    The US Has Been Giving Afghan Children Violent Books to Indoctrinate them to Jihad – It Worked

    By John Vibes on January 9, 2016


    ... the textbooks were published in the dominant Afghan languages of Dari and Pashtu and developed in the early 1980’s at a cost of $51 million.

    The Unites States government has played a crucial role in the development of the complex and volatile political situation that now exists in the Middle East, and they have had a heavy hand in influencing the region since the first world war.

    From propping up dictators to funding rebel groups for regime change, the U.S. and their allies have been creating monsters in the Middle East for generations. Western involvement in the region became more pronounced and more militarized during the Cold War, where the western allies and the Soviets fought proxy wars all over the world.

    Afghanistan was one of the primary battlegrounds where these proxy wars took place, and at the time, the U.S. military was supplying militants in Afganistan with training and weapons to be used against the Soviets who also had political and strategic interests in the region.

    The tactics used by the U.S. government extended far beyond traditional warfare and entered the realm of psychological warfare. From the Cold War period until very recently, the U.S. government spent millions of dollars supplying Afghan schoolchildren with propagandized textbooks that had violent images and militant jihadi teachings. The motive behind this propaganda was to actually radicalize the Afghan children so they would be more willing to fight against the Soviets when they got older.

    According to the Washington Post, the textbooks were published in the dominant Afghan languages of Dari and Pashtu and developed in the early 1980’s at a cost of $51 million.

    The schoolbooks were even approved by the Taliban because the teachings were not far off from their own worldview.

    This propaganda effort was only made public after the U.S. government went to war in Afghanistan in 2002 and it was revealed through the media that the western curriculum being taught in Afghan schools was actually promoting jihad.

    At the time, President Bush was forced to respond to the scandal, and he promised that the curriculum would be changed to reflect a more peaceful worldview. Bush promised that 10 million textbooks with updated curriculum would be sent to Afghan schools and he claimed that the new books would teach “respect for human dignity, instead of indoctrinating students with fanaticism and bigotry.”

    Chris Brown, head of book revision for AID’s Central Asia Task Force admitted that the textbooks were initially designed as anti-soviet propaganda.

    “I think we were perfectly happy to see these books trashing the Soviet Union,” Brown said.

    Although, he added the ideas in the textbooks were updated for a new era.
    “We turned it from a wartime curriculum to a peacetime curriculum,” he said of the new books.

    The textbooks had reportedly portrayed the society in Afghanistan of having a “warrior culture” that was destined to fight a holy war.

    Ahmad Fahim Hakim, an Afghan teacher who is very familiar with the books explained that “The pictures [in] the texts are horrendous to school students, but the texts are even much worse.”

    Many experts claim that these books are still in use today in Afghan schools, despite efforts from UNICEF to destroy them and replace them with their newer versions.

    According to a recent report from the Post, Dana Burde, an assistant professor of international education at New York University, says the Taliban is reprinting and using old U.S.-sponsored jihadist books to influence children in areas where the militants still hold sway. Burde says she found multiple reprinted copies of some of the texts, including a 2011 edition in the Pakistani city of Peshawar.

    As images of ISIS beheading their victims dressed in orange jumpsuits are plastered on televisions across the nation, and knowing that the US has been teaching this to children, hot air from the establishment decrying these acts rings hollow.

    Any government who would use innocent children as pawns and teach them to become vicious killers, for their own personal gain, is far beyond criminal…it’s downright evil.

    Khazarian/Zionist duplicity knows no bounds. The vile excesses these duplicitous usurers stoop to are beyond reason. Perversion of justice, demolition of moral values and the family, media manipulation, and poisoning us all from the skies, robbing innocents of their life savings to fund their on-a-whim lifestyles, unfortunately, us folk are now aware, and pride goes becore the major fall.....
    Weather wars are becoming obvious, more questions are being asked, people can't be fooled much longer. It is NOT 'climate change', it is deliberate climate manipulation globally for bankster/corporate profit. This has to be stopped by those who are aware !

    Interesting article by Preston James and Mike Harris of VT:

    Putin’s Dilemma
    By Preston James, Ph.D on January 13, 2016

    Is it time to cut the head off the Khazarian Mafia snake that has been parasitizing the World and trying to destroy and enslave Russians for over 1,000 years?
    by Preston James and Mike Harris
    l

    When the US Military was sent into the first Gulf war, the rationalization was that Saddam unjustifiably invaded Kuwait as an act of outright aggression, a serious war crime in and of itself.

    The American people were never told the truth about this by the Controlled Major Mass Media (CMMM).

    As usual there is always more to any story like this behind the lines that never gets told in the CMMM, the main propaganda arm of the USG and the Pentagon which have both been deeply infiltrated and hijacked by the Khazarian Mafia (KM).

    The actual thing that set this invasion of Kuwait off like a match to kindling was the secret deployment of horizontal drilling into Saddam’s main oil field by Kuwait, and then his being informed of that illegal act by April Glaspie, the US Ambassador.

    This actual cause that set off Saddam to invade Kuwait was unknown and unpublished at the time except by Intel insiders and those in the top positions of the CIA, the Pentagon, the State Department and the Administration.

    This was all part of a sophisticated US covert operation on the KM’s behalf to take America to war in the Mideast for Israel further the KM’s “Greater Israel Plan”.

    On the one hand the US Administration along with other NATO nations had been selling huge amounts of arms to Saddam to regain oil dollars spent by the West purchasing Iraqi Oil and were helping him arm to the teeth. Other sophisticated covert operation were conducted by the KM using Cutouts inside the Pentagon and Israel to encourage Saddam to wage war against Iran to weaken both Iraq and Iran.

    The purpose of all this was to create chaos to destabilize the Mideast as part of the 50 year “Greater Israel Plan”, and to sell lots of armaments and war supplies to make huge continuing profits for the large KM related Defense contractors and banks.


    The US used Saddam’s invasion of Kuwait as an excuse to wage a limited war with Iraq and to set up a no fly zone to maintain a control position for later pre-emptive invasions which were planned by the KM and it’s set of Sayanims in PNAC.

    On one hand the US was running a “no fly zone” and using fake Intel to set up another war with Saddam, this time ending in a partial invasion of Iraq.

    This invasion part way into Iraq caused the destruction of its infrastructure and its society and the mass-murder of over one million innocent civilians. It was as if the right hand didn’t know what the left hand was doing. But this confusion and counter purposed tasks always accomplished some main goals. It kept the American Military Industrial Complex profitable.

    The attack on America on 9-11-01 was an engineered staged, Gladio-style False-flag attack run by Israel on behalf of the Khazarian Mafia with the cooperation and support of the US Administration, the JCS, the USAF, NORAD and the FAA.

    It was an operation planned by PNAC, a bunch of rabid Israeli-American “Israeli-first” Dual Citizens run by the KM. These parasitical slime balls are KM Cutouts, American stooges and Traitors of the first order, real enemies within the Gates of America who have been functioning as secret agents of espionage for the KM.

    This 9-11-01 false-flag attack was blamed on Osama bin Laden and Afghanistan along with Saddam Hussein and Iraq. But also blamed were all radical, extremist Islamics which were referred in a way in the CMMM as if that was most Islamics not just a small minority.

    US Intel was conjuring up fake Intel to support these conclusions and to use this 9-11-01 attack on America to justify pre-emptive wars in Afghanistan and Iraq on behalf of Israel and the KM.

    It was also used to justify the assassinations of alleged (but never tried in a court of law) Islamic Extremists. Some journalists suspected VP Dick Cheney made all these decisions of who was to be assassinated without Bush2 even being involved since he controlled JSOC.


    Official US Military “Playing Cards” were printed up and distributed to US Forces deployed to the Mideast. US soldiers and allies were encouraged to kill any “terrorist” listed on the cards.

    These pre-emptive Mideast wars were waged under the rationalization, “they attacked us first”, and “we need to get them over there because they will eventually come here and get us here on our home turf”.

    These were big lies, and were actually US Administration and Pentagon war propaganda, “big-lies” created by the PNAC Dual Citizens and top NeoCons on behalf of Netanyahu and the KM.

    In fact all of these Mideast wars have been surrogate wars on behalf of Israel, the Khazarian Mafia and its associated corporate buddies in Big Banking, Big Oil, and Big Defense including the Pentagon which is a revolving door with the largest defense contractors.

    Putin’s situation with Syria is different, radically different than the USA’s relationship with Israel.

    thanks Callista. in my opinion this article is mostly right. though if you sit on top of the pyramid and see that your structure is being exposed, given that you are antonymous. then wont it be obvious to stitch up couple of levels below you by pointing all the fingers towards them? amount of times Khazarian Mafia is mentioned there is suspecious. perhaps we are seeing merely the executioners of the structure?

    no wonder jerusalem was destroyer so many times. it seems the only solution is to chase them up to their earth hq. feel kind of sorry for everyday joe in israel. they'll probably defend their masters in the name of tora and holy land..

    Sorcha's report on a top US official dropping in on Russia to warn WW III is about to begin...

    Top Obama Official “Demands To Land” At Russian Military Base, Warns Of War

    An absolutely astonishing Ministry of Defense (MoD) “urgent action report” just released in the Kremlin states that less than 24 hours after Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry agreed to meet in Zurich, Switzerland on 20 January, a US military “operated” aircraft carrying one of his top subordinates approached Federation airspace “demanding” immediate permission to land at the highly secretive Chkalovsk Naval Airbase located in the Kaliningrad Oblast.



    According to this report, US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland had just left the Vilnius International Airport in Lithuania aboard her US military “managed/controlled” aircraft after her meeting with that nations Foreign Minister, Lazar Comanescu, on a planned flight course for Berlin, Germany, when this “bizarre” incident occurred—and which MoD intelligence analysts are describing as a “Rudolf Hess type moment” due to his being Nazi Germany’s second in command only to Adolph Hitler when on 10 May 1941 he flew to Scotland in an attempt to make peace with Britain and avoid World War II—and which appears to have been this top Obama regime officials “twisted intent”.





    Upon Assistant Secretary Nuland’s “Aerospace Forces assisted landing” at Chkalovsk, this report continues, her “further demand” to meet personally with President Putin was denied due to the Foreign Ministry reporting that her “allegiance/devotion” was to former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and not the Obama regime itself as she had previously been a top aide to President William Clinton known as “Doughnut Dolly”.

    President Putin did, however, this report notes, agree to send his top aide Vladislav Surkov to meet with Assistant Secretary Nuland and also authorized the Foreign Ministry to report: “Nuland has arrived to the Kaliningrad region, and the meeting with Surkov will be held at the presidential residence in the city of Pionersky. It will be a closed meeting.”

    Initial reports from Federal Security Service (FSB) Special Forces agents assigned to protecting President Putin and his residences, this report says, describe Assistant Secretary Nuland upon her landing and being escorted to Pionersky as being in a “highly agitated” mental state appearing to be “near/close to a breakdown” and giving expletive filled warnings that “War is coming! War is coming!” and alleging that Russia had “broken its promise” and “now the whole world will pay”.

    As to what “promise” Russia had broken this report doesn’t say, but this reports language appears to indicate that Assistant Secretary Nuland doesn’t know either as she continually referred to President Putin as “your ****ing tsar” instead of his correct title.

    Equally as troubling about Assistant Secretary Nuland’s “rants/sayings” while in the presence of FSB agents, this report continues, was her claiming that President Obama was in the process of “cleaning house to protect himself” and “what happened in Hawaii is just the start and I’m going to be next”.

    Though full details are not yet known, this report grimly notes, Assistant Secretary Nuland’s “fears” of Hawaii appear to be related to the reported crash of two US Marine helicopters off Hawaii that occurred shortly after she landed at Chkalovsk—and whose Special Forces troops believed aboard these crashed helicopters provided security for President Obama during his recent holiday vacation spent there.

    Critical background information about Assistant Secretary Nuland contained in this report also notes that she was an integral part of the “Hillary Clinton Cabal” that destroyed the nation of Ukraine in an action the top US security firm Stratfor (aka The Shadow CIA) called “the most blatant coup in history”—and who was secretly recorded creating the “new” neo-Nazi government of that nation and pushing aside European concerns of what she was doing by stating: “**** the EU! Exactly!”



    As the more “highly classified” portions of this MoD report are beyond our ability to report on at this time, we will, of course, provide more information about this astonishing turn of events as we learn it... link

    Yesterday I saw this vid:

    Sir Julian Rose: ALERT! The situation in Poland is critical


    and today this article appeared in Veterans Today:

    POLAND WILL BEGIN DIVIDING UKRAINE (http://www.veteranstoday.com/2016/01...iding-ukraine/http://www.veteranstoday.com/2016/01...iding-ukraine/

    Originally appeared at Rusplt, translated by Comrade Korolyov exclusively for SouthFront

    Ambitions and old scores of Russia’s historical opponents will help to find a solution to the Ukrainian question

    Polands threatens to become the EU’s main problem in 2016, according to Austrian Der Standard publishment. The winning party “Right and Justice” (translated from Russian translation of the original Polish name), that won the majority of votes in the Seim, is nowadays conducting a coup d’état, establishing control over all governmental institutions, including the Constitutional Court.

    The right-winged conservative orientation of Warsaw makes it remember old Polish-Ukrainian arguments and scores, and claim its rights on the historically Polish lands of Western Ukraine. Russia can “heat” the situation according to her own interests. Dividing Ukraine can help Novorossiya to separate, leaving only a dozen central regions under Kiev’s control.

    The “Right and Justice” party under Yaroslav Kachinsky came to power last autumn and completely legally – as a result of democratic elections. After it received the majority of seats in the parliament, it, for the first time in the modern Polish history, formed a single-party government. And this time there was not a single Communist, Socialist or other left-wing party in the Seim.

    Polish President Andjey Duda – is also from Right and Justice. The total control received by the conservatives of the jurisdictional and executive powers allowed them to develop their success. According to the Seim-approved law, the quorum of the Constitutional Court has been increased from 9 to 13 judges, and the decisions will be made not by majority, but by two-thirds of the votes. This way, the work of this highest law institution is de-facto paralyzed.

    Right and Justice are “eurosceptics”. Their ideal – is a strong Poland with little influence from the EU, or, if possible with no influence at all. Factually, this is a Polish analogue to the French “National Front”. Also, what makes the Polish conservatives stand out is their honest-to-god Russophobian attitude.

    In the setting of absolutely unlimited power, the right-winged conservative ideology will undoubtedly become the main Party Line of Polish foreign policy, and this means, old historical scores will be attempted to be settled, interests and claims of this formerly powerful European country will be revived, as it happened in history before. The neighbours of this new “Grand Duchy of Poland” should brace themselves.

    Geopolitics is back on the menu

    Polish ambitions were always grandiose. The four divisions this country lived through are living proof of this: only the aggressive defeated suffer such a fate. Nowadays, when the foreign policy is turning out rather nicely for the Polish, it seems, we are to expect some sort of a revanchist movement within Polish governmental circles. Poland is being backed by the “British world” with the U.S. in it’s lead, whose loyal European puppets are Warsaw and London (as yet another eurosceptic and EU’s critic). No longer wishing to serve Germany’s interests, the leader of new non-military eurointegration, Poland dreams of simultaneously play the role of one of the leading European states. This is where Right and Justice triumph’s roots are set.

    This was already understood in the EU. Luxemburg’s Foreign Affairs Ministry’s head Jean Asselbourne called what is happening in Poland now “strange and scary”: in his opinion, the attacks on independence of courts, mass media and methods, which are used to do this, are a spit in the face of European principles. “The European Union must explained to the Polish government, without any delay, that you cannot do this”, – says Asselbourne. However, to do this to a legally elected government is unclear. The expulsion of Poland from the EU is not outlined in any of the allied agreements, is what Der Standard reminds us, meaning any threats are useless.

    We must note, that Warsaw’s strife to play an increasing role in the international affairs was predicted in Stratfor’s analysis. In 2009 they were claiming that before 2020 Germany, Turkey, Japan and Poland will activate, all of these throughout history marked themselves with the thirst of expansion, but as the result ended up a subject or a satellite of a victorious nation. Demonstration of Merkel’s ambitions, political insanity of Erdogan, new Japanese militarism (that recently permitted the use of Japanese Self-Defense force to operate out of the country), and, last, but not least, ultraright conservative Poland – this is all a sign that the forecast was correct. Geopolitics is back on the menu.

    Division of Ukraine

    Poland will of course be an antirussian and proamerican country. And this is why she probably won’t be too hostile to the antirussian Kievan regime. “Washington’s forepost” is a “forepost” for both countries. For now, this is so, however the nationalist regimes act out of their own logic. USA’s wishes will only be considered up to a point, and only until Polish interests are considered too. And a fundamental interest of all nationalists is a conquest of all historical “living space”. In the Polish case, this is Western Ukraine. Just a few years ago most analytics couldn’t even guess that something like this could become a reality. Maidan and its consequences weren’t foreseen either.

    More to that, the map of a possible Ukrainian divide the Polish media demonstrated over a year ago. This is, of course, not the Sovinformburo (Soviet Informational Buerau, Soviet Union’s mass media organisation), we cannot take everything the Polish media says as an outright truth, but still, it is the sign of true intentions of the Polish government and Polish peoples’ attitudes. According to Polish nationalists, Poland must consume Lviv, Volyn, Ivano-Frankovsk, Ternopol, Rovnensk cities and their districts (oblasts). This isn’t surprising, consingering that Lviv is really a Polish city ethnically, that was given to the USSR in 1939 as per Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. And although the Polish community has thinned out over the decades, the historical memory, especially of Polish-Ukrainian War of 1918-1919, has not dissapeared. This is why Poland was lobbying the creation of a monument to commemorate that war in Lviv “Lviv’s little eagles”. We can say the same about Volyn with it’s famous massacre.

    This is also confirmed by the fact that “a Polishman’s card” is being widely spread in those regions. And it was being done for a while now – this law was passed eight years ago. It eases the access through the Polish border and is easily exchanged for a residence permit, overall it Polifies its owner. It really is a Polish passport in its own sense. Because it is unable to give out EU member’s passport just to anyone, Warsaw acts in steps. Already 140 000 Ukrainians own this card. If their interests will suddenly be under threat, Poland wil have a moral right to intervene.

    Dreaming about the conquest of those lands, the Polish also thought about other lands and their historical ownership. Chernovitskaya oblast can be given to Romania. Zakarpatskaya – to Hungary. Russia will take back all of Novorossiya (that is all of Kharkhovskaya, Dnepropetrovskaya, Donetskaya, Luganskaya, Zaporozhskaya, Khersonskaya, Nikolaevskaya and Odesskaya oblasts, literalliy half of Ukraine) where the population is vastly ethnically Russian and Russian-speaking, and the economy is traditionally very dependent on Russian clientelle. And Ukraine itself will be left with nine central regions with Kiev as the capital: Zhitomirskaya, Khmelnitskaya, Vinnitskaya, Kievskaya, Chernigovskaya, Cherkasskaya, Kirovogradskaya, Sumskaya and Poltavskaya oblasts. These are historical lands of Kievan Rus. This way, Ukraine will keep all its territories, except those that were gifted to Ukraine the so-much hated in Ukrainian nationalist circles Russian Czars and Soviet leaders.

    Such turn of events would be favourable for Russia not only because of Novorossian salvation, but also because of localisation of the insane Ukrainian nationalism in set boundaries. Even the rather ruthless Soviet government that was standing for internationalism in it’s good form couldn’t eradicate it, now, after twenty five years of “independence”, it, while fully stripped of statehood, is still dangerous as ever. If a small Ukrainian country will be created, in it’s natural borders, the lovers of Mova and Vyshivanka will be able to practice their fetishes without any harm to their neighbours, rightfully proud to belong to a Ukrainian nation, and, if they will pull it off, Europe.

    The conditions to realise such a scenario or just about right. Nationalist turn in Poland is key. Through making a deal with Warsaw (or may be bypassing it, and talking as equals with the U.S. straight away, to save time), exciting Romanian and Hungarian (and may be even Slovakian and Belorussian) appetites, Russia could solve the Ukrainian crysis for good and for safety of all, including the Ukrainians themselves. But first and foremost for the good and safety of the Russian population of Novorossiya.

    More on Victoria Nuland`s "Rudolph Hess moment":

    Nuland meets Surkov to warn about imminent NATO attack by Scott

    The Saker January 20, 2016

    Since Maidan in Kiev two years ago, American life has become a reality show from the Discovery channel. Every day Americans are discovering something new. For example, this January they discovered that the US stock market is full of hot air, and that the world has turned nervous and angry. Also they have discovered that they have bolshoy (big) problem getting around the Persian Gulf. Which has been, if you think like a true American, their backyard. You see, if you think like an American, the entire world is your backyard and your outhouse.

    Remember how in spring 2014, the NATO-backed junta started hunting the Russians in Ukraine, and how people were found hanged on the trees because they were Russian? Remember, how the junta’s tanks moved against civilians in Donbass and people were trying to stop tanks with their bare hands? Russians had called for Europe to stop the spread of fascism in Ukraine. European politicians and its media furiously denied the allegations, and to prove the absence of fascism in Ukraine, massacred hundreds of the Russians in Odessa and Mariupol. It was highly publicized as the heroic fight against “Russian aggression.” Remember?

    Among the people who were burned in the Labor Union building in a beautiful port of Odessa were a local poet, a pregnant woman, several children and a teen student of Odessa University, whose mother, a professor of the same university was trying, to no avail, to save him in the midst of murderous crowd bused from Kiev and the Western parts of Ukraine.

    Back then Russia promised to take revenge and to turn the life of the masters of our universe, yankees*, into a living hell.
    *[According to the Urban Dictionary, “yanky”: American wind sack, worst type of Human on the planet, lives with head inserted completely up his own rectum, there all very stupid…]

    We are not psychotic murderers like you, Russia said to the West. We won’t kill your women and children. We will just put the end to your life on this planet as you know it. After we are done, no one, including your Founding Fathers, will be able to recognize you. The West ignored this promise, because the West never listens to what Russians have to say.

    On Friday January 15th, 2016 less than 24 hours after the meeting between Sergey Lavrov and John Kerry in Zurich on January 20, 2016 was announced, and just a day before the sanctions on Iran were scheduled to be lifted, a plane carrying Victoria Nuland, an Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, took a sudden turn on its way from Vilnius to Berlin and landed on a Russian airbase near Kaliningrad. Earlier Nuland out of blue called Kremlin and urgently demanded that president Putin meet with her personally. Putin refused to see her, but sent his “influential” assistant Surkov to see what she wanted.

    Surkov had arrived at Kaliningrad on Thursday January 14th. Nuland’s plane landed on the military base near Kaliningrad on Friday January 15th. Surkov and Nuland had a four hour talk behind closed doors. No one knows what exactly they talked about. The officially released version states that they talked about the implementation of the Minsk II agreement, the changes in Ukraine’s constitution, and the upcoming elections in Donetsk and Lugansk People’s republics.

    Unofficial versions vary.

    It’s being reported by some experts from the French AgoraVox who sincerely think that Nuland came to “prevent an inevitable NATO strike on Russia,” and that she came in attempt to “prevent world war.”

    According to the witnesses of Nuland’s arrival, she was in and “extremely agitated” state of mind. She was repeating over and over: “War is coming! War is at our gates!” She was also heard saying that Russia “has not fulfilled its promises,” and now “everybody is going to pay for this.”
    Also being reported that she has been very agitated recently because Barack Obama is “cleaning” the White House and that she herself might be on a chopping block.

    The same day, Friday January 15th at 16:20PM Putin held an emergency briefing session with permanent members of the Security Council in his Novo-Ogaryovo residence.

    Taking part in the meeting were Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, Speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko, Speaker of the State Duma Sergei Naryshkin, Secretary of the Security Council Nikolai Patrushev, Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu, Director of the Federal Security Service Alexander Bortnikov, Director of the Foreign Intelligence Service Mikhail Fradkov, Deputy Secretary of the Security Council Rashid Nurgaliyev, and permanent member of the Security Council Boris Gryzlov.

    The agenda covered unspecified current domestic and international matters.

    And what? And nothing…

    What had propelled Vikki Nuland, a Washington unelected apparatchik, whose life long efforts are universally understood as being directed towards the destruction of Russia, what propelled her to rush to warn Russia about the alleged imminent NATO strike? Shouldn’t she keep her mouth shut until the happy day of the NATO nukes taking a flight into the country that Nuland hates with so much vigor?

    To find an answer to this question we have to go way way back.

    On Tuesday January 12th, 2016 CNN first reported Jane Psaki’s announcement about “Iran holding 10 US sailors.”

    The reasons for the US marines to enter tightly guarded waters around Iran’s military base on the Farsi Island were confusingly reported as follows: ” they drifted into Iranian waters, they had veered off course before one of the boats experienced a mechanical breakdown, the Navy lost communication with the boats.”

    Two boats with marines were released back into the wild after approximately 15 hours. It said “a post-recovery inventory of the boats found that all weapons, ammunition and communications gear was accounted for, minus two SIM cards apparently removed from two hand-held satellite phones.”

    Some people now say that the boats were on a suicide mission, willingly or unwillingly. There are credible reports of an Israeli submarine positioned nearby that was allegedly ready to sink the vessels while in Iranian waters, as a prerequisite for a political fury of sanctions and armed whatnots against Iran over an “attack on the US vessels.”

    Had the marines understood what their fate might be we don’t know. However, the Iranians say that the US marines cried while being detained, that’s how scared they were, until they were told that they won’t be killed, tortured, or imprisoned, as they knew the US would have done to Iranians if the situation was somehow reversed.

    Somebody must had warned Iranians about this false flag attack. Could it be someone from the US Navy? From NATO? Just like the American diplomat working in Moscow warned about the plot to kill the President of Russia in March 2015. According to the plan Putin was supposed to be killed on a helicopter. Remember, The Economist magazine’s “mysterious” cover for 2015? Putin in black and white and, wearing sunglasses and an orange helicopter in front of him? Orange as in “orange revolution.” Because, as we all know, they are all geniuses over there, and we are just country pumpkins. That was it. Fifth columnists, NGO grant eaters, and other liberal rats were running around the Kremlin with cameras because they were told to watch service helicopters with a promise that something big was about to happen.



    An American diplomat reported this plan to the Russia’s authorities and the plan was foiled. Rumor has it, the guy moved to Crimea and got baptized in the Russian Orthodox Church. It’s a beautiful ceremony, I must admit, and to experience it is worth saving the life of a president.

    It looks like people everywhere are very alert to the possibility of the psychotic 1% starting a mass slaughter across the globe, and try to fight these plans with everything they’ve got; career, freedom and life notwithstanding.

    Upon learning of a plan to use two swift boats as a bait, and to turn the Persian Gulf into a “pearl harbor,” the Russia’s Air Forces, who just happened to be in the neighborhood apparently used their mysterious capacity to turn off the US swift boats’ systems, and allegedly, the Israeli submarine’ systems, also. Boats became deaf, blind and motionless. Exactly like in November 2014in the Black Sea, the Russian Sukhoi Su -24 with the newest jamming complex paralyzed the most modern American combat management system “Aegis” installed on the destroyer “USS Donald Cook.”

    CNN showed this humiliation ( Persian Gulf, not the Black sea one)



    As someone rightfully noted, “You haven’t lived until you’re a 22 year old ensign a few months out of NROTC, leading 7 sailors who are all under 21 and 2 chiefs who are about 30 years old. Your small boat breaks in the middle of the Persian Gulf and you can’t see the ship and the radio is broken. And not only that, half the political establishment of your country is hoping to Christ you become a martyr.”

    Now, can we understand why the US marines were crying?

    And most importantly, we might know what exactly Surkov told to Nuland when she blackmailed him by an “imminent NATO strike.” Known for being as politically correct, subtle and calculating as a guided missile, Surkov could, for all we know, even have used the CNN footage to illustrate his points.

    Well, from the Black Sea to island Farci, the US marines have been crying more and more since 2014 when the USS Cook was blinded, deafened and disabled by Russia’s SU. Will Washington ever see their tears and bring them home? Meanwhile, the US military gradually learn that urinating on dead Muslims is not nearly as exhilarating as getting down on your knees in front of alive ones.

    20 Dead, 200 Hospitalized After Reports US Lab "Leaks" Deadly Virus In Ukraine

    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 01/25/2016 09:51 -0500

    Amid the so-called "ceasefire" in Ukraine, yet ongoing shelling in many regions, the Donbass news agency reports that more than 20 Ukrainian solders have died and over 200 soldiers are hospitalized after an apparent leak of a deadly virus called "California Flu" from a US lab near the city of Kharkov.

    As Donbass News International reports,
    More than 20 Ukrainian soldiers have died and over 200 soldiers are hospitalized in a short period of time because of new and deadly virus, which is immune to all medicines. Donetsk People's Republic intelligence has reported that Californian Flu is leaked from the same place where research of this virus has been carried out.

    The laboratory is located near the city of Kharkov and its base for US military experts.

    Information from threatening epidemic is announced by Vice-Commander of Donetsk Army, Eduard Basurin.
    Leak of deadly virus in Ukrainian side was published first time on 12.1.2016:
    Quote "According to the medical personnel of the AFU units (Ukrainian troops) there were recorded mass diseases among the Ukrainian military personnel in the field. Physicians recorded the unknown virus as a result of which the infected get the high fever which cannot be subdues by any medicines, and in two days there comes the fatal outcome. Thus far from the virus there have died more than twenty servicemen, what is carefully shielded by the commandment of the AFU from the publicity", said Basurin in daily MoD situation report.
    Outbreak of deadly virus continues and Friday 22.1.2016 Vice-Commander told new information from epidemic:
    Quote "We keep registering new facts of growing the epidemics of acute respiratory infections among the Ukrainian military.

    Just since the beginning of this week more than 200 Ukrainian military have been taken to civil and military hospitals of Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk. It is important to repeat that the DPR intelligence previously reported the research being carried out in a private laboratory in the locality Shelkostantsiya, 30 km away from the city of Kharkov, and involving US military experts. According to our information, it is there where the deadly Californian flu strain leaked from," Basurin said.
    It appears it is not just military that is affected, as Radio Free Europe reports a flu epidemic is sweeping through the eastern Ukrainian city of Kramatorsk -- and the conflict smoldering nearby is making the situation even worse. Doctors are unable to identify the exact strain of the virus, because the laboratory they need is across the front lines in separatist-controlled Donetsk

    I am now inclined to believe that all the media demonization of Putin and Russia was exactly for that purpose:

    Not About Security: Pentagon Spending in Europe Lines Washington's Pockets


    © Sputnik/ David B. Gleason

    The Obama administration's plan to quadruple US military spending in Europe "has nothing to do with defending or protecting the United States," a defense policy expert told Radio Sputnik’s Brian Becker.

    The Pentagon this week announced that it plans to spend $3.4 billion in Europe next year, up from $789 million in the current budget. While several countries in the region expressed support, some firmly oppose the increased US military presence.

    ​Daniel McAdams, of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Security, told Radio Sputnik's "Loud & Clear" that the Obama administration is using a "non-existent" threat from Russia as a pretext to increase defense spending.

    "The US has been hyping up this new threat from Russia ever since it fomented the coup in Ukraine. I mean, you couldn't ask for a better excuse for the US to amp up its military spending," he said.

    McAdams called Europe a "relatively wealthy continent" that can "certainly rely on itself for its defense needs."

    "If you look at the US, where you have people without health care, you have Obamacare costs rising, you have crumbling infrastructure – yet Americans now are being forced to pay to take care of relatively wealthy Europeans from a non-existent Russian threat."

    McAdams labeled US military spending as "welfare for the rich," saying it "has nothing to do defending or protecting the United States."

    "It's all about keeping the think tanks, the defense contractors, and everyone around the beltway extremely wealthy and powerful, and popping a flag in the hand of the rest of the country and telling them the lie that all this money that's being stolen from them is to keep them safe." he said.

    "Well they're not any safer; they're far less safe."

    Euromaidan unmasked: Europe shocked by the bitter truth on Ukraine

    Wed, Feb 3, 2016
    Anti-Human Rights, Phenomenon of Terrorism, Ukraine

    By ORIENTAL REVIEW

    The hard-hitting documentary by Paul Moreira “Ukraine, les masques de la révolution” [Ukraine: Masks of the Revolution], released on Monday night by Canal+, created a turmoil both in Ukraine and France well before the premiere. On Sunday the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry reported in Facebook that their Ambassador in France had sent an outraged letter to Canal+ where he condemned the documentary as a “a pamphlet at the height of the worst disinformation traditions” “using primitive methods of journalistic manipulation, including the handling of comments of respondents, distorted in translation and facts and purely fabricated images“. The same day Le Monde doubled the pressure on Canal+. Paul Moreira has calmly and respectfully responded to his critics by a detailed post translated into English here. To the credit of Canal Plus’ management, the documentary was screened in time:

    (the English subtitles are available)


    Please watch it attentively. And let’s try to understand why it has infuriated so much the official Kiev.

    To be fair, the masterpiece did not reveal anything new. So far there were a lot of separate investigations by international organizations, NGOs, concerned individuals etc on different aspects of the “Revolution of Dignity“: who actually killed theheavenly hundred, what happened in Odessa in May 2014, what is going on in the zone of “anti-terrorist operation” in the South-East of Ukraine, where are the “Russian troops” and where are the Western mercenaries there… But most of them were successfully ignored by the mainstream Western media, stick to their comfortable myths about Euromaidan.

    The principal danger of Paul Moreira heartbreaking 50-minutes long documentary is that it exposed all critically important lies and silenced facts about “Revolution of Dignity” and its agents in a concentrated form at the established French TV channel.

    Paul Moreira did not do anything but showed a simple and honest truth – there was no dignity in that “revolution”. There is no “free civilizational choice” and “independent and legitimate authorities” in today’s Ukraine. There are gangsters licensed to kill and rob, psychopaths and criminals in the “democratic parliament”, parallel Nazi-inspired army, foreign officials who manipulate the political process in a sovereign country, media under total nationalist control etc. His argumentation and picture are so evident, eloquent and bright that there is no reasonable way to refute them. Here is the cause of hysteria and calls to ban (which paradoxically has triggered unprecedented public attention to the movie far beyond France) – they understand that an open and fair discussion would lead further undesirable revelations against the interim rulers in Kiev.

    One more pleasant outcome of this story is that the rumors about clinical death of the independent journalism in the West are apparently somewhat exaggerated…

    Yemeni tribes call for mobilization against Saudi Arabia

    Fri Feb 5, 2016 12:54AM

    This screen grab shows Yemeni men of the Hamdan tribe rallying in favor of resistance against the Saudi war on the country in the north of the capital, Sana’a, on February 4, 2016.

    Yemeni tribes from across the country have called for mobilization against Saudi Arabia’s deadly war on the Arab world’s poorest nation, Press TV reports.

    Men of Hamdan, one of Yemen’s most powerful tribes, rallied to the north of the capital, Sana’a, vowing to provide support in the form of potential mobilization for the country’s fighters resisting the Saudi aggression.
    Quote “Tribesmen of Hamdan have marched in support of the popular resistance against the Saudi invasion and occupation of our country. Anyone who dares to invade our territories should know that Yemen has been and will always be the graveyard of invaders. As we trust Allah, we do not fear their internationally-banned weapons as victory is on our side,” said one demonstrator.
    Hundreds of tribesmen from the southern parts of the country held a gathering in the capital. The participants pledged union against what they described as a US-Israeli initiative targeting the country, which was being implemented by Saudi Arabia.


    This grab photo shows Yemeni tribesmen during an event in the capital, Sana’a, on February 4, 2016 to denounce the Saudi aggression against the country.“Yemenis from the north and the south are united against such US-Saudi project,” said a keynote speaker at the event.

    Yemen has been under military attacks by Saudi Arabia since late March last year in a bid to bring the country’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a Riyadh ally, back to power.

    Over 8,270 people, among them 2,236 children, have been killed and 16,015 others injured since the onset of the aggression. The strikes have also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories.

    A recent damning UN report verified that the aggressors have targeted civilians in Yemen, documenting 119 sorties that violated international humanitarian law.

    “We know that the United Arab Emirates also has an interest in keeping our port of Aden under its domination. They want terrorist organizations such as al-Qaeda and Daesh to gain power in Aden,” the speaker added.

    The Yemen-based al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has exploited the volatile conditions and the breakdown of security in Yemen since the beginning of the Saudi war to tighten its grip on parts of southeastern Yemen.

    The Daesh Takfiri terrorist group has also gained ground in and around Aden.

    Ansarullah fighters, along with allied army units, are fighting the Takfiri militants and countering the Saudi aggression against the war-torn country.

    I have not been posting on this thread much as there is to much info at the
    moment , but the psyop against Russia is well and truly on as the BBC aired an
    odd programme 11.30 pm last night on BBC 2. It was basically similar to
    the they put up a year or so before the 7/7 bombings.

    The ' Elites' have to tell us what they are planning before hand and hide it in plain
    sight. I have been seeing this for years and researchers have been pointing this out
    for decades. It has been ramping up more since Russia occupied Ukraine and
    intervened in Syria.

    Saudi Arabia Declares Its Ground Forces Ready to Invade Syria

    By David on 5th February 2016 War and Terror




    A Saudi military spokesman has confirmed that Riyadh is prepared to join any US-led ground
    operations to fight Daesh, also known as IS/Islamic State, in Syria, if such operations are
    approved by the coalition.

    “The kingdom is ready to participate in any ground operations that the coalition (against
    Islamic State) may agree to carry out in Syria,” Brigadier General Ahmed Asseri told
    al-Arabiya TV. Asseri is also the spokesman for the Saudi-led Arab coalition in Yemen.

    “If there was a consensus from the leadership of the coalition, the kingdom is willing to
    participate in these efforts because we believe that aerial operations are not the ideal
    solution and there must be a twin mix of aerial and ground operations,” Asseri added.’

    A Russian deputy has warned Saudi Arabia that any military ground operation in Syria without the Damascus government's consent amounts to a declaration of war.

    "Syria has to give official consent, to invite, otherwise it will be a war. The same applies to international law," Pavel Krasheninnikov, the head of the State Duma committee, told Interfax on Friday.

    Krasheninnikov said that by promising a ground operation in Syria Riyadh now "intends to send troops to the territory of a sovereign state essentially without declaring a war."

    Saudi Arabia on Thursday voiced readiness to participate in any ground operations in Syria if the US-led coalition allegedly targeting terrorists decides to start such operations.

    US State Department spokesman John Kirby also welcomed the Saudi decision.

    Saudi Arabia is a member of the so-called US-led coalition that has been conducting air raids against what are claimed to be the Daesh terrorists inside Syria without any authorization from the Syrian government or a UN mandate since September 2014.

    The US-led strikes have on many occasions targeted infrastructures and left many civilians dead.

    Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said during an interview in March 2015 that the US-led military campaign does not aim to “do away” with the terror group.

    Washington and its regional allies, including Turkey and Saudi Arabia, have been backing militants fighting against the Syrian government and people. Since the Syria conflict started in 2011, they have been providing military and financial aid to the militants who are accused of widespread war crimes and crimes against civilians.

    'US seeks broader war in Syria, encourages Saudi intervention'

    Press TV, Fri Feb 5, 2016 4:42PM


    The US has since 2011 wanted to deploy ground troops to Syria to secure its position there and vanquish the sovereign Assad government, says Dennis Etler.

    Since 2011 the United States has wanted to deploy ground troops to Syria to secure its position there and vanquish the sovereign government of President Bashar al-Assad. Now it is encouraging Saudi Arabia to deploy ground troops to Syria to accomplish its mission, an American political analyst says.

    Dennis Etler, a professor of Anthropology at Cabrillo College in Aptos, California, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Friday, after US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter welcomed Saudi Arabia’s offer of troop deployment to Syria.

    On Thursday, Carter welcomed the Saudi offer to participate in any ground operations in Syria, launched by a US-led coalition claiming to be fighting against Daesh terrorists in the Middle East.

    US seeks to replace Assad with a puppet
    “It is becoming clearer by the day that the superpower contention in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is becoming more and more acute. Since the emergence of ISIL a couple of years ago, armed, trained and funded by the US through its proxies, including Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Israel, the US has banked on Takfiri terrorists to serve as stormtroopers in its campaign to oust Syrian President Bashir al-Assad and replace him with a compliant US puppet,” Professor Etler said.

    “The so far successful military intervention by Russia, at the request of the Syrian government, into the ongoing civil war, has however turned the tide of battle in favor of the Syrian Arab Army and thrown a wild-card into the conflict that the US never anticipated,” he added.

    ISIL militants on the ropes in Syria
    Professor Etler said that with ISIL and other armed militants “on the ropes and Syrian forces advancing on rebel held positions in Aleppo, the US and its allies are desperate to salvage their position.”

    “As a result the US dropped certain conditions that had stymied the initiation of peace talks between the Syrian government and supposed unarmed opposition forces, in the hope that the US could achieve at the negotiation table what could not be achieved on the battlefield,” he stated.

    “The Syrian armed forces with Russian air support will however not surrender the initiative and allow the insurgents to reestablish their positions. The negotiation ploy thus seems to be a non-starter, at least from the US perspective,” he noted.

    What complicated US ‘mission’ in Syria
    Professor Etler said “the US has from the start of the conflict in Syria wanted to introduce ground forces to secure its position and vanquish the independent and sovereign Syrian government. This has been complicated by a number of factors. The most important has been war weariness on the part of the US people which resulted in promises of US military withdrawal from both Afghanistan and Iraq.”

    “The second factor has been the successful negotiations on lifting economic sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic of Iran. Iran's willingness to compromise and reach an agreement on its nuclear program forced the US to concede defeat and end its economic isolation of the Islamic Republic. Subsequent Russian and Chinese economic and political support for Iran has threatened to further isolate the US and its allies in the region,” he added.

    “Faced with the dilemma of seeing its influence in Middle East and North Africa begin to wane the US is resorting to its tried and true method of asserting control over a region that has begun to waiver, war. In order to do so however the US has to find a new rationale to intervene that will appease its critics at home and abroad. This is where US support for ISIL and other terrorist groups comes into play,” the analyst noted.

    Why US wants ground forces
    “By unleashing ISIL in Syria and Iraq, and facilitating its spread into Libya and elsewhere, the US established an excuse to re-engage in ground combat operations and enlist its allies in the fight as well. The hope is that the introduction of ground forces in both Syria and Libya will allow the US and its proxies to reassert their power and influence in order to consolidate their geo-political control of the region,” Professor Etler said.

    “Both Syria and Libya were off limits to direct US control, until they were destabilized and turned into failed states by US initiated and supported attempts at regime change, led in large measure by terrorist groups surreptitiously supported by Saudi Arabia, the Persian Gulf States, Turkey and Israel,” he stated.

    “The US strategy of supporting terrorist networks in MENA now seems to be paying dividends. It has allowed US Defense Secretary Ash Carter to welcome a Saudi offer to participate in ground operations in Syria by a US-led coalition, and Carter's openness to the introduction of US ground forces in Libya. Both developments are in keeping with the US strategy of promoting terrorism and endless war in the Middle East and North Africa to keep its adversaries at bay and maintain its hegemony over the region,” the academic concluded.

    Accordingly, Syria's ally is not wasting time to render those feet on the ground unnecessary:

    No More Games in Syria: Russian Airstrikes Pulverize 'Moderate' Rebels for 36 Straight Hours

    Russia conducts largest aerial campaign since the start of its participation in the Syrian conflict

    By Rudy Panko 6 hours ago


    The Su-34 in Latakia

    It's a bad time to be a "moderate" in Syria: Even the Washington Post is now reporting that Al-Nusra and other freedom-loving moderate groups are losing the war.

    As the SAA closes in on Aleppo, Russia is paving the way for a new offensive in northern Homs. And by "paving the way", we really mean "36 hours of continuous airstrikes":
    For 36 straight hours, the Russian Air Force has pulverized the Islamist rebel defenses in northern Homs, as the Syrian Arab Army’s 47th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division and the National Defense Forces (NDF) prepare to strike the imperative villages of Harbinifseh and Kisseen that are located along the Orontes River.

    According to a senior officer from the Syrian Arab Army, the Russian Air Force’s powerful airstrikes over northern Homs are part of the largest aerial campaign launched by the Russian Federation since the advent of their participation in the Syrian Conflict.

    Trusted western media outlets are already crying foul, accusing Russia and Assad of derailing peace talks.

    The reality is that the west and its Arab client states wanted terrorist groups to have a seat at the negotiating table, which was (rightfully) unacceptable to Moscow.

    It looks like Russia has found a more effective way of negotiating with Al-Nusra and Ahrar Al-Sham: Surrender or be turned to dust.
