A "rogue state" is threatening the world. It possesses weapons of mass destruction, and has used them.
It has attacked, bombed and invaded more countries than any other state.
The regime is run by a gang of ruthless killers. They are bent on world domination, and prepared to commit
mass murder to achieve it. The state is the US. Its leader is George W Bush.
THE US has the biggest military force the world has ever seen. George Bush's regime will next year spend
$396 billion on a war machine whose purpose is to kill and devastate anywhere and anyone who challenges US interests.
Next year's military budget is a $48 billion jump on what the US already spends on arms. It is more than
six times the military budget of Russia, the world's second biggest arms spender. It is more than four times what all the
European Union countries together spend on arms.
And it is more than 26 times the combined military spending of seven of the countries the US regime is
targeting-Iraq, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Sudan, Syria and Cuba.
It is 293 times that of Iraq, the country Bush claims is a threat. Bush now plans to expand his death
force even further, with a plan to hit an annual £451 billion in military spending by 2007.
In their words
"This is a period of enormous opportunity, a period akin to 1945-7, to create a new balance of power."
- CONDOLEEZZA RICE, Bush's national security adviser
"TheUS must maintain the mechanisms for deterring potential competitors from even aspiring to a larger
regional or global role."
- PAUL WOLFOWITZ, US deputy defence secretary
"When I was coming up we knew exactly who the 'they' were. It was us versus them, and it was clear
who the them were. Today we are not so sure who the they are, but we know they're there."
- GEORGE W BUSH - President of the USA
Long range plan
GEORGE BUSH says the US is waging war against "terrorism", and for "democracy". Its real aims are global
military and economic dominance. In 1998 a US government report, The Long Range Plan, argued: "The United States will remain
a global power and exert global leadership.
"The gap between have and have-not nations will widen creating regional unrest. The United States will
remain the only nation able to project power globally." It called for the US to build up "war fighting capabilities across
the full spectrum of conflict" to "protect US interests and investment".
Another report in September 2000, Strategies, Forces and Resources for a New Century, was written by key
members of Bush's gang. It talks of a "blueprint for maintaining global US pre-eminence". It calls for the US to "fight and
decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theatre wars".
A pariah state
THE US has refused to accept or has torn up international agreements which most of the world backs.
- George Bush refused to accept the Kyoto agreement to limit greenhouse gas emissions, which threaten environmental
- He has torn up the Anti Ballistic Missile Treaty-a move that threatens a new arms race with the US "Star
Wars" or National Missile Defence system.
- The US has "unsigned" the treaty setting up an International Criminal Court. It insists that its politicians
and troops should never be held to account for crimes they commit.
- It has blocked a treaty to ban biological weapons. The FBI admits weapons grade anthrax sent through
the post last year came from a US military lab.
- It unilaterally amended an agreement over getting rid of chemical weapons to give the US president a
veto over where international inspectors could go.
THE US has more weapons of mass destruction than anywhere else in the world, and has used them more often.
It has over 10,000 nuclear warheads in its arsenal.
Any one of these could destroy a city-annihilating hundreds of thousands of people in the process. The
US remains the only regime to have used these terrible weapons in war, dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in
1945, killing a quarter of a million people.
US defence policy now authorises the use of nuclear weapons against non-nuclear states. The US has built
and tested anthrax bombs. And it has built facilities in Nevada that could produce biological weapons.
The US used chemical weapons, Agents Orange, Blue and White, during the Vietnam War. Children in Vietnam
are still born with birth defects from their effects.
The US doctrine of Full Spectrum Dominance means that the US wants
a superior military power on sea, land air and in information. After the fall of the Soviet Union a new era of crude imperialism
reminiscent of the old British Empire is rising. The United States, liberty of which is claimed to be the greatest of their
virtues.. with their corrupt and constraining Patriot Act they have imprisoned their own people. Civil Liberties mean nothing
in post 9/11 America...libraries are monitored, phone calls are monitored, agents monitor students in universities, their
are black lists for those who speak ill of the Bush Regime and have strong ideas. If i should go on a FBI blacklist for FREEDOM
OF SPEECH, AND FREEDOM OF THOUGHT, then you can count me GUILTY!
The Daming Verdict:
"THROUGHOUT the world, on any given day, a man, woman or child is likely to
be displaced, tortured, killed or "disappeared" at the hands of governments or armed political groups. More often than not,
the United States shares the blame."
