Russian Boots on Ground in Syria Seeking to Destroy Western Created ISIS

Looks like this could be it folks, Reuters report that Russia, as we all as having stationed war planes in Syria now have ground troops engaging ISIS irregulars. It is well known of course that some time ago The Pentagon put American troops and ‘military advisers’ into the front line to prop up the ISIS Islamic Jihad army which was formed by the CIA, and funded, armed and trained by Washington.

In an exclusive report, Reuters has detailed the following development in the ongoing Syrian crisis:

“Russian forces have begun participating in military operations in Syria in support of government troops, three Lebanese sources familiar with the political and military situation there said on Wednesday.

The sources, speaking to Reuters on condition they not be identified, gave the most forthright account yet from the region of what the United States fears is a deepening Russian military role in Syria’s civil war, though one of the Lebanese sources said the number of Russians involved so far was small.

U.S. officials said Russia sent two tank landing ships and additional cargo aircraft to Syria in the past day or so and deployed a small number of naval infantry forces.

The U.S. officials, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, said the intent of Russia’s military moves in Syria was unclear. One suggested the focus may be on preparing an airfield near the port city of Latakia, a stronghold of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

U.S. officials have not ruled out the possibility that Russia may want to use the airfield for air combat missions.”

Former Establishment Figure Blows Whistle On Estasblishment

Former British diplomat Craig Murray has been a thorn in the side of the establishment for some time. After he stepped down as an Ambassador Murray, who was appalled by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, became an anti -war campaigner and human rights activist (serious human rights like the right to not be bombed). Now, as the governments of the USA, United Kingdom and France plan another regime change bombing campsign, this time in Syria, Murray blows the whistle on drone warfare.

Exclusive: I Can Reveal the Legal Advice on Drone Strikes, and How the Establishment Works

September 09, 2015 “Information Clearing House” – This may be the most important article I have ever posted, because it reveals perfectly how the Establishment works and how the Red Tories and Blue Tories contrive to give a false impression of democracy. It is information I can only give you because of my experience as an insider.

It is a definitive proof of the validity of the Chomskian propaganda model. It needs a fair bit of detail to do this, but please try and read through it because it really is very, very important. After you have finished, if you agree with me about the significance, please repost, (you are free to copy), retweet, add to news aggregators (Reddit etc) and do anything you can to get other people to pay attention.

The government based its decision to execute by drone two British men in Syria on “Legal Opinion” from the Attorney-General for England and Wales, Jeremy Wright, a politician, MP and Cabinet Minister. But Wright’s legal knowledge comes from an undistinguished first degree from Exeter and a short career as a criminal defence barrister in Birmingham. His knowledge of public international law is virtually nil.

I pause briefly to note that there is no pretence of consulting the Scottish legal system. The only legal opinion is from the Attorney General for England and Wales who is also Honorary Advocate General for Northern Ireland.

So Jeremy Wright’s role is as a cypher. He performs a charade. The government employs in the FCO a dozen of the most distinguished public international lawyers in the world. When the Attorney-General’s office needs an Opinion on public international law, they ask the FCO to provide it for him to sign.

The only known occasion when this did not happen was the Iraq War. Then the FCO Legal Advisers – unanimously – advised the Attorney-General, Lord Goldsmith, that to invade Iraq was illegal. Jack Straw asked the Attorney General to dismiss the FCO chief Legal Adviser, Sir Michael Wood (Goldsmith refused). Blair sent Goldsmith to Washington where the Opinion was written for him to sign by George Bush’s lawyers. [I know this sounds incredible, but it is absolutely true]. Sir Michael Wood’s deputy, Elizabeth Wilmshurst, resigned in protest.

In consequence Blair and Straw decided that, again for the first time ever, the FCO’s chief legal adviser had to be appointed not from within the FCO legal advisers, who had all declared the war on Iraq to be illegal, but from outside. They had to find a distinguished public international lawyer who was prepared to argue that the war on Iraq was legal. That was a very small field. Blair and Straw thus turned to Benjamin Netanyahu’s favourite lawyer, Daniel Bethlehem.

MH17 Perception Deception: Truth 0% Spin 100%

In the 21st century the US may be incapable of winning wars or even pursuing its own national interest but the media manipulation around the shoot-down of MH17 proves it is reaching new heights (or depths) in the art of perception management.

This article, by Ray McGovern originally appeared at Consortium News. The author is a retired CIA analyst of 27 years. He served as chief of the Soviet Foreign Policy Branch, and prepared and personally conducted early morning briefings of the President’s Daily Brief.

During a recent interview, I was asked to express my conclusions about the July 17, 2014 shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine, prompting me to take another hard look at Official Washington’s dubious claims – pointing the finger of blame at eastern Ukrainian rebels and Moscow – based on shaky evidence regarding who was responsible for this terrible tragedy.

Unlike serious professional investigative reporters, intelligence analysts often are required by policymakers to reach rapid judgments without the twin luxuries of enough time and conclusive evidence. Having spent almost 30 years in the business of intelligence analysis, I have faced that uncomfortable challenge more times than I wish to remember.

So, I know what it feels like to confront issues of considerable consequence like the shoot-down of MH-17 and the killing of 298 passengers and crew amid intense pressure to choreograph the judgments to the propagandistic music favored by senior officials who want the U.S. “enemy” – in this case, nuclear-armed Russia and its Western-demonized President Vladimir Putin – to somehow be responsible. In such situations, the easiest and safest (career-wise) move is to twirl your analysis to the preferred tune or at least sit this jig out.

But the trust-us-it-was-Putin marathon dance has now run for 13 months – and it’s getting tiresome to hear the P.R. people in the office of Director of National Intelligence James Clapper still claiming that the U.S. intelligence community has not revised or updated its analysis of the incident since July 22, 2014, just five days after the crash.

Back then, Clapper’s office, trying to back up Secretary of State John Kerry’s anti-Russian rush to judgment, cited very sketchy evidence – in both senses of the word – drawn heavily from “social media” accounts. Obviously, the high-priced and high-caliber U.S. intelligence community has learned much more about this very sensitive case since that time, but the administration won’t tell the American people and the world. The DNI’s office still refers inquiring reporters back to the outdated report from more than a year ago.

None of this behavior would make much sense if the later U.S. intelligence data supported the hasty finger-pointing toward Putin and the rebels. If more solid and persuasive intelligence corroborated those initial assumptions, you’d think U.S. government officials would be falling over themselves to leak the evidence and declare “we told you so.” And the DNI office’s claim that it doesn’t want to prejudice the MH-17 investigation doesn’t hold water either – since the initial rush to judgment did exactly that.

So, despite the discomfort attached to making judgments with little reliable evidence – and at the risk of sounding like former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld – it seems high time to address what we know, what we don’t know, and why it may be that we don’t know what we don’t know.

Those caveats notwithstanding I would say it is a safe bet that the hard technical intelligence evidence upon which professional intelligence analysts prefer to rely does not support Secretary of State Kerry’s unseemly rush to judgment in blaming the Russian side just three days after the shoot-down.

US Officials Consider Nuclear strikes Against Russia

Haven’t I been warning for years that the threat to world peace came not from Russia or China but from the USA. In the face of severe provocation from washington the Russian government have acted with restraint. Now it looks like the Americal hawks are getting desperate.

The US needs war of course, it’s the only thing that could revive the moribund American economy and pull together a fragmented society that is on the verge of civil conflict.

from World Socialist Website:

US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter is meeting today at the headquarters of the US European Command in Stuttgart, Germany with two dozen US military commanders and European diplomats to discuss how to escalate their economic and military campaign against Russia. They will assess the impact of current economic sanctions, as well as NATO’s strategy of exploiting the crisis in eastern Ukraine to deploy ever-greater numbers of troops and military equipment to Eastern Europe, threatening Russia with war.

A US defense official told Reuters that the main purpose of the meeting was to “assess and strategize on how the United States and key allies should think about heightened tensions with Russia over the past year.” The official also said Carter was open to providing the Ukrainian regime with lethal weapons, a proposal which had been put forward earlier in the year.

Most provocatively, a report published by the Associated Press yesterday reports that the Pentagon has been actively considering the use of nuclear missiles against military targets inside Russia, in response to what it alleges are violations of the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty. Russia denies US claims that it has violated the INF by flight-testing ground-launched cruise missiles with a prohibited range.

German authorities knew threat to MH17 and did nothing

In spite of the claim from the rent-boy president Barack Hussein Obama that he had ‘conclusive proof’ the Malasian Airlines Boeing 777, flight MH17 was shot down over Ukraine by Russian separatists, no such proof has so far been forthcoming. All we have from Obama can be suymmed up as “You whitey gotta believe me because I’se black.”

Meanwhile the trickle of information that leaks out from those involved in the investigation of the outrage becomes more and more disturbing.

Take this from 4 Bit News for example:

You would expect that “the authorities”, you know those government organisations who are paid for by the people, would carry out a responsibility to their citizens if they thought there was an impending and substantial threat to life wouldn’t you. Well, you would in a modern democratic, western country at least – yes? Not so!

The German authorities were aware of the risks of flying over war-torn eastern Ukraine before Malaysian flight MH17 was shot down last July, but failed to inform local air carriers of the danger. A diplomatic cable by Germany’s Foreign Ministry a few days before the tragedy warned that the situation in eastern Ukraine was “worrying,” but “the authorities” decided it was a good tactic to warn no-one, not even their own national carriers.

US Puppet In Kiev Restarts War With Donbass Separatists

Back in February 2014, Victoria Nuland, the US Diplomat (ahem), whose famous open mic. moment revealed that once again the ‘Conspiracy Theorists’ had been right and the USA was behind the coup d’etat that deposed a corrupt, but democratically elected government and installed the neo fascist puppet government in Kiev, selected Arseniy Yatsenyuk as the Prime Minister of Ukraine. On Wednesday, March 18th, Yatsenyuk told his colleagues, “Our goal is to regain control of Donetsk and Lugansk.” With those words the Ukrainian Prime Minister tore up the Minsk agreement brokerd by German chancellor Merkel and France’s President Hollande and restarted Obama’s proxy war and the genocide of ethic Russians in Ukraine.

Yatsenyuk further announced: “Adequate financial resources are available,” to retake Donbass.”

Those “resources” come largely from the IMF, and from the United States, all with loans to the bankrupt Ukrainian Government. So that the investors will be paid the principal plus the extremely high interest on these junk-loans that are backed by their governments, Western taxpayers will ultimately be, basically, donating to Franklin Templeton, and to George Soros, and to the other financiers who are buying the Ukrainian Government bonds that will fiance the murder of thousands of ethic Russians in east Ukraine. Their blood will be on the hands of We The People though nobody asked us is we had anything against them.

Donetsk and Lugansk are the two districts comprising Donbass, the self-proclaimed independent region of Ukraine, which now calls itself “The People’s Republic” and sometimes “Novorossiya,” and which rejects the coup and its coup-imposed Government.

That Government of Ukraine is run by Yatsenyuk and the people whom he selected. Ukraine also has a President, who is elected by voters in the northwest of Ukraine, where the coup-government is accepted; but, since the coup, the Government has actually been run by Prime Minister Yatsenyuk, who is entirely dependent upon the United States Government and its subordinates (such as the IMF and NATO, in both of which the U.S. has veto-power) in order to obtain the financial and military support necessary to keep him in office.

Democracy is dead, the American government is determined to start an east west war. How much longer Russia and China will continue their policy of restraint in the face of constant American provocation is anybody’s guess.

False flags, provocations and terrorist acts to sabotage, or make more difficult, the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory (WWII Victory Day) celebration in Russia on May 9th are also possible. Since Nemtsov murder near Kremlin, Russians are on full alert; therefore, I expect it won’t be possible in Moscow and/or the main Russian cities. But Ukraine and Donbass are a different story.

World War Three? Kiev Reinvades Donbass, Deliberate Provocation Trashed Minsk Agreement
When America wants to provoke Russia it uses proxies, a rabble in Libya, Islamic fundamentalists in Syria and Iraq and neo – Nazi thugs in Ukraine. So far Russia has resisted the urge to kick Obama in the balls, but sooner or later the Russia – China – Iran alliance will respond.

According to the expert of the Russian Military Sciences Academy Vladimir Prokhvatilov (null, confirmed by multiple intelligence sources in Donbass and Ukraine, Kiev is expected to start a new massive offensive on Donbass in order to surround and cut Donetsk off Lugansk, with simultaneous attack on Lugansk. We will recall that a similar recent attempt resulted in the Debaltsevo cauldron, where thousands of Ukrainian troops perished. This time, the result will be the same, but it appears Kiev doesn’t care about the result, it only cares about making the life of the Donbass people as difficult as possible, and about sabotaging Russian holidays.

Kiev has officially broken the Minsk agreements. Instead of pulling its heavy artillery away from the front lines in oder to create a demilitarized zone, Kiev is amassing heavy artillery, tanks and troops.

It is believed that they will attack during the sacred Orthodox Holiday – Pascha (Easter). Previous mass bombings of DNR and LNR, as well as mass attacks by Kiev on both republics, were all scheduled during an important holiday, in order to spoil people’s celebration. This year, Pascha is celebrated on April 12.

Tom Cotton says Iran must be stopped because ‘they already control Tehran’

With guys like this running things is it any wonder the world is teetering on the brink of all out war?

US Republican Senator Tom Cotton (Arizona) on Sunday cited Iran’s control of their own capital, Tehran, as a reason that the country had to be stopped from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

Senator Tom Cotton, a man whose IQ is written on his face (source)

In a interview on CBS, Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer pointed out that Cotton’s letter to Iran, which was also signed by 46 other Republican senators, may have undermined President Barack Obama’s ability to get a nuclear deal with Iran.

“Let’s say the deal falls through, then what?” Schieffer wondered.

Cotton replied by quoting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“The alternative to a bad deal is a better deal,” the freshman senator insisted. “The Iranians frequently bluff to walk away from the table. If they bluff this week, call their bluff. Congress stands ready to impose much more severe sanctions.”

“Moreover, we have to stand up to Iran’s attempts to drive for regional dominance,” he continued. “They already control Tehran and, increasingly, they control Damascus and Beirut and Baghdad. And now, Sana’a as well.”

“They do all that without a nuclear weapon. What they would do without a nuclear weapon.”

Cotton told Schieffer that he had “no regrets at all” about sending the letter to Iran.

Not smart enough to know he’s stupid even. It fills one with confidence doesn’t it?

China Warns U.S. to Stop Its Ukrainian Proxy War Against Russia

It was the biggest news story of last weekend but because it was not favourable to the pro Obama, pro Corporate global dictatorship narrative that is imposed in us by mainstream media, there was not a mention of it in mainstream media.

So where did Little Nicky find it? On a nutty right wing site? No.

Well not that either …

So whas it on a respected and reliable centre – right leaning news feed like Reuters. Coooooooolllllllllddddddd Be.

OK, that was just for people who remember Hong Kong Fooey. But yes, Reuters did carry a news item about China wasrning the USA to stop killing Ukranians in the desperate efforts to provoke the Russians into starting a shooting war.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/02/27/us-china-ukraine-idUSKBN0LV0H120150227

A much-ignored huge news report from Reuters on Friday, February 27th, was headlined “Chinese diplomat tells West to consider Russia’s security concerns over Ukraine

China’s Ambassador to Belgium said that the “nature and root cause” of the Ukrainian conflict is “the West,” (Little Nicky and his friends at The Daily Stirrer told you that a year ago of course, everybody who wasn’t brain dead knows the Ukrainian revolution was engineered and backed by the USA, EU and NATO) The ambassador also warned that “The West should abandon the zero-sum mentality, and take the real security concerns of Russia into consideration.”

By “real security concerns,” the Chinese are clearly referring to NATO’s expansion right up to Russia’s border, and America’s surrounding Russia with U.S. military bases, now increasingly including the most strategic of Russia’s bordering countries: Ukraine.

In other words, this diplomat says: “the West” has a “zero-sum” attitude toward Russia, instead of seeking to move forward with an approach in which neither side among the nuclear superpowers benefits at the other’s expense — the entire world moves forward together.

This is a direct criticism of Barack Obama, and of all of the pro-Obama, anti-Putin, EU leaders.

It’s also an implicit repudiation of Obama’s having repeatedly referred to the U.S. as “the one indispensable nation.” (Another example of that phrase is here.) Obama keeps saying: every other nation, except the U.S., is “dispensable.” He clearly thinks that Russia is.

That’s not merely an insult: it’s an act of provocation; it is virtually asking for a fight. And all for what? For whose geopolitical advantage? Cui bono?

This criticism of the aggressive nationalist Obama does not come from China’s top leadership, but it would not have come at all if they had not approved of it in advance.

China thus now tells Obama: Stop it. Stop it in word, and in deed.

Implicitly, China is also telling Obama: China is not dispensable, either. Don’t fuck with us. In fact don’t fuck with anybody without our permission.

Like Russia, China does not give a damn about American exceptionalism or the delusional American worldview. The entire mentality, which Obama embodies, is not just callous and insulting; it’s dangerous.

Like President G.W. Bush, Obama is increasingly an embarassment to his country.

Mikhail Gorbacev: No fan of the Obama Administration in Washington (Image Source)

The last leader of The Soviet Union, the man who presided over the dismantling of the old oppressive regime founded by the Bolsheviks and led Russia into the modern world has delivered an astonishing attack on the USA and its current leadership and the direction the ‘leader of the free world’ is taking the western allies.

In November 2014 Gorbachev warned “the world is on the brink of a new Cold War.” By late December, as the ongoing currency war developed he had upped the ante, saying he feared “a war of this kind could lead to a nuclear war,” hoping that no one “loses their nerve in this overheated situation.”

Yesterday, in an interview with Russian news agency Interfax, reported by Common Dreams, the 83-year-old former Soviet leader, asks “have they lost their minds?” raging that “the U.S. has already dragged us into a new Cold War, trying to openly implement its idea of triumphalism,” warning that “the ‘cold’ war will “lead to a ‘hot’ war.” He concluded “The U.S. has been totally ‘lost in the jungle’ and is dragging us there as well.”

While German enviroloons have been forced to accept their green policies based on medieval wind technology have failed and eft the European Union’s most powerful (and the Euro zone’s only solvent) nation dangerously dependent on Russia for its energy needs, smaller economies have bee hit hard by American sanctions preventing them exporting to Russia.

Mainsteeam Media Suppressing News About Fligh MH17 Inquiry

Downed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 News Developments Being Suppress By Mainstream Media.

Given the tarnished reputation of mainstream media after decades of its reporting only news favourable to establishment political and corporate interests, it ought not to surprise anybody that television and print news organisations have been suppressing news of developments in the quest to discover the truth about downed Malaysia Airlines Beoing 777, Flight MH17.

Read The Daily Stirrer post on this story:
Downed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 News Developments Being Suppress By Mainstream Media.

Back in August the excellent Washington’s Blog reported a whistleblower leaking detains of a five nation conspiracy to make sure the truth about the shooting down of flight MH17 never emerged. Now why would they do that unless they knew the information would be damaging to US / EU leaders and their neo Nazi stooges in Kiev.

Here’s a snippet from that Washington’s Blog report:

Regarding what caused the downing of the Malaysian airliner MH-17 in Ukraine on July 17th, the Ukrainian news agency UNIAN, reported in a brief Russian-language news story on August 12th, that four days earlier (August 8th) a representative of that nation’s Prosecutor General office, Yuri Boychenko, had said that (as auto-translated by google), “the results [of the investigation] will be announced upon completion of the investigation and with the consent of all the parties who signed the corresponding agreement.”

This UNIAN report said that, “As part of the four-party agreement signed on August 8 between Ukraine, the Netherlands, Belgium and Australia [all of which nations are allies of the United States and are cooperating with its new Cold War against Russia], information on the investigation into the disaster Malaysian ‘Boeing-777’ will not be disclosed.” In other words: the official ‘investigation’ is being carried out by four nations that, as U.S. allies, are hostile toward Russia.

One of those four nations, Ukraine, is not only a prime suspect in possibly having shot this airliner down, but is currently waging a hot war to ethnically-cleanse the pro-Russian population out of southeastern Ukraine; and the initial ‘news’ reports in Western ‘news’ media regarding the downing of MH-17 had said that this airliner was probably downed by the local rebels there, who were trying to shoot down the Ukrainian Government’s bombers that are constantly bombing them.

Some Western ‘news’ reports even speculated that perhaps Russia itself had shot this airliner down. If the UNIAN news-report is correct, then there is no way that the ‘investigation’ will be able to be released to the public if it indicates that the Ukrainian Government (which, according to that news-report has veto power over the making-public of the study’s findings) is blamed for having shot the airliner down.

The Damning (but secret) Report On Blair’s Weapons Of Mass Destruction

The reason why the UK went to war in Iraq was a trumped up, sexed up dossier prepated on the orders of former UK Prime minister, the traitor and war criminal Tony Blair, accusing Iraq’s dictator Saddam Hussain of stockpiling weapons of mass destruction. The accusations in the dossier have since proven to be completely false. Blair’s determination to blindly followed the US President to war is responsible for Iraq becoming the failed state it is today, costing countless innocent civilians, not least the lives of our own troops and massive cost to the taxpayer in the process.

Were there any illegal weapons found in Iraq you might well ask. A New York Times investigation, published on Tuesday of this week reveals there were, but not such as would justify war. American and Iraqi troops found, and in multiple cases, were injured by aged and degraded stockpiles of chemical weapons in Iraq.

The report stated however that the US withheld information of these discoveries from the world as the weapons were manufactured in the 1980s when the US and its allies were actively supplying chemical agents to Saddam Hussein’s regime during the Iraq-Iran war. In other words – western foreign policy makers fucked up again.

UPDATE:
Why Bush Censored News Of WMD Finds In Iraq

As soon as Obama gets one new war he wants another.

It was only two days ago Barack Hussein Obama went on tlevision to pitch his latest was to the American people. Contrary to what our ideologically idiotic leftie friends might tell you, America is not overwhelmingly in favour of Obama. Those who never supported him or feel the warmonger In Chief has betrayed them are not “a few right wing nut jobs who believe God created the world 4,000 years ago,” but actually about 50% of Americans with a a further significant minority believing Obama is well intentioned but even more clueless than Jimmy Carter.

Also contrary to what our ideologically idiotic leftie friends might tell you, Americas are not stupid even if their President is. They know a war against ISIS can never be won and cannot even succeed in checking the advance of the Islamic State forces without boots on the ground. And America has no desire for another war.

Obama is a solipsist however, and thus is as detached from reality as Tony Blair was. Already he is working on starting another war. Or to be exact, restarting another failed war.

Even as their heads are still reeling from the earbashing they took when Britain and Germany when they held out the begging bowl for support in a new war in Iraq and Syria, America’s Dumb and Dumber team, Barack Obama and John (Herman Munster) Kerry are trying to seduce Algeria into allowing The Evil Empire to set up bases within its borders from which to attack Libya.

Reintervention: Algeria considering US, France request to ‘facilitate’ Libya military strikes

from stratrisks.com

Algeria is reportedly studying requests by the US and France to “facilitate” military operations against militant groups in neighbouring Libya.

“The US and France have both asked Algeria to open its airspace to surveillance planes and other military planes transferring commando units for a reconnaissance mission in parts of Libya,” the source, requesting anonymity, told Anadolu Agency.

He added that the US and France have made the same request of “other states near Libya.”

Interesting to note that although it may be nothing but a rumour, one news report today said the assessors of the Nobel Peace Prize let it be known they regretted giving the peace prize to Obama. I think that’s a bit harsh, he has worked tirelessly to achieve peace … by killing every fucker in the world.

It’s ironic in view of the fact that so many recent Little Nicky Machiavelli and Boggart Blog post centering on the story of Malaysia Airlines flight mh17, that the two subsequent lead stories in world news, the starving of the Yazidi n Iraq by ISIS rebels and the beheading of American journalist Michael Foley have turned out to be not quite what the mainstream media reported.

What has held the attention of Little Nicky about the MH17 saga was not so much the atrocity itself as the determination of one particular blogger (and his imaginary friends) at this site to deny the authenticity of any evidence suggesting the attack was a false flag staged by the Kiev government in order to give US rent-boy President and Coke-addict-In-Chief an excuse to start a shooting war with Russia, while simultaneously offering as evidence to support his “It were Putin wot done it,” narrative the explanation that “our side don’t tell lies’.

Even the CIA have refused to back Obama’s version of events and the latest leak from the top secret cover – up investigation of the MH17 disaster is even more shocking. but I will deal with that elsewhere.

Over the weekend as hysteria increased over the alleged beheading of Michael Foley the first rumours that the event may have been staged were met with the inevitable cries of ‘conspiracy theory’.

I did not watch the video so I can’t say if the video looked like amateur dramatics or not. In these cases I reserve judgement (as I did in the case of the downed Boeing 777 – and I’ve lost count of the time I’ve explained to the want-war blogger that disbelieving the Americans does not imply that one believes the Russians.)

In the case of the jounalist, obviously neither I not anybody else can say if he is still alive but perhaps a prisoner, was killed in crossfire, was captured and executed in a less barbaric way or if the whole thing is a fabrication. All I know is this time the cries of ‘conspiracy theory’ hve quickly evaporated to be replaced by claims of fakery such as the one reported in The Times.

What we should remember is that while western leaders were prepared to accept at face value the beheading story because it suited their purpose, they were very eager to accept the equally dodgy narrative from the US / EU backed neo-nazi junta in Kiev because the USA is set on dragging its allies into a war with Russia and China.

That ‘our’ side are just as evil as ‘the dark side’ is too shocking for the leftie screechers to get their little heads round.

Foley murder video ‘may have been staged’ – Daily Telegraph

and finally

Jim Foley beheading a Fake? in http://www.abovetopsecret.com starts with these words:

“Did anyone watch it? Don’t worry it doesn’t show anything gruesome. Why would ISIS use special effects? Why would they fade out before the gruesome part? Terrorist have shown beheadings in the part. If ISIS is so sadistic as being labeled, why would they sensor a beheading?”

… and goes on to point out the obvious flaws and errors in the video posted online.

The problem many people have of course is that they are so afraid of learning that western governments are really no different from those governments we have been told for decades are our enemies, they must now keep thesmselves in complete denial of reality.

Demand Swells for Straight Answers on MH 17 incident in Ukraine

There are some idiots out there who wil tell you they are left wing, while displaying a love of authority and a desire for war that exposes their dishonesty, who will try to tell you Little Nicky Machiavelli is about the only blogger who still believes the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over Ukraine was probably a false flag event intended to provide an excuse for the USA to declare war on Russia.

Little Nicky may be influential but he is certainly not influential enough to prevent a bloodthirsty neo Nazi like Barack Obama going to war in order to serve the interests of his paymasters.

Here is another news story that will not make mainstream media.

Call For Independent Inquiry of the Airplane Crash in Ukraine and its Catastrophic Aftermath.

from War Is A Crime

A long list of prominent individuals has signed, a number of organizations will be promoting next week, and you can be one of the first to sign right now, a petition titled “Call For Independent Inquiry of the Airplane Crash in Ukraine and its Catastrophic Aftermath.”

The petition is directed to “All the heads of states of NATO countries, and of Russia and the Ukraine, to Ban-ki Moon and the heads of states of countries on the UN Security Council.” And it will be delivered to each of them.

The petition reads:

“Set up an impartial international fact finding inquiry and a public report on the events in Ukraine to reveal the truth of what occurred.

“Why is this important?

“It’s important because there is so much misinformation and disinformation in the media that we are careening towards a new cold war with Russia over this.”

That’s not Conspiracy Theory. It is the measured language politicians and diplomats.

Of course, there are facts material to the understanding of this case that could change public perception. Many Americans for example are unaware of the Washington / EU attempt to expand NATO’s by recruiting former Soviet Republics Ukraine and Georgia in breach of binding treaties made with Russia after the break up of The Soviet Union, or of what actions Russia views as aggressive and threatening.

But when a particular incident appears to be set up as a proximate cause for war it is well worth our time to insist on an exposure of the facts. Doing so does not accept that any outcome of the inquiry could justify war between the west and Russia (which would be supported by its allies China and Iran. Rather it is to prevent the imposition as truth of an unproven allegation that would be used to justify the declaration of war.

What if the Gulf of Tonkin had been investigated 50 years ago this month? What if the independent inquiry that Spain wanted into the USS Maine had been allowed? What if Congress hadn’t swallowed the one about the babies taken from incubators or that hilarious bit about the vast stockpiles of WMDs? Or, on the other hand, what if everyone had listened to John Kerry unskeptically on Syria last year?

News Beacon Ireland points out (my emphasis):

When a Malaysian airplane went down in Ukraine, US Secretary Of State John Kerry immediately blamed Vladimir Putin, but has yet to produce any evidence to back up the accusation. Meanwhile, we learn that the U.S. government is looking into the possibility that what happened was actually an attempt to assassinate Putin. Those two versions, the one initially announced with no apparent basis and the one reportedly now being investigated in secret, could hardly be more different. That the second one is under consideration makes it appear very likely that any serious proof of the former claim has not been found.

Which about sums up the case the want-war brigade are making. They are still peddling lies even the liars of the Obama Administration are backing off.

and then there’s this …

US And Ukraine Fabricated Evidence To Blame Russia And The Rebels

There is now a growing body of irrefutable evidence which points directly to the MH17 shoot down being a classic false flag operation. Each piece of evidence definitively places at least three nations at the scene of both the crime and the cover-up.

Whereas the Ukraine government and military executed this cold-blooded murder of innocent civilians, most likely under the direct supervision of the CIA, the US and UK governments have been implementing the non-stop coverup and false flag operation.

The Propaganda and Politics of MH17

from New Eastern Outlook

The downing of Malaysian Airlines flight 17 (MH17) is a tragedy that will be remembered for years to come. However, the way in which the West has distorted the facts about what happened is no mere accident. Rather, it is a clear attempt by Washington and its allies and proxies to capitalize on the incident, using it as a weapon in their continued belligerent and aggressive policies toward Russia.

Recent days have seen a deluge of propaganda from both the US Government and the western media (especially US media) which, despite being short on facts, has attempted to place the blame for MH17 squarely on Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin. While this certainly is no surprise given the public demonization campaign of Russia throughout the conflict in Ukraine, it undoubtedly crosses the line from laughable to utterly irresponsible and dangerous. Given the already icy relations between the two countries, it seems that Washington has as part of its strategy the inflammation of tensions.

But why? What does the US political establishment, which includes both major parties, hope to gain from this tragedy? Or, perhaps more specifically, how does the United States plan to capitalize on the incident? The propaganda, spin, and outright lies from Western media cannot be understood in a vacuum. Rather, they must be recognized as part and parcel of the larger political agenda of the West both in Ukraine, and Eastern Europe as a whole.

Lebanon Army Chief Warns of Widening Conflict As ISIS Extremists Attack

Hee’s the latest instalment of depressing news from the middle east:

islamic state lebanon
Islamic State fighters raise their flag in Labanon

(Reuters) – Islamic State insurgents who seized a Lebanese border town this month planned to turn Lebanon into another Iraq by unleashing sectarian war between Sunnis and Shi’ites that would have endangered the nation’s very existence, the army commander said.

General Jean Kahwaji told Reuters that radical Islamists on the march in Iraq and Syria still posed a “great threat” to Lebanon, which was torn apart by a 1975-90 civil war and has been badly buffeted by the Syrian conflict.

“The army hit them and continues to, smashing their plan,” said Kahwaji, 37 of whose soldiers were either killed or captured in the battle for the border town of Arsal. “But this does not mean that the story is over,” he said.

“They might think of another plan and try another time to cause Sunni-Shi’ite strife,” said Kahwaji, 60.

The Aug. 2 attack marked the most serious spillover to date of Syria’s three-year-old civil war into Lebanon and the first time a foreign invader has taken Lebanese territory since Israel entered the south during its 2006 war with Hezbollah. Read more at Reuters

Another ‘I told you so’ for Little Nicky, another all too predicable outcome of the west’s arming and training Islamists extremists in an idiotic push to overthrow the Assad regime in Syria and turn yet another middle eastern nation into a lawless failed state.

And don’t forget folks, our war loving, neo fascist blogosphere colleagues who cheered for ‘humaniratian’ intervention in Syria and are now waving flags for war with Russia were facilitators of this conflict. They gave Ameriucan, British and French leader enough support to encourage them to go ahead with arming and training the human organ noshing lunatics who are rampaging through Iraq and now seem to be turning to Lebanon as their next target in establishing an Islamic Cliphate.

Life In Libya Worse Than Under Gadaffi Say Evacuees

gaddafi libya
Muammar ‘Mad Dog’ Gaddafi maintained a brutal kind of social order in Libya

Occasionally we have the great good fortune to stumple upon a fully paid up, card carry member of the Idiots Association. There’s one visits my threads occasionally, usually announcing that he ‘works in a university’ as if that make his opinions more valuable than those of us who live and work in the real world and deal with its harsh realities every day, rather than spending our lives cocooned in the embrace of a cloistered environment.

His most recent contribution was to accuse me of being gullible enough to believe Russian propaganda about the downing of Flight MH17 over Ukraine. You can see for yourselves that my post What The Media Is Not Writing About MH17 did not say that I believe the Russians, only that I doubt the hastily composed narrative put out by the American Government claiming they had irrefutable evidence that Russia was directly involved. A position that has now been proved correct by the American government’s failure to supply any evidence and actually backing of from their position of blaming Russia. (look at the comment thread to see the guy wrigging rather than admit he’d been wrong again.)

Apparently the idea that in the absence of evidence there may be more than two possible answers to a problem is apparently too complex for those who work in higher education. We may assume however from this person’s belief that everything is either back or white that he has not heard of Fifty Shades Of Gray.

An earlier intervention from him, on a post in which I justified my opposition to military intervention in Libya by pointing out that the rabble of gangsters and warlords that passed for government after the fall of Gaddafi was worse than when the old Mad Dog was in power.

Our colleague jumped in to say that I could not seriously be suggesting that what existed in Libya under Gadaffi could be called law and order. Well all things are relative (another concept too difficult for the intellectual left)and yes, there was a brutal kind of order under Gadaffi as there was in Syria before the west sponsored a rebellion against Assad).

And what do the people of Libya have to endure now you might well ask?

from AFP via AsiaOne News

Libya is descending into a civil war spiral that is “much worse” than the unrest that toppled its dictator Moamar Gaddafi in 2011, residents fleeing the country said Saturday.

“We have gone through (war) before, with Gaddafi, but now it’s much worse,” Paraskevi Athineou, a Greek woman living in Libya, told AFP.

“Chaos reigns. There is no government, we have no food, no fuel, no water, no electricity for hours on end,” she said.

Athineou was part of a group of 186 people evacuated from Tripoli by a Greek navy frigate which reached the port of Piraeus early on Saturday.

In addition to 77 Greek nationals, there were 78 Chinese, 10 Britons, 12 Cypriots, seven Belgians, one Albanian and a Russian.

Among them were several diplomats, including the Chinese ambassador to Libya.

Libya has suffered chronic insecurity since Gaddafi’s overthrow in 2011, with the new government unable to check militias that helped to remove him and facing a growing threat from Islamist groups.

“So many people died to make the country better. But now we started killing each other in a civil war,? said Osama Monsour, a 35-year-old employed at a non-governmental organisation in Tripoli.

Fighting between rival militias in Tripoli has forced the closure of the city’s international airport, while Islamist groups are also battling army special forces in the eastern city of Benghazi.

“War is in the city… and we civilians are under fire from both sides,” Athineou said.

“It is worse than 2011,” said Ali Gariani, a Libyan married to a Greek woman.

“That time were were being bombed by NATO. But now we are being bombed by the Libyans themselves, and that is really shameful,” he said.

As always I was right. Sadly with mainstream news media in the west becoming more of a government / corporate propaganda machine with every week that goes by, it often takes a while for events to prove me right.

So I wonder how many Libyans will have to die before our leftie friends will climb down off their high horse, start blaming the FUKUS axis and taking it leading from behind’ Obama for this mess. When they have done that they can admit they were wrong and then fuck the fucking fuck off back to their ivory towers, leaving the thinking to grown ups.

Rape As A Weapon

Questions for Liberals #1. Is support for people who use rape as a weapon of war compatible with political correctness?

http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474981838492

As I wander through gather these days I often find myself thinking how medieval and parochial the ‘liberals’ and ‘progressives are. No doubt many who wear those labels with pride would claim their political opponents the religious right are even more parochial and medieval.

Maybe the real religious right are but there are two point to consider here:

Not everybody who opposes the neo fascism of the progressive liberals is a Republican.

Not every Republican is a supporter of the religious right.

The conviction among progressive liberals that there are only two possible political positions rather proves my case about parochialism and medievalism and explains why so many of these lefties openly support medieval brutality.

When stumbling through Stumble Upon I chanced on this Washington Post headline, that made me think of how the liberals had cheered at the prospect of America supporting the Syrian rebels. The story was headlined:

Rape has become “significant” part of Syrian war, says humanitarian group.

Well I know that rape is a weapon of war, a weapon of genocide even, in tribal societies, but I wondered if those parochial liberals at gather did. And if so, do they know how rape can be used as a weapon of genocide?

It is necessary here to first understand that “they” i.e. the majority of cultures and societies outside western Europe and north America are nothing like us. A minory of elite intellectuals and wealthy business people might have adopted the politically correct mores of the west but generally despite the coming of technology these societies have changed little in a thousand years.

I can almost hear those liberals wailing and gnashing their teeth all the way across the Atlantic, they are crying “Oh no, that horrible Ian Thorpe cannot criticize Africans, Africans are nice, Africans are good, our beloved President is an African.”

(To which we would be justified in asking, “If Obama is an African what’s he doing in The White House?” but we’ll let that one pass for now.)

The first thing to understand is there is no African race as such. The Arabs and Moors in the north and the negros in the south might have dark skin but that is about all they have in common. The African continent is the most racist and racially divided place on this planet.

African nations are mash ups of ancient tribal societies and cultures. I’ll explain the significance of that of that later but first here’s some evidence that it is going on.

Rape as a weapon of war – Amnesty International

This report finds that rape and other forms of sexual violence in Darfur are being used as a weapon of war in order to humiliate, punish, control, inflict fear and displace women and their communities. These rapes and other sexual violence constitute grave violations of international human rights and humanitarian law, including war crimes and crimes against humanity. The report also examines the consequences of rape which have immediate and long-term effects on women beyond the actual physical violence. (also: Rape as a weapon in Sudan – Amnesty International)

Consultancy Africa: War rape: A Planned and targeted policy for genocide

FIRST PARAGRAPH OF THE LINKED DOCUMENT

War rape has a history as long as the practice of war itself. Rape that occurred in war zones was seen as a by-product of wartime activity, collateral damage or as spoils of war for a long time and was not considered as a violation of humanitarian law (2) or as a war strategy.(3) The change in policy happened with the Rwanda Tribunals, which prosecuted rape as a component of the conflict in the region and as a crime against humanity that served the goals of genocide. A big shift in thinking about rape happened. Thinking that rape is simply the ‘by-product’ of war was changed with the recognition that rape is actually a planned and targeted policy. Rape became recognised as a weapon of war. It was acknowledged that war enemies tried to achieve political objectives such as ethnic cleansing, genocide, and the occupation of enemy territory by targeting women of the opposite side or other ethnicity.(4) ‘Rape as a weapon of war’ is still not a legal term concept, but has at least taken on legal significance due to the work of the Rwanda Tribunals.

BBC News: How Did Rape Become A Weapon Of War A Report from Medicins Sans Frontiers for BBC News

Women’s bodies have become part of the terrain of conflict, according to a new report by Amnesty International.

Rape and sexual abuse are not just a by-product of war but are used as a deliberate military strategy, it says.

The opportunistic rape and pillage of previous centuries has been replaced in modern conflict by rape used as an orchestrated combat tool.

And while Amnesty cites ongoing conflicts in Colombia, Iraq, Sudan, Chechnya, Nepal and Afghanistan, the use of rape as a weapon of war goes back much further …

Â

But rape as genocide, how does that work?

It’s a little bit more subtle and a whole lot more cruel than gunning people down or disembowelling victims.

I have written here many times before that those “liberals” who are always wailing and gnashing teeth about the suffering of people in third world basket case tyrannies really do not have a clue how things work in these places. One of the most frequent complaints levelled by Africans at American and European guilt tourists is those do gooders glibly assume Africans yearn to live in societies modelled on those of America or Europe’s most advanced nations.

In reality we do not have a clue how the mindset of people who have always lived in rigid tribal societies sees the world but basically they despise us for our selfishness greed and lack of values. I don’t agree with them but respect their right to their opinion.

One of the big things in the life of a tribesman or woman (and remember we are talking about a huge majority of the people in the world) is their status as a member of their tribe or caste. Many books have been written on that so I’ll just leave it there for people to research if they wish. Lose your status in the tribe and you’re nobody, there is no way back.

Sexist, racist and primitive as it may seem, one of the things that gives a woman status is her virtue. Conventions vary in different tribes but almost universally if a woman is not a virgin she’s pretty much done for, and if she is penetrated by a man who is not a member of her tribe she might as well be dead.

This stems from a totally nonsensical but very powerful belief (that as recently as fifty years ago had not been completely eradicated in the west) that something of the essence of a man remains in any woman he has sex with. Children borne by a woman who had not been exclusive to her hubby were ‘tainted’ by her other lovers’ seed. And in tribal societies if a woman has been raped by a member of another tribe her children can never be full tribe members or belong to a caste. They are outcastes as is their mother whose only means of supporting herself will be either prostitution or begging.

No man would marry her of course, who would want his children to be excluded from the tribe. And so those women who are raped in a tribal war are effectively removed from the breeding stock. Rape enough young women and the enemy tribes ability to reproduce is seriously compromised.

Now I an not saying we should hate Africans, my view is that if they organise their societies in ways I can’t tolerate I will not go there but I will respect their right to live that way. We in the west cannot feed all those who do not get an adequate diet and most of the money we send to feed the hungry in famine zones ends up in the offshore bank accounts of tyrants and their corrupt officials.

We cannot eradicate all disease and we cannot force our way of life on people who have chosen to live differently. To try to do so is a form of colonization. And isn’t the evil of colonialism one of the things progressives find most abhorrent about the history of the west’s dealings with third world nations?

I have always been a non interventionist. When I said we should not invade Iraq because the country would fragment into a tribal society, a lawless failed state, I was accused of supporting the brutal tyrant Saddam. When I said we should not bring down Gadaffi because it would destroy Libya and open the way for Islamist groups to gain control of mineral resources in Mali, Chad and Niger that are vital to western economic interests I was scoffed at and called a right wing nut job. Libya is now a failed state and the weapons used in Al Qaeda’s attempts to gain control of Mali and the Algerian hostage crisis were smuggled through Libya’s southern border. I was called inhuamane when I said we should leave Assad to crush the uprising but instead of a few hundred dissidents being killed, that’s to the west’s arming the rebels via Turkey, an estimated 20,000 have died.

It is always folly to meddle in things we don’t understand and we do not understand foreign societies any more than they understand ours.

The Kill Team – more evidence of Washington’s love of war

This is another post in my ongoing campaign to make idiot lefties wake up to the fact that their messiah, the chosen one, the Rent – Boy President Barack Hussein Obama is actually a more right – wing president than his predecessor George W Bush and is more in love with war, genocide and mass murder than any leader since Genghis Khan.

Not that I am suggesting he is any worse than our current crop of European leaders, Baphomet Merkel, Asmodius Hollande and Moloch Cameron. They are all insane …

The Kill Team: The murderous reality of the US war in Afghanistan

from RINF

The constant pressure to kill or be killed. It is impossible not to get into the insanity of it,” explains US army Corporal Jeremy Morlock in a new documentary about a group of American soldiers nicknamed the “Kill Team.”

The moniker, applied by the media to members of an army unit who committed war crimes in Afghanistan, is also the title of the film by US documentarian Dan Krauss.

The platoon came from the Fifth Stryker Brigade, Second Infantry Division, based at Lewis-McChord Army Base near Seattle, Washington. The filmmakers focus on Specialist Adam Winfield, who was 17 at the time he joined the army. Deployed to Afghanistan in July 2009, Winfield was contacting his father Chris by February of the next year about atrocities being committed by members of his unit, whose ringleader and highest-ranking member was Staff Sergeant Calvin Gibbs.

According to the film’s production notes, Krauss came upon an April 27, 2011, story in the New York Times (“A Beast in the Heart of Every Fighting Man” by Luke Mogelson) that described Winfield as both a whistleblower and a murder suspect. The article claimed the designation “Kill Team” came from a leaked video interview in which Winfield told an army special agent that Gibbs “thought I was weak and I’m not good enough to be on his quote-unquote ‘kill team.’”

In a four-month period in 2010, the “Kill Team” carried out three murders of Afghan civilians for sport and kept finger and leg bones, a tooth and a skull as grisly trophies in one of the most widely publicized cases of American criminality in Afghanistan.

And don’t forget everyone, this is exactly the kind of thing the Rent – Boy President has already tried to spread to Syria, take back to Iraq and is currently trying to kick off in Ukraine. We should resist all calls to war and we should be very sceptical of all propaganda coming out of Washington about atrocities that must be avenged by full scale military intervention.

And we should be especially sceptical of the bletherings of neo Nazis who style themselves left wing in support of this war mongering propaganda. People who are truly left wing (e.g. anarchists like myself) are anti war. Those who have been consistently mad for war (e.g. the ‘scientist’ who accuses me of being a right wing extremist because of my scepticism about Obama’s attempts to justify a war against Russia) might be socialists, but remember, Hitler’s political movement was called The German National socialist Workers’ Party.
