Posted on 04/09/2003 5:39:46 AM PDT by bedolido
As war unfolds, Iraqi sleeper cells and al-Qaeda operatives aren't the only threats we face on the domestic front. Homegrown environmental radicals declared their own fatwa on the United States this week. And they're not just talking about lighting tea candles while they sing Bob Dylan tunes in their Birkenstocks.
These anarchist menaces are deadly serious about undermining national security through physical and economic harm.
In a manifesto published recently across left-wing Internet sites, infamous eco-thug Craig Rosebraugh called on his antiwar troops to take "direct actions'' against U.S. military establishments, urban centers, corporations, government buildings and media outlets.
This is not an idle threat. Rosebraugh is the former spokesman for the Earth Liberation Front (ELF), a violent guerrilla group. Along with its militant ally, the Animal Liberation Front, ELF has claimed responsibility for a long string of arsons and vandalism, causing tens of millions of dollars worth of destruction involving crop experiments and test fields at university research centers in the Midwest, fur farms in the Pacific Northwest, meat vendors in the San Francisco Bay area and department stores on the East Coast. ELF also takes credit for arsons at a ski resort in Vail, Colo., inspiring four teens to torch housing developments in Long Island and, recently, firebombing sport utility vehicles at an auto dealership outside Erie, Pa.
Fed up with pansy peace-march efforts, Rosebraugh is urging radicals to ditch "pointless'' protests and wage outright acts of terror "using any means necessary.'' Already, in cities from Washington to San Francisco, antiwar obstructionists have disrupted traffic and commerce, tying up precious law-enforcement resources.
I am reprinting much of Rosebraugh's rallying cry to his America-hating leftists so you know exactly what we are up against:
"Attack the financial centers of the country. Using covert or black-block techniques ... physically shut down financial centers which regulate and assist the functioning of U.S. economy. This can be done in a variety of ways from massive property destruction, to online sabotage, to physical occupation of buildings."
"Large-scale urban rioting. With massive unrest and even state of emergencies declared in major cities across the country, the U.S. government will be forced to send U.S. troops into the domestic arena, thereby taking resources and political focus away from the war."
"Attack the media centers of the country. ... Using any means necessary, shut down the national networks of NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, etc. Not just occupations, but actually engage in strategies and tactics which knock the networks off the air."
"Spread the battle to the individuals responsible for the war and destruction of life - the very heads of government and U.S. corporations. No longer should these people be able to hide behind their occupations, living their lives in peace while they simultaneously slaughter countless people. Hit them in their personal lives, visit their homes and make them feel personally responsible for committing massive atrocities."
"Make it known publicly that this movement DOES NOT support U.S. troops as long as they are serving an unjust and horrifying political regime. Create an atmosphere lacking of support to assist U.S. troops at home and abroad in losing their morale and will to fight. If you are supporting the troops, you are supporting this war and the very U.S. government that is the primary terrorist regime in the international arena."
"Actively target U.S. military establishments within the United States. ... Use any means necessary to slow down the functioning of the murdering body."
"When engaging in the above six activities, strike hard and fast and retreat in anonymity. ... DO NOT GET CAUGHT. Do not get sent to jail. Stay alert, keep active and keep fighting. Remember, an action is only good (especially at this juncture in U.S. society) if it will serve to severely disrupt the political system of the country, its economy and the corporate interests that drive this society.''
These green saboteurs aim to destroy our livelihoods and our military in the name of "peace." Our government must treat them as enemy combatants, not misguided imbeciles, and use any means necessary to stop them in their terrorist tracks.

It is in the breaking news sidebar!
At Vandenberg, officials have plainly said that any protesters crossing the fence will be shot. And none of that rubber bullet business either.
Why hasn't this scumbag been arrested already?

A full copy of this nutcase's "manifesto" would be instructive.
And why aren't we hunting down this cockroach the way we are Bin Laden? Where's his picture?
Ted whatshisname could use a cellmate...
I'm not really familiar with Rosebaugh, but I guess it's a little like Charles Manson: don't commit the crimes yourself, get others to commit them for you. The difference is that Manson was an accessory to murder. Rosebaugh is [gag] exercising his right to free speech.
That is where freedom of speech ends and sedition begins. There should be a bounty on this slimebag's head. I can't believe that he hasn't had a serious "accident" yet.
Oh, wait; the good guys are in charge now and we don't do that stuff any more...
Because the ATF and the FBI have more important things to do, like laying seige to the property of some harmless low class white trash who lived way back up in the woods in Idaho, killing his wife, son, and dog. All because he didn't like black folks and Jews, and he sawed 1/2 inch off the barrel of shot gun. This dude was a menace to America on the same scale as Osama bin Laden. (sarcasm off)
Quite frankly, the reason, as I see it, that the Feds don't spend much time on the Watermelons is because they are generally rich folks kids, who have friends in high places.
String him up by his feet and beat him like a pinata.
LOL. Liberal logic?
(With Clinton - they were soooo close to getting their U.S.S.A. They want their socialist revolution - dammit!)
Is it AIDS or just a vegan diet that makes him look like that?
