الوهابية حصان طروادة لتطويق روسيا والصين واستعداء إيران

يونيو 17, 2017

محمد صادق الحسيني

لن يطول الوقت كثيراً حتى يُكشف الغطاء ويُبان المستور من الفيلم الأميركي الجديد، بأن ما وراء «حفلة» قطر إنما هو تهيئة الأجواء لمواجهة أكبر تتحضّر لها إدارة ترامب بهدف استعادة زمام المبادرة الاستراتيجية المنفلت من يدها…!

وكلما يمرّ يوم جديد على العاصفة الرعدية الخليجية المنبعثة من صحراء الربع الخالي يتأكد للمتابع الفطن بأن ما يُسمى أزمة قطر ليست سوى حصان طروادة لتتويج «إسرائيل» إلهاً بديلاً في شبه الجزيرة العربية…!

وإليكم ما تقوله عيون الراصد:

أولاً: يجب أن لا يختلف عاقلان حول حقيقة أن ما يُطلق عليه اسم «الأزمة القطرية السعودية « ليست أكثر من «حلقة من مسلسل هوليودي مضبوط السيطرة» تم التخطيط له وتنفيذه من قبل صناع القرار في الولايات المتحدة، آخذين بعين الاعتبار حيثيات صراع الادوار والنفوذ بين الأداتين المحليتين المتنافستين على قيادة الوهابية والمختلفتين على شكل توظيف الحركات الإخوانية…!

ونعني هنا بصناع القرار الأميركي دوائر الدولة العميقة هناك مثل البنتاغون ووكالة الاستخبارات المركزية الاميركية، وذلك لتحقيق أهداف عدة مجملها يرمي الى تعزيز الوجود الأميركي العسكري وترسيخه في غرب آسيا المسماة غربياً بـ «الشرق الأوسط» مع عدم تحمل التكلفة المالية لهذا الحضور العسكري الاستراتيجي من قبل الحكومة الأميركية…!

هل نسينا أن واضعي مخطط هذه «الأزمة» هم أنفسهم من كان كلّف ولا زال كلاً من السعودية وقطر بدعم التنظيمات الإرهابية في العالم بأسره وليس في سورية والعراق وليبيا والصومال واليمن فحسب…!؟

وعليه فإن السيد الأميركي هو الذي يقوم بتوزيع الأدوار في إطار خدمة استراتيجيته العالمية الثابتة والوحيدة ألا وهي الهيمنة على العالم ونهب خيرات شعوبه…!

وضمن خطوات هذه الاستراتيجية جاء تنفيذ هذه الخطوة بهدف تبرئة مملكة آل سعود من تهمة الإرهاب تمهيداً لدمجها السعودية في ما يُطلق عليه حلف الناتو العربي ومن خلال تسهيل إعلان خيانتها السرية للمبادئ العربية والإسلامية والاعتراف بالكيان الصهيوني والتنازل عن الحق العربي المسيحي الإسلامي في فلسطين…

وها هم عبيد السيد الأميركي في الرياض، وبأمر من سيدهم في واشنطن، يتفاوضون سراً وعلانية مع المحتل الصهيوني وبشكل مباشر، جنباً الى جنب مع رموز السلطه الفلسطينية والحكومه الأردنية، على تسيير رحلات جوية مباشره من مطار اللد الفلسطيني المحتل مطار تل أبيب إلى الديار المقدسة في الحجاز. ولا يُستبعد أن يتم إنجاز الترتيبات التقنية المتعلقة بتسيير هذه الرحلات قبل موسم الحج المقبل، مما يجعل مواصلة مسيرة الخيانة مع الكيان الصهيوني تتسارع وبشكل كبير.

ثانياً: وهذا يعني بالإضافة الى ما ذكر أعلاه أن المخططين الأميركيين قد اتهموا قطر بدعم الإرهاب ولكنهم لم يُبرئوا السعودية من التهمة نفسها، بل على العكس من ذلك تماماً، حيث انهم كانوا قد وجهوا لها هذه التهمة وبشكل اكثر جدية وقانونية عندما سنوا قانون «جاستا» الذي يخوّل متضرري تدمير برجي التجارة العالمية في نيويورك سنة 2001 مقاضاة السعودية امام المحاكم الأميركية وطلب تعويضات باهظة منها. حيث قام فريق محامي أهالي القتلى، الذي يتابع القضية، بتقدير المبالغ التي ستطالب حكومة آل سعود بدفعها بستة ترليونات دولار 6000,000,000,000 أي ستة آلاف مليار دولار وهو مبلغ يعادل ثلث قيمة الديون الأميركية.

لذا فإن الساحر الأميركي المسمّى ترامب لم يحل أزمة مملكة آل سعود بل إنه وظفها لجني المزيد من مليارات الدولارات العربية والتي ستوظف تمويل مشاريع توسعة قواعده العسكرية وتمويل زيادة إنفاقه العسكري الهائل ضمن عمليات الحشد العسكري الاستراتيجي ضد كلّ من روسيا والصين.

بمعنى أن ابتزازه قطر، بعد افتعال أكذوبة الأزمة وإرغامها على تنفيذ الجزء الأول من صفقة طائرات ف 15 والتي تشمل 72 طائرة من هذا الطراز تبلغ قيمتها الإجمالية اثنين وعشرين مليار دولار، حيث وقع وزير الدفاع القطري خالد العطيظة اتفاقيظة توريد نصف هذه الصفقة بقيمة 12 مليار دولار يوم 14/6/2017 في البنتاغون، نقول إن ابتزازه للقطري بعد إتمام ابتزازه للسعودي الذي سلّم الدفعة الاولى من الاتاوة المفروضة عليه أي أن القطري قد شرع في دفع الإتاوة المطلوبة منه لسيده الأميركي كما سبقته الى ذلك مملكة آل سعود وبالتالي بدأت مشاركته الفعلية في تمويل وتجهيز البنى العسكرية الأميركية الجديدة في الشرق الأوسط، والتي سيكون «الإسرائيلي» جزءاً أساسياً منها، بل وله دور قيادي فيها، والموجّهة ضد روسيا والصين وحلفائهم الإيرانيين والسوريين والعراقيين.

ثالثاً: كما تجب الإشارة إلى أن ما يقوم به البهلوان التركي، أردوغان، في اللعب على الحبال في إطار الموضوع القطري ليس إلا جزءاً من المخطط الأميركي لتعزيز الوجود العسكري الأميركي وأداته الشمال أطلسية، حلف الناتو، في المنطقة العربية إمعاناً منه في عمليات التطويق الاستراتيجي المباشر للجمهورية الاسلامية الإيرانية، حيث قواعده الكبرى في العديد والسيليه في مشيخة قطر، بالاضافة الى قواعده الاخرى في مملكة آل سعود وفي مشيخة البحرين، حيث توجد قيادة الأسطول الأميركي الخامس والذي صرّح قائده قبل يومين بأنه أرسل سفينتين حربيتين أميركيتين في زيارة لميناء الدوحة… فلماذا لا تقاطعون الدولة الراعية للإرهاب بدلاً من زيارتها، إذا كنتم صادقين…!؟

نقول إن الدور التركي ما هو إلا جزء من التحشدات الاستراتيجية ضد إيران وكلٍّ من روسيا والصين. وإلا فكيف يسمح السيد الأميركي لذنبه العثماني الجديد بإقامة قاعدة عسكرية وإرسال خمسة آلاف جندي تركي الى دولة تتهمها الولايات المتحدة بدعم الإرهاب!؟

وما هي حجة ترامب في تبريره فرض العقوبات الجديدة على إيران؟ بحجة تهمهم الباطلة لإيران بتمويل ودعم الاٍرهاب وهي الدولة الأكثر تضرراً من الإرهاب والأكثر تصدّياً لمحاربته في العالم كله!؟

إن السماح للسلطان العثماني بإرسال لواءي قوات بحرية خاصة إلى قاعدته في قطر إلى جانب قرار البنتاغون الصادر يوم أمس بإرسال أربعة آلاف جندي أميركي جديد الى أفغانستان لا يتساوق إلا مع خطط العدوان الأميركية ضد القوى الدولية والإقليمية المعادية لهيمنة القطب الواحد…!

ولا تنسوا هنا تصريحات الثعلب التركي المراوغ الجديدة ضد إيران واتهامها بالتوسعية والطائفية…!!

رابعاً: ثم كيف لنا أن نفسر الوجود الكثيف للغواصات الأميركية في شمال النرويج؟ ذلك الحشد البحري الذي تطرّق إليه الرئيس بوتين في حواره التلفزيوني يوم أمس الأول مع الشعب الروسي!؟

هل تريد الولايات المتحدة محاربة كوريا الشمالية انطلاقظاً من القطب المتجمّد الشمالي!؟ أم هي خطوة ضمن مسلسل الاستعدادات الجارية تحضيراً لعدوان واسع على روسيا بسبب فشل سياسة العقوبات الأميركية ضدها والتي ألحقت الضرر بأذناب أميركا الأوروبيين الذين انصاعوا لتنفيذ أوامر سيدهم الأميركي مما كلّفهم خسائر اقتصادية فاقت المئة مليار دولار، بينما تمكنت السياسة الروسية الحكيمة من الحدّ من خسائر روسيا الاقتصادية نتيجة ذلك الحصار وإبقائها في حدود الخمسين مليار دولار.

وما يعزز نظريتنا حول الاستعدادات العسكرية الأميركية الجارية في إطار تطوير ومراكمة الحشد الاستراتيجي المعادي لقوى ومكونات التحالف الصيني الروسي هي تصريحات الأدميرال هاري هاريس، قائد الأساطيل البحرية الاميركية في المحيط الهادئ والتي اتهم فيها روسيا بخرق اتفاقيات الحدّ من انتشار الصواريخ الاستراتيجية. هذا الاتهام الذي لا يمت الى الواقع بصلة وإنما هو تمهيد لنشر المزيد من الأسلحة الصاروخية الاميركية سواء في دول البلطيق او دول أوروبا الشرقية او دول «الشرق الاوسط»…

وما قيام الولايات المتحدة بتحريك بطاريات صواريخ HIMRAS البعيدة المدى من قواعدها في الأردن الى داخل الاراضي السورية وبحجة حفظ أمن قواتها هناك إلا جزء من الإجراءات العدوانية المشار اليها أعلاه. إذ ما هي حاجتهم لصواريخ يبلغ مداها 300 كم؟ خاصة أنهم يقولون بأنهم موجودون هناك لمحاربة داعش في معاقله في الرقة والموصل..!؟

إنها إذن صواريخ العدوان التي يريدون من ورائها التلويح بالقوة للجيش العربي السوري وحلفائه في الميدان السوري في محاولة لوقف او إبطاء سير الهجوم الاستراتيجي النهائي الذي ينفّذه السوري بمساعدة الحلفاء الروس، وتحت قيادة مباشرة للعمليات القتالية من قبل الجنرال قاسم سليماني إلى جانب إخوانه جنرالات الأركان في الجيش العربي السوري وقوات الرضوان اللبنانية وسائر القوات الرديفة…

إنها قاعدة جديدة او تعزيز وتوسيع لقاعدة أميركية موجودة على الأرض السورية أصلاً والتي لن يطول الزمن حتى يتم تدميرها وإبادة من فيها من جنود أميركيين ومرتزقة بمسمّياتهم المختلفة…

إن أرض سورية وبلاد الشام لن تكون لا ممراً ولا مقراً لكم، أيها الحمقى..

إنها معراجنا إلى السماء ومقبرة للغزاة كانت لنا وستبقى لنا..

لذلك ننصحكم أن احملوا أمتعتكم وارحلوا عن ديارنا سريعاً، قبل أن تصلكم عواصف أسودنا التي ستجعلكم كعصف مأكول فيما أموال وعديد عبيدكم الإقليميين هشيمٌ تذروه الرياح..!

ساعتئذ ستترحّمون على ما حصل لكم في بيروت في العام 1983م…!

هل تتذكّرون…!؟

بعدنا طيّبين قولوا الله.

Trump Visits Bethlehem Bearing Gifts to Child Killers

Finian Cunningham

May 20, 2017

US President Donald Trump makes his first overseas visit this weekend, beginning in the Middle East and continuing to Europe. His tour to the “holy land” is being presented with feel-good, messianic spin.

Trump touches down first in Saudi Arabia, then will go Israel and from there make a pilgrimage to Bethlehem in the Palestinian territories. After his stop at the reputed birthplace of Jesus, the American president will then fly to the Vatican, where he will be greeted by Roman Catholic Pope Francis. He will later meet NATO military leaders in Brussels.

resenting the president’s Middle East itinerary like a momentous religious event, Trump’s senior national security adviser General HR McMaster said:

“This trip is truly historic. No president has ever visited the homelands and holy sites of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths all on the same trip. And what President Trump is seeking is to unite peoples of all faiths around a common vision of peace, progress and prosperity.”

The White House, reported the Washington Post, described it as “an effort to unite three of the world’s leading religious faiths in the common cause of fighting terrorism, reining in Iran and unifying the world against intolerance.”

Hold it. Screech the brakes on this Hollywood-type script of Saint Donald saving the world. What utter claptrap.

The main purpose of his sojourn is to cut a record arms deal with Saudi Arabia and the other closely aligned Gulf Arab monarchies. While in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, addressing regional leaders about “world peace,” Trump is set to sign off weapons deals worth $350 billion. That’s more than double what his predecessor Barack Obama flogged to the Saudi rulers during his presidency.

According to Bloomberg, topping the list of US arms transfers are warships, helicopter gunships, anti-missile systems and tanks.

The THAAD anti-missile system, recently debuted in South Korea, is said to be among the inventory for the Saudis and other Gulf states to the tune of $10 billion. The crisis in Korea provides a convenient sales pitch to the Saudis. Maybe that’s partly why the Trump administration has dangerously provoked the tensions in Asia, precisely to push through their THAAD sales in the Middle East.

In addition to the weapons purchases, the Saudi rulers are also promising to invest $40 billion from their oil-rich sovereign wealth funds in American companies.

Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and personal adviser, has been instrumental in lining up the mega sales, in conjunction with the Saudi deputy Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman. The 30-year-old son of King Salman, who is also the defense minister, has been courting the Trump presidency ever since the election last November.

The Saudi prince, known as MBS by the Trump inner circle, is the chief strategist behind the Saudi war on Yemen since March 2015. That war is a blatant aggression on Yemen carried out by Saudi forces supplied by the US and Britain. Thousands of children have been killed in Saudi air strikes, using internationally banned cluster bombs in indiscriminate attacks on civilian centers.

Just days before Trump’s departure to the Middle East, Saudi air strikes reportedly killed 23 civilians, including six children, near the southern Yemeni city of Taiz.

Millions of other Yemeni children are dying from starvation and preventable diseases like cholera because of a naval blockade imposed on the country by Saudi and American forces. No doubt the new warships that Trump is lining up for Saudi Arabia will add to the “efficacy” of the genocide that is underway in Yemen.

With staggering cynicism, the Trump administration is “justifying” this ramped-up military support for Saudi Arabia as an effort to “fight terrorism” and to “counter Iranian meddling” in the region.

It is alleged that Iran is sponsoring militia in Yemen, Syria and Iraq and this is posing a threat to regional stability. Such claims are an insult to common intelligence, when we know that it is the American CIA and their Saudi client regime who have bankrolled and directed terrorism across the entire Middle East over many years in order to serve hegemonic interests of regime change.

But what is disturbing is just how braindead the Trump administration is. Trump is recklessly promoting the ridiculous fantasy that Saudi Arabia and its despotic terror-sponsoring clients are somehow the custodians of law and order. He is also pumping up the surreal Saudi narrative that Iran is largely responsible for the Middle East’s conflicts.

When the American president addresses Saudi and other Muslim leaders in Riyadh this weekend supposedly on the challenges of finding regional peace, two nations are banned from the gathering – Iran and Syria.

Saudi rulers have recently threatened Iran with fomenting a Syria-style proxy war inside Iran. The record arsenal of weapons that Trump is bringing to Saudi Arabia will only embolden its House of Saud tinpot dictators to pursue even more confrontation with Iran. Much of the small-arms weaponry that the Americans supply to Saudi Arabia already ends up in the hands of terror groups like Jabhat al Nusra and Daesh (so-called Islamic State).

There are perplexing signs that the US under Trump is ratcheting up military aggression toward Iran and its ally Syria. This week, US warplanes reportedly attacked Syrian armed forces and Iranian allies Hezbollah in southern Syria. It was the second such direct assault on Syria after Trump ordered Tomahawk missile strikes on the Shayrat airbase in April.

Syrian sources claim that the latest US air strike was carried out to protect militants being trained by American special forces inside Syrian territory. Those militants, known as Maghaweer al Thawra, are part of the Al Qaeda terror network, according to independent journalist Vanessa Beeley in email correspondence with this author.

Seems more than coincidence that the latest US operation was timed with Trump’s departure for Saudi Arabia. This is the kind of military action that the Saudis were constantly pushing the Obama administration to carry out. The strike on Iranian interests too will no doubt endear the new US commander-in-chief even more to his Saudi clients.

Trump’s messianic zeal to visit the Middle East – his first foreign destination being the dubious human rights “haven” Saudi Arabia – is all about flogging ever more deadly weapons to the already explosively-charged region. So desperate is Trump to pimp billions of dollars that he is willing to fuel war with Iran and perhaps Syria’s other ally, Russia, in the pursuit of lucre.

And to add further insult to injury, the whole tour of the “holy land” is being sold by the American government and media as some kind of benevolent religious duty to mankind and world peace.

The only “gifts” that Trump is bringing to Bethlehem and the region are ever more monstrous ways to murder children.

If Pope Francis had any integrity, or even news savvy, he should cancel Trump’s call at the Vatican, and explain exactly that child-killing regimes are not welcome.

Making America great… again?

May 16, 2017

by Ghassan KadiMaking America great… again?

The more pre-election, post-election and even post-inauguration promises that President Trump breaks, the harder he makes it for himself to “Make America Great again”. But this narrative herein is not based on the political rhetoric and broken promises, rather, it is about a hypothetical scenario that questions if America is realistically able to bring Trump’s slogan to fruition.

“Make America Great Again” is a catch phrase that implies a restoration process of a bygone station of greatness. So before one explores the chances of success of such an ambition, one ought to go back to the basics of how and when America was great in the first place.

Admittedly, America has historically been a country of dreams for many. The pop culture of the 1960’s has even had songs about wanting to live in America and surfing USA. The dream has been realistic and fathomable, especially for Europeans who wanted to seek a better life, and thus the flow of migration began as soon as settlement began, and that flow was later on mirrored by the rest of the world, and it did not stop as yet.

But historically also, America was never a dream for its native people; quite the contrary. The influx of white migrants into America has resulted in one of the greatest, bloodiest and definitely the longest lasting genocides that spanned for over four whole centuries.

As for the young African men and women, even boys and girls, who were raided and stolen from their tribes and villages, taken away from their parents, loved ones and friends, to be sold and traded as slaves, put to hard labour, raped and killed, there was nothing for them to dream for at all in regard to America.

A dream for some and a nightmare for others, it would be hard to say that defining America as a dream has ever been a description that has been ubiquitously endorsed during its early-mid stages of nation-building. Did the global consensus change later on?

As the new nation that became known as the United States of America became independent in the late eighteenth century, another century later, it suffered from a brutal civil war and the new nation was not really able to stand on its feet and have its place on the global scene until the union was saved and Lincoln managed to pass his 13th amendment.

As a result, America prospered, and later on, late in the nineteenth century, America became the biggest global economy, and in hindsight, the few decades that followed up until WWI, America came the closest ever to being great at different levels. President Woodrow Wilson made it clear that the USA did not join the war for any gain of territory or to build an empire. He was instrumental in setting up the “League of Nations”, the predecessor of the UN.

All the while ignoring that the 13th amendment did not stop racial segregation and we shouldn’t, ignoring that racial inequality persisted and we also shouldn’t, was this short period, the few decades spanned in between the presidencies of Lincoln and Truman enough to classify America as a great nation?

To answer this properly, we must define greatness from a humane perspective. After all, if we allow ourselves to base greatness on wealth, we will have to accept that the Rothschilds, the Soroses and the Rockefellers are the greatest people on earth, but are they? Who is a greater person George Soros or Jonas Salk who invented the anti-polio Salk vaccine and donated it to the world and refused to take any royalties?

The real greatness of people and nations ought to be gauged by their contribution to humanity, easing its pain, spreading knowledge, spearheading liberation and enlightenment, and not by their wealth.

Or is greatness a subject of might?

The post-WWII era in which America was elevated to the level of the world’s first nuclear power and most powerful nation, has left behind a legacy of wars that began in Korea and went on unstopped to Syria and counting, and has left a trail of destruction, tens of millions of civilians killed, mostly from impoverished developing countries. Economies were destroyed, infrastructures decimated, which again begs the question, how and when exactly was America ever great?

Whilst America did offer great opportunity for a great number of select people for a great number of years, based on the proper and relevant criteria of greatness, it can be fair to say that America was never really great.

Surely, many people were attracted to America to go and live there and partake in the big “American Dream”, be able to buy a Chevy, buy a house in the suburbs and send their kids to the best schools and universities in the world, all the while have the best doctors and hospitals at their beck and call. But in reality, what is the percentage of Americans who were able to afford those luxuries even during the years of economic boom?

Whilst it might be true to say that in the 1950’s – 1970’s or so, America might have had a living standard that was higher than most other nations, the standard is shrinking at an alarming rate. With nearly 50 million Americans currently on food stamps, it becomes imperative to realize that today’s USA is a country that is wrought with poverty.

But poverty is not America’s only current problem, and when Trump claims that he wants to” Make America Great Again”, assuming he means it, one wonders if he is simply talking about rebuilding America’s financial prowess.

So if Trump’s take on greatness stops with money, how far can the best ever financial reform process go? Not that there is any sign of it coming from the Trump administration, not that we can see that he is keeping his word by putting America first and stopping all wars, but we must remember that we are looking at a hypothetical situation here, one that has nothing to do with Trump.

In other words, is America able to become great again if Trump was indeed serious about his promise?

The formal and declared American debt stands at nearly $20 trillion dollars, and if calculated on a per capita basis, the figure amounts to $60,000 per every man, woman, and child. But this debt is the tip of the iceberg. With collapsing infrastructure like roads, dams, river levees, schools, airports etc, the restoration of those public facilities constitutes overhead costs that are not budgeted for. They are simply ignored and allowed to decay and rot. These are referred to as “unfunded liabilities”.

It is hard to put an accurate figure on the value of those unfunded liabilities and the estimates vary greatly from a low of $150 trillion to a high of $350 trillion. At the higher estimate figure, the individual debt balloons to nearly $9 million, again, for every man, woman and child. But even at the lower end, the per capita figure is shyly short of $4 million.

When we make balance sheets we have to look not only at liabilities, but also at assets. The estimate of America’s total assets is another elastic figure that also varies from $300 to $550 trillion. That said, if the liabilities figure is indeed in the vicinity of the high $350 trillion figure and that of assets is in the vicinity of the low $300 trillion, then America could well and truly be literally insolvent.

We must remember here that even if the high $550 trillion figure is the correct figure of assets, it does not truly mean much because much of the sub-estimates are based on untapped natural and human resources and are based on today’s value of commodities that can easily crash.

Apart from material assets, there was a time when people around the world talked about “the latest thing from America”. America was the world centre of research and development and innovation in all fields of science and technology, but today’s America does not produce enough engineers, doctors and scientists who can bear the load of a techno-financial revolution that can take America out of the trouble it is facing. When we look today at developments such as China’s massive ultra-fast railway, we can foresee that we are not far from talking about “the latest thing from China”.

On the other hand, the slick, “low budget”, and highly advanced Russian military technology has given America a run for its money. The Russians have been playing their game very smartly, exposing the Americans to a taste of what’s up their sleeve, and –God forbid- in the event of a major escalation between the two super powers, America may find itself with bases and fleets exposed as sitting ducks facing an invisible enemy. It is highly likely that the Russians are not trying to “show off”; as it were, but they are sending strong and clear messages of deterrence to their “American partners”.

Back to economy, it seems likely, as a matter of fact we can safely say that it is highly probable that the demise of the American economy has gone too far and beyond repair. It is also possible that Trump has come to this realization after his inauguration, and that after reaching this realization, he made his U-turn on his promises on the basis that all he has left up his sleeve is a stash of nukes and a mighty war machine.

To reconsider the definition of greatness, does President Trump believe that might alone brings greatness and that by escalating the global bullying role of the United States of America he is going to “Make America Great Again”?

America is certainly a nation that has the highest military budget, largest navy and more off-shore military basis than the rest of the world combined, it has had the world’s biggest economy for many decades and continues to enjoy this status, but has never been a great nation that has spread knowledge and wisdom to the rest of the world. It has used its military might in the past to pillage poor countries and its current financial woes are literally impossible to resolve.

But when it comes to military matters, what is pertinent is that most, if not all, American military ventures have failed to achieve their objectives. After reaching a stale-mate in Korea, a total defeat in Vietnam, after two decades into the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq, America is still incapable of gaining the upper hand on the ground.

So if the military is the only trump card left up Trump’s sleeve in order to “Make America Great Again”, on what grounds is he basing his assumption that he can confront and subdue Russia and China combined given that the 125,000 strong American army that invaded Iraq in 2003 was not even able to control the streets of Baghdad?

Ironically, Obama and Trump have both won their campaigns using slogans that are based on desperation; from “Yes We Can” to “Make America Great Again”, the slogans were effectively used to lure in voters who cognize that America is in deep trouble and needs a saviour. Obama has failed and left America with twice the official debt that he inherited on his inauguration day, and Trump will not be able to do much, because like a rusty old car, America is too far gone, and I feel sorry for the good people of America, and there are many of them, including some very good and dear personal friends.

Germany and NATO – Preparing for a Fascist Repression in Europe?

May 15, 2017

by Peter KoenigGermany and NATO – Preparing for a Fascist Repression in Europe?

While Washington is in turmoil, Trump’s firing of FBI’s Director Comey being hailed by some, condemned by others and questioned with innuendo by yet another group of critics, it looks like the U-turn The Donald has supposedly made a few weeks ago, is fizzling out – into a cloud of confusion and chaos. And who are the beneficiaries of this chaos? – The Neocon-Zion-Democrats, who else?

Is Trump becoming, or has already become a Banana Republic dictator? Should he be tried as war criminal along with Obama, Bush, Clinton and their illustrious predecessors, all the way back to JFK and beyond, including those who instigated world wars and conflicts around the globe for the last 200 years? Sadly, there is no justice left in so-called international courts of justice today. They have all been coopted by the hidden bloody fingers, pulling the strings on Washington and Brussels.

Is Trump’s government about to collapse from the pressure of the Neocon-Zion-Demo-Division of the Deep State? Speculations no end, with emerging suggestion that the controversial President had already committed enough unconventional deeds to be impeached; and Russiagate, one of them, is just not going away, despite all logic to the contrary. It is another reflection of the idiocy of the presstitute media. But they get away with it, as long as brainwashed masses still swallow the mass-media’s lies and deceptions in their comfortable armchairs. The swamp in Washington is steaming – and about to swallow politicians from all walks.

Will there be a nuclear war? Who will strike first? Western war-mongering Pentagon and NATO generals hope – that the US will launch a pre-emptive strike against Russia and /or China. It would most likely be triggered by a false flag. For example, North Korea is made believe having launched a (nuclear) attack on Japan. Speculations to this effect have already circulated.

But what if Russia’s early warning system which is based on top-notch technology, detects such an intended first strike and reacts instantly? An atomic WWIII – with full destruction and almost no survivors? All these realistic ideas are tossed up and down – leaving a public on either side of the Atlantic in fear. And we know that fear and confusion are the best weapons to panic and stalemate a population.

Who will survive? – Who will be next? And some even go as far as speculating, who may replace President Trump? – Most obviously, his Vice President, Mike Pence, who fits the neocons’ gambit very well. After all, they were the ones who chose him on Trump’s behalf.

That’s the state of things according to the main stream media. The US is crumbling and the West along with it. The crumbling is very loud. The softer noises are becoming undetectable.

On the European Continent, hidden from the common ear and eye, clandestine warfare against European citizens is planned by – the German Bundeswehr, NATO and other European armed forces. They are preparing for subjugating possible social upheavals, if necessary killing their own citizens – that’s what NATO-inspired Brussels is up to. And the leader, who else, is NATO-inspired Germany – the front runner of European puppets, a position for which France is now competing with Macron – and perhaps winning.

As reported by Susan Bonath, independent investigative journalist, working as a regular contributor for the German Die Junge Welt (The Youth World) – something horrendous is emerging in a small north-eastern town of Germany’s landlocked Federal State of Saxony-Anhalt. In one of Europe’s most modern military training camps, an entire ghost town is being built at the tune of several hundred billion euros. Most of the German (or European) tax-payers have never heard of it. By 2018 the facility will be ready for troop training to fight European citizens in European cities, should they dare to go on the barricades against the atrocities of their leaders and oligarchs.

The concept is only new to Europe. The US, for years, has been building hidden garrisons around ‘vulnerable’ agglomerations – New York, Detroit, Chicago – and many more – ready to strike if massive protests should break out. For last November’s US Presidential election, they have been put on high alert. In fact, intensive troop movements could be observed from the air.

With Macron’s ‘election’ to President of France – or rather the Rothschild shoe-in – to protect the financial oligarchs of France and Europe, to shield unfettered capitalism from social disturbances, Europe is fast moving towards a state of fascist repression, accompanied by a fascist economy, a double whammy for the rich, and a double barrier aimed at eliminating peoples’ freedom to live decent and happy lives.

In his victory speech, Macron said as a priority that France will be first in ’fighting terrorism’. This is unconstrained support to the continuation of the ‘false flag’ approach, killing a few of your own citizens or policemen, to justify further and further clamp-downs on civil liberties. France, under Hollande, Washington’s ultra-puppet, has Europe’s most solid track record for false flag attacks. France may become the first country in Europe to put a permanent State of Emergency – akin to Martial Law – into her Constitution. Where Hollande so far had failed, Macron may succeed. Such an example would most like make school throughout vassal Europe. The training facilities in northern Germany, supported by Madame Merkel, to oppress and kill protesting Europeans fall right in line with Macron’s Machiavellian philosophy.

On the other hand, Greece is the epitome of the killing of a nation by financial instruments. The Greek allow it for reasons beyond logic. Maybe for fear not obeying and choosing the only way out, GREXIT, might be worse than financial strangulation? – These are apparently the arguments voiced, but unsubstantiated, by former Greek Finance Minister Varoufakis, who is ever so much interested in staying in the limelight, influencing public opinion by his self-styled stardom. Is this caviar leftist supporting his country’s demise as a deterrent for others who might want to regain sovereignty from the bulldozers of Washington and Brussels?

George Orwell comes to mind, when he says, referring to James Burnham’s The Machiavellians – “a democratic society has never existed and, so far as we can see, never will exist. Society is of its nature oligarchical, and the power of the oligarchy always rests upon force and fraud… Power can sometimes be won and maintained without violence, but never without fraud.”

This extends well to Globalization’s declaration of Justice: “All that’s yours is mine, and all that’s mine is mine.”

Wake up and beware, what’s brewing at the NATO-German urban training camp ground is a defense mechanism to assure the ruling class privileges will never be lost. Europeans – on the barricades now, before it’s too late!

One Day, Three Serious News Stories That Turn Out To Be False

By Moon Of Alabama

May 16, 2017 “Information Clearing House” – It is a fakenews day. Three stories are making the rounds through the media that are each based on false or widely exaggerated interpretation of claims. North Korea, Syria and the U.S. President are the targets.

1. The Wall Street Journal asserts with a #fakenews headline that bits of computer-code in the recent WannaCry ransom virus are identical with bits of computer code that was allegedly used in a 2014 hack of Sony. (The Sony attack was falsely attributed to North Korea.)

Researchers Identify Clue Connecting Ransomware Assault to Group Tied to North Korea

Neel Mehta, a security researcher at Alphabet Inc.’s Google unit, on Monday pointed out similarities between that earlier WannaCry variant and code used in a series of attacks that security specialists have attributed to the Lazarus group.

The “Lazerus group” (which probably does not exist at all) was attributed to North Korean state agencies. Six paragraphs later we learn that the “similarities” were found in often reused code:

The findings don’t necessarily demonstrate that Lazarus or North Korea was involved in the WannaCry attack, researchers said. The culprits in the latest attack, who haven’t been identified, could have copied the code in question, for example.

The connection found in the old version lies in software that both programs use to securely connect to other systems over the internet, said Kurt Baumgartner, a Kaspersky Lab researcher.

Common code is found in nearly all software that sets up an internet connection. The reason for that is quite simple. No longer does anyone ever write such code. There are well tested examples of such program snippets widely available in open-source software on Github and elsewhere. “Copy and paste” is done faster than re-inventing the wheel. Even worse – the code snippet in question here is so trivial that any decent programmer would likely write it the very same way (a call to the Time() function to get a seed value for a following call to the Random() function). There are only X reasonable ways to add 1 to 1. Two people doing it the same way proves nothing at all. People copying publicly available code proves nothing either. It certainly does not prove that code for two different hacks was written by the same people. It does not provided that these bugs have anything at all to do with North Korea. The bits of similarities are of zero factual news value.

2. Back in February Amnesty International (which promotes NATO interventions) issued a sensational report about alleged killings in Syrian prisons. As we wrote at that time:

A new Amnesty International report claims that the Syrian government hanged between 5,000 and 13,000 prisoners in a military prison in Syria. The evidence for that claim is flimsy, based on hearsay of anonymous people outside of Syria. The numbers themselves are extrapolations that no scientist or court would ever accept. It is tabloid reporting and fiction style writing from its title “Human Slaughterhouse” down to the last paragraph.

The U.S. State Department now reused that fake report and adds wrongly interpreted satellite pics to further slander the Syrian government:

US: Syria is burning bodies to hide proof of mass killings

In its latest accusations of Syrian abuses, the State Department said it believed about 50 detainees each day are being hanged at Saydnaya military prison, about 45 minutes north of Damascus. Many of the bodies are then burned in the crematorium “to cover up the extent of mass murders taking place,” said Stuart Jones, the top U.S. diplomat for the Middle East, accusing Assad’s government of sinking “to a new level of depravity.”

The department released commercial satellite photographs showing what it described as a building in the prison complex that was modified to support the crematorium. The photographs, taken over the course of several years, beginning in 2013, do not prove the building is a crematorium, but show construction consistent with such use.

If there was a crematorium being build in the Saydnaya prison how is it that none of the Amnesty witness said so in the recent Amnesty report? These witnesses, Amnesty claims, have been in that prison and observed all kind of details. They claim that any dead were buried in mass graves.

A Dutch military expert looks at the commercial satellite pictures and the interpretation State provided and asks:

Ian Grant‏ @Gjoene – 6:02 PM – 15 May 2017

Is this a joke @StateDept? Even before 27 Aug ’13 these “vents” were present. See included Terraserver footage (03 april ’13) #Sednaya

Another reconnaissance specialist expands on that:

Aldin Abazović @CT_operative – 5:33 PM – 15 May 2017

Pictures that allegedly show crematorium of Saidnaya prison, #Damascus #Syria. As much as I hate to get involved into this matter, these #1
#2 images prove nothing at all. This building could be simple boiler/heating room for the prison compound. Unless you visit there is no
#3 way to prove anything. Its easy to manipulate with satellite imagery. You just put the right label on thing and there you have it
#4 I can’t confirm what the particular part of prison is nor for what it’s used.

The State Department has no evidence for its “crematorium claim” but the Amnesty report which says nothing about a crematorium at the prison and some satellite pictures that do not show what the State Department claims. It is throwing dirt at the Syria government in the hope that some of it will stick. This release of nothing will create some headlines in “western” outrage publications. It may be in propaganda preparation for a wider war on Syria.

3. The deep state is out to get U.S. President Trump impeached. Yesterday a new, well prepared and coordinated campaign against Trump was launched. Anonymous claims to the Washington Post were “confirmed” by similar claims from (likely) the same sources to Buzzfeed. The claims may have some grounds in reality but the actual facts, even as described in shrill words, are harmless. WaPo:

Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador

President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

(Hmm – how would “former U.S. officials” know what was said in the Oval Office and to what consequences?) It takes six paragraphs of such slander to learn what Trump actually disclosed:

Trump went off script and began describing details of an Islamic State terrorist threat related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft.

“Terrorist threat[s] related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft” are a well known method of Al-Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula. If ISIS in Syria has copied that modus operandi it is interesting, but nothing sensational. The details, where ISIS is preparing these operations, may be somewhat relevant, but over how many cites does ISIS actually rule?

National Security Advisor McMaster, who was in the room with Trump and Lavrov, is on the record (down in paragraph eight!) denying that any sources or methods were revealed.

The only real claim here is that Trump gave Lavrov a tip-off with regard to a terrorist threat.

If Putin would learn of a potential ISIS attack on a U.S. passenger jet would you want him to share that secret information with the U.S. government? Of course you would.

But Buzzfeed and other anti-Trump organs blow the claims up to high heavens, The Lawfare writers go off their meds:

If the President gave this information away through carelessness or neglect, he has arguably breached his oath of office.

Utter bullshit. Trump would have offered such intelligence out of courtesy as part of his deal-making with the Russian government. Exchange of threat intelligence is regular business even between parties who otherwise dislike each other. It is in the interests of all to do such. That such an exchange happened is not newsworthy.  even it touched some details.

Even worse – it is the publishing about the Oval office talk that can only help the terrorists. As Emptywheel says:

these very outraged sources are [..] sharing the information that it is so outrageous to share.

If Trump’s information sharing is outrageous why did the sources offer that same information to the global media? Why did WaPo and others publish on it?

Trump was elected with the support of the U.S. military. Clinton was supported by the corporate and intelligence sides of the power triangle. Trump won. Now the deep-state intelligence side, together with the moneyed part of the Democratic party, is out to impeach him. The constant sensationalized dribble of false or irrelevant claims against him prepares the ground for that.

The three fake-news examples above contain no news at all. The bits exposed in them have no information value. Their only purpose is to influence the readers by exaggerating outlandish claims based on little, if any, real facts of minor importance.

This full-throated propagandizing on all channels, without any critical voices challenging the basic facts, is endangering the functioning of democracy. The fourth estate is now just a tool to influence. It can no longer claim to have any inherent value.

For the average person one way out of this onslaught is to search for, use and foster alternative and discerning sources of news. The other is to give up.

Eisenhower’s Farewell Address to the Nation

“This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence – economic, political, even spiritual – is felt in every city, every Statehouse, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society. ”
