Is George Orwell the 20th century Nostradamus

Is George Orwell the 20th century Nostradamus

Do young kids even care about Privacy anymore?
By Dark Politricks

The Snoopers Charter is now the most draconian Internet law in the world.

I bet at least half if not 70% of people today in the UK, don’t even realise what this draconian law is and that is now on the books. If you don’t you better start reading my friend before you are forced into intricate flag waving ceremonies and hand salutes for Theresa May.

Do you care or are you too busy playing candy crush and taking selfies of you on the toilet to worry about antiquated ideas like privacy.

Privacy was once something to be protected. Now it’s a commodity to be sold or to be used to track you down by private investigators, ex partners, the police, MI6/6 a

In the UK we are now living in George Orwell’s prophetic 1984.

This was the futuristic tale written by the author in 1949 by George Orwell  after the 2nd world war.

In the book, he imagined a world constantly at war, enemies to the North, South, East and West, millions of people working for the state apparatus, and a million people dying daily fighting on the front line.

The “Ministry of Truth” where old news stories were carefully amended to show an altered vision of history as alliances change and battles won. Oh and of course the thousands of spies and traitors who had to be weeded out by Big Brother and his double agents.

The book does remind me strongly of the present day.

Alliances swap and change so often, people you were told were eating babies yesterday and fighting tooth and nail against you are now your allies, standing shoulder to shoulder fighting alongside you on the front line against what are probably tomorrow’s allies.

Propaganda is news to be believed as it comes straight from the word of the Great Leader or the State in our case.

Of course any dissidents who try and provide actual facts or a non biased point of view on any conflict are labelled traitors, conspiracy theorists and jailed for long sentences if not silently killed.

A more subtle way in this age of information technology where a GPS chip in your arm, or more precisely your phone, tracks all your movements for the state our #altnews internet sites are taken down or dropped in the Google rankings after sitting at the top for years. Bureaucrats decide what is “fake news” and “real news” and then warn potential readers they may be entering a free thinking zone.

One day an ally in a war is to be against all forms of torture, killing of innocents and despises religious fundamentalism, child killers and suicide bombs. Just like the Syrian Free Army, who were a non jihadist, anti Assad force. The next thing you know they sold all the arms and equipment we had given them to ISIS , ransomed off American journalists to ISIS to be beheaded for cash and prayed to allah as they machine gunned down captors in the street or cut open their victims chests before eating their hearts and lungs.

Alliances change like snowflakes in the wind it seems and the globalist don’t give a shit who they are working with as long as it meets their objective.

We have even got to the stage where al-Qaeda our “mortal enemy” (2 men in a cave), are sometimes on our side. Using pseudo names like al-Nusra Front they are labelled as anti Assad fighters and not jihadists. I’d like to see the command and control structure in that office.

Of course who dies, which states crumble and how many millions of migrants enter Europe to carry out ISIS attacks on Paris night clubs doesn’t matter to the powers that be.

They get their kicks off on a Friday night lying naked in some open coffin wanking off to the names of their ex lovers (I wonder if that includes little boys and girls….) and have all their mates watch and cheer. Then they finish the night off with a nice “pizza” as they discuss the next destabilisation plan on the table.

Then as politics and the war changes, the idea to be at perpetual war to keep the citizens at home and frightened (sound familiar), the alliances change so that in the hall of records this previous alliance is airbrushed out of history and the strength of unity and purpose that our new alliance brings is fully documented.

George Orwell had an uncanny knack of seeing into the future or his tale was picked on as some sort of template to base our war economy on.

We already have the Telescreens in our rooms and the Snoopers Charter (and US Terms and Conditions) make it exactly that.

If you have a built in Web Cam for Skype or games just beware it’s two way. If you can use it, so can the police and MI5/6 use it to watch you, and with the new Snooper Charter Law they don’t even need a warrant. So when you send that next sex text to you baby mama just be on notice the local drug squad could all be having a giggle.

“They” are watching and listening to you through your digital accessories on TV’s, Phones, PC’s, laptops, tablets anything that can be hacked (most things) and profiling you just as in the book 1984.

You can get all techie about it as I write here about some of the ways to mitigate such surveillance or a quick list on journalists who were followed and harassed, some killed, but a quick list would be.

Encrypt your phone in the settings with a long upper and lower case passwords only you know.

Use patterns to access all your favourite apps. 4 digit pins are easily breakable in 5 mins but a pattern you have got wrong a hundred times before is a lot harder.

Turn your location off. Why do you need to see where you drove around for the last week or so or what time you stopped at the local McDonalds. Not very interesting but it just might be for people watching you.

Use Anti Virus tools on your phone. MalwareBytes is free and good for both PC and phone. Clean Master is also good and CM Security allows you to add patterns/pin codes/finger prints to open apps and files if you phone doesn’t have it built in.

Don’t use the default Text or Phone app you get on your phone. All these calls and messages will be saved at Vodafone HQ for a year or more in case the cops come calling. Just deleting them off your phone does nothing as they are still on your phone providers servers.

Install Telegram , Viber or if you must Wickr . A BT Sim only plan will get you on the internet in most place so you can video call Japan – encrypted – all without using up your minutes. Same goes for texts. Telegram / Wickr allow you to delete your texts after X days/weeks/months with a self destruct option that if you don’t use your app within X days or so it will delete the whole account.

So if your phone goes “missing” you can be safe knowing as they are dictionary cracking your passwordsock them out after 3 failed goes and attempting patterns that will l your texts will get deleted.

Also BT uses DCHP which means everytime I go on the web I get a new IP address this pisses me off no end as I need to add it into my firewall to SFTP or stop myself being blocked out my own site.

However it also means it makes it a lot harder over historical period to see what you were up to when they cannot trace the IP address to you especially when you went through a number of proxies.

That is of course unless you have already been hacked and all your history lies at GCHQ – the great hall of records, history, fake history and “we are all doing this for your own protection”.

So just use masking tape over your phones camera or webcam if you are not planning on using it and the same goes for your microphone.

Sometimes the best ways are the oldest. And if your really paranoid, which you should be as no-one, no matter what gibberish they spout has “nothing to hide, nothing to fear” – it’s about liberty and not living in a police state where anyone in a uniform can “demand your papers”. If you are really going off the grid then you should learn how to use pigeons to send messages up and down the country like the olden times of yore.

So what is it with all these shifting alliances, especially with the most barbaric country in the world, and biggest fund raiser of terrorism, Saudi Arabia.

Well we are doing it to keep one of the few UK industries that is actually not running offshore after BREXIT, the arms industry, booming.

By selling weapons to Saudi Arabia and Qatar who then use them to kill kids in Yemen and then allow them to pass on the equipment and supply them to ISIS to fight themselves – convoluted I know but apparently despite funding and arming ISIS like Turkey they are also in an alliance to destroy them.

This anti ISIS alliance means nothing of course and history like Orwell predicted will be rewritten, but the amount of US/UK arms being found in overrun ISIS positions just shows our duplicity and complicity in the whole nefarious debacle.


George Orwell’s 1984, a tale of fiction not a road map to future militarism and a police state

We are living in a surveillance state.
We are being watched.
Constantly.

“I didn’t join the military to fight for al-Qaeda” #IdidntJoin #NoSyriaWar

September 2, 2013

Anti Syrian War Campaign – “I didn’t join the military to fight for al-Qaeda” #IdidntJoin #NoSyriaWar

By Dark Politricks

It looks like a new anti Syrian war campaign has been launched online and I urge every serving military member or veteran to support it if they don’t believe that their country should be fighting alongside al-Qaeda in Syria.

I have made article after article detailing how we are basically funding, supporting and fighting alongside al-Qaeda rebels from Libya to Syria. It now seems that many serving military feel the same. They don’t want to fight alongside the same people the US Government blame for terror attacks against the US people.

Not only is a proven fact that the USA created al-Qaeda to fight the USSR in Afghanistan in the 80’s but we have supported them in their terrorist activities in China, Chechnya, Kosovo and most recently gave al-Qaeda linked rebels NATO air support in their overthrow of Col Gaddafi in Libya. Read this for more information on our links with al-Qaeda.

Since the Arab Spring started which is basically a US backed plot to cause de-stabilisation around the Middle East we have witnessed Libya, Tunisia and now Egypt turned into failed states. Syria and then Iran are next on the list.

Al-Qaeda, The Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic extremists like al-Nusra Front aim to, and have succeeded in some cases to control their own areas of the countries they are causing havoc in and in the countries already wiped clean with our help such as Libya and Egypt there is no functioning government to speak of.

The Libyan rebel commanders we supported with tax payers money are even people our Government once claimed were terrorists and some were even locked up in Gitmo such as Abdelhakim Belhaj the founder of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group. This is the al-Qaeda linked group that ex British MI6 agent, David Shayler and two French reporters with links to ex-president Jacques Chirac claimed the British paid to assassinate Col. Gaddafi in 1996.

Why is it our leaders are so keen to back the heart eating, beheading, child killing nutters that are basically the same people who kill our own soldiers such as the horrible case of Lee Rigby in London?

How strange it is that terrorist are friends one minute then enemies the next. Their status changes so fast it is hard to know whether we are supposed to hate them or support them. Obama would certainly like us to support them in another illegal adventure in Syria.

We know that the CIA and other intelligence agencies maintained close contact with al-Qaeda including Osama bin-Laden right up to 9.11. They even visited him in hospital, and according to Sibel Edmonds the CIA has been using the terrorist group to fight proxy wars around the world just as they did in the 80’s with the Soviets.

As I wrote in my recent article “Are we ready to go to war with Russia over Syria” there is plenty of evidence that recent chemical attacks weren’t even carried out by the Assad regime as the mainstream propaganda would like us to believe. In fact there is more than enough evidence and credible witnesses who claim it was Syrian rebels who deployed the weapons, either by mistake because they didn’t know how to use them, or on purpose to blame on the Syrian regime.

Experts like John Hart, head of the Chemical and Biological Security Project at Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Gwyn Winfield, editor of CBRNe World magazine, which specialises in chemical weapons issues and even the Israeli paper Haaretz have cast doubts on the claims that the chemical weapons attack was an Assad job.

The fact that the British parliament voted against joining the US in any attack, a first that I know of, and that Russian President Vladimir Putin has called for Obama to present his evidence at the UN is a sign that many outside the axis of war believe there isn’t enough evidence to go to war over this. The problem is our war mongering leaders just don’t want to listen.

Our politicians are busy holding war cabinets and declaring that there is no other possible explanation for the chemical weapons attack apart from the Assad regime carrying it out yet they know that Syrian rebels have been caught multiple times with Sarin gas in Syria and Turkey. 

The mainstream media seems to be very quiet when it comes to evidence that points away from President Assad but even if he did carry out the attack are we really prepared to send our sons and daughters to fight alongside these Islamic nutters?

The mainstream media has been strangely quiet on all the Christians who are being killed, their churches and graveyards destroyed and the peril they will be in if we allow Islamic extremists to take over these countries.

President Assad may be a dictator, but Christians and Muslims have lived side by side in Syria for hundreds of years. The problem is he is not “our dictator” and the chemical weapons he supposedly used were not authorised by us. Not like during the Iraq / Iran war in which we didn’t kick up too much of a fuss when Saddam Hussein gassed thousands of Iranians with our knowledge.

We are now considering backing these various groups of Islamic extremists in Syria.

Both the al-Nusra Front and al-Qaeda rebels are fighting President Assad in their civil war and they want to establish an Islamic al-Qaeda state if successful. Do you really think they will be grateful for our support or are they just using us for their own ends. Do you really see them handing over any weapons that fall into their hands from NATO supplies after any war is over? They sure didn’t in Libya.

So if there is a campaign starting online I am all behind it. I hope as many soldiers from countries planning on fighting join it as possible.

Why the fuck would any US or NATO soldier for that matter want to fight on the same side as al-Qaeda. Weren’t they the whole reason this war on terror was started in the first place?

Anyone who knows anything realises the CIA control these rebels and they are used as the perfect patsies to de-stabilise countries so that we can enter on white horses as saviours to humanity. The sad thing is that we are no such thing, we are moral relativists who have no ethical boundaries when it comes to war. If there is money to be made or oil to be drilled then that is all the excuse we need.

I just hope this campaign catches on. Hashtags #IdidntJoin and #NoSyriaWar seem to be the ones to use when posting your own “I didn’t join the military to fight alongside al-Qaeda” photos on Twitter.

Here are just a few of the photos from the #IdidntJoin campaign.

Are we sure we want to start World War III?

August 26, 2013

Are we sure we want to start World War III?

By Dark Politricks

This is the question we should be debating when we talk about Syria, especially after this latest chemical weapon attack.

So far the claims that the attack was carried out by President Assad’s forces have not been proved and seeing that the history of previous claims has actually led to the door of the rebels we should be wary about jumping in head first.

Why President Assad would attack defenceless woman and children with chemical weapons instead of the rebel forces I have no idea. He knows that the west has made “chemical weapons” their red line and even though we have backtracked from storming into Syria on previous occasions we have been funding and supporting the rebels covertly for some time.

However with politicians in the USA, UK and France all getting war crazy after the latest attack we should be very wary of attacking Syria without 100% proof that

a) Assad was behind the attacks and

b) We are prepared to see high-tech Russian made missiles flying all over the middle east.

Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., the top Democrat on the House Foreign Relations Committee, is telling TV stations that Obama should ignore the War Powers Act, as he did over Libya and go straight into Syria first and ask Congress for permission later.

And the UK’s foreign secretary, William Hague, is indicating that the axis of war, USA, UK and France could go it alone in Syria without consent from the UN. He told the BBC today that:

“Diplomacy has not worked in Syria” and that:

“We, the United States, many other countries including France, are clear that we can’t allow the idea in the 21st century that chemical weapons can be used with impunity,” as well as implying that military action could be taken “without complete unity on the UN Security Council” and stressed that such action would be “in accordance with international law”.

He also parroted the official line that has yet to be proven that the main suspect behind the attack is indeed the Syrian regime and there was “no other plausible explanation”.

Obviously this is biased and playing to one point of view, a western imperialist one that ignores past facts and uncomfortable truths about the nature of the rebels we are so eager to back in Syria.

An earlier independent UN investigation into the use of chemical weapons by the former Swiss attorney-general Ms Del Ponte suggested that previous chemical weapon attacks were carried out by Syrian rebels NOT the forces of President Assad.

She claimed that there was “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof” that the rebels had used the nerve gas Sarin. However this point of view was obviously dismissed out of hand by the Axis of War as it didn’t fit their desired outcome.

I can only suspect that the “independent” investigators sent to examine recent claims of a chemical weapon attack have been picked more “thoroughly” this time.

This comes on top of a recent raid by Turkish security forces who found a 2 kg cylinder filled with sarin gas after searching the homes of Al-Nusra Syrian militants. The raid was carried out in the southern provinces of Adana and Mersia and the gas was allegedly going to be used to carry out a chemical attack in the southern Turkish city of Adana.

Russia Today, although not exactly fair and biased when it comes to their allies, as is the BBC, FOX or CNN, recently reported that the Syrian army had found a huge chemical weapons factory just outside Damascus. Obviously this news wasn’t reported much on western TV.

We also have proof that talk of a “false flag” attack to pin blame on Assad and make an attack on Syria possible is not so far-fetched after all. Hacked emails from defense contractor Britam revealed a plan which was apparently “approved by Washington” and funded by Qatar, to stage a chemical weapons attack in Syria.

This false flag attack is something many people have warned about and it would provide the war mongers the perfect excuse to start their next war of distraction. If you haven’t seen this point of view being espoused on mainstream media then you are getting your news from the wrong sources, alternative media sites have been talking about this possibility for years now.

I most recently talked about our hypocrisy in supporting al-Qaeda linked terrorists in Syria, which follows on from our support of them in Libya, Kosovo and back into time.  It seems we are fond of using al-Qaeda as the bogeyman to strip our liberties at home but support them in any way possible to destabilise our enemies abroad.

Washington’s Blog gave a great breakdown on the doubt cast about the recent chemical weapons attack recently and included quotes from experts in chemical weapons use.

John Hart, head of the Chemical and Biological Security Project at Stockholm International Peace Research Institute said he had not seen the telltale evidence in the eyes of the victims that would be compelling evidence of chemical weapons use.

“Of the videos that I’ve seen for the last few hours, none of them show pinpoint pupils… this would indicate exposure to organophosphorus nerve agents,” he said.

Gwyn Winfield, editor of CBRNe World magazine, which specialises in chemical weapons issues, said the evidence did not suggest that the chemicals used were of the weapons-grade that the Syrian army possesses in its stockpiles.

“We’re not seeing reports that doctors and nurses… are becoming fatalities, so that would suggest that the toxicity of it isn’t what we would consider military sarin. It may well be that it is a lower-grade,” Winfield told AFP.

Even the Israeli paper Haaretz casted doubts on the Syrian army being behind the attack.

Western experts on chemical warfare who have examined at least part of the footage are skeptical that weapons-grade chemical substances were used.

Dan Kaszeta, a former officer of the U.S. Army’s Chemical Corps and a leading private consultant, pointed out a number of details absent from the footage so far: “None of the people treating the casualties or photographing them are wearing any sort of chemical-warfare protective gear,” he says, “and despite that, none of them seem to be harmed.” This would seem to rule out most types of military-grade chemical weapons.

Additional questions also remain unanswered, especially regarding the timing of the attack, being that it occurred on the exact same day that a team of UN inspectors was in Damascus to investigate earlier claims of chemical weapons use.

It is also unclear what tactical goal the Syrian army would have been trying to achieve, when over the last few weeks it has managed to push back the rebels who were encroaching on central areas of the capital. But if this was not a chemical weapons attack, what then caused the deaths of so many people without any external signs of trauma?

So it seems that despite doubts by many, the axis of war are scheming and getting ready it seems to launch another war in breach of international law. We should be thinking twice about the consequences of such actions as it could be the “big war of distraction” that many have been waiting for.

Russia has already claimed it would supply advanced missile systems to Syria including missiles that “never miss their target”, and whilst Putin has claimed that Israel wouldn’t be attacked if they stayed out of the conflict it is obvious by their attacks into Syria so far that this would be unlikely.

Therefore a full-scale war with Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and maybe Russia on one side, with the axis of war, Israel, al-Nusra Front, al-Qaeda and the Free Syrian Army on the other seems likely.

Even I had to read that sentence a few times when I wrote it!

Are we really prepared to fight alongside al-Qaeda linked rebels? The same people we blame for 9.11 and the war on terror?

Are we prepared to go to war to support the same sort of people who beheaded a UK soldier, Lee Rigby, on the streets of London only months back? People like these?

 

And Russia isn’t going to play nice this time.

Putin has passed on diplomatic messages to the axis of war claiming that they will supply weapons that have never been seen in the Middle East before.

These will include top of the range, S 400 system has a range of over 400 miles and is considered more than a decade ahead of the most advanced US counterpart. Syria is already, along with Iran, likely to have the older S 300 missile system installed and ready for use.

Russian S-400 Missile System

Russian Barrel 24 Launchers

It seems that years ago the Soviets and then Russians, adopted a new tactic, instead of the cold war, gun for gun, tank for tank race with NATO. Instead of building and maintaining a huge expensive arsenal they instead looked for weaknesses in their opponents defences and then came up with ways to exploit them.

It seems that with their new range of missiles that they may have done that, although I’m sure with the amount of money the USA spends on its military it won’t have sat back and allowed the Russians to implement superior weapons that could one day defeat them. However from talk on various military and defence sites it does seem that the Russian’s do have some of the top anti-ship missile technology available on the planet at the moment.

Missiles such as the SS-N-22 “Sunburn” which has a speed of Mach 2.5 or 1500 miles an hour, uses stealth technology and has a range up to 130 miles. They also have the “Yakhonts”,  SSN-X-26 cruise missile which has a range of 185 miles and could make all US / NATO ships in the Persian Gulf or Mediterranean vulnerable to attack.

Whilst the US has been installing new anti-aircraft missile defence systems the missiles they are likely to face have never been tested in combat in real situations therefore until that time comes theoretical debates on defence system websites will be just that. However this being said the two armies have never actually “faced off”, so to speak, apart from by proxy and if the war in Syria heats up enough we might be crazy enough to see who’s missile system really is the best.

Are we really willing to risk a possible World War just to support a civil war we have no right being involved in?

Are we prepared to be called “hypocrites” again for breaching international law, ignoring the UN and choosing who can and can’t start wars in the world?

And do we really want to risk a major war all on unproven evidence of a chemical weapons attack that in all likelihood was a staged attack by the rebels?

It seems that whenever a big peace talk, convention or inspection in Syria is about to happen a new “major crime against humanity” occurs. Is this just luck or are the Syrian rebels trying to force our hand by using false flag attacks to pin the blame on Assad?

Before we are willing to risk the lives of millions shouldn’t we be sure first?

New massacre by the Syrian rebels won’t stop Cameron pressuring Putin to go to war to help them other-throw Assad

August 3, 2012

By Dark Politricks

A new video released by Syrian rebels fighting President Assad in Syria apparently showing them shooting captured troops loyal to President Assad has not been mentioned in the western media but the western TV stations love to parrot the line whenever the shoe is on the other foot.

You can find some of the video on the Guardian one of the few papers that has some modicum of balance even though it is definitely not independent in any way it is mostly anti-war in its articles.

The text above the video goes:

“Amateur footage purports to show pro-Assad militia captured by rebels, who are seen collecting their dead as fierce clashes continue in Aleppo. Government forces continue to shell Syria‘s largest city, including the rebel stronghold of Salaheddin. The Turkish prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, and US defence secretary, Leon Panetta, say time is running out for Syrian president Bashar al-Assad”

Not exactly singing the same sort of tune as the “town about to be massacred” and “Assad troops massacre civilians and rebels” etc that has been covering the media over the weeks including by the same Guardian paper trying to give some form of balance however small to both sides of this civil war in Syria.

You can find more balanced views (in that I mean a view opposing the western one so that you can make your own mind up) on rt.com or Russia Today. Yes the same international TV station that is attacked by Hillary Clinton, Western news pundits and others for its “pro-Kremlin” views, a KGB front and so on.

The video and article they show is show here: http://www.rt.com/news/syria-rebel-massacre-aleppo-627/

This article has more than a slightly different slant on matters than the Guardian one which goes to show how one journalist’s writing can turn A into B and people who only read from one news source will undoubtedly get a skewed outlook on matters.

Now I would never advise anyone to get their news only from one source but you should never, never just believe what you are told by the Western media who are mostly owned and controlled by the same few rich families and organisations. Editorial control they call it, a reason given by Julian Assange when he fell out with the Guardian when they refused to show certain documents, videos from his #cablegate release. The same one that might see him end up in an orange jumpsuit in the USA.

Why the Swedish police cannot just interview him over the phone or in the Ecuadorian embassy I don’t know! But he hasn’t even been charged with a crime.

Supposedly they only want to talk to him about about certain crimes that can only be described as “unusual” and involve two girls who were WikiLeak “fans” or “benefactors” who obviously had a crush on him having sex with him on consecutive nights.

They found out about the other girl and as some may say – “Hell has no fury like a woman  scorned” they both went to the police and accused Julian of having sex with him without wearing a condom! Now I don’t know how this is a crime as they obviously let him do it otherwise it would be rape or sexual assault but nonetheless the Swedes want him in their country for interviewing.

At the moment he is in the Ecuadorian embassy in London waiting for the Ecuadorian’s to make their mind up about asylum whilst I guess the Americans threaten that country with everything under the sun but it all seems like madness to me. If you could be arrested and locked up for having sex without a condom then how many men out there would be in prison right now?

Anyway back to the point – get your news from opposing points of view and then make your own mind up.

Do not believe everything your told whatever channel it comes from!

Russia Today may be the spawn of the KGB and Kremlin propaganda in some peoples eyes but it most definitely gives a voice to those people the western media overlook. Remember this is the channel that gave Julian Assange his own “The World Tomorrow” interview show to talk to people the western news channels wouldn’t dare interview.

If I want news or details of political crimes and Russian mafia like governance then I wouldn’t expect Russia Today to give it to me and in the same way you shouldn’t expect your own countries news channels to attack their own country in the same way.

However Russia Today allows rebels, dissidents, people considered “unpatriotic” and all the other bullshit names FOX and other channels throw about in the USA to appear on their channels frequently. Everybody from members of Anonymous, WikiLeaks to Alex Jones, Glenn Greenwald and Norman Finkelstein at the very least. People the western shows stay away from like a turd on a stick.

So when you hear about Assad and the next town about to be massacred just remember that war crimes are being committed and admitted by the UN Human Rights council by both sides in this civil war.

Only last week the Free Syrian Army committed massive attacks in the capital that killed numerous civilians as well as the Syrian Defence Minister.

UN human rights chief Navi Pillay said last week:

“Pillay cited unconfirmed reports of atrocities including executions and shooting of civilians by snipers during recent fighting in the Syrian capital Damascus. Her office had also been receiving an increasing number of reports of opposition fighters torturing or executing prisoners, and reports that unarmed prisoners had been killed in the central prisons of Aleppo and Homs during uprisings in the past week, in violation of international law. “

This is a civil war and should be left as such without all the arming and funding by Saudia Arabia and Qatar with help from US/UK/French war mongerers who don’t seem to learn anything. Especially that if you put religious fanatics into power including your supposed “mortal enemy” you end up with Libya.

A country run by ex LIFG / al-Qaeda members, rebel armies controlling towns and summary executions of people with links to Gadaffi or black skin.

Just remember what happened when the CIA helped create al-Qaeda in their fight against the Soviets in Afghanistan. Blowback and bombings and then 9.11.

Syria and Libya are a lot closer to home than “the Stan” and before “our help” their leaders, as crazy and despotic as they may seem to us, were also were a lot nicer than our “ally” Saudi Arabia a medieval country run under ancient barbaric laws with no respect for human rights and women.

If foreign policy was logical this would have been the target of any post-9.11 attack due to the number of hijackers that were Saudi Arabian and all the funding of terror groups it does regularly – but then they supply us oil and Bush’s family have a “close” relationship with the House of Saud.

But then when has western foreign policy ever been logical and when does the enemy of our enemy stay our enemy and not our friend?
