Commentary :: Environment
NUKE-EM - the Neo-cons say
26 Sep 2006
by: D. Burbeck
The west is actually trying to eliminate the Arab nations with nuclear weapons.
Our military is quite aware of the long term effects of uranium weapons (1), make
no mistake about that. Our soldiers are kept clueless of course, but that's a
story for another day.

The US, UK, and Israeli Governments are, since 1991 with Gulf War 1,
carrying out nuclear wars but without the mushroom clouds. The extent of
the immediate damage is not as colossal as an H-bomb, but the long term
damage to the environment and the populations IS equivalent.

I am an American, and I should feel good knowing that the US Govt. is protecting
its interests - OIL - with absolute lethal force so that I can drive my SUV for as
long and as far as I want. But I don't own an SUV and I do not feel good about it.
It is HORRIBLE. It is EXTREMELY horrible to attempt to wipe out a race of people
with the slow death of nuclear weapons.

What is the worst thing the neo-cons could do to protect their interests (their profits)?
Nuking their enemies and stealing their oil? Well, that is exactly what they are doing with
uranium weapons (so-called "depleted" uranium) that do not produce the mega-bang,
but DO produce the everlasting radiation exposure which will be devastating to the
populations of the Middle East, and also around the globe to a somewhat lesser extent, FOR
BILLIONS OF YEARS!

Ask your next door neighbor if he believes that the industrial war complex
is trying to exterminate the Arab population with nuclear weapons. He will get a laugh
out of that. And that only proves how powerful a corrupt propagandistic corporate media
can be, along with 200 channels of irrelevant TV to watch.

Give George W. a break.

The neo-cons knew at least two things in 2000. 1) They were in complete control of
the US election with the electronic voting machines. 2) That G. W. would be willing
to take the heat for an illegal invasion of Iraq because Saddam tried to murder his dad.

The neo-cons are very good at what they do - protect their profits. And what profits
there are! It is astronomical. Oil companies making.......well, I don't want to bore you
with figures, I'm sure you've heard the reports. IT IS LUDICROUS - ABSOLUTELY
LUDICROUS! No person on this earth needs a $400 million retirement package, especially
when they have already made hundreds of millions of dollars. ABSOLUTELY HIDEOUS!

But they are getting away with this horrendous crap because the US public is asleep at
the wheel. It's really true, we have too much going on in our lives with kids and hundreds
of channels to watch to pay attention to boring politics. And that is not a coincidence.

Back in the 60's when there were only the three main channels to watch, a very large
portion of the populace were watching a show called 60 Minutes. And when they zeroed
in on a corporate or government scandal, heads would role the following Monday. Hence,
cable TV came about to lessen the power of investigative journalism.

Now, no one seems interested, and the corrupt envelope is consequently pushed further and
further. To the point that our Govt was to some extent complicit in the 9/11 attacks
according to New York City Firemen, Police and EMS workers who were on the scene
and who have been threatened that they will lose their pensions if they speak about the
"numerous explosions" they heard as the Trade Centers were falling. (2)

These explosions can be heard on the sound track of the documentary film
entitled "9/11" where a camera man was in Trade Center One as Trade Center Two
came down. It was clearly the sound of explosions of a controlled demolition, although the
narrator left it totally up to the listener to decide. Evidence has also been procured
from the 9/11 rubble that proves thermate, a demolition explosive, was used to bring
the buildings down.

We didn't listen to Eisenhower's warning about the industrial war complex, so essentially,
we gave them an inch, and they took a mile. And oh what a profitable mile it was. It is
very doubtful that they will ever lose control of the US and possibly even of world affairs
now. So, sit back and watch what a wonderful world these greedy scum bags have brought
about and continue to bring about with their "greed and world-dominance-driven policies", and
their desire to annihilate their enemies with no effort at diplomacy; knowing that
global warming is well on its way, they don't feel the need to spend any of their money
to try to avoid it or correct past mistakes.
