Bush's 'Bomb Al Jazeera' Timebomb

Word on the street is that George Bush wanted to bomb Al Jazeera. In Qatar.

Word is that his comments were "humorous, not serious" which might be true, if only in some parallel dimension.

And, had one had a cursory glance at any government's publicly available major incident response documents, all of which discuss at great length the need to partition and disseminate incident-related information via carefully controlled media channels, one might see how taking out Al Jazeera would make perfect sense as part of any five year invasion plan of the Middle East.

Editors who report on the Al Jazeera memo have been threatened with jail, such is the true nature of the democratic society in which governments could once save themselves from being hoisted by their own petards until some years after it was too late to do anything about it.

Quoting Boris Johnson on the matter of the Al Jazeera memo:
The Attorney General's ban is ridiculous, untenable, and redolent of guilt. I do not like people to break the Official Secrets Act ... we now have allegations of such severity, against the US President and his motives, that we need to clear them up.

If someone passes me the document within the next few days I will be very happy to publish it in The Spectator, and risk a jail sentence. .. Sunlight is the best disinfectant. If we suppress the truth, we forget what we are fighting for

Then a mail arrived at 8:55pm Friday night offering The Antagonist yet another opportunity to go to gaol and meet Harry Roberts antagonise global super-terrorist Terrorist Tony B Liar, his cabinet of cronies and the underlying administration and establishment which has, with the full complicity, collusion and support of the equally mendacious U.S. administration and establishment, lied to and misled every human being on the planet with access to a television, radio, newspaper or Internet connection.

The Antagonist too will publish and be damned because information, like everyone and everything else, wants to be free.

The RULES of the GAME are CHANGING. Of which, more soon.


Obviously, bombing Al Jazeera is far more cost-effective than keeping Al Jazeera journalists in Guantanamo.

They say history repeats itself and that things always come in threes: "In 2001 the station's Kabul office was knocked out by two "smart" bombs. In 2003, al-Jazeera reporter Tareq Ayyoub was killed in a US missile strike on the station's Baghdad centre". [Source: The Mirror]

Watch the Channel 4 News Report on the Al Jazeera memo. Still more downloads of the report.

BlairWatch have the full list of those who signed up for a bit of global class antagonism along with a great summary of the Al Jazeera story.

Tony is not happy.

Thanks for stopping by, powersurge77.

John Hatch, author of 'Revolution' has offered to publish and be damned.

You are talking about Qatar. During the Iraq invasion. Qatar being a muslim nation who at great expense politically acted as the staging area and command centre for US forces in their attack on another muslim nation.

And you think only in a parrallel dimension is it possible that the suggested bombing of a target in the same country - which didn't happen - wasn't a serious plan.

You're either have no knowledge of affairs in the middle east or you are writing fiction.

The US bombing the BBC in Britain would have caused less problems for the invasion fool.
