World Leaders' Praise Differs With U.S. View (washingtonpost.com)

World Leaders' Praise Differs With U.S. View (washingtonpost.com)
PARIS, Nov. 11 -- President Jacques Chirac, who provided Yasser Arafat with emergency medical care in his final days and an official ceremony befitting a head of state following his death, led a chorus of world statesmen Thursday in praising the Palestinian leader.

"With him disappears a man of courage and conviction who for 40 years has incarnated the Palestinians' fight for recognition of their national rights to nationhood," the French leader declared.

__ ARAFAT REMEMBERED __

Narrated Slide Show Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, 75, dies before his life-long dream of statehood for his people is realized.

President Vladimir Putin of Russia called Arafat "a great political leader of international significance." The Chinese president, Hu Jintao, called him "an outstanding leader of the Palestinian cause and . . . an outstanding politician."

At U.N. headquarters in New York, where Arafat once memorably addressed the General Assembly, flags were flown at half staff to honor the former guerrilla leader. Secretary General Kofi Annan praised him as "a symbol of national aspiration."

The Bush administration saw Arafat as an obstacle to Middle East peace and a sponsor of terrorism.

But many governments in Europe and throughout the world saw him as the legitimate leader of the Palestinian people and recall him as a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for signing the 1993 Oslo peace accords with Israel. They are sending foreign ministers to his funeral in Cairo, while the United States is sending an assistant secretary of state.

"This will reinforce the widely held view in America that the French in particular and Europeans in general are soft on terrorism, greatly opposed to Israel and perhaps anti-Semitic," said Charles Grant, director of the Center for European Reform, a think tank in London. "Everyone in Europe knows the Palestinian Authority was corrupt and Arafat was difficult, but we don't forget the very constructive role he played in the Middle East peace process for many years."

Capitol Hill Blue: Attorney General Nominee Advocates Loss of Freedom, Individual Rights

Alberto Gonzales advocated moves by the Bush administration that infringed on Constitutionally-guaranteed rights and urged a number of controversial actions in the war on terror. As President Bush's pick to be the nation's next attorney general, that work could place some bumps in Gonzales' road to Senate confirmation.
Bush announced Wednesday that he had chosen Gonzales, his 49-year-old White House counsel for almost four years, to be the first Hispanic to be the nation's top law enforcement officer.

Bush also must name a successor to Commerce Secretary Don Evans, whose departure was announced Tuesday at the same time John Ashcroft's resignation as attorney general was disclosed.

Other resignations could be on the way.

Bush sidestepped a question Wednesday about whether Secretary of State Colin Powell would remain in a second term. "I'm proud of my secretary of state," he told reporters after meeting with Powell earlier in the day. "He's done a heck of a good job."

In announcing his selection of Gonzales, the president described the Harvard-educated son of migrant farm workers as candid with advice and calm in a crisis - attributes echoed by those who know him. And Bush gave an unqualified endorsement of his work helping to develop the administration's legal strategy in the war on terror.

"His sharp intellect and sound judgment have helped shape our policies in the war on terror - policies designed to protect the security of all Americans, while protecting the rights of all Americans," Bush said during a brief Roosevelt Room ceremony. "My confidence in Al was high to begin with; it has only grown with time."

Others, worried that civil rights may be abused in the name of fighting terror, weren't so sure.

American Civil Liberties Union executive director Anthony Romero pleaded with the Senate to give Gonzales a "thorough thrashing" as it scrutinizes his work in the war on terror and on the USA Patriot Act anti-terrorism law. "There are some serious concerns that are already visible that need to be immediately addressed in any confirmation process," Romero said.

Another group, the liberal Alliance for Justice, said that much more needs to be known about Gonzales' vast body of behind-the-scenes work as White House counsel, including his oversight of legal opinions on a range of anti-terrorism issues to his selections of federal judicial nominees.

"He has provided the Bush administration with advice to sideline and ignore the rule of law," said president Nan Aron.

Gonzales drew criticism after the terrorist attacks in 2001 when he wrote a memo in which Bush claimed the right to waive anti-torture law and international treaties providing protections to prisoners of war. That position drew fire from human rights groups, who said it helped lead to the type of abuses uncovered in the Abu Ghraib prison scandal.

Specifically, Gonzales' memo said the Geneva Convention that had long governed the treatment of prisoners did not apply to al-Qaida or the war in Afghanistan. The memo said some of the Geneva Convention's provisions were "quaint."

Gonzales also has defended the administration's policy - essentially repudiated by the Supreme Court and now being fought out in the lower courts - of detaining certain terrorism suspects for extended periods without access to lawyers or courts.

But such doubters are likely to have a hard time persuading the Senate to seriously consider blocking Gonzales' appointment.

For one thing, Cabinet appointments typically get a much easier ride in the Senate than lifetime appointments to the Supreme Court - another job for which Gonzales has been widely considered to be in the running. And lawmakers from both political parties would be reluctant to be seen blocking the first Hispanic attorney general and risk alienating one of the nation's fastest-growing voting blocs.

"`Just give me a chance to prove myself,'" Gonzales said Wednesday, quoting a Hispanic prayer.

Two Senate Democrats normally critical of Ashcroft - one of the most powerful and polarizing members of Bush's Cabinet - sent positive signals about Gonzales' future on Wednesday.

"It's encouraging that the president has chosen someone less polarizing," said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. "We will have to review his record very carefully but I can tell you already he's a better candidate than John Ashcroft." Another Democrat, Sen. Byron Dorgan of North Dakota, said the Senate generally is likely to follow its tradition of allowing the president to choose his own team.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, expressed confidence Gonzales would be promptly confirmed.

And conservative legal experts had nothing but praise.

Richard Samp, chief counsel for the Washington Legal Foundation, called him a consensus-builder who has aggressively fought for the United States' ability to protect itself from terrorism.

"I'm very happy to see someone succeeding John Ashcroft who is going to be equally committed to fighting the war on terror," Samp said.

Bush advisers said two people would be naturals to succeed Gonzales. One is White House staff secretary Brett Kavanaugh, a lawyer who has been waiting nearly 16 months for confirmation on the influential U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.

Harriet Miers, a deputy chief of staff who was once Bush's personal lawyer, would be another candidate, one Bush adviser said.

For a stupid, gullible minute I thought maybe, just maybe, George W. Bush might learn something from the division and damage he's inflicted on this nation over the last four years.


But the lying son-of-a-bitch hasn't learned a damn thing. He will take the next four years and complete his mission of destroying what once was the greatest nation on earth.

Bush proved this Wednesday by replacing one hater of the U.S. Constitution with another - nominating right-wing zealot Alberto Gonzales to replace his head Nazi - John Ashcroft - as attorney general.

Jesus Christ, what a nose-thumbing, I-am-Lord-of-all-things move by a President hell-bent on destroying what little freedom we have left in this nation. Gonzales, as White House counsel, wrote the infamous memo that said U.S. soldiers in Iraq did not have to follow the rules of the Geneva Convention - the memo that led those in charge of the war to think prisoners could be tortured, abused and humiliated.

This is the same Alberto Gonzales who calls the Constitution an "outdated document," who advocates holding Americans without cause, incommunicado and without any right to counsel or freedoms that used to be taken for granted.

How could I have been so gullible as to believe Dubya would learn anything from the election? What in the hell was I thinking? Bush is, and always will be, a despot, a tyrant who could very well destroy a Republic that has stood for 200-plus years.

He calls a 51-percent victory in the Presidential election a "mandate" and claims he has "political capital" that he will spend to mold America into his image, which means every right-wing, fruitcake idea that he and his Looney Tunes party can ram through Congress and send to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for his rubber stamp.

During the next four years, Bush can stack the Supreme Court with his kind of goose-stepping justices to carry out his mission to destroy the Constitution and send America back into a Puritan age where heretics are hung, dissension is banned and freedom is expendable.

And while he and his cronies destroy America from within, hundreds - perhaps thousands - more Americans will die in his war of lies in Iraq.

Sadly, there isn't much we can do about it except resist whenever possible and pray that America can survive four more years with Bush at the helm. Maybe those who oppose his tyranny can rise up and boot enough Republicans out of Congress in the mid-term elections in 2006 to return some balance to government but these are the same people who gave us John Kerry so I wouldn't bet the farm.

America faces many dangers from its enemies and the number of enemies we face increases daily because of Bush's reckless actions. But America faces no greater danger or enemy than the pill-popping heretic who occupies 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.


 

IT'S NOT GEORGE"S WAR, IT'S GOD'S WAR !

I usually get up early and listen to C-Span's “Washington Journal” in the morning. I do so, because I get to hear people, regular people from around the country, call in and express their feelings.

This morning, I was particularly intrigued by a woman who called in with a distinctively Southern accent, who sounded like the product of an unholy union between retarded cousins. This inbred woman spoke like she just popped out of the movie DELIVERANCE ( you remember that epic with Ned Beatty, where they used the line “now squeal like a pig....Yeeeehaaaaw...oh yeah, Burt Reynolds starred in it too).

I could just envision her, in her tattered bathrobe, yellow stained fingers and teeth clenching a Marlboro, and plopped down in front of a small color television, with its rabbit ears mangled and twisted like coiled DNA...torn and worn King James Bible in hand, as she ranted and raved and did a bad job paraphrasing the Bible.

But, amidst her addled brain's rattling and vibrating, emitting noxious thoughts, and droning on in a West Virginian accent, it struck me that, in spite of the famous line uttered by Bush in the Michael Moore, Fahrenheit 9/11 film, “Some call you the elite, I call you my BASE.”, these are the real base of Bush. These are the simpleminded fools who pushed him over the top, IF one believes the election was fair.

Now, I am Southern born and bred. Unlike Bush, I was born in Texas, and have attended Texas schools all my life...not that IVY league bullshit he cavorted around in during his years in college.

And, I blame Bush for the exploitation of the feeble minded. The Nascar dads, who fill their Sundays watching cars on steroids go round and round and round, wasting gas and emitting a deafening roar, the “security moms“ wheeling the poor unfortunates born to them, around in MiniVans, the older people on fixed income who are stirred up when the words “homosexual“ or “gay“ appear in concert with marriage, or the really mentally challenged people who think the ultimate power in the universe personally told them to oppose abortion and hassle young ladies who go to these clinics seeking a solution to an unplanned pregnancy.

Do you think Bush cares about the plight of these poor people in the South?
Not on your tin type. For every rich person making over 200 K a year, there were hundreds of the intellecutally challenged, poor Southerners who are “agin queers marrying“ and think that abortion is the same thing as killing babies.

So, Bush appeals not to Homo sapiens , “thinking man“, but to the lowest common denominator.

This is immediately clear if you think about the fact that even Bush supporters, have generally admitted that Kerry won ALL televised debates.

So, WHY do these toothless wonders support Bush? Simple, because he has skillfully painted himself as “one of them“. He makes flubs while speaking, makes up words, and has that incredibly annoying habit of doing this little laugh, when nothing is said that is funny. This is the same vocal masturbation that people used to see on the Andy Griffith show. Usually, one noticed it the most when the village goobers met at the barbershop of Floyd (who always struck me as a paedophile). They would mix that odd little laugh with “yeah, yep“ and this was their form of verbal retort when people would talk about good fishing or the weather changing.

And, these are the SAME families that will be losing loved ones in the wars around the world that Bush will start.

I really think he is something of a loon. He seems to see himself as a cross between Gomer Pyle and Julius Caesar. But, problem is, he is a petty little alcoholic town idiot. You can put the town drunk, like Otis, again from the Andy Griffith show, in a suit and put him in the Oval Office, and he will still flub his speaking, and make a horrible mess of things.

Thus...I submit to you...George Walker OTIS Bush.

This web site is dedicated to discovering the bottom line truth to what really occurred on September 11, 2001. We encourage everyone to examine the facts presented here as well as other places, and then join with us by signing the petition to help force government officials to re-open the investigation into this tragic event. Another good source is Walden 3; painful questions as well as this letter from the founder of ReOpen911.

The response of the US Government made many wonder whether our government was involved in the attack, or whether they are so amazingly incompetent that they only appear to be involved. An incompetent government is as dangerous as a corrupt government, so we have a serious problem in either case!

We have publications as well as a DVD that presents many of the "lesser known" facts.

MARINE APCs APPEAR AT ANTI-WAR PROTEST IN WESTWOOD
LOS ANGELES, November 9, 2004 - At 7:50 PM, What were first reported to be tanks and now identified as Marine APCs showed up at an anti-war protest in front of the federal building in Westwood.
The APCs circled the block twice, the second time parking themselves in the street and directly in front of the area where most of the protesters were gathered.

Enraged, some of the people attempted to block the APCs, but police quickly cleared the street.

The people continued to protest the presence of the Marines, but after about ten minutes they drove off. It is still unclear as to why they were deployed to this location.

Report: Japan abandoning pacifism
Thursday, November 11, 2004 Posted: 3:09 AM EST (0809 GMT)

SYDNEY, Australia (Reuters) -- Japan is abandoning its pacifist past for a hard-headed, proactive security policy which will see it more willing to deploy troops, but complicate northeast Asian security, according to a new study titled "Unsheathing the Samurai Sword".

"This shift is evolutionary, not revolutionary, but it is gaining momentum and represents a defining watershed in Japan's post war security policy," analyst Alan Dupont said in his report for the Sydney-based Lowy Institute for International Policy.

Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi has been whittling down constitutional restrictions on troop deployments, starting with 1990s peacekeeping missions and more recently sending troops to Afghanistan and Iraq, according to the report, released Thursday.

"Afghanistan gave Koizumi the opportunity to demonstrate that the era of checkbook diplomacy was finally over and that henceforth Japan would pull its weight militarily," Dupont said.

"Iraq was an even greater break with Japan's pacifist tradition. Iraq signaled that Japan had crossed a political Rubicon," he said.

Public opinion in Japan for overseas troop deployment was rising, said Dupont, citing 35 percent in favor of the Iraq deployment prior to Japanese soldiers landing and 53 percent after, and 61.3 percent after three Japanese were kidnapped. (Full story)

Koizumi, a close ally of U.S. President George W. Bush, is thought to be leaning toward extending the stay of some 550 Japanese troops in Samawa, southern Iraq, when the mandate for their non-combat mission expires on December 14. (Full story)

Japan's Peace Constitution, drafted by the United States and signed after World War II, allows Japan's Self Defense Force (SDF) to be sent to Iraq but limits it to "non-combat zones."

Dupont said there was a real possibility Japan's pacifist constitution would be revised by the end of this decade, accelerating the creation of a deployable defense force.

Japanese militarism
Japan's pursuit of more proactive security policy was a response to the more threatening and volatile global security environment, the report said.

"Japan is moving away from its pacifist past towards a more hard-headed and outward looking security posture characterized by a greater willingness to use its SDF in support of its foreign policy and defense interests," Dupont said.

Dupont warned Japan's growing assertiveness would cause tensions within the region, particularly with China, because of its "historical baggage in Asia where old memories of past Japanese militarism have not completely faded."

But there was little likelihood of a reversion to Japanese militarism due to Japan's ageing population, geo-strategic vulnerabilities, energy dependence and mature democracy, he said.

"There is no political constituency for transforming the SDF into the kind of expeditionary force that would be necessary to sustain a new Japanese hegemony in Asia," Dupont said.

While Japan was modernizing its armed forces, its defense spending was still well below its regional neighbors and allies.

Japan has capped defense spending at one percent of GDP, Dupont said, compared with 4.1 percent in China, 3.3 percent in the United States and 2.8 percent in South Korea.

"Japan's foreign policy and defense elites envisage playing a more constructive role in regional and global affairs, free of constitutional shackles," Dupont said.

"A more assertive and militarily capable Japan will complicate the strategic equation in northeast Asia, placing a premium on preventive diplomacy," he said.

"If Japan can strike the right balance between excessive timidity and unbridled nationalism in defense and foreign policy, then its own security will be enhanced in conjunction with its neighbors."

==========SNIP=================
This is of concern to me. Germany and Japan are now
both great powers, and are doing fairly well economically.
The combination of the two countries during WW II was
dreadful. This needs watching.

 

Capitol Hill Blue: Arafat Dies in France

Arab leader Yasser Arafat has died at a military hospital in Paris.

Arafat, 75, suffered a brain haemorrhage on Tuesday at the French hospital where he was flown from the West Bank on October 29 and had lain in a coma. Officials maintained in public that he was alive, though several aides said privately that he was dead.

Palestinian sources said on Wednesday that Arafat's death could be announced within days and arrangements were being hastily made for a funeral in Cairo and burial at his West Bank headquarters.

Earth-moving equipment set to work digging up the grounds of Arafat's shell-shattered compound in Ramallah, which was to be turned into a shrine to the icon of Palestinian nationalism.

But adding to the confusion, Sheikh Tayseer al-Tamimi, chief Palestinian Islamic judge, told reporters after seeing Arafat at the military hospital in a Paris suburb: "He is sick and his condition is very difficult, but he remains alive."

"As long as there is a manifestation of life present, from movement to temperature in the body, then he is alive," said Tamimi, who recited Koranic verses at his bedside.

Saying Arafat was "at a very critical stage", Foreign Minister Nabil Shaath said Arafat's liver and kidneys had failed though his heart and lungs were still functioning.

"Let us respect the last hours of a dying man," French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin said on France 2 television.

Celebrations began in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, though, after reports broke that Arafat had shown signs of a miraculous recovery. Some fired guns and honked car horns, but Palestinian officials in Paris denied that there had been a change.

Admired by most Palestinians but reviled by many Israelis, Arafat would be laid to rest with his dream of a Palestinian state unrealised, a possible power struggle brewing and the threat of chaos in Palestinian territories looming.

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Arafat's longtime foe, told ministers the Palestinian president's death could usher in a new era in the Middle East but that would depend on whether the new leaders "end terror and incitement", Israel Radio said.

Palestinians blame Israel for the 4 years of violence in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Palestinian leaders huddled to debate their future, while ordinary Palestinians grew increasingly perplexed. "Is he dead or not dead?" said Ali Zaituna in Gaza. "We will only believe it when a Palestinian official appears and says it."

LEADERS RETURN HOME

Three senior officials -- Prime Minister Ahmed Qurie, Palestine Liberation Organisation Secretary General Mahmoud Abbas and Shaath -- returned from Paris on Wednesday.

At a leadership meeting, they reaffirmed that after Arafat's death they would follow laws calling for the parliament speaker, Rawhi Fattouh, to become interim president for 60 days until elections could be held.

Officials said Abbas, a reform-minded former prime minister and Arafat's deputy in the Palestine Liberation Organisation, emerged as the favourite to succeed him as chairman of the PLO, the Palestinians' highest decision-making body.

A senior security official said Qurie now ran the National Security Council, giving him control of Palestinian security bodies.

Officials said it had also been decided that Arafat would lie in state in Cairo after his death. The Egyptian government was planning to hold the ceremony at the airport.

A Palestinian official said Lebanese President Emil Lahoud and Tunisian President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali had confirmed plans to travel to Egypt, and Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad were also expected.

Shaath led a delegation of Palestinian officials to Cairo on Wednesday to discuss arrangements for the funeral of the man who spent 4 decades leading his people's fight for statehood.

After ruling out the burial in the holy city of Jerusalem that Arafat wanted, Israeli officials had said they would only allow him to be interred in the fenced-in Gaza Strip.

But in a move to defuse a potential row with the caretaker Palestinian leadership, Israel agreed to allow Arafat to be interred at his Ramallah compound.

Israel's security cabinet said it was "interested in the burial and funeral passing smoothly, so as to avoid causing any confrontations or unnecessary escalation."

Ministers decided to allow Arab leaders free access to Ramallah but would bar militants involved in the uprising from entering the city, political sources said. Most of the West Bank is under Israeli occupation.

Israeli security forces, on alert amid concerns Arafat's death might touch off violent Palestinian protest or stepped-up militant attacks, planned to encircle Ramallah for the burial.
