YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!

Farcical False Flag Threatens World War Three.

Russia and the US on the Brink of Armed Conflict.

The Battle for Eastern Ghouta is over, Syria and her allies have reclaimed the six-year long insurgent stronghold in a two month military operation that has provoked an extremely dangerous tantrum from the West and their allies that has the US and Russia in a rhetorical state of war and seemingly on the path to armed conflict.

The US, Britain and France have promised a strong joint response to the preposterous lie they are perpetrating of the “chemical attack” in Eastern Ghouta’s now evacuated insurgent enclave, Douma.

STUNNING evidence from BBC journalist exposing White Helmets staging chemical attacks in Douma

Make no mistake, there was no attack, merely a very crude, childish hoax

The alleged attack did not happen, not by any hand. The complete lack of physical evidence or witness testimony of any attack from anyone in Douma makes that perfectly clear.

Even someone at the BBC noticed that the event was staged.

BBC producer Riam Dalati noticed that the same bodies had been used to stage different scenes of the manufactured and fictional chemical attack. The tweet was soon deleted. (Source)

More importantly, Russian military investigators traveled to the hospital in which the event was staged and found…no victims, no eyewitnesses, no signs of any attack with any toxic substance at all.

TASS: World – Doctors in Syria’s Douma refute reports of patients suffering from chemical poisoning

This quote from Tass encapsulates the complete lack of evidence in Douma on all fronts very well.

“Syrian doctors in Douma have dismissed the rumors they had received patients suffering from chemical poisoning. In an interview to the media doctor Yaser Abdel Majid, of the city hospital, said that they had never received patients with chemical poisoning either last weekend or since the beginning of hostilities in Syria,” the reconciliation center said.

Earlier, staffers of the Russian center for reconciliation had questioned doctors and other personnel of Douma’s hospital. The medics said that “all those who had received their medical aid had ordinary injuries, fractures and fragmentation and gunshot wounds.”

Eyewitness Accounts.

There has been confirmation of this from ambulance driver Ahmed Saur, who has worked in one of Douma’s districts for the past several years and by virtue of his profession sees the patients doctors go to.

“On April 6-8 we had not a single patient suffering from chemical poisoning. Only ordinary war wounds,” he said.

Earlier Syrian Red Crescent Society doctors told the media all rumors about patients with chemical poisoning were not true.

Also, the reconciliation center said “militants leaving the city have been questioned and none of them knew anything about chemical weapons allegedly used against them.”.

This story is ultimately as realistic as if the Western media now reported on fierce clashes in Douma with the insurgents of Jaish al Islam fighting to the last man and inflicting severe casualties on the “regime” Army when in reality, the final batch are in the process of evacuation!

That fact is every bit as concrete as the fact that the doctors working in the Douma hospital reported to the Russian military investigators sent to the precise hospital depicted as an attack site in the Jaish al Islam/ White helmet video depicting the alleged attack and discovered no traces of any chemical weapon having been used, no patients in the hospital as a result of any chemical attack, and no dead bodies anywhere who died in the clearly fraudulent and fictional “attack”.

Russian military investigators in Douma hospital cannot find any signs whatsoever of any chemical attack. No victims, dead, eyewitnesses nor forensic traces of toxic substances.

The claim from the Syrian American Medical Society of 500 casualties in Douma on April 7th, like the white Helmets, and the insurgents themselves, the SAMS is a cynical propaganda outfit heavily funded by a Western Government. ALl of the supposed sources for this, literally are on the payroll of France, US, Britain, Israel or Saudi Arabia. (Source)

Even the departing insurgents of Jaish al islam claimed no knowledge of any chemical weapon incident, although there is an overwhelming likelihood that when they arrive in Idlib they will become participants upon their masters orders.

One of the four thousand people released from the captivity of Jaish al islam as part of the evacuation deal related being made to participate in a faux chemical attack filmed in 2015.

“A Syrian civilian who was freed from Jaish al-Islam captivity in Douma on Monday, recounted how the militant group had allegedly forced him to participate in a “pretend” chemical weapons attack scene that they then filmed, back in 2015. “We went [to Douma] and they [Jaish al-Islam] gathered us and forced us to take our shirts off, and said ‘the army is about to use chemical weapons,'” Mohammed Khudr Mousa stated from Salamiyah on Wednesday. “‘You should pretend chemical weapons were used against you and that you cannot breathe. We will pour water on you to revive you,'” he recalled his captors saying. Khudr Mousa went on to describe how a doctor held captive by the militant group was allegedly “forced to fill syringes, pretending that he was injecting us to revive us.” “They [Jaish al-Islam] poured water on us, and forced us to pretend we were unconscious according to their wishes. They brought a camera and filmed us,” he alleged. In an off-camera comment, he told Ruptly that he was not able to say whether the video he was part of was published. ” (Source)

That description closely matches what is depicted in the White Helmets/Jaish al islam footage privdied to a baying Western media in support of the work of fiction they were jointly creating.

Forget about facts, we are the West!

But none of that matters at this point. The US navy is heading to the eastern Mediterranean, the Russian navy are conducting a two-week live fire exercise in the Mediterranean, one mistake or carefully staged provocation is all that it is going to take to propel Russia and the US into a shooting war that could easily escalate into Armageddon.

What is happening is actually rather simple, the jihadists have failed so now the West is going to fight a conventional war against Syria, Iran and Russia themselves.

The defeat that is being inflicted upon the West, Israel and Saudi Arabia, simply cannot be borne. Therefore as the insurgency fades into history they are to be replaced by the armed forces of the US, UK, France and whomever else is willing.

The Saker: “What price will mankind have to pay for the collapse of the Empire?”

Russia has warned of “grave consequences” should the US and allies attack Syria on the back of their ridiculous, despicable and transparent lie. But it seems that the Western leadership and policy elite are suffering from psychotic delusions of such magnitude that they do not understand the dangerous consequences this course of action may initiate.

Even those who expressed some skepticism about the fictional chemical attack (was it Sarin, Chlorine or both?) and the wisdom of a military response like Tucker Carlson seem utterly unaware of the risks involved. These people still believe that the potential costs of any operation can be safely assessed alongside Libya, Iraq and other recent adventures, but the situation is quite different.

South Front graphic depicts US naval assets currently located in and around the Eastern Mediterranean. In around ten days they are expected to be joined by a carrier group.

The US President reiterated the threat and plainly stated that the US is going to attack Syrian with missiles in a 4am tweet. Mika Brzezinski on MSNBC’s Morning Joe offered an unintentionally comical response to the tweet, stating that “at least he is focused on Russia” (Source)

It really doesn’t matter who is pretending to be the President, that is a con. Still it is hard to ignore the fact that this is a piece of human garbage.

Trump then, minutes later issued a seemingly contradictory, “conciliatory” tweet towards Russia and then returned to form, whining that the FBI and Democrats were at fault for the strained Russia US relationship as though he were a mere onlooker rather than an up to his neck in it participant.

The tweet issued by the US President shortly after threatening Russia directly. Stop making sense!
In tweet number three the President returns to a favourite conversational theme-narcissistic whining and deflection.

None of it made any sense and the truth is that the ruling elite will use the US military to do what they want regardless of any President. Not that Trump offers anything resembling resistance, it is just that it would scarcely matter even if he was capable of doing so.

Either the US and  it’s allies will see sense and do nothing; Russia will make discretion the better part of valor and let the US attack Syria, exposing them as a paper tiger and nonentity, or something absolutely terrible is about to happen.

What is going to happen next?

As genuinely disturbing and truly disgusting as the developing situation is, the prospects of a large-scale military conflict between the US and Russia in the near future is far from inevitable.

As the Saker noted, neither the US or Russia are looking for thermonuclear war but the infantile and delusional mindset of the current Western leadership make armed conflict with Russia almost inevitable at some point and once it starts, it is entirely possible that mutual escalation can very quickly become mutual destruction.

SouthFront published an analysis of the most likely potential scenarios any escalation may take.

Main Scenarios Of Possible Military Escalation If US Strikes Syria

It seems a sober and realistic assessment, although I would add that along with conflict between the US and Russia, a regional war involving some combination of Saudi Arabia and Israel against some combination of Iran and Hezbollah is also very, very possible in the coming weeks.

The longer the leaders of the Western criminal faction (Italy and Germany have opted out) hesitate the more the evidence of their lies is developed and the more embarrassment they will face if they continue on the delusional path they are on. The farcical nature of this story is not going to avoid the light of day for long, even the walking dead are going to realise this is pure nonsense at some point in the near future.

An Accurate Forecast and an Unmistakable Threat.

Another ridiculous element of this story is that on numerous occasions during the past several months the Russian military have told the world that a false flag chemical attack was being prepared in Eastern Ghouta.

Following a typically deluded and infantile speech at the UN from the US representative Nikki Haley, Chief of the Russian General Staff Valery Gerasimov outlined in detail on March 13th the scenario that is now unfolding and also clearly stated that the Russian military are embedded within the Syrian military in Syria, any attack on the Syrian military will be tantamount to an attack on the Russian military and in this case Russia will target both the missiles and the launch platforms for the missiles.

He is clearly saying that “if you attack the Syrian military we will hit your missiles, jets and ships”.

At that point, the situation will be very close to cataclysmic, and all because the West, Israel and Saudi Arabia cannot accept the defeat that is being inflicted upon their proxy army in Syria.

This statement may be responsible for dissuading the US. Trump after all is used to humiliation, he does it to himself everyday and he was the only person who was foolish enough to flat-out state they were going to attack Syria.

The Battle of Eastern Ghouta.

In order to understand just how farcical and pathetic these latest lies are, it must be understood that the battle for Eastern Ghouta was over to the point that other militant factions were already evacuating Douma.

The Syrian military and allies had no motive to change what they had been doing for the last six to eight weeks, during which a well conceived and executed operation had seen the previously impregnable enclave overrun with relative ease.

In a matter of weeks the six year old enclave was split into three isolated pockets by a  Syrian/Russian military operation that by April 7th, had reclaimed 87% of the enclave, reducing a 110km square pocket to a threadbare and doomed 14km square.

During the month of March militants and their families were completely evacuated from the other major districts of Ghouta, Harasta and Jobar.

Battle of Harasta (2017–18)

Parts of Eastern Ghouta have now been completely cleared and life is returning to normal, schools are reopening. The very notion that the Syrian Government has used chemical weapons in the enclave is preposterous and contemptible.There is no possibility that the Syrian military used anything other than explosives and incendiaries when they attacked Douma on Saturday April 7th, following a breakdown in evacuation  negotiations with the largest insurgent faction in Douma, the Saudi backed Jaish al Islam.

Following a single day of ground operations against their positions on April 8th, Jaish al Islam returned to the negotiating table and are now in the process of being evacuated, having released the thousands of people, soldiers and civilians they had imprisoned.

Conclusion- A  Sobering Realisation.

This most childish and silly lie at this time brings a most sobering realisation.

The owners of the West genuinely believe that they own reality, they can tell any lie and do anything on the back of it and there is nothing that we, the people of the West can do about it although I would urge people to contact their local representative and politely but forcefully express their displeasure at the proposed military operation,  but both the US Congress and the British Parliament are almost certainly going to be bypassed as the Western elites and their political and media prostitutes rush headlong towards cataclysm.

Anything that may help is worth trying but please understand that there is no hope within the current political system as it operates in the West, nor is there any obvious viable alternative.

It does not matter who we vote for, that is for certain and anyone who has not recognised and expressed this at this stage is either a dupe or a con artist.

Obama and Trump were only whores, that is all they ever were. Hell awaits them both and anyone who says anything positive about either is either a shill or a hapless fool. Or both, but the identity of the President is irrelevant to the policy outcome, the only question is the brand of lies they are expected to tell. That is the only thing that is at stake in the modern election.

The other very troubling understanding is that these people are never going to stop until they are forcibly halted.

They only know how to lie and kill. It is like a massive, dysfunctional evil robot that only lies and orders killing is sitting behind the entire post Cold War Western world. Not only will it not stop until the entire Middle east is destroyed, it now sadly seems that it will not stop until the West itself is destroyed.

This is a situation of almost complete megalomania, they have been lying so much for so long that they no longer know they are lying.

The combination of military power and childish delusion may well be the catalyst that triggers the end for this current world civilisation.

Discontent in Donbass

Marinka firefight June 2015 from CCTV.
CCTV footage of Marinka firefight- June 2015 .

July 12th, 2015..

The Situation.

The situation appears to be that the people of the Donbass region are trapped within the reality that Russia has achieved it’s goals and is seeking to move on from the Ukraine crisis whilst the Ukraine Government and their Western backers remain enraged by the many humiliations the Russian President has inflicted upon them over the past several years and are not willing to let the war come to an end.

The lives and interests of the people of the Donbass are clearly of secondary interest to all external parties to the conflict.

Dejan Beric interview on situation in DPR

The best recent explanation for what is currently happening is contained in this short video made by a Novorussian Serbian volunteer named Dejan Beric

The Minsk II agreement is being broken, the ceasefire never really happened, and at least two hundred deaths have occurred since the Minsk II agreement came into place, but intense fighting is largely confined to two small areas, the villages of Marinka and Shirokino that are partially held by both sides and the combatants are very close, within only hundreds of metres of each other.
Dejan Beric explains that shelling is taking place right across the contact line but the intense fighting is largely confined to these areas.

Ukraine: “Heavy weapons spotted in gov-controlled areas”- OSCE chief

Even the OCSE sleepwalkers recently noticed that the Ukraine military have violated the Minsk accords by returning their heavy weaponry to the front lines and using it with frequent civilian deaths . Deputy Chief of the OCSE team Alexander Hug had a curious choice of words to describe the situation.
“This build up of heavy weapons along the contact lines also leads to more destruction deaths and injuries to the civilian population.”
It is strange choice of words because it refers to the “build up” of Weapons as being the cause of the damage rather than their use.

[eng subs] “Vostok” brigade soldier Niemets [German] appeal to DPR command

When the large scale fighting ended in February the forces of Novorussia were achieving significant gains and causing severe losses to the Ukraine military. In the post Minsk 2 fighting the Ukraine military appear to have the initiative, previously secure positions of the DPR such as Donetsk Airport have come under renewed attack in recent weeks.
This sad video made by a German member of the Vostok battalion called “Niemets” alludes to a lack of training as the cause for the “results that have been seen.” as the soldier pleads for better training from the leadership of the Donetsk People’s Republic.

The Dawning of a Bitter Reality.

It seems to be slowly sinking in that the gains the Novorussian rebels made were highly dependent on the support of the Russian Federation and the RF has achieved all it needs in Eastern Ukraine, the RF now has the ability to prevent the Ukraine from joining NATO by either military or political means.

This appears to have been the goal of the Russian federation all along as indicated by their actions and so all the talk about the “new Hitler’ Putin “threatening Europe” with aggression was simply the typically “broad” and infantile Western propaganda nonsense heard on almost every issue from the controlled media.

[eng subs] Putin’s childhood friend, now living in Gorlovka: “RF has betrayed us, UA leave us alone”

The Opinion of Putin’s Childhood Friend.
In recent weeks a video appeared on the Kazzura Youtube channel titled “Putin’s childhood friend now living in Gorlovka RF has betrayed us, UA leave us alone” The video features an interview with a former Putin friend and schoolmate named Vladimir Alexandrovich Venzin.
The majority of the interview is an unremarkable retelling of Venzin’s connection with Putin, with the information that Putin wanted to be a spy as very young boy the only memorable part.

In the last quarter of the interview the subject matter changes to current events.

“Well, I have always been proud of my acquaintance with Volodya (Vladimir Putin) of our friendship. Just a year ago it was like that.”

“Now my opinion about him has changed dramatically of course. And it’s not just my opinion that has changed but that of all Donetsk residents. If just a year ago people were praising him like some god, then now people are cursing him. Because he has provoked such a situation here, provoked a war. A very real, full scale war and then “fled into the bushes.”
“If you compare what he said in spring 2014 to what he says now.. It’s like two completely different people.. It just hurt that we were used as cover for the operation of the“annexation of Crimea.”
“They just used people “in blind” as it is called. “
“But this, I think it’s dishonourable from Russia.and whereas a year ago we would all switch our television’s on every day waiting to hear that that Russia has started sending it’s troops.
Today people simply spit whenever they hear the name of Russia. Because Russia has betrayed Donbass.
Whereas a year ago people said that “Russia does not abandon it’s people.” then now they’re silent “as loud as possible.” about it.” (They speak loudly of other subjects to avoid mentioning this unpleasant truth)
This stunning denunciation is followed by an analysis of the motives behind the change.

“There might be many reasons here, his (Putin’s) rhetoric has changed dramatically….maybe some Russian oligarchs are pressing him or perhaps he submitted to the blackmail from the United States?
That is unlikely however as he is quite a strong willed person.. I do not know the reasons nor do I want to guess about them.”

The Interview Concludes with Vladimir Alexandrovich Venzin making a plea for Russian military assistance and a denunciation of the Ukraine Government.

“The situation is critical. Diplomatic measures do not help here. It should be done like Abkhazia here.” (Abkhazia is the largely unrecognised breakaway pro-Russian republic that is formally part of Georgia that Georgia attacked in 2008 following extensive provocation, enabling a crushing Russian military response where the RF Air force destroyed the military forces of Georgia over several weeks of a completely one sided battle. In the Ukraine this would translate as the Russian Air Force destroying all the Ukraine military units East of Kiev. The leader of Georgia at the time of the 2008 Abkhazia war was Mikheil Saakashvili now bizarrely appointed the Governor of Odessa oblast, presumably on the recommendation of the USA.)
“I’d like to appeal to all Ukrainians: Leave us alone. Let us live as we want. This is not your land, it is our land and you got it only due to a mistake thanks to “Grandpa Lenin”.“

[eng subs] Vladimir Solovyov explains RF policy and situation with Donbass/refugees

The Response from the Russian federation to the Perception of Betrayal.
Vladimir Solovyov is a prominent Russian television host and journalist with a perceived closeness to the Russian Government. Solovykov recently hosted a town hall meeting for refugees from the Donbass region of Eastern Ukraine. This video is also from the Kazzura channel.
The important part of the video begins with a geeky looking young man asking Solokyov a question.suggesting that the reunion of the Donetsk residents in Russia is simply:

“Basically how (to make) it so tha Donbass residents do not feel themselves betrayed?”

Vladimir Solovyov  “You see, this is such an interesting phrase. First of all no-one betrayed them as no-one has promised them anything yet. These are crucial moments which people are imagining things to themselves. Putin said that we will not allow the conflict to be solved by force. We won’t.”
Putin said that we will not allow the humanitarian disaster so Russia sends insane amounts of humanitarian cargoes. Of course I understand everything. But I have a different question.(you said) “Donbass mustn’t feel itself betrayed.” More than… well… a million people have arrived here from Donbass. Half of them are men. No-one knows what are they doing here. Well take arms and go defend your motherland. Because it’s like you want us to arrive and die, fight for you, (crowd applauds) And you arrive here and say (pretends to be an ape) “Gimme…We are refugees.” Wait a minute, Is this your Motherland? Then fight it back. But if it’s “Give me shit, give me spoon, teach me how to eat it”, it’s something new. It’s just that people should realise some responsibility for the decisions (they have made).”
So the message is pretty clear. Be grateful for what the RF has done for you and accept that we know best.

The Reality- the Bitter Truth of Proxy Wars.
The sad truth lurking behind the Donbass war is that despite the sincerity of many of the combatants, the war was a proxy war and only one strand in a widespread power struggle between the Western war party and the Russian Federation.
The only correct policy for a mid-sized and strategically placed nation such as the Ukraine is to never ever accept that you must choose sides but seek to have positive relationships, with both the EU/West and the Russian Federation. The Ukraine should never allow itself to be drawn into either camp but should seek positive relations with both at all times.

The people of the Donbass region have suffered terribly and the sad fact is that they are and will remain trapped between the interests of the great powers engaged in the current power struggle in Eastern Europe.

Plane Operations: Korean Airlines Flight 007

The Korean Airlines Boeing 747 that flew the doomed flight 007 in 1983.
The Korean Airlines Boeing 747 that flew the doomed flight 007 in 1983.

June 14th, 2015.

Outline of the Incident.

The Widely Agreed Facts.

On September 1st, 1983 a Korean Airlines flight traveling from New York to Seoul via Anchorage, Alaska with 269 people on board was shot down by the then U.S.S.R after the flight departed from it’s flight path by hundreds of miles and encroached on Soviet airspace in the vicinity of a number of sensitive military facilities.

Wikipedia describe it thus:

Korean Airlines Flight 007

“Korean Air Lines Flight 007 (also known as KAL007 and KE007 was a scheduled Korean Air Lines flight from New York City to Seoul via Anchorage. On September 1, 1983, the airliner serving the flight was shot down by a Soviet Su-15 interceptor near Moneron Island, west of Sakhalin Island, in the Sea of Japan. The interceptor’s pilot was Major Gennadi Osipovich. All 269 passengers and crew aboard were killed, including Lawrence McDonald, Representative from Georgia in the United States House of Representatives. The aircraft was en route from Anchorage to Seoul when it flew through prohibited Soviet airspace around the time of a U.S. reconnaissance mission.”

“The Soviet Union initially denied knowledge of the incident,[2] but later admitted the shootdown, claiming that the aircraft was on a spy mission.[3] The Politburo said it was a deliberate provocation by the United States[4] to test the Soviet Union’s military preparedness, or even to provoke “
“The Soviet military suppressed evidence sought by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) investigation, such as the flight data recorders,[6] which were released eight years later after the collapse of the Soviet Union “

It is interesting to note that Wikipedia characteristically omit the flight’s divergence from the civil flight path from the primary narrative.

This is a central fact but clearly one that the author of the Wikipedia piece is keen to place in the background.

The fact that the flight’s final departure point was Alaska meant that the US NTSB had a responsibility to investigate the incident. Wikispooks who have a very high quality piece on the MH17 disaster,  have little to add on KAL007 beyond the strange fact that the N.T.S.B were removed from the investigation in what was both an unprecedented event and also contrary to US Law .

Korean Air Lines Flight 007 – Wikispooks

“the NTSB chief in Alaska, James Michelangelo, received an (illegal) order from the NTSB in Washington at the behest of the US State Department requiring that they terminate their investigation and send all documents relating to it to Washington, where the State Department would now conduct their own investigation”

The US Response-Ruthless Exploitation.

The Reagan administration responded to the KAL007 event it  by ruthlessly and cynically milking and manipulating the grief of the people of the US and the world for propaganda purposes.

It was soon established conclusively through the translation of the intercepts of the transmissions from the Soviet SU15 that the USSR believed the flight was a military flight and that was the reason for the tragedy, the plane flew wildly from the civilian air route, intersected with a US RC135 spy mission, was mistaken for a US spy mission as a result and was downed on that basis.

This became known to the US administration soon after the event but they chose not to share this information with the broader public. As James Bamford writes in his LA Times review of Seymour Hersh and R.W Johnson’s works on the case:

“the U.S. Air Force knew almost immediately that the Soviets believed that they had attacked an American military intruder, not a civilian airliner; and that American leaders, most notably Secretary of State Shultz, misrepresented the situation because it served political purposes to portray the Soviets as deliberate murderers of civilians.”

When President Reagan spoke to the people of the US and the world about the event four days later, he knew full well that the shoot down was a tragic accident but chose to pursue the ridiculous claim that the USSR shot the plane down out of pure malevolence and with the knowledge that it was a civilian airliner in order to maintain the emotional impact of the propaganda.

U.S President Ronald Reagan addressed the US on September 5th, 1983.

“My fellow Americans I am coming before you tonight about the Korean airline massacre, the attack by the Soviet Union against 269 innocent men, women, and children aboard an unarmed Korean passenger plane. This crime against humanity must never be forgotten, here or throughout the world.”

Reagan chose to lie to the American people and abuse the understandable grief they were feeling for political gain. This is a pattern that recurs to this day.

The fact that the incident had been an accident and the US Government knew that it was an accident emerged within weeks of the event, but this was long after the propaganda message had been absorbed by a credulous public.

According to Seymour Hersh the goodwill the disaster created was helpful to US efforts to station long range Pershing missiles in Western Europe.

Previously these plans had met with stiff resistance from a European public keen to avoid being any more of a nuclear target but after the KAL007 propaganda triumph the protests were small and muted.*

President Reagan’s Address to the Nation on the Soviet Attack on a Korean Airliner (KAL 007)

the USSR Response- Counterproductive at best.

The response of the USSR was anger, indignation and a cover up that played entirely into the hands of the low and dishonest Washington D.C propagandists. The principle cause of the Soviet cover up was probably the fact that KAL007 was attacked near the edge of Soviet airspace and actually crashed in international waters, having continued to progress in descent for at least 12 minutes after the attack when it disappeared from radar.

The Context of the Event- Psy-Ops and RC 135 Reconnaissance Flights.

During the Cold war, the US routinely conducted reconnaissance missions using a converted Boeing 707 ( the precursor to the 747) aircraft called the RC 135. These missions would probe at the edges of Soviet airspace and regularly conduct minor incursions into Soviet airspace causing fighter jets to be scrambled before returning to international airspace.

These operations were but one part of a large scale psychological warfare campaign that the US was conducting against the USSR at the time which generally translated into conducting minor provocations in order to irritate the Soviets and/or elicit a response that would be then used to “catapult the propaganda” effort the US was conducting against the Soviet Union.

Context of ‘Mid-September, 1983: Secretary of State Shultz Lambasts Soviet Foreign Minister over Korean Airlines Shootdown’
“The US begins launching what the Pentagon calls “psychological operations,” or PSYOPS, against the USSR. The operations consist in part of military exercises designed to agitate and frighten the USSR into believing the US might be preparing for a military assault. Few outside of the White House and the Pentagon’s top officials—and Soviet officials, of course—know about the series of provocative exercises. Undersecretary of Defense Fred Ikle will later recall: “It was very sensitive. Nothing was written down about it, so there would be no paper trail.” The idea behind the operations is to keep the Soviets off-balance about what, if anything, the US might do. It also is designed to probe for gaps and vulnerabilities in the Soviets’ early warning intelligence system. General Jack Chain, a Strategic Air Command (SAC) commander, will later recall: “Sometimes we would send bombers over the North Pole and their radars would click on. Other times fighter-bombers would probe their Asian or European periphery.” [Fischer, 3/19/2007]

The flightpath of KA007 intersected with the flight path of US reconnaissance missions being flown by RC135 aircraft which was an almost identical aircraft when viewed from beneath as the Soviet pilot viewed KAL007.

This map depicts the planned flight path of 007 and it's diversion.
This map depicts the planned flight path of 007 and it’s diversion.

The Mystery: Massive Deviation from the planned flight path.

KA007 deviated from the regular planned flightpath by a maximum distance of 365 miles / 584 kilometres for reasons that have never been explained.

The U.S.S.R claimed the flight was undertaking a reconnaissance mission on behalf of the U.S. There is no hard proof to support this claim but the almost identical unexplained deviation of a Korean Airlines passenger jet over Soviet Airspace in 1978 indicates that this claim is likely correct despite the fact that all Soviet claims relating to this flight are severely tainted by the fact that the Soviet government suppressed the existence of the Flight Data Recorders for almost a decade after the event.

The flight’s departure from it’s planned path is the central mystery and primary cause of the disaster and the  Soviet paranoia about US surveillance operations against them in the area combined to cause the  tragic mistake.

Competing Hypotheses.

The KAL007 disaster was the subject of extremely intense debates that mirror those about events such as 911, MH17 and MH370 today with many claims that the aptly named Flight 007 was part of a US surveillance operation against the Soviet Union.. There are many references from the 1980s to the case being the “second biggest conspiracy story” behind the JFK case.

In the intervening years the event has greatly diminished in prominence due to the (provisional) end of the cold war and  also the onslaught of far bigger and more obvious “deep events” and false flag attacks such as Oklahoma City, WTC 93 and September 11th, 2001.

No less than Seymour Hersh wrote about a book about KA007, apparently to debunk the “conspiracy claims” of David Pearson who wrote a book named  “KAL007:the Cover Up” and British academic R.W Johnson who wrote another titled “Shootdown 007 and the American Role” about the incident.

The Seymour Hersh Position.

“The Target Is Destroyed” Analysis – eNotes.com
The Seymour Hersh account of this event actually resembles to a stunning degree the basic pattern of his work on the bin Laden raid, it is a critical account that largely supports the US version of events, but without the outrageous propaganda elements.
The Seymour Hersh thesis is a very obvious limited hang out designed to obscure the truth. At first glance the description of events seems credible, but further analysis makes it clear that his work on this case, although full of merit, is a deliberate attempt to obscure the truth by creating a more widely palatable and altogether more adult account than the trashy and low US government response of September 1983.

Hersh states flatly that the US government knew the event was an accident soon after it took place but chose not to share this knowledge with the public and in the interests of the Western propaganda effort, continued to pretend that the event was a deliberate massacre rather than an accident.

Beyond that Hersh affirms the major elements of the US Government story with the finding that there is no evidence to support the alternative hypothesis of an intelligence mission gone wrong. Hersh frankly admits that he has no explanation for the flight’s radical deviation.from the designated R20 flightpath and can only speculate that crew error was the cause with the absolutely farcical “fuel saving short cut” as his second best explanation..

Dangerous Cold War Events: Seymour Hersh on Korean Air Lines Flight 007 – Interview (1986)

The Western Opposition Position.
The other Western position posits that the aircraft must have been conducting some type of spy mission or deliberate provocation because the Captain of the flight could not possibly be so incompetent as to incorrectly program his in flight computer to such a degree accidentally. The crux of it is that the pilot must have known that he was flying off course, must have done so deliberately and the best explanation for him doing that deliberately was a US spy mission.
This was the position taken by British academic R.W Johnson in his book on KA007 “Shootdown KAL007 and the US Role”.

This is Johnson’s attempted rebuttal of the Hersh position in a review of Hersh’s book in the London Review of Books.

R.W. Johnson reviews ‘‘The target is destroyed’’ by Seymour Hersh · LRB 23 October 1986

“First, we have to assume that 007’s pilot decided, for reasons of his own, to scrap his computerised flight plan (the fact that his scribbles on that plan suggest that he then planned the route he actually took is ignored). Then, because that meant he was rushed, we assume he made ‘a monumental error’ about his fuel, taking on five extra tons of the stuff – enough to crash the plane had it been fully loaded. (But there was no rush – take-off was actually delayed for 40 minutes – and the pilot filled in one set of papers correctly, one incorrectly.) We then assume that the crew decided not to use the pre-programmed flight-plan cassette with which they had been issued, instead opting to program their three flight computers manually. We further assume that one of these computers was then wrongly programmed with a 10-degree error (we’re not just assuming a mistake but one very specific mistake – a 9-degree or 11-degree error won’t do), and when the other computers threw up their inevitable warning of this error, that the error was resolved by switching off the warning light and leaving the error intact. We then assume that the pilot, despite his reputation as KAL’s No 1 and a ‘human computer’, disregarded the obligatory checking procedure designed to ensure that the computers had been correctly programmed. Then we assume that the pilot, once aloft, made a further decision to switch over to control by his Inertial Navigational System (INS) without checking, as he should have, that he was actually on the right course.”

It seems that Johnson is primarily trying to state that it is impossible that the pilot could mistakenly travel so far from the designated flight path, this must have been intentional and therefore the flight must have been involved in an intelligence operation. It seems a solid argument, but hardly devastating and I was prepared to accept the Hersh version as the best available explanation for the KAL007 tragedy until I came across the story of ANOTHER Korean Air Lines jet flying into Soviet Airspace and being targeted by the Soviet Air force, from FIVE YEARS earlier and it is the strange and closely related case of KAL902 from 1978 that provides the strongest clue as to the truth behind the downing of KAL007.

KAL902 makes a rough landing on a frozen lake in April 1978.
KAL902 makes a rough landing on a frozen lake in April 1978.

The Missing Link- KAL902, April 20th 1978.
KAL902 was a Korean Airlines 707 flying from Paris to Seoul via Anchorage that was shot down by the Soviet Air force leading to two deaths.
The plane was successfully crash landed on a frozen Russian lake and the passengers were released by the Soviet Union two days later.
The crew were detained for a week and when the pilot, Captain Kim Chang Ky was released he could offer no explanation for the incursion into Soviet Airspace.

Western fixers eventually came up with a wild tale about the pilot miscalculating his flight path and accidentally straying into Soviet airspace due to the problems caused by the instruments of navigation malfunctioning  in the vicinity of the North pole!
The story appears to be classic face saving concoction designed to mask what seems to have been an intelligence gathering operation gone wrong.

This is a summary of the Official story of KAl902.

Magnetic intruder: The strange story of Korean Air Lines Flight 902. | www.seanmunger.com

“Captain Kim abruptly changed course, making a sudden hairpin turn to the southeast. The plane continued flying in a straight line, but was now headed back toward Europe, and specifically its icy northern rim where the USSR touched Finland on the Karelian Peninsula.”

“The captain was unaware of where he was going. The course change happened almost right on top of the magnetic North Pole, and magnetic interference seems to have affected the plane’s instruments. From the air the terrain all around the Arctic looks much the same no matter where you are, so there were no visual cues that the plane was off-course.”

We are expected to believe that Korean pilots alone have unique navigational problems not experienced by the pilots of any other nation and that these massive miscalculations twice led to the accidental encroachment into Soviet airspace provoking an armed response!

It is the typical nonsense we are so used to hearing, always cloaked by the emotion of the tragedy that is ruthlessly exploited for naked political gain.

Pilot of Korean Jet Downed In Russia Fails to Explain Incident

A Washington Post article dated April 30th, 1978 details the absolutely bizarre performance of the pilot of KAL902 at his release. Kim Chang Ky spoke only through an interpreter despite being fluent in English and offered no explanation whatsoever for the plane’s divergence from it’s path nor the failure to respond to any of the communications from the Soviet fighter jets.

Another Washington Post article provides an interesting glimpse into the Soviet US relationship at the time of each of the KAL events and some possible motives for a provocation.

Plane Incidents Contain Eerie Similarities – The Washington Post

“The 1978 and 1983 incidents occurred when the two superpowers, after months of coolness, were seeking to resume arms control negotiations. On April, 20, 1978, Secretary of State Cyrus R. Vance was in Moscow discussing arms control with Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko. His visit continued despite a world outcry against Moscow.
On Friday, Secretary of State George P. Shultz said he intends to meet Gromyko in Madrid Thursday, and the Reagan administration has said it will continue bilateral arms-control efforts.”

In this case we also hear the same disingenuous line that has been repeated so many times, that “the Government wouldn’t do that to people.”

This completely misses the point that the people instructing the pilot and running the mission did not expect the flight to be completely destroyed, but reassured themselves that if it happened, it would be a big propaganda victory.
It was a classic win-win situation, they either gather intelligence or score a major propaganda coup.

http://www.historycommons.org/context.jsp?item=amid0983shultzgromyko

“According to a memo issued to the Politburo by the Defense Ministry and the KGB
“We are dealing with a major, dual-purpose political provocation carefully organized by the US special services. The first purpose was to use the incursion of the intruder aircraft into Soviet airspace to create a favorable situation for the gathering of defense data on our air defense system in the Far East, involving the most diverse systems including the Ferret satellite. Second, they envisaged, if this flight were terminated by us, [the US would use] that fact to mount a global anti-Soviet campaign to discredit the Soviet Union.”

Wilder Stories.

There are a number of wilder stories regarding this flight. That the Congressman Larry McDonald who died on the flight was targeted for assassination, that the flight landed safely and those on board were taken prisoner by the USSR. There is no way to completely discount these stories but their appears to be little evidence and logic in these claims. Without being mean the notion that Larry McDonald, head of the John Birch Society would be a worthy target of a Cold war assassination masked as an air disaster appears to be completely preposterous. Whatever Congressman McDonald’s qualities, he was a marginal figure in US political life and the John Birch connection was a lifetime guarantee of that.

Resonances with Recent Events.

MH17

On July 18th, 2014, short of 24 hours after the incident, the Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott stood in the Australian Parliament and baldly announced to a credulous Australian media and public that Malaysian Airline Flight 17 had been DELIBERATELY shot down over Eastern Ukraine in an intentional act of MURDER.
These words were a direct historical echo of the dishonesty and manipulation that emanated from the White House in 1983 in the wake of the KAl007 tragedy.

MH17 ‘looks less like an accident than a crime’

The Australian people were astonishingly expected to believe that the Novorussian fighters were a group of jihadist maniacs like the IS or al Qaeda who would deliberately shoot down a civilian aircraft out of sheer malevolence.
The Novorussian fighters, for all their faults are not now and have never been engaged in any terrorist attacks or the deliberate targeting of opposition civilians.
The Novorussian Republics are not at war with the West and to characterise them that way is simply pitiful.
More importantly, the highly controversial Kharkov event aside I am not aware even of any allegations of terrorism from the fighters of the Eastern Republics.

There has not been bombing and shelling of pro government areas, although there was a controversial incident in Mariupol that may have been the result of rebel fire, it would be the exception to the rule.

Not a single attack has taken place against the people of Kiev or anywhere else outside the zone of conflict.
The recurring message from dishonest Western leaders of the War party is simply,

“We say they are the enemy so they are the enemy.”

The fact that there is no longer any ideological basis for the position no longer matters. Any enemy will do.

911

The ever present parallel of the deeply upsetting big lie aside and the very odd story of Korean Air Lines Flight 85 on September 11th the real parallel is the way that the like 911, for unknown reasons the NTSB were entirely relieved of their investigative authority for unknown reasons.

Conclusion

KAL007 was not a Spy plane it was one element of a larger surveillance operation.

The mission of KAL007 seems fairly clear in retrospect. KAL077 was not a spy flight per se, it was one device tasked with playing a role in a larger reconnaissance mission.

KAL007 was tasked like it’s forerunner, the far luckier KAL902 with specifically violating the Soviet Air Defenses in order to trigger the mobilisation of the Soviet Air Defense systems which US spy satellites would photograph and monitor for military purposes.

The operatives who instructed the flight to violate Soviet airspace presumably did not expect the flight to be destroyed The USSR decision to target the flight was a monumental blunder. An act of criminal stupidity and the responsibility must be shared between the  two self interested and dishonest super powers. But once the flight was downed it was seen as manna from heaven and the most cynical and manipulative response imaginable followed from the US government.

If KAL007 is examined in isolation, the case for an intelligence operation seems spurious but the combination of the two inexplicably “lost over Russia” Korean Airlines jets in such a small space of time rather gives the game away regarding both flights in my opinion.

It is worth remembering that South Korea was, and remains a front line Cold war state in a state of cold conflict with North Korea. Since the end of the Korean war tens of thousands of US troops have remained a constant presence.

The commitment to the narrative of the Cold war is understandably strong in South Korea and the high level of dependence on the United States is also clear.

The other conclusion that can be drawn from this event is that when great powers clash, propaganda trumps the facts on every occasion as it has done with the MH17 disaster and many others more recently.

The callous exploitation of the grief of the American people in the wake of the 007 disaster was disgraceful, it became known that Reagan officials had not been truthful in their description of the KAL007 disaster within weeks and yet the Officials responsible remained unrepentant and the controlled press offered little criticism of their dangerous and irresponsible actions following the KAL007 disaster.

It was amusing to note that in the wake of the MH17 disaster Fox News actually tried to criticise Obama for not sufficiently echoing the dishonesty of President Reagan after 007 and suddenly it seems the quarter century long end of the Cold war never happened.

Ronald Reagan’s reaction in 1983

* (Hersh states during the course of the C-Span interview embedded above that the event took place at a helpful time for the US government as they were hoping to move a number of long range missiles into Europe, there was expected to be a lot of opposition from anti-war types but in the wake of all the anger created by this tragedy and the accompanying propaganda, the scheme met with very little opposition!)

Destroyed Ukraine military hardware and the bodies of slain soldiers near Debaltseve. February, 2015.

March 24th, 2015.

The Donbass War Restarting.

Sadly it appears that the Donbass War is restarting. That the Ukraine Government was simply trying to buy time, lick their wounds and plead for more money from their Western sponsors.

The Clashes are now persistent and intensifying and the Novorussian forces are now apparently conducting their own offensive guerrilla operations in response to the Ukraine Forces constant provocations. as this Kazzura video seems to indicate.

[eng subs] Recon by fire mission in Shirokino. 14/03/15, combat footage by “Khrustalik”

The best thing obviously would be for the war to end and never restart and for the Novorussians and the Ukraine Government to come to an amicable and political long term solution.

Some Western commentators opine that Russia has invaded East Ukraine and is trying to seize the Donbass region and that is simply not the case. Russia has no intent whatsoever to allow the Donbass to formally break from the Ukraine. Russia’s goal is simple, they want the Ukraine not to join NATO, the Novorussian forces and the people of the Donbass are essentially Russia’s willing and able counterweight to the Kiev Western puppets.

Russia has clearly provided material to the Novorussian forces but it has actually been very little.

The Official Russian Military budget is over $40 billion a year whereas the Ukraine Military budget is less than two. The nation is going broke and the support from the West has almost all been rhetorical.

NATO do not want to fight a war against Russia. Bullying thugs will never ever assail an enemy with real claws, ever. The whole fabricated “Russia” threat is just a fund raising exercise and relevance renewal for NATO. It is a scam. Russia is going to get a “colour revolution” whether they like it or not. There is no other way.

NATO has nowhere near the size nor quality of forces to even dream of launching actual offensive operations against Russian territory and the same is vice versa. It is a non-starter with devastating, unbearable losses on both sides inevitable.

Presumably this will play out in much the same way as the past two cease fires. The fighting will become more open, the Novorussians will win a small but significant territorial gain. The French  and Germans will again plead with Poroshenko to stop and at some point he will presumably listen.

What they need to understand is that they are not going to achieve anything because Russia can turn up the support to the Novorussian ten or even one hundred times what the support is today. They are providing the bare minimum and are capable of boosting the support to whatever level required to hold the strongholds of Luhansk and Donetsk, no matter how much support from the West the Ukraine receives .

NATO, perhaps due to the level of corruption in Kiev, has actually pledged very little financial military support to the Ukraine forces who will remain out-thought and out gunned, no matter what NATO does and should therefore stop the nonsense, accept their losses and try and get on with rebuilding the Ukrainian state and the economy.

The CIA Strikes Back in Moscow?

Shrine to slain Russian opposition figure Boris Nemtsov in Moscow.
Shrine to slain Russian opposition figure Boris Nemtsov in Moscow.

February 28th, 2015.

It has seemed clear for several years that the consensus in Empire HQ is that Russia will have to be destroyed using an engineered colour revolution because Russia is far too well armed to risk an open military attack. So the NGO’s were sent out with their CIA cash laundered by the “democracy” promoting “philanthropist” George Soros and they failed in 2011, but the struggle goes on and even if it takes them another twenty years, destroying Russia will remain a key goal until the task is complete. Russia is too powerful and prone to bouts of independent action to be tolerable to the New World Order it seems.

The murder yesterday of the well credentialed but mid ranking Russian opposition figure Boris Nemtsov should be seen in this context. Logic suggests that Nemtsov was a “disposable hero” murdered by Western backed elements in the hope of breathing life into a faltering Russian “democratic revolution”.

Ilya Yashin at the scene.
Ilya Yashin at the scene.

Writing in 2012, the Saker had a number of interesting observations about a number of the leading figures embroiled in this event especially the unbelievably dubious pair of Ilya Yashin and Kseniya Sobchak both of whom were apparently present at the murder scene. This is his very unkind description of the former lovers Yashin and Sobchak “one nutcase (Yashin) and one “career tart”, literally (Sobchak)”

This is a comment attributed to Yashin in the wake of the Nemtsov killing.

“Boris was the most outspoken critic of Putin and the most charismatic leader of the opposition and his dead body found 100 yards from the Kremlin is a clear message to all the opposition activists and all people who do not support the Kremlin This act of political terror is clearly aimed to stun and horrify the opposition to the Putin regime on the eve of the march we will now hold as a mourning march as originally planned on Sunday.”

Ilya Yashin and Kseniya Sobchak

(Interestingly, despite his very public presence at the murder scene, Ilya Yashin claimed that he had not seen Nemtsov for two days.)

This is the description of Nemtsov from the same 2012 article.
“The main guy in all this drama is Boris Nemtsov. He is a very good speaker, he is charming, charismatic and has a great sense of humor. By far the smartest of all of these dissidents and the most valuable to the CIA. He is also the only one who was tipped off and managed to hide from the authorities “

Later in the same article we learn that in 2012

“According to official Russian sources, the cops found over 1’000’000 Euros (one million!) in spread out in about 100 envelopes in the apartments of Yashin and Sobchak.”

Kseniya Sobchak

In the short term the killing of Nemtsov will probably achieve very little for the plotters but it is all part of building their narrative about Putin and Russia. The more mud that can be thrown the better. All doubt in my mind regarding the intent and source of this crime was removed by this comment from the Ukraine President, a reliable barometer.

“Petro Poroshenko, the Ukrainian president, said that Mr Nemtsov had been killed because he was planning to disclose evidence of Russia’s involvement in the war in east Ukraine.
“He said he would reveal persuasive evidence of the involvement of Russian armed forces in Ukraine. Someone was very afraid of this … They killed him,” Mr Poroshenko said.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/russia/11442446/Boris-Nemtsov-murder-Kremlin-accused-of-whitewash-over-probe-into-leading-opposition-figures-killing.html

There are some pretty obvious logical fallacies here along with the speaker’s track record of consistent lies. The whole idea that the Russian assistance to the Novorussian rebels is a big dirty secret that Moscow fears will be discovered is a complete joke on several different levels.

For starters people in Russia know full well that Russia has been supporting the Novorussian rebels in their successful defensive  military campaign in defence of the people of the Donbass. They know about it and they support it. That’s why Putin’s approval levels run as high as 85%, people in Russia support the policies. So this whole idea that the Kremlin is running around desperately trying to suppress news of what has been for them a low cost military and political triumph is actually farcical. Poroshenko tells some of the silliest lies I have ever heard. It is very helpful really. They had to juice up their rally and their movement. They can’t really do anything militarily so they had to show their rage in other ways, they are pretty obvious.

In possibly related news, a key official of the former Yanukovych government Mykhalo Chechetov fell to his death from his 17th floor Kiev balcony today.

“Mr Nemtsov’s killing was one of two suspicious deaths on Friday that have been linked to the ongoing Ukraine crisis. Mykhalo Chechetov, a leading ally of Viktor Yanukovych, the pro-Russian former president, was found dead after falling from his 17th floor flat in Kiev in an apparent suicide. He was facing charges of abuse of power for his role in attempts to crush the protests that eventually toppled the former president.”

The events in the Donbass region of Ukraine have clearly caused a great deal of consternation within the Empire. The pathetic, truly pathetic article “Save the New Ukraine.” penned by NWO paragons Bernard Henri Levy and George Soros make the level of commitment to the Ukraine junta and their total incomprehension of what has happened in the Donbass over the past eight or nine months completely clear. This is only one small provocation on the road to regime change in Russia. Many more disposable heroes will presumably share the unfortunate fate of Boris Nemtsov in the psychopathic pursuit of “victory” over Russia.

The End of the Donbass War?

Destroyed Ukraine military vehicle with dead Ukraine soldiers on the outskirts of Debalstseva. This is how it ended.

The End of the Donbass war?

February 19th, 2015.

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.

Debaltseve

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.

Destroyed Ukraine military hardware and the bodies of slain soldiers near Debaltseve. February, 2015.

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.

When all else fails... Poroshenko pins the Medal of Ukraine on the chest of the Ukraine Commander in Debaltseve.

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.

Some surrendered, many escaped, many died, how many are in each category is unclear at this stage.
The end in Debaltseve for a surrendered group of Ukraine soldiers. Some surrendered, many escaped, many died, how many are in each category is unclear at this stage.

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.

Russian “Satellite Photo” Threats May Signal that the Biggest Lie Ever is About to Die

The Russian Threat.

The Russian ‘threat” printed below makes it absolutely clear. The 911 lie is a dead duck. It’s over, and there is no need for the Russians to release any Satellite footage welcome as that would be. The Official account of the 911 events has long been unmasked and is exceptionally easy to disprove because almost uniquely amongst modern day lies the Official 911 story is physically impossible. The Official story is not only an incorrect description of the events of that day, it is physically impossible on any day.
The sad truth has been staring every one of us in the face for more than 13 years, A critical mass has been reached and time is running out. If you consider the possibility that Western governments have known that time was running out on the 911 lie many of their recent actions may become comprehensible.

The Islamic State psy-op makes more sense, a new enemy had to be cemented in the public mind so that the War on Terror could actually survive 911 truth. Suddenly you get staged beheading videos, the IS is a new demon Muslim to be hyped by the low media. These staged beheading videos are followed by a strangely low key bombardment of IS positions in Iraq and Syria all while the IS group continued to receive arms and other support from the US Shadow government.
It looks as as though the War on terror had to be saved from the threat of the truth emerging about 911 and suddenly there are a whole spate of fake terror attacks right across the West. The Boston and Woolwich incidents, the Ottawa catastrophe and the Sydney shocker along with the whole wave of French terror that is still ongoing.
The one really interesting thing in this statement was that the Russians imagine what they think the reaction of the US public will be to the truth about 911. Pravda imagine large demonstrations and a degree of social instability ” the cities will begin mass protests turning into an uprising,” this may be correct although I doubt that any can state with confidence the consequences the truth will have.

It is worth noting that a significant minority of US citizens have known the truth about 911 for many years and so it will not come as a complete shock to anybody, because almost all have been exposed to these ideas already to some extent.
I have no idea what will happen and realise that I never dared to imagine what might happen. I expect that we will see stunned disbelief and denial initially, presumably followed by rage and demands for justice.
The whole thing is going to be very difficult to resolve because so many of the institutions of the United States have fallen to some degree under the control of the criminal cabal.
There are huge issues at all levels of Law Enforcement and Intelligence. There are tremendous issues also with the Judiciary.
Dealing with these events in a civilised and legal manner is going to present an enormous challenge to the damaged and infiltrated institutions of the United States. It seems almost impossible, but the suppression of the truth is also impossible. Popular Mechanics and all the other fraudsters have been defeated. They were never more than time wasters.

США боятся обнародования российских спутниковых фото трагедии 9/11 – Правда.Ру

“Russia to unveil evidence of involvement of the US government to 911
American experts believe that despite the fact that relations between the US and Russia reached the worst point since the Cold War, Putin delivered until Obama only minor troubles. Analysts believe that this “calm before the storm.” Putin is going to hit once, but he’s going to hit hard. Russia is preparing the release of evidence of the involvement of the US government and intelligence services to the September 11 attacks. In the list of evidence includes satellite images, the website secretsofthefed. com.

Published material can prove malice government towards the people of the US and the successful manipulation of public opinion. US government planned to attack, but spent her proxy. So that an attack on America and the people of the United States looked like an act of aggression of international terrorism.

The motive for deception and murder its own citizens served as US oil interests in the Middle East state corporations.
The evidence will be so convincing that they fall on the previous cases to manipulate public opinion in order to achieve selfish private interests.

Russia proves that America is no stranger to expose and kill its citizens, that would make a pretext for military intervention in the foreign country. In the case of “the September 11 attacks,” the evidence will serve as satellite imagery.
If successful, the consequences of Putin’s tactics, will be for the US government’s most unsightly. The government’s credibility will be undermined in the cities will begin mass protests turning into an uprising, paint a picture of American analysts.

And as the United States will look on the world political arena? The validity of America’s position as a leader in the fight against international terrorism will be undermined than immediately take advantage of rogue states and Islamic terrorists.

Do not be confused by such unsightly scenario, the actual development of the situation could be much worse, experts warn.”

“Why are you Al Qaeda US called? It has long been clear to all that this is simply a lie. And Bin Laden comic “Marvel” invented.” Pravda commentator, also via Google Translate  A Marvel invention indeed. .

This video shows that the basic facts about 911 have been well known to Russian Military Officials for some time.
