WELCOME TO KANUKISTAN

Q: What is the difference between Liberal Scum and Conservative Scum? A: Scum is scum. Means the pond is dying and so are the fish in it.
(As proof just look at all the political wonder-kids that have immolated themselves - mostly Conservatives - and are now floating belly-up) And now it's 05/14. Must be real difficult for Harper, having to put up with not always getting his own way. Damned Parliament and Supreme Court. Bloody inconvenient. Makes Chretien look like a true champion of democracy. And what is it with Conservatives, that they barely avoid drowning in the public trought. Federal and Provincial alike. ME! ME! ME! ALL MINE! I'M ENTITLED TO IT ALL!!! GIMME GIMME GIMME!!! I DESERVE IT!. Duffy, Wallin, Brazeau, Redford, etc. etc. etc.). I believe that defines a KLEPTOCRACY. KLEPTOCRATIC PARTY OF CANADA (Feel free to substitute Conservative or Liberal, as you may wish) Truth in Advertising (At least Horner decided to turn down the hot potato job of Premier of Alberta. Man has more sense - if not ethics - than I gave him credit for. Gone up in my approval rating). Assholes. Not to mention hypocrites. Seen enough of that movie. Most recent one? Spend millions to try to ransom ('buy') some 250 women in Nigeria (looks good in international PR). Spend zilch in trying to find what happened to 2000 Canadian women (mostly aboriginal, so who gives a damn?); Colonial racist bastards. Now under new management And who is this nonentity? Jean Cretien light? Steve Who? Steve Martin? Another Mulroney? What will be his legacy? Scandal? Well, 11/13, and it's official. Harper is at least as much of a sleazy jerk as Chretien. That puts him at the bottom of the barrel as far as Prime- Ministers go just barely ahead of Mulroney (Martin doesn't count, he was just plain incompetent). Has about as much credibility as Duffy (none!). (Remember, I wrote this before the Duffy scandal)!! Oh! Steve HARPER. The Ex-REFORM dude who switched to being a Liberal Lite. Just another Jean Chretien clone. You either practice and honor parliamentary democracy standards or you are a wannabe dictator. You either maintain a high ethical standard or you are scum.

HARPER SUCKS

Take from the Poor and Give to the Rich Tax the Seniors - Give to big business More For Me!!! I Deserve More!!! Give Me More!!! We De$erve It Will this bunch be any better? So far not, but give them a chance. So far all we have seen is another regime kissing Ontario butt and trying to resurrect the Mulroney cadaver. This suits Ontario voters. They welcome any form of government corruption, as long as it means anyone but a Western or Atlantic Canada Prime Minister. Well, I was a virulent anti-Chretien and Martin. So after 9 months of Harper what do I think?

HARPER SUCKS

GET RID OF BUSH LITE

Vote Green, or PQ, or Rhinocerous.

ANYONE BUT HARPER

So from a strong anti-Chretine/Martinite how did I get here? Here's the thinking as we went along:

Harper Denies Canadian Aboriginals Equal Human Rights Protection

"Well, 6 months down the road it seems that this guy is maybe a little more efficient and decisive, but is just as paranoid as Chretien and Martin and not much different than the last bunch. Same old same old. This is the guy who promised more openness, accountability and democracy in government. Judging by the secrecy in government and the new lock-down on information and media, not to mention the secret deals with the U.S. that are already coming to light, this guy makes Chretien look like a paragon of openness and democracy. And he still has these Governor Generals (???) who are powered by nothing but their own Narcissism. If they want these damned personal holidays and agendas so badly they should damned well pay for them themselves, not at the public trough. From a past supporter of what I accepted as a quaint and colorful part of Canadiana, I am now 200% in favour of getting rid of these position and these Leeches. This is the guy who railed against SECRET government accounts with no accountabilty (first initiated by the Martin-Chretien comedy team), and the first thing he does is create at least 3 such SECRET accounts to squirrel $3.6 BILLION into that account for SECRET disbursements so that his government won't have to account for. Apparently there will be little change. Historically, the only way that there will be a change is through indulging in that honorable Canadian Tradition - rebelling against Ottawa (which Canadians have had to do 6 times already in the past). Well, so far he has lost 90% of the goodwill I started out with, which starts to put him pretty close to Chretien and Martin territory. About the only difference is that he has managed to get a few things done - which is more than Martin did in his entire term. So much for my above statement. Harper's most recent statement that the murder of women and children in Afghanistan was an "unfortunate accident" has lost him what little remained of my goodwill. Makes Harper look about as bright - or dishonest - as George Bush. Accident My Ass, and he knows it. It was targeted bombing of a village in support of a U.S. military action. Bombing of civilian areas is a common tactic used by the U.S. It is no less reluctant to bomb civilian communities than were the Russians. In fact, they have shown themselves to be somewhat less squeamish about it than the Russians were. Killing women and children ("collateral damage", as the U.S. puts it) is not the Canadaian way. Or at least, never used to be, but I suppose Times Change. Not to mention Hapers whole-hearted support for Israeli war crimes in Lebanon. That the murder of 10,000 women and children by Israeli Ethnic Cleansing in Lebanon was "an acceptable measured response", and that the Hezbolla are actually Nazis in disguise. As for Canada being in Afghanistan, it has long since lost the high road. "Reconstruction" has long since failed and been a farce. The Coallition has never gone into parts of Afghanistan that have no strategic (i.e. U.S. oil pipeline) value. It only occupies the Khyber-Kabul-Helmand corridor from the Uzbekistan oilfields to the coast. In the rest of Afghanistan the Coalition has no presence and no interest. In the places it does operate, it merely props up a corrupt puppet government and surrogate militias. In most areas it co-operates with the same guys who were in power under the Soviets, against whom the Afghanis rose (ironic that the national hero Massoud, leader of the Northern Alliance, who drove out the Soviets is now being portrayed as an ex-commie). And let's not forget that under U.S. aegis, Afghanistan has gone from ZERO opium, hasish and MJ growing under the Taliban to being the main world supplier under the U.S. (as was true of Thailand, Cambodia, Columbia and Panama). Harper, in case you havn't noticed, the U.S. Coalition is in Afghanistan as a force of occupation on a crusade to impose an alien culture and way of life on the Afghanis. Preferably through a puppet regime, but by force if necessary. Since you seem to be about as bright as Bush in this area, you may not have noticed that the coalition is not winning. The resistance is growing and making advances even with it's limited means. The coalition has lost it's goodwill - if it ever had any - and is seen as a force of occupation and as FARANGI SWINE. Don't forget, the Taliban was legally elected by the people of Afghanistan in their normal, traditional constitutional way. We particiapted in the overthrow of a legal government for spurious reasons. Is there any wonder that the Afghani consider us as hostiles? So, as far as I am now concerned

HARPER SUCKS

After 9 months, my thoughts?

GET RID OF BUSH LITE

Vote Green, or PQ, or Rhinocerous.

ANYONE BUT HARPER

though at least he still does not stink as bad as Chretien and Martin. Yet.

1 YEAR DOWN THE ROAD.

I see no reason to change my mind.

3 YEARS DOWN THE ROAD.

Sure as Hell don't see any reason to change my mind now. This fellow has never seen a principle he can't walk away from within 2 days. He has done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING so far but talk. Yes, lots of promises, lots of things started BUT NOTHING FINISHED by the end of the parliamentary term, so it gets scrapped. That is, unless you consider his ability to sidestep due process. Anyone that disagrees with him automatically disappears into the political and beaurocratic wastelant - including the supposed Heads of supposedly Independent Parliamentary Committees - no matter how many millions it costs (the taxpayer) to settle for the costs of unjust dismissal. I have no doubt this turkey would just love to behead these guys as soon as he can figure out a way to PROROGUE the law. After all, Lenin, Hitler, Mussolini, Mugabe, Karzai, Khomeini all used parliamentary law to become Supreme Leader. This is the guy for who the Parliament, Parliamentary system and elections are a nuisance that he tries to avoid whenever possible. There appears to be no promise, policy or principle he can't back away from. This may be the least principled Prime Minister ever. And the Opposition Idiots can't get their act together to even come up with some policies and priciples. Everybody's just too busy making sure that they can cling onto their overpaid underworked overcompensated place at the money trough. What's next? A REICHSTAG Fire? Where is Guy Fawkes when you need him? A few barrels of gunpowder in the parliamentary basement can work wonders to focus the HOUSE OF LARDS.

4 YEARS DOWN THE ROAD.

I miss Chretien. At least he was honest and had some principles.

Canada has 12,000,000 people of Aboriginal Ancestry This is 35% of the Population We are the 3rd largest ethnic group We are the poorest, sickest, most oppressed of all groups in Canada. We have the highest mortality rate (including Child Mortality) of any group in Canada. We are specifically excluded from Human Rights Protection. Our religion is the only one not not protected by law. There are special laws controling "Indians". The City of Edmonton alone has 3,000 aboriginal homeless people living on the streets summer and winter. 46 of these die on the street every year. This, in the City of Edmonton alone, is more than die in the Canadian Armed Forces every year including Afghanistan. Aboriginal communities in Canada live in Third-World Conditions; children here are dying there because of poverty, poor health and lack of clean water. Canada has the highest rate of Child Poverty in the western world. Canada's aboriginals have been referred to as "Canada's Niggers". And now our Prime Minister has piously rushed forward to declare that it is his divine mission to bring help to the world's suffering children and poor. Open your eyes to what is in your own yard, Mr. Prime Minister! Canada is the ONLY country that will not sign the UNITED NATIONS CHARTER ON THE RIGHTS OF INDIGINOUS PEOPLES. Shame on you and your crass opportunism Prime Minister Harper. Tell our Prime Minister what you think of this.

30 PATRONAGE APPOINTMENTS PER MONTH AVERAGE

It is quickly becoming clear that the P.C.'s have not been slow to take up the Liberal position to how they are ENTITLED to their ENTITLEMENTS and PERKS and damned well intend to use them to the hilt. $4,000 for Limousine Service for 2 weeks. Private luxury jets for local hops. Junkets to "Meetings" in the international playgrounds. And so it begins. And now we find that Good Ol' Harper has decided that Alberta should be plundered so that the PC's can buy more votes in Ontario and Quebec. Oh No, not NEP - this time only 50% of Alberta's (and Saskatchewan's - but not the other provinces') royalties from resources. And what's more, we now find that Harper -- with the agreement of Ralph's government in Alberta -- agreed in 2006 to another SECRET DEAL WITH THE U.S. for Canada to increase it's exploitation of Alberta's petroleum resources and strip these resources as fast as possible. What other SECRET DEALS did HARPER make -- and with who ?? More with the U.S. for sure. Syria ?? Israel ?? Block Quebequois ?? Perhaps the critics were right. Can't trust this guy. Maybe he DOES have a hidden agenda. Like I said before, He's beginning to make Chretien look like a paragon of openness -- and Trudeau and open and honest Prime Minister. So what's the difference between Chretien/Martin and Harper. I guess I can only repeat what I've said before:

WOE CANADA!

WOE CANADA!

WELCOME TO KANUKISTAN

RUN BY CROOKS FOR CROOKS


North America's answer to Zimbabwe/Afghanistan/Iran

I detested Pierre Trudeau. But today I have to admit that he was head-and- shoulders above 'On The Take' Mulroney, who was certainly a better man than Chretien. Trudeau has yet to have even a hint of scandal associated with himself, and acted quickly to stomp out any hint of scandal (and lets forget about "that's no Lady, that's my wife" M) within the Liberal Party and his government. He was an honorable and above-board man with a Vision of Canada, not a vision of filling their pockets, as had his predecessors. He was straight-forward; he told the West he was going to screw them, and he did. No sneakiness or beating about the bush or two-facedness. You may not have liked him or his vision, but today I would have to say that he deserves respect - something that these yokels after him do not.

YES

This man keeps his campaign promises! That was then, this is 2010. Harper hasn't yet come across a promise or princible that he can't abandon within two weeks.

YES

This man gets things done in a timely and efficient manner. Unlike Chretien & Martin, he makes no promises and lets them slide for the next decade, trotting them out as new policy at every election. HAH! He may have got things done that first year. Since the, NOTHING. Instead, he starts things, then lets them die in his parliamentary gymnastics.

YES

This man has the ability and good manners to maintain a decent relationship with the U.S. Those who have read my blogs over the years will know that I am not a fan of the U.S. by any means - perhaps quite the opposite. But there is no reason for out Prime Minister and M.P.s to go out of their way to be insulting - it is only good manners and protocol. If we can be civil to some of the world's leading dictators and madmen we can certainly be civil to our U.S. 'friends'. On the other hand, utterly too much behavior that smacks of becoming the next US Trust Territory. We now have US 'Advisors' attached to our military units and just last week (2010) it slipped out that the US has now co-opted the Canadian Forces into it's "War on Terror" interference in the Yemeni and Sudanese civil wars.

YES

This man has put some much needed OOMPH back into the Canadian military. Regardless of what we (and I) may think of our stupidity of getting conned into being in Afghanistan (regardless of the fact that we may have gone in with the right intent and reasons, wrong as they may have been under the circumstances), the Forces badly needed new equipment and budgetary increases - and inceased staffing, if only to maintain a credible presence in Canadian territory. Too bad most of it being wasted and destroyed in Afghanistan. $10 per year for each acre of opium grown. $500,000 per each artillery shell fired off $3,000,000 for each armored vehicle blown up. $5,000,000 operating costs per year for each tank we rented.

IDIOT!

CONGRATULATIONS

Canadians are now bringing Death and Destruction to the bedroom of the average Ma and Pa Afghan bedrooms. Great fun Eh? Canadians are now imbroiled in a controversy over being in breach of international and Canadian laws in turning over prisoners to be tortured. Attaway to lose friends and influence people. More compensation for a male deficiency Steve?
What the Hell are we doing crusading in Afghanistan!!! Why is it so difficult for the political and military mind to grasp that you do not make friends by killing women and children, regardless who who'se side they are on? I know, I know, making a safer world (oops, that one went out the window, didn't it), fight terrorism (gee, as anyone who followed the Afghan thing from back in the days of the U.S.S.R. knows, the Afghanis didn't have the resources, organization or ability to hit anything more than 100 miles outside their borders), capture Osama Bin Laden (yes, George Bush's business partner to who he still owes $1,000,000,000.00 - and who is still at large), to halt the threat of Al Qaeda (HA HA HA!!! Let's not even go into that). True, Canada went in to get rid of the Evil Taliban Government - which was the legally elected government, elected by the political system that has been in effect in Afghanistan since time immemorial. And which was left in control of 85% of Afghanistan after the invasion, without being brought to account. And most of who's administration is now being used in the Allied Occupied Zone - at least where the old Communists have been reinstated (for example, the Police, Army and Militia) to administer the Occupied Zone. To bring enlightenment. That is, to show the poor Afghan colonial savages what a pitiful and degrade way of life they have which can only be curred by tearing it down and replacing it with Western Values and bringing them the benefits of Anglo civilization and enlightement. Manifest Destiny. Let's not forget that under the Taliban Afghanistan was a Drug-Free country which now, under Allied Occupation (with U.S. agreement) now produces 90% of the world Opium production to fund (1) the warlords and (2) the campaign against the Taliban. And to bring democracy - replacing the traditional government with a puppet regime that was installed in a way identical to that installed by the Russians - with somewhat less freedom of action - and to function in exactly the same way. That is, it is to act as the Front Man to enforce the Occupation Policy. Of course, the government is only nominal, and has no authority outside Kabul, where Taliban, Communist and sundry other Warlords have been left in charge and supported (and backed) by the Allied Occupation Force. In fact the central government is so popular that the Presient has to be surrounded by 200 U.S. Security Agents AT ALL TIMES. Let's not forget that the WESTERN FARANGI OCCUPYING FORCES have now become as popular as the Russians were and the RESISTANCE MOVEMENT is now reaching the same intensity and size that it was just before the Russians quit and went home (just as the Americans will do shortly, leaving the Canadians and other allies to bear the brunt). All the Resistance needs now is a friendly country to supply AA missiles and the Western Occupation Force will have reached the same success as the Russians. If you've been paying attention, Canadians are getting killed in Afghanistan faster than the Yanks in Iraq. Now that's a pretty damned high attrition rate, considering the Yanks have 80x as many men being targeted. Apparently not as efficient as we would like to pretend, at least compared to the Yanks.

NO!!

Harper!! You lost me with your support for the Israeli Nazi Butchers and their U.S. sponsors. I thought that Canada opposed Ethnic Cleansing and carpet bombing of civilian districts. We did in Yugoslavia, didn't we? And were oh-so-smug and self- congratualtory about it. And Somalia? And hung our head in shame over Uganda because we were not able to do it there? Seems somewhere along the way from Uganda on we were on the side of aiding and abetting the forces of ethnic cleansing, illegal invasion, and carpet-bombing of urban areas. Nothing can justify the intentional targeting of Senior's lodges, hospitals, kindergardens, ambulances, U.N. observer posts and wholsale carpet bombing of urban centers and slaughter of civilians. Even the Nazis didn't go in for carpet bombing and leveling of urban centers. That was a YANKEE innovation. Let's recall that 12 Lebanese have been killed for every 1 Israeli - the same ratio for which Germans were executed for as War Criminals at the Nurenberg Trials. Yes, the TORAH and OLD TESTAMENT justify Jewish retaliation with the injunctions to kill your enemies, including women and children, to the 7th generation. Yes, the TORAH and OLD TESTAMENT justify Jewish retaliation telling the Jews to retaliate by a factor of 7x7 (i.e., kill 49 Goyim for each Jew killed). However, International Law claimed that this was savagery, after W.W. II. But then, Zionists are above mortal law. And this CRAP from OTTAWA that the Hezbolla are NAZI's? Better go take an intoductory course in political science or history. They may not be the most likeable politics, but in no way are they Nazi. It is the Israeli leadership that apparently have studied and absorbed Nazi military and occupation philosophy 100%, not Hezbolla. It is Israel that practices mass terror bombing (as has the U.S. ever since the WWII carpet bombing). It is Israel that practices ethnic cleansing. It is Israel that has murdered 10 civilians for each Israeli casualty - pissed them off that Hezbolla had a higher kill ratio of Israeli fighters than the Israeli did of Hezbolla fighters (who are uniformed, by the way, like any legal army under the Geneva Convention). What would Israel propose as a FINAL SOLUTION to it's Arab problem? But then, This is only another part of the U.S. Master Plan for the Middle East. Destabilize, destabilize, destabilize so that the oil resources can be looted. Israel, a proxy in the new Crusades. The U.S. has managed to destabilize Afghanistan, Iraq, Turkmenistan and Pakistan. Lebanon is the next dominoe. The same old plan is in use, the U.S. (in this case the U.S. Proxy Israel) invades, in violation of International Law and begins to bomb the country back to the Stone Age, with the intent of "Regime Change", trying to install an docile puppet government, and then call in an international force as an Occupation force to deal with and clean up the shit and get the bad P.R. Congrat's, Yanks. You havn't succeeded in installing puppet regimes in those countries, or create docile and servile client states, or reduce terrorism. Quite the opposite. On the other hand, you did get a couple of puppet states. England, Australia and Canada.

NO!!

No political recognition for terrorist organizations, Hezbolla, Palestine and the Israeli mass murderers until they get their respective acts together as civilized people.

NO!!

What is this B.S. about secretly giving fat raises to top ministerial cronies in secret? Were you not the one who campaigned on NO MORE SECRECY, on MORE GOVERNMENT OPENNESS, and No more bloated government running off at the wallet? Losing me more and more as a voter.

FIX IT

No more bulk immigration from third world.

FIX IT

This dysfunctional namby-pamby judicial system that coddles the criminal and punishes the victim. Lets put criminals where they belong. As some of the people I know - who spend as much time in jail as out of it - "If you do the crime, be prepared to do the time." "Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves." (Prime Minister William Pitt in a speech to the British House of Commons in 1787 {10}) Pitt, William P.M. 1747 ENG (Fromhold 2012 {12})

NEW CHRISTIAN CRUSADER EMPIRE

THE NEW CRUSADES J. Fromhold, M.A. Copyright 2003 With the advent of the Iranian Revolution several decades ago one began to hear a call from the Islamic world for a JIHAD, or "Holy War" against what was seen by certain "extremist fundamentalist" clerics as an assault by Western values against traditional (if, perhaps fundamentalist extremist) Islamic values. The west, of course, was duly scandalized that these Islamic extremists would even think of such a thing. The west had no such intentions. And besides, if western values were ussurping Islamic values (which they were), so what, it was all for the better and it was about time these backwards people (read: barbarians, infidels) received the benefits of (western) civilization. Social Darwinism is strongly ingrained in Western tradition - as long as it is a one way process. Westerners and governments as a whole were quick to support the JIHAD concept when the Afghani rose under it's banner to drive out the ("Godless") Communists. Americans, particularly, thought it rather smug that the Soviets were considered 'Godless Infidels', whereas they - like the Muslims - were 'People of the Book'. Needless to say, they were appalled when it turned out that the Afghani were actually serious about Islamic values, and reverted to an orthodox ("extremist fundamentalist") goverment and social system once having expelled the Infidels. With the expulsion of the Soviets from Afghanistan and the subsequent demise of the Soviet Union, the United States essentially began to undertake a Crusade of democracy - at least nominally. It was the Untied States who championed military interference in foreign states to implement 'democracy' and 'human rights' - meaning, Western Values. It was the United States that spearheaded military interference in the Balkans and elsewhere, subsequently dragging in other states to finish the job, while they got out. While the Balkans can be said to have been a success of the stated aims, the same can not be said for subsequent interventions. Somalia was a resounding failure for the U.S., who quickly cut and ran, followed a bit more decorously by the multilateral/U.N. forces; Uganda was a dismal failure for the U.N. All these 'Crusades for Freedom' (War on Poverty, War on Terrorism, etc.), if we can call them that, have two primary characteristics. 1. They are initiated and carried out by the Europeans/Westerners - the 'Franks' of Middle-eastern history - aided by nominal contingents from non-Frank Vassal States. 2. They have all been carried out against Islamic states. In addition, they are fueled by a certain fervor in the states of origin to bring enlightenment and western ("Christian") values to the target states. For their own betterment ('salvation'), of course. In other words, they are classical examples of the general tenor of the Crusades of the Middle Ages in the modern context. Virtually all intervention/agression is initiated by the United States with nominal contingents from allied and vassal states. In this, the U.S. plays the role that Norman Kingdoms did in the middle east, the U.N. being used to fulfill the 'moral justification' role that was played by the Catholic Church in the Middle Ages. The Liberation of Kuwait saw the entry of a more pragmatic factor into the Crusader equation - economics. In this case, the economics of petroleum. In this way, the economics of petroleum plays much the same role as the economics of trade control and tribute did to the Crusaders of the Middle Ages. By the advent of Afghanistan the prime consideration was economic, though under the guise of freedom, human rights, etc. were the catch- words. The economics, for the U.S. were pure and simple - control of the oil pipeline corridor from Kirghizistan to the Indian Ocean. The invasion of Iraq was even less concealed as an economic war, in spite of the massive hype about imminent danger to the world, liberation of the Iraqi, installation of democracy and western values, and so on (whatever cause was deemed most sellable on any given day). Subsequent results show no substantial change or 'improvements' in Afghanistan, with no real interest in operations outside the pipeline corridor, and no real improvement for the Iraqi. In both states the actual standard of living has been degraded by the war and not recovered, at the cost of considerable 'unavoidable collateral damage' - that is, deaths of numerous civilians, destruction of considerable civilian housing, and destruction of the infrastructure. Primary consideration has not been towards improvement of the lot of the civil population, but into making these states economically viable to support their own improvements. That is, to increase the viability of loot and tribute. The ultimate result of the Crusades, of course, was the establishment of Crusader States with nominal allegiance to European states. The same process is in evidence today. ISRAEL is of course the original Neo-Crusader state. That it is not Christian is of no real concern; it is, after all, an Infidel state and a proxy of the United States. It is, without argument, a Frankish/ European state even though ethnically of Arab (Semite) origins, and plays a role not too different from that once played by the Principality of Antioch. Generally plays it's own game though dependant on U.S. support and arms. PROTECTORATE OF KANDAHAR - Nominally a region of Afghanistan owing allegiance to the Protectorate of Kabul. Nominally democratic, liberated, and progressive. In reality a puppet government directly subservient to the U.S. military command. Nominally democratic, but with little independent authority. No significant change in human rights or standard of living, except those of deteriorating conditions and security. Headquarters of the U.S. interests in Afghanistan and controls the southern half of the pipeline corridor. Occupied by some 10-20,000 U.S. troops plus local collaborationist/vassal (such being historically known as 'Auxiliary') troops. More recent allied forces have been sent in to bear the brunt of the Resistance movement attacks. PROTECTORATE OF KABUL - Nominally the central power in Afghanistan and the government of the independent state of Afghanistan. Nominally democtatic, liberated and progressive. In reality, a pupped government installed directly by the U.S. with little real authority in Kabul and nil outside the immediate environs. Directly subservient to both the U.S. military command and the immediate allied Frankish Occupation Forces. No significant change in human rights or standard of living. Controls the central are of the pipeline corridor. Occupied by some 10,000 Frankish and Vassal troops (scheduled to increas to 20,000); some 1,000 local government/collaborationist troops; several thousand independent potentially hostile militias. The "President" of the state is surrounde by day and night by 200 U.S. "Security Contractors" to protect him from being mobbed by his adoring public. MASIR I SHARIF PROVINCE - Nominally a province of Afghanistan owing alleginace to the Protectorate of Kabul. In reality an independent state within Afghanistan and tributary or vassal state to the U.S. Semi-Independent dictatorship occupied only by a nominal force of U.S. military Advisors who have been known to have been co-opted into assisting massacres and mass murders. U.S. Engineering troops dug the mass graves for 3,000 people and then stood by to cover them while they were being executed. Masir I Sharif has successively been Communist, Felahin, Taliban and now, U.S. Ally; the leadership has not changed. It controls the northern sector of the pipeline. Occupied by some 1,000 U.S. troops plus several thousand local troops. No National troops or police. PROTECTORATE OF KHIRGHIZISTAN - A U.S. Vassal state largely economi- cally dependant on the U.S. or current developments. These developments center around development of petroleum assets and exporting to the U.S. via a pipeline through Afghanistan. A former state of the Soviet Union it is now largely independent, not democratic, and has seen little real change since the breakup of the Soviet Union. Occupied by 10-20,000 U.S. troops plus the National armed forces, remnants of the Soviet forces. PAKISTAN - A somewhat reluctant vassal state, bought and paid for by the U.S., but not happy in it's role. Controls the segment of the pipeline from Afghanistan to the Indian Ocean. Expect the U.S. to move into this part of the state if Pakistan does not become a more enthusiastic partner in the War Against Terrorism or whatever the name will be at that time. PROTECTORATE OF BAGHDAD - U.S. occupied and controled. Period. No real local government; some attempt to install a puppet government nominally to govern Iraq. Some attempt to develop collaborationist troops. After bombing it to rubble the U.S. has done little to restore the city or improve local conditions, being content to set up in 'bunkers' (i.e., contemprary fortress/castle equivalents) for protection, concentrating on restoration of oil facilities to facilitate greater tribute opportunity. Occupied by the bulk of the 120,000 U.S. troops in country. PROTECTORATE OF BASRA - A Frankish occupied inclave in the Shat Al Arab subservient to the U.S. military command in the Protectorate of Baghdad. Some nominal local government, subservient to the British Military Command in Basra. Some attempt at restoration of local government and services and improved standard of living. Controls the southern terminus for oil exports out of Iraq. Occupied by some 40,000 British and other vassal troops. KURDISTAN AUTONOMOUS REGION - Actually three seperate Kurdish regions that are mutually hostile. Nominally owing allegiance to the no-longer existent Government of Iraq, each region is largely autonomous with it's own armed forces and administration. Nominally allied/vassal states of the U.S.; while allied with the U.S. in it's war against Iraq, they are openly hostile to U.S. and/or Frankish occupation troops. Control substantial oil resources and the northern terminus for oil exports via Turkey. Occupied by some 10,000 U.S. troops, who largely concentrate only on control of oil production and delivery systems. PROTECTORATE OF UZBEKISTAN - A former Soviet State. Massive source of petroleum reserves. Occupied by some 15-20,000 U.S. troops, including newly-built airbases of intercontinental abilities. Head of the pipline corridor through Afghanistan. Ruled by Dictator For Life of the same stamp as former U.S. Ally IDI AMIN. That is, he makes Castro, Noriega, Hussein etc. look good. PROTECTORATE OF SOUTH LEBANON - Being created as we write by the Israeli proxy, with the idea that it will be controlled by Israel but the dirty work to be done by convenient puppet states of the U.S. Since Lebanon was in fact a Westernized Christian (Maronite) state it represents nothing more than a land grab and power grab by Israel similar to the kind of infighting that occurred among the Latin (Crusader) states. In review, these states occupy much the same relationships to one another, and to other Islamic and Frankish states as did the Crusader Baronies, Counties and Principalities to each other, the 'Saracen' states and the Frankish states. Indeed, other neighboring Islamic states - Syria, Turkey, Iran, Jordan, Saudi Arabia - may well be in much the same roles as were the Muslim states of the Middle Ages. They certainly will be targeted by the new Crusaders. The next stage, of course, would be the rise of an Islamic liberator - a contemporary Saladin - and the re-unification of the Middle East which, in the Middle Ages, led directly the Muslim conquests of the Eastern Roman Empire (Turkey), the Balkans, and incursions into Europe. KILLING WOMEN AND CHILDREN Over and over again in the last 150 years it has been proven over and over that indiscriminate killing or women and children - regardless of whether they are victims of indiscriminate carpet bombing or "collateral" (i.e., they happened to be in the same place that was being targeted) - has NEVER brought a quick end to hostilities. Instead, it hardens the opposition against these "inhuman" soldiers who kill indiscriminately. This latest cycle of killing women and children is syptomatic of IDEOLOGICAL WARS - wars centered around Religion or Political Ideology. Repent, Change and Convert, or we will kill your men, women and children (for your own good, of course). This last cycle began with WW.I. and has continued on since, with women and children typically being DELIBERATELY targeted by both sides. The DELIBERATE targeting actually began in WWII. The preceeding WARS OF NATIONALISM (eg., U.S. War of Independence, Napoleonic Wars, etc.) DID NOT TARGET WOMEN AND CHILDREN or, for that matter, urban centers or settlements. On the other hand, the WARS OF RELIGION (Ideological Wars) happily slaughtered men, women and children ALTHOUGH EVEN HERE THERE WERE ATTEMPTS TO AVOID CIVILIAN DEATHS. To find examples of the indiscriminate slaughter of women and children we have to go back to the AGE OF BARBARISM, where raiders Raped, Kille, Plundered, Looted and Burned. BARBARIANS - and we call ourselves civilized when we are no better. The names of GHENGIS KHAN and TAMERLANE are forever linked with the killing of thousands of women and children. Yet even theirs was carefully controlled. IT WAS NOT PERMITTED except when used as a strategic approach - not to be done in casual combat. It was done as an object lesson and used as a deliberate terror tactic (as is Carpet Bombing and Artillery targeting of villages). In such use the entire population of a city might be slaughtered to show what would happen to resistance. It was rarely necessary to repeat the lesson in any one campaign - and was TOTALLY PROHIBITED. So who's the barbarians, Canada. Stephen Harper? No better than savages and terrorists wrapped in self-rightuousness (just like the other side but with more and bigger toys).

Harper Denies Canadian Aboriginals Equal Human Rights Protection

In Canada aboriginal peoples are SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDED BY LEGISLATION from protection under the CHARTER OF RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS and the CANADIAN BILL OF HUMAN RIGHTS, as well as numerous other Acts that other Canadians take for granted. The CANADIAN HUMAN RIGHTS BOARD is PROHIBITED from championing aboriginal rights, and IS TASKED WITH ENFORCEMENT OF THESE EXCLUSIONS. The Harper Government was recently one OF ONLY TWO Nations who voted AGAINST the United Nations bill for recognition and protction of Aboriginal and Indiginous people's Human Rights. This was the ONLY time Canada has EVER voted against a Human Rights bill in the United Nations. Apparently there is an ethical difference when these bills affect only Human Rights in other countries, but not in Canada. In Canada ABORIGINALS HAVE LESS PROTECTION THAN IMMIGRANTS, REFUGEE CLAIMANTS AND VISING FOREIGNERS. What are some of the rights denied to aboriginals? - exclusion from protection under the CHARTER OF RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS - exclusion from protection under the CANADIAN BILL OF HUMAN RIGHTS - exclusion from the ELECTION ACT and from the same rights to vote - aboriginals have no PROPERTY RIGHTS - any WILL made by an aboriginal person is not a legal document in the eyes of the law. Aboriginals can not legally inherit. In some instances inheritance BY LAW must go to someone other than a wife or children. - aboriginal women are excluded from legal protection of property rights, inheritance, and division of property. - WOMEN MARRYING TREATY INDIANS LOSE ALL RIGHTS. - they LOSE THEIR HUMAN RIGHTS PROTECTION UNDER CANADIAN LAWS and no longer have the same rights and protection that other Canadian women have - not even rights accorded to immigrants, refugees and visitors. - they DO NOT gain any of the rights accrued to their husbands or to Treaty Indians. - they LOSE COVERAGE UNDER MEDICARE but are not elegible for coverage under Aboriginal Health care. - they LOSE ELEGIBILITY TO APPLY FOR STUDENT LOANS but are not elegible for funding under Aboriginal Education programs. - they LOSE ELEGIBILITY under the Canadian Social Welfare support system, but are not elegible under programs for Treaty Indians. As a result they do not receive such services as are open to immigrants, regugees and visitors. - the LOSE PROTECTION as a Parent of Children under Canadian Child Protection Laws, but have no rights as Parent under Treaty Indian legislation. Such protection is automatic for Canadian Citizens, immigrants, refugees and visitors. - Families containing a non-Treaty woman married to a Treaty Man are in an administrative no-man's land between Public services and Reserve-based services, the two juresdictions caught up in arguments over who has the "burden" of responsibility. As a result, such families usually get a run- around and are denied services. Such protection is automatic for Canadian Citizens, immigrants, refugees and visitors.
