FEAR-MONGERING IN THE UK, HOWARD ON THE ROPES, ISRAEL READIES FOR WAR - AGAIN, AND BUSH DOES SOMETHING STUPID - AGAIN!

BRITAIN’S FEAR-MONGER THINK-TANKS HAVE BEEN AT IT AGAIN WITH MORE RIDICULOUS ‘TERROR’ PLOTS.

Over the years the Americans and their Western allies in the so-called ‘war against terror’ have endeavored to maintain the illusion of there actually being terrorists by creating various stories about ‘al Qaeda’ plots that have either been discovered or thwarted by the ever vigilant authorities. One that has recently been revealed is the ‘al Qaeda’ plot to assassinate UK Prime Minister Tony Blair. According to a report in the UKs Telegraph newspaper, not only were they going to do assassinate Blair but they were going to do it front of the Queen. As usual, the story has absolutely no evidence to support the claim. Just more propaganda to keep the masses in fear.


IT LOOKS LIKE AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER JOHN HOWARD IS GOING TO HAVE TO KISS HIS SEAT GOODBYE AT THE NEXT ELECTION.

The Prime Ministers seat at Bennelong, Sydney, has become increasingly marginal over the past few elections to the point where a poll recently revealed that Howard would have lost his seat had an election taken place a couple of weeks ago. Now, as if that wasn’t bad enough news for Howard, it seems that popular ex-ABC journalist, Maxine McKew, is going to ensure that he well and truly takes a thumping at Bennelong by announcing her intention to stand against him at the next election. The quicker the better!


OLMERT WANTS ISRAEL TO GET READY FOR WAR WITH SYRIA

While Israel’s Military Intelligence Chief, Amos Yadlin, concedes that it is unlikely that Syria would initiate an attack on Israel, Syria would he said more than likely respond to any Israeli provocation – like Israeli fighters buzzing the Syrian Presidents home as they did in June of last year. One can only imagine why the Israelis would want ponder the idea of provoking Syria. It’s typical right-wing Zionist Chutzpah. What better way to provoke the Syrians than to tell Israeli forces to prepare for war with them! But, more importantly, why? Unless…


HOW STUPID CAN BUSH GET? NOW HE’S THREATENING THE LEADER OF THE ONE ISLAMIC NATION THAT REALLY DOES HAVE ‘THE BOMB’ WITH AID CUTS!

Pakistan is the one Islamic nation that really does have nuclear weapons and its leader is only in power by virtue of luck – the kind of luck you need to escape several assassination attempts with more than one of them getting more than a bit too close for comfort. For Bush to threaten Musharraf with cutting aid because he thinks Musharraf’s forces aren’t doing enough to halt border activity with Afghanistan and rounding up Taliban and so-called al Qaeda operatives is plain stupidity. In light of the fact that the Pakistan government together with its nuclear arsenal could fall to a hard-line anti-American Pakistani alliance at the drop of hat and then to threaten the one person that’s holding it together is pure insanity. But we are talking about Bush here.

Can you expand on your thoughts on the studpidity of threatening to withdraw aid from Pakistan and Pakistan's nuclear weapons? It seems that you are suggesting that withdrawing US aid will leave those weapons somehow more available to terrorists. is this right?

Anonymous, Pakistan isn’t a very wealthy nation and relies heavily on foreign aid to help out the poorer parts of the country – which just happens to be that part of the country that is most susceptible to Taliban recruiters. Cut that off and you’re really asking for trouble.

Add to that the fact that much of the US money goes to pay off senior Pakistan military officials and those within the Pakistani Intelligence services that barely keeps Pakistan on side with the US and, if that is cut off, you have real problems. In other words, cutting off the money could be the tipping point for those within the Pakistani government to support the Taliban – just as it did before 9/11.

Isn't this an implicit suggestion that the US should support regimes that do not protect the rights of their citizens in order to prevent the greater evil? This seems out of character for you.

It’s purely an objective observation. If I were an evil lying tyrant like Bush, rather than threatening to cut off aid, I would be pouring more in to keep them on side. My observation was more about how stupid Bush is rather than about any political repercussions that may result from Bush’s actions.
