Pentagon Concludes America Is Not Safe Unless It Conquers The World. US Plans War against Russia.

The document announces a shift in focus from terrorists to “state actors” that “are challenging international norms.” It is important to understand what these words mean. Governments that challenge international norms are sovereign countries that pursue policies independently of Washington’s policies. These “revisionist states” are threats, not because they plan to attack the US, which the Pentagon admits neither Russia nor China intend, but because they are independent.

Be sure to grasp the point: The threat is the existence of sovereign states, whose independence of action makes them “revisionist states.” In other words, their independence is out of step with the neoconservative Uni-Power doctrine that declares independent action to be the right of Washington alone. Washington’s History-given hegemony precludes any other country being independent in its actions. By definition, a country with a foreign policy independent of Washington is a threat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get this straight: instead of attempting to negotiate, like reasonable adults in the room would do, the Pentagon wants...to wage war with Russia and China?!? And saying this, in this report, PLUBLICLY?!?

A short memo to the Pentagon: have you all gone collectively barking mad, to believe that a war against Russia could be effectively fought and won at this point, when the American military doesn't have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a CONVENTIONAL war against Russia?

Have you collectively drunk the Koolaid, that the over-priced, under-performing, behind-schedule weaponry you have purchased will actually work for our men and women in uniform, who are going to need to rely on those weapons to actually work?!?

I would strongly caution all of you to reconsider this course of action. The unintended consequences of such an attack may well be horrific... and irreversible.

U.S. Military Makes Monumental Shift To Hollowpoint Pistol Ammunition

The stunning announcement was made at the U.S Army’s Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey yesterday during the military’s two-day “industry day” for the Modular Handgun System (MHS), which will conclude today.

A military lawyer who made a presentation during the Industry Day noted that the United States is not a signatory to the Hague Conventions which outlawed the use of “dum-dum” and expanding bullets more than a century ago. It is the military’s position that the shift to jacketed hollowpoint (JHP) ammunition, which more efficiently transfers energy to the target and which presents much less of a risk of over-penetration, is more humane and less of a risk to innocent civilians downrange in modern combat where there are often no clear front lines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why, and why now?!? This development is very alarming.

Secret Document Shows CIA Reaction to Finding No WMD in Iraq

The National Security Archive has posted several newly available documents Monday, one of them an account by Charles Duelfer of the search he led in Iraq for weapons of mass destruction, with a staff of 1,700 and the resources of the U.S. military. Duelfer was appointed by CIA Director George Tenet to lead a massive search after an earlier massive search led by David Kay had determined that there were no WMD stockpiles in Iraq. Duelfer went to work in January 2004, to find nothing for a second time, on behalf of people who had launched a war knowing full well that their own statements about WMDs were not true.

More Than 2,800 People Are Dead in Yemen, So Why Is the Media Silent?

In the summer of 2014, our screens were inundated with videos of the carnage from the streets of Gaza. The European media was outraged, and the sense of moral urgency was amplified across social media. Similar outrage greeted the destruction of UNESCO heritage sites in both Iraq and Syria with the condemnation of Islamic State’s barbarism reaching a crescendo when it overtook Syria’s majestic city of Palmyra.

Pentagon Concludes America Not Safe Unless It Conquers The World — Paul Craig Roberts

The Pentagon has released its “National Military Strategy of the United States of America 2015,” June 2015.

The document announces a shift in focus from terrorists to “state actors” that “are challenging international norms.” It is important to understand what these words mean. Governments that challenge international norms are sovereign countries that pursue policies independently of Washington’s policies. These “revisionist states” are threats, not because they plan to attack the US, which the Pentagon admits neither Russia nor China intend, but because they are independent. In other words, the norm is dependence on Washington.

The Lincoln controversy…

As Thomas DiLorenzo and a number of non-court historians have conclusively established, Lincoln did not invade the Confederacy in order to free the slaves. The Emancipation Proclamation did not occur until 1863 when opposition in the North to the war was rising despite Lincoln’s police state measures to silence opponents and newspapers. The Emancipation Proclamation was a war measure issued under Lincoln’s war powers. The proclamation provided for the emancipated slaves to be enrolled in the Union army replenishing its losses. It was also hoped that the proclamation would spread slave revolts in the South while southern white men were away at war and draw soldiers away from the fronts in order to protect their women and children. The intent was to hasten the defeat of the South before political opposition to Lincoln in the North grew stronger.

No, the F-35 Can’t Fight at Long Range, Either

By now the Pentagon should be well aware of the JSF’s shortcomings. The F-35’s limited weaponry was one of the major problems that a controversial simulation highlighted back in 2008.

In the Pacific Vision war game, which the California think-tank RAND conducted on behalf of the Air Force, F-22s and F-35s lost a simulated aerial battle over the Taiwan Strait.

Two dozen Chinese J-11 fighters brought nearly 250 long-range missiles to the mock fight. The same number of F-35s carried fewer than 100 AIM-120s. Beijing’s jets easily overwhelmed the Americans. And the J-11 isn’t even China’s best fighter.

With limited sensors, compromised stealth, not enough energy and too few weapons, the F-35 is probably already outclassed in a long-range fight. Never mind merely staying out of short-range dogfights. America’s new stealth fighter should probably avoid aerial duels at any distance.

US Senator Urges to 'Meet With Force' Crimean Reunification With Russia

A US Senator, attending the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly session in Helsinki, accused Russia of "violating the territorial integrity of an OSCE member state" and called for the use of force "to end the Russian aggression against Ukraine", US media reported Tuesday.

In an interview with the Russian service of Voice of America, Senator Roger Wicker described Crimea’s reunification with Russia as “aggression by Moscow” and “annexation by a powerful state” of the territory of another country, which is a member of the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Roger, if you really feel that way about it... Here's your rifle. Here's your parachute. We ran out of the desert camo but here's a bright da-glo orange jumpsuit from the CIA's torture centers. Watch your head climbing into that transport aircraft, and we will call Moscow and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But We The People remember the lies about stolen incubators that tricked us into the first invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember how only a year ago you tried to trick us into war with Syria with more lies about poison gas.

We The People remember how there weren't really torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin or a Spanish mine in Havana Harbor, but how there really WERE weapons on board the Lusitania.

In short, We The People remember all the lies, frauds, and deceptions used to trick us into wars of conquest, to send our young people out to die in wars created out of thin air by and for the money-junkies. I think it is time that we have a new rule in America; that those who want war are the first to the front lines. You are all splendidly brave with the lives of other peoples' children. Let's see the true measure of your courage and commitment to war.

You first!

Such a patriot - George W. Bush charged $100,000 for veterans charity speech

Former US president George W. Bush charged $100,000 to speak at a charity fundraising event in 2012 for US military veterans severely injured during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Bush was also provided with a private jet to travel from Dallas to Houston at a cost of $20,000, officials of the Texas-based Helping a Hero charity confirmed to ABC News.

Many in US establishment want war with Russia for economic profits: Grossman

International lawyer Barry Grossman says there are people in the United States who are seeking a military conflict with Russia for their own economic profits.

“There are many people in the US establishment who would be ecstatic about a shooting war with Russia since that would send the US economy and their own profits in to overdrive,” he told Press TV on Thursday.

He added that the latest comments made by US Air Force Secretary Deborah James about considering Russia as the “biggest threat” to American national security is an indication of Washington’s addiction to militarism.

Each is correct.

The Globalists Are Racing to World War III Before the American Sheeple Wake Up

Just look at the unfolding events in 2015 so far with barely half the year over. The Charlie Hebdo attack in January came right after France moved to recognize a sovereign Palestinian state. Clearly Hebdo was a false flag payback that only escalated movement toward more Orwellian tyranny and draconian police state oppression, not only in France but around the world.

Throughout history, debt and war have been constant partners

There is this idea that the Greeks got themselves into this current mess because they paid themselves too much for doing too little. Well, maybe. But it’s not the complete picture. For the Greeks also got themselves into debt for the oldest reason in the book – one might even argue, for the very reason that public debt itself was first invented – to raise and support an army. The state’s need for quick money to raise an army is how industrial-scale money lending comes into business (in the face of the church’s historic opposition to usury). Indeed, in the west, one might even stretch to say that large-scale public debt began as a way to finance military intervention in the Middle East – ie the crusades. And just as rescuing Jerusalem from the Turks was the justification for massive military spending in the middle ages, so the fear of Turkey has been the reason given for recent Greek spending.

Pentagon Army cuts: Citizens to be cut, but illegal aliens recruited?

President Barack Obama and Pentagon officials confirmed on Tuesday their plans to cut 40,000 troops from the United States Army over the course of the next two years, which is expected to affect domestic and foreign Army bases and installation. However, there has been no mention of cuts to the Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI) program initiated to enlist immigrants including those enjoying the benefits of Obama's executive order creating DACA.

Greece – The Triumph of Democracy – the first day of a New Beginning

Congratulations! – With a resounding “OXI” = “No” – with 61% the Greek rejected the troika imposed austerity. They joined a majority of economists worldwide, including from the IMF, who also know that austerity doesn’t help recovery – and certainly doesn’t wipe out debt, the noose around a country’s neck.

But – what does the decisive no-vote mean for the 39% yes-voters? – Do they want more of austerity? – Hardly. Or were they manipulated with fear-mongering by the mostly privately owned western media, which also dominate Greece?– Blackmailed by the threats of Brussels? – Were they afraid of what’s next? – Western presstitute media propaganda for a “yes” vote, spiked with fear, threats and purposeful confusion was horrendous.

Anti-Iran Lobby Steps Up Its Game Before Deadline for P5+1 Talks

The U.S. and Iranian nuclear negotiators have just announced a one week extension of their nuclear talks. If, as expected, there is an agreement next week, it will open a new stage of tension in the process leading to its final formal ratification by all parties. For then, the U.S. Congress will have 30 days to vote the agreement up or down. This vote, forced on an unwilling president by his own party’s Senate members several weeks ago, poses a new threat. For the Israel Lobby, it offers a new opportunity to sabotage the deal.

Mind you, this is the same Congress that pore-approves wars and fast-tracks trade deals because they can't be bothered doing their actual job, but when Israel says jump, they all shout "Ouch, my KNEES!!!"

The Subtly Hostile Message Putin Sent Obama on Independence Day

Saturday was a rather slow news day. The crisis in Greece was on a brief hiatus before the Sunday vote, and most Americans were busy celebrating Independence Day. The only thing that was widely reported was Putin’s 4th of July message to President Obama, in which he offered an olive branch to the US. “In his message of congratulations, the Russian President noted that, despite the differences between the two countries, Russian-American relations remain the most important factor of international stability and security.” The message mostly interpreted as a kind of “Happy 4th of July” to the President.

Judge Nap: Hillary Clinton Approved Arms for Terrorist Enemies of U.S.

The judge wrote today in a Washington Times column that the documents "persuaded me beyond a reasonable doubt and to a moral certainty that Mrs. Clinton provided material assistance to terrorists and lied to Congress."

Napolitano said he looked at transcripts from a Fox News interview with an American arms dealer named Marc Turi, in addition to reviewing emails between Turi, State Department officials and lawmakers.

On Fox Business Network this morning, the judge told Charles Payne that he believes a "conspiracy existed" among President Obama, Mrs. Clinton, congressional leaders and other officials to "get arms shipped to rebels in Syria and Libya."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We all know that Al Qaeda and ISIS are manufactured fronts for covert US action, but for ordinary unenlightened Americans, Al Qaeda and ISIS are the declared enemy in the War on Terror ... which means Hillary Rodham Clinton is guilty of treason, which is legally defined as giving aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war!

Obama Says Freedom Paid for by Members of Military

President Barack Obama thanked members of the military at home and abroad, saying the nation couldn't enjoy the "incredible blessings" in the "greatest country on earth" without their sacrifices and the sacrifices of their families.

"Freedom is not free. It's paid by all the folks who are here today and all the folks who are around the world," Obama told members of the military and military families at an Independence Day celebration on the South Lawn of the White House, after a performance by Bruno Mars.

Obama especially thanked service members who couldn't be with their families because they are stationed overseas. "We want to especially remember them," Obama said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This statement is disingenuous in the extreme.

What true "freedoms" is this President talking about, after the passage of the Homeland Security Act, the Patriot Act, and the NDAA, under which the President, at his command, can have any American arrested and held indefinitely without due process?!?

What "freedoms" can we be certain we have, with 24/7 physical, computer and phone surveillance?!?

What "freedoms" do we have with only two parties to chose from, come Presidential election day, and both presidential candidates have been vetted by the corporations which own them, and those corporations know the candidates THEY have chosen for us to vote on, will deliver?

This a government of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations, not of the people, by the people, and for the people.

And let me make one thing clear: I have the utmost respect for our American military; it is the civilian leadership which puts them into harm's way where there are other ways to resolve a geopolitical issue, that makes me crazy.

And these endless wars and occupations of foreign countries?!? this is not about "protecting the American people", but adding value to the bottom line of numerous American corporations (which own the Presidency and Congress), and protecting what is left of the value of US dollar as the world's reserve currency.

The defense industrial companies and banks make a financial killing during wartime, which is why they love war so much.

And if it is your kid who gets killed or maimed for life...in the eyes of corporate and banking executives, they were just collateral damage and expendable anyway.

The bin Laden death mythology

The White House’s story of how US special forces hunted down and assassinated arch terrorist Osama bin Laden in his secret lair in Pakistan is unraveling.

The official narrative of the bin Laden raid is that for over a decade, US intelligence hunted for the terror chief until a surveillance/torture-enabled breakthrough tracked him to a secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. On 1st May 2011, US Navy Seals entered the compound and assassinated him in a furious firefight.

The operation demonstrated how far the US military intelligence community had come since the days of 9/11, proving how its disparate agencies had now developed a tremendous capacity to share and process often obscure intelligence data, to guide precision covert counter-terror missions.

After killing bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader was buried at sea. When the raid was officially announced, Pakistan, a key US ally in the fight against al-Qaeda, was incensed at the US operation on its own soil.

In the wake of the Tunisia attack, British Prime Minister David Cameron and Defence Secretary Michael Fallon have called for MPs to consider sending British warplanes to target Isis in Syria.

He wants to be sure he can win after Ed Miliband effectively blocked military strikes against the regime of Bashar al-Assad in Syria in 2013. MP's did back British participation against Islamic State militants in Iraq a year later and the RAF has been carrying out strikes there since September, but have, so far, not targeted Syria.

Hillary Clinton Bombshell: Documents Prove She is Guilty of Multiple Felonies

I am convinced as are others who have looked at this -- and FOX aired this in a special Saturday night and several times over the weekend -- that a conspiracy existed between the president, and Mrs. Clinton, and Congressional leaders from both parties in both Houses others in the State Department, the Treasury Department and the Justice Department to get arms shipped to rebels in Syria and in Libya. And some of those rebels are members of organizations that are on the terror list and providing them with material assistance is a felony. So the arms dealers applied for and received permission from State and Treasury lawfully to sell arms to the government of Qatar and they lawfully did so. Qatar then sold, delivered, bartered or gave these arms to the terrorist organizations with the knowledge and consent of Hillary Rodham Clinton when she was Secretary of State.

In the aftermath of the Charleston shooting, the Left seized on the Confederate flag and pushed for banning the Stars and Bars from the grounds of state capitals.

F35 Joint Strike (Out) Fighter: A $1.5 Trillion Lemon

“There will be no gun until [the Joint Strike Fighter’s Block] 3F [software], there is no software to support it now or for the next four-ish years,” an Air Force official affiliated with the F-35 program told the Daily Beast. “Block 3F is slated for release in 2019, but who knows how much that will slip?”

And then there’s the problem with the guns: “Equipped with a gun, Air Force’s F-35A version barely carries enough ammunition. Despite being able to shoot 3,300 rounds per minute, it will only be carrying 180 to 220 rounds.”

You can imagine the crass rebuttal from the war hawks, as they puff on their imported Cohiba cigars, “Who cares. We got paid.”

VA: Worker's response to vet is unacceptable

Iraq war veteran Chris Dorsey figured that no one would believe he had been turned away from a VA clinic when he sought an appointment for post-traumatic stress disorder.

So when he went on Tuesday to another facility, the VA Oakwood, Georgia, Community Based Outpatient Clinic, he flipped on his smartphone camera.

On the video, Dorsey is heard waiting patiently in line for more than 5 minutes. When he reaches the check-in counter, he informs the desk he needs a transfer from the Athens, Georgia, VA system and an appointment.

The response?

"We're not accepting any new patients — not this clinic," the VA employee behind the desk says, without providing any extra information, assistance or follow-on guidance for treatment.

According to Dorsey, his previous experience, getting turned away at the VA clinic in Lawrenceville, Georgia, prompted him to bring his camera to the Oakwood facility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an outrage against our Vets.

As much as I detest wars, because I understand that they are primarily for corporate profit, our Vets need to be taken care of with the best standard of medical care possible, and I mean, Dick Cheney-level care.

This should have NEVER happened to this Vet or any other.

FLASHBACK APRIL - Pentagon’s new military strategy calls for preserving US dominion of the world

The US military needs to remain engaged around the world against both rival states and non-state actors, while nurturing regional allies and promoting American values, declares the Pentagon’s new National Military Strategy 2015.

That the United States is “the world’s strongest nation, enjoying unique advantages in technology, energy, alliances and partnerships, and demographics,” is the underlying assumption in thedocument. “However, these advantages are being challenged.”

Artificial Intelligence Takes the Battlefield: Who Is Really Running Jade Helm 15?

Who is really going to be running Jade Helm 15?

There is more to the story than just training for martial law in states designated as "hostile states" – already a chilling pretext with overtones of greater federal power that could spiral out of control.

But it seems that it is actually A.I. – artificial intelligence – that is at the helm of an enormous and unprecedented military drill. A scary thought for sure... but what does it really mean?

If analysts are correct, it seems that "JADE" is an acronym for a DARPA-developed A.I. quantum computing technology that produces holographic battlefield simulations and will be in charge of the drill in order to "master the human" domain and predict human response.

Millions of children face disease, malnutrition in war-torn Yemen: U.N.

Escalating violence in Yemen has devastated the country's health system and exposed millions of children to the threat of preventable diseases including measles, pneumonia and diarrhea, the United Nations children's agency UNICEF said on Tuesday.

Since fighting intensified in March, many hospitals and health centers have been unable to function properly and vaccination services have been disrupted, according to UNICEF.

Health centers lack the electricity and fuel needed to distribute vaccines and keep them cold, while the fear of conflict is deterring parents from taking their children to receive vaccinations, the U.N. agency said.

As Iran nuclear deadline passes, narrative battle heats up

The real issue holding things up is whether the Americans have the "political will" to make that leap, to agree in writing to its obligations (without 100 caveats) and the courage to face their sprawling bureaucracy whose bread-and-butter is the 'sanctions industry' and the 'Iranian enemy.' says Sharmine Narwani

It’s D-Day in Vienna, and the parties sitting across the negotiating table still haven’t ironed out terms to settle a 12-year standoff over Iran’s nuclear program. Expect this deadline to be missed. And prepare for a lot of hot air to fill its space.

The “hot air” is calculated narrative-spin from a range of players that seek to 1) scuttle a deal, 2) increase pressure/create leverage at the negotiating table, or 3) frame an upcoming agreement in language favorable to one side.

Greece – A Moving Target

Mr. Tsipras lets it be known that if the Greek vote ‘yes’ – for the austerity program, he may resign – that might bring the hegemon’s desired ‘regime change’.

Greece is a moving target. A new bail-out package in the wings? Being negotiated as these lines are going to print? An act of desperation? – Confusing for sure – for the electorate, for observers – but especially for the suffering every-day Greek. Almost hour by hour things are changing.

A last-minute, last ditch negotiation with Brussels for a new bail-out program has apparently been initiated by Athens for two years. No amount has been mentioned – let alone the austerities that Greece would have to accept – or the troika.

Test Pilot Admits the F-35 Can’t Dogfight

A test pilot has some very, very bad news about the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. The pricey new stealth jet can’t turn or climb fast enough to hit an enemy plane during a dogfight or to dodge the enemy’s own gunfire, the pilot reported following a day of mock air battles back in January.

“The F-35 was at a distinct energy disadvantage,” the unnamed pilot wrote in a scathing five-page brief that War Is Boring has obtained. The brief is unclassified but is labeled “for official use only.”

The test pilot’s report is the latest evidence of fundamental problems with the design of the F-35?—?which, at a total program cost of more than a trillion dollars, is history’s most expensive weapon.

US Needs War Every Four Years to Maintain Economic Growth – Belgian Analyst

During 25 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, NATO has not forgotten even for a moment about the idea of an attack on Russia, Belgian political scientist and director of geopolitical research center Euro-Rus Kris Roman said in an exclusive interview with Regnum.
"But they had no pretext. Now, due to the chaos in Ukraine, this opportunity appeared and it is actively developed. The older generation, which had been brought up on the propaganda against the Soviet Union, has already accepted the idea of ??an inevitable conflict with Russia," Roman said.

The Belgian expert believes that with the collapse of the USSR, NATO should have stopped existing, but somehow the alliance "has grown to the size of the Universe because the motto 'The Russians are coming!' is relevant again."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Kris Roman; there are more Americans (even some of us "older coots") who have "stopped drinking the Koolaid" on US government narrative on foreign policy, and do not believe a word the government says to them, or the world, for that matter.

There were things Karl Marx said that are, to be honest, cringeworthy, but his statement that "all wars are economic" was deeply insightful.

'Cash Strapped' VA Forgot It Had $43.1 Million Stashed Away

When not pleading poverty, the Department of Veterans Affairs can be awfully careless with its money.The latest example: In 2011, the VA set $43.1 million aside to produce brochures informing veterans about their benefits, then forgot about it. The money went unspent for three years and now might be lost for good.
An internal audit released earlier this month said, "A breakdown of VA fiscal controls and a lack of oversight led to the parking of funds . .. and the failure to detect and properly use and manage these funds."
That breakdown in fiscal controls seems to be endemic at the VA.
This week, in fact, the VA is telling Congress that it needs $2.6 billion in funds to cover its "unexpectedly" high health costs, and if it doesn't get the money, it might have to start furloughing medical personnel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely UNBELIEVABLE!!

On This Day in History - Archduke Franz Ferdinand assassinated

In an event that is widely acknowledged to have sparked the outbreak of World War I, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, nephew of Emperor Franz Josef and heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, is shot to death along with his wife by a Serbian nationalist in Sarajevo, Bosnia, on this day in 1914.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although the war started between Austria-Hungary and Serbia , it quickly shifted to focus on Germany, whose industrial capacity was seen as an economic threat to Great Britain, who saw the decline of the British Pound as a result of too much emphasis on financial activity to the neglect of agriculture, industrial development, and infrastructure (not unlike the present day United States). Although pre-war Germany had a private central bank, it was heavily restricted and inflation kept to reasonable levels. Under government control, investment was guaranteed to internal economic development, and Germany was seen as a major power. So, in the media of the day, Germany was portrayed as the prime opponent of World War One, and not just defeated, but its industrial base flattened. Following the Treaty of Versailles, Germany was ordered to pay the war costs of all the participating nations, even though Germany had not actually started the war. This amounted to three times the value of all of Germany itself. Germany's private central bank, to whom Germany had gone deeply into debt to pay the costs of the war, broke free of government control, and massive inflation followed (mostly triggered by currency speculators) , permanently trapping the German people in endless debt.

When the Weimar Republic collapsed economically, it opened the door for the National Socialists to take power. Their first financial move was to issue their own state currency which was not borrowed from private central bankers. Freed from having to pay interest on the money in circulation, Germany blossomed and quickly began to rebuild its industry. The media called it "The German Miracle". TIME magazine lionized Hitler for the amazing improvement in life for the German people and the explosion of German industry, and even named him TIME Magazine's Man Of The Year in 1938.

The Delphi Declaration – Paul Craig Roberts

The Delphi Declaration asks the European peoples, especially the Germans, to do the right thing and object to the plunder of Greece by the One Percent.

This appeal to goodwill is likely to fall on deaf ears even though the pillage of Greece will create a precedent that can then be applied to Italy, Spain, France, and even Germany.

European governments, European institutions and the IMF, acting in close alliance, if not under direct control of big international banks and other financial institutions, are now exercising a maximum of pressure, including open threats, blackmailing and a slander and terror communication campaign against the recently elected Greek government and against the Greek people.

Lower US Flag on 4th of July

We need to do a lot more searching, a lot deeper digging, if we're going to root out and destroy the virus that has been killing us for centuries!

For over half a century, I’ve written articles against racism and war. I was shocked and I grieved to see what happened at the Charleston Emanuel Church. Quickly, the call went out: We need to have a “conversation” about race in America! And, almost as quickly: Take down the Confederate flag! But, let’s be very clear: the Confederate flag is NOT a central issue here.

On the 4th of July, when Americans raise their flags as a proud symbol of their “freedom,” will anyone dare to lower their flags to half-mast to commemorate the 60,000 Americans who died in a now-acknowledged “unnecessary” war in Vietnam– let alone the millions of Asians?

Would it be disrespectful even to suggest such a gesture?

Any observer immediately knows the animal ultimately cannot succeed but certainly is frightened by the noise and crashing that it can sustain for a considerable time."

Greece – the Way Out

The Greek people are being penalized for having had the audacity to elect a socialist government – How dare they! – That’s the verdict.

What the troika is doing to Greece these days is the pinnacle of financial terrorism.It is economic waterboarding. It is blackmailing of the first degree. These people are neoliberal fascists, putting the Greek government before a dilemma – ‘either you present us with an acceptable list of austerities, or we will prepare one for you’ – literally. An austerity plan you better accept, lest you may default and being expulsed from the European monetary union and maybe even the EU. That is their threat. That is what Brussels does to a brother; to one of theirs. There is not a shred of solidarity left in this miss-called ‘Union’. This ‘Union’ doesn’t deserve existing.

We restarted the Cold War: The real story about the NATO buildup that the New York Times won’t tell you

As of this week, leaders who know nothing about leading, thinkers who do not think and opinion-shaping poseurs such as Tom Friedman are confident enough in their case to sally forth with it: The Cold War returns, the Russians have restarted it and we must do the right thing—the right thing being to bring NATO troops and materiel up to Russia’s borders, pandering to the paranoia of the former Soviet satellites as if they alone have access to some truth not available to the rest of us.

James Stavridis, the former admiral and NATO commander, quoted in Wednesday’s New York Times: “I don’t think we’re in the Cold War again—yet. I can kind of see it from here.”

I can kind of see it, too, Admiral, and cannot be surprised: NATO has missed the Cold War since the Wall came down and the Pentagon’s creature in Europe commenced a quarter-century of wandering in search of useful enemies. At last, the very best of them is back.

Jewish Groups Lead Push To Crack Open Doors to Syria

Of the four million Syrians who have fled their war-torn country in recent years, at least 135,000 of them require immediate resettlement.

But America has absorbed fewer than 1,000.

For Jewish activists pushing the government to shift gears, that feeble number and the accompanying bottleneck in resettlement of Syrian refugees are troubling reminders of their community’s own experience during World War II.
------
Here it is again. Zionists push for war in Syria, destabilize the country, Jewish (and non-Jewish) war profiteers make money, Israel uses the situation to demand more "aid" money and weapons from the US, and Zionists push to undermine the homogeneity of Western nations by flooding them withe the "refugees" created by Zionist war mongering and covert ops. And the more "diverse" a country becomes, the harder it is to unite the people to resist Zionism and the death of the nation!

American Abrams Battle Tanks Fire in Bulgaria for First Time

American battle tanks will be deployed to Bulgaria this weekend and conduct live-fire exercises across the Black Sea from Russia for the first time.

As part of a maneuver dubbed "Power Shock," the pair of M1A2 Abrams battle tanks are scheduled to be flown from Ramstein Air Base in Germany to the Novo Selo training area in Bulgaria. They'll be joined by 15 U.S. Army soldiers from the "Speed and Power" battalion out of Fort Stewart, Georgia.

The training exercise is part of a series of NATO war games taking place at Europe's eastern borders in the wake of Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region. Earlier this week, Vladimir Putin announced that Russia would add more than 40 new intercontinental ballistic missiles to its nuclear arsenal this year.
