12.Mar.2004 -After Madrid: a strange sort of solidarity -The bombings in Madrid have understandably set off a huge wave of human solidarity across Spain + around Europe.

Yet in these uncertain times, it is a strange sort of solidarity.

Since nobody knows who planted the bombs, we are not certain who or what we are uniting and demonstrating against.

As Brendan O'Neill explains elsewhere on spiked, whoever is responsible, the bombings fit into a new pattern of terror for terror's sake,

where terrorism becomes an end in itself rather than a means to a political goal (see Terror for terror's sake).

The terrorists have no political cause against which we can all take a stand. There is no 'pro-bombing movement' to oppose;

no sooner had the Basque separatist movement Eta been blamed than the Basque people were staging protests against the Madrid atrocities.Reprinted from : https://www.spiked-online.com/Articles/0000000CA471.htm
12.Mar.2004 The New Labour government is now pointing to Madrid as 'proof' that those of us who protest about governments exaggerating the threat from terrorism are wrong. Of course terrorists can always stage a spectacular attack. Where Blair and co exaggerate the threat is in describing these attacks as a threat to the British and Western way of life - part of a final 'Armageddon'-scale battle between Good and Evil, as the prime minister put it last week. But while bombers can blow up trains, they cannot bring down civilisations - those tend to crumble from within.

The best lasting memorial to the dead of Madrid will be to get on with life.Reprinted from : https://www.spiked-online.com/Articles/0000000CA471.htm

02.Sep.2004 Korruptionsverdacht gegen Siemens-Manager -Bei ihrem Versuch, die Korruption im Konzern einzudämmen, hat die Münchner Siemens-Spitze einen herben Rückschlag erlitten.

Die Ermittlungen wurden auf hochrangige Bereichsmanager ausgeweitet.

01.Sep.2004 ...ergaben die Untersuchungen der Frankfurter Staatsanwälte, nutzten Untergebene Kleys noch bis zum Frühjahr 2002 ein kompliziertes Geflecht aus geheimen Konten in Liechtenstein und Abu Dhabi, um drei Enel-Topmanager mit rund sechs Millionen Euro zu schmieren. Ob ihr Chef davon wusste, ist noch unklar. Nach umfangreichen Durchsuchungen - Anfang Mai bei Siemens in Erlangen und Offenbach sowie in Privatwohnungen mehrerer Manager - sah es zunächst so aus, als würden nur drei untergeordnete Angestellte der Energiesparte beschuldigt. Inzwischen wird auch gegen den früheren Finanzchef der Erlanger Siemens-Sparte ermittelt - wegen des Verdachts der Bestechung.
00.Jun.2004 -erst Ende- war Kley in den Ruhestand gewechselt + für den SPIEGEL vergangene Woche nicht erreichbar. Ein Siemens-Sprecher lehnte jede Stellungnahme ab.
01.Sep.2004 The NYT piece today reflects continued efforts at the Pentagon to paint Franklin as a low-level desk grunt with little access to Paul Wolfowitz.

This last is just a lie.

In a conversation with me, Franklin indicated that he was in very close contact with Wolfowitz + Franklin offered to get me an audience. I said, "You don't read my web log, do you?"
CNN reports that AIPAC, which passed confidential Pentagon documents and information from Franklin to the Israelis, holds 2000 meetings a year with US Senators and Congressmen, leading to the passage of an average of 100 pro-Israel pieces of legislation every year!
Some readers have suggested that I have exaggerated AIPAC's hold on the US Congress.

But I have direct knowledge of senators + congressmen being afraid to speak out on Israeli issues because of AIPAC's reputation for targetting representatives for un-election if they dare do so.

And, it is easy to check. Look in the Congressional record.

Is there ever any speech given on the floor critical of Israeli policy, given by a senator or representative who goes on to win the next election?

And look at the debates in every other parliament in the world; there are such criticisms elsewhere.

The US Congress is being held hostage by a single-issue lobbying organization that often puts Israeli interests above US interests, as the spying scandal +

the attempts to thwart the prisoner exchange by Iran of high al-Qaeda operatives for Mujahedin-e Khalq terrorists demonstrate.
Indeed, you would expect the revelation of the FBI case to provoke congressional investigations of AIPAC. There won't be any, for obvious reasons.
Again, I underline that the USA Jewish community does not support most AIPAC positions (a majority are much closer to USA for Peace Now) +

that this issue has to do with a small fanatical leadership of a specific lobbying organization, nothing more.URL: https://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article6818.htm

Laura quite a reveal. Take a look at this article by Julian Borger at The Guardian. Perhaps there's a connection of the Israeli agent with what your reporting.

17.Jul.2003 -The Guardian-The spies who pushed for war https://www.guardian.co.uk/Iraq/Story/0,2763,999737,00.html

Julian Borger reports on the shadow rightwing intelligence network set up in Washington to second-guess the CIA + deliver a justification for toppling Saddam Hussein by force.

17.Jul.2003 -The Guardian-Excerpts: Office of Special Plans (OSP), was set up by USA defence secretary, Donald Rumsfeld + run by Doug Feith + Wolfowitz has a key role in coordinating.

USA OSP was an open + largely unfiltered conduit to the White House not only for the Iraqi opposition.

OSP also forged close ties to a parallel, ad hoc intelligence operation inside Sharon, Ariel's office in Israel specifically to bypass Mossad +

provide the Bush administration with more alarmist reports on Saddam's Iraq than Mossad was prepared to authorise.

"None of the Israelis who came were cleared into the Pentagon through normal channels," said one source familiar with the visits.

Instead, they were waved in on Mr Feith's authority without having to fill in the usual forms.

The exchange of information continued a long-standing relationship Mr Feith + other USA Washington neo-conservatives had with Israel's Likud party. https://www.warandpiece.com/blogdirs/001067.html
27.Aug.2004 The FBI investigation . For months, I have been working with my colleagues Paul Glastris + Josh Marshall on a story for the Washington Monthly about
pre-war intelligence.

In particular, the component I have been focusing on involves a particular series of meetings involving officials from the office of the undersecretary of defense for Policy Feith, Doug + Iranian dissidents.
As part of our reporting, I have come into possession of information that points to an official who is the most likely target of the FBI investigation into who allegedly passed intelligence on deliberations on USA foreign policy to Iran to officials with the pro-Israeli lobby group, AIPAC, as alleged by the
CBS report. That individual is Franklin, Larry a veteran DIA Iran analyst seconded to Feith’s OSP.

01.Sep.2004 One senior USA intelligence source told {EIR} that, were it not for Colin Powell pitching a fit, the Irangate II schemes would have gone a lot further. The extent to which this descent into Hell actually gripped the Bush-Cheney Administration is now a question for Federal investigators to ferret out.URL: https://www.rense.com/general56/supreb.htm   First published June, 2004
00.000.19---00.000.19-- Reagan-Bush [BGHW948] USA National Security Council NSC staffer North, Oliver used Ghorbanifar as the intermediary between the Iranian government + Israel.

00.000.19---00.000.19-- -then- Reagan-Bush [BGHW948] USA National Security Council NSC consultant Led een, a to the National Security Council NSC , had promoted Ghorbanifar as a trustworthy asset.

As part of an elaborate scheme to win the release of USA hostages in Lebanon, Ghorbanifar had brokered the secret sale of 508 TOW missiles to Iran.

Proceeds from the missile sales were illegally funneled to the Contra rebels, waging a USA and Israeli-backed insurgency against the Sandinista regime in Nicaragua.

00.Oct.1986 A plane carrying arms to the Contras was shot down over Nicaragua + an USA crew member was captured, along with documents and other evidence of the USA covert backing for the rebels.

This began what became the ``Iran-Contra scandal.''  

00.000.2001-00.000.2003 -When in- word of the Ledeen-Ghorbanifar – USA Pentagon machinations surfaced, Powell also accused Feith of running an illegal channel to the Iranian regime, undercutting his own sanctioned, but secret diplomacy with Iranian officials in Geneva, Switzerland.  

00.Aug.2003 -But as late as- Ledeen and Ghorbanifar were at it again, pressing their allies in Feith's office to open up contacts with the USA occupation forces in Iraq.

This time, Ghorbanifar claimed he had Iraqi Shi'ite contacts who could lead USA weapons inspectors to Iraqi weapons grade nuclear material, which had been smuggled into Iran. He claimed that his sources had ``saved USA lives'' by providing details of Iranian terror plots against USA GIs in Afghanistan.   When the so-called source insisted on a $250,000 payoff before he would reveal where the nuclear material was hidden, the deal fell through. Ledeen still insists that Ghorbanifar's information was solid.   URL: https://www.rense.com/general56/supreb.htm
01.Sep.2004 Indeed, the very same USA + Israeli + Iranian neo-con liars + shady arms dealers who brought you the Ollie North Irangate saga, have been caught, engaged in the same dirty dealings, all over again.   Chief among the Iran-Contra veterans, who are up to their eyeballs in the present Irangate II caper, is Ledeen, Michael the self-professed „universal fascist“, who is also, according to several USA intelligence community sources, a prime suspect in the scheme to forge Niger government documents, purporting that Iraq was seeking uranium precursor to build nuclear bombs.

A USA Federal grand jury is probing the forgery scheme.  

00.Dec.2001 Ledeen first moved to revive the Reagan-Bush era Iran connection, setting up a meeting between two Pentagon civilian neo-cons + Manucher Ghorbanifar, an Iranian arms dealer, whom the CIA denounced as a criminal and a liar. Three days of meetings took place in Rome, involving Harold Rhode, Larry Franklin, Ghorbanifar + two still-unidentified officials of the Iranian regime. According to an Aug. 9, 2003 {Washington Post} account, the Iranians were offering to help the United States in the war on terror. Citing an official Pentagon statement the previous day, the Post reported, ``The first contact, in late 2001, had been formally sanctioned by the USA government in response to an Iranian government offer to provide information relevant to the war on terrorism.''   Rhode and Ledeen go back 20 years, according to Ledeen's own acknowledgements, in a recent book. Both are proteges of leading British intelligence operative Bernard Lewis. And both are also prime boosters of Chalabi.

23.Mar.2003 -Following the USA invasion of Iraq- Rhode was dispatched from Washington to Baghdad, to be the contact point between the Office of Special Plans and the INC chief.   Franklin, a Defense Intelligence Agency officer, was assigned to the Near East/South Asia shop at the Pentagon, where he served as the Iran desk officer, reporting to Bill Luti.   URL: https://www.rense.com/general56/supreb.htm
01.Sep.2004 One particularly bizarre item surfaced, as this particular neo-con group scrambled to defend their longtime Iraqi asset. Following the raid on Chalabi's home and offices, two attorneys, John Markham and Colette Goodman, fired off an angry letter of protest to the Bush Administration. Goodman, with the international law firm of Shea and Gardner, is the official registered lobbyist for the INC, according to papers on file with the Department of Justice. A leading attorney at Shea and Gardner is R. James Woolsey, the Clinton era CIA Director, who, as a member of the Bush Administration's Defense Policy Board, has been one of the biggest promoters of the urban legend that Saddam Hussein was behind the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on Washington and New York.   Lawyer John Markham, a longtime leading member of the overtly Satanic cult known as the Process Church, was later a Justice Department attorney, responsible for railroad prosecutions of Lyndon LaRouche. Markham, at the Boston USA Attorney's office, was a leading protege of William Weld, the Boston Brahmin who ran the ``Get LaRouche'' drive + was later defeated by John Kerry in a bid to enter the USA Senate.   - It Didn't Stop With Iran-Contra -   URL: https://www.rense.com/general56/supreb.htm
01.Sep.2004 Among the leading candidates to join convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Jay Pollard in the hoosegow, or at least, in the hall of shame, are: Assistant Secretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith; Near East South Asia/Office of Special Plans head William Luti; Feith deputies Harold Rhode, Abram Shulsky and Michael Rubin; Office of Special Plans staffer Col. Bill Brunner; and Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz. All have been known to maintain intimate ties to Chalabi. Another Irangate ``veteran'' and Chalabi booster, Elliott Abrams, who was convicted of perjury (and later pardoned by President George H.W. Bush), was named the top NSC official on the Middle East in late 2002, a post he still holds.   The authoritative Republican Party insiders newsletter, {The Big Picture}, reported on May 24, that, following the raids, an angry Chalabi phoned the Pentagon + demanded to speak to his longtime friend and patron Wolfowitz. Wolfowitz refused to take the call. Wolfowitz's snub mirrored the actions of other neo-cons, who are desperately clinging to their positions in the corridors of power at the Defense Department + the Office of the Vice President - + are, therefore, anxious to cleanse themselves of links to the now thoroughly discredited Chalabi.  

Even Mark Zell, the longtime law partner of Doug Feith, announced his break with Chalabi, accusing the INC chief of reneging on his vow to seize power in Baghdad, recognize the government of Israel, and reopen the oil pipeline between the Iraqi fields and the Israeli port of Haifa. Following the USA invasion and occupation of Iraq, Zell, a West Bank-based lawyer, had formed a Baghdad business partnership with Salem Chalabi, Ahmed's nephew and business front man, which reportedly arranged contracts for Israeli security firms for postwar ``reconstruction'' and security missions in ``liberated Iraq.''   Several well-placed USA + Israeli sources have claimed that the Chalabi-Zell firm arranged subcontracts, that allowed as many as 50 Israeli interrogators to work in Iraq. In January 2004, ``Jack'' London, the CEO of CACI--a northern Virginia-based company that provided interrogators at Abu Ghraib prison--traveled to Israel on a business junket, to drum up joint-venture business with Israeli security firms. According to a former top USA national security official, both CACI and Titan, the two USA firms implicated in the Abu Ghraib torture scandal, have had longstanding business dealings with Israeli high-tech companies. The Feith and Zell international law firm recently established a Washington-based front, FIST, dedicated to pairing up Israeli + USA high-tech companies for joint venture contracts on homeland security and Defense Department outsourcing.   Other neo-cons outside of government, including Michael Ledeen, Richard Perle, Kenneth Timmerman and Laurie Mylroie, are equally hysterical, defending Chalabi, and even touting his work with the Iranians as being in the interests of the United States.   URL: https://www.rense.com/general56/supreb.htm

01.Sep.2004 Hartz-IV-Protest - SPD-Spitze fürchtet Zerreißprobe für Deutschland
Die Wut im Osten wächst, radikale Parteien legen in den Umfragen zu, im Westen lässt der Solidargedanke nach. Im Streit über die Sozialreformen zerfasert das, was eigentlich zusammengehört.

Zahlreiche Regierungspolitiker warnen vor einer Eskalation, die eine neue politische Spaltung Deutschlands nach sich ziehen könnte.

01.Sep.2004 Berlin - Der nordrhein-westfälische Ministerpräsident Peer Steinbrück warb an die Ostdeutschen gerichtet um Verständnis dafür, dass es auch im Westen Regionen mit sozialen Problemen gibt. Viele Kommunen in seinem Bundesland seien zum Teil auch wegen der Finanzleistungen für den Osten verschuldet.
Auch NRW-SPD-Chef Harald Schartau schlägt in diese Kerbe. Er warnt vor schwer wiegenden Risiken der Tiraden im Osten. Die Menschen dort sollten die Lage nicht weiter eskalieren lassen, mahnte er die Ostgenossen im SPD-Präsidium diese Woche. Auch im Westen sei die Stimmung inzwischen explosiv.
01.Sep.2004 New York - Mehr als 5000 Radler hatten sich nach offiziellen Angaben an der Demo beteiligt. Sie verlangten im Sprechchor ein Ende der Bush-Regierung und versuchten, mit Autofahrern ins Gespräch zu kommen. 250 Teilnehmer nahm die Polizei am Freitagabend (Ortszeit) fest.
New Yorks stellvertretender Polizeikommissar Paul Browne begründete die Festnahmen mit Ruhestörung und der massiven Verkehrsbehinderung durch die Demonstranten. Sie seien mehrfach gewarnt worden, hätten aber nicht darauf reagiert, erklärte Browne. Dagegen nannten Teilnehmer die Demo friedlich und das Vorgehen der Polizei absolut unnötig.
Bereits am Donnerstag hatte die Polizei 22 Demonstranten beim Protest gegen die regierenden Republikaner abgeführt. Das allein war das Dreifache aller Festnahmen, die die Polizei in Boston während des Parteitages der Demokraten von Bushs Herausforderer John Kerry vorgenommen hatte, berichtete die "New York Times" am Samstag

01.Sep.2004 18 Vor dem Wahlparteitag Hunderte Bush-Gegner festgenommen
Der Wahlparteitag der Republikaner in New York beginnt zwar erst in zwei Tagen. Aber die Polizei ist sichtbar nervös: Sie verhaftete bereits zahlreiche Bush-Gegner - unter ihnen die Teilnehmer einer Fahrraddemonstration.

01.Sep.2004 The two buses blew up 15 seconds apart, about 100 yards from a busy intersection in the center of Beersheba.

"People were screaming + yelling. Everybody was running," said witness Tzika Schreter, a 50-year-old college lecturer. URL: https://info.mgnetwork.com/printthispage.cgi?url=http%3A//ap.tbo.com/ap/breaking/MGBNS8GEKYD.html&oaspagename=www.tbo.com/ap/story.htm&image=tbologo80x60.jpg

White House spokesman Scott McClellan said President Bush had been briefed on the attack.

"We USA condemn these kind of terrorist attacks in the strongest possible terms. There's simply no justification for the killing of innocent civilians," McClellan said.

The State Department said Hamas must be put out of business. Spokesman Richard Boucher said action, not words, was needed as he again denounced Hamas as a terrorist organization. Unlike after some previous attacks, he did not call on Israel to be restrained in its response.

27.Aug.2004 Powell echoes Bush on Iraq errors - WASHINGTON, (UPI) USA Secretary of State Powell, Colin Friday echoed President's Bush's comments that "miscalculations" had been made in Iraq.

"You make plans, but what you have to be able to do is adjust those plans when faced with reality," USA Secretary of State Powell, Colin told Tony Snow's talk radio show.

USA Secretary of State Powell, Colin :"There is an old army expression, "No plan survives first contact with an enemy."

In a New York Times interview Friday, Bush said he made a "miscalculation of what the conditions would be" after USA troops went to Iraq."

USA Secretary of State Powell, Colin told Snow, however, the USA would continue to press ahead, supporting the interim Iraqi government, in its attempts to stabilize Iraq.

Blairs Gesundheit sei wahrscheinlich dadurch beeinträchtigt. Eine Sprecherin des Politikers wies die Behauptungen als lächerlich zurück.URL: https://www.spiegel.de/panorama/0,1518,315992,00.html

Featuring Ted Galen Carpenter, Vice President for Defense and Foreign Policy Studies, Cato Institute. The USA must take a sober look at its interests and its commitments in the Taiwan dispute.

There is a growing possibility that China will someday attempt to forcibly reincorporate Taiwan if the Taiwanese do not agree to reunification voluntarily.

USA Washington has made an implicit pledge to defend the island.

This commitment puts the USA at the mercy of decisions made in Taipei + Beijing + is likely to result in nothing but bad options for the USA down the road.

31.Aug.2004 -in den vergangenen Monaten- Die Preise auf den Weltmärkten waren in die Höhe geschossen.

Ein Grund dafür war die Ungewissheit über die Zukunft des russischen Ölkonzerns Jukos. Jukos steht kurz vor der Zerschlagung. Kritiker werfen Putin vor, dabei eine entscheidende Rolle zu spielen.
31.Aug.2004Der internationale Ölmarkt beruhigte sich nach Putins Ankündigung.

31.Aug.2004In London fiel der Preis für ein Barrel (159 Liter) Rohöl um mehr als einen $ auf 39,43 $.

31.Aug.2004Auch die Hoffnung auf Stabilität im Irak sei dafür verantwortlich, sagte Steve Turner, Analyst der Commerzbank Securities in London.
31.Aug.2004 In New York gab der Preis für Öl auf 41,80 $ nach. Die US-Ölpreise sind seit dem Rekordstand am 20. August von 49,40 $ um mehr als 14 Prozent abgesackt. URL: 
31.Aug.2004 Sotschi/London - 255 Millionen Tonnen wird Russland dieses Jahr exportieren.

01.Jan.2003-31.Dez.2003 hatte Russland 421 Millionen Tonnen Erdöl gefördert, 228 Millionen Tonnen flossen ins Ausland. Damit ist das Land nach Saudi-Arabien der größte Exporteur weltweit.
Bundeskanzler Gerhard Schröder, der 31.Aug.2004 -zurzeit mit Putin + dem französischen Präsidenten Jacques Chirac in Sotschi weilt, begrüßte Putins Ankündigung.

Dies schaffe mehr Transparenz auf den Erdölmärkten und wirke den Ölpreis-Spekulationen entgegen.URL: https://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/0,1518,315970,00.html

Protesters in oversize Bush [BGW968] masks + wild costumes harassed convention-goers as they left their hotels.

"Corporate orgy in Iraq (news - web sites)," they chanted, a reference to accusations that firms friendly to the White House are making money on reconstruction contracts there.

Outside the Plaza Hotel, protesters in pink wigs stood at the door with plastic cups of champagne, toasting "to tax cuts and the rich" as the conventioneers walked out.

Police formed lines between the protesters, some of whom wore giant papier-mache masks of Bush [BGW968], Vice President Dick Cheney (news - web sites) + National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice (news - web sites).

The group that organized Sunday's enormous demonstration, United for Peace and Justice, found its headquarters a target of protest on Monday — by pro-Bush [BGW968] demonstrators from a group called ProtestWarrior.

About 15 members, chanting "Four more years!" + "U SA ! U SA !", targeted the anti-Bush [BGW968] group.

30.Aug.2004 Juan Cole: FBI Furious at Leak : It appears to be the case that someone in the Pentagon got wind that Larry Franklin had been flipped + was terrified that the investigation might go on up the ladder at the Pentagon, in AIPAC, and with the Israelis. So they leaked news of the investigation to make sure that everybody clammed up and shredded everything.
30.Aug.2004 A few weeks from now, fear and not fortitude will dominate the Republican National Convention in New York. President Bush [BGW968] has already set the tone when only days after 9/11, he went to New York + proclaimed, "those who aren't with us are against us." Until he ordered those forces to attack Afghanistan on Oct. 7, it wasn't clear what he would do to avenge the 3,000 people who lost their lives. 
One reason for the Oct. 7 attack could have been that the reclusive Taliban had just signed accords with China for developmental projects, as reported by John Pomfret in the Washington Post. Bush [BGW968] had only been in office for less than nine months and was inclined toward the "China threat." 
According to neo-con theory, China should have disintegrated some time in the 1990s, following the Soviet Union. But already on 9/11 it was clear to the Washington think-tank analysts that China was getting stronger and stronger. That meant China could sooner or later catch up with and or even surpass America. 
Fear once again triumphed over faith. And the USA empire once again expanded outward as if that would abate the fears that were growing among Americans
As to democracies, the future is not bright.  URL:
