‘The War you don’t see’ is a British Documentary Film released in 2010. Written, produced and directed by John Pilger, The film confronts mainstream media’s role played in war, from World War One through the destruction of Hiroshima, the Vietnam War and more recently the Iraq/Afghanistan as well as the Israel/Palenstine conflict.
“As weapons and propaganda become even more sophisticated, the nature of war is developing into an ‘electronic battlefield’ in which journalists play a key role, and civilians are the victims. But who is the real enemy?
John Pilger says in the film: “We journalists… have to be brave enough to defy those who seek our collusion in selling their latest bloody adventure in someone else’s country…”

Asteroids have in the past, been somewhere between ‘The Blue Screen of death’ and the ‘Reset button’ for earlier epochs such as the dinosaurs and mammals.
Now if we’d spent the money wasted on the war in Iraq on exploring space, we’d probably not have all our eggs in one basket… the question is, who’s going to supersede us if the unthinkable happens?

Prepped precocious princess perhaps, but at about her age, I, shortly after arriving in Britain, from Kenya via Norway, was forced by my non denominational school to attend church… I thought it was a load of bullshit, so I asked my mum to write me a note telling the school that they were not to force me to go to church.
Now considering that the Judaic, Christian and Muslim religions, all have as their earliest text the Old Testament, complete with the 10 Commandments, I shall judge them by their own Laws.
ONE: ‘You shall have no other gods before Me.’ – But money and or Power seems to be the exception.
SIX: ‘You shall not murder.’ – Well that one’s totally ignored it seems by all three of the aforementioned religions.
EIGHT: ‘You shall not steal.’ – This one’s broken again by the big three, Israel is steeling Palestine, the US, Iraq Oil, and Muslims stole 4 jets and flew 3 of them into 3 buildings.
NINE: ‘You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.’ – Well that’s a no brainer, they all lie constantly.
TEN: ‘You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.’ – That’s another no brainer, they’ve all used slaves which means they have either actively stolen other countries people, or they have bought stolen people.
That’s 5 out of 10 Commandments that seem to have little or no meaning for either the Judaic, Christian or Muslim religions… I wonder if our little prepped precocious princess could explain to our religious nutters the meaning of the word Hypocrisy… better make sure she has a guardian if she visits the Catholics, strange how celibacy seems to have led to sexual predatory behavior, or attracts it’s participants.
Here’s my favorite rule – Your silence is taken as consent.
Damn I forgot to have a go at Bill O’Reilly… it’s amazing how much money Murdoch is paying that individual who seems to have no brains, manners, conscious or guts.

Ain’t hindsight wonderful. When you look at the enormous effort to discredit the Democrats over Bill Clinton’s lack of self control and predatory sexual behavior, using what’s seen by many as an appalling misuse of Kenneth Starr’s position on the ‘Office of the Independent Counsel’, with the help of Linda Tripp, another Republican lackey, who somehow gets involved with Monica Lewinsky, to immobilize the Clinton Presidency, you wonder, is this what Democracy is about?
But it still took (in my opinion and many others) a corrupt election, with the aid of George W Bush’s brother, Florida Governor Jeb Bush, as well as Florida’s Secretary of State Katherine Harris, FOX TV (Rupert Murdoch) and the Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, to ensure that all the hard work of Karl Rove came to fruition.
All this was done so that Paul Wolfowitz and Co. could mount an attack on Iraq, who was falsely blamed both for 911 and having WMDs, just so they could get troops into Iraq, thereby controlling Iraq’s oil and giving them an added presence in the Middle East, with which it could control the various local area pipelines, and later mount further attacks on Iran and Afghanistan.
However, it was the BBC’s show Spooks that most eloquently put it all together for me. In the episode known as ‘Aftermath’, where Britain and America planned use climate change to their economic advantage, by the use of military force to capture major fuel sources such as coal and oil.
The plot went on to make the point, the various governments were going to only make a pretense of doing something about fighting global climate change, in actual fact they were going to let the world go to hell, and they were going to use their military might to ensure that they were in total control, and that a good percentage of the world’s population would perish… personally I always thought they would accomplish much the same by some sort of engineered Bird flu or what ever, it is after all, too many people that is at the root of all our problems.
So I guess in the next few years we’ll see if those who think like myself are right.

The only possible reason for an election to be falsified, is because someone has a vested interest in doing things that the majority of voters, or even non voters, would not want to happen… in a true democracy, it’s what the majority want that counts. Actually I’ll add to that last point, in a true democracy, it’s what the majority of the informed citizens want that counts, but since the majority of the media is controlled by the minority, who have a vested interest in maintaining the citizens ignorance, the majority are at a severe disadvantage.
OK I hear some of you say… Oh no not more conspiracy stuff. Well my answer to you is, what, do you think the minority is going to risk their positions to decisions made by the majority?
Do you think that the WMDs was a genuine mistake?
Do you think that you have heard the truth about 911? No I’m not saying it was an inside job per say, but with most crimes you have to look at who stood to gain from it. Well lets look at that, it’s a fair guess that the military industrialists gained probably a trillion dollars out of the ‘war on terror’.
The oil companies and Halliburton also benefited, I mean they now control Iraq’s oil and the value for their oil’s skyrocketed. The security side of things has also been improved as far as the minority is concerned… Blackwater is doing fine and the US Bill of rights and constitution has been flushed down the toilet by the Patriot Act.
But those who benefited most is the state of Israel and the big Banks, who are largely run by the Zionists. Most of the prompting and planning for the Iraq war was done long before 911, as indeed was the scrapping of the US Bill of rights and constitution… done largely by another Zionist Paul Wolfowitz and co.
Personally I believe the most likely culprits for 911 was Mossad. Saddam was no threat to the US… that’s a joke, what he was going to attack the US with Scud missiles with a range of barely 1,000km. No Saddam was a threat to Israel, just like Iran, not a big threat, but a threat nun the less. And an America as a true democracy is also a big threat to the minority.
Bev Harris and her co-investigators are outstanding Americans and should be supported. If you look carefully at the body language of Senator Kerry and those around him, in the context of what was happening. you can see there is something else afoot… remember also Kerry is like George W Bush a Skull & Bones man.

Robert Redford is another one of my heroes, a consummate actor, director, producer and supporter of up and coming actors, directors and producers of quality films. He’s also an ardent conservationist and critic of President Bush and vice president Cheney, the mental environmental vandals, who are now using the current Oil crises, to make a case for the drilling of National Parks… just so their sponsors can go on controlling the worlds energy.
Our problems now are caused by over 40 years of those ‘sponsors’ not just inaction; which in it’s self was a crime more than an act of incompetence, but for the other things which they will eventually be seen for what they really were, crimes against humanity. Amongst those crimes are, the shelving of pattens, which undoubtedly would have gone a long way to minimizing our current problems… and then there’s the current crimes committed against the Iraqi people.

Sooo much of what Kay says sounds not only plausible, but likely… it fits with so much that we know historically and it’s logical when viewed, through the ‘who’s making the money’ perspective.
OK about now the doubting Thomasis are carping on about conspiracy nuts. Well my answer to that is to first define conspiracy – A secret plan to achieve an evil or illegal end.
Now if you don’t think that the 3 Trillion odd dollars spent on the ‘War on Terror’ in Iraq; a country that had absolutely nothing to do with 911, is going to end up in the pockets of a handful of corporations run by an even smaller number of Banks and Finance organizations, and that the people running these organizations aren’t virtually untouchable and are run by fundamentally decent law abiding people, you must be on Prozac or something, really.
If you are paying attention, then you will have observed that the rich are getting much richer, the middle class; who could be wiped out by another ’29 type crash, is shrinking and the lower class is ever expanding, and that the ultimate end point for this ‘system’, must be that the planet will be controlled, literally, by a handful of people and that democracy will be even more irrelevant than it is now. Now do you really propose that that’s not by design, that conspiracy doesn’t describe that process?

Video: The Real News
In Australia they are saying petrol will be $2/liter (almost $8 a gallon) before the end of the year. You know it all seemed to happen so quickly after the Iraqi oil war, but in actual fact I remember a time back in the late 70’s when there was an oil scare and everybody started selling off their V8’s… funny thing though is, nobody it seemed, thought the oil would eventually jump drastically in price prior to it’s eventually running out.
Now you would expect that the powers that be, that own and run the oil (bankers and the like), would have seen it coming and made plans… but then they weren’t Robinson Crusoe. The CIA too, despite their budget somehow hadn’t noticed the USSR rupturing and were caught totally flat footed when ‘The Wall came down’. Some may find the aforementioned similarity a bit of a stretch I guess… perhaps I better explain, but first a little truism. ‘When your snout’s in the trough, the rim’s your horizon’.
In the case of the CIA, I guess they were busy lining their own pockets with drug money and the likes, bribing dictators, plotting and scheming, having such a good time doing all their wheeling and dealing, and they couldn’t see the forest for all those dam trees. Whilst in the case of the Oil companies they too were busy lining their own pockets, laundering the hundreds of billions of dollars of Drug money, bribing dictators, plotting and scheming, having such a good time doing all their wheeling and dealing, shelving patents etc. that they too missed the Elephant in the room.
See the problem is the people making the decisions, are all money focused, you know Bankers & Lawyers (spit on the ground), sooo few of them have any scientific back ground. Sure they have scientific staff, but the problem is that they either make up their own minds based on profit orientated thinking, or the scientists themselves are too busy telling their bosses what they know they want to hear.
I know this because I witnessed this sort of thinking first hand. Your paid to come up with solutions, after extensive studying and running tests you come up with a solution, you explain to the bosses their options… and then one of them asks you a question that’s sooo dumb, you start looking around for a camera or something, thinking your on ‘Candid Camera’. And whilst your brain’s trapped in some sort of loop trying to figure out, what the hell just happened, they neatly sidestep you, and later you find out that you just wasted a year or more and they probably used a Weegie board or something to come up with their answer.
Meanwhile ‘the powers that be’s’ other paid employees (the Politicians) are busy implementing the Bankers & Lawyers (spit on the ground) plans for world domination… I wonder if somewhere in this galaxy there isn’t some group of aliens running a ‘Big Brother’ type TV show, about this little microcosm we call Earth?
Oh by the way… GOOD ON YOU SPAIN!

This video shows how close the US is to being a police state. The lesson to be learnt from this video, is to record all dealings with authorities.
Here’s what I think, if it looks like the Neocons are going to lose control of the US government, they will use the Patriot act somehow to keep power… or they will pull another WMD on Iran this time. For the record, the fundamentalist government in Iran will eventually; if they are left alone, self destruct, since most Iranians, like the Iraqis are reasonable and intelligent, as apposed to most fundamentalist, whether they be Islamic, Hindu, Zionists or Christian, they are by the nature of their religions, unbelievably Stupid and totally Ignorant.

Regime change didn’t just happen in Iraq… corporations now have virtually no oversight and we are about to find out that not only did Communism not work, but neither does Capitalism, Democracy might if it were not for political donations.
