Osama bin Laden had the evil done.

But Bush instead stripped Saddam of his powers,

He forgot Osama brought down the Twin Towers.

Republicans For Dean


Email from Canada

"The group, the Project for the New American Century, or PNAC, was founded in 1997. Among its supporters were three Republican former officials who were sitting out the Democratic presidency of Bill Clinton: Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney and Paul Wolfowitz.
In open letters to Clinton and GOP congressional leaders the next year, the group called for "the removal of Saddam Hussein's regime from power"
and a shift toward a more assertive U.S. policy in the Middle East, including the use of force if necessary to unseat Saddam.
And in a report just before the 2000 election that would bring Bush to power, the group predicted that the shift would come about slowly, unless there were "some catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a new Pearl Harbor." *****
That event came on Sept. 11, 2001. By that time, Cheney was vice president, Rumsfeld was secretary of defense, and Wolfowitz his deputy at the Pentagon.
The next morning - before it was even clear who was behind the attacks - Rumsfeld insisted at a Cabinet meeting that Saddam's Iraq should be "a principal target of the first round of terrorism," according to Bob Woodward's book Bush At War."

***** THERE IS AN EERIE SIMILARITY HERE TO THE SUGGESTIONS THAT PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT ALLOWED PEARL HARBOUR TO HAPPEN TO JUSTIFY THE US'S ENTRY INTO WWII AND THAT BRITISH PRIME MINISTER WINSTON CHURCHILL ALLOWED THE BOMBING OF COVENTRY TO HAPPEN SO AS NOT TO REVEAL THAT THE BRITS HAD CRACKED THE GERMAN'S ENIGMA CODE MACHINE. EVEN IF THEY DID, THEIR ACTIONS, WHILE AWFUL TO CONTEMPLATE, WOULD STILL BE WHOLLY JUSTIFIED AS A MEANS TO RIDDING THE WORLD OF TWO REGIMES THAT CAUSED SO MUCH DEATH (APPROX. 55 MILLION PEOPLE) AND DESTRUCTION DURING THEIR BRIEF EXISTENCE AND SUBJECTED MUCH OF EUROPE TO POSTWAR STALINIST MISERY FOR THE NEXT 50 YEARS.

PERHAPS THE INVESTIGATION OF 9/11 SHOULD FOCUS ON WHETHER THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION MIGHT HAVE KNOWN WHAT WAS COMING COURTESY OF AL QUEDA AND, IF SO, WHEN THEY KNEW AND WHETHER OR NOT THEY ALLOWED IT TO HAPPEN TO GIVE CREDENCE TO THE UNRESERVED "ATTACK IRAQ" DESIRES OF THE PNAC GANG.


I am a Canadian who fully supported the Canadian government's decision to stay out of the illegal Bush/Blair actions in Iraq. I know some elements of the Bush administration (mainly the PNAC crew) have characterized us as a result as being disloyal to our friends (i.e. the US & the UK aka George Bush and Tony Blair). Nothing could be further from the truth. When the cause is right, Canada can be counted upon to stand by its friends. The Bushies that trash us conveniently forget that Canadians fought and died alongside Brits and Americans in WWI, WWII, Korea, the Gulf War (Episode 1) and are even now policing Afghanistan and Bosnia.

I like your site - keep up the good work. I also like what I see in Howard Dean - let's hope he wins in 2004 and restores sanity to the White House.

Best regards

Dear Ken,

Thank you for writing.  You put things into perspective in your eloquent Canadian way.  Very well stated.

I really like Howard Dean also.  I am just waiting for the GOPigs to get out on the airwaves and try to smear him as they did to Senator John McCain, Senator Max Cleland and the countless Americans who disagree with the Bushies.

The real war has yet to begin.

 THIS DAY IN HISTORY

September 11,  1973 -- Allende dies in coup

...Chile's armed forces stage a coup d'état against the government of President Salvador Allende, the first democratically elected Marxist leader in Latin America. Allende retreated with his supporters to La Moneda, the fortress-like presidential palace in Santiago, which was surrounded by tanks and infantry and bombed by air force jets. Allende survived the aerial attack but then apparently shot himself to death as troops stormed the burning palace, reportedly using an automatic rifle given to him as a gift by Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

The U.S. government and its Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had worked for three years to foment a coup against Allende, who was regarded by the Nixon administration as a threat to democracy in Chile and Latin America. Ironically, the democratically elected Allende was succeeded by the brutal dictator General Augusto Pinochet, who ruled over Chile with an iron fist for the next 17 years.

After the victory of Allende and his leftist coalition, U.S. President Richard Nixon summoned CIA Director Richard Helms to the White House and ordered him in no uncertain terms to prevent Allende from coming to power or to unseat him. Allende, after all, had threatened to nationalize U.S.-owned industries in Chile, and Nixon did not want another Fidel Castro coming to power in an American hemisphere during his watch. President Nixon authorized $10 million for the covert operation against Allende and instructed that it be carried out without the knowledge of the U.S. embassy in Chile.

With its mandate from Washington, the CIA attempted to bribe, coerce, and blackmail Chile's Congress and military into denying Allende the presidency, launched an international campaign of disinformation against Allende, and paid a right-wing general to assassinate General Rene Schneider, the chief of Chile's armed forces. Although a conservative, Schneider was staunchly opposed to a coup or any other military interference in Chile's democratic processes. He was murdered by a gang led by right-wing General Roberto Viaux. One month later, the group received a check for $35,000 from the CIA. Years later, the CIA would claim it only wanted Schneider kidnapped...

Hurricane Isabel is seen in the Atlantic in this September 10, 2003 satellite image. The powerful hurricane remained a Category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson scale early September 11, packing winds near 145 miles per hour as it continued to move westward, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. A 5-day forecast track shows the eye of Isabel veering just to the east of the Bahamas through early Tuesday.

 

Peace.
