George Soros Slams Terror 'War,' Compares White House to Nazis
 
George Soros Slams Terror 'War,' Compares White House to Nazis

(CNSNews.com) - Billionaire philanthropist George Soros compared the Bush administration to socialist and communist regimes Thursday while criticizing America's war on terror.

The liberal political activist said the U.S. strategy of fighting a "war" against terrorism is "false" and a "dismal and disheartening situation." Critics say Soros is only trying to hurt Republicans' chances in the November elections and warn that he is undermining efforts to protect Americans from terrorists.

Soros told an audience at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, "We are working with a very false frame when we talk about a 'war on terror,' and yet it is universally accepted.

"Everybody now recognizes that invasion of Iraq was a real blunder, but the war on terror is still the frame that is accepted by Democrats and Republicans alike," Soros claimed. "It is a false, misleading, counterproductive, destructive frame."

By using the word "war," he argued, the Bush administration is invoking military terminology in response to a situation that, Soros believes, should be dealt with diplomatically. He also said the "war on terror" is "counterproductive," because there are "innocent victims," which "breeds rage and resentments and feeds into the terrorist case."

"It is a war that cannot be won without lots of adverse consequences," he added.

Soros also accused the president of using the war on terror for political gain and compared the Bush White House to the most murderous regimes in human history.

"President Bush is exploiting it even further ahead of these elections," Soros said. "I would voice my concerns about the similarities between this administration and the Nazis and communist regimes."

In 2004, Soros gave more than $23 million to political advocacy groups known as "527s" to defeat Bush, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Matthew Vadum, an analyst with Capital Research Center, said Soros has apparently decided to try a different strategy to influence the upcoming midterm elections.

"Instead of vigorously contesting the election this November," Vadum told Cybercast News Service, "George Soros has apparently opted to attack President Bush and the Republican Party by undermining America's war on terror."

Vadum urged Americans to examine the claims Soros is making from another perspective.

"Soros argues that it is a phony war, an empty advertising slogan that Bush is using to pull the wool over gullible Americans' eyes," Vadum said. "But U.S. soldiers fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan who put their lives on the line every day beg to differ."

So, the Globalist lackey Soros is criticising Bush and his Bolshevik 5th Columnist stooge show?

I guess the Left can step in as saviours now and the U.N can take over after the U.S economic collapse.

SEC- Why do you NEVER debate but only post continuously? It's virtual trolling in my eyes.

George Soros Blames Jews for Anti-Semitism

Do we have to listen when the billionaire speaks?

George Soros Addresses a Jewish Audience

George Soros, a Hungarian-born Jew who escaped the Holocaust by fleeing to London as a child, is ranked the 28th richest person in the United States (with a fortune valued at $7 billion) by Forbes magazine.

In November 2003, for the first time ever, the billionaire spoke to a Jewish audience at the conference of the Jewish Funders Network. Many people were dismayed by his call for “regime change” in the United States, his talk of funding projects in “Palestine" and the Geneva Accord, and his ideas about the cause of anti-Semitism.

Soros said European anti-Semitism is the result of the policies of Israel and the United States. “There is a resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe. The policies of the Bush administration and the Sharon administration contribute to that,” Soros said. “If we change that direction, then anti-Semitism also will diminish,” he said. “I can’t see how one could confront it directly.”

Soros also said that he has personally contributed to anti-Semitism. Soros believes that Malaysian prime minister, Mahathir Mohammad, was referring to people like Soros when he said, “Jews rule the world by proxy.” Soros' projects and funding have influenced governments and promoted various political causes around the world.

Soros' comments were called “absolutely obscene" by Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League.

“Let’s understand things clearly: Anti-Semitism is not caused by Jews; it’s caused by anti-Semites,” said Elan Steinberg, senior advisor at the World Jewish Congress. “One can certainly be critical of Bush policy or Sharon policy, but any deviation from the understanding of the real cause of anti-Semitism is not merely a disservice, but a historic lie.”

In addition to his unhelpful ideas, Soros has given scant money to Jewish causes. Soros said he has not given much to Jewish or Israel-related causes because Jews take care of their own, so that his financial clout is better directed elsewhere.

Actually I'm more guilty of doing that than he is, and I have to admit his stuff is better than mine, the idea of a forum is not just to give your view, its also a place to gather knowledge from different sources and put that in the middle of others conciousness, whether we gain from it is happenstance, but if it is keeping us up to date with the days strange activities it does its job, if I find an interresting article, I'll post it.
Although lately I've been doing more in lounge than in the serious boards, it doesn't mean that it isn't needed, I want to see the return of many posters that have left CC that contributed to this site over and over again in the past, I can't name them, because I would no doubt forget someone that should be mentioned, but they probably left because of the so much infighting mentality that this site has become. I hope those of you that had posted in the past, who decided this site got fucked up, but still read the post, come back with your opinions.
If you come across a good article, I want you to post it, or atleast give me the link, I don't need to read it on this site, I am able to click on exterior links. :-D
