ANTI-WAR MPs GATHER AFTER TRAUMATIC WEEK FOR AFGHAN WAR


STOP THE WAR COALITION
http://stopwar.org.uk

The Stop the War/CND public meeting in parliament on Monday 28 June has added
significance following a trumatic week for the political and military leaders
waging war in Afghanistan.

Many MPs will attend the meeting, including a number who were previously
supporters of the war. Among the MPs speaking are Caroline Lucas, Jeremy
Corbyn, Paul Flynn, John Trickett, Eric Joyce and Yasmin Qureshi.

June has been the worst month for Nato casualties since the war began in 2001.
Ten British soldiers have been killed in the last nine days and 66 have died so
far in 2010, which is more than double the 32 in the same period last year.

General McChrystal's sacking, for making indiscreet remarks about President
Obama and others, disguises the real reason for his removal -- his latest
report which told the truth about the war: Nato is losing and the Afghan
resistance is "resilient and growing".

David Cameron says he wants the troops home within five years, without giving
any convincing justification for them being there another five minutes.
Hundreds of soldiers will lose their lives and thousands will be maimed while
Cameron thrashes around looking for an "exit stategy" to save the face of
warmongers who can't abide admitting defeat.

And meanwhile, following a budget that will decimate public service, not a
penny will be cut from the £5-6 billion the war in Afghanistan is costing
every year, or from the tens of billions which are earmarked for the renewal of
the Trident nuclear missile system.

At the Stop the War/CND meeting on 28 June, anti-war MPs will be joined by
other speakers, including a representative from Military Families Against the
War, to discuss why the war is wrong, why Trident should be scrapped and why
the troops should come home now. This is a public meeting open to all.

CUT THE WAR, SCRAP TRIDENT, BRING THE TROOPS HOME
PUBLIC MEETING IN PARLIAMENT
MONDAY 28 JUNE 6.30PM
Speakers include: Caroline Lucas MP, Jeremy Corbyn MP, Paul Flynn MP, John
Trickett MP, Eric Joyce MP, Yasmin Qureshi MP, (other MPs to be announced),
member of Military Families Against the War.
PORTCULLIS HOUSE, BRIDGE STREET
LONDON SW1A 2LW ALL WELCOME

General McChrystal's sacking, for making indiscreet remarks about President
Obama and others, disguises the real reason for his removal -- his latest report which told the truth about the war: Nato is losing and the Afghan resistance is "resilient and growing".

That's very interesting, and the fact that "the Afghan resistance is "resilient and growing"" has been reported by others earlier this year. Perhaps The Real News Network had a video report about this posted at Youtube. It'd definitely be a topic TRNN would report about anyway.

But I wonder where stopwar.org.uk learned of him having said this in his latest report and if any U.S. news media, corporate or alternative, have reported about this part of his report. Is his report or a copy of it available online; I wonder.

Otoh, I don't understand how these few words in his report would be the reason for replacing him; unless it's because what he said could be learned by the public and the ruling elites decided that this was not acceptable; because, in their world, we're to be kept ignorant of the U.S. failing in their wars for empire paid for with the money they steal from U.S. tax payers. If that's how or why the replacement happened, then they evidently and stupidly think that they can significantly continue to deceive us.

That would not be surprising, for they're psychopaths, insane, delusional, ... anyway. We can't expect great intelligence from such people. Their "games" always will become exposed and this causes backfiring. The exposure is not always learned widely enough, but exposure nevertheless eventually happens and then it's just a question of spreading this information.

The only thing that permits them to continue is not deception; instead, it's power. They control the govt, because the majority of pols and too many military commanders, senior officers, are corrupt, treasonous, and so on. They have the military and so-called law enforcement at their service. And not only do they wage military warfare, they also wage economic warfare; and the two are inter-related.

"BOOK LAUNCH: The Global Economic Crisis: The Great Depression of the XXI Century
Highlights of this Important Collection with Selected Excerpts"

by Michel Chossudovsky and Andrew Gavin Marshall, June 25th and 30th, 2010

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=19321

Contributors to this book that's evidently very good judging based only on the highlights from it are, "Ellen Brown, Tom Burghardt, Michel Chossudovsky, Richard C. Cook, Shamus Cooke, John Bellamy Foster, Michael Hudson, Tanya Cariina Hsu, Fred Magdoff, Andrew Gavin Marshall, James Petras, Peter Phillips, Peter Dale Scott, Bill Van Auken, Claudia von Werlhof and Mike Whitney".

The highlights, alone, make for interesting reading, and I wish that I could afford the book.

Conclusion:

The power elites think they can continue to fool most of us. I hope that they've become increasingly [wrong] about this.

David Cameron says he wants the troops home within five years, without giving any convincing justification for them being there another five minutes.

Hundreds of soldiers will lose their lives and thousands will be maimed while Cameron thrashes around looking for an "exit stategy" to save the face of warmongers who can't abide admitting defeat.

There's a word some people use for people of his ilk and it's not a nice word, but it's spelled s c u m. I didn't say it; only having said how it's spelled! Don't blame me if people say fitting things like this about people like him. Ooops, did I say fitting? It certainly looks like I did. I wonder why. :)
