confirmed that the secret prisons were
illegal, they let them continue. The same happened
with the prisoners in Guantanamo. Many voices stood 
up in Europe to say: "The prisoners cannot be de-
prived of a lawyer or defence." When Mrs. Angela
Merkel mentioned this question, the United States
clearly suggested that Germany was a little bit invol-
ved in Iraq, that its secret services had contributed
to prepare this war, and therefore they must shut up.
`
`
Silvia Cattori: But, we cannot see what it is that in-
terests the European countries and that makes them
engage their troops in the wars decided by the Penta-
gon, as was the case in Afghanistan.
`
Daniele Ganser: I think that Europe is confused.  The
United States is in a strong position, and the Europe-
ans have a tendency to think that the best thing is to
collaborate with the strongest one.
`
But we would have to think about this more thorough-
ly.  The European politicians give in easily to the pres-
sure put by the US, who is always asking for more
troops in this or that front.  The more the European
countries give in, the more they subordinate [them-
selve],...the more they will find themselves confront-
ed by bigger and bigger problems.
`
In Afghanistan the Germans and the British are under
the command of the American army.  Strategically, it
is not a position in the interests of these countries.
Now, the US has asked the Germans to engage their
soldiers in the South of Afghanistan as well, in the
areas were the battle is the hardest.  If the Germans
accept, they take the risk of being massacred by the
Afghan forces which refuse the presence of any kind
of occupier.  _ Germany should ask itself seriously
whether she should not rather withdraw their 3000
soldiers from Afghanistan.  But, for the Germans, to
disobey the US’ orders, to which they are a bit like
lieges [= vassals], it is a very hard step to make.
`
`
The European countries must wake up and understand
once and for all how the strategy of tension works.
`
And they must also learn to say "no" to the US.
`
`
We are prone to manipulation if we are afraid.  Afraid
of losing the respect from the people that we love.  We 
cannot get out of this spiral of violence and terror if
we let the fear take over.  It is normal to be afraid, but
we must overtly talk about this fear and about the ma-
nipulations that generate it.
`
Nobody can escape their [= the manipulations'] con-
sequences.  This is even more serious when the poli-
ticians in charge react often under the effect of fear.
`
One must find the strength to say: "Yes, I am afraid
to know that these lies make people suffer; yes, I am
afraid to think that there is less oil left; yes, I am a-
fraid to think that this terrorism they talk about is the
consequence of manipulations, but I will not let my-
self become intimidated."
`
{end}
`
`
Strategy of tension = strategy of false flag.
`
Definition?
`
False flag operations is the expression used to talk
about terrorist acts, conducted secretly by govern-
ments or organizations, and which are made to be
seen as having been conducted by somebody else.
`
This strategy has evolved.  Note the last sentence
of Part 2:
`
Major, major atrocities are favored weapons of The
Superpower and of Iran, which are fighting for dom-
inance in Iraq.
