Bush Admin's LAST LAW -- Iraq/Iran Reform Act

AFP: (ap) 9.Sept.2008 4:12 p.m. A new Congressional bill passed by the House and the Senate will challenge the Bush administration’s stranglehold on terrorism policy, a leading Congressman has said.

The Iraq/Iran Reform Act authorizes the president to spend whatever is deemed necessary to continue the occupation of the Middle East, but requires that Congress be consulted should the president or vice president decide another staged terror attack is needed to get the American people to support an attack on Iran.

“The American people should have a voice in when, where and how the next U.S. government-orchestrated terror attack against America will take place,” said Representative Peter Caligula. “The Iraq/Iran reform act will make sure the American people have a voice in the War on Terror.”

Many members of Congress are still upset that the Sept. 11 attacks were carried out by the current administration without first consulting with the House and the Senate. Caligula said such “false flag” attacks have secretly been a part of U.S. foreign policy for decades now, but that Congress has been repeatedly left out of the false flag decision-making process.

“The American people know better than government how, when and where they should be attacked,” he continued. “The people, through their elected representatives in Congress, should decide that part of the foreign policy, while the president should decide what group or country will be blamed and attacked.”

A survey conducted by the Congressional Research Office shows that most Americans feel that detonating a nuclear bomb in the Nevada desert would provide the best pretext for war with the next scapegoated country.

“A nuke in the desert would work best,” said Bush supporter Barry Nelson of Houston, Texas. “Vice President Cheney shouldn’t pick tall buildings this time — that’s become passé. A huge uranium firecracker lighting up a safe distance away from Las Vegas would piss people off, because Las Vegas is a popular tourist location with legal prostitution. We could say that Iranians accidentally set off the nuclear weapon they were going to attack us with. We could then bomb Iran without any Americans having been hurt.”

The bill will go to President Bush for signing next week, but it is unclear if he will read or sign the bill because he tends to ignore Congress.


The Bush administration has authorized the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to lead the summer attack on Iran with a secret decoy bombing raid against the capital city of Tehran.

Dubbed “Operation Parachute Piggies,” the secret attack is designed to distract Iran’s military forces while Iranian underground nuclear facilities are targeted with nuclear bunker buster bombs. Ten thousand pigs will be fitted with small parachutes and dropped by CIA cargo planes onto Tehran’s population. Pork is forbidden in Iran.

CIA planner Daniel P. Hammond, who is in charge of the secret operation, gave details of the secret plan at a secret press conference today.

“About an hour before the drop on Tehran, we will feed the pigs very spicy Iranian cuisine,” Hammond explained. “When the pigs hit the ground they will be unharmed, but will land with enough force to cause them to shit out copious amounts of diarrhea. We hope the Iranian people will understand that the pigs and diarrhea are a sign of our support for them in their fight against their oppressive government. The pigs symbolize Iran’s evil government, and the diarrhea represents the lies that the regime in power tells them every day. The goal of the operation is to win the hearts and minds of the Iranian people and inspire them to rise up against tyranny.”

Critics of the secret plan say the idea is too low-budget to succeed.

“There aren’t any high-tech weapons involved in this secret operation,” complained Jane’s Weekly Offense editor Bill Black, who reports on secret military plans. “There aren’t any secret smart weapons or cool-looking, shooty-type laser beams. This is obviously just another ineffective secret pork barrel project.”

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) animal rights organization complained about the secret operation’s lack of an exit strategy for the pigs who will be sacrificing for their country.

“It’s totally unacceptable that the pigs will secretly be left behind,” said outraged PETA spokeshuman Melanie Harwell. “Someone needs to save their bacon.”



Osama bin Laden will leave his Pakistan work studio for a much needed vacation next week, according to his U.S. handlers.

Bin Laden — who plays a terrorist in the U.S. theatrical production of “War on Terror” — put in for the vacation after spending seven years in Pakistan producing videos for his employer, the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

According to CIA rules, bin Laden is entitled to two weeks vacation every year, but has not taken one since the U.S. military-industrial complex carried out the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001.

The intelligence agencies of the U.S. and Pakistan fund bin Laden's movie studio cave.“We can neither confirm nor deny that Tim Osman requested vacation time last week,” said CIA Human Resources director Anne Goldsmith, referring to bin Laden by his longtime CIA codename. “There are national security concerns at play here. But I can tell you that all CIA employees and other human assets are entitled to vacation time.”

Bin Laden was originally employed in the 1980s by the CIA to help fight the Soviet Union’s occupation of Afghanistan. It was during this time that he was brought over to the United States for training under the codename Tim Osman. Osman has continued to work for the CIA since then, and is used to disrupt world peace so that the U.S. military-industrial complex can continue to get the kind of government funding it cannot get in peacetime.

Since 2001, Osman’s primary role has been to take responsibility for the Sept. 11 attacks and to hide in a specially-built movie studio cave in Pakistan, where he makes videos claiming responsibility for terrorism and calling for violence in countries the U.S. wants to occupy. He also directs the popular “This is your brain on drugs” anti-drug public service announcements that feature an egg cooking in a frying pan.

“The Bush administration asked the CIA to make Tim Osman use up his vacation time, which has been accruing for seven years now,” said a White House insider. “The last thing they want is to have to issue a paycheck to Osman for unused vacation time. That wouldn’t look right in the eyes of the American people. They might start to question why we’re over there in the Middle East.”

One of Osman’s vacation stops will be Israel, where he will see the “Dancing Israelis” stage show. The Dancing Israelis last toured the U.S. in 2001, where they performed in New Jersey during the Sept. 11 attacks.




IED --One of the first examples of coordinated large-scale use of IEDs was the Belarussian Rail War launched by Belarussian guerrillas against the Nazis during World War II. Both command-detonated and delayed-fuse IEDs were used to derail thousands of German trains during 1943–1944.

Dead US Soldiers. VERY young men who have no life to live, who were slaughtered on the altar of private wealth and capitalist system-security.

IEDs were used during the Vietnam War by the Viet Cong against land- and river-borne vehicles as well as personnel.[4] They were commonly constructed using materials from unexploded American ordnance.[5] Thirty-three percent of U.S. casualties in Vietnam and twenty-eight percent of deaths were officially attributed to mines; these figures include losses caused by both IEDs and commercially manufactured mines.[6]

The Grenade in a Can was a simple and effective booby trap. A hand grenade with the safety pin removed and safety lever compressed was placed into a container such as a tin can, with a length of string or tripwire attached to the grenade. The can was fixed in place and the string was stretched across a path or doorway opening and firmly tied down. Alternatively, the string could be attached to the moving portion of a door or gate. When the grenade was pulled out of the can by a person or vehicle placing tension on the string, the spring-loaded safety lever would release and the grenade would explode.

The rubber band grenade was another booby trap. To make this device, a Viet Cong guerrilla would wrap a strong rubber band around the spring-loaded safety lever of a hand grenade and remove the pin. The grenade was then hidden in a hut. American and South Vietnamese soldiers would burn huts regularly to prevent them from being inhabited again, or to expose foxholes and tunnel entrances, which were frequently concealed within these structures. When a hut with the booby trap was torched, the rubber band on the grenade would melt, releasing the safety lever and blowing up the hut. This would often wound the soldiers with burning bamboo and metal fragments. This booby trap was also used to destroy vehicles when the modified grenade was placed in the fuel tank. The rubber band would be eaten away by the chemical action of the fuel, releasing the safety lever and detonating the grenade.

Another variant was the Mason jar grenade. The safety pin of hand grenades would be pulled and the grenades would be placed in glass Ball Mason jars which would hold back the safety lever. The safety lever would release upon the shattering of the jar and the grenade would detonate. This particular variant was popular with chopper crews, who would use them as improvised anti-personnel cluster bombs during air raids. They were easy to dump out of the flight door over a target, and the thick Ball Mason glass was resistant to premature shattering.


The Misznay-Schardin effect, or platter effect, is a characteristic of the detonation of a broad sheet of explosive. The explosive blast expands directly away from (perpendicular to) the surface of an explosive. Unlike the blast from a rounded explosive charge, which expands in all directions, the blast produced by an explosive sheet expands primarily perpendicular to its plane, in both directions. If one side is backed by a heavy or fixed object, however, the majority of the blast (that is, most of the rapidly expanding gas and its kinetic energy) will be sent in the direction away from it.[1]

This effect was studied and experimented with by explosive experts Misznay, a Hungarian, and Dr. Hubert Schardin, a German, who initially sought to develop a more effective anti-tank mine for Nazi Germany. World War II ended before their design became usable, but they and others continued their work.[2]

The British AT2 mine and the American Claymore mine rely on this effect

Alfred Herrhausen (30 January 1930 - 30 November 1989) was a German banker and Chairman of Deutsche Bank. From 1971 onwards he was a member of the bank's board of directors.

Herrhausen fell victim to a sophisticated roadside bomb shortly after leaving his home in Bad Homburg on 30 November 1989. He was being chauffeured to work in his armoured Mercedes-Benz, with bodyguards in both a lead vehicle and another following behind. The bomb had been hidden in a saddle bag on a bicycle next to the road that the assassins knew Herrhausen would be traveling in his three-car convoy. In the bag was a 20 kg bomb that was detonated when Herrhausen's car interrupted a beam of infrared light as it passed the bicycle. The bomb and its triggering mechanism were quite sophisticated. The bomb targeted the most vulnerable area of Herrhausen's car—the door where he was sitting—and required split-second timing to overcome the car's special armour plating. The bomb utilized a Misznay-Schardin mechanism. A copper plate, placed between the explosive and the target, was deformed and projected by the force of the explosion. It is unlikely that this improvised explosive device had the precise engineering required to form the liner into a more effective slug or "carrot" shape (as in a shaped charge or an EFP)[citation needed] but in any case, the detonation resulted in a mass of copper being projected toward the car at a speed of nearly two kilometers per second, effectively penetrating the armoured Mercedes. Herrhausen's legs were severed and he bled to death.

No one has ever been charged with the murder. For a long time, the German federal prosecutor office listed Andrea Klump and Christoph Seidler of the Red Army Faction as the only suspects. The Federal Criminal Police Office (Germany) presented a chief witness Siegfried Nonne who later retracted his statements in which he claimed to have sheltered four terrorists in his home. His half-brother Hugo Föller (died 23 January 1992) furthermore declared that no other persons had been at the flat at the time. German Television on 1. July 1992 broadcast Nonne's explanations how he was coached and threatened by the Verfassungsschutz, the German internal intelligence agency, to become the main witness. In 2004 the federal prosecutor dropped the charges against the Red Army Faction; the investigation was to continue without naming a suspect.

Some months before his violent death, Herrhausen is reported to have advocated Third World debt cancellation and reorganisation of the world's financial system at the World Bank meeting in Washington, D.C. In his position as the chairman of one of the most powerful banks in the world, his insistence would have been influential.

The award-winning German documentary movie of 2001 Black Box Germany retells the lives and deaths of Alfred Herrhausen and Wolfgang Grams, a radical activist (who was a major suspect in the attack on Herrhausen). [1]
