Only the White House sees a threat from Iran. The White House is the only ones making threats to peace by starting another war and threatening to attack another country without provocation. The Bush / Cheney White House are the ones who have threatened to use nuclear weapons against another country - not Iran. The threat to the US national security is from the US own White House not any other country.

What will happen when George W Bush and his co-lunatic Dick Cheney gives the order to attack another innocent nation? To their surprise the US commanders might disobey the order for they know that they must obey only lawful orders. There are those who will follow orders only because of promises of advancement in their careers. There are more patriotic military commanders than there are self-serving power hungry yes men. If the US commanders abide by the US Constitution and obey the law of the land then there will be no attack. If the US commanders follow unlawful orders from the lunatics in the White House then they are party to war crimes, crimes against peace and crimes against humanity. If the order is given the US will have more enemies than they can ever imagine. The White House has already been warned that an attack on Iran would be considered an attack on Russia. Iran also has China and Venezuela as allies. If the order is given the US forces in the Middle East could be wiped out as the Arabs will put aside their differences and take up arms against a common enemy - especially if the US or Israel uses nuclear weapons against Iran. An attack on Iran would be suicide for the US. The US will be surrounded. There is a good probability that the Iraqi people will rise up and take advantage of the situation and attack the US troops in their country. Syria will be drawn into the war and will side with Iran against Israel and the US. China and Russia will mobilize in retaliation to a US unprovoked attack on Iran. The odds are stacked up against the US. The US cannot win a war where they are surrounded. The US can’t afford to allow George W Bush and Dick Cheney to attack Iran because it will surely be the end of the US.

The death of a visitor or any visitor to Canada needs special attention. We cannot simply let this recent incident go without making changes to our law enforcement system so that this does not happen again. This incident has tarnished our reputation as it was reported around the World. It was reported as it should have been. A visitor to this great country of ours was killed by our police officers.

First off the man who died as a result of being tasered was unarmed. He immediately recognized the police officers and appeared to have turned to assume the position for being taken into custody. There was no obvious indication that he was armed or that he threatened the officers with a weapon.

Secondly there were 4 officers who could have easily have overpowered this man as their training includes restraining a suspect. In their training the officer must be able to detain an individual by himself or herself. Again there were 4 officers so the taser was not required.

Lastly but most importantly the taser is an offensive weapon. It is a weapon that has already been banned by International treaties and laws. Our own laws also bans this type of weapon as it is recognized as a weapon used against civilians that inflicts torture and inhumane treatment. Torture and inhuman treatment (50,000 volts is inhumane treatment) are forbidden unconditionally, whether in time of peace or war, whether at the local police station or in the face of a major security threat. International human rights law contains no more basic prohibition than the absolute, unconditional ban on torture and what is known as “cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment.” This death as a result of being subjected to a weapon of torture was avoidable. The officers in question broke the law, both national and international law, because they confronted an unarmed civilian and used a weapon of torture to get the man to comply. Because the unarmed man died as a result of their unlawful reaction to a controllable and contained situation (was already in a secured area with no other civilians present) the officers in question deserve more than just a reassignment. They killed an unarmed man. They fired lethal projectiles at an unarmed man who wasn’t resisting arrest or posing an immediate threat to others.

When a weapon causes just one death it is no longer a safe weapon for use in public - it is a lethal weapon - no less lethal than police issued sidearm that shoots bullets. The taser is a weapon. It looks like a firearm and it is a firearm because it fires projectiles that if aimed at another person can cause severe injury or as in this case, death. International law bans these types of weapons so why are we in Canada now defying the law in order to so-call uphold the law? The people being tasered to death by the police are not armed militants or gang members. They are tasering unarmed civilians which according to our laws and International laws is unlawful. Since when did we make exceptions to the rule of law that allows members of our democratic society to torture and kill another? Torture and inhuman treatment are forbidden unconditionally, whether in time of peace or war, whether at the local police station or in the face of a major security threat.

According to US and International law the CIA rendition program is unlawful. Not only does International Law clearly prohibit such practices but so does US law. The rendition program involves kidnapping, terror, torture and unlawful deportation, confinement or transfer. Any country and their citizens can and is authorized by law to use deadly force in self defense of kidnapping, assault and unlawful deportation, confinement or transfer. Protection of US immunity is only valid within the United States. The CIA operates by entering foreign countries illegally by covert insertion or deployment which makes every CIA operation in any country other than the United States illegal and its operatives are subject to the laws of the country infiltrated. US citizens are the only ones bound by US laws. No one, not the CIA operatives, George W Bush or Dick Cheney has immunity from torture and murder. No one is above the law. Murder and torture are both unlawful because sane and civilized societies do not inflict harm or kill other human beings. Murder and torture is an illness - Psychotic disorders. Any one who condones torture and willfully murders another are mentally insane, uncivilized and psychopathic . Psychopathy is as a condition characterized by lack of empathy or conscience, and poor impulse control or manipulative behaviors.

The CIA follows orders given by the president of the United States of America - presently George W Bush. Mr Bush’s orders are unlawful and a mirror reflection of his physiological state. To authorize and condone such inhuman acts against other human beings, including US citizens makes George W Bush unfit to hold the office of the president of the United States of America - he is a psychopath. The prototypical psychopath has deficits or deviances in several areas: interpersonal relationships, emotion, and self-control. Psychopaths lack a sense of guilt or remorse for any harm they may have caused others, instead rationalizing the behavior, blaming someone else, or denying it outright. Psychopaths also lack empathy towards others in general, resulting in tactlessness, insensitivity, and contemptuousness. All of this belies their tendency to make a good, likable first impression. Psychopaths have a superficial charm about them, enabled by their low self-consciousness, a willingness to say anything without concern for accuracy or truth. This extends into their pathological lying and willingness to con and manipulate others for personal gain or amusement. The prototypical psychopath’s emotions are described as a shallow affect, meaning their overall way of relating is characterized by mere displays of friendliness and other emotion for personal gain; the displayed emotion need not correlate with felt emotion, in other words. Shallow affect also describes the psychopath’s tendency for genuine emotion to be short lived and egocentric with an overall cold demeanor. Their behavior is impulsive and irresponsible

Schizophrenia is a psychiatric diagnosis that describes a mental illness characterized by impairments in the perception or expression of reality, most commonly manifesting as auditory hallucinations, paranoid or bizarre delusions or disorganized speech and thinking in the context of significant social or occupational dysfunction.

A person experiencing schizophrenia may demonstrate symptoms such as disorganized thinking, auditory hallucinations, and delusions. In severe cases, the person may be largely mute, remain motionless in bizarre postures, or exhibit purposeless agitation; these are signs of catatonia.

Paranoid schizophrenia is a subtype of schizophrenia. People with paranoid schizophrenia hold untrue beliefs (delusions) or hear things others don’t hear (auditory hallucinations).

You be the judge. Bush and Cheney are the only ones who believe that Iran is building nuclear weapons. Despite evidence that disputes their claims - their own intelligence agencies and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) declaring no such work is being done or sought. If they are right and everyone is wrong then logic states that they - Bush and Cheney - are suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. The same by impairments in the perception or expression of reality was done to build a case for war against Iraq. Iraq had WMDs. Has any ever been found? No! Saddam was seeking to acquire nuclear weapons. Another delusions exposed by Valerie Plame’s husband Ambassador Joseph Wilson.

The biggest piece of evidence of a mental illness called paranoid schizophrenia came even before the 2000 presidential elections - “I feel like God wants me to run for President. I can’t explain it, but I sense my country is going to need me. Something is going to happen… I know it won’t be easy on me or my family, but God wants me to do it.” –George W. Bush commenting to Texas evangelist James Robinson in the run-up to his presidential campaign. Paranoid schizophrenia and the first sign of a psychopath emerging who is planning for things to come - 9/11.

“God told me to strike at al Qaeda and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam [Hussein], which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East. If you help me I will act, and if not, the elections will come and I will have to focus on them.” –Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Abu Mazen quoting Bush when they met in Aqaba;

“I trust God speaks through me. Without that, I couldn’t do my job.” George W Bush, quoted in the Lancaster New Era, during a private meeting with an Amish group.

Disorganized speech is another characteristic of schizophrenia. Watch any speech or news conference given by George W Bush (the person may be largely mute, remain motionless in bizarre postures, or exhibit purposeless agitation). Most people have declared his to be just a babbling idiot. The correct diagnosis is that from day one, George W Bush has been suffering from schizophrenia and his disorganized speech is the sign. All the evidence for 9/11 clearly declare that Iraq, Afghanistan or Iran had nothing to do with the attacks of 9/11 yet Bush and Cheney perceived that they did and proceeded to attack and now occupy the countries that fit their delusions. Iran has made no threat to the US or any other country yet Bush and Cheney hold untrue beliefs (delusions). Both have made numerous strange statements like Iran is going to start WWIII by refusing to admit to their delusions. It is time to get these 2 the help they need before their actions cause more deaths and destruction.

Signs/Symptoms

Schizophrenia usually develops gradually, although onset can be sudden. Friends and family often notice the first changes before the victim does. Among the signs are:

* Confusion
* Inability to make decisions
* Hallucinations
* Changes in eating or sleeping habits, energy level, or weight
* Delusions
* Nervousness
* Strange statements or behavior
* Anger
* Indifference to the opinions of others
* A tendency to argue
* A conviction that you are better than others, or that people are out to get you
