15-minute video: inspired citizen shows US war lies for Iraq I, Vietnam, Syria; solution of Truth + humanity siding with each other

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Gavin Nascimento’s sharp 15 minutes:

Documentation of US ongoing illegal Wars of Aggression started on lies

The following is a reprint of perhaps my best work to explain, document, and prove why all US military attacks since WW2 are the Orwellian opposite of lawful. Here is one to document the lies known to be lies as they were told to Americans, our military, and the world to sell these illegal wars.

“No treaty, however much it may be to the advantage of all, however tightly it may be worded, can provide absolute security against the risks of deception and evasion.” ~ President Kennedy, June 10, 1963

I was inspired to write this essay by the following comment from an otherwise intelligent person:

Call of Duty: Israel’s New Tourist Attraction Allows Guests to ‘Shoot Palestinian Terrorists’

The latest tourist attraction created by Israelis has taken guests by storm. Those visiting Israel are now able to enter an illegal settlement in the West Bank, where they’re offered the ultimate Israeli experience pretending to be a soldier shooting “terrorist” Palestinians in a new simulator.

In the illegal Israeli settlement of Gush Etzion, located between southern Jerusalem and Bethlehem, lies Caliber 3, a “counter-terrorism” academy that created a new concept in an attempt to allow the average tourist to experience how it feels to be an Israeli soldier.

Visitors partake in various activities, such as shooting “targets” with real bullets, and a simulation of a suicide bombing, as well as a stabbing. The programme is available for adults and children, and even carries a three-month-long summer camp for teenage boys to give them the ultimate IDF experience.

They are also taught krav maga, a form of fighting created by Israeli security forces.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How utterly sick is this?!?

But then, what can one expect from a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons?!?

The Rape of Russia Explained by Anne Williamson

When the Soviet Union cracked up, American journalist Anne Williamson was a popular freelancer on all things Russian for the Wall Street Journal and other prestigious outlets. A major New York publisher signed her to a contract for a book on Russia in 1993. But when she finally delivered a manuscript in 1997 predicting that the Russian bond market would crash in 1998 (which it did), nobody in the publishing world would touch it. Williamson believes that her criticism of the Clinton Administration and, especially, of George Soros made it radioactive. According to a 2001 essay in the New York Review of Books, Williamson’s unpublished book was “widely read in manuscript.”

Trump’s Yemen Policy Is Immoral and Counterproductive

Slaughter of the Houthis, indiscriminate bombing, famine, cholera — as recompense to the Saudis for the Iran deal? In his final year in office, President Obama’s foreign policy featured the bombing of seven Islamic countries by the U.S. military. Despite fears (and hopes) that President Trump would withdraw America from the world stage and institute a fortress-America foreign policy, the new guard has put Obama’s foreign policy on autopilot. The most significant adjustment Trump made was to give more discretion to his generals. The rate of bombing has increased in all seven nations.

Nowhere is this policy more craven and disastrous than in Yemen, where the U.S. has backed Saudi Arabia’s crusade to re-install Sunni general Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi in power.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian witness to this US-enabled carnage and genocide, I am profoundly unhappy at being a citizen of a country which is absolutely, and unquestionably, colluding with the Saudi Government and Military in war crimes in Yemen.

If both Mike and I were much younger, and had anything approximating some tangible assets, we would migrate to somewhere relatively civilized, where collusion in war crimes just wasn't something the government of that country did; unfortunately, we are too old - and broke - to be able to accomplish that at this point in our lives.

The Saudis are assassinating and maiming Yemeni infants and children with wild abandon.

Images: children killed and maimed for life from Saudi bombings

Because the Saudis, enabled by the US military, have blockaded Yemen's ports, so no food can get in, Yemeni children are dying by the scores from complications of malnutrition.

Images: Yemeni children dying from malnutrition, due to Saudi blockades of Yemeni ports

Oh, and did I mention that the Saudi military is using depleted uranium munitions in Yemen?!?

Images: Saudi military using depleted uranium weapons in Yemen

This, of course, is creating precisely the same kind of cancers, stillbirths, and massive birth defects, as it did in Fallujah, Iraq.

Image: severe birth defects in Yemeni infant, because of Saudi Arabia using depleted uranium weapons in Yemen. Image courtesy of Ruptly

And now, as one might imagine would take place, cholera has firmly taken hold in Yemen, with over 300,000 cases, and the disease spreading almost exponentially through the population.

Images: Yemenis suffering one of the worst cholera outbreaks in history

We cannot know the degree to which the Saudis may have weaponised this disease; but it is pretty easy to introduce it into water resources where local people gather water, and then will get deathly ill from contamination.

And Trump's new BFF is Saudi Prince Salman?!? A man who kills and maims Yemeni children with indiscriminate attacks?!? A man who orders Yemeni ports blocked, so the children of Yemen are dying of malnutrition?!?

Mr. President, I understand the the arms sales to Saudi Arabia are good for the American military complex; but sir, this move was at a steep cost to your and this country's soul and integrity, when you know, with an absolute certainty, that these munitions will be used to assassinate more Yemeni infants, children, women, and the medically fragile elderly?!?

Oh, yes; he did give a 66 million dollar donation to the UN to fight the cholera epidemic, to "appear to have done something the slightest bit humanitarian" in a country where his military are slaughtering Yemeni people by the hundreds as I type this:

Saudi Prince Salman donates 66 million dollars to the UN to fight the cholera epidemic

But the Prince is cynically aware that the UN, and its agencies, move more slowly than do frozen molasses in January; by the time UN aid actually gets to Yemen (if it can get there at all) it will be far too little, and far too late to curtail the outbreak.

If he had really wanted aid to get there more quickly, he would have approached either Doctors without Borders, or the International Committee of the Red Crescent (the Middle East's equivalent the American Red Cross), and guaranteed them safe passage into Yemen.

And President Trump, a final work here; your hated and loathing of Iran is completely misplaced, and has no basis in reality. Iran does not pose a threat to the United States; they just want to continue living their lives, unimpeded by the dictates of other countries.

For Rex Tillerson to make public statements to the effect that the goal of the US foreign policy in Iran is to create "regime change" in Tehran, is utterly morally irresponsible.

Iran has, and continues, to live up to its responsibilities as a signator to the P5+1 treaty.

And Mr. President, if you have not seen the following documentary, this has to be on your "must see" list, and soon, please:

Don't Tell Mother I'm In Iran

Trump Hints at Abandoning Key Qatar Military Base in Talks With Saudi King

The latest in a series of moves by President Trump that appeared to throw a wrench into State Department efforts to calm the Qatar blockade situation saw him telling the Saudi King today that the US could well just abandon their largest military base in the Middle East, the al-Udeid Airbase in Qatar.

This is a hugely important base for the US, and that’s a big part of why State Department officials have been so desperate to try to resolve the dispute. President Trump, however, has treated this base with relative ambivalence, and in his talk with King Salman today said he was confident other countries in the region would “gladly” build the US a replacement base if they abandoned Qatar.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, please: a word here; countries with which the US has carefully cultivated relationships are not, please, to be thrown around lightly, like some assets with absolutely no meaning or value; we are talking about thinking before making a move, which apparently, did not happen, prior to your conversation with Prince Salman yesterday.

And if the US government suddenly morphs from friend to frenemy to enemy with Qatar, how is this potentially going to influence other critical relationships in the Middle East we are working on developing, in terms of the US government having, proverbially, thrown Qatar under a bus?!?

Ukraine In NATO? America Should Reject A Bad Idea That Only Grows Worse With Age

The government of Ukraine reaffirmed its desire to join NATO. The alliance said the door is open for Kiev. It’s an idea that only grows worse with age.

It’s easy to understand why a majority of Ukrainians want NATO’s protection. They really want America’s protection. And who wouldn’t like the global superpower to take over one’s defense? Their country established its first contact with the alliance in 1991 when Ukraine joined the North Atlantic Cooperation Council. Since then Kiev has received aid and support while contributing troops to some allied operations.

And given the fact that the U.S. would do most of the heavy lifting in any conflict with nuclear-armed Russia, the critical question for Washington is whether adding a new member would increase Americans’ security.

Trump Wants Authority to Build New Bases in Iraq, Syria

The White House has issued a statement this week calling on Congress to grant President Trump unilateral legal authority to open new military bases in both Iraq and Syria, as well as to renovate existing facilities. Officials say the bases would be purely temporary in nature.

What “temporary” actually means however is unclear, particularly in Iraq where the Pentagon has been very public about the idea that they intend to keep US ground troops in Iraq more or less forever. Those bases, then, are going to be open-ended facilities for an open-ended mission.

The White House says that the current lack of unilateral authority is limiting “maneuverability” as they continue their military buildup in the region, Though the statement was initially aimed at getting the authority included in the NDAA, it does not appear that the House version made any such revisions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: even though Iraq and Syria are allegedly "sovereign nations", that's not going to stop the US government from permanently garrisoning these places in these countries, in preparation for more perpetual war.

SPOOKED: CO-FOUNDER OF TRUMP-RUSSIA DOSSIER FIRM CANCELS TESTIMONY WHILE LYNCH CLAIMS IGNORANCE

The ongoing efforts to bring down Donald Trump are unraveling at an accelerating pace...

Glenn Simpson, Fusion GPS Co-Founder
After it was revealed that Rob Goldstone - the man who arranged the now infamous Trump Jr. "setup" with a shady Russian attorney, is associated with Fusion GPS - the firm behind the largely discredited 35 page Trump-Russia dossier, the co-founder of Fusion GPS abruptly canceled his appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee next week to testify in the ongoing probe into Russian influence in the 2016 election, according to Politico.

The committee announced Wednesday that Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS was scheduled to voluntarily appear on July 19.

HUMAN GUINEA PIGS: CONGRESS SLAMS DOOR ON PENTAGON BIOCHEMICAL WEAPONS TESTING DECLASSIFICATION

In the 1960's and 1970's the US government tested chemical and biological weapons on US troops in still little known secret programs called Projects 112 and SHAD (Shipboard Hazard and Defense). The Vietnam era tests involved some 6,000 military personnel being subject to experiments involving deadly nerve agents like sarin and VX, as well as biological agents like E. Coli, all of which can result in quick death or potential lifelong debilitating health issues such as long-term central nervous system failure. A fatal dose of VX nerve agent, for example, can kill in minutes, but it is unknown if the program resulted in deaths because documents remain classified as "Top Secret" even 50 years later.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF know someone who is thinking about joining the US military (other than at officer level), please show them this article, to document how completely expendable the US military members are to their superiors, when they have been experimented upon, and have no recourse to the right treatment, because what was done to them was classified.

On this, Josef Mengele would have been proud!!

PEOPLE NOT AMUSED BY EU EFFORTS TO “DE-CASH” THEIR LIVES

In January 2017 the European Commission announced it was exploring the option of imposing upper limits on cash payments, with a view to implementing cross-regional measures as soon as 2018. To give the proposal a veneer of respectability and accountability the Commission launched a public consultation on the issue. Now, the answers are in, but they are not what the Commission was expecting.

A staggering 95% of the respondents said they were opposed to a cash ceiling at EU level. Even more emphatic was the answer to the following question:

“How would the introduction of restrictions on payments in cash at EU level benefit you, or your business or your organisation (multiple replies are possible)?”

In the curious absence of an explicit “not at all” option, 99.18% chose to respond with “no answer.” In other words, less than 1% of the more than 30,000 people consulted could think of a single benefit of the EU unleashing cross-regional cash limits.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In spite of this overwhelmingly negative response, I would be willing to bet that the EU will go ahead with cash limits anyway, as people find creative ways of getting around them.

LOCALS FURIOUS AT PLAN TO DUMP RADIOACTIVE WATER FROM FUKUSHIMA INTO PACIFIC OCEAN

In the latest sign that the area surrounding the destroyed Fukushima power plant is far from ready for the return of human inhabitants, locals and fishing groups are criticizing a plan to release water containing radioactive tritium from the ruined Fukushima power plant into the ocean, according to the Telegraph. Officials of Tokyo Electric Power Co., the operator of the plant, say tritium poses little risk to human health and is quickly diluted by the ocean. But for some, the plan undoubtedly dredges up uncomfortable memories from 2013, when it was revealed that 300 tonnes of radioactive material had been leaking into the Pacific Ocean from the devastated plant every day. It was also revealed that TEPCO had known about the leaks, but had tried to cover them up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The people running TEPCO at the time of this disaster should be tried by a jury of their peers, and wind up doing hard time in jail, plus provide massive compensation to the people who have become ill from exposure this radiation.

But this dumping of radioactive tritium water may well cause an ELE (an extinction level event), which may poison fishing shoals around the world forever.

SHOCK: Australia declares Fluoride “completely safe”

While Americans are finally taking a stand again fluoride, Australia has just taken a step back by declaring that fluoride in drinking water does not cause cancer or lowers a person’s IQ. They noted it is “completely safe” and not associated with any negative health effect.

After analyzing 60 years’ worth of research and 3,000 studies, Australia’s National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) revealed that fluoride in drinking water does not cause cancer or lower a person’s IQ, under the levels used in Australia.

“It shows that community water fluoridation as it’s used in Australia today is effective at reducing tooth decay and is not associated with any general negative health effects,” said NHMRC CEO Anne Kelso.

CIA Director Pompeo Admits Convincing Trump Over Disproven Chem Weapons Attack In Syria

By Brandon Turbeville

Ever since the tragic and stupid launch of 59 Tomahawk missiles into Syria by the United States took place in April, the entire incident has been represented as a one-man show by the corporate and even by the alternative media. The corporate press, which virtually never gives Trump a break on any issue real or imagined, was strangely approving of The Donald after his war crime while his detractors in the alternative media were presenting the act as that of a madman who is frighteningly close to the red button...

Backing up my own suspicions is the current Director of the CIA, Mike Pompeo. In a recent speech to the INSA Leadership Dinner on July 11, Pompeo was giving a typical dinner speech about the harrowing world of the intelligence community, how tough it is to have his position, the importance of it, etc. During the course of the speech, however, Pompeo let a very interesting tidbit slip...

Saudi Arabia: What’s Really Behind Trump’s Hypocrisy?

It is curious then that President Trump’s first trip abroad was to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the sociocultural source code of the very extremism infecting both the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) as well as the wider, global extremism it inspires and fuels everywhere from Southeast Asia, western China and even in the streets of North America and Europe.

While the US postures to the world as engaged in a global war on terrorism, it is clear that those nations in the Middle East cooperating closest with Washington are in fact those also perpetuating this seemingly endless war. Why?

It turns out that perpetual war is a lucrative affair in both terms of acquiring wealth and power. It is this equation of wealth and power that takes precedence, even at the expense of narrative continuity and political legitimacy.

Dollars, Oil and Arms

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perpetual wars are great for business, if you are part of the military industrial complex, but very lousy for the troops risking their very lives to fight them.

Patriotism cannot just be killing on command; it has to be more than this, by getting the Federal government to become infinitely more accountable for their actions and decisions than they are now to We the People.

And we know precisely where a lot of these munitions are headed; they will be part of the US government-enabled Saudi genocide in Yemen.

When I was a kid in school, even in college, I never imagined that I would be a citizen of a country participating in war crimes, which is precisely what the Saudis are doing in Yemen.

Infants, children, women, and the medically fragile elderly are being slaughtered and maimed for life; the Saudi military have been using DU weapons, which are causing massive cancers, still births, and horrific physical and mental deformities in Yemen's children; with US help, all Yemeni ports are blockaded, so infants and children are dying of complications of malnutrition; and now, cholera has taken a firm hold in Yemen, with over 300,000 stricken with the disease.

I love my country; but as a Christian pacifist activist, I must peacefully, calmly,and logically protest, and witness to, these activities on the part of my government.

We urgently need a national discussion on this, and demand from our Congressional representatives why in the name of Heaven is Yemen considered any kind of a "threat" to the US and/or Saudi Arabia?!? There is an article on this from last year, indicating that the real reason Yemen became a threat to Saudi Arabia was that, with rebel Houthi leaders there, there might be a huge Shia "awakening", with some assistance from Shia Iran, which would have negative implications for the Sunni, Wahabbi Saudi state.

US Relocating ISIS Terrorists

In war theaters where ISIS operates, America supports the scourge it pretends to oppose, along with al-Nusra and other terrorist groups.

An often used tactic involves relocating ISIS fighters from one area to another – last year from Mosul to Syria, currently from Raqqa to elsewhere in the country.

According to Fars News,

“US-led forces have several times transferred the ISIL leaders from Iraq and Syria to other regions by heliborne operations.”

“Local sources reported on Wednesday that three military helicopters of the US-led coalition carried out another heliborne operation in Eastern Homs, carrying a number of ISIL terrorists on board.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised at these revelations?!?

The hypocrisy here is nothing short of amazing and completely appalling.

U.S. Bases Strategically Placed to Prevent Syrian Military From Advancing; Outlining Borders of Kurdistan

Despite the spits and spurts of World War Three, it seems the United States (at least part of the establishment) and Russia are beginning to move toward a cooling of their approaches to the Syrian crisis. While we have seen this many times in the past – the apparent mutual understanding of Russia and the U.S. – we have been consistently been rattled by an abrupt push by the United States toward a greater involvement in Syria and a push that could very well be the catalyst for a third world war.

While there obviously remains the possibility that the United States will once again lash out like a dying lunatic empire, risking the lives of everyone on earth, we might also ask whether or not the U.S. has had a change in strategy or even perhaps whether or not the American “Plan B” is coming to fruition.

U.S. Bases In Syria Set The Borders For A Federalized Country

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This balkanisation of Syria is an illegal and immoral act on the part of the American government, to make it more "pliable" to Western demands.

But there is a question of just how long Russia, which has been invited by the Syrian government to get rid of the jihadis, will put up with it. The question is: just how far they are willing to go to get these American encampments out of Syria?!? And that is where things could get... nasty very quickly.

Ukraine De Facto Turns Into a NATO Military Platform, Sharpened for Use Against Russia

These days the airport of Odessa turned into a natural NATO airfield that only just manages to receive and send military aircraft with staff and military equipment. The Odessa “patriotic” Dumskaya.Net publication, literally choking with delight at such proximity to NATO “saviors”, regularly publishes photo reports on these take-offs and landings, from which it is possible to have a certain notion of the plans of the alliance’s command. Thus, just in a week in Odessa the arrival of the following military plans of the alliance was recorded.

But, perhaps, the most interesting visitor was the latest American distant anti-submarine Poseidon R-8 plane, which in general arrived in Ukraine for the first time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This NATO upgrade of the former Soviet military airbase in Artsyz does not bode well for peace on this planet at all.

Reckless US Policy Toward North Korea

Decades of US hostility toward the DPRK created heightened tensions, threatening possible conflict on the Korean peninsula - an unthinkable prospect pitting two nuclear powers against each other if launched.

Pyongyang, China, Russia, and South Korea want issues resolved diplomatically. Washington needs enemies to justify its unjustifiable imperial agenda, North Korea a longstanding one - because of its sovereign independence, not for any threat it poses.

It never attacked another country throughout its entire post-WW II history. It threatens none now, except in retaliation if attacked, its right under international law.

China is displeased with Trump administration pressure to ally with its unacceptable strategy - economic and financial strangulation to bring the DPRK to its knees, a lunatic scheme Beijing rejects, an unworkable one if implemented.

The only way to resolve Korean peninsula issues is the diplomatic road Washington won’t take. That’s the key issue, no other.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US refuses to offer any starting stance for a negotiation, like a suggestion about creating a peace treaty to replace the existing armistice in exchange for North Korea's stopping its nuclear program. In fact, Rex Tillerson has very publicly stated that there will be no negotiation until the DPRK.

Rex Tillerson Rejects Talks With North Korea on Nuclear Program

North Korea cannot be brought to the table, if the US gives it nothing with which to actually negotiate, and this is precisely the situation in which the US government has placed itself, and that ... is really unfortunate.

Ignore the Haters. Russia Is Not Our Enemy.

Those hoping for an early end to the Trump administration received a gift this week as Donald Trump Jr. disclosed an exchange with a Russian lawyer. The Russian hacking story now promises to dominate headlines for the remainder of Trump's presidency, however long it lasts.

For the duration, talking heads will be telling us that Russia is an adversary and a hostile threat. But regardless of whether the president was involved, Russia hating, while great for the military-industrial complex, is inimical to world peace and broader American prosperity.

The intelligence and military leakers and Trump's political enemies believe friendly relations with Vladimir Putin's government are dangerous. But since Russia can annihilate our country, the greater danger is not engaging with Putin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are a number of areas in which the US and Russia should be collaborating, such as anti-terrorism work; science; and medical research.

But I cannot believe, for one second, that Russia is the US government's biggest problem. And utterly no proof has been presented that Russia attempted to turn the election in Trump's favor.

We have innumerable problems at home that need to be fixed; we have wars which show no sign of getting won, which should be wound down; our health care is in shambles; and a bankrupt Federal Government, combined with bankrupt states, like Illinois, which may well be just the start of that unwinding.

Jobs have been offshored/outsourced to the point that the middle class is fading; and the general quality of what passes for "education" is just absolutely deplorable.

And no, Russia is not the source of these woes; it is because of lousy decisions by Federal and state leadership, only interested in lining their own pockets, while their "alleged constituents" are forced to live with the consequences of these bad decisions...like the people in Flint, Michigan, who, years after the contamination was known to exist, still do not have clean drinking water!

Begala: We Should ‘Debate Whether We Should Blow Up’ Russia

Long-time Clinton family ally Paul Begala on Wednesday evening seemingly suggested President Trump should consider bombing Russia in response to the Kremlin’s meddling in the 2016 election. Speaking with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, the former adviser to Bill Clinton lamented how Trump supporters don’t seem particularly outraged about Russia’s meddling in American affairs. “We were and are under attack by a hostile foreign power,” he said, “and... we should be debating how many sanctions we should place on Russia or whether we should blow up the KGB, GSU, or GRU [Russia’s foreign intelligence agency].” He continued: “If I was Trump, I would be mad because it has tainted his victory.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Begala, forgive me, but I must ask; have you gone absolutely foaming at the mouth, mad-dog insane, to suggest such a thing?!?

And sir, did you not get the memo the the "Big Lie" went out with the whoopie cushion, and the dribble glass?!?

As to the evidence, the Democrats not only have not presented a shred of evidence that this happened, but they also will not allow top US investigators into their private servers; so what's up here?!?

USA Preventing Inspection of Chemicals Weapons in Syria, Says Russia

The United States by all means tries to prevent the sending of experts to investigate the use of chemical weapons in Syria, denounced today Mikhail Ulianov, director of the arms control department of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

What is logical is that Washington seeks collaboration of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to investigate what happened last April in Jen-Sheijun, Syria's Idlib province, considered Ulianov.

However, he said, the United States at all times prevented the sending of OPCW specialists to both Jen-Sheijun and the Al Shairat air base, attacked on April 7 with 59 US Tomahawk missiles.

Don’t Be Fooled, There Is No ‘Diplomacy’ With North Korea

China and South Korea both favor the diplomatic approach, and both have been pushing the Trump Administration to consider serious proposals for a broad deal. While there are several variations, at the core of the proposal involves North Korea totally freezing both their nuclear and missile programs, the U.S. halting wargames, and reducing the American military footprint on the Korean Peninsula.

It’s not a bad deal, and gives the U.S. what it wants. That South Korea is backing the deal is particularly significant, showing that they’re willing to give up the annual war exercise, and see some of the U.S. troops withdraw from their territory, in return for these concessions. The White House is not only sour on the specifics of the idea, but is rejecting such proposals out of hand, insisting they don’t want to make any deals that involve lifting any economic or military pressure on North Korea.

Lawmakers: Pentagon Can Keep Secret Chemical Weapons Tests on US Troops

Back in the 1960s and 1970s, the Pentagon conducted multiple secret tests of chemical and biological weapons, deliberately exposing some 6,000 US troops to nerve gases and various bacterial toxins, to “develop a response plan” in case US troops were ever attacked by chemical weapons. You know, attacked with chemical weapons by someone other than the Pentagon.

The first information about the tests emerged as early as 2000, and veterans groups have been demanding more information, insisting that many of the exposed veterans are suffering adverse effects from their exposure, and need to know more to seek better treatment. The problem is, the details are all classified.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you know of any kids thinking about enlisting for the military, please show them this article; to the Pentagon, its troops are simply disposable, once they have finished their missions, and may well rot in a chemically induced hell for the rest of their lives, when they have been the subjects of experiments like this.

And please don't tell me that, in some way or another, such "tests" are not performed currently.

US to Send Ground Troops to Kosovo to Join NATO Operation

The Pentagon has announced today that a unit of about 500 US ground troops, National Guardsmen, are to be deployed to the Kosovo region to join a NATO “peacekeeping” operation (KFOR) that has proven the longest in the alliance’s history.

The operation is the remnant of the 1999 NATO attack on Serbia, which ended with NATO announcing that Kosovo, which had been part of Serbia since the Middle Ages, would secede from Serbia. The ethnic Albanian population approved of this. The Serbian population in North Kosovo continues to oppose it.

18 years in, Kosovo still lacks recognition from a number of states, particularly Serbia, and the intense ethnic division between Albanians and Serbs remains as big a problem as ever. NATO’s effort has been to just keep throwing more troops at the situation, and hope that somewhere along the line the situation will resolve itself and victory can be claimed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wouldn't hold my breath here, wait for a "peaceful resolution" of the situation; the NATO troops are here to prevent the reigniting of a civil war , but that is just about all they can do.

Why CIA's 'Solid Evidence' Against Assad Evokes Memories of Powell's Test Tube

CIA Director Mike Pompeo's claim that US intelligence has "solid evidence" that Bashar al-Assad's forces conducted a chemical strike on Khan Shaykhun on April 4 resembles nothing but yet another "fake," Sergey Goncharov, head of the Alpha Anti-Terrorist Unit's International Association of Veterans, told Radio Sputnik.

While CIA Director Mike Pompeo insists the US "has solid evidence" that the Syrian Arab Army's used chemical weapons in Khan Shaykhun on April 4, these claims are completely detached from reality, Sergey Goncharov, head of the Alpha Anti-Terrorist Unit's International Association of Veterans, says.

U.S. DOUBLED FUEL SUPPORT FOR SAUDI BOMBING CAMPAIGN IN YEMEN AFTER DEADLY STRIKE ON FUNERAL

Last October, an airstrike in Yemen by the Saudi Arabia-led coalition hit a funeral, killing more than 130 people and drawing global condemnation. Yet in the months following that strike, the United States doubled the amount of fuel it provided to coalition jets, according to figures obtained from the U.S. military. The numbers underline the fact that U.S. support for the campaign has continued and even increased despite growing attention to civilian casualties and alleged war crimes by the coalition.

But the House of Representatives just passed over the chance to vote on legislation that would have tracked the fuel the Pentagon gives to the Saudi coalition and prohibited refueling of coalition aircraft unless the Pentagon could assure Congress that subsequent missions wouldn’t hit civilians or targets contained on no-strike lists.

Images: Yemeni children killed and maimed for life from Saudi bombings

This, folks, is what is being done in Yemen, with your tax dollars and in your name.

We urgently need to be having a national dialogue on how enabling this Saudi genocide in Yemen is "protecting" us, and our quality of life here in the US.
And the short answer is, it isn't; not one bit.

CNN, Clarissa Ward Work With Nusra Terrorist To Create Propaganda, Try To Cover Tracks After The Fact

By Brandon Turbeville

Fresh on the heels of resignations of several CNN reporters due to their exaggerations, breach of ethics, and outright lies regarding the Trump-Russia story as well as the fact that a CNN in producer was caught on camera saying that the Russia story was “Bullshit” and that the “news organization” was indeed engaged in a witch hunt against Donald Trump, the embattled propaganda organization is now facing scrutiny over its close relationship with terrorists and the manner in which it presented them to the general public.

The particular reporter in question this time is the infamous anti-Assad, pro-terrorist Clarissa Ward who built her career based upon her incessant lie-riddled propaganda regarding the “crimes against humanity” committed by Bashar al-Assad’s government and the “bravery” of the Western-backed terrorists...
