Is Turkey Starting a Proxi-War for NATO?

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

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

Turkey Shoots Down More Than Just a Russian Jet

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

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

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

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

How the Islamic State is Really Anti-Islamic

Waking Times

Islam proclaims that killing one human being (unjustly) is equal to killing the whole humanity (Qur’an, 5:32). In this perspective, the recent Paris terror attacks as well as all other incidents of terrorism which cause the death of innocent people should actually be considered as the attacks on the whole humanity. Notwithstanding, the terror incident in Paris has once again triggered the old debate as to what extent Islam should be blamed for the barbaric acts committed by ISIS, which is known as the Islamic state of Iraq and Syria, but actually it deserves to be called as “Inhuman State” for its barbaric activities all over the world.

Senior MP: Turkey Troubling Dispatch of Russian Military Aid to Iraq

A senior Iraqi lawmaker blasted the Turkish government for creating problems in the way of Russia's arms aid to Iraq. "Turkey's troubling the dispatch of Russian weapons to Iraq has strained the Baghdad-Ankara relations," Khaled al-Assadi told FNA on Wednesday. Al-Assadi said that the Iraqi government should make use of Iran's military hardware as alternate to Russia's. The senior Iraqi lawmaker said that Tehran should do marketing for its weapons in Iraq and other regional countries. The Iraqi Parliament's Security and Defense Committee has accused Turkey of preventing the Russian helicopters from carrying weapons to Iraq. The Iraqi parliament has, instead, called for handing over the Russian military choppers to Iran and from there to Iraq. In early October, Chairman of the Iraqi parliament's defense committee said Baghdad wants Moscow to have a bigger role in the anti-terrorist campaign in Iraq than the US and may soon officially request to start airstrikes on its soil...

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

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

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

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

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

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

France and Israël launch a new war in Iraq and Syria

This is a good article with a lot to digest!

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

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

American Self-Hatred

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

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

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

The US invasion of Iraq in 2003 came with many warnings that it would lead to a dire consequences for the whole region. A decade later, and the brutal jihadists from ISIS are dominating the north of the devastated country. Now, the US is again mulling the possibility of sending its army to Iraq once more - but would that actually help solve the issue? From where does the money come for the Islamic State?

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

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

Stopping ISIS: Follow the Money

Wars are expensive. The recruitment and sustainment of fighters in the field, the ongoing purchases of weapons and munitions, as well as the myriad other costs of struggle, add up.

So why isn’t the United States going after Islamic State’s funding sources as a way of lessening or eliminating their strength at making war? Follow the money back, cut it off, and you strike a blow much more devastating than an airstrike. But that has not happened. Why?


Many have long held that Sunni terror groups, ISIS now and al Qaeda before them, are funded via Gulf States, such as Saudi Arabia, who are also long-time American allies. Direct links are difficult to prove, particularly if the United States chooses not to prove them. The issue is exacerbated by suggestions that the money comes from “donors,” not directly from national treasuries, and may be routed through legitimate charitable organizations or front companies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And yet, the Clinton Foundation has absolutely zero problem accepting money from the Saudi Arabian government!! As reported at /

In an extraordinary report that has not yet been fully digested, the Wall Street Journal tells us that the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation has received millions from foreign governments including Qatar, a prominent backer of Hamas: The Clinton Foundation has dropped its self-imposed ban on collecting funds from foreign governments and is winning contributions at an accelerating rate, raising ethical questions as Hillary Clinton ramps up her expected bid for the presidency. Recent donors include the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Australia, Germany and a Canadian government agency promoting the Keystone XL pipeline. . . . United Arab Emirates, a first-time donor, gave between $1 million and $5 million in 2014, and the German government—which also hadn’t previously given—contributed between $100,000 and $250,000. A previous donor, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has given between $10 million and $25 million since the foundation was created in 1999. Part of that came in 2014, although the database doesn’t specify how much.

Hillary formally announced her candidacy for President on April 12, 2015: is the foundation, this year, still taking foreign countries' donations to the Clinton Fund, even after she has announced?!?

Well, folks, here is an eye-opener: as reported on April 16th, 2015, 4 days after Clinton announced her candidacy, the following statement was made by the foundation, as reported in

The Clinton Foundation said late Wednesday that it will continue to accept donations from foreign governments during Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, despite concerns that such gifts will create a conflict of interest for the Democratic front-runner. The foundation's board said that donations directly to the foundation would only be allowed from six governments — Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom. However, other governments could continue to participate in the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), a subsidiary program that encourages donors to match contributions from others to tackle international problems without direct donations to the charity.

And if this announcement did not specifically mention Saudi Arabia, I have to wonder if it is still contributing to the Clinton Global Initiate, covertly?!?

But here is the bottom line: electing Hillary Clinton means electing a
state Department and White House for sale to the highest bidder.

And just, please, what kind of protection does this provide We the People, in terms of trade deals, etc..?!?

Beyond this practice being more crooked than a dog's hind leg, and monumentally unethical, it means that this peddled influence of foreign corporations and governments will trump the needs and concerns of American citizens every time.

Was 9/11 the "New Pearl Harbor" needed to get Americans to support an invasion in the Middle East to get their "ball rolling," so to speak?

Flashback: Did Money Seal Israeli-Saudi Alliance?

According to a source briefed by U.S. intelligence analysts, the Saudis have given Israel at least $16 billion over the past 2 ½ years, funneling the money through a third-country Arab state and into an Israeli “development” account in Europe to help finance infrastructure inside Israel. The source first called the account “a Netanyahu slush fund,” but later refined that characterization, saying the money was used for public projects such as building settlements in the West Bank.

In other words, according to this information, the Saudis concluded that if you can’t beat the Israel Lobby, try buying it. And, if that is the case, the Saudis have found their behind-the-scenes collaboration with Israel extremely valuable. Netanyahu has played a key role in lining up the U.S. Congress to fight an international agreement to resolve a long-running dispute over Iran’s nuclear program.

What I Discovered From Interviewing Imprisoned ISIS Fighters

These boys came of age under the disastrous American occupation after 2003, in the chaotic and violent Arab part of Iraq, ruled by the viciously sectarian Shia government of Nouri al-Maliki. Growing up Sunni Arab was no fun. A later interviewee described his life growing up under American occupation: He couldn’t go out, he didn’t have a life, and he specifically mentioned that he didn’t have girlfriends. An Islamic State fighter’s biggest resentment was the lack of an adolescence. Another of the interviewees was displaced at the critical age of 13, when his family fled to Kirkuk from Diyala province at the height of Iraq’s sectarian civil war. They are children of the occupation, many with missing fathers at crucial periods (through jail, death from execution, or fighting in the insurgency), filled with rage against America and their own government.

White House: ISIS Lacks Capability to Attack US

Though the ISIS attacks in Paris were used as a pretext to step up security across several major US cities, White House officials mocked the notion that ISIS posed any real threat to launch attacks inside US, saying the group wants to but doesn’t have the capability to launch attacks within America.

The dismissal of ISIS as a threat will inevitably draw some comparisons to President Obama’s high profile comments on Thursday that ISIS has been successfully “contained” by the US military, which followed almost immediately with major attacks in both Beirut and Paris.

Still, officials maintain they’ve got no evidence of any credible threat posed by ISIS to launch any specific attacks within the US, though US intelligence on the matter is being drawn into some question given their total shock at the Paris attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An Analysis:

The US economy is in free-fall, for most Americans, courtesy of the continual off-shoring/outsourcing of American jobs. There is a palpable anger and disgust of Americans against the political class in this country, which is very close to boiling over, due to the growing understanding that their alleged "Congressional Representatives" only represent the corporations which support them financially.

Hillary Clinton, the Democrat's "anointed front runner", is under intense Congressional investigation and scrutiny due to Servergate, during the time she was the Secretary of State. This may, ultimately, leave her too damaged to either be nominated, or, if nominated, win the election in 2016.
With the Republicans, Trump still appears in the ascendency.

Governmental officials have stated, very publicly, that they have no way to actually "vet" the huge number of Syrian refugees who are being forcibly resettled in this country, courtesy of the Obama administration.

So the question has to be asked: how hard would it be for the US government to "manufacture" an horrific false flag right here at home to be blamed on ISIS?!?

The short answer would be, "Not very."

And what would be the purpose?!? To enforce and exact even more obeisance from the American people; reinstate the draft to continue pursuing these immoral and illegal pre-emptive wars; suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights; institute martial law, and postpone the 2016 elections "until order can be restored".

And if the scenario I have just outlined seems outrageous and farfetched, I hope to hell that it is, and will not happen. but in all my years of political activism as a Christian pacifist, there is one thing of which I am absolutely certain: this government will stop at nothing to achieve the outcomes it wants, for the continued financial empowerment of the 1%m even if those outcomes include the killing of innocent Americans, or innocents abroad.

French Colonisers Have Not Accepted The Loss Of Their Colony

More than 70 years has passed and the grandson of this Nur-Eddin – Mouaz al-Khatib, a former preacher at the Umayyad mosque in Damascus and now a deserter and traitor – has been elected head of the “Qatar Coalition” which was created on 11 November at a meeting in Doha.

France has shown its gratitude to the third-generation collaborator al-Khatib, whose grandfather collaborated with the colonisers, for his faithful service. Namely the former colonial power has been the first to recognise the “Qatar Coalition” as a legitimate representative of the Syrian people. It is no surprise that the flag of the “opposition” – green, white and black with three stars – is the same as the flag from the time when Syria was under French mandate.

French Colonial Dreams Linger On In Syria

When British troops under Marshal Allenby entered Damascus in 1918 accompanied by troops of the Arab Revolt led by Sharif Faisal of the Hussein of Mecca dynasty, French-British rivalry in the Middle East was already running at extreme highs. They were in no way resolved by the San Remo conference of April 1920 where the post-World War Allied Supreme Council met. It was attended by the four main non-US Allied Powers of World War I, represented by the prime ministers of Britain, France, Italy and by Japan's Ambassador K. Matsui.

This was the most important “turf war meeting” to divide up Class "A" League of Nations mandates for administering the former Ottoman-ruled lands of the Middle East. US participation was observer-only due to American deciders already setting apart the future Saudi Arabia as the USA's exclusive national zone of influence.

France May Fight ISIL on the Ground in Wake of Paris Attacks - Stratfor

France may send its "expeditionary force" to Syria in order to retaliate against ISIL, according to the US-based intelligence firm Stratfor; the group has claimed responsibility for Friday's terrorist attacks in Paris, which claimed at least 129 lives.

A shadow of France's President Francois Hollande is cast on a flag as he leaves a press conference on the second day of the NATO 2014 Summit at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, South Wales, on September 5, 2014
Will France Turn to NATO for Help in Responding to Terror Attacks?
Analysts from the private intelligence company Stratfor believe that France may send its "expeditionary force" to Syria or Iraq in response to the deadly Paris attacks that rocked the French capital on Friday night.
They claimed that France has a whole array of options for retaliation "at its disposal", but that the country's response will depend on "who was ultimately responsible" for the Friday attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

France could potential invoke article 5 of the Nato Charter, which contains the following principals:


Collective defence means that an attack against one Ally is considered as an attack against all Allies.
The principle of collective defence is enshrined in Article 5 of the Washington Treaty.
NATO invoked Article 5 for the first time in its history after the 9/11 terrorist attacks against the United States.
NATO has taken collective defence measures on several occasions, for instance in response to the situation in Syria and in the wake of the Ukraine crisis.
NATO has standing forces on active duty that contribute to the Alliance’s collective defence efforts on a permanent basis.
This principle is enshrined in Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty, which states that an attack on one Ally shall be considered an attack on all Allies.

That, of course,could put NATO potentially on a war footing against Russia in Syria.

Twenty-six Things About the Islamic State (ISIL) that Obama Does Not Want You to Know About

Recent developments confirm what is known and documented: Washington is behind the Islamic State (ISIS) and at the same time it is behind the moderate Al Qaeda terrorists, which the Obama administration is supporting as part of America’s campaign against the Islamic State (ISIS). And they expect us to believe that they are committed to waging a campaign against terrorists.

The Islamic State (ISIS) was until 2014 called al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI).

Al Nusra is an al Qaeda affiliate which has committed countless atrocities in Syria. It is now considered by the Obama administration as the “Moderate Opposition”.

America’s “anti-terrorist campaign’ consists in supporting a so-called “moderate” Al Qaeda entity (Al Nusra) with a view to going after another al Qaeda entity entitled The Islamic State, formerly designated as Al Qaeda in Iraq.

“Al Qaeda is going after Al Qaeda”, and both wings of al Qaeda are supported covertly by US intelligence.

Why Does ISIS Only Fight Israel’s Enemies? And Why Do They Have So Much In Common?

In recent weeks, the mass extermination of Palestinian civilians by Israel has been bumped out of the headlines by an absurdly violent and savage Jihadist group called Islamic State Of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS). Evidence is emerging that the group is a proxy or at least founded by Mossad, American, and British intelligence, and the one thing that is known beyond reasonable doubt is that the brutal Salafists are an offshoot of the Western, Israeli, and Turkish backed Syrian rebels. Utilizing high tech American weapons (according to witnesses), they have managed to conquer numerous cities in Iraq and surrounding territories, waging a brutal war against “infidels” who for the most part, happen to be fellow Muslims or Christians. When seeing this tragic situation unfold, it is hard not to draw parallels with Israel- a nation ISIS has made clear they prefer to ignore in order to behead, rape and torture civilians.

Clinton's vote on Iraq invasion criticized at Democratic debate

U.S. Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton was criticized in a debate on Saturday for her 2003 vote backing the U.S. invasion of Iraq, with rival Bernie Sanders linking it to regional chaos that aided the rise of Islamic State militants.

The day after a series of deadly bomb and gun attacks that killed at least 129 people in Paris, Sanders said the invasion was "one of the worst foreign policy blunders in the modern history of the United States."

"I would argue that the disastrous invasion of Iraq, something that I strongly opposed, unraveled the region immensely, and led to the rise of Al Qaeda and to ISIS," said Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont.

After Paris Attacks, Will Obama Fight ISIS With Ground Troops In Iraq Or Syria? How National Security Could Change After France Death Toll

Hours after the Islamic State carried out its promise to fill the street of Paris with dead bodies, it appeared certain Saturday that U.S. officials would have to ramp up efforts to eradicate the militant group after a year-long airstrike campaign has failed to stop ISIS from recruiting new fighters or terrorizing citizens across the globe, lawmakers and national security experts said. The horrific assault in Paris Friday night left more than 500 injured or killed after ISIS radicals carried out multiple assaults in a series of shootings and explosions that unfolded at a bar, restaurant, stadium and concert venue.

America: Your Solidarity with Paris is Embarrassingly Misguided

Without question, I mourn for Paris’ recent victims and their families — and I would never claim knowledgeable firsthand experience of the same. But I refuse — despite my partial French heritage — to cloak myself in nationalism of any stripe or star, particularly not now. Because, besides victims in Paris, an incomprehensibly astronomic number of people have been grieving loss of the highest order for some time — in places whose names roll off our tongues as if it’s accepted that violence simply happens there — and a majority likely couldn’t guessthe colors on these victims’ flags.

You see, I also mourn for those killed mere hours before Paris crumbled into chaos, in strikingly similar attacks in Beirut.

I mourn the hundreds of thousands displaced or killed in Syria, no matter their pledged allegiance. No matter their professed religion. No matter.

Nov 15 07:10


Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is looking like the US never learned to quit while they are ahead. Not only is the independent media denouncing the Paris attacks as a false-flag, but my wife and I went to a local flea market yesterday and everyone there was talking about Paris being a false flag attack and worried about more wars started by the US.

Gen. Allen: US May Be Condemned to Fight ISIS Forever

Interviewed on CNN today, retired Gen. John Allen, recently replaced as the US Special Envoy to the war against ISIS, offered an extremely pessimistic assessment of the war, saying that the US needs to address the causes of “symptoms” like ISIS and al-Qaeda, and failing that will be “condemned to fight forever.”

Historically, the US hasn’t been particularly good at even identifying the causes of insurgencies against US-backed governments, let alone making any credible efforts to address those problems. Notably, Gen. Allen didn’t make any real effort to identify the causes he thought the US needs to address either.

Rather, Allen simply insisted that the locals “understand the region better” and that the US should “work closely with them” to resolve the underlying conditions which are fueling growing recruitment to such Islamist factions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem no one in the US civilian government or military wants to address is the problem of US military interventionism, coupled with setting up tinpot dictators who are completely unresponsive to the needs of those they govern: it is that simple.

One of the fastest ways to get rid of terrorism against America or American interests would be to not muck about in other people's countries, expropriating resources to which the US has no moral right.

Of COURSE, the vote would be "unwelcome", because it would ultimately draw American citizens' attention to the reality that it is, in fact, the US government which is supporting, supplying, and funding ISIS!!

The “War On Terror” Is The Hoax Foundation Of The Police/Spy State — Paul Craig Roberts

The “war on terror” was a hoax. Americans were deceived by policymakers, who are pursuing a hegemonic agenda. The American people were too trusting and too gullible and, consequently, Americans were easily betrayed by Washington and by the presstitute media.

The consequences of the deceit, gullibility, and betrayal are horrendous for Americans, for millions of peoples in the Middle East, Africa, Ukraine, and for Washington’s European vassals.

The consequences for Americans are an aborted Constitution, a police/spy state and rising resentment and hatred of America around the world.

The consequences for peoples in Somolia, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Pakistan, Syria, Palestine, and Ukraine have been massive deaths and dislocations, infrastructure destruction, internal conflicts, birth defects, invasions, bombings, drones. Millions of peoples have been murdered by Washington’s pursuit of hegemony, and millions have been turned into refugees.

Pentagon Ready to Pay for the Iraqi Civilians It Kills. Next Step: Admit It Kills Civilians.

Some 3,586 airstrikes later, the American military is finally gearing up to compensate the families of Iraqis killed by American bombs in the ISIS war.
The Pentagon is about to get a $5 million fund to pay the Iraqi families of civilians killed by American airstrikes. It’s a big change for the U.S. military, which has yet to publicly acknowledge accidentally killing or wounding any innocents in the country even after 3,586 airstrikes targeting the so-called Islamic State.

Buried deep in the annual defense budget bill, passed by the House Thursday, is $5 million set aside for the Defense Department to use in Iraq if the U.S. military harms a civilian or destroys their property.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Somehow, the notion of the reality that one cannot win what is essentially a ground war from the air, hasn't really sunk in to the mindset of Pentagon leadership.

One would think that after the debacle which was the Vietnam War, such an understanding would have permeated military thinking, but it has not.

And extrajudicial assassinations have absolutely no place in American foreign policy, period, end of discussion.

35 Countries Where the U.S. Has Supported Fascists, Drug Lords and Terrorists

The U.S. is backing Ukraine's extreme right-wing Svoboda party and violent neo-Nazis whose armed uprising paved the way for a Western-backed coup. Events in the Ukraine are giving us another glimpse through the looking-glass of U.S. propaganda wars against fascism, drugs and terrorism. The ugly reality behind the mirror is that the U.S. government has a long and unbroken record of working with fascists, dictators, druglords and state sponsors of terrorism in every region of the world in its elusive but relentless quest for unchallenged global power.
Shop ?

Behind a firewall of impunity and protection from the State Department and the CIA, U.S. clients and puppets have engaged in the worst crimes known to man, from murder and torture to coups and genocide. The trail of blood from this carnage and chaos leads directly back to the steps of the U.S. Capitol and the White House.

FLASHBACK: Sleeping With the Devil: How U.S. and Saudi Backing of Al Qaeda Led to 9/11

A little disingenuous or CUDP on the blowback angle but I like the pics and the vids!

Preface: The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan – Lt. General William Odom – noted:

Because the United States itself has a long record of supporting terrorists and using terrorist tactics, the slogans of today’s war on terrorism merely makes the United States look hypocritical to the rest of the world.

Odom also said:

By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation.

FLASHBACK: Al Qaeda and the “War on Terrorism”

Not to worry. Cause they are back. Those pesky Russkies are are enemy once again. Moderate terrorists are our friends!Orwell must be rolling in his grave.

One of the main objectives of war propaganda is to “fabricate an enemy”. The “outside enemy” personified by Osama bin Laden is “threatening America”.

Pre-emptive war directed against “Islamic terrorists” is required to defend the Homeland. Realities are turned upside down. America is under attack.

In the wake of 9/11, the creation of this “outside enemy” has served to obfuscate the real economic and strategic objectives behind the war in the Middle East and Central Asia. Waged on the grounds of self-defense, the pre-emptive war is upheld as a “just war” with a humanitarian mandate.

FLASHBACK: The CIA's "Operation Cyclone" - Stirring The Hornet's Nest Of Islamic Unrest

Zbigniew Brzezinski not long ago revealed that on July 3, 1979, unknown to the American public and Congress, President Jimmy Carter secretly authorized $500 million to create an international terrorist movement that would spread Islamic fundamentalism in Central Asia and "de-stabilise" the Soviet Union...
The CIA called this Operation Cyclone and in the following years poured $4 billion into setting up Islamic training schools in Pakistan (Taliban means "student").

Young zealots were sent to the CIA's spy training camp in Virginia, where future members of al-Qaeda were taught "sabotage skills" - terrorism.

Others were recruited at an Islamic school in Brooklyn, New York, within sight of the fated Twin Towers.

Nov 10 10:55


One thing you might have noticed of late is that Washington seems to be preparing the US public for the possibility that the Pentagon is going to put “boots on the ground” in Syria and by “boots on the ground,” we mean more than 50 “advisors.”

Indeed, it’s the same story in Iraq and as we noted after the release of helmet cam footage depicting an ISIS prison raid in the northern Iraqi town of Huwija late last month, releasing battlefield GoPro shots is probably i) an effort to convince whatever partners the US has left in the Mid-East that Washington is still effective at “fighting” terror, and ii) a prelude to stepped up ground ops.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: it appears that American leadership is hell-bent on a ground war in Syria with Russia, spreading globally, believing that the military-industrial complex will kick-start the American economy.

As I have observed many times while posting, just because something is the most pig-headedly, ham-fisted stupid thing the US government could possibly do, is, unfortunately, no guarantee that it won't do it; logic, and this administration, have not had a really good relationship in a long time, and this rhetoric telegraphs the US government's bloodlust for yet more war.

Those who have been, or will be, deployed to Syria are the sacrificial lambs, led to slaughter, for the purpose of demonizing Russia; and when the first one of them gets killed or wounded, the US government and military will waive the proverbial bloody shirt, and scream "This is all Russia's fault!!", and we're off and running against Russia

But there is a problem here; Russia was invited by the Syrian government to get rid of the terrorists; the US government was not.

So now, we will be technically at war with the Syria government AND the Russian government, simultaneously?!?

And by supporting the Kurds in Syria, are we not ticking off Turkey's Edrogan?

Concerning Iraq, the Iraqi government has not asked for American boots on the ground to aid them against ISIS; in fact, they have turned around planes with US weapons, because government officials know that those weapons are intended for ISIS, and funded and provided by the US government, to again destabilise the government.

And does anyone in government happen to remember the Iranian Shiite cleric, Muqtada Al Sadr, founder of the Mahdi Army in Iraq?!? Just how completely thrilled is this guy going to be with the announcement of yet more US military boots on the ground in Iraq, and just how quickly could he bring the Mahdi Army back together, when that happens?!?

The short answer is, not very long at all.

I would strongly caution all those in Congress, the White House, State Department and Pentagon, against this course of action; and the reason I would do that is that the US military, in this time in its history, doesn't have the money, the manufacturing, or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia. Such a conflict could very well go nuclear.

The unintended consequences of this happening would be both horrific... and irreversible.

Campaign 2016: Hillary Clinton Pitched Iraq As 'A Business Opportunity' For US Corporations

When then-U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton voted to authorize the war against Iraq in 2002, she justified her support of the invasion as a way to protect America’s national security. But less than a decade later, as secretary of state, Clinton promoted the war-torn country as a place where American corporations could make big money.

“It's time for the United States to start thinking of Iraq as a business opportunity," she said in a 2011 speech.

Heartbreaking: Here's what a U.S. soldier said when asked to justify the war on terror

'You kill. Watch friends die. It's usually quick, almost never quiet, but for the rest of your life, when you remember sitting at the bar with them, they're blown open. You picture the nights you spent downtown at Scruffy Murphy's, but instead of the stupid hookah shell necklace, your boy's jaw is blown off, and his left eye is ruined, and he's screaming. You fight, you kill, you watch friends die, and you notice a distinct lack of change. You kick in doors and tell terrified women to sit on the floor while you and your friends ransack their home, tearing the place apart, because they might be hiding weapons. There is no reason to believe this house in particular is enemy, same for the next one, and the one after that, or the seven before; they just happened to be there, and maybe they had weapons. Probably not, they almost never did.'

Iraq Expels US-Led Coalition Planes with Arms Cargoes

The Iraqi defense ministry announced in a statement that two Canadian and Swedish planes which were carrying arms to the Kurdistan region illegally were discharged and returned to their bases in Kuwait and Turkey. According to the statement, "upon the order of the commander-in-chief of the Iraqi armed forces and after several days of confiscation, the two planes were allowed to leave Baghdad international airport with all their cargos to their bases in Kuwait and Turkey". Early this month, the Iraqi government had announced that it had seized two planes of the US-led anti-ISIL coalition member states that were carrying weapons to the Kurdistan Region without prior coordination or information of Baghdad... Zameli called on the Iraqi foreign ministry to question the international coalition in this regard and warn the coalition members to avoid such moves in the future.

FLASHBACK 2012 - Senate Candidate Calls Congressman a "Whore for AIPAC" During Live TV Debate

Nov 07 10:11


A bipartisan group of thirty-five Democrats and Republicans sent a letter to Ryan calling for the vote.

“We do not share the same policy prescriptions for U.S. military engagement in the region, but we do share the belief that it is past time for the Congress to fulfill its obligations under the Constitution and vote on an AUMF that clearly delineates the authority and limits, if any, on U.S. military engagement in Iraq, Syria and the surrounding region,” the group wrote in a letter sent to the Speaker on Friday.

A call for a new authorization for use of military force (AUMF) arose on November 4 when House members, primarily Democrats, argued the president lacks the constitutional authority to send special operations forces to Syria.

The Obama administration argues it has the authority to send troops under the 2001 AUMF designed to respond to the Sept. 11 attacks.

Republicans, led by South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, believe a new AUMF is not required.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Senator Lindsay Graham: you demonstrate, through your indefatigable fear-mongering and war-mongering, that you are completely out of touch with both the people you allegedly represent, and the tone of the American public in general.

After the serial debacles which have been Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, and Afghanistan, the American people are both war-weary, and war-skeptical.

I would like to suggest that unfortunately, you didn't get the memo: the government of Bashar Al Assad invited Russia to help get rid of the terrorists; we have not been invited to that particular dance, nor have we been asked to intervene (again) in Iraq.

I politely would like to suggest, regarding Iraq and Syria, that those who do not remember history are doomed to repeat it.

As it appears that you are dealing, not only with a nasty case of warlust, but also SMD (selective memory disorder), let me remind you of one guy who was an absolute game changer toward the end of the US occupation of Iraq.

Do you remember Moqtada Al Sadr, the Shiite cleric who founded the Mahdi Army in Iraq?!? Do you remember that he announced to the US government that if the US military was not out of Iraq at precisely the stated time agreed up in the SOFA agreement with Iraq, his militias would consider all US military personnel fair game for attacks?!?

Sir, just how completely happy is this guy going to be to understand that we are re-invading Iraq, and just how long do you think it would take him to communicate with his militia captains, and get that particular gang back together?!? Were I a betting person, Senator Graham, I would suggest: not long at all.

I'm just saying, sir.

And as to Syria: the overt invasion, by ordering "boots on the ground" here (no matter HOW President Obama describes them) has been an overt act of war against the Syrian government, and has laid bare, for all the world to see, the brutal, mercenary mind set of American foreign policy makers.

The objective here, is to oust Syria's President Assad at all costs; however, I would most soberly caution you, that this regime change like others the US government has "arranged for" in the last couple of decades, will probably result in unmitigated disaster for the Syrian people.

And at the end of the day, should the Syrian people not be allowed to decide their own destiny, at a polling place, with international observers, assuring that the vote was free and fair?!?

How the hell, Senator Graham, does this government believe it has some kind of "divine right" to interfere with internal Syria politics?!? Remember that concept of "divine right"?!? That was something which literally sickened our Founding Fathers (and the women who loved them.)

Oh, and there is the minor issue of the 5,000 lb gorilla, snoozing on the Bechstein piano; that is Russia. In over a month, Russia has been able to drive out more terrorists in Syria (including those sponsored by the US) than the US government has done in a year.

Going head to head with Russia in military combat in Syria is probably one of the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly idiotic thing the US government could do right now; but unfortunately, just because an action on the part of the US government could be honestly characterized as such, is absolutely no guarantee the US government will not do it.

As you well, or should, know, the US military doesn't have the money, the manufacturing, or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia; that's the brutal, God's truth, and you know it.

But your shilling for more war in Syria, and against Russia, has a very logical grounding in the fact that the US economy is due for one, industrial strength implosion, and soon; a war might distract Americans from the fact that Congress and the Federal Reserve have been running a ponzi scheme for decades.

Or, it might not.

Why British Haste on Plane Bomb Theory?

Cameron and Obama are evidently being fed intelligence assessments of a bomb being stowed in the airplane's hold by terrorists.

British officials have made an unseemly leap to speculate on a terrorist plot in the Russian airliner crash over Sinai last weekend.

And Russia has understandably reacted furiously to the speculation, saying that it is too early to make such an assessment when crash investigators have not even compiled, let alone evaluated, evidence.

American officials, including President Barack Obama, are also now echoing the British claims of a bomb on the plane. The question is: why the haste?

The notion that the Pentagon would dare declare its own no-fly zone over northern Syria to protect a gaggle of “moderate rebels” from Russian and Syrian Arab Army (SAA) bombing is preposterous.

Fresh from its thunderous humiliation by the Taliban; its “liberation” of Libya for the benefit of militia hell; and while Russia was bombing the hell out of a Salafi-jihadi/”moderate rebel” constellation in Syria, NATO – in search for a “360-degree” response to Russia – resorted to invading… Spain.

Top General Admitting That Obama Knowingly Armed ISIS! How Is This Not Blatant Treason?

A U.S. General has made a shocking revelation saying that early on President Obama knew that ISIS was growing but made a “willful decision” to let the radical terror group grow unmolested and even supplied arms that he knew would go to ISIS.

Former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency Michael Flynn told al Jazeera that Obama knew he was helping ISIS to grow but decided to do it anyway. Flynn spoke of the decision to arm opposition to Syria’s Bashar al-Assad that the administration decided to continue despite warnings that those weapons would fall into the hands of radicals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How is this not treason?

At the very least giving weapons to moderates knowing they will be transferred to ISIS is a violation of the Luga-Obama Act of 2007, which imposes strict legal controls on where and to whom the US sends weapons!

“As the ISIL commanders captured in Iraqi popular forces’ recent military operations have confessed, the US supports for the terrorist groups are not limited to the dispatch of logistical support,” Al-Hosseini told FNA on Sunday.

He reiterated that the US has provided the ISIL with intelligence about the Iraqi forces’ positions and targets.

“ISIL commanders trusted the US officials who had assured them that the Iraqi forces would not attack Fallujah because the US had urged the Iraqi government to prevent the popular forces from entering Fallujah and raid Beiji instead; hence the terrorists left Fallujah for Beiji to stay on the alert in there,” Al-Hosseini added.

Are you Confused by the Middle East? The Criminal Record of US Foreign Policy

The US, France, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, and the Gulf monarchies have all in the recent past supported al Qaeda and/or the Islamic State (ISIS) with arms, money, and/or manpower.
The first example of this was in 1979 when the United States began covert operations in Afghanistan, six months before the Russians arrived, promoting Islamic fundamentalism across the southern tier of the Soviet Union against “godless communism”. All the al-Qaeda/Taliban shit then followed.

Towards a reversal of the situation in the Near East

The days of the « Arab Spring » are almost over. As of now, the White House and the Kremlin are redesigning the contours of the « Greater Middle East ». However, their agreement, which was concluded before the Russian military intervention in Syria, could still be modified by the changes in the balance of power. There is no proof that Moscow will accept the stabilisation of Syria or ignore the partition of Turkey and Saudi Arabia which are soon to begin. In any event, the coming upheaval will modify the status quo which has been in place for the last five years. Most of the powers implicated are therefore scrambling to change sides before the other players.

Iraq Turns On America: “Iraqi People Have Started To Feel That The US Isn't Serious About Fighting ISIS"

If you frequent these pages, you’re well aware of why the US decided to release helmet cam footage of a raid on an ISIS prison in the northern Iraqi town of Huwija.

Put simply, Baghdad has had just about enough of Washington’s “strategy” for fighting terror in the country and when PM Haider al-Abadi said he would welcome Russian airstrikes, the US panicked.

The Caliph at the gates of Vienna

History has a jolly habit of repeating itself as surrealist farce. Is it 1683 all over again, with the Ottoman Empire laying siege to Vienna just to be defeated by the “infidels” at the last minute?

No; it’s 2015 and a Caliph simulacrum – Ibrahim, a.k.a. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi — has prompted a gaggle of world powers, lesser powers and assorted minions to converge to Vienna to discuss how to defeat him.

Westphalians, we got a problem. None of this makes any sense if Iran is not at the table discussing a solution for the Syrian tragedy. Moscow knew it from the start. Washington — reluctantly — had to admit the obvious. But the problem was never Iran. The problem is the ideological matrix of goons who metastasize into Caliphs: Saudi Arabia.

As we know by now, the Soviet threat was a farce the western people – mostly the people of the US and Europe – were made to believe by a massive and continuous propaganda campaign, a western propaganda of lies – not unlike today’s anti-Russia, anti-China supra-multi-billion dollars Zionist-Anglo-Saxon media misinformation.

Belated admission of a war crime: When would “misrepresenting the truth" actually be called an outright lie?

“Dr Blix told me that Tony Blair’s claims about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction were simply not an accurate reflection of the intelligence provided to the British government.
"The big difference in the British dossier,” Dr Blix told me, “was that they simply asserted that these items are there. But when Mr Blair asserts that there were weapons, well that's an assertion and it was not supported by evidence. Both the UK and the US replaced question marks by exclamation marks. I certainly think it was a misrepresentation.

US Sending Special Forces to Aid ISIS in Syria

US forces who obey these illegal orders are giving aid and comfort to the enemies of America! Treason doth prosper when none dare call it treason. This is TREASON most foul!

Washington is desperate to find ways of countering Russia’s effective Middle East agenda - combining formidable military might against terrorism with trustworthy diplomacy, proving Moscow is a valued partner, polar opposite Washington, a rogue bully.

Obama’s pledge about no “American combat troops fighting on foreign soil” proved another of his many Big Lies.
US Special Forces will be deployed to northern areas - illegally without Damascus or Security Council authorization.

Unannounced greater numbers may join them. Their mission: aiding ISIS and other takfiri terrorists, putting them in harm’s way.

The Empire of Chaos is in a Jam

The no-fly zone in Syria already exists. It is run by Russia and Washington is unable to jam it.

NATO is desperate. The Pentagon is desperate. Imagine waking up one day in Washington and Brussels just to realize Russia has the ability to electronically jam — detect, trace, disable, destroy — NATO electronics within a 600 km range across Syria (and southern Turkey).

Imagine the nightmare of row after row of Russian Richag-AV radar and sonar jamming systems mounted on helicopters and ships jamming everything in sight and finding every available source of electromagnetic radiation. Not only in Syria but also in Ukraine.

Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, commander of U.S. Army units in Europe, was even forced to qualify Russian electronic warfare capabilities in Ukraine as “eye-watering.”

Barack Obama has ordered up to 50 special operations troops to northern Syria, in an apparent breach of his promise not to put US “boots on the ground” to fight Islamic State militants in the country.

The Pentagon has also been “consulting” with the Iraqi prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, to establish a special operations taskforce, with an unspecified number of US forces aiming “to further enhance [US] ability to target Isil leaders and networks” across the Syria border in Iraq, a senior administration official told the Guardian on Friday.

The forces will be supported by an additional deployment of A-10 “Warthog” attack aircraft and F-15 jets to Nato’s Incirlik base in Turkey, in what amounts to a major escalation of US force levels in the region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A "major escalation", putting in 50 Special Ops Forces, with A1-Warthogs, and F-15 jets?!?

This is not a "major escalation" again ISIS; it is, however, the start of a major escalation against Russian troops in the area, very much ratcheting up the possibility of direct military conflict with Russia in Syria, and soon, Iraq.

Apparently, the US government is hell-bent to engineer a war against Russia or China (or both) to distract furious Americans when the economy falls flat on its keister, and cannot be resurrected.

And as reported today at

This comes just hours after Moscow reminded the world that if you haven't received an official invitation from Bashar al-Assad, you are not welcome to come to the party. Here's Reuters, citing Tass: Russia's deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Friday that no country could use military force in Syria without first securing the agreement of the Syrian government, the TASS news agency reported. TASS said Ryabkov was responding to a question about the prospect of the United States launching a ground operation in Syria. "The question of using military force in any form without the agreement of Damascus is for us unacceptable," it quoted him as saying. Make no mistake, this will be a disaster. If US spec ops are placed with the YPG, it will run afoul of Washington's coordination with Turkey just two days before an election that revolves around Erdogan's attempt to paint the Kurds as a threat to national security. If the Pentagon embeds US troops with the Free Syrian Army, well then they'll be engaging Hezbollah and the Quds directly. Of course no matter where Obama decides to place the troops, they'll be at risk of getting hit by Russian airstrikes and the consequences of that speak for themselves...

It appears that these Special Ops placed in Syria are Obama's "sacrificial lambs" with which he is hoping and praying to engender the outrage of US citizens, when this country has been warned unequivocally, that US troops in Syria, who were not invited to this conflict, are fair game for Russian military countermeasures.

And the other reason, of course, for boots on the ground in Syria, with supporting air power, is to shore up the American trained, funded, and armed ISIS.

The US government has entered its "rogue nation" phase if its existence; I am ashamed of this government, its lies, and double dealings, both to the American national and the world.

Whatever credibility the US government has ever had, has been lost forever; you cannot believe a word coming out of the mouths of the governmental spokespeople, or their corporate whorespondents, eager to regurgitate whatever they are told to regurgitate.

I would like to fire every politician in this country,immediately, at every level, and start over, and have the people who replace them understand, very clearly, that the Constitution and Bill of Rights are the real "Contract with America"
