US, Israel, India: the real axis of evil threatening the world
Under George Bush the US is well on its way to establishing a commonwealth of social and moral lepers whose members include such outcasts as the zionist State of Israel and Hindu-ruled India. The real axis of evil is formed by this unholy trinity, not North Korea, Iran and Iraq, as claimed by Bush in his State of the Union address on January 30. Not surprisingly, the speech was roundly condemned worldwide, even by Americas allies Germany, France, Spain, the European Union and even NATO Secretary General Lord George Robertson. Americas rightwingers, such as former secretary of State Madeleine Albright, also rounded on Bush, calling his comments a big mistake. Russia distanced itself from the cowboy mentality gripping Washington; only king Abdullah II of Jordan, a non-entity, expressed support.
Naturally, Iran and Iraq did not take kindly to Bushs remarks, calling them irresponsible, and Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi challenged Washington to provide proof instead of making spurious allegations. The best comment, however, came from Pyongyang, the North Korean capital. A foreign ministry spokesman was quoted by the BBC on February 4 as saying that Washingtons recent problems were entirely attributable to the unilateral and self-opinionated foreign policy, political immaturity and moral leprosy of the Bush administration. The North Koreans went on to say that Bushs State of the Union address was little short of a declaration of war.
Had the problem been confined to Bush, there would be room for us to be charitable: his understanding of world issues does not transcend that of a fourth-grade student. But Bushs remarks were also echoed by National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice, who is not an ignoramus like Bush. It seems that the poison of racism has soaked so deeply into the American psyche that even people like Rice and Colin Powell, both blacks, will indulge in racist cant at the behest of their white masters.
One must, however, seek clues to such intemperate remarks elsewhere. The French put their finger on the real instigators of Bushs crude remarks: Israel. Sources in the French secret service say that on the eve of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharons visit to Washington on February 7, the Israelis spun a fantastic story. They claimed their intelligence had located Usama Bin Ladin, who was being kept under the heavy protection of Iranian security forces in northwestern Iran, not far from its border with Iraq. Mullah Omar is also being harboured by the Iranians. Stung by their failure to seize either man, despite making so much fuss about them, the Americans swallowed the Israeli-concocted story completely, and Bush lumped Iran with Iraq, his favourite bogey. The zionists were, of course, delighted. North Korea was named mainly in order to deflect criticism that Bush is waging an anti-Muslim war.
Unable to crush the Palestinian intifada, and having suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of the Hizbullah in Lebanon, Israel would like nothing better than to see the US target Islamic Iran. Irans support for the struggling Palestinians and Hizbullah is based on moral, religious and humanitarian principles as well as international law, but Uncle Sam cannot bear the discomfiture of its ward. The US alleges that Tehran supports terrorism, is trying to destabilise the regime in Afghanistan and is producing weapons of mass-destruction. Barring the US and Israel, nobody else considers Hizbullah or Hamas terrorist organisations. Even if they did, it would make no difference because the struggle to liberate ones land is recognised in international law as well as the UN charter. The West, however, can be quite hypocritical about laws, even its own. The USs brutal treatment of prisoners who have been illegally transported out of Afghanistan to Cuba is a case in point.
Iran has no desire to destabilise the regime in Afghanistan even if it has any ideological differences with it. Iran has pledged US$500 million over two years for Afghanistans reconstruction; this is more than Washingtons pledges so far. America causes death and destruction through war, and has no use for peace or rebuilding. Iran has very good reason to want peace on its eastern borders: it would like to repatriate the 2.5 million Afghan refugees whom it has supported, without outside help, for more than 20 years. This is no small burden for a country that had to fight an eight-year Iraqi-imposed war that was instigated by the West and financed by Arab governments.
The real axis of evil has emerged between the US, Israel and India. While the Israelis have been on a rampage in the Middle East since their illegal settlement in the heartland of Islam, the Indians are just beginning to attract Americas attention. Washington wants India to act as a bulwark against the emerging power of China, which is expected to rival the US economically and militarily in 25 years time. The US wants to disrupt Chinas progress but cannot do so directly: Uncle Sam is not very brave; he wants others to fight his wars. This is what happened in Afghanistan; the Americans bombed Afghanistan from thousands of feet up while the ground battles were fought by Afghan mercenaries. Even now the Americans have barricaded themselves into a heavily-fortified compound near Qandahar airport, from where they seldom venture out. Ground operations are still conducted by their Afghan mercenaries.
India has been given a free hand to continue its policy of rape, pillage and murder in Kashmir in return for its willingness to serve Americas global interests. It has also been allowed to bully Pakistan, despite the latters desperate attempts to prevent war from erupting over Kashmir. It is interesting to note that Sudan is accused of practising State terrorism for trying to prevent the Southern Sudanese rebels from breaking the country up, yet India is accused of nothing for its brutal policies in Kashmir, where more than 80,000 people have been murdered since December 1989. Instead, Kashmiri freedom-fighters are branded terrorists for seeking self-determination. It must be borne in mind that Kashmir is not a part of India and never has been; even the UN considers it disputed territory whose status has yet to be determined. Why should Christian Solidarity International, which finances the Southern Sudanese rebels, not be called a sponsor of international terrorism, when Muslim groups in Pakistan that support the Kashmiris struggle for self-determination are?
Even French Foreign Minister Herbert Vedrine has condemned Americas unilateralism and said that, in the guise of fighting terrorism, the US is simply advancing its own agenda. France, he said, would not support any such policy. The alliance between the worlds moral lepers the US, Israel and India is now out in the open. What is interesting to note is that each set of elites claims that its country is a democracy: America is the strongest democracy, India the largest, and Israel the only democracy in the Middle East.
New US Air Base Nears Completion at Shiite Herat, E. Afghanistan
Passages from DEBKA-Net-Weekly Exclusive
23 July: Notwithstanding its avowed reluctance to boost its presence in Afghanistan, the United States has launched two critical military steps:
First, A 45-man American unit, including special forces, will move into the presidential palace in Kabul and assume responsibility for Hamid Karzais safety. It will replace a contingent of Afghan commandos who will be sent back to base. Concern for the safety of Karzai, a linchpin of US regional interests, is acute since the recent assassination of the vice president.
Second, as DEBKA-Net-Weekly reported exclusively in its last issue on July 19, a spanking new American underground air base is nearing completion south of the Shiite city of Herat in western Afghanistan. To be the largest facility of its kind in that part of the world, it is scheduled to go operational in September as the new home of US aerial forces scattered around the Persian Gulf, Central Asia and other locations in Afghanistan. The base will also house elements of the advanced control and command center dismantled at the Prince Sultan air base in Saudi Arabia and temporarily stored in new US bases in Qatar and Oman, as well as a US special forces position.
The big new installations will stretch the US Air forces operational scope across Afghanistan and the Caspian Sea region - with its vital oil reserves and natural resources; Central Asia, all of Iran, the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz and the northern Arabian Sea up to Yemens Socotra Islands. It will also provide the US air force with a commanding position in relation to Pakistan, India and the western fringes of China. It has not been lost on Iranian strategists that the Herat base is a link in a formidable chain of new facilities the United States is in the process of drawing around their country. Other links, as DEBKA-Net-Weekly reported in Issue 67, are the new air and naval facilities at Assab and Dahlak in the Eritrean archipelago and in Tiblisi, Georgia, as well as those located on Yemens Socotra Islands and in the Red Sea port town of Hodeidah.
Not surprisingly. the new base is causing sleepless nights in Tehran. As one source said: It should be understood that when Iranian leaders see the map of American bases tightening around us like a noose, they are absolutely sure that Washingtons primary goal is first to strangle us, then kills us off.
Irans leaders had counted on the local Afghan Shiite leader, Ismail Khan, drawing the line against US military advances in his turf. But the speed with which he changed his spots reflects the increasing feebleness of the ayatollahs regime in Tehran.
Of course it was exclusive. Nobody else can hear the voices in the writer's head.

US, India, Israel. Add Russia and Turkey, and you can see why the bad guys are getting queasy.
Its not all bad news out there. Castro will be gone within 24 months (my prediction, a pretty easy one considering he is 112 years old). Saddam will be gone in the same time period. The existence of a secular, quasi-democratic regime in Baghdad will quite possible bring down the Wahabists in Riyadh. The Iranian people are at the edge of sweeping the ayatollahs into the ash-heap.
Just hold tough and have a little confidence.
