Einige wichtige reproduzierbare Kurzzeitreaktionen auf Mobilfunkbestrahlung bei gesunden Erwachsenen:

Verklumpung der roten Blutkörperchen (Geldrollenphänomen – im Dunkelfeldmikroskop schon nach 90 Sekunden Handytelefonat zu sehen). Langanhaltende EEG-Veränderungen (z.T. tagelang) und Störung der kognitiven Leistungen nach kurzer Handybenutzung bzw. Exposition mit entsprechender Strahlung. Störung des Schlaf- Wachrhythmus, Veränderung von Blutdruck und Herzfrequenz. Signifikante Verminderung der Zahl der schnellen Spermien und Vermehrung der langsamen bei Männern, die fünf Tage lang jeweils sechs Stunden lang ein Handy am Gürtel getragen haben. Mangelnde Ausreifung roter Blutkörperchen, Verminderung der Lymphozyten, Verminderung von Melatonin (u.a. wichtig für die Krebsabwehr).

Ein weiteres alarmierendes Forschungsergebnis: Öffnung der Blut-Hirn-Schranke und Zerstörung von Neuronen im Gehirn von Ratten durch Handy-Strahlung. Das Rattengehirn ist dem menschlichen Gehirn physiologisch sehr ähnlich, und Untersuchungen über mögliche Schädigungen beim Menschen durch z.B. Medikamente werden daher oft an Ratten durchgeführt.

Darüber hinaus lassen die Art der EEG-Veränderungen beim Menschen bei Bestrahlung mit Mobilfunkwellen darauf schließen, dass auch beim Menschen die Blut-Hirn-Schranke geöffnet wird. Dies bedeutet den ungehinderten Eintritt von Umweltgiften, wie z.B. Schwermetallen in den Hirnblutkreislauf und damit eine Potenzierung der Schädigung durch Schwermetalle und Mobilfunkwellen. U.a. kann damit die derzeitige erschreckende Zunahme von Parkinson- und Alzheimerähnlichen Zuständen in Zusammenhang stehen...

Ein jederzeit nachweisbares Phänomen ist die Agglutination von Erythrozyten (Geldrollenphänomen) in der Dunkelfeld-Vitalblut-Mikroskopie als Folge von E-Smog, was gemeinsam mit spastischen Verengungen von Präkapillaren zu Durchblutungsverminderungen führt.

http://www.buergerwelle.de/d/doc/gesund/pk-esensibel.htm


Prof Salford, Lund, Schweden zeigte, dass die Blut-Hirn-Schranke, die das Gehirn vor Giftstoffen und auch körpereigenen Eiweißen schützt, selbst noch beim 20.000-fachen unter der Leistung eines Handys versagt. (Alzheimerähnliche Symptome, Geldrollenphänomen der roten Blutkörperchen nach dem Telefonieren) Hier spielen wieder die Biologischen Fenster eine wesentliche Rolle, das heißt, weniger Leistung kann mehr Schaden anrichten.

Nach 2-jähriger Leidenszeit erkannte sie die Hochfrequenzemission endlich als die eigentliche Ursache ihrer Beschwerden und floh in eine Ferienwohnung in einem noch unbelasteten Seitental im südlichen Schwarzwald, wo sie schlagartig wieder schlafen konnte und ihre Beschwerden sich bis auf die weiterbestehenden Ohrgeräusche deutlich besserten bis völlig verschwanden. In dieser Zeit entstand das untere Blutbild. Es ist nicht schwer, sich vorzustellen, daß dieses Geldrollenphänomen, welches Sie auf dem oberen Bild sehr ausgeprägt sehen, die Fließeigenschaft des Blutes drastisch verschlechtern kann, so daß es bei entsprechender Vorbelastung sogar zur Verstopfung von Gefäßen kommen kann. Als Umweltmedizinerin merke ich auf, wenn in der Frankfurter Rundschau vom 25.01. d. J. zu lesen ist, daß der Schlaganfall in Deutschland bereits die zweithäufigste Todesursache darstellt, daß im Klinikum Kassel im Jahre 1992 noch 500 Schlaganfallpatienten registriert wurden, im vergangenen Jahr waren es bereits doppelt so viele. In der Neurologischen Universitätsklinik in Minden verdoppelte sich die Zahl sogar innerhalb eines Jahres.

Es ist nicht auszuschließen, dass der Einfluß der hochfrequenten Strahlen unter den zweifelsohne vielen anderen ursächlichen Faktoren mitverantwortlich ist für diese fatale Entwicklung...

Dies wiederum kann mit Tinnitus bzw. Hörstürzen in Zusammenhang gebracht werden. Auch Augengefäßthrombosen, Linsentrübungen und Makula-Degenerationen könnten damit korrelieren. Das Problem in der Diskussion besteht darin, dass die Frage der Resonanz verschieden aufgefasst wird...

Eher durch Zufall kam ein Düsseldorfer Arzt einer anderen Folge der modernen Quasselsucht auf die Spur. Der Umweltmediziner Dr. Joachim Petersohn stellte fest, dass Patienten, die über Schlafstörungen oder Kopfschmerzen klagen, häufig Vieltelefonierer sind. Blutuntersuchungen deuten auf einen Zusammenhang hin. Er untersucht Patientenblut im Dunkelfeld-Mikroskop: "Das hier ist ein gesundes Blutbild. Die Blutkörperchen sind aktiv, bewegen sich frei und sind in der Lage, ihrer Aufgabe nachzukommen." Ein dreiminütiges Telefonat mit dem Handy reicht, um das Blutbild radikal zu verändern: "Sie erkennen deutlich den Unterschied. Die Blutkörperchen sind jetzt zusammengeklebt wie in einem Geldrollenpaket. Normalerweise stoßen sich die Blutkörperchen gegenseitig wie Pingpongbälle ab, sind mobil und aktiv. Wenn die jetzt plötzlich durch das Feld des Telefons wie magnetisch angezogen aneinanderkleben und diese Zusammenballung durch kleine Gefäße hindurch fließen muss, dann ist die Gefahr relativ hoch, dass es zu Verstopfungen kommt, also z.B. zu Thrombose, Infarkt oder Schlaganfall."

Dazu der Wiener Arzt Wolfgang Köstler: "Der Mobilfunk ist in einem Bereich impulsgetaktet, der als mechanischer Resonanzbereich der Blutgefäßwände gilt. Mir ist ein Fall eines Patienten (Geschäftsmann in der Elektronikbranche) bekannt, der täglich über viele Stunden mit seinem GSM-Handy beruflich telefonierte und, obwohl noch sehr jung an Jahren, plötzlich die Zeichen eines Schlaganfalles mit Halbseitenläsion zeigte. Er wurde auf eine neurologische Spezialstation eingeliefert, wo man aber kein Substrat für diesen Schlaganfall im Sinn eines Gefäßverschlusses oder einer Blutung - weder im Computertomographen noch in der Magnetresonanz (MRI) des Gehirns - finden konnte. Erst nach Wochen bildeten sich die Symptome langsam wieder zurück. Der Betroffene konnte für sich selbst den Zusammenhang zwischen einem stundenlangen Telefonieren mit seinem Handy und dem Schlaganfall herstellen ... Es ist auch bekannt, dass gepulste Mikrowellen zu einem Anstieg des Fibrinogenspiegels im Blut führen, was zu einer erhöhten Gerinnungsneigung des Blutes führt."

Beifang: Umweltschützer fordern stärkeren Schutz für Nord- und Ostsee (13.10.04)

Die Umweltorganisation Greenpeace hat die Europäische Union dazu aufgefordert, die "Plünderung der Meere" zu stopppen. Rund 1.000 Grundschleppnetze durchpflügten und zerstörten mit ihren schweren Eisenketten regelmässig den Meeresboden der Nordsee, so der Vorwurf. Greenpeace wendet sich mit einer Protestaktion an europäische Wissenschaftler und Politiker, die seit Mittwoch beim Umweltrat der Bundesregierung im Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin tagen, um auf EU-Ebene eine politische Strategie zum ganzheitlichen Meeresschutz zu erarbeiten. "Zu jeder servierten Seezunge oder Scholle müssten neun weitere Teller mit Meerestieren serviert werden, die vollkommen sinnlos als Beifang gestorben sind", sagt Thomas Henningsen, Meeresexperte von Greenpeace.

Der Bundesausschuss Friedensratschlag fordert den Rücktritt des Verteidigungsministers Peter Struck. Die jüngsten Äußerungen des SPD-Politikers zum möglichen Einsatz deutscher Soldaten im Irak stießen bei der Friedensinitiative auf scharfen Widerstand. Zurückblickend habe sich Struck seit seinem Amtsantritt vor drei Jahren "zu einem gefährlichen außenpolitischen Torpedo im rot-grünen Kabinett gemausert.", so die Friedensinitiative. Als besonders "alarmierend" an Äußerungen Strucks gegenüber der Financial Times Deutschland (FTD) sei das politische Umfeld, in dem es entstanden sei.

Risk evaluation of potential environmental hazards from low-energy electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure using sensitive in vitro methods

CORDIS RTD-PROJECTS/
http://www.cordis.lu/en/src/g_021_en.htm

European Communities.
Record Control Number: 51989
Quality Validation Date: 2003-04-01
Update Date: 2003-05-05
Project Acronym: REFLEX

Title: Risk evaluation of potential environmental hazards from
low-energy electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure using sensitive in vitro methods

Subject Index: Environmental Protection; Life Sciences; Medicine, Health; Safety

Objective: Electromagnetic field (EMF) has become a topic of Europe-wide discussion. The latter has created uncertainty regarding possible adverse health effects for both the population and industry. Current research is characterized by conflicting data from epidemiological and animal studies, especially with respect to possible risk of cancer at different sites and neurological disorders. Clearly, mere continuation or replication of research, without introducing innovative concepts, will prolong the uncertainty as to whether EMFS do, or do not, represent a health risk. The results of this joint project, which will investigate molecular and functional responses of living cells to EMFS in vitro by applying state-of-the-art methods of molecular biology and toxicology, are needed urgently for molecular epidemiological studies, which are probably the only path to a reliable risk estimate for possible effects of EMFS on human health. Start Date: 2003-09-01 End Date: 2006-08-31

Duration: 36 months Project Status: Accepted Project Cost: 3.15 million euro Project Funding: 2.06 million euro Programme Type: 5th FWP (Fifth Framework Programme) Programme Acronym: LIFE QUALITY

The stakes are high, the public is divided, and extreme rhetoric is flying. So it always is the month before the presidential election. Why? Because of the power of the office, the very existence of which is contrary to any robust notion of freedom. The President of the United States on his sole decision deploys troops anywhere in the world, blockades and embargoes foreign countries, imposes trade tariffs, and engages in election cycle credit inflation. Around the world, he bombs innocent people, launches invasions and deploys weapons of mass destruction...

Jaywalk to freedom

Strike the Root

10/11/04

Liberty is never up for grabs; it must always be taken by force. There are usually costs and even risks to life and limb. Drivers of the Chariot of Independence don't have the luxury of seatbelts or airbags, yet they gladly put their lives on the line in hopes of achieving self-determination. In the heart of a rebel there can be no greater dream and no higher aspiration. The exhilaration of freedom is without peer. Of course, if you or I endeavor to achieve independence we'll be in big trouble. We would attract attention from demented people with large weapons and small brains. So maybe we could just snatch thirty seconds of it then duck for cover instead...

Deconstructing Bush

CounterPunch

10/12/04

'The diffusion of ideas is propaganda, whether fascist, communist, or democratic,' the great historian Jacques Barzun wrote many years ago. 'The democratic hope has always been to raise the standard of gullibility, to sharpen judgment, to confront opposite propagandas.' The Republican success has been to lower the standard of gullibility, to muddle judgment in the bullying language of fear, to make confronting propaganda seem like an assault on patriotism. Democracy has suffered. It is suffering, and it needs rescuing. The greatest mockery is that this is the party claiming to be spreading democracy abroad and protecting it at home. There may not be absolute truths. But there are absolute crocks, and this is one of them...

It's the obvious political ad that has just been waiting to be made -- a young Iraq war veteran, missing a body part, talking simply and directly to the camera about the sacrifice he made in the service of official lies. The idea didn't come from the Democratic Party, or MoveOn.org, or the Kerry campaign. The new ad is the creation of a group of some 20 Iraq war veterans operating on a shoestring budget. Their organization, Operation Truth, a nonpartisan, nonprofit group of 150 members, is dedicated to elevating the perspective of soldiers and holding elected officials accountable for their policy decisions."

"[T]he real affront to reality is that ending terrorism isn't a plan-friendly enterprise. It's not like health care where you create a system of tax credits, institutions and bulk-buying mandates to lower costs. No, fighting terrorism is a combination of principles and competence. The principles are simple: don't negotiate with terrorists, kill them when possible, erase the conditions that allow them to flourish, encourage democracy and transparency, improve America's image in the Arab world, devote the appropriate resources to intercepting their plans and protecting against their attacks, and generally doing what every serious person in every serious speech advocates.

That the Republicans are no longer assured of winning the military vote overwhelmingly is perhaps one of the clearest indications that the Bush campaign is in some very big trouble. A key factor in this trend is the unpopularity of the civilian ideologues in the Pentagon, most of whom have never fought in a war, the infamous 'chickenhawks' and neoconservative laptop bombardiers disdained by General Anthony Zinni and an increasingly vocal section of the military, intelligence, and diplomatic communities...

Mobile Phones Again Linked to Cancer - in this Case specifically to Acoustic Neuromas

Dear Colleague:

A team from the Karolinska Institute headed by Prof. Anders Ahlbom has found that the long-term use of mobile phones may indeed lead to higher rates of cancer --specifically acoustic neuromas.

This important news will be officially released at a press conference in Stockholm tomorrow, Wednesday October 13.

I encourage you to read our complete story which is now posted on our Web site. Simply go to http://www.microwavenews.com.

"Biologically Bizzare"?

It is interesting to note that Prof. Anders Ahlbom who led the study, and who is also an ICNIRP member http://www.icnirp.de/cv.htm , stood behind the quotation that the thought that cell phones might be able to cause brain tumors is "biologically bizzare". (Gunni Nordstrom, "The Invisible Disease".)

I don't think he will say that again.

and

The commercial T.V channel reported yesterday about the new study, and Dr. Sigal Sadezki, the epidemiologist who leads the Israeli arm of the INTERPHONE study said that the findings of benign tumors do not prove that it causes malignant tumors.

It is acually a change that she admits that the phone's radiation actually does something because she used to say that no study is good enough to convince her that there is damage. A year after, she said that it is not proved that there is damage and it is not refuted that there is damage. That was her line until yesterday. In a parliment committe she said some time ago that although she doesn't say there is damage, she cannot ignore the study that was published in the scientific peer reviewed journal [she meant Hardell study] "that found what it found" as she put it, without saying the word cancer.

The cellular companies response was that they have all the approvals.

The two big national newspapers did not write a word about the study today, it is not clear whether they will write something in the coming days. Haaretz newspaper did report it, with small headlines and a short item.

Dr. Savitz urges caution on cell phones and children???

In reference to the last message from Microwave News about the latest cell phone research by the Karolinska Institute take special note of Dr. David Savitz's ill-conceived, and ill thought out attempt to down play the study. Sure to go into his "things I should not have said" file!

After he called the findings "still highly unlikely" he went on to state:

"This uncertainty regarding long-term use should not distract from the growing evidence, enhanced by this study, that neither acoustic neuroma nor brain tumors is associated with cell phone use of less than ten years."

Well, fine - so its okay to give my 12 year old son a cell phone provided I take it off him when he is 21. (?)

If we can take Dr. Savitz at his words then it may be forgivable to assume that he is now advising against selling children cell phones?

David - expect a call from Motorola ASAP!

Dear Don

I am sure you are aware of the acoustic neuroma study from the Karolinska institute. Here is an earlier email sent to others in our EMF concerned community (3 attachments included):

Best regards,
Lloyd Morgan

I am attaching the full text (unfortunately without the tables and figures) of the acoustic neuroma study from Epidemiology and a David Savitz commentary from the same journal. The highlights are mine. I will obtain the tables and figures, but it will be sometime next week before I can do so.

I believe the most important aspect of this report is that while they have a very strong finding for use of a cellphone for 10 years or more, they also report that cumulative hours of use of cumulative number of uses does not show an increased risk. How could this be?

My interpretation: cellphones are showing the classic latency time from exposure to tumor diagnoses seen with known carcinogens. My concern: the classic latency time is 25 years (2 or 3 decades). If we are seeing such a dramatic effect at 10 years, what will the increased risk show in another 15 years?

It is also well known that the increased risk for children exposed to a known carcinogen (e.g., ionizing radiation) is far larger than adults receiving the same exposure. I am attaching a presentation received from Kjell Hasson-Mild (from BEMS 2004 meeting). It shows a 6 fold risk for 20 years olds, but a more like a 1.5 fold risk for older groups (see slide 7). While this presentation is not statistically strong (at least not to the 95% confidence level) the shape of the graph is quite suggestive of similar cancer data from ionizing radiation.

Finally, I have the number of USA cellphone subscribers in 6-month increments since the inception of cellphones. I did a "what if" calculation. What if cellphones doubled the risk of brain tumors and the latency time is 10 years. This would increase the number of brain tumors by slightly less than 1%. One percent is within the margin of error for incidence rates. In other words, at 10 years, no increase in overall incidence of brain tumors would be detectable. That an increase is being detected implied either that the risk is more than a doubling, or the latency time is less than 10 years or both.

The Swedish study has finally reached the Danish media. I had several interviews this morning with journalists from radio and newspapers. One from the press bureau Ritzau, the main supplier of news items to Danish media. So it will certainly reached all the other papers. I stressed the danger of mobilphones and children and that more Danish research was necessary on this subject. However, my proposal for such a research project was turned down by the Research grant committee fro Mobilphone research. I also gave them the 2 comments on this list following the information about this study. I also referred to the Leukaemia and Children meeting and the outcome.

To those who understand Danish (=Scandinavians) I will send the Danish newspaper article.

If any of you hasn't read Dr George Carlo (you will have heard of him), "Cell Phones. Invisible Hazards in the Wireless Age" 2001, (£9.54 from Amazon) do.

Carlo was appointed in 1993 by the US telecoms industry to allay the fears of mobile phone users through scientific research. Carlo is a public health scientist, epidemiologist and lawyer, so no fly-by-night. In June 1999 he stood up in public and instead announced his findings that mobile phones cause cancer and that no-one should hold one to their head. Ever.

Could you wish for a more competent whistle-blower? Recent studies confirming acoustic neuromas from ten years' use only add to what he said. What emerges from the industry in fighting him, is only repeated in our BBC3 programme with T-Mobile etc. This industry will trash the best scientists, hence what they are doing to Trower, Hyland, Johansson even now. And every would-be whistleblower, and every MTHR scientist knows it too.

Eventually, like our Venezuela surgeons, as with those reporting from Hayward's Heath in Sussex, we will all just "know" in the face of industry denial. Will it stop phones being used so much and start masts coming down? Watch your Christmas TV adverts and tell your friends and family not to use mobile phones. Not so easy is it?

PDS-Vorstand unterstützt "Marsch aus den Institutionen"

Auf Vorschlag des Behindertenpolitischen Sprechers der PDS, Ilja Seifert, befasste sich der Parteivorstand mit der aktuellen behindertenpolitischen Situation. Dazu erklärt Ilja Seifert:

Der PDS-Vorstand teilt die Grundeinschätzung der AG "Selbstbestimmte Behindertenpolitik" der PDS, dass die gegenwärtige Politik "Raubbau an Menschen mit Behinderungen" ist. Insbesondere das Gesundheitsmodernisierungsgesetz, die mit dem SGB XII verbundenen Einschnitte beim Taschengeld für Heimbewohner/innen sowie Kürzungs- und Streichungsabsichten beim Blindengeld verschlechtern die Teilhabemöglichkeiten für Menschen mit Behinderungen zusätzlich.

Die PDS bekräftigt, dass endlich wirksame Nachteilsausgleichsregelungen geschaffen werden müssen. Damit könnte dem Gleichheitsgrundsatz Geltung verschafft werden. Auch die - längst überfällige - Verabschiedung eines zivilrechtlichen Antidiskriminierungsgesetzes (ZAG), dass bei Zuwiderhandlungen tatsächlich hilfreich ist, gehört zu den unverzichtbaren nächsten Schritten.

Der von Betroffenen Ende September begonnene lange Marsch aus den Institutionen, mit dem die Ersetzung stationärer (Wohn-)Einrichtungen durch individuellere - ggf. betreute - Wohnformen angestrebt wird, findet ausdrückliche Unterstützung des PDS-Vorstands.

Voter Registrations Possibly Trashed

By George Knapp

KLAS TV, 12 October 2004

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA | Employees of a private voter registration company allege that hundreds, perhaps thousands of voters who may think they are registered will be rudely surprised on election day. The company claims hundreds of registration forms were thrown in the trash.

Anyone who has recently registered or re-registered to vote outside a mall or grocery store or even government building may be affected.

The I-Team has obtained information about an alleged widespread pattern of potential registration fraud aimed at democrats. The focus of the story is a private registration company called Voters Outreach of America, AKA America Votes.

The out-of-state firm has been in Las Vegas for the past few months, registering voters. It employed up to 300 part-time workers and collected hundreds of registrations per day, but former employees of the company say that Voters Outreach of America only wanted Republican registrations.

Two former workers say they personally witnessed company supervisors rip up and trash registration forms signed by Democrats. "We caught her taking Democrats out of my pile, handed them to her assistant and he ripped them up right in front of us. I grabbed some of them out of the garbage and she tells her assisatnt to get those from me," said Eric Russell, former Voters Outreach employee. Eric Russell managed to retrieve a pile of shredded paperwork including signed voter registration forms, all from Democrats. We took them to the Clark County Election Department and confirmed that they had not, in fact, been filed with the county as required by law.

So the people on those forms who think they will be able to vote on Election Day are sadly mistaken. We attempted to speak to Voters Outreach but found that its office has been rented out to someone else.

The landlord says Voters Outreach was evicted for non-payment of rent. Another source said the company has now moved on to Oregon where it is once again registering voters. It's unknown how many registrations may have been tossed out, but another ex-employee told Eyewitness News she had the same suspicions when she worked there.

It's going to take a while to sort all of this out, but the immediate concern for voters is to make sure you really are registered. Call the Clark County Election Department at 455-VOTE or click here to see if you are registered.

The company has been largely, if not entirely funded, by the Republican National Committee. Similar complaints have been received in Reno where the registrar has asked the FBI to investigate.

Bearing Bloody Witness

The essay below written by William Rivers Pitt connects the dots in a way few other articles have done. Few reporters have so well documented and publicized the misleading statements and outright lies leading to the current quagmire in Iraq. Pitt deserves the thanks of our grateful Nation for his stellar efforts to live up to the true standard of exercising his 1st Amendment Rights to freedom of speech and freedom of the press.

Editorial: Men in suits with blood on their hands

SUNDAY , 10 OCTOBER 2004

By SUNDAY STAR-TIMES

So it's official: the Iraq crusade was based on a falsity. Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction, according to the report of the UN weapons inspectors. The leaders of the coalition of the willing, faced with this embarrassing finding, do not even bother to blush. George Bush says Saddam was a bad guy anyway, and we're safer without him. John Howard sees no reason to apologise: but John Howard never apologises for anything. And Tony Blair simply adds more weasel words to the thousands he has already uttered over Iraq. Truth, so the cliche goes, is the first casualty of war, and the war against terror has proved no exception.

New Zealand's decision to stay out of the war is thus vindicated - but being right is not necessarily a political asset. And in this case, being wrong does not seem to be a fatal political liability. There has been a truly global campaign of lies and misinformation over Iraq - and the implications are disturbing. Western voters accept that politicians lie - but this form of dishonesty is unprecedented. The heart of the case against Saddam was WMD. The Bush administration said it "knew" Saddam had them. But it didn't know, any more than Tony Blair "knew" that the Iraqi dictator could launch Armageddon within 45 minutes.

These three leaders took their countries to war on false pretences, and they continue to insist that black is white. Bush says the US is safer now that Saddam has gone. A fair number of US voters appear to believe him - but a fair number still believe, it seems, that Saddam was responsible for September 11. Once again, sober official inquiries seem to have little effect on the debate. When the 9/11 Commission reported it could find no link between Saddam and al Qaeda, Bush continued to insist that there was. He just "knew" it - and here, perhaps, is one of the lessons to be drawn from the whole bloody shambles.

The war against Iraq represents the triumph of conviction over evidence. This is the common factor that unites the "sexing up" of the intelligence data in the US, in Britain and in Australia. The intelligence evidence was thin. Colin Powell's grainy photos, issued just before the war, persuaded nobody except the already persuaded. But what mattered was the deeply held values of Messrs Bush, Blair and Howard. They believed in the war against Saddam: evidence was a secondary consideration. Whether this form of dishonesty is called lying, or excessive fervour, or blindness does not much matter. What matters is the contempt for fact, argument, and thought.

It might be thought that such a comprehensive debunking of the reasons for the crusade would automatically end the careers of the chief crusaders. So why hasn't it happened?

Partly, it seems, because fear crowds out the normal scruples about honesty and accountability. Many Americans feel besieged, and for understandable reasons. Bush has stoked these fears. In such times, many voters turn to the tough-guy leader: how else to account, for example, for the success of the thuggish Ariel Sharon in Israel?

Bush has flouted basic human rights and freedoms in his war against terror - Guantanamo Bay is an international scandal - but his supporters think these are justifiably desperate measures for desperate times. So the scandals continue.

Bush argues that Iraq will somehow, miraculously, turn into a peaceful democracy. The puppet Allawi government continues to insist, in the face of all the evidence, that things in Iraq are improving. In fact, Iraq now suffers a form of civil war. The victims of the slaughter are more often Iraqi than American, but the murder goes on. Nobody but a handful of politicians believes this country could hold a fair and democratic election in just a few months' time. But only the ideologues really believed that democracy could be imposed on this fractured society.

The crusade did not make the world safer. It added fuel to the fire and boosted the terrorist cause. New Zealand has sensibly withdrawn its troops from Iraq. But no country that cares for democracy and decency can avoid the problem of Iraq. Unfortunately, it now looks insoluble. America cannot confer any legitimate authority on Iraq. Even opponents of the war had hoped some form of UN intervention might bring the chance of stability and legitimate government. This now seems impossible: Iraq burns in unquenchable fire. After the crusade, catastrophe.

BUND warnt vor neuem Mobilfunkmast in Nähe der Herzklinik

Hallo zusammen,

in Königstein fängt es an zu brodeln.

Der Hardtbergturm soll angerissen und durch einen neuen höheren Turm ersetzt werden. O2 will Anlagen drauf setzen. Nun ist den Königsteiner Grünen die Idee gekommen, dies zuzulassen und die anderen Betreiber mit draufzulassen, wenn dafür im Gegenzug 2 Anlagen in der City (D1+D2) abgebaut würden.

Evtl. kein schlechter Gedanke, jedoch sehe ich

1. Die relativ hohe Belastung der Menschen der in der Nähe befindlichen Herzklinik.

2. Wenn das Einvernehmen erteilt ist, ist es nicht sicher, ob T-Mobile und Vodafone tatsächlich noch ihre Anlagen verlegen werden. O2 wird das fast egal sein. Die werden sowieso die „Untervermietung“ an die anderen Betreiber im Auge haben. Also warum sollten sie darauf eingehen ?

3. Ob dieses „bedingte“ Einvernehmen überhaupt möglich ist, ist mir nicht klar.

Per Leserbrief ließe sich da noch was „aufgießen“.

Schön wäre ´mal eine Rückmeldung aus Königstein !

Herzlichen Gruß
