Now we know that almost a third of the weapons given to the Iraqis are missing.

When the Bush admin and its Iran war drum beaters send out their routine messages blaming Iran for all the problems in Iraq, they usually include the accusation that Iran is supplying weapons.

Now, we really have to ask whether the truth is that the US is having its own weapons used against us.

It may not be that we're being fired on by our own weapons. When such huge quantities go missing, you have to assume they are being stolen by the truckload. It would be easy for insurgents to sell the US weapons to raise funds to pay for the kinds of weapons and materials THEY prefer.

They now report that rather than the 14,000 weapons at first reported missing, there are 190,000+ missing weapons. I tend to discount positive claims from this administration and multiply negative claims. So, when they admit to losing 190,000, I don't believe them. If they say 190,000, I figure the real number is closer to a half a million or even a million missing weapons-- enough to arm all the insurgents and terrorists, all the Hamas, Hezbollah, Fatah, Gemayah Islamiya rebels in Lebanon, Syria, Israel, Palestine, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Indonesia, as well as Iraq.

As Snuffy Smith, in the old Pogo cartoon used to say, "We have met the enemy, and he is Us." Then again, we've know that about the Bush administration. The problem is, how long will the lamestream, stenographic media continue to sell the BS propaganda that is ginning up a war with Iran.


Why aren't the lamestream media asking what the weapons are being used for?

Why aren't the lamestream media challenging the "It's Iran's fault" claims by Bush's sycophant propaganda-aiding generals?

Shame on them. Again.

 

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
