    Looking in The Eyes of evil “You attacked us in Somalia; you supported the Russian atrocities against us in Chechnya, the Indian oppression against us in Kashmir, and the Jewish aggression against us in Lebanon” “Under your supervision, consent and orders, the governments of our countries which act as your agents, attack us on a daily basis” “These governments steal our Ummah's wealth and sell them to you at a paltry price” These quotes from Usama bin Laden could be considered to be one of two realities, either Usama bin Laden is a mad man who is in complete disillusionment...

    Most readers of The Sun are possessed of sight, hearing and a lively interest in public affairs. How many of them would voluntarily accept the risk of losing them to advance the reasons the government of the United States has stated for waging war in Iraq? Many young Americans have lost sight and hearing in Iraq. If asked to speak to America on the loss, this is what one of them might say. “Dear America: “I am an American soldier. I am 20 years old. I am blind and deaf. I lost my face to a grenade in Iraq. “You...

  • Parallels between Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 and Goebbels' Der ewige Jude

    now | Me
    Micheal Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 propaganda film style reminds of Joseph Goebbels' Der ewige Jude {The Eternal Jew}. The parallels are unmistakable. Crude and full of half truths, some segemts are absurdly laughable. They both play fast and loose with the truth to create support for a lie. For example, notice the footage of a kosher slaughter {still row 22} where a jewish rabbi is falsely shown to be gleeful because a cow is bleeding to death. They both rely on a heap of innuendo and conspiracy theories, that if to be belived, one must take a leap of faith: -Goebbels...
  • O'Reilly Blasts Hollywood's Goebbels

    "Give Fox News Channel star Bill O'Reilly credit for even attending Monday night's lefty celeb-glutted premiere of Michael Moore's 'Fahrenheit 9/11' - even if he walked out of the 110-minute Bush-bashing movie halfway through," the New York Daily News said today. The paper reports that on his radio program last week, O'Reilly compared Moore to the National Socialists' master of deceit: "Joseph Goebbels was the minister of propaganda for the Nazi regime and whose very famous quote was, 'If you tell a lie long enough, it becomes the truth.'" But when Moore caught O'Reilly escaping the schlockumentary early, "O'Reilly blushed,...

    ''Fahrenheit 9/11'' finds domestic distributor GARY GENTILE, AP Business Writer Tuesday, June 1, 2004 (06-01) 17:30 PDT LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Michael Moore's award-winning documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" has picked up a U.S. distributor and will hit theaters June 25. The film will be released by a partnership of Lions Gate Films, IFC Films and the Fellowship Adventure Group, which was formed by Harvey and Bob Weinstein specifically to market Moore's film. The Weinsteins, who run Miramax Films, bought the rights to the movie from The Walt Disney Co., which owns Miramax and refused to distribute Moore's film. The Weinstein brothers...
  • Mike Wallace Turns WWII Memorial into Anti-Bush Bash

    It was supposed to be an event where World War II-era journalists could swap war stories and bask in the glory of the soon-to-be christened WWII memorial on Washington, D.C.'s mall. But it didn't take long for CBS "60 Minutes" star Mike Wallace and USA Today founder Al Neuharth, who had been invited to address the crowd, to turn Friday's WWII reminiscence into bash-Bush rally. Wallace began innocently enough, telling the crowd that in WWII, "We knew what we were fighting for. We knew how important it was. We loved our country. We loved our commander-in-chief. "And when Pearl...

    Randi Rhodes announced today that she is quitting Air America. Rhodes made the surprise announcement in a prepared statement at the opening of today's broadcast of the Randi Rhodes Show. On a related note the Arbitron ratings came out (for New York only) and it is not pretty. Air America on WLIB came in ranked #24 between #25 Mexican Radio and #26 Wall of Voodoo. LEGAL CLARIFCATION REQUIRED: If you quit on a radio show with no ratings does that count as a resignation? The Air America message board is in mourning. In case you missed is the updated...

    MSNBC said this morning that Nick Berg "paid with his life" for the prisoner abuse. Indeed, the story was about whether Rumsfeld should resign, and the killing was just more evidence he should. USA Today headline: Brutality Intensifies In Iraq. Beheading is portrayed as a consequence of, part of the prisoner abuse story, and a supposed break down in order in Iraq which is the U.S.'s fault.On radio they are playing up the angle that Berg died because Iraq is so "unstable" and Nick's father has given a statement that he's not surprised by his son's murder because the U.S....

    The pictures which sparked claims UK soldiers abused Iraqis were staged at a British barracks by Territorial Army (TA) members, it has been reported. Sources told the Daily Telegraph the photographs were set up in a Bedford MK lorry at Kimberley TA base in Preston. Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon said it was likely the pictures were a hoax. The regiment accused of the abuse has demanded an apology from the Daily Mirror for publishing the images, but the paper has stood by their accuracy. The photographs appeared to show soldiers from the Queen's Lancashire Regiment urinating on a prisoner and...

    In the Style section last summer we profiled a Los Angeles writer named Micah Ian Wright, who'd just published a shrill antiwar poster book called "You Back the Attack! We'll Bomb Who We Want!" In his book, he described himself as a veteran of combat, a former Army Ranger whose experiences during the 1989 invasion of Panama turned him into a peacenik. In interviews with The Post and other media, he played up that background. Wright, it turns out, is a liar. He never served in the military --

    A friend told me a very sad story about a local TV station lying about comments of a father whose son just died in Iraq in the last couple weeks. My friend is going to talk to the friend about possibly going public. I recall that there was a similar incident in the last few weeks and I'm looking for the story or links to it on FR. As I remember, a step-father (hereafter "father") of a fallen soldier or Marine was approached by a local TV reporter (I think it was Houston, TX). Reporter asked the father if he...

    Friends, I have never seen a head so far up a Presidential ass (pardon my Falluja) than the one I saw last night at the "news conference" given by George W. Bush. He's still talking about finding "weapons of mass destruction" -- this time on Saddam's "turkey farm." Turkey indeed. Clearly the White House believes there are enough idiots in the 17 swing states who will buy this. I think they are in for a rude awakening. I've been holed up for weeks in the editing room finishing my film ("Fahrenheit 911"). That's why you haven't heard from me lately....

You are needlessly risking your lives to wage a useless, unjust, illegal, and unwinnable war. Now is the time to return home to your loved ones, while you are still alive. If you foolishly insist on remaining where you are not wanted, the brave resistance fighters will have no choice but to kill you and add your name to the long ever-increasing casualty list of this insane war. So why risk never seeing your loved...
