The Nobel award also includes a $1.3 million cash prize, and just to remember how this famous jewish writer observes developments, here's a story on our present time's depressing detoriation.


PINTER: THE AMERICAN ADMINISTRATION IS A BLOODTHIRSTY WILD ANIMAL!

by Henk Ruyssenaars - former Stockholm correspondent.

FPF - Oct. 13th - 2005 - The Nobel Committee in the Swedish capital Stockholm officially confirmed that British playwright Harold Pinter has been chosen to receive the 2005 Nobel Prize for Literature, a gesture by most outside of the US management seen as a fierce condemnation of the present genocidal actions by Washington. Pinter's sharp criticism however is not expected to be seen nor heard in our mainstream media. A sample of his writing is given below.

Last Oct. 7th, the Norwegian Peace Prize Committee from Oslo slapped the Washington neocons in the face by awarding the Peace Prize to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the by them despised Director General, Mohamed ElBaradei - who keeps saying that according to their daily controls Iran has NO nuclear weapons program. [FPF: IAEA-Iran - Url.: http://tinyurl.com/c2g2q]

Now it's the turn of the Swedish Nobel Committee to show the neocons how and what people think about them, and - also at the suggestion of earlier Nobel Prize Laureates - the committee thus has chosen the 'US neocon bashing' and world famous playwright Pinter, who gets the Nobel prize for Literature. For Swedes which use their brain, this is a very important position which taken, in this so called 'social democratic' country with 8 million inhabitants.

For ages Sweden in general has been 'run' by two families of the swedish 'neocon nomenklatura': the Bonnier family, among much also producing and selling most infotainment via their media, plus of course school- university- etc. books, and the family Wallenberg with it's multinational group, is in charge of all banking, insurances, industry etc.

Pinter, who turned 75 last Monday, was honored because he "in his plays uncovers the precipice under everyday prattle and forces entry into oppression's closed rooms," the Swedish Academy said in a release announcing the prize. "In fact, the continuity of his work is remarkable," the academy release said, "and his political themes can be seen as a development of the early Pinter's analyzing of threat and injustice."

Pinter will receive the Nobel Prize out of the hands of King carl Gustav of Sweden on Dec. 10, in the usual ceremonies in Stockholm.

The Nobel award also includes a $1.3 million cash prize, and just to remember how this famous jewish writer observes developments, here's a story on our present time's depressing detoriation.

The article at once disappeared in the mainstream's 'Memory Hole', but was first published in ZNet* in December 2002, and in it Harold Pinter warns for the global US War OF Terror, and what he sees:

THE AMERICAN ADMINISTRATION IS A BLOODTHIRSTY WILD ANIMAL

December 2002 - Pinter: "Earlier this year, I had a major operation for cancer. The operation and its after effects were something of a nightmare. I felt I was a man unable to swim bobbing about under water in a deep dark endless ocean. But I did not drown and I am very glad to be alive.

However, I found that to emerge from a personal nightmare was to enter an infinitely more pervasive public nightmare - the nightmare of American hysteria, ignorance, arrogance, stupidity and belligerence; the most powerful nation the world has ever known effectively waging war against the rest of the world.

"If you are not with us, you are against us," President George W. Bush has said. He has also said: "We will not allow the world's worst weapons to remain in the hands of the world's worst leaders." Quite right. Look in the mirror, chum. That's you.

America is at this moment developing advanced systems of "weapons of mass destruction" and is prepared to use them where it sees fit. It has more of them than the rest of the world put together. It has walked away from international agreements on biological and chemical weapons, refusing to allow inspection of its own factories. The hypocrisy behind its public declarations and its own actions is almost a joke.

America believes that the 3,000 deaths in New York are the only deaths that count, the only deaths that matter. They are American deaths. Other deaths are unreal, abstract, of no consequence.*

The 3,000 deaths in Afghanistan are never referred to. The hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children dead through American and British sanctions which have deprived them of essential medicines are never referred to.*

The effect of depleted uranium, used by America in the Gulf war, is never referred to. Radiation levels in Iraq are appallingly high. Babies are born with no brain, no eyes, no genitals. Where they do have ears, mouths or rectums, all that issues from these orifices is blood. - [FPF-DU-Url.: http://tinyurl.com/awra3]

The 200,000 deaths in East Timor in 1975 brought about by the Indonesian government but inspired and supported by America are never referred to. The 500,000 deaths in Guatemala, Chile, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Uruguay, Argentina and Haiti, in actions supported and subsidized by America, are never referred to.

The millions of deaths in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia are no longer referred to. [FPF-Url.: http://tinyurl.com/5t9j7] - The desperate plight of the Palestinian people, the central factor in world unrest, is hardly referred to.

BUT WHAT A MISJUDGMENT OF THE PRESENT AND WHAT A MISREADING OF HISTORY THIS IS.

People do not forget. They do not forget the death of their fellows, they do not forget torture and mutilation, they do not forget injustice, they do not forget oppression, they do not forget the terrorism of mighty powers. They not only don't forget: they also strike back.

The atrocity in New York was predictable and inevitable. It was an act of retaliation against constant and systematic manifestations of state terrorism on the part of America over many years, in all parts of the world.

In Britain, the public is now being warned to be "vigilant" in preparation for potential terrorist acts. The language is in itself preposterous. How will - or can - public vigilance be embodied? Wearing a scarf over your mouth to keep out poison gas?

However, terrorist attacks are quite likely, the inevitable result of our Prime Minister's contemptible and shameful subservience to America. Apparently a terrorist poison gas attack on the London Underground system was recently prevented.

But such an act may indeed take place. Thousands of schoolchildren travel on the Underground every day. If there is a poison gas attack from which they die, the responsibility will rest entirely on the shoulders of our Prime Minister. [FPF-Boost Blair - Url.: http://tinyurl.com/b4fex ] - Needless to say, the Prime Minister does not travel on the Underground himself.

The [planned] war against Iraq is in fact a plan for premeditated murder of thousands of civilians* in order, apparently, to rescue them from their dictator.

AMERICA AND BRITAIN ARE PURSUING A COURSE THAT CAN LEAD ONLY TO AN ESCALATION OF VIOLENCE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD AND FINALLY TO CATASTROPHE.

It is obvious, however, that America is bursting at the seams to attack Iraq. I believe that it will do this not only to take control of Iraqi oil, but also because the American administration is now a bloodthirsty wild animal. Bombs are its only vocabulary.

MANY AMERICANS, WE KNOW, ARE HORRIFIED BY THE POSTURE OF THEIR GOVERNMENT, BUT SEEM TO BE HELPLESS.

UNLESS EUROPE FINDS THE SOLIDARITY, INTELLIGENCE, COURAGE AND WILL TO CHALLENGE AND RESIST AMERICAN POWER, EUROPE ITSELF WILL DESERVE ALEXANDER HERZEN'S DECLARATION:

"WE ARE NOT THE DOCTORS. WE ARE THE DISEASE".

The article is taken from an address given by Harold Pinter on receiving an honorary degree at the University of Turin.

Nobel Prize Pinter: Torture and misery in name of freedom
Por FPF-fwd.: Harold Pinter - Friday, Oct. 14, 2005 at 4:47 AM
fpf@chello.nl


By Harold Pinter who yesterday won the Nobel Prize for Literature

Published: 14 October 2005

The great poet Wilfred Owen articulated the tragedy, the horror - and indeed the pity - of war in a way no other poet has. Yet we have learnt nothing. Nearly 100 years after his death the world has become more savage, more brutal, more pitiless.

But the "free world" we are told, as embodied in the United States and Great Britain, is different to the rest of the world since our actions are dictated and sanctioned by a moral authority and a moral passion condoned by someone called God. Some people may find this difficult to comprehend but Osama Bin Laden finds it easy.

What would Wilfred Owen make of the invasion of Iraq? A bandit act, an act of blatant state terrorism, demonstrating absolute contempt for the concept of International Law. An arbitrary military action inspired by a series of lies upon lies and gross manipulation of the media and therefore of the public.

An act intended to consolidate American military and economic control of the Middle East masquerading - as a last resort (all other justifications having failed to justify themselves) - as liberation. A formidable assertion of military force responsible for the death and mutilation of thousands upon thousands of innocent people.

An independent and totally objective account of the Iraqi civilian dead in the medical magazine The Lancet estimates that the figure approaches 100,000.* But neither the US or the UK bother to count the Iraqi dead. As General Tommy Franks of US Central Command memorably said: "We don't do body counts".

We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery and degradation to the Iraqi people and call it " bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East". But, as we all know, we have not been welcomed with the predicted flowers. What we have unleashed is a ferocious and unremitting resistance, mayhem and chaos.

You may say at this point: what about the Iraqi elections? Well, President Bush himself answered this question when he said: "We cannot accept that there can be free democratic elections in a country under foreign military occupation". I had to read that statement twice before I realised that he was talking about Lebanon and Syria.

WHAT DO BUSH AND BLAIR ACTUALLY SEE WHEN THEY LOOK AT THEMSELVES IN THE MIRROR?*

I believe Wilfred Owen would share our contempt, our revulsion, our nausea and our shame at both the language and the actions of the American and British governments.

[enditem]

Adapted by Harold Pinter from a speech he delivered on winning the Wilfred Owen Award earlier this year
'A colossal figure'

* FPF: if they dare to look in a mirror they will see the same disgusting picture as war criminals like the Dutch PM Balkenende and his crooks, or the Italian collaborator and election 'fixer' PM Berlusconi and the whole malignant ilk* managing them.]

"You have no idea how I happy I am that you have won the Nobel Prize for Literature. I think you absolutely deserve it."

Vaclav Havel, PLAYWRIGHT AND FORMER CZECH PRESIDENT (BY TELEGRAM TO PINTER)

"As a writer, Harold has been unswerving for 50 years. With his earliest work he stood alone in British theatre up against the bewilderment and incomprehension of critics, the audience and writers too."

Sir Tom Stoppard, PLAYWRIGHT

"It couldn't have happened to a nicer person and it's a most fitting award."

Sir Alan Ayckbourn, ACTOR, WRITER AND DIRECTOR

"He has blown fresh air into the musty attic of conventional English literature by insisting that everything he does has a public and political dimension."

David Hare, PLAYWRIGHT

"Harold Pinter has been a colossal figure in British literature for nearly 50 years ... I'm delighted that he's now been further recognised with the Nobel Prize."

Tessa Jowell, CULTURE SECRETARY
