MATTIS SAYS RUSSIAN GRU CAUGHT RED-HANDED HACKING OPCW, VOWS CYBER SUPPORT TO ALLIES

Russia is facing new multiple wide-ranging charges of hacking as Western officials on Wednesday alleged its intelligence agencies conducted four high profile cyber attacks, including an attempt to spy on the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which is the independent body responsible for investigating chemical attacks in Syria and in the UK.

The OPCW is headquartered the Netherlands, and according to breaking reports a group that the Dutch government has alleged are Russian operatives may have been caught red-handed in the act.

Moscow has dismissed the charges as but more "Western spy mania" while leveling its own accusations that the Pentagon is conducting an illegal and dangerous germ and bio-weapons research program near Russia's borders.

The four suspects identified by Dutch officials had diplomatic passports and included two IT experts and two support agents, officials said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing of the leveling of these charges, coupled with the very clumsy way in which the evidence was left out for US, Dutch, and NATO operatives to find, and hurtle down the "J'accuse!" was just too cute.

And please remember this; this happened just 24 hours after Mattis had told NATO that he would give them the best of the US's spycraft, if they wanted and needed it.

Things appear to be moving, geopolitically, between Russia, NATO, and the US which is going to lead to war, unless someone mans up, and draws these geopolitical competitors away from the abyss of war. This article from SouthFront, datelined June of this year, demonstrating what NATO and the West's plans are for Ukraine, and what has been done to move that agenda along:

US Involvement in Ukraine: NATO expansion through proxy war

There is a chance, growing exponentially, that NATO and the US are planning to test Moscow with attacks on the breakaway republics, like Donbass, which do not want to submit again to Ukrainian control.

An article appearing in Tass just yesterday seems to confirm this, in a very jarring manner:

Kiev moving air defense systems to contact line in Donbass — Russian OSCE envoy

The timing of this move, I think, may well be gravely significant, and augur
badly for peace in the region.

Then, we have current developments in Syria, which require serious consideration and attention.

This morning, courtesy of blacklistednews.com, we have the following headline:

US Sends Marines into Eastern Syria to join major battle. The article goes on to state:

"US Marines are now being sent into the area to join the ground offensive. Previously, the US was offering only air support. This is the first ground troop deployment of this latest military push.

So we now have documented evidence of US boots on the ground in Syria; it is only a matter of time before we have Russian and Syrian troops tangling with US troops, and there appears to be no deconfliction area for where these troops are fighting.

So, we have one potential theatre of war in and around Ukraine, with the other in Syria, where Israel has vowed to strike again against any Iranian units on the ground might be, in spite of Russia having installed their truly capable S-300 defensive system for the Syrians.

What could possibly go wrong?!?

Bloody everything!!!

US Navy Wants Major War Exercise in South China Sea - Report

Following a dramatic close call between US and Chinese destroyers in the South China Sea, the US Navy’s Pacific Fleet wants to put on a major show of force in the body of water before the end of the year.

Military officials told CNN Wednesday that the Navy wanted to send warships and aircraft through the South China Sea — and close to Chinese-claimed islands — in November to send a message to Beijing.

Sanctions against Russia and the information war carried out by the West are not helping to resolve the crisis in eastern Ukraine, the Russian Foreign

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No, these US military officials do not want "war games"; they actually have the hubris to believe that the US could make mincemeat of the Chinese military, in a very quick and totally humiliating way.

I, for one, do not see that outcome from these "war games", I would like to hope that we have at least a few "adults in the room", in both Beijing and DC, to insure that both the US and China walk back from the brink of this military misadventure, this coming vortex of bombs and bullets, to which we are apparently being dragged.

I, for one, do not want to see this happen, and I think adult Americans and Chinese do not want to see this happening, either.

US Hacking Charges, Sharing Cyberweapons With NATO Inflame Danger of ‘Real War’

US, UK and Dutch authorities levied heavy accusations against Russian intelligence officials Thursday, alleging that seven Russians had hacked various agencies, organizations and institutions. The accusations come just one day after the US announced it would share offensive cyberwar technology with NATO allies “if asked.”

"We announce an indictment charging seven Russian military officers with violation of several US criminal laws for malicious cyber activities against the United States and its allies," US Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers told reporters Thursday. Four of the accused are allegedly GRU agents, Russian military intelligence, who were previously expelled from the Netherlands, the Los Angeles Times reported.

US Defense Secretary James Mattis, at a meeting with NATO allies in Brussels, said Russia would "have to be held to account."

Timing of UK, Dutch Accusations Against Russia Point to 'Closely Coordinated Action' – Scholar

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, we appear to be on the brink of a world war almost more intensely than at almost any other time in my life..

And at this juncture of the process, understanding that sophisticated AI can very probably be weaponised, and caused to lash out in a devastating cyber war which could, quickly, become a shooting war,

I really think that now - and right the HELL now- is the time the representatives for Russia, NATO, and the US to please check their testosterone before they walk into that hopefully upcoming meeting with each other to ramp tensions down.

Unfortunately, however, it is very hard for me to see that the folks controlling the Unhinged, Surveilled, State of Amerika really wants peace.

These alleged actions, right after the US has sanctioned Russia for its alleged poisoning of Skripal and his daughter, is too abrupt not to be characterized like the ink of a squid, which uses it to create what magicians would call "misdirection".

This misdirection on the part of Europe and the US is to further, and very quickly, demonize Russia before people ask themselves the question; why would the Russian state do something like this when the odds of getting away with the project be nearly slim to none, and done so clumsily to boot, that greasy digital "fingerprints" were left all over the place for the US to "discover"?!?

And please remember; tThese revelations were made just one day after United States Sec Def Mattis "... promised US allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) the use of its offensive cyberwarfare technology if they so desired."

I frankly suspect that this was a digital "false flag", to marginalize and demonize Russia to the rest of the world, in order to "groom" the world, and the American people, for a bloody war against it.

The preparations for such a war have been set up in the outlying reaches of Ukraine, which has been prepped for such a conflict, generously armed and trained by both NATO and the United States military.

It appears to me that the question will be one of "when", rather than "if" with such a potentially explosive conflict looming.

Dozens of Georgians likely killed by US toxin or bioweapon disguised as drug research – Russian MoD

A US-funded biomedical laboratory in Georgia may have conducted bioweapons research under the guise of a drug test, which claimed the lives of at least 73 subjects, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement.

The question of what really might have taken place at the secretive US-sponsored research facility hosted by Russia’s southern neighbor was raised by the Russian military on Thursday after they studied files published online by a former Georgian minister.

The documents record the deaths of 73 people over a short period of time, indicating a test of “a highly toxic chemical or biological agents with high lethality rate,” said Igor Kirillov, commander of the Russian military branch responsible for defending troops from radiological, chemical and biological weapons.

Israeli Minister: S-300 Systems 'Cannot Detect Our Stealth Fighters'

Israeli stealth fighters will be able to avoid being hit by the S-300 missile systems that have just been supplied to Syria by Russia and can possibly destroy them right on the ground, an Israeli official said.

“You know that we have stealth fighters, the best planes in the world. These batteries are not even able to detect them," Tzachi Hanegbi, the country's regional cooperation minister and a non-voting member of its security cabinet, said on Wednesday, referring to the F-35 Joint Strike Fighters that Israel has been getting from the US.

"The operational abilities of the air force are such that those (S-300) batteries really do not constrain the air force's abilities to act," Hanegbi told Israel's Army Radio.

On Tuesday, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that Moscow had delivered S-300 missile systems to Syria in order to increase the security of Russian military personnel in the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The real unknown, and the primal nightmare, for American and Israeli military is, what if these S-300s are equipped to successfully detect stealth technology?!?

Pence set to accuse China of trying to undermine Trump

Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday plans to accuse China of trying to undermine President Donald Trump as the administration deploys tough new rhetoric over Chinese trade, economic, and foreign policies.

In a speech to the Hudson Institute, Pence will say China is using its power in “more proactive and coercive ways to interfere in the domestic policies and politics of the United States.”

“China wants a different American president,” Pence will say, according to excerpts of prepared remarks from his office.

Pence’s speech comes a week after the Republican president accused China during a meeting of the U.N. Security Council of interfering in American elections to help his Democratic rivals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at zerohedge.com this morning, there are some elements of truth in these charges. at Bloomberg business news today, the following charges were levied:

Explosive report details Chinese infiltration of Apple, Amazon, and the CIA

The report goes on to state:

"One week ago, President Trump stood up at a meeting of the United Nations Security Council and accused China of attempting to tamper with US elections - mimicking some of the same allegations that had first been levied against Russia nearly two years prior. In his speech, Trump claimed that China was working to undermine Republicans, and even the president himself, warning that "it's not just Russia, it's China and Russia." While the media largely shrugged off this proclamation as more presidential bombast probably inspired by the burgeoning US-China trade beef, the administration continued to insist that it was taking a harder line against Chinese efforts to subvert American companies to aide the Communist Party's sprawling intelligence apparatus. As if to underline Trump's point, the FBI had arrested a Taiwanese national in Chicago the day before Trump's speech, accusing the 27-year-old suspect of trying to help China flip eight defense contractors who could have provided crucial intelligence on sensitive defense-related technology.

But in a game-changing report published Thursday morning, Bloomberg Businessweek exposed a sprawling multi-year investigation into China's infiltration of US corporate and defense infrastructure. Most notably, it confirmed that, in addition to efforts designed to sway US elections, China' intelligence community orchestrated a pervasive infiltration of servers used to power everything from MRI machines to the drones used by the CIA and army. They accomplished this using a tiny microchip no bigger than a grain of rice.

BBG published the report just hours before Vice President Mike Pence was expected to "string together a narrative of Chinese aggression" during a speech at the Hudson Institute in Washington. According to excerpts leaked to the New York Times, his speech was expected to focus on examples of China's "aggressive moves against American warships, of predatory behavior against their neighbors, and of a sophisticated influence campaign to tilt the midterms and 2020 elections against President Trump". His speech is also expected to focus on how China leverages debt and its capital markets to force foreign governments to submit to its will (something that has happened in Bangladesh and the Czech Republic)."

IF these charges prove to be true, the US government has got to rethink its entire relationship with China, from trade to how the US military is dealing with its Chinese counterparts.

Kay Bailey Hutchison Must Resign– because starting World War III isn’t what Americans voted for

by Justin Raimondo Posted on October 04, 2018
How crazy-stupid do you have to be to get up there on the podium and openly threaten Russia with a “preemptive” first strike? You don’t have to be Kay Bailey Hutchison, but it helps.

Our “Ambassador” to NATO – as if NATO is an actual country rather than a supra-national parasite – claims that Moscow is in violation of the INF treaty, and that, while she’s willing to give diplomacy a try, she is “prepared to consider a military strike if development of the medium-range system continued.”

So now the “Ambassador” to NATO is empowered to start World War III. Next we’ll have the Postmaster General ordering an invasion of Iran. The Ambassadress has exceeded her authority and caused an international incident that may come to haunt us: certainly she has endangered us all. In a civilized country like Japan, she would literally fall on her sword, but I’ll settle for her resignation.

Syrian military to be trained to use Russian S-300 systems within three months

It will take three months to train Syrian specialists to use Russian S-300 air defense systems, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Tuesday at a Russian Security Council meeting chaired by President Vladimir Putin.

"We have finished personnel recruitment and have begun to train them," he said.

So far, Russia has supplied Syria with 49 equipment pieces as part of delivery of the S-300 air defense system, Shoigu said.

"In conformity with the presidential decision, we have begun to carry out a number of measures to reinforce Syria’s air defense systems in order to ensure better protection for our servicemen. We have completed the delivery of S-300 systems. It included 49 pieces of equipment, including radars, control vehicles and four launchers," he told a Russian Security Council meeting chaired by President Vladimir Putin.

According to the minister, the delivery was finished a day ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation; until the transition has begun to hand off the system to trained Syrian military, it will be Russian military personnel who will be operating this equipment.

I would like to hope that both the US and Israel are not stupid enough to believe that they can continue to strike targets within Syria with impunity, and without running the risks of having their jets blown out of the sky.

These systems are suggested to be able, potentially, to detect stealth vehicles from a considerable distance away, and neutralize them:

US Threatens To Destroy Russian Nuclear-Capable Missile System If Necessary

U.S. Ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison on Tuesday warned that the U.S. could be forced to "take out" missiles Russia is developing that violate a Cold War-era treaty. If completed, the 9M729 Russian missile system could give it the capability to launch a missile strike on Europe with little or no notice, the Associated Press reported.

"It is time now for Russia to come to the table and stop the violations," Hutchison told reporters in Brussels, where US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis would later meet his NATO counterparts. She added that if the system became operational, the U.S. "would then be looking at the capability to take out a missile that could hit any of our countries in Europe and hit America."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Does she not understand that the targeting of such a Russia weapon, whether or not is has been enabled, is an act of war?!?!

Video: Israel-Iran Conflict Escalates Further as Netanyahu Comes with New Accusations Against Tehran

On September 27, during a speech to the UN General Assembly, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that Iran has a secret “atomic warehouse” near Tehran, which has contained as much as whopping 300 tons of “nuclear-related material.”

Netanyahu also stated that Hezbollah has established three precision missile sites near the Beirut airport.

“In Lebanon, Iran is directing Hezbollah to build secret sites to convert inaccurate projectiles into precision-guided missiles, missiles that can target deep inside Israel within an accuracy of 10 meters,” he stated.

Following the statement, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) released photos showing alleged Hezbollah sites in Beirut that the IDF said are being used to hide underground precision missile production facilities. The IDF claimed that these sites are currently being constructed with Iranian assistance.

According to the Israeli version, Hezbollah began working on these surface-to-surface missile facilities last year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation; Netanyahu will say and/or do anything to get President Trump to sign off on the US military attacking Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Iran.

These statements, made 27 September, feel as though they are a prelude to some kind of a false flag, probably coming soon, to be blamed upon one of the one of the above "usual suspects" (most likely, Iran), and we'll be off and running on a war for Israel, but with the primarily costs in blood and money, to be exacted from US troops.

One Click Closer to Nuclear Annihilation

There are a number of things exaggerated or incorrect in Trump’s description of Iran as well as in the conclusions he draws. The Middle East and other adjacent Muslim countries are in chaos because the United States has destabilized the region starting with the empowering of the Islamist Mujaheddin in the war against Soviet Afghanistan in the 1980s. It then invaded Afghanistan in 2001 followed by Iraq in 2003, enabling the rise of ISIS and giving local al-Qaeda affiliates a new lease on life, before turning on Damascus with the Syria Accountability Act later in the same year and then destroying the Libyan government under Barack Obama. These were, not coincidentally, policies promoted by Israel that received, as a result, bipartisan support in Congress.

‘I felt unable to move an inch, I fell on the ground,’ says sister of 12-year old Palestinian killed in deadliest day in Gaza in weeks

Friday marked one of the deadliest days at the fence that divides the Gaza Strip from Israel since protests began in Gaza last March, as Israeli forced killed seven including two children.

Four of the seven were shot dead east of Gaza City in circumstances where it appears the demonstrators posed no threat to Israeli soldiers. “Amateur videos showed them kneeling down and kissing the ground on the Israeli side as gunfire could be heard,” the AP reported.

The youngest casualties on Friday were Mohammed al-Houm, 14, and Nasser Mosabeh, 12.

The Israeli military estimated around 20,000 Palestinians protested on Friday at multiple sites along the fence. At least 509 were injured, three in serious condition, according to Gaza’s ministry of health. Additionally four paramedics, four journalists and 90 children were shot with live ammunition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Warning: potent graphics) Please scroll all the way down to view all the images, and let that figure sink in about how many children were shot with live ammo last Friday.

What country on God's earth, has the collective mindset which allows for the shooting of even one child, let alone 90 kids, and considers it to be perfectly normal, and justifiable?!?

Only Israel's government believes that it can do so with impunity against Palestinian children, and that there will never be a price to be paid for these actions.

But there is a Biblical injunction to which Tel Aviv needs to pay attention, and particularly at this moment in their history, even through they don't believe in that offshoot of Judaism which became Christianity: "That which you sow, you will also reap."

Afghanistan Will Not Allow ‘Foreign Mercenaries': Ghani

President Ghani says Afghan forces have enough potential and have managed to save the country from “collapse”.

In reaction to the possibility of privatizing the Afghan war, President Ashraf Ghani said he will not allow “foreign mercenaries” to operate in Afghanistan.

Addressing the 3rd Mayors National Conference, the president said the Afghan government forces have enough potential and have managed to save the country from “collapse”.

“You should know that the work which is done by Afghans cannot be done by any foreign mercenary and foreign mercenaries will never be allowed in this soil,” Ghani said.

Ghani’s remarks come days after Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater security company, in an interview with TOLOnews, insisted the Afghan war will end “a few months” using his plan to send in few thousand contracted mentors to Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope and pray that President Trump will not take Prince up on his proposal; that would simply inflame the feelings of the Afghani people to the point where many more US and UN military will wind up getting shot at, maimed, and/or killed.

Saudi Arabia Admits ‘Mistakes’ in Targeting in Yemen: Investigators ask how many times Saudis can accidentally bomb same civilian targets

Addressing the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child on Monday with respect to the massive civilian death toll in the Saudi invasion of Yemen, Saudi officials made rare admissions of fault, saying that they had made “mistakes” in targeting and were working hard to rectify the problem.

Saudi officials were clearly trying to use this to get a pass on the ten thousand-plus killed civilians, insisting that the internal investigations note the “mistakes,” and that perpetrators will be “held to account,” despite little evidence that this ever happened.

The UN committee didn’t appear to be sold on this idea either, with members noting the war has been going on since 2015 with no sign of prosecutions for civilian deaths. Panel chairwoman Renate Winter noted that an awfully large number of these “mistakes” had hit the same civilian targets, with several schools and hospitals hit myriad times. She asked how many times the Saudis could possibly keep making that same mistake.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Saudis will keep on making the "same mistake", because the B.O.Y. (the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Crown Prince Bin Salman) and his BFF in the Middle East, Amerika's Merchant of Death in Chief, President Trump, want to see as many kids, schools, and hospitals blown up as humanly possible, because they don't want future Yemenis growing up with a memory that Yemen, at one point, had both an independent history, and national trajectory other, than through Saudi control.

And we have a companion piece, again from antiwar.com, with the following headline: US Air Force keeps refueling Saudi warplanes in Yemen

One Click Closer to Annihilation

The nuclear war doomsday clock maintained on the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists website has advanced to two minutes before midnight, the closest point to possible atomic apocalypse since the end of the Cold War. In 1995 the clock was at fourteen minutes to midnight, but the opportunity to set it back even further was lost as the United States and its European allies took advantage of a weakened Russia to advance NATO into Eastern Europe, setting the stage for a new cold war, which is now underway.

It is difficult to imagine how the United States might avoid a new war in the Middle East given the recent statements that have come out of Washington, and, given that the Russians are also active in the region, a rapid and massive escalation of something that starts out as a minor incident should not be ruled out.

Iran refutes Israel’s secret nuclear site claims

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif on Friday rejected Israeli prime minister’s claims that Tehran has developed a secret nuclear site, Anadolu Agency reports.

Israel is only regime in our region with a secret and undeclared nuclear weapons program – including an actual atomic arsenal.

“Time for Israel to fess up and open its illegal nuclear weapons program to international inspectors,” Zarif wrote on Twitter in response to Netanyahu’s claims.

A Time-Lapse Map of Every Nuclear Explosion Since 1945 - by Isao Hashimoto

Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto has created a beautiful, undeniably scary time-lapse map of the 2053 nuclear explosions which have taken place between 1945 and 1998, beginning with the Manhattan Project's "Trinity" test near Los Alamos and concluding with Pakistan's nuclear tests in May of 1998. This leaves out North Korea's two alleged nuclear tests in this past decade (the legitimacy of both of which is not 100% clear).
Each nation gets a blip and a flashing dot on the map whenever they detonate a nuclear weapon, with a running tally kept on the top and bottom bars of the screen. Hashimoto, who began the project in 2003, says that he created it with the goal of showing"the fear and folly of nuclear weapons." It starts really slow — if you want to see real action, skip ahead to 1962 or so — but the buildup becomes overwhelming.

IRAN WARNS SAUDIS OF "RED LINES" AND THREATENS US BASES "WILL NOT BE SAFE"

Iran has issued a number of threats on Friday following official charges made by leaders in Tehran that Saudi Arabia and the UAE funded a terrorist attack on a military parade in a southwest district last Saturday which killed 25 people, including members of the elite Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).

Iranian military officials declared "red lines" against the two Gulf countries, threatening war, while in a separate statement a senior cleric said US regional bases will not be safe if "America does anything wrong".

"If America does anything wrong, their bases around Iran would not remain secure,"Ayatollah Mohammadali Movahedi Kermani was quoted as saying by Mizan news agency while leading Friday prayers in Tehran.

And simultaneously the Fars news agency quoted Brigadier General Hossein Salami, deputy head of the IRGC, as saying in reference to the Saudis and Emirates: “If you cross our red lines, we will surely cross yours. You know the storm the Iranian nation can create.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dear Ayatollah Kermani and IRGC General Salami: a word, please, respectfully.

Intelligent people understand that Israel, the Emirates, the Saudis, and some forces in the US government, would stop at nothing to try to "regime change" Tehran, including supporting/funding/orchestrating a mass terror attack against the IRGC.

You need to understand that intelligent people in the US do not want a war against Iran, and as a Christian pacifist activist, I detest war as a means of resolving geopolitical differences.

But please also understand: the people of the Unhinged, Surveilled, State of Amerika have utterly no control over their government whatsoever.

Elections in this country are a very brilliantly staged, Kabuki-like display of the illusion that the American people in this country are actually in control of its future, when they are not.

Unfortunately, the cold, hard, bleak reality is that by the time candidates are presented by both Democrats and Republicans as their Presidential contenders, they have all been vetted by that dark triumverate, the American Deep State; major corporations; and the military industrial complex, to assure that the wars they want to see happen, will happen.

Also, unfortunately, Iran has been on both Israel's and the US's "regime change" list ever since it's 1979 revolution.

And so, this fall, we have "the perfect storm" situation signaling an attack against Iran, in that we have a sitting President, President Trump, whose BFFs in the Middle East are the Butcher of Palestine (a.k.a. Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu, and Saudi Arabia's Butcher of Yemen (a.k.a. Prince Mohammed bin Salman).

The timing of such an attack may well happen just before the mid-term elections happen here in the US. President Trump has issued his "drop dead date edict", that no country will be allowed to purchase Iranian oil after Sunday, 4 November, or suffer dire economic consequences

Tuesday, 6 November is the date of the US's midterms. I would suspect that such an attack against Iran might well be planned right around those dates, in order to make President Trump look "butch" to the voting electorate.

Unfortunately, just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government could do, is no guarantee that it won't do it.

US Intel Officials Publicly Contradict Netanyahu's UN Speech On "New" Iran Atomic Facility

Netanyahu's Thursday UN General Assembly speech predictably included the familiar props and visuals condemning Iran over what the Israeli prime minister says is a continuing nuclear program it is hiding from the world's view.

Like pretty much all prior Netanyahu speeches focusing on Iran, he held up a physical "evidence" to illustrate his points as he spoke — this time it was a "proof" that Iran has yet another secret warehouse holding nuclear-related material in the form of an aerial photograph of the Iranian capital marked with a red arrow pointing to a large building.

Though this was perhaps a step up from the cartoon bomb performance at the UNGA in 2012, the act is now a fixture and entirely predictable after many others spanning years, barely eliciting much media excitement compared to six years ago.

But unlike the last number of similar speeches, US intelligence officials have told Reuters that the claims are not true.

Erik Prince Thinks He Can Turn Around The War In Afghanistan With 6 Months And 3,600 Men

The former founder and CEO of Blackwater says he needs just six months and roughly 3,600 men to make the Afghan War look far different from the shitshow it is now.

In an interview with Afghanistan’s TOLO News, Erik Prince once again pitched his idea to privatize the nearly-17-year-old conflict, offering up a force of “contracted veteran mentors” from the United States and NATO countries to serve alongside Afghan security forces.

“Well, I would say six months after the program is fully ramped up, you have a very different situation on the ground, I will commit to that,” Prince said, outlining a plan to provide 36 contractors for each unit of Afghan security forces, who would serve for two to four years at a time.

Yes, you read that right: Erik Prince says he can turn the war around in six months while suggesting his contractors could be there for at least four years.

President Donald J Trump Beli~eves The Fakest Fake News Of All

The Fakest Fake News: The U.S. Government’s 9/11 Conspiracy Theory
A Review of 9/11Unmasked: An International Review Panel Investigation by David Ray Griffin and Elizabeth Woodworth

For seventeen years we have been subjected to an onslaught of U.S. government and corporate media propaganda about 9/11 that has been used to support the “war on terror” that has resulted in millions of deaths around the world. It has been used as a pretext to attack nations throughout the Middle East, South Asia, and Africa.

It has led to a great increase in Islamophobia since Muslims were accused of being responsible for the attacks. It has led to a crackdown on civil liberties in the United States, the exponential growth of a vast and costly national security apparatus, the spreading of fear and anxiety on a great scale, and a state of permanent war that is pushing the world toward a nuclear confrontation. And much, much more.

Trump Deviates from the Israel-first Agenda at the UN

Trump deviated from the script during his UN address.

He declared the solution to the “Israeli Palestinian conflict” is the establishment of two separate states, something the Likudniks not only in Israel but the United States certainly will not consider, let alone tolerate. It is plainly and painfully obvious what the Likudniks want—the expulsion of every last Palestinian, a process that should be called ethnic cleansing but never is by the corporate media.

There isn’t an “Israeli Palestinian conflict” that requires a peace deal brokered by Jared Kushner, a personal friend of Bibi Netanyahu. The conflict was long ago manufactured by the Israelis for the explicit purpose of either forcing Palestinians to emigrate or stay behind and risk snipers murdering their children.

The effort to establish a purely racist and religious state—where only Jews are allowed to live as citizens—was nudged along by Israel’s “National Home” law passed in the Knesset in July.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Boy, that is one impressive "To Do" list for the American military.

And NO, New York Times, Israel's Basic Law (which treats the Palestinians as absolutely non-existent, 2nd class citizens), can NOT serve as Israel's Constitution; a Constitution needs to voted upon by members of Parliament, or in this case, the Knesset, in order to become the rule of law.

I am willing to bet that right after the mid-terms,
I would suspect that Israel will "fake President Trump out" with a false flag, and fool him into making a move against Russia, Iran, or Syria, perhaps all of them on Syrian soil.

IF and when that happens, watch for all hell to break loose.

And no matter which party will be in control of Congress in these mid-terms, I fully expect to see the reinstitution of the draft in this country; after all, the wealthy and monied ALWAYS manage to keep their families from being hit by conscription.

Via arms and trade, Russia plots long-term Syrian future

The same day that Russian diplomats struck a deal with Turkey over a demilitarized zone in Syria’s last rebel-run region, dozens of Russian businessmen were flying home from Damascus, contracts in hand for trade with a postwar Syria.

Whatever happens to the rebels in Idlib province, Russia is determined to keep Syria solidly anchored in its sphere of influence over the long term — both as a foothold in the Middle East and as a warning to the U.S. and its allies against future interference.

“Russia wants … a new Mideast security order,” said Emile Hokayem, Middle East security expert at the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

While Russia is blamed for widespread death and destruction as it supports Syrian President Bashar Assad, its forces have proven decisive in the international struggle against the Islamic State group, giving Moscow a credibility that Western powers lack. “Their intervention yielded much better returns than anyone expected,” Hokayem said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President has been utterly irrelevant in the community of nations regarding Syria since the day the statement was made that the US was going to stay in Syria past the time when ISIS had been defeated.

HOUSE RESOLUTION DIRECTS TRUMP TO END U.S. SUPPORT FOR YEMEN WAR

IN CONGRESS, FRUSTRATION with the U.S. role in Yemen is nearing a breaking point. Sen. Bob Menendez — the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee — is holding up a $2 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates over concerns that the two countries routinely bomb civilian targets. Meanwhile, in the House, U.S. assistance to the Saudi- and UAE-led coalition is about to face another major hurdle.

On Wednesday, California Democrat Ro Khanna introduced a resolution invoking the 1973 War Powers Act, declaring that Congress never authorized U.S. support for the coalition in Yemen and directing President Donald Trump to withdraw U.S. troops from “hostilities” against the Houthis, the Iranian-backed rebel group at war with Saudi Arabia and the UAE. The resolution would not affect U.S. forces who are on the ground in Yemen fighting Al Qaeda.

Iran video threatens missile strikes on UAE, Saudi Arabia

An Iranian media outlet close to the hard-line Revolutionary Guard published a video Tuesday threatening missile attacks on the capitals of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, further raising tensions after a weekend militant attack on an Iranian military parade.

The video, in a tweet by the semi-official Fars news agency that was later deleted, comes as Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei blamed Riyadh and Abu Dhabi for the attack in the city of Ahvaz on Saturday, which killed at least 24 people and wounded over 60.

The threat amplifies the unease felt across the Persian Gulf, as Iran’s economy reels in the wake of America’s withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal and Saudi and Emirati forces are bogged down in their war against Iran-aligned rebels in Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This hit-piece reeks of an Israeli intelligence job, seeking to get more empathy by characterising itself (as it so frequently does) as "the victim" here, when the victims were Iranian soldiers of the Revolutionary Guards.

The fact that the statement from Khameni was excerpted from a far earlier speech, rather than being a statement on current events, is also another hit on its credibility and authenticity.

Look for a US/Israeli "false flag" to hit in some neighboring country, as the "justification" for the US and Israel to start pounding Iran militarily in the not too distant future.

The Path to World War III? Risky Israeli behavior threatens everyone

But there is another dimension to the story that the international media has largely chosen to ignore. And that is that Israel is now carrying out almost daily air attacks on Syria, over 200 in the past 18 months, a country with which it is not at war and which has not attacked it or threatened it in any way. It justifies the attacks by claiming that they are directed against Iran or Hezbollah, not at Syria itself. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has insisted that any peace settlement in Syria include the complete removal of Iranians, a demand that has also been repeated by the United States, which is also calling for the end to the Bashar al-Assad government and its replacement by something more “democratic.”

Bolton Slams Russia, Says S-300 Sale in Syria Is ‘Significant Escalation’

Speaking to reporters on Monday, National Security Adviser John Bolton slammed Russia for the announced sale of S-300 air defense systems to the Syrian government, demanding that they “reconsider” and warning that the US would view this as a “significant escalation” of the Syrian war.

Russia announced the move after a recent attack on the Syrian coast by Israel, during which a Russian Il-20 was shot down. Russia says the more advanced S-300s will be safer. Israel had insisted Syria deliberately attacked the Russian plane, while Russia says the Israeli jets were under fire from Syria and “hid” behind the larger Russian plane, getting it caught in the fire.

Bolton dismissed both of those explanations, however, saying that “really the party responsible for the shooting down of the Russian plane is Iran,” even though Iran had no involvement in the incident whatsoever.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having a double-Picard face palm upon reading these statements, and one has to wonder; is being able to lie with impunity to the people with whom you are speaking the most significant requirement of America's National Security Advisor?!?

And please, how is Russia's sending in a defensive weapons system so that Syria can protect itself from attack, an "escalation", when the Syrians, with Russian help, have pretty successfully routed the rebels in their country?!? As my late grandmother would have said, "The horse is already out of the barn" here.

All of the above is because US intervention in Syria failed, miserably, and Bashar Al Assad has pretty much taken his country back. That why Bolton is at his hubristic, unhinged worst in these statements, and why the "next US-generated war" in the region will be engineered to change that outcome.

Advisor Bolton knows precisely where he wants this kind of intense anti-Russian demonization to steer the American people, and that most probably is into an horrendous war against Iran, Syria, and Lebanon, for good measure, with Russia, and possibly China lining up with these countries to defend them against the US onslaught.

And unfortunately, just as has happened with Iraq right before the US invasion/occupation, (Saddam, allegedly, had weapons of mass destruction, remember?!?), we are being force-fed a false narrative with which to "ease" the American public into the right mindset to allow for some kind of "false flag" against American interests, to be blamed on Russia, Iran,or Syria, or all of them, as the "justification" to proceed to war against them.

CHINA "STRONGLY" URGES US TO HALT TAIWAN ARMS SALES AFTER $300 MILLION DEAL

Though it's hardly surprising, given President Trump's stridently anti-China rhetoric during the campaign, relations between the US and China have deteriorated to a dramatic degree since the beginning of 2018. And with the US and China trading threats following the US's decision to sanction a branch of the Chinese military for buying arms from Russia (as China threatened the US with unspecified "consequences" if it didn't undo its "mistake"), the US has thrown gasoline on the fire by moving ahead with a planned sale of F-16 fighter jets and other weaponry to Taiwan in defiance of China's warnings, per Reuters and Bloomberg.

The arms sale follows China's participation in joint military drills with Russia earlier this month, as well as drills in the Strait of Taiwan earlier this year that were intended to simulate an invasion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, President Trump has decided that only the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly obvious and awkward moves on its behalf with regard to China will do.

And the problems here are, that the US government does not come at all from a position of strength in these negotiations; the US military does not have the money, the weaponry, the manufacturing or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against China.

And yet, President Trump keeps pushing the Chinese leadership harder and harder when it comes to trade, with his sanctions, and supporting Taiwan with weapons and military exercises.

What concerns me here, is how quickly a trade war can morph into a shooting war, with very little notice.

U.S. History of Chemical Weapons Use and Complicity in War Crimes

The world is once again witnessing the height of U.S. hypocrisy as members of the U.S. State Department ratchet up anti-Russian and anti-Syrian rhetoric surrounding the use of chemical weapons in Syria and the UK. Ambassador Nikki Haley has warned Syria, Iran and Russia that they will be held accountable for their pre-determined use of chemical weapons in Idlib on innocent civilians. No evidence was provided to support her threats. The United States carried out cruise missile strikes on two previous occasions, and each time provided no evidence to prove their assertion that the Syrian government used chemical weapons in attacking civilians, nor was any rational reason given for such an obviously irrational decision on the part of the Syrian state. No evidence has ever been provided to justify the clear international crime of aggression committed by the United States on these two earlier occasions. Now, the UK and the U.S. are both attempting to accuse the Russian government of using chemical weapons in an alleged attempted assassination of a Russian national on UK soil. Once again, no real evidence has been presented, only assertions and hearsay.

Yemen’s Hodeida Offensive: Once Avoidable, Now Imminent

The coalition’s strategy seems to be to seal the Houthis into Hodeida and squeeze.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pompeo knew he was signing off on a lie, to protect US weapons sales:

Pompeo Lied to Congress About Yemen To Protect Arms Sales ("Originally appeared on The American Conservative.)

The article goes on to state:

Mike Pompeo’s certification earlier this month that the Saudi coalition was working to reduce harm to civilians in Yemen was an obvious sham. According to a new report in The Wall Street Journal, Pompeo made the decision to lie for the Saudis and Emiratis because he feared it would hurt arms sales:

Mr. Pompeo overruled concerns from most of the State Department specialists involved in the debate who were worried about the rising civilian death toll in Yemen. Those who objected included specialists in the region and in military affairs. He sided with his legislative affairs team after they argued that suspending support could undercut plans to sell more than 120,000 precision-guided missiles to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, according to a classified State Department memo and people familiar with the debate."

Foreign policy in this country is never about protecting "We the People"; it is about protecting the wealth of "Those the Monied", as in defence contractors, who contribute so lavishly, overtly, and covertly, to national campaigns.

And if your national Presstitute Warrespondents has not covered the plight of Yemen, under the B.O.Y.'s watch, the following images will make clear why not: (Warning: very graphic)

Images: Yemeni kids slaughtered and maimed for life by Saudi bombing runs

Images: Yemeni kids starving through the US-enabled Saudi blockades of Yemen's ports

Images: Yemeni kids dying from cholera outbreak

If you nearly lost your breakfast in looking at this, there is still hope that you may be somewhat human. But what we need to do, on a national scale, is very peacefully, and logically, call this government out on what amounts to aiding and abetting war criminals in Saudi Arabia, in their genocide of Yemen.

In the Wikipedia article about him, I find it thoroughly astonishing that this man identifies himself as a Christian, while performing as the "Assistant Merchant of Death in Chief" for his military industrial complex buddies. Perhaps, he sees no conflict whatsoever; I have to wonder how he cannot.

LEAKED MEMO SHOWS US OVERLOOKED MASS CIVILIAN DEATHS IN YEMEN TO PRESERVE ARMS SALES

On rare occasion a story is unearthed in the mainstream media which demonstrates in stunning clarity how major foreign policy decisions are really made in Washington, especially when it comes to waging perpetual war in the Middle East often under the official rhetorical guise of “protecting civilians”.

A bombshell Wall Street Journal report details a leaked classified memo which shows Secretary of State Mike Pompeo decided to continue US military involvement in the Saudi war on Yemen in order to preserve a massive $2 billion weapons deal with Riyadh.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These days, the governance in this country, is never about really, honestly taking care of the needs and concerns of We the People; it is about how financially morbidly obese defense corporations can squeeze more money out of wars to which the US government should have never committed our military in the bloody first place.

SAUDI ARABIA FEARS US SANCTIONS FOR BUYING RUSSIAN MISSILE DEFENCE SYSTEM

Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to Russia has revealed his hope that the US will not impose sanctions on his country for its plans to buy the S-400 missile defence system from Moscow, AlKhaleejonline.com reported on Friday.

Raed Ben Khalid Qarmali made his comment when asked if Saudi Arabia is going ahead with its plan to purchase the system, just one day after America imposed sanctions on China for a similar deal with the Russians.

“I hope that no one imposes sanctions on us,” said Qarmali. He noted that 14 memorandums were signed during the visit of Saudi King Salman to Moscow, including four military deals. “The implementation of three has just started,” the ambassador added.

The Trump administration imposed sanctions on China after Beijing bought aircraft and other military equipment from Russia. The Chinese government described the American move as a “flagrant violation of the rules of international relations.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because Saudi Arabia's Royal leader, the B.O.Y. (AKA, the Butcher of Yemen) is so idolized by President Trump as "a guy who can get things done in the Middle East (like the genocide of the Yemeni people), I would doubt seriously that President Trump will have a problem with this; but he may well surprise me.

CHINA THREATENS US WITH "CONSEQUENCES" IF IT DOES NOT "IMMEDIATELY" REVOKE SANCTIONS OVER RUSSIAN WEAPONS DEAL

Just hours after Beijing called off trade talks with the US in the biggest escalation of the trade feud between the two nations, the war of words between China and the US ratcheted up on Saturday, when Beijing lashed out again at Washington, saying that China’s decision to buy fighter jets and missile systems from Russia is "a normal act of cooperation between sovereign countries" and the United States has "no right to interfere", defense ministry spokesman Wu Qian said on Saturday.

"The U.S. approach is a blatant violation of the basic norms of international relations, a full manifestation of hegemony, and a serious breach of the relations between the two countries and their two militaries," Wu said in a notice posted on the Chinese defense ministry’s official Wechat account according to Reuters.

He also warned that the US would face "consequences" if it did not immediately revoke the sanctions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please; I understand that even the most elemental study of history bores you to tears, but I would like you to consider the following dark, brutal reality: those individuals who do not understand history, are doomed to repeat it.

I would like to suggest that you take a look at the economic realities in both Germany and Japan before the advent of World War II, where ultimately trade wars became shooting wars.

Even the cabal of warhawks with which you have managed to surround yourself, to the utter and complete detriment and contempt of any efforts toward peaceful resolutions of geopolitical issues, cannot possibly be so ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid as to desire war with China and Russia at this moment in our military's history.

And I say this, because at this point in its history, our Military does not have the weaponry; the troop strength; the manufacturing, or the money to ensure a positive outcome to a conventional war with either, or both countries.

Which means mushroom clouds, Mr. President.

5.2 million children at famine risk in Yemen: charity

More than five million children are at risk of famine in Yemen as the ongoing war causes food and fuel prices to soar across the country, charity Save the Children warned Wednesday.

Disruption to supplies coming through the embattled Red Sea port of Hodeida could "cause starvation on an unprecedented scale," the British based NGO said in a new report.

Save the Children said an extra one million children now risk falling into famine as prices of food and transportation rise, bringing the total to 5.2 million.

A Saudi-led alliance intervened in 2015 in a bid to bolster the president, accusing Iran of backing the Huthis, but nearly 10,000 people have since been killed.

Deadly clashes resumed around the Huthi-held port city of Hodeida following the collapse of talks in Geneva earlier this month.

"Millions of children don't know when or if their next meal will come," said Helle Thorning-Schmidt, CEO of Save the Children International.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congrats, my brother and sister Americans; isn't it wonderful to understand that you live in a country aiding and abetting Saudi war crimes in Yemen?!?
Mattis says US is still backing Saudi coalition in Yemen war, as lawmakers fume

Yes, I said it; the blockade of Yemen's major ports, preventing food from getting in to innocent non-combatants, are blocked, and now that the Saudis are in position to take over the last port city in Yemen, Hodeidah, the situation will simply get more catastrophic.

And the US government and military are complicit here, up to their collective necks. And while our alleged representatives are allegedly "fuming" about this, they do nothing to stop it, because Tel Aviv and AIPAC want to see the Saudis "win", no matter how horrific the price in blood is for the Yemeni people.

DESPITE PLEDGE NOT TO, GERMANY APPROVES SALE OF WEAPONS TO SAUDI ARABIA

With Saudi Arabia forever escalating their war in Yemen, the growing calls by human rights groups to stop selling them arms with which to commit war crimes are struggling to compete with the vast sums of money the Saudis are offering for those arms.

Germany is the latest to renege on promises to ban weapons sales for use in the Yemen War, announcing Wednesday that the Economy Minister has greenlit a new round of artillery systems for sale to the Saudis.

The systems are designed for precise counterattack, and are clearly being bought explicitly to use in Yemen. Yet the Merkel government, as part of its coalition deal, announced a full export ban to “any sides fighting in Yemen,” including the Saudis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congratulations, German Prime Minister Merkel, for committing the German people to yet more assassination and genocide of the Yemeni people, and what you have done here looks like this (and no, these images are NOT photoshopped):

images: Yemeni children killed, courtesy of US/enabled Saudi bombing raids over their country

Images: Yemeni children starving to death, courtesy of US-enabled Saudi blockades of Yemeni ports

Images: Yemeni children dying of (potentially weaponized) cholera

Glad you're morally happy with this choice, Prime Minister Merkel, and German arms makers are laughing themselves all the way to the bank from the coming wanton destruction of Yemeni lives by the Saudis.

US Diplomats Involved In Trafficking Of Human Blood And Pathogens For Secret Military Program

The US Embassy to Tbilisi transports frozen human blood and pathogens as diplomatic cargo for a secret US military program. Internal documents, implicating US diplomats in the transportation of and experimenting on pathogens under diplomatic cover were leaked to me by Georgian insiders. According to these documents, Pentagon scientists have been deployed to the Republic of Georgia and have been given diplomatic immunity to research deadly diseases and biting insects at the Lugar Center – the Pentagon biolaboratory in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi.

This military facility is just one of the many Pentagon biolaboratories in 25 countries across the world. They are funded by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) under a $ 2.1 billion military program – Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP), and are located in former Soviet Union countries such as Georgia and Ukraine, the Middle East, South East Asia and Africa.

WHY JOHN BOLTON REALLY HATES THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT

Countries with nothing to fear do not fear the ICC.

Countries with nothing to fear do not fear the ICC. The United States and Israel are very afraid of the ICC. The murder of unarmed civilians is a war crime. So is torture. Israel’s indiscriminate bombing of densely-populated civilian areas, its half-century occupation of Palestinian territory and its construction and expansion of Jews-only settler colonies on Palestinian land are all also illegal under international law. Neither Israel nor the United States has joined the ICC. Other leading human rights violators, including North Korea, China, Saudi Arabia, Myanmar and Ethiopia, have either never joined or have withdrawn from the court.

Iran WARNING: US tells airlines not to fly through airspace as WW3 fears rise

The advisory also warns military activities linked to the bloody conflict in Syria have been ramped across Iran's airspace.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington are running high following Donald Trump’s controversial decision to pull out of the landmark Iran nuclear deal re-introduce economic sanctions last month.

Flight Service Bureau, which provides safety information on airspace to airlines, said "without seeming alarmist", the deteriorating relationship between the US and Iran must be taken into account when planning flights in Iran's airspace.

Washington Quietly Increases Lethal Weapons to Ukraine

For all of the loose (frequently hysterical) talk in Congress, the foreign policy community, and the news media about President Donald Trump’s alleged eagerness to appease Vladimir Putin, U.S. policy remains as confrontational as ever toward Russia.

Among other actions, the Trump administration has involved U.S. forces in NATO military exercises (war games) in Poland and other East European countries on Russia’s border, as well as in naval maneuvers in the Black Sea near Russia’s sensitive naval base at Sevastopol. Washington has even sent U.S. troops as participants in joint military exercises with Ukrainian forces—an act that Moscow considers especially provocative, given its tense relations with Kiev.

On no issue is the administration’s risky course more evident than its military policy toward Ukraine. Recent measures are certain to provoke Moscow further, and entangle the United States to an unwise extent with an extremely murky, ideologically troubling Ukrainian regime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To President Trump and his Cabinet; a war against Russia, into which the US Government and military, are nearly inextricably going to be drawn, is a very, very bad idea right now, and I say this because the US military doesn't have the money; the weapons; the troop strength; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

It would go nuclear, very very quickly, and the results of such a war could result in both horrific... and irreversible destruction of life as we know it on Planet Earth, with very few exceptions.

How the U.S. Does Propaganda

A typical example was on NPR’s “Weekend Edition Saturday,” on September 8th, when the program-host Scott Simon interviewed the Obama Administration’s diplomat Robert Malley, in a segment titled “What’s Next In The Syrian War: Idlib”.

Simon’s introduction said:

“After this weekend, the last contested region of Syria may come under ferocious attack. After more than seven years of fighting, the end of the Syrian war may come down to Idlib province. … It holds more than 3 million people, many of whom have been displaced. It’s been essentially a kind of dumping ground for those opposed to Bashar al-Assad’s regime and ISIS.”

Actually, there’s a factual problem with Simon’s lead-in there. Though I have seen official estimates of the population of Idlib ranging from 1.5 million to 3 million, I haven’t seen any of “more than 3 million people.” Mr. Simon is always happy to please his CIA minders, and might simply have gotten carried away in this interview.

US warplanes drop phosphorous bombs on Syria: Russia

American warplanes reportedly drop phosphorous bombs on a village in the eastern Syria province of Dayr al-Zawr.

Vladimir Savchenko, the chief of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Parties in Syria, announced the development on Sunday, Russia’s ITAR-TASS news agency reported.

"On September 8, 2018, two F-15 warplanes of the US air force delivered airstrikes on the settlement of Hajin with the use of phosphorous bombs. The airstrikes caused heavy fires. Information about casualties and damages is being verified," he said.

“The Russian reconciliations center warned that the use of munitions containing yellow phosphorus is prohibited by an additional protocol to the Geneva Convention of 1949,” the agency added.

TERRORISTS & WHITE HELMETS MET IN IDLIB TO PREP FOR FINAL STAGE FALSE FLAG CHEM ATTACK – RUSSIAN MOD

The Russian military has obtained “irrefutable” data that terrorist groups, including Jabhat an-Nusra, and the infamous White Helmets met in Idlib province on Sunday, according to the ministry’s spokesperson Igor Konashenkov.
The militants plotted the final scenarios for the chemical attacks that the Syrian army are expected to make in the cities of Jisr ash-Shugur, Serakab, Taftanaz and Sarmin, the Russian military revealed.

“Full readiness of all participants involved in the staging of the provocations is be ensured by the evening of September 8,”Konashenkov stated. He added that the terrorists are to receive a “special” signal from some “foreign friends of Syrian revolution” to launch the operation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, folks, today's date... is 8 September, and I would imagine that such a false flag is now imminent, either for tomorrow, insuring its maximum US presstitute coverage into next week, as the "justification" for a US attack, or shortly thereafter.

And when I am more inclined to believe the credibility of a foreign news outlet in English than I am the presstitutes and waresspondents here in the US's alleged "media", it is because I have been lied to too many times by the US media to find it at all credible, except occasionally for the weather or sports events' outcomes.

PENTAGON DESIGNING ‘GLIDE BREAKER’ INTERCEPTOR TO HIT ENEMY HYPERSONIC MISSILES – MEDIA

The Pentagon’s DARP agency has started to develop a hard-kill interceptor capable of hitting incoming hypersonic projectiles. The move follows news of Russia’s success in building top-class high-speed weapons.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has launched a high-tech project to develop an interceptor to shoot down enemy hypersonic missiles, the Drive reported.

In September, DARPA displayed concept art of the project, named 'Glide Breaker', which depicted features of a hard-kill, kinetic interceptor that is capable of engaging unpowered, high-speed vehicles, the Drive said. The agency’s Tactical Technology Office had previously hosted a gathering to explain the project and its requirements in July 2018, according to the media outlet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sounds great, but why are DARPA and our weapons manufacturers still trying to play "catch up" with this technology, rather than being ahead of the curve here?!/

China Sought To Intercept British Warship, Claiming Expanded Territorial Waters

In but the latest incident among a growing list that point to China's expanding claims on the South China Sea, a British naval ship carrying Royal Marines had a confrontation with Chinese military vessels as it reportedly traveled through international waters.

The incident took place near the Chinese-controlled Paracel Islands in South China Sea, and while the UK claims its ship stayed only in recognized international waters, China's foreign ministry is disputing that claim, calling the British navy's actions a "provocation".

Reuters reports of the disputed incident:

The HMS Albion, a 22,000 ton amphibious warship carrying a contingent of Royal Marines, exercised its “freedom of navigation” rights as it passed near the Paracel Islands, two sources, who were familiar with the matter but who asked not to be identified, told Reuters.

Afghan troops to train in China, ambassador says

China will train Afghan troops on Chinese soil, Afghanistan’s ambassador to Beijing said, describing the military cooperation as an effort to fight al Qaeda and Islamic State militants bent on attacking China from its western neighbour.

Afghanistan has also requested that China provide Afghan security forces with combat helicopters, Ambassador Janan Mosazai told Reuters in an interview.

Beijing last month dismissed reports that Chinese troops would be stationed in its war-torn neighbour, after it agreed to help Afghanistan set up a “mountain brigade” in the rugged Wakhan Corridor linking the two countries.

“But yes, there will be some training required, obviously, and that will take place in China,” Mosazai said in the interview on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but did US Sec Def Mattis get the memo on this, or is the situation in Afghanistan so dire, that he dare not say a word against the deal?!?

Amputee Australian-Lebanese ringleader of plot to blow up an Etihad flight from Sydney to Abu Dhabi is being held in a secret US jail in Iraq

An alleged Islamic State commander who is accused of planning to blow up a plane last year is being held by American forces at a secret military base in Iraq.

As the alleged ringleader of the plot, Tarek Khayat, is accused of conspiring with his three Lebanese-Australian brothers to blow up an Etihad Airways flight as it left Sydney on July 15 last year.

News Corp has investigated into the whereabouts of Khayat, whose family gave him up following their arrests in Australia.

The investigation found that the alleged ringleader has been secretly held in isolation by American military forces at an unnamed base.

Since being there, they have interrogated him in regards to his role as a commander of an Islamic State unit that plotted attacks in the west.

News Corp claim that Khayat has been intensely interrogated by the soldiers, and has since lost a leg, is suffering from lung cancer, and has given up names of foreign fighters and Islamic State members.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this man has been tortured to the point where he will say ANYTHING in order to get the torture to stop, and these "confessions" may be used as the "justification" for a coming US/Israeli war against Lebanon as well, to insure "regime change" here also, to insure access to Lebanese oil, and that Israel will have full access to the Litani River, which is just 5 kilometers away from the "boundary-fluid" Israeli border.

Again, I would like to politely point out that when the US military tortures, or outsources torture, this makes a complete mockery of our alleged reverence for the rule of law, humanitarian treatment of prisoners, and gives countries which don't particularly like the US, carte blanche to do the same to American citizens or military personnel.

Please chew on that last bit for a while, if you think that torture is ever justified.

Also, remember the German genius of interrogation of US and British prisoners during World War II; the guy's name was Hanns Scharff,The Story of Hanns Scharff and he got the information he needed through kindness and interest, never hurting anybody. In fact, he was so revered because of his humanitarian care of the prisoners under his watch, that he was invited by the US military to teach his interrogation techniques to American interrogators.

Marine Corps F-35Bs Have Arrived Off the Coast of Africa For The Very First Time

For the first time ever, U.S. Marine Corps F-35Bs Joint Strike Fighters are on an operational deployment in the Gulf of Aden, bringing them the closest they've ever been to conflict zones in Iraq and Syria, Yemen, and Somalia. The stealthy jets and their pilots set to join thousands of other U.S. Navy sailors and Marines for a two-week training exercise while they're in the region, but there's still no indication they are headed for actual combat, at least not yet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I love that last sentence.

Translation; these US troops are being pre-positioned for potential strikes against Yemen, Syria, and Iraq.

A great deal can happen in two weeks; unfortunately, the White House has made a declaration that US troops will be on Syrian soil "indefinitely.

U.S. targets Syria oil delivery networks with new sanctions

The U.S. Treasury Department said on Thursday it was imposing sanctions on four people and five entities it said facilitated petroleum shipments and financing to the Syrian government.

It said in a statement the sanctions targeted Muhammad al-Qatirji and his trucking company, which it said facilitated fuel trade between the Syrian government and Islamic State militants.

Qatirji has close relations with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government and has worked directly with Islamic State, which has been driven out of much of the Syrian territory it once controlled, to provide it oil products, the statement said.

Also targeted by sanctions was a fuel-procurement network that operates in Syria, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates to secure deliveries to Syria, the statement said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...murderous Assad regime.."?!?!?

Treasury Secretary Mnuchin, a word, sir: please prove this, irrefutably, with verifiable facts.

Because otherwise, all I hear from you, when you make, or publish, such a statement, is the battle cry before the invasion of Iraq, which claimed to the American people, and the world, that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, which, of course, proved to be a baldfaced lie, to get the American people to sign on to the invasion/occupation of Iraq, to control its oil.

And we have seen just how well that has gone of late; a completely Anti-US Prime Minister has just been elected, Muktada Al Sadr, and we have Shiite militias shooting up the green zone.

On top of that, in terms of Syria, the US presence is perilously close to where Russian officials claim that there will be campaigns to rid Idlib of terrorists.

Secretary Mnuchin, can you honestly sit there with a straight face, and tell the American people that the US is really ready to go to war with Russia over Syria, when you know, or should know, that our Military doesn't have the money, the troop strength, the weaponry or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a war with Russia?!?

I challenge you to say that out loud, Mr. Secretary, for all the American people to hear.

After all, it won't be your kids or grandkids, killed or maimed for life, in order for the US government to control Syria's oil, right?!?

Navy's F-35C Suffers 1st Major Mishap, Costing Millions in Damages

Two Navy fighter jets were damaged during an aerial refueling exercise off the coast of Virginia late last month, including an F-35C participating in its first round of operational tests aboard an aircraft carrier.

The F-35C was receiving fuel from an F/A-18F Super Hornet off the coast of Virginia on Aug. 23 when debris from an aerial-refueling basket was ingested into the Joint Strike Fighter jet's engine intake, said Lt. Travis Callaghan, a spokesman for Naval Air Forces.

The mishap led to engine damage for the F-35C, assigned to the California-based "Rough Riders" with Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 125. While rare, Callahan said parts of refueling baskets being sucked into an engine's intake are the most common form of non-bird foreign object or debris strikes in the Navy's tactical aviation fleet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The F-35 was released for service on December 5th, 2006.

And the question I must ask, is why, after 12 years of horrific technical foul-ups, bleeps, and blunders, not to mention cost overruns from here to eternity, can LOCKHEED MARTIN'S engineers not get the damned thing fixed?!?

Is it their very generous contributions to both sides of the Aisle, for Presidential and Congressional races, which hold LOCKHEED MARTIN "harmless and indemnified" over the lack of progress in really, and intelligently fixing the litany of known bugs in the F 35's systems?!?

It is question which We, the American Taxpayers, need to be asking, particularly right now, when it appears that our weapons design and manufacturing companies have blown any overweening competitive edge we might have had, compared to Russia and China's weapons designers.

Folks, this is a dangerously nasty place for the US military to be, particularly in light of the fact that it may be flirting with war with Russia and Iran in Syria in the very near future.

As those of you who read this blog understand, I loathe the concept of war as a solution to this country's geopolitical problems; but when that happens, to protect our men and women in the military, our weaponry manufacturers have an obligation to give them the best they can; Lockheed Martin has failed our military miserably with the F-35, and should be working 24/7 to correct these flaws.

Van Dongen: Why Africa Faces The Biggest Threat Of Ebola Explosion

We warned the Ugandan government that Ebola will enter in a certain region in the North East of Uganda under the disguise of so-called European proclamation that opposition armed forces will not allow WHO, UNHCR and Europe to interfere in the Ebola outbreak.

History of Ebola and Crimean Congo Haemorrhagic Virus
Scientists studying viral disease agents in the laboratory for biowarfare purposes and cure against it have become infected in Russia, United States, Crimea, Tajikistan, Philippines, Germany, Former Yugoslavia, United Kingdom, Netherlands, South Africa many decades ago.

A similar accident with Ebola had reportedly occurred at the US Army’s biodefense laboratory at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Maryland, where the Ebola virus was invented, but the researcher involved didn’t acquire the disease. This incident is not listed on the CDC’s list of confirmed outbreaks, perhaps because the researcher didn’t develop antibodies.

Declassified Docs Reveal How Pentagon Aimed to Nuke USSR and China Into Oblivion

Plans for a nuclear war devised by the US Army in the 1960s considered decimating the Soviet Union and China by destroying their industrial potential and wiping out the bulk of their populations, newly declassified documents show.

A review of the US general nuclear war plan by the Joint Staff in 1964, which was recently published by George Washington University’s National Security Archive project, shows how the Pentagon studied options “to destroy the USSR and China as viable societies.”

The review, conducted two years after the Cuban Missile Crisis, devises the destruction of the Soviet Union “as a viable society” by annihilating 70 percent of its industrial floor space during pre-emptive and retaliatory nuclear strikes.

The Day U.S. Military Supremacy Publicly Ended

Military Budgets

The U.S. Military budget for FY 2019 will be $716 Billion. Add $70 Billion for Homeland Security, $70 Billion for the nation’s 16 intelligence agencies, $186 Billion for veterans’ benefits, and the U.S. spends more than a trillion dollars a year on “defense.” Two trillion dollars covers yearly mandatory expenses for social security, Medicare, Medicaid, and interest on the federal debt, leaving less than one trillion out of the country’s $4 Trillion budget left for everything else.

Russia’s military budget is $61 B a year, less than 10 percent of the U.S. military budget and less than that of Saudi Arabia.

Given the above facts, Russia would appear to be no match against the U.S. militarily.

Netanyahu’s credo, ‘weak are slaughtered, strong survive,’ echoes Hitler

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered a speech Wednesday at the Dimona nuclear plant, the site and symbol of Israel’s nuclear weapon capacity, and warned Iran and other regional rivals against taking Israel on.

The weak crumble, are slaughtered and are erased from history while the strong, for good or for ill, survive. The strong are respected, and alliances are made with the strong, and in the end peace is made with the strong…

But our enemies know very well what Israel is capable of doing. They are familiar with our policy. Whoever tries to hurt us—we hurt them

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said Iran was being “threatened with atomic annihilation by a warmonger standing next to an actual nuclear weapons factory.”

Netanyahu’s comments were widely derided on twitter as fascistic. Some quoted Adolf Hitler’s speech in Munich in 1923 at a time when he was gaining a following:

‘No place for the weak’: Netanyahu threatens Iran & Syria at nuclear reactor ceremony

Israel will oppose Iranian presence in Syria with the same zeal it worked to destroy the nuclear deal, and hurt “whoever tries to hurt us,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said as he dedicated a nuclear reactor facility.

The Middle East is “no place for the weak. The weak crumble, are slaughtered and are erased from history while the strong, for good or for ill, survive,” Netanyahu said on Wednesday, at the ceremony to rename a nuclear research facility in the Negev after the former Prime Minister Shimon Peres. “The strong are respected, and alliances are made with the strong, and in the end peace is made with the strong.”

Israel threatens to use nuclear weapons to ‘wipe out’ its enemies

Standing next to a secretive Israeli atomic reactor earlier in the week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened to “wipe out” his enemies. In a speech that many will see as the Jewish state breaking its long silence over the possession of nuclear weapons, the Likud leader warned that it has the means to destroy its enemies.

“Those who threaten to wipe us out put themselves in a similar danger, and in any event will not achieve their goal,” he said on Wednesday during a ceremony to rename the complex, near the desert town of Dimona. The site has long been suspected to be the location where Israel has been developing nuclear weapons.

Iran hit back by describing Netanyahu as a “warmonger”. The threat “atomic annihilation” against the Islamic Republic was denounced as “beyond shameless in the gall”.

FALLOUT: WWII VETS EXPLAIN DEVASTATING EFFECTS OF NUCLEAR BLASTS

Of the nearly 20,000 soldiers who witnessed the detonations, only a few are still alive and the awesome devastation they beheld still haunts them to this day, both psychologically and physically.

“When the flash hit you, you could see the x-rays of your hands through your closed eyes,” he said. “Then the heat hit you, and that was as if someone my size had caught fire and walked through me. It was an experience that was unearthing. It was so strange. There were guys with bruises and broken legs. We couldn’t believe it. To say it was frightening is an understatement. I think it all shocked us into silence.”

As MSM & Hollywood Quackery Continues, U.S. Government Quietly Prepares for Nuclear War

The MSM (Mainstream Media) and Hollywood forms a conglomerated consortium of Marxists, Socialists, creepy-refugee professors from Woodstock, and wanna-be left-wing revolutionaries. They have two different paths. The MSM forces non-news down the throat of the public while decrying the true news in the alternative media. Hollywood is shaping the formation of the public consciousness and forcing a paradigm shift (Overton window principle), a shift to the left through popular culture, film, television, and the music industry. Both of them have one end objective in mind: the dissolution of the United States, and the destruction of its borders, language, religions, culture, and society as a whole in all of its forms.

Retired Green Beret: Was Congo's Ebola 'Bungle-In-The-Jungle' A Planned Mishap?

Malthusian theory holds that depopulation (or zero population growth) is a necessity to control a species (namely humanity) that reproduces and consumes natural resources without limits. This is a “New Age” mantra adopted early on by Communists as far back as Marx and Lenin. The ball has been carried successively by Edward House and Woodrow Wilson, and further exacerbated by such “gems” as Kissinger, Bill Gates, Al Gore, and so forth. Much of the public and almost all of the youth (a recent poll taken showed young people prefer Socialism to Capitalism) have fallen for this mantra.

The “problem” for them is how to push it along quickly: war is one answer, and disease is another.

Terrorists In Syria Receive Chemicals, Victims, UK Training For Upcoming False Flag Chemical Attack

By Brandon Turbeville

History repeats itself and, sometimes, it doesn’t even need generation gaps to do so. In the modern-day West, it only needs a space of a few days or weeks. This is why the US, UK, and French governments feel so confident in their ability to launch airstrikes against Syria for the third time under the Trump administration on the basis of false chemical weapons claims...

Britain Prepares For War Against Russia

The headline in the UK newspaper the Daily Mail on August 7 encapsulated much that is paranoid in sad modern Britain. It read “Russian warships pass through English Channel as Putin's armed forces ratchet up pressure on the Royal Navy.”

But this dreadful state of affairs means nothing to those who lack for nothing — which includes politicians of the governing Conservative Party who demand that more taxpayers’ money must be spent on military hardware. The previous defence minister, Michael Fallon (who had to resign because he was found out to have indulged in some sexual shenanigans), told the BBC last year that “we will be adding to defence, there will be new equipment and the budget will grow every year” and the present one, Gavin Williamson (the man who said that Russia should “go away and shut up”), demanded in June that Britain increase its annual military spending by £20 billion, or about 25 billion dollars.

THE FUTURE IS HERE! RUSSIA SUCCESSFULLY TESTS EXOSUIT ENABLING WEARER TO SHOOT MACHINE GUN 1-HANDED

The passive exoskeleton is already part of the Russian Army’s Ratnik (warrior), or ‘future combat system’, which also includes a range of surveillance, communications, and defensive equipment. The active exoskeleton may become part of Ratnik by 2025, according to Military-Scientific Committee Chair of the Ground Forces Aleksandr Romanyuta.

An exoskeleton is an external skeleton-like structure that follows the shape of the wearer’s body and partially encases it. It has joints and other mechanisms allowing it to strengthen the body’s natural movements.

‘Wearable robots’ are being developed worldwide for both military and civilian use. Medical exoskeletons could assist the movement of disabled or injured patients. Robotic suits could also allow construction workers to lift heavier loads.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is obviously, the result of some brilliant engineering by the Russians; but I sincerely wish that the Russians, the Chinese, and the American engineers were using all their pooled brilliance, to make life better for all people of the world, rather than using it for ever more lethal, and more dangerous, WMDS.

World War 3 fears: Russia threaten NUCLEAR WEAPONS to Syria in response to US sanctions

Among such measures, the official said the deployment of Russian tactical nukes in countries such as Syria, the use of gold-linked cryptocurrencies for Russian arms exports and the suspension of a number of treaties with the US – such as non-proliferation of missile technologies.

Mr Gutenev said: "I believe that now Russia has to draw its own ‘red lines.’

RESEARCH PAPER SHOWS MILITARIZED SWAT TEAMS DON'T MAKE COPS -- OR THE PUBLIC -- ANY SAFER

A study has been released confirming what many have suspected: militarization of law enforcement doesn't make communities safer, has zero effect on officer safety, and is rarely deployed as advertised when agencies make pitches for the acquisition of military gear.

The most frequent recipient of military tools and training are SWAT teams. Professor Jonathan Mummolo's research -- published by the National Academy of Sciences -- gained unprecedented access to SWAT deployment numbers, thanks to a public records request and a Maryland state law requiring documentation of every SWAT raid performed. (That law was allowed to expire by legislators who apparently felt it provided too much transparency and accountability.)

MASSIVE RUSSIAN-CHINESE JOINT WAR GAMES WILL FEATURE NUCLEAR EXERCISES

Over the past half year the West has increasingly taken note of the significantly heightened pace of both Chinese and Russian military spending and surprising leaps forward in terms defense tech advances.

Even when Chinese or Russian systems fail, as with recent news of a nuclear-powered cruise missile touted by Putin as having "unlimited range" but now apparently lost at the bottom of the sea, Western press takes notice, and a number of Pentagon officials have also warned especially of rapidly advancing Chinese systems.

Increasingly, the two powers are cooperating more directly as with Russia's upcoming military games, said to be the largest such exercise since the Soviet Union, where China is set to participate my sending a mass contingency of elite troops.

US officials need to take note of how the integration of Chinese and Russian troop strength and weaponry, makes a stronger fighting force than each nation could offer on its own.

The War Being Hidden From You: Yemeni Tragedy in Three Photos

Fast forward to the present when tragedy struck. That’s the middle photo. On August 9th, the monstrous, blood-drenched House of Saud bombed a school bus full of children in Dahyan as it passed through a market back to summer camp where Yemeni youths were learning and memorizing the Holy Qur’an. At least 51 children–most of them under 10–were slaughtered and more than 79 others were wounded in the massacre carried out by the Saudi “royals” with US-ZOG-provided armaments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the kind of US-enabled, Saudi genocide which has become Yemen's "new normal."

And as a Christian Pacifist Activist, I am very ashamed of my country for doing this.

I wish Mike and I had the money, and the youth, to immigrate to a country which doesn't engage in war crimes; unfortunately, we are both too old, and too broke, to even be considered.

But it is going to take more than shame, and frustration, to change the equation here.

This is why I am asking every Rivero's Ranger out there, to peacefully, logically, and non-threateningly, call the offices of their alleged Congressional Representatives, and ask them for this carnage to end; and that continued Congressional support for this Yemeni genocide will be an election year breaker for them, particularly those up for re-election this November.

US Diplomats Told to Promote US Weapons Sales

Diplomatic priorities for the US can be quite complicated, and sometimes inscrutable. One constant high priority, however, is selling weapons made by America’s major arms-makers to other countries. Though private companies, they increasingly find the US diplomatic corps working as their sales team.

This represents official determination to see the US remain the world’s largest exporter of weapons. This is a foregone conclusion with or without diplomats hectoring every other country to buy American, and attending weapons shows to push US products.

Yet Russia does continue to have some successful segments of the arms market, particularly the air defense systems. While military officials believe Russian sales are just going to happen sometimes, the Trump Administration has had fits when nations like Turkey, despite all the diplomatic pressure, choose to buy Russian.

China And Russia Are Building ‘SHIP-KILLER’ Missiles - Mac Slavo

As China and Russia continue to build up their arsenal of “ship-killer” missiles, the United States Navy apparently has plans to counter the weapons. Officials have said that the Navy and numerous NATO partners are firing a new, high-tech ship defense weapon that can identify, track, and attack maneuvering anti-ship missiles.

Using an active seeker which enables the missile to change course in flight, is the method of “attack” against the anti-ship missiles of the Chinese and the Russians, service officials have said, according to National Interest.

The Evolved Sea Sparrow Missile Block II, or ESSM, is a new version of an existing Sea Sparrow weapons system currently protecting aircraft carriers, destroyers, cruisers, amphibious assault ships and other vessels against anti-ship missiles and other surface and airborne short-range threats to ships.

HOW THE MEDIA KEEPS AMERICANS IN THE DARK ABOUT THE SLAUGHTER IN YEMEN

Moments later every single one of these kids were killed, vaporized by a Saudi fired missile.

This atrocity took place on 9 August, leaving 51 dead, 40 of whom were children, with most victims under the age of 10, while another 77 were seriously injured, according to the International Red Cross.

The US Department of Defense has tried to downplay the United States role in what must surely constitute a war crime and/or a crime against humanity by either arguing it’s still investigating the matter or by disingenuously minimizing its involvement.

“We may never know if the munition [used] was one that the US sold to them,” Army Maj. Josh Jacques, a spokesperson for US Central Command, told Vox. “We don’t have a lot of people on the ground.”

Well, we do know who sold Saudi Arabia the missile, and there are plenty of Yemeni journalists and international aid agencies in Yemen “on the ground.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US-enabled war Saudi war crimes in Yemen never seem to end, three years on, and therein lies the problem.

But the Saudi genocide against Yemeni children neither started, nor ended with this incident. Let's take a look at the following (warning: very graphic) images of Yemeni children being killed by Saudi bombing; kids dying of starvation, courtesy of the US/Saudi blockage of Yemeni ports; and a huge outbreak of cholera, possibly weaponised.

Images: Yemeni children assassinated by Saudi bombing runs

Images: Yemeni children starving due to Saudi port blockade

Images: Yemeni children sickened and dying from cholera, perhaps weaponized

These are, obviously, images that the US Deep State absolutely does not want its citizens seeing, as they don't want people questioning the rightness of this genocide, in light of the fact that the US government is abetting/encouraging it here in Yemen; however, as a Christian pacifist activist, and an American who cares about the future of her country, I find that I must bear witness to these acts, done in our names, and with our tax dollars.

Folks, we need to be paying attention here, and having a peaceful, national conversation as to whether such acts are really in the best interests of the future of this country.

I for one, say no.

Who is with me, here, please, and who will have the courage to contact your alleged Congressional Representatives, and tell them that supporting this continued genocide in Yemen is an election breaker?!?

Did U.S. Officials Already Admit Israel has Nukes?

IRmep's lawsuit against the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Energy revealed a damaging doctrine. These agencies believe they can fire, prosecute and jail any federal employee that releases information about Israel's nuclear weapons program, because—they claim—it is "classified national security information."

But can that dubious claim hold up in federal court?

IRmep's cross-claim for summary judgement provides evidence that it's too late for all that. While courts unfortunately discount eyewitness testimony such as that provided by Mordechai Vanunu, they do recognize official statements by members of the executive branch as authoritative.

Fox News on the Web should be deeply embarrassed by Perry Chiaramonte and Alex Diaz’s August 8 article “Russia’s Nuclear Arsenal: All Bark and No Bite?”

“Amid fears of a new Cold War, an examination of Russia’s nuclear arsenal by Fox News shows that there may be no need to worry about a devastating nuclear attack,” Mr. Chiaramonte and Mr. Diaz write chirpily.

Mr. Chiaramonte and Mr. Diaz clearly know nothing about Russia’s nuclear capabilities or the fundamentals of nuclear strategy. Their article is blissfully uninformed by the findings of the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community’s Nuclear Posture Review.

Governmental lying by omission involves intentionally leaving out important facts to foster broad popular misconceptions.

A new lawsuit filed by the director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy aims to put an end to some 40 years of the US government violating its own International Security Assistance and Arms Export Control Act of 1976, related to providing military aid to clandestine nuclear weapons power.

In this case the focus is on Israel, which is widely acknowledged to have a substantial nuclear weapons arsenal, but is not a member of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Since 1976, the US has provided some $234 billion in military aid to Israel, with a new record deal expected to be finalized soon.

Saudis Spinning the Optics of Dead Schoolchildren

Why do Americans help manage their PR? This week in particular, our role has been shameful.

It has been a trying couple of weeks for Saudi Arabia. First, a tweet from an account associated with the Saudi government appeared to threaten Canada with a 9/11-style attack if they continued to “stick their nose where it doesn’t belong.” The infographic within the tweet featured an Air Canada jet flying towards the Toronto skyline.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, the Saudis, with US "guidance" and mid-air refueling, bomb hospitals, schools, and school buses all the time in Yemen; in their minds, the assassination of innocent school children is utterly no big deal.

To paraphrase the American poet Gertrude Stein, "A genocide... is a genocide.. is a genocide.", pure and simple.

And with a genocide, you kill everyone you possibly can kill, right?!? Schoolkids, women, and the medically fragile elderly; all grist for the US-enabled Saudi death machine, right?!?

I don't know about you, but the cold, hard reality that the US government and military are enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen, troubles me very deeply.

Unfortunately, Mike and I are too broke, and too old, to take up residence in a country with the kind of moral compass which would never allow such a thing to happen.

And given that the Yemeni Houthi rebels have proven so resilient over the last 3 years, I have to wonder just why the B.O.Y. (AKA the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Saudi Arabia's Prince bin Salman) has not ordered a complete carpet bombing of the country; I am quite sure that his BFF, Amerika's Merchant of Death in Chief, President Trump, would authorize Raytheon's selling him thousands more bombs in a heartbeat if he wanted them... with which to kill more school children; women, and the medically fragile elderly.

And we have a companion piece to this, also courtesy of antiwar.com:

US OFFICIALS WARN OF "DISTURBING" RUSSIAN SPACE WEAPONS AT UN CONFERENCE

US officials at a UN conference expressed “deep suspicion” of Russia for its advancement in the creation of “space weapons.”

Assistant Secretary of State Yleem Poblete called Russia’s developments “disturbing.”

Russian officials dismissed the claims as “unfounded and slanderous,” saying they want to avoid a new arms race in outer space. US officials say a new Russian satellite is acting “abnormal” and they are alleging that to be evidence of weaponry.

In reality, the US interest in hyping Russian space weapons is fairly transparently an attempt to bring new attention to the militarization of space, as President Trump has been very keen to establish an enormous Space Force, and failed to get Congressional funding.

Selling the Space Force to the public and the legislature is contingent on it being used for something.

The only thing "disturbing" to the US government, is that the US military, apparently, doesn't have these alleged weapons yet.

LOCKHEED MARTIN AWARDED OVER $3 BILLION IN GOVT CONTRACTS IN JUST TWO DAYS, AS MILITARY FRETS ABOUT RUSSIAN, CHINESE ADVANCES

The U.S. Air Force announced within the span of two days earlier this week that it had awarded over $3.3 billion in contracts to U.S. weapons giant Lockheed Martin. The first of these contracts, totaling $480 million, was announced on Monday and tasked Lockheed with designing a new “hypersonic” missile. The new missile, known as the Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW), is the second “hypersonic” missile under development at Lockheed, as the U.S. Air Force awarded a $928 million contract to the company this past April to develop the Hypersonic Conventional Strike Weapon (HCSW) program.

The second contract, totaling a sizable $2.9 billion, was awarded to Lockheed on Tuesday and tasks the company with creating three missile-warning satellites, with each satellite set to cost just under $1 billion each.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem isn't that the Russians and Chinese military have these weapons; the problem is the US defense industry has felt no compulsion to provide this country with the "edge" it needs to stay a step ahead of these Russian and Chinese weaponry developments.

Radioactive sheep boost claims of secret Israeli nuke test

Radioactive isotopes discovered by scientists in Australian sheep have added gravity to longstanding claims that a mysterious flash above the Indian Ocean 39 years ago was actually an illegal Israeli nuclear weapon test.

On September 22, 1979, US satellite Vela 6911 detected a ‘double flash’ near the Marion and Prince Edward Islands in the southern Indian Ocean. Ever since, there has been speculation that it was actually a nuclear weapon test carried out by Israel. According to the memoirs of then-US President Jimmy Carter, this was also the assumption of American generals who briefed him on the incident. The official position of the Israeli state is to neither confirm nor deny having a homegrown military nuclear program.

May, Hunt silent as UK's best arms customer kills dozens of children in Yemen bus attack

After a Saudi-led attack in Yemen killed and injured dozens of children, the public is again questioning London's arms sales to Riyadh. Officials have kept silent, helped by the MSM which fails to question the UK's involvement.
According to the International Committee of the Red Cross, the body count from Thursday's attack sits at 51, including 40 children. Seventy-nine others were also injured in the attack, 56 of whom were children. It is understood that the bus was bringing children home from a picnic when it was attacked.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Hey, these kids were just "collateral damage", not real people, and fully deserved to have the crap bombed out of them with British munitions!!" - Official #12 Downing Street spokes-slush.

Empty Boasts Aside the West Has No Real Defense Against Russia's Doomsday Torpedo

US and British navies could counter Russia’s nuclear-powered autonomous torpedo, Poseidon, by using undersea sensors and anti-submarine aircraft, writes Covert Shores website. But is this really a viable tactic?

The development of the Poseidon unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV), originally known as ‘Status-6’, was first mentioned in November 2015. Western media later dubbed the submarine drone a doomsday weapon.

Can the US Keep Lying About Israel’s Nukes?

Backers of the gag order hope to undermine informed public debate about nuclear proliferation in the Middle East, ongoing illicit transfers of know-how, material and technology from the US to Israel, to maintain a spotlight on Iran as the region’s nuclear proliferation threat as well as quell debate about whether the US is truly a champion of nuclear non-proliferation. But the overarching purpose of WNP-136, curiously titled "Guidance on Release of Information Relating to the Potential for an Israeli Nuclear Capability," is even more nefarious. The core objective behind WNP-136 is to perpetuate a single massive and ongoing violation of US law.

Since the Symington & Glenn Amendments became law in the mid-1970s, all administrations have faced public pressure to explain why the US gives away the lion’s share of the foreign aid budget to a country has long been known to have a disqualifying secret nuclear weapons program.

Expert Debunks Hiroshima, Nagasaki Myths on 73rd Anniversary of Atomic Bombings

"And the myth became that a million American lives were saved by dropping the bombs. That was not true. The truth is, the bombs were dropped to send a message to the Soviet Union where to get off. Billions of dollars in 1945 money had been spent on that [atomic] project, and the bombs were dropped to fulfill an experiment as well, to show some return on the so-called investment. If those billions of dollars had been spent on ships, tanks and guns in the US military instead of atomic bombs, would the war have ended sooner because of that?" Kemps asked.

Another common myth is that the bombs ended World War II, Kamps said.

An American investigative Journalist Confirms The US Government’s Biological Weapons

According to a scientist who worked alongside Basson under the apartheid government, this blacks-only bioweapon was to attach onto melanin (darker skinned people have more melanin in their skin). Citing his security agreement with the government, the scientist agreed to speak under conditions of anonymity and stated he believed that Basson did, in fact, create this weapon.

Other sources indicate that this bioweapon was deployed on a grand scale, having been leaked into processed food. A confidential source in US intelligence stated that the spiking epidemic of the “silent killers” of hypertension and diabetes in people of color is due to the success of Basson’s research and subsequent deployment of a genetic weapon which attaches onto melanin and was leaked into the food supply.

Nagasaki: The Worst War Crime Ever

It was just short of eleven in the morning of a mild late summer day. The streets of the city were teeming with people going to work, while children played in the parks and in the medical college, professors were lecturing to their students on medicine and surgery.

High over the city, above the layer of clouds in the sky, a silver aeroplane was flying along on four throbbing motors. The crew had already been in the air for many hours and was growing tense and weary. They had flown to another city, where they were to deliver their cargo, but that had been obscured by smog and cloud, so they had come to this, their secondary destination. Getting low on fuel and experiencing some engine trouble, they were looking for a break in the cloud cover so that they could see where to release their cargo, a gift for the two hundred thousand people below.

A sudden hole opened in the cloud cover, and the B-29 started its bombing run.

Harry Truman and the Atomic Bomb

The most spectacular episode of Harry Truman's presidency will never be forgotten but will be forever linked to his name: the atomic bombings of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, and of Nagasaki three days later. Probably around two hundred thousand persons were killed in the attacks and through radiation poisoning; the vast majority were civilians, including several thousand Korean workers. Twelve US Navy fliers incarcerated in a Hiroshima jail were also among the dead.1

Great controversy has always surrounded the bombings. One thing Truman insisted on from the start was that the decision to use the bombs, and the responsibility it entailed, was his. Over the years, he gave different, and contradictory, grounds for his decision. Sometimes he implied that he had acted simply out of revenge. To a clergyman who criticized him, Truman responded testily,

Remembering the Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Perilous Times

The consensus among US historians is that the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki — in addition to being moral abominations against civilians — were also opposed by senior military leaders, including General (later President) Eisenhower, who did not see them as politically necessary.

While making no excuses for Japanese militarism and imperial aggressions, we should remember that in the months prior to the US’s atomic bombings, the Japanese government attempted to surrender on terms the US ultimately accepted after the atomic bombings: unconditional surrender with the exception of the emperor remaining on his throne. According to my own research for my book, most senior US military leaders thought that the bombings were unnecessary and wrong.

UN ACCUSES CHINA & RUSSIA OF DPRK OF SANCTIONS VIOLATIONS IN NEW REPORT

According to the United States, the Democratic Peoples’ Republic of Korea (DPRK or North Korea) is violating United Nations Security Council (UNSC) restrictions concerning their nuclear testing and missile development programs. These accusations come from a six-month report released last week by the UN which claims Pyongyang is violating restrictions on both of these programs according to new intelligence gathered.

Besides the alleged violations of the UNSC restrictions on the DPRK’s arms development, Korea has also been accused of violating economic sanctions “through a massive increase in illicit ship-to-ship transfers of petroleum products, as well as through transfers of coal at sea during 2018.” The UNSC also claimed that the DPRK was assisting the governments of Syria with weapons as well as attempting to sell arms to the Ansarullah movement (Houthis) in Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if the Trump administration is about to do a "volte" (about-face) relative to North Korea, because it appears that what was promised by Kim Jung Un and his government at the Singapore Summit may well not be about to materialize, and definitely, at no point in time soon.

The timing of the release of these accusations is very interesting.
