Secretary of Defense James Mattis’s Iraq “War Crimes”

March 1, 2017

Retired Marine General James Mattis, a man who has served over forty years in the Marine Corps, was sworn in as the US Secretary of Defense in January 2017. Before his confirmation, he was under public scrutiny—for instance, for his controversial comments on “political Islam” at the Heritage Foundation in 2015—but, Dahr Jamail reports, the bigger concern is that Mattis “is clearly responsible for carrying out and/or aiding and abetting in several war crimes.”

The November 2005 Haditha massacre was well documented and received international attention, even if Mattis’s role in it has been largely forgotten. After a roadside bomb attack on a Marine convoy, a group of American soldiers rounded up 24 unarmed Iraqi civilians—including women, children, and elderly people—and shot them numerous times at close range. When the Marines were brought to trial, Mattis was the authority that dismissed the charges against them.

Egypt’s Coptic Christians once again find themselves under attack from radical Islamists.

Today, at least 26 were killed and over 26 were injured when terrorists shot at Christians on a pilgrimage to the Anba Samuel Monastery near the city of Minya.

Between 8 and 10 heavily armed terrorists surrounded the bus in trucks before opening fire and slaughtering the unarmed Christian martyrs.

S. Korea OKs civilian contact with North Korea over malaria

South Korea will allow a civic group to contact North Korea over help in fighting malaria, the first government approval on cross-border civilian exchanges since North Korea's fourth nuclear test in January 2016, officials said Friday.

The announcement is a sign that the liberal government led by new President Moon Jae-in is trying to restart stalled civilian aid and exchange programs as a way to improve strained ties with the rival North. Moon's conservative predecessor, Park Geun-hye, hadn't endorsed any civilian contacts since the North's fourth nuclear test.

Seoul's Unification Ministry said the Seoul-based Korean Sharing Movement would be allowed to communicate with North Korea to discuss how to deal with malaria in North Korea.

USMC Veteran Facing Life In Prison Over 1 Oz. Of Cannabis To Treat His PTSD

Unfortunately indicative of the government’s misplaced, draconian priorities, the continued federal prohibition of cannabis has created tragic and heartbreaking consequences for vets using the plant to treat PTSD — and Lewandowski is a living example of the State’s tyranny.

After realizing that the meds were killing his liver, Lewandowski decided that it would be a good idea try marijuana as a treatment. He began growing 6 plants for his personal use.

In June of 2014, Lewandowski had a PTSD episode. His wife grabbed the kids and took them to the neighbor’s house where she called the police to get her husband some help.

However, as is the case in so many countless other incidents, police did anything but help.

Controversial Reddit Rival Voat May Be Shutting Down Because of Money Problems

Voat was designed as a substitute for Reddit: At time when Reddit is getting criticized for scrubbing “problematic” comments and conversations, Voat was supposed to a freer-speech alternative.

But now it may be shutting down because of financial difficulties. The site racked up $6,600 in hosting costs in April. Donations, advertisements and merchandise “only put a dent” in the costs, and the company doesn’t feel comfortable running a donation campaign to help. Voat has been unable to secure outside funding and struggles with accepting donations after PayPal cut it off for hosting “obscene” content.

In a throwback to the ’90s, NTFS bug lets anyone hang or crash Windows 7, 8.1

Those of you with long memories might remember one of the more amusing (or perhaps annoying) bugs of the Windows 95 and 98 era: certain specially crafted filenames could make the operating system crash. Malicious users could use this to attack other people's machines by using one of the special filenames as an image source; the browser would try to access the bad file, and Windows would promptly fall over.

It turns out that Windows 7 and 8.1 (and Windows Vista, but that's out of support anyway) have a similar kind of bug. They can be taken advantage of in the same kind of way: certain bad filenames make the system lock up or occasionally crash with a blue screen of death, and malicious webpages can embed those filenames by using them as image sources. If you visit such a page (in any browser), your PC will hang shortly after and possibly crash outright.

UK Government Using Manchester Attacks As An Excuse To Kill Encryption

Again, in case you're just joining us, requiring that internet companies "break their own security so that messages can be read by intelligence agencies" is the nice way of saying "kill real encryption." It means that these companies will be deliberately forced to leave vulnerabilities in encryption that will be a goldmine for hackers of all kinds, from foreign surveillance to online criminals.

And, so far, there is zero evidence that the Manchester attack had anything to do with encryption. And, even if it did, so what? If the UK forced companies to break encryption, people planning terrorist attacks would just switch to other encryption products that don't have corporate entities in the UK. Or they'd come up with other ways to communicate. It will do basically nothing to stop terrorist attacks, but will instead make it much, much easier for all sorts of people with nefarious intent to hack into the private communications of everyone.

All Android Phones Vulnerable to Extremely Dangerous Full Device Takeover Attack

Researchers have discovered a new attack, dubbed 'Cloak and Dagger', that works against all versions of Android, up to version 7.1.2.

Cloak and Dagger attack allows hackers to silently take full control of your device and steal private data, including keystrokes, chats, device PIN, online account passwords, OTP passcode, and contacts.

The attack doesn't exploit any vulnerability in Android ecosystem; instead, it abuses a pair of legitimate app permissions that is being widely used in popular applications to access certain features on an Android device.

Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology have discovered this attack, who successfully performed it on 20 people and none of them were able to detect any malicious activity.

Eugene Kaspersky hits back at US cyber espionage claims

Russian cybersecurity expert Eugene Kaspersky has offered to hand over his global company’s code to US authorities as he fights to clear his company of claims of cyber espionage.

Several US authorities reportedly have stopped using Kaspersky Lab security software whose use is under review following claims that Russia could use coding “backdoors” to spy on US agencies.

Mr Kaspersky says no one has offered any evidence to support the claim which was totally unfounded. He has offered to testify in the US and says he is willing to hand over code to authorities so that his software can be scrutinised.

Major ISPs accused of deliberately throttling traffic

Five major internet service providers in the US and one in Europe have been accused of abusing their market share to interfere with the flow of the internet for end users. The accusations come from Level 3, a communications company that helps connect large-scale ISPs like Comcast or AT&T to the rest of the internet. According to the company, these six unnamed ISPs are deliberately degrading the quality of internet services using the Level 3 network, in an attempt to get Level 3 to pay them a fee for additional traffic caused by services like Netflix, a process known as paid peering.

Orwellian audio editing breakthrough allows your audio recordings to be edited like text to insert words you never said

New technology produced by computer scientists at Princeton University will have the ability to add words into a voice recording by editing the transcript of the recording. So let’s say you record the sentence “I like to drink coffee early in morning,” leaving out the word “the” between “in” and “morning.” The software, officially called VoCo, would automatically synthesize your voice and add the word “the” in the sentence, so that the recording never misses a beat.

“VoCo provides a peek at a very practical technology for editing audio tracks, but it is also a harbinger for future technologies that will allow the human voice to be synthesized and automated in remarkable ways,” explained Adam Finkelstein, a professor of computer science at Princeton.

Bitcoin plummets nearly $400 just HOURS after Health Ranger warned of “catastrophic correction”

File this under the “I told you so” category: Earlier today, I posted a detailed mathematical analysis and warning that spoke of a “catastrophic collapse” that will occur in Bitcoin. I was immediately called an “idiot” by Bitcoin cultists who have become delusional in their faith that Bitcoin can only go up forever. Yet in less than two hours, Bitcoin crashed by almost $400, plummeting from almost $2750 to nearly $2350.

Meanwhile, Coinbase has become a total joke, seizing up private accounts and denying people access to their Bitcoins for days on end (possibly WEEKS, for all we know). The blockchain is being overrun with unprecedented trading volume, and the confirmation transaction premium keeps rising. It now costs an average of nearly $17 just to send any amount of Bitcoin to anyone, and many transactions are taking DAYS to get confirmed. In a panic selloff, it will easily cost you $100 just to sell any amount of Bitcoin.

Pentagon shifts blame to ISIS for 100+ civilians killed during US airstrike in Mosul

More than 100 civilians were killed when a US airstrike in Iraq triggered secondary explosions in March, according to a Pentagon investigation. Washington says Iraq requested the strike after Islamic State fighters began shooting at Iraqi forces.

The probe found that the March 17 airstrike on a building in Mosul's al-Jadida neighborhood triggered secondary explosions from devices planted by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) fighters.

Those secondary blasts, according to the military, caused the concrete building to collapse, leading to more than 100 civilian casualties, which likely represents the largest single incident of civilian deaths since the US air campaign against IS began in 2014.

Groundbreaking discovery of early human life in ancient Peru

An archeologist from Florida Atlantic University's Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute is among a team of scientists who made a groundbreaking discovery in Huaca Prieta in coastal Peru—home to one of the earliest and largest pyramids in South America. Hundreds of thousands of artifacts, including intricate and elaborate hand-woven baskets excavated between 2007 and 2013 in Huaca Prieta, reveal that early humans in that region were a lot more advanced than originally thought and had very complex social networks.

Some two thousand and five hundred years ago one of my favorite strategic analysts, a Chinese general and Imperial Adviser, Sun Tzu, wrote his tiny but historic text, The Art of War. It’s used today as essential reading all over the world, including by students at the US West Point military academy, the incubator for America’s future generals. In his treatise Sun Tzu describes five essential qualities needed in a successful leader, in his case, a successful general.

The qualities apply to anyone in a position of leadership responsibility. The problem is not Donald Trump. The problem is that we, American citizens, blinded ourselves by wishful thinking that finally someone would stand up and 2make America great again.”

US ‘Non-Combat’ Troops in Firing Range of ISIS Fighters in Iraq

The ever-growing number of US special forces engaging in direct combat notwithstanding, the Pentagon is ever determined to portray their thousands of normal troops that are deployed in Iraq, are purely “non-combat” in nature, and that they are engaged in advisory and training operations.

Which has never really been true, and is getting increasing less true all the time, as ground troops continue to get closer and closer to direct combat operations, and are now is Mosul, firing mortars at ISIS fighters who can be no more than a mile and a half away.

It’s difficult to reckon exactly what “in combat” means anymore, since the Pentagon is forever trying to define combat-seeming exercises as something short of that. Still, firing mortars certainly isn’t a “training exercise,” and if they are within firing range of ISIS, ISIS is within firing range of them

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prediction; no matter how the Pentagon characterises this, and other, deployments to Iraq, the US military is most probably never leaving completely.

Brazil's Temer Deploys Army as Protesters Battle Police

- Protesters demanding the resignation of Brazilian President Michel Temer staged running battles with police and set fire to a ministry building in Brasilia on Wednesday, prompting the scandal-hit leader to order the army onto the streets.

Police unleashed volleys of tear gas, stun grenades and rubber bullets to halt tens of thousands of protesters as they marched towards Congress to call for Temer's ouster and an end to his austerity program.

Masked protesters fired powerful fireworks at police, set ablaze furniture in the Agriculture Ministry, and sprayed anti-Temer graffiti on government buildings.

It was the most violent protest in Brasilia since anti-government demonstrations in 2013 and fueled a political crisis sparked by allegations Temer condoned paying off a potential witness in a massive corruption probe.

The scandal has raised chances Brazil could see a second president fall in less than a year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't see this ending well for President Temer, particularly if he has called out the Brazilian Army against the demonstrators.

I hope and pray that there can be a peaceful resolution of these issues, with Temer making the choice to step down, but I don't see this coming.

The big question here is, how long is the Army going to stay loyal to the existing government?!?

Iranian Drones Circling Above US Aircraft Carrier 'Getting on Pentagon's Nerves'

Iranian unmanned aerial vehicles are said to have become a fixture in the skies above the USS George H.W. Bush deployed to the Persian Gulf to take part in Washington's anti-Daesh efforts in the Middle East, political analyst Ilya Plekhanov wrote for Sputnik, adding that these surveillance missions have gotten on the Pentagon's nerves.

"Americans use this aircraft carrier to carry out airstrikes against Daesh targets in Iraq and Syria. Iranians use their drones to observe these operations, irritating US troops who are unable to do anything about it since they are in international waters," the analyst said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I certainly hope that no Naval commander in the Persian Gulf is going to go "all cowboy" on these Iranian drone deployments, and decide he's going to shoot them out of the sky "to teach those danged Iranians a lesson", despite the reality that the ships are sailing in international waters.

That huge weapons deal which President Trump has just inked with Saudi Arabia, coupled with the increase in funds for US defensive (and in their case, offensive) weapons capabilities to Israel, should be giving giving the Iranian government pause right now, in terms of defending itself from a proxy US/Saudi/Israeli attack against it, and just what Russia is prepared to do to prevent this from being successful, if such a thing actually happens.

If I were Iranian President Rouhani right now, I would be picking up a hot line to Russia's President Putin, and having a serious conversation about this possibility.

US grants Israel extra defence aid: Netanyahu

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Washington has added tens of millions of dollars in extra defence aid for Israel, a day after US President Donald Trump wound up a visit.

He did not say over what timeframe the money would be disbursed. The addition comes on the heels of a weekend announcement of a massive US-Saudi arms deal.

Under a 2016 agreement, Washington already bankrolls Israel's military spending to the tune of $3.8 billion dollars annually over 10 years, making the Jewish state the top recipient of US assistance.

He did not elaborate.

Israel relies heavily on US military aid. Its total defence budget amounts to some $16 billion, excluding US assistance.
