1/1/10 Tides Turn: Harbinger of 2010, part 2

As H. L. Mencken wrote in The American Mercury, April 1924, the aim of public education is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality...for evidence read The Educational System Was Designed to Keep Us Uneducated and Docile,

Reality always trumps rhetoric so dumbing down and pacification had to get more pervasive and sophisticated. Skipping forward over decades of ani-capitalist struggle, strikes, and revolutions abroad to the so-called 60's, amerika was confronted by it's mo powerful revolutionary movement led by the Black Panther Party, heir to Marx, Malcom X and Mao.

"The Negro youth and moderate[s] must be made to understand that if they succumb to revolutionary teachings, they will be dead revolutionaries."
J. Edgar Hoover,FBI Chief, re:COINTELPRO against the Black Panther Party

"You can kill revolutionaries, but you cannot kill the revolution" young Black Panther revolutionary leader Fred Hampton said before the U.S. COINTELPRO murdered him and dozens of his comrades because revolution was getting too close to home here in the belly of the monster.
From Africa and Asia to Latin America, anti-imperialist national liberation wars were defeating U.S. imperialism. In 1978, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Carter's sectrary of state and major geostrategist architect, warned in his NSC 46 Memorandum, Black Africa and the U.S. Black Movement, of the imminent danger to U.S. capitalism and spelled out, in classic white supremacy's fascist arrogance, essential steps to defuse and destroy the revolutionary movement still growing after COINTELPRO. www.finalcall.com/MEMORANDUM-46.htm

Today amerika uses not only school, church and family but 24/7 psywar propaganda called news and entertainment and tech 'social networking' devices like twitter, my face, etc. fostering all-amerikan narcissistic ignorance and consumerism while also directly capturing target audience with propaganda to reach demographics and populations [a major front in u.s. 'soft' power war now merged with military power under the DofD.].

Below a few samples of why our 'ignorance is bliss' for amerika's fearful rulers. More importantly, if we knew some actual history more of us would be aware and confident of our responsibility and ability to act upon the fact that 'we', here in amerika, are part of the 95% of humanity who are our real allies, and 'we' hold the future in our hands. We have the strength strategically, not the terrorists we allow to destroy the world and the planet in our names.

World’s Sole Military Superpower’s 2 Million-Troop, $1 Trillion Wars
By Rick Rozoff
With a census of slightly over 300 million in a world of almost seven billion people, the U.S. accounts for over 40 percent of officially acknowledged worldwide government military spending with a population that is only 4 percent of that of the earth’s. A 10-1 disparity.

Nobel Peace Prize Winner & Diplomat Statesman
Henry Alfred Kissinger, 56th Secretary of State of the United States from 1973 to 1977, received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973.
President Bush appointed Dr. Henry Kissinger to head the 911 commission to investigate what the government knew and didn't know, what it did and didn't do, before the terror attacks on September 11th.

"The American response to 9/11 had essentially to be more than proportionate- on a larger scale than simply invading Afghanistan and overthrowing the Taliban. Something else was needed. The Iraq War was essential to send a larger message, 'in order to make a point that we're not going to live in this world that they want for us.' He said he had defended the war ever since."

Sept. 10, 2001, a civil suit was filed in a Washington, D.C., federal court, charging Henry Kissinger with murder. The suit, brought by the survivors of Gen. Rene Schneider of Chile, assert that Kissinger gave the order for the elimination of this constitutional officer of a democratic country because he refused to endorse plans for a military coup. Every single document in the prosecution case is a U.S.-government declassified paper. And the target of this devastating lawsuit is being invited to review the shortcomings of the "intelligence community"...

The Taliban, says Kissinger below, must "dismantle the structure of terrorism" as well as "give up this one man [bin Laden]"; the US, naturally, is obliged to do neither, and the man they ought to be giving up to the docks of an international court on crimes against humanity is instead living well and giving color commentary on terrorism, such as what follows, for CNN and the rest of the complicit mainstream media.

Kissinger: 'We can't tolerate this'

CNN: Henry Kissinger, U.S. secretary of state and national security adviser during the Nixon administration, played a large role in U.S. policy during the latter part of the Vietnam War. He talked with CNN's Paula Zahn on Monday about last week's terrorist attacks on U.S. targetsand offered his perspective on the road ahead.

CNN: Let's start off with the latest development. We know that Pakistan's top spy and a former ambassador to Afghanistan have gone to the Taliban and issued a demand: Give us Osama bin Laden in the next three days or face military action. What's going to happen as a result of that demand?

KISSINGER: Well, I think it's an ultimatum, and if they refuse, there will certainly be military action. But I believe we have to go after the Taliban anyway. They've been supporting these terrorist activities all over the area and all over the world, and it isn't enough for them to give up one man, they have to dismantle the structure of terrorism.
CNN...if the United States and its allies can specifically target Osama bin Laden, who the president says is the prime suspect, how will that change the efforts in the months to come?
KISSINGER: Not much. We're not good at this...The key element will be: one, whether we can generate a consensus; secondly, whether we will keep going after our initial, hopefully, success, because this is going to be a long effort as the president has said.
CNN...Sunday we heard a number of cabinet secretaries repeat that message. What is it the American public should be prepared for? I heard someone say a 10-year war.
KISSINGER: Well, it could be a prolonged war, but its intensity will diminish, and after a while it will be a mopping-up operation. And what we have to remember is, if we don't do it, we will remain permanently vulnerable. People who rely on us and others even who don't rely on us are going to be under an even greater threat than we are, and that means that the world will be dominated by terrorists, and we can't tolerate this.

December 31, 2009 - A federal judge on Thursday dismissed criminal charges against five Blackwater guards involved in the massacre of 14 Iraqi civilians in Baghdad in September 2007. US District Court Judge Ricardo Urbina ruled that federal prosecutors improperly used statements the men gave to State Department investigators under a promise of immunity to secure indictments against them.

Court says US can stay mum about Guantánamo lawyer surveillance
Lawyers for Guantánamo detainees want surveillance records. An appeals court ruled agencies can refuse to confirm or deny the existence of such records for national security
when faced with a Freedom of Information Act request that might disclose sensitive intelligence activities, sources, or methods. The ruling by a three-judge panel of the Second US Circuit Court of Appeals was in connection with a lawsuit seeking information about whether the US conducted secret surveillance of lawyer communications with detainees at the Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, prison camp...“We do not find any evidence that even arguably suggests bad faith on the part of the NSA, or that the NSA provided an [intentionally evasive] response to plaintiffs’ requests for the purpose of concealing illegal or unconstitutional actions,”... In upholding the judge’s ruling, the Second Circuit panel joined four other courts of appeal in allowing the government to use the device of neither confirming nor denying records in a FOIA request. The other appeals courts are the DC Circuit in Washington, the First Circuit in Boston, the Seventh Circuit in Chicago, and the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco...
The FOIA request was submitted in 2006 by 23 lawyers who represent individuals being held as terror suspects at Guantánamo. The request sought records from the National Security Agency (NSA) and Justice Department “obtained or relating to ongoing or completed warrantless electronic surveillance or physical searches regarding, referencing, or concerning…” any of the 23 lawyers.

ISLAMABAD (AP) -- Pakistan will not go as far as Washington wants, and there's nothing the U.S. can do about it: That's the sobering reality as the U.S. tries to persuade a hesitant Pakistan to finish off the fight against terrorists....Pakistanis are deeply suspicious of America's power and motives, making it difficult for their leaders to accede to Washington's pressure in public, lest they look like U.S. puppets. U.S. officials say that while Pakistani officials cooperate more in private, there are definite limits....A senior U.S. diplomat hinted at a separate agreement that would allow the U.S. itself to take on some of the hidden war against Pakistan's militants...The diplomat said the stepped-up U.S. action would come with Pakistani support, but would not elaborate on the potential cooperation... Most of the groups aligned against the U.S. are in North Waziristan, a tribal area not pressed hard by Pakistan's army. The only firepower directed at militants there comes from American missile-loaded drones.... Without additional pressure from inside Pakistan, the only other option is for the U.S. to finish the fight against terrorists on its own...

Ex-Security Chief Brzezinski's Interview makes clear: The Muslim Terrorist Apparatus was Created by US Intelligence as a Geopolitical Weapon
Le Nouvel Observateur's Interview with Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Jimmy Carter's National Security Adviser
Published 15-21 January 1998 Translated by Jean Martineau

Comment, Jared Israel, Editor, Emperor's Clothes:
The US & European States are still using Brzezinski's Muslim terrorist strategy. The Brzezinski interview with Le Nouvel Observateur follows comment.

... flatly contradicts the official US justification for giving billions of dollars to the mujahideen in Afghanistan in the 1980s, namely that the US and Saudi Arabia were defending so-called freedom fighters against Soviet aggression. Not so, says Brzezinski. He confirms what opponents have charged: that the US began covert sponsorship of Muslim extremists five months *before* the Soviets invaded Afghanistan. He says that after President Carter authorized the covert action: "I explained to the president that this support would in my opinion lead to a military intervention by the Soviets."

...as they claimed to oppose Muslim extremism, they fomented it *as a weapon of policy.* And lied about what they were doing, pretending they were helping freedom fighters resist an invasion. In other words, deceit on two levels. One must ask oneself: if the US foreign policy Establishment used Muslim extremism as a weapon once, how can one argue *in principle* that they would not use it again? We say they *have* used it again; that they have used it continuously; and that we are seeing the fruits of this...

Brzezinski and his protégé, Zalmay Khalilzad, set up a corporation in 1985, funded by the US congress, to train the mujahideen to sell reporters the lie that the mujahideen were freedom fighters and victims of aggression: [Excerpt from 1985 Joan Mower Associated Press dispatch below]:

Le Nouvel Observateur: Former CIA director Robert Gates states in his memoirs: The American secret services began six months before the Soviet intervention to support the Mujahideen [in Afghanistan]. At that time you were president Carters security advisor; thus you played a key role in this affair. Do you confirm this statement?

Zbigniew Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version, the CIA's support for the Mujahideen began in 1980, i.e. after the Soviet army's invasion of Afghanistan on 24 December 1979. But the reality, which was kept secret until today, is completely different: Actually it was on 3 July 1979 that president Carter signed the first directive for the secret support of the opposition against the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And on the same day I wrote a note, in which I explained to the president that this support would in my opinion lead to a military intervention by the Soviets.

Le Nouvel Observateur: Despite this risk you were a supporter of this covert action? But perhaps you expected the Soviets to enter this war and tried to provoke it?

Zbigniew Brzezinski: It's not exactly like that. We didn't push the Russians to intervene but we knowingly increased the probability that they would do it.

Le Nouvel Observateur: When the Soviets justified their intervention with the statement that they were fighting against a secret US interference in Afghanistan, nobody believed them. Nevertheless there was a core of truth to this...Do you regret nothing today?

Zbigniew Brzezinski: Regret what? This secret operation was an excellent idea. It lured the Russians into the Afghan trap, and you would like me to regret that? On the day when the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote president Carter, in essence: "We now have the opportunity to provide the USSR with their Viet Nam war." Indeed for ten years Moscow had to conduct a war that was intolerable for the regime, a conflict which involved the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet Empire.

Le Nouvel Observateur: And also, don't you regret having helped future terrorists, having given them weapons and advice?

Zbigniew Brzezinski: What is most important for world history? The Taliban or the fall of the Soviet Empire? Some Islamic hotheads or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?

Le Nouvel Observateur: "Some hotheads?" But it has been said time and time again: today Islamic fundamentalism represents a world-wide threat...

Zbigniew Brzezinski: Rubbish! It's said that the West has a global policy regarding Islam. That's hogwash: there is no global Islam. Let's look at Islam in a rational and not a demagogic or emotional way. It is the first world religion with 1.5 billion adherents. But what is there in common between fundamentalist Saudi Arabia, moderate Morocco, militaristic Pakistan, pro-Western Egypt and secularized Central Asia? Nothing more than that which connects the Christian countries...

Headline: U.S. Provides $500,000 So Afghan Rebels Can Tell Their Story
AP, September 16, 1985, Monday, PM cycle Section: Washington Dateline
By Joan Mower
Guerrillas in Afghanistan are about to get money from the United States government for a public relations campaign intended to bring their struggle against Soviet troops to the world's attention. The money will train Afghan rebel journalists to use television, radio and newspapers to advance their cause. Reporters will be given mini-cameras to photograph the war inside Afghanistan. "It is the goal of this project to facilitate the collection, development and distribution of credible, objective and timely professional-quality news stories, photographs and television images about developments in Afghanistan," said a notice in the Federal Register. The program will be overseen by Uncle Sam's own propaganda arm, the U.S. Information Agency. Congress appropriated $500,000 to hire experts and may provide more later.
In making the money available, Congress all but instructed USIA to consider an organization like Friends of Afghanistan, a new group whose board includes former Carter administration national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski...

USIA has solicited proposals, due Sept. 25.
Friends of Afghanistan includes other American foreign policy luminaries such as Lawrence Eagleburger, a former undersecretary of state, and Dr. Zalmay Khalilzad, a Columbia University political science professor and some-time paid adviser to the State Department on Afghanistan...
Afghan rebels, called the Mujahadeen, have been battling 100,000 Soviet troops who have occupied the rugged, mountainous country since December 1979. [...] [Excerpt from AP dispatch ends here]

The AP referred to Khalilzad as a "some-time paid adviser to the State Department on Afghanistan." This was in the late summer of 1985. Less than three years later Tass, the Soviet news agency, reported that Khalilzad was delivering the mujahideen an important message from the State Department. Khalilzad told them that the State Department would continue to support them a) only if they could consolidate control of Afghanistan and b) only if they maintained an attitude of implacable hostility to the government in Kabul. In other words the US ordered the mujahideen *not* to make peace:
"'The United States has told the Afghan guerrillas that it would support them in an effort to form a provisional government if they consolidate their control of most of the country and meet other criteria,' the newspaper New York Times today quoted State Department officials as saying. A top State Department official made it clear that the government must oppose 'the soviet-backed regime in Kabul' and said that the USA did not 'accept the legitimacy' of the authorities in Afghanistan. The relevant message was delivered to the rebels in the Pakistani city of Peshawar last week by Zalmay Khalilzad, a special adviser on Afghanistan to under secretary of state Michael H. Armacost..."
[-- To Support Afghan Counter Revolutionaries New York; The Russian Information Agency ITAR-TASS, May 6, 1988, Friday]

Applying the techniques developed in Afghanistan to Bosnia
Brzezinski's interview has tremendous importance today. According to a Dutch intelligence report on Bosnia, in the early 1990s Pentagon intelligence worked with the Saudis and Iranians to bring weapons and mujahideen terrorists - the 'Afghan Arabs' - into Bosnia to indoctrinate and lead Alija Izetbegovic's Muslim extremists in fighting the Bosnian Serbs. [1]
The same terrorists had been used against the pro-Soviet side in Afghanistan. Once again the media lied, claiming the Bosnian Serbs were fighting to destroy the Bosnian Muslims (i.e., genocide) when they were in fact defending their communities from the mujahideen, and were allied with a large group of moderate Muslims. [2]

This picture appeared in the London Times on December 11, 1995. The caption reads: "One of the Bosnian Army's Muslim brigades marches through Zenica in a demonstration of strength by 10,000 soldiers." Note that according to the Times these 10,000 troops constituted only *one* of "the Bosnian Army's Muslim brigades..."
During the 1990s, pictures like this were as rare as hen's teeth in the Western media. Why? Because they graphically demonstrated that the media was lying when it claimed that the "Bosnian Government" was moderate and multiculturalist and so on.
The white costumes these troops are wearing are the uniforms of Middle Eastern mujahideen, not Yugoslav Muslims. The Bosnian Muslim troops wore them because they had been indoctrinated by Muslim extremists, including mujahideen imported by Iran, Saudi Arabia and other extremist states, with the participation of Pentagon intelligence. In the early part of the Bosnian conflict (up until January 1993) Zalmay Khalilzad, the protégé of Zginew Brzezinski, was in charge of strategic planning at the Pentagon. [3]

In Afghanistan (as Brzezinski proudly states) and then in Bosnia, the US sponsored Muslim terror even as the State Department was officially condemning it. Because ordinary people would never support such a policy, it was sold to the public as support for freedom fighters (Afghanistan) or as defense of abused Muslims (Bosnia.)

By the late 1980s Brzezinski's protégé, Prof. Zalmay Khalilzad, was the top strategist of the Afghan war.
Under the administration of Bush, Sr., Khalilzad was in charge of strategy at the Pentagon. We have substantial evidence that it was under Bush, Sr., not Clinton, that the US began assisting the mujahideen in Bosnia. So, in both cases, we have Brzezinski's protégé directing the use of Muslim extremism as a weapon against a secular state, with the media misrepresenting the nature of the fight. The Brzezinski Doctrine in action.

2001: Brzezinski's protégé Zalmay Khalilzad was appointed Senior National Security Director for Southwest Asia, the heartland of Muslim extremist terror...
Want some food for thought? From May 23, 2001 until November 27, 2003, Prof. Khalilzad was "Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Gulf, Southwest Asia and Other Regional Issues, National Security Council." Southwest Asia covers the area from Pakistan to Saudi Arabia, including Iraq and Iran; it includes most of the Middle East and extends to Georgia. See White House map at

* Khalilzad was in charge of US policy on the ground in Afghanistan before and during the 2001 war. He then personally chose the Afghan government. It was under his watch that the US and Iran cooperated in convening a top level conference to give Afghanistan a government based on Muslim religious law. Now he's Ambassador and Special Envoy to Afghanistan. [4]

* Even while Khalilzad was in charge of Afghanistan he was also the key man on the ground before, during and after the invasion of Iraq. He was in charge of political relations with Iraqi exile politicians and the Iranian and Saudi governments up until the fall 2003. A crucial period.

* His area of official responsibility included Georgia during the period when the US was intensifying the financing and training of the Georgian military. Russia accuses Georgia of aiding the Chechen terrorists....

Zbig meets Osama in Pakistan 1981
"19 Oct 2009 ... training and other support to the Muslim Mujahadeen and to demoralize ... The CIA funnels support to the Muslim Brotherhood because of “the ... Or is the strategy to allow the arming of Islamic countries with nuclear ..."
Back pursuing Obama’s ‘missing link‘ in the visit to Pakistan in 1981, it was necessary to revisit Zbigniew Brzezinski’s activities, roles and positions at the time. “ZB” is a soviet specialist ‘widely consulted’ on the political affairs inside communist countries.
Brzezinski has the ‘necessary ingredients’ of the ‘thread’ that links to Obama’s hidden history: a professor at Columbia University (1960-1989); ties to the CIA; Carter’s national security advisor, currently key advisor to Obama, and a master at the game of ‘geopolitics‘ and how those forces can be manipulated for strategic gain. ...

During Brzezinski’s visit to Pakistan in the spring of 1981, Obama happened to be visiting Pakistan on spring break, just after having entered Columbia University, and supposedly visiting his mother (working for the Ford Foundation) in Lahore, and later ‘hunting partridge’ in the country side. Right. :roll:
ZB’s activities had been focused on breaking apart the Soviet Union using CIA and U.S. military assets to create chaos and instability. In Afghanistan, the goal was to provoke the Soviet Union into invading, and to provide weapons, training and other support to the Muslim Mujahadeen and to demoralize the Soviet army in an unwinnable fight.... the Muslim Brotherhood, which had been established in Egypt, had already established itself in Pakistan and Afghanistan....

The U.S. Role in Arming Bin Ladin
The goal of ZB’s efforts was to create a ‘arc of chaos’ in Muslim countries as a hedge against Soviet influence. To do this, the CIA had to arm insurgents at the expense of stability in these countries....the goals also included strategic access to oil reserves and the design of systems to serve Europe, and not the Soviet Union or China. Access to this area was critical to the strategic construction of oil pipelines through the region to serve western interests.

In an interview with Le Nouvel Observateur, Paris, 15-21 January 1998, ZB confirms that the United States goal under Jimmy Carter and with the CIA was to increase the probability that the Soviets would invade Afghanistan:

Question: The former director of the CIA, Robert Gates, stated in his memoirs ["From the Shadows"], that American intelligence services began to aid the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan 6 months before the Soviet intervention. In this period you were the national security adviser to President Carter. You therefore played a role in this affair. Is that correct?

Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.

Q: Despite this risk, you were an advocate of this covert action. But perhaps you yourself desired this Soviet entry into war and looked to provoke it?

B: It isn’t quite that. We didn’t push the Russians to intervene, but we knowingly increased the probability that they would.

Q: When the Soviets justified their intervention by asserting that they intended to fight against a secret involvement of the United States in Afghanistan, people didn’t believe them. However, there was a basis of truth. You don’t regret anything today?

B: Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter. We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.

Of course the United States was not only involved in Afghanistan but also other Muslim countries...if these countries express any kind of nationalist tendency, the CIA gets involved as a ‘destabilizing’ force...a strategy used to arm Hamas as a hedge against Palestinian nationalism. Manipulating the Muslim angst against secular governments and fomenting violence is a hallmark characteristic of this effort.

1954, Egyptian President Gamal Abddul Nasser’s nationalist policies in Egypt come to be viewed as completely unacceptable by Britain and the US. MI6 and the CIA jointly hatch plans for his assassination.
he CIA funnels support to the Muslim Brotherhood because of “the Brotherhood’s commendable capability to overthrow Nasser.” [Baer, 2003, pp. 99; Dreyfuss, 2005, pp. 101-108] The Islamist regime in Saudi Arabia becomes an ally of the United States in the conflict with Nasser. They offer financial backing and sanctuary to Muslim Brotherhood militants during Nasser’s crackdown. Nasser dies of natural causes in 1970. [Dreyfuss, 2005, pp. 90-91, 126-131, 150]


After Egyptian President Gamal Abddul Nasser dies in October 1970, he is succeeded as president of Egypt by his former Vice President, Anwar Sadat. Sadat is also a former member of the Muslim Brotherhood, and he promptly reinstates the group as a legal organization and welcomes them back into Egypt. Sadat also has a very close relationship with the head of Saudi intelligence, Kamal Adham. Through Adham, Sadat also develops close working relationships not only with the Saudis, but with the CIA and Henry Kissinger. Sadat uses the power of the religious right, and the Muslim Brothers in particular to contain the Nasserites and their resistance to the radical changes he introduces. During Sadat’s tenure in the 1970’s Egypt becomes a hotbed of Islamic fundamentalism, and figures like Sheikh Omar Abdul-Rahman and Ayman al-Zawahiri gain great power in Egypt during this period. Ironically Sadat himself is assassinated in 1981 by Islamic Jihad, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, in 1981, because of his accomodation with Israel. [Dreyfuss, 2005, pp. 147-162, 165]
