In the last 10 years British Imperialism has been unsuccessfully seeking to bring its total army strength up to 102,000 regular personnel, recruiting those aged between 16 and 26 (Britain is the only EU state that recruits 16-year old child soldiers, with an astounding one third of the recruits being under 18). Merely to maintain its current level of troops, the army must recruit some 20,000 new soldiers each year to replace those that are leaving.
The retention rate would be even worse if soldiers were not expected to sell themselves for years. New recruits may opt out in the first three months, but the option for them to leave is then closed for four years.
Because of the anti-Iraq war movement started in 2004 and growing, it
is discouraging young people to have a "career" in the armed forces.
But because of the current economic recession and unemployment, it
seems that the recruitment is growing – especially in poor areas.
Statement by the Czech Slav Committee
There is being launched media attacks by very influential Hungarian organizations against the Slovak Republic (of former CSSR) demanding that the borders of Hungary should be changed to include its former Hungarian Empire territory in Southern and Eastern part of Slovakia.
This is nothing but revanchism to abolish the International Conference decision taken in 1920, known as the Versailles Treaty, which set the Czechoslovak-Hungarian borders as agreed upon by all signatories in the League of Nations. Hungary has decided to not recognize this unanimous decision made at the end of the First World War.
Nationalistic extremism is growing in Hungary and demanding that the European Union supports their claim to former occupied territory of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
It is hoped that the European Union has second thoughts about this provocative demand by Hungary.
The above statement was sent to us by Professor Mirko Svoboda and
issued by the Czech Slav Committee and sent to all Slavic countries and
showing support to the Slovak People.
This Campaign was founded in March of 2005 to oppose the threat of a US attack on Iran. Since that time, "Stop War on Iran Campaign" activists held teach-ins, forums, and protests across the United States. Last year there were large protests held in more than 100 cities in the US as well as across the Globe -from India to Canada.
Wall Street and the oil monopolies want to control Iran's vast natural resources and utilize many billions at their disposal to wage their disinformation campaigns all over the world.
The protests that are lately being organized in Iran by Western Imperialism and supported by foundations like "George Soros Foundation for Democracy" are being supported by a majority of the Iranian people.
The tragedy is that China is playing a very negative of not even
issuing any condemnation of the US policy. Doesn't the Russian regime
see the threat to its own security?
By World Council of Churches – News Release – August 26, 2009
The World Council of Churches (WCC) called on the Israeli Government to freeze and begin to dismantle all of the settlements in occupied Palestinian territories. It urged non-violence and peace negotiations, and reiterated the absolute need for an international boycott of products and services from these Israel settlements.
WCC looked at over 200 hundred illegal Israel settlements on the occupied Palestinian lands with over 450,000 Jewish settlers occupying these settlements and it said that they were all "illegal, unjust, incompatible with peace and antithetical to the legitimate interests of the State of Israel."
The WCC stated also that its policy of expansion and annexation dismays
all of humanity. The WCC asked all churches and all other religious
institutions all over the world to give moral and practical support to
the Palestinian people.
An alert President D. Roosevelt shut them down, but stopped short of retaliatory measures against the plotters.
A key element in the plot was Smedley Butler, a retired prominent US General, who was to have recruited a private army of 500,000 men from the unemployed veterans and he then blew the whistle when he learned more of what the plot entailed.
This plot was heavily funded, well developed and had very strong links with fascist forces in Europe. Several US newspapers, such as the "New York Times" reported on it and thus a special investigative committee was set up by FDR to conduct an investigation. The records of this committee were scrubbed and sealed away in the US National Archives, where they have only now been released.
The US Congressional Committee kept most of these names under wraps and no criminal charges or action was ever taken against them. But a few names leaked out, and one is Preston Bush, the grandfather of former US President George Bush.
Prescott Bush – was deep into the business of the Hamburg-American Lines, and had very tight relations with the new government that came to power later on, under Chancellor Adolph Hitler. It was to be that Prescott Bush was to be the main liaison for the US group with the new Nazi Government of Germany.
The role of this US most powerful dynastic family in the US history in this whole affair is shocking.
This US sponsored private army of assassins is the USA's Blackwater Corporation in April of 2002 was paid over $5 Millions to deploy a small 20-member team of men inside Afghanistan during the early stages of US invasion. This was the CIA Blackwater assassin team's first job, and thus began this undercover-underworld assassination killers work and paid for by the US tax dollars that now runs into billions of dollars in order to support this US version of "Nazi SS".
In order for the US government to show to the world that their "hands are clean", the CIA outsourced all these jobs and assassinations to a private corporation and if anything went wrong – the US President can say: 'We are not responsible, it's the private contractor that we hired!" This outright lie is in spite of the facts that the CIA – an arm of the US Government gave over many years millions upon millions of US Dollars to Blackwater for training, wages and weaponry.The head of Blackwater, Prince, a former CIA operator, was so trusted by former VP Dick Cheney that even the US Congress did not know as to what these assassin were doing! Blackwater Corporation is located in North Carolina.
Blackwater team leader, when speaking to former President Bush in 2002, according to J. Cofer Black who was running the CIA-Blackwater operations, told President Bush: "When we capture and get rid of these Afghan resistance leaders, in Afghanistan, they will have flies walking across their eyeballs." President reportedly said: "Let's got That's war! That's what we're here to win!"
Under pressure from many quarters, including the US Democratic Senate, there is a court case for many years now against Blackwater Corporation, with their top lawyers being paid by the US tax dollars, and CIA inspired legal wrangling that will go on for many years.
But Blackwater continues to do robust business with the US Government,
particularly in Afghanistan. The Democrat Hillary Clinton is asking
President Obama to cancel all the contracts and not to award any future
contracts. But, everything is quiet in the CIA and in the White House!
The secret overseas CIA "black sites" where it conducted the interrogations are empty now, if not already dismantled. They were never allowed to be examined by the US Congressional Committee nor allowed to be inspected by the International Red Cross. The black sites not only imprisoned men but reduced them to near hopeless state of body and mind.
The prisoners arrival at the black torture site, – all arrivals had to wear diapers. After being shaved, stripped naked, photographed, they were, examined by the CIA's medical staff as to how long they would be able to endure torture and psychological interrogation. If they did not cooperate or confess, they were deprived of food, clothes and sleep.
Then they would be forced to stand still with their back to the wall and a towel tied around the neck to "prevent" whiplash. He is then thrown against the wall once and if there is no confession he can be thrown violently against the wall 20-30 times. After that the prisoner would be forced to kneel on his knees for hours on end in order to avoid being thrown against the wall again and again.
A CIA memo of December 30, 2004 came to light now which outlines all other torture methods that are allowed to be used."
The above was published in the Los Angeles Times, August 31, 2009
According to the US Physicians for Human Rights, the doctors in the
employ of the CIA have committed torture, unlawful medical
experimentation, studying effective torture techniques, aiding the CIA
with new and more effective methods of torture, even using such
experiments that the German Nazi doctors utilized before and after
WWII. These methods were prohibited at the Nuremberg Trial in 1947.
From The Guardian, GB, September 2, 2009
Hey Mr. Obama!
Surely you are aware of what even the capitalist press is writing about these Nazi methods that are used by the CIA! Or is it that the powers that be in Washington will not allow you to even comment on these CIA fascist atrocities?
Next time you go to church with your bible to pray, think about these crimes that you allow to continue!
September 1, 2009 marked the 70th Anniversary of the Nazi invasion of Poland and the Soviet-German Non Aggression Pact and this unleashed historical falsification, using the Nazi word-for-word propaganda.
The present young generation unfortunately is not versed in historical facts that are readily available, and that history over and over again has refuted these falsifications!
There were held memorials as in Poland, which blamed Hitler and Stalin
for the invasion of Poland and of course the murder of Polish Officers.
The Polish officers were killed by German SS troops as was admitted in
the Diaries of Goebbels as well as brought up at the Nuremberg Trials.
Why did Poland refuse to sign a non-aggression pact with the USSR, but
in 1934 it signed it with Nazi Germany?
