When entering the “theatre of war” it is always useful to know where the exit is and what constitutes victory. Nobody “plans to fail” , but a lot of idiots “fail to plan”!! …..and with no plans ,thier actions are just responses , and are so predictable ,the terrorists actually control the theatre of war!
Some people are just too stupid to learn from thier mistakes and it is a definition of insanity to repeat an action and expect a different result. The war with Libya seems to be just as “well planned” and though out!…our leaders must be either incredibly stupid , insane or liars that wish to spread death and destruction for profit!
CHANGE YOU CAN BELIEVE IN?….OR JUST BEEN FOOLED AGAIN?
THESE ACCOMPLISHED MEN……
In the case of Ronald Dumsfeld and big Dick Cheney we where given a plan of victory in a 7 day cakewalk ending with the locals showering us in flowers , these guys have been watching to many Hollywood war movies!OR they where liars from the start just out to grab power and make a fast buck …..and if you swallowed thier BS ,then you too are an idiot and YOU HAVE BEEN OUTSMARTED BY THE “TERRORISTS”!!
YES THE TERRORISTS ARE ABOUT TO ACHIEVE THIER PLANNED VICTORY…TO BANKRUPT THE USA!!
One reason the “terrorists” have accomplished thier mission is that our government representatives ,misunderstood the objective and also seemed to be working WITH THE TERRORISTS!! Bush ,Cheney,Blair and the boys thought it was about our “freedoms” , so they have been flat-out removing our freedoms and setting up a “big brother” society ,……. I am waiting for them to introduce Sharia law ,to try and placate the terrorists, while all the time they tell us they will NOT negociate with terrorists!……YES that is obvious , you just implement exactly what they want, you remove our freedoms and bankrupt the nation!! WELL DONE!
With corrupt idiots like these ,WE WHERE DOOMED FROM THE START!
Al-Jazeera releases full transcript of al Qaeda leader’s tape
Monday, November 1, 2004 Posted: 8:07 PM EST — — The Arabic-language network Al-Jazeera released a full transcript Monday of the most recent videotape from Osama bin Laden in which the head of al Qaeda said his group’s goal is to force America into bankruptcy.
Al-Jazeera aired portions of the videotape Friday but released the full transcript of the entire tape on its Web site Monday.
“We are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy. Allah willing, and nothing is too great for Allah,” bin Laden said in the transcript.
He said the mujahedeen fighters did the same thing to the Soviet Union in Afghanistan in the 1980s, “using guerrilla warfare and the war of attrition to fight tyrannical superpowers.”
“We, alongside the mujahedeen, bled Russia for 10 years until it went bankrupt and was forced to withdraw in defeat,” bin Laden said.
He also said al Qaeda has found it “easy for us to provoke and bait this administration.”
“All that we have to do is to send two mujahedeen to the furthest point east to raise a piece of cloth on which is written al Qaeda, in order to make generals race there to cause America to suffer human, economic and political losses without their achieving anything of note other than some benefits for their private corporations,” bin Laden said.
Al-Jazeera executives said they decided to post the entire speech because rumors were circulating that the network omitted parts that “had direct threats toward specific states, which was totally untrue.”
“We chose the most newsworthy parts of the address and aired them. The rest was used in lower thirds in graphics format,” said one official.
U.S. intelligence officials Monday confirmed that the transcript made public Monday by Al-Jazeera was a complete one.
As part of the “bleed-until-bankruptcy plan,” bin Laden cited a British estimate that it cost al Qaeda about $500,000 to carry out the attacks of September 11, 2001, an amount that he said paled in comparison with the costs incurred by the United States.
“Every dollar of al Qaeda defeated a million dollars, by the permission of Allah, besides the loss of a huge number of jobs,” he said. “As for the economic deficit, it has reached record astronomical numbers estimated to total more than a trillion dollars.
The total U.S. national debt is more than $7 trillion. The U.S. federal deficit was $413 billion in 2004, according to the Treasury Department.
“It is true that this shows that al Qaeda has gained, but on the other hand it shows that the Bush administration has also gained, something that anyone who looks at the size of the contracts acquired by the shady Bush administration-linked mega-corporations, like Halliburton and its kind, will be convinced.
“And it all shows that the real loser is you,” he said. “It is the American people and their economy.”
As for President Bush’s Iraq policy, Bin Laden said, “the darkness of black gold blurred his vision and insight, and he gave priority to private interests over the public interests of America.
“So the war went ahead, the death toll rose, the American economy bled, and Bush became embroiled in the swamps of Iraq that threaten his future,” bin Laden said.
U.S. government officials said Friday that the tape appeared to be authentic and recently made. It was the first videotaped message from the al Qaeda leader in nearly three years.

In reality ,I am giving the politions the benefit of the doubt. I honestly believe that our “democratic government representatives” are mostly EVIL and CORRUPT ,the rest are just a mixture of the stupid ,the greedy ,in insecure ,the power hungry , the delusional and the megalomaniacs OR a varied collection of the scum of society, its the scum that floats to the surface…….. IMHO 911 was an inside job. It was a coup by finacial and ideological evil bastards,enabled by the stupid ,the gulible,the cowardly and the blackmailed!
LETS FACE IT FOLKS, EITHER 911 AND 7/7 WHERE CARRIED OUT BY ELEMENTS WITHIN OUR OWN GOVERNMENTS OR OUR LEADERS REALLY ARE THAT COMPLETETLY USELESS ,THAT THEY HAVE MANGEDE TO CATCH ZERO TERRORISTS AND HAVE STRIPPED US OF OUR FREEDOMS AND BANKRUPTED THE NATION IN THE PROCESS
TOTAL DEFEAT!!…….UNLESS YOU ARE STILL LISTENING TO OUR CLUELESS ,CORRUPT AND USLESS GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES!
TWAT(The War Against Terror) IS A LIE!
WAR VETERAN SPEAKS OUT!!
We are told we are fighting terrorists; the real terrorist was me and the real terrorism is in this occupation.
Those who send us to war do not have to pull a trigger, or lob a mortal round.
They don’t have to fight the war, they merely have to sell the war.
They need a public who is willing to send their soldiers in the harms way.
They need soldiers who are willing to kill and be killed without question.
They can spend millions on a single bomb
THE BAILOUT IS A CON…A FINANCIAL COUP
MODERN WAR IS A RACKET
Instead of listening to lying cowardly politions that have never been to war ,ultimately these accomplished men ,would rather start WWIII than admit they where wrong or decieved or blackmailed!! PLEASE ,please listen to honest brave soldiers that know what they are talking about!!
I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its stupidity.
Excerpt from “The Chance for Peace Address,” April 16, 1953:
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.
This world in arms is not spending money alone.
It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people.
This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.
“War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe,as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people.Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.”
I spent 33 years (in the Marines)…most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism…
I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City (Bank) boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the rape of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street…
In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. I had a swell racket. I was rewarded with honors, medals, promotions. I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was operate in three city districts. The Marines operated on three continents – General Smedley Butler.
US GENERAL SAYS “THEY” PLAN TO TAKE OVER ARAB AND AFRICAN COUNTRIES FOR OIL
They planned this along time ago and with the recent unrest and revolutions happening in north Africa and the middle east Former General Wesley Clark of the U.S. Army talks openly about the memo he saw when Bush was president.
WE HAVE ALREADY LOST THIS WAR!! OUR “HUMANITARIAN WAR” HAS CAUSED A HUMANITARIAN CRISIS!!! …AND OUR TAXPAYER FUNDED INVASION FORCE WILL ONLY FACE A MILLION ARMED DEMOCRACTIC SECULAR CIVILIAN LYBIANS , A LOCAL MILITIA ARMY ,WE CANNOT BEAT IT!!….SO ,WE CAN ONLY LOOSE OR COMMIT GENOCIDE ….WHICH WOULD NOT BE A HUMANITARIAN SOLUTION, SO WE ARE IN A LOOSE /LOOSE SITUATION THANKS TO CAMERON ,HAGUE AND THE UK MURDEROUS MUPPET SHOW!!
(Reuters) – Libya’s government has begun distributing arms to more than one million people and will complete the operation within hours, the state news agency reported on Sunday.
Jana news agency quoted sources in Libya’s defense ministry as saying they “expected the operation to end in the next hours to arm more than a million men and women.”
Libyan War: Humanitarian Disaster, West Getting Bogged Down In Africa
BEIJING: With no end in sight the situation is turning into a humanitarian disaster with far-reaching consequences.
British Mission to Libya: “No Evidence of Gaddafi Violence”
by Tom Rayner
The Libyan government has renewed its call for independent fact-finding experts to come to the country to assess allegations of violence against civilians.
Speaking to Sky News, deputy foreign minister Khalid Kaim said: “We are asking for professional fact-finding missions.
It also follows the surprise finding of a British campaign group who claimed they had seen ‘no evidence’ that Colonel Gaddafi’s forces had attacked, bombed or killed any civilians in western Libya, despite widespread condemnation of the regime from organisations such as the UN, the African Court of Human Rights and the International Criminal Court.
Libya: Another Neocon War
by David Swanson
The bit about the credibility of the United Nations is really cute coming from a government that invaded Iraq in 2003 – despite UN opposition and for the express purpose (among others) of proving the UN irrelevant. This also comes from the same government that just this month refused to allow the UN special rapporteur to visit a US prisoner named Bradley Manning to verify that he is not being tortured. How does that maintain UN credibility? And how exactly does authorising the CIA to violate the UN arms embargo in Libya maintain UN credibility? How does violating the UN ban on “a foreign occupation force of any form” in Libya maintain UN credibility?
The United States was in the business of supplying weapons to Gaddafi up until the moment it got into the business of supplying weapons to his opponents. In 2009, Britain, France and other European states sold Libya over $470m-worth of weapons. Our wars tend to be fought against our own weapons, and yet we go on arming everyone. The United States can no more intervene in Yemen or Bahrain or Saudi Arabia than in Libya. We are arming those dictatorships. In fact, to win the support of Saudi Arabia for its “intervention” in Libya, the US gave its approval for Saudi Arabia to send troops into Bahrain to attack civilians, a policy that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton publicly defended.
The “humanitarian intervention” in Libya, meanwhile, whatever civilians it may have begun by protecting, immediately killed other civilians with its bombs and immediately shifted from its defensive justification to attacking retreating troops and participating in a civil war. The United States has very likely used depleted uranium weapons in Libya, leading American journalist Dave Lindorff to remark:
“It would be a tragic irony if rebels in Libya, after calling for assistance from the US and other Nato countries, succeeded in overthrowing the country’s long-time tyrant Gaddafi, only to have their country contaminated by uranium dust – the fate already suffered by the peoples of Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan and Kosovo.”
Irony is one word for it. Another is hypocrisy. Clearly, the military power of the west is not driven by humanitarian concerns.
It will also be interesting to see whether Africom, the Pentagon’s Africa Command, now based in Europe, establishes its headquarters on the continent for which it is named. We don’t know what other motivations are at work: concerns over immigration to Europe? Desires to test weapons? War profiteering? Political calculations? Irrational lust for power? Overcompensation for having failed to turn against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak until after he’d been unseated?
What exactly do we intend to achieve in Lybia? It already has a MORE DEMOCRATIC POLITICAL SYSTEM THAN THE UK, USA OR EU! Its a DIRECT (TRUE) DEMOCRACY .It had the highest living standards in Africa!
THE REAL REASON FOR WAR IN LYBIA
The Lies Behind the West’s War on Libya
By Jean-Paul Pougala
African Monetary Fund, African Central Bank, African Investment Bank
The US$30 billion frozen by Mr Obama belong to the Libyan Central Bank and had been earmarked as the Libyan contribution to three key projects which would add the finishing touches to the African federation – the African
Investment Bank in Syrte, Libya, the establishment in 2011 of the African Monetary Fund to be based in Yaounde with a US$42 billion capital fund and the Abuja-based African Central Bank in Nigeria which when it starts printing African money will ring the death knell for the CFA franc through which Paris has been able to maintain its hold on some African countries for the last fifty years. It is easy to understand the French wrath against Gaddafi.
The African Monetary Fund is expected to totally supplant the African activities of the International Monetary Fund which, with only US$25 billion, was able to bring an entire continent to its knees and make it swallow questionable privatisation like forcing African countries to move from public to private monopolies. No surprise then that on 16-17 December 2010, the Africans unanimously rejected attempts by Western countries to join the African Monetary Fund, saying it was open only to African nations.
It is increasingly obvious that after Libya, the western coalition will go after Algeria, because apart from its huge energy resources, the country has cash reserves of around €150 billion. This is what lures the countries that are bombing Libya and they all have one thing in common – they are practically bankrupt. The USA alone, has a staggering debt of $US14,000 billion, France, Great Britain and Italy each have a US$2,000 billion public deficit compared to less than US$400 billion in public debt for 46 African countries combined.
Inciting spurious wars in Africa in the hope that this will revitalise their economies which are sinking ever more into the doldrums will ultimately hasten the western decline
Financial Heist of the Century: Confiscating Libya’s Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWF)
by Manlio Dinucci
The objective of the war against Libya is not just its oil reserves (now estimated at 60 billion barrels), which are the greatest in Africa and whose extraction costs are among the lowest in the world, nor the natural gas reserves of which are estimated at about 1,500 billion cubic meters. In the crosshairs of “willing” of the operation “Unified Protector” there are sovereign wealth funds, capital that the Libyan state has invested abroad.
The Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) manages sovereign wealth funds estimated at about $70 billion U.S., rising to more than $150 billion if you include foreign investments of the Central Bank and other bodies. But it might be more. Even if they are lower than those of Saudi Arabia or Kuwait, Libyan sovereign wealth funds have been characterized by their rapid growth. When LIA was established in 2006, it had $40 billion at its disposal. In just five years, LIA has invested over one hundred companies in North Africa, Asia, Europe, the U.S. and South America: holding, banking, real estate, industries, oil companies and others.
In Italy, the main Libyan investments are those in UniCredit Bank (of which LIA and the Libyan Central Bank hold 7.5 percent), Finmeccanica (2 percent) and ENI (1 percent), these and other investments (including 7.5 percent of the Juventus Football Club) have a significance not as much economically (they amount to some $5.4 billion) as politically.
Libya, after Washington removed it from the blacklist of “rogue states,” has sought to carve out a space at the international level focusing on “diplomacy of sovereign wealth funds.” Once the U.S. and the EU lifted the embargo in 2004 and the big oil companies returned to the country, Tripoli was able to maintain a trade surplus of about $30 billion per year which was used largely to make foreign investments. The management of sovereign funds has however created a new mechanism of power and corruption in the hands of ministers and senior officials, which probably in part escaped the control of the Gadhafi himself: This is confirmed by the fact that, in 2009, he proposed that the 30 billion in oil revenues go “directly to the Libyan people.” This aggravated the fractures within the Libyan government.
U.S. and European ruling circles focused on these funds, so that before carrying out a military attack on Libya to get their hands on its energy wealth, they took over the Libyan sovereign wealth funds. Facilitating this operation is the representative of the Libyan Investment Authority, Mohamed Layas himself: as revealed in a cable published by WikiLeaks. On January 20 Layas informed the U.S. ambassador in Tripoli that LIA had deposited $32 billion in U.S. banks. Five weeks later, on February 28, the U.S. Treasury “froze” these accounts. According to official statements, this is “the largest sum ever blocked in the United States,” which Washington held “in trust for the future of Libya.” It will in fact serve as an injection of capital into the U.S. economy, which is more and more in debt. A few days later, the EU “froze” around 45 billion Euros of Libyan funds.
MEANWHILE IN REAL ISLAMIC DICTATORSHIPS, LIKE SAUDI ARABIA , BAHRAIN AND YEMEN WHERE PEOPLE LIVE IN REAL POVERTY NOT SEEN IN LYBIA , REAL DEMOCRACY PROTESTORS FACE REAL GENOCIDE AND A REAL HUMANITARIAN CRISIS. BUT THESE PROTESTORS ARE NOT ISLAMIC TERRORISTS LIKE IN LYBIA!
SO OUR DEMOCRATIC HUMANITARIAN LEADERS ,SELL THE DICTATORS WEAPONS AND SUPPORT THE AUTHORITARIAN ISLAMIC REGIMES AND SUPPRESS SECULAR DEMOCRACY!!
Bahrain’s Secret Terror
Desperate emails speak of ‘genocide’ as doctors who have treated injured protesters are rounded up
By Jeremy Laurance, Health Editor
April 21, 2011 “The Independent” — The intimidation and detention of doctors treating dying and injured pro-democracy protesters in Bahrain is revealed today in a series of chilling emails obtained by The Independent.
At least 32 doctors, including surgeons, physicians, paediatricians and obstetricians, have been arrested and detained by Bahrain’s police in the last month in a campaign of intimidation that runs directly counter to the Geneva Convention guaranteeing medical care to people wounded in conflict. Doctors around the world have expressed their shock and outrage.
One doctor, an intensive care specialist, was held after she was photographed weeping over a dead protester. Another was arrested in the theatre room while operating on a patient
