From AMIA To Armageddon

Posted by Thunder Pig on November 19, 2007

According to foreign reports, Israel destroyed a nuclear weapons installation in Syria in September. Never has a larger story been pushed under the rug by so many so quickly. What are we to make of this?

Over the weekend former federal prosecutor and the head of the non-governmental International Intelligence Summit, John Loftus, released a report on Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program. His report was based on a private study of captured Iraqi documents. These were the unread Arabic language documents that US forces seized, but had not managed to translate after overthrowing Saddam Hussein in 2003.

After a prolonged battle between Congress and then director of US National Intelligence John Negroponte, President George W. Bush ordered those documents posted on a public access Web site last year. They were taken down after it was discovered that among the Iraqi documents were precise descriptions of how to build nuclear weapons.

As Loftus summarized, “The gist of the new evidence is this: Roughly one-quarter of Saddam’s WMD was destroyed under UN pressure during the early to mid 1990s. Saddam sold approximately another quarter of his weapons stockpile to his Arab neighbors during the mid-to-late-1990’s. The Russians insisted on removing another quarter in the last few months before the war. The last remaining WMD, the contents of Saddam’s nuclear weapons labs, were still inside Iraq on the day when the coalition forces arrived in 2003. His nuclear weapons equipment was hidden in enormous underwater warehouses beneath the Euphrates River. Saddam’s entire nuclear inventory was later stolen from these warehouses right out from under the Americans’ noses.”

Loftus then cites Israeli sources who claim that the Iraqi nuclear program was transferred to the Deir az Zour province in Syria.

LOFTUS’S REPORT jibes with a report published on the Web site of Kuwait’s Al Seyassah’s newspaper on September 25, 2006. That report, which I noted last November, cited European intelligence sources and claimed that in late 2004 Syria began developing a nuclear program near its border with Turkey. Syria’s program, which was run by President Bashar Assad’s brother Maher and defended by an Iranian Revolutionary Guards brigade, had by mid-2006 “reached the stage of medium activity.” The Kuwaiti report stated that the Syrian nuclear program was based “on equipment and materials that the sons of the deposed Iraqi leader, Uday and Qusai transferred to Syria by using dozens of civilian trucks and trains, before and after the US-British invasion in March 2003.” The program, which was run by Iranians with assistance from Iraqi scientists and scientists from the Muslim republics of the former Soviet Union, “was originally built on the remains of the Iraqi program after it was wholly transferred to Syria.”

These reports and several others like them which have surfaced over the past several years tell us interesting and disturbing things. First, they show just how difficult it is to gather accurate information on the status of weapons of mass destruction programs.

From 1991 Gulf War until the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction programs were a top issue on the international agenda. And yet, year in and year out, UN inspectors, who were on the ground throughout most of the period, failed to provide an accurate picture of those programs. Indeed, the documents and reports regarding the transfer of those programs to Syria show those inspection reports were wildly off the mark.

Commentary

A BIG part of the silence about the Israeli strike on the Syrian Nuclear Program is it would lend credence to our invasion of Iraq, and provide support for the upcoming attack on Iran.

Ron Paul is a Useful Man for Democrats

Posted by Thunder Pig on November 19, 2007

The Ron Paul story never seems to end — and yet never seems to quite make it into the mainstream media. That’s because, in the political equivalent of a bank shot, Paul’s fringe support helps bleach embarrassing stains from the Democrats.

First there is the revelation that Jim C Perry, the “Orthodox Jewish” head of “Jews for Paul” also calls himself a gay pagan Unitarian.

Now it turns out that Perry, Paul’s point man in response to questions raised by the Jewish Telegraph Agency, is also accused of stealing money from the local New Hampshire branch of the Libertarian Party. What a great guy! It’s only an accusation. And the “Libertarian” Perry was in 2006 running for New Hampshire Legislature as a Democrat.

Oh yes: Then the federal raids started.

It turns out that some folks actually buy-in to Ron Paul’s blither about US dollars being “phony money”. Here Paul is talking about “phony money” at a recent Ron Paul rally outside the Philadelphia Mint with a large crowd including — surprise, surprise, — some more white supremacists. (Who show they fully understand the New Orleans protocol.)

Some of Paul’s gold bug supporters been trying to pass so-called “Liberty Dollars” off as real currency at stores nationwide. Sleepy clerks have given them change in US currency for purchases. Raids have been conducted in the last few days by the FBI and Secret Service at Liberty Dollar HQ in a strip mall office in Evansville, Indiana, (that’s not where I would be keeping three pounds of gold, but I digress) as well as Asheville, NC (here the segregationist ‘Council of Conservative Citizens’ is very concerned) and a private mint located in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Arrests were also made recently in Wisconsin (on their blogsite, these geniuses detail three places where the spent Liberty Dollars as if they were legal tender). In 2006 two arrests had been made in Buffalo, NY. The Evanston raid netted a huge load of “Ron Paul Dollars” apparently just delivered from Idaho and backed perhaps by the full faith and credit of… Ron Paul?

At least Asheville is getting some well-deserved recognition out of the Ron Paul Campaign!
And, I did happen to capture an exclusive video of a couple of Ron Paul Supporters sweating it out as they wait to see if the feds are coming for them===>

Commentary

Praise the LORD and pass the ammo! This needs to be repeated across America every time someone has their home, or a neighbor’s broken into. I would do the same for my neighbors, and I know one of them would for me (JR has all the fun toys!) and the other would wait until they passed his driveway to take ’em down because he prefers hunting from Tree Stands.

West Carolina Report for Nov 19th

Posted by Thunder Pig on November 19, 2007

I have redesigned, and relaunched, my headline news site with a much cleaner design with room for expansion and multiple contributors.

I will no longer archive the headlines for more than a day or two, and will accept news articles and commentary for inclusion on the site, and will archive them as part of this blog for the time being.

Email me if you wish to participate with WCR somewhere in your subject line, if you know my personal email address, use that to ensure a quicker response from me.

If you are a Lefty, Libertarian, or Other, and not hooked up with one of the other bloggers in the area, I will be open to including your work in this effort…most especially if you are reporting on local government meetings or providing an account of a news story.

This is also the comment thread for the headlines and stories published over there today.
