the new year arrived the opportunites for reversed speech expanded
dramatically. After all, you can't keep a politician away from
microphones for long. Our contributor Aquarius let me know that the
U.K.'s PM, Gordon Brown, had released a New Years message, and shortly
after that he'd done a short interview about Gaza. Both soundtracks
revealed good reversals, he said.
It didn't take long to discover that Gordon Brown had indeed spilled

what someone is expecting to happen. I've combed through hundreds of
reversals in the last two months, and none are as revealing as SOON -

had promised myself that I would not go all out until I had either a
firm hit on the location that is the target of the missile, or a really
strong indication of the timing. None the less, the following hit from
Junior convinced me that I simply couldn't wait any longer to take
action. Bush's photo-op was on Monday, January 5th, but I didn't find
the reversals until Wednesday, which was just two days ago....(...)
READY TO LAUNCH is self explanatory. HIDING IT IN THE SHOW most likely
refers to the whole Gambit operation, which is essentially invisible.
The action in Gaza is so convincing that it is difficult for most
people to entertain the idea
that it is merely preparing a global audience for
only real clues about timing, Brown's "week", which could be a
generalization, and THEIR SUNDAY which is awfully thin. Bush mentions
Condi Rice in the same breath, there's a reasonble chance he's thinking
that Condi was "there Sunday" and we just don't happen to know where
On the other hand, if we take it as I've written it, then
we can assume that he's thinking about the Jewish sabbath, or the
Islamic Sabath. That means either Saturday or Friday and we have no way
to tell which one it is.
But this is often the dilemma in this kind
of work. You want stronger information, but you reach a point where you
simply can't afford to ignore lesser items that could very well be
The point is this. I may have erred in thinking I
had the target date, but the fact that the Armageddon Plot is going to
succeed or fail in a very short time is solid reality.
Let's all keep in mind, too, that as far as this item is concerned, the
old saying that no news is good news is exactly right!
speaking of news, television coverage in the U.S. of the Gaza battle
stopped rather abruptly after a CNN reporter mentioned on Monday (1/5)
that a third of the Palestinian casualties that day were children. If
it wasn't for the announcement today that neither Israel nor Hamas
intended to observe the U.N. demand for a cease-fire, one would think
the battle was over.
For now, you must go to a site like CLG News to get the real story.
)) This is distinctly different from the Lebanon affair, in which the
strongly pro-Israel propaganda networks did a U-Turn for a month and
actually encouraged anger at the Zionists. It would have made the
Gambit story all the more convincing.
This time it seems they
don't care that much about opinion here at home. Perhaps they feel that
Americans are now so conditioned to see Islamic people as
crazy-dangerous that no cover story is needed inside the U.S. to set
the stage for the false-flag event.
And they're pretty busy right now building Obama's image as the
facing increasingly bad odds against saving anything at all.

told that the nuclear-tipped missile intended to trigger the invasion
of Iran was "ready to launch." We also noted that the only indications
we had regarding any date pointed to that very weekend.
everyone else, we waited to see what would happen, but news from Gaza
(if you could find any) actually seemed less warlike than the previous
week. As I learned this morning from audio collected on Friday, the
date may have referred to the false-flag operation moving to its final
phase. One thing remains certain: the deadly climax at the end of this
new phase is still to come.
weekend also caused some discussion here at The Project about our
expectations for the fictional scenario that the various governments
and their captive news networks will wrap around the surprise nuclear
blast over Israeli territory once it takes place. The Gaza situation is
simply not following the same script we saw in Lebanon, or in later
operations either. Even more puzzling has been the enormous
manipulation of broadcast news, which also is not following the
game-plan we expected to see.

report, I'll continue adding material to this page as it becomes
available. When it gets full, I'll just start on the next one.
Eventually I'll rewrite these pages to take out the blog effect and
create a single coherent report. Oh, one more thing. If you are not
sure about what Reversed Speech is, our how we obtain it, check out the
link at the top of the page.
I. The Release Message
weapons have their own rules and procedures, and even a covert
operation expected to remain ultra-secret forever must follow the
rules. I don't have the rule book myself, and I'm sure it's kept secret
as well. But after watching these guys go through the same steps a
number of times, some rules are fairly clear.
foremost, nukes are the most valuable thing on the planet. Not only are
they always kept secure, they remain in the care and custody of experts
until the very last moment before they are to be used. Supposedly, only
the President can authorize the release of a nuke into the hands of a
military officer who has orders to use it. The "release message" is
thus a key element, a milestone you might say, in these false-flag nuke
plots we've been following all along.
February, 2006, it was Dick Cheney who blurted out (in RS) that the
bomb that was to be used in the first attempt at Texas City had been
RELEASED to the team that would hide it on a ship docked near the
port's oil terminal. (See Russian Nuke Traced to Texas, p.2)
July of that year it was Tony Blair that informed us the same bomb that
had then been shipped to Israel had been RELEASED. (See August 2006 War
In November 2007 it was Ben Bernanke who told us BUSH
RELEASED IT before we even knew what the new target was! (See Iran
Invasion Recycled. This is the one where Bush complains that we caught
him every time.)
Friday we had no release message for the current operation. One would
think this would be a critical piece of evidence, and it certainly is.
Still, we are lucky (blessed, I think) to find what we do, whenever we
can. The missile we've been tracking could have been released over the
holidays, for instance, and with no one speaking before the public
there would have been no way for us to pick it up.
As luck would
have it, UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown has now let us know that the
nuclear-armed missile intended for Armageddon II has just been
officially released to the team that will actually launch it. Listen to
the sound clip below:...(...)
Brown's reversals from last week make it clear that he is expecting a
nuclear detonation (Hiroshima).
With the missile's release, all we can do is psychologically prepare
ourselves for the first use of nuclear weapons for corporate profit.

ARMAGEDDON MISSILE TO TRANSFORM INAUGURATION - AND OBAMA

Iran they are already burning Barrack Obama in effigy, recognizing that
he is simply the new Bush in blackface. Commentators here in the U.S.
have been gently approaching the same topic as they take note of
cabinet assignments, and policy statements that don't match what we all
heard on the campaign trail.
Responding to a situation that can't be hidden
much longer, CNN flashed a story title yesterday acknowledging the
issue: Obama Two Point Oh!
In last Friday's report on Armageddon
II, we noted George Bush had been told that the nuclear-tipped missile
intended to trigger the invasion of Iran was "ready to launch." We also
noted that the only dates that had surfaced in reversed speech seemed
to point to that very weekend. Like everyone else, we waited to see
what would happen, but news from Gaza (if you could find any) actually
seemed less warlike than the previous week.
Then, from reversed
speech, we learned that the Armageddon Missile had been "released" to
the team that would actually fire it.

of what we expect to happen. Interesting examples of reversed speech
that follow this plot to its success or failure will be

that the missile to be fired at Israel
has a nuclear warhead.
you are not sure about what Reversed Speech is, our how we obtain it,
check out the link at the top of this page. Because good RS is time
consuming, our postings will naturally be appearing a few days after
actual events. You will see, however, that we already have a pretty
good idea of what to expect, and the work itself will provide a good
history after the fact.
I. Rethinking the Probable Scenario
take a look now at how this plan is likely to unfold. I thought I had a
pretty good idea, but over the weekend it became obvious I was relying
too much on previous operations we'd uncovered, and not really noticing
how different this operation is from those in the past. There was also
a healthy dose of not being able to see the forest because of all the
trees in the way!
Here are the key items that had to be looked at with a fresh approach.
1. The Missile
years ago, when we first found that Junior and his bosses in Houston
were attempting to counterfeit a nuclear terrorist incident, the weapon
they had to work with was a small nuclear device which we reported as a
"baby nuke." These have to be hidden in the target area and detonated
by remote control. Even now they have several of these (converted from
Russian atomic canon shells, circa 1950) and unless they've given up on
them I expect to see two of them used in Iraq to regain control of the
They will simply say they arrived by missile from Iran, badly aimed at
American bases, and no one will disagree.
learned they were interested in missiles when a Navy intelligence team
attempted (twice) to steal an armed B-52 from Minot Air Force Base, but
there wasn't really any clue then about why missiles would be more
desirable than bombs. (Had to steal it so there would be no records.)
Nonetheless, when SEAL teams obtained four nuclear shells from a
Russian decommissioning facility,
the first item of business was to
convert one of them to ride in the nose cone of a refurbished Scud
missile the Brits had found in Iraq and kept secret.
command of General Betray-us the Scud missile, complete with launch
vehicle, was twice smuggled into Iran to play its role in a faked
Iranian missile launch. The second time it had to be blown up in the
desert while Bush watched from NSA headquarters, and we will probably
never know why. Now, of course, we have yet another missile in play,
but it's not being smuggled into Iran. Instead, it's been sent on a
slow journey by ship. According to recent RS, the ship arrived at its
destination last week
and is now tied up at a dock.
question was, how did they plan to "prove" the missile was fired from
Iran? Answer: That was last time. In the new plan this won't be
necessary. All they have to do is announce very firmly that whoever
fired the missile must have obtained the warhead from an imaginary
Iranian stockpile, and every captive news outlet in the world will back
them up. Remember, too, the official U.S. war plan states that if a
weapon of mass destruction is triggered here, or anyplace in the Middle
East that's supposed to be friendly,
then the U.S. will nuke the country of Iran regardless of what actually
Of course, one question you won't see asked any time soon is why Iran
would supply anyone with a nuclear weapon when
its use would guarantee their own destruction.
2. The Atrocities In Gaza
wrote in the previous report that the Gaza campaign seemed to be a copy
of Israel's vicious attack on Lebanon, an operation that we knew at the
time was merely the staged backdrop for a false-flag nuclear detonation
that eventually failed at the last minute. At that time, and only at
that time, U.S. media dropped their Israel-can-do-no-wrong stance, and
depicted the death and destruction in Lebanon day after day. This was
probably the first and only time the American public has ever seen
Middle East reality on a television screen.
The objective was to
paint a picture in which Western people could see how a nuclear event
might happen. They would understand how some Islamic state or
organization had become so insanely enraged that they would risk the
destruction of Iran just for the chance of striking a real blow at the
After all, a lot of people were beginning to feel the same way.
Lebanon campaign also allowed the Israeli army to reach full
mobilization in preparation for a dash into Syria (along with U.S.
combat brigades waiting on ships off Lebanese beaches) once the real
The Gaza story seemed pretty much the same as
Lebanon, and there is no shortage of outrageous atrocities. Supposedly
there are over a thousand dead, and many thousands more among the
burned, wounded and maimed. Property destruction is said to be
unbelievable. Yet much of the current information seems to be coming
from people standing on the Israeli side of the fence. The actual truth
could be much worse.
Gaza now differs from the Lebanon disaster
in a major way. When the media controllers realized that talk each day
of how many children had been killed by Israeli soldiers was beginning
to create the wrong impression they elected to censor the story almost
completely. In both the U.S. and the U.K. it has nearly dropped out of
sight for ten days or more. Clues are given that the affair could be
over relatively soon.
Of course, coverage may ramp up again as D-Day approaches.
pretty much confirmed via reversed speech that for the Israeli
government the Gaza incursion is a sham, and many others have noted
there is no real objective or prize to win. For myself, I was depending
on Gaza getting worse and worse as a major clue that the main event was
near. Why is this not happening?
Conclusion: setting the
psychological background for the missile launch is not the purpose of
the Gaza attack - at least not for Western audiences. However, remember
the motto of Mossad: "By way of deception, thou shalt do War."
The Gaza incursion allows Israel to call up her reserves
in stages, virtually unnoticed.
In this way the Israeli Defense Force will be almost fully mobilized,
gassed up and ready to go when the balloon goes up.
Seems pretty clever until you remember how many human beings had to be
killed or maimed to make it happen.
3. A Very Different Environment At Home
years ago Americans were fully programmed to accept that the Persian
Gulf oil grab was actually all about religious hatred by fundamentalist
Muslims against Christians. Washington, London, and major Western media
were pushing fear at the slightest opportunity. In that environment,
any sort of violent, insane act seemed quite possible.
people are already breathing a great sigh of relief that George Bush
and his gang of thugs and killers will soon be gone for good. All
things seem possible. Surely we can at least extract ourselves from the
tar pit in Iraq. After all, we got rid of Saddam, although we don't
quite remember why, and who cares
what kind of government they
have in some Middle Eastern hell hole? I certainly don't!
In fact, few Americans can think of a good
reason to still be in Afghanistan, either. Let the Afghans kill each
other off and be done with it! Of course, Obama's insistence that tens
of thousands of soldiers must be sent there
tomorrow is finally
raising some alarms.
None the less, Obama will surely save us. Let's all say that together.
Monday I watched an hour of CNN (actually more than I can stand) and
witnessed the most bizarre example of naked propaganda I've seen to
date. Thirty years ago it would have sparked congressional hearings.
The so-lovely news babes and their handsome associates were in top
form. Sweet, lovable Bush, who's only fault is that he can't speak
English very well, had staged his farewell press conference, and don't
you know, we're all going to miss him.
Meanwhile, his young, handsome, dynamic replacement with godlike voice
and full grasp of every known issue, was busy saving us even before

Iran and hope to make it all seem plausible. Obama is cool with it,

smile a lot.
other words, and with the exception of the CO2 tax scam, Obama must be
morphed into Bush as quickly as possible. Yes, he feels your pain, but
he stands ready to make those really tough decisions! Americans must
given a believable rationale for the apparent change that will overcome
their new president.
If you feel I'm being to harsh on Obama,
check out the opinion another puppet leader, ex-PM Tony Blair, voiced
after election day. The speech reversal was exceptionally clear. When
"the new president" was reversed it became "LOSE THEIR FREEDOM."
(Don't forget you can reverse segments of speech yourself!)
the situation, I would say that although the false flag nuke is headed
for Israel (because it was a lot closer to the action and they won't
lose much), and the real objective is Iran, the attack itself must
be portrayed in every way as a personal attack upon Barrack Obama.
It will be a grim Obama who must then deal with those Islamic
sub-humans, and of course the terrible threats to our security, over
the next four years.
Mark my words; that hollywood grin will soon be history.
II. You've Already Been Warned
the U.S. internal propaganda machine has already told you that the
attack is going to happen. The public is already psychologically
prepared, although most don't realize it.
Do you remember that
Barrack Obama WILL BE TESTED during his first days in office? We have
Joe Biden to thank for that one, and many others who chimed in on cue.
also received multiple warnings from the Secretary of Defense and
Admiral Mullen that the U.S. (which now includes the new Eastern
empire, of course) is historically the target of terrorist operations
during changes in administration. Although no one bothered to ask them
to cite even one real-world example, the message remains embedded in
the collective unconscious.
even the bad guys are warning you. The Florida Psy-Ops studio that
creates all the Al Qaeda and Taliban audio and video tapes has now
released two audio-only video tapes, reportedly from Osama bin Laden
and his delightful “number two” Zawahiri. We are told that Bin Laden
has again called for holy war against Israel. I’ve got the audio from
I’m hoping to get the Zawahiri audio to see if it’s the
same clown we caught before. Not having much luck, so far, but these
days, many news stories reference something that doesn’t exist at all.
I’m off topic. The Psy-Ops outfit is so reliable with these tapes, that
we usually look for one to confirm that a false flag incident is at
least underway for the moment. Of course, when something goes wrong and
the attack fails, old Osama and Zawahiri look bad, but few people know
the real story. Besides, they aren’t real people in the first place.
(Both were murdered before the dust cleared on 9-11, in my opinion.
Otherwise they never would have allowed their names to be used without
huge protest.) (Did you think that was the real Osama?)
White House this week they've conducted an unusual drill in which Bush
and Obama staffers practice side-by-side using all the equipment and
communications links to respond to a major terrorist attack centered on
As I write this, Tony Blair is being shown on CNN
and the legend beneath the picture quotes him as saying "Ghastly Events
Await Obama." In addition to the pre-conditioning effect, we've noticed
that in the final stages of operations like this, there is a terrible
temptation for those who actually know what's happening to make
statements that will later make them seem very wise." Keep your eyes
open for more of this.
One clue from all this is especially important.
The Defense Department propaganda carried an extra piece of information
to be used later if there was some explaining to do. Starting a few days
before the Inauguration, and continuing for some time after it, the
U.S. military will be on FULL ALERT.
That's world-wide, including the Persian Gulf. Remember, Israel is
quietly moving toward full mobilization as well.
When the time comes to nuke Iran there will be very little delay.
U.S. units will already be in position and standing at full alert.
Any last minute movements that would otherwise cause comment before the
main event will be dismissed as part of the precautionary strategy.
III. THE SHOW! - WHAT IT WILL BE LIKE
have accumulated hundreds of small speech reversals that alone don't
tell us much by themselves. But when you add them all together a pretty
good picture is emerging. I may add more material here as more
information comes in, but we already have enough to easily identify the
false-flag nature of the event when it occurs.
players who routinely mention Gambit, the nuclear false-flag plan,
usually also mention The Show. We've come to recognize that this refers
to all the follow-on events that are planned, including the Iran
invasion, and almost certainly some fabulous television coverage that
will have everyone glued to their television sets for days. The
intention seems to be to make events seem even more real to the public
than the original 9-11 show. Although Gambit is the evil heart of
what's about to happen, it's all really about The Show.
inauguration of Barrack Obama will provide a world-wide viewing
audience already in place, and is probably the optimum day for the
missile launch. However, there are always "political" considerations
that influence decisions like this,
I have no problem with the launch coming a day or two before, or after,
the inauguration itself. There should be speech reversals at the last
minute indicating the actual date and time, but unless we are lucky
they probably won't be available for posting in advance of the event.
If Inauguration Day is chosen, you can imagine that all those thousands
of people converging on Washington are going to
have the most
surreal experience of their lives!
Current indications are that the missile is on board a
cargo ship that arrived in port last week.
Unless the Israelis have refused to be portrayed as seriously lax, it's
probably an Israeli port. However, we don't know the actual range of
the missile, and it could be further away. If Iran is to be identified
as the shooter, then the public will be reminded later that Iranian
missiles don't have the range to reach Israel,
so the simplest solution was to move the missile closer to the target.
missile is already mounted on a launcher of some sort in the ship's
cargo space. When the time comes, the firing team will simply hoist
away the hatch cover and trigger the launch. There will be nothing
secret about this.
The Armageddon Missile will leap into the sky
with a bone rattling roar and thousands of people will turn to watch it
climb upward on a very photogenic pillar of smoke and flame.
Be assured, cameras will be rolling.
will follow depends on just how much drama the planners want to create.
For instance, they could claim that Israeli intelligence had learned of
the plot (but not the details) and put the whole country on lockdown
for several hours in advance while television viewers wait to see what
Alternatively, the launch could be a complete surprise but Israeli and
U.S. radar nets pick it up immediately. Either way, we will probably be
told that the target is Tel-Aviv.
crews accidentally in the right spot may treat us to the WHAM! of a
Patriot anti-missile launch or two. (Those things are gone before you
even see them move!)
It's all part of The Show.
In spite of
everyone's worst fears, the actual target of the missile is a piece of
Israeli beach front property on the Med. Perhaps we will be told that a
Patriot missile knocked it off course. It may be simpler, though, to
stick with the story you see in Gaza and say that "terrorists" just
aren't very good at building or aiming missiles.
The warhead is set
to detonate in the air and not on the ground. An air burst has certain
advantages. In this case, the main advantage is that the intense flash
will be visible all over Israel, and every video camera that is running
at the time will probably record it.
Reading the tea leaves of
isolated speech reversals, I'd say the Israeli's are going to lose a
large hotel or resort facility. It might even be something that is in
urgent need of being torn down and replaced, ala the Twin Towers. It
will be interesting to see if this actually materializes.
everyone will know the location of the launch, authorities will
converge upon the launch ship immediately. Although there's a chance it
may be on fire at that point, I think it more likely that prepared
evidence will be found, perhaps even some bodies. Someone may even
leave their laptop again! The U.S. will want the shooters to be
identified as members of the imaginary Al Qaeda,
but there may be
other considerations as well, so we'll just have to wait and see.
Remember how quickly we had the names and photos of those "hijackers"
As a reader of Ken-Welch.com you will have the
opportunity to watch all this without having to worry about Tel-Aviv.
Unfortunately, there will be no way to take away the horror of what
will follow if the Armageddon plan actually works.
Nuclear strikes on Iran will pave the way for the seizure of Iranian
oil reserves, and George Bush will finally be able to say, "Mission
Once again we wait to see if those who insist
they are our masters will succeed or fail at another attempt at mass
murder for corporate profit.
While we wait, please send your
warmest and most supportive thoughts and prayers to the several million
wonderful human beings in the Middle East who are now in harm's way.

US Orders Iran And Turkey Attacks On Iraq
Over Israeli Coup Plot .
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
Russian Military Analysts are reporting today that President Bush, after
consultations and agreement with President-Elect Obama, granted ‘unprecedented’
permission for Iran to join with Turkey in attacking
Israeli backed Kurdish military forces based in the American backed, and
protected, Middle Eastern Nation of Iraq
plan to bring down the moderate Islamic government of Turkey by the
assassination of its democratically elected leaders.
Of the attacks themselves we can read as reported by Turkey’s Hurriyet
News Service: “Turkish and Iranian artillery shelled terror organization
targets in northern Iraq during the past two days, news agencies
reported on Wednesday.
Turkish artillery shelled the Sidikan district, near where the Iraqi,
Iranian and Turkish borders meet, a member of the terror organization
PKK told AFP.
“Yesterday and today, the villages of Rizka, Maradu and Kanira, close to
the Iranian border, were periodically bombarded by the Iranians,” he
PUKmedia, a news service associated with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani,
earlier on Wednesday quoted an Iraqi Kurdish official as saying that the
Iranian artillery started shelling Doli Rash area in Sangster
sub-district in Pishder district, Sulaimani last night and resumed until
Of the Israeli backed plot to bring down Turkey’s Islamic government we
can read as reported by Turkey’s Zamen News Service in their article
titled “Detentions reveal Ergenekon’s covert assassination plots”, and
“A new wave of detentions last week from the clandestine terrorist
network Ergenekon has revealed that the group was planning to
assassinate Alevi and Armenian community leaders, the prime minister and
members of the Supreme Court of Appeals, acts that would have dragged
Turkey into chaos if they had been carried out.
Nearly 40 individuals were detained last week in simultaneous police
operations staged in six cities as part of the ongoing investigation
into Ergenekon, a shady clandestine network of groups and individuals
accused of plotting to overthrow the government. The new detainees
include military officers, an academic with left-wing political activist
background, the former head of the Police Special Operations Unit, seven
retired generals and the former head of the Higher Education Board.”
To the best examination of the Israeli connection with the Kurdish
peoples seeking to make their homeland from parts of the Nations of
Syria, Iraq, Turkey and Iran, we can read as reported by the
internationally respected American intelligence reporter Seymour Hersh
in his 2004 report written for the New Yorker News Service:
“In a series of interviews in Europe, the Middle East, and the United
States, officials told me that by the end of last year Israel had
concluded that the Bush Administration would not be able to bring
stability or democracy to Iraq, and that Israel needed other options.
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s government decided, I was told, to
minimize the damage that the war was causing to Israel’s strategic
position by expanding its long-standing relationship with Iraq’s Kurds
and establishing a significant presence on the ground in the
semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan. Several officials depicted Sharon’s
decision, which involves a heavy financial commitment, as a potentially
reckless move that could create even more chaos and violence as the
insurgency in Iraq continues to grow.
Israeli intelligence and military operatives are now quietly at work in
Kurdistan, providing training for Kurdish commando units and, most
important in Israel’s view, running covert operations inside Kurdish
areas of Iran and Syria. Israel feels particularly threatened by Iran,
whose position in the region has been strengthened by the war. The
Israeli operative include members of the Mossad, Israel’s clandestine
foreign-intelligence service, who work undercover in Kurdistan as
businessmen and, in some cases, do not carry Israeli passports. ... The
former Israeli intelligence officer acknowledged that since late last
year Israel has been training Kurdish commando units to operate in the
same manner and with the same effectiveness as Israel’s most secretive
commando units, the Mistaravim. The initial goal of the Israeli
assistance to the Kurds, the former officer said, was to allow them to
do what American commando units had been unable to do—penetrate, gather
intelligence on, and then kill off the leadership of the Shiite and
Sunni insurgencies in Iraq.”
These reports further state that President Bush made his decision to
allow the Iranian-Turkish attacks upon the Iraqi Kurds after becoming
‘enraged’ at the claims made by Israeli Prime Minister Olmert of how he
intimidated the United States into allowing Israel to continue its war
upon the Palestinian peoples of Gaza, and of this controversy we can
read as reported by the Antiwar.Com News Service in their article titled
“Olmert's Claims Revive Israel Lobby Controversy”, and which says:
“The U.S. State Department fiercely denied claims made by Ehud Olmert
about his influence over President George W. Bush, in an incident that
has stirred up old debates about the role of the Israeli government and
the so-called "Israel lobby" in formulating Middle East policy in
On Monday, Olmert claimed that he demanded and received an immediate
conversation with President Bush, during which he convinced the
president to overrule the wishes of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
and abstain from a United Nations resolution calling for an immediate
cease-fire in Gaza.
In response, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack on Tuesday called
Olmert's claims "wholly inaccurate as to describing the situation, just
100-percent, totally, completely not true." The State Department did not
respond to an IPS request for further elaboration.
Olmert's comments were made in Ashkelon, a southern Israeli city that
has been the target of rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip.
According to Olmert, he called the White House upon hearing of the
upcoming UN Security Council resolution. "I said, 'Get me President Bush
on the phone.' They said he was in the middle of giving a speech in
Philadelphia. I said I didn't care: 'I need to talk to him now.' He got
off the podium and spoke to me," Olmert said, according to multiple
As a result of his conversation with President Bush, Olmert claimed, the
president called Rice and forced her to abstain from voting on the
measure, which she herself had helped author.
"He gave an order to the secretary of state and she did not vote in
favor of it – a resolution she cooked up, phrased, organized, and
maneuvered for. She was left pretty shamed and abstained on a resolution
she arranged," Olmert said. The Security Council resolution passed by a
vote of 14 to 0, with the U.S. the only abstention.”
Of the most astounding facts regarding these latest moves in the Great
Game by the United States and Israel however, it remains the sad fact
that the American people continue to remain the least informed of any of
the World’s Nations as to the continued actions by their government
which is leading our World towards Total Global War, and of which they
are to be the ones most to suffer from the consequences of it.
Even more surprising, and as these reports detail in length, the
American people remain totally ignorant of the significant fact that
with the United States new security agreement with Iraq, it has pledged
itself to safeguarding the Iraqi Nation, and its peoples, against ‘any
and all’ enemies, and which Russian Military Analysts point out could
become problematic should Iraq’s Government declare war on Israel, and
which would then require the United States to go to war with the Israeli
Nation in order to protect its new Middle Eastern ally.
Unlike the American people though, the new realities of the Middle East
are not lost upon the Israelis, and who in seeking to reestablish the
ancient Nation of Kurdistan, and should they succeed, would become the
most powerful Nation on Earth due to their controlling the outlets to
both the West and East of the vast oil and gas wealth of Central Asia
needed by any present Nation wishing to survive this new century in on
an energy and resource starved Planet.
On the other side, of course, and exactly matching our most ancient of
prophecies, should Israel even come close to succeeding in its most
ambitious of goals it will most assuredly see the armies of the entire
World at its very doorstep seeking its destruction.

these the very same words Rice, Bush and Blair spouted when they

civilians in southern Lebanon a couple of years ago? Same war crimes,
same weasel words from Rice. But the Bush reich has had to defend the
psychopathic excesses of Israel so often that it's hardly surprising
they've run out of original words. And that includes the 'Israel has

............... from Khaled Amayreh:
It is no exaggeration to say that genocide of non-Jews in Israel and
Palestine is the ideology of Jewish settlers, and religious Zionism in
general. A few weeks ago, one Jewish settler leader in Hebron who was
arguing with an American tourist had this to say about how the Jewish
state should deal with Arabs.
"You are a Christian, aren't you?"
"Yes," said the American.
"Do you believe in the Bible?"
"Yes," said the American.
then, you should know that God ordered the ancient Israelites to wipe
off the goyem from the holy land of Israel. If that was right then, why
can't it be right now?"
Startled by the settler's rationale, the American tourist walked away
intelligence concluded after Camp David that Yassir Arafat was willing
to follow the Oslo process -- but that's not what they told lawmakers.
In other words, the experts in the Palestinian section of MI, headed by
Lavie, saw Arafat as a potential partner for peace but their superiors
reversed the assessment.
But even if only some key Israeli
intelligence officers believed negotiations could yield a positive
outcome, that news should be a shocking revelation. Yet in a Google
News search a few days after the article appeared, found not a single
mention of it anywhere in the world's news media, and certainly not in
the United States, where it matters most. It matters most here because
Israel can't continue its military action without at least a tacit
green light from Washington. Washington can give that green light only
as long as the American public raises no serious objection. The public
here isn't likely to object as long as the basic plotline of Middle
East news coverage remains the same; namely, that Israel attacked Gaza
U.S. news coverage isn't as wholly sympathetic to Israel as it once
was, the Israelis still managed to make their version of the story
central to mainstream media coverage. Millions of Americans who know
nothing else about the still ongoing conflict believe that the Israelis
are "retaliating against Hamas rockets." What if those millions also
knew the Israeli government ignores its own intelligence experts when
they say Palestinian leaders are willing to make peace? That might
change the entire picture of the Arab-Israeli conflict -- and push
Americans to push their government to push Israel to negotiate in good
faith a peace deal with the Palestinians.

Israel is desperate for an exit strategy. I learned today that Defence
Minister Barak is looking for a week long humanitarian ceasefire.
Please do not hold your breath, the notorious mass murderer didn't
change his spots all of a sudden. Being a veteran general, Barak
realises very well that his soldiers on the ground need a break and
they need it now. Being that they are gathered together in a few
scattered open areas, they are currently exposed to Hamas' snipers and
mortar fire. In the last few days, Israeli forces started to suffer a
growing number of causalities. The attempt to step up the battle into
Gaza's neighbourhood met with some severe resistance. The Israeli army
is stuck once again.
this is not enough, within a few days Obama is going to reside in the
White House and the Israelis are not totally convinced that the new
American president will blindly support their murderous strategy.
Defence Minister Barak realizes that his window of opportunity might be
closing down. He realises that IDF soldiers may have to dig in Gaza
city outskirts without achieving any of the war's military objectives.
Barak needs a few days of ceasefire to create a new reality on the
ground. He obviously prefers to hide behind a humanitarian effort.
As if this is not enough, the many tons of bunker buster
bombs which Israel was using day and night have shaken the foundations
of every building in Gaza and the question looms large as to whether
Gazan houses that are still standing will be safe to live in. EU
officials raised the question today wondering who is going to pay for
the reconstruction of these eradicated towns, camps and villages.
an ideal ethical world, Israel would have let the Gazans go back to
their land. But ethics and Israel are very much like parallel lines.
They somehow never meet. As much as it is clear that Palestinians will
come back to their land, it won't be Israel that that will welcome the
inevitable returning Palestinians.
Someone will have to rebuild
Gaza, and the only name that comes to mind is the democratically
elected Hamas. Such a huge project maintained by Hamas will be the
right answer to Israel's criminal war and its murderous objectives.

The Fourth Geneva Convention protects civilians in time of war. It
prohibits violence of any type against them and requires treatment for
the sick and wounded. In September 1938, a League of Nations unanimous
resolution prohibited the:
"bombardment of cities, towns,
villages, dwellings or buildings not in the immediate neighborhood of
the operations of land forces....In cases where (legitimate targets)
are so situated, (aircraft) must abstain from bombardment" if this
action indiscriminately affects civilians.
The 1945 Nuremberg
Principles prohibit "crimes against peace, war crimes and crimes
against humanity." These include "inhumane acts committed against any
civilian populations, before or during the war," including
indiscriminate killing and "wanton destruction of cities, towns, or
villages, or devastation not justified by military necessity."
1968 General Assembly Resolution on Human Rights prohibits launching
attacks against civilian populations. Israel and America do it
repeatedly - by land, sea and terror bombings.
Below is some relevant history....(...)
The TimesOnline.UK headlined: "Israel rains fire on Gaza with
phosphorous shells" - a weapon that causes horrific burns on human skin
and is illegal except for smokescreens. "Tell-tale shells could be seen
spreading tentacles of thick white smoke to cover the troops' advance.
(They) blind the enemy (but) anyone caught beneath them" gets severely
burned. Using this type weapon in tightly concentrated Gaza assures
some or perhaps many are vulnerable.
Former British major and military expert calls white phosphorous a
terror weapon and if "deliberately fired at a crowd of people (should)
end (someone) up in the Hague."
Dr. Mads Gilbert is a member of its Gaza triage medical team. He told
Press TV about "clear evidence that the Israelis are using new type
very high explosive weapons called Dense Inert Metal Explosive (DIME)
that are made out of a tungsten alloy."
They have enormous
explosive power, and "humans who are hit by (them are) cut to pieces.
(They were) first used in Lebanon (and Gaza) in 2006....On the long
term, these weapons will have a cancer effect on those who
survive....So they kill and those who survive risk having cancer."
Gilbert accused Israel of violating international law. His account was
-- a "ten-year old boy (with) his whole chest filled with (bomb)
-- on his lap was another person's leg that had been cut off;
-- we resuscitated him and did everything we could do to save his life
but he died between our hands." The "common people" of Palestine "are
paying the price for the Israeli bombardments...."
humanitarian crisis is horrific; 80% or more of Gazans are
impoverished; half of them are under 15; "now they don't have
food....electricity; it's cold, they don't have warmth and in
addition...they are killed; this must be stopped."
"Almost all of
the patients we have received have these severe amputations." Terror
weapons caused them - burns, fragment injuries and most with their
limbs cut off.
(..) Remember Gaza - immortalized as one of history's
terror-bombing victims. World outrage demands an end to this and the
prosecution of its perpetrators. We stand together in solidarity. Today
we're all Gazans. We're all Palestinians.

bottom line of the evening's discussion was that the situation in Gaza
is beyond comprehension. A defenseless, densely populated concentration
camp of Palestinian civilians is being relentlessly pounded by an
overwhelming Israeli military, using US-supplied F16 fighter jets,
Apache Helicopters, 'Bunker-buster' bombs and Gun Boats targeting
schools, mosques, hospitals and women and children. The Israeli
military, under direct orders from the Israeli government, is also
using horrendous chemical weapons such as white phosphorus and depleted
uranium shells. Over 1000 people have already died and several thousand
wounded men, women and children will die, slowly, bleeding to death, as
aid is deliberately denied, and all of it sanctioned by the US, British
and French governments (to name but a few). No one can escape in Gaza,
borders are closed and even UN and refugee centers are being shelled.
The hospitals are flooded with victims. Dead and wounded lie next to
each other in all available rooms and hallways that are filled with the
screams of dying adults and children, and the 3-week-long nonstop day
and night pounding of Gaza continues.

In January 1943, SS and police units returned to Warsaw, this time with
the intent of deporting thousands of the remaining approximately
70,000-80,000 Jews in the ghetto to forced-labor camps for Jews in
Lublin District of the Government General.
This time, however,
many of the Jews, understandably believing that the SS and police would
deport them to the Treblinka killing center, resisted deportation, some
of them using small arms smuggled into the ghetto. After seizing
approximately 5,000 Jews, the SS and police units halted the operation
April 19, 1943, a new SS and police force appeared outside the ghetto
walls, intending to liquidate the ghetto and deport the remaining
inhabitants to the forced labor camps in Lublin district.
ghetto inhabitants offered organized resistance in the first days of
the operation, inflicting casualties on the well-armed and equipped SS
and police units. They continued to resist deportation as individuals
or in small groups for four weeks before the Germans ended the
operation on May 16.
The SS and police deported approximately
42,000 Warsaw ghetto survivors captured during the uprising to the
forced-labor camps at Poniatowa and Trawniki and to the Lublin/Majdanek
concentration camp. At least 7,000 Jews died fighting or in hiding in
the ghetto, while the SS and police sent another 7,000 to the Treblinka
killing center. ...

impetus for the uprising was the appearance of Soviet forces along the
east bank of the Vistula River. The Soviets failed to intervene; the
Germans eventually crushed the revolt and razed the center of the city

cease fire, which you use to justify Israel's murder, was broken by
Israel on November 4, 2008, with the assassination of 6 Palestinians.
Look it up. If you don't want to look it up, here, let CNN bring you up
that Israeli act, there was no belligerence from Palestine. They were
honoring the ceasefire. The fact that the media reports 6 "gunmen" were
digging a tunnel is questionable. Ever try to dig a tunnel while
holding a gun?
And in using seeds that have been cleaned, those seeds have carbon
footprint, by Mr. Hixon's figures, less than a fraction of 1% of that
of GMO seeds delivered over 1000s of miles at 5 miles a gallon that
semis require to run.
But Monsanto's GM-soy and other seeds
have a much heavier carbon footprint that the absurd transport of seed
across the country by semis.
Petroleum-based pesticides are the
essence of genetic engineering, and Monsanto has a poorly known history
of their relation to warfare.
"Huge excesses of nitrogenous
compounds that accumulated during World War I provided the basis for
the beginnings of the mass production of synthetic nitrate fertilizers.
DuPont -- now the sole owner of the world's largest seed company,
Pioneer HiBred -- was the largest manufacturer of gunpowder in the
United States during the early 19th century and the first World War.
Monsanto increased its profits 100 fold during the World War, from
$80,000 to well over $9 million per year, supplying the chemical
precursors for high explosives such as TNT.
"In the 1930s,
chemists working for the German company Bayer discovered the highly
poisonous properties of organophosphate compounds. .... As all of
German industry became absorbed into the growing Nazi war machine,
Bayer's organophosphate compounds were developed simultaneously as
agricultural pesticides and as nerve gases for military use. These
included such notorious chemical warfare agents as sarin, soman and
tabun gases, all of which are still manufactured today. ...
the 1930s, scientists at the Swiss J. R. Geigy Company were searching
for new compounds to disinfect seeds and prevent moths from feeding on
wool. ... These researchers' key discovery was that DDT ... could
accomplish both of their desired ends and more. ... DDT was seen as the
"atom bomb of insecticides," capable of permanently eliminating various
"After World War II, DDT became the most widely
applied chemical in human history .... The widespread use of DDT -- for
both agricultural and household uses -- led to a dramatic shift in the
chemical industry's approach to pest control ... was in many ways a
direct outgrowth of its wartime origins. ...
the 1960s, Monsanto was a leading manufacturer of the herbicide 'Agent
Orange,' which was used by U.S. military forces to obliterate the dense
jungles of Vietnam. Today Monsanto's Roundup-family herbicides play a
central role in the U.S. "drug war" via its widespread use to eradicate
coca and poppy plants in Colombia and other countries...."
shift to genetically engineered food seems a welcome change from such a
history. But it appears there has been no change, only a more thorough
and disguises means of ensuring its sales.
"Of all of Monsanto,
DuPont and Dow's agricultural products, genetically engineered food
crops might appear to be the least tainted with immediate wartime
origins. But this technology emerged from a period when the future of
chemical agriculture appeared very much in doubt. With the rapid
expansion of the agrochemical industry during the post-World War II
era, these companies and their European counterparts had established a
profound degree of control over agricultural practices.
as public pressure and the weight of scientific evidence curtailed the
use of DDT and many other chlorinated pesticides in the 1970s,
executives and corporate scientists saw the potential for limitless
advances -- and ever-expanding marketing potential -- in the
incorporation of technological advances into the genetics of seeds.
During the 1990s, Monsanto alone spent nearly $8 billion acquiring
leading commercial seed suppliers in the United States and
internationally; DuPont and others quickly followed suit, leading to
today's widespread proliferation of genetically engineered food crops."
Today, in Illinois, our federal agents and police,
working on behalf of Monsanto, are terrorizing ... whom? Drug dealers?
Financiers who have stolen this country blind? The people who took us
to war based on lies and have profited while thousands of American and
100s of thousands of Iraqi have died? No. Our tax dollars are being
used to turn our marshals and police into Monsanto agents to terrorize
our disappearing farmers.
