THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake, We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power... We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power." -- from George Orwell's 1949 novel "1984"

Retired FBI Special Agent Blows the Whistle on the Real Robert Mueller

Shortly after former FBI Director Robert Mueller was announced as the special counsel for the Russia investigation, the screeching hordes of America’s “always wrong about everything” punditry class cheered in near unison, lauding the man as some sort of second coming. This sort of thing should always be seen as a red flag, and thanks to an excellent article written by retired FBI special agent Coleen Rowley, everyone can now know exactly why.

China vigilant as US bombers fly over South China Sea

China said on Friday it was monitoring US military activities in the South China Sea after two US bombers conducted training flights over the disputed waters.

The US Pacific Command said on its website two American Air Force B-1B Lancer bombers flew a 10-hour training mission from Guam over the South China Sea on Thursday, in conjunction with the Navy's USS Sterett guided-missile destroyer.

The exercise comes after a US warship in late May carried out a "manoeuvring drill" within 12 nautical miles of an artificial island built up by China in the South China Sea.

The tests revealed that, although Heinz boasts over 60% tomato as an ingredient, there was only 21% tomato concentrate in each bottle.

The IRS Can Seize Your Money Based on a Hunch. This Bill Will Bring That to an End.

The IRS, not content with expropriating the wealth of its citizens on April 15 every year, has now taken up the practice of seizing funds that have been involved in perfectly legal transactions on the basis of a hunch.

Thankfully, legislation in the House and the Senate has been introduced to bring this practice to a halt. Both chambers should act on the bills swiftly.

urrent law circumvents ancient concepts like due process and innocence until guilt is proven. The federal government then places the burden of reclaiming the assets on the citizen it targeted.

This situation threatens the liberty of American citizens.

The Treasury’s inspector general for tax administration conducted a review of this practice and concluded in a March 30 report that the IRS “criminal investigators mainly pursued law-abiding citizens and businesses when seizing assets in civil forfeiture cases because they were easier to go after.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet that this legislation will, in fact, come to pass, as attractive and reasonable as this legislation sounds.

The IRS has become a Frankenstinian, out of control monster, and the 16th Amendment to the Constitution, upon which this was founded, was never legally ratified.

Mall Tenants Seek Shorter Leases As America's Relics Of The 80's Teeter On The Brink

As if things weren't bad enough for America's mall owners, what with the having to filling their retail space with high schools, grocers and churches, it seems that retailers have grown so uncertain about the future of these 1980s relics that they're only willing to sign 1-2 [year] leases these days.

As Bloomberg points out this morning, leases renewals used to be 5-10 years in length but are increasingly only being signed with 1-2 year terms. Meanwhile, thousands of stores are closing each year and it's only expected to get worse over time.

Daniel Richman confirmed by e-mail to several reporters that he was the “good friend” and law-school prof who Comey slipped the documents — then hightailed it out of his tony Brooklyn Heights home and refused to answer any more questions.

The vast, arid zone has in recent years become a breeding ground for jihadist groups - some linked to al Qaeda and Islamic State - that European nations, particularly France, fear could menace Europe if left unchecked.

WHY IS ISIS ATTACKING THE PHILIPPINES?

As ISIS moves across the world, conveniently popping up wherever America wants to touch down, the fact that the terrorist organization is an American creation is becoming more and more obvious to many people. Regardless, the news that ISIS recently managed not only to conduct terror attacks in the Philippines but was able to seize and occupy an entire city caught many people by surprise. Indeed, for those who are unaware of the nature and history of the terrorist organization and what role American imperialism plays in regards to its activity, the recent events in the Philippines no doubt have many Americans absolutely befuddled.

As the Independent article “ISIS-Linked Militants Behead Police Chief And Take Priest And Churchgoers Hostage In Philippines City,” reported on May 24,

A Catholic priest and churchgoers have been taken hostage by Isis-linked militants attempting to seize control of a city in the Philippines, while the local police chief has been beheaded.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Duterte could not be "controlled" by the US and the West; therefore, he is being "made to pay the price" for his independence.

Armenia sends 40 tons of humanitarian aid to Syrian people

Armenian Orthodox Diocese of Damascus received on Friday a new batch of aid, including 40 tons of relief and food items, provided by the Armenian people and government to the Syrian people.

In a statement to SANA, Armenian Ambassador in Damascus Arshak Poladian said that the aid “came under the directives of the President of the Republic of Armenia and presented by the Armenian people,” noting that this batch is the third in 2017.

He added that the aid includes food and other essential supplies, pointing out that every time at least 40 tons of aid is sent and that during the past two days quantities of aid arrived and have also been distributed to various Syrian provinces.

WHY HAS THE GCC AND EGYPT TURNED ON QATAR?

It is important to note which countries in the anti-Syria coalition are not part of the anti-Qatar coalition, specifically Turkey. The one thing Turkey and Qatar have in common besides funding and facilitating terrorists for the purpose of overthrowing the Syrian government, is support for the Muslim Brotherhood. After all, Turkey’s Erdogan has long supported the MB and has maintained close ties with them for years. Turkey is also currently debating the possibility of deploying Turkish troops to a base in Qatar.

So what we are seeing is, in part, an anti-Muslim Brotherhood coalition with the focus being placed on Qatar, the country which is seen as being perhaps the biggest patron of the organization.

The Iranian Element

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All of these elements, taken together, appear to be leading toward an ultimate Saudi proxy war against Iran, supported by the US and Israel, which will, almost inevitably, lead to a war against Russia, whose military and political class have, very publicly, stated that any attack on Iran will have Russia come to defend it, militarily.

And I very frankly think that we are looking at a question of "when", rather than "if".

The current regimes in DC, Tel Aviv, and Riyadh want to see the current regime in Tehran crushed, and by any means necessary, in order to install a western-centric puppet, as the US military and intelligence agencies did in 1953, and renew the curse of private central banking in this country.

President Rouhani, the Iranian Parliament, and the Iranian military, have every reason to be concerned about this demonisation of Qatar, and where it might be leading, geopolitically and militarily.

Was he asked to drop the investigation? No. Was he told to drop the investigation? No. Was he ordered to drop the investigation? Again and again… no. And did he, after all the inferences and “hopes” allegedly expressed by the President of the United States, actually wind up dropping the investigation? Nope.

Neil White, 47, was charged with second-degree murder in the death of his daughter Gabrielle.

Finnish nationalists pick hardliner in blow to coalition

Finland's eurosceptic Finns party, which is part of the ruling coalition, elected an anti-immigration hardliner as chairman on Saturday in a move that analysts said might lead to a break-up of the three-party government.

At a Finns party congress, 56 percent of its members voted in favor of European Parliament member Jussi Halla-aho while 37 percent backed the more moderate Sampo Terho.

Halla-aho, who wants Finland to leave the European Union, has said he would push his center-right coalition partners to tighten immigration policies, and would not stick to the three-party government at any cost.

He said this would enable Qatar to import all the goods it needed.

Judge in Bundy Ranch Case Wants Defendants In Chains For Trial

In the case of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA VS. Cliven Bundy et al, Judge Gloria Navarro has demanded the defendants all wear chains throughout their trials. The simple question is, why? These are men who have demonstrated they are not violent nor have they attempted to escape from the prison system they have been incarcerated in for almost a year and a half.

In a response to the order by Judge Navarro, attorney for Pete Santilli, Chris Rasmussen, cited the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in May 2017 to bolster the claim that his client's rights are being violated, as are all the other defendants in the case.

Human rights groups say US-led coalition used white phosphorous in populated areas of Iraq, Syria

The U.S.-led coalition in Iraq and Syria appears to have used white phosphorous-loaded munitions on at least two occasions in densely populated areas of Mosul and in the Islamic State's de facto capital of Raqqa, according to videos posted online and human rights groups.

The often-controversial munitions are common in western militaries and are used primarily to create smoke screens, though they can also be dropped as an incendiary weapon. When a white phosphorous shell explodes, the chemical inside reacts with the air, creating a thick white cloud. When it comes in contact with flesh, it can maim and kill by burning to the bone.

This statement follows North Korea’s claim that it has tested a new type of missile that could strike South Korean and US warships "at will" if attacked.

Four missiles were fired Thursday that traveled 125 miles before landing in the sea off North Korea’s east coast, according to South Korea national security head Chung Eui-yong.

President Trump Demands Qatar Stop Funding Terrorists

"Stop funding, stop teaching hate, and stop the killing," US President Donald Trump said Friday during a news conference with the Romanian president after alleging that Doha has propped up Islamist extremists.

"No more funding," Trump emphasized. His comments come following the diplomatic row that erupted last week between Qatar and major Middle East powers like Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

Mattis Aware of Steps Planned to Isolate Qatar - Pentagon
The "high level" of support — whether it be financial, logistical or moral — for terror groups originating in Doha must stop, the president said.

"I want to call on all of the nations to stop immediately supporting terrorism," Trump reiterated.

It is painfully obvious that Tillerson's remarks earlier today were simply for American public consumption, as though the US government had absolutely nothing to do with greenlighting this coming war.

Twitter “Verifies” Man Who Claims to Be Bill Clinton’s Illegitimate Son (Video)

Knowing the proclivities of ‘Slick Willy’, we wouldn’t put it past him to have one or several illegitimate children.

In the following video, Right Wing News muses as to whether or not Williams could really be Clinton’s son, and the implications if so. Williams has been openly campaigning for Clinton to provide a DNA sample, even telling Hillary “I heard Hillary say she spent her life helping children … If black lives truly matter to her, why not mine?” Of course, considering that Hillary has turned a blind eye to her husband’s many indiscretions for the sake of power, why should this be any different?

US-led coalition interferes in Syrian govt’s fight against terrorism – Russian MoD

The air forces of the US-led coalition are working to undermine the anti-terrorist efforts of the Syrian government, Colonel General Sergey Surovikin of the Russian ground forces has said.

“Despite promoting the aim of fighting international terrorism, the coalition is striking the Syrian military, allowing IS militants to leave encircled areas unhindered, thus strengthening the terrorist groupings near Palmyra and Deir ez-Zor,” Surovikin said.

“The coalition air forces and the strongholds of the forces of New Syrian Army [now known as the Revolutionary Commando Army] have blocked the way of the government forces, tasked with defeating IS [Islamic State] groups,” he said at a briefing on Friday.“This is a violation of the sovereign right of Syria to protect it borders,” he said.

Twitter users have reacted with surprise and fury over excerpts from Hillary Clinton’s 1996 book It Takes A Village. On June 6, Jeanette Jing, an activist with over 33,000 followers on Twitter who supports Clinton’s Democratic opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders, shared two pages of the work in which Clinton reminisces about the black prisoners who worked in the Arkansas governor’s mansion she shared with her husband, Bill Clinton, who led the state from 1979 to 1981 and 1983 to 1992.

Catalonia To Hold Referendum In October On Leaving Spain

Catalonia will hold a referendum on October 1 on whether to leave Spain, the head of the region announced Friday.

"The question will be: 'Do you want Catalonia to become an independent state in the form of a republic'," said Carles Puigdemont, the head of the regional government, Reuters reports.

But the Spanish government said the vote will not happen.

"That referendum will not take place because it is illegal," government spokesman Inigo Mendez de Vigo told a news conference, according to Reuters. "This is just another strategic step that doesn't lead anywhere."

Exclusive: Trump targets illegal immigrants who were given reprieves from deportation by Obama

In September 2014, Gilberto Velasquez, a 38-year-old house painter from El Salvador, received life-changing news: The U.S. government had decided to shelve its deportation action against him.

The move was part of a policy change initiated by then-President Barack Obama in 2011 to pull back from deporting immigrants who had formed deep ties in the United States and whom the government considered no threat to public safety. Instead, the administration would prioritize illegal immigrants who had committed serious crimes.

“Hacking attacks, which are carried out from the US territory, are recorded daily, including attacks targeting the website of the Russian President,” Peskov told journalists on Thursday, adding that similar attacks “come from the territories of many countries around the world.”

Tillerson Tells Arab States To Lift Qatar Blockade: "It's Hindering The Campaign Against ISIS"

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on the Saudi Arabia-led coalition, which includes UAE, Bahrain and Egypt and others, to lift its blockade of Qatar, saying that the cutoff is hindering the fight against the (Qatar-funded) Islamic State. Tillerson also said the blockade had led to food shortages and forced families to uproot themselves and pull their children from school.

“We believe there are unintended consequences, especially during this holy month of Ramadan but they can be addressed immediately,” Tillerson said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I applaud President Trump's Tillerson's approach to attempting to resolve this issue; and yes, it is horrifically awkward, because the US government has alliances on both sides of the issue, and Qatar hosts about 11,000 US service members.

But that being said, I am concerned that Tillerson doesn't know with whom he is dealing, between the Royal House of Saud, the Saudi government, and Saudi military. The concept of "face" is critically important in the Middle East, and unless he and President Trump can figure out a way to get the Saudis to back down without appearing to have "lost face" on this issue.

And after his visit to Saudi Arabia, Trump may have just given the Saudis the indication that they had a "green light" to go ahead with this blockade; if so, that has got to be undone, and quickly.

US “Jihadi Express”: Indonesia – Afghanistan – Syria – Philippines

For quite some time, professor Iman Soleh and I discussed the link between the ‘old guard’ Southeast Asian (mainly Indonesians and Malaysians) jihadi cadres, so-called ‘Afghan alumni’, and the vanguard, a ‘new wave’, that which is now trying to destabilize, even destroy both Syria and the Philippines.

While the name ‘jihad’ itself has been used habitually and ‘liberally’ all over the Western mainstream media, it was clear to all of us at the table that behind the brutal combat as well as most of the horrors unleashed in such places like Syria and Philippines, hidden are the geopolitical interests of the West in general and of the United States in particular.

Professor Soleh has explained the latest ‘dynamics’:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You have to take a look at the "big picture", to see how the use of radical religious jihadis has been central to the US government's attempts at destabilisation around the world, to regime change governments to its liking, and make certain that the resources of those countries are only sold in American dollars.

Kim Jong-un Isn’t Crazy and China Doesn’t Have a Solution

No one who pays attention to the Korean Peninsula believes that there is an easy answer to the challenge of a nuclear North Korea. But finding solutions will become even harder if the problem is misdiagnosed.
The North’s leaders, starting with founder Kim Il-sung, appear to be eminently rational. His son, Kim Jong-il, wore platform shoes, had bouffant hair, donned oversized sunglasses and was particularly easy to caricature (think “Team America”). Nevertheless, Kim Il-sung, Kim Jong-il and descendent Kim Jong-un have skillfully wielded power, maintained control, deterred the United States and turned their small country into a Weltmacht of sorts.

The human cost has been great, but that’s no different than in the Soviet Union and People’s Republic of China. In those countries equally ruthless parties and leaders took control and made nations. The North’s political system is sui generis, but its participants act in an understandable and predictable fashion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wish Rex Tillerson would drop the position of "no negotiation until North Korea's denuclearisation."

IF the US, China, and South Korea came together with North Korea to hammer out a peace deal with which to replace the existing armistice, with the guarantee for peaceful, unrestrained trade in exchange for letting go if its weapons program, THAT would be treating him like a "civilised person."

Of course, that...would be logical.

ISIS Ramps Up Attacks on Civilians; 477 Killed in Iraq

The United Nations said the organization is investigating airstrikes that took place on May 31 in Mosul. At the time, it was unclear whether they occurred or which forces were behind what was described as a “carpet bombing.” About 50-80 people were killed; 47 deaths were previously recorded. The U.N. also reported hundreds more Islamic State killings in recent weeks.

Conditions at the Khazir displacement camp near Mosul are deteriorating with summer coming on. Uncomfortable heat, increasing numbers of insects and reptiles, and an outbreak of scabies are making residents miserable and ill.

The United States criticized the upcoming Kurdish independence referendum as a distraction from more important issues such as the war against the Islamic State militants. Germany expressed concern that the referendum could worsen sectarian tension. Meanwhile, the Iraqi Turkoman Front (ITF), an umbrella group of political parties, rejected the referendum.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is officially horrible, and the numbers are probably far worse than these estimates.

And as to the Kurdish Referendum coming in September, we will most likely see yet more civil war in Iraq, because the Kurdish referendum is completely against the will of what is left of the Iraqi government.

And we may see regime change in Baghdad, coming from within.

Anyone out there remember the fiery cleric, Muqtada Al Sadr?!? The guy who ultimately told the US that they had to get out of town in Iraq, at precisely the date and time stated by the SOFA agreement, or else he was going to send his Mahdi army after every American in Iraq?!?

Yeah, that guy!!

Well, he is looking - and sounding - as though he wants to make a run for the
next Iraqi election. Here is what he said regarding Macron's election, this last May:

Iraqi prominent cleric Sayyid Muqtada al-Sadr said on Sunday he was looking forward to an "interfaith and inter-civilization dialogue" with France under newly-elected president Emmanuel Macron. The leader of Sadrist Movement described Macron's presidential win as a victory for the moderate politicians in Europe. In a statement, al-Sadr said, "Despite the recent ascend of evil powers in Europe, we find the extremist ideology recessed with the victory of Macron in France, and it is a very important European country". He also expressed hopes the latest developments would lead to expelling all extremist figures from Europe.

Call me silly, but I find this outreach for dialogue, very intelligent; reasonable; and he can hardly do worse than the current President of Iraq, Fuad Masum.

Of course, the US would be horrifically upset if Al-Sadr actually won the election, because there would be no guarantee that Iraq's oil would be US controlled and sold only in the US dollar, as it is now.

Water supplies cut to Kiev-controlled settlements due to government’s troops shellingMore:http://tass.com/world/950640

Water supplies to Kiev-controlled settlements in the eastern Ukrainian region of Donbass were cut after the government troops shelled a water supply facility near the village of Yasinovataya, a negotiator of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) said.
"The vast majority of citizens, who were affected by the water supply cuts, reside on the territory controlled by the Ukrainian government," said Denis Pushilin, the head of the DPR delegation to the reconciliation talks in Minsk.
"Although our citizens faced no major disruptions due to a timely effort by our utility services, residents of about 40 settlements on the opposite side of the contact line will be a lot less lucky," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying.

AFTER LAYING OFF THOUSANDS, BOEING CEO SAYS OFFSHORING WORK TO CHINA WON’T “DIRECTLY HARM” US JOBS

Boeing, the largest US exporter by dollar value, faces a tough environment for commercial jetliners. In 2016, net orders dropped 13% from 2015 and 53% from 2014, to just 668 planes, the lowest level since 2010! Through June 6, 2017, Boeing has just 208 net orders.

The company is under pressure to cut costs. So there has been wave after wave of job cuts through voluntary buyouts and involuntary layoffs last year and this year. Its payroll has shriveled by about 30,000 workers over the past five years. At the end of May it was down to 145,000.

US-BACKED FORCES ENTER RAQQA AS COALITION DROPS WHITE PHOSPHORUS BOMBS

In what some speculate may be the beginning of the end for Daesh (ISIS), the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) entered Raqqa – Daesh’s Syrian stronghold – for the first time on Tuesday. SDF commander Rojda Felat told the AFP news agency that the group is “fighting street battles inside Raqqa now, and we have experience in urban warfare.” The advance came after heavy airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition, which killed more than 20 civilians trying to flee the offensive by boat.

The push for the U.S.-backed SDF to claim Raqqa from Daesh has been in the works for over seven months, having only been made possible by U.S.-led coalition air support, thousands of military advisers and deliveries of heavy weapons. While the U.S.-led coalition, particularly the U.S. itself, claims that this support is all for the common cause of eradicating Daesh, their plans for Raqqa following a Daesh defeat could make the future goal of a united Syria all but impossible to achieve.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but if these reports about the purported US use of white phosphorous and cluster bomb weapons are true, isn't the use of both white phosphorus and cluster bomb weapons banned, internationally, for use against civilians?!?

It appears that the US military is rapidly going rogue, with an "ends justify the means" attitude (now, where have we heard THAT before?!?), and a completely cavalier "Assassinations R Us" level of insensitivity to civilian deaths.

JOHN MCCAIN’S INCOHERENT QUESTIONING OF JAMES COMEY SHOWS WHY WE NEED TERM LIMITS

Does America really need a permanent ruling class of career politicians? According to Real Clear Politics, right now Congress has an average approval rating of just 18.8 percent. It is an institution that is dominated by politicians that are able to keep winning elections over and over again because they are extremely good at raising money. And our permanent ruling class of politicians has learned that it greatly pays to pander to the special interests and the wealthy donors that are able to inject large amounts of cash into their campaigns. This incestuous system produces many incumbents that are almost unbeatable, and the result is that some of these Congress critters end up staying in Washington much, much longer than they should.

On Thursday, we witnessed a perfect example of this. Senator John McCain’s incoherent questioning of James Comey got so much attention on social media that USA Today did a whole story about it…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mc Cain has become an absolute embarrassment to both the voters of his state Arizona) and the entire country as well.

And yes, term limits in Congress would be a very good way to go, as well as insuring that all financial issues be put in a blind trust, the moment they take the oath of office.

And raising money is a part of staying in power; the other factor, which the author of this article, apparently, does not want to address is vote manipulation by electronic means.

RUSSIA’S FOOD SHIPMENTS TO QATAR ARE A SOFT POWER MASTERSTROKE

The Qatari-Saudi Cold War is a geopolitical scheme cooked up by the US and the UAE, as I explained in my 21st Century Wire article about “The Machiavellian Plot to Provoke Saudi Arabia and Qatar into a “Blood Border” War”, but it’s not exactly a surprise that it happened. My September 2016 forward-looking analysis about “The GCC: The Tripartite’s Big Barter In The ‘Eurasian Balkans’” presciently forecast that a second round of Gulf tensions was bound to occur, and that the Great Power Tripartite of Russia, Iran, and Turkey could cooperate with Qatar in helping to break Riyadh’s stranglehold on the GCC. Moreover, my Geopolitica.Ru analysis from earlier this week about “Russia’s Energy Diplomacy In The Mideast: Boom Or Bust?” accurately predicted that Russia will play a role in mediating tensions between the two feuding GCC countries, which has now officially come to pass with the Qatari Foreign Minister’s visit to Moscow this weekend.

U.S. TWITTER ERUPTS OVER NEWS THAT HILLARY CLINTON USED BLACK PRISON LABOR WHILE FIRST LADY OF ARKANSAS

Twitter users have reacted with surprise and fury over excerpts from Hillary Clinton’s 1996 book It Takes A Village. On June 6,Jeanette Jing, an activist with over 33,000 followers on Twitter who supports Clinton’s Democratic opponent Sen.

“When we moved in, I was told that using prison labor at the governor’s mansion was a longstanding tradition, which kept down costs,” Clinton writes. She adds that most of the workers were convicted murderers and she became friendly with “a few of them, African-American men in their thirties who had already served 12 to 18 years of their sentences.”

A LONDON ATTACKER’S LINKS TO UK COVERT OPERATIONS IN SYRIA AND LIBYA

Evidence suggests that one of the London attackers, Rachid Redouane, was part of the broad UK-backed covert strategy to oust Syria’s Assad, following his similar role in Libya in 2011.

It is distinctly possible that Redouane was trained by Qatar special forces in Libya in 2011, as part of a broad UK-approved covert operation. Indeed, it is possible that this training was presided over by UK and US ‘liaison’ officers.

The analysis below is based on mainstream media sources, all in the public domain.

Evidence suggests that one London attacker, Rachid Redouane, was part of the broad UK-backed covert strategy to oust Syria’s Assad, following his similar role in Libya in 2011.

The Telegraph reports that London attacker Rachid Redouane fought in the 2011 British/NATO war against Qaddafi – as did Salman Abedi, the Manchester bomber – and joined a militia which went on to send jihadist fighters to Syria. In Libya, he is believed to have fought with the Liwa al Ummah unit.[1]

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

And the British government didn't expect there to be blowback, when all was said and done?!?

Apparently, the pathological inability to think a scenario all the way through to its logical conclusion, is not only a disease of American government, but also also infects the British government intensely as well.
