High Alert to Distract From Blair Dossier Flap And N.Y.'s March for Peace

By Lloyd Hart

The My Lai massacre was the beginning of a very fruitful career for General Colin Powell who was the information officer for the region in which the My Lai massacre took place. He had the opportunity to tell the world the truth then just as he did on Wednesday the 5th of February 2003 in front of the Security Council at the United Nations but chose to continue destroying his own humanity for his absurd and ridiculous hope of becoming one of the guys. But as it turns out General Colin Powell has been exposed, which is why you don't put a general or any military officers in any civilian diplomatic posts ever. As we found out, great huge gaping parts Powell's testimony to the Security Council were plagiarized and actually available on the Internet, some parts for a decade.

The man that caused part of General Colin Powell's discomfort was Prime Minister Tony Blair who on 6th of February 2003 woke up to newspapers revealing the source of Tony Blair's Iraq intelligence dossier. Given the time change from London to Washington it is very interesting that after General Colin Powell's testimony in the Senate that same day, General Colin Powell and George Bush stood beside each other later in the day while Bush told the world "the game is over!" attempting to signal the world of his resolve to go to war. Then just to keep the pressure ratcheted up while the Blaire Intelligence Dossier Flap spread like the Ebola virus wildly through the Internet and around the world, the White House decides to move the alert status at the Homeland Security Department to Orange or as they say High Alert on February 7th 2003.

I'm beginning to feel like I'm covering the escapades of a small group of nine year-old boys attempting to cover-up the theft of a Hustler magazine from the headmaster's office at an elite private school after a parent finds the magazine under her boys pillow and sees the headmaster's name on the subscription label on the front page of the magazine. The parent turns out to be alumni of the school who then black males the headmaster into a sexual tryst but the wife of the head master walks in on the two having sex and goes to the press.

My question is, do these morons in the White House even care that their maneuvers are so blatantly transparent. If there is a necessity to drive the American public bonkers with this high alert crap I want to see the evidence. I want Tom Ridge to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt, to me and the rest of the American public that it was really necessary after they completely screwed up in front of the U.N. Security Council to take desperate measures and take us to high alert.

As usual these losers in the White House are attempting to swat down several items at once because when these guys screwup they normally have to put out several fires at once and of course normally, they put out the fires with gasoline. It's extremely convenient after denying a march permit to the United for Peace Coalition and the Dossier Flap that they would move the nation to high alert and then rollout New York Mayor Bloomberg to let us now that we should go on living our lives just as normal and to try and ignore the men on the street corners wearing khakis and caring submachine guns.

Well I for one have had it! I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take any more. I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore. I am going to New York City for the 15th of February 2003 United for Peace Rally and March and I'm going to march past the U.N. up to Central Park regardless what the NYPD have to say about it. I will march peaceably posing no threat to anybody. I will be courteous and kind to any NYPD officer that approaches me but the NYPD can be assured that I will not cooperate with any attempt to stop us from marching and will immediately sit down on the street and go completely limp and I suggest a million or so of us do the same. And I suggest that this is where we as a movement make our stand against the fascism encompassing our lives coming from his majesty, the election stealing, thinks he has a God-given mandate, social outcast in the White House. If we truly want to entrench democracy in America then let's do it in New York City on February 15th at High noon at the U.N.. I have no fear of these nit wits for I am defending the lives of my three children and my one grand child.

I say to George Bush and his High Alert "NUTS" And I Mean It
