"We advise you to exercise a high degree of
caution in the
United Arab Emirates because of the
high threat of terrorist attack."
Australia, issuing an alert on Bush's new partners last Sunday, Link
the Hariri Hit
by Robert Parry at consortiumnews.com
The Bush administration is letting the United
Arab Emirates take control of six key U.S. ports despite
its own port's reputation as a smuggling center
used by arms traffickers, drug dealers and terrorists,
apparently including the assassins of Lebanon's
ex-Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
Press accounts have noted that the UAE's port
of Dubai served as the main transshipment point for Pakistani
nuclear engineer Abdul Q. Khan's illicit transfers
of materiel for building atomic bombs as well as the location
of the money-laundering operations used by the
Sept. 11 hijackers, two of whom came from the UAE.
blew the whistle on my Daddy in Iran-Contra..."
This is another example of the Bush administration's
propensity for circumventing legal statute by claiming
an omnipotent presidential right to do so. It
appears Bush and Gonzales, believe the President is bound to
no known laws, if he, as President, decides the
laws simply do not apply.
Assuming any President had such power, which none
ever has, and Bush did manage to circumvent the Geneva
Conventions and US War Crimes Act -- all based
upon a determination that al-Qaeda and the Taliban are not
covered by either legal requirement -- how could
Gonzales or Bush rationalize the torture at Abu Ghraib?
"There have been some dumb decisions since
the 9-11 attacks, but the decision
to sell port operations in New York,
Miami, New Orleans to a company owned
by the United Aran Emerates may be
the dumbest of all."

Subject: privitization and globalization
While we wern't looking, the executive dept of
the US (and of many states as well) "privitized" nearly everything.
What this really means is that (similar to what
happened in Russia after the fall of the USSR) government functions
were turned over to corporations who made a handsome
profit delivering worse services than the government
had formerly delivered. This greatly increased
the opportunity for graft & corruption.
But nobody cared - because, as I said, nobody
Now that the commander in chief is about to turn
over the running of our ports to a government implicated
in the terrorism of 911 people have started to
look. Imagine that!
Maybe they will notice that the government through
its inane trade policy has also exported our vital basic industries
& our manufacturing jobs to slave labor countries
- many of which are using our consumer shopping dollars to build
up their military threat against us. (When
you see China's military build up you see "Your Walmart Dollars At Work".)
The most sinister part of all this is that a world
wide propaganda campaign waged by big media on behalf
of big transnational corporations has convinced
nearly everyone that privatization and globalization are inevitable
and a (just dandy) "New World Order".
Will we wake up at last? Stay tuned.
with the Devil
The Bush family has always had a deal with the
As Kevin Phillips, the man who originally crafted
the GOP "Southern Strategy" for Nixon,
told BuzzFlash, the Bush family only excels at
two things: corporate cronyism and stealing elections.
So it came as no surprise to us that the secret,
labyrinthian corporate cronyism of the Bush Dynasty would
ultimately unfold in a betrayal as bold as turning
over our port security to a nation that has enjoyed close ties
with Osama and Al-Qaeda. After all, Bush went
to war with Iraq when it was Saudi Arabians who were the
primary financiers of Al-Qaeda and the Wahabi
religious faction nurtured by the Saudi royal family is the
leading Islamic promoter of terrorism against
It has nothing to do with Dubai being an Arab
nation (that would be racist); it has everything to do with Dubai
(as part of the United Arab Emirates) cozying
up to the terrorists who threaten us in order to buy them off and
prevent an overthrow of their corrupt sheikdom,
as is the case in Saudi Arabia.
"Bush said he wanted those who are critical
and questioning of this port deal to "step up and explain why."
Well, Mr. President, to equate any country
to your principal partner in the coalition ignores that special
relationship this country's enjoyed with the
United Kingdom for decades and decades. Dubai Ports World
is a UAE government controlled and owned company.
The money used to fund the 9/11 attacks, most of it,
was sent to the hijackers through the UAE
banking system. The UAE stonewalled U.S. efforts to track
al Qaeda bank accounts after 9/11. In addition,
the Emirates does not recognize Israel. And the UAE was a
transfer point for shipments of nuclear technology
to Iran, North Korea and Libya. And if those aren't good
enough reasons, I would just suggest I'm at
a complete loss to offer what might be considered good reasons."
-- Lou Dobbs, another right-winger who has turned of this crooked
a turn for the worse
An unidentified group of people
(American soldiers?) destroyed the golden
dome of one of Iraq's
holiest Shiite shrines Wednesday, setting off
an unprecedented spasm of sectarian violence.
Askariya Shrine before Bush
Shrine after Bush
The bombing of the Askariya shrine in Samarra
has sparked a wave of violence that seemed to push
Iraq closer to all-out civil war than at any
point in the three years since Monkey's illegal oil snatch started.
Betting on the Middle East to get worse
is a guaranteed win.
"Bush is now saying he'll veto any legislation
that stops the UAE from taking over US seaports.
Bush is choosing sides, and he's choosing
an Arab oil country over our national security interests."

Witnesses said Spc. Brandon Bare, 19, of Wilkesboro,
N.C., had enrolled in treatment programs
for anger management and combat stress after
his return from Iraq. He was having trouble controlling
his anger and didn't like that his wife was going
out and partying.
(Lots of gory details you didn't need to read.)
Bare was charged with premeditated murder.

…why, all of a sudden, is Bill Bennett, Sean Hannity,
Fox News, etc. so concerned that a pandemic is possible.
I mean surely these guys must have read what the
World Health Organization wrote a year ago.
I guess they figured they would save it until
the inevitable civil war broke out in Iraq.
Which reminds me, it sure does look like elections
in Iraq work just as well as ours here in America.
Our Great Leader sure knows what he's doing.
I'm worried about this Bird Flu.
We could get hit hard, and as millions die, Bush and Condi would say,
"Nobody could have predicted it would be this
bad," as the networks
line up to excuse another mega-disaster from the Murder Monkey.
Then Poppy and Rummy would sell their "secret Bird Flu cure" at ultra-gouge

be sued for any reason.
They call it "tort reform."

Bruce Bartlett slams Bush for his lack of conservative
principles, charging the administration with
"reckless spending increases, out-of-control
deficits, relentless pandering to business interests,
and a deliberate and willful contempt for policy
analysis. The Bush White House...judges legislation
not by whether it's conservative or liberal,
but solely by whether it will gain the Republican Party a
couple of percentage points of support among
some voting bloc or other. Principle is nothing.
Politics is everything."
But don't confuse Bartlett with a man who has
'seen the light' and is fleeing leftward.

Cheney "appeared inebriated" while hunting on February 11.

and the Ports
Bush clearly made no serious effort to ensure
that the Dubai Ports Deal deal didn't endanger national security.
Bush has spent the past four and a half years
refusing to do anything serious about protecting the nation's ports.
So why did this latest case of sloppiness and
indifference finally catch the public's attention?
Because this time the administration has become
a victim of its own campaign of fearmongering and insinuation.
Let's go back to the beginning. At 2:40 p.m. on
Sept. 11, 2001, Rumsfeld gave military commanders orders.
"Judge whether good enough hit Saddam @ same
time - not only Osama," read an aide's handwritten notes
about his instructions. "Hard to get a good case,"
the notes say. "Sweep it all up. Things related and not."
In other words - let's fabricate ourselves a war with an oil country
we don't like.
So it literally began on Day 1. When terrorists
attacked the United States, they immediately looked for ways
they could exploit the atrocity to pursue unrelated
goals - especially, but not exclusively, a war with Iraq.
But to exploit the atrocity, President Bush had
to do two things. First, he had to create a climate of fear:
Al Qaeda, a real but limited threat, metamorphosed
into a vast, imaginary axis of evil threatening America.
Second, he had to blur the distinctions between
nasty people who actually attacked us and nasty people who didn't.

At the city's main mortuary yesterday corpses
were piled in the corridors according to the districts where they
had been discovered. Periodically a policeman
would shout the name of a district to the crowd outside and take
families to see if they could find their missing
men. There were no stretchers, sheets or shrouds. The bodies were
simply identified, pulled from the piles, dumped
into cheap coffins and removed from the building by any available
transport. Some were simply tied to the roofs
of taxis. "Don't cry," one man told his daughter. "We've got to get
used to this by now. The cheapest thing in Iraq
