What can we make of this convoluted and contradictory piece? The headline says "this weekend" which would mean February 15-16.  Then in the body of the article we read:

"Mr. Bush did not mention Friday as a turning point. Ms. Rice said that he had set no deadline for action by the Security Council, but that in his recent phrase, "weeks not months really means weeks not months."

There is a 'rumor' floating around that the war is going to start on February 15th - as a 'valentine present' to the Iraqi people.  In one piece that we haven't posted in this site (because it came from the Rumor Mill and it's "source" is a deep throat in Iraq) postulated that the war hawks could shoot a missile into our American troops, blame it on Sadam, and let the games begin. We'll see.

Remember to read this controlled media stuff with an open mind - considering that much of what we read is to 'shape public opinion' and generate fear and anxiety.  Stay close with God, in peace and love.

p.s. Have you noticed how the president is being referred to as "Mr. Bush". It seems odd, and different. David Icke has a book on 9-11 in which he said that he wouldn't be surprised at all if there was an assassination of the president because his code name in Skull and Bones was 'temporary'.

U.S. Demands Iraq Show Cooperation by This Weekend


     WASHINGTON, Feb. 9 Secretary of State Colin L. Powell warned today that if Saddam Hussein was still not cooperating with United Nations inspectors at the end of this week, President Bush would press immediately for consideration of a Security Council resolution authorizing possible use of force against Iraq.

     Mr. Powell's comments laid out what appeared to be an accelerating timetable in the confrontation with Iraq, even as France, Germany and other members of the Security Council continued to call for more time before considering the use of force.

     Mr. Bush and his national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice, also said time was running short, as the administration seemed to be setting in motion a swift showdown with France and Germany, traditionally two of the United States' closest allies. Russia's president, Vladimir V. Putin, said today that Moscow, too, was aligning itself with Paris and Bonn. He spoke after talks with Chancellor Gerhard Schröder of Germany.

     American officials say the next important day in the quickening pace of events on Iraq is this Friday, when Hans Blix and Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei, the chief United Nations weapons inspectors, are to deliver an updated report on whether Iraq is cooperating with the inspections ordered by the Council in November.

     In Baghdad, Mr. Blix and Dr. ElBaradei said today that they had made some progress in getting Iraq to cooperate on showing weapons sites but that they had no breakthrough to report.

     American officials say they will be satisfied only with a complete agreement by Iraq to reveal all its chemical, biological and nuclear weapons programs and to disarm.

     If Mr. Blix and Dr. ElBaradei report next Friday that Mr. Hussein is still not cooperating, "then the Security Council will have to sit in session immediately and determine what should happen next," Mr. Powell said on NBC News program "Meet the Press." The Security Council, he added, would then have to "start considering a resolution that says Iraq is in material breach and it is time for serious consequences to follow." The phrase "serious consequences" is used by American officials to refer to military force.

     Mr. Powell dismissed reports that France and Germany, and perhaps Russia, would recommend deploying United Nations peacekeepers in Iraq along with inspectors, saying that would be pointless. The reports, first raised in the German newsmagazine Der Spiegel, were played down by French and German officials as well, although they said discussions were under way to seek some alternative to quick military action.

     Mr. Bush also increased pressure on the United Nations today to act on Iraq. Speaking to Republican members of Congress at a retreat in West Virginia, Mr. Bush said the American goal "over the next short period of time" would be to work with "friends and allies and the United Nations to bring that body along."

     Mr. Bush did not mention Friday as a turning point. Ms. Rice said that he had set no deadline for action by the Security Council, but that in his recent phrase, "weeks not months really means weeks not months."

     But while the main pressure exerted today was on the United Nations, Mr. Powell and others in the administration were also seeking to put pressure on France and Germany over a growing dispute within NATO on Iraq. The dispute centers on a refusal by France, Germany and Belgium to agree to Turkey's request for military equipment to prepare for a possible war.

     Echoing Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld's comments in Germany over the weekend, Mr. Powell said on "Fox News Sunday" that it was "inexcusable" for France, Germany and Belgium to block the request, coming as it did from a fellow NATO member.

    The NATO Charter requires the alliance to come to the defense of any member attacked, as Turkey fears it will be in the event of a war.

     The NATO alliance is to decide the issue on Monday, but there was no sign today that France, Germany and Belgium were wavering. The three nations say that without a Security Council resolution authorizing war, it is premature to start supplying Turkey with the equipment requested, including Patriot missiles and Awacs surveillance aircraft.

     "For three NATO nations to say, with respect to a fourth NATO nation, `We won't even consider that at this time because of a dispute, really, we're having within the United Nations Security Council about what follows next,' I think is inexcusable on the part of those countries," Mr. Powell said.

    The French and German position is said to be especially infuriating at the Pentagon, where planners say the Patriot missiles and other equipment need to start moving right now in order to reach Turkey on time. Mr. Rumsfeld and Deputy Defense Secretary Paul D. Wolfowitz have spent considerable effort in the last several months to line up Turkish help for a war with Iraq, and their efforts have borne fruit recently.

     But French and German diplomats say that Turkey does not need the equipment now, and that the United States is pressing for it now only to give the shaky government led by Prime Minister Abdullah Gul in Turkey a show of political support that he can cite in his efforts to supply troops for an Iraq war.

     American officials have tried to play down their anger over the NATO dispute, in part out of a desire not to aggravate tensions. But one American official called it a problem that could affect the unity of the entire Atlantic alliance forged after World War II.

     Some say the relationship between the United States on one hand and France and Germany on the other is becoming increasingly poisonous. President Jacques Chirac of France was described by knowledgeable officials as furious over American efforts to gather support from other European nations for a war with Iraq.

     "Chirac is not amused that the United States seems to be trying to isolate him and suggest that France is not the real leader of Europe," a European diplomat said.

     The diplomat was referring to recently successful efforts to line up eight other nations in Europe to sign a declaration favoring disarmament of Iraq, which was interpreted as a rebuff to France. French officials complained that France had not been asked to sign the declaration, which they noted did not actually call for a war and therefore might have been acceptable to Mr. Chirac.

    A second letter was released by 10 other European nations, mostly from Eastern Europe. Mr. Powell said today that those letters of support indicated that many Europeans supported the United States' view, even if France and Germany did not.

     There was some confusion, meanwhile, over whether there would be a French and German counterproposal this coming week — possibly backed by Russia — to avoid a confrontation with Iraq by instead demanding that Mr. Blix and Dr. ElBaradei be given more inspectors and be backed by possible use of United Nations troops while they do their inspections.

     France and Germany denied a report in Der Spiegel that they were talking secretly about such a proposal. Mr. Powell said he had not seen it, but that if it was an offshoot of a similar proposal by France last week for more inspectors, and more time for them to do their work, the idea was a nonstarter.

     "I do not know what that accomplishes," Mr. Powell said on the ABC News program "This Week," referring to the proposal to add inspectors. "The issue is not more inspectors or more robust inspections. The issue is: Will Iraq comply? Will it give up its weapons of mass destruction?"

     He said more inspectors would accomplish nothing without a change of approach by Mr. Hussein. Similarly, adding United Nations troops would also not help, he said.

     "What are these blue-helmeted U.N. forces going to do?" he asked. "Shoot their way into Iraqi compounds?"

      He said Iraq had to "come clean" and not have inspectors "play detectives or Inspector Clouseau running all around Iraq looking for this material." He was referring not to United Nations inspectors but to the fictional, bumbling inspector in a series of "Pink Panther" films starring Peter Sellers. [end]

War with Iraq - Again?
Introduction and Overview. Reading this first will put the other items in this section into perspective. —Jackie

Hussein Did NOT Gas the Kurds!
New York Times: "The United States Defense Intelligence Agency investigated and produced a classified report, which it circulated within the intelligence community on a need-to-know basis. That study asserted that it was Iranian gas that killed the Kurds, not Iraqi gas."

Zionist Campaign for War with Iraq
In Revisionist Perspective by Paul Grubach
"Why should the U.S. go to war to serve Israeli-Zionist interests? Why should mostly non-Jewish White, Black, and Hispanic Americans — who make up the vast majority of the U.S. armed forces — have to risk their lives for the Jewish state of Israel?"

America's Ultra-Secret Weapon - "dial-a-hurt"
HPMs are man-made lightning bolts crammed into cruise missiles. The Directed Energy Directorate at Kirtland has been studying how to deliver varying but predictable electrical pulses to inflict increasing levels of harm: to deny, degrade, damage or destroy, to use the Pentagon's parlance. HPM engineers call it "dial-a-hurt."

The Mother of All Wars - SHOCK and AWE
"Ullman is ready to use every kind of weapon to create shock and awe. He once said it might be a good idea to use electromagnetic waves that attack peoples' neurological systems, "to control the will and perception of adversaries, by applying a regime of shock and awe. It is about effecting behavior."

Pentagon Eyes Mass Graves (for U.S. Soldiers)
Denver Post: "The bodies of U.S. soldiers killed by chemical or biological weapons in Iraq or future wars may be bulldozed into mass graves and burned to save the lives of surviving troops, under an option being considered by the Pentagon."

View from Baghdad
This following article is the reality that 99% of the world sees about the Iraq situation and the U.S. role. This war is not over oil. It's about ownership and control of Earth's resources. . . this proven technology could provide an ABUNDANCE of cheap, clean energy worldwide, virtually overnight, if it was not ruthlessly suppressed with inventors bankrupted if not murdered.

War - No Matter What!
Dr Richard Perle stunned MPs by insisting a "clean bill of health" from UN chief weapons inspector Hans Blix would not halt America's war machine. Evidence from ONE witness on Saddam Hussein's weapons programme will be enough to trigger a fresh military onslaught, he told an all-party meeting on global security.

Saddam's Bodyguard Warns of Secret Weapons
A source close to Mr. Sharon said, "Sharon intends to shatter the growing anti-war movement. He plans to call all those European leaders who are wavering . . ." Is this the ONE witness Richard Perle needed to trigger a fresh military onslaught?

Seeds of Destruction
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.

Turkish Parliament Refuses to Accept G.I.'s in Blow to Bush
ANKARA, Turkey, March 1 - The Turkish Parliament today dealt a major setback to the Bush administration's plans for a northern front against Iraq, narrowly rejecting a measure that would have allowed thousands of American combat troops to use the country as a base for an attack.

Bush and 2 Allies Seem Set for War to Depose Hussein

BUSH: "Saddam Hussein can leave the country if he's interested in peace. You see, the decision is his to make, and it's been his to make all along on whether or not there's the use of military."

Bush Planned Iraq Regime Change Before Becoming President
Sunday Herald, United Kingdom, September 15, 2002
"A secret blueprint for US global domination reveals that President Bush and his cabinet were planning a premeditated attack on Iraq to secure 'regime change' even before he took power in January 2001...'This is a blueprint for US world domination -- a new world order of their making. These are the thought processes of fantasist Americans who want to control the world. I am appalled that a British Labour Prime Minister should have got into bed with a crew which has this moral standing.'"

Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategy, Forces, and Resources for a New Century
Click here to download Adobe Acrobat ReaderWritten in September 2000, before George W. Bush was President, and prior to September 11th, this document is the report the Sunday Herald (U.K.) called, "A blueprint for US global domination." Among other things, the report establishes missions for U.S. military forces to:

  • "defend the American homeland

  • "fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous theatre wars

  • "perform the 'constabulary' duties associated with shaping the security environment in critical regions

  • "transform U.S. forces to exploit the 'revolution in military affairs'"

U.S. Awards Deals for Post-War Iraq
"A USAid spokeswoman said that the companies were chosen because of their proven ability, and that it was a policy to use US companies for projects funded by the American taxpayer." U.S. soldiers will bomb the Iraqis to hell, then the "American taxpayer" will pay, and pay, and pay to rebuild what they destroyed. Except, you can't rebuild or re-animate dead babies and men and women, not even one, nor the half-million Iraqis expected to be murdered. Oh, yes. . . the sanitized war-term for murder now is "collateral damage."

Just Another Staged Baghdad Rally?
They told us that the Iraqis were dancing in the streets, celebrating at the thought of being "liberated." Could it be they lied to us again?

Pick Your Price: Your Blood or Your Soul
By John Kaminski
Demonic demagogues like Joseph Farah, Michael Savage and Rush Limbaugh all have recently recommended killing large numbers of innocent Iraqis "to teach them a lesson." . . . it's not cool to mess with Uncle Sam and mutilate his hired killers, the highly paid mercenaries he hired to assassinate Iraqi intellectuals. . .
