- As a long-time reader of Joe Vialls' articles, I want
to express my regrets over his death and offer an assessment of his work.
- Vialls was electrified by the death of Constable
Yvonne Fletcher, an event that triggered him to investigate thoroughly.
His conclusion, that the shooting was a false-flag "black operation"
intended to create unjustified hostility toward the innocent nation of
Libya, was a fitting starting point for his subsequent voluminous internet
offerings. It would not give full justice to Joe Vialls to say that he
used the internet to express his views. It would be more accurate to say
that Vialls, like other giants such as Jeff Rense and Mike Rivero, actually
transformed the internet into the most effective and trusted means of communication
in today's world, turning what used to be called the mainstream media into
what may more accurately be called the sunset media.
- On a large number of topics, Joe Vialls' analyses
are still the most penetrating and detailed available. He was one of the
first to expose the problems in the stories of the Bali and Jakarta bombings,
the assassination of Rafik Hariri. His prescient account of Operation Shekinah,
with its focus on a planned oil pipeline from Kirkuk to Haifa, was and
remains a classic of political analsysis. Vialls' analysis of the Lockerbie
disaster is also unrivalled, one of the most serious challenges to be found
anywhere. Vialls' detailed knowledge of firearms and ballistics, so effectively
used in his analysis of the Yvonne Fletcher case, is also very much in
evidence in his analysis of the Port Arthur massacre, with its framing
of a patsy clearly incapable of performing the feats of marksmanship involved.
- Similarly, Vialls's exposure of the framing of the German
student Robert Steinhaeuser for a similar massacre provides deep insight
into the ruthlessness of the criminal elements so eager to disarm the people
of the world in preparation for their own intended reign of tyranny. Those
of us, such as myself, who regard their failure and defeat in this task
as inevitable, owe an enormous debt of gratitude to Joe Vialls for shedding
the light on their activities that is indispensable to the preservation
of our own freedom and human dignity.
- This last point brings me to the essence of Joe
Vialls' contribution to the human race. His intellect was indeed sharp,
his ability to produce meticulously researched articles truly amazing.
But what makes him most admirable was his enormous heart. A man of flawless
courage, he was infuriated by cruelty inflicted on women and innocent children.
- The brutal murder of the diminutive British policewoman
Yvonne Fletcher was only the start. Vialls stepped in courageously to defend
what he regarded as the falsely accused individuals imprisoned in the ugly
murders of two English girls in the vicinity of an American airbase in
England. He was aroused to righteous fury at the terroristic killing of
innocent Iraqis in what Vialls proved to be an utterly unjustified attack
on the sovereign nation of Iraq. Above all, Joe Vialls used his own superb
manliness to defend the weak and the innocent from the attacks of the cowardly
- For that, Joe Vialls deserves the thanks of decent people
around the world. His life was a resounding victory, and his works and
his name will live on in the hearts of those who treasure the weak, the
innocent, and the defenceless.
