Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize was ‘premature’: Journalist

Awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to US President Barack Obama in 2009 was “premature” and based on unfulfilled promises rather than meaningful actions, an American social issues journalist says.

RUSSIA IS CONCERNED ABOUT AMERICA'S FAR-OFF SPACE WEAPONS

In a near-future war, 1,000 missiles scream toward Russia at Mach 20. Each one a pinpoint strike hitting the Kremlin’s nuclear missiles, military radars, submarine bases—you name it. Within minutes, 80 percent of Russia’s nuclear arsenal is destroyed without the United States launching a single nuclear weapon of its own. Russia’s military networks are blind, the nation’s ability to strike back eliminated or severely degraded.

The GOP Debate: Outsiders Versus Warmongers

That the second Republican presidential debate resembled an episode of the Jerry Springer Show was, in part, due to the insufferable Jake Tapper, whose behavior resembled that kid in high school who was always passing poison pen notes around math class. Indeed, the whole sorry mess – all three hours of it – had a high schoolish aura about it best underscored by Sen. Rand Paul early on when he described the behavior onstage as “sophomoric.”

Massive Protests In Japan Over New War Bills

By Brandon Turbeville

Over the past few weeks, Japan has been the scene of massive protests taking place all across the country. The impetus for the protests is a new policy being promoted by the Japanese government that would effectively allow for the use of Japan’s military abroad and in the service of what many would describe as imperialist agendas.

The new “security bills” being promoted by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe are at the heart of the recent protests due to the fact that many Japanese see their ultimate passage as a major step toward the return of an imperialist Japan and a country that will soon be using its military in conflicts abroad...

End of Japan’s pacifism? Parliament approves war bills allowing troops to fight abroad.

The upper house of Japan's parliament has approved legislation giving more power to the armed forces. This includes permitting the military to fight overseas – something banned for 70 years since WWII.

The Upper House’s final session was called late Friday night and finished early Saturday morning with the enactment of the two controversial security bills. The laws are expected to mark a significant departure from Japan’s postwar pacifism.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, whose ruling block extended the session to Sept. 27 and voted down all the motions from the opposition to ensure that the legislation was passed, says that Japan needs to be up to the challenge in today’s world, taking into account a rising threat from China.

'New drone technology can target any American airbase that threatens Iran'

Check out this comment on this article.This guy is threatening a sitting US President. A drone false flag in the offing! Better not Israel!
zionist forever • 2 hours ago

Dear Lt Commander Salmi

I read your speech with great enthusiasm and wanted to explain to you that the Marine 1 presidential helicopter takes off and lands on the White House lawn so the White House could be considered to be an airbase.
As you have these wonderful new drones that can hit any US airbase I was thinking prehaps you would like to send one of them to the White House base and fire a few missiles at the Oval Office.

Whoever is president after that will have no choice but to declare war on that worthless entity you call Iran and bomb it and your nuclear program back to the stone age.

Please feel free to contact me anytime you wish and we can maybe discuss the idea further

Under Toxic Fire: How the Clintons Helped Cover-Up Gulf War Syndrome

snip: The Pentagon was also aware that vital ingredients for these weapons had been supplied by U.S. corporations in a secret export drive supported by both the United States and British governments. Chiefly involved here were lewisite, an ammonia-like vesicant used in chemical weapons, and ingredients for Sarin and for another nerve weapon called Soman, as well as for yet another nerve weapon, VX. So far as biological weapons were concerned, there were approved U.S. sales to Iraq of anthrax, botulism, histoplasm capsulatum (a tuberculosis-type disease), brucella melitensis (a bacterium that causes chronic fatigue), clostridium perfringens (a bacterium causing gas gangrene), plus numerous shipments of E. coli.

Refugees as Weapon – and Germany shifting Alliances?

Germany alongside Russia might indeed defend and help preserve the Assad government, together with Iran the two stabilizing factors in the Middle East.

As a parallel or backup plan, the unholy alliance between Washington, NATO and Turkey agreed to open Turkey’s flood gates for refugees, actually promoting the exodus to gain free reign in the safe heavens and to build up a mass of refugees – most of whom want to flee to Germany – which in the right moment could be let go and cause the right pressure or destabilization effects in Europe. Well, this is just happening.

Putin’s Line in the Sand: No Regime Change in Syria

By allowing US F-16s to patrol the skies over Syria, Washington will impose a de facto no-fly zone over the country severely limiting Assad’s ability to battle the US-backed militias that have seized large swaths of the countryside and are now descending on Damascus.

The Syrian war can be divided into two parts: The pre-Incirlik period and the post-Incirlik period. The pre-Incirlik period is roughly the four year stretch during which US-backed Islamic militias and al Qaida-linked groups fought the Syrian army with the intention of removing President Bashar al Assad from power. This first phase of the war ended in a draw.

Russia, Iran, China, Venezuela Use 'Superweapon' Against US... Diplomacy

The US employs an array of instruments to counter the four nations, including sanctions and support for far right groups worldwide, the media outlet noted.

"Washington never misses an opportunity to meddle in the internal affairs of Moscow, Tehran, Beijing and Caracas; it tries to exert pressure on [the four countries], surround them with unfriendly regimes and keep them on their toes," the media outlet pointed out.

The United States, according to Rebelion, uses Ukraine and the European Union to "destabilize" Russia, the "bleeding" Middle East to weaken Iran, Japan and the standoff between two Koreas to pressure China.

But these nations are good at warding off attacks.

HISTORIC NEWS: Finally, EU Breaks Away from U.S.

On Saturday, September 12th, United Kingdom’s Labour Party elected as its leader and their candidate to lead the UK, Jeremy Corbyn, who has been the most vocal British critic of the UK’s serving as the lap-dog of an aggressive imperialistic United States of America.

Simultaneously, the leader of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s own Christian Social Union Party, Horst Seehofer, a man who, prior to his being appointed to be the Party-chief had been Chancellor Merkel’s Agriculture Minister, has now turned against Chancellor Merkel (who until now was the most powerful leader in all of Europe) and denounced her policy on the refugee crisis, and has now stated publicly that Germany should instead ally with Russia and against NATO on the entire Syrian war.

Electronic Warfare Expected in New World of Drones and Anti-Drones

By Nicholas West

As the global drone arms race continues to expand, so do the counter measures.

The proliferation of commercial drones, in particular, is expected to present new challenges to an increasingly crowded sky. Among commercial and military drones is the potential for swarms of micro-drones that can be hidden in plain sight … at least to the naked eye. However, drones are never hidden from the electromagnetic spectrum.

A UK defense firm announced that it is working on a comprehensive defense shield that aims to “control the electromagnetic spectrum” – electronic warfare...

US does not want Assad regime in Syria to fall — Russian envoy at UN

Who is minding the store.Is someone else making policy other than the White House? The Pentagon maybe? Something is going on!

UNITED NATIONS, September 16. /TASS/. The United States no longer wants the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad to fall, Russia’s Envoy at the United Nations Vitaly Churkin told CBS in an interview published on Tuesday.

"I think this is one thing we share now with the United States, with the US government: They don't want the Assad government to fall. They don't want it to fall. They want to fight (Islamic State) in a way which is not going to harm the Syrian government," Churkin said.

CBS reminded that the US has repeatedly stated that Assad must step down for the conflict to be resolved, and last week President Barack Obama said Russia's ongoing support for Assad was "a big mistake."

E-Skin Could Transform Prosthetics, Robots and Gadgets ... And Create Supersoldiers?

By Jason Erickson

Science continually looks to nature to provide inspiration and practicality to next-generation technologies. This has commonly been seen in all types of robotics, including drones.

Concurrently, incredible advancements in prosthetics are enabling both the paralyzed and amputees to have a real chance at feeling again thanks to brain-computer interface technology.

The latest development aims to merge the wonders of human skin with another of nature's wonders: the chameleon. In so doing, we once again are confronted with acknowledging the many benefits of new technology while keeping firmly in mind how much of modern science is driven top-down by military funding and research...

Putin v. Obama on Syria

snip: America wages global wars OF terror on humanity, raging endlessly in multiple theaters and at home against Muslims, people of color, unwanted immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers, as well as anyone challenging US hegemonic aims.

Putin responsibly helps Bashar al-Assad defeat the scourge of US-imported Islamic State and other takfiri terrorists - supplying weapons, munitions, technology and humanitarian aid.

Obama bullied Bulgaria, Greece, Iraq and other countries to prohibit Russian aid flights through their airspace to Syria. Thus far, Iraq and Greece refused. So did Iran.

Putin urges forming an international anti-terrorism coalition to defeat ISIS and other takfiri groups - a growing regional spreading threat, a scourge on humanity wherever they’re deployed.

RECKLESS HYPOCRISY – The Folly of Self-Righteous Indignation

Iran has not been and is not intending to build a nuclear arsenal; but who can admit that fact – Obama, Clinton, Kerry?

Could we expect President Obama to confess that Iran’s nuclear ambitions to develop a bomb has been a politically motivated fictional narrative serving other purposes? Could he advocate the idea that replacing Israel with Iran would be the most “advantageous” step to pursue America’s true strategic interests in the Middle East? No, not in this lifetime!

Therefore, the hardline, even sounding like a born again-neoconservative, rhetoric by Hillary Clinton that the United States under her presidency would take an extremely hawkish position against any Iranian intransigence is as genuine a threat as threatening to nuke Iran if the Supreme Leader jumps over the moon!! Iran has not been and is not intending to build a nuclear arsenal; but who can admit that fact – Obama, Clinton, Kerry?

Obama gives Muslim refugees priority over homeless military vets

Obama and his minions are in the process of calculating how many refugees fleeing the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) will be brought to U.S. communities, with some claiming as many as 70,000 will be the start of the U.S. humanitarian program. The plan is expected to include housing, food, clothing, healthcare and other necessities which will be waiting for the arrival of those fleeing war-torn Syria and Iraq.

Unfortunately, Americans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan or both do not have the benefits being afforded to the Muslim refugees. The veterans who are homeless in America -- between 130,000 and 200,000 -- are between one fourth and one-fifth of all homeless people. Almost 500,000 veterans are struggling with paying their rents and are at risk of ending up on the streets and homeless.

According to Telesur’s report on September 10th “Fundamedios engaged “partisan political activities” by sharing material on its social media accounts, publishing articles unrelated to its stated mission and inserting itself into political debates in the country”which according to the National Secretariat of Communication or ‘Secom’ is prohibited under Ecuadorian law.

What Hillary Clinton wants you to forget: Her disastrous record as a war hawk

It’s worth remembering that while Clinton infamously voted to invade Iraq, of course, she was also notably trigger-happy during her time at the State Department. These days, you’re more likely to hear about Benghazi when the topic of Clinton and Libya comes up, but far more important was the key role she played in pushing for intervention there in the first place. (A now laughably laudatory Washington Post article from 2011 called it “Hillary’s war.”) Referring to Muammar Gaddafi, Clinton infamously crowed, “We came, we saw, he died,” which, no matter what you think of him, is quite a thing to say about the brutal killing of a political leader. Years later, it’s clear that the decision to go into Libya was an epic mistake. The country has essentially ceased to exist.

Ted [Born in Canada] Cruz Ad Uses Scorpion to Depict Threat of Islamic Terror

For aficionados of political ads, the line “There’s a bear in the woods” still brings a shivery memory of a 1984 spot for Ronald Reagan that helped define his foreign policy of peace through strength.

During the Republican debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California on Wednesday, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas will evoke that memory in a 30-second ad featuring a scorpion crawling in the desert.

The text of “Scorpion” is a line-by-line homage to the Reagan spot, evoking the threat of Middle East terrorism rather than the Cold War-era Soviet Union, which the Reagan ad symbolized by using a grizzly bear walking menacingly in a forest.

“There’s a scorpion in the desert,’’ an announcer says in the Cruz ad, as the camera shows various angles of the insect and its hooked stinger.

Is war criminal Tony Blair up shit-creek without a paddle?

In the light of the recent Labour leadership victory by Jeremy Corbyn, the current migrant crisis and growing threat of ISIS, it is no wonder that thoughts are turning back to the Chilcot Report. Commissioned in 2009 to investigate the circumstances leading to the Iraq War, the inquiry is still no closer to having an agreed publishing date, much to the anger and frustration of the families of the servicemen and women who lost their lives during the conflict.

It has even been suggested that these ongoing delays are caused by “vested interests”, and it is certainly no secret that vital evidence has been suppressed that points the finger at Tony Blair for misleading the nation and plunging the country into an illegal war.

U.S. Aerial Surveillance is Being Impaired Off the East Coast Until October 1st Due to “Military Activities”

UH!OH! Can you say FALSE FLAG children!

In a nutshell, it appears that aerial surveillance across much of the East Coast will be impaired until October 1 due to “military activities.”

Submitted by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:

A notam issued Sept. 1 announced that, beginning Sept. 2, both ADS-B surveillance and TCAS may be unreliable in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, as well as in airspace extending approximately 200 nautical miles off shore. The situation is expected to last through Oct. 1 as a result of military exercises in the area.

But similar military exercises in the past have caused no interference with civilian ADS-B or TCAS, and AOPA is asking the FAA to explain both why the notam was issued so late and what has changed to raise these new concerns.

Refugee Crisis Reminds Europe There is a Real War in Syria

Refugees are not the problem; war is. If the war in Syria doesn’t stop, the flow of refugees will only continue. The refugee wave, marked by the dramatic image of tens of thousands of Syrians trying to reach Germany from Hungary, is a phenomenon that until very recently has been confused, perhaps deliberately, with mass migration. There is an important difference: migrations are frequently driven by financial or social exclusion. What is happening now in Europe is the inevitable consequence of unresolved crises in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, and Afghanistan – all related to the collapse of these countries’ respective states, the result of wars for which the West bears much responsibility.

US Air Force General: The Russians Have Closed the Gap

Whether fact or fiction, the US has long believed itself to have the advantage in air combat. But new advances in Russian radar and missile technology have the US military admitting that its assumed superiority is dwindling, with one commander confessing "they’ve closed the gap."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Actually it is more like the US tossed away their advantage. The US weapons program is all about making money, and with cost-plus contracting, US weapons inevitably become expensive bloated gadgets that look in demonstrations but are not effective weapons. Russia and China have a different approach, which is making effective weapons which cost less, which means they can produce more of them.

Burned alive by Israelis

Incinerating humans whether in a gas chamber, military attack, by injecting petrol into the mouth or throwing a torch through a window all have one thing in common: burning is how racists manifest hate.

Five years ago at a stop during my book signing tour in San Diego, I met an adorable toddler named Farah.

She was being treated in the US for severe burns she received at the age of two.

Farah was one of thousands of civilians who were either injured or killed when Israel rained white phosphorus bombs on Gaza in 2008-2009.

The phosphorus that burned through Farah’s angelic flesh was American made and paid for by US taxpayers. Ironically, so was Farah’s treatment.

Last Sunday, mother of two Reham Dewabsha died from burn injuries.

Russia to continue military aid to Syria: President Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin says his country will continue to supply the Syrian government with military assistance.

Putin made the remarks at a Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) summit in the capital of Tajikistan, Dushanbe, on Tuesday.

He dismissed allegations that Russia’s support for Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad has resulted in a flow of refugees, saying that without Moscow’s support for the Syrian government the number of Syrian refugees heading to Europe would have even become bigger.

The ‘Refugee’ Crisis for Greater Israel

It has become increasingly obvious that the flood of refugees from the Middle East is serving the jewish agenda of creating Greater Israel (Eretz Israel). In case you are unfamiliar with the concept, Greater Israel is the vast tract of land supposedly promised to the Israelites by Yahweh, stretching from the Nile to the Euphrates.

F-35 Loses Dogfight to Fighter Jet From the 1980s

The 5th generation stealthy multirole aircraft is primarily designed for ground attack, aerial reconnaissance, and air defense missions rather than air combat. Yet, the plane obviously should still have the capacity to successfully defend itself against enemy air superiority fighters (In fact, some countries interested in procuring the F-35 want to deploy it first and foremost in an air-superiority role).

However, according to a report obtained by War is Boring, defending itself against legacy 4th generation air-superiority fighters is perhaps too tall of an order for the F-35.

LaRouche: 'Most Momentous Weeks in Modern History—We Must Now Take This Moment'

Within the next two weeks, Russian President Putin will arrive in New York with a proposal for creating a truly international coalition to crush ISIS and the other barbaric terrorist organizations spawned by the Bush-Cheney-Obama criminal wars of destruction. Russia's military initiative is already being launched in Syria, leaving President Obama and his White House team in utter confusion, exposed by Putin's brilliant flanking operation, which would make Gen. Douglas MacArthur proud.

Navy secretary threw us ‘under the bus,’ say Marines in gender-integrated infantry unit

Marines involved in a controversial experiment evaluating a gender-integrated infantry unit say they feel betrayed by Navy Secretary Ray Mabus after he criticized the results of a nine-month study that found women are injured more frequently and shoot less accurately in simulated combat conditions.

“Our secretary of the Navy completely rolled the Marine Corps and the entire staff that was involved in putting this [experiment] in place under the bus,” said Sgt. Danielle Beck, a female anti-armor gunner with the task force.

The Saker: So What Are the Russians Really Doing in Syria?

What appears to be happening is this: the Russians are, apparently, sending some limited but important gear to provide immediate assistance to the Syrian forces. In doing so, they have also created the conditions to keep their options open. So while there is not massive Russian intervention taking place, something has definitely shifted in the Syrian conflict.

I would like to add here that while the government forces have recently lost the Idlib air base in the north of the country (and not too far from Latakia), all my sources confirm to me that the Syrian forces are in a much better position than Daesh and that the war is going very badly for the Takfiris. The Syrians have recently freed the city of Zabadan and they are on the offensive in most locations and while it is true that Daesh still controls a lot of land, most of that is desert.

To summarize the above I would say this: the AngloZionists are freaking out because their war against Syria has failed; while Daesh has created havoc and terror in several countries, there are many signs that the local countries are gradually becoming determined to do something. The US has also failed to get rid of Assad, the massive refugee crisis has triggered a major political crisis in Europe, and now the Europeans are looking at Assad in a dramatically different light than before.

Putin Sends Tanks to Syria: “Largest Deployment of Outside Russian Forces Since USSR Collapse”

The announcement of tank shipments from Russia takes it to a whole new level:

Russia’s military build-up in Syria has grown to include the shipment of a half-dozen highly sophisticated battle tanks — and more troops — a defense official told Fox News, in what the source called the “first clear sign of offensive weapons arriving in Syria.”

For those on all sides of the conflict looking for an excuse to bring in outside troops, it would seem that the pretext has arrived.

The Syrian Crisis: A War Waged on Russia by US-NATO

It seems clear now that the West wants to defeat Russia in Syria at all costs. This latest protracted confrontation in the Middle East can be understood as a proxy war of the US and NATO against Putin’s resurgent Russia. But Syria is just one zone of engagement in a much wider war against Russia that has been taking place since Putin started to stand up to the West. The same confrontation also occurs in Ukraine and formerly in Georgia, where Russia successfully halted, albeit temporarily, the Western advance. This amounts to a new Cold War or an undeclared war where East and West are once more in global confrontation.

Win or Lose In Ukraine: Some Rich Bastard Wins

The conflict in Ukraine today is the handiwork of greedy, evil men intent on only one goal – profit at any cost – profit no matter what. I think most people understand this by now. What readers may not know though, are those instrumental in the death dealing, the banking elite who pull the economic strings. I hope you will help me positively identify the chief suspect in the case of the destruction of a European nation.

US-NATO Killing and Destruction

The leaders and bureaucrats of the European Union (EU) are fortunate that they have largely disarmed the citizens of EU member states. If the citizens of Europe had personal weapons, all officials at all levels of the increasingly authoritarian EU organization might well be under fire — and rightly so – for causing the horde of unwanted, unneeded, and non-assimilable migrants that is now inundating Europe.
