Obama American Century

This century "will be and is an American century," President Barack Obama told troops at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, on Wednesday. The first 14 years have not been easy, with war and recession, but "I am as confident as I have ever been that this century, just like the last century, will be led by America," Obama said.

FALSE FLAG ALERT - ISIS followers urged to attack Times Square with homemade bombs

Supporters of the Islamic State terror group are being urged to attack Times Square and other popular American tourist attractions with easily assembled homemade bombs, according to a disturbing report Tuesday.

A message posted on an ISIS Web forum lists widely available ingredients needed to build a pipe bomb, and includes photos showing how to combine them into a deadly explosive device, Vocativ reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let us say you are ISIS and you are making great gains inside Syria and Iraq. The very LAST thing you want is direct military intervention. Hence the very LAST thing you will do is any actions or videos that help the US Government sell the American people on yet another war.

This story, like the beheadings videos, is just more war propaganda brought to you by the same government and corporate media that brought you torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, Spanish mines in Havana harbor, stolen Kuwaiti incubators, Saddam's nuclear weapons, etc. etc. etc. etc.

How many times do you have to be lied to by the government before you face up to the fact that you are being lied to by the government?

Senator McCain presses Hagel to clarify targeting Asad’s air forces too

McCain pressed Hagel to clarify whether the US will target Assad air forces should they attack the Syrian rebels under American charge. Hagel declined to give that assurance, saying, “We’re not there yet, but our focus is on ISIL,” another name for ISIS.

Is It Wise For Obama To Send Thousands Of U.S. Troops Into The Ebola Death Zone?

When there is a major problem somewhere in the world, Barack Obama loves to show that he is “doing something” by sending a contingent of U.S. troops to the affected area. But is it really wise for Obama to send thousands of young American men and women into the Ebola death zone? What are our troops going to do – shoot the virus? Of course not.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama continues his unbroken record of utter failings such as Obamacare, Fiscal Stimulus, global warming, IRS targeting, etc.

Dems divided on Obama’s Syria plan

The deep divisions among Democrats over President Barack Obama’s plan to attack Islamic State militants foreshadow fights ahead within the party over how aggressively to assert itself on foreign policy.

A growing number of rank-and-file Democrats are worried that the president’s plans would commit the United States to an open-ended conflict against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, costing the country blood and treasure in another unpredictable Mideast war. Yet party leaders and senior Democrats believe now is the time to stand behind the commander in chief, given the lack of viable options and the deepening crisis threatening to plunge the region into further turmoil.

Ebola & West Africa's Offshore Oil By JC Collins

The movement of troops, especially American troops, is the dead giveaway to any broader game plan which is intended to be hidden within the structure of propaganda and media campaigns. So it is with muted surprise that we hear the news of the United States sending 3,000 troops to help fight the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.

As reported in the New York Times yesterday:

Under pressure to do more to confront the Ebola outbreak sweeping across West Africa, President Obama on Tuesday is to announce an expansion of military and medical resources to combat the spread of the deadly virus, administration officials said.

What isn’t reported in the article is that 1/3rd of all new oil discoveries have taken place in West Africa.

OBAMA'S DIRTY WAR ON AFRICA

Fear not, people of Western Africa! The most mighty and merciful military of Homo-Obongo is on its way to shoot and drone bomb those Ebola cells to death. And while our fighting men (and women, and trannies) are in the neighborhood, we might as well secure your oil and gold; just so those precious resources do not fall into the hands of the CIA, er, I mean 'Boku Haram' of "Bring Back Our Girls" fame.

Most importantly of all, we want to stop those awful, Putin-loving, Syria-loving, Iran-loving Chinese from taking advantage of you. You must realize that those loans and fancy development projects that China is helping you with is all just a commie trick. It is only Zionist America that truly loves you.

Dempsey: US Ground Combat Troops Possible in Islamic State Fight

Army Gen. Martin Dempsey said Tuesday that he would recommend deploying U.S. ground troops with the Iraqi army to combat the Islamic State if local forces fail to make progress under cover of U.S. airstrikes.

The White House has ruled out "boots on the ground," but Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that his recommendations to President Obama if the current strategy doesn't work "may include the use of U.S. military ground forces."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama has already decided for a full-on invasion, but will drop the blame on Dempsey to protect Democrat's chances in the November elections.

Pentagon Officials Tell Senate: ISIS War Will Be Long and Difficult

Top Pentagon officials, including Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey testified to the Senate Armed Services Committee today to brief them on the new war against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

The two offered very few details on the plans for the war, though Gen. Dempsey conceded that the US ground troops in the country as advisers could end up being used in combat operations, despite repeated insistence this had been ruled out.

Obama: If Assad Defends Against US Attack, US Will Attack

Only hours after delivering his ridiculous address to the American people regarding his strategy to combat an organization that is entirely the product of the United States and NATO and one that is still under complete control of these powers, Obama conducted a meeting with “foreign policy experts,” former government officials, and journalists.

The meeting, of course, is nothing more than round two in the volley of propaganda coming from the White House in its attempt to drum up more support from the American people for direct military intervention in Syria and an open use of U.S. military forces against the secular government of Bashar al-Assad. All of those within an ear’s reach of the reports regarding Obama’s meeting should be firmly aware that it is nothing more than an attempt to milk the original speech for more propaganda against Assad’s Syria and provide a sense of inevitability about the coming conflict there.

US Pursues 134 Wars Around the World

he US is now involved in 134 wars or none, depending on your definition of war ...The White House spent much of last week trying to figure out if the word "war" was the right one to describe its military actions against the Islamic State. US Secretary of State John Kerry was at first reluctant: "We're engaged in a major counterterrorism operation," he told CBS News on Sept. 11. "I think war is the wrong terminology and analogy but the fact is that we are engaged in a very significant global effort to curb terrorist activity... I don't think people need to get into war fever on this. I think they have to view it as a heightened level of counter terrorist activity."

Stop Calling the Iraq War a ’Mistake’

As Iraq descends into chaos again, more than a decade after "Mission Accomplished," media commentators and politicians have mostly agreed upon calling the war a "mistake." But the "mistake" rhetoric is the language of denial, not contrition: it minimizes the Iraq War’s disastrous consequences, removes blame, and deprives Americans of any chance to learn from our generation’s foreign policy disaster. The Iraq War was not a "mistake" — it resulted from calculated deception. The painful, unvarnished fact is that we were lied to. Now is the time to have the willingness to say that.

Top U.S. Military Official: Our Arab “Allies” Support ISIS

America’s top military official – the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin E. Dempsey – just admitted in a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing what we’ve been saying for months … America’s closest allies are supporting ISIS:

SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R), SOUTH CAROLINA, MEMBER OF ARMED SERVICES COMMITTEE: Do you know any major Arab ally that embraces ISIL?

GEN. MARTIN DEMPSEY, CHAIRMAN, JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF: I know major Arab allies who fund them.

GRAHAM: Yeah, but do they embrace them? They fund them because the Free Syrian Army couldn’t fight Assad. They were trying to beat Assad. I think they realized the folly of their ways.

Maybe a good start for defeating ISIS would be to stop funding them and their BFFs?

No court-martial for nurse who refused to give forced-feeding

A Navy commander has chosen not to court-martial a nurse who refused to conduct forced feedings of hunger strikers this summer and has instead asked a board to determine whether the nurse should be allowed to stay in the U.S. Navy.The nurse, a Navy lieutenant whose name has never been made public, reportedly turned conscientious objector before the Fourth of July after handling months of nasogastric feedings of prisoners shackled to a restraint chair.He has insufficient years in service as an officer to qualify for retirement. At issue is whether what he did should end his Navy career.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone who has ever had this done will tell you that even in the hands of the most skilled, compassionate practitioner, the process is ugly and uncomfortable.

That it should be done to people on a hunger strike because they know the only way to get out of Gitmo is by dying?!? Inhumane in the extreme.

And when some of these men do die, if the autopsies are done and documented correctly, those autopsies will bear compelling witness to the tortures they endured, and all Americans need to see that.

When the US government tortures, or outsources torture, it broadcasts to the world that those values it allegedly holds dear - peace, human dignity, compassion, and democracy, are only observed in the breach.

When the US government tortures, or outsources torture, it gives carte blanche for other governments around the world to torture our civilians and military.

For those of you with friends or family serving our military right now, please chew on that one for awhile.

43 Million People Kicked Out of Their Homes

War, our leaders tell us, is needed to make the world a better place.

Well, maybe not so much for the 43 million people who’ve been driven out of their homes and remain in a precarious state as internally displaced persons (24 million), refugees (12 million), and those struggling to return to their homes.

The U.N.’s figures for the end of 2013 (found here) list Syria as the origin of 9 million such exiles. The cost of escalating the war in Syria is often treated as a financial cost or — in rare cases — as a human cost in injury and death. There is also the human cost of ruining homes, neighborhoods, villages, and cities as places in which to live.

Just ask Colombia which comes in second place following years of war — a place where peace talks are underway and desperately needed with — among other catastrophes — nearly 6 million people deprived of their homes.

US using ISIL to sidestep UNSC over Syria: Analyst

Obama: We Will Hit Assad If He Messes With Our Airstrikes

The United States would retaliate against Syrian President Bashar Assad's air defenses if he were to go after American planes launching airstrikes in his country, senior Obama administration officials said Monday.

Officials said the U.S. has a good sense of where the Syrian air defenses, along with their command and control centers, are located. If Assad were to use those capabilities to threaten U.S. forces, it would put his air defenses at risk, according to the officials, who insisted on anonymity in order to discuss the administration's thinking on the matter.

U.S. targets ISIS in Iraq with fresh airstrikes

U.S. officials said Monday the United States has taken the first step in its planned expanded fight against Islamic State militants, going to the aid of Iraqi security forces near Baghdad who were being attacked by enemy fighters.

The U.S. Central Command said it conducted two airstrikes Sunday and Monday in support of the Iraqi forces near Sinjar and southwest of Baghdad.

The strikes represent the newly broadened mission authorized by U.S. President Barack Obama to go on the offensive against the Islamic State group wherever it is. Previous U.S. airstrikes in Iraq were conducted to protect U.S. interests and personnel, assist Iraqi refugees and secure critical infrastructure. These strikes were in direct support of Iraqi forces fighting the militants.

Sen. Graham: Obama’s ISIS Plan ‘Fantasy,’ ‘Delusional’

Sen. Lindsey Graham went off on President Obama’s plan for combatting ISIS in Syria and Iraq, saying the plan to not put boots on the ground in Syria is “fantasy” and that the administration’s approach to the matter is “delusional.”

“This idea that we’re never going to have boots on the ground in Syria is fantasy. All this has come home to roost after the last three years of incompetent decisions,” said Graham.

Graham, who appeared on “Fox News Sunday,” was extremely critical of the president not considering putting boots on the ground, saying it is needed in order to combat ISIS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay Lindsey, if you really feel that way, here's your rifle and here's your parachute. We ran out of the desert camo but here is a bright day-glo orange jumpsuit left over from the CIA's torture centers and we think the cleaners got most of the blood out. Watch your head climbing into that transport plane and we will call Assad and tell him you are on your way to kick his butt 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.

The prudent assumption is that the current spate of theatrical beheadings is just more of the same.

Who’s Paying the Pro-War Pundits?

If you read enough news and watch enough cable television about the threat of the Islamic State, the radical Sunni Muslim militia group better known simply as ISIS, you will inevitably encounter a parade of retired generals demanding an increased US military presence in the region. They will say that our government should deploy, as retired General Anthony Zinni demanded, up to 10,000 American boots on the ground to battle ISIS. Or as in retired General Jack Keane’s case, they will make more vague demands, such as for “offensive” air strikes and the deployment of more military advisers to the region.

But what you won’t learn from media coverage of ISIS is that many of these former Pentagon officials have skin in the game as paid directors and advisers to some of the largest military contractors in the world.

Australia contributing 600 troops, up to 10 aircraft to campaign against Islamic State group

Abbott said Australia was responding to a formal request from the United States for specific contributions to the international coalition.

President Barack Obama announced the more aggressive military campaign last week. Scores of U.S. airstrikes have been launched at select targets in Iraq, and U.S. planes and drones will be gathering intelligence on targets before launching airstrikes in Syria.

Australia will prepare up to eight F/A18 combat aircraft, an E-7A Wedgetail Early Warning and Control aircraft and a KC-30A Tanker and Transport aircraft to be deployed to the United Arab Emirates, a statement from Abbott's office said.

Pope Francis warns that ‘piecemeal World War III’ is already here

“War is madness,” said Pope Francis on Saturday, a madness that he is worried the world is slipping collectively back into.

According to the BBC, the Argentinian pontiff was speaking from Redipuglia cemetery near Slovenia, where some 100,000 Italian soldiers who perished in World War I are remembered.

He warned that with the proliferation of conflicts large and small around the globe, that humanity has already begun to fight a “piecemeal World War III.”

“Humanity needs to weep, and this is the time to weep,” Francis said. “Even today, after the second failure of another world war, perhaps one can speak of a third war, one fought piecemeal, with crimes, massacres, destruction.”

Obama’s ISIS War is Not Only Illegal, it Makes George W. Bush Look Like a Constitutional Scholar

Andrew J. Bacevich, the Boston University political science professor and former Army colonel who lost his son in the Iraq war in 2007, in a recent Reuters article.

I have spent the past several days outlining my deep concerns about the “ISIS crisis” and Obama’s willingness to employ extreme propaganda in order to once again embark on another poorly thought out military campaign here and here. What I have also come to realize is that his latest war plan is brazenly illegal and unconstitutional.

While critics have been questioning the legality of U.S. military campaigns consistently since the end of World War II, one trend has become increasingly clear. With each new President and each new war, we have witnessed those who hold the office act more and more like dictators, and less and less like constitutional executives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When Obama orders the first bombing in Syria, it will be an unspeakable act of war against a sovereign nation which has not attacked, or done anything to harm, the United States.

Syria will have its Ambassador to the UN complain, but any discussion of this in the Security Council will be null and void, because the US will veto any resolution to attempt to get the bombing to stop.

This will be be both a violation of US law, and a violation of international law.

What appears to be happening here, is that Obama is playing picador with Syria in order to cause Syria to invoke its mutual defense pact with Iran.

At that point, the US government will scream about Iran and Syria daring to fight back, and attack Iran, which has been, the P5+1 negotiations not withstanding, been the goal all along.

Israel may well coordinate some military activity with the US because it wants to see Tehran burning in flames, and "regime change" happening here.

But the two thousand pound gorilla, snoring on the Steinway here, is Russia. Numerous Russian political and military leaders have stated, over the past several years, that should Iran be attacked, Russia will come to its aid militarily.

So ultimately, all these military misadventures are headed toward a war with Russia that the US government and military most likely cannot win, because we do not have the manufacturing, the money, or troop strength to insure a positive outcome.

However, in watching the corporate presstitutes' attempts to "groom" a war weary American people for war, and more war does not seem to be working this time, and DC is beginning to realize that its propaganda is not working.

We the People must speak out peacefully and honestly: let's fix the problems here at home before we have the hubris to tell other countries how to run their lives. No more war; no more funding for war; and no more corporate-funded candidates who do the work their corporate masters demand of them, but conveniently forget their alleged constituents.

Because if this doesn't end soon, we will see the entire world engulfed in a nuclear war which could well obliterate life as we know it.

Obama Administration Says U.S. Is 'At War' With ISIS

The Obama administration said for the first time Friday that the United States is “at war” with ISIS militants.

Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, used the language at least three times during his daily briefing with reporters. “The U.S. is at war with ISIL in the same way the U.S. is at war with al Qaeda,” he said, using an alternate acronym for the group.

Minutes earlier, a Pentagon spokesman, Rear Adm. John Kirby, used similar terminology. “This is not the Iraq war of 2002,” he told reporters. “But, make no mistake, we know we are at war with ISIL, in the same way we are at war and continue to be at war with al Qaeda and its affiliates.”

Later in the afternoon, a State Department spokeswoman used almost the exact same language.

Russia and Iran know that this is actually a means by which to bomb the Syrian army and air force, so that Israel can move in and steal whatever they consider to be of value, just as they have done in every other country that they blackmailed western forces into attacking for them, while they sit on the sidelines and sneer and cheer; death and destruction being two things that make the whole nation tumescent.

While decrying the death and violence the Islamic State has brought across Syria and Iraq, President Obama said Friday that there is actually a “silver lining” to the militant group’s rise.

Speaking at a Democratic party fundraiser in Baltimore, the president said the Islamic State’s sheer brutality — evidenced by the beheadings of two American journalists, the murders of religious minorities and other horrific acts — should convince the rest of the Arab world that Islamist extremism must be confronted and defeated.

Isis air strikes: Obama's plan condemned by Syria, Russia and Iran

The Syrian government and its close allies in Moscow and Tehran warned Barack Obama that an offensive against Islamic State (Isis) within Syria would violate international law yesterday, hours after the US president announced that he was authorising an open-ended campaign of air strikes against militants on both sides of the border with Iraq.

Syrian opposition groups welcomed Obama's announcement and called for heavy weapons to fight the "terror" of Isis and Bashar al-Assad. Saudi Arabia and nine other Arab states pledged to back the US plan "as appropriate".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And note how quickly Assad has been lumped in with ISIS as the intended target!

Redrawing the Map of the Russian Federation: Partitioning Russia After World War III?

The end goal of the US and NATO is to divide (balkanize) and pacify (finlandize) the world’s biggest country, the Russian Federation, and to even establish a blanket of perpetual disorder (somalization) over its vast territory or, at a minimum, over a portion of Russia and the post-Soviet space, similarly to what is being done to the Middle East and North Africa.

Why is Israel Missing from ISIS Fight?

Israel gets $3 billion a year in military aid from the US. Over the last 60 years, the Jewish state has received about $250 billion worth of airplanes and armaments.

Yet when Obama appeals for a "a broad international coalition" to fight ISIS, which supposedly threatens the whole Middle East, Israel is not asked to join. Canada, Germany, Australia, France, Turkey ..all are asked..but not Israel.

Barack, We Hardly Knew Ye

But here’s the giant flaw in Obama’s incendiary strategy. The Peshmerga can be counted upon to ferociously defend Kurdistan against ISIS encroachment, and the Shiite militias will doubtless accomplish the same in their own territories. But no one with a modicum of historical knowledge would think it sane to send them up into the Sunni lands of the Euphrates valley to mop-up after the American bombs, missiles and drones.

In short, once Washington is in full bombs away mode there will be no Free Syrian Army or reconstituted Iraqi army to finish the job. And the idea of meaningful boots on the ground from a regional coalition amongst the enmity ridden nation’s of Turkey, Iran, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE is too preposterous to even merit discussion.

President's ISIS speech fails to mention plan to protect homeland

U.S. President and Commander in Chief Barack Obama on Wednesday night held a prime-time televised address to the American people, which was admittedly designed to explain to the people that the President actually has a strategy for taking on the threat posed by the Islamic State (ISIS). That strategy entails air strikes and promises of coalition ground forces increasing in Iraq, as well as the possibility of the U.S. extending bombing missions to include Islamic State forces in Syria. But critics say he neglected to mention steps taken to prevent ISIS and other Muslim terrorist organizations from entering the United States.

Cheney’s re-emergence complicates Obama’s response to Islamic State

A generation of Americans has been born into a police state in which privacy and constitutional protections no longer exist.

OBAMA AUTHORIZES STRIKES IN SYRIA, MORE TROOPS HEADED TO IRAQ

President Barack Obama outlined a new, expanded strategy to "degrade and ultimately destroy" the extremist group calling itself the Islamic State (also know as ISIS or ISIL) with a primetime speech Wednesday night. Speaking from the state floor of the White House, Obama vowed to "eradicate" the group.

"So tonight, with a new Iraqi government in place, and following consultations with allies abroad and Congress at home, I can announce that America will lead a broad coalition to roll back this terrorist threat," Obama said, according to a prepared version of his remarks. "Our objective is clear: we will degrade, and ultimately destroy, ISIL through a comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism strategy."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama started out his speech making all the right statements about stopping ISIS, then stopped short of declaring open war.

This may be his realizing that more wars will work against incumbents in November with Democrats taking the brunt of the public outrage. Obama may be thinking of ramping up the war for real after the election.

But those who wanted the wars to start now are enraged and much of the corporate media is lambasting Obama for not going far enough. Some commenters are going as far as to try to re-write Obama's speech after the fact, reporting what they wanted him to say or trying to pout their own interpretations on it. Obama's "solution" to the crisis is to repeat the mistakes of Yemen and Somalia, maintain air strikes, and rely on others to send in the boots on the ground. None of this will work, and Yemen and Somalia are hardly successes to be emulated.

Still, I am relieved that for at least one more day we are not catapulted into a global conflagration which the US ultimately will lose.

Right now my main worry is that those who wanted the wars to crank up for real today will, in their frustration, find some means to provoke the situation, even without Obama's consent.

Washington's ISIS War Drums: Do Stupid Stuff, Do It Now!

s Hillary Clinton was widely quoted as saying recently, “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.”

Maybe others have pointed out that this is a pretty stupid statement, but that’s far from the conventional wisdom. Think about the levels of stupidity here. Only “Great nations?” What, small nations don’t need to get their acts together? And who says the United States is a “great” nation, and in what sense is it great, and isn’t spouting a version of the American exceptionalism cliché just another way of doing stupid stuff? As organizing principles go, “Don’t do stupid stuff” is a great place to start. Then all you need to do is figure out what’s stupid and don’t do it: like not voting for war in Iraq in 2002.

New Iraqi Government Will Abide by U.S. Regional Goals

You see the disastrous U.S. policy in Iraq and their attempts to defeat the Assad government and the Syrian army were actually kind of shooting themselves in the knee, because it was based on false assumption and, incredibly, overestimation of oppositional forces and the underestimation of the interests of Russia and Iran and so on, especially in Syria. So now what they're trying to do: they're trying to utilize the conflict in Iraq with the Islamic State to expand and extend the war against, again, the government of al-Assad and the Syrian army, utilizing now the Islamic State.

Obama’s Islamic State strategy relies on allies with own reputations for brutality

Whatever strategy President Barack Obama lays out Wednesday to combat the Islamic State is sure to rely heavily on buy-in from rival Muslim powerhouses Saudi Arabia and Iran – one a Sunni Muslim kingdom with its own grim penchant for beheadings and the other a Shiite pariah state that’s executed thousands of dissidents.

Though hardly ideal, these partners are vital to any serious effort to weaken the Islamic State, according to foreign policy analysts who are tracking the U.S. response. Depending on hardline Islamist theocracies to help in the fight against an even more militant, self-proclaimed caliphate is among the many uncomfortable scenarios Obama must accept if he’s serious about wading deeper into Middle Eastern wars.

Obama says he has authority to take action against IS

U.S. President Barack Obama told top lawmakers Tuesday that he has the authority he needs to take action against Islamic State (IS) militants.

Obama, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and Congressional leaders had a "productive" discussion and the leaders expressed their support for efforts to degrade and ultimately destroy IS, the White House said in a statement. The Islamic State, or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), is an al-Qaida splinter group also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

The meeting came ahead of a speech on Wednesday evening in which Obama will lay out his plan to fight the extremist group.

Obama told the Leaders that he would welcome action by Congress that would "aid the overall effort" and demonstrate to the world that the United States is united in defeating the threat from IS, said the statement.

So, one would think that Israel’s supporters and lobby in the United States and elsewhere would be very busy trying to "justify" Israel’s possible war crimes and even genocide in Gaza, and present a more positive image of Israel after the carnage in Gaza. But, that was not the case. Israel’s supporters continued to push for more military war against, as usual, Iran, as well as sanctions – a harsh form of economic warfare – the casualties of which, as sanctions against Iraq in the 1990s demonstrated, can far exceed those of military wars. Consider the following.

"It is time to bomb Iran’s nuclear capabilities. It is time for the United States; if we are not going to stop Iran’s nukes, then let Israel do it. A friend will not put another friend in this kind of jeopardy."

(Secondary confirmation in this NYT article) This was just three days after Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed by the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi.

Obama ready to strike at Islamic State militants in Syria, he tells policy experts

President Obama is prepared to use U.S. military airstrikes in Syria as part of an expanded campaign to defeat the Islamic State and does not believe he needs formal congressional approval to take that action, according to people who have spoken with the president in recent days.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The goal is war with Syria. That was the goal last year with the lie about Assad gassing his own Alawite supporters with Sarin gas right in front of the UN chemical weapons inspectors last year and it remains the goal today with the US-created ISIS and the staged beheading videos.

Under the Constitution, Obama does not have the authority to arbitrarily bomb Syria, especially since Assad does not want him there.

Obama does not have ther authority to bomb Syria under international law. U.N. Charter, Article 2 , paragraph 4, “ “All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.”

Obama’s ISIS War: Profit for Military Contractors

“The military task has, in fact, been outsourced in Iraq,” analyst Steven Schooner, a professor at George Washington University Law School, told the Journal.

The Pentagon has converted Iraq with its violent sectarian rivalries into a lucrative business opportunity for a burgeoning mercenary and contractor industry that has blossomed in the wake of the September 11, 2001, terror attacks.

Obama’s ISIS war arrives at an opportune time for contractors. From 2008 to 2013, according to data provided to the Securities and Exchange Commission, the five largest U.S. defense contractors have experienced a 14 percent drop in employees. Lockheed Martin Corporation, the biggest defense contractor in the world, cut its workforce by 20 percent, International Business Times reported in August. The ISIS war now gearing up will undoubtedly restore lost revenue and provide for lost jobs.

“There are obviously a range of capabilities or capacities that different countries have,” she said, adding that the coalition would seek to cut off ISIS from funding, foreign reinforcements and ideological support.

The head of the Anti-Fascist anti-Maidan council, Evgeny Shabayev has told the popular mass circulation daily Izvestia that his group possessed information about Ukrainian and Georgian citizens who played major roles in preparations to the violent events leading to displacement of governments and dissolution of parliaments in these countries – the so-called ‘color revolutions’. Now these people arrive in Russia and start talks with representatives of the pro-democracy opposition party Yabloko and other opposition groups in order to prepare and launch a similar regime change in Russia, the activist claimed.

Destroying ISIS may take years, US officials say

The Obama administration is preparing to carry out a campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria that may take three years to complete, requiring a sustained effort that could last until after President Obama has left office, according to senior administration officials.

The first phase, an air campaign with nearly 145 air strikes in the past month, is already underway to protect ethnic and religious minorities and American diplomatic, intelligence and military personnel, and their facilities, as well as to begin rolling back ISIS gains in northern and western Iraq.

The next phase, which would begin sometime after Iraq forms a more inclusive government, scheduled this week, is expected to involve an intensified effort to train, advise or equip the Iraqi military, Kurdish fighters and possibly members of Sunni tribes.

ISRAELI INTELLIGENCE ASSET BEHEADED BY ISIS

Congratulations USA. You found the perfect pretext to return your troops to the Middle East. Your creation, ISIS, beheaded a second American, Steve Sotloff, and you won't take it anymore. The problem is Satloff was an Israeli intelligence asset. And that muddies an already murky war.

Cameron seems to be considering breaking International law, not once but twice.

First he is considering arming the Kurds in Iraq without the permission from the Iraqi Government. Perhaps he thinks there really is a Kurdistan.

ISIS, ISIL or IS is armed, funded and trained by the USA. Their objective in Iraq is to totally destabalise the nation and weakening it by splitting it into three, part Kurd, part Iraqi and the remainder an Islamic Caliphate.

Secondly he’s openly suggesting that the UK should bomb parts of Syria without the permission of the Syrian Government , not any different in the slightest with Blair’s illegal invasion of Iraq. Cameron declares the Assad Government to be illegitimate.

That being the case in his mind, means that not a country in the world is safe from invasion or attack, Cameron can simply declare the Government to be illegitimate.

FALSE FLAG ALERT - Al Qaeda Has Control Of Missing Planes In Libya

Eleven commercial jets have reportedly been stolen in recent weeks in Libya, and Western intelligence agencies have begun warning they could be used in terror attacks on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Bill Gertz, Senior Editor of the Washington Free Beacon said he has spoken with intelligence officials who told him this poses a real danger and the CIA is actively trying to locate them. Gertz told John that Al Qaeda has control of the commercial planes which could be used for an attack on US interests in the Middle East or as a way of transporting Al Qaeda terrorists.

F-35: Zombie Fighter-Bomber of American "Defense" Fantasies?

fficially, the U.S. government is “still hopeful” that its nuclear-capable F-35, already the world’s most expensive war machine, might someday work as promised more than a decade ago.

That was the best face Under Secretary of Defense Frank Kendall would put on the beleaguered, overdue, and over-budget “fifth generation” Joint Strike Fighter just three weeks after a test version of the F-35 burst into flames on a Florida runway. Kendall’s hope that the F-35 would make a July appearance at the Farnsborough air show in Britain went up in smoke shortly after, and the $400 billion plane’s performance since then has not encouraged much greater hope. As Kendall said in early September, "I am getting, over time, more confident that we've got our arms around that problem and are solving it."

To fulfill its full military-industrial hope, the stealth warplane will need to find reliable engines, develop software that works, win at least two more lawsuits, and find more willing buyers.

David Cameron warns UK will not rule out military action in Iraq

On Thursday (September 4), as NATO members arrived for a two-day summit in Wales, British Prime Minister David Cameron announced he would not rule out any type of military action against Islamic State (formerly known as Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay David, if you really feel that way; here's your rifle. Here's your parachute. We ran out of the desert camo but here is a bright day-glo orange jumpsuit left over from the CIA torture centers. Watch your head climbing into that transport plane and we will call Iraq and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But we remember how we were tricked into the first invasion of Iraq with lies about stolen Kuwaiti incubators.

We remember how we were tricked into the second invasion of Iraq with lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons and your predecessor's 'dodgy dossier.'

So under the prudent assumption that we are being lied to yet again to trick us into a third invasion of Iraq you will understand if we choose to sit this one out and keep our children safe at home.

Have fun!

Flight Maneuver Hints at Cause of F-35 Fire

The U.S. Defense Department official in charge of the F-35 fighter jet program said a previous flight test maneuver played a role in an engine fire that led to a temporary grounding of the fleet and ongoing flying restrictions.

Speaking during a defense conference Wednesday at the National Press Club, Air Force Lt. Gen. Christopher Bogdan said three weeks before an F-35A made by Lockheed Martin Corp. caught fire during takeoff June 23 at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, it was flown in a manner designed to test the performance of its g-force, roll and yaw characteristics within designed limits known as the flight envelope.

The Publicizing of ISIS

ISIS is using these be-headings for their brutal agenda, but the mainstream media (MSM) are in a strange way – doing their bidding.

Why – why would Murdoch’s paper, The Herald Sun, have a full spread front page (above) of Steven Sotloff and the London ‘killer’, PLUS an inside double spread (below) of much the same image? (He seemed to be flashing a real knife this time). Taking nothing away from the grief and pain of the Foley and Sotloff families – or the significance of this news event – but why not a smaller picture and a more sober commentary of what happened. But NO. They are publicizing the violence; propagating the threats; and using the ISIS violence and threats of violence for the intimidation or coercion on the Australian Public. Why is the publicity around this so blatantly provocative and inflammatory? We are being terrorized? And for what purpose?

Who's Telling the 'Big Lie' on Ukraine?

f you wonder how the world could stumble into World War III – much as it did into World War I a century ago – all you need to do is look at the madness that has enveloped virtually the entire U.S. political/media structure over Ukraine where a false narrative of white hats vs. black hats took hold early and has proved impervious to facts or reason.

The original lie behind Official Washington’s latest “group think” was that Russian President Vladimir Putin instigated the crisis in Ukraine as part of some diabolical scheme to reclaim the territory of the defunct Soviet Union, including Estonia and other Baltic states. Though not a shred of U.S. intelligence supported this scenario, all the “smart people” of Washington just “knew” it to be true.

US Troops Are Heading To Ukraine

While only 'humanitarian adviser' boots on the ground are present in Iraq (and Syria), Reuters reports that preparations are under way near Ukraine's western border for a joint military exercise this month with more than 1,000 troops from the United States and its allies. As Obama told reporters last week, "that a military solution to this problem is not going to be forthcoming," it seems a little odd 'strategically' to go ahead with the Rapid Trident exercise Sept. 16-26 as a sign of the commitment of NATO states to support non-NATO member Ukraine, entailing the first significant deployment of U.S. and other personnel to Ukraine since the crisis erupted.

FLASHBACK - WMD dossier was 'sexed up', Iraq war enquiry is told by intelligence officer

TONY Blair’s attempts to justify the war in Iraq were shattered by explosive new evidence yesterday.

The ex-Prime Minister and his spin doctor Alastair Campbell have always denied “sexing up” evidence to make a case for the invasion by suggesting Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

But a senior intelligence officer told Sir John Chilcot’s inquiry into the conflict that was what happened.

Major General Michael Laurie, the former head of Defence Intelligence who helped draw up Downing Street’s “dodgy dossier”, wrote to the panel to say: “I and those involved in its production saw it as that, and that was the direction we were given.”

His damning account of how intelligence was spun to fit the case for war is among new documents released by the panel yesterday. They also include a memo drawn up two years before the invasion by the then head of MI6, suggesting getting rid of Saddam would help secure oil supplies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you encounter one of those poor fools still desperately clinging to the myth of the US being the good guys and the Russians the bad guys as offered by the corporate media, just ask if the remember being lied to about weapons of mass destruction, and when they answer in the affirmative, just ask them why they think they are being told the truth now. I find that to be very effective in breaking through the denial.

Totalitarian Collectivism

The New World Order has been in place for centuries. Is it not time to start calling the NWO by another name? A descriptive term that encapsulates the essence of the beast would be a Nefarious Warrior Organism. Such a phrase strips away the ridiculous notion that there is any order in the malevolent organization of the parasitic global structure, based upon perpetual and permanent warfare. This depiction more closely resembles reality, even if the master mass media refuses to acknowledge How the World Really Works. Discard any condemnation that criticism of the established order rests upon conspiratorial fantasy or pre-medieval prejudices. Explaining away or ignoring basic human nature in a "PC" culture ultimately requires the adoption of a depraved Totalitarian Collectivism system. - See more at: http://www.batr.org/totalitariancollectivism/090114.html#sthash.yP2udA...

David Wilcock: "Two of The Most Significant Events in This Secret War.."

Glad Ben caught the epic JP Morgan computer hack, temporarily blamed on Russia, and the revealing statement from Kissinger expressing his regret about the crumbling of the New World Order. These were two of the most significant events in this secret war to have appeared last week.

Both of these show that moves are becoming increasingly high-level and desperate. Everything we are seeing suggests this is all building up to some sort of epic climax.

I encountered some hate comments about the work I have done recently, and the main criticism seems to be “nothing has happened… David and his sources have been thoroughly and totally discredited.”

Patience! Just because it hasn’t happened YET doesn’t mean it WON’T. Look at the evidence. It is becoming increasingly obvious that this secret war is real, and is building up to something big. Only so much can be done before it becomes openly known to everyone.

Russia’s Defense Ministry ridicules NATO’s photo-proof of invasion in Ukraine

It makes no sense to comment in detail on the satellite imagery released by NATO as “proof” of Russia’s military involvement in Ukraine, Defense Ministry’s spokesman said, pointing out that even high NATO officials were hesitant to put their names on it.

Referring to NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Supreme Allied Commander Europe Philip Breedlove, and NATO Spokesperson Oana Lungescu, Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov ridiculed the so-called NATO proof.

“You know, it has become ridiculous… If earlier, someone would at least put their names on those images, be it Breedlove, Rasmussen, or even Lungescu, now, they are hesitant,” Konashenkov said as cited by RIA Novosti. “It makes no sense to seriously comment on this.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Keep in mind that Kiev purchased 58 surplus T-72 tanks from Hungary some weeks ago, shipping them through the Czech Republics in an attempt to conceal their real destination. That satellite photo could easily be of Kiev's T-72s, painted with Russian markings.

Iranian sail boat defended itself against U.S. Coast Guard

As preposterous as it may sound, the U.S. coast guard boards boats everywhere in the world, not just along the American coast, and if things are not perfect, they detain everyone on the boat and burn it, even if it is a multi million dollar yacht. Knowing this policy, an Iranian fishing boat that was operating off the coast of Iran refused to allow boarding by the U.S. coast guard. The Coast Guard fired on this boat, but according to the Washington Post, left it floating with all aboard. At the end of this report is a link to a Washington Post article that downplays the Coast Guard's hostile role in international waters, and the attitude expressed in the Washington Post article says a LOT.

Army rocket blown up during failed launch in Kodiak

A test of a new Army weapon failed 4 seconds into flight from the Kodiak Launch Complex early Monday when the rocket went awry and was blown to bits by flight controllers.

The fiery end to the rocket short-circuited the second test of a hypersonic glider designed to fly so fast it can reach anywhere on the globe in about an hour. The test target was the U.S. missile facility on Kwajalein atoll in the Marshall Islands, about 4,000 miles away.

Debris from the three-stage, solid-fuel launch vehicle rained down on the state-owned launch facility. No one was injured but buildings were damaged, said Craig Campbell, president and chief executive officer of Alaska Aerospace Corp.

The Defense Department leased the launch complex for the test, paying the state about $5 million, Campbell said.

“A recent application of non-skid coating on the flight deck of the USS Bonhomme Richard was not up to Navy safety standards and is being reapplied,” Cmdr. William Marks, spokesman for 7th Fleet, said in an email to Stars and Stripes. “This will cause an increase in port time and decrease in underway days for Bonhomme Richard.”

Rights before weapons for Vietnam

Earlier this month, Senator John McCain indicated that it was time for the United States to consider selling lethal weapons to Vietnam after a 30-year embargo. The recent maritime standoff between Beijing and Hanoi over Chinese oil exploration off the central coast of Vietnam exposed Hanoi’s many strategic weaknesses.

Providing Vietnam with coast guard and maritime systems as a first step - and eventually radar, fighter aircraft and spare parts for leftover American military equipment - would bolster Hanoi’s strategic capabilities vis-a-vis China and give substance to the "comprehensive partnership" announced last year between Hanoi and Washington.

“The Russian Aggression Prevention Act” (RAPA): A Direct Path to Nuclear War with Russia

The Russian Aggression Prevention Act”, introduced to Congress by U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), will set the US on a path towards direct military conflict with Russia in Ukraine.

Any US-Russian war is likely to quickly escalate into a nuclear war, since neither the US nor Russia would be willing to admit defeat, both have many thousands of nuclear weapons ready for instant use, and both rely upon Counterforce military doctrine that tasks their military, in the event of war, to preemptively destroy the nuclear forces of the enemy.

Muslim Leaders Worldwide Condemn ISIS

Many Americans Want to Know Why Muslims Aren’t Condemning ISIS

Why don’t we hear Muslims condemning the barbarian ISIS terrorists?

ABC News’ Laura Ingraham, Fox News’ Sean Hannity and Fox & Friends and other U.S. media commentators say that Muslims are silent and complicit.

Muslim leaders are actually speaking out … but our press isn’t covering it.

THE GOAL OF THE ISIS PSYOPS IS WORLD WAR III

ISIS is everywhere and America should be paralyzed with fear. ISIS is in Ferguson, they are on Twitter, they are in Iraq and Syria, they are crossing our undefended southern border. TheY could be carrying Ebola into the country. Stop, stop, stop! Here is a phrase that I would like all Americans to memorize and recite often:

“ISIS is everywhere, because the CIA is everywhere”.

Canadian soldier accused of using female subordinate as ‘open bar’ f

A Canadian Forces warrant officer threw himself into his lawyer’s arms and his friends let out whoops of joy as he was acquitted Friday on a charge of sexually assaulting a female subordinate.

Andre Gagnon, 48, was on trial for the alleged sexual assault of then-corporal Stephanie Raymond in December 2011 at an armoury near Quebec City.

His court martial was overseen by a colonel in front of a panel of five male soldiers who reached the verdict.

US Begins Selling "Syria Intervention" Using ISIS Pretext

In a previous report titled, "Growing Mayhem - US Operating on Both Sides of Syrian-Iraqi Border," it was reported that (emphasis added):

Clearly, the answer, left for readers to arrive at on their own, is that these "successful" US airstrikes in Iraq must be carried over into Syria - where mission creep can do the rest, finally dislodging the Syrian government from power after an ongoing proxy war has failed to do so since 2011. After arming and aiding the Kurds in fighting ISIS in Iraq, the US will attempt to make a similar argument regarding the arming of terrorists in Syria and providing them direct US air support to defeat ISIS - and of course - Damascus.

In less than 24 hours, the New York Times would report in its article, "U.S. General Says Raiding Syria Is Key to Halting ISIS," that:

Fmr. Homeland Security Adviser: ‘Very, Very True’ ISIS May Have Crossed Border

Joshua Katz, an Army veteran and former CIA operations officer who served as Senior Policy Advisor to the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said it is “very, very, true” that ISIS may have crossed the southern border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obviously this will not go over very well with the pro-illegal immigration agenda, but what is being done here is the creation of a plausible means for the terrorists (nudge nudge wink wink) to have brought the bomb into the US. Personally, I think the weapon is already inside the US and has been for quite some time, either a bomb crafted from some of the Uranium Israel stole during the NUMEC scandal or the missing nuke from the Minot incident.

FLASHBACK - U.S. Suspected Israeli Involvement in 1960s Missing Uranium

Declassified documents from the 1970s provide new evidence that federal officials believed bomb-grade uranium that disappeared from a Pennsylvania nuclear facility in the 1960s was likely taken for use in a clandestine Israeli atomic-weapons program.

The documents, obtained earlier this year through public-records requests by a Washington-based nonprofit group, also indicate that senior officials wanted to keep the matter under wraps for fear it could undermine U.S. Middle East peace efforts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is estimated that Israel acquired at least 118 kilograms of weapons-grade uranium. 16 kilograms of uranium is enough to make a working nuclear weapon. So Israel acquired enough uranium to make seven bombs. Now the trick of getting a "terrorist" nuclear weapon into the United States is getting it INTO the United States, but Israel started out with enough uranium inside the United States to make 7 bombs, then smuggled all or part of it back to Israel. It would have been trivial for Israel to leave enough weapons-grade uranium inside the US to build a bomb, and there is still the unexplained radiation surrounding Israel's New York Embassy. Getting that weapons-grade uranium is the hard part of building a bomb. Once you have that, the rest is easy. All a uranium bomb does is take two sub-critical pieces of uranium and slap them together. Such a bomb makes for a great means of blackmailing the US government, or staging the ultimate terror false-flag to trigger WW3. Just something to keep in mind while ABCNNBBCBSFOXDRUDGE scream at you that ISIS is going to nuke a US city!

NATO Using Foley and ISIS As A Pretext For Bombing Syria - Ultimate Target Is Russia

The Islamic State and the war in Syria is back on the front pages of the news once again on the heels of the alleged killing of James Mark Foley, an American journalist working in Syria. The outrage surrounding the alleged beheading of Foley, while justifiable if it is real, is already being used for propaganda purposes, namely in order to build up American support for an aerial bombing campaign against the Syrian government.

Ed Gein in a Skin Suit with Louboutins

Now we see an ominous glimpse of the agenda of the 1%. Those who are directly responsible for world conditions at this time. ISIS was created by western and Israeli intelligence services to act as a foil and a stimulus for reckless adventurism, manifesting as a whole lot of murder and mayhem against people without the weaponry to defend themselves. They are the new boogeyman to replace Al Qaeda, who is getting long in the tooth and they are the ones who are going to be blamed
