How Many Dead “Terrorists” is the US Budget Worth?

April 16, 2017

Recently the Trump administration ordered (or allowed) the U.S. military now headed by the certifiable loon Mattis to drop their most powerful non-nuclear bomb, the MOAB, on some mountain in occupied Afghanistan.

The bomb caused a minor earthquake and allegedly succeeded in killing 34 IS “terrorists”.

Aside from the moral of labeling people terrorists and killing them indiscriminately by some dumb, if powerful, bomb, here is what else transpires.

A bomb costing US$ 314 million kills 34 IS “terrorists” which makes it US$ 8.7 million per “terrorist” which means the 2017 US budget is good for killing… 6,880 “terrorists”!

I trust you will find there’s many more.

Also, China has nothing to worry about, not now, not ever.

Is US or UK Behind False-Flag Sarin Attack in Syria?

April 9, 2017

The timing is suspicious.

No motive can be ascribed to President Assad.

The only ones that are benefiting are anti-Assads and hard-core Western terrorism-inciting and funding governments like those of the US and UK in particular.

It has never been shown conclusively that Assad’s forces ever committed any chemical attack in Syria.

In fact, in 2013 when the last red-line Sarin attack took place, Carla Del Ponte, a UN official, said on record that victims’ accounts rather pointed to the rebels’ involvement.

So is the US or the UK orchestrated the appalling gas attack?

I think, the impulse definitely came from somewhere in the bowels of the Trump administration but it was likely the British government that physically committed the heinous act in Idlib Province, Syria, through its agents there by launching a chemical Sarin gas attack as a result of which 100 people, including 21 children, died.

The attack has all the hallmarks of a US-ordered and British-executed atrocity.

We have seen it before, including during this ongoing tragic civil war in Syria which is only benefiting those who want to put down and bleed the entire Arab world (aka the US and Britain, also some in the EU).

My analysis of limited and heavily distorted information as well MSM decoding implicates the British government, its secret services and local agents, including so called White Helmets and British sponsored rebels and other British agents, in this attack.

The attack follows the similar pattern of previous false-flag chemical attacks in Syria apparently carried out by British government agents where they deployed chemical agents on a number of occasions targeting own civilians in rebel-controlled territories and then quickly publicized said attacks using fake social media accounts, puppet paid bloggers and twitter users on the ground and around the world and bogus groups like the London-based so-called “Syrian Observatory” which was set up and is curated by MI6.

However Britain could be double-dealing here and this attack also appears to be the latest step in the British government’s month-long campaign to undermine President Trump personally (probably in cahoots with some forces in the Trump administration itself and larger political establishment in Washington, D.C., aka the “swamp”) by making it impossible for him to carry out his pre-election promises which included a possible deal with Assad.

While making out as if taking and obeying orders from the US, the British government secretly also wants to involve the United States in another lengthy and preferably bloody war to shift attention from itself hoping that terrorists will then target US rather than British interests.

HST on America, Not the First Time

January 29, 2017

Assorted self-described liberals are up in arms against President Trump’s recent executive order banning refugees and nationals of certain countries.

But really this is nothing new and, what’s more, something very insignificant compared to what some of his predecessors were able to get away with.

To illustrate, here is a quote from Kingdom of Fear by Hunter S. Thompson.

But this is not the first time civil liberties have been eroded in the face of national crises. Abraham Lincoln suspended the Great Writ of Habeas Corpus, Woodrow Wilson had his Palmer raids and Franklin Roosevelt interred Asian American citizen for no reason, other than their national origin.

Obama’s True Legacy

January 11, 2017

Obama is all but gone (from the White House) and Obamism is in its violent death throes both domestically and internationally.

Eulogies and crocodile tears aside, let’s look at President Obama’s true legacy focusing on a few most salient points.

Awarded Nobel Peace Prize in advance, even before he acceded to the White House, Obama has been an unmitigated failure in upholding international peace.

While extricating America from the Iraq quagmire as he promised, he continued many wars and conflicts permanently waged by the US military and “intelligence” operatives all other the globe, provoked, fanned and encouraged many new wars and conflicts – so much so that international peace now looks more elusive and unattainable than it ever was before under President Bush (and that’s saying plenty).

Also, he embraced the new technology of distant indiscriminate killing using military aerial vehicles (drones) whereby tens of thousands of people died at the hands of US drone operators, with a substantial majority being innocent civilians, including many women and children. At one point, dozens of women and children were killed every single day in places like Afghanistan, Pakistan, North Africa and later Syria.

Overall, during his tenure Obama is thought to have been responsible for over 300,000 people killed, a majority of whom were Muslim.

While it represents a drop in numbers of killed people compared to President Bush, it still means that Obama not only became the most prolific drone killer in the world but also officially became the most murderous Nobel Peace Prize winner ever after the fact.

I am confident no other Nobel Peace Prize winner has ever killed as many people as Obama did.

Obama’s international military campaigns and adventures, such as Afghanistan, Libya, North Africa, Syria, also resulted in him becoming the world’s most murderous black man surpassing his idol African dictator Idi Amin.

During his second term, as American power became to wane and Obama got more and more irrelevant on the world stage, he developed by way of overcompensation the extreme supremacist nationalist (Nazi) ideology of US exclusiveness and its unique rights to preside over the world and the eternal nature of its dominance, sometimes referred to as Obamism, which ideology he expounded in several well publicized speeches.

As regards, domestic matters, here Obama was more of a talker than a doer.

While articulating good intentions inside the country, ultimately all his policies and innovations – ones that he actually got round to implement as promised — are now doomed under the incoming Trump administration.

Finally, Obama’s inability to hand over the reins of power to his designated successor – Hillary Clinton – thereby ensuring the certain reversal of his domestic policies and “achievements” is perhaps the most emblematic of Obama the failure.

U.S. Dept of State, CIA Behind Turkey Coup

July 18, 2016

It’s inconceivable that the CIA, America’s spy and subversion agency, was not involved in, or did not have prior knowledge of, the July 2016 failed coup attempt in Turkey.

Let’s engage in analysis of limited information and MSM decoding now, shall we?

Consider.

All previous coup attempts in Turkey, of which there were at least half a dozen, took place with the heavy involvement and/or prior knowledge of the CIA, and the US subversion agency has always had strong contacts with the Turkish military. Also coup plotters would not have dared to launch military action without informing the CIA or the US military intelligence structures and getting the “go-ahead” from them. After all, Turkey is a country that has scores of US nukes at an airbase within its territory.

In the early hours of the coup when it very much looked like it was succeeding, Secretary of State Kerry delivered a cryptic message, in which he said only that “he hoped for stability and continuity in Turkey”. That’s it. Yes, that is literally all that was said. (He also said it in Moscow of all places). It is hard not to take it as acceptance, if not outright encouragement, of the coup and an attempt to build early trust with Turkey’s would-be military leaders. As all previous military coups in Turkey were very much successful, he had no reason to think at that stage that the one in progress would turn out otherwise.

Only when it became apparent that the coup was actually failing was Prez Obama couched to say something in terms of needing to support the elected Erdogan government which was necessary to backtrack or even to cover the tracks.

Pro-Erdogan Turkish officials strongly suspect that all rebel helicopters and/or planes were refueling at the jointly Turkey and American run base at Incirlik.

Fethullah Gulen, an Islamic cleric, ostensibly accused by Erdogan of running a “parallel structure” and masterminding the coup, is in the United States and it is hard to imagine him being able to operate in the post-2001 “Islamic-terror-fighting” America without permission and/or approval from the United State’s security apparatus.

It is also possible that President Erdogan meant much more than Mr. Fethullar Gulen himself when he said that “this country [Turkey] would not be run from Pennsylvania”. CIA has many operational facilities in the State of Pennsylvania.

There is also a distinct lack of Western joy, to say the least, at President Erdogan’s victory over the coup and the decisive manner of it.

Also, over the past 50 years, the US via its CIA and other structures was involved in over 60 coup attempts. In fact, in the past 50 years there hasn’t been a single coup or coup attempt that the US was NOT involved in.

This pretty much seals it.

Henry Miller on America

December 27, 2015

Here is another installment in my Classics on America series, courtesy of influential author Henry Miller coming from his book Tropic of Capricorn.

The one thing they did not want to hear about was that life is indestructible. Was not their precious new world reared on the destruction of the innocent, on rape and plunder and torture and devastation? Both continents had been violated; both continents had been stripped and plundered of all that was precious — in things. No greater humiliation, it seems to me, was meted out to any man than to Montezuma; no race was ever more ruthlessly wiped out than the American Indian; no land was ever raped in the foul and bloody way that California was raped by the gold-diggers. I blush to think of our origins — our hands are steeped in blood and crime. And there is no let-up to the slaughter and the pillage, as I discovered at first hand traveling throughout the length and breadth of the land. Down to the closest friend every man is a potential murderer.

 

Bison Skull Mountain

December 3, 2015

The famous picture from 1870 showing a huge pile of bison (buffalo) skulls.

bison

Massive bison herds once numbered tens of millions of animals across North America but the Bison/Buffalo was hunted to near extinction in the late 19th century.

The American settler military was heavily involved in bison slaughter.

The settlers’ principal motive was that they wanted to weaken the North American Indian population by removing their main food source and to pressure them onto the reservations during times of conflict.

So, a double whammy of genocides… targeting both the buffalo and the North American Native.

The former now exists only in limited numbers in some sickly herds, while the erstwhile 40+ Native North American nations are also gone for ever, the entire indigenous civilization destroyed and supplanted.

Latest US War Crime in Kunduz, Afghanistan

October 10, 2015

The US’ latest major war crime happened a week ago when an MSF hospital in Kunduz was bombed, with 22 doctors and staff confirmed killed and over 30 still unaccounted for, presumed killed as well.

The bombing was almost certainly intentional and intended as a message to Taliban after they reportedly managed to shoot down earlier in the week a US C-130 at Jalalabad Airbase with a loss of 12 US personnel and civilians.

In this instance the US forces involved clearly acted in violation of international law as under the laws of war all parties to armed conflicts are required to distinguish at all times between combatants and civilians and direct attacks only at combatants. Indiscriminate attacks are prohibited. All parties must take all feasible precautions to avoid, and minimize, loss of civilian life and injury to civilians

In fact, last week’s Kunduz hospital airstrike is not the only crime the US-led Nato forces willfully perpetrated in Kunduz in their 14-year occupation of Afghanistan.

In an earlier incident, in 2009, they killed over 90 civilians who were burned alive after Nato planes attacked a fleet of fuel trucks.
