more powerful than a death cult and all its weapons

UPDATED with The Stuxnet Worm and Fukushima, from Aangirfan.




Death Cult at work.

^^^^^^^

We came across an old documentary about HAARP called Holes in Heaven. It contains a lot of good information as well as one stunning example of a person who checked his conscience at the door, if he ever had a conscience to start with. Several other people go on about the interconnected nature of the earth's electrical system, of all living creatures, of the planet as a whole. We agree though we have no scientific way of stating or proving such a thing. It just seems obvious to us. Some of the people in the documentary seem very naive when they express their concerns that the people doing HAARP must not know that everything is connected, otherwise they would take care not to do such dangerous experiments. Surely the people (social engineers) who got HAARP going *did* know the potential to control people through the earth's electromagnetic field, and controlling people was as much a military goal as protecting satellite communications blah blah blah.

In another documentary about Chernobyl found at Adored by Hordes, you can watch Gorbachev scarcely containing his glee as he reflects on the disaster. Watch his facial expressions as he says this, for example (link will open to the spot):


"Cherbitsky, the First Secretary of the Ukraine, also went to the festivities with his family and his grandchildren. It's true that in theory, it seemed very important to us... to avoid any panic. But had we known how much radioactivity was already in the air, how many had been contaminated during the festivities...."
The Parade of Death, 1986. People blithely going about May Day celebrations six days after Chernobyl, encouraged by the authorities despite radiation levels several thousand times normal, in areas known to be contaminated.  Cherbitsky was there with his family and grandchildren, as Gorbachev notes, smiling. Cherbitsky later committed suicide. (Subtitles of the documentary can be found here.)


You have to wonder, why does Gorbachev smile so much while retelling this story? Is there something AMUSING about this disaster that has killed an estimated one million people, while only 4,000 got officially counted, and by the way the whole thing happened on his watch?

Death cult.

Getting back to HAARP...was the Japan earthquake a natural event? We don't know. We tend to think probably not, but no we can't whip the proof out of our purse.

The documentary linked above is useful because it's so old. There was not so much to be covered up. People spoke freely.

"The ionosphere of the earth has got enormous amounts of energy. There are 8000 thunderstorms going on all over the earth at any given moment, there are millions of amperes of electricity pouring to the earth from lightning strikes, and HAARP could create a trigger effect." ~ Dr. Patrick Flanagan, Electromagnetic Specialist

Starting around minute 5:00:

"In 1983 I did radiotomography with 30 watts, looking for oil in the ground. I found 26 oil wells over a nine state area, and 100% of the time was accurate, which is 30 watts of power beaming straight into the solid rock. HAARP uses a billion watts beamed straight into the ionosphere for experiments. Picture these strings on the piano as layers of earth. Each one has its own frequency. What we used to do is beam radio waves into the ground, and it would vibrate any strings that were present in the ground. We might get the sound back like [sound], and we would say, 'that's natural gas.' We might get a sound back like [sound], and we would say 'that's crude oil.' We were able to identify each frequency. We accomplished this with just 30 watts of radio power. If you do this with a billion watts, the vibrations are so violent, that the entire piano would shake, in fact the whole house would shake, in fact the vibrations could be so severe underground that it could even cause an earthquake." ~ Brooks Agnew, Earth Tornographer

This week a Pakistani columnist, Nusrat Mirza, wrote an interesting piece in Urdu. MEMRI immediately hopped on it, and we mean all over it. Looks like they want to be out ahead of this news. You can read the piece here.

“Whenever the U.S. Spaceplane X-37B is Sent Into Space – A Natural Disaster Occurs Somewhere in the World”
Death cult.




"Manami Kon, 4, waits for her parents and younger sister who are still missing after the tsunami in Miyako."


How many lives shattered? How many more? 


What have we got to go against all this death and destruction? Anyone? Anyone got anything?

OK would you be willing to try this?


To All People Around the World,

Please send your prayers of love and gratitude to water at the nuclear plants in Fukushima, Japan.

By the massive earthquakes of Magnitude 9 and surreal massive tsunamis, more than 10,000 people are still missing. It has been 16 days already since the disaster happened. What makes it worse is that water at the reactors of Fukushima Nuclear Plants started to
leak, and it's contaminating the ocean, air and water molecules of the surrounding areas.

Human wisdom has not been able to do much to solve the problem, but we are only trying to cool down the anger of radioactive materials in the reactors by discharging water to them.

Is there really nothing else to do?

I think there is. During over twenty year research of hado measuring and water crystal photographic technology, I have been witnessing that water can turn positive when
it receives pure vibration of human prayer no matter how far away it is.

The energy formula of Albert Einstein, E=MC2 really means that Energy = number of people and the square of people's consciousness.

Now is the time to understand the true meaning. Let us all join the prayer ceremony as fellow citizens of the planet earth.

I would like to ask all people, not just in Japan, but all around the world to please help us to find a way out the crisis of this planet.

The prayer procedure is as follows...

Name of ceremony: "Let's send our thoughts of love and gratitude to all water
in the nuclear plants in Fukushima"

Day and Time:
March 31st, 2011 (Thursday)
12:00 noon in each time zone

Please say the following phrase:
"The water of Fukushima Nuclear Plant, we are sorry to make you suffer. Please forgive us. We thank you, and we love you." Please say it aloud or in your mind.

Repeat it three times as you put your hands together in a prayer position. Please offer your sincere prayer.

Thank you!



We're in.

plutonium primer

UPDATED with video from Picasso Dreams (scroll down) and Little Mr. Pluto (thanks A13).






Nuclear mascots of Japan: Little Mr. Pluto.
"But an animated video used in educational materials included a widely criticized scene showing Little Mr. PU shaking hands with a boy who safely downs a plutonium-tainted beverage to make the debatable point the substance would pass through a body without doing harm." 
http://blogs.wsj.com/japanrealtime/2011/03/29/the-lighter-side-of-plutonium/


We have entered the auto-didactic age. Today we offer a quick lesson on Plutonium. Plutonium is a very dangerous radioactive material that some smart scientists discovered in 1941. Breathing in Plutonium particles is not advised. One of the brilliant scientists tragically died from cancer in his early forties.




Plutonium explainer

Officials have detected plutonium in multiple locations around Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear facility. Tokyo Electric Power Co. said in a statement that the plutonium was discovered Monday in five locations around the plant.

...Safety officials say the amount of plutonium found does not pose a risk to humans, but critics say the finding supports suspicions that dangerously radioactive water is leaking from damaged nuclear fuel rods.

Does not post a risk to humans? Any amount of plutonium poses a risk to humans.

"Safety officials" have ZERO credibility. The people working the plant are called "SUICIDE TEAMS."

The radioactive core in one reactor at Fukushima's beleaguered nuclear power plant appeared to have melted through the bottom of its containment vessel, an expert warned yesterday, sparking fears that workers would not be able to save the reactor and that radioactive gases could soon be released into the atmosphere.  ...The damning analysis came as it emerged that workers at Japan's stricken nuclear plant are reportedly being offered huge sums to brave high radiation in an attempt to bring its overheated reactors under control.
Back to the explainer:

What is plutonium?
Plutonium is a silvery-grey, radioactive metal. Its chemical symbol is Pu and its atomic number is 94. It was discovered in 1941 by Glenn Seaborg, Edwin McMillan, Joseph Kennedy, and Arthur Wahl.
Plutonium is man-made, and is created from uranium in nuclear reactors.
There are 16 isotopes of plutonium, having mass numbers ranging from 232 to 247. Plutonium-239 is the isotope used in nuclear weapons and nuclear reactors.
Plutonium-239 is used in nuclear weapons because it is among the few materials whose atoms can be split to create a nuclear explosion. When Plutonium-239 atoms are split (or “fissioned”) massive amounts of energy are instantly released.
Approximately 110 tonnes of Plutonium-239 are generated each year in nuclear power plants across the globe.
Plutonium’s half-life
Plutonium remains radioactive for very long time. It decays by releasing small amounts of energy over time. The radioactivity level of an isotope is determined by its half-life, or the amount of time it takes for half of the original quantity of the isotope to decay. Plutonium-239 has a half-life of 24,100 years.
Plutonium risks
Because plutonium is radioactive, it is difficult to handle and store. Plutonium reacts with carbon, halogens, nitrogen and silicon. When exposed to air, plutonium gets very hot and can spontaneously ignite. Because plutonium easily fissions, it cannot be stored in large quantities. Storing more than a few pounds of plutonium in close proximity to each other could cause a nuclear chain reaction that ends in large amounts of radiation to be released into the atmosphere.
When plutonium remains outside of the human body, it generally does not pose a health risk. However, when inside the human body plutonium is toxic and can damage living tissue, cause radiation sickness and cancer.
The most common ways plutonium enters the body is through inhaling contaminated air, or ingesting contaminated food or water. Exposure to plutonium through inhalation poses a much bigger health risk than when ingested.
Plutonium is not easily digested by the stomach, therefore when plutonium is ingested it is generally passed out of the body.
However, when plutonium particles are inhaled they can become lodged in lung tissue and continue to give off radiation internally for years. The particles can also enter the bloodstream and travel to the liver, bone or bone marrow. If plutonium particles reach internal organs they can remain there for decades, continually damaging the surrounding tissue.
Being one of the heavier elements, plutonium isn't able to travel as far through the air, meaning dangerous plutonium particles are unlikely to reach Canada's coast.

Answer: If you breathe A PLUTONIUM PARTICLE in, it will destroy you from the inside. The plutonium particles are INVISIBLE. Good luck!

Also, let's note that Plutonium is man-made and:
"Essentially all the plutonium on earth has been created within the past six decades by human activities involving fissionable materials."
Great! We love science.

time for a new civil rights movement?



Here's your "GLOBAL PUBLIC SQUARE." Five Jews discussing The New World Order on CNN.

http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1103/27/fzgps.01.html

The New World Order; What's Next for the Middle East?

Aired March 27, 2011 - 10:00   ET, on CNN



GLORIA BORGER, GUEST HOST: This is GPS, THE GLOBAL PUBLIC SQUARE. Welcome to all of you in the United States and those joining us from around the world. I'm Gloria Borger. 




"Gloria Anne Borger, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Borger of New Rochelle, N. Y., and Lance Morgan, son of Mr. and Mrs. George J. Morgan of New York, were married yesterday afternoon in the Beth-El Synagogue in New Rochelle by Rabbi Philip Weinberger."

Fareed is off this week, but you'll see his conversation with Malcolm Gladwell later in the broadcast.

Meantime, the topic at hand today, Libya. Was action the right choice for coalition nations? What happens if a no-fly zone succeeds and Gadhafi stays in power? And who sets the mission for NATO?

The conversation starts right now.

Let's get straight to our panel. Richard Haass is the president of the Council on Foreign Relations.






"Yesterday one of my many moles inside the Council on Foreign Relations sent me the 2008 annual report. Beautiful cover. Rocks my world. You flip the book open and you see Jewish names. You see Larry Summers and Robert Rubin, who were just on stage with Obama,  in a picture together, see Leslie Gelb's name, see Richard Haass, CFR President, who is Jewish." Mondoweiss: Let's Don't Be Naive (About Obama and the Jewish Establishment) 11/7/08








John Negroponte is the vice chairman of McLarty Associates and also the former U.S. ambassador to Iraq and former director of National Intelligence. 














Mr. Negroponte is Greek-American diplomat. He is currently leading the diplomatic war against the people of Iraq as the U.S. envoy at the United Nations (UN) in New York. Negroponte is Jewish. A friend in Spain expressed his deep concern to me recently: " to appoint a Jew as ambassador to the Arab country that has been devastated because of the will of a cabal of Jewish neocons headed by Wolfowitz ­ Bush is just an accessory -, is like trying to put off a fire using buckets of gasoline". Counterpunch: Ghali Hassan: Who is John Negroponte, 6/4/04


Robert Kagan is a senior fellow with the Brookings Institution. 























And Jane Harman is a former Democratic congresswoman from California who chaired the Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence, and she is now the new president and CEO of the Woodrow Wilson Center. 
















"Jane Harman's Jewish. There, I just said it. That's why we have the blogosphere."



What if CNN had a panel of five prominent Muslims discussing US FOREIGN POLICY IN THE MIDDLE EAST? Would anyone notice? Would anyone have a problem with that, with the BIAS?

some possible damage

Smoke: Fresh safety concerns arose today as black smoke was spotted emerging from Unit 3 of the plant, prompting a temporary evacuation of all workers from the complex.


"Five are believed to have already died and 15 are injured while others have said they know the radiation will kill them. The original 50 brave souls were later joined by 150 colleagues and rotated in teams to limit their exposure to the radiation spewing from over-heating spent fuel rods after a series of explosions at the site. They were today joined by scores more workers." Daily Mail, 3/24/11


Reuters graphic from Dail Mail story, click to enlarge.

The problem with handling radiation is its invisibility. You really can’t tell you are being killed until it is years too late! You can't run from it easily, hide from it unless you wear lead suits and you can’t smell it, either....Experts warned us that the #3 reactor was the most dangerous. The black smoking ruin here is what little is left of this reactor. This is the MOV one which was being refitted with plutonium. Wow. Isn’t this hideous? It looks like…Chernobyl! And it is. Totally Chernobyl. Each day, each reactor looks more and more ruined, more and more desolate. They look like a fast forward film of slow organic destruction over centuries only this is over days. With water being pumped in as fast as possible, they continue to devolve and collapse, the plutonium one, rather thoroughly and fastest of all. Just three days ago, it had this stream of steam coming out of just one small hole. Now, it is twisted wreckage. This was no ‘explosion’ but rather, the natural evolution of plutonium as it has a meltdown. ...
Not exploding but simply pouring out that invisible force that acts so energetically on our genes. Here is a story I can’t vouch for but it does show the uncertainty factor of trying to quantify what is going on when we have a full blown nuclear fire/meltdown/catastrophe: Fukushima Now 72,000 Times Hiroshima Radiation
Dr. Chris Busby verified today in an email that three spent fuel pools are totally blasted away and burned up. That puts the approximate radiation levels at 24,000 HIROSHIMAS x 3 = 72,000 times the radiation of Hiroshima now in the atmosphere..
Things are most definitely not under control. It's a meltdown, it's been a meltdown, and the radiation is going all over the place.

Into the ocean, into the air, into the food supply, into human beings, into animals, and across the planet.

Look at the picture of reactor three published two days ago. It's a smouldering, melting heap of metal. Does that look like something that can be rewired or repiped to you?

Radioactivity levels spike in seawater at nuclear plant, 3/27/11


He initially said the high radiation reading inside reactor No. 3, where the workers were injured, could indicate damage to the reactor. He later said it could be from venting operations to release pressure or water leakage from pipes or valves. “There is no data suggesting a crack,” Nishiyama said. “Reactor No. 3 is the only one of the six that uses a fuel mixture of plutonium and uranium. Plutonium is the most deadly radioactive isotope.”
OK maybe we are missing something here. There could be some indications of damage. Let's have a look at that picture again, Reactor THREE -- it's the MELTED one:


Yes, we think there could be some damage there to the pipes or valves, maybe even a crack or two.

"Japan’s government said the nuclear crisis at a quake-damaged power plant isn’t getting worse as radiation levels rise in sea water used to cool over-heating fuel rods....The nuclear agency said it doesn’t believe there is a physical crack in the pressure or containment vessels, which surround the core of the No. 3 reactor. Leakage may be coming from pipes connected to the reactor." Radiation levels rise at Fukushima as government says situation is stable, 3/26/11

Brief tutorial on radioactive particles:




^^^^^^^

Japanese treated for radiation in China: Two Japanese travellers have been hospitalised in China with "severe" radiation levels after they arrived on a commercial airliner from Tokyo, China's safety watchdog said. 3/25/11

They may have ingested a particle or two...?

Also...

Tiny radioactive particles from Japan found in Iceland, 3/23/11

"The pollution was carried across North-America and across the Atlantic Ocean. The particles are tiny and not considered to be dangerous to people’s health, Fr├ęttabladid reports." 
The particles are tiny?!? NO SHIT. Actually, they're invisible radioactive ATOMIC particles. Did you not see them floating across North America on the way to Iceland?



Don't worry. They're tiny. The dangerous radioactive particles you would definitely notice.

'No risk' as Fukushima fallout hits Europe, 3/25/11

MINUSCULE particles of fallout from the crippled nuclear power plant in Japan have reached Iceland and are expected in France and elsewhere in Europe.

Tiny, miniscule, whatever. Not to worry.You will easily be able to avoid the dangerous particles.


Traces of Japanese radiation detected in Newfoundland, 3/23/11

More US states find traces of radiation from Japan: Colorado, Oregon, Washington, California, Hawaii. Since the miniscule, tiny radioactive particles DISPERSE IN THE AIR, they are not considered a danger after they travel far away, because the less dangerous ones will decay, and the really bad ones that hang around for hundreds or thousands of years will be far away from the source. Thus if you do, regrettably, inhale or eat an invisible radioactive particle and die, no one will ever know why. Win win, also known as getting away with murder. How do you think the authorities have maintained that Chernobyl killed "only" 4,000 people, when the data indicates a true number closer to one million?


Therefore, we don't see how spreading them all over the place really helps. If the nuclear CONTAINMENT building explodes, or melts, how is it a good thing for the radioactive particles to DISPERSE? Contain and disperse are antonyms. They can't both be good. But apparently, now that the plant has melted down, the dispersing radiation is a GOOD THING, kind of like how instead of cleaning up and containing all that oil in the Gulf, the authorities dumped millions of gallons of toxic Corexit to DISPERSE the oil into tiny submerged droplets forming enormous life-sucking oxygen-depleted impossible-to-clean-up kill zones in the ocean.

Because for -paths, if you can't SEE THE PROBLEM, it simply doesn't exist.

Plus, the miniscule particles wash out in the rain, and it rained and rained and rained on the West Coast in the past week or so, conveniently washing all those pesky radiation particles down to earth.

3/20 (4:15pm): Rain water results show trace levels of radioactive iodine (I131,I132), cesium (Cs134, Cs137), and tellurium (Te132). The amounts show that the activity we are observing originated from any of the three operating reactors that was shut down since I-131 and Te132 half-lives are less than 10 days and the spent fuel from unit 4 had not operated for > 130 days. The calculated exposure to the public is so low that the consuming of ~500 liters of this water would only increase dose by the same amount received by taking a cross-country airplane flight.
Etc.

More specifically, we measure gamma rays and their energies in our detector, which provides a unique fingerprint of a specific radioisotope.

Well that's great that the UC Berkeley Department of Engineering measures the gamma rays. But according to the tutorial video above, you still would want to avoid the actual invisible radioactive atomic particles themselves. Those can be very dangerous when ingested.

"There is a cause for concern. As we have already said, it is more than likely (in fact quite certain) that Plutonium and Uranium are part of the fallout mix. If the gamma signal goes above background you have to assume there are particles floating about that you definitely do not want inside your body. The problem with alpha-emitting particles is that although the range of their radioactive decays is very short, they are immensely destructive, killing cells and potentially mutating the DNA of cells which survive. The standard ICRP model of radiation risk takes an average of the energy of those decays as if it were distributed across large volumes of tissue and concludes that the risk is low. This is as stupid as believing that because it's safe to warm yourself by the fire it's equally safe to absorb the same amount of heat by eating a red-hot ball bearing." Alpha Emitters, Geiger Counters

Also, by the way, *some* of the EPA monitors measuring are not working properly.

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- The EPA has reported that at least eight of 18 air monitors along the West Coast are "undergoing quality review."

According to a statement on their website, the monitors in California, Oregon and Washington were set up after nuclear fears spread across Japan and are listed by the EPA as being in review for reporting an abnormal reading.

Scientists must now evaluate the readings, which indicate that the monitor may not be working properly or merely measured a spike in radiation levels due to environmental change.
...Last week many people were fooled by an official-looking email that was sent out, claiming radioactive particles could mix in with the recent rainfall.

The hoax email appeared to be sent from the L.A. County Fire Department, and said the acid-like rain could cause burns or even cancer.

Firefighters say the email is completely fake.


Sure.

the pattern of killing and getting away with it - updated

UPDATE: Penny notes more lies about Fukushima and especially the appearance of a NEUTRON BEAM observed 13 times on the premises.

TEPCO, the operator of the nuclear plant, said the neutron beam measured about 1.5 kilometers southwest of the plant's No. 1 and 2 reactors over three days from March 13 and is equivalent to 0.01 to 0.02 microsieverts per hour and that this is not a dangerous level.
The utility firm said it will measure uranium and plutonium, which could emit a neutron beam, as well.
So, it's not a dangerous level sort of problem to have neutron beams shooting into the sky (????) but they're gonna start measuring.

Jesus God.



Video from There Are No Sunglasses.

^^^^^^^

In passing we note that Defense Secretary Gates reassures Egypt that the violence in Libya will not cross over the border, while the US and "allies" struggle to maintain Arab support for this war amid dissolving pledges of military aid, shifting public opinion, and well-founded fears that Libya will turn into another Iraq.

On Wednesday, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates arrived in Cairo to reassure Egyptian officials that the fighting and instability in Libya would not spill over the border, U.S. officials said.
Gates then arrived in Israel to talk about the "peace" "process," and such timing, arriving as he did hot on the heels of a "terrorist" attack in Jerusalem that miraculously killed only one British tourist and ZERO Israelis. Lucky.
Authorities said a British tourist died and more than 50 other people were wounded in the blast near Jerusalem's central bus station as the evening rush hour began.
As Israeli officials probed the attack, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates paid a visit there Thursday. Gates came to Israel after a trip to Egypt and was planning to meet with his Israeli counterpart, Ehud Barak, as well as Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
None of this should be a surprise to readers here.

Libya is surrounded by countries populated by Muslims. Libya will become the new Afghanistan. It will be used to de-stabilise all the countries surrounding it, including and especially Egypt.


Egypt escaped it's fate of being invaded by Israel some weeks ago when the protesters refused to become violent which would have enticed Egypt's military to massively repress them creating the environment for invasion from Israel under the excuse of Israel needing to protect itself.

But there's more than one way to skin a cat. So the attack is now going to come from the western flank through Libya in the form of 'terrorists' and drone attacks (just as in Pakistan) instead of directly across the Sinai from Israel. Libya will be effectively broken up into tribal areas ruled by compliant tribal leaders just as in Afghanistan. This is the 'Balkanisation' strategy in action.

ALL OF THIS PALING in comparison to the nuclear disaster unfolding...

i n v i s i b l y.

^^^^^^^

We'll take a stab at it. We went away from March 15 through March 22 and enjoyed God's beautiful creation, beautiful beyond measure.


And now we have work to do, because God did not make this planet for the express purpose of psychopaths and sociopaths (henceforth simply -paths) to destroy it, which is what they are attempting to do and we will give them an A+ FOR EFFORT.

The first thing to remember about -paths is that they express power by killing and getting away with it.

It's not JUST the killing, it's the GETTING AWAY with it that gives them deep satisfaction. Thus there is a pattern to their work.


The evil are patient. Evil people in positions of power have many tools at their disposal to murder people. But they still have to do lots of planning and be patient in order to get away with it.

Work slowly.
Start and stop.
Small doses.
It doesn't matter who dies as long as people die.
Express regret.
Repeat.

^^^^^^^

If you take this sort of thinking, this type of understanding, and apply it to what is happening in the world, you can begin to grasp the scope of the evil around us. If you understand the sorts of things kept secret, such as technologies and agreements, even if you don't know the specific things themselves, you can begin to grasp what is going on, realizing that evil people would like to kill as many people as possible, and get away with it.
They have been succeeding.

Are many people dying around the world from intractable wars, illegal drugs, corporate malfeasance, street violence, hunger, disasters, accidents, terrorism? Yes.

Has anyone of consequence been held accountable? No.

That does not happen by accident. That takes planning. That takes secret technologies. That takes media ownership and message discipline. That takes wars and armies. That takes poison. That takes a lot of unfortunate "human errors" and "accidents" and "incompetence" and "Acts of God."
You don't have to be an expert to see the pattern. You just have to be willing to see it, and to interpret it correctly. This requires an understanding of -paths that many people can't quite bring themselves to accept. While these people mentally resist the truth, the pattern repeats over and over again. We are all literally trapped -- not by the -paths even, but by the ordinary people, the well-intentioned but foolish empaths, who refuse to understand the truth because it is too upsetting to their world views, whatever they may be. These people unwittingly create a space of denial from which the -paths abuse us all.
 
The controlled media enforces this space.... for now. Let's see if some of the correspondents break rank when they realize they've been exposed to something serious.

^^^^^^^

The events in Japan fit the pattern, seems to us.

1. We have an "Act of God," a hundred year earthquake and tsunami. Except it's only been SIX years since the last hundred year earthquake and tsunami "Act of God."

2. In addition to the "Act of God," we have a plethora of human error, incompetence, and accidents in play as well. Much of this has been pulled together by Keith Harmon Snow. (link fixed)


3. We have an invisible poison now released into the atmosphere, which will cause untold, indiscriminate suffering and death by the slow-kill method, much preferred by -paths.

4. We have a controlled media telling us not to worry, in marked contrast to the fear-mongering they engaged in with the *last* invisible menace -- the Swine Flu.

5. We have no way of knowing where these deadly radioactive particles are, nor do we have any way of holding anyone accountable for all of this destruction and death.



Essentially, this is another X Wars narrative. Remember the BP Disaster?

See: disaster of biblical proportions
See: death spiral


Human Error + Mother Nature = Disaster of Biblical Proportions
If you are a death cult, you like death. You like situations that cause death or threaten death, the bigger the better. But you would also like to get away with it. So it has to be an accident, and it has to be poorly managed, and it has to involve mother nature.
  

Check.

Also see: myth-making to read about some of the witnesses to the BP Disaster.


We note the presence of ten German technicians from Areva at the Fukushima plant, all of whom fled immediately and got away safely.

Ten German employees of nuclear giant Areva were conducting maintenance work at Japan's Fukushima plant during Friday's massive earthquake, according to a Sunday report. A company spokesman said the men immediately left the site. The technicians were working in a building housing reactor 4, which had already been shut off before the quake hit, Bild am Sonntag reported. A massive explosion occurred around reactor 1, increasing the risk of a nuclear meltdown and radiation leaks.

"They left the power plant immediately after the earthquake and fled further inland," Areva spokesman Mathias Schuch told the paper. "All 10 are healthy and doing fine."

Note also the comment thread, and comment 24:

The 10 men work for Areva. I am good friends with 5 that I know where there, and I'm not sure who the other 5 were. We do the same type work all over the world. They were there for Ultrasonic inspection of some pipes and welds. It is common practice that all Nuclear Plants contract this type work to large companies that are truly experts in that field. They were instructed to leave site after the quake and spent the next few days in a disaster shelter set up in a gym 40 km away. When an opportunity came to leave and return to Germany they did so. I am happy they are back and there are 10 more spaces in the shelter for Japanese citizens.
Again, these are patterns. The fingerprints of -paths.

The authorities mismanaged the BP Disaster. The authorities are mismanaging the Fukushima Disaster.

See this interview with Hirose Takashi at Poor Richard's blog.

Yoh: It will take 1300 tons of water to fill the pools that contain the spent fuel rods in reactors 3 and 4. This morning 30 tons. Then the Self Defense Forces are to hose in another 30 tons from five trucks. That’s nowhere near enough, they have to keep it up. Is this squirting of water from hoses going to change the situation?

Hirose: In principle, it can’t. Because even when a reactor is in good shape, it requires constant control to keep the temperature down to where it is barely safe. Now it’s a complete mess inside, and when I think of the 50 remaining operators, it brings tears to my eyes. I assume they have been exposed to very large amounts of radiation, and that they have accepted that they face death by staying there. And how long can they last? I mean, physically. That’s what the situation has come to now. When I see these accounts on television, I want to tell them, “If that’s what you say, then go there and do it yourself!” Really, they talk this nonsense, trying to reassure everyone, trying to avoid panic. What we need now is a proper panic. Because the situation has come to the point where the danger is real.
...Yoh: Every day the local government is measuring the radioactivity. All the television stations are saying that while radiation is rising, it is still not high enough to be a danger to health. They compare it to a stomach x-ray, or if it goes up, to a CT scan. What is the truth of the matter?

Hirose: For example, yesterday. Around Fukushima Daiichi Station they measured 400 millisieverts – that’s per hour. With this measurement (Chief Cabinet Secretary) Edano admitted for the first time that there was a danger to health, but he didn’t explain what this means. All of the information media are at fault here I think. They are saying stupid things like, why, we are exposed to radiation all the time in our daily life, we get radiation from outer space. But that’s one millisievert per year. A year has 365 days, a day has 24 hours; multiply 365 by 24, you get 8760. Multiply the 400 millisieverts by that, you get 3,500,000 the normal dose. You call that safe? And what media have reported this? None. They compare it to a CT scan, which is over in an instant; that has nothing to do with it. The reason radioactivity can be measured is that radioactive material is escaping. What is dangerous is when that material enters your body and irradiates it from inside. These industry-mouthpiece scholars come on TV and what to they say? They say as you move away the radiation is reduced in inverse ratio to the square of the distance. I want to say the reverse. Internal irradiation happens when radioactive material is ingested into the body. What happens? Say there is a nuclear particle one meter away from you. You breathe it in, it sticks inside your body; the distance between you and it is now at the micron level. One meter is 1000 millimeters, one micron is one thousandth of a millimeter. That’s a thousand times a thousand: a thousand squared. That’s the real meaning of “inverse ratio of the square of the distance.” Radiation exposure is increased by a factor of a trillion. Inhaling even the tiniest particle, that’s the danger.

Yoh: So making comparisons with X-rays and CT scans has no meaning. Because you can breathe in radioactive material.

Hirose: That’s right. When it enters your body, there’s no telling where it will go. The biggest danger is women, especially pregnant women, and little children. Now they’re talking about iodine and cesium, but that’s only part of it, they’re not using the proper detection instruments. What they call monitoring means only measuring the amount of radiation in the air. Their instruments don’t eat. What they measure has no connection with the amount of radioactive material. . . .

Yoh: So damage from radioactive rays and damage from radioactive material are not the same.

Hirose: If you ask, are any radioactive rays from the Fukushima Nuclear Station here in this studio, the answer will be no. But radioactive particles are carried here by the air. When the core begins to melt down, elements inside like iodine turn to gas. It rises to the top, so if there is any crevice it escapes outside.

Yoh: Is there any way to detect this?

Hirose: I was told by a newspaper reporter that now Tepco is not in shape even to do regular monitoring. They just take an occasional measurement, and that becomes the basis of Edano’s statements. You have to take constant measurements, but they are not able to do that. And you need to investigate just what is escaping, and how much. That requires very sophisticated measuring instruments. You can’t do it just by keeping a monitoring post. It’s no good just to measure the level of radiation in the air. Whiz in by car, take a measurement, it’s high, it’s low – that’s not the point. We need to know what kind of radioactive materials are escaping, and where they are going – they don’t have a system in place for doing that now.

Very scary stuff. Did you get a warning to stay indoors or anything like that while all these invisible and immeasurably small particles are being released and carried around the world, just waiting for people anywhere and everywhere to ingest them? No we didn't either. And yet it is already done, already happening.

Who will be held accountable for the cancers and deaths? No one of course. No one is ever held accountable. How will anyone who gets cancer next year prove that their illness was caused by an invisible, deadly radiation particle that they inhaled after it traveled halfway across the world? These things happen. You know the word for it: REGRETTABLE.

"The condition of the injured workers was not immediately known. Japan’s chief cabinet secretary Yukio Edano said the situation was “very regrettable”." Fukushima workers in hospital after radiation exposure


A very lucky victim might get covered as a human interest story, complete with a shakedown of the rest of us for money. But the people actually responsible will never be held accountable.

Who are the people responsible? That's a good question for another post.

Meanwhile please see this excellent site for more information: The Low Level Radiation Campaign.

The things that need to be measured are not being measured.

The principal alpha-emitting nuclides of interest are Plutonium and Uranium. To all intents and purposes only specialised and expensive scintillation counters like the DP2 Elektra can detect them in the environment. Even then the detector window must be within 2cm of the radioactive particle....There is a cause for concern. As we have already said, it is more than likely (in fact quite certain) that Plutonium and Uranium are part of the fallout mix. If the gamma signal goes above background you have to assume there are particles floating about that you definitely do not want inside your body. The problem with alpha-emitting particles is that although the range of their radioactive decays is very short, they are immensely destructive, killing cells and potentially mutating the DNA of cells which survive. The standard ICRP model of radiation risk takes an average of the energy of those decays as if it were distributed across large volumes of tissue and concludes that the risk is low. This is as stupid as believing that because it's safe to warm yourself by the fire it's equally safe to absorb the same amount of heat by eating a red-hot ball bearing. At the date of writing we still know of no information from Japan on alpha emitters from the disaster. This is a serious dereliction of duty to the public.
Problem? Murderous radioactive particles being released uncontrollably from broken down plant. Solution? Just Don't Measure Them. This marks another pattern.

See: women and children first as usual

This is a disaster unfolding in Japan. This will cause INDISCRIMINATE DEATH to people across the world. It just takes time. Time for the DNA to mutate.

ENOUGH!

Guest post by James at Winter Patriot Community...




Enough of this madness. Reading the news is becoming hair pulling stuff, isn't it? It feels like any reasonably competent twelve year old could run things in this world better than the psychopathic lot we have for leaders have been doing.

But that's it, isn't it? They're psychopaths and that's why every thing is turning to shit. None of them are the least bit concerned about the people they harm, injure and kill. War is an opportunity for Quislings to become statesmen. War is an opportunity for electorally spent politicians to get it up for one more election. And those that could have prevented the war and just stood by instead, can wring their hands with regret and utter their condolences on behalf of the disenfranchised to the families of the disembowelled.

The leaders of Russia, China, India and the Arab League could have prevented the attack on the Libyan people simply by saying, “No”. But they didn't. They regret the carnage but not their decisions it seems. Psychopaths. Gotta be. Either that or they are too stupid to tie their own shoelaces. Either way, we can do without them. We need to do without them.

And who cares if a nuclear reactor goes incandescent? Who cares if a power station turns itself into the Roman Candle from Hell because they were too stupid to do something to prevent what everybody with half a brain in their head could see was inevitably coming? No, they'd rather lie and look like they know everything. We've got our kickbacks in our kitbags and we're jetting out of the area on the first plane while the paid conscienceless mouthpieces calm everyone down so they can all get irradiated and don't clog up the airport for us, thank you.

It's the psychopaths, isn't it? They're the ones that cause the problems for us all. They're the ones who site nuclear reactors over geological fault lines. Not just in Japan either. They do it all over the world. They're the ones who make unbelievably more dangerous nuclear fuel rods out of plutonium because it is more economic. Well, it's more economic if you lie about the quality control checks because you had to cut budgetary corners and then pass on the clean up costs after the inevitable disaster to the government. “Oh, did people die? I'm very sorry to hear that. That's very regrettable. But there were only a few and it was a million to one chance, anyway. More people will die driving to work this morning, you know.” That's their reality.


Source

This article draws heavily on the work of Keith Harmon Snow. So here is the reality from him-

Of course, technology gurus and corporate executives and financial consultants are hysterical, claiming there were no deaths from Three Mile Island and that deaths at Chernobyl are exaggerated by the mass media. These claims are false. The new book, Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment provides irrefutable evidence of massive loss of life.

"The book is solidly based -- on health data, radiological surveys and scientific reports -- some 5,000 in all," says journalist Karl Grossman. "It concludes that based on records now available
, some 985,000 people died, mainly of cancer, as a result of the Chernobyl accident. That is between when the accident occurred in 1986 and 2004. More deaths, it projects, will follow."

And, by the way, if adequate warnings had been given when the dangers were known, a whole bunch of people would have been spared death or injury. But we can't admit to how bad a fuckup we've made of things, now can we? No, there's no need to panic. We are on the way to getting things back under control. And this is what regaining control looks like at Fukushima reactor #3 –


source

While we're talking about Fukushima, here's Keith Harmon Snow's list of stupidities behind this disaster-

Nuclear stupidity No. 1: the Fukushima reactor buildings are square (not circular) and had to absorb the force of the tsunami wave straight on. Stupidity No. 2: six reactors clustered too close together. Stupidity No. 3: no shoreline protection against a tsunami. Stupidity No. 4: reactors sited on earthquake faults. Stupidity No. 5: assumptions and calculations proving that the reactor, prior to its construction, could withstand anything that nature threw at it. Stupidity No. 6: it didn't begin in Japan: the industry, with all its corruptions, false assumptions and technological hubris, was born in secrecy in the United States of America.

Stupidity No. 125: spent fuel pools are packed too tightly, as is well-established by industry documents, for economic reasons, discarding safety concerns. Stupidity No. 458: the Spent Fuel Pools at Fukushima are suspended up high inside the reactor buildings secondary containment -- the same buildings whose roofs are blowing off! Are we to believe that the massive explosions that were captured on film, and others that were not, did not damage these elevated time bombs?


Unbelievable, no? Storing years of spent and radioactive fuel rods above the reactor with no back-up containment. It was no doubt cheaper than doing storing them somewhere else in a properly designed, well, lets say a better designed storage facility. Sane societies do not need lunatics like this in their midst.

Keith Harmon Snow's article “NUCLEAR APOCALYPSE IN JAPAN” is extremely well researched and written. Though the subject matter is hair pulling stuff, I recommend you read it together with an update entitled “JAPAN: RADIATION 'SAFE', PRESS EVACUATES, INVESTORS SCARED”

While you are at it, you can read about all the warnings Greenpeace gave to the Fukushima District Court in 2000 in an attempt to stop the Fukushima #3 reactor using MOX (Plutonium) fuel. What they warned about has come about. But will those responsible be brought to account? Not bloody likely, even though the evidence is all there.


source

And Stuxnet. How could I forget that criminal piece of lunacy, Stuxnet. The worm that turned. It was designed by Israeli and US departments and overseen by these two clowns.



It wreaked havoc with the Iranian nuclear project (which it was designed for). Israel has boasted about it and MI6, through their mouthpiece the Telegraph, dobbed in those two rogue countries, Israel and the US, for us. See here . The problem with it now is that it has gone viral and is bound to mess up all sorts of industrial functions that use Siemens S 7 controllers. Wanna guess which controllers the Fukushima plant uses? Make that 'used'? Yes, indeed, patient reader, you guessed it. And 63 copies of it have been found on USB's in Japan. So it is highly likely that the worm developed by those insane people in Mossad and the NSA have now unleashed a horror on the Japanese people who are just trying to make a living and cope with earthquakes and tsunamis at the same time. And if the meltdown (or meltdowns) proves to be worse than Chernobyl (which it shows every sign of doing) then these criminally insane morons will be responsible for millions of deaths over the coming decades. Haven't the Japanese suffered enough gratuitous death from nuclear radioactivity already? (courtesy of the US government)

And which halfwit signed this Israeli firm up to run security at Fukushima? See here too It just goes on and on. Enough!

And what about all these earthquakes? What about these tsunamis? Are we to believe that the US Military/Industrial snake that has spent many millions (billions?) of taxpayers money researching how to modify the weather and cause tsunamis etc. will not use it? See Keith Harmon Snow again for all you never wanted to know about this perverse militarisation of nature. (Out of the Blue:
Black Programs, Space Drones, and the Unveiling of U.S. Military Offensives in Weather as a Weapon
)

How about that the tsunami that devastated a huge swath through Asia a few years ago? It was caused by an 'earthquake' which had its epicentre just offshore from Aceh in Indonesia and yet it couldn't knock over a building in that town. A convincing argument has been made that the facts fit better with a nuclear bomb being detonated in the undersea trench rather than a natural earthquake and I'm inclined to believe it.

But anyway, lucky for the Achens, the US Navy was all pre-prepared and in the neighbourhood to rush in and secure . . . sorry, help . . . just in case a building did decide to fall over later. The US military base at Diego Garcia had plenty of warning but not so the poor people of Thailand and elsewhere. The US military seems especially blessed in these matters.

And Haiti? Same deal. Except the buildings did fall over this time. But the US Navy was there again in a flash .. .. to help. Except they aren't much help at all because the people are still living in tents without water. But hey, we've found lots of oil. Isn't everybody happy? And all that donated money, too. Where's that gone? Maybe to run those dodgy field hospitals that all those kids disappeared into.

And Katrina? How we doin' down there in New Orleans after all this time and money and equipment and what-have-you? Still looked like shit the last time I looked. How about all those resourceful volunteers that were rescuing stranded people and were stopped from continuing? And Brownie, . . . . fuck you.

And all the time these disasters are going on, we are fed bullshit from morning till night. Blatant, in your face lies. Every talking head on the teevee is lying. They always have, haven't they? They wouldn't be an “expert” and get to go on teevee if they weren't prepared to mislead (i.e. lie to) the public. They simply wouldn't get a guernsey; they wouldn't get to play.

See here for some revelations about 'experts' and how they shape the public's understanding of 'science' and earthquake prediction in particular

But we know all this don't we? We know we are being lied to. We know 'they' do what ever they like and don't give a damn about what we think because we'll just keep trotting along grumbling to ourselves. But now we are starting to see that 'they' are causing many of these disasters in the first place and if they don't then they capitalise on them to make them ten times worse than they would have been otherwise. They dis-empower and victimise us at every step.

Well, no more. It's time to cry “ENOUGH”. It's time to tell the truth about what we know at every opportunity. It's time to confront every politician we come across with the fact that they dance to the tune of their electoral fund providers; that all their talk of democracy is bullshit because they never vote the way people want them to; that they tow the party line (bank bailouts); that they don't even read the bills they vote for (Patriot Act). When they do surveys it is to see how little they can do to keep us happy and how to phrase their lies.

It's time to start asking the hard questions at the church functions and services. It's time to ask “Who would Jesus bomb?” And demand an answer. “And what does 'turn the other cheek' mean to you, Pastor? Non-violence, maybe?”

It's time to talk to our neighbours that are involved in the armaments industry. It's time to talk to his son to reconsider joining the military. Like, “Do you know that the sole purpose of the armed forces is to kill people?” And “Do you really want to spend the rest of your life dealing with the nightmares from doing that; killing people who never said so much as one nasty word to you?” “Thou shalt not kill”? “Do unto others......”? “Do you really think your God wants you to kill people?”

This is what 'blood lust' does to a "nation's finest".The victim was only a boy.

Check out A13's post for a righteous rant on war and the evil it spreads

And don't get me started on the mind numbing hypocrisy of a "no-fly zone" over Libya and the resulting carnage there. WHAT ABOUT GAZA???

It's time to talk to strangers. The media lie to us and keep us separate. But only so long as we oblige. We don't have to. We have the power to change things and there's nothing the Powers-That-Be can do about it. We turn off the teevee and we talk to each other. We start to connect with our humanity more rather that some teevee show all about toilet humour or some psychopath who misleadingly shows how 'righteous violence' works out. Play chess or poker with your friends. Teach you kids how to play. Good for the brain. Organise into ad hoc groups to do things even if it is only to clean up old Mrs Brown's back yard.

We need to get back our family and neighbourhood connections and start helping each other without going to some government or some municipal council or some 'authority' to organise it for us or to do it for us. We don't need them! We've had enough of them. Haven't we? Enough!

It's time to stop voting for these tag team political parties, too. They're stacked with psychopaths. They work for psychopaths. As if we didn't have enough trouble dealing with psychopaths in our workplaces, in our churches without voluntarily voting them into power over us. That's just nuts! If you have to vote, vote independent.

Psychopaths have no empathy for others. They have no concern for our welfare. They are incapable of it. They can look and sound like they can and are but they're just lying. They've learnt how to do that by copying others. So, often they'll overdo it. They'll be too charming. There's a clue, folks. They actually have no conscience. They are the very last people we would want in power. And, yet, they are the very ones who pursue it.

It's time to learn about psychopathy and the danger it poses to humanity. It's a very real danger and when it comes down to it, the only real danger to humanity. It's time to talk to our neighbours about it and how to recognise it and how to deal with it. We've had enough of their destructive behaviour.


source Libya - March 2011

Depending on whose research you go by, psychopaths constitute between 4 and 6% of the population. So let's settle on 5%. That's one in twenty people. 90% of psychopaths are males. So that means near enough to one in ten men are psychopaths. That's worth thinking about for a moment.

If you take into account the fact that psychopaths are attracted to professions and careers that involve wielding power, you might reasonably say that perhaps one in five rather than one in ten people entering into the military, the police, medicine, psychology/psychiatry, law, religious ministries and, of course, politics are psychopathic.

These psychopaths are adept at climbing hierarchical organisations and they have the ability to recognise each other and will promote and network with each other to the cost of everyone else. So they become more prevalent the higher up the organisation you go. Do we want to be dependent on these organisations and the psychopaths that invariably run them any more? No. We've had enough.

We've had enough Katrinas: enough Haitis; enough Fukushimas; enough Hiroshimas; enough bloody wars; enough killing lies. We are now no longer sitting still in the face of this insanity. I will explain that psychopathy is our only real enemy to anyone who'll listen (and even those that won't!). And I for one will call bullshit every time I hear it from now on.

I've had enough.

Libya, Oil, Uranium and War

Guest post by James at Winter Patriot Community...


Keith Harmon Snow has written an important and far ranging article on the current situation in Libya and how it has come about entitled GENOCIDE IN LIBYA? NATO INVASION UNDER WAY. ITS THE OIL, STUPID..

It is a necessarily long article and well worth the effort taken to read it in full. But to give it some added coverage and to encourage others to read it, I have quoted (in italics) extensively from it below and hope I haven't done Mr. Snow a disservice in the process.








"Are events unfolding in Libya, Tunisia and Egypt more about petro-terrorism or about freedom and democracy? How much oil is there in North Africa? Who is in control of that oil? What is the relationship between the West and Muammar Gaddafi? Is he really the terrorist we've all been led to believe he is? Who is the Libyan "opposition" and who are the "rebels" we read about?" ......


..."In almost all western media accounts, the so-called "opposition" in Libya includes the unspecified, unnamed, unidentified "rebels" of the National Front for the Salvation of Libya (NFSL). These are not innocent 'pro-democracy' protestors who began with a 'peaceful sit-in' as reported by the New York Times and uncritically repeated everywhere else.

Reportage of atrocities in Darfur, Sudan (2003-20011) and Rwanda (1990-1994) was always blamed on the governments (Omar Bashir in Khartoum and Juvenal Habyarimana in Kigali) with no context to the foreign backed insurgency and intervention occurring, which in both cases involved the US, UK and Israel. Similarly, in Libya today, there is no context or history to the FNSL 'rebels': they are categorically presented as the good guys, no matter that they seem to have appeared out of thin air. No one explains who these people who are cited as sources by the New York Times or CNN or Democracy Now are.

The FNSL was part of the National Conference for the Libyan Opposition held in London in 2005, and British resources are being used to support the FNSL and other 'opposition' in Libya. The FNSL was actually formed in October 1981 in Sudan under Colonel Jaafar Nimieri-- the US puppet dictator who was openly known to be a Central Intelligence Agency operative, and who ruled Sudan ruthlessly from 1969 to 1985. The FNSL held its national congress in the USA in July 2007. Reports of 'atrocities' and civilian deaths are being channeled into the western press from operations in Washington DC, and the opposition FNSL is reportedly organizing resistance and military attacks from both inside and outside Libya.

Italy and France are also said to be backing these opposition groups, as the Italian and French oil companies Total, AGIP and ELF seek to control, protect, and expand their penetration into the extractive industries sector in Libya. Many of the petroleum concessions in Libya, Tunisia, Algeria and Egypt appear (the map is 15 years old) to be held by state-owned oil companies -- but foreign interests have been deeply involved in joint ventures with Libya's National Oil Company (NOC) for many years.

European, Korean and Japanese penetration of the Libyan oil market had already occurred before the US sanctions were lifted in 2004: US multinationals were losing out. AGIP has been involved in Libya's oil sector for decades in LIbya's Elephant Field (and other sites) through its joint ventures between Italian Eni Corporation and Libya's NOC; these operations also involved a consortium of Korean and British (LASMO) corporations. Eni is Italy's largest multinational oil and gas corporation, involved in 70 countries, and Eni has worked in Libya since 1959. Belgian giant Petrofina also has sizable operations in Libya.

In late February, British Special Forces evacuated hundreds of British nationals from the Libyan desert. The companies they worked for, and their reasons for being in Libya, were not reported (as usual).The operations were coordinated with Germany, Italy, Turkey -- and certainly with the US. British Petroleum last year was embroiled in a scandal for influence-peddling used to secure a contract for petroleum exploration in Libya. Royal/Dutch Shell also held some 26 high-level meetings in Libya and won [sic] contracts against US rivals like Texas oil corporation Occidental Petroleum (OXY), ejected when Libya's oil fields were nationalized in 1970.

OXY was the first US petroleum corporation to resume operations in Libya when sanctions were lifted in 2004. In 2008, Oxy reached new 30 year agreements with Libya to redevelop and explore in its "most prolific producing area" -- the Sirte Basin. US major ExxonMobil reported "milestone achievements" in the Libyan oil sector in 2009.

National Endowment for (non) Democracy

In 1983, the Pentagon, USAID, US State Department, and the CIA were all involved in the creation and implementation of 'Project Democracy' --based on National Security Decision Directive 77 (NSDD 77) -- and this led to the creation of the National Endowment for Democracy. After that, some of the 'softer' tactics used in covert interventions were shifted away from the CIA and onto the NED, whose involvement with covert operations and foreign interventions are nonetheless well-established.

A 'soft' intervention CIA front, the National Endowment for Democracy has been deeply involved in Libya along with the CIA fronted Freedom House (under their Blue Umbrella program and others). These entities have backed 'opposition', supported propaganda campaigns and so-called 'pro-democracy' movements, and are known to be involved with backing armed insurgents and interventions." ......


....."[W]estern reportage on the alleged [sic] use of Libyan government air forces to attack 'rebel' forces is extremely biased, extremely duplicitous, and extremely hypocritical. First of all, Libya is under attack -- acts of aggression in contravention of international law -- and has every right to defend its government and interests. Of course, the "international community" will justify all aggression using the new doctrine of "responsibility to protect" -- an imperial faux doctrine meant to serve the most powerful and ostensibly innocent -- even in contravention of international law. In 2009 the air attacks by Israel against Sudan were treated as justice by the western media. Worse still were the massive Israeli air strikes on Gaza -- also in contravention of international law and international humanitarian law: these are war crimes, crimes against humanity and, in the Palestinian case, they are part of a greater genocidal war against the Palestinians."......


....." "[T]he fundamental problem and issue before the people in the region is that the US rulers seek imperial control and imposition of semi-colonial country-selling regimes," reports Ralph Schoenman, in 'US Imperialism Against Democratic ME'. "The more autocratic and brutal, the better from the point of the US imperialism that is unrelenting history. Every time the population is given the opportunity to shape its own destiny, to seek its national independence, to seek its own control over its own resources, to seeks its own sovereignty and determination of its own future, that is incompatible with the US imperialism."

When Barack Obama was accepted by the US people as the new president, Gaddafi praised Obama and described Obama's White House house-sitting gig as "a victory against racism" and he urged the first Black U.S. president "to lead his country boldly and with integrity."

"The Black people's struggle has made tremendous advances against racism in America," Gaddafi said. "It was God who created color. Today President Obama, son of a Kenyan father, a true son of Africa, has made it in the United States of America."

At a speech he gave in his private tent in Tripoli in September 2008, Gaddafi rambled and muddled and zipped his all-over-the-place speech up as quick as he began it. Is he a desert mystic? Did he write the infamous "Green Book" or was it ghost-written? Are his sometimes rambling speeches emblematic of his propensity to try to please, to do what he likes, to be careful not to say the wrong thing, while being unable to remain silent when the hypocrisies of the west are (or were) thrown up in his face?

The Green Book says that workers should be involved and self-employed, and that the land must be of those who work it and those who live in the house. And power shall be exercised by the people directly, without intermediaries, without politicians, through popular congresses and committees, where the whole population decides the fundamental issues of the district, city and country. These are fighting words to predatory international capitalism.

When Gaddafi bowed to Western demands in 2004 it was most likely in part due to the incredible alignment of forces against Libya. Gaddafi and the Libyan government, and governments of other countries, will agree to a lot of imperialist dictates to avoid having a war launched against their country and to allow the people to still enjoy some decent standard of living and peaceful lives. Gaddafi played along with the West's moral righteousness for "The War on Terror" knowing that he didn't have much choice. His opening to western interests made no difference in the end, as too many forces have desired his destruction for far too long. Now that time has come. This is no 'popular revolution' sweeping Libya, though there is a significant popular element to the revolts we are seeing in Libya.

Pentagon Invasion Already Underway?

The US will use any propaganda necessary to whip up American fervor over Gaddafi and justify Pentagon or MI-6 or NATO operations. US and British warships sit off the coast of Libya -- and they don't sit there idly. The imposition of a 'no-fly' zone means that US/NATO planes can do as they like, with the understanding that what we are really talking about are possible bombing and fighter sorties against Libya.

US troops have already moved ashore in Libya, joining the 'opposition ' and 'rebel' forces in 'rebel' controlled territories. The US, France and Britain have already set up Bases in Libya. The recent report noted that British and US special forces entered Libyan port cities of Benghazi and Tobruk on February 23 and 24.

US covert operatives have been on the ground for weeks, and probably much longer than that, whether they have entered by sea (SEALS) or by way of Niger, where the US has openly published information about its covert operations.".......


......."Another strategic geopolitical concern of the western powers is the protection and control of the massive nuclear (uranium) resources both inside Libya and nearby. France and Canada had already signed memorandums (circa 2007-2008) with Libya to explore and exploit uranium in Libya.

France's entire nuclear weapons complex (and massive nuclear power industry) revolves around uranium extracted from Agadez and Arlit in northern Niger and it was built, over the past 50 years, out of the blood, sweat and tears of the Nigerienne people. Japanese companies have been extracting uranium out of Niger through the Overseas Uranium Resources Development Corporation (OURD), in cooperation with U.S., Israeli, German and French corporations. In 2008, France and former colony Algeria signed defense and civil nuclear power accords, including cooperation in research, training, technology transfer and the exploration and production of uranium, all of interest to French nuclear giant Areva Corporation. Canadian and Australian corporations are also mining in Libya's other southern neighbor, Burkina Faso. And yet, unlike Libya, where the people have seen some benefits from the extraction of wealth from their land, Niger remains the second poorest country in the world and Burkina Faso is close behind.

Russia and Ukraine had also signed memorandums with Libya regarding uranium exploration and development. However, China intends to quadruple its uranium consumption and China's largest nuclear power corporation China National Nuclear Corp, has signed an agreement with China-Africa Development Fund to jointly develop uranium resources in Africa. Western nuclear corporations aim to monopolize Libya's uranium sector and exclude China and Russia from the exploration and development -- so they can build the nuke plants themselves and sell uranium to their Asian competitors.".....



China and Russia have inexplicable abstained from voting at the UN Security Council vote on invading Libya rather than exercising their veto which would have prevented this criminal act of war against Libya. Has some deal been struck over this uranium with China and Russia?


....."In short, almost everything in the western press on the crises in Libya is slanted by some faction, or interest, or it is tainted by western arrogance, or by anti-imperialist ideology (of 'solidarity'), even in the case of what is perceived to be the 'alternative' media. There is very little accurate reporting of any kind (but some good work linked or cited herein).

Muammar Gaddafi is portrayed as champion for people of color -- providing funding, hope and solidarity where none existed, and this correspondent is aware that this [white] correspondent's writing herein is deficient in presenting all the positive aspects of his collaboration with people of color.

"The lies of the media cannot hide the fact that Gaddafi has supported the struggles of peoples for liberation in Nicaragua, Cuba, Angola, Mozambique, South Africa and many other countries, specifically concretely helping the people who fought for liberation," writes Antonio Cesar Oliviera, in Who Is Muammar Gaddafi? "In practice, Gaddafi has always been a benefactor of mankind," Oliviera continues, "but for the mercenary [western] media, a benefactor is one who creates wars in search of profits for the arms industry or to dominate the world, as were the wars created by the U.S. in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan, El Salvador, Nicaragua and many other countries."

Gaddafi's alliance with Islam and his support for truly revolutionary movements must be understood for what the capitalist system sees them as: slaps in the face of power and threats to that power. This is one of the biggest reasons that Gaddafi, throughout his tenure as leader of the Libyan Revolution, has been considered the devil incarnate by Washington and London et al. Perhaps there is more truth to this than his supporters would like to believe."........


There is much else in the full article such as mercenaries and mineral claims, Barrink Gold, THe Carlyle Group and our old friend Tony Buckingham and his Heritage Oil. Other countries involving resources and false reporting include Egypt, Sudan, Rwanda and the Congo. I thoroughly recommend it. GENOCIDE IN LIBYA? NATO INVASION UNDER WAY. ITS THE OIL, STUPID.
