3/4/02 - 3/10/02

Sunday  3/10/02

Al-Amin's life now on the line  3/10/02 Atlanta Journal Constitution 

Civil Liberties Take Back Seat to Safety  3/10/02 LA Times 

America gears up for a new kind of war  3/10/02 Observer, UK 

U.S. Pulls Troops From Battle; Afghan Force Divided  3/10/02 Reuters 

Afghan Alliance Rift Looms as US Seeks Back-up  3/10/02 Times, UK 

War on terror masks Bush's grand strategy  3/10/02 Toronto Sun: breaking with Sun's owners' pro-Israel policy. "America has been scourged by terrorist attacks because of its often heavy-handed interventions abroad, not because Muslims hate democracy or McDonald's. The Saudis who staged kamikaze attacks on the U.S. did so because of the agony of Palestine and Iraq, and American domination of Saudi Arabia. Deeper U.S. involvement in Asia will likely mean more, not less, risk of terrorist attacks."

The truth is out there ... right?  3/10/02 Vancouver Sun: "And sure enough, unusually high numbers of put options were purchased in early September for the stocks of AMR Corp. and UAL Corp., the parents of American and United -- each of which had two planes hijacked. The U.S. government is now investigating suspicious trading in 38 companies directly affected by the events of Sept. 11. The initial survey of beneficiaries, however, turns out not to include one tall, dark-haired, olive-skinned, Allah-loving, Saudi-born sheik. Mainly the profiteers were blue-chip, establishment, red-white-and-blue Americans, some of whom were tenants in the collapsed twin towers, such as Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, Lehman Brothers and the Bank of America, major airlines, cruise companies, General Motors Corp., Raytheon and others. Several insurance companies are also on the 38-name list U.S. and Canadian financial firms were asked to review and compare with their records for any unusual patterns."


Saturday  3/9/02

topFrance Refused to Bomb Some Afghan Targets  3/9/02 ABC News: "France has refused to allow its warplanes to attack some targets in Afghanistan assigned to them by U.S. commanders during the last week, arguing that the missions endangered civilians, Le Monde daily said."

Israel and the U.S.: A Unique Relationship  3/9/02 Aztlan 

Israeli Policies Could Tear Jews Apart  3/9/02 Common Dreams 

U.S. Works Up Plan for Using Nuclear Arms  3/9/02 LA Times: "Military: Administration, in a secret report, calls for a strategy against at least seven nations: China, Russia, Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Libya and Syria."

Wounded Soldiers Recall Tenacious Enemy Attack  3/9/02 NYT 

The Secret Bomb Squad  3/9/02 Time: "Last January the Administration quietly ordered NEST to launch periodic searches for a "dirty bomb" in Washington and other large U.S. cities. Administration officials tell Time that the NEST teams aren't dispatched to urban areas because of any specific threat received. Instead, almost every week the FBI randomly selects several cities for visits by NEST, which comprises some 300 scientists and technicians from Energy and nuclear-weapons laboratories trained in finding and dismantling terrorist nuclear devices."


Friday  3/8/02

topUS says coca production up 25 percent in Colombia  3/8/02 Boston Globe: The results of the billion dollar Plan Columbia are in. Is the US really trying to reduce trafficking? Or are there other aims?

Canadian soldiers escape injury in Kandahar explosion  3/8/02 CBC: "It was no accident. An explosion and fire at an ammunition dump near an airbase for Canadians and Americans near Kandahar was set off by a booby trap, according to the Canadian commander." Would the US Commander be allowed to admit to that?

The Nightmare in Israel  3/8/02 Counterpunch: "JVAO's Bluma Goldstein tells me that 450 has signed it and $30,000 raised towards the necessary $37,750. Mail them at JVAO, PO Box 11606, Berkeley, Ca 94712. Their email is jvao@jvao.org. Remember Kimmerling's line, "And I accuse myself of knowing all of this, yet crying little and keeping quiet too often." Now read closely this "Call For International Action to END THE OCCUPATION NOW!" issued by Jeff Halper, of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD) on March 6:"

Slow Progress in Afghanistan May Delay US Iraq Offensive  3/8/02 Debka, Israel: From the Israeli psyops site: "Tommy Franks, the US Central Command chief, transferred to the Gardez battlefield US forces standing by on Oman’s Masirah Island base for the US offensive against Iraq. Several thousand more may have to follow, if fighting flares up in additional Taliban-al Qaeda pockets around Afghanistan. US forces in Gardez commanded by major general Frank Hagenbeck faced a hard fact this week: the joint US-Afghan force was unable to stem the influx of Taliban and al-Qaeda reinforcements from Pakistan, only several dozen kilometers away, and from among additional enemy concentrations in Afghanistan – particularly since Thursday, when the mountain region was struck with blinding snow storms. DEBKAfile’s military sources say that, while the Americans were pouring additional soldiers, 17 assault helicopters and tank-busting A-10 aircraft into the area, the other side was moving in reinforcements too, equipped with large quantities of anti-tank missiles and various shoulder-held surface-to-air missiles, including US-made Stingers. US spy satellites and drones spotted groups of Taliban and al-Qaeda converging on the battle zone from as far away as the Hindu Kush mountains, north of the city of Jalalabad, and the Zabul province south of Gardez."

US faces guerrilla warfare  3/8/02 Guardian, UK 

U.S. rejects hard line by Sharon  3/8/02 IHT 

Boy shot by police did not point weapon, judge rules  3/8/02 Kansas City Star: The cops lied about shooting an unarmed boy - his BB gun was found 6 feet away from his body. But the department does nothing to sanction them. There is no justice agaisnt police terror in the US. Let it be noted that this kind of shooting does not happen in Cuba, which the US persists in calling a terrorist country.

Four More U.S. Helicopters Destroyed: More American Casualties in Gardez  3/8/02 Kavkaz: "Huge numbers of crying American soldiers, wounded in combat, are being ferried to and from medical centres in Khost and the U.S. Base in the vicinity."

SHIMON PERES WARNS THAT ISRAEL COULD BE ACCUSED OF WAR CRIMES  3/8/02 Radio Havana: "Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres has asserted that the excessively harsh military measures in occupied Palestinian territories could lead to accusations of war crimes."

Operation Anaconda: Questionable Outcomes for United States  3/8/02 Stratfor: "Operation Anaconda signals the beginning of a new phase of the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan. In this phase insurgency and counterinsurgency operations will become the main feature. Militarily, Operation Anaconda shows the United States has yet to find an effective response on the ground to guerrilla warfare. Dominant air power will remain the only sufficient means to win battles, but it might not be enough to win the war in Afghanistan."

THE TEXAS PART OF THE ISRAELI SPY RING  3/5/02 Intelligence Online 

Israeli Spy Network Dismantled in the United States  3/5/02 Le Monde in English: "More than a third of these "students," who, according to the report, moved in at least 42 American cities, stated to reside in Florida. Five at least were intercepted in Hollywood, and two in Fort Lauderdale. Hollywood is a town of 25,000 inhabitants to the north of Miami, close to Fort Lauderdale. However, at least 10 of the 19 terrorists from September 11 were residing in Florida." Along with resettled elements of the Israeli Mafia who moved en masse to South Florida several decades back to join Meyer Lanski's associates.

Un réseau d'espionnage israélien a été démantelé aux Etats-Unis  3/5/02 Le Monde, France: "Le Monde a demandé à trois reprises à Fox News de lui fournir une cassette de l'émission.

Where Is the Press in Colombian War? - FARC: The State, not the Rebels, Killed the Senator  3/5/02 NarcoNews: "The FARC's Marco León Calarcá was available yesterday, all day, at the Mexico City Business and Commerce Center. That none of these news organizations bothered to seek the other side of their March 4th reports, speaks volumes about how the Colombian war, in addition to being a civil war inside Colombia, is, internationally, an information war, a "netwar," as it is defined by think-tanks like the RAND Corporation. For Latin Americans, the recent controversy over Pentagon plans to start a "disinformation office" was laughable. That office has had many names, and existed for years, South of the Border."

Eyewitnesses said Israeli helicopter gunships strafed the densely populated camp with heavy machinegun fire as more than 30 Israeli tanks attacked it from four directions, amid a barrage of artillery bombardment. "The Israeli army is carrying out a real massacre, they are targeting, men, women, children, shops, mosques, animals, homes and schools," said Khalil Abu Bakr, a resident of the camp. "They are intent on killing and maiming as many civilians as possible," said the middle aged Palestinian refugee, adding "don't believe them if they tell you they don't target civilians."

Estimates of the total number of Muslims range from 0.7 to 1.2 billion worldwide and 3 to 6 million in the U.S. About 20% of all people on earth follow Islam. The religion is in a period of rapid growth.

Christianity is currently the largest religion in the world. It is followed by about 33% of all people -- a percentage that has remaind stable for decades. It is expected that, if current trends continue, Islam will become the most popular religion sometime in the mid-21st century.
