Knocked down, not out

Okay, I'm over the "shock and awe," Dorothy! I'm weathering the tornado that blew through my marriage, and I am moving on alone down that Yellowbrick Road to Oz, hopefully picking up the Scarecrow (mind), the Tin Man (heart) and the Lion (courage) along the way.

Agents Smith, Smith and Smith have not been completely successful in taking me out, although I must say they did a damn good job of putting me in a whole lot of pain and misery, which has shut me up for a number of months now. Curious that all the problems with hubby started about the same time I was really getting going on the 'ol blog here. Then, Neo, just when I started really making some meaningful contribution as a member of a certain internet research group that studies many of the topics I write about, all hell broke loose at home, throwing me into the pit of negative emotion, out of which I've only just begun to crawl.

Oh, oh, and Alice, last summer, as all of this hoopla with my husband was beginning to flare up, my handle, "Star Dust," was used in two different variations to disparage this same internet research group on another web forum, causing suspicion within the group (classic COINTELPRO tactics: cause dissent, suspicion and mistrust within the target group, attack individual members of the group to scare them off or prevent them from participating, etc.). My guess is the Architects had also hoped to draw me into the forum discussion, in which I decided was not in anyone's best interest for me to participate, especially since that very same day I had been viciously attacked, via a string of e-mails, by a psychopathic co-worker. I was in way too emotional a state to deal with this latest attack, except to assure the e-group that it was not "moi" making these posts -- someone had stolen my handle -- or several variations thereof, anyway.

If you want to see these COINTELPRO tactics at work, just look at how "Signs of the Times," an alternative news organization, is currently being attacked. Laura Knight Jadczyk writes about the attacks from on today's Signs and on her blog at

Now, you may be thinking about now, "Boy, Neo, she's a bit paranoid and delusional, don't ya' think?" Well, when you put the evidence together and look at it objectively, it does appear there are forces afoot to stop me from waking up, writing this blog and participating in the research group. Call it the Architects and their Agents and Programs, call it the General Law, call it the Predator, call it Lucifer -- it is the force that keeps us asleep and imprisoned in the Matrix. It must be struggled against to awaken, to emerge from our mechanical slumber.

So, will this series of attacks stop me from doing these things, Dorothy? "No way," I say. "Bring it on! Do your worst! I'm not giving up!" I couldn't possibly sink any lower than I've already been for the past seven or eight months. Well, I guess I could be "extraordinairily renditioned" to a prison in Bulgaria -- that probably would be sinking lower. Yeah, for sure that would be lower!

But, enough about me, it's really time to get back to work ... so very much has happened in the Fascist States of America since I last posted.

BushCo has been busy planning more war against Iran and Syria. Our pathetic, gutless, compromised Congress recently renewed support for the illegal wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, authorizing billions of dollars to further maim, kill and torture innocent people. These same people, who are supposed to represent us, also just reauthorized the Patriot Act, which continues to allow government spying on own its own citizens (also evidenced by Bush ordering warrantless wiretapping of U.S. citizens through the NSA) and the lock-up of enemy combatants without access to attorneys, without charges, without trial. Am I living in a free country? I don't think so, Alice!

Oh, and now that Bush has stacked the Supreme Court with right-wing evangelists, we're sure to see a further crack down on civil rights, not to mention that it now gives the Neocons complete control over all three branches of government -- just what the Architects ordered -- a police state.

Why Congress will not bring impeachment proceedings against this administration is beyond my comprehension, Neo! The lies that Bush and his feifdom have told far, far outweigh the perjury Bill Clinton may have committed in testifying about his sex life, yet Congress was oh-so-very-quick to bring impeachment proceedings against him for lying about SEX. My heavens, people! Where are our priorities? This administration is committing GRAVE ATROCITIES based on LIES, and Congress does nothing, nada, zip, just keeps going along with the lies, funding the lies, fueling the lies ... and so it is and so it will be ... it seems.

I read a political button recently that said, "If you aren't outraged, you're not paying attention!" Well, I'm paying attention, and I'm absolutely outraged that my tax dollars are going to fund illegal wars, to fund more prisons in Iraq instead of real help in reconstructing a country we've destroyed, to fund political payoffs to an oil cartel that is now reaping record profits under this administration, to fund illegal wiretapping of U.S. citizens, oh, and there are so many other reasons to demand that this administration step down that I could fill pages.

The only conclusion one can reach at this point is that the U.S. government has gone completely mad, and the Maddest Hatter is at the helm. Time to seriously plan an exit strategy, Neo!

Let me take you back to to the summer of 1989. After having fought a brutal war in which around 2 million Iraqi and Iranian military forces and civilians were killed. In this war gas attacks were frequent on both sides. The iraqi military was supported, with armaments, logistics, weapons of mass destruction, by the United States. In the fall of 1984 the U.S. switched to support the side that was winning, the Iranians. Sending arms and logistics to both sides with the hope that the Iranians would hold serve and win.
The result was a virtual draw.
During the above mentioned summer of 1989, George Bush 1, decided to play geo-politics and up the ante for world domination of oil .
He met with Kuwaiti "black" intelligence officiers,
and Saudi leaders, to pitch his plan.
Use Kuwait as a staging field to trap Saddam, and then isolate him enough so he would be overthrown. This would strengthen the oil profits of the Saudi sheiks,create astronomical profits
for Kuwaiti and Western elite investors, neutralize Sadamm and put in a puppet government receptive to the whims of American and Western oil hegemony.
During this time Kuwaiti officials traveled to California to purchase three slant drilling machines.
About a month later they mysteriously appeared in the disputed strip of oil fields, that was Iraq's possession, but annexed by Kuwaiti with American and Saudi help.
During a 15 month period the Kuwaiti slant drilling project stole 7.5 billion dollars of Iraqi crude from oil fields beyond the border of this disputed zone, directly in Iraq.
When Saddam complained about this international crime enough, and made overtures to several key U.S. state department officials, the plot was set.
O.K.-wink, wink-go into your disputed field, take it back and re-seize your assets-we won't stop you or make a big deal about it.
In the interim before this planned attack on Kuwait-the C.I.A. recruited several key military officials who commanded four battalions of iraqi soldiers. These officials job was to direct an attack that was aimed at Kuwait city-bypassing the oil fields, to take that territory-so the conditions would be set to surround these main troops-not allowing Saddam to withdraw.
Saddam's intention was clearly not to invade Kuwait proper-but to invade the disputed oil field.
When the recruited Iraqi military agents reached Kuwait city-they set up enclaves surrounding the city-and began to slowly go a.w.o.l. into Saudi territory. These recruits were given refuge and protection.
Those military officals with their troops, who countermanded the decision to go to Kuwait city- a total of about 100- returned to Baghdad to cop a plea with Saddam.
Saddam could not trust these leaders-and felt they were deserters who were afraid to fight, eventhough they swore allegiance to him, and pleaded that he believe that they were following his orders, and not the other recruited officiers- so he executed all of them.
Five thing followed:
1) Saddam snokered the coalition by using the massive divergence of the hundreds of oil well fires to escape being captured or overthrown.
2) The cease-fire and sanctions regime took over-by setting up resolutions that were transparently impossible to fully comply with-eventhough, through most of the seven years Saddam stuck to the letter and spirit of most of the restrictions of the numerous resolutions.
3) Draconian sanctions-and brutal bombings-killed 1 million iraqi's.
4) After seeing the uselessness of maintaining his arsenal of WMD's in 1992, Saddam put a permanent end to all production of these weapons. During that time not one atom of these materials were made by the iraqi government.
5) So here we go-we know he has no weapons-we know he is blood-thirstly opposed to any form,movement, or idea of a jihadist Islamo fascist
design-we know he has tons of oil and we still got him in a cornor. So what do we do-invade-steal his oil-retrieve the dream of the Bush 1 doctrine, to overthrow Saddam-and let the wolves in to pick the bones clean.

Small tyrants and murderous thugs like Saddam can never compare with those who crown these thugs and tyrants, and then dispose of them when they have no value.

A just war can only be fought in self-defense of the liberties and freedom of a conscioulsy accepting multitude.
A war fought from the boardrooms of the Empire for profit and power,. without the mandate of the multitude, can never be just.
