-----------------

In charge of security for the entire World Trade Center complex: Marvin Bush, George W. Bush's younger brother. NOT ONLY THAT, but Marvin Bush and his "Security Firm" were ALSO in charge of Security for the AIRPORTS from which the doomed planes took off! {And were possibly never seen again -- at least flights 77 and 93 weren't, as NO BOEING 757 HIT THE PENTAGON and no plane seems to have gone down in Pennsylvania, either -- no luggage, bodies, seats, etc. that you ALWAYS see as debris after ANY OTHER PLANE CRASH.}
It would have been IMPOSSIBLE, either to RE-ROUTE THE PLANES; or to GET INSIDE THE THREE TOWERS AND PUT EXPLOSIVES IN THE PROPER PLACES, a highly-skilled and lengthy and exacting job; WITHOUT THE FULL CO-OPERATION OF BUILDING SECURITY; locks, cameras, alarm systems, had to be circumvented; and detailed blueprints of the buildings' structure, not available to just anyone, would have had to be used.
So, MARVIN BUSH THE P/RESIDENT'S YOUNGER BROTHER, WAS IN TOTAL CHARGE OF SECURITY FOR THE WTC COMPLEX AND, AND, AND, THE AIRPORTS FROM WHICH ALL 4 FLIGHTS TOOK OFF.

Then, who was in charge of NORAD, that STOOD DOWN for the only time in its entire history, that day of 9/11? Why, none other than Vice-P/Resident Dick Cheney, is who! THE ONLY TIME IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE WORLD, THAT A CIVILIAN WITH NO MILITARY EXPERIENCE WHATSOEVER, WAS IN CHARGE OF A COUNTRY'S MILITARY AIR POWER. This has NEVER happened before or since, or in any country with a military air force, in the entire world; having a civilian OUTRANK ANY MILITARY OFFICERS in charge of a nation's Air Force. NO FOREIGN "TERRORIST" or foreign power, and not YOU and not ME and not a person off the street bent on a criminal act, has the POWER TO MAKE NORAD STAND DOWN, just on your or my or Joe Blow's command.

SO WHO IS PULLING WHOSE STRINGS??? Are Dick Cheney and the Bush family patsies of someone else; maybe aliens from outer space with mysterious mind-control powers??? OR ARE OUR TWO "FIRST FAMILIES", THE STRING-PULLERS THEMSELVES?????

It is NOT THAT DIFFICULT TO FIGURE OUT. Just, most people are completely dis-oriented by WHAT IS RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF THEM. It totally upsets their view of their entire universe. As in that excellent film, "The Matrix". EVERYTHING you have believed about the way we are governed, is a LIE -- even if you start out from a position of criticizing the govt, you NEVER, EVER DREAMED IT COULD GET THIS BAD. At least I know that is how it was for me and for my family members.

Bushco and Cheney THINK THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH IT, by STIRRING UP HATRED FOR ARABS AND MUSLIMS; whose Oil, OF COURSE, they are after. JUST LIKE HITLER AND THE JEWS; Bushco has managed to receive popular support BY APPEALING TO FEAR AND HATRED of people "different" from us. The 19 "foreign terrorists" FALSELY ACCUSED BY BUSHCO TO COVER UP THEIR CRIMES, could not POSSIBLY have pulled off such an operation; and quite possibly were miles away at the time. Like Hitler and the Reichstag Fire, AN ENTIRE PEOPLE WERE BLAMED FOR THESE CRIMES; stirring up FEAR AND HATRED as an excuse to wage war AGAINST AN ENTIRE PEOPLE AND RELIGION. Just LIKE HITLER, wouldn't you say???

IF THE ARMY, THE ORDINARY SOLDIERS USED BY BUSHCO AS CANNON FODDER, KNEW THE TRUTH, THEY WOULD INSTANTLY STOP FIGHTING; AND NOTHING, NO THREAT AND NO PUNISHMENT, COULD MAKE THEM FIGHT IF THEY KNEW THE TRUTH. Soldiers have to feel they are fighting for a REASON. They want to feel they are making "heroic sacrifices". THAT IS WHAT KEEPS AN ARMY IN THE FIELD, GOING THRU HARDSHIPS. The soldiers in the field MUST KNOW THAT THEY ARE, LIKE THE REST OF US, DUPES OF BUSHCO AND NOT HEROES defending something-or-other. AND IT IS UP TO US, AND ONLY TO US, TO TELL THE SOLDIERS THEY ARE BEING USED AS DUPES. The soldiers will THEN know what actions they can and should take!

Yes, another PHONEY TERRORIST ATTACK BY BUSHCO, BY BUSH AND DICK CHENEY, is probably INTENDED before the next {s}election, that Republicans might very well LOSE, in spite of rigged machines and voter intimidation as before. As sentiment is so OVERWHELMINGLY AGAINST THEM, they might not be able to get away with the same Dirty Tricks as worked for them before.
This PHONEY TERRORIST ATTACK, could come in a place like VALDEZ, ALASKA; a small NUCLEAR BOMB set off there, in a rather isolated place, that could be sealed off instantly by the Army, so no snoops and photographers and eye-witness accounts that Bushco did not want to let out, as in 9/11 was the case.

BEWARE OF ALL THE PHONEY "TERRORIST ATTACKS" PERPETRATED BY BUSHCO'S CIA AND BRITAIN'S MI5; whose purpose is TO TRY TO MANIPULATE YOU INTO HATING ARABS AND MUSLIMS; and manipulate SOLDIERS into looking on Arabs and Muslims, AND NOT BUSHCO, as their "real" enemy that the duped soldiers think they are "protecting" us from. YOU CAN STOP THE SOLDIERS FROM BEING DUPED AND USED IN THIS WAY. YOU AND YOU AND YOU AND YOU.

If we civilians PROTEST TOO MUCH, and our protests seem to be getting TOO SUCCESSFUL, then Bushco WILL USE THOSE SAME DUPED SOLDIERS, AGAINST US; telling the duped troops that WE PROTESTERS are "terrorists" also. YOU HAVE ALREADY SEEN THAT. So it is IMPERATIVE that the TROOPS BE TOLD THE TRUTH about 9/11. The troops cannot be left OUT. Bush is STILL their Commander-in-Thief, er, Chief; and the troops WILL STILL FOLLOW BUSH AND DICK CHENEY'S ORDERS, whatever they are; UNLESS THE TROOPS HAVE A GOOD REASON TO NOT FOLLOW BUSH AND DICK CHENEY'S MURDEROUS ORDERS.

Bush and Dick Cheney, remember, kill not only Iraqis using U.S. troops as their "hit men" and "hit women"; Bush and Dick Cheney THOUGHT NOTHING AT ALL ABOUT SNUFFING OUT THOUSANDS OF LIVES ON 9/11. These people think NOTHING AT ALL, OF MAKING WAR ON INNOCENT PEOPLE; OR OF MAKING WAR ON THEIR OWN PEOPLE.
Just remember that. And TELL THE TROOPS.
BLINDLY obeying orders should NOT BE THE AGENDA OF MORAL MEN AND MORAL WOMEN, in the Armed Forces or not.

Pamela Ly 
 - globalresearch.ca
"Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq" provides the President with the authority to confiscate the assets of whoever opposes the US led war. Under this executive order, opposing the war becomes an illegal act.
=================================
The ONLY answer to this situation, is to MUTINY FOR PEACE.
MUTINY FOR PEACE.
You may be noticing, that CONGRESS IS TAKING NO ACTION;
AND WILL TAKE NO ACTION.
So DON'T BE SURPRISED if NOTHING happens there.
You are DELUDING yourselves if you think the answer lies with Congress.
NOBLE EFFORT, guys, thank you, and I am doing it too.
Knowing that IT HAS NO CHANCE OF WORKING.

The ANSWER LIES WITH THE ARMY.
Bush/Cheney are COUNTING on the Army, to carry out
and ENFORCE their Dictatorial Decrees. With GUNS.
But, the Army are OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS.
The Army is NOT ROBOTS, NOT ALIENS FROM OUTER SPACE.
 
The Army must BREAK THE HABIT OF BLIND OBEDIENCE,
subservience to a Commander-in-Chief who is
NOT WORTHY OF ANYONE'S OBEDIENCE OR RESPECT.
Bush is COUNTING ON the Army. If the Army will shoot, on Bush's orders,
an Iraqi, the same Army will shoot, on Bush's orders, YOU.
MUTINY FOR PEACE is the ONLY solution.

I probably will be one of those who
"has my property confiscated" for saying this.
But, WE MUST LET THE ARMY KNOW, THAT WE SUPPORT THEM 
WHEN THEY MUTINY FOR PEACE.

We have ALREADY lost our Democratic Rights. Congress is AFRAID.
The next {s}elections WON'T BE HELD; unless the Repug thugs can STEAL THEM.

MUTINY FOR PEACE. MUTINY FOR PEACE.
MUTINY FOR PEACE. MUTINY FOR PEACE.
Tell the Troops the Truth of what is happening here.
Then the Troops will know what to do.
If the Troops lose the Will to fight, THERE IS NO POWER ON EARTH
THAT CAN MAKE THEM FIGHT
. No threat, and no punishment can make
Troops fight, if they lose the Will to fight.

MUTINY FOR PEACE. Believe me, it's our ONLY HOPE.

"In substance, under this executive order, opposing the war becomes an illegal act.

The Executive Order criminalizes the antiwar movement. It is intended to "blocking property" of US citizens and organizations actively involved in the peace movement. It allows the Department of Defense to interfere in financial affairs and instruct the Treasury to "block the property" and/or confiscate/ freeze the assets of "Certain Persons" involved in antiwar activities. It targets those "Certain Persons" in America, including civil society organizations, who oppose the Bush Administration's "peace and stability" program in Iraq, characterized, in plain English, by an illegal occupation and the continued killing of innocent civilians.

The Executive Order also targets those "Certain Persons" who are "undermining efforts to promote economic reconstruction", or who, again in plain English, are opposed to the confiscation and privatization of Iraq's oil resources, on behalf of the Anglo-American oil giants.

The order is also intended for anybody who opposes Bush's program of "political reform in Iraq", in other words, who questions the legitimacy of an Iraqi "government" installed by the occupation forces.

Moreover, those persons or nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), who provide bona fide humanitarian aid to Iraqi civilians, and who are not approved by the US Military or its lackeys in the US sponsored Iraqi puppet government are also liable to have their financial assets confiscated.

The executive order violates the First, Fourth and Fifth Amendments of the US Constitution. It repeals one of the fundamental tenets of US democracy, which is the right to free expression and dissent. The order has not been the object of discussion in the US Congress. So far, it has not been addressed by the US antiwar movement, in terms of a formal statement.

Apart from a bland Associated Press wire report, which presents the executive order as "an authority to use financial sanctions", there has been no media coverage or commentary of a presidential decision which strikes at the heart of the US Constitution.. "
===========================================
THIS ORDER, AS YOU MAY NOTICE, DOES MORE THAN MERELY
CRIMINALIZE THE ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT.
IT SEEKS TO LEGITIMATIZE THE SEIZURE OF IRAQ'S
OIL RESOURCES BY BUSH/CHENEY/HALLIBURTON;
AN OUTRIGHT THEFT NO BETTER THAN A BURGLARY.

The U.S. Troops who are assisting their Commander-in-THIEF
with this BURGLARY and OUTRIGHT THEFT
, are actually, if
they ONLY KNEW IT
, NO BETTER THAN HIT MEN AND HIT
WOMEN FOR THE MAFIA, FOR A KLEPTOCRACY OUT-OF-CONTROL.

THE TROOPS ABSOLUTELY MUST BE TOLD THE TRUTH OF
WHAT THEY ARE PARTICIPATING IN. THEY MUST. THEY MUST
BE TOLD THE TRUTH, AND ALL THE TRUTH.
Then the Troops themselves will know what to do with this information.

MUTINY FOR PEACE.
That is the ONLY way to END THIS LONG NIGHTMARE,
which is getting WORSE.
Aside from the deaths and their OWN injuries and
psychological disabilities, WHAT SORT OF WORLD
WILL THE TROOPS BE COMING HOME TO???

Unless THEY THEMSELVES STOP FIGHTING in Iraq
and MUTINY FOR PEACE????????????? 
        

"Silence, they say, is the voice of complicity.
But silence is impossible.
Silence screams.
Silence is a message,
just as doing nothing is an act.
Let who you are ring out & resonate
in every word & every deed.
Yes, become who you are.
There's no sidestepping your own being
or your own responsibility.
What you do is who you are.
You are your own comeuppance.
You become your own message.
You are the message."

In the Spirit of Crazy Horse
---Leonard Peltier
===========================
The troops must actually be very near to Mutiny now, for this Executive Order, which reflects Bush's FEAR, to come at this time.
If your country has any Troops in Iraq or Afghanistan, this applies equally to YOUR country's troops.
If you are near any American bases in any country, in Europe, Asia, or wherever, YOU CAN TALK TO THE TROOPS THERE.
If you have family or friends in the Military, YOU ARE IN AN ESPECIALLY GOOD POSITION TO TALK TO THE TROOPS; TO TELL THE TROOPS THE TRUTH.
BMT
[The TRUTH is, that they are being HIT MEN AND HIT WOMEN FOR BUSH/CHENEY.
That is the ONLY TRUTH. Many Troops more-than-suspect-it ALREADY. It should NOT BE THAT DIFFICULT, in many cases, to TALK TO THE TROOPS. There are also means like Posters where the troops can see them, Leaflets and Flyers, Signs in demos, and GRAFFITI!]
[A really good opportunity for Americans, is when TROOPS COME HOME ON LEAVE BEFORE RE-DEPLOYMENT. TELL THE TROOPS WHY IT IS IN THE INTERESTS OF THEIR COUNTRY, THEIR COMMUNITIES, THEIR FAMILIES, AND EVEN OF THEIR ARMY BUDDIES, TO
NOT RE-DEPLOY!!! It is the Troops' PATRIOTIC DUTY TO NOT RE-DEPLOY.]

THIS IS MY TAKE ON THINGS -- BMUTINY T. I AM SOLELY RESPONSIBLE.

Wednesday July 4, 2007, 4:48 pm

Troops must lay down their weapons and not fire a single shot more at any Iraqi.
Airplane pilots must REFUSE TO GO ON ANY MORE BOMBING MISSIONS.
NO shot fired at an Iraqi citizen, or his family or his children, is justified for ANY reason whatsoever.

Iraqis are only trying to defend their country and get ALL AMERICANS OUT. They don't want their oil stolen. Bush is trying to hang on until the current negotiations to turn the oil over to the U.S. and Britain go thru the puppet Iraqi Parliament.

AMERICANS ARE NOT JUSTIFIED IN FIRING ANY SHOTS, EVEN TO DEFEND THEMSELVES. Yes, I said it and I will say it again. AMERICAN SOLDIERS, AND BRITISH AND OTHER SOLDIERS, IN IRAQ, ARE NOT JUSTIFIED IN FIRING EVEN TO DEFEND THEMSELVES.
They are ONLY justified in LEAVING. That's IT. That's ALL they can morally do. NOT DROP A SINGLE BOMB MORE; NOT FIRE A SINGLE SHOT MORE.
They DIE FOR A LIE. Both Americans AND Iraqis.

If the American troops STOP FIRING, THE IRAQI RESISTANCE WILL STOP FIRING AT THEM.

And that is what happened in Viet Nam. American troops stopped "doing battle" with the Viet Cong; and the Viet Cong stopped firing at them. THIS IS RECORDED IN THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE PARIS PEACE TALKS; as well as in plenty of anecdotal evidence of soldiers who were there.

There is NO SENSE AT ALL in obeying the INSANE commands of an INSANE COMMANDER-IN-THIEF.

===================================

This is what I wrote in response to the pictures of severely wounded, and dead, Iraqi children.


THIS IS WHAT I TRULY BELIEVE AND WILL STAND BY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

THIS I ALSO BELIEVE AND WILL STAND BEHIND ABSOLUTELY. BMT 

THE AMERICAN TROOPS WILL BE MUCH, MUCH, SAFER, IF THEY DO NOT FIRE A SINGLE SHOT MORE. AND MUCH, MUCH MORE LIKELY TO COME HOME WITH ALL OF THEIR LIMBS. THINK ABOUT IT.

IF THE AMERICAN TROOPS STOP FIRING AT THE IRAQIS, THE IRAQIS WILL STOP FIRING AT THEM. THEY HAVE SAID SO.

IF THE AMERICANS ENTIRELY STOPPED GOING ON PATROL, THEY WOULD NOT ENCOUNTER ANY FLESH-SHREDDING IED's. THE IRAQIS ALL KNOW WHERE THE IED's ARE! THEY ARE NOT TELLING THE AMERICANS! THEY SEE THE IED's, SOME OF WHICH ARE MASSIVE IN SIZE, BEING LAID, AND JUST WALK AROUND THEM!

60% OF IRAQIS HAVE SAID THEY APPROVE OF AMERICAN TROOPS GETTING KILLED! 60% OF THEM APPROVE OF THE DEATH OF YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS BY IED's AND BY GUNSHOTS AND WHATEVER ELSE IS OUT THERE WAITING FOR THEM WHENEVER THEY GO OUT ON PATROL!

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO CONCEIVABLE REASON FOR ANY AMERICAN SOLDIER TO RISK LIFE & LIMB, AND TO INCUR THE HATRED OF MOST IRAQIS, BY GOING OUT ON PATROL! NONE! NONE WHATSOEVER! NONE THAT ANYBODY CAN POSSIBLY THINK OF!

The Iraqis, their families, and their children, will be very happy if the Americans stop firing a single shot more; stop dropping a single bomb more!
IT IS TIME TO DO SOMETHING; NOT JUST TALK, TALK, TALK. IT IS TIME TO REALLY, ACTUALLY STOP THE WAR, THE ONLY WAY THE WAR CAN BE STOPPED. THINK ABOUT IT. THE ONLY WAY. BY MASS, MASSIVE CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE BY VERY LARGE NUMBERS OF TROOPS.

Pentagon Restricting Testimony In Congress Blocks Staff Of Lower Rank

 May 10, 2007 By Bryan Bender, Boston Globe Staff [Excerpt]

WASHINGTON -- The Pentagon has placed unprecedented restrictions on who can testify before Congress, reserving the right to bar lower-ranking officers, enlisted soldiers, and career bureaucrats from appearing before oversight committees or having their remarks transcribed, according to Defense Department documents.

The guidelines, described in an April 19 memo to the staff director of the House Armed Services Committee, adds that all field-level officers and enlisted personnel must be "deemed appropriate" by the Department of Defense before they can participate in personal briefings for members of Congress or their staffs; in addition, according to the memo, the proceedings must not be recorded.

REPLY:

Anyone who has served in combat in the armed forces of the United States has the right to say anything anytime to anybody, no exceptions whatsoever.  Someday, we will make that so again, as it used to be. 

The soldiers who served in 1776 elected their officers and did not hold their tongues.  Of course, that was a revolutionary army fighting an army of occupation. 

Which is, among other reasons, why we won.

The Pentagon idiots who came up with this one really know how to take an indefensible position in order to insure their opponents counterattack with redoubled ferocity.  

Gee, that sounds like Bush and Rumsfeld designing Iraq.

FYI, the publication does not print a comment or letter without taking off the writers IDs, if the writer is serving in the armed services that is, unless the writer wants to be publicly known.

That's to insure there is no harassment whatsoever for writing in. 

Respect for your service,

Do you have a friend or relative in the service?  Forward GI Special along, or send us the address if you wish and we’ll send it regularly.  Whether in Iraq or stuck on a base in the USA, this is extra important for your service friend, too often cut off from access to encouraging news of growing resistance to the war, inside the armed services and at home.  Send email requests to address up top or write to: The Military Project, Box 126 , 2576 Broadway, New York, N.Y. 10025-5657

What will it take to bring an end to the illegal Iraq war and Occupation?
It is on everyone's mind. Both Americans, and non-Americans, wonder what it will take.
Here are some points I would make:

1] There is talk blah blah blah about "storming Pennsylvania Avenue", "revolution", etc. Sorry my Leftist and non-Leftist friends, that simply ain't gonna happen. Life in these United States has just become too difficult and complicated; most people and their families are struggling for survival, to cope with debt or to keep out of debt, to keep healthy and to keep economically afloat. That is what takes up most people's energies these days. You can see it if you read what they write on Care2 groups. Then there are all these Natural Disasters because of Global Warming; broken Health Care systems and Educational systems; destroyed or decaying Infrastructure; etc. Most people simply are trying to make it thru the next month, or DEPENDING on that NEXT PAYCHECK.
They TALK big, to VENT -- but TALK is all that's happening. They are in no position to Storm the White House -- and possibly lose their JOB for that!
{Not to mention the Police armed with tasers, lasers, heat weapons, and god-knows-what!}
Same with wild plans to boycott, not pay taxes, go on strike, shut things down, etc. Sure, they would WORK -- only if EVERYBODY, or MOST people, did it. Ain't gonna happen. For the same reasons. People have FAMILIES to support; and their lifestyles they think they can't do without.

2] So, then what?
Well, THE ARMY ITSELF SAYS, IT IS STRESSED TO THE BREAKING POINT.
The soldiers, it is said, are LOSING THEIR WILL-TO-FIGHT. THIS is why, it is said, the PENTAGON HAS SHUT OFF ACCESS OF TROOPS TO THE INTERNET; except on a tightly-controlled and censored government channel, that they and their families don't like to use.
The same thing happened in Viet Nam. THE TROOPS WOULD NOT OBEY ORDERS TO "ENGAGE THE ENEMY".
And would often "frag" their officers, instead. Historical FACT.
The mis-Administration has learned NOTHING from the Lessons of Viet Nam!

My focus is, and has always been, to BRING THE TROOPS HOME. That, to me, is the KEY. Not silly talk of this & that "ideal" solution -- day-dreaming!!!

See the on-line film, if you haven't, "Sir! No Sir!".
The Resistance to fighting, resistance to obeying the orders they were given, plus civilian support, was what helped hasten the end of U.S. involvement in Viet Nam. Whether people think this was right or wrong, a Good Thing or a Bad Thing, that is what actually did happen.
Following this LOGIC, I say, we Civilians make LOUD AND CLEAR, PERFECTLY CLEAR TO THE TROOPS, our SUPPORT for them -- SUPPORT FOR THEIR COMING HOME!
That we also show our SUPPORT, for Lt. Ehren Watada, and several others, who have OPENLY RESISTED GOING TO WAR.
I think that there is going to be more and more resistance within the military -- that it will become, or is becoming fast, like Viet Nam.
Examples are, the 343rd Quartermasters {in 2005}, the 10th Mountain Division {earlier this month}. They both refused orders to go into danger zones with INADEQUATE armored protection. Well, I've heard that they aren't the ONLY ones with inadequate protection; and it figures, there must be other units where the word just hasn't gotten out, yet, about them. There was a video I remember seeing, about troops refusing to protect a convoy driven by contractors, not the US Army. Don't know if it was released which unit it was.
Stuff like that, the military is just FRANTIC to censor! Doesn't want the word spreading from troop to troop!

So, then, eliminating all the stuff that WON'T work, that CAN'T POSSIBLY work, this is ALL I can come up with! Like it or not!
Some people strongly disapprove of this -- of troops, in essence, mutinying. {The Pentagon calls it, "Combat Refusal".}
Well, number one, it IS happening, whether someone personally likes it, or approves, or not. Just like the "fragging" of over 800 officers happened, in Viet Nam. {I think that was atrocious. But it DID happen! We can't close our eyes to it! Whether we approve or not!}{I HOPE, the FEW instances of fragging in this war, remain just a FEW!}

Number two, I think, no I KNOW, that it will GIVE TROOPS THE WILL TO RESIST ILLEGAL ORDERS, if they KNOW that the folks at home support them 101% in that!
Illegal orders, for example, ACCORDING TO THE ARMY'S OWN UNIFORM CODE OF MILITARY JUSTICE {which I have read}, WOULD INCLUDE PARTICIPATION IN TORTURE, AND IN MURDERING CIVILIANS AND TAKING THEIR PROPERTY.
These are PUNISHABLE OFFENCES and soldiers can be PROSECUTED for them. "I was only following orders" is NOT a defence! A SOLDIER HAS THE OBLIGATION TO NOT FOLLOW ILLEGAL ORDERS.
According to treaties the U.S. has signed, which ACCORDING TO THE CONSTITUTION ARE THE LAW OF THE LAND, and the Geneva Conventions, THE ENTIRE IRAQ WAR IS AN ILLEGAL WAR. This was the DEFENCE that Lt. Watada tried to bring to his trial {postponed}. His defence for not deploying with his company for Iraq.

Therefore, I PERSONALLY STATE, that I am FOR THE SOLDIERS NOT OBEYING THEIR ILLEGAL ORDERS whether BEFORE, or AFTER, deployment to Iraq.

It would have been better, if Lt. Watada's entire COMPANY had refused to go to Iraq; as someone who deserts his or her company, is perceived by many as a traitor. Altho MANY INDIVIDUAL SOLDIERS have expressed SUPPORT for Lt. Watada -- and several of my friends are active in his support -- it is when entire UNITS refuse, that THERE CAN BE A REAL TURNAROUND.

THIS IS WHAT DID HAPPEN DURING THE VIET NAM WAR. There was a famous instance, when LIVE ON NATIONAL TV, an entire COMPANY REFUSED to go on patrol into a danger zone! HOW EMBARASSING FOR THE ARMY BRASS -- who had probably ORDERED them to go in the first place, to GRANDSTAND FOR TV!!!!!!! I sortof remember the FUROR that caused at the time! and the lift it gave to the anti-war movement I was then a part of!
This was just one of many instances of Combat Refusal by entire units in Viet Nam.
There was even a group of B-52 Bomber Pilots, who refused for "reasons of conscience" to go on missions to bomb Cambodia; and were prosecuted by the Military.
There were other units about which there is just "hearsay" -- what the troops widely reported when they got home.
There is a book about this, written by a General, deploring this, which I could refer to if asked.

So, anyone asks my opinion, you got it. I think there could and should be a DYNAMIC set up, between the troops, and the extended Peace Movement. In SPITE of military censorship, people, families, WILL find means to communicate!
WE support the troops, and EXPLODE the LIE that they are "Protecting" us, or "protecting" anything but Bush's oil! So they don't feel uncomfortable "sitting down".
THEY support US, {and our Economic Survival!} by not dragging on this war any further!
I think, under such circumstances, the war COULD end on the TROOPS' TIMETABLE; rather than on Bush's NON-EXISTENT "timetable"! Bush keeps EXTENDING AND EXTENDING THE WAR AND THE TROOPS' DEPLOYMENTS; he is simply LYING about any troop pullout, EVER EVER EVER. And the troops should KNOW this, by now!!!
THE TROOPS WILL ONLY COME HOME, AT ALL, EVER, NOT IN BODY BAGS, IF THEY TAKE MATTERS INTO THEIR OWN HANDS.
And to finish, as Patrick Henry said to the Virginia Burgesses {before the American Revolution}: "If this be TREASON, then MAKE THE MOST OF IT."

This is what I truly think, and will stand behind it till I die.

Reports from Russian Military Analysts are describing what they term as a "rapidly declining will-to-fight” among American Soldiers fighting in Iraq, with the greatest concern being placed upon US Soldiers from the 10th Mountain Division who reportedly this past week refused orders to ‘take to field’ against their Iraqi insurgent enemies.
=============================================

During the Viet Nam War, a contingent of troops SAT DOWN ON THE BATTLEFIELD and REFUSED TO FIGHT.

In a famous incident, a group of soldiers ordered on a dangerous patrol, REFUSED TO GO, RIGHT WHILE BEING FILMED BY TELEVISON CAMERAS!

I have both these references bookmarked, and can bring them up.

[Even ALEXANDER THE GREAT'S Macedonian troops, refused to let him cross the Hyphasis River, and conquer the rest of India, when they had been deployed away from their homes and families for too long!]

Events are moving much faster than we realize.

I doubt very much that the troops want "more support" from more troops. I think that is JUST THE SPIN THE PENTAGON IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO PUT ON THE INCIDENT.

I don't doubt for a SECOND that the report is TRUE; or, that this is PRECISELY THE REASON THE PENTAGON WANTS TO CLAMP DOWN ON ALL INTERNET COMMUNICATION.

The Pentagon DOES NOT WANT THE PUBLIC TO KNOW OF THIS. Just as they try to keep the many attacks on, and deaths in, the supposedly-safe "Green Zone", HIDDEN from us.

These troops do NOT want "more & more troops" sent into the MEAT-GRINDER they are in. THESE TROOPS WANT TO COME HOME.

We the civilians, the families and friends of the troops, MUST NOW MORE THAN EVER, SHOW OUR SUPPORT FOR THEIR "SIT-DOWN STRIKE" AND TELL THE ARMY, THE CONGRESS, AND THE NEWSPAPERS, THAT WE SUPPORT THEM UNEQUIVOCALLY AND WANT THEM HOME. WANT THEM HOME NOW!

[If news of this were to spread thru Internet communication within the army, it could, and would, SPREAD LIKE WILDFIRE. THEY ALL FEEL THIS WAY. It would take just a spark.....Anyone who knows any troops, please tell them.....this encouraging news.......]

They may be coming home SOON on THEIR OWN timetable, NOT on Bush's "timetable".....

PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW, ON AND OFF OF CARE2 AND THE INTERNET, ABOUT THIS INCIDENT; AND ESPECIALLY, PLEASE TELL ANY TROOPS AND ANY FAMILY OF TROOPS, THAT YOU KNOW.
COUNTERACT THE PENTAGON'S ATTEMPT TO SUPPRESS THIS NEWS ON THE INTERNET, AND TO KEEP IT FROM REACHING ALL THE TROOPS IN THE ARMY.
The troops clearly want to come home; Iraqis want them out of their country, where they did not invite them in, in the first place.

BRING THEM HOME ON THE TROOPS' TIMETABLE; NOT BUSH'S TIMETABLE!

Let's give all Mothers all over the world - particularly Mothers of U.S. and allied troops, and especially all Iraqi Mothers - a great big Mothers Day present.

BRING THE TROOPS HOME FROM IRAQ!!!

We have all petitioned, sent letters and e-mails, demonstrated -- even and especially, people outside of the U.S. THANK YOU! And KEEP DOING IT!

However, that has proved to be NOT ENOUGH.

Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, in a TV interview the other day, indicated that THE WAR COULD GO ON FOREVER; THE ILLEGAL AND IMMORAL OCCUPATION OF IRAQ, IS INTENDED TO LAST FOREVER. No matter HOW the mis-Adminstration hems and haws and dances around the subject, THAT IS WHAT THEY REALLY, IN THE END, MEAN -- even if they can't SAY that, directly.
The mis-Administration will actually, keep on EXTENDING, and EXTENDING, and EXTENDING troops' deployments -- for the foreseeable future, for our LIFETIMES if they steal another Election and get re-elected by fair means or foul!!!

Congress says they are doing their best! Congress was elected in 2006 with a CLEAR MANDATE TO STOP THE WAR. Evidently they can't or won't TRY hard enough; or their hands are tied. AND THIS COUNTRY IS NO LONGER A DEMOCRACY REFLECTING THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE.

Shall we sit on our backsides? wait and "hope for the best"? Hope hope hope hope hope????? Shall we wait for the next election? and the next? and the next? and the......?

There are
TWO THINGS WE CAN ALL, EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US, DO NOW THIS MOTHERS DAY TO BRING THE TROOPS HOME, HOME TO THEIR MOTHERS AND FAMILIES, HOME TO PEACE WHILE THEY ARE STILL ALIVE AND UN-MAIMED.

YES, WE CAN END THE WAR ON OUR TIMETABLE, NOT ON BUSH'S PHONEY "TIMETABLE"! SI SE PUEDES! YES WE CAN!!!!!

The two things are:
1] The troops must THEMSELVES REFUSE to fight in this war any longer. There have been NOTABLE INDIVIDUALS who have done this: to mention only ONE, Lt. Ehren Watada, who deserves all of our support for his trial and court-martial hearing in a few weeks.
But, that has not been enough. WHOLE UNITS must revolt, disobey direct orders, lay down their weapons, REFUSE TO DEPLOY TO IRAQ. There is NO glory, NO Honor for being DUPES of Media LYING! And we the Civilians, communities and friends and family members, MUST SHOW VERY AUDIBLY AND VISIBLY, OUR UNQUALIFIED SUPPORT FOR THEIR REFUSAL.

2] First that CRIMINAL MASTER-MIND, DICK CHENEY, MUST BE IMPEACHED: THEN BUSH MUST BE IMPEACHED ALSO. THAT will bring the War and Occupation to a screeching halt, if and when Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Speaker of the House of Representatives and next in line, becomes THE FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. {Speaker Pelosi is not very big on Impeachment NOW; but she wouldn't turn down the Presidency if it was offered her!}

Below, there is a "DO-IT-YOURSELF" Impeachment Kit, for Americans.
GO, AMERICANS, GO!!! What have you to lose, "You have nothing to lose but your chains"!

What can a non-American citizen do? Well, plenty.
HELP US, PLEASE!

If there are American bases and Embassies in your country, PROTEST AT THEM. And ask that the American bases be CLOSED, THROWN OUT.
 As the People are protesting now in Vicenza, Italy. Did you know, that America has MORE FOREIGN BASES THAN FOREIGN EMBASSIES ABROAD??? Seven hundred and something. DISGUSTING! And, Americans are BUILDING SEVERAL PERMANENT BASES IN IRAQ. Gives the LIE, doesn't it, to "We are going to leave sometime.......... whenever........."!!!

If there are American bases in your country, and there probably are, TRY TO GET IN CONTACT WITH AMERICAN SOLDIERS WHEN THEY LEAVE THE BASE. Are there G.I. coffeeshops, or social events to which American troops would come? Can you arrange for any? LEAFLET, or put up POSTERS or GRAFFITI. {Legally, or ILLEGALLY, as I and my friends do here!} Talk face-to-face with the troops if you possibly can, or thru the Internet, in demos, broadcasts, etc. etc.

THERE IS ALREADY A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF RESISTANCE WITHIN THE AMERICAN ARMY, AS THERE WAS DURING THE VIET NAM WAR. I CAN PERSONALLY VOUCH FOR THAT {but I am not going to give anything away! But some of my sources are Public ones, such as War Cry newspaper [Grito de Guerra], Vietnam Veterans Against the War Anti-Imperialist [VVAWAI], and Iraq Veterans Against the War}. But there is a CURTAIN OF MILITARY CENSORSHIP that will have to be breached!

We, you and I, need to BUILD ON THE RESISTANCE THAT IS ALREADY THERE, AND ENCOURAGE IT, AND SUPPORT IT IN EVERY WAY POSSIBLE.

[Of course, the FAMILIES AND FRIENDS of the troops, are BEST placed to BREACH THAT MILITARY CENSORSHIP. So, if one is in a position to TALK TO FAMILY MEMBERS AND FRIENDS of the troops......]

[All of the above goes of course for British, Canadian, any other troops deployed to Iraq as well.]

THESE ARE ACTIONS THAT EVERY RECIPIENT OF THIS MOTHERS DAY MESSAGE, CAN START TO TAKE.
AND PASS ON, AND INFLUENCE OTHERS TO TAKE. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU. THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD ARE COUNTING ON YOU.
PLEASE!

I HAVE BEEN CALLED A TRAITOR, SUBVERSIVE, AND WORSE.
WELL, IN THE WORDS OF THAT GREAT AMERICAN PATRIOT, PATRICK HENRY:

"IF THIS BE TREASON,
MAKE THE MOST OF IT!"

Love & Peace & all that good stuff;
BMutiny you know what it means by now T

HOUSE RESOLUTION 4232 {End the War in Iraq Act of 2005}will PROHIBIT FURTHER USE OF DEFENSE DEPARTMENT FUNDS TO DEPLOY US TROOPS TO IRAQ, while allowing for funds to be used to pay for the safe and orderly withdrawal of existing troops. {NO PROBLEM: as the Iraq Insurgency has OFFERED A CEASE-FIRE ON OUR TROOPS, IF WE WITHDRAW. THEY ARE NOT GOING TO MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT FOR US!!! This is one of those things you NEVER hear about it our Kept Press!!!}{The bill also allows for non-defense funding to carry out reconstruction in Iraq -- I certainly hope for money to be given to the Iraqis themselves, and NOT to the totally corrupt war-profiteering "contractors" that have amassed huge amounts of money so far, and not actually done any reconstruction!}

Rep. Jim McGovern, D-MA, introduced this legislation to cut off funding. McGovern and several Congressional supporters of his bill are currently working to bring it to a floor vote when the 110th Congress convenes in January. So far, 19 House members have co-sponsored H.R. 4232. Go look them up on a Congressional website, to see if YOUR Congressperson is among them.

WHAT WE CAN ALL DO, IS WRITE, PHONE, FAX, LOBBY, AND E-MAIL IN FAVOR OF H.R. 4232, TO CUT OFF ALL FUNDING FOR THE WAR. And demonstrate, wear buttons, talk it up, etc., of course.

I recommend sending a POSTCARD to your Congressional Representative. They are cheap, and more noticed than e-mails are. Yes, you can SEND ONE EVERY WEEK -- that's what I do! Or if that's too much, then telephone every week. Whether your Congressperson is a sponsor of the bill or not -- mine, fortunately, is -- but, considering the odds against them, they will need ENCOURAGEMENT, backbone!!!

Representative XYZ

U.S. House of Representatives

Washington D.C. 20515

Also it wouldn't hurt:

Senator XYZ

U.S. Senate

Washington D.C. 20510

Or, again, you can look up their OFFICE ADDRESSES {and phone numbers} on their websites that most of them have.

Don't forget also to write your local media! Even if it doesn't get published, somebody in the office reads the mail -- and most keep a tally as to how many communications they get on a subject.

WE MUST NOT EVER ALLOW FOR ONE MOMENT, CONGRESS AND THE MEDIA AND THE PUBLIC, TO FORGET THAT THIS ELECTION WAS CLEARLY A MANDATE TO END THE WAR NOW!!! Not at Bush's or somebody's choice. NOW!!!!!!!!

If you know anyone in the Military, tell them NOT TO DEPLOY -- that you will SUPPORT THEM IN THIS DECISION, UNEQUIVOCALLY. {I write this in graffitti -- ssssh! don't tell anybody!}

If you are not an American citizen, PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO ANY AMERICANS YOU KNOW BOTH ON AND OFF THE INTERNET -- to SUPPORT HR 4232 TO CUT OFF ALL FUNDING FOR THE WAR. You KNOW this money is NOT GOING TO THE TROOPS -- TO PROTECT THE TROOPS -- BUT ONLY TO WAR PROFITEERS. This is KNOWN.

Please ASK YOUR OWN GOVERNMENTS TO WITHDRAW FROM THE WAR AND NEVER ALLY THEMSELVES WITH THE U.S. IN IMPERIALIST ADVENTURES AGAIN, EVER.

And it doesn't hurt to write to the American media, on and off the Internet, either. Or to OFFER TO GIVE SANCTUARY TO DESERTING AMERICAN TROOPS, OR TO DESERTING TROOPS FROM YOUR OWN COUNTRY.
Let us make this year THE YEAR THAT THE TROOPS COME HOME FROM IRAQ AND END THE OCCUPATION. It will be an uphill fight, all the way. Congress will try its darndest, to IGNORE the clear mandate they have been given! But, HR 4232 gives us a TOOL we can USE as an opening!!! Let us keep up the GROUNDSWELL of opposition that this election showed the existence of!!!
B Mutiny T {and I do mean Mutiny!}
