Army to recall former
Has the U.S. Government/military claimed ownership
of retired and discharged soldiers? Is there a hook in some clause of the
"contract" they sign when they enter the military that they have a life-long
obligation to serve? If I were a retired or discharged military veteran I'd
be running for cover right about now. They're running out of cannon fodder,
folks. Many other news items point to the same problem.
This was no obscure news announcement in a small-town
newspaper. It was blatantly proclaimed by the Communist News Network (CNN).
Not having heard the announcement personally I can imagine the announcer
-- maybe the so-slick Aaron Brown -- nonchalantly breaking the news, followed
by the baseball scores. And the deaf and blinded (by
Control) masses pay more attention to the scores. In the Associated Press
article below we read that
"The Army is preparing to notify about 5,600 retired
and discharged soldiers who are not members of the National Guard
or Reserve that they will be involuntarily recalled to active duty
for possible service in Iraq or Afghanistan. . . "
. . . or Syria, or Iran, or wherever in hell the
controllers of the U.S. Government, Inc./U.S. Military decide to send them!
Do bear in mind that this so-called "War" on Iraq
was never declared as war by Congress. The U.S. Constitution, in Article
1, Section 8, Clause 11 states that:
"The Congress shall have the Power: To declare
War. . .
Because most Americans have not read the Constitution;
because schools and colleges have firmly implanted the 'belief' in the minds
of our children; because the
media repeats and repeats the statement that "the President is Commander
in Chief of the military", the masses today accept the totalitarian concept
that ONE individual -- the President of the U.S. -- has the power to declare
war, sending U.S. Soldiers around the world
to "kill and die, in defense
of the world order".
In fact, the Constitution, in Article II, Section
2, Clause 1, states that:
"The President shall be Commander in Chief of
the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several
States, when called into the actual Service of the United States;. . .
". . . called into the actual service of the United
States. That would be a declaration of war by the U.S. Congress. Excerpting
from the book,
"Prior to WWII - before the
U.S. joined the United Nations Organization - it was clearly understood by
Americans and foreign governments alike that only the U.S. Congress could
declare war. This understanding was expressed in a speech by British Prime
Minister Winston Churchill on December 8, 1941, as Britain was declaring
war on Japan:
'The President told me that he would
this morning send a message to Congress, which of course as you all know
is the instrument, the constitutional instrument, by which alone a United
States declaration of war can be made. . . ' Voices of
"In view of the extra-constitutional
power assumed by U.S. presidents since World War II - all subsequent wars
having been executed by presidential executive orders or 'directives' - one
might reasonably conclude that the 'constitutional instrument' had been duly
amended. In the case of war-making power that conclusion would be incorrect.
So then, what happened? In
No. 10 we read:
'In the near future we shall establish the
responsibility of presidents.
'Independently of this we shall
invest the president with the right of declaring a state of war.'
'We shall justify this last right on the ground
that the president as chief of the whole army of the country must have it
at his disposal, in case of need for the defense of the new republican
constitution. . . '; Protocol No. 10
"In two separate conversations -
with Brian Merchant in 1994 and Bill Leary in 1996 - with the National Security
Council, we were informed that: presidential executive orders are 'not law';
presidential executive orders do not 'become' law; and 'there is no legal
or criminal penalty for failure to obey an executive order'.
"Brian Merchant claimed that the
president controls the military because he is 'Commander and Chief of the
Army and Navy'. In response to the reminder that under the Constitution the
president does not become Commander and Chief of the Army and
Navy until 'called into the service of the United States' by a Congressional
declaration of war, Merchant casually remarked:
'However, under International Law, PEACEKEEPING
IS NOT DEFINED AS WAR'."
And so it is, as stated in George Orwell's book,
1984, "War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is
Intelligence." Unfortunately we are living

THE STRUGGLE FOR
Army to recall former military
Tuesday, June 29, 2004 Posted: 12:43 PM EDT (1643
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Army is preparing to notify
about 5,600 retired and discharged soldiers who are not members of the National
Guard or Reserve that they will be involuntarily recalled to active duty
for possible service in Iraq or Afghanistan, Army officials said
It marks the first time the Army has called on
the Individual Ready Reserve, as this category of reservists is known, in
substantial numbers since the 1991 Gulf War.
The move reflects the continued shortage of troops
available to Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld to fight the ongoing war
on terrorism as well as Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Lt. Gen. Frank Hagenbeck, the Army's deputy chief
of staff for personnel, said earlier this month of the Army's troop strength,
"We are stretched but we have what we need."
Pentagon officials have echoed that statement
explaining that while the military is reaching deep into its resources, war
planners have long had contingency plans such as this for when troops are
Several hundred members of the ready reserve have
volunteered for active-duty service since the September 11, 2001, terrorist
Those who are part of the involuntary call up
are likely to be assigned to National Guard or Reserve units that have been
mobilized for duty in Iraq or Afghanistan, according to Army officials. An
announcement is planned for Wednesday.
Members of Congress were being notified of the
decision Tuesday, the officials said.
Unlike members of the National Guard and Reserve,
the individual reservists do not perform regularly scheduled
Any former enlisted soldier who did not serve
at least eight years on active duty is in the Individual Ready Reserve pool,
as are all officers who have not resigned their commission.
The Army has been reviewing its list of 118,000
eligible individual reservists for several weeks in search of qualified people
in certain high-priority skill areas like civil affairs.

What keeps Bush from planting evidence of WMD in Iraq?
Think about it. Bush is willing to lie, cheat and steal in order to forward
his agenda to destroy Iraq. To his disappointment, inspectors have found
NOTHING thus far except some crated-up, 20 year-old warheads. Hardly evidence
of an active program for WMD.

he had set no deadline for action by the Security Council." Much of what
we read in the controlled media is designed to 'shape public opinion' and
generate fear and anxiety. Stay close with God in peace and love.
