By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor

Why would a general want to leave a command, especially one as challenging as Afghanistan?  Think of it, no more meetings with President Karzai.  Picture yourself, sitting in Kabul.  Still in Kabul, looking south at failure.  Long ago, when Paul Wolfowitz and Karl Rove, called “Dog Boy and Turd Blossom” by President Bush,  were selecting the worst possible weaklings and con men to act as American puppets, the new governments of, first Afghanistan and then Iraq, the names Hamed Karzai and Ahjmed Chalibi were, not just the short list, they were the only list. 

The task was simple, as outlined by Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.  The candidates had to be weak, corrupt, useless, conniving and distrusted by their own people.  Their tasks were clear.  They had to set up a puppet dictatorship, a platform for a war their incompetence would turn into years of civil war and low intensity conflicts, an environment for a seemingly endless entangling failure.  With billions in no-bid contracts to pay off political allies and opponents alike, each nation would sink into poverty, ethnic, regional and sectarian violence, warlordism and militias would abound.

The major accomplishment would be to attract extremist elements from the Islamic world, into an environment filled with weapons, training expertise and American soldiers to kill.  The underlying task was to create, not a ten year war, but a 50 year War on Terror to replace the failed Cold War, a multi-generational conflict that could be controlled like turning the knob on a stove.  Just as with Operation Northwood, the Department of Defense plan to stage terror attacks to justify an invasion of Cuba in 1962 or the recent admissions of rogue Israeli operations, operations exposed by the brave admissions of Ambassador Michael Oren, this kind of war could be nurtured, managed a thousand ways.

It was into this environment we dumped General Stanley McChrystal, consigned to babysit President Karzai and oversee a decade of “rope-a-dope” military operations, all with a clear set of operational goals, don’t interfere with the corrupt Karzai dictatorship and leave the $65 billion dollar drug business in the hands of “your elders.”  General Stanley McChrystal, during his “Bush years” oversaw phantom operations meant to foment terrorism, radicalize Islam and create a siege mentality inside America. 

Why would someone want to quit a job like that?  All you had to do to keep your job was to lose and lie, lie and lose.  What more would a military commander wish for?

After last months attack on the Loya Jirga, the meeting of Afghanistan’s senior elders, Karzai fired his top security officials, the only men surrounding him capable of any strategic comprehension.  The Jirga itself was a sham, with many names omitted and many more added, all to give more of the look of an American political convention than a tribal conference.  Karzai’s rule died there and then.  Rule? They call him the “Mayor of Kabul.” 

McChrystal held on, for awhile at least.  With the billions in drug money floating around, floating into so many pockets, buying everyone in sight, no report will come out, certainly not from Holbrooke nor especially from the CIA.  Wouldn’t it be nice to hear, “I coudn’t take it anymore.  I didn’t sign up to be a security guard at a whore house.”  But that isn’t true, that is exactly the job Stanely McChrystal did sign up for.  With a bit more talent, he could have played piano.  If being a “Special Operations” guy working for Dick Cheney with his personal death lists, doesn’t make one immune to the smell of sewage, I can’t imagine what would. 


McChrystal had been bloodied before, particularly by the Pat Tillman affair.  Tillman was an amazing man, a top professional footballer who left a multi-million dollar career to become an Army Ranger.  Far from being a typical “dumb jock,” Tillman was a brilliant scholar and student of philosophy.  On April 22, 2004, Tillman was killed in Afghanistan.  He was posthumously awarded the Silver Star and Purple Heart.  The death, like every other tragedy from 9/11 to Terry Schiavo, was played for maximum publicity by the Bush administration, milked, not only to promote war but as blatant self aggrandizement for Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Rove, leaders whose military credentials were in serious need of a bit of polish.

General McChrystal issued a report siting enemy action for the death but later sent out a report indicating possible friendly fire as the actual cause.  Chris Matthews of Hardall, on July 26, 2007 cited the killing as “fragging” a form of intentional homocide.  Autopsy results indicated no possible rationale for Cpl. Tillman’s death other than a premediated murder, with multiple 5.56mm bullets striking the Ranger in a tight pattern.   These were carefully aimed shots fired from only a few feet away, no other explanation is possible although many were given, and supported by the Army.  The doctors who examined the wounds said “murder” but the Army had another agenda, one General McChrystal signed onto, one of deception.

What began to come out was that every word released by the Army under the watchful authority of General McChrystal was a lie, not just the murder being depicted as “enemy action” but every detail of the continually changing stories describing what now looks to be a political assassination.  Cpl. Tillman had begun to openly discuss views “unfavorable” to the continuation of the war.  Tillman was not the “George Bush” crusader robot he was supposed to be.  He had disappointed.  He was going to have to pay.

With the presence of a sniper team nearby, a fact previously withheld, the source of the virtual “firing squad” salvo that killed Tillman was obvious.  What is also obvious is that Tillman was murdered at the direct orders of the highest authorities of the White House.  One “dead Tillman” talking peace could have been worth a thousand “live Tillmans” in the field, if all of those threatened and coerced had only kept silent.

Whatever Stanley McChrystal does with his life, panding to neocon extremists, the “book” and the tours that go with it or real retirement, the murder of Pat Tillman will follow him to the end of his days. 


Imagine winning a war by hiring your enemy to handle security for your logistics.  Imagine doing so in a landlocked country with supply lines not seen since the Burma Road in World War II.  Imagine, coercing an enemy to the negiation table who you are actually paying to fight you.  “Please, if you don’t stop attacking us, we will bring in more troops and have to pay you millions of dollars to deliver their ammuntion and food.”

Can it get worse?

Imagine your allies in Afghanistan.  You have an army and national police force that, with ten years of training and billions of dollars spent, are less effective each day, a force seen by the people of Afghanistan as a threat.  The army, of course, was built with one purpose, to incite a civil war.  The Pashtuns of Afghanistan, the majority population, see the army, made up almost entirely of northern tribes who settled the region from the Steppes of Russia, as a national minority.  When the same minority is armed and moving into the South under orders from President Karzai, it is an invading force.

Is it a good thing if the people of the country hate the national army, many of whom are mercenary gangsters led by the druglord friends of the Karzai brothers, reputed to be the largest drug cartel in the world.  Karzai and Richard Holbrooke, President Obama’s special envoy, see eye to eye on many things, or rather fail to see at all.  Neither seem to be able to find a poppy field nor can they find the massive economic corruption that eats up the majority of expenditures earmarked for military and police readiness or nation building projects.  Supplied by the US with billions of dollars in discretional personal spending earmarked by “Karzai Incorporated” for other projects, enriching allies, buying loyalty or suppressing dissent, any hope of democracy in Afghanistan is nothing but clowning around.


We all know about Joe Biden. I can see him, yarmulke carefully perched on his head, declaring his undying loyalty to Israel.  You could smell the lack of character through the television set.  Richard Holbrooke is no surprise either, we understand why McChrystal hated him also.  Then again, we also remember the Marjeh operation, America’s military tooling its way down to Helmand province, the ragtag rabble of the failed Afghan army in tow, out to oversee the opium harvest in a few small villages misrepresented as a large urban center, a regional Taliban bastion.  One “Israeli commando” with a bulldozer could have taken the whole place down in an afternoon.

These realities seemed to escape the general during his tenure in Afghanistan:

  • Only a small minority of insurgents fighting the US qualify under our definition of Taliban.  As the word “taliban” means “student,” the wider use easily applies to any follower of the teachings, Mohammed (Peace be on Him) , Jesus Christ or Buddha.   Had we not placed Karzai in Kabul, we would not have a war today.
  • Karzai was defeated in a rigged election.  What this means is that, despite massive voter fraud, it was still necessary for him to rig election results too.  He lost by that much. 
  • Karzai’s recent efforts have been to gain further control of the electoral process, using influence paid for with drug money, fraudulent awards of US contracts and outright gangsterism.
  • General McChrystal is being criticized for strict rules of engagements to prevent civilian casualties.  Many call him weak for this.  He is really weak for failing to inform America that we are fighting civilians, the entire nation of Afghanistan.  The only person in the country we are sure isn’t Talian is Karzai.  They woudn’t have him.
  • It would have simply been acceptable for General McChrystal to resign rather than slinking away from a disasterous military defeat by petty whining, no matter how accurate, carefully calculated to force the president to remove him.

General McChrystal may still have a chance to write his own place in history.  There is much he could do for the veterans, tens of thousands, who suffered under his command.  There is much he could say about the controlled press or his own failures and what he would do differently, given the chance.  Considering he leaves his command in the worst possible condition imaginable, he must have some fascinating insights to pass on.

Some say McChrystal will become the darling of the far right, that medling of guns, oil and kosher baloney.  Only time will tell.

    I want Ron Paul and his supporters know that I got upset with him because of his son. I have financially supported both of them in the recent months and had plenty of faith in both of them before I heard about Rand Paul’s support for Israel which simply made me sick.

    I got to know about Ron Paul only after the 2008 election and he should have been our president in 2008. I was being brainwashed by Fox news and the conservative radio hosts who–were unfair to him during this election. If he were the president we would have saved lives of so many of our troops and more Muslims. I really want to have someone like Ron Paul but I feel his son is now in the way for which I get upset with him as well as Ron Paul.

    I want to give him all the credit for everything he has done for so many years and God bless Ron Paul!

    I am concerned whether he has the same passion he had in 2008 and whether his own son feels embarrased at his father’s foreign policy ideology now that he has become one of neocons. I love Ron Paul’s foreign policy ideology, his wanting to end the fed, end income tax, abolish the CIA. I am even for abolishing FEMA, energy department and homeland [in]security.

    If Ron Paul became the president in 2008 Israel would not have attacked the peace activists and there would be no war against iran.

    TroubleMaker, we cannot allow Israel to continue to murder people. If they harm Gordon Duff they will be greatly punished. We need to have courageous politicians and they have to come from the average middle class where you find decent people with enormous courage. We need decency and courage in them. Most lawyers and doctors are corrupt. 99% of bankers are corrupt.

    Israel must be dealt with.

    We have seen darling little kids being beheaded by criminal Israel and we most recently had Israel’s massacre of aidworkers on the flotilla and are we going to allow Israel continue these atrocious murders? No we should not. That is why we need politicians of high caliber who will say no to these atrocities and by supporting people like Rand Paul we will not change anything.

    Internet Censorship has started already. I am not able to get articles on the website, Daily Paul. Neocon warmongers are trying to destroy the Liberty movement and it is suspected that they have infiltrated this group and are trying to sabotage it from within. Rand Paul should be blamed for this. This man has proven to be a traitor and I don’t understand why anyone in the Liberty Movement should donate money for his campaign. Being the son of Ron Paul should not give him the priviledge of collecting money at the expense of other candidates who truly deserve financial help for being true Libertarians instead of the traitor Rand Paul.

    It is not about personalities but principles. Ron Paul, you must discipline your greedy, power hungry and devious son who is destroying the efforts of millions of people who have put their faith and money into building this Movement or else both of you leave the Liberty Movement. We have no time to play around and we need people for the Cause of Liberty and Rand Paul is for destroying Liberty and freedom of countries/people whom Israel perceives to be its enemies.

    Ron Paul has done a bad job of raising this man who has turned out to be another traitor and because of whom the entire Liberty Movement is at risk. We need Rand Paul to leave politics. If not father ansd son both should leave.

    We need new blood. We need people whom we can trust and they don’t have to be lawyers and doctors. They can be farmers, carpenters, plumbers, retired post masters, little shop owners, truck drivers, house wives, people who have courage to stand up to the tyrant Israel and point the finger and say “you did 9/11, you bombed USS Liberty, you did Levon Affair and we are coming after you”. [Please we don’t need freemasons or eastern stars as politicians]

    Advice to Iraq war veterans against war who are planning to attend the 6th annual convention in Texas. Please read the article by Robert Hannafin for details.

    I thank Robert Hannafin for everything he is doing to stop the death of more young troops through endless war and I applaud all our young soldiers and their families for standing up–against this racket called “war on terror” to keep America safe.

    We all know about the opium trade. It is shameful to continue an illegal drug business while lying to American people that soldiers are fighting a real war and I blame politicians and senior military officials for this crime. I saw the tapes–I don’t want to go into details and I am sure our soldiers will understand what I am referring to–and I know our soldiers have been given orders to do such and there again I blame the military commanders–for using our young troops to harm innocent civilians.

    I ask young soldiers not to commit suicide but make a decision to fight injustice–while asking God to give them strength. We must not hesitate to show our disapproval of people and their harmful activities–regardless of who they are. It is our duty to honor the US Constitution which should be everyone’s Big Boss.

    I wish that this convention be a great success!

    However I like to remind everyone planning to attend this about safety. Personal safty and security of certain Americans have become increasingly risky because there are criminals who like to cause harm–so watch out whether you are flying, drving an automobile, riding a tour bus or train or crossing the street. Also be watchful about a manmade hurricane or a twister, floods from blowing up a dam nearby, arson fires and various other fires from explosive material etc and lastly be careful not to do bar hopping or get drunk when your vulnarability will escalate.
    Don’t go out on dates with strangers who might turn out to be hired murderers.

    Be alert and watchful at all times and God bless you all!

    “This is not just about the Vietnam War and Agent Orange; it is about all toxic exposures in all theaters of our recent wars, whether in Thailand, Eglin Air Force Base, Guam, Puerto Rico, Texas, the Gulf, Iraq, or Afghanistan. The larger lesson continues to be that the cost of war doesn’t end when the guns are silent. In fact, it takes a generational toll.

    This effort is just getting started. What works in one area may not work in another area. But sharing ideas, info, intel, and good stories is needed. Local initiative, local creativity, and local enthusiasm and energy will be essential.”
    Thus, a few VSOs had already begun moving out on these concerns months ago, and I believe that with a little encouragement and grassroots support that may be lacking from VSO membership a SENSE OF URGENCY will follow that just might match the enthusiasm, energy, man power, and money thrown at and shown by VSOs for Flag Amendments and Stolen Valor Acts” says Bobby Hanafin.

    I thank the author of this article, “VVA says tell your Agent Orange Stories and take Grassroots Action”. I thank Sharon Perry founder of Agent Orange Legacy organization and hope that this will reach a new level of success in 2010 and all future years to come.

    We need to gather information about all different ways our soldiers and veterans have been killed, maimed, injured both physically and mentally and harmed through exposure to poisons directly or indirectly through deliberate meaans and other exposures like depleted uranium and other nuclear material.

    In the article “Camp Lejeune [NC] Informational Meetings” by Robert O’Dowd, VT 6/17/10, he informs us the following:

    “The Bell Legal Group sponsored two informational meetings for Camp Lejeune. Jerry Ensminger, a retired Marine Master Sergeant, spoke at the first meeting in NC and Mike Partain, a former Camp Lejeune dependent and male breast cancer survivor, spoke at second meeting here in Florida.

    According to Mike Partain, they were not really sure what to expect with these meetings or who would show. Based on their experiences at the two meetings, it is quite apparent that our Camp Lejeune community is in the dark as to what happened at the base. Partain and Ensminger plan to hold future meetings to spread the word to others.

    The water provided by the Tarawa Terrace and Hadnot Point distribution systems was highly contaminated with various chemicals, including the VOCs (volatile organic compounds) known as PCE (Tetrachloroethylene aka Perchloroethylene), TCE (Trichloroethylene), DCE (Dichloroethylene), Vinyl Chloride and BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, and Xylene).These chemicals are either known or suspected human carcinogens

    Many Marines, Sailors, their families and civilian employees have been affected by the contamination in various ways including, but not limited to: liver cancer, kidney cancer, breast cancer, bladder cancer, ovarian cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, lung cancer, leukemia, non Hodgkins lymphoma, liver disease, miscarriages, birth defects (cleft palate, heart defects, Choanal atresia, neural tube defects, low birth weight, and small for gestational age),etc. Unfortunately, many of these families still have not been notified by the USMC of the danger from their exposure. In 1987 Camp Lejeune was recommended for listing as a Superfund site on the National Priorities List (NPL) by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Camp Lejeune was officially listed as a Superfund site in 1989.

    Partain told us that the meetings are being held to provide critical information to the affected community, to spread the word and inform ourselves as to what really happened at Camp Lejeune.

    During the two previous meetings, Partain and Ensminger showed some of the key documents, explained what contaminated the water and where the contamination was found. They also discussed what the USMC knew about the contamination, when they knew it, and what they have reported/not reported to the affected community”

    Please read the full article and thank you for your support for those who are trying to bring this vital information to other military families.

    As you can see these criminals have engineered all different ways to harm our soldiers and veterans. Poisoning their water supply is just one of the plans. We know about Agent Orange and what it has done to our veterans. So many young soldiers are murdered and their murders covered up. Pat Tillman is among them. So many are killed in other ways. Roadside bombings, suicide bombers, military airplanes and helicopter crashes have killed them. These are being orchestrated by Mossad and carried out by Mossad, IDF and their agents under the Mossad supervision. It is time for people to stop blaming Muslims–and start pointing the blame precisely where it belongs.

    Stanly McCrystal is a member of CFR. Is the exclusive membership to this anti-humanity organization given to US generals for their willingness to have young Americans in our military killed?–in order to get promotions and other worldly benefits–and in order to be among the 500 million people who will live on the plannet–after billions of humans have been killed including our young soldiers–as a part of the NWO agenda.

    “Thanks to the terrible power of our International Banks we have forced the Christians into wars without number. Wars have a special value for Jews since Christian massacre each other and make more room for Jews. Wars are the Jews’ Harvest, the Jew banks grow fat on Christian wars. Over one hundred million Christians have been swept off the face of the earth by wars and the end is not yet”— Rabbi Reichorn at the funeral of Rabbi Simeon Ben-Iudah in 1869–Taken from the website: I am the witness.

    Henry Kissinger is responsible for destroying many lives of our soldiers and this is what this warmonger has said about them: “dumb stupid beasts to be used as pawns for foreign policy”.

    On behalf of all soldiers and veterans living and dead I condemn the above utterances of the war criminal Kissinger and those of Rabbi Reichoran and I also condemn all warmongers whose words and actions have led to the illegal wars which America has been fighting on behalf of Israel

    I also condemn architacts of the NWO and their enablers like the Christian Zionist pastors and all other murderers wh are aiding and abeting them.

    Assalamua’la manittaba al Huda! USA and the whole world is astonished to see the debacle on which USA fell and the bravery and valor of Taliban whose commander in chief is a man name Mullah Mohammad Umar Mujahid. This gallant Islamic leader resembles the ist generation of the Muslims i.e. the comanions(May Allah be pleased with them all) of the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in all facets. Now every body in the globe are curious to know about this great leader who-unbelievable to hear- splitting the crusaders! A brief biography of Mullah Umar is presented before the scrupulous readers of VT.

    Ameer-ul-Mumineen Mulla Muhammad Umar Mujahid belongs to a respected family of religious scholars. His family is renown for the religious services offered by it for centuries. His full name is Muhammad Umar Mujahid bin Maulwi Ghulam Nabi Akhwand bin Mulla Muhammad Rasool Akhwand bin Mulla Muhammad Ayaz Akhwand. He belongs to a well-known branch of the Hootak tribe, which has been living in Kandahar for about a hundred years. Mulla Muhammad Omar was born
    in 1960 in the ‘Noori’ village in Kandahar Province. Kandahar used to be the capital of the Indo-Subcontinent when it was justly ruled by the great Afghan Mujahid conqueror, Ahmad Shah Abdali. Mulla Umar’s father, Maulwai Ghulam Nabi, was a religious scholar and the Imam at a mosque in Noori. His predecessors lived in the province of Zabul, in the districts of Shakay and Beirut, where, even today, a water stream is remembered by the name of one of Mulla Umar’s respected elders. Mulla Umar’s family has produced religious scholars in every generation, who have
    rendered countless services to Islam for centuries. His family is well known to have a great fervour for Islam. Almost all of his predecessors have been religious scholars, rendering religious services in the southern provinces of Kandahar, Zabul and Uruzgan. The people of Afghanistan have consulted his elders for centuries, seeking guidance on religious, economical and social issues.

    Mulla Omar was just three when his father, Maulwi Ghulam Nabee Akhwand, passed away at the age of forty. He was the only child of his parents. His younger brother and three elder sisters had passed away at a young age. Therefore, after his father’s demise, he was not only an orphan but also the only child of his mother. Who could have thought at that time that this poor boy would go on to become the Ameer-ul-Mumineen of Afghanistan and a symbol of bravery, valour, patience, humbleness and
    Jihad in the Way of Allah (SWT)? After his father’s death, his eldest paternal uncle, Maulwi Muhammad Anwar, married his mother and remains the head of the family. Allah (SWT) gave the family three sons and four daughters, who are still alive and waging Jihad in the Way of Allah (SWT).

    One of his brothers was martyred in 1998 when a massive bomb went off outside his office in Kandahar.It was an assassination attempt on his life planned by both the CIA and the Northern Alliance Commander, Ahmad Shah Masood, who by the will of Allah (SWT), was assassinated on 9 September 2001. Other paternal uncles of Mulla Umar are Haji Mulla Muhammad Hanafiyyah Akhwand, Haji Mulla Muhammad Jumma Akhwand and Haji Mulla Muhammad Wali Akhwand. All of his uncles are known to have great fear of Allah (SWT) but Mulla Wali Muhammad Akhwand stands out for his excessive prayers and remembrance of Allah (SWT). All his family members live under the same roof with love and unity. The young men in the family are all participating in Jihad and are sacrificing their life and wealth to rid the world of Disbelief and Evil.

    Mulla Umar received primary education from his benign guardian, loving stepfather and generous uncle, Maulwi Muhammad Anwar, who was a religious scholar and Imam at a mosque in the Beirut district of the Uruzgan province where he taught a mass of religious students. Other than his under his uncle, he studied the Quran, Hadith and Fiqh from many accomplished scholars whose names are not available. For a period he also remained a student of his other uncle, Mulla Muhammad Jumma Akhwand.

    Mulla Muhammad Umar’s family, a family of tribal scholars, never went after the attractions of this world. Instead they chose to devout their lives for the propagation of Islam and the imparting of religious knowledge. Their lives are a living symbol of patience and gratefulness towards Allah (SWT). Upholding the name of Islam and following its laws staunchly were goals superior to all worldly gains. Wealth and material possessions were never able to weaken their resolve. It was due to this disregard for the luxuries and life of this world that neither Mulla Umar nor any of his uncles own any houses, land or estates.

    It was 1978CE (1398 AH) and Mulla Umar was studying the highest-level book of the Hanafi school,the ‘Hidayah’, when Afghanistan was stormed by Communist aggressors, followed by the Soviet Red Army in December 1979. Thousands of young Muslims with the fear of Allah (SWT) and honour, decided to quell the Red insurgence. Among these soldiers of Allah (SWT) was an energetic young man of no more than eighteen years of age: Mulla Muhammad Omar. Filled with religious fervor and love for Islam, he took up weapons and headed for the battlefield. At the height of his youth, he
    stepped forward against the disbelievers and terrorised their ranks. He had resolved to revive the forgotten duty of Jihad that Allah (SWT) and his Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) adored so much and whose real meaning was bygone for the Muslim Ummah. He actively participated in the Jihad from the very beginning and it was then that the foundations of the Taliban Islamic Movement and the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan were laid, which were to serve as the source of light, hope and life for the dejected Muslim Ummah drowned in the darkness of apathy. It was, in effect, the beginning of the Islamic renaissance.

    At the onset of the Jihad against the Communists and the Russians, he was fighting the enemies of Allah (SWT) in the Beirut district of Uruzgan Province. It was whilst he was wrecking the ranks of the disbelieving invaders that he sustained serious injuries on two occasions. The first time was when his leg was badly inured by rocket shrapnel and the second time was when he came under intense machinegun fire, which left his body riddled with bullets. He received medical treatment for the extreme wounds inflicted on his body, which, though they wounded his body, never scratched his incessant will to wage Jihad against the forces of Satan. Soon, by the grace of Allah (SWT), he regained his health and was back in the battlefield to devastate the enemies of Allah ( SWT).
    His valour and gallantry filled the enemies with terror and his ceaseless attacks on the Communists raised alarm. His experienced and perceptive uncle anticipated the designs and conspiracies of the Communists and advised him to move the centre of his guerrilla operations to the South-Western district of Panjwai. Another reason for selecting this area was that the Kandahar-Herat highway passed through this district, which was a crucial supply line for the Communists. This busy road was an excellent target for guerrilla activities, so Mulla Umar moved his unit of Mujahideen to Panjwai.
    His excellence as a leader, competence as a tactician and unmatched fearlessness made him emerge as an exemplary guerrilla commander. His fellow Mujahideen admired him for his humble ways, good manners and virtuosity, whereas the oppressed Afghans adored him for being an honest and generous man. On the other hand, his presence was a nightmare for the Communists and the Russians. He paid occasional visits to his parents in Uruzgan during this period of Jihad.

    It was during the period when he was fighting the Russians in the area of Sangsar, that he was badly injured for the third time, in an intense encounter with the Soviets. This time he sacrificed his right eye in the Way of Allah (SWT). His companions said that he was taken to a hospital in Quetta, Pakistan, due to the severity of his injury. After surgery, he was advised by the doctors to make
    Tayammum (ablution without water) instead of making Wudu (ablution with water) since water could have aggravated his wounds. Against the doctors’ advice, he always used water for ablution and never prayed without proper Wudu. He used to say: “It is not possible for me to stop making Wudu for such minor wounds.”

    Mulla Umar’s companions during the Jihad against the Soviets and Communists included the Talibans’ first and foremost Commander-in-Chief, Shaheed Mulla Muhammad (RA), Shaheed Mulla Naik Muhammad (RA), Shaheed Mulla Borjan (RA) and famous commanders, Mulla Bradar, Mulla Yaranah, Mulla Ubaidullah and Mulla Akhwandzadah. At that time he was associated with Maulwi Nabi Muhammad’s group, Harakat-ul-Inqelab-al-Islami. He was the group’s local commander and a sure shot with the RPG-7 (antitank weapon). Refreshing his memoirs of those days, one of his old time friends described an encounter with Russian armour. It was in the district of Panjwai where the Mujahideen under Mulla Umar’s command were fighting the Russians. One of the Russian tanks was expertly hidden in the terrain and had inflicted substantial damage on the Mujahideen. This tank had martyred many of the Mujahideen therefore imposing on them considerable pressure. The tank was placed in its position with such skill thereby making it lethal for the Mujahideen to target. In order to tackle this hurdle and to ensure the safety of his fellow Mujahideen, Mulla Umar took the challenge. Armed with a RPG launcher and a supply of rockets, he moved to a position from where he could attack the menacing armour. He fired a sequence of rockets on the tank and at last, on the sixteenth RPG, by the will of Allah (SWT) it went up in flames.

    During the Jihad neither Mulla Umar nor any of his family members migrated to Pakistan, Iran or any other country. They stood firm and chose to defend their faith and honour at the cost of their lives and wealth. On the rugged mountains they made their stand and from here they swooped on the Red Soviet Bear. During 14 years of Jihad against the Russians and after their defeat, Mulla Umar rarely
    travelled outside Afghanistan except for receiving medical treatment in the border town of Quetta. It was common practice among Afghan commanders to visit Pakistan every year and enjoy the luxuries of city life while they consulted their supporting governments and received aid. Mulla Umar, on the contrary, never made any such trips, which probably saved him from foreign influence and prejudice.
    Being a low-level commander, the needs of his unit were fulfilled locally and never demanded his absence from the battlefield. This turned out to be truly beneficial for the future of Islam and Jihad.
    Fortunately for the Muslim Ummah, all throughout his life he was exposed to only two elements: pure Islamic education and practical Jihad in the way of Allah (SWT). These exemplary fourteen years of his life are filled with purpose, chivalry, courage, vigour and perseverance in the way of Allah (SWT). Allah (SWT) willed for him a country life filled with Islamic knowledge and Jihad battlefields. The Almighty never exposed him to the outside world filled with greed, egocentricity and corruption. He was gifted with a true understanding of Islam and Shariah (Islamic laws), which, upon implementation, transformed war torn Afghanistan into a depiction of the Islamic society during the time of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and his Companions (RAAH).

    After the defeat and subsequent evacuation of the Soviet forces from Afghanistan, Mulla Umar went back to his religious studies. In a quiet and simple fashion, he got married at the age of 31. Allah (SWT) blessed him with two sons, Yaqub and Idris. There have been reports of Yaqub’s martyrdom in the recent barbaric bombing by the Americans on Kandahar. While the Mujahideen commanders initiated a power struggle for Kabul, he started to teach at the local mosque.

    With the passage of time, the post Communist era in Afghanistan saw even more destruction and oppression perpetrated by the so-called Mujahideen leaders. As the situation of law and order deteriorated, and the honour and property of the common man became even more insecure, the Afghans became dismayed with the power hungry commanders. Most of these commanders were Communists who had infiltrated the ranks of the Mujahideen to take advantage of their success. It was the survival of the fittest and the weak had no one to turn to for justice. The honour and chastity
    of women was neither safe inside their homes nor outside. Sick women were abducted from hospitals, never to be seen again. Parents smuggled their young sons to Pakistan just to save them from the paedophile commanders. The Governor of Kandahar, Gul Agha, married a boy in a well-set and publicised wedding. After every few kilometres was a commander’s check post set up to dispossess the people of their livelihood and honour. Robbery and looting was commonplace. Human life became so cheap that people were killed on minor issues. Homes and businesses were ransacked and burned down. Allah (SWT) earth’s was ravaged and plundered; there was no peace and all hopes of tranquillity were at an end. Then it seemed the blood of the Martyrs and the fruits of Jihad were going to be lost.
    The following account was received from a reliable source and it unveils the Satanic face of the post Russian era commanders in Afghanistan:
    A man was travelling in the province of Kandahar when he was stopped at a looting point set up by a Communist commander. When the poor man was harassed for money, he asked the commander’s men why they were looting him and if Allah (SWT) and His Prophet, Muhammad (SAWS), had permitted them to do so. They said they would ask Allah (SWT) and Muhammad (SAW). He was taken inside the check post and one of the harassers addressed a satanic clean-shaven man as Allah (SWT) and asked if he had given him permission to loot the poor man. The man replied yes. Then another ugly
    clean-shaven man was addressed as the Prophet Muhammad (SAW), who also granted their claim. Then the commander’s men told the unfortunate man to hand over his money as he had witnessed Allah (SWT) and the Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) affirm their demand.

    Mulla Muhammad Umar’s heart bled as he saw the misery of the Afghans. It was unbearable for him to sit in his mosque and teach while the land of Jihad was transformed into a living hell for his people. Islam was kicked aside by the commanders and the sanctity of Muslims were torn. Afghanistan was
    burning and the West warmed hands over it.
    It was in 1993-94; at the age of 33, that Mulla Muhammad Umar Mujahid, with a group of around 15-30 religious students started the Tehreek-al-Islami-at- Taliban (the Taliban Islamic Movement).
    They attacked the local commanders’ check posts in Kandahar and after securing them, took the border town of Spin Boldak in an amazing operation. After securing the area in and around Kandahar, they implemented the Shariah Laws and chased the Communists out of the province. More students joined them and the people welcomed the Taliban everywhere they went. Soon the oppressed people of other provinces invited them and the Taliban answered to their requests. One after the other, the
    Taliban took over the provinces of Afghanistan and by implementing Shariah, restored peace andorder. In 1996, the Taliban took over Kabul and Mulla Muhammad Umar was unanimously accepted as the ‘Ameer-ul-Mumineen’ (the Leader of the Believers) of Afghanistan. Thus the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan came into existence.

    Once a delegation of guest came to visit Mulla Umar. Fresh bread, cream, tea and other delicacies were brought for the guests and they all began to eat heartily. All except Mulla Umar that is. He refused to touch the cream or the bread. His guests ushered him to eat with them but he refused. His advisors also urged him to eat with the guests, indicating that there was nothing wrong with him eating this food since it had not been brought especially for him; it was brought for the guests and he was the host. He still refused. A few moments later, a worker brought in a bowl of plain soup together with some hard, stale bread. Mulla Umar proceeded to break the hard bread with his hands and eat it with the soup. Upon being asked the reasons for his refusal to eat the cream, Mulla Umarsaid: “When the lowest person in my country eats this food, then I will eat it.”

    I really enjoy reading your articles, I like the insight and perspective. I am a young iraq vet that should have stayed on the farm( my ignorance was bliss). However, I did not, I here stories from brothers who went to Afgan. My contract was up right after the deployment to Iraq, so I can not speak first person of the BS going on there. The stories are vary similar and it the same over and over again. My biggest nightmare from the deployment is not one of direct combat or poor leadership or the fact that I couldn’t call mommy every week, but one of an entire city leveled because of “insurgent activity”. Najaf, 2004. I had passed through this city twice a week for at least six months prior to the destruction of it. NO ISSUES. I could get very detailed about my Issue with this leadership call, but long story short is, I can not blame the city for what they did to the company that relieved ours.

    Hey, that reminds me – whatever became of Dick Cheney. Remember him? A couple of months ago he was storming all over this once-great nation – the same nation he helped to destroy – warning his brain-dead, clueless constituency what a danger the Obama administration posed for this troubled country. Three months ago you could not shut the hideous, gnarled old freak up. What happened to him?

    I’ll tell you what happened to him: At this very moment, our esteemed, former vice-president is in some “undisclosed location”, meeting with a team of the cleverest lawyers money can by. The gazillion dollar justice hammer is within months of crashing down on the spiteful old bugger with a vengeance he doesn’t dare contemplate (bad heart, you know). Very soon the executives of BP will stand before a court of law. When that day arrives, they will spill their miserable guts as to what REALLY went on in those secret meetings between the Bush Mob and the oil industry in the early months of that hideous administration. It’s ain’t gonna be pretty, boys and girls. Not pretty at all.

    Dick Cheney’s days as a “beloved elder statesman are seriously numbered.

      IF YOU ARE UNHAPPY: Once upon a time, there was a nonconforming sparrow who deceided not to fly south for the winter. However, soon the weather turned so cold that he reluctantly started to fly south. In a short time ice began to form on his wings and he fell to earth in a barnyard, almost frozen. A cow passed by and crapped on the little sparrow. The sparrow thought it was the end. But, the manure warmed him and defrosted his wings. Warm and happy, able to breathe, he started to sing. Just then a large cat came by and hearing the chirping investigated the sounds. The cat cleared away the manure, found the chirping bird and promptly ate him.

      The moral of the story:

      1. Everyone who shits on you is not necessarly your enemy.

      2. Everyone who gets you out of the shit is not necessarily your friend.

      3. And, if you’re warm and happy in a pile of shit, keep your mouth shut.

      Dear Equalizer,

      Astute observations, however, I do not think that the outcome will be what is expected. I strongly suggest that the many fine strategic minds who post here take a look at the latest linguistic analysis by Cliff High at halfpasthuman.org Cliff used to provide his seemingly prescient forecasts of events and behaviors to the Fortune 100. Then his own research lead him to worry about the direction that the USA and PLANET were taking…so he began creating special reports on political, economic and social events just for regular people. I buy them for the amazing price of $10.00 and have been amazed at how accurate his predictions are.

      His latest report is very important for all military people to read. Please. Then get all your friends in the military to read it as well. Israel will not be able to get America out of this mess because they have created way too much of it and the American public knows that.

    Add in the fact that they burned Tillman’s personal effects, including his armor and you can see that the Pentagon was worried that their ‘Golden Boy,’ Tillman, had soured on the Afghan war and was due back home on leave, where he was prepared to tell some truths about our blundering about in Afghanistan.

    I hate to go off topic here but I think this becoming urgent and could pretty well trump everything else.
    This is from Wayne Madsen Reports but I found the article on rense. I checked out the map coordinates and what is stated here appears to be true. Be advised.

    Go check it out. This could actually be the false flag we’ve all been waiting for. Here’s the first few paragraphs:

    The Government is not letting you know everything about the Gulf Oil Spill. Benzene in incredible amounts is being released into the air. People are getting sick. UN Vans by the thousands are parked in secluded areas out of site from the public on AF Base in Florida just below Jacksonville. They are also in many other areas. Enter this grid into Google maps and you can see for yourself. 29.97213,-81.660047 (you will have to enter the coordinates)

    The petro-chemical-military-industrial complex is gassing Gulf Coast residents with poisonous Benzene and Corexit dispersant at dangerously high levels in the largest U.S. domestic military operation to date. The military and FEMA are engaged in Emergency Plans for 36 urban areas from Texas to Florida due to the unstoppable Gulf oil volcano the size of Mt. Everest, as WMR reports, indicating evacuations. Some people are advised to relocate now. (See Parts III and IV)

    Satellite imagery that Obama’s administration withheld shows “under the gaping chasm spewing oil at an ever-alarming rate is a cavern estimated to be around the size of Mount Everest. This information has been given an almost national security-level classification to keep it from the public,” writes Wayne Madsen.

    • Nelson_2008  June 24, 2010 at 2:37 am

      For what it’s worth I really don’t think the BP oil “spill” was an intentional act.

      First of all, somebody’s losing big money on it.

      Second, the Khazar Whorehouse on the Potomac, masquerading as “our” “government”, I’m sure wants to squander the few remaining national resources available on destroying Israel’s alleged “enemies” in the Mideast, e.g., Iran, rather than having to manage an economically and politically costly domestic mega-disaster.

      Moreover, domestic oil reserves would be quite important when their next war of aggression reduces the amount of oil coming from the Mideast.

      With that said, I believe they are lying and/or withholding information about the extent of the disaster and the likely consequences. After all, how can pathological liars not lie? It’s in their nature. They can’t help themselves.

      I also believe that high-level BP insiders knew that well was a problem and posed a high risk. That may be why Hayward sold his BP stock not long ago.

      What worries me is that this oil “spill” will cause our Khazar Masters and their Whorehouse on the Potomac to speed up their plans for more war.

    • Equalizer  June 24, 2010 at 6:26 pm

      Nelson, I disagree with your belief: “I really don’t think the BP oil “spill” was an intentional act”. Seems to me that this is a case of the proverbial fire-cracker hitting the wood-shingled roof and burning the domicile to the ground. Something “dumb” turned out to be an “Oh Shit” situation. Now the “dummies” are executing a “Chinese fire-drill”.

      For a “ho hum” read google House Resolution 2194. I see a catch-22 there. But, gee, if Iran can’t tap into IT’S petroleum reserves; maybe some “special” country will tap the reserves for Iran. And, furthermore, who writes those ridiculous bills? More about H.R. 2194 later.

      I am not sure that this conclusion can be sustained when it is disclosed that Cheney, Buffet and lots of the Goldman Golems purchased oil spill “management” companies and the company that makes the extremely toxic (and illegal in Europe) dispersant being used on the spill right now. Furthermore, Goldman shorted the Deepwater/Transoacen stock very shortly before the mysterious blowout that left a big very circular hole on the deck of the rig and which the rig workers were forbidden to speak about.

    • Michael J Volz  June 25, 2010 at 7:15 am

      Our only hope perhaps is if the brass has the balls of George Washington there will be a coup d’etat. Let’s see if any of them can put the USA as formulated by the Founding Fathers in front of their own personal comfort and convenience. Many Americans have already done that by investigating 911 when the generously paid public servants have failed to do their duty. Steven Jones, Christopher Bollyn, Gordon Duff, Jeff Gates, Daryl Smith, Mike Rivero, Alan Sabrosky, a thousand architects and engineers, and countless others including Veterans of the USA Armed Forces have done their patriotic duty. There is ample evidence generated by patriotic unpaid citizens to demonstrate that our system is upside down and not functioning as designed. That is SELF EVIDENT.

      People like Michael Chertoff and Michael Mukasey have proven the USA legal system has been neutered and not functioning as designed to effect justice in the USA.

      What legal basis would there be for that? At the time of THE REVOLUTION Thomas Jefferson certainly realized that there was going to be no redress through the services of a London lawyer. That was a reality which precluded court action as a possible solution so he used the argument in the Declaration of Independence of some things being “self evident”.

      What is SELF EVIDENT is that a foreign government and it’s domestic helpers has hijacked the United States of America so the government is no longer serving the interests of it’s citizens nor doing their duty to them.

      Now, like then a New York lawyer is not going to solve this problem. They are the problem.

      Meanwhile all citizens can call their congressmen and senators twenty-four hours seven days a week and demand redress.


    • Equalizer  June 25, 2010 at 3:07 pm

      Have you ever call your congressmen and senators to tell them how you feel about the matters discussed here?

      Well, I have done that. People may laugh and say that I am accomplishing nothing. I am not God so nothing will change because I called.

      I will tell you this though, I have done something and that is better than nothing.

      If everyone in the USA did what I do it would definitely have some effect. Trust me , my calls did not go unnoticed so even if no one else called my thoughts are sticking in someone’s head.

      Most people who feel like i do about what is going on are in fact afraid to do what I have done, just as the top military brass is afraid to do something that needs to be done.

    THE GENERAL TOLD THE TRUTH! Obama never served in the military and has no idea what to do. The war has nothing to do with freedom. It’s all about controlling the assets of the country. It’s also about preparing the way for the ANTI-CHRIST.

      Though I am not a betting man I would say that Mac Mac’s motivation was nothing more than a cloudiness of his obligation to be a professional soldier by his motivation to cater to the Right Wing base. He’s no hero. The real hero’s of this entire quagmire was Colin Powell when he warned Baby Boy Bush against a war in Iraq and bluntly saying “If you break it…..You own it” and current V.A. Director General Shinseki when he warned that we needed thousands more troopers in order to be successful. However, as I stated earlier the good ol boys had the man’s head on a platter with Americans demonizing them as being unpatriotic after years of unblemished service by these two great Generals.
      Now Mac Mac throws his rifle down in the middle of combat operations and says or rather puts into motion tools to have himself removed. Some kind of hero!! Many of you will be rather disappointed when Mac Mac is on the Sarah Palin tour. The handwriting is on the wall!!
      Many of you flood this board with idiot comments as to the qualifications of Pres. Obama. However, remember he is the ONLY Senator that said NO……..Let me repeat NO NO NO NO to Iraq. Since he has been in office he HAS….Let me REPEAT HAS downsized our presence in Iraq with the last Combat Elements on schedule to get the hell out of there. He further has a plan to downsize our presence in Afghanistan. Now ALL of sudden the WARMONGERES, many of you on this board, are in a rush to get out while criticizing a peaceful man. Simply fricking MAZING!!!

      Against Going to War with Iraq (2002)
      by Barack Obama
      Delivered on Wednesday, October 2, 2002 by Barack Obama, Illinois State Senator, at the first high-profile Chicago anti-Iraq war rally (organized by Chicagoans Against War in Iraq) at noon in Federal Plaza in Chicago, Illinois; at the same day and hour that President Bush and Congress announced their agreement on the joint resolution authorizing the Iraq War, but over a week before it was passed by either body of Congress.

      Good afternoon. Let me begin by saying that although this has been billed as an anti-war rally, I stand before you as someone who is not opposed to war in all circumstances.

      The Civil War was one of the bloodiest in history, and yet it was only through the crucible of the sword, the sacrifice of multitudes, that we could begin to perfect this union, and drive the scourge of slavery from our soil. I don’t oppose all wars.

      My grandfather signed up for a war the day after Pearl Harbor was bombed, fought in Patton’s army. He saw the dead and dying across the fields of Europe; he heard the stories of fellow troops who first entered Auschwitz and Treblinka. He fought in the name of a larger freedom, part of that arsenal of democracy that triumphed over evil, and he did not fight in vain.

      I don’t oppose all wars.

      After September 11th, after witnessing the carnage and destruction, the dust and the tears, I supported this Administration’s pledge to hunt down and root out those who would slaughter innocents in the name of intolerance, and I would willingly take up arms myself to prevent such a tragedy from happening again.

      I don’t oppose all wars. And I know that in this crowd today, there is no shortage of patriots, or of patriotism. What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war. What I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz and other arm-chair, weekend warriors in this Administration to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne.

      What I am opposed to is the attempt by political hacks like Karl Rove to distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income — to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone through the worst month since the Great Depression.

      That’s what I’m opposed to. A dumb war. A rash war. A war based not on reason but on passion, not on principle but on politics.

      Now let me be clear — I suffer no illusions about Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal man. A ruthless man. A man who butchers his own people to secure his own power. He has repeatedly defied UN resolutions, thwarted UN inspection teams, developed chemical and biological weapons, and coveted nuclear capacity.

      He’s a bad guy. The world, and the Iraqi people, would be better off without him.

      But I also know that Saddam poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, or to his neighbors, that the Iraqi economy is in shambles, that the Iraqi military a fraction of its former strength, and that in concert with the international community he can be contained until, in the way of all petty dictators, he falls away into the dustbin of history.

      I know that even a successful war against Iraq will require a US occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences. I know that an invasion of Iraq without a clear rationale and without strong international support will only fan the flames of the Middle East, and encourage the worst, rather than best, impulses of the Arab world, and strengthen the recruitment arm of al-Qaeda.

      I am not opposed to all wars. I’m opposed to dumb wars.

      So for those of us who seek a more just and secure world for our children, let us send a clear message to the president today. You want a fight, President Bush? Let’s finish the fight with Bin Laden and al-Qaeda, through effective, coordinated intelligence, and a shutting down of the financial networks that support terrorism, and a homeland security program that involves more than color-coded warnings.

      You want a fight, President Bush? Let’s fight to make sure that the UN inspectors can do their work, and that we vigorously enforce a non-proliferation treaty, and that former enemies and current allies like Russia safeguard and ultimately eliminate their stores of nuclear material, and that nations like Pakistan and India never use the terrible weapons already in their possession, and that the arms merchants in our own country stop feeding the countless wars that rage across the globe.

      You want a fight, President Bush? Let’s fight to make sure our so-called allies in the Middle East, the Saudis and the Egyptians, stop oppressing their own people, and suppressing dissent, and tolerating corruption and inequality, and mismanaging their economies so that their youth grow up without education, without prospects, without hope, the ready recruits of terrorist cells.

      You want a fight, President Bush? Let’s fight to wean ourselves off Middle East oil, through an energy policy that doesn’t simply serve the interests of Exxon and Mobil.

      Those are the battles that we need to fight. Those are the battles that we willingly join. The battles against ignorance and intolerance, corruption and greed, poverty and despair.

      The consequences of war are dire, the sacrifices immeasurable. We may have occasion in our lifetime to once again rise up in defense of our freedom, and pay the wages of war. But we ought not — we will not — travel down that hellish path blindly. Nor should we allow those who would march off and pay the ultimate sacrifice, who would prove the full measure of devotion with their blood, to make such an awful sacrifice in vain.

    • Michael J Volz  June 24, 2010 at 7:03 pm

      I have no question about anyone’s skin color with regard to his qualification to be POTUS. For “black” Americans I think is it desirable to have a “black” president but I don’t think that is a very good builder of Obama’s qualifications to be POTUS.

      I have seen nothing in his background, knowledge, experience and accomplishments which would qualify him to be POTUS.

      As far as I’m concerned legitimate questions about his technical eligibility to be POTUS have not been satisfactorily answered but in fact have been ignored a stifled by legal maneuvers. The fact that he has surrounded himself with dual citizens in the most powerful positions in the administration which compounds that concern.

      The legality, acceptability and desirability of dual citizenship is very much in question I believe.

      Many other legitimate questions about his background have been raised only to have his agents seal up records every time there is a question.

      Actions speak louder than words still and numerous realities are evident since he became president. The war has been expanded and secrecy in his administration is not consistent with his promise of transparency. He has not addressed the legality of the war or investigated the 991 terrorist attack nor said anything about the Unpatriotic Act.

      Fritz Hollings a long term Senator from SC who is qualified to be POTUS said the war in Iraq is a war for Israel and everyone in Washington DC knows it but is afraid to say it. I agree with Senator Hollings who is able to see the two ton elephant in the room and thinks that is important. Obama it seems is one who does not want to discuss the exact nature of the war and it’s cause. Is he afraid to say it? Never a peep from Obama about Israel, except a few minor tempests in his teapot which resulted in no meaningful or substantial actions.

      Finally, I question Obama’s knowledge of history in saying the Civil war was all about slavery and so it was a GOOD war. That is a naive, uninformed and simplistic notion about the Civil War which I do not believe many historians would support today.


    • B.A. Gilmore  June 25, 2010 at 7:21 pm

      I agree with C.J. about the war. However I don’t agree with you about black people think it’s desirable to have a black president. We want a fair president. Someone who doesn’t show up on campaign day and then slip away like a thief in the night. Someone concerned about all the people. And if Obama believes the Civil War was all about slavery, that’s what he learned in school just like I did. You don’t know how many years it was before I knew the Emancipation Proclamation only freed slaves below the Mason-Dixon line. And I don’t even want to think about when I heard about Juneteenth. No he’s not naive and simple. He was uninformed – deliberately – by a country that has too many secrets and history it wants to forget.

    • Michael J Volz  June 25, 2010 at 8:26 am

      If Obama is opposed to “dumb wars”, why doesn’t he end them right now as Nader would have if he been elected?


    • C.K.  June 25, 2010 at 8:09 pm

      The way I see it is like this. Given the monumental task of being the President of the U.S. he is doing just fine. Compound that with a 2 front War and one of the GREATEST RECESSIONS in American History what the HELL else do you expect given the man has only been in office for less than 2 fricken years. Look at the markets HATERS. Don’t you see some degree of recovery after 8 years of “W” at least the faucet is NOT wide the HELL open.

      Now everyone who has some ISSUE is pressing the man to take up their cause knowing full well that if it was a White President he would say “Screw you I’ll get to you when I get to you IF I get to you!!!”

      But, the demands on one man in such a short period of times speak volumes.

      You got the Gays pirouetting down the street screaming he is not addressing their cause!!…When he IS!!!

      Wall Street crooks spewing negative campaigns while he is in the midst of reforming them. Why? Because he is DOING SOMETHING!!

      Obama says Clean Energy and Big Oil pushing the Palin Neo Con train of Drill Baby Drill with senseless rhetoric AND look what that has brought on!!!…The largest Oil Spill in U.S. History!!!!

      Rednecks plotting assassination attempts with the most threats on a President since J.F.K!!

      Immigration Reformists pleading for troops on the borders knowing DAMN well we are fighting a 2 front WAR!! Then they take bold steps, as a slap in the face, of initiating Jim Crow Laws that they would have NEVER AND I REPEAT NEVER WOULD HAVE DONE IF A WHITE MAN WAS IN OFFICE!!

      Just plain Ol’ Disrespectful SH!T!!!

      Many of you call yourselves Liberals and take smugness in that fact. However, at the end of the day your rants and raves have the SAME affects as the Neo-Cons, WHICH IS CONFUSION FOR THE MASSES, that in the end plays into the hands of those you think that you are opposing!!!

      YOU PEOPLE ARE MAD and to think I’m the one that takes the V.A. “blue pill.”

      As a Black American we recognize that Barack has done absolutely NOTHING to further OUR cause. However, we recognize the madness and tasks that he is facing.

      So take my advice and exercise some COURTESY and COMMON SENSE when expressing your opinions about this President.

    • Michael J Volz  June 29, 2010 at 7:49 am


      I’m glad you recognize Obama has done nothing for “your” race. I have jew and black ancestors and I don’t let that blind me to reality.

      Obama is a wet behind the ears pup who has been groomed for over ten years by cynical zionists who knew he would get all the black vote and blacks would support his (their) policies no matter what.

      The only reason I say it it is good for black Americans to have a black president is to help them get over their racism and not vote for a candidate primarily for his skin color.

      Most blacks if not all blacks I know voted for Obama because they see him as a “black man” and will go to any lengths to justify everything he does and doesn’t do.

      How are you going to fight an illegal war “well”?
      The war is a farce and Mcchrystal confirmed that by saying they have shot a lot of people and none of them proved to be a real threat.

      Black Americans have been played like like fiddle
      by the zionists jews and they are his absolute masters.

      Do you mean the two ton elephant?

    • Michael J Volz  June 30, 2010 at 8:06 am


      “the first thing I will do if I am elected president is bring our troops home”, Barak Obama

      CK, the cynical jews knew people like you would support and justify anything Obama would do, even things contrary to his promises!!!! He must have found out it is a good “dumb” war.

      The jews knew along Obama wouldn’t really be allowed to bring the troops home. They spent a lot of time creating those wars, their lap poodle isn’t going to end them!!!

      The zionist masters control black men and white men. Sorry to rain on your parade!





    • Michael J Volz  June 25, 2010 at 6:31 am

      Agreed. He is zionist lap poodle dog. He barks a lot but doesn’t do anything when push comes to shove. His grandpa may have served but like Bush, sending men into battle is a theoretical exercise.


    • C.K.  June 25, 2010 at 12:28 pm

      Well the way I see it is that I have grave concern for global humanity. Yeah Barack maybe a lap dog for Israel. However, where was your bitching and moaning when prior Presidents were drinking the Israeli Kool-Aid? Where were YOU when this brave soul spoke out against the war in the first place? Let me guess…..HMMMMMMM…OK. You were in front of your T.V. watching the BOMBS fall on Baghdad singing Patriotic Songs and chanting U.S.A…..U.S.A….U.S.A!!!! What a bunch of f’ng hypocritical IDIOTS!!! Now that the War is F..UP you want to come out the closet and criticize every aspect of what this man does. YOU KNOW DAMN WELL that there is NO such thing as picking up in the middle of the night and “Bringing the Boys Home you simple @SSHOLE!!” Then you will be sitting in front of your Dumbtube and laptops saying Barack is a coward because he CUT and RUN!!!

      None of you and I repeat NONE OF YOU have a say or standing in this matter if you beat the WAR DRUMS of this senseless WAR!! So shut your fricking mouths and TAKE IT LIKE A MAN OR WOMAN!!!

      ***PLEASE NOTE**** I am not one that hides behind a keyboard. Every OPPORTUNITY I get to get in the face of you OBAMA HATERS I put your ass in check whether it is in Church or Wal-Mart!! How dare you criticize a person that is doing what it takes to end this AS HE PUT IT “DUMB WAR!” Now you spew venomous lies, deceit, and hate with hypocrisy DRIPPING FROM YOUR LIPS!!!

      As far as you Mike Volz..You are such a smug dumbass a sentence let alone a whole paragraph would be a total waste of time!! LMAO!!!

      100% OBAMA SUPPORTER!!!!!!

    • Michael J Volz  June 25, 2010 at 5:01 pm

      CK, “hiding behind my TV or laptop”?? I may be the only person on this site who has used his/her real name with plenty of identifying information. People around me know what I think and I have paid a high personal price for being true to myself and saying what i really think.

      You my friend are completely incorrect about everything you have written here at least certainly as it pertains to me.

      You assume knowledge of things you have no knowledge of . With respect to Israel I did not wake up yesterday. Nor with respect to history and world affairs, business, finance and science I am confident after reading your remarks, I have achieved a much more advanced level of knowledge than you.

      You acknowledge that Obama may be a lap do of Israel.
      My view is the same as Michael Rivero who’s website is whatreallyhappened.com. Mike says all American “leaders” should place the interests of the USA first, second and third and so in our opinion there is absolutely no place for a lap dog for Israel in American leadership at any level.

      It just so happens Obama is seventh cousin to me and that is not a close relative but knowing I’m a blood relative of his engenders absolutely no desire to denigrate him in any way. In fact it is quite the opposite.

      I wish Obama the best and wish my criticisms were true but this is a very serious matter and I say what I really think. I have never “Rah Rah ed” any war.
