From the NOV-DEC 2004 EARLY WARNING
often asked what Bush should have done after 9-11.
The Saudi royal family are the most powerful gangsters in the Islamic
world. Bush should have said to them, give us everyone involved in the
attack, plus all the evidence. The ones our courts find guilty will be
In exchange, he should have said, we will reverse the foreign policy
begun in the 1940s. We will sever all political and military connections
throughout the Islamic world. We will become completely neutral, withdraw
all our troops, and cease our meddling in Islamic affairs.
We will never again offer money, weapons or military training to
killers such the Shah of Iran, the Saudi royal family, Hosni Mubarak in
Egypt, Boris Yeltsin in Russia, or Musharraf in Pakistan. We will go home
and leave you alone.
These are, incidentally, measures Washington should have taken decades
ago, even in the absence of a war, on grounds of ethics alone.
Would the Saudi royal thugs have declined the offer? Would they have
said to a billion Muslims, no deal, we want the US government to stay in
Maybe. But if they did, I think they'd all very quickly have been
hanging from lampposts.
Instead, Bush immediately chose war, and now tens of thousands have
been killed and wounded in a conflict that is not likely to end in our
War should always be the last resort, not the first. Odds are very
high that eventually each of us will know one or more young men or women
who will be horribly maimed or killed in this debacle.
However, the beauty of the plan Bush should have used from the
beginning is, it's still available. At any time, the President can deliver
that offer to the Saudi dictators.
If the offer does not work, he can always continue the war, so why not
give it a try? What's to lose?
"I do not
know with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be
fought with sticks and stones."

Terrorism: The Way
is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of
the foreign world... As avenues to foreign influence in innumerable ways,
such attachments are particularly alarming to the truly enlightened and
independent Patriot. How many opportunities do they afford to tamper with
domestic factions, to practise the arts of seduction, to mislead public
opinion, to influence or awe the Public Councils… Harmony, liberal
intercourse with all nations, are recommended by policy, humanity, and
interest. But even our commercial policy should hold an equal and impartial
hand; neither seeking nor granting exclusive favors or
preferences...constantly keeping in view, that it is folly in one nation to
look for disinterested favors from another; that it must pay with a portion
of its independence for whatever it may accept under that character; that,
by such acceptance, it may place itself in the condition of having given
equivalents for nominal favors, and yet of being reproached with ingratitude
for not giving more. There can be no greater error than to expect or
calculate upon real favors from nation to nation. It is an illusion, which
experience must cure, which a just pride ought to discard."
---George Washington’s Farewell Address, September 17, 1796
|"The United States goes not
abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is a well-wisher to the
freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only
of her own. If the United States took up all foreign affairs, it would
become entangled in all the wars of interest and intrigue, which assume
the colors and usurp the standard of freedom. She might become the
dictatress of the world. She would be no longer the ruler of her own
---President John Quincy Adams
"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

U.S. Army War College Study Blasts Iraq War
Bounding the Global War on Terrorism
Dr. Jeffrey Record, December 2003
The views expressed in this report are those of the author and do
not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of the
Department of the Army, the Department of Defense, or the U.S.
The author examines three features of the war on terrorism as
currently defined and conducted: (1) the administration's
postulation of the terrorist threat, (2) the scope and
feasibility of U.S. war aims, and (3) the war's political,
fiscal, and military sustainability. He believes that the war on
terrorism--as opposed to the campaign against al-Qaeda--lacks
strategic clarity, embraces unrealistic objectives, and may not
be sustainable over the long haul. He calls for downsizing the
scope of the war on terrorism to reflect concrete U.S. security
interests and the limits of American military power.

hundred and seven years ago, in 1898, the federal government began levying

Allegations Within the “Downing Street Memo” Must be Investigated

Funding for the UN: Don't mend it; end it
[December 3] The ongoing scandal over the Oil-for-Food program should
cause Americans to ask: Why is the government funding the United Nations
in the first place? No one should be surprised that the Oil-for-Food
program has been used to grease the palms of corrupt politicians, because
waste and fraud have long been rampant in the UN bureaucracy.
Read the press release
[October 19] In 2002, the state of Georgia gave $28,146,687 in grants to
counties and cities around the state, to be used for the preservation of
"green space." The assumption, of course, is that tax money must be used
for environmental preservation because people won't otherwise protect
their environment. But are such programs really necessary? To hear
bureaucrats and pro-big government environmentalist cheerleaders tell the
tale, you'd think Americans are willing to sacrifice the earth's future
for a few bucks. »
