VOLUME 2 -- "Riddles In Stone: The Secret Architecture of Washington, D.C."
PROGRESS UPDATE -- AS OF Monday 12/4/2006
Warning: Information Bold, Shocking, Audacious!
The total accumulation of of facts we have been able to uncover regarding the occult images in the Washington, D.C., government center, is so bold, so shocking, so arrogant and so fearlessly daring, we feel compelled to include this warning at the beginning of "Riddles In Stone". Quoting from Ralph Epperson's book, "The Unseen Hand", Page 83, as he describes the time the Bavarain Government moved against the Illuminati in 1783.
"The Bavarian government had discovered the philosophies and purposes of the Illuminati and more importantly, its desire to overthrow the Bavarian government. Hearings were held and the government abolished the order. But discovery of the organization was, perhaps, a blessing in disguise: the members fled the persecution of the Bavarian government and they took the Illuminati with them, establishing new societies all over Europe and America.
"The Bavarian government countered this expansion by warning other European governments about the exact purposes of the Illuminati, but the rulers of Europe refused to listen. Those decisions would come back to haunt these governments. As Nesta Webster observed:
"The fact that the rulers of Europe wouldn't believe the goals of the Illuminati is a problem that is recurring all over the world today. It is difficult for the observer to believe that such a giant, well-organized conspiracy does exist, and that the goals they envision for the world are real. This disbelief by the public is what fuels their success and it behooves the Conspiracy to plan their events in such a way that the truth becomes incredible and so preposterous that no one would believe that they were intentionally created."
"A Frenchman named Danton said this in French, and loosely translated, what he said means: 'Audacity, 'Audacity, always 'Audacity!"
We have discovered the plan whereby Washington, D.C. was created, a plan so extravantly extreme we are concerned that people will not believe it, and that many of viewers will dismiss our discoveries as "a chimera (a foolish fantasy)". We now realize that the Illuminized Rosicrucians and Freemasons who planned and built our Capitol laid their plans boldly in public, knowing that most people would find the truth so incredible and so preposterous that no one would believe it, even after it was revealed to them.
The facts which God has allowed us to uncover will drop your jaw in shock again and again and again. Please pray that we shall be able to tell this very explosive story in a manner in which God will be glorified and many eyes opened. We will be revealing images, monuments, paintings, and sculptures which no one has ever reported, and we have the expertise in the occult to properly interpret the bottom-line meaning of it all.
The total layout and design of our nation's Capitol tellings ONE extremely interesting over-arching story -- one which will shock and enlighten each and every viewer. We truly believe this video will be one of the most unique ever produced and released to the public.
We still have some expenses to pay on this video, plus we have to raise the money for the initial inventory. If you plan on buying "Riddles In Stone", but have not done so yet, please take advantage of our Pre-Publication Sale, where you save $5.00 and we can raise the money to complete this project.

Patience had her perfect work in the Lord Jesus,
and until the last day of the feast He pleaded with the Jews, even
as on this last day of the year He pleads with us, and waits to
be gracious to us. Admirable indeed is the longsuffering of the
Saviour in bearing with some of us year after year, notwithstanding
our provocations, rebellions, and resistance of His Holy Spirit.
Wonder of wonders that we are still in the land of mercy!
Pity expressed herself most plainly, for Jesus
cried, which implies not only the loudness of His voice, but
the tenderness of His tones. He entreats us to be reconciled. "We
pray you," says the Apostle, "as though God did beseech
you by us." What earnest, pathetic terms are these! How deep
must be the love which makes the Lord weep over sinners, and like
a mother woo His children to His bosom! Surely at the call of such
a cry our willing hearts will come.
Provision is made most plenteously; all is
provided that man can need to quench his soul's thirst. To his conscience
the atonement brings peace; to his understanding the gospel brings
the richest instruction; to his heart the person of Jesus is the
noblest object of affection; to the whole man the truth as it is
in Jesus supplies the purest nutriment. Thirst is terrible, but
Jesus can remove it. Though the soul were utterly famished, Jesus
could restore it.
Proclamation is made most freely, that every
thirsty one is welcome. No other distinction is made but that of
thirst. Whether it be the thirst of avarice, ambition, pleasure,
knowledge, or rest, he who suffers from it is invited. The thirst
may be bad in itself, and be no sign of grace, but rather a mark
of inordinate sin longing to be gratified with deeper draughts of
lust; but it is not goodness in the creature which brings him the
invitation, the Lord Jesus sends it freely, and without respect
Personality is declared most fully. The sinner must come to Jesus, not to works, ordinances, or doctrines, but to a personal Redeemer, who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree. The bleeding, dying, rising Saviour, is the only star of hope to a sinner. Oh for grace to come now and drink, ere the sun sets upon the year's last day!
No waiting or preparation is so much as hinted at.
Drinking represents a reception for which no fitness is required.
A fool, a thief, a harlot can drink; and so sinfulness of character
is no bar to the invitation to believe in Jesus. We want no golden
cup, no bejewelled chalice, in which to convey the water to the
thirsty; the mouth of poverty is welcome to stoop down and quaff
the flowing flood. Blistered, leprous, filthy lips may touch the
stream of divine love; they cannot pollute it, but shall themselves
be purified. Jesus is the fount of hope. Dear reader, hear the dear
Redeemer's loving voice as He cries to each of us,
(C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions"; Emphasis was in the original)
---------- This Weeks Hot News ----------
I. A frightening and shocking "Death by Dust" is now snatching the lives of the rescue workers of 9/11 - evidence points to the same type of nuclear radiation sickness suffered by the survivors of the atomic bombings against Nagasaki and Hiroshima!
Note carefully the inscription atop the Illuminati Card Game, pictured to the above left -- "Terrorist Nuke"! The creators of this card game had to have known that a micro-nuke was going to be used at the very bottom of each Twin Tower to guarantee implosion as planned.
NEWS BRIEF: "Death by Dust: The frightening link between the 9-11 toxic cloud and cancer", The Village Voice, November 28, 2006
"It was October 6, 2004, three years after Ernie Vallebuona's three-month stint as a rescue and recovery worker at ground zero in the wake of the 9-11 terrorist attacks, and he was hunched over and trembling, racked by a pain like nothing he had experienced in his 40 years of sound health. He had just returned to his Rockland County home after finishing the midnight-to-8 a.m. shift in the NYPD vice unit ... By the time he pulled into his driveway, the pain had grown excruciating, too horrible for him to even lie in bed that day. The chills swept over his body; so did the shakes. He called his doctor, who suggested ulcer medication."
"... for six months, he had noticed his body betraying him. His toes had reddened; his joints had stiffened. They throbbed in prickly pangs, as if glass shards were wedged underneath his skin. When his own heartbeat began to hurt, he had visited the family doctor, who diagnosed him with gout. He was told to drink cherry juice and take anti-inflammatory medicine. Neither worked."
"Later that day, he found himself at a gastroenterologist's office in Pomona, lying on a table, watching a nurse poke at his abdomen. She felt a lump and ordered tests. It would take a month to reach a definitive diagnosis of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphoid tissue. Evidently, Vallebuona had developed a golf-ball-sized mass in his abdomen that had grown so fast and so quick that pieces of it were dying and depositing into his blood, causing gout-like symptoms ... One week after that, he was at a Manhattan hospital, meeting his oncologist, hearing about the heavy-duty chemotherapy he would have to undergo over the next four months. At the visit, a nurse explained he had an aggressive cancer—a rare stage-three—and asked a battery of questions.
Vallebuona answered no to all the questions."
For several years now, Cutting Edge has been noting that animals and humans who were in close proximity to Ground Zero of the Twin Towers were developing mysterious symptoms, a malady commonly called "The 9/11 Cough". Since the Illuminati card - shown above - indicated that the Twin Tower attack was to be considered a "Terrorist Nuke", and since the rescue workers could not get close to the foundation of the Twin Towers for weeks because of the intense heat, we felt that a micro-nuke had been used to facilitate the implosion of the towers straight down, dropping the buildings "in their footprints".
Then, following our training on Depleted Uranium from a military doctor trained in a friendly foreign army, we further believed that the various sicknesses breaking out amongst the people who were close to the towers probably was uranium poisoning. At this point, you may well be protesting, that the people are dying of a variety of illnesses, not just one type of cancer. You are absolutely right, and that fact supports our contention quite well.
In NEWS1967, we report that a variety of illnesses is a common feature amongst our soldiers and Iraqi civilians dying of Depleted Uranium poisoning. Quoting a portion of this article:
"Remember the advice given us by that doctor of a foreign army trained in modern desert warfare warned us in May-June, 2003, that the uranium would act as a 'wild card', causing people to die of various ailments. While none could be 'officially' tied to D.U., the fact of the matter was that D.U. was most definitely at the bottom of all of them."
In Iraq, our soldier's bodies are fighting a number of toxic agents: 1) D.U. poisoning; 2) Toxic Sand Fleas whose bites deposit toxin in the body; 3) Toxic Vaccinations; 4) Dehydration to some degree because of the searing heat plus the body armor which most soldiers wear.
A combination of these four elements -- with uranium acting as the "wild card" -- is producing a wide variety of deadly illnesses, thus allowing the Pentagon to say that they just cannot identify any one single cause.
In the New York City health disaster associated with 9/11, victim's bodies are fighting a number of toxic agents: 1) Uranium poisoning from the micro-nuke; 2) Toxic chemicals released when the Twin Towers collapsed; 3) Asbestos fibers; 4) Wide variety of toxins released.
And, just as in Iraq, these elements -- with uranium acting as the "wild card" -- is producing a wide variety of deadly illnesses, thus allowing doctors to say that they just cannot identify any one single cause.
Now, let us return to this feature article in The Village Voice. After the specialists could not understand what was causing this very rare cancer, a cancer which may have been caused by exposure to insecticides and chemicals like benzene, a family member had a brilliant premonition.
" 'What about 9-11?' she asked. 'What about all that smoke and dust?' Only then did Ernie Vallebuona first consider the possibility that the events of September 11 could be the cause of his cancer ... This is the story of 9-11 and cancer."
We encourage you to read this Village Voice article all the way through, for it is quite lengthy. However, at one point, the author of the article linked the illnesses of the people in the vicinity of the Twin Towers directly to the survivors of the atomic bomb attack which American bombers carried out in 1945 against the Japanese cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Listen:
"In many ways, these illnesses suggest the slow but deteriorating health issues that faced the atomic-bomb survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, where thousands died in the years and decades that followed the United States' use of nuclear weapons. And that similarity has not been lost on David Worby, the 53-year-old attorney leading the joint-action suits on behalf of those workers who are already sick, and even dying. 'In the end', Worby declares, 'our officials might be responsible for more deaths than Osama bin Laden on 9-11'."
Once again, Cutting Edge teaching is verified by events. Through the revelations of New Age author, Bill Cooper, in his book, "Behold A Pale Horse", and the "smoking gun" revelation of the Illuminati Card Game that the attacks of 9/11 were known to members of the occult as far back as 1995, we have vigorously taught that Illuminati agents carried out this attack as a pretext to begin moving America into a dictatorship.
What did attorney Worby believe? "'In the end', Worby declares, 'our officials might be responsible for more deaths than Osama bin Laden on 9-11'."
Now, if this attorney will just take one more step, he will arrive at the proper understanding of 9/11 -- Osama bin Laden had nothing to do with the attacks, as the whole event was an Illuminati inside job!
II. Another example of nasty, frightful nuclear poisoning news came roaring out of London, where a former Russian spy was killed by a radiation dose of "Polonium 210", apparently passed to the victim in a spray. The only real question was whether this deadly attack was carried out by the Russian government or a Russian tycoon.
NEWS BRIEF: "Spy 'Poisoned By Radiation' ", Sky News, 24 November 2006
"A large quantity of radiation, probably from a substance called Polonium 210, has been found in the body of dead ex-Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko. The 'major dose' of alpha radiation was detected in his urine, said Government experts, who added that Polonium 210 is only dangerous if ingested. They also revealed that police have found radiation at three locations: his Muswell Hill home, a central London sushi bar where he ate shortly before falling ill, and a hotel where he had met two Russians that morning."
"Mr Litvinenko's supporters said he was killed because he was investigating the murder last month of journalist and fellow Putin critic Anna Politkovskaya."
Before he died, Litvinenko charged that Russian President Putin was responsible for his death. Other experts are not so sure.
NEWS BRIEF: "Russian Pols Blame Tycoon in Spy's Death", The Guardian (London), November 25, 2006
"MOSCOW (AP) - Poisoned former spy Alexander Litvinenko's deathbed message may have accused Russian President Vladimir Putin, but pro-Kremlin lawmakers and state-controlled television networks pointed the finger at a prominent Putin enemy in Britain - tycoon Boris Berezovsky ... 'The death of Litvinenko - for Russia, for the security services - means nothing', Valery Dyatlenko, a deputy head of the security committee in the lower parliament house, said on state-run Channel One television Friday, contending that neither the Kremlin nor Russia's intelligence agencies would have reason to kill him. 'I think this is another game of some kind by Berezovsky'.''
This next story is really very frightening, for it reveals how easy it is for a sophisticated enemy to kill anyone.
NEWS BRIEF: "How many more were poisoned?", Daily Mail, 25 November 2006
"As the deadliest poison known to man was revealed to have killed Russian exile Alexander Litvinenko, the question last night was: How many more lives could it claim? The 43-year-old former KGB officer was the victim of polonium 210, a radioactive element used as a trigger in nuclear weapons. It is so powerful that a lethal dose can be passed on through the body in sweat or saliva. So his widow Marina, 44, and ten-year-old son Anatole could have been contaminated just by kissing him as he fought for life in hospital. They are said to be at greatest risk."
"Chillingly, traces of polonium 210 have been detected at Itsu, the London sushi bar where Mr Litvinenko ate with a contact on November 1, at the four-star Millennium Hotel in Mayfair, where he met another associate that day, and at the family home in North London ... Only a speck of it would have been enough to prove fatal once it got into his system, probably by being slipped into his drink or on to food ... Whoever did this must have been expert in the dosage because giving him too much would have caused almost instant death while it took weeks for him to become gravely ill, giving the killer ample chance to escape."
How many more people might have been exposed to this type of poisoning?
NEWS BRIEF: "Thousands of passengers in radiation scare on British Airways: 33,000 alerted as radioactive traces found on two aircraft", Yorkshire Post, December 1, 2006
"The investigation into the death of former Russian
spy Alexander Litvinenko spread to 33,000 British Airways passengers
last night after radioactive traces were found on aircraft. Experts
found 'low levels of radioactive traces' on two aircraft at Heathrow
airport and were preparing to examine a third in Moscow, the airline
said. Mr Litvinenko, an ex-KGB man and a fierce critic of Russian
president Vladimir Putin, died last week of radiation poisoning.
The alert involves 221 flights within Europe, affecting an estimated
33,000 passengers and 3,000 staff.
Three aircraft were grounded.
""It has taken the three B767s out of service to enable forensic examination to be carried out. The initial results of the forensic tests has shown very low traces of a radioactive substance onboard two of the three aircraft."
A late-breaking news story has identified the nuclear plant from which the Polonium 210 had originated -- and that plant was in Russia.
NEWS BRIEF: "Deadly polonium traced to Russian nuclear plant", Daily Mail, 1 December 2006
"Alexander Litvinenko was most probably murdered by 'rogue elements' in the Russian state ... Investigators believe that while the former spy's assassination was not officially sanctioned by Vladimir Putin's government, the polonium 210 which killed him must have come from state nuclear laboratories ... The killers must have had access to the laboratories, indicating a level of state involvement, according to intelligence sources. Reports say the source of the polonium 210 has now been traced by British scientists working at the Atomic Weapons Establishment at Aldermaston to a nuclear power plant in Russia."
We may never know exactly who killed this former KGB spy, but the real story seems to lie in the reality that intelligence services working for either governments or exceedingly wealthy tycoons have the capability of killing someone with a tiny amount of radioactive material which can just be sprayed in the air in minute amounts!
Anyone is at risk of this type of assassination at any time.
III. As of this writing, the Palestinian terror group, Hezbollah, seems to be carrying out an attempted coup against the democratically elected Lebanese government of PM Siniora. Such a coup could devastate the political landscape of the Middle East!
NEWS BRIEF: "Siniora: Lebanese democracy is in danger", YNET News, November 30, 2006
"Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora says Lebanese democracy in danger after Hizbullah's call for people to 'take to streets' against government. Siniora to Lebanese people: Now is time to stand by your government. Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said Thursday he will not allow mass demonstrations called by Hizbullah to oust his government , warning that Lebanon's democracy is in danger. In a toughly worded address, he urged the Lebanese to rally behind his beleaguered government, saying only Parliament can take away his mandate. "We will not allow the overthrow of the democratic system, its foundations and its institutions ... We are staying in our place," Siniora said in a nationally televised address from his office on the eve of an expected massive protest by Hizbullah and its allies aimed at ousting his Cabinet.
" 'Lebanon's independence is threatened and its democratic system is in danger'," He said, adding: 'Do not be afraid and do not despair. We have a rightful cause. Threats will not deter us. Maneuvers and ultimatums will not terrorize us', he asserted."
Is it possible that Hezbollah could actually topple the government of Prime Minister Siniora? The Hezbollah leadership certainly thinks that is possible, as we consider the next two articles.
NEWS BRIEF: "Nasrallah to Lebanese: Take to streets", YNET News, November 30, 2006
"Hizbullah leader calls on Lebanon's residents to launch non-violent protest Friday in center of capital, in demand to establish unity government. 'Fouad Siniora's government failed,' he charges. . Hizbullah leaders and members of the Christian general Aoun on Thursday called on Lebanese residents to launch protests starting on Friday, in a demand to replace Fouad Siniora's government with a unity government."
"Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah said in a speech broadcast live on the al-Manar network that 'if we want to build a united Lebanon, we must establish a unity government' ... According to him, the decision to go out to the streets was made after the opposition was left with no other legal choice. He accused the government of wanting to lead a monopoly and said that it had failed in managing the country's business."
"Nasrallah told his supporters that the protest will begin in Beirut and will spread to all parts of the country. According to him, the next stage in the struggle would be to expand and escalate the demonstrations and demand that early elections are held. Hizbullah was part of Seniora's government, but about two weeks ago three ministers from the organization and from the Amal movement resigned from their jobs. This action threatened to lead to a violent confrontation between the government's opposers and its supporters."
Prime Minister Siniora felt so threatened that he ordered the Lebanese military to protect his headquarters.
NEWS BRIEF: "Beirut: Unprecedented security around Siniora’s office", YNET News, 1 December 2006
"The opposition in Lebanon , headed by the Hizbullah , is set to launch large-scale rally against the Lebanese government Friday afternoon, charging that the government is operating illegally. Since the early morning hours, armored vehicles surrounded Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora’s Beirut offices and hundreds of police officers took up positions in the area as part of an unprecedented security effort in advance of the mass protest."
Were the terrorist group, Hezbollah, able to actually overthrow the pro-Western and anti-Syrian government of Prime Minister Siniora, the political landscape would dramatically and instantly change. Israel immediately noted one major way in which the landscape would be permanently altered, and quite frankly, I had not thought of this possibility.
NEWS BRIEF: "Israel Warns: Hizbullah coup against Lebanon government could oust UNIFIL international peacekeeping troops", The Jerusalem Post, december 1, 2006
"Israeli defense officials expressed extreme concern Thursday over Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah's call for a massive protest Friday to bring down the Lebanese government, warning that UNIFIL might be expelled from Lebanon if Prime Minister Fuad Saniora were forced to leave office. Hizbullah and its allies in the parliamentary opposition called for a mass demonstration,which took place on in downtown Beirut on Friday afternoon, with the aim of bringing down Saniora's anti-Syrian coalition. If the shaky government falls, the Israeli defense officials warned, UNIFIL and the Lebanese Army might be forced from southern Lebanon, which, along with the Bekaa Valley, is Hizbullah's home ground."
If Hezbollah forces the international peacekeepers from southern Lebanon where they right now form a protective shield to Israel, Prime Minister Olmert might face the axe, as well. After all, one of his stated aims for the 33-day Lebanon War was to both destroy Hezbollah's missile stocks and to persuade the International Community to place a "vigorous" peacekeeping force on the border of Israel and Lebanon, a force which would prevent Hezbollah from launching any missile attacks and which would disarm the terrorist forces.
That "vigorous" peacekeeping force is now in place, and Israel has not suffered any attacks since the force reached its full force. Should a new Hezbollah Lebanese government force UNIFIL to leave, Israel's Prime Minister might be disgraced enought to be swept from office.
IV. March to the One World Religion continued as Pope Benedict XVI landed in Turkey to begin his much-publicized visit to this Islamic nation. The Pope intended to visit both the Orthodox Church leadership and a revered Islamic mosque.
Henry Kissinger must have authorized this trip!
NEWS BRIEF: "Pope turns focus to Christian schism", News Observer, November 30, 2006
"ISTANBUL, TURKEY - Pope Benedict XVI turned Wednesday from efforts to repair his damaged relations with Muslims to the central aim of his trip to Turkey: to help heal the 1,000-year rift between the once-united Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches."
When I first read of the Pope's trip to Turkey, I thought he was going there primarily to soothe relations between Catholics and Muslims. However, this first sentence reveals that the primary purpose of Pope Benedict's trip was to unite the Catholic and Orthodox Churches! This is purely Ecumenism -- the gathering of all the religions of the world into a single Global System.
Furthermore, the Roman Catholic Pope is taking the lead in achieving this religious union -- just as the Illuminati planned for him to do, as the future head of the New World Order Religion (Read NEWS1052 for full details). Now, let us return back to our featured article, noticing the ecumenical prayer the Pope utters.
"In a prayer service at the Patriarchal Church of St. George .... Benedict said, 'It gives me great joy to be among you, my brothers in Christ, in this cathedral church, as we pray together to the Lord and call to mind the momentous events that have sustained our commitment to work for the full unity of Catholics and Orthodox'."
Note that the Pope claims that the Orthodox Christian is a "brother in Christ" to the Roman Catholic. This kind of unity is only possible through the Illuminati notion that churches need to be united on the basis of that doctrine upon which they can agree, and ignore any doctrine upon which they cannot agree!
"... Benedict faced a far friendlier audience with his fellow Christians, a tiny minority in Istanbul, than he had on Tuesday, the first day of his visit, reaching out to Muslims offended by a speech he gave two months ago, which Muslims felt equated Islam with violence."
The Pope also visited an important Islamic mosque, taking off his shoes and offering a silent prayer with a powerful Imam standing next to him. This next news story illustrates this reality.
NEWS BRIEF: "Pope prays with top Muslim cleric at Turkish mosque", The Jerusalem Post, November 30, 2006
"Pope Benedict XVI prayed alongside an Islamic cleric in one of Turkey's most famous mosques Thursday in a dramatic gesture of outreach to Muslims after outrage from the pontiff's remarks linking violence and the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad ... 'This visit will help us find together the way of peace for the good of all humanity," the pope said before leaving the 17th-century Blue Mosque in only the second papal visit to a Muslim place of worship. Benedict's predecessor, John Paul II, visited a mosque in Syria in 2001."
This next segment shows the effect of Henry Kissinger being an adviser to the Pope.
"The mosque visit was added to Benedict's schedule as a 'sign of respect' during his first papal trip to a Muslim nation, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, the Vatican spokesman, said last week."
United Religions rule! The specter of the False Religious Prophet of Revelation 13:11-18 is looming large for the peoples of the world!
V. Suddenly, the specter of a simultaneous military defeat in both Afghanistan and Iraq raises it quite ugly head. It is quite possible that both of President Bush's post/911 wars are going to be badly defeated by the lowly insurgent forces of each country!
NEWS BRIEF: "Abysmal failure of NATO countries at Riga summit meeting to commit more troops to Afghanistan will further encourage a countrywide Taliban offensive", International Herald Tribune, December 1, 2006
"The abysmal failure of NATO countries at the Riga summit meeting this week to commit more troops to Afghanistan will further encourage a countrywide Taliban offensive, and portends much greater interference by neighboring states - all staking their claims as they see the West giving up the ghost on Afghanistan."
When President Bush was re-elected, he immediately began to press NATO to commit troops to his war in Afghanistan. With great fanfare, NATO did just that. However, the new Western commanders simply followed the same American formula, so the war against the Taliban simply limped along, with no end seemingly in sight.
However, beginning early in 2006, the Taliban began to demonstrate new vigor and capability - undoubtedly coming from Iran.
Soon, we began to hear calls from NATO commanders that they needed more manpower; these calls were rejected by civilian leadership. Now, the Taliban clearly believes she has NATO "on the ropes", and headed for defeat. As this article, above, clearly states, the Taliban views the West as "giving up the ghost" on Afghanistan.
President Bush is now facing the bleak prospect of both his wars following 9/11 ending in abject defeat!
"Germany, Spain, Italy and France, which refused to allow their troops in Afghanistan to go south to fight the Taliban, and other member states who refused to commit fresh troops or equipment, may well be held responsible for allowing Afghanistan to slip back into the hands of the Taliban and their Qaeda allies."
If this twisted logic seems familiar, it should, for it is the same lame rhetoric which President Bush and his Republican Party tried to force down the throats of Democrats opposed to his wars -- not just during the 2006 election, but for the past five years! No one really seems to want to question the wisdom of invading sovereign countries in the first place; no, once those ill-conceived invasions begin to sour, the perpetrators try to hide behind the concept that, if people do not want to "throw good money after bad", those people are defeatists and are unpatriotic.
Further, when the war finally ends in defeat, the perpetrators will seek to avoid responsibility and hang the war's loss on those who refused to allow the useless conflict to continue.
Can you see the effectiveness of brilliant propaganda?
NEWS BRIEF: "Powell says world should recognize Iraq at civil war", Reuters News, November 29, 2006
"DUBAI (Reuters) - Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell said on Wednesday Iraq had descended into civil war and urged world leaders to accept that 'reality'. Powell's remarks came ahead of a meeting between Bush and Iraqi prime minister Nuri al-Maliki in the Jordanian capital to discuss the security developments in Iraq. 'I would call it a civil war', Powell told a business forum in the United Arab Emirates. 'I have been using it (civil war) because I like to face the reality..."
In this statement, CFR's Colin Powell seems to be chiding President Bush for not wanting to "face the reality". Indeed, the White House seems to be in a full state of denial. Even as no one in the Bush Administration is allowed to use the words, "civil war", that kind of conflict rages supremely on the ground.
"President George W. Bush denied on Tuesday that sectarian violence had reached the scale of civil war. He said the latest wave of violence was part of a nine-month-old pattern of attacks by al Qaeda militants aimed at fomenting sectarian tension ... Bush is under growing pressure to find a new policy to curb sectarian strife in Iraq and to secure an exit for 140,000 U.S. troops.
Did you notice the words, "to secure an exit"?
ABC News, a mainline news organization, broke a story which is shocking only because it is coming from such a controlled news source. However, typical of a mainline opinion column, the reason why President Bush lost this war is terribly twisted. Rather than offering the truth, this columnist offers the standard party line -- we did not spend enough money to win the war. Not once are the real questions asked, "did we initiate this war on a lie", and "was it even necessary"?
Let us now review this article:
NEWS BRIEF: "U.S. Seems to be Preparing for Withdrawal From Iraq: It's Hoped the U.S. Will Never Enter Such a War Again", ABC News, Nov. 27, 2006
"October 20, 2006, was a critical date in the Iraq War ... It was the date that Americans demonstrated they were tired of this war and had lost their will to wage it. Typical of a 21st century milestone, this event was not measured by a statistical poll with sophisticated metrics. Instead, it was seen in the response to the theatrical release that day of a movie about another war, in which personal sacrifice and national support were central themes. Clint Eastwood's 'Flags of our Fathers' was released with great marketing fanfare and received uniform critical appraisal, but to describe it politely, the box-office revenue disappointed. The American audience's reaction to 'Flags of Our Fathers' was the canary in the coal mine of our national will. The explosion followed 18 days later, when the Democratic Party administered what President Bush called a 'thumping' to the Republican Party in midterm congressional elections."
"Marketing gurus will tell you that price matters. You get what you pay for. The war on terror is no different. It has been waged on the cheap, and the results reflect the stinginess of the strategy ... we have engaged in understaffed operations that experts like Gen. Shinseki foresaw would require five times the allocated troops."
"Last week, Vice President Cheney began reiterating that Iraq is central to the war on terror and that quick withdrawal would leave the United States weaker ... Given that there was no terrorist network in Iraq before the war and now there is, Cheney has forever lost credibility ..."
Now, this ABC columnist gets to the heart of the matter.
"In the end, the U.S. military will withdraw from Iraq. The only debate is whether that withdrawal will be sooner or later, massive or staged, with or without the chaos of the evacuation of Saigon more than 30 years ago. The terrorism, murders and torture now going on in Iraq between different militias and religious factions are barometers of the progress of de facto partitioning along ethnic and religious lines that is currently under way. The best indication of the inevitability of withdrawal is the request by U.S. generals for 20,000 more troops. Twenty thousand more 'boots on the ground' will not win this war. They will only provide the additional force for an orderly withdrawal."
This portion of the ABC analysis is absolutely correct: the death knell to President Bush's war in Iraq was sounded when the Pentagon announced that they were going to temporarily increase the numbers of troops on the ground by about 20,000. That was a number designed to protect a retreating force.
In fact, that force may already be retreating, as this next story indicates.
NEWS BRIEF: "Pentagon Considers Moving Troops From al-Anbar Province to Baghdad: Major Strategic Shift Considered to Secure Iraqi Capital", ABC News, November 28, 2006
"ABC News has learned that Pentagon officials are considering a major strategic shift in Iraq, to move U.S. forces out of the dangerous Sunni-dominated al-Anbar province and join the fight to secure Baghdad ... There are now 30,000 U.S. troops in al-Anbar, mainly Marines, braving some of the fiercest fighting in Iraq. At least 1,055 Americans have been killed in this region, making al-Anbar the deadliest province for American troops. The region is a Sunni stronghold .... and has been a place of increasing frustration to U.S. commanders. In a recent intelligence assessment, senior Marine Intelligence Officer in al-Anbar, Col. Peter Devlin, concluded that without a massive infusement of more troops, the battle in al-Anbar is unwinnable."
The exact wording of this intelligence assessment is quite stark.
" 'Despite the success of the December elections, nearly all government institutions from the village to provincial levels have disintegrated or have been thoroughly corrupted and infiltrated by al Qaeda in Iraq'.
Did you catch that key understanding? "... nearly all government institutions from the village to provincial levels have disintegrated or have been thoroughly corrupted and infiltrated"!
The American military is beginning to lose control of key segments of the countryside, even with American troops carrying out the fighting.
"Faced with that situation in al-Anbar, and the desperate need to control Iraq's capital, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Peter Pace is considering turning al-Anbar over to Iraqi security forces and moving U.S. troops from there into Baghdad. 'If we are not going to do a better job doing what we are doing out [in al-Anbar], what's the point of having them out there?' said a senior military official."
Therefore, the plan, as apparently envisioned by Generals Casey and Abizaid, is to pull American troops out of this troubled province and turn control over to Iraqi forces, which really means that these American generals have resigned themselves to losing control of this key province. Within a very short time after turning the province over to Iraqi forces, the insurgents will be in firm control -- just as occurred in Vietnam so many years ago.
Now, let us examine still more parallels with the Vietnam War.
VII. Parallels between the current Iraq War and the Vietnam War continue to abound. Did President Bush and his "Neo-Cons" learn from Vietnam how to efficiently lose this war?
NEWS BRIEF: "Bush Promises Speedier Turnover of Security Responsibility to Iraq", Associated Press, November 30, 2006
"AMMAN, Jordan (AP) -- President Bush said Thursday the United States will speed a turnover of security responsibility to Iraqi forces but assured Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki that Washington is not looking for a 'graceful exit' from a war well into its fourth violent year. Under intensifying political pressure at home, the American and Iraqi leaders came together for a hastily arranged summit to explore how to stop escalating violence that is tearing Iraq apart and eroding support for Bush's war strategy ... There were no immediate answers for mending the Shiite-Sunni divide that is fueling sectarian bloodshed in Iraq or taming the stubborn insurgency against the U.S. presence."
"Bush, meanwhile, continued to reject drawing Shiite-led Iran into helping Iraq in its struggle for peace. 'I appreciate the prime minister's views that the Iraqis are plenty capable of running their own business and they don't need foreign interference from neighbors that will be destabilizing the country', he said. Al-Maliki, though, seemed open to the possibility of Tehran, as well as Damascus, getting involved. A bipartisan commission on Iraq that will unveil recommendations next week is expected to urge direct diplomacy with Iran and Syria, America's chief rivals in the Middle East."
When President Bush decided to speed up the turnover of security to the inept Iraqi security forces, he was acting in parallel to the Vietnam War. Time and time again, in the 18 months prior to the American withdrawal, President Bush and his National Security Adviser, Henry Kissinger, assured the country that the South Vietnamese were quite capable of assuming their own security responsibilities. Time and time again, the timetable to transfer that responsibility seemed to be speeding up.
Yet, privately, we learned much later that Kissinger was secretly arranging a surrender to North Vietnam, asking only that a respectable period of time take place between the time American forces quit the country and the time the North Vietnamese finally struck across the border to take control of South Vietnam.
NEWS BRIEF: "New view on Iraq: We've done all we can for them", By Thomas E. Ricks and Robin Wright, The Washington Post, reprinted by The Seattle Times, November 30, 2006
"From troops on the ground to members of Congress, Americans increasingly blame the continuing violence and destruction in Iraq on the people most affected by it: the Iraqis. Even Democrats who have criticized the Bush administration's conduct of the occupation say the people and government of Iraq are not doing enough to rebuild their society. The White House is putting pressure on the government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, and members of the bipartisan Iraq Study Group have debated how much to blame Iraqis for not performing civic duties."
Once we thoroughly destroyed the very infrastructure of Iraq, devastated most of her towns and cities, and spread deadly Depleted Uranium dust everywhere so that so many people are getting sick and dying, how can we expect that they can "rebuild their own society"?
Nevertheless, in Vietnam, it was very common for American military and civilian leaders to blame the South Vietnamese for all shortcomings.
VIII. The "bi-partisan" panel headed by CFR's James Baker is about to issue its recommendations. Would you be shocked to learn that his plan may well call for the military to retreat from certain areas of Iraq so that Baghdad can be "secured"? This is another Vietnam parallel, and more proof of our earlier story detailing how American troops are being pulled back in a strategic maneuver in order to "secure Baghdad".
NEWS BRIEF: "Bipartisan Iraq Panel to Recommend Pullback of Combat Troops: 15 Brigades Would Gradually Stand Down Under Plan", The New York Times, November 30, 2006
"WASHINGTON, Nov. 29 — The bipartisan Iraq Study Group reached a consensus on Wednesday on a final report that will call for a gradual pullback of the 15 American combat brigades now in Iraq but stop short of setting a firm timetable for their withdrawal ... unless the government of Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki believed that Mr. Bush was under pressure to pull back troops in the near future, “there will be zero sense of urgency to reach the political settlement that needs to be reached.”
"The report recommends that Mr. Bush make it clear that he intends to start the withdrawal relatively soon, and people familiar with the debate over the final language said the implicit message was that the process should begin sometime next year. The report leaves unstated whether the 15 combat brigades that are the bulk of American fighting forces in Iraq would be brought home, or simply pulled back to bases in Iraq or in neighboring countries ... From those bases, they would still be responsible for protecting a substantial number of American troops who would remain in Iraq, including 70,000 or more American trainers, logistics experts and members of a rapid reaction force."
What you are witnessing here, folks, is the beginnings of the plan to pull American forces back, knowing full well that the Iraqi insurgency is going to take over the vacated territory very quickly after the pullback is completed. Iraq is going to fall to the insurgency, piece by piece, until only a few enclaves are going to be held by American forces.
The only question is whether American troops can retreat in peace or whether they will retreat under deadly fire. We are literally likely to see the American dog limping away with his tail between his legs.
Nothing could discredit President Bush more terribly. But, Cutting Edge has been predicting this kind of utter embarrassment since February, 2004 (Read NEWS1929 for full details)
What "neighboring countries" could be home to American troops? A check on a map of the region reveals that only Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia could offer this kind of protective buffer. Is that the real reason Vice President Cheney was in Saudi Arabia last week?
This strategic retreat is another Vietnam parallel, for American forces consistently ceded control of the countryside to the North Vietnamese as they focused on controlling the cities during the latter stages of the war.

"Whom do we thank?" by Berit Kjos
The UN has little tolerance for the God who is our Father. Instead it welcomes the mother goddess of the Intuit people, the pantheistic gods of the world's cultures, and an evolving union of all religions. Any alternative to Biblical Christianity -- including Islam -- strengthens its assaults on the "poisonous certainties" of God's Word.
A recent UN book for children, Tore and the Town on Thin Ice, fits right in. In fact, this short tale published by United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) promotes three key strategies behind today's global transformation. --
Dear reader, is this your mournful plight? Warned of the judgment to come, bidden to escape for your life, and yet at this moment not saved! You know the way of salvation, you read it in the Bible, you hear it from the pulpit, it is explained to you by friends, and yet you neglect it, and therefore you are not saved. You will be without excuse when the Lord shall judge the quick and dead. The Holy Spirit has given more or less of blessing upon the word which has been preached in your hearing, and times of refreshing have come from the divine presence, and yet you are without Christ.
All these hopeful seasons have come and gone--your summer and your harvest have past--and yet you are not saved. Years have followed one another into eternity, and your last year will soon be here: youth has gone, manhood is going, and yet you are not saved. Let me ask you--will you ever be saved? Is there any likelihood of it? Already the most propitious seasons have left you unsaved; will other occasions alter your condition? Means have failed with you--the best of means, used perseveringly and with the utmost affection--what more can be done for you?
