Breivik the Neo-Con – Media disinformation goes up a gear

Breivik the Neo-Con – Media disinformation goes up a gear

Above is the URL for the video uploaded by the Norwegian Neo-Con mass-murderer Anders Behring Breivik shortly before his killing spree.

The clip has been hurriedly deleted by YouTube. [See attached screen shot taken on Monday 25th July 2011 at 12:25pm UK time.]

Jewish pressure undoubtedly achieved that deletion. Jewry does not want the generality of gentiles to know what the Jerusalem Post was ready to convey to its Israeli readership. That report, plus Breivik’s own writings before they were expunged from the web, make clear the following:

So far from being a “nationalist”, Breivik was a Neo-Con who advocated both support for Israel and murderous hostility to Muslims, not just in Europe but in Palestine and elsewhere. So far from being a “racist”, he explicitly opposes “multi-culturalism” not “multi-racialism”. He believed that Afro-Asians should be allowed to settle in Norway and elsewhere in Europe, just so long as they were not Muslims.

He also demanded positive support — not just a civilised toleration — for homosexuality. In addition to all of this, he was a keen Freemason. We can tell this because he posted a photo of himself, in full Masonic regalia, on his Facebook page. (The expression on his face in this and other photographs of himself, and the poses that he adopted, are all indications of his raging narcissism.)

This range of ideological ingredients do not feature in the manifesto of any authentic European / white nationalist movement, past or present.

Breivik’s Neo-Con views were explicit in his original Facebook entry but that, like his YouTube posting, has been hurriedly deleted. However, his Facebook entry was soon after replaced by another, different entry in his name, but in English!

All these frenzied efforts to hide what Breivik really was (including a decision by the Judge at his first hearing today to hold the session in secret without any press or public observers) has been matched by an equally frenzied campaign by the mainstream media — especially the BBC here in Britain — to depict Breivik as a “far right” .... “racist” .... “extreme nationalist” .... “neo-Nazi”, etc.

In tandem with that media misrepresentation is a campaign to suggest that further legal steps must be taken and new laws contrived to restrict free speech for those who argue against the imposition on European nations of a multi-racial society. The multi-racial society in Britain has no democratic legitimacy because it was never put to and approved by the electorate in any general election. We were never asked. When we protested, the Westminster traitors adopted the repressive Race Relations Act which has been drafted for them and circulated by the Board of Deputies of British Jews under the title: The Group Libel Bill.

The writings pro-Zionist, pro-Israel, pro-Jewish Breivik indicates that he was aware of the contradictory state of affairs whereby much of Jewry in the Diaspora actively campaign in favour of mass coloured immigration into European heartlands yet in Israel treat the indigenous Palestinian-Arab population with a barbaric form of genocidal ethnic-cleansing not dissimilar to the treatment of the North American ‘Red Indians’ during the 19th century.

Breivik was clearly driven insane by Neo-Con propaganda and sought to replicate the kind of race-hatred inspired massacre which have been perpetrated by his Israeli heroes against the Palestinians on a regular basis since before “Israel” was even proclaimed. The fact that he should select as his victims nearly 100 of his fellow Norwegians, most of whom were teenagers, is evidence enough to demolish media lies that he was a “nationalist”.

'Norway attack suspect had anti-Muslim, pro-Israel views'
1,500 page manifesto credited to Breivik, accused of killing spree, lays out
worldview including extreme screed of Islamophobia, far-right Zionism.
by Ben Hartman

Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian who killed nearly 100 people in a combined terror attack Friday that included car bombings in Oslo and a shooting rampage at an island summer camp, held fiercely anti-Islamic and pro-Israel views, according to a 1,500 page manifesto he uploaded before his killing spree Friday.

In the 1,500-page tome, which mentions Israel 359 times and “Jews” 324 times, Breivik lays out his worldview, which includes an extreme, bizarre and rambling screed of Islamophobia, far-right Zionism and venomous attacks on Marxism and multi-culturalism.

In one passage, he lashes out at the Western media, which he accuses of unfairly focusing on the wrongdoing of Jews.

“Western Journalists again and again systematically ignore serious Muslim attacks and rather focus on the Jews,” he wrote.

Breivik also took a jab at leftwing Jews.

“Jews that support multi-culturalism today are as much of a threat to Israel and Zionism as they are to us,” he continued.

“So let us fight together with Israel, with our Zionist brothers against all anti-Zionists, against all cultural Marxists/multiculturalists.”

He also stated that Israel is the homeland for Jews largely due to the persecution suffered by Jews at the hands of Muslims, saying “if one acknowledges that Islam has always oppressed the Jews, one accepts that Israel was a necessary refuge for the Jews fleeing not only the European, but also the Islamic variety of anti- Judaism.”

The manifesto also serves as a call-to-arms, of sorts, in which Breivik lays out his reasons for launching the attack, focusing on what he described as the importance of nationalism and the growing scourge of Islam in Europe.

Entitled “2083 - A European Declaration of Independence,” the document states: “as we all know, the root of Europe’s problems is the lack of cultural self-confidence [nationalism] ...

this irrational fear of nationalistic doctrines is preventing us from stopping our own national/ cultural suicide as the Islamic colonization is increasing annually ...You cannot defeat Islamization or halt/reverse the Islamic colonization of Western Europe without first removing the political doctrines manifested through multiculturalism/ cultural Marxism.”

Breivik did, however, note that he doesn’t hate Muslims in any fashion and that “I have had several Muslim friends over the years, some of which I still respect.”

He also expressed his sympathy for the people of Serbia, and blasted Norway’s support of the 1999 NATO-bombing campaign on Serbia that stopped the expulsion of Kosovar Albanians by Serbian forces.

In addition, he expressed his disgust at his government’s awarding of “the Nobel peace prize to an Islamic terrorist [Arafat] and appeasers of Islam.”

Breivik sneers at those who would spare the lives of women, and in an especially chilling instruction writes, “once you decide to strike, it is better to kill too many than not enough, or you risk reducing the desired ideological impact of the strike. Explain what you have done [in an announcement distributed prior to operation] and make certain that everyone understands that we, the free peoples of Europe, are going to strike again and again.”

Subject: Breivik a Neo-Con


Dr. Matthew Goodwin’s article “We can no longer ignore the threat from extreme Right-wing groups” (Daily Telegraph, Monday 25 July) was a concoction of allegations, not facts, which had evidently been cobbled together in a hurry.

The Norwegian alleged mass murderer Anders Breivik was not an “extreme Right-wing” character as that term is understood Britain. He is a species of exotic conservative known as a “Neo-Con”.

This was made plain in an article in yesterday’s Jerusalem Post ( ) which quotes him as saying: “Jews that support multi-culturalism today are as much of a threat to Israel and Zionism as they are to us .... So let us fight together with Israel, with our Zionist brothers, against all anti-Zionists, against all cultural Marxists / multiculturalists.”

Breivik posted his thoughts quite frequently on the web site “” ( ) which is run by Hans Rustad, who is Jewish. Rustad has published an extensive collection of Breivik’s posts. In one he attacks the Flemish nationalist party Vlaams Belang as being “racist” and “anti-gay”. In another he called the English Defence League — which has a Jewish Division complete with a rabbi — “an embarrassment” because it “lacks ideological training”.

Breivik was hostile to “multi-culturalism” but not to “multi-racialism”, which are quite distinct concepts. He did not oppose all non-European immigration into Norway and other European nations but only people who are Muslims.

In addition to all this, he was a keen Freemason. (The Telegraph’s photo of him in Masonic regalia cropped out his apron).

None of these ideological ingredients are included in the profile of authentic “far Right” (i.e. racial-nationalist) movements of the 20th and 21st centuries anywhere in Europe or north America.

Yours sincerely,

Martin Webster.

Horst Mahler’s “Bombshell” Nr. 2/05: War and War Aims

Horst Mahler’s “Bombshell” Nr. 2/05:
War and War Aims

Translated by J M Damon
The original is posted on several websites including

The increasing political repression in Germany, combined with that country’s insistence on human rights in China and elewhere, has renewed interest in the case of Horst Mahler.
Following is a translation of one of his revelatory articles called Splitterbomben (bombshells) that moved the “Federal Republic” to impose a prison sentence of 13 years on the 74 year old dissident attorney.

“BOMBSHELL” 002/05
On the War and War Aims

The forensic starting point for examining the actions taken by the victorious powers must be the war aims behind their military overthrow of the Reich.
Any accurate recognition of Allied war aims must include identification of Germany’s principal enemy -- the enemy who is in position and has the power to make its aims the same as the aims of the proxy powers that pull its chestnuts out of the fire.

The Zionist Bernard Lazare, who was active in Paris around the end of the 19th Century, made the following revealing observation:
“If profound disgust with and animosity toward the Jews had existed in only one particular country or at one particular time, it would be easy to determine its cause.
However, the Jewish race has always been an object of hatred in every country where they have lived.
Since enemies of the Jews have included the most varied races, living in distant parts of the world far removed from one another, with widely divergent legal systems, customs, manners and motivations, it is clear that the general causes of anti Semitism must have had their origins within Judaism itself, rather than among those hostile to Judaism.”

Every great Western thinker has made similar observations, although without understanding their true significance.
In 1793 the German philosopher Johann Gottlieb Fichte described the Jewish Problem quite clearly:
“A powerful, animosity-filled state within a state is spreading through nearly all the countries of Europe...
This state is constantly at war with all others, severely oppressing the general citizenry.
It is Judaism, the Judaic state.
The Jews must be granted human rights even though they deny them to others.
They are, after all, human beings; and the injustices that they commit do not give us the right to behave as they do.
In granting them the rights of citizens, however, I can see no alternative to cutting off all their heads and replacing them with heads that are purged of Jewish ideas...
In order to protect ourselves from them, I see no alternative to conquering their promised land and transporting them all to it.“

For Fichte, the danger did not lie merely in the fact that Jews form a state within the state.
The greatest danger lay in the fact that the Jewish state is founded on hatred of all other states.

Fichte criticized tolerance as drivel, calling it “sugar sweet words of tolerance, human rights and citizens’ rights.”
For him it was enough to “make the hair of one’s neck stand on end.

Did Fichte, the author of REDEN AN DIE DEUTSCHE NATION (Speeches to the German Nation), anticipate the fundamental cause of strife in the 20th Century, often called the Jewish Century?

Perhaps we should pay attention to what the leaders of world Jewry have openly stated to the world.
In the founding manifesto of the first Jewish world congress, which was directed toward world domination, the participants expressed themselves quite openly.
The Manifesto for the international congress of Jews, written by Isaac Adolphe Crémieux for the ALLIANCE ISRAÉLITE UNIVERSELLE in Paris in 1860, reads as follows:
“The Alliance that we want to form is neither French nor English, Swiss nor German.
It is Jewish and it is universal.
Other peoples and races are divided into nationalities; we alone have not just co-citizens, but co-religionists.
The Jew will never become the friend of Christian or Muslim until the light of the Jewish faith, the only rational religion, shall illuminate everyone.
Dispersed among peoples who are hostile to our rights and interests, we shall remain Jewish above all else.
Our nationality is the religion of our fathers and we recognize no other nationality.
We are living in foreign lands and cannot trouble ourselves with the mutable ambitions of countries that are alien to us, while our own moral and material problems are at risk.
Jewish teachings must be made known to the whole world.
Although you may be dispersed all over the world, Israelites! You must always remember that you belong to the chosen people!
Jewish teachings must some day rule the whole world.
If you realize that the faith of your fathers is your only patriotism; if you believe that, notwithstanding the nationalities that your have embraced, we are an indivisible people; if you believe that Judaism alone represents religious and political Truth -- if you are convinced of all these things, O you Israelites throughout the world, then come and heed our call to bear witness of your agreement!
Our work is great and sacred.
Catholicism, our ancient enemy, is lying in the dust, mortally wounded by a blow to the head.
Every day the net that Israel casts over the earth is widening and spreading daily, and the momentous prophecies of our holy books are at last being realized.
The day is coming soon when Jerusalem will be the house of prayer for the united peoples of the world, when the banner of Judaism’s one god will wave above the most distant shores.
Let us make use of every opportunity.
Our power is immense and we must learn to use it.
What do we have to fear?
The day is not far off when all the riches of the earth will belong to the children of Israel alone!”
[Footnote 6: from “Les protocols de Butmi,” p. 158]

On the occasion of Crémieux’s election to the presidency of the Alliance in 1861, an article containing the following programmatic exposition appeared in the ISRAELI ARCHIVES for 1861 (Issue 25, pages 514 – 520):
“A messianic movement for modern time must dawn and develop and grow, a Jerusalem of the New Order, a sacred movement arising between East and West.
It must take the place of the dual empires of kaisers and popes.
The Israeli Alliance has barely begun to assert itself and already its influence is noted in distant locations.
It is not limited to just our religious observances, it pertains to all.
Our religion will penetrate every religion as it has penetrated every country.
Nationalities will disappear and other religions will die out, but Israel will always exist because our little nation is chosen by God."

Even before Hitler came to power Bernard Lacache, the president of the Jewish Ligue Internationale Contre L'antisémitisme (International League Against Anti-Semitism), declared: “Germany is our main enemy and we intend to conduct merciless war against it.”
The League did not hesitate in carrying out its intent.
On 24 March 1933, the Jewish World Jewish Congress declared war on the Reich and called for a world boycott of German industries.
In conjunction with the boycott of German goods, they also imposed a highly effective financial boycott.
In response to the worldwide Jewish boycott, there were in April numerous calls for a boycott of Jewish businesses in the REICH, of which the world is still reminded 80 years later.
However the Reich government soon squelched these German calls for counter-boycott.

On the occasion of his return to the USA from the International Boycott on German Goods of August 1933 in Den Haag, Samuel Untermeyer called for a holy war on Germany.
He declared on Radio Station WABC that world Jewry was in fact already engaged in a “holy war for Mankind:”
“We must wage war relentlessly...
When our ship sailed past the proud Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, I gave a prayer of thanks that our beautiful Land of Freedom had so far eluded the curse that has descended on arrogant Germany, which has been transformed into a hell peopled by vicious wild beasts...
I have met many of these terrified refugees, and I want to tell them that what has penetrated Germany’s rigid censorship and false propaganda is only a part of the story of satanic torture, horror and persecution.
It is only part of the terrors, worse than death, in which these men, women and children live every day...
The Germans defy world opinion and they continue to defy and challenge it.
We Jews are the aristocrats of the world.
We are organizing world opinion to express itself in the only language that Germany understands.
It makes no difference whether you are Jew or non-Jew!
Whoever is not prepared to do his part in this holy war, whoever has not yet made up his mind, should do so right here, right now.”

Chaim Weizmann, who was president of the Jewish Agency (the Israeli shadow government) and later the first president of Israel, achieved a culmination of sorts with his speech to the World Zionist Conference in New York’s Biltmore Hotel on 9 May 1942:
"We are not denying and are not afraid to confess that this war is our war and that it is waged for the liberation of Jewry... Stronger than all fronts together is our front, that of Jewry. We are not only giving this war our financial support on which the entire war production is based, we are not only providing our full propaganda power which is the moral energy that keeps this war going. The guarantee of victory is predominantly based on weakening the enemy forces, on destroying them in their own country, within the resistance. And we are the Trojan horses in the enemy's fortress. Thousands of Jews living in Europe constitute the principal factor in the destruction of our enemy. There our front is a fact and it is the most priceless aid for victory."

Thus Chaim Weizmann corroborates the above quoted observation made by Fichte in 1793, in which he warned his contemporaries: “...The Jews, who are separate and distinct from you, are citizens of a state that is more powerful and secure than all your states...
If you grant them the rights of citizens in your states, they will trample your other citizens under foot.”

International law has still not taken cognizance of the International Jew so masterfully depicted by Henry Ford, or of the incessant war waged by ALLJUDA (international Jewry) against every nation on earth.
The strategic guidelines for the Jewish conquest of the world were set down in the late 19th Century in the PROTOCOLS OF THE ELDERS OF ZION, which some say is a falsification.

The protocol of the Seventh Assemblage is particularly noteworthy:
“We must bring about ferment, strife and enmity in every country of Europe, whose connections will soon spread it to all the world...
In case a state dares oppose us, we must be in a position to have a neighboring state declare war on the opposing state...
In case several neighboring states should also venture to collectively stand together against us, then we must incite universal war...
In case it should come to a general uprising of all the European nations against us, the guns of America, China or Japan shall respond in our name...”

How many jurists employed by the “Federal Republic of Germany” are familiar with the principal war aim on which the USA and Soviet Union agreed as the basis of their alliance against the REICH?
And how many jurists know who proposed this Allied war aim?

Wendell Willkie, Special Emissary for US President Franklin Roosevelt, wrote about his negotiations with Josef Stalin, who insisted that War Aim Number One should be the “abolition of racial exclusiveness.”
In his notations on the talks between Roosevelt and Stalin during the Teheran Conference in November and December 1943, we find the following entry:
“...The conversation then turned to the question of the intended treatment of Nazi Germany...
The President said that in his opinion, it was very important that the concept of the REICH not be allowed to remain in German consciousness, and that this word should be stricken from the German language.
Marshall Stalin replied that merely eliminating the word is not enough.
The REICH itself must be demolished so that it can never again plunge the world into war.
He said that the victors would be failing in their duty if they did not retain in their hands every strategic position necessary to squelch any renewed flareup of German militarism.”
In a memorandum to the Secretary of State dated 6 April 1945, Roosevelt reiterates his intention of eliminating the word “Reich” from the German vocabulary.

This is significant!
Here Roosevelt and Stalin are discussing measures not only for defeating the German armed forces, but for the utter annihilation of the Reich.
Such an annihilation could only be carried out against a defenseless nation, after the military defeat of its armed forces.
These are plans for a completely new way of conducting warfare.
These plans postulate unified governance by the combined global power of money and media, administered through the victorious nations.
This new power is indeed a METAPOWER surpassing all nations.
Fichte, we recall, had conceived of it as “a state that is more powerful and more firmly established than all the nations.”

In his examination of the Jewish problem, the automobile king Henry Ford calls this metapower “THE INTERNATIONAL JEW” and makes the following observations:
The Germans have given the appellation “ALLJUDA” to this Jewish state-within-states.
The mediums through which it exercises power are capitalism and the press, or money and propaganda.
Among the states, ALLJUDA alone has created a global economy; all the others exercise dominion over national economies only.

ALLJUDA’s principal venue for exercising power is actually journalism.
The technical, scientific and literary accomplishments of modern Judaism are exclusively journalistic in nature, built on the amazing Jewish ability to take over the ideas of others.
Capital and journalism merge in the press, which becomes the principal medium for Jewish domination
The administration of this all-Jewish state is amazingly organized.
Paris was originally its primary seat but has now fallen to third position.
Before the War (World War I) London was its primary and New York its secondary capital,
It remains to be seen whether New York will overtake London -- the tide is moving toward America.

Since ALLJUDA is not in a position to maintain standing land and naval forces, other states have to provide this service.
Its fleet is the British navy, which protects the global Jewish economy from all attack, insofar as it depends on sea transport.
In return, Alljuda guarantees Britain’s uncontested political and dominance.
Alljuda brought Palestine under the British sceptre.
Wherever there was an ALLJUDA land power, regardless of what uniform it might wear, it worked hand in hand with British sea power.
ALLJUDA is happy to leave administration of the various countries and continents to native governments; it demands nothing but control.
ALLJUDA has no objection whatsoever to a permanent division of the Jewish world into nations.
They themselves, the Jews, will never be absorbed in another nation.
They are a people separate and distinct -- they have always been so and will forever remain so.
The only time ALLJUDA comes into conflict with a client country is when that country makes it impossible for the Jews to bring its products and the finances under their influence.
ALLJUDA can make war and ALLJUDA can make peace; in extreme cases it can let anarchy loose and then re-impose order.

ALLJUDA directs mankind’s nerves and sinews in whatever way best advances its plans and interests.
Since ALLJUDA has world news under its command, it can always prepare the opinion of mankind for its next venture.
The greatest danger is perhaps the manner in which news is manufactured and the mood of entire peoples manipulated to serve a specific purpose.
But if someone uncovers the machinations of mighty ALLJUDA and points to its hand in the game, then we hear screams of “Incitement!” which is immediately echoed by the entire world press.
The real cause of persecution -- namely the repression of the world’s peoples by Jewish money schemes -- can never be made public.

ALLJUDA’S vice regents are found in London and New York.
After it finished exploiting Germany it went about bringing other nations under its yoke as well.
It already possessed Britain.
It is now attempting to yoke Russia, but its prospects there seem unfavorable.
On account of their limitless patience with all races, the United States offer a very promising field of endeavor.
The stage on which his plots play out may change, but the Jew remains unchanged through the centuries.

Another thing that never changes is the special relationship of the Jewish cult-community to its god, who announces in Chapter 34 of Isaiah:

34:1 Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.

34:2 For the indignation of the LORD is upon all heathen nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.

34:3 Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.

We must keep in mind the dimensions of this new kind of war, which overshadowed the entire 20th Century with its countless millions of fallen soldiers and even more murdered civilians.
We have to pay particular attention to the fact that we Germans, the principal victims, are depicted as perpetrators in this slaughter of nations.
We have been forced to open our treasury to the real perpetrators and endure the cultural and intellectual genocide that has been forced upon us.

The world is still struggling with the Jewish problem.
After all that has happened, who can doubt its extent?
The only thing that is new is that we are no longer allowed to discuss it.
Problems that cannot be discussed cannot be solved – at least not in a rational manner.
And serious problems that are not solved grow like malignant tumors that inevitably kill the effected organism.

A major part of our Jewish problem is that they consider themselves our rightful masters, which is clear from their appointed spokesmen.
Let us consider the teachings of Isaiah, who speaks to the people of Israel on this topic in the 60th Chapter of the Book of Isaiah (we can thank Luther for this insight):

60:10 And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee.

60:11 Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.

60:12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.

60:13 The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.

60:14 The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee; The city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

60:15 Whereas thou has been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.

60:16 Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

60:17 For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness.

So now we know what Yahweh has in store for us!
Laws that prohibit dealing with life-threatening problems cannot be just laws, because Justice is the commonwealth’s will to survive.
We can live free only under just and righteous laws since only they release our creative powers.
Whoever demands that a nation passively endure an invasive enemy, and makes it unlawful even to acknowledge the presence of this enemy, is himself an enemy of the people and must be driven from its midst.

Playtime over for the West

We're All Greeks Now
By Patrick J. Buchanan
Friday - July 15, 2011

Departing for New Hampshire in November 2010, Sen. Judd Gregg, the fiscal conservative President Obama wanted in his Cabinet, blurted an inconvenient truth: "This nation is on a course where if we don't do something about it, get ... fiscal policy (under control), we're Greece."

The remark was regarded as hyperbole. But Gregg had a point. For though Greece, measured by the size of her economy, is only 2 to 3 percent of the EU or the U.S. economy, she is a microcosm of the West.

Consider the demography.
According to the most recent revision of the U.N.'s "World Population Prospects," Greece in 2010 had 11.2 million people.
More than 24 percent were 60 or above, more than 18 percent 65 or older. Three percent were 80 or above. And, every year, for every nine Greeks who are born, 10 Greeks die.
Greece is slowly passing away.
Fast forward to 2050.
Greece's population will have fallen by 300,000 to 10.8 million. The median age will have risen by eight years to 49.5. Half the population will be 50 or older. More critically, the share of Greece's population 60 or older will be 37.4 percent, with 31.3 percent over 65. One in nine Greeks will be over 80.
If Athens is breaking under the weight of early retirement and pensions for seniors today, her situation will be horrendous by mid-century.
Where, in 2010, there were four Greeks under 60 for every Greek over 60, by 2050, there will only be 1.7 Greeks under 60 for every Greek over 60.
Conclusion: The retirement age must rise, and pension benefits fall, or Greece collapses.

What of the possibility of a new baby boom? Not likely, given that the fertility rate in Greece has been below replacement levels for three decades and is today only two-thirds of that needed to replace the present population. Indeed, by 2050, the fertility rate of Greek women will have been below zero population growth for 80 years. One wonders: How can the U.N. estimate that Greece's population will fall only 3 percent by then? Is the U.N. assuming mass immigration from the Muslim world?

But what does Greece have to do with the rest of Europe, or with us?
Only this. The median age of all of Europe is rising, and the demographic numbers for Greece look positively rosy alongside those of the east, where population declines in the tens of millions are projected for Russia and Ukraine. And outside Iceland and Albania, not one nation of Europe has a fertility rate sufficient to maintain its population. Those that are projected to grow, like Britain, have to be relying on Third World immigrants and their higher birth rate.

But while this may maintain an existing population size, immigrants from the Maghreb, Middle East, Caribbean, Latin America and South Asia, on average, lack the language, technical skills and educational levels of native-born Europeans.

The same is true in the U.S., where peoples of European descent are expected to drop to half the population by 2041. Hispanics will grow from 15 percent to near 30 percent of the U.S. population, and their absolute numbers from 50 million to 135 million by 2050. Yet, again, Hispanics and children of Hispanic immigrants have not, as of yet, reached close to parity in educational achievement with Americans of East Asian or European ancestry. People equate today's immigration with the immigration of 1890-1920. But another major difference is this: We erected a Great Society over 50 years that did not exist in 1920.

In Washington in the 1950s, a city of 800,000, half black and half white, food stamps had not been invented. Families fed themselves. Today, in a District of Columbia of 600,000, one in five are on food stamps. Nationally, a program that did not exist in 1964 feeds one in seven Americans, 44 million people, at a cost of $77 billion a year. And that is but a small fraction of our new Great Society.

We are entering a new "age of austerity," said British Prime Minister David Cameron in 2009.

The halcyon days are over. Government payrolls, as is happening from California to New York to Washington, D.C., will have to be slashed. Pension and health care benefits, not only for seniors, will have to be reduced. Retirement ages will have to be raised. From food stamps to foreign aid, programs are going to be capped and cut. The left believes it can get the money from the wealthy. But the top 1 percent of Americans in income already carry 40 percent of the federal income tax load, while the bottom 50 percent of wage-earners ride free. This, too, will have to end. We are either going to man up and radically reduce government at all levels in the United States, or the bond markets are going to do it for us, as they are doing it today for Greece, Ireland and Portugal.
We're all Greeks now.

Why war in Afghanistan?

Multi-Billion-Dollar Terrorists and the Disappearing Middle Class

James Petras

The US government (White House and Congress) spends $10 billion dollars a month, or $120 billion a year, to fight an estimated “50 -75 ‘Al Qaeda types’ in Afghanistan”, according to the CIA and quoted in the Financial Times of London (6/25 -26/11, p. 5). During the past 30 months of the Obama presidency, Washington has spent $300 billion dollars in Afghanistan, which adds up to $4 billion dollars for each alleged ‘Al Queda type’. If we multiply this by the two dozen or so sites and countries where the White House claims ‘Al Qaeda’ terrorists have been spotted, we begin to understand why the US budget deficit has grown astronomically to over $1.6 trillion for the current fiscal year.

During Obama’s Presidency, Social Security’s cost-of-living adjustment has been frozen, resulting in a net decrease of over 8 percent, which is exactly the amount spent chasing just 5 dozen ‘Al Qaeda terrorists’ in the mountains bordering Pakistan.

It is absurd to believe that the Pentagon and White House would spend $10 billion a month just to hunt down a handful of terrorists ensconced in the mountains of Afghanistan. So what is the war in Afghanistan about? The answer one most frequently reads and hears is that the war is really against the Taliban, a mass-based Islamic nationalist guerrilla movement with tens of thousands of activists. The Taliban, however, have never engaged in any terrorist act against the territorial United States or its overseas presence. The Taliban have always maintained their fight was for the expulsion of foreign forces occupying Afghanistan. Hence the Taliban is not part of any “international terrorist network”. If the US war in Afghanistan is not about defeating terrorism, then why the massive expenditure of funds and manpower for over a decade?

Several hypotheses come to mind:

The first is the geopolitics of Afghanistan: The US is actively establishing forward military bases, surrounding and bordering on China.

Secondly, US bases in Afghanistan serve as launching pads to foment “dissident separatist” armed ethnic conflicts and apply the tactics of ‘divide and conquer’ against Iran, China, Russia and Central Asian republics.

Thirdly, Washington’s launch of the Afghan war (2001) and the easy initial conquest encouraged the Pentagon to believe that a low cost, easy military victory was at hand, one that could enhance the image of the US as an invincible power, capable of imposing its rule anywhere in the world, unlike the disastrous experience of the USSR.

Fourthly, the early success of the Afghan war was seen as a prelude to the launching of a sequence of successful wars, first against Iraq and to be followed by Iran, Syria and beyond. These would serve the triple purpose of enhancing Israeli regional power, controlling strategic oil resources and enlarging the arc of US military bases from South and Central Asia, through the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean.

The strategic policies, formulated by the militarists and Zionists in the Bush and Obama Administrations, assumed that guns, money, force and bribes could build stable satellite states firmly within the orbit of the post-Soviet US empire. Afghanistan was seen as an easy first conquest the initial step to sequential wars. Each victory, it was assumed would undermine domestic and allied (European) opposition. The initial costs of imperial war, the Neo-Cons claimed, would be paid for by wealth extracted from the conquered countries, especially from the oil producing regions.

The rapid US defeat of the Taliban government confirmed the belief of the military strategists that “backward”, lightly armed Islamic peoples were no match up for the US powerhouse and its astute leaders.

Wrong Assumptions, Mistaken Strategies: The Trillion Dollar Disaster

Every assumption, formulated by these civilian strategists and their military counterparts, has been proven wrong. Al Qaeda was and is a marginal adversary; the real force capable of sustaining a prolonged peoples wars against an imperial occupier, inflicting heavy casualties, undermining any local puppet regime and accumulating mass support is the Taliban and related nationalist resistance movements. Israeli-influenced US think-tanks, experts and advisers who portrayed the Islamic adversaries as inept, ineffective and cowardly, totally misread the Afghan resistance. Blinded by ideological antipathy, these high-ranking advisers and White House/Pentagon civilian-office holders failed to recognize the tactical and strategic, political and military acumen of the top and middle-level Islamist nationalist leaders and their tremendous reserve of mass support in neighboring Pakistan and beyond.

The Obama White House, heavily dependent on Islamophobic pro-Israel experts, further isolated the US troops and alienated the Afghan population by tripling the number of troops, further establishing the credentials of the Taliban as the authentic alternative to a foreign occupation.

As for the neo-conservative pipe dreams of successful sequential wars, cooked up by the likes of Paul Wolfowitz, Feith, Abrams, Libby et al, to eliminate Israel’s adversaries and turn the Persian Gulf into a Hebrew lake, the prolonged wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan has, in fact, strengthened Iran’s regional influence, turned the entire Pakistani people against the US and strengthened mass movements against US clients throughout the Middle East.

Sequential imperial defeats have resulted in a massive hemorrhage of the US treasury, rather than the promised flood of oil wealth from tributary clients. According to a recent scholarly study, the military cost of the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan have exceeded $3.2 trillion dollars (“The Costs of War Since 2001”, Eisenhower Study Group, June 2011) and is growing at over ten billion a month. Meanwhile the Taliban “tightens (its) psychological grip” on Afghanistan (FT 6/30/2011, p. 8). According to the latest reports even the most guarded 5-star hotel in the center of Kabul, the Intercontinental, was vulnerable to a sustained assault and take over by militants, because “high security Afghan forces” are infiltrated and the Taliban operate everywhere, having established “shadow” governments in most cities, towns and villages (FT 6/30/11 p.8).

Imperial Decline, Empty Treasury and the Specter of a Smash-Up

The crumbling empire has depleted the US treasury. As the Congress and White House fight over raising the debt ceiling, the cost of war aggressively erodes any possibility of maintaining stable living standards for the American middle and working classes and heightens growing inequalities between the top 1% and the rest of the American people. Imperial wars are based on the pillage of the US treasury. The imperial state has, via extraordinary tax exemptions, concentrated wealth in the hands of the super-rich while the middle and working classes have been pushed downward, as only low paid jobs are available.

In 1974, the top 1% of US individuals accounted for 8% of total national income but as of 2008 they earned 18% of national income. And most of this 18% is concentrated in the hands of a tiny super-rich 1% of that 1%, or 0.01% of the American population, (FT 6/28/11, p. 4 and 6/30/11, p. 6). While the super-rich plunder the treasury and intensify the exploitation of labor, the number of middle income jobs is plunging: From 1993 to 2006, over 7% of middle income jobs disappeared (FT 6/30/11, p. 4). While inequalities may be rising throughout the world, the US now has the greatest inequalities among all the leading capitalist countries.

The burden of sustaining a declining empire, with its the monstrous growth in military spending, has fallen disproportionately on middle and working class taxpayers and wage earners. The military and financial elites’ pillage of the economy and treasury has set in motion a steep decline in living standards, income and job opportunities. Between 1970 -2009, while gross domestic product more than doubled, US median pay stagnated in real terms (FT 7/28/11, p. 4). If we factor in the added fixed costs of pensions, health and education, real income for wage and salaried workers, especially since the 1990’s, has been declining sharply.

Even greater blows are to come in the second half 2011: As the Obama White House expands its imperial interventions in Pakistan, Libya and Yemen, increasing military and police-state spending, Obama is set to reach budgetary agreements with the far right Republicans, which will savage government health care programs, like MEDICARE and MEDICAID, as well as Social Security, the national retirement program. Prolonged wars have pushed the budget to the breaking point, while the deficit undermines any capacity to revive the economy as it heads toward a ‘repeat recession’.

The entire political establishment is bizarrely oblivious to the fact that their multi-hundred- billion-dollar pursuit of an estimated 50-75 phantom Al Qaeda terrorists in Afghanistan has hastened the disappearance of middle income jobs in the US.

The entire political spectrum has turned decisively to the Right and the Far-Right. The debate between Democrats and Republicans is over whether to slash four trillion or more from the last remnants of our country’s social programs.

The Democrats and the Far-Right are united as they pursue multiple wars while currying favor and funds from upper 0.01% super-rich, financial and real estate moguls whose wealth has grown so dramatically during the crisis!


But there is a deep and quiet discomfort within the leading circles of the Obama regime: The “best and brightest” among his top officials are scampering to jump ship before the coming deluge: the Economic Guru Larry Summers, Rahm Emmanuel, Stuart Levey, Peter Orzag, Bob Gates, Tim Geithner and others, responsible for the disastrous wars, economic catastrophes, the gross concentration of wealth and the savaging of our living standards, have walked out or have announced their ‘retirement’, leaving it to the smiling con-men - President Obama and Vice-President ‘Joe’ Biden - and their ‘last and clueless loyalists’ to take the blame when the economy tanks and our social programs are wiped out. How else can we explain their less-than-courageous departures (to ‘spend more time with the family’) in the face of such a deepening crisis? The hasty retreat of these top officials is motivated by their desire to avoid political responsibility and to escape history’s indictment for their role in the impending economic debacle. They are eager to hide from a future judgment over which policy makers and leaders and what policies led to the destruction of the American middle and working classes with their good jobs, stable pensions, Social Security, decent health care and respected place in the world.
