Lieutenant-Colonel Shalom Eisner regretted an IDF chief of StaffBenjamin Netanyahu condemned the incident and said that “such conduct is not characteristic of IDF soldiers and commanders and has no place in the IDF and the State of Israrl Central Command Chief Major-General Nitzan Alon ordered an immediate inquiry of the event. It has been decided that Eisner be suspended until the full investigation is completed. Meanwhile, the Military Advocate General has ordered an IMP (Investigating Military Police) investigation. IDF chief Gantz said: “This event does not reflect the IDF’s values and will be thoroughly investigated and handled with the necessary severity.”

Ynet has obtained Eisner’s version of events as he told it to his associates. The deputy commander of the Jordan Valley Territorial Brigade said that after hearing of the activists’ intention of blocking Route 90 he showed up at the scene and ordered the forces to prevent the blocking of the road.


“I explained to the activists that many travelers were using the road because of the holiday and that they are posing a major security risk,” he said. Eisner noted he had done the same thing when groups of right-wing activists had tried to access the road for protests.

He said he allowed the activists to demonstrate inside the village of Ouja and ride off the road. “All was calm and in control and that is why I didn’t bring a water canon and gave them 15 minutes to protest,” he said.


“It was a group of 60 activists and suddenly two buses arrived and the activists all together called to block the road while closing our barrier. One of the Palestinian organizers told me at this stage that she no longer had control over the event.”

‘One punch too many’


Lt. Col. Eisner claims that some of the protesters started attacking him with sticks which caused one of his fingers to break. He also suffered a major injury in his wrist which required a cast. “The weapon was the only thing I had in my hands. The whole thing lasted 60 seconds, we prevented them from getting on the road and they boarded the bus. Obviously, they didn’t show the part where they attacked us with sticks in the video.”


Eisner’s jeep contained a crowd dispersal kit which was not used during the event. “There was no reason for me to fire a gas grenade as there had been no violence in the course of two hours of dialogue. I thought about using the kit, but I decided it would be better to let them calm down.”

Lt. Col. Eisner’s associates say that the highly esteemed officer had demonstrated restraint in previous incidents. In one instance, he helped deliver the baby of a Palestinian woman at a checkpoint and in another chased after Jewish drivers who had ran over a Palestinian girl and left her on the road. “I may have given one punch too many but I’m against violence as a concept. Sadly, the media reports are all that will be remembered,” he said.


“I could have stopped them but I didn’t because I wanted a peaceful solution to the event. It’s obvious the video had been edited and that it caused damage to the State of Israel. We should have had our own documenting crew,” Eisner remarked.


“What they were trying to do risked my life and the lives of many others. We maintained restraint for two hours. Some of the soldiers told me, ‘Stop it, they’re inciting.’ I should have been better prepared. They caught us off guard. I used whatever I had in my hands.”


Some of Eisner’s former subordinates said he showed restraint during riots and always opts for the path of negotiations. “The video is tendentious and edited,” they said.



Tom Friedman.

Tom Friedman, artist’s conception.

Friedman possesses all of the qualities that make a pundit truly wankerific. He fetishizes a false “centrism” which is basically whatever Tom Friedman likes, imagining the Friedman agenda is both incredibly popular in the country and lacking any support from our current politicians, when in fact the opposite is usually true. Washington worships at the altar of the agenda of false centrism, and people often hate it. Problems abroad, even ones which really have nothing to do with us, should be solved by war, and problems at home should be solved by increasing the suffering of poor and middle class people. Even though one political party is pretty much implementing, or trying to implement, 99.999999% of the Friedman agenda, what we really need is a third party catering precisely to this silent majority of Friedmanites.

Truly great wankers possess a kind of glib narcissism, the belief that everything is about them while simultaneously disavowing any responsibility for anything. The important thing about an issue is whether it proves Tom Friedman fucking right, but if it doesn’t we can just move on to the next big thing that will prove Tom Friedman fucking right. If you advocate for wars that go a bit bad, well, it’s not your fault. If only Tom Friedman had been in charge everything would have been great.

Such wankers are impervious to criticism because they’re always doing battle with straw critics. They never remember what they said last week, and assume you won’t either.

In April 2003 Friedman said that Arab journalists who talked about the US ‘occupation’ of Iraq were guilty of ‘Saddamism’. In August 2003 Friedman wrote: ‘This is an occupation.’

In 2007 he surmised that Iraqis ‘hate each other more than they love their own kids’. In 2009 he hoped that they’d learned from America’s ‘million acts of kindness’ and ‘profound example of how much people of different backgrounds can accomplish when they work together’.

In 2005 Friedman argued: ‘We have to have a proper election in Iraq so we can have a proper civil war there.’ Earlier this year, he wrote: ‘For all of the murderous efforts by al-Qaida to trigger a full-scale civil war in Iraq, it never happened.’ Never mind that in 2006 he said: ‘It is now obvious that we are not midwifing democracy in Iraq. We are baby-sitting a civil war.’

Tom Friedman is wrong about everything, and Tom Friedman don’t care!

Friedman actually styled himself a critic of the war he so strongly advocated for, but the path of his criticism was as Greenwald described:

(1) If the war is done the right way, great benefits can be achieved.
(2) If the war is done the wrong way, unimaginable disasters will result.
(3) The Bush administration is doing this war the wrong way, not the right way, on every level.
(4) Given all of that, I support the waging of this war.

If only the ungrateful wogs would have done what they should have done then everything would have been great.

If this blog has contributed one small thing to our discourse over the past decade it has been, thanks to a tip from a commenter, pointing out to the world Friedman’s Suck On This moment. You might have thought you knew why we went to war in Iraq, but Friedman knew the real reason.

I think it [the invasion of Iraq] was unquestionably worth doing, Charlie.

We needed to go over there, basically, um, and um, uh, take out a very big state right in the heart of that world and burst that bubble, and there was only one way to do it.

What they needed to see was American boys and girls going house to house, from Basra to Baghdad, um and basically saying, “Which part of this sentence don’t you understand?”

You don’t think, you know, we care about our open society, you think this bubble fantasy, we’re just gonna to let it grow?

Well Suck. On. This.


That, Charlie, was what this war was about. We could’ve hit Saudi Arabia, it was part of that bubble. We coulda hit Pakistan. We hit Iraq because we could.

That was then, and this was later.

To me, the most important reason for the Iraq war was never W.M.D. It was to see if we could partner with Iraqis to help them build something that does not exist in the modern Arab world: a state, a context, where the constituent communities — Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds — write their own social contract for how to live together without an iron fist from above.

For years Friedman spent dithering about the war. Oh gee it wasn’t going well, but the light at the end of the tunnel might be around the corner in another critical 6 months, leading me to coin the term Friedman Unit, or the F.U. It wasn’t just Friedman of course. Basically every pro-stay in Iraq person would utter some version of “the next six months is critical” on a regular basis. For years I put these statements in my calendar, and six months later would remind the world that nothing had changed and we are still in Iraq and the stupid fucking fuckstick is still writing in your newspaper or on the teevee blathering about the next crucial six months.

The state of the world is what it is in large part because people in positions of great power think this absurd buffoon of man is a Very Serious Person. This hasn’t actually been the Eschaton Decade, it’s been the Tom Friedman Decade. And the next one probably will be too.

Hillary Clinton parties in Colombia: Photos of dancing, beer-slugging secretary of state cause stir


By Dylan Stableford

Over the weekend, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton cut loose during her trip to the Summit of the Americas in Colombia, partying at a local club early Sunday morning.

And while the outing may be fairly typical of visitors to Latin American countries, photos showing Clinton dancing and throwing back a bottle of beer proved too irresistible for the tabloid press.

According to the New York Post, Clinton arrived at Cartagena’s Cafe Havana with a dozen female aides just after midnight.

“Clinton quickly proved she’s just a regular gal when it comes to drinking,” the Post reported. “She eschewed a glass and sucked down her Aguila pilsener cerveza straight from the bottle.”

According to a local paper cited by TMZ, Clinton and her party “ordered a dozen beers, two glasses of whiskey and bottles of water.”

TMZ dubbed her the Secretary of PARTYING.” Sadly, Clinton’s impromptu soiree lasted just half an hour.

The photo (below) landed on the Post’s front page. The headline: “SWILLARY.”

“Front page picture of ‘Swillary’ Clinton is brutally unfair,” Ari Fleischer, former White House press secretary under George W. Bush and current CNN analyst, wrote on Twitter. “She drank a beer at a summit meeting event. So what?”

London’s Telegraph latched onto the photos, too. “Is Hillary Clinton becoming an embarrassment as Secretary of State? the paper’s Niles Gardner asked in a blog post.

“Hillary Clinton will be the inspiration for my return to salsa this week,” Salon’s Irin Carmon tweeted.

This is not the first time Hillary’s drinking on a diplomatic trip has been fodder for the press. In 2006, the New York Times relayed a 2004 anecdote about a vodka-drinking contest between Clinton and Sen. John McCain:

Two summers ago, on a Congressional trip to Estonia, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton astonished her traveling companions by suggesting that the group do what one does in the Baltics: hold a vodka-drinking contest.

Delighted, the leader of the delegation, Senator John McCain, quickly agreed. The after-dinner drinks went so well— memories are a bit hazy on who drank how much—that Mr. McCain, an Arizona Republican, later told people how unexpectedly engaging he found Mrs. Clinton to be. “One of the guys” was the way he described Mrs. Clinton, a New York Democrat, to some Republican colleagues.

IsraHell Police establishes unit to enforce demolition of Bedouin homes


The unit, which will be made up of 200 police officers, will be established in cooperation with the Prime Minister’s Office in order to enforce Israeli land laws in the Negev.

By Yanir Yagne

Israel Police is establishing a new unit to enforce demolition and evacuation orders served to scattered Bedouin villages in southern Israel, in order to deal with “trespassing into state lands.”

The unit, which will be made up of 200 police officers, will be established in cooperation with the Prime Minister’s Office to enforce Israeli land laws in the Negev.

The unit’s establishment follows a government decision reached last August, in which Minister of Internal Security Yitzhak Aharonovich was granted permission to begin deploying the officers beginning August 1, 2012. Israel Police’s Southern District has yet to announce an official plan of operation, which will be charged with evacuations and demolitions.

The unit will operate alongside the Interior Ministry, the Israel Land Administration, the Ministry of the Environment, and the Prime Minister’s Office among others.

The plan to establish the new unit was received with harsh criticism from Negev residents, who claim that the use of force by police as a means to solve the land dispute is the “wrong move.”

“We do not need the police in order to reach an agreement. We must sit down and solve the issue through negotiations,” said Ibrahim al-Wakiliwho heads the regional council of unrecognized Bedouin communities in the Negev. “We are not interested in a confrontation with the police…the police previously used violent force against young children.”

Israel Police’s Southern District has refused to comment on the matter.

The announcement of the unit’s establishment comes less than a month after a five-year economic development plan for Israeli Bedouin was approved by a steering committee in the Prime Minister’s Office, as part of operational plans for relocating tens of thousands of Bedouin to officially recognized communities.

The proposal calls for the relocation of up to 30,000 Bedouin from areas not recognized by the government as residential locations. Known as the Prawer Plan, it was approved by the cabinet in September, based on a proposal developed by a team headed by the director of policy planning in the PMO, Ehud Prawer. At that time, the cabinet also approved a NIS 1.2 billion economic development program for Bedouin Negev.

The spirit of Kim Il Sung lives on


By Deirdre Griswold

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is preparing to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Kim Il Sung, an amazing revolutionary who for more than 60 years led the Korean people’s struggle against imperialist domination.

Kim Il Sung as a
young revolutionary

His life began in April 1912, shortly after Japan had formally annexed Korea as its colony. His political development included years of anti-colonial struggle and the building of an anti-imperialist armed guerrilla force that finally achieved liberation of the north in 1945.

Kim Il Sung had to reorient the struggle after the defeat of Japan, when the United States sent troops to occupy the southern half of Korea and tried to roll back the socialist revolution in the north. The Korean people knew from direct and bitter experience what Japanese colonial rule had meant. But they were to discover that U.S. imperialism was just as brutal and just as intent on controlling and exploiting Korea, albeit under the name of “democracy.”

We cannot do justice in one small article to all that Kim Il Sung accomplished for the Korean struggle and the world movement for socialism. In this piece, we will focus on why Kim became a communist, as explained in his autobiographical series of books entitled “Reminiscences with the Century.” (Foreign Languages Publishing House, Pyongyang)

Kim came from a family of poor farmers who sacrificed much to give their children an education. His family was proud of having fought foreign aggressors: “When the U.S. imperialist aggressors’ ship General Sherman sailed up the River Taedong and anchored at Turu Islet, my great-grandfather, together with some other villagers, collected ropes from all the houses and stretched them across the river … to block the way of the pirate ship.” The ship opened fire on the people of Pyongyang, but the villagers set it ablaze and it sank with all hands aboard. This struggle in 1866 resonated in the Kim family for generations.

Kim Il Sung described his father, who died at the early age of 31, as “a pioneer of our country’s national liberation movement.” His father was an early organizer for the Korean National Association, which was building resistance to the “living hell” created by Japanese imperialism. One of Kim’s first political memories was, at the age of six, visiting his father in a Japanese-run prison. The next year, during an uprising for independence, he saw for the first time the killing of a Korean by troops of the colonial regime.

In this period, many Korean patriots fled to China and Siberia, where there were large Korean communities. After the 1917 Russian Revolution, “when the combined forces of imperialism and the internal enemy who followed their dictates pounced upon the Soviet Union … thousands of Korean young people gave their blood and lives with arms in hand either in the guerrilla ranks or in the Red Army in order to defend the socialist system,” Kim wrote.

Inspired by the proletarian revolution

This revolution of the workers and peasants in Russia inspired the anti-imperialist movement in neighboring Korea. Kim remembered his father explaining his idea of the proletarian revolution “as the building of a new society which would provide rice to those who had no food and … clothes to those who had no clothing … [and thus] he awakened the workers, peasants and other working masses to a progressive idea and united them into one revolutionary force.”

The Korean Communist Party had been founded in 1925 but “ended its existence as an organized force in 1928 owing to the cruel suppression on the part of the Japanese imperialists and the factional strife in its highest circles,” Kim wrote.

While still in his teens, Kim Il Sung became immersed in the political debates roiling the Korean exile community in Manchuria, a province of China. The Korean nationalist movement and the communist movement often were in struggle with each other, and Kim looked for ways to bring the best of them together.

The Korean revolutionaries in China also had to respect the fact that they were in another country and had important relations with the Chinese Communist Party, which itself suffered big setbacks in 1927.

Different groups of communists vied for recognition from the Comintern, based in Moscow, which dissolved the Korean Communist Party in 1928. It was in this period that Kim began developing the view that later became known as “Juche,” or self-reliance. Of his group of young revolutionaries, he wrote, “We came to the conclusion that it would be impossible to found a revolutionary party by rebuilding the party that had been dissolved or by relying on the existing generation that was infected with the vicious habit of factional strife.”

Rather than being discouraged by these problems, the new generation of revolutionaries in 1930 formed the Society for Rallying Comrades, in which “the communists from among the new generation overcame the mistakes made by the communists of the preceding generations and pioneered a new way of winning over the masses and employing the art of leadership. The heroic fighting spirit and the revolutionary fighting traits displayed by the communists of the new generation became the motive force enabling us to defeat the Japanese imperialist aggressors.”

The leadership of the DPRK today is imbued with this spirit of resistance to foreign domination and reliance on the masses of people to build a socialist society. It is this spirit that has enabled the Korean Revolution to endure despite a century of Japanese and later U.S. imperialist aggression.

Already, U.S. and IsraHell’s Netanyahu are at odds over progress at Iran nuke talks

By Sheera Frenkel
 McClatchy Newspapers

JERUSALEM — Just two days after representatives of the United States and other key world powers met in Istanbul with Iran to discuss its nuclear program, Israel is throwing cold water on the effort, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu charging that Iran was being given a “freebie.”

Both U.S. and Iranian leaders expressed satisfaction with the initial meeting Saturday of talks between Iran and the P5+1 _ the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany. Both sides saw the agreement to meet again May 23 in Baghdad as a step forward after more than a year of no talks.

But Netanyahu was unimpressed. “My initial impression is that Iran has been given a freebie,” Netanyahu said. “It has got five weeks to continue enrichment without any limitation, any inhibition.”

President Barack Obama had defended the talks in comments to reporters Sunday in Cartagena, Colombia, where he was meeting with heads of state from Latin America. He called the talks “an opportunity for us to negotiate and see if Iran comes to the table in good faith.”

“The notion that somehow we’ve given something away … would indicate that Iran has gotten something,” Obama said. “In fact, they’ve got some of the toughest sanctions that they’re going to be facing coming up in just a few months if they don’t take advantage of these talks. I hope they do.”

Officials in Jerusalem, however, remained pessimistic over the talks, saying that the U.S. and world leaders were giving Iran the one thing they needed to develop a nuclear weapon _ time.

“History teaches us that so far, Iran has always used ‘talks’ to buy time, and in that time they have moved their nuclear weapons program forward,” said Eitan Livne, director of Iran Research for the Israel Project advocacy group. “The Iranians have proven to be experts in this maneuver.”

Livne said that Israeli officials feel vindicated by a report released in November by the International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.N.’s nuclear watchdog, that found that Iran had a program to develop nuclear weapons until 2003 and that some parts of that program might still survive. The report, however, said the IAEA had been unable to determine if Iran was pursuing nuclear weapons now.

“Israel feels that it is clear in the eyes of the world, especially after the U.N. report, that Iran’s intentions are dangerous and that this is a military nuclear program. Iran has already postponed, in a very effective way, all past attempt to negotiate with them. That is why Israel currently feels so pessimistic,” Livne said.

A senior Israeli official, interviewed by the Hebrew-language daily Maariv, was quoted as saying that Israel’s government had held different expectations for the talks in Istanbul.

“In contrast with the understanding we reached, we were surprised that the Iranians were given five more weeks to continue enriching uranium without interruption. This was not at all our expectation from the talks,” the paper reported the official as saying. The official was not named.

A statement from Netanyahu’s office said that the Israeli premier found the results of the talks unacceptable _ arguing that Iran must immediately stop all uranium enrichment, remove enriched material from the country, and dismantle the nuclear facility in Qom.

Israel’s expectations were unrealistic, said Professor David Menashri, director of the Center for Iranian Studies at Tel Aviv University.

“I can understand that Israel is not happy with the talks so far, but that is because their expectation was that Iran would be given a simple choice to say yes or no,” Menashri said. “Israel would have preferred a harsher policy towards Iran _ but that is always their position.”

Israeli officials, Menashri said, were making a mistake in openly criticizing the talks so quickly.

“I had hoped that our politicians would shut their mouths on the issue of Iran and let the international community handle it for a change,” he said. “Israel should not clash with the U.S., and they should give the talks some time before declaring them a failure.”

He criticized the saber-rattling that he said was all too common in the Israeli press.

Over the weekend, Israel’s Channel Ten news program featured a lengthy report on Israel’s air force gearing up for an attack on Iran this summer.

The report, which featured senior military reporter Alon Ben-David, was arranged and approved by the Israeli military’s press office. It was also given clearance by Israel’s military censor.

“Dozens if not more planes” will take part in the mission: attack and escort jets, tankers for mid-air refueling, electronic warfare planes and rescue helicopters, the report said.

While no strike is likely to occur before the P5+1 talks with Iran resume in May, Ben-David said that the “coming summer will not only be hot but tense.”

“Years of preparations are likely to come to realization,” he said, adding that “the moment of truth is near.”

MAERICAN NAZI ARMY: Update On War Crime Those Laboratory Mice Were Children

By Karlos Zurutuza

Information Clearing House

At Fallujah hospital they cannot offer any statistics on children born with birth defects – there are just too many. Parents don’t want to talk. “Families bury their newborn babies after they die without telling anyone,” says hospital spokesman Nadim al-Hadidi. “It’s all too shameful for them.”

“We recorded 672 cases in January but we know there were many more,” says Hadidi. He projects pictures on to a wall at his office: children born with no brain, no eyes, or with the intestines out of their body.

Facing a frozen image of a child born without limbs, Hadidi says parents’ feelings usually range between shame and guilt. “They think it’s their fault, that there’s something wrong with them. And it doesn’t help at all when some elder tells them it’s been ‘god’s punishment’.”

The pictures are difficult to look at. And, those responsible for all this have closed their eyes.

“In 2004 the Americans tested all kinds of chemicals and explosive devices on us: thermobaric weapons, white phosphorous, depleted uranium…we have all been laboratory mice for them,” says Hadidi, turning off the projector.

The months that followed the invasion of Iraq in 2003 saw persistent demonstrations against the occupation forces. But it wasn’t until 2004 when this city by the Euphrates river to the west of Baghdad saw its worst.

On Mar. 31 of that year, images of the dismembered bodies of four mercenaries from the U.S. group Blackwater hanging from a bridge circulated around the world. Al-Qaeda claimed the brutal action – and the local population paid the price for Operation Phantom Fury that followed. According to the Pentagon, this was the biggest urban battle since Hue (Vietnam, 1968).

The first crackdown came in April 2004 but the worst was in November of that year. Random house-to- house checks gave way to intense night bombings. The Americans said they used white phosphorus “to illuminate targets at night.” But a group of Italian journalists soon gave documentary evidence that white phosphorus had been just another of the banned weapons used against civilians by the U.S. troops.

The total number of victims is still unknown. In fact, many of them are not born yet.

Abdulkadir Alrawi, a doctor at Fallujah hospital, is just back from examining an intriguing new case. “This girl was born with the Dandy Walker syndrome. Her brain is split in two and I doubt she’ll survive.” As he speaks, the lights go off again in the whole hospital.

“We lack the most basic infrastructure, how do they want us to cope with an emergency like this?”

According to a study released by the Switzerland-based International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health in July 2010, “the increases in cancer, leukaemia and infant mortality and perturbations of the normal human population birth sex ratio in Fallujah are significantly greater than those reported for the survivors of the A-Bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.”

Researchers found there had been a 38-fold increase in leukaemia (17-fold in the Japanese locations). Reputed analysts such as Noam Chomsky have labelled such conclusions as “immensely more embarrassing than the Wikileaks leaks on Afghanistan.”

Samira Alaani, chief doctor at Fallujah hospital, took part in a study in close collaboration with the World Health Organisation. Several tests conducted in London point to unusually large amounts of uranium and mercury in the hair root of those affected. That could be the evidence linking the use of prohibited weapons to the extent of congenital problems in Fallujah.

Other than the white phosphorus, many point to depleted uranium (DU), a radioactive element which, according to military engineers, significantly increases the penetration capacity of shells. DU is believed to have a life of 4.5 billion years, and it has been labelled the “silent murderer that never stops killing.” Several international organisations have called on NATO to investigate whether DU was also used during the Libyan war.

This month the Iraqi Health Ministry, in close collaboration with the WHO, will launch its first study ever on congenital malformations in the governorates of Baghdad, Anbar, Thi Qar, Suleimania, Diala and Basra.

Sandwiched between the borders of Iran and Kuwait, Basra sits above massive oil reserves. The population in this southernmost province has suffered fighting much more than any other region: from the war with Iran in the 1980s to the Gulf War in 1991 and the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.

A study by the University of Baghdad pointed out that cases of birth defects had increased tenfold in Basra two years before the invasion in 2003. The trend is still on the rise.

Basra Children’s Hospital, specialising in paediatric oncology, opened in 2010. Funded with U.S. capital, this facility was initiated by former U.S. first lady Laura Bush. But like the hospital in Fallujah, this supposedly state-of-the-art facility lacks basic equipment.

“The X-ray machine spent over a year-and-a-half stored at Basra port due to an administrative dispute over who should pay port fees. Our children would die as they waited for radiotherapy treatment that did not come,” says Laith Shakr Al-Sailhi, father of a sick boy and director of the Children’s Cancer Association of Iraq.

“The waiting list for treatment in Baghdad is endless and time is never on the side of the patients,” says Al- Sailhi from the barracks that host his NGO headquarters next to the hospital.

“Besides, these children’s diseases also lead to economic ruin of their families. Those who can afford it pay up to 7,000 dollars in Syria or up to 12,000 dollars in Jordan for treatment. The cheapest option is Iran, with rates at an average of 5,000 dollars.

“Today, families are flocking to Tehran for their children to be treated. Many of them are sleeping in the streets because they can’t afford to pay a hotel room.”

Is it Time for Americans to Take up Arms?


Are We Too Late to Stop the Police State?

By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

What have things come down to when a mainstream democrat, reluctant “Obamacare” supporter tells you the guy he has voted for and, worst of all, may suggest voting for again, has lost his friggin’ mind?

When Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act, apologizing for the sections that ended our constitution, civil trials, all human rights in America, I suspected something was going on I didn’t see.  How could Obama do this?  How could he break so many promises?

Homeland Security Buys Nearly 1 Billion Rounds of This Illegal Ammunition


I remember 1999 when the Project for a New American Century called for a “New Pearl Harbour” and only a few months after they get into office, an illegal act on a 5/4 Supreme Court vote in itself, the World Trade Center is blown up and the Pentagon attacked.

Anyone who still believes any of that is coincidence, please go elsewhere.

Then we get a new law, it allows the government to arrest demonstrators at locations it deems “government related?”  Are we talking Dick Cheney’s heart transplant party here?  With no hard definition, this is martial law.  Even with one, it is blatantly unconstitutional, same as with the NDAA.

Then the Supreme Court decides to allow police to strip search anyone, anywhere for any reason.  If this isn’t considered unconstitutional, remember the language, “unreasonable search,” I don’t know what is?

Then we have the DHS, the Department of Homeland Security, a name I find offensive, buying 750,000,000 rounds of .40 cal hollow point ammunition.  Who for?


Even the army can’t use it, their 9mm and hollow points are illegal, police don’t use them, the army can’t, but the DHS has enough to fight WW2 twice over and more.  In fact, the ammunition being purchased in massive quantities is specifically designed, not to wound or even just to kill.  It is designed to maim, to cause injuries that will eliminate any need for emergency treatment as the video above makes abundantly clear.

Nearly a billion rounds.


Sounds to me like someone is both afraid and planning something.

Sounds to me like our government is afraid of the people of the United States, the “electorate” they are meant to “serve” not “rule” and are planning to use all this force and these extremely illegal laws against our own country.

It seems to me like the government of the United States is, in itself, planning a rebellion against America.  Passing laws that violate the constitution is a crime.

In many states, it is now illegal, not just  to protest anything but to photograph police?  What do they have to hide?  If you don’t want to be photographed, it seems to me you are planning to commit a crime.  If you don’t like evidence, then move to a police state where trials and evidence don’t count.

Are we there already?

There are three primary issues that have changed in America.  I can’t say these, in particular, are the driving forces for the acceleration of events leading to increased police powers, government’s assault on human rights and the general feeling, the “fear of government” that millions of Americans of varied political and social beliefs are now expressing.

  • The most important and I believe most easily proven is the failure of the controlled media to hold the public’s attention and to convince the public that the government should, not only be above the law, but that the government may well be systematically perpetrating terrorist activities as a rationale for increased controls.  The “mainstream media,” now openly referred to as the “controlled media” has been pushing a message of fear, race hatred, class envy and wild conspiracy theories like the 9/11 hijackers and magic exploding buildings.  When the public’s emotional response wore down and the frontal lobes kicked in, these methodologies became unmarketable.
  • Induced civil war:  This has been the major political tool of the last several decades, primarly based on white against black and “haves” against “have nots.”  However, with the collapse of 2007-8, there are many more “have nots” than “haves.”  Where African Americans or Hispanics were targeted, based on their higher levels of poverty, the current situation, general joblessness, homeless and even starvation now crosses lines never seen before in the United States.  For 30 years, the percentage of those graduating from college has gone down while at the same time our standard of living, for the first time in our history, has gone down for decades in a row.  There had never been a downturn, even during wartime.
  • The third and most curious of the group is the rise of antisemitism.  Not before Netanyahu was an Israeli government overtly hostile to the American people.  Previously, Israel had aligned, during the Cold War, with the Soviets against America but did so without public pronouncements.  The Jonathan Pollard spying incident and the attack on the USS Liberty are two isolated areas of evidence of such.  Now, millions of Americans who had looked on Israel as a “victim” of terrorism now see Jews as financial criminals and the prime movers behind the Bush administration and their failed warlike policies.  Rather than blaming the individuals responsible, there has been a general feeling expressed of distrust or worse, how widespread is unknown as the media itself is prohibited from reporting on such issues in general.  That is quickly changing, which we hope will create a constructive dialog.


We have several areas of government conspiracies to consider.  The traditional one has involved the FBI creating militia type movements themselves.  They no longer have the patience to wait for them to form and then infiltrate them and push them toward acts of violence.  They must believe the younger generation are too lazy.

The Hutaree incident in Michigan last months is one such incident where the FBI was caught by a Federal Judge.  Charges, with minor exception, were dropped when it was shown that an FBI informant with a long history of mental instability and criminal behavior, at the  behest of federal officials was, in actuality, the only member of a group of weapons enthusiasts with anti-government plans.

When the court learned the FBI had, in itself, fostered its own conspiracy and had, in itself, planned the murder of police officers, charges were thrown out.  Had police officers been killed because an FBI informant had been directed to do so as part of a “sting operation,” would the officials responsible have been arrested and punished.

In a broader sense, is it not a felony for a law enforcement organization to plan the murder of fellow officers in order to effect arrests?  In reading laws involving the crimes of “conspiracy to murder a law enforcement official,” there is nothing in the language that would prevent the immediate arrest of the FBI and US Attorney officials involved in this operation.

Operation Fast and Furious, wherein the Department of Homeland Security and the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms division supplied weapons to known criminals that were used in the killing of law enforcement officers, falls under the same laws.

All involved are subject to arrest, detention and execution.

Something else is there.  Are police being subjected to these efforts for a reason?  Does Homeland Security need police to feel angry, paranoid, isolated and prone toward acts of senseless violence and revenge?  We might also ask why police don’t ever seem to notice that every time they seem to be plotted against, the federal government’s hand is in it?

Forgiving lot, aren’t they?

The problem is, as with 9/11, is the murder by government officials of police officers going to be enough to justify whatever plans have been made, which are evidenced by the purchase of ammunition, the passage of unlawful laws and the enactment by government officials in a systematic manner of criminal conspiracies intended to lead to the murder of law enforcement officials?

On September 11, 2001, over 3000 Americans died in incidents that are no longer clear.  What we have learned is that Building 7 at the World Trade Center was destroyed by explosives and that there were people in the building that were murdered as a result of these orders given by a Larry Silverman, a leasing agent, not a government official at all.

Additionally, two other buildings, the largest and strongest in the world theoretically “pancaked” after being hit by airplanes that, according to aviation experts, were incapable of such performance and were not in the area at the time.

Scientific evidence has brought a number of questions to mind.

An interview with a high ranking Army intelligence officer indicates that, after years of accepting the 9/11 Commission Reports, he is of the belief that the twin towers at the World Trade Center were destroyed by nuclear weapons of new and innovative design that give off no residual radiation.  These weapons, called Deuterium/Tritium Fusion bombs are extremely small and no other device has been described that can be credited with vaporizing enough steel to build 3 Nimitz size aircraft carriers.

Steel beams weighing dozens of tons twisted into pretzels over 500 feet from the nearest heat source, something that didn’t happen at either Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Others question the Pentagon attack.

All question the invasion of Iraq, with most of the world declaring it a war crime.  Similarly, the attack on Afghanistan is considered illegal by 69% of Americans according to a recent poll.

The American people are, by any stretch of the imagination, no longer willing to be a part of whatever plans have been made for them.  Is this why the current election is so unique, with GOP candidates of incredible lack of qualifications, closets filled with skeletons, while key Democrats face criminal prosecution, Timothy Geithner of Treasury and Janet Napolitano of Homeland Security.

The entire Bush administration is under limited arrest, facing war crimes tribunals if taken into custody outside the United States.

We have received confirmations of reports that former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has been under a form of “house arrest” for years now.


The question at hand is “how is it going to be done?”  Will a dirty bomb or actual nuclear weapon be detonated in the United States?  Will Israeli groups, “rogue” or not, groups that stand accused by experts of complicity in 9/11 crimes, not just the World Trade Center but the George Washington Bridge attack and others, be used against the United States?

Are such groups representing the nation of Israel or working as private contractors for a secret society, the CIA or a terrorist group?

These concepts, 10 years ago outlandish, are on the tips of every tongue, from the White House and FBI to the Pentagon.

They just aren’t in the news.  In truth, nobody knows the truth and suspicions can go everywhere or anywhere.  Maybe this is the plan in itself.

And so it goes.

The Ghost Troop Nuclear Mutiny

“Someone could pop a mini-nuke in an American city, and have a fake Captain May implicate Ghost Troop.” — MAJ Fox


Major William Fox, a former Marine Corps officer, and Sergeant First Class Donald Buswell, a retired Army Intelligence NCO, both stand tall in any history of Ghost Troop. Both were key players in counter-false-flag missions, and afterward became key members of the unit staff. MAJ Fox worked tirelessly to write the trilogy about Ghost Troop, Mission of Conscience, while SFC Buswell contributed to The Lone Star Iconoclast editorial, Captain Eric H. May Deserves Medal of Honor.

Why would such honorable men conspire against their leader and exemplar, and urge other honorable men to join them? Are they so insidious, or am I so invidious? I think neither, and prefer to believe that it’s a matter of intelligence professionals who have the jitters.about our likely future — a false flag nuke with a nuke war to follow. My assessment of their anxiety comes from past and not present experience. There is nothing like a death sentence to steady the nerves, and I’ve neared the end so many times that I’m numb to the fears common to more vital men. I’m serene as the commander of Ghost Troop, and accordingly the most important (and unmentionable) officer of my generation.

I present the crucial emails of early April as an indication that we live in interesting times. I’ve edited some for brevity. and clarity, while trying to preserve both the key details and general sentiments.

Sunday, April 1, 2012, 7:26 PM, from MAJ Fox to CPT May:

I recently had a phone conversation with SFC Buswell, and we wondered about your current condition. He would like to visit you in person, and I hope you will be able to arrange this with him fairly soon. It is always great to receive your emails as evidence that you are still hanging in there.

Tuesday, April 3, 2012 11:12 AM, from SFC Buswell:to MAJ Fox:

I have not heard from Captain May. I have sent him several emails and a few phone messages, but perhaps his situation prevents any communications. Regardless, a conduit for communications like the cutting analysis Captain May wrote in the past is even more needed today.. The initial analysis he rendered on Obama was spot-on. In his December 2008 article False Flag Frankenstein? he called him “Black Bush” and “Nuclear Obama.”

Tuesday, April 3, 2012 at 2:05 PM, from MAJ Fox to SFC Buswell:

My single greatest concern remains the possibility that someone is exploiting the fact that Captain May has not been able to speak since around Jan 2011, and it is possible that some alien entity like Mossad-CIA-MI6 has hijacked his identity for nefarious purposes. Maybe the real Captain May has been dead for a while, and someone is using his identity. In the worst-case scenario, someone could pop a mini-nuke in an American city, and have a fake Captain May implicate Ghost Troop in some kind of trumped-up terrorist conspiracy plot. Captain May decided to ally himself with Islamic Intelligence in writing articles for Veterans Today. If someone were trying to set up Ghost Troop as part of an emergent “white Al Qaeda,” wouldn’t establishing links with some kind of Islamic intelligence be an obvious route?

Tuesday, April 3, 2012 8:52 PM, from SFC Buswell to MAJ Fox:

Yes, I agree with your assessments 100%. The part about Ghost Troop being compromised and the Islamic Intelligence are spot-on. I too questioned Captain May about this, he said it was his prerogative to cull whatever sources of intelligence he sees fit to utilize. One thing we may consider is writing a piece and publishing it, claiming that any future communiques from Captain May are likely fraudulent and not to be trusted. This is the final straw — once this is executed, there is no going back, and, if Captain May is still alive, just 100% incapacitated, then we will have egg on our faces, and no longer have an alliance with him. I’m going to call Mrs. May again, perhaps this weekend, and perhaps you can listen in on my conversation.

In this current situation, we are waiting for the other person to make a move. This is okay, since it gives us a chance to contemplate our next move, too. Another move to consider is that we publish something akin to this email, where the reader can see the situation we’re in and how we feel for Captain May and his leadership and writings, etc., and how we’re critically concerned that he may have been compromised, and that a result of this compromise there could be the scenarios you outlined.

. “In his December 2008 article False Flag Frankenstein? Captain May called him ‘Black Bush’ and ‘Nuclear Obama.'” — SFC Buswell

Tuesday, April 3, 2012 at 11:52 PM, from MAJ Fox to SFC Buswell:

I think that our best approach at present is to solicit ideas for ways to handle this situation from the individuals copied to this email and conduct an online email conference. In order to function as an effective cyber militia, I think that we have to be professional about identifying our own weaknesses. Hence, I am not worried if we make our concerns public about Captain May and we subsequently find out that he is alive. Captain May may be dead — and this could actually encourage a false flag attack that attempts to frame us. How ironic if a cyber unit originally intended to interdict  false flag attacks through public alerts actually helped foster one!

I like your idea of continuing your efforts to contact Captain May’s wife. Rather than going to the extra effort of involving myself in a phone call, it may be more effective for me to make my own separate efforts to contact her as well as other individuals who have been close to Captain May in Houston. As another idea, we may want to file a “missing person report” with Houston police and request their services in regard to determine Captain May’s status. However, we may have to be careful and selective, since in The Mayday Alert and the Assassination of Roland Carnaby I describe the strong likelihood that certain Houston police were used by the Mossad to assassinate CIA operative Roland Carnaby. Therefore, inviting certain Houston police into this situation could backfire. I look forward to your additional thoughts and recommendations, as well as those of other individuals copied to this email.

Friday, April 06, 2012 8:09 PM, from CPT May to MAJ Fox:

I apologize for delay in responding to your importunings that I verify my existence, but my disease has become more difficult, and reduced my ability to blink my eyes. Accordingly, although my mind is as quick as you remember, my writing has become glacial. It took me two long days to edit and republish your kind article of 2007, How Ghost Troop Stopped a BP Nuke, and it took another two for me to write my latest, JetBlue 191 Jumble: False Flag Flight?

I must congratulate you for achieving your aim of prodding me into action: by shotgunning my personal travails, your issues with me and invitations to my colleagues to undermine my credibility, you have become the foremost concern of your former commander. Accordingly, I invite you or your peer, SFC Buswell, to come to my house to confirm my existence.

Apropos of Buswell, I have been blocking email from him since receiving this, in which he threatened to do what you are doing. He revealed a grudge because I dragged his name into the successful Ghost Troop defense of Houston in July 2006. This was the only Ghost Troop mission in which he did more than sign alerts that I had written, and the except below invalidates even that:

Tuesday, October 18, 2011, 8:32 AM, from SFC Buswell to CPT May:

I know it must be extremely scary to be bound 100% to your bed, and to be 100% dependent on others for your survival. It likely seems that the only tools at your disposal are your ability to close down your family relations, and write articles and essay’s for the good of this nation. I was wondering if your mind was slipping away from ALS, but, clearly you are still in command of your mental abilities.

Bottom line still remains; your identity is at risk. If at any time I feel your identity has been compromised whereas any article you write if under duress, or, if after being hijacked by Mossad/Al-CIA-duh types, and their efforts will be to steer your words down another path, if I see this, or any sign of this, I promise you I will alert the world, and draw a line where Captain May’s articles end, and subversion began. You can take that as a threat if you wish, but I promise you I will do this — its the mission of my conscience — just like the mission of your conscience was to expose me as the one that gave you the “faxed intelligence” that saved lives in the Beaumont, Texas Exxon/Mobil false flag refinery explosion on July 2, 2006.

Saturday, April 7, 2012, 2:19 PM, from MAJ  Fox to CPT May:

Your invitation for SFC Buswell to visit you appears to be a step in the right direction. As I recollect the last time he met with you in person is when I also met him at your 50th birthday party at your house in Jan 2010. Please take it as a backhanded compliment that we are so concerned about keeping tabs on your real situation. If you and your activist work were not so important, many of us would certainly have more pressing areas to focus on. I believe that we should be transparent and accountable about real or potential deficiencies within Ghost Troop. To do otherwise could cause real concerns that, as an informal cyber militia, we are undisciplined, unprincipled, and otherwise out of control.

At the time I wrote the last email, I did not know of any better approach than to force this issue. I continue to admire your tenacity and ingenuity in overcoming your state of extreme incapacitation in order to communicate over the Internet. I look forward to a joint situation report from you and SFC Buswell.

Saturday, April 7, 2012, 5:37 PM, from CPT May to MAJ  Fox:

I’m out of patience with your importunity and presumption. In the last week I have published two articles, and have in unfortunate consequence had to defend myself against both you and SFC Buswell. The only effective course remaining for me is to end my correspondence with you, as I did with Buswell six months ago. I have limited time and resources, and can see no advantage in using them to placate you two.

Neither you nor Buswell are still members of Ghost Troop, you are Ghost Troop veterans. I only offer to suffer your visit to de-fang you, and thereby to defend myself against your threat to attack me.. I regret that you have forced me to cut connections, and henceforth will neither send email to you nor receive it from you. I part with gratitude for your former and favorable actions.


“There is no going back, and, if Captain May is still alive, just 100% incapacitated, then we will have egg on our faces.” — SFC Buswell

Addendum: The Ghost Troop/Islamic Intelligence articles:


  1. Introduction: False Flag Forecast, Summer 2011 — “We two editors could not be more different at first glance, but appearances can be deceiving. A Muslim Arab European and a Christian Anglo American, we began with mutual suspicion. Since then we have corresponded, found common ground and become both coauthors and friends. Surely this is an example of what will make a better world.”
  2. United States False Flag Forecast, Summer 2011— “The New American Century, with its radioactive warfare, genocide and unnatural disasters, is killing as many people as the Thousand Year Reich, with which it shares many characteristics.”
  3. United Kingdom False Flag Forecast, Summer 2011— “Mossad is planning a false flag operation against the city’s new Olympic stadium for mid-August. August 12 is a day to mark, they say, since it will be one year before the 8/12/2012 opening of the London Summer Olympics. They add that young Pakistanis living in the poorest parts of London will be blamed, and that Scotland Yard has already prepared a long list of suitable suspects.”
  4. Germany False Flag Forecast, Summer 2011 — “Informed sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, tell us that two years ago the Angela Merkle government was helping to arrange a WMD attack in Western Europe. Al Qaeda in Islamic Maghreb, a contrived French-Algerian-Israelis front organization, was to be blamed.”
  5. What Comes Next After Norway Northwoods? — “Five weeks ago we published Germany False Flag Forecast, Summer 2011, in which we identified two anniversaries as the most likely dates for a North Europe terror attack over the next ten weeks: July 20 for the German officers coup against Hitler, and July 22 for the Jewish terror attack against the King David Hotel. The July 22 terror attack in Norway confirmed our fears.”

Obama’s Iran Conundrum continues

U.S. President Barack Obama, right, talks with Prime Minister of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan during their bilateral meeting in Seoul, South Korea, Sunday, March, 25, 2012. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)

“President Obama has quietly signaled to Iran that the United States would accept an Iranian civilian nuclear program if Supreme leader Ali Khamenei can back up his recent public claim that his nation ‘will never pursue nuclear weapons,” the Washington Post’s  foreign affairs columnist David Ignatius said.

Obama sent the message to Tehran through Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan, who delivered it to Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei last week, said Ignatius.

A few days before traveling to Iran, Erdogan had held a two-hour meeting with Obama in Seoul in which Obama said that he still expected Iran to take advantage of this window of opportunity and hold talks with the six world powers.

Iran  has agreed to go ahead next week with the talks, despite some wrangling over the venue being Istanbul or Baghdad or China.

“The Erdogan back channel to Iran is the most dramatic evidence yet of the close relationship Obama has forged with the Turkish leader. Erdogan, who heads an Islamist party that is often cited as a model by Muslim democrats, has been a key U.S. partner in handling Syria and other crises flowing from the Arab Spring uprisings.”

“A sign of Erdogan’s role as intermediary is that he was accompanied, both in the meeting with Obama and on the trip to Iran, by Hakan Fidan, the chief of Turkey’s intelligence service. Fidan is said to have close relations with Qassem Suleimani, who heads Iran’s Quds Force and is probably Khamenei’s closest adviser on security issues. Also joining Erdogan was Ahmet Davutoglu, the Turkish foreign minister.”

“The Iranian nation has never pursued and will never pursue nuclear weapons,” Khamenei said in February. “Iran is not after nuclear weapons because the Islamic Republic, logically, religiously and theoretically, considers the possession of nuclear weapons a grave sin and believes the proliferation of such weapons is senseless, destructive and dangerous.”

Ignatius added that “the challenge for negotiators is whether it’s possible to turn Khamenei’s public rhetoric into a serious and verifiable commitment not to build a bomb.”
