2005 in Review: A World at War


A Summary of World War Events in 2005

While there are many newsworthy events of 2005, reviewed below are only those relevant to the Planned World War 3. 

At first reading, this is a pretty depressing view of a world sliding down a slippery slope, particularly if we extrapolate past events into the future.  2006 may turn out to be an extremely depressing year.

But there is no reason to be concerned, depressed, anxious or  disheartened IF your mindset is right for 2006.  Fortunately, there is a new book which will help address the necessary change of mindset.  Read details.

How to Read The 2005 Review

The news items reported below are all categorized into one of the 6 main trends that should be followed in the unfolding plan to introduce the Planned World War 3.  If you are not familiar with these trends, please read this article first - it will help you understand the bigger picture of this 2005 review.

At the end of each headline, in brackets, is the relevant trend which the news article refers to.

Every link to the related news item will open in a separate window, allowing you to return to the review once the relevant details have been checked for accuracy.

A significant exclusion from these reports are the numerous reports from Iraq throughout the year indicating that Coalition Forces came no closer to defeating the insurgency.  See Iraq Is Similar to Vietnam if this topic interests you.

2005 in Review

Highlights (in light of WW3)


Governor of Baghdad, Ali Al-Haidri, Assassinated (Middle East)
January 4
: The governor of the Baghdad region, known for cooperating closely with American troops, was assassinated along with six bodyguards as he drove to work.  Abu Musab al-Zarqawi claimed responsibility for the assassination, which came amid mounting violence in Iraq in the run-up to landmark elections.  See chinadaily and

Bill Clinton Endorsed to Replace Kofi Annan as U.N. Secretary General (Global Government)
January 5
: For months prior to the Asian Tsunami, Annan was an embattled man, frequently criticized for his lack of leadership skills.  Bill O'Reilly, host of the highest-rated program on No. 1 Fox News Channel, endorsed Bill Clinton to replace Kofi Annan as secretary-general of the United Nations. While ripping Annan's tenure as leader of the U.N. in an interview with Richard Holbrooke, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, O'Reilly was asked by the guest what he would like to see happen. 'I'd like to see Annan out of there', he said. 'I'd like to see Bill Clinton take the job. The world loves him. He'd do a good job. It would be good for the United States. Hillary would love it'". See worldnetdailyClinton Named as Tsunami Reconstruction Supremo and Bill named UN envoy: Is secretary gen. job next?  Also: Bill Clinton Hailed to Become 'Something Like a President of the World'

Also on January 5, Washington prepares an international network of permanent detention camps (Global Government)
In a move similar to absolute dictatorships of Russia's Josef Stalin and Germany's Adolf Hitler, the Pentagon and the CIA plan to imprison people for the rest of their lives, even though the government does not have enough evidence to convict them in court.   See, capitolhillblue and

Another Suspicious Death in the List of Dead Scientists and Microbiologists (Population Reduction)
Jeong H. Im, age 72, was stabbed several times and his body was found in the trunk of his burning white, 1995 Honda inside a Maryland Avenue parking garage.  His expertise: A retired research assistant professor at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Primarily a protein chemist. For  further details of the growing list of dead scientists see

Torture Declared Official Policy of Bush Administration (Global Government)
January 15
: After receiving tremendous criticism for its out-of-control torture of prisoners not convicted of any offense, Tom Ridge, Homeland Security Chief, informed the world that torture is, indeed, Bush Administration official policy.  See

President Bush Inaugurated for Second Term (Global Government)
January 20
: The critically important message that the President gave the world was that his second administration was going to proceed full speed ahead to achieve the historic objective envisioned by America's Founding Fathers.  "When our Founders declared a new order of the ages...they were acting on an ancient hope that is meant to be fulfilled." - President G.W. Bush.  He used the term "freedom" a total of 27 times in his short speech. However, his speech was not well received in foreign lands, including some of the US allies, and it was positively rejected as completely hypocritical by any discerning citizen.  See  In addition, this was the 55th US Presidential Inaugural, the parade route was 555 feet long, and Bush faced the 55 feet tall Washington Monument (obelisk).  Remember that the invasion of Iraq on March 20, 2003 was exactly 555 days after September 11, 2001.  Interesting repetition of '5', which is the number for Death in the occult.  These numbers -- all multiples of '11' -- are designed to communicate information to those-in-the-know while hiding the significance from the masses.  After the Inauguration speech, George and Laura flashed the Texas Longhorn's "Hook-em-Horns" symbol, which is almost identical to the devil's sign of Il Cornunto.  See image.  "President Bush's salute got lost in translation in Norway, where shocked people interpreted his hand gesture during his inauguration as a salute to Satan. That's what it means in the Nordics when you throw up the right hand with the index and pinky fingers raised, a gesture popular among heavy metal groups and their fans in the region." -- ABC News, January 21, 2005

Bush Requests an Additional $80b for Iraq (Collapse of US$)
January 25
: The request pushes the total provided to the Defense Department to more than $280 billion.  See CNN.

Iraq Elections (Middle East)
January 30
: "... contrary to what breathless media reporters in Iraq have been portraying to the world, current Iraqi elections are sheer hypocrisy that may lead to the country’s disintegration. But the Iraqis will realize later the game plan behind these elections. Who are these elections really for? The Iraqi people or the Bush Administration's PR machine? What are the real intentions behind these elections? The unification or the disintegration Iraq?" -- "Iraq Elections: Democracy or Hypocrisy", by Dr. Minhaj Qidwai, The Palestine Chronicle, 3 February 2005.  See A train wreck of an election.

CIA Changes Tune on Iraq WMD (Middle East)
February 2
: "The CIA is publishing a series of classified reports revising its pre-war intelligence assessments of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, an intelligence official says. A January 18 report, titled 'Iraq: No Large-Scale Chemical Warfare Efforts Since Early 1990s', concludes that Saddam Hussein abandoned major chemical weapons programs after the first Gulf War in 1991 ... forthcoming reports are expected to revise pre-war estimates of Iraq's biological and nuclear capabilities."  See apfn.

Gonzales Confirmed as Attorney General (Global Government)
February 4
: The torture and sexual humiliation at Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib and in other prisons in Afghanistan and Iraq directly flowed from Gonzales' "advice and counsel" to President Bush. The same Gonzales now controls law enforcement against American citizens.  See foxnews and cuttingedge.

North Korea Announces Nuclear Weapons (Far East)
February 10
: Since the US invasion of Iraq, North Korea has maintained that, had Saddam really possessed nuclear weapons, America would never have attacked.  Bush did not launch the attack on Iraq until after the UN weapons inspectors had conclusively proven that no WMD existed.  Therefore, North Korea has always maintained that the only way to forestall an American attack is to develop and deploy her own nuclear weapons.  This announcement from North Korea says that "We ... have manufactured nukes for self-defense to cope with the Bush administration's ever more undisguised policy to isolate and stifle the (North)".  However, North Korea has possessed nuclear weapons since at least 2002.  This statement simply confirms the role North Korea is to play in the coming planned World War 3.  "A hair-raising nuclear confrontation in Korea may, towards the end of the period, threaten man's very survival." [Peter Lemesurier, "The Armageddon Script", p. 223]

Israeli Evacuation Timetable Shortened (Israel)
February 25
: "Israeli Defence Minister Shaul Mofaz has ordered defence officials to drastically cut the timetable for withdrawing from the Gaza Strip and the northern West Bank this summer in an effort to hinder Jewish extremists bent on disrupting the pullout ... Military officials were worried that opponents of the pullout might use to force to resist evacuation. Mofaz told defence officials Thursday night that the planned eight-week evacuation would give the plan's opponents too much time to disrupt it and to recruit reinforcements... The government originally planned a 12-week pullout, but shortened it to eight weeks recently. In response to Mofaz's orders, the timetable could now be cut to four weeks, security officials said." -- Khaleej News.  This is part of the plan to separate Israelis from Palestinians so that Palestinians can be attacked without wounding Israelis.  Also see Police Plan to Use Non-Jews for Expulsion.

Assassination of Former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri (Israel)
February 26
: "In my opinion, it is only Israel that benefits from Hariri's assassination and not Syria. Hariri's relationship with Syria did not sour to the level that would call for his assassination. Assad's regime could ill-afford to dig its own grave through such a foolish act, and not at this time anyway. The regime has been in the hot seat since the U.S. occupation of Iraq with the White House alleging Syria on numerous occasions of not sealing off its 300-mile long border to deter 'foreign terrorists' from entering Iraq. The neo -conservatives in the Bush administration, most with dual allegiance to Israel, have long planned to go after Syria." -- Hariri murder: A pretext for regime change?

Hizbullah Rally in Beirut (Middle East)
March 8
: It is not democracy that's on the march in the Middle East: Managed elections are the latest device to prop up pro-western regimes", The Guardian (London), by Seumas Milne.  "The claim that democracy is on the march in the Middle East is a fraud. It is not democracy, but the US military, that is on the march ... The Iraqi elections may have looked good on TV and allowed Kurdish and Shia parties to improve their bargaining power, but millions of Iraqis were unable or unwilling to vote, key political forces were excluded, candidates' names were secret, alleged fraud widespread, the entire system designed to maintain US control and Iraqis unable to vote to end the occupation. They have no more brought democracy to Iraq than US-orchestrated elections did to south Vietnam in the 1960s and 70s. As for the cosmetic adjustments by regimes such as Egypt's and Saudi Arabia's, there is not the slightest sign that they will lead to free elections, which would be expected to bring anti-western governments to power.... What has actually taken place since 9/11 and the Iraq war is a relentless expansion of US control of the Middle East, of which the threats to Syria are a part. The Americans now have a military presence in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, the UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Qatar - and in not one of those countries did an elected government invite them in."

China Unveils Controversial Law (Far East)
March 8
: "China has announced the first details of a controversial law that would allow it to use force against Taiwan ... China sees Taiwan as its territory, and has threatened to use force if the island formally declares independence. Taiwanese lawmakers responded quickly and angrily to the proposed legislation, saying it was a pretext for attack." -- bbcnews.  This is part of the plan for World War 3: after the war is sparked in the Middle East, a nuclear confrontation on the Korean Peninsula will erupt which will threaten the existence of all mankind.  Thereafter China will invade Taiwan.

Gaza Withdrawal Commences (Israel)
March 20
: This despite Sharon's statement in 1974 claiming that the forced removal of settlers is immoral.  See
I Would Not Fulfill Such an Order.

Judge Rejects Schiavo Appeal (Population Reduction)
March 22
: "A federal judge refused to order the reinsertion of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube, leaving the fate of the severely brain-damaged Florida woman unresolved" -- foxnews.  This ruling places America far down that slippery slope of genocide against any and all devalued citizens.  This is a strong and persistent parallel to the Nazi genocide, in which Hitler's genocide murdered 6 million Jews and 12 million other devalued persons.  Another interesting anomaly is that Bush signed legislation into effect at precisely 1:11am on March 22 (repetition of 11's).  A State issue has all of a sudden become a national issue.  See also Hitler Targeted The Handicapped First, and Schiavo doctor a right-to-death activist.  Terri died on March 31, 13 days after her feeding tube was removed.

Pope John Paul II Dies (Global Religion)
April 2
: John Paul II did more to unite all religions than any other religious leader in history.  This is part of the plan to introduce a one world government - a single religion.  See an article explaining how the Pope's entire life and length of office was carried out according to sacred numbers - Read (Requires password and paid registration).

Iraq Assembly Elects Kurdish President (Middle East)
April 6
: "The Iraqi parliament chose Kurdish leader Jalal Talabani as the country's new interim president, reaching out to the nation's Kurdish minority and bringing the country closer to its first democratically elected government in 50 years."  See abcnews.  The new Prime Minister of Iraq "backs the US military presence in Iraq". President Bush now has the charade of an election he desired and his own men are now fully ensconced in power.

CBS Announces US Debt at $7.8 trillion (Collapse of US$)
April 10
: See CBS News. Of course, US national debt increases by $1.66 billion per day -- by the time you read this, debt will have exceeded $8 trillion!

Congress Passes Bankruptcy Bill (Collapse of US$)
April 14
: "Putting aside their supposed differences for a few moments, Republicans and Democrats from the reddest and bluest states alike lined up to support S.256, the "Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act," approved by the House of Representatives today on a 302-126 vote. It passed the Senate last month by 74-25. The bill now goes to President George W. Bush, who wants to sign it into law as part of his legal reform agenda." -- ConsumerAffairs.  Rather than acting to prevent real abuses by deadbeat consumers, this bill is really a Wish List for credit card companies.  Once again, Republicans live up to their reputation of not caring for the little guy, and only caring for large corporations.

New Pope Ratzinger Selected (Global Religion)
April 24
: Just as Pope John Paul II was born and buried on a Solar Eclipse, so the election of Cardinal Ratzinger was completed on the first day of the Black Magick 13-day celebratory period known as the Blood Sacrifice of the Beast (April 19), and his coronation occurred on Sunday, April 24, a day of a lunar eclipse.  See  Ratzinger took on the name Pope Benedict XVI and predicted a 'short reign' in comments to cardinals just after his election.  This is in line for Ratzinger to pass from the scene and for the final pope -- Peter Romanus, according to St. Malachy's prophecy -- to come to power.

Iraq WMD Hunt Ended (Middle East)
April 26
: "The US chief weapons inspector, Charles Duelfer, said inquiries into weapons of mass destruction in Iraq have 'gone as far as feasible'. Mr Duelfer also said an official transfer of WMDs to Syria ahead of the Iraq war was not likely. The CIA adviser reported last year that neither expected stockpiles of chemical or biological weapons, nor evidence of recent production had been found." -- bbcnews.  For many months ahead of the Iraq invasion, commentator after commentator demonstrated that the sources the Administration was quoting and the method of analysis used to interpret the source information were deeply flawed - so deeply flawed that they questioned whether Bush and Rumsfeld were deliberately lying.

British Petroleum Announces Massive Profits, Amidst Highest Petrol Prices in Years (Global Government)
April 26
: President Bush and his officials artificially drive the price of oil skyward.  See  "The United States is extracting tribute on oil from the world. If the world wants Middle Eastern oil, it can pay for it through the Saudi branch of the US Treasury ... The United States is well paid for keeping the world's supply of black gold safe and available to all. Unlike the Vietnam era - when the US was trying to finance guns and butter - getting others to pay now for our guns allows us to milk the oil out of the sand and turn it into butter." --

Africa and Asia Push for 'New World Order' (Global Government)
April 29
: "African and Asian leaders, representing two-thirds of the global population, met in Jakarta, Indonesia, to discuss ways of achieving 'a new world order'. The talks were part of the Asia-Africa Summit (AA) co-hosted by Indonesia and South Africa ... 'Your peoples pay the highest price for inaction in the face of massive violations of human rights, and for the strains placed on the UN's peacekeeping, peace building and human rights machinery', Annan said." -- Mail & Guardian.  The talks are part of restructuring third world countries to adopt systems and governments common in Western nations.

Tony Blair Reelected in UK (Global Government)
May 5
: Blair reelected for an unprecedented third term.  This is hardly surprising as the globalist candidate is always favored in Western elections.  See

Bush Almost Arrested (Erosion of Confidence)
May 5
: "A court in The Hague turned down a demand by a dozen plaintiffs who wanted to force the Dutch government to arrest US President George W Bush when he visited the Netherlands. Mr. Bush was in the south of the Netherlands to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe. The left-wing organizations and activists, accused Mr. Bush of 'numerous grave violations of the Geneva Conventions' ... They also said the president was responsible for the deaths of civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq and Washington's refusal to recognize the International Criminal Court (ICC), the world's first permanent war crimes court." -- Daily Times.

U.S. Becomes True Police State (Global Government)
May 10
: "On Tuesday, May 10, 2005, America became a true police state. Your U.S. senators voted -- unanimously, with no discussion, and without even reading the bill -- to create a national ID card. The Real ID Act blackmails state governments into turning their drivers licenses into a draconian tool of the federal homeland security apparatus. If states refuse, their citizens lose such 'privileges' as being allowed to board an airplane, enter a federal building, or apply for social security. President Bush is expected to sign the bill eagerly on Thursday.... In three years -- by May 2008 -- this Stalin-style internal passport will be an American reality. But your government will have _more_ control over you than Stalin ever dreamed ... But that's only the beginning ... In May 2008, barring a miracle, America as we once knew it will be in ruins. It will be gone. And the rights of gun owners will be among the first scheduled for destruction ... The creator of the Real ID Act, Rep. James Sensenbrenner, smiles and tells us that his Real ID Act is all about "solving illegal immigration" or "preventing terrorists from entering the country." This is one of the biggest of the thousands of "Big Lies" we've heard from the tyrants in Washington. The Real ID Act is about tracking and controlling Americans. You. Me. Our children. Everybody." --  See also How the Real ID Will Affect You.

Defiant Iran Plans Nuclear Revival (Middle East)
May 11
: "The Iranian government threatened to provoke a full-blown international crisis by confirming that it is to resume its suspended nuclear program.  A British Foreign Office spokesman said such a move would automatically halt two years of negotiations between Tehran and the European trio - Britain, France and Germany - and see immediate referral to the United Nations security council. Sanctions could follow and bring a dangerous standoff between the US, backed by Israel, and Iran. The US, in a view shared by Europe and Israel, suspects Iran is covertly trying to secure a nuclear weapon. Iran claims it only wants nuclear power for civil purposes ... While still expressing hope that this was brinkmanship, a western diplomat said he feared that this time the Iranians were not bluffing.  Another western diplomat, based in Tehran, said Iran was in danger of miscalculating international resolve." --  Notice the defiance of Iran in the face of global pressure.  Could it be because she knows Russia will back her if attacked, triggering the Middle East conflagration many are expecting?  See Aljazeera.

Pyongyang Threatens Pre-emptive Strike Against US (Far East)
May 25
: "North Korea threatened to employ a pre-emptive attack ... The North poured out anti-US rhetoric ... claiming that Washington's 'hostile policies' led it to develop nuclear weapons as a deterrent, and warning against any attack to dislodge its leadership. 'The United States should be aware that the choice of a pre-emptive attack is not only theirs', the North's official news agency quoted the Cabinet newspaper Minju Joson as saying. 'To stand against force with force is our unswerving method of response'." -- Taipei Times.  Simply further rhetoric supporting the planned North Korean nuclear holocaust.

French & Dutch Say No to E.U. Constitution (Blow to Global Government)
May 29 and June 1
: "French voters resoundingly rejected the proposed European Union constitution, handing a devastating political defeat to President Jacques Chirac of France and perhaps a fatal blow to the treaty that seeks to pull the 25 member countries together in a closer union. A bitter, divisive campaign concluded with a high turnout for the referendum, estimated at 70 percent. According to the Interior Ministry, the 'no' camp won with 54.9 percent of the vote, while 45.1 percent voted 'yes'." --   "Voters in the Netherlands have overwhelmingly rejected the proposed European Union constitution. Provisional final results indicated that 61.6% of voters said 'No' to the charter and 38.4% approved it." --  The Constitution may need to be amended to ensure a united Europe, the ultimate aim of Western leaders.

US Blends Roadmap With Oslo Accords (Israel)
June 17
: "Ahead of US secretary of state Condoleezza Rice’s visit to the region, Bush administration officials are outlining a proposal for execution after Israel’s pullout from the Gaza Strip and West Bank. DEBKAfile’s Exclusive Washington sources disclose their thinking is to resuscitate the 1993 Oslo Accords Phase 3 which calls for Israel’s withdrawal from 60 percent of the West Bank – excluding East Jerusalem, Israeli communities and military facilities." -- debkafile.  Sharon is simply carrying out the conspiracy against Israel originally envisioned by Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin in the 1993 Oslo Accords.

Eminent Domain Allows for Personal Property Seizure (Erosion of Confidence)
June 23
: "The Supreme Court ruled that local governments may seize people's homes and businesses -- even against their will -- for private economic development." -- Conservatives have been protesting for a decade now that the Federal Government has too much power to simply seize privately owned property for just about any reason whatsoever. On numerous occasions in this past decade, private property owners have not been adequately or "justly" compensated. This land has just been seized, setting an uncomfortable precedent.  See also Opinion Journal.

Iran's President Declares Worldwide Islamic Revolution (Middle East)
June 30
: "Iran's president-elect has proclaimed an Islamic revolution of global proportions. Mahmood Ahmadinejad said his election coincided with what he termed a new Islamic revolution. 'The wave of the Islamic revolution will soon reach the entire world', Ahmadinejad said ... The Teheran mayor has served as a senior commander in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, responsible for the nation's missile and nuclear weapons programs, and has been identified as a suspect in the killing of Kurdish dissidents in Europe in the late 1980s and early 1990s." -- World Tribune.  This is all part of the plan to cause the Middle East to attack Israel.  See also : Israel Expects Full-Scale Mideastern War In 2006.

As stated earlier, this is a pretty depressing view of a world sliding down a slippery slope, particularly if we extrapolate past events into the future.  2006 may turn out to be an extremely depressing year.

But there is no reason to be concerned, depressed, anxious or  disheartened IF your mindset is right for 2006.  Fortunately, there is a new book which will help address the necessary change of mindset.  Read details.
