Alternative news - the Nuclear Train

Here is more news from the big bad world, rarely or never making it to established channels.

We could also have used «Nuclear Convoy» or «Nuclear Ship» in the headline. Radioactive fuel and waste are crossing the globe.

The nuclear train travels at night, in the darkness, away from people’s blind eyes. It has done so for many years, while most people have looked away. The insanity has been allowed to continue without major interruptions.

There was a temporary stop when the German «red/green» administration took over the government a few years back, but both the coalition partners have long since exposed their true face. Die Grunen’s flirting with power was doomed from the start. They’re flirting no more. Their matrimony with the social democrats (and power) was without possibility for parole, the way the skeptics to this union predicted all the time. Nuclear power is merely one field where they have failed miserably.

The train runs within Germany. Between Germany and France. And it’s creating endless protests, demonstrations that at least are able to delay the transports and harm the forces behind the transports economically. It isn’t sufficient, but it is what it is. The grim reality demands far more of them and us, though. But those delaying the transport are still doing a great job. And various media, across the planet, report rarely or never or hopelessly inadequately about all this, this intense war against one of the most lethal among lethal enterprises on the globe.

The nuclear trains go day and night, on the roads, on railroads and by ship, and this is, as with many things, usually not reported, silenced to death, by cowardly journalists and reporters. We’re always returning to this fourth, supporting estate. Everything important is silenced to death or crucial, rebellious actions ridiculed and distorted to the point of them being impossible to recognize.

So the nuclear trains continue to run. From the port of Valognes in France to Gorleben in Germany. Protests, blockades and downright sabotage have periodically stopped the transports completely or partly. The Castor transports can only be completed aided by extensive police protection. Germany’s «red/green» and France’s blue government spare no expenses or effort to make sure the nuclear train runs, to assure the move of the worst poison humanity has ever had in its possession. A poison spreading slowly across the globe, from nuclear power plants, from various waste disposals, from hospitals, from military storage and other places besides. This is more systematic insanity. And it gives birth to violent and intense protests, protests we rarely hear about. People die for their ideals, true ideals, in the protest gatherings, and we don’t hear about it. We hear a lot of hogwash, but not the things we most of all need to hear, the proof that people are finally fed up. There are people out there fighting, people that have realized what an insane society we live in. But when these brave souls are mentioned in various established media they’re usually described as «professional protesters», «terrorists» or even «worse». What the fuck is wrong with the world?

All the world’s «nuclear trains» keep running, while life on Earth is slipping through our fingers.

I’m quite frankly sick of witnessing every time established media beat themselves on the chest, congratulating themselves on a job well done, on their «exposures», on being truth seeking and sharp of mind. It’s a joke, and nothing more, and not even a very funny one at that. I’m also getting nauseas every time the press is «criticizing» itself. It’s ridiculous, plain and simple, and as honest as horse-trading. It does sound quite convincing, of course. It always does, to the herd, to people that have eradicated all critical thinking in themselves many years ago.

You’ve just heard a small part of all the important news rolling in from all over the world.

In a time with ever more acts done to confuse and befuddle our minds, there are ever more essential reasons to tell the truth.

The truth will liberate us, not merely from the lies, but from a completely distorted and fucked-up world.

The nuclear train continues its run through the night…

In this place we write about what’s happening in relative secret, while people sleep.

One of many problems with modern day people is that most of them aren’t used to having their perception of reality challenged. They’ve gotten away with that, with that, too, for far too long.

2005-10-07 addendum:

The IAEA - The International Atomic Energy Agency was given the Nobel Peace Price today. The Nobel Peace Price Committee has actually made a few, very few brave and right choices through the years. The prices to Albert John Lutuli, Martin Luther King and Desmond Tutu spring to mind.

This is not one of those times.

There are two main reasons for this.

The first is that IAEA has become a tool for the current aggressive United States policy on perceived enemies.

The second is that IAEA at its core is working «for peaceful use of nuclear power». In other words, they are propagating the use of one of the most dangerous substances on the planet.

My thoughts exactly.

This plays right into the hands of the US (and Norwegian) warmongers. There will be an attack on Iran pretty soon, and in it the will to confront China and Russia will be a part of the bargain.

Good times will *not* be had by all.
