A LETTER TO THE EDITOR

 

 

 

Sushma Swaraj breaks the conspiracy of silence

 

 

 

Incensed by the blatant display of defiance, the serial bomb blast, however symbolic they may be, in the two BJP ruled state, within days of BJP’s humiliating defeat in Lok Sabha trust vote, when several of its own members, so famously committed to BJP/RSS Hindutva ideology, defected to UPA side, Sushma Swaraj public statement during a TV interview was long on coming.

 

 

She directly blamed Congress for the bomb blasts in Gujarat. According to reports she alleged that the weekend blasts in Bangalore and Ahmedabad were a conspiracy to divert attention from the ‘cash-for-vote’ scandal. She said: The blasts are a conspiracy to divert attention from the cash-for-vote scandal, claiming that the incidents took place just a few days after the government won the trust vote. With a note of finality she added: “These are not off-the-cuff remarks. I mean what I say.”

 

 

 

Coming from a front-ranking Member of Parliament of the opposition, blaming the ruling Congress party for organizing serial bomb blasts, in two highly industrialized states in India, where BJP is now ruling, it shook the whole political establishment in India. Fresh from the open resort to horse-trading in MPs switching over from various opposition parties, the blame of actually organizing bomb blasts in which Indian citizens were killed and injured is something Congress can hardly stomach lying low. It apparently showed how far the two major political groups have fallen apart in as much as both are blaming each other for high criminal acts of massacres of innocent people through mass murder devices.

 

 

 

However much it may be said, that while both the parties have gone over board in blaming each other, there can be no smoke without fire. Even though the outraged media, from Times of India to Indian Express, Economic Times, Asian Age, Hindustan Times, Free Press Journal, all wrote editorials on the appalling nature of Sushma charges, all their efforts to paper over the crimes of the past, could hardly be suppressed.

 

 

 

In fact, Congress has been widely known in Muslim circles, to be in active collaboration if not actually using RSS cadre, to organize communal riots, targeting Muslims all around the country, throughout the 60 years of independence and even during freedom struggle days. The Rajeshwar Dayal episode is all on record.

 

 

 

The Sushma Swaraj outburst is more credible, as Samajwadi Party has now joined Congress in the new bail out arrangement and the proximity of SIMI to Samajwadi Party who had lifted the ban of them in Uttar Pradesh when they were in power there, could be a new alternative to Hindutva cadre that Congress can now use as muscle power, whenever it may need them. It is this factor that is intensely galling to the BJP. It is the cry of the jilted.

 

 

 

For all practical purpose, the war on India that Narendra Modi, has spoken about has turned into a civil war and common people will be mute victims of the spectacular changes in Indian polity from now on, much more bloody, much more ruinous, much more divisive than India has seen in the past. As they say, chickens have come home to roost.

WARNINGS TO EAST, CULLED FROM WESTERN SOURCES

 

IS INDIA OF MANMOHAN SINGH AND SONIA GANDHI PREPARED FOR 2009?

 

 

“Zionism is but an incident of a far reaching plan,” said leading American Zionist Louis Marshall, counsel for bankers Kuhn Loeb in 1917: “It is merely a convenient peg on which to hang a powerful weapon.”

 

The far-reaching plan is Illuminati world dictatorship. The Illuminati is the highest echelon of Freemasonry, an occult secret society dedicated to Lucifer. The world’s central bankers have intermarried with the richest dynastic families of Europe and America to bring about world hegemony. They instigated wars and depressions to degrade and destroy humanity. The American people have been financing their wars since 1914.

 

“The Jewish people as a whole will become its own Messiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship. In this New World Order the [alleged] “children of Israel” will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands.” -Baruch Levy, Letter to Karl Marx, ‘La Revue de Paris’, p.574, June 1, 1928

Decision Time

 

 

I promised my long time readers and my friends who knew me even before the Internet to issue warnings before World War III starts and the Next Great Depression begins. I am now saying it is nearly certain there will be a Hyperinflationary worldwide Great Depression in the first 6 months of 2009 that will be far worse than 1929-1939. World War III will also start next year at about the same time.

 

 

In a previous essay I mentioned that Dick Cheney had warned the Saudis in March to expect nuclear fallout from Day One of the forthcoming attack on Iran. Recently Josh Bolton, the Neocon former UN ambassador appointed by President Bush said that the air assault on Iran would take place after our November 2008 elections. And even more recently Israel has promised to wait until 2009 to launch World War III by attacking Iran. And even President Bush has issued a warning to Israel not to attack Iran. This is an amazing turn of events from the daily threats we had been reading for the past few years. We know peace is not their goal. The Bush administration is continuing their covert war against Iran and has a 400 million appropriation which was approved even by House and Senate Democrats.

 

 

I believe this decision to delay WW III until 2009 is part of a strategy formulated most likely by the powerful Bilderberg Society Steering Committee even prior to their most recent meeting in Chantilly Virginia. The Steering Committee decides the agenda before the annual meetings at which the attendees discuss selected issues until they reach a consensus. The Bilderberg Society represents the interests of the Rockefellers, the Rothschilds, the largest international banks, select law firms, a handful of career central bankers, diplomats and the politicians the Society trusts to do their will. Paul Wolfowitz, Ben Bernanke, Henry Kissinger, Hillary Clinton, Tony Blair and Prime Minister Harper of Canada are Bilderbergers.

 

http://jahtruth. <http://jahtruth.net/politics.htm&gt; net/politics Htm

 

 

The top 300 banks launder 500 billion dollars a year in political bribes. They also launder over a trillion dollars a year in drug money and about 400 billion dollars a year in illegal weapons. They and their friends are also allowed to steal an estimated 200 billion dollars a year from unaudited federal government contracts. No American politician of note has claimed the right to demand the books be audited to save the taxpayers some 4 billion dollars a week

 

 

I believe the Bilderbergers have decided that the original plan for World War III was a disaster and needed to be modified. Make no mistake. The Bilderbergers do not fight wars themselves. The last Rothschild to die in a war was killed in the British siege of Jerusalem in 1919 while he was foolishly parading around on a highly visible white horse. When Bilderbergers plan a war, they are interested in finessing a political solution. They have concluded that a Great Hyperinflationary Depression will begin in the spring of 2009. They are busy cannibalizing existing companies such as, Bear Stearns, and seizing the remaining assets for themselves. They are creating tens of billions of dollars in new credits at their central banks to buy worthless defaulted investments from the likes of Bear Stearns so those doing the cannibalizing will survive the looming economic collapse.

 

When the dollar collapses, they will use the media they control to convince the voters that our pain was created by the Muslims who charged them too much for oil. Their plan is to box the voters into a corner where the only solution that makes sense to them is a genocidal war against 1.3 billion Muslims.

 

 

It should be noted that the Bilderbergers and the Zionists do want Americans to fight a suicidal and genocidal war against the Muslims but they do not want either the Muslims or the Americans to win World War III. The American people are to be permanently impoverished. The Mideast oil is to belong to the Zionists and the Bilderbergers. America is to cease to exist as a sovereign nation. A war against Iran and a cut off of Persian Gulf oil will send the price of oil to $600 or even $800 a barrel. China and Japan will refuse to loan us the money to buy our oil on credit. They can afford to buy oil even at $800 a barrel with the two trillion dollars in surplus cash they earned selling cars, toys, clothes and electronics to American consumers.

 

Americans will have to cut their consumption of gasoline, fuel oil and diesel in half. America will grind to a halt. Bringing America to its knees is one half of the Bilderberg goal for WW III.

 

 

A Zionist “friend” of mine told me recently that they have studied the situation and have concluded that they could get really good control of America if they just arrested 100,000 people. Some people in the resistance are too well known to be arrested though their access to the media and to the Internet would be eliminated. The second level of resistance to the New World Order is where the real action will be happening. I have heard Zionists many times say that they would go for the leaders first especially the intelligent ones. They have made lists of intelligent, honest, Americans who cannot be bought, compromised or intimidated. These will be among the first to be arrested. But the majority of the first wave of 100,000 men and women to be sent to the concentration camps will be the Muslims as the next war is to be a genocidal war against the world’s 1.3 billion followers of Mohammed or at least those who either have oil or live adjacent to nations with oil wells.

 

 

I told my Zionist friend that the arrest of 100,000 civilians within the borders of the U.S. will only be the down payment. In the very near future every day of every year Americans will disappear into secret prisons if you let the Bilderbergers and the Zionists get their way.

 

 

This essay is entitled Decision Time for a reason. We have five to twelve months remaining until the concentration camps open for business and Americans are incarcerated without trial and with neither lawyers nor the Bill of Rights to protect them. Now is the time for you to decide if you will resist and what you will do if you decide to just say no to fascism. Now is the time to decide whether or not it might be better for you to relocate to a safer place even if it is overseas. Next year I promise you will be too late to decide anything for yourself. All decisions will be made for you.

 

 

This is your Year of Decision. The other major decision facing you is this: what will you do to guarantee that you survive the coming economic collapse.

 

Several years ago I predicted that the dollar would collapse by 12-31-2009. I said that your after tax real wages will be cut 50% and that pensions and savings will be cut 90%. I now have refined my original prediction and zeroed in on the first half of 2009 as being when the dollar dies. Home foreclosures plus high oil and utility prices will make this a very bad Christmas for retailers. Construction, auto and retail workers will be laid off. The working poor will be unable to pay their bills in the face of rapidly rising fuel, utility and food costs. Logic dictates to me that prices have to increase 1,000% to cancel the bad debts created by the banks.

 

But intuition tells me prices will go up 3,000% and very soon.

 

 

Savings and fixed pensions will approach zero value. There are 43,000,000 people on social security and disability. Social Security is not in the strict sense a pension. Social security payments are financed from taxes on current wages which will be cut in half in real terms, social security payments and Medicare will also be cut 50%. I calculate that at least 5% of the 43,000,000 social security recipients will have to choose between starvation and suicide. Indira Singh, who has spoken out about the computerized theft of unaudited government spending, has said that the Powers That Be have even been stealing from Social Security by adding phony recipients to the rolls. Ms. Singh has explained how they have administrative level access to the computers at Social Security, Treasury, DOJ, FBI, HUD, NORAD, FAA and even the Congress.

 

 

The Congress and Senate know that your tax money is being stolen but they lack the courage to stop it. And when tens of thousands of our elderly and disabled kill themselves every month your politicians will continue to do nothing. But you knew that they were their politicians and not yours, didn’t you?

 

http://jahtruth. <http://jahtruth.net/freedman.htm&gt;  net/freedman. htm

 

 

The Energy Crisis and the demise of the dollar both of which are to be blamed upon the Muslims was actually planned by the Bilderbergers and their friends long ago. Currently we are importing 4.4 billion barrels of oil at $140 a barrel. We import 60% of our oil so if we increase our population 10% through legal and illegal immigration, we will add 14% to our demand for imported oil. If we have to bid an additional 600 million barrels of oil a year from foreigners who will be buying their petroleum with stronger currencies. We will easily be paying $200 a barrel for 5 billion barrels with a dollar that is considerably weaker than it is today. The next President of the United States will be paying one trillion dollars a year for imported oil on credit.

 

 

Wall Street has known for decades that we were able to double our population without increasing our energy output because we have been printing worthless dollars and have convinced people overseas to exchange them for oil, cars, electronics and everything at Wal-Mart for nothing. But foreigners are increasingly unwilling to accept dollars and the value of the dollar has declined accordingly. Wall Street financiers know money very well so they understand that when the dollar does collapse, you will no longer be able to buy a trillion dollars of oil a year on credit. At that point oil will be so expensive that half of the people in the United States will not be able to buy food and gasoline. That is to say that Wall Street knew your real after-tax wages would be cut by at least 50% when they devised this plan decades ago. I can only conclude that this permanent cut in wages was planned by the Bilderbergers and their friends to enslave Americans. Poor people are easier to control.

 

 

Now is the time to consider what you will do when your wages are cut in half. Now is the time to decide what you will do when your pensions and savings are cut 90%. Now is the time to decide what you will do when Medicare benefits are cut in half. Now is the time to decide what you can do to protect yourself when unemployment approaches 25% like it did in the last Great Depression. Now is the time to decide what you will do when your neighbors demand you feed them and their family.

The Bilderbergers will use the coming economic collapse and war to enslave the people of America. Their brothers at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) have announced they plan to end American sovereignty in 2010 by merging the U.S., Canada and Mexico into a North American Union (NAU). Recently it was leaked that the U.S. and Canada have agreed that in case of civil disturbances in America Canada would be allowed to send troops to occupy American cities. We can logically assume that if Mexico is also a party to the NAU then they can also be expected to occupy our cities in case of civil unrest.

 

http://jahtruth. <http://jahtruth.net/illumin.htm&gt;  net/illumin. htm

 

 

The Bilderbergers and the Zionists are not concerned that a few hundred million people or even a few billion might die in World War III. Nor are they concerned that you might lose your livelihood or even your country.

 

Their war plan is to turn you from a citizen of a republic into a slave of their Empire.

 

http://jahtruth. <http://jahtruth.net/syst.htm&gt;  net/syst. htm

 

 

There are solutions to our problems other than war and a Hyperinflationary Depression. We could stop increasing our population until we have doubled our domestic energy output. We could repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 which at my last calculation required a 759 billion dollar a year subsidy from the taxpayers. We could even demand the right to audit federal spending to save an additional 200 billion dollars a year.

 

http://jahtruth. <http://jahtruth.net/plan.htm&gt;  net/plan. htm

 

 

An adult solution would be to disarm both (counterfeit-) Israel and Iran of nuclear weapons. Mordechai Vanunu told us that (counterfeit-) Israel began the nuclear race in the Mideast when they assassinated President Kennedy 90 days after refusing him permission to inspect their nuclear works at Dimona so (counterfeit-) Israel is not likely to back down now. And Iran sees themselves as the heroes of the revolution that will bring down the Evil Empire of the United States, Great Britain and (counterfeit-) Israel so they are not likely to compromise either. This means war is the only real option unless we the people decide to just say no to (counterfeit-) Israel.

 

http://jahtruth. <http://jahtruth.net/britca.htm&gt;  net/britca. htm

 

 

I feel obliged to emphasize a point from previous essays. The Zionists and the Bilderbergers are not always on the same page. It was the Rothschilds who financed Hitler’s purchase of weapons in 1935 with a loan that was the monetary equivalent 50,000,000 ounces of gold. And in 1995 the Bilderbergers must have pre-approved the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin by the phony Zionists. Rabin was murdered because he opposed getting (counterfeit-) Jewish people killed in a future war. But the Bilderbergers know they need to keep the (counterfeit-) Jewish people around the world in line by placing the Israelis in danger. Barry Chamish, an expert on Rabin’s murder, has proof that the Israeli conspirators even killed Rabin’s wife Leah by deliberately administering the incorrect cancer protocol.

 

 

I should also point out that to those of you who work in the security services that Muslims in America already know that we are headed to war and that they will be rounded up and sent to concentration camps. The Muslims are not leaving the country as would most white people or as the (Counterfeit-) Jews left Germany in the 1930s. The Muslims will stay and fight Evil in their adopted land. There are 4,000,000 Muslims and fewer than 15,000 FBI agents. But this too was planned by the Bilderbergers whose goal is the destruction of America and the permanent enslavement of its former citizens.

 

 

This could very well be your Last Year as a Free Man or Woman, I would urge you to seriously consider what you will do to stop the Bilderbergers, the CFR, the Zionists and their friends from destroying the world we knew and loved.

 

http://jahtruth. <http://jahtruth.net/plan.htm&gt;  net/plan. htm

 

 

It is only if we fail to stop the madness that has gripped our self-appointed leaders that we and the world we loved will survive.

 

 

I should caution you that I am basing my predictions on the statements and behavior of pathological liars and war criminals. They could decide to launch World War III soon after the November elections if they see events spiraling out of their control so you might not even have five months to prepare for the future.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NEW YORK TIMES AND THE TIMES OF INDIA

July 24, 2008

Thursday, July 24, 2008

 

A LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NEW YORK TIMES AND THE TIMES OF INDIA

 

According to MINT, The New York Times, noted in 900-word story that “even after the tortuous road to the nuclear agreement, Indian strategic relationship with the United State remains troubled by several major disagreement, including Indian policy on Iran and Myanmar.”

 

Will the day ever dawn, when The Times of India, runs a similar story, reporting the real sentiment of the people of India with words like:

 

“Even after the tortuous road to the nuclear agreement, Indian strategic relationship with the United State remains troubled by several major disagreement, including US policy on Iran, Myanmar, Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Sudan among several issue centering on war and peace, the role of United Nation, the reshaping of International Monetary Fund and World Bank, the issues of Human Rights of Guantanamo Bay captives and their torture in captivity, et al.”

 

Not till the present oligarchs are roundly defeated and India freed from their stranglehold.

WILL INDIA BECOME A ‘BONDED SLAVE COUNTRY’ OF THE USA?

July 24, 2008

Wednesday, July 23, 2008

 

A LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

 

 

WILL INDIA BECOME A ‘BONDED SLAVE COUNTRY’ OF THE USA?

 

 

It is noteworthy that Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in his tabled speech in the Lok Sabha, complained about his Left coalition partners who supported his minority government for 4 years and two months, that ‘they wanted him to behave as their bonded slave’.

 

 

It is reassuring to his countrymen, that at least the PM knows how it is to be felt like a ‘bonded slave’.

 

 

However, it is strange that he never responded reassuringly to the overwhelming warnings by the people across all political affiliations and even common people, so clearly alerting him to the perception, if not the reality of his acting as a ‘bonded slave’ of US President Bush. He allowed the Iran vote twice, even against strongest public protests; and he sacked his senior ministers with very important portfolios of external affairs and Petroleum ministries, clearly under open US pressure.

 

 

Besides, the whole series of actions focusing on the efforts to conclude an Indo-Pak civilian nuclear deal, underpinned by US legislative constraints on India’s independent foreign policy and its freedom to maintain a credible nuclear deterrent, has been such a secretive and clock and dagger operation, that no one should be blamed for imagining the worst, from such clandestine and/or dictatorial attempts that left the undeniable perception of making India, a ‘bonded slave of the USA.

 

 

To compound the matter, not only he was personally behaving as a bonded slave of a warmonger dictator, with his the comprehensive legislated package that is tagged to the Indo-US civilian nuclear agreement, Prime Minister has made his entire nation as a bonded slave of America.

 

 

Is there some racist connotation to his preference for becoming a ‘bonded slave’ of a white foreign power rather being a bonded slave to his own brown countrymen?

 

 

We cannot discount the fact, that British colonisers had the advantage of their white colour, when they were initially welcomed by the people here; so deeply brainwashed into a servile racist caste hierarchy by the wily high-caste managers.

Horse-trading, the ugly face of Indian democracy

 

Indians and even world over people untiringly keep repeating that India is world’s largest democracy. In numbers game, the fact is true and laudable. It is not easy to manage a billion people of multitude of diversities, trekking to millions of Elections booth across the country, in a ritualistic exercise, to press a button, or cross a ballot paper and come back brandishing an ink mark on one of the middle fingers, proud that they have voted for a democratic government of the country. However, it is thoroughly condemnable that in the backdrop of this almost sacred exercise to seek people’s mandate to govern the country, political groups play the kind of ugly games that can never be in the strictest term of the word, the real essence of democracy. One of the most blatant and brazen acts of the treacherous subversion of democracy, is the popularly known practice of horse-trading. 

 

As the Indian government currently seeking a confidence vote in the lower house, Lok Sabha, the numbers game that will decide if the government survives or is defeated on the floor of the house, will heavily depend on how the managers of the different political parties will be able to buy or entice elected Members of Parliaments to switch sides and vote for or against the motion of confidence. Right from the days of Congress Prime Minister, P. V. Narasimha Rao, who was successful in running a minority government to any length of time, open allegation of cash in suit cases being delivered to prospective clients in opposition camps, are bandied about, though no law enforcing agency, or the media, or the court, or even the common people have bothered to oppose the dirty game, that is a serious blot on the fair name of Indian democracy.

 

It is illegal. It is criminal. It distorts the very mandate of the people. It renders the whole electoral exercise a fraud on the people, by an oligarchic cabal who have cash and other goodies to offer, like party tickets to stand for future elections, a pardon for crimes committed either at investigation stage or under prosecution, a promise for lucrative government contracts, a prestigious post in ceremonial hierarchy of the government, a candidacy for the nearest kin. Since honesty and trust are at a premium, hard cash is the most desired currency in horse-trading. A general impression is that when it comes to money power, nobody can match the resources of the US lobby. Though it is not clear if the money power is not available to other lesser in the pecking order.

 

In his recent birthday celebration bash, the only one of the two Muslim Chief Ministers that Congress has ever appointed in any state of India, Abdur Rehman Antulay publicly declared that his Chief Ministership was sabotaged by a conspiracy of the Right and Left, under the leadership of Indian Express’s late Goenka, who worked on then Congress Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s insecurity by convincing her, that with Arab petro dollar potentially available to an Indian Muslim political leader, Antulay could snatch the Prime Ministership from her. The credibility of this line of argument is confirmed by Indira Gandhi, demoting Abdur Rehman Antulay on trumped up charges of corruption, in which she herself was the motivator. He took the blame at party loyalist, fought law cases for over ten years of his vibrant political life and finally exonerated and restored to Congress cabinet, though at a very low priority post of Minority affairs.

 

The episode clearly points to the potential of money power that can easily destabilize any government of India, if kingmakers with money power, from inside the country, like the corporate robber barons, or from outside the country, like US and Arab oil money power.

 

Investigative journalists sometimes do report proven record of how cash is withdrawn from the banks, how suit-cases are reportedly carried on planes, how they are delivered to the door of the prospective groom or bride, for want of a better term, one can say. But no law enforcing agency dares to take up any action against such brazen-faced subversion of democracy.

 

Even the Chief Election Commission, an independent state institution that is charged with the oversight of the whole election processes all over the country has become so immune to the criminality of the horse-trading that it has never known to have raised even a finger to object to such criminal acts, even in an academic exercise to warn the people. 

 

Right from the start, when the Marxists pulled out of the governing United Progressive Alliance (UPA) coalition on the matter of the one major partner, the Indian National Congress, headed by an old World Bank staffer, doggedly sticking to an agreement with the US President, to sign a comprehensive strategic partnership agreement, with sub-clauses inserted by Congress under Hyde Act, that bind India to a regime, seriously restricting its foreign policy and its freedom to act according to its national address, UPA is desperately trying to conjure up simple majority numbers by luring defecting MPs from other parties or even inviting smaller parties to its new emerging coalition.

 

Samajwadi Party with a substantial chunk of MPs was the first to jump into the fray and junk its membership of another coalition group, the third front, which was being build up as an alternative to the two main Brahmin-led political coalitions. The 3% Brahmins, like the 3% Jews in America, have cleverly used all tricks of the trade to conjure up majorities by demonizing Muslims and making them the common enemy of the ‘Hindus’, and are not being challenged by lower caste groups formed by OBCs and Dalits. Mulayam Singh Yadav of the Samajwadi Party was the most important constituent of the Third Front. However, it is widely reported in media, that under the active backstage-management of his adviser, Amar Singh, a known wheeler-dealer, Mulayam Singh had cut a deal with the governing Congress Party, so that a number of court cases against them will be dropped and they will be given space in coming elections in UP state.

 

Since at a time, he was thick with UP’s Muslim voters and had been staunchly against the extremist fascist Hindutva forces, and even countered Hindutva storm troopers attacking the historical Babri Masjid, by firing in which a number of Karsevaks died, his defection to Congress fold is deeply felt by Muslim voters, as they are thoroughly disgusted over the US role invading Muslim countries and wantonly shedding the blood of hundreds and thousands of innocent civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is this factor that had surfaced in all future calculations, though in the current horse-trading phase, Muslim role is missing at all levels.

 

In technical terms, India was given a choice to opt out the nuclear civilian agreement at the time of its own choosing, but the consequences are so forbidding, that no future government will have any guts to try to get out of the shadow of the US hegemony agenda on Indian’s both internal and external affairs. The US by the very nature of its superpower status, and its overwhelming and unrelenting doggedness to bring India into its fold, in an arrangement, that can only result in India becoming a subservient nation, a dominated nation, a satellite nation.

 

So much for the real worth of India’s democracy!

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE PROSECTOR GENERAL OF THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT AT THE HAGUE

July 20, 2008

Sunday, July 20, 2008

 

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE PROSECTOR GENERAL OF THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT AT THE HAGUE

 

 

TO: The Prosecutor General of the International Criminal Court, Mr. Luis Moreno-Ocampo,

 

The Hague.

 

It is regrettable that International Criminal Court is being exploited for political agenda of some western countries, including the US, UK and Israel, to destabilize a UN member country, Sudan, in order for the western powers to take over the country, either in a conspiracy of regime change or military intervention, under false pretext of the so-called genocide in Darfur. The intention of the western powers is evident from a long series of measures to subjugate Sudan, its people and its resources. The western powers are particularly alarmed that a non-western power, like China and even India, is increasing their stake and cooperation in economic development of Sudan and that is compromising their monopoly of imperialist exploitation of weakly defended third world countries. It will be travesty of justice and a blot on the working of International Criminal Court, if a bigger accused, mainly the person representing the United State of America, President George W. Bush, of genocide in Iraq and Afghanistan, is routinely ignored and allowed to escape the application of international justice over its illegal invasion of Iraq, which Sudan’s President is being held accountable for western provoked violence in parts of a weakly defended country.

 

On behalf of the rest of the world and on behalf of the persecuted people of Africa and the Muslim world, I appeal to you to desist from misusing the offices of the International Criminal Court to further the criminal machinations of some power countries of the western axis.

 

Justice should not only be done, but it should be seen to be done. In this case, your most unwise and motivated move to prosecute the Head of a Third World, African, Muslim country, over blatantly trumped up charge of genocide, would be seen by the world at large as a criminal act of misuse of the powers of International Court of Justice.

 

Save the credibility and trust of the court, by first prosecuting the President of the United State of America, for his illegal invasion of the UN member country of Iraq and the wholesale massacres of Iraqi civilians in aerial bombardment.

A MESSAGE TO INDIAN MUSLIMS: DIVIDE AND RULE

 

 

 

The political turmoil rocking India around the debate on Indo-US civilian nuclear deal, 123 and Hyde Act and the very survival of current coalition government, has suddenly brought out the actual or presumed role of Indian Muslims in general and Muslim voters in particular, in view of the imminent Parliamentary elections, as the main bone of contention between secular and supposedly non-secular forces.

 

 

 

Reviews after reviews, lining up of Muslim voices, editorials and daily bytes on TV channels, does through up a dilemma for Indian Muslims, if this is for the real. However, the national debate around the participation of Muslims as tilting the balance on one side or other, is the result of changing times and the acute polarization within the non-Muslim majority that had publicly marginalized and thrown the 150 million Muslims of India to the dust bin of Indian history and is now forced to court the Muslims as it is apparent they do have a major role to play both, by their verdict on any extension of relations with the US and Israel and by their mass voting potential, as and when the next Parliamentary Elections are held, on their appointed time or even at an earlier date, if Congress and its motley allies, purchased through horse trading, loses its majority in the trust vote in Lok Sabha.

 

 

 

US and Israeli aggression against ‘Muslims’ supported by widely propaganda in Jewish controlled western media and American leadership, demonizing as the very incarnation of the devil, had ensured that Indian Muslims like all fair-minded world communities, have developed a hatred for the US foreign policies in general and the Bush regime in particular.

 

 

 

In Indian context, Indian Muslims have to decide if they respond with that deep ingrained hatred of the US and Israel, or be lured by the goodies promised by the Indo-US civilian nuclear deal. It is a common human trait that hatred works more intensely than love or greed. For those, who are hell bent wasting their time and energy in convincing Indian Muslims, that Indo-US deal is in the interest of the country, are oblivious of the fact that for the community to even consider any interaction with the US and Israel, that hatred had to first be addressed. As it is, Muslims who have been reduced to the bottom of the economic barrel, and go with the poorest of the poor in the country, are convinced that all the so-called progress of the new liberalization and investment driven economic boom, will hardly benefit them. On the contrary they all, the Muslims and others from the poor level of economy, have been hit tremendously hard by the ever increasing inflation, most disproportionately affecting their survival existence.

 

 

 

Muslims have observed how their lowly properties in Nandigram had been expropriated by the CPIM government of West Bengal, without any fair returns to them in any successful venture on their expropriated properties, now being handed over in SEZ to foreign and local industrialists. While real estate prices are skyrocketing, Muslims in Nandigram and Singhur SEZ had been unceremoniously deprived in the share of windfall profits accruing to their expropriated holdings.

 

 

 

Though it must be said, that it was a Marxist politburo member, MK Pandhe, who was the first to warn Samajwadi Party, about the risk of SP losing Muslim vote, if its opportunistically joins Congress in a Muslim hated strategic relationship with the US, that will perpetually bind the nation to a colonized existence. However, other realists soon caught up to the potential of Muslim votes deserting the much celebrated ‘secular’ coalition of political parties that is so disdainful of their most deeply felt hatred against the Muslim demonisers in the US and Israel.

 

 

 

Congress has now hit back on the ganging up of CPIM, the supposedly secular and BJP, the communal Hindutva extremists in one opposition group, apparently joining hands to pull down Congress led UPA coalition government. Muslims should not be hoodwinked by this Congress ploy. As Prakash Karat of CPIM has amply clarified how Congress has been in cahoots with the BJP in pulling down various ‘secular’ governments in the past — that of Charan Singh, V.P. Singh, Dev Gowda and  I. K. Gujral, why should it cry wolf, when the shoe is now on the other foot. In fact, non-Hindutva group is voting not in favour of Hindutva, but against the pseudo-secularist Congress, that had always sold Muslims short.

 

 

 

A new role for Muslims as citizens and as voters is being thrust upon them, and it is an opportunity for them to divide their tormentors and assume a leadership role, at least in giving true nationalist direction to India’s future where the Brahminical conspiracies will be exposed, where all victimized communities will get justice, where the robber barons are forced to abide by the laws of the land and shun corruption and pay back to the nation their ill-gotten wealth, where foreign forces are never allowed to subjugate India once again to be able to suck the blood of the poor and shed the blood of our Jawans.

Washington Post in a manipulative Poll

WASHINGTON POST IN A MANIPULATIVE POLL

Washington Post’s McCain-Friendly Poll
Deceptive question misleads on Iraq position

7/15/08

The Washington Post reported on July 15 that the public is evenly split between Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama’s positions on ending the Iraq War. But the paper arrived at that conclusion based on a deceptively worded poll question.

Under the headline “Poll Finds Voters Split on Candidates’ Iraq-Pullout Positions,” the Post reported that their new poll “finds the country split down the middle between those backing Sen. Barack Obama’s 16-month timeline for withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq and those agreeing with Sen. John McCain’s position that events, not timetables, should dictate when forces come home.”

In the second to last paragraph, the Post noted, “This is the first time the Post/ABC poll has squared the two candidates’ withdrawal plans against each other.” But the question the Post asked did not actually “square” the candidates’ plans; the Post offered a more or less accurate view of Obama’s position, contrasted with a description of McCain’s plan that seemed designed to attract increased support:

Obama has proposed a timetable to withdraw most U.S. forces from Iraq within 16 months of his taking office. McCain has opposed a specific timetable and said events should dictate when troops are withdrawn. Which approach do you prefer–a timetable or no timetable?

The implication, of course, is that Obama favors one sort of withdrawal, while McCain favors another. But that is a misleading characterization of McCain’s position, which can be read at his campaign website:

John McCain believes it is strategically and morally essential for the United States to support the government of Iraq to become capable of governing itself and safeguarding its people. He strongly disagrees with those who advocate withdrawing American troops before that has occurred.

 

It would be a grave mistake to leave before Al-Qaeda in Iraq is defeated and before a competent, trained and capable Iraqi security force is in place and operating effectively.

McCain added:

Our goal is an Iraq that can stand on its own as a democratic ally and a responsible force for peace in its neighborhood. Our goal is an Iraq that no longer needs American troops. And I believe we can achieve that goal, perhaps sooner than many imagine. But I do not believe that anyone should make promises as a candidate for President that they cannot keep if elected.

From his own campaign statements, withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq would not seem to be a high priority for McCain, who has often stressed the need to “win” the Iraq War. Though he has cautioned against making predictions, McCain has said he believes victory will come by the end of his first term: “By January 2013, America has welcomed home most of the servicemen and women who have sacrificed terribly so that America might be secure in her freedom. The Iraq War has been won,” McCain explained in a May 15 speech. Asked about his position later that day, McCain elaborated (Associated Press, 5/15/08): “It’s not a timetable; it’s victory. It’s victory, which I have always predicted. I didn’t know when we were going to win World War II; I just knew we were going to win.”

But even “victory” would not necessarily mean withdrawal for McCain; he has said that he would be happy with a 100-year military presence in Iraq (Think Progress, 1/4/08):

As long as Americans are not being injured or harmed or wounded or killed, it’s fine with me and I hope it would be fine with you if we maintain a presence in a very volatile part of the world where Al-Qaeda is training, recruiting, equipping and motivating people every single day.

The Post could have presented the issue the way other recent polls have done:

CNN (6/26-6/29/08)

“If you had to choose, would you rather see the next president keep the same number of troops in Iraq that are currently stationed there, or would you rather see the next president remove most U.S. troops in Iraq within a few months of taking office?”

Keep same number: 33 percent
Remove most: 64 percent

–Pew Research Center (6/18-6/29/08):

“Do you think the U.S. should keep military troops in Iraq until the situation has stabilized, or do you think the U.S. should bring its troops home as soon as possible?”

Keep in Iraq until stabilized: 43 percent
Bring home as soon as possible: 52 percent

Time (6/18-6/25/08):

“Do you believe that the United States should bring most of the troops home from Iraq in the next year or two, or should the U.S. wait until Iraq is relatively stable, even if it takes four years or more?”

In next year or two: 56 percent
Wait until stable: 39 percent

Or the Post could have used language similar to its own previous Iraq poll (6/12-15/08):

“Do you think the United States should keep its military forces in Iraq until civil order is restored there, even if that means continued U.S. military casualties; OR, do you think the United States should withdraw its military forces from Iraq in order to avoid further U.S. military casualties, even if that means civil order is not restored there?”

Keep forces: 41 percent
Withdraw forces: 55 percent

Any of these formulations would be a more honest way of describing McCain’s actual view on the war. Instead, the Post seemed to prefer framing the issue in a way that seemed to validate the media’s position that withdrawing from Iraq any time soon is irresponsible (Extra!, 11-12/07).

ACTION:
Ask the Washington Post why it asked a misleading poll question about Obama and McCain’s positions on the Iraq War.

IS PRIME MINISTER MANMOHAN SINGH AMERICA’S ECONOMIC HIT MAN IN INDIA?

July 15, 2008

IS PRIME MINISTER MANMOHAN SINGH AMERICA’S ECONOMIC HIT MAN IN INDIA?

 

In the run up to a confidence vote on the survival of UPA coalition government in India, the whole record of Prime Minister’s a decade old performance seem to be reaching a point of climax, when he gets to sign the final deal of civilian nuclear deal with the US administration, head by the lame duck US President, George W. Bush.

 

At this stage, it will be proper, nay incumbent on all who care for India, its freedom, integrity, its future prosperity, be they the politicians, media people or common well-wisher to read and absorb, the contents of the New York Times bestseller book: Confessions of an economic hit man, written by John Perkins and published in 2004. It is not a fiction novel. In fact, it is the true story of a flesh and blood individual who had a live conscience to expose the most heinous criminal policies widely practiced by his own country, the USA.

 

Like our Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, John Perkins, too was an economic expert, though the career and mission of both seem to be overlapping, at least at first look. The standard pattern of US strategies to control and exploit victimized nation, may differ from country to country and given different parameters of American interest involved.

 

But the fact that India is a target nation and with due respect to our Prime Minister’s commitment to his nation and its people and the future of the whole subcontinent, he is probably unaware that he is a prime candidate for the epitaph of an American Hit Man in India, once the role of assessing his career goes to the current or future historians.

 

An account in WIKIPEDIA writes:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confessions_of_an_Economic_Hit_Man

 

 

Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Confessions of an Economic Hit Man (ISBN 0-452-28708-1) is a book written by John Perkins and published in 2004. It tells the story of his career with consulting firm Chas. T. Main.

Before employment with the firm, he interviewed for a job with the National Security Agency (NSA). Perkins claims that this interview effectively constituted an independent screening which led to his subsequent hiring by Einar Greve, a member of the firm (and alleged NSA liaison) to become a self-described “Economic Hit Man.”

 

According to his book, Perkins’ function was to convince the political and financial leadership of underdeveloped countries to accept enormous development loans from institutions like the World Bank and USAID. Saddled with huge debts they could not hope to pay, these countries were forced to acquiesce to political pressure from the United States on a variety of issues. Perkins argues in his book that developing nations were effectively neutralized politically, had their wealth gaps driven wider and economies crippled in the long run. In this capacity Perkins recounts his meetings with some prominent individuals, including Graham Greene and Omar Torrijos. Perkins describes the role of an EHM as follows:

 

Economic hit men (EHMs) are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. They funnel money from the World Bank, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign “aid” organizations into the coffers of huge corporations and the pockets of a few wealthy families who control the planet’s natural resources. Their tools included fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder. They play a game as old as empire, but one that has taken on new and terrifying dimensions during this time of globalization.

 

The epilogue to the 2006 edition provides a rebuttal to the current move by the G8 nations to forgive Third World debt. Perkins charges that the proposed conditions for this debt forgiveness require countries to sell their health, education, electric, water and other public services to corporations. Those countries would also have to discontinue subsidies and trade restrictions that support local business, but accept the continued subsidization of certain G8 businesses by the US and other G8 countries, and the erection of trade barriers on imports that threaten G8 industries.

 

Controversy and criticism

 

Perkins’s first boss at Chas. T. Main, Einar Greve, initially declared to journalists that “basically [Perkins’s] story is true” and that “what John’s book says is, there was a conspiracy to put all these countries on the hook, and that happened.” [1] Subsequently, he denied Perkins’s allegation that he ever worked as a liaison with the NSA and contradicted other claims made in Perkins’s book, stating that Perkins “has convinced himself that a lot of this stuff is true.”[1] Perkins comments on Greve’s change of heart in the “Epilogue” of “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.” He points out that Greve initially supported the truth of the book, only to switch his opinion several months later. Perkins suggests that Greve was pressured by outside forces to denounce the book as false.

 

Some of the book’s critics have questioned whether Perkins makes a significant contribution to the debate on global finance and the development of the Third World. For instance, columnist Mark Engler of In These Times, has written that “the actual content of Perkins’ admissions proves distressingly thin.”[2]

According to the New York Times, “the book’s popularity seems driven more by the mix of cloak-and-dagger atmospherics and Mr. Perkins’s Damascene conversion” than by insight into “the larger issue of America’s role in emerging economies.”[3]

 

Columnist Sebastian Mallaby of the Washington Post reacted sharply to Perkins’ book [4]: “This man is a frothing conspiracy theorist, a vainglorious peddler of nonsense, and yet his book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, is a runaway bestseller.” Mallaby, who spent 13 years writing for the London Economist and wrote a critically well-received biography of World Bank chief James Wolfensohn,[2] holds that Perkins’ conception of international finance is “largely a dream” and that his “basic contentions are flat wrong.”[4] For instance he points out that Indonesia reduced its infant mortality and illiteracy rates by two-thirds after economists persuaded its leaders to borrow money in 1970. He also disputes Perkins’ claim that 51 of the top 100 world economies belong to companies. A value-added comparison done by the UN, he says, shows the number to be 29.

 

Other sources, including articles in the New York Times and Boston Magazine, as well as a press release issued by the United States Department of State, have referred to a lack of documentary or testimonial evidence to corroborate the claim that the NSA was involved in his hiring to Chas T. Main. In addition, the author of the State Department release states that the NSA “is a cryptological (codemaking and codebreaking) organization, not an economic organization” and that its missions do not involve “anything remotely resembling placing economists at private companies in order to increase the debt of foreign countries.”[5]

 

Critics, including Sebastian Mallaby and the State Department, have also referred to public remarks Perkins has made, as well as previously published books. His published works include books about South American tribal culture that deal with shamanistic techniques for creating self-empowerment, techniques to enhance health and longevity, as well as first hand accounts of metaphysical “travelling” through visions & dream wanderings.[3] Mark Engler questions Perkins’s “New Age leanings,” and accuses him of “delving into a type of essentialism that, thankfully, has been long banished from university anthropology departments.”

 

The State Department release refers to a presentation at a bookstore, where Perkins allegedly asserted that the US Government was involved in the assassinations of John and Robert F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., John Lennon and several US senators who died in plane crashes, and expressed concern regarding alleged inconsistencies in the US investigation of the events surrounding the September 11 attacks of 2001. The State Department release therefore identifies Perkins as a conspiracy theorist. In the book, however, Perkins repeatedly emphasizes that the dynamics he describes are systemic and specifically not the result of conspiracy:

 

“Although unconscious, deceived, and—in many cases—self-deluded, these players were not members of any clandestine conspiracy; rather, they were the product of a system that promotes the most subtle and effective form of imperialism the world has ever witnessed.”

The game plan for the Economic Hit Man, is clear. He/She has to work for the US with an agenda, which can never be a win-win situation for both, the US and the victim country; in our case: India. India has to lose for the US to win. The whole façade of helping out India has to be looked into seriously by neutral observers in India, who do not hold brief for special interests.

 

The time is of essence and now that the signing of the strategic partnership agreement with the US has become the benchmark for the very survival of the ruling coalition government, the priority of saving of the government has become an automatic approval of the controversial deal with the US.

 

Such railroading of complicated issues must be stopped and politicians who are now more concerned about the sharing of power, should be made aware of the sinister nature of US economic hegemony over India, as a client state. And this is nothing to do with ideology, religion, region, ethnicity, caste and class. If the nation suffers, everybody suffers.

THE OPEN CONSPIRACY TO SILENCE INDIAN MUSLIMS

July 12, 2008

 

Saturday, July 12, 2008

 

THE OPEN CONSPIRACY TO SILENCE INDIAN MUSLIMS

 

The instant CPI (M)’s senior politburo member, M. K. Pandhe, came out with his warning to Samajwadi Party against joining the Man Mohan Singh bandwagon, lest they lose their ‘Muslim voters’ in the coming elections, both media and politicians of the pseudo-secular joined forces with the Hindutva parivar to treat the use of the very ‘word’ Muslim as communal, if not high treason.

 

The very next day both ‘The Times of India’ and ‘The Indian Express’ editorials were seething with anger over the gross indiscretion of Marxist leader to bring in Muslim factor in national discourse. It would appear as if the 150 million Muslims of India have no stake, no voice, no concern with their own country’s most vital interests and the selling of their countries freedom and independence to a bunch of notorious foreign powers, whose designs on weaker nations is too obvious to be so callously ignored, while ill-advised leaders of Sonia Congress are pushing the nation into a future of wars and strife.

 

It is regrettable that under the force of such adverse communal demonizing of potential Muslim role in Indian politics, some Ulema groups went defensive and declared that ‘we Muslims’ do not have anything to do with the government decision on Indo-US nuclear deal. That is the power of aggressive communal propaganda. However, saner minds started questioning the line of argument, as if being Muslim in India was some crime and to push any line of thinking by Muslims, even with best of interest of their nation at heart is communal and anti-national. Indian Muslims are full citizens of this beloved nation of India and have every right to hold and give their own independent opinion on national affairs, with whatever degree of clout they can muster to freely influence democratic political decision making.

 

As a matter of fact, Muslims do have a very important role to develop their own line of thinking, in as much as they find that the ‘Hindutva’ line of thinking developed over the time has been markedly tainted with communal and anti-Muslim content. The Hindutva Brahminical adopting of Israel and America, as their preferred partners, has been motivated primarily as a reaction to their animosity to Muslims. The choice of Israel as the new supplier of security and intelligence products to India was primarily made as a reaction to the internal anti-Muslim propaganda unleashed by the communal Hindutva forces. Israel as an enemy of Muslim Arab is the most suitable ally of the Hindutva and Brahminical worldview. There are no other merits needed as long as Israel remains a sworn enemy of the Muslim Arabs. India’s skewed foreign policy, keeping the Arab world at arms lengths at the cost of even India’s most vital economic interests, is directly motivated by ‘hate Muslim’ content of India’s internal politics.

 

Just this week, the most audacious suicide attack on Indian Embassy in Kabul is proof enough that the foreign affair policy makers are heavily under pressure from the US and its allies, to push India into a very dangerous area of civil war that India cannot hope to come out unscathed. The quagmire of Afghanistan and its border with Pakistan is sure to drag India into a future of constant upheaval. Indian administration cannot fool the people, by giving out all manner of concocted good face on its ‘constructive’ engagement in Afghanistan.

 

Indian people are not geared for any misadventure of the international kind on its borders, in which the Manmohan Singh Government is dragging it, under US and Israeli prodding. The very Idea of India is against such foreign misadventures and is certainly against the very ethos of Indian society.

 

In practical terms, India is not ready for another Kandahar like exchange of terrorists with its citizens in war zones of US operations, and sooner or later, most probably sooner than later, Indian government will realize the folly of succumbing to US pressures to increase its exposure in Afghanistan and will be forced by events to withdraw from the war torn area.

 

Regrettably, the hallmark of Manmohan Singh government is to make private deals that could mortgage India’s long term future, its freedom and independence to foreign imperialist forces whose historical record, immediate past and immediate present, leaves no doubt that India will be eventually mauled very severely by its association with the western warmongers.

 

Those who have even a rudimentary grasp of world affairs cannot ignore the stark fact that there is a serious fault line between US/Israel/UK with their reluctant NATO partners on the one side and the rest of world that includes Russia, China and India on the other side.

 

America and Israel’s relentless and unceasing efforts to subjugate rest of nations that happen to populate between the so-called East and West, and make an eventual move against China in particular, will certainly force a fence-sitting India to choose between West and East, through applying means fair and foul, and through carrot and stick strategies.

 

The present government and even the whole of political class, so deeply mired in political corruption of loot of national wealth, is hardly seized of the natural and most obvious consequences of any teaming up with the US/Israel/UK axis, much less interested in taking the people of India into any confidence.

 

The abuse of executive powers by both BJP and Sonia Congress to rush head over heels to conclude a strategic partnership with the warmongering imperial forces, is a clear sign that this government will not bother to debate the issues in public forums and seek the express approval of the people of India, to such monumental paradigm shift in independent India’s blind commitment to war games of the US/Israel/UK.

 

In fact, India is being hijacked by an oligarchy of Brahminical overlords that treat rest of people of India, including Muslims as their vassals.

 

It is this arrogance of power that had forced the media and various political groups to be incensed at the very mention of a ‘Muslim’ view on India’s dealings with the US.

 

There certainly seems to be a conspiracy to silence Muslims of India to raise any voice against the rape of their country. Muslims had fought the first wars of independence by shedding blood in all theaters of engagements and it is natural that they will be called upon to fight another war of independence to free the India of the future from the stranglehold of the neo-imperialists.

 

So those who treat Muslim role as communalizing India’s foreign policies are themselves playing communal games that are blinding them from consequences of sleeping with the enemy that is stalking our national sovereignty and integrity. Muslims should be proud to be part of the alliance that opposes the wholesale subjugation of our nation. Though the Left has its own political reasons to oppose selling of India to foreigners, in as much as they are boldly and courageously exposing the almost dictatorial and herd mentality of the opportunist political groups, they are saviors of the nation.

 

The move to offer strategic partnership to India is fraught with deception and fraud. India should not trust America, Israel and UK axis, as they are all out to strictly follow the neo-con blueprint of shaping a New World Order, that has no place for India except as a mercenary power base to offer the blood of its Jawans to fight proxy war on behalf of the Axis conspirators.

 

Some Urdu language commentators had tried to make out that Muslims are only wary of President Bush and not averse to America as a nation. These analysts are oblivious to the ground realities prevailing in the US, where the neo-con American Jews have fully laid down long term US foreign policy parameters and departure of Bush would not change the essence of imperialist nature of America’s relationship with other nations. There may be change of style with the new US administrations, but the content will remain as antagonist and exploitative as the Neo-Con laid out plans for New American Century. Its recommended use of American fire power, in conjunction with its allies will remain unchanged. It will be great folly for the victims to try to search for the some chink in the armor of their tormentors and lay back. Indian people should be made aware of the notorious nature of US and Israel designs on India and it will be the duty of Indian Muslims, that they should speak out, even at the cost of their being branded as communal, as long as their line of thinking saves the nation from a calamitous future.
