- Bush admits there is no link between Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden, hence
9/11. Yet he dissembled so often most Americans were so
confused they even thought they were one and the same person.
- George W. Bush’s Religious Beliefs. Bush was influenced my Wesleyan and
Calvinist beliefs. Bush sometimes identifies as Epsicopalian, Methodist or Baptist. He
had a religious experience in 1986 at age 39 with Billy Graham that convinced him to completely stop drinking. He also
belongs to two Satanic cults, the Skull & Bones Society and the
Grove. He opens all his meeting with public prayer, and quotes the Bible
extensively in his public speeches. His defence philosophy is certainly not inspired
by the Sermon on the Mount.

greatest country on earth, is now regarded as a bully, is regarded as arrogant, is
regarded as careless about war.

Refresh your memory on his track record. He is a compulsive liar. He lies even when there is no possible
benefit, just to keep his hand in. Has he ever told the plain
unvarnished truth about anything more substantial than what he felt like eating for
breakfast? I would like to compile a list. I have asked repeatedly for submissions
and have never got a response.

Australians report on the
Basra water supply damage in the Iraq war. Damaging water supplies is against the
Geneva convention. It targets kids specifically, since they die first of dehydration
and from drinking from polluted puddles.
It turns out we were all wrong, probably, in my judgement, and that is most
disturbing — both America and Iraq learned that when you try too hard to
control the picture of reality, you risk losing your grasp of it.

It is difficult to debate with folks like him in the alt.politics.bush newsgroup
who view war as a sort of international-league football or paintball game. It has
still not sunk in that wars primarily make kids and innocents suffer. Perhaps some
photos will provide a tiny crack in the delusion.
- One of the amusing things is Muslim (not terrorist) investors withdrew $700 billion in investments from the USA out of fear Bush would would
seize their assets. In other words, the US panic over 9/11
and its overreaction is part of the cause of its current economic woes and the
spectacular success of the Islamic economies. Since 2004 the
Saudi stock market has outperformed all others.

What You Can Do
The key is to reach people who only watch TV, hypnotised
by FOX/CNN propaganda. To do that you must buy Barrie Zwicker’s Vision TV
documentary The Great Deception, What really happened on Sept. 11 on
DVD (Digital Video Disc) or video tape.
Then buy Iraq
Uncovered on DVD.
Then invite some friends over to watch, and give them copies of the
DVD and the
CD (Compact Disk).
Then find some vets who have recently returned from Iraq. Get them on TV. Get them to
address your club. Failing that invite them to you home to talk to your friends to learn
first hand about what happened in Iraq.
