Deflating the HYPE - Can the Seemingly Imminent War with Iran be Stopped?

Article by John Bursill

Unfortunately it now appears that a war between the US and it's allies with Iran is imminent. By any military analysts assessment this has a real chance of changing the current multi-theatre war against terrorism and so called rogue/terrorist states into a real World War III scenario!

Following the Main Stream Media (MSM) in the west over the last few months, you would be sensing that many things have happened to support the war with Iran rationale, hearing that Iran wants a Nuclear bomb and would be prepared to use it against Israel and the US. Other alarming stories include Iran trading in weapons with "rogue states", Iran killing innocent people abroad, Iran's President is insane and wants to "wipe Israel off the map", Iran has been involved in terrorist plots/bombings and may attack inside the US and Iran is trading drugs. The list of baseless accusation goes on and on.

Dear Every Peace Activist,

The world dramatically changed on 9/11, though, not for the reasons that were given by the Bush administration less than twenty four hours after the attacks, but for reasons that are deeply disturbing, and revealing; reasons that are either unknown, or have been repressed by activists in the peace movement.

As we enter the ninth anniversary of the War on Terror, the war in Afghanistan is intensifying, tensions in Iraq are resurfacing, and the possibility of a U.S. led attack on Iran is growing daily. Reflection upon the central premises and objectives in America’s vast military enterprise in the Middle East has never been more urgent. The stakes have been raised. Questioning the official story of 9/11 is now a matter of human survival. We can not ignore the calling of history any longer. We live in a state of perpetual emergency; every moment is vital, every second counts, every day that passes is a missed opportunity to right a horrible wrong.

Veterans For Peace May Be First Anti-War Group to Demand a New 9/11 Investigation

Anti-war groups have long been regarded as deliberate gatekeepers to the 9/11 Truth (and anti-war) movement. But in 2009 VFP membership mushroomed with savvy new members who realized it wasn't enough to protest the war if you didn't protest the government lie that allowed it to happen. And most VFP members know the "Tonkin Resolution" was a deliberate lie – aka: "False Flag".

By 2008, an international team of scientists had published volumes of conclusive evidence for “explosive demolition” of the Twin Towers and WTC-7. This hard evidence and admissions by the 9/11 commission that they were "set up to fail" moved VFP members and leadership to pass a resolution to press for a new 9/11 investigation during their 2009 annual meeting.

THE RESOLUTION:

Working Draft - Misprision of Treason 9/11 Peace Action

This following is a working draft to propose to the 9/11 Truth Leader Teleconference group this Wednesday, and present as a final draft for support to the 9/11 truth community by the March 6th Conference in Pennsylvania - "Treason in America: 911, the Wars and Our Broken U.S. Constitution."

Please feel welcome to comment now on this following working draft for the campaign and action plan. The purpose is to highlight hard evidence of a 9/11 inside plot and cover-up, and threat to the US and world by its justification for false wars and destruction of the USA Republic and Constitution. Or it could be considered a campaign for the Misprision of a felony for crimes of murder or obstruction of justice.

Report from Boston

The Peace Movement versus the 9/11Truth movement

by Barrie Zwicker

What goes with the “split” between the anti-war movement and the 9/11Truth movement? Some light was shed on this regrettable reality in Boston the weekend of Jan. 30-31, 2010. On Saturday New England United (NEU), an umbrella group, held an anti-war strategy conference. The next day Northeast 9/11Truth held its strategy conference, in part an analysis of the previous day’s events.

As both a lifelong member of the peace movement, and a committed 9/11Truther, I attended all of the Saturday conference where I was a workshop leader, and the first half of the Sunday conference (having to leave early because of travel arrangements). My main points:

1) There is a split but it has not been initiated, nor is it maintained, by members of the 9/11Truth movement. Truthers stand just as proudly and tall in their opposition to war as anyone in the peace movement. Truthers also are just as fully dedicated to the goals of justice, equality and environmentalism as are anti-war activists.

2) The split is unilateral from the anti-war movement’s side, especially from leaders and organizers. Those at the grassroots level trust and take their cues from the leaders. The result is a widespread attitude toward 9/11Truth that ranges from scepticism to outright hostility. This is why I choose the heading “The Peace Movement versus the 9/11Truth Movement.”

3) A leading cause of the unilateral split is the work of planted agents of the state – spooks -- whose instructions are to do this splitting. The Chinese call such agents “splittists.” The peace movement has been around for decades, so there’s been loads of time for the national security state to install numerous agents within it. Added to their usual instructions to slyly foment divisiveness within peace groups and derail effective anti-war actions are new orders to combat the dynamic truth movement.

9-11 Truth has largest presence at LA Anti-War March!

WeAreChangeLA brought our banners to the Anti-War March in full force. We had almost 50 members show up to help the 9-11 Truth stand out in a very big way. Others who attended the march exclaimed that "the 9-11 people are taking all the attention".

We all had such a great time. If you have yet to partake in an outreach, visibility action with our beautiful banners, then you gotta come out and join us!

Thanks to new member Robert Ohneiser for an excellent edit. Robert also did most of the camera work. We are so lucky to have so much talent in WACLA. God, I love being an activist in LA.

Thank you Laurel for breakfast! Member Laurel treated anyone who could come to breakfast that morning.

Thanks again to everyone who participated. You all were a show stopper!!!

Organizing and Orchestrating the Rise of People Power and the "Fall" of 2007

Being that 'our' Congress has now shown its full hand about its willful impotence in dealing with treasonous war criminals complicit in mass murder, it is now clearly all about the power and avenues for strategic action of We the People. After Congressman Conyers chose to arrest some of our great patriots in this country, rather than push forth the process of impeachment which was laid out by the Founders to be used, regularly if necessary, in the case of mismanagement, conflicts of interest, unbecoming behavior and general ineptitude, it should give us serious pause in thinking about our strategic way forward. The entire administration is a conflict of interests. George Bush and Dick Cheney are the biggest racketeering corporatists in history. Mussolini could not have been prouder. But, I guess the Democratic Party is more interested in playing politics (stupidly and impotently I might add) than saving the Constitution of our Republic and the lives of our soldiers, the Iraqi people, the Iranian people and all the people who will soon be consumed in the total war of terror if we dont pull the plug quickly. Se La Vi, especially in what has become an all out District of Criminality. So what are we gonna do, give up and die?!

Of course not. Many if not most of us in the 9-11 Truth and Justice movement never had much if any confidence in our current crop of politicos in the first place. The 9-11 Truth and Justice Movement is a profound example of a people power movement, from the underground books that sell like crazy and the blogger armies, to the monthly street actions around the world and the guerilla infowar confrontational specialists. With much work to do between now and then, especially so we don't get false-flagged again, September 11th IS a big day, both symbolically and practically, for the movement. From the calls for a General Strike to the massive gathering planned that entire week for NYC, we can make that day the beginning of the coming "Fall" of 2007. There is resonance in fairly recent history for the rise of people power to bring down tyrannical regimes in the fall. In the fall of '89 two peaceful revolutions were thrown in totalitarian communist Eastern Europe:

Cindy Sheehan responds to the question of a new 9/11 investigation

Soggy grounds and howling winds met Philly 9/11 Truth as they hastened to reach thousands of Peace activists gathered in a field adjacent to the Lincoln Memorial. The original call was for Truthers to meet on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial however such was restricted due to police blockades protecting Pro-War demonstrators. As we explored the crowd, we found ourselves feeling like children who only get some of what they want for Christmas, seeing only a few 9/11 truth signs but no mass assembly. In light of these conditions we rushed back to the DC 9/11 Truth booth that we passed on our way into the rally and gripped handfuls of Truth paraphernalia. We fervently traversed the crowd handing out signage and requesting Truth activists to rally at the rear of the crowd. After about an hour of hard work, a small contingent assembled and the march toward the Pentagon began.
