A civilian dictator thrives in Pakistan – And what's the solution out of this impasse?

Are the common people condemned to the status of muted spectators and impotent commentators to the Noura 'cricket match' of the rulers enacted for their entertainment?

Many a poet-prophet-philosopher has passed this way – none explained the “how” to implement their platitudes.

One brought the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule – and we continue to suffer its deficient plenitude in phosphorous bombs upon the 'untermenschen'.

Another preached the Sublime that fills our peoples from ear to ear 24x7 – and we suffer from the surfeit of its profound absence.

Still another made the most commonsensical observation in the 16th century:

Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break in pieces.”

-- Happy-Happy Zardari: A monologue on Hope and Voluntary Servitude http://humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2008/09/happy-happy-zardari-voluntary-servitude.html

Aldous Huxley captured the impasse of its absence the best. In an interview given to Herman Harvey, in response to the 64 million dollar question: “What does one do?”, Huxley brilliantly observed:

Well this is the real problem. Nothing is easier than to formulate high ideals, but few things are more difficult than to discover the means for, by [which], those ideals might be implemented, and the categorical imperatives which spring from them can be a pain. This is the real problem. I mean one has to dream, but one has to dream in a pragmatic way to consider how... Merely preaching to people doesn't have much effect, people have been preaching for an awefully long time and we are still pretty much where we were.”

-- Sum and Substance with Aldous Huxley, KNXT Public Affairs. http://www.huxley.net/ah/huxley-interview.html

The twin to preaching platitudes is also the easiest thing to do – even as hard as that has become in an Orwellian world – to keep accurately narrating the problems to no impact. Dictatorshipwatch and Project Humanbeingsfirst appear to excel in that rigorous exercise on the treadmill. And that is just great for the hectoring hegemons – to keep narrating the achievements of their brilliant plannings and executions. They must surely replay it continually for their own hourly ecstasy trips into each others mouth. I won't be surprised if the entire DW website is prominently displayed everyday on the Accolades Section of their Wall of Conquest.

And most assuredly, just this morning, at least ten just came with sheer joy to read the unvarnished praise:

... thanks to the planners who skillfully removed Musharraf as his unpopularity was making it hard for him to follow more dictates from Washington. They wanted a new slave in the civilian garb. ... The more destabilization, the better the environment to carryout their subversive activities for pitting Shia against Sunni, army against people, people against the state and so on.” -- A civilian dictator thrives in Pakistan, February 25, 2009 7:11 AM Dictatorshipwatch.com

And we are condemned to play our assigned roles as stupid co-opted bystanders of history (?) to our own annihilation (?). There – another ecstasy trip for someone! Let's cut it off! HOW?

LaRouche: Disinformation Systems Redux or still Uber Alles?

February 21, 2009
In response to Project Humanbeingsfirst's question-mark on Mr. LaRouche's superbly narrated documentary “1932” and other profound matters of empire emanating from his pen, titled LaRouche: A nuanced and expert Disinformationist or merely Uber Alles?”, November 23, 2008, the following letter was received from a LaRouche affiliated political party worker in Australia.
The letter politely informed me: “I thought that your critique of 1932 reflected what you would personally desire your own documentary of U.S history to contain,”.
I found this so fabulously burlesque a defense argument for crafty omissions, that I imagined it being every propagandist's dream team response against any indictment on the charge of 'conspiracy to deceive through clever omissions' in every court in Wonderland. For the moment however, Alice has been wide awake for a while, hasn't partaken at the Mad Hatter's tea party, and notes:
“Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth. By simply not mentioning certain subjects... totalitarian propagandists have influenced opinion much more effectively than they could have by the most eloquent denunciations.”
That short statement of Aldous Huxley is the briefest possible, entirely self-evident, and quite complete reply to the letter. Since it was obviously not already entirely self-evident to the earnest LaRouche follower, and having nothing more exciting to do this fine Saturday morning, I thought I might as well share my two-bit profound discovery with all “followers” of any 'ubermensch': that it is perhaps better to be led to hell on one's own sense of direction, than in the footsteps of “mullahs” of any stripe who promise the ethereal panacea, heaven, nirvana, holy-maidens, and everlasting ecstasy. It has been my most disturbing discovery of adulthood that these are, almost always, manufactured in the devil's own workshop, who, for reasons altogether obvious, neglects to inform the enticed, stoned, gullible followers of that fact.
Omission is the cardinal modus operandi of the 'ubermensch'. I refuse to lay down under its knife – but others are obviously free to make their own choices in life. So here is 'to life' – which in my dream world order, is without 'ubermensch' – lachaim!
The following is the full text of the nicely written letter, followed by Project Humanbeingsfirst's longer than necessary but pertinent response:

Greetings Zahir,
I have just a brief comment to pass on to you, after reading through your critique of the 1932 Documentary produced by the LaRouchePAC.
I noted your comments about what was omitted by the producers of that documentary, and thought that I would respond.
I am a member of a political party, here in Australia, who associate and follow closely the political work and ideas of Lyndon LaRouche in the United States. I agree with his call for a New Bretton Woods economic system, which is made up of Sovereign Nation States, to rebuild the global economy. Such a policy will necessarily include fixed exchange rates, national (Government) banking and rational protectionist policies to improve national industry, agriculture and manufacturing. It is also absolutely unavoidable that in order to save the 6.7 billion people on this planetfrom a Dark Age, the huge levels of financial speculation eating up the world's credit, must not be paid, and must be written off, as soon as possible. Part of that process will require a serious reorganization in bankruptcy of the global banking system by National Governments.
I thought that your critique of 1932 reflected what you would personally desire your own documentary of U.S history to contain, with specific facts and elaborations on certain points, more so than what the LaRouchePAC research team intended to convey, as a single idea of history. The overwhelming sense that I get from the 1932 documentary, is the historic conflict in ideology between Empire and Sovereign Nation-States. I get a real sense of the conflict between unique historical personalities, that understood that they were fighting to change the population's ideology.
I would point out, that in studying many of the volumes of literature of the LaRouche movement over the years, that all of the questions and objections you raise, relating to the issue of central banking and monetary policy, have been answered and addressed rigorously. I think that the recent three public international webcasts given by LaRouche, dated January 16th 2009, January 22nd 2009, and February 11th 2009, do so in a very clear and striking way. I hope that you have been part of the many people tuning into those.
Another good reference which you may have already looked at, is the closely related LaRouchePAC documentary, titled "Firewall", which covers the subject of economic science in more depth. I thought that it ought to be obvious that when speaking about the British Empire, you naturally are pointing to the role of the Rhodes, Milners, H.G Wellses, and British East India Company types anyway. Any competent investigation of the British Empire will lead to those individuals.
Lyndon LaRouche's close associate, the late H. Graham Lowry, published a book "How The Nation Was Won", which also clarifies a lot of the early history and activity of Ben Franklin and his circle in the Massachusetts, in their fight for a Republic during the 17th Century..
Anyway, that is what I wanted to briefly say, and please don't hesitate to reply with any comments. What I have said here may be something you are already aware of.
Glen Isherwood
Melbourne, Australia
Dear Mr. Glen Isherwood,
Thank you for your comments. And greetings to you as well. I hope you will not mind if I respond rather straightforwardly and without any syntactic sugaring. I use this opportunity to flesh out more than is minimally required to respond to your letter. Unfortunately, as Mark Twain once wrote his friend, “I would have written you a much shorter letter had I more time” than this Saturday morning available to me for this idle pursuit. I say “idle”, because the matters should be wholly self-evident from that short Aldous Huxley quote in the preamble to this letter. It would be most unfortunate were it to necessitate any lengthier exposition and therefore, I hope all which follows is redundant, and hence, “idle” pursuit on my part. The Monetary Reform Bibliography – A self-study guide for uncovering the agendas behind the economics gibberish contains all that a modern man minimally needs to know about money and reform but will likely never learn in any MBA or economics Ph.D. program.
1) LaRouche's “1932” is ostensibly a documentary for the ordinary layman, not an economics expert or historian. Therefore, it would be just as silly to presume a knowledgeable audience with a priori domain specific knowledge, as to require familiarity with LaRouche's vast body of work before watching it. At least, no such presumption, or expectation, if present, is made clear in the documentary itself. It is a wholly self-contained 'NOVA' or 'PBS' level documentary.
2) As such, it crucially masks the pivotal role of private financiers within, in their deceptively having orchestrated 'money as debt' in America, leaving no clue to the audience of the financier's very existence, or the existence of even the concept of 'money as debt' in contrast to the fiat money which existed prior to the 1776 Revolution (Colonial Scrip), or the fiat money which Abraham Lincoln employed to fight the 1860's Civil War (Lincoln's Greenbacks).
3) It masks, through expert omission and deflection, the subversive role of Bank of England banksters Morris, Hamilton, et. al, in deviously instrumenting private central banking in the new nation which had, ostensibly, just thrown off the yoke of servitude to the very Bank of England.
4) It masks, through expert omission, any reference to the struggle that was waged by the founding fathers and signatories to the Declaration of Independence, such as Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, et. al., against the first Bank of the United States orchestrated by Alexander Hamilton, nor Thomas Jefferson not renewing its charter during his own presidency. It does not make a passing mention of President Andrew Jackson having “killed the bank” – in its second orchestration – either. There is little clue provided to its third calculated orchestration at Jekyll Island which constructed the Federal Reserve System, nor a passing reference made to Ben Bernanke's candid confessional to Milton Friedman in 2002 of its impact in creating the Great Depression I upon whose backs FDR built his “New Deal” and which is the culminating focus of the documentary – not even a tiny postscript that might have insightfully led into unraveling today's calamitous Great Depression II under the broad sweep of its purported continuity of a “single idea of history”:
As a personal aside, I note that I first read A Monetary History of the United States (Friedman and Schwartz, 1963) early in my graduate school years at M.I.T. I was hooked, and I have been a student of monetary economics and economic history ever since. As everyone here knows, in their Monetary History Friedman and Schwartz made the case that the economic collapse of 1929-33 was the product of the nation's monetary mechanism gone wrong. Contradicting the received wisdom at the time that they wrote, which held that money was a passive player in the events of the 1930s, Friedman and Schwartz argued that "the contraction is in fact a tragic testimonial to the importance of monetary forces [p. 300; all page references refer to Friedman and Schwartz, 1963]. ... Let me end my talk by abusing slightly my status as an official representative of the Federal Reserve. I would like to say to Milton and Anna: Regarding the Great Depression. You're right, we did it. We're very sorry. But thanks to you, we won't do it again. ( Monetary Reform: Who will bell the cat? )
5) It perpetuates, through clever commission and an engagingly compelling selective narrative, the same myth which the United States Treasury, in cahoots with the Federal Reserve System does. Namely, that of the laudatory savior role of Alexander Hamilton in the construction of the United States monetary system as a debt-economy: “The United States debt, foreign and domestic, was the price of liberty.” A gratuitous usurious debt to private banksters in America, for which, no common sense, nor moral sense, nor historical sense, can lend any justification. Most bizarre of all, 1932 goes so far as to glowingly speak of Alexander Hamilton as living on in FDR – the main tour de force of the documentary and for whom “1932” is so titled!
6) It speaks of Hamilton's assassination by Burr, but does not speak of the assassination of the United States peoples' freedom from servitude through Hamilton-Morris orchestrated debt-servitude to banksters. The very debt-servitude that has today created almost 11 trillion dollar unpayable debt, but more importantly, enslaved the public in paying the compound-interest on it.
7) With all these priceless omissions in a well manufactured documentary purporting to narrate the broad sweep of history of the continuity of struggle for freedom from the imperial motherland – and which is surely at least a tiny bit more than just a “personal desire” for its inclusion on my part which as you so absurdly put it in the best mold of Goebbells: “what you would personally desire your own documentary of U.S history to contain,” – 1932 becomes nothing more than vulgar propaganda that serves the interests of the banksters of remaining occulted from the mainstream public eye.
8) It primarily serves the purpose of hiding the enemy within – the devilish enemy who insidiously achieved the same imperial purpose of covertly controlling the colonies from within, even as they exerted to break-free of its overt chains held from overseas – while LaRouche continually focusses attention on the historical vague nemesis across the Atlantic.
9) The documentary craftily misleads and misdirects the uninformed audience who are also its primary audience. It manufactures a perception of history, through omissions, and selective story-telling, which crucially masks the role of private central banksters in hijacking America.
10) The financial history of the United States of America is so intimately tied to what has led to our present financial crisis at the hands of the bankster oligarchs, that deliberately misconstruing and masking the banksters' progressive subversion throughout American history with critical omissions in polished documentaries made for the gullible general public, is to criminally deflect attention from the enemy-within who is still perpetuating the same crimes against the nation. That enemy within is now finally ready to administer its coup de grace for its long planned new empire – the one-world government of the oligarchs – all seeded in the orchestration of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913! And not a hint of any of this in “1932”.
11) In reference to your comment: “I would point out, that in studying many of the volumes of literature of the LaRouche movement over the years, that all of the questions and objections you raise, relating to the issue of central banking and monetary policy, have been answered and addressed rigorously.”, I will only note with emphatic humility that its stark omission in 1932 leaves a gaping hole that changes the entire perspective of the audience of their not even learning about the real enemy within. As a standalone lengthy documentary which, as you assert, purportedly conveys “a single idea of history”, and which I have watched multiple times to study its sophisticated craftsmanship, 1932 is outright guilty of employing the tools of the trade of “totalitarian propagandists”.
Judging a tree by its fruit, the conclusion is inescapable. The penetrating words of Aldous Huxley capture its import so eloquently that I hope I may be forgiven for rehearsing them one more time:
“Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth. By simply not mentioning certain subjects... totalitarian propagandists have influenced opinion much more effectively than they could have by the most eloquent denunciations.”
12) If Mr. LaRouche has indeed addressed and countered the imperial sacred cow core-axioms of interest-bearing coining of “money as debt”, and the masterful control of any nation's destiny which results from Meyer Amschel Rothschild's famous insight: “Give me control of a nation's money supply, and I care not who makes its laws”, and his prescriptions today are indeed based upon abolishing money as debt and its expansion and contraction in private controlling hands, then I have surely been misled by the unrepresentative disinformation masterpiece 1932 produced by his PAC. If your tall claims are true, then commonsense dictates that Mr. LaRouche might outright disclaim any role or association with the production of 1932. That documentary is an insult to Mr. LaRouche and he must remove it from his websites and from circulation, and furthermore, take its producers and script writers to task for having done him such such egregious disservice. He may further issue a letter of apology to the world and his followers for having participated in it without having done his own due diligence of simply watching it before releasing it to the world. A letter of gratitude written by Mr. LaRouche to yours truly for discovering this fiasco and bringing it to the world's attention will be prominently displayed on Project Humanbeingsfirst's website.
13) In summation on the topic of 1932, I would only reiterate that you have stated nothing to enlighten me on the question mark that was raised in “LaRouche: A nuanced and expert Disinformationist or merely Uber Alles?. While I appreciate your mentioning his phenomenal body of literature which you claim to have studied for your own due diligence as a conscientious political follower, you did not reproduce any specific passages and quotations to rebut or clarify why 1932 should not be rejected by every intelligent person as merely a propaganda shill to cleverly deflect and mask the subversion of the banksters from within.
14) As for your endorsement of Mr. LaRouche's prescriptions: “I agree with his call for a New Bretton Woods economic system ...”, Project Humanbeingsfirst's admittedly plebeian point of view for an altogether sensible process today which can most assuredly lead to a reasonably equitable prescription that is only in the best interest of the peoples of the United States and the world, rather than in the best interests of the financial ruling elite, may be gleaned in: “Why won't President Obama's 'Stimulus' work? And what will?
Historically, Bretton Woods I only favored the rich nations of the Global North, mainly the victor of WW II, by making its currency the default reserve currency of the planet. Even a cursory examination of the import of the following George F. Kennan words from his PPS 23, uttered almost on the eve of Bretton Woods I, exposes the grotesque reality of “deal in straight power concepts” in International Relations to which, surely, Mr. LaRouche ought to be no stranger:
“We have about 50% of the world's wealth, but only 6.3% of its population .... In this situation, we cannot fail to be the object of envy and resentment. Our real task in the coming period is to devise a pattern of relationships which will permit us to maintain this position of disparity without positive detriment to our national security. To do so, we will have to dispense with all sentimentality and day-dreaming, and our attention will have to be concentrated everywhere on our immediate national objectives. We need not deceive ourselves that we can afford today the luxury of altruism and world-benefaction .... We should cease to talk about vague and - for the Far East - unreal objectives such as human rights, the raising of living standards, and democratization. The day is not far off when we are going to have to deal in straight power concepts. The less we are then hampered by idealistic slogans, the better.” (George F. Kennan, PPS 23, 1948)
15) In astutely recognizing that this unvarnished empirical reality of hegemonic “deal in straight power concepts” instead of the platitudes of Moses or the Biblical Golden Rule govern all international relations, the nations of the Global South must evolve their own solution-space for a monetary system appropriate to their developing economies and the surfeit of their populations.
The Global South must negotiate their interactions, trade, economics, political and security matters, from a position of collective strength with the power-block of the Global North whose hegemonic interests aren't going to disappear just because Mr. LaRouche is put in charge or his ideas are deployed for his “new Bretton Woods”. Mr. LaRouche obviously isn't a simpleton to Polyanishly think that he can prevail upon an entrenched power that owns trillions in wealth and assets, and which has already corrupted and co-opted all ruling elite of almost every nation on earth. Neither is he ignorant of history to not feel this powers' existential chill down his own spine – a chill which President Woodrow Wilson, after having being made a patsy into signing the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, described as:
“Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are of afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breadth when they speak in condemnation of it.”
And which Professor Carroll Quigley, President Bill Clinton's mentor, described in his seminal work “Tragedy and Hope - A History of the World in Our Time” in the following words:
“The powers of financial capitalism had (a) far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland; a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank... sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world.”
And last but not least, a chill whose Faustian ability for corrupting and coercing many an honest man into towing the masters' line was most aptly put by W. Cleon Skousen in his prescient commentary on “Tragedy and Hope”. This unvarnished honest perspective explains more today than all the scholars' pen put to the red ink that has already flown from the jugulars of the 'untermenschen' in the Middle East, and is now about to flow in the mainstreet USA:
'The real value of Tragedy and Hope ... [is the] bold and boastful admission by Dr. Quigley that there actually exists a relatively small but powerful group which has succeeded in acquiring a choke-hold on the affairs of practically the entire human race. Of course we should be quick to recognize that no small group could wield such gigantic power unless millions of people in all walks of life were “in on the take” and were willing to knuckle down to the iron-clad regimentation of the ruthless bosses behind the scenes. As we shall see, the network has succeeded in building its power structure by using tremendous quantities of money (together with the vast influence it buys) to manipulate, intimidate, or corrupt millions of men and women and their institutions on a world-wide basis.'
I hope that this long reply has been rather unnecessary. I imagine ordinary peoples in the land down under and those far away from the epicenter of empire, will always be far less dumbed down than those living within the heart of 'Rome'.
Kind Regards,
Zahir Ebrahim.

LaRouche: Disinformation Systems Redux or still Uber Alles? February 21, 2009 9/9

Letter to Editor: The interlude between puppetshows is the only reality! February 20, 2009

Letter to Editor: The interlude between puppetshows is the only reality

Zahir Ebrahim, Project Humanbeingsfirst.org

California, United States of America

February 20, 2009

Ron Suskind's commentary appearing in the Pakistani press today, February 20, 2009, is nonsense. It retains the lies within lies that the Americans are fighting a real war on terror, when all of their counter-insurgency operations – never mind their full scale military invasions based on outright lies and fabricated mantras – are designed primarily to 'tickle' those very boogieman into existence to be able to continue fighting the lifetime of World War IV. [1]

Former President, General Pervez Musharraf, as all his active duty command, military, political, and bureaucratic, past and present, have only implemented the American greater masterplan. They may not be smart enough to fully appreciate or comprehend that plan, and that much may be conceded to them, as no one would be suicidal enough to implement the baby-steps if they knew where it was going to lead. Mercenaries are never suicidal. As Henry Kissinger clearly understood: “Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.” It is easier to make patsies out of them for the overarching agenda, while using them as mercenaries for the immediate agenda. That is how compartmentalization of hierarchical agendas work.

The mantra of 'Taliban' taking over is a fabrication within a fabrication which is being brought to fruition as we speak. The Swat deal is a perfect example to illustrate this. This deal announced two days ago is a mirage. The reason it is a mirage is because the entire insurgency in Swat is itself a mirage. It is a cultivated 'tickled' insurgency by the counter-insurgency joint operations by the US-PAK militaries. That aptly descriptive word, 'tickled', is the CIA Director Michael Hayden's, not mine. [2]

One has to understand how local sensitivities, cracks and lacunae in cultures, their pre-dispositions, are harvested for one's agendas. The best example is the concept of 'jihad' that was hijacked and bastardized to fight the 9-year long Afghan war 1979-1988. In Pakistan's tribal belt, people are largely conservative, somewhat religious minded, and do have ancient tribal histories guiding their present lives. That is their right to exist whichever way they like, in no less measure, than the right of nudist colonies to exist in the West. For a long time, the people of Malakand have wanted their version of Sharia, whatever its merit, as their low key demand often put forth by their leaders - some genuinely, some politically motivated, and some outright mercenary. Well - that has been 'tickled' into full fledged existence through creating, aiding and abetting, a handful of murderous prominent patsy-mercenaries within them, and subsequently bombing the innocent people's families into the shattered state of destitution and desperation whereby, the patsy-mercenaries can now sympathetically demand whatever they have been primed to demand. In this case, the implementation of Sharia. This is a convenient boogieman, of antiquated 'Talibans' taking over, with the imminent threat of their also taking over all of Pakistan, and posing the real danger of Pakistan's nuclear weapons – which have, in any event, already been neutralized with PAL locks and fifth columnist within the system – falling into their antediluvian hands.

Just like the toppling of Sadaam Hussein's statue in Iraq was a psy-op affair, so are the banners in Swat bazaars proclaiming “no women allowed” a psy-ops being instrumented through patsy-mercenaries. Pakistani peoples, as smart as we claim we are, in our victim state, cognitively perceive only the layered 'katputli tamashas' enacted before us. Most aren't devious enough to understand the complexities to which a hegemon can go to takeover the world. Please see, as an example, the response to “Fourth Generation Warfare”: http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/02/responseto-fourth-generation-warfare.html

All Western and local fabrications that retain the core-lie, that there is a real “war on terror”, are puppetshows. In a puppetshow, yes there are heroes and villains, foils, intrigues, and sub plots, like in a soap opera. These are designed as immersive experiences such that the audience get so involved in watching and discussing the plots that they begin to perceive them as reality. In the calculus of the matrix, it is a manufactured reality. The real unvarnished reality can be gleaned, in a nutshell, in the following response to the Financial Times oped which had accurately put it all together: http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2008/12/responseto-ft-gideon-rachman-worldgov.html

That puts into full perspective this mindless rehearsal of Ron Suskind's psyop in the local Pakistani press, as in The News: “Another US writer endorses charges against Musharraf”. [3]

A moronic press unable to see past the puppetshows, or the co-opted one, will be the death of any peoples.

Response to 'Fourth generation warfare in the most advanced stage' February 17, 2009

February 17, 2009*
Over the years I have read many publicly available Pentagon documents, going all the way back to what were earlier classified and later made available either through FOIA or natural declassification cycle.
Before I make my relevant point – let me cite an example. When I learnt, from Chomsky initially, and subsequently reading the originals, of George Kennan's doctrine of outspending the Communists and that they would naturally collapse soon enough, that document is the 1948 Policy Planning PPS-23, I was taken aback. That PPS-23 had formed the underpinnings of what later became the Truman Doctrine that had held the world hostage for over 4 decades – at the brink of annihilation! Or so I, and almost everyone on planet earth have been led to believe. So we have all dutifully critiqued the “Military-Industrial Complex” of America and remained in awe of President Eisenhower's labeling of it, the very same President who also dutifully carried on the baton of the Cold War from President Truman, embarking on the largest 'peace-time' military and civil defense spending spree in the United States probably in its entire inglorious history of bloodshed up to that time. That flaming-torch of the Cold War was continually carried on by every single American President for four decades. When PPS-23 was declassified, like flies drawn to a dead carcass, the many historians and moralists of empire laughed their way to their bank rehearsing it in their narratives. Not one of them, to my knowledge, decided to donate the proceeds of their pedantic works to the poor victims of four decades of proxy-warfare against the Communists, the last one being Afghanistan.
So how does one cast that into the actual tortuous reality that Communism was created by the Anglo-American banksters themselves who also financed the “Military-Industrial complex” through deficit spending sticking the compound-interest payments on it to the American tax-payer? Going from gullibly na├»ve-green Chomsky student from the late 1970s where 'empire' was the baddy, to the eye opening research into who runs the empire through the Hegelian dialectics of opposites and fabricated enemies – something Noam Chomsky has never written about to my knowledge, but so many 'lesser' people have, including yours truly based on information uncovered through independent research – the entire PPS-23 now looks like a fabrication to direct the Pentagon's Generals against a fabricated enemy. Like Henry Kissinger had once stated, something to the effect:
“Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”
So back to 2001 - 2009. 'War on terror' is a fabrication, 911 was an inside job, and fighting the fourth generation war is the sine qua non, inter alia, for world government. These matters have been amply dwelled upon elsewhere ( see http://humanbeingsfirst.org ).
If that be the case – the article “Fourth generation warfare in the most advanced stage”** is a cleverly disguised truth within a lie! We know of lies within lies, but truth within lies has more potential to create believable absurdities. And if you can convince people of absurdities, you can also get them to commit atrocities in the name of “either you are with us or with the terrorists”.
There is today, and has been for at least a hundred plus years, only one primal common global enemy of mankind which manufactures, aids and abets, cultivates and sustains, all the local ones. The Pentagon, the White House, the Congress, all work for it. It created Pakistan through the Round Tables; it sanctioned and funded the Zionist agenda since its very inception and created Reform Judaism to bring the flock to their Promised Land by hook or by crook; it created the Bolshevik Revolution by funding the enemies of the Tzar and looting all of Russia's wealth; it funded Nazi Socialism and then funded its opponents to destroy it; and it created China's Communist Revolution by propping up an unknown Mao Tse Tung. It also moved all of America's production and industrial infrastructure to China and replaced that real wealth with its ill fated financial sector and its tortuous instruments of fictitious wealth that has now manufactured the global Financial Crisis. That enemy today, the misanthrope of all humanity, the only one that has profited from all the wars of the twentieth and this century and all the boom and bust economic cycles acquiring the deeds to almost all hard properties on the planet while growing itself into greater and greater combines with each bust, is now ready to bite the hand which has fed it.
Unless that common global enemy and its overarching agenda is kept properly in focus, reports like the above only create red herrings to distract from it.
One thing I have learnt studying the foreign policy of nations for now almost 30 years, is cynicism. Real secrets, real doctrines, and real strategies and tactics, are always kept “Top Secret”. No one in the right mind is going to reveal their secret weapons to the enemy and pending victims. There is always an agenda in all “information leaks” and purported “Pentagon's Joint Vision 2010/2020/2030” documents. The proof of that, that real secrets are always closely guarded to the chest, is that the evidence and circumstances surrounding Abraham Lincoln's assassination 150 years ago – notice we aren't taking JFK, RFK, MLK, or even 911 new pearl harbor – are still classified Top Secret!
So what they let out, in a convoluted way that simple minds like ours un-attuned to the complexities of Machiavelli and the demonic principles of conquest by way of deception can't fathom, is whatever they really want us to believe. In the above report, they really want us to believe that there is a really un-fabricated enemy who attacked the United States on 911, the consequent by-product of which is this new Fourth Generation warfare. Just as in PPS-23, they really wanted us to believe that they are fighting the real enemy, the Soviet Union, which, throughout its existence since the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, had entirely relied on the American tax-payer to sustain it! Un-freaking un-believable? Not if one understands that dialectical deception is the key principle behind it all.
This is far more complex and sophisticated, requiring long term planning, logistics, and execution, than what any two-bit tin-pot dictator in any third world country is capable of.
The “Mighty Wurlitzer” does its thing and us gullibles of the world continually fall for it. Please google that or look for it at http://humanbeingsfirst.org
Just look at the description of the Fourth Generation war – the targeted victim will already be demoralized by simply reading it! That is psy-ops 101. With that as the backdrop, what should one get out of this type of warfare whose signs are empirical in the dead bodies of Pakistanis and Palestinians and Iraqis and Lebanese and from Afghanistan to Yugoslavia and which needs no documentary revelations?
What is new that is not already covered in the 2500 year old “Art of War”?
No – the purpose is to disillusion the victim by its overwhelming 'shock and awe' impact upon all of one's senses.
And therefore, with Mir Jaffers and Mir Sadiqs running all our nations, and without whom these strategies wouldn't have a prayer of succeeding, the first enemy is the one within who enables this all.
Let's not lose sight of that enemy. Even in the United States, its own enemy responsible for its calculated and premeditated downfall is the one within.
It has only one agenda. And that must remain our combined focus. We take out the root, the diseased tree and all its branches will die a natural death! There may be some hysteresis, and we may hasten its extinction somewhat, but only after its roots have been neutralized.
Conclusion: Each society and nation must work on getting rid of its Mir Jaffers and Mir Sadiqs, and for those living in the West, that simply means Benedict Arnolds and the seduction of Delilahs. These silly documents, and all their games of demonic warfare, will fall on its face.

Letter to Editor

Dateline Sunday, February 15, 2009, 11:30 AM

The news media is awash with Agence France-Presse February 14 2009 report “G7 sets sights on 'new world economic order”, which stated:

'ROME (AFP) – The world's richest nations called Saturday for urgent reform of global finance to save the world from the economic devastation that is dragging more and more countries into recession. Italy's Finance Minister called for a "new world economic order" as he wrapped up the crisis meeting of finance leaders from the Group of Seven leading economies over which he presided here. In a joint declaration, the G7 called for "urgent reforms" of the international financial system. ... "A new world economic order might seem rhetorical," he told reporters. "But it is a true goal we should be aiming towards... today right here in Rome we've embarked on a very significant journey, both technical and ethical." ... The global crisis "has highlighted fundamental weaknesses in the international financial system and that urgent reforms are needed," the statement said. US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner vowed that his country, the biggest economy in the world and the source of much of the financial drama in recent months, would work with other nations for a consensus on reforms. "We need to begin the process of comprehensive reform of our financial system and the international financial system, so the world never again faces a crisis this severe," Geithner said after the talks. Dominique Strauss-Kahn, head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) -- the body coming to the rescue of some crisis-hit countries -- said restructuring banks damaged by the credit crunch was the main problem facing governments. ... The document hailed stimulus actions taken by other countries, singling out China which it also praised for its "continued commitment to move to a more flexible exchange rate." '

The New World Order is really pretty much a fait accompli. Being an ostrich doesn't really serve any function for its detractors. The arsonists have taken over all the fire brigades in town, and in every town, city, and state. The hyperinflation of the dollar is an irreversible done deal. The Glenn Beck video [1] from FOX News graphically shows the official United States debt, which is the same as the amount of U.S. currency in existence. See it by each decade from 1900 to 2006 in Van K. Tharp, Pg. 158, Figure 6.1. [2] This isn't even the tip of the iceberg however of what has deliberately been orchestrated by the financial houses in New York. The quadrillion+ dollar (1000 trillion dollars) derivatives paper-debt that nobody can exactly quantify nor fully comprehend – a mirage, a contrived and manufactured financial gibberish paper con-game calculatingly instrumented by the very arsonists who are now clamoring to lead the fire-brigade to save the world – is what is being referred to here: “We need to begin the process of comprehensive reform of our financial system and the international financial system, so the world never again faces a crisis this severe”. And their solution is: “A new world economic order”.

Meanwhile, the arsonists are crashing the dollar in the guise of fighting that lighted fire by the various open-ended deficit spending Bills in trillions, as the new mantra of “stimulus”. This includes payout of billions for overpriced bank bailouts – up to 10 and 20 times the asset value – in the name of shoring up the equity side of the equation since, as the financiers argue, nothing may now be done about the astronomical liability side of the equation incurred by the derivatives bubble. How convenient! See The Bank Swindle in Perspective [3] in order to appreciate the complex looting of the public treasury in legal guise, sanctioned by the mighty United States Congress, and then forced across the world as the only solution to the manufactured financial crisis. To acutely comprehend why the “stimulus” is just another mantra, a Rand/CFR joint production like the “WMD in Iraq” and “Al Qaeeda” mantras, see “Mr. Obama's New Deal” [4] and Why won't President Obama's 'Stimulus' work?. [5] As Captain Rhett Butler had shrewdly observed:

Oh, yes! What most people don't seem to realize is that there is just as much money to be made out of the wreckage of a civilization as from the upbuilding of one.” -- Gone With The Wind

The arsonists in the fire brigade well understand that bit of wisdom. They, very fortuitously, have also come to own all the lumber yards!

Soon they shall hurry back to Congress and lament: 'oops!, the stimulus didn't work; sorry, the dollar is now worthless, we are in the middle of the worst depression known to mankind, there are riots everywhere, food shortages everywhere, global warming is gonna cause floods, Osama bin Laden has unleashed a bio-terror nuclear attack; so we need to create a new economic union, a new full spectrum mutual defense union, and a new world order Constitution for the American continent to protect our peoples and address the global threats'.

That baby-step solution for the collapsed dollar will be the North American Union under a common central bank. It has been under subversive instrumentation as part of the Trilateralists' agenda for as long as the European Union, and will be just as rapidly deployed with an iron fist despite similar popular public opposition, because, “World government could only be kept in being by force”. Understand Glenn Beck's and Bill O'Reilly's mocking-chutzpah and double entendres displayed in this video clip [6] in “Why Not Be An Ostrich”. [7]

And the most fruitful realization of Captain Rhett Butler's swashbuckling truism is yet to come, the profiting “from the upbuilding” of civilization: the new Gold Standard which will be pitched with Congressman Ron Paul's help as the panacea demanded by the peoples. Since all the world's gold bullion supply, and the world's gold mines, are already under monopoly control of the same arsonists, no problem.

In the New Economic World Order, with global central banks – themselves controlled from behind the scenes by the same handful of private family banks owned by the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers – managing the world's merged global monetary system as well as all the world's political governments in a global governance architecture, it won't be a problem returning to the Gold Standard. All the fine gold will have to be purchased from the same private international banksters in order to back the trillions in new common currency issued for transacting the entire world's commerce. How convenient once again!

The new monetary system will be happily made inflation averse amidst cheers from the foolish goyem of the world. The new gold based standard after all, does have to protect the enormous wealth of the private banksters from inflationary-erosion in a largely serf-world of the New World Order, wherein, the only real asset owners are the banks. The new financial empire also has to be stable enough to last a millennium! Can't have inflation eroding away all its loot as it did moms and pops meager assets and life savings in the twentieth century. Why indeed the Gold Standard will now make perfect sense for the banksters and the handful of real wealth owners of the world, was so passionately explained over a hundred years ago by William Jennings Bryan, [8] that it is best refreshed in the goy's mind directly from the horse's mouth.

The contorted dialectical brilliance of the devilish banksters is truly unsurpassed!

More analysis in its full blooming context may be absorbed from Financial Terrorism January-February 2009. [9] Also visit the Monetary Reform Bibliography [10] for self-study material.

There is really no excuse for ignorance, idiocy, and gullibility – if one is a genuine patriot – as this Congressman [11] has blithely betrayed. If the respected representative of the people hasn't a darn clue, nor a forensic questioning mind, and nor is he learned in his own nation's monetary history, why does he feel entitled to be in Congress representing the people? The poor fellow has even been installed as the figurehead presiding Chair of the Capital Markets Subcommittee to obligingly follow the recommendations of the 'arson experts', and did indeed, by his own admission, go along with their plan on how to put out the fire – surely in good faith.
