"Fascism should rightly be called Corporatism as it is a merge of state and corporate power." -- Benito Mussolini

Picasso's "Guernica"

"Why of course the people don't want war ... But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ...Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger." --Hermann Goering, Nazi leader, at the Nuremberg Trials after World War II

"As we speak, I have a terrible sense of foreboding, because last weekend a stunning omen occurred in this country. Anyone who thinks symbolically had to be shocked by the explosion of the Columbia shuttle, disintegrating in the air and strewing its parts and human remains over Texas -- the president's home state! So many times in antiquity, the emperors of Persia or other proud empires went to the oracles to ask for advice about going to war. Roman generals summoned soothsayers to read the entrails before a battle. If there was ever a sign for a president and his administration to rethink what they're doing, this was it. I mean, no sooner had Bush announced that the war was "weeks, not months" away and gone off for a peaceful weekend at Camp David than this catastrophe occurred in the skies over Texas.

In the Old Days, Bush Probably Drank Wild Turkey. Now That's He's Dry, He's Mad Because It Won't Go To War

CNN "Turkish officials gave mixed signals Monday on whether the nation’s parliament will reconsider its stunning rejection of allowing U.S. troops to deploy inside the country. But even if lawmakers are asked to vote again, local media and diplomats suggested it won’t take place for a couple of weeks, forcing Pentagon planners to rethink a strategy that calls for attacks against Iraq from two fronts.

"THE UNEXPECTED rejection Saturday night caused the nation’s stock market to plunge 12 percent on Monday as investors feared the loss of a multibillion-dollar aid package from the United States. Washington was so sure that it would gain Turkey’s support that cargo ships carrying U.S. armor are waiting off the Turkish shore and hundreds of jeeps and trucks have already been unloaded in southern Turkey. Prime Minister Abdullah Gul on Monday refused to say whether the motion would be resubmitted to parliament. “We are analyzing the situation and we will see what happens in the next few days,” Gul said in a news conference."

Turkey/Bush In Bi-wheel

Bush can't have a happy relationship with a country whose a) Pluto conjuncts Bush and the USA's Sun; b) squares Bush's Moon; and c) squares the USA's Saturn.

Bush's Saturn at 26 Cancer squares Turkey's Libra based Mercury-Saturn conjunction disposited by its secretive Venus in covert Scorpio. Bush's Mercury (talk) Pluto (about annihilation) conjunction in Leo squares Turkey's Venus. Bush's Saturn in trine to turkey's big money Jupiter, a "structured aid package," wasn't enough to offset what the Turks believe to be a "marriage made in hell" (Turkey's Pluto square Bush's Juno).

Bush's Mars at 9 Virgo conjoins Turkey's North Node and opposes its explosive Uranus. Bush's Mars on the North Node reveals that the fate of the Iraq war's success hinges upon Turkey's decision. Without their agreement to allow the U.S. military to use its borders as a staging area, the Iraq war, according to MSNBC's military analysts, could last two months longer.

The "No" vote by Turkey's parliament came the day before March 2, 2003's New Moon at 12 Pisces. The New Moon conjoined Turkey's Uranus, the planet we equate with sudden and surprising turns. Bush's warring Mars in nodal degree (in opposition to this New Moon-Uranus alignment) was a guarantee that Turkey's people (Moon) would resist mightily.

New Moon Jupiter in the 10th house of the chart conjoins Bush's Mercury-Pluto conjunction in Leo. If Jupiter exaggerates, then the bloviations and Plutonic arm-twisting that Bush is known for won't go unnoticed by the Turks or the rest of the world. Tracking the Moon through the sign Pisces at the New Moon's commencement finds the lady in square to transiting Pluto, Saturn and Mars. Luna, just reborn in the gentle, universal sign of the fish must navigate dark, brackish waters populated by predators of the deep. Today's Mars in sextile to Uranus just prior to the Moon's square to Mars plants the seed for explosive anxiety and repercussions before news of the total consequences makes it to the headlines: Mercury will conjunct transiting Uranus, the USA's Progressed Sun, her natal Moon and her Solar Arc Mercury on March 4, 2003. We are likely to be shocked and perhaps appalled at the news, as the aforementioned conjunctions take place in the USA's 3rd house associated with the press.

Mars is set to enter Capricorn on March 4 and will reach Turkey's 7th cusp by March 16, 2003. Transiting Mars will oppose its natal Pluto, Bush and the USA's Sun and square the USA's Saturn and Bush's natal Moon. This does not augur well for Turkey's continued relationship with the United States and vice versa. Turkey is balancing its own safety and the will of its people against huge bribery dollars the Bush administration is offering it. Basically, what Bush is saying is, "We know what you are, now we just have to agree on the price." It would appear that the Turks have more on their minds than international street-walking.

Transiting Saturn is now in direct motion releasing its strait jacket restraints on the USA's schizophrenic Mars in dire need of medication. Bush's natal and progressed Uranus, a quart low on Thorazine, presses ever more strongly on the Geminian Mars. Saturn's forward move is akin to the psych-tech who can't stand it anymore. Slowly the syringe drops as it becomes more apparent that Mars in square to the USA's drug-induced dream of world power cannot be restrained.

Transiting Pluto is in conjunction to Bush's South Node at 20 Sagittarius, taking on a nodal hit from Turkey's natal Neptune at 20 Leo. Since the aforementioned are in the same degree, we call this contact "Nodal degree," making the trine aspect ever so much more powerful. Turkey's Scorpio Sun reveals that it is smart enough to reserve something up its sleeve and that it is hungry for more via its Taurean complement (polar opposite sign). It's Venus and Jupiter in Scorpio were opposed by 2000's Jupiter-Saturn conjunction at 22 Taurus, a powerful seed moment drawing her straight into "the New World Order" foreseen by the Bush administration's addiction to world hegemony and control of fossil fuel.

This next week will be telling because the final word on a second vote by Turkey's parliament hasn't yet been spoken.

Adjustments to military strategy without Turkey's cooperation take this unjust war into the realm of "nodal" or fated consequences. The twists and turns along the road of destiny were pointed out by the likes of the brilliant Sophocles and Aeschylus and Euripedes, writers of the great Greek tragedies. Character is destiny, and America's character is modeled by each president. This one wasn't elected. We've got a rogue president running a now rogue super power.

Oedipus has already plucked out his eyes and now the whole world has gone blind.

Kuwait May Take U.S. Troops After Turk Refusal
Mon March 3, 2003 11:59 AM ET
KUWAIT (Reuters) - Kuwait said on Monday it would accept hosting U.S. troops who had been intended to be deployed in Turkey after the Turkish parliament refused to allow them into the country, the Kuwaiti defense minister said.

"If they (United States) present a formal request we are willing," Defense Minister Sheikh Jaber al-Hamad al-Sabah told reporters.

Kuwait already hosts tens of thousands of U.S. forces training in the Gulf Arab state for a possible attack on neighboring Iraq.

  • February 11 through 16, 2003, hard aspects which include Moon-Mars; Moon-Pluto; Moon-Saturn. It is the Moon that gets hurt, as witnessed in charts for the Columbia crash and Challenger. February 16's Full Moon: Mars conjunct Pluto adn Moon opposite Uranus. followed on the 18th by Moon square Pluto; Moon square Mars; Moon square Saturn. Sun enters Pisces and hits the Uranus-to-Pisces point of March 10, 2003.

  • February 15, 2003, Worldwide Antiwar protests. Tony Blair in Glasgow, Scotland to speak at Labor Party's Spring Conference.

  • February 16, 2003, Full Moon at 27 Aquarius/27 Leo -- "King of the One World Government." Aquarius Sun conjunct Revolutionary "Off With Their Heads" Uranus; Sun-Uranus opposite Common People Moon. "I have the right to do what I want when I want" Jupiter Retrograde at 11 Leo is in exact opposition to "confuse them" Neptune.

    Note: From February 16 to March 2. Full moon wanes to dark (new Moon). Expect Bush to launch pre-emptive strike on Iraq about this time. Other estimates take us to a mid-March attack, but March 18, 2003 is a Full Moon at 27 Virgo/Pisces. Military advantage rests upon an increased number of days to attack while the Moon is dark. Therefore, I think that Bush gives the order earlier rather than later.

  • Jupiter-Neptune, of extreme politico-religious fundamentalism falls across G.W. Bush's 1/7 house axis. Saturn, "the chief executive/executive decisions," at 22 Gemini (talks out of both sides of his mouth) is retrograde and opposite "by any means necessary" Pluto which conjoins bloody, warmongering Mars at 19 Sagittarius. Pluto and Mars conjoin G.W. Bush Inauguration Moon at 19 Sagittarius in the 8th house of death and destruction in that chart, and both square progressed Inauguration Venus of diplomacy at 19 degrees of sacrificial Pisces.

  • March 2, 2003: New Moon at 12 Pisces.

  • March 4, 2003, Mercury conjunct Uranus at 29 Aquarius, 4:10:03 pm, EST, Washington, DC. Sun 13 Pisces square G.W. Bush Inauguration 8th house Pluto at 14 Sagittarius.

  • March 10, 2003, Uranus enters Pisces and remains in mutual reception with Neptune until 2011. This marks the 84 year return of Uranus to the position it held when the Nazi Party was officially formed in Munich, Germany.

    February 24, 1920, 7:20 PM, CET -1:00, Munich, Germany, 28N08, 011E34, Ascendant, 24 Virgo. Urnuas 01 Pisces 51. Neptune 09 Leo.

    Uranus in Pisces:

    1668-1676, in mutual reception with Neptune in Aquarius
    1752-1760, Neptune in Leo
    1835-1844, Mutual reception with Neptune in Aquarius

    1919-1928, Neptune in Leo. This is the Neptune position for Mussolini's Founding of Fascism in Italy, March 23, 1919, 12:00 pm (no time known) Rome, Italy. Neptune was on the USA's North Node in its 8th house. WW I saw the use of Mustard Gas by the Germans as a chemical weapon. It marks the advent of prohibition, bathtub gin, the roaring 20's, and women getting the right to vote, and the formation of the Nazi Party.

    By 1933, after the burning of the Reichstag, The Third Reich was formed: Jan 30, 1933, 11:15 AM CET-1:00, Berlin, Germany, 52N30, 013E22, Ascendant, 25 Taurus. [Uranus at 19 Aries]. "Inflatus:" South Node, Neptune, Mars and Jupiter all conjunct in "Purity of the Vision of the Master Race = Virgo." Mercury, ruler of the Virgo stellium, is in Aquarius conjoined to scientific Saturn (horrible medical experiments) and "New World Order" Sun.

    Daddy Bush used the term "New World Order" during his presidency. He got it from Hitler, who was the first to use the term. Daddy Bush was also secretly involved in eugenics in the United States -- the forced sterilzation of countless people of color in North and South Carolina and in the State of Oregon. This is what the organization, "Planned Parenthood," was originally created as the "front" for.

    BTW, IBM created the computer database of every name of every jew in Germany for Hitler. Bayer Aspirin helped I.G. Farben make the gas cannisters for the concentration camp showers. That's the soul of American capitalism for you! Helping bidness worldwide!

  • June 10, 2003, Saturn to Cancer

  • June 20, 2003, Saturn in Cancer trine Uranus in Pisces, exact on June 24, 2003. Saturn and Uranus trine again on April 4, 2004, but the closest the trine gets is within a 1 degree 52 minute orb.

  • August 27, 2003, Jupiter to Virgo for a 12 month stay.
