In the Wake of The Mali Terrorist Attacks: Escalation of U.S. and French Military Interventions in Africa?

U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) leader Army General David Rodriguez continues to maintain that the purpose of Washington’s military policy on the continent is to assist nation-states in their efforts to enhance the security capacity of various governments. AFRICOM identifies its purpose as working with African states in the so-called “war on terrorism.”

Nonetheless, the “war on terrorism” is a by-product of successive failed imperialist interventions from Afghanistan to Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen. The so-called “Islamist extremist” organizations were nurtured, funded and coordinated since the early 1980s when the administration of President Jimmy Carter worked vigorously to overthrow the socialist government in Afghanistan which was supported by the former Soviet Union.

Turkey shoots down RUSSIAN jet for violating its air space: Flaming Su-24 fighter spirals into the ground in Syria where rebels capture one pilot and are hunting the other

Turkish military has shot down a Russian war plane near its border to Syria, Ankara and Moscow confirms.

The Russian Sukhoi Su-24 jet was shot down by Turkish F-16 fighter planes on Tuesday morning after violating the country's air space and ignoring nearly a dozen warnings, army officials said.

However, Russia's Ministry of Defence claims the jet was in Syrian airspace, and was shot down from the ground.

Footage shows the plane engulfed in flames as it comes crashing down in Syria's Turkomen Mountains, an area which has been the cause of recent tensions between Turkey and Russia.

Who Has Been Pushing Russia To Go “All In” Against Saudi Arabia and Qatar?

On November 19, 2015 Russia’s pro-Western radio station “Echo of Moscow” published an article on its website that was written by the former economic adviser to the Russian president on the economy Andrei Illarionov, who is now residing in the United States. The article was titled “The next step – a strike on Saudi Arabia?” and was packed with calls to launch air strikes against Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The author underlined the fact that after a series of terrorist attacks in Egypt and France, and the triumphant for Russia G-20 summit in Antalya, in the face of the paralysis of NATO’s forces, the time has come to execute the plans of launching massive strikes on military, infrastructure, energy facilities in Saudi Arabia and Qatar, that were allegedly “cherished for years”.

Myths of Empire

The release of The Man in the High Castle, a streaming film series produced by Amazon and based very loosely on Philip K.

ISIS Coverup: US Centcom Accused Of Lying To President, Congress, Public About Airstrikes, Ground Fight

“...there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist Principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).”

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it as many times as it takes for the naive, largely aloof American public to catch on: the quote excerpted above is the smoking gun when it comes to Washington’s ISIS “strategy.”

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.

Britain's war against ISIS: David Cameron wants to launch airstrikes in Syria in TWO WEEKS

DAVID CAMERON is set to unveil his war plans to help eradicate the depraved Islamic State, with MPs expected to vote in the Commons over British airstrikes in Syria within TWO WEEKS.

The Prime Minister is said to be preparing a "comprehensive" seven-point plan for military intervention against the barbaric terror group, including a blueprint for war-torn Syria’s future.

The first UK jets to strike jihadi targets in the war-torn country would begin within hours of a 'yes' vote.

MPs are expected to vote on extending the RAF action to Syria early next month before Parliament breaks up for Christmas on December 17.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What good, subservient little warmongers those writers are at the UK's "Express"!!

This codswallop, which never even begins to ask the questions of how this group ISIS came to be, or who funds, arms, and trains its members, which is the US government and military.

As reported at globalresearch.ca in May of this year:

While the Western mainstream media and even independent gatekeepers like Noam Chomsky for years spread the lie that any suggestion that the United States and NATO were supporting ISIS was a “conspiracy theory,”recently uncovered and declassified documents from the Defense Intelligence Agency have proven the Western press and the likes of Chomsky wrong and, yet again, the so-called “conspiracy theorists” right. This is because, on May 18, Judicial Watch published a selection of recently declassified documents that were obtained from the US Department of Defense and the US State Department as a result of a lawsuit filed against the US government. The lawsuit and most of the documents contained within the release revolved around the Benghazi scandal but a deeper look into the documents dating back to 2012 reveal an even bigger story – that the US and NATO have admitted in their own documents to supporting al-Qaeda and ISIS in Syria and Iraq. Docs Show Al-Qaeda Involvement From Beginning – No Moderates The documents demolish the “official story” of Western governments promoted from the beginning of the Syrian crisis until the present day – that the “rebellion” was organic, grassroots, and made up of moderates and freedom-loving democracy proponents. The document states unequivocally that “The Salafist [sic] the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria.” It points out that “The West, Gulf countries, and Turkey support the opposition; while Russia, China, and Iran support the regime.” Tellingly, the report then states that “AQI supported the Syrian opposition from the beginning, both ideologically and through the media . . .” Indeed, the documents clearly admit that the crisis unfolding in Syria was never a moderate rebellion fighting for democracy, it was made up of fighters from the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda (al-Qaeda In Iraq/Al-Nusra Front) from the very beginning. US, Turkey, NATO Supporting ISIS and al-Qaeda – Supporting the Creation of Buffer Zones The document continues in its revelations by stating that: Opposition forces are trying to control the eastern areas (Hasaka and Der Zor), adjacent to the western Iraqi provinces (Mosul and Anbar), in addition to neighboring Turkish borders. Western countries, the Gulf states and Turkey are supporting these efforts. This hypothesis is most likely in accordance with the data from recent events, which will help prepare safe havens under international sheltering, similar to what transpired in Libya when Benghazi was chosen as the command center of the temporary government. “Opposition forces,” of course, are al-Qaeda, al-Nusra Front, and ISIS, as mentioned and defined earlier by the DIA document. Thus, any questions of whether or not the US and its NATO/GCC allies have been supporting jihadists and terrorists, should be answered with the admissions made within these pages. If al-Qaeda/ISIS = the “opposition,” then the US support for the “opposition” = US support for al-Qaeda/ISIS.

This copy must be written for the British equivalent to the US's "common core" graduates, who have no capability for critical thinking whatsoever, and when instructed to simply follow orders, they obey.

Obama Dropped Leaflets to Give ISIS 45 Min Warning Before Bombing

The leaflets, which fluttered to the ground about 45 minutes before the strikes, simply said: "Get out of your trucks now, and run away from them. Warning: airstrikes are coming. Oil trucks will be destroyed. Get away from your oil trucks immediately. Do not risk your life."

"We combine these leaflet drops with very low altitude passes of some of our attack aviation, which sends a very powerful message," the colonel added.

Former Drone Operators Say They Were “Horrified” By Cruelty of Assassination Program

U.S. DRONE OPERATORS are inflicting heavy civilian casualties and have developed an institutional culture callous to the death of children and other innocents, four former operators said at a press briefing today in New York.

The killings, part of the Obama administration’s targeted assassination program, are aiding terrorist recruitment and thus undermining the program’s goal of eliminating such fighters, the veterans added. Drone operators refer to children as “fun-size terrorists” and liken killing them to “cutting the grass before it grows too long,” said one of the operators, Michael Haas, a former senior airman in the Air Force. Haas also described widespread drug and alcohol abuse, further stating that some operators had flown missions while impaired.

US, French Aircraft Carriers Rush Toward Syrian Coast To Find Numerous Russian Warships Already There

Two weeks ago, on November 5, and one week before the Paris terrorist attack, we reported that somewhat unexpectedly, France had dispatched its only aircraft carrier, the Charles de Gaulle, to "the eastern Mediterranean for operations against Isis in both Syria and Iraq."

It was unclear just what these pre-emptive operations would be and why France is getting so dramatically involved in the campaign against ISIS. Not knowing the dramatic attack that was about to unfold (whose false flag origins have been quickly ignored as nobody has yet explained why a fake Syrian passport was found next to the suicide bomber), we speculated that this move had to do with the departure of the CVN-71 Theodore Roosevelt which had left the Persian Gulf region a month ago, leaving the entire 5th Naval Fleet without a US carrier presence for the first time in a decade.

Nov 23 07:29


PBS NewsHour, a daily US television news program shown on the US Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), used footage of Russian airstrikes against ISIL targets, claiming that they were US airstrikes, an Information Clearing House article revealed.

Earlier this week, the US government said it would intensify anti-ISIL airstrikes and bomb the terrorist organization's oil infrastructure, which is ISIL's primary source of income.

After that, on November 16, the US military said it destroyed 116 trucks carrying illegal oil in ISIL-controlled territories.

"On Monday, 295 trucks were in the area, and more than a third of them were destroyed, United States officials said. The A-10s dropped two dozen 500-pound bombs and conducted strafing runs with 30-millimeter Gatling guns. The AC-130s attacked with 30-millimeter Gatling guns and 105-millimeter cannons," the New York Times colorfully described the US military operation that allegedly took place on November 16.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the "alleged reporters" at PBS are no better than the rest of the corporate whorespondents when it comes to lying through their teeth to the American people.

Whatever shred of credibility PBS may have had in the past is completely gone, as of this incident.

This outlet can no more be trusted to tell anything approximating the truth than can the rest of their fellow and sister presstitutes, shilling desperately to support any and all government narratives they are told to, which have no basis in fact.

During a time when the U.S. Army has been reducing its troop-strength, this announcement is suspect to me.

News that French citizens have been volunteering for the military since the Paris attacks may be revealing our hand in the game. The only thing missing now is a massive U.S. false-flag to whip young, unemployed people into a patriotic fervor. This could be the plan 'A' before having to resort to a military draft.

On this video you will see some very large explosions. I have no doubt we are seeing small 1-10 kiloton surface and subsurface bursts. These aren't conventional.These aren't ammo dumps or fuel air munitions. Very classic and very dirty,mushroom cloud and all. They may have used tactical nukes in Yemen also. WW3 has been going full bore for 15 years and it is accelerating.
Putin knows that Russia is on the list for takeover and puppetizing so their vast resources can be stolen. Israel made an error due to hubris and Vladimir Putin knew he had to do something. In 2013 the Russian and Chinese Navies stood in the way of a US or Israeli attack on Syria. Somebody may have fired cruise missiles at Syria that never got past those 2 Navies.
Since then everybody has been training and exercising and moving their militaries around like chess pieces. Well the Russians anyway. The US seems to be playing checkers or maybe tiddeley winks.

The Death Of John Kennedy

UPDATE: Numerous witnesses had reported a large obvious exit wound in the back of Kennedy's head, consistent with the reports of a gunshot from the Grassy Knoll. The Warren Commission dismissed the exit wound and reports of a shooter on the Grassy Knoll and published in their report photographs of the back of Kennedy's head that showed no damage. Now it has been revealed that the
Warren Commission did not publish the actual autopsy photos but substituted photos taken after morticians had reconstructed Kennedy's head an anticipation of a possible open casket viewing prior to the funeral
, as had been done with Lincoln. Although described as a mix-up, the simplest explanation is deliberate deception by the Warren Commission.

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?

Unreported Crimes against Humanity: More Than 800 Women and Children Have Died in Yemen, and No One Has Food

Yemen’s humanitarian and human rights catastrophe continues to worsen, according to new UN figures which put the number of killed since late March at more than 5,700.

Speaking to reporters in Cairo by videoconference, the UN’s humanitarian coordinator for Yemen Johannes Van Der Klauww said that 830 of the dead were women and children. UN officials had earlier put the total number of civilians killed at more than 2,600.

As the death toll in the conflict pitting Saudi-led coalition forces against Shia Houthi rebels and their allies continues to rise, humanitarian conditions have only grown more dire, said the coordinator. 21.2 million people in the country – 82 percent of its entire population – are in need of some sort of humanitarian assistance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, America, don't you feel proud about this?!?

I mean, it is your tax dollars at work, making sure the people of Yemen are still getting bombed and starved by the Saudi Military. Because that is who is paying for this enabling of war crimes, folks: it's you.

John McCain calls for 10,000 US ground troops in Syria

The Republican former presidential candidate said the IS group posed “a direct threat” to the United States that could be dealt a knock-out blow with a ground deployment in Syria.

“Ground troops [means] about 10,000 Americans with a coalition of Arab countries, hopefully NATO countries, maybe even France, where we could go in on the ground with sufficient air support to take out ISIS,” McCain said, using another acronym for the Islamic State militants. “They are not invincible, there are not unbeatable.”

“I have great respect for President [François] Hollande, but I firmly disagree with an alliance with The Russians,” he said. “Bashar al-Assad, who’s been sponsored by [Russian President] Vladimir Putin, is the guy that killed thousands with chemical weapons. He’s a war criminal.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You have to feel a more than a little sorry for John McCain these days; not only has the man lost his reality licence; he has also lied to the American public way too many times to believed. And here is the truth of the business , as reported at WRH.com:

The official story is that the White House is certain that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against women and children near Damascus on August 21st. The White House is very certain of this, just as certain as they were that Saddam Hussein has nuclear weapons. And because the White House is certain that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against women and children near Damascus, this grants the United States a right to invade Syria. I wouldn't be too sure. So did Assad gas his own people with a chemical weapon? The answer is obviously that he did not. What does he gain from doing so? Unlike the women and children of Waco, who were proving to be a huge embarrassment to the FBI and BATF (not to mention the White House), the women and children supposedly gassed near Damascus were not a threat to Assad. Had Assad really decided to use chemical weapons, he would have targeted the hired mercenary army trying to oust him. Back in January, emails leaked from a British defense company, Britam, revealed a plan already in place and approved by the White House to give chemical weapons to the hired mercenaries, to use on civilians, in order to frame Assad and thus justify a direct US intervention, as the covert attempt at an overthrow was, after nearly three years, starting to lose badly. So we know this plan was in process months ago. Here is the final point. Assad had been requesting, for months, for a special United Nations Chemical Weapons investigation team to come to Syria to check out earlier allegations that his government had used chemical weapons. The United Nations finally agreed. So why would Assad be so stupid as to carry out a chemical weapons attack on women and children the very day the UN chemical weapons inspectors arrive, just miles from where they are staying? and the answer is, Assad would not be that stupid. This chemical attack was carried out by the hired mercenaries to frame on Assad, and women and children were targeted to maximize the shock value for propaganda purposes. The US government has decided to conquer Syria. and this lie about chemical weapons is just a repeat of the lies told about Saddam's nuclear weapons, to cover over naked aggression with a thin veneer of "Hey, we are going in to help those people." But again, by launching a war into Syria, the US will murder far more Syrians (and young Americans) than this chemical weapon was reported to have done.

WorldNetDaily Pundit: 'Bomb Mecca Off The Face Of The Earth'

WorldNetDaily columnist Burt Prelutsky writes today that he has an ingenious but “politically incorrect suggestion” of how to defeat ISIS, namely that the U.S. “bomb Mecca off the face of the earth, not concerning ourselves in the least with collateral damage, letting the Muslims know once and for all that our God is far more powerful and, yes, vengeful than their own puny deity.”

According to Prelutsky, it’s time to realize that Muslims are “savages” and there’s no way we “can re-educate Muslims or show them a better way to live.”

“I, for one, am sick and tired of seeing the Islamic bullies demand our lunch money and, like a bunch of scrawny wimps afraid of our own shadow, we hand it over,” he writes. “What’s even more appalling, we then pretend we did it because we’re good guys who realized that they’re human beings just like us, and who just happen to be a little bit hungrier than we are.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Burt Prelutsky: this is a time for this government and its military to make smart choices about Middle Eastern policy, not knee-jerk, ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid ones; and what you propose definitely falls into those categories, sir.

And do you not understand that what you propose will utterly guarantee that religious sites from around the world, including those in Israel, will get obliterated in retaliation?!? There will be a point past which the IDF will not be able to contain the wrath which will follow.

The violence in the Middle East, and its blow back, can be sourced to American foreign intervention to ultimately enrich private corporations.

In Iraq, it was all about the oil, and selling the oil only in American dollars; in Afghanistan, it was, and is, about the pipelines, protecting the opium poppy trade, and the embarrassment of riches Afghanistan has in minerals.

In Yemen, the US government enables a bloodthirsty and ruthless Saudi government to destroy the infrastructure (including hospitals and schools) to put back the US installed dictator Al-Hadi; what the Yemeni people want is simply a chance to determine their own destiny. But apparently, for someone like you, this goal should be made continuously unobtainable.

The US extrajudicial assassinations in the Middle East are murdering and maiming women, children, the medically fragile elderly, and no one in this country seems to give a damn.

The bottom line, sir, is this country's military kills and maims, with impunity, to augment American companies' bottom line: it is just that simple.

And the fastest damned way I can think of to get any terrorism to stop effecting Americans, and American assets overseas, is to stop mucking about with other peoples' countries to expropriate resources to which the US government has absolutely no moral right.

I would strongly suggest, sir, that how one defines the word "savages" perhaps appies much closer to home.

And one last comment: on your statement that we need let the Muslims "...know once and for all that our God is far more powerful and, yes, vengeful than their own puny deity.” Does God really want "vengeance", or is it really just you, masquerading behind the facade of the Judeo-Christian religion?

And in what I can only describe as your state of pathological bloodlust against Muslims, you must fantasize obsessively about the American military being used as "the machine of the gods (or God) to bring this vengeance about, which could very well result in a catastrophic world war.

So this is the outcome you want?!? Well, Mr. Prelutsky, here's your rifle...here's your parachute, and we will inform Saudi Arabia that you are on your way to kick their collective keisters all by yourself.

U.S. drone operators are inflicting heavy civilian casualties and have developed an institutional culture callous to the death of children and other innocents, four former operators said at a press briefing today in New York.

The killings, part of the Obama administration’s targeted assassination program, are aiding terrorist recruitment and thus undermining the program’s goal of eliminating such fighters, the veterans added. Drone operators refer to children as “fun-size terrorists” and liken killing them to “cutting the grass before it grows too long,” said one of the operators, Michael Haas, a former senior airman in the Air Force. Haas also described widespread drug and alcohol abuse and said some operators had flown missions while impaired.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I absolutely admire the courage and candor of those military professionals with the courage to speak out.

But in light of the fact that the American government and military are creating more terrorists than they are killing with these strikes, which at some level President Obama has to understand, one has to wonder; is the goal here not to engulf the world in perpetual war?!?

ISIS Killed More Americans in Beirut Than in Paris–but Only Their Hometown Papers Noticed

The debates continue over whether last week’s ISIS terror bombing in Beirut was undercovered by the media or just unappreciated by a uninterested public — even though, as Jim Naureckas pointed out on Tuesday, US news outlets overwhelmingly skewed their coverage toward the next day’s mass killings in Paris, in quantity, placement and level of sympathy for the victims, not just in number of Facebook shares.

Saudi Arabia—-Bloody Bankroller Of Syrian Terror

In the wake of the latest terrorist outrage in Paris, the big question is not which specific group is responsible for the attack, but who’s responsible for the Islamic State and Al Qaeda in the first place. The answer that has grown increasingly clear in recent years is that it’s Western leaders who have used growing portions of the Muslim world as a playground for their military games and are now crying crocodile tears over the consequences.

US approves $1.29 bn sale of bombs to Saudi Arabia

The United States has approved a $1.29 billion deal to replenish the Saudi air force's arsenal, depleted by its controversial bombing campaign against rebels in Yemen.

Congress has 30 days to block the sale but is unlikely to do so, and shipment of the more than 19,000 smart bombs is urgent, with strikes continuing daily.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Saudi Royal Air Force stocks are low "due to the high operational tempo in multiple counter-terrorism operations."

U.S. Senator: War in Syria ends when foreign support to terrorists stops

The U.S. senator Richard Black stressed that the war on Syria will end when the foreign countries stop arming and funding the terrorists in Syria.

In an interview with al-Mayadeen TV on Wednesday, Black said the US was wrong in its approach to arm these groups, including Jabhat al-Nusra, with the U.S.-made Tau missiles.

He highlighted that 500 Tau missiles were delivered through Saudi Arabia to Jabhat al-Nusra, noting that the war on Syria was a decision made by “Islamist groups” and intelligence agencies to change the “regime” there.

PoppyLeaks, The Story of Bush 41 the Establishment Won’t Publish

With the end of the old Communist system, it seemed that free speech and a diversity of voices would flourish behind the former Iron Curtain. That certainly hasn’t happened in Russia.

Even more troubling, though, is how the corporate media in the United States repeatedly fails to uncover and report the truth about recent American history.

Consider the latest development: the embarrassingly transparent cover-up of George H.W. Bush’s life in his new “authorized biography,” which we wrote about previously. We noted how that book was a witting fantasy because of what it left out. Imagine a book about Richard Nixon’s life that leaves out Watergate.

Someone Wants War with Russia...Victoria Nuland is not alone

Something very odd is going on in Washington. I recently attended and spoke at a conference in Washington on “realism and restraint” as a broad formula to reform U.S. foreign policy. Most presentations reflected that agenda more-or-less but oddly one of the speakers said that it was necessary for the United States to mark its place in the world while “carrying a big stick” while another panelist asserted that it was a core mission of the American people to “help other countries striving to be free.” Both were referring to how the U.S. should comport itself vis-à-vis Russia and one had to suspect that they had wandered into the auditorium by mistake, intending instead to visit the nearby American Enterprise Institute.

BEX Alert!!! - "Russian campaign in Syria doomed to fail: Pentagon chief"

US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter says Russia’s military campaign against Daesh (ISIL) terrorists in Syria is “deeply mistaken and doomed to fail.”

“The Russians got off on the wrong foot in this,” Carter said Thursday during an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”.

“They started out with a strategy that was deeply mistaken and doomed to fail. That was a strategy not to fight ISIL which they said they were going to do. That’s not what they did.”

Carter said Russia needs to change its strategy in the Arab country and opt for a future in Syria where President Bashar al-Assad is not in power.

"If the Russians change their strategy and work on a political transition in which Assad goes and the structures of government in Syria are sustained,” he said.

“If they get on the right foot, then… there’s a possibility they will contribute in a positive way to this campaign,” Carter added.

During this same period, the 'neo-conservative' faction of the PRC, represented by people like Robert Kagan, William Kristol, Paul Wolfowitz and Dick Cheney, begin agitating for America to overthrow any government in the Middle East that stands in the way of Israel's domination of the region. To that end, Kagan and Kristol had founded a group called PNAC (Project for the New American Century).

I am aghast and flummoxed at the number of Americans who just cannot seem to comprehend the culpability that the U.S. government has in all of this. This only makes sense when one takes into account that the vast majority of Americans only know what the mainstream media tells them.

Marine Combat Vet Faces Deportation for Legally Using Cannabis to Treat His PTSD

Hillary Clinton’s War Record – 100% For Genocide

While Bernie Sanders may be tired of hearing about Hillary Clinton’s “damn emails,” the recent scandals that have resulted from her Capitol Hill hearings, combined with the virtually non-existent investigation into the State Department funding of terrorist organizations have gone only a short distance in demonstrating the lengths to which Hillary Clinton has acted as the supporter and executioner of warfare since the first day she assumed any national position in government.

In addition to her history regarding the Syrian and Libyan crises, it should never be forgotten that Hillary Clinton has supported virtually every military conflict launched during and since her husband’s own disastrous tenure as President.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And remember; through the Clinton Foundation, Bill and Hill were raking in the dough from countries which wanted to see Saddam Hussein deposed. As reported at http://www.mcclatchydc.com/:

Four oil-rich Arab nations, all with histories of philanthropy to United Nations and Middle Eastern causes, have donated vastly more money to the Clinton Foundation than they have to most other large private charities involved in the kinds of global work championed by the Clinton family. Since 2001, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates gave as much as $40 million to the Clinton Foundation. Moreover, the level of Arab support for the Clinton Foundation, which occurred during the time Hillary Clinton was a U.S. senator, was seeking the Democratic nomination for president against Barack Obama, and was serving as secretary of state, fuels questions about the reasons for the donations. Were they solely to support the foundation’s causes, or were they designed to curry favor with the ex-president and with a potential future president? Mideast nations favor contributions to Clinton Foundation Between 2001 and 2014 Middle Eastern countries gave $18 million to $50 million to the Clinton Foundation, accounting for 1.4 to 4 percent of contributions over the period. In contrast, the same nations gave about $6.82 million to the International Committee for the Red Cross, accounting for less than 1 percent of the $11.2 billion in contributions the organization received.

Also, her close ties with the military/industrial complex are well documented: as reported at http://usuncut.com/ on October 6th of this year:

Iraq Veteran Will Hopkins, who served in Iraq for two years, asked Hilary Clinton on the TODAY show if we can trust her to keep us out of any more unnecessary wars. A visibly nervous Hopkins asked permission to read from his note cards so he didn’t forget anything, to which Clinton replied, “No, go right ahead.” “I served in Iraq as an Army Infantryman in 2004 and 2005,” Hopkins began. “I lost friends, a year of my life and I suspect I will be coping with the experience as long as I live. You gave a famous, rather rousing speech in support of the war powers act which allowed President Bush into Iraq,” Hopkins continued, as Clinton nodded slowly. The speech in question was delivered on October 10, 2002. In the speech, then-senator Clinton said, “I urge the President to spare no effort to secure a clear, unambiguous demand by the United Nations for unlimited inspections.” The USA invaded Iraq five months later. Hopkins went on to directly confront the former Secretary of State. “Given your history and your close ties to elements within the military industrial complex, what assurances can you provide that companies and individuals who profit from war and militarism will not have undue influence in the Clinton Administration?” Speaking carefully, Hillary said that she was “aware” that millions of lives had been needlessly affected. ”I’ve said that my vote to give President Bush the authority was a mistake. I misjudged what he would do with it,” Clinton admitted to Hopkins. Hillary then claimed that she has learned to be “wary” about entering conflict from her previous mistakes, citing her recent involvement in the negotiations with Iran.

IF one is looking to elect the Warmonger in Chief incarnate, that candidate will be Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The PNAC Plan to Destabilize the Middle East (and the world?)

The neo-conservatives had plans for the Middle East in place through the Project for the New American Century, which in September of 2000 cautioned in writing that implementing their plans would likely be a long and drawn-out affair absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event like "a new Pearl Harbor" - 12-months later the events of 9/11 occurred. 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? Was 9/11 a 2001 version of the proposed 1962 false flag "Operation Northwoods?"

The double-edged sword of cyber warfare

Kind of in your face aren't they!

One week after the Israeli army formally recognized cyber weapons as a fourth dimension of warfare, alongside land, air and sea, the defense minister on Wednesday sang the praises of digital weapons, saying that they can attack and conquer enemy assets without leaving a trace.

“Cyberspace enables the attack of another nation state in offensive action, even reaching victory without leaving any fingerprints, even if it is suspected,” Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Wednesday at the fifth annual Cyber Security Conference at Tel Aviv University, according to a conference statement. “We are already there; we are not talking about some distant future. We have experienced this in Israel’s day-to-day actions against its enemies.”

The reference to offensive action was somewhat rare and it came just two weeks after Israel was fingered as a suspect in a cyberattack against participants in the nuclear negotiations with Iran.

How a hacker could hijack a plane from their seat

The Russian plane reported problems with the planes in-flight entertainment system and wireless(wifi?).After that no more communications.

Reports that a cybersecurity expert successfully hacked into an airplane’s control system from a passenger seat raises many worrying questions for the airline industry. It was once believed that the cockpit network that allows the pilot to control the plane was fully insulated and separate from the passenger network running the in-flight entertainment system. This should make it impossible for a hacker in a passenger seat to interfere with the course of the flight. But the unfolding story of this hacker’s achievement, which has prompted further investigation by authorities and rebuttals from plane manufacturers, means that this assumption needs to be revisited.

The Paris Attacks - À quoi bon?

There are basically two ways to view the terror attacks in Paris: they were, either, as French President François Hollande says, “an act of war… committed by a terrorist army, DAESH, a jihadist army,” – or they were something else.

Given the fact that the fraudulent “War on Terror” is an Israeli construct dating back to the 1970s, the first suspect would have to be Israeli intelligence.
Why would they do that?
To advance the Israeli strategy known as the “War on Terror” – and destroy Syria in the process.

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.

First Ever NATO Drill Will Test a “Simulated” Troop Deployment Near Russian Borders

NATO is conducting its first-ever test deployment of troops in the Baltic from a UK-based command center. The simulated build-up close to Russia’s borders is aimed at checking the capabilities of the organisation’s Allied Rapid Reaction Corps (ARRC) to control large formations ‘within a challenging security crisis.’

Over the past year, NATO has dramatically increased the number and pace of its military drills across Europe, most intensively near Russia’s borders. Earlier in November, the alliance launched massive “Trident Juncture 2015” exercises involving 36,000 troops as well as more than 60 warships and around 200 aircraft from all NATO member states. Seven more partner nations were involved: Australia, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Finland, Macedonia, Sweden and Ukraine. This made Trident Juncture the biggest drill since 2002, when about 40,000 troops took part in NATO’s “Strong Resolve” exercise.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This pre-caching of weapons in Eastern Europe telegraphs that NATO is planning some kind of malicious attack on Russia, or wants to create a false flag which will be blamed upon Russia.

War Is Good? Weapons Manufacturers Stocks Soar After Paris Attacks

A recent report by journalist Glenn Greenwald pointed out stock prices for weapons manufacturers sharply increased just after the terrorist attacks in Paris last week. Greenwald was following the tip of Brooklyn journalist Aaron Cantú, who posted screenshots for the recent stock performances of major weapons contractors on his Twitter page early Monday morning:

On Monday, nearly as soon as the markets opened, stocks for weapons manufacturers began to soar — Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics and Thales saw increases in a day that was rather calm for the rest of the market.

It seemed that the whole world knew immediately after the attacks that more war was on its way, and these rising stock values appear to substantiate the case. This week, various European countries, along with the United States, have promised more military action in the Middle East, despite the fact Western military intervention over the past decade created this mess to begin with.

Note that after the Russian jet crashed in the Sinai there weren't all that many Facebook avatars with the Russian flag pasted over them, and hardly any candlelight vigils or piles of wreaths and flowers in various Western capitals. I even detected a whiff of smug satisfaction that the Russians got their comeuppance for stepping out of line in Syria.

Banging your heart against some mad bugger’s wall*

The truth is that all Israelis are colonizers, settlers, and occupiers and, unless they oppose it in no uncertain terms, they are enforcers of a racist, apartheid regime. So the short answer is, yes, all Israelis are settlers, regardless of whether they live in Tel-Aviv or Jerusalem, or Ma’ale Edomim or Kiryat Arba. All of Israel is occupied Palestine and the myth that the occupation of Palestine began in 1967 needs to be buried for good. .... Miko Peled

Approaching Global Insanity

What's really at stake if the world gets conned again and gives in to USI, Israel & NATO, supposedly under the global silence of the UN ­ will be nothing less than the conscription of every NATO “nation” into an all out and probably nuclear war, which will more than likely end in a nuclear conflagration which this planet cannot survive.

That 'war' will directly INVOLVE the lives of every man woman and child,
that is living on this planet today.

Every nation must close their borders, rise up and send back all the undocumented, to wherever they came from ­ immediately.

If this is not done, together with OUTLAWING

every part of Political Correctness and Zero Tolerance,
in every country,then humanity and nature are equally doomed to die
a very ugly death and this will happen very soon, if the global public does not act!

French Government Knew That a Terror Attack Was Imminent

It’s abundantly clear that they were warned by multiple intelligence agencies, and they knew that something was going to happen. It’s impossible to tell how much the French government knew about these terrorists, or when and where they would strike, but we do know this: They were aware that something was coming, and they don’t want the public to understand that.

NATO’s Allied Rapid Reaction Corps to test ‘simulated’ troop deployment near Russian borders

NATO is conducting its first-ever test deployment of troops in the Baltic from a UK-based command center. The simulated build-up close to Russia’s borders is aimed at checking the capabilities of the organisation’s Allied Rapid Reaction Corps (ARRC) to control large formations ‘within a challenging security crisis.’

A large-scale command exercise named Arrcade Fusion 15 (AF15), lasting two weeks and involving over 1,700 troops from 20 NATO countries plus Sweden, is underway in three Baltic states – Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia. AF15 is a command-post exercise by the ARRC, which is based in Gloucestershire, UK. Arrcade Fusion exercises have taken place annually since 1992.

Terrorism: Face the facts or face World War III

Following 9/11, the explanations for terror strikes on the World Trade Center and Pentagon had nothing to do with America’s Middle East policy. No, “America was targeted for attack… because we’re the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity,” declared President George W. Bush. It was the work, he asserted, of “enemies of freedom.”

Now, following the deadly strikes in Paris, the narrative is similar. It had nothing to do with France’s foreign policy, according to Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius. He said the strikes were against French values and French way of life: “What they do not accept is, it is not our actions – it is what we are” and they “don’t accept the fact that we dance.”

U.S. Senator to President al-Assad: War on Syria was an unlawful war of aggression

President Bashar al-Assad on Tuesday received a letter from U.S. Senator for the State of Virginia Richard Black a letter in which he said “I was pleased by the Russians’ intervention against the armies invading Syria. With their support, the Syrian Army has made dramatic strides against the terrorists.”

“I was delighted by Syria’s resounding victory over ISIS at the Kuwairis Airfield. My compliments to those who heroically rescued 1,000 brave Syrian soldiers from certain death. I am convinced that many such victories lie ahead,” Black added.

U.S., Turkey Joint Operation Designed To Save ISIS, Not Destroy It

With Russia annihilating terrorist vermin all across Syria from the air and the SAA personally mopping up the remainders in village after village, it appears the West has shifted from utter panic to an attempt to launch a Hail Mary and save its jihadist pets as well as the plan to overthrow the secular government of Bashar al-Assad.

This Hail Mary appears to be coming in the form of an attempt to secure the “Safe Zone” area discussed and agreed upon by the Turks and the United States in the past under the guise of fighting ISIS and protecting “moderate rebels” and civilians. In reality, however, the “Safe Zone” is nothing but a trafficking corridor for ISIS and other related terrorist organizations supported by NATO, financed by the GCC, and funneled through Turkey into Syria.

ISIS Is Being Aimed At The West By Globalists – Here’s What We Can Do About It

By Brandon Smith

Over the past year and a half, I have been writing on the engineered nature of ISIS, delving deeply into its history and its backing by Western intelligence agencies in articles such as “Is Martial Law Justified If ISIS Attacks?” as well as “What Will You Do When Tyranny And Terrorism Work Hand In Hand?” and “The Time Is Ripe For A False Flag Attack On American Soil.”

Specifically, I compared the ISIS phenomenon to another establishment-backed terrorist program that began at the onset of the Cold War in Europe and was publicly exposed in the 1990s. That program was called Operation Gladio...

After the Paris terror attacks: A drumbeat for military escalation and internal repression

In the days following the horrific terrorist attacks that claimed the lives of 129 innocent civilians in Paris, the response from within the US political establishment and media has been as predictable as it is reactionary. Stoking desires for revenge and exploiting the shock over the attacks claimed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), politicians, pundits and the media are mounting a drumbeat propaganda offensive for an escalation of military aggression abroad and police state repression at home.

Ron Paul : Paris and What Should Be Done

Here is the alternative: Focus on trade and friendly relations, stop shipping weapons, abandon “regime change” and other manipulations, respect national sovereignty, and maintain a strong defense at home including protecting the borders from those who may seek to do us harm. We should abandon the failed policies of the past, before it’s too late.

Putin Ain’t Playin': Offers $50 Million Reward for Terrorists Who Bombed Plane

Russia didn’t waste any time acting on Putin’s payback vow: the Kremlin launched a massive overnight bombardment across Syria, including airstrikes on the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, according to U.S. and Russian officials.

The FSB, which is the successor to the KGB, also announced that it is offering a $50 million reward for information on who brought the plane down.

Confirmed: Syrian Passports Found at Paris Attack Scene Were Fake, Made in Turkey

Apparently Syrian IDs and passports are easily purchased in Turkey to whoever has a little extra cash. A Dutch journalist reported on doing just that back in September, both using pictures of the Dutch prime minister, and for the low price of just $825.

Now police sources in France have confirmed the Syrian passports found in the wake of the Paris attacks are indeed fake.
