The original turncoat, Benedict Arnold spied on colonial forces for the British during the Revolutionary War. While a general in the Continental Army, Arnold was heralded for military successes like the capture of Fort Ticonderoga. However, in 1779, having been passed over for promotion and in debt, he switched sides.
The Line Taken In 2002 - 2003 By Australian Nationalists On Iraq: Will It Now Be Betrayed By The Mainstreamers? Source
The following statement was widely circulated in Australian patriotic circles in 2002-3. It was a statement of conviction which helped to shift Australian patriotic opinion towards opposition to New World Order war and a balanced and pro Australian position on the warfare between the Washington regime and radical Islam. This position is now under challenge by the mainstreamers who would take the anti Islamic line and side with the NWO regime internationally and inevitably - with the likes of the Liberal Party 'Right' and the Christian Democrats internally. This dangerous development threatens to undermine the independence of nationalist politics and turn us into a satellite of the Establishment.
Patriotic No War Against Iraq Committee Statement.
We, the undersigned, oppose the participation of Australian troops and the expending of national resources in a war against Iraq.
We say that the drive to war against Iraq has nothing to do with the interest of the Australian nation, but everything to do with the interests of the oil multinationals and the Zionist entity called Israel.
We demand the neutrality of Australia towards Iraq, the continuation of the beneficial trade with Iraq and a repudiation of all New World Order schemes directed against Iraq.
Some people confuse Islamic fundamentalism and its contention with liberal ideology with the justification for a war against Iraq. Because we are opposed both to Islamic fundamentalism and Western liberalism, we say: Neither Washington, Nor Mecca, but Independence For Australia. Yet, Iraq is not an Islamic fundamentalist state, nor does it support terrorism.
The Iraqi and Australian peoples are not enemies even if the New World Order proclaims it so.
No to the New World Order war scheme against Iraq!
