Letter to the Anti-War Movement
Friday, 20 March 2009 06:58

“That which you do not resist and mobilize to stop you will learn – or be forced – to accept.”

From the Call to Drive out the Bush Regime, 2005

Barack Obama is sending a surge of 30,000 troops to Afghanistan.

An antiwar movement that does not move immediately to oppose the Obama doctrine of shifting the central front of the war on terror to Afghanistan, no longer deserves to be called an anti-war movement.

Millions of people voted for Obama because they thought he would end the war. Yet Obama filled his cabinet with Hillary “Obliterate Iran” Clinton, Robert Gates, James Jones and Susan Rice (“a kettle of hawks,” said Jeremy Scahill).

He is not only continuing an unjust war by leaving 80,000 troops and 17 permanent bases in Iraq, and all over the region, including nuclear carrier-led task forces with enough firepower to "annihilate" any country in the region, but Obama is enlisting many progressive sections of society to support and be complicit in waging a spreading war for U.S. hegemony and imperialist expansion known as the “war on terror.”

The election of the first Black president is effectively re-branding preemptive and illegal wars of aggression to make us feel good about them. Massive anti-war sentiment and action is already being transformed into flag-waving patriotism, passivity and capitulation in the face of horrors.
The U.S. military, stretched thin and full of discontent after six years of carnage in Iraq, is now being replenished. Military recruiters are targeting Black and Latino youth, telling them if they sign up now they’ll be fighting for Obama. Their lives will be expended as cannon fodder in a brutal war of occupation that is not in their interests.

The U.S. war on Afghanistan is an unjust war of aggression—the supreme war crime. The Bush regime occupied Afghanistan and drove out the Taliban regime, not to bring democracy and liberation to the Afghan people, but to control Afghanistan and spread the U.S.empire, with the goal of permanent domination of the Middle East.

The “war on terror” begun after 9/11 by the U.S. was not just a campaign against the Taliban, al-Qaeda, and Osama bin Laden, but a broad, global war to continue the U.S. position as unchallenged global superpower. This is not a war to free people from warlords of Islamic fundamentalism, a movement the U.S. funded and armed, and ironically, spread, when it was aligned with the US against the Soviet Union in the 1970’s.

The war in Afghanistan is and will be fought the same way the war in Iraq is being fought. Most of the people killed are civilians, with the U.S. justifying collateral damage and collective punishment, secret prisons, denial of due process and torture. It is wrong, unjust, illegitimate and immoral. And it won’t be otherwise, no matter who is president. There is no such thing as a “good” war on terror.

The U.S. occupiers consider any large gathering of Afghans inherently hostile, hence the repeated bombings of wedding parties. Even the U.S. puppet, Hamid Karzai, is warning the U.S. to stop killing civilians. And it is NOT a war to free women. According to afghan-web.com/woman/, after 7 years of US occupation:

• Every 30 minutes, an Afghan woman dies during childbirth
• 87 percent of Afghan women are illiterate
• 30 percent of girls have access to education in Afghanistan
• 1 in every 3 Afghan women experience physical, psychological or sexual violence
• 44 years is the average life expectancy for women in Afghanistan
• 70 to 80 percent of women face forced marriages in Afghanistan

The deadly and self-perpetuating cycle between the terror directed at civilians by the Islamic fundamentalists fighting against the U.S. and the terror of the U.S. wars of aggression directed at civilians can only be stopped by the people of those countries, combined with the actions of people in this country who refuse to strengthen either side.

We in this country, and those of us in this movement, have a choice. We can side with “our” government, with the “good war” fought in our names, and act like American lives are more important than anyone else’s lives.

Or we can show the people living in the Middle East, and the world, that in the U.S. there is a difference between the people and their government, and that the people are taking responsibility to end an unjust war and the war crimes that have been carried out in our name. We can act like we care about the whole planet.

The antiwar movement of the last several years which confined itself to lobbying and campaigning served to demobilize mass protest. Now this movement must shake off this passive complicity and act once again in a way that is so visible and powerful it can be seen all over the world, especially in the countries that have been targets of this aggression.

An antiwar movement that does not have the principle and the conviction to oppose the crimes carried out by our government; that dodges the immediate escalation of the war in Afghanistan, and the threat of war on other places; that chooses to focus on “domestic issues” when people of the Middle East are counting on us, will commit unconscionable betrayal.

An antiwar movement needs to show common cause with the people of the world and not common cause with war criminals. Too much is at stake for the progressive movement to consult with or sound like the generals or the Commander in Chief. Too much is at stake to “wait and see” whether this is all going in the direction Obama says it is.

Visible action is urgently needed:

Six Years of Illegitimate War – STOP the occupations of Iraq & Afghanistan!
*Thursday March 19: First national protests of the war under the Obama presidency ~ everywhere
*Saturday March 21: United protests at the Pentagon, San Francisco, Los Angeles.
The USA PATRIOT Act, the Military Commissions Act, and Obama’s FISA Act must be repealed; the U.S. torture state must be dismantled, and secret rendition ended.

Prosecute the war criminals of the Bush Regime!

If we want to stop the continued horror of the largest imperialist power on earth dropping bombs, sending death squads and torturers anywhere with impunity – in our names -- the only way is to face up to reality, tell the truth, and get out to the people with the message that we must stop the crimes of our government.

OK, So They Outlasted The bush Regime

National Office is in New york City. Top organizer is Bob:

"Bob Parsons"


Barack moves quickly.

He's talking about sending 400,000 into Afghanistan. Out with the old war and in with the new war.

Where are all these "Obama anti-war supporters"? How come they are not raising hell against these unjust wars?

Here are a few in Dallas

They still think BIn Ladin did 9/11 - that's how come

As long as our fellow Americans believe the Official Conspiracy Theory, they will
not be able to think clearly. That is why 9/11 Truth is the key to all these other horrors.
Our fellow Americans have been successfully terrorized. We have to understand that.

That is ME in the 9/11 T shirt...

the bottom says "got doubts?" but it is covered by the sign. The North Texas group
participated in this and gave a lot of information (broadsheets and DVDs) to all receptive.

How about putting up signs "Is Bin Ladin 911 innocent ?"

Herblay FRANCE

bonjour ,

certainly Bin Ladin is responsable for many deaths in Afghanistan fighting against the Russians, etc

Howerver I doubt very much it was his men that placed the military nano thermite / thermate in the three tall WTC towers.


Thinking about it, how do we know it was Bin Ladin ? Yes, George Bush told us. But he never stop lying how can we be sure he is not lying on this ? Colin Powell also told us but he as well is a very big and dangerous liar. He lied to the honorable United Nations so that America could invade Irak


He even stupidly promised the world a White Paper after the invasion of Afghanistan proving Bin Ladin's guilt. Anyone seen his evidence ?


Many times ( ~15 times) I have carried the poster below which shocks people at first and then gives me an opportunity to explain on what grounds I am questionning wether Bin Ladin was behind the 911 attacks. Last Monday and Tuesday we had the chance to see the italian Documentary "ZERO" which does an excellent job on the problem "Did Bin Ladin do it ?"

Ask the unpardonable question : Was it really Bin Ladin who was behind 911 ?

This is what happens in unjust wars. Be it Afghanistan, Iraq

or Palestine.

Israeli Army T-Shirts Mock Dead Palestinian Babies, Bombed Mosques


(Pls see the comments at HuffingtonPost)

Dead babies, mothers weeping on their children's graves, a gun aimed at a child and bombed-out mosques - these are a few examples of the images Israel Defense Forces soldiers design these days to print on shirts they order to mark the end of training, or of field duty. The slogans accompanying the drawings are not exactly anemic either: A T-shirt for infantry snipers bears the inscription "Better use Durex," next to a picture of a dead Palestinian baby, with his weeping mother and a teddy bear beside him. A sharpshooter's T-shirt from the Givati Brigade's Shaked battalion shows a pregnant Palestinian woman with a bull's-eye superimposed on her belly, with the slogan, in English, "1 shot, 2 kills." A "graduation" shirt for those who have completed another snipers course depicts a Palestinian baby, who grows into a combative boy and then an armed adult, with the inscription, "No matter how it begins, we'll put an end to it."

The CONSTITUTION is NOT going to "collapse" into pulverized dust no matter how much thermate/explosives or planes they throw at it

We must not lose our focus on 9/11 Truth

Just my opinion.

Iraq,Afghanistan, Iran, The Mid-East in general

Mercenary Wars in Africa, Narco-Wars in S. America etc etc are ALL Related to 911.

One way or another.

Its the same Global Military Industrial Complex.

Sowing Seeds of hatred, Using the British Imperial
Strategy of DIVIDE AND CONQUER to try to Rule the World.

911 was just another chapter in their Grand ChessBoard Strategy.

I see the Conflict in the Mid-East as part of a plan to perpetuate a Long-Term Global "Security" State.

What's happening in Palestine,Iraq will come to American cities and towns if we don't get a proper resolution to 911.

Its Relevant. No loss of focus here.

The CONSTITUTION is NOT going to "collapse" into pulverized dust no matter how much thermate/explosives or planes they throw at it

"We must not lose our focus on 9/11 Truth"

TRUE! Work to get the vocal few to understand that 9/11 Truth may be the only way to end the wars. This is what we were doing.

The anti-war movement is so confused, I doubt you'll hear much from them for a while. IMO they are as much of a problem as the hawks and neocons, because now the war is condoned by the "right" AND the "left," and therefore the "anti-war" crowd needs to be viewed as part of the problem. I'm sure Bush is happy. We need to keep hammering away at smashing the false left/right, liberal/conservative paradigm and expose it for the illusion that it is. The problem is not simply with the people who hold office, it's with the (false) paradigm, itself. Thankfully, most truthers know this.

Our message to the "anti-war" movement is simple: "You're either with us, or with the war mongers." Period. That's the only honest paradigm as far as war is concerned in the 21st century. We need to take the lead and have them start following us. The timing couldn't be better for 9/11 truth, if we act swiftly and stay on-message – 9/11 truth ends all wars. The truth is our message on the war is not the same as the anti-war crowd -- it goes much further than "blow-back," which is essentially the paradigm they are still caught up in. Not that America isn't vulnerable to blow-back from our imperialist posture, but what's great about the 911 truth movement is that where everyone else sees a dilemma, we see an opportunity for some truth. That's why I think we're gonna win. Eventually, they are all going to run out of lies to believe in. Let's help make that happen -- real soon.

Well expressed paragraphs! thanks.

"seminal" (definition)--> "containing or contributing the seeds of later development"

"9/11 is the seminal event of our time. It is the event that should radicalize the people of this country. If any one event would, it is this one.
It is you who are the torch-bearers with respect to that truth. And you have to continue to bear that torch and try to get it into the mainstream, and not be discouraged when you don’t.
And not be discouraged when you get discredited, and when you get attacked and when you are ignored, because that is the nature always of prophesy and prophets in their own time.
I ask you not to mourn the passing of democracy and of liberty in this country. Don’t mourn it, because mourning takes energy. It is negative. Don’t mourn the passing of democracy – Organize. Organize to restore it wherever it is possible for you to do so.
Steel your spines.
Inspire your children.
Then when the moment is right, rise again as though from the ashes, and rebuild this great land. "
--William F Pepper

Good advice

"And not be discouraged when you get discredited, and when you get attacked and when you are ignored, because that is the nature always of prophesy and prophets in their own time."

I could have used that advice 3 years ago when I first became familiar with Dr. Jones' research. I naively thought that my friends and relatives would pick up on the facts and realize the truth as quickly as I did. It's too late for me though, I became more and more discouraged to the point where I'm not useful to the truth movement anymore. At least others can learn from my mistakes.

I know how you feel

We all know how you feel.

Well said. I have nothing

Well said. I have nothing more to add.

you will soon see

... photos of WeAreChangeLA's big blue 9/11 Truth banners stretching for almost a full block at the ANSWER march in Los Angeles, Saturday 3/21. Believe me, they were not missed by anyone, including CNN, as they looked out their windows at the display passing by. I'm sure they were not missed by the helicopter hovering overhead either. A huge 9/11 Truth presence overall (it was a smaller anti-war march though, with Bush out, Savior in). Stacks of DVDs, Texas Truth Times, Rock Creek Free Press and DC911Truth Obama fliers distributed. A few cops and firefighters took the FirefightersFor911Truth fliers. Can't say that I saw more than a corner of one of the blue banners in TV coverage, but an ABC cameraman was interested and got materials to take back to his assignment editor. Will be waiting for that ... and waiting.

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

9/11 Truth for Peace...its False Flag Education Baby!

I have known for a dozen years now that the peace and anti-war movements were on their last legs and that they had been totally compromised by cointelpro for several decades.

Nothing in the Peace Movement's or Anti-War Movement's behavior has changed since the 60s-70s...except that they began sleeping with the Democrats in WDC. Point-Set-Match for cointelpro!

And of course, they totally ignored the webworld...just as they have ignored the 9/11 Truth Movement.

In street language all of this means that the existing peace groups are sleeping with the Pentagon...and have been cuddled up with them for quite some time.

So, quite frankly, this is why I came up with CI...Civil Informationing in Reno, NV in 2002-2003...something needed a MAJOR change regarding public peace activisms.

And then comes along the AMAZING 9/11 Truth Movement with its brilliant CIVIL INFORMATION tactics...

...along with the TRUTH that 9/11 was a well designed scheme to ramp up the US citizenry into yet another unpopular war all of which was designed to make the Pentagon and militarism even stronger..

Just think...Why do Iraq again? After all, ten years of sanctions had demolished almost everything in Iraq.

And here we are in 2009 and, quite frankly, the only real "peace" movement still alive and moving ahead in the "USofA" is the 9/11 Truth [for Peace] Movement...

So, what to do?


I suggest that we use more peace signs and symbols in our public actions...

I suggest that we ALWAYS educate the public about the concept of "False Flag Ops"...they will connect the dots on their own in their own schedule...

I suggest that we make it known in print, in conversations on the street, on our banners, in our handouts, and on our DVDs that the 9/11 Truth Movement is THIS CENTURY'S "Peace Movement".

Let everybody else figure it all out for themselves.

In their journey into the 9/11 Truth Rabbitt Hole, they will stumble upon something in there that triggers their good souls...and THEY will take it from there...as have we.

I also suggest that we trust that good people will do good things once they become educated and informed.

Bull horning at empty buildings and calling citizens "sheeple" is not the way to accomplish this.

Lets be CIVIL...


Lets help folks become better citizens because thats what they REALLY would like to become...

Right now less is more...

Love, Peace and Progress...with

Focus on 9/11 Truth.

Our goal in the 9/11 Truth Movement is to wake up millions to the crimes of 9/11. The crimes of 9/11 are the key. Focus on 9/11 with all possible energy. Delve into its core -- the dust, the players at NIST, the video evidence, the foreknowledge, the FOI information. Speak to your friends, family, and co-workers every day about this critical topic. Don't let up. Don't get distracted. 9/11 is the key. The dam will break.

Explicitly associating 9/11 Truth with the Peace Movement of the Sixties seems odd and confusing. The campaign for 9/11 Truth attempts to peel back the flimsy cellophane covering over a fresh pile of excrement. Society thought it looked like excrement but there was no smell, -- until ZOW! once the clear plastic comes off the stench is sickening. The crimes and cover-up of 9/11 are that toxic fecal mess -- a gigantic stinking psy-op.

Our unique power is that 9/11 facts are profoundly compelling. What value is added by claiming affinity to the anti-war Sixties? The 9/11 Truth Movement is much more than anti-war activism? The "Anti-War" meme offers little to our shocking-but-true narrative. We are the tip-of-the-spear, ace-in-the-hole, magic bullet, through-the-looking-glass guides to a better world. I feel empowered by 9/11 Truth. I don't need the Sixties to help me; I just need more strength.

Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

The more that we expose "9/11 Truth" to the masses...

The more that we expose 9/11 Truth on different venues, the more commonplace and prominently displayed it will become.

I agree with joining any and

I agree with joining any and all peace events with prominent signage and aggressive educating. I do not agree with 9/11 Truth modeling itself after some other past or present movement. Rather it should self-actualize and fully become itself.

Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

The 9/11 Truth Movement IS the Peace Movement...

Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES am I stating that we should cuddle up with or model the 9/11 Truth Movement after the activist movements of the 60s and 70s. I am stating the EXACT OPPOSITE...do NOT do what they do and please continue doing what we are doing.

The way I see it it was the Military Industrial Complex that created this whole attack scenario because the MIC had run out of enemies after the fall of the USSR. How could they justify their bloated budget every year [50%+ of our total federal budget] if they had nobody to FEAR? The Pentagon had lost its boogy man and created a bold and somewhat clever plan to replace the decades old boogy man with the FEAR of the Muslim world. This was also a perfect fit for Israel, and this is where Mossad comes into play. So, this modernized "Operation Northwoods" initiative served the two most powerful forces inside the beltway.

Existing peace movements are one trick ponies and the 9/11TM needs to remain creative, involved, informational, persistent and work in local neighborhoods first while helping internationally respected authors, researchers, filmmakers, scientists and other professionals bring 9/11 Truth out in larger circles within and outside the USofA.

NONE of this calls for:

"marching from nowhere...to nowhere...in front of nobody...only to be ignored by media and everybody else"...

The only viruses shared within the peace movements are colds and the flu they catch from each other when they are marching. However, as we all know, the amazing battery of DVDs, books, websites and credible people standing up for, and exposing the truths behind 9/11 are amazingly viral as they get handed out to and shared with the citizenry.

Now, I am still conducting weekly bannering and CI Civil Informationing in my local regions from Seattle to around the Olympic Penninsula...and I still have great success with responses being between 100 and 200 positive to every ONE negative...so, the "9/11 Truth...War and Peace" connection is working its way inside people's minds more and more easily and openly.

What the Peace movements did to undermine themselves was to be "reactive" to upcoming wars and to call for the "occassional march" or gathering to try and bring attention to issues of war and peace. In comparison, the 9/11 Truth for Peace Movement conducts civil actions on at least a monthly basis and many of us meet and perfom weekly AND we inform people about truth seeking and the 9/11 rabbit Hole.

I would like to see MORE weekly 9/11 Truth CI events. Personally, I have YET to have a bad day perfoming CI and I suggest that you look at www.911civilinfo.blogspot.com to get a feel for this concept. Should you want to read a better comparison between "then and now", visit www.robinhordon.tk ..its a website my Canadian friends have established which shows more information about why we should NOT duplicate last century's public activisms.

So, I am making it pefectly clear here, we should have NOTHING to do with the leadership of the original leadership of the Peace Movements because they are compromised and willingly ignorant....nor should we emulate their FAILURES!

However, there are people of peace out there who, if informed about the False Flag nature of the original plan of the attacks on 9/11, will not only become part of our new 9/11 Truth for Peace Movement, but they will pick up a laptop, do their own research and finally...they will get it...that 9/11/2001 WAS this century's "Pearl Harbor".

The bridge to reaching the greatest number of US citizenry, [people of peace and the average citizen], will come about by connecting Pearl Harbor...The Gulf of Tonkin...the BOUNCING BABIES in GWI...and the attacks 9/11/2001 with each other as being well designed "manipulations and psyops" that have been used to trick or lie people into supporting yet another otherwise unpopular war.

I suggest that we replace the signage of "9/11 was and Inside Job" with: "9/11 was a False Flag Attack" and use the various opportunities thusly created to bring this connection to the public's awareness. It will have far reaching and positive effects.

...the original Peace Movements OUT...the new peace movement...the 9/11 Truth Movement IN...

And once in the 9/11 Truth Rabbit Hole, citizens will learn not only about war and peace, but of all the mechanisms of corruption that rule this world. Obviously, the 9/11 Truth Movement is no "one trick pony"...nor does it discourage research and understanding of how we got to where we are. This alone far outstrips the old peace movements...by far!

Love, Peace and Progress...
