Stopping ISIS and its Western Support in Syria: A Letter to the Sydney Morning Herald and Media Watch


Dear SMH and specifically Paul McGeough (author of ‘Australia still at US beck and call’),

As a seven year geopolitical blogger who has been following events in Syria since the beginning in 2011, it is vitally important that the Australian public be informed of western support for ISIS which is being used as a tool for regime change in that country.

Our current actions in supplying arms to the Kurdish forces in Northern Iraq is a continuation of this ‘covert’ US policy. With ISIS blocked in the North and South of Iraq they will inevitably turn their attention towards the overthrow of the Assad Government in Syria. This is undoubtedly the objective of the US administration which refused to bomb ISIS columns in the open desert (after Iraqi requests for help were denied) despite the fact they, the US, routinely drone strike suspected/alleged terrorists in places such as Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia.

During 2012 The Guardian and Der Spiegel newspapers both reported that US, French and British advisors had been training ISIS jihadists in the use of anti-tank weapons in Jordan for use in the proxy war in Syria. This story was later picked up by Reuters:

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/03/10/us-syria-crisis-rebels-usa-idUSBRE9290FI20130310  

It is the US led western military alliance, that includes Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, that has been actively arming and funding the jihadists fighting in Syria since the beginning of the conflict. Originally operations into Syria, were staged out of the NATO airbase at Incerlik under US guidance: http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2011/11/21/bfp-exclusive-syria-secret-us-nato-training-support-camp-to-oust-current-syrian-president/.

Before 2011 we have the 2007 report from the journalist Seymour Hersh (http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2007/03/05/the-redirection?currentPage=all) that indicated the US had changed strategies in the Middle East and planned to support Sunni extremist groups that would undermine the governments in Syria and eventually Iran. Also in 2007 we have the Democracy Now! interview with retired General Wesley Clark who reported that the Bush Administration, only days after the 9/11/2001 attacks, wanted to attack 7 countries in 5 years - countries that included Syria and Iraq (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RC1Mepk_Sw). In 2011 ex French foreign minister Roland Dumas reported that he had been contacted two years earlier by British officials asking if he would help them set up destabilisation operations in Syria https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kz-s2AAh06I  

Recently I heard that Senator John McCain was calling for more arms to be supplied to the Free Syria Army in order to oust ISIS from Syria – which would be a disaster since the FSA consist of jihadists who have been recorded executing civilians and engaged in acts of barbarism.

We must be mindful that present US actions, or inactions, involving ISIS in Iraq are directly related to the proxy war in Syria. Everything is being done to remove Assad from Government, and essentially Balkanise the country. Your readers should also understand that there is no evidence to show that President Assad used chemical weapons on his people, and that UN-backed, and MIT-backed analysis indicated the extremists were responsible.

I urge you to watch the following video titled The Covert Origins of ISIS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMjXbuj7BPI&list=UUEHsSWvrGVSIA63OV3J6vhA and consider what the consequences of our actions in Iraq will be, and consider what our ally, the USA, is actually doing in terms of its Middle East foreign policy objectives.

As a widely read public platform, the SMH and Fairfax Media actually has the capability to stop the wars, or at least hamstring certain war operations in the region by reporting the facts covered in the links.

Please take action

Ps. Same goes for Media Watch. Inadequate reporting on these events grossly misleads the public, and has consequences measured in human lives and suffering. Please act.

Senator Thanks President Assad for Saving Syrian Christians from Jihadists


Syrian President Bashar al-Assad should be lauded for his efforts to protect Christians from the radical militants of the Islamic State, according to Virginia State Sen. Richard Black. In May, the Republican wrote a letter to the Syrian leader, openly thanking his army and air force for providing protection from jihadists. As the IS threat grows, the senator believes showing support for the Assad is becoming even more important.



Assad, who did not gas his own people, as alleged by the Obama Administration, is the secular force STOPPING the jihadist extremists - and would be supported by the West if they really wanted to prevent the rise of terror groups.

This interview includes an admission that the Syrian rebels used the Sarin gas in all the attacks. However, the Senator is wrong about 911.

Ebola Claims Lives of Prominent Doctors


Aid workers fighting the Ebola epidemic in western Africa are increasingly contracting the disease themselves. The potentially deadly virus has infected over 2,600 people since the beginning of the outbreak in December 2013, with 1,400 of those patients now dead. Dr. Sahr Rogers, a prominent physician in Sierra Leone, died Wednesday, while Dr. Abraham Borbor of Liberia succumbed to the disease Sunday, despite being administered the experimental drug ZMapp. RT’s Manila Chan takes a look at their deaths and what they mean for other patients



The fact that a large number of medical professionals, who have taken precautions, are falling ill, indicates this virus is more easily transmitted than in previous outbreaks. It seems that the numbers of infected people in large cities is set to go up drastically. All borders must be closed.

Will The U.S Lead The World Into Nuclear Holocaust? (ft. Ray McGovern)


Alex Jones speaks with former top CIA analyst and presidential advisor Ray McGovern about the current situation with Russia.



Important political information on this issue from Ray McGovern who sees a de-escalation, at least from the Russian side. As for the US antagonists, we can expect more of the same. Hopefully their pro-war maneuvers fall flat. This is a great interview worth checking out.

The biggest threat to peace at the moment, that would help usher in a more fully formed Police State, and provide cover for a financial (stockmarket) collapse, would appear to be from a false flag extremist attack coming from the Middle East.

The Covert Origins of ISIS


Evidence exposing who put ISIS in power, and how it was done.



One comment - ISIS might be allowed to continue operations in Syria for quite some time, rather than see them destroyed in the near term. Chaos and destruction is the goal for the neocons that drive US foreign policy.

Washington Piles Lie Upon Lie [About Ukraine] - Paul Craig Roberts


The latest Washington lie, this one coming from NATO, is that Russia has invaded Ukraine with 1,000 troops and self-propelled artillery.
 
How do we know that this is a lie? Is it because we have heard nothing but lies about Russia from NATO, from US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, from assistant secretary of state Victoria Nuland, from Obama and his entire regime of pathological liars, and from the British, German, and French governments along with the BBC and the entirety of the Western media?

This, of course, is a good reason for knowing that the latest Western propaganda is a lie. Those who are pathological liars don’t suddenly start telling the truth.
 
But there are even better reasons for understanding that Russia has not invaded Ukraine with 1,000 troops.
 
One reason is that Putin has invested heavily in diplomacy backed by unprovocative behavior. He would not risk his bet on diplomacy by sending in troops too few in number to have a decisive effect on the outcome.

Another reason is that if Putin decides he has no alternative to sending the Russian military to protect the Russian residents in eastern and southern Ukraine, Putin will send in enough troops to do the job quickly as he did in Georgia when the American and Israeli trained Georgian army invaded South Ossetia and was destroyed in a few hours by the Russian response. If you hear that 100,000 Russian troops accompanied by air cover have invaded Ukraine, it would be a more believable claim.

A third reason is that the Russian military does not need to send troops into Ukraine in order to stop the bombing and artillery shelling of the Russian populations by Washington’s puppet government in Kiev. The Russian air force can easily and quickly destroy the Ukrainian air force and artillery and, thereby, stop the Ukrainian attack on the secessionist provinces.

It was only two weeks ago that a fabricated report spread by the UK Guardian and the BBC that a Russian armored convoy entered Ukraine and was destroyed by the Ukrainian Military. And two weeks prior to that we had the hoax of the satellite images allegedly released by the US State Department that the corrupt US ambassador in Kiev spread around the world on social media allegedly showing that Russian forces were firing into Ukraine.
------------------------------------------------
The mountain of lies piled up by Western governments and media has obscured the true story. The US government orchestrated the overthrow of the elected government in Ukraine and imposed a US puppet in Kiev. Washington’s puppet government began issuing threats and committing violent acts against the Russian populations in the former Russian territories that Soviet leaders attached to Ukraine. The Russian people in eastern and southern Ukraine resisted the threat brought to them by Washington’s puppet government in Kiev.
http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/08/28/washington-piles-lie-upon-lie-paul-craig-roberts/

If Russia had really invaded we would see evidence of their columns crossing the border, and confirmation from OSCE observers who are on the border, but we have nothing - only commercial satellite pictures of Russian equipment in positions on both sides of the frontier. Their point of origin is not established. Both sides within Ukraine use the same equipment.

Once again the evidence of Russian involvement does not exist.

This reminds me of the NATO claim about a huge build up of 40,000 troops on the Russian border in March which was revealed as a complete lie an NBC news crew that drove the border and saw nothing. Later it was revealed that the NATO satellite pictures were of a military exercise taken some years earlier.

The reason for the hysterical Russian 'invasion' accusation made by Kiev, which was echoed in various western capitals, is because the Ukraine Army in the East is losing badly.

'Both Sides of Ukraine Conflict Use Russian Weapons'

On Thursday, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said Russian troops had entered Ukraine. The statement came as NATO released satellite images that it claimed showed Russian self-propelled artillery on Ukrainian territory. Daniel McAdams from the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, share his thoughts on how credible these statements may be.

There is no invasion as characterised in the mainstream reports. There are OSCE monitors on the borders and they have not seen anything.

Should Australia be Involved in Stopping ISIS? Background Information: A Letter to Australian Politicians (forwarded to Media)


I've been emailing various Australian politicians concerning their deliberations to join in future US attacks against ISIS. Feel free to share this message that cuts at the theatre currently being played out in the mainstream press.

LETTER:

With talk about the rise of ISIS in Iraq and whether we should become involved, you should consider the following information.

As a geopolitical blogger you ...should know that ISIS has only become a formidable force because of backing from various nation states such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Jordan and Qatar - states in religious and economic opposition to the nations targeted by these extremists.

The US has deliberately failed to act against ISIS or its Middle Eastern support network because they are also involved in using the group as a tool to put pressure on the pro-Iranian Maliki Government, now removed, and to attack Syria. This is why early requests from Iraq for air support were denied.

You should also realise that the present air attacks conducted by the US against ISIS, after they moved too close to their oil interests in Kurdish controlled Iraq, were extremely limited.

The idea that it is difficult, politically or otherwise, to hit columns of Toyota pick-up trucks in the open desert, is theatre - especially coming from an Administration that does not ask permission to conduct drone strikes.

Months ago I predicted that little action would be taken by the US as ISIS rampaged across Iraq. They are 'our terrorists'.

For months this sorry saga has played out in broad daylight through Western Iraq and Northern Syria and no real action was taken. You will not get any real answers from the US - considering that they deliberately lied about Assad using chemical weapons against his own people (UN-backed, and MIT-backed evidence shows that the rebels were responsible for each instance vs bald faced US assertions).

You might try talking to ASIS chiefs about what is really going on over there, but having some idea as to how intelligence people operate, it's likely they will repeat whatever lie they think is convenient.

I strongly urge you and/or members of you staff to watch (and share) the following video featuring Asia Times journalist Pepe Escobar that sums up the situation. You can easily do more research if you choose to.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=928zEzibs-w&list=UU1vTH0ByVIcIOB83FbvHP7Q

In summation, ISIS forces can be largely destroyed using US airpower at relatively short notice, and it can be cut off from its Nation State support network, although the latter proposition would be more difficult - the problem is the geopolitical aspect to the situation.

You must understand that ISIS, like other extremist forces in the Middle East and North Africa, are doing the work of foreign policy makers in Washington and, to a lesser extent, in Brussels (NATO).

Thanks for your time and good luck.

The Crisis in Libya Explained




A good video that explains the fact that there are many different fighting factions presently operating in Libya. However it only briefly touches on the work of outside elements. During the 2011 war foreign special forces soldiers were active in co-ordinating the battle strikes that defeated Gaddafi's troops, and there was also active sponsorship of the rebellion early on in order to promote destabilisation.

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the high cost of helping politicians with low rates . . . from the increase in the cost of raising a child to the Greater Depression in Europe. And yet, it is the voter who reelects the politicians based on cheap money induced house price rises. In the second half, Max interviews filmmaker and bitcoin enthusiast, Julia Tourianski, about her online video, The Declaration of Bitcoin’s Independence.



My only concern about Bitcoin is that it is a likely target for the present powers-that-should-not-be banksters.

Poroshenko Triggers 'Invasion' Alarm as Kiev Crumbles Under Militia Offensive


Ukraine's President has said Russia's invading East Ukraine - although the statement has already been rejected by Moscow. The strong rhetoric comes amid a powerful counter-offensive by anti-government forces in Ukraine's restive Eastern regions.



Eastern Ukrainian militia are well equipped with numbers of tanks, artillery and other armoured vehicles. And if Russia is aiding the rebels in the East of Ukraine it is because of the NATO backed fascists occupying Kiev that caused the conflict in the first place.

There would be no fighting if the forces from Kiev withdrew and proper elections were held with perhaps the east of the country made into a semi autonomous region.

MH17 FULLY EXPOSED!! You Won't Believe The SHOCKING TRUTH About the Ukraine FALSE FLAG


When Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 went down on July 17, 2014, we were immediately inundated with base propaganda trying to convince us that the shootdown could be traced back to the Kremlin. But what was this rush to judgement based on? What have we learned about the crash since then? Why has MH17 completely disappeared from the news cycle? And who really stood to benefit from the disaster? Find out the answers to these questions and more in this week's edition of The Corbett Report.



A note about some of the forensics here.

The working theory is that the Su-25 aircraft/murder weapon, which can fly to 10,000m for short durations, at first fired an R-60 heat seeking missile from a distance and then performed a beam/side attack using its 30mm cannon. One should note that the missile could have also been fired from a frontal position since modern heat seekers are all aspect weapons.

Corbett indicates alleged bullet holes in MH17. In the picture some of the holes in the skin are pushed outward as well as inward. This may be because the 30mm ammunition was of the explosive variety which would create exit holes.

In terms of the 'pristine passports'. This is not a mystery like the 911 passports. MH17 did not slam into a solid structure in a whole state but split open at altitude, spilling the contents over a wide area. Debris 'soft landed' such that you would expect to find undamaged materials. Pristine passports contained in bags are expected.

NATO is the Greatest Threat to Peace on the Planet


Under the pretext of an 'overt' Russian threat, NATO is pushing for a ‘readiness action plan’ that will bring the Cold War military bloc closer to Russian borders than ever - even despite objections from some NATO members. James Corbett, editor of the Corbett Report, an independent Japan-based news outlet, gives his perspective on the matter.

Prof. Omid Safi: Majority of Young Americans Don't Support Israel Anymore


According to Prof. Omid Safi, although the Western governments have been mostly silent on the carnage of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, the people in different countries, from France to Brazil and from Malaysia to Argentina have strongly stood by the people of Palestine and held massive demonstrations to voice their support for them.

"The latest studies indicate that now a majority of younger people in America are no longer supportive of Israeli policies," said Prof. Safi in an exclusive interview with Fars News Agency. "For the first time, many Americans are able to see firsthand the reality of the brutal oppression that Palestinians have been suffering from for decades. Second, there is a translation of the Palestinian cause from an “Arab cause” or a “Muslim cause” to a humanitarian cause," he added.

"Many people are increasingly able to relate to Palestine as what it is and what it has been for decades: a human rights catastrophe," Safi noted.

Australian Bureau of Meteorology Accused of Criminally Adjusted Global Warming


The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has been caught red-handed manipulating temperature data to show "global warming" where none actually exists.

At Amberley, Queensland, for example, the data at a weather station showing 1 degree Celsius cooling per century was "homogenized" (adjusted) by the Bureau so that it instead showed a 2.5 degrees warming per century.

At Rutherglen, Victoria, a cooling trend of -0.35 degrees C per century was magically transformed at the stroke of an Australian meteorologist's pen into a warming trend of 1.73 degrees C per century.

Last year, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology made headlines in the liberal media by claiming that 2013 was Australia's hottest year on record. This prompted Australia's alarmist-in-chief Tim Flannery - an English literature graduate who later went on to earn his scientific credentials with a PhD in palaeontology, digging up ancient kangaroo bones - to observe that global warming in Australia was "like climate change on steroids."

But we now know, thanks to research by Australian scientist Jennifer Marohasy, that the hysteria this story generated was based on fabrications and lies.
http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-London/2014/08/25/Australian-Bureau-of-Meteorology-accused-of-Criminally-Adjusted-Global-Warming

There is no excuse for homogenizing the data here.
