The Pearl Harbor Betrayal and James Forrestal’s Death

The following passage begins on page 167 and continues into page 168. The year is 1941 and the person sharing secrets with Trohan is President Roosevelt’s press secretary:

Steve [Early] confided to me that we knew every move the Japanese were making. This mental bell was to grow louder in tone in the months ahead. Steve repeated we knew every move as fast as it was made. Because of this knowledge, we had to return at once to Washington; war was imminent.

Pearl Harbor: A Successful War Lie

British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s fervent hope for years was that Japan would attack the United States. This would permit the United States (not legally, but politically) to fully enter the war in Europe, as its president wanted to do, as opposed to merely providing weaponry, as it had been doing. On April 28, 1941, Churchill wrote a secret directive to his war cabinet:

“It may be taken as almost certain that the entry of Japan into the war would be followed by the immediate entry of the United States on our side.”

On May 11, 1941, Robert Menzies, the prime minister of Australia, met with Roosevelt and found him “a little jealous” of Churchill’s place in the center of the war. While Roosevelt’s cabinet all wanted the United States to enter the war, Menzies found that Roosevelt,

Obama's Defense Nominee: Here Comes Trouble

Ashton Carter is the typical Beltway apparatchik – profiting from the revolving door between the military, heavy industry and academia.

He advised Goldman Sachs on military technology.

He was an actor in the dismantling of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, signed by Bill Clinton, which allowed a collection of Dr. Strangeloves to go rampant on computer simulated lab tests of nuclear weapons coupled with underground tests in the Nevada desert (plutonium blown up with explosives, for instance).

He was and remains a key actor in the ever evolving “policy” of demonization of Russia.

Way back in 1996, he was totally paranoid about both Iraq and Iran non-existent WMDs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have looked at this man's bio, which in "Washington-ese", is very impressive.

But what I do not see is any actual military experience indicating that he has ever, in his life, participated in real combat.

As someone with family which has served, and some which do currently serve in our military, the next time a Secretary of Defense is chosen, I want that person to have known real combat, from an in-the-trenches perspective.

I want them to know the cost of putting people's lives on the line, so this is not an abstraction to them.

And I want them to be keenly aware of choices and decisions this government can make which can get the geopolitical objectives won through peaceful means.

Marines to train in Los Angeles for urban combat

Dozens of Marines will be raiding buildings and shooting paintballs at each other in downtown Los Angeles to prepare troops for urban combat.

Capt. Brian Block said Thursday that the raids at several undisclosed locations in the city will be off limits to the public.

Block says the trainings are part of a two-week military exercise that starts Friday and involves about 2,400 Marines and Sailors from the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit.

He says the Los Angeles portion will take place over a couple of days next week. The other exercises will take place at military bases in California, at a site outside Las Vegas and at an undisclosed location in Arizona.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whenever I read about "urban combat training" done in cities in the US, I have to wonder if these troops are ultimately going to be used against US citizens in these cities.

Rep. Kinzinger Blasts Russia: ‘This Aggression Will Not Stand’

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R., Ill.) had a few harsh words for Russian president Vladimir Putin while speaking on the House floor Thursday.

“Russia’s continuing political, military, and economic aggression against Ukraine, as well as Georgia and Moldova, must be addressed,” Kinzinger said. “In short, this aggression will not stand.”

Kinzinger stressed the importance of the territorial integrity and sovereignty for the nations that have been pressured by Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well Adam, if you really feel that strongly about it, here's your rifle, and here's your parachute. We ran out of the camo uniforms, so here is a bright da-glo orange jumpsuit left over from the CIA's torture facilities. Watch your head climbing into that transpport plane and we will call Vladimir Putin and tell him you are on your way to kick his butt all by yourself.

But We The People remember the lies about stolen incubators that tricked us into the first invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember how only a year ago you tried to trick us into war with Syria with more lies about poison gas.

We The People remember how there weren't really torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin or a Spanish mine in Havane Harbor, but how there really WERE weapons on board the Lusitania.

In short, We The People remember all the lies, frauds, and deceptions used to trick us into wars of conquest, to send our young people out to die in wars created out of thin air by and for the money-junkies. I think it is time that we have a new rule in America; that those who want war are the first to the front lines. You are all splendidly brave with the lives of other peoples' children. Let's see the true measure of your courage and commitment to war.

You first!

Reckless Congress 'Declares War' on Russia

Today the US House passed what I consider to be one of the worst pieces of legislation ever. H. Res. 758 was billed as a resolution “strongly condemning the actions of the Russian Federation, under President Vladimir Putin, which has carried out a policy of aggression against neighboring countries aimed at political and economic domination.”

In fact, the bill was 16 pages of war propaganda that should have made even neocons blush, if they were capable of such a thing.

US Army Sends 100 Tanks To Eastern Europe To "Deter Russian Aggression"

The ink on Barack Obama's Chuck Hagel termination letter hasn't dried yet but already the US president's new, and seemingly far more hawkish advisors, are having their warmongering presence felt. Case in point: the Eastern European theater of (Cold) war, where Military.com reports that the new Army commander in Europe plans to bolster the U.S. armored presence in Poland and the Baltic states and keep rotations of U.S. troops there through next year and possibly beyond to counter Russia. Lt. Gen. Frederick "Ben" Hodges, who replaced Lt. Gen. Donald M. Campbell earlier this month as commander of U.S. Army Europe, said the Army was looking to add about 100 Abrams tanks and Bradley Fighting Vehicles to the forces in Eastern Europe.

If there was a way the United States could achieve its long-term strategic objectives and, at the same time, avoid a war with Russia, it would so. Unfortunately, that is not an option, which is why there’s going to be a clash between the two nuclear-armed adversaries sometime in the near future.

U.S. Air Force pilot killed in crash in Middle East: Central Command

A U.S. Air force pilot died on Sunday when an aircraft crashed while returning to its base in the Middle East, U.S. Central Command said in a statement on Monday, APA reports quoting Reuters.

The cause of incident involving a F-16 Fighting Falcon is under investigation and emergency responders were still at the scene, Central Command said.

A Central Command statement said the plane had taken off shortly before trying to return to its base in the Middle East. It said the crash did not occur in Iraq or Syria and was not combat related.

America Steps Up Investment In Global Cluster Bomb Trade

Global investments in the manufacture of cluster bombs and related munitions rose over the past year, despite the existence of an international convention against the use or production of these weapons. More than half of the institutions involved in those investments are based in the United States.

From 2011 to 2014, an estimated 151 financial institutions invested at least $27 billion in companies that produce weapons considered by rights groups to be prohibited by the Convention on Cluster Munitions, which entered into effect in 2010. This new estimate, from PAX, a Dutch watchdog group, constitutes a $3 billion increase from just last year.

While it is unclear what exactly is driving that increase, rights groups have reported on the recent use of cluster munitions in both eastern Ukraine and, particularly, Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These bombs are not being made in order to NOT use them.

And of course, cluster munitions do a spectacular job of killing infants and toddlers, who become curious about the packages, because they are colored just like food ration packages.

A-10 Warthog retirement debated after replacement’s role in ‘friendly fire’ deaths

The five fatalities occurred on June 9, when a B-1B strategic bomber — a planned replacement for the A-10 — dropped a 500-pound bomb squarely onto U.S. soldiers protecting a helicopter landing zone.

An investigation showed the flight crew lacked basic knowledge about the bomber’s sensors, which did not have the capability to detect friendly infrared strobes worn by soldiers that night. Not knowing the sensors’ limitations and not seeing any strobes, the crew unleashed the deadly bomb.

Because the B-1B is billed by Air Force top brass as one of the replacements for the war-tested and infantry-loved Warthog, those trying to save it increasingly are citing the tragedy.

The resignation (forced firing) of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is a bad sign folks; a very bad sign. It's not that Secretary Hagel was anything special of course; Globalist, DC Insider, member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) etc; but at least he wasn't a complete warmongering psychopath like Donald Rumsfeld or Dick Cheney.

You see, Schmuckie Hagel was more of a "soft power" Globalist, a fact which had earned him the open enmity of the Jewish neo-conservatives and the Israelis. It is clear now that a weakened "Ebola-ized", post-election Obongo has been usurped by the more aggressive faction of America's PRC (Predatory Ruling Class), operating within his own Party and administration.

U.S. Drone Strike Math – 41 Terrorists Targeted, 1,147 People Killed

A lot of Americans have an impression that drone strikes are less damaging to civilian populations that conventional airstrikes. This would be false. In fact, earlier this month I highlighted an article from the Guardian that demonstrated how in reality drone strikes are 10x more likely to harm civilians per incident. Now, thanks to a recently leaked document we find that many more civilians including children have been killed in these strikes than many of us would like to admit. In fact, of the 746 people killed in drone strikes in Pakistan from 2006-2009, an incredible 20% were civilians and 94 (13% of the total) were children.

US Prepares to Sell Saudi Arabia Warships to Help Take Down Iran

Saudi Arabian officials say they are preparing to move forward with an upgrade to the country’s navy that could include a multibillion-dollar contract for Bath Iron Works, the Reuters news service reported Wednesday.

Patrick Dewar, executive vice president of Lockheed Martin, told the news service that Saudi officials were planning to release new information over the next several months about how the country plans to proceed with SNEP.

Dewar told Reuters that the Saudis are considering whether to buy up to a dozen of Lockheed’s steel monohull Littoral Combat Ship or the larger DDG-51 destroyer built by BIW, a subsidiary of General Dynamics Corp.

‘My God, people should see this’: War critic Donahue on Tomas Young’s life after Iraq

Phil Donahue, an outspoken critic of the Iraq War taken off the air for his views, says the life of deceased veteran and war dissenter Tomas Young helped reveal consequences of the fighting, the media blackout, and manipulation by the Bush administration.

Following the 9/11 attacks, Tomas Young joined the military to help combat terrorism in Afghanistan only to be deployed to Iraq instead. When he came back paralyzed after suffering just a few days into his tour, he returned to the United States a strong, early critic of the war being waged in the Middle East.

Watchers of the Sky Falls in a Pit

The United States is a society incapable of producing a major documentary film opposing the institution of war and explicitly advocating its abolition. If it did so, the major corporate media outlets would not sing such a film's praises.

Yet Watchers of the Sky is beloved by the U.S. corporate media because it opposes genocide, not war. I'm not aware of any opponents of war who don't also oppose genocide. In fact, many oppose the two as a single evil without the stark distinction between them. But the anti-genocide academic nonprofit industrial complex has become dominated by leading advocates for war.

As the Russian jet approached the US vessel, the electronic device disabled all radars, control circuits, systems, information transmission, etc. on board the US destroyer.

The Russian Su-24 then simulated a missile attack against the USS Donald Cook, which was left literally deaf and blind. As if carrying out a training exercise, the Russian aircraft - unarmed - repeated the same maneuver 12 times before flying away.

Sweden releases sonar image confirming 'foreign submarine'

The grainy image shows underwater tracks allegedly left by the vessel.

Several sightings of an unidentified object near Stockholm sparked a huge search and Sweden's biggest military operation in years.

Naval vessels and planes searched waters near the capital but were unable to identify any intruding vessel or say which country was responsible.

Suspicion fell on Russia, but its defence ministry denied any of its ships were involved.

"The military can confirm that a small U-boat breached Sweden's territorial waters," the head of Sweden's armed forces, Gen Sverker Goransson, told a news conference.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Submarines generally avoid hitting the bottom let alone dragging along it. In Dr. John Craven's book "The Silent War" he relates a story of a US submarine, specially equipped for espionage work, getting literally stuck in the mud at one point on a mission, then uncontrollably bobbing to the surface when it finally freed itself, leading to a serious chase by anti-submarine forces from the nation being spied on.

In this case, looking at the image, I wonder if the US was running a test of the new underwater drones they are developing and somehow the depth system was off the mark, leading the drone to try to sail through the mud rather than the water.

Russian SU24 Bomber Faces Off Against US Aegis Destroyer– And Wins….12 Times.

US destroyer “Donald Cook” with cruise missiles “Tomahawk” entered the neutral waters of the Black Sea on April 10. The purpose was a demonstration of force and intimidation in connection with the position of Russia in Ukraine and Crimea. The appearance of American warships in these waters is in contradiction of the Montreux Convention about the nature and duration of stay in the Black Sea by the military ships of countries not washed by this sea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The story is that a Russian bomber made 12 simulated attack runs against the Aegis ship. All 12 times the Aegis painted the incoming "threat" with targeting radars, and all 12 times the Aegis system shut down! Aegis was designed to (depending on the various ship designs) track and engage anywhere from 90 to 120 simultaneous aerial targets. And today it cannot handle just one!

America is no longer able to build effective weapons systems. But they do manufacture pretty targets!

Okay, so let me get this straight. The US creates and funds two phony opposition groups who then go rogue, unite, and join the Iraqi people to kick the US puppet regime out of Baghdad, and after a flustercluck like that you expect us to pour what is left of our money and children into a third invasion of Iraq?

Weapons that Choose Their Own Kill Targets are Wave of Future…and Already in Use

Military developers in the United States and other Western countries are readying a whole new kind of weaponry that removes human control from targeting decisions.

At least three nations (Britain, Israel and Norway) have deployed missiles that can destroy enemy positions without any guidance from human operators. The autonomous weapons use artificial intelligence and sophisticated software to choose targets.

“An autonomous weapons arms race is already taking place,” Steve Omohundro, a physicist and artificial intelligence specialist at the California-based Self-Aware Systems, told The New York Times. “They can respond faster, more efficiently and less predictably.”

That last part about less predictably worries many who fear autonomous weapons will make warfare more likely or destructive.

Nov 13 13:30


No matter what high-blown claims the politicians make each year on Remembrance Day, The Great War was essentially a fight between two branches of a single royal family over the balance of power on the continent of Europe, British foreign policy holding to a longstanding principle that no one nation should ever be permitted to dominate the continent.

It was also a war between the world’s greatest existing imperial power, Britain, and another state, Germany, which aspired to become a greater imperial power than it was.

To a considerable extent, it was a war resulting from large standing armies and great arms races, a telling indictment of those who preach the false gospel of ever-greater military strength to defend freedom. As with any huge, shiny new investment, great armies will always be used, and the results are almost invariably great misery.

NATO 1949: The Origin of an Offensive, Expansionist, Imperialist Military Alliance

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization, NATO, was launched sixty five years ago following the signature of the Atlantic Pact in 1949. The original member states that came together under US tutelage claimed that their alliance was dedicated to the preservation of peace and to the defence of Western Europe against the supposed threat of military aggression. It is noteworthy that the launch of NATO coincided with the intensification of the Cold War, the political division of Germany and the first tentative steps by the US and Britain to rearm the new West German state.

Azerbaijan Risks New Armenia Conflict as Military Chopper Downed

Azerbaijan shot down an Armenian helicopter that it said violated its airspace in an attack that may trigger fresh confrontations between the two countries over a disputed region.

The Mi-24 helicopter was “trying to attack” Azeri positions near a cease-fire line when it was hit, the Defense Ministry in Baku said on its website. Armenia’s Defense Ministry said the aircraft was unarmed and called its downing an “unprecedented provocation.”

“This is the worst military incident in more than 20 years since the cease-fire,” Thomas de Waal, senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said by e-mail from Washington.

Armenia and Azerbaijan fought a war as the Soviet Union collapsed that claimed about 30,000 lives and displaced 1.2 million people. The latest rupture of the 1994 cease-fire marks a potentially dangerous turn in the Caucasus flashpoint located between Turkey, Iran and Russia, which has a mutual defense pact with Armenia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is not just the chopper which got shot down, but its crew, which could be dead; there are no indications in this story that there were any survivors.

This could get nasty in a heartbeat, because Armenia and Azerbaijan have had rough relations over the years, due to Armenia having seized Nagorno-Karabakh, and the reality Russia has a mutual defense pact with Armenia.

To all the adults in the room in the bowels of geopolitics, wherever the heck you are, whatever the heck you are doing, please drop it, and see what you can do to hold this fragile peace together.

As you understand, the risks of a war in this region may well be a prelude to a much wider military confrontation.

Even The Troops Are Waking Up

Nov 11 10:39


So, here is one veteran; not a glyph on a wall, but a man with a name, a face, and a history. To his friends and family he was a real human being, even though to the War Department he was just another statistic.

But as I think back on him, I know for a fact that he and the millions of others who served in all the various wars the United States became entangled in would be shocked and saddened to see that the government for which they sacrificed so much has become the very embodiment of all that they fought so hard against. No more First Amendment, warrantless spying on Americans, show trials, confessions extracted by torture; for this Walter gave up a lung?

Pentagon sex assault survey raises doubts of accuracy

This year, the Defense Department Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office (SAPRO) turned the polling over to the Rand Corp. It has made big changes in the way the Pentagon previously tried to capture the percentage of women who are victims of sexual assault, also defined as unwanted sexual contact.

In 2012, the last time the Pentagon itself did the questioning, it created a pool of only 108,000 service members to receive emails that provided coded access to the online survey.

Rand expanded the pool, first by asking every active-duty servicewoman — about 200,000 — to take the anonymous survey. And it is asking more than 300,000 men as well, plus troops in the reserve forces.

Much is a stake for the 1.4 million active force. The survey’s biennial release triggers blanket news media coverage. And the numbers set off an uproar from some lawmakers who deride the military culture and upbraid the top brass.

You don't protect my freedom: Our childish insistence on calling soldiers heroes deadens real democracy

Wars that are not heroic have no real heroes, except for the people who oppose those wars. Far from being the heroes of recent wars, American troops are among their victims. No rational person can blame the soldier, the Marine, the airman, or the Navy man for the stupid and destructive foreign policy of the U.S. government, but calling them “heroes,” and settling for nothing less, makes honest and critical conversations about American foreign policy less likely to happen. If all troops are heroes, it doesn’t make much sense to call their mission unnecessary and unjust. It also makes conversations about the sexual assault epidemic, or the killing of innocent civilians, impossible. If all troops are heroes, it doesn’t make any sense to acknowledge that some are rapists and sadists.

Major Democratic Donor: Israel Should “Bomb The Daylights” Out Of Iran

America with Beats Headphones, Listening to the Bad Drug Dysfunctionata Sonata.

At the same time there is the ongoing war against all things Muslim, by the Israeli Banker Crime Syndicate, which owns and operates a good portion of the western governments. From the ranks of these stupefied and hypnotized goons, they draw endless ranks of canon fodder, to die in the J Street and K Street Wars. This is what happens after years of case after case of Miller Lite Reconstituted Urine and Hog Nostril Pizzas, with Fritos sprinkled all over the top. As Papa John says to Peyton Manning in the commercial, “I can’t believe it took me 20 years to decide to put Fritos on my pizzas!” It shouldn’t take him another 20 years to decide to put Hammond’s Chocolate Caramel Marshmallow Eggs on his pizzas too. People will buy it. They'll buy shit if you serve it to them warm. That’s what cutting edge is all about. It’s about being innovative. It’s about risk taking.

World ominously close to nuclear war – Noam Chomsky to RT

The world has come ominously close to a nuclear war in the past and it could happen again as Russia and the West have slipped back into what seems like another Cold War, world-renowned scholar Noam Chomsky tells RT’s Sophie&Co.

Once NATO has expanded its borders all the way to reach Russia, its mission has very much changed since it was initially established, Chomsky said. Now, its aim is to take control of global energy systems rather than maintaining intergovernmental military balance.

The world has never been closer to a nuclear war that could wipe out all of its initiators, and the threat is no longer a thing of history, according to Chomsky.

Ukraine Begins “Large-Scale” Offensive In Donetsk; “War Has Resumed” Rebel Leader Warns

Ebola is solved. Oil price drops are "unequivocally good news". The US election is positive. Draghi promised to do whatever it takes again. And Ukraine is in ceasefire.So why is it that Donetsk's Deputy Prime Minister Andriy Purgin claims Ukrainian security officials have started full-scale fighting, clashing 26 times today according to Ukraine military. With tanks advancing, Purgin exclaims, "now there is a full-scale war... attacking us, we are defending."

The Day Israel Attacked America

In 1967, at the height of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War, the Israeli Air Force launched an unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty, a US Navy spy ship that was monitoring the conflict from the safety of international waters in the Mediterranean.

Israeli jet fighters hit the vessel with rockets, cannon fire and napalm, before three Israeli torpedo boats moved in to launch a second more devastating attack. Though she did not sink, the Liberty was badly damaged. Thirty-four US servicemen and civilian analysts were killed, another 171 were wounded.

Later Israel apologised for what it claimed to be a tragic case of mistaken identity. It said that it had believed the ship to be hostile Egyptian naval vessel. US President Lyndon Johnson was privately furious but publicly the White House chose not to challenge the word of its closest Middle East ally and accepted that the attack had been a catastrophic accident.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the official Al Jazeera page for their recent documentary "The Day Israel Attacked America." Sadly it does not include the video itself, which is being scrubbed from YouTube as fas as they go up.

But what is worth reading are the comments on this page by Israel's defenders, who as usual are screaming that this is all an anti-Semitic plot!However, yesterday, no less than the Jerusalem Post confirmed that the government of Israel KNEW they were attacking an American ship when they attacked the USS Liberty.

No doubt the commenters below will now start screaming that the Jerusalem Post is anti-Semitic!

Left unmentioned in the Al Jazeera documentary (but covered in earlier ones) was that this was a naval variation of the Lavon Affair in which Israel attacked an American asset while framing Egypt for it, and the US was preparing an air strike against Egypt when the USS Liberty finally got a radio message out identifying who their real attackers were, which is the moment when Israel quit trying to sink the ship.

What is significant about the Al Jazeera docuentary is how much attention it has attracted. As I mentioned above, there have been previous documentaries about the USS Liberty such as BBC's "Dead in the Water", which came and went with little notice. That the current documentary has gained so much traction underscores that people are more willing to take an objective look at Israel's behavior these days, undeterred by screams of "anti-Semite" and "Jew Hater", accompanied by endless wagging of Hitler and the Nazis.

Inside the UN Resolution on Depleted Uranium

On October 31, a new United Nations General Assembly First Committee resolution on depleted uranium (DU) weapons passed overwhelmingly. There were 143 states in favor, four against, and 26 abstentions. The measure calls for UN member states to provide assistance to countries contaminated by the weapons. The resolution also notes the need for health and environmental research on depleted uranium weapons in conflict situations.

This fifth UN resolution on the subject was fiercely opposed by four depleted uranium-shooting countries — Britain, the United States, France and Israel — who cast the only votes in opposition. The 26 states that abstained reportedly sought to avoid souring lucrative trade relationships with the four major shooters.

ISIS: the Useful Enemy

The dark force of ISIS is apparently an invincible and unstoppable war juggernaut that is mercilessly killing and conquering in pursuit of establishing an Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. In reality, however, it is not as out of control as it appears. It is, indeed, carefully controlled and managed by its creators and supporters, that is, by the United States and its allies in the region—those who now pretend to have established a coalition to fight it! The U.S., Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and other allies in the region do not really need to fight ISIS to (allegedly) destroy it; all they need to do to extinguish its hellish flames is stop supplying fuel for its fire, that is, stop supplying it with funds, mercenaries, military training and armaments.

Australia Army recruits angry about having to buy their own safety equipment

ARMY recruits about to see the buying power of their pay packets go backwards will still have to spend their own money on proper equipment.

Privates on around $44,000 a year sometimes have to privately buy military backpacks and even boots for an average cost of $500 each, according to a survey by iSoldier, a web site selling the items.

Defence personnel past and present are furious over a meagre 1.5 per cent a year pay rise servicemen and women will receive as the Government warns it will be reining in wages across the public sector.

West Re-Arms Nusra - Mainstream Media Continues Coverup

On a number of occasions, I have documented in relative detail how ISIS, ISIL, Al-Qaeda, al-Nusra, and the FSA are not only small divisions of the same fighting force but also how they are entirely controlled by NATO and Western intelligence agencies. Indeed, the documentation of these relationships is so plentiful as to preclude any attempt to collect even a substantial portion of it in one place. Yet, only in the bits of dribble provided by mainstream media outlets is there the pretense that the above-listed terrorist organizations are anything but NATO’s and the CIA’s Arab legion.

Israel and the United States used the inauguration of a joint warplane project on Tuesday to stress it was business as usual in an alliance hit by acrimony over Israeli settlement building and strategy against Iran.

At a ceremony at the Israeli manufacturer of wings for Lockheed Martin Corp’s F-35 jet fighter, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon described his country’s participation in the project as evidence that bilateral ties were bulletproof.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama have often been at odds over how to respond to Palestinian statehood demands or balance diplomacy and the threat of force in curbing Iran’s disputed nuclear program.

Pearl Harbor: Roosevelt’s 9/11

Up until then, however, Americans had overwhelmingly opposed involvement in World War II. They had been thoroughly disillusioned by the First World War:

although they had been told they would be fighting for “democracy” in that previous war, taxpayers learned from the postwar Graham Committee of Congress that they’d been defrauded out of some $6 billion in armaments that were never manufactured or delivered1;
atrocity tales about German soldiers (such as cutting the hands off thousands of Belgian children) had turned out to be fabrications;
the sinking of the Lusitania – the central provocation that ultimately led to the U.S. declaration of war – had been committed by Germany not to kill women and children (as propaganda claimed), but to prevent tens of tons of war munitions from reaching the European front. (Click here for a debunking of the Lusitania myth.)

Obama To Request Authorization for Iraq and Syria War

In his first public statement after the midterm elections, President Barack Obama said he would ask Congress for a new authorization of force to fight the Islamic State, the jihadist group currently operating in Iraq and Syria. The authorization the White House is seeking will replace the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force against al Qaeda that provided the legal basis for the invasion of Afghanistan and the 2002 authorization that gave legal cover for the invasion of Iraq. The administration had relied on the previous authorizations for the current campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria despite protests from members of both parties in Congress.

What Do US Election Results Mean for US-Israel Relations?

Prof. Eytan Gilboa, an expert on American-Israeli relations, spoke with Arutz Sheva about what he deemed the "three major issues Israel is concerned about," that could be significantly impacted by this change in US legislative control.

The first - the war with Islamic State (ISIS). Although the United States has been launching airstrikes against the terrorist group in Syria and Iraq, many Republicans feel the Obama administration's foreign policy is not doing enough against what many constituents view as a "serious threat."

With the Republican victory an increase in military spending and a comprehensive debate over policy toward the Islamic State seems likely.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, this election changed nothing. The US Government still bows to Israel, the economy will continue to loot the poor to give to the rich, your children will continue to die in wars.

Are Progressives Finking Out on Foreign Policy?

For all the endless fund-raising appeals and election hyperbole, few progressive politicians want to talk about our biggest foreign policy challenge, the escalation of American involvement in Syria and Iraq. Both Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders voted against training and arming the “moderates” in Syria. But neither have wanted to make an issue of Obama’s military intervention, and few on the left have called for them to do so.

This is sad, but not surprising, as I warned over a year ago in “Don’t Let Hillary Housebreak the New, New Left.” It’s wonderful that voters want more populist domestic policies, and it’s marvelously misleading that the multi-millionaire Clinton is verbally attacking Wall Street billionaires. I don’t think this is what my old comrades had in mind when they talked of class struggle.

Why is there such an explosion of violence across the Middle East? Here's an alternative view...

Not so with America and the war in Syria. “Right from the beginning of this crisis, I never truly felt that the issue was about President Assad,” she says. “It was about the weakening and destruction of Syria. There has been so much destruction – of hospitals, schools, factories, government institutions, you name it. I think the Americans take their battles against leaders and presidents – but only as a pretext to destroy countries. Saddam was not the real target –it was Iraq. And it’s the same for Libya now – America told everyone it was about Gaddafi. The real issue is about weakening the Arab armies, whoever they are. When the Americans invaded Iraq, what was the first thing they did? They dissolved the Iraqi army.”

Airstrikes not enough to stop ISIL, François Hollande tells Parliament

Free College or Another New War?

Noting that U.S. college costs have gone up 500% since 1985, the Washington Post recommends seven countries where U.S. students can go to college for free without bothering to learn the language of the natives or anything so primitive.

These are nations with less wealth than the United States has, but which make college free or nearly free, both for citizens and for dangerous illegals visiting their Homelands.

How do they do it?

Three of them have a higher top tax rate than the United States has, but four of them don’t.

What does the United States spend its money on that these other countries do not? What is the largest public program in the United States? What makes up over 50% of federal discretionary spending in the United States?

If you said “war,” it’s possible you were educated in a fine foreign country.

No matter who wins, today's election outcome can't stop America's head-on course toward self-destruction

Regardless of the outcome of today's U.S. mid-term elections, there are some things that won't change one iota. While most of America has finally come to realize what a disaster Obama's presidency has really been in real-world terms, there are at least five other disasters looming in America's near future. And neither Republicans nor Democrats have any real plan to deal with these issues... especially when it's so much easier to get elected by slandering your opponent rather than proposing practical solutions.

So here's my warning on the five biggest threats still facing America in the years ahead. Don't hold your breath thinking anyone in Washington D.C. is willing to address any of these. After all, they are the ones who created most of these problems in the first place.

US Destroying Syria’s Oil Infrastructure Under Guise of Fighting ISIS

The US is considering bombing pipelines in Syria, which it claims is in an attempt to cut off the huge profits being made by ISIS from captured oilfields.

The Independent quotes Julieta Valls Noyes, the deputy assistant secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs during a visit to London, that ISIS was making $2 million a day off oil sales and that the US would consider airstrikes as well as “kinetic strikes against some pipelines” and “actual physical action to stop the flow”.

The trouble with this justification for destroying Syria’s oil pipelines, is that ISIS does not have the capability to use the pipelines to transfer oil. ISIS transports the stolen oil on the back of trucks, and sells it on the black market in Turkey.

9/11 Was NATO’s License to Expand Globally

The 9/11 attacks on the United States undoubtedly benefited a number of actors, including the American military-intelligence complex, Israel, and most definitely, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The Cold War-era, the area of responsibility for which had long been confined to Europe and North America, used the provisions of Article 5 of the NATO Charter – which states that an attack on one member is an attack on all – to extend NATO’s power deep into Eurasia, particularly in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Kyrgyzstan.

After engaging in out-of-area invasions and occupations of Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, and Syria and, again in Iraq, against the «Islamic State,» the «North Atlantic» military bloc has transformed itself from a Cold War defensive alliance into a global offensive axis of nations that acts with or without United Nations authorization.

It will come to pass that many will find it no longer possible to live where they are, while at the same time, having waited too long, are no longer able to move away. Things can occur at a previously unimagined speed, while taking all kinds of frightening and unexpected turns. It stands to reason that the further away one is from the epicenters, the better ones chances are.

Nato jets intercept Russian warplanes following 'unusual level of air activity'

Nato aircraft have been scrambled to shadow Russian strategic bombers over the Atlantic and Black Sea and fighter planes over the Baltic in what the western alliance called an unusual burst of activity as tensions remain elevated because of the situation in Ukraine.

In all, Nato said, its jets intercepted four groups of Russian aircraft in about 24 hours since Tuesday and some were still on manoeuvres late on Wednesday afternoon.

“These sizeable Russian flights represent an unusual level of air activity over European air space,” the alliance said.
