At the moment the majority of Australians are against
(a) a war with Iraq and (b) an extra tax/levy to pay
for the war.  So, how does PM Howard turn the tide of
opinion?  Probably with USA help.  You'll notice in the
follow extracts from speeches given at the UK rally a
report that Diego Garcia is a loaded arsenal with
weapons including nuclear on this island in the Indian
Ocean.  Also, America is pushing onto our Government
that they turn Lancelin (66 kilometres north of Perth)
and one of our favourite places to visit, into a
harbour for their vessels to come for repair and so
forth.  I've protested and so are the Greens Party.  I
don't know what response they've had from Government
but mine to State Premier and Commonwealth Minister for
Defence have been ignored by both to date. 

This is an extrapolation on original insight - America
will drop the missile/bomb on Garden Island naval base
(after all they plan to build another one up the north
of the coast) and blame it on Iraq, thereby justifying
ours and their bombing of Iraq and bring some hostile
public opinion behind them again!!  Governments who can
commits acts of terror and get away with it - yours for
being agents in events of 9/11, ours for being agents
in drowning boat people - would have no compunction
about pulling that one off!!

They might do that, or they might blow up something in
Europe, or whatever.  The problem with predicting is
that they can strike anywhere, and they love to
surprise people.

Dear Jeff,

Just a few weeks ago many Australians saw a TV
interview with a somewhat gruff US Ambassador to OZ
who, seemingly upset with the prevalent (majority)
popular objection of Australian citizens to Australia's
involvement in the planned US military invasion of Iraq
(or "Regime Change" as it has become known in extant
"Poli-Speak"), warned us that Australia was not immune
to Al Qaeda style terrorist action. Crazy as it seems
at first sight many who saw this interview gleaned his
attitude to actually be an unspoken but implied threat
of terrorist action if we did not mend our wayward
non-compliant attitudes ....................

Our OZ ways have included a rising anguish at the
treatment of the Palestinians by the forces of Israel
as directed by Sharon and supported by Bush, AND a very
widespread and fast setting view against helping in the
US plans for a military invasion of Iraq, coupled with
an increasing anger at the new Pax Americana planetary
policies of Dubya's USA.

Meanwhile in Europe the Germans were fighting an
internal political election battle over Yes-No re
support for the planned US military invasion of Iraq.
The NO side won and Germany came down solidly against
any involvement in, or UN support for, the planned
US-Iraq war. Similarly France held out against the USA
and, although willing to support renewed UN site
investigations, refused to back the US demand for
stronger UN resolutions that would automatically lead
via a short fuse to a rapid UN supported war on Iraq.
Reportedly the vast majority of other European
populations are also dead set against this new US war.
Not only these peoples but also a very large percentage
of Britons are similarly dis-interested in this new
American game - with it's very real risk of devolution
into World War III.

Then within a few days we were presented with fresh Al
Jazeera TV announcements (a) that Osama bin Laden (aka
they seek him here - they seek him there - the elusive
pimpernel) was alive and well, and (2) a message -
reportedly from another Al Qaeda Chief - threatening
terrorist attacks against both French and German
interests. These news items were immediately followed
by a terrorist attack - an explosive laden motor boat
against a French Super-Tanker off the coast of Yemen.

Back in OZ we simultaneously experienced nation wide TV
warnings by one Rohan Gunaratna, the author of "Inside
Al Qaeda". This previously unknown to us "expert on
terrorism" issued a specific warning that Al Qaeda
members have been trained to destroy targets in
Australia, stating that he'd been given the information
during debriefings of captured Al Qaeda members.
Amazing how this author got access to these prisoners -
the most tightly held since the Gulag Archipelago - and
national TV airtime across OZ - he must have some very
interesting connections ..................

Then last night there occurred the horrendous and
despicable terrorist bombings of two night clubs in
Bali - frequented predominantly by holidaying
Australians. First reports talk of +182 dead (with the
count expected to climb) plus hundreds wounded
including many horribly burned. These casualties
include many young Australian, English, German, Dutch,
and Indonesian-Balinese.

Just what sort of "Muslim Terrorist" threatens to bomb
the persons and interests of people who are basically
for Human Rights in Palestine and against the US Dubya
Bush plans for an invasion of Iraq ??? What sort of
IDIOT would then do so and thereby ruin this genuine
grass roots support for their cause within Germany,
France, Britain, Holland etc, and Australia ???

Strangely unlike the Northern Irish or Basque terrorist
actions these latest bombings of people and assets have
NOT been followed by any public claims of authorship
and their cause.

However this omission has been corrected by our
Australian TV which has been running pictures of Saddam
Hussein and linking the blasts to Al Qaeda or off-shoot
SE Asian Muslim organisations - throughout tonight's
Bali Bombing News slots.

We are told tonight by our new ABC "terrorist guru" -
Rohan Gunaratna - that "ONLY Al Qaeda have the
intention and ability to carryout such terrorist
bombings as that in Bali".......................

I seem to recall an almost identical line being spun on
US TV - just minutes after the 9-11 New York Twin Trade
Tower incidents ..................... ONLY AL QAEDA can
do this - NO ONE else - do not forget this viewers !!!

Obviously the Al Qaeda group lack quality spin doctors
and planners amongst their other key personnel - the
ones with the "sole planetary ability to mount such
terrorist attacks" - since better strategic planning
would presumably strike real enemies of the Muslim or
Iraqi world - not their potential or real allies.

Equally obviously such claims that Al Qaeda are the
ONLY possible sources of such terrorism are TOTAL
bullshit. There exist many state run and possibly other
independent organisations with the ability to mount
such terrorist attacks. Even OZ's very own ASIO (a sort
of low budget CIA) managed to place a little bomb
outside a Sydney hotel a few decades ago - where
Commonwealth Prime Ministers were meeting - they even
blamed a religious sect (Ananda Marga) for the action
and death of a council worker - not to mention their
organising a series of wood chip factory bombings
across the land - all well researched after the event
as attempts at political interference to re-elect the
Liberal Party to power. Not that I suspect our little
ASIO of being the source all of this recent rather
oddly targeted international terror.

Perhaps there is ANOTHER Third Party Agency at work
here ??? One that wants a war between the Muslim and
Western Worlds. One that wants to push the peoples of
France, Germany, Holland, Britain, and Australia into
the US led "Clash of Civilisations" and against Iraq
and the Muslim world ??? One that wants to create a
major World War ???  I wonder just who this could be
??? As in solving all crimes one must follow the motive
and benefit line to its logical conclusion.

As events begin to spiral along out of control on the
road to a major war between Western and Muslim
civilisation it behooves us to get it 100% right and
identify the true "Terror of Mankind" who is running
these inhumane actions - BEFORE we jump into aiding and
abetting planetary mayhem by joining the Dubya "Rape,
Loot, and Pillage Mission."

The powers of darkness are unleashing the dogs of war
and we might just have time to put them back in their
kennel - but time is running very short mates.

To: pbpost@pb_post.com

Hi Mike,

The Bomb attacks in Bali have all the hallmarks of a
terrorist attack by none other than AMERICA!

Why on earth is the CIA and FBI going to Bali to
investigate? Why are the British intelligence services
going there?

Could it be that they want to get there first to cover
up the truth and then may be they will 'discover' a
passport belonging to one of the 'bombers' who will n o
doubt be a Muslim and of course, he or they will be so
stupid and leave such blatant clues which will defy
logic.

Would you Believe it!!! A day after the attacks,
Al-Jazeera, who's credibility has now been in serious
doubt by most of the Arab world, who regard as a
Zionist propoganda outlet, release a 'message' from
Osama Bin Laden allegedly 'hailing' these attacks....
now think of the irony.

American and British 'Intelligence' services should be
kept out of Bali at all cost and the matter should be
investigated by an independent panel set up by the UN
and the findings made public.

If the 'dossier on Iraq' by Blair is anything to go by
then an American and British led investigation will in
fact be an insult to our intelligence.

For more information, check out these news stories,
which are already claiming that the US is behind the
bombings.

Indonesian Muslim militants claim U.S. behind Bali
explosions

JAKARTA (Agencies): Two leaders of Muslim militant
groups on Monday accused the U.S. of being behind the
deadly Bali bomb blasts that killed at least 187 people
over the weekend.

However, no evidence was offered to support their
accusations.

"We deplore and condemn the masterminds, fund raisers
and whoever was involved in the bomb explosions in
Bali," said Habib Rizieq Shihab, leader of the Islam
Defenders Front (FPI), a Muslim militant group best
known for its frequent attacks on bars, and other
nightspots in Jakarta.


"The incident could be used as reason for the United
States and its allies to justify their accusations that
Indonesia is a terrorist network base," Shihab said as
quoted by DPA.

Two massive explosions ripped through packed discos on
Jl. Legian street in Kuta, a well-known entertainment
strip in Bali, shortly before midnight on Saturday,
killing at least 187 people and injuring another 300
others.

Meanwhile, Abu Bakar Ba'asyir, chairman of another
militant group the Indonesian Mujahidin Council (MMI),
also accused the U.S. of being behind the explosions in
Bali.

"The U.S. intelligence agency is behind the Bali
bombings in an attempt to justify their accusation that
Indonesia is a terrorist base," said Abu Bakar,
suspected to be the leader of Jema'ah Islamiyah (JI), a
group that allegedly plans to establish a pan-Islamic
state in Southeast Asia.


Dozens of JI members have been arrested in Singapore
and Malaysia, where the group has been accused of
having links with the al-Qaeda international terrorist
organization headed by Osama bin Laden.

Indonesia, which abolished its draconian internal
security act in 1998, has refused to arrest Ba'asyir on
the grounds that there is no evidence that he has
committed crimes in Indonesia.

Abu Bakar warned the Indonesian government and security
officials not to be trapped in the U.S.'s strategy, and
to refrain from declaring that a terrorist network
exists in the country.

More than 85 per cent of Indonesia's 215 million people
are Muslims, making it the world's most populous
Islamic nation and making crackdowns on Muslim radicals
a very political issue for the government.

The government of President Megawati Soekarnoputri has
been widely criticized for failing to crack down on
terrorist suspects in the aftermath of the Sept. 11
terrorist attacks in the U.S.

Many Indonesian Muslim clerics and academics on Monday
were raising questions about who could be behind the
Bali tragedy, which has seemingly justified a stronger
government stance against terrorists and their
sympathizers.

"Such a car bomb blast could be linked to the work of
foreigners, especially the U.S. in a bid to attack
hard-line groups deemed as terrorists," said M.
Budyatna, a noted political observer and former dean of
social and political studies at the University of
Indonesia.

"The terrorist label is intentionally given to Muslims
in Indonesia in a bid to justify its hypothesis and in
the hope of stigmatizing Indonesia in the eyes of
international community," said another political expert
Nadjamuddin Muhammad Rasul.

But moderate Muslim cleric Hasjim Muzadi, chairman of
the Indonesia's largest Islamic organization, Nahdlatul
Ulama (NU), said that the blasts ran counter to Islamic
values, humanism and nationalism.

"The bloody blast is really inflicting sorrow on the
bereaved families and runs counter to the country's
unity and good relations with other nations in the
world," Antara quoted Muzadi as saying.
