Implosion 911 I would Read This
The Pentagon lied.
Defense Minister, Adam Ingram, admitted that
the US had misled the British high command about the use of napalm, but he would not comment on the extent of the cover up.
The use of firebombs puts the US in breach of the 1980 Convention on Certain Chemical Weapons (CCW) and is a violation the
Geneva Protocol against the use of white phosphorous, "since its use causes indiscriminate and extreme injuries especially
when deployed in an urban area."
Napalm in Falluja
The US also used
napalm in the siege of Falluja as was reported in the UK Mirror ("Falluja Napalmed", 11-28-04) The Mirror said, "President
George Bush has sanctioned the use of napalm, a deadly cocktail of polystyrene and jet-fuel banned by the United Nations in
1980, will stun the world.. Reports claim that innocent civilians have died in napalm attacks, which turn victims into human
fireballs as the gel bonds flames to flesh.Since the American assault on Falluja there have been reports of 'melted' corpse,
which appeared to have napalm injuries."
"Human fireballs" and "melted corpses"; these are the real expressions of
Operation Iraqi Freedom not the bland platitudes issuing from the presidential podium. We can assume that the order to use napalm (as well as
the other, unidentified substances) came straight from the office of Donald Rumsfeld.Wake Up Call

Bunker Busters- The Bush administration has asked for $8.5 million in the
2006 budget for research on a "Robust Nuclear Earth Penetrator" (RNEP). This new nuclear weapon, also known as the nuclear
"bunker buster," is being promoted as a useful tool in attacking deeply buried command centers or underground stores of chemical
and biological weapons. But numerous scientific critiques, including one by the National Academy of Science, find that in
many cases such a weapon would be ineffective. In addition, the nuclear blast and radioactive fall-out could kill millions
of innocent people in surrounding areas. A single "bunker buster" would likely have many times the explosive capability and
fallout of the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima!!!!! Please consider joining me in signing this petition sponsored by the Union

I'm Having A Bad Hair Day.
I wonder Who George is trying to convince. That is a bunch
of crap. Iraq had nothing to do with 911. He has put the world in more danger than any President ever has. He has lied, manipulated,
coerced, and fabricated whatever is needed to justify his actions. He has cost the American people their safety and pride.
There is an air of mistrust all over the planet. People are being jailed for no particular reason, other then they are suspected
of maybe being terrorists. They don’t get justice. Just locked away for years and tortured. He has sent off troops to
fight a war that should not be. NOT justifiable. If I remember it was over weapons of mass destruction, which did not exist
except in someones imagination. Iraq is worse off now then they ever were. Not enough food, enough water. Absolutely no form
of feeling safe whatsoever. The death toll in Iraq is higher now by horrific numbers in comparison to the before picture when
Sadism was in power, who was helped into to power by the American Government. Saddam was supplied with weapons by said government
so Iran could be attacked. Lest WE Forget. The US encouraged him. Helped him in every way possible. Not defending or condoning
Saddams actions, yes he did kill a large number of people. Of course had he not been helped into power??? I guess we will
never know, will we. In Afghanistan they desperately wanted a gas pipeline accoss it. Well it’s there now. Iraq has
oil and guess who is in control of it. Bush has been trying to convince the world he is justified in what he is doing. Well
evidence tells me he is guilty of numerous crimes. Bush is the criminal. Because of him many have died. Soldiers, reporters,
innocent civilians, If one can judge by the evidence only, it is quiet clear. Innocent people have been put into prison. Now
when I comes to Cuba. After everything that has been shoved down the throats of people by by the media and the Gov. about
how horrid Cuban is, and how evil it all is there. I have to wonder about the choice of using it as a refuge to store
prisoners. Haven’t we been told for years how horrible the Government is there?? In Cuba they have free health care,
Everyone has access to health care. No exceptions. That is just awful. I know of a great number of people who have gone there
on vacation and found most of what they saw on the news was B. S.
What I have noticed is Whatever Bush talks about what other
countries are doing that is so evil, is exactly what he is doing.
Oldest Trick in the book. Do what you want and blame it on
the enemy. Kill whomever you want and blame it on the enemy. That is as Old as when they dressed up as Indians and attacked
a community to break a treaty. Or When they stole black people from Africa and justified it by saying they were inferior.
Hello how gullible are we? History tells us to be careful. Witches burned at the stake and tortured. That was nothing more
then a land grab. The accuser got the witches land. Go Figure? In history they always had to find someone to blame for the
ills of the world. They just pick some one and fly with it. They create it. It’s called propaganda. Hitler did it with
the Jews. One can learn a lot from History, if they are willing to learn the lesson. The gay people are evil ??? Oh yes we
must not forget they will destroy the world too. Ya right!!!
Next it will be people with "Blue" eyes. Or maybe it’s
"Blondes" that will destroy the world. Or maybe it’s that cheap White Trash. Or maybe or maybe. I remember an era when
men were put on work farms and called communist and all they really were, "Men out of work and hungry." It was all based
on lies. Regina Riots. Just ordinary people like us. Who happened to not be lucky enough to have a job. It was B.S. "Unions
were evil. "If not for Unions little kids would still be working like slaves in many countries. Our safety standards would
be nil. Workers would have virtually no rights.

Well pot has lots of great things about it. Fabulous pain

The will never put something on the market that will cure.
Cuts into profit and research moneys, don't ya know? Finding a cure is so much more profitable. Simple but true. Treating
sick is profitable curing them is not. I figured that one out years ago. I wonder what is taking the rest of the public so
long to get that one. Cancer is big business why do you think they do so much to create it. Depleted uranium, pesticides herbicides.
Toxic garbage air pollution. They make trillions of that shit. Putting it bluntly. Pharma companies adore sick people. They
even go out of their way to create more of them. Hey did you know that the Government has research in progress, and this is
just sick. They are working on a virus that targets a specific ethnic group. Imagine a virus that kills only Black people.
WOW how sweet. They have been working on that one for quite a while. Many suspect that HIV was created in a lab in the thirties,
for germ warfare. It wouldn't surprise me in the least. And how coincidental it started in the Black and Gay communities.
Of course they never expected Blacks to marry Whites and obviously never realized there were such a group as bi-sexuals. Boy
that one blew ah. Germ warfare is very sneaky and underhanded and in the hands of a lunatic can be very devastatings. It is
easy to introduce to a community of people. Same with animals. It can be introduced at the drop of a hat. Put it in the FEED
that animals eat. BSE is an example. I rest my case. An epidemic can be started in a matter of One second. All you need
is one person, one animal. Only ONE. Like the flue that an American soldier took to war over seas with him. That flue epidemic
killed millions around the world. That's History. Was he given the flue on purpose? You tell me?

budgetary appropriations or grants, to order members of the Florida National Guard into active service, as defined by Section
250.27, Florida Statutes, for the purpose of training to support law-enforcement personnel and emergency-management personnel
in the event of civil disturbances or natural disasters and to provide training support to law-enforcement personnel and community-based
organizations relating to counter drug operations. This Executive Order shall remain in full force and effect until the earlier
of its revocation or June 30, 2003." This Florida EO places the Florida National Guard [which is not a lawful militia], a
unit of the Federal U.S. Army, in control of all Florida law enforcement [State FDLE, County Sheriffs, and local PD's] and
the Florida Emergency Management Agency [Florida's FEMA under federal FEMA control]. This took place four days before the

Former Ku Klux Klansman Edgar Ray Killen has been found guilty of manslaughter
in the deaths of three civil-rights workers who disappeared exactly 41 years ago today.
Schwerner, 24, and Goodman, 20, came from New York to register black voters.
Chaney, a 21-year-old black man from Mississippi, also participated in the voter drive.
On June 21, 1964, the three were in a car together, driving on Mississippi
back roads in an attempt to investigate a church burning in the segregated south. Before they could get to the church, the
three men were arrested for speeding and thrown into jail.
Prosecutors say that while the civil rights workers sat in prison, about
20 Klan members decided to hatch a plan to kill the three.
When the three were released, they were chased by Klan members, who forced
their vehicle off the road, beat them and shot them to death at close range, authorities say.
Their bodies were found 44 days later, buried in an earthen dam.
Killen, a part-time preacher, was accused by authorities of being the ringleader.
He was also the first person to be indicted for murder in the case.
Ben Chaney, James Earl Chaney's younger brother, said he spoke briefly to his 82-year-old mother after the verdict. "She's
happy," he said. "She finally believes that the life of her son has some value to the people in this community."
But for some of those who had hoped to see Mr. Killen convicted of murder,
the manslaughter verdict was less than a total victory. "The fact that some members of this jury could have sat through that
testimony, indeed could have lived here all these years and could not bring themselves to acknowledge that these were murders,
that they were committed with malice, indicates that there are still people unfortunately among you who choose to look aside,
who choose to not see the truth," Ms. Bender, who was married to Mr. Schwerner, said after the trial.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOH KKK Now that is just so weird.
I bet they check to see who read the Farmers Almanac as well.

FBI trawls libraries for terrorist readers For Full Story
London Guardian | June 21 2005
bookish calm of a public library might not seem like the most obvious place to hunt for terrorists, but according to a report,
the FBI and other US law enforcement agencies involved in counter-terrorism have made more than 200 requests for information
about borrowers from libraries since September 11.
A list of people who had borrowed a book about Osama bin Laden
was among the information to have been demanded since the introduction of the patriot act, the legislation that has enhanced
the government's powers to investigate alleged terrorist activity after the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon..
Locking On to Target For Full Story Just a Reminder!
Indeed, reported the Associated Press on December 24th, this threat is so serious that
the FBI has just issued a nationwide police dispatch:
"…the FBI is warning police nationwide to be alert
for people carrying almanacs, cautioning that the popular reference books covering everything from abbreviations to weather
trends could be used for terrorist planning.
"In a bulletin sent Christmas Eve to about 18,000 police
organizations, the FBI said terrorists may use almanacs 'to assist with target selection and pre-operational planning.'
