Why US Neocons Consider Azerbaijan 'as Important' as Ukraine for Russia

After the fighting, both sides reported numerous victims and accused each other of breaking the ceasefire. However, who really stands behind the escalation of the frozen conflict, remains unclear.

The newspaper referred to US political expert Zbigniew Brzezinski who said the fate of Azerbaijan is closely connected with the fate of Russia. New violent clashes in the disputed regions could prove dangerous for Moscow especially given the fact that important oil and natural gas pipelines run through the region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Which suggests a third party might have fired the first few shots that broke the cease-fire.

Baku Threatens to Launch 'Powerful' Strikes Against Karabakh Capital

The Azeri defense minister will order artillery shelling of the capital of the self-proclaimed region of Nagorno-Karabakh, Hankendi (Stepanakert), if the Armenian army continues to carry out artillery strikes against settlements of the territory of Azerbaijan, the Azeri Defense Ministry said Monday.

US Air Force Deploys F-15 Jets to Iceland, Netherlands - Reports

A dozen F-15 fighters and some 350 air force personnel were sent to the region on Friday, set to support NATO surveillance missions and conduct training, the CNN reported.
Air force units from the Massachusetts' 131st Fighter Squadron and California's 194th Fighter Squadron have been stationed at an Iceland Cold War-era airbase that had been defunct since 2006, according to the broadcaster.
The move follows the February US Air Force announcement of plans to deploy six F-15 fighters to Finland in spring. The jets, which are reportedly to be stationed some 100 kilometers (60 miles) from the Russian border, have been deployed as part of Operation Atlantic Resolve in response to alleged Russian interference in the Ukrainian conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WHAT "...alleged Russian interference in the Ukrainian conflict."?!?!?

Where is the proof?!?

And the short answer here is, there is no proof of these allegations; otherwise, the US government would be shouting from the rooftops with (non-photoshopped) pictures of this alleged behaviour.

These allegations have nothing to do with Russia, and everything to do with justifying pre-positioning more US military hardware in and around Europe for a coming war against Russia.

Europe’s Terror Blowback

France under President Nicolas Sarkozy played a lead role in fomenting the insurgency against the Gaddafi regime in Libya in 2011, and Sarkozy’s successor, Francois Hollande, has been on the forefront of supporting the Sunni militants in Syria against the Alawite-Shi’a regime of Bashar al-Assad.

Defiant China slaps steel tariffs on Britain as trade war looms

China has thrown down the gauntlet in an escalating trade war over the global steel glut, imposing punitive tariffs of 46pc on hi-tech steel produced in Britain and the rest of the European Union.

The astonishing move came as the Prime Minister, David Cameron, confronted the Chinese leader Xi Jinping at a meeting in Washington, pleading for action to slow the flood of Chinese steel exports reaching Europe.

A New Right To Secrecy For Companies, And A Dangerous EU Legislative Proposal

The proposed EU legislation on “Trade Secrets Protection”, which the European Parliament will vote next April 14, creates excessive rights to secrecy for businesses: it is a direct threat to the work of journalists and their sources, whistleblowers, employees’ freedom of expression, and rights to access public interest information (on medicines, pesticides, car emissions, etc.).

IMF Tries To Put Out Fire From Bombshell Greece Leak, But Doesn’t Apologize

The International Monetary Fund’s managing director told Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras on Sunday that the IMF remains committed to good faith negotiations, trying to assuage concerns raised by a Saturday leak.

Christine Lagarde dismissed the possibility the IMF would use underhanded tactics to pressure Greece in the letter, which was also posted on the IMF’s website.

The Huffington Post first reported on Saturday that Tsipras had asked Lagarde whether Greece could “trust” the IMF in light of leaked remarks by IMF officials suggesting that a crisis-inducing “event” was necessary to get Greece to comply with IMF austerity requests.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"When the world around the IMF goes downhill, we thrive. We become extremely active because we lend money, we earn interest and charges and all the rest of it, and the institution does well. When the world goes well and we’ve had years of growth, as was the case back in 2006 and 2007, the IMF doesn’t do so well both financially and otherwise." -- Chrstine Lagarde

Austria to deploy troops at Alpine border to stop refugees coming through Italy

Austria is concerned that it may soon face an inflow of refugees coming through Italy and is considering deploying troops to handle it. This comes as the EU's refugee deal with Turkey is about to be enforced.

In February, Austria introduced border restrictions, as did the Balkan countries. It resulted in a sharp decline in the number of new arrivals in Germany, the primary destination of asylum seekers. In March, less than 5,000 refugees entered Germany from Austria, the German Interior Ministry reported on Saturday, compared to 38,570 in February and 64,700 in January.

Has Russia Now Salvaged Europe?

The United States cooked up the idea of using fundamentalist-Sunni, Saudi-led-and-inspired mujahideen, or “Taliban,” as cheap fanatics to fight against the Soviet Union in 1979 in Afghanistan; and, then, after thus draining and ending the USSR by 1991, the royal Sauds and their friends U.S. Presidents — starting with the Bushes but including Clinton(s) and Obama — have continued it as a bad habit, which got out of control and has now ultimately forced millions of Syrians (and Libyans etc.) to leave their jihadist-infested homelands to seek safety in Europe.

Tax authorities to monitor Greeks’ bank accounts across the EU

Greece’s tax authorities will soon be able to monitor all bank accounts that Greek taxpayers have within the European Union, according to a draft law currently being discussed by Parliament’s Financial Affairs Committee. Finance Ministry officials are introducing the clauses on the automatic exchange of bank account information, which will effectively allow them direct access to all deposits of local taxpayers within the bloc, with the aim of combating cross-border fraud and tax evasion.

Azerbaijan Destroys 10 Armenian Tanks in Nagorno-Karabakh - Ministry

Armenia has lost 10 battle tanks during the intensified Nagorno-Karabakh conflict with Azerbaijan, according to the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This feels like a repeat of the Georgian conflict a few years ago. The goal is to plunge that isthmus into war to prevent its being used by Russia when the US invades Iran.

Danish Central Bank Warns Of "Risk Illusion", Fears "Fire Sale" Plunge In Asset Prices

Having slashed rates below zero and unleashed various rounds of asset-purchases, the Riksbank (Denmark's central bank) recently warned the rest of the world that "we have reached the limits of monetary policy." Now, however, Denmark's Systemic Risk Council has raised the financial system warning level to DEFCON1, warning that low levels of interest rates have led to excessive risk-taking and risk illusion among borrowers and credit institutions... and low market liquidity combijed with sudden shifts in risk perceptions may still lead to significant falls in asset prices and fire sales.

Saker rant about a stolen Europe

My latest column about Europe has elicited a lot of reactions, more than I expected, and I feel that I have to follow up by answering some of the comments made and by simply sharing with you not so much my thoughts as my feelings about Europe and her plight. Careful here, this will be a angry rant, written with sadness and despair in my heart, and with no regard whatsoever for good manners or political correctness (or spelling and grammar, for that matter)

Anti-elite sentiment may lead to Brexit, warns PM's 'best friend'

David Cameron’s so-called “best friend” in European politics has warned the Prime Minister that he has made a potentially catastrophic miscalculation by calling an EU referendum that could spark the “disintegration of Europe as we know it”.

Fredrik Reinfeldt, the former prime minister of Sweden who spoke at the Conservative Party conference in 2006, told the Telegraph that he fears his old friend is in danger of losing the EU referendum on June 23 after because of rising anti-establishment sentiment in Europe.

Greece on brink of chaos as refugees riot over forced return to Turkey

The Greek government is bracing itself for violence ahead of the European Union implementing a landmark deal that, from Monday, will see Syrian refugees and migrants being deported back to Turkey en masse.

Rioting and rebellion by thousands of entrapped refugees across Greece has triggered mounting fears in Athens over the practicality of enforcing an agreement already marred by growing concerns over its legality. Islands have become flashpoints, with as many as 800 people breaking out of a detention centre on Chios on Friday.

“We are expecting violence. People in despair tend to be violent,” the leftist-led government’s migration spokesman, Giorgos Kyritsis, told the Observer.

Migrant smugglers use Facebook to promote Turkey-Italy trips bypassing sealed Balkan route

In an apparent effort to save their business following the EU-Turkey deal to deport illegal migrants from Greek islands, smugglers have launched a Facebook ad campaign offering refugees trips via Italy instead of the previously popular Balkan route.

The advertisement that appeared on Thursday on Facebook sold trips for $4,000 per person. It offered migrants a passage from Mersin port on the Mediterranean coast of southern Turkey into Italy.

“Diversity comes with challenges. But diversity is humanity’s destiny.”

“There is not going to be, even in the remotest places of this planet, a nation that will not see diversity in its future. That’s where humanity is heading.”

Israel's Mossad Intelligence Agency Runs ISIS: UK Labour MP

The London-based Jewish Chronicle and Sunday Times have reported over the past several days that Campbell was suspended pending a party investigation after allegedly posting a claim on Facebook that the Israel's Mossad intelligence agency runs ISIS. He is also said to have claimed Israel was behind this month's terrorist bombing in Brussels, Haaretz Reports.

But Britain's Independent news website, which added that Campbell alleged on Facebook that ISIS has refrained from attacking Israel "because the dog doesn't bite his own tail," said the Labour Party member denied having been suspended.

NATO: Worse Than ‘Obsolete’

In short, NATO expansion was – and is – a crony capitalist’s dream, albeit not the sort that gets the same amount of attention from “libertarian” critics of such boondoggles as the Ex-Im Bank, who regularly remind us that Boeing is the Bank’s biggest customer. Forgotten (or evaded) is the fact that Boeing (or Lockheed-Martin, General Dynamics, etc.) gets billions whenever a new applicant is added to NATO’s ranks and has to modernizes its forces.

Forget the EU Subplot; Maidan Was About Splitting Ukraine From Russia

Kiev's aspirations to join the EU have been struck another serious blow, with the Dutch prime minister saying that Ukraine may never be allowed membership in the bloc. Experts suggest that the remarks are another confirmation that Brussels never planned on granting Ukraine membership, and simply used it for its geopolitical tug-of-war with Moscow.

Europe Continues To Court "Prince In Brussels" Erdogan

Erdogan has boasted that he is proud of boldly blackmailing EU leaders into paying him protection money.

Erdogan's threats were almost criminally sinister: "... the EU will be confronted with more than a dead boy on the shores of Turkey. There will be 10,000 or 15,000. How will you deal with that?"

According to the agreement, 80 million Turkish citizens will have visa-free access to the European Union.

The nightmare scenario for a desperate EU is that no matter how much it bows to extortionist demands from Turkey, the migrant crisis will continue to grow. Even if Turkey closes down all migrant routes from Turkey into Europe, refugees could take new routes through North Africa or the Caucasus.

Meanwhile, 800,000 migrants are currently on Libyan territory waiting to cross the Mediterranean, according to French Defense Minister Jean-Yves le Drian.

US to Increase Armored Brigades in Eastern Europe

In 2012, the Obama Administration cut a pair of army brigades from Europe, in an effort to save money and to shift forces to other more combat–heavy areas. In early 2017, after Obama leaves office, the brigades will return.

The Pentagon is now saying they intend to send rotations of armored combat brigades to Eastern Europe, bringing the continued presence of combat forces back to where it was in 2011.

NATO Supreme Commander Gen. Philip Breedlove touted the deployments, claiming they are a “strong and balanced” response to Russia’s “aggression.” Breedlove is among several NATO officials who have been claiming Russia might invade Eastern Europe, and have been pushing ever-more US troops for the region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WHAT alleged "Russian aggression"?!?!?

Russia has done nothing to antagonize the West, and this is pure codswallop, fabricated to "groom" the West toward supporting a potential NATO war against Russia, which would be a complete, utter catastrophe for NATO and the West.

And why do I say this?!?

I say this because the US and NATO do not have the weaponry, the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia; that's a fact.

BREAKING: EXPLOSIONS REPORTED AT SWEDEN’S SECOND LARGEST AIRPORT

The airport, located outside Gothenburg, received a bomb threat on Thursday morning. As a result, police were placed in high visibility areas, police spokesperson Peter Adlersson told Expressen.

A couple of "suspicious" plastic bags were later found in the domestic hall. The hall was subsequently cordoned off, Adlersson said.

"We have found a suspicious object at Landvetter and received a direct threat to our airport...right now it's a police operation and all other information is through the police," said Swedavia press officer Charlotte Periasamy.

Earlier reports on social media stated that an explosion had occurred at the airport.

However, according to Forex Live, it seems the reported blast was a controlled explosion of the two suspicious bags, conducted by authorities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, the Forex Live report is true, and security was able to do controlled demolition on these bombs, it appears that Europe dodged another bullet, and that security at this airport got people safely evacuated.

I am seeing no reports of deaths or wounded peopled, so hopefully, this is the case.

Also, no group has yet taken responsibility for this attempted bombing.

The writing is on the wall for the European Union

The latest bomb attacks in Brussels are the clear proof that the attacks in Paris were not a fluke, but the first in what is likely to be a long string of similar terror attacks. Such attacks are really nothing new, this is exactly what Russia has to endure in the 1990s, from the same people and for the same reasons. But whereas Russia eventually succeeded in defeating both the Chechen Wahabi insurgency and the Chechen Wahabi terrorism, Europe appears to lack all the resources needed to prevail. What is even worse, EU leaders appear to be dead set in their current russophobic policies thereby cutting themselves off the much needed help Russia could offer.

Fit In Or Get Out: Muslim Extremists' Days in Denmark Are Numbered

The Danish People's Party wants Muslim extremists to have their citizenship revoked and be deported from Denmark back to their home countries.

According to the Danish newspaper Extrabladet, there are many indications that the immigration-critical People's Party's bill is destined to get support from fellow parliamentary parties.

The background to the new bill is a documentary series that was aired by the Danish TV-channel TV2 earlier this month. In the documentary, two Danish Muslims visited mosques with a hidden camera. The film series featured secretly filmed imams boasting how Islam is about to conquer Europe and urging Muslims not to work, but instead grab as many benefits as possible.

The documentary series has received considerable attention in Denmark, and a proposal to revoke the citizenship of Muslim leaders who teach Muslim extremism was presented by the Danish People's Party (Danske Folkepartiet).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think we will see similar legislation proposed in many European countries which have experienced problems with refugees who absolutely do not want to assimilate into the culture and traditions of those parts of Europe in which they have applied for asylum.

Russian defense minister’s plane followed by NATO jets over Baltic Sea

Heading towards Kaliningrad over the neutral waters in the Baltic Sea, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu’s plane got shadowed by a bunch of NATO fighters that kept a distance of 2 kilometers from his aircraft, media reported.

The NATO jets did not approach the defense minister’s plane, which was escorted by several Su-27 fighter jets, according to pool correspondents of RIA Novosti, TASS and Interfax, who were on the same plane as the defense minister.

The correspondents identified the planes as Eurofighter Typhoons, multirole fighters designed for NATO.

Shoigu, who had repeatedly voiced concerns over NATO’s continuing build-up across Eastern and Central Europe, arrived in Russia’s western exclave of Kaliningrad on Monday to inspect the reconstruction of the Chkalovsk Military Airfield outside the city.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the NATO High Command: such actions are hugely irresponsible; juvenile in the extreme; embarrassing; and potentially dangerous, in terms of ratcheting up more tensions between the West and Russia.

That is precisely the polar opposite of what the world needs to happen right now, which is good faith negotiations between Russia, the US government, and the west, to resolve their geopolitical, and economic, differences.

And just in case you didn't get the memo,NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Americans do not want war with Russia, or anyone else at this point, thank you very much.

“Suicide Bombers” Known to, Imprisoned by Security Agencies BEFORE Brussels Attack

It is now revealed that not only were at least three bombers involved in the March 22 Brussels attack well-known to Western security agencies, two – brothers Brahim and Khalid El Bakraoui – were both arrested, charged, and imprisoned for violent crimes in 2010 and 2011, the elder brother for shooting at police with an AK-47s automatic rifle during a holdup, and the younger brother for carjacking and possession of several AK-47s, respectively.

It is also now confirmed that the elder brother, Brahim El Bakraoui, was arrested and deported from Turkey last year for suspected terrorist activity, but not before Ankara attempted to notify Brussels in order for El Bakraoui to be detained upon his arrival back in the EU. Brussels, however, failed categorically to act on the alert, allowing El Bakraoui to return home without consequence.

A Victorian-era illness is suddenly spreading in Europe

The stuff of Victorian nightmares is marching through the country once again: cases of scarlet fever have hit a 50-year high.

After barely 2,000 annual cases of the highly contagious illness in recent years, there were 17,586 in England and Wales in 2015. Particularly bad outbreaks have hit London, Yorkshire and the Midlands, and a “peak season” is expected over the next few weeks. Near my home in Norfolk, school classrooms have been disinfected after outbreaks, which most commonly affect two- to eight-year-olds.

The reason for its return is baffling scientists, but the fever has taken an interesting journey since the 19th century.

Riot police use water cannon on the streets of Brussels: 'Peace' march organised in wake of terror attacks is hijacked by far-right protesters making Nazi salutes 

Riot police have descended on the centre of Brussels today after hundreds of far-right protesters hijacked a peace march in the Belgian capital.

They gathered at Place de la Bourse in Brussels this afternoon and unfurled a banner denouncing ISIS before police used a water cannon on the angry crowd.

In scenes that compounded a week of grief for Belgians, protesters calling themselves 'The Nation' were seen making Nazi salutes as they became embroiled in a heated argument with pro-migrant groups.

Refugee Crisis: Using Chaos To Build Power

While the establishment’s demands on Europe to accept millions of Middle Eastern refugees have been couched in “humanitarian” rhetoric, the real agenda is nothing of the sort. Rather than helping out their fellow human beings, globalist forces actually created the refugee crisis and the suffering behind it. And they are using it to advance multiple, related agendas — primarily globalism and statism. That the crisis is being exploited to undermine Western culture, national sovereignty, and even nationhood itself is now beyond dispute. Top globalists are openly bragging about it.

Billionaire globalist and open-borders zealot George Soros, in denouncing European officials trying to control the human tsunami coming across their borders, similarly declared, “Our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle.”

Clamoring for War: Belgium Airstrikes Cannot Remove ISIL

Finding a "renewed purpose and a unifying threat,” Belgium has confirmed plans to carry out airstrikes on ISIL targets in Syria as part of the US-led coalition after the Brussels deadly attacks earlier this week, which claimed the lives of at least 31 people and injured over 300.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Syria has recaptured Palmyra. All that is left is Raqqa and that is about to fall. The Brussels false-flag is being used to justify an invasion of Syria to remove Assad, part of a nearly 5 year attempt by the US to take control of the nation and its resources. But I rather doubt the Russian Air Force will just sit on the ground and let it happen.

Hillary Clinton's record is a monument to mendacity

In response to the terrorist attacks in Brussels, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called for the creation of a "new, unified, European border and coast guard” in order to protect a European continent that is under "unprecedented pressure from refugees and migrants.” She also said that she would like to see a bigger investment in defense and security from European countries, claiming "there is also more they can do to share the burden with us."

Clinton’s call for a militarized EU reflects with a growing among political and military hawks in Washington that the solution to the destabilization of the Middle East, rooted in the disastrous military interventions staged by Washington and its allies over recent years, is the destabilization of Europe.

Project White Genocide: World War Three Has Already Begun

This is a war unlike any other war in history. It is taking place silently and surreptitiously under the very noses of its victims. Roughly 95-99 per cent of the victims of this war, scattered over several continents in the traditional White homelands of the European people, remain blissfully unaware that they are about to be dispossessed and genocided. Some of them, like lambs being led to the slaughterhouse, have now begun to bleat and give signs of incipient alarm. In the videos below, you will hear the first sounds of this unhappy bleating

Erdogan 'Believes in Radical Islam' Says Jordan King

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan “believes in a radical Islamic solution” to the conflicts in the Middle East region, Jordan's King Abdullah II said during a confidential meeting with U.S. congressional leaders in January, where he also accused Israel of turning a blind eye to al-Qaida’s affiliate Nusra Front in Syria.

Erdogan “believes in a radical Islamic solution to the problems in the region,” King Abdullah told the U.S. leaders in January according to a memo obtained by The Guardian.

“[The] fact that terrorists are going to Europe is part of Turkish policy, and Turkey keeps getting a slap on the hand, but they get off the hook,” he added.

A WORLD WAR HAS BEGUN. BREAK THE SILENCE

The Obama administration has built more nuclear weapons, more nuclear warheads, more nuclear delivery systems, more nuclear factories. Nuclear warhead spending alone rose higher under Obama than under any American president. The cost over thirty years is more than $1 trillion.

Where are those who will shatter the silence? Or do we wait until the first nuclear missile is fired?

Breaking/Exclusive: Erdogan to Belgium, Screw you, we will do it again!

We have something here that has been missed by everyone else, hiding in plain site. Belgium claims it was not correctly notified by Turkey of Bakraoui being sent back…DEPORTED actually. But Erdogan has made a big mistake himself.

You cannot put a deported terrorist on a commercial airline, especially by himself. It it grossly illegal to do such. Anyone on the no fly list, which all terrorist suspects are supposed to be on, can never fly commercial for the rest of their lives.

Netanyahu’s links to French fraud brain exposed

A report has exposed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s shady relations with a French individual considered by French prosecutors as the “brain” behind one of the biggest frauds in history.

According to a recent report by French news website Mediapart, which was obtained by Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Netanyahu has had affiliations with French national Arnaud Mimran.

Mimran, along with his partners, is accused of stealing between 300 million to 1.6 billion euros in a fraud case commonly referred to in Europe as “the scam of the century.”

Netanyahu denies receiving perks from French-Jewish alleged fraudster

A French journalist said he had proof that a defendant in a major fraud trial set to begin in Paris donated funds to Israel’s Likud party and gave personal favors to Benjamin Netanyahu before he became prime minister.

Arnaud Mimran, a French Jew whose trial is set to begin in May for allegedly defrauding, with several partners, the European Union out of 282 million euros, allowed Netanyahu to use a large apartment on Paris’ Avenue Victor Hugo, according to Fabrice Arfi, a journalist for the Mediapart news site. He shared the findings of his investigation with Haaretz, which published a report about it Friday.

“Satanic cocktail” of nails and acetone used in devilish Brussels bomb design

Nearly four days have passed since four men detonated explosives-laden belts and luggage in the Brussels airport and metro killing nearly two dozen people and injuring hundreds and there’s still quite a bit of ambiguity regarding who exactly is dead, who’s still at large, and who was at the scene in the first place.

Week Twenty-two of the Russian Military Intervention in Syria: Putin Announces a New Strategy

Putin himself has clearly said today that Russia will remain in control of the Syrian airspace:

All the components of the deployed air defence system, including close range Pantsir-F and long-range S-400 Triumph units will be on regular duty. I would like to note that we have significantly restored the potential of the Syrian air defence forces as well. All the parties concerned have been made aware of this. We proceed from fundamental international norms – nobody has the right to violate the airspace of a sovereign country, Syria in this case.

“Suicide Bombers” Known to, Imprisoned by Security Agencies BEFORE Brussels Attack

By Tony Cartaclucci

It is now revealed that not only were at least three bombers involved in the March 22 Brussels attack well-known to Western security agencies, two – brothers Brahim and Khalid El Bakraoui – were both arrested, charged, and imprisoned for violent crimes in 2010 and 2011, the elder brother for shooting at police with an AK-47s automatic rifle during a holdup, and the younger brother for carjacking and possession of several AK-47s, respectively.

It is also now confirmed that the elder brother, Brahim El Bakraoui, was arrested and deported from Turkey last year for suspected terrorist activity, but not before Ankara attempted to notify Brussels in order for El Bakraoui to be detained upon his arrival back in the EU. Brussels, however, failed categorically to act on the alert, allowing El Bakraoui to return home without consequence.

YOUR DAILY DOSE OF BOOGA BOOGA! ISIS Sends 400 Trained Fighters to Europe To Attack From “Interlocking, Semiautonomous Cells”

As ISIS unleashes more attacks, the pressure for military action in the Middle East is going to become very intense. The qui bono is quite apparent...

Via Michael Snyder: The recent attacks in Paris and in Brussels were just the tip of the iceberg of a massive wave of Islamic terror that is soon coming to Europe. As you will see below, the Associated Press is reporting that ISIS has specially trained “at least 400 attackers” and has already sent them into Europe with specific instructions to conduct terror operations.

Security officials have told The Associated Press that the Islamic State group has trained at least 400 attackers and sent them into Europe for terror attacks.

Foreknowledge of the Brussels Bombing: Why the Dots Are Not Connected

what is unprecedented about Tuesday’s events in Brussels is the rapidity with which the extent of state foreknowledge of the attacks has been revealed.
On Wednesday, Israeli daily Ha’aretz revealed that Belgian intelligence had precise information on when the attacks would occur and what their targets would be.

The next day, Turkish President Recep Erdogan said that one of the attackers involved in the airport bombing, Ibrahim el-Bakraoui, had been twice deported from Turkey to the Netherlands after trying to enter Syria, and that Belgian authorities had been told of his affiliation with Islamist militias. Ibrahim’s brother, Khalid, who participated in the attack on the Maelbeek metro station, was known to have been involved in November’s Paris attacks and had an international arrest warrant issued against him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You have to take a good long look at this event, and previous terrorist events like it, and ask the question: cui bono?!? Who benefits?!?

And what are the agendas?!?

First, most probably, was the attempt to tar Syria with the claim that these attacks were planned in Raqqa; however, no concrete information has come forward to support this claim. The US government hoped that this would mobilise Americans to believe that "Syria must be stopped", and that a ground invasion of this country was the only way to end these attacks.

Fortunately, Americans have seen far too many of these false flags to put any credence into such codswallop, so there was no traction on public opinion from these incidents.

And when Kerry went go Moscow to wag his finger at Putin and Lavrov, insisting Al-Assad had to go, and now, he most probably got laughed out of the conference room.

The second was most probably to stop movement toward the Brexit, Frexit, and Grexit, and prevent Britain, France, and Germany from leaving the EU, but bind those members together even more closely through the establishment of an EU security force, separate from Interpol. Though I doubt this will happen, due to the economic problems each country is facing, as being part of the EU.

But what concerns me is that, if these agendas were not fulfilled by these horrific acts, what is next, and how will the US presstitutes and whorespondents be ordered to "spin it"?!?

BEX Alert!!! - "Poor intel sharing within EU played role in Brussels attacks – Ex-CIA head"

The former head of the NSA and CIA, Michael Hayden, has castigated EU secret services for being too fixated on privacy issues and for suffering from poor intelligence sharing in combatting terrorism, saying that those gaps led to the Paris and Brussels attacks.

Hayden said that last week’s Brussels bombings and the November Paris attacks – which killed 31 and 130 people respectively – can be explained by European governments’ failures to make their intelligence services work more efficiently.

Drones Over Malta? Italy Becomes U.S. Drone Base of Operations

Op-Ed by Joseph Cachia

The Italian government has quietly begun allowing armed American drones to fly out from its soil at the Sigonella station (a NATO and U.S. naval air-base) near Catania in Sicily, Italy for military operations against (allegedly) the Islamic State in Libya and across North Africa. This is a breakthrough for Washington, as after more than a year of negotiations, Italy backed down and surrendered...

Trump Is Right—–Dump NATO Now

If you want to know why we have a $19 trillion national debt and a fiscal structure that will take that already staggering figure to $35 trillion and 140% of GDP within a decade, just consider the latest campaign fracas. That is, the shrieks of disbelief in response to Donald Trump’s sensible suggestion that the Europeans pay for their own defense.

The fact is, NATO has been an obsolete waste for 25 years. Yet the denizens of the Imperial City cannot even seem to grasp that the 4 million Red Army is no more; and that the Soviet Empire, which enslaved 410 million souls to its economic and military service, vanished from the pages of history in December 1991.

Brussels attacks: How Saudi Arabia's influence and a deal to get oil contracts sowed seeds of radicalism in Belgium

There are many reasons why Belgium has become a hotbed of radical Islamism. Some of the answers may lie in the implanting of Saudi Salafist preachers in the country from the 1960s. Keen to secure oil contracts, Belgium’s King Baudouin made an offer to Saudi King Faisal, who had visited Brussels in 1967: Belgium would set up a mosque in the capital, and hire Gulf-trained clerics. At the time, Belgium was encouraging Moroccan and Turkish workers to come into the country as cheap labour. The deal between the two Kings would make the mosque their main place of worship.

A Better Approach to Terrorism

incompetence is rewarded

snip: nobody blames government agencies or government police when terrorist acts are not thwarted. If anything, state actors are rewarded with increased budgets, personnel, and powers when horrific things happen on their watch. After the 9/11/2001 attacks in New York, for example, whole new federal agencies and departments were created. Federal intelligence agencies were vastly expanded. State and local police went on buying sprees for new militarized equipment.

Possible Signs Of False Flag In Brussels Now Emerging

Yet another terrorist attack in Europe has been blamed on Islamic extremists and ISIS and yet another instance of the suspects in the attacks having been previously known to security services and intelligence agencies in the years, months, weeks, and days leading up to the event. That is exactly what happened in Brussels, Belgium on March 22, 2016.

Lending credence to those who suggest that the Brussels attacks were false flags (meaning directed, orchestrated, or allowed by Western intelligence agencies), it is being reported that, yet again, the perpetrators were known to police and security services prior to the attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, one purpose of the "terror" (nudge nudge wink wink) attacks is to scare the member states of the European Union into dropping their dreams of an exit form the slavery of the European Central Bank.
