Recently, I received a letter that I would like to share with my readers. The author of the letter will be kept confidential. My answer to his final question is: Yes, we will do all we can to bring an end to the situation in Taiwan. Thank you for your letter.

Dear President,

I hope this email finds you well, and I wish you success in your mission.

I herewith apply for assistance in a mission to help liberate a hardworking nation from ongoing threat.

The strategic help is required in the form of media and recruitment of local intelligence officers, both contra US policy, and contra Chinese policy, mainly targeting the UN. It is high time, that the UN is publicly displayed as incompetent in the Taiwan Conflict issue, and that Taiwan is also supported by independant political organizations. I observe that Taiwan is still under enormous pressure by the US and Chinese governments, the country not really being recognized as a republic.

Further, it is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE, that this INDEPENDANT country, cannot regain membership in the UN due to ongoing vetos from China who is a member of the Security Council. Upon inspection, we have to conclude, that the geographic location is more than the fire in the far east, with nations being weaponed to their teeth, and spending almost all of their Gross Domestic Income on weaponry, instead of working on medical standards, general hygene, education, infrastructure and child welfare. This money is therefore being wasted, and landing in the tills of mainly FOREIGN arms dealers for outdated or regulated defence systems, instead of supporting the people who are earning this money. To be honest, can this nation really protect itself with down-throttled weapons?

The whole fiasco is nothing more than money pushing and a lie, same game as always. The political situation is orchestrated by either arms manufacturers in cooperation with their governments who need to secure longterm sales, and governments who seek to profit on economic potential through military power in the region.

How’s about economic power through hard work for a fair alternative?

In other words, the US and China got to change their habits, they need international pressure.

I know this mission will cause you numerous problems.

Please let me know shortly, I wish you a great day!

In January, I read in The New York Sun an article by Benny Morris titled, “The Second Holocaust”, which revealed the very real threat by Iran to wipe Israel off the map by launching a full-scale nuclear attack against Israel. The intent to kill the 6 million Jews, as well as the collateral deaths to 3 million Palestinians because of overt anti-Semitism, horrified me. However, I believe the outcome of such a “final solution” may surprise Iran as well as the Muslim community who is rooting for such an event.

“The orders will go out, and the Shihab III and IV missiles will take off for Tel Aviv, Beersheba, Haifa, and Jerusalem, and probably some military sites, including Israel’s half-dozen air and alleged nuclear missile bases. Some of the Shihabs will be nuclear-tipped, perhaps even with multiple warheads. Others will be dupes, packed merely with biological or chemical agents, or old newspapers, to draw off or confuse Israel’s anti-missile batteries and Home Guard units.

With a country the size and shape of Israel, an elongated 8,000 square miles, probably four or five hits will suffice: no more Israel. A million or more Israelis, in the greater Tel Aviv, Haifa, and Jerusalem areas, will die immediately. Millions will be seriously irradiated. Israel has about 7 million inhabitants. No Iranian will see or touch an Israeli. It will be quite impersonal.

Some of the dead will inevitably be Arab, for 1.3 million of Israel’s citizens are Arab and another 3.5 million Arabs live in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. It is doubtful whether such a mass killing of fellow Muslims will trouble Mr. Ahmadinejad and the mullahs. The Iranians don’t especially like Arabs, especially Sunni Arabs, with whom they have intermittently warred for centuries. And they have an especial contempt for the Sunni Palestinians, who despite their initially outnumbering the Jews by more than 10 to 1, failed to prevent the Jews from establishing their state or taking over all of Palestine. Besides, the Iranian leadership sees the destruction of Israel as a supreme divine command, as a herald of the second coming, and the Muslims dispatched collaterally as so many martyrs in the noble cause. Anyway, the Palestinians, many of them dispersed around the globe, will survive as a people, as will the greater Arab nation. Surely, to be rid of the Jewish state, the Arabs should be willing to make some sacrifices. In the cosmic balance sheet, it will be worth the candle.

A question may nevertheless arise in the Iranian councils: What about Jerusalem? After all, the city is the third holiest after Mecca and Medina, containing the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Mosque of Omar. Ali Khamenei, the supreme spiritual leader, and Mr. Ahmadinejad most likely would reply that the city, like the land, by God’s grace, in 20 or 50 years’ time, will recover. And it will be restored to Islam and the Arabs.” Source: Benny Morris, “The Second Holocaust”

Sounds simple; four or five hits, end of problem. Hold on a second. Let us recall the shock and anger expressed by the global community after the terrorist strike on the United States of September 11, 2001. While there were millions of people who harbored anti-American sentiments before that event, after that day billions became outraged by the atrocious and cowardly exhibition of Islamic terrorism.

Did the terrorists cause the United States to crumble? Of course not. Did they succeed in diminishing the U.S. presence in the Middle East? Of course not. In fact, as we all know now, the U.S. is even more entrenched in the Middle East.

For a short time after 9/11, the world came together with one objective - to fight against Muslim terrorism at all costs. If Iran believes as Benny Morris stated, that the land will be “restored to Islam and the Arabs,” he would be sorely mistaken. The world will not just breathe a sigh of relief that the Israel/Palestinian conflict will be over. Nor will the world allow Israel to cease to exist after a show of extreme anti-Semitism. In fact, the exact opposite will happen.

To annihilate 6 million Jewish people would leave about 10 million more scattered around the world. Those 10 million, along with all of North and South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and parts of Africa, will quickly mobilize a nuclear site cleanup far different from the one that is currently underway in Chernobyl. In fact, I would not be surprised if the Israeli government has already developed a rapid cleanup strategy. Once the cleanup is completed, Jews and Christians around the world will move back into Israel and begin restoring cities and infrastructure to the State of Israel. Instead of a cessation of Israel, it will cause a global resolve to save and protect the new Israeli’s from any further harm.

Would the world also choose to strike back at Iran, give them a taste of their own medicine and set an example to anyone else who is thinking along the same lines? I do not know. What I do know is, a nuclear attack on Israel will not wipe it off the map, but will lock it in place.

While Islamic society in some Middle Eastern countries seem to be heading backwards, I do believe (at least I hope so) that the situation can be turned around. However, it will be up to the Muslims themselves (not their Mullah’s) to decide how they want to govern their lives.

It will be up to Muslims to stand up against the use of the Qur’an as a vehicle for subjugation and suppression of individual rights.

If it is being distorted for political gains, then get that message out. If it is not distorted and in fact, quite literal, then decide if those laws, which were established for a period 1500 years ago, are relevant in this time.

It will be up to Muslims to intercede when a Mullah calls his followers to arms over silliness such as cartoons and teddy bears.

It is not up to America, Great Britain or any other country to do it for you.

Wars can rage on for thousands of years…as we can see. Ultimately, it will be up to Muslims to make the choice to live freely, with peace and the willingness for cooperation and a deep desire for hard work.

Life truly can be better.

The past will always be hungry for a foothold in the present. Don’t let it eat you alive as it tries to obliterate the future.

Mind you, this is true for anyone of any religion or society. Whether it is the anarchy of the Congo, or the bombed out villages of Afghanistan, individual people themselves have to refuse to participate in activities that are contrary to progress.

It is up to only you, if you have the courage.

I know a lot of you are wondering how we at Global Nation Organization can support democracy, but rail against Islam. Simple: Islam is not a religion, but a totalitarian ideology masked as a religion. It is no different from Communism or Fascism. 

Tonight I spent most of the night looking over the American Congress For Truth website. I became intrigued by Brigitte Gabriel. Some where along the line I came across her video’s on YouTube. I realize it will take time for people to watch all seven of the videos recorded by The Heritage Foundation, but really…you must. Our freedoms are imperiled by Islamofascim, so please watch the videos. You can thank me later.

Every day, 10 new women and girls who have been raped show up at his hospital. Many have been so sadistically attacked from the inside out, butchered by bayonets and assaulted with chunks of wood, that their reproductive and digestive systems are beyond repair.

…the number of women abused and even killed by their husbands seemed to be going up and that brutality toward women had become “almost normal.”

…in one town, Shabunda, 70 percent of the women reported being sexually brutalized.

After reading the article below, of which I have selected three quotes above, my entire being tells me to kill the men who are raping all the girls and women in the Congo and across Africa. Just shoot them as you find them. No trial, no jury of their peers; just kill them on the spot.

It seems to me they have failed the ‘human’ fitness test. Savagery is neither animal nor human. It is some other life-form that has no place in society. To the boys and men who have reached this pathologic psychosis of murder and mayhem, life has no meaning. It is as if they are rabid dogs. Kill them because they will surely kill you or me. And for the survivors, round them up and immerse them in an education program that teaches boys and girls how to live with stress of being alive during hardship. A program that teaches respect for a life that is worth living for.

Brutality requires brutal measures.

Rape Epidemic Raises Trauma of Congo War


New York Times

BUKAVU, Congo — Denis Mukwege, a Congolese gynecologist, cannot bear to listen to the stories his patients tell him anymore.

Every day, 10 new women and girls who have been raped show up at his hospital. Many have been so sadistically attacked from the inside out, butchered by bayonets and assaulted with chunks of wood, that their reproductive and digestive systems are beyond repair.

“We don’t know why these rapes are happening, but one thing is clear,” said Dr. Mukwege, who works in South Kivu Province, the epicenter of Congo’s rape epidemic. “They are done to destroy women.”

Eastern Congo is going through another one of its convulsions of violence, and this time it seems that women are being systematically attacked on a scale never before seen here. According to the United Nations, 27,000 sexual assaults were reported in 2006 in South Kivu Province alone, and that may be just a fraction of the total number across the country.

“The sexual violence in Congo is the worst in the world,” said John Holmes, the United Nations under secretary general for humanitarian affairs. “The sheer numbers, the wholesale brutality, the culture of impunity — it’s appalling.”

The days of chaos in Congo were supposed to be over. Last year, this country of 66 million people held a historic election that cost $500 million and was intended to end Congo’s various wars and rebellions and its tradition of epically bad government.

But the elections have not unified the country or significantly strengthened the Congolese government’s hand to deal with renegade forces, many of them from outside the country. The justice system and the military still barely function, and United Nations officials say Congolese government troops are among the worst offenders when it comes to rape. Large swaths of the country, especially in the east, remain authority-free zones where civilians are at the mercy of heavily armed groups who have made warfare a livelihood and survive by raiding villages and abducting women for ransom.

According to victims, one of the newest groups to emerge is called the Rastas, a mysterious gang of dreadlocked fugitives who live deep in the forest, wear shiny tracksuits and Los Angeles Lakers jerseys and are notorious for burning babies, kidnapping women and literally chopping up anybody who gets in their way.

United Nations officials said the so-called Rastas were once part of the Hutu militias who fled Rwanda after committing genocide there in 1994, but now it seems they have split off on their own and specialize in freelance cruelty.

Honorata Barinjibanwa, an 18-year-old woman with high cheekbones and downcast eyes, said she was kidnapped from a village that the Rastas raided in April and kept as a sex slave until August. Most of that time she was tied to a tree, and she still has rope marks ringing her delicate neck. The men would untie her for a few hours each day to gang-rape her, she said.

“I’m weak, I’m angry, and I don’t know how to restart my life,” she said from Panzi Hospital in Bukavu, where she was taken after her captors freed her.

She is also pregnant.

While rape has always been a weapon of war, researchers say they fear that Congo’s problem has metastasized into a wider social phenomenon.

“It’s gone beyond the conflict,” said Alexandra Bilak, who has studied various armed groups around Bukavu, on the shores of Lake Kivu. She said that the number of women abused and even killed by their husbands seemed to be going up and that brutality toward women had become “almost normal.”

Malteser International, a European aid organization that runs health clinics in eastern Congo, estimates that it will treat 8,000 sexual violence cases this year, compared with 6,338 last year. The organization said that in one town, Shabunda, 70 percent of the women reported being sexually brutalized.

At Panzi Hospital, where Dr. Mukwege performs as many as six rape-related surgeries a day, bed after bed is filled with women lying on their backs, staring at the ceiling, with colostomy bags hanging next to them because of all the internal damage.

“I still have pain and feel chills,” said Kasindi Wabulasa, a patient who was raped in February by five men. The men held an AK-47 rifle to her husband’s chest and made him watch, telling him that if he closed his eyes, they would shoot him. When they were finished, Ms. Wabulasa said, they shot him anyway.

In almost all the reported cases, the culprits are described as young men with guns, and in the deceptively beautiful hills here, there is no shortage of them: poorly paid and often mutinous government soldiers; homegrown militias called the Mai-Mai who slick themselves with oil before marching into battle; members of paramilitary groups originally from Uganda and Rwanda who have destabilized this area over the past 10 years in a quest for gold and all the other riches that can be extracted from Congo’s exploited soil.

The attacks go on despite the presence of the largest United Nations peacekeeping force in the world, with more than 17,000 troops.

Few seem to be spared. Dr. Mukwege said his oldest patient was 75, his youngest 3.

“Some of these girls whose insides have been destroyed are so young that they don’t understand what happened to them,” Dr. Mukwege said. “They ask me if they will ever be able to have children, and it’s hard to look into their eyes.”

No one — doctors, aid workers, Congolese and Western researchers — can explain exactly why this is happening.

“That is the question,” said André Bourque, a Canadian consultant who works with aid groups in eastern Congo. “Sexual violence in Congo reaches a level never reached anywhere else. It is even worse than in Rwanda during the genocide.”

Impunity may be a contributing factor, Mr. Bourque added, saying that very few of the culprits are punished.

Many Congolese aid workers denied that the problem was cultural and insisted that the widespread rapes were not the product of something ingrained in the way men treated women in Congolese society. “If that were the case, this would have showed up long ago,” said Wilhelmine Ntakebuka, who coordinates a sexual violence program in Bukavu.

Instead, she said, the epidemic of rapes seems to have started in the mid-1990s. That coincides with the waves of Hutu militiamen who escaped into Congo’s forests after exterminating 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus during Rwanda’s genocide 13 years ago.

Mr. Holmes said that while government troops might have raped thousands of women, the most vicious attacks had been carried out by Hutu militias.

“These are people who were involved with the genocide and have been psychologically destroyed by it,” he said.

Mr. Bourque called this phenomenon “reversed values” and said it could develop in heavily traumatized areas that had been steeped in conflict for many years, like eastern Congo.

This place, one of the greenest, hilliest and most scenic slices of central Africa, continues to reverberate from the aftershocks of the genocide next door. Take the recent fighting near Bukavu between the Congolese Army and Laurent Nkunda, a dissident general who commands a formidable rebel force. Mr. Nkunda is a Congolese Tutsi who has accused the Congolese Army of supporting Hutu militias, which the army denies. Mr. Nkunda says his rebel force is simply protecting Tutsi civilians from being victimized again.

But his men may be no better.

Willermine Mulihano said she was raped twice — first by Hutu militiamen two years ago and then by Nkunda soldiers in July. Two soldiers held her legs apart, while three others took turns violating her.

“When I think about what happened,” she said, “I feel anxious and brokenhearted.”

She is also lonely. Her husband divorced her after the first rape, saying she was diseased.

In some cases, the attacks are on civilians already caught in the cross-fire between warring groups. In one village near Bukavu where 27 women were raped and 18 civilians killed in May, the attackers left behind a note in broken Swahili telling the villagers that the violence would go on as long as government troops were in the area.

The United Nations peacekeepers here seem to be stepping up efforts to protect women.

Recently, they initiated what they call “night flashes,” in which three truckloads of peacekeepers drive into the bush and keep their headlights on all night as a signal to both civilians and armed groups that the peacekeepers are there. Sometimes, when morning comes, 3,000 villagers are curled up on the ground around them.

But the problem seems bigger than the resources currently devoted to it.

Panzi Hospital has 350 beds, and though a new ward is being built specifically for rape victims, the hospital sends women back to their villages before they have fully recovered because it needs space for the never-ending stream of new arrivals.

Dr. Mukwege, 52, said he remembered the days when Bukavu was known for its stunning lake views and nearby national parks, like Kahuzi-Biega.

“There used to be a lot of gorillas in there,” he said. “But now they’ve been replaced by much more savage beasts.”

The video shown below contains graphic images from aftermath of violence

Someone asked me today why I check my log files. The reason is: every day people come to this blog looking for gruesome war pictures. WELL HERE YOU GO — If you are not crying and shaking in your seat after watching this then you are seriously a sociopath.

This is what Islam does to its own children! This is what Islam wants to do to you! In Osama bin Laden’s recent video release he offered to suspend his wave of violence if everyone on the planet would just convert to Islam. That was a preemptive warning. Convert or be killed. Don’t convert, then according to Islam, he has the right to kill us all.

AND this is what death will look like. It isn’t terrorism; it is Muslim’s carrying out their sick desire for Islamic tyranny — IT IS ISLAM: THE DEATH MACHINE!

As we approach the sixth anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attack on the United States of America, I want to write very briefly about all the 9/11 conspiracy websites, blogs and protesters, that claim Muslim terrorists did not plan and execute the plane hijackings into the World Trade Center and Pentagon. What the conspiracy theorists want people to believe instead is that 9/11 was an inside job, created and carried out by the US government and even our president. I want to especially call attention to how groups like the various ‘truth’ movements claim 9/11 was created by our president as a pretext to war in Iraq. I am going to show you in one simple step how wrong you all are.

I won’t waste time debunking all the 9/11 myths, Popular Mechanics has done a terrific job proving none of you are engineers, but are fairly good disseminating propaganda. Anyway, I am digressing so let me get to it.

The US government, especially George Bush and Dick Cheney, did not conspire to fly two commercial airliners into the World Trade Center, a third into the Pentagon and fourth one that failed to crash at its intended target, flying instead into an empty field in Pennsylvania. The reason I can say this so conclusively, even without reading a single debunk article (even though I have read them) is this: How can the US so perfectly pull off a job like 9/11 yet fail to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?

If 9/11 were a pretext to a war in Iraq, then surely George Bush and company could have figured out a way to plant nuclear weapons around Iraq.

‘Nuff said!

The abstract below is a reprint of the above titled article by Mark Avrum Gubrud of the Center for Superconductivity Research. The full article can be read at the Foresight Nanotech Institute website.


Recent U.S. planning and policy documents foretell “how wars will be fought in the future,” and warn of new or re-emergent “global peer competitors” in the 2005-2025 time frame. It is generally appreciated that this period will be characterized by rapid progress in many areas of technology. However, assembler-based nanotechnology and artificial general intelligence have implications far beyond the Pentagon’s current vision of a “revolution in military affairs.”

Whereas the perfection of nuclear explosives established a strategic stalemate, advanced molecular manufacturing based on self-replicating systems, or any military production system fully automated by advanced artificial intelligence, would lead to instability in a confrontation between rough equals. Rivals would feel pressured to preempt, if possible, in initiating a full-scale military buildup, and certainly not to be caught behind. As the rearmament reached high levels, close contact between forces at sea and in space would give an advantage to the first to strike.

The greatest danger coincides with the emergence of these powerful technologies: A quickening succession of “revolutions” may spark a new arms race involving a number of potential competitors. Older systems, including nuclear weapons, would become vulnerable to novel forms of attack or neutralization. Rapidly evolving, untested, secret, and even “virtual” arsenals would undermine confidence in the ability to retaliate or resist aggression. Warning and decision times would shrink. Covert infiltration of intelligence and sabotage devices would blur the distinction between confrontation and war. Overt deployment of ultramodern weapons, perhaps on a massive scale, would alarm technological laggards. Actual and perceived power balances would shift dramatically and abruptly. Accompanied by economic upheaval, general uncertainty and disputes over the future of major resources and of humanity itself, such a runaway crisis would likely erupt into large-scale rearmament and warfare well before another technological plateau was reached.

International regimes combining arms control, verification and transparency, collective security and limited military capabilities, can be proposed in order to maintain stability. However, these would require unprecedented levels of cooperation and restraint, and would be prone to collapse if nations persist in challenging each other with threats of force.

If we believe that assemblers are feasible, perhaps the most important implication is this: Ultimately, we will need an integrated international security system. For the present, failure to consider alternatives to unilateral “peace through strength” puts us on a course toward the next world war.

The Kayan, a rice-growing warrior tribe from Borneo Island’s interior, have an ambivalent historical relationship with Chinese immigrants and traders who settled on Borneo’s shores since a few hundreds of years.

The below little Kayan allegory should be a reminder to European and American politicians, who bask in the momentary glory of free trade agreements with China.

My message to these politicians, and quick-money-makers: you better watch out what you’re giving away! See the below story:
A Chinese man enters an inn and looks into another person’s
soup bowl.

“Oh. I see you eat soup,” the Chinese man says. “I would like to try your soup.” The polite person nods. The Chinese man first tastes, then finishes the soup.

“Oh. I see your soup has got meat in it,” the Chinese man says. “I would like to try your soup meat.” The polite person nods. The Chinese man first tastes, then finishes the meat.

“Oh. I see you have got bone in your soup,” the Chinese man says. “I would like to have a taste of your soup bone.” The polite person nods. The Chinese man first tastes, then finishes the last bone, too.

When I was a student of geology in Freiburg, Southern Germany, I once planned to visit a girl friend. She lived near Mons, in Southern Belgium, a few hundred miles away.  I looked at the map and decided to drive through North-Eastern France over night, an important shortcut so it seemed.

I had planned five hours of drive, but finally it took me more than eleven hours. The road I had chosen ran through areas with some familiar names – Sedan, Verdun, Douaumont, Lille - a road leading right along the western frontline of 1914-1918. In 1978, more than sixty years after WW I, it felt like a haunted, desolate area – empty villages, abandoned houses, hardly any lights on the street, and plenty of potholes on poorly paved roads.

And glancing outside, there were crosses everywhere. The entire landscape was nothing but a huge graveyard.
It told me that wars cast a long shadow – it took countries like Spain more than 140 years to recover from Napoleon’s Iberian wars, and Eastern France is still suffering from the consequences of WW I.

Memories about my weekend trip to Belgium came back to me, when I discovered an old binder with photographs. It belonged to my Grandpa Franz Kessler, who had been working as a railway engineer in pre-WW I Turkey, and then served as artillery observer on the “Western Front.”

Several times I opened and closed the book. Yesterday, though, I overcame my emotional weakness, and scanned the pictures – they are direct, gruesome but also very true. My Grandpa’ eye was relentless. He pictured corpses of fallen soldiers, exploded bunkers, graveyards and destroyed factories, but also amazingly normal scenes of playing children and a bath at the river. Several pictures also show the frontline on aerial pictures taken from either zeppelin or fixed-wing aircraft.

Have a look at my website: Matahari Sky

The thirty-five pictures are organized in a folder called “Western Front 1915-1916.” History is important, particularly if transmitted from one generation to the next – forming a unique, personal and often propaganda-free view into the past.

I never met my Grandpa. Bad luck finally caught up with him when a grenade struck the factory chimney from where he was spying the enemy and directing the organs of death onto the French and British frontlines. Severely wounded on his skull, he retired from the war in 1917. He later died from a brain tumor, in 1935.

After having seen many war reports on the news or even the “History Channel,” I’ve come to the conclusion that war isn’t quite often portrayed by the so-called “embedded journalists” as what it really is – a terrible, unforgiving, grim, bleak episode of murder, torture and death. Those who win the war are those who survive. Some survive even better than others - staying far away from the war, and filling their corrupt pockets with the money of blood. War isn’t Boyz Toyz, wars consist of suffering and death.

May these pictures help to educate the world, and help to avoid warfare as far as it may seem possible!
