375-pound military drone crashes near Pennsylvania elementary school, report says

Pennsylvania authorities are investigating Thursday as to why an unmanned drone crash landed near a Pennsylvania elementary school.

The Lebanon Daily News identified the 375-pound drone as a RQ-7 Shadow, operated by the Pennsylvania Army National Guard. A military official called Wednesday afternoon's incident a hard landing, but the drone was apparently run over by a car.

Was it 'Worth it?': Canada exits Afghanistan

Mainstream media coverage of the departure of Canada's last troops from Afghanistan has, with very few exceptions, ranged from unquestioning celebration of the Canadian state's work in that country to asking whether the war was worthwhile.

As a general rule, alarms bells should roar when the predominantly white politicians and pundits in imperialist states or their adjuncts ask whether it was "worth it" to kill a lot of people of colour living in a distant, impoverished country for economic and/or political gain. (Recall, for instance, U.S. Ambassador to the UN Madeleine Albright saying "we think the price is worth it" when asked on 60 Minutes about U.S. sanctions killing 500,000 Iraqi children.)

A Century of Deceit: Iraq, the World Wars, Holocaust and Zionist Militarism

In 1961, Benjamin Freedman, a former top-level Zionist, explained how Zionist Jews made a secretive deal with the British leadership during World War I promising to bring America into the war in exchange for Palestine.

The genocidal campaign to subdue and enslave the Iraqi people was the brainchild of the Zionist neoconservative conspirators behind the Project for the New American Century, the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, the American Enterprise Institute and other Zionist-oriented think tanks that dominated the Washington Beltway.

The engine driving the Zionist-led neoconservative war machine is built on falsehoods about the “holocaust”. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the lie of four million deaths at Auschwitz was officially reduced to around one million and claims that several million Jews were killed at the Mauthausen and Majdanek concentration camps have officially been reduced to 74,000 combined.

Policy Chief Nominee Backs Global Spec Ops Network

The Pentagon is moving aggressively to establish a “network” of elite American commandos across the globe as part of its changing strategy to combat al-Qaida cells in places like North Africa.

Senior Defense Department officials on Thursday also told a House panel that had Russia invaded Crimea before the 2014 quadrennial defense review (QDR) was completed, the Obama administration would not have altered plans to place more emphasis on the Asia-Pacific region.

Christine Wormuth, deputy defense undersecretary for strategy, plans and force development, told the House Armed Services Committee that DoD’s 2015 spending plan and the QDR include plans, equipment and dollars to “continue” using “direct action” where needed to target al-Qaeda leaders and operatives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this is NOT about alleged "Al Qaeda" movements in Africa: this is about securing the abundance of natural resources in Africa for the West, and making sure Russia and China are locked out of them.

US nears defense pact with Philippines

In 1991, when the Philippine Congress forced the United States out of the military bases that they had occupied since 1898, they left. But when they did, they went to Leyte and picked up the bronze statues of Gen. Douglas MacArthur and the landing party that had accompanied him on MacArthur’s famed October, 1944 return to drive the Japanese from the islands.

US officials took the statues back to the US. It’s unclear what became of them. According to a caretaker and guide at the MacArthur Landing Memorial Park in the city of Palo, the Philippine government was forced to commission the new group of statues, nearly twice life-size, to replace the ones the Americans had taken home in a fit of national pique.

Pearl Harbor vs. 9/11

When asked the question, “What impresses you more about George W. Bush and Barack Obama, their absence of intelligence or their absence of integrity,” a ready answer comes to mind, and it is clearly not the same for each. But in the case of Bush’s first Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, I think you will have to agree that it’s a tough call.

That was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw in the pages of The New York Times that Rumsfeld had essayed a comparison between the momentous events in Hawaii on December 7, 1941, and in New York City, Arlington, VA, and Shanksville, PA, on September 11, 2001. The one big similarity that he was able to note was that—as the official script reads—we were caught completely by surprise in each case.

Two B-52 and two B-2 bombers perform 20-hour long synchronized attack on Hawaii’s training range

Even if global strike missions are routinely conducted “to ensure the U.S. has a credible capability to respond to a variety of levels of threats and to provide the President a variety of options he may need to protect the nation or its allies and partners,” launching two B-52s and two B-2s in a synchronized strike attack training mission does not happen every day.

Flawed U.S. Policy Led to This New Cold War

The East-West confrontation over Ukraine, which led to Moscow's annexation of Crimea but long predated it, is potentially the worst international crisis in more than 50 years — and the most fateful. A negotiated resolution is possible, but time may be running out.

A new cold war divide is already descending on Europe...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is no "flaw." The United States government WANTS a new cold war. The military want the additional money. The government yearns for those glory days of the 1950s and 1960s when they could keep the American people in a constant state of obedient fear simply by waving "commies" at us all. They have been trying to get back to that happy state ever since the former Soviet Union collapsed.

Bombs for peace: NATO marks 65 year anniversary

NATO Maneuvers with Georgia and Ukraine, Threaten War with Russia

Al Qaeda: Friend or Foe? The US Cannot Have It Both Ways

The US government needs to be confronted with the untenable position of maintaining al Qaeda as America’s enemy while for decades it has been creating, funding and promoting al Qaeda.

What’s it going to be? Friend or foe? Trick or treat? Ally or enemy?

This line of questioning has no greater relevance than the US government’s rather ambiguous relationship to the so called al Qaeda terrorists.

Cross of Iron Speech

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

This world in arms in not spending money alone.

It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.

The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities.

It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population.

It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals.

It is some 50 miles of concrete highway.

We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat.

We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people.

This, I repeat, is the best way of life to be found on the road the world has been taking.

This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.

Exclusive: Ft. Hood Shooter Was In Program For Returning Soldiers In Need Of “Complex Medical Care”

The Fort Hood Herald refers to the Warrior Transitional Brigade as a program that “accepts Soldiers injured in combat, those with chronic medical conditions, those who are seriously ill, those with mental or emotional conditions, and Soldiers injured during training or off duty.”

The soldiers who are moved over to the WTB are in need of serious care.

“When Soldiers require at least six months of complex medical care, their doctors can put in a packet for them to be moved over to the WTB, where the Soldier’s only mission will be to heal and prepare for transition.”

As we have reported, with the tens of thousands of men and women returning home from combat, there are serious mental health issues that these soldiers are facing from PTSD to traumatic brain injuries, etc. These issues are very serious and something the American people must demand are dealt with.

The arms trade treaty is weak and legitimises arms sales

The treaty sets out regulations, but it also says that states recognise “the legitimate political, security, economic and commercial interests… in the international trade in conventional arms.” This is the problem. In a statement to the House of Commons on March 25th, Business Secretary Vince Cable reiterated the government's support for the arms trade. “The UK’s defence industry can make an important contribution to international security, as well as provide economic benefit to the UK. The Government remain committed to supporting the UK’s defence industry and legitimate trade in items controlled for strategic reasons.”

Police cadets in New Mexico trained to have “warrior mentality” and to use more deadly force

The face of evil IMHO! This is why all the police murders of Americans by APD!

The director said he'd rather burn his curriculum than disclose it to the media. NEW MEXICO — All new police cadets will be trained to use more deadly force — not less — thanks to a new curriculum by director of the state’s Law Enforcement Academy. Cadets are being trained by the former Army Colonel to have a “warrior mentality” with a strong emphasis on “Officer Survival.” The cadet program, which has also been shortened by six full weeks, leaves cadets more paranoid and more prone to use deadly force, critics say.

Jack Jones, a retired Army colonel, was granted sole authority by the LEA over the training curriculum given to all of New Mexico’s new recruits. He says the old model was too restrictive with the use of deadly force.

“Evil has come to the state of New Mexico. Evil has come to the Southwest. Evil has come to the United States,” Jones said to the Santa Fe New Mexican.

Palestine, Egypt and Syria: New Lows for Obama’s Failed Middle East Policy

Unfortunately, peace is never as profitable as war. If Obama leaves the Middle East, Russia and China will fill in the gaps, slurping up the profits that would have otherwise gone to U.S. corporations. And if U.S. corporations felt that they were making enough profit at home, they’d politely bow out of the contest, especially since U.S. foreign policy has been one Godzilla-like disaster after another.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the reason that no matter how the American people don't want another war, the US government is slouching toward creating it to satiate the financial lusts of the corporate money junkies who they serve, and whose campaigns they fund.

The A-20B Boston bomber was sent to the Soviet Union by the US for their common fight against Nazi Germany under an allied wartime military equipment program, called Lend-Lease. The plane arrived via a secret route across the northwestern Pacific known as the Alaska-Siberia air road.

The plane crashed in May, 1943 just outside Krasnoyarsk. Its entire crew - Capt. Pyotr Stepanov, navigator Capt. Vasily Kravets, gunner and radio operator Sgt. Maj. Viktor Panov and technician Lt. Garif Shaikhutdinov - died in the crash.

Michael Rivero: All Wars Are Bankers’ Wars!

Many people have a great deal of difficulty comprehending just how many wars are started for no other purpose than to force private central banks onto nations, so Michael Rivero details the history so that people can understand why the US Government is mired in so many wars against so many foreign nations.

The path to true peace on Earth lies in the abolishment of all private central banking everywhere, and a return to the state-issued value-based currencies that allow nations and people to become prosperous.

Venezuela is torn between the destabilising attempts of the right-wing, the limits of the Bolivarian process and the possibility the working class and the popular movements will advance the revolutionary project, but not without tensions and contradictions.

The following is an interview by Valeria Ianni, first published in Spanish by Rebelion, with Franck Gaudichaud, member of the editorial team of Rebelión.org, a doctor of political science and author of several books on Latin America, with a directed research by Michael Löwy on people power and industrial ties under the Allende government in Chile (1970 -1973).

APD Ad Absurdum

Albuquerque has been in the news a lot this weekend, and the focus of these news stories has almost always been wrong. Almost all these stories seem to be about how the latest protests here on Sunday, March 30, over the Albuquerque Police Department's latest killings got way out of hand, or turned into riots, and none of them seem to be at all interested in anything other than the official stories fed by official channels to the media.

I watched firsthand, standing toward the front of a crowd of perhaps a hundred unarmed protesters on the edge of Civic Plaza late Sunday night, as we were almost completely surrounded by literally an entire police force prepared not for a group of dissatisfied citizens but for war.

GOP Aspirant Christie Apologies To Adelson

Halfway through his public address to the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC), a convenient cover event for Sheldon Adelson’s ring-kissing primary, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie uttered a huge Zionist “no no”. He mentioned the “occupied territories”. He uttered a truth. He then rushed over and apologized to Adelson.

In July 2004, while ruling that the wall Israel is building in the West Bank is illegal, the International Court of Justice deemed Israel’s settlement enterprise to be in contravention of international law, and the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem to be under Israeli military occupation.

The time has come for the U.S. to break from its Middle East policies which are designed by its Israeli architects and their American subcontractors.
George Washington warned us: “A passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils”.

Alan Hart: Rosenberg’s rubbishing of BDS misses the point

In an article asserting that the BDS (Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions) Movement is “irrelevant”, M.J. Rosenberg has written that “The solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is two states for two peoples.” The point he misses, perhaps because there has not yet been a formal burial attended by Western leaders and the mainstream media, is that the two-state solution has long been dead. (In truth it was probably never alive in Zionism’s mind).

The most effective way for the BDS Movement to respond to its critics and detractors would be to give priority to spelling out why One State For All, and thus the dismantling and eradication of the Zionist entity, is in the best interests of all – not only Arabs and Jews but all of us, governments and peoples of all faiths and none everywhere.
The point being that if the Zionist state is not dismantled and eradicated it will most likely take the region and quite possibly the world to hell.

US pyromaniacs to ignite all-out war in Europe: Analyst

An analyst says the US is prepared to sacrifice millions of lives for its own selfish strategic interests by pushing Europe into an all-out war with Russia, Press TV reports.

“The US is prepared to plunge Europe into a war with Russia in order for Washington to preserve its hegemony over the transatlantic axis,” Finian Cunningham wrote in a column for the Press TV website.

He said a war would be aimed at preventing Russia and Europe from developing closer trade and political ties and preserving the American dollar as the world's reserve currency.

“I think they are satisfied that we have the capability to use a military option if the Iranians choose to stray off the diplomatic path,” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey said, according to the military news site Defense News. “I think they are satisfied we have the capability. I think they believe we will use it.”

“BDS is irrelevant.” Oh, really?

Rosenberg gives himself a hard time worrying that there would be no more Israel if Israelis had to obey international law and UN resolutions, and return the lands and resources they stole from the Palestinians. It's “an actual country”, he maintains. But I bet he cannot tell us its actual borders.

A quick trip to the BDS movement's website http://www.bdsmovement.net/call will expose Rosenberg's attempt to mislead.

What maddens Zionists most is that they cannot control civil society like they can pull the strings of the spineless political élite. They fear BDS action (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) will derail their precious project for a Greater Israel. So they now sneer at civil society and try to discourage further BDS efforts. This tactic comes across loud and clear in Michael Rosenberg's article 'The Goal Of The BDS Movement Is Dismantling Israel, Not The ’67 Occupation'.

Press Release: The Undying Role of 9/11 Family Members in Calling for an Independent Inquiry into 9/11

Halifax, March 28, 2014 – Yesterday in Parliament Megan Leslie, NDP Deputy Leader and Halifax MP, was blasted by Conservative backbencher James Bezan for a community event that was posted by a constituent on her website.

Bezan was referring to the Halifax stop of a 17-city Canadian tour by architect Richard Gage, leader of 2100 architects and engineers who question the collapses of World Trade Center buildings 1, 2, and 7. Many people do not know that an investigation was resisted by the Bush administration, and that the building collapses were never scientifically investigated.

Following major disasters such as the Titanic, Pearl Harbor, the JFK assassination, and the Challenger tragedy, commissions of inquiry have been appointed within a few days.

In the case of 9/11 no such inquiry was ordered........

How Americans can help world peace

A first step for world peace is for the American people to rein in their reckless government from the international stage and to stop it making misery for so many.

Americans need democratic government like the rest of the world needs rid of Washington's thuggish global policeman.

This may come as a shock to many ordinary Americans who tend to think that their country is already the beacon of democratic light unto the world, bestowing all sorts of benevolence to others. Such delusional "American exceptionalism" has to stop. America is only special in a very negative meaning. It plays a central part in fomenting conflict in almost every scenario we care to look at.

We see this nefarious US role in the never-ending Israeli-Palestinian travesty known as a "peace process". In reality, this process is but a continual green light for the Israeli regime to commit massive violation of international laws against the long-suffering Palestinian people.

The New Nihilism

A new nihilism is starting to appear in the United States. Like the Lost Generation, this malaise proceeds from multiple sources.

First and foremost is the reality of ongoing wars, inevitably leading to a new global war, started with the very weapons that ended the last global war. Having been raised with decades of dire warnings about how nuclear weapons can end the world amid cold-war exhortations to build personal fallout shelters, it should not come as a surprise that most people equate the current military buildup as a prelude to that much predicted end of the world. This is not metaphor; the kids with those brass keys in the silos can really do it. Who wants to work hard to build a future that might vanish in a flash of white light?

Paul Craig Roberts: Pushing Toward The Final War

Obama overthrew the Ukrainian government in order to be able to stuff the country into NATO, throw Russia out of its Black Sea naval base, and put US missile bases in Ukraine on Russia’s border.

Obama, whose government has bullied Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Lebanon, Iran, Honduras, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Venezuela and is now trying to bully Russia, actually declared that “bigger nations cannot simply bully smaller ones.”

The position of the government in Washington and its puppet states (Eastern and Western Europe, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Georgia, Japan) and other allies purchased with bagfuls of money is that Washington’s violation of international law by torturing people, by invading sovereign countries on totally false pretenses, by routinely overthrowing democratically elected governments that do not toe the Washington line is bringing “freedom and democracy to the world.”

Western warmongers getting shot down in flames

But Gordon Duff slipped the hoax story into a long Intel article this weekend for New Eastern Outlook in Moscow where the Russian ministry picked it up. Deploying Manpads to the Jihadis would have been a huge escalation of the Syrian war and would have unleashed these weapons into all the other areas being "destabilized." Any Jihadi having one of these could sell it and be able to retire. And so far they have not shown themselves to be very concerned about negative public opinion.

In that regard, they are ideological soul mates of our own 2-bit warmongers in Congress who have been calling for further escalation in Syria with total disregard that it could set the whole region ablaze. Frankly, at Veterans Today we think that is exactly what their goal is, and why we regard Congress as the most dangerous national security threat we face. And the bite of it all is, we the taxpayers pay them for doing this to us.

Media Bias: Parroting a “New Cold War” which Threatens America

If American media seem filled these days with bellicose, jingoistic, uniform perspectives on a new Cold War, that’s probably because so many news outlets can’t seem to help themselves when it comes to framing new events in the tired terms of the last generation’s ingrained propaganda.

• And Israel ranks 4th in technological capacity in the world.

It’s worse than that though. Far beyond formal foreign aid programs, a respected economist, Dr. Thomas Stauffer, estimated that Israel cost the U.S. about $1.6 trillion between 1973 and 2003 alone.

Why does Israel have a green light to use American tax revenue for military operations, which destroy Palestinian (or Lebanese) roads, water tanks, sewage lines, electrical power plants and police stations, not to mention shops, homes, schools, and lives?

It’s long past time to halt U.S. aid until Israel complies with U.N. resolutions, withdraws from the occupied territories and makes peace.

Dressing Up Aggression as Idealism - Obama’s Sleepwalk Toward War

Does Obama realize that he is leading the US and its puppet states to war with Russia and China, or is Obama being manipulated into this disaster by his neoconservative speech writers and government officials? World War 1 (and World War 2) was the result of the ambitions and mistakes of a very small number of people. Only one head of state was actually involved–the President of France.

In The Genesis of the World War, Harry Elmer Barnes shows that World War 1 was the product of 4 or 5 people. Three stand out: Raymond Poincare, President of France, Sergei Sazonov, Russian Foreign Minister, and Alexander Izvolski, Russian Ambassador to France. Poincare` wanted Alsace-Lorraine from Germany, and the Russians wanted Istanbul and the Bosphorus Strait, which connects the Black Sea to the Mediterranean. They realized that their ambitions required a general European war and worked to produce the desired war.

Obama is walking us towards war. He is just hoping that YOU are asleep!

MH370 kept hidden at top-secret US military base - media reports

According to one of the newest, unlike what Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak backed by his Australian counterpart Tony Abbott is claiming, the plane did not crash into the southern Indian Ocean but was captured. MH370 could have been kidnapped to get to the technical brain-trust on board - 20 Freescale Semiconductor employees travelling to China. Freescale attracted attention because it is a Texas-based technology firm that develops components for hi-tech weapons systems and aircraft navigation among other things.

Syria’s Victory Is Turning Point For Western Global Hegemony

It was in Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh’s 2007 article, “The Redirection: Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?” that prophetically stated (emphasis added):

“To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has coöperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda.”

The Story of PFC John Needham & Iraq War Truth

Marking the eleven year anniversary of the illegal, and immoral invasion of Iraq, you will bare witness to three different pieces of evidence that prove the official narrative to be false. First is the story of PFC John Needham, who witnessed war crimes being committed, and was locked up and tortured by his own command for not partaking in them himself. His story is an example of what happens when we “embrace the dark-side” as Dick Cheney put it in the push for the invasion. Next up is a clip called THE VIDEO THE PENTAGON DOESN’T WANT YOU TO SEE. It exposes the reality of the invasion, from Depleted Uranium to indiscriminate killing of civilians, as well as other crimes; including the rape, murder, and cover-up of PFC LaVena Johnson. Finishing up is a clip called JUST WHO WERE WE FIGHTING IN IRAQ? After hearing it you will ask the same question yourself.

Beyond a Doubt: Our Media War Propaganda and The Film You Almost Didn’t See

This is the story about a film which none of were supposed to see. Not because the film wasn’t up to professional journalistic standards, or that it was of poor quality. It was neither of those. Against the odds and the establishment-owned international media syndicate, award-winning filmmaker and journalist John Pilger reveals one of the most damning indictments of American and British mainstream media. The content of this timeless film is stunning, and show beyond any reasonable doubt, that our media are not only complicit in advancing conflict around the globe, but are actively engaged in pushing it on behalf of those who seek to profit from international conflagrations.

Russia Launches Nuclear-War Drill, Saying It Was Long Scheduled

Russia on Thursday began drilling for nuclear war in a massive, three-day exercise it asserts was planned months ago, Nezavisimaya Gazeta reports.

Roughly 10,000 military personnel were expected to participate in the maneuvers, which are intended as practice for a large-scale nuclear offensive, according to the Russian newspaper. Exercise participants were set to position and prepare missile-firing units for launch, and to practice various administrative and support functions for the operation, said Col. Igor Yegorov, a Russian Defense Ministry spokesman for the strategic missile services.

Troops were expected to conduct surveillance for chemical, biological and radiological threats, as well as to identify and stop conventional efforts to thwart the offensive.

Since at least as early as the eighteen century, classical liberalism, and its modern variant libertarianism, have opposed warfare except in cases of obvious self-defense. We see this anti-war position clearly among the anti-federalists of eighteenth-century America (who opposed all standing armies) and more famously within George Washington’s Farewell Address. Thomas Jefferson frequently inveighed against war, although in moves typical for Jefferson, he acted against his own professed ideology on a number of occasions.

Lies About Rwanda Mean More Wars If Not Corrected

Urge the ending of war these days and you'll very quickly hear two words: "Hitler" and "Rwanda." While World War II killed some 70 million people, it's the killing of some 6 to 10 million (depending on who's included) that carries the name Holocaust. Never mind that the United States and its allies refused to help those people before the war or to halt the war to save them or to prioritize helping them when the war ended -- or even to refrain from letting the Pentagon hire some of their killers. Never mind that saving the Jews didn't become a purpose for WWII until long after the war was over. Propose eliminating war from the world and your ears will ring with the name that Hillary Clinton calls Vladimir Putin and that John Kerry calls Bashar al Assad.

Turkish Political and Military Leaders ADMIT to Planning False Flag Terror to Justify a War with Syria

As we noted here, Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan had blocked Twitter access to his nation ahead of what was rumored to be a “spectacular” leak before this weekend’s elections. Then this morning, amid a mad scramble, he reportedly (despite the nation’s court ruling the bans illegal) blocked YouTube access. However, by the magic of the interwebs, we have the ‘leaked’ clip and it is clear why he wanted it blocked/banned. As the rough translation explains, it purports to be a conversation between key Turkish military and political leaders discussing what appears to be a false flag attack to launch war with Syria.

Paul Craig Roberts - The Greatest Crisis In Mankind’s History

Dr. Roberts: “That government (in Ukraine) is conducting extraordinary propaganda against Russia, claiming that Russian troops are massed on the border and are going to invade Ukraine. So they are creating this image which helps foment war. Here’s the great danger in all of this....

“What does this do to Putin? Putin has been very low key. He’s been very diplomatic. He sits there and watches this and he says:

“What are these Americans up to? Here they bring a direct strategic threat to Russia, right here in my backyard. They are trying to put Ukraine in Nato so they can put missile bases on the Russian border with Ukraine. They tried to grab Russia’s only warm-water naval base, the port we’ve had since Catherine the Great in the 18th century. Why are they doing this? Why these amazing provocations against Russia?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have been watching the talking heads on the alleged "news channels" pushing for war against Russia, and thinking how well paid these people are to lie to the American public.

Obama, with all of his anti-Russian hubristic bluster and rhetoric, appears to be desperately wanting a war, any war, which will,theoretically, distract the American people from thinking how this administration's decisions, on both foreign and domestic policies, have made them less economically secure, and infinitely more unsafe, in the world of geopolitics.

But this assumption, on the part of the President, is absolutely, pig-headedly, ham-fistedly incorrect, and very dangerous.

The reality, at this point in its history,is that the US military may well not be capable of obtaining a positive outcome in a conventional war against Russia; it does not have the troop strength, the money, or manufacturing to make this happen.

And the President knows, or should know, that this is the case, which is why the military option is so scarily dangerous right now.

So I would like the President, and those around him, to think very very carefully about the outcome they would like to see happen from a war with Russia, which could well go nuclear in a heartbeat; the unforeseen consequences could be both horrific...and irreversible.

“The window for the United States to save the PETRODOLLAR (THERE IS THAT WORD I KEEP HARPING ON IN MY FINANCIAL SERIES) from the scourge of the Iranian sale of oil for gold to the BRIC nations (e.g. Russia, China, India) is rapidly closing. If the Russians are able to invade Ukraine and consolidate their holdings, an invasion of Syria as a precursor to the invasion of Iran, can be seriously challenged by the Russians operating out of Crimea.”

Software problems will set back F-35 joint strike fighter another year – report

Delivery of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter will be more than a year behind schedule due to ongoing software problems, according to a US government report. The delay marks the latest snag in the ongoing saga of the world’s most expensive aircraft.

According to a new Government Accountability Office report, the F-35’s mission management system software needs a vast debugging effort to meet the plane’s various requirements.

“Challenges in development and testing of mission systems software continued through 2013, due largely to delays in software delivery, limited capability in the software when delivered, and the need to fix problems and retest multiple software versions,” the GAO auditors wrote.

Poll: Americans Want Nothing to Do with Ukraine Crisis

A CBS News poll found Tuesday morning that 61% of respondents do not believe the U.S. is obligated to involve itself in the Ukrainian crisis, almost double the 32% who do.

Slightly more (65%) believe the U.S. should not send military aid, compared to only 26% who think it should. The opposition to military aid stretched across party lines, with slightly more Democrats and Independents opposing it.

The numbers are in line with previous public opposition to involvement in foreign conflict, especially the recent civil war in Syria.

US 'Democracy Promotion' Destroys Democracy Overseas

It was almost ten years ago when, before the House International Relations Committee, I objected to the US Government funding NGOs to meddle in the internal affairs of Ukraine. At the time the "Orange Revolution" had forced a regime change in Ukraine with the help of millions of dollars from Washington.

At that time I told the Committee:

We do not know exactly how many millions -- or tens of millions -- of dollars the United States government spent on the presidential election in Ukraine. We do know that much of that money was targeted to assist one particular candidate, and that through a series of cut-out non-governmental organizations (NGOs) -- both American and Ukrainian -- millions of dollars ended up in support of the presidential candidate...

Nile River Dam Threatens War Between Egypt and Ethiopia

When Egypt’s then-president Mohamed Morsi said in June 2013 that “all options” including military intervention, were on the table if Ethiopia continued to develop dams on the Nile River, many dismissed it as posturing. But experts claim Cairo is deadly serious about defending its historic water allotment, and if Ethiopia proceeds with construction of what is set to become Africa’s largest hydroelectric dam, a military strike is not out of the question.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS!

The so-called "clash of civilizations" we read about on the corporate media is really a war between banking systems, with the private central bankers forcing themselves onto the rest of the world, no matter how many millions must die for it. Indeed the constant hatemongering against Muslims lies in a simple fact. Like the ancient Christians (prior to the Knights Templars private banking system) , Muslims forbid usury, or the lending of money at interest. And that is the reason our government and media insist they must be killed or converted. They refuse to submit to currencies issued at interest. They refuse to be debt slaves.

So off to war your children must go, to spill their blood for the money-junkies' gold. We barely survived the last two world wars. In the nuclear/bioweapon age, are the private central bankers willing to risk incinerating the whole planet just to feed their greed?

Apparently so.

This brings us to the current situation in the Ukraine.

We're being dragged into a new Cold War by a puffed-up bullfrog (and I don't mean President Putin)

It’s the one thing they think they know about history – that Britain’s pathetic Neville Chamberlain didn’t stand up to evil Adolf Hitler in 1938 at Munich over Czechoslovakia, so making Hitler believe that he could take over the world. And that the brave Winston Churchill then saved the world.

Almost no part of this legend is true. Even those bits that are true are misleading, with one exception. Hitler was certainly evil. But so was Stalin, the communist mass-murderer who ended up as our main ally in the fight against Hitler.

If we had gone to war to save Czechoslovakia in 1938, we would have been beaten. We had no proper army. Nor did the USA, whose army at that time was about the same size as Portugal’s.

When we later went to war to ‘save’ Poland, we didn’t in fact save it at all, leaving it to be bombed, starved and massacred by Hitler, carved up between Germany and the USSR and later swallowed whole by Stalin. And we were beaten – just not actually invaded.

This new Cold War is not about communism taking over the world. It is more about returning to 19th century balance of power interests, borrowing the phrase John Kerry has used against Putin.

Pushing Western capitalism and NATO towards Russia was sure to touch off the current escalation, and worse may come.

US Military pays salaries to non-existent ghost workers

Last month, John F. Sopko, Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, wrote in his letter to three US commanders in Afghanistan that the US may be unwittingly paying "ghost workers" of the ANP.

Similar issues have already been brought up before. In 2011 SIGAR report claimed that Afghanistan's Interior Ministry wasn't able either to determine the actual number of the ANP personnel, or confirm that it had been paying salaries only to existing workers.

Earlier, in 2007 the Pentagon reported that Iraq’s Interior and Defense ministries had problems with ghost soldiers and police, existed only on paper.

An Attack on Iran is Still on the Pentagon’s Drawing Board. Israel Prepares to Launch “The First Strike”

It is important to analyze these latest threats in a broader context. While Israel is part of a military alliance, it cannot wage a war on Iran on its own. This is something which is known and recognized by military analysts.

An attack on Iran is part of a coordinated operation led by the Pentagon, which has been envisaged since the mid-1990s as part of a strategic “sequencing” of theater operations. During the Clinton administration, US Central Command (USCENTCOM) had formulated “in war theater plans” to invade first Iraq and then Iran.

Here’s another item for the (long) list of spectacular waste in the Pentagon’s budget: a $2.7-billion intelligence program that’s supposed to help Army troops on the ground collect and use intelligence on enemy fighters. It sounds like a good idea, but the thing is, the Army’s Distributed Common Ground System doesn’t actually do that, according to report from Foreign Policy. The article cites an internal assessment of the DCGS’s effectiveness, long requested by Congress but kept under wraps by the Pentagon for eight months. Probably because they didn’t feel like talking about such a spectacular failure.

Although the United States canceled Atlas Vision 2014, which was scheduled to take place in July in the northeastern Russian city of Chelyabinsk, the Pentagon says it will go ahead with plans for a multinational military exercise this summer in Ukraine.

Rapid Trident 2014 is designed to “promote regional stability and security, strengthen partnership capacity and foster trust while improving interoperability between the land forces of Ukraine, and NATO and partner nations,” according to the US forces in Europe website.

But in fact, the British record of Permanent War stretches back much further.

Bill Kristol Calls For Americans to be ‘Awakened and Rallied’ to War

Bill Kristol is not shy about his fetish for war. His latest piece at the neoconservative Weekly Standard borders on self-parody in the way that it openly longs for a return to a time when Americans were eager to send the U.S. military off on unnecessary, imperialistic adventures.

Kristol is frustrated by the “war-weariness” of the nation. He laments the reluctance on the part of the Republican Party to “challenge” “the idol of war-weariness.”

“A war-weary public can be awakened and rallied,” Kristol cheers. “Indeed, events are right now doing the awakening. All that’s needed is the rallying. And the turnaround can be fast.”

"Why of course the people don't want war ... But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ... Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger." - Hermann Goering, German leader, at the Nuremberg Trials after World War II

French lab identifies US soldier's remains after JPAC refuses to investigate

France’s national crime laboratory has positively identified the remains of an U.S. Army soldier missing from World War II after the U.S. Defense Department’s own accounting agency refused to exhume the body and conduct a DNA test.

Army Pvt. 1st Class Lawrence Gordon’s remains were identified Feb. 13, after researchers were able to match mitochondrial DNA to Gordon’s nephews, his family confirmed Monday.

According to military records, Gordon has been missing since Aug. 13, 1944, when he was killed in an M8 armored car that was struck by a German anti-tank shell near Carrouges, France. His remains were first interred in an American cemetery as “unknown,” despite the fact that his bloody wallet was sent home to his family and the man killed next to him was identified.

Against Ukraine War? Obama May Seize Your Assets

Do you, like 56 percent of the US population, believe that the US should “not get too involved” in the Ukraine situation? Do you think that the US administration putting us on a war footing with Russia is a bad idea? Are you concerned that the new, US-backed leaders of Ukraine — not being elected — might lack democratic legitimacy? Are you tempted to speak out against US policy in Ukraine; are you tempted to criticize the new Ukrainian regime?

Be careful what you say. Be careful what you write. President Obama has just given himself the authority to seize your assets.

Ukraine, Syria, Venezuela and beyond: Beware the Wars of March

In the 1930s it was a notorious fact the German government of Adolf Hitler chose the month 0f March ( Ides of Mars), to perpetrate its most daring moves in reasserting the nation as a continental power, culminating in the most deadly war in history.

For example:

March 1933: German federal election brings Hitler to power as chancellor

March 1936: Germany remilitarizes the Rhineland in contravention of the Treaty of Versailles

March 1937: The Third Reich’s Condor Legion bombs and attacks Durango, Spain and the next month bombs Guernica

March 1938: Germany absorbs Austria

Obama and Kerry “are making the mockery of the United states by assailing Russia for violating the integrity of Ukraine with the United States has violated the integrity of nation after nation, nation after nation, including Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya,” Fetzer said.

“Barack Obama has sent military forces to 17 different African nations by himself. Where does that come from? Where that ability to lie with a straight face to the world has emanated?” asked Fetzer, who has written several books on important issues, such as the theoretical foundations of scientific knowledge, computer science, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, and evolution and mentality.

Kremlin: If The US Tries To Hurt Russia's Economy, Russia Will Target The Dollar

Another warning shot was fired before an all-out assault on the dollar system begins. This time, an official shot: Alexey Ulyukaev, Russia’s Minister of Economic Development and former Deputy Chairman of the Central Bank, fired it. It was a major escalation, Valentin Mândr??escu, editor of The Voice of Russia’s Reality Check, told me from Moscow.

Time to Send “Hanoi John” McCain Packing

Time has come for John McCain to make some public disclosures. Yes, we all remember his admissions of wrong doing during the Keating 5 incident and the drug theft problems his wife had. These aren’t the questions we are asking. We want to go back to where that reputation for heroism was made and to find out if, not all but any of it is actually true. Many of us don’t feel that the apple fell far from the tree. Dad, Admiral McCain, was responsible for the cover up of the USS Liberty scandal and had a reputation as an arrogant blowhard and totally incompetent military leader.

Rise in prostitution feared with return of US troops

A women’s group has warned that the increased presence of United States troops in the country would result in the “increased prostitution” of Filipino women.

Filipinos should protest the new agreement as a breach of Philippine sovereignty, said Proleta Gomez, the spokesperson for Pagkakaisa ng Kababaihan para sa Kalayaan (Kaisa Ka).

She said the “sex trade” appeared to be the “sales pitch” of United States Ambassador Philip Goldberg and Olongapo City Mayor Rolen Paulino, based on the announcements they made following a closed-door meeting the two had in the city last March 3.

Russia Under Attack

The neoconservative Victoria Nuland sits in her State Department office happily choosing the members of the next Ukrainian government. Is this US official oblivious to the risk that Washington’s meddling in the internal affairs of Ukraine and Russia could be triggering nuclear war?

John Kerry: Russia has until Monday to reverse course in Ukraine

Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance.

Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now they have set a deadline. If Monday comes ans goes and Russia has not backed down, then the US loses major political face.

The new Great (Threat) Game in Eurasia

In Ukraine, the West supported an unconstitutional putsch against an elected government perpetrated, among others, by fascist/neo-nazi storm troopers (Svoboda, Right Sector) instrumentalized by US intelligence. After a Russian counterpunch, US President Barack Obama proclaimed that any referendum in Crimea would "violate the Ukrainian constitution and violate international law."

This is just the latest instance in the serial rape of "international law". The rap sheet is humongous, including; NATO bombing Serbia for 78 days in 1999 to allow Kosovo to secede; the 2003 US invasion and subsequent trillion-dollar occupation and civil war creation in Iraq; NATO/AFRICOM bombing Libya in 2011 invoking R2P ("responsibility to protect") as a cover to provoking regime change; US investment in the secession of oil-wealthy South Sudan, so China has to deal with an extra geopolitical headache; and US investment in perennial civil war in Syria.

“Our sanctions will be, of course, symmetrical,” he added.

Criminal Obama must be impeached over Ukraine: Analyst

A political analyst says the United States’ plot to oust a sovereign elected government in Ukraine is a gross crime, adding that US President Barack Obama must be impeached.

“His [Obama’s] claim that is a national emergency in the United States is simply proof that Obama is declaring himself a dictator, that he’s acting outside of the constitution, outside of the Congress and that he must be impeached immediately if we are not to go with a thermonuclear confrontation with Russia in the coming days,” Mike Billington, editor for Executive Intelligence Review newsmagazine, told Press TV.

America, minus the mask

America is a nation of killers. It always has been, from the first Pilgrims who set foot in Massachusetts and later murdered the very people who had saved them from starvation.

The entire American population is trapped in a self-delusion that they are heroes, fighting an endless string of evil enemies. But in fact their targeted enemies have always been innocent people, usually minding their own business, put in harm's way by their own valuable possessions, which Americans inevitably covet, and will kill anyone to get.

America’s Advancing Empire: Putsch, Pillage and Duplicity

The Obama regime, in coordination with its allies and proxies, has re-launched a virulent world-wide campaign to destroy independent governments, encircle and ultimately, undermine global competitors, and establish a new US – EU centered world order.

We will proceed by identifying the recent ‘cycles’ of US empire-building; the advances and retreats; the methods and strategies; the results and perspectives. Our main focus is on the imperial dynamics driving the US toward greater military confrontations, up to and including conditions which can lead to a world war.

The West’s double standards on Ukraine

The US is concerned about ‘sovereignty’? That’s news. In the twenty-first century alone (not Kerry’s nineteenth century), we have seen the West override national sovereignty in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, to name the most obvious examples. Go back a few decades further, and you have US/Western violations of sovereignty in Panama, Grenada and the aforementioned Former Yugoslavia.

NATO starts Polish war games but bad weather delays naval drills

Without naming neighbouring Ukraine, Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski called on his country's political parties to safeguard defence spending at a time of budget constraints due to the "events to the east".

Ukraine Crisis: Just Another Globalist-Engineered Powder Keg

With the exception of a few revolutions, most wars are instigated and controlled by financial elites, manipulating governments on both sides of the game to produce a preconceived result. The rise of National Socialism in Germany, for instance, was largely funded by corporate entities based in the U.S., including Rockefeller giant Standard Oil, JPMorgan and even IBM, which built the collating machines specifically used to organize Nazi extermination camps, the same machines IBM representatives serviced on site at places like Auschwitz. As a public figure, Adolf Hitler was considered a joke by most people in German society, until, of course, the Nazi Party received incredible levels of corporate investment. This aid was most evident in what came to be known as the Keppler Fund created through the Keppler Circle, a group of interests with contacts largely based in the U.S.

The US, NATO and the West use economics to enslave countries – FM Živadin Jovanovi?

Like Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and before it the former Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Serbia is another country that was also invaded and destroyed by US/NATO. Serbia today is overburdened by foreign debt and through the IMF and other “loans”, like other countries, faces being enslaved by the West. Serbia is proof that when the West gives 1 Euro, it takes 100 Euros. You mentioned the damage of NATO to Yugoslavia $120 billion. But even what was not destroyed, that was privatized by criminal privatization. These issues and more were touched upon by Živadin Jovanovi?, the former Foreign Minister of Yugoslavia in an interview with the Voice of Russia.

O-Bombshell: War Secretly Declared On China By Executive Order

Despite criticism about Obama going on vacation in the midst of the Ukraine crisis, the American people should know that Barack Obama signed a bombshell Executive Order and then ran for the hills. The below executive order is highlighted with the most important information we “meat & potatoes”, uneducated folks should pay attention to.

It’s pretty easy to decipher if one has a basic understanding of the law & legalese — or shall we call it; speaking out of 5 sides of your mouth to slam your opponent. Essentially, the attorneys who wrote this did so for the people who said to themselves,

“……How can we totally screw China for getting behind the Russians in the Ukraine crisis? I KNOW! Let’s screw them on the 100?s of billions in mortgage-backed securities!….”

PUSHING FOR WAR WITH RUSSIA - ARE THEY CRAZY ENOUGH TO TRY ANOTHER FALSE-FLAG ATTACK?

At the risk of sounding like the little boy who cried "wolf" I think the time has come to once again re-examine the possibility of a false flag act committed by either the US or Israeli governments, or banking interests, in order to restart the clearly stalled war agenda.

One very likely possibility is that even though the Montreux Convention bans submarines from nations not bordering the Black Sea from transiting the Bosphorus, it would be possible for a US or Israeli submarine to sneak into the Black Sea and torpedo one of the US surface ships already on station there. This would be a repeat of the sinking of the USS Maine, falsely blamed on a Spanish mine in Havana harbor, that launched the nation into the war with Spain.

US seeks nuclear war with Russia, China: Pundit

The US and its NATO allies are capitalizing on the crisis in Ukraine to justify a nuclear war against Russia and China, a political analyst tells Press TV.

In a Friday interview, Mike Billington warned that as a result of Washington’s provocations regarding the Ukrainian crisis, the international community is “on the brink of a global thermonuclear war.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not a wild fantasy. The US after more than ten years of war is economically and financially exhausted, and between the lack of the manufacturing advantage that allowed the US to be on the winning side of WW1 and WW2, and the fact that our highly expensive weapons systems are turning out to be mostly junk, we cannot prevail against Russia in a conventional war, especially if China joins in. Hence, somewhere between now and final capitulation by the US Government, the US will use their nuclear arsenal.

Even if Iraq had possessed weapons of mass destruction (which we now know they did not), and even if Iraq had the long range ICBMs to reach across the Atlantic with (which we know they did not), Iraq would still not have been a threat to the US because any attack with a weapon of mass destruction would be national suicide.

Onward global army ... maybe sooner than later?

The beauty, in the eyes of some, is that when things get really bad for the general population and more and more uprisings occur, an international army will better be able to step in and do crowd control (you know, keeping the peace) than a local army would, local soldiers being possibly reluctant to shoot real bullets at their own people. That may also be one of the reasons for the partnership with the US Northern Command - so that US troops could step in to put down a Canadian uprising, and vice versa.

Last, but still worth considering: maybe recruitment centres won't be needed if a draft is imposed, which of course would only occur if the predicted WWIII is not just a conspiracy fantasy.

I'm also getting the feeling our economy is going to tank (further), which means there will be lots of unemployed youth with no place to go but the military.

I base my opinion on the fact that the 91-year-old Thomas, a former WHCA president, is unique among American journalists, having covered 10 different presidential administrations in a career stretching back to Dwight Eisenhower.

It is because of Thomas as much as anyone else that women were first included at the WHCA dinner since, as the WHCA’s website mentions:

In 2012 70% of US military donations went to the only candidate who opposed the wars and defended the Constitution. These men and women saw their votes stolen in the primaries further diminishing our right to say No to war. Bailouts did not just continue but graduated to stealing money from our accounts.

The American military is the only group of people in the world who can effectively say No to World War III.

Worth Re-reading This Memorial Day: War is a Racket by Gen Smedley Butler

Major General Smedley Darlington Butler, USMC

1881 - 1940

Double recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor

"I spent 33 years and 4 months in active service as a member of our country's most agile military force--the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from second lieutenant to Major General. And during that period I spent most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism. I suspected I was part of a racket all the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all members of the military profession I never had an original thought until I left the service."

Smedley D. Butler (1881-1940)
