Israel Fires Rockets Into Syria, Claims Targets Were ‘Iran-Backed’. Are They Playing With Fire?

Recently, 21WIRE published an article about the potential of Israeli ground operations in Syria. Less than a day after that article entitled, ‘Israel Planning Ground Operations in Syria? US-NATO-Israel Plans to Balkanize Syria,’ we find that NBC News then reports the following:

“Four rockets were fired into Israel from Syria Thursday and the Israeli government accused an Iranian-backed group as being responsible.”

“Israeli military responded by launching airstrikes and artillery attacks against 14 targets in the Syrian Golan Heights. Israel said the rocket attack was launched by a group calling itself Islamic Jihad, which it said was an Iranian proxy force commanded by Saed Izadi, an Iranian. “For us this is a clear act of aggression and was meant by the Iranians to use the chaos inside Syria to escalate tensions in the region,” an Israeli security source said.”

Neocons to Americans: Trust Us Again

Marching in lockstep with Israeli hardliners, American neocons are aiming their heavy media artillery at the Iran nuclear deal as a necessary first step toward another “regime change” war in the Mideast – and they are furious when anyone mentions the Iraq War disaster and the deceptions that surrounded it.

The Age of Imperial Wars - From Regional War, "Regime Change" to Global Warfare

2015 has become a year of living dangerously.

Wars are spreading across the globe.

Wars are escalating as new countries are bombed and the old are ravaged with ever greater intensity.

Countries, where relatively peaceful changes had taken place through recent elections, are now on the verge of civil wars.

These are wars without victors, but plenty of losers; wars that don’t end; wars where imperial occupations are faced with prolonged resistance.

Why Are We Ignoring the War on Yemen?

Yemen has been the target of a brutal U.S.-backed war led by Saudi Arabia. While ordinary civilians are suffering horrific violence and starvation, there is deafening silence from the U.S. and others who claim to be defenders of human rights.

The situation is so bad now that nearly every major global human rights organization has issued dire warnings of the humanitarian catastrophe unfolding in the Persian Gulf’s poorest nation.

US to boost military presence in Asia-Pacific region, Pentagon says

The United States plans to strengthen its military presence in the Asia-Pacific region in the next years by deploying there more its ships and warplanes, a new Pentagon report has said.
The report titled "Asia-Pacific Maritime Security Strategy" said Washington will "maintain the necessary military presence and capabilities to protect U.S. interests and those of allies and partners against potential threats in maritime Asia." David Shear, the assistant secretary of defense for Asian-Pacific security affairs: "The United States maintains 368,000 military personnel in the Asia-Pacific region. Over the next five years, the U.S. Navy will increase the number of ships assigned to Pacific Fleet outside of U.S. territory by approximately 30%, greatly improving our ability to maintain a more regular and persistent maritime presence in the Pacific. And by 2020, 60% of naval and overseas air assets will be home-ported in the Pacific region."

All Out War on Russia’s Doorstep: Full Scale Military Operation by Kiev Forces against Donbass

DPR Intelligence has released a plan of Kiev to break the Minsk agreements and start a full-scale military operation in Donbass. After artillery preparation fire against positions of the DPR Armed Forces, Kiev military will start an offensive from the Mariupol and Debaltsevo sectors in the direction of the Uspenka settlement to take control of the border with Russia and prevent locals’ from fleeing to Russia.

At the very same moment, Kiev forces will advance in the direction of Ilovaisk to encircle Donetsk from the South and North.

Thus, Kiev has finished the preparations for an all-out military operation in Donbass. The future developments depend on the reaction of people’s republics, internal political developments and the international diplomatic situation.

There are only two questions to be asked here; how soon with this full-on assault will begin, and how will Putin respond?!?

Did the Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki Really End the War?

“War is peace” at least according to a Sid Miller, a Texas official for Department of Agriculture and former state representative posted a facebook comment suggesting that the atomic bombs dropped in two Japanese cities during World War II killing and permanently injuring tens of thousands of people should be used again, this time against the Muslim world according to RT news. The facebook post read “Japan Has Been at Peace with the U.S. Since August 9, 1945, It’s Time we Made Peace with the Muslim World” with a picture of a mushroom cloud from an atomic explosion. RT News reported that “A Texas official will not apologize for a shared post on his Facebook page that insinuates an atomic bomb should be dropped on “the Muslim world.” Although the Department of Agriculture“claimed he did not personally share the post” it has undoubtedly caused a backlash against Miller.

Pentagon wants to ramp up drone flights by 2019

Ever since the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan started to wind down, the American public has gained a revulsion towards sending troops to combat zones overseas. Granted, public support for a ground invasion against Isis or Syria has teetered back and forth in recent years, but gone are the days when a US president could easily drum up support for a “Gulf War” style invasion. This means that when the Pentagon wants to go to war, all they can do is throw more drones at the problem.

Giving War a Chance – Peace is almost always an alternative—but you won’t hear that from US politicians or news media

On August 5, US President Barack Obama compared the rhetoric employed by opponents of the P5+1/Iran nuclear negotiations to that used by the Bush administration during the run-up to America’s catastrophic war in Iraq, noting (Washington Post, 8/5/15) that “many of the same people who argued for the war in Iraq are now making the case against the Iran nuclear deal.”

WHEN $8.5 TRILLION IS CHUMP CHANGE

here’s my real concern. The $8.5 trillion is just the bit that the Pentagon can’t account for. That’s far from all the money it was given. U.S. military spending, spread across several departments with the biggest chunk of it to the Department of so-called Defense, is upwards of $1 trillion every year. Over 17 years at the current rate, which rose sharply after 2001, that’s upwards of $17 trillion.

Imagine that the Pentagon accounted for every dime of that missing $8.5 trillion, named every profiteer, documented the life history of every man, woman, and child killed, and passed the strictest audit by an independent team of 1,000 accountants reporting to 35 Nobel Laureates — if that happened, I ask you, exactly what difference would it make?

Pentagon Manual Calls Some Reporters Spies

Honest war correspondents and photographers who try to cover wars effectively are about to become suspect spies if a new Pentagon manual, “Law of War,” is accepted by U.S. military commanders.

Mass Murderers we've Known and Voted For

snip: In other words, the entire government acted upon the same premise a mass murderer uses in his actions, but claims it’s not “crazy” and calls it, rather, “credible intelligence” I will leave you, dear readers, to pinpoint the irony in that. Let me say this, though. A mass murderer with a gun can kill about thirty people before police arrive and thwart his plan, whatever it was. A President with a military can kill thirty people per second, and this can go on for over a decade without end, and no one will thwart that plan, whatever it originally was and then mutated into later. In fact, incredibly, that plan can be handed down to a successor President and the plan continues on! This is astonishing to contemplate! Think about a scenario where a mass murderer opens fire, kills thirty people, and then another mass murderer arrives and takes over the crime killing even more people. You see, there’s a lot of talk about keeping guns out of the hands of “crazy” people.

Is the New ‘Law of War Manual’ Actually ‘Hitlerian’?

The Obama U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has quietly issued its important Law of War Manual, and, unlike its predecessor, the 1956 U.S. Army Field Manual, which was not designed to approve of the worst practices by both the United States and its enemies in World War II, or after 9/11, this new document has been alleged specifically to do just that: to allow such attacks as the United States did on Dresden, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki, and in Iraq, and elsewhere.

Deadly Cheering for War in Ukraine by Western Press

Two weeks ago, the Washington Post published an editorial saying that the governments of the NATO military alliance are being too soft on Russia over the crisis in Ukraine. The editors want even more aggressive support to the governing regime in Kyiv than what is already being given.

In particular, the newspaper objects to the ceasefire agreement that it says beleaguered Kyiv was pressured to sign in Minsk, Belarus on February 15, 2015. The editorial was headlined, ‘Putting Ukraine in an untenable position’ and its reads, “Yet now the German and French governments have enlisted the help of the Obama administration in seeking unilateral Ukrainian compliance with Minsk 2’s onerous political terms, which if fully implemented would implant a Russian-controlled entity inside Ukraine’s political system.”

It Starts: Broad Retaliation Against China in Currency War

Hot money is already fleeing emerging markets. Higher rates in the US will drain more capital out of countries that need it the most. It will pressure emerging market currencies and further increase the likelihood of a debt crisis in countries whose governments, banks, and corporations borrow in a currency other than their own.

This scenario would be bad enough for the emerging economies. But now China has devalued the yuan to stimulate its exports and thus its economy at the expense of others. And one thing has become clear on Wednesday: these struggling economies that compete with China are going to protect their exports against Chinese encroachment.

Hence a currency war.

FLASHBACK - THE LIE OF THE (LAST) CENTURY

There is nothing new in a government lying to their people to start a war.

Scorecard on U.S. Interventionism

Since 9/11, the United States has flailed away and attacked or invaded at least seven Muslim countries. (I say "at least" because, in contravention of the U.S. Constitution, American presidents now run secret overseas conflicts, including the latest drone wars, without public knowledge or the consent of their representatives in Congress.) Since U.S. (non-Muslim) military presence or intervention in Muslim countries was the original motivator for the 9/11 attacks, doubling down on a failed policy seemed a poor bet among many expert analysts, even during the period of hysteria after the attacks on the Pentagon and Twin Towers.

No, Bernanke … Defense Spending Does NOT Help the Economy!

War is widely thought to be linked to economic good times. The second world war is often said to have brought the world out of depression, and war has since enhanced its reputation as a spur to economic growth. Some even suggest that capitalism needs wars, that without them, recession would always lurk on the horizon. Today, we know that this is nonsense. The 1990s boom showed that peace is economically far better than war. The Gulf war of 1991 demonstrated that wars can actually be bad for an economy.

US Military Prepares Drastic Escalation of Global Drone Program

Citing exclusive interviews with senior U.S. officials, the WSJ's Gordon Lubold reports that the number of daily flights by aircraft such as MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper drones will surge an estimated 50 percent. Further, the expanded drone program will "draw on the Army, as well as Special Operations Command and government contractors," in addition to the U.S. Air Force, which currently carries out most of the operations for the Pentagon and Central Intelligence Agency.

Lobuld reports: "The Pentagon envisions a combined effort that by 2019 would have the Air Force continue flying 60 drone flights a day, the Army contributing as many as 16 and the military’s Special Forces Command pitching in with as many as four. Government contractors would be hired to fly older Predator drones on as many as 10 flights a day, none of them strike missions."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder; how much of this increase in drones will be domestic, as well as international?

And how far a stretch is it for this President to have his legal eagles determine that extrajudicial assassinations in this country are just as legal as they are overseas?!?

Unfortunately, in light of the fact that Obama has already decided he is capable of being judge, jury, and (proxy) executioner, not much.

Iraq Inquiry - Five Year, £10 Million Whitewash of Blair Regime?

Bereaved UK families who lost sons and daughters in the illegal invasion of Iraq have now threatened legal action against Sir John Chilcot who headed the near two year long, £10m Iraq Inquiry (30th July 2009 - 2nd February 2011) if a date for release of Inquiry findings is not announced publicly within two weeks. Further, suspicions over the reason for the approaching five years near silence from Sir John are raised by a detailed investigation by journalist Andrew Pierce.
Felicity Arbuthnot: writing in the Daily Mail he highlights the seemingly close relationship between Sir John Chilcot and Tony Blair.
Pierce refers to Blair's first appearance before the Inquiry five years ago when: "the Chairman, Sir John Chilcot treated him with almost painful deference." What few realized was that Sir John, a former career civil servant: "could, in fact, have greeted Blair as an old friend."

FLASHBACK - The New McCarthyism

Of course, what was really involved was money. War is good for business. Business had been great during WW2 and the newly created "Cold War" was just a way to keep business good. The Military Industrial Complex NEEDED Hollywood to demonize the Soviets. Otherwise, too many people were going to ask why we were being told to be so afraid of them, and few in the government had a really convincing answer for that question. So, in order to perpetuate the Cold War, those in Hollywood who might sympathize with the designated villains had to be removed; their ruined lives a small price to pay for unending access to the taxpayers' wallets.

What the Latest Currency ‘War’ is All About

When the US embarks on perennial quantitative easing, that’s OK. When the EU does QE as well, that’s OK. But when the Bank of China decides it’s in the best interest of the nation to let the yuan go down a bit instead of infinitely up, that’s Armageddon.

An internationalized yuan established as a global reserve currency implies a "market-determined" exchange rate policy.

It took the Bank of China to devaluate the yuan on two consecutive days — moving within the 2 percent band that it’s allowed to — for the proverbial global financial banshees to go completely bonkers.

Forget the hysteria. The heart of the matter is that Beijing has stepped on the gas in a quite complex long game; to liberalize the yuan exchange rate; allow it to free float against the US dollar; and establish the yuan as a global reserve currency.

The Social Costs of Capitalism

The public subsidies provided to miners, loggers, and ranchers are as extravagant and as harmful to the public interest as the subsidies that the Federal Reserve and Treasury provide to the "banks too big to fail."

Few, if any, corporations absorb the full cost of their operations. Corporations shove many of their costs onto the environment, the public sector, and distant third parties.

Economists call these costs “external costs” or “social costs.” The mine made its profits by creating pollutants, the cost of which is borne by those who had no share in the profits.

British petition calls for Netanyahu to be arrested for war crimes

The petition, filed on the U.K. parliament petition website, was apparently inspired by an upcoming visit to London by Netanyahu for meetings with the government.

Thousands of U.K. residents have signed a petitiondemanding the arrest of Israeli Prime MinisterBenjamin Netanyahu for his war crimes against Gaza during last summer’s brutal offensive.

Given the large scale of support and attention, the U.K. government may be forced to publicly respond in the near future.

Pentagon trains “moderate” Syrian rebel army. $500 million to train 60 rebels. Where did the money go?

“I can look out at your faces and see you had the same reaction I do, which is that that’s an awfully small number.” (60 Trainees) So said American Defense Secretary Ash Carter in testimony before an incredulous Senate Armed Services Committee on July 7, explaining that the $500 million American project, announced over a year ago, to train and arm a new Syrian rebel army to bring the Islamic State to its knees and force a political settlement on the Syrian regime simultaneously has, to date, trained just 60 fighters.

ISIS 'Mein Kampf' Blames Israel for Global Terrorism

Intelligence officials are comparing a newly discovered secret Islamic State document to Hitler’s “Mein Kampf,” as it blames Israel for the rise of the Islamic State and crowns U.S. President Barack Obama as the “Mule of the Jews.”

“It reads like the caliphate’s own Mein Kampf,” said a U.S. intelligence official, who reviewed the document. “While the world is watching videos of beheadings and crucifixions in Iraq and Syria the Islamic State is moving into North Africa the Middle East, and now we see it has a strategy in South Asia. It’s a magician’s trick, watch this hand and you’ll never see what the other is doing.”

US Military reveals plans to expand drone program by 50 percent, including broader use of mercenaries

The U.S. Pentagon is poised to dramatically increase the deployment of surveillance drones over "global hot spots" such as Ukraine, Iraq, Syria, the South China Sea, and North Africa, as well as expand its capacity for lethal drone strikes, the Wall Street Journal revealed on Monday. Citing exclusive interviews with senior U.S. officials, the WSJ's Gordon Lubold reports that the number of daily flights by aircraft such as MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper drones will surge an estimated 50 percent. Further, the expanded drone program will "draw on the Army, as well as Special Operations Command and government contractors," in addition to the U.S. Air Force, which currently carries out most of the operations for the Pentagon and Central Intelligence Agency.

UN: 12-year-old girl had 'brutal ordeal' in Africa attack

A 12-year-old girl who says she was raped by a U.N. peacekeeper in Central African Republic went through "a most brutal ordeal," the U.N. children's agency said, and the United Nations pledged again Monday to fully investigate all allegations of sexual misconduct and hold perpetrators accountable.

Amnesty International last week accused peacekeepers of the rape, and of the indiscriminate killing of a 16-year-old boy and his father, in separate incidents Aug. 2 and Aug. 3. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon then fired the head of the peacekeeping mission in Central African Republic, an unprecedented action.

NATO Denies Preparing for War With Russia

Last week, the European Leadership Network (ELN) published a report claiming that NATO and Russia are both making active preparations for full-scale war, citing massive military exercises on the border, and US war-gaming on “sustained” wars in Eastern Europe.

NATO is officially “denying” this, but the rest of their statement reads less like a denial than like an attempt to shift the blame to Russia, insisting all their preparations are response to “Russian aggression,” and that the exercises actually “enhance security in response to growing Russian aggression.”

"One can no longer talk about, the contact line 'ALREADY ON - Front"

Russia is concerned about the aggravation of the situation in Donbass, because it looks like a sharpening preparations for broad military actions - said Sergey Lavrov.

Russian Foreign Minister said this at a joint press conference with his Iranian counterpart, Javad Zarif. It is pointed out:

"We are concerned about the situation on the fronts. Because he can no longer speak of the line of contact but on the front, unfortunately. "

The Russian minister pointed out that the conflicting parties had long since negotiate the demilitarization Širokina (settlement between Donetsk and Novoazovsk) and the deposition of the "line of contact" weapons with a caliber of 100 millimeters, but that this did not happen "because of the position of Kiev."

"We are very concerned about the development of the situation in recent days because everything looks very much like preparing for a new war activities".

Donald Trumps Advocates Sending Ground Troops to Fight the Islamic State

Candidate says U.S. needs to take Iraq’s oil.

Trump said Iraq’s oil fields should be seized to prevent ISIS from profiting.

It is estimated ISIS controls around 10% of the country’s oil rigs and sells the stolen oil at lower than market prices on an international black market.

Trump said the Iraqis should be given “something” from their oil fields and added “we should definitely take back money for our soldiers” wounded in the invasion of Iraq.

Once the international community had made up its mind – after years of back and forth – that Gaddafi was ‘evil’ and a war had to be waged on Libya, all versions of the documentary were removed from the web.

One of the creepiest aspects of contemporary American politics is the unholy alliance between the Christian right and Israel. It’s uncomfortable because the religious right’s affinity for Israel is tied to a rather disturbing fever dream: Israel’s destruction. Many evangelicals are utterly convinced that every addition to the sum of suffering in the Middle East is but a sign of the end times, of Christ’s return.

But if such a war comes to pass, will the US Military be up to the task of fighting the Russians?

Iraqi Officials Take On ISIS “Fall of Mosul” False Flag – Patsies Lining Up

By Bernie Suarez

Ever since the illegal planned invasion and destruction of Iraq admitted by General Wesley Clark in his “7 countries in 5 years” debriefing to the American people in 2007 and outlined in the globalist Project for a New American Century (PNAC) plans from BEFORE 9/11, Iraq has been at the center of the new world order. How could they not be? It was Iraq’s Saddam Hussein who was a master patsy FOR the United States who armed Hussein to the tune of billions of dollars only to pull the carpet from underneath his feet when they saw that he wasn’t going to play (petro dollar) ball with them any more. Iraq is also the birth place of ISIS (al Qaeda in Iraq at the time). But ISIS only really took a stronghold in Iraq after the planned and engineered fall of Iraq at the hands of the U.S...

Neocons to Americans: Trust Us Again

Marching in lockstep with Israeli hardliners, American neocons are aiming their heavy media artillery at the Iran nuclear deal as a necessary first step toward another “regime change” war in the Mideast – and they are furious when anyone mentions the Iraq War disaster and the deceptions that surrounded it.

America’s neocons insist that their only mistake was falling for some false intelligence about Iraq’s WMD and that they shouldn’t be stripped of their powerful positions of influence for just one little boo-boo. That’s the point of view taken by Washington Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt as he whines about the unfairness of applying “a single-interest litmus test,” i.e., the Iraq War debacle, to judge him and his fellow war boosters.

‘Deal or war’: Is doomed dollar really behind Obama’s Iran warning?

This is not just about Iran. It is about other major world economies moving away from holding the US dollar as a means of doing business.

In his drastic prediction of war, one might assume that Obama is referring to Israel launching a preemptive military strike on Iran with the backing of US Republicans. Or that he is insinuating that Iran will walk from self-imposed restraints on its nuclear program to build a bomb, thus triggering a war.

But what could really be behind Obama’s dire warning of “deal or war” is another scenario – the collapse of the US dollar, and with that the implosion of the US economy.

That scenario was hinted at this week by US Secretary of State John Kerry. Speaking in New York on August 11, Kerry made the candid admission that failure to seal the nuclear deal could result in the US dollar losing its status as the top international reserve currency.

Family history hounds Jeb Bush on campaign trail

When Jeb Bush stepped up onto the fabled soapbox at the Iowa State Fair on Friday, fairgoers pelted him with questions about the legacy of his brother, a former president. And his father, another former president. And one of his foreign policy advisers, Paul D. Wolfowitz, the architect of his brother’s war in Iraq. And about the war itself.

Under a blazing sun, Bush expressed irritation with what he called “the parlor game” of focusing on Wolfowitz and other past Bush administration advisers who have resurfaced for this Bush campaign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Jeb Bush might have been able to distance himself from the pro-war records of his father and brother, had he not hired Wolfowitz! In any event, Americans understand that the Oval Office is not an hereditary office to be handed back and forth between two dynastic royal families!

Pentagon Seeks More Funds for ‘Sustained’ War With Russia

In the eternal quest to drive up the already preposterous level of US military spending, Pentagon officials are talking up the notion of Russia as an “existential threat” to the United States, and running tabletop war games which they say show the US military isn’t as “ready as we want to be” for a sustained ground war in Russia.

That the US and Russia each have enough nuclear weapons to annihilate most life on the planet has long made the war-gaming for a long US-Russia war ultimately pointless: no one would survive long enough to enjoy the “win” anyhow. That hasn’t stopped the Pentagon from envisioning protracted campaigns on Russian soil with conventional weaponry.

The conclusion: most Pentagon officials figure the US would almost certainly defeat Russia in this drawn-out war, but after drawn-out wars in Iraq and Afghanistan it is “not a sure bet.” That’s a problem looking for a solution, and at the Pentagon, the solution is always only a few hundred billion dollars away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like the Pentagon is ramping up for war without end, at a point where homelessness and malnutrition, particularly for American kids, has soared, and where US infrastructure is crumbling.

The American people have become all but irrelevant and completely useless to those in Congress and the military.

And just because the US outspends Russia on weaponry is absolutely no guarantee that it will work as well, or better, than Russian military equipment. In fact, cost many times, is very high for US weapons, and the weapons do not work at all as advertised.

NATO MILITARY DEPLOYMENTS, ECONOMIC WARFARE, GOLDMAN SACHS AND THE NEXT FINANCIAL MELTDOWN

modern warfare is by no means limited to the sphere of military and intelligence operations. Washington not only imposes economic sanctions on countries which do not support its imperial agenda, it also fosters the outright destabilization of national economies. While the Pentagon and NATO coordinate military operations against sovereign countries, Wall Street carries out concurrent destabilizing actions on financial markets including the rigging of the oil, gold and foreign exchange markets directed against Russia and China.

It’s called “financial warfare”, it’s part of the same global agenda, it’s implemented alongside and in coordination with the Worldwide deployment of the US-NATO’s military machine.

IF the US government is looking to activate the destabilization of both the Russian and Chinese economies, this will not end well, even for the one percenters.

One of the fair-goers asked the Republican presidential candidate during his appearance on the Des Moines Register Soapbox whether he was being advised by Paul Wolfowitz, George W. Bush's deputy secretary of defense and the architect of his Iraq War policy.

Jeb Bush tried to spin the question away from his legacy as the son and brother of the last two Republican presidents, but he did so awkwardly.

The best they can do is encircle the Russians with missiles and military bases, but at the end of the day, you can’t use brute force to topple a nuclear armed government. On the other hand though, our government may be able bring the Putin regime down from within.

Her team also denied that she would ever hand over her server to investigators. Now both those assertions have been overturned.
