If anybody has any doubts whose Peaceful Kerry represents read this; John Kerry, the Democratic Party presidential candidate, has cosponsored the Belarus Democracy Act that provides for the promotion of democracy, human rights, and the rule of law in Belarus, The bill was introduced in the House of Representatives by Representative Christopher Smith (Republican, New Jersey) in February 2003 and the Senate by Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell (Republican, Colorado) If enacted, the legislation would in particular impose a travel ban on senior Belarusian officials, prohibit any financial assistance to the Belarusian government, and require U.S. representatives in all international financial institutions to oppose delivery of any nonhumanitarian to Belarus. http://www.rferl.org...sline/3-cee.asp

This is life in the jungle, not always the fittest wins, but the most cunning. In this case, the fox--playing the "victim"--has used anti-Semitism so the lion can feed better. It's the symbiotic relationship always present among predators, sometimes trough open colaboration, sometimes through cunning and deceit. Of course the Jewish little people is as much a victim as anyone else...;)

The last paragraph shows they are very naive in expecting help from the big lion, or just submitting to the fact that he's the only power left. A true solution though would come through the solidarity of all the little people against all predators...:cool:

For immediate Release: July 9, 2004
Contact person: Rabbi Joseph Dershowitz

Website: TrueTorahJews.org

Bold Jewry is looking for brave statements from open-minded journalists who could help defend us from our tragic enemies, camouflaged as our spokesmen, our defenders and friends: the Zionist so-called "state of Israel" and their sympathizers abroad.

Theodor Herzl (1860-1904), the founder of modern Zionism, recognized that anti-Semitism would further his cause, the creation of a separate state for Jews. To solve the Jewish Question, he maintained "we must, above all, make it an international political issue." Herzl wrote that Zionism offered the world a welcome "final solution of the Jewish question." In his "Diaries", page 19, Herzl stated "Anti-Semites will become our surest friends, anti-Semitic countries our allies."

Zionism was supported by the German SS and Gestapo. Hitler himself personally supported Zionism. During the 1930's, in cooperation with the German authorities, Zionist groups organized a network of some 40 camps throughout Germany where prospective settlers were trained for their new lives in Palestine. As late as 1942 Zionists operated at least one of these officially authorized "Kibbutz" training camps over which flew the blue and white banner which would one day be adopted as the national flag of "Israel".

The Transfer Agreement (which promoted the emigration of German Jews to Palestine) implemented in 1933 and abandoned at the beginning of WWII is an important example of the cooperation between Hitler's Germany and international Zionism. Through this agreement, Hitler's Third Reich did more than any other government during the 1930's to support Jewish development in Palestine and further the Zionist goals.

Hitler and the Zionists had a common goal: to create a world Jewish Ghetto as a solution to the Jewish Question.

The Zionist so-called "World Jewish Congress" declared war on the country of Germany, knowing that it would affect their Jewish brothers residing in that country who would be left without protection. When others tried to help them escape to other countries, the Zionist movement took actions which caused those countries to lock their doors to Jewish immigration (read more in the books, "Perfidy" and "Min Hametzer"). As a result of the Zionist influence five ships of Jewish refugees from Germany arriving in the United States were turned back to the gas chambers.:(

The fundamental aim of the Zionist movement has been not to save Jewish lives but to create a "Jewish state" in Palestine.

On December 7, 1938, Ben Gurion, the first head of the Zionist -state of Israel- declared "If I knew it was possible to save all the children in Germany by taking them to England, and only half of the children by taking them to Eretz Israel, I would choose the second solution. For we must take into account not only the lives of these children but also the history of the people of Israel."

On August 31, 1949, Ben Gurion stated: "Although we have realized our dream of creating a Jewish State, we are only at the beginning. There are still only 900,000 Jews in Israel, whereas the majority of the Jewish people still remains abroad. Our future task is to bring all the Jews to Israel."

Of the two and a half million Jews seeking refuge from the Nazis between 1935 and 1943, less than 9% went to settle in Palestine. The vast majority, 75%, went to the Soviet Union. In the mid-70's, more people emigrated out of Israel than came in. The only surges of immigration to the Zionist state have occurred during anti-Semitic threats and persecution in foreign countries. It follows that for the Zionist state to achieve its goal of a Jewish world ghetto anti-Semitism must be promoted and encouraged, and as we have seen, by acts of violence if necessary.

"To attain its practical objectives, Zionism hopes it will be able to collaborate with a government that is fundamentally hostile to the Jews". v "A Holocaust Reader", p. 155.

The use of anti-Semitism as a tool to coerce immigration to the Zionist state continues to the present day:

Prime Minister Sharon has stated that anti-Semitism is on the rise and that the only hope for the safety of Jews is to move to Israel under the protection of the Zionist state. "The best solution to anti-Semitism is immigration to Israel. It is the only place on Earth where Jews can live as Jews," he said.

Those who continue to call the so-called "state of Israel" the "Jewish State" are not only promoting Zionism which is contrary to the beliefs of true Judaism, but also endorsing the promotion of worldwide anti-Semitism. In doing so they are endangering the lives of traditional Jews and denying their civil liberties and human rights.

When the British foreign secretary, Arthur Balfour (sponsor of the 1905 Aliens Act to restrict Jewish immigration to the UK), wanted the British government to commit itself to a Jewish homeland in Palestine, his declaration was delayed - not by anti-Semites but by leading figures in the British Jewish community. They included a Jewish member of the cabinet who called Balfour's pro-Zionism "anti-Semitic in result". In contrast, a great statesman like Secretary of State Colin Powell, a supporter of traditional Judaism, has the courage to separate Judaism from Zionism and to acknowledge that speaking out against the actions of the Zionist state is not "anti-Semitism".:confused:

We call upon our leaders in Washington to disassociate the actions of the Zionist state from traditional Judaism by no longer referring to "Israel" as the "Jewish State" but as "the Zionist State" and to speak out against the Zionist actions which promote anti-Semitism.

This guy, Greg Palast, is always hitting the lion hard. He seems to be a real lion slayer...;)

GIVE IT BACK, GEORGE: THE LAY LOOT THAT BOUGHT WHITE HOUSE
Bush and Republicans Should Give Up Ill-Gotten Gains
by Greg Palast

When the feds swoop down and cuff racketeers, they also load the vans
with all the perp's ill-gotten gains: stacks of cash, BMWs, whatever.
Their associates have to cough up the goodies too: lady friends must give
up their diamond rocks.

Under the racketeering law, RICO, even before a verdict, anything
bought with the proceeds of the crime goes into the public treasury.

But there seems to be special treatment afforded those who loaded up on
the 'bennies' of Ken Lay's crimes. If the G-men don't know where the
tainted loot is cached, try this address: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Ask
for George or Dick.

Ken Lay and his Enron team are the Number One political career donors
to George W. Bush. Mr. Lay and his Mrs., with no money to pay back
bilked creditors, still managed to personally put up $100,000 for George's
inaugural Ball plus $793,110 for personal donations to Republicans.
Lay's Enron team dropped $4.2 million into the party that let Enron party.

OK now, Mr. President, give it back - the millions stuffed in the
pockets of the Republican campaign kitty stolen from his Enron retirees.

And what else did Ken Lay buy with the money stolen from California
electricity customers? Answer: the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
Just before George Bush moved to Washington, Kenny-Boy handed his
hand-picked president-to-be the name of the man Ken wanted as Chairman of the
commission charged with investigating Enron's thievery. In a heartbeat,
George Bush appointed Ken's boy, Pat Wood.

Think about that: the criminal gets to pick the police chief. Well,
George, give it back. Dump Wood and end the "de-criminalization" of
electricity price-gouging that you and Cheney and Wood laughably call
"de-regulation." Give us back the government Lay bought with crime cash.

And while we're gathering up the ill-gotten loot, let's stop by Brother
Jeb's. The Governor of Florida picked up a cool $2 million from a
Houston fundraiser at the home of Enron's former president long AFTER the
company went bankrupt. Enron, not incidentally, obtained half a billion
of Florida state pension money -- which has now disappeared down the
Enron rat-hole.

And Mr. Vice-President, don't you also have something to give back? In
secret meetings with Dick Cheney in the Veep's bunker prior to the
inauguration and after, you let Ken and his cohorts secretly draft the
nation's energy plan - taking a short break to eye oil field maps of Iraq.
Let us remember that the President's sticky-fingered brothers Neil and
Marvin were on Enron's payroll, hired to sell pipelines to the Saudis.
The Saudis didn't bite, but maybe a captive Iraq would be more pliant.

So, Mr. Law and Order President, please follow the law and give up the
Energy Plan that Mr. Lay bought with other people's money.

When I worked as a racketeering investigator for government, nothing
was spared, including houses bought with purloined loot. Let there be no
exception here. It's time to tape up the White House gate and hang the
sign: "Crime Scene: Property to be Confiscated. Vacate Premises
Immediately."

I got Pat Robinson mixed up with Pat Buchanan a few posts back.

Why China will prevail:
recently they have been caught out selling Chinese products in
copy New Zealand container/brands because of the reputation of NZ products in that field.
Come to think of it NZ gained a open trade deal with China a few months back. So thats what free trade is!

Whats the difference between the past and present govts of Iraq?
Who appointed the leader is not one of them.
Twelve thousand bureacrats of the Hussein govt have been re-employed plus a few of the Baath Party.
I wonder if they will use a Hussein standin for the trail but
bring the real one to the death sentence. Would ensure nothing is said that could cause an embarasement/reveal anything vital.

Belarus is obviously one of the "non-integrating gap" countries
that needs to be disciplined into "the functioning core".
Some thought Saddam went there to hide because he got on so well with the leader.

Zionists etc:

Transfer Agreement 1933- an interesting date that. Same year
the Jews held an international meeting in Amsterdam and declaired a trade war on Germany, about 6 months after Hitler
came to office.
What was Hitler promised in return for turning anti-semitic, given they gave him a primary excuse making trade war in the depths of a depression? We have all been shown Nazi persecution of
jewish businesses but not the trigger, the hurting of german businesses from the embargo.
The Jewsnotzionist site give more information re the zionists
shutting the door on the german/european jews so they would be getting the treatment for propoganda to promote the creation of Israel after the war.
I noticed it was two and half million Jews referred to, where was the 6 million which has always been challenged and ignored.
It is true Hitler in regards achievments is second to no one as
a great zionist in regards the creation of Israel. And their methods are still making him look a hero as the ultimate role-model.
There is no doubt about your comment Donq that the little Jews are as much a victim of zionists as of anybody. In fact the greatest threat to the lion is the revolt of the jewish gheto, meaning the single most important thing that could happen for genuine world peace.

It is logical that top British Jews delayed the Balfour Declaration
because for it to be promoted at the same time as the Alien Act
would have blown the cover of the anti-semitic policy of the zionists. People would see they are trying to force jews into palestine.
Leaving the Alien Act to stand alone the zionists have referred
to it and its parallel act in the US and I expect Canada, Australia and NZ as anti-semitism in its propoganda war to bulster the
psychological jewish gheto (currently undergoing a huge revival)
and to add to the psychological stigma of being not pro-jewish
as far as the west goes. ( given not being pro-jewish or disagreeing is anti-semitism, one doesnt have to say anything bad even if truthfull about them to be anti)

I have to disagree with Powell being a great statesman, while I
applaud him for recognising the true jew from the imposter, he lied to the UN to serve zionist policy in Iraq.

It has been claimed that German Jewish bankers caused germany to loose the first world war (which the nazis referred to as having been stabbed in the back) in exchange for the rights to palestine
ie. to gain the zionist state, which according to Golda Meir was about oil and gas around the region not anything biblical. Further that the jews acknowledge their role in the war outcome in 1922
in order to defuse the potential of rumours and denial.
Didnt make any difference because it is zionist policy to promote anti-semitism.
I recall many years ago hearing about an anti-semitic campaign
in Sydney Australia, distributing pamphletes, having been traced back to a building owned by a jew!
Last year French Jews were encouraged to escape anti-semitic France to Israel. There was another country that was encouraged as well. Meanwhile they have been leaving Israel in worrying numbers and who can blame them.

Liberia has also been suspended because it will not allow monitoring of its diamond trade.

The diamonds were sold at cut-rate prices in Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates, rather than in the more heavily policed markets of Antwerp, Belgium and Tel Aviv, Israel,

The suspension of Congo was "necessary to safeguard the credibility and integrity" of international efforts to block black-market conflict diamonds from the 60-billion-dollar annual diamond business, .
"The findings of the review mission are clear: the Republic of Congo cannot account for the origin of large quantities of rough diamonds that it is officially exporting," , Eventually, countries like Lebanon and Congo, and those that produce blood diamonds, will not be able to profitably sell diamonds and the trade will stop," intercepts

Hi Bader
Nice, nice post. Very enlightening and fair. Many people are fooled into anti-Semitism, when they should be anti-Israeli or anti-Zionist, ie. anti-lion.

But if the Jewish revolt was symbolically important, their major contribution to world peace may just be 'the Kibbutz.' In it they have succesfully lived without the lion. More productive, better life. I'm sure more than one Jew can give us a hand in bringing similar 'no-lion' institutions to the world. Of course, without the name and with all the improvements deemed necessary. They would be centered not on religion or nationalism but on 'cooperation' and 'quality of life.' They could have a motto: "No lion territory."

I emphasize this because the 'no lion no problem' slogan may only be applicable to communities of 'like-minded' people. Although this competion may drive the bad lion into behaving like a tamed lion. It's a win-win proposition, and COMPETITION IS THE NAME OF THE GAME.;)

Reagan made mistakes. OK, maybe many big mistakes, but he got a winning smile. What do you do with him?

Right, make him a symbol of the conservative agenda and ignore the facts. "Reagan: an American Icon" runs one magazine cover. How long before being sanctified?:confused:

WHILE REAGAN NAPPED: RONNIE, OSAMA AND THE CHIN DEFENSE
by Greg Palast

New York, Tuesday, June 14 - Vinnie the Chin had a great alibi. The
New York mob capo shuffled down the street in his bathrobe, unshaved,
drooling out the side of his mouth. When he got busted, he pleaded he was
too gone-in-the-head to know about the Cosa Nostra running rackets from
his candy shop.

Ronald Reagan out-Chinned the Chin. When caught paying ransom to
Khomeini and his Hizbollah terrorists, Reagan did his aw-shucks I'm just a
ga-ga grandpa routine, "I told the American people I did not trade arms
for hostages. My heart tells me that's true, but the facts tell me it
is not." Oh, OK then.

If it were Jimmy Carter who'd been caught in such an act of treason --
arming our enemy -- Republicans would still be roasting his flesh
today. You know it and I know it.

The Reagan Right has used the late President's funeral for a shameless
political victory dance, carefully wiping the blood off the historical
files. Before the truth is interred, let us have a moment of
remembrance for the dubious doings in the White House while Reagan napped:

* South Africa's government went on a murder spree to insure that
Black folk would never vote. Reagan blessed that police state with a
smile, refusing, despite the pleas of Nobel laureate Bishop Desmond Tutu, to
take even the small measure of limited trade sanctions against the evil
white empire.

* Reagan's Secretary of Interior, James Watt, launched a biological
pogrom against trees. Before he was indicted, the Environmental
Protection agency became a country club for polluters' lobbyists. Reagan's
heart told him it wasn't true, but the screeching chain saws said
otherwise.

* AIDS was identified in 1981. Reagan's official policy was to hit
the research snooze button. Our president did not mention nor act on the
epidemic until 1987 -- 30,000 funerals too late. The gay death toll
brought glee to Reagan's apocalyptic allies, the mewling mullahs of the
Christian Right. (But As the Good Book warns, doing unto others has a
price: the same fruitcake fanatics that slowed AIDS research also
blocked the stem cell studies that might have saved the dying president from
the horrors of Alzheimer's.)

* Reagan politically fathered those rascally Rosemary's Babies of the
Bush junta: Dick Cheney, Ronnie's appropriately titled Whip in
Congress; Paul Wolfowitz, the kind of Dr. Strangelove that scares even Henry
Kissinger; John Poindexter, convicted of abetting Contra terrorists
while in the Reagan White House, later Bush's first Total Information
Awareness chieftain; and Reagan Treasury Secretary James Baker, who tried
his damnedest to bankrupt America for Ron, and now, from his Bush White
House office, is doing the same for Iraq as "special advisor" to the
conquered nation.

But there can be no more dangerous creature to have burbled out of the
Reagan Frankenstein factory than his Cold War comrade, Osama bin Laden.

In November 2001, with my BBC television and Guardian newspaper
colleagues, I reported that, during the Reagan presidency, a US embassy
official in Saudi Arabia was, in his own words, "repeatedly ordered by
high-level State Department officials to issue visas to unqualified
applicants."

Sounds icky but not too notable until you learn the identities of these
"applicants." They claimed to be engineering students who, when
queried as to what school they attended, answered they "could not remember."
They didn't have to. The unlikely "engineers" had little helpers in
the Reagan Administration.

After investigation, the career diplomat, attorney Michael Springmann,
learned they were, "recruits, rounded up by Osama bin Laden, to [bring
to] the United States for terrorist training by the CIA. They would
then be returned to Afghanistan to fight against the then-Soviets."

Uh, oh. They returned to Afghanistan all right. But terrorists are
like homing pigeons -- they have a bad habit of coming home to roost. In
spook-world, it's known as "blow back." The Reagan-bin Laden killer
brigade, skilled in such crafts as skinning Russian prisoners alive, blew
back with a sickening vengeance.

That story ran world wide at the top of the BBC nightly news -- except
in the USA where it bounced off the electronic Berlin Wall. Our media
was careful not to wake America from its nap, to hide the deeply
disturbing truths behind Grandpa Gipper's grin.

Ronald Reagan's loss of memory was, undeniably, a great personal
tragedy. But lost in this week's circus of fakery and fawning for a failed
president, is the greater national tragedy: America's amnesia, an
unforgivable forgetting, a great sleep of reason from which we have yet to
awaken, even after September 11.

The "cooperation" would be a key factor in the abundance of the
fruit of peace- the desert (current world of waste and want) to
blossem (with social justice, economic democracy-the ability to vote with ones feet having the means in the back pocket to do so).
And the "profits" not going to an elite or the state but to the
members of the enterprise. (social justice and eco-demo).
More than one jew, there must be heaps and building a country from scratch in part has to have its innovative skills and develoments which regardless of the political background cannot be denied.
All it needs is a modern day Moses to lead the people out from the Pharoah elite.
Zechariah said Jerusalem would become a heavy (burdon) stone
for all the peoples, all who lift it will be severly injured.
All the leaders would be struck with blindness, bewilderment and madness, (Sharon and Arafat!) and that the clans of Judah (currently second class citizens) would become a firepot among pieces of wood and a flaming torch among sheaves, and all the nations who come against Jerusalem would be destroyed.
It would appear that the first in the queue would be the ashkenazi who are imposters and foreigners who suppress the Torah (semites) people.
So maybe the protesting Jews will get hotter and hotter.

When everyone has economic democracy in their back pocket/handbag the extent of "competition" that will flourish will
be unknown to this present world.

Visas were still being issued to unqualified/turned down applicants after Sept 11. Somebody/persons at the top of US immigration are over-ruling the declined applications and I expect
that comes from within the Whitehouse. Reminds me of Operation Paperclip, wasnt that about secreting key Nazi into the American
systems?

The Prime Minister of New Zealand has just given Israel a backhander after two Israeli intelligence men who tried to fraudulently obtain NZ passports were sentenced to 6 months jail, by requiring Israeli diplomatic staff in future to apply for visas
because Israel failed to provide an apology and an explanation for breaching NZ sovereignty when both countries have been friendly for many years- friends dont do that the PM said. The appointment of a new ambasador to NZ (now vacant) may take a while. Brave lady.
I wonder if a call will go out to all Jewish NZers to flee to Israel for safety from anti-semitism?

The suspension of the Congo is about controlling prices which
impact on futures and options. No competition please.

Donq; some inconsistences ;
@ Ronald Reagan also brought about the problems we have today. Smaller government means less oversight and enforcement of federal regulations --an open-door policy for businesses to do what they want. The systems of outsourcing, shipping jobs overseas --better bottom lines, and higher profits. @
This I understand as a glorification of federal regulation but in next post
@But if the Jewish revolt was symbolically important, their major contribution to world peace may just be 'the Kibbutz.'@

I see you like cooperation as a best environment for human beings.
Do you recommend different type for governments for US and Israel?


and Donq again; @. the New York Times

but I see in news; Citigroup 2nd-Qtr Net Falls 73% on Legal Costs)
July 15 (Bloomberg) -- Citigroup Inc., the world's biggest bank, said second-quarter profit fell 73 percent after it set aside $4.95 billion to pay for legal costs. in a statement in the New York -based company http://quote.bloombe...gRu.U&refer=hom

True is, that only in the countries where minority grasps the power , people are left behind to meet their death. When power is in hand of the national government it bows to their enemies because life of their own is the most precious thing. In case of minority government, life of citizens are only a tool.

A UN-backed watchdog reported weak controls over Iraqi oil riches under the US-led coalition, including use of the money for a no-bid Halliburton contract. The International Advisory and Monitoring Board (IAMB) released a critical private audit of the Development Fund of Iraq Iraqi oil income and the balance of frozen Iraqi assets and the UN oil-for-food-program.
The audit by accountants KPMG found that :
-- A lack of "meters" to measure Iraqi oil production, despite repeated requests for them by the IAMB, made it impossible to say how much Iraqi oil had been smuggled out of the country.
-- The US-led Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA), which handed over power to an interim Iraqi government June 28, had inadequate accounting systems and poor record keeping.
-- Iraqi spending ministries had insufficient accounting and payroll records, and they strayed from rules requiring open, competitive tenders for contracts funded with oil money.
Known oil proceeds, reported frozen assets and transfers from the UN oil-for-food program had been properly and transparently accounted for by the development fund, the KPMG audit said.
"The single qualification to the opinion was that an unknown quantity of oil was smuggled out of Iraq following the war, resulting in a loss of oil revenue," it said.
A second KPMG audit covering the first half of 2004 is underway.
A review of the 2003 audit showed controls over the Iraqi oil industry were insufficient to provide "reasonable assurance" for the completeness of Iraqi oil sales, the IAMB found.
It also was impossible to be sure oil money was spent on the purposes intended, said the IAMB, which has officials from the United Nations International Monetary Fund World Bankd Arab Fund for Social and Economic Development.
The board raised particular concern over the use of Iraqi oil money for "sole-sourced contracts," which had not been put out to competitive tender.
The US-led coalition informed the IAMB that oil money had been used for a 1.4-billion-dollar, no-bid contract for Halliburton, an oil services company, which was run by Vice President Richard Cheney from 1995 to 2000.
Jean-Pierre Halbwachs, who represents the United Nations on the board, said he wrote to Paul Bremer, then overseer of Iraq, to ask for a copy of the audit into the Halliburton contract.
The board also requested a list of all the no-bid contracts paid for with oil money, and access to the relevant audits, he said.
So far, it had heard nothing.
"There have been, we are told, other sole-source contracts (besides Halliburton). To whom, and the amount, we are not aware,"
Since the creation of the Development Fund of Iraq, it has raked in Iraqi oil export revenue amounting to 11.1 billion dollars, more than half of the development fund's total cash income of 20.6 billion dollars.
The fund now holds about 7.5 billion dollars.
A UN Security Council resolution endorsing Iraqi "full sovereignty" still subjects oil revenues to the IAMB's oversight.
The draft Iraq budget for 2004, drawn up last October, foresaw oil income of 12.4 billion dollars this year, 19.3 billion dollars in 2005 and 20.1 billion dollars in 2005.
Those forecasts were based on an oil price of 21 dollars a barrel. http://news.yahoo.co...ng_040716002826

It is not surprise then , that Thailand as well is leaving Iraq. :)
War on terrorism can not be cover for stealing the Iraq oil revenue. :)

<The "cooperation" would be a key factor in the abundance of the
fruit of peace- the desert (current world of waste and want) to
blossem (with social justice, economic democracy-the ability to vote with ones feet having the means in the back pocket to do so).
And the "profits" not going to an elite or the state but to the
members of the enterprise. (social justice and eco-demo).
More than one jew, there must be heaps and building a country from scratch in part has to have its innovative skills and develoments which regardless of the political background cannot be denied.
All it needs is a modern day Moses to lead the people out from the Pharoah elite.>

Howdy Bader
Exactly. And we can even establish different degrees of cooperation, from the more communitarian, easy in-easy out kibbutz, to the more individualistic, settled coops like that of Mondragon, which require an investment in both time and money.

Metaphorically, a Moses is needed. But we must not wait for one man to save us because: a) That he may not come at all; B) If he comes, he will quickly be assassinated; and c) That he may betray the movement, as it happens more often than not.

Of course, that may require the rise of another actor mostly absent from history. The rise of the little people themselves. They will have to stop the hypocrisy, the feeding of the lion. 'DON'T FEED THE LION' CAN BE THE START OF A CAMPAIGN. South African lion was tamed. Some are asking for similar approach to Israeli lion. The Corporation would be most responsive to it...;)

<Zechariah said Jerusalem would become a heavy (burdon) stone
for all the peoples, all who lift it will be severly injured.
All the leaders would be struck with blindness, bewilderment and madness, (Sharon and Arafat!) and that the clans of Judah (currently second class citizens) would become a firepot among pieces of wood and a flaming torch among sheaves, and all the nations who come against Jerusalem would be destroyed.
It would appear that the first in the queue would be the ashkenazi who are imposters and foreigners who suppress the Torah (semites) people.
So maybe the protesting Jews will get hotter and hotter.>

I know, it's the good lion denouncing the impostor. However the impostor got many is very clever in the art of camouflage, and many don't see it. So our job is to expose the beast which you put so well before. Still remember?;)

"If we simplified the LION down to a con-man, he can be disarmed by public exposure to his tricks- thus people are getting the awareness and enlightenment you and I know society needs.

It is not idealistic to do this, but merely practical. There are identifiable systems, ideologies, policies, and identifiable persons and identifiable organizations and institutions etc that make up, build/sustain the LION. They are in abundance being exposed on the net. We can't stop at the animals farm stage and expect the LION to go away. We have to move on and expose the who, how and what that makes up the LION." -Bader

<When everyone has economic democracy in their back pocket/handbag the extent of "competition" that will flourish will
be unknown to this present world.>

Exactly there's so much wealth squandered in wars or stupid projects, or concentrated on a few hands, that such wealth would every human being to have what they need and what they deserve, as no leveling is sought. If you work 8 hours, you have more; if you work 4, you got less. And this possibility of fewer hours is really necessary to put everybody to work. The ones who choose to do nothing should be squezeed out. No homeless...;)

We need more time for both relaxation and democracy. Now the little people only got time for survival. The need to hoard for leaner times should be phased out. That too is part of the problem with the jungle. You must work and work and work so your kids one can come out of the jungle, perhaps they themselves becoming predators.:confused:

<The suspension of the Congo is about controlling prices which
impact on futures and options. No competition please.>

"The greatest sin is COMPETITION," so the lion says...;)

This is a case of the Little Lion dragging the Big Lion into conflict. These greedy, power-hungry little lions often cause the whole jungle to be dragged into war. The Big Lion is either too stupid or too hungry himself to resist the temptation...:confused:

Ex-general: War planners did not expect insurgency
By Stephen J. Hedges Washington Bureau

One of the nation's top generals during the invasion of Iraq (news - web sites) said Thursday that the insurgency took U.S. military leaders by surprise because they believed the assurances of Iraqi opposition groups and defectors that American forces would be welcomed.

Gen. John Keane, who served as the Army's vice chief of staff during the war and who has since retired, told the House Armed Services Committee: "We did not see it coming. And we were not properly prepared and organized to deal with it. . . . Many of us got seduced by the Iraqi exiles in terms of what the outcome would be."

Keane's testimony echoes a recent admission by Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, who told the House committee last month that the Bush administration mistakenly believed the capture of top Iraqi leaders would quell insurgent violence.

Keane said an insurgency in Iraq after the end of major combat was discussed during months of war planning but was not made a priority.

@ Ronald Reagan also brought about the problems we have today. Smaller government means less oversight and enforcement of federal regulations --an open-door policy for businesses to do what they want. The systems of outsourcing, shipping jobs overseas --better bottom lines, and higher profits. @

<This I understand as a glorification of federal regulation but in next post>

Howdy Woj
I don't glorify federal regulation, but the "regulation-free" environment the lion proposes only applies to himself. The lion is free to outsource, but the little people are not FREE TO MOVE. This a basic tenet of Adam Smith's capitalism or good capitalism. The way it is, it's freedom for the lion but slavery of the little people. But the greatest tenet of capitalism that's broken today is the LACK OF COMPETITION. And that would include the Corporation, the small business as well as the COOPERATIVES. Should it not?

Some regulations can be good indeed though. Just compare the smooth-flowing, fast Autobahn to the stupid, chaotic, law-of the jungle American highways. For example, giving the finger to another driver is penalized under German regulation, but zigzaging with an SUV around smaller vehicles is perfectly legal under American regulation. Which "freedom" would you rather have?

@But if the Jewish revolt was symbolically important, their major contribution to world peace may just be 'the Kibbutz.'@

< I see you like cooperation as a best environment for human beings.
Do you recommend different type for governments for US and Israel?>

Of course, different people/cultures, different solutions.;)

@Ronald Reagan out-Chinned the Chin. When caught paying ransom to Khomeini and his Hizbollah terrorists, Reagan did his aw-shucks I'm just a
ga-ga grandpa routine, "I told the American people I did not trade arms for hostages. My heart tells me that's true, but the facts tell me it is not." @

<True is, that only in the countries where minority grasps the power , people are left behind to meet their death. When power is in hand of the national government it bows to their enemies because life of their own is the most precious thing. In case of minority government, life of citizens are only a tool.>

Like I said before, COMPETION WITH A SAFETY NET. I compared it to the Moscow Circus: High acrobatics with a safety net for those who fail...:cool:
