"I found Donald Rumsfeld's article
frightening to say the least. Donald Henry Rumsfeld is basically
calling for everyone to get in line and support the George Walker Bush agenda,
which is based on lies, while stating,
"ultimately, the truth wins out." This is exactly why we need a free, unbiased
media and an educated citizenry. One can't help but think that Nazi
propagandist Joseph Goebbels is applauding
Donald Rumsfeld's piece from the
grave." - Chris Wolfe
"Bigger and better spin control will not convince
increasingly skeptical Americans or
long incredulous citizens of the world that the war in Iraq is a vital "battle
in which the survival of
our free way of life is at stake," as
continues to insist. Free people all over the Earth have already been exposed
to sufficient information to find their way to the truth:
arrogance, disregard for life, duplicity and incompetence helped pave the way
to unnecessary war. Bigger and better spin control will not change this fact
nor the minds of the Earth's free-thinking citizens."- Paul Nichols
"I've worked with
Rumsfeld three times in my life. I've been to each of his
houses, in Chicago, Taos, Santa
Fe, Santo Domingo, and Las Vegas. I'm very, very fond of him, but I'm crushed
by his performance. Donald Henry
Rumsfeld certainly fooled me."-

2007 The US government procures $1
billion worth of Tamiflu from
Gilead Sciences to "protect" the country in the case of a bird flu pandemic -
enough for one third of the population. Between 1997 and 2007 there was 349
reported cases of bird flu (H5N1) and at least 216 deaths. The death rate of
the human population from bird flu is approximately 1 out of 27,800,000.
Tamiflu costs $100 for
a recommended 5 day prescription.
Tamiflu, now the Roche
Holding AG drug for influenza, could not
fight most infections diagnosed in the American flu season of 2008. More than
half of the flu viruses analyzed were of the
H1N1 strain. Virtually
all the H1N1
viruses the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tested, 72 of 73, were
Tamiflu-resistant according to Joseph Bresee, chief of

Donald Rumsfeld implemented the Rumsfeld Doctrine
which sought to increase force readiness and decrease the amount of supplies
required to maintain forces, by reducing the numbers in a theater. This is done
mainly by using LAVs (Light Armoured Vehicles) to scout for enemies who are
then destroyed via airstrikes. Afghanistan and the Iraq wars are considered the
two closest implementations of the Rumsfeld Doctrine.
Rumsfeld authorized the mistreatment of detainees at
Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq,
authorized the army to break the Geneva Conventions by not registering all
prisoners and authorized civilian contractors to use
techniques such as
sleep deprivation during
interrogation in memos and
letters according to former US Army Brigadier General Janis
"The methods consisted of making prisoners stand for long
periods, sleep deprivation ...
playing music at full
volume, having to sit in uncomfortably ... Rumsfeld authorized these
specific techniques. The

Former US Army
Brigadier General Janis Karpinski said in November 2006 she was ready to
testify against Rumsfeld if a suit filed by civil rights groups in Germany over
Abu Ghraib led to a full investigation.
In a memo titled "Illustrative
New Courses of Action" issued November 6, 2006 Donald Henry Rumsfeld suggested
that one way to solve the Iraq problem is by paying off key political and
religious leaders so they would be more compliant with American occupying
"On the eve of the invasion, as it began to dawn on a few US
officials that the price for rebuilding Iraq would be vastly greater than they
had been told, the degree of miscalculation was illustrated in an encounter
between Donald Henry Rumsfeld, then the defense secretary, and Jay Garner, the
retired lieutenant general who had hastily been named the chief of what would
be a short-lived civilian authority called the Office of Reconstruction and
Humanitarian Assistance. Garner presented Rumsfeld with several alternative
rebuilding plans, including one that would include projects across Iraq.
"What do you think that'll cost?" Rumsfeld asked of the more expansive
"I think it's going to cost billions of dollars," Garner said.
"My friend," Rumsfeld replied, "if you think we're going to spend a
billion dollars of our money over there, you are sadly mistaken."
Before that year was out, the United States had appropriated more than
$20 billion for the reconstruction.
The secondary effects of the
invasion and its aftermath were among the most important factors that radically
changed the outlook. Tables in the history show that measures of things like
the production of electricity and oil; public access to potable water, mobile
and landline telephone service; and the presence of Iraqi security forces all
plummeted at least 70%, and in some cases all the way to zero, in the weeks
after the invasion. Subsequent tables in the history give a fast-forward view
of what happened as the avalanche of money tumbled into Iraq over the next five
years. By the time a sovereign Iraqi government took over from the Americans in
June 2004, none of those services - with a single exception, mobile phones -
had returned to prewar levels. And by the time of the security improvements in
2007 and 2008, electricity output had, at best, a precarious 10% lead on its
levels under Saddam
Hussein; oil production was still below prewar levels; and access to
potable water had increased about 30%, although with the nation's ruined piping
system it was unclear how much actually reached people's homes uncontaminated."

Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which
requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church
buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a
personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the
knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has
enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are
spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against
individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate
