giving democracy a bad name

Referring to the activities of the “coalition of the willing

counterfeit democracy .....

The latest draft of the Iraqi Constitution reveals further manipulation by the US.


The draft, not as yet published in either Iraq or the west, reflects significant changes that serve US strategic interests, including the right to establish permanent military installations & also use the country as a staging ground.


The fact that the Iraqi people are expected to understand, debate, consider & decide on their proposed Constitution in 3 weeks, without access to the detail of its provisions, is ample testimony to the real agenda of the US – to construct yet another puppet state, controlled by the White House.


Counterfeit Democracy

When will this carnage stop?

Today the Yank army has blasted "70" insurgent in a town in Iraq... The local people say the dead were mostly ordinary civilians... Who knows... Could have been insurgents disguised as ordinary citizens... Even if half (say 3/4 for good measure) of those killed were "rebels", the rest of the people, who have been shot, have families that will morn their dead, with long memory... for every innocent that is killed one should plan on 10 new insurgents being created (if you insist, say five...)... Thus every time a bomb misses a target and does collateral damage, new insurgency will spring up... In this case, in one attack, the US has created for itself another 75 enemies minimum... In that same day the US lost another six soldiers to various attacks. This, applying the proportion of death to injured soldiers, means that 30 t0 40 soldiers also got injured. But they do not appear on any released list. 10 may have been badly injured. Who knows, but most likely.

Congratulation to the voters in Iraq... Anyway, they do not have much choice anymore... Plod along the way the US wants them to, or wait until the Yanks leave (which won't be for a very long time... 10 years anyone? did I hear fifteen? I personally thought 20 years three years ago...)...

May the lives of the Iraqi people improve despite the presence of Americans, Australians and UK soldiers... May the little mess of president Boosh clean itself up. Hey... he might be lucky, he might... But that idiot should not pat himself on the back for it, if something good happens...

Mr Boosh is no more but a puppet for the new capitalist nazis.

so much freedom & democracy .....

‘Four years after the United States invaded Afghanistan to topple the Taliban government, Afghanistan faces an uncertain and fragile future.   


The government of Kabul has overseen progress in building government institutions, creating security forces, and improving access to education and health. Terrorist leaders have been arrested, and the economy has grown.  


On September 18, 2005, Afghanistan held its first legislative elections in more than 30 years for the National Assembly and Provincial Councils.  At the same time, critical challenges remain. Security has deteriorated over the past year.   


The Taliban, which once harbored Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda, is resurgent. The central government has not been able to establish its authority outside Kabul, and the economy is in dismal shape. Reconstruction has faltered, and the drug trade is thriving as never before.   


The United States must devote more attention and resources to establishing a secure and democratic Afghanistan.  


In the document, "Afghanistan: Four Years After the Invasion", the Center for American Progress assesses progress in four areas: improving security, strengthening governance, curtailing the drug trade, and building the economy.  It then offers a set of recommendations.’  


Afghanistan - Four Years After The Invasion


Four MAJOR Osama bin Laden's lieutenants have escaped from US detention camps in Afghanistan. We have to assume:
a) The US army was careless
b) rendition had made these useless to anyone, including Osama.
c) they had been converted into double agents using well known techniques.
d) The US did not want to bring these fellows to trial because of the ugly US past that could be revealled in prosecutions.
e) someone forgot to lock the door.

promoting our 'values' .....

‘British-trained police operating in Basra have tortured at least two civilians to death with electric drills, The Independent on Sunday can reveal.


John Reid, the Secretary of State for Defence, admits that he knows of "alleged deaths in custody" and other "serious prisoner abuse" at al-Jamiyat police station, which was reopened by Britain after the war. 


Militia-dominated police, who were recruited by Britain, are believed to have tortured at least two men to death in the station. Their bodies were later found with drill holes to their arms, legs and skulls.’

through a broken looking glass .....

‘When a government substitutes propaganda for governing, the Potemkin village is all. Since we don't get honest information from this White House, we must instead, as the Soviets once did, decode our rulers' fictions to discern what's really happening. What we're seeing now is the wheels coming off: As the administration's stagecraft becomes more baroque, its credibility tanks further both at home and abroad. The propaganda techniques may be echt Goebbels, but they increasingly come off as pure Ali G. 


The latest desperate shifts in White House showmanship say at least as much about our progress (or lack of same) in Iraq over the past 32 months as reports from the ground. When President Bush announced the end of "major combat operations" in May 2003, his Imagineers felt the need for only a single elegant banner declaring "Mission Accomplished." Cut to Nov. 30, 2005: the latest White House bumper sticker, "Plan for Victory," multiplied by Orwellian mitosis over nearly every square inch of the rather "Queer Eye" stage set from which Mr. Bush delivered his oration at the Naval Academy.’
