CORruPtt media reported precursors Kuwait? (english)
21 Sep 2002

The July/August 2002 Z Magazine article History of Intervention by Larry Everest and Zmag/Everest notes some pre-historical significance yet to ever be widely mentioned on corp media.

Incidently on S1102 while on Boston's subway heading to Rolling Requiem in Jamaica Plain the train stopped near to Chinatown, and as usually in the case I expected a delay of a couple of minutes before an annoucement. But suddenly came on: "We are experiencing door problems". After we began moving again this time the train stoped for a planned moment (of silence -looking for a better description that downplays silence but elevates reflection, respect, etc.)

I was sitting there I would have rathered be where I was heading. I pulled out something from my bag, the above Z mag issue and opened to quite randomly to page 31 and read:

"The U.S. also encouraged Iraq's 1980 invasion of Iran. Over 1 million people were killed in the ensuing war, but it served U.S. purposes by weakening both sides and preventing them from causing trouble in nerby Gulf staes. Henry Kissinger summed up the U.S.'s cold-blooded attitude: "too bad they can't both loose".

The next time you hear someone proclain self-interests being along the lines of the U.S. handing out candy...

Also consider sharing this with your aunt and others who are receptibe but watch passive copr news and who still think that the U.S.in its citizens name only hands out goodies.
