  1. Mike Whitney has a great perspective. The key point among many he makes, is that for Russia, with its recent accession to the top of the global energy supplier rankings, the last thing they would desire would be a military confrontation on their doorstep. Note the role of the Western media--partners in crime with the Bush Government. Mark, I agree that the Western Media can't be trusted. But I don't trust the opposite side either, having seen their propaganda machine (which is coming back to be fairly effective). I also am very wary of Brzizenski and his world view, because his theories
  2. Maggie, I disagree with this article almost entirely. South Ossetia and Abkhazia were already recognized internationally as part of Georgia, so keeping them as part of Georgia can't really be a Coup. The reporting of Georgia's attacks on South Ossetia; as far as I can tell, when Russia advanced into the region, Georgia likely was honoring a French sponsored cease fire. The reports of Georgian atrocities in the South Ossetia/Tskhinvali region are likely the product of Russian propaganda. At least the source of this information can be traced back to Russian websites (look at Bolshoyforum.org
  3. Dear, dear, touch tetchy tonight, Mikey. No one to censor over at Lancer? Two hacks for a neocon puppet and war criminal met on a forum. One said to the other... Hmm. Are you still in the UK public school system Paul? You're language seems so familiar.
  4. When the US government drops the liability in Georgia, I suppose. Won't be long, I suspect. What do you reckon, false flag assassination blamed on the Russkies? First of all, RE your response to Mike Wiliams', in the previous response, I was asking for your explanation as to your remark about not apologizing for War Criminals. Mike answered, but I was asking you. Secondly, I suppose you're referencing Litvinenko? Maybe Anna Politkovskaya, or any of the dozen journalists the FSB murdered for practicing dissention? Just how do you reckon the US is liable in Georgia? I admit if any warran
  5. OK, now that I've seen it, I think it's safe to say, the accusation of "video trickery" in the video feeds of the WTC 1 and 2 attack and collapse, is one of the more desperate and imaginative claims made. Which is saying something. The Verrazano Bridge is said to be about 2-1/2 miles away from the WTC (in the feed). The bridge is about two miles long (roughly). That means that pretty much any change in perspective in the video streams for 9/11 will provide a different view of the bridge. The youtube presentation tries to imply that the bridge is far enough away that these changes in perspect
  6. Haven't got to the end yet, but the out of synch visual and sound streams between ABC and CBS may be due to the digital delay in one or more of their satellite feeds or the difference in either digital delay or compression between the two signals being slightly out of adjustment. News steams that are digitally broadcast have built in digital delays to allow for signal multiplexing and compression, and then decoding and synching with other streams, like at an anchor desk in a different location. The digital delay should also require adjustment during a new broadcast, or an out of synch condito
  7. Simple - I don't do apologias for war criminals. Best to you, too, Mikey! Well that clears that up! Any chance of explaining?
  8. Oh yes, this is obviously the "Truth". The girl actually says, "I was running from Georgian Troops, not Russian Troops. I'd like to thank the Russian Troops...", her first and only point to straighten out any confusion as to who is doing what. No chance she was prepped for that. I doubt if the truth will be understood for at least a couple of weeks. Russia has used the art of crisis creation to justify military action too many times in the past, and they are way too good at it. There is also no possible way that Russia hadn't planned for the mobilization and invasion of Georgia in advance of
  9. You know Craig, I do not particularly care for some insinuations and accusations made about Len either, but you do realize that Len has never needed my help in defending himself? Mark's posts stand on their own, but that is a different thread.
  10. I also have strong opnions about that subject. The war on drugs is a self perpetuating enterprise and there is a hell of a lot of information to support that. The approach of the criminal justice system to illegal narcotics just hasn't worked and costs us a huge amount in taxes. That being said, the accusation of illegal use isn't even relevant, besides being insulting.

  12. After reading many of Len’s posts since I joined the forum, I feel Len’s a real guy, who makes mistakes (typos) pretty much consistently, and has been pretty consistent in his personality. I make mistakes myself typing, since I have poor typing skills, and see some of this quality in Len’s posts. A lot of what Len has posted I have sided with, not all, but a substantial portion. To be honest, I couldn’t take Len’s position in this forum because frankly, I don’t have the energy. Possibly, some may feel Len maintains a provocative stance due to his ability to maintain a fairly high energy le
  13. The aftermath & consequences of the Georgian war crime: http://bolshoyforum.org/forum/index.php?topic=18120.0 Calling the attack on Gori a “Georgian War Crime” is ridiculous. I didn't. Your point is ridiculous. Malign, quite possibly bonkers, but ridiculous. The South Ossetian capital and surrounding towns/villages weren't attacked by the Georgian war criminals, backed by NATO and the US? Really? Is this truly the best you could come up with? Paul TBILISI, Georgia (AP) – “The foreign minister of Russia said Thursday that Georgia could "forget about" getting back its two bre
  14. The aftermath & consequences of the Georgian war crime: http://bolshoyforum.org/forum/index.php?topic=18120.0 Calling the attack on Gori a “Georgian War Crime” is ridiculous. Obviously, all of the links identified in your hyperlink, providing references for the identification of atrocities, use the internet address-suffix “RU” which is of Russian origin. This information is blatant propaganda. Every news site I have seen reports that the bombardment and subsequent attacks on Gori are of Russian origin. Those atrocities were the responsibility of Moscow. NPR, as well as other independ
  15. Jack I responded to your query (yesterday 5:08 AM forum time) and opined that the circled items were brakes. http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.ph...100#entry150508 Pete I believe I responded to your posting. I did not know you consider yourself an UNTRUTHER. I always thought you were just a contrarian. Jack No response was made to my posting so I was feeling a bit left out. (especially considering The Areonautical guy also identified them as brake assemblies. What's the difference betwen contrariain and untruther? I'm not particular. and do not take a contrarian position
  16. Jack I responded to your query (yesterday 5:08 AM forum time) and opined that the circled items were brakes. http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.ph...100#entry150508 Pete Maybe I am not considered to be from of the ranks of "untruthers". I assure you that I do not subscribe to most of the 9/11 "truth" movement theories (although I do have reservations aboout the official positions as well). Does this qualify me as an "untruther"?

  18. How do you know it is metal? Could it be a flammable liquid? Could it be molten plastic or plexiglass or other office construction materials of a lower melting point than steel? If it is metal could it be a low melting point metal such as aluminum or some alloy used in making office furniture? I did not claim it is molten metal. In fact I do not think it is. Why are you misquoting me? Some people, including NIST, said it was molten metal....not me. Jack I took your statement implicitly. Apologies

  20. I am not familiar with the landing gear design (and these appear to be wheels from a landing gear), but the items within the red circles looks to me like brake assemblies (IMO). In one picture it apears that the brake element is withdrawn from the drum and in the other picture the end of the brake assembly (the drum) is visible (IMO). The strange looking metal tangs may be heat exchangers to allow air cooling over the brake drum end when the brakes are applied. It appears like two different wheels, maybe two halves of a wheel set. At least it appears that way, although there may some explanan
  21. Peter, Have you read the case submtted by Judy Wood et al? It was an appeal. The case really had no merit. Reading it, it seems to me that the plaintiffs did not even try to create a logical argument. I could reiterate the appeal and its claims and argue the court's decision point by point, but anyone should be able to read it and reach a smimilar conclusion. I am not sure of the reasoning behind the submission of the appeal. Possibly just to go on record as having appealed, but the arguments do not reiterate the sweeping claims of the 9/11 anti-official theory as you have summarized
  22. Quote "A piece of historical revisionism worthy of inclusion in a Soviet-era encyclopedia: Hussein was a creature of the CIA, and it was the US which both instigated his invasion of Iran and furnished him with the weaponry. Just another Langley mass murderer, in other words. " That Saddam committed atrocities against the Kurds is hardly historical revisionism Human Rights Watch estimates that Saddam's 1987-1988 campaign of terror against the Kurds killed at least 50,000 and possibly as many as 100,000 Kurds. The Iraqi regime used chemical agents to include mustard gas and nerve agents i
  23. http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,23936674-401,00.html This basically reveals the impotence of the UN and the UN security council. Zimbabwe is becoming another Mynamar, where a despotic regime can mismanage its country and futrher its own ends at the expense of its populace. Even more alarming is the influence exerted by South Africa, a Russian puppet, in rendering the UN seucirty council impotent. South Africa would seem like the last nation to allow such behavior. It seems guarenteed that the African Union will also refuse to censure Mugabe. South Africa is apparently under Russia'
  24. I thought this an important subject. Also, the subject of Myanmar and the criminal behavior of the Myanmar government, and the role of the UN and its "responsibility to protect" doctrine. While the West worries about its fuel supply, two thirds of the world has a problem finding its next meal and worry about whether their children can survive into adulthood. Is there a warped perspective in the world today with respect to its real problems?
  25. "Truthers" --- are most accurately defined, in the context of 9/11, as "People Who, in Informed, Intelligent, Courageous Manners, Take Legitimate Issue with the Official Government Conspiracy Theory of the Attacks on 9/11/01." Charles, While this is likely a description of the majority within this group, I have personally encountered some "truthers" whose tactics were not even good enough to be defined as 'Ill-mannered'. On one occasion, when I attempted to enter into a civil discussion with a few 'leaflet handlers' on a street corner, as soon as they determined that I was not going to fa
