"The first rule is to keep an untroubled spirit. The second is to look things in the face and know them for what they are."
~~ Marcus Aurelius ~~

"Necessity is the plea of every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves."
~~ William Pitt ~~

"Scerrorism: Terrorism of a population by the media, carried out by reporting acts of terror that might happen but never actually do."
~~ Bonny Stilwell ~~

"There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which can not fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance...that principle is contempt prior to investigation."
~~ Herbert Spencer ~~

"We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order. "
~~ David Rockefeller ~~

"The citizen who sees his society's democratic clothes being worn out and does not cry it out, is not a patriot, but a traitor."
~~ Mark Twain ~~

"The biggest conspiracy of all is the claim that there are no conspiracies!"

"War is the public agenda for the hidden desires of a private elite"
~~ Bodazey ~~

"If the New World Order agenda is not realized by the terrorist attacks on America and if American's don't agree to give up their weapons and relinquish their sovereignty to the New World Order, the next attack will be the use of chemical, biological and/or atomic warfare against the American people. The architects of the New World Order will not hesitate to use as a last resort an atomic or hydrogen bomb in a major American city."
~~ Reference Op Ed page of the New York Times 9/24/01 ~~

"No matter what political reasons are given for war, the underlying reason is ALWAYS economic."
~~ A.J.P.Taylor, British Historian ~~

"It's really not a number I'm terribly interested in."
~~ General Colin Powell ~~
[When asked about the number of Iraqi people who were slaughtered by Americans in the 1991 "Desert Storm" terror campaign (200,000 people!)]

"I will never apologize for the United States of America - I don't care what the facts are."
~~ President George Bush 1988 ~~
[Bush was demonstrating his patriotism by excusing an act of cold-blooded mass-murder by the U.S. Navy. On July 3, 1988 the U.S. Navy warship Vincennes shot down an Iranian commercial airliner. All 290 civilian people in the aircraft were killed. The plane was on a routine flight in a commercial corridor in Iranian airspace. The targeting of it by the U.S. Navy was blatantly illegal. That it was grossly immoral is also obvious. Except to a patriot.]

"To maintain this position of disparity (U.S. economic-military supremacy)... we will have to dispense with all sentimentality and day-dreaming.... We should cease to talk about vague and... unreal objectives such as human rights, the raising of the living standard and democratization. The day is not far off when we are going to have to deal in straight power concepts.... The less we are then hampered by idealistic slogans, the better."
~~ George Kennan ~~
[Director of Policy Planning U.S. State Department 1948]

"If they turn on the radars we're going to blow up their goddamn SAMs (surface-to-air missiles). They know we own their country. We own their airspace... We dictate the way they live and talk. And that's what's great about America right now. It's a good thing, especially when there's a lot of oil out there we need."
~~ U.S. Brig. General William Looney ~~
(Interview Washington Post, August 30, 1999) [Referring, in reality, to the brutal mass-murder of hundreds of civilian Iraqi men, women and children during 10,000 sorties by American/British war criminals in the first eight months of 1999]

"The greatest crime since World War II has been U.S. foreign policy."
~~ Ramsey Clark ~~

[Former U.S. Attorney General under President Lyndon Johnson]

"I believe that if we had and would keep our dirty, bloody, dollar soaked fingers out of the business of these [Third World] nations so full of depressed, exploited people, they will arrive at a solution of their own. And if unfortunately their revolution must be of the violent type because the "haves" refuse to share with the "have-nots" by any peaceful method, at least what they get will be their own, and not the American style, which they don't want and above all don't want crammed down their throats by Americans."
~~ General David Sharp ~~
[Former United States Marine Commandant 1966]

"We have no honorable intentions in Vietnam. Our minimal expectation is to occupy it as an American colony and maintain social stability for our investments. This tells why American helicopters are being used against guerrillas in Colombia and Peru. Increasingly the role our nation has taken is the role of those who refuse to give up the privileges and pleasures that come from the immense profits of overseas investment."
~~ Martin Luther King, Jr. ~~
["A Time to Break the Silence" speech given at Riverside Church New York City April 4, 1967]

"Death squads have been created and used by the CIA around the world - particularly the Third World - since the late 1940s, a fact ignored by the elite-owned media."

"The U.S.A. has supplied arms, security equipment and training to governments and armed groups that have committed torture, political killings and other human rights abuses in countries around the world."

["United States of America - Rights for All" October 1998]

"We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the world - no longer a Government of free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men."
~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~
[U.S. President during World War I]

"We must become the owners, or at any rate the controllers at the source, of at least a proportion of the oil which we require."
~~ British Royal Commission...agreeing with Winston Churchill's policy towards Iraq, 1913 ~~

"What we want to have in existence, what we ought to have been creating in this time is some administration with Arab institutions which we can safely leave while pulling the strings ourselves; something that won't cost very much, which the Labour government can swallow consistent with its' principles, but under which our economic and political interests will be secure. If the French remain in Syria we shall have to avoid giving them the excuse of setting up a protectorate. If they go, or if we appear to be reactionary in Mesopotamia, there is always the risk that [King] Faisal will encourage the Americans to take over both, and it should be borne in mind that the Standard Oil company is very anxious to take over Iraq."
~~ Sir Arthur Hirtzel ~~
Head of the British government's 'India Office Political Department.' 1919 ~~

"If war aims are stated which seem to be solely concerned with Anglo-American imperialism, they will offer little to people in the rest of the world. The interests of other peoples should be stressed. This would have a better propaganda effect."
~~ Private memo from The Council of Foreign Relations to the US State Department, 1941

"Our strategic and security interests throughout the world will be best safeguarded by the establishment in suitable spots of 'Police Stations', fully equipped to deal with emergencies within a large radius. Kuwait is one such spot from which Iraq, South Persia, Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf could be controlled. It will be worthwhile to go to considerable trouble and expense to establish and man a 'Police Station' there."
~~ British Foreign Office, policy memo, 1947

"We have about 60% of the world's wealth but only 6.3% of its' population. In this situation we cannot fail to be the object of envy and resentment. Our real task in the coming period is to devise a pattern of relationships which will permit us to maintain this position of disparity. We need not deceive ourselves that we can afford today the luxury of altruism and world benefaction. We should cease to talk about such vague and unreal objectives as human rights, the raising of living standards and democratisation. The day is not far off when we are going to have to deal in straight power concepts. The less we are then hampered by idealistic slogans, the better."
~~ George Kennan ~~
Former Head of the US State Department Policy Planning Staff, Document PPS23, 24th February 1948

"I came to America because of the great, great freedom which I heard existed in this country. I made a mistake in selecting America as a land of freedom, a mistake I cannot repair in the balance of my lifetime." ~~ Albert Einstein, 1947 ~~
