Obama: Serial Killer

Somalia-drones-Obama

On Wednesday, a banner was displayed on the top floor of a building across from Washington’s Moscow embassy – the word “KILLER” prominently displayed on Obama’s image in blood red.

The previous evening, a laser display projected the accusation “Obama Killer #1” on the embassy itself. Moscow-based Glavplakat art society took credit, calling its action a response to Washington’s “plans to invade the territory of yet another sovereign state.”

“The word ‘killer’ defines the 44th US president, and is given to him because of his decision to send the infamous 101st Airborne Division into the Syrian conflict,” it said.

“Let’s keep in mind that this division (notoriously called “The Screaming Eagles”) carried out practically every US military invasion in the last decade.”

Ahead of peace talks beginning in Geneva on Friday, Sergey Lavrov said “there will be no business as usual between Russia and the West.”

Obama’s sordid record in office exceeds the worst of his predecessors, including endless wars of aggression.

He terror-bombed or remains complicit in naked aggression against seven countries.

They include Afghanistan and Pakistan (AfPak), Iraq, Libya, Syria, Somalia and Yemen – along with orchestrating US-installed putschists’ war on its own Donbass people, Israel’s slow-motion genocide against Palestinians, and US special forces operating overtly and covertly in over two-thirds of  world nations, destabilizing them.

Like his predecessors, Obama is addicted to endless wars of aggression, raping one country after another, responsible for millions of deaths, the severest refugee crisis since WW II, and unspeakable human misery.

Advancing America’s imperium matters most, fundamental rule of law principles discarded, democratic values ignored.

America is a pariah state, the world’s most hated and feared country, wanting unchallenged world dominance, willing to risk destroying planet earth to own it.

Its nuclear arsenal is humanity’s greatest threat, on hair-trigger alert. Never before in world history has one nation threatened humanity’s survival like America.

Lunatics in charge risk the unthinkable. All US wars are illegal, violating international, constitutional and US statute laws.

Reports indicate Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is fast-tracking a measure introduced by lunatic fringe Republican Senator Lindsey Graham – authorizing unlimited war, supporting Obama’s intention to keep waging them, likely against new targeted nations.

The measure places no restrictions on naked aggression, deployments of US combat troops anywhere at Obama’s discretion.

McConnell’s spokesman Don Stewart said the new Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) won’t “tie the president’s hands.”

It’s a prescription for possible global war – all sovereign independent nations vulnerable, targeted by Washington for regime change, wanting them transformed into US vassal states, perhaps willing to wage nuclear war to achieve its objectives – risking ending life on earth.

Today’s thermonuclear weapons are a 1,000 times more powerful than ones used against Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Large cities and surrounding areas can be turned to smoldering rubble, countless millions incinerated.

Lunatics run the Washington asylum, a bipartisan criminal class, Obama their nominal head.

Militarism is a national addiction. The business of America is war – multiple ones, endless ones, an ideologically over-the-top agenda able to kill us all.

Saudi Airstrikes On Yemen Deliberately Target Civilians

On January 27, London’s Guardian cited a UN panel investigating its terror-bombing found “widespread and systematic” attacks on civilians and civilian-related targets – horrendous war crimes by any standard.

The Guardian said evidence uncovered raises disturbing questions about Britain supplying Riyadh with heavy weapons.

US and UK military personnel select targets to be struck – including hospitals, schools, refugee camps, food storage areas, mosques, markets where Yemenis shop, and other nonmilitary sites, committing mass atrocities with impunity.

Security Council members have the UN report. So far it’s unpublished, the Guardian managing to get a copy.

Human rights groups and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called its contents disturbing. Corbyn wants an immediate inquiry and halt of British arms sales.

Prime Minister David Cameron is a serial liar, complicit in high crimes – duplicitously claiming Britain has strict rules governing arms sales, Saudi and other rogue states major buyers, getting heavy weapons used for waging war without mercy, murdering civilians in cold blood.

A damning report finding minced no words, saying:

“The panel documented that the coalition had conducted airstrikes targeting civilians and civilian objects, in violation of international humanitarian law, including camps for internally displaced persons and refugees; civilian gatherings, including weddings; civilian vehicles, including buses; civilian residential areas; medical facilities; schools; mosques; markets, factories and food storage warehouses; and other essential civilian infrastructure, such as the airport in Sana’a, the port in Hudaydah and domestic transit routes.”

“The panel documented 119 coalition sorties relating to violations of international humanitarian law.”

The Guardian said UK officials “confirmed that British forces have been in the Saudi command and control centre for the strikes on Yemen, but denies that the forces have an operational role.”

False! Yemen is Obama’s war, Washington orchestrating things, Saudi-led “coalition” warplanes striking US-chosen targets, Britain now supplying its own, the UN report explaining, saying:

“Many attacks involved multiple airstrikes on multiple civilian objects. Of the 119 sorties (with documented human rights violations), the panel identified 146 targeted objects. (It) also documented three alleged cases of civilians fleeing residential bombings and being chased and shot at by helicopters.”

Likely tens of thousands of civilians died since Riyadh’s aggression began last March, victims of imperial viciousness – US and UK-supplied “air-launched explosive weapons” alone killing many thousands.

The report bluntly said Saudi-led coalition terror-bombing “of civilians,” including residential areas where they live, “is a grave violation of the principles of distinction, proportionality and precaution. In certain cases, the panel found such violations to have been conducted in a widespread and systematic manner.”

“Holding perpetrators of violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law to account is fundamental and necessary for tackling impunity and deterring future violations in Yemen.”

Satellite imagery “revealed extensive damage to residential areas and civilian objects…”

UK Human Rights Watch director David Mepham said UN findings “flatly contradict repeated statements made by British ministers about the actions of the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.”

They willfully lied, claiming no evidence of war crimes. Amnesty International’s Allan Hogarth said “(t)housands of civilians have already died and it’s been utterly dismaying to see Downing Street brushing aside extremely serious concerns about the reckless conduct of Saudi Arabia in this devastating conflict.”

Damning UN evidence is one thing, accountability something else, Ban Ki-moon and other high-level UN officials doing nothing to demand it – nor have world leaders.

Yemenis suffer and die daily, no end to their ordeal in sight.

Syrian Peace Talks To Start January 29

On Monday, Arab League/UN envoy to Syria Steffan de Mistura announced the date without indicating who’ll participate.

From what’s known, US/Saudi-backed terrorist groups will be involved, including Jaish al-Islam (Army of Islam).

It operates like ISIS, equally ruthless, responsible for the August 2013 Ghouta, Syria chemical weapons attack, killing scores, injuring numerous others, Assad wrongfully blamed for its high crime.

What other US/Saudi-backed terrorist groups will participate remains for de Mistura to name them, begging the question.

How can peace talks be legitimate when one side is committed to Syria’s destruction, its popularly elected government replaced by one decided by outside forces – Syrians having no say over who’ll lead them?

How can they succeed when Obama and rogue allies want endless war until achieving regime change – using ISIS and other terrorist groups as imperial foot soldiers?

Geneva I and II talks failed. Expect this round to fare no better, de Mistura admitting things will be “uphill” at best, mission impossible most likely.

Proximity talks are planned, shuttle diplomacy, mediated by Western-controlled UN negotiators, not both sides meeting face-to-face – a process to last at least six months, maybe much less if intractable deadlock occurs.

Initial talks for several weeks will focus on increasing humanitarian aid, combating ISIS, and negotiating a ceasefire with selected opposition terrorist groups – committed to continue fighting.

Anti-Assad moderate combatants don’t exist. Perpetuating the myth otherwise persists. De Mistura claiming “suspensions of fighting” can be negotiated with US/Saudi-backed terrorists is pure fantasy.

Nearly five years of Obama’s terror war with no foreseeable end speaks for itself. Syrian UN envoy Bashar al-Jaafari will head his government’s delegation.

A so-called High Negotiations Committee opposition coalition named serial killer Mohammed Alloush to head its side, a key Army of Islam terrorist, drawing sharp criticism, perhaps rendering peace talks dead-on-arrival.

Who can negotiate with someone holding a knife to his throat, guilty of gruesome atrocities, showing no signs of ending them, enjoying full US/Saudi support?

It bears repeating what earlier articles stressed. Chances for restoring peace and stability to war-ravaged Syria any time soon are virtually nil.

US War On ISIS: A Complete Hoax

ISIS

US post-9/11 war on terror reflects willful state-sponsored deception – media scoundrels complicit in conning the public to believe Washington opposes what it actively supports.

ISIS, Al Qaeda, Jabhat al-Nusra and various splinter groups are US creations, used as imperial foot soldiers, flourishing because Washington and rogue partners arm, fund, train and direct them.

Obama’s vow to “degrade and destroy” ISIS is one of his many Big Lies – saying one thing while supporting a universal scourge.

Last Thursday, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter announced scores newly deployed US commandos in Iraq – ahead of hundreds (perhaps thousands) of combat troops to follow.

In September 2014, Obama said US troops “do not and will not have a combat mission” in Iraq against ISIS.

“I will not (order) our armed forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq.” John Kerry repeated the same Big Lie.

Carter’s public announcement along with a Defense Department press release revealed it. Months of planning precede military operations.

Washington already has thousands of special forces in Iraq along with unknown numbers in Syria. Escalated military operations are now planned – naked aggression by any standard.

The Pentagon press release cited Carter saying defeating ISIS “must be a global effort and coalition partners and others must step up their contributions to the escalating fight.”

“America will continue to lead the fight. (G)reater military contributions (from) coalition partner(s)” are needed.

Next week, he intends meeting with British, French, German, Italian, Dutch and Australian defense ministers – discussing their involvement in Washington’s imperial campaign.

Make no mistake. The Pentagon intends aiding, not combating, ISIS on the phony pretext of plans to retake Mosul, Iraq and Raqqa, Syria, ISIS strongholds – saying it’ll aid nonexistent anti-Assad “moderate” forces and Iraqi Kurds, facing Erdogan’s war without mercy, getting no Western help in their liberating struggle.

Carter claiming Washington intends defeating ISIS is pure rubbish. Saying “extraordinary challenges (lie) ahead” is code language for endless war.

US Iraqi and Syrian bombing since 2014 struck no ISIS targets, infrastructure and government ones only.

Carter’s announcement may be the Pentagon’s attempt to counter Russia’s effective war on ISIS in Syria, aiming to prevent Iraq from requesting its vitally needed help.

Carter’s scheme is designed to help ISIS, not combat its scourge.

Middle East A Cauldron Of Horror

middle east skull 560

As-salamu alaykum (the peace be upon you (plural) and Shalom (peace, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity, welfare and tranquility) may have different nuances but both express a similar intent of goodwill. In reality, not much benevolent friendship exists in the eternal cauldron of Semitic hatred. Genetic and blood feuds have proliferated throughout history, but the foremost difference in this ongoing struggle is that the prospects of initiating a nuclear holocaust are reaching a meltdown radiation level. Human comprehension of the actual devastation from a nuclear strike, much less an all out exchange of warheads cannot be understood by playing a video game or watching a media presentation.

Up to this point in the age of atom splitting annihilation, the apprehension of obliteration kept sounder minds and self-control from pushing the button. But what restraint exists when Islamic suicide bombers or Zionist zealots who are prepared to use the “Samson Option” are in control of the weapons of mass destruction?

An assessment of NUCLEAR WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST, authored by Nick Turse cites a scholarly study. Cham Dallas who is lead author says that “the projections are the most catastrophic he’s seen in more than 30 years analyzing weapons of mass destruction and their potential effects.”

“This could be Tehran, or what’s left of it, just after an Israeli nuclear strike. Iranian cities – owing to geography, climate, building construction, and population densities  –  are particularly vulnerable to nuclear attack, according to a new study, “Nuclear War Between Israel and Iran: Lethality Beyond the Pale,” published in the journal Conflict and Health by researchers from the University of Georgia and Harvard University. It is the first publicly released scientific assessment of what a nuclear attack in the Middle East might actually mean for people in the region.

Its scenarios are staggering.  An Israeli attack on the Iranian capital of Tehran using five 500-kiloton weapons would, the study estimates, kill seven million people  –  86% of the population  –  and leave close to 800,000 wounded.  A strike with five 250-kiloton weapons would kill an estimated 5.6 million and injure 1.6 million, according to predictions made using an advanced software package designed to calculate mass casualties from a nuclear detonation.

Estimates of the civilian toll in other Iranian cities are even more horrendous.  A nuclear assault on the city of Arak, the site of a heavy water plant central to Iran’s nuclear program, would potentially kill 93% of its 424,000 residents.  Three 100-kiloton nuclear weapons hitting the Persian Gulf port of Bandar Abbas would slaughter an estimated 94% of its 468,000 citizens, leaving just 1% of the population uninjured.  A multi-weapon strike on Kermanshah, a Kurdish city with a population of 752,000, would result in an almost unfathomable 99.9% casualty rate.”

John Bosma pens this gem in The American Thinker, Thinking About the Unthinkable: An Israel-Iran Nuclear War.

“The possibility of a nuclear war coming far sooner than one could have imagined under conventional wisdom worst-case scenarios. Following the US’s betrayal of Israel and its de facto detente with Iran, we cannot expect Israel to copy longstanding US doctrines of no-first-nuclear-use and preferences for conventional-weapons-only war plans. After all, both were premised (especially after the USSR’s 1991 collapse) on decades of US nuclear and conventional supremacy. If there ever were an unassailable case for a small, frighteningly vulnerable nation to pre-emptively use nuclear weapons to shock, economically paralyze, and decapitate an enemy sworn to its destruction, Israel has arrived at that circumstance.”

No wonder my fellow friends and readers that you will not see our essays appear in this pinnacle publication of Israel-First dribble. This DARPA consultant, John Bosma boasts that he draws on a 40-year background in nuclear war-gaming and strategic arms control. He sounds like the real model for the WOPR (War Operation Plan Response). Even the computer nerd Dr Stephen Falken from War Games, playing a modified Stephen Hawking role knows better. Calling his creation Joshua, is most symbolic.

At this point let’s face the substance and prospects of just who will launch a detonation. Israel still refuses to publically acknowledge their substantial cache of nukes. However, Israel Submarine Capabilities have much to thank the German made U-boats designers.

“It seems possible, therefore, that the 650mm tubes might have been designed to accommodate indigenously built, long-range Submarine Launched Cruise Missiles (SLCM). The German government has stated that it does not have information on whether Israel installed different equipment on the submarines after delivery, but former German officials have acknowledged that they assumed that Israel intended to equip the submarines with nuclear weapons.”

The insanity that is Middle East knows no bounds. A recent BATR RealPolitik Newsletter topic: The Sunni – Shia War, has a wealth of information on the insidious arrangement Saudi Arabia has made with Israel. If a nuclear attack mission destroys the region, you should know which direction the bombs will come from.

From a popular military and foreign policy publication, The National Interest, account Iran’s Master Plan to Retaliate If Israel Strikes may surprise you.

“However Iran chooses to respond to an Israeli attack on its nuclear program, Khamenei will instruct the IRGC-QF to do its work as discreetly as possible. Any overt missile attack on an American ally in the Arab world — let alone a conventional missile attack on Israel — would prompt the U.S. armed forces to scramble the fighter jets and deploy the aircraft carriers. This is not something Iran wants and a full U.S. military operation is certainly not something that they can afford to confront.

The name of the game for Iran is to maximize the damage on Israeli and U.S. interests without provoking a conventional military assault from both nations that will degrade its military capability and potentially destroy the regime.”

Ponder the last statement. Do you really believe that Iran wants to risk a nuclear retaliation response from Israel with their vastly superior military machine capacity? As reported, the US to deliver F-35 jets to Israel to maintain military edge, is just another indication that Iran may be able to bluff an Obama administration from patrolling the waters of the Persian Gulf, but can they do the same to the Likudniks? However, even the NYT Iran’s Swift Release of U.S. Sailors Hailed as a Sign of Warmer Relations cannot cover-up the absurdity of U.S. foreign policy.

Central to any analysis of deploying arms and boots into this region must confront exactly what benefit or security interest does America gain from such involvements?

Now that Rand Paul has been ushered to tweeting his presidential debate responses, you won’t be hearing any serious challenge on the uniform genuflection to the Wailing Wall.

The intrepid non-intervention, Michael Scheuer quotes George F. Kennan, the quintessential Mr. X of American foreign policy. “The United States has a fateful tie to the Israelis from which we have, in contradistinction to the Israelis, everything to lose, and nothing to gain.” George F. Kennan, Diaries, 25 April 1978.

Mr. Scheuer goes on to say in Time for America to bid a final farewell to Israel and Palestine.

“The war is occurring in a far away place that is no longer of any strategic interest to the United States because the combination of Washington’s relentless, war-causing and Islamist-motivating interventionism and Obama’s cowardly surrenderism have already given the entire region to the Islamists and ensured — thanks to Jewish-American Neocons — Israel’s ultimate doom. Therefore it matters not a lick to any but disloyal Americans whether the Israelis kill all the Palestinians, the Palestinians kill all the Israelis, or, in the best case scenari0, they mutually destroy each other. At the end of the war they all simply will be dead foreigners of whom we had no need and for whom we need not bid any teary farewells. Peoples who want to fight religious wars deserve whatever they get, and these two peoples are determined to fight their religious war until one side or the other is destroyed. Well, so be it, let us get out of it now.”

This wisdom applies to the Zionist/Sunni relationship and their ill-gotten alliance against the Shia Iranians. Since Arabs and Persians do not mix any better than Jews and Palestinian’s, why should the entire globe be drawn into a kosher conflagration?

The United States has become part of a “Reign of Terror” orchestrated by a deceptive and treacherous “so called” ally. There is no need to champion or defend Iran as a Good Samaritan. Radical Islamic Terrorists are just as bad as IDF and Mossad hit squads. The underlying governmental regimes behind these warmonger belligerents have exported their regional hatred to our own shores.

With the prospects of the carnage described by Cham Dallas that could befall Tehran coming to an American city, it is crucial that America pivot away from befriending Israel and adopt a neutral and a non-involvement policy. The inevitability of a real holocaust befalls all parties because of their refusal to give up their quests for dominance. The American empire is over. Wake up to the fifth column hidden in plain sight.

Globalism’s War For Domination

globalism

The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. – H.L. Mencken

Some of us were there during the struggle to stop the war in another era. How quickly our fellow neighbors forget what the struggle over Viet Nam was all about. For those born after that period of national discontent, the lessons of that conflict seem to escape them. By now it should be clear for even the most staunch supporter of that debacle and tragic chapter of our history, that the only victory of that combat was the continual march to globalize the world community. The canard that the struggle against Communism was wholly a battle between good and evil has been exposed as a false choice. The last remnants of the righteous; namely the American experiment, that once gleamed hope for mankind, dissolved an entire century before that campaign in South East Asia.

What we have three decades later is an overt merging of the underlying and discredited totalitarian collectivism that Marxism represents, with the despotic democratic socialism that the United States has adopted. The demise of our own Republic is complete. The world community is a euphemism for compliance and control. The principle of individual convictions has become the primary enemy for this international cabal of elites. They cloak their own version of dictatorship in benign terms, while they consolidate their global reach and rule. Humanity faces extinction not from weapons of mass destruction, but from surrender to the forces of institutional depravity, that is at the core of the New World Order.

Now we have another round in the unabated and continual descent into the bowels of pure evil. The U.S. Congress and Senate has crossed its last Rubicon, buried the constitution even deeper and marches briskly in lock step to global government. Only those who are in total denial will defend that the world requires the permission of the beltway oligarchy, the sanctions of wall street plutocrats and the arrogance of the Mattoids within the international community. This NWO – is the only real, true and permanent enemy. Don’t be fooled that Obama seems to be alone for his push for regime change. The forces of globalism are always the beneficiary of WAR. Countries may seem to oppose U.S. strategy, but few are willing to confront the forces that exert real political power. What is at stake is not a path for remedial and paternal generosity as the proponents of Pax America want you to believe. The actual purpose of this latest hostility seeks to destroy any and all resistance to synthesize the world economy, to administer a uniformed political system and to demonstrate the effectiveness of their enforcement capacity.

If you accept and define patriotism to mean love of one’s country, why do you view government as synonymous with the nation? Is it so difficult to understand that the STATE only masquerades as representative of the people, while their actions are designed and consistently foster the global agenda? Why would you support, defend and advocate superpower status when that concentration of power and reach results in the demise of your own personal Liberty? When the popular TV announcement shows that terrorism has changed America forever with flags flying from row houses, why are those flags not flown inverted? Only American denial would dispute that our own homegrown terror resides within the political patricians that claim moral omnipresence, while their primary export is coerced compliance to international rule under the monocrary mantel of uniformed universal policy.

People obfuscate the essence of the continual struggle. They insist and want to separate the U.S. government from the NWO. Their denial is based upon confusion that our system and leaders oppose the most hideous designs by the oppressors of the International Corporate/State Axis. Their refusal to comprehend that the NWO is a supranational vision that requires the subjugation and elimination of the noble American experiment, is their fundamental error. Yes, the facts of history provide a clear downward descent of our nations adherence to the ideals of 1776. The constant assault upon our unique attempt to place government under the authority of citizens, has failed because our own leaders have deceived for decades, by claiming that they are defenders of our freedoms. Their record is one of betrayal and treason. Now we have the latest example, that the majority of the public favors our own home grown despots and demand to live and be governed under their surrender to world dominion.

The admission of Mayor Richard J Daley rings loud and clear from the grave. But in today’s society, dissent and resistance to a failed internationalist foreign policy is rare. The police of Chicago back in 1968 were innocuous compared to the planetary reach that their form of disorder seeks to use over regimes that fall outside the circle of capitulation. We are no fan or proponent of Iraq or the Islamic culture or cause. But we also reject policies that primarily benefit an Israel First objective or seizure and mastery over foreign oil resources. We don’t seek isolation from the world, but demand freedom from dominance from a world community that is bent on the destruction of our own beloved America Nation. When domestic politicians serve the interests of the elites that foster the international specter of human enslavement; we will oppose, resist and disobey their program.

Don’t conclude that we have any respect for the several DemocRATS that voted against the Iraq Resolution. The only Democrats that ever received our support were write in votes for Eugene McCarthy and George Wallace. Our endorsement embraces the Pat Buchanan viewpoint.

This authorization to use force without a clear declaration of war demonstrates that the projection of government power is the real objective. Protection of the homeland is not increased, but this coming conflict will guarantee an inevitable “blowback“. Regime change is an argument more properly directed to our own government. Will the denial of the apologists for unwarranted aggression ‘American Style’ make us safe, or will the smart bombs just advance the NWO program closer to their ultimate goal, world citizenship under the whip of a smiley face tyrant?

If this isn’t the factual reality of our age, what do you call the elimination and extermination of the countless millions during the last century to the forces of global domination? If you still believe that the U.S. policy wears a white hat, you are blinded by the RED color in the banner that poses as the county’s symbol. We pay homage to the original thirteen star flag. One that sought freedom and justice based upon limited government. As long as you refuse to see that segment of the enemy – holds reign under the guise of a fraudulent native government – the responsibility for terror on our shores will share your imprint. This coming war is wrong, immoral and unnecessary. This repeat of history risks total conflagration. Are you really so sure you want to support this cause?

Britain Aiding Saudi Terror War On Yemenis

Make no mistake. Yemen is Obama’s war, planned, orchestrated and initiated in Washington, using Riyadh and other rogue regional states to do his dirty work.

On January 7, Britain’s Sky News headlined “Exclusive: UK Helping Saudi’s Yemen Campaign” – allied with Washington, complicit in high crimes against peace.

Yemenis are being mass slaughtered, civilians harmed most, indiscriminately targeted to inflict massive pain and suffering.

Britain already supplies Riyadh with terror weapons. “Sky sources confirmed that six (UK) experts are working with Saudi targeteers who select locations for attack” – including residential areas, schools, hospitals, refugee camps, food storage areas, mosques and other nonmilitary sites.

London’s Defense Ministry lied, claiming noninvolvement in warmaking – absurdly saying it’s “training the Saudis to comply with the international rules of war,” according to Sky News. Only fools and morons believe it.

Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have documented evidence of excessive Saudi war crimes.

According to HRW’s David Mepham, “(a)t a time when the Saudis and other members of the Gulf coalition are committing multiple violations of the laws of war in Yemen, we’ve documented that.”

HRW produced “numerous reports about what the Saudis are up to in Yemen – that the British are working hand in glove with the Saudis, helping them, enhancing their capacity to prosecute this war that has led to the death of so many civilians.”

Washington and London are complicit in horrendous war crimes, genocidal ones, an entire population at risk, appalling human suffering persisting.

Both countries maintain the pretense of wanting civilians protected – while conspiring to slaughter and starve them, along with denying them vital medical care.

Britain has its own imperial aims. It supplies Riyadh with large amounts of terror weapons. It’s mindless of war crimes and other human rights abuses.

Sky News said UK tory ministers “refused to comment on (its) revelations.” A deliberate Defense Ministry misinformation statement said “UK military personnel are not directly involved in Coalition operations, but are supporting Saudi forces through pre-existing arrangements and additional liaison officers in Saudi headquarters.”

“We operate one of the most rigorous and transparent arms export control regimes in the world with each license application assessed on a case by case basis, taking account of all relevant information, to ensure compliance with our legal obligations.”

“No license is issued if it does not meet these requirements.”

Truth is polar opposite these bald-faced lies – Britain complicit with US and Saudi high crimes against peace.

America has a long sordid history of waging direct and proxy wars of aggression, freely using banned terror weapons.

War on Yemen was planned and orchestrated in Washington, using Riyadh and its rogue allies to do its dirty work.

Another nation is being systematically ravaged and destroyed, its entire population at risk from violence, starvation, untreated illnesses and diseases along with overall deprivation – the world community largely dismissive of appalling human suffering.

Cluster bombs are illegal terror weapons – their use, transfer and stockpiling banned under the 2010 Convention on Cluster Munitions.

As of October 2015, 118 states signed the treaty – 98 ratified it, including most European nations, pledging “never under any circumstances” to develop, produce, acquire, stockpile, retain, transfer or use these weapons.

America and Israel use them freely. Pentagon commanders outrageously call them humane weapons, saying “(b)lanket elimination (is) unacceptable due not only to negative military consequences but also due to potential negative consequences for civilians.”

They’re brightly colored. Young children are at risk, mistaking them for toys. Picking them up risks serious injury or death. Large amounts of unexploded ordnance remains dangerous longterm.

Riyadh is indiscriminately using US-supplied cluster munitions in Yemen, targeting residential communities. A new Human Rights Watch (HRW) report accused Saudi-led forces of “airdropping cluster bombs on residential neighborhoods in Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, early on January 6, 2016.”

It called reckless and indiscriminate of these banned weapons “a war crime.” HRW’s Steve Goose said their “repeated use” in densely populated residential areas indicates a deliberate “intent to harm civilians.”

“These outrageous attacks show that (Saudi-led tactics ignore) sparing civilians from war’s horrors.”

Photographic evidence shows “unmistakable remnants of cluster munitions, including unexploded submunitions, spherical fragmentation liners from submunitions that broke apart on impact, and parts of the bomb that carried the payload.”

“Human Rights Watch identified the munitions as from US-made BLU-63 antipersonnel/anti-materiel submunitions and components of a CBU-58 cluster bomb. Markings on the bomb remnants indicate that it was manufactured in 1978 at the Milan Army Ammunition Plant in the state of Tennessee in the United States.”

In 2015, HRW documented three types of cluster munitions used in Yemen. Amnesty International identified a fourth type. A fifth type is also being used – weapons Riyadh and its rogue partners get from Washington.

HRW co-founded and chairs the Cluster Munition Coalition (CMC), an initiative to eliminate their use.

Washington bears full responsibility for ongoing slaughter in Yemen, supplying Riyadh with cluster and other terror weapons – deliberately used against defenseless civilians, inflicting horrific casualties and human suffering.

Yemen: A US-Orchestrated Holocaust

APTOPIX Mideast Yemen

Millions of lives are at risk from violence, starvation, lack of vital medical care, and overall deprivation.

A new UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCR) report downplayed the ongoing catastrophe, shamelessly undercounting civilian casualties since conflict began last March.

It’s likely in the tens of thousands from Saudi terror-bombing heavily populated areas and absence of vital essentials to life.

Claiming it’s only 2,800, another 5,200 wounded mocks the unbearable suffering of millions of Yemenis, victims of US imperialism.

The world community remains largely indifferent, ignoring an entire population at risk. Millions may perish before conflict ends. Nothing is being done to prevent it.

Fighting shows no signs of abating. Obama’s orchestrated war complicit with Riyadh is another high crime on his rap sheet, major media scoundrels giving it short shrift.

Famine stalks Yemen, around 20 million at risk, children, the ill and elderly most vulnerable. War without mercy continues.

Secure sources of food, potable water, fuel, electricity and medical care are absent or in too short supply in most of the country – impossible conditions to survive for many.

Malnutrition is rampant, near-starvation commonplace. So are preventable diseases claiming unknown numbers of lives for lack of treatment. Body counts exclude nonviolent deaths.

A phantom mid-December ceasefire ended in the new year. Saudis escalated terror-bombing US selected targets, including densely populated residential areas, hospitals, refugee camps, vital infrastructure and other non-military sites.

A blockade remains in force, preventing vital to life essentials from getting to people in need in amounts enough to matter.

Washington and Riyadh want war, not peace. Ceasefire was more illusion than reality – Houthis irresponsibly blamed for imperial crimes. Yemenis continue suffering horrifically.

Their country is being systematically ravaged and destroyed – increasingly looking like Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria.

US imperialism bears full responsibility, destroying life on earth one country at a time, making things unbearable for survivors.

Last September, a largely Saudi-drafted (US/UK supported) UN Human Rights Council resolution on Yemen excluded an independent international war crimes investigation, whitewashing imperial high crimes.

It authorized only UN provided technical assistance to a Yemeni inquiry headed by illegitimate president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi – US-installed in a 2012 election with no opposing candidates.

Yemen remains a black hole of endless violence and instability, no relief in sight for its suffering millions.

The US Created A Monster: ISIS Atrocities

isis made in USA

ISIS is a US creation, their fighters used as imperial foot soldiers, trained in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar and perhaps elsewhere by CIA operatives, Pentagon special forces and their allied counterparts – taught the fine art of committing atrocities.

They include beheadings, mass executions, other types of cold-blooded murder, deliberately targeting civilians, human trafficking, exploiting young girls and women as sex slaves, as well as using sarin and other toxic chemical agents.

Russia has clear evidence pointing to the “very high” probability (virtual certainty) indicating ISIS use of banned chemical weapons.

According to Russia’s Foreign Ministry head of nonproliferation and control over weapons Mikhail Ulyanov:

“Several times we have noted facts of the probable use of chemical weapons by (ISIS) militants and in a broader sense by Islamic radicals, beginning with the attack in Khan al-Assal (Syria) in March 2013 against government forces.”

“Since facts are shown in one direction…we believe the probability that the weapons are being used by militants is very high.”

In mid-December, Turkish Republican People’s Party (CHP) opposition member Eren Erdem accused Ankara of covering up a major war crime, likely direct high-level involvement in smuggling materials used to make deadly sarin gas to ISIS and other terrorists.

Assad is irresponsibly blamed for US-supported terrorists’ high crimes, including use of banned weapons. Turkish officials are directly involved in supplying ISIS and other terrorist groups with sarin and likely other toxic agents – materials smuggled cross-border along with weapons, munitions and various supplies on the pretext of delivering humanitarian aid.

None of this could go on without direct high-level regime involvement, a rogue state partnering with Washington’s imperial enterprise.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) found Syrians (largely civilians) were exposed to sarin and other toxic agents multiple times – incidents reported by Damascus.

On Monday, OPCW head Ahmet Uzumcu said “(i)n one instance, analysis of some blood samples indicates that individuals were at some point exposed to sarin or a sarin-like substance.”

“Further investigation would be necessary to determine when or under what circumstances such exposure might have occurred.”

Evidence Russia obtained indicates ISIS use. Syria under OPCW supervision destroyed its chemical weapons stockpile. Nothing suggests it was ever used throughout years of conflict. Claims otherwise were Big Lies.

Earlier, ISIS and other terrorists were caught red-handed using sarin and other chemical weapons against Syrian civilians numerous times.

CIA and US special forces trained takfiri terrorists in chemical weapons use, perhaps supplying them with toxic agents to use.

Saudi Arabia was caught red-handed, providing them with toxic agents in containers marked “made in KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia).”

Last November, OPCW experts confirmed terrorists’ use of mustard gas and chlorine in Syria with “utmost confidence,” calling perpetrators “non-state actor(s).”

The 1925 Geneva Protocol prohibits use of “asphyxiating, poisonous or other gases, and of all analogous liquids, materials or devices,” as well as “bacteriological methods of warfare.”

The 1972 Biological Weapons Convention and 1993 Chemical Weapons Conventions prohibits their production, storage or transfer.

America and Israel notoriously use chemical, biological and radiological weapons in warfare. Major media report nothing.

Syria was wrongfully blamed throughout years of conflict for using toxic agents – despite no independently verifiable evidence proving it. None exists.

Western War On Libya Imminent

libya-map

In 2011, US-led NATO ravaged Africa’s most developed country. Libya remains a cauldron of violence and chaos, now threatened by ISIS.

Washington helped it establish a foothold in Sirte, a jumping off point to expand to other areas – with designs on Libyan oil, perhaps just a matter of time before it seizes control without efforts to stop their forces.

Sirte is a gateway to several major oil fields and refineries further east. ISIS fighters targeted them before, gaining control of some. Its propaganda claims “Sirte will be no less that Raqqa,” its self-declared Syrian capital.

In mid-December, rival Tobruk and Tripoli agreed on the formation of unity governance, despite numerous tribal groups left out, a shaky arrangement at best.

Despite Libyan officials rejecting a US-led bombing campaign and/or ground operation, reports indicate plans to deploy about 1,000 UK special forces on the pretext of combating ISIS – to be joined by thousands more American, French and Italian combat troops.

On Monday, Britain’s Daily Mirror headlined “SAS (special forces) spearhead coalition offensive to halt Islamic State oil snatches in Libya,” saying:

“The (pretext) is to halt the advance of 5,000 (ISIS) extremists who have seized more than a dozen major oil fields, boosting their war coffers” – aiming to capture “Libya’s prize oil refinery at Marsa al Brega,” North Africa’s largest, located between Sirte and Benghazi, giving them virtual control over all Libyan oil if successful.

US-led NATO forces intend operating in Libya illegally – without government or Security Council authorization.

A likely bombing campaign is imminent, involving US-led warplanes, creating greater violence and turmoil than already – supporting, not combating ISIS, replicating what’s ongoing in Syria and Iraq, striking infrastructure and government targets, acting as the terrorist group’s air force, the campaign to begin in weeks or sooner.

A senior British military source lied to the Mirror, saying “(t)his coalition will provide a wide range of resources from surveillance, to strike operations against Islamic State who have made significant progress in Libya.”

“We have an advance force on the ground who will make an assessment of the situation and identify where attacks should be made and highlight the threats to our forces.”

US-led NATO ravaged and destroyed Libya in 2011 – about to become a bloody battleground again, using ISIS to further Washington’s imperial aims.

The endless ordeal of long-suffering Libyans continues.

A Final Comment

On New Year’s eve, Russia’s Foreign Ministry accused Washington of waging phony war on ISIS – “imitating the struggle against” it.

Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov said America’s Syrian aerial campaign “for (over) a whole year (failed to notice) convoys of fuel tanker trucks with smuggled oil that feeds the terrorists’ forces.”

“(A)n impression is being created that the US-led coalition is hostage to its politicized approach and is rather imitating the struggle against” ISIS.

“The actions of the US-led anti-ISIL coalition in Syria are in principle illegitimate. The sovereignty of that state is openly violated, as neither the UN Security Council, nor official Damascus gave their permission to bombings of Syria to coalition forces.”

Instead of combating the scourge of ISIS and other terrorist groups, Washington openly aids them – the same scheme now planned for Libya.

Ready For World War III With China?

china-president-hu-says-prepare-navy-for-war

With the constant drumbeat that Armageddon is imminent, it is easy to dismiss the geopolitical threats that pose a realpolitik danger. The prospects that definite weapons of mass destruction will engulf the planet in a nuclear winter are upon us once again. After the collapse of the Soviet evil empire, the Reagan – Gorbachev détente provided the world with one of its last hopes for restoring rational international relations. Regretfully, the last superpower used the defeat of the Marxist model of tyranny to impose their Pax American version of a global New World Order. The military machine of NATO, furnished with DARPA technology, would implement the NeoCon policy based upon the interest of the true masters behind the kosher approved empire.

Justin Raimondo poses the question: Are We On the Brink of World War III?

“The end of the cold war did not lead to a “unipolar world,” as Charles Krauthammer and his fellow neocons celebrated it in the early 1990s. Instead of the “benevolent global hegemony” envisioned by Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan in their nineties foreign policy manifesto, we are back to the pre-WWI era of old-fashioned inter-imperialist rivalry. Instead of the “end of history,” we stand at the beginning of a new era of nationalism, religious fanaticism, and ideologically-driven violence. Combined with the structural incentives for conflict inherent in our system of alliances and the built-in dangers of a policy of “collective security,” this is a recipe for another world war.”

The compulsion of the Neoconservatives toward belligerent intervention never serves the interests or enhances the security of the American citizenry. So when China Joins Russia, Orders Military To Prepare For World War III, what is really behind the rhetoric?

“Hu’s call for war joins Chinese Rear Admiral and prominent military commentator Zhang Zhaozhong who, likewise, warned this past week that: “China will not hesitate to protect Iran even with a Third World War,” and Russian General Nikolai Makarov who grimly stated last week: “I do not rule out local and regional armed conflicts developing into a large-scale war, including using nuclear weapons.”

From the Trenches attempts to answer this question in the article, Is China gearing up to start World War III? “My take on this is that China’s latest foray into international threat-mongering is indicative of two factors: a desire on the part of the Chinese government to be prepared for any eventuality — and that could include war — and a desire to warn the West that they’re willing to be prepared for any eventuality — and that could include war.”

With this backdrop in mind, the buzz from the seminal Paul Craig Roberts essay, The Two Faux Democracies Threaten Life On Earth, lays out the hubris that underpins this updated vision in the MAD doctrine of victory. Deterrence be dammed, mutually assured destruction is pointless, when preempted aggression has the war machine of absolute annihilation under your command. Dr. Roberts concludes:

“The post World War II wars originate in Washington and Israel. No other country has imperial expansionary ambitions. The Chinese government has not seized Taiwan, which China could do at will. The Russian government has not seized former constituent parts of Russia, such as Georgia, which, provoked by Washington to launch an attack, was instantly overwhelmed by the Russian Army. Putin could have hung Washington’s Georgian puppet and reincorporated Georgia into Russia, where it resided for several centuries and where many believe it belongs.

For the past 68 years, most military aggression can be sourced to the US and Israel. Yet, these two originators of wars pretend to be the victims of aggression. It is Israel that has a nuclear arsenal that is illegal, unacknowledged, and unaccountable. It is Washington that has drafted a war plan based on nuclear first strike. The rest of the world is correct to view these two rogue unaccountable governments as direct threats to life on earth.”

The YouTube US Now Determined Highest Priority To Nuclear First Strike China, provides details and perspective on a provision in NDAA authorization.

This chilling first strike war plan, disclosed in the frightening report – Who Authorized Preparations for War with China? – has to send shivers up the spine of any thinking person. “The United States is preparing for a war with China, a momentous decision that so far has failed to receive a thorough review from elected officials, namely the White House and Congress. This important change in the United States’ posture toward China has largely been driven by the Pentagon.”

While the author of this paper, Amitai Etzioni, states, “I am not arguing that the U.S. military is seeking out war or intentionally usurping the role of the highest civilian authorities”, the intentional preparation for a pre-empt Dr. Strangelove nuke attack is absurd on its face.

However, placing the blame for this switch in strategic targeting that have China in the cross hair alignment has a direct connection to the Zhang Zhaozhong comments in defense of Iran. If you take away anything from this assessment heed the reality of Zionist dominance and foremost influence on American foreign policy that Paul Craig Roberts identifies so clearly.

China does not want an apocalyptic war with the United States. They are content to wage economic and financial warfare. Notwithstanding the trade dependency that the globalist cabal originated by the Nixon-Kissinger tools with the Red Communists, the authoritarian People’s Republic of China, are winning the financial battle.

Max Hastings in the MailOnline article, Will World War III be between the U.S. and China?, correctly concludes.

“Beyond mere sabre-rattling, China is conducting increasingly sophisticated cyber-warfare penetration of American corporate, military and government computer systems. For now, their purpose seems exploratory rather than destructive.

But the next time China and the United States find themselves in confrontation, a cyber-conflict seems highly likely. The potential impact of such action is devastating, in an era when computers control almost everything.”

If the actual existential national security of the United States is at stake from a Chinese military combat threat, one had better remember the faithful wisdom of General Douglas MacArthur “Never Fight a Land War in Asia”. Could the lesson of the failed Iraqi and Afghanistan wars finally be sinking in? Surely, the military-industrial-complex ignored the cogent field marshal’s insight in Viet Nam. Heretofore, the foreign affairs and armed forces geniuses preparing their Sino war plans must be looking to their robot drone battalions for their sneak Amerikan “Pearl Harbor” mission.

The dirty little secret is out as Chuck Hagel warns: Troops are ‘close to the breaking point’.

“Our people are strong and resilient after 12 years of war, but they are under stress — and so are the institutions that support them.”

“Strengthening readiness will ultimately demand that we address unsustainable growth in personnel costs, which represent half of the department’s budget and crowds out vital spending on training and modernization,” he said. “If trends continue, we could ultimately be left with a much smaller force that is well-compensated but poorly trained and equipped. That would be unacceptable.”

Logical, is it not? Just push a few buttons and use those Trident missiles, while you have the advantage. How else can a dying empire survive unless by waging war?

How outrageous and idiotic this government has become for even having a discussion on starting a nuclear war. Before his railroading and incarceration, Edgar Steele wrote the essay, World War 3.

“The world economy is so broken due to plundering by International bankers and other Zionist elite that Depression II is inevitable. Just like WWII and Depression I, WWIII will be the only way to distract people from their impending economic misery, mask the effects of Depression II and get economies going again. Just like WWII and Depression I, international bankers and other Zionist elite will be the real beneficiaries by loaning and selling to all sides and once again scooping up small businesses, farms and residences for one-tenth their value.”

Another major war is on the horizon, but whether it will be a global conflagration is yet, proven. Revelations final conflict will come to pass, but the time of its occurrence is not known to man. How ironic and ludicrous those planners are looking to copy a disastrous Yamamoto strategy and have the arrogance to believe that they are omniscient.

A useful analogy compares the Daleks, a fictional extraterrestrial race of mutants from the British TV Doctor Who series, with the satanic globalist death merchants that thrive on human suffering and ruin. This tribe of moneychangers, bent on universal conquest and destruction, has brought down countless societies.

The Chinese capitalists’ nouveau riche never lost their repressive attitude and undemocratic culture towards their ‘coolie class”. That is a trait, which coincides with their globalist gangster partners. Allowing a Hiroshima radiation of Chinese joint venture assets does not advance the final subjugation of the planet, for the fascist corporatists. Ever since Zionism conquered the United States, this country has been ruled under Talmud precepts that only benefit the NWO master plan.

Patriotism And Civil Disobedience

patriotism roosevelt

“Man is the only Patriot. He sets himself apart in his own country, under his own flag, and sneers at the other nations, and keeps multitudinous uniformed assassins on hand at heavy expense to grab slices of other people’s countries, and keep them from grabbing slices of his. And in the intervals between campaigns he washes the blood of his hands and works for “the universal brotherhood of man”- with his mouth. – “The Lowest Animal”  by Mark Twain 

As the NATO juggernaut directed by a U.S. NeoCon foreign policy marches towards a nuclear confrontation with Russia, the American public is being manipulated to accept that Foggy Bottom knows best. Even under the placid Obama regime, the chicken hawks are able to restart a new cold war that is getting hotter by the moment. The singular opportunity to forge a lasting peace after the fall of the Soviet Union has been squandered by the globalists, who lust after their only superpower status. Well, the time is approaching for payback. Only God can prevent the annihilation from WWIII, since Dr. Strangelove has the code for the nukes and the culture that permeates military planning actually believes that a nuclear war can be won. 

This is the context that underpins the cry for citizens to demonstrate their trusting patriotism in an ongoing internationalist regime that seeks a permanent empire.  

When George Washington spoke of patriotism as “It may be laid down as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every Citizen who enjoys the protection of a Free Government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even of his personal services to the defense of it”, it is unimaginable that he would see current administrations as the embodiment of a Free Government, or that citizens have a moral obligation to defend an aggressive interventionist imperia that is endangering the survival of the entire planet. 

Honest Conservatives reject Neo Conservatism as a perversion of true national interests. The irony that an internationalist like Teddy Roosevelt would be lionized as a great patriot is attributed to his strong persona, while ignoring the consequences of his entanglement policies. His carrying of a “Big Stick” set the stage for the 21st century of using a blunt club.  

What exactly is patriotic about sending generations of youth, to be used as cannon fodder, for the sole purpose and benefit of global elites, who really rule our country?  When TR says: “Patriotism means to stand by the country” has become a meaningless viewpoint, since the control of the government is in foreign hands that have destroyed all semblance of what once existed as OUR Country.  

Popular public polls always provide higher support for the President than for legislators in Congress. Because of no small measure, the House and Senate have abdicated their constitutional duties in foreign policy since the Korean War. Leaving to the executive branch the full weight of determining relations with foreign nations has allowed the decisive influence to be concentrated in the State Department establishment. 

While the military-industrial-security-complex and the intelligent community agencies are the dominant power behind the globalist policy, the treasonous elites and foreign Banksters who control the strings are the only benefactors after the body count is compiled.   

Under this set of circumstances, what actual duty does a loyal American have to do the bidding of a corrupt and illegitimate government? Do you believe that George Washington fought the Revolution to allow the City of London to rule over the foreign policies of our own country?  

Even though the last two centuries have decidedly been influenced if not totally compromised by foreign agents, especially those among the Rothschild central banking cabal, the final responsibility for the loss of our country lies with the American people.

Americans have seldomly exemplified a burning desire to understand the truth. Most are content to believe that their leaders are good men and women and have the best interests of the nation as their goal. The fact that such a myth bears little resemblance with reality never gets through to the flag flying households that proudly display their Love It or Leave It bumper stickers.  

Their uncritical and all consuming Patriotism is a false and destructive sentiment. By allowing the mass media manipulation and distorted historical lessons to be accepted as mainstream culture, the forces of global dominance are able to achieve their worldwide governance.  

Now this assessment is disturbing to many people and the bearer of the message risks becoming ostracized from polite society. Yet, such a reaction does not refute the accuracy of the argument. 

What can or should a responsible citizen do to prevent the systematic betrayal of our country and the even more important, what can be done to stop the madness of NATO’s belligerency?  The Russian Federation under Putin is not the same threat of the Soviet Union of Lenin or Stalin. 

The practice of civil disobedience is most closely associated with fringe or radical dissenters. Ever since the demonstrations of burning draft cards and wearing the stars and stripes as bandanas of the Viet Nam era, the silent and moral majority became distrustful of protests. Nonetheless, the public display of discontent has influenced the body politick more than voting between bi-partisan clones of the same established order. 

Every rational person instinctively understands that money interests exert the primacy influence over public policy. Laws are administered and enforced according to the legal judiciary that operates, not as an arbitrator or adjudicator for justice, but as a protector of the patrician system.

Defiance has a charm about the image that movies exemplify, but little support when it comes down to popular engagement. The Henry David Thoreau of Philosophy may be discussed in conversation, but is seldomly practiced in ordinary life decision.  

People have surrendered their courage to confront governmental abuses. As the docility of personality becomes the normal standard for the “Political Correct” culture, government is emboldened to discard the public opinion that differs with official policy.

Taking to the street is seen in Europe frequently, even if it not reported on the nightly news. In the Brian Williams version of embellishment, the civilian receptor of perpetual war propaganda is blinded by the non news in order to accept the phony narrative. As the latest “Wag the Dog” episode of this year’s “War on Terror” play for the crowd, the ISIL miniseries gets overshadowed in the rating with the Ukraine designer conflict. 

Those who believe the sirens sounds from the triplets – Jen Psaki, Marie Harf and “Big NeoCon Mama” Victoria Nuland over at the State Department, are the most pathetic patriot impostors imaginable. Lost in the spin is that the State Department was an eager participant behind the Ukraine coup d’etat 

However, public apathy persists that the notion of spontaneous civil disobedience combustion is totally absent from public consciousness. With the susceptibility of simulated patriotic appeals, the swayable dullards will demand retaliation after the next cover-up deception is triggered.  

In a social order where it is impossible to throw out the bums in elections and courts will not follow the constitution, the lonely protestor has few options. Civil disobedience may not be popular in a psychologically induced environment, but denial is never a positive choice when tyranny is the official mode of rule. 

With the announcement that Israeli’s Benjamin Netanyahu’s March 3 speech to Congress, the stakes are dramatically raised to eliminate Syria and Iran as a threat to the greater Zionist state and worse yet, to marginalize Russia and demonize Putin as a devil incarnate.  

When the media cheerleaders do their usual genuflections for Bibi’s call to arms, the rest of us are being used as bargaining chips to force a total capitulation or face nuclear destruction. If this is not an overwhelming reason to call for our own government to stand down, what would be? Threats from Israel that they will use their nukes against anyone who defies their demands, illustrates, who the real belligerent is in the region. 

The upside down nature of the authentic patriotism and what passes as a blank check for brinkmanship madness should be clear to even the least informed. Still, the inevitable responses to those, who demonstrate or employ protest with civil disobedience, are put up as enemies of the state. 

These are times for sober reflection. Dispel the manufactured and false flag crisis and concentrate on the bona fide threats that reside within our own shores. Fifth column subversives have assumed key position within the government. Their loyalty to causes or countries other than our own is a core factor in the insecurity that prevails.  

If civil disobedience is not your cup of tea, start digging your bomb shelter. The odds that our Congressional Representatives will grow a backbone are remote. Presidents view themselves as the most powerful and supreme leader of the world as opposed to an American servant.  

Dissent is the true patriotism when it is focused on eliminating despotism and restoring our foreign policy in keeping with George Washington’s Farewell Address. If you really love your country, put an end to the gunboat armadas of the TR mentality and follow the lead of the father of your country. 

Americans need to mature and grow-up. The dangerous world we live in was created largely because of the militarized intervention of the imperial U.S. Empire. Drawing lines in the sands of the Middle East is only superseded in pushing Russia to accept Ukraine to become a NATO member.

“If patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel, it is not merely because evil deeds may be performed in the name of patriotism, but because patriotic fervor can obliterate moral distinctions altogether.” – Ralph B Perry

Iraq’s Longstanding Nightmare

Washington bears full responsibility for the Middle East’s longstanding nightmare, partnered with rogue Israeli, NATO and Arab regimes. Call it the curse of oil – Iraq Exhibit A.

From America’s orchestrated Iran/Iraq war to Operation Desert Storm, to years of genocidal sanctions, to Operation Iraqi Freedom, to ongoing out-of-control raging violence and chaos, its imperial madness destroyed the cradle of civilization, replacing it with endless dystopian harshness – one of history’s greatest crimes, accountability nowhere in sight.

Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II and Obama committed high crimes against peace. Millions of Iraqis suffered and died from September 1980 to the present.

Millions today endure unspeakable misery – living in an endless war zone, security and stability entirely absent. The curse of US created and supported ISIS haunts them.

Residents fleeing war-torn Ramadi recounted their ordeal under ISIS control. Many families risked death to escape starvation, misery and use as human shields.

Iraq forces detained freed men, suspicious of ISIS terrorists among them. Pockets of the city remain in their control. Hundreds of their fighters haven’t quit, including in central areas.

Streets and buildings are booby-trapped. Unexploded ordnance is everywhere. Water, power and other infrastructure essentials are destroyed, badly damaged or inoperable, according the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

It’s unclear how long it’ll take for residents to feel safe to return. Anbar’s provincial council head Sabah Karhot said as much as 80% of Ramadi was destroyed.

The area has been continuously at war for over two years, ISIS fighters capturing the city last May. Iraqi forces retook most of it this week, including the compound housing the provincial government.

Hundreds managing to escape fighting are sheltered in an Anbar displaced persons camp under miserable conditions. Umm Mustafa and her family believed they wouldn’t survive.

They nearly starved to death in Ramadi. ISIS used them as human shields. Hundreds of other Iraqis endured a similar ordeal.

“There were no doctors, no food, no water,” said Umm. “It was real misery how we lived, but we couldn’t open our mouths or we would be killed.”

They were threatened with death if attempts to escape were made. They were used as human shields against Iraqi forces.

“They were doing this on purpose, and they were telling us that as long as you’re close to us, nobody will hurt us,” Umm explained.

“When they gathered us in one place, they said: ‘You represent protection for us. Without you, we will be attacked and killed.’ “

Another resident said they were told to go with ISIS fighters or they’d blow up their houses with them inside.

Facing certain death from starvation or violence, Umm and her husband decided to act – carefully moving through Ramadi’s rubble, seeking minimal shelter wherever possible, telling ISIS patrols when detected they were looking for food.

When they spotted the Iraqi flag atop a visible building, they made run for safety, miraculously managing to survive – somehow avoiding ISIS live fire trying to stop them.

At one point, they were in no-man’s land between two opposing forces. They heard Iraqi soldiers over a loudspeaker urging them to keep fleeing.

They decided risking death was better than living under ISIS. Somehow they made it to safety – with no assurance of what’s to come.

Endless violence and chaos continues. Front lines keep shifting. Residents under ISIS control were brutalized prisoners, death haunting them every day from war, starvation and overall deprivation.

Washington bears full responsibility. It created and continues supporting the ISIS monster – ravaged countries, mass slaughter, vast destruction and appalling human misery the price it inflicts to advance its imperium.

No greater pure evil exists on planet earth – a menace threatening humanity everywhere.

More War On Libya Ahead?

libya-map

A splintered nation reeling from devastating 2011 US-led naked aggression faces the prospect of more war – opposite of what it needs to begin healing.

America, Britain and France are preparing to intervene on the phony pretext of combating ISIS’ new stronghold in Sirte, aiming for greater territorial control – despite elements of rival Tripoli/Tobruk groups opposed.

Tripoli Prime Minister Khalifa Ghawi led a ministry delegation to Moscow. He met with Sergey Lavrov and other Russian officials, after the meeting, saying:

“We have asked the international community, and first of all, Russia, an important country helping the Libyan people, to confront terrorism and radicalization, to provide logistical and military support in the fight against terrorism. The Russian response was that they were ready to help any country” combat a common scourge.

Libya remains in turmoil following Obama’s 2011 aggression. Rival Tripoli/Tobruk elements agreeing to unity governance changes little on the ground.

Numerous tribal groups were excluded from their deal – shaky at best as most internal political and military elements oppose it. Local issues and concerns were ignored.

Gridlock and turmoil gives ISIS room to expand its presence in Libya beyond its Sirte stronghold, aiming to control its valued oil fields.

US-led foreign intervention may proceed on the phony pretext of aiding the new Government of National Accord (GNA) combat ISIS.

Most Tripoli and Tobruk politicians as well as groups excluded from the deal oppose it – calling it US-led foreign intervention, Libya’s fate since 2011.

On Wednesday, Security Council Resolution 2259 passed unanimously, recognizing GNA as Libya’s legitimate government –  formally agreed to by members of both rival sides on December 17.

At the same time, only 80 of 188 lawmakers from Libya’s internationally recognized Tobruk parliament and 50 of 136 members of the rival Tripoli-based General National Congress approved the deal.

It calls for a 17-member government, headed by businessman Fayez el-Sarraj as prime minister, based in Tripoli. A presidential council would serve for two years until new legislative elections are held.

Once officially installed, the new government may request international help in combating ISIS and other terrorist groups, notably military intervention involved cooperatively with Libyan ground forces.

Rival Tripoli-based Foreign Minister Abu Zaakouk said new unity governance may ask for Russian intervention against ISIS.

US-supported elements will try blocking it, perhaps paving the way to pressure the new government to seek Western help  – Libya 2.0 if launched, greater devastation to the war-torn country, aiding, not opposing ISIS.

Western endorsed Libyan UN ambassador Ibrahim al-Dabashi said he expects airstrikes involving US, UK, French and Italian warplanes.

Newly passed Security Council Res. 2259 “asks all countries to fight terrorism in Libya, which represents a clear-cut authorization only requiring of different countries to inform the government in Libya in advance, (get permission) and coordinate with it.”

For the moment, things are on hold, perhaps through the holiday period. In January, Libya may face more war. Whether Western and Russian aircraft will be involved remains to be seen.

Each side has polar opposite objectives. US-led NATO countries and rogue regional allies support the scourge they claim to oppose.

This Animated Data Visualization Of World War II Fatalities Is Shocking (VIDEO)

graph-728x400

Peace on earth: a statement heard around the world and an ideal that most of seem to want to yet have no idea how to attain. It seems like conflicts and wars are a reality in every part of the world, every single day. From religious battles to political quarrels, we seem to find a way to make our differences and thirst for power and control lead us to battle time and time again. And while everything I’m saying is true, there’s probably something you haven’t considered that may shock you. It may even get you seeing that we are actually quite close to having peace on earth as we speak.

The video below tells a tale of WW II fatalities that puts into perspective the true cost of war today. It was written, directed, coded, and narrated by Neil Halloran over at fallen.io/ww2/.

“The Fallen of World War II is an interactive documentary that examines the human cost of the second World War and the decline in battle deaths in the years since the war. The 15-minute data visualization uses cinematic storytelling techniques to provide viewers with a fresh and dramatic perspective of a pivotal moment in history.”

When we think of war or a lack of peace in our world we think something is wrong with the world. One perspective I’d love to challenge is our reluctance to accept that there is nothing ‘wrong’ with the world. I’m not saying we need to lie down and accept things we don’t wish to see, but simply that we need to recognize that everything in our world, in a deeper sense, is showing us something. War and conflict included! It’s teaching us what we can create, or have created, and what is a result of our human consciousness as it is today. I feel that only when we can come to that understanding and see that we don’t have to hate or fight violently that which we don’t like, will we find an evolution of the way we are living and treating each other on this earth. A collective evolution.

More Evidence Of Turkish Complicity With ISIS In Selling Stolen Oil

oil isis turkey syria

Turkey is a pariah nation, a tyrannical crime syndicate masquerading as a nation-state, run by international outlaws. President Erdogan governs like a mafia godfather, intolerant of opposition and criticism.

Nothing of consequence goes on without his direct knowledge and approval. Various illicit activities let him, his family, and other top regime officials profit hugely.

His minions are involved with CIA agents and US special forces in training ISIS recruits on Turkish territory. Their fighters move freely back and forth cross-border to Syria and Iraq. They’re regularly provided with arms, munitions and other supplies.

Turkish officials maintain the fiction of delivering humanitarian aid to so-called moderate rebels. No one can find them. They don’t exist.

Officials at the highest level of Erdogan’s regime are involved in smuggling, refining and black market sales of stolen Syrian and Iraqi oil – an industrial scale operation generating millions of dollars in daily revenues. Russia publicly presented documented video and other detailed evidence of ISIS’ oil truck pipeline transport operation extending for miles – smuggling crude freely cross-border daily into Turkey for refining and black market sales.

The whole world knows what’s going on despite Western officials and media downplaying or ignoring a scheme demanding intervention to stop.

ISIS’ strength lies in its foreign support, notably from Washington, and ability to raise enormous amounts of money through various illicit activities to keep their killing machine well financed.

Russia is the only nation along with Syrian ground forces, Hezbollah fighters, and Iranian advisors actively targeting its operations, bombing its oil facilities and truck transport pipeline. US-led coalition countries maintain the pretense of doing the same thing while actively supporting the scourge they claim to oppose.

It bears repeating. Without foreign support, especially from Washington and other major powers, ISIS and other terrorist groups couldn’t exist. At most they’d be minor nuisances, easily contained. Instead, their paymasters permit them to thrive. Russia’s intervention significantly changed things on the ground, but it’s slow-going. ISIS and other terrorist groups control vast amounts of Syrian and Iraqi territory.

Retaking it requires protracted struggle – city by city, town by town, village by village, and securing recaptured areas. Bashar al-Assad is right. Cut off all foreign support and Syria can be liberated in a year or less. Maintaining it assures endless conflict – precisely what Washington wants despite rhetorical claims otherwise.

Hegemons change strategies and tactics, not ultimate objectives. Washington wants Assad and all other independent leaders ousted – replaced by Western-controlled stooges, the reason for US imperial wars.

The aim is unchallenged global dominance. It remains rock-hard firm throughout the entire post-WW II era – more-so today than ever because of bipartisan neocon lunatics infesting Washington.

A Norwegian daily Klassekampen report supplied the latest evidence of Turkey’s oil smuggling operations complicit with ISIS – prepared at the request of Norway’s Foreign Ministry with Rystad Energy, an independent oil and gas consulting firm.

“Large amounts of oil have been smuggled across the border to Turkey from IS-controlled areas in Syria and Iraq,” Klassekampen reported. It’s “sent by tankers via smuggling routes across the border (and then) sold at greatly reduced prices…”

Vladmir Putin maintains ISIS gets direct aid from around 40 countries, including G20 ones, notably America, Britain and France, along with Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Israel and others.

“Exports happen in a well-established black market via Turkey,” Klassekampen’s report explained. “Many of the smugglers and corrupt border guards, who helped Saddam Hussein avoid international sanctions, are now helping (ISIS) export oil and import cash.”

Corruption in Turkey goes right to the top. Russia accused Ankara of direct involvement at the highest levels of its regime. Their criminality continues because US-led Western countries turn a blind eye.
