Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Another 911 is over

It is sad in two ways.  One is the sadness for people who died that day.  That is uncontested.  What is contested are the reasons why.

Since I have accepted as fact the official story is full of controversy, lies, cover-ups and fabrications I mourn for the loss of intelligence in the general media controlled American populace.  I see most of them as one looks upon ignorant children.  I see those who support it as arrogant children.  

There are growing numbers of us even though media never covers it.  We are not kooks or "hatters" but instead engineers, pilots, artists and writers.  Mainstream Americans, and we are mourning the death of America too.
Even granny knows.
Yes, there is a Southern slant to this but I am greatful for what they do know.

While most are glued to the propaganda of Iraq I'm taking an asset inventory of things we will need in the coming depression.  Who is going to loose which house, where can the kids go, you know normal stuff like that.

Can't wait for this day to be over and the depression of millions of lied to, mostly very good people will once again be over.

The other good thing is that winter is coming and the horsemanure pile won't smell as much.

Anniversaries... from MoA this day, by Bernhard:

Remember 9/11

September 11 was a catastrophe.

The event and its aftermath were heavily influenced by the shenanigans of Cheney, Kissinger, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and Bremer. The actions were based on bi-partisan support.  They led to thousands and thousands of maimed people and many dead.

History again demonstrated the urge of the U.S. to eliminate any government that doesn't support its model of greed. This again delivered hunger and poverty to a people that committed nothing but the heresy of independence.

The target country had been isolated by sanctions for quite some time. The economy was in bad shape. Then tanks rolled through the streets and the presidential palace was bombed.

After 'regime change' followed the implementation of the models of one of the most destructive economists, Milton Friedman.

The 'economic shock treatment', disguised as 'freedom', was aiming at privatizing the extraction of the countries resources for the benefit of U.S. companies. It destroyed the society's fabric.

The people protesting the machinations were exposed to state sponsered terrorism, imprisoned, tortured and executed.

It took many, many years for Chile to overcome the disaster.

9/11 was a very bad day in 1973. It was a bad day in 2001 too. Those two bad days were not unrelated.

9/11 was a very bad day in 1973. It was a bad day in 2001 too.

And, being 28 years apart, both were Tuesdays.

September 11ths around the world -- on Sept 11 1973, US-backed Pinochet forces rose to power in Chile to overthrow the democratically-elected Salvador Allende and Allende died in the presidential palace. On Sept 11 1990, American anthropologist Myrna Mack was murdered by US-backed Guatamalan security forces. On September 11, 1977 in South Africa Steve Biko, founder of the black consciousness movement, was being beaten in the back of a van by apartheid forces. He died in the early morning hours of Sept. 12, 1977. On 9/11 1993, in the midst of the US-backed coup in Haiti, Antoine Azenery was dragged out of a church by coup forces and murdered in broad-daylight. He had been commemorating a massacre of parishioners at the Saint John Boscoe church that had occurred five years earlier on September 11, 1988. Father Jean Bertrand Aristide had narrowly escaped death in that attack. He later became president of Haiti twice before being kidnapped by the US in support of another coup.

Editor's note: Ultimately, the budget for the 9/11 Commission was increased to $12 million and they were given 18 months to complete the investigation and issue their report. In comparison, $20 million was spent on the independent Columbia Accident Investigation Board's investigation of the 2003 Columbia space shuttle disaster, in which 7 astronauts were killed. This amount does not include an estimated $300 million spent on debris recovery of the space shuttle, nor tens of millions spent by NASA in support of the investigation. http://www.ksc.nasa.gov

Part of the latest horse droppings of US media comes in the form of light bulb legislation.  Let's all do our part to help the enviornment by buying energy efficient lights made by slaves making 65 cents an hour in sweatshops in a Communist totalitarian police state.  Don't break one either or you will instantly be over the TLV levels for toxic mercury.  
While there is no doubt we are making radically stupid decisions in regards to the enviornment the obvious response of supporting sweatshops seems like a poor answer.

Do we really need those cell phones and their watt sucking ugly towers every half mile?

Do stores have to be open 24/7 seven days a week?

Do we need 300 channel of useless and tasteless crap?

Do most people know a $20,000 solar system would power most needs of a home?
