"War is the continuation of politics by other means."
Karl von Clausewitz

"If the people are not convinced (that the Free World is in mortal danger) it would be impossible for Congress to vote the vast sums now being spent to avert danger. With the support of public opinion, as marshalled by the press, we are off to a good start. It is our Job - yours and mine -- to keep our people convinced that the only way to keep disaster away from our shores is to build up America's might."
Charles Wilson, Chairman of the Board of General Electric and Truman appointee to head the Office of Defence Mobilization, speech to the Newspaper Publishers Association, 1950

"Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization."
Z. Brzezinski.The Grand Chessboard, 1997

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years . . . It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated now and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto determination practiced in past centuries”
David Rockefeller. Bilderberg meeting, Germany, June 1991

"Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy"
Henry Kissinger

"The United States must cultivate a mental view toward world settlement after this war which will enable us to impose our own terms,
amounting perhaps to a pax-Americana."

11/10 Texas & Seattle PsyWar Updates; Cybercom: Blogs, Tweets; Photos & Docs from 'US Spy Den';Rabbi "OK to Kill Gentiles"

Digest note: Comparing media reports provides valuable lesson in how U.S. 'information warfare' -- essential foundation of its strategic global agenda --- works

Bookend stories from Fort Hood and Seattle get fishier and more ominous by the hour. In both cases, asking cui bono points ever more clearly to psywar / "black flag ops. Contradictory 'News' reports merit no rational explanations or corrections: Fort Hood reports initially stated the author and contents of emails weren't known. Then, that FBI had notified the Army of Hasan's "al qaeda" connections, but it did nothing, now that's denied and/or deleted. Today we're informed that Hasan-Awlaki communications started being intercepted last December. Considering the state's massive surveillance and propaganda machinery (touched upon below), it's clear that 'intel'/military are covering up their roles.
Many possibilities, among them: Hasan was a patsy, maybe one of the US' trained 'moderate' Muslim who 'betrayed' his 'jihad' pacification role; That Awlaki, safely ensconced supposedly in Yemen, and his government-known work for US. Seattle's 'anti-american cop killer' story is an ever more extravagant call for ratcheting up 'domestic' repression against a mythological 'terrorist' radical war against police. No state ops will write a new chapter in US history. Regardless of how the bits & pieces pull together, these events mark a major propaganda and policy page-turner in the US terror-war agenda.

AS U.S. IMPERIALISM'S UNPRECEDENTEDLY SAVAGE GLOBAL JUGGERNAUT DETERIORATES & GLOBAL RESISTANCE GROWS, SO DOES ITS URGENT NEED TO EXECUTE POLICE STATE SAFEGUARDS ESTABLISHED IN THE POST 911 'NATIONAL SECURITY' INFRASTRUCTURE MORE BOLDLY. THE OFFICIAL IMPRIMATUR CAME WITH OBAMA'S DECLARATION OF 'SWINE FLU NATIONAL EMERGENCY', THE BASIS FOR MARTIAL LAW. (previous digest issues examine all this in depth}

THE CAPITALIST STATE IN FASCIST MODE HAS FORGED AN EVER-DEEPENING MERGER WITH RELIGION, CRUCIAL FOR WINNING 'GOD-FEARING' POLITICAL, MILITARY AND SOCIAL SUPPORT FOR FASCISM-WITH-A-DECREASINGLY-FRIENDLY-FACE. STATE & CHURCH, ESSENTIAL 'SECURITY STATE WMD.

FORT HOOD & SEATTLE TOGETHER & IN THEIR OWN SPECIFIC WAYS DEMONSTRATE HOW OPPOSITION, EVEN CRITICISM, OF USRAEL 'POLICIES' IS SYNONYMOUS WITH 'ANTI-AMERICAN' 'DOMESTIC TERRORISM'. STATE ISSUED PROPAGANDA WITHOUT CHALLENGE OR CRITICS IS THE 'NEWS'. SUGGESTIONS, SUSPICIONS, ALLEGATIONS CONSTITUTE FACTUAL 'EVIDENCE', GROUNDS FOR 'PREEMPTIVE' ATTACK AND PUNISHMENT. CHARGES OF AND PROTESTS AGAINST RACIST POLICE BRUTALITY AND THE ALWAYS 'JUSTIFIABLE HOMICIDE' OF BLACK & BROWN PEOPLE ARE NO LONGER JUST IGNORED, ATTACKED BY POLICE, OR BLOCKED, THIS YEAR THEY WERE IMMEDIATELY LINKED TO 'DOMESTIC TERRORISM' -- BEFORE ANY EVEN MANUFACTURED 'EVIDENCE' WAS OFFERED. (more below)

THE STATE'S 'INFORMATION WARFARE' IS IN HIGH GEAR UP WITH THIS ADMIN. DEFENDING & EXPANDING PATRIOT ACT CONTROLS AND SURVEILLANCE, AND THEN OBAMA DECLARING BLOGGERS A 'THREAT TO DEMOCRACY'... CORRECTLY MEANING A THREAT TO CAPITALIST MONOPOLY OF INFORMATION & COMMUNICATIONS.

Get Ready for the Emergency Protests! They Want to Kill Mumia Abu-Jamal – But Joint Action by Us All Can Prevent This!
AHM-ATİK News Center
November 2, 2009 - It is now for almost 27 years that the African American journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal has been on death row in Pennsylvania, U.S.A., as a political prisoner. His trial and his conviction for murder were a typical example for racist bias and class justice. The presiding judge denied Mumia the funds necessary for a defense and called him a "n….r", the prosecutor first picked a jury which consisted almost exclusively of conservative White males, and then proceeded to paint a picture of the defendant as an ice-cold, ultra-leftist killer. In this trial, tainted as it was by racism and political repression, the former Black Panther Party spokesman Mumia never had a chance and was sentenced to death. All the same, the unbearable conditions of incarceration on death row Mumia has had to suffer for so long have neither broken him nor snuffed his voice. Even there, he doesn’t give up and continues to write and broadcast against the injustices of capitalist society...http://www.uruknet.de/?p=59656

Are Obama advisers downplaying Afghan dangers?
http://www.mcclatchydc.com/afghanistan-pakistan/story/76920.html
By Jonathan S. Landay, John Walcott and Nancy A. Youssef
WASHINGTON -- As the Obama administration reconsiders its Afghanistan policy, White House officials are minimizing warnings from the intelligence community, the military and the State Department about the risks of adopting a limited strategy focused on al Qaida, U.S. intelligence, diplomatic and military officials told McClatchy. Recent U.S. intelligence assessments have found that the Taliban and other Pakistan-based groups that are fighting U.S.-led forces have much closer ties to al Qaida now than they did before 9/11, would allow the terrorist network to re-establish bases in Afghanistan and would help Osama bin Laden export his radical brand of Islam to Afghanistan's neighbors and beyond, the officials said.

Obama Asks Bloggers For Help
21 July 2009
President Barack Obama yesterday called on like-minded bloggers to help his administration keep the heat on lawmakers to pass health care reform.
"I know the blogs are best at debunking myths that can slip through a lot of the traditional media outlets," he said. "And that is why you are going to play such an important role in our success in the weeks to come." http://martininthemargins.blogspot.com/2009/07/obama-asks-bloggers-for-h...

WAR IS POLITICS BY OTHER MEANS
"It is of course well known that the only source of war is politics -- the intercourse of governments and peoples. . . that war is simply a continuation of political intercourse, with the addition of other means. War is not a mere act of policy but a true political instrument, a continuation of political activity by other means"
from Clausewitz's On War from an Instructors Guide to teaching Clausewitz at the US National War College, Washington D.C. -

"War is the continuation of politics...by other means...History shows that wars are divided into two kinds, just and unjust.... The way to oppose a war of this kind [unjust/imperialist] is to do everything possible to prevent it before it breaks out and, once it breaks out, to oppose war with war, to oppose unjust war with just war, whenever possible."
"On Protracted War" (May 1938), Selected Works, Vol. II, pp. 152-5

"Revolutions and revolutionary wars are inevitable in class society, without them it is impossible to accomplish any leap in social development, to overthrow the reactionary ruling classes and therefore impossible for the people to win political power."
"On Contradiction" (August1937), Selected Works, Vol. I, p. 344

10/7/09 Eight Years Later: Afghanistan Savaged, U.S. Losing, Resistance Winning

SUPPORT ANTI-IMPERIALIST/ZIONIST RESISTANCE!
8 years ago today, under the pretext of 911, the u.s. launched an unjust war against Afghanistan as a critical step toward its global hegemonic goal. 8 years later, having installed a quisling govt., massacred thousands and laid waste to another sovereign nation, a massive, growing national resistance [aka 'taliban' / al qaeda] is defeating its forces - so u.s. plans a massive escalation of 'counter-insurgency' combined with 'counter-terror' state terror - to 'protect the Afghan people' and 'american national security' in its fascist 'AfPak' project.

UN: Record number of Afghan civilian deaths in 2009
By Tom Eley
28 September 2009
The United Nations mission in Afghanistan recorded about 1,500 civilian deaths in the first six months of 2009, a 24 percent increase over the previous year and a record in the eight-year-old war. August witnessed the most civilian killings, largely due to violence associated with that month’s elections, the report said. It provided no figure for the August death toll. The report—the Mid-Year Bulletin on the Protection of Civilians in Arme d Conflict in Afghanistan—only tallies recorded deaths. It therefore underestimates the number of civilian deaths caused by the war, many of which go unreported: http://www.uruknet.de/?p=58371
