I posted this comment at Slate.com
Americans need to examine what they think is the mission of the United
States in the world. If they look, they will find embedded in the culture
since 1776 the notion that America's historic mission is to liberate
people from tyrannies by force of arms. Their sacrifice has made
the world less peaceful, not more peaceful and themselves less safe,
not more safe, less free, not more free. The sacrifice Americans have
made has provided warmongers and profiteers with a blank cheque to indulge
Napoleonic megalomania. The sacrifice in blood and treasure that Americans
have made however great is puny compared to what this
has cost and is still costing everyone else. The time is long past due
for this to stop. Empire is no way to improve the world. Criminal war
is beneath Americans and what America means.
I wonder what the "patriots" will say?

P.S.: The British Empire
Up, You Lefties!
There is even more reason
to be optimistic. Let's not forget the Iraqis. They are on the front line
against the Empire and are currently suffering under its lash. Throughout
the War in Viet Nam, the Empire had to worry about the army of North Viet
Nam, which was a mighty force, the Soviet Union which was a superpower
and supported the Hanoi regime, the Chinese who might enter the war as
they did in Korea, dense jungle and mountains to hide the enemy and thwart
heavy armour and air power, a commie-pinko fifth column at home stabbing
the Empire in the back, and the propaganda machine which had turned against
the Empire. The Empire lost. It cut and ran. But today none of those things
is true. The Iraqis have no army, no mountains, no jungle, no superpower
backing, no fifth column. The Empire has total control of the propaganda
machine. Yet the Empire is losing now and it will lose in the end. Even
if imperial storm troopers kill every Iraqi, the Empire will lose. They
will lose especially badly if they kill every Iraqi. So the chimp Emperor
can swagger and gloat today over his "mandate" (which he probably
stole) but he can't change a thing. He is a loser, and he always was a
loser. And a wimp and a chimp.
enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop
thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither

Today, November 2, 2004, Americans go to the polls to fight yet another
Civil War a major battle is fought every four years.
They won't use bullets and bombs. (They use those on other people, these
days.) Americans will use ballots. But Americans are engaged in a war,
nevertheless. It is a war fought 365 days a year, twenty-four-seven. And
now, election day itself is expanding beyond the day designated for the
battle royale, with people lined up for hours to vote in advance polls,
days before. The war now spills over the borders of the United States
itself, as absentee voters cast their ballots. Tens of thousands will
be involved today to "get out the vote" and to see that votes
are cast according to the rules. But amazingly enough, and despite all
this effort, few Americans are aware that, whoever wins, the President
and Congress are unlikely to represent them. Unless they have Paid
to Play , like Lockheed Martin, Haliburton, and the all-powerful
Zionist lobby. At best, any ordinary American will receive for his vote
only a facsimile, a cartoon, that represents his or her interests. This
is worse than a waste of time and treasure. War is futile. War is a tragedy.
Only those whose business is War, profit from War. These are not mere
slogans. These are Truth. Let's call the whole thing off. Please let's
do secede. Let us withdraw. Let them go their way, we'll go ours. I'm
glad I am not an American on this day of their democracy. God help them.
God help us.

Though you may not be a baseball fan, I'm sure you have heard that the
Boston Red Sox broke the "Curse of the Bambino" last night in
St. Louis. You may have watched the series live on Fox TV. For my money
the United States is well represented by baseball. Although bench clearing
brawls do break out periodically, these are generally speaking mere ritualistic
affairs. Importantly, the fans by and large are distinguished by not
being angry. Baseball fans are happy people: even when
old curses are being broken and new ones are being cast. Take a look around
next time you go to a football game, or a hockey game. You will see anger,
sometimes you will see hate. I was genuinely happy the Red Sox won
not that I have anything against the St. Louis Cardinals, or the New York
Yankees. They are fine people too. The movie makers got it right in "Field
of Dreams". Baseball is America. The stuff we see going on today
is not. Americans should stick to what they do best and leave evil-doing
to someone else. Don't go shopping. Go to a ball game.
Love to you,

Can we agree on something, you ask? You bet we can.
I agree that 1,000 U.S.
servicemen and women have died in vain, so far, along with tens of thousands
of Iraqis plus countless more who have been maimed for life. They
died to destroy Iraq. They died to make the world far less safe that it
was before. They died to turn me one of the biggest cheerleaders
the United States had into one of its strident critics. They died
to confirm the opinion of six billion people that the United States is
a menace to be feared. They died to restart the arms race as the weak
seek nukes as their only defence against this monster. They did not die
for any good purpose. They died in vain and the people responsible should
pay with their heads.
Why did the United States invade Iraq? To secure the Zionist state and
advance its hegemony in the region? To secure oil supplies for the U.S.?
To further advance the American Empire? To provide a raison d'être
for the military-industrial complex? To further plunder the U.S. taxpayer?
To secure the re-election of George W. Bush by securing the support of
Christian Zionists, warmongers like Zell Miller, and frightened sheeples
who vote for someone who promises to protect them? To increase the domestic
power, scope, and reach of the U.S. government? For Haliburton and Big
Oil? For all of the above? AND MORE?
My only disagreement with Ivan Eland is that he seems to think that if
a reason to go to war doesn't make any sense, then it could not have been
the reason. Oh? Is that because the neo-cons, like Wolfowitz, are as smart
as advertised? Let's try a different assumption: they are not as smart
as advertised. In fact, we should assume they are stupid and that
they have no business messing around with the devices of power. Their
toys should be taken away from them and they should be sent to their room
without supper. They should start sleeping on the cold, hard, wet, ground
in the open air cages they built for others at Camp X-Ray in Guantanamo.
There, as convicts, they could contemplate the chopping block, while it
rains on their brainless little heads. Nighty, night, Donald. Stop whining,
Furthermore, I agree that the outrage in Iraq (and Palestine) provides
the best chance libertarians have ever had to SMASH

Here is a table showing the medal standings of each country in the Olympics
Athens 2004 Olympic Medal Standings
I watched the coverage provided by Bob Costas on NBC as well as the coverage
on the CBC. Bias? Well sure, NBC highlighted the American athletes, and
the CBC highlighted the Canadian athletes. Thats not surprising.
Both networks HEADLINED
the Chinese and Australians doing extremely well, over and over. All week,
the leader boards showed the U.S.A., China, Australia, at the top. And
where were those Russians? I suppose that now that they are no longer
evil (and cant cheat) they have slinked away into ignominy. In one
of the few times I saw any Russians (Did they not even send a team, I
wondered?), I remember a long close-up of a Russian girl with tears running
down her face after her volleyball team lost to China. Those poor Russians.
It was heart wrenching. But wait! What's this? Oh, it's the media.
Those -deleted expletives- !! The Russians only disappeared on TV! Here
is what really happened: the Russians came in second (91 medals); they
didnt disappear at all. And if you add in Belarus and Ukraine, which
were part of the Evil Empire, they got 129 medals. If you were to include
Kazakhstan, you could add another 5 medals. The U.S.A. didn't win everything
(103) after all. But journalists part of the real Evil
Empire made it look as if they did!! What about Gold? Thats
what really matters, isnt it? Russia 27; Former Evil Empire 40;
U.S.A. 35; China 32; Australia 17... The lying whores!
- Morley Evans: 29 August 2004
P.S.: NBC managed to
insert an hour between the last event and the closing ceremony to remind
viewers that the Nazis were the worst people in history and that the United
States had saved Greece from them. NBC also featured a Russian athlete
who has moved to the United States. She told viewers, in Russian with
a voice-over, that she was glad to be free.
NORAD? Ah, yes, NORAD.
As far as I know, the radar bases located in the far north were staffed
by Canadians, but I would have to look into that. In any case, they were
all shut down years ago, and replaced, I suppose, with spy satellites:
In your face, from outer space! The Canadian armed forces
have been dwindling away since the World War II extravaganza. They were
starved by socialists who spent the cash to subvert the country
with welfare and similar nefarious schemes. One rarely sees any evidence
of any military of any sort in Canada. The media rarely report on Canadian
peace keepers who have been stationed hither and yon for fifty
years by those same socialists who refused to buy bullets for Canadian
soldiers to load into their 1914 Mk I Lee-Enfield rifles. But surely things
were the same south of the border, were they not?
We know from history and From Here to Eternity that the
United States disarmed after World War I. After all, those battleships
of the Pacific fleet that were destroyed at Pearl Harbour were obsolete.
And we know from history and from Sergeant York that the
United States had only reluctantly entered The Great War. (If you cant
trust Burt Lancaster and Gary Cooper, then, who can you trust?) We know
from history and from all those obsolete airplanes in the California desert
that the United States disarmed after WW II. We can see disarmament in
the federal budgets of the United States: Ive looked at them myself.
General Douglas MacArthur had a tough time in Korea until his forces were
rearmed to meet the new Communist threat which was packing heat from the
Soviet Union. And we know the United States was in the process of disarming
after the Cold War. Mike Wallace and others told us so on 60 Minutes.
We know it was true because the United States was
defenceless on September 11, 2001. George W. Bush
had just finished telling us, Im a lover, not a fighter.
It was on TV.
NORAD, which had kept Canada and the United States safe throughout the
Cold War, had failed to detect the highjackings of four airliners by the
heretofore undetected Al Qaeda. The U.S.A.F. had no way to respond. We
know how short-handed the United States was when pilots from Germany and
Britain had to be seconded during the crisis to help the short-handed
folks at NORAD continue patrolling the skys to keep us safe. Deep in the
bowels of Cheyenne Mountain, the nerve centre of NORAD and the Strategic
Air Command (SAC), they could but wring their hands and watch the Big
Board helpless today, but steeled to fight another day. The perennial
underdog, goodness, would prevail nevertheless.
Did I believe that crap? Was it not true?
- Morley Evans: 27 August 2004
P.S.: With all that
where did this come?
I would like to confess that Rip
van Winkle had nothing on me. Maybe I'll win an award, or something.
A few weeks ago, I jotted down a few thoughts about my
favourite uncle, Sam. Meanwhile, others have been waking up to the
"emerging" American empire. Emerging? Emerging??
Returning to me, some Canadians must in fact be the stupidest people on
the planet, actually leading their American cousins by a wide margin.
And beating out the Americans at the Olympic Games of Stupidity is no
small achievement. But as someone with accurate solutions to complex
problems I do have an explanation: Canada is the only place on the
planet that does not have even one U.S. military base! Americans know
they have a military; they have lots of bases all over the place. Canada
doesn't have one U.S. base, at least I don't know of one. Maybe I'm about
to be surprised again! Compared to this, it looks as if the U.S.S.R. was
the underdog all along:
- Morley Evans: August 26, 2004
P.S.: It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that
our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially
induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda
I, for one, agree with you whole-heartedly. It is time to rethink the
United State, as some
are fond of calling it. Here are thoughts I sent to them this morning,
slightly edited after further thought this afternoon:
Now, I liked the Gipper and I bought into his Presidency, at the time.
Today, I have acquired a higher opinion than I once held of the peanut
man who preceded the great communicator. Here in the land up north,
cable TV and CNN means one cannot escape the spectacle of the American
Empire (and its non-stop electioneering). When family members are caught
up in parades, sombre music, snappy uniforms and the rituals of death,
one gets more than enough. The funeral of Ronald Reagan may have actually
surpassed the extravaganza put together by enthusiasts for the British
Empire who commemorated with their own parade and celebration Queen
Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897. (It was more for their benefit than
hers, you know, just as this was more for the benefit of the current
President than for the one who passed away.)
People do need something to believe in: Women wept when Uncle
Joe died; thousands lined up for decades every morning to see the
figure whatever it is lying in Lenin's tomb. (I did that
myself one chilly October morning in 1970 to see for myself what it
was all about). People immediately turned Diana, the Princess of Wales,
after she died into something she never was when she lived. Some Americans
yearn for royalty and some Americans yearn to give it to them. I like
Elizabeth, myself: she has good manners; she seems genuinely concerned
about the wellbeing of her subjects; she doesn't pester anyone; she
passes no laws; and she levies no taxes. She makes no war. The Queen
is worth every penny Canadians don't have to pay for her keep. Zero!
What a bargain! It's those other people, those power grubbing politicians
in parliaments everywhere, who actually do those hateful things. I have
a great deal of trouble with them.
The Queen is good to the extent that she has no power. God save the Queen.
The Queen has no power because the rabble has it, that's us!(Actually,
it's a few plutocrats who claim they represent the rabble. So nothing
has changed in thousands of years.) They abuse the power they have seized
every bit as much as any despot. Yertle
the Turtle sums up the problem and the solution: the ruled must withdraw
their consent. The people fighting for freedom today our freedom
are the Iraqis. We should thank them for their sacrifice.

The 50th Anniversary Edition of Alfred M. Lilienthal's ground-breaking
Price Israel? is now available. This is my review:
Plunged once more into dangerous waters are we. The ominous warning
What Price Israel? penned fifty years ago
by Dr. Alfred M. Lilienthal rings clearer and louder with each passing
day. Read the news.
The insanity that gripped mankind throughout the twentieth century haunts
us still: It is as if the Nazis had won.
Hitler didn't win, but his partners in race relations, the Zionists,
have, today, come very close! Will they win? It's up to you.
Identifying Zionism as a doomsday cult of racist paranoiacs, it is no
wonder What Price Israel? was along with Lilienthal
himself quietly buried alive with the truth all these years.
Fifty years ago the signs were clear enough, but nobody was listening
and Zionists adroitly connived their way past "world opinion"
and around people who then had real power, Jew and Gentile alike. They
could not be stopped. Opponents were silenced, intimidated, and assassinated!
I was unaware of these issues until very recently. I had easily accepted
the standard Zionist line we have all been fed for fifty years. "Why
won't those stupid A-rabs make peace?" I wondered when I watched
the TV News. Yet in spite of all, eventually the truth began to leak
out through cracks in our propaganda wall. One night in October 2000,
I watched Ariel Sharon swagger through Al-Harim Al-Sharif (the "Temple
Mount") accompanied by 1500 armed Israeli bullyboys, er, policemen.
Sharon was spoiling for a fight, that was clear. I began to watch the
news from then on with a different eye. Not long after that, I watched
Sharon's army invade The West Bank. I was stunned. I gasped, "These
people don't want peace; they want war!" I researched the Middle
East at the library and on the Internet. After deciding who the good
guys really are (overcoming fifty years of brain washing was not easy),
I believed the new U.S. President, George W. Bush, would surely bring
some justice to the Middle East after all these years. I would have
voted for Bush myself. He was a compassionate conservative, he had told
everyone, who "would leave no child behind." Remember? Alas,
Bush and his crew had lied themselves into office in November 2000.
Then one evening, I watched in horror as Sharon and Bush climbed into
bed with each other, right there on the TV News! Talk about pornography,
and during prime time when children were watching! I was disgusted!
I stopped watching TV News that night.
Brrr . . .
I discovered Dr. Lilienthal in an obsure place, not in a palace of learning.
"Who is this guy and what could be wrong with him that he should
be here?" I wondered. I began to read his books and the materials
on his website.
Dr. Lilienthal was either not in the libraries I checked, or his works
were categorized as "controversial literature" where he could
be found. On the Internet, booksellers listed him as being "out
of print". I never saw Dr. Lilienthal on "Larry King Live"
or on "60 Minutes" either.
I read what I could
Israel? I wonder now
what other things we know nothing about. Do you realize people outside
Anglo North America think we are terribly ignorant here? They may be
right. Happily, the 50th Anniversary Edition of What
Price Israel? is now available. It came almost in time for Dr.
Lilienthal's 90th birthday, which was Christmas Day! With this wonderful
book he has given us all a present. Buy a copy and open your eyes, and
your heart! You can save the world. Do it.
Please invite your viewers
to take a look at Dr. Lilienthal's book. You can save the world.

In these troubled times
some of us remember how things used to be in Mayberry, NC. Below is something
I wrote to a friend this morning and I thought of you:
Yes we do have the sheriff in Canada, although he plays a much smaller
role in our criminal justice system than, say, Sherman
Block did for decades as the Sheriff of The County of Los Angeles.
You would need to ask a lawyer what a sheriff does in Canada. Is your
sister not a lawyer? Ask her when you see her next week. You are correct:
Mayberry didn't have much prostitution, crack cocaine addiction, assault
and battery, murder, or many lawsuits. And Andy
Griffith was the sheriff. He wasn't involved in too many "fire
fights" as I recall. Does violence create violence? The police
force of London (by far the world's largest city at the time) was reorganized
Robert Peel in 1829. "Peelers" also known as "Bobbies"
were famous for being unarmed. Today's paramilitary police are modelled
on the S.W.A.T. squads (Special Weapons and Tactics) of Darrel Gates
who was the City of Los Angeles Chief of Police. We must ask, how useful
is violence in creating a civil society? Not very: Take a look at Iraq.
In Mayberry only deputy
Barney Fife ever took his pistol from its holster, and I don't think
he ever shot anyone. Was Mayberry peaceful because the police were peaceful,
or were the police peaceful because Mayberry was peaceful? This question
was answered two thousand years ago by the man whose crucifixion and
resurrection Christians celebrate at Easter. It was His central point,
it seems to me. Happy Easter!

As a privileged member of the Democratic Party now, I get all their daily
propaganda. This is amazing since I'm not even a U.S. citizen and don't
even live there. That's democracy and why they are the Democratic Party!
Of course the Republican Party is just as democratic. If I were to send
a nice letter to little George, they would also send me their propaganda.
They would even propagandize Mullah Omar if he were to drop them a line.
Ah, democracy . . . And freedom isn't free, as they are fond of reminding
us. We have to pay them to make us free. Below you will see just how free
people want to be. Just imagine, over 50 million U.S. greenback dollars
[raised by the Democratic Party]! Of course I couldn't help them out,
having already sent my 25 bucks to you. Don't forget to use my cash for
good purposes. Hit 'em where it hurts!!

Question We Should Be Asking
Yep, you got it: the United States and its "coalition" should
just leave Iraq, and Saudi Arabia, and Europe, and Britain, and Japan,
and central Asia, and South America, and all the other places where it
has stationed its military. JUST GO HOME. Thank you. Goodbye.
Remember that wonderful time honoured phrase from the fifties? "Yankee
The Question We Should Be Asking is why this isn't going to happen if
little George is re-elected, or if John Kerry is elected. Why? Because
the military industrial complex (greatly enlarged since the 1950s) would
simply have to find something else to do. The so-called religious right
would have to give up its heresy. The so-called state of "Israel"
would have to get along without its multi-billion dollar subsidies. Zionists
would have to give up their own heresy and join the human race.
Oh, but you say they like things just they way they are? Well, I guess
that answers the question. We have war because these guys like war. It's
their business. Forget about Osama and murky plots. They are not the reason
for any of this. They are the excuse for it.
I'd vote for Al Sharpton, or Oprah, myself.

RE: Pentagon event,
11 September 2001
Why not place a shaped
charge on the inside of the outer wall? The blast could be aimed toward
the interior of the building in any direction desired. A very small amount
of the blast would blow a hole in the outer wall. This would be supposed
to have been the point of entry of a projectile. Since the area where
the explosion occured was being renovated, workmen would come and go without
raising any suspicion in ordinary Pentagon staff and security. Items could
have been scattered about that would imply an aircraft strike had caused
the explosion. The charge could have been detonated remotely by the Honourable
Donald Rumsfeld himself. No fancy flying, no high tech gizmos, no rush,
no problem. Initially a truck bomb was reported, then it became a Boeing
757 of which the name of the suicide pilot was released. How could anyone
know that? We are under attack. By whom?
- Morley Evans, 21 March
Meaning of Madrid
The meaning of Madrid
is quite clear: When something blows up, all parties can blame their favourite
bogeyman. No evidence is actually required although something can be "discovered"
or made up later. Minutes after the explosions in Madrid
we were told it was Basque separatists; then the Spanish conservatives
blamed the Spanish socialists after the conservatives lost the election
they were sure to win before the explosions. The other day my own favourite
bogeyman, Dick Cheney (what a dick!), emerged from his undisclosed secure
location (Is that like a "spider hole," Dick?) to tell us all
that Al Qaeda did it to punish Spain for its participation in the "U.S.
led coalition" which is bringing democracy and freedom to the suffering
Iraqi people. So you see, everyone can make up his own reality. Bin Laudin
could have taken credit, if there actually was such a person. You say
he did take credit? Really? It's an easy game. Anyone can play. Is this
a movement spreading democracy? All you have to do is plant a few bombs,
blow up some people, and blame it on anyone you like. The explosion is
the only reality. Everything else can be made up out of whole cloth. And
of course "the people" need the "protection" of people
like Dick. That is the whole point and the real meaning of Madrid. It
has no other meaning.
Have a nice day.

Stop and think:
Does anyone still believe there is a bin Laden? Maybe there never was
a bin Laden. Could it have all been a pack of lies right from the start?
We could go back farther than 1991 -- we could go back, waay back -- but
1991 will do for current purposes. Who has benefitted from the events
known today as "9/11"? Bin Laden? Saddam? Mullah Omar? Arafat?
Who was out of business when the USSR evaporated? Who is being grotesquely
enriched by the war on terror? Should we fear the flying wing stealth
bomber from Northrop Grumman, or the shoe bomber? Who spies on everyone?
Who forces innocent people to pay for their adventures through their "voluntary"
tax system? The Saudis? Quadaffi? Who is the puffed up snot nose who lives

Well, I know I'll be
sleeping better this Christmas, safe and sound in my own warm bed. Sure,
it took over two years and billions of dollars with lots of death and
destruction -- including 9/11 -- but Marshal Dubya and the posse have
now made the world safe for democracy. I bet you folks in the ditch
will be sleeping better too, now that the Iraqis can enjoy their freedom
and start up their own Rotary clubs, instead of attacking America. But,
do you think they really have Saddam? Could it be one of Saddam's many
doubles? Dubya could be faced with a situation just like "Diamonds
are Forever" when 007 couldn't tell one Blofeld from the other Blofeld.
But maybe it doesn't matter, as long as voters think they have Saddam
in the hoosegow, they will think their money was well spent and that they
are safe . . . That is what really matters, isn't it? As long as voters
keep sleeping, things will be okay, right?
