War with Iran? No War, Yes Peace!

I received the story below from Sam Butler. I do not want any one killed. We must find an alternative to war.
Thanks to Terry Burke for this. He got it from ICUJP (Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace) a non-profit Interfaith anti-war activist group in Los Angeles California.

Let's hope the exposure of this to the light will ward it off.

Operation Bite: April 6 sneak attack by US forces against Iran planned, Russian military sources warn

WASHINGTON DC, -- The long awaited US military attack on Iran is now on track for the first week of April, specifically for 4 am on April 6, the Good Friday opening of Easter weekend, writes the well-known Russian journalist Andrei Uglanov in the Moscow weekly "Argumenty Nedeli." Uglanov cites Russian military experts close to the Russian General Staff for his account.

The attack is slated to last for 12 hours, according to Uglanov, from 4 am until 4 pm local time. Friday is the sabbath in Iran. In the course of the attack, code named Operation Bite, about 20 targets are marked for bombing; the list includes uranium enrichment facilities, research centers, and laboratories.

The first reactor at the Bushehr nuclear plant, where Russian engineers are working, is supposed to be spared from destruction. The US attack plan reportedly calls for the Iranian air defense system to be degraded, for numerous Iranian warships to be sunk in the Persian Gulf, and for the most important headquarters of the Iranian armed forces to be wiped out.

The attacks will be mounted from a number of bases, including the island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean. Diego Garcia is currently home to B-52 bombers equipped with standoff missiles. Also participating in the air strikes will be US naval aviation from aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf, as well as from those of the Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean. Additional cruise missiles will be fired from submarines in the Indian Ocean and off the coast of the Arabian peninsula. The goal is allegedly to set back Iran's nuclear program by several years, writes Uglanov, whose article was reissued by RIA-Novosti in various languages, but apparently not English, several days ago. The story is the top item on numerous Italian and German blogs, but so far appears to have been ignored by US websites.

Observers comment that this dispatch represents a high-level orchestrated leak from the Kremlin, in effect a war warning, which draws on the formidable resources of the Russian intelligence services, and which deserves to be taken with the utmost seriousness by pro-peace forces around the world.

Asked by RIA-Novosti to comment on the Uglanov report, retired Colonel General Leonid Ivashov confirmed its essential features in a March 21 interview: "I have no doubt that there will be an operation, or more precisely a violent action against Iran." Ivashov, who has reportedly served at various times as an informal advisor to Russian President Vladimir Putin, is currently the vice president of the Moscow Academy for Geopolitical Sciences.

Ivashov attributed decisive importance to the decision of the Democratic leadership of the US House of Representatives to remove language from the just-passed Iraq supplemental military appropriations bill that would have demanded that Bush come to Congress before launching an attack on Iran. Ivashov pointed out that the language was eliminated under pressure from AIPAC, the lobbing group representing the Israeli extreme right, and from Israeli Foreign Minister Tsipi Livni.

"We have drawn the unmistakable conclusion that this operation will take place," said Ivashov. In his opinion, the US planning does not include a land operation: " Most probably there will be no ground attack, but rather massive air attacks with the goal of annihilating Iran's capacity for military resistance, the centers of administration, the key economic assets, and quite possibly the Iranian political leadership, or at least part of it," he continued.

Ivashov noted that it was not to be excluded that the Pentagon would use smaller tactical nuclear weapons against targets of the Iranian nuclear industry. These attacks could paralyze everyday life, create panic in the population, and generally produce an atmosphere of chaos and uncertainty all over Iran, Ivashov told RIA-Novosti. "This will unleash a struggle for power inside Iran, and then there will be a peace delegation sent in to install a pro-American government in Teheran," Ivashov continued. One of the US goals was, in his estimation, to burnish the image of the current Republican administration, which would now be able to boast that they had wiped out the Iranian nuclear program.

Among the other outcomes, General Ivashov pointed to a partition of Iran along the same lines as Iraq, and a subsequent carving up of the Near and Middle East into smaller regions. "This concept worked well for them in the Balkans and will now be applied to the greater Middle East," he commented.

"Moscow must exert Russia's influence by demanding an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council to deal with the current preparations for an illegal use of force against Iran and the destruction of the basis of the United Nations Charter," said General Ivashov. "In this context Russia could cooperate with China, France and the non-permanent members of the Security Council. We need this kind of preventive action to ward off the use of force," he concluded.

Bush, and more recently an analysis of the methods used to perpetrate the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Comfort Women: Sure, They Were Forced and Raped!

(Updated GIF Check out the Vancouver Sun news story from Canada below)

The Japanese government is again trying to deny what Japan did during the WW2 to many Asian young women (mostly teenagers). They ABDUCTED them (yes, most of them were children, some of them hadn't started menstruating yet!) from Korea, China, The Philippines, Indonesia, etc, and put them into the Japanese Imperial Army's Ianjo (some call it "Rape House") and forced them serve as sex slaves. It can not be denied.

Our government says the purpose of having the "Ianjo(Rape House)" was not to cause adversity to local people in the cities and villages that we were invading by raping any of the local women there. This is what many soldiers do even today! Sure, the INTENTION may have been good, (actually, they should NOT HAVE INVADED in the first place! And rape is not permissible anywhere, anytime. This goes without question! We should MAKE LOVE, not rape and definitely not war!) but what about those young girls and their families who suffered so much?

Those women who survived this incredible cruelty are now in their 70s and 80s, and I can not imagine how they must have felt hearing our Prime Minister Shinzo Abe denying the fact and hurting those old women who are now slowly dying from old age. For them hearing such words must be like being raped again.

Please read some of those stories here and also the letter below to Prime Minister Abe about one of the comfort women, Lila Pilipina.

Dear Prime Minister Shinzo Abe: Join Me

March 7, 2007
The Eve of International Women's Day
An Invitation to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe

Dear Prime Minister Shinzo Abe,

We have never met, but I invite you to meet the women of LILA Pilipina. On March 2, 2007 you announced, "There is no evidence to prove there was coercion, nothing to support it (the coercion of WWII military sex slaves)." I've been working with surviving WWII Comfort Women of the Philippines since 1998. Let me take you to Lolas' House, a tiny cottage in Quezon City, Manila where women meet and gather the evidence you need to prove there was, indeed, coercion.

If 81-year old Pilar Frias is there, she will tell you that in 1942 she had two bouts with Japanese soldiers before she was taken captive. During the first intrusion, soldiers cornered her and shouted in a foreign tongue. Confused, Pilar didn't react. Frustrated, a soldier took his cigarette and held it to her face, tipped the lighted end and burned a hole into her skin. She cried out and the soldier, angry that she should be displeased drew his knife and sliced her nose. Blood poured from her face and as she cried he yanked her by the hair and shoved her head deep into a bin of water. The blood blossomed in a cloud of red. The soldiers stole the family's livestock – a cow, some chickens and pigs. They raided their supply of rice and other dried goods. During the next invasion, they raped her five times – each time it was a different soldier. 17 years old and bleeding, they tied her at the waist and dragged her along with three other girls.

She was made to follow them as they hunted down Philippine guerillas. Strung together by a sturdy hemp rope, the four girls were raped every night, five times a night, a different soldier every time.

Perhaps her words are not proof enough. Then give me your hand. Sometimes when the women tell their stories and they trust that you are listening, they will guide your hands to touch their wounds. Pilar Frias has a wide flat nose and a scar that runs the length and width of it. If you run your fingers along the line of that scar, you can actually feel where the bayonet sliced her. If you run your hands along her waist, you will see the fall and rise of scars where ropes burned her skin as she was dragged through the forests with three other young women and raped each night.

Is this not evidence of coercion?

Since 1993 the women of LILA Pilipina have come forward to the dismay of their families. They have marched the streets and filed petitions to acknowledge the crimes that were placed on their bodies, on their spirits and on the rest of their natural lives. They have traveled to Japan and appeared in your courts to tell their personal stories of sexual abuse. This is not an easy thing to do. If you understand the culture of shame that comes with such experiences, you know that their presence in this house in Quezon City, or at the gates of the Japanese Embassy in Manila, or in your country's courts is evidence enough.

The women are in their eighties, and yes, they are dying. When they are gone it will be much easier to pretend that these wartime atrocities never happened. But women like Pilar Frias have many friends and supporters. We know their stories. We have touched their wounds and seen the consequences of your militaries actions on their lives.

There are enough of us who know. Who are working to document their experiences. Who like them, are fighting to stop this act of violence from recurring to another daughter, to a niece, to a child.

This summer, I plan to visit the Lolas of LILA Pilipina to complete the work I've begun. Meet me there, Prime Minister Abe. Sit with us. Listen and then insist you have no evidence to prove there was coercion. Unless you believe that women's lives hold no value -- that the wounds that mar their bodies, that stain their minds and have affected their lives hold no value. for you

Canada has added its name to the list of countries that have criticized Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for denying that Japan forced foreign women into military brothels during the Second World War. Check out the full story here in the Vancouver Sun.

Another must see video on FRB

My friend in Costa Rica sent me this today. I started watching the first movie in the site below as I wanted to know more about the FRB (Federal Reserve Bank). It is quite interesting so I am sharing it with you.
From this site below: "Discover How the Fed Prints Money for Free, Then Collects Interest From the Bonds Their Free Money Buys, via Your Taxes."

From a floor speech by a former Chairman of Chairman of the Banking and Currency Committee for more than 10 years, in the House of Representatives (1934)

"Mr. Chairman, we have in this Country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks, hereinafter called the Fed. The Fed has cheated the Government of these United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the Nation's debt. The depredations and iniquities of the Fed has cost enough money to pay the National debt several times over."

How did it happen? After previous attempts to push the Federal Reserve Act through Congress, a group of bankers funded and staffed Woodrow Wilson's campaign for President. He had committed to sign this act. In 1913, a Senator, Nelson Aldrich, maternal grandfather to the Rockefellers, pushed the Federal Reserve Act through Congress just before Christmas when much of Congress was on vacation. When elected, Wilson passed the FED. Later, Wilson remorsefully replied, referring to the FED, "I have unwittingly ruined my country".

BBC Backs Up William Rodriguez...

William Rodriguez was the last man to escape from the World Trade Center before it collapsed.

In October last year William visited Japan to testify at our 911 Truth International Conference in Tokyo. (Listen to his testimony at the Japanese 911 Truth conference here)

He claimed that there were bombs placed in the lower sections of the twin towers and that even before the first plane hit, a bomb exploded in the basement, not far from where he was working. Because of his intimate knowledge of the World Trade Center and his valiant efforts to help with the evacuation of the building he was asked to testify for the official 911 Commission. But his testimony was omitted from the final 911 Commission Report...

I have just come across a news report on the BBC that also mentions explosions in the lower sections of the buildings, significantly distant from the impact points of the jets. Steven Evans, a BBC reporter was in one of the towers when ‘the first explosion’ occurred. Later, as he was being interviewed the first tower collapses in the background.

Why is it that the government and media have failed to look into any of the reports of explosions? Why did they omit the testimony of William Rodriguez from their official report?

I can only conclude that they have something incriminating to hide. If they were not hiding something, they would openly address the explosions. Admitting that explosions took place would mean that the ‘official‘ story was not complete, and this would in turn imply that it was not just jets that caused the buildings to collapse.

Someone placed bombs in the World Trade Center buildings and it was not Osama Bin Ladin!

You should also watch the video below from YouTube that documents many of the explosions that occurred before the buildings collapsed. It includes a moving speech by William Rodriguez...

Finally here is another eyewitness account of bombs going off in the basement of the World Trade Center.

You can read more about William Rodriguez here.

Federal Reserve behind it all? Check these out!

It seems the FRB (The Federal Reserve Bank) is the key to understanding the powerful elite behind 911 and many other unsolved issues. Check these videos out. Pretty cool...

My Letter to Michael Moore

I wrote a letter to Michael Moore after reading/watching his interview here.

Dear Michael Moore,

I am a Japanese author/journalist who is interested in knowing what has really happened on September 11, 2001. Like you, I am curious to see what is in the Pentagon surveillance films which has not been released until today, which should show Flight 77 crashing into Pentagon on that day. No one has seen it yet and I would like to know why.

If it was really hit by Flight 77 as US government claims, it should be in the film and they should be happy to show it to all of us to end the argument about 911. Too many theories and I do not know which one to believe.

So, I really support your question to the government and I hope you can get the footage of the actual crash of Boeing 757 (Flight 77) released somehow.

Keep me posted on your learnings on what really hit the Pentagon. Photographs and film footage I have seen so far doesn't confirm it was really flight 77, rather, it looks something much smaller than that.

I wrote about your recent comment and interview on this in my English and Japanese blog.

BBC WTC7 Report - Another Viewpoint...

With the BBC report on the collapse of WTC7 before it actually fell being a big hit on YouYube this week, there have been no end to the arguments surrounding its authenticity as well as the conclusions that can be drawn from the clip...

I have come across another viewpoint, this time from Freedom Force, that that takes a good detailed look at the BBC Report. Though many skeptics have pointed out several possible errors in the conclusions drawn by 911 Truth Seekers like myself, I feel that this report puts things in excellent focus.

Please read it and decide for yourself! The conclusion is strong and decisive!

Here is the link to the story.

WTC Building 7 is the Key to the Fraud of 911

I just came across a story by Steve Watson of

It appears that WTC Building 7 was built intentionally stronger than most steel frame buildings... If the New York Times story is correct (it is quoted in the Prison Planet article), then there can be little doubt that NO ONE would have been able to know beforehand that the building was going to collapse!

WTC Building 7 JPG

WTC Building 7 prior to its collapse on Sept. 11th, 2001

The fact that the BBC announced the collapse ahead of the actual event can surely be interpreted to mean that explosives had been placed in the building prior to September 11th so that it could be destroyed by a controlled demolition, when the time was deemed to be right, by the ‘directors’ orchestrating the events that day!

I have come to realize that the events of September 11th, 2001 were part of a day long Hollywood style movie drama that people of the earth were meant to see. The ‘directors’ wanted us to be so shocked by the horror and viciousness of the attacks that we would condone the wars in the middle east that would, of course, be without question ‘justifiable’ considering the lives lost and the damage done on that tragic day!

It is fortunate that there are many that saw through the lies and murderous actions that took place in New York. Thanks to their hard work and bravery we can now know the full extent of the the treacherous deeds that were carried out on that day.

We must now make sure that the names of all those who were involved in the murder of the 3,000 people on that day (and the many thousands that have perished in the subsequent wars), be be made public. Then the people of the world should decide if and how they should make up for what they have done!

Here is the link to the full article and here is a list of the victims of Sept. 11th.

What's going on with BBC? "911Tape is Lost"??

Yesterday I wrote about the time difference when the BBC reported the collapse of WTC7 at 4:57pm NY Time and when the actual event happened at 5:20pm NY time. Here is the clip if you have not yet seen this short film.

The claim the BBC replied with for this discrepancy was, "We no longer have the original tapes of our 9/11 coverage..."! Wait a minute BBC! Can't you be a bit more responsible on what you report? Below is a link to the full story from Prison Planet.



BBC Responds to Building 7 Controversy; Claim 9/11 Tapes Lost

Pathetic five paragraph blog rebuttal does not answer questions as to source of report that Salomon Building was coming down, BBC claims tapes lost due to "cock-up" not conspiracy.

The BBC has been forced to respond to footage showing their correspondent reporting the collapse of WTC 7 before it fell on 9/11, claiming tapes from the day are somehow missing, and refusing to identify the source for their bizarre act of "clairvoyance" in accurately pre-empting the fall of Building 7.

Here is the BBC's response to the questions about the footage that was unearthed yesterday, with my comments after each statement.

1. We're not part of a conspiracy. Nobody told us what to say or do on September 11th. We didn't get told in advance that buildings were going to fall down. We didn't receive press releases or scripts in advance of events happening...

"We didn't get told in advance that buildings were going to fall down." If this is true, then how on earth did the BBC report the collapse of Building 7 before it happened? Psychic clairvoyance? Of course they were told that WTC 7 was coming down, just like the firefighters, police, first responders and CNN were told it was coming down. They had to have had a source for making such a claim. The BBC is acting like the naughty little boy who got caught with his hand in the cookie jar. No one here is claiming the BBC are "part of the conspiracy," but their hideous penchant to just repeat what authorities tell them without even a cursory investigation (and with the Building they are telling us has collapsed mockingly filling the background shot of the report), is a damning indictment of their yellow journalism when it comes to 9/11...
