Report: North Korea cultivating marijuana to fuel drones

Oil made from Cannabis seed is superior and healthier as a cooking oil by far than soybean oil. Hemp seed oil would be great for running diesel engines,but not gasoline engines. It might work as a jet engine fuel.

Gilad Atzmon - The Post Political Condition - What Next?

Despite the desperate attempts by Jewish ethnic activists to sabotage the Post Political Conference at Theatre 80, the intellectual gathering was a great success. I would like to use this opportunity to thank theatre owner Lorcan Otway for taking a firm position on freedom of speech and elementary rights. I would also want to express my gratitude to Joe Friendly who has been documenting NYC dissent for many years. Last but not least, my admiration to the supporters of freedom who joined us last Sunday.

TEL AVIV – In a radio interview last night, Jackie Mason, the famous standup comic who dubs himself “The Ultimate Jew,” declared that President Donald Trump is “even more Jewish than me.”

Jackie is still funny!

Mason quipped:

He’s even more Jewish than me. I thought I was an Orthodox Jew but he is much more Orthodox than me because every time he talks it’s all about how he could help Jews and protect Jews. And every child he has is looking for someone to marry that’s a Jew.

They go to shul [synagogue] even when there’s no reason for it. He creates Jewish holidays that don’t even exist. His son-in-law is not only Jewish but he’s Orthodox. And his daughter became even more Orthodox than the husband. So, he can’t even go with them to a restaurant because as soon as they sit down they complain that it is not Kosher enough.

“I think he forgot he’s a gentile altogether,” Mason said of Trump. “Pretty soon he’ll be wearing that yalmukah (kippah) every time he goes to the White House.”

When 'Sunshine' Ruled on the Korean Peninsula

Before South Korea’s conservative presidents severed ties with North Korea from 2008, their liberal predecessors Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun promoted peaceful engagement and rapprochement, an approach called the “sunshine policy.”

The name stemmed from an ancient Greek fable where the wind and the sun competed to remove a man’s cloak. No matter how strongly the wind blew, the man only wrapped his cloak more tightly to keep warm. But when the sun shone, the warmth made him take his cloak off. The wind symbolized unsuccessful coercive policies toward North Korea and the sun stood for an approach able to persuade North Korea to take off its anachronistic and uncomfortable cloak, changing at last.

10 Ways To Stop Being A Slave And Bring Down The Pyramids Of Control

There are signs that the mind-pyramids that technocrats have built to enforce their 21st-century global plantation slave system are crumbling as they press harder upon our cognitive ability to make sense of words and actions. The owners of the shoulders on which the structure of tyranny is supported are beginning to leave in droves. The pyramids are falling as slaves begin to recognize their unconscious effort, and consciously encourage others to find a different line of work.

Here are 10 ways that you can help collapse all of the pyramids of control.

The United States government has become "the world's most dangerous terrorist organization," warns former Reagan official

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, who served just over a year as Reagan's Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy, said on the Shadow of Truth radio program that Washington, D.C., is a major den of inequity.

"The United States [military policy] has destroyed seven countries," he says. "The populations there are subject to ongoing continual violence either from the U.S. or these Jihadists or from the Islamic State.

US Intelligence Officer: “Every Single Terrorist Attack In US Was A False Flag Attack”

The latest whistleblower is David Steele, a 20-year Marine Corps intelligence officer, and the second-highest-ranking civilian in the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence. He is a former CIA clandestine services case officer, and this is what he had to say:

“Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security services. In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum.”

How this FBI strategy is actually creating US-based terrorists

0:12
The FBI is responsible for more terrorism plots in the United States than any other organization. More than al Qaeda, more than al Shabaab, more than the Islamic State, more than all of them combined.

0:26
This isn't likely how you think about the FBI. You probably think of FBI agents gunning down bad guys like John Dillinger, or arresting corrupt politicians.

0:36
After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the FBI became less concerned with gangsters and crooked elected officials. The new target became terrorists, and the pursuit of terrorists has consumed the FBI.

0:47
Every year, the Bureau spends 3.3 billion dollars on domestic counterterrorism activities. Compare than to just 2.6 billion dollars combined for organized crime, financial fraud, public corruption and all other types of traditional criminal activity.

Secret Pentagon Report Reveals US "Created" ISIS As A "Tool" To Overthrow Syria's President Assad

From the first sudden, and quite dramatic, appearance of the fanatical Islamic group known as ISIS which was largely unheard of until a year ago, on the world's stage and which promptly replaced the worn out and tired al Qaeda as the world's terrorist bogeyman, we suggested that the "straight to beheading YouTube clip" purpose behind the Saudi Arabia-funded Islamic State was a simple one: use the Jihadists as the vehicle of choice to achieve a political goal: depose of Syria's president Assad, who for years has stood in the way of a critical Qatari natural gas pipeline, one which could dethrone Russia as Europe's dominant - and belligerent - source of energy, reaching an interim climax with the unsuccessful Mediterranean Sea military build up of 2013, which nearly resulted in quasi-world war.

The narrative and the plotline were so transparent, even Russia saw right through them. Recall from September of last year:

Alex Jones 'forgot what grade his kids were in during a custody trial deposition because he'd eaten a big bowl of CHILI for lunch,' court hears

Alex has always been 90% show biz,which is why he makes the bucks.I don't know how anyone could take his antics as anything but.

Claim about Jones' chili amnesia was made by his ex-wife's lawyers Wednesday
She wants custody of their three kids, aged 9-14, whom he's had since 2015
They also played videos of him stripping down to his shorts on his Infowars show
His lawyers said the video was 'satire' and not representative of his parenting
Jones was also accused of taking off his clothes in therapy sessions

He also accused Jones of being diagnosed with narcissism and paranoia - and played a video clip of Jones disrobing down to his shorts while on camera as 'proof'.

In the clip Jones said he wanted to show the effects of a 'vitality-increasing' formula sold on the Infowars website, as well as to reference FBI 'snooping' on private communications.

There Will Be Blood: Left Prepares For War After Berkeley Beat Down: “Combat Training, Better Equipment, Guns…”

Can you say Martial Law? Certain people would love to see blood on the streets.

Last week Trump supporters and leftist social justice warriors met on the political field of battle in Berkeley, California. Words were exchanged, as were punches. And while an alt-right leader was punched in the face, by all accounts even the social justice warriors admit that they got a major beat-down.

This prompted a reddit discussion among the left’s tolerant resistance movement, with many asking how they can more effectively go to war against anyone who disagrees with their social, political, and economic views.

In short, as predicted, they are turning to militancy and mob action by mobilizing individuals and groups to attend combat training seminars, acquiring better equipment like baseball bats and helmets, and of course, if things really go bad… guns.

Infowars’ Alex Jones in Court: Antics Are All an Act as ‘Performance Artist’

Looks like AJ is being screwed.

A child custody lawsuit pits “America’s biggest conspiracy theorist” Alex Jones against ex-wife Kelly Jones, who is seeking payments from the Infowars founder for child support. Kelly claims her husband is “not a stable person,” but the man US President Donald Trump once praised as having an “amazing” reputation is simply “playing a character.”

That’s according to his attorney, who says the antics come with the territory for the “performance artist,” the Austin American-Statesman reported.

How to bring down the elephant in the room

The reason why I decided to tackle this issue today is that the forces who broke Trump in less than a month are also the very same forces who have forced him into a political 180: the Neocons and the US deep state. However, I think that these two concepts can be fused into on I would call the “Ziocons”: basically Zionists plus some rabid Anglo imperialists à la Cheney or McCain. These are the folks who control the US corporate media, Hollywood, Congress, most of academia, etc. These are the folks who organized a ferocious assault on the “nationalist” or “patriotic” wing of Trump supporters and ousted Flynn and Bannon and these are the folks who basically staged a color revolution against Trump. There is some pretty good evidence that the person in charge of this quiet coup is Jared Kushner, a rabid Zionist. Maybe. Maybe not.

OLD WEST LEGENDS Charles Goodnight - Blazing the Cattle Trails

Co-founder of the Goodnight-Loving Trail, Charles Goodnight was born in Mocoupin County, Illinois on March 5, 1836. Charles moved with his family to Waco, Texas in 1846 when he was ten years old. By the time he was twenty he was working as a cowboy and served with the local militia in the many fights against Comanche raiders. In 1857, he joined the Texas Rangers, where he continued to fight in the Indian Wars and served as an Indian scout. Later, when the Civil War began, he again served as a scout.

After the war, Goodnight joined up with Oliver Loving to move cattle from Fort Belknap, Texas to Fort Sumner, New Mexico, in what became known as the Goodnight-Loving Trail.

6 Legendary Mountain Men of the American Frontier

Before the mass migrations of the mid-19th century, some of the only non-natives to venture into the vastness of the American West were small bands of fur trappers, traders and explorers known as “mountain men.” These grizzled, self-sufficient woodsmen helped blaze many of the overland trails later used by the pioneers, and stories of their larger-than-life exploits often became the stuff of legend back East. Find out more about the lives of six adventurers who made their mark on the American frontier.

American Heroes: Francis Marion, South Carolina’s “Swamp Fox”

“Come on Boys! Let us go back … as for this damned old fox, the Devil himself could not catch him.
British Lt. Colonel Banastre Tarleton’s comments after pursuing Colonel Francis Marion

Marion first learned his “Indian style” of warfare while fighting the Cherokees in the Southern theater of the French and Indian War (1756-1763). With American Independence in 1776, Marion was commissioned a major in the South Carolina militia. He helped to repulse the British bombardment of Charleston in 1776, commanding a battery of cannon that crippled the British fleet and sent it running off the next morning “like earless dogs.”

Francis Mario and Tarleton were the real-life inspirations for the main characters in Mel Gibson's "The Patriot."

To prevent the imminent attack, General Ripper decides to go rogue and execute a nuclear strike against Russia without the knowledge of the President. It seems that all is lost as the strike cannot be called off and Ripper has locked the base down making it nearly impossible to penetrate.

Piece of Cake: New Normal of Trump's Foreign Policy

Trump ain't no Gump. Forrest had a heart and commonsense.

Here's the Commander-in-chief of the Beautiful Piece of Chocolate Cake School of Foreign Policy, expanding on his next move regarding North Korea.

"We are sending an armada. Very powerful. We have submarines. Very powerful. Far more powerful than the aircraft carrier. That I can tell you."

As if bombing nuclear-armed North Korea would be as much of a piece of cake as Tomahawking a semi-deserted air base in Syria. But then, that's the beauty of a box of chocolates foreign policy; you never know what you're gonna get.

Xi advises Trump to be Peaceful

This guy sounds like a Statesman and he is to the point.

Chinese President Xi Jinping spoke on the phone with U.S. President Donald Trump Wednesday and emphasized that conflict on the Korean Peninsula has to be resolved through peaceful means, after Trump reiterated that he was ready to solve the North Korean nuclear issue on his own.

China's state-run broadcaster CCTV reported that Xi and Trump held a phone conversation Wednesday morning Asia time to discuss the situation on the Korean Peninsula and other matters of bilateral concern, five days after their summit last week. The CCTV report was issued shortly after the conversation.

Xi was reported to have told Trump, China adheres to the goal of the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and calls for peaceful means to resolve the problem in order to safeguard the peace and stability of the region.

Musings By America’s Graveside

Brother Nathanael seems a little testy these days. But who isn't!

By Brother Nathanael
* Haley is an imbecile.
* Trump cannot be trusted, his word is full of worms.
* Trump is a tinderbox, a dangerous demagogue.
* There is not an ounce of integrity running through Trump’s veins.
* Jared Kushner has his day in the sun with Trump. But every dog has his day and pisses on the hydrant. America is that hydrant.
* Bannon wrote many of Trump’s campaign ‘anti-NWO’ speeches. Trump never believed a word of it.
* Tillerson is a weakling. He caved to big business to allow homos to wreck the last remaining wholesome institution in America, the Boy Scouts of America.
* Mattis and McMasters are both war criminals yet run the Jew-enabled war machine wreaking havoc all over the world.
* Mattis has the eyes of a zombie. He’s a metaphor of the hollowing out of Jewmerica, a country with one foot and three toes in the grave.
* Jewmerica is the most hated country across the board.

The Pearl Harbor Salvage Effort: Keeping Navy Fighting

“The scene to the newcomer was foreboding indeed. There was a general feeling of depression throughout the Pearl Harbor area when it was seen and firmly believed that none of the ships sunk would ever fight again.” This was a haunting sentiment from Captain Homer Wallin, the man who would lead the salvage effort.

The salvage effort began on December 7 when crews manned hoses to fight the fires while the attack was still under way. These firefighters were aided by boats, tugs, and even a garbage hauler. Men from the fleet’s base force brought pumps to battle the flooding. Rescue teams searched for sailors trapped in the capsized battleships Oklahoma and Utah.
The Old Battleships were refloated repaired and modernized and supported landings in Europe and the Pacific.The got their revenge at Surigao Strait, Battle of Leyte Gulf,the biggest Naval action in history.

20 awesome projects for Raspberry Pi

The DIY dream

Raspberry Pi — a tiny, stripped-down $35 computer — hit the market in 2011 with the intention of helping promote basic computer science skills in schools. It has become the DIY gadget-maker's go-to device. Tinkerers, hobbyists, educators and students — basically anyone who likes to build things — have taken to the Internet with project after project utilizing the Raspberry Pi.

In early 2015, a second generation, the Raspberry Pi 2, was introduced. And now it celebrates another milestone: 10 million units sold. To mark the occasion, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has launched a "Pi-in-a-Box" starter kit to get even more of us to learn about and use the low-cost computer. It'll go on sale in the U.K. for £99 and hit other markets soon.

10 surprisingly practical Raspberry Pi projects anybody can do

Most of the Raspberry Pi coverage you’ll see around the web focuses on the more fantastical projects—magic mirrors, portable gaming handhelds, intelligent drones, and so forth. And for good reason! Those maker masterpieces show what sort of power the $35 mini-PC is capable of in the hands of someone with a little imagination and a bin full of spare electronics.

But most people won’t use the Raspberry Pi to whip together crazy creations.

In honor of Pi Day and the recent releases of the supercharged Raspberry Pi 3 and dirt-cheap Raspberry Pi Zero, we’re digging into the more practical projects possible with the Raspberry Pi, from media streaming to extending the range of your Wi-Fi network. It’s time to put that $35 computer to real work.

Daesh, Creature of the West

According to Saudi intelligence, Daesh was invented by the US government – in Camp Bacca, near the Kuwait border, as many will remember — to essentially finish off the Shiite-majority Nouri al-Maliki government in Baghdad.

It didn’t happen this way, of course. Then, years later, in the summer of 2014, Daesh routed the Iraqi Army on its way to conquer Mosul. The Iraqi Army fled. Daesh operatives then annexed ultra-modern weapons that took US instructors from six to twelve months to train the Iraqis in and…surprise! Daesh incorporated the weapons in their arsenals in 24 hours.

In the end, Shea frankly admitted to the source that Gen David Petraeus, conductor of the much-lauded 2007 surge, had trained these Sunnis now part of Daesh in Anbar province in Iraq.

US Will Keep Ground Troops in Libya

In a press briefing at the Pentagon today, African Command leader Gen. Thomas Waldhauser announced that the US intends to keep ground troops in Libya for the foreseeable future to support “friendly forces,” and to “degrade” the ISIS forces that remain in the country.

Waldhauser did not specify how many US troops are in Libya now, or how many will stay, but did estimate that there were less than 200 ISIS fighters left in Libya. The US had announced the end of the anti-ISIS campaign in Libya back in December, but never fully withdrew from the country.

The US forces were in Libya trying to help the “unity” government defeat ISIS in the city of Sirte. US officials repeatedly claimed the city was totally surrounded, and that no ISIS fighters would get away, though when the fighting finally ended, a substantial number of ISIS fighters did in fact get away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this is "military-speak" for the reality that the US government is never leaving Libya because of the oil and the oil pipelines.

Trump’s Quiet Outreach to Russia

By Gilbert Doctorow

Many backers of Donald Trump’s planned foreign policy, which sought détente with Russia, are wringing their hands and shaking their heads over what looks like the policy’s defeat in the face of media and Democratic Party attacks, abetted by maverick Republican senators, in which “Russian contacts” and “Russian meddling” are the code words.

But there may be another way to see the situation. There are indications that Trump may be continuing to advance a more collaborative approach toward Russia through the quiet expansion of military-to-military cooperation, such as the recent meeting in Turkey to coordinate strikes against the Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria.

Music and Politics: How Much Will It Matter Again?

Back when I was in college, rock and roll historian Barry Drake came and gave a lecture titled “60’s Rock”, When the Music Mattered”. It was a fabulous presentation about a fantastically eventful decade. He dissertated that it wasn’t fair to say that the music of the 60’s was necessarily better than that of any other decade in rock history. It was just that the music mattered more to people during that period. And who could argue with such a thesis? At least here in the United States, these were years of great unrest on a societal and political level. Whether it was the civil rights movement, the assassination of our greatest leaders, or the Vietnam War and its protests, these events were accompanied by and often directly interwoven with the music of the time. And heck, the decade gave us ?the Beatles and Motown, and birthed the sounds we currently consider “classic rock”, as well as other innovations. Enough said, right?

High Art: Historic Aerial Shots of Pre-state Israel Revealed

It was 1937 and publisher Zalman Schocken was looking for an original gift for his friends. The result: 40 spectacular photographs capturing the cities and landscapes from the skies. Deep within the National Library archive, an unmarked cardboard box wrapped in fine linen contains 40 high-quality aerial photographs of pre-state Israel. A yellowing piece of paper sits atop the photos, with a brief inscription in Hebrew and German revealing the story behind their creation. The project was the result of a unique collaboration between a successful publisher and one of pre-state Israel’s greatest photographers. It was to produce the first-ever set of aerial photographs of pre-state Israel to be taken for nonmilitary purposes. [Note they refer to it as "Pre-State Israel," but actually the very nice cities in the photos were Palestine.]

RENO, Nev. One of the world's largest marijuana festivals, which is expected to be held this week on tribal land outside of Las Vegas, has been facing a possible shutdown for the past two weeks, according to a letter sent by federal officials earlier this month.

U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden, based in Las Vegas, sent a Feb. 16 letter to the Moapa Paiute Tribe reminding the tribe that the transport, possession, use and distribution of marijuana is illegal under federal law. The marijuana trade show and festival, planned for March 4 and 5, would be in violation of that law, according to the letter obtained by the Reno Gazette-Journal.

Russian Billionaire Takes 74% Loss on $85 Million Gauguin

Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev paid 54 million euros (then $85 million) for a landscape by Paul Gauguin in a private transaction in June 2008. On Tuesday, he took a 74 percent loss on his investment.

Gauguin’s 1892 landscape “Te Fare (La Maison)" fetched 20.3 million pounds ($25 million), including commission, at Tuesday evening’s sale of Impressionist and modern art at Christie’s in London. Rybolovlev will net about $22 million based on the hammer price. The auction house had estimated the value at $15 million to $22.4 million. The buyer was a client of Rebecca Wei, president of Christie’s Asia.

AL-QAEDA GETS AN OSCAR

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the U.S. marketing and lobby organization of the movie makers, hands out some yearly rewards arranged to promote specific movies or persons in the movie business. The academy award ceremony is a rather boring event but it gets a lot of hype and media attention (and thereby generates lots of advertisement revenue).

To further increase its value this years event plagiarized the idea of the Miss Universe promoters. One of the hosts announced the wrong winning movie for some category and then reversed himself to announce a different "real" winner. It was a "mistake" just as surely as Hollywood's latest movie was a description of real life.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This reminds me of the Oscars presentation when one of the most brilliantly created anti-war films of all times, "Avatar" was ignored, and the film "The Hurt Locker", pro-military, pro-deep American State narrative, won the Oscar.

Apparently, the Oscar for "alleged best picture/documentary" is just about as worthless as was President "Bathed in Blood Barak" Obama's Nobel Peace Prize; full of sound and fury, and signifying ...nothing.

SYRIAN WAR PROPAGANDA AT THE OSCARS

The Western-backed war in Syria, like the invasion of Iraq, was so smothered by propaganda that truth was not only the first casualty but has been steadily suffocated for five years, now reaching the Oscars, says Rick Sterling.

The Netflix movie “The White Helmets” may win an Oscar in the “short documentary” category at the Academy Awards on Sunday. It would not be a surprise despite the fact that the group is a fraud and the movie is a contrived infomercial.

The “White Helmets” symbol, expropriating the name of “Syria Civil Defense.”

Awarding “The White Helmets” an Oscar would fit with the desire of Hollywood to appear supportive of “human rights,” even if that means supporting a propaganda operation to justify another bloody “regime change” war in the Middle East.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This so reminds me of the year when John Cameron's masterpiece "Avatar", one of the most brilliant anti-war movies ever made, was snubbed in favor of "The Hurt Locker", lionizing war.

Should this film win the Oscar for (alleged) best documentary, it will again underscore just how irrelevant the Oscars have become, and demonstrate the corrosive influence of the "deep state" in presenting propaganda as truth to the American people, and beyond.

Medical Cannabis — A Vastly Underutilized Therapeutic Option?

By Dr. Mercola

Cannabis is a vastly underutilized therapeutic option that has been wrongly vilified by U.S. regulatory agencies. In this interview, Dr. Margaret Gedde, a Stanford-trained pathologist and award-winning researcher, discusses the therapeutic value of this plant.

While initially focused on the conventional medical model, Gedde eventually transitioned over to holistic, drug-free health care in 2004. At present, she runs an alternative medical practice in Colorado, the home of medical marijuana, as it was one of the first states to widely legalize and apply it.

Gedde specializes in the use of cannabis, especially for the use of pain, thereby allowing her patients to get off dangerous drugs like opiates, which have created a public health emergency of massive proportions.

Time for a US Citizens Class Action Suit against these AG's and NGO's who are aiding and abetting illegal aliens. Jeff Sessions needs to convene Grand Juries and Indict these folks also. A little American pressure from above and pressure from below

Private persons and entities may initiate civil suits to obtain injunctions and treble damages against enterprises that conspire to or actually violate federal alien smuggling, harboring, or document fraud statutes, under the Racketeer-Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO). The pattern of racketeering activity is defined as commission of two or more of the listed crimes.

Why is Modern Art so Bad?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a great analysis of the decline in art, but misses a key factor. Photography. In between creating their masterworks, artists earned their living selling portraits and landscapes. The more accurate and representational they were, the higher the price that could be asked for.

Photography changed that, as it was much cheaper to take a photograph than to hire an artist to paint a picture of your new factory!

So art had to develop a new paradigm, images that photography could not duplicate. For artists who did not want to learn how to use photography artistically (and indeed most artists looked down on the new technology), the result was impressionism. But Robert Florczak is correct on one major point, and that is the transition from art that successfully communicated to art as a statement of the artists' conceit.

Any artist (or photographer or computer graphics person) can create a piece of art. A good artist creates an work that reminds him or her how they felt when they created it. A great Artist creates a work that forces the viewer to feel how the artist felt when it was created. But that latter part is what was lost in modern times, as artists created artwork to suit themselves and took the attitude that if the viewer of the art didn't get it, it was the viewer's ignorance rather than the artist's fault.

Once again modern technology is encroaching on the field of art and much of early impressionistic technique can now be done by computers, such as the following I just now whipped up as an illustration.



This has resulted in modern art looking to once again find forms and techniques unique to humans, such as the above mentioned Madonna decorated with cow dung.

I agree with Florczak that it is a loss. I am of the opinion art should above all be communication that inspires, and enlightens. Modern Art, failing to achieve those objectives, is making itself irrelevant. Worse, it has descended into a racket!

Yemeni forces launch new missile against Saudi Arabia: Video

These guys make their own rockets.It is not the first time the Saudi's have been hit with a Yemeni Army Borkan Missile.

Yemeni army forces have launched a locally designed and manufactured ballistic missile towards an area deep inside Saudi Arabia in response to Riyadh’s atrocious aerial bombardments against the crisis-stricken Arab country.

On Friday, the media bureau of the operations command in Yemen released footage showing the missile attack against a stationary target in the Saudi city of Ta'if, located more than 700 kilometers (434 miles) southeast of the capital, Riyadh.

The video shows the Borkan-1 (Volcano-1) blasting off from a launcher deployed in an unknown location in Yemen. The voice of a man can be clearly heard as he chants slogans against the United States and Israel.

The solid propellant and Scud-type Borkan-1 missile reportedly has a range of more than 800 kilometers (497 miles).

How the US Helped Create Al Qaeda and ISIS

Much like Al Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS) is made-in-the-USA, an instrument of terror designed to divide and conquer the oil-rich Middle East and to counter Iran’s growing influence in the region.

The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history.
