No matter how much the Tea Party House Republicans try to rebrand their party, the fact remains: They are still the party that is blocking funding to prevent domestic violence," said Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spokeswoman Emily Bittner. "No sales job can change the truth, that Tea Party House Republicans will relentlessly pursue their War on Women."

I am intrigued by the use of drones; would think you would be too.
You prefer ground troops and American deaths? Let the CIA and the military do it's job. We don't need to know everything.
There is a big difference between using drones for military operations in places where we are involved in such operations versus using drones for targeted assassinations of specific individuals, particularly American citizens who have not been convicted of any crime.

So, although one can be peased to see some of these individuals dead, the process raises serious questions about the power of one man to order the killing of other Americans. Perhaps future targets will be political opponents?

It is no surprise that this policy was established under President Carter with help from Kissinger and Brzezinski - all with ties to David Rockefeller. The Bush family, the Harriman family - the Wall Street business partners of Bush in financing Hitler - and the Rockefeller family are the elite of the American eugenics movement. Even Prince Philip of Britain, a member of the Bilderberg Group, is in favor of depopulation:

"If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels" (Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh, leader of the World Wildlife Fund, quoted in "Are You Ready for Our New Age Future?" Insiders Report, American Policy Center, December 1995).

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has been proposing, funding and building Bio-Weapons Level 3 and Level 4 labs at many places around the U.S. even on university campuses and in densely populated urban locations. In a Bio-Weapons Level 4 facility, a single bacteria or virus is lethal. Bio-Weapons Level 4 is the highest level legally allowed in the continental U.S.

For what purpose are these labs being developed, and who will make the decisions on where bio-weapons created in these facilities will be used and on whom? More than 20 world-class microbiologists have been murdered since 2002, mostly in the U.S. and the UK. Nearly all were working on development of ethnic-specific bio-weapons (see Smart Dust, Roboflies &).

Citizens around the U.S. are frantically filing lawsuits to stop these labs on campuses and in communities where they live. Despite the opposition of residents living near UC Davis, where a Bio-Weapons Level 4 lab was planned, it had the support of the towns mayor.

She suddenly reversed her position after a monkey escaped from a high security primate facility on the campus where the bio-weapons lab was proposed. Residents claimed that if UC Davis could not keep monkeys from escaping from their cages, they certainly could not guarantee that a single virus or bacteria would not escape from a test tube. The AWOL monkey killed the project (see Smart Dust, Roboflies&).

Population is a political problem. The extreme secrecy surrounding the takeover of nuclear weapons, NASA and the space program and the development of numerous bio-weapons labs is a threat to civil society, especially in the hands of the military and corporations.

The fascist application of all three of these programs can be used to achieve established U.S. government depopulation policy goals, which may eliminate 2 billion of the worlds existing population through war, famine, disease and any other methods necessary.

Two excellent examples of existing U.S. depopulation policy are, first, the long-term impact on the civilian population from Agent Orange in Vietnam, where the Rockefellers built oil refineries and aluminum plants during the Vietnam War. The second is the permanent contamination of the Middle East and Central Asia with depleted uranium, which, unfortunately, will destroy the genetic future of the populations living in those regions and will also have a global effect already reflected in increases in infant mortality reported in the U.S., Europe, and the UK.

Carter Administration set up today's US-Mid-East conflicts


In his 1980 State of the Union Address, President Jimmy Carter proclaimed,

An attempt by any outside force to gain control of the Persian Gulf region will be regarded as an assault on the vital interests of the United States of America, and such an assault will be repelled by any means necessary, including military force.1
Presidential Directive/NSC-63, signed by Zbigniew Brzezinski one year later, recalled that particular quotation, and set up a plan to protect those interests by,

-- building up our own capablities to project force into the region while maintaining a credible presence there;

-- developing a broad range of military and related response options in and outside the region against the Soviet Union, including U.S. force projection into the region, to compensate for the current Soviet regional advantage in conventional forces;

-- making the Soviet Union aware that it will also face a wide range of economic and diplomatic sanctions on a worldwide basis if it intervenes in the region;

-- assisting countries in the region: to deter and diminish internal and external threats to stability; and to contribute to deterring and resisting Soviet penetration -- political, economic, or military;

-- diminishing radical influences in the region and enhancing US security by working for progress toward a comprehensive Arab-Israeli peace settlement;

-- improving access to facilities in the region while remaining sensitive to the special historical experience of the region and not placing in jeopardy our relationships or the internal stability of the countries concerned by insisting on formal basing arrangements;

-- taking a regional approach to securing our economic and political interests rather than basing their defense wholly on drawing a line to protect specific countries in the region.2

"The Military Component" specifically calls for

A. U.S. Force Capabilities, including forces, lift, facilities access, overbuilding and prepositioning of supplies, exercises, and presence in the region.

B. Local Defence Capabilities, improved through security assistance, advisory programs and enhancement of local facilities and military capabilities in order to support U.S. force projection and local defense developed by joint planning, combined exercises, consultations, and other appropriate means...3

"The Foreign Policy Component" calls for peace in the Middle East "as rapidly as feasible," "improved security relations" with Turkey and Pakistan, "improved ties" with Somolia, Djibouti, and Ethiopia, and agreements with allies in Europe in Asia to provide points from which to support U.S. forces in the Middle East.

Among the "Economic Issues" is "to ensure availability of oil at reasonable prices and to reduce Western dependence on Gulf oil."

When the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, Zbigniew Brzezinski wrote in a memo to President Carter, "preliminary thoughts" on "What is to be done":

A. It is essential that Afghanistani resistance continues. This means more money as well as arms shipments to the rebels, and some technical advice;

B. To make the above possible we must both reassure Pakistan and encourage it to help the rebels. This will require a review of our policy toward Pakistan, more guarantees to it, more arms aid.

C. We should encourage the Chinese to help the rebels also.

D. We should concert with Islamic countries both a propaganda campaign and in a covert action campaign to help the rebels;

E. We should inform the Soviets that their actions are placing SALT in jeopardy and that will also influence the substance of the Brown visit to China, since the Chinese are doubtless going to be most concerned about implications for themselves of such Soviet assertiveness so close to their border. Unless we tell the Soviets will not take our "expressions of concern" very seriously, with the effect that our relations will suffer, without the Soviets ever having been confronted with the need to ask the question whether such local adventurism is worth the long-term damage to the U.S.-Soviet relationship;

F. Finally, we should consider taking Soviet actions in Afghanistan to the U.N. as a threat to peace.5

In a 1998 interview by Le Nouvel Observateur, Brzezinski was asked if "American intelligence services began to aid the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan 6 months before the Soviet intervention." He responded,

Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.

"We didn't push the Russians to intervene," he clarified, "but we knowingly increased the probability that they would." He said that the secret operation "had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap."

He was then asked, "And neither do you regret having supported the Islamic fundamentalism, having given arms and advice to future terrorists?" He responded,

What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?6

Brzezinski had encouraged President Carter to support the Taliban and Islamic extremism in Afghanistan. He continued to defend the move two decades later, calling it "Nonsense!" that "Islamic fundamentalism represents a world menace today."

Hyperbole. It only bothers you because it is a Democratic President; especially President Obama.
As mentioned many times; let the CIA and military do their job; we don't need to know everything. If we had drones in 1960, Castro wouldn't around now.
