Rita Katz, who 'Found' the Sotloff video, Caught on Camera Admitting to Her Con Job

Rita Katz says that her organization released the beheading of Stephen Sotloff video "before ISIS had a chance to" at the 1:33 mark. Did she also help Israel with the special effects on 9/11?

US ‘creating pretexts’ to attack Syria: Stephen Lendman

US President Barack Obama and some members of Congress are “creating pretexts” to target the government of President Bashar al-Assad, not the ISIL militant group, Stephen Lendman told Press TV on Saturday.

“There are endless pretexts that can be created,” Lendman stated. “It’s astonishing that the killing by any means of two individuals, Americans or anybody else, could be a pretext for going into war, but Obama will use whatever he can get,” Lendman added.

Gorbachev on Ukraine: Terrifying massacre in store for Europe

To resolve the conflict in Ukraine, it is highly important to resume the dialogue between Moscow and Washington, as "their role and responsibility is special," first president of the USSR, Mikhail Gorbachev believes. Earlier, Gorbachev stated that Europe may face "terrifying massacre" because of the current crisis in Ukraine. According to him, "too much is at stake; dangers and risks are too high."

Did Major Countries Agree Not to Disclose Key Details in Downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17?

PROFESSOR STEPHEN COHEN: So, bring NATO—I mean, bring Ukraine into NATO, and all this stuff will be up and ready. And then it will just take the shootdown of a Malaysian aircraft, about which everybody has forgotten. Still nobody knows who did it. There seems to have been an agreement among the major powers not to tell us who did it. Was suggested wasn’t the rebels, wasn’t Russia, after all. But it would take something like that, which can happen in these circumstances, to launch something that was unthinkable.

AMY GOODMAN: What do you mean there seems to be an agreement between the major countries?

The Atlantic Alliance’s “Holy War” against the Islamic State (ISIS): NATO’s Role in the Recruitment of Islamic Terrorists

While NATO leaders in Newport Wales debate the Atlantic Alliance’s role “in containing a mounting militant threat in the Middle East”, it is worth recalling that in 2011 at the outset of the war in Syria, NATO became actively involved in the recruitment of Islamic fighters.

Mitt Romney: Military Cuts May Decimate US Defenses

In the midst of international crises triggered by Russia, China and the Islamic State, the White House and Congress risk "decimation of our defense" – and security – with continued cuts to the nation's military, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney warns.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that China has now officially made the Special High Interest Targets list!

But Romney is flat out wrong here. The international crisis has been triggered by the US, going back to the Project for the New American Century and its policy of using the United States, the world's sole superpower, to conquer the rest of the planet!

Russia to reopen Northern Fleet base in Arctic

Russia has dispatched a group of ships from its Northern Fleet to the Arctic, with the aim of restoring a permanent base in the region, Russia media say.

A detachment including two amphibious vessels and an anti-submarine ship set off from the fleet's base in Severomorsk, near the Norwegian border.

It will take equipment and personnel to the eastern New Siberian Islands.

Russia is boosting its naval presence in the Arctic as regional powers seek to claim its rich natural resources.

ISIS TO ATTACK ON 9/11/2014 !! FOX PUTS OUT AN ARTICLE THEN DELETES IT FROM THE WEBSITE

We all knew it was coming…we just didn’t know what or when. Here is a leak by Fox News saying that ISIS has planned to attack the USA on none other than… 9/11/2014. That day is historical to us all. That day led us to where we stand now. Where will it lead us if another attack happens on that day again? There are a lot of worries being voiced across the board from Chuck Hagel to Rick Perry saying that the next 9/11 is imminent! Did they actually mean the exact date of 9/11? Well according to this Fox News leak they did! This seems like perfect timing as Obama has finally authorized attacks on ISIS (ISIL).

ISRAELI INTELLIGENCE ASSET BEHEADED BY ISIS

Congratulations USA. You found the perfect pretext to return your troops to the Middle East. Your creation, ISIS, beheaded a second American, Steve Sotloff, and you won't take it anymore. The problem is Satloff was an Israeli intelligence asset. And that muddies an already murky war.

Cameron seems to be considering breaking International law, not once but twice.

First he is considering arming the Kurds in Iraq without the permission from the Iraqi Government. Perhaps he thinks there really is a Kurdistan.

ISIS, ISIL or IS is armed, funded and trained by the USA. Their objective in Iraq is to totally destabalise the nation and weakening it by splitting it into three, part Kurd, part Iraqi and the remainder an Islamic Caliphate.

Secondly he’s openly suggesting that the UK should bomb parts of Syria without the permission of the Syrian Government , not any different in the slightest with Blair’s illegal invasion of Iraq. Cameron declares the Assad Government to be illegitimate.

That being the case in his mind, means that not a country in the world is safe from invasion or attack, Cameron can simply declare the Government to be illegitimate.

FALSE FLAG ALERT - Al Qaeda Has Control Of Missing Planes In Libya

Eleven commercial jets have reportedly been stolen in recent weeks in Libya, and Western intelligence agencies have begun warning they could be used in terror attacks on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Bill Gertz, Senior Editor of the Washington Free Beacon said he has spoken with intelligence officials who told him this poses a real danger and the CIA is actively trying to locate them. Gertz told John that Al Qaeda has control of the commercial planes which could be used for an attack on US interests in the Middle East or as a way of transporting Al Qaeda terrorists.

F-35: Zombie Fighter-Bomber of American "Defense" Fantasies?

fficially, the U.S. government is “still hopeful” that its nuclear-capable F-35, already the world’s most expensive war machine, might someday work as promised more than a decade ago.

That was the best face Under Secretary of Defense Frank Kendall would put on the beleaguered, overdue, and over-budget “fifth generation” Joint Strike Fighter just three weeks after a test version of the F-35 burst into flames on a Florida runway. Kendall’s hope that the F-35 would make a July appearance at the Farnsborough air show in Britain went up in smoke shortly after, and the $400 billion plane’s performance since then has not encouraged much greater hope. As Kendall said in early September, "I am getting, over time, more confident that we've got our arms around that problem and are solving it."

To fulfill its full military-industrial hope, the stealth warplane will need to find reliable engines, develop software that works, win at least two more lawsuits, and find more willing buyers.

David Cameron warns UK will not rule out military action in Iraq

On Thursday (September 4), as NATO members arrived for a two-day summit in Wales, British Prime Minister David Cameron announced he would not rule out any type of military action against Islamic State (formerly known as Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay David, if you really feel that way; here's your rifle. Here's your parachute. We ran out of the desert camo but here is a bright day-glo orange jumpsuit left over from the CIA torture centers. Watch your head climbing into that transport plane and we will call Iraq and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But we remember how we were tricked into the first invasion of Iraq with lies about stolen Kuwaiti incubators.

We remember how we were tricked into the second invasion of Iraq with lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons and your predecessor's 'dodgy dossier.'

So under the prudent assumption that we are being lied to yet again to trick us into a third invasion of Iraq you will understand if we choose to sit this one out and keep our children safe at home.

Have fun!

Vanishing Airliners, “ISIS”, and 9/11. “Timing is Crucial in Politics”

Flight Maneuver Hints at Cause of F-35 Fire

The U.S. Defense Department official in charge of the F-35 fighter jet program said a previous flight test maneuver played a role in an engine fire that led to a temporary grounding of the fleet and ongoing flying restrictions.

Speaking during a defense conference Wednesday at the National Press Club, Air Force Lt. Gen. Christopher Bogdan said three weeks before an F-35A made by Lockheed Martin Corp. caught fire during takeoff June 23 at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, it was flown in a manner designed to test the performance of its g-force, roll and yaw characteristics within designed limits known as the flight envelope.

The Publicizing of ISIS

ISIS is using these be-headings for their brutal agenda, but the mainstream media (MSM) are in a strange way – doing their bidding.

Why – why would Murdoch’s paper, The Herald Sun, have a full spread front page (above) of Steven Sotloff and the London ‘killer’, PLUS an inside double spread (below) of much the same image? (He seemed to be flashing a real knife this time). Taking nothing away from the grief and pain of the Foley and Sotloff families – or the significance of this news event – but why not a smaller picture and a more sober commentary of what happened. But NO. They are publicizing the violence; propagating the threats; and using the ISIS violence and threats of violence for the intimidation or coercion on the Australian Public. Why is the publicity around this so blatantly provocative and inflammatory? We are being terrorized? And for what purpose?

Who's Telling the 'Big Lie' on Ukraine?

f you wonder how the world could stumble into World War III – much as it did into World War I a century ago – all you need to do is look at the madness that has enveloped virtually the entire U.S. political/media structure over Ukraine where a false narrative of white hats vs. black hats took hold early and has proved impervious to facts or reason.

The original lie behind Official Washington’s latest “group think” was that Russian President Vladimir Putin instigated the crisis in Ukraine as part of some diabolical scheme to reclaim the territory of the defunct Soviet Union, including Estonia and other Baltic states. Though not a shred of U.S. intelligence supported this scenario, all the “smart people” of Washington just “knew” it to be true.

Obama vows to ‘destroy and degrade’ Islamic State after Sotloff beheading

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world.

Webmaster's Commentary:

US Troops Are Heading To Ukraine

While only 'humanitarian adviser' boots on the ground are present in Iraq (and Syria), Reuters reports that preparations are under way near Ukraine's western border for a joint military exercise this month with more than 1,000 troops from the United States and its allies. As Obama told reporters last week, "that a military solution to this problem is not going to be forthcoming," it seems a little odd 'strategically' to go ahead with the Rapid Trident exercise Sept. 16-26 as a sign of the commitment of NATO states to support non-NATO member Ukraine, entailing the first significant deployment of U.S. and other personnel to Ukraine since the crisis erupted.

THE MOTHER OF ALL BLOWBACK

Given that the US had made an unbelievable mess of its Mideast policies, the president is right to pause and think, something his shoot –from- the- lip Republican critics rarely do. They are demanding the US attack both Iraq and Syria without asking “what then oh brave Washington warriors?” These are the Republicans who ardently supported George Bush’s catastrophic invasion and destruction of Iraq.

The problem is that too many cooks in Washington are spoiling its Mideast soup.

FLASHBACK - WMD dossier was 'sexed up', Iraq war enquiry is told by intelligence officer

TONY Blair’s attempts to justify the war in Iraq were shattered by explosive new evidence yesterday.

The ex-Prime Minister and his spin doctor Alastair Campbell have always denied “sexing up” evidence to make a case for the invasion by suggesting Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

But a senior intelligence officer told Sir John Chilcot’s inquiry into the conflict that was what happened.

Major General Michael Laurie, the former head of Defence Intelligence who helped draw up Downing Street’s “dodgy dossier”, wrote to the panel to say: “I and those involved in its production saw it as that, and that was the direction we were given.”

His damning account of how intelligence was spun to fit the case for war is among new documents released by the panel yesterday. They also include a memo drawn up two years before the invasion by the then head of MI6, suggesting getting rid of Saddam would help secure oil supplies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you encounter one of those poor fools still desperately clinging to the myth of the US being the good guys and the Russians the bad guys as offered by the corporate media, just ask if the remember being lied to about weapons of mass destruction, and when they answer in the affirmative, just ask them why they think they are being told the truth now. I find that to be very effective in breaking through the denial.

Totalitarian Collectivism

The New World Order has been in place for centuries. Is it not time to start calling the NWO by another name? A descriptive term that encapsulates the essence of the beast would be a Nefarious Warrior Organism. Such a phrase strips away the ridiculous notion that there is any order in the malevolent organization of the parasitic global structure, based upon perpetual and permanent warfare. This depiction more closely resembles reality, even if the master mass media refuses to acknowledge How the World Really Works. Discard any condemnation that criticism of the established order rests upon conspiratorial fantasy or pre-medieval prejudices. Explaining away or ignoring basic human nature in a "PC" culture ultimately requires the adoption of a depraved Totalitarian Collectivism system. - See more at: http://www.batr.org/totalitariancollectivism/090114.html#sthash.yP2udA...

David Wilcock: "Two of The Most Significant Events in This Secret War.."

Glad Ben caught the epic JP Morgan computer hack, temporarily blamed on Russia, and the revealing statement from Kissinger expressing his regret about the crumbling of the New World Order. These were two of the most significant events in this secret war to have appeared last week.

Both of these show that moves are becoming increasingly high-level and desperate. Everything we are seeing suggests this is all building up to some sort of epic climax.

I encountered some hate comments about the work I have done recently, and the main criticism seems to be “nothing has happened… David and his sources have been thoroughly and totally discredited.”

Patience! Just because it hasn’t happened YET doesn’t mean it WON’T. Look at the evidence. It is becoming increasingly obvious that this secret war is real, and is building up to something big. Only so much can be done before it becomes openly known to everyone.

Russia’s Defense Ministry ridicules NATO’s photo-proof of invasion in Ukraine

It makes no sense to comment in detail on the satellite imagery released by NATO as “proof” of Russia’s military involvement in Ukraine, Defense Ministry’s spokesman said, pointing out that even high NATO officials were hesitant to put their names on it.

Referring to NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Supreme Allied Commander Europe Philip Breedlove, and NATO Spokesperson Oana Lungescu, Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov ridiculed the so-called NATO proof.

“You know, it has become ridiculous… If earlier, someone would at least put their names on those images, be it Breedlove, Rasmussen, or even Lungescu, now, they are hesitant,” Konashenkov said as cited by RIA Novosti. “It makes no sense to seriously comment on this.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Keep in mind that Kiev purchased 58 surplus T-72 tanks from Hungary some weeks ago, shipping them through the Czech Republics in an attempt to conceal their real destination. That satellite photo could easily be of Kiev's T-72s, painted with Russian markings.

Washington Piles Lie Upon Lie

The latest Washington lie, this one coming from NATO, is that Russia has invaded Ukraine with 1,000 troops and self-propelled artillery.

How do we know that this is a lie? Is it because we have heard nothing but lies about Russia from NATO, from US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, from assistant secretary of state Victoria Nuland, from Obama and his entire regime of pathological liars, and from the British, German, and French governments along with the BBC and the entirety of the Western media?

This, of course, is a good reason for knowing that the latest Western propaganda is a lie. Those who are pathological liars don’t suddenly start telling the truth.

Iranian sail boat defended itself against U.S. Coast Guard

As preposterous as it may sound, the U.S. coast guard boards boats everywhere in the world, not just along the American coast, and if things are not perfect, they detain everyone on the boat and burn it, even if it is a multi million dollar yacht. Knowing this policy, an Iranian fishing boat that was operating off the coast of Iran refused to allow boarding by the U.S. coast guard. The Coast Guard fired on this boat, but according to the Washington Post, left it floating with all aboard. At the end of this report is a link to a Washington Post article that downplays the Coast Guard's hostile role in international waters, and the attitude expressed in the Washington Post article says a LOT.

Army rocket blown up during failed launch in Kodiak

A test of a new Army weapon failed 4 seconds into flight from the Kodiak Launch Complex early Monday when the rocket went awry and was blown to bits by flight controllers.

The fiery end to the rocket short-circuited the second test of a hypersonic glider designed to fly so fast it can reach anywhere on the globe in about an hour. The test target was the U.S. missile facility on Kwajalein atoll in the Marshall Islands, about 4,000 miles away.

Debris from the three-stage, solid-fuel launch vehicle rained down on the state-owned launch facility. No one was injured but buildings were damaged, said Craig Campbell, president and chief executive officer of Alaska Aerospace Corp.

The Defense Department leased the launch complex for the test, paying the state about $5 million, Campbell said.

Hillary Clinton represents imperial arrogance: Stephen Lendman

An American political commentator says Hillary Clinton represents imperial arrogance, and she was a wretched secretary of state.

“Hillary Clinton certainly is in the news these days.

US policies can result in next World War: American journalist

Washington’s policies can “explode the entire Middle East” and they can “result in the next World War,” an American political commentator says.

In an interview with Press TV on Monday, James Morris, editor of America-hijacked.com, said US military interventions in other countries, including the 2003 invasion of Iraq, have created brutal terrorist groups like ISIL.

ISIL “is the result of the failed US invasion of Iraq,” Morris said.

China’s Reaction: America Is A “Disgusting Thief Spying Over His Neighbor’s Fence”

Only hours ago the US government announced that a Chinese fighter jet had intercepted an American military patrol plane over international waters east of China’s Hainan Island.

A Pentagon spokesman called China’s actions “unsafe and unprofessional”, and blasted such unprovoked aggression.

There was no mention as to why a US surveillance plane was just off the Chinese coast to begin with. They’re just playing the victim… and rather loudly at that.

U.S. Sends Second Carrier to Asia Amid Tensions with China

The Navy is sending a second aircraft carrier strike group to the Asia Pacific region amid new tensions with China over a dangerous aerial encounter between a Chinese interceptor and Navy P-8 surveillance craft.

The strike group led by the USS Carl Vinson departed San Diego for the Pacific on Friday, the Navy said in an announcement of what it terms a “planned” deployment.

Bonhomme Richard flight deck unfit for flight operations, could delay next deployment

The USS Bonhomme Richard will likely miss its next underway deployment after a botched $3 million resurfacing of the amphibious assault ship’s flight deck.

The ship had undergone the resurfacing less than a month ago.

“A recent application of non-skid coating on the flight deck of the USS Bonhomme Richard was not up to Navy safety standards and is being reapplied,” Cmdr. William Marks, spokesman for 7th Fleet, said in an email to Stars and Stripes. “This will cause an increase in port time and decrease in underway days for Bonhomme Richard.”

Earlier this month, Senator John McCain indicated that it was time for the United States to consider selling lethal weapons to Vietnam after a 30-year embargo. The recent maritime standoff between Beijing and Hanoi over Chinese oil exploration off the central coast of Vietnam exposed Hanoi’s many strategic weaknesses.

Providing Vietnam with coast guard and maritime systems as a first step - and eventually radar, fighter aircraft and spare parts for leftover American military equipment - would bolster Hanoi’s strategic capabilities vis-a-vis China and give substance to the "comprehensive partnership" announced last year between Hanoi and Washington.

“The Russian Aggression Prevention Act” (RAPA): A Direct Path to Nuclear War with Russia

The Russian Aggression Prevention Act”, introduced to Congress by U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), will set the US on a path towards direct military conflict with Russia in Ukraine.

Any US-Russian war is likely to quickly escalate into a nuclear war, since neither the US nor Russia would be willing to admit defeat, both have many thousands of nuclear weapons ready for instant use, and both rely upon Counterforce military doctrine that tasks their military, in the event of war, to preemptively destroy the nuclear forces of the enemy.

US Begins Selling "Syria Intervention" Using ISIS Pretext

In a previous report titled, "Growing Mayhem - US Operating on Both Sides of Syrian-Iraqi Border," it was reported that (emphasis added):

Clearly, the answer, left for readers to arrive at on their own, is that these "successful" US airstrikes in Iraq must be carried over into Syria - where mission creep can do the rest, finally dislodging the Syrian government from power after an ongoing proxy war has failed to do so since 2011. After arming and aiding the Kurds in fighting ISIS in Iraq, the US will attempt to make a similar argument regarding the arming of terrorists in Syria and providing them direct US air support to defeat ISIS - and of course - Damascus.

Joshua Katz, an Army veteran and former CIA operations officer who served as Senior Policy Advisor to the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said it is “very, very, true” that ISIS may have crossed the southern border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obviously this will not go over very well with the pro-illegal immigration agenda, but what is being done here is the creation of a plausible means for the terrorists (nudge nudge wink wink) to have brought the bomb into the US. Personally, I think the weapon is already inside the US and has been for quite some time, either a bomb crafted from some of the Uranium Israel stole during the NUMEC scandal or the missing nuke from the Minot incident.

FLASHBACK - U.S. Suspected Israeli Involvement in 1960s Missing Uranium

Declassified documents from the 1970s provide new evidence that federal officials believed bomb-grade uranium that disappeared from a Pennsylvania nuclear facility in the 1960s was likely taken for use in a clandestine Israeli atomic-weapons program.

The documents, obtained earlier this year through public-records requests by a Washington-based nonprofit group, also indicate that senior officials wanted to keep the matter under wraps for fear it could undermine U.S. Middle East peace efforts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is estimated that Israel acquired at least 118 kilograms of weapons-grade uranium. 16 kilograms of uranium is enough to make a working nuclear weapon. So Israel acquired enough uranium to make seven bombs. Now the trick of getting a "terrorist" nuclear weapon into the United States is getting it INTO the United States, but Israel started out with enough uranium inside the United States to make 7 bombs, then smuggled all or part of it back to Israel. It would have been trivial for Israel to leave enough weapons-grade uranium inside the US to build a bomb, and there is still the unexplained radiation surrounding Israel's New York Embassy. Getting that weapons-grade uranium is the hard part of building a bomb. Once you have that, the rest is easy. All a uranium bomb does is take two sub-critical pieces of uranium and slap them together. Such a bomb makes for a great means of blackmailing the US government, or staging the ultimate terror false-flag to trigger WW3. Just something to keep in mind while ABCNNBBCBSFOXDRUDGE scream at you that ISIS is going to nuke a US city!

Adam Gadahn, the "American Al Qaeda" was revealed to be Adam Pearlman, grandson of a member of the board of the ADL. Youssef Al Khattab, who ran the revolutionmuslim.com website, was outed as Joseph Cohen of Brooklyn. Even the name "Al Qaeda" was a problem, as it means "toilet" in Arabic slang.

So now the warhawks are back with a new production called "Islamic State" to scare us all into sending our children off to war, complete with phony videos with a man in a phony beard promising to fly the flag of ISIS over the White House, and a "beheading" video so phony hardly anyone is buying it.

This Map Shows Why The F-35 Has Turned Into A Trillion-Dollar Fiasco

The Pentagon has stuck with the F-35 Lightning Joint Strike Fighter program despite dozens of technical problems and delays, strategic concerns, and massive cost overruns that have nearly doubled the initial cost estimate, raising the cost of building the planes to around $400 billion with a lifetime cost of up to $1.5 trillion.

One reason why the project has become such a boondoggle is that many states and countries are significantly invested in the plane, relying on its production for income and jobs.

Every U.S. state but Alaska, Hawaii, Nebraska, and Wyoming has economic ties to the F-35, with 18 states counting on the project for $100 million or more in economic activity, according to primary contractor Lockheed Martin. All told, the project is supposedly responsible for 32,500 jobs in the U.S. Globally, another nine countries have major ties to the F-35.

“THEY PULLED ME BACK IN…”

How handy. All three US networks and the increasingly shackled BBC were ordered to drop Gaza reporting and refocus their camera teams on the suffering Yazidis and, all of a sudden, Iraq’s fleeing Christians.

This was a brilliant media ploy. The world, which was furious at the US for enabling Israel’s savaging of Gaza and killing of almost 2,000 Palestinians, switched its attention to the hitherto unknown Yazidis, and to Iraqi Christians. No one in the US had ever heard of Yazidis but that was ok. Uncle Sam to the rescue.

No mention was made that Iraq’s Christians had been safe and sound under President Saddam Hussein – even privileged – until President George Bush invaded and destroyed Iraq. We can expect the same fate for Syria’s Christians if the protection of the Assad regime is torn away by the US-engineered uprising. We will then shed crocodile tears for Syria’s Christians.

Occupation Forces

The US is unique in the world with regard to occupation. It has been estimated that the US has over 325,000 military personnel in over 1,000 overseas military bases in more than 150 countries, but statistics are widely conflicting.

Generally, the American troops arrive to deal with some sort of conflict (either invited or uninvited), but unlike most other armies, they tend to remain for a long time beyond the stated “need.”

There are those who praise this policy, stating that the US “keeps the world safe for democracy;” however, the US is known (at least to us outsiders) as a country that typically routs elected governments, installs corrupt and ineffectual puppet leaders, and seeks to control the occupied country as a satellite state.

M-16 THE RIFLE AND THE MYTH

In Vietnam, when the malfunction started to make its appearance and the combat soldier started asking why, he was told that it was his fault because he was not keeping his weapon clean. A further complication at the time was that there were two types of ammunition available. The IMR and the Ball Propellent became mixed as the Ball Propellent was being introduced and the IMR was being used up. Then it was said that the weapon needed a new buffer and that would cure the problem. With the new buffer the malfunction continued, and again the soldier was told it was his fault because he was not properly cleaning his rifle. The Army tried to blame him and the rifle. As it turns out, the blame for the malfunction rested with neither the soldier nor the M-16 rifle. It rested with the manufacture of 5.56 mm. ammunition with ball propellant, because it was cheaper than using IMR extruded propellant, and there was a huge surplus of old artillery powder from which ball propellant was manufactured.

It may make for bleak reading, but of the 162 countries covered by the Institute for Economics and Peace’s (IEP’s) latest study, just 11 were not involved in conflict of one kind or another.

US Officials: Israel Restocked Ammo During Gaza Offensive Without White House Approval

Israel secured supplies of ammunition from the Pentagon last month without the approval of the White House or the State Department, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

Since officials there were caught off guard as they tried to restrain Israel's campaign in Gaza, the administration of President Barack Obama has tightened controls on arms shipments to Israel, the newspaper said, quoting U.S. and Israeli officials.

But the case illustrated that the White House and the State Department had little influence over the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the paper said, quoting officials from both countries.

Iraq crisis: US and Britain call off rescue of Yazidis on Mount Sinjar

The US and Britain are stepping back from launching a risky military mission to rescue thousands of Iraqis stranded on Mount Sinjar after claiming that special forces on the ground found their condition was better than expected.

Declaring that the US bombing has succeeded in beating back forces from the Islamic State (Isis), the Pentagon said the planned rescue mission had been ruled out for the moment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, this "responsibility to protect" propaganda has cratered. The horrible things we were being told were done to the Yazidis didn't actually happen and the Yazidis are far better off than the Palestinians in Gaza, for whom nobody in the Israel-enslaved government will lift a finger.

But rest assured, the bombing and invasion of Iraq will continue, because the real goal is to regain control over which currency Iraq's oil will be sold for on the world market.

They, of course, also murdered and destroyed tens or hundreds of millions of people in the Middle East, in Africa, Asia and Oceania.

When I say ‘they’, I mean the West, and once again I refuse to make any distinction between the old colonial devils, Europe, and the new ones that come from the same roots, the same ‘culture’, but kill under the shade of their relatively new flags.

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

US submarine located, ‘pushed out’ of border waters - Russian Navy’s General Staff

Anti-submarine forces of the Russian Northern Fleet located and ‘pushed out’ from the Russian border waters a foreign submarine, a high-ranking representative of the Navy’s General Staff said on Saturday.

“On August 7, 2014, the Northern Fleet located in the Barents Sea a foreign submarine, supposedly of the Virginia class of the U.S. Navy,” the source said.

Combat Stress Among Veterans Is Found to Persist Since Vietnam

Most veterans who had persistent post-traumatic stress a decade or more after serving in the Vietnam War have shown surprisingly little improvement since then, and a large percentage have died, a new study finds, updating landmark research that began a generation ago. Members of minorities who enlisted before finishing high school were especially likely to develop such war-related trauma, as were those veterans who had killed multiple times in combat, the study found.

Interest in MH17 Fades as Sanctions & War Edge Closer

Once again the West has advanced its agenda forward by disingenuously leveraging tragedy to sell otherwise unjustifiable and undesirable measures against a member of the international community. Stronger European sanctions against Russia had just failed in the days prior to the downing of MH17, but in the wake of the disaster, passed with ease. Likewise, providing Kiev with weapons and training was becoming increasingly unthinkable as their human rights record and their affiliations and proclivities toward Nazism became increasingly difficult to cover up or spin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just because a shooting war against Russia would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government could possibly do right now, unfortunately, is no guarantee that this government will not do it.

And why?!?

This government is broke, both morally and fiscally. These pre-emptive wars, fought ultimately for private corporate, have bankrupted this country beyond belief.

There is also the issue of the emergence of the ruble as one of the world's more stable currencies, and many times now, countries will exchange their currency for that of the Russian ruble directly, bypassing the dollar completely.

Some in the bowels of power DC believe that a war against Russia will cause people to blame their misery on that war, and misdirect their anger, which would be better-placed against those in this country who have mismanaged our domestic and foreign policies, and the Fed's monetary policies, which cannot hold for very much longer.

I would like to politely point out that this country's military doesn't have the money, the manufacturing, or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia; and that is what makes the military option so scarily dangerous here.

Also, the Ukrainian military appears to be in complete disarray, with massive demonstrations against Poroschenko's conscription efforts, and with Ukrainian troops surrendering to their Russian counterparts on a daily basis.

There has been some noise in Congress about the US military sending "advisors" to Ukraine after the first of the year; this situation will not hold until the first of the year, and I seriously doubt it will hold until the end of next month, when Congress gets back into session.

I would not be surprised if the Obama Administration creates some kind of "false flag" on the Ukrainian/Russian border to kick things off, then invokes the War Powers Act.

Iron Dome blocked just 8 out of 120 rockets: Israeli military

The Israeli army has admitted that Israel’s Iron Dome missile system intercepted only eight out of nearly 120 rockets that were fired from the Gaza Strip into the occupied Palestinian territories on Sunday.

The military confirmed that around 110 rockets struck the occupied territories.

The development comes as the US Senate on Friday approved an additional USD 225 million in funding for the missile system despite Israel’s deadly war on the Gaza Strip.

US Cluster Bombing Legacy Continuing To Cost Lives In Laos

The Vietnam War era’s dark legacy of pervasive cluster bombing is still costing lives in Laos, nearly 40 years after the end of all hostilities in Southeast Asia. In this documentary feature, Journeyman Pictures meets the brave women who are trying to clear the bomb fields.

Laos has the notorious reputation for being the most heavily bombed country in the world. During the Vietnam War, the US dropped 2 million tonnes of explosives on Laotian territory. Even today, there is estimated to be up to 80 million unexploded munitions scattered across the countryside. Removing them is job that will likely take more than a lifetime to complete.

Are you Ready for Nuclear War?

The crisis provoked by American and European charges of Russian responsibility for the shooting down of flight MH17 has brought the world the closest it has been to global war since the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. But the situation today may be even more dangerous. A half century ago, the Kennedy administration—haunted by fears that miscalculations on either side could precipitate a nuclear exchange—sought to keep the lines of communications open and avoid the demonization of Soviet leaders.

NATO exerting pressure, not interested in MH17 investigation – Russia’s mission

Without waiting for MH17 crash investigators’ conclusions, NATO chief is eager to blame anti-Kiev forces, thus “exerting pressure” on the international team while providing no evidence to back the claims, Russia’s mission to NATO said.

The Russian mission to NATO has said that the bloc's Secretary General, Anders Fogh Rasmussen “decided not to wait until the end of #MH17 investigation” to blame the anti-Kiev forces for shooting down the plane, referring to Rasmussen's comments in Sunday's interview with the French Midi Libre.

The Pentagon's troubled, expensive new fighter jet

It's a state-of-the-art fighter jet that's supposed to seal America's dominance over the world's skies. Conceived in 1996, the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II was to be put into operation starting in 2010 to gradually replace the Pentagon's aging fleet of fighters, such as the F-16 and the F/A-18, many of which were built in the 1970s and '80s. But in the 18 years since its conception, the F-35 has proven to be so technologically ambitious that Lockheed can't get it finished; there have been endless delays, budget overruns, and technical failures. The plane was recently grounded again, because of an engine fire — the 13th grounding since 2007. Since the F-35 has been repeatedly redesigned, the cost of developing the plane has doubled to a record-breaking $400 billion — the most expensive weapons system ever. A single plane will cost $185 million to produce.

Putin Explains That Russian Sovereignty Under Attack By The Global Elite

Any nation that is part of an alliance gives up part of its sovereignty. This does not always meet the national interests of a given country, but this is their sovereign decision. We expect our national legal interests to be respected, while any controversies that always exist, to be resolved only through diplomatic efforts, by means of negotiations. Nobody should interfere in our internal affairs.

However, ever more frequently today we hear of ultimatums and sanctions. The very notion of state sovereignty is being washed out. Undesirable regimes, countries that conduct an independent policy or that simply stand in the way of somebody’s interests get destabilised. Tools used for this purpose are the so-called colour revolutions, or, in simple terms – takeovers instigated and financed from the outside.

US TAX DOLLARS CONTINUE TO PAY FOR CARNAGE IN GAZA

he Pentagon confirmed the Israeli military had requested additional ammunition to restock its dwindling supplies on July 20, with the US Defense Department approving the sale just three days later.

SALE ????

Did anyone see a receipt??

This might explain why you didn’t … the weapons were already in Israel.

Two of the requested munitions came from a little-known stockpile of ammunition stored by the US military on the ground in Israel for emergency use. The War Reserve Stockpile Ammunition-Israel is estimated to be worth $1 billion.

‘US paying for Israel’s systematic campaign of terror’

Israel is engaged in a systematic, cold blooded genocide against the people of Gaza, at the expense of US tax payers, says William Dores, political analyst who has visited Gaza twice as a member of a fact-finding mission.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By using your money to buy weapons for Israel's war crimes, the US Government has made you all accessories to those war crimes. And you cannot get off the hook by saying, "I am only obeying the government." The Nuremberg trials at the end of WW2 established the principle that simply following the orders of your superiors does not exonerate you of guilt. Only by openly opposing Israel's war crimes will history regard you as blameless for what is being done to Gaza.

The Cultivation of Hate

If there were any doubts that Western “leaders” live in a fantasy make-believe world constructed out of their own lies, the G-7 meeting and 70th anniversary celebration of the Normandy landing dispelled the doubts.

The howlers issuing from these occasions are enough to split your sides. Obama and his lap dog Cameron described the Normandy landing on June 6, 1944, as “the greatest liberation force that the world has ever known” and took all the credit for the US and Britain for the defeat of Hitler. No mention was made of the Soviet Union and the Red Army, which for three years prior to the Normandy landing had been fighting and defeating the Wehrmacht.

The Germans lost World War II at the Battle of Stalingrad, which was fought from August 23, 1942 until February 2, 1943, when most of the remnants of the powerful German Sixth Army surrendered, including 22 generals.

Folks Out There Have a “Distaste of Western Civilization and Cultural Values”

The Times then goes on to blame terrorism on “religious fanaticism…the anger among those left behind by globalization,” and the “distaste of Western civilization and cultural values” among the global dispossessed. The blinders and self-deception in such a statement are truly mind-boggling. As if corporate globalization, pushed by the U.S. government and its closest allies, with the help of the World Trade Organization, World Bank and IMF, had not unleashed a tremendous immiseration process on the Third World, with budget cuts and import devastation of artisans and small farmers. Many of these hundreds of millions of losers are quite aware of the role of the United States in this process. It is the U.S. public who by and large have been kept in the dark.

Onward global army ... maybe sooner than later?

The beauty, in the eyes of some, is that when things get really bad for the general population and more and more uprisings occur, an international army will better be able to step in and do crowd control (you know, keeping the peace) than a local army would, local soldiers being possibly reluctant to shoot real bullets at their own people. That may also be one of the reasons for the partnership with the US Northern Command - so that US troops could step in to put down a Canadian uprising, and vice versa.

Last, but still worth considering: maybe recruitment centres won't be needed if a draft is imposed, which of course would only occur if the predicted WWIII is not just a conspiracy fantasy.

I'm also getting the feeling our economy is going to tank (further), which means there will be lots of unemployed youth with no place to go but the military.

Worth Re-reading This Memorial Day: War is a Racket by Gen Smedley Butler

Major General Smedley Darlington Butler, USMC

1881 - 1940

Double recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor

"I spent 33 years and 4 months in active service as a member of our country's most agile military force--the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from second lieutenant to Major General. And during that period I spent most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism. I suspected I was part of a racket all the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all members of the military profession I never had an original thought until I left the service."
