"Truth passes through three phases: 1) It is ridiculed. 2) It is violently opposed. 3) It is accepted as self-evident." Albert Schopenhouer. In the United States, rail is currently passing through Phase Two.

From the Cabalmaster:

The Secret Worldwide Transit Cabal has previously brought you news and links about rail transport in -- er, that country formerly run by the guy with the mustache.

Now, it appears that US forces have discovered that trains are a good way to move supplies -- and people.

We in the Worldwide Secret Transit Cabal find this quite suprising, given George W. Bush's background in the oil industry, and his administration's proposals to gut Amtrak. We were sure Dubya would'a wanted to get as many Iraqs into slick, fast jobs from Toyota and General Motors ASAP! reports that one daily passenger service between Baghdad and the port of Umm Qasr was re-opened to the public on May 7. Resumption of service from Baghdad north to Mosul, and from Baghdad northwest to Al Qa'aim, northwest of the capital, were expected in the "near future." Further details here .

(Still no word, though, about the guy with the mustache or his tunnel network under Baghdad.)
