“Mohammed Sidique Khan: Are you really a terrorist eh?

Omar Khyam: No I’m not a terrorist but they are working through us.”

An Historical Context – Within the War on Terror.

On July 7th , 2005 the public transport system in London was struck by a number of explosions that killed 56 people and wounded hundreds more causing the largest single loss of life in Britain since World War 2.

The July 7th bombings formed and continue to form a key part of the War on Terror narrative. Of the dozens, indeed hundreds of mass casualty attacks attributed to the “al Qaeda” synthetic terror outfit in the first decade of the 21st century the London attacks along with the 911 events, the Bali bombings, the Madrid attacks of 2004 and the Mumbai massacre of 2008 stand out as the “iconic” attacks that are still utilised to promote the War on Terror narrative of foreign wars and the domestic police state  whilst many other massacres such as the attack in Djerba, Tunisia in March 2002, and the series of blasts that struck Istanbul in late 2003 have been largely forgotten.

Historian Webster Tarpley in his 2004 work “911 Synthetic Terror Made in the USA”” provides an analysis of the phenomenon of modern terrorism that explains why all events of world changing political violence should be subjected to intense scrutiny.

“We start from the strong presumption that terrorism is therefore an activity which is controlled by a faction of government, probably acting under the influence of financier factions which are generally the ultimate source of authority in the globalized universe after 1991. Terrorism cannot be described as a spontaneous sociological phenomenon, as the old saying goes – it must rather be seen as a phenomenon developed by sociologists, along with psychologists, profilers, psychiatrists, case officers, handlers, and cut-outs. For every terrorist and terrorist group in the field, an extensive bureaucratic support system is necessary. Spontaneous combustion is the last thing that should be expected.”

9/11 SYNTHETIC TERRORISM MADE IN USA page 57.

The next time you hear the British Prime Minister David Cameron refer to the supposed threat from non-violent extremists, a farcical and meaningless category, it might be worth asking this question.

If everything about the 7/7 attacks is as the British Government have claimed ior the past decade, where do these sinister objections to critical thought come from and what is their basis?

If there was no deception or collusion then they should look forward to the prospect of endlessly being correct and making absolute fools of all who have claimed otherwise.

But they cannot because there is no basis for their narrative as the numerous Official Reports and addendum’s make painfully clear.

How reassuring to open the ISC account and be greeted with news about the weather

“2. “7 July began unsettled, with heavy showers in places. The early morning rush in London started as normal.”

The reader continues to find that the report provides no specific details about the actual attacks. The timing, placement, composition of the bombs. Nothing beyond the broad speculative claim and the circular argument that the designated offenders must have conducted the attack because it happened and we said so.

The high degree of success achieved by the British Establishment appears to have rendered them so acutely out of touch and completely unable to tell quality lies due to their complete lack of respect for their intended audience.whom they clearly regard with unvarnished contempt.

The aftermath in Omagh, the Police Ombudsman found that
The aftermath in Omagh, the Police Ombudsman found that “intelligence had been withheld” but “nothing could have been done to prevent the attack.” This appears to be a nonsensical claim.

An Historical Context. Within modern British and  history.

There is an obvious connection between the July 7th attacks and the other al Qaeda “spectaculars” the attack is also part of a pattern of manufactured terror in the UK that has been underway for at least half a centur.

While there are many parallels between the London attacks and  the 911, Madrid and other attacks, there are also close parallels with previous major atrocities in Britain including the Birmingham Pub bombings of 1974 and the Omagh blast in Ireland in 1998.

An uncomfortable truth lurks in the background of all these events. The Security Services are naturally enough self interested. They want a big budget and large staff the same as any other Government agency. The only difference is that their institutional wellbeing depends on the preponderance of fear. They are quite simply in the business of fear.

The budget for MI5, GCHQ and MI6 combined stands at just under 2 billion pounds per annum. The Guardian estimates that MI5 share f the 1.92 billion pound combined intelligence budget at 900 million pounds. The budget had been expected to decline after the 2012 Olympics but happily Jihad John and the other synthetic IS monsters sorted that out nicely and anticipated budget cuts were averted.

The Official Story of 7/7.
The official story of the 7/7 bombings comprises the Home Office narrative, two Intelligence and Security Committee reports and the Coroner’s Inquest. These accounts differ on many details but there is a consensus amongst them that 3 British Muslims collected bombs from a Leeds flat, drove to Luton where they met their Jamaican British comrade and caught a train to London where they dispersed and conducted suicide bomb attacks against four civilian targets on the morning of July 7th, 2005.
The attacks we are told targeted 3 trains almost simultaneously at around 8.50am followed by an attack on a Double Decker bus almost an hour later at 9.47am.

Because the witness and media accounts of the event are deeply contradictory and incoherent and the event took place outside the public view and the evidence has been tightly controlled by the British Government the 7/7 case is a complex and difficult and although there are several facts that logically render the account of the event provided by the British Government null and void, this case does not provide the simple seven second smoking gun that the destruction of WTC 7 provides in the 911 case.

It is necessary therefore to expose the truth by interrogating the Official story and analysing it critically rather than pointing at any one piece of visual evidence such as the WTC demolitions.

The best way to describe the Home Office narrative and the reports of the ISC is insulting. These narratives quite simply fail to present evidence in support of numerous key assertions. It is not a serious attempt to investigate the incident at all.

The ISC Reports based on information provided to the Intelligence and Security Committee from MI5 contain numerous untruths regarding knowledge of the identity of Mohammed Sidique Khan with MI5 having delivered three different, contradictory and provably untrue accounts of their knowledge of Khan.

Along with a whole host of “Keystone Cops” explanations for their failure t identify Khan when he had been on their radar and under surveillance sporadically for several years. The West Yorkshire Police field the brunt of the blame predictably.

The very terms of the Coroner’s Inquest speak volumes. Despite the clear stipulation that the Coroner should investigate the cause of death in all cases of sudden and violent death in Britain, the cause of death of the four bombers was outside the Coroner’s purview for unknown reasons.

In addition, none of the victims were subjected to an internal post mortem examination to help determine the exact cause of death despite this being standard procedure.

Lifting the veil.

It remains unclear how many bombs were detonated, the composition of the devices, the means of detonation, the nature of the events remains a startling mystery in many ways with many strange indications such as that there may have been incidents on more than four trains and the extremely strange multiple eyewitness accounts that described a sensation they described as electrocution at the time of the detonations.

“You know that kind of pppvvvvvv type of sound, but a
million times more powerful.’8 He also told the Cambridge Evening
News that, ‘It was like a huge electricity surge which knocked us out and
burst our eardrums. I can still hear that sound now.’9 For her part,
Crystal Main told the Mirror that, ‘all of a sudden I felt as if I was having
a fit and couldn’t control myself. I slipped to the side. It was as if I had
been electrocuted and thousands of volts were going through me.”

Secker-. Secrets, Spies and 7/7 page’36.

There are  two lines of inquiry that make it clear that there is no possibility that the British Government account of these events was honest and complete.

The first is the background of the members of the alleged terror cell and their connections.

The second is the Official narrative of the day of the attacks.

Mohammed Sidique Khan- Protected British Intel Asset Surrounded by Agents..

The alleged ringleader of the group was a well liked 30-year-old man from Leeds named Mohammed Sidique Khan, (whose identity cards were remarkably found at three separate attack sites in the aftermath of the July 7th attacks) Mohammed Sidique Khan had been involved with militants in the UK and Pakistan for years. He was captured on surveillance attending a half-baked training camp in rural Britain in 2001, travelled twice to Pakistan and was observed in contact with numerous targeted militants between 2001 and 2005.

All of his key contacts, his mentors and trainers appear to have been operating on behalf of Western Intelligence Agencies with one US agent in a prominent role among a host of British assets and agents.
The milieu that Khan existed within for several years was littered with agents, informers and provocateurs.

Martin McDaid, claimed to ne former SBS, it happened in Ireland....
Martin McDaid radical convert, claimed to be former SBS, probable infiltrator,  it happened in Ireland….

Martin McDaid

There was the fellow named Martin McDaid, he was a supposed Muslim convert who claimed to be a former member of the elite British Special Forces unit the SBS and ran a militant bookshop in Leeds.. McDaid was the organiser and trainer at the British training camp. McDaid acted as a provocateur, a radicaliser. McDaid was never arrested or prosecuted or otherwise detained and has now disappeared. It is worth noting that a very senior IRA militant and British double agent named John Joe Magee was also a former SBS member. McDaid’s apparent role as”protected provocateur” was repeated with other key militants in the area at the time including a man named  Mohammed Quayyum Khan.

If McDaid, Q and Babar were spies acting as part of a complex
covert operation or set of operations then it would be important to
obscure their connections to the four people who were designated to
become ‘suicide bombers’. Every time the alleged bombers did
something that could later be used to make them look like suicide
bombers, they did it through or via one of the probable spies. Every
time, the connections between the four and the probable spy or spies
was obscured by security service intelligence failures

Mohammed Junaid Babar US Government Agent and the Trainer..

Mohammed Junaid Babar was a US citizen from a Pakistani background who travelled to Pakistan soon after 911 and began mouthing off about wanting to kill Americans. It seems clear that Babar was sent to Pakistan by a US agency in order to deliver war propaganda to the American people and was later deployed as an informant.

“By November 2001 he had arrived in Pakistan and he gave two interviews
to Western journalists proclaiming that, ‘When the American troops
enter, we will kill them in Afghanistan. There is no negotiation… I will kill
every American that I see in Afghanistan and while I am in Pakistan, if I
see them in Pakistan, I will kill every American soldier I can in
Pakistan.”

Secker- Secrets, Spies and 7/7 Page.187.

Babar ran a supposed terrorist training camp in the Pakistan town of Malakand. This was the camp that alleged leader of the 7/7 cell Mohammed Siddique Khan attended during his 2003 visit to Pakistan.
In 2004 Mohammed Junaid Babar “came in from the cold” returned to the US where he was taken into custody and debriefed. The US government has stated that Babar was an US intelligence asset prior to his arrest but not the specific date he began working for them.

Babar’s sentencing hearing was told that Babar “worked for the US Government prior to his arrest.”
In custody in the US Babar described all his militant contacts and the US government tried to match the names Babar described with specific individuals.
Babar told the Americans about the young British men he encountered in the Malakand camp. He described Mohammed Sidique Khan, as a man he knew as “Sidique”  so the US contacted British Intelligence to see if they could help Babar identify Mohammed Sidique Khan.

The manner of the response from British Intelligence to this request represents one of the single most damning facts in this case and proves unmistakably that MI5 colluded in order to protect Khan’s identity from the US.

MI5 Concealed Khan and Tanweer from the US Government in March 2005.

It can be stated with a high degree of confidence that Mohammed Sidique Khan was some type of British Intelligence operative on the basis of multiple pieces of evidence but the most damning fact in relation to Khan’s status is probably the time in March 2005 when British Intelligence responded to an FBI request for information about the men who had been in the Malakand camp including a man named “Sidique” and MI5 CROPPED KHAN’S FACE from a photo they sent to the F.B.I along with butchering the image of Shehzad Tanweer also.

British intelligence had taken quite a good photograph featuring two members of the alleged 77 cell, Khan and Shehzhad Tanweer, covertly taken of the two at a roadside service centre in 2003.
So in March 2005, in the months prior to the London attacks, the US was interested in discovering “Sidique’s” specific identity, and asked the Brits for help in this matter and the people at MI5 sent the Americans a cropped black and white version of the original photograph.

This is a story from the mainstream media, the Mail and the Guardian. These facts only emerged many years after the events, as part of the Coroner’s Inquest into the deaths of the 52 “non bomber” victims of the attacks released in 2011..

The cropped image of Khan, was so poor that it
was not even shown to Babar by the FBI. The image of Tanweer was
almost as bad, and it is unsurprising that Babar did not know who he
was. Witness G was confronted during the inquests with this
comparison, with Hugo Keith QC commenting that, ‘G, I am bound to
observe, if you will forgive me, I think one of my children could have
done a better job of cropping out that photograph.’
MI5’s excuse for such a horrendous editing job was that, ‘the
cropping is all to do with not revealing the techniques by which the
photograph was collected.’ The ability of security services to covertly
film and photograph people is not a secret, so this makes no sense
whatsoever. Witness G also referred to the need for speed in sending
the pictures to be seen by Babar, but this is also highly dubious. If the
purpose was to have the men in the picture identified then quickly
sending a poorly-cropped image to Babar that he did not identify should
have resulted in sending a better version to make sure.

Secker-. Secrets, Spies and 7/7 page197..

This fact alone destroys the 7/7 “intelligence failure/ lack of resources” narrative as an insipid cover story.
Both photographs are in the public arena and their authenticity is undisputed and we are asked to believe that in the year 2005 MI5 did not possess a working printer, or a computer nor the ability to scan a photograph and Email it to the USA?

.British Intelligence try to claim that while they were aware of Khan they did not consider him a significant risk, This is a naked lie. Khan was their man and he was a man they sought to protect and there is simply no doubt about it.
This is one of the many classic signs of a false flag attack and recurs across many different attacks because as Webster Tarpley wrote  “the patsies must be protected” if they are imprisoned they are no longer able to perform their role as the designated offender.

The fact that the British press expect their readers to buy the idea that MI5 were running around the office in the year 2005 cropping photos with SCISSORS speaks of their profound contempt for their readers Th
This attempt to prevent the US identifying Khan came less than a year prior to the London attack and on its own, even if the official story were legitimate proves outright the complicity of British Intelligence in the attack. The man they claim was the cell leader was the man they deliberately shielded from the US Government in the months before the attack.

This means that all of the circumstantial evidence presented against Khan can just as easily be explained by his attempting to establish his identity or “legend” as a “legitimate” jihadist volunteer in Malakand. It is entirely possible that Babar coerced Tanweer and Khan into making the video and they complied fearing exposure or ridicule. Khan’s status is only the front half of the story and Khan’s status as an agent does not preclude him from having gone rogue and conducted a genuine terror attack, but critical analysis of the evidence presented within the British Government narrative indicates that this is not the case.

Germaine Lindsay and Hasib Hussein.

It can be established that Khan was some type of Intelligence asset and Tanweer is assumed to have also been an asset and his identity was also obscured deliberately by MI5. It is possible that Tanweer was a dupe but the weight of evidence indicates otherwise.

Far less is known about the other two alleged perpetrators, Hasib Husain and Germaine Lindsay. Lindsay was married to Samantha Lewthwaite, a woman widely alleged to be an intelligence asset, but even if this is the case this does not necessarily mean that Lindsay was not a sincere extremist. It is worth remembering that in order to infiltrate semi- militant environmental organisations British Intelligence allowed their agents to have children under their fake cover identities and this happened in several cases. So the fact that Lindsay was married to Lewthwaite could be read either way.

One strange detail about the attack attributed to Lindsay, the Piccadilly line attack was that it was so devastating by comparison with the others with the 26 victims representing half the total deaths from four attacks. Lindsay’s train bomb for some reason also killed double the other two train attacks combined.

Hasib Husain’s actions when he was recorded prior to his own 20 minute disappearance make no sense. The supposed fanatical mass killer dined at McDonald’s, he also tried to telephone the other alleged cell members repeatedly. If he knew what they were doing and that involved blowing themselves up why did he call them after the bombs had gone off?

If he really was an attacker and he somehow could not manage to get on a train, he would simply get in a crowded area and do the evil business. As if you are going to wander round waiting to find a bus to attack and risk capture or death and failure.

The Magical Disappearances.

Another among a number of devastating facts that are not contested and which destroy the British Government account of the July atrocities is the astonishing fact that none of the four designated offenders was filmed either boarding nor travelling on nor within 200 yards of the vehicle he was alleged to have attacked.

In addition all four men inexplicably disappeared from all CCTV footage 20 minutes prior to “conducting the attack” clearly marking this as the “moment of magic”, the time at which the sleight of hand that the real perpetrators used was undertaken.

The men appeared on CCTV as they drove from Leeds towards Luton. When Tanweer stopped at a service centre,and when the men arrived at Luton station, they were filmed each and every step of the way. At around 8.25am the men are seen walking through the Kings Cross station. At this point all three” 8.50 bombers” disappear.

The problem with the train CCTV was explained by the claim that for that period of time all the cameras in the CCTV system were set on only one camera view so the view from only one camera was seen.

This may have been plausible were it not for the fact that the alleged Bus bomber Hasib Husein who was filmed after the initial wave of attacks and attacked a different wing of the public transport system with a completely different CCTV system also miraculously disappeared for a full twenty minutes prior to the attack he is claimed to have conducted.

The men travelled to the city with the most intense CCTV coverage in the world and all magically disappeared at the crucial moment. All of them.

All of the cameras that showed the men travelling mundanely to London worked perfectly well but as soon as the men were required to take the actions that comprise the actual attack they disappear.

The simple fact that the Inquest into the event did not consider within its terms of reference the cause of death of the four alleged perpetrators, contrary to all British legal norms is another straightforward destroyer of the very notion that these events were conducted by the designated offenders, whose very bodies were apparently not even present at the scene on the day of the event and who, when apparently dumped at the bombing scene some 24 hours later were accompanied by the traditional false flag totem of the id card left helpfully on the ground.

Incredibly in the case of Mohammed Sidique Khan identifying documents were found at three separate bomb sites.

The Bomb Damage.

Explosive Used In London Bombs ‘Of Military Origin’

The entire story of the home-made bombs is an almighty mess that is extremely short of evidence of any credibility.

Most of the supposed “bomb making” material at the “bomb factory” in Alexandra Grove was not explosive.

The details of the attack are terribly confused. There are however numerous accounts from eyewitnesses, including public officials that support the claim that the explosions took place underneath the carriages rather than within them.

There are accounts from several of the bomb sites that credibly describe holes in the floor blowing the floor of the train upwards and outwards.

Bruce Lait points to the spot in the carriage he saw a hole in the floor of the Aldgate train.
Bruce Lait points to the spot in the carriage he saw a hole in the floor of the Aldgate train.

 Bruce Lait says he saw a hole in the floor. In an interview with Cambridge
Evening News only days after the bombing he spoke of how they were
being helped off the bombed train by a policeman, ‘The policeman said
‘mind that hole, that’s where the bomb was’. The metal was pushed
upwards as if the bomb was underneath the train. They seem to think
the bomb was left in a bag, but I don’t remember anybody being where
the bomb was, or any bag.’
“Years later, when Lait was interviewed for the BBC’s Conspiracy
Files show on 7/7 he reiterated all of this and pointed to the same area
where the MPS diagram says the explosion happened. Lait is number
18 in the diagram, one of the closest survivors, and therefore a
consistent and important witness. It appears the police took him
seriously when he said that’s where the explosion was, but not when he
said he doesn’t remember anyone, let alone Tanweer, standing there.”

Secker,  Secrets, Spies and 7/7. Page 106.

Other eyewitness accounts conform to the Official account.

The fact that so many of the basic details of the attacks. The composition of the bombs, the detonation method remain submerged beneath the studied inertia of what appears to be a classic cover up.

Peter Power.

Peter Power is a former Metropolitan Police officer in London and in 2005 he ran a “crisis management” firm named Visor Consultants. Power has many sinister historical connections and acts as an unofficial spokesman for the British National Security State. In 2011 Power appeared on the BBC commenting n the security procedures surrounding the funeral of the recently deceased former British PM Margaret Thatcher. Power also participated in the Panorama episode of 2004 that closely anticipated the 7/7 events with identical train attacks but a different attack, a chlorine truck bomb- on the road.

The Panorama episode is certainly interesting as were Power’s interviews on the day of the events.

Ultimately, Power is a minor person of interest in this case, along with Reed Elsevier, the company who employed him on the day.but the simulation is not necessarily damning or even relevant because there was no real on the ground drill as far as we know.

If you listen closely to the Power interviews, the infamous interviews,it is perfectly clear that Power is describing a simulated event in a room not an actual training drill involving operatives on the ground.

The whole point of a “false flag” drill is that it gives the plotters an opportunity to move the elements of the attack into place under the cover of the drill and use the drill as an excuse if they are caught.

British Intelligence- A Pattern of Behaviour.
In all probability the explosives were from the British “Gladio” stocks or similar clandestine cache and one of the surprising things that looking at this case has taught me is that British Intelligence have been deeply enmeshed in most, indeed possibly all of the major terror attacks and terror groups that have operated in the UK in the post World War II era.
The IRA themselves were a synthetic terror outfit and it appears that atrocities were committed by Government agencies during the years of the troubles and the attacks were blamed on Irish people living in Britain who were innocent of the crimes.

Fake confessions were produced by torture and beatings, often the innocent patsies were later released from prison and exonerated but the true perpetrators of many of the worst attacks of the “Troubles” were never prosecuted. The crimes remain unsolved in many cases for reasons that are obvious.

Birmingham 1974.

In 1974 MI5 had one agent among the four man “rogue IRA” cell who conducted the attacks which left 21 people dead. MI5 had information from their informant regarding the attacks, the date and the targets but chose not to share the information with local police for unknown reasons.

Birmingham Six – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

At this point it is clear that despite the sincerity of many of their volunteers, the IRA were a vehicle for British Intelligence under their control to a greater or lesser extent throughout the Troubles and beyond. It is also worth remembering that British Intelligence were effectively infiltrating both sides of the Northern Irish conflict and directing both sides towards self discrediting atrocities in order to maintain British power in Northern Ireland in a classic example of the “Strategy of Tension.”

In one memorable case, British Intelligence directed a Protestant death squad in the murder of Patrick Finucane a Lawyer with no militant involvement in front of his family as they sat down to eat their evening meal. Such tactics were clearly designed to cause the people to reject both the Protestant paramilitary groups and the IRA and presumably embrace the Government of Britain.

Omagh 1998.

The Synthetic nature of Irish republican and Loyalist terror did not end when the troubles wound down following the Good Friday peace agreement of the early 1990s.

When a tiny IRA splinter group chose to continue with the atrocities after the peace deal and detonated a devastating device in Omagh in August 1998 it later emerged that British Intelligence had known of the plot months in advance but had chosen not to share the information about the cell and the impending attack with the police because they did not want to expose their assets working within the tiny terror group.

“Should we be denied truth and justice because other people don’t want it?” he told Sky News. “The reality is that Aiden need not have died. Both the British and Irish governments failed to protect the human rights of those people.” Some of the bereaved families have handed the government an independent report which they claim shows alleged intelligence failings by the authorities in the run-up to the attack.”

Surely if MI5 were engaged in a sincere counter-terrorism effort they would realise that the entire reason to infiltrate these groups should be to prevent such atrocities and these are exactly the times you would conduct a sting and end the entire operation if you were sincere. But time and again it clear that the intent is to manage the group, never to actually destroy it or prevent bad things happening. Quite the opposite,

Kincora Boys Home- MI5’s Bellast Boy Brothel for Blackmail.

Anyone in any doubt as to just how cynical and wicked are the operations of the apparently innocuous British internal intelligence agency, need only look at the story of the Kincora Boys Home in Belfast, a site from which MI5 facilitated the trafficking and abuse of numerous children by the local and British elite using the most unscrupulous imaginable means to leverage and manipulate all parties to the conflict in Northern Ireland and any other senior figures with unfortunate predilections t be harnessed and exploited.

Kincora to be excluded from British inquiry on abuse allegations

Kincora served the elite of the British military and Northern Ireland and politics alike, the place functioned as a boy brothel designed to facilitate black mail, the child rape was simply a means to an end this was merely one of many techniques used to control all parties during the Troubles.

These operations were by no means confined to Northern Ireland and the Elm Guest House in London played a similar role as Kincora in London in the early 1980’s and it appears that the Dolphin Square flats near Westminster were used for similar purposes more recently

One of many Rogue Agencies.

In fairness it should be noted that the F.B. I have played a similarly sinister and wicked role in post war life in the United States. It is no exaggeration to describe the F.B.I. As the predominant terrorist group operating in the United States over the past several decades, their role mirrors that of MI5 and if anything the evidence of their involvement in events such as the 1993 World Trade Centre Bombings, Oklahoma City and many other atrocities is even more damning than the case against MI5.

All Roads Lead to MI5.

It can be stated with confidence that the attacks of July 7th were not conducted by suicide bombers, witting or otherwise although it remains possible that one or more of the individuals blamed for the attacks were sincere terrorists.
It is clear that the four men had been for years enmeshed in a web of Islamic Militants that appeared to be under the control and direction of British Intelligence.

The truth can be discerned by reading the inexplicable missing pieces of evidence that can only be explained by deception and the concealment of criminality.

It appears as though Mohammed Sidique Khan is a sincere individual sent to infiltrate potential terror cells. It would be unfair to describe him as an agent, he seems more like a well meaning volunteer.

Khan was a respected member of the community who helped sort out gang disputes. Infiltrating potential terror cells in order to prevent an attack and protect the name of British Muslims appears to fit Khan’s character far more than the supposed suicidal terrorist.

That Khan was some type of asset, a protected species is beyond dispute. This does not preclude him from “going rogue” and conducting an attack. There is at least one recent seemingly authentic example of this in the Pakistani Taliban/Jordanian Intelligence and CIA asset Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi blew up a bunch of CIA people in a suicide attack, so it is possible.

This is where the complete lack of CCTV footage, the inexplicable disappearances of all four men twenty minutes prior to the attack fro which they are blamed becomes truly powerful and helpful as it fills in the gap in the story. If Khan had truly gone rogue and the attacks were authentic suicide bombings we would not have the magical CCTV disappearances.

On their own, these do not really prove anything but when you combine the cropped photograph, the sabotaged identification with the CCTV disappearances, the infiltrated character of the Leeds milieu, the history of the IRA and Protestant miltants being manipulated, the pattern of bomb damage and the complete lack of credible witnesses who described seeing any of the men on any of the targets, the only logical conclusion is that the men were abducted and the bombs were remotely detonated. It seems fairly clear that both Tanweer and Khan were some type of intelligence assets as Shehzad Tanweer’s identification by Babar was also sabotaged by MI5, albeit less obviously than in the case of Khan.

A Very Tentative Hypothesis.

I do not know precisely what happened in London on Uly the 7th 2005. I am not claiming that this scenario is accurate, it is simply the best explanation with the available evidence at this time in my opinion.

It is entirely possible that evidence will emerge that proves this hypothesis incorrect, but this is the best explanation hypothesis.

So it almost seems as though the two agents, Khan and Tanweer perhaps recruited one or two  willing and/or semi-willing extremists in one or both of Germaine Lindsay and Hasib Husain as part of a sting operation.

In order to make the sting operation as dramatic as possible, the men were to go through the motions of conducting a real attack but the bombs would be detonators without any actual explosives, like the 21/7 operation. A work of true brilliance that cemented the suicide bombers narrative in the public mind and served as wonderful protection for the rather brazen 7/7 deception.

Unlike 21/7 the men were all to be arrested upon arrival in London and for their own protection, Khan and Tanweer were in this scenario arrested alongside Lindsay so that Lindsay will not know they set him up.. It is unclear why Hasib Husein was apparently arrested around 40 minutes after the other three designated offenders.

At the point the men are arrested the sting morphed into a black operation. The men are murdered in custody and their bodies are later dumped at the bomb site. The bombs were presumably military explosives detonated remotely after being hidden within the train carriages.

This scenario is based only on informed speculation and until MI5 are made accountable for their actions the truth will never emerge because while it remains entirely unclear who conducted the London atrocities of 2005, there is simply no doubt that MI5 have not been honest in this matter, they know the truth behind these attacks and all logic and available evidence indicate that these were not authentic Islamist terror attacks or suicide bombings as they and the rest of the British Government dogmatically assert..

It is also clear that whomever may have been responsible, all roads lead to MI5, and there can be little doubt that they know who was really responsible for these heinous atrocities whomever they may be.

Almost all of the evidence presented here is a distilled version of Tom Secker’s authoritative work Secrets, Spies and 7/7 the most comprehensive account of these events that was available and for which I am immensely grateful and heavily indebted. None of that is to suggest that Mr. Secker endorses one word of this piece. (other than the extensive Secker quotes obviously! )

Las Vegas Massacre: Hard Proof Stephen Paddock is Being Framed.

Las Vegas police seek cover behind their vehicle during the supposed massacre of October 1st, 2017. Confusingly the civilian bystanders remain nonchalant despite standing in the supposed line of fire of the shooter situated in the Mandalay Bay resort complex building to the left.

October 5th, 2017.

Massacre In Las Vegas:100% Proof Stephen Paddock is being framed.

By now everyone on the planet who has access to the internet or television is familiar with the blood chilling story of the massacre in Las Vegas on October 5th, 2017.

We are told that Stephen Paddock, 64 years of age, meticulously planned the attack, moving dozens of weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition into his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and opened fire on the crowd attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival in the “Las Vegas Village” located at the foot of the 43 storey complex, having first used a hammer to smash two holes in the windows of the hotel in order to be able to shoot the people below.

2017 Las Vegas Strip shooting – Wikipedia

At this point there is simply no way that story is even approximately true as photographs taken when the massacre was underway clearly show that the windows in the room Stephen Paddock was supposedly committing this mass murder operation in can be seen to be complete and intact long after the event has supposedly started.

Photograph from October 2nd shows the precise location of the shooter as revealed by the two broken windows on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel building. This long shot allows us to measure precisely the location of these holes and note they are six windows down from the spot where the grey cladding ends.
This is the source for the cropped photograph below, the photo is clearly taken after the shooting is underway, that is why the police are there hiding behind their car. (Source)
A cropped version of the above photograph taken during the massacre reveals that there were no holes in the windows on the 32nd floor during the massacre. Therefore irrefutably proving the official version of the event a complete lie. The implications are clear, Stephen paddock has been framed. The LVPD have not been honest in their account and either broke the windows themselves or allowed another to do so and there is no possibility, if there even was a shooting massacre, that the perpetrator or perpetrators were situated on the 32nd floor. This simply kills the story they are telling stone dead
Close up of the holes enable us to more easily pin down their precise location. Each slightly to the left of the grey cladding as viewed from the outside.

 

The Implications.

The implications of this are that:

It is physically impossible that the massacre was conducted by a gunman on the 32nd floor room Paddock was supposedly occupying.

It is impossible that the account presented by the LVPD and FBI is accurate and complete.

It is inescapable that if the window was not broken prior to the massacre, someone else with access to the room has broken the window after the massacre in a bid to frame Mr. Paddock.

Therefore Mr. Paddock has been crudely framed by someone connected to the investigation and cannot possibly have been responsible for the killings.

Amazing Dutch Whistleblower Interview.

A remarkable and very important video emerged on the internet this week. The video is a 39 minute long interview of a man named Ronald Bernard conducted by a journalist named Irma Schiffer.

There are large gaps in the story Ronald Bernard tells and there is no way to corroborate the claims he makes,, the story Bernard outlines is however broadly corroborated by many confirmed and substantiated facts established in recent decades such as the story told by Belgian woman Regina Louf who claimed to have been abused at an elite party in Belgium at which a young girl was murdered.

The police initially regarded Regina Louf as a fantasist until she was able to direct them to the place where the young girls body had been buried and in addition to that the body still bore evidence of the torture the young girl had suffered prior t0 her death as Regina Louf had described.

More on Regina Louf and Belgium’s well documented problem of elite child abuse and murder:

Too Good to be True?

There is nothing new here, and the interview offers no names of people or institutions and therefore does not fall into the category of “too good to be true” at all in my view.

The Ronald bernard account is just another layer of confirmation. One of many. The importance of the story Ronald Bernard tells lies in the fact that we are hearing the story from the other side, an exceptionally rare event.

If people want to believe that Ronald Bernard is making this stuff up, there is no way to disabuse them of that opinion, there is no way to prove that his story is the truth, but having watched the interview there is no doubt in my mind that the story Bernard tells is substantially true.

I urge readers simply to watch the interview and decide for themselves via this link to the video or scroll to the bottom of this page.

Outline.

The story Bernard tells is that he was a smart young businessman, acting as a private financial broker when a senior figure notice his talent and invited him “in” telling him that if he chose this path he would have to learn to “put his conscience in the freezer”.

The insider introduced Bernard to his clients and essentially passed his business onto Bernard in exchange for 10% of the earnings.

The role turned out to be a kind of Mr. Fixit, a middle man laundering money and hiding transactions on behalf of elite bankers and intelligence agencies who require these financial instruments to process and launder the money from their drug, weapon and human trafficking operations.

Bernard learned that intelligence agencies are operating as above the law criminal corporations on behalf of their elite masters. Bernard also learned that senior figures within the financial institutions through which the money was passing knew what was happening.

All in all things were going swimmingly, the fact that he was helping these people to start wars, fund terrorism and launder funds obtained through human and drug trafficking was not a problem.

Ronald Bernard was an atheist at this time also so he was not overly troubled by the knowledge that the elites he was working for worshipped a “different” God than most people, they worship Lucifer.

It is worth noting that some people profess themselves to be “light” or benign Luciferians, that may well be the case, or not, but the people who rule the world today are not of that variety, their Lucifer is the destroyer, the blackening force, the force that craves suffering and violent death, the more the better.

People want to debate the nature of Lucifer, that is fine, but the people who matter, those in power, believe in the evil version, an entity interchangeable with Satan, there should be no mistake about that.

One large gap in the story relates to Bernard’s progress within the cult itself, the story jumps wildly from Bernard being an amused witness to a “Church of Satan” ritual that he describes as involving “naked woman and liquor” to the climax of Bernard’s story and the event that precipitated his physical breakdown and fall from grace within the elite, when Bernard states that he was asked to murder a child within a ritual as a kind of “final binding” to the group.

There must be many steps that take place between being an “amused observer” and that request but the story jumps straight from the observer to the potential murderer, hopefully further interviews will flesh the story out in more detail. .

Downfall and Redemption.

After Bernard’s refusal to murder a child and bind himself to the group irreversibly, Bernard appears to have begun to completely break down, his work performance dramatically declined and at some point the group he had been affiliated with abducted and tortured him to in his words “make sure that I didn’t expose them”

At some point after that Bernard completely collapsed physically, suffered multiple organ failure and woke up in the Intensive Care Ward, he later realised that he must have almost died as when he had been taken to the hospital he had observed himself from above, he had looked down and watched the doctors working on his body.

Bernard interpreted that experience to mean that he was something more than simply his body. That he was more than an intelligent lump of meat and that his essence in some form would survive his physical death.

The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.

The remainder of the interview is Bernard offering his post breakdown view of the world, one standout moment was perhaps when Bernard baldly states that “The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion” is an accurate depiction of the world today. Which is true but a rather shocking statement from a modern European.

People who have not read the Protocols completely misunderstand them, they believe that this work is an anti -Jew hate tract, a “warrant for genocide” as one professional liar described it, it is nothing of the sort.

Regardless of questions of authenticity this is the most important thing to understand.

The Protocols are written from the point of view of a Satanist or Luciferian who poses as a Jew. This is merely a front. The narrator is not a Jew and he does not like Jews, he sees them as he sees all other people, as a nuisance, an obstacle and a resource to be exploited, lied to and if necessary, destroyed.

The narrator is not describing a Jewish plot and the Protocols does not in the slightest suggest that all or most Jewish people are part of some evil plot, in fact it states precisely the opposite.

My understanding of the plotters is that they are a coalition of the blackened, so there are people from all backgrounds represented and in each case their job is to subvert the institutions and positions they inhabit for the benefit of the broader cult.

So you must have Christians, they are very important because you need them to destroy Christianity from within, to turn it into a travesty and we have seen this take place in all major Christian denominations and the same principle stands for all groups and institutions.

As far as authenticity goes, in my opinion the Protocols are a doctored document based on very good intelligence, almost all of the text appears to be authentic but some elements seem to have been added in an attempt to flatter and manipulate the Russian Czar to whom it was originally presented.

As many have stated, the authenticity of this document at this point is completely irrelevant, the document describes the world that is being built, how it is being built and the type of people who are doing it, if that is a consequence of a hoax document being embraced and implemented after release or the document was authentic when published in  1903 makes almost no difference at this juncture.

The Protocols describe the program in a very direct and powerful way. Many other (more respectable) works such as “Tragedy and Hope” and “Brave New World” provide similar insights to the Protocols, but both are far longer and far less direct.

It should be remembered that the elite want people to be prejudiced, to be ignorant, to lump individuals into massive groups and condemn them en masse.

It is the height of foolishness to allow yourself to be tricked or manipulated into thinking like that, while it is true that a demographically disproportionate number of the engineers and managers of evil come from a nominally Jewish background, that should never be used to smear anyone because of their family or religious background.

It is also the height of blindness to imagine that the numerous non-Jews who propagate evil and play key roles in the tyranny project are to be somehow swept aside and forgotten.

The final point Ronald Bernard makes is that people must overcome the divide and rule con if they are going to depose these evil forces who currently rule the world.

The interview is deeply moving and although it is conducted in Dutch, the language has so many words that are similar to or the same as English that it is very easy to follow what is being said rather than merely reading it on the screen as is the case with many more distant languages.

Please do yourself a favour and watch this video if you have not already done so. Whilst much on YouTube is ephemera and nonsense, this is the exact opposite

After more than two years under siege in their hometowns of al Fuah and Kafriya, on April 15th, they got on the buses and began the journey to the relative safety and freedom of Government held Aleppo City.

Only kilometres from their final destination the convoy of buses stopped in the insurgent held Rashideen district west of Aleppo.

Many disembarked and took the chance to stretch their legs. Many children on the buses took the opportunity to escape the cramped environment of the bus.

At some point a supposed Muslim, a fighter from one of the insurgent groups (other than ISIS who do not have any presence whatsoever to the west of Aleppo) detonated a van packed with an estimated tonne of explosives in close proximity to the buses causing the scene to become one of utter carnage and devastation.

Heart-wrenching footage from overcrowded Aleppo hospital

The attack is among the most deadly terror bombings of the entire war and the worst since the massacres of last May that killed more than 130 when a large team of suicide bombers attacked the coastal cities of Jab’leh and Tartous, in that case the carnage was caused by at least seven separate human bombs.

More than a dozen insurgents also died in the blast, which appears to have been directed by insurgent factions opposed to the Idlib/Damascus evacuation deal.

The deal remains in place but is only partially complete, an estimated 8000 people remain in al Fuah and Kafriya and Madaya and Zabadani are also only partially evacuated.

Syria resumes evacuation after terrorists kill 112

No party has claimed responsibility for the atrocity and it is likely that the specific offenders will never be identified. Suspicion has fallen upon an outfit named Fawlaq al Sham, who expressed vocal opposition to the evacuation deal. This group was vetted by the US government, labelled moderate and armed with high quality weapons such as the BGM71 TOW missiles.

In truth the insurgency has taken on such a vicious and sectarian character that there was widespread dissatisfaction with the deal. Many fighters wanted to enter al Fuah and Kafriyah and kill everyone there on the basis that they are Muslims of the Shia variety. Almost any of the numerous insurgent groups operating in western Syria are therefore suspects in the massacre.

In addition to the mass killing, insurgents also kidnapped hundreds of the civilian evacuees, their fate is unknown at this time but if further false flag attacks are planned as the Russian President recently claimed, they may well wind up murdered and used as the victims in a new atrocity to be blamed on the Syrian government.

200 Syrian civilians kidnapped by Al-Qaeda faction amid evacuation deal

An Aberration.

The culture of hatred and devaluation of human life has grown and spread like a cancerous growth in the Middle East over the past several decades.

In the Middle East, the suicide bombings were initially a largely Shia innovation in Lebanon in response to the murderous Israeli invasion and occupation that commenced in 1982 and continued until the year 2000.

The first Sunni group to engage in these operations on a large-scale was the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas who adopted the tactic in 1993, and proceeded to thoroughly blacken the Palestinian cause and help to justify and obscure Israel’s criminal nature with a series of horrific massacres of Israeli civilians over the succeeding decade.

Following the criminal US/British/Australian invasion of Iraq in 2003 the tactic was embraced by Sunni insurgents and the number of such attacks skyrocketed.

Between 1982 and the Israeli withdrawal in 2000, Hezbollah conducted, by US academic Robert Papes count, fewer than 40 suicide attacks on Israeli occupation forces.

In Iraq and Syria the so-called Islamic State group frequently exceed that in a single month, for example the group claimed to have conducted 85 such attacks in January 2016, more than double what Hezbollah had done in 18 years fighting the Israelis.

LiveLeak.com – 85 Martyrdom Operations Carried out by Islamic State Fighters in Iraq and Syria during January 2016 [Infographic]

The blame cannot therefore be placed at the feet of any one group, however suicide is expressly forbidden in Islam so to claim that the suicide bomber is going to paradise or that there is any ground for suicide attacks in Islam is a fallacy, a lie.

Attacks on military targets are not obvious war crimes in the same way as the Rashideen bus massacre but they do violate the rules the Koran asks Muslims to live by and more importantly clearly run counter to the value on life the Koran demands.

“And do not kill yourselves, surely God is most Merciful to you.”

— Qur’an, Sura 4 (An-Nisa), ayat 29 (Source-Translation)

The whole “We are the soldiers of god and we are fond of death” narrative has been completely bankrupt, an outright aberration from day one and will always be so. If you are a real soldier of god, you value life and do not crave or fetishise death.

In fairness it should be noted that  from a military tactical point of view it makes sense for poorly armed militia groups to use human bombs when facing the onslaught of air and ground bombing that accompanies a conventional military offensive. It should also be pointed out that many non-Muslims have conducted suicide attacks, from socialists in Lebanon to the Tamil Tiger separatists in Sri Lanka, who were the most prolific suicide bombers in the world prior to the Iraq war and the emergence of al Qaeda in Iraq as documented by Robert Papes in his work on the topic “Dying to Win“.

Personally it always seemed terribly wrong to me for one person, almost always a more senior person in rank and age to suggest to a foot-soldier that he should conduct an operation where his death is an essential part of the operation.

Just because a tactic makes sense in a certain situation does not mean that it is the right thing to do. It is totally immoral and the foot soldiers are simply being manipulated in a cynical and wicked manner whatever group they represent.

None of that exonerates the Neocon Zionists (nor their “Humanitarian bomber” underlings) who have been the core group responsible for the destabilisation and destruction of the Middle East over the past decades. But there is no doubt that the imperial onslaught has created terrible distortions within the Arab and Muslim world that must be addressed along with the imperial onslaught and the parallel support from Western intelligence for extremists that was the root cause.

Conclusion.

It goes without saying that the massacre in al Rashideen did not merit a mention from the new-found ally of the jihadists in the White House.

All the supposed humanitarian concern supposedly created by the Khan Shaykhun false flag incident attack was completely absent when it came to this far larger massacre. The 68 dead children did not merit even a passing mention, let alone a salvo of cruise missiles from the President who makes no attempt to hide his cynicism and hypocrisy.

US Attacks Syria with Cruise Missile Barrage on the Back of Big Lie.

At around 3.40am Damascus time on April the 7th, the US Navy launched a barrage of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles upon the Shayrat Syrian Air Force base in Homs province leaving at least six members of the Syrian military dead along with 9 civilians including four children.

Reports of damage vary widely but an aircraft repair depot containing damaged 8 planes and the radar station appear to have been the greatest losses of material.

The attack appears to have been extraordinarily militarily ineffective,but that is secondary to the fact that a threshold has been crossed, a precedent has been set and once these operations begin they almost inevitably achieve a momentum of their own.

In response Russia has suspended the agreement with the US coalition designed to avoid accidental collision or clashes between the Syrian/Russian and US coalition aircraft.

This is a troubling and potentially extremely dangerous development, but all signs indicate that Russia understands perfectly well that it is no position to directly engage the US in the Middle East.

Therefore in my opinion Russia will not respond directly against the US in Syria, certainly not in the near future, but will seek to engineer a diplomatic end to the issues.

The End of Donald Trump.

The attacks signaled to all intents and purposes the end of the Trump administration in any meaningful sense in all but name.

Trump has walked away, he is no longer present, they had a regime change over there this week it seems and now he knows he is just the front-man, has accepted it and is playing the role.

Paul Craig Roberts on Infowars, April 6th, 2017.

Paul Craig Roberts:”The establishment has reasserted itself. ”

Alex Jones: “Doesn’t he understand , he is a smart guy, that when he rolls over to these people it only encourages them.  They want his head on a spike.”

Paul Craig Roberts:”Well they don’t need his head on a spike if he surrenders to them.”

“I can’t say what he is doing but to me it looks like surrender.” (Source)

Robert Parry at Consortium News provides a credible, albeit anonymously sourced account of the internal machinations:

“the Trump national security team split between the President’s close personal advisers, such as nationalist firebrand Steve Bannon and son-in-law Jared Kushner, on one side and old-line neocons who have regrouped under National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, an Army general who was a protégé of neocon favorite Gen. David Petraeus.”

White House Infighting

“In this telling, the earlier ouster of retired Gen. Michael Flynn as national security adviser and this week’s removal of Bannon from the National Security Council were key steps in the reassertion of neocon influence inside the Trump presidency. The strange personalities and ideological extremism of Flynn and Bannon made their ousters easier, but they were obstacles that the neocons wanted removed.”

“Though Bannon and Kushner are often presented as rivals, the source said, they shared the belief that Trump should tell the truth about Syria, revealing the Obama administration’s CIA analysis that a fatal sarin gas attack in 2013 was a “false-flag” operation intended to sucker President Obama into fully joining the Syrian war on the side of the rebels — and the intelligence analysts’ similar beliefs about Tuesday’s incident.”

Instead, Trump went along with the idea of embracing the initial rush to judgment blaming Assad for the Idlib poison-gas event. The source added that Trump saw Thursday night’s missile assault as a way to change the conversation in Washington, where his administration has been under fierce attack from Democrats claiming that his election resulted from a Russian covert operation.”

Later Parry writes

“logic and respect for facts no longer prevail inside Official Washington, nor inside the mainstream U.S. news media.”

Trump’s ‘Wag the Dog’ Moment

They Know It is All a Lie.

In the space of 24 hours Trump has completely repudiated everything he ever said about Syria and foreign policy in general. The intelligence reports must be pretty damning, they must have concocted a case? Apparently not according to Philip Giraldi, extremely credible former CIA officer who stated:

“The intelligence confirms pretty much the account that the Russians have been giving … which is that they hit a warehouse where the rebels – now these are rebels that are, of course, connected with Al Qaeda – where the rebels were storing chemicals of their own and it basically caused an explosion that resulted in the casualties. Apparently the intelligence on this is very clear.”

In order to see just how these actions represent a complete repudiation of everything Trump claimed to represent, we need simply to measure the actions against the President’s own words upon inauguration.

The Inaugural Address | whitehouse.gov

The Promise to serve the people rather than the establishment.

“Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People.

For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.

Washington flourished – but the people did not share in its wealth.

Politicians prospered – but the jobs left, and the factories closed.

The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.

Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s Capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes – starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.

January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.”

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

Everyone is listening to you now.

You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before.

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens.

Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves.

These are the just and reasonable demands of a righteous public.”

This is a very powerful statement and the way I interpret it is he is saying that when he makes a decision the impact of said decision on the average American will be at the core of the process. It is the promise to govern in the interests of the people,”a nation exists to serve its citizens.”

This is a great litmus test by which to evaluate Trump as President.

Later in the speech the same themes are expressed even more forcefully and the folly of the US foreign policy over recent decades is also discussed.

“For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry;

Subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military;

We’ve defended other nation’s borders while refusing to defend our own;

And spent trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.

We’ve made other countries rich while the wealth, strength, and confidence of our country has disappeared over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions upon millions of American workers left behind.

The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed across the entire world.

But that is the past. And now we are looking only to the future.

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power.

From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.

From this moment on, it’s going to be America First.

Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families.”

The Inaugural Address | whitehouse.gov

So is there any possible way that the average American family will benefit from the hurling of cruise missiles against Syrian military airfields? If so, how?

There is simply no way any of this benefits the people of the US and that militarily ineffective barrage cost the taxpayers of the US more than 90 million dollars on missiles alone.

(the cost of a single Tomahawk cruise missile is listed as being 1.59 million dollars, 59 times that gives you 93.8 million dollars)

An Open and Shut Breach of International Law.

The attack was not in conformity with international law and can therefore be deemed a war crime in and of itself, an act of criminal aggression taken on an evidence free pretext and without the required UN mandate. It is beyond unlikely that anyone will ever be prosecuted for making this illegal order but that is due to the impotence of the administration of international law, the illegality is uncontroversial.

“All members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state” (Source)

Even if they eventually hold an investigation and it supports the assertions the US President has made about the origin of the Khan Shaykhun attack, the response was still illegal because there was no UN mandate and no imminent threat- the only situation that provides a legal exception.

” a general prohibition (on the use of force against another nation), subject only to the exceptions stated in the Charter (self-defence and Chapter VII action by the Security Council).

Use of Force by States-Wikipedia

Besting Obama in a bad way.

In his crude way, Trump has shown Obama the “correct” way to capitalise on a big lie.

Act before there is time for the real evidence to emerge. Act like a moron and pretend everyone knows what has happened without evidence, or recourse to basic commonsense.

Create facts on the ground with your response, that is, start the war and after that you’re off and away, the situation will now escalate naturally due to the action that you have taken enabling you to ride the big lie all the way to your desired outcome.

The desired outcome here would appear to be the complete destruction of the Syrian government and the dismemberment of the nation, with Israel gifted the Golan,al Qaeda, the Kurds and the Alawi/Shia./Druze/Christians all hosting mini-states in the place of Syria and never-ending bloodshed in its place.

The fact there are no Hijabs or Chadors in al Qaeda ruled Syria does not register. All they know is that they are supposed to lie.
The Mail improves and manages to post a photograph that was actually taken in Syria.. Hurrah! While they did remove the Philippine photograph this one leads the story to this day. This is a photograph of a completely healthy child in a hospital pretending to cry and doing a rather poor job of it.  The  tousled hair is a trademark the pitiful propagandist believe mimics the after effects of an air strike. Check the child for yourself, legs, untouched, arms untouched, there is no injury nor any grief. Almost certainly a retread from the earlier Aleppo propaganda campaign of 2016.(Source)

Syria: Idlib False Flag Triggers International Crisis.

 Trump De-Cloaks as Puppet of Evil.

April 7th, 2017.

The Khan Shayhkun Massacre.

On April 4th several Su22 jets belonging to the Syria Air Force attacked a town named Khan Shaykhun (population approx 50,000) in Syria’s northwestern Idlib province.

According to the Syrian and Russian military, the warplanes targeted militant warehouses, arms depots and production facilities on the outskirts of the town.

Following the attacks a number of people in the area it is claimed, began to suffer symptoms consistent with exposure to toxic chemicals. The division between the people who died as a result of high explosives versus chemical exposure has not been made clear, however it is claimed that more than 80 people died following the attack of the warplanes and the subsequent toxic exposure.

There is no clear indication what chemicals the people were exposed to nor the source of the exposure.

Russia and Syria claim that the Syrian Air Force unwittingly bombed an insurgent chemical production facility, inadvertently causing the exposure of civilians to toxic chemicals the insurgents were using to produce weapons.

According to Philip Giraldi, former CIA officer the US government intelligence indicates that it was not an attack by the Syrian Government using chemicals.

“The intelligence confirms pretty much the account that the Russians have been giving … which is that they hit a warehouse where the rebels – now these are rebels that are, of course, connected with Al Qaeda – where the rebels were storing chemicals of their own and it basically caused an explosion that resulted in the casualties. Apparently the intelligence on this is very clear.”

4/6/17 Philip Giraldi says IC-Military Doubt Assad Gas Narrative – The Libertarian Institute

2017 Khan Shaykhun chemical attack – Wikipedia

The entire Western media and the anti-Syrian government activists supported by the West and their allies claim that the warplanes launched the chemicals themselves and tellingly the Israeli government fresh from air strikes in direct support of the Islamic State near Palmyra, chipped in within hours of the incident:

Israel says Idlib chemical attack approved by highest level of Syrian government

Beyond what is implied by commonsense and logic there is almost zero evidence to support either hypothesis. According to the Western media we already know that the Syrian Government were responsible because we all “know” having dutifully digested more than six years of propaganda on the subject that Bashar al Assad is a “really, really horrible person” and that is the end of the matter.

The argument is completely circular, utterly vapid and echoes the script from numerous previous seasons of regime change propaganda directed against Syria and many other targets.

Assad chemical attack in Syria’s Idlib kills at least 100 | Daily Mail Online

The Motive,Timing and Possible Beneficiaries of this event.

Only days earlier, on March 3oth, US Secretary of State Tillerson made what seemed at a time a mundane statement to the effect that the US had accepted that the regime change operation in Syria had failed and would henceforth focus on battling the jihadists of ISIS and al Nusra.

US Didn’t “Change Priorities” in Syria, It Lost | New Eastern Outlook

This is how CNN reported on the comments.

US signals openness to Assad staying put – CNNPolitics.com

The Trump administration doubled down Thursday on prioritizing the fight against ISIS over ending the Syrian civil war and getting rid of its main protagonist, President Bashar al-Assad — a suggestion that was swiftly criticized by hawks on the Hill.”

“Indicating a possible shift in US policy on the war in Syria from the days of the Obama administration, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on a trip to Turkey that the “longer-term status of President Assad will be decided by the Syrian people.”

CNN further reported that the comments had been echoed by the US envoy to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.

“US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley was even stronger about the Trump administration’s decision not to push for Assad’s departure. “Our priority is no longer to sit and focus on getting Assad out,” Haley told wire reporters Thursday.”

The Independent delivered a longer quote from the same briefing.”You pick and choose your battles and when we’re looking at this, it’s about changing up priorities and our priority is no longer to sit there and focus on getting Assad out,” US Ambassador Nikki Haley told a small group of reporters on Thursday. (Source)

These statements at the time seemed little more than a bland acceptance of the blindingly obvious fact that unless the US was willing to wage a war against Russia, it was not going to get its way in Syria.

The War Party predictably reacted with fury to this development and the seasoned warmongers Senators McCain and Graham were equally predictably at the forefront, as CNN further reported:

“The comments drew heavy criticism from Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham, Republicans who have long advocated for an increased US military presence in Syria against Assad and his Russian allies.”

“This overlooks the tragic reality that the Syrian people cannot decide the fate of Assad or the future of their country when they are being slaughtered by Assad’s barrel bombs,”McCain said in a statement.

The motive to change this situation is so obvious and powerful that it scarcely bears stating.

The Results.

Less than a week after this setback, the War Party have the situation back in hand. The President has more than blinked he has bent and broken, revealing the mendacious and cowardly individual behind the brash front.

At this early stage only two days after the event, Khan Shaykhun is emerging as a triumph, exactly the tonic required to get the West back on track towards the complete destruction of Syria with the war party returned to their rightful place at the helm using the US military and taxpayer to destroy the Middle East as per Israel/Big Oil and the munitions industry demands and needs on the back of whatever lie is required.

This is the way things are supposed to be, this is a restoration and now that Trump has broken they can call of the dogs and cease all the Russia-gate nonsense and return to the mundane but immensely profitable business of endless war and world domination whilst putting the finishing touches on the police state.

Layers of Lies.

It is worth noting that in the fact based world there was never any actual evidence that the Syrian Government forces had ever used chemical weapons, anywhere, however UN investigations of a series of attacks in a village named Khan al Assal in early 2013 concluded that Syrian insurgents had used Sarin gas in a series of attacks leading to the deaths of government soldiers and civilians who supported the government.

Ex-UN envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi: Khan al-Assal CW attacks likely carried out by opposition. | Interventions Watch

UN’s Carla Del Ponte Stupefied By Syrian Opposition Sarin Use

These reports were simply ignored by the entire Western media and hidden behind the massive false flag chemical weapon attack several months later in 2013, in outer Damascus. That was the attack that took place two days after a UN Investigative team arrived in Damascus to investigate the Khan al Assal attacks.

How helpful and considerate it was of the Syrian leader Bashar al Assad to conduct a massive atrocity within driving distance of the UN investigators Damascus hotel. How beneficent of Assad to provide the then US puppet Obama with the cassus belli Obama had written into the script almost precisely one year earlier!

Seymour M. Hersh · Whose sarin? · LRB 19 December 2013

In the world of reason and logic, it was obvious on day one that the narrative Westerners were being force-fed about the al Ghouta attack was  puerile nonsense, for them to think they can repeat that nonsense four years later when the narrative is beyond ludicrous is proof of the unshakeable fanaticism of the war party, but also of their total creative and intellectual poverty.

The Situation in Idlib.

In Idlib governate, the last remaining Syrian Army positions of substance fell to the combined insurgent forces led by al Qaeda, in March 2015. Back then the jihadist coalition was going by the Army of Conquest title, these days they are Hayat Tahrir al Sham.

Despite the Russian support over more than eighteen months the Syrian Army and their allies have made zero progress in Idlib since 2015, recently agreeing to evacuate the only towns in Idlib that remained under Government control, making a deal to evacuate the government held Shia majority villages of al Fuah and Kafiryah in exchange for letting the insurgents evacuate two long besieged villages in the Damascus countryside Madaya and Zabadani.

Syria conflict: ‘Deal reached’ for four besieged towns

The deal essentially ended the tiny remaining ground war in Idlib province, ended all urgency of the Syrians and their allies doing anything in Idlib at all. Idlib is now simply a rear area, the only battles on the ground in Idlib are the intra-jihadist civil wars that break out intermittently.

So whereas it could be posited that the Syrian military have the motive to conduct a chemical weapons attack in a place like Der ez Zour, where a large Syrian force is entirely surrounded by ISIS and under constant ground attack and a similar argument could be made regarding other areas where the Syrian army are engaged in large-scale ground warfare, such as against ISIS in eastern Homs or against Tahrir al Sham in northern Hama. The simple fact is that the Syrian Army have not engaged in large-scale battles in Idlib since 2015, the Syrian Army has little or no presence in Idlib and therefore no realistic motive to resort to the desperate measure of the chemical attack.

There was nothing the Syrians and Russians could achieve in Idlib that would be helped by the use of chemicals, quite the opposite.

The insurgents on the other hand, are losing the war, slowly and painfully, only days earlier the US government has basically admitted the cause is lost. Their situation is desperate, they have obvious and powerful motives to either capitalise on the accidental dispersion caused by an attack on their weapons depot or even to propagate the whole thing. They are the ones who need the situation to change, they are the ones who need some event to cause the President to pivot 180 degrees in the space of a day as he just did.

They have everything to gain and nothing to lose, a history of chemical weapons false flag attacks. The scales of probability are entirely lopsided in every matter pertaining to motive.

At the point when the image of the Syrian state is being rehabilitated, at the point they are receiving massive assistance of all kinds from the Russian government, the Syrian government we are expected to believe just decided to flush the whole thing down the back for no discernible military purpose.

Trump Goes Full Retard (and the critics are gasping with joy)

Overnight President Trump has apparently been lobotomised and today we have seen the President completely break and capitulate to the war party in order to save himself.

The cad, coward and weak-minded fool that he is can no longer be hidden or denied.

As luck would have it, the King of Jordan was visiting DC and the US President took the opportunity at the joint press conference to address the Khan Shayhkun incident.

There are some real gems of black comedy here, President Trump not only knows that the Syrian Government are the culprit “These heinous actions by the Assad regime cannot be tolerated.” (Source)

He also magically knows the details of the chemical that was used just a day after it happened:

“a chemical gas that is so lethal — people were shocked to hear what gas it was — that crosses many, many lines, beyond a red line. Many, many lines.”(Source)

Although characteristically the President did not provide any specific details or evidence supporting these claims.

So did the US send technicians into al Qaeda held Idlib, which the US has itself been bombing regularly in recent months, grab some samples, take them to a lab to have them analysed and then transmit the results to the awaiting President and all his new-found War Party cohorts all in the space of 24 hours?

Clearly the President is simply talking crap based on nothing, using the same low tactics he has been targeted with on the Russia issue. The same low tactics they used against Saddam and Gaddafi and every other manufactured bogy.

Even in the world of lies the people who conjure these narratives are cheap imposters. It is simultaneously pathetic and despicable and if they get their way, no matter what happens it is a rock solid guarantee that whatever steps the US takes to destroy the Syrian state the world will feel the negative repercussions in terms of regional instability for decades.

The Nightmare Renewed.

There will be no happy ending, we know it, we have been on this ride several times before and we know how it ends, even better we know that it never ends, as the US mission in Afghanistan enters its sixteenth year with no end in sight and after ISIS the violence in Iraq will not end. The same US military that beseeched Obama for tens of thousands of extra troops in 2009 are now performing the exact same maneuver with the Chaos Clown who had already gone a long way towards proving his fealty with a $54 billion request to increase the budget of themost bloated and unnecessary department of any government anywhere, ever.

Obama was the first US President who did not preside over a single day of peace and Trump is already all but guaranteed to be the second.

Any military operations, covert or otherwise the US government undertakes against the Syrian government will threaten regional or global war, will accelerate the destruction of the Syrian state, will be contrary to international law and thus subject to sanction as aggression and beyond all that, anyone with a lick of sense knows that there is one very simple rule in the Middle East, the more the US military does, the worse things get.

The President knows this perfectly well, he stated repeatedly throughout the campaign that over the past fifteen years the US has expended trillions of dollars in wars that never end and achieved nothing.

Once Rexxon started threatening North Korea with war it was pretty clear that Trump is not really the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump is better described as the tenth President of the post- executive Presidency, he is puppet number ten to have played the role since the rulers made clear their active displeasure with the last man to defy them by having him shot to death in the full light of day and the full complicity of the security detail. When the brother didn’t get the message the same group underlined it by rubbing him out too when he had the temerity to run for office.

Number 10.

Trump is not going to be judged against George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln or even Kennedy, Trump will be judged alongside the rest of the puppets, quality individuals such as Bill Clinton, Lyndon Johnson, George H.W Bush, George.W Bush, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon and Barack Obama.

The pattern is established and the reasons for the repetition of cataclysmic errors go far beyond the shortcomings of whatever puppet is currently playing the President or which Generals command the campaign.

It has taken only 75 days of intense undermining to cause a complete rethink, a complete repudiation of not only the campaign rhetoric but the excellent words of the inaugural speech also and this comic gem stands out as the precise moment that President Trump announced himself openly as a fraudster and a sellout, just like Obama and the rest of them.

“I like to think of myself as a very flexible person.  I don’t have to have one specific way, and if the world changes, I go the same way, I don’t change.  Well, I do change and I am flexible, and I’m proud of that flexibility.  And I will tell you, that attack on children yesterday had a big impact on me — big impact.  That was a horrible, horrible thing.  And I’ve been watching it and seeing it, and it doesn’t get any worse than that.” (Source)

Unless, you were to consider for a moment, the far more deadly US air attack in Mosul that slaughtered many more of the exact same people as we are told died in Idlib but this event, one for which he bore direct command responsibility, did not elicit any public comment whatsoever from the President, who prefers to tweet on topics such as the ratings of the Arnold Schwarzenegger version of the Apprentice, the size of the crowd at the inauguration and other similarly weighty topics. Especially those that have a feel-good quality.

200+ people, mostly civilians, killed in US-led airstrikes in Mosul

Trump continued: “And I have that flexibility, and it’s very, very possible — and I will tell you, it’s already happened that my attitude toward Syria and Assad has changed very much.  And if you look back over the last few weeks, there were other attacks using gas.  You’re now talking about a whole different level.” (Source)

Now that Trump has proven his cowardice and loyalty to the empire of lies, presumably all the “establishment issues” will miraculously disappear. After all they will tell each other “we can’t be infighting when there are wars to be fought.”

There have never been worse people than these anywhere. Ever. Over the passage of time it is sadly becoming clear that the US is going to remain the most destructive and murderous force on the planet unless and until it collapses or is destroyed. Hell awaits think tank psychopaths, hell awaits.

February 9th, 2017.

Legendary Donbass Commander Slain in Donetsk.

The legendary Commander of the Somali (armoured) Battalion of the Donbass Militia forces Mikhail Tolstykh, known as Givi has been killed in an early morning attack on his office in the military headquarters of the DPR militia in Makiyivka near Donetsk.

There are differing accounts of the attack, with claims that a bomb was placed in or near Givi’s office but other claims that there was an attack by an incendiary rocket system named the RPO-A Shmel.

A Devastating Blow.

The loss of Givi is a monumental, truly devastating blow against the Donbass militias and follows the recent assassination of the Luhansk militia commander Oleg Anashchenko, killed by a roadside bomb attack on his vehicle on February 4th (Source) and the October assassination of Motorola an attack that resembles the killing iof Givi in many respects.

There has been a recent intensification of military attacks on the self-proclaimed Donbass Republics by the Ukraine military and their allies focused on the town of Avdiivka that left dozens of soldiers and civilians dead on both sides of the contact line. (Source)

The renewed Ukrainian assaults are widely perceived as an attempt to provoke Russia to become overtly involved in the Eastern Ukraine war and then use this involvement to curtail all attempts at rapprochement between Russia and the US, an oft stated aim of the new US President that potentially threatens the flow of money and weapons that are keeping the Ukraine military afloat.

Putin: Ukraine is extorting cash through war

Who was Mikhail Tolstykh?

The details of Givi’s life are that he was born in 1980 in the Ukraine, he was from the eastern town of Ilovaisk, he spent some time in the Ukraine military prior to the Donbass war.

The nickname is used in Russia to refer to people of Georgian background, Givi was not from Georgia nor had even been there, but his great-grandfather was an ethnic Georgian.

Givi came to prominence initially due to his ostentatious display of courage caught on film in late 2014 when he remained nonchalant as a barrage of rockets was landing in his close vicinity.

It is hilarious to watch him simply ignore the threat to life and limb, calmly chatting as his fellow soldiers run for cover.

Givi and MLRS “Grad” shell strike.

Givi played a significant role in many successful military operations including the Battle Of Ilovaisk  and the Second Battle of Donetsk Airport when he earned a degree of infamy after aggressively confronting captured Ukrainian soldiers and cutting their badges from their uniforms and forcing the captives to “eat” them.

[eng subs] Givi & Motorola talk to captive UAF colonel

Givi had been subjected to previous attempts on his life, but these earlier attempts were very amateurish, little more than drive by shootings in stark contrast to the highly professional killings of recent times.

Givi was the classic inspirational field commander, the fact that he was a native of the Donbass region makes his death an exceptionally heavy blow, even when compared to the Motorola killing. When they killed Motorola I thought, it could be worse, it could be Givi, and now they got him.

Who Benefits?

The short simple answer is that the Ukraine Government and military and their supporters benefit greatly from this event. There is no point speculating at this early stage as to the identity of the perpetrators, however it seems to me that the commitment and ability of the Ukraine Government and their Western backers has been widely underestimated.

There are people in Western Intelligence who are good at their jobs, they know how to compromise people, how to turn people and force them to collaborate in operations and it seems that the underestimation of these agencies and an overestimation of the support the militia have within the Donbass has left the door open for the Ukrainians and their allies to enlist people on the ground in Donetsk to help them carry out these operations.

The Ukraine Government signed onto the Minsk accord in early 2015 and in the succeeding two years have refused to attempt to implement the deal point-blank. The heads of the self-proclaimed Republics offered to meet and negotiate with the Ukraine Government and this offer was flatly refused.

Over the two years of low intensity warfare that followed the signing of the second Minsk accord, the Ukraine has been on the offensive, seizing a number of settlements from the Donbass militia forces whole their Western sponsors continue to pretend that the Donbass militia are responsible for this situation.

Until the leaders of the Western nations supporting the Ukraine take a more honest approach and consequences are imposed on the Ukrainians for their mendacity, the senseless killing will continue indefinitely.

The Future of Australia Day (and a Short History of Oz Rock)

The Australia Day Memory.

I have one memory of Australia day from childhood, I assume it is an amalgam of several different Australia days from the early 1980s.

The day is scorching. I am at a gathering with my extended family. It is the middle of the day, people are drinking beer and meat is being cooked on a barbecue. Cricket is on the television and people are clustered around it watching Australia who are losing badly and someone comments “At least you’d think they could win on bloody Australia Day” and it is all downhill from there.

The fact that we were celebrating the beginning of the colony and therefore the beginning of the land genocide of the indigenous population never occurred to us for a moment. The reason for this was ignorance and complacency.

A Brief Aboriginal History

Sadly many Australians still live in that world of ignorance and complacency but far fewer than at that time as attested by the large demonstrations yesterday against the national holiday being on the date of the beginning of the colony.

The date of the national holiday has little practical importance but it becomes insulting when people become indignant and upset when indigenous Australians refer to the date as “Invasion Day” missing the fact that the choice of this date makes it impossible for indigenous Australians to view it as a day for celebration.

The British, it should be remembered,  classified Australia as terra nullius (nobody’s land) pretending the indigenous people did not exist, thus saving themselves the trouble and expense of negotiating with them and enabling the wholesale theft of the continent at almost no cost.A musket here, a blanket there.

It is sadly typical act of arrogance to expect indigenous Australians to celebrate the anniversary of the beginning of the land genocide that began in 1788.

The intent of the entire national day project (unity and celebration) is thus defeated, and will always be defeated while the date is January 26th. In some major cities more people are protesting the date than celebrating it already.

“The crowd at Federation Square – estimated by some to be up to 50,000 people – is believed to have eclipsed the number of people who attended the earlier Australia Day march along Swanston Street.” (Source)

Given that the nation was born on the New Year and the nation has tried to have a more constructive and inclusive relationship with the indigenous population who were simply treated as non-entities by the British, New Years Day would be a better choice for the national day of celebration .

People Should Simply Ignore the Government and Start Celebrating Australia Day on New Years Day or another.

The Government has the ability to make January 26th a public holiday and stage their tiresome and corny ceremonies but they do not have the power to make anyone participate in or pay attention to any of it. Nor do they have the ability to prevent anyone celebrating Australia Day on a different date.

It seems like a good idea to me to begin to stage Australia Day on another date and this will provide a positive outlet to celebrate Australia that would provide a nice compliment to the entirely negative (with good reason) Invasion Day movement.

The logical choice, with the built-in advantage that it is already a public holiday and the day the nation actually came into being would be New Years Day.

Celebrating Australia.

Growing up most of the big Australian heroes were sports players. We were told that the batting of Don Bradman and the winning runs of Phar Lap, the champion racehorse of the day, “kept people going” during the depression of the early 1930’s. The whole line is infantile nonsense in retrospect but that has been the standard in Australia.

Recently a video was posted on the internet showing Ukrainians in Kiev staging a march celebrating the life of the Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera. I cruelly commented “Who or what else do they have to celebrate?”Yet if we cast aside our sporting heroes, whose achievements are made in an entirely insignificant field, the same question could easily be asked of Australia.

“Who or what do we have to celebrate?”

There are many practical things of course,there is so much we take for granted having never known any different. In terms of culture it becomes more difficult.

Between the mid 1970s and late 1980s Australian music, pop music  seemed to go through a real heyday with a lot of great music being created in a short time and although several of the bands that were part of that broad wave, such as Midnight Oil, INXS, the Divinyls and Icehouse rose to international prominence, many of them were well past their best by the time it happened meaning that much of their best work remains neglected.

Here is a small sample of some personal favorites from this era and earlier with some brief explanatory notes where appropriate.

The Easybeats.

The Easybeats were one of the greatest bands of the 1960s,and are rightfully celebrated as the first great Australian band. Their greatness is undisputed however the Australian part of the story is cloudy.

The Easybeats were a British style band composed almost entirely of Brits who formed in a Sydney migrant hostel that still operates, today the site hosts a prison for people who are awaiting deportation named the Villawood Detention Centre.

They were not just British they were just off the boat. So, they were not Australian but they were a truly great band based in Australia, their brilliance must have helped other local musicians, they set a great example. Friday On My Mind is far and away their best known tune but they had numerous classics.

The Easybeats – Friday on My Mind

Friday On My Mind is a brilliant song but it is very British and very white, Good Times is a little funkier, less Beatles more Stones, this song was a massive hit decades later when covered by INXS.

The Easy Beats “Good Times”

Eagle Rock by Daddy Cool.

This song has been so overplayed that it has become easy for Australians to despise it, a fresh listen reveals Eagle Rock is a classic piece of pop blues reminiscent of a boppier Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1971 it was still a chart topper as late as 1990 when it hit number one in New Zealand.

AC/DC.

AC/DC were drawn from the same group of British immigrants who formed the Easybeats. The guitarists Malcolm and Angus Young were the brothers of Easybeat George, who assumed production duties with AC/DC.

All of the important members were Brits, even those who came from outside the core coterie and after Bon Scott died in 1980 they became a completely British band.

Few guitarists have matched the heavy catchy riffs of Malcolm and Angus Young. I must admit that having been a big drinking band for me, I have never loved the as much since I stopped.

This is a classic typical AC/DC track with a simply brilliant video of them driving through Melbourne on the back of a flatbed truck. When Bon Scott was alive they were one of the greatest ever hard rock acts, they were pretty mediocre after his death except for Back in Black, the first post Bon Scott album.

Cold Chisel.

Cold Chisel came from Adelaide, Australia’s fourth largest city and not a noted cultural centre. Cold Chisel oved from Adelaide to Melbourne and then Sydney, where they finally found success.

The band never achieved great international success and this was a loss to the rest of the world. They were a strangely literate bluesy hard rock band capable of brilliant straight pop songs such as “Forever Now” as well as pub rock classics such as “Cheap Wine”. Interpersonal relationships within the band were often troubled with drunken internal brawls a regular item on the menu and they never made the international impact they deserved, but the work stands up very well.

The Divinyls.

The Divinyls were a pop rock outfit in the Easybeats and (to a lesser extent) AC/DC tradition, they opened their set for many years with their brilliant version of the Easybeats “I’ll Make You Happy”, they were a brilliant band who achieved international success in the early 1990s when they were a crass imitation of their former selves with tracks like “I Touch Myself”

Chrissy Amphlett was a great singer and songwriter along with guitarist Mark McEntee, but because Chrissie Amphlett played quite a rough female character when Olivia Newton John style Kewpie dolls were the fashion they struggled for many years to make any international impact and even in Australia their greatness seemed to be under rewarded-Science Fiction is one of the greatest pop singles released anywhere anytime,yet it only reached number 13 on the Australian charts on release in 1983.(Source)

Icehouse.

Icehouse were a vehicle for the classically trained Iva Davies.They had many great songs,my personal favorite is probably “Can’t Help Myself” but their most important song without a doubt is “Great Southern Land” one of the few truly great songs written about Australia.

Icehouse – Can’t Help Myself

INXS.

INXS started in the late 1970s as a run of the mill post punk type outfit. By the third album Shabooh Shabaah in 1982 they were writing some excellent songs such as Don’t Change and the One Thing and had created a semi-original sound, a strange hybrid of synth heavy pop rock.

With their fourth album the Swing in 1984 the group improved immensely and created some of the best songs in the history of Oz Rock. Two albums later they became massive with the first three singles from 1987’s Kick making the top 3 in the US, after that they basically fell off but they made a string of classic singles right through the 1980s, this track from 1984’s the Swing is a high point.

INXS – Love Is (What I Say)

Midnight Oil are probably the greatest band Australia has produced, they were very idiosyncratic, they did not sound like any other band at all and they were the most ostentatiously Australian band of all yet still managed to achieve mass international success due to the quality of their work which speaks for itself.

Midnight Oil – Saturday Night at the Capitol part 9 – Lucky Country

One of the reasons I really love Midnight Oil is the fact they were one of the very few people in Australia who made some attempt to understand and explain what is going on.

Some of their lyrics are very interesting and thought-provoking, even to those who don’t share their political views, these passages from the 1983 classic “Power and the Passion” provide a great pocket glimpse into Australia then and now.

“People, wasting away in paradise…..

Sunburnt faces around, rhe skin so brown
Smiling zinc cream and crowds, some days the beach never a cloud
Breathing eucalypt, pushing panel vans
munch junk food, laughing at the truth

cos Gough was tough til he hit the rough
Uncle Sam and John were quite enough

Too much of sunshine too much of sky
It’s just enough to make you want to cry…….

I see buildings, clothing the sky, in paradise
Sydney, nights are warm
Daytime telly, blue rinse dawn
Dad’s so bad he lives in the pub, it’s underarms and football clubs
Flat chat, Pine Gap, in every home a Big Mac
And no one goes outback, that’s that
You take what you get and get what you please
It’s better to die on your feet than to live on your knees”
