How many injured and ill soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines - like Chris Schneider - are left off the Pentagon's casualty count?
Would you believe 15,000? 60 Minutes asked the Department of Defense to grant us an interview. They declined. Instead, they sent a letter, which contains a figure not included in published casualty reports: "More than 15,000 troops with so-called 'non-battle' injuries and diseases have been evacuated from Iraq." Yet none of these are included in the media-reported casualty count, leaving the true human cost of the war something of a mystery.
"You have to say that the total number of casualties due to wounds, injury, disease would have to be somewhere in the ballpark of over 20, maybe 30,000," says Pike.

"MIAMI - (KRT) - Ten months after the fact, the Pentagon Tuesday disclosed the death of a Navy doctor at the Guantanamo Bay naval base in Cuba."
I guess he wouldn't go along with the torture...
The superdollar is the name given to an almost perfect forgery of an American banknote.
The superdollar is the name given to cover-up the first stages of hyper-inflation by the US by screaming "counterfeiters are behind it all".

"One of the wilder stories circulating about Sept 11, and one that has attracted something of a cult following amongst conspiracy buffs is that it was carried out by 19 fanatical Arab hijackers, masterminded by an evil genius named Osama bin Laden, with no apparent motivation other than that they "hate our freedoms."
Coincidence Theorists - Oh, Etienne... Those are all just coincidences...
Follow the money...

"'Dan Rather's face came on the screen, August 31/September 1, 1983, reporting that a passenger aircraft had been shot down by Soviet fighter planes over the Sea of Japan. And aboard was Congressman Lawrence Patton 'Larry' McDonald. What Mr.Rather didn't say, as no one dared say, for several days after the event...the damage control operation being, I assume, of incredible proportions...is that Larry McDonald was not only a 5-term U.S. Congressman, Democrat, from Georgia's 7th district, but that he was simultaneously Chairman of the John Birch Society and President of Western Goals Foundation. What Mr. Rather also did not say--never will say--is, that Dr. McDonald (he was a Board certified physician, an M.D., with flight surgeon experience aboard Airforce 2, the Vice President's craft) had announced that he would run for the Presidency of the United States in 1988, fact confirmed by McDonald's trusted advisor and former OSS agent Hilaire duBerrier and by officials at John Birch Society's headquarters and also via associates of Dr. McDonald, through his Western Goals Foundation."
Television is responsible for the deaths of 20,000 Germans a year, according to a professor of psychiatry.
Professor Manfred Spitzer, a neuroscientist at the University of Ulm, says he has found a direct correlation between watching excessive amounts of television and death caused by obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and diabetes...
...In a book published yesterday, Beware of the TV Screen, Prof Spitzer also quantifies the damage television inflicts on the mind. "Children who watch TV have narrow horizons," he said.
He told The Telegraph: "It reduces the plasticity of their brains which remain unstimulated and fail to develop properly...
The following pages present a reaction to the 'war on terror', Afghanistan and the occupation of Iraq. It charts a continuing personal journey to discover the truth as to why people, who on first glance seem perfectly rational, but commit genocide for both profit and control...They hold high class Degrees and Doctorates from 'esteemed' places of higher learning, and live, function and work within the 'upper echelons of society'. Yet when analysis draws the veil, they present a barbarity, which is sadly timeless.
A magnificent website chronicling the evil that controls us...

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Mounting evidence shows that the still-maturing teenage brain is particularly susceptible to damage from heavy drinking, according to a report published Monday.
A number of recent studies have shown that teenagers who abuse alcohol have problems with memory, learning and other brain functions compared with their peers, while animal research suggests such effects could last into adulthood.
Dov Zakheim resigned as Pentagon Comptroller and Chief Financial Officer at the beginning of March when it was revealed that the he is unable to account for the disappearance of a trillion dollars ($1,000,000,000,000). It is unlikely that this will receive much coverage in the mainstream media.
Two stories posted in the last week on the CNN website, one on nukes in Iran last Wednesday, and another on nukes in North Korea on Saturday, both use the same aerial photograph of the same purported nuclear power plant!
But one is supposed to be in Iran and the other is supposed to be in North Korea!
The bought and paid for mass media is starting to sell the lie that Iran has Nukes. 5 Bucks says the majority of the American people buy it.

"The north tower stood motionless and stable for nearly 1.75 hours. Now, suddenly, the tower starts to disintegrate from the top down. In a matter of seconds the entire building turned to dust. As with the south tower, all parts of the building turned to dust and pieces of steel before any of it hit the ground."
"Cracking a concrete block into two pieces requires energy, and pulverizing a concrete block into powder requires even more energy. The smaller the particles, the more energy needed.
The only energy available to pulverize the concrete in the WTC was the "potential energy" of the buildings due to the force of gravity. However, the photos show that no piece of concrete fell more than a few feet before turning into powder. This means the concrete picked up enough energy during the fall of a few feet to convert itself to a fine grain powder."
1. 80% of all votes in America are counted by only two companies: Diebold and ES&S.
3. The vice-president of Diebold and the president of ES&S are brothers.
4. The chairman and CEO of Diebold is a major Bush campaign organizer and donor who wrote in 2003 that he was "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year."
5. Republican Senator Chuck Hagel used to be chairman of ES&S. He became Senator based on votes counted by ES&S machines.
9. Diebold's new touch screen voting machines have no paper trail of any votes. In other words, there is no way to verify that the data coming out of the machine is the same as what was legitimately put in by voters.
12. Diebold employed 5 convicted felons as consultants and developers to help write the central compiler computer code that counted 50% of the votes in 30 states.
13. Jeff Dean was Senior Vice-President of General Election Systems when it was bought by Diebold. Even though he had been convicted of 23 counts of felony theft in the first degree, Jeff Dean was retained as a consultant by Diebold and was largely responsible for programming the optical scanning software now used in most of the United States.
14. Diebold consultant Jeff Dean was convicted of planting back doors in his software and using a "high degree of sophistication" to evade detection over a period of 2 years.

The Windsor Building in Madrid Burns to its Frame
Firefighters shot jets of water onto one of Madrid's tallest office buildings this morning, fighting to control a blaze that burned all night and threatened to bring down the 32-story skyscraper.
"We are battling Madrid's most important fire in its history," said mayor Alberto Ruiz-Gallardon speaking from the scene at about 9am (0800GMT).
After burning ALL NIGHT The Windsor Building in Madrid is still standing (albeit 6 stories shorter) but was able to withstand a much more intense blaze than WTC 1, 2 & 7 withstood without collapsing. Not only did The Windsor Building remain standing but it did not exhibit any of the other anomalies that WTC 1, 2, & 7 experienced (No eyewitness reports of bombs going off, no explosive ejection of shattered cement and structural steel, no cloud of pulverized cement dust 3X the size of the original building) and I'll bet you a dollar that the remnants of the Windsor building are not placed under guard, made unavailable to forensic inspection, and then carted away ASAP to be melted into scrap like its American cousins...
Compare this picture to the one above...
You don't need a Ph.D in Physics for this one...
Soooo.... Can any of you "Coincidence Theorists" explain: WHY AND HOW DID WORLD TRADE CENTER 7 COLLAPSE PERFECTLY AND SYMMETRICALLY INTO ITS OWN FOOTPRINT ???
Sixty Years Ago Today, British & American Bombers
Turned 'Florence On The Elbe' Into A Fireball
"The British Supreme Command knew that hundreds of thousands of refugees were in the city at the time, yet they still gave the order to devastate it," wrote Welt am Sonntag newspaper in a report headlined, "Suffocated, Burnt to a cinder, Dismembered," referring to the victims who succumbed to temperatures which reached 1,200 degrees.
Donald Nielsen, a US forces pilot wept: "I've asked God for forgiveness several times".
Another controversy surrounds the numbers who were killed on the night of Feb 13-14, 1945. The figure - estimated between 35,000 and 400,000 - has never been officially fixed, allowing extremists to manipulate it for their own means.
The following question will be a tough one for a generation raised by television and government schools and may require...horror...independent critical thinking:
What is the difference ethically and morally between American & British troops rounding up 35,000 - 400,000 civilian non-combatants from the non-militarily significant town of Dresden and marching them outside of town and murdering them in cold blood VS. setting the civillian non-combatants in the non-militarily significant town of Dresden ON FIRE from the air???

"The new media stood up recently when a fellow calling himself Jeff Gannon started popping up at White House press conferences. Gannon was often called on by Scott McClellan, or even Bush, especially when the press conference was not going well. Gannon would serve up the most biased, partisan, ridiculous questions imaginable. Bloggers and new media took notice and started digging. Turns out that Jeff Gannon was not a journalist, he was just playing one for the administration. He was representing a news agency that was also fake. Talon News, it turns out was just a front for an organization called GOPUSA. So, we have a fake journalist, working for a fake news agency, allowed into every White House press briefing for the apparent sole purpose of giving Bush or his representative a breather during press conferences. "
"We must consider the point at which we confuse 'volunteer to become an American soldier' with 'mercenary,' " Lt. Gen. James Helmly, the commander of the Army Reserve, wrote in a memo to senior Army leadership in December.
"The U.S. House of Representatives approved on Thursday a sweeping set of rules aimed at forcing states to issue all adults federally approved electronic ID cards, including driver's licenses."
Citizen...Papers Please... Its for your own good...really...and you don't have anything to hide...do you?
Reps Henry Waxman and Carolyn Maloney have called for hearings based on the new evidence of that the FTAA received 52 warnings mentioning Osama Bin Laden between April and September 10, 2001. Also, in the summer of 2001 the FAA sent a CD-ROM alert to airports mentioning the possibility of suicide hijackings.
Massive evidence of prior knowledge...Massive evidence of insider trading....Massive evidence that the buildings were brought down with explosives...Massive evidence that the air force stood down...etc. etc.
Parents of children with autism said this week's revelation that at least one pharmaceutical company knew of the high levels of mercury in vaccinations years before disclosing it further supports their suspicions that the poison causes neurodevelopmental disorders.
Many parents have long been suspicious of the effects of vaccines containing thimerosal, a compound used to guard against contamination and which is almost 50 percent ethyl mercury. Until recently, the neurotoxin was used in many pediatric vaccines; public health officials first acknowledged the high levels of mercury in those shots in 1999.
"The Government Accountability Office reported on Thursday that mock videos produced by the Bush administration 'constitute covert propaganda' and violate Federal law. The Bush administration violated the same law last May with Medicare 'news' segments targetting the elderly. The Accountability Office also found that federal agencies under the Bush administration distributed editorials and newspaper articles written by government officials without identifying them, which also constitutes 'covert propaganda' and violates Federal law.

Movement to resist taxes over U.S. wars abroad gains momentum

Thousands move to resist taxes as U.S. cements hold on Iraq
By John Byrne | RAW STORY Editor
As U.S. forces aggressively seek to pacify Iraq and Afghanistan, a growing number of Americans are quietly defying income taxes in protest...
Leading the charge is the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee, which seeks to raise awareness about the process of resisting taxes to protest U.S. military expenditure."
Just Say NO! (If you can't say No...You are a slave...)
"Forget the UN. The US occupation regime helped itself to $8.8 bn of mostly Iraqi money in just 14 months"
"...In just 14 months, $8.8bn went absent without leave. This is more than Mobutu Sese Seko managed to steal in 32 years of looting Zaire..."
Remember...It doesn't have to be "Pro-War" to be considered propaganda. A movie can even be considered "Anti-War" but...
Legitimize the cause, government, military leaders, etc.
Dehumanize the enemy
Obsure the real reasons behind the conflict (oil)
Condition soldiers to obey even if they "disagree" with the war
Make war about "brotherhood" instead of simply murder and death
etc. etc. etc.
Remember...The military doesn't loan you the Blackhawks unless they feel they are getting something in return...

WASHINGTON (AP) -- To boost funding for Homeland Security, the White House wants to hike the fees airline travelers pay by 120 percent: from $2.50 to $5.50 for each leg of a round-trip ticket.

"The Hearst-owned Popular Mechanics magazine takes aim at the 9/11 Truth Movement with a cover story in its March 2005 edition. Sandwiched between ads and features for monster trucks, Nascar paraphenelia, and off-road racing are twelve dense and brilliantly designed pages purporting to debunk the myths of 9/11."
Popular Mechanics is crushed by the Blogshpere!!!

We hereby declare that we shall not continue to fight this War of the Settlements. We shall not continue to fight beyond the 1967 borders in order to dominate, expel, starve and humiliate an entire people. We hereby declare that we shall continue serving in the Israel Defense Forces in any mission that serves Israel's defense. The missions of occupation and oppression do not serve this purpose - and we shall take no part in them
If it could only happen here...
For the first time in nearly a decade, the Marine Corps in January missed its monthly recruiting goal, in what military officials said was the latest troubling indicator of the Iraq war's effect on the armed services.
...The Marines missed their January goal of 3,270 recruits by 84, less than 3 percent. They last missed a monthly goal in July 1995, and 1995 was also the last full year in which the corps fell short of its annual recruiting quota, said Maj. Dave Griesmer, a spokesman for the Marine Corps Recruiting Command...
...In a reflection of the difficult market for Marine recruiters, the service is offering bonuses of up to $30,000 to retain combat veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan rather than relying on replenishing its ranks with troops from boot camp. About 75 percent of enlisted Marines leave the service after their first tour...
Good! Less dead kids!
