Bad PR for Israel if it continues bombing Gaza during the inauguration
of Barack Obama as President of the US.
is obvious, Israel wants to stop the bombing of Gaza in time for the
inauguration of the new president. But Israel's proclaimed uni-lateral
cease fire does not work. At the moment it looks as if they will not
succeed to stop bombing during Tuesday, January 20, 2009. The world
has really enough of it. There has to be peace in that region by creating
a Palestinian state.
is about time that the Palestinians will also be a chosen people,
like we should stand in for so many other peoples on this planet.
And the Palestinians should be in full possession of the Gaza Strip
especially regarding the huge oil and gas field discovered in their
part of the sea waters. The European Union should help them exploit
09-29-2010: Im Holländischen Fernsehen wurde im Program "Nieuwsuur"
(Nachrichtenstunde) einen Beitrag gezeigt worin der Bürgermeister
von Berlin Neukölln Heinz Buschkowsky und der Moderator Michel
Friedman zu Wort kamen. Auch wurde Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel erwähnt
die die politische Entwicklungen in den Niederlanden kritisierte.
Angela Merkel, lieber Michel Friedman, lieber Heinz Buschkowsky,
haben gewiss nicht gut erforscht und verstanden dass die politische
und soziologische Lage in den friedlichen Niederlanden Ähnlichkeiten
aufweist mit der Lage in Ihrer friedlichen Bundesrepublik. Ihre Integrationspolitik
ist zum Teil ebenso gescheitert wie in den Niederlanden. Sie hätten
dass bestimmt wissen können wenn Sie nicht auf die elitären Journalisten
gehört hätten sondern selbst einiges erforscht hätten.
besteht der Verdacht dass die elitären Journalisten Wissenswertes
erfahren haben von holländischen Fachbrüdern die beim öffentlich-rechtlichen
niederländischen Fernsehen und bei bestimmten Zeitungen arbeiten,
und dass Sie diesen Journalisten auf deren Ehrenwort geglaubt haben
als die sagten dass Geert Wilders ein Jörg Haider sei sowie vorher
der ermordete Pim Fortuyn. Haider hatte extrem-rechtse Sympathien.
Fortuyn und Wilders sind eher als sozial zu betragten.
Lage in der Bundesrepublik ist bestimmt nicht einfach wie die vielen
Dokumentationen über Schulen, über Zusammenleben, über
die Trennung der Kulturen die regelmässig im ARD und beim ZDF gesendet
werden: Anne Will, Maybritt Ilner, Hart aber Fär und verschiedene
Dokumentarfilme über Verschiedenes sowie Türkische Schulen
Deutschland hat viele Kritiker so wie vor vielen Jahren Friedrich
Merz (CDU) der vor vielen Jahren den Begriff "Leikultur"
introduzierte, wie später Jürgen Möllemann (FDP) und
wie neulich Thilo Sarrazin (SPD) der das Buch mit dem Titel "Deutschland
schafft sich ab" veröffentlicht hat, wovon die Soziologin türkischer
Abstammung, Necla Kelek, bei Anne Will am Sontagabend den 5. September
bestätigte, dass die Fakten in Sarrazins's Buch überaus stimmten,
nur wenige Schlussfolgerungen wären inkorrekt. Und dann Rene Stadtkewitz
der in Pankow gegen den Bau einer Moschee kämpfte und dann aus der
CDU geschmissen wurde.
tun Politiker sich immer schwer ein sicheres Gleichgewicht in der
Gesellschaft nicht zu zerstören. In diesem Rahmen sind die Bemerkungen
Heinz Buschkowkys zu betrachten. Selbstverständlich kann er die politischen
Entwicklungen in den Niederlanden nicht positiv bewerten. Das wäre
unvernünftig denn das könnte seine eigene Politik der er gestalten
muss schaden. Er wäre bestimmt nicht gegen ein Burkaverbot wie in
Sarkozys Frankreich und in Bashar al-Assads Syrien wenn dies das Gleichgewicht
was Michel Friedman anbetrifft, sein Verhalten ist uns bekannt. War
er vor ein paar Jahren noch der spielerische Moderator und clevere
Opponent in scharfen Diskussionen, heute kann er nicht mehr so klar
sehen, obwohl er wieder gesund scheint.
Angela Merkel, lieber Michel Friedman, lieber Heinz Buschkowsky,
Ihre Kritik an den Niederländischen Politik und an den Politikern
ist nicht gerecht denn sie basiert sich auf falsche Tatsachen die
bestimmt keine Fakten sind.
The best suggestion to resolve the problem around the Cultural Muslim
Centre (Mosque) near Ground is to build a Multi Cultural Centre next
to Ground Zero where all the faiths reside: muslims, christians, buddhists,
etc. etc. who are not just given spaces for prayer, but also halls
for worship and sermons. It should be founded by the community of
New York and not just by one faith/religion.
part in such a center, the muslims will show that tolerance and the
freedom of religion as written in the United States Constitution is
fully accepted and that their religion is peaceful and tolerant towards

of adhering to the Roman Catholic faith.

Yes We Can - Barack Obama 44th President - - The United States of
world had been wondering if the United States were going ever more
down hill. Many thought that the Bush administration had caused the
beginning of a painful agony of a mighty nation gradually receding
and a power losing its foremost position.
In April many would not believe that Obama would win, there were doubts,
although ever more people were ready for a change. The day after the
election German ARD television compared the elements of Barack Obama's
win to a layered onion. The kernel was the uncommon start in Iowa
and the victory there. The first leave was his succesful fight against
Hillary Clinton. Then came John McCain's biggest mistake choosing
Alaska's governor Sarah Palin as his running mate (which advisor would
have proposed such a choice!). An important factor was also that Obama
inspired the young. About 118 million new voters were mobilized, the
majority of which would certainly vote for Barack Obama. Most important
however were the offices and the field work done by so many volunteers,
eager to turn the campaign into a success. They believed and wished
that a change was necessary. Great help came from the financial crisis
which triggered great hopes for a Democrat. That was another leaf
of the onion. And the outer layer were the millions spent by supporting
citizens. Even a dollar was welcome. And then there was the charismatic
personality of the man who started off as a social worker and eventually
studied at Harvard where he was loved by black and white. Chaisma
seems to be the main ingredient.
America with your choice for a new élan! For a new and positive
wave which will be deeply felt. Your choice will not only affect you,
but will inspire the entire world. Inspiration and positive will and
action are necessary because the legacy of the Bush administration
is enormous and the mistakes will be difficult to repair. There are
the wars in Afghanistan and Iraqe which in the future will be assessed
in a sensible and pragmatic way. The liaison with Europe will be rejuvenated.
The self imposed isolation of the USA will be reversed. Finding solutions
by assembling countries and find solutions on an international basis
instead of unilateral behaviour will now be possible.
At home companies will start making an effort to hire new workers
while receiving a premium. The new administration will try to help
homeowners. And hopefully a national health insurance will be in the
making. More people will give their time to their community. The youth
will be inspired and may want to go to school. Obama is their new
role model, their new idol. Becoming a basket ball player or becoming
a rapper is second and third choice. New beginnings are there. But
it all wil take time to realize only a small percentage. And yes,
hope will often fade, but will be inspired again and again. We should
not be impatient but always see the small changes and great results.
Bush, who, instead of serving his country, used the presidency in
order to compete with his father and wanted to be better than Bush
Senior, should not be allowed to walk away so easily. Should he be
indicted? At least a formal hearing on a large scale should be held
and all the damage he and his fellow members of the administration
have done to the USA and to the world, should be revealed and reviewed.
The Americans who for eight years have lived in a self imposed isolation,
in a country which neglected the Geneva Convention, an administration
which gave biased information and told lies, can now breathe again.
Tony Blair announced he is stepping down on June 27, 2007.
he can be brought to justice and tried at the International Court
of Justice in the Hague for crimes committed against humanity.
it possible that Tony Blair is getting away with "making the
world a safer place"? (to quote his friend, George W.)
Much will eventually be analysed and will hopefully be revealed: the
masquerade in the United Nations with Geoff Hoon and Jack
Straw ("Well, Dominique..."), the many lies, the death
of David Kelly (was it murder or suicide), the forced departure
of BBC director Greg Dyke, the construction of The Hutton Report,
the coinciding, untimely death of Robin Cook, etc.
Of course the world had to get rid of Saddam Hussein (and should get
rid of several other dictators as well, with or without oil). But
the strategy chosen by Bush and Blair was a concocted scheme based
on false information right from the start and they knew it. Their
scheming did not take reality into account at all and therefor it
was predestined to be a failure, right from the beginning.
And then there is the continuous obstruction by Great Britain of the
further development of the EU. Was this strategy also concocted together
with George W. Bush? Britain should better become a state of the US
and get out of the EU alltogether. See: CLIP

Some comments on the hanging of Saddam Hussein.
There were many comments on the death sentence and the hanging of
former dictator Saddam Hussein.
Tilgner of Germany's Seond hannel ZDF, analysed that Saddam Hussein
had been supported by the USA with weapons and funds in order to prevent
Iran to grow in power and significance. He failed. He was supported
by the USA in order to gain a dominant position in the region. Saddam
failed. And he was supported to bring order in his own country so
it could be an example for other countries in the region. He failed.
When Kuwait did not pay its debts, Saddam occupied the former province.
That was his fourth mistake.
The analyst of International French Television TV5 said that the process
against Saddam Hussein was cut short and the dictator was condemned
on a relatively small crime if compared to all the atrocities he himself
committed and those committed in his name. This short trial was to
prevent to unrevel the real facts. The analyst said that if the process
had really been a fair one and the lawyers would have gone to the
bottom of it, not only Iraqi's would have to testify, but also people
like Donald Rumsfeld (the US provided the weapons of mass destruction
which Iraq did not have any longer) and as a result Rumsfeld would
have had to stand trial as well. In that case Saddam's death sentence
would not have been too certain. Even Colin Powel would have to be
heard about his role in the years before the first Iraq war from 1991
and would have to face consequencies. And much more information would
surface. Questions like: Who supplied the ingredients for the nerve
gas which killed so many Kurds and was the massacre never condemned
by the West before Bush and Blair decided to invade Iraq?

Should the Danish Cartoons appear in all Western Newspapers?
visitor of my site mailed me and suggested that it would be a good

Germany's Susanne Osthoff kidnapped in Iraq. She faces possibly a
terrible ordeal. Is this a result of Angela Merkel's signing "The
Letter of Eight" in February and her subsequent visit to George
W. Bush in 2003?
Schröder said NO to Bush's warplans. But things have changed
in Germany since the election of Angela Merkel as Bundeskanzlerin
(chancellor). It is only a week into her reign and Angela Merkel is
already in trouble: a German citizen has been kidnapped, reportedly
by people of the Al Zarqawi clan. It is archeologist Susanne Osthoff
who has lived in Iraq for many years, was married to an Iraqi (a Suni)
and is converted to Islam. Merkel's ill judgement of the political
situation in the world in 2003, and her solidarity with George W.
Bush and his deliberate war plans, now seems to backfire on her. In
that light the symbolism is clear. A woman has been abducted.
Al Zarqawi was losing popularity in the region because of the terrorist
attacks in Jordan and the strong disapproval by king Abdul II backed
by the many clans and backed by the Jordanian people was the result.
The new abduction puts Al Zarqawi in the spotlight again.

A breeding place for the next generation of intolerant Christians?
Or is it the place were the true believers are born and meet?
question is legitimate. We shall not pretend that only in the Middle
Ages and the past centuries Christians were intolerant, were suppressors,
blessed the dictators, were warmongers and murderers, attending church
on Sundays and on weekdays were killing and depriving others to have
a bearable life.
The intolerant, the suppressors, the warmongers and murderers are
among us and deceive the youth of today by telling them that they
are operating in the name of Jezus Christ.
A new pope elected in Rome.
choice of Benedictus 16th (Archbishop Joseph Ratzinger from Munich,

views on pressing human issues.
Secondly it means a clear positioning of the Roman Katholic Church
from its origin, Europe, with the Islam as antipode, and this choice
must give strength to western society. Simili similibus curentur,
as Hahnemann stipulated. Fight conservatism with conservatism.
It was too early for an African pope or South American pope. The next
pope could come from India. That is if Ratzinger holds a long pontificat.
Because such a change needs time.

It was the late Dutch reverend Alje Klamer, who explained what the
meaning of Sodom and Gomorrha actually is.
Sodom en Gomorra are the wealth and abundance that the inhabitants
do not want to share with others whose existence is a daily struggle
Sodom en Gomorra is not being hospitable and not receiving the needed
with open arms. Sodom and Gomorrha are the egoists who pretend that
the others do not exist and forget this phrase: Verily I say unto
you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my
brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Sodom and Gomorra is driving in cars with an extremely high fuel consumption.
It is sitting in the fromt row of the church and at the same time
abandoning people and let them live in cardboard boxes. It is not
wanting to sign the Kyoto Treaty. It is the obstruction of the North-South
Dialogue. It is the denial of knowledge to others so their lives will
not be enriched and cannot be better organized. It is the production
of low quality foods enriched with pesticides. It is the shipping
of many tons of bottled Coca-Cola to the tsunami stricken countries
instead of pure drinking water. Etc., etc.
In the end, Sodom and Gomorrha will be destroyed. He, who does not
want to leave the wealth and abundance, and looks back in yearning
for that luxurious life which was built on the deprivation of others,
the less fortunate, he will perish.
That is a completely different and less convenient Sodom en Gomorra
than what the abstractly discussing and debating exegetes do want
you to believe in.
Should Queen Elisabeth apologize for the severe bombing of Dresden

that their deeds were right.

be that you, as the new commander in chief, had to clean up the mess
in Irak and elsewhere? And that you would have to sacrifice more lives?

Is Kerry the man? He is not the ideal candidate. He lacks assertiveness
and he does not have a clear and affirmative standpoint on many issues,
especially on the issue of Iraq. Yet the Democrats are trying to win
the elections and want Kerry to be the 44th president of the US. They
seem to be too eager to put John Kerry into the White House.
That is really not a good thing to do. The best and clever thing to
do is to give George W. and the Republicans another 4 years so they
can clean up the mess they have created. I do not understand why the
Democrats are so eager to put right what George W. has put wrong.
If the Democrats win the election, they will meet with a lot of difficulty.
Why should they burn their hands by extinguishing the fire that Bush,
Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and Powel deliberately lighted up with
the help of Blair, Straw and Hoon? By winning the election
the Democrats would do the Mighty Group of Five a great favour. Yes,
the world will be less off with Bush and his companions. But the resurrection
of democracy will be the stronger and the better after another 4 years
of misleading the world.

which will be disastrous for the economies of the Western World.

of Iraqis who were killed in the Bush-Blair War on Iraq and offering
his condolences. It is estimated that he will be busy for many weeksif
not months or a year. Jack Straw and Geoff Hoon will
assist him shortly. All three men will have to stand trial in The
Hague, having committed crimes against humanity and probably of ethnic
cleansing. However, extradition will be unlikely. Bush and his companions
cannot be tried too, because before he went to war he announced that
the USA do not recorgnize the court in the Hague.
Are the Republicans planning to quit the White House?
that Rumsfeld announced that he had seen no document about Weapons
of Massdistruction and that there certainly were no links between
Al-Qaeda and Irak, and now that Paul Bremmer said that the US have
made mistakes by going to war, it looks as if the Republican party
wants to rid itself of George Bush. They only can do that by making
John Kerry the winner. Bur Democrats, beware: if the Democrats come
to power and the mess in Iraq is not cleaned up, they will have to
pay for the Republican's mistakes.

When Hillary Clinton visited Europe on the occasion of her book being

The European Concert - Das Europakonzert - Le concert européen,
by Daniël Bärenboim and Sir Simon Rattle.
450 million inhabitants, the new Europe is the world's largest economy,
related to trade and population. This event deserves a memorable concert.
Daniel Barenboim (in his capacity of pianist) and conductor Sir Simon
Rattle must have said to each other "We will make this concert
into something special which will be remembered by its impact."
But the concert was not special at all. In the Concerto for Piano
and Orchestra No. 1 by Johannes Brahms, the tempi were too slow and
therefore the build up of emotion -specifically in the beautiful second
movement- was absent and the whole concert became an artificial affair.
In that respect it was in accord with the enlargement of the European
Union with former Eastblock countries, which is sort of artificial
as well. These new countries are welcomed more for political than
for economic reasons. If Europe does not seize this opportunity to
embrace Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, the three Baltic states
and Hungary at this very moment, another, later chance will probably
not present itself again. Opportunity knocks, so seize it. Although
the new member states are historically speaking European, there is
still too much echo of the fifty years of Soviet reign. And hopefully
that echo will die down before Russia is getting stronger again.

many suspected is confirmed by the "The New Yorker":
the mistreatment of prisoners in the Abu Ghraib Prison in Baghdad
is the US policy to substract information about cells and groups which
are opposed to the occupation of Iraq by America. The magazine states
that this policy rules also in Afghanistan and in other jails in Iraq.
It is systemic and applies also to the suspected abuse in Guantanamo
Bay. The affair is not over yet. Apparently there are more videos,
pictures, details to be published and the disclosure of instructions
that led to the sexual abuse and mental and physical torture. Shock
and awe. The USA place themselves above any international law.
Befehl ist Befehl - An order is an order.
was already reported in January 2004 that many women in Iraq had been
raped by American soldiers. Women, the trofee of war. Winning a war
is expressed in humiliation of the ennemy and denying the fundamental
rights. Guantanamo Bay is the proof. To get results when interrogating,
mental and also physical torture is applied. Also in Baghdad in the
Abu Ghraib prison and in many more prisons. That is not done because
one or two sick soldiers engage in abuse of prisoners. Humiliation
and torture is a tool and the use of it is ordered by officials from
much higher levels.
If a GI refuses to follow that order, his own existence is in danger.
By refusing he will place himself outside the group and he will be
humiliated himself, he will be seen as a softy and will suffer mental
torture himself, maybe even physical abuse.
By refusing he not only endangers his own life, but also the lifes
of his mates and above all of his superiors. That is why only the
critical soldier with a strong notion of what is right or wrong, will
refuse to participate in ill conduct. It is much easier to follow
orders, not only because a soldier has to obey, but because he feels
secure in the group. Abuse and torture cannot be that wrong because
it is an order and everybody is doing it. So he will participate in
humiliation and torturing of the beseiged enemy.
But the secure feeling will disappear as soon as it is reported in
the outside world. Than of course the official statement will be that
just a few soldiers were behaving badly and the trend was not common
practise. The soldiers will be tried. The superiors will not be court
The escalation in Iraq shows that the capture of Saddam Hussein in
December was too early.
long as Saddam Hussein was not captured, the Iraqi's could fear a
possible return or at least some influence. But he was captured in
December 2003 and the coalition forces may well regret that this event
occurred and was so triumphantly announced by Paul Bremmer's well
rehearsed phrase: "We've got him".
Now it seems that the capture of the dictator was too early. It paved
the way for rebellion against the United States and the coalition
partners and strengthened the small groups of rebels in their aim
to start their offiensive which -so it seems- they have been preparing
already for several months.
Although many people in many countries were opposed to the pre-emptive
strike of the USA and Great Britain and still are opposed to the presence
of the USA, Britain and others in Iraq, it is necessary for the coalition
to win the battle.
If they do not, they will not only lose one of the world's largest
oilfields, but they will not deliver what they promised the Iraqi
people which will most certainly not going to live in a democracy.
The defeat of the USA will mean that they gradually will lose their
leading position. It will mean the turning point in the history of
the world: the balance will swing to China and the Muslim world, although
there will be a long period of transgression and adaptation.
Jack Straw vehemently condemned the killing of Hamas leader Yassin.
A bit too vehemently!?
Jack Straw condemned the killing of Hamas leader Yassin, we do not
change our opinion about Jack Straw and Tony Blair at all. The condemnation
by Jack Straw of the action of the Sharon government was a bit too
vehement and therefore suspect, and must be seen in the light of the
Madrid bombings and the threat of attacks in the United Kingdon. We
have reasonable doubt about Jack Straw's sincerety. He is at least
2 years late in changing his opinion as regards to the conflicts in
the entire Middle East (Iraq included).
The bomb attacks in Madrid could be the work of Al Queda.
that would have been said by prime minister Aznar in his televised
speech today, it would mean his acknowledgement that his policy in
going along with George W. concerning the illegal war on Iraq was
wrong. So, it is said that the bomb attacks are the work of ETA, not
of Al Qaida.
When a few hours ago CNN, BBC World and EuroNews were interrupting
their programs and showed what had happened, a first thought was:
a farewell present for Prime Minister Aznar on this 11th of March.
It was not the style of the ETA, because they would give a time warning.
The attack was not in the ETA style because now at four places at
least the bombs went off with the purpose to make as much casualties
as possible. And the political branch of ETA immediately gave a statement
that they were not responsible. It is more and more evident that the
crusade against Iraq left the genie out the bottle. Nor the Bush administration,
neither Tony Blair and Jose Aznar thought about the possibility, let
alone that they would have been prepared for this. They had and have
insufficient knowledge of Islam and the Arab world. And the result?
Iraq an islamic republic a la Iran?
The attack in Bali on 13-102002 was meant for Australia. Casablanca
on May 19 2003 was aimed at Spain. The blast in Istanbul was against
Israel and Turkey. Madrid on March 11th again was because of Spain
taking part in the coalition. The bombing of the worshipping muslims
in Iraq on March 2, 2004 was not done by Al-Quaeda, but could have
been done by those Iraqi who do not want that Iraq becomes an islamic
1-30-2004: Terror alert.
in a while, when George W. Bush is getting behind in the polls, a
terror alert is issued to pump up his statistics, so it seems.
Digital Zoom and Perfect Splice.
to do when a world famous Texan has a wet spot on his trousers?
As soon as it is seen on television just use the digital zoom to keep
the spot outside the frame and respect is no longer in danger.
What to do when a secretary-general is asked an important question
and a secretary of state prevents him from answering and does answer
himself (he has his doubts) and the position of the secretary-general
and the importance of the organisation he heads is not to be discredited?
Just eliminate the word "general" and it sounds as if the
"secretary" of state is asked the question in the first
place. That is what is called a perfect splice.
How truthfull are broadcasters nowadays?
Did the BBC make a mistake?
Hutton was comissioned to investigate into the death of Mr. David
Kelly, not into the functioning of the journalists and radiomakers
of the BBC who stated that "the dossier" on Iraq's weapons
of mass destruction had been sexed up and that the 45 minute claim
made by the Prime Minister was unrealistic. The 45 minute claim was
made by the Prime Minister to coerce the opinion of the public and
of the Labour party.
So, did the BBC make a mistake? Yes. The mistake was that the BBC
apologized and that the director general resigned. Payback time will
come. Don't you worry.
Sexed up? Yes! Sexed up!
time we saw Geoff Hoon, we knew he was lying. When he appeared
in "Question Time" his body language and the way he phrased
his answers, every viewer who had any sense saw that his intentions
were to deceive the public. Even David Dimbleby was of help. When
someone in the audience stated that Saddam Hussein threw the inspectors
out in 1998 because they were spying, Instead of asking a member from
the pannel to anwer to this remark, David Dimbleby announced from
which town "Question Time" in the following week woud be
broadcast and who would be on the pannel.
Each and every time we saw Jack Straw we knew that the 45 minutes
claim and the dossier on the weapons of massdestruction was sexed
up. We all remember when he was treating Dominique de Villepin as
a schoolboy in the meeting at the United Nations.
Each and everytime we saw Tony Blair telling everybody that Saddam
Hussein had WMD and that England could be attacked by Saddam Hussein
within 45 minutes, we knew that he played his role on this side of
the Atlantic according to the strategy set out by Bush and Blair.
Remains the question: Who killed David Kelly? David Kelly...?
Happy New Year
This morning I was preparing breakfast and I could not open the milkpack.
It was completely sealed and glued. It gave me an uncanny feeling.
My immediate thought was: Al Qaeda! Can you imagine?
Happy New Year.
Iraq-Crisis and the Future: Europe without Great Brittain, The UN
without the USA.
Brittain always was a halfhearted member of the European Union and
obstructed many propositions. The USA only adheres significance to
the UN if their plans and proposals are not put into practice. So,
why not change the fate of Great Britain and the USA: move the UN-1
to Paris, Geneva, Berlin or Moscow, and say 'au revoir' to England.
BBC-TV News: Some 80 German manufacturers supplied Iraq with products
BBC newsreader Moira Stewart does not tell the audience is
the number of British and US manufacturers who delivered to Iraq and
the dubious role of both Great Britain and the United States in the
Passages with facts and details are easiliy found on the www. I quote:
'(...) publication of the report into the "arms for Iraq" scandal
revealed what everyone already knew. In defiance of UN guidelines,
Margaret Thatcher's government in the 1980s, and then John Major's
in the 1990s, covertly approved arms sales to Saddam Hussein. These
were used in the Iran-Iraq war, against rebel Kurdish villagers and
to aid Saddam's nuclear program.'
quote: 'The United States military has had to face troops previously
trained by its own military or supplied with U.S. weaponry in Panama,
Iraq, Somalia, Haiti, and now in Afghanistan. Due to the advanced
capabilities these militaries have acquired from past U.S. training
and sales, the U.S. had to invest much more money and manpower in
these conflicts than would have otherwise been needed.' See
Bush and Blair blame Intelligence for their behaviour and decisions.
getting up in the morning and receiving on your desk in the oval office
yet another memo telling you that Saddam Hussein does not have weapons
of massdestruction and again you still do not heave a reason to get
your hands on the wealth of oil which lies in the ground of the Iraqi
people. And imagine that this goes on for years and you still cannot
have it your way. That would make you want to invade Iraq without
willing to wait for the consent of the United Nations. Wouldn't it?
If the weapons of massdestruction cannot be found in Iraq, we will
plant them in the heads of practically every American citizen and
as many people outside the US as possible and we will do our best
to convince the world that these WMD do exist. There are other reasons
why George W. Bush wanted to eliminate the monster the US helped to
create decades earlier, the most important being the domination of
the region, so the fate of Israel would remain in the hands of Ariel
Sharon and the US president.
The UN embargo, which allowed for the production by Iraq of a few
barrels a day, meant that this wealth of oil was inaccessable for
Bush. There was great anoyance. France had contracts with Iraq. And
Iraq threatened to abandone the US Dollar and switch to the Euro for
payment of the oil.
Bush could not invade Iraq all by himself and because the UN does
not participate in an illegal action, he needed to find an accomplish
and that is when Tony Blair presented himself.
In order to be able to support Bush, Blair had to be seperated from
the rest of Europe. That could be done very easily because prime minister
Blair had aspirations and wanted to be a great leader of a great nation,
nearly on par with George W. and his United States and so his place
in history would be secured.
Blair became Bush's best allie. Together they concocted a plan and
got José María Aznar from Spain and Silvio
Berlusconi from Italy on their sides.
Not only China is getting more and more a threat to the leading role
and the position of the US, Europe too is to be reckoned with. It
is the second largest economy in the world and is growing in strength
and gradually coming to that position which General de Gaulle had
in mind in the nineteen sixties. Blair of course can be of great help
and England can easily be persuaded because Brittain has always halfheartedly
engaged in the European Union. So Bush first conquered part of Europe
and undermined the position of the European Union. The rest of Europe
(the "continent", as the British say), especially France
(Dominique Villepin), Germany (Joschka Fischer) and Belgium, did not
like this at all and did oppose the intentions of the illustre quartet
Bush, Blair, Berlusconi and Aznar.
Also Russia did not agree with the invasion because of their ties
with Iraq and the oil trade which was at stake. That is why Condoleezza
Rice had to fly to Moscow to appease Vladimir Putin and to make some
promises for after the war.
To add to the pressure on the UN and in order to get other countries
allied, or just fool them, Blair presented the famous "Dossier"
containing the claim that Iraq had bought uranium in Nigeria. Furthermore
Blair stated that Saddam Hussein could activate his WMD and would
mean a danger to England as well. That was a mistake. How for heaven's
sake can Saddam Hussein be a threat to England? The 45 minutes claim
did not frighten "old Europe" which still was opposed to
the war at that very instance. Old Europe thought that the weapons
inspectors needed more time, at least another 4 to 6 months for their
investigation in Iraq.
But Bush and Blair did not want to waste time. Jack Straw came to
the UN and delivered an intimidating speech while treating France's
Secretary of State Dominique Villepin as a little schoolboy and told
the Assembly more about the eagerness of England to go to war than
about the real existence of weapons of mass destruction. Colin Powell
had the task to read a text containing the so called dangers and illustrated
the assessments with images of Iraq's installations and production
sites, images which could have been fabricated on a personel computer
by any 14 year old. Nevertheless you could see that Powell did not
believe much of what he said. What he thought and what the world would
think did not matter though.
and Blair were determined to invade Iraq and went along with their
plan, even after Iraq had delivered on the 8th of December 2002 nearly
12.000 pages of information and 12 CD-Roms describing all the plans
and the eventual existence of atomic, biological and chemical weapons.
Although the documents were asked for and Iraq delivered them one
day before the deadline, the US obviously had not counted with this
prompt delivery of the documents and the CD-Roms on time. That is
why not all documents were handed over to the UN. Part was kept by
the US and was not accessible for UN officials and the weapon inspectors.
This clever move by the US administration made it impossible for other
nations to get to the truth and they kept wondering and guessing how
dangerous Saddam Hussein was. What did these documents contain? The
rest of the wolrd could only speculate about the seriousness of the
existence of WMD and the 45 minutes claim.
And so the USA and England had played their game very well and invaded
Many countries did not oppose an invasion in Iraq in order to topple
Saddam Hussein, but first wanted the legality be proven. Many people
saw through Bush's and Blair's hoax. But it is only now that politicians
in the US and England are waking up. Is there a way out of this predicament?
Now Bush as well as Blair are trying to blame their respective intelligence
services for providing false facts, evidence and assessments on the
basis of which they went to war. They tell the world that they must
have been conned, whereas in reality Blair is a conman which is illustrated
by appointing Hutton, a biased judge. Bush is a conman too as is illustrated
once again by the fact that the report of the investigation he comissioned
on the mis-intelligence will be delivered in 2005 after the coming
elections in the US in November 2004. They are the conmen who have
conned the world and still try to con.
But the game is not over yet. There is a great chance that they will
be defeated. By the Iraqi people which can make the military forces
flee the country more or less under the same circumstances of 1922
when England had to flee Iraq because they never made an effort to
understand these people. And defeated by the public opinion in the
US as more and more soldiers die in Iraq.
Yes, it is a good thing that Saddam Hussein's regime has fallen. Nobody
denies that. But blaming the intelligence agencis is not very intelligent.
It shows that Bush and Blair have been fooled. That already is a reason
to not reelect these unintelligent leaders.
There are more dictatorial regimes that have to be tackled. What about
Mugabe? What about destroying the heroine maffia and bringing freedom
to the people in Columbia? But Mugabe, Columbia, and others are not
of interest to George W.
Yes, the fall of Saddam Hussein can mean a big step forward in the
development and the prosperity of the Middle-East. But was this the
right and legal way to bring that change for the better about when
many thousends of Iraqis had to die?
What many people want is a trial of Bush and Blair and a conviction
of these two and their allies because they placed themselves above
the United Nations, and because their action was illegal. (The US
and British administrations are well aware of the aspect of illegality.
This is proven by the fact that Saddam Hussein is declared prisonor
of war and not a war criminal.) And then there is the growing disbelieve
in the Report of the Hutton Inquiry which made Greg Dyke resign from
There are exciting times ahead.
"Trümmermänner" in Iraq?
the Worldwar 2 in Germany, in all cities, women were clearing streets
and squares and cleaning bricks to be used for the rebuilding of houses,
streets and monuments. They were called Trümmerfrauen (debris
women). The chaos in Iraq is first of all a result of the severe bombarding
by the coalition troops. Secondly: the former state economy has to
be reformed into capitalist economy. The danger is apparent. Most
Iraqi men have no job and if they can work for a few hours they earn
a fraction of what they were used to. If the West is serious about
rebuilding Iraq why not give every man a job as "Trümmermann"
payed by the West. He would contribute to the new Iraq, he would earn
a living, and the activity of the workforce would regulate Iraq's
social and economic life, and speed up te recovery of the country.
But such an idea does not agree with the American policy of "laissez
faire, laisser aller".
The Selfdestruction of Israel
under Ariel Sharon is leading towards its selfdestruction if there
is no change in the Israeli government and the pursuit of a new policy
towards cooperation. But it is doubtful if there is still a chance
From the onsett the roadmap to peace was a fake, a smokescreen and
of course did not bring the expected change. Moving one caravan by
the Israeli setllers was not enough. While Hamas accepted and announced
a truth, Israel continued to retaliate into the extreme which forced
the Palestinians to lose their good will.
Now that Israel has announced that it will send Yasser Arafat into
exile or even will dispose of him in some other way, it is natural
that the Palestinians announced to kill Ariel Sharon.
It is inconceivable that the Israeli people still support Ariel Sharon's
government. If my children had been killed by a suicidebomber I would
have asked the government for a change in policy.
Israel's economy is in complete peril. That fact alone would be reason
enough to strive for peace.
It looks as if Israel is not on a roadmap to peace but is isolating
itself and is more than ever on the road to selfdestruction.
Bush and Blair announce that they will back the foundation of a Palestinian
Mr. Bush, you are two and a half years late. You and your administration
were one of the important factors for not stopping the conflict. Tactics
in politics can be very well needed and be very usefull. But tactics
over the thousands of dead bodies of Israeli and Palestinian civilians
and the destruction of homes, families and a believe in a better future
cannot be the tactics from a real Christian as you consider yourself.
Your so-called Christian Faith is not sincere at all and not in accordance
with the words of Jesus Christ. You should remember these words: Whatever
you have done unto your neighboor, you have done unto me.
Iraq-Crisis: Europe Is Growing Up.
W. Bush's twinkle in the eye when he declared that time was running
out for Saddam Hussein, was not at all an indication of the graveness
of war. The twinkle was apparently also premature. Unexpected was
the unwillingness of Belgium, France and Germany to decide to send
patriot missiles to Turkey four days before the final meeting of the
UN Security Councel on Friday February 14th. A decision could as well
be taken right after the meeting of the UN.
What is the prblem? Europe has always been the valet of the USA. Charles
de Gaulle was for a independant Europe and since that was not feasable
he made France quit for the military part and kicked the USA and Nato
out of Paris and Fontainebleau. Nato moved its European headquarters
to Evere near Brussels.
The relations within Nato had since been more or less ideal. But the
lack of diplomacy on the US-side by both Bush jr. and Rumsfeld, and
the threat of executing the pre-emptive strike on Iraq just with Great
Britain and without the alliance, has caused quite some irritation.
France positions itself within Europe against Great Britain. The refusal
of Germany to send German troops into Irak is against the German constitution.
Germany only can take part in an attack if the Constitution is amended
to that effect. And in Belgium elections are at hand.
The argument that the USA liberated Germany in 1945 and established
there democracy is false. If you have been helped by a someone who
became your friend you may be thankful. But does this mean that more
than 50 years later you have to swallow the poison fed to you by this
friend? On top of this: the USA was a different country in 1945.
What this all show is that Europe after the introduction of the Euro
is finally getting stronger and does not accept the uncalculable risks
and dangers of a war against Iraq which already had been decided at
the end of 2001.
George W. and Tony Blair can only be winners if the war is a short
affair and does not provoke the explosion of the various conflicts
that are simmering all over the globe. In all other cases they loose.
Joschka Fischer was not invited in the White House. The
German position on the War on Iraq: Only with a mandate of the United
Germany will not supply troops to fight on Iraqi soil.
This position was not appreciated at all by the US administration.
To accentuate the dismay, Secretary Rumsfeld resorted to high school
behaviour, some gigling which accompanied ridiculing remarks when
addressing German's Secretary of Defense Dr. Peter Struck.
The firm remarks of Mrs. Daubler-Meglin that politicians and heads
of state often use a problem outside of their country to distract
from the attention on problems at home, should be seen as a rightful
Today it seems that the US wants to wait for some results of the inspectors
who will go to Iraq. If the German Secretary of State Joschka Fischer
had been invited by Bush at the White House, this could be misinterpreted
that the decision was influenced by Fischer and the German position.

New York Students fear FBI.
ZDF-TV correspondant Udo van Campen reports
on December 6: university-students from New York fear that the FBI
is tapping their phones and reading their e-mails. Anyone who
critizes the government seems to be against America's interestests.
Many Americans (and Brits) are misinformed about the real reasons
and arguments. Most are probably not interested as Mihael Moore said.
Most do not even know where Iraq is.
The Iraqi government delivers nearly 12.000 pages of information and
12 CD-ROMs describing all the plans and the eventual existence of

rest of the world can only speculate about the seriousness of the

In the USA and Great Britain are supplying information about their

a broadcast on BBC televison of December 5, 2002, Ruby Wax
invites journalist John Simpson and filmmaker Michael Moore.
The object is to talk about the pending war on Iraq. Reactions from
the audience show that most people have digested the propaganda and
are ready for the war. Michael Moore clearly states that it is not
about weapons of mass distruction of Iraq, but the 'weapons of mass
distraction' of George Bush's administration and his companion Tony
Blair. In Ruby's show however the Iraq question is hardly discussed.
It is the same BBC-policy which is followed by David Dimbleby in 'Question
Time'. When a man in the audience reports that he watched 'Breakfast
with Frost' and heard that the Americans had a secret agenda in 1998
to torpedo the inspections in order to find a reason to attack, Dimbleby
simply states that this is an interesting remark and goes on to mention
the details of where the next 'Question Time' will be broadcast from.
