Obama-Netanyahu ”Fallout” Is Theater – Planned In 2009

obama netanyahu 2
By: Tony Cartalucci | Land Destroyer Report -

In a 2009 US policy paper published by the corporate-financier funded Brookings Institution, it was made clear that the US was determined to provoke Iran into a conflict and effect regime change at any cost – up to and including an outright military invasion and occupation of Iran with US troops.

However, before it came to that, the Brookings Institution’s policymakers explored other options including fomenting US-backed political unrest coupled with covert, violent force, the use of US State Department listed foreign terrorist organizations to carry out assassinations and attacks within Iran, and limited airstrikes carried out by either the US or Israel, or both.

In retrospect, 6 years on, all of these tricks have not only been attempted to one degree or another in Iran, but have been demonstrably employed in neighboring Syria to diminish its strength – which according to Brookings – is a necessary prerequisite before waging war on Iran.

And of particular interest – considering what appears to be a growing diplomatic row between the United States and Israel – is just how precisely the US planned to covertly back what would be made to appear as a “unilateral” Israeli first strike on Iran – an attack that appears to be in the process of being justified through a carefully orchestrated propaganda campaign now unfolding.

From the Mouths of US Policymakers Themselves 

The Brookings Institution’s 2009 policy paper titled, “Which Path to Persia? Options for a New American Strategy Toward Iran,” makes clear that negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program is merely theater, and that it will be used to give the world the impression that the United States explored all possible “peaceful” options before resorting to violent regime change.  The report states specifically that:

…any military operation against Iran will likely be very unpopular around the world and require the proper international context— both to ensure the logistical support the operation would require and to minimize the blowback from it. The best way to minimize international opprobrium and maximize support (however, grudging or covert) is to strike only when there is a widespread conviction that the Iranians were given but then rejected a superb offer—one so good that only a regime determined to acquire nuclear weapons and acquire them for the wrong reasons would turn it down. Under those circumstances, the United States (or Israel) could portray its operations as taken in sorrow, not anger, and at least some in the international community would conclude that the Iranians “brought it on themselves” by refusing a very good deal.

Of course, Iran – as admitted to by Brookings themselves – is not governed by irrational leadership, and would not turn down a genuinely “superb offer.” The Brookings Institution admits openly that the US pursues a dual track foreign policy – one for public consumption (making “superb offers”) and another aimed at ensuring Iran looks as unreasonable as possible.

At one point in the policy paper, Brookings would state:

The truth is that these all would be challenging cases to make. For that reason, it would be far more preferable if the United States could cite an Iranian provocation as justification for the airstrikes before launching them. Clearly, the more outrageous, the more deadly, and the more unprovoked the Iranian action, the better off the United States would be. Of course, it would be very difficult for the United States to goad Iran into such a provocation without the rest of the world recognizing this game, which would then undermine it. (One method that would have some possibility of success would be to ratchet up covert regime change efforts in the hope that Tehran would retaliate overtly, or even semi-overtly, which could then be portrayed as an unprovoked act of Iranian aggression.)

Brookings Which Path to Persia 2010 Cover
Here, Brookings policymakers openly conspire to undermine global peace by “goading” another nation into a war it neither wants nor will benefit from. Provoking a nation that poses no threat to the national security of the United States is a clear violation of international law – with the Brookings paper serving as a literal signed confession.

Yet despite this open admission, conspiring against world peace, what is of more interest is the United States’ plans to disavow any responsibility for an attack it would use its regional proxy, Israel, to carry out in its place. It states specifically under a chapter titled, “Allowing or Encouraging an Israeli Military Strike,” that:

…the most salient advantage this option has over that of an American air campaign is the possibility that Israel alone would be blamed for the attack. If this proves true, then the United States might not have to deal with Iranian retaliation or the diplomatic backlash that would accompany an American military operation against Iran. It could allow Washington to have its cake (delay Iran’s acquisition of a nuclear weapon) and eat it, too (avoid undermining many other U.S. regional diplomatic initiatives).

To no one’s surprise the British Daily Mail now reports in an article titled, “President Obama threatened to shoot down Israeli jets if they attacked Iranian nuclear facilities last year, claim sources,” that:

President Obama is alleged to have stopped an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets, according to reports to emerge from the Middle East at the weekend

The threat from the U.S. forced Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to abort a planned attack on Iraq, reported Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida.

Netanyahu will be in Washington for an address to Congress on Tuesday aimed squarely at derailing Obama’s cherished bid for a diplomatic deal with Tehran.

Here, the Daily Mail repeats a growing narrative that dovetails neatly into long-standing US foreign policy described by the Brookings Institution’s report in 2009 – down to the letter. In fact, the prospect of “shooting down” Israeli planes was discussed as one of many props used in this geopolitical theater.

The US, as prescribed by Brookings, is portrayed as desperately trying to hammer out an almost unreasonably accommodation with Iran, while “mad dog” Israel seeks to unilaterally attack Iran – thus giving the US the plausible deniability it openly claimed it would disingenuously attempt to create ahead of any Israeli attack on Iran. It should be noted that the summation of Israel’s military might is a result long, extensive, and continuous US military support meaning that Israeli military operation is even possible without it.

obama netanyahu
Also of interest is Israel’s habitual, belligerent, serial acts of inhumanity against both its own people and the Palestinians whose land Tel Aviv has seized and continues to occupy. The nature of these acts is not one of self-preservation, but of intentional provocation – creating predictable political divides across the West easily manipulated particularly at times like these where a “regrettable” attack made upon Iran, a nation the West has thus far failed to topple with terrorism, US-backed sedition, sanctions, and covert provocations, is now in the cards.

It is also clear that the 2009 “Which Path to Persia?” policy paper still represents a vivid window into a much deeper and well-entrenched doctrine still to this day being used to reorder the Middle East into alignment with Western special interests.  It is a signed confession of a now evident conspiracy against global peace and stability. It should be read, in full, before the United Nations Security Council  before those who wrote it and the corporate-financier interests who sponsored it are brought to international justice.

Anything less proves that the United States and its regional proxies, not Iran, are the rogue states, working against global peace and stability, with many standing examples already of their atrocities on display, and more – apparently – still to come.

Why Is Israel Attacking Syria Not ISIS Terrorists??

isis

Can anyone in the world make sense of what we are seeing? A group of nations working together carrying out the most unusual policies mixed with lies. Enough to drive any normal reasonable person insane trying to figure out the logic. What logic? I’m talking about trying to make sense of the western mainstream media logic (of ISIS terrorism and Muslim fundamental terrorism being so dangerous to Israel and the U.S.) in conjunction with what we actually see happening. Things like Israel and CIA (and Turkey) working with Al Qaeda, Al Nusra, and ISIS- arming, funding and training them. Things like Israel attacking only the enemies of ISIS and Al Qaeda. Things like Israel attacking the sovereign nation of Syria instead of ISIS itself declared by the U.S. government and mainstream media as so dangerous that congress voted for funding war against them.

Whatever happened to ISIS being so dangerous? Wasn’t ISIS supposed to be the greatest threat to the Middle East and the world because they supposedly have members joining from all over the world? Wasn’t ISIS the most sophisticated terror group that needed to be stopped at all cost because they were beheading Christians and took over Mosul overpowering 30,000 troops in one day? Despite all the mainstream media portrayal of ISIS as the dangerous Christian-beheading haters, and haters of U.S./Israeli (recall the James Foley beheading video) and all western culture, despite all of this, the relationship between Israel and ISIS is mysteriously peaceful and flawless. In fact when Israeli media reported the supposed arresting of an ISIS terrorist not long ago, even the supposed ISIS terrorist was given a soft sentence of 22 months in jail. Isn’t this a bit odd for a terrorist member of a group that beheads Christians and is supposed to be the most dangerous and sophisticated terror group in the world?? Or is terrorism not that serious a charge in Israel?

This is not the first time that supposed dangerous terrorists spent time in Israeli jail before being set free to rejoin supposed terror groups who are dangerous threats to Israel.  Al-Arouri is the supposed Hamas confession guy who after Israeli police concluded that the 3 murdered Israeli teens, who’s murder was used as the sole justification to launching military attacks against the people of Gaza, were not murdered by members of Hamas-Al-Arouri would later present himself as a leader of Hamas and issue a “confession” that indeed Hamas was behind the murder of the teens. This “confession” of course, would be disputed by other members of Hamas and would contradict the factual findings by their very own Israeli police. Conveniently, Mr Al-Arouri’s testimony would benefit Israel greatly by giving Israel a pretext for rationalizing their war crimes against the people of Gaza. Should it surprise us that this same supposedly dangerous Hamas “terrorist” spent time in Israel prison years prior for the crime of “terrorism” while being eventually let out of prison to carry on with his life? His life apparently includes returning to Hamas to be a dangerous terrorist and, while he’s at it, aiding Israel in the process?

What’s going on here is obvious to anyone paying attention. These are fake pick-your-boogie-monster games where only a specific terror group is useful for political reasons. It’s important that ISIS is a threat only to the U.S. somehow while somehow not posing a threat to Israel. In this new world order long term Middle East script it is important that the democratically elected government of Hamas is portrayed as a threat to Israel ONLY, and no one else, while ISIS is only a threat to the U.S. despite that fact that it’s all the way on the other side of the world. Sounds crazy? In fact in one article from Gatestone Institute, writer Alan Dershowitz actually says it- “ISIS is to America as Hamas is to Israel”. This is the perfect propaganda script for the U.S.-Israeli empire to implement their Middle East plans. A plan where super dangerous terror groups (or sovereign nations accused of being dangerous terrorists) only attack the specific countries required for them to fit into the Middle East and PNAC plans and no one else. How convenient huh?

So while another week comes and goes and ISIS still exists. While the mainstream media ISIS stories have died down giving early ISIS Al Qaeda-like staying power. As I’ve mentioned in previous articles, the ISIS psyop is in its final phase which involves simply the prolongation of ISIS. To review this important point, the western mainstream media and the Pentagon have to keep ISIS around to be used as a tool to accomplish their plans and the strategy to prolong the (perceived) existence of ISIS consists of 3 steps (IMO):

1. Periods of silence (like we’re seeing now) involving less talk about ISIS to get everyone’s mind off of ISIS for a while. These periods of non-ISIS talk will buy ISIS more time to exist and slowly these periods will get longer. This will condition ISIS into the minds of the blind sheep who by now have fully integrated ISIS into their subconscious. The average sheeple right now couldn’t imagine a world without ISIS even if they tried. That’s how deep mass hypnosis works BTW.

2. Another tactic to be used to prolong the existence of ISIS is making them seem like they are always growing and recruiting. Notice how often media focuses on ISIS ‘recruiting’ stories? It’s not enough that ISIS can take on multiple countries in battle on multiple global fronts while sustaining themselves militarily and with crucial daily supplies, but they also have time to take off from their incredible video production and internet social media skills to launch a worldwide recruiting campaign. All of this while they fight in multiple global fronts … while winning!

3. Thirdly ISIS will be prolonged by the convenience of not being taken out by any of the militarily powerful nations who can take them down including U.S., Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and others who could easily eliminate ISIS in a day or two, especially if they worked together. This shocking non-willingness to attack and eliminate ISIS (which might be the greatest story) is what we are seeing from not just the U.S. but now blatantly from Israel.

Israel, like they did with Gaza, is caught blatantly choosing to attack a sovereign nation (of Syria) instead of focusing their energy to attack global terrorism. Once again critical thinkers, activists, and independent minded individuals are left baffled at the contradictions of narratives coming out of western (Zionist controlled) mainstream media, and the actions of Israel and the U.S..

Will there ever come a day when we all say enough? A day when enough of us say enough? Will Israel continue to get away with war crimes forever? Will anyone ever confront the political leaders of Israel and try them for war crimes? Benjamin Netanyahu is a proven and known political war criminal so why isn’t anyone doing anything about it? Will modern day America ever come to grips with these war crimes perpetrated on Sovereign nations and clear violations of the Geneva Conventions? Will this western Zionist controlled mainstream media control the narrative forever? Must we live in hypnosis forever or will we ever mount the courage to see things as they are? Is the Orwellian spell forever or is there a mathematical chance of humanity waking up? How can we characterize all of this?

All of this is explained by propaganda. A simple research on the meaning of propaganda will help solve and answer all of these questions. It’s time for the world to wake up and see that Israel (like their U.S. partners) works with Al Qaeda and ISIS not against them. They would rather arm themselves and put the lives of their soldiers at risk to fight a sovereign nation like Syria who is in the way of their long term Middle East plans. As for ISIS and Al Qaeda and other terror groups, Israel has played a major role in the creation, operation and/or support of these organizations from day one. It’s time for Americans to see the U.S.-Israeli relationship for what it is. This goes back to before 9/11 and even before the PNAC plans.

The Israel factor can no longer be ignored. It’s staring us all in the face and this latest and most recent attack on Syrian air bases and “targets” is just a continuation of the Middle East takeover which is a precursor to the global takeover, the new world order global takeover. We cannot continue to ignore these huge landmark historic points in the advancement of the new world order AND expect to stop the new world order from coming to fruition.

The Beheading That Never Was? – The Kassig Killing And Western War Propaganda

kassig
By: Brandon Turbeville | Activist Post -

Currently trending alongside Kim Kardashian’s photo shoot, a Missouri declaration of a State of Emergency, and Charles Manson’s marriage, is the news of the recent alleged beheading of an American citizen by Western-backed ISIS terrorists in Syria.

The latest beheading video to allegedly emerge from ISIS reportedly shows the beheading of Peter Kassig, an “American aid worker” who was captured by the Western-backed fundamentalists in October of last year. Kassig was an Iraq veteran and former U.S. Army Ranger who later became an “aid worker” in Lebanon and Syria, according to USA Today.

Kassig’s family states that, while overseas, Kassig converted to Islam and changed his name to Abdul Rahman.

The video, which was released Sunday, is over 15 minutes long and contains a rather long propaganda buildup before showing the beheading of 12-18 Syrian soldiers.

The beheading of the Syrian soldiers, it should be noted, has received virtually no reporting except for an occasional line or two describing the lead up to Kassig’s beheading.

Kassig’s beheading is not actually shown, however. Toward the end of the video, “Jihadi John,” the ISIS member who has acted as the star of the series of beheading videos is pictured standing next to a severed human head which he claims belonged to Kassig.

If Kassig was indeed beheaded then his murder is without a doubt a tragedy and an act of savage brutality. But there is one thing lacking in the narrative provided by Western governments and their media mouthpieces regarding the beheading – evidence.

Unlike the staged Foley beheading which attempted to depict, albeit poorly, the first few moments of a decapitation, the Kassig beheading video is not a beheading video at all, but simply footage of a man standing next to a severed head that he claims belonged to Peter Kassig.

With the exception of Jihadi John’s word, we are left with nothing with which to confirm that the severed head was actually Kassig’s. Considering the track record of Western governments and the recent trail of beheading videos, however, we would be well within reason to question the veracity of the claims.

At this point, it is impossible for us to know whether or not the head shown in the video truly belonged to Kassig or even if Kassig was actually beheaded. Likewise, we cannot know for sure whether or not the victims preceding Kassig were truly beheaded, although we can say for sure that the depiction of the beheading shown on film was entirely staged.

What we do know, however, is that Kassig and his predecessors are being used for open propaganda purposes. In fact, all of the beheadings that have transpired beginning with the Foley video have been so conveniently timed to the needs and desires of the NATO agenda so as to preclude any reasonable suggestion that the videos themselves were anything other than propaganda.

Remember, when the United States was “debating” the idea of becoming more directly involved in Syria and Iraq, particularly in the form of bombing civilian and government infrastructure and openly funding the death squads they claim to be fighting, a video allegedly showing the beheading of James Foley was released resulting in widespread anger and indignation amongst a general public who were temporarily yanked away from reality TV long enough to view it.
Likewise, when the British seemed hesitant to directly join the imperialist bombing coalition, a video was released allegedly showing the beheading of a British citizen, Alan Henning, also causing widespread indignation amongst the public and shoring up support for British military involvement in Iraq and Syria.

When the French seemed hesitant to join the bombing, ISIS releases a third video of an alleged beheading of a Frenchman, which provided justification for French involvement.

Such convenient timing was also present when NATO was considering “targeted airstrikes” in Syria but were concerned about Assad’s sophisticated air defense systems. Shortly thereafter, ISIS managed to capture Taqba air base in Raqqa, Syria, eliminating the air defense systems in the entirety of the eastern part of the country.

This timing was present yet again when NATO once again began calling for a “No-Fly Zone,” “Buffer Zone,” or “Safe Zone.” Interestingly enough, during the debate over the possibility of the establishment of a “no-fly zone,” even members of Congress were beginning to question why a “no-fly zone” would be necessary in order to combat ISIS since ISIS had no air force. Conveniently, ISIS immediately seized a number of planes left over in the Syrian air fields and allegedly began flying them off the runway.

Either ISIS has the absolute dumbest public relations personnel in world history, or the actions of ISIS are directly controlled by NATO for propaganda, geopolitical, and military purposes. The timing of ISIS’ actions – always in line with the goals of the NATO faction of the world oligarchy – is clearly the result of the latter.

In addition, it is also important to point out that Kassig’s “humanitarian aid work” involves his founding of Special Emergency Response and Resistance, an NGO that is allegedly focused on “delivering aid” to areas that “larger organizations could not operate in.” Remember that NGOs have not only been responsible for a significant portion of the organization of death squads but also for the provision of medical help and other logistical assistance need to organize and facilitate the destabilization campaign.

That being said, one must mention that the SERR has received a large portion of funding from the NGO Conscience International, an international “aid” organization that receives its own funding from the National Endowment for Democracy.

It is also important to point out that Kassig himself has expressed sentiment that some would consider sympathetic to death squad fighters in Syria. In an interview with Syria Deeply, Kassig stated

Sometimes rebels want to know if I will help train people or if I will join the fight. I always tell them no. It is of course not that I do not feel terrible for the civilians that are suffering in Syria, but… for an American young man in my position that would be foolish, and regarded as such by pretty much everyone, including the opposition.

I can either be in a position to deliver tens of thousands of dollars of antibiotics for women and children, or I can be another young man with a gun.

Noting that he feels “terrible for the civilians that are suffering in Syria” and that his choices are essentially providing medicine or picking up a gun and joining the rebels, Kassig’s political leanings are relatively clear in that they express obvious sympathy for the death squads painted as “rebels” by the Western media.

Thus, one must ask the question of whether or not Kassig was yet another agent of Western destabilization working under the guise of an NGO and “aid organization.” From what little information is available, it appears that this possibility has fairly high odds of being true.

In the end, this video, which has been used to browbeat the American people and drum up support for yet another foreign military adventure, is set to be used to justify Western military invasion against Syria in the near future. Real or otherwise, it is hoped that the American people do not allow primitive propaganda to fool them into rushing to war on yet another occasion.

Reinventing Vietnam War History

vietnam war

Pentagon commanders initiated it. A duplicitous 2015 50th anniversary commemoration. Honoring one of history’s greatest crimes.

Turning truth on its head. Orwell explained saying “(h)e who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”

Pentagon web site headlines “The United State of America Vietnam War Commemoration.” Pentagon commanders glorify what demands condemnation.

Providing “the American public with (so-called) historically accurate materials and interactive experiences that will help Americans better understand and appreciate the service of our Vietnam War veterans and the history of US involvement in the Vietnam War.”

A Commemorative Partners Program “is designed for federal, state and local communities, veterans’ organizations and other nongovernmental organizations to assist a grateful nation in thanking and honoring our Vietnam Veterans and their families.”

Thanking them for mass murder. Involvement in genocidal high crimes against peace. Making the world safe for monied interests. More on this below.

In 1971, David Ellsberg released the Pentagon Papers. Officially titled “United States – Vietnam Relations, 1945 – 1967: A Study Prepared by the Department of Defense.”

Former Defense Secretary Robert McNamara commissioned it. Convinced America’s war was unwinnable.

Wanting an “encyclopedic history of the Vietnam War.” Preparing it was important for future scholars, he believed.

In 1969, it was completed. Examining Indochina policy from 1940 – 1968. Forty-seven volumes. Around 7,000 pages. Classified “Top Secret.”

Ellsberg believed winning was unlikely. Waging it was bad policy. Lawless. Immoral. Costing thousands of American lives. Millions of Southeast Asian ones. More on this below.

Convinced releasing the Pentagon Papers would make a difference, Ellsbergs did so at personal risk.

Explaining what everyone deserves to know. What Washington systematically suppressed. About secretly expanding Southeast Asia’s war. Lying publicly. Deceiving Congress.

Initially charged with conspiracy, espionage and theft of government property, charges against Ellsberg were later dropped. After information surfaced about White House Plumbers using lawless tactics to discredit him.

On May 11, 1973, an Oval Office recording caught Nixon saying:

“(T)he sonofabitching thief is made a national hero and is going to get off on a mistrial, and the New York Times gets a Pulitzer Prize for stealing documents…What in the name of God have we come to?”

In 1996, The Times said:

The Pentagon Papers “demonstrated, among other things, that the Johnson Administration had systematically lied, not only to the public, but also to Congress, about a subject of transcendent national interest and significance.”

The same Times later featuring Judith Miller’s Big Lies. About nonexistent Iraq WMDs.

Publicizing them in regular Pentagon press release handouts. Substituting for credible journalism.

Daily front page propaganda rubbish. A Noah’s Ark of scam artists promoting war.

Capped by a Pulitzer Prize. Responsible journalists want it rescinded. With full defrocking.

Times editors don’t apologize. They’re in lockstep with all US wars. Ongoing or planned. Legal or illegal. WW II was Washington’s last legitimate one.

Current ones rage with no end. More are planned. Permanent war is official US policy.

Obama has lots of death and destruction in mind. Media scoundrels support his worst crimes.

Ravaging, destroying and plundering one country after another. Millions of corpses attest to America’s barbarity.

No nation in world history did more harm to more people over a longer duration. None matched its savagery. Homicidal viciousness.

Ongoing without end. Risking the unthinkable. Possible global war. Mushroom cloud denouement. Armageddon.

Terror bombing is longstanding US practice. Targeting civilians and combatants alike.

Geneva and other international laws prohibit attacking non-combatants. Article 25 of the Laws of War: Laws and Customs of War on Land (1907 Hague IV Convention) states:

“The attack or bombardment, by whatever means, of towns, villages, dwellings, or buildings which are undefended is prohibited.”

Article 26 states “(t)he officer in command of an attacking force must, before commencing a bombardment, except in cases of assault, do all in his power to warn the authorities.”

Article 27 says “(i)n sieges and bombardments, all necessary steps must be taken to spare, as far as possible, buildings dedicated to religion, art, science, or charitable purposes, historic monuments, hospitals, and places where the sick and wounded are collected, provided they are not being used at the time for military purposes.”

The besieged should visibly indicate these buildings or places and notify an adversary beforehand.

Fourth Geneva protects civilians in time of war. Prohibiting violence in any form against them. Requiring treatment for sick and wounded.

In September 1938, a League of Nations unanimous resolution prohibited “bombard(ing) cities, towns, villages, dwellings or buildings not in the immediate neighborhood of the operations of land forces…”

“In cases where (legitimate targets) are so situated, (aircraft) must abstain from bombardment” if doing so indiscriminately harms civilians.

The 1945 Nuremberg Principles prohibit “crimes against peace, war crimes and crimes against humanity.”

Including “inhumane acts committed against any civilian populations, before or during the war.”

Indiscriminate killing. “(W)anton destruction of cities, towns, or villages, or devastation not justified by military necessity.”

The 1968 General Assembly Resolution on Human Rights prohibits attacks against civilian populations. America and Israel do it repeatedly. By land, sea and air.

Gabriel Kolko wrote the definitive Vietnam War history. His “Anatomy of a War: Vietnam, the United States, and the Modern Historical Experience” explains what everyone needs to know.

Imperial America’s objectives, strengths, weaknesses, quest for world dominance and miscalculations.

Washington installed the authoritarian Ngo Dinh Diem regime. It did so to build military strength, crush opposition, and gain a reliable ally.

In the 1950s, military advisors arrived. Escalation followed. Lyndon Johnson wanted war on Vietnam. He got it.

The August 1964 false flag Gulf of Tonkin incident initiated full-scale conflict. It raged after Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution.

Authorizing war without declaring it. It’s longstanding US tradition. Big lies launch them.

Manufactured pretexts initiate them. Mass killing and destruction follow. It bears repeating. Vietnam remains one of history’s greatest crimes.

In February 1965, Operation Thunder began. War without mercy. Raging through October 1968. For 44 months.

Targeting and indiscriminate bombings. Using over one million tons of ordnance. At issue was destroying Vietnam’s economy. Its will to resist.

Curtailing help reaching southern-based National Liberation Front (Viet Cong) fighters.

Over the course of war from 1965 – 1973, eight million tons of bombs were dropped.

Threefold WW II’s tonnage. Around 300 tons for every Vietnamese man, woman, child, infant, the elderly and infirm.

Napalm was used. Other incendiary devices. Terror weapons. Anti-personnel cluster bombs.

Spewing thousands of metal pellets. Hitting everything in their path. Indiscriminate land mines claiming victims to this day.

War targeted Cambodia and Laos. From March 1969 through May 1970. Nixon ordered secret bombings. Without consulting Congress.

Allegedly to destroy North Vietnamese and Viet Cong sanctuaries. Around 3,500 sorties were flown.

About 600,000 deaths followed. Mostly civilians. Helping Khmer Rouge elements gain power in 1975.

Cambodia was bombed with over 500,000 tons of ordnance. Until August 1973.

Over 25,000 US ground forces invaded. Dozens of towns, villages and hamlets were destroyed. Many thousands more were killed. Mostly peasants.

In harm’s way. In the line of fire. In the wrong country at the wrong time.

A 1962 Geneva Accord recognized Laos as a neutral state. Banning foreign military personnel from its territory.

Reality was much different. From 1965 – 1973, America flew around 580,000 sorties. Dropping over two million tons of ordinance.

The equivalent of a planeload of bombs every eight minutes. Round-the-clock for nine years.

At issue was destroying North Vietnamese so-called Ho Chi Minh Trail supply lines. Targeting the Pathet Lao government. North Vietnam’s army controlling eastern provinces.

Secret bombings again were used. So were terror weapons. Including napalm, white phosphorous and cluster bombs.

Millions of unexploded bomblets remained. Buried in fields, roads, forests, villages and rivers.

Around one-third of Laos’s 6.5 million people were killed, injured or displaced. Southeast Asia’s wars were devastating.

Killing three to four million. Causing mass destruction. Incalculable human suffering to this day.

On August 10, 1961, America began spraying Agent Orange in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Operation Ranch Hand waged herbicidal warfare for 10 years.

Around 20,000 sorties were flown. Other spraying was done from boats, trucks, or soldiers mounted with backpacks.

Over five million acres were contaminated. About 20% of South Vietnam was sprayed at least once.

Millions of gallons of dioxin-containing defoliant were used across vast areas. Concentrations were 50 times greater than for other defoliation purposes. Horrific consequences followed.

Dioxin is one of nature’s most deadly substances. It’s both natural and man-made. It’s a potent carcinogenic human immune system suppressant. Minute amounts cause serious health problems and death.

Agent Orange kills! It accumulates in adipose tissue and the liver. It alters living cell genetic structures.

Exposure results in congenital disorders and birth defects. It causes cancer, type two diabetes, and numerous other diseases.

In 2009, the US Institute of Medicine reported evidence linking Agent Orange to soft-tissue sarcoma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia (including hairy-cell leukemia), Hodgkin’s disease, and chloracne.

It’s associated with prostate cancer, multiple myeloma, amyloidosis (abnormal protein deposits), Parkinson’s disease, porphyria cutanea tarda (a blood and skin disorder), ischemic heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, peripheral neuropathy, cancer of the larynx, lung, bronchea and trachea, as well as spina bifida in offspring of exposed parents.

Vietnam’s Red Cross links it to liver cancer; lipid metabolism disorder; reproductive abnormalities; development disabilities; paralysis; and congenital deformities like cleft lip, cleft palate, club foot, hydrocephalus, neural tube defects, fused digits, and muscle malformations.

Dioxin remains toxic for decades. It’s not water soluble. Nor easily degradable. It contaminates soil, foliage, air and water.

It can be inhaled, absorbed through skin, or gain bodily entry through eyes, ears, or other cavity passages. It enters the food chain. Crops, plants, animals, and sea life are poisoned.

Its effects killed millions of Southeast Asians. Many others were disabled and/or suffer from chronic illnesses. Future generations are affected like earlier ones.

Around three million US servicemen and women were harmed. So were many American civilians. Many died. Living victims suffer from diseases, birth defects, and other ill effects.

Agent Orange use was always controversial. Studies confirmed its enormous harm. Ecocide and genocide best describe it. Human studies provided damning evidence.

In the early 1970s, Vietnam veterans reported skin rashes, cancer, psychological symptoms, birth defects, and other health problems.
Victims perish to this day.

Depleted uranium (DU) contamination began in the 1970s. US forces used DU freely since America’s Gulf war. Including dirty bombs, shells, missiles, and other munitions.

DU and other toxic weapons are illegal under international law. The 1925 Geneva Protocol and subsequent Geneva Weapons Conventions prohibit use of chemical and biological agents in any form.

The 1925 Geneva Convention Gas Protocol prohibits poison gas. The 1907 Hague Convention bans use of any “poison or poisoned weapons.”

Dioxin kills. DU is radioactive and chemically toxic. The US code, Title 50, Chapter 40, Section 2302 prohibits use of “weapons of mass destruction,” saying:

“The term ‘weapon of mass destruction’ means any weapon or device that is intended, or has the capability, to cause death or serious bodily injury to a significant number of people through the release, dissemination, or impact of (A) toxic or poisonous chemicals or their precursors, (B) a disease organism, or (C) radiation or radioactivity.”

America’s use is lawless. Doing so constitutes war crimes. Millions of combatants and civilians were irreparably harmed or killed. In current US direct and proxy wars, others are affected daily.

Washington wants its toxic legacy buried. Its high crimes against peace forgotten.

Whitewashed from history. Reinvented to make America’s ugly past look respectable.

Survivors won’t ever forget. Nor should they. Including Vietnamese sufferers. Permanently disabled US war veterans. Many on both sides enduring chronic illnesses.

They want truth and full disclosure maintained. Nothing erased from history. Or reinvented to ignore what happened.

One of history’s greatest crimes. Nameless, faceless victims suffering to this day out of sight and mind understand best.

7 Reasons To Doubt Latest “Holocaust” Claims Against Assad

Perpetual War_freda-366x220
By: Brandon Turbeville | Activist Post
As the United States and its NATO allies openly eye the possibility of establishing a “buffer zone” and/or a “no-fly zone” inside Syria, a volley of media reports alleging yet more “crimes against humanity” by Bashar Al-Assad are emerging in the mainstream news.

Coming at just the right time to ignite outrage and indignation in the dazed American public, as virtually every other report and “incident” in Syria has attempted to do since 2010, an alleged “Syrian defector” has allegedly provided thousands of photographs revealing what mainstream propagandists are calling a “smoking gun” of Assad’s humanitarian crimes.

The alleged defector, who only goes by the name “Caesar,” spoke in front of a closed-door session of the House Foreign Affairs Committee in late July, 2014.

The photos, which are supposed to number in the tens of thousands are now being “analyzed” by the Federal Bureau of Investigation at the request of the Ambassador-At-Large For War Crimes, Steven J. Rapp.

Rapp stated in an interview that the photos are “horrific — some of them put you in visceral pain. This is some of the strongest evidence we’ve seen in the area of proof of the commission of mass atrocities.”

Rapp, apparently intending to head off any suggestions that the photos may be either fakes or photos of some other atrocity perhaps committed by the death squads armed, trained, funded, and directed by NATO, the Ambassador has claimed that the FBI assured him that they think it is impossible that the photographs could be forgeries. Rapp says that the FBI assured that there is no evidence of doctoring. This, of course, is quite a bizarre conclusion to reach since the investigation is not yet over. Thus, one must wonder if the FBI had determined the veracity of the photographs before even opening the packages they came in.

As Michael Isikoff writes for Yahoo! News, 

The story behind the photos begins in March 2011, when Arab Spring protests against the Assad government swept through Syria. As the military began rounding up suspected dissidents, Caesar — a military police officer — was assigned to lead a team of 11 photographers whose job it was to document the deaths of detainees brought to a military hospital from three detention centers around Damascus.

But by the summer of 2013, Caesar has told investigators, he was so sickened by what he was seeing that he made contact with Syrian rebels. “I can’t do this anymore,” he told them, according to David Crane, a former war-crimes prosecutor for Sierra Leone who spent hours interviewing Caesar as part of a separate review of the photos commissioned by the government of Qatar.

[…]

Caesar began smuggling his photos to the rebels, providing them with thumb drives concealed in his shoes, Crane said. To protect his family, Caesar faked his death, staging an elaborate funeral, before he escaped from Syria in August 2013. He is now in hiding in Europe.

The photos, according to Crane, document “an industrial killing machine not seen since the Holocaust.” They show corpses, some of them lined up in a warehouse, many appearing to be victims of starvation, their ribs protruding from emaciated bodies.

The Syrian government has denied most of the photos as fake and has stated that it believes many of them to be pictures of dead terrorists who were killed in battle. The Syrian government’s suggestions are entirely plausible and, indeed, quite likely to be true. Remember, NATO has already attempted to frame the Assad government for a number of war crimes and atrocities that later turned out to be the handiwork of the terrorists funded by NATO itself. The Ghouta chemical weapons attack, the famous Houla massacre, and a number of other atrocities all come to mind instantly.

Unfortunately, in a gross insult to the victims of the Nazis, the Holocaust museum is placing a number of these photographs on display for propaganda purposes, an obvious attempt to dredge up memories of the Holocaust and paint Assad as the new Hitler.

Such ridiculous comparisons were made the first and second time this cynical display of propaganda was pushed in mainstream media outlets.

As it was then, there remain a number of reasons to question the photographs, reports, and “defectors” presenting the “smoking gun” against Assad now.

1.) The Gulf State Feudal Monarchy Qatar is the sponsor of one of the main reports and “reviews” of the photographs. Qatar is, of course, one of the major sponsors of the Syrian invasion (aka the Syrian “rebels”) and has played a massively important role in financing, training, arming, and directing the death squads currently being mopped up by the Assad government.

2.) The source of the report and photographs. One would be justified in questioning the nature of the reports and photos since the sole source of the material comes by virtue of an allegedly “defected Syrian military police officer” who was apparently fine with photographing thousands of dead victims for over a year until now. Regardless of the possibility for such a “moral” conversion, taking information from a “defected” member of government forces once again returns us to the realm of the “ activists say ” school of journalism – a notorious method used by Western media outlets to promote the side of the death squads and only the side of the death squads as fact in popular reports. Note that “Caesar” himself claims that he was in touch with the Syrian opposition, meaning terrorist death squads and cannibal savages funded by the West. Apparently, he thought these murderers as a better option than Assad. If so, that perspective tells us much about the allegiances and affiliations of “Caesar.”

3.) “Caesar” reminiscent of “Curveball.” We cannot forget the famous Codename, “Curveball” that played a major role in the initiation of a previous and still ongoing conflict that was later admitted to be a fabrication. Being fooled by the same type of propaganda twice in eleven years is indeed a humiliation too great for a country to bear.

4.) Past claims of Assad’s “Crimes Against Humanity.” It is important to remember past experiences with Western charges against Assad for alleged “crimes against humanity,” all of which turned out to have been committed by the death squads, not the Syrian government. From the Houla massacre to the Ghouta chemical weapons attacks , the Syrian government has been exonerated by all credible evidence. The death squads, however, have been proven guilty by virtue of their own video tapes and YouTube accounts , of some of the most horrific acts imaginable. While many innocent people have no doubt been killed in the crossfire between the military and the death squads, the Western media has done everything in its power to place the blood of each and every death inside Syria in the hands of the government.

5.) Possibility that the death squads could have killed the victims shown in the photographs, that the death squads are themselves the victims, or that the photographs contain a mix of the two. The victims shown in the report have clearly been abused and starved. However, before jumping to conclusions about just how these unfortunate individuals met their fate, perhaps it would be a good idea to look back at the context of the victims. As mentioned earlier, the death squads operating in Syria are no strangers to crimes against humanity, murder, and torture. In fact, they have been both the initiators of such depravity and overwhelmingly the largest proprietors of it.

Furthermore, the fact that the victims were starved does not necessarily mean that they were starved by the government. Indeed, it is important to remember that, due to the siege of a number of cities by both the military and the death squads as well as due to death squad cruelty and attempted cordoning off of specific areas, food shortage has been a serious concern in some areas for some time. There is also plentiful evidence of death squad groups killing innocent people and shipping their bodies to the places where cameras are set up, waiting for the recording of the propaganda piece. The Ghouta chemical attack is just one instance in which innocent civilians were captured and killed by the death squads and used as stage props for propaganda purposes .

Indeed, it is also important to remember that the death squads themselves are quite adept at keeping prisoners in atrocious conditions. Remember, it was reported not too long ago that the Syrian military was able to free a number of captive Syrian women from the hands of the death squads who had kept them in captivity in underground tunnels for months on end for the purposes of using them as sex slaves.

6.) The photographs were conveniently released just two days before the Geneva II Peace Conference meeting on Syria the first time. Now they are conveniently released as the United States and NATO are considering a “Buffer Zone” in Syria.

After the retraction of an invitation to Iran to attend the peace conference, the Qatari-funded report regarding the photographs was released just two days before the peace conference was scheduled to take place. With such evidence being studied and analyzed and a report being compiled, to believe that it was only a coincidence that the information was released two days before the conference is absurd. If this evidence was real and of such grave importance why did world leaders only learn of it days before the peace conference? If world leaders knew, why did it take so long to hear about it?

Now, as the United States and NATO eye a no-fly zone in Syria, the photographs are being recycled complete with the requisite Hitler references during the run-up to the implementation of the “buffer zone.”

The convenience of this report for the NATO and GCC agenda to destroy Syria and overthrow Assad is such that precludes its honesty.

7.) Involvement of Color Revolution NGOs. “Caesar’s” entire trip to the United States has been organized and facilitated by the Coalition For A Democratic Syria , an organization that has very close ties with the National Democratic Institute (NDI), a subsidiary of the National Endowment for Democracy, both groups being notorious color revolutions operations. The NDI website states that:

NDI works with a number of established political parties and emerging movements on party development and organizational structure. The Institute’s partners include: the Damascus Declaration; the People’s Party; Building the Syrian State; the Kurdish Youth Tanseekiyat Union; the Ahrar Party; the Muslim Brotherhood; the Democratic Platform; the National Change Trend; the Syrian Democratic Coalition; and the Yekiti party, as well as many others.

It is also notable that the SDC’s website contains a number of pictures of Syria with the Green, White and Black flag of the death squads and their smokescreen “moderate” faction instead of the real Red, White, and Black flag of the Syrian government.

The NDI website also admits funding terrorists in Syria albeit through very couched terms. It says,

NDI has built long-term partnerships with Syrian organizations since 2005, working with more than 1,200 Syrian democrats in an extensive network of civil society leaders and opposition activists. Through 2010, NDI assisted a Damascus-based civil society organization and resource center, Etana Press, in assessing the needs of civil society in Syria and building resources and knowledge to meet those needs. Since the beginning of the Syrian conflict in 2011, NDI has intensified its assistance to opposition activists seeking democratic reform.

Considering all of the information provided in this article, taken in conjunction with the “convenient” timing of the release of the reports and the photographs (convenient, at least, for the enemies of Syria), as well as the fact that NGOs, color revolution organizations, and shadowy “defectors” are providing the information, such reports and photographs should be taken with a large grain of salt.

The Western media has not only been wrong, but has lied on so many occasions in the past, that it cannot be expected to tell the truth now.

Propaganda War On Islamic State Militants

isis

Washington uses ISIS/ISIL/Islamic state (IS), Nusra Front, Al Qaeda and likeminded groups strategically as enemies and allies. At times, simultaneously.

In the 1980s, CIA-recruited mujahideen fighters battled Afghanistan’s Soviet occupiers.

Ronald Reagan called them “the moral equivalent of our founding fathers.” They’re today’s Taliban, despite distinct differences between them.

Longstanding US support enhanced radical Islamic strength. Extremist groups were natural Cold War allies.

Zbigniew Brzezinski had Jimmy Carter sign a secret July 3, 1979 directive. It promised covert aid to Afghan pro-Soviet regime opponents.

Brezinski said Moscow intervention would follow. “What is most important to the history of the world,” he asked?

“The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?”

“The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter. We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war.”

“Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.”

Today’s Taliban gave America its second Vietnam war. Perhaps currently radical Islamist allies will do so in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere.

The fullness of time will tell. Currently they’re used strategically against America’s enemies.

US special forces and CIA operatives fund, arm, train and direct them in Jordan and Turkey. Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are involved.

They’re sent cross border to Syria. Its porous border with Iraq lets them control large parts of both countries.

A previous article explained Obama’s phony war on Islamic State militants They’re US proxies. Shock troops. Foot soldiers. Boots on the ground.

They’re taught effective ways to kill. Dirty ways. Using chemical weapons. Committing atrocities. Including beheadings and other barbarian acts.

Syrian targets struck include vital infrastructure, oil facilities, grain silos, empty buildings, residential homes and noncombatant men, women and children.

In the 1980s, media scoundrels praised radical Islamists. Today, they’re vilified. More on this below.

The State Department’s Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications (CSCC) focuses heavily against what it calls an Islamic State threat.

“We believe countering our adversaries” through social media “is crucial,” it said. “We must contest the space by confronting distortion with reality and lies with truth,” it claimed.

CSCC spends millions annually “coordinat(ing), orient(ing), and inform(ing) government-wide foreign communications activities targeted against terrorism and violent extremism.”

It challenges “extremist propaganda in previously uncontested digital space,” it says. It does so with much of its own.

At stake is redrawing the Middle East may. Balkanizing it. Restoring colonial rule. Plundering regional resources. Exploiting its people. Eliminating Israeli rivals.

First by ousting Assad. Replacing him with pro-Western stooge governance. Isolating Iran. Restoring pre-1979 rule. Defeating Hezbollah and containing Hamas.

Propaganda war on Islamic State militants rages. Fear-mongering hypes Big Lies. MSM scoundrels repeat them.

Truth is systematically buried. Deception substitutes for reality.  Nonexistent threats make headlines. Regurgitated ad nauseam gets most people to believe them.

Homeland Security officials lied. They manufactured fear-mongering intelligence. They claim a nonexistent IS plot to enter America through Mexico.

Saying so doesn’t rise to the level of bad fiction. Obama ludicrously said the main reason for battling IS is to protect America’s heartland.

Media scoundrels repeat this rubbish. Gullible people believe it. Hyperbole substitutes for reality.

It’s daily MSM fare. It buries truth. It substitutes lies, damn lies and Big Lies. They masquerade as legitimate news, information and analysis.

Headlines hype a Khorasan Group threat. It’s more fiction than fact. It’s fake.

Irresponsible fear-mongering claims otherwise. It proliferates. It gets Americans to believe nonsense. A planned major attack against European and/or US targets, it claimed.

Media scoundrels regurgitate this rubbish ad nauseam. Without challenging it. Without demanding verifiable evidence.

Without refusing to publish without it. Without reporting what readers and viewers most need to know.

State-sponsored propaganda substitutes. Big Lies bury hard truths. The New York Times is a machine for manufacturing lies.

On October 3, it gave op-ed space to former US Syrian ambassador Robert Ford. He took full advantage. He headlined “Remember Our Syrian Allies.”

He claimed nonexistent moderate “Syrian rebels (are) furious that (Washington) had not (directly) targeted the Assad government…”

He lied claiming it “killed far more Syrian civilians than” IS fighters and likeminded groups. He wrongfully accused Assad’s government of “atrocities.”

He ignored horrendous ones radical Islamists commit. Targeting civilians. Murdering them in cold blood. Using chemical weapons. Torture and other high crimes against peace.

He quoted so-called Free Syrian Army stooge leaders demanding attacks focus on “the forces of tyranny and the patrons of extremism represented by the Assad regime.”

Syrians overwhelmingly support Assad. On June 3, they reelected him president with a near 89% majority.

They want no one else leading them. Independent monitors called Syria’s process open, free and fair.

It shames America’s sham process. Monied interests control things. Republicans and Democrats are two sides of the same coin.

Not a dime’s worth of difference separates them on issues mattering most. Voters have no say.

They get the best democracy money can buy. It’s in name only. It’s nonexistent.

Ford wants stepped up US support for anti-Assad militants. Most are non-citizens or ex-pats. They’re recruited from dozens of countries.

They invaded Syria. They did so lawlessly. Syria is Obama’s war. He launched it in March 2011. There’s nothing civil about it.

Insurgents are Washington proxies. Key NATO partners, rogue Arab League states, and Israel are very much involved.

Most Syrians deplore violence. They oppose elements committing it. Waging war with imported proxies isn’t civil.

Washington bears full responsibility. Assad provides Syria’s last line of defense.

He’s battling foreign invaders. He’s acting responsibly doing so. What any leader should do. Nothing less is acceptable.

Syrians depend on his protection. He provides it best he can. Without it things would be far worse.

Syria would be like Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya in perpetuity. Violence, instability, insecurity and unspeakable human misery without end.

Don’t expect Ford to explain. Or Times editors publishing his rubbish. So-called “moderate fighters” he cites don’t exist.

Washington supports the worst of Islamic extremists. They’re proxies against Assad. US special forces and CIA agents teach them the fine art of brutal killing.

Waging war without mercy. Using chemical weapons. Inflicting barbarism of the worst kind. Committing genocidal high crimes against peace. Going all out lawlessly to oust Assad.

Replacing him with what the vast majority of Syrians reject. Doing so without their say. Imperialism works this way. Conquest, control, plunder and exploitation matter most.

Ford is part of America’s dirty system. He’s currently a Middle East Institute senior fellow. It’s an establishment think tank.

Retired General Anthony Zinni chairs its board. It’s in lockstep with US foreign policy. Imperial lawlessness defines it.

Ford supports ravaging and destroying Syria. As former US ambassador, he’s complicit in high crimes against peace.

He’s an unindicted war criminal. Responsible editors wouldn’t touch his rubbish. Times ones featured it. They did so disgracefully.

They’re propagandists, not journalists. They support generous aid for anti-Assad elements. They want him lawlessly ousted.

They acted the same way against Afghanistan’s Taliban, Saddam’s nonexistent WMDs and Gaddafi most Libyans supported for good reason.

They consistently endorse lawlessness. They ignore core international, constitutional and US statute law provisions.

They back what demands condemnation. They betray their readers in the process. They do so unapologetically.

On October 2, they headlined “The Fundamental Horror of ISIS.” They ignored what readers most need to know.

It bears repeating. It’s a US creation. It’s used strategically against America’s enemies. It’s trained, armed, funded and directed to do so.

Don’t expect Times editors to explain. Big Lies substitute for hard truths. “The mind rebels at the reports of (IS) cruelty,” they said.

Their “beheadings, crucifixions, tortures, rapes and slaughter of captives, children, women, Christians, Shiites.”

Atrocities US operative taught them to commit. The fine art of war without mercy. Times editors never quit.

“Even in a part of the world where terror has been perversely enshrined as a legitimate weapon by Islamist zealots, the Islamic State…stands alone in its deliberate, systematic and public savagery,” they said.

They hyperventilated over savage beheadings. “Raw evil,” they called it.

They practically urged using them as a pretext for war. “The Islamic State seems a model of remorseless clarity,” they said.

“We have not seen the last of its horrors. They want it degraded and destroyed.

They want Assad ousted most of all. Mass slaughter and destruction are small prices to pay.

Imperial dominance matters most. Times editors endorse it wholeheartedly. They do so every time America goes to war on plans one.

They mock legitimate journalism doing so. They violate its core ethical standards.

They support wealth, power and privilege. They shame the profession they’re part of.

It bears repeating. They do so unapologetically. Disgracefully. They betray their readers in the process.

Obama’s Phony War On Islamic State Militants

obama

Obama murders civilian men, women and children he calls militants. Terrorists. Eyewitnesses explain otherwise. More on this below.

He lied claiming he’ll degrade and destroy IS’s fighting capability. He supports it instead. Previous articles explained.

They’re US proxies. Shock troops. Foot soldiers. Boots on the ground. US special forces and CIA operatives train them in Jordan and Turkey.

They’re taught effective ways to kill. Dirty ways. Using chemical weapons. Committing atrocities. Including beheadings and other barbarian acts.

Syrian targets struck aren’t Islamic State ones. They include vital infrastructure, oil facilities, grain silos with food, empty buildings, residential homes and noncombatant men, women and children.

Exact numbers killed and injured aren’t clear. Various estimates differ. The toll rises daily.

On September 23, the Los Angeles Times headlined “Syrians say civilians killed in US airstrikes,” explaining:

Video evidence from Northwestern Syria “shows Idlib province residents going through motions that have become all too familiar in three years of civil war between antigovernment rebels and the forces of President Bashar Assad…”

They’re “surveying the remnants of flattened homes and picking through the debris.”

“This time” Washington bears full responsibility. One Syrian perhaps spoke for others, saying:

“Mass destruction (was inflicted on) civilian homes as a result of the strikes of the Western alliance on the civilians in the western Idlib suburbs. Look, it is all civilian homes.”

So-called Pentagon photographic evidence is fake. Claiming IS targets were struck is false.

Scores of so-called attacks against it in Iraq haven’t scratched its capability. Nor have they in Syria. Nor will they. Nor are they intended to. Obama lied claiming otherwise.

According to the Times:

Syrians say “as many as two dozen civilians were killed…” As of six days ago. Likely dozens more perished in daily strikes since then.

Washington considers civilians legitimate targets in all its wars. Millions perished in Afghanistan. Millions more in Iraq Wars I, II plus years of sanctions.

Libya claimed well over 100,000 lives. Perhaps double or triple that number. No one knows for sure.

Obama’s Iraq and Syrian wars may claim millions before they end. Washington doesn’t keep body counts. Independent sources estimate best they can.

Syrians fear US bombings for good reason. They’re in harm’s way. They’re afraid they’ll be struck.

One Syrian resident said IS fighters dispersed. So did other militants. They left areas likely to be targeted. Civilians suffered most casualties.

Lt. General William Mayville heads US Joint Chiefs of Staff operations. He lied claiming no knowledge “of any civilian casualties.”

He’s fully briefed on daily operations. “If any reports of civilian casualties emerge, we will fully investigate,” he said.

So-called Pentagon investigations cover up, deny and obfuscate. It’s longstanding operational procedure.

It suppresses crimes of war and against humanity. It conceals dirty war. Its atrocities. Without mercy. Without restraint. Without regard for rule of law principles, standards and norms.

On September 28, Human Rights Watch (HRW) headlined “US/Syria: Investigate Possible Unlawful US Strikes,” saying:

Idlib airstrikes killed at least eight civilians. They “should be investigated for possible violations of the laws of war.”

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby lied, claiming “no credible reporting from operational sources” of civilian deaths. Syrians able to observe dead men, women and children explained otherwise.

“Three local residents told Human Rights Watch that missiles killed at least two men, two women, and five children, in the early morning hours on September 23 in the village of Kafr Deryan in northern Idlib,” said HRW.

US wars normalize the unthinkable. Civilian lives don’t matter. Crimes of war and against humanity are considered collateral damage.

Residents said missiles struck two homes in Kafr Deryan. They killed at least five children, two women and two men…”

According to HRW: “The reported killing of at least seven civilians in strikes in which there may have been no legitimate military target nearby raises concerns that the strikes were unlawful under the laws of war and should be investigated.”

Expect whitewash instead. It’s standard US practice. Hegemons don’t admit culpability. Or say they’re sorry. They blame victims for their crimes.

Residents said “there were no Jabhat al-Nusra buildings, checkpoints, or vehicles in the vicinity of the strike in the village,” said HRW,

Pentagon officials knew it. They spent weeks gathering intelligence. Choosing targets.

Striking homes with civilians shows contempt for human lives. It shows America wages dirty wars. It kills indiscriminately.

Its sanctimonious objectives are false. Hypocritical. Big Lies. War crimes and then some. Expect lots more ahead.

HRW listed victims by names. They weren’t terrorists. They were innocent victims in harm’s way.

“Video footage posted on YouTube on September 23 by a local activist who spoke to Human Rights Watch shows some of the civilians injured in the strikes and the aftermath of the attacks,” said HRW.

“Another video posted by the Shaam News Network showed three children, two who appear to have been killed, and one who appears to have been injured in the missile strikes.”

“An additional video, posted on YouTube by the local activist who spoke to Human Rights Watch, shows two children being rushed to receive medical treatment in the aftermath of the attack, and another shows an adult victim being pulled out of the rubble.”

A Kafr Deryan resident said “six additional civilians – three children and three women – were also killed in the strikes on the villages but Human Rights Watch was unable to verify this claim,” according to HRW.

“He said that approximately 15 others, including women and children, were injured.”

Three Kafr Deryan residents said “civilians were all killed when missiles struck their homes directly, and two of the residents said they had seen weapons remnants at the site of the destroyed homes, suggesting that the strikes directly caused the fatalities,” according to HRW.

Another said “he was at the scene of the attack on the two residences about 10 minutes after the strikes and that he and other activists collected the remnants from the weapons used in the strikes and videotaped them and posted some of the footage of the aftermath of the strikes on YouTube.”

HRW said it “reviewed his footage and has identified the remnants as debris of a turbofan engine from a Tomahawk cruise missile, a weapon that only the US and British governments have.”

“Witness accounts suggest that the attack on the village harmed civilians but did not strike a military target, violating the laws of war by failing to discriminate between combatants and civilians, or that it unlawfully caused civilian loss disproportionate to the expected military advantage,” it added.

“The US government should investigate credible allegations of violations of the laws of war, such the strikes on Kafr Deryan, and publish its findings…”

“In the event of wrongdoing, the United States should ensure accountability and provide appropriate redress.”

“Further, the United States should take all feasible precautions to minimize harm to civilians in future attacks.”

Obama ordered Iraqi and Syrian airstrikes lawlessly. He did so preemptively. With no legal authority.

No Security Council approval. No congressional declaration of war. No adversary threatening America. Doing so constitutes high criminality against peace.

Indiscriminately killing noncombatant men, women and children adds more high crimes to his rap sheet. He’s guilty as charged.

He remains unaccountable. He operates this way. He gives rogue leadership new meaning. He’s unapologetic. He blames victims for his crimes.

Expect lots more mass slaughter and destruction before his Iraqi and Syrian wars end. High crimes against peace. The supreme crime. Genocide. It’s the American way.

Fear-Mongering Ahead Of Another US False Flag?

terror threat level

Fear-mongering is sinister. It’s reprehensible. It’s longstanding US policy. So are false flags.

Merriam-Webster calls them “deliberate gross distortion(s) of the truth used especially as a propaganda tactic.”

Wikipedia says they’re “covert operations designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities.”

Official reports hype Big Lies. MSM scoundrels regurgitate them. Truth is systematically buried. Deception substitutes for reality.

False flags are pretexts for militarism, wars, occupations, colonization, resource theft, and exploiting populations for profit.

They facilitate ruthlessness. They foster police state repression against freedom.

Post-9/11, global war on terror lawlessness followed. It rages out-of-control. One country after another is ravaged, destroyed and pillaged.

No end of conflicts loom. Permanent war is official US policy.

Big Lies hype nonexistent threats. Regurgitated ad nauseam gets most people to believe them.

Obama, John Kerry and other top US officials lie. They do so repeatedly. They say ISIS/ISIL/IS intends attacking America. It poses a unique threat, they claim.

Homeland Security officials lied claiming “credible intelligence to suggest that there is an active plot by ISIL to attempt to cross the southern border” through Mexico.

John Kerry claims an “urgency to move on ISIL.” Chuck Hagel said it’s “beyond just a terrorist group.”

It’s “as sophisticated and well-funded as any group we have seen,” he says.

Joint Chiefs Chairman General Martin Dempsey calls IS a “trans-regional and global threat.”

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly compares IS to Hitler’s Nazis.

“The situation is almost identical to what happened in the 1930s, when Hitler and his Nazi thugs were gaining power,” he claims.

“There is no difference in the mentality of the Nazis and ISIS. They are identical in their hate and tactics.”

Hyperbole substitutes for reality. It’s US daily television fare. It’s fear-mongering writ large. It’s deadly deception. It ignores what everyone most needs to know.

IS a US creation. It’s used strategically as both ally and enemy.

US special forces and CIA operatives train, arm and direct its fighters in Jordan. Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are involved.

They’re sent cross border to Syria. They’re used to wage proxy war for regime change.

Big Lies conceal US policy. Its belligerence. Its objectives. Its lawless agenda.

Its longstanding war on humanity. Its quest for global dominance. Its willingness to risk world peace to achieve it.

How many previous times were so-called unique threats hyped? How often did US state terrorism follow?

How many premeditated wars? How much death, destruction and unspeakable human misery?

In late August 2013, John Kerry repeated Colin Powell’s infamous February 5, 2003 Security Council moment. It was shameless deception.

Plans were set. The die was cast. Weeks later, America bombed, invaded and occupied Iraq. The cradle of civilization was destroyed.

No WMDs existed. It was well-known. Powell knew. He lied claiming otherwise.

“(F)acts and Iraq’s behavior show that Saddam Hussein and his regime are concealing their efforts to produce more weapons of mass destruction,” he said.

“(E)very statement I make today is backed up by sources, solid sources. These are not assertions. What we’re giving you are the facts and conclusions based on solid intelligence.”

“The gravity of this moment is matched by the gravity of the threat that Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction pose to the world.”

None existed. Powell knew it. He lied. He suppressed vital truths. Doing so is longstanding US policy.

In September 2002, Bush national security advisor Condoleezza Rice claimed “no doubt that Saddam Hussein’s regime (posed) a danger to the United States and to its allies, to our interests.”

“(W)e have evidence, increasing evidence, that he continues his march toward weapons of mass destruction,” she said.

“(G)iven what we experienced on September 11, I don’t think anyone wants to wait for the 100% surety that (he’ll use them against America) because (we’ll only know for certain) when something lands on our territory.”

“We can’t afford to wait” for mushroom-shaped cloud certainty, Rice added.

No WMDs existed. No nuclear weapons program. No imminent mushroom-shaped cloud. No truth and full disclosure.

Big Lies substituted. Longstanding US policy features them. Willful deception facilitates planned imperial adventurism.

How much of a threat do Islamic militants pose? Does IS threaten America’s homeland?

It gets worse. On September 20, The New York Times hyped the latest Big Lie. It headlined “US Suspects More Direct Threats Beyond ISIS,” saying:

“(I)ntelligence and law enforcement officials said another Syrian group, led by a shadowy figure who was once among Osama bin Laden’s inner circle, posed a more direct threat to America and Europe.”

It’s called “Khorasan.” It “emerged in the past year” in Syria. It may plan striking “the United States or its installations overseas with a terror attack,” said The Times.

Unnamed officials say Muhsin al-Fadhli heads it. They called him “a senior Qaeda operative.”

“(H)e was among a small group of people who knew about the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks before they were launched.”

Fact check:

A previous article called 9/11 the mother of all Big Lies. Myths drowned out reality.

Bin Laden had nothing to do with it. Or so-called “crazed Arabs.” It was well-planned state-sponsored terrorism.

It was used to wage premeditated imperial wars. They’re ongoing. More are planned.

All wars are based on lies. Truth would out reasons for waging them. It would prevent them.

It would further peace. It would sabotage America’s imperial ambitions.

Little is known about Khorasan, said The Times. Unnamed “intelligence, law enforcement and military officials (claim It’s) made up of Qaeda operatives from across the Middle East, South Asia and North Africa.”

Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper said “in terms of threat to the homeland, Khorasan may pose as much of a danger as the Islamic State.”

Other US officials warn it’s more sinister. It intends striking overseas, they claim. They do so with no verifiable evidence.

An anonymous senior US law enforcement official said:

“What you have is a growing body of extremists from around the world who are coming in and taking advantage of the ungoverned areas and creating informal ad hoc groups that are not directly aligned with ISIS or Nusra.”

In 2012, State Department officials said al-Fadhi heads Al Qaeda’s Iranian branch. He controls regional “movement of funds and operatives.”

He does so from his native Kuwait. He works with wealthy “jihadist donors.” He supports Syrian opposition fighters.

James Phillips is a right-wing Heritage Foundation senior research fellow. He writes extensively on Middle East issues and international terrorism.

He hypes threats ad nauseam. He’s a Committee on the Present Danger member. CPD members include a rogue’s gallery of right-wing extremists.

Former CIA head James Woolsey, former Secretary of State George Shultz, and former senators Joe Lieberman and Jon Kyle are co-chairmen.

CPD’s mission is winning “the war on terror.” It supports America’s permanent war policy.

Phillips claims Khorasan recruits “European and American Muslim militants that form part of the rebel coalition fighting Syria’s Assad regime.”

“It hopes to train and deploy these groups, who hold American and European passports, for attacks against Western targets.”

He calls Khorasan Al Qaeda’s new arm against America. It’s allied with Al Nusra in Syria, says Phillips.

It conducts terrorist attacks abroad, he claims. It works with prominent Al Qaeda bomb maker Ibrahim al-Asiri, he says.

It intends supplying bombs to US and other foreign jihadists returning home, he maintains.

He provides no verifiable evidence backing his claims. It’s hard separating facts from fiction.

CPD has “one goal,” it says: “to stiffen American resolve to confront the challenge presented by terrorism and the ideologies that drive it.”

It hypes what it calls “the new ‘present danger’ – militant Islamism and the terrorism (it) spawn(s).”

“(M)ilitant Islamists seek to bend the world to their vision.”

“They are eager to attack – indeed, to kill – anyone who stands in their way.”

“In the face of this global threat, which transcends state borders and recognizes no law, complacency and ignorance are as dangerous as military weakness.”

CPD partners with likeminded groups. It promotes war. It deplores peace. It hypes threats.

It wants US interests defended at all costs. At the expense of all others.

Its ideologically over-the-top. It promotes conflicts and instability. It threatens world peace.

Its members include over 100 former right-wing White House officials, congressional members, cabinet secretaries, ambassadors and others.

Their mission is hyping threats. It’s fear-mongering. It’s creating enemies where none exist.

It’s promoting permanent wars on humanity. It’s going all-out to prevent peace and stability.

It’s up to ordinary people to challenge them. It’s exposing their dark side ideology.

Another world is possible with commitment. With unity. With solidarity. With participatory democracy. With social, economic and political justice.

With resisting capital’s divine right. With respecting fundamental freedoms. With popular struggles to protect them.

With supporting right over wrong. With government of, by and for everyone equitably and fairly. With ending imperial wars before they end us.

NDAA LEGALIZES USE OF PROPAGANDA/PSYOPS AGAINST AMERICAN CITIZENS

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYUUx…

Here is a PDF link update to the bill that was passed,
http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-11…

This amendment would legalize the use of propaganda on American audiences and was inserted into the latest defense authorization bill, This would “strike the current ban on domestic dissemination” of propaganda material produced by the State Department and the independent Broadcasting Board of Governors, according to the summary of the law at the House Rules Committee’s official website. This little change to the bill would essentially neutralize two previous acts—the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act in 1987—that had been passed to protect U.S. audiences from our own government’s misinformation campaigns.

The US government has for many decades been allowed to dish out propaganda to foreign countries. But now, through this bill, propaganda that was supposed to target foreigners could now be aimed at Americans, reversing a longstanding policy. Bill was finally passed as part of the National Defense Authorization Act [NDAA 2013] HR 4310, signed by Obama on 12/29/2012. Pages 326-328.

House Republican Introduces Bill That Would Give President ‘Dictatorial Powers’ To Wage War

bush obama
By: Nick Bernabe, D.C. Clothesline –  

Following the clear failure of the ‘War on Terror’, launched by George W. Bush following 9/11, the US will re-up it’s efforts, which have only seemed to cause an increase in terror operations around the world.

Members of Congress, including many within the President’s own party, are looking for more blood to be spilled in the Middle East. The two main fronts in the ‘War on Terror’ have failed horribly. Iraq is now a failed state, where instability following the US backed installation then deposition of Saddam Hussein has served as a breeding ground for radical Islamists, angry at the West’s decades-long corporate imperialist designs on the region. Add to that horrible equation a government propped up by US and other foreign interests that alienated a large portion of the Iraqi people. A third of the country has now fallen to radical elements, despite GW and Obama declaring only a few years ago that Iraq was won.

Afghanistan, destined for a very similar fate, is already falling back into the hands of the Taliban — our Soviet era allies Reagan called “freedom fighters,” turned sworn enemies, turned quiet diplomatic partners. Yeah I know, it’s confusing. Read this article we posted earlier today for an in depth look at the origins of the Taliban and how America helped create them.

The war on terror has done nothing but increase the threat from terrorism. Whether from foreign policy blowback or forcing the decentralization of terror groups, the fact is that ISIS and many other groups are more emboldened and powerful than ever, despite trillions of dollars and thousands of American lives lost to combating them. Due to the US strategy of targeting leaders for assassination rather than taking the wind out of terror movements by understanding how and why they are able to recruit new fighters, America’s anti-terror tactics have only made terrorism harder to defeat. Every time a leader is assassinated in a drone strike, the organizations split and become autonomous, making them harder to find and to predict. But these clear foreign policy failures have not slowed down Congress’ and the Administration’s march towards war.

After America ruined Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and countless others, it’s now setting it’s sights on Syria, and to a lesser extent, Ukraine; both allies of Russia.

Here is where things begin to get scary. Congress is just about ready to cede it’s power to declare war. While this isn’t something new, considering the last time America actually declared war was in WWII, it will give dictatorial powers to the Executive Branch to throw the country into any war as long as it’s against some form of terrorism (which is a tactic, not a group, army, or country). According to legislation announced yesterday by Congressman Frank Wolf, it will authorize,

“to use all necessary and appropriate force against those countries, organizations, or persons associated with or supporting terrorist groups, including al Qaeda and its regional affiliates, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, al Shabaab, Boko Haram, and any other emerging regional terrorist groups that share a common violent extremist ideology with such terrorist groups, regional affiliates, or emerging terrorist groups, in order to eliminate all such terrorist groups and prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States or its allies by such terrorist groups, countries, organizations, or persons.”

This is a dangerous, open ended, ceding of control away from the people, and into the hands of the President and his unelected foreign policy “experts”.

This will effectively take Congress out of the equation of waging war as long as the Executive Branch says it’s against terrorism. But Rep. Frank Wolf goes even further. According to The Daily Caller,

He also plans to introduce legislation repealing the 1973 War Powers Resolution, which mandates that only Congress can declare war, and requires the president to notify Congress at least 48 hours before committing U.S. forces to military action. Wolf’s bill says that the resolution “has not worked as intended, and has added to the divisiveness and uncertainty that exists regarding the war powers of the President and Congress.”

This legislation, which is similar to a bill proposed by war monger in chief John McCain earlier this year, will essentially remove all war powers from representatives and turn the President into a de facto emperor on foreign policy.

While most presidents since WWII have committed treason by blatantly ignoring the War Powers Act, there now seems to be an appetite in Congress to repeal the act and make waging unjust wars even easier for the President and his advisers.

Obama already violated the War Powers Act when he unilaterally toppled the Libyan government headed by Gaddafi, and we all see how well that worked out.

Americans should get serious about politicians violating the constitution such as that War Powers Act and have these ‘leaders’ prosecuted to fullest extent of the law. The consequence if we don’t will in all likelihood result in WWIII and millions more dead innocent people.

In the short term, this renewed push in the corporate media and the government for more war on terror should be resisted by every American. It has already been admitted that there is no strategy to combat ISIS; and the best prospects for peace in Iraq, as we have noted before, is to allow Iraqis to form an organic resistance to these ISIS brutes. Any US intervention, as seen in every single anti-terror operation we’ve been involved in the past two decades, will only result in more instability and more of a threat of terrorism. Not to mention more Americans dead and billions more in debt.

How To End The War Crimes In Gaza

israel war crimes

Some people may read this and say, no way, this is not a solution but I challenge your belief and I offer that this is indeed an effective and powerful way to move forward as a humanity with regard to the ongoing atrocities in Gaza.

Is there actually a way to end the war crimes in Gaza? There is, but the answer lies in our humanity not in politics, politicians, or a rigid ideology. Ideologies that result in human deaths are ideologies of hatred no matter how anyone spins it. We, as a humanity, must find a way of ending ideologies of hatred that serve political purposes. With acknowledgement of this first step we can then move forward to real solutions.

The first solution is to find a way to tone down, even mute mainstream media. Mainstream media is at the root of most political propaganda (which is now LEGAL) and deception. Politicians and warmongers would have no voice if it were not for mainstream media. Knowing this, we have to (as a humanity) reconsider everything we hear on mainstream media news. This really is a critical and core part of the solution in my opinion. As soon as people learn to turn off mainstream media news, then we can really begin to implement real solutions. People must realize that mainstream media is controlled by the CIA and the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) for political purposes. Try to understand the importance that mainstream media is to the globalists who control the world or, as some call it, the .1% (or the Illuminati). Look up Operation Mockingbird and listen to what former CIA operatives have admitted about how they control the media.

Until we can change or stop the control of the mainstream media (which may never happen) each person has to do whatever they can to share information with people they know that may contradict the messages being put out by the controlled mainstream media. Keep in mind that six corporations (all pro Zionist) actually own almost all of the mainstream media in the United States, so you will never get a balanced report on what is happening. For this, you will have to tune to alternative media and human rights-related platforms.

Most importantly think on your own. If you see something happening, ask yourself: would I tolerate this action in my own life? If you see atrocities being committed, condemn the atrocity regardless of who is doing it. Do what you can in order to find out who is funding the atrocity. (Like the CIA funding $$ ISIS in Iraq)

The people of Gaza have a right to exist and they have a right to not be murdered and have their homes destroyed. All human atrocities are the same. We must acknowledge human rights globally and not allow one country and corrupt politicians to control the narrative and use propaganda to condone war crimes. This is not a very complex solution. You simply need to turn to your own humanity and compassion and stop condoning war crimes.

Are you religious? Muslim? Christian? Hindu? What does your messiah, guru or savior have to say about violence? Is it normal to kill babies for political reasons? To “defend” your nation’s flag? Don’t all religions condemn murder? If your religion doesn’t (and according the interpretation of some they don’t) condemn murder, then it’s time to dump your religion.

Nature teaches that you reap what you sow, and those who reap violence will sow the seeds of hatred and suffering which will come back to get them. Love and peace is the big lesson here. We must learn to love one another and live in peace. It is time for humanity to wake up to the new world order plans. This is a powerful global cabal of super rich and powerful elite who have been planning global control of the world for a very long time. They want full domination of the world including all resources and land.

This is the bigger picture of the atrocities we see today, and it is understandable if some people observing events can’t quite understand this. You may even think that this is unrealistic or ridiculous talk due to the way government has turned the term “conspiracy theory” into a thought blocker. Try to overcome automated feelings that make you want to ignore the information up front. Instead, begin to think critically. Begin to think on your own and resist knee-jerk responses to critical information.

Remember that we are conscious (not political) human beings first, and we have a responsibility to think critically and analyze the world around us. Will you be a follower or a leader? Ultimately, it is up to you to decide. This conflict in Gaza, or should I say, these war crimes we bear witness to in Gaza, are a great opportunity to trigger mass consciousness about the global agenda of the global elite, as well as the government of Israel. It is also a great opportunity to show your friends and family exactly how biased the mainstream media is. Exposing these issues are a big part of the solution.

Let’s use this situation to come together as a humanity, for it is by coming together that we will be able to expose the global plans of the global elite and trigger the mass consciousness we need to make this world a better place.

The Bride Of 9/11 – Scripted And Ready To Roll

911

They’re coming on hot and heavy utilizing this freshly engineered ISIS uprising in Iraq, and not just for more war in the Middle East and the taking of Syria and Ukraine as they roll on towards Iran. The psychopaths seem to be planning another 9/11 using their resurrected terror meme with a new and improved, as in more “evil, deadly and powerful”, face.

Here’s the set up, front page in NYC news:

Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Wednesday that New York City is “constantly vigilant” against any terror threat posed by the recent violence in Iraq.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, has already captured major cities in Iraq and is threatening its capital.

A U.S. official said this week that its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, said “I’ll see you guys in New York” when he was released in 2009. Source

Who’s going to question where the next massive false flag attack came from now? Same tactic they used with Bin Laden – make the “demon” plain for all to see and then unleash whatever horror they have in their psychotic minds on an innocent populace to justify anything they want to accomplish in their quest for full spectrum dominance both abroad and domestically.

Bald-faced Stage Setting

Lindsay Graham has been a consistent mouthpiece for the NeoCons and Zionists, dutifully pushing for more war in the region with the eventual goal of taking down Iran. He came out plain and simple on America’s mainstream Face the Nation with the following:

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer Sunday morning that the developments in Iraq portended a new 9/11, a consequence he deemed “inevitable.”

“The decision to withdraw U.S. forces created a vacuum,” Graham said. “Syria is launching pad. …If the central government in Iraq collapses — and that’s the goal of ISIS — Iran will own southern part of Iraq, that’s where the Shiites live; they can operate ISIS from Baghdad to Kurdistan all the way in to Syria. They will eventually march on Jordan and Lebanon — our best ally in the region is the King of Jordan — and they will attack us from that part of Iraq and Syria. According to our own Director of National Intelligence, FBI Director, the next 9/11 is coming from here.”

Assumptive Programming and Terror Reinforcement

The usual fear mongering and saber rattling, but it does take it to another dimension, and is meant to put Americans on alert by reinforcing the terror meme they’ve been playing all along so they’ll keep what’s going on, or what they’re told is going on, in the perspective they want it to be kept in. This reinforcement is integral to social engineering.

Just the repetition of the carefully created name “Islamic State of Iraq and Syria” is imprinting the absorbed Syrian state they want to bring about. The war for the mind comes first, the rest just follows. Boundaries are dissolved by propaganda, their weapon of choice. The global psychopaths have been redrawing boundaries to meet their objectives for decades. And war has always been their excuse, almost always triggered and egged on by false flag operations.

Now that the al Qaeda meme has run out of steam, especially since the US and NATO have been caught red handed arming and training them and other mercenaries to subvert target nations in their region of choice, a bigger badder demon must arise to scare the crap out of a war weary populace.

This is where the nuclear option seems almost inevitable. Americans are worn out with pointless politics, a bland media and a collapsing economy. Something big is needed to jolt them back into the freaked out stage that propelled them into the first frenzied attack on the Middle East and mindless subjection to the Patriot Act et al and the police state that followed. We all know they want to ratchet this up quite a bit more, with the pivotal issue of gun confiscation clearly a priority.

It’s a terrible option to conceive but it’s clear they are determined to take their offensive on human sovereignty and sanctity to the next Machiavellian level of global control, beginning with the dissolution of personal rights and freedoms based on whatever excuse they manufacture.

Be Prepared Mentally, Spiritually and Physically

It’s not a time to do nothing. To be forewarned is to be forearmed…with clear headed precautions and a clear conscious awareness at all times. If and when this next big event happens it will once again reshape the world around us. Already economies are on the brink of collapse with apparently no relief in sight. It won’t take much to set the dominoes in motion, which is why a dramatic enough event will be all they need to forcibly take control at every level, what little they haven’t already done.

They will no doubt get all the mileage they can out of the threat itself before such an event as they have been since the original 9/11. The run-up will be obvious so watch for it. Already Obomber is making executive orders like mad and we’re even starting to see some push back regarding his abject dismissal of anything regarding the Constitution, with talk of a possible impeachment vote.

This is the very climate that precedes staged events, mega distractions from obvious realities where the veil is wearing thin and the people are starting to catch on.

The time could be soon. Stay on alert. Having done all you can to prepare and warn others will bring great peace.

Much love, Zen

Late last week, a conversation between high-ranking Turkish officials was leaked online purporting to expose a plan that had been devised to use a staged attack on a Turkish target in Aleppo as a pretext to start a war with Syria. Where does this recording come from? Who released it and why? What does this mean for the future of Turkish politics and the future of the Syrian war?

Ukraine Crisis: Just Another Globalist-Engineered Powder Keg

chess board

When one studies history, all events seem to revolve around the applications and degenerations of war. Great feats of human understanding, realization and enlightenment barely register in the mental footnotes of the average person. War is what we remember, idealize and aggrandize, which is why war is the tool most often exploited by oligarchy to distract the masses while it centralizes power.

With the exception of a few revolutions, most wars are instigated and controlled by financial elites, manipulating governments on both sides of the game to produce a preconceived result. The rise of National Socialism in Germany, for instance, was largely funded by corporate entities based in the U.S., including Rockefeller giant Standard Oil, JPMorgan and even IBM, which built the collating machines specifically used to organize Nazi extermination camps, the same machines IBM representatives  serviced on site at places like Auschwitz. As a public figure, Adolf  Hitler was considered a joke by most people in German society, until, of course, the Nazi Party received incredible levels of corporate investment. This aid was most evident in what came to be known as the Keppler Fund created through the Keppler Circle, a group of interests  with contacts largely based in the U.S.

George W. Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush, used his position as director of the New York-based Union Banking Corporation to launder money for the Third Reich throughout the war. After being exposed and charged for trading with the enemy, the case against Bush magically disappeared in a puff of smoke, and the Bush family went on to become one of the most powerful political forces in America.

Without the aid of international conglomerates and banks, the Third Reich would have never risen to power.

The rise of communism in Russia through the Bolshevik Revolution was no different. As outlined in Professor Antony Sutton’s book Wall Street And The Bolshevik Revolution with vast detail and irrefutable supporting evidence, it was globalist financiers that created the social petri dish in which the communist takeover flourished.  The same financiers that aided the Nazis…

The two sides, National Socialism and communism, were essentially identical despotic governmental structures conjured by the same group of elites. These two sides, these two fraudulent ideologies, were then pitted against each other in an engineered conflict that we now call World War II, resulting in an estimated 48 million casualties globally and the ultimate formation of the United Nations, a precursor to world government.

Every major international crisis for the past century or more has ended with an even greater consolidation of world power into the hands of the few, and this is no accident.

When I discuss the concept of the false left/right paradigm with people, especially those in the liberty movement, I often see a light turn on, a moment of awareness in their faces. Many of us understand the con game because we live it day to day. We see past the superficial rhetoric of Republican and Democratic party leadership and take note of their numerous similarities, including foreign policy, domestic defense policy and economic policy. The voting records of the major players in both parties are almost identical. One is hard-pressed to find much difference in ideology between Bush and Barack Obama, for example; or Obama and John McCain; or Obama and Mitt Romney, for that matter.

When I suggest, however, that similar false paradigms are used between two apparently opposed nations, the light fades, and people are left dumbstruck. Despite the fact that globalist financiers shoveled capital into the U.S., British, German and Soviet military complexes all at the same time during World War II, many Americans do not want to believe that such a thing could be happening today.

In response, I present the crisis in Ukraine versus the crisis in Syria…

Ukraine Versus Syria

It seems as though much of the public has already forgotten that at the end of 2013, the U.S. came within a razor’s edge of economic disaster — not to mention the possibility of World War III. The war drums in Washington were thundering for “intervention” in Syria and the overthrow of Bashar Assad. The only thing that saved us, I believe, were the tireless efforts of the independent media in exposing the darker motives behind the Syrian insurgency and the bloodlust of the Obama Administration. The problem is that when the elites lose one avenue toward war and distraction, they have a tendency to simply create another. Eventually, the public is so overwhelmed by multiple trigger points and political powder kegs that they lose track of reality. I often call this the “scattergun effect.”

The crisis in the Ukraine is almost a carbon copy of the civil war in Syria, culminating in what I believe to be the exact same intent.

The Money

Money from globalist centers has been flowing into the Ukrainian opposition since at least 2004, when the Carnegie Foundation was caught filtering funds to anti-Russian political candidate Viktor Yushchenko, as well as to the groups who supported him.

The Ukrainian Supreme Court called for a runoff due to massive voter fraud and the rise of the pro-Western Orange Revolution, determining the winner to be Yushchenko over none other than Viktor Yanukovych. Yanukovych went on to win the 2010 elections, and the revolution returned to oust him this year.

It has been discovered that the current revolution has also been receiving funds from NATO and U.S. interests, not just from the State Department, but also from billionaires like Pierre Omidyar, the chairman of eBay and the new boss of journalist Glen Greenwald, the same journalist who is now famous for being the first to expose  National Security Agency documents obtained by Edward Snowden.

Much of the monetary support from such financiers was being funneled to men like Oleh Rybachuk, the right-hand man to Yanukovych during the Orange Revolution and a favorite of neoconservatives and the State Department in the U.S.

The International Monetary Fund has also jumped at the chance to throw money at the new Ukrainian regime, which would prevent default of the country and allow the  opposition movement to focus their attentions on Russia.

The revolution in Syria was also primarily driven by Western funds and arms transferred through training grounds like Benghazi, Libya. There is much evidence to suggest that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was designed to possibly cover up the arming of Syrian rebels by the  CIA, who had agents on the ground who still have not been allowed to testify in front of Congress.

After this conspiracy was exposed in the mainstream,  globalist-controlled governments decided to openly supply money and weapons to the Syrian insurgency, instead of ending the subterfuge.

The ‘Rebels’

Some revolutions are quite real in their intent and motivations. But many either become co-opted by elites through financing, or they are created from thin air from the very beginning. Usually, the rebellions that are completely fabricated tend to lean toward extreme zealotry.

The Syrian insurgency is rife with, if not entirely dominated by men associated with al-Qaida. Governments in the U.S. and Israel continue to support the insurgency despite their open affiliation with a group  that is supposedly our greatest enemy. Syrian insurgents have been recorded committing numerous atrocities, including mass execution, the torture of civilians and even the cannibalism of human organs.

The revolution in Ukraine is run primarily by the Svoboda Party, a National Socialist (fascist) organization headed by Oleh Tyahnybok. Here is a photo of Tyahnybok giving a familiar salute:

tyahnybok

So far, the opposition in Ukraine has been mostly careful in avoiding the same insane displays of random violence that plagued the Syrians’ public image. It is important to remember though that mainstream outlets like Reuters went far out of their way in attempts to humanize Syrian al-Qaida. Their methods were exposed only through the vigilance of the independent media. With the fascist Svoboda in power in the Ukraine, I believe it is only a matter of time before we see video reports of similar atrocities, giving Russia a perfect rationalization to use military force.

John McCain?

I am now thoroughly convinced that John McCain is a patsy ghoul of the highest order. He claims to be conservative, yet supports almost every action of the Obama Administration. He is constantly defending anti-Constitutional actions by the Federal government, including the Enemy Belligerents Act, which was eventually melded into the National Defense Authorization Act; NSA surveillance of U.S. citizens; and even gun control.

And for some reason, the guy makes appearances like clockwork right before or during major overthrows of existing governments. McCain was in Libya during the coup against Moammar Gadhafi.

McCain showed up to essentially buy off the rebels in Tunisia.

McCain hung out with al-Qaida in Syria.

And, what a surprise, McCain met with the Ukrainian opposition movement just before the overthrow of Viktor Yanukovych.  Here is a photo of McCain giving a speech to the opposition with none other than Neo-Nazi Oleh Tyahnybok standing over his left shoulder.

Why McCain? I have no idea. All I know is, if this guy shows up in your country, take cover.

Russia In The Middle

The great danger in Syria was not necessarily the chance of war with Assad. Rather, it was the chance that a war with Assad would expand into a larger conflagration with Iran and Russia. Russia’s only naval facility in the Mideast is on the coast of Tartus in Syria, and Russia has long-standing economic and political ties to Syria and Iran. Any physical action by the West in the region would have elicited a response from Vladimir Putin. The mainstream argument claims that the threat of Russian intervention scared off Obama, but I believe the only reason war actions were not executed by the White House and the globalists was because they didn’t have even minimal support from the general public. For any war, you need at least a moderate percentage of the population to back your play.

In Ukraine, we find the globalists creating tensions between the West and the East yet again. Russia’s most vital naval base sits in Crimea, an autonomous state tethered to the Ukrainian mainland. Currently, Russia has flooded Crimea with troops in response to the regime change in Ukraine. The new Ukrainian government (backed by NATO) has called this an “invasion” and an act of war, while Western warmongers like McCain and Lindsay Graham spread the propaganda meme that Russia made such a move only because Putin believes the Obama Administration to be “weak.”

Clearly, the idea here is to engineer either high tensions or eventual war between Russia and the United States. Syria failed to produce the desired outcome, so the Ukraine was tapped instead.

Energy Markets And The Dollar At Risk

In Syria, any U.S. led military action would have resulted in the immediate closing of the Straight of Hormuz by Iran, threatening to obstruct up to 30% of global petroleum shipments. Foreign resentment could have easily led to the abandonment of the U.S. dollar as the petro-currency. Both China and Russia implied the possibility of an economic response to American intervention, though they did not officially go into specifics. In all likelihood, the dollar’s world reserve status would have been damaged irrevocably.

In the Ukraine, the chance of intervention has been countered with VERY specific threats from Russia, including a freeze on natural gas imports to the European Union through Gazprom, which supplies approximately 30% of the EU’s fuel.  In 2009, a temporary Ukranian pipeline closure led to widespread shortages across Europe.  While some in the mainstream claim that Russia’s influence over EU energy has “diminished” the fact is a loss of 30% of natural gas reserves for an extended period would inflate energy prices wildly and cripple the EU’s economy.

Another specific reaction given by Russia is the dumping of U.S. treasury bonds.  Russia’s bond holdings may not seem like much leverage, except for the fact that China has now publicly backed Russian efforts in the Ukraine, just as they backed Russian opposition to U.S. activities in Syria.  A dump of bonds by Russia would invariably be followed by a Chinese dump as well.  In fact, China and Russia have been setting the stage for a global dollar decoupling since at least 2008.  I have been warning for years that globalists and central bankers needed a “cover event”, a distraction or scapegoat imposing enough to provide a veil of chaos in which they could then destroy the greenback as the world reserve and usher in a global currency system.  The Ukraine crisis offers yet another opportunity for this plan to unfold.

The False Paradigm And The Globalist Chessboard

So far, I have outlined what appears to be a correspondence of conspiracy between Syria and the Ukraine and how each event has the continued potential to trigger regional conflict, dollar collapse, or world war. But is this conspiracy one-sided? Are only the West and NATO being manipulated by globalists to box in Russia and provoke a conflict? And what do globalists have to gain by sparking such disaster?

As with every other catastrophic fabricated war, the goal is the erasure of sovereign identity while consolidating economic, political and social power. It is not enough that global financiers dominate the banking industry and own most politicians; they want to transform the public psyche. They want US to ask THEM for global governance.  This manufacture of consent is often achieved by pitting two controlled governments against each other and then, in the wake of the tragedy, calling for global unification. The argument is always presented that if we simply abandoned the concept of nation states and reform under a single world body, all war would “disappear.”

The question is whether Russia’s Putin is aware of the plan. Is he a part of it?  Are we seeing repeat theater of a puppet Russia versus a puppet NATO like that witnessed during the Cold War?

What I do know is that Putin has, a number of times in the past, called for global control of the economy through the IMF and the institution of a new global currency using the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights (SDR).

Loans from the IMF are what saved Russia from debt default in the late 1990s. And Putin has recently called for consultations with the IMF concerning Crimea. Remember, this is the same IMF that is working to fund his opponents in Western Ukraine.

Bottom line, if you believe in national sovereignty and decentralization of power, Putin is NOT your buddy. Once again, we have the globalists injecting money into both sides of a conflict which could morph into something nightmarish.  Putin wants global economic governance and consolidation under the IMF just as much as the supposedly “American-run” IMF wants consolidation.  Global governance of finance and money creation ultimately means global governance of everything else.

Is a war being created through the false paradigm of East versus West in order to pave the road for global government?  Are East/West tensions being exploited as a smokescreen for the final destruction of the dollar’s world reserve status?  It is hard to say if the Ukraine will be the final trigger; however, the evidence suggests that if a conflict occurs, regardless of who “wins” such a scenario, the IMF comes out on top.

Imagine you are playing a game of chess by yourself. Which side wins at the end of that game: black or white? The answer is it doesn’t matter. You always win when you control both sides.

Only Global Banks Will Benefit From A Cyber-Attack On The U.S.

cyber war

When it comes to national crises and man-made disasters, America as a society has a tendency towards selective blindness.  If we were to truly think critically instead of reactively with hyperemotional conclusions, we might ask ourselves a few important questions.  In the wake of 9/11, we did not investigate the actual crime for ourselves.  Instead, the investigation was done for us, and within hours of the attacks a convenient group of villains was presented to us on a silver platter complete with trimmings as well as a few target countries we did not particularly like ready to bomb into oblivion.  After 9/11, we did not think; we set out to slay monsters.  Whether they were real or imagined made little difference…

If we had any sense back then, the populace would have asked themselves WHO truly benefited from the event?  Who really gained, and who really lost?  Did a bunch of cave dwelling Muslim fanatics “gain” from 9/11?  What did they gain?  Where was the incentive?

In any guerilla resistance or insurgency, the primary objective is to win the support of a particular populace.  To win hearts and minds.  Post 9/11, the world was ready to embrace the U.S. in a way that had not been seen in decades.  The “terrorist” plan to undermine the collective American character had apparently backfired.  The supposed goal of Al-Qaeda to rally the world behind its cause against U.S. imperialism had turned to poison.  The attacks then opened the political doorway for even more U.S. military dominion in the Middle East, and policies of preemption continue more than a decade later as politician after politician rides the tired pony of “national security” to complete exhaustion, playing the terrorism card as an excuse for every violent action and every disruption of civil liberties, while the establishment rams through every piece of unconstitutional legislation they have had on the backburner for years.

Again, the question remains: who really benefited from the event?

Now, some might claim that terrorists are generally disposed to insanity or religious zealotry, and don’t necessarily need to think in terms of cost/benefit when planning to kill people.  This assertion, however, is a mere feat of mental gymnastics designed to allow us to tapdance around the more complex issues.  Many of us would like to assume that the story of a sinister super-secret Al-Qaeda clan of death exists, and in order to do so we also have to believe that they are smart enough to embed themselves into every fabric of Western culture as our government constantly forewarns.  But, if they truly are that ingenious, wouldn’t we also have to consider the possibility that the terrorists are smart enough to take actions which serve THEIR interests, instead of only serving the interests of the people they are supposed to despise, like the U.S. and European power elite?

Al-Qaeda’s (or whoever they are) presence in Syria and the admitted (or loosely admitted) support they now receive from the U.S. in the form of monetary aid and weapons shipments is a perfect example of this dynamic.  Why would we reinforce a terrorist organization which our government has accused of killing thousands on 9/11?  Why would they help us destabilize Syria?

Why is it that everything Al-Qaeda does ultimately enriches the men they call their enemies?

Regardless of whether or not you believe such subversive events are the product of terrorist activities, it is impossible to deny that the establishment (globalists and their respective business entities) always seem to come out far ahead in the aftermath of every calamity.  We lose, the Muslim nations lose, and the global banks win, every time.  This is not debatable.  It is simply today’s reality…

Knowing this dynamic exists, I have to apply a bit of skepticism when I read press releases from the Department of Defense and the White House asserting that a 2nd World country like Iran is possibly at the forefront of cyber warfare against the U.S.:

http://www.cnn.com/2012/10/15/world/iran-cyber/index.html

I have to double my skepticism when Fox News reports that Iran is planning cyber-strikes from Mexico (playing into the DHS talking point of joint Mexican/Al-Qaeda operations.  Why the hell would Iran need to cyber attack from Mexico?  Why not the South Pole, or the Hamptons…?).  Not to mention, their expert guest on the matter is none other than Democratic Senator Joseph Lieberman, one of the primary soulless political figures behind such freedom roasting bills as the Enemy Belligerents Act (whose language was ultimately melded into the indefinite detention provisions of NDAA 2012), and the Cybersecurity Act of 2012, which is essentially CISPA on steroids:

http://video.foxnews.com/v/1329797936001/report-iran-plotting-cyber-attacks-against-us-from-mexico/

Neither the DoD, nor the White House, nor Lieberman, nor the mainstream media have ever offered any tangible evidence that Iran has anything to do with the alleged cyber attacks on major U.S. banks, the private Federal Reserve, or any American infrastructure of any kind.  Yes, in case you haven’t noticed, it sounds like Iraq all over again; lots of “experts” telling us what to think, and no evidence to back their claims.  So, without the benefit of any evidence from our fearless leaders in Washington D.C., we are left only with logic.  What would Iran’s goal be in executing a cyber attack against the U.S financial system, and what would they gain?

Even if the Middle Eastern nation has the capability to carry out such a techno-barrage, wouldn’t Iran be the first country that the U.S. would blame for the event regardless of evidence?  Why would Iran hand over the perfect pretext for a hard physical strike by Western powers?  Again, are we supposed to believe that the Iranian government is brilliant enough to pull off a coded 9/11, but too ignorant to realize they will be immediately targeted afterwards?

Now, there have been some cyber attacks in recent years which DO have strong suspects with ample evidence to support their guilt.  Namely, the Stuxnet virus attacks which were directed specifically at Iran and its nuclear energy program, all perpetrated by the U.S. and Israel.  I have seen cold hard facts showing that the U.S. and Israeli governments have a penchant for computer terrorism, and I have seen no facts that sully Iran.

Iran gains little or nothing from cyber warfare, but there is one group of interests that gain much…

I submit that in the event of a cyber attack on the U.S., the spoils of such a victory will fall into the laps of the very global bankers that are being portrayed as victims, and I also submit that said attacks will open a door to government controls that certain elites have been clamoring for over decades.  Here’s what they would get, and what you would lose…

1)  A Cyber Attack Would Divert Economic Blame Away From Banks And Government

The Federal Reserve created the powder keg atmosphere within our financial system that we experience today using artificially low interest rates which allowed fiat money to be fed into sure-loss housing loans and toxic debt derivatives.  The credit crisis and housing collapse NEVER could have occurred without the direct aid of central bankers.  International lenders like JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs knowingly issued these toxic derivatives into the system while betting against them on the open market in an outright act of fiscal sabotage on numerous countries from Greece to the United States.  Ratings agencies ignored the blatant dangers inherent in the derivatives market and gave toxic securities coveted AAA status.  The SEC, which is supposed to stand guard against this brand of corruption, instead looked the other way, rarely if ever investigating whistleblower complaints against the “Too Big Too Fails”.

When the American economy collapses (and it will) under the intense weight of this criminality on every level of the market process, the public will come after the banks and those politicians who helped them – unless a scapegoat is offered as a distraction.  A “cyber attack” on our banking system would give perfect cover for the banksters, allowing them to blame the collapse (which was going to happen anyway) on Iranian “terrorists”.  With their new victim status, international banks can then step in as the wounded but valiant “saviors” of the global financial system, centralizing even more power into fewer hands, issuing their new world reserve currency (the SDR) in the wake of a disintegrating dollar, focusing regulatory control within the IMF, all while the foolish populace chases after Muslim boogeymen.

2)  A Cyber Attack Gives Pretext For War

The argument for preemption against Iran over a nuclear weapons program that has never been proven to exist is simply ineffective and childish.  Globalists are beginning to realize that they have overplayed the “expert” card, and dropping a guy in a suit in front of a camera to tell Americans who to bomb is not quite working out like it did a decade ago.  Why not?  Because ten years ago Americans were still reeling from 9/11.  Globalist think tanks like the Washington Institute For Near East Policy now openly call for new attacks to be fabricated (false flag attacks) in order to frighten the American people into supporting a new war against Iran:

The interesting thing about the concept of a cyber false flag is that it leaves no physical fingerprints for average citizens to investigate.  Skeptics who suspect that our own government is the engineer of the attack might never be able to see the virus, coding, or transcripts of the event.  It is much easier to hide a collapsing network infrastructure than it is to hide a real building collapsing at near freefall speed (Building 7) without the aid of a crashing airliner.  With no physical or visible evidence whatsoever, a cyber false flag can be blamed on anyone, and the public will have to take the government at their word.

3)  A Cyber Attack Gives The Government Rationale For Internet Controls

Our government, regardless of which party occupies the presidency, has been chewing through concrete in an attempt to gain regulatory power over the internet and its content.  SOPA, CISPA, the Cybersecurity Act 2012, and on and on.  They do not hide the fact that they want to clamp down on the web, especially the web’s massive independent media presence, which the DHS often refers to as “extremist propaganda and recruitment”.  A cyber attack gives web totalitarians the perfect excuse to fence in our creative commons and silence activist media.  I can hear it now:  “The open and unsecured nature of the internet has given terrorists and terrorist states free reign to attack vital U.S. infrastructure, and it must be restricted for the greater good of the country…”

4)  A Cyber Attack Can Go Global

A cyber attack does not have to be limited to a single country and its networks.  It could be used to strike multiple countries and fuel a global firestorm of systems failures.  Globalists need a macro-crisis, a world-wide catastrophe, in order to present their “global solution” to the desperate masses. This solution will invariably include more dominance for them, and less freedom for us.  A global crisis can also be used to manipulate various cultures to forget concerns of sovereignty and think in terms of one-world action.  Surely, a worldwide breakdown can only be solved if we “all work together and all think alike”, right…?

Without a doubt, a cyber attack serves the interests of elitist entities and banking monstrosities like nothing else in existence.  Set off a nuke, start WWIII, turn the U.S. dollar into stagflationary dust; a cyber attack tops them all, because a cyber attack can lead to them all while maintaining deniability for the establishment.  The fact that whispers of cyber threats have turned into bullhorn blasted propaganda should concern us all.

Are we being conditioned for a cyber event in the near future?  That remains to be seen.  However, none of us should be surprised if one does occur, especially in light of the many gains involved for globalists, and all of us should be ready to dismantle and expose any lies surrounding the event before the American public is whipped into a 9/11 style frenzy yet again.
