Staying Alive

The biggest, and most tragic story of the opening of this century is undoubtedly 9/11 and the events which ensued, which now include over a million dead in Iraq. Without getting involved in conspiracy theories, anyone with any objectivity senses that there was something deeply suspicious going on before and after the tragedy occurred. Just one fact – that the only planes allowed to fly in the days following were carrying members of the Bin Laden family out of US territory – is so mind-bogglingly odd that that’s enough to suggest that ‘there was something rotten in the state’ for me.

Our local MP in Lewes, Norman Baker, recently published a book detailing his reasons why he believes that the weapons inspector David Kelly was assassinated. We listened to a talk by Norman Baker in Lewes, and I was impressed by the careful and sober nature of his assessment. As he piled reason on reason, his case looked more and more convincing.

It’s good to see that a senator has moved to impeach George Bush. And now the Bee Gees, or at least their most famous song, is giving voice to a movement in America to finally find out the truth about what happened in the opening year of our century:

  1. I have felt that from the day it happened. There are some very disgusting things going on behind the scenes that need to be uncovered – the scary thing is – could an already vulnerable world full of people cope with the truth? I guess the answer is we’ve all got to – we’ve got to put salt on the wound to rid it of infection! The trouble is – with every government consisting of mainly corrupt individuals – how can it happen? – the individual voices campaigning for the truth have got to be so loud – so brave (and have their facts totally right)… there’s no room for damaging conspiracy theories – its got to be hard facts!

  2. Without citing conspiracy theories or anything else, I agree that there is something deeply suspicious about the events of 9/11. I haven’t trusted George W Bush since he first took the presidency – an instinctive mistrust and not based on any actions or opinions. Sadly, in the last few years he has only confirmed that my instincts are accurate.
