U.S. Threatens China, Russia With Nuclear Missiles For Challenging Dollar Supremacy [VIDEO]

The United States is indicating that it would sooner go to war with the Far East than suffer the defeat of an intense currency war over the rising yuan. Billionaire George Soros warned of this exact scenario earlier this year, stating that economic disputes with China provided a ‘real risk’ of triggering a third world war.

America's new, more 'usable', nuclear bomb in Europe

The $8 billion upgrade to the US B61 nuclear bomb has been widely condemned as an awful lot of money to spend on an obsolete weapon. As an old fashioned ‘dumb’ bomb it has no role in US or NATO nuclear doctrine, but the upgrade has gone ahead anyway, in large part as a result of lobbying by the nuclear weapons laboratories.

FLASHBACK: Sleeping With the Devil: How U.S. and Saudi Backing of Al Qaeda Led to 9/11

A little disingenuous or CUDP on the blowback angle but I like the pics and the vids!

Preface: The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan – Lt. General William Odom – noted:

Because the United States itself has a long record of supporting terrorists and using terrorist tactics, the slogans of today’s war on terrorism merely makes the United States look hypocritical to the rest of the world.

Odom also said:

By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation.

The Disturbing Reason For The Navy’s Trident Missile Test

Truth be told, the Navy has tested this missile over a 150 times before with little fanfare. In fact, they did another test early Monday afternoon and nobody noticed. So what gives?

For now the Navy is playing dumb, and have claimed that they had no idea the test would create such a spectacular view. However, the spectacle seems awfully convenient given the current tensions between the US, Russia, and China. It’s also pretty convenient, given what Defense Secretary Ash Carter told the media a day before the launch.

Putin: US missile defense aimed at neutralizing Russia nukes, N. Korea & Iran just a cover

“References to Iran and North Korea nuclear threats are just a cover for the true purpose [of NATO missile defense]. That is to neutralize the potential of other nuclear states not the US or its allies – primarily Russia,” Putin said during a meeting in Sochi dedicated to national military development. “The US is attempting to achieve strategic military superiority, with all the consequences that entails.”

In response, the Russian leader promised Russia would take the “necessary measures to respond by strengthening its own missile defense.”

“And at the first stage we are also going to develop strike weapons that can penetrate any missile defense shield.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Actually, Russia already has. The entire US Ballistic missile defense system is based, as the name indicates, on an incoming ballistic threat, meaning a warhead that follows a predictable ballistic parabolic path. But Russia's latest generation MIRVs are maneuverable. They do not follow a predictable path. They bob and weave, dipsy-doodle, corkscrew, and that obsoletes the entire US ballistic missile defense doctrine.

As Yuan Rivals Dollar, U.S. Launches Ballistic Missiles Over West Coast: “Lit Up California”

The United States is apparently fuming over the recent blows to the dollar, as a strengthening yuan is rousing a heightened response. The world is now watching video from a stunning ballistic missile display over the U.S. West Coast that was timed with China’s latest currency announcement.

Carter says Russia, China potentially threaten global order

Defense Secretary Ash Carter on Saturday accused Russia of endangering world order, citing its incursions in Ukraine and loose talk about nuclear weapons, and said the U.S. defense establishment is searching for creative ways to deter Russian aggression and protect U.S. allies.

Are we in for another nuclear standoff with the Kremlin?

Given the resumption of the cold war with Russia, some variation on the scenario described above is not only entirely possible, it is nearly inevitable. The INF treaty signed by Ronald Reagan is in danger of falling apart at the seams as NATO moves its forces ever closer to the Russian border and the Russians respond in kind. The US-EU coup d’etat in Ukraine, Georgia’s imminent entry into NATO, the “upgrading” of US nuclear weapons in Germany, and the radical uptick in anti-Russian rhetoric by US military and political figures has returned us to a danger we thought ended with the implosion of the Soviet empire: the threat of nuclear war.

Mystery light over ocean was missile test

A mysterious light that streaked across San Diego’s night sky Saturday, visible as far away as Nevada and Arizona, was a Trident missile test-fired by the Navy.

Navy Strategic Systems Programs conducted the scheduled Trident II (D5) missile test flight at sea from the Kentucky, an Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine, in the Pacific Test Range off the coast of Southern California, a Navy spokesman said. ?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Needless to say the time of the test was deliberately chosen to make sure people saw the test, to generate headlines around the world, to send a message to Russia and China that the US is ready to go nuclear on anyone who defies the empire!

The Many Marvels of the Mysterious Mushroom

Until 1969, biologists thought mushrooms and other fungi were plants. They’re actually more closely related to animals, but with enough differences that they inhabit their own distinct classification.

This and more recent findings about these mysterious organisms illustrate how much we have yet to learn about the complexities of the natural world. New research reveals mushrooms can even help plants communicate, share nutrients, and defend themselves against disease and pests.

A Flashbang Video Production

I started to document protests in Seattle years ago. I've since moved outside the city, so I mostly see them on television and on the internet. It's been too depressing to watch everything disintegrate -- to see the same agitators at every protest -- recognizing every cop's face that I see -- watching everyone do the same failed techniques every time. It is my personal belief that nothing will begin to change until there is a military draft and mass financial ruin -- that is if we don't nuke ourselves.

Pentagon’s Former Russia 'Expert' Proves She Doesn’t Know Much About Russia

“We have to continue reassuring, but we have to do one better, we actually have to deter,” she told reporters at a Defense Writers’ Group breakfast on Wednesday, according to Breaking Defense.

"First of all, clearly, Russia is not the Soviet Union and they are not strong economically and they are brittle politically, but that doesn’t mean they’re not a danger."

According to Farkas, that “danger” refers to modern Russia’s brazen disregard for the horrors of nuclear war.

"In the Cold War…there was a healthy respect for the immense, horrific power of nuclear weapons and that was really the last resort," she said, adding that Russia currently follows a doctrine of "escalate to deescalate," which she finds "highly alarming."

How I Would Reaffirm Unbreakable Bond With Israel — and Benjamin Netanyahu

We have recently marked the 20th anniversary of the assassination of then Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, a good friend, a courageous warrior and a great statesman. This somber anniversary, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Washington on November 9, is an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bonds of friendship and unity between the people and governments of the United
States and Israel.

The alliance between our two nations transcends politics. It is and should always be a commitment that unites us, not a wedge that divides us.

Ever since President Truman waited only 11 minutes to recognize the new nation of Israel in 1948, Americans have believed that Israel is more than a country — it’s a dream nurtured for generations and made real by men and women who refused to bow to the toughest odds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation of this statement by 2016 Presidential Candidate Clinton:

"I will give Netanyahu everything he demands, and everything he wants, even though I understand that under the Symington Amendment, such aid is completely illegal, under American law, because Israel refuses to sign the NNPT, and allow its nuclear sites to be inspected.

I will completely ignore Israeli serial genocide against the Palestinian people, and consistently spew for the expected verbal vomit that "Israel has a right to defend itself" whenever its IDF kills the innocent.

I will completely ignore the reality that Israel is a nuclear-armed nation, with one of the finest standing armies in the world, while I continue to shovel American money and American weapons into it, which means that the 3 billion plus we give to Israel annually will not be available to rebuild American infrastructure, or encourage job growth in the US.

I will also declare war against any country Netanyahu demands me to make war against, because he feels that country is an "existential threat" to Israel.

So it will, again, be American kids who die and get maimed for life because Israel is pathologically, and geopolitically, utterly incapable of getting along with most of its neighbors.

So in conclusion, Israel could never have a more Israeli-centric President than I will be, even if I have to destroy the US to make that happen!!"

And Secretary Clinton, you are welcome for that translation!

Brutal fight at a Minneapolis McDonald's drive-thru window between staff and customer

You deserve a break today! A broken nose a broken hand.....!

"I was on my way home from Monday night curling league, I hadn't eaten much since lunch time, and I was driving by a McDonald's, so I thought I'd just swing in and pick up a BigMac while I listened to the end of MNF game on the radio.

At first I was annoyed the guy in front of me was taking so long, he seemed pretty upset to begin with, but it looked like when the McDonald's guy handed him his cash and change back he dropped some of the dude's change. That's when he got out of his car, spit on the drive through window and tried to punch the McDonald's and that's when I started recording."

This took place yesterday in Northeast Minneapolis.

Egypt is Flooding Gaza Border Tunnels With Seawater, Poisoning Water Supply

Egypt has been pumping salt water from the Mediterranean into Gaza's underground tunnels, which Cairo says have been used to smuggle weapons to Islamist insurgents in the Sinai desert.

But more than destroying the tunnels, the flooding is contaminating water supplies and threatening to wreck farmland and spread disease, Palestinian officials say.

"One cubic meter of seawater pollutes 40 cubic meters of underground water," said Tamer al-Sleibi, a water department director in Gaza.

He worries that the water could weaken the foundations of homes and spoil the land for agriculture. Additionally, as the water turns stagnant, mosquitoes and other disease carriers will breed.

MILPLEX: AFTER GIVING MILLIONS TO LAWMAKERS WHO CONTROL PENTAGON SPENDING, NORTHROP AWARDED $21 BILLION BOMBER CONTRACT

Northrop Grumman, one of the nation’s largest defense contractors, turned a million-dollar lobbying investment into a billion-dollar contract bonanza.

The weapons maker last week was announced as the winner of a $21.4 billion contract from the U.S. Air Force to build at least 21 stealth bombers.

The lobbying figure was compiled by the Center for Public Integrity, which examined five years’ worth of expenditures by Northrop Grumman. The investigation revealed the defense contractor contributed $4.6 million to the campaigns of 224 lawmakers since 2010, demonstrating a long-range lobbying strategy devised to win the contract to build Long Range Strike bombers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (absolute absence of) shock at this award.

I wonder what it feels like, as a corporate executive, to actually own Congressional representatives; it must truly be wonderful; the gift that keeps on giving!!

I wonder if these execs have pictures of their purchased Congressional reps at their homes, decorating their walls, like pictures of a prized pet.

But I will make a fearless set of predictions about these stealth bombers; they will be late, in terms of actual deployment; they will have staggering cost overruns; and they will not perform in the field as advertised.

But these are precisely the outcomes which can be expected of bought politicians who no longer represent the true cares and concerns of constituents they allegedly represent, but only those goals of the corporations which, overtly and covertly, fund their election cycles.

Republicans trust Trump on economy, nuclear weapons: Reuters/Ipsos poll

Donald Trump is the Republican candidate most trusted to manage the economy, deal with foreign leaders and serve as commander in chief, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll of Republicans conducted after the party's third debate.

No-Guerra No-NATO Peace Conference in Rome

A Tribute to the “No-Guerra No-NATO” and pro-Peace Demonstration in Rome on Monday 26 October 2015

We, the people of Europe have to stand up against NATO. We must not let go.

As we know by now, the Soviet threat was a farce the western people – mostly the people of the US and Europe – were made to believe by a massive and continuous propaganda campaign, a western propaganda of lies – not unlike today’s anti-Russia, anti-China supra-multi-billion dollars Zionist-Anglo-Saxon media misinformation.

Politics Extension of US-led War on Syria

If Washington and its allies were sincere about a political resolution to the conflict then why don’t they reaffirm their commitment to the Geneva Communique?

Russia’s military intervention in Syria is proving a decisive turning point in stabilizing the government of Bashar al-Assad, while racking up serious defeats against the sundry extremist mercenary groups. That is the assessment of US top military officer General Joseph F Dunford. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told the Senate Armed Services Committee this week:

«The balance of forces right now are in Assad’s advantage».

Russia warns of growing US-funded bio-weapons labs in region

A senior Russian security official has warned of a rising number of US-funded research facilities that produce biological weaponry in countries near Russia’s borders, describing the effort as “a real problem.”

Speaking after a Russian Security Council meeting, the head of the agency, Nikolay Patrushev, said that Washington pours “tens of billions of dollars” into bio-weapons laboratories that operate on the territories of the Commonwealth of [newly] Independent States (CIS) that were part of the former Soviet bloc and that now surround Russia, RT reported Saturday.

“There are also other problems, such as the production of military-oriented biological weapons and the very large funding allocated to this,” Patrushev added.

US Sending Special Forces to Aid ISIS in Syria

US forces who obey these illegal orders are giving aid and comfort to the enemies of America! Treason doth prosper when none dare call it treason. This is TREASON most foul!

Washington is desperate to find ways of countering Russia’s effective Middle East agenda - combining formidable military might against terrorism with trustworthy diplomacy, proving Moscow is a valued partner, polar opposite Washington, a rogue bully.

Obama’s pledge about no “American combat troops fighting on foreign soil” proved another of his many Big Lies.
US Special Forces will be deployed to northern areas - illegally without Damascus or Security Council authorization.

Unannounced greater numbers may join them. Their mission: aiding ISIS and other takfiri terrorists, putting them in harm’s way.

China Sea Blues: A Thing Not to Do

Fred on War with China.

It appears that Washington, ever a seething cauldron of bright ideas, is looking for a shooting war with China, or perhaps trying to make the Chinese kowtow and back down, the pretext being some rocks in the Pacific in which the United States cannot possibly have a vital national interest.

Years back I went aboard the USS Vincennes, CG-49, a Tico class Aegis boat, then the leading edge of naval technology.

The Navy has not been in a war for seventy years. It has sat off various shores and launched aircraft, but the fleet has not been engaged. Over decades of inaction, complacency sets in. Unfortunately, wars regularly turn out to be otherwise than expected. Further, the American military’s standard approach to a war is to underestimate the enemy (there is probably a manual on this).

Secrets of the Syrian War: October 2015

The greatest secrets: the West has no people on the ground in Syria to take over the liberated territories; the Russians still seek partnership, Erdogan has bitten more than he can chew, and ISIS is a phantom, after all.

Russians are enjoying their Syrian adventure. Twenty days after its start, their entry into the Syrian war has paid off and brought some dividends.

Putin has been very popular before the war, with 86% support in the ratings, and now his public support has gone through the roof.

The tide is turning against Zionist extremism

These changing perceptions are the result of the rise of alternative forms of media, which have broken through the mainstream media’s imbalanced and inaccurate portrayal of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

For decades, the one issue that has been the exception to the broadly progressive streak within American Judaism has been Israel. The Jewish state has received unchallenged support by most Jews despite its decades-long occupation of the West Bank and the pursuit of policies toward Palestinians that, were they practiced by any other country, would be overwhelmingly opposed by American Jews.

Netanyahu absolved Hitler of the final solution by placing the blame for the Holocaust on the Palestinians

Why is Netanyahu consistently attempting to displace blame for the Jewish genocide in Europe from the Germans onto the Palestinians? Of course, Netanyahu throughout his career has been determined to shatter the Palestinian national struggle. To discredit it, and to justify his campaign, his violent campaign against it. But with what’s happening in Jerusalem Netanyahu’s fanaticism has risen to the surface.

Arkadash also called on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to resign from his post as soon as it is proven that Ankara has supplied the terrorists in Syria with deadly Sarin gas.

How Neocons Destabilized Europe

Exclusive: The neocon prescription of endless “regime change” is spreading chaos across the Middle East and now into Europe, yet the neocons still control the mainstream U.S. narrative and thus have diagnosed the problem as not enough “regime change,” as Robert Parry reports.

The refugee chaos that is now pushing deep into Europe – dramatized by gut-wrenching photos of Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi whose body washed up on a beach in Turkey – started with the cavalier ambitions of American neocons and their liberal-interventionist sidekicks who planned to remake the Middle East and other parts of the world through “regime change.”

Instead of the promised wonders of “democracy promotion” and “human rights,” what these “anti-realists” have accomplished is to spread death, destruction and destabilization across the Middle East and parts of Africa and now into Ukraine and the heart of Europe. Yet, since these neocon forces still control the Official Narrative, their explanations get top billing – such as that there hasn’t been enough “regime change.”

NATO BLIND: Top Secret Russian Air Defence System Deployed in Syria

You are only as good as those you fight. The US military is great for gunning down innocent men,women and children all over the planet for their corporate and neocon masters.
They are absolutely no good for defending the USA from attack and are at this moment training to attack the American people. And they have now been caught not only giving aid and comfort to America's enemies,they the Pentagram creates Americas enemies out of whole cloth! Shameful!

Thierry Meyssan, a French journalist who has been based in Damascus for some years now, is reporting that Russia has deployed its most advanced, top secret air defence system in Syria, which has essentially “left NATO blind.”

While the West has been completely embarrassed by Russia’s swift and effective operation in Syria, it has now been utterly outclassed; so greatly that, as we shall hear below, even NATO Commanders are ‘worried’.

A Very Heavy Agenda Part 1 : A Catalyzing Event [Trailer] (Neocons exposed)

Post-9/11, the War on Terror had outlived its usefulness.
The minds behind the think tanks that drive America’s interventionist foreign policy decided that the U.S. needed a new enemy, so they chose an old one -- Russia.

Part 1: A Catalyzing Event 1hr 25mins

Cheney, Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld were ubiquitous in the news media as they took every available opportunity to market to America an aggressive preemptive war policy. But from where did their ideas originate? The answer is a tightly knit and eminently well placed group of neoconservative thought leaders, chief among them Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan. Part 1 begins in the panicked weeks after 9/11, as Kagan et al. seized upon the hysteria surrounding the anthrax letter attacks to further shape America’s perception of reality, planting the seeds for endless future military engagements. George W. Bush may have been understandably perceived as an idiot, but watching these wonks and academics drive the ideological engine for his administration belies a much more sophisticated strategy at play.

Israel one of the sponsors of JFK assassination: American scholar

Israel had a motive to kill Kennedy because the president was opposed to the regime's nuclear weapons program at Dimona which he believed could instigate a nuclear arms-race in the Middle East.

Kennedy encountered tensions with the Israelis regarding the production of nuclear materials in Dimona.

Israel resisted pressure by the Kennedy administration to open its nuclear facilities to International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspections and misled American scientists who visited Dimona in 1962.

There is no effective investigation. There will be none regarding today's attack either. This is not an attack against unity of our state and nation.

This is an attack by our nation against our people," he said.

The Six Most Disastrous Interventions of the 21st Century

by Gary Leupp
On October 2 President Barack Obama, alluding to Russia’s decision to launch air strikes in Syria, told reporters at the White House that for Russia to view the forces targeted “from the perspective they’re all terrorists [is] a recipe for disaster, and it’s one that I reject.”

1 Afghanistan

The first was the disaster of the invasion of Afghanistan beginning in October 2001. I’m not sure we should call it a “crime,” since the international coalition that invaded was authorized by a UN resolution, or a “mistake” since it was clearly the result of calculation.

Five Leaders Challenging Western Imperialism through Diplomacy, Persuasion,and Public Pressure: Pope Francis, Vladimir Putin, Xi, Jinping, Hassan Rouhani, and Jeremy Corbyn

These five protagonists of a new global agenda differ from past critics from the left both in the style and substance of their politics.

Western imperialism, in all of its manifestation, is being challenged by five political leaders, through diplomacy, moral persuasion and public pressure.

In recent time, Pope Francis, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn have raised fundamental questions concerning (1) war and peace in the Middle East and the Caucuses; (2) climate change and the destruction of the environment; (3) economic sanctions, military threats and confrontation; and (4) growing inequalities of class, gender and race.

OPEN LETTER TO THE VICE-CHANCELLOR OF VICTORIA UNIVERSITY

Dear Vice-Chancellor Grant,

I wish to pay my respects to the Victoria University academics who protested the mendacious talk last week by Israeli soldiers, Raphael Wein and Naftali Gross, who had taken part in the 2014 monstrous Israeli war crime, Operation Protective Edge against Palestinian families sealed in by land, sea and air.

Obama Accuses Russia of Going After America’s “Good Guy Terrorists”

Moscow is supporting both countries (Syria and Iraq) in their proxy war against the ISIL which is supported by the US and its allies.

Until recently, the ISIS was known as Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI). In 2014, it was renamed the Islamic State (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant).

Russia is Now Involved in the War on Terrorism

A major turning point in the dynamics of the Syria-Iraq war is unfolding. Russia is now directly involved in the counter-terrorism campaign in coordination with the Syrian and Iraqi governments.

As an American I am ashamed at what horrible country this has become!

A hospital in the Afghan city of Kunduz has been hit and partially destroyed in an overnight “aerial attack” that killed at least nine Medecins Sans Frontieres staff. NATO has admitted a US airstrike may have caused accidental “collateral damage.”

The Mind of Mr. Putin

Perhaps it is time to climb down off our ideological high horse and start respecting the vital interests of other sovereign nations, even as we protect and defend our own.

If America’s elites continue to assert their right to intervene in the internal affairs of nations, to make them conform to a U.S. ideal of what is a good society and legitimate government, then we are headed for endless conflict. And, one day, this will inevitably result in war, as more and more nations resist America’s moral imperialism.

Nations have a right to be themselves, Putin is saying.

Russia Bombs ISIS

The US Military by constant violations of their oath of office have become a totally discredited institution that is nothing more than an enforcer and collection agency for private banks and corporations.All Wars Are Bankers Wars,which makes the Joint Chiefs of Staff nothing more than Banker's Whores.
I am Disgusted and Ashamed!

After announcing it would conduct aerial operations in Syria, Russian warplanes struck Islamic State targets straightaway – in contrast to Washington’s campaign, attacking Syrian and Iraqi infrastructure targets, supporting its Islamic State foot soldiers on the ground.

Showdown at the UN Corral – Raimondo

If there was any doubt that Washington has learned absolutely nothing since George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq, then President Obama’s address to the United Nations has confirmed the world’s worst fears. It was an oration that combined the most egregious lies with the wooly-minded “idealism” that has been such a destructive force in world affairs since the days of Woodrow Wilson.

Question: Were these US-funded Good Guys (in Syria) always Bad Guys in an ill-fitting disguise?

FLASHBACK - M.I.T. report on Damascus gas attack say Assad could not have been responsible

Prior to the publication of the UN report, two other significant reports were made public. One was reported in the New York Times and the other a report by the Human Rights Watch. Both these reports presented details of a warhead that could have carried between 50 and 60 liters of sarin – an amount that could explain the high casualty figure above quoted by the US government. The UN report, which was issued some time after these reports, repeated their conclusions. From my careful study and analysis of all th ese reports, I found that the UN report included diagrams and photographs that were in the said reports without referencing them. There was st riking agreement between estimated and measured dimensions of the large warhead, which was merely a concept described in the New York Times article. It took center stage in the UN report. I describe in detail how I arrived at my conclusion.

Top US and Saudi Officials responsible for Chemical Weapons in Syria

FLASHBACK - The Red Line and the Rat Line

The full extent of US co-operation with Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar in assisting the rebel opposition in Syria has yet to come to light. The Obama administration has never publicly admitted to its role in creating what the CIA calls a ‘rat line’, a back channel highway into Syria. The rat line, authorised in early 2012, was used to funnel weapons and ammunition from Libya via southern Turkey and across the Syrian border to the opposition. Many of those in Syria who ultimately received the weapons were jihadists, some of them affiliated with al-Qaida. (The DNI spokesperson said: ‘The idea that the United States was providing weapons from Libya to anyone is false.’)

The Curse of American Exceptionalism

By Thomas DiLorenzo

October 1, 2015

Nothing seems to cause one of the neocon talking heads to fall into a rage more than discussing a politician or political candidate who “doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism!!” Sean Hannity seems especially unhinged under such circumstances. This is because “American exceptionalism” has long been the ideological underpinning of – and justification for –the American empire and all of its military adventures. As shills for the American military/industrial complex and the empire that it is forever expanding, Hannity, O’Reilly, Limbaugh, and all the rest are required by their masters to express outrage – outrage! – whenever anyone questions the propriety of American imperialism and empire building........

Neocon Jeffrey Feltman Visits Libya Brandishing The Dahiyeh Doctrine and “The New Realities”

The “Dahiyeh Doctrine”

Libyan civilians have learned a thing or two from three decades of Lebanon’s experience with Israel’s five wars against that Levant country. Indeed NATO is using the same bombing, media, political and diplomatic strategy in Libya that Israel employed most recently in Lebanon during its 33-day July, 2006 war.

This includes bombing of the Libyan civilian infrastructure in order to cripple normal life here and hopefully crush the growing national Resistance among Libyans to NATO’s 15,300 sorties to date, while teaching the people an overdue lesson for supporting the central government in the context of predictable “birth pangs of the new Libya.”

There will be no Third World War

On the other hand.......

The liberal hawks and the neo-conservatives have been unable to provoke the confrontation with Russia for which they were trained during the Cold War. Finally, the voice of reason has prevailed. While discrete negotiations are under way to seek an end to the crisis in Ukraine, Russia and China are preparing to convince the United States and their allies to participate in a global alliance against Islamic terrorism. After 5 years of tension, both the project for the seizure of power by the Muslim Brotherhood - the « Arab Spring » - and the proclamation of a Caliphate have failed. Peace is saved.

'Putin Has Just Demonstrated the Principle of the Flank'

We can no longer stand the state of the world.Vladimir Putin at the United Nations

Inside, outside, and at great distance from the United Nations on Manhattan's East Side today, it was obvious that Russian President Vladimir Putin is changing the strategic shape of world events, and has substantial support among Americans as well for a real international coalition to defeat terrorism.

He said that rapidly spreading terrorism, impoverishment, and loss of respect for life has been generated across the Mideast, North Africa and South Asia by regime change wars, or "wars for democracy," which are in violation of that UN Charter and of international law, and that this devastation would spread until it were stopped.

$2.7 billion later, Pentagon's defense airships have yet to get off the ground

Unknown to most Americans, the Pentagon has spent $2.7 billion developing a system of giant radar-equipped blimps to provide an early warning if the country were ever attacked with cruise missiles, drones or other low-flying weapons.

After nearly two decades of disappointment and delay, the system — known as JLENS — had a chance to prove its worth on April 15.

That day, a Florida postal worker flew a single-seat, rotary-wing aircraft into the heart of the nation’s capital to dramatize his demand for campaign finance reform.

JLENS is intended to spot just such a tree-skimming intruder, and two of the blimps were supposed to be standing sentry above the capital region. Yet 61-year-old Douglas Hughes flew undetected through 30 miles of highly restricted airspace before landing on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The financial culture in the military industrial complex is not about making products which actually work when they are needed in the field; it is only about making money.

And of course, companies like Raytheon, which is the corporate poster child for creating completely useless products guaranteed to fail, then reaping billions from them, are very, very generous, both overtly and covertly, to the Congressional representatives which funnel this kind of work their way.

What we need here is a law, stating that if a weapons product bought and paid for by US taxpayers does not perform as advertised on the first day of its introduction to military service, the president of the company manufacturing that useless product would wind up prosecuted, and potentially jailed (NOT in a Club Fed) for product failure.

That just MIGHT change the corporate military industrial complex' culture; sadly, of course, the passage of such a law will only happen when pigs fly.

The Russian and Chinese governments pay infinitely less for their weaponry than does the US government; but ultimately, what they get will perform when deployed; there is a tacit understanding about that between those governments and their weapons manufacturers.

Weapons manufacturers in the US and this government do not have that kind of understanding, and it may well hurt our US military very badly when weapons are deployed which will work; although as a Christian pacifist I condemn war, I do not want to see this kind of weapons failure happening to our military members, EVER.

Now We Have the Opportunity to Restore the Constitution

Lyndon LaRouche said yesterday that we must use the United Nations General Assembly to return the US to its Constitution. That is, we must use the kaleidoscopic changes—for the better—in the policies of, and relationships among nations, which were triggered by Vladimir Putin's surprise flanking move into Syria, to shut down Wall Street and throw Barack Obama out of office.

Then, under extreme pressure, Obama was forced today to agree to a Monday meeting with Russia's President Putin,— one which will be very risky for Obama, because Putin sees through him and holds all the cards.

But remember LaRouche's stress on the point that Obama will not just go quietly,— on the contrary, his impulse will be to start a war rather than admit that his time is finally up.

Nuclear TSUNAMI: ISIS wants to wipe hundreds of millions from face of the earth

In other News.....

ISLAMIC State is a ‘nuclear tsunami’ that wants to wipe hundreds of millions from the face of the earth in the biggest religious holocaust the world has ever seen.

The claim comes from a veteran German journalist who is the only reporter to have been allowed to operate as an ‘embed’ with ISIS and escape alive.

Jürgen Todenhöfer, 75, a former MP with Angela Merkel's CDU party, became a reporter in 2000 and has specialized in war reporting.

Kremlin promises ‘counter-steps’ in reply to US deploying nuclear weapons to Germany

The planned deployment of the latest US nuclear bombs at the Buchel Air Base in Germany would disrupt the strategic balance of forces in Europe and could force a reaction from Russia, President Vladimir Putin’s press secretary has stated.

“It may lead to the destruction of the strategic balance in Europe. Therefore it would definitely cause Russia to take corresponding counter-steps and counter-measures in order to restore the strategic balance and parity,” Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday.

“This is another step and unfortunately it is a very serious step towards increase of tensions on the European continent. Such actions cannot be described as a step towards stronger trust and greater stability,” the Russian official added.

The CSTO arrives in Iraq and Syria

by Thierry Meyssan

The intervention of the CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organisation) against terrorism in Iraq and Syria may be the beginning of a world order based on the cooperation and defence of civilian populations, or, on the contrary, a period of East-West confrontation in which the West openly supports terrorism. Contrary to popular belief, this military deployment is aimed less at defending Iraq and the Syrian Arab Republic than the members of the CSTO themselves. It is therefore not negotiable. The debates in the UNO General Assembly and Security Council on the 30th September will reveal the response of Washinton and its allies. In any case, nothing will ever be the same.

The phrase the “Samson Option” is used to describe Israel’s strategy of massive nuclear retaliation against “enemy” nations should its existence as a Jewish state be jeopardized through military attack. Israeli leaders created the term in the mid-1960s, inspired by the Biblical figure Samson, who destroyed a Philistine temple, killing himself and thousands of Philistine enemies.[1][2]

The Implosion of US Military Morale

WE are being set up for a major defeat and destruction!

By Jack D. Douglas

September 21, 2015

Col.David “Hack” Hackworth said decades ago that the Perfumed Princes of the Pentagon got control of the Army and other U.S. forces during the long Vietnam catastrophe, destroyed morale, lost the war, and kept moving up to the top to be the staff generals and admirals in the Pentagon. The scuttlebutt was always that they managed their way up by being ass-kissers.

I wonder what Hack would say about all the news these days about the Perfumed Princes at the top of the US military?

IAEA rejects proposal on oversight of Israeli nuclear facilities

“I explained that there was no place to hold a discussion of this kind as long as the main problem in the Middle East is Iran’s efforts to arm itself with nuclear weapons and its clear declarations regarding its intention to destroy the State of Israel,” Netanyahu said in a statement.

Netanyahu thanked the countries that supported Israel, “especially the US, Australia and Canada.” He also thanked the EU for voting as a single bloc against the resolution. . .

. . . Ze’ev Snir, the director-general of Israel’s Atomic Energy Committee, addressed the IAEA’s annual meeting in Geneva on Wednesday and said the move was an attempt to single out Israel, and that if it passed it would “hurt the credibility of the IAEA by politicizing the organization and reducing its valuable resources.”

FLASHBACK:Russia and the changing world

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin contributed the following article to Moskovskiye Novosti

In my previous articles I have discussed some of the key foreign challenges that Russia now faces. This subject deserves more detailed discussion and not only because foreign policy is an integral part of any government strategy. External challenges and the changing world around us are forcing us to make decisions that have implications for our economy, our culture, and our budgetary and investment planning.......

The revolting slaughter of Muammar Gaddafi - not just medieval but primeval - was the manifestation of these actions.

No one should be allowed to employ the Libyan scenario in Syria.
