"America is a nation desperate to believe they remain a just and moral people even as they carry out unjust and immoral wars upon other nations. Those (far too many) Americans who lack the courage to stand up to a government gone wrong are grasping at any symbol that allows them to pretend they remain decent human beings. They won't oppose the violence in Iraq, so they scream about violence on TV. They cannot face up to the reality of torture of innocent victims so they complain about "decency" in movies. They bash gays. They demand evolution mythology replace science on the schools. They scream for the Ten Commandments to be displayed in the offices of government while blind to that government's violation of those same commandments. And, of course, they scream for Terri Schiavo to prove to the world (and themselves) that they really do care about every single human life, despite having sat in silence while hundreds of thousands of people were killed and the survivors showered with radioactive waste in wars started with lies and deceptions. If hypocrisy were an Olympic event, America would take home the gold, silver, AND bronze!" -- Michael Rivero

How to Kill Goyim and Influence People: Israeli Rabbis Defend Book's Shocking Religious Defense of Killing Non-Jews (with Video)

According to the book's author, Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira, "Non-Jews are "uncompassionate by nature" and should be killed in order to "curb their evil inclinations." "If we kill a gentile who has violated one of the seven commandments… there is nothing wrong with the murder," Shapira insisted. Citing Jewish law as his source (or at least a very selective interpretation of it) he declared: "There is justification for killing babies if it is clear that they will grow up to harm us, and in such a situation they may be harmed deliberately, and not only during combat with adults."

How To Kill Goyim And Influence People -- Torat Ha'melech

Israeli artists start facebook campaign to tell Iranians many Israelis don't support war threats.

Two Israeli artists, Ronnie Adri and Michal Tamir, have come up with a Facebook campaign called "Israel Loves Iran" intended to "humanize" the Israeli people for Iranian Facebook users and express opposition to the government's war talk.
Coverage of the meme has expanded to other popular news sites in both the U.S. and Israel. Apparently, it is eliciting responses from Iranians along the same lines, which considering the dangers of self-expression on the internet in Iran, is saying something.

Thanks to Netanyahu's babble, an attack on Iran will inflame global anti-Semitism

The State of Israel, which was established as a haven for Jews from those who hate it, may instead wind up becoming a threat to Jews.

Nabi Saleh: Israeli Soldiers Shoot 15 year old in the face with rubber bullet

Israeli Border Police officers shot a rubber-coated bullet at 15 year-old Ezz Tamimi's face from a distance of about 20 meters, during the weekly demonstration in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh today. The bullet, which hit the boy's cheek, went through it, gouging a large hole in it. The Israeli army's own open-fire regulations forbid the use of rubber-coated bullets against minors.
The incident took place at the center of the village ,hundreds of meters away from where a demonstration was taking place, when Border Police officers invaded the village.
Israeli Border Police must have been giving each other high fives after that shot. It really must have made them feel so utterly BUTCH!!
Welcome to "the (alleged) only democracy in the Middle East", whose Border Police shoot unarmed Palestinian teenagers in the face!

Iron Dome bill presented at US Congress

The US Congress' response to Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren's article was instantaneous. After Oren published an opinion piece discussing the growing need to invest in 10 more Iron Dome batteries, two House Representatives introduced legislation Wednesday that would allow the Obama administration to give more missile defense systems to Israel.
The proposed bill does not include specific figures, but it recognizes the operational success of Iron Dome, and its strategic significance in anti-missile defense. It also secures the budgeting of 10 more Iron Dome batteries, regardless of expected cut in security funding. The cost of one Iron Dome battery is $50 millions, not including the costs of the missiles and infrastructure.
Now, let me get this straight: the US Congress has generated funding legislation allowing for Obama to fork over more money for 10 more Iron Dome Batteries, costing $50 million dollars each?!?
Let's think about this for a second: As the Federal Deficit explodes; while US infrastructure crumbles; child poverty and food instability in this country grow exponentially, and US Vets sleep homeless in our streets, Congress is endorsing legislation which will "...allow the Obama administration to give more missile defense systems to Israel." to the tune of half a billion dollars, and that is not including"... the costs of the missiles and the infrastructure."?!?!?
It should be unambiguously clear by now to every American that every Congressional representative who allegedly represents them that they absolutely stopped caring about the need and concerns of American citizens, when they can so brazenly and blithely put the needs of a foreign government ahead of the needs of the American people.
We American citizens have become expendable, ahead of the security needs of Israel. And to be blunt, we have come full-circle, back to that awkward time in America's history when what we have is taxation without representation.
But how can you say that, you ask?!? After all, we have elections!
Oh, yes, we go through that Kabuki-like exercise we call elections, where primary manipulation is so intense that the votes have to be screwed into those ballot boxes!
And at the end of the day, the choices for high office, most generally, have already made for us by major corporations and private central banks.
So the cold, stark reality is that certain foreign governments (one in particular), and large corporations which have acquired US congressional representatives, are the only entities which matter to the folks in the bowels of power in DC; and if you think otherwise, take a very hard look one more time at this half-trillion appropriation legislation for Israel, and get over it!!

Settlers grab Palestinian water springs: U.N. report (reuters)

The U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said it had surveyed 530 springs in the West Bank and found that 30, mostly in areas where Israel retains military control, were taken over by the settlers.
It added that Palestinians currently had limited access to 26 other springs where settlers had moved in and threatened to take control. The report said settlers had not encroached on 474 remaining springs surveyed.

QUÉBEC: Manifestation étudiante monstre à Montréal, près de 300 000 manifestants étaient au rendez-vous


Photo prise d’un hélicoptère

Des centaines de milliers d’étudiants ont marché à Montréal pour protester contre la hausse des droits de scolarité. On en espérait 100 000, on en a eu 300 000…Malgré tout, Charest reste inflexible.

Plus tôt en journée, des étudiants ont bloqué une entrée du port de Montréal.

A costly lesson in student debt for young Americans – 34 percent of all student debt saddled to those under the age of 30. 47 percent of student loan borrowers appear to be in deferral or forbearance.

The student loan market has expanded like a financial virus in the last decade. Even during the financial meltdown where credit was being restricted across all sectors of the economy, student debt kept on growing at a feverish pitch. It would be one thing if the quality of education had increased or wages were going up for college graduates but the opposite occurred. The quality of education especially at many of the for-profits is suspect at best and borders on thievery. This is where a massive expansion has occurred thanks to the financialization of our entire economy. Student debt has grown from $97 billion in 1997 to a stunning $870 billion according to conservative Fed reports to inching closer to $1 trillion this year by other measures.

Student-Loan Debt Tops $1 Trillion

The amount Americans owe on student loans is far higher than earlier estimates and could lead some consumers to postpone buying homes, potentially slowing the housing recovery, U.S. officials said Wednesday.

Brazilian student tasered to death in Sydney

THE uncle of Brazilian student Roberto Laudisio Curti, who died after being Tasered by police in Sydney, says the notion that his nephew was a thief or may have had a pre-existing health condition was inconceivable.
Joao Eduardo Laudisio, a financier from a well-known and powerful family in Brazil, hit at NSW police as the family hired a team of Australian investigators to find out how the 21-year-old student died.
"He has money for everything he wants," said Mr Laudisio, who helped raise Roberto after Roberto's parents died from cancer.
He said he had personally taken Roberto for a thorough health check before Roberto left for Australia last year. Doctors at the hospital, one of the best in South America, had declared him "very healthy".

IMF Banksters worst fear: Egyptians launch campaign to repudiate Mubarak's debt's

Mubarak contracted the debt so Mubarak should pay. Let the international banksters like IMF and WB who lent the money to Mubarak go collect it from him. Third world debt repudiation is the criminal banksters worst nightmare. Argentina did it successfully in the 90 and now there are Egypt, Pakistan Philippians even India is a possible candidate for debt repudiation.

Amnesty International: The Masks Are Dropping

Short summary, Ness: Suzanne Nossel, appointed leader of Amnesti International, worked for the Obama and Clinton administrations, was Hillary Clinton's aide, and as such planned policies in: SYRIA, IRAN, LIBYA, KOSOVO, BOSNIA. She also worked for Bertelsmann media (the biggest media corporation in europe), The Century Foundation, The Center For American Progress en de Council on Foreign Relations, all pro-Israeli organisations.
She invented the term smart power (color revolutions): a system to bring about regime change without having to resort to violence.
The latest reports and statements of Amnesty on the Khmer Rouge, the Hmong (Laos) and Syria are extremely biased and one sided.

Obama signed a new Exec. Order in the night that allows him to take over all libertys 3/16/12

The Exec.Order allows the nationalization of pretty much the entire USA even in peacetime if he desires. They can, under this order, restrict civilian travel by any mode, including (probably) foot travel. They can ration food. They can restrict water usage, even from private wells. They can ration any and all drugs, including OTC and vitamins. They can collectivize farms. They can take over all energy production, including home solar units.
It also allows for drafting civilians. If they have need of your skills, they can compel you to work for no compensation.
All this not in a time of war, but in time of “National Emergency” (several EO national emergency states already in place) or even in Peacetime

POLICE STATE - Man Arrested For Pointing His Finger At Cops

New Big Brother facial recognition system scans 36 million faces per second

A new system has emerged to process surveillance footage for facial recognition, and it makes much of the previous technology seem like it belongs in the Stone Age, further empowering the Big Brother surveillance state.

This is just another front in the
rapidly growing surveillance industry which preys upon the fear and paranoia of the American people which has been instilled by the government through the Department of Homeland Security and their allied entities.

Perhaps the only system that can compete with this blazing fast technology is
the facial recognition systems being developed for military drones, which incorporate three-dimensional models of the target’s face. This method allows for even less of the target’s face to be visible while still being able to positively identify them.

The novel system developed by Hitachi Kokusai Electric of Japan is able to process video footage faster and more flexibly any previous technology could allow, thus enabling an even faster response to positive identification.

The system was displayed at the Security Show Expo in Japan and it is capable of processing a wide range of information including both still images and video footage.

It is capable of recognizing faces in real-time, or at least as close to real-time as possible, as it is able to compare a target’s face to a stunning 36 million different faces every second.

Feds Buying Up All Surplus Ammo, Ordering Stores To Cease Sales?

According to an anonymous source the federal government is buying out all ammunition from military surplus stores and says vendors have told him they have been instructed to cease sales of ammunition to the public.
The source claims to have contacted numerous military surplus stores in an attempt to purchase 5.56 ammo and has been repeatedly informed the stores are sold out because the federal government is buying out all surplus ammo.
The vendors are also sold out of Federal M193 and M855 SS109 ammunition and military surplus suppliers and say that any remaining supply of 5.56 ammunition and .223 caliber is about to spike significantly in price due to the shortage being created by the government.
This could be a ploy to push up ammo sales.
However, IF THIS IS TRUE, it is an extremely worrying development.

Fourth Largest Gun Maker In US Is Out Of Guns

In a somewhat sad and shocking slap of reality to the face of our 'recovery' and 'freedom-based-debt-holdings', today's press-release-of-the-day (since we still haven't heard from BATS) goes to Sturm, Ruger (the 4th largest gun-maker in the US) who after receiving orders for over one million units in Q1 has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.

Ruger Stops Accepting Firearms Orders - Cannot keep up with demand

"Guns" I Think You Should Read This

My doctor asked me if I had guns in my house and also if any were loaded. I , of course, answered yes to both questions. Then he asked why I kept a loaded gun close to my bed. I answered that my son, who is a certified gun instructor and also works for Homeland Security, advised me that an unloaded, locked up gun is no protection against criminal attack. The Government now requires these questions be asked of people on Medicare, and probably everyone else.
Just passing this along for your information: I had to visit a doctor other than my regular doctor when my doctor was on vacation. One of the questions on the form I had to fill out was: Do you have any guns in your house?? My answer was None of your damn business!!
"None of your business" is essentially admitting you have guns. Far better to just lie about it. Just imagine the look on the faces of the goon squad limping away from your house and saying, "But, but, but, the commander said they didn't have guns in there!!!"

Gun-tracking operation caught top suspect, then let him go

Federal agents stopped the main target of the ill-fated Operation Fast and Furious in May 2010. After they questioned him, he disappeared back into Mexico, and the program went on to spiral out of control.

Mexico prepares for Pope visit and millions of visitors

One hundred fifty-thousand communion wafers? Check.
Campsites for 350,000? Check.
Three hand-embroidered papal souvenir sombreros? Check.
Official song? Check.
It takes a lot to prepare for the coming of the pope and the 3 million people the host Archdiocese of Leon says he is expected to draw.
The Pope is traveling in Mexico, then off to Cuba! Interesting. And Pope Benny has been invited to visit Iran (but not yet accepted).
Rather dangerous trip!
After all, Hezbollah is on the Mexican border (we are told) and according to former DEA chief Michael Braun, Iran is backing these Mexican Hezbollah (we are told). There are hundreds of Hezbollah agents in America (so says Peter King)
So there you have it, Iranian-backed Hezbollah and the Pope, down in Mexico, where the Mossad likes to play with things that go "Boom!"...
Seems like a perfect setup for a crazed lone-nut Iranian-Hezbollah-HAMAS-Arab-Mooselim to whack his Holinessness and trigger a war between the Christians and the Muslims while Israel sits back and laughs while their enemies, gullible fools as always, wipe each other off of the face of the Earth.

DHS Turns Over Hundreds of Pages Occupy Wall Street Documents to Jason Leopold #DHSOWS #OWS #OO #Anonymous #FOIA

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) closely monitored the Occupy Wall Street movement, providing agency officials with regular updates about protests taking place throughout the country, responding to requests from fusion centers for intelligence on the group and mining Twitter for information about Occupy's activities

Homeland Security: Pretty Much All Bodily Movement is an Indicator of Potential Terrorism

The culture of citizen spying and pervasive paranoia in the United States is getting to the point of patent absurdity, yet somehow many American nonsensically seem to continue to treat it as gospel.
According to a document entitled “Terrorism Awareness and Prevention: Participant Guide” distributed by the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security & Preparedness (which you can see embedded below), almost every single action should be treated as suspicious.
These include glances, wide open eyes, cold penetrating stares, trance-like gazes, exaggerated yawning when engaged in conversation, protruding or beating neck arteries, repetitive touching of face, tugging on or covering ears, increased breathing rate, panting, excessive fidgeting, clock watching, head turning, pacing or jumpiness, trembling, unusual perspiration, goose bumps, and/or rigid posture with minimal body movements and arms close to sides.
In other words, if you’re late for something or in a rush (“excessive fidgeting, clock watching”), you might be a terrorist. If you’ve been exercising (“increased breathing rate, panting,” “protruding or beating neck arteries”), you might be a terrorist.
On the other hand, if you’re tired (“trance-like gaze,” “exaggerated yawning”) you also might be a terrorist. Yet, if you’re energetic or perhaps drank too much coffee (“wide open ‘flashbulb eyes,’” “pacing or jumpy,” “trembling,” “unusual perspiration,” “excessive fidgeting”), you might also be a terrorist.

Exclusive: Why Can’t You Smoke Pot? Because Lobbyists Are Getting Rich Off of the War on Drugs

John Lovell is a lobbyist who makes a lot of money from making sure you can’t smoke a joint. That’s his job. He’s a lobbyist for the police unions in Sacramento, and he is a driving force behind grabbing Federal dollars to shut down the California marijuana industry. I’ll get to the evidence on this important story in a bit, but first, some context.

Is Your New HDTV Watching You?

We began to wonder exactly what data Samsung collects from its new “eyes and ears” and how it and other companies intend use it, which raises the following questions:
* Can Samsung or Samsung-authorized companies watch you watching your Samsung TV?
* Do the televisions send a user ID or the TV’s serial number to the Samsung cloud whenever it has an Internet connection?
* Does Samsung cross reference a user ID or facial scan to your warranty registration information, such as name, address etc.?
* Can a person or company listen to you, at will, via the microphone and Internet connection?
* Does Samsung’s cloud store all this information? How secure is this extremely personal data?
* Can a hacker intercept this data or view you via the built in camera?
From a standpoint of a corporate culture, SAMSUNG has always been in love with the future.
But if the future looks this dystopian, in terms of potential data collected, sorted, sold, and transmitted, I think I am going to stay a lot "lower-tech" in terms of my television preferences, for as long as humanly possible.

FBI & Homeland Security Caught Spying On Visitors To Prepper Sites

The popular disaster preparedness website, SurvivalBlog.com, was recently advised by an anonymous tip that federal agencies were tracking users to the site using a tracking cookies.
After reporting the incident the story made headlines across on numerous prepping and alternative media websites which triggered many webmasters to check their own traffic for similar unconstitutional invasions of privacy by the federal government.
Upon doing so many sites have learned that the federal government is tracking the online activity of visitor’s to their websites as well.

Three people arrested in Toulouse massacre investigation

At the moment, the man, who has been identified as Mohammed Merah, 24, a French citizen of Algerian origin, resident in Toulouse, is shut in a flat surrounded by the police special forces.
In less than 24 hours the story changed from the killer is a Neo Nazi to he is a Muslim Jihadist.

'There's a monster on the loose': Sarkozy's warning as it's revealed Toulouse serial killer could have filmed horrific murders using camera recommended by Breivik

Funny how the 9 children murdered by an American soldier (or soldiers) in Afghanistan last week didn't get the kind of news coverage these 3 children are.
Sarkozy says there is a Monster on the loose. Why is it monstrous in France but not on Afghanistan?

Story changes yet again - French shooting suspect not jailed in Afghanistan

French Interior Minister Claude Gueant said Merah had been to Pakistan and Afghanistan, and had carried out his killings in revenge for French military involvement abroad.
In Pakistan, an intelligence official who declined to be identified said Merah had never been arrested there. "We have no information about him," the Pakistani official said.

Gunman dies in hail of bullets as French siege ends

A 23-year-old gunman who said al Qaeda inspired him to kill seven people in France died in a hail of bullets on Thursday as he scrambled out of a ground-floor window during a gunbattle with elite police commandos.
How very convenient. The patsy is eliminated before he can challenge the official fairy tale.

French Terror Attack: All the Hallmarks of an Intelligence Psy-op and False Flag

More specifically, Merah was handled by France’s DCRI intelligence service “for years,” according to Claude Guéant, the interior minister.

The Return of Gladio And The Rebirth of Terror Under French Tyrant Nicolas Sarkrazy

Vincenzo Vinciguerra, an Italian neo-fascist and terrorist, described in 1984 the existence of a shadow network of military officials and political leaders in Italy who frequently organized terror attacks to keep the country within the sphere of right-wing politics...
"You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security."
Patrick Henningsen offers a better history of Gladio in his article, written in December 2011, called, "Is Operation GLADIO on the rebound in Europe?" "Readers should note," said Henningsen, "that GLADIO was officially active only 20 years ago, not a long time in terms of politics and the military." He ended his article by writing, "GLADIO 2.0 is in motion." It's hard to argue with that, especially in light of this latest tragedy in France.

Is it an Israeli False Flag Again?

Israeli press reported this evening that French gunman Mohamed Merah had been on a trip to Israel in the past.
According to the report, Merah's passport had Israeli stamps in it. The purpose of his visit is unknown. Israeli analysts suspect he was either trying to visit the Palestinian territories or preparing for a terror attack.
However, I won’t rule out the possibility that Merah was actually trained by Israeli forces. Marah may have conducted a false flag operation. By way of deception is, after all, the Mossad’s motto.

'Al Qaeda' Killer's Extensive Links To French Authorities

Brit Dee, Contributor
Activist Post
Whilst French authorities claimed to want to end the standoff peacefully and take Merah alive, the siege's fatal finale conveniently removes from the picture a suspect who appears to have had a great deal of contact with both the French intelligence services and the police -- and even with the US military.
French interior minister Claude Guéant yesterday revealed that Merah had been on the radar of the DCRI -- France's domestic intelligence agency -- "for years".It has since transpired that Merah was questioned by the intelligence service as recently as November 2011, after being summoned to explain trips he had made to Afghanistan and Pakistan. Astonishingly, Merah was reportedly granted freedom to leave by his French intelligence questioners after providing them with photographs supporting his claims of having merely been on an innocent tourist holiday.

French gunman talked about 'cars, bikes, girls'

Paris: Just a few weeks ago, Mohamed Merah partied at a nightclub, and an acquaintance noticed nothing out of the ordinary. Another friend said the former car body shop worker liked to talk about "cars, bikes, girls and sports”.
So why is French Intelligence claiming this guy was "on their radar?" The claim that he sought revenge for what he saw while jailed in Afghanistan has collapsed with the revelation he was never in jail in Afghanistan and was still in France during the time he was claimed to be in jail in Afghanistan. More and more it looks like this guy was a patsy for a false-flag operation to build sympathy for Israel and a "wag the dog" to take the media focus off of the massacre of 16 civilians (9 children) by Americans in Afghanistan earlier this month.

Is it an Israeli False Flag Again?

Israeli press reported this evening that French gunman Mohamed Merah had been on a trip to Israel in the past.
According to the report, Merah's passport had Israeli stamps in it. The purpose of his visit is unknown. Israeli analysts suspect he was either trying to visit the Palestinian territories or preparing for a terror attack.
However, I won’t rule out the possibility that Merah was actually trained by Israeli forces. Marah may have conducted a false flag operation. By way of deception is, after all, the Mossad’s motto.
Read the story of Naeim Giladi, an Israeli agent operating in Iraq in the late 1940’s.
My sympathy pours out for these innocent people, slaughtered in cold blood in front of that Jewish school in Toulouse.
But then, my cynical logic kicks in, and I have to ask: who benefits?
Right now, with elections coming up, the only logical answer is: President Nicolas Sarkozy, who has been massively, generously pro-Israeli in his foreign policy.
I can assure you that Israel doesn't want that support diminished through, perhaps, an election of a Marine Le Pen, Francois Bayrou, or Francois Hollande.
Sarkozy is now being feted as the "hero", "Le Grand Homme", (the great man), for having gotten the "bad guy", while France (and its Jewish communities) collectively breathe a sigh of relief: how convenient.
Primary elections happen less than a month from now, with primaries happening on 22 April, and final elections on 6 May. Sarkozy may well ride this event right down to a comfortable victory over his opponents.
And for those of you in our reading audience who are already screaming that this is impossible, I would encourage you to evaluate the following.
Please pay close attention to just how incredibly quickly the suspect was identified after this terrible incident took place.
And how magnificently convenient for all that the suspect wasn't taken alive (where he could, possibly blabbed at trial about who actually put him up to this), but taken down in a hail of bullets before he could be arrested.
These are not coincidences.

Is nothing off limits? Now Google plans to spy on background noise in your phone calls to bombard you with tailored adverts

Adverts could soon be tailored according to the background noise around you when using your smartphone, if a patent application by Google becomes reality.
The search engine giant has filed for a patent called ‘Advertising based on environmental conditions’.
As that title implies, it’s not just background sounds that could be used to determine what adverts you seen on your mobile phone. The patent also describes using ‘temperature, humidity, light and air composition’ to produced targeted adverts.
The application said: ‘A web browser or search engine located at the user's site may obtain information on the environment (e.g., temperature, humidity, light, sound, air composition) from sensors.

Anti-Arab soccer fans rampage in shopping centre – but no arrests

Buoyed by a home win, Jewish fans of football club Beitar Jerusalem this week rampaged through a nearby shopping centre following an evening match, attacking Arab workers and shoppers in one of the worst racial brawls seen in the city in recent years.
The entire episode, which occurred at Jerusalem's Malha Mall on Monday night, was captured on closed-circuit television, but Israeli police made no arrests, and the incident received no media attention until yesterday, prompting fury in Israel's blogosphere.

Mystery of Programming Language Used in Duqu Framework Solved

Earlier this month, researchers from Kaspersky Lab reached out to the security and programming community in an effort to help solve a mystery related to “Duqu”, the Trojan often referred to as “Son of Stuxnet”, which surfaced in October 2010.
The mystery rested in a section of code written in an unknown programming language and used in the Duqu Framework, a portion of the Payload DLL used by the Trojan to interact with Command & Control (C&C) servers after the malware infected a system.
While Kaspersky Lab, as well as other vendors and researchers, have produced significant research on the malware since its discovery, a certain component of the malware baffled researchers and analysts, ultimately triggering the Moscow-based security firm to reach out for help.

Leader of Mali coup received officer training from AFRICOM

McClatchy Newspapers
NAIROBI, Kenya — The leader of the military coup that toppled the democratic government of the West African nation of Mali this week underwent basic officer training in the United States, the Obama administration acknowledged Friday.
Capt. Amadou Sanoga, who is the apparent leader of the group of junior officers that toppled the government of President Amadou Toumani Toure, “participated in several U.S.-funded International Military Education and Training (IMET) programs in the United States, including basic officer training,” the U.S. military’s Africa Command said in an email to McClatchy Newspapers.
“We have regularly had small teams traveling in and out of Mali to conduct specific training that has been requested by the Malian government and military,” said Nicole Dalrymple, a spokeswoman for the Africa Command, known as Africom, in an emailed response to questions.

Renner said in her email that the U.S. government “provided almost $138 million dollars in foreign assistance for Mali.” Most of that money went to development assistance and global health programs. About $600,000 was allocated for military training. The overall allocation had been expected to rise this year to about $144 million, Renner said.

The EU authorizes ground strikes in Somalia

The European Union authorised its navies to strike Somali pirate equipment on land as foreign ministers on Friday beefed up the anti-piracy mission and extended it until December 2014.
The EU’s Operation Atalanta has deployed between five and 10 warships off the Somali coast since 2008 to escort humanitarian aid shipments and thwart pirate raids on commercial vessels using vital shipping lanes.
Foreign ministers meeting in Brussels agreed to extend “the force’s area of operations to include Somali coastal territory as well as its territorial and internal waters,” said an EU statement.
Even though I abhor the violence of many incidents encountered at the hands of Somali pirates, there is another side to this story, which needs to be made very public.The most prized catch of the Somali seas is the yellow fin tuna, yet these fish have been found to have surprisingly high traces of such toxic chemicals as cadmium, mercury and radioactive uranium. Despite this, these same fish are sold all across Europe without the requirement to disclose the chemicals or their country of origin. In the latter part of the 20th Century, a growing expense to both private corporations and governments has been the disposal of waste -- biological from hospitals and labs, toxic waste from factories and industry and nuclear waste from medical and military use. Even the least expensive disposal of these toxic materials can cost $250 per ton. But what if a company offered to dispose of these toxic wastes for just $2.50 per ton? You can see where this story is going. In the mid-90s, a Swiss firm, Achair Partners, and an Italian company, Progresso, offered their quick toxic waste disposal services to a host of European nations. The waste was loaded on to their ships and sailed away. Oh yes, there was talk and plans were made for giant incinerators to neutralize the poisons. It was all supposed to be ecological. But none of the contractors -- mostly European nations -- bothered much to check that out. Yes, the waste was loaded on to their ships and sailed away... only to be dumped in the shallow ocean off Somalia. After the 2005 tsunami, much of the once submerged waste found it way to the beaches where the broken containers spread debris and toxic particles inland. Nick Nuttall, a UN Environment Program spokesman, said that there are reports from villagers of a wide range of medical problems like mouth bleeds, abdominal hemorrhages, unusual skin disorders and breathing difficulties in many of the northern Somali villages like Hobbio and Benadir. What? You never heard of this before? Faced with no government to protect them from the pollution of their ocean, and the depletion of their only source of food, they organized against the dumping. They organized locally in tribes, and the tribes organized clans. With no coast guard, the Somali fishermen tried to thwart off the huge ships that were dumping uranium, mercury, lead, medical waste and other toxins on their food supply and livelihood. They knew their small effort would have little effect on the huge dumping companies... but maybe if the world knew... maybe the world would stop them.

Israeli Violation of Lebanese Airspace Unacceptable - Russia

The violation of Lebanese airspace by the Israeli Air Force is unacceptable, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday after a meeting with his Lebanese counterpart.
Aircraft of the Israeli air force regularly cross into Lebanese territory, regardless of numerous UN warnings to stop airspace violations. Such actions are in breach of the UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which brokered a ceasefire in the 2006 Israeli-Lebanese conflict.
"We consider violating this resolution unacceptable, especially as far as respect for Lebanon’s sovereignty and airspace is concerned. Regrettably this is a regular violation by the Israeli air force,” Lavrov said.

Bahrain Democracy Movement Is The Real Thing

It has been one year since Saudi Arabian forces entered Bahrain to rescue the dictatorial Bahraini regime against a people’s popular revolution for democracy.
Press TV has interviewed Dr. Kevin Barrett, author & Islamic Studies expert from Wisconsin about the relationships between the Al-Khalifa regime, Saudi Arabia and the US and how these external partners have influenced the popular revolution in Bahrain.
He also discusses the muted way which the UN as well as other human rights organizations are responding to the human rights violations being carried out by the Bahraini rulers against the people.
What follows is an approximate transcription of the interview.

'Tanks in the streets of Beijing': Chinese leaders order internet whitewash amid rumours of attempted military coup

Mr Bo, the Party Secretary of the mega-city of Chongqing in west China, was widely tipped to join the all-powerful, nine-strong Politburo Standing Committee in the autumn.
But he was sacked after his right-hand man and police chief, Wang Lijun, sought asylum at a U.S. consulate last month.
China has become a major roadblock to the US plans to grab Mideast oil. Did the US try to encourage a pro-American coup inside the Chinese government, and did the plan just explode in their faces?
Selon un article de la revue allemande Der Spiegel, l’Union européenne est le plus important exportateur d’armes vers l’Arabie Saoudite. De tous les membres de l’Union, la France arrive au premier rang des exportations avec 2168,6 millions d’euros en 2010. En seconde position, loin derrière, vient l’Italie avec 435,3 millions d’euros, devançant la Grande-Bretagne avec 328,8 millions d’euros en exportations.
Source: Der Spiegel

En armant le royaume saoudien, les membres de l’Union transgressent les règles européennes sur le contrôle des exportations, rappelle Der Spiegel citant la section du règlement sur la non-prolifération et le désarmement intitulée
Contrôles des exportations à des fins de sécurité II - Équipements militaires, laquelle stipule :
[…] les États membres [sont] déterminés à empêcher les exportations de technologie et d'équipements militaires qui pourraient être utilisés à des fins indésirables telles que la répression interne ou l'agression internationale, ou pour contribuer à l'instabilité régionale.
Or, une partie des armes que les pays de l’Union ont vendues à l’Arabie Saoudite se sont ultimement retrouvées dans les mains de « rebelles » libyens et syriens, contribuant ainsi considérablement à l’agression internationale et à l’instabilité régionale : « L'Arabie Saoudite et surtout le Qatar ont contribué au développement des événements en Syrie et en Libye en fournissant des armes, un appui financier, des combattants clandestins, ainsi qu'un appui diplomatique solide aux soi-disant "conseils de transitions". »

De plus, comme le rappelle Der Spiegel, l’Arabie Saoudite a participé à la violente répression des révoltes populaires à Bahreïn, révoltes et répressions somme toute ignorées par les médias occidentaux.
Les membres de l'Union, surtout la France, se disent préoccupés par les droits humains en Libye et en Syrie, et pourtant, ils ferment les yeux sur le mépris de l’Arabie Saoudite envers ces mêmes droits humains. Ils sont les principaux fournisseurs de l'armement de ce régime monarchique, l'un des les plus répressifs de la planète, servant les intérêts stratégiques des États-Unis et de l'OTAN au Moyen-Orient.

Le magazine allemand note que le commerce mondial des armes est en plein essor, ayant connu une « augmentation de 24% durant les cinq dernières années, malgré les efforts visant à l’endiguer ».
(EU Nations Sell the Most Arms to Saudi Arabia, Der Spiegel, 19 mars 2012.)
Les plus importants exportateurs d’armes sont paradoxalement les pays ayant le devoir de préserver la paix, à savoir les membres du Conseil de sécurité de l’ONU : Les États-Unis, la Russie, la France, le Royaume-Uni et la Chine. (Richard F. Grimmett, CRS Report for Congress; Conventional Arms Transfers to Developing Nations, 2003-2010 , 22 septembre 2011.)

Nuclear Arms Race Continues Undercover at Lawrence Livermore Lab and Site 300

YouTube -- AbbyMediaRoots
Abby and Robbie Martin grew up in Pleasanton, CA, a city located ten miles from the Lawrence Livermore National Lab (LLNL), a secret nuclear weapons production facility. They initially set out to explore the psychological impacts of taking nuclear testing into virtual space. But as their investigation unfolded, they found that the LLNL—in conjunction with Site 300—have built an impressive greenwashing PR campaign cloaking a dark reality.

20yr CIA Veteran: Al-Qaeda Doesn't Exist. It didn't exist when bin Laden was alive, and it doesn't exist now.

Pentagon says it has no records of bin Laden's death; CIA hasn't answered open records request

The Pentagon told the AP this month it could not locate any photographs or video taken during the raid or showing bin Laden's body. It also said it could not find any images of bin Laden's body on the Navy aircraft carrier where the al-Qaida leader's body was taken.
The Pentagon said it could not find any death certificate, autopsy report or results of DNA identification tests for bin Laden, or any pre-raid materials discussing how the government planned to dispose of bin Laden's body if he were killed. It said it searched files at the Pentagon, U.S. Special Operations Command in Tampa, Fla., and the Navy command in San Diego that controls the USS Carl Vinson, the aircraft carrier used in the mission.

Allawi Reiterates Warnings of Iraq’s ‘Emerging Dictatorship’

In an interview today with the Washington Times, former Iraqi Prime Minister and Iraqiya party leader Ayad Allawi reiterated his regular warnings of an “emerging dictatorship” in the nation, warning that Maliki continuing to centralize power under his control.
Allawi’s Iraqiya Party threatened earlier this week to withdraw its ministers from the coalition government unless Maliki agreed to a number of concessions, notably ending summary detentions and a general amnesty for those being held on political charges.
Great to see how much "progress" has been made in Iraq since the end of the US occupation, isn't it?!?
And, for all the dead Iraqis killed and wounded; for all the Americans killed and wounded, and all the money spent, the ultimate benefactor of the US invasion and occupation winds up being .....IRAN?!?
IF you are having more than a little difficulty wrapping your head around this massive unintended consequence, which apparently NO ONE in the State Department, White House, or Pentagon saw coming, courtesy of its "deBaathification" process in Iraq, welcome to my world!

Pardoned journalist imprisoned at President Obama's request

Why is President Obama keeping Yemeni journalist in prison?
A Yemeni journalist, who worked for ABC News and the Washington
Post, and is cited by the New York Times as an Al-Qaeda expert, was
moments away from being released from a Yemeni prison, but now
remains there indefinitely at President Obama's request.

Having committed no real crimes to speak of, Abdulelah Haider Shaye
is perhaps guilty of exposing the U.S. involvement in the killing
of 14 women and 21 children in a so-called strike on Al-Qaeda
militants. A fact that President Obama wanted to be kept secret.

Shaye photographed remnants of Tomahawk cruise missiles and cluster
bombs, neither of which are in the Yemeni military's arsenal, and
revealed the U.S. role in the strikes which killed women, children,
and the elderly.

Perhaps the President is worried that if word gets out they will
ask for his Nobel Peace Prize back...

THE MILITARIZATION OF THE FAR-EAST: US Threatens China's Major Cities: America's Strategic Naval Base in Korea

From the very outset the idea to construct a naval base in Korea as "Another US Naval Base", on Jeju Island, strategically located at about 200 miles from China’s coastline, has broad ramifications.
It is not strictly a Korea-US issue. It affects the entire Northeast Asian region.
China is drawn into a confrontational geopolitical structure, which is predicated on the de facto militarization of the Korean Peninsula and much of the Northeast Asia region, particularly in the context of “America’s strategic naval base as a direct military threat to China.”
The Construction of "Another US Naval Base" on Jeju Island, Korea is not only a regional issue, it has global military ramifications
Of course, no mention of this in US corporate media; not a peep at all.
It has been reported in South Korean media that the proposed Navy base will be a port-of-call for U.S. warships including Aegis destroyers (outfitted with “missile defense” systems), aircraft carriers, and nuclear submarines. The Navy base would be 300 miles from the Chinese mainland. A Navy base on Jeju Island will become a key military target as the Obama administration “pivots” its foreign and military policy toward the Asia-Pacific. The Pentagon is now essentially doubling its military presence in the region as a way to “contain and control” China. China imports 60% of its oil on ships. The Navy base on Jeju would give the U.S., Japan, and South Korean military forces a strategic post from which to choke off China’s ability to import oil thus giving the U.S. the keys to China’s economic engine.

Agenda 21 on Steroids

The Draft International Covenant on Environment and Development is Agenda 21 on steroids. If you take the word “Environment” out of the title (which seems to be thrown in to placate you), and call this the International Covenant on Development, you will more clearly see the intent of this manifesto.
The Covenant is intended to become a binding Global Treaty and the template for international law. International attorneys have been hammering this out for about 16 years. The 4th draft was issued in 2010.
The Covenant is about control of development, and social engineering, by the United Nations. Remember, the United Nations is a trade organization funded by money from corporations, organizations and associations funded by corporations, and foreign governments.

Proposed UN Environmental Constitution For The World Would Establish An Incredibly Repressive System Of Global Governance

Most people have no idea that the United Nations has been drafting an environmental constitution for the world that is intended to supersede all existing national laws. This document has a working title of "Draft International Covenant on Environment and Development" and you can read the entire thing right here. Work on this proposed world environmental constitution has been going on since 1995, and the fourth edition was issued to UN member states on September 22nd, 2010. This document is intended to become a permanent binding treaty and it would establish an incredibly repressive system of global governance. This "covenant", as it is being called, claims authority over the entire global environment and everything that affects it.

U.N. Policy Paper Outlines 7 Building Blocks for 'Heavy-Handed' World Government

Activist Post

The fact that the world is being restructured from decentralized diversity to collectivized hierarchy by an authoritarian regime cloaked in green trappings can hardly be disputed.

The final push toward the next and perhaps final phase may be announced this June at the 2012 U.N. Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

A Scientific American
editorial by Gary Stix highlights a policy article written by several dozen scientists that appeared online March 15 in the journal Science.

The conclusions reached by the scientists, as well as the editorial from a staff member of Scientific American are incredibly unscientific and fly in the face of the
many thousands of independent scientists and researchers who have refuted the theory of man-made global warming. Regardless, this small group pushes ahead with their suggestions that the only way to combat such a global catastrophe is of course to solve it through global government. And not just any global government, but one that Scientific American suggests should be "heavy-handed (in its) transnational enforcement powers."

The policy paper entitled, "Navigating the Anthropocene: Improving Earth System Governance" is one of the most blatantly authoritarian among the incrementally more open policy papers that we are witnessing, as global governance continues on its runaway path in the name of saving humanity from itself.
Opening with a summary, the conclusions and solutions are clear:
Science assessments indicate that human activities are moving several of Earth's sub-systems outside the range of natural variability typical for the previous 500,000 years (1, 2). Human societies must now change course and steer away from critical tipping points in the Earth system that might lead to rapid and irreversible change (3). This requires fundamental reorientation and restructuring of national and international institutions toward more effective Earth system governance and planetary stewardship. (Source)
The full text of the article is available for a fee which we paid for access, and we can tell you that it is centered around the "Building Blocks" that form the foundation for the edifice of a one-world government. These building blocks have been repeated throughout globalist literature, so this is nothing necessarily new, but the fact that they fall within the context of at best a hotly disputed assertion that humans are to blame for catastrophically altering their environment -- namely through climate change -- indicates that their agenda must move forward, factually based or not. (All section titles are paraphrased.)

Consolidating global agencies -- The globalist framework has been established through agencies like the United Nations, World Trade Organization, World Bank, and their countless tentacles, which have formed a web of incredibly corrupt and inefficient bureaucracy that most thinking people would love to see eradicated. However, as opposed to dismantling these agencies as complete failures, there is a proposal to unify them further under the green umbrella. The suggested organization would be called the UN Sustainable Development Council.

Integrating 'Sustainable Development' to the local level (Agenda 21) -- Once such a council is established, it will efficiently and heavy-handedly dictate down the pyramid of global control until it reaches each and every community. This is the stated
objective of Agenda 21 as a way to transform the 21st century by centralizing power and eradicating individual freedom. When this goal is understood, then it becomes quite clear that when we see similar rules put in place for disparate nations in the areas of food, banking, and the eradication of civil liberties, it is part of this coordinated plan toward planetary governance. Local communities become viewed merely as outposts for resistance and must be made to comply with the dictates of the pyramid's capstone.

Bringing emerging technologies under global control -- Interestingly,
geo-engineering is openly mentioned here, despite it being still considered a fringe conspiracy theory under the name of Chemtrails. Nanotechnology, biotechnology, and other scientific endeavors must also be brought under global control by a worldwide council that presumably will lay claim to this intellectual capital and resource generation. There is discussion about a framework of conventions to theoretically ensure that all participants adhere to an agreed-upon basis for research and implementation.

But has this ever really worked before? We have a convention against the use of
biological warfare; a convention against the use of most non-lethal weapons, a convention against torture, etc., and yet our world is seeing only a ramping-up these activities. The conventions merely provide a framework for enabling the control and allocation of whatever it is that they are designed to address -- rarely are they a method to prevent and deter abuse.

The creation of a global legal and economic framework -- This is one of the most insidious, as it literally encourages local laws and economic policies to be rewritten with the goal of furthering a global matrix of interconnected bureaucracies that all but eradicate the ability of local communities (or countries) to opt-out of this dictatorial mission. The paper uses the word "discrimination" in a most accurate way to promote only green initiatives. There are no specifics given, but we only need to look at the
"green" and "alternative" businesses that have been promoted (and invested in) by government to see that most have been an abject failure, leading to the bankruptcy of several in near-record time. It is much too early for the proposal of the largest government the world has ever known to lay claim as being experts in resource management and alternative energy. If this is put into effect on a global scale based on the small-scale examples we have seen so far, we will witness the utter implosion of the global economy, and a mass reduction in the standard of living for the average person, as well as the inability for entrepreneurs to circumvent such a system if it should fail. (Source)

Consensus-based decision making becomes majority rule -- This is yet another very dangerous concept, as is the antithesis to a functioning republic. The paper highlights the "efficiency in decision-making" that is the hallmark of majority-based rule, versus that of a consensus. And there is a reason for this -- because every individual has an innate right to participate in the very decisions which will most impact their life. The decision for global governance and sweeping policy changes right down to the local level are the last decisions that should be made hastily. Just one example was the mass agreement to the validity of man-made global warming, which resulted in a carbon credits market, and other transformative policies, only to be swayed the other direction when evidence of a cover-up known as Climategate revealed a distorted picture of the true scientific data, as well as the
hidden political and economic agendas. A free society is indeed a transparent one, but that will never flourish under a panel of experts reporting to select councils and governed by regents, because the independent researcher has no place in such a system.

Legitimacy and accountability of stronger intergovernmental institutions -- Here they admit that global governance removes local sovereignty, and try to work their way around the issue by proposing a representative system, no doubt to give the illusion that the people have a say in what gets decided. "Global governance through UN-type institutions tends to give a larger role to international and domestic bureaucracies, at the cost of national parliaments and the direct involvement of citizens." They claim that accountability and decision-making will be strengthened "through special rights enshrined in agreements or stronger participation in councils that govern resources and in commissions that hear complaints." They also call for more transparency as an "effective accountability mechanism". Yet, the entire report is based on cherry-picked and unproven science. Finally, this section also discusses accounting for "imbalances in the strength" among different countries, probably to make sure the right countries (the G20) actually have the power, much like the U.N. Security Council.

The creation of global financial instruments -- I think we all have learned enough about the inherent toxicity of "financial instruments" such as derivatives and the carbon market scam. The paper alludes to an "emissions market" which will be employed to ensure that poorer countries receive financial support through a system of "equity and fairness." When has this happened even once within any initiative promoted by globalist interests? The World Trade Organization has been an abject failure; the World Health Organization has been a disaster; and the IMF has been perhaps the most blatantly corrupt and predatory of them all. These systems do nothing to empower and support the poor; they are there to create the very terms and compliance that is required to co-opt their resources and productivity and loot sovereign nations. (

To enshrine these building blocks of world governance, it is proposed that there needs to be a "constitutional moment" in the reordering of world politics, similar to what followed WWII. It is disingenuously implied that the international norms set for human rights serve as an example for a similarly standardized approach to counter the destruction of the environment.

It is admitted that the birthplace of Agenda 21, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (1992), will once again see a "test of politcal will" to implement drastic changes. Those changes will continue to radically build upon the reduction in national sovereignty that we have witnessed across the board. They are changes which will no doubt continue to erode individual freedom and contribute to the massive financial hardship we are being subjected to through authoritarian, centralized rule by a fascistic cabal of bankers and politicians that collude to keep humanity from realizing its true potential.

There must be mass outrage to such a degree that even their plan for "majority rule" cannot succeed. A rising tide of protest and civil disobedience can easily smash each one of the building blocks above. The Achilles Heel of their plan is resistance to any initiative that would remove the power of local communities to support and sustain themselves, and instead force sworn fealty to a group of overlords who admit to their desire to impose a scientific dictatorship to be ruled by councils of experts. It has been these so-called experts, at the behest of governments throughout history, who have led to nothing short of a
mass murder machine. We need to keep that in mind as they attempt to guilt trip us into compliance with their "humanitarian" agenda.

Supreme Court rules against feds!

The Environmental Protection Agency cannot issue a “drive-by” decision that a parcel of land is a protected wetlands and prohibit the owner from using it, and then refuse to hear any challenges to such decisions.
But Nixon had to collateralize that debt somehow, and he hit upon the plan of quietly setting aside huge tracts of American land with their mineral rights in reserve to cover the outstanding debts. But since the American people were already angered over the war in Vietnam, Nixon couldn't very well admit that he was apportioning off chunks of the United States to the holders of foreign debt. So, Nixon invented the Environmental Protection Agency and passed draconian environmental laws which served to grab land with vast natural resources away from the owners and lock it away, and even more, prove to the holders of the foreign debt that US citizens were not drilling. mining, or otherwise developing those resources. From that day to this, as the government sinks deeper into debt, the government grabs more and more land, declares it a wilderness or "roadless area" or "heritage river" or "wetlands" or any one of over a dozen other such obfuscated labels, but in the end the result is the same. We The People may not use the land, in many cases are not even allowed to enter the land.

Israel’s Nuclear Triggers: Secret files reveal brazen espionage and dangerous immunity

by Grant F Smith

FBI files detailing Israel’s stealth acquisition of U.S. nuclear triggers were declassified and released on Dec. 28, 2011. The FBI’s secret Portland and Los Angeles inter-office communications were originally scheduled for release in the year 2036. Their availability today reveals how Israel’s elite spy networks acquire U.S. nuclear technologies while evading criminal and diplomatic consequences.

A kryton is a gas-filled tube used as a high-speed switch. U.S. State Department munitions licenses are needed to export krytons because they can be used as triggers for nuclear weapons. California-based MILCO International Inc. shipped 15 orders totaling 800 krytons through an intermediary to the Israeli Ministry of Defense between 1979 and 1983.
MILCO obtained the krytons from EG&G Inc. After the U.S. government rejected several requests for kryton export licenses to Israel, Arnon Milchan’s Heli Trading Company brokered the transactions with MILCO. Milchan is an Israeli movie producer who became successful in Hollywood for such movies as Brazil, JFK, and Pretty Woman.
The FBI file reveals that after the illicit kryton exports were discovered, a U.S. attorney tried to flip MILCO President Richard Kelly Smyth to implicate Milchan during intense plea bargaining.
The gambit failed, and in May 1984 Smyth was indicted on 30 counts of smuggling and making false statements. Smyth and his wife promptly fled to Israel and remained at large until captured in Malaga, Spain, in July 2001 after Richard Smyth applied for Social Security benefits. INTERPOL arrested Smyth and extradited him to the United States, where he pleaded guilty to violating the U.S. Arms Export Control Act.
In November 2001, Smyth was sentenced to 40 years in prison and fined $20,000, though he was freed within four years because of his advancing age.

Trace detection of plutonium in the city of Iwaki 2012/03/21 (Wed)
“Was the child continue to investigate patiently in the city of Iwaki iron lines and α in the blog’s “, has been detected (Pu-238, Pu-239, Pu-240) plutonium of trace from the iron plate of Exposed in the fields has been reported with was.
Professor Masayoshi Yamamoto, Kanazawa University, Centre for Environmental Studies Japan Sea ring is inspected, from the results Pu238/Pu239, assertive and is derived from Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant from 240 radioactivity ratio was.
In addition, Pu239, 240/Cs-137 radioactivity ratio has become 200 times the estimate of the government, as well as to distribution in plaques that radioactive iodine and radioactive silver, (the difference of behavior) also Fractionation plutonium and is presumed to exist if there has been.
Personally infer about the emission ratio, and not of being also affects the distribution of (Np-239) is the parent nuclide of neptunium (Pu-239) plutonium.
For neptunium from that half-life 2.36 Sun, which is the point I think from now on can not be proven is impatient It should be noted.
(Comments of Dr. Yamamoto)
· We will send the measurement results.
· Pu is detected, and was surprised to be honest.
· Pu is already widely in the nuclear test, are distributed at low levels.
· With this Pu, Pu238/Pu239, 240 radioactivity ratio is about 0.03.
· This ratio is 0.8 this is clearly high, and contains the primary origin of Pu.
· Government estimates of emissions is 3.
· Exposed in the fields of iron and to think and not the adhesion of Pu of nuclear testing,
· you made ​​me think why and what ratio is low.
· It may also lower the ratio of Pu with 0.8 instead of all three has been released.
· Pu239, 9.0E-5 in the ratio of radioactivity 240/Cs-137, 200 times the government estimate of 4.3E-7, Pu has been detected and many more. It seems that it is for Fractionation (difference of behavior) is present perhaps.

Patience investigation was continued strongly in Iwaki city, there was report that with Α line and [burogu] of the griddle, minute plutonium (Pu-238, Pu-239 and Pu-240) was detected from Nozarasi’s griddle.
Governmental ceremony Mr. Yamamoto of the Kanazawa university ring Japanese sea area mental study center inspects, it was concluded that from the result it is something of Fukushima first nuclear origin from Pu238/Pu239,240 radioactivity ratio.
Furthermore, Pu239,240/Cs-137 radioactivity ratio has reached 200 times that of estimator of government, when radioactive iodine and the radioactive silver are distributed to unevenness, that it is guessed whether in the same way, either plutonium is not that [hurakushiyoneshiyon] (difference of behavior) exists.
That you guess whether privately it is not to have an influence on also the distribution circumstance of the neptunium (Np-239) which is parent nuclide of plutonium (Pu-239) concerning discharge ratio.
Furthermore concerning neptunium half-life 2.36 days from the notion that where you say, from now the point where it cannot prove is the thinking which the tooth is itchy.
(The comment of Mr. Yamamoto)
· We send the measurement result.
· Pu was detected, the honest place was surprised.
· Pu is wide already with nuclear test, has been distributed low at level.
· This Pu being attached, Pu238/Pu239,240 radioactivity ratio is 0.03.
· The latest this ratio is high clearly with 0.8, includes Pu of nuclear origin.
· With discharge quantitative estimate of government 3 is.
· That Pu of nuclear test has not come in contact with Nozarasi’s griddle, when you think,
· Why, that it is made to think whether ratio is low.
· Don’t you think? everything 3 are not and is also a possibility Pu which has the ratio whose [te] 0.8 is low being discharged.
· Furthermore Pu239,240/Cs-137 radioactivity ratio with 9.0E-5, reaches 200 times that of estimator 4.3E-7 of government, Pu is mainly detected. Perhaps it is thought that is, because [hurakushiyoneshiyon] (difference of behavior) exists.

Thermal Images Reveal Scattered MOX Fuel At Fukushima Reactor 3

Using thermal aerial imaging, analysts have been able to show the location of mixed Plutonium Uranium fuel scattered around Fukushima nuclear reactor 3.

Goddards journal has release a video which overlays thermal imaging of reactor 3 at the Fukushima nuclear reactor on top of aerial video released by TEPCO.
The analysis reveals the locations where the mixed Plutonium and Uranium (MOX) nuclear fuel rods have been scattered around the site following the massive nuclear explosion that occurred in reactor 3 which has sent plutonium around the world, with levels recently being detected 200 times above government reported levels 50 kilometers from the Fukushima nuclear plant.
The video, shown below, reveals that there are at least 3 hot spots containing overheating nuclear fuel outside of the well cap.
One of the hotspots is lying between the spend fuel pond and the well cap.

Because the trolly on the overhead crane sits directly over the well cap and obscures any heat signatures underneath it, and because we see linear heat signatures on either end of the trolly that could be connected as one continuous line, there may be a crack straight across the well cap.

Escobar on Fukushima email leak: 'Deleting data a cover-up'

It's emerged that at the height of Japan's nuclear crisis last March, the authorities in Fukushima concealed radiation data vital to safely evacuate people from that area. Japan has a computer system designed to predict the spread of radioactive releases. But local media reports say the prefecture's government deleted the e-mails detailing it.

Chemist: Plutonium 'fractionation' caused nuclear explosions at Fukushima

EXSKF has a full translation of the Japanese blog that reported on the email regarding Professor Masayoshi Yamamoto’s plutonium findings discussed yesterday here.
Some excerpts from the translation (Emphasis Added):
[...] Frankly, I am surprised that plutonium was detected [near Iwaki, 50km south of Fukushima Daiichi].
[...] the ratio of Pu239+240/Cs-137 is 9.0E-5, which is 200 times the government estimate of 4.3E-7, showing more plutonium being detected than the government estimate indicates. It is probably because of fractionation.
Right now, I am hoping to test for uranium, and Am-241 if possible.

Nuclear criticality explosions in Fukushima due to plutonium fractionation and the consequences for health; some questions from a physical chemist
[...] With regard to the nature of the explosion I make the following suggestion: the melting points and boiling points of plutonium and uranium oxides are not the same. The MP of plutonium oxide in MOX is 2701 degrees C but that of the Uranium oxide is 3120 degrees C (Popov et al 2000). Therefore when a mixture of these boils, there will be fractional distillation of the plutonium oxide, separation of the mixture, just as happens with alcohol distillation from alcohol water mixtures or the fractional distillation of crude oil. Thus plutonium will become concentrated in the vapour and in the nearest cooler areas were the vapour condenses. This would inevitably lead to a nuclear explosion when the concentration of plutonium exceeded the critical level for chain reaction. It is not only in MOX fuel that plutonium exists in nuclear reactors. It is produced as a result of the neutron irradiation of uranium fuel. [...]

Iwaki City, Fukushima Will Start Burning the Contaminated Disaster Debris in the City in April

Not a problem, says the city. The debris from the natural disaster (earthquake, tsunami) was doused with radioactive fallout from Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant.
As I wrote earlier today, plutonium isotopes were found in Iwaki City on a metal plate that had been outside since March 11, 2011, and they were of Fukushima I Nuke Plant origin.
But the city will start burning in earnest in April so that the city is debris-free by the end of 2013.
The residents of the city don't seem totally on board, but just like Tokyo's governor and Shimada City's mayor, the Iwaki City's unnamed officials (in the article below) say the city will do it anyway.
UNFLIPPING BELIEVABLE! HAVE THESE PEOPLE GONE ABSOLUTELY, FOAMING-AT-THE-MOUTH, BARKING-DOG MAD?!?!?
I cannot believe, for one moment, that the radiation levels are as low as city officials insist they are, from this process.

Fukushima Cover Up: Plume-Gate Tales from the Script: Inside the NRC FOIA Documents Part 2

Chernobyl, a single reactor core meltdown, spread radioactive contamination across the Northern Hemisphere: by some accounts, causing the deaths of an estimated 985,000 people worldwide.
To arrive at this seemingly impossible figure, scientists studied data between the years 1986 and 2004. Why data from 18 years?
Although some deaths from Chernobyl were immediate, the vast majority occurred in the years following the meltdown in what can be described as a ‘time-delayed effect’.

Bloomberg: Growing global threat of radiation-contaminated metal — Plutonium, weapons-grade uranium found — Chronic exposure to low doses of radiation can lead to cancer and birth defects

Title: Nuclear Risks at Bed, Bath & Beyond Show Hidden Danger of Scrap
Source: Bloomberg
Author: By Jonathan Tirone and Andrew MacAskill
Date: Mar 19, 2012
The discovery of radioactive tissue boxes at Bed, Bath & Beyond Inc. (BBBY) stores in January raised alarms among nuclear security officials and company executives over the growing global threat of contaminated scrap metal. [...]
Radioactive items used to power medical, military and industrial hardware are melted down and used in goods, driving up company costs as they withdraw tainted products and threatening the public’s health. [...]
Chronic exposure to low doses of radiation can lead to cataracts, cancer and birth defects, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. A 2005 study of more than 6,000 Taiwanese who lived in apartments built with radioactive reinforcing steel from 1983 to 2005 showed a statistically significant increase in leukemia and breast cancer. [...]
India and China were the top sources of radioactive goods shipped to the U.S. through 2008, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Bartley, a metallurgist who has tracked radioactive contamination since the early 1990s, said there’s no evidence the situation has improved.
Weapons-Grade Uranium & Plutonium
“The major risk we face in our industry is radiation,” said Paul de Bruin, radiation-safety chief for Jewometaal Stainless Processing BV, one of the world’s biggest stainless- steel scrap yards. “You can talk about security all you want, but I’ve found weapons-grade uranium in scrap. Where was the security?” [...]
Rotterdam-based Jewometaal, which found 145 nuclear items in scrap last year and 200 in 2010, reports incidents to Dutch authorities and the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency. De Bruin keeps pictures of the nuclear-fission chamber containing bomb-grade uranium and other scrap with plutonium that he’s uncovered using radiation monitors at his shipping yard. [...]

The article reassures that the IAEA is working on the situation: “The Vienna-based IAEA is working with the scrap-metal industry to draft more stringent rules to increase radiation monitoring, bolster reporting requirements and improve disposal”

  • 6,000 residents of Iitate village
  • One of the village’s former residents (now evacuated), who did not want to be named, said that Tweets sent out shortly after the explosions at the plant indicated that it was assumed that the village had already been evacuated
  • It had not
  • Younger residents in Iitate [tweeted] appeals for media coverage

From the very outset the idea to construct a naval base in Korea as "Another US Naval Base", on Jeju Island, stratically located at about 200 miles from China’s coastline, has broad ramifications.
It is not strictly a Korea-US issue. It affects the entire Northeast Asian region.
China is drawn into a confrontational geopolitical structure, which is predicated on the de facto militarization of the Korean Peninsula and much of the Northeast Asia region, particularly in the context of “America’s strategic naval base as a direct military threat to China.”

Iran:

US war game foreshadows Israeli attack on Iran

So, apparently U.S. authorities want to create an assumption that a war with Iran is inevitable, and the only remaining questions are, who is to launch the first strike, and when will it happen?
This probably explains why the U.S. sticks to the scenario under which it will be Israel who initiates the war. In that case, it will give the U.S. a plausible excuse for being involved with the sole purpose to defend its core ally.
Iranian leadership is many things, but stupid isn't one of them.
My bet will be that they will not initiate any strike, understanding that this would be the justification for Israel and the US attacking it.
However, neither American nor Israeli citizens have any appetite for such a war, so my best guess is, we are looking at some horrendous false flag to get this going.
And I can assure those in the bowels of power in DC that even though the US government may invoke some kind of state of emergency to quell dissent, this war, fought yet again (as was the war against Iraq) to "neutralize" one of Israel's "existential threats" in the region-of course, primarily with American blood and money - will have absolutely zero support on the part of the American people.
Putting it bluntly, to support a nuclear-armed, economically thriving country, which gets billions of American taxpayer dollars in monetary and military assistance - may well be viewed as near-treason against American citizens, perpetrated by a government which no longer represents them, but puts the geopolitical outcomes desired by a foreign government above the real needs and concerns of the American people.
And I would remind those in DC that those needs, right now, are tangibly pressing, and you avoid addressing them intelligently at your own political peril.

Israel preparing for war with Iran

Neve Gordon argues that recent Israeli raids on Gaza were not just about allocating more money to the defence budget but about preparing for war with Iran.
"What looks like a preparation for war, acts like a preparation for war, and quacks like a preparation for war, is a preparation for war, and not just a 'bluff' or a diversion tactic." (Aluf Benn, Editor-in-Chief, Haaretz newspaper)
In response to the recent assassination of Zuhair al-Qaisi, the secretary-general of the Popular Resistance Committees in the Gaza Strip, along with another fighter, Palestinians fired rockets at southern Israel and the Israeli military launched air strikes at targets throughout the Strip.

Within hours, the media fanfare began. Israeli news outlets began glorifying the interception of missiles by repeatedly showing images of an Iron Dome [anti-missile system] battery, often with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defence Minister Ehud Barak standing in front of the defence system. Reporters continuously emphasized the Iron Dome's high rate of success in intercepting the short-range rockets launched from Gaza towards Israel. One columnist characterized it as a "system that provides the goods, authentic Israeli brilliance, true pride", while another columnist stated that this "weekend Israel took its hat off [to salute] Iron Dome".

Initially, the government and security establishment claimed that "Al-Qaisi was assassinated in order to prevent an attack that was in the final stages of preparation". Two days after Israel carried out the extra-judicial execution, however, the claim that Al-Qaisi presented an imminent danger dissipated.

On 11 March Ofer Shelah reported that
even from the statements made yesterday by the minister of defence one got the sense that the assassination was not about direct prevention: Barak clearly stated that it is not totally clear what was being planned, from where, and whether the attack had been foiled. From this, it can be assumed that the attack was more about deterrence.

”Planned escalation”

Obama Takes Control of ALL of the US in Prep For WWIII (done late on a Friday afternoon, of course!)

Sec. 103. General Functions. Executive departments and agencies (agencies) responsible for plans and programs relating to national defense (as defined in section 801(j) of this order), or for resources and services needed to support such plans and programs, shall:
(a) identify requirements for the full spectrum of emergencies, including essential military and civilian demand;
(b) assess on an ongoing basis the capability of the domestic industrial and technological base to satisfy requirements in peacetime and times of national emergency, specifically evaluating the availability of the most critical resource and production sources, including subcontractors and suppliers, materials, skilled labor, and professional and technical personnel;
As dry and obfuscated as this is, you probably need to read it all the way through. Much of this is a rehash of claims to authorities made by previous Presidents under a series of Executive Orders collectively called the FEMO E.O.s.
So, has the President taken over the country? Technically, no. What this order states is that the President will be prepared to take over the nation in the event of a National Emergency, but again, this is not a new concept as it already occurs in prior E.O.s.
Part II assigns direct control over the nation's assets to various cabinet positions under that national emergency, but again this is merely a clarification of earlier power-grabs.
So, why now, and for what reason?
Although couched in terms of National Defense, I take special note of Part III, which sets forth several fiscal authorities not previously mentioned in the earlier Presidential E.O.s. The authorities set forth include direct purchase by the government of assets, loans and loan guarantees, subsidy payments, and so forth. These are normally authorities which would originate in legislation in the House, as they involve spending. The end result of this E.O. is that Obama is usurping the spending authority of the U.S. House of Representatives. So, while presented as a proactive plan to deal with the coming invasion of Iran, Part III suggests that the real purpose of this E.O. is to prepare for the coming collapse of Greece and the E.U. by transferring spending authority to the White House ahead of the collapse of the dollar.

Iran Attack Spirals Out Of Control, 100s Of US Soldiers Die In Pentagon's War Game

An attack on Iranian nuclear sites quickly spirals out of control, leaving hundreds of US soldiers dead and will result in a large regional war…

(RT) - An Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear sites may quickly spiral out of control and result in a large regional war, a Pentagon war game predicts. American casualties would be counted in hundreds at least.
The two-week game held by Central Command called Internal Look played on a scenario in which Israel carried out an air strike on Iranian facilities.
In retaliation Iran strikes both the Jewish state and the American forces in the region. Game results were classified, but according to leaked details Iran managed to sink at least one American warship in the Persian Gulf, killing 200 crew, reports The New York Times. Separate strikes by Israel and the US managed to delay Iran’s nuclear program by just three years.
The simulated conflict escalated into a wider regional war, demonstrating that a possible attack on Iran would likely have uncontrollable consequences. The result has allegedly raised concern among US military and civilian officials who are skeptical of Israel’s ability to deal a serious blow to Iran’s nuclear facilities.
US officials stressed that the exercise was not a rehearsal for American military action. It was rather aimed at testing internal coordination between the Pentagon and various staff in the Gulf region. The simulation also assumed a single scenario, and results of a real conflict may differ, the military said.
The exercise has been held since the Cold War era, when US troops drilled a Soviet offensive in the Middle East. Internal Look was also used to test America’s readiness for the coming invasion of Iraq.

Iraq approves Hormuz oil exports contingency plan

Iraq has approved a plan to expand its oil export routes by adding capacity from its northern fields and building a pipeline to ship oil from southern fields to Ceyhan in Turkey, a government spokesman said.
The contingency plan was set by the government's energy and economic committee to deal with any potential crisis should Iran close the Strait of Hormuz, which would halt about 80 percent of Iraq's oil exports.

Iran presses ahead with dollar attack

Iran is set to begin selling oil in currencies other than the dollar tomorrow. Combine this info with the fact that there are now 4 NATO aircraft carriers sitting on Iran's doorstep, and this week's Illuminati holy day of March 21st (Vernal Equinox), and the Greek CDS payments which are scheduled to be made after today's Greek debt auction, and the situation could not look much more bleak.

Some 120,000 tonnes of hard red winter wheat grown in the Plains is on its way to the Islamic Republic, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The sale of another 60,000 tonnes has been finalized, according to trade sources, and Iran may ultimately buy some 400,000 tonnes of U.S. wheat this year.

A reminder: Today, 3/20/12, is the day that Iran stops accepting the dollar for its oil and gas...

Iran presses ahead with dollar attack

Last week, the Tehran Times noted that the Iranian oil bourse will start trading oil in currencies other than the dollar from March 20. This long-planned move is part of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s vision of economic war with the west.

...and Iraq and Libya were invaded when they did the same.

WW3: The Bankers War And The Next False Flag

The global banking cartel couldn’t find a way to stop their house of cards from collapsing in Europe so they are now going to invade Iran for profits and oil.

When you see all these bankers quitting all of these very high paying jobs that tells you that the fertilizer is about to hit the ventilation system on warp drive and that is the reason for this rush for war. They couldn’t find a way to stop Europe from collapsing so now they are just going to blow up the middle east as a cover story.

Israeli defense minister says Israel and US disagree on timetable for effective Iran action

Israel and the U.S. disagree on what would be a realistic timetable for stopping Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, Israel’s defense minister said Thursday, but he stopped short of threatening unilateral Israeli action.
Ehud Barak reiterated concerns that Iran is trying to make its suspected nuclear weapons program immune from attack before taking a decision on assembling atomic bombs, and said Israel “cannot afford” to wait in such a situation.
This appears to be yet another step in "grooming" the American public toward a US/Israeli strike against Iran. And right now, unfortunately, it appears to be a matter of "when", and not "if"

US navy to position three aircraft carriers near Iran

Iran will make absolutely no concessions on its nuclear programme, a key lawmaker declared on Sunday amid high geopolitical tensions and ahead of mooted talks with world powers.
“The parliament will never allow the government to go back even one step in its nuclear policy,” Aladin Borujerdi, the head of Iran’s parliamentary foreign policy commission, told the official IRNA news agency.
Iran’s recent announcements that is stepping up uranium enrichment and made its own 20-percent enriched nuclear fuel showed the country “totally masters nuclear science,” he said. “If the P5+1 countries don’t accept the reality of Iran’s nuclear abilities, they will suffer from that,” Borujerdi was quoted as saying.
IF the talks move forward (and this is a big "if", because Israel is putting forward a great deal of pressure to prevent them from happening at all), look for the talks to deadlock again as a prelude to an all-out US/Israeli attack against Iran.

US Army Chief Meets with Gantz after Warning Iran

U.S. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Martin Dempsey met with IDF Chief of Staff Benny. Gantz Monday after having warned Iran it will suffer if it “misjudges” America’s intentions.
Details of their conversation were not released. but it is widely assumed that Iran headed the agenda.

REPORT: Iran Tried To Bomb An Israeli Ship As It Passed Through The Suez Canal

This is CLASSIC Bovine Excretement!
Much like Iran did late last year when it allegedly recruited Manssor Arbabsiar to perform a terrorist act in the U.S., Tehran has been caught plotting an attack with three Egyptian citizens along the Suez Canal.

Report: Iran Targeting Israeli Ships

Iranian terrorists planned to attack Israeli ships in the Suez Canal, the Egyptian daily Al-Ahram reports. Egyptian security forces reportedly thwarted the attack.
Translation: Mossad assets planned to hit Israeli vessels in the Suez Canal, and will most likely try again to create the "justification" for an Israeli strike against Iran.
And PLEASE, whatever you may think of Iranian leadership, one thing they are not is DUMB!!
Why in Heaven's name would they do something so foolish as to hand Israel an excuse to start a military campaign against it?!?
The short answer is, they wouldn't!!

CNN Media Propaganda: "Iran Has A Large Terrorist Trained Force Inside The U.S. Right Now!"

March 21, 2012 CNN

Iran 'carried out surveillance of New York City'

A senior New York police official disclosed that at least 13 suspects with ties to the Iranian government had been questioned by authorities in the last seven years after conducting surveillance of possible attack sites.
Mitchell Silber, the New York Police Department's director of intelligence analysis, said the city's large Jewish population and international significance as a terror target made it ripe for a strike by either Iran or Hizbollah, the Lebanon-based militant group it sometimes uses as a proxy.

Intel: Iran Is Not a Nuclear Threat

"Tehran does not have a bomb, has not decided to build one, and is probably years away from having a deliverable nuclear warhead," states a Reuters special report released today. The report, citing breaking intelligence from current and former US officials, outlines the less than dramatic realities of Iran's nuclear program, running counter to many US and Israeli claims that Iran has imminent nuclear weapon capabilities. Such had been the desired justification for a joint attack on Iran.

Israel to strike Iran in three months?

As Washington and Tel-Aviv continue to debate the possibility of a preventive attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities, there are some indications that Israel may strike in as soon as three months.
­Defense minister, Ehud Barak, says that if Israel plans to attack Iran it should act quickly, DEBKA-NET-Weekly’s sources say. Barak spoke of a three-month deadline for Iran to give up its nuclear ambitions.
It is interesting to note that a 90 day deadline (seeing as we are almost at the end of March) dovetails very conveniently into the time frame (end of June) when full US sanctions are set to take effect against Iran.

US accuses Iran of shipping arms to Syria

The US and Britain have accused Iran of supplying weapons to Syria at a United Nations meeting. Meanwhile Russia has warned against turning up the heat on Tehran.
­During a Wednesday briefing at the UN Security Council in New York, American, British and French diplomats expressed their concern at reports that Iran had violated UN sanctions by supplying arms to the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
"We are alarmed that the majority of the violations involved illicit transfers of arms and related material from Iran to Syria, where the Assad regime is using them to violently repress the Syrian people," the US deputy ambassador to the UN, Rosemary DiCarlo, told the council, as quoted by Reuters.
OK, US Deputy Ambassador DiCarlo: where is your proof?!?
And as you well know, the current, honest answer to that is, you don't have any!

Iran Now Says It Will Not Block The Strait Of Hormuz

After threats by Iran that it could shut the most important oil transit channel in the world, if Western governments stop it from selling crude, Kuwait's emir and other Gulf leaders have sought assurances that Tehran will not follow through with the threats.
"(We) have contacted officials in Iran to ensure that no action is taken to close the Strait of Hormuz," according an English version of his remarks to Japanese press distributed by Kuwait state news agency KUNA. "We have received assurances from Iran that it will not take this step," the emir said during a visit to Japan, one of the Gulf oil exporter's biggest customers."
So, after these assurances have been given, I wouldn't bet against a false flag attack in the Gulf of Hormuz, to be blamed on Iran, as a justification to get the war going.
The US and Israeli governments are both having the devil's own time "selling" this war as a necessity to either country's citizens, so a false flag is the only thing those who favor such a war are left to go with.

SLIPPING INTO CHAOS: After Libya, NATO Intervention Threatens To Destabilize Entire Region

Libya seems to be on the verge of disintegration one year after the military intervention by the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO). In the first week of March, leaders from its oil-rich eastern region, which includes Benghazi, the focal point of the Western-backed rebellion that ousted Muammar Qaddafi, announced their intention to seek “semi-autonomy” from the central government. The meeting in Benghazi, where the decision was taken, was attended by major political leaders, military commanders and tribal leaders from the region. The new “semi-autonomous” region, Cyrenaica, will extend from the central coastal city of Sirte, Qaddafi's hometown, to the country's border with Egypt. According to energy experts, the area holds around two-thirds of the country's oil reserves.
Apparently, NATO's new motto should be "NATO: providing military destruction, torture, and chaos, to make sure other countries' natural resources wind up serving Western interests!"

US deploys 12,000 troops in Libya

The United States has sent some 12,000 soldiers to Libya, in the first phase of deployments to the oil-rich North African nation.
"So here is the deal; you give us all your oil and all your gold, and we will give you a private central bank and a debt-based currency just like we have here in the United States! Won't it be great?" -- Official White Horse Souse

As warmongers plot to destroy Syria, Syrians face only one choice

Tony Cartalucci, Contributing Writer
Activist Post
Corporate-funded think-tank and purveyor of US foreign policy, the Brookings Institution, had in 2009 literally blueprinted the strategy with which the West would slowly strangle and topple the government of Iran. Throughout the pages of their report, "Which Path to Persia?" everything from sanctions, to purposefully provoking war with Iran, to stoking US-backed uprisings, to funding, training, and arming US State Department-listed terror organizations was plotted before being promptly executed...

A Year Later, Human Rights Watch Admits Syrian Rebels Guilty of Atrocities

Kidnapping, Torture, and Murder of Civilians by Syrian Opposition Confirmed.
Tony Cartalucci, Contributing Writer
Activist Post
Human Rights Watch (HRW), just as it did in Libya, waited until the very last possible moment to admit what the alternative media had been reporting for over a year -- that Syria's rebels are craven, torturing, kidnapping, murdering terrorists committing widespread and systematic atrocities not only against security forces, but against anyone suspected of supporting the Syrian government, as well as randomly targeted civilians.

Image: Human Rights Watch knew all along that Syria's opposition was armed and conducting a systematic campaign of kidnapping, torture, and mass murder, but waited until the last possible moment to acknowledge it. As we can see, HRW is funded by George Soros' Open Society as well as a myriad of corporate-funded foundations all disingenuously leveraging the cause of human rights to carry out their agenda of achieving global corporate-financial hegemony. (click on image to enlarge)

The HRW report titled, "
Syria: Armed Opposition Groups Committing Abuses," is broken into three parts, kidnapping, torture, and executions. And while the report attempts to focus mainly on atrocities carried out against security forces and government supporters, the mention of civilian victims is made as well. Under the title "Kidnappings," it is stated:
Abuses include kidnapping, detention, and torture of security force members, government supporters, and people identified as members of pro-government militias, called shabeeha. Human Rights Watch has also received reports of executions by armed opposition groups of security force members and civilians.
Human Rights Watch also expressed concern about FSA [Free Syrian Army] kidnappings of Iranian nationals, some of whom the group has confirmed are civilians."
Under "Executions," HRW's report describes the Syrian opposition's practice of rounding up suspects and killing them without trial, generally on the grounds of confessions coerced through torture. Other executions are simply carried out as reprisals with no apparent offense beyond suspected affiliations being cited.

The report indicates that Syria's opposition, like the NATO-backed rebels in Libya, are lawless, unprincipled, sectarian, extremists. They are far from "democracy activists" or "unarmed, helpless civilians," and very far from being "victims" of a disproportionate use of force. From the very beginning of Syria's unrest, the alternative media has covered what was systematic violence used by the opposition,
from vandalism and arson, to sniper and bomb attacks and now full-blown armed insurrection. It is clear now, as even the Wall Street-London combine must admit, Syria's opposition has been countered by Syrian security forces out of the necessity to restore order, not to silence legitimate political dissent.

News of the HRW report has been muted, with most corporate-media outlets electing to downplay, spin, or obfuscate the true implications of the war crimes being carried out by Syria's opposition. The implications are that NATO, led by the US, UK, France, and Turkey, as well as their proxy "Arab League," have been backing torturers, kidnappers, and mass murderers. This should come as no surprise, as it is confirmed members of Libya's Al Qaeda affiliate, the NATO-backed Libyan Islamic Fighting Group,
are now literally leading the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA).

With the Syrian opposition turning to car bombs and targeting populated city centers claiming scores of civilian lives, it is now clear that the West is also backing a terrorist campaign as well. Syria's government could not in good conscience withdraw troops from areas the terrorist opposition is operating in, especially now that it is confirmed this opposition is kidnapping, torturing and arbitrarily killing civilians.

To an international community that has defended, even facilitated such thuggery for now over a year, they are the least qualified to propose any further meddling or "solution" to the ongoing unrest. This includes
Kofi Annan's dubious "peace" mission which has been recently exposed as a ploy to rehabilitate Western-back militants for a second round of violence.

Russia Calls For Syrian Ceasefire As Reports Spread That Their Troops Are In The Country

ABC: Russian Marines And Warships Arrive In Syria

The media is now reporting that naval ships and elite “anti-terrorism” marines from Russia have arrived in Syria ahead of possible US military intervention.
The headline “Russian Anti-Terror Troops Arrive in Syria” is being blasted by ABC news.

ABC Reports Russian Troops Have Arrived In Syria, Russia Denies

Furthermore, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense, the crew of Iman consists solely of "civilian personnel, which is being guarded." That may or may not be the case, but has not stopped ABC from blasting, minutes ago, a headline that "Russian anti-terror troops arrive in Syria" a development that a "United Nations Security Council source told ABC News was "a bomb" certain to have serious repercussions."

Russian Anti-Terror Troops Arrive in Syria

A Russian military unit has arrived in Syria, according to Russian news reports, a development that a United Nations Security Council source told ABC News was "a bomb" certain to have serious repercussions.
Russia, one of President Bashar al-Assad's strongest allies despite international condemnation of the government's violent crackdown on the country's uprising, has repeatedly blocked the United Nations Security Council's attempts to halt the violence, accusing the U.S. and its allies of trying to start another war.

'Fairytales!' No Russian warships, anti-terror squads in Syria

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has rejected reports claiming that Russian warships visited Syrian ports.
Lavrov said that such "fairytales" are aimed at disrupting the mission of UN-Arab League Special Envoy Kofi Annan. He also added that a Russian tanker had recently entered Tartus, Syria’s port city on the Mediterranean Sea, as part of an international anti-piracy mission.
