Catapulting the Propaganda
The President, Cindy Sheehan, and How Words Die
By Tom Engelhardt

"See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda." -- George Bush, "President Participates in Social Security Conversation in New York," May 24, 2005.

Question - Mr. President, what is your line of work?

And isn't it true that you have to -uh- "got to keep repeating things over and over again"
not so that the truth wil sink in but that you'll remember the lie?

C- on grammer

Back in the 1970's the Administration hired on a verfied Satanist to push and "educate" the Army with a system that used reinforcement of propaganda to influence and conduce the public to follow the "words". The National Enquirer reported this. This article can be found in William Milton Cooper's book, Behold a Pale Horse. Check it out. Throw out the Republicans. They are a cancer.

It's all too obvious that the president is just playing a grown-up and real game of cowboys and indians. He can't understand why we don't want to play, anymore.

Winning the War on Terror
by Mike BohlingPresident Bush’s War on Global Terrorism.

I would like you all to think about that one single sentence as you read this article. If you disagree about placing the historic reference to this war in Mr. Bush’s lap, try this one.

America’s War on Global Terrorism.

How does that sound? America’s War on Global Terrorism. That has a much better ring to it. It kind of puts us all into bed together, as one nation. One people united in defeating the scourge of worldwide terrorism. Now that we find ourselves engaged in this war, let’s give a little thought as to how it might end, and how to go about being on the winning side of things when it’s all said and done. Will there be one final, epic battle against the terrorists in which America is victorious? A Waterloo, or Custer’s Last Stand type of moment with one clear winner? Maybe a Hiroshima ending in which the terrorists unconditionally surrender? Given nature of terrorism, these scenarios seem very unlikely. I doubt that the multitude of terrorists factions around the world will be willing to forget their differences, get together and decide join forces to battle the U.S. in open warfare, although it would be extremely convenient for us if they would. If they would just pick a time and a place for a showdown, then we could get this thing settled once and for all.

Terrorists, by definition, fight an entirely different type of war. Acts of terrorism are not perpetrated by soldiers, they are carried out by individuals, or groups of individuals, who have no other recourse but to lash out at the nations that they perceive as their oppressors with whatever tools they have available. They strap bombs on their backs, walk into areas crowded with people, and strike a blow for the cause. Car bombs, snipers, hijacked airplanes, it makes no difference how the terrorist act is accomplished, as long as it has the desired effect. There are no rules of warfare, no governments to be held accountable, and no moral standards to be upheld.


Considering the nature of terrorism, there can be no winning the war against it. It is a different senario compared to past wars waged by the US, where we were against a structured enemy whose motives were clear. We are now fighting a nebulous force, that is fighting for an ideology we don't fully grasp. Our own motives are at best, vague or unclear, being primarily for revenge of what occured on 9/11, dispite the flag waving rhetoric of "Freedom on the March." Our efforts can be best discribed as lashing out blindly against an enemy who is choosing the rules of conflict. How will it end? Following Bush's leadership and his "staying the course" the war will end when Arlington is filled to capacity and no one is available fight the war. No amount of flag waving or name changing can change or give legitimacy to "Bush's War on Global terrorism"
