Radiation Highway Protestors & pRepaRing the Battlefield
Trying to abstain from becoming puissant, before the new-Rome’s complete takeover of friends, family and MK Ultra for Bourgeois society, is trying and making gray my hair, but not my efforts. The bLogs can be tiring if one does not use ‘computerese’ shortcut methods and immense filing or w buddies and possible co-ed comrade-shrift. What commensurately needs to be done is speaking-Out and by that we mean “by the people’s wills” collectively, individually and thru peace-Justice for communications rational-Sense. The other factor is we’re late. The Republic is gone and the Radionuclides are adding-up to Neurotic-INdifferences because the Congress was, after the Generals and nonesuch for propaganda transfigured neurosis-Planning is okay as long as venues for intel-Gence is coupled w endless budget overlays. Of course this has meant increases in both military-Procurements and military-Spending on stupidity items, until the very last and then we see NSDU-238 was never announced as useful, therefore was made for purveyance. That of ennui not rhetoric, implicates coversion of other non-innocuous fiddle pronouncements for H.A.R.R.P. to be coupled w Geo-Engineering. “R”
“Before the day was over, the protesters had more possible evidence. An activist named Gunter Monkowski brought a radiation meter to the protest, and recorded five spikes of abnormally high radiation, ranging from 40 counts per minute to 75 cpm, over a 3 1/2-hour period. The island’s normal background radiation is about 5-25 cpm. Depleted uranium, or DU, comes from the spent fuel rods of nuclear reactors, and is used in military ordinance such as antitank rounds and “bunker buster” bombs. The hazards of DU are hotly debated, but it allegedly has been linked to diseases ranging from cancer and birth defects to “Gulf War Syndrome,” which has afflicted thousands of returning vets.
The army has repeatedly denied using ordnance containing DU at Pohakuloa. But the Army also denied using DU on O’ahu-until it announced last January that 15 DU tailfins and exploded shell fragments were found at Schofield Barracks. According to the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, those shells were probably spotter rounds from a “Davy Crockett,” a 1960s-vintage gun designed to throw tactical nuclear shells.
Last April, a visiting anti-DU activist recorded a 95 cpm radiation reading on the farm of South Kona resident Doug Fox.
“There was this gusty wind blowing right off the saddle, and we knew they were doing active maneuvers with Strykers, because the red warning flag was out up there,” on the day of the reading, Fox told the Journal.
The army claims that no maneuvers or live firing happened that day.
The dignitaries on the Saddle Road had mixed reactions to the protestor’s message.
” I hate uranium. I hate it. It’s not that I disagree with you,” Kona Councilmember Brenda Ford told one protestor. But she refused a proffered booklet on the effects of DU.
Mayor Harry Kim also spoke briefly with the activists. He told the Journal that a protestor had asked him if he knew the area was contaminated with radiation.
“I said, ‘You don’t know me very well, or you’d know that I wouldn’t let that happen,” Kim recounted. He praised the new road, which he believes would eventually cut commuting time between East and West Hawai’i to 1 1/2 hours Skylark Rosetti, the ceremony’s organizer, told the Journal the general public was kept out because the area was still a construction zone. Asked why the zone was considered safe enough for Senator Inouye but not the public, she said that the purpose of the ceremony was to thank “all the people involved.” ”If [the activists] were protesting the road, I could understand it, but they’re protesting other things,” remarked Rosetti. “They are intruding on my right to ask my kupuna to help bless this road, so that all will be safe.” ”I’ve been called many names, and this is almost like sainthood to me,” remarked Inouye in the ceremony’s keynote address. He defended his use of defense money for the project:”[The road] has to be for the national good. Otherwise, the state and the county pick up the tab.”
He called Pohakuloa “the most important training site in the Pacific.” Some protestors maintained that the road was less about commuter convenience than about keeping people out of Pohakuloa. They noted that this first section to be completed replaced a stretch that crossed the training area’s firing range, where DU contamination, if it existed, was likely to be. Some activists also decried Inouye’s recent support of a bill to finance the war in Iraq. ”I was one for the 23 in the Senate who voted against the war when it wasn’t easy,” Inouye countered. Shannon Monkowski had a different take on Inouye’s record. ”He gets his support from Lockheed Martin, which manufactures depleted uranium ammunition; General Dynamics, which manufactures the Stryker vehicle; Raytheon and Boeing, Northrup Grumman,” she said. “When I read stories about Daniel Inouye, it’s always about how he’s bringing home the pork, but never that he’s giving the taxpayers’ money to these corporations and then they give part of it back to him. “ Asked about the DU controversy, Inouye told the Journal, “We’ve been checking out everything that the people are concerned about… This is a highway where the community was involved.”
“Radiation Highway? Protestors closed out of Saddle Road opening” Hawaii Journal 6-16-07 by Alan D. McNarie http://www.hawaiiislandjournal.com/2007/0616c.html
Preparing for the myriad of brainless people is the conceptual debasement behind the lacking rhetoric planning of propaganda-Heads as based in phonemes of coRpoRatist offices, if not private boardrooms, too! Microsoft Word used to have a big-Brother ‘slap yuour hand’ method of making all your open documents crash, because you wanted-to-apprise a document the manner in which the honest copying would remind you, since you could not publish that shid-ski anyway-How! Were they that helpful to NSA agents studying how to maintain be an IMPunity resonance, too! Doubtful, yet they were a waste of time, as much as wars and dRones obsequiously are boring-Boredom. Debasement is not merely “planned obsolescence” but Apple has come closer that method in their sleaze to upgrade “energy” flows, so that we’re slower and not wiser. Leadership debased by Fundamentalism is UNjustly not for the general-Populous w “slower and less-Wiser” because they have become odiously stop-down as a new computer is available—but, one cannot see that until 2-3 months from now.
The intel-Gence is both planned forwarding how al Qaeda should be usefully available, and for wars-Continuing, but in advance not from when rhetoric is listless off the anarchyist-President’s lying tongues—look quickly they wag like breathless. Planning the next-War may be eased by maintaining contaminations from NSDU-238 in Irag phase-1, in Bosnia 1995, in Kosovo 19999-200 in Iraq phase-3 and in Libya, because those air-borne ubiquity of stratospheres up-there will never know the INdifference, since microns of ur-238 and pu-239 and ur-234 are yet, weld, up there too! Afghanistan eat your heart pout because as long as your at war the fanatic-PenataGooons will never give you those locales where NSDU-238 was used, utilized and loving. “R”
“The Democratic leadership’s agreement to commit hundreds of millions of dollars for more secret operations in Iran was remarkable, given the general concerns of officials like Gates, Fallon, and many others. “The oversight process has not kept pace – it’s been co-opted” by the Administration, the person familiar with the contents of the Finding said. “The process is broken, and this is dangerous stuff we’re authorizing.”
Senior Democrats in Congress told me that they had concerns about the possibility that their understanding of what the new operations entail differs from the White House’s. One issue has to do with a reference in the Finding, the person familiar with it recalled, to potential defensive lethal action by U.S. operatives in Iran. (In early May, the journalist Andrew Cockburn published elements of the Finding in Counterpunch, a newsletter and online magazine.)
The language was inserted into the Finding at the urging of the C.I.A., a former senior intelligence official said. The covert operations set forth in the Finding essentially run parallel to those of a secret military task force, now operating in Iran, that is under the control of JSOC. Under the Bush Administration’s interpretation of the law, clandestine military activities, unlike covert C.I.A. operations, do not need to be depicted in a Finding, because the President has a constitutional right to command combat forces in the field without congressional interference. But the borders between operations are not always clear: in Iran, C.I.A. agents and regional assets have the language skills and the local knowledge to make contacts for the JSOC operatives, and have been working with them to direct personnel, material, and money into Iran from an obscure base in western Afghanistan. As a result, Congress has been given only a partial view of how the money it authorized may be used. One of JSOC’s task-force missions, the pursuit of “high-value targets,” was not directly addressed in the Finding. There is a growing realization among some legislators that the Bush Administration, in recent years, has conflated what is an intelligence operation and what is a military one in order to avoid fully informing Congress about what it is doing.”
