PBS does it again - BE AFRAID AMERICA (english)
25 Apr 2003
Modified: 27 Apr 2003
PBS ( Pentagon Broadcasting System) does it again. Tonight on Frontline we heard the all too often repeated message Washington bureaucracy thrives on: BE AFRAID AMERICA! BE VERY AFRAID!!!!

Now it's CYBER WAR. If we don't give Washington tons of money to protect and surveil the Internet, why it could well be the end of civilization itself!!!!! No doubt Michael Moore is literally pulling his hair out.

The enemy is coming at us through unprotected airports. They're coming at us with anthrax through the unprotected mail. And surely they are coming at us through the World Wide Web.

You know what, if I leave my house today without an armored escort, anyone who pulled up alongside of me could very well successfully attack me. And this goes for almost any other regular American. We don't worry about this obvious vulnerability though because we know we haven't done anything to provoke such a violent occurrence.

What I find totally repugnant and inexcusable is that our government friendly media, like the good ol' Pentagon Broadcasting System, goes on and on about how we must empower the government in order to protect us, but they never ask the question which should be being asked above all others: Why the fuck are so many people out to attack us in the first place?

Maybe if our greedy arrogant friends in Washington weren't so busy murdering and pillaging nations around the globe in order to establish an American Empire, we might actually have folks who were eager to help our country grow and prosper, not try and bring us to our knees.

But this question is never seriously explored. After all, it doesn't need to be. The all-knowing, all-powerful George Bush II has spoken. Our enemies hate us because they are jealous. That's it. No more discussion needed.

One of these days we'll have a major media channel which will constantly question authority instead of deliver the government line. Until then, those in Washington, such as Richard Perle with his investments in security firms, will be laughing all the way to the bank.

Connecting the Dots

A group of young men moved into our apartment building. We didn’t know they were trying to burn it down. They took classes in fire fighting to learn the buildings weaknesses to fire. They told their instructors they didn’t need to know how to put fires out just how to start them. The instructors called the police. Detectives told the police chief about the plot and said that they should go to our building and interview everyone studying arson. The chief refused and reassigned them to parking patrol.

Other police departments heard about the arsonists and reported the plan to the chief who did nothing. They also called the mayors office. Some one called 911 and repeatedly reported the arsonist’s intentions. Frustrated detctives went to other police departments looking for help stopping the fire. A lot of people suddenly took out huge fire insurance policies on our building.

The fire killed everyone and changed our town forever. Anyone who asked why would someone want to kill so many people, why the police did nothing to stop it, and who collected insurance money on it were sent fire bombs. Some bombs went off at the post office and killed postmen.

The police chief rushed to the worst slum in the city and demolished the poorest building where some of the arsonist had once stayed. The residents there had gotten religion and refused to let a highway be built thru their homes for nothing in return. The police chief killed lots of people and put lots of people in prison. Everyone he killed he called an arsonist. He then had companies start building the highway.

The police chief then surrounded another apartment building he raided years ago. The chief had used the gang that ruled this project to fight battles for him to get control the streets. He had sold the biggest thug there lots of guns and fire bombs to attack another project that had kicked the police out of their neighborhood.

The police chief got out his bull horn and yelled to the crowd “We know he’s got guns so were going in to take him out.” Neighbors were confused and scared so he yelled, “Oh, we think he knew the arsonists to.” Terrified people in the crowd yelled “Kill all the arsonists”.

The police chief then burned the building down residence and all. The stench of burning flesh was overpowered by the smell of asphalt from the company trucks waiting to pave over the rubble.
