meios para atingir fins


washington post, 12 setembro 2006
"Last night, Democrats said Bush politicized the Sept. 11 anniversary. "The president should be ashamed of using a national day of mourning to commandeer the airwaves to give a speech that was designed not to unite the country and commemorate the fallen, but to seek support for a war in Iraq that he has admitted had 'nothing' to do with 9/11," said Sen Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.)".
os discursos de george w. bush são... sempre iguais. basta repetir centenas de vezes as palavras "terroristas", "bin laden", "saddam hussein" e "iraque". a pergunta que se pode colocar é: os americanos são assim tão estúpidos ao ponto de "comerem", com uma lágrima no olho, este discurso há já cinco anos? pelo menos já foram estúpidos o suficiente para o terem reeleito...
o discurso de bush, ontem, no aniversário dos ataques terroristas, voltou a provar que o homem está obcecado com o iraque, apesar de o próprio admitir, como refere a notícia transcrita acima, que esse país nada teve a ver com os atentados. então qual é o interesse? porque não atacar aqueles que estiveram por trás dos atentados? e bin laden? com tanta tecnologia de ponta à sua disposição, o país mais industrializado e poderoso do mundo não consegue encontrar uma simples pessoa? não consegue ou não quer?
atentem nesta notícia de novembro de 2001, dois meses após os atentados:

CIA AGENT ALLEGEDLY MET BIN LADEN IN JULY
From 'Le Figaro'
[1 November 2001] Translated by Tiphaine Dickson

Dubai, one of the seven emirates of the Federation of the United Arab Emirates, North-East of Abi-Dhabi. This city, population 350,000, was the backdrop of a secret meeting between Osama bin Laden and the local CIA agent in July. A partner of the administration of the American Hospital in Dubai claims that public enemy number one stayed at this hospital between the 4th and 14th of July. (...) The Saudi billionnaire was admitted to the well-respected urology department run by Teerry Callaway, gallstone and infertility specialist. Dr Callaway declined to respond to our questions despite several phone calls. (...) While he was hospitalised, bin Laden received visits from many members of his family as well as prominent Saudis and Emiratis. During the hospital stay, the local CIA agent, known to many in Dubai, was seen taking the main elevator of the hospital to go to bin Laden's hospital room. A few days later, the CIA man bragged to a few friends about having visited bin Laden. Authorised sources say that on July 15th, the day after bin Laden returned to Quetta, the CIA agent was called back to headquarters. (...) Contacts between the CIA and bin Laden began in 1979 when, as a representative of his family's business, bin Laden began recruiting volunteers for the Afghan resistance against the Red Army. FBI investigators examining the embassy bombing sites in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam discovered that evidence led to military explosives from the US Army, and that these explosives had been delivered threee years earlier to Afghan Arabs, the infamous international volunteer brigades involved side by side with bin Laden during the Afghan war against the Red Army. In the pursuit of its investigations, the FBI discovered "financing agreements" that the CIA had been developing with its "arab friends" for years. The Dubai meeting is then within the logic of "a certain American policy".

O brilhante documentário de Michael Moore (mais um), Farenheit 911, já expõe muito do que aqui revelas. O mundo não "cospe" assim tanto para o ar... No Reino Unido, Blair começa a enfrentar as consequências de se ter aliado e apoiado Bush.
Eu até acho que devíamos começar também a celebrar o 12 de Setembro: em memória de todos os que morrem diariamente no Iraque e no Afeganistão, desde soldados a cidadãos inocentes.
