IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHINGWed Jul 25, 2007 13:26
NONE ARE SO BLIND AS THOSE WHO DO NOT WANT TO SEE
FPF/HR: This is a great article; just look around you. 'High noon' for everybody to open the eyes and ears. This is a very good description of the world forced upon us by this US/UK junta. And - based on life long experience as a foreign correspondent - I fully agree with Jerry Mazza in this 'Online Journal' article* that 'none are so blind as those who do not want to see'. Do NOT listen to their words, look at their deeds!
If we do not see nor understand what's very well stated below, and get rid of the worst plague permanently hitting mankind, those psychopaths* will get rid of us. Not only in the US but everywhere on our earth... - HR
IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING
By Jerry Mazza - Online Journal Associate Editor
July 25, 2007 - Catchy, isn’t it? It’s the theme line of the New York City, Metropolitan Transit Authority’s advertising campaign that has run from 2002 through 2007. It’s a call to keep our eyes open for “terrorists” and to be the eyes of the law wherever we are, as if there weren’t enough eyes and cameras already.
The slogan runs on bus panels and posters in subway cars. It often shows an abandoned black bag looking ominously at you with the theme line above it. Sometimes there’s a robot on wheels about to snatch the case for detonation. Ah well, fellas, I do see something here, and I’d like to say something.
I see that that black bag of Fear as the Pandora’s Box of the Bush administration. If you open it, you’ll see everything from the dinosauric Office of Homeland Security chewing up $46 billion this year to find purported terrorists in every corner, under every bench, newsstand, subway car and bus. In fact, Fear has come to be color-coded daily in yellow, orange, and red, so the frightened know just how bad to feel and how to color-coordinate. It’s called mind-and-body-and-soul (MBS) control.
In contrast, whenever you get a surge of courage to be, do, act, say what you want to say, which isn’t what the administration wants you to say, I see you can get towed away indefinitely under the USAPATRIOT Act. You could end up at Gitmo marching around in chains behind barbed wire fences, accused of being an enemy combatant, deprived of your rights as a prisoner of war according to the Geneva Conventions. Or you could be rendered to some foreign country where torture is okay, a national pastime. And what with the loss of Habeas Corpus, I see you or I could rot there forever.
THIS EPIC DISASTER
I see our country gone to war in Iraq unilaterally, against the wishes of allies and the UN, on false premises, false intelligence, nonexistent WMD. Five years later, after a bogus election and the setup of a puppet government, I see us still slopping through the mud of the New Vietnam. I see hundreds of thousands of Iraqi citizens dead, countless numbers wounded, 3,600 Americans dead along with thousands of casualties, and hundreds of billions spent to bring you this epic disaster. I see poor urban blacks and Hispanics, poor rural white guys fighting, dying, with very few sons of the rich, and only a few sons of the Congress. And I see the poor struggling in ghettos to survive the bullets of power.
I see America’s game plan to build a circle of bases around Afghanistan, so they can attack Iran, the Caspian Sea Region, and even Pakistan if it becomes necessary. I see Afghanistan’s puppet President Karzai pathetically encouraging us as the Taliban creeps back in. I see his country’s production of opium at an all-time “high,” ready to turn into heroine and make its way to American streets, into the arms of American kids, hardened junkies, and dysfunctional victims everywhere.
I SEE THE CIA AIDING AND ABETTING ITS TRANSPORT AS PER USUAL.
I see us using the dope loot to prop up our shadow government and help pay for black ops around the world, i.e., assassinations like the president of Lebanon, and for the subversion of other governments, the propping up of more “friendly puppets” everywhere. I see us blaming Syria for Lebanon’s loss, though Syria’s army has pulled its last units out of Lebanon, and either country possibly next on our hit list, that is, before or after Iran.
I see Israel continuing to swallow Palestine, dividing and conquering Hamas, Hezbollah and Fatah. And yet I see Jewish communities protected and thriving in Iran. I see Russia forced into a new cold war by George W. Bush, who insists he's going to deploy missile "defense" systems near Russia's borders, and who thinks it's okay to use nuclear weapons. I see us forcing Putin into nuclear confrontation as we continue to mess with countries surrounding Russia.
THE INTRODUCTION OF JUNK RELIGION
I see a fascist corporatism pumping money into every bad plan George W. Bush & Company have for America, the drum continuing to roll for privatization of Social Security and elimination of Medicare and Medicaid. I see the pounding away of unions, pensions, health benefits, leaving a Wal-Mart society for workers and consumers. I see the introduction of junk religion into every aspect of our intellectual, scientific, political and artistic life, the corruption of rational thought for faith-based retrogressive, generally racist organizations of the right, televangelists of the night. Pat Robertson & Company, you know who you are.
I see the entire New Deal and Franklin Roosevelt’s vision of serving the “common good” coming under attack by the nefarious neocon “Constitution in Exile Group,” who would like to overturn the 1937 Supreme Court’s backing of New Deal legislation and the powers Roosevelt necessarily assumed to save his country from disaster -- one created in large part by Republicans and free market speculators -- who are now as then looting America mercilessly, destroying its infrastructure, castrating its industry, sending millions to the streets unemployed.
I see our so-called terror protectors as the real terrorists. I see the CIA forcing NORAD to stand down on 9/11 because there were some dozen anti-terror hijacking drills that day. I see the World Trade Center hit by airliners that didn’t have the power to bring them down, burning in a half-hour to an hour-and-a-half with the fire of jet fuel not hot enough to melt steel. I see the Towers come down in a matter of 10 seconds, the speed of gravity, in each case, and falling, being exploded in neat heaps of rubble. I see the exploded clouds of concrete and asbestos, detonations from the bottom to the tops of the Towers.
I SEE TOWER 7, PULLED ON LARRY SILVERSTEIN’S ORDERS, EIGHT HOURS AFTER THE INITIAL HITS.
I see that internal demolition is impossible unless a building is prepared months in advance, as were the Towers, including 7. I see Marvin Bush walking away from the board of directors of Securacom, the company in charge of World Trade Center security from 1993 to 9/11. I see it relieved of its duties then, changing its name to Stratosec.
I see fellow Americans, friends, neighbors, even family, often afraid to broach any of these subjects, often totally asleep to them, especially as media moguls and the administration claim every shred of truth to be “conspiracy theory,” the great black curtain they sweep down before the daily drama to keep all but a few in the dark.
I see all the forensic evidence, the molten steel, a hundred thousand tons of it, spirited away like booty by Giuliani in a matter of eight months to bury the truth, like the bodies of the victims buried originally in ash, trash and steel. And nearly six years later, I see no building to replace the gone WTC. And I see Larry Silverstein, its lessee, with about a $4.5 billion insurance award in all. I see the tapes of the crashes of that day over and over again, and they make me angry and amazed the government got away with murder . . .
What I don’t see are Muslim terrorists, who supposedly perished in the attack. I do see one of the so-called hijacker’s passport miraculously popped up in the massive mess of the World Trade Center, intact, like a poppy planted in a graveyard. I see none of the terrorists names on any of the flight manifests. [end quote]
