On denial, Iraq and 9/11

As we all know, one of the major hurdles in waking people up is the denial of what governments and individuals are capable of doing and justifying. "They would never kill our own people" or "that is too monstrous an idea to consider".

I would like to point to a few documentaries that might open some eyes.

Fallujah - The Hidden Massacre (warning shocking footage) http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8905191678365185391

The Panama Deception http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-446387292666223710&q=panama+deception&total=145&start=0&num=10&so=0&type=search&p...

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5832390545689805144&q=revolution+will+not+be+televised&total=255&start=0&num=10&so...

The Ground Truth http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5188599301918606321&q=The+Ground+Truth&total=2061&start=0&num=10&so=0&type=search...

While not dealing with 9/11 specifically, they do show indiscriminate killing and carnage that is the modus operandi of all empires.

For what it is worth, Real Player allows you to download video content in the .flv codec. There are numerous programs that convert .flv files to DVD or other formats. I have found this to be a good way to obtain a DVD of anything found on Google Video or YouTube. The program I am fond of is called Super and is freeware (the site is a PITA to navigate to find the download but persistance is worthwhile. The program literaly will convert any file type to any other that I am aware of).

I typically try to purchase a DVD of anything I download (quality and support issues) but it is a great way for those who don't like watching endless video online to sit on the couch and touch up the knowledge base.

Realize that there is a hook for every fish. To me, the goal is opening eyes and minds to the reality of our existance. I personally come from the Democratic Socialist mindset but have no problem talking to far right conservatives. It is pretty easy to see how open someone is to conversation early on. Rather than confrontation and argument I bow out if the hack phrases come flying out (i.e. Liberal Media, Hitler was a leftist, Sadam had WMD, blah blah blah).

In fact I recently spoke at length with a business owner about 9/11 after opening up with a discussion about the stock market. This is a guy who has had a photo of George and Laura Bush on his wall for the past 7 years. After a long talk about the CIA, Federal Reserve, war etc I asked him about the photo....he says, sheepishly "I have been meaning to throw that thing away"....that is the kind of experience that makes what we do worthwhile.
