A British soldier is beheaded on the streets of London by the same kind of Islamic fundamentalists we want to arm in Syria

A British soldier is beheaded on the streets of London by the same kind of Islamic fundamentalists we want to arm in Syria

By Dark Politricks

Whilst we are busing arming and funding Syrian rebels who behead and eat the hearts of Syrian soliders It seems that the same Islamic fundemenalists who we are supposedly helping have no qualms about killing the soldiers who have helped them on many occassion. It seems clear to me which side they are really on – NOT OURS! 

Therefore it makes it all the more stranger that we are constantly talking about intervening in countries like Syria. Are we forgetting there is a large Christian and non Islamic community who will undoubtably suffer if we let Islamic nutters take over the country with weapons supplied by us?

This is all made much more clearer with the horrific machete attack on a UK solidier in South London last night. If the killers were people who wanted us to help Syrian Muslims then they have a funny way of showing it.

However if they are sick to death, like many westerners, of this constant war of terror then they have clearly brought it back to our streets so we can feel the effects of it.

Our actions have consequences and by supporting governments who bomb, kill and maim civilians from drones is only going to cause more incidences like this one. Votes count – make sure yours does and remember that a strong army to “defend” the country is not the same as a strong army to “attack” other countries.

Our main problem is we have no actual point of reference when it comes to who we fight and who we support. It is like our leaders toss a coin to decide whether the Islamic fighters in country A are worth supporting whilst those in country B deserve a few bombs dropped on them.

We fight al-Qaeda linked Muslims in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Iraq and back al-Qaeda in Libya and Syria.

Israel is even bandaging up the wounded “enemies” of Syria (who we are also supposed to believe are the enemies of Israel) up and send them back to fight from special front line hospitals.

All the while we shoot, bomb and fire £400,000 missiles into mud huts in other Islamic countries.

How many weddings and funerals is it now that we’ve accidentally blown up because we mistook the crowd for terrorists? Did we even check the bodies to see if we got the target right? I doubt it.

It makes me think we are trying to extend this never ending war on terror for as long as possible. It would certainly make companies like Halliburton, Xe and the military industrial complex happy as they would have a perfect replacement for the Cold War enemies of years gone by to milk our government and tax payers for weapons, re-construction and security.

This clash of civilisations was predicted way back in the 80’s to justify western liberal cohesion by creating an enemy that we would all get together to fight just as we saw the Soviets as that evil empire in the 20th century Islam is their replacement in the 21st.

It just so happens that we helped this enemy rise to prominence by arming them to fight left wing forces in moderate Muslim countries and used them to fight proxy wars against the Soviets as in Afghanistan.

I have to wonder how long this war on terror is supposed to go on for?

Just enough so that we lose all our liberties at home? You know the ones that those terrorists hate us for (as we were told by George W Bush many years back) just so we can throw them away and save our enemies the trouble of taking them from us.

Or is it just long enough until we are really ready to fight China for the few remaining natural resources that there will be in a decade or so?

Maybe it is both but whatever the reason there are plenty of reasons for many Muslim people around the world to be angry at the axis of war and our hypocritical foreign policy of both fighting and arming the same kind of Islamic fundamentalists that chopped this UK soldier up in front of a school.

Our double standards when it comes to who we arm and support is blatantly stupid and anyone who studies history can see that we have no “ethical foreign policy” as Robin Cook, the ex UK Foreign Secretary once espoused.

Whether it is a right wing nationalist dictator or groups of people who are enemies and on banned organisation lists one minute and then taken off to become our armed terrorist friends the next.

And lets not forget that dozens of inmates in Gitmo who were set for release multiple years ago are still on hunger strike because of the refusal of the US government to set them free.

If they have no control over their own lives at least they can control their own death – or so they thought until the US military started force feeding them.

Some would call that torture? Does it matter what we call it, we have already crossed the Rubicon on that one a long time ago.

So whilst this attack is abhorrent and disgusting in every way. It is no different from the videos and pictures we saw the other week of a Syrian rebel cutting open the body of a Syrian soldier and eating his lungs and heart on tape.

(Warning – graphic pictures)

It seems yet again that the blow-back I talked about in my last piece on the Syrian war: “Here we go again more propaganda and lies” is already coming home to bite us squarely in the arse.

No-one in my country wants Sharia law apart from a few Muslim hardliners and to them I say very loudly “Sod off back to Saudi Arabia where you can enjoy getting your hands cut off for thieving a loaf of bread instead of a slap on the wrist by our liberal western courts”.

I don’t want any English women to wear Burkas. Not only is it misogynist and a blatant sign of cultural ideas trumping scripture because men want to rule the roost, but I want to enjoy the sun, the short skirts and the nightclubs if I can thank you very much! If I didn’t I would move to an Islamic country.

However due to Labours policy of letting anyone and everyone into our country over their years in power including so many terrorists that the USA and Russia labelled LONDON, Londonistan. We are now full of terrorists we cannot deport because they would be tortured in their home country for their crimes.

We are also full to the brim of people who don’t want to assimilate, feel like we all hate them when they pick up the daily papers, and now there are more than a few thousand young unemployed Muslim men who hate our way our life and “western decadence” and don’t feel English in anyway.

Therefore when they see people from their own countries, people they feel connected to through religious and cultural ties, bombed and murdered by western made munitions and western troops they are going to re-act.

Wouldn’t you if you lived in Pakistan and saw Pakistanis bombing and killing Americans or Britains? 

Of course there is no rational explanation for what these dogs did to one of our soldiers but there is an easy fix.

Get the fuck out of business that shouldn’t involve us and let people who want to otherthrow their government do it by themselves. Leave the geo-political chess games alone and do the main function of government and defend our borders NOT attack other countries.

We had no right to go to war in Iraq and now up to a million civilians have died because of it.

We had no right to side with the Benghazi rebels in what was a blatant tribal war and now we have turned a relativley prosperous and healthy and educated populus into one ruled by rebel gangs and western armed ex terrorists.

The same has to be said of Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen as we drop bombs on villages from drones controlled from thouands of miles away. We use a generation of soldiers grown up on Playstations to fly drones with controllers modelled on the same computers and we don’t even bother to count the bodies as we fly off to our next target.

I wonder how many relatives of the dead innocent victims of these attacks have promised vengeance on US or UK soldiers at their funerals?

If there are terrorists who have actually committed crimes (not just spouted off on the Internet) then we should send in special forces, extract them and try them in a court of law. We should be showing the world we are better than them NOT the same as them. What ever happened to “leading by example” and having a belief in “moral superiority”.

By dropping bombs from drones on poor peoples homes from a far and not even knowing if we killed a true terrorist of just a whole innocent family trying to survive on less than $1 a day we are letting the world see our callousness.

There is a reason I call the west “the axis the war” e.g. USA/UK/France, and it was no surprise that at the time of the attack in Woolwich our heroic PM, “Call me Dave” Cameron, was with French President François Hollande discussing arming the same sorts of people who just cut our own soldiers hearts out in but in Syria.

Are we fucking stupid? It would seem so to me.

These Islamic rebels who want to impose Sharia law wherever they go haven’t thanked us for Libya and they surely won’t thank us for Syria if we end up supporting and arming them.

History is full of our hypocrisy over al-Qaeda and long ago we even helped the al-Qaeda linked KLA in their battle with Serbia. What does that tell you apart from the fact that we have no ethical line in the sand when it comes to war and selling arms to whoever we can is more important than an ethical foreign policy.

If “call me Dave” had any sense he would have said in his COBRA meeting today that we should pull out of the Stan ASAP and start a peace process in Syria NOT throw more coal into the fire.

However I doubt that thought was even mentioned by anyone sitting round the table. What I can presume is that more liberty destroying measures were discussed such as real time monitoring of social media, ID cards, profiling Muslims and throwing other liberties away. All things that we should be more scared of losing than the rare occurrence of a terrorist attack on our streets.

If you read my last article from the Corbett Report about Zbigniew Brzezinski, The Conspiracy Theorist then you will know that he was the architect of al-Qaeda and the Taliban we are now fighting in the Stan.

He is also the reason the Stan produces the most smack in the world at the moment.

Why? All because the USA wanted to draw the Soviets into their own Vietnam. He succeeded and the hero of the war, a certain Mr bin-Laden soon became the biggest bogey man in the world.

Morals, ethics, don’t make me laugh.

How long after Bibi’s speech at the UN do we wait for a war with Iran?

September 29, 2012

How long after Bibi’s speech at the UN do we wait for a war with Iran?

By Dark Politricks

After Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s “performance” in the UN assembly the other day it is clear he is itching for a war with Iran.

Despite the facts of the matter e.g NO PROOF that Iran is building a bomb which comes from people such as top American and Israeli military and intelligence officials who have gone public to state that:

  • Iran has not decided to build a nuclear bomb.
  • Even if they did – they would be stupid to use it as America and Israel has thousands of nuclear bombs and they would be wiped out in seconds.
  • Plus even American intelligence operatives such as Director of National Intelligence James Clapper,  General Ron Burgess, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff agree that Iran is a “rational” state actor who wouldn’t suicidally kill their whole country for the sake of one (probably shot down) attempt at a nuclear strike on Israel.
If we want to see all of the following:
  • The Middle East in more flames as Syria and Iran go down fighting, with proxies such as Hezbollah and Hamas lobbing rockets into neighbouring countries, terrorists blowing themselves up on New York and London trains and more havoc than could be imagined at this point.
  • More US embassies being overrun and more US ambassadors being killed.
  • Yet more US and UK troops dying on foreign lands fighting wars for other countries.
  • The price of your petrol rise to stupendously high levels (they are already crazy in the UK £1.4+ for a litre of unleaded).
  • Another hypocritical breach of international law in which we let a member of the Nuclear non proliferation treaty (Iran) who has not been proved breaking it whilst a non signatory (Israel with their 200+ nukes) start another pre-emptive illegal war “just in case” they might have been right.
  • Then a war in Iran is just want we need.

We seem to forget that Iran has one of the largest populations of Jews outside Israel in the Middle East and they are not living in ghettos, forced into concentration camps, being exterminated or any of the other deeds carried out by the Nazi’s that led to Israels creation after World War 2. In fact they live quite comfortably.

Israel was a country created in the misguided belief that Palestine was a place with no inhabitants.

Just sat there waiting for thousands of Jews, many with no links to the land whatsoever, to come and kill British soldiers by the hundreds through terrorist organisations like Irgun and Stern gang. Then afterwards start a civil war – in which the seeds of a new “international law”, created by the USA and the Nuremberg trials to punish the Germans for their crimes against the Jews, were totally ignored by the same people who first benefited from them.

Laws that have still not been fulfilled. Such as the return of Palestinian refugees to their homes. Plus laws that are still breached to this day; such as the attacking of whole civilian populations as Israel did in Operation Cast Lead, targeted assassinations and illegal blockades of whole territories such as Gaza.

In fact it is no wonder that Israel along with the USA finds itself in a nice group of countries who haven’t signed up to the International Criminal Court alongside China, Iraq, Libya, Qatar, Yemen, India, Iran, Japan, North Korea, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, and Turkey.

I suppose it’s because they would find their soldiers and leaders in the dock so often that they might as well set-up a camp alongside it.

I doubt acts such as these would be welcomed by bosses of the US Army as they would find themselves consuming whole years worth of dockets at the International Criminal Court.

Crimes such as:

I suppose it makes you understand why Israel and America were so keen NOT to join the International Criminal Court, even though Bill Clinton signed up to it before George W Bush withdrew the signature in 2002.

Maybe we just have to wait for Romney to steal the election with the help of the Koch brothers before we get this disastrous war with Iran which will undoubtedly worsen our global recession.

Or maybe Obama is just putting it all off until after the election so that he can use AIPAC dollars for his re-election campaign and then he will surprise us all by doing what US Presidents’s haven’t done previously in their last term – act like an honest broker between Israel and Palestine.

If he really, really tries to sort out that problem, the one all US Presidents weakly attempt to in their second term, then the anti-Zionist rage (not anti-semitic) will hopefully subside.

Maybe even Iran won’t consider the racist Israeli government a threat, which it is at the moment, with their hundreds of illegal nuclear weapons and their support for terrorist groups like the MEK who have just been removed from the US terrorist watchlist. A group who bombs, assassinates and terrorises Iranians all the time. But then they are “freedom  fighters” when they are fighting OUR enemies aren’t they!

Maybe once President Obama doesn’t have to think about another re-election then all that “change” he promised us he will actually try to deliver.

Maybe starting with actually letting Palestine become a real state in the eyes of the UN and remove the promise that the USA will always block votes aimed at curbing Israeli war crimes and breaches of international law in the UN Security Council.

Maybe when their crimes are re-examined in an international court (not that they subscribe to the concept of International law) such as the illegal blockade of Gaza, the occupation of Palestinian territory and their ethnic cleansing of East Jerusalem. He might actually grow a pair and try to prevent the submission and humiliation of the Palestinian people by the Zionist state.

Maybe if he doesn’t have to worry about AIPAC spies and blackmail (and just the possibility of assassination) he will actually stand up to Israel’s constant threats of external annihilation. A successful tactic they have used since their inception to excuse their wars and abuses and keep their population scared of all those “evil Muslims” that want to exterminate them.

Maybe he will even have enough of a pair to stand over Bibi and rip up his cartoon drawing of bomb telling him “no more”.

Maybe one day even Jews and Non Jews can live in a secular Israel/Palestine together as equals.

We can only dream.

Whatever is happening another war in the Middle East is not what we need right now!

So how long do after that comical performance by Bibi at the UN do you expect to see US and UK troops fighting for Israel against Iran once Bibi’s “red line” is crossed on his Road Runner like cartoon bomb?

9.11, WTC-7 and the Pentagon attacks that have led to 11 years of war

September 11, 2012

By Dark Politricks

With another anniversary of the 9.11 attacks about to pass there are plenty of questions that remain unanswered and a growing number of people who are realising that the official conspiracy theory as preached by the US government is still just that, a theory which hasn’t been proved in the eyes of millions of enquiring minds.

The number of people who are happy to accept conspiracy as a legitimate explanation for an event is growing day by day and when articles are posted online designed to attack believers in alternative views (such as the recent Demos article) the comments quickly fill up with messages attacking the articles premise. This shows that the public are perfectly aware conspiracies do occur, that false flag attacks are a tool used by intelligence agencies of all shape and form and to dismiss this reality as nothing more than crazy talk is the favoured mechanism of those who benefit from stifling such discourse.

This is not to say that all conspiracy theories are equal and whilst history proves that the rich and powerful often collude to the detriment of the public the number of ill thought out or illogical theories that litter the web have had the effect of tarnishing debate of a legitimate subject matter that is most definitely based in reality.

There have been many conspiracy theories regarding 9.11 ranging from the complex to the ridiculous however just because some theories are easily debunked does not mean that all if them can be ignored. I for one have been back and forth over this subject many times and whilst I currently believe that sections within the US intelligence agencies at some level had pre-knowledge of the attacks I do not claim to hold all the answers.

Not only has the secrecy surrounding the attacks helped breed a myriad of competing theories it has helped cast aspersions on the governments own possible collusion whatever level that may have been. When the government refuses to hold a full public enquiry into events of such magnitude, when they collude with the one investigation actually held to withhold evidence, when they refuse to release videos and other evidence which could dispel many conspiracy theories for “national security” reasons it does nothing more than increase skeptisism in an already suspicious public about their motives.

For example the US government could easily release the numerous tapes confiscated from around the Pentagon in the aftermath of that attack to dispel rumours that a missile and not a large ariliner hit the building. Numerous cameras from surrounding hotels and garages had their footage confiscated shortly after the attack and even if these tapes do not show anything regarding the approach and impact then they should be released anyway otherwise people will always claim that the government is hiding footage of whatever really hit the building.

Without publicly accessible evidence of the impact there will always be questions over the Pentagon attack which left a small hole in the building wall before it’s collapse. The dimensions of the hole do not seem to fit those of a Boeing 757 and there is the question of how a plane of that size reportedly flew 400 mph at only 30ft above the ground to hit the first floor of the building without hitting the ground first.

Experienced pilots claim this feat would have been impossible for an inexperienced pilot such as Hani Hanjour who had been denied the usage of a small Cessna 172 which he had tried to rent because he was such a bad pilot.

Others believe that the the immense down-force from the plane would have prevented it from flying so close to the ground at such speeds and that it would have crashed into the ground leaving marks on the untouched Pentagon lawn way before the walls that it reportedly hit.

An analysis of the flight data recorder from Flight 77 which hit the Pentagon shows a so far unexplained discrepancy between the altitude of the plane and what supposedly happened which meant that the lamp posts which the plane supposedly hit would have had to have been 440 feet high for the plane to have brought them down.

This data which has been released by the National Transportation Safety Board also means that the planes altitude is in direct conflict with the only CCTV footage that has been released of the impact. Either the data from the black box is wrong somehow (e.g it was edited before being released) or the plane didn’t actually hit the lamp posts and then crash into the Pentagon.

The following video is a good 3D reconstruction of what supposedly happened during the Pentagon attack. Notice that the plane flies parallel to the ground for some considerable time, knocking over the lamp posts and then hitting the Pentagon.

Another issue proponents of the missile theory claim “proves” their argument is the lack of physical evidence after the crash. There are many witnesses on record saying that there was little or no plane debris which has been picked up on as supporting the idea that no plane actually the building however the following video shows how a plane can literally disappear leaving little or no discernible body parts when it’s flown at high speed into a wall.

This test was carried out in the 80’s to see whether a Japanese nuclear power station could withstand an airplane hitting it. They used a rocket-propelled, 27-ton F-4 Phantom jet, attached to a sled, aimed to hit a 3.7 meter thick slab of concrete at a speed of about 475 miles per hour which is the same speed that Flight 77 reportedly hit the Pentagon.

As you can see from that video the plane is totally pulverised and not much remains to be identified afterwards.

So what do I make of it all? There is a clear case of contradictory evidence in that the flight data that was released to the public is either wrong somehow or it is correct and the plane didn’t hit the Pentagon meaning that something else did.

Lots of witnesses claim to have seen the plane hit the building which means that either they are all lying or a plane did hit the building. I am going with the latter as I believe that personal witness statements should be treated as the key pieces of evidence they are. Many people in the 911Truth community will claim that there were a multitude of witnesses who heard and saw explosives go off at the World Trade Center and then claim that all the witnesses who saw the Pentagon crash were plants and in on the conspiracy. They cannot have it both ways.

This does not resolve the issue of the hard to make aerial manoeuvres that inexperienced pilot Hani Hanjour had to have made to fly the plane so close to the ground and hit the building as he did. I don’t know the answer to this but one explanation would be that he wasn’t flying the plane at all and someone or something else was controlling it which might explain how it managed to fly such a complicated dive and then manage it’s fast parallel entry towards it target without crashing before hand.

Whatever actually happened it would be nice if the US government could release all the other video footage taken from cameras around the Pentagon even if they don’t show anything regarding the impact. I don’t know why they would want to keep confiscated footage if it didn’t show anything related to the event but the release of this footage would help clear up a lot of questions.

Whilst the Pentagon is an interesting and some what puzzling topic on it’s own I think the question of World Trade Center 7 is most troubling for the following reasons:

  • We have a large building that was not hit by a plane, only falling debris, that fell into it’s own footprint in a few seconds looking exactly like a controlled demolition.
  • The only investigation into this buildings collapse is a fundamentally flawed NIST report that relied purely on a computer model to explain the collapse.
  • This model, which they won’t release the data for, put the cause down to thermal expansion a totally new explanation for a buildings collapse.
  • This expansion was generated within the computer model by only heating the steel beams and not the concrete floor slabs which is totally unrealistic and a clear case of fixing the outcome by loading the parameters to create the desired outcome.
  • The NIST admits that there is a 2.4 second period during the collapse in which the building falls at freefall speed which defies the laws of physics and which meant that they had to remove their previous claim that the report was consistent with scientific principles.

This last one is a killer point that so far has not been tackled by any debunking site I have come across. In fact I have personally emailed a number of sites asking them to look at this particular point as I would love to hear a rational explanation that explains how this freefall could occur.

Believe it or not I don’t want to be labelled a conspiracy theorist and I don’t choose to believe a theory without it having some merit. On the topic of 9.11 I have a number of questions that I would like answering that at the moment are only explained by some sort of collusion.

As far as I am aware the 2.4 freefall of WTC7 is only explained by a controlled demolition of some kind and for that to have occurred there must have been foreknowledge and the pre-planting of explosives. If this question is answered some other way however I for one am perfectly willing to change my views on the matter and I would urge debunkers to please provide me with such an alternative explaination for this event.

The following video is a talk on the collapse of the Twin Towers which primarily looks at why the Pancake theory was flawed and why if the buildings had fallen naturally and not from a controlled demolition the huge central core columns that the towers were built around should have still been standing even if the surrounding building had collapsed.

And on this 11th anniversary of the events that have led to all of the following:

    • 11 Years of war.
    • Wars with Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen and covert wars with Pakistan and Syria.
    • The implementation of the NDAA and the PATRIOT Act.
    • Powers that allow the Preident to declare war on a whim as he did with Libya ignoring Congress and the War Powers Act.
    • The spectacle of torture, water boarding, CIA Black Sites, Extraordinary Rendition, Gitmo and Abu Ghraib.
    • An enemy that cannot be beaten because we created it in the 80’s. An enemy we have found ourselves fighting on the same side with in Kosovo, Libya and Syria.
    • An endless war on a tactic that can never end because there is no-one to sign a cessation of hostilities or declaration of victory agreement with.
    • A police state that has grown up to an all invasive wet dream of George Orwell fans in which systems like TRAPWIRE and ECHELON watch and listen to your every move.
    • A push to move the war of terror into the homeland and declare protesters as domestic extremists and the new “terrorists”.
    • Free speech zones and constant films of police brutality against anyone daring to stand up to this wall of power.

I would ask you to kindly pay your respects to the victims of the attacks, including the huge number of Fire-fighters and first responders who are now dying from extreme forms of cancer.

I would also like you to just ask yourself with all the regime changing going along in the world at the moment, whether leaders of the moral fibre such as Dick Cheney, George Bush, Tony Blair and Karl Rove etc. Whether they would never, ever, consider putting the lives of innocent people ahead of a war that could push globalist policy objectives that could benefit the west (and themselves) long term – ideas such as those laid out in the Project for a New American Century.

At the very least it 9.11 was a major screw up in which the major players were all rewarded for their screw ups. At the worst it was a covert operation planned by elements across the board using al-Qaeda patsies (as we have been doing recently in Libya and Syria to do our dirty work for us) to carry out the crime.

A crime in which certain people had fore-knowledge and pulled the strings of others letting the blame fall across the Muslim world which we are now at war with.

If you have not read this article already I suggest reading it as well as the comment debate below as it shows the sort of people we are up against when trying to get a proper criminal investigation held into the events of 9.11.

A crime that 9.11 commissioners admitted was carried out or helped out by a foreign country but won’t tell us which one.

I ask you – why should the people who are fighting these never ending wars not know the name of the country involved, it sure wasn’t Iraq and it sure wasn’t mud hut dwelling Taliban Afghans which 92% of have never even heard of 9.11 or even the Twin Towers?

Is a proper criminal investigation with subpoena power too much to ask after 11 years of war that has changed America into the beacon of the free world into a place where the President can lock you up or even have you killed on his decision alone?

A place where mega computer systems watch your every move, listen to your every call and read your every text and then store it in city sized computers for analysis.

A place where the police are indistinguishable from the military and drones fly the US skies and tanks roam the streets.

And most importantly a place in which you are all ruled still by “Emergency laws” enacted after the events of 9.11 which give the President almost dictatorial powers.

Forget the US Presidential election question of “Is your life better than 4 years ago”.

It should be “Is you life better than it was 11 years ago in terms of civil rights, freedom, privacy and security from your own government?”

Ron Paul attacks the beat of war drums to Iran

August 6, 2012

By Dark Politricks

Ron Paul attacks the beat of war drums to Iran an Syria in a speech to Congress.

The Democrat politician Dennis Kucinich gives way to his friend and comrade on many issues regarding civil liberties, war, foreign policy, the FED and many other things, Ron Paul, in the debate on the Iran Sanctions Bill. Or as Ron Paul likes to call it “The Obsession with Iran Act 2012.” A Bill that was passed anyway 421-6.

You can view the full video here: Ron Paul attacks the beat of war drums to Iran

All reasons these two lonely voices are on my Good Guy List.

He says the following:

“A vote for this … will show that it’s just one more step to another war that we don’t need,” the congressman said in an Aug. 1 speech against the bill. “We have not been provoked, [Iran] is not a threat to our national security and we should not be doing this. For the past 10 to 15 years we’ve been obsessed with this idea that we go to war and try to solve all the problems of the world. At the same time, it is bankrupting us.”

“What we continue to be doing is obsess with Iran and the idea that Iran is a threat to our national security,” the congressman said. “Iran happens to be a Third World nation. They have no significant navy, air force, or intercontinental ballistic missiles.”

Do you think we’re protecting civil liberties by arbitrarily dropping drones or threatening to drop drones any place in the world, with innocent people dying?” the congressman said.

“If we want to really care about civil liberties in Syria, why don’t we really care about the secret prisons we have and the history of torture we have in this country?

While the US is making kill lists, it is preaching for civil liberties abroad and “poking our nose in other people’s affairs, just looking for the chance to start another war,” this time in Iran, Ron Paul said.

As Ron Paul says in his speech the Iranian sanctions bill is an act of war and as I have said before we are already at war with Iran and our support of terrorist groups like the MEK and Jundalah who blow up innocent civilians in mosques and scientists in their cars for their Mossad/CIA paymasters is only the scratch of the surface of the covert proxy war already being fought out by US freedom fighters (really) terrorists and the Iranian regime.

As I said months ago America has lost any moral authority it once had in the world by it’s recent foreign policy actions.  It’s hypocritical support of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia as they crush dissent and attack human rights every day whilst bleating on about the abuses in other nations who are not their friends or sell them large quantities of oil whilst holding US military bases in their territories only makes their hypocrisy more visible to the rest of the world.

When the US/UK/French axis of war attacks countries like Iran and Syria for “targeted killings” all the while holding their own “kill lists” ( death by executive order ). They are being more than a little choosy in who they accuse of human rights violations especially as they let one one of the worlds biggest, China, lend them billions of dollars so they can go to war on tick.

All the while they continue to bankrupt America by fighting wars they cannot afford and keep Gitmo open with many innocent detainees still locked up denied the right of habeas corpus.

Plus they still have the massive blemish of torture at prisons from Afghanistan, Iraq and Cuba on their sheet which they need to remove before any moral authority can be restored to their words and actions.

They use drones to kill innocent people all across the world in their “shadow wars” and claim that no civilians have died purely because they count dead males of certain ages as enemy combatants whether they are or not.

Plus who can be bothered to count the dead when a drone drops a bomb in Pakistan that is controlled from Langley. Drones that now fly the skies over the US in a prequel to a Dark Angel world of instant scanning and automated minority report style pre-crime detection.

With a police that is looking more like an armed forces brigade every day. Driving tanks and using special military grade armour and weaponry to break up small protests or break into citizens houses and shoot dead people or dogs who dare bark too loud all the while looking for small amounts of pot.

Or who can forget the recent Occupy Protests in which cops beat up Grannies and held open students noses so that they can shoot pepper spray down their throats  just because they dared to sit down in a peaceful line to protest.

It is no wonder people are wondering why the home of the free has become the home of Orwell’s worst dreams.

Even the upcoming US Presidential election looks like a choice between two useless contestants.

Whoever wins nothing will change unless the American public wake up and vote in someone with morals, a sense of America’s true actions in the world and at least a modicum of knowledge about why half the world wants to kill them.

If only there was some way of the American people showing their displeasure at the road it’s taking that doesn’t involve voting in a GOP version of Obama or keeping a very non-liberal Democrat as President both of which who will do nothing to change the direction America is going in….

Will Mitt Romney actually bring any change to the USA if elected?

July 14, 2012

By Dark Politricks

If you hate Obama – I agree with you.

He is a warmonger, a liar, a tool of the globalists and the banksters he continued to bailout after following in Bush‘s footsteps.

He has brought in laws that destroy Americans liberty like the NDAA, expanded the war on terror as well as numerous other things true Democrats, Conservatives, Liberals or just decent people with morals shouldn’t be happy with.

However if you are a Republican voter, a GOP supporting Mitt Romney lover then I have to ask – what do you think is going to change if he gets elected?

Are jobs suddenly going to come rushing back to the US shores?

He worked for a company that spent it’s time off-shoring American jobs to foreign countries so why would he change his spots now.

Are the wars going to stop in Afghanistan, Pakistan (a supposed ally), Yemen, Somalia and all the other places we probably don’t even know about?

No of course not – the GOP are strong on defence and that means lots of money wasted firing million dollar missiles into mud huts and killing thousands of innocent civilians in the hope of getting one jihadist from a drone. All the while creating future enemies for the military industrial complex to continue sucking money out of US taxpayers pockets in years to come.

Are the banksters who ruined the economy under Bush and previous administrations going to be punished and end up in jail?

No of course not – they haven’t done under Obama and Romney is probably more in the pocket of Wall St than his rival. I don’t hold up hope of seeing the heads of Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan in a court anytime soon.

Are the lost liberties destroyed under the PATRIOT ACT, the NDAA, the Executive Orders, the Signing Letters, the death squads and all the other laws rushed through after 9.11 and then carried on by Obama going to be repealed by Romney?

I don’t think so.

If he was a true lover of the constitution he would rip up those laws, return the USA to a non emergency powers state and return habeas corpus.

He would close Gitmo and try any terrorists they currently have that actually have evidence pointing their way. He would stop targeted killings by drones and try and restore some moral standing in the world for the country that was once a beacon of liberty and freedom.

There is a reason everyone laughs when US UN officials accuse the Syrian government of targeted killings. None of this will happen under Romney in fact even more tax payers money will be wasted creating the terrorists of the future.

So the wars won’t stop, liberty will continue to be destroyed getting the USA ready for it’s next stage as a Chinese labour shop with no worker rights, health care and lengthy prison sentences on the say so of any official with a grudge against you.

So then I ask again what will change if Mitt Romney is actually elected?

Please tell me what you think in this poll.

Quiz Are you only against an American police state when “your man” is in the White House?

June 17, 2012

By Dark Politricks

This a pop quiz to see if you are a free thinker who chooses your morals independently of whether “your guy” is in the White House or someone who sees right and wrong whichever side of the coin is in power.

1. Are you someone who is attacking Obama‘s expansion of the war on terror. His increase in drone strikes and failure to close Gitmo. The  killing by Presidential decree and implementation of civil liberty destroying measures such as increased Internet Spying and the implementation of the NDAA?

2. Were you doing the same when George Bush was implementing the PATRIOT ACT and using warrant-less phone hacking. Allowing his Vice President to have a personal execution team to take out enemies of the state and using extraordinary rendition and torture to gain information from prisoners who were mostly innocent people sold to the Americans by the Afghan warlords. Were you decrying  the implementation of drone attacks which de-link the close up smell and emotion of a killing from the deed turning it to nothing more than a real life video game? Did your protests stop when a Democrat “you could believe in” entered the White House and then carried on the Bush policies?

3. Are you someone supporting the Occupy Wall St’s desire to have real banking reformstop bailouts of casino banks that waste billions on bets or “hedges” like JP Morgans’s recent London Whale and want to close the disparity between the top 1% and the rest of America. Do you mind that during the worst depression of our lifetime the wages of those in the top percent of the country have increased by staggering amounts whereas the lowering, devaluing dollar that means lower and middle class families are seeing real price increases, inflation and lowering living standards?

4. Were you supportive of the original Tea Party and Ron Paul when they were making some of the same claims. Did you change your support of economic policy when Bush left and Obama entered the White House. Do you think it matters who sleeps in the White House bed when the FED can print money, loan out billions to foreign and domestic banks on a whim and devalue the dollar in your pocket without any political oversight?

5. Is it moral or ethical to kill an American citizen without any judicial process even if they are not in America at the time of the killing?

6. What about if they were in America? Should the President be able to sign your death warrant like an English King without your knowledge and without any recourse to  court?

7. Is it okay to kill a Jihadist in Pakistan by drone attack because a CIA agent “thinks” they have the right person in Langley, Virginia?

8. Is it still okay if 50 innocent Pakistani villagers, woman and children are also killed at the same time?

9. What about a thousand people? What number is a legitimate figure for “collateral damage” in these kinds of attacks?

10. What if you later find out that the Jihadist wasn’t killed at all and it was a case of mistaken identity. Was the attack still justified? What recourse should the families of the dead victims have against the American government who is supposedly not at war with Pakistan?

11. If a gang of burglars broke into your house in the middle of the night, shot your dog dead, beat you with sticks and de-humanised you in front of your family. Should you have the right to fight back, to kill if necessary to protect your family and possessions?

12. What if the gang wore SWAT uniforms and were following a false tip phoned in by a jealous neighbour or they thought you were smoking marijuana. Should the fact that the state is the gang of thugs killing your pets and beating you make any difference to your right to defend your family and your property?

13. Do you think Obama is bankrupting the country by increasing national debt?

13. What about President Bush or President Reagan? Does your perspective of national debt change depending on whether you are a Republican or Democrat or is debt, debt no matter who is President? Both Bush and Reagan increased the national debt by huge amounts – what is the difference between  a Republican increasing debt and a Democrat?

14. Do you think Obama wants to turn your country into socialist Cuba by having a health policy that actually allows poor people or those with existing conditions to get affordable health care?

15. What would you do if you lost your job due to a bank bailout and a house repossession caused by policies enacted under George W Bush and you couldn’t afford your health insurance?

16. What would you do if you broke your leg or had a serious disease. How would you treat your condition? Would you use the most expensive health care system in the world by turning up at your local Hospital Emergency department?

17. Do you think that a healthy work force is a productive one? Or should people born into poor families through no fault of their own be left to suffer and die due to lack of money?

18. Do you think war should be decided by Presidential decree alone or that Congress should vote on every decision that sends peoples children into harms way? Should Congress vote according to their conscience or their parties line on the matter?

19. Do you agree with the wars in Iraq and Libya. Were you against the war in Iraq when Bush was President and for the war in Libya when Obama was? Why was  that?

20. Do you want your country to turn into a modern day Police state where all communications are listened to, automatically filtered and then decisions about whether you can leave and enter the country or travel by plane decided by a text message or email?

21. Should the TSA be able to touch your wife’s breasts and touch your children’s bodies all in the name of protecting the homeland from terrorists disguised as 4 year old white boys and 80 year old grannies?

22. Should people be able to speak out about government abuses, criminal acts and actions that break international law if they feel that the people have a right to know? Does the law apply to everyone or just the serfs and not the landowners?

23. Should these whistle blowers be punished for breaking “secrets act” laws or praised for following their conscience?

24. Should the American government force private companies to stop trading with people and organisations that try to bring the truth to the people. Knowledge and misdeeds that your government would rather you didn’t know about such as the illegal bugging of UN dignitaries or the massacre of innocent people in a war zone?

25. Do you want to live in a world where it is increasingly hard to tell the difference between your once free country and a banana dictatorship that kills opponents on a whim, uses torture and prison without trial, prints money to cause inflation and goes to war to distract the people from real problems at home?

26. Do you really think that by electing Mitt Romney as the next US President anything will really change?

27. If Mitt Romney is elected do you think jobs will suddenly come flooding back to America from all those companies like his own and Apple who offshore them to Chinese cheap labour camps?

28. Will Romney stop the FED printing money and will the government never raise the national debt under his presidency?

29. Do you think that he will stop or expand the war on terror and increase it more to the homeland by naming US Citizens as domestic terrorists. Do you think you are on one of the government watch-lists right now?

30. What can you do about it?

Please put your ideas in the comment boxes.

Bush knowingly kept innocent detainees at Gitmo

April 9, 2010

By Dark Politricks

Today’s article in the Times doesn’t surprise me in the slightest. Apparently Bush and Cheney knowingly kept children as young as 12 and OAP’s as old as 93 locked up at Gitmo and refused to released them in case it showed to the world what a shambles their terrorist detention scheme actually was.

Most of the innocent’s were sold to the Americas for fees of up to $5,000 which is obviously a lot of money to people in Afghanistan and Pakistan so it’s no surprise that ruthless elements of society in the aftermath of invasion managed to round up and sell on to the Americans people who had nothing to do with the “war on terror”. The USA obviously wanted to show to the world how well they were doing in rounding up the terrorists behind 9/11 so it matter little whether the prisoners were real terrorists or just taxi drivers. I can just imagine Dubya sitting there with Cheney being told about the number of innocents and him chuckling “So what, they all have brown skin and funny sounding names, Fuck em!”.

Today’s claim however is unusual in that it actually comes from an ex member of Bushes government, a Colonel Wilkerson, who was General Powell’s chief of staff when he ran the State Department. He has decided to support a lawsuit filed by an Guantánamo detainee, Adel Hassan Hamad, who is trying to sue the American government for his detention and torture at Guantánamo Bay from March 2003 until December 2007.

Referring to Mr Cheney, Colonel Wilkerson, who served 31 years in the US Army, asserted:

“He had absolutely no concern that the vast majority of Guantánamo detainees were innocent … If hundreds of innocent individuals had to suffer in order to detain a handful of hardcore terrorists, so be it.”

Apparently the innocent men and children’s detention was all worthwhile and necessary as long as a few genuine terrorists were captured as well. It seems that in the desire for war with Iraq the Bush regime would go to any lengths necessary to find any link, no matter how flimsy or coincidental between Saddam and the 9/11 attacks. As long as they could spin the tortured evidence in such as way as to “prove” to a gullible public and bought and paid for press that the Middle East’s then bad boy was actually behind the 9/11 attacks it was all gravy. They didn’t care whether the “facts” didn’t fit they just wanted some justification for their long-planned Iraqi war of aggression which reminds me of the famous quote by Albert Einstein: “If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts”.

Nothing surprises me much any more and I would expect nothing less from the Bush regime who seemed to have been nothing more than a cabal of right wing loons and Christian fundamentalists. They claimed to be on a mission to save the world for democracy, the problem is they killed, maimed and fucked up a lot of that world on the way.

Afghans call Bagram US Air Force base “Obama’s Gitmo”

February 2, 2010

Russia Today
Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

By detaining people during night raids and torturing them in Afghan field prisons, the US military officials are not battling the insurgency, but actually creating it, believes investigative journalist Anand Gopal.

“I do not think it is realistic that they are going to pull out [of Afghanistan] by the end of 2011,” said Gopal, adding that American troops in Afghanistan will be there for five to seven years. “It really depends on how the war turns in the next couple of years.”

“The Afghan state cannot survive without foreign [funding]. If the US government stops financing it, the Afghan government will collapse tomorrow. The military, the police – everything is propped up by the US. So they completely rely on the United States,” explained Gopal.

The next year is going to be crucial for US forces in Afghanistan, predicts Anand Gopal, because “it will really test whether the troop surges work.”
