After the world wars, people in ‘authoritative organisations’ got together to make war a crime against humanity:
- the Briand-Kellogg Pact in 1929
- the Nuremberg Trials in 1945/6
- by the United Nations in 1970
Despite that, illegal wars are being fought – with the sanction of the Judiciary – and children are the prime sufferers!
Similarly, the protection of children is enshrined in law:
- the Children Act 1989 - where it’s spelled out how Social Services SHOULD behave
- the European Convention on Human Rights - where the right for fair trials and family life are guaranteed
- the European Convention on Recognition and Enforcement of Decisions concerning Custody of Children and on Restoration of Custody of Children - where it’s CLEAR that Bailie should have been returned to Belgium
- the United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child - where it’s CLEAR that the child SHOULD BE HEARD!
But who ensures that these ‘wonderful words’ are being adhered to???
Mind the Gap: between the Law and its Enforcement; that’s what Nigel Cooper whose daughter was abducted from Belgium and has been held against her will by Sunderland Council, has just been told by the Cabinet Office; i.e. we know the Law but we are not responsible; it’s the Judiciary who are independent (and above the law?)!

How do I feel ’bragging’ about the fact that my mum saved me from the bombings of Dresden?
- I am glad to have ‘e-met’ Chris Powis whose father was a WWII-Veteran with a heart and conscience with whom I can share the experiences of my parents that got imprinted on my thinking and feeling
- I feel proud of my mum and deeply sorry that she had to go through such a terrible experience
- I am reminded of her wonderful book of poems that she put together for her children – to illustrate what gave her strength when she needed it
- I used one of these sayings to announce her passing away:
If there is anything mightier than fate or destiny,
it is the character of the person who bears it unshakably. Continue reading
The web does give us all the info we need to make certain points and the images to go with it!
This Facebook page is full of wonderful photos and images that serve as wake-up calls.
I ‘met’ its author Chris Roubis because we have linking to Unlawful Killing in common. His linking resulted in his website being taken down by HostGator.
It seems that we’ll have to build a directory of ethical web hosting sites!

A very explicit Early Day Motion (EDM) by Paul Flynn MP: http://www.parliament.uk/edm/2012-13/531:
That this House regrets the failure of the Government to list the present perils of the Afghanistan situation in its bland, self-deluding September statement; notes that it ignores the increased level of green on blue attacks, the deepening corruption of the Karzai regime, the early withdrawal of troops by the UK’s allies in Canada, the Netherlands and New Zealand, the increased power of the Taliban which is collecting taxes and running courts in large parts of the country, the failure to curb the narcotic trade and the cost and difficulties of withdrawal; and believes that Parliament is insulted and demeaned by incompetent propaganda and echoes the end of the First World War when our soldier lions were led by political donkeys.
We are trying to re-establish Legality by making a difference with Meetup regarding Accountability and Illegality.
False Flag operations are not general knowledge. But thanks to the net, more and more people have learned about them.
In the spirit of 9/11 in New York and 7/7 in London, 26/6 was planned for the opening of the Women’s Football Championship in Berlin in 2011. But thanks to the initiative of two independent lawyers and a number of websites, the attack did not take place. It had been ‘announced’ by the use of many symbols in a number of films.
The same technique has now been detected and presented in a number of videos on YouTube:
The Brussells Tribunal is a group of people questioning the New Imperial World Order.
Regarding the Iraq War, they filed one court case in Spain. When it was found that there was no reason to investigate, a Professor of Law in Champaign, USA, filed a complaint with the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
Bush-Bama may not be interested in looking into the legality of the Iraq War and Occupation, but in the UK, a new official inquiry starts today.
Nothing may come of it, but it’s good to be reminded – in detail – about the illegality, immorality and stupidity of this war which was sold on both sides of the Atlantic on a flood of deliberate lies.

Big Oil’s Iraq deals are the greatest stick-up in history
The country’s invaders should be paying billions in reparations not using the war as a reason to pillage its richest resource
Naomi Klein, The Guardian, Friday July 4, 2008
Once oil passed $140 a barrel, even the most rabidly rightwing media hosts had to prove their populist credibility by devoting a portion of every show to bashing Big Oil. Some have gone so far as to invite me on for a friendly chat about an insidious new phenomenon: “disaster capitalism.” It usually goes well – until it doesn’t.

“An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation,
nor does truth become error because nobody sees it”: Mohandas Gandhi
The War, the Truth, and the New York Times
So finally the truth is acknowledged by the mother of all main stream media, the New York Times…Truth told late is worse than a murderous lie is all that one can say to the NYT. It is a dishonest admission coming rather late for a million plus human beings. The icing on this deceitful piece of reporting is the ending of the Op-Ed. It says, “We cannot say with certainty whether Mr. Bush lied about Iraq. But when the president withholds vital information from the public – or leads them to believe things that he knows are not true – to justify the invasion of another country, that is bad enough.” BAD ENOUGH! Did I read it right? Thatʼs it? BAD ENOUGH! Would you believe it? A million murdered Iraqis, 4000 dead US soldiers, obliterated Iraqi cities, DU shot-up environment, countless crippled and maimed human beings, innumerable shattered lives and how does the NYT express its outrage; by calling it ‘bad enoughʼ? “Sorry mommy, I just killed a million people.” “Thatʼs bad. Donʼt do that again, now eat your spinach” eh? Bad enough!?…

War profits taint the greedy hands of more than 25% of members of the US House and Senate!
By Rev. Richard Skaff
Global Research, May 7, 2008
What do war, Congressmen, Senators, and the defense/offense industry have in common? The answer, if you haven’t already guessed is “profits.”
Conflict makes money for the military industrial complex, and the cronies they place in Congress, the Senate, and the White House.
An investigation by Ralph Forbes from American Free press reported on May 05, 2008 that more than a quarter of US senators and congressmen have invested at least $196 million of their own money in companies doing business with the Department of Defense (DoD) that profit from the death and destruction in Iraq .
