PURPOSE

The purpose of this guest document is to illustrate how, many times, the legitimate U.S. government acts illogically when it is to the best interests of the U.S. government in the shadows which, in turn, is manipulated by the World Masters.

Keep in mind that since the Iraqi events took place in 2003 - thirteen years ago - the entire Middle East has become a very unstable key part of the world, bordering in unofficial anarchy. And, as if that were not enough, the terrorism that we allegedly went into Iraq to bring to an end has spiraled, literally, out of control with no end in sight.

For those who are not familiar with our writings:

(a) The might of the U.S. State and of its people is the last stumbling block in the plans of the World Masters for a one world government (1) and its one world religion. Therefore, the function of the the U.S. government in the shadows is precisely to bring down the U.S. and get it out of the way of their plans for complete globalization.

(b) Whether the reader believes what we publish or not is of no concern to us. Our objective is to shine a light, as best as we can, on the dark corners of history in the making so that those who have Eyes to See will see, and Ears to Hear will hear. The rest are destined to remain in the dark with the associated consequences thus, of no concern to us.


DETAILS

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Former U.N. arms inspector Richard Butler said Tuesday that Washington was promoting "shocking double standards" in considering taking unilateral military action to rid Iraq of its weapons of mass destruction.

Butler, who led U.N. inspection teams in Iraq until Baghdad kicked them out in 1998, said Iraqi President Saddam Hussein undoubtedly possessed weapons of mass destruction, and was trying to "cheat" his way again out of the latest U.N. demand to disarm.

But a U.S. attack, without United Nations backing, and without any effort to curb the possession of weapons of mass destruction globally, would be a contravention of international law and sharpen the divide between Arabs and the West.

"The spectacle of the United States, armed with its weapons of mass destruction, acting without Security Council authority to invade a country in the heartland of Arabia and, if necessary, use its weapons of mass destruction to win that battle, is something that will so deeply violate any notion of fairness in this world that I strongly suspect it could set loose forces that we would deeply live to regret," Butler said.

Butler's successor as the chief U.N. weapons inspector in Iraq, Hans Blix, reported Monday to the 15-member Security Council that Baghdad had only reluctantly complied with its latest demand to disarm.

Washington is pressing the United Nations to take firm action but says it is prepared to go it alone and has amassed a considerable military force in the region.

Butler, addressing a conservative Australian think-tank, The Sydney Institute, said the stated U.S. motive -- to rid Iraq of weapons of mass destruction -- lacked credibility because of Washington's failure to deal with others on the same terms.

Countries such as Syria are suspected of possessing chemical or biological warfare capabilities, he said.

U.S. allies Israel, Pakistan and India have nuclear arsenals but have not signed the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

The United States and other permanent Security Council members were themselves the possessors of the world's largest quantities of nuclear weapons, he said.

"Why are they permitting the persistence of such shocking double standards?" Butler said.

He said that, instead of beating the drums of war, the United States should propose an international mechanism -- similar to the Security Council -- to enforce the application of the three main conventions controlling the proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weaponry.

It should also take the lead by reducing its own stockpiles.

"I hope we don't have to await the train wreck before we decide to change history," Butler said.
