DVD 3734 Describes the role of a select group of Navajo Marines who developed a code based on their own native language that provided a means for secure communications among American forces in the Pacific during World War II. c1998. 43 min. Some colonies were formed because people wanted to escape religious persecution in Europe. Secretary of State) talks in Geneva; Iraq agreed the next day, and the talks on January 9th failed.� The bombs began falling on January 16.� On February 7, Iraq proposed a peace plan; there was no response from West.� On February 15th, Iraq said it was willing to withdraw from Kuwait, the Soviet foreign minister welcomed the offer; Bush called it a “cruel hoax.”� On February 18, Gorbachev proposed a peace plan; Bush rejected it on February 22.� On February 25, the Soviet Union proposed a peace plan, and Saddam ordered the withdrawal from Kuwait; Bush rejected the Soviet peace plan.� On February 28, Bush ordered a cease-fire, whose terms Iraq immediately accepted.� President Bush was an impressive negotiator. [280] See Seeing Through the Media: Persian Gulf War, edited by Susan Jeffords and Lauren Rabinovitz.� It dissects the media's performance during the Gulf War quite well.� See also Noam Chomsky's Deterring Democracy. pp. 179-214. [281] See John Stauber and Sheldon Rampton's Toxic Sludge is Good for You!, pp. 172-174.� See also Susan Jeffords and Lauren Rabinovitz, eds., Seeing Through the Media, pp. 12-13.� See also The National Insecurity Council, It's a Conspiracy!, pp. 115-116. [282] For a good summary of how the USA bribed and blackmailed its way to forming the coalition, see Phyllis Bennis's "Bush's Tool and Victim", Covert Information Bulletin, Summer 1991, pp. 26-30.� Bennis aptly described what America fabricated as the "Cash Register Coalition."� See Geoff Simons’s Iraq: From Sumer to Saddam, pp. 319-325.� Yemen and Cuba were the only two nations that could not be bribed or blackmailed into supporting (or abstaining from voting against) the UN Resolution 678, which supposedly authorized the USA to use force.� After Yemen voted against the resolution, an American diplomat told the Yemen ambassador, “That was the most expensive ‘no’ vote you ever cast.”� The subsequent American vengeance on Yemen, one of the world’s poorest nations, cost Yemen about $1 billion.� When an American warship was bombed off the Yemen coast in late 2000, I never saw one American media account that even suggested a connection between the American vengeance on Yemen and the “terrorist” attack on an American warship off Yemen’s coast.� Osama bin Laden was Yemeni.� [283] Unfortunately, the standard (American and British) histories of those events are covered less than adequately, such as Encyclopedia Britannica's version of that history.� Nowhere is mentioned the cloak and dagger skullduggery by the CIA and British Intelligence that boosted the Shah into his position.� Without their assistance, the Shah's coup would not have happened.� Microsoft Encarta (1996 edition) did not mention that connection either.� The accounts mention the anti-American fervor that led to the 1979 "hostage crisis," but were largely silent on why they might have felt that way.� Even a thoroughly establishment account of those events such as Daniel Yergin's The Prize (see pages 450-478) mentioned the CIA and British Intelligence involvement, but downplayed their importance.� Yergin gave the "Soviet menace" fable plenty of ink as a rationale for what the USA did to Iran.� For an antidote to those histories, try William Blum's Killing Hope, pp. 64-72, or try Wall Street Journal reporter Jonathan Kwitny's Endless Enemies, pp. 152-178.� See also Phil Agee's On the Run, pp. 313-318.� The recent All the Shah’s Men by Stephen Kinzer, who also co-authored Bitter Fruit, about the 1954 overthrow of Guatemala’s government, is a major contribution regarding what the USA did to Iran.� [284] See William Blum’s Killing Hope, pp. 242-244. [285] See William Blum’s Killing Hope, p. 244. [286] On August 17, 2002, just after the first the first draft of this essay was complete, an article appeared in America’s media that proved what Chomsky and others had been saying for 15 years: as Saddam Hussein’s forces warred against Iraq’s Kurds and used chemical weapons on them, the USA supported Iraq with intelligence to fight Iran, and Iraq’s use of chemical weapons was a trifling issue to the Reagan administration; ironically, George Bush the First was heavily involved in that operation, being the ex-CIA director that he was.� As long as they were fighting the hated Iran, there was nothing that Iraq could do to raise the USA's eyebrows too much.� It made the “chemical weapons” rhetoric of the Clinton and Bush the Second administrations, as they justified the economic war against Iraq, ring rather hollow.� See the Seattle Times, August 18, 2002, “Officers say U.
