This Just Confirms...

...what most of us already knew. An Italian Parlimentary Commission has concluded, "beyond a reasonable doubt" that the Soviet Union was behind the 1981 plot to assassinate Pope John Paul II. While the draft report has no bearing on any judicial investigations, it would mark the first time any formal body has blamed the USSR for the attempt on the pontiff's life.

The Soviets feared John Paul because of his support for Poland's Solidarity trade union, and his efforts to end communist domination of the eastern bloc. The assassination plot was carried out by the KGB's Bulgarian proxies, who hired the trigger man, Turkey native Mehmet Ali Agca, who was recently released from an Italian prison. Agca has constantly changed his story on who hired him to kill the Pope, although he intially blamed the Soviets.

Twenty-five years after the shooting in St. Peter's Square, the assassination plot is a reminder of the Soviet Union's evil legacy, and an example of how far the Kremlin was willing to go to maintain its hold on Eastern Europe. And that begs another question: if the plot against John Paul had succeeded, would the KGB have been willing to order hits on the other major advocates of freedom in the eastern bloc, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and of course, Ronald Reagan.

And no, I'm not saying that John Hinckley was a KGB operative, although it galls me that Mr. Hinckley has served his "sentence" in a mental hosptial and he now gets weekend visits to his family's palatial estate in Virginia. Some punishment.

Yes, that wacko who greased John Lennon?

"You say you want a revolution.... People carrying pictures of Chairman Mao, ain't gonna make it with anyone anyhow... But if you got money for (to whack) people with minds that hate... You know you can count me out...In."

It's not about money, for me anyhow, I'm already helping with the expenses.
Got to help make up the difference between Can 1.8% and US 3.7%.

On an important note:

This is war folks don't get fooled. The stakes are very high my friends.

"There are those who are awarded secret Medals and there are secret Knights who for honour beyond the call won in wars of shadow all"

To whom it may concern,
Examples of bullshot.

You ever notice those blogs that leave a bad taste in your mouth, you know the ones that are bleary and foggy and just close to the mark but totally wrong? You can't find anything straight at their sites. Everything is like baffling brains with bullshit. You won't find a straight forward way to comment on their ridiculous posts or you can't find e-mail addresses without going through some elaborate maze etc. They like to pretend that they have been patriotic soldiers who served their country and then they sound of like Mother Shaheen etc. These guys for example:

Than there are the blogs that pretend to be the other guys but they really are someone else trying to gage their opponents.
Just before the re-election of President Bush, Iraq, in the midst of the war at home made victorious pre-emptive strikes against the likes of these moonbats and others, two days ahead schedule. Details are not available.
(Please note some are not obvious.)

As an added bonus check these guys out.

Here the genuine article, enjoy -
"Baby's back, dressed in Black"

PS A clue to identifying the enemy is by the way they talk. Example "Shut The Fuck Up! We'll Defend America." Versus "Loose Lips Sink Ships." Close decernment is sometimes required to distinguish between dupes and oversight.
