In an unprecedented and undoubtedly criminal act, the Government of Saudi Arabia has dropped leaflets in the Yemen province of Saada, on the southern Saudi border ordering the entire population, which Wikipedia puts at almost one million people, to leave.The Saudis have declared that they are going to treat anyone left in Saada after Friday afternoon as a legitimate target in what are threats to commit massive scale crimes against humanity.
(Saudi Arabia) “warned all civilians to leave the restive province after declaring the entire territory was a “military target.”
This was from the Daily Star of Lebanon.
“Saudi state television channel Al-Ekhbariya said the whole of the northwestern province would become a military target from Friday evening, hinting at an escalation in the Saudi-led coalition’s six-week-old intervention in Yemen’s civil war.” (Source)
Yemen: Saudi-led airstrikes bombard Saada province, destroy shrine
These threats, clearly wildly in contravention of international law are in response to the apparent Houthi shelling of the southern Saudi city of Najran that left several civilians dead during the week. These attacks may well have been conducted by the Houthis, or have been false flags by the Saudis, it is unclear.
A Small Sample of Events from the U.N
“In one incident,” she said, “on 1 May, at least 17 civilians were killed, including four children and nine women, and 27 civilians were injured as a result of an airstrike that allegedly targeted the home of a Houthi leader in the Sa’wan area of the capital, Sana’a City. Residents reported that they had believed their homes were safe as there were no military locations nearby.”
“In the war-torn seaside city of Aden, at least 22 civilians were killed in two separate incidents in the past week, according to the OHCHR spokesperson.”
“And we are particularly concerned about airstrikes which hit a military field hospital in Damnat Khadeer District, 40 kilometres north of Taiz,” she said. “UN human rights field monitors were denied access to the site, so it has been difficult to verify the death toll and establish who the victims were.” United Nations News Centre – Yemen conflict death toll nears 650, with UN rights office spotlighting plight of 3 million disabled
In another sign of the Saudi desperation, they were finally able to find themselves the janissaries they have been seeking…. from Senegal. In exchange for large scale loan promises, Senegal has pledged to send 2100 troops to the Saudi Arabia-Yemen border area. The Senegalese government have amusingly told their people that the forces will be defending the holy sites of Mecca and Medina from invasion! I guess they must watch only the ABC type television in Senegal.
Saudi Arabia: See Najran destruction after Houthi attack
The Sooner they Fall the Better.
Saudi Arabia simply has no legal right to call this entire massive province a military target and the attempt to do so is an apparent indication of the Saudi megalomania and desperation. The House of Saud is quite simply one of the most venal and corrupt and wicked forces afoot on the planet today and the sooner these low criminals make their inevitable departure into the forgotten backwoods of history the better.

April 25th, 2015. UKRAINE ALLIES GO ISIS!
The Azov Battalion Crucified a Man and Burned Him Alive on Video!!
Ukraine’s ISIS. Members of neo-Nazi Azov battalion crucifying & burning a “separatist”
These are our allies. These are forces the US recently sent three hundred military training forces to aid. The forces the Australian Prime Minister stated we were “all behind”. They appear to have crucified a man and burned him alive on video. It is one of the worst things I have ever seen.
The video shows a man being nailed to a cross in an outdoor setting, a forest clearing, by a group of masked men who claim t be from the Azov battalion. The video is coming from Novorussian sources, Kazzura posted it on their second channel but it was removed but I found it on a channel called Russian Insider. The video shows the man being nailed to the cross and the men set a fire underneath him after raising the cross. The video cuts off as the man begins to scream (his mouth is taped up) as the flames below begin to reach him.
All of these propaganda videos deserve to be treated with skepticism, this may be a hoax, but the footage appears to be authentic.
I have previously found footage where a member of the Azov battalion admitted to the torture of captured fighters. That doesn’t prove anything of course.
Who are the Azov battalion?
The Azov battalion are one of several so called “Volunteer” or “political” units, or militias that fight for the Ukraine but are not formally part of the Ukraine army. They are basically right wing ultra-nationalist militia integrated into the Ukraine military due to necessity. The Ceasefire and the Minsk Agreement.
The ceasefire in the Donbass never took hold, but has been breaking very slowly, in small steps. The bottom line is that the Ukraine Government has treated the Minsk agreement with contempt, they showed no interest at any time in negotiating a settlement with the DPR and LPR leadership despite pledging to do so at the moment of the ceasefire.
Until this changes the war will presumably grind from failed ceasefire to failed ceasefire with the Ukraine government presumably hoping that if it is still ongoing in 2017, the next US administration may offer decisive help.
I have little doubt in the crucifixion videos authenticity, I am sure many will question it and it may turn out to be a fraud. I hope so, but I know what I saw. If the video is authentic it will be just one more chapter of horror from the same people who strangled a pregnant woman in Odessa last May, who shot their own people in the Maidan and presumably were also part of the broader group that destroyed flight MH17 and murdered all on board. That is not to forget the thousands of civilians slain in the indiscriminate bombardment of the Donbass region.
Nuland and Pyatt and Soros and Henri Levy must all be very proud of themselves.
Azov Battalion Member Admits to Torture POWs in Donbas
ANZAC Day 2015 100th “Anniversary” of the Dardanelles Fiasco.
Tomorrow, April 25th will mark the 100th anniversary of the failed British, Australian and New Zealand attack on Gallipoli, Turkey. This is an extremely big deal in Australia because the First World War was the first major war for the Australian military, Australia having become an independent nation at the beginning of 1901 and Gallipoli was the first battle of that war.
The Gallipoli campaign involved an eight month attack on a remote region of Turkey for unknown reasons that left more than 6,000 Australians dead and achieved absolutely nothing positive, other than for the Turks, whose Commander at Gallipoli Kamal Attaturk rose to lead the post Ottoman Turkish nation who justifiably celebrate their great victory at Gallipoli.
World War 1 for Australia- a Human Catastrophe Borne of Blind Loyalty to the British Empire.
To Remember the soldiers who died in our name is a very good thing, to do otherwise would be unthinkable, but we do the sacrifice they made a disservice if we neglect to mention the context in which the wars were fought. The reasons or lack thereof for the sacrifice that we commemorate.
World War I was completely unnecessary, achieved absolutely nothing and ultimately was little more than an elite organised mass human blood sacrifice. Neither Australia nor even Britain were under any real threat. The lesson we have only half learned is that Australia should never become involved in Imperial wars that have no bearing on Australia and take place in distant continents ever again.
More than 420,000 Australians participated in World War 1, more than 60,000 died and 137,000 more were wounded.
In 1915, the Australian population was recorded at fewer than 5 million, Translated into today’s Australia with a population of around 23 million people, that would be the equivalent of more than 270,000 killed and 630,000 wounded and a deployment of 2 million. The scale of the deployment was clearly pure madness.
A Very Brief History of the Australian Military.
Like all forces that are not great powers, the history of the Australian Military is of little interest to outsiders. To put it in the simplest terms, by and large the history of the Australian military is a very respectable one, albeit almost always in the capacity of the imperial Janissary. This overall relatively positive history is marred by two major calamities. The calamities were the World War 1 involvement and the consequences of the fall of Singapore in early 1942 that saw thousands of Australian forces trapped and captured by the Japanese Army.
Each of these calamities was caused by blind faith in Britain and the naive, indeed idiotic belief that Britain would act loyally towards Australia.
The Birth of a Nation?
It seems mad that the single most disastrous decision ever made by an Australian government should be celebrated in any way. Did anyone actually think to ask the Australian Prime Minister Billy Hughes at the end of the war,what Australia had achieved for the loss of 60,000 dead men (and women)?
The answer for decades was that it was worth it because the valor of our troops proved to the British that Austral ans were no longer convicts, but honorable and worthy of respect. That seems to be why the catastrophe occurred, the desperate desire for the approval of the British establishment mobilised the Australian politicians and people alike it seems.
It appears that Australians were intensely brainwashed to respect the British establishment despite their transparently criminal and vile nature and to take seriously the whole “island of reprobates” myth.
The Meaning of Independence.
Even when the war is portrayed critically we are delivered simple minded trash about it all being the fault of the British aristocrats who led the British army at that time.
Yet it was Australian politicians that wasted hundreds of millions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of young Australian lives on the basis of the pathetic fantasy of winning the respect of the British.
The story of Gallipoli only goes to show that in 1915 Australia was independent in name only and that the mindset of the Australian political leadership was no more than obedience and fealty to the British.
The Convict Stain is a Joke.
The real crime, the real stain we bear as Australians is that of the destruction and displacement of the indigenous Australian civilisation that we displaced and largely destroyed.It is obvious to anyone with any sense that the whole convict story was a bunch of self serving tosh the British used to mask the real crime, the theft of the continent and the declaration that the existing inhabitants were flora and fauna!.
The British had recently abolished slavery, but the slave owner mindset persisted The British wanted to steal Australia and there was a lack of volunteers,so the convict transportations were simply a means by which to press gang sufficient numbers of the British underclass to leave and at the same time also provide a slave labor work force to help induce the free settlers to join the colony. Settlers and workers were required in order to populate the continent. and thus extend their Empire to the southern island continent, the convicts were two birds with one stone. Many of the people they sent were criminals, but many were not. People were transported for belonging to Trade Unions and the rule of Law was an absolute joke in Britain as remains the case to this very day.The truly wicked British criminals rule and live behind a veil of legal impunity and do not hesitate to frame any who threaten their position.
Today a man named Michael Shrimpton sits in a British jail because he offered intelligence about a terror threat in good faith to the British government. The corruption is truly breathtaking and was presumably even more pronounced in the 18th century. All the findings of British courts both then and now can thus be treated with skepticism if not outright contempt
The British System is Completely Corrupt, Hypocritical and Morally Bankrupt.
High status individuals still enjoy immunity from prosecution. The nauseating case of the pathetic worm Greville Janner makes it absolutely clear that this persists to this very day. So of course the people transported were almost all members of the underclass, the upper echelon criminals enjoyed immunity in Britain in the 18th century as they do today.
A week before the DPP Alison Saunders adjudged Janner unfit for trial on dozens of cases of child rape Janner had written and signed a letter to the House of Lords stating that he would like to extend his leave from the House, this fact surely makes the position of the DPP completely untenable. How is that possibly tolerable? Not only is it tolerable but this is the British way, this is the tradition.
So the whole idea that Australia was a “nation of miscreants” in need of redemption from the “convict stain” was pure nonsense, a farce that the British managed to inculcate in Australians and this was a root cause of the catastrophe of Australia in World War 1.
It is astonishing the way the Australian leadership and people were never able to see Britain for what it was, a criminal Empire run by feudalist crime lords with sick predilections and no legitimate claim to the throne under the supposed bloodline system.
The real British monarch is some anonymous bloke who lives in country New South Wales. Not that it matters.
Transportation for whatever reason was thus a rescue, the Australians were at least physically, beyond the clutches of the venal and wicked British establishment. They deserve gratitude for that if nothing else.
Head Office Moves to Washington DC.
It made perfect sense for Australia to transfer loyalties to the new head office of the empire, Washington DC during World War 2 and all in all, coup aside, the Americans were a far better ally than the UK for the obvious reason that the American leadership did not share the neuroses and class obsessions of the British establishment.
Australian forces participated in the Korean and Vietnam wars, suffering around 500 deaths in each, lost forty soldiers in the Afghan war,(the US remains but the Australians have departed) and also participated in the criminal attack on iraq,This means that the former Australian PM John Howard is an unprosecuted war criminal along with Bush, Blair and the rest.Howar deserves condemnation as for the =decision to join the criminal coalition of the willing.
From a purely Australian viewpoint Howard deserves immense credit for not subjecting the Australian military to the nightmare occupation of Iraq. As a result Australia suffered zero combat fatalities in the Iraq war in contrast to the 150 plus British troops and 4800 Americans that died there.
In Vietnam, Korea in Afghanistan and most of all in Iraq, the US took more than their fair share of the casualties.
The US population is 15 times Australia, between these three wars the US has taken almost 70,00 kia whereas Austrlai suffered around 550, rounding up. These casualties are only 10% of the US based on population. The Australian casualties were very low proportionally, unlike World War 1 when Australian casualties were among the highest for any participant.
Other than World War 2 All Australian wars were Wars of Choice Acting as Imperial Auxiliaries.
Beyond the many wars for the sake of the alliance, there have been Australian military operations in East Timor and the Solomon Islands, I categorise East Timor as a peace keeping operation that was not aggressive in intent. War like incidents took place, If you call that a War it was an exception to the rule. It was not an act of aggression, they didn’t attack East Timor anymore than Russia attacked Crimea in March 2014. It was a show of force operation that was sanctioned by the UN and it did not lead to major violence. That is not to understate the risks to the soldiers stationed there, it just wasn’t a war in the negative sense and did not lead to a bloodbath but rather reduced the violence. If an operation reduces the violence in an area as that operation did, it is not a war in my opinion .
The Same Old Rhetoric but the Lesson Was Learned.
A century and many wars later, Australia’s World War 1 casualties still comprise well over 50^ of the total Australian military death toll. Australia remains a Janissary nation but the politicians who followed Hughes never showed the same callous indifference towards Australian lives, nothing like it. That is one thing that deserves gratitude, but it also shows what a maniac Hughes must have been to send ALMOST 10 PERCENT OF THE ENTIRE POPULATION (8.4%) in a war no one can explain even a century later that had no bearing on Australia’s vital interests. Billy Hughes, the British born Australian politician who sent all those men to die for nothing deserves to be remembered as quite simply the worst “Australian” politician who ever lived. Funnily enough he was British.
The fact that this man is greeted with the same reverence attended any other dead politician merely shows how supine and asleep we apparently remain.
Still the 40 soldiers killed in Afghanistan in an unwinnable war with ridiculous aims incited by an obvious and proven false flag attack that really had nothing to do with Afghanistan even by the Official story. The proponents of the war tried to say that terrorists trained in Afghanistan. It was true that MI and CIA maintained training bases for jihadists there, Osama bin Laden helped run some of their camps. But much of the training for 911 according to the Official story , took place in the USA, this is where the pilots trained, others supposedly took martial arts, so you might just as well invade America as Afghanistan, it was that silly. And as for the idea that a progressive social order can be imposed upon people by the force of arms and military occupation. It is pure stupidity. No one surely really believes that sending heavily armed men to occupy a nation and bombing it extensively from the air will have a moderating influence? No one could possibly be so silly to believe that could they?
As if you need to occupy a country for more than a decade in order to wipe out a couple of training camps that the US air force could destroy completely in around two minutes. I feel terrible for the soldiers that had to go through the ordeal, they are the real victims in this matter, not the people who sit at home. There is no point trying to lie and pretend that the war was a good idea or for a just cause, no matter how well intentioned the participants, when it wasn’t. It just wasn’t.
The Hard Lesson.
A security policy that is anchored in one alliance with one very powerful nation has many shortcomings and problems. It is not the fault of the American people that their nation has been seized and is under the control of a psychopathic crime syndicate, but it has happened, the success of the September 11th false flag massacre makes this fact inescapable. Until the US is liberated from these sinister forces, the alliance , which has overall been relatively cost free for Australia could become a poisonous thing. If the Washington warmongers decide to do something really mad like a major war with Russia or China, or even Iran, Australia must be a voice of moderation and sanity and we must never again throw our people away in the Empire’s Wars of choice.
The Bottom Line.
Although the casualties at least are minute compared to the World War 1 nightmare, the truth is the Australian military should only be used to defend the Australian nation and should only ever be deployed overseas on peace keeping operations such as East Timor and the Solomon Islands. If the Australian nation is to mature we must recognise that the only true security comes from independent means of defence that do not presume the assistance of any ally.
When the Saudi led coalition announced yesterday that the air strikes were ceasing, they sated plainly and clearly that “the Houthi rebels no longer pose a threat to the Security of Saudi Arabia. The statement was a joke, predicated on the falsehood that the Houthis had ever posed a threat to Saudi security but this statement removes all pretensions of legality from this operation, this massacre, as the self defense as authorised by Section 51 of the UN charter was the only possible legal justification for this operation and the Saudi’s by their own words have admitted there is no threat to their security. Every bombing from now on is simply a naked, criminal terrorist attack. All of the deaths that the Saudis inflict from now on, including those depicted from Taiz after the supposed ceasefire are war crimes, even in the Saudi’s own self serving version of events.
This is Brigadier-General Ahmed al-Asiri quoted by al Jazeera, of Qatar, part of the Saudi led coalition bombing Yemen.
Saudi Arabia have announced they will stop bombing Yemen, stating ridiculously that the “Houthi rebels no longer pose a threat to Saudi Arabia.” They never did.They seem to be trying to leave their options open for a ground invasion, my guess is that this will not happen because the Saudi casualties would be huge. Already at least 18 Saudi soldiers have died, mostly in clashes at the Yemen Saudi northern Yemen border region. The civil war will presumably grind on regardless of what the Saudis do. This operation has been without legal justification, there was no threat to Saudi Arabia there was no UN sanction and therefore this entire operation was a war crime. According to Press TV the death toll from the Saudi attacks more than 2700 people killed, Western sources, the New York Times and Wikipedia place it at around 1,000. The Saudis have simply humiliated themselves and proven their mendacity and impotence with this flailing and futile operation.
The Saudis Lied!
The Saudi announcement that the bombardment of Yemen was over turned out to be a brazen lie. Saudi airstrikes have continued after the supposed cessation as the fact that they have been completely militarily ineffective is slowly absorbed by the incompetent and despicable Saudi leadership. Ultimately a political solution is required and until that is achieved the Houthis will continue to defeat the al Qaeda extremists and their allies in Yemen backed by the West and Saudi Arabia and there is nothing the Saudis or the US can do about it.

The Attack on Yemen and the “Game of Thrones” in the Middle East.
The beleaguered and impoverished citizens of Yemen are under attack. Saudi aircraft have been bombing Yemen with Western support for several weeks now, since the 25th of March.
The Saudi bombs have exacted an horrific toll on the people of Yemen and caused the widespread displaceent of civilians in the targeted areas. At least 600 people are dead and more than 100,000 civilians displaced.
The Saudi attacks are militarily ineffective and appear to be having a disastrous political affect if the massive Sana’a demonstration is a sign of the broader sentiment.
The Saudis may have actually done the one thing that may see many Southern Yemenis unite behind the Houthi rebels who have responded to the attacks by intensifying and widening their offensive operations against forces loyal to the former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and their Sunni extremist allies of al Qaeda in Yemen.

Several Major Wars Between Saudi and Iran Allies.
So there is a large war in North and Western Iraq, all of Syria is effectively at war, there is now a new major war in Yemen. These wars date back to the illegal US invasion of Iraq in 2003 and the extremist groups that formed in the wake of the disastrous US occupation of Iraq. The US presence largely ended in 2011, only to see the US return to war in Iraq.in June 2014 in response to the massive gains made by the supposed Islamic State group in Iraq. Inclding most notably the seizure of Mosul the largest city in Nprthern Iraq.
Soon after the US also entered the Syrian Civil war,on the opposite side to that envisaged 12 months prior after the al Ghouta false flag chemical attack of August 21st, 2013.
The West came to the brink of attacking the Syrian Government in September 2013 in the wake of the al Ghouta false flag of August 21st. Russian diplomatic intervention combined with a negative vote in the British Parliament. And the reluctance of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff and other elements saw the attack averted only days from the scheduled barrage.
The Middle East Defined in the Broadest Sense and the Current Wars .
Technically speaking Afghanistan is in central asia and libya is in north africa, but if the middle east is defined in the broadest possible way as comprising the area between India and Morocco there are curreltly small or large wars are now underway in:Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen and Egypt (Sinai specific) and even small parts of Lebanon, are currently engaged in war of small or large scale, ranging from the problem in Egypt, that is isolated to the far northern Sinai peninsula to the epic, biblical scale tragedy of Syria .
There are a series of large wars taking place in Northern Iraq, but southern Iraq and Baghdad are not at war.
The whole thing is such a complicated mess that it may be better rather than describing each and every conflict in detail, to look at the power players in the Middle East and trace their actions and understand what is happening from the viewpoint of the major regional powers. Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy, major Cabinet posts are filled by the members of 5,000 person Royal family.
The very name gives a strong sign as to the nature of the state.Because naming the state Saudi Arabia would be exactly like calling the UK Windsor (or Saxe Coburg) Britain. Or Tudor Britain in the past. The very state bears the name of the ruling house.
Saudi Arabia has been ruled by the House of Saud since it’s inception in the 1920’s. The House of Saud had a positive relationship with the Imperial powers even before oil was discovered there decades later.
Saudi Arabia has the largest oil deposits of any nation and the oil is extremely accessible. Saudi Arabia is the largest and most powerful of the Gulf states and assumes a leadership role in the GCC, Gulf Cooperation Council.
The House of Saud and Wahhabism.
Saudi Arabia is the home of the major sites of Islam, mecca and Medina and the yearly Muslim pilgrimage remains a major source of income for the Saudis who historically have run the Haj absolutely disastrously, with overcrowding routinely leading to hundreds of deaths in a single pilgrimage.
The specific form of Sunni Islam practiced in Saudi Arabia is Wahhabism and this is deeply problematic. It’s not the practices of Wahhabism that are particularly troubling, although they are also problematic but the view that Wahhabism has of other groups is deeply antagonistic and really anti-human.
The sectarian intolerance of Wahhabism is the core problem of this 18th century doctrine.
Years ago, a pamphlet emerged that had been distributed to guest workers to the nation (another group treated abominably for completely different reasons) to Saudi Arabia. It was at face value a guide to Saudi culture but contained multiple vituperative attacks for example on Shia Islam. A large minority of the population of Saudi Arabia is Shia so this is no incidental blind spot.
This account from Ahmad Ali Khalid a Pakistani who lived in Saudi Arabia provides a neat short portrait of this.
“One can witness a pervasive sort of racism, a form of Saudi supremacy that views other types of Arabs and particularly the South Asian expats (who are mostly labourers) as inferior and mere ‘commodities’ who can be bought and sold ruthlessly. Expats are not human beings but a commodity to be bartered and acquired. Connected to racial supremacy is an attempt to insulate the regime from criticism by using the cloak of religion. Saudi textbooks are filled with references to hate; the Islamic Studies curriculum in the country is simply barbaric. I’ve experienced first-hand being taught by an Islamic Studies teacher in one of the most prominent private schools in Riyadh, about the dangers of having non-Muslims as friends and about the evil conspiracies hatched by Christians, Jews and Shias. In Pakistan, Saudi petro-dollars have funded factories of hate in the form of the madrassa system. ‘Petro-Islam’ is a nightmare scenario – capitalism and a dangerous ideology locked in a tight embrace. It is because of the sheer amount of money behind this austere and dangerous theology that it can easily overwhelm the moderate elements in any given society.”
Pakistan Said No.
Struggling to impose their will upon Yemen, Saudi Arabia requested that Pakistan offer up it’s Air, Naval and Army forces for the Yemen operation.
This implies that the Saudis are so deluded and hubristic that they actually thought that they might send the Army of Pakistan to conquer Yemen. Saudi Arabia has offered substantial financial support to the Pakistani military in the past, and Pakistani soldiers were involved in the operation to seize the Grand Mosque of Mecca from Islmaists who seized it in 1979. The Pakistani Government and Parliament said no to the Saudi Arabia requests, all of them, meaning that the attack on Yemen will grind on pointlessly until the humanitarian crisis arouses the attention of the UN Security Council and a political solution and ceasefire are reached.
It was astonishing to note that the Saudi US Ambassador tried to claim the attack on Yemen was legal under Un article 51, this was a worthless and ridiculous claim as Section 51 refers to the threat of an armed attack on the state. If the Houthi fighters were all lined up on the border poised to invade Saudi Arabia, they could invoke Article 51, there was no threat to Saudi Arabia, the Houthis were not attacking or planning to attack Saudi Arabia there is no basis to invoke Article 51.
Saudi Arabia represents wealthy and well connected backwardness and ignorance in the mode of Government. SLavery was outlawed in 1962. All the Saudi pretensions to leadership ring hollow due to the fact that a corrupt, sectarian monarchy with a policy of selling out to the West can never represent the future of any region. The House of Saud represents a corrupt and decrepit past that desperately clings to power no matter what. That is the one true goal of the House of Saud, to stay in power.
The Iranian government seeks to represent the post colonial or anti Imperial trend in the region. The invasion of Iraq was a huge boost to Iran’s regional position, replacing the hostile Iraqi Sunni nationalist government of the Ba’ath party woth Shia parties, all of whom have a very positive relationship with Iran. The implications of this were huge because Iran already had long term strong allies in power in Syria and with a high degree of influence in Lebanon, The Iraq invasion thus created a vast land bridge of Iranian influence reaching from the Iran border with Afghanistan to the East to the Mediterranean coast of Lebanon,
This situation was intolerable to certain parties and more than anything else, the destabilisation of Syria appears to have been an attempt from Israel and Saudi Arabia to counter this Israel.
Israel’s energies are directed towards provoking every possible disunity and enmity inside the Arab world. Extremists are offered lavish support. Anything that can be used to portray the Arab world as being violent and backwards is promoted. Anything that can distract from Israel’s daily crimes is promoted. Any who oppose either Iran,Syria or Hezbollah are supported.
The United States.
The US appears to have several different and contradictory foreign policies in the Middle East today. This presumably reflects internal power struggles underway in the US between the Israel firsters, as represented by almost all the Republican party, and the “realists” a less aggressive imperial faction represented by the President and actualised in the Iran nuclear deal and the decision to stop trying to overthrow the Government of Syria.
The Israel firsters are a simple group, they believe in Israel and war and especially wars for Israel.
The “realist” faction, they also believe in war, just on a smaller scale and without the occupation element. The first approach is more noxious, more racist, yet each method can lead to the destruction of nations.
Every time an African immigrant drowns in the Mediterranean, President Obama, David Cameron and Nicholas Sarkozy and the Governments of the US, UK and France all share a part of the blame.

‘45 people killed, 65 injured’: Yemen refugee camp hit by airstrike — RT News
The reaction of the Western media says it all. There is nothing but denial from them regarding the outcome of the War in the Donbass along with the fervent hope that the ceasefire fails and that the Ukraine military will be sent back to face yet another pointless defeat as has happened since the failure of the September ceasefire.Still, if things don’t work out, well they can just make stuff up.
The encircled Ukraine troops in Debalstseve have either withdrawn or surrendered en masse today in what the Ukraine President Poroshenko predictably described as a “planned withdrawal”. A lie so silly and childish that to even call it a lie is redundant. Dishonesty is the rule when it comes to Ukraine government communications.
Debaltseve is a key transport hub inside the Donetsk Oblast that sits almost halfway between Donetsk and Luhansk, the other surviving Novorussian “Republic” The large force of Ukraine troops in Debaltseve, as many as 9000 have been slowly surrounded over a series of weeks. A deal regarding their fate could not be made in Minsk, as part of the overall peace deal because the Ukraine leadership would not ever admit that a large formation of their troops had been surrounded. The whole situation is a replay of the Ilovaisk nightmare of August 2014. The Novorussians had taken it and were poised to deliver the coup de grace and the Ukraine leadership would not make a deal for their people because of their pride and many died as a direct result.
The latest catastrophic defeat for the Ukraine Government forces means that the Novorussian Republics have achieved their objectives and their hold on the Donbass has survived everything that the Western backed Kiev puppet government has been able to throw at them since the Donbass conflict began in the first half of 2014. The people of the Donbass region and the Ukraine military have each paid a high human price for the futile Kiev attempts to dislodge them and it can only be hoped that the illusions will be wiped from the eyes of the Kiev government and their Western backers and they will assimilate the fact that Russia has chosen to impose neutrality upon the Ukraine and that Russia has the military and political assets to achieve this and there is nothing the likes of Samantha Power, Victoria Nuland or any of the other deluded ideologues of the State Department nor the warmongers John McCain and Lindsay Graham in the US Senate can do about it.
Massive Suffering in the Donbass region.
The Official death toll from the War is listed as more than 5500 dead. The official refugee tally is at around one million people. The majority of whom have fled to Russia, which says a lot about their perceptions of the war and the Ukrainian state under junta control. The extent of the Military casualties on each side in the war are rather unclear, but it is very clear that since August 2014 the Novorussian forces have defeated the Ukraine Government forces at every turn.
Ukraine Government threw their men away in the hope of NATO rescue.
The treatment of the Ukraine forces by the Kiev junta has been quite disgraceful. Once it became clear that large scale NATO support would not be forthcoming, that Ukraine was powerless to stop the transferral of weapons from Russia to the Donbass region and the Ukraine military were facing a better trained and equipped force than the Ukraine government forces the Kiev government needed to accept this and call a halt to hostilities. Instead they continued throwing their people away in the futile hope that if the Ukraine Government and their Western handlers complained long enough about the Russian support for the Eastern Republics the West would deliver the Ukraine the support required for them to prevail militarily. Poroshenko literally seems to have been sending his soldiers out to get killed in the hope that their deaths would push the propaganda effort over the line and the West would magically step in and save the situation.
The hubristic and deluded actions of the US State Department and their lackeys bear overwhelming responsibility for this war and the suffering of the people of the Donbass region. The engineered coup in February 2014 that sought to violently drag the Ukraine into the Western orbit and on the path to NATO membership has backfired, badly. The US officials who are the real authors of the Donbass war will of course never for a second admit responsibility nor acknowledge the consequences of their actions. It is not their way.
The Americans will all walk away from the catastrophe they engineered but the fates will not be so kind to the Ukraine leadership. In the days and months to come there will be a terrible reckoning I expect for the likes of Poroshenko and Yatseniuk and no Medals will ever compensate for the losses they have inflicted on their own Military so needlessly.

The Meaning of the Beheading Hoax.
I loathe this type of material and never seek it out, only after it became obvious that the video did not depict a murder did I watch and download the so called execution video. I was astonished to discover that the “execution” video does not depict any actual violence or evidence of death, indeed the “money shot” in this evil snuff porn is a transparent fraud. It appears as though they have a CPR dummy with a couple of blood packs and heavy use of Photoshop. The photograph of the dead James Foley is obviously manipulated at first sight, detailed analysis is not required, it’s almost intentionally insulting.The video appears to have been created on a soundstage,and it must be assumed that Mr. Foley was not killed, because, if he had been killed their would be no need to photoshop the only image that depicts his beheadedness. A bloodied head is placed on a body, the body appears to be a dummy, the head is photoshopped, the body and the head are both without any signs of a neck. The neck has completely disappeared. At face value, it seems like the “executioner” is an actor, presumably but not necessarily working for British Intelligence. The same assumption is valid for Mr. Foley, he is almost certainly, 99.9999% a CIA operative.
British intelligence have a history of manufactured beheadings, as they appear to be the authors of the Lee Rigby fake beheading street theatre of May 2013.
James Foley FAKE Execution – Video Analysis Reveals the Truth
The criticism appears to be leading to fear from the opposition.
Thus: Watching James Foley beheading video may be a terror offence, Met police warn | Mail Online
‘We would like to remind the public that viewing, downloading or disseminating extremist material within the UK may constitute an offence under terrorism legislation.’
Government sources today confirmed that David Cameron has seen a full version of the video following his return to Downing Street.
Presumably the Met will now proceed to caution Prime Minister Cameron, as he has been admitted to watch the video which “may constitute an offence under terrorism legislation.”
So we have another act of psychological warfare against the people of the West and the Muslim world. The operating assumption would be that the US, Israeli, British, French and probably many other Western intelligence agencies have been running the “Islamic State” operation all the way.
The bizarre paradox is that because the “Islamic State” group is being set up as the next patsy candidate for a massive attack in the United States, the right thing for the US military to do is to use their air-force to crush the group because it will vastly reduce the pool of patsies and make the false flag much harder to conduct.
The rational thing to do would be to try and end the Syrian Civil war through negotiations, give amnesty to the rebel fighters, stop the fighting and focus on the “IS” group, yet maniacal Neocons are actually trying to use the “IS” threat as a pretext to attack the government of Syria! It’s astonishing. The naked psychosis of actually blaming the Syrian Government for the presence of fighters we and our allies in Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. armed and sent into their country is astonishing even by the standards of the serial liars of our controlled media.
Incredibly, CNN were actually caught running an “IS” psy- op in Ferguson Missouri, where protests continue and are meeting police state tactics almost a fortnight after unarmed black teenager Mike Brown was shot six times by a police officer, including an execution style sixth bullet fired into the teens head.

The point is, that this group if left undefeated, will pose a grave threat, because they are the patsies, the loud mouthed “synthetic” Muslims framing themselves for whatever atrocity the “Secret Team” come up with next as the United States police begin to unmask themselves as the committed slaves of the New World Order. Obviously that is not going to be true of all, or even a majority of US police on an individual level. This is the institutional view, and subscription to these views are the price of joining the “new feudal enforcement” gangs.
There is some information that can be gleaned from this lie operation.
1. They are clearly working from a script, and on that script there are clearly a checklist of things they are going to do.
2. Given the consistent threats towards the USA, and frequent claims by the “IS” today to have fighters in the United States, along with the implicit threats from former Vice President Cheney of nuclear attack on the USA. There is an overwhelming likelihood- far short of certainty, that one of the items towards the bottom of the list is some type of “mega terror” attack in the United States.
3. This has in many ways been the year of the Trident. The trident on the Ukraine coat of arms.
The Trident of Malaysian Airlines.
Three prongs, I think that there is a very strong possibility that they will not stop at two Malaysian Airlines jets this year. A “suicide hijacking” blamed on “IS” would make a fitting end to a year of terror attacks against the Malaysian flag carrier apparently motivated by rage at the Kuala Lumpur Tribunal findings of guilt against Israel for genocide made in November 2013.
This will teach them to run their nasty and subversive little show trials telling the truths about Western crimes.
4. One target, a target that seems absurd in scale, but that does appear to have been foreshadowed, is the Hoover Dam. A more realistic target would be the Sears towers. This is pure speculation without solid foundation.
5. This group have already been used as a “false flag”. The ISIS Israeli teen kidnapping responsibility claim indicates that the “ISIS” device is being used by Israeli intelligence.. The evidence, albeit circumstantial, indicates that it was Israeli security forces who kidnapped and murdered the three young Israeli settlers. The Israeli police appear to have engaged in an obvious “stand down” when the attack happened, with the police operator dismissing the emergency call made by one of the teen victims was a hoax and ignoring it. No action whatsoever was taken for five hours after the distress call. Two interesting features of the phone call that stand out are that the kidnapper says to the hostages “get down, get down” speaking Hebrew.Another thing was that the sounds of gunfire were clearly audible on the recording of the distress call. A number of shots are fired and the teens are apparently murdered in the back of a car.” The Mossad Chief speculated about a near identical scenario only a week prior to the event. The incriminating Israeli number-plates were removed from the burned out vehicle that turned up out of nowhere and was said to have been used in the kidnapping and murder. So the ISIS claim of responsibility, when Hamas are the designated guilty party, and some part of the Israeli Security Structure are responsible is more than a little suspicious.
It appears not to be the Mossad Chief or that group but one of the internal agencies. There was an internal power struggle within the Israeli security apparatus, the kidnapping was a wicked riposte from the hard liners against the moderates who apparently included the Mossad Chief, ISIS-linked Muslim group takes responsibility for kidnapping three teens, including one American, in Israel : Jihad Watch
6. The media are not hyping this group for fun, and the goal is much broader than a few air strikes in Iraq or Syria. If an attack is imminent, it is likely that “IS” fighters will begin making time and place specific threats. The New World Order don’t want the police to fight the people. They want the people to cheer for and identify with the police state. Like they appeared to do after the Boston bombings, they want the people to demand the police state.On;y terror can create the right mindset. It is all doomed,it’s not going to work, but they are not about to lay down after so many decades of effort.
