The Nazis & The Bush family

Since 911 I've written several pieces comparing the WTC
to the Reichstag fire, and comparing the Homeland
Security measures to Hitler's fascism-enabling
legislation.  We might also add that Hitler was
preparing to launch major military offensives, and that
his favorite form of warfare was Blitzkrieg - again the
parallels are striking.

But I stopped short of suggesting that Bush is in fact
a Fascist with a capital F, or that 911 and its
aftermath was EXPLICITLY a recreation of the events of
1933.  I don't stop short any more. Not after reading
the reports below.

We learn the extent to which Prescott Bush (the
Grandad) collaborated with the Nazis, and how Auswitz
was set up partly to provide slave labor for his
operations in Poland.  These revelations are more
shocking than I suspected they might be.  But what we
learn below is not limited to history half a century

Fascism is alive and well in Washington and has been
for some time.  Eugenics and population control are
part of the picture.  The reports do not talk about
things like the effects of depleted uranium, of
IMF-imposed genocide, or of the sanctions in Iraq -- but
keep them in mind as you read.  Auswitz was 1940s
technology; today they have more subtle methods of mass
killing.  And of course they have more gross methods as
well, with their cruise missiles and super-high

It's time to wake up.


Standing on the Dead

    "What luck for the rulers that men do not think."
    --Adolf Hitler

In October of 1942, under the Trading With the Enemy
Act, the U.S. government halted operations at New
York's Union Banking Corporation. A bank official was
charged with "Running Nazi front groups in the United
States." His name: Prescott Bush.

Prescott Bush, father of future U.S President George
Herbert Walker Bush and grandfather of George W. Bush,
had been hard at work on behalf of his Nazi partners.
In flagrant violation of U.S. law, Prescott Bush had
worked tirelessly to launder money, procure raw
materials, arrange transportation and provide guidance
for the Nazi war effort and the German army he had
helped to build.

In April of 2002, George W. Bush -- standing literally
on the bones of the men who fell at Normandy beachhead
in mortal combat with that very same Nazi army --
delivered his Memorial Day address. He said, in part,
"This is a day our country has set apart to remember
what was gained in our wars, and all that was lost."

Let us remember.

    As the German army came crashing into Poland, spreading
    death and destruction in its path, Prescott Bush
    continued aiding the Nazis.
    As German tanks rolled through the Ardennes Forest and
    into Paris, Prescott Bush continued aiding the Nazis.
    As Allied forces fighting to defend France were forced
    literally into the sea at Dunkirk by the German Army,
    Prescott Bush continued aiding the Nazis.
    As German war planes rained bombs down on London,
    killing 50 thousand English men, women and children,
    Prescott Bush continued aiding the Nazis.
    As millions died at the hands of the most ruthless and
    violent organization the world has ever known, Prescott
    Bush continued aiding them.
    And of course, as Hitler and the Nazis planned and
    carried out the extermination of Europe's Jews,
    Prescott Bush was an eager and active partner.
    When did Bush stop? When we made him stop.
    In this case, George W. Bush won't have to worry about
    the US Government shutting him down. That's been taken
    care of -- he is the US Government.

As debate rages back and forth across the Atlantic over
the morality and acceptability of this assault against
Iraq, it is interesting to note the German position. It
was Germany who bought most completely into the war lie
during the past century. It was the German people who,
with their faith in country and leadership, and even
their loyalty to the Fatherland, made possible the
greatest nightmare the world has ever known.

It is those same German people who stand today before
Europe and the world in unflinching opposition to this
latest world conquering force. How well do the German
people know George W. Bush? Better than they want to.

The Bush Nazi Connection :
Gold Fillings, Auschwitz & George Bush :
1940s: Business As Usual

Consolidated Silesian Steel Corporation was located
near the Polish town of Oswiecim, one of Poland's
richest mineral regions. That was where Hitler set up
the Auschwitz concentration camp. When the plan to work
Soviet prisoners fell through, the Nazis transferred
Jews, communists, gypsies and other minority
populations to the camp. The prisoners of Auschwitz who
were able to work were shipped to 30 different

One of the companies was the vast Consolidated Silesian
Steel Corporation. "Nobody's made the connection before
between Consolidated Silesian Steel Corporation,
Auschwitz and Prescott Bush," John Loftus told Clamor.
"That was the reason why Auschwitz was built there. The
coal deposits could be processed into either coal or
additives for aviation gasoline."

Even though Thyssen and Flick's Consolidated Steel was
in their possession, Hit ler's invasions across Europe
spooked them, bringing back memories of World War I.
Thyssen and Flick sold Consolidated Steel to UBC. Under
the complete control of Harriman and management of
Bush, the company became Silesian American Corporation
which became part of UBC and Harriman's portfolio of 15
corporations. Thyssen quickly moved to Switzerland and
later France to hide from the terror about to be
unleashed by the Nazi war machine he had helped build.

A portion of the slave labor force in Poland was
"managed by Prescott Bush," according to a Dutch
intelligence agent. In 1941, slave labor had become the
lifeblood of the Nazi war machine. The resources of
Poland's rich steel and coal field played an essential
part in Hitler's invasion of Europe.

According to Higham, Hitler and the Fraternity of
American businessmen "not only sought a continuing
alliance of interests for the duration of World War II,
but supported the idea of a negotiated peace with
Germany that would bar any reorganization of Europe
along liberal lines. It would leave as its residue a
police state that would place the Fraternity in postwar
possession of financial, industrial, and political

Six days after Pearl Harbor and the US declaration of
war at the end of 1941, President Franklin D.
Roosevelt, Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau
and US Attorney General Francis Biddle signed the
Trading With the Enemy Act, which banned any business
interests with US enemies of war. Prescott Bush
continued with business as usual, aiding the Nazi
invasion of Europe and supplying resources for weaponry
that would eventually be turned on American solders in
combat against Germany.

On October 20, 1942, the U.S. government had had enough
of Prescott Bush and his Nazi business arrangements
with Thyssen. Over the summer, The New York Tribune had
exposed Bush and Thyssen, whom the Tribune dubbed
"Hitler's Angel." When the US government saw UBC's
books, they found out that Bush's bank and its
shareholders "are held for the benefit of ... members
of the Thyssen family, [and] is property of nationals
... of a designated enemy country." The list of seven
UBC share holders was:

    E. Roland Harriman - 3991 shares
    Cornelis Lievense - 4 shares
    Harold D.Pennington - 1 share
    Ray Morris-- 1 share
    Prescott S. Bush - 1 share
    H.J. Kouwenhoven - 1 share
    Johann G. Groeninger - 1 share.
The UBC books also revealed the myriad of money and
holding companies funneled from the Thyssens and the
government realized UBC was just the tip of the
iceberg. On November 17, 1942, The US government also
took over the Silesian American Corporation, but did
not prosecute Bush for the reasons Higham noted

The companies were allowed to operate within the
Government Alien Property custodian office with a catch
- no aiding the Nazis. In 1943, while still owning his
stock, Prescott Bush resigned from UBC and even helped
raise money for dozens of war- related causes as
chairman of the National War Fund.

After the war, the Dutch government began investigating
the whereabouts of some jewelry of the Dutch royal
family that was stolen by the Nazis. They started
looking into books of the Bank voor Handel en
Scheepvaart. When they discovered the transaction
papers of the Silesian American Corporation, they began
asking the bank manager H.J. Kounhoven a lot of
questions. Kouwenhoven was shocked at the discovery and
soon traveled to New York to inform Prescott Bush.
According to Dutch intelligence, Kouwenhoven met with
Prescott soon after Christmas, 1947. Two weeks later,
Kouwenhoven apparently died of a heart attack.

1950s: Bush Sells UBC Stock

By 1948, Fritz Thyssen's life was in ruins. After being
jailed by the Nazis, he was jailed by the Allies and
interrogated extensively, but not completely, by US
investigators. Thyssen and Flick were ordered to pay
reparations and served time in prison for their
atrocious crimes against humanity.

On February 8, 1951, Fritz Thyssen died bitterly in
Argentina at the age of 78. Thyssen was angry at the
way he was treated by Europe after the war and how
history would remember him as Hitler's most important
and prominent financier. When Thyssen died, the Alien
Property Custodian released the assets of the Union
Banking Corporation to Brown Brothers Harriman. The
remaining stockholders cashed in their stocks and
quietly liquidated the rest of UBC's blood money.

Prescott Bush received $1.5 million for his share in
UBC. That money enabled Bush to help his son, George
Herbert Walker Bush, to set up his first royalty firm,
Overby Development Company, that same year. It was also
helpful when Prescott Bush left the business world to
enter the public arena in 1952 with a successful
senatorial campaign in Connecticut. On October 8th,
1972, Prescott Bush died of cancer and his will was
enacted soon after.

In 1980, when George H.W. Bush was elected vice
president, he placed his father's family inherence in a
blind trust. The trust was managed by his old friend
and quail hunting partner, William "Stamps" Farish III.
Bush's choice of Farish to manage the family wealth is
quite revealing in that it demonstrates that the former
president might know exactly where some of his
inheritance originated. Farish's grandfather, William
Farish Jr., on March 25th, 1942, pleaded "no contest"
to conspiring with Nazi Germany while president of
Standard Oil in New Jersey. He was described by Senator
Harry Truman in public of approaching "treason" for
profiting off the Nazi war machine.

Standard Oil, invested millions in IG Farben, who
opened a gasoline factory within Auschwitz in 1940. The
billions "Stamps" inherited had more blood on it then
Bush, so the paper trail of UBC stock would be safe
during his 12 years in presidential politics. It has
been 60 years since one of the great money laundering
scandals of the 20th century ended and only now are we
beginning to see the true historical aspects of this
important period of world history, a history that the
remaining Holocaust survivors beg humanity to "never

Loftus believes history will view Prescott Bush as
harshly as Thyssen. "It is bad enough that the Bush
family helped raise the money for Thyssen to give
Hitler his start in the 1920s, but giving aid and
comfort to the enemy in time of war is treason. The
Bush bank helped the Thyssens make the Nazi steel that
killed Allied solders. As bad as financing the Nazi war
machine may seem, aiding and abetting the Holocaust was
worse. Thyssen's coal mines used Jewish slaves as if
they were disposable chemicals. There are six million
skeletons in the Thyssen family closet, and a myriad of
criminal and historical questions to be answered about
the Bush family's complicity."

There is no question that the Bush family needs to
donate at least $1.5 million to the proper holocaust
reparation fund. Since Prescott Bush is dead, the only
way to compensate is for the main inheritors of his
estate to make amends with surviving slaves and the
families of slaves who died in Bush and Thyssen's coal
mines. If the Bush family refuses to contribute the
money to compensate for Prescott Bush's involvement in
the Holocaust, it is like denying the Holocaust itself
and their role in one of the darkest moments in world

Why has Presidential candidate George W. Bush been able
to raise uncounted tens of millions of dollars? It
can't be because of his positions on the issues; he has
scrupulously avoided taking many. It can't be because
of his knowledge of world events; he thinks being asked
such questions is a trick." (He will embarrassingly
lie, saying that he knows the answer to a question, and
half a sentence later admit that he doesn't.) No,
George "I'm No Longer Drunk" Bush's support is because
the Bush family fortune is old, and it's big, and comes
from a century old alliance with the most powerful
interests on Wall Street and in industry. Worse, part
of Dub-a-Ya's money comes from grandfather Prescott
Bush's financial alliance with the Nazis.

On October 20, 1942, the US Alien Property Custodian,
under the "Trading With the Enemy Act," seized the
shares of the Union Banking Corporation (UBC), of which
Prescott Bush was a director and shareholder. The
largest shareholder was E. Roland

Harriman. (Bush was also the managing partner of Brown
Brothers Harriman, a leading Wall Street investment
firm.) The UBC was established to send American capital
to Germany to finance the reorganization of its
industry under the Nazis. Their leading German partner
was the notorious Nazi industrialist Fritz Thyssen, who
wrote a book admitting much of this called "I Paid

Among the companies financed was the Silesian-American
Corporation, which was also managed by Prescott Bush,
and by his father-in-law George Herbert Walker, who
supplied Dub-a-Ya with his name. The company was vital
in supplying coal to the Nazi war industry. It too was
seized as a Nazi- front on November 17, 1942. The
largest company Bush's UBC helped finance was the
German Steel Trust, responsible for between one-third
and one-half of Nazi iron and explosives. Prescott Bush
was also a director of the Harriman Fifteen
Corporation, (this one owned largely by Roland's
brother, Averell Harriman), which owned about a third
of the Consolidated Silesian Steel Corporation, the
rest owned by Friedrich Flick, (a member of Himmler's
"Circle of Friends" who donated to the S.S.).
Republican Presidential candidate Bush's great
-grandfather, Bert Walker, helped organize the Harriman
investment in the Hamburg-America Line of ships, of
which grandfather Prescott became a director. It was
seized on August 28, 1942 because it was used to give
free passage to Nazi propaganda and propagandists, and
had earlier shipped guns to the Nazi's private armies
to assist their takeover of Germany. Further examples
would be more tedious than shocking. But, given these
evil financial dealings, how did Prescott later become
a Republican Senator, and George H.W. become President?
Well,the two leading attorneys for these
Bush-Harriman-Nazi deals were John Foster Dulles, later
Secretary of State under Eisenhower, and Allen Dulles,
future head of the CIA.

Prescott's father, Samuel P. Bush, owned Buckeye Steel
Castings Co. which made parts for the Harriman
brothers' father's (E.H. Harriman) railroads.
Harriman's financing for the railroads came largely
from William Rockefeller. These shipped the oil of his
brother John D. Rockefeller, the founder of Standard
Oil. (This was the origin of the two Georges'
involvement in the oil business.) Samuel Bush became a
leader in President Woodrow Wilson's "War Socialism" as
director of small armaments and ammunition on the War
Industries Board (which set up coercive price-fixing
cartels over American industry during World War I).
There, Bush assisted Percy Rockefeller (son of William)
in his takeover of small arms manufacturers.

The elder George Bush continued the family tradition of
support for totalitarian governments by supporting the
Communist Chinese in the UN, and by directly aiding its
military as President. Will the younger George Bush
continue to support big government, or will he support
free markets? His first political act was a tax
increase to subsidize his baseball stadium. When
libertarians and conservative Republicans were opposing
the bailout of American banks that loaned money to the
Mexican government, the Texas Governor supported it,
because of his connections to those Wall Street Banks.
This is in keeping with the actual history of the
Republican Party. It was founded in the 1850's
explicitly as the party of high taxes to subsidize
politically connected businesses, (then known as
"internal improvements"). All Republican Presidents in
the last fifty years have continued to increase the
size of the government, and claims of support for free
markets and lowered taxes are mere rhetorical cover.
Texas Governor George Bush will continue that

There were little warning signs but few were paying
attention when George Bush the poppy ran for president
in 1988 and 1992. First during the campaign it surfaced
that one of his campaign staffers was a distributor of
pro-Nazi propaganda. Before the ink was dry on the
individual's resignation, further revelations showed
there were in fact a number of ex-Nazis on Bush's
campaign staff including Laszlo Pastor and Yaroslav

Pastor was a member of the Hungarian Arrow Cross during
WWII and served as an envoy to Germany. The Arrow Cross
was known to be excessively brutal even to their Nazi
allies. Stetsko served as the prime minister of the
short lived Ukrainian puppet government. During the
short reign of this puppet regime over 100,000 Jews
were slaughtered in Lvov. George Bush's insensitivity
towards victims of the holocaust is underlined by his
employment of Fred Malek, a well-known Nazi
collaborator in both his presidential campaigns.

Upon winning the presidential race, George Bush, the
poppy placed his assets in a blind trust headed by his
close friend William Stamps Farish III. That
appointment should have triggered alarm bells that
something very dark and sinister is buried in the Bush
family's past. His grandfather William Stamps Farish
sold the Japanese the gasoline used in the attack on
Pearl Harbor. Likewise, the elder Farish supplied
Hitler's war machine with oil and tetraethyl lead.
George Bush's father, Prescott was close friends with
the elder Farish and remained so even after the elder's
testimony before congress provoked Harry Truman to cry
out "This is Treason."

In fact, during the war, Prescott had three companies
seized from him for trading with the Nazis. To
understand the web of intrigue and follow the money
from the Holocaust to the Bush family we need to start
with the period immediately surrounding WWI. By 1916
August Thyssen could see that Germany had already lost
the Great War and he needed to protect his fortune. His
eldest son had been groomed to run the family steel
business in the Ruhr. His second son Heinrich
discreetly changed his citizenship from German to
Hungarian and married the Hungarian aristocrat Baroness
Margrit Bornemisza de Kaszon. Near the end of the war
August Thyssen opened the Bank voor Handel en
Scheepvaart in Rotterdam. Holland was a neutral country
during the war and the new bank would serve as the
perfect location to launder funds from the Thyssen Bank
in Berlin and protect his fortune from allied financial
demands. At the end of the war Heinrich now going by
the name of Baron Thyssen Bornemisza de Kaszon moved to
Rotterdam and became the principal owner of the Bank
voor Handel en Scheepvaart. All that remained to be
done in August Thyseen's plan was to set up an American

In 1922, Averell Harriman traveled to Germany to set up
a branch of W.A. Harriman in Berlin. Harriman had hired
George Herbert Walker, George Bush's grandfather to run
both the New York and Berlin branches of his expanding
investment firm. During his stay in Germany Harriman
had met the Thyseen family and agreed to help the
Thyssen's set up an American bank. In 1923, Germany was
in economic shambles and Thyssen met with his friend
General Ludendorff, who advised him that Germany's hope
lied with Hitler and the Nazi Party. Thyssen soon
became a financial backer of the Nazis and Hitler.
Early in 1924, Hendrick J. Kouwenhoven, the managing
director of Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart, traveled
to New York. Meeting with Walker and the Harriman
brothers, they founded the Union Banking Corporation.
In 1926, August Thyssen died the eldest son Fritz
expanded the Thyssen empire by creating United Steel
Works. Thyssen also brought Fredich Flick on board. The
Thyssen-Flick union was designed to suppress the union
movement. As a result of the merger of Thyssen and
Flick, George Walker hired his son in law Prescott Bush
to manage the United Steel Works account. One division
of United Steel Works consisted of both Consolidated
Silesian Steel Corporation and the Upper Silesian Coal
and Steel Company. Both were located in the mineral
rich Silesian area of Poland. The arrangement was
extremely profitable for all four men: Thyssen, Flick,
Walker and Bush until the depression started in 1929.

Congressional investigations after the war showed that
United Steel had supplied 50.8 percent of the pig iron
in Nazi Germany and likewise was a major supplier of
all other ferrous based metal products needed by
Hitler's war machine. Hence, one of the largest
munitions makers in Nazi Germany was funded by Prescott
Bush, the father and grandfather of two future US

Due to the depression, Harriman merged with Brown
forming the Brown Brothers and Harriman firm.
Internally the stock of Consolidated Silesian Steel
Company was held by the Harriman 15 Corporation formed
by Harriman and Bush. Two thirds of the stock was owned
by Flick. By 1934, with Hitler in solid control of
Germany the profits from the Thyssen-Flick union soared
to over a hundred million. Both Union Bank and the Bank
voor Handel en Scheepvaart were overflowing with money.
Prescott Bush became managing director of Union Bank
and took over the day-to-day operations of the German

In 1939, the Nazis invaded Poland ending a dispute over
taxes between Consolidated and the Polish government.
The Nazis original plan was to replace the workers in
Polish factories with Soviet prisoners. However, that
portion of the Hitler-Stalin agreement was never
implemented. Consolidated Silesian Steel Corporation
was located near the Polish town of Oswiecim. When the
plan to use Soviet prisoners as forced labor fell
through, the Nazis began shipping Jews, communists,
gypsies and other minority populations to the camp the
Nazis had set up. This was the beginning of Auschwitz.
The reason Auschwitz was located there was because of
the abundant supplies of coal which could be processed
into aviation fuel. I.G. Farben soon built a plant near
Auschwitz to take advantage of not only of the nearby
coal deposits but also of the slave labor supply
available at Auschwitz.

According to a Dutch intelligence agent, Prescott Bush
managed a portion of the slave labor force in Poland.
Thyssen and Flick sold Consolidated Steel to UBC. Under
the complete control of Harriman and Bush's management,
the company became Sil esian American Corporation,
which became part of UBC and Harriman's portfolio of 15
corporations. As the 1930s progressed and it became
clearer that war was imminent, Bush and Harriman hired
the Dulles brothers to conceal the Nazi money and
ownership in Union Bank. In concealing the involvement
of the Nazis in Union Bank, Prescott Bush and Harriman
undoubtedly knew that they were already engaged in an
activity that was probably illegal and certainly not in
the best of interests of their country. Once war broke
out however, Bush's activities on the behalf of the
Nazis through Union Banking became tantamount to

The reader should understand that the concealing of
Nazis assets located in the United States through a
maze of corporate shells often based in Switzerland was
an integral part of the German battle plan. In fact,
the Nazi had a word for it, tarnung or to camouflage.
The primary aim of these concealed Nazi corporations
was to wage economic warfare by creating production
bottlenecks for their adversary. The reader should also
be aware that two Americans were present during the
secret meeting of the German elite that brought Hitler
to power. Those two Americans were John Foster and
Allen Dulles. Two of the directors of Union Banking
Groninger and Kouwenhoven, were Nazi directors of the
Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart, formerly the von Heydt
Bank. Von Heydt was also a Nazi and has been identified
as the intermediary between the Guaranty Trust and
Adolf Hitler. Both Groninger and Kouwenhoven
contributed lavishly to Himmler's Circle of Friends.
There were over forty firms around Auschwitz using
slave labor from the death camp. Soon the Nazis had a
massive store of gold from dental fillings, glasses and
jewelry. The Nazis extracted the fillings of its
victims after being informed by Degussa that the
company could refine it into marketable gold bullion.

Degussa was awarded an exclusive contract with the
Nazis to refine all gold. The company was also joint
owners with I.G. Farben of Degesch, a firm that
produced Zyklon-B cyanide tablets used in the gas
chambers. Due to the hoard of gold fillings stacking up
at Auschweitz, Degussa built a smelter there. The
bullion was then shipped back to Berlin and commingled
with the Nazis gold stash. Undoubtedly some of it made
its way back to the banker in charge of United Steel
Works, Prescott Bush. On October 20, 1942 the United
States government seized Union Banking under the
Trading with the Enemy Act. During that summer, The New
York Tribune had exposed Bush and Thyssen whom it
called Hitler's Angel. Union Bank's books revealed a
myriad of Nazi money and holding companies. Officials
realized they had only scratched the tip of the
iceberg. On November 17, 1942, the government seized
Silesian American Corporation and placed its operation
under the Government Alien Property custodian office.

Following the war, authorities seeking to locate the
Dutch Royal family's jewelry discovered the transaction
papers of the Silesian American Corporation in the
books of Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart. The bank
manager, H.J. Kounhoven came under intense scrutiny and
was shocked by the discovery. Soon Kounhoven traveled
to New York to inform Prescott Bush. Dutch authorities
date the meeting as soon after Christmas 1947. Two
weeks later, the otherwise healthy Dutch banker died of
a heart attack.

Coincidentally, this was the method of choice of the
Gehlen network for liquidating people. The Nazis had
perfected a method of inducing heart attacks that
autopsies could not detect. On February 8, 1951,
Thyssen died in Argentina. Following his death, the
Alien Property Custodian released the assets of the
Union Banking Corporation to Brown Brothers Harriman.
The remaining shareholders quietly cashed in their
remaining shares. Prescott Bush received $1.5 million
for his share in Union Banking's blood money.

This brief article has only scratched the surface of
the sordid association of Prescott Bush with the Nazis
as he had yet a third company seized from him during
the war. In his first run for senator, Prescott was
defeated after his position within the eugenics
movement was disclosed. George the poppy has followed
in his father's footsteps and retained many of the same
family connections with the Nazis. For instance, as
chairman of the Republican Party he presided over the
formation of the Ethnic Heritage groups of the
Republican Party. This was a reward for the Nazi
quislings from Eastern Europe for helping in the
election of Nixon as president. When two or more ethnic
groups were vying for control over a particular group
invariably the group with close ties to the Nazis won
out. George also shows the same intense interest in
population control.

Perhaps it was for his beliefs in eugenics, George
appointed Draper as his expert on population. Or
perhaps it was more of a reward for past services
rendered by Draper to the Bush family. Draper was the
former general placed in control of the military
government's economic division after the war. Draper
was a rabid racist and member of the Eugenics Society.
He was also a former employee of Dillion and Reed, the
large Wall Street brokerage house that floated the
largest German bond offerings including one for United
Steel Works. In his position as economic czar of
Germany, he stopped the dismantling of an I.G. Farben
plant and was in the ideal slot to protect his former
clients that armed Hitler, including Bush.

The same close associations are apparent with Bush
junior. One interesting pattern in international
relations is ready observed that the Israeli government
moves to the hard right whenever a Bush is in the Oval
Office. Considering, Israel has one of the best
intelligence agencies in the world and a perhaps the
most extensive data base on the holocaust, could the
Israeli hard-liners be blackmailing the Bushes? Do they
have a smoking gun that would at once end the political
aspirations of the entire Bush clan as well as place
the family wealth at risk for damages suffered during
the Holocaust? One researcher already says the family
wealth is at risk in such suits; the ties are that

Any reasonable person understands that the tragedy of
9-11 was allowed to happen. Only the White House can
order the interceptors to stand down, once an aircraft
deviates from its flight plan or contact is lost.
Within 30 minutes of the time the golfer's plane that
decompressed failed to follow directions from the
control tower a fighter was alongside and shadowed the
plane until it ran out of fuel and crashed in the
midwest. The story that no fighters were available is
simply a lot of bullshit. There are probably no less
than a dozen or more airports within range of New York
and Washington DC with fighter squadrons on standby.
Yet, Bush wants us to believe that the entire East
Coast was left unprotected with no fighters to provide
air cover including the restricted airspace over the
White House. The 9- 11 tragedy was the Reichstag fire
and the so-call Patriot Act, the enabling act for
another fascist government.

With American blood about to stain the sands of the
Mideast why hasn't the media focused on the merchant of
death, who armed Saddam? They would need to look no
further than George Bush, the poppy and Vice President
Dick Cheney. Poppy Bush is rubbing his hands with glee
counting potential profits for his Carlyle Group. The
group holds stocks in defense industries that armed
Saddam during the Reagan years and provided arms for
the US military. This is the way the Bush family makes
it money. Just ask Prescott. It didn't take Dick long
to learn that secre t. After the first Bush
administration in which Cheney was the head of defense,
he became head of Halliburton.While at Halliburton,
Dick sold hundred of millions of dollars worth of dual
use equipment to Iraq.

Stand behind the young soldiers and wave a flag for
them, as they are mere canon fodder for this fascist
clique. Don't wave a flag for the most corrupt
administration in the history of the country that's
hell -bent on installing a fascist regime beholding to

    "US propaganda fuelled the first Gulf war. It will fuel
    this one too - and the risks are even greater"

The chances of Saddam Hussein using chemical and
biological weapons if attacked are, according to the
testimony of the CIA to the US Senate intelligence
committee on October 7, "pretty high" - a scenario that
even one of greatest hawks in US history, Brent
Scowcroft, former national security adviser to George
Bush senior, says would lead to meltdown in the Middle
East. As of December 7, when Iraq is expected to
produce its definitive dossier, there should be no
illusions: no matter what Baghdad discloses, America
and almost certainly Britain are going to war. The
"material breach", if it does not happen by itself,
will be manufactured, so wringing consent for the
second Gulf war just as consent was manufactured with
breathtaking cynicism in 1991. There were two glaring
examples of how the propaganda machine worked before
the first Gulf war. First, in the final days before the
war started on January 9, the Pentagon insisted that
not only was Saddam Hussein not withdrawing from Kuwait
- he was - but that he had 265,000 troops poised in the
desert to pounce on Saudi Arabia. The Pentagon claimed
to have satellite photographs to prove it. Thus, the
waverers and anti-war protesters were silenced.

We now know from declassified documents and satellite
photographs taken by a Russian commercial satellite
that there were no Iraqi troops poised to attack Saudi.
At the time, no one bothered to ask for proof.

No one except Jean Heller, a five-times nominated
Pulitzer prize-winning journalist from the St
Petersburg Times in Florida, who persuaded her bosses
to buy two photos at $1,600 each from the Russian
commercial satellite, the Soyuz Karta. Guess what? No
massing troops. "You could see the planes sitting wing
tip to wing tip in Riyadh airport," Ms Heller says,
"but there wasn't was any sign of a quarter of a
million Iraqi troops sitting in the middle of the
desert." So what will the fake satellite pictures show
this time: a massive chemical installation with Iraqi
goblins cooking up anthrax?

...The US propaganda machine is already gearing up. In
its sights already is Hans Blix, the chief weapons
inspector. He's too much of a softie for Saddam, the
former CIA director James Wolsey told the Today
programme last week. His work is of "limited value". He
was Kofi Annan's "second choice". What next? Blix's
granny is Iraqi? He has a drugs problem?

Meanwhile, in Britain, Jack Straw's new human rights
dossier on Iraq is timed to coincide with the build-up.
Convenient, eh? The second tactic used to get consensus
for war in 1991 was another propaganda classic: dead
babies. Then, the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador in
Washington, Nijirah al-Sabah, tearfully described how,
as a volunteer in the Al Adnan hospital in Kuwait City,
she had watched Iraqi soldiers looting incubators to
take back to Baghdad, pitching the Kuwaiti babies on to
"the cold floor to die".

Except it never happened. The Filipina nurses, Frieda
Construe- Nag and Myra Ancog Cooke, who worked in the
maternity ward of the Al Adnan hospital, had never seen
Ms al-Sabah in their lives. Amnesty admitted they had
been duped. Middle East Watch confirmed the
fabrication, but it was too late: a marginal US
congress had been swung to vote for war. George Bush
senior mentioned the "incubator babies" seven times in
pre-war rallying speeches. It was months before the
truth came out. By then, the war was over.

This time, we have yet to see what propaganda will be
used to rally consensus for the second Gulf war by
proving a "material breach". It is highly likely that
Saddam Hussein maintains at least some chemical and
biological capacity. In a war in which his own survival
is unlikely (and already rumoured to be ill with
cancer) Saddam Hussein has nothing to lose. If he knows
his fall is imminent, what terrible legacy might he
choose to leave behind? What better present to his
extremist Arab brothers than an attack on Israel?

And how will the US, Britain or Israel respond if their
troops or cities come under chemical or biological
