New York Times Says USA Too Scared Of Hitting Civilians To Deal With ISIS

There are a few questions raised by a sorty in the New York Times which accuses The White House and The Pentagon of being too scared of hitting civilians to attack ISIS strongholds in Iraq and Syria. The first is “When did the liberal New York Times align itself with neo – con warmongers.

The second of course is “When did fear of killing civilians ever stop The Pentagon from carpet bombing enemy targets?

The answer to the first is of course that to US ‘liberals’ the colour of the current President’s skin absolves him of everything, if he says war is good then there can be no argument against that.

Could the answer to the second by any chance lies in the ‘conspiracy theory’ that thanks to a recent whistleblower was proved to be true: ISIS was set up with the aid of the CIA to assist the Sunni Muslim fundametalist government of Saudi Arabia overthrow several Shi’ite and secular Muslim middle eastern dictatorships?

This story in Information Clearing House makes things a lot clearer.

NYT Trumpets U.S. Restraint against ISIS, Ignores Hundreds of Civilian Deaths

The New York Times this morning has an extraordinary article claiming that the U.S. is being hampered in its war against ISIS because of its extreme — even excessive — concern for civilians. “American officials say they are not striking significant — and obvious — Islamic State targets out of fear that the attacks will accidentally kill civilians,” reporter Eric Schmitt says.

The newspaper gives voice to numerous, mostly anonymous officials to complain that the U.S. cares too deeply about protecting civilians to do what it should do against ISIS. We learn that “many Iraqi commanders, and even some American officers, argue that exercising such prudence is harming the coalition’s larger effort to destroy” ISIS. And “a persistent complaint of Iraqi officials and security officers is that the United States has been too cautious in its air campaign, frequently allowing columns of Islamic State fighters essentially free movement on the battlefield.”

The article claims that “the campaign has killed an estimated 12,500 fighters” and “has achieved several successes in conducting about 4,200 strikes that have dropped about 14,000 bombs and other weapons.” But an anonymous American pilot nonetheless complains that “we have not taken the fight to these guys,” and says he “cannot get authority” to drone-bomb targets without excessive proof that no civilians will be endangered. Despite the criticisms, Schmitt writes, “administration officials stand by their overriding objective to prevent civilian casualties.”

But there’s one rather glaring omission in this article: the many hundreds of civilian deaths likely caused by the U.S.-led bombing campaign in Iraq and Syria.

GMO: Monsanto’s Worst Nightmare Looks Like Becoming Reality

For years the corporate agriculture industry (Big Ag) cartel and, corporate payroll scientists and opportunistic politicians have been pushing the idea that to switch from traditionally propagated crops to genetically modified organism was the only way to feed the world’s burgeoning millions.

The tame scientists who either worked for Big Ag or were on government funded research programmes were happy to produce doctored data suggesting that Genetically Modified (GM) food crops were completely safe for human consumption. Many independent biologists and geneticists disagreed but their work was derided and the strongest critics of Big Ag were marginalized or found their careers had been steered into a dead end (a familiar story to those of us who have observed the journey of the sciences from open minded inquiry to something resembling a medieval church sect.)

But in what marks a major shift in the way the wider public consume information, the citizen journalists and ‘crazy conspiracy theorists’ of new media have gradually chipped away at the completely fabricated case for GM food crops.

Some, like this blog, have focused on the economic and social consequences of handing control of the food supply to a handful of corporate enterprises with very dodgy track records on ethical matters. Others who are more appropriately qualified to challenge the misinformation and manipulated statistics put out by corporate scientists reported on how data had been faked and trials rigged.

And now it seems the tide is turning against Big Ag and their lackeys:

Monsanto’s Worst Fear May Be Coming True
Jonathan Latham, Independent Science News

The decision of the Chipotle restaurant chain to make its product lines GMO-free is not most people’s idea of a world-historic event. Especially since Chipotle, by US standards, is not a huge operation. A clear sign that the move is significant, however, is that Chipotle’s decision was met with a tidal-wave of establishment media abuse. Chipotle has been called irresponsible, anti-science, irrational, and much more by the Washington Post, Time Magazine, the Chicago Tribune, the LA Times, and many others. A business deciding to give consumers what they want was surely never so contentious.

The media’s heavy criticism of Chipotle has an explanation that is important to the future of GMOs. The cause of it is that there has long been an incipient crack in the solid public front that the food industry has presented on the GMO issue. The crack originates from the fact that while agribusiness sees GMOs as central to their business future, the brand-oriented and customer-sensitive ends of the food supply chain do not.

The brands who sell to the public, such as Nestle, Coca-Cola, Kraft, etc., are therefore much less committed to GMOs. They have gone along with their use, probably because they wish to maintain good relations with agribusiness, who are their allies and their suppliers. Possibly also they see a potential for novel products in a GMO future.

However, over the last five years, as the reputation of GMOs has come under increasing pressure in the US, the cost to food brands of ignoring the growing consumer demand for GMO-free products has increased. They might not say so in public, but the sellers of top brands have little incentive to take the flack for selling GMOs.

Is This Why UKIP Only Won One Seat

Van went missing with 200,000 postal ballot forms in South Eastern area
from The Tap

The election was rigged, as expected, awoman has claimed in The Guardian. Crooks used the postal vote system to rig the required seats. Thw whistleblower is not great on details, but he claims of how the election could have been rigged are entirely feasible.

Postal voting is ‘wide open to fraud’ and should be scrapped in its current form, a top judge warned last night.

Judge Richard Mawrey, who sits in judgment on election fraud cases, said ballot-rigging was now a ‘probability’ in some parts of Britain due to the extension of postal voting.

Mr Mawrey, a deputy high court judge, said the introduction of ‘on demand’ postal voting had failed to boost turnout. But he warned it had made Britain’s electoral system vulnerable to fraud on ‘an industrial scale’.

He told Radio 4’s File on 4 programme that in one case last year he had come across 14 different ways in which postal votes can be manipulated.

‘Postal voting on demand, however many safeguards you build into it, is wide open to fraud,’ he said.

‘It’s open to fraud on a scale that will make election rigging a possibility and indeed in some areas a probability.’

Mr Mawrey presided over a notorious 2004 ballot-rigging case in Birmingham which uncovered evidence of abuse he said would ‘disgrace a banana republic’.

Yesterday he added: ‘What has worried me about this for some time is the ease with which is it possible to commit postal vote fraud and the scale on which it can be committed.

‘In the past when you had personal voting, that is to say voting at polling stations, there was fraud but, frankly, it was minuscule. Postal voting on demand has enabled fraud to be carried out on what, in one case, I described as an industrial scale. Now let’s think back, how did we saddle ourselves with this postal voting farrago. Oh yeah, it was that liss long term goal was.tle shit Tony Blair, the traitor and war criminal who sold our country out to foreigners, the one whose government was going to “rub our noses in diversity. Well no effing prizes for guessing what his and The Labour Party’s. BTW I must have called Tony Blair a traitor and war criminal on this blog a hundred times now yet I’m still waiting to hear from his lawyers, why d’you think that might be?

Labour lose the plot

A comment from Andy S in a Disqus thread. I haven’t come across Andy before but have heard similar things to those he complains of from Labour supporters for many years.

I think the best was about a month after the 2010 election when the lefties were in full witch hunt mode against the coalition and I blogged that we had to give them a chance.

“A chance? Look how they’ve screwed up the economy,” raved one left wing commenter. The real tragedy was that the pillock wasn’t joking. Anyway over to Andy S.

The ignorance and gullibility of the Labour Party faithful is astounding to behold. If they are anything like the two Labour canvassers I encountered on Saturday outside my local shop they’d believe anything Ed told them. Among the howlers these two socialist idiots were convinced were true were:-

Andrew Lansley covered up the deaths at Stafford and other hospitals (not Andy Burnham). Also thought that the only unnecessary deaths were at one hospital.
The 50p tax rate on higher earners was introduced in 1997!
Maggie Thatcher sent in hundreds of troops against the miners at Orgreave.
Churchill sent in troops to shoot and kill striking Welsh miners in the 1920s.
Only Tory MPs were gaoled for expenses fiddling.
The 4 million+ immigrants Labour allowed to flood into the country was because we had a skills shortage.
Convinced Maggie Thatcher closed down all the pits (despite me pointing out that the N.U.M.’s own website shows that Labour closed down more pits that the Tories ever did.

I could go on but these two middle aged idiots, who should have known better, wouldn’t accept the truth of what Labour did in power, even though I told them where to research the facts. While we have people like these two I despair for the future of this country.

Labour Leadeship Contest, Corbyn Comedy Caper
When Labour elected Ed Miliband as their leader in 2010 it was clear the party had a death wish. The ‘broad church’ Prime Minister Harold Wilson spoke of in the 1960s, the alliance of intellectuals and socially conservative industrial workers who made up the party’s core vote managed to coexist. Then came feminism, politically correct thinking, New Labour factions as the party started to tear itself apart. It looks as if we are in the endgame.

He’s Not The Messiah, His Name Is Edymandias – Miliband’s slab stunt goes down like a Lead Balloon
Only two days campaigning left before polls open for the 2015 general election. Who will winn? Opinion Poll show no conclusive trends. But inside information tells us the reason conservative Prime Minister David Cameron has a smile on his face as the campaigning draws to a close. Farage is radiant, Clegg looks chirpy as his chances of holding his Sheffied seat have improved enormously, only Ed Milband is down in the dumps.

Mediterranean Immigrant Crisis – EU plays politics with lives

It should be obvious, even to hand wringing, breast beating, hypocritical left wing wailers and gnashers of teeth that the EU is actively encouraging mass immigration from Africa to Europe and is quite possibly involved in organising the ruthless, criminal operation.

Part of the EU agenda has always bee, to flood white European nations with millions of third world migrants in order to make the bolshy and (relatively) educated native whites a marginalized minority in their own countries, lower labour costs and throw the democratic process out of kilter.

The EU sees replacing white Europeans with unskilled, illiterate third world migrants as the best chance of having destroying political opposition to a meritocratic, totalitarian, single European superstate ruled by appointed bureaucrats from Brussels.

While this race replacement is aimed at all white European countries, at the moment the focus is predominantly on replacing the native people of Northern European countries such as the UK, Germany and the Scandinavian countries as they are the most articulate and organised and while less volatile than their Mediterranean counterparts are always going to be more formidable opponents should things deteriorate to such and extent that civil conflict breaks out.

As usual, this is why it is the UK that is at the forefront of advocating mass immigration from Africa because the UK has the most hateful elite in Europe who despise the working class people of the UK to an extent unheard of in most other countries.

The UK is the country the far-left cabal in European elite want to see fall first because London is such a major financial hub, so the UK is one of the main targets for disruption by mass immigration.

We must not fall into the trap of scapegoating the immigrants and those trying to enter our country illegally because they have been told they will be welcomed here and the government pays people a wage for doing nothing. Who would not want to live in such a rich and wonderful country.

It is our own political, business and academic elites who have declared war on us.
