Why did Turkey shoot down a Russian Air Force jet?

Turkey is so militarily inferior to Russia that it is unlikely Turkey would commit an act of war against Russia without encouragement from Washington. We might think that Turkey would feel shielded by NATO, but it is doubtful that many European members of NATO would risk nuclear annihiliation by going to war with Russia in order to save Turkey from the consequences of such a reckless and irresponsible act as shooting down a Russian military aircraft and lying about it. Turkey has issued no apology and no believable explanation. Unless Erdogan has lost his mind, Washington is behind the shootdown, and the reason is Washington’s desperation to decode the new Russian technology that gives Russian forces total control over a battlefield, whether on land, sea, or air.

Breaking: Russian Pilot Rescued by Iran’s General Soleimani

Soleimani promised them to return the Russian pilot safe and sound; a promise that was kept in the end, according to the Syrian officer.

After tracing the place of the Russian pilot using his GPS, it was revealed that the pilot was being kept in a place 6km behind the frontline of the clashes between the Syrian army and the opposition.

Six fighters of Hezbollah’s special operation unit and 18 Syrian commandos approached the frontline to carry out the operations and the Russian air force and helicopters concurrently created hellfire in the region and destroyed the terrorists’ headquarters in a way that most of the enemy forces deployed in the region fled the scene and the ground was paved for the special unit’s advance.

The Syrian officer added that every move of the special units was monitored and covered precisely by the Russian satellites in a way that the slightest moves made 100 meters away from the area of operation was reported to them and every moment of the operation was reported to a very high-raking official in the Kremlin (that he thinks was president Putin) and it was clear that he was monitoring the entire operations through satellites from Moscow.

From Zundel to Topham: Zionist theatre

The trials of Arthur Topham, Canadian journalist and publisher of Radical Press, for "hate crime" (2007) and "hate propaganda" (2012) under new Criminal Code “Hate Propaganda” legislation, have resulted in exactly the opposite of what the prosecution, B'Nai Brith, wanted. Instead of quietly muzzling the gadfly critic, the result has been the highlighting of past Jewish hate crimes, and the increasing control by Zionist groups of Canadian politics to promote Israel and censor anti-Zionist criticism.

Thanks ISIS: We "Can't Keep Up With Surging Weapons Demand", Pentagon Says

With many suggesting the world, already gripped in a global terrorism frenzy courtesy of the CIA-created "Islamic State", is on the verge of World War III (and with a NATO power bringing down a Russian fighter jet for the first time in over 60 years one can see where they get that idea) the result has been an unprecedented surge in demand for mode n weapons of all shapes and sizes... made in the US. Demand so high, in fact, that the US simply can't keep up: "It's worldwide. The demand signal is coming in Europe, in the Pacific and in Centcom."

Bad Ass of The Week:Yosuf Alchagirov

November 1, 2013 would be unlike any of the previous 29,200+ days of Yusuf Alchagirov's life.

Today he was going to find himself locked in hand-to-hand combat with a pissed-off 1,000-pound Grizzly Bear armed with razor-sharp six-inch claws the size of kitchen knives and teeth specifically designed for crunching bone and disemboweling the meaty parts of organic life forms.

Yusuf Alchagirov had already had enough of this bear bullshit. The 80 year-old man froze for a second, staring unblinkingly into the predatory eyes of a voracious, man-eating, half-ton killing machine that was preparing to massacre and devour him in a flurry of spikes and gore. Only one thought passed through his mind:

I'm going to fuck this thing up and wear his balls as a hat.

Dead Witnesses to the JFK Assassination: Mind Blowing Video Testimony of a Detective with the Dallas Police Department

“A very good American was murdered over war profits and that fact will never go away for most Americans…
“Mickey Mouse also died with JFK in Viet Nam along with Mom, Pop and Apple Pie, but that’s not all, America’s moral high ground was stolen from its people – along with their honor, their sense of fair play and justice, virtue, the pursuit of happiness; their conscience and duty subjugated with Abu Ghraib torture and an illegal policy of rendition, their loyalty, fidelity and trust – love, hope and dreams were all stolen, replaced with poverty and fear, all trust gone now in the wake of a global war for wealth.

“But the public consciousness has discovered and is examining the depth of the theft of not just monetary wealth, but the theft of those virtues the theft of their honor; a grand theft without any precedent in history; theft of the ownership of self through debt.

Who’s in Control? Obama or the generals?

US President Barack Obama’s business-like meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G20 summit at the weekend belies a spate of bellicose comments made by the Pentagon towards Moscow. So, who is in control: Obama or the generals?

The two leaders held an earnest 35-minute face-to-face discussion on the opening day of the G20 conference in Antalya, Turkey. The gathering of the world’s top 20 economic nations was dominated by the massive terror attack in Paris two days earlier, which claimed at least 129 lives and hundreds more wounded.

Obama’s meeting with Putin – their first since Russia launched its military intervention in Syria nearly seven weeks ago – was described by the White House as “constructive”.

The American president even appeared to welcome Russian airstrikes against terror groups fighting the Syrian government, most prominently Islamic State (IS) jihadists, also known as ISIL.

Is Turkey Starting a Proxi-War for NATO?

It is clear, Turkey hosting the recent G20 meeting and subscribing to the east-west ‘coalition’ of fighting the ISIS / DAESH / Al Qaeda terror, was a loosely disguised farce.

Did Turkey just provoke a proxi-war on behalf of NATO against Russia? – Turkey knew very well that the Russian SU-24 fighter jet was inside Syria’s borders and that even as it may have been close to Turkey it was no threat for Turkey. Russia’s mission was clear to all the 19 nations which attended the G20 meeting some 10 days ago in Antalya, Turkey, when the entire group unanimously decided to cooperate in fighting the Islamic State (IS – or Daesh, according to its Arabic acronym).

Turkey Shoots Down More Than Just a Russian Jet

It is only a matter of time before the rhetorical shell game conducted by the terrorist sponsors comes unstuck.

Turkey’s shooting down of a Russian fighter jet this week was likely aimed at a bigger political target – to deal a blow to the proposal of a grand anti-terror coalition between the West and Russia for fighting the Islamic State extremist network in Syria.

Such a coalition might seem reasonable, even desirable, to most people. But it is profoundly unacceptable, tacitly, to Washington because it would further expose the criminal nature of the Western-sponsored regime-change operation in Syria.

Washington and its allies do not want Russia to participate in an effective military coalition that would accelerate the destruction of the mercenary terror army that the Western powers have covertly invested in. In that regard, French President Francois Hollande seems to have momentarily lost the devious plot by proposing such an alliance with Russia.

Footage Reveals Who Shot Down Russian Rescue Helicopter at Syrian Border – And It Looks Pretty Bad

Footage provided by the FSA purportedly shows Syrian rebels using a U.S.-made TOW missile to finish off a rescue helicopter sent to secure pilots ejected from a downed Russian Su-24 fighter jet. While Russian fighter pilots descended by parachute from a plummeted Su-24, footage allegedly shows Syrian rebels shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ and trying to kill them in the air – a violation of the Geneva conventions.

Syrian insurgents reportedly blew up the chopper using US-supplied arms, killing one Russian soldier involved in the rescue mission.

The helicopter was searching for the two pilots from the Russian bomber downed by Turkey after it flew close to its border with Syria.

Video footage claims to show members of the Free Syrian Army, who are part-funded and trained by the US and Turkey, hitting the helicopter with a US-made TOW anti-tank missile.

The world's nerves will be jangling at the claimed use of a US weapon directly against Russia.

Russia-China Relations and the Downing of Russia’s Jet Fighter by Turkey

The downing of a Russian jet fighter over Syria’s airspace was undertaken by Turkey in consultation with Washington and Brussels. Turkey did not take this decision without getting the greenlight from the Pentagon.

Is this an act of revenge against Russia for bombing the US-sponsored Islamic State in Syria?

The unspoken truth is that Russia is undermining US-NATO’s ground operations inside Syria. The latter are made up of various Al Qaeda affiliated formations which de facto constitute the foot-soldiers of the Western alliance. These ISIS and Al Nusrah rebel forces are in turn led by intelligence operatives and Western special forces, many of whom are deployed by private mercenary companies on contract to US-NATO.

The downing of Russia’s plane by Turkey is a clear act of provocation. What is its broader intent?

How will backlash at the diplomatic level? Is military escalation contemplated by Washington?

Israeli Colonel Caught with IS Pants Down

This was definitely not supposed to happen. It seems that an Israeli military man with the rank of colonel was “caught with IS pants down.” By that I mean he was captured amid a gaggle of so-called IS–or Islamic State or ISIS or DAESH depending on your preference–terrorists, by soldiers of the Iraqi army. Under interrogation by the Iraqi intelligence he apparently said a lot regarding the role of Netanyahu’s IDF in supporting IS.

Did NATO Just Attack Russia, Or Was It Climate Change’s Fault?

I began this morning reporting on Britain’s next king saying climate change is partly responsible for Syria’s civil war, and his blaming the refugee crisis and civil war there on drought. In an exclusive interview with Sky News, Prince Charles waxes profoundly over the lost Copenhagen climate accord in 2009, and on far reaching strategies you probably never even dreamed of. Then the news came a Russian SU24 fighter/bomber had been shot down by Turkey, and the world turned over. As I type this Twitter, Facebook, and the digital media stream is inundated with a foreign policy horror story. All I can see is Vladimir Putin’s face as Jordan’s king spoke with him, and images of Mr. Obama’s “moderates” machine gunning a pilot before his parachute set down. I wonder if the bad climate will be the cause of World War III?

Report says combination of errors led to U.S. bombing of MSF hospital: NYT

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. air strike that destroyed a hospital run by Medecins Sans Frontieres in the northern Afghan city of Kunduz last month resulted from "human errors, failures in procedure and technical malfunctions," the New York Times reported on Tuesday, citing military officials briefed on an internal investigation.

The Oct. 3 attack, condemned by the medical charity as a war crime, killed 30 people and wounded at least 37. The findings of a U.S. military investigation into the incident will be made public on Wednesday, the Pentagon said.

"It's a combination of factors," the Times quoted an unnamed senior Defense Department official as saying, describing the findings in what it said was a 3,000-page investigative file.

PARIS & the City of ‘ISIS’: Major Occult Symbolism, Hypnosis & the Massive Psy-Op Now Underway…

....any time we’re told over and over again that something “has changed the world forever”, we’re best served to be suspicious. In regard to terror attacks, the only other time this mass psychological conditioning has occurred was with 9/11, which probably did change the world forever and which we were repeatedly *told* would change the world forever. Other terror attacks have simply been treated as precisely that: as terror attacks – 7/7, Boston, and others weren’t sold to us as ‘world changing’ or historic, but just as terrorism.

The 13/11 Paris attack seemed pre-packaged from the start as something much more important. This is mass psychological programming we’re witnessing right now; and everyone should pay attention so they can observe how it works.

The mainstream media all over the Western world was on virtual 24-hour Paris coverage for days. In the UK, BBC News 24 reported on virtually nothing else. On Sunday, I watched even the UK’s Channel 4 news do a one-hour news special from Paris, forsaking all other world news. It didn’t show or report on anything new that hadn’t already been reported on the Saturday, but seemed to exist purely to amplify the mass hysteria and sense of historic, world-changing drama.

France and Israël launch a new war in Iraq and Syria

This is a good article with a lot to digest!

On one hand, the French government is mobilising all its media in order to keep its population focused on the attacks of the 13th November. On the other, with Israël, it is launching a new war in Iraq and Syria. The objective is no longer to overthrow the secular Syrian régime, nor to destroy its army, but to create a colonial state straddling the border between Iraq and Syria, to be managed by the Kurds, in order to apply a stranglehold on the Arab states. The dream of an Israeli nation between the Nile and the Euphrates is back.

Presidents Putin and Obama concluded an agreement to destroy the Erdo?an family’s tankers, thereby putting an end to the petrol trafficking. On the same day, and for the first time in eighteen months, the US Central Command bombed the tanker-trucks in Iraq, while the Russian army destroyed a massive number in Syria [3].

A ‘See-No-Evil’ Drone War

The mainstream U.S. news media has failed miserably in holding the U.S. government to account for the killing of civilians in its drone strikes during the 14-year-old “war on terror,” rarely supplying such unpleasant facts even when they become available, writes John Hanrahan.

Nov 24 15:35


The government may declare victory in wars started in foreign lands, but for the people who live in small towns in this land the results are barely distinguishable from defeat. Lives are lost, families destroyed, futures shattered, hopes ruined; all this is the price paid by the people for the "foreign entanglements" we were long ago warned to avoid. The real price of war is paid not just by those who died in it, but by those who are left behind who bury their dead and pay the bills.

And now it may happen again. Having bred a new generation of soldiers far too young to know what their service in war costs their own families, the present administration is trying to start a war of conquest, to barter the surplus population of "useless eaters" for even more wealth and power. And if the leaders obtain that wealth and power they will declare victory, while the people of America who live in towns like the one I grew up in will salve their grief with cheap ribbons and plaques.

Turkey Has Destroyed Russia’s Hope Of Western Cooperation — Paul Craig Roberts

Turkey’s unprovoked shoot-down of a Russian military aircraft over Syria raises interesting questions. It seems unlikely that the Turkish government would commit an act of war against a much more powerful neighbor unless Washington had cleared the attack. Turkey’s government is not very competent, but even the incompetent know better than to put themselves into a position of facing Russia alone.

If the attack was cleared with Washington, was Obama bypassed by the neocons who control his government, or is Obama himself complicit? Clearly the neoconservatives are disturbed by the French president’s call for unity with Russia against ISIL and easily could have used their connections to Turkey to stage an event that Washington can use to prevent cooperation with Russia.

The Russian Plane (shot down by Turkey) Made Two Ten Second Transits of Turkish Territory

This is the official Turkish radar track of the Russian aircraft they shot down, in red. It briefly transited a tiny neck of Turkish land – less than two miles across where the Russian jet passed – twice. I calculate that each “incursion” over Turkish territory would have lasted about 10 seconds, assuming the plane was flying slowly at 600mph. That Turkey shot down the plane for this is madness, and absolutely indefensible. It is fairly obvious from the track that the plane was operating against Turkish sponsored Turkmen rebels inside Syria, and that is why the Turks shot it down.

In the Wake of The Mali Terrorist Attacks: Escalation of U.S. and French Military Interventions in Africa?

U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) leader Army General David Rodriguez continues to maintain that the purpose of Washington’s military policy on the continent is to assist nation-states in their efforts to enhance the security capacity of various governments. AFRICOM identifies its purpose as working with African states in the so-called “war on terrorism.”

Nonetheless, the “war on terrorism” is a by-product of successive failed imperialist interventions from Afghanistan to Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen. The so-called “Islamist extremist” organizations were nurtured, funded and coordinated since the early 1980s when the administration of President Jimmy Carter worked vigorously to overthrow the socialist government in Afghanistan which was supported by the former Soviet Union.

Turkey shoots down RUSSIAN jet for violating its air space: Flaming Su-24 fighter spirals into the ground in Syria where rebels capture one pilot and are hunting the other

Turkish military has shot down a Russian war plane near its border to Syria, Ankara and Moscow confirms.

The Russian Sukhoi Su-24 jet was shot down by Turkish F-16 fighter planes on Tuesday morning after violating the country's air space and ignoring nearly a dozen warnings, army officials said.

However, Russia's Ministry of Defence claims the jet was in Syrian airspace, and was shot down from the ground.

The author underlined the fact that after a series of terrorist attacks in Egypt and France, and the triumphant for Russia G-20 summit in Antalya, in the face of the paralysis of NATO’s forces, the time has come to execute the plans of launching massive strikes on military, infrastructure, energy facilities in Saudi Arabia and Qatar, that were allegedly “cherished for years”.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it as many times as it takes for the naive, largely aloof American public to catch on: the quote excerpted above is the smoking gun when it comes to Washington’s ISIS “strategy.”

American Self-Hatred

The recent revelation that the United States and its mysterious pseudopresident Barack Obama actually finance Middle Eastern terrorists while simultaneously professing to be fighting them creates a painful emotional cramp in the minds and hearts of conscientious American citizens as we reluctantly realize our totally untrustworthy leaders and their insincere doublespeak pose a lethal danger to ourselves and others.

It then becomes impossible to love our country when we know our so-called leaders are lying through their teeth when they tell us they must kill many thousands of innocent people in order to protect our own families. To remain silent about this hypocrisy can only create one thing in our own minds — self hatred, along with a persistent loathing of ourselves and our own cowardly silence that permits these megacrimes against humanity to keep happening.

Britain's war against ISIS: David Cameron wants to launch airstrikes in Syria in TWO WEEKS

DAVID CAMERON is set to unveil his war plans to help eradicate the depraved Islamic State, with MPs expected to vote in the Commons over British airstrikes in Syria within TWO WEEKS.

The Prime Minister is said to be preparing a "comprehensive" seven-point plan for military intervention against the barbaric terror group, including a blueprint for war-torn Syria’s future.

The first UK jets to strike jihadi targets in the war-torn country would begin within hours of a 'yes' vote.

MPs are expected to vote on extending the RAF action to Syria early next month before Parliament breaks up for Christmas on December 17.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What good, subservient little warmongers those writers are at the UK's "Express"!!

This codswallop, which never even begins to ask the questions of how this group ISIS came to be, or who funds, arms, and trains its members, which is the US government and military.

As reported at globalresearch.ca in May of this year:

While the Western mainstream media and even independent gatekeepers like Noam Chomsky for years spread the lie that any suggestion that the United States and NATO were supporting ISIS was a “conspiracy theory,”recently uncovered and declassified documents from the Defense Intelligence Agency have proven the Western press and the likes of Chomsky wrong and, yet again, the so-called “conspiracy theorists” right. This is because, on May 18, Judicial Watch published a selection of recently declassified documents that were obtained from the US Department of Defense and the US State Department as a result of a lawsuit filed against the US government. The lawsuit and most of the documents contained within the release revolved around the Benghazi scandal but a deeper look into the documents dating back to 2012 reveal an even bigger story – that the US and NATO have admitted in their own documents to supporting al-Qaeda and ISIS in Syria and Iraq. Docs Show Al-Qaeda Involvement From Beginning – No Moderates The documents demolish the “official story” of Western governments promoted from the beginning of the Syrian crisis until the present day – that the “rebellion” was organic, grassroots, and made up of moderates and freedom-loving democracy proponents. The document states unequivocally that “The Salafist [sic] the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria.” It points out that “The West, Gulf countries, and Turkey support the opposition; while Russia, China, and Iran support the regime.” Tellingly, the report then states that “AQI supported the Syrian opposition from the beginning, both ideologically and through the media . . .” Indeed, the documents clearly admit that the crisis unfolding in Syria was never a moderate rebellion fighting for democracy, it was made up of fighters from the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda (al-Qaeda In Iraq/Al-Nusra Front) from the very beginning. US, Turkey, NATO Supporting ISIS and al-Qaeda – Supporting the Creation of Buffer Zones The document continues in its revelations by stating that: Opposition forces are trying to control the eastern areas (Hasaka and Der Zor), adjacent to the western Iraqi provinces (Mosul and Anbar), in addition to neighboring Turkish borders. Western countries, the Gulf states and Turkey are supporting these efforts. This hypothesis is most likely in accordance with the data from recent events, which will help prepare safe havens under international sheltering, similar to what transpired in Libya when Benghazi was chosen as the command center of the temporary government. “Opposition forces,” of course, are al-Qaeda, al-Nusra Front, and ISIS, as mentioned and defined earlier by the DIA document. Thus, any questions of whether or not the US and its NATO/GCC allies have been supporting jihadists and terrorists, should be answered with the admissions made within these pages. If al-Qaeda/ISIS = the “opposition,” then the US support for the “opposition” = US support for al-Qaeda/ISIS.

This copy must be written for the British equivalent to the US's "common core" graduates, who have no capability for critical thinking whatsoever, and when instructed to simply follow orders, they obey.

Obama Dropped Leaflets to Give ISIS 45 Min Warning Before Bombing

The leaflets, which fluttered to the ground about 45 minutes before the strikes, simply said: "Get out of your trucks now, and run away from them. Warning: airstrikes are coming. Oil trucks will be destroyed. Get away from your oil trucks immediately. Do not risk your life."

"We combine these leaflet drops with very low altitude passes of some of our attack aviation, which sends a very powerful message," the colonel added.

American-allied nations are secretly helping ISIS to grow - US Colonel Ann Wright

The US invasion of Iraq in 2003 came with many warnings that it would lead to a dire consequences for the whole region. A decade later, and the brutal jihadists from ISIS are dominating the north of the devastated country. Now, the US is again mulling the possibility of sending its army to Iraq once more - but would that actually help solve the issue? From where does the money come for the Islamic State? Is America obliged to save Iraq after what it's done to that nation? We ask these questions to American Colonel and former diplomat Ann Wright on Sophie&Co today.

Former Drone Operators Say They Were “Horrified” By Cruelty of Assassination Program

U.S. DRONE OPERATORS are inflicting heavy civilian casualties and have developed an institutional culture callous to the death of children and other innocents, four former operators said at a press briefing today in New York.

The killings, part of the Obama administration’s targeted assassination program, are aiding terrorist recruitment and thus undermining the program’s goal of eliminating such fighters, the veterans added. Drone operators refer to children as “fun-size terrorists” and liken killing them to “cutting the grass before it grows too long,” said one of the operators, Michael Haas, a former senior airman in the Air Force. Haas also described widespread drug and alcohol abuse, further stating that some operators had flown missions while impaired.

US, French Aircraft Carriers Rush Toward Syrian Coast To Find Numerous Russian Warships Already There

Two weeks ago, on November 5, and one week before the Paris terrorist attack, we reported that somewhat unexpectedly, France had dispatched its only aircraft carrier, the Charles de Gaulle, to "the eastern Mediterranean for operations against Isis in both Syria and Iraq."

It was unclear just what these pre-emptive operations would be and why France is getting so dramatically involved in the campaign against ISIS. Not knowing the dramatic attack that was about to unfold (whose false flag origins have been quickly ignored as nobody has yet explained why a fake Syrian passport was found next to the suicide bomber), we speculated that this move had to do with the departure of the CVN-71 Theodore Roosevelt which had left the Persian Gulf region a month ago, leaving the entire 5th Naval Fleet without a US carrier presence for the first time in a decade.

PBS NewsHour, a daily US television news program shown on the US Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), used footage of Russian airstrikes against ISIL targets, claiming that they were US airstrikes, an Information Clearing House article revealed.

Earlier this week, the US government said it would intensify anti-ISIL airstrikes and bomb the terrorist organization's oil infrastructure, which is ISIL's primary source of income.

After that, on November 16, the US military said it destroyed 116 trucks carrying illegal oil in ISIL-controlled territories.

"On Monday, 295 trucks were in the area, and more than a third of them were destroyed, United States officials said. The A-10s dropped two dozen 500-pound bombs and conducted strafing runs with 30-millimeter Gatling guns. The AC-130s attacked with 30-millimeter Gatling guns and 105-millimeter cannons," the New York Times colorfully described the US military operation that allegedly took place on November 16.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the "alleged reporters" at PBS are no better than the rest of the corporate whorespondents when it comes to lying through their teeth to the American people.

Whatever shred of credibility PBS may have had in the past is completely gone, as of this incident.

This outlet can no more be trusted to tell anything approximating the truth than can the rest of their fellow and sister presstitutes, shilling desperately to support any and all government narratives they are told to, which have no basis in fact.

79R (recruiter)
79S (career counselor)

During a time when the U.S. Army has been reducing its troop-strength, this announcement is suspect to me.

News that French citizens have been volunteering for the military since the Paris attacks may be revealing our hand in the game. The only thing missing now is a massive U.S. false-flag to whip young, unemployed people into a patriotic fervor. This could be the plan 'A' before having to resort to a military draft.

This is Why Putin Intervened in Syria

On this video you will see some very large explosions. I have no doubt we are seeing small 1-10 kiloton surface and subsurface bursts. These aren't conventional.These aren't ammo dumps or fuel air munitions. Very classic and very dirty,mushroom cloud and all. They may have used tactical nukes in Yemen also. WW3 has been going full bore for 15 years and it is accelerating.
Putin knows that Russia is on the list for takeover and puppetizing so their vast resources can be stolen. Israel made an error due to hubris and Vladimir Putin knew he had to do something. In 2013 the Russian and Chinese Navies stood in the way of a US or Israeli attack on Syria. Somebody may have fired cruise missiles at Syria that never got past those 2 Navies.
Since then everybody has been training and exercising and moving their militaries around like chess pieces. Well the Russians anyway. The US seems to be playing checkers or maybe tiddeley winks.

The Death Of John Kennedy

UPDATE: Numerous witnesses had reported a large obvious exit wound in the back of Kennedy's head, consistent with the reports of a gunshot from the Grassy Knoll. The Warren Commission dismissed the exit wound and reports of a shooter on the Grassy Knoll and published in their report photographs of the back of Kennedy's head that showed no damage. Now it has been revealed that the
Warren Commission did not publish the actual autopsy photos but substituted photos taken after morticians had reconstructed Kennedy's head an anticipation of a possible open casket viewing prior to the funeral
, as had been done with Lincoln. Although described as a mix-up, the simplest explanation is deliberate deception by the Warren Commission.

Poison DUst: Health Consequences of Depleted Uranium Home and Abroad [Full Film]

Poison DUst: Health Consequences of Depleted Uranium Home and Abroad tells the story of young soldiers who thought they came home safely from the war, but didn't. Of a veteran's young daughter whose birth defect is strikingly similar to birth defects suffered by many Iraqi children. Of thousands of young vets who are suffering from the symptoms of uranium poisoning, and the thousands more who are likely to find themselves with these ailments in the years to come. Of a government unwilling to admit there might be a problem here. Filmmaker Sue Harris skillfully weaves the stories of these young veterans with scientific explanations of the nature of "DU" and its dangers, including interviews with former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, New York Daily News reporter Juan Gonzalez, noted physicist Michio Kaku, Dr. Rosalie Bertell, Dr. Helen Caldicott and Major Doug Rokke- the former U.S. Army DU Project head. Every American who cares about our troops should watch this film. Everyone who cares about the innocent civilians who live in the countries where these weapons are used should watch this film. And everyone who cares about the hatred of Americans that may result from the effects of our government's actions in using these weapons, should watch this film. Is there a cover-up?

Unreported Crimes against Humanity: More Than 800 Women and Children Have Died in Yemen, and No One Has Food

Yemen’s humanitarian and human rights catastrophe continues to worsen, according to new UN figures which put the number of killed since late March at more than 5,700.

Speaking to reporters in Cairo by videoconference, the UN’s humanitarian coordinator for Yemen Johannes Van Der Klauww said that 830 of the dead were women and children. UN officials had earlier put the total number of civilians killed at more than 2,600.

As the death toll in the conflict pitting Saudi-led coalition forces against Shia Houthi rebels and their allies continues to rise, humanitarian conditions have only grown more dire, said the coordinator. 21.2 million people in the country – 82 percent of its entire population – are in need of some sort of humanitarian assistance.

Webmaster's Commentary:

I mean, it is your tax dollars at work, making sure the people of Yemen are still getting bombed and starved by the Saudi Military. Because that is who is paying for this enabling of war crimes, folks: it's you.

John McCain calls for 10,000 US ground troops in Syria

The Republican former presidential candidate said the IS group posed “a direct threat” to the United States that could be dealt a knock-out blow with a ground deployment in Syria.

“Ground troops [means] about 10,000 Americans with a coalition of Arab countries, hopefully NATO countries, maybe even France, where we could go in on the ground with sufficient air support to take out ISIS,” McCain said, using another acronym for the Islamic State militants. “They are not invincible, there are not unbeatable.”

“I have great respect for President [François] Hollande, but I firmly disagree with an alliance with The Russians,” he said. “Bashar al-Assad, who’s been sponsored by [Russian President] Vladimir Putin, is the guy that killed thousands with chemical weapons. He’s a war criminal.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You have to feel a more than a little sorry for John McCain these days; not only has the man lost his reality licence; he has also lied to the American public way too many times to believed. And here is the truth of the business , as reported at WRH.com:

The official story is that the White House is certain that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against women and children near Damascus on August 21st. The White House is very certain of this, just as certain as they were that Saddam Hussein has nuclear weapons. And because the White House is certain that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against women and children near Damascus, this grants the United States a right to invade Syria. I wouldn't be too sure. So did Assad gas his own people with a chemical weapon? The answer is obviously that he did not. What does he gain from doing so? Unlike the women and children of Waco, who were proving to be a huge embarrassment to the FBI and BATF (not to mention the White House), the women and children supposedly gassed near Damascus were not a threat to Assad. Had Assad really decided to use chemical weapons, he would have targeted the hired mercenary army trying to oust him. Back in January, emails leaked from a British defense company, Britam, revealed a plan already in place and approved by the White House to give chemical weapons to the hired mercenaries, to use on civilians, in order to frame Assad and thus justify a direct US intervention, as the covert attempt at an overthrow was, after nearly three years, starting to lose badly. So we know this plan was in process months ago. Here is the final point. Assad had been requesting, for months, for a special United Nations Chemical Weapons investigation team to come to Syria to check out earlier allegations that his government had used chemical weapons. The United Nations finally agreed. So why would Assad be so stupid as to carry out a chemical weapons attack on women and children the very day the UN chemical weapons inspectors arrive, just miles from where they are staying? and the answer is, Assad would not be that stupid. This chemical attack was carried out by the hired mercenaries to frame on Assad, and women and children were targeted to maximize the shock value for propaganda purposes. The US government has decided to conquer Syria. and this lie about chemical weapons is just a repeat of the lies told about Saddam's nuclear weapons, to cover over naked aggression with a thin veneer of "Hey, we are going in to help those people." But again, by launching a war into Syria, the US will murder far more Syrians (and young Americans) than this chemical weapon was reported to have done.

WorldNetDaily Pundit: 'Bomb Mecca Off The Face Of The Earth'

WorldNetDaily columnist Burt Prelutsky writes today that he has an ingenious but “politically incorrect suggestion” of how to defeat ISIS, namely that the U.S. “bomb Mecca off the face of the earth, not concerning ourselves in the least with collateral damage, letting the Muslims know once and for all that our God is far more powerful and, yes, vengeful than their own puny deity.”

According to Prelutsky, it’s time to realize that Muslims are “savages” and there’s no way we “can re-educate Muslims or show them a better way to live.”

“I, for one, am sick and tired of seeing the Islamic bullies demand our lunch money and, like a bunch of scrawny wimps afraid of our own shadow, we hand it over,” he writes. “What’s even more appalling, we then pretend we did it because we’re good guys who realized that they’re human beings just like us, and who just happen to be a little bit hungrier than we are.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Burt Prelutsky: this is a time for this government and its military to make smart choices about Middle Eastern policy, not knee-jerk, ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid ones; and what you propose definitely falls into those categories, sir.

I understand that you characterize yourself as a "
Jewish Conservative"; but how in heaven's name can a true conservative advocate religious genocide?!? Sorry; I just don't get it.

And do you not understand that what you propose will utterly guarantee that religious sites from around the world, including those in Israel, will get obliterated in retaliation?!? There will be a point past which the IDF will not be able to contain the wrath which will follow.

The violence in the Middle East, and its blow back, can be sourced to American foreign intervention to ultimately enrich private corporations.

In Iraq, it was all about the oil, and selling the oil only in American dollars; in Afghanistan, it was, and is, about the pipelines, protecting the opium poppy trade, and the embarrassment of riches Afghanistan has in minerals.

In Yemen, the US government enables a bloodthirsty and ruthless Saudi government to destroy the infrastructure (including hospitals and schools) to put back the US installed dictator Al-Hadi; what the Yemeni people want is simply a chance to determine their own destiny. But apparently, for someone like you, this goal should be made continuously unobtainable.

The US extrajudicial assassinations in the Middle East are murdering and maiming women, children, the medically fragile elderly, and no one in this country seems to give a damn.

The bottom line, sir, is this country's military kills and maims, with impunity, to augment American companies' bottom line: it is just that simple.

And the fastest damned way I can think of to get any terrorism to stop effecting Americans, and American assets overseas, is to stop mucking about with other peoples' countries to expropriate resources to which the US government has absolutely no moral right.

I would strongly suggest, sir, that how one defines the word "savages" perhaps appies much closer to home.

And one last comment: on your statement that we need let the Muslims "...know once and for all that our God is far more powerful and, yes, vengeful than their own puny deity.” Does God really want "vengeance", or is it really just you, masquerading behind the facade of the Judeo-Christian religion?

And in what I can only describe as your state of pathological bloodlust against Muslims, you must fantasize obsessively about the American military being used as "the machine of the gods (or God) to bring this vengeance about, which could very well result in a catastrophic world war.

So this is the outcome you want?!? Well, Mr. Prelutsky, here's your rifle...here's your parachute, and we will inform Saudi Arabia that you are on your way to kick their collective keisters all by yourself.

PoppyLeaks, The Story of Bush 41 the Establishment Won’t Publish

With the end of the old Communist system, it seemed that free speech and a diversity of voices would flourish behind the former Iron Curtain. That certainly hasn’t happened in Russia.

Even more troubling, though, is how the corporate media in the United States repeatedly fails to uncover and report the truth about recent American history.

Consider the latest development: the embarrassingly transparent cover-up of George H.W. Bush’s life in his new “authorized biography,” which we wrote about previously. We noted how that book was a witting fantasy because of what it left out. Imagine a book about Richard Nixon’s life that leaves out Watergate.

Michael Rivero: Paris, Fukushima and Crimes Against Humanity

The situation in Paris is not all that different from other events that we have been dealing with for much longer. The same people telling lies and deceiving the masses with propaganda to push whatever agenda the elite deem necessary.

I sat down with Michael Rivero from What Really Happened to discuss some of the more serious situations that are currently unfolding. One situation happened on Friday 13 in Paris and the other has been an ongoing global nightmare that, today, gets very little attention and very little coverage.

Someone Wants War with Russia...Victoria Nuland is not alone

Something very odd is going on in Washington. I recently attended and spoke at a conference in Washington on “realism and restraint” as a broad formula to reform U.S. foreign policy. Most presentations reflected that agenda more-or-less but oddly one of the speakers said that it was necessary for the United States to mark its place in the world while “carrying a big stick” while another panelist asserted that it was a core mission of the American people to “help other countries striving to be free.” Both were referring to how the U.S. should comport itself vis-à-vis Russia and one had to suspect that they had wandered into the auditorium by mistake, intending instead to visit the nearby American Enterprise Institute.

"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits." -- Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain

US Government Still Silent on American Journalist Murdered for Exposing Turkey’s ISIS Ties

Wow. If this was an ISIS propaganda video, the American government would be exploiting it to the hilt in every mainstream media outlet across the country… but when a Western ally kills an American journalist for uncovering ties between that ally and ISIS… crickets.

BEX Alert!!! - "Russian campaign in Syria doomed to fail: Pentagon chief"

US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter says Russia’s military campaign against Daesh (ISIL) terrorists in Syria is “deeply mistaken and doomed to fail.”

“The Russians got off on the wrong foot in this,” Carter said Thursday during an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”.

“They started out with a strategy that was deeply mistaken and doomed to fail. That was a strategy not to fight ISIL which they said they were going to do. That’s not what they did.”

Carter said Russia needs to change its strategy in the Arab country and opt for a future in Syria where President Bashar al-Assad is not in power.

"If the Russians change their strategy and work on a political transition in which Assad goes and the structures of government in Syria are sustained,” he said.

“If they get on the right foot, then… there’s a possibility they will contribute in a positive way to this campaign,” Carter added.

WORLD WAR 3 FOR DUMMIES - A Step-by-Step Guide to Understanding the Present World Situation

Powerful elites and influential think tanks forecast a coming period of American aggression. Zbigniew Brzezinski speaks for the Globalist faction of the western PRC (Predatory Ruling Class) in 'The Grand Chessboard', a book in which he openly advocates for bolder American action in dominating the Eurasian land mass.

During this same period, the 'neo-conservative' faction of the PRC, represented by people like Robert Kagan, William Kristol, Paul Wolfowitz and Dick Cheney, begin agitating for America to overthrow any government in the Middle East that stands in the way of Israel's domination of the region. To that end, Kagan and Kristol had founded a group called PNAC (Project for the New American Century).

Mass murder, as that which just occurred in Paris, is always distressing, but that does not mean we should stop thinking.

Isn’t it rather remarkable that President Hollande, immediately after the event, declared ISIS responsible? How did he know that? And if he was aware of a serious threat from ISIS, why did he not take serious measures in advance?
