NASA launches comet-smashing spacecraft
A NASA spacecraft with a Hollywood name Deep
Impact blasted off Wednesday on a mission to smash a hole in a comet and
give scientists a glimpse of the frozen primordial ingredients of the solar system.
With a launch window only one second long, Deep Impact
rocketed away at the designated moment on a six-month, 268-million-mile journey to Comet Tempel 1. It will be a one-way trip
that NASA hopes will reach a cataclysmic end on the Fourth of July.
"We are on our way," said an excited Michael A'Hearn
of the University of Maryland, the mission's chief scientist.
Minutes later, the spacecraft shot out of Earth's orbit and onto its collision course.
"We'll be there July Fourth," NASA launch director
Omar Baez said.
The flight was barely under way when an overheating
problem ！ considered slight and not at all damaging ！ was detected by the spacecraft itself. Onboard computer software put
Deep Impact in a protective "sleep" mode that flight controllers expected to emerge from within 24 hours, via recovery commands.
"We don't see it as a long-term threat by any means,"
said project manager Richard Grammier. The spacecraft is healthy, with the solar panel deployed and generating power, and
the temperature increase in the propulsion-system heaters is slight and well within safety limits, he said.
Scientists are counting on Deep Impact to carve out
a crater in Comet Tempel 1 that could almost swallow the Roman Coliseum. It will be humans' first look into the heart of a
comet, a celestial snowball still containing the original building blocks of the sun and the planets.
Because of the relative speed of the two objects at
the moment of impact ！ 23,000 mph ！ no explosives are needed for the job. The force of the smashup will be equivalent to
4 1/2 tons of TNT, creating a flash that just might be visible in the dark sky by the naked eye in one spectacular Fourth
of July fireworks display.
Nothing like this has ever been attempted before.
Little is known about Comet Tempel 1, other than that
it is an icy, rocky body about nine miles long and three miles wide. Scientists do not even know whether the crust will be
as hard as concrete or as flimsy as corn flakes.
"One of the scary things is that we won't actually
know the shape and what it looks like until after we do the encounter," said Jay Melosh, a planetary geologist at the University of Arizona.
The comet will be more than 80 million miles from Earth
when the collision takes place ！ on the sunlit side of the comet, NASA hopes, in order to ensure good viewing by spacecraft
cameras and observatories. The resulting crater is expected to be two to 14 stories deep, and perhaps 300 feet in diameter.
Scientists stress that Deep
Impact will barely alter the comet's orbital path around the sun and will not put either the comet or a chunk of it on a collision
course with Earth. In the 1998 movie "Deep Impact," astronauts try to blow up a comet in hopes of saving the Earth, but the
comet winds up being split in two and one section slams intoA jagged, cratered comet like the one headed for Earth in the
movie would be difficult if not impossible to hit because of all the shadows, Melosh said. Comet Tempel 1 is believed to be
smoother and easier to strike, unlike that "Hollywood nightmare."
The scientists came up with
the Deep Impact name independently of the movie studio, around the same time, neither knowing the other was choosing it, even
though some members of NASA's Deep Impact team were consultants on the picture.
Deep Impact is carrying
the most powerful telescope ever sent into deep space. It will remain with the mother ship when the copper-fortified impactor
springs free the day before the comet strike, and will observe the event from a safe 300 miles away.
NASA space telescopes like
the Hubble will also watch the collision, along with ground observatories and amateur astronomers. The impactor will have
a camera, too, that will snap pictures virtually all the way in.
The entire mission costs
$330 million, all the way through the grand finale.
creating a huge tsunami on the East Coast.
It is mistaken to believe that tsunami's are purely
caused by unpredictable seismic events.
There is technology in
existence that can spark such tragic seismic events. This technology
is possessed by both military
governments and by extraterrestrial
races. Here is a quote from former US Defense Secretary William
Cohen revealing the existence of such technologies:
[terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism
whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes
through the use of electromagnetic waves... So there are
plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways
which they can wreak terror upon other nations...It's real, and
that's the reason why we have to intensify our [counter
efforts." - Defense Secretary William Cohen, 1997.
This famous speech by Cohen was a clue that deadly
and can be used to spark events such as the giant earthquake off
Sumatra. This raises the question of why would governments
races do this? Let us offer an answer to this based on some recent
research we have been doing in the Charles
Charles Hall gave testimony of a race of tall white
extraterrestrials who have agreements with the US Air Force where in
for giving technology related to space travel, the ETs
receive certain earth resources, metals such as titanium and also
quantities of food and clothes, especially children's clothes.
These clothes were ostensibly for use by the tall whites
on their regular interstellar ships that visit the Earth carrying
cargo for trade. Our evaluation of the Hall
testimonies is that these
clothes and food are probably used for human cargoes shipped off as
part of an interstellar
Major of Earth resource taken off planet by the tall whites are human
children, as evidenced by the children's
clothes given to them by
the USAF, and condescending comments by tall white females over how
humans don't love their
children like the tall whites do.
What we would like to offer is a hypothesis
for what happened during the
earthquake and tsunami. I believe that the quake was probably
sparked by ETs using scalar
technology. The resulting devastation
makes it possible for large numbers of people to simply be abducted
for the interstellar
slave trade that I believe exists, and is well
known by government authorities. Most of the abductees are children
appear to be the most precious resource desired by the ETs
conducting this kind of trade. Here are some comments from the
Boston Globe news story on
what happened with regard to children
victims of the Tsunami:
"Many of the dead and missing were children - as many
as half the
victims in Sri Lanka. ``Where are my children?'' asked 41-year-old
as she searched for her 11 youngsters in Banda Aceh, the city
closest to Sunday's epicenter. ``Where are they? Why did
to me? I've lost everything.''
it can be guessed that natural disasters will naturally take a
heavy toll on children, it certainly is interesting to note
many are already questioning the large number of children that have
Now do the tall whites
actually conduct the abductions of humans
trapped in these disaster zones? There is no evidence for that
but I believe it is conducted by other extraterrestrial
races such as the Grays who are well known to be conducting
involving large numbers of individuals. The Grays have
developed the expertise for abducting large numbers and while during
times these are returned as 'abductees', it is very
possible that in disaster scenarios the abductees are not returned
are taken off planet or used in other ways. This is something
that the contactee Alex Collier has revealed about the Gray
known as the Dows:
Grays abduct civilians and then
when this can be done without
Alerting the general public, have them transported
planet as part of a slave trade by races such as the tall
whites. Why such a convoluted arrangement? We believe the answer is
in the nature of the agreements the tall whites have reached with
and shadow government authorities in contrast to agreements
with the Grays. Basically, the tall whites have permission
conduct interstellar trade using Earth resources, while the Grays
have permission to conduct abductions for genetic
purposes but can't
take abducted civilians off planet. While there are large numbers
of 'friendly' extraterrestrial
races monitoring the situation who
have the power to intervene and prevent Grays abducting civilians
and taking them
off planet, it appears they do not have the power to
do so when races such as the tall whites do this since the latter
binding agreements with the USAF for conducting interstellar
trade using 'various earth resources'. If the tall whites
cooperate with their respective agreements reached with shadow
government authorities, all is in place for
an interstellar trade
involving abducted civilians.
This of course is a very disturbing scenario, however, the bright
To all this is the growing level of compassion that accompanies
Such global disasters. While such disasters give a cover for large
Numbers of civilians to be taken as part of an interstellar slave trade,
The same disasters help unleash global compassion/empathy
For the victims/survivors which ultimately strengthen us as a planetary culture.
This makes it more difficult for extraterrestrials to conduct these kinds of dark activities.
The empathy and concern that we generate for one another during such tragic events is the best
the `dark side' of what may be actually happening during such global
disasters. So we can take heart
in the tsunami of compassion
sweeping the planet as our greatest strength, while educating our
minds as to the true
cause and purpose of such events

The following has been News on Internet about Iran, Iraq, Syria and USA.
"Far more than the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, the defeat
of the mullahcracy and the triumph of freedom in Tehran would be a truly historic event."
Ledeen, neo-conservative and member of the American Enterprise Institute, June 2003
Iran is very much in
the US spotlight at present over concerns that it is developing nuclear weapons, with much talk of "regime change". Over the
next four years of the second George W Bush term, any of a number of countries could come into the crosshairs - Syria, Saudi Arabia and "axis of evil" original North Korea.
Ralph Peters, a former lieutenant-colonel responsible for "future warfare" at the Office of the Central Intelligence
Agency (CIA) and deputy chief of staff for intelligence before he retired, commented, "It's really difficult to exactly delineate
who our enemies are, but they number in millions. They're Arab and Muslim ... Our enemy is the majority of the people who
live in what we think of as the large Arab nations, plus certain other groups. Our enemy is concentrated in Egypt, Libya, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Syria, plus the Palestinians
are part of it."
Bush has admitted on the record that the "minds" of his administration are "borrowed" from the right-wing
think-tank American Enterprise Institute (AEI), which rents office space in Washington to the Project for the New American Century (PNAC).
Vice President Dick Cheney's concentration of power under
Bush II will be even more complete. Pentagon chief Donald Rumsfeld - despite Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib, the quagmire in Iraq - remains in place. The CIA under Porter Goss has been through
a Soviet-style purge and is being turned into an ersatz Office of Special Plans (OSP), which everyone remembers was a Rumsfeld-sponsored
operation that specialized in fabricating false pretexts for the invasion of Iraq. The OSP was directed by neo-conservative Douglas Feith
(who now wants the US to attack Iran). The new CIA is Feith's OSP on steroids. Goss' job is to
make sure the CIA agrees with everything Bush and the neo-conservatives say. Expect more wars.
The road to Damascus
The road to Damascus is the key node in the Bush/neo-con roadmap for a new Middle East. Some may think the road starts in Baghdad. Wrong. It starts, simultaneously, in Washington, Jerusalem and Beirut.
And neo-con think-tanks, the Christian Right and ultra right-wing Zionists are busy mapping it. A key player to watch is neo-con
David Wurmser, who has been a member of Cheney's staff since September 2003 and who has for years called for a strike against
Bush and the neo-cons must implicate Syria by all means available. This week Bush warned both Syria and Iran
against "meddling in the internal affairs of Iraq" - as if Baghdad was the capital of Ohio. On a more serious note, Pentagon
military intelligence officials suddenly discovered a few days ago that the Iraqi resistance "is being directed to a greater
degree than previously recognized from Syria" and funded by "private sources in Saudi Arabia and Europe".
was a global positioning system receiver found in a suspicious "bomb factory" in Fallujah with directions "originating in
western Syria". This, Pentagon neo-cons say, proves that Syria hosts Iraqi "terrorists" - who are basically those same Ba'athist
"remnants of Saddam Hussein's regime".
Jordan is not on the neo-con hit list. Of course not: Jordan is a neo-con ideal.
The Hashemite monarchy is endlessly pliable; never emphasizes its Islamic credentials; has an acceptable degree of truculence
(martial law has been in place for decades); has a very effective Mukhabarat (secret police); and never criticizes Israel's
excesses in Palestine. King Abdullah is always a dependable propaganda asset: he has been insisting lately that "foreign fighters
are coming across the Syrian border [towards Iraq], they have been trained in Syria". The king also blamed Syria not long
ago for being behind a huge al-Qaeda chemical weapons plot to bomb the US Embassy in Amman that, if successful, would have
killed about 20,000 people. The US State Department was quick to add that the bombers were Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's people.
So not only does Syria host Iraqi "terrorists", but it is also behind al-Qaeda.
King Abdullah also went on the record
saying he does not welcome the inevitable Shi'ite government that will emerge from the Iraqi elections after January's elections,
implying that a majority of Iraqis are Iranian agents. His father, King Hussein, would never be that sectarian. Of course
it's a coincidence Abdullah said these words shortly after a meeting with Bush. The influential Hawza - the clerics at the
Shi'ite "Vatican" in Najaf - responded in kind, basically accusing Abdullah and his family of always supporting Saddam and
being submissive towards the Americans, adding sharply that the era of free oil from Iraq to Jordan (when Saddam was in power)
Lebanon is often a neo-con target because of Hezbollah and because it's considered a Syrian satellite hostile
to Israel. But now the Lebanese are taking matters in their own hands. All opposition forces are now united. Former president
Amin Gemayel said this week the atmosphere was just like in 1943, "when all Lebanese fought side by side to get independence"
from the French mandate. The leader of the socialist bloc, Walid Jumblatt, said he was "ready to go to Syria" to convey the
message: the Lebanese want a "sovereign and independent state", which means a recognized political role for Hezbollah and
no interference from Syria.
The neo-cons refuse to acknowledge the fact of a Sunni Iraqi war of national liberation.
It's much easier to blame it all on elusive Syrians, evil Ba'athists still devoted to Saddam and Zarqawi - a renegade Jordanian.
Ba'athists are only one component of the resistance, as they were the military establishment under Saddam. Moreover, the antagonism
between Assad's and Saddam's Ba'athist regimes has always been visceral. Syria as a regime does not support the Iraqi resistance:
a few individual Syrian jihadis do.
The road to Tehran
replaced Saddam Hussein as the world's number one exporter of terror, hate and instability," Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan
Shalom told the United Nations General Assembly last September. This is Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and the neo-con
Likud agenda at work. One month later, Sharon said that "Iran is making every effort to arm itself with nuclear weapons, with
ballistic means of delivery, and it is preparing an enormous terrorist network with Syria and Lebanon." This was, of course,
the same Sharon who in February 2002 told the Rupert Murdoch-controlled London Times that "Iran is the center of 'world terror',
and as soon as an Iraq conflict is concluded, I will push for Iran to be at the top of the 'to do list'."
incoming secretary of state Condoleezza Rice was already bombarding the European Union's dialogue with Iran, saying "the Iranians
have been trouble for a very long time. And it's one reason that this regime has to be isolated in its bad behavior, not quote-unquote,
'engaged'." The same Rice on September 2002 alarmed the world about Iraq's supposed weapons of mass destruction, with her
"we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud".
It's the same old script, or excuse for war: first Iraq, now
Iran. Last month, outgoing Secretary of State Colin Powell even alarmed the world by saying Iran was working on nuclear missiles.
He was relying on a single walk-in source with unverified documents. European intelligence officials in Brussels are certain
the source was an Iranian exile briefed by neo-cons Richard Perle and John Bolton.
It doesn't matter that Iran has
agreed - at least temporarily - to stop enriching uranium, in exchange for security arrangements, trade, investment and support
for World Trade Organization admission offered by the European "Big 3" of Germany, France and Britain. In the neo-con master
plan, Iran is doomed to be "shocked and awed" by 2006. The chatter at the AEI, the PNAC and other think-tanks has been thunderous
for quite some time: Iran could be bombed from American bases in Iraq, in Pakistan, or from warships in the Persian Gulf.
There are no illusions about it at the European Union headquarters. According to a EU diplomat in Brussels, "This bitter controversy
over the Iranian nuclear program works as a smokescreen. The neo-conservatives are obsessed with Iran as a fundamentalist
Islamic regime bound on exterminating Israel." Another diplomat adds that the question is not Iran's virtual nukes, per se,
but how to cripple Iran as a military power: "It's the same agenda for Israel, the Pentagon and the White House National Security
Neo-cons privilege a pre-emptive strike with missiles fired from warships in the Gulf against the Natanz
and Arak plants south of Tehran. European intelligence has also identified another huge underground complex "with 1,000 gas
centrifuges and components for the manufacture of 50,000 further centrifuges". Russian engineers are helping to build a heavy
water plant at Arak. Other plants are at Arkadan, east of Natanz, and near the beautiful, historic city of Isfahan. The leaders
in Tehran swear the whole program is developed for civilian use.
In another striking parallel to Iraq, the CIA does
not know much about the current status of Iran's nuclear program, certainly not as much as the Europeans. But it seems to
have successfully penetrated the roughly 800,000-strong Iranian diaspora in southern California, to the extent that a coterie
of wealthy Iranians are eagerly plotting their return home as "liberating" heroes.
One strident player to watch is
neo-con Frank Gaffney, who wrote on the National Review online that "regime change - one way or another - in Iran and North
Korea, [is] the only hope for preventing these remaining 'axis of evil' states from fully realizing their terrorist and nuclear
Long and winding roads
The road to Tehran starts both
in Kabul and Baghdad. This requires examination of the Afghan "model" and the Iraqi "model".
Afghanistan's new democracy
rests on the shoulder of the world's most expensive mayor (US$1.6 billion a month and counting), Hamid Karzai, who barely
controls downtown Kabul protected by 200 American bodyguards, 17,000 American troops and a North Atlantic Treaty Organization
contingent. Without all this heavy metal, Karzai would never last. The country is essentially ruled by the Tajiks and Uzbeks
of the former Northern Alliance - who now control most of the world's supply of heroin - powerful regional warlords and the
Taliban (in the south and southeast). So much for Afghan "democracy".
As for the Iraqi "model", the crucial point
is that the Americans managed to turn Iraq into a replica of Palestine - the same ghastly litany of occupation, suicide bombings,
streams of refugees and death and destruction. Not only was the Iraq war entirely based on neo-con lies: these lies led, among
other disasters, to Iraq's infrastructure being completely destroyed and the US alienating the Muslim world. Fallujah and
Baghdad are replicas of Gaza and the West Bank. A measure of the daily ordeal is offered by these lines written by Iraqi girl
People are wondering how America and gang [ie Prime Minister Iyad
Allawi, etc] are going to implement democracy in all of this chaos when they can't seem to get the gasoline flowing in a country
that virtually swims in oil. There's a rumor that this gasoline crisis has been concocted on purpose in order to keep a minimum
of cars on the streets. Others claim that this whole situation is a form of collective punishment because things are really
out of control in so many areas in Baghdad - especially the suburbs. The third theory is that this is being done purposely
so that the Iraq government can amazingly bring the electricity, gasoline, kerosene and cooking gas back in January before
the elections and make themselves look like heroes.
As for the elections, it's fair to say Riverbend echoes the overall
sentiment in secular Baghdad, according to our sources: "We're watching the election lists closely. Most people I've talked
to aren't going to go to elections. It's simply too dangerous and there's a sense that nothing is going to be achieved anyway.
The lists are more or less composed of people affiliated with the very same political parties whose leaders rode in on American
tanks. Then you have a handful of tribal sheikhs. Yes - tribal sheikhs. Our country is going to be led by members of religious
parties and tribal sheikhs - can anyone say Afghanistan? What's even more irritating is that election lists have to be checked
and confirmed by none other than [Grand Ayatollah Ali al-]Sistani. Sistani - the Iranian religious cleric. So basically, this
war helped us make a transition from a secular country being run by a dictator to a chaotic country being run by a group of
religious clerics. Now, can anyone say 'theocracy in sheep's clothing'?"
The crucial Iraq-Iran-Afghanistan trio lies
at the heart of the Pentagon-denominated "arc of instability" which runs from the Maghreb in Africa to the Kazakh-Chinese
border. Of course it's just a coincidence that the arc holds the majority of the world's reserves of oil and gas.
Our way or the highway
European diplomats confirm that when they got
together with their American counterparts in Washington last October to discuss Iran, there was simply nothing to discuss.
Under Secretary of State John Bolton - a man who, on the record, wants the US to invade Iran - simply read aloud a text where
the US refused to back any European Big 3 negotiations, and wanted Iran immediately dragged to the UN Security Council. European
diplomats remain wary: "The Americans may be paralyzed at the moment - by the lack of international support and because they
are trapped in Iraq. But we cannot underestimate the neo-conservatives, and especially Dick Cheney. He might end up convincing
Bush of the need of a pre-emptive strike against Iranian nuclear sites." Another diplomat adds that "the Americans complain
all the time about our dialogue with the Iranians, but they are incapable of formulating an American strategy".
"strategy" has been formulated by neo-con Danielle Pletka of the AEI. She says that in exchange for Iran handing over all
its (non-existent) WMDs and halting support for "terrorist" groups, Washington should renew diplomatic relations and remove
unilateral sanctions. It's an "our way or the highway" proposition, no negotiations involved.
Both Iran and the EU
have a tremendous stake in the success of the new round of negotiations, which started this week and will, according to European
diplomats, last for many months. For Iran, a deal with the EU is a major twofold strategic victory: it amplifies the political
abyss between Washington and Brussels, and from the point of view of Iranian consumers, it's good for business. For the EU,
it's above all good for big business in the oil and gas industry. A who's who of European majors - Royal Dutch-Shell, Total-Fina-Elf,
Agip, British Gas, Enterprise, Lasmo, Monument - already has and looks forward to expanding Iranian contracts. Not to mention
the Chinese, who last month assured the Iranians in Beijing, after signing a major oil-and-gas deal, that they would block
any move by the International Atomic Energy Agency to take the nuclear impasse to the UN Security Council.
like Reuel Marc Gerecht of the AEI are unfazed, and keep pushing heavily for a pre-emptive strike. Gerecht boasts that "you
have to be crystal clear with them that whatever they dream up, we can dream up something much, much worse". These ideologues
are obviously unaware of the fact that a strike will inevitably alienate the fiercely nationalistic Iranian population, will
lead them to rally en masse in support of the government, and will be disastrous for business from a oil major/corporate American
point of view. And even with a pre-emptive strike, experts agree Iran could rebuild its nuclear program before 2008 - as Iran
learned very well from the Israeli pre-emptive strike that destroyed Iraq's nuclear reactor at Osirak in 1981.
the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency have extensively war-gamed the possible consequences of a pre-emptive strike.
The results were disastrous. The neo-cons dismiss it as perceptions of the so-called "reality-based community".
obviously don't read political scientist Chalmers Johnson, the author of Blowback, who explained how the CIA in the
1950s coined the term "blowback" to refer to "the unintended and unexpected negative consequences of covert special operations
that have been kept secret from the American people and, in most cases, from their elected representatives". Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini rising to power in Iran in 1979 was blowback for the CIA toppling the elected government of Mossadegh in Iran in
1953 and the American cozying up to the Shah regime. The rise of al-Qaeda was in part blowback for the CIA arming the mujahideen
in the anti-Soviet jihad in Afghanistan in the 1980s.
Sharon is an expert in provoking an "excuse" for starting a
regional war - a favorite neo-con tactic. That's what he did in 1982 as Israeli defense minister, when he invaded Lebanon
in "regime change" mode. Blowback was inevitable: the invasion of Lebanon led to Hezbollah, the first intifada, Hamas, suicide
European diplomats stress that "Pakistan proliferated nuclear technology to North Korea, Libya and Iran,
while Iraq was invaded because it was not fast enough to acquire its own WMDs. The regime in Tehran certainly took notice."
It's a given in the corridors of the EU that the regime in Tehran may cultivate a nuclear program - but exclusively for defensive
purposes. It's also a given that having lied so consistently and for so long - aluminum tubes, yellow cake uranium in Niger,
al-Qaeda in secret meetings in Prague, Osama bin Laden and Saddam sleeping in the same bed, etc - neo-cons have little chance
of convincing the EU that Iranian nuclear missiles will soon wreak havoc on London, Paris and Berlin.
The road to Pyongyang
The neo-cons believe the Pentagon should also bomb Kim Jong-il's North Korea. Bill
Kristol, neo-con and chair of the PNAC, escalated the stakes when he recently faxed a statement, "Toward Regime Change in
North Korea", to a select group of "opinion leaders" in Washington, alerting on the emergence of "serious dissident activity"
in the country and urging Bush to promptly deal with it.
Compare it with the sober assessment of Han Ho Suk, director
of the Center for Korean Affairs, "North Korea is one of the few nations that can engage in a total war with the United States.
North Korea's war plan in case of an US attack is total war, not the 'low-intensity limited warfare' or 'regional conflict'
talked about among the Western analysts ... If the US mounts a pre-emptive strike on North Korea's Yongbyon nuclear plants,
North Korea will retaliate with weapons of mass destruction: North Korea will mount strategic nuclear attacks on US targets.
The US war planners know this ... North Korea has succeeded in weaponizing nuclear devices for missile delivery. North Korea
has operational fleets of ICBMs [inter-continental ballistic missiles] and intermediate-range missiles equipped with nuclear
warheads. And North Korea's Dong 2 missile may be capable of hitting the West Coast of the United States, as well as Alaska
The player to watch in this particular "axis of evil" segment is Victor Cha, recently appointed as Asia
director in the National Security Council. He will be the man responsible for American policy towards North Korea.
interesting to compare the neo-con approach with Selig Harrison, director of the Asia Program at the Center for International
Policy. He visited North Korea in the spring of 2004. His assessment is that although the leadership is "very eager for a
settlement" with the US, they are "not prepared to do it in the way the Bush administration is asking them to do it. The North
Koreans say that Washington wants them to, in effect, simply roll over and disarm unilaterally." Harrison criticizes the Bush
administration's "very rigid position, not prepared to trade anything". And this only increases the "risk of war. The point
is, the administration's objective is really regime change in Pyongyang."
The man in charge of this "very rigid position"
is none other than Cha. Cha has argued that "engagement is the best practical way to build a coalition for punishment tomorrow.
A necessary precondition for the US coercing North Korea is the formation of a regional consensus that efforts to resolve
the problem in a non-confrontational manner have been exhausted. Without this consensus, implementing any form of coercion
that actually puts pressure on the regime is unworkable." Cha qualifies this policy as "hawk engagement". It essentially means
that any multilateral talks are destined to fail, because that's the premise of "hawk engagement" - building support for an
attack. So the whole multilateral ballet in the next few months will consist of how China, South Korea, Russia and Japan will
be able to control the neo-con ideologues before they snap it and decide on a "Shock and Awe" against Kim.
The road to Riyadh
Many were abuzz in Washington before the American presidential election when someone leaked
what Bush had said at a donors' luncheon: "Osama bin Laden would like to overthrow the Saudis ... then we're in trouble. Because
they have a weapon. They have the oil." In the neo-con roadmap, Syria and Iran may be short-term targets, but only on the
way to a big prize, Saudi Arabia. Osama and al-Qaeda are more than on track to eventually stage a coup in Saudi Arabia. Simultaneously,
European intelligence confirms there are now even more detailed war plans than in the 1970s for an American invasion of Saudi
oilfields , most of them situated in Shi'ite-populated areas.
European diplomats in Brussels hope that this day will
not come. The joint negotiation with Iran has been one more indication of what these diplomats see as the EU's gradual emergence
as a global political player - a historical inevitability. The EU will eventually have a collective military force - and then
NATO's existence will be pointless. The EU has already questioned the neo-con equivalence of "pre-emptive war" with "just
war". The EU - unlike Bush and the neo-cons - heavily supports the UN, as well as the World Court and the International Criminal
Court. The EU is multilateral - a concept that is anathema for the neo-cons. Nonetheless, this all leads a diplomat to be
overtly pessimistic: "Iran must prepare for an air attack from Israel and the US. This time, no one - the United Nations,
the European Union, not even Britain - will be consulted."
Nuke them all
The Balkanization of the Arab and Muslim Middle East is a follow-up to the "divide and rule" of British colonialism.
It's in the heart of the neo-con agenda. Arab nationalism has to be smashed. And Persian nationalism as well.
neo-con dream is a stable Iraq by the end of 2005 so the US can concentrate on attacking Iran. With the US still bogged down
in a dreadful Iraqi quagmire, the well-oiled neo-con propaganda machine is already full speed ahead manufacturing its trademark
brand of fear: Iranian nukes are coming to get us unless we pre-emptively attack (echoes of Ronald Reagan's "Nicaraguan Sandinistas
about to invade Texas" come to mind). In the weeks and months ahead fear in the US will be multiplied by myriad echo chambers
- right-wing talk radio, corporate media, Christian rapture congregations, hardcore militarists still bent on avenging the
debacle in Vietnam by winning what is a de facto war against Islam.
An American "Shock and Awe" could turn into a nightmare
as Iran is fine-tuning a dizzying array of asymmetrical warfare options, Iran has installed sophisticated anti-ship missiles
on the island of Abu Musa, thus controlling the critical Strait of Hormuz. In a pre-emptive strike, Iran could easily shut
down the Strait of Hormuz - where all Persian Gulf oil tankers must pass. The immediate result: $100 or more for a barrel
of oil - with all the consequences this would entail. Neo-cons don't bother with reality though: they only see that whoever
controls Persian Gulf oil controls the world economy.
Israel may decide to stage a "Shock and Awe" of its own - using
its precious collection of high-tech fighter-bombers. Last September, Israel bought 52 F-16Is from Lockheed Martin. Israel
also bought "nearly 5,000 bombs in one of the largest weapons deals between the allies in years", including "500 bunker busters
that could be effective against Iran's [as of yet unproven] underground nuclear facilities", as Israeli security sources told
Muslims ask how could Israel get away with it. As far as the Arab world is concerned, Arabs could not be
more impotent - or more co-opted at this historical juncture. Incompetence and corruption prevails in Cairo, Riyadh, Damascus
and Amman. Arabs hold no significant political, economic or military power on the world stage. As for the Iranians, descendants
of the Persians, a hugely sophisticated and influential civilization, they are still feared. In 2002, Israel was saying that
Iran could complete its first nuclear weapon by the end of 2004. Nobody called Israel's bluff then, nobody is calling it now.
With the American military in its current state, Bush and the neo-cons cannot possibly reshape the Middle East to
suit the neo-con/Likud agenda. Washington is faced with two options. It could restore the draft - provoking a minor social
earthquake in the US. Or it could develop - and deploy - tactical nuclear weapons, mini-nukes. Fallujah - flattened by "conventional"
means - was just a test. On the road to Damascus, the road to Tehran, the road to Riyadh, the neo-cons would be much more
tempted to go nuclear.
These pictures were just sent to us:
here at work, I was browsing the web and came across the Midwest Haze Cam page. Within that site, they had a web-cam in the
St. Louis area that apparently takes snapshots once every hour.
The following picture
included is what I saw when I clicked on that particular link (mwhazecam.net/st.html). Needless to say, it had the office here abuzz. Heck, they're still talking about it today!
Upon first glance,
you see four (4) black objects in the sky. The fourth is way back, over to the right. However, upon closer inspection, we
noticed another (UFO?) almost in the center of the picture, but determined it was out further in distance than these four.
You may have to magnify the image, but the fifth (5th) is between the transmitting antenna on whatever building that is and
the Arch (see close-up below).
A co-worker here used some image software on the copy he captured, and determined that
these black things are anywhere from 60' to 80' in length. Think these could be stealth fighters? or UFOs?
