In a scant few months, millions of words about Saddam Hussein and his "weapons of mass destruction" have been penned to paper and spoken on TV and radio. I just returned from Boston and Washington, DC. I took Amtrak from Sacramento to Boston to New Haven, CT, down to Washington, DC, back to Chicago and then home to Sacramento.
One meets a large cross section of Americans from every walk of life on such a long trip. Not one single person I spoke with wants this war with Iraq. From taxi cab drivers in Waltham, Massachusetts, to vacationers on the train off the farm in Iowa, it was the talk from coast to coast. Everyone questioned: Why? The most common comments were: Saddam Hussein is no threat to the U.S. or the Bush Administration has not been truthful to the people of these united States of America.
But what about Communist China?
From a February 29, 2000, piece titled, "China Threatens U.S. with missile strike," by Bill Gertz of the Washington Times reported:
"China stepped up its war of words over Taiwan yesterday, bluntly threatening to fire long-range nuclear missiles at the United States if it defends the island."
Now, that's as direct a threat as one can get against the united States of America by our mortal enemy, the Communist Chinese.
Why hasn't Mr. Bush demanded that Communist China immediately disarm and destroy those nukes pointed at US?
The answer is simple: Trade. On October 20th of 2001, President Bush was in Shanghai with President of China Jiang Zemin.
This was only a few short months after the April 1, 2001 downing of our U.S. Navy EP-3E Aries II surveillance plane by Zemin's military cowboys. The Chinese F-8 fighters that played such a dangerous game, carried air-to-air missiles sold to China by Israel. Twenty four Americans, after a miraculous emergency landing, were then held as prisoners. Eleven days later and after thoroughly stripping down this $80 million dollar airplane and breaking our sensitive defense code, the commies released our freedom fighters and sent us back a heap of salvageable airplane parts.
During those 11 days our military personnel were being held, Americans were wringing their hands in worry. The yellow ribbons went up on trees. Rightfully so, Americans were steaming big time and the families of those 24 crew members were fearful for the well being of their children, husbands and daughters.
Mr. Bush then issued an apology to the widow of the pilot who shot down our plane. Americans reeled from such a slap in the face to our honor by our own President. Mr. Bush called this international incident of deliberate aggression an ‘accident.' Don't rock the trade boat, Mr. President. As a matter of fact, some excellent investigative reporting by Charles R. Smith on Oct. 3, 2001, exposed more of the ugly truth about America's foreign policy:
"Newly released documents show that U.S. Air Force officials met with Chinese military officers in June 2001 to discuss U.S. possible military aid for China.
"According to documents, the meetings took place inside China despite the "policy issues surrounding the (at that time unresolved) EP-3 situation."
While we were all sitting around praying for the safe return of our 24 crew members, only two months later, it was business as usual. These types of secret meetings aren't set up in two days. You can bet the arrangements were being made while our military were being held and We the People were made fools of - again. What did Donald Rumsfeld tell Mr. Bush a mere two weeks before this downed plane, hostage incident?
"....China now perceived as the principal threat to American global dominance."
Really? That would be late March, 2001. By October 2001, Rumsfeld's boss was in Communist China, frocked in the latest fashion from Beijing and making nice with mass murderer, Jiang Zemin:
In April 1997, the Ruskies and Communist Chinese President Jiang Zemin, the butcher of Beijing, signed a formal New World Order agreement in which they pledged to replace the U.S. as the world's lone superpower.
These people are playing for keeps and anyone who thinks otherwise is either in a state of denial or hasn't done their homework on these two communist countries. Communism is not dead in Putin's world - as long as the gold goes into his own private bank accounts.
One month after the President of the united States of America was in schmoozing with Zemin:

Beijing Produces Videos Glorifying Terrorist Attacks on 'Arrogant' US
By Damien McElroy
"The Chinese state-run propaganda machine is cashing in on the terror attacks in New York and Washington, producing books, films and video games glorifying the strikes as a humbling blow against an arrogant nation.
"Communist Party officials say President Jiang Zemin has obsessively watched and re-watched pictures of the aircraft crashing into the World Trade Center. In the immediate aftermath of the attacks, workers at Beijing Television worked round-the-clock to produce a documentary they called Attack America.
"As rescue workers pick through the rubble of the twin towers, the commentator proclaims that the city had reaped the consequences of decades of American bullying of weaker nations.
"He said: "This is the America the whole world has wanted to see. Blood debts have been repaid in blood. America has bombed other countries and used its hegemony to deny the natural rights of others without paying the price. Who until now has dared to avenge the hurts inflicted by unaccountable Americans."
Two months after 9-11, one month after Mr. Bush was in Shanghai playing nice with Zemin and what do we see? Jiang Zemin and his fellow countrymen celebrating the 9-11 attack against America. Wear Made in China or Hong Kong? I'd rather go naked.
Russia: Disarm now!
October 25, 1999 Washington Post
Russia Threatens U.S. Over National Missile Defense System
"The Russian military on Monday threatened the United States over it's intention to create and implement a national anti-ballistic missile system. Nikolai Mikhailov, Russia's first deputy Defense Minister told reporters that "Our arsenal has such technical capabilities to overcome any antimissile defenses. This technology can realistically be used and will be used if the United States pushes us toward it."
It is our right to develop whatever weapons systems our talented people can create to defend our shores. Again, this was a direct threat to America by a foreign power. When will Mr. Bush demand that Vladimir Putin completely disarm and destroy all of his nukes, backed up by threats of war? It won't happen. Too many of Bush's big GOP money donors are doing big business inside Russia.
Here's a small helping of what the Ruskies and Chinese have been up to over the past few years: "The developing anti-U.S. alliance between Russia and China continues to grow. The Pentagon recently discovered a new area of alarming secret cooperation: nuclear weapons." Bill Gertz & Rowan Scarborough, January 14, 2000, WND
On the eve of Mr. Bush's inauguration, January 2001, his future and anti-American new National Security Advisor, Condi Rice, chosen for her color, gender and unwavering support for a new world order, was quoted at a cocktail party as saying: "We don't have any reason to trust Putin."
But wait! Within just a few short months, June 2001 while Mr. Bush was in in Ljubljana, Slovenia to meet with Vladimir Putin, aka The Gray Cardinal, Bush decided within two hours of meeting him that Putin was a man he could trust. Bush's remarks--"I looked the man in the eye," he said, and "I was able to get a sense of his soul."... "I trusted him or I wouldn't invite him to my ranch."
Does anyone else find these inconsistencies as frightening as I do?
Those who clamor for war aren't going to war
Popular cheerleaders for the Bush administration and his unconstitutional war, i.e. Shawn Hannity, Armstrong Williams, Dan Abrams, Newt Gingrich and so many others, have become shrill and desperate on television and radio over the past month or so as they realize the American people do not want this war.
While these 'experts' are beating the drums of war like nothing I've ever seen before, I notice that not a single one of them has gone down and enlisted in this all volunteer military force. Nor do they have sons in the military who could be deployed to the Middle East to fight Mr. Bush's war for oil. But, they're falling all over themselves to send your son, husband or father into harm's way. Why do they do this? Because they're party hacks who put party loyalty above the truth, God, flag and country.
These well paid mouthpieces don't understand the game. I say game because that's exactly what this is: a game of power. One must study how the Masters of the Globe think, what they've done over the past 227 years and how they play the people of this country for suckers. I weep for my Republic and for our precious freedom fighters being sent, once again, to become cannon fodder for the world banking cartel who own the puppets who run our government.
This unconstitutional war against Iraq isn't about terrorism, it's about solidifying a one world system by systematically knocking off one country after another, setting up puppet governments that can and will be controlled by the IMF - the cost of which will be astronomical and handed down to your children and grandchildren.
Stay tuned. Next up: North Korea
