Turkey Shoot II?

From whatreallyhappened:
Remember, when we attack them without provocation, it's called "Operation Enduring Freedom", but when they fight back, it's called "Terrorism".

From birdman:

According to Professor Ayoub all of major religious authorites in the Islamic world have issued official declarations binding on all Moslems declaring that an attack on Iraq is to be considered an attack on Islam and that all Moslems should respond by attacking American and British institutions wherever possible. The important religious scholars of Egypt and Saudi Arabia and even Iran have issued official fatwahs.

Professor Ayoub advises Americans to keep a low profile.

In 1915 when such a fatwah was issued against Great Britain for attacking Turkey, two seventy year old Turkish workers who had lived in Australia for decades took their rifles and fought to the death although completely isolated and in a hopeless position.

Professor Ayoub says that agreement of all of these religious authorities is unprecedented.

Mark Twain - The War Prayer - the bombs (officially) fly tonight. A good time to (re)read and digest exactly what those who favor this war are asking for. Remember, America is the aggressor in this war. You can argue till you're blue in the face about whether Saddam might attack us in the future. He hasn't yet attacked. Our government is criminally wrong to start this war. [whatreallyhappened]

"You have heard your servant's prayer -- the uttered part of it. I am commissioned of God to put into words the other part of it -- that part which the pastor -- and also you in your hearts -- fervently prayed silently. And ignorantly and unthinkingly? God grant that it was so! You heard these words: 'Grant us the victory, O Lord our God!' That is sufficient. the whole of the uttered prayer is compact into those pregnant words. Elaborations were not necessary. When you have prayed for victory you have prayed for many unmentioned results which follow victory -- must follow it, cannot help but follow it. Upon the listening spirit of God fell also the unspoken part of the prayer. He commandeth me to put it into words. Listen!

"O Lord our Father, our young patriots, idols of our hearts, go forth to battle -- be Thou near them! With them -- in spirit -- we also go forth from the sweet peace of our beloved fire sides to smite the foe. O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with little children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames of summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring Thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it -- for our sakes who adore Thee, Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimage, make heavy their steps, water their way with their tears, stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet! We ask it, in the spirit of love, of Him Who is the Source of Love, and Who is the ever-faithful refuge and friend of all that are sore beset and seek His aid with humble and contrite hearts. Amen.

Henry L. Marconi at Pravda - Iraq: the War Started Friday - Keep your browsers tuned to english.pravda.ru. You won't be getting real news about this war from any of the mainstream U.S. sources. [grabbe]

Further to numerous news stories about the presence of US, British and Australian special forces inside Iraq, fresh reports seem to suggest the American-led offensive already started last Friday.

Usually well informed DEBKA FILE reports that US and British commandos crossed into Iraq from Kuwait, occupying a number of Iraqi oil fields. In addition, Western aircraft started flying some 600 bombing sorties per day. Strategic B1 bombers have been used against targets positioned outside the 'no fly zones' without any attempt to disguise the new attacks.

Randy Lavello at Prison Planet - FEMA Detention Camps: Re-inventing the Mousetrap - maybe this is what "red alert" will mean. [grabbe]

The trap was set long ago, yet the bait hadn't been placed... until now. We now know the lure to this elaborate trap, known as FEMA's 'relocation' camps, is 'safety' from terrorism. Strange, to know these camps are in place doesn't make me feel any safer. But why would anyone want to put troops on the street, and citizens in 'camps?' Well, this scenario has been the dream of tyrants since the dawn of man. And as history tells us, once in a 'camp,' people never get released - only freed or killed.

We know that the admitted procedure in case of a chemical, biological, or radiological attack is to declare a national state of emergency and implement martial law, which gives dictatorial power to the president. Let us not forget Executive Order 11000 which provides for the seizure of all American people for work forces under Federal supervision, (splitting up families where necessary.) This Executive Order was signed by JFK forty years ago. Could this order, among others have caused him to state ten days before he was assassinated: 'The high office of the president has been used to foment a plot to destroy the American's freedom and before I leave office, I must inform the citizen of this plight'? Well, these work forces are still standard operating procedure if martial law is declared, and since another terrorist attack has been guaranteed by our own intelligence agencies, martial law is therefore inevitable as well. There is also the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act which, recently enacted, will allow quarantines and forced vaccination. Strangely, this act also allows for the commandeering of drugs and firearms. Why would a gun-grabbing law be placed in a bill about vaccinations and medication confiscation?

George F. Smith at Laissez Faire Electronic Times - Is Lady Liberty a Terrorist? - how will the minions of the Amerikan Empire deal with the Statue of Liberty now that they have extinguished her flame? [grabbe]

The Lady arrived here in 350 pieces and was assembled on her pedestal in four months. She can always be disassembled. Of course, the Administration could simply have her bombed out of existence, since she stands in opposition to their policies and is, therefore, a terrorist.

With the Lady gone, Big Brother can create a memorial honoring the New Liberty of diversity, privilege, and empire -- the New Liberty, where sacrifice to government goals is our true calling, where patriotism is obedience to state decree, where government-business cabals determine who will be expended for special interests; the New Liberty, where unrestrained government power is our only hope for freedom.

The form of this new memorial will follow politically enlightened lines. There will be more than one person standing on the pedestal; one representing government will be superior to the others; the government person could be a popular politician like Hillary Clinton; the inferior statues will gaze gratefully at their superior; all will be minorities. The government statue will bear a thunderbolt in her hand instead of a torch. The government statue's eyes will be anything but "mild." A representative from The Weekly Standard will author the pedestal inscription. And most critical of all, the memorial will be built at taxpayer expense.

As of right now I'd swap George Bush for Jacques Chirac in a New York second and throw in Donald "Reckless Mouth" Rumsfeld as a bonus. French President Chirac might have a rascally side, but he at least has better sense than to light a match to see what's in that gasoline tank called the Middle East. I fear those "serious consequences" referred to in United Nations Resolution 1441 will apply to us as well as to Saddam Hussein. I'm a great believer in not interrupting the naps of canines, and we're about to wake up every pooch in the billion-plus Muslim world.
