Foreign Terrorists Are Funding Anti-Corporate Protests

I couldn't beleive this was supposed to be real, so I pass it on. The next
place that a "Direct Action Network" group will be organising is in Calgary,
hence the idiocy and/or hysteria of the article. Good for a laugh, anyways.

 Mystery lurks behind protest

 Many will be surprised when true nature of demonstrators is known

 By PAUL JACKSON, Calgary Sun

 Someone, somewhere -- in the FBI, CIA, RCMP, CSIS, MI5, MI6 and
 other intelligence and police agencies in the western world --
 must be asking a question that one day will unravel with damning

 The question is: Who is covertly financing and directing the protest
 groups that rocked the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Seattle,
 threatened to close down the International Monetary Fund (IMF)
 meetings in Washington, and now are focusing on the World Petroleum
 Congress in Calgary in June?

 How is it these supposedly motley crews -- looking like the
 disorganized flotsam and jetsam of the world's radical left --
 can be so well organized?

 What planning goes into shipping thousands of these zealots to
 Seattle, Washington and soon Calgary?

 Where did they get their targets and how did they manage
 communication, travel and accommodation plans on such a vast scale?

 Who delighted in seeing the carnage in the streets of Seattle, and
 savours the disruptions that may soon occur upon the streets of

 And why -- in democratic nations like the United States and Canada
 -- are the representatives of legitimate worldwide organizations
 being made to perspire and even fear what may befall them?

 Well, sooner or later, we are going to find out, and then the sham
 of those who pretend to be so concerned about the environment, child
 labour in the Third World and 101 other bogus 'matters of conscience'
 will be revealed.

 Here are three immediate possibilities:

 *Libya's Moammar Gadhafi.

 *Iraq's Saddam Hussein.

 *Afghanistan's Osama bin Laden

 All are prone to promote world terrorism with an aim to destabilize
 the western democracies.

 A trial is now under way in Lockerbie, Scotland, involving suspected
 Libyan agents' role in the 1988 downing of Pan Am flight 103 and the
 deaths of its 259 passengers, and bin Laden -- the "elusive
 billionaire" -- is being fingered by the FBI as financing terrorism
 by Algerian extremists -- including a Canadian connection.

 Let's backtrack a bit. From the 1950s to the 1990s, western
 democracies witnessed all kinds of mass protest movements against
 the policies of their elected governments.

 We had groups like the "Ban the Bomb"' movement wanting the west to
 get rid of its nuclear weapons, groups urging us to disarm completely
 and trust the Soviet Union to later do the same, student protest
 groups spawning riots on issue after issue, and actually bringing
 down the government of France's Charles de Gaulle, and groups with
 military wings like the Irish Republican Army.

 Find an issue or manufacture one, and some radical group would spring
 up to oppose it.

 We now know many of these causes were orchestrated by Moscow and its
 puppet regimes in Eastern Europe -- particularly East Germany -- and
 the groups financed by the Kremlin and its front organizations.

 Moscow was involved in shipping arms to the IRA, and Moscow and
 Beijing were behind much of the Vietnam anti-war movement.

 The collapse of the Soviet Union and the opening of files has also
 revealed any number of the west's left-wing and liberal politicians
 and bureaucrats had been co-opted by our enemies.

 Much of this was known or suspected by our intelligence
 organizations, but kept under wraps for either legal or security
 reasons -- or to prevent mass unease or even panic by western

 Some of the culprits in the Moscow/Beijing-directed operations were
 out-and-out traitors, some sold out for money, some were blackmailed,
 and many were simply 'useful' dupes.

 Some of these "useful dupes," such as the unilateral disarmament
 types, were astonished to learn they had been used as pawns and were
 regarded as "idiots" by their puppetmasters.

 Ten-to-one, a lot of us will again be surprised -- even stunned --
 when the true identity and nature of the latest radical protest
 groups are revealed.
