The United Nations Security Council (UN) in all its pompous and hypocritical glory passed Resolution 1441 on November 8, 2002. The resolution endorses unrestricted access by weapons inspectors to any sites in Iraq and “…warns Iraq that it will face serious consequences” for failure to comply. The next day 1200 anti-war activists rallied at the Ohio Statehouse, many pledging to refuse and resist, and some vowing to oppose this war by any means necessary.

And here’s the reason why: the one country in the world that Resolution 1441 is most applicable to is George Bush’s United States of America. Bush the Lesser, a victim of “dry-drunk syndrome,” told an invitation-only audience of Fourth Reich fanatics in Cincinnati, Ohio on October 7, 2002 that Iraq posed “clear evidence of peril.” That very same day, CIA Director George Tenet wrote a letter to Congress refuting everything that Bush had told his adoring Deutschlanders.

“Baghdad for now seems to be drawing a line short of conducting terrorist attacks or with C.B.W. (chemical or biological warfare) against the United States. Should Saddam conclude that a U.S.-led attack could no longer be deterred he would probably become much less constrained in adopting terrorist actions,” Tenet said.

Facing the loss of up to 40 seats in the midterm election, Junior decided to use Nazi-style propaganda to turn Saddam Hussein, a pan-Arab Bathist into Osama bin Laden, Saddam’s pan-Islamic arch enemy. Luckily for Bush, you can never underestimate the intelligence of the American people. They love to buy the hype, whether it’s burgers, malls or athletic footwear fashioned by exploited peasants in the Third World.

In his speech, Bush put forth his new doctrine of “pre-emptive war,” that’s really an old doctrine that has nothing to do with the situation. “Pre-emptive war” is justified under international law when enemy troops are amassed on your borders ready to attack. Bush, Jr. obviously hasn’t consulted a map or satellite photos. All we’ve got is two oceans, a friendly Canada and a friendly, if not exploited and polluted Mexico on our borders. What Bush is really talking about is “preventative war.”

Under Bush’s doctrine of preventative war, we attack and kill tens of thousands of Iraqis and steal the 110 billion barrels of oil reserve in their ground – because although they don’t have nuclear weapons now, or delivery systems for weapons of mass destruction, at some time in the future they may be a threat. I have no doubt that in Bush’s mind, he’s firmly convinced that Jesus accidentally put that Texas crude under Iraqi soil and he, his father, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld are entitled to kill as many Arab women and children necessary to get our oil.

The last time the doctrine of preventative war was put forward as a justification for plundering and slaughtering the people of other nations was at the Nuremberg trial by the Nazi leadership. We didn’t believe Third Reich propaganda then, we shouldn’t believe Fourth Reich propaganda now.

The reality is, the United States has the largest arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in the world. The U.S. is the only nation that used nuclear weapons against two civilian populations in a war. Go to the web and search for “Joint Vision for 2020,” the U.S.’s plan for quote “full spectrum dominance” of the globe.

Yes – there is a country that uses chemical and biological weapons. It is the United States military apparatus. Recall that it wasn’t Saddam Hussein who sent Grade A, trillion spores per gram, U.S. military anthrax to Democratic Senators and U.S. media outlets in an open attempt to intimidate them and silence their opposition. No, my friends, that was William Patrick III and the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases at Fort Detrick, Maryland. It’s Patrick and the U.S. Army that turned wet clusters of bacteria into fine asbestos-like spores of dry powder to be sent in the mail. Bush says “Believe, obey, fight. Thousand year Reich!” We say, “They attack Iraq, we take the streets!” Democracy is in the streets.
