Russia-China Relations and the Downing of Russia’s Jet Fighter by Turkey

The downing of a Russian jet fighter over Syria’s airspace was undertaken by Turkey in consultation with Washington and Brussels. Turkey did not take this decision without getting the greenlight from the Pentagon.

Is this an act of revenge against Russia for bombing the US-sponsored Islamic State in Syria?

The unspoken truth is that Russia is undermining US-NATO’s ground operations inside Syria. The latter are made up of various Al Qaeda affiliated formations which de facto constitute the foot-soldiers of the Western alliance. These ISIS and Al Nusrah rebel forces are in turn led by intelligence operatives and Western special forces, many of whom are deployed by private mercenary companies on contract to US-NATO.

The downing of Russia’s plane by Turkey is a clear act of provocation. What is its broader intent?

How will backlash at the diplomatic level? Is military escalation contemplated by Washington?

Did NATO Just Attack Russia, Or Was It Climate Change’s Fault?

I began this morning reporting on Britain’s next king saying climate change is partly responsible for Syria’s civil war, and his blaming the refugee crisis and civil war there on drought. In an exclusive interview with Sky News, Prince Charles waxes profoundly over the lost Copenhagen climate accord in 2009, and on far reaching strategies you probably never even dreamed of. Then the news came a Russian SU24 fighter/bomber had been shot down by Turkey, and the world turned over. As I type this Twitter, Facebook, and the digital media stream is inundated with a foreign policy horror story. All I can see is Vladimir Putin’s face as Jordan’s king spoke with him, and images of Mr. Obama’s “moderates” machine gunning a pilot before his parachute set down. I wonder if the bad climate will be the cause of World War III?

NATO's Proto, Mondragone, Fortified Base Revealed

When I was a teenager in Italy, my father (U.S. Army stationed with Allied Forces Southern Europe (AFSouth)) would occasionally have to go to this secret base inside a small nearby mountain to participate in war-games.

He once told me how his Turkish counterpart would look at the "big board" an exclaim, "Ah! My country again!" Every scenario that was played involved Turkey as the flash-point.

Manufacturing a phony “caliphate”

"This thing is largely smoke and mirrors: manufacturing a phony “caliphate” out of nothing but a misfit band of thugs collected from many disparate countries—all wearing matching black outfits and masks (so that you can’t identify ethnicity), driving identical shiny Toyota trucks by the hundreds, flying identical mass-produced flags and sporting slick logos—supplied by whom?"

"When has a genuine grassroots rebellion ever looked like this? These guys are well-funded by sophisticated backers. And those backers are no friends of the Muslim world.

U.S. system to detect bioterrorism can't be counted on, government watchdog finds

‘War on terror’ made us unsafe

Today it’s not enough to mourn Paris or Beirut’s victims. We must also remember the estimated 1.3 million people who were banished directly and indirectly by the deviated “war on terrorism.” For the Zioncons’ conceived war has offered more than 1.3m reasons to recruit terrorists.

This is Why Putin Intervened in Syria

On this video you will see some very large explosions. I have no doubt we are seeing small 1-10 kiloton surface and subsurface bursts. These aren't conventional.These aren't ammo dumps or fuel air munitions. Very classic and very dirty,mushroom cloud and all. They may have used tactical nukes in Yemen also. WW3 has been going full bore for 15 years and it is accelerating.
Putin knows that Russia is on the list for takeover and puppetizing so their vast resources can be stolen. Israel made an error due to hubris and Vladimir Putin knew he had to do something. In 2013 the Russian and Chinese Navies stood in the way of a US or Israeli attack on Syria. Somebody may have fired cruise missiles at Syria that never got past those 2 Navies.
Since then everybody has been training and exercising and moving their militaries around like chess pieces. Well the Russians anyway. The US seems to be playing checkers or maybe tiddeley winks.

Suspicions about the Russian Plane Crash

"Once again, politicians, intelligence agents and journalists have made up their minds that a bomb triggered the crash of a Russian Airbus A321, though evidence to support this theory is ephemeral."
- Christine Negroni, "Why the rush to judgment in the Metrojet disaster?"

[Carmi] Gillon suggested that today a terror organization could take over a jet plane and “achieve something like 9-11” without fielding any flesh and blood attackers.
- Carmi Gillon, former head of Israel’s Shin Bet security service, “The double-edged sword of cyber warfare,” Times of Israel, June 24, 2015

“Cyberspace enables the attack of another nation state in offensive action, even reaching victory without leaving any fingerprints, even if it is suspected. We are already there; we are not talking about some distant future. We have experienced this in Israel’s day-to-day actions against its enemies.”
- Israel Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Ibid., Times of Israel, June 24, 2015

The Legacy of The Westlake Nuclear Waste Landfill

On this edition of DTRH Popeye welcomes back to the broadcast Dawn Chapman of Just Moms STL (www.stlradwastelegacy.com/). The two of them have a very down to earth conversation about: The reality of what is going on currently with the landfill, and the ongoing underground fire at the regular waste landfill next door; What this reality means for the people who live there; The resistance at every government level that they have encountered while trying to get answers; The need for community wide action on the ground there; Some solutions to start with, and more. Throughout the broadcast they stress the point to the people in the area affected by Westlake that they are not alone and as isolated as it may seem. Tune into this powerful broadcast.

GridExIII Drill Coincides with American Terror Threat: “ISIS Cells Could Attack Our Power Grid”

The threat of an ISIS attack on U.S. soil has become tangible... all while the North American Energy Reliance Corporation (NERC) has launched GridExIII, high level national security exercises for November 18-19... simulating an attack on the power grid:

“NERC’s grid security exercise (GridEx III) is designed for electric utilities to exercise their response to simulated coordinated cyber and physical security threats and incidents…"

Rogue cells inside a legitimate drill COULD be used to take down the entire power grid, and emergency response teams would play along in real time as if it were only a scenario. By then, it might be too late.

Approaching Global Insanity

What's really at stake if the world gets conned again and gives in to USI, Israel & NATO, supposedly under the global silence of the UN ­ will be nothing less than the conscription of every NATO “nation” into an all out and probably nuclear war, which will more than likely end in a nuclear conflagration which this planet cannot survive.

That 'war' will directly INVOLVE the lives of every man woman and child,
that is living on this planet today.

Every nation must close their borders, rise up and send back all the undocumented, to wherever they came from ­ immediately.

If this is not done, together with OUTLAWING

every part of Political Correctness and Zero Tolerance,
in every country,then humanity and nature are equally doomed to die
a very ugly death and this will happen very soon, if the global public does not act!

Paris was tragic, yet global terrorism from the USA mass-murder machine is ignored

The recent events in Paris were undoubtedly horrific, and our thoughts are with those affected by these atrocious acts. The victims and their families, innocent people who did not volunteer to fight in any war, these defenceless civilians were attacked in the most heinous way possible.

And while the world’s media turns its gaze to Paris, there is another act of terrorism happening every day that the corporate media chooses to ignore.

Do We Really Want a New World War With Russia?

Washington continues making an international fool of herself by her inability to effectively counter the impression around the world that Russia, spending less than 10% of the Pentagon annually on defense, has managed to do more against ISIS in Syria in six weeks than the mighty US Air Force bombing campaign has done in almost a year and half. One aspect that bears attention is the demonstration by the Russian military of new technologies that belie the widely-held Western notion that Russia is little more than a backward oil and raw material commodity exporter.

How John McCain Wound Up Canoodling With Terrorists

Now, however, it’s time to debunk the "debunking," because the truth is finally coming out – and it’s worse for McCain than even Sen. Paul imagined. It turns out the frenetic Arizona warmonger met with members of the Northern Storm Brigade – the group that handed US journalist Steven Sotloff over to ISIS as he crossed the border into Syria.

McCain Poses With Alleged Terrorists -- Proof That Involvement in Syria Is a Bad Idea

AP
The photo of John McCain posing with terrorists and kidnappers in Syria encapsulates, perfectly, everything wrong with the position of McCain and others that the U.S. ought to insert itself into Syria's civil war.

It was revealed this morning that McCain, during his personal mission to Syria to meet with rebels, appeared in photos with Mohammed Nour and Abu Ibrahim, two members of the Sunni "Northern Storm" brigade, which kidnapped 11 Lebanese Shia pilgrims, who were on their way back to Lebanon, from Iran. The group is still holding nine of the hostages.

This should give everyone pause when it comes to ramping up support for the rebels by arming them.

Submerged Russian nuclear sub test-fires 2 ballistic Bulava missiles (VIDEO)

The Russian strategic submarine, the Vladimir Monomakh, has carried out a double Bulava ballistic missile test launch from a submerged position in the White Sea, successfully hitting two targets in the Kamchatka region in Russia’s Far East.

“Salvo firing from a submerged position was made in accordance with the plan of combat training. The parameters trajectory of two ICBM 'Bulava' worked normally. As confirmed by objective monitoring, the missile warheads successfully arrived at the Kura test site in Kamchatka,” the Defense Ministry’s press service reported.

Did Russia just “gently” threaten the USA?

The presentation slide titled “Ocean Multipurpose System: Status-6” showed some drawings of a new nuclear submarine weapons system. It is apparently designed to bypass NATO radars and any existing missile defense systems, while also causing heavy damage to “important economic facilities” along the enemy’s coastal regions. The footnote to the slide stated that Status-6 is intended to cause “assured unacceptable damage” to an adversary force. Its detonation “in the area of the enemy coast” would result in “extensive zones of radioactive contamination” that would ensure that the region would not be used for “military, economic, business or other activity” for a “long time.” According to the blurred information provided in the slide, the system represents a massive torpedo, designated as “self-propelled underwater vehicle,” with a range of up to 10 thousand kilometers and capable of operating at a depth of up to 1,000 meters.

The DHS Is Getting A Wearable Radiation Detector

The easiest way to detect nuclear material is typically when it's already too late. By the time seismographs, infrasound sensors, and radiation readers pick up on a blast, it’s already happened. Catching a nuclear weapon before it goes off is a lot trickier, which might be why the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is looking at some rather unconventional ideas. The latest: a small, wearable radiation detector. Think of it like a FitBit, only instead of telling its user about calories burned, it lets them know if they’re close to any nuclear weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Together with that story about Russians smuggling enough nuclear materials to make a bomb, I think someone is thinking about a nuclear 9-11 here in the US to kick off WW3!

In effect, Putin offered the most air-tight argument for why the President of the United States must be removed from office now.

America's new, more 'usable', nuclear bomb in Europe

The $8 billion upgrade to the US B61 nuclear bomb has been widely condemned as an awful lot of money to spend on an obsolete weapon. As an old fashioned ‘dumb’ bomb it has no role in US or NATO nuclear doctrine, but the upgrade has gone ahead anyway, in large part as a result of lobbying by the nuclear weapons laboratories.

FLASHBACK: Sleeping With the Devil: How U.S. and Saudi Backing of Al Qaeda Led to 9/11

A little disingenuous or CUDP on the blowback angle but I like the pics and the vids!

Preface: The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan – Lt. General William Odom – noted:

Because the United States itself has a long record of supporting terrorists and using terrorist tactics, the slogans of today’s war on terrorism merely makes the United States look hypocritical to the rest of the world.

Odom also said:

By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation.

The Disturbing Reason For The Navy’s Trident Missile Test

Truth be told, the Navy has tested this missile over a 150 times before with little fanfare. In fact, they did another test early Monday afternoon and nobody noticed. So what gives?

For now the Navy is playing dumb, and have claimed that they had no idea the test would create such a spectacular view. However, the spectacle seems awfully convenient given the current tensions between the US, Russia, and China. It’s also pretty convenient, given what Defense Secretary Ash Carter told the media a day before the launch.

Putin: US missile defense aimed at neutralizing Russia nukes, N. Korea & Iran just a cover

“References to Iran and North Korea nuclear threats are just a cover for the true purpose [of NATO missile defense]. That is to neutralize the potential of other nuclear states not the US or its allies – primarily Russia,” Putin said during a meeting in Sochi dedicated to national military development. “The US is attempting to achieve strategic military superiority, with all the consequences that entails.”

In response, the Russian leader promised Russia would take the “necessary measures to respond by strengthening its own missile defense.”

“And at the first stage we are also going to develop strike weapons that can penetrate any missile defense shield.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Actually, Russia already has. The entire US Ballistic missile defense system is based, as the name indicates, on an incoming ballistic threat, meaning a warhead that follows a predictable ballistic parabolic path. But Russia's latest generation MIRVs are maneuverable. They do not follow a predictable path. They bob and weave, dipsy-doodle, corkscrew, and that obsoletes the entire US ballistic missile defense doctrine.

Are we in for another nuclear standoff with the Kremlin?

Given the resumption of the cold war with Russia, some variation on the scenario described above is not only entirely possible, it is nearly inevitable. The INF treaty signed by Ronald Reagan is in danger of falling apart at the seams as NATO moves its forces ever closer to the Russian border and the Russians respond in kind. The US-EU coup d’etat in Ukraine, Georgia’s imminent entry into NATO, the “upgrading” of US nuclear weapons in Germany, and the radical uptick in anti-Russian rhetoric by US military and political figures has returned us to a danger we thought ended with the implosion of the Soviet empire: the threat of nuclear war.

Mystery light over ocean was missile test

A mysterious light that streaked across San Diego’s night sky Saturday, visible as far away as Nevada and Arizona, was a Trident missile test-fired by the Navy.

Navy Strategic Systems Programs conducted the scheduled Trident II (D5) missile test flight at sea from the Kentucky, an Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine, in the Pacific Test Range off the coast of Southern California, a Navy spokesman said. ?

A Flashbang Video Production

I started to document protests in Seattle years ago. I've since moved outside the city, so I mostly see them on television and on the internet. It's been too depressing to watch everything disintegrate -- to see the same agitators at every protest -- recognizing every cop's face that I see -- watching everyone do the same failed techniques every time. It is my personal belief that nothing will begin to change until there is a military draft and mass financial ruin -- that is if we don't nuke ourselves.

Pentagon’s Former Russia 'Expert' Proves She Doesn’t Know Much About Russia

“We have to continue reassuring, but we have to do one better, we actually have to deter,” she told reporters at a Defense Writers’ Group breakfast on Wednesday, according to Breaking Defense.

"First of all, clearly, Russia is not the Soviet Union and they are not strong economically and they are brittle politically, but that doesn’t mean they’re not a danger."

According to Farkas, that “danger” refers to modern Russia’s brazen disregard for the horrors of nuclear war.

"In the Cold War…there was a healthy respect for the immense, horrific power of nuclear weapons and that was really the last resort," she said, adding that Russia currently follows a doctrine of "escalate to deescalate," which she finds "highly alarming."

How I Would Reaffirm Unbreakable Bond With Israel — and Benjamin Netanyahu

We have recently marked the 20th anniversary of the assassination of then Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, a good friend, a courageous warrior and a great statesman. This somber anniversary, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Washington on November 9, is an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bonds of friendship and unity between the people and governments of the United
States and Israel.

The alliance between our two nations transcends politics. It is and should always be a commitment that unites us, not a wedge that divides us.

Ever since President Truman waited only 11 minutes to recognize the new nation of Israel in 1948, Americans have believed that Israel is more than a country — it’s a dream nurtured for generations and made real by men and women who refused to bow to the toughest odds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation of this statement by 2016 Presidential Candidate Clinton:

"I will give Netanyahu everything he demands, and everything he wants, even though I understand that under the Symington Amendment, such aid is completely illegal, under American law, because Israel refuses to sign the NNPT, and allow its nuclear sites to be inspected.

I will completely ignore Israeli serial genocide against the Palestinian people, and consistently spew for the expected verbal vomit that "Israel has a right to defend itself" whenever its IDF kills the innocent.

I will completely ignore the reality that Israel is a nuclear-armed nation, with one of the finest standing armies in the world, while I continue to shovel American money and American weapons into it, which means that the 3 billion plus we give to Israel annually will not be available to rebuild American infrastructure, or encourage job growth in the US.

I will also declare war against any country Netanyahu demands me to make war against, because he feels that country is an "existential threat" to Israel.

So it will, again, be American kids who die and get maimed for life because Israel is pathologically, and geopolitically, utterly incapable of getting along with most of its neighbors.

So in conclusion, Israel could never have a more Israeli-centric President than I will be, even if I have to destroy the US to make that happen!!"

And Secretary Clinton, you are welcome for that translation!

You deserve a break today! A broken nose a broken hand.....!

"I was on my way home from Monday night curling league, I hadn't eaten much since lunch time, and I was driving by a McDonald's, so I thought I'd just swing in and pick up a BigMac while I listened to the end of MNF game on the radio.

At first I was annoyed the guy in front of me was taking so long, he seemed pretty upset to begin with, but it looked like when the McDonald's guy handed him his cash and change back he dropped some of the dude's change. That's when he got out of his car, spit on the drive through window and tried to punch the McDonald's and that's when I started recording."

Egypt is Flooding Gaza Border Tunnels With Seawater, Poisoning Water Supply

Egypt has been pumping salt water from the Mediterranean into Gaza's underground tunnels, which Cairo says have been used to smuggle weapons to Islamist insurgents in the Sinai desert.

But more than destroying the tunnels, the flooding is contaminating water supplies and threatening to wreck farmland and spread disease, Palestinian officials say.

"One cubic meter of seawater pollutes 40 cubic meters of underground water," said Tamer al-Sleibi, a water department director in Gaza.

He worries that the water could weaken the foundations of homes and spoil the land for agriculture. Additionally, as the water turns stagnant, mosquitoes and other disease carriers will breed.

MILPLEX: AFTER GIVING MILLIONS TO LAWMAKERS WHO CONTROL PENTAGON SPENDING, NORTHROP AWARDED $21 BILLION BOMBER CONTRACT

Northrop Grumman, one of the nation’s largest defense contractors, turned a million-dollar lobbying investment into a billion-dollar contract bonanza.

The weapons maker last week was announced as the winner of a $21.4 billion contract from the U.S. Air Force to build at least 21 stealth bombers.

The lobbying figure was compiled by the Center for Public Integrity, which examined five years’ worth of expenditures by Northrop Grumman. The investigation revealed the defense contractor contributed $4.6 million to the campaigns of 224 lawmakers since 2010, demonstrating a long-range lobbying strategy devised to win the contract to build Long Range Strike bombers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (absolute absence of) shock at this award.

I wonder what it feels like, as a corporate executive, to actually own Congressional representatives; it must truly be wonderful; the gift that keeps on giving!!

I wonder if these execs have pictures of their purchased Congressional reps at their homes, decorating their walls, like pictures of a prized pet.

But I will make a fearless set of predictions about these stealth bombers; they will be late, in terms of actual deployment; they will have staggering cost overruns; and they will not perform in the field as advertised.

But these are precisely the outcomes which can be expected of bought politicians who no longer represent the true cares and concerns of constituents they allegedly represent, but only those goals of the corporations which, overtly and covertly, fund their election cycles.

“There are also other problems, such as the production of military-oriented biological weapons and the very large funding allocated to this,” Patrushev added.

US forces who obey these illegal orders are giving aid and comfort to the enemies of America! Treason doth prosper when none dare call it treason. This is TREASON most foul!

Washington is desperate to find ways of countering Russia’s effective Middle East agenda - combining formidable military might against terrorism with trustworthy diplomacy, proving Moscow is a valued partner, polar opposite Washington, a rogue bully.

Obama’s pledge about no “American combat troops fighting on foreign soil” proved another of his many Big Lies.
US Special Forces will be deployed to northern areas - illegally without Damascus or Security Council authorization.

Unannounced greater numbers may join them. Their mission: aiding ISIS and other takfiri terrorists, putting them in harm’s way.

It appears that Washington, ever a seething cauldron of bright ideas, is looking for a shooting war with China, or perhaps trying to make the Chinese kowtow and back down, the pretext being some rocks in the Pacific in which the United States cannot possibly have a vital national interest.

Years back I went aboard the USS Vincennes, CG-49, a Tico class Aegis boat, then the leading edge of naval technology.

The Navy has not been in a war for seventy years. It has sat off various shores and launched aircraft, but the fleet has not been engaged. Over decades of inaction, complacency sets in. Unfortunately, wars regularly turn out to be otherwise than expected. Further, the American military’s standard approach to a war is to underestimate the enemy (there is probably a manual on this).

Washington’s South China Sea provocation and the spectre of World War III

WWIII! This ought to take their minds off Satanic, hyper-inflated, homeless, jobless, fracked and oil-soaked, Fukushima irradiated police state we foisted on them via the 9/11 and London 7/7 false-flag attacks!

Netanyahu: I don't want a binational state, but we need to control all of the territory for the foreseeable future

This guy is completely 110% nutzs!You forgot the last part. Die by the sword not live forever by the sword!
The Israelis are killing each other and their political leadership has lost it!
The zios are killing Israel one Palestinian at a time!

Netanyahu then turned to opposition MKs and said: "You think there is a magic wand here, but I disagree. I'm asked if we will forever live by the sword — yes."

Oct 24 21:16

Wait, Netanyahu said what?

So, basically, it seems that Bibi made the whole thing up. And while making outrageous claims is something we have come to expect from him, this brings it all to a whole new (low) level. It’s evidence of a borderline psychotic disorder. Maybe not so borderline.

Secrets of the Syrian War: October 2015

The greatest secrets: the West has no people on the ground in Syria to take over the liberated territories; the Russians still seek partnership, Erdogan has bitten more than he can chew, and ISIS is a phantom, after all.

Russians are enjoying their Syrian adventure. Twenty days after its start, their entry into the Syrian war has paid off and brought some dividends.

Putin has been very popular before the war, with 86% support in the ratings, and now his public support has gone through the roof.

The tide is turning against Zionist extremism

These changing perceptions are the result of the rise of alternative forms of media, which have broken through the mainstream media’s imbalanced and inaccurate portrayal of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

For decades, the one issue that has been the exception to the broadly progressive streak within American Judaism has been Israel. The Jewish state has received unchallenged support by most Jews despite its decades-long occupation of the West Bank and the pursuit of policies toward Palestinians that, were they practiced by any other country, would be overwhelmingly opposed by American Jews.

Netanyahu absolved Hitler of the final solution by placing the blame for the Holocaust on the Palestinians

Why is Netanyahu consistently attempting to displace blame for the Jewish genocide in Europe from the Germans onto the Palestinians? Of course, Netanyahu throughout his career has been determined to shatter the Palestinian national struggle. To discredit it, and to justify his campaign, his violent campaign against it. But with what’s happening in Jerusalem Netanyahu’s fanaticism has risen to the surface.

Turkish MP: Ankara Supplied Terrorists in Syria with Sarin Gas

"The terrorist groups in Syria have received Sarin gas from Ankara," member of the Republican People's Party (CHP) Barish Arkadash said on Tuesday.

He pointed to the investigations by the UN in Syria proving that ISIL has Sarin Gas, and said, "We will also prove soon that the ISIL has received the (poisonous) gas from Turkey and we will also prove that some sections of the Turkish government and maybe some special private companies have been involved in this big crime."

Arkadash also called on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to resign from his post as soon as it is proven that Ankara has supplied the terrorists in Syria with deadly Sarin gas.

How Neocons Destabilized Europe

Exclusive: The neocon prescription of endless “regime change” is spreading chaos across the Middle East and now into Europe, yet the neocons still control the mainstream U.S. narrative and thus have diagnosed the problem as not enough “regime change,” as Robert Parry reports.

The refugee chaos that is now pushing deep into Europe – dramatized by gut-wrenching photos of Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi whose body washed up on a beach in Turkey – started with the cavalier ambitions of American neocons and their liberal-interventionist sidekicks who planned to remake the Middle East and other parts of the world through “regime change.”

Instead of the promised wonders of “democracy promotion” and “human rights,” what these “anti-realists” have accomplished is to spread death, destruction and destabilization across the Middle East and parts of Africa and now into Ukraine and the heart of Europe. Yet, since these neocon forces still control the Official Narrative, their explanations get top billing – such as that there hasn’t been enough “regime change.”

NATO BLIND: Top Secret Russian Air Defence System Deployed in Syria

You are only as good as those you fight. The US military is great for gunning down innocent men,women and children all over the planet for their corporate and neocon masters.
They are absolutely no good for defending the USA from attack and are at this moment training to attack the American people. And they have now been caught not only giving aid and comfort to America's enemies,they the Pentagram creates Americas enemies out of whole cloth! Shameful!

Thierry Meyssan, a French journalist who has been based in Damascus for some years now, is reporting that Russia has deployed its most advanced, top secret air defence system in Syria, which has essentially “left NATO blind.”

While the West has been completely embarrassed by Russia’s swift and effective operation in Syria, it has now been utterly outclassed; so greatly that, as we shall hear below, even NATO Commanders are ‘worried’.

Palomares nuclear crash: US agrees Spanish coast clean-up

Almost 50 years after four nuclear bombs fell on the Spanish coast after two US military planes collided, American officials have signed a deal to clean up contaminated land.

None of the bombs detonated in January 1966, but three fell around Palomares and a fourth was found on the sea bed.

Highly toxic plutonium was spread over a 200-hectare (490-acre) area.

On a visit to Madrid, Secretary of State John Kerry agreed to finalise a deal on disposing of contaminated soil.

Russia's Syrian Operation to Smash Terrorists, End Tyranny of Banking Elite

Russia's involvement in Syria actually means the decline of the US-led 'new world order' declared by George H.W. Bush in 1990, F. William Engdahl believes."

The Russian intervention has exposed the fraud of the US' position in the Middle East and shown the world that Washington lies, that she supports the very terrorists who allegedly were behind the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York and at the Pentagon," Engdahl pointed out in his article for New Eastern Outlook.

According to the historian Russia is about to put an end to the US-led "new world order" proclaimed by triumphalist President George H.W. Bush on September 11, 1990.

Russia’s Awesome Responsibility

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only people in the world who do not know Israel has nuclear weapons are the American people who ironically enough paid for it all, thanks to the pro-Israel US corporate media!

A Very Heavy Agenda Part 1 : A Catalyzing Event [Trailer] (Neocons exposed)

Post-9/11, the War on Terror had outlived its usefulness.
The minds behind the think tanks that drive America’s interventionist foreign policy decided that the U.S. needed a new enemy, so they chose an old one -- Russia.

Part 1: A Catalyzing Event 1hr 25mins

Cheney, Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld were ubiquitous in the news media as they took every available opportunity to market to America an aggressive preemptive war policy. But from where did their ideas originate? The answer is a tightly knit and eminently well placed group of neoconservative thought leaders, chief among them Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan. Part 1 begins in the panicked weeks after 9/11, as Kagan et al. seized upon the hysteria surrounding the anthrax letter attacks to further shape America’s perception of reality, planting the seeds for endless future military engagements. George W. Bush may have been understandably perceived as an idiot, but watching these wonks and academics drive the ideological engine for his administration belies a much more sophisticated strategy at play.

Why US fears Putin success in Syria

Russia is conducting operations that are lawful under international law with the full consent of the Syrian government – unlike the US-led coalition which is bombing the country illegally.

Last week, US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter darkly predicted that Russia would suffer blowback from its intervention in Syria with acts of terrorism being committed on “Russian soil.”

Israel one of the sponsors of JFK assassination: American scholar

Israel had a motive to kill Kennedy because the president was opposed to the regime's nuclear weapons program at Dimona which he believed could instigate a nuclear arms-race in the Middle East.

Kennedy encountered tensions with the Israelis regarding the production of nuclear materials in Dimona.

Israel resisted pressure by the Kennedy administration to open its nuclear facilities to International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspections and misled American scientists who visited Dimona in 1962.

HDP co-leader slams Erdogan, gov't for attack that claimed 95 lives

“We have lost almost 150 of our people before and after the elections,” he said in Ankara, referring to the June 7 elections that failed to produce a one-party or coalition government but brought the HDP to the parliament as a party group as it surpassed the 10 percent election threshold. “There is nobody who has been designated as ‘responsible’ around.

There is no effective investigation. There will be none regarding today's attack either. This is not an attack against unity of our state and nation.

This is an attack by our nation against our people," he said.

According to official figures, 95 people were killed at the attack at the start of a peace rally in the Turkish capital, as dozens remained in

The Six Most Disastrous Interventions of the 21st Century

by Gary Leupp
On October 2 President Barack Obama, alluding to Russia’s decision to launch air strikes in Syria, told reporters at the White House that for Russia to view the forces targeted “from the perspective they’re all terrorists [is] a recipe for disaster, and it’s one that I reject.”

1 Afghanistan

The first was the disaster of the invasion of Afghanistan beginning in October 2001. I’m not sure we should call it a “crime,” since the international coalition that invaded was authorized by a UN resolution, or a “mistake” since it was clearly the result of calculation.

The Mind of Mr. Putin

Perhaps it is time to climb down off our ideological high horse and start respecting the vital interests of other sovereign nations, even as we protect and defend our own.

If America’s elites continue to assert their right to intervene in the internal affairs of nations, to make them conform to a U.S. ideal of what is a good society and legitimate government, then we are headed for endless conflict. And, one day, this will inevitably result in war, as more and more nations resist America’s moral imperialism.

Nations have a right to be themselves, Putin is saying.
