NSA bot MonsterMind can wage cyberwar on its own – Snowden

The US National Security Agency owns a “MonsterMind” program designed to prevent foreign cyberattacks and, also, automatically strike back, former NSA contractor Edward Snowden told Wired magazine.

In his latest revelation, Snowden said that the defense software in the works would robotically hunt for the launches of foreign cyberattacks against the US and neutralize them.

The Greenhouse propaganda—How Gazan history is being rewritten to dehumanize Palestinians

In mid-December, the greenhouses made their first export of 8 tons of peppers. Speaking to the Associated Press about the success of the project, Jabir said, “It makes us proud. This land was a symbol of occupation and many people were doubting our ability to rehabilitate [it], but now we have proven that we, as Palestinians, are able to manage our lives, to farm our land and to do our own business.”

That hope and pride soon turned to despair. According to Jabir, in order for the project to be successful, it would require moving at least 25 truckloads of produce a day through the Karni crossing. On rare days when the Karni crossing was functioning smoothly he was only able to move 3 truckloads. A crossing that was supposed to be open 24/7, per an international agreement to which Israel was party, was only open sporadically and unpredictably. Israel cited security concerns. The Palestine Economic Development Corporation and its Israeli distribution partner Adafresh were losing hundreds of thousands of dollars every week.

ISIS, Israel and US duplicity

Mainstream media wants us to believe ISIS sprung up out of a hole in the ground and became powerful enough to take over large cities without any assistance from the big powers. The ineptitude of that narrative is an insult to everyone’s intelligence.

The US government claims it has launched several air strikes against ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) militants in Iraq. These are the same ISIS militants that the US and its client states are supporting in Syria; the same breed and stock of militants they let loose like wild dogs to lynch Gaddafi and wreak havoc in Libya.

Obama's War on Iraq

For the third time since January 1991, America is at war with Iraq. It's ongoing lawlessly.

No nation may attack another except in self-defense. None may do so without Security Council authorization. None exists. Obama is a war criminal multiple times over.

Bombing Iraq adds another crime to his rap sheet. Reasons given don't wash. US involvement has nothing to do with humanitarian intervention or responsibility to protect.

Washington Chokes Truth With Lies — Paul Craig Roberts

Are Western propagandists fooling anyone but themselves?

The latest absurdity coming out of Ukraine, the EU and Washington is that the humanitarian aid that Russia and the Red Cross are trucking into the former Russian territories that comprise eastern Ukraine is a trick, a deception, a pretext for Russia’s invasion forces. Such a preposterous lie tells us that Western propagandists have no respect whatsoever for the intelligence of Western peoples.

Even a moron should understand that if Russia wants to send military forces into Ukraine, Russia doesn’t need any pretext, much less a joint humanitarian venture with the Red Cross. The eastern Ukraine, following Crimea’s lead, has already voted both independence from Kiev and in favor of rejoining Russia. If Russia needed an excuse, the decisions by the eastern Ukrainians made months ago suffice. But Russia needs no excuse to rescue Russians from being slaughtered by Washington’s stooges like Palestinians in Gaza.

Iraq and the War Cabal in Washington

With a series of air strikes beginning Friday and continuing through the weekend, the United States has gone to war again in Iraq. This new imperialist military adventure has been launched in defiance of overwhelming popular opposition and without a shred of legal or constitutional authority.

The decision to launch a new war was made by a handful of strategists of US imperialist policy within the military/intelligence apparatus, in league with the corporate and financial elite. It was made behind the backs of the American people, who have absolutely no say in the policies, including going to war, that impact their lives.

ISIS in Iraq stinks of CIA/NATO ‘dirty war’ op

by William Engdahl

For days now, since their dramatic June 10 taking of Mosul, Western mainstream media have been filled with horror stories of the military conquests in Iraq of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, with the curious acronym ISIS. ISIS, as in the ancient Egyptian cult of the goddess of fertility and magic. The media picture being presented adds up less and less.

Details leaking out suggest that ISIS and the major military ‘surge’ in Iraq – and less so in neighboring Syria – is being shaped and controlled out of Langley, Virginia, and other CIA and Pentagon outposts as the next stage in spreading chaos in the world’s second-largest oil state, Iraq, as well as weakening the recent Syrian stabilization efforts.

A month of solidarity in London — does the BBC get the message?

Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of London last Saturday (August 9), honoring the call for a global “day of rage” in response to the ongoing Israeli atrocities in Gaza. The organizers estimate that 150,000 protesters attended, making it the biggest Gaza-solidarity demonstration ever to take place in Britain.

The organizers set a precedent by choosing to launch the demonstration from the headquarters of the BBC in London. The choice was justified, as it reflected the common sentiments shared by almost everyone who’s followed the news organ closely. For weeks, the anger at the “balanced” coverage the BBC claims to produce, has been building steadily, as each day brought with it more bad news from Gaza. To quote Tariq Ali in his interview with the BBC’s Mark Sanders: “we shouldn’t underestimate the anger with the BBC at its coverage of the Palestine-Israel conflict. In all my experience, I have never known a demonstration to begin outside the BBC headquarters; that’s how angry people are…”

Tunnels-to-kindergartens propaganda Netanyahu peddled to NYT and CNN is exploded by Israeli news site

One of the most important strikes in the propaganda war for Israel in the last month was dealt by the New York Times and CNN when they ran long pieces giving credence to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s claim that Hamas was building tunnels out of Gaza aimed at kindergartens in nearby kibbutzes.

Back on July 22, Netanyahu asserted– on the basis of this cartoon drawing he tweeted– that the tunnels were aimed at Israeli kindergartens.

In fact (and as we reported), the only Israelis attacked from the tunnels were Israeli soldiers. But a week after Netanyahu’s statement, both the Times and CNN took the prime minister’s claim at face value. The Times’s piece, “Tunnels Lead Right to Heart of Israeli Fear” gave priority to rumors over actual information, and reported that “one tunnel was found over the weekend” in Kibbutz Be’eri.

Hatreds spawned by the West - the myth of the intolerant Middle East

The latest US bombing of Iraq is claimed to be a defence of the Yazidi people. This religious minority follows a version of Zoroastrianism, which was the religion of the Persian Empire before the rise of Islam.

The Middle East is often portrayed as a place torn apart by deep-seated hatreds and senseless wars fuelled by religion. The very existence of such communities as the Yazidi and Iraqi Christians shows that its history has been very different.

The Palestinian Question, a poem


The Palestinian Question
written even as Gaza is being bombed
again, like some Polish ghetto

to, when and no matter how frightening,
abandon that civilized ruth --

(useful here obviously not whatsoever )
and endeavor to answer with truth --

to, by the lies that are daily invented,
know what questions are once again brought;

to, by abstractions strategic, erstwhile consented,
know what answers again will be wrought;

to, though that answer be yet intuition,
yet be coarse, in part, biased, or slight,

know that facts can, if careful with sources,
be startled squarely into the light.

the power
of a people it repents me are mine
of Zion, a cancerous ill:

the horror
of a parent's cries in Palestine
whose child this answer will kill.

NYT Discovers Ukraine’s Neo-Nazis at War

Now, as the Ukrainian military tightens its noose around the remaining rebel strongholds, battering them with artillery fire and aerial bombardments, thousands of neo-Nazi militia members are again pressing to the front as fiercely motivated fighters determined to kill as many ethnic Russians as they can. It is a remarkable story but one that the mainstream U.S. news media would prefer not to notice.

The New York Times reported almost in passing on Sunday that the Ukrainian government’s offensive against ethnic Russian rebels in the east has unleashed far-right paramilitary militias that have even raised a neo-Nazi banner over the conquered town of Marinka, just west of the rebel stronghold of Donetsk.

Eric Margolis: What If There's a Real War in Ukraine?

Russia and the West are at war – over fruits, veggies, pork and bank loans. The cause is Ukraine, a vast emptiness formerly unknown to the western world, but now deemed a vital national security interest worthy of a risking a very scary war.

Economic embargos such as those launched by the US against Russia may seem relatively harmless. They are not. Trade sanctions are a form of strategic warfare that is sometimes followed by bullets and shells.

Think, for good example, of the 1940 US embargo against Japan that led Tokyo’s fateful decision to go to war rather than face slow, economic strangulation. How many Americans know that President Roosevelt closed the Panama Canal to Japanese shipping to enforce demands that Tokyo get out of Manchuria and China?

As Obama Broadens Iraq Goals, Escalation Seems Inevitable

President Obama’s goals in Iraq continue to grow every time he gives a speech, and the shifting sands are giving hawks more ammo in their constant push to escalate the new US war as much and as quickly as possible.

Obama’s goals have gone from protecting Irbil to protecting Irbil and Baghdad, and now to prevent the creation of an Islamic caliphate in Iraqi territory, as well as keeping all “strategic” sites in the nation from ISIS control. That’s a big shift, in only about 72 hours since he announced the war.

Retired Gen. Carter Ham today insisted that the latest US goals are going to be “very difficult” to pull off with only the 108 warplanes involved in the air campaign, and will likely require troops on the ground.

Why the F-35 has been buried in a black hole

Somewhere in Ottawa, unknown to the outside world, there is a black hole -- a secret place where the government consigns toxic ideas, ideas that it dares not implement, yet cannot bring itself to kill.

The F-35 fighter jet is one such idea. The Harper government has been grappling with it ever since it took office in 2006. It has heard from experts that the super-sophisticated F-35 is not the right plane; that it does not suit Canada's modest military requirements; that its single engine makes it too dangerous for patrols across the country's vast distances; and that its humongous cost -- $45 billion or more for 65 aircraft -- puts it well beyond the reach of the budget-conscious Conservatives.

Modi Rewrites India’s Tryst with Destiny (II)

From the American viewpoint, India’s SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization) membership literally caps the trajectory of US-Indian strategic partnership.The message is clear: India is unavailable as a ‘counterweight’ against China or as a silent partner to ‘isolate’ Russia.

The heart of the matter is that the SCO has disallowed a security vacuum appearing in Central Asia, which the NATO could have used as an alibi to step in. Put differently, so long as the SCO is around, NATO’s eastward expansion beyond the Caucasus runs into formidable obstacles.

That is to say, SCO challenges the US strategy to project the NATO as the global security organization that bypasses the United Nations as the provider of security. This is precisely why the US has opposed the SCO and did all it could to debunk the grouping.

Christopher Bollyn - "The Downing of MH17 - Is Israel Involved?"

Furthermore, Yaron Mofaz, a relative of Shaul Mofaz, former chief of staff of the Israeli military, oddly took a photograph of the ill-fated Malaysian plane at the airport in Amsterdam shortly before it was shot down, which he then provided to Reuters.

Yaron Mofaz also happens to be a director of a Mofaz family company that works closely with a company in Florida that owns a former Malaysia Airlines airliner, virtually identical to the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 and MH17.

This Malaysian airliner, it just so happens, was sent to Israel in late 2013 where it was parked in a hangar in Tel Aviv. For these and other reasons it is logical that we consider the possibility that the shooting down of MH17 was an Israeli false-flag operation with a twist.

Therefore, the real question is not whether Israel was involved, but to what degree was Israel involved in the atrocity? -

Australian Jewish lobby got columnist fired over a Gaza cartoon

Australian Jewish groups had slammed the newspaper over Carlton’s July 26 column in which he accused the Zionist entity of “waging its own war of terror on the entire Gaza population”. The column was accompanied by a cartoon (shown above), which was widely condemned as “anti-Jew” by leaders of country’s organized Jewry which also threatened to take legal action against the newspaper under country’s “Hate Law”.

Initially, the newspaper defended the cartoon, explaining that Le Lievre’s drawing was inspired by “news photographs of Israeli Jews seated in chairs and lounges, observing the Israeli shelling of Gaza.”

But then, as expected, the Jewish Lobby invoked the “Six Million Died” smoking gun to demonize the newspaper. The Australian Jewish News wrote: “Not only were we treated to baseless accusations of ‘genocide’ and ‘ethnic cleansing’ on Israel’s part, but then there was a subtle shift. These were crimes being committed by ‘a people with a proud liberal tradition of scholarship and culture, who hold the Warsaw Ghetto and the six million dead of the Holocaust at the centre of their race memory.’

Gaza's Property Ladder - The Sad Reality is That Real Estate is Valued on the Probability that Israel Won't Bomb It

This is a 2013 independent film about the strange property market in Gaza – one in which real estate is valued partially on its likelihood of being bombed by Israel. A sad reality of today's "only democracy in the Middle East" that you won't hear much about on CNN.

Washington’s Diabolical Agenda in Iraq: US Pledges “Humanitarian Airstrikes” against US Sponsored IS Terrorists

The US has pledged assistance for victims of and even possible “airstrikes” against terrorists who have surrounded and threaten to eradicate thousands of religious minorities in Iraq. However, the terrorists themselves are a product of US foreign policy in the Middle East and North Africa, and instrumental in achieving Western objectives across the region. Punitive strikes and aid to the victims of what is essentially a Western mercenary army is part of maintaining plausible deniability.

The birth of modern Israel from Herzl's Zionist vision of a Jewish homeland to today's reality

The written statement was in a letter from British Prime Minister Arthur Balfour to British financier James de Rothschild, often called the "Balfour Declaration". The Balfour letter was the result of prolonged, secret negotiations in Britain and America. It settled on the term "home", a carefully crafted ambiguity, to describe a Jewish community in Palestine. The British interpreted this as a cultural enclave, while the Zionists would ultimately interpret it to mean a Jewish state. Thus, it let some politicians get banker support for their ends, while not committing to a war in Palestine, and let the bankers claim a legal toe-hold from which they could take step (2) toward a Jewish state. The declaration in the Balfour letter says,

"His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."

The Sinking of The Lusitania, America’s Entry into World War I, A Bonanza for Wall Street

On this day 99 years ago, a German U-boat sunk the RMS Lusitania off the southern Irish coast with the loss of 1,195 lives, including 128 Americans. 94 children perished, 31 of them mere babies. This incident became the major catalyst for drawing a reluctant America into the European slaughter pens of World War 1.

But was the sinking of the Lusitania one of those unfortunate acts that occur randomly during war or was there a more sinister and deliberate hand at work?

In a disputed incident like this, one often gets to the truth of the matter by asking the question, “Cui bono?” “Who benefits?” After a detailed examination of the facts, one can only come to the conclusion that it was the banksters who benefitted, and grossly at that.

Wikileaks: Ban Ki-Moon Worked with Israel to Undermine UN Report

The General Secretary of United Nations (UN) Ban Ki-Moon collaborated in secret with Israel and the United States to weaken the effects of a Board of Inquiry's report accusing Israel of human rights violations in Gaza in Dec. 2008 – Jan. 2009. Wikileaks released documents on Friday that revealed that Ban wrote a letter to the UN Security Council asking its members not to take recommendations by the UN Board of Inquiry about Israeli bombings in Gaza into account.

The political dimensions of the current conflict in Iraq

Thus, it is clear that on one side there is the United States, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, other Arabian monarchies and Turkey pressing for the removal of al-Maliki and the creation of a coalition government that would be loyal to the West and the Gulf Coast States; on the other side there is Russia, China, Iran, Syria (although the second is not particularly active) who understood the inherent dangers in the spread of Islamic radicalism and terrorism in the Middle East.

In recent days, the offensive thrust of ISIS has lost momentum. The tactic of “Blitzkrieg” used by the Islamists with the possible fall of Baghdad didn’t succeed. But almost every day they manage to capture at least something, but at the same time, in some places they have been in retreat. In general, the militants halted their assault on Baghdad, focusing instead on oil and gas infrastructure.

Pushing Ukraine to the Brink

by MIKE WHITNEY
“The unipolar world model has failed. People everywhere have shown their desire to choose their own destiny, preserve their own cultural identity, and oppose the West’s attempts at military, financial, political and ideological domination.”
- Vladimir Putin

Washington’s policy in Ukraine is such a mess, it really makes one wonder about the competence of the people who come up with these wacko ideas. It’s crazy.

Europe and Russia are a perfect fit. Europe needs gas to heat its homes and run its machinery. Russia has gas to sell and needs the money to strengthen its economy. It’s a win-win situation. What Europe and Russia don’t need is the United States. In fact, the US is the problem. As long as US meddling persists, there’s going to be social unrest, division, and war. It’s that simple.

BEX ALERT - ISIS is beheading children, and Obama drops two bombs

Would you like more detail on the evil we face? How about the fact that ISIS is actually beheading children.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How about stolen Kuwaiti incubators, the lie that tricked America into the first invasion of Iraq? Or Saddam's nuclear weapons, the lie that tricked America into the second invasion of Iraq? The US government needs to invade Iraq for a third time, to keep Iraq's oil selling only for US dollars and as is the usual pattern, the news is flooded with spectacular stories unsupported by any proof as to why Americans should go along with this third invasion of Iraq. The video of "ISIS" stating they will fly the flag of Allah over the White House has already been exposed as a fraud.

To detect a lie, look for what should be there and isn't, and what is missing from this story is a REASON for ISIS to behead children, knowing that such an act will turn world opinion against them and open the door for a US military invasion. These are not stupid people. Many were armed and trained by the US to use against Syria's Assad. They understand that without popular support from the American people, the US cannot launch another war, especially in an election year. So, why would ISIS hand the US Government any propaganda weapon that would work against them? The answer is, they wouldn't do that.

Look at how many wars were started with lies and deceptions. America was tricked into World War 1 with the claim that Lusitania was not carrying weapons. That was proven a lie when divers entered the hold of the wreck in the 1980s and confirmed the presence of a military cargo, which made Lusitania a legitimate target of war. Or the claim that a Spanish mine sunk the USS Maine in Havana Harbor that led to the Spanish American War? The Captain of the USS Maine insisted that the ship had been destroyed by an onboard fire, but President McKinley, aided by the Hearst newspapers, sold the lie of a Spanish mine to the American people. A later investigation led by Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, the father of America's nuclear Navy, concluded there had been no mine and the Captain of the USS Maine had been telling the truth. Lyndon Johnson escalated the war in Vietnam by claiming the USS Maddox was attacked by Torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, which turned out never top have existed.

Every war in history is started by some leader lying their population into thinking the war is the only possible course of action, and as I mentioned at the top, the two previous invasions of Iraq were launched with hoaxes about stolen incubators and non-existent nuclear weapons.

This is just more of the same USDA Choice Bovine Excrement!

Israel Has Morally Compromised its Supporters

Israel and the West are complicit in mass murder in Gaza. Should they suffer the same fate as Gazans,they won't have any moral recourse.

by Henry Makow PhD.

As friction with Russia threatens to escalate, this isn't a good time for Zionists to embrace the principle of collective punishment and to relinquish their moral authority.

Yet this is exactly what has happened to those who have endorsed Israel's abominable and disproportionate assault on Gaza which has killed 1900 people, 70% of whom were civilians, including 415 children.

Why have Israel's actions been so egregious, given the lack of genuine provocation?

More than 10,000 Gazans have been injured. 373,000 children require psychological support. 500,000 Palestinians have been displaced with 187,000 still living in U.N. emergency shelters. An estimated 10,000 homes have been completely destroyed, and 30,000 homes partially destroyed.

Malaysian press charges Ukraine government shot down MH 17

Well the Malaysians have spoken out! Ukraine shot down their airliner and murdered
hundreds of people in an attempt to start WW3!

By Alex Lantier
9 August 2014

A Thursday article in the New Straits Times, Malaysia’s flagship English-language newspaper, charged the US- and European-backed Ukrainian regime in Kiev with shooting down Malaysian Airlines flight MH 17 in east Ukraine last month. Given the tightly controlled character of the Malaysian media, it appears that the accusation that Kiev shot down MH17 has the imprimatur of the Malaysian state.

The West on the wrong path (says publisher of Germany’s leading financial newspaper Handelsblatt)

Paul Craig Roberts sees the publishing of this article by Gabor Steingart, publisher of Germany’s financial newspaper Handelsblatt, as a hopeful sign that EU residents are awakening to the realization that they are being railroaded by their pusillanimous politicians into another unnecessary war.

If the West had judged the then US government which marched into Iraq without a resolution by the UN and without proof of the existence of “WMDs“ by the same standards as today Putin, then George W. Bush would have immediately been banned from entering the EU. The foreign investments of Warren Buffett should have been frozen, the export of vehicles of the brands GM, Ford, and Chrysler banned.

The American tendency to verbal and then also military escalation, the isolation, demonization, and attacking of enemies has not proven effective. The last successful major military action the US conducted was the Normandy landing. Everything else – Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan – was a clear failure. Moving NATO units towards the Polish border and thinking about arming Ukraine is a continuation of a lack of diplomacy by the military means.

"Humanitarian Emergency" Does Not Suspend the Constitution on War Powers

President Obama gave a speech last night purporting to justify today's U.S. military strikes in Iraq. Unfortunately, the President's speech failed to clearly answer key questions related to the issue of Congressional war powers under the U.S. Constitution and the War Powers Resolution; that is, he failed to clearly explain why his decision to order airstrikes in Iraq without Congressional authorization is Constitutional and legal.

For Mexican geopolitical expert, Alfredo Jalife-Rahme, the simultaneity of the events illuminates their meaning: soon after announcing the creation of an alternative to the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, that is to say the dollar, Russia is having to face at the same time the accusation of having downed the Malaysia Airlines jet, the Israeli attack on Gaza backed by US and UK military intelligence, the chaos in Libya and the Islamic State offensive in the Levant. In addition, in each of these war theaters, the fighting revolves around the control of hydrocarbons, which until now were traded exclusively in dollars.

Washington’s strategic alliance gives carte blanche to Israel

The State of Israel’s ability to flout international law at will is measured in the fact it has ignored or violated 32 UN Security Council resolutions since 1982, more than any other UN member, all as a result of US vetoes.

Compare this to Iraq, which under Saddam [was falsely accused of violating] two UN Security Council resolutions, with the result that two wars were waged against it, along with a 13-year long period of sanctions, and the implementation of a no-fly zone in the north and south of the country.

On Tuesday, July 29, Efrati announced on Facebook that he received information from sources within the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) revealing what he claims to be the real reason for the Shuja'iyya massacre which occurred nine days prior on July 20: namely that civilians were targeted and killed by Israeli soldiers as punishment for the death of soldiers in their units.

‘NYT’ is furiously rewriting history of Gaza conflict

An important journalistic pattern is beginning right now that must be countered by people who care about human rights: The New York Times is trying to rewrite the history of the Gaza conflict to treat it as a cycle of violence set off by Hamas in June by allegedly orchestrating the teen kidnappings on the West Bank– rather than as a war begun by Israel against Hamas. The Times whites out Israel’s interest: to destroy the unity government between Hamas and Fatah that was announced in May, a government the U.S. was prepared to work with, thereby defying Israel.

And as for the seven-year siege of Gaza that has put 1.8 million people in an open-air prison, the Times has nothing to say.

Debt Rattle Aug 7 2014: Europe Teeters On The Edge

What did I call yesterday’s article again? Oh, that’s right, I called it Europe’s Tumbling, Who’s To Blame?. Well, I’m not a seer, or clairvoyant, but I might as well have used that exact same title again today. Because the same theme plays out again. In an piece initially called Europe’s Recovery Menaced by Putin as Ukraine Crisis Bites, later renamed Draghi Outlook Menaced by Putin as Ukraine Crisis Bites (what’s not to love), Bloomberg spills it all:

The crisis in eastern Europe is showing signs of disrupting Mario Draghi’s economic outlook. Evidence is building that the conflict in Ukraine and European Union sanctions against Vladimir Putin’s Russia are undermining a euro-area recovery that the European Central Bank president already describes as weak. With the ECB expected to keep interest rates on hold near zero today and refrain from any new policy measures, Draghi is likely to face questions on how he plans to keep the economy on track.

The ECB may have few tools left to mitigate the impact of political turmoil that European companies from Anheuser-Busch InBev to Siemens say is hurting their business.

The Malaysian Boeing plane that crashed in eastern Ukraine in mid-July, could have been brought down by an air-to-air missile and a cannon of the Su-25 fighter that had been “shadowing it,” The New Straits Times reported on Wednesday citing experts.

Experts believe that MH17 flight was shot down by an air-to-air missile fired from the fighter that later finished it off with a burst of 30mm cannon fire, the newspaper has reported.

According to the experts, if this hypothesis is true, it would explain the bullet holes in some sections of MH17’s fuselage.

“Some showed blast patterns consistent with shrapnel from a proximity-fused weapon while some showed the more precise grouping consistent with that of cannon fire. We’re analyzing this,” said one of the sources, adding that a detailed analysis of the pieces of the jetliner is needed to corroborate this emerging theory.

The Metamorphosis of Bashar al-Assad

Since the retirement of Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez’s death and the interdiction of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to nominate a candidate in Iran’s presidential election, the revolutionary movement is absent a world leader. Or rather, was absent a world leader. However, the incredible tenacity and composure of Bashar al-Assad has made him the only chief executive in the world surviving a concerted attack by a vast colonial coalition led by Washington and beening largely re-elected by his people.

If Obama Thinks He Can Conquer America with the Ebola Fear with Martial Law. It Will Not Be A Cake walk for the Dictator.

Like any other crisis. I do not think the narrative of Ebola or the other illnesses illegal Aliens are spreading among the US population on purpose will not be credible. They will lose the narrative trying to justify a take over because the crisis caused by this Administration for another power grab will crash and burn. This White House no more credibility. The American people have no faith in the leadership of Barrack Obama. Most of the American people see the US government the big threat.

The solution to a possible outbreak is a police state ruled by an iron fist. The problem the United Nations and Barrack Obama is. They are far too removed from reality. If they declared Martial Law because of a Ebola outbreak. How will the nation react?

Australian government unveils sweeping new “terror” powers

The Australian government yesterday announced far-reaching new “anti-terrorism” measures, and, appealed for “national unity” to fight an alleged threat of terrorist atrocities.

For the second time in less than a month, the government seized on the fraudulent pretext of stopping “jihadists” returning from Syria to try to justify draconian provisions that overturn basic legal and democratic rights, further expand the operations of the spy agencies and authorise surveillance of all on-line communications.

A barrage of pro-war propaganda to mark World War I centenary

An extraordinary pro-war propaganda juggernaut has been set in motion in Australia this week, with commemorations held across the country to mark the centenary of World War I.

For the next four years, Australians are to be bombarded with official ceremonies, church services, exhibitions and media coverage, designed to glorify the 1914–18 war, cover up its underlying causes and prepare public opinion, especially young people, for another catastrophic conflict.

Israeli’s Adeptness at Genocide

The Jewish State uses religion as a subterfuge to hide political-military aggrandizement. Nothing quite like this psychotic exhibition of statecraft—and utter desecration of religion per se. To all critics, Israel and its propaganda organs abroad, notably, AIPAC, rush in to charge “self-hating” Jew to silence dissent among Jewish people, while non-Jews are merely and quickly labeled anti-Semites.

The War between Gaza and the Zionists

This war belongs to Obama as much as to anyone because it emerged in the vacuum created by Obama’s laziness and lack of courage in standing up to Netanyahu and the Zionist supporters in the US and in Congress.

Hamas’s fight, which is mainly a struggle to lift the siege of Gaza, is an honorable one. Hamas’s fight possess the dignity which the Israeli brutalizers cannot even imagine. In fact, the Zionists gave up any hope of dignity long before they ethnically cleansed Palestine of most of its indigenous population in 1948.

More thoughtful and better informed observer than Obama and Kerry have more correctly noted that the present waves of Hamas rockets was preceded by a sequence of events which left Hamas with little choice except to resist with their only available means, which is firing rockets into Israel.

What the hell is an Israeli-American?

Mr. Raimondo in a recent article at antiwar.com, in mentioning the Times of Israel article, conveniently now removed from public view, added this comment from the writer of the article when referring to Hamas…..

“Anyone who lives with rocket launchers installed or terror tunnels burrowed in or around the vicinity of their home cannot be considered an innocent civilian.” This was written by an “Israeli-American”.

One is tempted to ask, what the hell is an Israeli-American, where is his allegiance, his loyalty, his respect? Surely such shared allegiances are half of the US problems.

Whereas what was said above may be seen on the surface as a reasonable comment in the Times of Israel, compare the situation in reverse, in or around the vicinity of a Palestinian’s home……………

A Global Legal Intifada

What’s plainly not needed is that various states take the carnage in Gaza to simply make pronouncements denouncing Israel and the United States for political gain without invoking the legal remedies that are available to them to potentially protect Palestinians in Gaza. Of course, such a course will likely mean serious retribution of some sort from Israel and likely the United States.

Obama is a ‘war criminal’ for supporting Israel’s treatment of Palestinians – Cornel West

Professor and political activist Cornel West declared President Barack Obama a “war criminal,” arguing that his support of Israel and his drone policy make him complicit in the deaths of innocent people.

The controversial activist made the comments at a pro-Palestinian rally in Washington, DC on Saturday, according to Talking Points Memo. West began his speech by pointing to the deteriorating situation in Gaza, where more than 1,800 Palestinians and more than 60 Israelis have been killed, criticizing Israel’s offensive in the region in front of a “Free Palestine” banner.

Russia Prepares Large-Scale Invasion: “Battle-ready Force of Infantry, Armor, Artillery, and Air Defense”

A massive buildup on the Ukrainian border in the last 48 hours has seen Russia double its troop levels with 17 additional battalions and has left Western leaders trying to figure out what President Vladimir Putin is planning to do next.

On Tuesday the Russian President called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council to resolve the “humanitarian crisis” in Ukraine that has reportedly left tens of thousands of people displaced because of fighting over the last several months, a move that some in the West see as prelude to a Russian invasion of Ukraine.

An Israeli named Yaron Mofaz took this photo of the Malaysia Airlines plane (MH17) shortly before it was shot down while flying over eastern Ukraine on July 17, 2014.

Yaron Mofaz is also connected to GA Telesis, the Israeli-owned airlines company in Florida that owns a similar Malaysia Airlines plane that is parked in a hangar in Tel Aviv.

So, why did the Israeli Mofaz take a photo of the plane that was shot down in the Ukraine?

Israel and the Erosion of International Humanitarian Law – An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

So, Israeli behavior and U.S. protection of that behavior is a somber message that we have a way to go to overcome our propensity for murder and mayhem. We have managed to establish standards of humanitarian behavior and even embody them in international humanitarian law. We have managed to create an albeit imperfect prototype for enforcement through the UN. But we have yet to overcome the problem of selective application of that law.

Gaza Ceasefire: After 1800+ Dead, What Led Israel to Stop the Assault, and What Comes Next?

After a nearly month-long assault that left at least 1,865 Palestinians dead, Israel has pulled its ground forces from the Gaza Strip under the 72-hour ceasefire that went into effect earlier today. Israeli and Palestinian factions have agreed to attend talks in Cairo on a longer-term agreement. Gaza officials say the vast majority of Palestinian victims were civilians in the Israeli offensive that began on July 8. Israel says 64 of its soldiers and three civilians have been killed. Palestinians are returning to homes and neighborhoods that have seen a massive amount of destruction. Nearly a quarter of Gaza’s 1.8 million resident were displaced during the fighting which destroyed more than 3,000 homes. The ceasefire was reached after international outrage over Palestinian civilian deaths peaked, with even Israel’s chief backer, the United States, criticizing recent Israeli shelling of United Nations shelters that killed scores of displaced Palestinians.

A new analysis of the intelligence and military relationship between the U.S. and Israeli governments—bolstered by new top secret NSA documents leaked by Edward Snowden—exposes the deep complicity of American foreign policy when it comes to enabling Israel's continued occupation of the Palestinian territories and its ongoing aggressive military assault on the Gaza Strip.
