War on Terror looks like a fraud


Contrary to the "patriots" who try to use the deaths of our soldiers in Afghanistan to stifle debate on Canada's involvement in the War on Terror, I would say that as new evidence presents itself, we would indeed be cowards to ignore it simply because we've lost troops in the field and are therefore blindly committed to the mission.

And new evidence is piling up around us, arguably strong enough to declare the whole War on Terror an undeniable fraud.
With many Americans (including academics and former top U.S. government officials) now questioning even the physical facts of 9/11 and seriously disputing the "militant Islam" spin, with the media more brain-dead than it's been in our lifetimes, now is not the time for jingoism and blind faith in the likes of Cheney, George W. Bush and Robert Gates.

The Sun?

Is "The Sun" in Winnipeg a typical right-wing red-meat rag like in other cities or what?

I don't know, but I just

I don't know, but I just sent him an email asking him to follow up with a second article stating the reasons why so many Americans quote the official story, along with a few suggestions of course.Laughing

Shocked, I tell you.

Is "The Sun" in Winnipeg a typical right-wing red-meat rag like in other cities or what?

Yup. That's the one. And this is the editor nonetheless. It just proves that Truth and conscience are not partisan issues. I was shocked when I picked up this paper today and was confronted with the truth. I sent him a heartfelt thank you and I encourage everyone to do the same. Whenever people like John dare to speak the truth it's inevitable that he will be criticized and harrassed. I'm sure a little encouragement would be appreciated and would help our cause. Oh yeah this is on top of the positive Calgary Herald article a couple weeks ago.
Does Canada rock or what?

Then this is significant.

We should support him.


Send a brief but congratulatory note. We need media of all kinds to know that millions of people support the pursuit of truth in the War on Terror.

This is a major relief for a Canadian.

I've been working very hard to get politicians or the media of any kind to even acknowledge the issue, this is fantastic. (They've known for years by the way.) Canada can free itself of this vast lie, finally.

This is crazy...good!

I am also shocked, as a Winnipeger the sun is the last place I thought I would read this. Everyone always makes fun of how how trashy, right-wing and sensationalistic it is...this is wicked!

Moscow police beat anti-Putin protesters


By DOUGLAS BIRCH, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 46 minutes ago

MOSCOW - Riot police beat and detained protesters as thousands defied an official ban and attempted to stage a rally Saturday against President Vladimir Putin's government, which opponents accuse of rolling back freedoms Russians have enjoyed since the end of Soviet communism.

A similar march planned for Sunday in St. Petersburg has also been banned by authorities.

A coalition of opposition groups organized the "Dissenters March" to protest the economic and social policies of Putin as well as a series of Kremlin actions that critics say has stripped Russians of many political rights. Organizers said only about 2,000 demonstrators turned out.

Thousands of police officers massed to keep the demonstrators off landmark Pushkin Square in downtown Moscow, beating some and detaining many others, including Garry Kasparov, the former world chess champion who has emerged as the most prominent leader of the opposition alliance.

Police said 170 people had been detained but a Kasparov aide, Marina Litvinovich, said as many as 600 were — although about half were released quickly. Kasparov, whom witnesses said was seized as he tried to lead a small group of demonstrators through lines of police ringing the square, was freed late Saturday after he was fined $38 for participating in the rally.

"It is no longer a country ... where the government tries to pretend it is playing by the letter and spirit of the law," Kasparov said outside the court building, appearing unfazed by his detention.

"We now stand somewhere between Belarus and Zimbabwe," he said.

It was the fourth time in recent months that anti-Putin demonstrations — all called Dissenters Marches — have been broken up with force or smothered by a huge police presence.

The weekend's marches were being closely watched as a barometer of how much of a threat, if any, opposition forces pose to the Kremlin as Russia prepares for parliamentary elections in December and a presidential vote next spring.

Putin, whose second and last term ends in 2008, has created an obedient parliament and his government has reasserted control over major television networks, giving little air time to critics.

TV newscasts on Saturday reported the protests, but gave as much or more time to a pro-Kremlin youth rally held near Moscow State University.

Later, police charged into a crowd of about 200 demonstrators outside the police precinct where Kasparov was being held, beating protesters with nightsticks and fists.

Kasparov and his allies mustered, by their own reckoning, about 2,000 people — far fewer than the 30,000 people who patronize the McDonald's restaurant at Pushkin Square on an average day.

But some protesters said they were not discouraged by the small turnout or intimidated by the overwhelming force marshaled to block the rally.

Andrei Illarionov, a former Putin economic adviser who has become a Kremlin critic, pointed out that in 1968 only six people appeared in Red Square to protest the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia.

"This is a crime against the Russian constitution," he said. "This country is not free anymore and the main criminal in Russia right now is the authorities."

About 100 of the detained protesters belong to the ultranationalist National Bolshevik Party, party spokesman Alexander Averi said. But he said Eduard Limonov, the novelist who heads the party known for street theater and political pranks aimed at Putin, evaded a detention attempt.

Organizers sought permission to gather on Pushkin Square, a traditional site for protests, but city officials rejected the request. Instead, they approved Turgenev Square, about a mile east and away from the city's commercial and cultural hub.

Organizers refused to cancel plans for the Pushkin Square rally and protesters started to arrive before 11 a.m. Police began seizing them a few at a time.

A 23-year-old woman, who gave her name only as Maria, said she and her husband, Andrei, were coming out of the subway when officers grabbed him.

"We didn't do anything," she said, tears rolling down her face as she watched her husband being hustled into a police truck. "We just wanted to see what would happen."

Viktor Vinokourov, a 67-year-old pensioner, watched the detentions from a nearby sidewalk, holding a hand-scrawled sign declaring: "I Don't Agree." A young man in a leather coat, apparently a plainclothes security officer, snatched it out of his hands.

Around noon, several hundred protesters headed away from Pushkin Square toward the sanctioned demonstration site, marching past startled motorists while chanting "Putin get out!" and "We need a new Russia!"

As they walked arm-in-arm down a main thoroughfare, a police cordon blocked their path. Some in the crowd ran forward and police charged, their truncheons flailing.

A Japanese journalist suffered a gash on the head and was treated by a policeman in a riot helmet. Eventually the crowd of protesters melted into side streets, and joined about 1,000 demonstrators at the authorized site.

Hundreds of police and soldiers surrounded the square, but let demonstrators in after checking them for weapons.

Mikhail Kasyanov, Putin's first prime minister but now a leading opponent, denounced the arrests and beatings in a speech at Turgenev Square.

"Everyone should ask the question: What is happening with our authorities — are they still sane, or have they gone mad?" he said, as the crowd chanted "Shame on the government."

Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov, who observed the march, said authorities were only trying to maintain order, not to interfere with the exercising of political rights.

"We live in a democratic country, a free country, and we give the possibility to everybody to express their agreement or disagreement," he said, in remarks carried on Russia's Channel 1 television.

War on terror looks like a fraud.

Well as my daddy use to say........"No shit Red Rider".........Seriously, it is good to see that people are finally beginning to wake-up. It's a shame it wasn't an editor of an American newspaper.

Cheech and Chong

Looks like dog shit . .

Smells like dog shit . ..

Tastes like dog shit . . .

Good thing we don't step in it!


my Grandad used to say....

"when something gets rotten enough, it dies of its own stink".

Just wrote him an email

saying thank you for having the courage to write that.

I am so incensed at the raping and pillaging of other countries by the Imperialistic US administration, it makes my blood boil.... bastards! Stealing their money while they die on the streets... absolute scum.

Excuse my profanity but I just can't stand it.


"Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet." Albert Einstein

A lesson in Latin

Terra means earth.

Someone (forget who) noted that the so-called war on terror - certianly saying it with a NY or New ENgland accent - sounds a lot like a war on "terra".

Is it the neo-cons way of saying rather subliminally that they are taking over the world?

Your president is a programmed imbecile.

"Terra means earth."
Rob. Your comment that it is some kind of subliminal message is understandable but it is really just coincidence that your president is a programmed imbecile and can't properly promounce the word.
Please don't take offence. Most of us realize Bush doesn't represent the majority of Americans.

Subliminal Speak

Has anyone noticed this on Faux News? I'm pretty sure O'Reilly and the circus clowns have started pronouncing Tehran as "Terror-ran". Subliminal is effective.

did you know....

in occult numerology; FOX is the equivalent of 666.

Don't worry

offense? None taken.

But to get angry at him is like getting angry at the sock puppet for singing poorly.

My short email to the editor

War on Terror IS a fraud. It's about time media speak the truth to the government and INFORM the population about what's really going on.

Oh, and also, if you take the time to look carefully and OBJECTIVELY into the event of 911, you'll see for yourself that it's an inside job.

Thanks for this article, as you must realize that mainstream media can't afford anymore to cover-up the big lie.

Ya know...

That's the second time in a week I've seen my quote referenced. I wonder if some journalists are reading blogger.

This is a "right wing" mag? Like the Weekly Standard?

"So where is the oil going to come from?... The Middle East, with two-thirds of the world's oil and the lowest cost, is still where the prize ultimately lies."

Richard Cheney - Chief Executive Of Halliburton

Quoting Jon Gold.

Jon. I don't know the Weekly Standard but I imagine the "Sun" family is similar to the New York Post. They appeal to the LCD of human intellect. That's why it's such a surprise this editor spoke the Truth. It goes to show people of conscience can sometimes end up where least expected.
As to your insinuation that journalists research the 9/11 Truth websites, well I certainly hope they do, because if they don't they don't deserve to be called "inestigative journalists." After all, 9/11 is the defining issue of our generation.
Vive le Truth, phaedrus.

The Weekly Standard...

Is run by Bill Kristol. It doesn't get much more right wing than that.

"So where is the oil going to come from?... The Middle East, with two-thirds of the world's oil and the lowest cost, is still where the prize ultimately lies."

Richard Cheney - Chief Executive Of Halliburton

Instead of revealing some 9/11 truth, PBS is going to air a

six-night, prime-time extravaganza of CIA/NSA piss beginning Sunday night. They will highlight: superman Osama; Muslim Jihadists; Islamic suicide bombers; al-Qaida maniacs; terrorist fanatics; blessed, democracy-spreading U.S. soldiers; etc.

Truly sickening how corrupted the corporate media has become, including PBS!


PBS is Pitiful Broadcast Service

dial up WBUR, Boston Publc Radio, to listen to "Hear and Now" or "On Point" where we learn all about the new Iraqi constitution featuring professors from the Military Institute of Technology.

I called in and spoke with "experts" several times. I tried to tell them the emperor had no/nada/zip clothes but they accused me of being naive and not worldly.

"We've got to give this baby democracy a chance to grow up"


PBS = Propaganda Broadcasting Service

and we need to flood their contact page about this major week-long propaganda blitz.

Let's give them a massive dose of the truth, shall we?

Please make specific, civil and informed comments that correct the misinformation they present and express your outrage at the lack of objective reporting on these issues.

Thanks in advance.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

Norwegian Translation

I have made a word for word translation into Norwegian, and have sent John Gleeson an email requesting permission to print the thing in my own blogs.

My Norwegian Blog CQD (after the old emergency morse code) was originally about Peak Oil. However, 911 became very prominent, because you can arguably make the case that 911 was caused by Peak Oil. As I began to cover the emerging 911 truth story, I split the blog into two creating CQD 911, which is linked to on this Site.

John Gleeson's article is excellent insomuch as it highlights what might have been the motive for 911. I submit to you that we are at the beginning of a new age, and that Chenney's comments from 1999 confirm this.

It's all about the oil, in my opinion.

The real terrerwrists

are at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. When the rest of America wakes up to this criminal cabal then only then shall we truly be free. It is time for a new revolution. IMHO we have been too nice for too long.The US is dire need of regime change.Evidence and testimony contrary to the official story has been in circulation for some time. It will be just a matter of time before this thing blows wide open. Remember all roads lead to 9/11. I teat every day as if it is the 11th of every month. I have been alienated from so called friends,well recieved by some,been spit at by others, stuff thrown at me etc, I DONT GIVE UP! I love this country! Thanks for letting me vent. Strength in numbers.......

The hottest places in Hell are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality. ~ Dante Alighieri

I love

your quote from Dante. I couldnt agree more.


Sadly, our fellow Americans haven’t learn how to be adults…they buy a beer and think they are adults, they own a car and think they are adults but, they are missing something important…adults know how to say I made a mistake and will correct that mistake.
So, adults…you know that we were lied to about Iraq…so are you going to correct your mistake of following along?

Digg and the real infowar?

Please consider digging this article and engaging the moonbats and OCT advocates on Digg.


I mean look at this blatant COINTELPRO


Reading the comments on here left by the OCT-TROLLS just makes me angry!!

"From a drop of water, a logician could infer the possibility of an Atlantic or a Niagra without having seen or heard of one or the other. So it is that my name is Sherlock Holmes, it is my business to know what other people don't know"


Sent my Thank You note to Mr. Gleeson...
I asked him to keep going,
