Bilderberg Split on Iraq War

CHANTILLY, Va.—There is sharp division among Bilderberg luminaries—who are making their final arrangements to arrive for the secret meeting May 30-June 2 at the Westfields Marriott 30 miles outside of Washington—over the issue of war with Iraq.

Like their brother group, the Trilateral Commission, according to a report in the April 22 issue of American Free Press, many European leaders object to America’s determination to attack Iraq. Warhawks in the Bush administration are pressing for an attack in late summer or early fall.

American officials attending the globalist confab will be trying hard to convince the Europeans to not oppose the war if unable to outwardly support the pending attack.

On the domestic front, Bilderberg needs to convince a few generals and admirals. Secretary of State Colin Powell follows orders like the good soldier he is. But his heart is not in his saber-rattling words.

On the larger, global agenda, Bilderberg enjoys its traditional unity. There is broad agreement on the need to turn the United Nations into a world government.

Bilderberg is using its influence to promote Fast Track in Congress. Their messenger boys are Sens. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) and Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.). Both have been invited to the last three meetings. Hagel was supposed to attend the meeting in Sweden a year ago but had to remain in Washington when Sen. James Jeffords bolted the Republican Party.

By giving President Bush Fast Track authority to negotiate expansion of NAFTA throughout the Western Hemisphere, Bilderberg’s goal of creating an “American Union,” with all countries in North, Central and South America, will be advanced. The ultimate goal is to divide the world into three great regions for the administrative convenience of a world government. The dollar is to become the common currency.

The split over waging war emerged when the Tri laterals met in Washington in April. Bilderberg and Tri lateral have interlocking leadership and a common agenda. Vice President Dick Cheney, Powell and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld made the case for war.
