US Special Forces Deployed with Al Qaeda in Idlib in False Flag Attack on Turkish Forces (updated)

Communications intercepts and intelligence from inside Turkish backed terror groups tell an interesting story. Americans are there, for the past 2 days, loads of cash, promises of US passports and families resettled in the US.

US forces are to set up ambushes and suicide bombings against Turkish outposts in Idlib in order to bring about an end to the truce negotiated in Moscow between Erdogan and Trump on March 5.

Whether video will be shot using captured Syrian uniforms may be possible. It is also rumored that Turkish officers, some under CIA/Gulen control, may take part as well.

Trump’s Engineered Crash: Massive Pump and Dump Over Deep State Bio-Engineered Pandemic Has Killed America

Trump didn't engineer this but he will take the blame,or so they hope. The Psyop continues according to plan.

The media, America and Europe, even Russia, has been in full censorship mode for weeks now. They, as with Trump and Gang, are shills for what we call the Kosher Nostra, a massive criminal conspiracy that has overwhelmed world governments through murder, blackmail and bribery.

They have been doing this since late antiquity, they have been caught many times, named and renamed, always in the shadows. From day one, we found them behind Donald Trump and those around him.

Keep It Simple and Question: Propaganda, Technology, and Coronavirus

Technology and technique, the technical way of thinking that undergirds it, are what we should fear most, not the will-o’-the-wisps marched out daily by the corporate mass media to create fear and panic. Those are ghost fears that should only frighten children.

But as I have written before, most Americans are children, living inside a doll’s house of illusions and delusions while government and intelligence forces and their mass media accomplices play with them through technological propaganda.

Italy quarantines 16 million people: “the effect proves the cause” Mar 8

Let’s go to NBC News for the word on what’s happening in Italy. March 8, 2020, “Coronavirus updates live: Million quarantined in Italy, as D.C. reports first case”. (see also this from Wall Street Journal)

This NBC piece, as so many others do, mixes and matches reports. Millions quarantined there, first case here. The tactic is meant to build up details of an overwhelming cascade of “proof”: the threat is real, the storm clouds have opened and the rain is falling.

Turkey threatens to use force against Syrian Army in northwest Syria

BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 A.M.) – Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said on Saturday that “a Russian military delegation will visit Ankara next week to discuss the ceasefire agreement in Idlib,” noting that “joint patrols between Russian and Turkish forces will begin on the M-4 International Road” starting on March 15th.

The Futility of Russian Deals with Erdogan

I am hearing bits and pieces that Erdogan is transferring terrorists to Ukraine.

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

The US, Israeli, and Turkish regime under Erdogan can never be trusted.

Time and again they agree to one thing, then go another way — falsely blaming others for their bad faith.

Numerous times before in Astana and Sochi, Erdogan agreed to establish a demilitarized zone in Idlib province Syria, free from jihadists.

Russia fulfilled its obligations. So did Syria, not Turkey by continuing to arm and otherwise support al-Nusra and likeminded terrorists in the province, along with giving them safe haven in Turkish territory.

Donbass and Syria – A Perfect Storm Approaching?

Suppose you were planning to start, or at least risk, a full scale multi-front war between superpowers, and you wanted to prepare your domestic situation as much as possible beforehand, without exposing or admitting your plan ahead of time.

The Capitalist Class, the Ruling Class, the Parasite Class has just about sucked the Earth dry. Humanity, the environment, the social web of the human community, the world economy, evolution itself, all are on their last legs, disintegrating before our eyes. And this criminal class would like nothing more than to overturn the table, cry “Havoc”, and go into hiding in their billion dollar super bunkers for a few generations while the Earth depopulates, and regenerates if it can.

Current Conflict In Syria Is Nothing New — Plan Goes Back To 1983

By Brandon Turbeville

While the majority of Americans have been focused on the spread of COVID-19, they may have missed the fact that Turkey has all but declared a war and invaded Syria. After having dispatched troops to the terrorist haven of Idlib, Syria as the Syrian military engaged in a massive push to liberate the region. Turkey has since come to the rescue of the embattled terrorists, launching drone attacks, airstrikes, and ground forces into Syrian territory.

Turkey established a number of “observation points,” that the Syrian military, during the process of liberation early on in the Battle of Idlib, surrounded. The Syrian military did not disturb these posts or harm any Turkish soldiers...

Natalie Maines has 'no regrets' on speaking out against the Iraq war in 2003 despite industry backlash... as Dixie Chicks celebrate upcoming release of their first album in 14 years

The Dixie Chicks paid a heavy price with an all-out industry backlash for comments made by lead singer Natalie Maines against President George W. Bush and the impending Iraq war in 2003.

And despite public protests against the band and being blacklisted from country music airwaves, Natalie Maines admitted in the April edition of Allure magazine that she has 'no regrets' about what she said during a concert in London 17 years ago.

The award-winning group (which also includes Martie Maguire and Emily Strayer) took a much needed break from the industry and is now returning to music in grand fashion with their first album in 14 years, Gaslighter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even if you loathe country music, please buy this album for someone you know who loves this genre; these ladies, for having had the courage to speak out when it was "unfashionable" to do so regarding the Iraq war, (and in fact, wrecked their career for 14 years), deserve this album to go "double platinum", or whatever jargon passes for highest selling these days.

Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman orders arrests of Saudi Arabia king's brother, an ex-crown prince and a cousin by masked black-clad guards for 'treason' as he consolidates his hold on power

Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz al Saud and Prince Mohammed bin Nayef arrested
Over plot to oust king and son, Prince Mohammed bin Salman, reports suggest
Mohammed bin Nayef had been crown prince before his title was taken away
King Salman put his son - Prince Mohammed bin Salman - first in line for throne.

The brother and nephew of Saudi Arabia's King Salman have been arrested over a plot to oust the king and his son, Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The detentions cast aside the last vestiges of potential opposition to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and come as the kingdom limits access to Islam's holiest sites in a highly sensitive move to contain the fast-spreading coronavirus.

Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, a brother of King Salman, and the monarch's nephew Prince Mohammed bin Nayef were accused of treason.

They were taken from their homes early on Friday by black-clad royal guards, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing unnamed sources.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; how long before these men get assassinated, and their families are imprisoned for life?!?

And will someone please remind me, about all the LOGICAL REASONS why Bin Salman is one of two of Trump's "BFFS forever" in the Middle East, the other being Israel's Bibi Netanyahu?!?

I am REALLY having a hard time with this, thank you.

THROUGH APPS, NOT WARRANTS, ‘LOCATE X’ ALLOWS FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT TO TRACK PHONES

U.S. law enforcement agencies signed millions of dollars worth of contracts with a Virginia company after it rolled out a powerful tool that uses data from popular mobile apps to track the movement of people's cell phones, according to federal contracting records and six people familiar with the software.

The product, called Locate X and sold by Babel Street, allows investigators to draw a digital fence around an address or area, pinpoint mobile devices that were within that area, and see where else those devices have traveled, going back months, the sources told Protocol.

They said the tool tracks the location of devices anonymously, using data that popular cell phone apps collect to enable features like mapping or targeted ads, or simply to sell it on to data brokers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is both a dangerous precedent, and yet another, painful example of the reality of how much we have morphed, as a society, from allegedly "Innocent until proven guilty" to a "Guilty until proven innocent, Code Napoleon Throwback law.

The Despicable USA – Theater of Dystopia. A Nation Run by Gangsters

These continuing egregious, lawless crimes around the globe result in the murder, maiming, and displacement of countless human beings in a number of countries. But these crimes are immune from impeachment because they enjoy overwhelming bi-partisan support. Additionally, the President has severely curtailed important life-preserving domestic programs and environmental protections designed to save the health and lives of US citizens, while the Congress yawns.

The obscene, insane annual $125 Trillion bi-partisan military intelligence budget, that includes 17 separate intelligence agencies, pre-empts development of any serious social and physical infrastructure.[3] And, such policy endangers everybody at home and abroad. Who really is the enemy of the US? What is clear is that the US is at war with the world.

Israeli Police Shoot Sponge-tipped Bullets at Two Palestinian Boys in East Jerusalem

In one of the incidents, a policeman is caught on tape inserting his weapon between the bars of a school gate and firing some five shots at children standing in the schoolyard.

Israeli Border Police officers fired sponge-tipped bullets at two Palestinian boys in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Isawiyah in two separate incident this week.

The shootings were allegedly carried out in violation of police regulations that prohibit firing at minors as well as at the upper body of individuals.

Sixteen-year-old Mohamed Atia was shot Monday while standing in his schoolyard and his arm was fractured.

Ten-year-old Fawzi Abid was shot Tuesday while standing on the balcony of his home when clashes erupted between youths in the neighborhood and the police, sustaining an injury to his hand that required medical attention.

The police said in response that youths have been hurling stones at police officer over the past few days, including from within the school grounds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Collective punishment... is a war crime; collective punishment against innocent kids?!? SBP (standard, brutal procedures against Palestinian kids), courtesy of the Israeli Border Police.

and I would almost be willing to bet real money on this; these officers were not removed, pending any kind of disciplinary hearing, but congratulated by their COs because of the targets they picked, salted with a lot of frustration that they couldn't assassinate these kids on site, as well as all the other Palestinian kids attending this school.

NEWS/ASIA PACIFICFighting in Rakhine, Chin states rages as Myanmar limits internet

Yangon, Myanmar - Continued fighting between Myanmar's military and the Arakan Army armed group has left several people dead in recent days as the government continues a clampdown on the western region.

Activists and journalists have decried the internet blackout the government has imposed as part of the clampdown as a violation of human rights.

UN urged to suspend Myanmar return plan for Chin amid unrest
Reports on Tuesday said at least 11 civilians, including five Muslim Rohingya, had been killed after being caught in the hostilities in Rakhine, a western state that is home to more than three million people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I never used to think, that I would ever have to say, "watch out, folks, here comes a highly nationalistic Buddhist Army, ready to exterminate the Muslim Rohingya in their country!!"

Unfortunately, Myanmar, and its military, has proven me wrong on this one.

AMID CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK, TRUMP-ALIGNED PRESSURE GROUP PUSHES TO STOP MEDICINE SALES TO IRAN

DESPITE A MASSIVE coronavirus-related public health crisis, an anti-Iran pressure group with close ties to the Trump administration is urging major pharmaceutical companies to “end their Iran business,” focusing on companies with special licenses — most often under a broadly defined “humanitarian exemption” — to conduct trade with Iran.

With a novel strain of coronavirus rapidly spreading around the world, Iran has been hit particularly hard, with 107 deaths and 3,515 infections recorded so far. Yet the pressure group, United Against Nuclear Iran, is carrying on with its campaign targeting medical trade with Iran despite the Trump administration’s special financial channels for humanitarian goods and medicine to reach the beleaguered country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please; Iran has been given absolutely no reason to trust, or believe, anything the US government is saying on your watch; you have a chance to reverse this now, by offering the best science the US has to fight this disease, and right the heck now.

Please, Mr. President, take the high road here; and that would be, immediately, freeing up what can be sold to help people recover from this disease as well as possible, until a viable vaccine can be created and tested.

Lawyers for survivors of 9/11 victims accuse Saudi authorities of targeting witnesses: Legal team also reveals that murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi was 'potential witness' in lawsuit

A legal team representing survivors and familes of victims of the 9/11 attacks has accused Saudi authorities of trying to silence several witnesses.

An almost two-decades-old lawsuit brought to court by thousands of victims and their families accuses Saudi officials of having ties to the 11 September 2001 attacks on New York and Washington. About 3,000 people were killed.

On Wednesday, lawyers representing the families said that four of their witnesses in the case had been threatened or intimidated by alleged Saudi agents.

On those grounds, the plaintiffs' legal team requested that the identities of the witnesses in the drawn-out legal battle be protected and kept secret.

Lawyers representing the Saudi government denied the allegations of witness tampering, saying the claims were "based on hearsay within hearsay".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Holy Crud!! IF, in fact, the connection to the Kashoggi assassination and his info is allowed to be presented, and proves credible in a court of law, this could change everything; everything, of course, except the mind of a President, heck-bent on further polishing the turd of his relationship with the Saudi Dictator, Prince Bin Salman, even further at an horrific cost to the Saudi people, and specifically, the people of Yemen, who are dying every day in airstrikes hitting infants; children; women; and the medically fragile elderly; the bombing of NGOs, like Medicins Sans Frontiers, who have been forced to leave Yemen; the poisoning (possibly with weaponized cholera) of Yemen's water system, making way for a plague of cholera; and starvation, because aid ships are not allowed to dock at Yemen's primary port.

Mr. President, a WORD, PLEASE: Do you realize the extent to which you have allowed this man to jeopardize the perception of this country in the Middle East and beyond, by slavishly following his dictates in Yemen?!?!

And that is not all, Mr. President; HATE COMES FROM THE TOP ON DOWN, if you are a Christian, or a Jew, in Saudi Arabia; from that last report commissioned by the former British foreign secretary, Jeremy Hunt, in which the following statement was made: "In Saudi Arabia, the report says, school textbooks “teach pupils religious hatred and intolerance towards non-Muslims, including Christians and Jews”.

MR. PRESIDENT, AND MR. SECRETARY OF STATE, PLEASE WAKE UP, AND SMELL THE ROTTING SMELL OF RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE HERE, FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE!!

Coronavirus: Remember the “Fake” 2009 H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic: Manipulating the Data to Justify a Worldwide Public Health Emergency

Author’s Introduction

On January 30th 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) in relation to China’s novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) categorized as a viral pneumonia. The virus outbreak was centred in the city of Wuhan, a city in Eastern China with a population in excess of 11 million.

In the week prior to January 30th decision, the WHO Emergency Committee “expressed divergent views”. There were visible divisions within the Committee. On January 30th, a far-reaching decision was taken in an irresponsible fashion without the support of expert opinion at a time when the coronavirus outbreak was limited to Mainland China.

Mar 06 09:13

Who Made Coronavirus? Was It the U.S., Israel or China?

The most commonly reported mainstream media account of the creation of the Coronavirus suggests that it was derived from an animal borne microorganism found in a wild bat that was consumed by an ethnic Chinese resident of Wuhan. But there appears to be some evidence to dispute that in that adjacent provinces in China, where wild bats are more numerous, have not experienced major outbreaks of the disease. Because of that and other factors, there has also been considerable speculation that the Coronavirus did not occur naturally through mutation but rather was produced in a laboratory, possibly as a biological warfare agent.

China’s Coronavirus: A Shocking Update. Did The Virus Originate in the US?

The Western media quickly took the stage and laid out the official narrative for the outbreak of the new coronavirus which appeared to have begun in China, claiming it to have originated with animals at a wet market in Wuhan.

In fact the origin was for a long time unknown but it appears likely now, according to Chinese and Japanese reports, that the virus originated elsewhere, from multiple locations, but began to spread widely only after being introduced to the market.

More to the point, it appears that the virus did not originate in China and, according to reports in Japanese and other media, may have originated in the US.

Chinese Researchers Conclude the Virus Originated Outside of China

Turkey Is Forcibly Transporting Migrants to the Greek Border, Pushing Them Across

Editor’s note: Has graduated from simply luring the migrants to the Greek border, and helping them reach (and penetrate) it — to at least in some cases, forcibly transporting them there and pushing them across. Apparently the Turkish border police has in some cases fired tear gas at the migrants to pressure them to attempt to breach the Greek border.

Around 300 migrants from Ankara’s Akyurt Repatriation Center were transported to the border against their will on Feb. 29, said Sad?k Onur Gelbal, the chair of the Ankara Bar Association’s Migrant Rights Center on March 4.

A Terrifying Scenario: Coronavirus in ‘Quarantined’ Gaza

What if the Coronavirus reaches the besieged Gaza Strip?

While the question carries great urgency for all Palestinians living under Israel’s military occupation, the Gaza situation is particularly complex and extremely worrying.

Nearly 50 countries have already reported cases of COVID-19 disease, one of several epidemics that are caused by the Coronavirus. If developed countries, such as Italy and South Korea, are struggling to contain the deadly virus, one can only imagine what occupied Palestinians would have to face should the virus strike.

In fact, according to official Palestinian reports, the Coronavirus has already reached Palestine following a visit by a South Korean delegation in the period between February 8 and 15, which included a tour in the major Palestinian cities of Jerusalem, Nablus, Jericho, Hebron, and Bethlehem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this plague hits Gaza, you can bet real money that instead of doing something concrete, top help victims heal, and minimize rates of infection, Israeli officials will "seal off" infected areas, and allow this potentially bioengineered disease to "run its course"; Mengele would have been SO PROUD of this Israeli policy!!

And hey, 30 Palestinian kids who have had to have limbs amputated, because IDF sharpshooters know just how, and where, to aim, to cause these horrendous injuries?!?

"REALLY, NO BIG DEAL!!" - Official IDF souse.

Forced Islamisation at Swedish School as 9-Year-Olds Confess to Allah in Religious Studies – Reports

According to a disturbed parent, the teacher threatened her daughter with detention if she refused to participate in a lesson that included confessing to the Islamic faith in a letter and prayer.

Söderfors School in Tierp has come under fire for its unorthodox methods of teaching religious studies.

According to the news portal Katerina Magasin, third-graders were forced to confess to Islam and Allah in a letter during a lesson in religious studies. Among other things, the nine-year-olds had to write “I belong to Islam”.

Anamaria von Roteliuc, the mother of a nine-year-old girl, told the magazine the pupils also had to participate in a prayer, while a minaret call was played in the classroom. Furthermore, the children had to colour a mosque on a piece of paper.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a parent of a kid at that school who had been forced to identify with a religion other than their own, I would pull that kid out of school so fast, as to make the administration's head spin.

I would then either "vote with my feet", and leave Sweden as a "religious refugee", or find a job in another country which does not enforce the teaching of one religion over another in this way.

SUPER TUESDAY PLAGUED BY LONG LINES, CLOSED POLLING STATIONS AND SYSTEMIC FAILURE

SOURCE: MINT PRESS
Chaos and gridlock again reigned across much of America as fourteen states chose their candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination yesterday on Super Tuesday. Many voters were forced to wait in line for up to six hours as understaffed and poorly equipped polling stations were inundated with voters, particularly in Texas and California, the two largest and most influential Super Tuesday states.

In California, electronic voting systems were unable to connect and experienced severe problems, something election integrity activists had warned was bound to happen. The law dictates that all those in line by closing time must be allowed to cast a ballot. But the technical difficulties meant that many stood in line through the evening for their right to choose. MOVE Texas, an activist focused on youth voter turnout organized lines at Texas State University in San Marcos, handed out pizza and bottles of water to those still waiting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "unbridled optimist" in me, desperately wants to believe that all of these problems were "completely accidental."

The "Going on 71 year old realist" in me, however, has lost any possible belief in "coincidence"; and that realist in me constantly asks the question; "Cui Bono" ?!? Who Benefits?!?

Because it sure as heck, was not Candidate Sanders!!

And if you have been living in a hermit's cage, or under the proverbial rock for the last 20 years, I would highly recommend the HBO documentary, "Hacking Democracy", from 2006, which was a cautionary tale of how electronic voting could be rigged way back then; can you imagine the "refinements" coders have been able to insert into these systems in the last 14 years, depending on their geopolitical proclivities, or those of the people who have hired them, to create our "new and improved" electronic voting systems?!?

CORONAVIRUS: FRENCH GOVERNMENT SEIZES ALL STOCKS OF FACE MASKS, THOUSANDS STOLEN FROM HOSPITALS

SOURCE: BREITBART
French President Emmanuel Macron ordered the seizure of all stocks and future production of medical face masks in the face of a growing threat from Coronavirus, and a spate of looting of masks from medical facilities.

The China-origin Coronavirus, which has already killed a known 3,190 people worldwide is becoming more established in Europe, with worst-impacted nation Italy’s death toll standing at 79. Neighbouring France has seen a comparatively modest four deaths, but the French government hasn’t baulked at launching a series of sweeping measures under the guise of public health.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One thing you cannot accuse France's President Macron of being, is "not Draconian enough!!"

So President Macron, a word, please; when you make the possession of something illegal, you immediately create an illegal marketplace for said item; your energy would, most probably, have been better spent, in authorizing the best French manufacturers of these items, to be making these items exclusively for the French government, and paying them intelligently to do so.

By this action, you are stoking fears, and not really doing anything to alleviate the problem; right now, you need the wise counsel of a seasoned Epidemiologist, who can guide your actions to prevent as many infections as possible in France.

And I seriously doubt that this "mask seizure" would have been one of their top recommendations.

HOUSEHOLD CHEMICAL USE LINKED TO CHILD LANGUAGE DELAYS

SOURCE: EUREK ALERT
COLUMBUS, Ohio - Young children from low-income homes whose mothers reported frequent use of toxic chemicals such as household cleaners were more likely to show delays in language development by age 2, a new study found.

In addition, the children scored lower on a test of cognitive development. These developmental delays were evident even when the researchers took into account factors such as the education and income of mothers, which are also linked to their children's language and cognitive skills.

The findings provide additional evidence of the need for pediatricians and other health care providers to counsel parents of young children to restrict their use of toxic household chemicals, said Hui Jiang, lead author of the study and senior research associate at The Ohio State University.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...more studies are needed...." MY ASTROLABE!!!!!

ANYTHING which can hurt kids, in my world, particularly at key developmental phases, is a form of child abuse, period, end of discussion.

Schools, pre-schools, infant care facilities, and churches need to be at the forefront of a movement to educate young women about what chemicals should NEVER be in their homes, and what non-toxic alternatives which "do the job" well, should be substituted for them.

Commercials, and the corporations which buy them, have the luxury of being able to lie to the American people about the potential harm their products may cause; just think about the Monsanto Frankenpesticide, "Roundup", and you have a pretty good picture of how this is allowed to happen.

No mom in her right mind, no matter her income status, would deliberately buy, and use, a chemical which could cause their child developmental delays, which could lead to cognitive problems down the road: NOT ONE!!

JUDGE DEMANDS UNREDACTED MUELLER REPORT, QUESTIONS BARR'S 'CREDIBILITY'

SOURCE: THE HILL
A federal judge on Thursday ordered the Department of Justice to hand over to him a copy of the unredacted Mueller report and accused Attorney General William Barr of misrepresenting its findings in the days before it was submitted to Congress last year.

Judge Reggie B. Walton, a federal district court judge in Washington, said that he could not reconcile Barr's public comments in April 2019 about the report with the actual findings that former special counsel Robert Mueller outlined.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember: Judge Walton was appointed to the Federal Court by none other than President George Bush; so this guy's "Establishment Republican Credentials" cannot be disputed, nor can "Establishment Republican Loathing" for President Trump, be disputed, even if he did legitimately win the 2016 election.

This appears to be to be a last-gasp, "desperation on the cusp of madness" try to re-impeach Trump before the November election, to "get him out of the way" for a more Establishment Republican", no matter how badly that candidate may lose the 2020 election.

DOD LINGUIST ARRESTED, CHARGED WITH ESPIONAGE FOR SHARING IDENTITIES OF US SPIES WITH HEZBOLLAH

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE

A US department of defense employee has been arrested and charged with transmitting "highly sensitive classified" information to a foreign national with ties to the Lebanese Islamist militant group Hezbollah.

According to US federal prosecutors, 61-year-old Mariam Taha Thompson told a Lebanese man the names of foreign informants, as well as details of the information they provided to the United States - revealing some of the government’s most closely held secrets, according to the New York Times. Officials say Ms. Thompson endangered the lives of both sources and military personnel.

She was arrested at an overseas US base on February 27.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are a couple of questions which immediately spring to mind, following this arrest:

1. What in heaven's name possessed this woman to do such a thing?!?

2. Why was it that the DOD was only able to make this arrest well after "the horse was already out of the barn", as my late maternal grandmother was fond of saying?!? Why were the DOD's concerns not addressed until after the damage was already done?!?

3. And the dramatic "find" of a note under her mattress, when she had to understand that her personal effects would be the most immediately searched?!?

Forgive me, but something here does not pass the "smell test". I have to wonder if this woman is not being "flipped" by the DOD, in search of a far larger, more menacing threat to American security, OR, as is frequently the case with FBI stings, they have demonized her, and made her appear to be far more threatening than she ever was, to prove to a rather skeptical American public, that they are "doing something" to prevent terrorism from striking at the American heartland.

COCA-COLA ACCUSED OF FUNDING COLOMBIAN DEATH SQUAD

SOURCE: TELESUR ENGLISH
Coca-Cola was accused of hiring hitmen from a prominent paramilitary group between 1990 and 2002 to kill at least 10 trade union leaders.
U.S.-based Coca-Cola company along with more than 50 other companies were accused by Colombian courts of financing terrorism for their ties to the now-disbanded paramilitary organization, United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia, a fact trade union leaders have been denouncing for decades.

The cases against the companies will be heard in a transitional justice tribunal after the peace deal with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia and the government is signed.

Coca-Cola was accused of hiring hitmen from the AUC between 1990 and 2002 to kill at least 10 labor union leaders who were trying to organize Coca-Cola’s plants. U.K. oil company BP has also be taken to court for its funding of AUC, along with kidnapping and human rights abuses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every executive in these companies who "signed off" on these assassinations, should be publicly accused; tried and convicted of their crimes, if guilty; and do hard time in the worst facilities their countries have to offer.

In my world, particularly when working conditions are "crud", labor unions have a legitimate place and a purpose on this planet, and the leadership of these organisations should be dealt with through negotiations; not assassinations.

And NO ONE, no matter how far up the "corporate food chain" they may be, should be allowed to get away with murder, period, end of discussion.

Calls for Royal Commission of Inquiry after sixth epilepsy drugs switch death

Calls for a Royal Commission of Inquiry have been made after a sixth death following Pharmac's epilepsy drug switch last year.

The death of the 35-year-old woman on February 23 shortly after switching drugs has been reported to the Centre for Adverse Reactions Monitoring.

READ MORE:
• Pharmac knew of epilepsy deaths for weeks but stayed silent
• Sudden unexpected deaths in epilepsy 'nothing new', more investigation needed
• Fourth death linked to Pharmac's epilepsy medication switch

About 11,000 people, most with epilepsy but some with mental health conditions, began switching to a generic form of the drug lamotrigine, called Logem, last year.

Five other deaths possibly linked to the drug switch have been reported to the centre and the chief coroner is investigating.

Bella Guybay, whose child has epilepsy, told First Up that, because pleas for political intervention had been ignored, only a Royal Commission of Inquiry could effectively deal with the issue.

Empires of the Steppes Fuel Erdogan Khan’s DreamsAs Putin meeting looms, no one in Moscow believes any word, promise or cajoling from Erdogan anymore

“Idlib is mine”

So there is a link between the turcophone tribes of Central Asia from the 5th and 6thcenturies and the current Turkish nation. From the 6th to the 11th centuries they were set up as a confederation of big tribes. Then, going southwest, they founded states. Chinese sources document the first turkut (Turkish empires) as eastern Turks in Mongolia and western Turks in Turkestan.

They were followed by more or less ephemeral empires of the steppes such as the Uighurs in the 8th century (who, by the way, were originally Buddhists). It’s interesting that this original past of the Turks in Central Asia, before Islam, was somewhat elevated to mythic status by the Kemalists.

Ending the Myth that Trump Is Ending the Wars: Trump has sent more new troops to the Middle East than he’s bringing home from Afghanistan.

There was this moment during the State of the Union Address that I can’t stop thinking about.

When President Trump spoke to army wife Amy Wiliams during his speech and told her he’d arranged her husband’s return home from Afghanistan as a “special surprise,” it was difficult to watch.

Sgt. Townsend Williams then descended the stairs to reunite with his family after seven months of deployment. Congress cheered. A military family’s reunion — with its complicated feelings that are typically handled in private or on a base — was used for an applause line.

That gimmick was the only glimpse many Americans will get of the human reality of our wars overseas. There is no such window into the lives or suffering of people in Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan, or beyond.

That’s unacceptable. And so is the myth that Trump is actually ending the wars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given that many of the Trump-Centric Evangelicals in this country are also "End of Time Believers", who believe that it will be only after a massive world war (which humankind MUST bring about) that Jesus' "Second Coming" will happen, coupled with the push by the military industrial complex for wars and more wars, I see both the chances for bringing about the end of existing wars, and not bringing about new ones, is statistically very slight for this administration.

And the hell of it it is, once the Dementocrats finally have nailed down their choices for President and Vice President, whoever they may be, we are still looking at a party which will never "cross the line" in terms of questioning if such a war is necessary, and if there might possibly be other alternatives which would see the US get what it wanted to get, geopolitically, without firing a shot.

So, as usual, at the end of the day, the American voter has utterly zero choice in finding a non-warmonger as their presidential or vice-presidential candidate, because no matter who they vote for, every vote in this Kabuki-like charade, is a vote for more war.; it pains me to say this, but if people are honestly, dispassionately looking at the American Presidential political process, this is the butt-ugly truth, no matter how you describe it.

Turkish Army Posts in Syria’s Idlib Merge With Rebel Positions: Russia says Turkey is violating past deals on Idlib

Turkish-backed Islamist rebels in Northern Syria’s Idlib Province have been getting more and more aid from Turkey to fight against the Syrian government. They are looking for direct Turkish backing by embedding closer and closer to Turkish Army posts. At this point, they’ve effectively merged.

This makes sense for the rebels to do, because having Syria attack al-Qaeda doesn’t look like a problem, but having Syria attack the Turkish military does. Making it less clear which is which ensures that every Syrian military operation is vilified.

Russian officials were critical of this tactic, saying Turkey was violating obligations they’d established in previous deals over Idlib, particularly deals when all those Turkish Army posts were established. This was done specifically so Turkey didn’t do exactly what they’re doing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How ever this is happening, it does not auger well for peace; for the Syrian people, and for its government.

They Have the Watches, We Have the Time; US and Iran Hardliners Still Want War

For the US Empire, and those relishing the responsibility for its maintenance and expansion, to include much of corporate media, there can simply not be too much war.

There are hardliners in Iran who want confrontation and war with the US, just as for decades now we have had hardliners in the US start, prolong and sustain war after war, stretching from Western Africa to Pakistan. What we need to do, both Americans and Iranians, is to recognize the dangers within each of our own governments and not do anything to allow these hardliners to feed off each other, escalate crises and deliver the political space needed in both countries for war between the US and Iran to occur.

Dems Converge Around Dementia-Addled Warmonger Ahead Of Super Tuesday

Back in January, well before the Democratic primary race had taken on its current composition, independent journalist Ruth Ann Oskolkoff reportedthat a source had heard from high-level Democratic Party insiders that they were planning to install Joe Biden as the party’s nominee, and to smear Bernie Sanders as a Russian asset.

“On January 20, 2020 at 8:20 p.m. PDT I received a communication from a reliable source,” Oskolkoff wrote. “This person had interactions earlier that evening with high level party members and associates of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) who said that they have now selected Biden as the Democratic Party nominee, with Warren as the VP. They also said the plan is to smear Bernie as a Russian asset.”

HomeWorld NewsWATCH: Fistfight breaks out in Turkish parliament after lawmaker lashes out at Erdogan over Idlib soldier deaths

Turkey’s parliament descended into a chaotic fistfight after an opposition lawmaker accused President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an of disrespecting Turkish soldiers killed recently in Idlib, Syria.

During a closed session about the country’s operations in Idlib, opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) member Engin Ozkoc said Erdogan disrespected the dead troops and had also acted irresponsibly by sending them into conflict without air cover.

The accusations quickly escalated into a huge brawl inside the chamber between government and opposition politicians, with punches thrown and lawmakers slapping and kicking each other.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a Turkish Parliamentarian, what would have really "chapped my grits" here, would have been that this was ordered by Edrogan, with absolutely zero parliamentary input or review, as to whether this military intervention in Syria was necessary, or was Edrogan writing checks (again)for his military misadventures in Syria, which his military were unable to cash.

That would have angered me greatly.

I do not know if Turkey's Constitution allows for snap elections, but were I a Turkish Parliamentarian, upset at his current geopolitical proclivities, I would want to see this happen, and right now.

Who Made Coronavirus? Was It the U.S., Israel or China Itself?

The most commonly reported mainstream media account of the creation of the Coronavirus suggests that it was derived from an animal borne microorganism found in a wild bat that was consumed by an ethnic Chinese resident of Wuhan. But there appears to be some evidence to dispute that in that adjacent provinces in China, where wild bats are more numerous, have not experienced major outbreaks of the disease. Because of that and other factors, there has also been considerable speculation that the Coronavirus did not occur naturally through mutation but rather was produced in a laboratory, possibly as a biological warfare agent.

HomeWorld News‘You met Al-Qaeda’s medical staff’: US envoy to UN takes heat after proudly greeting notorious White Helmets

Colorful images of Ambassador Kelly Craft enthusiastically shaking hands with ‘White Helmets’ members made rounds online, with users reminding the diplomat of their connections to a jihadi group the US once fought against.
Craft, who serves as the US Ambassador to the United Nations, showed up at the Turkey-Syrian border, posing with members of the self-described “civil defense group.” She didn’t come empty-handed, though, promising a hefty $108-million “humanitarian support package” intended for the people of northern Syria.

“Grateful to shake the hands of the brave men and women of the #whitehelmets,” Kelly tweeted, hailing them as “ordinary people doing extraordinary things to save the lives of Syrian victims of Assad’s brutality.”

Syrian air defenses engaged incoming missiles shortly after midnight local time on Thursday, both near Homs in central Syria and Quneitra in the south, on the armistice line with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. Following the attack, reports appeared that at least two flights – one passenger, one cargo – had to change course to avoid getting struck by air defense missiles.

FEMA IS PREPARING FOR CORONAVIRUS “EMERGENCY DECLARATION”

As Americans scramble to prepare themselves for the possibility that the coronavirus outbreak becomes a pandemic, FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) is also preparing. FEMA is “aware of the gravity of the situation” and ready to assist in a coronavirus response.

FEMA officials are preparing for an “infectious disease emergency declaration” by the president that would allow the agency to provide disaster relief funding to state and local governments, as well as federal assistance to support the coronavirus response, according to agency planning documents reviewed by NBC News.

VIDEO RELEASED SHOWING POLICE KILL 'ER' ACTRESS DURING WELFARE CHECK, AS SHE HAD A 'SEIZURE'

SOURCE: THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) -

Los Angeles, CA — All too often in this country, police are called out to check on the health of an individual who may be physically or mentally troubled. And, all too often, instead of providing that person with help, police show up and hurt, arrest, or even kill them. This process is known as a welfare check and a former actress from the hit show “ER” became one of many victims to receive this ‘help’ in 2018. Video from the incident was held for nearly two years and was only released this week.

Vanessa Marquez, 49, hadn’t harmed anyone when police showed up at her South apartment on that foreboding day back in August 2018. The landlord had simply become concerned that she may have fallen ill and wasn’t taking care of herself, so he called police for help. Sadly, this help came in the form of government issued bullets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am an extraordinarily lucky person; I have never, this lifetime, had a run-in with police that could have ever become dangerous. There were a couple of speeding tickets on Oahu, which I earned, and for which I did pay, but that was about it.

That being said, what about the ability to "talk someone down" before a police confrontation went south, and someone got horrifically hurt, or killed?!? How has that seemingly gotten lost in 21st century policing, because someone with this skill set, could most probably have prevented this "wellness check" from becoming lethal?

It sounds to me as though, in the 21st century, police in this country are in desperate need "psychological responders" to defuse situations before they result in someone's death; either that of an officer, or a person who may well not be of sound mind.

CORONAVIRUS VS. THE MASS SURVEILLANCE STATE: WHICH POSES THE GREATER THREAT?

SOURCE: JOHN W. WHITEHEAD
“If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.”—Philip K. Dick

Emboldened by the citizenry’s inattention and willingness to tolerate its abuses, the government has weaponized one national crisis after another in order to expands its powers.

The war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on illegal immigration, asset forfeiture schemes, road safety schemes, school safety schemes, eminent domain: all of these programs started out as legitimate responses to pressing concerns and have since become weapons of compliance and control in the police state’s hands.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Much of what happens in China's future, depends on its military; how loyal it will continue to be to a centralized government, which continues to abuse its people and act with an incredible degree of hubris, , or develop a new-found loyalty to the Chinese people themselves, suffering under the boot-heel of oppression.; and right now, that issue is up for grabs.

DID COVID-19 JUST POP ALL THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL BUBBLES?

SOURCE: CHARLES HUGH SMITH
Once confidence and certainty are lost, the willingness to expand debt and leverage collapses.

Even though the first-order effects of the Covid-19 pandemic are still impossible to predict, it’s already possible to ask: did the pandemic pop all the global financial bubbles? The reason we can ask this question is the entire bull mania of the 21st century has been based on a permanently high rate of expansion of leverage and debt.

The lesson of the 2008-09 Global Financial meltdown was clear: any decline in the rate of debt/leverage expansion is enough to threaten financial bubbles, and any absolute decline in debt and leverage will unleash a cascade that collapses all the speculative bubbles in stocks, real estate, collectibles, etc.

Coronavirus: High Recovery Rates in China. Most Recent Figures

Western media hype: Fear and panic, disruption of the global economy, that makes the headlines.

But not a word is mentioned that the COVID-19 in China is under control, people are being treated in hospitals and they are recovering.

On February 28, China reported 36,157 out of a total of 78,961 reported cases as having recovered.

China has reported (March 1st) a 52.1 percent recovery rate, which signifies that more than half of the patients (confirmed cases) have been discharged from the hospitals. And the Chinese hospitals (which are very strict) will not release them if they are still infected or could transmit the COVID-19 coronavirus.

What this means is that the number of “reported infected cases” in China (80 304) (WHO data, March 3, 2020) has fallen to less than 40,000. But that does not make the headlines.

China’s Coronavirus: A Shocking Update. Did The Virus Originate in the US?

The Western media quickly took the stage and laid out the official narrative for the outbreak of the new coronavirus which appeared to have begun in China, claiming it to have originated with animals at a wet market in Wuhan.

In fact the origin was for a long time unknown but it appears likely now, according to Chinese and Japanese reports, that the virus originated elsewhere, from multiple locations, but began to spread widely only after being introduced to the market.

More to the point, it appears that the virus did not originate in China and, according to reports in Japanese and other media, may have originated in the US.

— WW I use of poison gas causes 100,000 deaths and 900,000 injuries;

— Britain uses poison gas against Iraqis in the 1920s; as Secretary of State for War in 1919, Winston Churchill advocates it in a secret memo stating: “I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against uncivilised tribes;”

— the 1928 Geneva Protocol prohibits gas and bacteriological warfare;

— in 1931, Dr. Cornelius Rhoads infects human subjects with cancer cells – under the auspices of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Investigations; Rhoads later conducts radiation exposure experiments on American soldiers and civilian hospital patients;

— in 1932, the Tuskegee Syphilis Study begins on 200 black men; they’re not told of their illness, are denied treatment, and are used as human guinea pigs to follow their disease symptoms and progression; they all subsequently die.......

The US Used Biological Warfare Against Mainland China in the 1950s

The US amnestied Japanese war criminals and told them to develop biological weapons for its use. It then used those weapons widely in the Korean War, but vehemently denied doing so, blaming any reports on “Communist propaganda” which it continues to this day. ‘Fortunately’ the Chinese and Korean familiarity with Japanese bioweapons meant they were able to limit the fallout and render the US biological warfare campaign ineffective.

WHO Urges People To Go Cashless Because “Dirty Banknotes Can Spread The Virus”

Are you people starting to figure this out yet? Can you see where this is going?

By Tyler Durden

It looks like the Chinese started something…

Following reports that Beijing had “quarantined” dirty cash, the WHO warned on Monday that the virus could survive on banknotes, potentially spreading Covid-19 within communities, and across the world. To reduce the risk of being infected by money, the NGO advised citizens in countries struggling with outbreaks to favor digital payments when possible, the Daily Telegraph reported.

That the WHO is telling the public to avoid cash is hardly a surprise: research has found that coronaviruses have been found to live on surfaces for as long as 9 days.

Many aren't old enough to remember, but in the Swine Flu panic in (1976), the US Congress approved the money to vaccinate every person in the US. After they had inoculated about 25% of the population, and more people had died from the vaccine than did the Swine Flu, they discontinued the program. By the way, ONE person in the US died from the Swine Flu, THIRTEEN were hospitalized, and an estimated THIRTY-TWO died from the vaccine.

Gene Genovese And Our Criminally Reckless Wars

Eugene Genovese (1930-2012) was an accomplished and influential historian of the United States whose professional and personal trajectory carried him from the radical Left to a distinctive form of conservatism. As a young man, he was a card-carrying communist. He ended up a devout Roman Catholic. His contributions to scholarship were legion and his impact on our understanding of slavery and on Southern slaveholders massive.

Genovese did not place a premium on getting along with others. Instinctively combative, he was a cantankerous colleague who never hesitated to say what he believed. Giving offense he considered a plus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Genovese was right on both counts here; there is no "moral rightness" in the US invasion and occupation of Afghanistan; Iraq; any of the invasions of Africa; or Syria; this was all about money and resources; regime changing countries in order to expropriate natural resources to which the US had utterly no moral right; have them processed by multi-national centric companies not unfavorable to the US; and only sold in US dollars.

And please remember; the US is aiding and abetting Saudi war crimes in Yemen as I type this. And just in case you are dealing with a really bad case of SMD (selective memory disorder), let these images remind you of US complicity in Saudi war crimes (warning; these are graphic, to a "lose your lunch" point, but need to be posted, and seen.)

The Saudis are killing and maiming innocent children with their bombing runs.
The US military is providing "guidance" for these strikes.

Saudi coalition using depleted uranium weapons in Yemen
Deformities in Yemen suggests that the US military has supplied the Saudi military with depleted uranium weapons.

The result of this use of DU is causing massive rises in cancer rates; stillbirths, and horrific deformities of Yemeni children:

And yet, apparently, the Royal House of Saud; the Saudi government; and the US government, are perfectly comfortable with poisoning Yemeni children in the womb, and destroying not only their lives, but their families' lives as well. If there is a more cruel form of child abuse, I cannot imagine what that is.

And please DON'T start with me about "collateral damage"; in my world, there is none. Just non-combatants caught up at the wrong place, in the wrong time.

Pakistan court gives green light to women's march - with conditions

A Pakistani court on Tuesday gave the go-ahead to the country’s largest women’s rights event but told organisers to ensure participants adhere to “decency and moral values”.

The country-wide event, known as Aurat March, using the Urdu word for women, has been attended by tens of thousands over the last two years to mark International Women’s Day on March 8.

A court in Lahore was petitioned last month to place restrictions on the organisers and participants of the march, whom the complainant said had an agenda to “spread anarchy, vulgarity, blasphemy and hatred” against Islam.

The court told organisers to consult local officials to finalise arrangements for the event, which campaigns for reclaiming space for women as well as the LGBT community.

Global watchdogs have expressed concern in recent years over what they see as a growing clampdown on rights campaigns in Pakistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The organisers have to see these threats coming, and do their best to counter them, as peacefully and responsibly as is humanly possible. MARCHERS, PLEASE HAVE THE HORSE-SENSE TO PROTECT EACH OTHER HERE!!

As these documented stories go, the level of violence against Pakistani women, is horrific. From Wikipedia, we have the following statistics:

"According to a study carried out in 2009 by Human Rights Watch, it is estimated that between 20 and 30 percent of women in Pakistan have suffered some form of abuse. An estimated 5000 women are killed per year from domestic violence, with thousands of others maimed or disabled."

Violence against Women on the rise in Pakistan

Pakistan to open more than 1,000 new courts to fight violence against women

As you can see, from the postmark on the last article, this problem goes back a long way.

This is one of the many reasons you would NEVER find me in Islamabad; as an "uppity gal" who peacefully and logically speaks her mind, and as a Christian, I would probably get both assassinated and dismembered in this country, before I got home, most probably arriving back in pieces, as did Adnan Kashoggi.

Where’s the outrage over Netanyahu trying to interfere in the US election?

For the last four years, there’s been a national debate regarding the scope of Russian interference in the 2016 election. The issue might end up dominating discourse in 2020 as well. Last month, intelligence officials warned House members that Russia is allegedly meddling in an effort to get Trump reelected.

Concerns about Putin’s impact on U.S. elections has generated countless articles and wall-to-wall cable news coverage. It also fueled an impeachment investigation. However, blatant election interference from other countries is certainly not treated in the same way.

This contradiction was on display over the weekend, when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed AIPAC’s annual policy conference via video feed. Netanyahu repeatedly referenced Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders, who skipped the conference and claimed that the lobbying group promotes bigotry. At the most recent Democratic debate, Sanders called Netanyahu a “reactionary racist.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Outrageous", MY ASTROLABE, Mr. Prime Minister!!

Bernie Sanders has no chance for the Dementocrat nomination, thanks greatly to the interference from AIPAC, which believes that a potentially dementia-stricken Joe Biden, whose campaign gaffes are so intense as to be absoflippinglutely unbelievable, is a far better candidate for President (for Israel), than is Sanders, with whom I am absolutely aligned in his call for a more "even handed" approach to the US's Middle East policy.

I would suggest that our Dementocrat brothers and Sisters are looking at a "brokered convention", into which Hillary Clinton, a two-time party "favorite/Failure" will try to re-insert herself as a Candidate.

IF, in fact, Clinton's candidacy is for the Vice-Presidency, whoever winds up at the top of the ticket, had better be wearing their Kevlar undies; hire a food-taster; and get the best private security people available in the world; because after the inauguration, should they clinch the win in November, they are going to need them.

Assad Joins Forces With Libya’s Hafter to Combat Turkey: East Libya govt will open embassy in Damascus

While recent generations have shown them reluctant to expand far beyond their borders, in the past few months Turkey has shown interest in overseas military engagements. Forces have been active in northern Syria with an eye toward regime change, and Turkey has also committed to military involvement in Libya.

That’s given Turkey two potential enemies to worry about, and given them each a potential new ally. The Syrian government and Libya’s self-proclaimed Libyan National Army (LNA) or Gen. Khalifa Haftar have agreed to cooperation, and a memorandum of understanding to confront Turkish aggression.

The LNA’s adjoining government, the eastern-based Tobruk Parliament, has confirmed it will be opening an embassy in Damascus. This will be the first Libyan embassy in Syria since the 2012 NATO-imposed regime change in Libya.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one of the most significant developments regarding Libya, that you will almost never hear about, courtesy of the Corporate Presstitutes.

A very very curious, but astute, article appeared in mid-January of this year,from fp, and titled: Russia’s Role in the Libyan Civil War Gives It Leverage Over Europe

It then states that "recent joint Russian-Turkish summit in Moscow aimed at forging a cease-fire in Libya broke down after the Libyan warlord Khalifa Haftar left without signing the proposed truce agreement. One of Haftar’s main backers is Russia, and his unwillingness to sign on to the deal raises important questions about not only the degree of influence Russia actually has in Libya, but also how serious it is about bringing an end to the conflict.

Russia first rose to prominence in Libya in September 2019 after it deployed mercenaries to the front lines of Tripoli to back Haftar, sparking concern in the United States and Europe that the Kremlin had finally thrown its hat into Libya’s civil war. Its presence in Libya was strikingly reminiscent of the decisive role it played in Syria, where it backed the regime of President Bashar al-Assad to brutal effect and essentially saved the regime from collapse."

but if Syria (and Russia) are bringing force to bear against the current UN/proxy military government in Tripoli, which Erdogan is claiming he is fighting to defend, we have a couple of potential outcomes, both lousy, for US involvement here.

The first is a triumphant Haftar, after taking Tripoli, and the rest of the country, calling for new elections, and throwing the delegitimized UN government out, and the question has to be asked; what is the US government actually willing to do to prevent this, in light of the fact that Russia is siding with Haftar?!?

The second is a prolonged US/NATO-led military against Haftar and the Russians, which could well turn Libya into another US Vietnam, with the same ultimate outcome as this war had.

And what concerns me, is that those in the Bowels of Power in this country appear to be sleepwalking into this trap, just as blissfully as did the US government in World War I.

One of the most brilliant films about war ever to have been made, is the 2nd Robert Downey Jr./Jude Law film about Sherlock Holmes; the title is "A Game of Shadows", and if you have not seen it, I urge you to do so, because it talks in very plain language, about just how regional wars like this get fanned, until they become world wars; this is the potential impact of Al Assad throwing his geopolitical fortunes with Russia, in supporting Haftar in Libya.
