Paul Craig Roberts: The CIA May Have Just Assassinated Boris Nemtsov In Moscow To Blame Putin

EDITOR’S CHOICE | 28.02.2015 | 23:37

On the heels of the news out of Moscow that Boris Nemtsov was gunned down, today Dr. Paul Craig Roberts spoke with King World News about the CIA and the murder of Nemtsov.  This is a fascinating trip down the rabbit hole with the former U.S. Treasury official as he is warning that the CIA may be out of control.

Paul Craig Roberts just told KWN:  “There are numerous historians and memoirs that have documented that the CIA has used academic professors and journalists to support the CIA’s agenda.  The CIA for many, many decades has been manipulating the American people.

KWN Roberts 2:28:2015

CIA Out Of Control

All I can tell you is that the CIA is powerful and has never had its wings clipped.  If the Church Committee Hearings (pictured above) weren’t able to rein it in, I would suspect it’s literally out of control.

Look At What They Did To Kennedy When He Was About To Take On The CIA

You have to keep in mind that when President John F. Kennedy found out what was really going on with the CIA and tried to do something about it, they simply assassinated him.  This is according to many well-researched histories and eyewitnesses.”

King World News Roberts 2:28:2015

Boris Nemtsov, pictured above, was just assassinated in Moscow.

The CIA May Have Just Assassinated Boris Nemtsov In Moscow To Blame Putin

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts Former U.S. Treasury Official

February 28 (King World News) – Boris Nemtsov, a Russian dissident politician highly critical of President Vladimir Putin often sounded like an agent of Washington. He was shot and killed today on a street near Red Square.

If Nemtsov wasn’t assassinated by the CIA in order to blame Putin, most likely Nemtsov was killed by Russian nationalists who saw him as Washington’s agent.

Remembering the Magnitsky affair that resulted in sanctions imposed on Russians as a result of the US Congress over-reacting to a jail death in Russia, Nemtsov’s death will likely be blamed on Putin. The Western media will repeat endlessly, with no evidence, that Putin had his critic killed.

KWN Roberts II 2:28:2015

“Putin Much Too Smart To Play Into Washington’s Hands”

I can tell you one thing, and that is that Putin is much too smart to play into Washington’s hands in this way. Moreover, Nemtsov, although a loud mouth, had no impact on Putin’s 85% approval rating. Nemtsov’s support resided in the Washington-funded NGOs in Russia.

KWN Roberts IV 2:27:2015

CIA Assassinates Nemtsov?

If the CIA assassinated Nemtsov, they killed their own asset. It remains to be seen if the propaganda gains justify the CIA’s loss of a Putin critic.”

From Bloomberg: Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said by phone that “the president noted that there are all the signs that this was a hit and also an extreme provocation.”

Mass crowd in Yarmouk demanding departure of terrorists

SYRIA 360°

1

Damascus, SANA

Hundreds of al-Yarmouk camp residents gathered at the entrance of the camp demanding the exit of terrorists to enable the locals to return to their houses.

The participants condemned the crimes committed by terrorists and stressed that terrorists are tools of the U.S. – Zionist hostile schemes in Syria and the region.

Head of the Reconciliation Committee in the camp Sheikh Mohammad al-Omari said the purpose of the gathering is reminding the public opinion of the tragedies of the Palestinians and Syrians who used to live here, adding that the true jihad should be against those who occupied the Arab lands and denied the Palestinians their right to return to their houses.

Head of al-Yarmouk branch of al-Baath Arab Socialist Party said the gathering stresses that forcing the locals to leave their houses is part of the conspiracy against Syria and the Palestinian cause, adding that the terrorists have proved that they are connected to foreign agendas and do not want the suffering of the locals ended.

Ramsey Clark: U.S. training terrorists in Syria is a dangerous practice

ClarkDamascus, (SANA)Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark said that the U.S. training of groups of terrorists in Syria is a dangerous practice that aims at escalating fighting.

In an interview given to the Syrian TV on Friday, Clark said that training and arming individuals to take part in violence against another country is unacceptable and isn’t the right way to achieve world peace, adding that arms dealers are part of the problem of violence in the world.

He asserted that arming terrorists goes against U.S. laws, and that the U.S. is fully responsible if the weapons it provides fall into the arms of terrorists.

Clark, who visited Syria as part of a delegation of U.S. activists, said that Syria is going through hard times, and so he was motivated by his love for it to visit it and talk to some sides and see if he can help, adding that the Syrian government is working to avoid violence.

He said that terrorism can be stopped through group efforts by affected countries according to international laws and legal accountability.

Syria on the side of justice and should be supported against terrorism

Ramsey Clark-Minister of Justice

Damascus, SANA

Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark said Syria is on the side of justice and justice always has the upper hand over force.

During his meeting with Minister of Justice Najm Hamad al-Ahmad on Thursday, Clark added that those who stand by Syria’s side should get united in the face of fighting terrorism and its backers.

Clark, who is on a visit to Syria heading a delegation of American activities, said terrorism is a common threat to everybody and Syria is jeopardized by terrorists, stressing the need to maintain Syria as a free, independent and sovereign state.

We have to figure out ways to preserve Syria through peaceful solutions, warning that having the crisis in Syria dragging on poses a threat to the entire humanity.

Clark hailed the Syrian people’s unity and adherence to their government in the face of the terror danger.

For his part, Justice Minister said Syria will go ahead with fighting terrorism, noting that the Ministry will file suits against all organizations and countries, including the US and Western states, which have been supporting terrorism to take them to court.

To that end, the al-Ahmad said the Ministry has prepared three reports documenting the terrorists’ crimes in Syria which will be put forth in the course of the effort to prosecute the countries and personalities involved in backing terrorism.

He handed over a copy of those reports to Clark.

Former Israeli Spy Officials Admit Failure in Blocking Deal with Iran

Local Editor

Iran nuclear plantFormer Zionist intelligence officers admitted that Tel Aviv has failed to block the Iranian nuclear program, warning of the negative repercussions against the Jewish entity in case a deal between Iran and the West is reached.

Speaking to the Zionist Channel 10, a former Mossad head, Jacob Perry, said that the recent negotiations imply a high motivation of the US administration to sign a deal with the Islamic Republic without thinking of imposing sanctions that might allow monitoring, following up and interference when needed.

For his part, Amos Yadlin, former head of military intelligence, voiced concerns about how the Zionist entity can ensure that Iranians will halt uranium enrichment when they reach the limit they need for their peaceful program.

“If their (Iranians’) program advanced, what the very tough sanction would be. This has to be agreed upon between Israel and the United States,” he told the Jewish channel.

Moreover, the Zionist pessimistic view of the future regarding a possible deal with Iran led former officers to call for putting the military option on table once again.

“Lifting sanctions on Iran, as well as visits of Presidents and ministers to Tehran for economic transactions, will give it further power which might be exploited in other fields of concern to us,” Giora Eiland, former Zionist National Security Advisor, said to the Hebrew media outlet.

Former Zionist officers frequently reiterate warnings  of harming the relations between the United States because of the Iranian nuclear program, which they believe will put Tel Aviv “in a tight corner.”

Talks on Tehran’s nuclear program have made substantial progress, and a spokeswoman for the European Commission said in Brussels Friday that senior diplomats from the six world powers (US, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany) and Iran will resume talks on a nuclear agreement in Montreux, Switzerland on Tuesday.

IDLIB’S TERRORISTS FEEDING ON EACH OTHER – RAT DEFENSES CRUMBLING; SYRIAN ARMY PLUGS MORE OF THE JORDANIAN BORDER

10462674_750309411709379_229817570218886737_n

IDLIB: There is no question any longer about supplies from Turkey.  As hard as Erdoghan is trying to facilitate the movement of terrorists into Syria and Iraq, he’s not succeeding as far as resupply is concerned.  With Hakan Fidan out of the picture on the intelligence side and in the picture as a potential candidate for Parliament, Erdoghan is left with a deputy head of MIT to run affairs.  It is not certain how zealous the new head of MIT is with regard to subverting relations with neighboring countries.  As of today, it seems the terrorists are more interested in stealing the weapons possessed by other groups than in fighting the vastly superior Syrian Arab Army.  If some of you are befuddled by the seeming lull in the fighting, be advised the army is now just watching the rats cannibalizing one another.  It’s beautiful.

Abu Dhuhoor Airbase:  They can’t get in. Nusra and Ahraar Al-Shaam have given it their all and they are spent.  Since February 18, 2015, there has been no action here.  Wael confirms no evidence they are regrouping or reforming to mount another assault.  The SAAF has been very active over this site when weather conditions permit.  The base is fully resupplied and reinforcements have been posted.

Umm Jareen:  Continued skirmishing.  The SAA’s strategy is to starve the enemy here and to insure no resupply.  Tanks are regularly used to provoke firing from the rat side to further cause attrition in both lives and materiel.  The rats are not long for this area.

Tal Salmu:  Same philosophy being used here.  With supply lines cut, more and more rats are surrendering leaving the die-hard foreigners to die.

Hallooz Village: This picturesque village overlooking the town of Jisr Al-Shughoor with its population of troglodytes, is my deceased mother-in-law’s ancestral village.  It contains streets reminiscent of the Bible, narrow and cobblestoned, with a church under which a water spring pours a delicious, clean and cool stream of water.  It’s no wonder Britain’s rodents have tried to settle here; after all, what do you have similar to this in Libya or Tunisia?  Most of the rodents from other countries come from impoverished backgrounds and find the atmosphere in Hallooz to be most refreshing.  Until yesterday when 14 were killed trying to return to the village.  Here are the only identified rats:

Milhim Nu’maan

Jaabir ‘Ali Salhaf

The rest were all clearly foreign, many having features typical of North Africans.  No survivors.

Duwwayr Al-Akraad:  9 hyenas were killed in a firefight here when the SAA invaded a nest pointed out by loyal citizens who have had enough of England’s rabid savages.  I have no names.

Ma’arrat Hurma:  Heavy fighting on February 24, 2015 with the SAA continuing to close all pathways out of the area.  It is a matter of time before the Syrian elements surrender, if allowed to, and the foreigners shall all go straight to Hell.

Similar strategies being applied in these areas: Qar’ Al-Ghazaal, Al-Hoota, Jabal Al-Akraad, Al-Shughur, ‘Ayn Al-Baarida, Al-Qatroon, Ma’arrat-Massreen.  

_____________________________________________________________

DER’AH:

syrian army

Tal-‘Antar:  The Syrian Army has established complete control over this town effectively inserting more corks in bottlenecks used by the terrorists to infiltrate murdering savages and weapons into Syria from Jordan.  We hope King Abdullah enjoys the company of rats in his country – especially ones with their backs against the wall.

Kafr Naasij: In addition to the rat leader and field commander, Abu ‘Umar Al-Mukhtaar, whose descent into Hell we reported yesterday, these also were announced today on terrorist websites:

“Abu Al-Jarraah Al-Jurdhi” (Id pending.  He was Alqaeda’s Southern Front Canonical Judge. Hilarious.)

Muhammad Qateesh

Mahmoud Al-Ghawthaani

CITY: At the Bilaal Al-Habashi Mosque and the Camp Quarter, a cannon and a 23mm Doschka were seized and immediately transferred to our PDC for use in killing Wahhabists.

___________________________________________________________________

AL-SUWAYDAA:

SYRIAN ARMY

Tal Al-Majda’:  This town sits on a major route for smuggling cannibals and their weapons out of Jordan. No more.  The SAA and PDC cleared it out and have established unchallenged control over it.

In Midst of War, Ukraine Becomes Gateway for Jihad

EDITOR’S CHOICE | 27.02.2015 | 22:04

“OUR BROTHERS ARE there,” Khalid said when he heard I was going to Ukraine. “Buy a local SIM card when you get there, send me the number and then wait for someone to call you.”

Khalid, who uses a pseudonym, leads the Islamic State’s underground branch in Istanbul. He came from Syria to help control the flood of volunteers arriving in Turkey from all over the world, wanting to join the global jihad. Now, he wanted to put me in touch with Rizvan, a “brother” fighting with Muslims in Ukraine.

The “brothers” are members of ISIS and other underground Islamic organizations, men who have abandoned their own countries and cities. Often using pseudonyms and fake identities, they are working and fighting in the Middle East, Africa and the Caucasus, slipping across borders without visas. Some are fighting to create a new Caliphate — heaven on earth.  Others — like Chechens, Kurds and Dagestanis — say they are fighting for freedom, independence and self-determination. They are on every continent, and in almost every country, and now they are in Ukraine, too.

In the West, most look at the war in Ukraine as simply a battle between Russian-backed separatists and the Ukrainian government. But the truth on the ground is now far more complex, particularly when it comes to the volunteer battalions fighting on the side of Ukraine. Ostensibly state-sanctioned, but not necessarily state-controlled, some have been supported by Ukrainian oligarchs, and others by private citizens. Less talked about, however, is the Dudayev battalion, named after the first president of Chechnya, Dzhokhar Dudayev, and founded by Isa Munayev, a Chechen commander who fought in two wars against Russia.

Ukraine is now becoming an important stop-off point for the brothers, like Rizvan. In Ukraine, you can buy a passport and a new identity. For $15,000, a fighter receives a new name and a legal document attesting to Ukrainian citizenship. Ukraine doesn’t belong to the European Union, but it’s an easy pathway for immigration to the West. Ukrainians have few difficulties obtaining visas to neighboring Poland, where they can work on construction sites and in restaurants, filling the gap left by the millions of Poles who have left in search of work in the United Kingdom and Germany.

You can also do business in Ukraine that’s not quite legal. You can earn easy money for the brothers fighting in the Caucasus, Syria and Afghanistan. You can “legally” acquire unregistered weapons to fight the Russian-backed separatists, and then export them by bribing corrupt Ukrainian customs officers.

“Our goal here is to get weapons, which will be sent to the Caucasus,” Rizvan, the brother who meets me first in Kiev, admits without hesitation.

WITH HIS WHITE hair and beard, Rizvan is still physically fit, even at 57. He’s been a fighter his entire adult life. Born in a small mountain village in the Caucasus, on the border between Dagestan and Chechnya, Rizvan belongs to an ethnic minority known as the Lak, who are predominantly Sunni Muslim.

The world that Rizvan inhabits — the world of the brothers — is something new. When he first became a fighter, there wasn’t any Internet or cell phones, or cameras on the street, or drones. Rizvan joined the brothers when the Soviet Union collapsed, and he went to fight for a better world, first against the Russians in Chechnya and Dagestan during the first Chechen war in the mid-1990s. He then moved to Azerbaijan, where he was eventually arrested in 2004 on suspicion of maintaining contact with al Qaeda.

Even though Rizvan admits to fighting with Islamic organizations, he claims the actual basis for the arrest in Azerbaijan — illegal possession of weapons — was false. Authorities couldn’t find anything suspicious where he was living (Rizvan was staying at the time with his “brothers” in the jihad movement) but in his wife’s home they found a single hand grenade. Rizvan was charged with illegal weapons possession and sent to prison for several years.

In prison, he says he was tortured and deliberately housed in a cell with prisoners infected with tuberculosis. Rizvan took his case to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France, accusing the authorities in Azerbaijan of depriving him of due process. The court eventually agreed, and asked the Azerbaijani government to pay Rizvan 2,400 euros in compensation, plus another 1,000 euros for court costs.

But when Rizvan was released from prison, he didn’t want to stay in Azerbaijan, fearing he would be rearrested, or even framed for a crime and again accused of terrorism. “Some of our people disappear and are never found,” he says. “There was one brother [who disappeared], and when he was brought for burial, a card was found showing that he was one of 30 people held in detention in Russia.”

In Russia, a warrant was issued for Rizvan’s arrest. Returning to his small mountain village was out of the question. If he goes back, his family will end up paying for what he does, anyhow. “They get to us through our families,” he says. He condemns those who refused to leave their own country and fight the infidels. This was the choice: either stay, or go abroad where “you can breathe freedom.”

“Man is born free,” Rizvan says. “We are slaves of God and not the slaves of people, especially those who are against their own people, and break the laws of God. There is only one law: the law of God.”

After his release from prison in Azerbaijan, Rizvan became the eternal wanderer, a rebel — and one of the brothers now in Ukraine. He came because Munayev, now head of the Dudayev battalion, decided the brothers should fight in Ukraine. “I am here today because my brother, Isa, called us and said, ‘It’s time to repay your debt,’” Rizvan says. “There was a time when the brothers from Ukraine came [to Chechnya] and fought against the common enemy, the aggressor, the occupier.”

That debt is to Ukrainians like Oleksandr Muzychko, who became one of the brothers, even though he never converted to Islam. Muzyczko, along with other Ukrainian volunteers, joined Chechen fighters and took part in the first Chechen war against Russia. He commanded a branch of Ukrainian volunteers, called “Viking,” which fought under famed Chechen militant leader Shamil Basayev. Muzychko died last year in Ukraine under mysterious circumstances.

Rizvan has been in Ukraine for almost a year, and hasn’t seen his family since he arrived. Their last separation lasted almost seven years. He’s never had time to raise children, or even really to get to know them. Although he’s a grandfather, he only has one son — a small family by Caucasian standards, but better for him, since a smaller family costs less. His wife calls often and asks for money, but Rizvan rarely has any to give her.

I N THE 17th century, the area to the east of the Dnieper River was known as the “wilderness,” an ungoverned territory that attracted refugees, criminals and peasants — a place beyond the reach of the Russian empire. Today, this part of Ukraine plays a similar role, this time for Muslim brothers. In eastern Ukraine, the green flag of jihad flies over some of the private battalions’ bases.

For many Muslims, like Rizvan, the war in Ukraine’s Donbass region is just the next stage in the fight against the Russian empire. It doesn’t matter to them whether their ultimate goal is a Caliphate in the Middle East, or simply to have the Caucuses free of Russian influence — the brothers are united not by nation, but by a sense of community and solidarity.

But the brothers barely have the financial means for fighting or living. They are poor, and very rarely receive grants from the so-called Islamic humanitarian organizations. They must earn money for themselves, and this is usually done by force. Amber is one of the ideas Rizvan has for financing the “company of brothers” fighting in eastern Ukraine — the Dudayev battalion, which includes Muslims from several nations, Ukrainians, Georgians, and even a few Russians.

The brothers had hoped the Ukrainian authorities would appreciate their dedication and willingness to give their lives in defense of Ukrainian sovereignty, but they miscalculated. Like other branches of fighters — Aidar, Azov and Donbass — the government, for the most part, ignores them. They’re armed volunteers outside the control of Kiev, and Ukraine’s politicians also fear that one day, instead of fighting Russians in the east, the volunteers will turn on the government in Kiev. So ordinary people help the volunteers, but it’s not enough. The fighters associated with the Ukrainian nationalist Right Sector get money, cars and houses from the rich oligarchs.

Rizvan has a different plan. He’s afraid that if they begin stealing from the rich, the Ukrainian government will quickly declare their armed branch illegal. He’s decided to work in the underground economy — uncontrolled by the state — which the brothers know best.

Back in the ’90s, the amber mines in the vast forests surrounding the city of Rivne were state-owned and badly run, so residents began illegally mining; it was a chance at easy money. Soon, however, the mafia took over. For the right daily fee, miners could work and sell amber to the mafia at a fixed price: $100 per kilogram. The mafia conspired with local militia, prosecutors and the governor. That was the way business worked.

As a result, although Ukraine officially produces 3 tons of amber annually, more than 15 tons are illegally exported to Poland each year. There, the ore is processed and sold at a substantial profit. The Rivne mines operate 24 hours a day. Hundreds of people with shovels in hand search the forest; they pay less to the mafia, but they extract less amber and earn less. The better off are those who have a water pump. Those people pump water at high pressure into the earth between the trees, until a cavity 2 to 3 meters deep forms. Amber, which is lighter than water, rises to the surface.

At one point, Rizvan disappeared in Rivne for several weeks. When he returned, he was disappointed; he’d failed to convince the local mafia to cooperate with the brothers’ fight for an independent Ukraine. But now, he has other arguments to persuade them. His men are holding up the mines, by not allowing anyone into the forest. Either the local gangsters share their profits, or no one will get paid.

Rizvan doesn’t like this job. He knows it won’t bring him any glory, and could land him in prison. He would have preferred to be among the fighters at the front lines, where everything is clear and clean. He says he can still fight, but he’s already too old to really endure the rigors of battle, even if he doesn’t want to admit it. He may still be physically fit, but fighters don’t usually last longer than a few years. Then they lose their strength and will to fight.

He has other orders from Munayev: he’s supposed to organize a “direct response group” in Kiev. The group will be a sort of rear echelon unit that take care of problems, like if someone tries to discredit the Dudayev battalion. It will also collect debts or scare off competition. There’s no doubt the new branch will work behind the lines, where there isn’t war, but there is money — as long as you know where to get it. If need be, the direct response group volunteers will watch over the mines in Rivne, or “will acquire” money from illegal casinos, which operate by the hundreds in Kiev.

Rizvan sends me photos of the group’s criminal exploits: they came into the casinos with weapons, and broke into the safes and slot machines. They disappeared quickly, and were never punished. The money went to food, uniforms, boots, tactical vests and other equipment necessary for the fighters. The mafia knows they can’t beat them at this game. The brothers are too good, because they are armed and  experienced in battle. The police aren’t interested in getting involved either. In the end, it’s illegal gambling.

I told Rizvan that it’s a dangerous game. He laughed.

“It’s child’s play,” he says. “We used to do this in Dagestan. No one will lift a finger. Don’t worry.”

RIZVAN FINALLY DROVE me to see his “older brother,” to Isa Munayev, and his secret base located many miles west of Donetsk.

Riding in an old Chrysler that Rizvan bought in Poland, we drove for several hours, on potholed and snowy roads. Rizvan had glued to the car one of the emblems of Ukraine’s ATO, the so-called Anti-Terrorist Operation, which includes both soldiers and volunteers in the fight against separatists.

The bumper sticker allows him to drive through police traffic stops without being held up — or if he is stopped, they won’t demand bribes as they do from other drivers. The ATO sticker, Rizvan’s camouflage uniform, and a gun in his belt are enough to settle matters. Policemen salute him and wish him good luck.

He drives fast, not wanting to rest, sleep or even drink coffee. If he stops, it’s to check the compass on his belt to check the direction of Mecca. When it’s time to pray, he stops the car, turns off the engine, places his scarf in the snow and bows down to Allah.

Asked whether — after so many hardships, after so many years, and at his age, almost 60 now — he would finally like to rest, he answered indignantly, “How could I feel tired?”

There’s much more work to do, according to Rizvan. “There’s been a small result, but we will rest only when we’ve reached our goals,” he says. “I’m carrying out orders, written in the Holy Quran. ‘Listen to God, the Prophet.’ And I listen to him and do what I’m told.”

On the way into the city of Kryvyi Rih, we met with Dima, a young businessman — under 40 — but already worth some $5 million. He’s recently lost nearly $3 million from his business in Donetsk, which has been hit hard by the war. Dima worked for Igor Kolomoisky, one of the oligarchs who had been funding Ukraine’s volunteer battalions. Dima and Rizvan have only known each other for a short time. Rizvan claimed Dima owed him a lot of money, although it’s unclear from what. Rizvan kept bothering him, threatening to blackmail him. Finally, he got $20,000 from Dima.

That’s not nearly enough to support the Dudayev battalion. But Rizvan had something bigger to offer Dima: amber. Now, Dima was ready to talk. He came up with the idea to find buyers in the Persian Gulf, including wealthy sheikhs. They would like to sell an entire house of amber: furniture, stairs, floors, and inlaid stones. It only takes contacts, and Rizvan has them. The brothers from Saudi Arabia like to help the jihad in the Caucasus and the Middle East.

The next day, Rizvan was behind the wheel again. The old Chrysler barely moved, its engine overheated. A mechanic with an engineering degree and experience working in Soviet arms factories connected a plastic bottle filled with dirty water to the radiator using a rubber hose.

“I don’t know how long I’ll last,” Rizvan says suddenly. “It depends on God. I’ll probably die on this road. But I don’t have any other road to take.”

France Is Jewish Land

France Is Jewish Land

As a candidate for the presidency of France (which he attained in 2012), during his obligatory ritual appearance in 2011 before CRIF (France’s AIPAC), Nicolas Sarkozy gave his masters his understanding of French history.

The origin of the great French nation, he said, is not only indissolubly linked to the Jewish community, but the French land was Jewish before France was “France” and before it was christianized.

[Was Vercingétorix a Jew ? French national education and Fernand Nathan — the author of most of the pre-school and schoolbook texts in France — ought to research this important information. If he was not a Jew, he may have been an anti-semite. ]

Judaism was present in France, Sarkozy — the historian and philosopher of culture who wished to rise to the top position in the French government — informed his receptive audience, before France was “France” and before it was Christianized — it is a 2,000-years old presence.  There were synagogues there during the Roman empire before there were churches and they were as elaborate as the later [there!] Baroque churches.

That suggests that France belongs to Jews by virtue of the Right of the First Comer/Occupier (Jus primi, or Recht des Ersten). Despite this rightful ownership by the Jewish minority, he went on, all along French history the Jews were invidiously and cruelly persecuted by the late-comers and this continued even after the French Revolution and the creation of the republic, as the Dreyfus case showed.

France is the France of Proust, Sarkozy added,  and of many other Jews (reciting several other Jewish names), and of all the tremendous contributions made by Jews, which all the French get to inherit and enjoy (ungrateful curs that they are).

Thus, the French Jews contribute to the culture and growth of the country which is theirs: the Jewish community in France is the largest Jewish community in Europe.  Any single attack on Jews or their faith must be considered an attack on France. An act of vandalism against a Jewish cemetery or synagogue is equivalent to the “Crystal Night” because it pressages the same horrors that followed that signal event.

So, he said all this in 2011 in the hallowed halls of CRIF and it did not have much of an echo in France at the time. It is important, however, to look back on it and see that while France was slumbering, Sarkozy passed the Fabius-Gayssot law that gagged the “other French” under severe penalties (fines and prison) to prevent them from questioning any of the “first comers’” impositions and fiats. It is also instructive to remember that after him, Manuel Valls stated loudly and clearly that if only 100,000 of Jews (of France’s 600,000) left, France would no longer be France and the republic would fail.

This serves to explain the slogan chanted on the Day of Ire by the demonstrators opposing to the highjacking of French politics, economy, culture and education by the Jewish power: “Juif, la France n’est pas a toi!”(Jew, France is not yours!)

But if France does not belong to the Jews, to whom does it belong? Much of what the “late-comers” contributed to French culture may have to be scrapped or at least severely edited by the Jewish guardians for its anti-semitism. Indeed, from Voltaire, who called the Jews “abominable” in his Dictionary of Philosophy and on to his “inheritors” (notably Balzac, also du Maurier, George Sand), many if not most French writers, we are told, are profoundly anti-semitic.How about that old anti-semite, Moliere? Isn’t Tartuffe, his best known character, a stereotypical Jew:

Tartuffe is called “The Impostor” or “The Hypocrite.” He is a superb scoundrel who can don any pose and become a master of it. As a religious ascetic, he convinces Orgon and Madame Pernelle that he is a devoutly pious and humble man; his obvious hypocrisy, however, is apparent to the reader and to the audience.

Tartuffe’s superiority lies in the fact that he can accurately analyze the weaknesses of his victims and then exploit these flaws for his own advantage. He is no simple or ignorant charlatan; instead, he is an alert and adept hypocrite who uses every means to bring about his success.

His eventual downfall is caused by his lust. Instead of making Tartuffe into an inhuman monster, Molière shows how lust causes the clever hypocrite to lower his mask and reveal his hypocrisy.

“We were here first,” and “You are all hardened anti-semites” so far trumps the pretensions of the French of being the real French (de souche). But the revolt is still young.

Israel loses ‘Iran cover-up’ case against Argentina President

Rehmat

31[1]Yesterday, Daniel Rafecas, a Buenos Aires Federal Court judge dismissed Organized Jewry’s allegations against country’s president Cristina Fernadez de Kirchner claiming she covered-up Iran-Hizbullah involvement in the 1994 bombing of AMIA building.

The judge dismissed the case, citing a lack of evidence. Both de Kirchner and her Jewish foreign minister Hector Timerman were the ‘criminals’ in the case. Both have denied their involvement in shielding Iran’s government from responsibility in the attack.

Alberto Nissman (Jewish), country’s prosecutor, was appointed by late president Nestor Kirchner, an Israeli ally, to clear Israeli Mossad involvement in the 1994 bombing of AMIA which also housed Mossad office, and put the blame on Lebanese Islamic Resistance Hizbullah backed by Iran. Nissman visited the US and Israel several times during his 10-year long investigation against Iran. Failed to find any credible proof to implicate Iran, last year he accused de Kirchner for shielding Iran in order to secure an oil-import deal. Fearing Nissman’s failure to prove the case against de Kircher, CIA-Mossad agent killed him in ‘suicide look-like before the day he was scheduled to appear in a court to prove his accusations against country’s president.

Last year, before even appearing in an Argentina court, Nissman appeared in Israeli Supreme Court with the proof that the former Iranian president Ayatullah Ali Rafsanjani (mentor of the current ‘moderate’ president Hassan Rouhani) and eight of his ministers masterminded, financed and organized the AMIA attack through Hizbullah.

Argentina Congress has passed de Kirchner proposed bill to scrap country’s intelligence agency by 131:71 votes. The agency was infiltrated by CIA and Mossad agents during the presidency of her husband Nestor Kirchner and Carlos Menem. The new agency would be responsible to the parliament.

On February 26, the Business Insider reported that two big Jewish banks at the Wall Street JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank sent a letter warning potential investors not to invest in the proposed Argentina bond offering. The offering was suspended as result of Jewish Lobby’s campaign, reported the Wall Street Journal on February 26, 2015.

Argentina has a very sad history of being friendly toward the Zionist entity and accommodating to its tiny (0.5% of Argentina population) extremely powerful Jewish community. Pope Francis as Archbishop of Buenos Aires was a close friend of local Jewish community. Israeli Mossad misused this friendship when it abducted Adolf Eichmann (aka Ricardo Klement), a German-born Argentine citizen.

Eichmann, a former high-ranking Nazi official – fluent in Yiddish and Hebrew languages – was intensely involved in negotiations during WW II between Germany’s SS (SuchutzStafflen) and key Zionist organizations – working together on one very specific common goal: getting as many Jews out of Europe as possible. Eichmann accompanied by his wife had visited British mandate Palestine on the invitation of the World Zionist Organization.

Syrian Army Controls Rural Daraa after Seizing Hamreet, Kherbet Sultana

Local Editor

Syrian Arab ArmySyrian army units on Saturday advanced from several axes in the strategic areas of Daraa, Quneitra and Damascus countryside triangle, establishing full control over Tal Qrein and a number of towns after eliminating the last terrorists’ gatherings in the area, state-run SANA news agency reported.

A military source told SANA that army units established control over the areas of al-Habaria, Kherbet Sultana, Hamreet and Tal Qurein in the northwestern countryside of Daraa, killing a number of terrorists from Jabhat al-Nusra and destroying their weaponry.

The army units remarkably advanced through special operations, regaining stability and security during the past month to the towns of Deir- al-Adas, al-Danaji and Deir-Maker and establishing control on Tal-Mseih, Tal- Mori, Tal-al-Arous and Tal- al-Sarjeh.

Many terrorists from al-Nusra Front takfiri group were killed during the operations including the so-called the military Emir of the south, the Jordanian terrorist Abu Omar Mokhtar.

The terrorist organizations confirmed on their websites that they have received heavy losses in the area and, and the killing of terrorists Hassan Qassem al-Mafalani, Nawaf Mousa al-Nazzal, Abdul-Rahman Mossab al-Farwan, yahya al-Sobh and Khaled Fallaha.

Syria was hit by a violent unrest since mid-March 2011, where the western media reports accuse countries, mainly the USA, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar of orchestrating the civil conflict in the country and providing terrorist groups with money, weapons and trained mercenaries.

The Stage Is Set For The Syrian Invasion

Tyler Durden's picture

One week ago, when reporting on the latest bizarre plan presented by the Pentagon, namely providing Syrian rebels (but only the moderate ones, not the jihadists like al Nusra, or, well, ISIS) with B-1B Bomber air support in their attacks on ISIS, when we wrote that this “means in the coming weeks and months look forward to a surge in false flag “attacks” blamed on the Assad regime, aiming to give Obama validation to expand the “War against ISIS” to include Syria’s regime as well.”

We didn’t have long to wait: in an entirely unsourced Time article written today by Aryn Baker, the Middle East Bureau Chief, the stage for the second attempt at invading Assad regime is finally set.

The article, titled “Why Bashar Assad Won’t Fight ISIS” is essentially an essay that, as the title suggests “proves” that the Syrian leader is, in fact, quite close with ISIS and derives strategis benefits from his relationship, which is why he won’t attack them, and thus by implication is just as bad as ISIS and worthy of America’s wrath.

How does Baker build up her propaganda? First, she cits a “Sunni businessman who is close to the regime but wants to remain anonymous for fear of repercussions from both ISIS supporters and the regime” and who “trades goods all over the country so his drivers have regular interactions with ISIS supporters and members in Raqqa, the ISIS stronghold in Syria, and in ISIS-controlled areas like Dier-ezzor.” According to this Syrian version of Amazon:

The regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad has long had a pragmatic approach to the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria. Even from the early days the regime purchased fuel from ISIS-controlled oil facilities, and it has maintained that relationship throughout the conflict. “Honestly speaking, the regime has always had dealings with ISIS, out of necessity.”

“Honestly speaking” of course being used quite loosely, considering that it is by now no secret that ISIS, in the words of General Wesley Clark, “got started through funding from our friends and allies“, most notably Qatar and Saudi Arabia, and according to some even the CIA is involved so, no: honestly speaking, if anything, the Assad regime has been doing its best to stay away from ISIS, which at least on paper, was created as a result of extremist Al Nusra factions, who were fighting Assad in 2013, and were funded and weaponized by the US.

Of course, none of that is mentioned. What is, however, duly emphasized is the goalseeked conclusion that Assad and the Islamic State are like two peas in a pod:

Assad does not see ISIS as his primary problem, the businessman says. “The regime fears the Free Syrian Army and the Nusra Front, not ISIS. They [the FSA and Nusra] state their goal is to remove the President. But ISIS doesn’t say that. They have never directly threatened Damascus.” As the businessman notes, the strikes on ISIS targets are minimal. “If the regime were serious about getting rid of ISIS, they would have bombed Raqqa by now. Instead they bomb other cities, where the FSA is strong.” That said, the businessman does not believe that the regime has a formal relationship with ISIS, just a pragmatic one. “The more powerful ISIS grows, the more they are useful for the regime. They make America nervous, and the Americans in turn see the regime as a kind of bulwark against ISIS.”

Actually, the “Americans” see ISIS as the perfect false flag placeholder to build up yet another case about invading Damascus, after the humiliation of the bumbled attempt to use a doctored YouTube clip showing paid actors following what the CIA guaranteed was an Assad “chemical weapon” attack as a pretext to launch an invasion on Syria in the first attempt to topple Assad. It took an escalation that involved numerous Russian ships side by side with US cruisers in the Mediterranean before John Kerry realized that building Qatar’s nat gas pipeline to Europe is not worth rising World War III over, and promptly backed off.

This time, ISIS is the bait.

Back to the Time article, where next we get the next “source” of information:

A senior Western diplomat who specializes in the Syrian civil war agrees that ISIS is seen as an asset by Assad. “They will do whatever it takes to devalue the opposition, even if it means strengthening ISIS. They know that if it comes to choosing between the black flag [of ISIS] and Damascus, the international community will choose Damascus.” And the strategy has worked extremely well. “The way it’s going now, it’s a matter of months, not even a year,that the moderate opposition is so weakened that it won’t be a factor anymore. So in just a few months from now the regime will be able to achieve its strategic goal of forcing the world to choose between Damascus and the black flags.”

Actually, according to that logic, the “international community” will choose both Damascus and the “black flags”, in fact the community will be delighted to have the “flags” as a cover in an invasion, both air, sea and ground, toppling Assad and replacing him with yet another US-puppet regime (whose fate, following such sterling examples as Egypt, Libya and Iraq will be just spectacular), one which will be glad to accept Qatar and Syria hush money, while thousands of kilometers of pipes are laid under the territory in attempt to dethrone Gazprom as the provider of first and last resort to Europe… which as a reminder is what it is all about.

The anonymous “western diplomat” continues:

… by ignoring the conflict between the Syrian opposition and the Assad regime to focus purely on ISIS may solve problems in the short term, says the diplomat, “but there will be more problems to come. These are the ingredients for a further escalation of the conflict — alienating large parts of the Sunni population, so that they have no choice but to join ISIS. Not for ideological reasons, but because they will do whatever it takes to overthrow the regime in Damascus.” Not only that, it will widen the geographical boundaries of the conflict by making this a fight of all Sunnis. “It’s a clear recipe for further escalation well beyond the geographical boundaries of the current conflict.”

Which is why in order to prevent further escalation in the future, the US will be delighted to provide much more escalation right now.

And here is the piece de resistance of the article that may as well have been written by a 6th grader who is about to flunk propaganda class:

Damascus believes that once it has neutralized most of the opposition, it can then defeat ISIS with ease. “ISIS alone, the regime can deal with them. What Assad wants is international recognition of his legitimacy as Syria’s President,” says the businessman. “When the war is over, he can easily handle ISIS with the help of Hizballah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.”

So let’s get this straight:

  1. A “terrorist” group which was created and funded by US allies in the middle east (there are many) is fighting a war on behalf of a regime that the US and its allies in the middle east are desperately trying to topple; a “terrorist” group which until recently did not exist and which, inexplicably according to the author, Assad refuses to fight because…. unlike the US he has not seen the dreadful beheading movies which lead to so much daily water cooler talk across the US?
  2. Ths US now believes that “ISIS is seen as an asset by Assad” and that the moderate (this distinction is key: their flag has a pink skull and crossbones as opposed to the red one used by the “non-moderate”) opposition which spawned ISIS in the power vacuum following the incomplete first US invasion of Syria in the symmer of 2013, is about to be destroyed by the same ISIS.
  3. Assad is confident he can “defeat ISIS with ease” once he has destroyed his so-called moderate enemies; the same ISIS which the US has been “fighting” now for half a year, and achieved absolutely nothing.
  4. We know all those due to an essay of amateur propaganda caliber, which derives its entire narrative and conclusions based on two anonymous sources.

At this point we probably speak for everyone when we say: just invade Syria already, and let’s proceed to the inevitable, and quite understandable, Russian retaliation, because frankly this endless propaganda and false-flaggery is now as obvious and pathetic as the Greek default which is also about 5 years overdue.

Jihadi John: Another Known Terrorist Travels To Syria

Anthony Freda Art

 

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

In what has become an all-too familiar story to those with an attention span that goes back farther than one week, it has once again been revealed that a famed terrorist was known to and in close contact with Western intelligence agencies before and, presumably, during his notorious acts.

27-year-old Mohammed Emwazi has been identified as “Jihadi John,” the masked terrorist who appeared in the numerous staged beheading propaganda films depicting the killing of Western “aid workers,” “journalists,” and others.

It was already largely accepted that the terrorist star of the videos was from Britain. However, the exact identity of “Jihadi John” was not released to the public until Wednesday.

Already, the story is being presented as a failure of intelligence services and a tragic oversight that could only have been remedied with even greater police state powers being granted to the UK government.

With such ridiculous statements coming from “experts,” and “officials” suggesting that the UK intelligence agencies were simply too overwhelmed and overburdened to catch the suspicious behavior of Emwazi, the only logical conclusion that can be arrived at is that the UK intelligence apparatus need more powers to surveil, more money with which to do so, and, presumably, more authority to detect and prevent “pre-crime.”

With lines like “we simply can’t monitor all of these people sufficiently” and “we can’t monitor everyone” as the official line from the UK government and mainstream British media, the official narrative is inherently contradictory, especially considering the fact that the UK government and GCHQ is in fact capable of monitoring everyone, which they do in an almost identical fashion to the American NSA.

Indeed, the statement by the 17-year-old daughter of David Haines, the Scottish “aid worker” allegedly killed by Jihadi John in the propaganda video, is being used to drive  this point home in the minds of the general public. Haines’ daughter says that she doesn’t really blame UK intelligence or law enforcement agencies and that “If they’d known his name earlier they could’ve stopped him going – but they can’t and once he’s captured I think there will be a lot of happy faces.”

But they did know his name earlier. Mohammed Emwazi was well-known to UK intelligence agencies and police.

In fact, there is a reasonable amount of evidence – the track record of the UK and US government in terms of false flag terror attacks involving the use of Muslim patsies being one portion of that evidence – that not only was Jihadi John known to agencies and police before his travels to Syria but that he was working with these very same intelligence agencies in doing so.

The story goes that, upon graduating from the University in 2009, Emwazi and a few friends flew to Tanzania on a safari trip. Upon landing in Dar es Salaam, Emwazi was arrested and sent back to Britain.

On the way back, he stopped over in Amsterdam where he claims that he was accused by MI5 of trying to go to Somalia, apparently suggesting that he was going to join the group Al Shabaab while there. Emwazi also claims that he was subsequently harassed so much by security agencies that he was forced to complain to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, a report of which there is a record.

He stated that MI5 knew “about me; where I lived, what I did, and the people I hanged around with.” He also claimed that MI5 attempted to “turn” him, meaning that the agency wanted to recruit him to work for them.

In 2009, Emwazi apparently moved back to Kuwait and got a job at a computer firm there. When he returned to Britain in June, 2010, he was detained and not allowed to return to Kuwait. Somehow, despite having been placed on a terrorism watch list and being banned from leaving the UK, Emwazi allegedly managed to travel to Syria where he committed the alleged terror attacks of which he now stands accused.

Emwazi’s travel represents yet another example of the curious ability of terrorists who are known to intelligence agencies to travel in and out of the country at will despite having been placed on a terrorism watch list.

The Daily Mail reports that “As it was claimed Emwazi had spoken to police and security services three times in a year, it emerged that senior members of the security services could be called to give evidence to the Intelligence and Security Committee about contact between him and MI5.”

The Daily Mail continues by writing that

Asim Qureshi, research director at the rights group Cage told the Washington Post: ‘Mohammed was quite incensed by his treatment, that he had been very unfairly treated’.
Emwazi claimed in emails that he was repeatedly approached by the security services over the course of the following year but he said he refused to co-operate and denied he had any links to terrorism.

[…]

In an email to Mr Qureshi he said: ‘I feel like a prisoner, only not in a cage, in London. A person imprisoned & controlled by security service men, stopping me from living my new life in my birthplace & country, Kuwait’.

Another friend said: ‘He was upset and wanted to start a life elsewhere. He at some stage reached the point where he was really just trying to find another way to get out.’
Another friend said that Emwazi later tried to travel to Saudi Arabia to teach English in 2012 but again stopped from leaving.

He was ‘desperate’ to leave Britain and ‘was ready to exhaust every single kind of avenue within the machinery of the state to bring a change for his personal situation’, Mr Qureshi said.

Mr Qureshi said he last heard from him that year and said the Jihadi John suspect believed ‘actions were taken to criminalize him and he had no way to do something against these actions’.

Soon afterwards he vanished and is believed to have travelled to Syria, where he may now be ISIS’ figurehead.

In other words, given the track record of Western intelligence agencies when it comes to acts of terror at home or abroad, one would be justified in wondering whether or not this “harassment” of which Emwazi complained was actually an attempt to recruit him to act as a face for terror, an actual terror fighter, or patsy in their war against the Syrian people and the secular government of Assad.

It is not fully known whether Emwazi had fundamentalist sympathies before his encounter with UK intelligence services or whether his encounter with UK intelligence services was the precursor to the fundamentalism or, at least, the perception of such fundamentalism. Considering the shaky narrative provided by the mainstream – that Emwazi was arrested, harassed, denied having anything to do with terrorism, was arrested again, harassed so much that he desperately wanted to leave Britain, placed on a terrorism watch list, and then suddenly appeared in Syria as “Jihadi John,” there is ample reason to wonder whether or not Emwazi was coerced and/or forced into his role.

That is, of course, assuming that “Jihadi John” is actually Emwazi at all, a claim that, in actuality, has very little in the way of evidence to back it up.

Still, it should be remembered that the connection between British intelligence and al-Qaeda is by no means a new one. For instance, in 1996, British intelligence was involved in the direction of al-Qaeda for the purposes of an attempted assassination of Muammar Ghaddaffi. Ever since, the London connection to Islamic terrorism, terrorist recruitment, and the training of terrorists has been well-known in honest and informed researching circles.

Sayed Qutb Muslim Brotherhood leader in USA with CIA officer Steve Radisson in Washington 1948

Indeed, the very concept of Islamic Fundamentalism as a fighting force was largely a British idea which took the form of the establishment of the Muslim Brotherhood to combat Arab nationalism early in the 20th century.

Whether or not Jihadi John was legitimately a radical fundamentalist (through the network of Mosques acting as British intelligence fronts[1]) or whether he was merely blackmailed and bullied into doing the bidding of UK intelligence in Syria, the fact remains that his actions were entirely coordinated by NATO intelligence.

One need only to consider the many “coincidences” that benefited NATO forces as a result of the propaganda videos that “Jihadi John” had a cameo role in.

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.

Either ISIS and Jihadi John are the absolute dumbest public relations operatives in world history, or the actions of ISIS and Jihadi John are directly controlled by NATO for propaganda, geopolitical, and military purposes since it is only NATO who has benefited from the videos and the alleged beheadings.

The timing of ISIS and Jihadi John’s actions – always in line with the goals of the NATO faction of the world oligarchy – is clearly the result of the latter.

Hezbollah Announces Plan to Defeat Islamic State Group

Published 22 February 2015

After announcing it was active in Iraq, Hezbollah is seeking to stop arms flowing to Islamic State group.

Hezbollah, the political party and resistance movement that has been fighting Israeli occupation of Lebanon for decades, has declared a new plan for defeating Islamic State group in Iraq.

On Friday the group announced a special initiative aimed at preventing the arming of the Islamic State group in Iraq.

It follows remarks earlier last week from the head of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah,  saying the Lebanese resistance movement has been fighting Islamic State in Iraq.

“We may not have spoken about Iraq before, but we have a limited presence because of the sensitive phase that Iraq is going through,” Nasrallah said.

The latest initiative is part of a policy seeking to avoid more civilians becoming  victims of the conflict, stated a communique from the movement.

“In order to target helicopters and planes that send weapons and food to the armed group from abroad, we will establish anti-helicopter missiles on all the fighting fronts against Daesh (the name for Islamic State group in Arab),” details the statement.

Sophisticated anti-aerial missiles will be able to take down any flying system, according to Hezbollah, adding that its brigades are equipped with “new and sophisticated weapons and munitions, which will allow the achievement of this goal in an effective way.”

Instead of wailing about so called “anti-Semitism” Where is the Jewish outrage at settler Nazism in West Bank?

Where is the Jewish outrage at settler Nazism in West Bank?

 

Terrorist attacks by Jewish extremists targeting mosques and churches in Occupied Palestine are assuming a shocking frequency.

Unfortunately, the Israeli government of Binyamin Netanyahu, which is often dubbed a government of settlers, for settlers and by settlers, has done very little to stem the tide of settler terror. On the contrary, government inaction and presumed acquiescence seem to have enabled this phenomenon to linger on and on.

On Thursday, Israeli police said a fire damaged a Greek Orthodox seminary in Jerusalem.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said “anti-Christian” slogans were scribbled in Hebrew on the seminary’s walls. Some of the slogans left on the wall of the Church read: Jesus is son of a b….”

The fire, apparently started by Jewish settlers, damaged the building’s bathrooms but that no one was injured.

The incident follows an attack on a West Bank mosque Wednesday. The latest attacks against mosques and churches coincide with the 21st anniversary of the Ibrahimi Mosque massacre. On 25, February, 1994 a Jewish terrorist shot and killed 29 Muslim worshipers at the Ibrahimi Mosque in downtown Hebron. Many other Palestinians were murdered and injured in subsequent clashes with Israeli security forces in al-Khalil.

Jewish terror is reality

The attacks on Islamic and Christian holy places are by no means isolated acts carried out by a marginal group of Jewish fanatics. On the contrary, these attacks have come to constitute a real phenomenon for two reasons:

First, they occurred numerous times in both Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories and seem to be supported by many Orthodox rabbis, especially within the settler community.

And, second, very little progress if any has been made in apprehending the perpetrators, let alone bringing them to justice.

This stunning security failure has prompted many observers to suggest that the Israeli security apparatus is effectively colluding with the terrorists. Moreover, it is widely thought that the Israeli government itself is adopting an extremely lenient approach to the settler terrorists, which ultimately encourages them to escalate their criminal terrorist acts against Christian and Muslim targets.

A part from conceived government acquiescence to organized Jewish terror, there are credible signs showing that certain influential segments within the Rabbinic community in Israel and abroad are more than happy to bless these terrorist acts.

In fact, rabbis, some of whom are on the Israeli government’s pay roll, have gone public with their support and backing of tense crimes.

Hatred, and hatred and hatred

The settler terror is carried out as an expression of the Talmudic ideology that views all non-Jews in the Holy Land as impurities that must be eliminated. Some dominant theological streams within Orthodox Judaism don’t ascribe mere humanity to non-Jews.

This shocking racism can and does often assume decidedly criminal proportions. For example, some rabbinic authorities teach that the life of a Christian or Muslim doesn’t have any sanctity in itself.

A few years ago, the former religious mentor of Shas, the largest Haredi political party in Israel, was quoted as saying that the Almighty created non-Jews so that they would serve Jews.

One North American rabbi, affiliated with the Chabad sect, was quoted as saying that it was perfectly permissible for a Jew to murder a non-Jew in order to extricate his organ if the Jew needed one.

It is true that not every rabbi or Jewish religious leader subscribes to this Satanic nefarious ideology.

However, it is also true that advocates of these Nazi-like ideas enjoy acceptance and respect within the rabbinic community and Talmudic circles.

This is probably the reason why we don’t see strong reactions to Jewish terrorist attacks in the West Bank by rabbis from around the world.

So, far there have been as many as 260 instances of mosques and churches being vandalized and torched by fanatical Jewish settlers. But we are yet to hear any meaningful condemnation of these criminal acts by Rabbinic circles in the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe.

I am afraid that the failure to call the spade a spade when the spade happens to be in the hands of Jews is a willful and deliberate act that is meant to encourage anti-Jewish attacks, especially by Muslims.

Wishing to see a spiral of attacks on Jews and Jewish targets, especially in Europe and North America, seems to be a dearest desire harbored by the likes of Zionist thugs like Netanyahu, who wants Jews to emigrate to Palestine by hook or by crook.

I am not accusing North American and European rabbis of knowingly colluding with Netanyahu to encourage anti-Semitism and therefore prompt Jews to emigrate to Israel.

But I do accuse many rabbis of indulging in moral duplicity especially when they leave no stone unturned when a Jewish grave headstone is turned whereas they resort to deafening silence when their coreligionists in Israel burn churches and mosques.

What happened to the ancient Talmudic maxim of not doing unto others what one wouldn’t want others to do unto him?

US special services together with their “assistants” from Canada and Great Britain tried again to stage a coup in Venezuela

Obama Incites Bloodshed in Venezuela

The US special services together with their “assistants” from Canada and Great Britain tried again to stage a coup in Venezuela.

In the middle of February, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said the national security services frustrated the plans of US embassy and put an end to its hostile actions. As a result, a number of people were arrested, including Venezuelan air force officers and activists of radical opposition. The subversive activities were guided by Western diplomatic missions. The names of those behind the plot are known but they cannot be brought to justice being protected by diplomatic immunity. The President said the plotters wanted to assassinate him. The United States embassy guaranteed that the perpetrators would be granted asylum in America.

The Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (El Servicio Bolivariano de Inteligencia Nacional – SEBIN) had been warned about the conspiracy preparations. A Super Tucano aircraft (a light, highly agile Brazilian aircraft designed principally for pilot training and counterinsurgency operations) used before for special operations by Academi (former Blackwater), an American private military company, was handed over to plotters in the United States. The plane had the insignia of Venezuelan air force. It was armed and prepared to make a flight from Columbia to the island of Curacao where a US forward operating location is stationed. The CIA-recruited pilots, who betrayed the Bolivarian regime and their home country, learned well which targets they had to strike: the presidential palace, the buildings of ministries of Defense and General Staff and TV company TeleSUR. Security agencies found caches of arms, the equipment to provide guidance to the target and a video footage showing air force officers and opposition leaders involved in the plot addressing people. The video footage was given in Miami to journalist Patricia Poleo, a fierce opponent of the current Venezuelan government. She was to make it go on air but the plan was thwarted. The video material got into the hands of SEBIN operatives.

The video showed the plotters with balaclavas on their heads announcing the beginning of insurgency in the armed forces and the establishment of interim government. It was prepared to be made public by El Nacional newspaper at the time of coup. Three key figures of the Venezuelan opposition – Leopoldo López, the mayor of Caracas, Antonio Ledezma, the leader of Voluntad Popular (People’s Will) and former member of parliament Maria Corina Machado signed and distributed a joint communique on February 11, just one day before the planned coup plot that President Nicolas Maduro denounced was to take place. All these people were known to be close to the United States. Entitled “The Call for a National Transition Agreement,” the statement calls for unification of Venezuelans behind a national plan aimed at supplanting the current socialist administration of President Nicolas Maduro. It says the country was going through hardships unparalleled in its history. It is the fault of regime that has been trying for sixteen years to impose a failed system. In the text the current government is described as a “failed” “corrupt” and “inefficient” regime, made up of an “elite of no more 100 people” who have pilfered public funds “which could have been used for the benefit of all”. It also states that Venezuela is on the brink of a “humanitarian crisis” whilst the Maduro government is “delegitimised” and in its “terminal phase”. It says nothing about the hard struggle against the United States trying to overthrow the regime fallen out of its favor. In the effort to achieve the goal, the US uses all any methods without hesitation, including economic sabotage, subversive activities against oil and energy sectors, never ending information war, organizing street protests in big cities and the use of local criminals and Columbian paramilitaries to destabilize the situation in the country. The list also includes artificially created shortages of food and basic consumer goods. The operations against Salvador Allende in Chile come to mind. The US uses the same dirty methods in Venezuela. Waiting in line has become a common occurrence in Venezuelan cities since 2013. Different prices in Columbian and Venezuelan shops are one of the reasons. Almost everything is smuggled to Columbia – from super cheap gas to corn meal and sugar. To some extent the military called by President Maduro to fight the cross border smuggling helped to control the situation.

According to the plotters’ plans, Maria Corina Machado was to head the new government. She has been patronized by former US President George Bush Jr. The Machado’s three minute meeting in the White House with the President of the United States in March 2005 attracted unusually high attention of pro-US media. Maria was painted as the most promising politician able to defeat President Hugo Chavez and become a Venezuelan President absolutely loyal to the United States. The revelations about the Machado’s ties with US intelligence services spoiled the plans. She was the founder, former vice president, and former president of the Venezuelan volunteer civil organization Sumate that used US-provided funds. When it was revealed that Machado got large sums of money from special services, she had to keep away from spotlight. Today the United States needs her again. She is ready to go to any length in an effort to overthrow Nicolas Maduro. Washington wants her to lead the country.

The planning has been done. A group of pro-US Latin American presidents is carrying out the mission. Former Mexican President Felipe Calderón, former Chilean President Sebastian Piñera and former Colombia President Andres Pastrana came to the country under the pretext of expressing their support for Leopoldo López. The real purpose was to see the real situation in the country. Nicolas Maduro never stood in their way. He only said that these people came to support ultra-right wing radicals who do not recognize the government and call for a bloody coup. Maduro warned that the visitors would have their hands soaked in blood if they hobnob with this kind of people.

Of those who signed the statement Machado is the only one who is still at large. A year ago Leopoldo López was put behind bars for inciting street protests resulting in dozens of victims. Antonio Ledezma was detained a few days ago charged with involvement in coup attempt. The conditions of detainment are not so tough; he can continue the struggle against the Bolivarian regime. Recently he sent a letter to media outlets calling for continuing protests and peaceful struggle against Nicolas Maduro to make the current President resign. In the letter he stuck rigidly to the constitution. It says “We must keep up the struggle in the street, in a civil manner with the constitution in our hands and with the truth in front of us” Ledezma wrote. “They [the government] have the weapons but we have the ideas to unite the Venezuelan people. Violence is a pointless vacuum that leads nowhere.” He wants no mercy and calls for solidarity to protect democratic values in Venezuela. He stands out among Venezuelan politicians for his aggressive style and vindictiveness. It is suggested that if the plotters won, he would have headed the Interior Ministry to cleanse the national politics from Bolivarians, Chavistas and other elements hostile to the United States.

After the leading plotters were arrested and their ties with special services and embassies of the United States, Canada and Great Britain were revealed, Nicolas Maduro could say with certainty that another coup attempt orchestrated by Washington was effectively foiled. The tension in the relationship with the United States remains. In December 2014, President Obama endorsed sanctions against top officials of Venezuela accused by Washington of human rights violations. Maduro warned Americans that arbitrary sanctions and other attempts to exert pressure would deteriorate the bilateral relationship even further. He said the United States tried to stage coups in Venezuela a number of times. The US interference into the internal affairs of other countries has become a constant factor to negatively affect the situation in the world.

Jen Psaki, the spokesperson for the United States Department of State, as usually rejected all the accusations of US involvement into the conspiracy to organize a coup in Venezuela. “Well, I think we’ve seen continued accusations, no question, that are false and baseless. And our view continues to be that political transitions must be democratic, constitutional, peaceful, and legal. We do not support a political transition in Venezuela by non-constitutional means. We’re not promoting unrest in Venezuela, nor are we attempting to undermine Venezuela’s economy or its government. And this is a continued effort – ongoing, because I do feel like we talk about these incidents once a week at least – about – of the Venezuelan Government to try to distract attention from the country’s economic and political problems and focus and try to distract and make these false accusations.”

Meanwhile, the investigation continues. Nicolas Maduro says Antonio Ledezma tried to abuse his position to organize a violent coup and destabilize the country. New arrests are to follow. The government of Venezuela is adamant in its desire to prevent the events unfolding according to a scenario worked out by the United States Central Intelligence Agency.

“Operation Merlin” the USA’s attempt to plant false evidence on Iran

Planting False Evidence on Iran

Prior to the U.S. intelligence community’s 2007 assessment that Iran was not working on a nuclear weapons program, there was a scramble among U.S. and Israeli officials to show that it was. The CIA’s Operation Merlin also revealed that U.S. officials were not above planting false evidence.

A month after former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling was convicted on nine felony counts with circumstantial metadata, the zealous prosecution is now having potentially major consequences — casting doubt on the credibility of claims by the U.S. government that Iran has work on a nuclear weapons program.

With negotiations between Iran and the United States at a pivotal stage, fallout from the trial’s revelations about the CIA’s Operation Merlin is likely to cause the International Atomic Energy Agency to re-examine U.S. assertions that Iran has pursued nuclear weapons.

In its zeal to prosecute Sterling for allegedly leaking classified information about Operation Merlin — which provided flawed nuclear weapon design information to Iran in 2000 — the U.S. government has damaged its own standing with the IAEA. The trial made public a treasure trove of information about the Merlin operation.

Last week Bloomberg News reported from Vienna, where IAEA is headquartered, that the agency “will probably review intelligence they received about Iran as a result of the revelations, said the two diplomats who are familiar with the IAEA’s Iran file and asked not to be named because the details are confidential.”

The Bloomberg dispatch, which matter-of-factly referred to Merlin as a “sting” operation, quoted a former British envoy to the IAEA, Peter Jenkins, saying: “This story suggests a possibility that hostile intelligence agencies could decide to plant a ‘smoking gun’ in Iran for the IAEA to find. That looks like a big problem.”

After sitting through the seven-day Sterling trial, I don’t recall that the government or any of its witnesses — including 23 from the CIA as well as former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice — ever referred to Operation Merlin as a “sting.” Instead, it was consistently portrayed as an effort to send Iran down the wrong technical path. In fact, over the years, Operation Merlin may have been both.

Near the end of the Clinton administration, CIA documents released at the trial show, Merlin was a botched effort to screw up Iran’s nuclear program. (There is no evidence that Iran’s government took the bait.) But documents also show that Merlin continued for years, with the CIA considering plans to widen the operation beyond Iran.

As a matter of fact, one CIA document was not redacted sufficiently to hide evident interest in also trying a similar tactic against Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq. History certainly tells us that the Bush-Cheney administration would be capable of seeking to cite fabricated evidence in a push to justify military action against a targeted country.

Investigative journalist Marcy Wheeler, my colleague at ExposeFacts, has written an extensive analysis of the latest developments. The article on her EmptyWheel blog raises key questions beginning with the headline “What Was the CIA Really Doing with Merlin by 2003?”

An emerging big irony of United States of America v. Jeffrey Alexander Sterling is that the government has harmed itself in the process of gunning for the defendant. While the prosecution used innuendos and weak circumstantial evidence to obtain guilty verdicts on multiple felonies, the trial produced no actual evidence that Sterling leaked classified information. But the trial did provide abundant evidence that the U.S. government’s nuclear-related claims about Iran should not be trusted.

In the courtroom, one CIA witness after another described Operation Merlin as a vitally important program requiring strict secrecy. Yet the government revealed a great deal of information about Operation Merlin during the trial — including CIA documents that showed the U.S. government to be committed to deception about the Iranian nuclear program.

If, as a result, the International Atomic Energy Agency concludes that U.S. assertions about an alleged Iranian nuclear weapons program lack credibility, top officials in Washington will have themselves to blame.

China sets out red lines for the USA over their aggression against Russia

China Warns US, Sides with Russia over Ukraine Conflict

It’s official: China is now openly warning the United States against meddling further in Ukraine

This article originally appeared at Zero Hedge


When it comes to the Ukraine proxy war, which started in earnest just about one year ago with the violent coup that overthrew then president Yanukovich and replaced him with a local pro-US oligarch, there has been no ambiguity who the key actors were: on the left, we had the west, personified by the US, the European Union, and NATO in general; while on the right we had Russia. In fact, if there was any confusion, it was about the role of that other “elephant in the room” – China.

To be sure, a question few asked throughout the Ukraine civil war is just whose side is China leaning toward. After all the precarious balance of power between NATO and Russia had resulted in a stalemate in which neither side has an obvious advantage (even as the Ukraine economy died, and its currency hyperinflated, waiting for a clear winner), and the explicit or implicit support of China to either camp would make all the difference in the world, not to mention the world’s most formidable axis.

Today we finally got the answer, and the winner is… this guy:

Xinhua reported that late on Thursday Qu Xing, China’s ambassador to Belgium, was quoted as blaming competition between Russia and the West for the Ukraine crisis, urging Western powers to “abandon the zero-sum mentality” with Russia.

Cited by Reuters, Xing said that Western powers should take into consideration Russia’s legitimate security concerns over Ukraine.

Reuters’ assessment of Xing speech: “an unusually frank and open display of support for Moscow’s position in the crisis.”

Reuters’ assessment of Xing speech: “an unusually frank and open display of support for Moscow’s position in the crisis.”

At least it is not a warning to the US to back off or else. Yet.

Speaking in very clear and explicit language, something diplomats are not used to doing, the Chinese ambassador said the “nature and root cause” of the crisis was the “game” between Russia and Western powers, including the United States and the European Union.

He said external intervention by different powers accelerated the crisis and warned that Moscow would feel it was being treated unfairly if the West did not change its approach.

“The West should abandon the zero-sum mentality, and take the real security concerns of Russia into consideration,” Qu was quoted as saying.

His comments were an unusually public show of understanding from China for the Russian position. China and Russia see eye-to-eye on many international diplomatic issues but Beijing has generally not been so willing to back Russia over Ukraine.

As noted above, China has long been very cautious not to be drawn into the struggle between Russia and the West over Ukraine’s future, not wanting to alienate a key ally. And yet, something changed overnight, with this very clear language, warning some could say, that China will no longer tolerate Pax Americana, and even the mere assumption of a unipolar western world, let alone the reality.

Qu’s comments take place just as talks between the United States and its European allies over harsher sanctions against Moscow.

On Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused Western powers of trying to dominate and impose their ideology on the rest of world. The United States and European delegations slammed Moscow for supporting rebels in eastern Ukraine.

Qu said Washington’s involvement in Ukraine could “become a distraction in its foreign policy”.

And then, Qu’s slap in the face of Obama: “The United States is unwilling to see its presence in any part of the world being weakened, but the fact is its resources are limited, and it will be to some extent hard work to sustain its influence in external affairs.”

Especially if and when China decides to send a few peacekeepers of its own into Ukraine. You know – just to make sure US influence in external affairs isn’t “sustained” too much.

 

With trillions of petrodollars coming home to roost the USA, in desperation, may start WW111, hoping it’s confined to Europe

Satanic USSA lurches insanely toward World War III

By Dr. Richard Sauder | Event Horizon Chronicle

You can see it coming.

Just as you know that a hard storm is coming when you see towering thunderclouds billow up on the horizon, and see the lightning flash against the dark, angry sky; so, too, can you tell that one hell of a geopolitical storm is coming.

You have but to consider the depth of the insanity in which it is being nurtured and brought to term, and you know of a certainty that it will be wicked beyond all reckoning.

You know it is going to be bad, I mean really, really bad,  when the USSA keeps trotting out its deranged Vice-President to insist, among other things, that, “Russia cannot be allowed to redraw the map of Europe,”  and that the Russians must get out of Ukraine.

To begin with, the USSA itself has already radically redrawn the map of Europe with its vicious, military dismantling of Yugoslavia in the 1990s. For the lengthy, bloody details please read this and also this analysis of that conflict. There is, indeed, a satanic, psychopathic, fascist butcher of the Balkans and his name is USSA ex-President Bill Clinton. He should be in chains awaiting trial on unpardonable crimes against humanity, with a non-negotiable penalty upon conviction of hanging by the neck until dead.

So who, therefore, is the USSA Vice-President to lecture anyone about redrawing the map of Europe?

As for the Russians having to get out of Ukraine — they have actually been there from its birth centuries ago! The western region of the modern country called Ukraine is part of the ancestral homeland of the Slavic peoples, Russians being one of the Slavic peoples. Ethnic Russians and Russian-speaking people have lived there for centuries. In the case of the Crimea, the peninsula has been Russian territory for more than two centuries and has a majority Russian population. The Russians have had a naval base in the Crimea that goes back to Soviet times, and even well before that, to the rule of Catherine the Great, in the late 18th century.

Is the USSA Vice-President demanding that England vacate Gibraltar, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales? Must France abandon Corsica and Brittany, Alsace and Lorraine? Does he go so far as to require that Spain pull out of Catalonia and the Basque lands?  Is he adamant that Italy let Sardinia and the South Tyrol go?

No, no, no and no. So why is there a double standard for Russia?

Moreover, why the feigned outrage over the Russian military presence in the Crimea, which has long been Russian national territory? Why, the Russians have been in the Crimea longer than the USSA military has been in Texas, New Mexico, Alaska or Hawai’i.

By the same standard, the argument could be made that the Pentagon must pull its forces out of Hawai’i, New Mexico, Alaska and Texas. By what right is there one set of rules for Russia and another for the USSA?

But it is much worse than that. The USSA government maintains that Russia must withdraw from the Crimea, and yet the USSA maintains tens of thousands of men at arms, and dozens of military bases, in Germany, Italy, Japan and South Korea. And that is just a small part of the full picture.

A 2007 report by Global Research revealed that the USSA owned 737 military bases in 63 foreign countries, with the presence of USSA military personnel in 156 countries,  and over 250,00 military personnel deployed worldwide. Given the militarily aggressive foreign policy of the USSA, those numbers could well be higher today than they were eight years ago.

So who is the USSA to dictate to the Russians that they may not have a military base in the Crimea?

Sanctions and More Sanctions

Against that global, imperial, military backdrop the USSA continues to ratchet the pressure up against Russia, by raising the possibility of yet more, punitive economic sanctions, which are themselves an act of war.

The USSA Secretary of State, John Kerry, has again in recent days threatened more sanctions against Russia over that country’s alleged “craven” actions. And make no mistake about it, there is real danger in the anti-Russia sanctions policy that the USSA power establishment is pursuing. The USSA pursued a similar policy against Imperial Japan in the run-up to World War II; until the Japanese reached the limits of their patience and lashed out militarily against the USSA naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawai’i. The difference in the instant case is that modern Russia is not Imperial Japan of 1941. Russia has the military capability to reduce vast areas of the USSA mainland to smoking heaps of glowing, radioactive gravel and dust.

But that has not deterred the USSA Vice-President, Joe Biden, from upbraiding the Europeans (e.g., French President Hollande) who have questioned the anti-Russian sanctions, as being “inappropriate and annoying.”

You Want to Know What’s Inappropriate and Annoying?

Joe Biden, that’s what, a shrill, ignorant, arrogant, bullying, Delaware blow toad.

And to be repeatedly subjected to the incessant, puffed-up harrumphing of that senescent little nothing, a fatuous, braying, little fart of a limousine liberal, an ass-licking little pisser of an ex-Senator from DuPont leading the charge to a war with Russia that could easily go nuclear?

Now that’s annoying. That’s really annoying.

To think that an absolute know-nothing like him holds high political office in the USSA demonstrates perfectly the great peril in which all humanity stands.

Have you ever seen anything more pathetic?

And none of this would matter; it could all be dismissed as the insane ranting of a foaming at the mouth, raving mad lunatic, except that Joe Biden is Vice-President of the USSA, and he is speaking for the ruling sector of the USSA power establishment

The Run-Up To War

That is not to say that there are not some sane voices out there. French President Hollande has warned of a “bleak outcome“, i.e., war, if the Ukraine peace talks fail, and to his credit did go to Moscow, along with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, to meet with Vladimir Putin to try to work out a peaceful resolution of the Ukrainian civil war. Hollande also called for “broader autonomy” for eastern Ukraine. His position is a sensible and pragmatic alternative to all-out war. It would create political space, very much along the lines of the model in which the South Tyrol is an autonomous region in northern Italy; it is part of Italy, and yet it retains its distinctive, Geman-speaking, Tyrolian culture and a large measure of self-governance. But there is no sign that Kiev is prepared to accept any similar political accomodation with the eastern Ukraine.

The Greek Foreign Minister has warned that the European Union must stop its ‘feverish’ anti-Russian steps, and think about long-term relations with Russia. The Defence Secretary of the United Kingdom has also chimed in to publicly state the obvious: sending weapons to the Ukraine would escalate the violence. It’s hard to fight a war without weapons. Cut off the weapons flow to Kiev and the ability to wage civil war vanishes.

Unfortunately, there are forces in Kiev, in NATO and the EU, and in the USSA that want war. The Pentagon has recently deployed A-10 attack jets, along with 300 support personnel to Germany, in an ominous sign of upcoming land warfare. The A-10 is used in support of close, ground combat, to destroy tanks, armored personnel carriers, artillery, etc. There is no land warfare in Germany, but there is in eastern Ukraine, just a short flight away. The obvious inference is that the A-10s have been prepositioned by the Pentagon for use in upcoming ground combat in the eastern Ukraine.

It is likely that the A-10s are but a prelude to much more to come. The Ukraine’s deputy foreign minister announced last week: “… we are preparing for full-scale war,” even as the government in Kiev is demanding that the West supply it with lethal military arms. And right on cue there is a growing movement in the USSA Congress to send weapons to the Ukraine. See how that works?

You could be forgiven for thinking that this psychotic march to war is scripted by madmen whose puppet strings are pulled by invisible demons who want to take down the world. There clearly is a script, with various actors large and small assigned their parts to play. The whole thing has been game played and lined out well in advance. All that remains is to fill in the blanks, send in the weapons and troops, stage a false flag attack or three, perhaps very spectacular, notorious false flag attacks, bark the orders for war — and there you go.

Mushroom cloud city. Or mushroom cloud cities.

That’s no joke.

The Deputy Commander of NATO in Europe, General Adrian Bradshaw, warned last week that tensions with Russian could escalate into all-out war. That is very bellicose rhetoric. Have no illusions about what all-out war with Russia could possibly entail. Please see the mushroom cloud allusions above.

Earlier this month, the Supreme Commander of NATO forces in Europe, General Philip Breedlove, stated, I don’t think we should preclude out of hand the possibility of the military option.”

The trajectory towards war is obvious and ominous.

It certainly has not escaped Russian notice. The Russian envoy to NATO has labelled NATO’s military involvement in the Ukraine as “destructive” and “unacceptable.” Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov has scathingly pointed out that the USSA has “escalated the Ukraine crisis at every stage and blamed Russia,” whereas Russian President Vladimir Putin has tersely remarked that, “No external pressure on Russia will go unchallenged.”

Earlier this month he put Russia’s mobile nuclear missile launchers on combat patrol in six different regions of the country.

Meanwhile, USSA Secretary of State, John Kerry, continues mewling that the USSA won’t close its eyes to Russian aggression in the Ukraine, and British Prime Minister Cameron has announced that the U.K. is sending military advisers to the Ukraine within a matter of weeks.

While Petro Poroshenko, President of the Ukraine, jetted off to the United Arab Emirates to sign a major weapons supply deal, thus effectively arming the Ukraine military for another round of warfare in eastern Ukraine against the ethnic Russian militias and upping the military ante against Russia, by allying the government in Kiev with the wealthy Sunni Arab monarchies in the Persian Gulf.

You do not need a crystal ball to see where all this is headed. It just gets uglier and uglier. Real evil has been unleashed and it looks like the devil will get his due.

There must be a really heavy, darkly negative, karmic harvest that is coming due, that’s all I can see.

Obama bears full responsibility for replacing Ukraine’s democratically elected government with Nazi lunatics

The Scourge of US-Installed Fascism in Europe’s Heartland

by Stephen Lendman

Obama bears full responsibility for replacing Ukraine’s democratically elected government with Nazi lunatics.
Russia’s lower house State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin said “(t)he guilt of the United States of America for (what happened) is considerable and obvious to the entire world.”
Ukraine’s crisis “poses a risk to international security, first of all to European security.”
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey was clear and unequivocal saying:
“For a quarter of century, the key principles of the United Nations had been systematically violated.”
“The US and other Western nations neglected the fundamental rules of international law, widely used double standards and didn’t hesitate to intervene directly into other nations’ sovereign affairs.”
“The impact of this policy is fully felt by the peoples of Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya and now Ukraine.”
He omitted Afghanistan, Syria, Palestine, Yemen, Somalia, numerous other countries, and his own affected by the scourge of US policies.
The good news is Washington “failed to make up a global anti-Russian coalition,” said Lavrov.
“We are engaged in a dialogue with the majority of the countries. Support of the world community for Russia’s balanced policy is growing.”
America makes more enemies than friends. Pressure won’t force Russia to change its foreign policy, Lavrov stressed.
Obama’s new National Security Strategy reflects US business as usual, he said – permanent wars against invented enemies.
Obama’s lunatic aim for “global dominance and readiness to use military force unilaterally to ensure American interests” threatens everyone, said Lavrov.
He “mentions over a hundred times the exceptional right of the US to exercise the notorious American leadership.”
He believes it’s “inevitable…(I)t looks like the White House forgot what seeking hegemony to the detriment of other countries’ interests may lead to.”
“…(T)he ferocity that we see in (Britain and other) Western capitals now exceeds the levels seen during the…Cold War.”
Lavrov clearly sees the danger of heading things toward possible East/West war responsible leaders don’t want.
Britain announced sending combat troops to Ukraine masquerading as military trainers.
An unnamed Kremlin source accused its government of “apparently prepar(ing) to derail” Minsk.
“Statements from London that say there’s no military solution to the Ukrainian crisis amid this move appear to be at least hypocritical and a case of gambling with the security of all Europe in worst-case scenario,” it added.
Ceasefire is largely holding, but for how long. Its fragility suggests conflict could resume any time at Washington’s discretion.
It uses Kiev’s military as a proxy force waging naked aggression in Europe’s heartland. Battleground Ukraine is pretext for targeting Russia.
Anyone paying attention knows Washington’s main objective is toppling its government. Replacing it with one it controls.
Risking nuclear war to achieve its objective. No nation threatens humanity’s survival more than America. None is governed more recklessly and ruthlessly.
Former Czech health minister Ivan David said Washington is turning Europe into a battlefield.
EU nations “whose elites are taking orders from an alien, American power, (are) leading the whole continent to the slaughterhouse,” he stressed.
They should partner with Russia to survive, he believes. Europe needs “new elites.” Current ones may set the entire continent ablaze.
They’re “promised they will be allowed to survive if they diligently serve (US interests) at the expense of their own peoples.”
If Europe wants to survive, it needs fundamental new policy, he stressed.
Tinderbox conditions remain in Donbass. Kiev beginning to withdraw heavy weapons may be more head-fake than willingness to observe Minsk.
On February 27, Sputnik News said its forces “will leave enough units and equipment along the line of contact (on the pretext of being able) to react to a possible ceasefire violation.”
Fascists in charge violated previous ceasefire agreements straightaway. It takes a giant leap of faith to believe they’ll observe what they systematically rejected before – regardless of what they agreed to in Minsk or say publicly.
Washington calls the shots. It’s Kiev’s paymaster. Obama deplores peace. He wants war. He wants total control over his newest colony.
Expect conflict to resume at his discretion. Maybe this time potentially affecting the entire continent.
Canada and Australia saying they’ll send combat troops to Ukraine under the guise of military trainers ups the stakes for more war.
Humanity’s fate hangs in the balance. Paul Craig Roberts addressed the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow via Skype.
He discussed reckless neocon policies responsible for wrecking Reagan/Gorbachev rapprochement – saving the world in the 1980s from possible humanity destroying nuclear war.
Soviet Russia’s dissolution “removed the only constraint on Washington’s power to act unilaterally abroad,” said Roberts.
The Gulf and Baltic wars followed. The rape of Yugoslavia was prelude for Bush/Obama post-9/11 permanent direct and proxy wars in multiple theaters.
America’s maniacal drive for global hegemony may kill us all. Neocon lunatics making policy intend stopping at nothing to assure no nation challenges US dominance.
Life on earth is threatened like never before. Possible nuclear war should scare everyone. Western propaganda heads things toward the unthinkable.
Poroshenko wants US-led NATO doing his fighting for him in the next planned phase of war. It bears repeating.
It could start anytime at Obama’s discretion. Perhaps it’s a major US/Kiev false flag away.
Something big like 9/11 to get US-NATO forces directly involved risking war with Russia.
Ukraine is rearming in preparation for more war. After contracting with the UAE for US-made weapons, it agreed to buy drones and electronic warfare from France’s Thales Group.
Kiev official Oleg Gladkovsky said “contracts have been reached with US companies.” He provided no further details.
Ukraine is broke. It’s bankrupt. Where is it getting money to buy expensive weapons?
IMF funds supposedly exclude using them for war-making. The idea being they’re to pay bankers first. Apparently enough wiggle room permits virtually anything.
Bloomberg cited an unnamed source saying conflict in Donbass “would make it tougher for Ukraine to maintain its economic commitments to the IMF and (service its debt) while deepening the fund’s involvement in the worst standoff in Europe sine the end of the Cold War.”
Congress may provide a billion dollars more in aid. House legislation introduced authorizes the secretaries of defense and state “to provide assistance, including training, equipment, lethal weapons of a defensive nature (sic), logistics support, supplies and services, and sustainment to the military and national security forces of Ukraine through September 30, 2017.”
The measure ludicrously says it’s to help Kiev secure its “sovereign territory against foreign aggressors (and promote) conditions for a negotiated settlement to end the conflict.”
Providing funds for weapons assures more conflict. Initiating it depends on:
  • what lunatics in Washington have in mind;
  • whether US forces will be directly involved; and
  • if or how efforts are made to draw Russia into a war on its border it wants ended once and for all.
For now, things are relatively (not entirely) calm. On Thursday, DPR Prime Minister Alexander Zakharcehcko issued the following statement in good faith:
“In pursuance of the Declaration of 12.02.2015 and the ‘Package of measures concerning implementation of the Minsk Agreement,’  the Donetsk People’s Republic has withdrawn heavy armament to the agreed upon and registered by the given document distance.”
As of Friday morning, withdrawal of artillery, mortars and heavy equipment was 90% completed.
Zakharchenko said “(t)he Ukrainian side (so far) evades (its) commitments” beyond token withdrawals to positions not in compliance with Minsk.
“In case of violation by the Ukrainian side, (DPR) reserve(s) the right to return heavy armaments to the places of previous dislocation…”
DPR holds Kiev fully responsible if Minsk fails like previous ceasefires.
If sporadic “shelling and attacks do not stop,” said Zakharchenko, “we reserve the right to consider the Minsk agreement wrecked by the Ukrainian side.”
“Military equipment will be returned to their previous positions. All attempts to attack our settlements will be checked in the bud.”
Zakharchenko said LPR leadership intends a similar announcement. Poroshenko’s latest comment should give them cause for concern.
He lied claiming a continued rebel “military threat.” Saying Kiev intends repositioning heavy weapons in front line positions any time he says they violated Minsk – whether true or false.
Throughout months of conflict, Kiev, Washington, other Western nations, Eastern European NATO members, and media scoundrels repeatedly accused rebels of Kiev crimes.
Expect a similar Big Lie to launch the next phase of conflict. Likely threatening Europe more than any time since WW II.
Will its leaders risk everything staying loyal to Washington’s imperial madness? Will their populations allow them to do it at the risk of their own demise?
