Putin’s article in the New York Times was right

Putin’s article in the New York Times was right

By Dark Politricks

As the recent article in the New York Times shows, when it comes to getting an outside perspective on your own Government, even an ex KGB, dictator who suppresses his own people can be right sometimes.

He definitely has his faults and no-one can claim him to be a beacon of light for liberty but then can we really honestly claim that our western leaders are?

Is Obama really the shining light of American exceptionalism that Putin attacks for arrogance beyond belief? As he tells the US public:

“It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation,” Mr Putin wrote.

“There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too,” he wrote. “We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.”

Putin also wrote in the NYT today that it was the Syrian rebels, and not the Syrian government, who were behind a recent alleged chemical attack. Evidence upon evidence seems to back this up. Yet for some reason the western press seems to ignore all the reports from Turkey, Russia and Syria when they find chemical weapons factories or stashes of weapons ready to be unleashed.

As he himself admits, no-one doubts chemical weapons were used in Syria, the only question is by who. As Putin says in the article:

“there was no doubt that chemical weapons had been used in the Syrian conflict but “there is every reason to believe it was used not by the Syrian Army, but by opposition forces, to provoke intervention by their powerful foreign patrons, who would be siding with the fundamentalists.”

This would fit with all the intelligence we have seen in the alternative media over the past months that seem to suggest plans to stage provocations using chemical weapons that could be blamed on Assad including:

Hacked emails from defense contractor Britam that revealed a plan apparently“approved by Washington” , to stage a chemical weapons attack in Syria and blame it on the Assad regime.

Raids by Turkish security forces who found a 2 kg cylinder filled with sarin gas after searching the homes of Al-Nusra Syrian militants in Adana.

Earlier independent UN investigations into the use of chemical weapons which found that previous chemical weapon attacks were carried out by Syrian rebels NOT the forces of President Assad.

The Syrian rebels have already claimed they are willing to unleash chemical weapons on Israel from Assad controlled areas of Syria. Will that be the ultimate false flag attack that starts the war, Putin warns that it might.

No one doubts that poison gas was used in Syria. But there is every reason to believe it was used not by the Syrian Army, but by opposition forces, to provoke intervention by their powerful foreign patrons, who would be siding with the fundamentalists. Reports that militants are preparing another attack — this time against Israel — cannot be ignored.

He wants to wait for the inspectors to report on their findings and not let the US just blatantly ignore the international law they helped set up after WWII to start another Iraq style mis-adventure in the Middle East. What is the point of having the UN if members can just bypass the rulings of the security council whenever they like?

The US/UK/France might not like it when Russia and China veto their proposals over starting wars in Libya or Syria but then the US blocks every measure at reigning in the excesses of Israel. It is the pot calling the kettle black. We either stick to the laws made after World War II that any country starting a war of aggression is an illegal act or we might as well throw the whole concept away.

As recent events in the ancient Christian village of Maaloula have shown the Sryian rebels are not “freedom fighters” but suppressors of liberty. Video’s have been released of even the “moderate” Free Syrian Army rebels eating the entrails of dead victims and video’s and stories abound of beheadings, stonings and summary executions.

Is it really sensible to swap one dictator who has allowed Christians and Muslims to live side by side for centuries for an al-Qaeda strong hold where people are forced at gun point to convert to Islam? Why are we so willing to stand side by side with the supposed enemy we have been fighting against for the last decade?

Does America really want another Iraq on their hands?

Putin thinks it’s foolish if they do and it seems that the majority of American citizens do as well.

Putin may not be John Kennedy or Martin Luther King but someone needs to talk some sense into the neo-con warmongers before they unleash hell in the Middle East. If that means Vladimir Putin, the strong-arm leader of Russia then so be it. It only adds to suspicions by many that this proposed war is another under the table proxy battle for reasons our leaders won’t readily admit.

Here we go again – more lies, propaganda and war

Here we go again – more lies, propaganda and war

By Dark Politricks

With Israel launching missiles attacks on Syria it seems that they are totally unafraid of igniting a regional war that could see the Middle East end up in flames.

I suppose they are hoping that if Syria retaliate, either itself or by proxy i.e Hezbollah, that the US will ramp up it’s already fast paced move towards arming the Syrian rebels and join in any killing games that seemed to have been planned for the region.

Do we really want another war in the Middle East?

Have we learnt nothing from Libya?

We supported the rebels and now they hate us. Terrorists kill US ambassadors, religious fanatics destroy UK world war cemeteries and rebel gangs control large segments of the country.

The people are no better off than they were under Gaddafi and they most certainly have no love for us even though we armed and backed them in their cause.

Have we learned nothing or is the actual idea to really destabilise the region by arming Islamic fascists with high-tech weaponry so that the blow back can drift our way once again?

When the Free Syrian Army is such a mismatch of various secular and religious groups with just a smattering of al-Qaeda, are we really wise to be sending heavy arms and training to them when we don’t know what they will do with it once any civil war is over.

Why is it we keep finding ourselves on the same side as our supposed mortal enemy. Supposedly fighting al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and Yemen and then backing them in Libya and now Syria?

Do we have such few moral absolutes that we can support al-Qaeda in Syria just because we don’t like President Assad and nor do they?

The guns and rockets we supplied to the same rag-tag bunch in Libya haven’t been handed back to us in a neat pile and instead rebel commanders with links to the LIFG and al-Qaeda control cities and fight each other daily.

This is all in-between carrying out racial executions and implementing Sharia law where it didn’t exist before.

That’s not even mentioning the current mess in Egypt!

The US is currently on a mission to try to convince Russia to arm Syrian rebels, pretending that it won’t lead to another Libyan style mess.

This is something I doubt the Russian’s will go for seeing that they feel tricked after the last UN resolution they fell for. They backed a no fly zone over Libya to protect civilians and then the axis of war turned it into a “no limits” full-out armed assault on Gaddafi’s troops.

We took sides in a civil war we had no right to be in when we were just supposed to be protecting civilians from being attacked from the air – from both sides.

The same is happening in Syria.

We know LibyaSaudi Arabia and the Qataris are sending rebel fighters to Syria and they are being covertly backed and supported by Israel, Turkey and through them the USAUK and France.

A recent independent UN investigation into the use of chemical weapons suggests that the attack was carried out by Syrian rebels NOT the forces of President Assad.

However despite evidence to the contrary the USA is keen to pin the blame on Assad for any use of biological or non conventional weapons.

Ms Del Ponte, a former Swiss attorney-general and prosecutor with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia said on Swiss TV that there was “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof” that the rebels had used the nerve gas Sarin – a favourite of home-grown terrorists.

Sarin is a colourless, odourless liquid or gas which can cause respiratory arrest and death and is therefore classed as a weapon of mass destruction and is banned under international law. This undoubtedly means that the USA, Russia, China and most other countries have huge hidden stockpiles, for research and defensive purposes of course….

However it seems that the axis of war is keen to pin any blame for the use of chemical weapons on the Assad regime even if the finger is pointing the other way. Remember evidence only matters when it backs up the pre-written script we are all supposed to follow.

The matter is complicated even more by earlier reports from hacked emails, from the defense contractor Britam, that the US has already discussed the use of a false flag chemical attack in Syria.

This attack would then be pinned on government fighters and provide the perfect excuse to escalate the war and allow US troops to enter Syria with “public” backing.

As this earlier article discusses. If President Obama can be linked to a staged chemical attack on civilians then this is nothing more than a war crime.

The leaked emails, obtained by a hacker in Malaysia, feature an exchange (click here for screenshot) between Britam Defence’s Business Development Director David Goulding and the company’s founder Philip Doughty.

Phil

We’ve got a new offer. It’s about Syria again. Qataris propose an attractive deal and swear that the idea is approved by Washington.

We’ll have to deliver a CW to Homs, a Soviet origin g-shell from Libya similar to those that Assad should have.

They want us to deploy our Ukrainian personnel that should speak Russian and make a video record.

Frankly, I don’t think it’s a good idea but the sums proposed are enormous. Your opinion?

Kind regards

David

The fact that the plan involves delivering a CW (chemical weapon) that is “similar to those Assad should have,” clearly suggests that the idea is to stage a false flag chemical weapons attack that could be blamed on Assad by Gulf states like Qatar and NATO powers.

If reports of a chemical attack are true and the US is refusing to even consider that the rebels could have been involved then it would seem that this earlier false flag plan is already on the way to being rolled out.

Let’s not forget that Dick Cheney was prepared to stage a fake shoot up in the Strait of Hormuz to start a war with Iran which was exposed by legendary investigative reporter Seymour Hersh and that Tony Blair and George Bush discussed shooting down a UN marked plane over Iraq to start their desired conflict with Saddam Hussein.

Therefore our current batch of leaders are not opposed to such devious and underhand tactics so don’t be surprised to learn they are a common tool to start wars all the way though history from the gates of Rome to the Gulf of Tonkin.

So whilst Israel lobs missiles into SyriaTurkey allows rebels to cross their border for protection and the Sunni regimes in Saudi Arabia and Qatar finance the operation we are just sitting on the side lines awaiting the “right incident” that can be used as propaganda to draw our own forces into war.

Why not send our own sons and daughters into the desert once again to fight President Assad’s regime, once he goes it makes it so much easier to attack Iran from all sides.

I have no doubt Israel will try it’s best to bring the US in by trying to provoke a retaliatory attack from Syria or Hezbollah and with the USA preparing to launch another massive round of war games in the area it is just perfect timing that a huge armed force is arriving almost on queue.

Just be-warned.

We were lied into a war with Iraq and we have had attempts to lie us into a war with Iran.

Not only is the nuclear issue being falsely cranked up whilst the NPT compliant Iran hasn’t even broken any international rules yet but the driver of war Israel, sits upon a massive pile of unregulated nukes and outside the NPT. Who are they to say who can have nukes?

Plus wasn’t it Israel who said bin-Laden was being hidden by the Iranians? A bit hard seeing he was either already dead or being propped up in a chair in Pakistan for shooting practise by a number of soon to be dead Navy Seals.

Therefore let the propaganda begin, the lies start spinning and get ready to see more sons and daughters who have no fight in this civil war die for another countries geo-political ambitions.

It has been written in the stars, let the bull shit and spin begin.

Turkish fighter planes force down Syrian flight bringing the nations closer to war

Turkish fighter planes force down Syrian flight bringing the nations closer to war

By Dark Politricks

If you haven’t heard, and you probably haven’t if you are hooked into the mainstream media, tonight a Syrian plane taken Russian passengers to Damascus was intercepted by Turkish F16 planes and diverted to Ankara, Turkey.

Reports from passengers and aircrew have rang up the Russia Today news channel and claimed that they have been beaten by masked men, forced to sign papers they don’t understand and had their luggage checked.

However the BBC News report I have found makes no mention of this and as expected takes the western talking point of a legitimate “stop n search” tactic which may have prevented arms getting to the Assad regime.

Turkey is reportedly trying to stop weapons getting into Syria and the Turkish foreign minister has claimed that the passengers will be allowed to continue but luggage found on the plane will not.

However from non axis of war aligned country reports Turkey has been allowing weapons to flow to the Free Syrian Army for a long time so they are only trying to stop weapons getting to the Assad regime and not in general to lower tensions in general between both sides of the conflict.

“..because of the clear evidence that we received, we negotiated with our prime minister and decided to let the plane fly on to Syria with the passengers, but we are going to hold on to the material because of the ongoing investigation and the next steps.”

“Our investigation is continuing. Since there might be materials that were supposed to be declared but have not been, we are holding this material in our hands to continue to inspect.”

From an article on Russia Today which is telling the story at the moment.

Earlier, Davutoglu said that Ankara had received intelligence that the Syrian plane was carrying “certain equipment in breach of civil aviation rules,” but refused to comment on the presumed content.

The Turkish authorities were interested in some spare parts, which a businessman bought in Russia and was transporting to Syria, passenger Fatima Al-Saman told RT. She said they were clearly not weapons.

“They started unloading some packages. They opened them, took pictures. There were many people. We all saw what was in there. There were no weapons. You could see it with an unaided eye!” she said.

It seems that after last weeks possible false flag attack in which NATO weapons were fired from within Syria back into Turkey killing a number of Turkish citizens, it seems that the western axis of war UK/USA/France is prepared to go down the “one attack on a NATO country is an attack on all” route to get their war.

They are doing this as they have been blocked in the UN at every turn by Russia and China who want to see mediation between both sides in the conflict, and not be tricked into signing up to another UN declaration that could lead to another NATO led war like the one in Libya.

As the RT.com news channel reported.

The mortar used to attack the Turkish town of Akcakale is a design specific to NATO and was given to Syrian rebels by Ankara, according to Turkey’s Yurt newspaper. The mortar killed one adult and four children from the same family on Wednesday.

An article by the paper’s Editor-in-Chief, Merdan Yanardag, states that the newspaper received information from a reliable source, which claimed that Turkey itself sent the mortars to rebels in the so-called “Syrian Free Army.”

Turkey is a longtime member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and they’re going to act in conjunction with other NATO powers, so it’s unsurprising that this has happened,” editor of the Pan-African news wire, Abayomi Azikiwe, told RT.

If the UN route has been blocked due to Russian and Chinese vetoes in the same way the USA vetoes all votes on Israeli misconduct, assassinations, attacks on civilian populations and breaches of international law. It seems that the NATO “defense” route is the one that will be used to start the neo-cons next war in the Middle East.

I have already reported on this site how we are basically backing al-Qaeda terrorists, ex Gitmo detainees and religious fanatics that make up the various rebel groups that combine under the banner of the “Free Syrian Army” in the same way as we backed them in Libya.

Either we are so short sighted that we cannot see the mess we created by supporting the same type of people in their overthrow of Gaddafi in Libya.

A country that is currently in a huge mess, with mass executions of ex Gaddafi supporters, the torturing of prisoners, disparate rebel groups controlling different towns including an ex LIFG terrorist, Abdel Belhaj,  ruling the “armed forces” in Tripoli.

This is the same ex al-Qaeda affiliate who was tortured on MI6 orders by the USA at Guantanamo Bay and is trying to sue the British government for doing so.

We either seem to have very short memories OR we are deliberately trying to destabilize whole areas of the Middle East to weaken support for our intended “end” enemy Iran.

A war with Iran that would drive up the price of oil, cause terrorist attacks across the western world and possibly start another World War by drawing in Russia and maybe even China.

Maybe there are even Great Depression economists advising the USA/UK/French axis of war that another World War is needed to bring ourselves out of our current global depression we are suffering in the hope of repeating the economic stimulus that was the build up of the Military Industrial Complex before World War II.

Maybe they see a big war as just what the pragmatic economist doctor would order.

Plus a few million people killed in any future global war can only be a good thing for these Malthusian followers as it will decrease the population in such a way we have not had for over 50 years now.

We have “been lucky” over the centuries that every 50 years or so an economic downturn has been followed by war, death and then a generation of peace makers who try to resolve the problems that led to the last crisis.

We are now two/three generations from those who led us to destruction in World War II and we have just had another boom and bust economic crisis which only leaves the subsequent war to come along and “clean the pipes” so to speak.

We already have the formation of far right groups gaining in political power across Europe in re-action to the imposed austerity policies being implemented on their populations by the bureaucrats in Brussels and their paymasters in Germany.

If anyone hadn’t realised so far the EU has had the direct opposite effect to the one it was created for – to wrap Germany tightly into Europe and stop if from dominating the continent.

Instead Germany is now installing leaders in countries, demanding austerity measures that don’t work, job cuts, tax rises and social security cuts in return for bail out funds despite the proven fact that austerity does not lead to growth.

Plus Angela Merkel is greeted wherever she goes with Hilter salutes and hundreds of police to protect her fr0m barrages of Molotov cocktails.

  • Have a major national debt and huge deficit? Answer: Sack thousands of people and cut pay therefore reducing income tax to the treasury and increasing unemployment benefit pay outs. Reduce education and training, ensure your brightest talent leaves the country for one not undergoing “austerity measures” and hope the nations GDP just grows by magic.
  • Got a severe world food shortage? Answer: Kill the hungry.
  • No jobs for millions bankrupted by the global bankster created depression? Answer:  Send them to die fighting in foreign deserts in another unrequired war.
  • Need a major distraction to the bankster controlled global economy and the mass protest groups growing in strength in Europe and America? Answer: Start World War III to scare everyone witless and keep them distracted from the real enemies of this global Shakespearean play.

Conspiracy theory or plans being seriously considered?

I suppose it all depends on where you get your news from.

Here is an RT.com report on the plane hijacking that would definitely start a war if it had been Syria diverting a Turkish plane full of American passengers on it’s way to the USA into their airspace.

Judge’s order to seize COSMIC documents sends Turkey’s “Deep State” into crisis

January 9, 2010

By Wayne Madsen

(WMR) — Turkey’s “Deep State” of military, intelligence, and law enforcement officers, linked to the CIA and Israel’s Mossad through the Ergenekon network of spies and “false flag” operatives, has been shaken over the decision of Ankara Judge Kadir Kayan to order NATO COSMIC Top Secret rooms at the Turkish Special Forces Command’s Tactical Mobilization Group in Ankara to be searched by civilian prosecutors and police.

“COSMIC” is a NATO classification and the investigation of the shadowy Ergenekon network has turned up evidence that COSMIC documents may contain proof that Turkey’s Special Operations forces were planning to assassinate top Turkish political leaders, including Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc.

There are also reports that the Turkish military, with the support of the United States and Israel, was planning a military coup against President Abdullah Gul and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip ErdoÄŸan. The Turkish leaders have been highly critical of Israel’s bloody invasion of Gaza, code named “Cast Lead,” and Washington’s call for increased sanctions on Iran.

The documents seized by prosecutors and police may also show that the CIA’s “Gladio” networks, so-called “stay behind networks” established in NATO and neutral countries during the Cold War to coordinate sabotage in the event of a Soviet invasion and occupation, may have continued in Turkey and serves as the core component of Ergenekon.

Some of the seized NATO COSMIC Top Secret documents involve the operations of Gendarmarie Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism Organization (JITEM), which was composed of Turkish special operations forces and police who carried out assassinations of academics, Kurdish politicians, and even fellow military personnel in terrorist attacks that were blamed on the Kurdish Workers’ Party (PKK), deemed a “terrorist” organization by Turkey and the United States.

The documents may also reveal the involvement of the CIA, as well as top Turkish military and MIT intelligence personnel in the 1978 assassination of Turkish prosecutor Dogan Oz. Oz was the first prosecutor to investigate the CIA’s Gladio operations in Turkey. Since the investigation of the NATO COSMIC Top Secret documents began, prosecutor Mustafa Bilgili and Judge Kayan have received death threats.

WMR has also learned that some of the COSMIC Top Secret documents seized in Turkey point to an American “Deep State” Pentagon counterpart to the Turkish Ergenekon network. Former FBI Turkish translator Sibel Edmonds spoke of this network being uncovered by wiretaps of U.S. political leaders and Turkish lobbyists in the United States.
