Europe Beware! – World War III Could Destroy Europe for the Third Time in a Century

Washington is determined to go to war with Russia. Its military industrial complex demands it. Its financial system – FED, Wall Street demand it. War is a debt machine. War brings insane amounts of profit. The European vassals go along with it. It is part of the PNAC (Plan for a New American Century) to take over the world.

After Russia, China would follow. That’s the plan. China is being encircled as we speak. Already 50% of the US navy fleet is stationed in the Pacific, from Japan to the Philippines to Australia. By 2016, Obama has promised, the navy war contingent in the Pacific will increase to two thirds.

In mid-2014, China had surpassed the US in economic power. China must be annihilated in any way possible. Never mind that Russia and China have recently concluded a pact, a close financial and military alliance – which to defeat will be next to impossible.

Unless – and here is the crux of the matter – unless Washington, a dying beast, pouncing wildly its tentacles all around the globe, initiates an all-out nuclear war, destroying the planet, including itself – but foremost Europe. After all, the US of A is far away. Protected by two Oceans. Starting wars from foreign bases is much safer.

Of NATO’s 28 member countries, 26 are in Europe, of which 12 – almost half – in Eastern Europe, countries that used to be part of or ‘dependencies’ of the former Soviet Union. And this happened despite Washington’s promise at the time of the fall of the Berlin Wall, not to expand NATO eastward. A lie and sheer affront on Russia.

This provocation is exacerbated today by the Pentagon’s further arming the NATO bases of Poland and Latvia, and by NATO’s considering Ukraine’s urgent call – or rather, the call of the Washington installed Kiev Nazi thugs – for NATO protection and to become a NATO member as soon as possible. Poroshenko declared that his government (sic) will do whatever it takes to implement the neoliberal NATO reform conditions, including give up the status of non-alignment (neutrality) under which it was created at the dissolution of the Soviet Union. “Neoliberal reforms” – akin to the IMF sledgehammer, meaning further privatizing and stealing Ukraine’s social safety system – reduced salaries, pensions, health and education benefits. A disaster for the people; spiraling into outright misery.

Imagine, NATO at Moscow’s doorstep. Would the Kremlin just bow and accept it? – Hardly. With NATO bases in 26 European countries – Guess – who would be the logical center of the next theatre of war?

Do the Obama stooges not realize this? – Do the vassals have no brains? Or would the coward leaders (sic) escape to Florida, while their people are smoldering to dust? – Wake up, Europe! Wake up! – People of Europe, take back your countries from the neoliberal puppets, from your spine and brainless coward leaders.

In fact, the West led by the naked emperor is waging war against Russia on several fronts: the bloody Ukraine coup and Maidan massacre in February 2014; arming and equipping the Kiev war criminals that has led to at least 5,000 savagely killed Donbass inhabitants most of whom civilians, women and children, and more than a million homeless refugees into Russia;  relentless anti-Russia, anti-Putin propaganda, by the Zionist-Anglo-Saxon controlled MSM; CIA instigated false flag operations, like the downing by Kiev’s air force of Malaysian Air MH17, killing 298 people; a salvo of countless economic sanctions which, albeit, hurt Europe more than Russia; and a currency war with an engineered fall of the ruble, combined with an ‘engineered’ drop of oil prices by conspiring with the Saudi clowns for hydrocarbon overproduction, a stab not only at Russia, but also at the economies of others who refuse to bend to Washington’s dictum, like Iran and Venezuela.

In addition, there is the indirect attack front – the Middle East – creating and arming the IS caliphate to destabilize Syria; and in an act of make-believe attacking IS troops in disguise of bombing Syria – a close ally of Russia – for ‘regime change’, an objective that has been on the State Department’s agenda for the last ten years. Iran, another ally of Russia and China, may be next. So it has been inscribed in the PNAC. The tail of the Zionist poodle that wags the empire (and largely authored the PNAC) knows no mercy.

Russia is taking it in with calm. Vladimir Putin is a chess player par excellence, out-maneuvering the west at every move. In addition to Russia’s large foreign exchange reserves – estimated at close to half a trillion dollars equivalent – Ms. Elvira Nabiullina, President of Russia’s Central Bank, entered into a currency swap agreement with China, pitting their combined economies, constituting about 27% of the world’s GDP (US$85 trillion, 2014 est.) against the western economic aggressions.

A few days ago Russia’s Central Bank started buying back cheap, down-graded rubles with its excess foreign reserves. The Russian currency gained 10% alone on 17 December, last day of trading before the weekend. With the fall of the ruble, foreign shareholders of Russian corporations, especially in Europe and the US, were afraid of losing out under a ruble collapse. They shed their shares – which Russia quickly bought and repatriated, thereby not only returning foreign holdings of Russian stock into Russian coffers, but also cashing in on the dividends of these stocks. According to some accounts (Spiegel Online), with this move alone Russia earned some 20 billion dollars.

It looks like the economic and propaganda war is progressively being won by Russia. On the political western front things are crumbling too. Hungary’s government, a member of the EU and of NATO, has just declared an alliance with Russia against Washington.  Turkey, once a contender to enter the EU, is disgusted with Europe and is instead aiming at membership in the SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization). Turkey is a strategic key NATO member. Will others follow suit, as more and more are seeing the emperor’s nakedness and horrendous malignancy?

The veils are falling. Gradually. So-called allies of the empire are wary since long. Afraid of ‘sanctions’ or worse, of a possible take-over by the merciless killing machine, they have nodded and played along. So far. But, as they see the implosion of the beast, they increasingly dare jumping ship.

Europe – be aware! The center of the next war might again be Europe. A dying beast knows no mercy. It rather destroys the universe and itself than leaving survivors behind. – Unless its poisonous and killing tentacles can be paralyzed – terminally, by economic isolation; by destruction of its currency, the dollar; by making this worthless money irrelevant and obsolete. For good.

Europe – it’s not too late! Your economic future is in your autonomy; in a coalition of European sovereign nations with the east – an alliance with the promising new economic Silk Road. Mr. Xi Jinping’s offer to Madame Merkel this past spring is still open. Neoliberal thinking is short-term thinking. Instant profit for instant debt.

Europe, take the lead. Break loose from the corrupt debt-ridden dollar casino scheme. A new ruble-yuan based monetary system is in the making. The basket may soon expand by other BRICS currencies – and, who knows, maybe the Euro? – Our children, grandchildren and their children deserve a future of peace and harmony and wellbeing.

How “We the People” … elect “War Mongers”.

Obama’s Permanent War Agenda

He continues a longstanding tradition. America’s agenda is permanent war.

Lew Rockwell calls it “The Forever War.” Law Professor Marjorie Cohn says it “perpetual war.”

So did Gore Vidal in his 2002 book titled “Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace,” saying:

“(O)ur for more than half a century have made sure that we are never to be told the truth about anything that our government has done to other people, not to mention our own.”

In his same year book titled “Dreaming War,” he compared GW Bush’s imperial ambitions to WW II and the 1947 Truman Doctrine’s pledge:

“To support free peoples who are resisting attempted subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressures.”

Truman initiated America’s National Security State strategy. It included establishing NATO in 1949. For offense, not defense.

Containing Russia was prioritized . NSC 4 outlined “US Objectives with Respect to the USSR to Counter Soviet Threats to US Security.”

NSC 7 followed. It covered “The Position of the United States With Respect to Soviet Dominated World Communism.”

Saying: “(A) defensive policy cannot be considered an effective means of checking the momentum of Soviet expansion.”

Defeating communism was considered “vital to the security of the United States.” Washington should organize and lead a “counter-offensive” aimed at undermining Soviet strength.

“(D)evelop(ing), and at the appropriate time carry(ing) out, a coordinated (anti-Soviet) program…”

In April 1950, NSC-68 called Russia an enemy “unlike previous aspirants to hegemony…”

Saying it was “animated by a new fanatic faith, antithetical to our own (wishing to) impose its absolute authority over the rest of the world.”

Sounds like how Obama characterizes ISIS/ISIL/the Islamic State (IS) today.

“(U)nique in (its) brutality,” he says. “Posing a threat to the people of…the broader Middle East – including American citizens, personnel and facilities.”

“If left unchecked, these terrorists could pose a growing threat beyond that region, including to the United States.”

No matter that IS is a US creation. US special forces and CIA operatives train its fighters in Jordan, Turkey and Georgia.

They’re sent to Syria to fight Assad. Part of America’s regime change strategy. Used against Gaddafi.

US allies and enemies at the same time. Big Lies substitute for truth and full disclosure. MSM scoundrels regurgitate them ad nauseam.

In his 1953 book “Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace: A Critical Examination of the Foreign Policy of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and It’s Aftermath,” historian Harry Elmer Barnes said:

“If trends continue as they have during the last fifteen years, we shall soon reach this point of no return, and can only anticipate interminable wars, disguised as noble gestures for peace.”

“Such an era could only culminate in a third world war.” He explained America’s needless involvement in two world wars.

Doing so transformed its pre-1914 dream “into a nightmare of fear, regimentation, destruction, insecurity, inflation, and ultimate insolvency.”

He challenged America’s alleged just cause for entering WW I.  Its foolhardiness for doing so. Disastrous results that followed.

Explained popular WW II fictions. Precipitating German/Austrian injustices. Censored Forrestal Diaries. Showing Roosevelt wanted war in the early 1930s.

His June 1940 “Stab in the Back” address promoted war. He asked

“(w)hat is to become of the country we know?”

“(Y)oung men and young women of America ask…with even greater anxiety than before.”

“They ask, not only what the future holds for this Republic, but what the future holds for all peoples and all nations that have been living under democratic forms of Government-under the free institutions of a free people.”

“It’s an obvious delusion that we of the United States can safely permit the United States to become a lone island, a lone island in a world dominated by the philosophy of force.”

Europe was at war. Roosevelt rallied Americans to support US involvement. Supplied Britain with vast amounts of weapons and munitions.

In September 1940, America’s Selective Training and Service Act became law. Initiating peacetime conscription for the first time in US history.

In January 1941, Roosevelt advisor Harry Hopkins told Winston Churchill:

“The President is determined that we shall win the war together. Make no mistake about it.”

Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Harold Stark told fleet commanders:

“The question of our entry into the war now seems to be when, and not whether.”

Only a pretext was needed. Months later it came. Roosevelt manipulated things to assure it.

On July 4, he said:

“(S)olemnly (understand) that the United States will never survive as a happy and fertile oasis of liberty surrounded by a cruel desert of dictatorship.”

His July 25 Executive Order froze Japanese assets, saying:

It was “(t)o prevent the use of the financial facilities of the United States in trade between Japan and the United States in ways harmful to national defense and American interests, to prevent the liquidation in the United States of assets obtained by duress or conquest, and to curb subversive activities in the United States.”

From 1933 through late 1941, Roosevelt spurned Japanese peace overtures. They would have protected America’s East Asian interests.

By late November, the die was cast. War Secretary Henry Stimson said it depended on how to maneuver Japan to attack with minimum US casualties.

In the late 1930s, Roosevelt encouraged a Japanese attack.

Against the advice of Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Harold Stark and Pacific Fleet Commander James Richardson, he stationed America’s Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor.

An embargo on Japan assured war. So did arming its enemies. Breaking the Japanese code let Washington track its fleet to Pearl Harbor.

“At a December 5 cabinet meeting, Navy Secretary Frank Knox said: “Well, you know Mr. President, we know where the Japanese fleet is?”

“Yes, I know,” responded Roosevelt. On December 7, 1941 at 7:55AM Hawaii time, Roosevelt got the war he wanted.

In his book titled “The Good War: An Oral History of World War II,” Studs Terkel (1912 – 2008) said the only thing good about it was America’s heartland was spared.

Wars are “lunatic” acts, said Terkel. Resolving nothing. Horrific by any standard.

Turning ordinary people into crazed killers. Destroying any hope for peace. Begetting more war.

Howard Zinn denounced the myth of good wars. They prevent peace. Perpetuate violence. World War II was worst of all.

Modern warfare is indifferent about who dies from 30,000 feet. “You just press a button, you know, and somebody dies,” said Zinn.

“You don’t see faceless victims. You don’t hear children scream. You don’t know about human flesh ripped to pieces. You think you’re the good guys. Kill the bad ones.”

“World War II is not that simple,” said Zinn. “The good guys became the bad guys. War poisons everybody. It corrupts everybody.”

Neither side reflects saintliness. Both sides are villainous. All sides wage dirty war. Without mercy. Slaughtering innocent civilians.

Did WW II stop fascism, asked Zinn? Did it stop racist persecution? End militarism? Restore peace?

When it ended, Zinn got a letter from General George Marshall. It wasn’t a “Dear Howie,” he said.

All US armed forces personnel got the same one. It was “something like this,” said Zinn.

“We’ve won the war. Congratulations for your service. It will be a new world.”

“It wasn’t a new world,” said Zinn. “War after war after war after war” followed. They rage today. The second war to end all wars perpetuated them.

Millions died for nothing. Fascism, despotism and militarism remain. Wars can’t be tolerated “no matter what we’re told,” said Zinn.

So-called good wars don’t exist. They’re worst of all. Civilians suffer most in all wars. Children suffer like adults.

Wars institutionalize violence. Assuring more wars. Continuing without end.

America’s only enemies are ones it invents. Mass slaughter and destruction persist. Planet earth is America’s battleground.

How many more millions will die? How much human misery is enough? How much longer will people tolerate the intolerable?

When will one century of war after another end? When will America’s rage to fight be challenged? When will swords be turned into plowshares?”

In 2003, “economic (military to civilian production) conversion” expert Seymour Melman addressed America’s permanent war economy, saying:

It shapes all aspects of US life. Its horrific toll includes:

  • a de-industrialized nation;
  • government financing and promoting “every kind of war industry and foreign investing by US firms;”
  • doing it at the expense of homeland needs;
  • maintaining the same policy since WW II; and
  • prioritizing war over all else in US society.

The result is thirdworldizing America. It’s a nation of beggars, poverty, homelessness, hunger, unemployment, underemployment, desperation and despair.

Growing millions are “disconnected from society’s mainstream,” said Melman. (They’re) restless and unhappy, frustrated, angry and sad.”

“State capitalism” characterizes America. It’s a government/business partnership.

For wealth, power and privilege. Advancing America’s imperium. For unchallenged US dominance.

Hugely corrupt. Unstable. Lawless. Inhumane. Exploiting suffering millions.

America’s agenda is pursued at the expense of lost industrialization. Crumbling infrastructure. A madness for waging wars without end.

No matter the cost. The toll. The downside. How badly things will end.

What can’t go on forever, won’t. Chalmers Johnson predicted eventual bankruptcy and ruin.

War on freedom persists. Disappearing in plain sight. Full-blown tyranny looms.

Melman said “(f)urther evasion is out of order. We must come to grips with America’s State Capitalism and its Permanent War Economy.”

Re-industrialization is essential “to restore jobs and production competence – industry by industry.”

“Failing that, there is no hope for any constructive exit.” Not for America. Nor its people. Nor others affected globally.

Not any time soon under Obama’s open-ended wars without end. His rage to fight.

Doing so based on Big Lies. Serving monied interests over popular ones.

Spurning rule of law principles. Trashing democratic values. Leading NATO’s killing machine. Its freedom-crushing monster.

Risking nuclear war with Russia. Waging it will be war to end all future ones.

No coming back. No second chances. No life left worth living. Extinguished from planet earth.

Today … is the seed for Tomorrow !

 

 

Free Fall of the Ruble: Who’s Behind it? A Ploy of

 Russia’s Economic Wizards? Whose Chess Game?

 

With thanks to Peter Koenig  and Global Reasearch.

 

The world is still hell-bent for hydrocarbon-based energy. Russia is one of the world’s largest producer of energy. Russia has recently announced that in the future she will no longer trade energy in US dollars, but in rubles and currencies of the trading partners. In fact, this rule will apply to all trading. Russia and China are detaching their economies from that of the western financial system. To confirm this decision, in July 2014  Russia’s Gazprom concluded a 400 billion gas deal with China, and in November this year they signed an additional slightly smaller contract – all to be denominated in rubles and renminbi.

The remaining BRICS – Brazil, India and South Africa – plus the members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) – China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kirgizstan, Uzbekistan and considered for membership since September 2014 are also India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran and Mongolia, with Turkey also waiting in the wings – will also trade in their local currencies, detached from the dollar-based western casino scheme. A host of other nations increasingly weary of the decay of the western financial system which they are locked into are just waiting for a new monetary scheme to emerge. So far their governments may have been afraid of the emperor’s wrath – but gradually they are seeing the light. They are sensing the sham and weakness behind Obama’s boisterous noise. They don’t want to be sucked into the black hole, when the casino goes down the drain.

To punish Russia for Ukraine, Obama is about to sign into law major new sanctions against Russia, following Congress’s unanimous passing of a recent motion to this effect. – That is what the MSM would like you to believe. It is amazing that ten months after the Washington instigated Maidan slaughter and coup where a Washington selected Nazi Government was put in place, the MSM still lies high about the origins of this government and the massacres it is committing in the eastern Ukraine Donbass area.

Congress’s unanimity – what Congress and what unanimity? – Out of 425 lawmakers, only 3 were present for the vote http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article40489.htm. The others may have already taken off for their year-end recess, or simply were ‘ashamed’ or rather afraid to object to the bill. As a matter of fact, of the three who were present to vote, two at first objected. Only after a bit of arm-twisting and what not, they were willing to say yes. This is how the ‘unanimous’ vote came to be, as trumpeted by the MSM – unanimous by three votes! The public at large is duped again into believing what is not.

What new sanctions does this repeatedly propagated bill entail? – It addresses mostly Russian energy companies and the defense industry with regard to sales to Syria, as well more anti-Russia propaganda and ‘democratization’ programs in Ukraine – and Russia; all countries with the objective for regime change.

How do these sanctions affect Russia, especially since all Russian energy sales are no longer dollar denominated? – Sheer propaganda. The naked emperor once more is calling an unsubstantiated bluff. To show his western stooges who is in power. It’s an ever weaker showoff.

Now – as a consequence of declining oil prices and of western ‘sanctions’ – of course, what else? – Russia’s economy is suffering and the ruble is in free fall. Since the beginning of the year it lost about 60%; last week alone 20%. As a result and after serious consideration, says MSM, the Russian Central Bank decided a few days ago to increase the interest of reference from 10.5% to 17% to make the ruble more attractive for foreign investors. It worked only for a few hours. Raising the interbank interest was Putin’s reply to Obama’s bluff – feeding at the same time western illusion about Russia’s decline.

The propaganda drums tell you Russia is helpless because the world has lost the last bit of confidence in President Putin – of course. Regime change is on the agenda. Mr. Putin must be blamed as the culprit, hoping to discredit him with his people. He is leading Russia into a deep recession; the worst since the collapse of the Soviet Union. The mainstream media show you interviews with average mainstreet Russians saying they have lost all their savings, their salaries and pensions are worth nothing anymore and they don’t know how to survive this coming calamity.

In reality, at least 80% of the Russian population stands solidly behind Vladimir Putin. He has brought them universal education, health care and fixed infrastructure that was decaying after the fall of the Soviet Union. President Putin is literally revered as a hero by the vast majority of Russians – including the country’s oligarchy.

In fact, nobody in the western economic system these days is dealing in rubles. In short-sighted connivance with Washington, the treasuries of the western vassals are releasing their ruble reserves – which Russia does not buy, thereby flooding the market. Russia not only has large dollar reserves, plus the ruble is backed by gold, a fact consistently omitted in the MSM. For now, Russia prefers to let the ruble plummet.

Under another ‘arrangement’ by bully Obama, Middle Eastern oil producing puppets like Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States are overproducing and flooding the market with petrol and gas, thereby driving the price down to the ostensible detriment of Russia and Venezuela, both countries where Washington  vies for regime change. A double whammy thinks Washington, buying kudos with the stooges. The sheiks that control their energy output apparently have been promised enough goodies from Washington to bite the bullet and take their own losses.

Russia needs rubles. That’s her currency. That is the currency Russia needs for future trading – detached from the western monetary system.

When Russia deems that her currency has reached rock-bottom, she will buy back cheap rubles in the market with massive amounts of dollars. Russia may then flood the western market – with dollars, euros and other western-allied currencies – and gold.  Let’s not forget, the ruble is backed by gold. By now we know what flooding a market with currencies may do to these currencies – and simultaneously buy back rubles from the West.  A brilliant move to reestablish Russia’s currency in a new emerging monetary system – which Europe would be welcome to join, but willingly, not by Washington style arm-twisting.

Surely, Russia is not interested to cause the sudden destruction of the dollar-linked financial world. She is not interested in a sudden death of the many countries that are potential new trading partners in a new monetary system. Instead, the fall of the western economy of deceit may be planned as a gradual slide, so that countries have time to switch – switch their reserves to rubles, yuans and other BRICS and SCO currencies. This move is on its way. Only ten years ago, dollar denominated securities constituted 90% of reserves worldwide. Today the rate is 60% and declining.

After all, perhaps as Plan B, there is also a pact of monetary alliance between Russia and China. China holds currently about 1.5 trillion dollars and in total more than 3 trillion dollar equivalent in western currencies – and undefined but huge gold reserves. Chinese, BRICS and SCO solidarity with Russia is a solid security for the ruble. Imagine – the first major action of the new BRICS Development Bank with a current capital base of 100 billion dollars would launch a massive ruble rescue operation. No worries, Russia’s economy is on firm course.

The question begs – is this gigantic ‘engineered’ ruble devaluation scheme another precursor to war? A nuclear confrontation or Cold War II? – Precursor to another western, Washington-driven false flag attempting Moscow to fall into a lethal trap? – Not necessarily. Russia is playing a clever chess game, diplomacy at its best. Instead of sabre rattling – Russia is coin rattling. It might lead to a western financial fiasco early in 2015 for the dollar and euro denominated economies. And the winner is…?

Lord … forgive … We the People !!

 

The Anti-Empire Report #135

By William Blum – Published December 19th, 2014

http://williamblum.org/aer/read/1351

 

American Exceptionalism and American Torture

In 1964, the Brazilian military, in a US-designed coup, overthrew a liberal (not more to the left than that) government and proceeded to rule with an iron fist for the next 21 years. In 1979 the military regime passed an amnesty law blocking the prosecution of its members for torture and other crimes. The amnesty still holds. http://williamblum.org/aer/read/135

That’s how they handle such matters in what used to be called The Third World. In the First World, however, they have no need for such legal niceties. In the United States, military torturers and their political godfathers are granted amnesty automatically, simply for being American, solely for belonging to the “Good Guys Club”.

So now, with the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA torture, we have further depressing revelations about US foreign policy. But do Americans and the world need yet another reminder that the United States is a leading practitioner of torture? Yes. The message can not be broadcast too often because the indoctrination of the American people and Americophiles all around the world is so deeply embedded that it takes repeated shocks to the system to dislodge it. No one does brainwashing like the good ol’ Yankee inventors of advertising and public relations. And there is always a new generation just coming of age with stars (and stripes) in their eyes.

The public also has to be reminded yet again that – contrary to what most of the media and Mr. Obama would have us all believe – the president has never actually banned torture per se, despite saying recently that he had “unequivocally banned torture” after taking office. http://williamblum.org/aer/read/135

Shortly after Obama’s first inauguration, both he and Leon Panetta, the new Director of the CIA, explicitly stated that “rendition” was not being ended. As the Los Angeles Times reported at the time: “Under executive orders issued by Obama recently, the CIA still has authority to carry out what are known as renditions, secret abductions and transfers of prisoners to countries that cooperate with the United States.” http://williamblum.org/aer/read/135

The English translation of “cooperate” is “torture”. Rendition is simply outsourcing torture. There was no other reason to take prisoners to Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Egypt, Jordan, Kenya, Somalia, Kosovo, or the Indian Ocean island of Diego Garcia, amongst other torture centers employed by the United States. Kosovo and Diego Garcia – both of which house large and very secretive American military bases – if not some of the other locations, may well still be open for torture business, as is the Guantánamo Base in Cuba.

Moreover, the key Executive Order referred to, number 13491, issued January 22, 2009, “Ensuring Lawful Interrogations”, leaves a major loophole. It states repeatedly that humane treatment, including the absence of torture, is applicable only to prisoners detained in an “armed conflict”. Thus, torture by Americans outside an environment of “armed conflict” is not explicitly prohibited. But what about torture within an environment of “counter-terrorism”?

The Executive Order required the CIA to use only the interrogation methods outlined in a revised Army Field Manual. However, using the Army Field Manual as a guide to prisoner treatment and interrogation still allows solitary confinement, perceptual or sensory deprivation, sensory overload, sleep deprivation, the induction of fear and hopelessness, mind-altering drugs, environmental manipulation such as temperature and noise, and stress positions, amongst other charming examples of American Exceptionalism.

After Panetta was questioned by a Senate panel, the New York Times wrote that he had “left open the possibility that the agency could seek permission to use interrogation methods more aggressive than the limited menu that President Obama authorized under new rules … Mr. Panetta also said the agency would continue the Bush administration practice of ‘rendition’ … But he said the agency would refuse to deliver a suspect into the hands of a country known for torture or other actions ‘that violate our human values’.” http://williamblum.org/aer/read/135

The last sentence is of course childishly absurd. The countries chosen to receive rendition prisoners were chosen precisely and solely because they were willing and able to torture them.

Four months after Obama and Panetta took office, the New York Times could report that renditions had reached new heights. http://williamblum.org/aer/read/135

The present news reports indicate that Washington’s obsession with torture stems from 9/11, to prevent a repetition. The president speaks of “the fearful excesses of the post-9/11 era”. There’s something to that idea, but not a great deal. Torture in America is actually as old as the country. What government has been intimately involved with that horror more than the United States? Teaching it, supplying the manuals, supplying the equipment, creation of international torture centers, kidnaping people to these places, solitary confinement, forced feeding, Guantánamo, Abu Ghraib, Bagram, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Chicago … Lord forgive us!

In 2011, Brazil instituted a National Truth Commission to officially investigate the crimes of the military government, which came to an end in 1985. But Mr. Obama has in fact rejected calls for a truth commission concerning CIA torture. http://williamblum.org/aer/read/135On June 17 of this year, however, when Vice President Joseph Biden was in Brazil, he gave the Truth Commission 43 State Department cables and reports concerning the Brazilian military regime, including one entitled “Widespread Arrests and Psychophysical Interrogation of Suspected Subversives.” http://williamblum.org/aer/read/135

Thus it is that once again the United States of America will not be subjected to any accountability for having broken US laws, international laws, and the fundamental laws of human decency. Obama can expect the same kindness from his successor as he has extended to George W.

“One of the strengths that makes America exceptional is our willingness to openly confront our past, face our imperfections, make changes and do better.” – Barack Obama, written statement issued moments after the Senate report was made public. http://williamblum.org/aer/read/135

And if that pile of hypocrisy is not big enough or smelly enough, try adding to it Bidens’ remark re his visit to Brazil: “I hope that in taking steps to come to grips with our past we can find a way to focus on the immense promise of the future.” http://williamblum.org/aer/read/135

If the torturers of the Bush and Obama administrations are not held accountable in the United States they must be pursued internationally under the principles of universal jurisdiction.

In 1984, an historic step was taken by the United Nations with the drafting of the “Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment” (came into force in 1987, ratified by the United States in 1994). Article 2, section 2 of the Convention states: “No exceptional circumstances whatsoever, whether a state of war or a threat of war, internal political instability or any other public emergency, may be invoked as a justification of torture.”

Such marvelously clear, unequivocal, and principled language, to set a single standard for a world that makes it increasingly difficult for one to feel proud of humanity. We cannot slide back. If today it’s deemed acceptable to torture the person who supposedly has the vital “ticking-bomb” information needed to save lives, tomorrow it will be acceptable to torture him to learn the identities of his alleged co-conspirators. Would we allow slavery to resume for just a short while to serve some “national emergency” or some other “higher purpose”?

If you open the window of torture, even just a crack, the cold air of the Dark Ages will fill the whole room.

Cuba … at long, long last … maybe …

Hopefully, it’s what it appears to be. Cuba will now be treated by the United States as a country worthy of at least as much respect as Washington offers to its highly oppressive, murdering, torturing allies in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Honduras, Israel, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and elsewhere.

It’s a tough decision to normalize relations with a country whose police force murders its own innocent civilians on almost a daily basis, and even more abroad, but Cuba needs to do it. Maybe the Cubans can civilize the Americans a bit.

Let’s hope that America’s terrible economic embargo against the island will go the way of the dinosaurs, and Cuba will be able to demonstrate more than ever what a rational, democratic, socialist society can create. But they must not open the economy for the Yankee blood-suckers to play with as they have all over the world.

And I’ll be able to go to Cuba not as a thief in the night covering my tracks and risking a huge fine.

But with the Republicans taking over Congress next month, all of this may be just a pipe dream.

Barack Obama could have done this six years ago when he took office; or five years ago when American Alan Gross was first arrested and imprisoned in Cuba. It would have been even easier back then, with Obama’s popularity at its height and Congress not as captured by the Know-Nothings as now.

So, Cuba outlasted all the punishment, all the lies, all the insults, all the deprivations, all the murderous sabotage, all the assassination attempts against Fidel, all the policies to isolate the country. But for many years now, it’s the United States that has been isolated in the Western Hemisphere.

Reason Number 13,336 why capitalism will be the death of us.

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria – the “superbugs” – if left unchecked, could result in 10 million deaths a year by 2050. New drugs to fight the superbugs are desperately needed. But a panel advising President Obama warned in September that “there isn’t a sufficiently robust pipeline of new drugs to replace the ones rendered ineffective by antibiotic resistance.”

The problem, it appears, is that “Antibiotics generally provide low returns on investment, so they are not a highly attractive area for research and development.” http://williamblum.org/aer/read/135

Aha! “Low returns on investment”! What could be simpler to understand? Is it not a concept worth killing and dying for? Just as millions of Americans died in the 20th century so corporations could optimize profits by not protecting the public from tobacco, lead, and asbestos.

Corporations are programmed to optimize profits without regard for the society in which they operate, in much the same way that cancer cells are programmed to proliferate without regard for the health of their host.

Did you receive the email, that is listed below, that was sent to me?

A copy of the email is posted below on this page.

 

 

Recently, a new product has arrived that will threaten the future of America and humanity. It could become equivalent to or greater than the British Empire’s plan … to destroy China.   Britain used war to defeat China and force opium to be sold to the people of China.  Do you remember ?

 

Check the email listed below and see its potential to addict Americans.

Could the consequent addiction and destruction of our youth and adults . . . by their habitual use of the product that is listed . . . be as disastrous in America and other countries  or even surpass the destructive effects that opium causes ? 

 

If this “product” is not legally controlled, what can we expect to happen in the lives of our youth and adults ? 

 

Should this product not be allowed to be purchased and used by anyone . . . without requiring the legal purpose and the control of its use . . . as is required for the medical purchase of opium?

 

Do you see the possible destruction of humanity that I see?

They fracked up… how the booming shale gas industry is destroying America

Inbox
x

Clayton Lindblom support@teslasecret.com via partnermark.com

Nov 15 (2 days ago)

to me
They called it the start of a new oil rush.

It is said to make the US the leading oil exporter… but the effects are a lot more serious than they thought. And repairing the damage, if it will be possible at all, will dwarf the total benefits as recent reports prove:

How fracking poisons our Food

Healthy farming needs abundant supplies of clean water, clean air, and clean soil. It needs a critical mass of acreage that is not fragmented by drill pads, access roads, pipelines and compressor stations. Farms need to be free of the stigma that may be attributed to food sourced from areas where fracking could take place.

A few points to consider:

  • Air-borne gases that are released in the drilling and transport process, and from thousands of diesel fueled truck trips per well, is converted to ground-level ozone when combined with sunlight. These emissions can cause health problems in humans and livestock. Ground level ozone has been shown to reduce crop yield by up to 30%, and endangers key feed crops such as clover, vital for pastured livestock.
  • Methane and other chemicals that seep out in the process will wind up in air and surface water such as farm ponds, streams and rivers that provide irrigation for livestock and crops.
  • Chemical residues in wastewater can poison animals.
  • Unlike agriculture’s water usage, water used for hydraulic fracturing is consumptive and permanently removed from the hydrological cycle. This is especially foolish and wasteful in areas of extreme drought where the availability of water is already shrinking.
  • It is impossible for adequate food safety inspections to occur since oil and gas companies are not required to fully disclose the chemicals used in the toxic drilling cocktail. There is no set process for testing for contaminants or complete knowledge of what to test for.
  • Interestingly, the ingredients of salt and water cannot receive organic certification.
  • Sales of food and farm products from fracked areas will be adversely affected by the wholesale and retail buyers distrust of the health and safety of the product, forcing the end of businesses, the loss of food, and the end of a way of life.

Fracking is depleting our water

As US public policy debates over the dangers and benefits of fracking for shale gas persist, a new report has emerged showing that the practice generated 280 billion gallons of toxic waste last year – containing cancer-causing and radioactive substances.

Fracking a single well can use between two and nine million gallons of water combined with sand and chemicals. Much of the fresh water used returns to the earth’s surface, but contains radium and bromides.

“When bromide in the wastewater mixes with chlorine (often used at drinking water treatment plants), it produces trihalomethanes, chemicals that cause cancer and increase the risk of reproductive or developmental health problems,” the report notes. It also found that 450,000 tons of air pollutants can potentially be produced in one year by the practice.
Fracking causes earthquakes

States where hydraulic fracturing is taking place have seen a surge in earthquake activity, raising suspicions that the unconventional drilling method could be to blame, especially the wells where the industry disposes of its wastewater.

Oklahoma has recorded nearly 250 small-to-medium earthquakes since January, according to statistics kept by the U.S. Geological Survey. That’s close to half of all the magnitude 3 or higher earthquakes recorded this year in the continental United States. The biggest concern was Oklahoma’s 5.7-magnitude earthquake in 2011.

A study published earlier this month in the journal Science suggests that just four wells injecting massive amounts of drilling wastewater into the ground are probably shaking up much of the state, accounting for one out of every five quakes from the eastern border of Colorado to the Atlantic coast.

The “shale oil miracle” has only worked to fill the pockets of Big Oil… while destroying the lives of American farmers…

And the consequences will be felt sooner rather than later…

Stay safe. Stay prepared.

On the cusp 

of annihilation

 

The failure to identify the forces

deliberately destroying the United States

 

 

By John Kaminski

pseudoskylax@gmail.com

http://therebel.org/en/kaminski

 

 

Because of our inability to cure the many and worsening social plagues that afflict us, there can be no greater, more horrifying evidence foreshadowing our complete demise as a free country than the recent assessment that the most likely U.S. presidential candidates for 2016 will be Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush.

 

In no uncertain terms, this sickening prospect means that the people who have run America into the ground, destroying its infrastructure and sabotaging its well being, will continue to do their dirty work unimpeded well into the future, however long (or short?) that might be.

 

Nowhere on the horizon of the political spectrum is there a coherent voice who is willing to fully explain how the United States of America has been kidnapped and mutilated by a demented foreign power motivated only by its own narcissistic psychoses.

 

Nor are there anywhere near enough forthright writers who will address the problem clearly, and outline the downward spiral of America’s well being as the result of the Jewish disfigurement of American institutions.

 

Certainly, there has been no change in who rules America since the Kennedy assassination of 1963, which appears to have been the last time any kind of public rhetoric demonstrated genuine and verifiable concern for the American people.

 

The last time any American president ever mentioned “morally repugnant secret societies”, John F. Kennedy was murdered a short while later, and the subject has seldom been brought up by any American leader of note, because all the presidents since then, to one degree or another, have been straitjacketed by these very same nefarious secret societies, who are exclusively comprised of Jewish billionaires who mask their ethnicity with a few token European royals pretending to be some other religious denomination but who are unmistakably guided by the xenophobic, homicidal and psychopathological tractates of the Talmud.

 

It has been a straight downhill slide into kneejerk totalitarianism ever since, in which Americans lose one right after another, day after day. As their Founding Fathers warned them so long ago, most ordinary citizens have no rights remaining by which to alleviate their ongoing social strangulation. The jobs are gone, the courts are corrupt and the bankers are not concerned by the pain of the people.

 

Annihilation is a strong word, but consider today’s headlines: hollow point bullets, Wi-Fi radiation and government engineered diseases like Ebola. Then there are the apparently natural disasters like Arctic methane and Yellowstone about to erupt. Too much for anyone to worry about, definitely not a normal world. Definitely a landscape fitting for Armageddon, for the annihilation of the world we thought we knew.

 

Despite the endless stream of partisan analyses that always detail the crimes but never name the criminals, there is no indication today that any of these destructive trends will be ameliorated, as the uber-wealthy manipulators who always get to pick their presidents have no adversary with the ability or the will to put them in their place, which rightly would be in the deepest bowels of hell.

 

The police are all on the take, the military remains compliant because its leaders are appointed by corruptible civilians, and the judiciary is totally controlled by the rich men who assign them their unassailable power.

 

And with a mentally defective populace unable to even perceive most of the problems created by the crimes that have taken place, the tawdry and corrupt yes men who pose as our presidents continue to erode the principles and practices that once made America the best place in the world to live.

 

Today, the U.S. is awash in Third World anarchy created by deliberately destabilizing immigration policies that have allowed criminal Jews to usurp the reigns of government by seizing control of America’s financial operations, and its media, university and business systems, and in their demonic processes, flood formerly civilized white nations with a torrential flood of savagely unreasonable nonwhite rapists.

 

The American people have been made to accept these abnormal practices as normal, and regard unhealthy medical procedures as healthy. They have been made to swallow completely artificial events as real as their so-called leaders stage atrocities to convince the Yankee lemmings to give up their guns and thereby forfeit their very last chance to forcibly remove the crooked shysters that have kidnapped their country and turned it into a bloody brothel of insane child abuse, deranged lesbian social workers and Frankenstein doctors.

 

One hundred years of artificial inflation have robbed Americans of all their property, which is now controlled by international con men who have allegiance to no nation, and are held in thrall to the savagery of entrenched Jewish swindlers who bankrupt every country they’re allowed to enter.

 

Today, the next generations of our formerly civilized countries are being poisoned from birth by cynically prescribed vaccinations and elementary school children are no longer educated in the simple values of mathematics, language and music but instead are instructed in the perversions of same-sex addictions and constant masturbation long before they ever reach the age of puberty, guaranteeing they will never be able to raise healthy families or live normal lives free of the debilitating curse of psychoactive drugs that will ruin their health and shorten their lives.

 

Quite by accident — or, because of my predisposition to read about ancient history in a lachrymose attempt to discern how we of this time differ from those of previous eras (and we don’t stand up too well, I might add) — I recently read the famous funeral oration of Pericles, the great champion of Athenian democracy, who set the standard for confident pride in his country, his history, exhibiting a pride of place and people that we no long possess.

 

The oration itself is almost impossible to comprehend in this age of TV and instant messages couched in retardate technospeak. Pericles makes no apology for pride in practices others can only imitate, and a society that favors the many instead of the few, with equal justice for all without regard to class or money.

 

The freedom which we enjoy in our government extends also to our ordinary life. There, far from exercising a jealous surveillance over each other, we do not feel called upon to be angry with our neighbour for doing what he likes, or even to indulge in those injurious looks which cannot fail to be offensive, although they inflict no positive penalty. But all this ease in our private relations does not make us lawless as citizens. Against this fear is our chief safeguard, teaching us to obey the magistrates and the laws, particularly such as regard the protection of the injured, whether they are actually on the statute book, or belong to that code which, although unwritten, yet cannot be broken without acknowledged disgrace.

 

Athenians lived exactly as they pleased, trusted their neighbors and were unafraid of danger as the condition of the world. Unlike any other nation in the world, Pericles boasted, Athenians regarded anyone who shirks his public duties not as unambitious but useless.

 

Yet perhaps because of the small population, secrecy was not something that could be practiced in society where all issues were on the table.

 

Instead of looking on discussion as a stumbling block in the way of action, we think it an indispensable preliminary to any wise action at all.

 

Today, in the name of national security, everything truly important is done in secret.

 

Athenian pride rested on the knowledge of those who know the difference between hardship and pleasure yet were never tempted to shrink from danger. They acquired their friends by giving, not receiving, favors, according to Pericles.

 

For it is only the love of honour that never grows old; and honour it is, not gain, as some would have it, that rejoices the heart of age and helplessness.

 

And where the rewards for merit are greatest, there are found the best citizens.

 

Men, and nations, of this mettle have, across time, been few and far between. One of the few modern examples of this kind of candid wisdom in the famous secret society speech by John F. Kennedy that wound up costing him his life.

 

The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.

 

http://www.jfklibrary.org/Research/Research-Aids/JFK-Speeches/American-Newspaper-Publishers-Association_19610427.aspx

 

 

Our noble traditions have not survived into the era of the New World Order, or, if they have, only in lobotomized form, where the secret is concealed among a small group of evil men and the public is fed a steady stream of calculated lies serving the agenda of those who wish to enslave everyone.

 

In the 44 years that have intervened since John F. Kennedy spoke those words, no major public figure has repeated them. On those words our very future had depended. Yet the public didn’t appreciate them when they were said, and our educators, trapped in the toxic thrall of government grants, have long ignored them.

 

Read the whole speech at the link provided. It’s not very long. In those words you will see what has happened to our once bright future, and even more vividly, you will witness the depraved criminality of the presidents we have had since.

 

We are lost, and the Jews who control our lives have made us lost, to take advantage of our ignorance and ultimately eliminate us from their demented equation.

 

If we are ever to find ourselves, we must get rid of the Jews in order to find out who we really are. Otherwise we will continue to be slaves to those who have no souls.

 

Unless we reclaim these legacies, we are lost. As human beings, as decent people, as inspiring souls by whom a worthwhile civilization can be built, without the daily practice and fervent belief in these legacies, we are lost, forever.

 

We heard JFK’s words 50 years ago and in our timid immaturity, did not act on them. So blame the problems on us old folks who didn’t know any better, or were afraid to speak out. It is long past time to awaken, slough off the criminals who control us. It is still not too late to correct the errors of the past, banish the Jews to a prison of their own warped desires, and proceed to a glorious future of humanity that awaits us had we but the courage to command it.

 

Otherwise our future is something you will not wish to know, and your children will hate you for it, if they don’t already.

Meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club

October 24, 2014, 19:00 Sochi

Vladimir Putin took part in the final plenary meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club’s XI session. The meeting’s theme is The World Order: New Rules or a Game without Rules.

NIKOLAI ZLOBIN: What about nationalism?

VLADIMIR PUTIN: Patriotism can turn into nationalism. I agree with you here, this is a very dangerous tendency. We have to keep this in mind and make sure it does not happen. It is dangerous for the country. I am the biggest nationalist in Russia. However, the greatest and most appropriate kind of nationalism is when you act and conduct policies that will benefit the people.

However, if nationalism means intolerance of other people, chauvinism – this would destroy this country, which was initially formed as a multi-ethnic and multi-confessional state. This would lead us not only into a dead end but also to self-destruction. Russia will do everything possible to make sure it doesn’t happen.

Terrorism against Iran … paid by We the People !

.10.2014 Author: Tony Cartalucci

http://journal-neo.org/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?lang=en&action=sdp_download_file&post=15699

US War on Iran Takes Bizarre Turn

Column: Politics

Region: Middle East

Country: Iran

It is not merely hyperbole when it is said the US created terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda or the so-called “Islamic State.” It is documented fact. The current conflict in the Middle East may appear to be a chaotic conflagration beyond the control of the United States and its many eager allies, but in reality it is the intentional, engineered creation of regional fronts in a war against Iran and its powerful arc of influence.

It is not Western policy that indirectly spurs the creation and perpetuation of terrorist organizations, but in fact, direct, intentional, unmistakable support.

This support would manifest itself in perhaps the most overt and bizarre declaration of allegiance to terrorism to date, US Army General Hugh Shelton on stage before terrorists of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK) and their Wahabist counterparts fighting in Syria, hysterically pledging American material, political, and strategic backing. MEK was listed for years by the US State Department as a foreign terrorist organization, but has received funding, arms, and safe haven by the United States for almost as long.

General Hugh’s speech titled, “Making Iranian mullahs fear, the MEK, come true,” was most likely never meant to be seen or fully understood by Americans. In titled alone, it is clear that US foreign policy intends to use the tool of terrorism to exact concessions from Tehran. If the true nature of America’s support for terrorist organizations like MEK were more widely known, the current narrative driving US intervention in Iraq and Syria would crumble.

MEK Has Killed US Servicemen, Contractors, and Iranian Civilians For Decades

MEK has carried out decades of brutal terrorist attacks, assassinations, and espionage against the Iranian government and its people, as well as targeting Americans including the attempted kidnapping of US Ambassador Douglas MacArthur II, the attempted assassination of USAF Brigadier General Harold Price, the successful assassination of Lieutenant Colonel Louis Lee Hawkins, the double assassinations of Colonel Paul Shaffer and Lieutenant Colonel Jack Turner, and the successful ambush and killing of American Rockwell International employees William Cottrell, Donald Smith, and Robert Krongard.

Admissions to the deaths of the Rockwell International employees can be found within a report written by former US State Department and Department of Defense official Lincoln Bloomfield Jr. on behalf of the lobbying firm Akin Gump in an attempt to dismiss concerns over MEK’s violent past and how it connects to its current campaign of armed terror – a testament to the depths of depravity from which Washington and London lobbyists operate.

To this day MEK terrorists have been carrying out attacks inside of Iran killing political opponents, attacking civilian targets, as well as carrying out the US-Israeli program of targeting and assassinating Iranian scientists. MEK terrorists are also suspected of handling patsies in recent false flag operations carried out in India, Georgia, and Thailand, which have been ham-handedly blamed on the Iranian government by the United States and Israel.

MEK is described by Council on Foreign Relations Senior Fellow Ray Takeyh as a “cult-like organization” with “totalitarian tendencies.” While Takeyh fails to expand on what he meant by “cult-like” and “totalitarian,” an interview with US State Department-run Radio Free Europe-Radio Liberty reported that a MEK Camp Ashraf escapee claimed the terrorist organization bans marriage, using radios, the Internet, and holds many members against their will with the threat of death if ever they are caught attempting to escape.

US Has Been Eagerly Supporting MEK Terrorists For Years

Besides providing MEK terrorists with now two former US military bases in Iraq as safe havens, the US has conspired to arm, fund, and back MEK for years in a proxy war against Iran.

Covert support for the US-listed terrorist group Mujahedeen e-Khalq (MEK) has been ongoing since at least 2008 under the Bush administration, when Seymour Hersh’s 2008 New Yorker article “Preparing the Battlefield,” reported that not only had MEK been considered for their role as a possible proxy, but that the US had already begun arming and financing them to wage war inside Iran:

The M.E.K. has been on the State Department’s terrorist list for more than a decade, yet in recent years the group has received arms and intelligence, directly or indirectly, from the United States. Some of the newly authorized covert funds, the Pentagon consultant told me, may well end up in M.E.K. coffers. “The new task force will work with the M.E.K. The Administration is desperate for results.” He added, “The M.E.K. has no C.P.A. auditing the books, and its leaders are thought to have been lining their pockets for years. If people only knew what the M.E.K. is getting, and how much is going to its bank accounts—and yet it is almost useless for the purposes the Administration intends.

More recently, the British Daily Mail published a stunning admission by “US officials” that Israel is currently funding, training, arming, and working directly with MEK. The Daily Mail article states:Seymore Hersh in an NPR interview, also claims that select MEK members have already received trainingin the US.

U.S. officials confirmed today that Israel has been funding and training Iranian dissidents to assassinate nuclear scientists involved in Iran’s nuclear program. Washington insiders confirmed there is a close relationship between Mossad and MEK.

In 2009, an extensive conspiracy was formulated within US policy think-tank Brookings Institution’s 2009 “Which Path to Persia?” report, proposing to fully arm, train, and back MEK as it waged a campaign of armed terror against the Iranian people. In their report, they openly conspire to use what is an admitted terrorist organization as a “US proxy” (emphasis added):

“Perhaps the most prominent (and certainly the most controversial) opposition group that has attracted attention as a potential U.S. proxy is the NCRI (National Council of Resistance of Iran), the political movement established by the MEK (Mujahedin-e Khalq). Critics believe the group to be undemocratic and unpopular, and indeed anti-American.

In contrast, the group’s champions contend that the movement’s long-standing opposition to the Iranian regime and record of successful attacks on and intelligence-gathering operations against the regime make it worthy of U.S. support. They also argue that the group is no longer anti-American and question the merit of earlier accusations. Raymond Tanter, one of the group’s supporters in the United States, contends that the MEK and the NCRI are allies for regime change in Tehran and also act as a useful proxy for gathering intelligence. The MEK’s greatest intelligence coup was the provision of intelligence in 2002 that led to the discovery of a secret site in Iran for enriching uranium.

Despite its defenders’ claims, the MEK remains on the U.S. government list of foreign terrorist organizations. In the 1970s, the group killed three U.S. officers and three civilian contractors in Iran. During the 1979-1980 hostage crisis, the group praised the decision to take America hostages and Elaine Sciolino reported that while group leaders publicly condemned the 9/11 attacks, within the group celebrations were widespread.

Undeniably, the group has conducted terrorist attacks—often excused by the MEK’s advocates because they are directed against the Iranian government. For example, in 1981, the group bombed the headquarters of the Islamic Republic Party, which was then the clerical leadership’s main political organization, killing an estimated 70 senior officials. More recently, the group has claimed credit for over a dozen mortar attacks, assassinations, and other assaults on Iranian civilian and military targets between 1998 and 2001. At the very least, to work more closely with the group (at least in an overt manner), Washington would need to remove it from the list of foreign terrorist organizations.”

Besides US Army General Hugh Shelton, other prominent US politicians to literally stand before crowds of baying MEK terrorists and their supporters include former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Howard Dean, Tom Ridge, John Lewis, Ed Rendell, former ambassador John Bolton, former FBI Director Louis Freeh, retired General Wesley Clark, Lee Hamilton, former US Marine Corps Commandant General James Jones, and Alan Dershowitz. US Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi would also stand in front of MEK terrorists to deliver to them an Iranian New Year “greeting.”

Blind Lust for Global Hegemony is Leading America Over a Cliff 

What it says about American foreign policy, to trick US servicemen and women into dying in far off lands to “fight terrorism” when US politicians in the highest positions of power openly pledge support to terrorism – using it as a battering ram against its enemies abroad, and failing to topple them by proxy, using their own terrorist hordes as a pretext for direct military intervention to do so – is that such policy is underpinned by nothing more than blind lust for power, wealth, and influence in senseless pursuit of global hegemony. There is no guiding principles of peace, stability, democracy, freedom, or any confining principles of humanity that prohibit US foreign policy from exercising the most abhorrent practices in order to achieve its goals.

Failure to identify these interests blindly chasing hegemony at the cost of global peace and prosperity leads not only America over a cliff into a ravine of madness, but the entire world as well. That a US general can stand before terrorists even as the US bombs two nations in the name of fighting terrorism, is but a glimpse into this madness.For America and the Western aligned nations and interests caught in its orbit, there is no future. Chasing hegemony for the sake of hegemony alone leaves no room for actual progress. When anything and everything obstructing the path to hegemony is seen as an “enemy” to be destroyed by any means necessary, that includes setting aside resources and attention to solving some of the most pressing issues of our time – health care, infrastructure, education, better jobs, peace, and prosperity. All of these are seen as obstacles toward hegemony, and the very same interests standing before MEK terrorists pledging America’s resources to their campaign of terrorism against Iran, are the same interests calling for and implementing austerity upon the American people to continuously fuel its foreign adventures.
