A Look At Freedom's Currents
Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others. . .they send forth a ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." Robert F. Kennedy

Congressman Says Bush, Oil Executives, Criminally Liable For Iraq War,

Perpetual Freedumb Toward a Devastatingly Lethal Climax - or a Return to Freedom, Life, Liberty, Health, with Limitless, Unbounded Potential for all, in a world of exploding human population, with its myriad needs, wants and desires?

Science & Technology had the capacity to promise us the latter back in the late 1940's- Life, Liberty, Health, Unbounded Potential for all - with the revolutionary advanced definitions of Space, Time, Mass, Matter, Energy, Gravity (StarSteps) springing forth from an extended view of E=MC2 embracing the Radius of Curvature of All Natural Law.

The Deadly Dangers of a Mis-informed, Dis-informed & Un-informed Population, Ultimately to Itself, History Provides Ample Evidence.

The Solution: The Promise of New Energy Systems & Beyond Oil

Evaporates the Problem: The ill designed "Corporism: The Systemic Disease that Destroys Civilization." when lacking a Bill of Rights for Human Life

As common sense in science is lost with the continued stagnation of our energy base and deep troubling theoretical foundational issues in physics, so too, Civilization's Survival Parameters fly out of sight, out of mind, along with the values and morals inherent within new scientific understanding which new energy systems would reveal. Scientific Stagnation bodes an ill wind to evolution, sustainability, and survival as "cycles of humiliation, dumbing us down, violence, and Unrestrained Corporate Greed prompting resource wars with nuclear finality" join hands with global warming and ecological imbalance to precipitate the historical "rise and fall of civilization" - a Tsunami accelerating toward us with a far more spectacular event than the legends and myths of 'Atlantis and Lemuria"........ had more people known that Energy from Corn (or going backwards to a dimwitted concept of radioactive nuclear power application ) sounded a wee bit kindergartenish and senile for the twenty first century......the Future may have had a chance.

Bush, oil executives, criminally liable for Iraq War, says Congressman
Saturday 28th June, 2008
A U.S. Congressman, who ran for president this year, and in 2004, this week accused the Bush administration of colluding with the nation's oil companies in targeting Iraq's oil reserves.Surprisingly, the U.S. media has failed to report the allegations, notwithstanding they were aired in the House of Representatives on Thursday.Ohio Representative Dennis J. Kucinich, a Democrat, in a speech to the House on Thursday, tied the secret meetings of the Cheney Energy Task Force to the recent awarding of non-competitive oil contracts in Iraq, and said that both the Bush Administration and the oil company executives who participated in those meetings in 2001, should be held criminally liable for an illegal war and extortion of Iraq’s oil.“In March of 2001, when the Bush Administration began to have secret meetings with oil company executives from Exxon, Shell and BP, spreading maps of Iraq oil fields before them, the price of oil was $23.96 per barrel. Then there were 63 companies in 30 countries, other than the U.S., competing for oil contracts with Iraq,' said Kucinich.“Today the price of oil is $135.59 per barrel, the U.S. Army is occupying Iraq and the first Iraq oil contracts will go, without competitive bidding to, surprise, (among a very few others) Exxon, Shell and BP.'“Iraq has between 200 to 300 billion barrels of oil with a market value in the tens of trillions of dollars. And our government is trying to force Iraq not only to privatize its oil, but to accept a long-term U.S. military presence to guard the oil and protect the profits of the oil companies, while Americans pay between $4 and $5 a gallon for gas, and our troops continue dying,' said the Democratic lawmaker.“We attacked a nation that did not attack us. Over 4,000 of our troops are dead. Over 1,000,000 innocent Iraqis have perished. The war will cost U.S. taxpayers between $2 to $3 trillion dollars. Our nation’s soul is stained because we went to war for the oil companies and their profits,' he said. 'There must be accountability not only with this Administration for its secret meetings and its open illegal warfare, but also for the oil company executives who were willing participants in a criminal enterprise of illegal war, the deaths of our soldiers and innocent Iraqis, and the extortion of the national resources of Iraq.'“We have found the weapon of mass destruction in Iraq,' said Kucinich in his speech to the House of Representatives. 'It is oil. As long as the oil companies control our government Americans will continue to pay and pay, with our lives, our fortunes our sacred honor,” he concluded.The Democratic Congressman, who has yet to endorse Barack Obama for the presidential election, should also be in the news for his recent efforts to impeach President George W. Bush, however again the media is almost completely silent on the matter. Without U.S. media attention, international news networks too appear to be loathe to pick up on the story.Earlier this month Kucinich moved a motion to refer to committee Articles of Impeachment concerning the president. 'The sheer volume of the Articles required a referral to provide Members with an opportunity for review,' Kucinich said on June 11.'It is now imperative that the Judiciary Committee begin a review of the 35 Articles. I will be providing supporting documentation to the committee so that it can proceed in an orderly manner. The weight of evidence contained in the Articles makes it clear that President Bush violated the Constitution and the U.S. Code as well as International law.''It is the House's responsibility as a co-equal branch of government to provide an effective check and balance to executive abuse of power. President Bush was principally responsible for directing the United States Armed Forces to attack Iraq,' the Ohio lawmaker said. 'The June 5th Senate Intelligence report convinced me it was time to act.'In the report, the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Senator Jay Rockefeller, said: 'In making the case for war, the Administration repeatedly presented intelligence as fact when in reality it was unsubstantiated, contradicted, or even non-existent. As a result, the American people were led to believe that the threat from Iraq was much greater than actually existed.''I believe that there is sufficient evidence in the Articles to support the charge that President Bush allowed, authorized and sanctioned the manipulation of intelligence by those acting under his direction and control, misleading Congress to approve a resolution authorizing the use of force against Iraq,' said Kucinich. 'As a result over 4,000 United States soldiers have died in combat in Iraq, with tens of thousands injured, many of them permanently impaired. Over a million innocent Iraqis have perished in a war which was based on lies, a war which will cost the American taxpayers as much as three trillion dollars,' he said.'Now it is incumbent for the Judiciary Committee to review the evidence. If it fails to hold any hearings on the resolution within the next thirty days, given the gravity of the charges and the moment, I will once again bring a similar privileged resolution of Impeachment to the House. We must not only create an historical record of the misconduct of the Bush Administration but we must make sure that any future Administration is forewarned about the Constitutionally proscribed limits of executive authority and exercise of power contravening the Constitution,' Kucinich said.Kucinich opposed the Iraq invasion and campaigned against it before the Congress authorized it. He reportedly persuaded a number of his colleagues to vote against the authorization bill. He challenged the legality of the war in court, and put forward a detailed plan over four years ago to end the occupation of Iraq.Two weeks prior to the March 2003 Iraq invasion, the U.S. Department of Defense said it had plans to protect Iraq’s oil wells and facilities. “Oil is a natural resource of Iraq that provides commerce, income for education and other needs, and infrastructure,' a Pentagon statement said. In warning that the Saddam Hussein regime had both “the capability and the intent to damage or destroy Iraq's oil fields,” the Defense Department said, “Reliable reports indicate that these activities have been planned, and in some cases, may already have begun. Recent information revealed that Iraq has received 24 railroad boxcars full of pentolite explosives.”“Economically, destruction of the oil fields could have enormous and lasting effects on Iraq's post-war economy. Iraq's oil is vitally important for the future of the Iraqi people. The department estimates the potential income to the Iraqi people from oil at $20 to $30 billion a year,” the DoD statement said.“U.S. plans are first to prevent the destruction of Iraq's oil fields and second, if unable to prevent the destruction, to control and mitigate the damage quickly. The department has crafted strategies that will allow U.S. forces to secure and protect the oil fields as rapidly as possible in order to preserve them prior to destruction. U.S. military forces would be responsible for securing and protecting the oil sites, and under appropriate contractual arrangements, private sector companies would extinguish any fires and assess damage to oil facilities,” the Pentagon statement said.“The department has a plan for dealing, on short notice, with oil well fires that might occur in Iraq. Brown & Root Services a division of Kellogg Brown & Root, Inc., Houston developed the plan, which also addresses assessing damage to oil facilities, for the government,” the statement said. Kellogg Brown & Root, Inc., is a division of Halliburton, the company once headed by Cheney.On July 17 2003 Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption and abuse, said that documents turned over by the Commerce Department, under court order as a result of Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit concerning the activities of the Cheney Energy Task Force, contained a map of Iraqi oilfields, pipelines, refineries and terminals, as well as 2 charts detailing Iraqi oil and gas projects, and “Foreign Suitors for Iraqi Oilfield Contracts.” The documents, which are dated March 2001, are available at www.judicialwatch.orgFormer Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill has long argued that Cheney agitated for U.S. intervention in Iraq well prior to the terrorist attacks of September 11. Additional evidence that Cheney played an early planning role is contained in a previously undisclosed National Security Council document, dated February 3, 2001. The top-secret document, written by a high-level National Security Council official, concerned Cheney’s Energy Task Force. It directed the N.S.C. staff to cooperate fully with the Energy Task Force as it considered “the “melding” of two seemingly unrelated areas of policy: “the review of operational policies towards rogue states,” such as Iraq, and “actions regarding the capture of new and existing oil and gas fields.”
