1. U.S. Bucks NATO's Oil Embargo on Serbia

LONDON, Apr. 29 - If you had any doubts that the New World Order is driven by the "perpetual commerce through perpetual war" motto, here is an Apr. 27 story in the London Telegraph which ought to dispel them.

The day after the NATO 50th anniversary summit in Washington, at which the alliance agreed to slap an oil embargo on Yugoslavia, the European Union banned oil sales to Yugoslavia. But in a development that will be regarded as scandalous in European capitals, the American government confirmed that it had no plans to follow suit, the Telegraph reported from Luxembourg.

This means that while it is now illegal for any EU country to export oil to Slobodan Milosevic, it remains perfectly legal for American companies to continue to fuel the Serb war machine.

A U.S. State Department official confirmed to the Telegraph that there were no plans to introduce the same sort of legislation that EU foreign ministers yesterday adopted in Luxembourg, which renders it a crime to sell oil to Yugoslavia. The EU embargo will be implemented on Friday.

TiM Ed.: Guess the European vassals of the New World Order aren't getting it. They obviously assumed that their excessive servitude would be appreciated in Washington. Little did they know that the Clinton is milking this war for all its worth, on behalf of his masters, the U.S. based multinational companies, the main beneficiaries of NATO's attack on Serbia.

2. NATO Train Struck by Greek Unions

THESSALONIKI, Apr. 29 - A NATO train was prevented from leaving the Thessaloniki station by the railway workers Wednesday, a TiM correspondent from this Greek northern port city reports today. The 22 railroad cars were reportedly loaded with military equipment of the North Atlantic alliance.

The General Secretary of the Greek Railway Workers Association, Mr. Sakis Eleftheriou, declared: "We will not let the train through. We cannot betray the Serbian people. What we're doing is what we can in a common effort."

---

TiM Ed.: So much for NATO unity, that we keep hearing about ad nauseum from Washington and Brussels.

3. Stop This Illegal War Now!

SYDNEY, Apr. 28 - Antonia Fetz, an Australian TiM reader from New South Wales, sent us the following letter, which was actually directed at the Serb people:

"My heartiest congratulations to the people of Yugoslavia for having resisted over a month of "NATO's" - ie the US's - cowardly attacks. It is an incredible achievement. The free world is amazed and heartened.

Your enemies only bomb from three miles high - and at night. What cowards they are. No wonder their leaders are afraid to commit ground troops: some American mother's sons might get killed!

Might? They most certainly will get killed if they eventually fight on the ground against the Serbs who have nothing to lose but their country. The USA boys, despite all the propaganda, will not have the motivation that the Serbs do and so they will die as they did in Vietnam. Uselessly.

Public opinion will eventually force political change. So why not lean heavy on your local member to change policy now? Why wait till the body bags start arriving? Stop this illegal war now!"

Antonia Fetz

TiM Ed.: Asked by TiM's editor if she wanted to have the letter published and fully attributed, Mrs. Fetz replied: "Of course you may use it. And I'd be proud to have it attributed."

5. Test your NWO I.Q. (by Daniel New)

IREDELL, TX - Readers of the internationalist magazine, Foreign Affairs, read this statement by Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., a few issues back:

"In the United States, neo-isolationism promises to prevent the most powerful nation on the planet from playing any role in enforcing the peace system. If we refuse a role, we cannot expect smaller, weaker, and poorer nations to ensure world order for us."

Okay, we all know that "Isolationism is bad," that America must carry the banner for solving all the world’s problems. To do less is to be a selfish Isolationist. So here’s an easy way to find out if you are part of the problem. Take this simple test to find your "Internationalist Quotient." (And I’ll do for you what my teachers never did for me: Give yourself 10 points as an Isolationist for every False and 10 points as an Internationalist for every True.) (If you live in different country, just substitute that country's name.)

___ I feel nothing deep inside when Old Glory passes in a parade.

___ I believe "the American Way" is no better or worse than other countries.

___ If I (or my child) join the military, I would support their having to fight (and maybe die) in a war where no American interest is involved.

___ I think America really ought to become the policeman to the world.

___ It’s fine with me if American soldiers are placed under the command of foreign officers who take an oath to serve the UN exclusively;

___ If it takes a draft to supply men and women to the UN military, I’ll support it.

___ American Independence is really kind of an out-dated idea – nations should let the UN settle all disputes and put an end to all wars;

___ Every country ought to have a voice in the UN equal to America, even if they only have the population of New Hampshire and the economy of Arkansas;

___ If there’s a conflict between a UN treaty and the US Constitution, then the UN treaty should prevail.

___ I think the "Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag" should be replaced in our schools with a "Pledge to the Planet."

Okay, now you know the score. You know if you’re in tune with the policy of the US government to reduce American sovereignty, and to implement a One World Government. If you answered five or more "F’s" on this test, now you know that you’re the problem, as the government sees it, and until you (or your children) are re-educated, we’ll never have the New World Order promised us by George Bush, and worked for by Bill Clinton.

If you’re not willing for your children to be forced under the command of foreign officers, and if you’re not willing for them to die in a country you never heard of, "in the service of the United Nations," as Al Gore put it, then you just won’t make in the "Brave New World" of the next Millennium.

In that Foreign Affairs article mentioned at the top, Schlesinger went on to say,

"We are not going to achieve a new world order without paying for it in blood as well as in words and money."

Whose blood do you think he was talking about?

Daniel D. New, a fourth generation Texan, lives in Hamilton County, Texas, from whence he lectures, writes and stays in touch with what the United Nations is doing. He just published his first book, MICHAEL NEW – Mercenary…or American Soldier?, now going into it's second edition. His son, Michael, was the first American soldier to ever be court-martialed for wanting to serve his country in its own uniform. The case is still under appeal.
