“We're Taking Down Seven Countries in Five Years”

Ok, so you thought that last post was scary enough.

Check this out

Last October in a
speach Gen. Wesley Clark recounted his conversation with a general at the Pentagon in November 2001.

I said, "Are we still going to invade Iraq?" "Yes, Sir," he said, "but it's worse than that." I said, "How do you mean?" He held up this piece of paper. He said, "I just got this memo today or yesterday from the office of the Secretary of Defense upstairs. It's a, it's a five-year plan. We're going to take down seven countries in five years. We're going to start with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, then Libya, Somalia, Sudan, we're going to come back and get Iran in five years. I said, "Is that classified, that paper?" He said, "Yes Sir." I said, "Well, don't show it to me, because I want to be able to talk about it."

This was of course just two months after 9-11.

Where is this all going to end? Israeli nuclear strikes on Iran, a US/Iran 'Gulf of Tonkin' type incident?

US complicity with Saddam: [VIDEO]

Morning everyone,

Can I very very strongly recommend that you watch this couple of short videos here

Its a documentary that Barry Lando, along with French journalist Michel Despratx, produced for Canal + in France, and has been broadcast in much of the world, but never in the United States. It details Western--and particularly U.S.-- complicity with the crimes of Saddam Hussein--such as his use of chemical weapons first against Iranian troops, then against his own Iraqi Kurds. Back then, of course, the U.S. was backing Saddam, their de facto ally, against Khomeini.

Isn't it convenient that he can now never give evidence at a trial?

Watch it, share it.

Sydney Sights

Hi everyone, sorry I haven't posted anything in a while, its all been rather busy and I've been working and partying my arse off. Had a lot on my mind too, so its been hard to make the time to finish this. That said, I'm currently importing a brand list of about 3000 different names into a design server in the US, so this could take a while (if it doesn't entirely crash and lose the last 2 hours work.)

Anyway, the weekend before last I took a nice long walk through the eastern suburbs of Sydney, just for a wander to see what there was to see. As you can see, it really is all rather pretty, quite and very laid back. I also came across some pretty cool graffiti and street art, which I'm always fond on. Anyway, enjoy!

This is the truth of it

If it weren't so true, it would be funny.

Much festive fun

Hello! Well yes, I did survive the Christmas and New years Eve period, but damn, Sydney sure does like to party and party hard over the holiday period. I am still feeling distinctly knackered from what turned out to be basically, with a few days off here and there, one big long 10 day party!This involved repeat offending in King's Cross's many many excellent clubs, and combined with beautiful weather and a fantastic sunny day down at the fish market, eating amazing fresh fish and sea food and cold crisp austrlian white wine, and you've got a pretty awesome few days!
The fireworks on NYE were particularly amazing, given that it was the 75th anniversary of the Harbor Bridge, and the show was really something - these bad (drunken) pictures can't really do it justice, but it great fun.This was followed by a fantastic all day club event in the Greenwood Hotel on New Years Day - raving it up in the sunshine and then the rain, white sunglasses and bright glow sticks all round! This was, to top it all off, then followed by a stint again in Dragon Fly until 6am - and yes, I did go to work the next day!
All in all, a really awesome NYE!
