Take Pentagon head Chuck Hagel’s tour of Israel and the “friendly” GCC (the de facto Gulf Counter-revolution Club) last week. US defense contractors had the Moet flowing as Hagel merrily congregated with that prodigy of democracy – United Arab Emirates (UAE) Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed – to celebrate the sale of 25 F-16 fighter jets.
There’s more on the way; 48 Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD missile interceptors, at a cool US$1 billion. The Pentagon is sending one of its only two of such systems to Guam this month to counter that other threat – missiles from North Korea.
The weaponizing free fest to Israel and the Gulf petro-monarchies – missile defense, fighter jets, mega-bombs – could not but be duly hailed as the proverbial “message” to “counter Iran’s nuclear ambitions”, or “the air and missile threat posed by Iran”, or the general “worry about Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon” or “Washington’s determination to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.”
There’s no “red line” here; just hardcore weaponizing of Israel and the GCC. Any doubts, blame it on Iran. And this while Saudi-controlled media in the Middle East – roughly everything except al-Jazeera – was breathlessly spinning that Tel Aviv is pursuing a deal to use Turkish soil for an attack on Iran.
Wait; there’s more weaponizing on the way – bound to neighboring latitudes. Kraus-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) from Germany closed another $2.48 billion deal with Qatar – five years in the making – to deliver 62 Leopard 2 tanks and 24 self-propelled howitzers. Qatar is not exactly using them for the 2022 FIFA World Cup; they are bound to “friendly groups in other countries” – as in Syria’s “rebels”, via Turkey.
Ask the Nenets
Now take the Syria chemical weapons charade. The White House now seems to be convinced that the CIA believes, with “varying degrees of confidence”, that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons. Secretary of State John Kerry – an “intervention” cheerleader posing as a dove – was already convinced.
But then Hagel said, “Suspicions are one thing; evidence is another.” Just to flip-flop a little while later, during his visit to Israel, he became convinced Bashar al-Assad was using sarin gas. Of course; after all, Hagel finally had unimpeded access to Israeli – not US – intel.
And now for the beauty of Hagel’s marketing; what about embarking as a traveling salesman to “our bastards” with a sales pitch of ” Look, Iran and Syria are both crazy, you might consider stacking up on this, this and this.”
The Nenets of Siberia – crossing the Ob river to enter the Arctic Circle – could teach a thing or two about real strategy to those limping armchair warriors in US Think Tankland. Even the Nenets would know that the current chemical weapons hysteria is a total fabrication by the CIA, MI6 and Israeli intelligence – corroborated by zero evidence. Still, the prevailing Washington “wisdom” is that a “red line” must be enforced over Syria so a “red line” must be enforced on Iran.
The fact is that the al-Assad government initially accused the “rebels” of using chemical weapons – and asked the United Nations for an official investigation.
Even the New York Times was forced, grudgingly, to admit the “rebels” acknowledged an attack happened in territory controlled by the government, with 16 Syrian Army dead, plus 10 civilians and over a hundred injured. But then the “rebels” changed the narrative, blaming Damascus of bombing their own soldiers. It was Moscow that introduced a measure of reality, detailing how Washington was stalling the UN investigation.
Our Nenets of Siberia would also know there’s hardly anything secular leading the “rebels” in Syria; it’s a motley crew of varying degrees of fanaticism. Once again, the Nenets would not need to freeze to death reading the New York Times to find out that the CIA is “secretly” funneling a free for all weaponizing to the “rebels” via Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Still the Obama administration peddles the fiction that Washington only supplies “non lethal” aid as Capitol Hill nutters keep insisting that Obama install a “no fly zone” over Syria – as in Libya-style NATO war remix.
Follow-on strike package, anyone?
US Think Tankland nonetheless is ecstatic that the GCC petro-monarchies now have access to precision-guided munitions to “strike Iranian targets”.
But nothing compares to the cheerleading of Israel’s new access to KC-135 aerial refueling tankers – or Stratotankers. Then there’s the imminent transfer of anti-radiation missiles as well – advanced versions of the AGM-88 HARM missiles. These toys will “reduce the threat to Israel’s follow-on strike package.”
No, this is not exactly about “US circumspection”, or “US resolve in the campaign against Iranian nuclear weapons”; it’s unqualified Dog of War barking.
Meanwhile, that police state run by King Playstation, also known as Jordan, has opened its airspace to Israeli drones now engaged in “monitoring” Syria.
As Asia Times Online has repeatedly warned, Obama in Syria is fast becoming a remix of Reagan in 1980s Afghanistan. We all know what came out of those “freedom fighters” afterwards. In this context, Robert Ford, Obama’s alleged Syria expert, telling the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that it’s important for Washington to “weigh in” to affect “the internal balance of power in Syria” qualifies as a joke line, not a red line.
There’s wild speculation that after the Boston bombing Obama and Russia’s Vladimir Putin made a deal; Washington lets Moscow do whatever it wants in Chechnya like, forever, but gets a nod to install a “no-fly zone” and further mayhem in Syria. There’s no evidence to that. What a geopolitically savvy Putin wants to know is what does he get out of Syria in practical terms (and Obama does not have a clue). Crumbs from a NATO banquet don’t apply.
As for allowing Syria to become a “Western-friendly” Wahhabi emirate or yet another failed Muslim Brotherhood fiefdom, one needs to go no further than Hezbollah’s Sheikh Nasrallah … “the goal of anyone standing behind the war in Syria, is destroying Syria so that a strong, centralized state would not be established in it, and so that it would become too weak to take decisions related to its oil, sea, or borders.”
Now that’s what a red line is all about.

Excerpt from The Master Plan
“My father and his colleague’s findings were staggering. At first, I thought he might have been mistaken, but as I studied the facts, I noticed a subtle, methodical agenda weaving its way throughout the whole affair. After thoroughly examining all of the documents, I was forced to agree with his conclusions.
“Father’s reports contained photocopies of documents and maps that came out of the United Nations conferences and the Convention on Biological Diversity. It was categorized under a project entitled Agenda 21 and the subsection, Sustainable Development. Harsh policies restricting people’s rights and liberties were ratified through international agreements and treaties. Every member of the United Nations was bond by this agreement.
“What was happening in Africa was a mirror of what was taking place all over the world, especially America. After connecting all the dots, there was an obvious plan to reduce the world’s population, seize control of large landmasses, and confine humans to designated island areas.
“America is a nation with many states, yet united under one national head. Africa is a continent, with many independent, separate countries, and according to the United Nations report, the goal regarding Africa and the Middle East was to exploit their vast resources.
“Representatives from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank were sent to the heads of countries rich in natural resources. The process involved an offer to transform the country into the modern, 21st century. Repayment for these transformation loans were in the form of natural resources and taxable labor. If a country’s leader rejected the bank’s offer of eternal indebtedness, the CIA, MI6 or a like agency was used to overthrow the leader by whatever means necessary. If those attempts failed, NATO Peacekeeping Forces were deployed to defend the hired rebels and depose the nation’s leader.
“The international media always supported the rebel forces under the banner of democracy. So out of ignorance the public also supported the rebel forces and their supposed battle for freedom. The resisting leader was dethroned and replaced with a tyrannical shill for the international bankers whose sole intent was to exploit the country and the people. This was happening all over Africa and the Middle East.
“At this time, my father and I noticed government-instituted, United Nations family planning centers cropping up in surrounding towns. These family planners held town hall meetings and presented videos that strongly advocated vaccines, contraceptives, sterilization and abortions. These videos were mere propaganda pieces to convince the people to be a participant in the family planners’ program of infanticide. As an inducement, they offered medical supplies and food rations.”
“Why are you calling it infanticide?” I interrupted. “At least one organization was making a sincere effort to address the people’s needs.”
“Killing a three week old infant in the womb or a three year old child is infanticide, Lance.” she retorted. “They were teaching the women that a three years old child was no different than an unborn fetus, since both were unable to make knowledgeable decisions.
“With no questions asked, a mother could deliver her three years old child, or younger, to the United Nations Planners for termination,” Monique responded with disdain.
“Africans have always believed in large families, possessed strong family ties and heterosexuality relationships. Under normal conditions, Africans would never agree to be sterilized, and they certainly would not hand over their children to be murdered. With Africa a warzone, the family planners successfully targeted the hardest hit areas.”
“I see your point. Couldn’t your father or his associates intervene?” I probed.
“They tried,” she answered. “This was all part of the United Nations Agenda 21, population control program. But the African project, which was pure eugenics, was special; it was being assisted with funds from billion dollar tax-exempt foundations whose founders controlled large companies and held the purse strings of governments around the world. The sole objective was to reduce the world’s population. According to their own figures, they wanted to eliminate ninety percent of the population, with Africa and the Middle East their number one targets.”
“What was the world’s population at that time?” I asked.
“Oh, roughly eight and a half billion people,” she quipped.
“So we’re talking about five hundred million people left on the planet when they get through with us,” I countered.
“Yes, approximately five hundred million; but we found some foundations demanding it be reduced to one hundred million. With that small number of people on earth, they claimed, they would be able to procreate as they pleased, they would have the freedom to travel anywhere on the globe un-accosted by commoners, and the whole world would be their playground.”
“That is an awful lot of people to kill, and then bury,” I exclaimed.
“The documents my father discovered provided detailed accounts that every war within the past one hundred years was orchestrated to bankrupt the nations and reduce the population. And yet, war had not significantly decreased the population to their satisfaction.
“The United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) provided planning centers with clinics that administered vaccinations. These centers had a list of everyone’s name living in that vicinity. These centers were guarded by the military who administered server punishment to anyone who refused to be vaccinated. We soon discovered that most of the vaccines were laced with various diseases.
“Father began to advance his research, and his findings revealed documented proof that HIV, along with a number of other viruses had been engineered. Under the cloak of germ warfare, Congress funded a project to find a virus capable of deteriorating the human immune system. During the developmental stages, they grafted an assortment of animal viruses that had been mutated in monkeys and chimpanzees. These viruses were eventually cultured with human cells and ultimately injected into human genes. The final result was a number of very powerful, independent viruses commingled into one. What makes AIDS extremely difficult to eradicate, is the number of individual viruses constituting different strains. Father was also able to locate a patent for the cure of AIDS.
“The strain of AIDS introduced into Africa was far more infectious than strains found elsewhere. It was also discovered that the Negroid gene had a predilection to HIV. In some areas of the African continent, seventy-five percent of the people had tested HIV positive, and in other areas, as high as one hundred percent.
“We also learned that most incidents of HIV positive were not being transmitted through homosexual relationships or promiscuous sexual encounters as disseminated by the press. But instead, HIV, as well as other viruses and diseases were being transmitted through the forced immunization program. This was discovered when seven year old children were testing positive for HIV, yet neither parent was found to be HIV positive.
“Included in this genocide called Societal Cleansing was the culling of the genetically inferior, such as morons, misfits, the maladjusted and the aged. Senior citizens were terminated at fifty years old to prevent a financial and psychological burden on society. This also prevented senior citizen’s opposing and archaic views from being passed on to younger generations.
“The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), was the agency chosen to administer this societal cleansing. This involved restructuring the cities of the world, protecting the ecology against the destructive forces of modern society and the implementation of social equity and the restructuring of life itself. This all fell under the UN Agenda 21’s Sustainable Development program.
“Broad and unbridled authority was given to the EPA to prevent humans from draining the earth’s limited resources. This monstrous plan included every facet of life. Man was considered the most dangerous, destructive, selfish and unethical creature on Mother Earth.
“The law enforcement agency to protect Mother Earth was called the Green Police; they had inclusive authorization to confiscate personal belongings, shut down businesses or operations, and kill anyone that interfered with their agenda.
“The EPA’s Agenda 21 manual, stated:
Global warming, the depletion of fuel, water, food, and the like, is the direct cause of human intervention. The real enemy is humanity itself. The damage people cause the planet is a function of demographics equal to the degree of development. The ecological crisis was really the population crisis. Cut the population by ninety-plus percent and you stop injuring the earth by an equal amount.”
With tongue-in-cheek, I interrupted, “I wonder if any of the UN leaders are willing to sacrifice their lives, or the lives of their children or grandchildren in order to save the earth from the blight of human existence?”
“Well,” she continued, “the presupposition is that Mother Earth has the capacity to regulate or heal herself under natural conditions. But the human species has developed technology to overwhelm the earth’s capacity to heal herself, and she is therefore doomed to destruction unless humans are stopped from their technological assault.
“They depict humans as zombies that must be exterminated to stop their destructive behavior to the earth. The association between human beings and zombies is particularly directed against those that reject Globalism and the Global Warming restructuring programs of the earth, its galactic surroundings, and all life forms are the controlling factors behind this thrust to reduce the population. Those that don’t believe in these programs are portrayed as none-human zombies that exist to consume all they can to satisfy only themselves. But the real reason for this push for population reduction is so that they can have the world as their playground.
“This environmental hocus-pocus merely provided justification for their claim that the population of the world was increasing too quickly, and in order to stabilize the population, at least 350,000 people a day had to be eliminated. Although I agree that the world is over populated, I do not believe killing 350,000 people a day is the solution to the problem.”
I quickly interrupted, “Monique, It’s a fact that the entire population of the world can live comfortably in the State of Texas on an acre per person. So, killing 350,000 people under the pretext of over population is insanity. They’ve purposely herded the masses into the major cities to create the illusion that we’re running out of space and resources, but we’re not. If they’re so bent on reducing the population, I suggest they start with themselves!”
“Most of their efforts,” she continued without comment, “were directed toward the United States. They attributed much of the earth’s devastation to Americans’ standard of living, such as industrialization and their usage of air and earth contaminating products. They claimed that one American burdens the earth more than twenty people from an undeveloped country. I thought it was strange that China was never mentioned, although they are the largest polluters on the planet; it might be due to the fact that they introduced the one child policy.
“It was through the land management policies under Agenda 21 that they confiscated the best areas of the countries and designated them under Biosphere Reserves and World Heritage Sites. All major ecosystems in a region were reserved. To protect these ecosystems, buffer zones were established around them. They defined a buffer zone as an area surrounding any property with restrictions on its use. During the mid-1990s, the United States president donated most of America’s National parks and lands under the Bureau of Land Management, National Rivers and Streams to the United Nations for protection.
“Likewise, the continent of Africa was charted and then divided into major ecosystems for reserve. These conterminous States were encompassed in core reserves with inner corridor zones, which created a wilderness network that dominated a region with human habitations being small islands. They designated a half of the continent as wilderness areas with another fourth as buffer zones. These stringent policies grossly restricted human activity. People lived on small islands communities, they could only travel on the thoroughfares connecting the island communities, and they could never trespass into the buffer zones since they protected the delicate ecosystems. This was being done under a religious hypothesis of protecting Mother Earth against the destructive actions of mankind.”

While Israel believes that the road to Tehran is a straight “pre-emptive” military attack super-highway, the US and UK seem to believe that the road to Tehran runs through Damascus.
This might explain the growing turmoil in Syria that’s being used to try to promote a Libya-like UN Security Council resolution which, if passed, would certainly have Libya-like results…
In recent days, there has been horrific violence in the Syrian city of Homs, as more than 200 people have died in gunfights and bombings. For the Western mainstream media, all the blame lies with Bashar al-Assad’s government, with President Obama spelling out the official line: “Assad must halt his campaign of killing and crimes against his own people now. He must step aside and allow a democratic transition to proceed immediately.” The Western Allies’ strategy of encroachment on Syria and Iran seems to run in parallel and sequentially. Its logic is: if Syria falls, Iran will follow.
As with Iraq and Libya, the US, UK and France tried to impose a UN Security Council resolution laying all the blame on the government, and calling for its immediate resignation. Only this time they’ve been vetoed by Russia and China, who are standing up to the west’s global bullying tactics.
No small matter indeed! For it hinges on how the western allies on one side, and the Russians and Chinese on the other understand the root causes of violence and turmoil in Syria and, by extension, throughout the region. On Syria, the official US/UK/French/Israeli line is that the “Arab Spring” has finally reached Syria. In their usual Hollywoodesque boxing match-like “Good Guys versus Bad Guys” worldview, they seem to tell global public opinion, “in this corner we have heroic freedom-fighters trying to bring “democracy” (US brand, of course!) to Syria; in that corner, we have the mean, fundamentalist antidemocratic Assad regime repressing the people”. It might sound like a great script for some teary-eyed Stephen Spielberg thriller, but the real world isn’t like that…
Rather than saying it’s simply the Assad government turning against its people, Russia and China take a more balanced stance on the internal affairs of Syria, where several factions are in conflict. There are the legal authorities of Syria, and there are armed terrorist throngs taking advantage of genuine social grievances and unleashing violence throughout the country, which in turn triggers police repression. With lesser intensity, similar scenes can also been seen on the streets of London, Manchester, New York, Oakland, Athens and other western cities.
In Syria, such groups are in all likelihood profusely armed, trained, financed and abetted by foreign players, pointing straight at US, UK, French and Israeli intelligence entities: public, private, official, unofficial, overt and covert.
Clearly, this is a much more complex view than Washington’s and London’s easier-to-grasp Walt Disney version of reality with its “bad cat fighting good Tweety Bird” rhetoric.
The UN resolution the western allies are trying to get imposed on Syria is based on a report and proposal emanating from the Arab League under its present Secretary General Nabyl El Araby, which has regressed into a pro-western political and diplomatic tool. Something similar happened to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) under its present Director General Yukiya Amano, as it recently produced a damning report on Iran´s nuclear program based on “intelligence from member states”, implicitly, the US, UK, France and Israel.
What’s happening in Syria today is very bad news for the Syrians, who are becoming the victims of western-style state-sponsored terrorism. Alas! It is, however good news for the rest of the world. And it has made Russia and China stand up to the US, UK, France and Israel: Russia and China are not ready to tolerate a re-run of Iraq and Libya.
It seems today’s foremost geopolitical problem is that the forces running the United States, United Kingdom, France and Israel are increasingly out of control. They have no qualms in risking global nuclear war if that’s what it takes to achieve their political, financial – even Messianic! – objectives. They clearly must be stopped.
A year ago, the western allies launched clandestine operations triggering the so-called Arab Spring, which has brought hundreds of thousands of deaths, injuries, and the destruction and demise of Libya.
Would the western allies dare to include Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine in their list of Arab Spring countries, recommending that they too rise up in arms against their invaders?
Syria is yet another example of western double standards. The west complains about Bashar al-Assad fighting the very terrorists they finance, but says nothing when Israel launches cluster and phosphorus bombs over Gaza’s civilians. They overran Libya “to protect civilians”, but discretely looked the other way when their Egyptian military semi-allies repressed the people, kicking young women senseless on the streets of Cairo.
As US President Franklyn D Roosevelt once replied when an aide pointed out to him that Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somoza was a complete SOB: “Yes! He is a SOB, but he’s our SOB…!”
Right now, Syria is being dragged towards civil war. Can we believe everything the western media report and western governments parrot? Remember the “take-out-Saddam-if-you-don’t-want-to-see-a-mushroom-cloud-over-one-of-our-cities” rhetoric?
Today, Syrian news agency SANA gives a very different story on the Homs episode, reporting that “armed terrorist groups on Monday attacked citizens and law-enforcement members at several areas in Homs… the authorities were pursuing and clashing with them. Armed terrorist groups exploded two explosive devices behind the building of the Technical Services at al-Dablan Neighborhood in Homs. Terrorists also shelled with mortars several quarters in Homs, while others broke into houses in Idleb Governorates. A number of citizens escaped from an armed terrorist group to a mosque in Rastan City, where the armed terrorist group burnt the mosque, killing and injuring some of the citizens”. Why doesn’t the western media report this?
Think of it: if Mossad, the CIA and MI6 are suspected of assassinating Iranian nuclear scientists on the streets of Tehran in veritable exercises of blatant state-sponsored terrorism, couldn’t they be doing this on a much vaster scale inside Syria?
Every time we see horrendous, yet unclear, violence – whether in Egypt, Syria, Iran, Libya, 9/11 in New York or 7 July in London, – two key factors must be unraveled: (1) who benefits? (2) follow the money (who’s paying for the bombs, logistics, bullets, satellite and drone support?)
Perhaps the US, UK and France want to attack Iran, going first through Syria.
Perhaps Israel wants to attack Iran, going directly at it.
Probably, these are two sides of the same coin…

2011 will be remembered as the year the US, Britain, France and Israel went into Imperial Overdrive in North Africa and the Middle East. Will 2012 be remembered as the year those same Western Allies unleashed World War III?
It is not news anymore to say that the West will soon attack Iran, maybe Syria. They have been threatening to do that for years now, certainly ever since the failed Israeli invasion into Southern Lebanon in mid-2006, when they were routed by Hezbollah.
So what is different today? For starters, general circumstances have changed dramatically in the Region. Genuine popular dissent inside key Muslim countries has been used by the Western Allies to train, fund and arm local criminal and terrorist organizations, dubbed “freedom fighters”, as their proxies.
Country after country has fallen victim to the CIA’s, MI6’s and Mossad’s “dirty tricks departments”, and other Western-style terrorist organizations. Results range from moderate “regime change” in Tunisia and Algeria; via horrendous “violence by our boys” in Egypt, Yemen and Bahrain; all the way to outright military attack, civil war and political assassination. Such as the one in Libya, where Hillary Clinton boisterously laughed when she learned Muammar Gaddafi had been murdered live on TV by “her thugs”.
The whole region has been set on fire. Not that other regions of the world are not on fire too; however the pyrotechnics used by the Global Power Elite vary in nature in each geography. For example, Europe, the US and Britain are being set alight using financial terrorism resembling a neutron bomb, which kills people off while leaving assets and banks standing.
Now in Iran the stage seems set for a final show-down. It has taken so long only because Israeli, British and US planners are not stupid; they know that messing with Iran is not like messing with Iraq or Pakistan or Afghanistan or Libya. Messing with Iran will bring Western Allies very dangerously close to messing with Russia and China. If I were in their shoes, I would not do that. Unless…
Unless World War III is what they are looking for. Now, why would they do that? Perhaps, because they have realized that there is just no peaceful way of achieving their dream of World Government. Perhaps because they have understood that the financial quicksand they have backed themselves into is so devastating that it cannot be cleaned up with purely financial, monetary and “legal” measures, in which case…
Nothing beats a good war! Perhaps, because wildcard Israel is so very much in control (or should I say, out of control) that they are imposing the “Sampson Option” not only on themselves, but also on their controlled Western Allies and the whole planet if need be. “After me, the Flood!”
Things in the Strait of Hormuz are extremely dangerous and volatile. After being systematically threatened with unilateral military attack, invasion, and even nuclear strikes, now the Iranians are showing their muscle too. On 24th December, Iran began a 10-day spate of military maneuvers in the strait that has all but put the US, UK and Israel on red alert. A US aircraft carrier force is now in the area and their helicopters have flown dangerously close to Iranian forces. Any spark could set off a conflagration.
Meanwhile, Syria is falling into meltdown. Meanwhile, Israel is preparing “Cast Lead II” over and inside Gaza. Meanwhile, Hezbollah is ready to strike Israel with tens of thousands of very deadly short-range “Katyushka” rockets.
A key sign of impending war is an article just published in the January/February 2012 issue of Foreign Affairs, the official journal of the New York-based Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). It carried the ominous title of Time to Attack Iran: Why a Strike Is the Least Bad Option, by Matthew Kroenig. This man was, until last July, special advisor to the Pentagon for “Defense Strategy on Iran” – Newspeak for “let’s beat the hell out of Iran”.
The CFR is the key Global Power Elite think-tank, founded in 1919 together with its London sister organization, the Royal Institute of International Affairs (also known as Chatham House). Its more than 4500 members are deeply embedded into the uppermost echelons of public and private power in the US, controlling banking, industry, media, academia, the military and government.
Key government posts are always controlled by one of their lot, irrespective of whether the Democrats or Republicans are in power. The CFR is integrated into an intricate network of similar organizations that includes the Trilateral Commission, Brookings Institution, American Enterprise Group, Project for a New American Century, Bilderberg and others. They all operate in streamlined coordination, consistency, synchronization and – most important – with a common purpose.
In his article, Mr Kroenig, assesses how “American pundits and policymakers have been debating whether the United States should attack Iran and attempt to eliminate its nuclear facilities,” concluding that, “The only thing worse than military action against Iran would be an Iran armed with nuclear weapons.”
He warns against “skeptics of military action (who) fail to appreciate the true danger that a nuclear-armed Iran would pose to US interests in the Middle East and beyond.”
This reflects Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s recent remarks when addressing the Brookings Institution’s pro-Israel “Saban Forum” bringing together US and Israeli military strategists that repeated the usual Baby Bush “all options are on the table” threats.
Mr. Kroenig talks of the “dangers of deterrence” and gives the Obama Administration unequivocal advice: “The truth is that a military strike intended to destroy Iran’s nuclear program, if managed carefully, could spare the region and the world a very real threat and dramatically improve the long-term national security of the United States.”
As these pyromaniacs get ready to ignite the regional and global powder keg, one key question looms ever larger: what will Russia do?

The Private Global Power Elite embedded in major governments is dead set on imposing World Government on us sooner rather than later. Let’s look at 12 mega-processes – veritable “Triggers” – that we infer they are using to achieve their goals.
All roads lead to World Government. This should come as no surprise. London’s Financial Times openly articulated this view in an article by their chief foreign affairs commentator, Gideon Rachman, published on 8 December 2009, whose title said it all: “And Now for a World Government.” These goals are echoed by the Trilateral Commission, CFR and Bilderberg insiders – even by the Vatican.
Macro-managing planet Earth is no easy matter. It requires strategic and tactical planning by a vast think-tank network allied to major elite universities whereby armies of academics, operators, lobbyists, media players and government officers interface, all abundantly financed by the global corporate and banking superstructure.
They do this holistically, knowing that they operate on different stages moving at very different speeds:
- Financial Triggers move at lightning speed thanks to electronic information technology that can make or break markets, currencies and entire countries in just hours or days;
- Economic Triggers move slower: manufacturing cars, aircraft, food, clothes, building plants and houses takes months;
- Political Triggers tied to the “democratic system” put politicians in power for several years;
- Cultural Triggers require entire generations to implement; this is where PsyWar has reached unprecedented “heights”.
Risk-managing this whole process takes into account the many pitfalls and surprises in store. So each plan in every field counts, with “Plan B’s” – even Plans “C” and “D” – which can be implemented if needed.
Twelve Triggers for World Government
Today, the Global Power Elite are wrapping up globalization and ushering in World Government. Paraphrasing the tightrope walker in German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche’s “Thus Spake Zarathustra,” this implies “….a dangerous crossing, a dangerous wayfaring, a dangerous looking-back, a dangerous trembling and halting…”
These 12 Triggers are interlinked and interlocked in a highly complex, holistic matrix, very flexible in its tactics but rigidly unbending in its strategic objectives. When read as a whole, the picture that unfolds shows that whole being far more than the sum of its parts.
1) Financial Meltdown. Since 2008, the Global Financial System continues on life-support. Ben Bernanke, Timothy Geithner and the US economic hit team – Robert Rubin, Larry Summers and Goldman Sachs, CitiGroup, JPMorganChase mega-bankers working with the Bank of England and the European Central Bank – have not and will not take any measures to help the populace and ailing economies. They just funnel trillions to the banking elite, imposing the media myth that certain banks are “too big to fail” (Orwellian Newspeak for “too damn powerful to fail”). Why? Because it’s not governments overseeing, supervising and controlling Goldman Sachs, CitiCorp, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, JPMorganChase, but exactly the other way around…
2) Economic Crises. Today, “Destructive Extreme Capitalism” is collapsing national and regional economies, reformatting them into international slave-labour Gulag-like entities that Joseph Stalin would envy. Our woes lie not with the world’s real economy (mostly intact), but with the fake world of finance, banks, and speculation;
3) Social Upheavals. Meltdowns in Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Iceland and – soon to come – Italy, Spain and others, trigger violent social uprisings, even in the US and UK;
4) Pandemics. Get ready for more “flu surprises” leading to mandatory vaccinations: a discreet opportunity to slip RFID chips into our bodies and test “intelligent viruses” targeting specific DNA strains. Racially and ethnically selective viruses as part of mass depopulation campaigns?
5) Global Warming. As the global economy sinks into zero growth mode, economic drivers shift from growth expansion to consumption contraction. Will coming “carbon credits” open the path to full societal control?
6) Terrorist “False Flag” Mega-Attacks. The Elite have this wildcard up their sleeve to jump-start new “crises” as short-cuts towards world government. Will new “attacks” dwarfing 9/11 justify further global wars, invasions and genocide? A nuclear weapon over a major city to be blamed on the Elite’s “enemies”?
7) Generalized War in the Middle East. As we speak, naval forces, bombers, entire armies are poised to attack and invade Syria, Iran…
8 ) Ecological/Environmental “Accidents”. The 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident sparked the beginning of the end of the former USSR by showing the world and the Soviets themselves that their State could no longer manage their own nuclear facilities. April 2010 saw the BP “Deepwater Horizon” oil rig eco-catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico; since March 2011, Japan and the world have been grappling with a much larger nuclear accident in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex. Was foul play involved?
9) Assassination of a major political or religious figure to be blamed on an Elite enemy. Mossad, CIA, MI6 are really good at playing this type of dirty trick;
10) Attacks on “Rogue States” – Iraq, Libya… Who’s next? Iran? Syria? Venezuela? North Korea?
11) Staged “Religious” Event. The growing need of the masses for meaning in their lives makes them easy victims of a Hollywood-staged, 3D virtual reality hologram show, orchestrating a “second coming”. An electronically engineered “messianic figure” acting in sync with Elite global objectives? Who would dare go against God himself?
12) Staged “Alien Contact.” This too may be in the works. For decades, large sectors of world population have been programmed to believe in aliens. Here too, hologram technology could stage a “space vehicle landing” – on the White House lawn, of course – highlighting the “need” for Mankind to have “unified representation” in the face of extraterrestrials. Further justification for world government?
What do such interlocking “crises” have in common? Global warming, pandemics, “international terrorism”, financial collapse, economic depression, even alien contacts? They all serve to show that they cannot be addressed by any single nation state, thus “justifying” the need for World Government.
2012: We must stay especially alert, understanding things the way they really are and not the way the global TV Masters want us to believe they are.

U.S. President Barack Obama will be a lame duck next year and the officials in his administration, especially his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are hilariously doing their best to make sure that they haven’t spared any effort to intervene in the internal affairs of other countries and sabotage the stability and security of those whom they call “enemies”, like Iran.
On October 27, Hillary Clinton gave an exclusive interview to the UK’s state-funded, state-run BBC Persian TV and in an attempt aimed at reaching out to the Iranian nation, made bombastic remarks which have certainly infuriated the Iranian nation and demonstrated that the hostile behavior and antagonistic stance of the U.S. government toward the Iranian nation is a manifestation of the idiom “the leopard can’t change its spots.”
At the beginning of the interview, Clinton referred to the sanctions imposed against Iran by the U.S. and its European allies and said that these sanctions are targeted at forcing the Iranian government into abandoning its nuclear program which she called is an effort to construct nuclear weapons and not for civilian purposes. Forgetting the detrimental impacts of economic sanctions against the ordinary people, Clinton talked of the United States as a friend of the Iranian people, and said that she wanted to reaffirm her country’s “very strong support for and friendship toward the people of Iran.” She further added that the behavior of the United States towards the Iranian government is different from its behavior toward the Iranian people, and by saying that, she clearly paraded her diplomatic naiveté and artlessness. How do you justify enmity with a government which is democratically elected by a group of people which you claim of being supportive of?
Secondly, maybe Mrs. Secretary has forgotten that the U.S. itself is the largest possessor of nuclear weapons in the world. How can such a police state which has so far killed millions of people around the world, from Nagasaki and Hiroshima to Baghdad and Kabul, boast of its concerns about the development of nuclear bombs by a country which is the most pacifist country in a boiling and tumultuous region such as Middle East and hasn’t ever invaded nor attacked any country in the past century?
A Reuters report quoting U.S.officials revealed in May 2010 that the U.S. has an arsenal of 5,113 nuclear warheads. It is the only country which has used nuclear weapons in warfare and the only nation that has conducted around 1,054 nuclear tests and developed many long-range weapon delivery systems. So, who is really entitled to be concerned? Shouldn’t the international community be anxious about the nuclear arsenal of the self-proclaimed superpower, the U.S.? Who may guarantee that the U.S. won’t use its nuclear weapons in the prospective wars which it will be waging in the future? If the criterion of imposing financial sanctions is the possession of nuclear weapons and pursuing the development of them, why shouldn’t the U.S. or its Middle East client state, Israel, which is the sole possessor of nuclear weapons in the Middle East, be the target of sanctions? A report by Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis showed that between 1940 and 1996, the U.S.spent at least $8.15 trillion in present day terms on nuclear weapons development. Which country can be pinpointed on the world map which has invested in nuclear program, even for peaceful purposes, so enormously?
But it was not only Clinton’s deceptive bluffs on Iran’s nuclear program that seemed perplexing and ridiculous. She lived beyond her means by claiming that the international community is angry at what Iran is today and wants a better future for its people!
“But I would ask you to put yourself in the position of the international community and those who seek a better future inside Iran. If you do not want to have a conflict, if you do not want to just give way to behavior that is very reckless, as we saw in this recent plot against the Saudi ambassador, potentially dangerous, sanctions is the tool that we have at our disposal to use,” she said.
Clinton went on to raise the issue of the alleged terror plot against the Saudi ambassador in Washington and attributed this plot to Iran. She, however, certainly remembers that they were agents of the CIA, MI6 and Mossad in Iran that assassinated four Iranian nuclear scientists immediately after their names were put on the UNSC sanctions list. Wasn’t the assassination of Dariush Rezaei, Massoud Alimohammadi or the foiled assassination plot against Fereydoon Abbasi a conspicuous sponsorship of terrorism by a government which calls itself the number one defender of democracy and peace? Wasn’t awarding the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize to the President of such a country which murders and kills people with impunity some kind of degrading and humiliating this prestigious award?
But an interesting juncture in Clinton’s interview with the BBC was where a recorded video containing a question by one of the viewers of BBC was aired. The viewer asked Hillary Clinton about America’s perpetual adherence to double standards, its support for repressive regimes such as Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, its backing of the dreadful coup d’etat against the democratic government of Iran’s then Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh in 1953 and its heinous shooting down of the Iran Air Flight 655 on July 3, 1988 which claimed the lives of 290 innocent passengers including 254 Iranians.Clinton was apparently taken aback by the question as her awkward response showed that the U.S.government has never found any way to account for its hypocritical policies and actions: “we have consistently spoken out about Bahrain and we have pushed the government to do more, and we support the independent investigation… We know that everything we have done in the course of our 235-plus year history is going to appeal to or be supported by everyone, and we take our history seriously. So, for example, we’ve expressed regret about what was done in 1953… And then we also have tried to point out that the tragedy of the shooting down of the airline is something that we deeply are sorry for, and we have said that repeatedly.”
Isn’t it ludicrous? Shooting down a civilian aircraft, killing all the 290 people aboard and then simply saying that we are sorry? Overthrowing a democratic government which reflected the communal will of a nation and then simply saying that we are sorry? Waging wars and imposing sanctions which hurt the daily life of the ordinary people and saying that we are sorry?
Of course Hilary Clinton’s interview with BBC Persian was a fiasco and a political debacle. She just showed her lack of political finesse and once again brought to mind that the wolf may lose his teeth, but never his nature. Clinton is the representative of a country which throughout history has repeatedly betrayed the Iranian nation. Perhaps expressing deepest apologies to the Iranian nation and changing their hostile attitude can be the first step which the American politicians should take in order to have the bitter memories of their mischievousness wiped off the minds of Iranian people.
It does not take a genius to gather that the Israeli aggression towards Iran would endanger every living species on this planet. Devastatingly enough, our Western governments do nothing to stop the Jewish State. That should not take us by surprise: our politicians are largely funded and vetted by Israeli lobbies that openly support attack on Iran.
Here in Britain Defence Secretary Liam Fox had to resign two weeks ago when it became clear that he was ‘breaching ministerial laws’. The British press went out of its way to reduce the issue of his resignation into just another ‘gay-ish mini scandal’. But we actually have strong reason to believe that Fox was working intensively for Israel. He was enthusiastically advocating Israeli interests such as an attack on Iran. Together with his ‘best friend’ Adam Werritty, he was also funded by the Israeli lobby. We know also that Fox and his ‘flat mate’ Werritty were in direct contact with Mossad, and were even warned by MI6about it.
But Fox was not alone: with 80% of our leading party’s MP’s being Conservative Friends Of Israel’s (CFI) members, we have good reason to believe that treachery is now institutional amongst UK elected politicians.
As we brace ourselves while learning from the Israeli press about the IAF’s final preparations ahead for an attack on Iran’s nuclear plants, I would like to share with you a short passage from The Wandering Who.
In the following extract, I explore the exact genocidal scenario that Israeli pilots are now training to accomplish, in these very days. As much as it is clear that our treacherous elected puppets will fail to restrain Israel, it is equally and tragically obvious that Israel lacks the means to restrain its own madness.
“…I will try to elucidate this idea through a simple and hypothetical yet horrifying war scenario. We, for instance, can envisage a horrific situation in which an Israeli so-called ‘pre-emptive’ attack on Iran escalates into a disastrous nuclear war, in which tens of millions of people perish. I guess that amongst the survivors of such a nightmare scenario, some may be bold enough to argue that ‘Hitler might had been right after all.’
The above is obviously a fictional scenario, and by no means a wishful one, yet such a vision of a ‘possible’ horrific development should restrain Israeli or Zionist aggression towards Iran. As we know, Israeli officials threaten to flatten Iran rather too often. In practice, pre-TSD Israelis make this devastating scenario into a possible reality.
Seemingly, Israelis and Zionist politicians fail to see their own actions in the light of history. They fail to look at their actions in terms of their consequences. From an ethical perspective, the above ‘imaginary’ scenario is there to prevent Israel from attacking Iran. Yet, as we all know, Israel and its lobbies are desperate to dismantle the so-called ‘Iranian threat’. My explanation is simple. The Jewish state and the Jewish discourse in general are completely foreign to the notion of temporality. Israel is blinded to the consequences of its actions, it only thinks of its actions in terms of short-term pragmatism. Instead of temporality, Israel thinks in terms of an extended present.” (The Wandering Whopg. 179)
The Jewish State and its lobbies are the greatest threat to world peace. If we want to save ourselves, there is no other way of doing so than looking closely into Jewish, Israeli and Zionist culture, identity and ideology. There is no other way of doing so than scrutinising Israel’s unique and relentless attitude towards lobbying.
The issues we are dealing with here are not solely political they are actually deeply philosophical, psychological and sociological – and it is also about life and death.
Despite its evidently make-believe facade, the cooked-up story of the Saudi envoy assassination plot does not seem to be something which can be easily banished from the minds of the American powers that be.
The heat over Iran in the US government is growing rapidly. Some Republican congressmen have expressed their interest in waging an all-out war against Iran, a threat they keep refreshing every time they have an excuse. They have clearly stated that Washington should not dismiss the idea of resorting to military force against Iran, an idea which is being strengthened in Congress.
“I don’t think you should take it off the table,” Michigan Representative Mike Rogers, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, has said.
It is quite natural that he was vehemently supported by the former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Senator John McCain, who have always maintained an antagonistic approach towards Iran.
Hawkish Gingrich said on CNN, “Our goal should be the replacement of the Iranian dictatorship, and we have done nothing of consequence to systematically undermine the regime.”
The US government keeps preaching at others and talking of dismantling this or that regime which they term as ‘dictatorial’ or ‘sponsor of terrorism’. Now that the lot has fallen to the US government itself, they are at a loss and appear despondently desperate. The implosive voice that is eroding the American system from within cannot be easily smothered or contained.
Therefore, the US has to find a way to divert international attention from what is going on in the country and zoom in onIran. This can be one simple reason but it is very plausible. However, a bigger scenario is at work in collaboration with the Mossad and other intelligence services.
Soon, Washington’s political equation was abruptly disturbed when a top ISI official revealed that the man involved in the alleged assassination plot of the Saudi envoy Adel al-Jubeir had received forged documents from Mossad.
“The accused man [Mansour Arbabsiar] received fake ID documents from Mossad three months ago,” the Pakistani Urdu-language Ummat Daily quoted the Inter-Services Intelligence officer as saying on condition of anonymity.
According to the Pakistani intelligence expert, the man in question was slated to carry out an operation code named Foss Fling for the notorious Israeli intelligence agency.
In parallel with this appalling revelation, The Independent ran a story about Adam Werritty, an unofficial “chief of staff” to British Defense Minister Liam Fox, his best man and former flat mate who accompanied him on a number of official visits and virtually made all his decisions and even held top level meetings. Things went wrong though when it became manifest that he had in February arranged a meeting between Fox and senior Mossad operatives at a security conference taking place in Herzliya, near Tel Aviv, where they discussed effective plans to overthrow the ‘Iranian regime’. Werritty was said to have regularly met Iranian anti-government groups, Israeli operatives and right-wing US groups with an overwhelming interest in destabilizing President Ahmadinejad and overthrowing the Islamic government.
According to the report, Werritty had travelled to Iran on several occasions and held secret meetings with opposition groups with the express intention of expediting the fall of the Islamic government inIran. Interestingly, MI6 was informed of his connections and debriefed him after he returned from overseas trips.
Werritty was financially backed by murky sources such as Bicom, an Israeli advocacy organization based in theUK. Bicom which stands for Britain Israel Communications Research Center is in fact a front organization based inLondontasked with security and intelligence activities as well as promotion of Zionism. Apart from garnering support for the Zionist regime among Britons, the office also serves as a bridge between Mossad and MI6. The CEO of the office, Lorna Fitzsimons, a former MP, is noted for her constant support for the Zionists. She used to be a member of the campaign group, Labor Friends of Israel (LFI). It is basically a lobby group promoting Zionism within the British Labor Party in particular and in Britain, in general. And Werritty is an influential member of the organization and a highly regarded agent for Mossad.
These postulations aside, there has recently emerged an interesting piece of information about a second person held on suspicion of involvement in the alleged plot. The information reveals a man named Gholam Hussein Shakouri who is closely connected with the fabricated prime suspect. Shakouri, who is a cousin of Mansour Arbabsiar, is reportedly a member of the MKO, a notorious anti-Iranian terrorist organization now based at the Ashraf camp in Iraq and strongly supported by the US government although the organization has been widely designated as a terrorist organization. The MKO man has travelled to a number of countries with many fake IDs, including forged Iranian passports. He was last seen in Washington and at Camp Ashraf, where MKO members are based. One of the passports Shakouri used was issued on November 30, 2006 in Washington numbered K10295631. The terrorist organization MKO has more than 3,000 members at the camp. Members of the group have been involved in several assassination and sabotage activities in Iran.
The loosely-structured assassination plot is part of an extensive espionage and sabotage network supported and co-funded by the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad and CIA.
The marriage of the pernicious intelligence agencies e.g. Mossad, CIA and MI6 in trying to sabotage and cripple the Islamic government indicates a diligently wrought out plan over many years and one which has been heavily funded.
In the final analysis, what seemed at first to be a simplistic effort by the US to corner Iran into political isolation has begun to branch out into ramifications of Kafkaesque proportions.
In a ‘united against Iran campaign,’ the US government has accused Tehran of orchestrating an assassination plot against the Saudi envoy in Washington, a move which is to be seen as part of a US stratagem to carry on with its plan of demonizing and isolating the Islamic Republic of Iran.
US Vice President Joe Biden said on “The Early Show” on Wednesday that “It’s critically important that we unite the world in the isolation of and dealing with the Iranians. That’s the surest way to be able to get results.”
Obviously, the US officials will use the fabricated occasion to press for new international sanctions as they say that Iranian agents have sought to hire a purported member of a Mexican drug cartel to assassinate the Saudi envoy on American soil.
Regardless of the impertinence and hollowness of the claim, one should not disregard the influence of the powerful Zionist lobby in the new mudslinging plan which is, as Iran’s Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani puts it, a ‘tactless and childish game.”
To add more fuel to Iranophobia, US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called on other countries to work together against what is becoming a clearer and clearer threat” from Iran and said, “This really, in the minds of many diplomats and government officials, crosses a line that Iran needs to be held to account for.”
Washington, once again, went on a labeling spree and called Iran “the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.”
There is well-grounded speculation that the new move is meant to stir up dissension in the region so that the US may bolster its waning influence among the Middle Eastern countries as Iran wields a great amount of political muscle in the region. In other words, the US will then be in a position to fish in troubled waters.
In concerted efforts with Israel, Washington has a long history of covert operations in Iran including cyber-terrorism, commercial sabotage and targeted assassinations. A notable instance of such operations is a computer worm known as Stuxnet which has hit Iranian nuclear facilities, categorically a deliberate attempt by the US government to destroy what Iranian scientists have reaped during years. The worm was reportedly tested in Israel at the notorious nuclear arsenal Dimona in a joint Israeli-American effort (The New York Times January 15, 2011). Ironically, Dimona which has been used as a testing ground for the worm, houses over 300 nuclear warheads, and was kept hidden for years until Mordechai Vanunu, a former technician at Dimona, fled to Britain in 1986 and revealed the Israeli nuclear program as well as a top-secret underground facility directly below the installation. Reports say that Israel has at its disposal material for roughly 20 hydrogen bombs and 200 fission bombs. Needless to say, Israel is not a global security threat despite its nuclear warheads and irresponsible behavior towards the Palestinians as it is a fawning ally of the USA.
Apart from sabotaging the nuclear program in Iran, Washington has shamelessly engaged in a series of assassinations against Iranian nuclear scientists. In July 2011, a university student named Daryoush Rezaei, 35, was shot down while his wife sustained serious injuries and was rushed to hospital. In 2010, Massoud Ali Mohammadi, a nuclear scientist, was killed by a remote-controlled bomb in Tehran. On November 29, 2010, two other scientists were targeted by bombs that hit their cars in the capital. The assailants, who were on motorcycles, had stuck magnetic bombs to the victims’ cars. Professor Majid Shahriari was killed on the spot, but Dr. Fereydoun Abbasi and his wife sustained minor injuries and were taken to a hospital. A report carried by The Jerusalem Post citing French Weekly Le Canard enchaine revealed that Mossad had conducted the assassinations “with the help of the CIA and MI6.”
According to intelligence sources, the assassinations were part of Joint US-Israeli plots meant to sabotage Iran’s nuclear program. Also, an article published in the Portuguese-language Weekly, The Expresso revealed that high-ranking Mossad officials gathered at the spy agency’s headquarters in northern Tel Aviv, concluding that the killing of Shahriari would be Mossad’s last covert operation under its current director, Meir Dagan. However, the two spy agencies refused to assume any responsibility for the attacks whatsoever.
In the Iowa Republican Presidential Debate in August 2011, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich spurted out his brazen sloganeering against the Islamic republic and when asked about the situation in Libya, he unconsciously gave rein to his anger and started ranting about Iran, saying the nation had “gone on the offensive” against the USA and needed to be confronted. Soon other hawks joined in with former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty speaking venomously in favor of attacking Iran and boldly lauding the “good works” of the US government in assassinating Iranian scientists and the “good work” of creating the Stuxnet computer virus. This was how he let the cat out of the bag, making it clear that the USA was behind all those atrocities.
Some pundits believe that the US move will put Iran in the forefront of global hatred. This will never happen as the US and its lapdog Israel have already played similar games about Iran over and over again.
What the US government has done to the Iranian nation is not easy to forget and the support it keeps voicing for Israel is not difficult to digest.
Isn’t it strange that Iran, which has long been a victim of US-sponsored terrorism and assassinations, should have become a target of threadbare allegations?
By now, you are probably worn out from all the speculation about the actual events in Pakistan that claim the death of the public enemy No 1. No photos of a dead Osama bin Laden, burial at sea, instant DNA results and changing versions with every new news report gets old quickly. The claim that a treasure chest of intelligence was secured during the raid, conflicts with killing the main man who knows where all the buried are buried. Capturing him alive for interrogation would maximize the intelligence quest, if that were the real goal.
If any significance should be assigned to this account, now is the time to re-evaluate the entire nature of the War on Terror that has destroyed America more in the last ten years than any attack on home soil.
Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden and al-Qaeda has always been a straw man villain that is necessary to perpetuate a never-ending threat to the eternal evil empire. Wag the dog is a standard policy to keep the drollery narrative going in order to maintain the dullard public in their drunken stupor of jingoism. The tale might seem amusing if the stark consequences of national decay and carnage were not real. The fantasy indoctrination that purports to be professional news journalism defies logic and common sense. Not surprising, the asinine flag wavers chant USA, USA, USA when the reality actually resembles an echo of Sieg Heil Amerika. The cry for justice always seems to falter when it comes to the underlying players in the terrorist war against the American people. Comments and conclusions from the site Universe CIA2 are germane.
“USA has become a Banana Republic since 2000, on par with the old Soviet Politburo, North Korea, Eric Honecker’s East Germany, Pravda, Tishreen, the 3rd Reich and Zimbabwe, to name a few. The crumbling Empire is too desperate and pulling all the Stops from its dirty bag of Tricks, and much more is in the Pipeline. The worst part is that ALL the Western world, the MSM, the UKUSA alliance of evils, the UN, NATO, EU, the Arab stooges & puppets, etc. are singing the same ZIOCON tunes, babbling, blathering, and regurgitating the same fallacies about 9/11, Al-CIAda and the bogus war on “terror”.
The pattern of false flags are rooted firmly in recent history and shared by delusory regimes.

Prepare for the next designed deceptive event that pushes the ignorant into demanding an even greater stratum of tyranny. Homeland security never had it so good, when it plans the burning of the last semblance of representative constitutional government, as it substitutes an unmitigated totalitarian collectivist dictatorship over our beleaguered nation.
In The Real Threat to National Security, the dilemma of what to believe for a sincere American is presented.
“Is the threat from foreign terrorists the undertaking of homeland insecurity? The preoccupation since 911 with a self-serving “War of Terror” has been masked under the appearance of national security. Tracking down targeted Jihad terrorists and waging regional search and destroy missions has become the growth industry of the new millennium. The rationale and justification for such a protracted conflict rests upon a cowardly attack on American soil. If you listen to the official version of events anyone who questions the validity of blaming Islamic Fascists must be unpatriotic.”
Written just after 911, The Empire Strikes Back, Again cites the BBC reporting, Bin Laden’s warning, ”neither the United States nor he who lives in the United States will enjoy security before we can see it as a reality in Palestine and before all the infidel armies leave the land of Mohammed”.
1) For over seven years the United States has been occupying the lands of Islam in the holiest of places, the Arabian Peninsula, plundering its riches, dictating to its rulers, humiliating its people, terrorizing its neighbors, and turning its bases in the Peninsula into a spearhead through which to fight the neighboring Muslim peoples. If some people have in the past argued about the fact of the occupation, all the people of the Peninsula have now acknowledged it. The best proof of this is the Americans’ continuing aggression against the Iraqi people using the Peninsula as a staging post, even though all its rulers are against their territories being used to that end, but they are helpless.
2) Despite the great devastation inflicted on the Iraqi people by the crusader-Zionist alliance, and despite the huge number of those killed, which has exceeded 1 million… despite all this, the Americans are once against trying to repeat the horrific massacres, as though they are not content with the protracted blockade imposed after the ferocious war or the fragmentation and devastation. So here they come to annihilate what is left of this people and to humiliate their Muslim neighbors.
3) If the Americans’ aims behind these wars are religious and economic, the aim is also to serve the Jews’ petty state and divert attention from its occupation of Jerusalem and murder of Muslims there. The best proof of this is their eagerness to destroy Iraq, the strongest neighboring Arab state, and their endeavor to fragment all the states of the region such as Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Sudan into paper statelets and through their disunion and weakness to guarantee Israel’s survival and the continuation of the brutal crusade occupation of the Peninsula.
Osama Bin Laden was a CIA creation who came to oppose the American imperium. If he did not exist, a substitute creation would be necessary. The Marxists that compose the Obama administration have crossed a line of no return. The path they chartered now demands a far more dire level of apprehension for increasingly doubtful, yet naive citizens to swallow and accept. Just how destructive will the next criminal psyops staged event be? The war room of authoritarians, models their Stalinist hero’s practices of human butchery. They admire their British communist “Cambridge Five” cousins who betrayed their own nation for the panacea of a global paradise of central control.
Bin Laden’s fatwa still rings true to Americans who despise the empire and love the principles of a lawful Republic limited in size, scope and reach.
The videos Guide for DUMMIES – CIA & Their Fake Osama Videos and Osama bin Laden is dead!He was killed by Omar Sheikh! Benazir Bhutto exposes the truth, illustrates that a bogyman can be even more useful, dead.
The Man Who Never Was tricked the Nazis in Operation Mincemeat. Charles Cholmondeley of MI5 and the British naval intelligence officer Ewen Montagu ran the successful deception scheme. The human cadaver of a fictitious “Major William Martin, R.M.” fooled Hitler. The ambitious CIA set their sights higher for duping the entire country with their bin Laden actors. The Agency’s propaganda, developed since 911, would make Joseph Goebbels proud.
Never noted for a sophisticated perspective of their own history, especially when it comes to the clandestine deeds of their own government, most folks want to trust their leaders. Remember the Maine and the Gulf of Tonkin incident both were the impetus for tragic and unnecessary wars. The sedated public, eager to rally round the flag, is less inclined to recognize the bold face lies told to them from every internationalist administration that occupied the White House.
Justification to continue an unwarranted war on terror is so absurd on its face. Only a mercenary or a desperate idealist, who refuses to accept the overwhelming evidence, that a global interventionistforeign policy is the basic cause of our self-created insecurity. The internal ruling establishment promotes and survives on the terror of their making, against the citizens of this once great nation.
You do not have to like or agree with the viewpoints and objectives that bin Laden professed. However, you had better recognize that only a return to an America First foreign policy could serve the true security needs of our people.
What will you do when the next internal false flag government act of domestic violence comes to your country? Will you bow down to the thugs that wheel unlawful authority, or will you revolt. If you really want justice for the 911 murders, you must face reality and look within your own government for the true terrorists.
The accusation of anti-Semitism has long passed its sell-by date: Anthony Lawson…
Without any redundant exaggeration, Anthony Lawson is an inimitable, conscientious and unique man. What he does can be described as professional and committed video-journalism. Lawson is a retired international-prize-winning commercials director, cameraman, ad agency creative director and voice over. He calls himself as a “stickler for accuracy” and his record demonstrates the rightfulness of this description. His articles and videos on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, 9/11 attacks and U.S. foreign policy have appeared on a number of media outlets and news websites including Sabbah Report, Veterans Today, Salem News, Intifada Palestine, Media With Conscience, Rense.com and Ramllah Online.
“Suppressing free and open discussion on any subject is as bad as telling lies, and knowingly suppressing the truth is the biggest lie of all, because it is based, not on a mistake or a genuine error, but on a deliberate intention to deceive,” writes Anthony Lawson in one of his articles.
YouTube has recently removed two of Mr. Lawson’s most impressive video files about Holocaust and 9/11 attacks under the pretext that these video files have violated the copyright law; however, even a seven-year-old child can effortlessly recognize that the sensitive truths which Anthony Lawson has touched upon in his videos caused their removal from the pro-Zionist website.
What follows is the complete text of my in-depth interview with Anthony Lawson in which we discussed a variety of issues including the concealed realities of 9/11, the Zionist influence over the U.S. administration and the freedom of mass media in the West.
Kourosh Ziabari: in one of your articles, you have written that “the NTSB has confirmed that-apparently for the first time from its inception, in 1967, since when it has investigated more than 124,000 other aviation accidents-it took no part in investigating any of the air crashes which occurred on September 11, 2001.” Do you mean that the National Transportation Safety Board refused to investigate the 9/11 air crashes? Was it ordered by a superior authority to do so? What does the fact that NTSB didn’t investigate the 9/11 air crashes imply? You have mentioned that FBI similarly refused to release any information about any debris recovered from the crash sites under the Freedom of Information Act. Do you want to imply that the U.S. administrative organizations such as FBI and NTSB have been complicit in the 9/11 attacks?
Anthony Lawson: That is correct. The NTSB did not take part in the painstaking procedure of examining what was left of the four aircraft to determine that they were indeed the same aircraft which were allegedly hijacked that morning. Two of the allegedly hijacked aircraft: American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 were claimed, by the Bush administration, to have been the planes which impacted the North Tower and South Tower, respectively, each flown by Arabs who, it later transpired, had never flown a wide-bodied commercial jet before. Aircraft debris, including parts of an undercarriage and fuselage of the North Tower plane were certainly photographed, and the still-smoking core of what must have been the right engine of the South Tower plane can be seen, in several videos, arcing its way down towards Murray and Church streets, were it was videoed and photographed. Later, an identifiable photograph of this same engine core was released, by a former FEMA official photographer, as it was about to be buried in a landfill on Staten Island. This was an important section of a murder weapon, as were the aircraft parts found in or near the North Tower; the debris from the alleged crash site of United Flight 93 and that of American Airlines 77 which allegedly crashed into the Pentagon.
As to the second part of the question, I very much doubt that the NTSB would have been in a position to refuse to investigate the crashes. I should say that were dissuaded from doing so. The FBI, backed up by the Justice Department has refused to release any details about the aircraft parts or the serial numbers of the Black Boxes that may or may not have been found at the crash sites, although the contents of one of them—the Cockpit Voice Recorder from alleged United 93—formed the basis of several documentaries and an Academy-Award-winning movie, yet the transcript of the recording did not carry the serial number of the device on which it was, allegedly, recorded.
I try not to imply things that I have no proof about, because I think that it is up to the reader or viewer to make up their own mind about such things, but I will state, categorically, that the FBI must have been involved in the subsequent cover-up of important information about 9/11, and it is disappointing, but somewhat understandable, considering the power that the perpetrators must possess, that someone from the NTSB has not come forward with the reasons why these plane crashes, out of so many thousands, were not investigated by a government agency with such an outstanding success record.

KZ: In your articles, you have alluded to the fact that the U.S. mainstream media evaded and downplayed the truth about 9/11 and tried to cover up the reality behind it. Meanwhile, they laid the groundwork for the military expedition of the United States and its cronies to two independent, sovereign states. Why do the mainstream media in the United States, which you may admit that are mostly run by well-off Zionists, refused to investigate and analyse the 9/11 attacks objectively and impartially? Does it indicate that the U.S. media, contrary to the accepted wisdom of the public opinion, are not absolutely free to publish whatever they want?
AL: It is no secret that today’s mainstream media and the major Hollywood production companies are owned or controlled by Jews, many of them Zionists, and that many if not most are almost certainly biased towards the well-being of the Jewish state of Israel. Of course there will be loud cries of “foul”, if one relates these factors to the obvious areas which should have been reported or looked into by the mainstream media, but were not. There are so many areas of obvious discrepancy, relating to the ongoing coverage of 9/11, two prime examples being the non-identification of the murder weapons, as explained above, and the fact that the strange collapse of WTC 7 was glossed over by the media and not even mentioned in the Commission’s report. This brought to light the virtual disappearance of what used to be called investigative journalism, while calls from independent researchers and public-opinion polls for a more thorough investigation of the obvious anomalies in the 9/11 Commission’s report have fallen on stony ground, because the mainstream media, quite clearly, will the not address these issues with any seriousness.
Once again, I can’t really give you a clear answer to the last part of question two, because I have no evidence that there is outside pressure on the media, but I’m inclined to think that, given AIPAC’s power and who owns the media, very little pressure would be required to prevent reports which may be detrimental to Israel from surfacing in the press or on T.V.
KZ: on several occasions, you criticized the U.S. Congress for its overabundant loyalty and commitment to the Apartheid Regime of Israel. You have stated that “a majority of the curren membership of the United States congress are, in fact, traitors to their own nation, because they have indicated, time and time again, a desire to put the protection of the Apartheid State of Israel ahead of considerations for the safety and security of the realm to which they have been pledged their allegiance: The United States of America.” Is there any certain mechanism within the political structure of the United States which promotes pro-Israel politicians to Congress, Senate and other sensitive governmental positions? In an exclusive interview with me, the American political scientist Prof. Naseer Aruri expressed an interesting statement. He said that no politician with an anti-Zionist mindset could ever dream of living in the White House. Do you agree? Why is it so?
AL: I totally agree with Professor Aruri. I cannot see anyone being voted in as Dog Catcher, if that is an elective position in any of the United States, were they are not prepared to show that they support Israel, 100%. The way that so many members of the House and Senate have signed letters which actually pledge their allegiance to Israel—even in the face of conflicting policies being stated by their own president—is evidence of their treason. Sure, some people will argue about the exact conditions which must apply for such pledges to amount to treason, but the U.S. is still engaged in two wars, if you count the war on terror, and the Libyan conflict could easily escalate into another war, whether declared or not, and Israel will be looking to further its own best interests in the region, which will almost certainly not coincide with America’s best interests—by which I mean the best interests of American citizens, not their administrators—and the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty, in 1967, that killed 34 American servicemen, should be warning enough that Israel is not to be trusted, when it feels threatened by anyone. So what would these pledges of allegiance or solidarity towards Israel mean, if a similar incident took place?
KZ: Putting aside its militaristic and imperialistic face, United States is deemed by many nations of the world as a superpower which can benefit them in terms of economy and diplomacy. The United States maintains strong relations with so many countries in the world. Canada, China, Mexico, Japan and Germany are the top 5 trade partners of the United States. However, among the countries with which the U.S. maintains strong diplomatic, economic and cultural relations, Israel occupies a special berth. The United States has regularly vetoed any UNSC resolution critical of Israel, justified Israel’s war crimes and crimes against humanity, helped Israel extend its umbrella of occupation over the Palestinian nation and prevented the international community from investigating Israel’s illegal nuclear program. What has created such a strong and unbreakable linkage between Tel Aviv and Washington? What causes the United States to present itself as the unconditional supporter and patron of the Israeli regime?
Anthony: As I have indicated in my video, Friends of Israel — Enemies Inside the Gates, there seem to be two basic reasons for the strong and unbreakable linkage between Tel Aviv and Washington: arcane beliefs and money. If a person is a Zionist, and believes that Israel really was promised to the Jews, in perpetuity, by their God, several thousand years ago, whether they are Jews or Zionists Christians, that would be reason enough to support Israel, come Hell or high water. But, I suspect the stronger reason is more likely to be money and power, which are pretty much the same thing or, at least, interchangeable. Referring back to Professor Aruri’s statement, I would broaden it to: “No politician with an anti-Zionist mindset could ever dream of living in the White House or of sitting in the House of Representatives or the Senate for any significant length of time.” The reason being that they could never buck the big bucks that AIPAC would put up to defeat them at the next election. And the magic of it all is that it doesn’t cost Israel a shekel, because the U.S. pays Israel $3.1 billion plus in aid, every year, so it can afford to back candidates from both parties. As long as they pledge to keep that “aid” money rolling towards Tel Aviv, it can be rolled right back into their own campaign funds at election time. This is a mind-boggling feed-back system that would have had the Founding Fathers foaming at their mouths, had they considered that such a thing might be a possibility. Democracy didn’t even exist in Ancient Greece, which was a slave state, and it certainly doesn’t exist in the United States, although so many U.S. presidents claim that it is an exportable commodity, if only at the point of an M16 carbine I guess the short answer is: Tel Aviv controls the U.S., not Washington.
KZ: The critics of Israeli regime are always conveniently vilified as anti-Semitist and those who question the veracity of Holocaust accounts are offhandedly called neo-Nazis. Whoever dares criticize Israel for its crimes against humanity and brutal repression of the Palestinian nation is disrespectfully dismissed by the mainstream media. What has given the Israeli regime and the Zionist lobby around the world such an immense and enormous power to suffocate all of the critics and opponents by introducing them as the enemies of Judaism?
AL: Money and dedication to a cause is what enables the perpetuation of these absurd and unwarranted insults. If something is repeated often enough, in the media, it is believed by those who lack the power to think for themselves. And it is the Zionist-owned media that can afford to repeat them, over and over. With regard to people who are unable to think for themselves, unfortunately, I think early religious teachings must take some of the blame for the underdevelopment of young minds, in the area of free thinking, because being encouraged to blindly believe in something that cannot be seen, heard or touched must affect the ability or willingness of a young person to question other things about their lives and relationships with others. Which means that their minds are wide open to other suggestions which may appear quite reasonable, but which are not, if they only gave them some thought. Whatever the cause of this lack of awareness in so many people, most people who are able to think for themselves must realise that the accusation of anti-Semitism has long passed its sell-by date, if it ever had a legitimate one. In fact it is a total misnomer, it doesn’t mean anti-Jewish, because the word Semitic refers to a group of languages, not a belief system. I counter this with my own word combination: Anti-NastyPeopleism. This is quite an okay emotion to have, and if one of those nasty people happens to be a Jew or a Zionist, that is not my problem it is theirs.
KZ: Two of your impressive video files namely “Holocaust, Hate Speech & Were the Germans so Stupid?” and No-Fly Zone over Gaza were flagrantly removed by the YouTube in clear violation of the freedom of speech and democracy. By disabling the truth-seeking internet users to watch your insightful videos, YouTube demonstrated that it can be hardly trusted as a reliable and truthful source of information. Please explain for me and my readers about the contents of your video files and let us know about your idea regarding their removal from YouTube. Do you agree with the belief that the Western world is not that beacon of freedom and cradle of liberty which its statesmen claim?
AL: An operation like YouTube is wide open to abuse from people who have no regard for freedom of speech and expression. Ever since the first video you mention was taken down, because of a false copyright-infringement claim, which was not looked into by the YouTube “Team”—even when I pointed out that the claimant had given an incorrect telephone number and the material it was claimed I was infringing is not even available on the Internet—I’ve given up trying to fight them, because that is what such people want me to do: waste my energy fighting a corporation which doesn’t care a damn about anyone or anything, except making money. It is a world sickness: never mind the quality of our operation, feel the money it makes. These days, I never use the word “believe” in relation to my thoughts, because it has the wrong connotation. People believe things that, quite obviously, may not have any basis in fact, so I prefer the word “think”. So the answer is that I don’t think that the Western world is a beacon of freedom or cradle of liberty. Most of its elements are as corrupt and as rotten to the core as any of the regimes which have already fallen or which are teetering, in the Arab world, right now.
Here’s a question for you, rhetorical I guess: Have you ever seen anything as gross as the royal wedding and the coverage given to it by the media? How much did all that cost to prop up the idea that monarchy still has something to offer in this day and age? The world didn’t stop when Israel invaded Gaza, but it stopped, as far as the BBC and CNN were concerned, when a couple of young people of no particular noteworthiness got married I cannot look at any of those pictures or listen to the inane commentaries without thinking of the massive degradation of decency that went into the planning of that appalling display of wealth, or the mental illness that makes certain people think that the frock worn by so-and-so has any meaning at all, in the wider picture of human decency and compassion for the suffering of others. It was a disgrace.
KZ: According to the Article 19 of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights which was highlighted in your video, everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression and there should be no exception to this rule. However, those who benefit from aggrandizing the story of Holocaust and exaggerating its extent are at odds with this inalienable freedom. Why has the Holocaust become a forbidden zone which nobody can enter? What’s your personal viewpoint regarding the accounts which have been given about Holocaust? Did the Nazi Germany under the leadership of Adolf Hitler exterminate 6 million Jews is gassing chambers?
AL: It would be hard to answer in a single paragraph what I took a 30 minute video to examine. During WW II, atrocities of monumental proportions were committed by both sides. The thousand-bomber raids launched on the civilian population of Germany and the droppings of two atomic bombs on civilians in Japan are prime examples. There is no doubt in my mind that English and American politicians and military staff sat and cold-bloodedly planned those atrocities. They would have been classed as war criminals had Germany won the war. On the other hand, it seems that there is no solid evidence that Germany put in train a plan to systematically murder Jews using gas chambers. I have no doubt that some Germans were as cruel as some of those bombing-raid planners, and that a lot of unnecessary deaths resulted from that cruel streak, which seems to show itself in so many humans, but I do not think that the facts support the planned systematic-extermination scenario that the ever-growing number of Holocaust museums claim was perpetrated by the Germans. And I would add that the more I hear and see of the attempts to gag open discussion on this uniquely banned historical subject, the more I am convinced that some things are being covered up and others invented in order to perpetuate some of the Holocaust stories that would not stand up to a thorough and impartial examination.
KZ: Let’s take a glance at the developments taking place in the Middle East region. Almost all of the nations in the Persian Gulf region which are experiencing revolutions or semi-revolutions, from Egypt and Tunisia to Libya, Bahrain, Yemen and Saudi Arabia, have been the staunch allies of Washington. One feature is common between all of these countries and that is their repressiveness and black human rights record. Why does the United States support and uphold brutal regimes such as Bahrain, Libya and Yemen who relentlessly massacre their own people and refuse to be held accountable before the international community?
AL: I don’t claim to have anything more than a distant bystander’s knowledge of these issues, so all I can do is put two and two together from observing the diplomatic Merry-Go-Round between the various countries you mention, over the last few years. Clearly, the United States has no interest in these countries becoming democracies, or in the wellbeing of their citizens; the arming of Saudi Arabia demonstrating its blatant show of support for one of the most elitist regimes in the world. Bearing in mind the control exercised by Zionists in the U.S., I think it is almost a certainty that each potential flash-point is looked at, not from America’s point-of-view, but from Israel’s. The change of regime in Egypt, which has a common border and a long-standing peace pact with Israel, is going to be one of the most telling areas to watch, in view of the Egyptian people’s stated concerns about Gaza and the Palestinians. These recent uprisings and demonstrations of discontent must have sent tsunami-sized shock waves through whatever diplomatic damage-control systems the Washington-Tel Aviv axis had in place, so it would be a brave or foolhardy observer who would try to guess what is likely to happen, except to say that whatever does happen it is unlikely to be very pretty to watch on our TV screens or read about on the Internet.
KZ: United States and its European allies have long accused Iran of pursuing a military nuclear program. They have lethally pressured Iran to give up its nuclear program and imposed hard-hitting sanctions against the country which have paralyzed the daily life of people here. At the same time and while almost everybody knows that Israel possesses up to 200 nuclear warheads, nobody dares question Israel on its nuclear program. How should one come to terms with this exercise of double standards?
AL: I have tried to address this issue in several of my videos, the most pertinent being:
Iran and the International Bureau of Double Standards http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czDi0Koct94&feature=email
Double Vendetta — The Insanity of the Iran Confrontation
The huge barrier to any common-sense approach to this problem is Zionist-controlled America’s and Britain’s unforgiving attitude, and, perhaps, even suppressed guilt for their imposition of the Shah on a nation struggling to achieve a working form of democracy, in 1953, while their most valuable natural resource was being plundered by foreign oil companies, and I can do no better in answering your question, than to copy some excerpts from the script of this video:
“Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, MI6 assisted [the CIA] in the coup to protect the interests of the Anglo Iranian Oil Company—now the newly-infamous British Petroleum. Under a disgracefully unbalanced agreement, the shareholders received 58% of the profits; the British collected 30%, in taxes, while Iran received a measly 12%. So the motive for overthrowing Dr. Mossadegh and Iran‘s constitutionally-elected government was pure greed….”
” Perhaps to the surprise only of the tunnel-visioned British and American administrations, the Iranians decided, in 1979, that they’d had enough of the Shah and his vicious National Intelligence and Security Organization — SAVAK….”
“There followed the United States Embassy hostage crisis, destined to forever colour U.S./ Iranian relations. The Iranian regime was demanding the return of the recently-deposed Shah, to face trial, but he was allowed into the United States for medical treatment, and it was feared that this could mean that a CIA plot was being hatched to reinstate him. Approximately 90 people were taken hostage and 52 remained in captivity until the end of the crisis, four hundred and forty-four days later….”
“This incident still reverberates, within the collective American administrative psyche, as an insult. An insult yet to be expunged. Leaving what can be accurately described as: A vendetta against any Iranian regime which fails to do what it is told to do, by America.”
Thank you for asking me to take part in your interesting series of interviews; it has been a challenge, but also a great pleasure to share my thoughts with you.
Fabricating a Pretext for a US-NATO “Humanitarian Intervention”
By Michel Chossudovsky…
There is evidence of gross media manipulation and falsification from the outset of the protest movement in southern Syria on March 17th.
The Western media has presented the events in Syria as part of the broader Arab pro-democracy protest movement, spreading spontaneously from Tunisia, to Egypt, and from Libya to Syria.
Media coverage has focussed on the Syrian police and armed forces, which are accused of indiscriminately shooting and killing unarmed “pro-democracy” demonstrators. While these police shootings did indeed occur, what the media failed to mention is that among the demonstrators there were armed gunmen as well as snipers who were shooting at both the security forces and the protesters.
The death figures presented in the reports are often unsubstantiated. Many of the reports are “according to witnesses”. The images and video footages aired on Al Jazeera and CNN do not always correspond to the events which are being covered by the news reports.
There is certainly cause for social unrest and mass protest in Syria: unemployment has increased in recent year, social conditions have deteriorated, particularly since the adoption in 2006 of sweeping economic reforms under IMF guidance. The IMF’s “economic medicine” includes austerity measures, a freeze on wages, the deregulation of the financial system, trade reform and privatization. (See IMF Syrian Arab Republic — IMF Article IV Consultation Mission’s Concluding Statement, http://www.imf.org/external/np/ms/2006/051406.htm, 2006)
With a government dominated by the minority Alawite (an offshoot of Shia Islam), Syria is no “model society” with regard to civil rights and freedom of expression. It nonetheless constitutes the only (remaining) independent secular state in the Arab world. Its populist, anti-Imperialist and secular base is inherited from the dominant Baath party, which integrates Muslims, Christians and Druze.
Moreover, in contrast to Egypt and Tunisia, in Syria there is considerable popular support for President Bashar Al Assad. The large rally in Damascus on March 29, “with tens of thousands of supporters” (Reuters) of President Al Assad is barely mentioned. Yet in an unusual twist, the images and video footage of several pro-government events were used by the Western media to convince international public opinion that the President was being confronted by mass anti-government rallies.

The “Epicenter” of the Protest Movement. Daraa: A Small Border Town in southern Syria
What is the nature of the protest movement? From what sectors of Syrian society does it emanate? What triggered the violence?
What is the cause of the deaths?
The existence of an organized insurrection composed of armed gangs involved in acts of killing and arson has been dismissed by the Western media, despite evidence to the contrary.
The demonstrations did not start in Damascus, the nation’s capital. At the outset, the protests were not integrated by a mass movement of citizens in Syria’s capital.
The demonstrations started in Daraa, a small border town of 75,000 inhabitants, on the Syrian Jordanian border, rather than in Damascus or Aleppo, where the mainstay of organized political opposition and social movements are located. (Daraa is a small border town comparable e.g. to Plattsburgh, NY on the US-Canadian border).
The Associated Press report (quoting unnamed “witnesses” and “activists”) describes the early protests in Daraa as follows:
The violence in Daraa, a city of about 300,000 near the border with Jordan, was fast becoming a major challenge for President Bashar Assad, …. Syrian police launched a relentless assault Wednesday on a neighborhood sheltering anti-government protesters [Daraa], fatally shooting at least 15 in an operation that began before dawn, witnesses said.
At least six were killed in the early morning attack on the al-Omari mosque in the southern agricultural city of Daraa, where protesters have taken to the streets in calls for reforms and political freedoms, witnesses said. An activist in contact with people in Daraa said police shot another three people protesting in its Roman-era city center after dusk. Six more bodies were found later in the day, the activist said.
As the casualties mounted, people from the nearby villages of Inkhil, Jasim, Khirbet Ghazaleh and al-Harrah tried to march on Daraa Wednesday night but security forces opened fire as they approached, the activist said. It was not immediately clear if there were more deaths or injuries. (AP, March 23, 2011, emphasis added)
The AP report inflates the numbers: Daraa is presented as a city of 300,000 when in fact its population is 75,000; “protesters gathered by the thousands”, “casualties mounted”.
The report is silent on the death of policemen which in the West invariably makes the front page of the tabloids.
The deaths of the policemen are important in assessing what actually happened. When there are police casualties, this means that there is an exchange of gunfire between opposing sides, between policemen and “demonstrators”.
Who are these “demonstrators” including roof top snipers who were targeting the police.
Israeli and Lebanese news reports (which acknowledge the police deaths) provide a clearer picture of what happened in Daraa on March 17-18. The Israel National News Report (which cannot be accused of being biased in favor of Damascus) reviews these same events as follows:
Seven police officers and at least four demonstrators in Syria have been killed in continuing violent clashes that erupted in the southern town of Daraa last Thursday.
…. On Friday police opened fire on armed protesters killing four and injuring as many as 100 others. According to one witness, who spoke to the press on condition of anonymity, “They used live ammunition immediately — no tear gas or anything else.”
…. In an uncharacteristic gesture intended to ease tensions the government offered to release the detained students, but seven police officers were killed, and the Baath Party Headquarters and courthouse were torched, in renewed violence on Sunday. (Gavriel Queenann, Syria: Seven Police Killed, Buildings Torched in Protests, Israel National News, Arutz Sheva, March 21, 2011, emphasis added)
The Lebanese news report, quoting various sources, also acknowledges the killings of seven policemen in Daraa: They were killed “during clashes between the security forces and protesters… They got killed trying to drive away protesters during demonstration in Dara’a”
The Lebanese Ya Libnan report quoting Al Jazeera also acknowledged that protesters had “burned the headquarters of the Baath Party and the court house in Dara’a” (emphasis added)
These news reports of the events in Daraa confirm the following:
1. This was not a “peaceful protest” as claimed by the Western media. Several of the “demonstrators” had fire arms and were using them against the police: “The police opened fire on armed protesters killing four”.
2. From the initial casualty figures (Israel News), there were more policemen than demonstrators who were killed: 7 policemen killed versus 4 demonstrators. This is significant because it suggests that the police force might have been initially outnumbered by a well organized armed gang. According to Syrian media sources, there were also snipers on rooftops which were shooting at both the police and the protesters.
What is clear from these initial reports is that many of the demonstrators were not demonstrators but terrorists involved in premeditated acts of killing and arson. The title of the Israeli news report summarizes what happened: Syria: Seven Police Killed, Buildings Torched in Protests.
The Daraa “protest movement” on March 18 had all the appearances of a staged event involving, in all likelihood, covert support to Islamic terrorists by Mossad and/or Western intelligence. Government sources point to the role of radical Salafist groups (supported by Israel)
Other reports have pointed to the role of Saudi Arabia in financing the protest movement.
What has unfolded in Daraa in the weeks following the initial violent clashes on 17-18 March, is the confrontation between the police and the armed forces on the one hand and armed units of terrorists and snipers on the other which have infiltrated the protest movement.
Reports suggest that these terrorists are integrated by Islamists. There is no concrete evidence as to which Islamic organizations are behind the terrorists and the government has not released corroborating information as to who these groups are.
Both the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood (whose leadership is in exile in the UK) and the banned Hizb ut-Tahrir (the Party of Liberation), among others have paid lip service to the protest movement. Hizb ut Tahir (led in the 1980s by Syrian born Omar Bakri Muhammad) tends to “dominate the British Islamist scene” according to Foreign Affairs. Hizb ut Tahir is also considered to be of strategic importance to Britain’s Secret Service MI6. in the pursuit of Anglo-American interests in the Middle East and Central Asia. (Is Hizb-ut-Tahrir another project of British MI6? | State of Pakistan).
Hizb ut-Tahrir anti-Assad rally in Tripoli, Lebanon (40 km from Syrian border), April 22, 2011. Hizb ut-Tahrir is banned in Syria
Syria is a secular Arab country, a society of religious tolerance, where Muslims and Christians have for several centuries lived in peace. Hizb ut-Tahrir (the Party of Liberation) is a radical political movement committed to the creation of an Islamic caliphate. In Syria, its avowed objective is to destabilize the secular state.
Since the Soviet-Afghan war, Western intelligence agencies as well as Israel’s Mossad have consistently used various Islamic terrorist organizations as “intelligence assets”. Both Washington and its indefectible British ally have provided covert support to “Islamic terrorists” in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kosovo and Libya, etc. as a means to triggering ethnic strife, sectarian violence and political instability.
The staged protest movement in Syria is modelled on Libya. The insurrection in Eastern Libya is integrated by the Libya Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) which is supported by MI6 and the CIA. The ultimate objective of the Syria protest movement, through media lies and fabrications, is to create divisions within Syrian society as well as justify an eventual “humanitarian intervention”.
Armed Insurrection in Syria
An armed insurrection integrated by Islamists and supported covertly by Western intelligence is central to an understanding of what is occurring on the ground.
The existence of an armed insurrection is not mentioned by the Western media. If it were to be acknowledged and analysed, our understanding of unfolding events would be entirely different.
What is mentioned profusely is that the armed forces and the police are involved in the indiscriminate killing of protesters.
The deployment of the armed forces including tanks in Daraa is directed against an organized armed insurrection, which has been active in the border city since March 17-18.
Casualties are being reported which also include the death of policemen and soldiers.
In a bitter irony, the Western media acknowledges the police/soldier deaths while denying the existence of an armed insurrection.
The key question is how does the media explain these deaths of soldiers and police?
Without evidence, the reports suggest authoritatively that the police is shooting at the soldiers and vice versa the soldiers are shooting on the police. In a April 29 Al Jazeera report, Daraa is described as “a city under siege”.
“Tanks and troops control all roads in and out. Inside the city, shops are shuttered and nobody dare walk the once bustling market streets, today transformed into the kill zone of rooftop snipers.
Unable to crush the people who first dared rise up against him – neither with the secret police, paid thugs or the special forces of his brother’s military division – President Bashar al-Assad has sent thousands of Syrian soldiers and their heavy weaponry into Deraa for an operation the regime wants nobody in the world to see.
Though almost all communication channels with Deraa have been cut, including the Jordanian mobile service that reaches into the city from just across the border, Al Jazeera has gathered firsthand accounts of life inside the city from residents who just left or from eyewitnesses inside who were able to get outside the blackout area.
The picture that emerges is of a dark and deadly security arena, one driven by the actions of the secret police and their rooftop snipers, in which soldiers and protestors alike are being killed or wounded, in which cracks are emerging in the military itself, and in which is created the very chaos which the regime uses to justify its escalating crackdown. (Daraa, a City under Siege, IPS / Al Jazeera, April 29, 2011)
The Al Jazeera report borders on the absurd. Read carefully.
“Tanks and troops control all roads in and out”, “thousands of Syrian soldiers and their heavy weaponry into Daraa”
This situation has prevailed for several weeks. This means that bona fide protesters who are not already inside Daraa cannot enter Daraa.
People who live in the city are in their homes: “nobody dares walk … the streets”. If nobody dares walk the streets where are the protesters?
Who is in the streets? According to Al Jazeera, the protesters are in the streets together with the soldiers, and both the protesters and the soldiers are being shot at by “plain clothes secret police”, by “paid thugs” and government sponsored snipers.
The impression conveyed in the report is that these casualties are attributed to infighting between the police and the military.
But the report also says that the soldiers (in the “thousands”) control all roads in and out of the city, but they are being shot upon by the plain clothed secret police.
The purpose of this web of media deceit, namely outright fabrications –where soldiers are being killed by police and “government snipers”– is to deny the existence of armed terrorist groups. The later are integrated by snipers and “plain clothed terrorists” who are shooting at the police, the Syrian armed forces and local residents.
These are not spontaneous acts of terror; they are carefully planned and coordinated attacks. In recent developments, according to a Xinhua report (April 30, 2011), armed “terrorist groups” “attacked the housing areas for servicemen” in Daraa province, “killing a sergeant and wounding two”.
While the government bears heavy responsibility for its mishandling of the military-police operation, including the deaths of civilians, the reports confirm that the armed terrorist groups had also opened fire on protesters and local residents. The casualties are then blamed on the armed forces and the police and the Bashar Al Assad government is portrayed by “the international community” as having ordered countless atrocities.
The fact of the matter is that foreign journalists are banned from reporting inside Syria, to the extent that much of the information including the number of casualties is obtained from the unverified accounts of “witnesses”.
It is in the interest of the US-NATO alliance to portray the events in Syria as a peaceful protest movement which is being brutally repressed by a “dictatorial regime”.
The Syrian government may be autocratic. It is certainly not a model of democracy but neither is the US administration, which is characterized by rampant corruption, the derogation of civil liberties under the Patriot legislation, the legalisation of torture, not to mention its “bloodless” “humanitarian wars”:
“The U.S. and its NATO allies have, in addition to U.S. Sixth Fleet and NATO Active Endeavor military assets permanently deployed in the Mediterranean, warplanes, warships and submarines engaged in the assault against Libya that can be used against Syria at a moment’s notice.
On April 27 Russia and China evidently prevented the U.S. and its NATO allies from pushing through an equivalent of Resolution 1973 against Syria in the Security Council, with Russian deputy ambassador to the UN Alexander Pankin stating that the current situation in Syria “does not present a threat to international peace and security.” Syria is Russia’s last true partner in the Mediterranean and the Arab world and hosts one of only two Russian overseas naval bases, that at Tartus. (The other being in Ukraine’s Crimea.)” (Rick Rozoff, Libyan Scenario For Syria: Towards A US-NATO “Humanitarian Intervention” directed against Syria? Global Research, April 30, 2011)
The ultimate purpose is to trigger sectarian violence and political chaos within Syria by covertly supporting Islamic terrorist organizations.
What lies ahead?
The longer term US foreign policy perspective is “regime change” and the destabilization of Syria as an independent nation-state, through a covert process of “democratization” or through military means.
Syria is on the list of “rogue states”, which are targeted for a US military intervention. As confirmed by former NATO commander General Wesley Clark the “[The] Five-year campaign plan [includes]… a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan” (Pentagon official quoted by General Wesley Clark).
The objective is to weaken the structures of the secular State while justifying an eventual UN sponsored “humanitarian intervention”. The latter, in the first instance, could take the form of a reinforced embargo on the country (including sanctions) as well as the freezing of Syrian bank assets in overseas foreign financial institutions.
While a US-NATO military intervention in the immediate future seems highly unlikely, Syria is nonetheless on the Pentagon’s military roadmap, namely an eventual war on Syria has been contemplated both by Washington and Tel Aviv.
If it were to occur, at some future date, it would lead to escalation. Israel would inevitably be involved. The entire Middle East Central Asian region from the Eastern Mediterranean to the Chinese-Afghan border would flare up.

The bodies of dead American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan weren’t even cold in their graves when the liars that put them there turned their attention toward the Islamic Republic of Iran. Looking beyond the short-sighted goals of controlling oil or fighting “terrorism,” the global elite are pursing an overarching agenda of establishing global hegemony in continuation of the British Empire’s efforts stretching back centuries.
By controlling the strategic geography and the vast networks of developed oil production infrastructure in the Middle East, the West can then hem the ambitions of rising world powers around the globe, confine them, and force them to concede to their vision of Anglo-American unipolar global governance.
The Anglo-Americans have been attempting to conquer the Middle East since the fall of the Ottoman Empire. With the London based, British sanctioned Rothschild dynasty backing the creation of the State of Israel, the Jewish people of the world were formed into the duped beachhead of Anglo-American ambitions in the region. The Anglo-American occupation beyond their proxy state has shifted overtime. Now their efforts have come to a crescendo after the staged 9/11 attacks, the resulting wars and US troops currently occupying nations on Iran’s east and west borders, all overseeing a chain reaction of US-backed revolutions sweeping the rest of the region.
Brookings Institute articulated the ongoing US policy toward Iran in terms of sanctions, US-backed revolutions, the backing of terrorists inside of Iran, and the provocation of a war the US think-tank concedes Iran does not want. RAND has also weighed in over the years, albeit outside of the realm of public debate, that Iran has possessed chemical and biological weapons for decades, maintains strict control over them, and has yet to disseminate them amongst any non-state actors. RAND and Brookings both conclude that Iranian nuclear weapons would serve as a deterrence and that Iran is a nation that is “aggressive,” but not “reckless.”
The goal of regime change in Iran is not one of America’s self-preservation, but the perpetuation of its dominion over the Middle East and its inability to concede influence to the actual people that live in the region.
Understanding this reality, conceded by the very men leading the march to war with Iran, is key to fully appreciating the level of deception and intellectual dishonesty you are about to see in “Iranium.” It will also add to your understanding, the full depth of depravity the Anglo-American establishment exists in. And finally, it will hopefully open your eyes to how Israel is being used, even gambled with on a daily basis contra to Israel’s self-preservation, to execute the Anglo-American’s designs of global hegemony.
“All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.” — Adolf Hitler
Judging by the treatment given to “Iranium,” the globalists appear to be accommodating their propaganda to the intelligence of a ham sandwich. The “Clarion Fund” production features the usual globalist “Islamophobia” suspects including John Bolton (CFR), Frank Gaffney, and James Woolsey (CFR, Foundation for Defense of Democracies), all signatories of the war mongering Project for a New American Century.
The Clarion Fund itself is merely the propaganda wing of this cadre of war mongering and war profiteering elitists. On Clarion’s “board of advisers” we find Frank Gaffney (PNAC), Daniel Pipes (PNAC, CFR), John Bolton (PNAC, CFR), Clare Lopez (Senior fellow of Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy), Harold Rhode (Hudson Institute), and retired General Paul Vallely (Fox News senior military analyst).
It must warm the cockles of the Iranian people’s hearts, who take to the streets donning the green of yet another US-backed color revolution, to know oilmen, bankers, and war profiteers wholeheartedly stand behind them in their bid to overthrow their own government, destabilize their nation, and leave it at the mercy of a region occupied by the globalists’ invading armies.
Indeed, while “Iranium” tries to build a good case for burying Iran under the destruction of total war, they end their crude propaganda film with a plea to join Iran’s “new revolution.” After reading Brookings Institute’s “Which Path to Persia?” it becomes clear that total war and a color revolution are the only two options left. Considering that “Iranium” was released just this year, directly in the midst of openly US-backed, simultaneous regime changes across the Middle East, the impeccable timing, barring yet another grand globalist coincidence, leaves a lot to think about regarding the depth and premeditated nature of the globalists’ designs.
“Iranium” conveniently skips past the unpleasant CIA-MI6 Operation Ajax that brought the Shah of Iran into power, and instead begins the film during his downfall at the hands of the Islamic Revolution. A constant and concerted effort is made by “Iranium’s” interviewees to portray Iran as an unstable, apocalyptic, backwards, world domineering regime that not only seeks to destroy the US and Israel but harbors designs of world domination. China and Russia are portrayed as being “bought off” by the Iranians with their oil wealth, while it is suggested that Iran is also using its oil wealth to build an expanding axis of anti-American nations worldwide.
Every “terrorist” attack, from the USS Cole, to 9/11, to roadside bombs in Iraq, is pinned on Iran, along with the promotion of just about every depraved act of barbarism imaginable. True to the spirit of the crude, cartoonish war propaganda films of the World Wars to which “Iranium” is an ode to, evidence and references are side-stepped in favor of unsubstantiated claims and outright lies, portrayed in the most simplistic, childish way imaginable.
For example, Frank Gaffney, at the height of his fear-mongering during the film, cites a “blue ribbon report” claiming that a single EMP burst by an Iranian built nuclear warhead, somehow launched and detonated over the United States would cause 9 out of 10 Americans to die within a year. He fails to mention that this “blue ribbon report” came out of the Heritage Foundation, the chief promoter of the “Clarion Fund” and its film “Iranium” in particular, as well as a nexus of big-business interests directly benefiting from the unending wars the “Clarion Fund” seeks to expand.
All of Heritage Foundation’s corporate “associates” can be found, starting on page 35 of their 2009 annual report.
To say that this cadre, along with promoters like David Horowitz, has done more to send young Israeli and American soldiers off to die senseless deaths than any bomb-strapped Muslim extremist is an understatement. This cadre has played a key role in keeping the “War on Terror” burning, consuming American, Israeli, and Muslim lives, souls, and treasure for a decade. It can be argued that they themselves constitute the greatest danger to the security and prosperity of the misled people of America, Israel, and the world.
However, they don’t actually believe the crass demagoguery they amateurishly peddle on a daily basis. They do it as war propagandist, and not as idealists, but for the bankers, industrialists, and power mongers they associate with. The “Clarion Fund” promotes their films within the halls of theHeritage Foundation, the “David Horowitz Freedom Center,” the Hudson Institute, and a myriad of faux-Conservative, faux-Jewish organizations across the United States.
Iranium is also promoted on Israeli news services like Arutz Sheva 7 Israeli National News, the Fox News of Israel. And just like Fox News, Arutz Sheva could care less about the people they lie to on a daily basis, the future of the nation they are based in, or the countless lives lost on either side as a result of their propaganda. In fact, Arutz Sheva promotes the globalist corporate-financier agenda and the goals of Washington and London so seamlessly, the only distinguishable aspect of their operation is that they are leading Israeli people over the edge of the cliff of imperial pursuit instead of their Western counterparts.
“Iranium” writer Alex Traiman gets airtime on fellow globalist propaganda outfit, Fox News. Traiman preys on the ignorance of his audience by suggesting Egypt’s ElBaradei represents a threat to the West, failing to mention he sits as a trustee within a prominent US policy think-tank, supposedly managing such threats.
“Iranium” full-length: the propagandized, infinitely dumbed-down version of “Which Path to Persia?” devoid of fact and therefore safe for public consumption.
I have a rule — I never intervene in Palestinian political matters. I never comment on Palestinian internal debate. I do not think that I have the right to do so : I am an ex-Israeli and an ex-Jew, and I write about Israel, Jewish Identity politics, and Zionism.
For me, the leaked Palestinian Papers provide us with a valuable glimpse into Israeli politics and Western complicity in the crimes carried out against the Palestinian people. I do realise that most Palestinian commentators agree that the leaked papers have “damaged whatever little credibility the Ramallah-based authority still enjoyed among Palestinians” ; yet, more than anything else, the Papers prove beyond doubt that Israel is not a partner for peace — In spite of the weaknesses that have been shown by the PA since the 1990’s, Israel has failed to secure a peace deal, and has consistently failed to show any will to bring the conflict to an end. In short — Israel has always wanted more.
The Papers have also clearly shown that whilst Israel likes to present an image of ‘political pluralism’ , that is little more than a deception : there is not much difference at all between Tzipi Livni and Avigdor Lieberman. Both are Zionist enthusiasts, and both are interested in a ‘Jews only state’ — Indeed, just like Lieberman Livni too,offered to “transfer Israeli Arabs.”
Yesterday, we learned that as far back as 2004, the British MI6 was assisting the PA in the war against Hamas : according to The Guardian “The Palestinian Authority’s security strategy to crush Hamas and other armed groups on the West Bank was originally drawn up by Britain’s intelligence service, MI6”.
So, at the time that the British Government was supposedly advocating “democracy” in Palestine, the reality was quite different : British ‘James Bonds’ were investing enormous effort in trying to destroy the rising political power in Palestine. One may wonder : what kind of ‘British interests’ was the MI6 serving in doing so ? It is far from being a secret that in 2004 Tony Blair was primarily funded by Labour Friends of Israel ; his NO 1 fund raiser was Lord Levy.
The Palestinian people will liberate themselves eventually — but it is also about time we all liberate ourselves from the grip of Israeli and Jewish lobbies.
Lenin (Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov) said, “The establishment of a central bank is 90% of communizing a nation.” 1 Worldwide control obviously requires extraordinary organization, superior weaponry and high technology (like HAARP), political power and monopoly control of all the resources. On February 17, 1950, James P. Warburg declared to the U.S. Senate, “We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.” 2 In Russia and China and other countries, the elite used thugs for their violent conquest of existing leaders.
Populations wouldn’t knowingly consent to their own demise. But distracted, naïve, ignorant citizens, by their consent, relinquish their liberties by placing their trust in others, (1) two-faced lying politicians who have abandoned the constitution and sold their souls and, (2) the persuasive profit-driven elite media. Smiling talking heads and brilliant, fast-talking female lawyers in low-cut garments legitimize immodesty while peddling infotainment disguised as news. They equivocate among themselves over the Neocon’s next war target which they claim is necessary to keep America safe. While selling their illusions and building our perceptions, what to wear, eat, drink, think and who to fear, they conceal, suppress or gloss over stories that are actually pertinent to our lives.
Jacob H. Schiff, Paul Warburg and other bankers influenced Congress to pass the Federal Reserve Act (December 23, 1913). The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) was created in October 1913 to minimize predictable criticism. The bankers have manufactured panics, withdrawn credit and in the process have confiscated the citizen’s resources and personal property through phony bailouts, sanctioned by compromised politicians. These actions are calculated and designed to ultimately decimate the economy. The same bankers who promoted the Federal Reserve funded Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, Zinoviev, Kamenev, Molotov and Kirov (assumed names) in their godless, violent take-over of Russia. The bankers began making major profits when Bernard Baruch, Louis Brandeis and others manipulated their puppet Woodrow Wilson into entering World War I on borrowed money after the provoked attack on the Lusitania.
Winston Churchill, a Rothschild minion, referred to the Americans traveling on the ill-fated Lusitania as “live bait,” a tactic for involving the U.S. in World War I, which started the flow of money from the pockets of U.S. citizens into the vaults of Rothschild and his fellow bankers. The “live bait” tactic had been successfully used with the deaths of American sailors aboard the USS Maine. Banker-backed corporate moguls exploited the situation. Their political puppets then ordered the military to invade the resource-rich Philippines. Meanwhile, the media vilified and dehumanized the innocent Filipinos so that the invaders could rationalize killing them. Mogul minions followed up by gathering cheap labor to extract resources and the government seized land to build military bases to manage the population and protect the resources.
To legitimize propaganda for World War I, Walter Lippmann persuaded President Wilson to create the official Committee on Public Information (CPI) on April 13, 1917. Wilson appointed newspaper publisher, George Creel, as chairman. Creel commissioned the nation’s artists to produce paintings, posters and cartoons to promote the war. With the expert help of Edward Bernays, “the father of public relations” and a nephew of Sigmund Freud, the CPI manufactured the most atrocious hate propaganda against the Germans. Bernays manipulated public opinion through crowd psychology, his uncle Sigmund’s specialty. Creel had a staff of persuasive wordsmiths – journalists, writers, intellectuals and many advertisers – who later admitted they were willing to lie, use emotional appeal and enemy demonization to generate hate and fear to elicit support for the war. 3
In anticipation of entering another war, on July 11, 1941, President Roosevelt created the Office of Coordinator of Information (COI), and appointed William J. Donovan, a millionaire Wall Street lawyer, as its head. 4 Communist apologist Eleanor Roosevelt, Wendell Willkie, George Field, Dorothy Thompson, Herbert Bayard Swope, and prominent journalists, academics, trade unionists, theologians, and public officials founded Freedom House, a CFR front, in October 1941. FDR encouraged the group’s covert propaganda activities as he hoped it would persuade U.S. citizens to accept entry into World War II. Freedom House was also instrumental in facilitating and supporting post-war policies like the Marshall Plan, NATO, and the UN. 5 The Marshall Plan transferred U.S. tax dollars into the hands of the elite, camouflaged as a humanitarian effort. U.S. taxpayers rebuilt bombed-out foreign countries with the stipulation that the money be spent with banker-backed U.S. companies who raised their prices for those foreign customers.
The U.S. embargoed Japan, which depended on imports, to provoke a military response. Churchill and Roosevelt, whose governments had broken the Japanese communication codes, then monitored the progress of Japan’s military expedition to Pearl Harbor where unwary military personnel, “live bait,” 2,402 people were killed on December 7, 1941. After Japan’s retaliatory attack, the media vilified and dehumanized them. The U.S. government, urged by California farmers, also forcibly relocated and interned 110,000 Japanese Americans, mostly west coast farmers who typically sold their produce more competitively than the Caucasians. The government put the Japanese in detention camps and froze all of their assets. At least 80,000 of those individuals had been born in America.
On June 13, 1942, after the U.S. entered the war, the COI’s propaganda department joined the new Office of War Information (OWI) and was renamed the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) still under Donovan’s direction. 6 The OSS developed worldwide clandestine capability and employed almost 13,000 men and women. 7 It conducted psychological warfare, often used by governments to marshal the troops for warfare. This included constant repetition of fabricated atrocity stories to prove that the enemy was evil and had to be eliminated. 8
In 1942, the State Department and CFR members collaborated to set up a new “supranational organization” to replace the League of Nations, based on Wilson’s internationalist ideas. 9 Secretary of State Cordell Hull (CFR) asked Communist Alger Hiss to assemble a group of fourteen other CFR members to draft the United Nations Charter (UN). 10 The UN Charter displaced the U.S. Constitution with little response from the voters who were traumatized by Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. U.S. Senators accepted the charter without even viewing a copy. They were not authorized to bind U.S. citizens, without their consent, to the conditions of the U.N. charter. 11 Stalin would join the allies only if the U.S. would accept the UN. On April 12, 1952, Secretary Dulles would claim, “Treaty law can override the Constitution. Treaties can take powers away from Congress and give them to the President.” 12
Truman suspended OSS operations on October 1, 1945. Its leaders, trained personnel and assets were ultimately transferred into the newly created Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) via the National Security Act, July 26, 1947. Among the transferees to the CIA were four future CIA Directors, Allen Dulles, Richard Helms, William Colby, and William Casey. The CIA, created and staffed by the elite, is a worldwide organization to perpetrate covert terrorist activities. It has links to Britain’s MI6 and to the Israeli Mossad. Truman struggled to regularize the CIA’s psychological warfare, one of the agency’s greatest propaganda triumphs. 13
The CIA’s activities, per the official government directive, included the following, propaganda; economic warfare; preventive direct action, including industrial sabotage, demolition and evacuation measures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance movements, guerrilla and refugee liberation groups, and support of indigenous anti-Communist or now anti-nationalist elements in countries around the world. Such operations should not include armed conflict by recognized military forces, espionage, counter-espionage, and cover and deception for military operations.” 14
Presidents Truman and Eisenhower introduced and mobilized propaganda as an official peacetime practice. Gun-toting dictators make demands but democracies use propaganda to persuade citizens to accept ideas, points of view, or policy positions as if the communication were immediately or ultimately their own. 15 Truman established the Psychological Strategy Board, as part of the CIA, on April 4, 1951 with Gordon Gray (CFR) as the first Director. Henry Kissinger, a Harvard professor, was Gray’s consultant. 16 The CIA published and disseminated hundreds of books promoting the official Cold War party line. A CIA-backed, worldwide media network provided cover for their agents and allowed the distribution of misinformation that predictably spread to the U.S. via the wire services, which also employed CIA agents who prevented problematic facts from gaining public exposure. 17
Frank Wisner, along with Allen Dulles, Richard Helms and Phillip Graham (publisher of The Washington Post and husband of CFR/Trilateralist Katharine Graham) established Operation Mockingbird, the CIA program designed to control the U.S. media. 18 For decades U.S. “news” has been fabricated. In 1981, CIA Director William Casey said, “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”
In 1948, according to John F. Kennedy, many of Truman’s supporters abandoned him because he supported the Morgenthau Plan and other questionable issues. On his whistle-stop campaign train during the presidential race, an avid U.S. Zionist delivered a suitcase containing $2 million in cash which gave him the financial boost he needed to win in what was considered the greatest election upset in U.S. history. 19 Truman believed, as a result of the Holocaust, that Jews were oppressed and deserved a homeland. The British relinquished the problem of a shared Arab-Jewish state to the UN on April 2, 1947 because of Jewish terrorism in Palestine. President Truman instructed a reluctant State Department to endorse the UN’s partition plan of November 29, 1947. At midnight on May 14, 1948, Israel’s Provisional Government announced the new State of Israel. On that same day, like Roosevelt’s recognition of the Soviet government, Truman officially recognized the Zionist government in Palestine against the advice of many people. Truman didn’t bother to tell leading State Department officials who became angry when they heard about it. On May 15, 1948, the Arab states responded by invading Israel which began the first Arab-Israeli war. 20 Zionists held only 7% of the land when they proclaimed their state. After Truman’s recognition, public relations experts started promoting the phrase “Judeo-Christian” to help establish America’s “special relationship” with Israel.
Dwight D. Eisenhower was president of Columbia University (1948–1953) just before he was installed as U.S. president. Bernard Baruch first met the like-minded Eisenhower in 1928. Rockefeller and Morgan agents and numerous CFR members backed Eisenhower, a womanizing scoundrel, in the presidential election in 1952. After his nomination he told the President of the United Synagogue of America, “The Jewish people could not have a better friend than me …I grew up believing that Jews was the chosen people and that they gave us the high ethical and moral principles of our civilization.” 21 He accommodated the OSS in their covert assassination of General George S. Patton 22 who opposed the Morgenthau Plan and Eisenhower’s death camps and was going to reveal Eisenhower’s close collaboration with the Soviets. Eisenhower halted the U.S. troops in order to allow the Soviets to “liberate” Berlin. Ilya Ehrenburg, the head of Soviet propaganda directed the Soviet troops to ravage and rape the German women. At least 50,000 and perhaps as many as 100,000 females of every age were savagely raped; many of them were tortured and killed. 23
By 1953, the CIA had 7,200 people working on covert actions, activities that took 74% of the CIA’s yearly budget. 24 The CIA always recruited their leaders from the elite class – businessmen, credible journalists, Ivy League scholars and Wall Street lawyers and bankers. Irving Kristol, Paul Weyrich, William Simon, Richard Mellon Scaife, Frank Shakespeare, and William F. Buckley, Jr. were connected to the CIA.
George Washington, in his farewell address, advised Americans to avoid an “unnatural connection with any foreign power” and “to have with them as little political connection as possible.” 25 Apparently, future leaders ignored that advice. By June 1953, the U.S. government had given Israel $293,000,000 with an additional of $200,000,000 as Export-Import bank loans. The New York Herald-Tribune of March 12, 1953 reported that, in the first five years of Israel’s existence, including gifts, the total amounted to $1,000,000,000. This was in addition to the money they extracted from Germany. 26
Beginning in 1953, Irving Kristol (CFR), “the godfather of neo-Conservatism,” and a former Trotskyite (opposed Stalin’s focus on Russia in preference of a worldwide system), co-edited the magazine Encounter, published in London and financed by the CIA. It was the voice of the CIA-funded Congress for Cultural Freedom and regularly promoted Fabian Socialism and the Labour Party. Kristol was also the editor of Commentary (1947-1952) and the editor of The Reporter (1959-1960). Kristol moved his family back to the U.S. by 1960. Daniel Bell (CFR) and Kristol founded The Public Interest (1965-2002), a publication of Freedom House, under the direction of George Field, its executive director. Field was also chairman of the RAND School for Social Science which was owned by the American Socialist Society and financed by the Garland Fund. Both Bell and Kristol were subsidized by the CIA, through the Congress for Cultural Freedom, the same organization that funded some of Gloria Steinem’s social engineering activities. Bell worked for Henry Luce (S&B, CFR) and advocated the dissolution of all borders and local governments.
Irving Kristol founded and published The National Interest (1985-2002). He was a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a member of the American Enterprise Institute and a John M. Olin Distinguished Fellow (1988-1999). He contributed a monthly column to the Wall Street Journal (1972-1997). He served on the Council of the National Endowment for the Humanities (1972- 1977). From the 1950s forward, chaos, in various strategic places, has reigned, perpetrated primarily by the CIA in conjunction with foreign intelligence agencies.
In 1954, Secretary of State John Foster Dulles ordered the CIA’s Saigon Military Mission (SMM) to engage in guerrilla warfare operations in Vietnam. Dulles told these “agent provocateurs” to “raise hell.” 27 The turmoil was then blamed on the local citizens, who were now referred to as the insurgency. CIA Director Allen Dulles assigned Edward Lansdale and his CIA cohort Lucien Conein, to engage in unconventional warfare in Vietnam where they created the Vietnam Military Assistance Advisory Group (MAAG). 28 In June 1954, the SMM established a campaign of undercover military and psychological warfare. They had unlimited U.S. taxpayer dollars and engaged in political, psychological and terrorist activities against the native population in the northern regions, especially in Hanoi and in the surrounding Tonkin area. They polluted petroleum supplies, sabotaged the railroad, tried to destroy the largest printing business in the North, bombed the post offices, and distributed millions of propaganda leaflets to incite fear and vast amounts of counterfeit money which created calculated inflation. 29
When the Tonkinese villagers, mostly Catholic, were sufficiently frightened and intimidated, the CIA offered to transport them from the north to the south. The CIA manipulated the Catholic hierarchy who then urged thousands of Catholics to evacuate. 30 Those resistant to relocation were told that the U.S. was going to use the atomic bomb on them if a civil war erupted between the north and the south. 31 Weapons and agents were left in the north with an abundance of CIA-supplied counterfeit currency to continue the economic destabilization. 32
Tens of thousands of the terrorized citizens fled on foot. The CIA transported the remainder via their Civil Air Transport Airlines (CAT) and U.S. Navy ships at a cost of about $100 million. The Catholics were moved into a predominately Buddhist population which intentionally created religious, civil, and economic strife. 33 The CIA and the Mossad are expert in population relocation in order to provoke civil and religious strife. The deliberate decimation of Mexico’s peso in the mid 1990s (and Bush’s de facto North American Union) created an influx of desperate Mexicans into the U.S, in conjunction with the drug cartel’s operations. Zionists expelled 750,000 Palestinians from their homeland in 1948; forced another 350,000 to flee Gaza in 1967 and forced another 147,000 Syrians from the Golan Heights in order to repopulate the areas, without compensation. Of course, the media suppresses these terrorist activities. Also, U.S. warfare in the Middle East caused thousands of dispossessed Muslims to flee elsewhere. This ongoing clash of cultures, the foreign incursion into America’s diminishing economy and deindustrialization (by corporate outsourcing for cheaper labor) creates tension. The media incites religious and economic outrage while concealing the cause and effect activities of the real culprits who prey on all of us.
In 1954, Israeli agents working under cover planted bombs in several Egyptian buildings, including a U.S. facility. The Israelis were trying to flip U.S. support of Egypt to Israel. So they planted evidence implicating the Arabs. However, one of the bombs detonated prematurely. The Egyptians captured one of the culprits who revealed the identities of the other members of the Israeli espionage group, some of whom were from Israel and others were local Jews. Often Israelis move to other countries, hold dual citizenship, and engage in dubious activities while working in government positions and other influential positions, in opposition to the best interests of the host country. The Israeli media immediately denied all culpability and claimed that it was a scam perpetrated by “anti-Semites,” a convenient oft-used ruse to silence justifiable criticism. However, in a subsequent trial, individuals produced clear-cut evidence that proved Israeli involvement in the bombing. Top Israelis blamed Israel’s Defense Minister Pinhas Lavon; he resigned. The operation is known as the Lavon Affair or Operation Susannah. Regarding anti-semitism, Norman G. Finkelstein wrote, “The new anti-Semitism actually incorporates three main components: (1) exaggeration and fabrication, (2) mislabeling legitimate criticism of Israeli policy, and (3) the unjustified yet predictable spillover from criticism of Israel to Jews generally.” 34
On December 11, 1955, the Syrians captured five Israeli soldiers who were in the process of installing a wiretapping apparatus on the Syrian telephone network. The Israeli’s version of the event was that the five men had been abducted in Israel and taken to Syria and tortured. Public opinion was skewed in Israel and in the West in favor of Israel. By then, Israel had diverted the flow of the Jordan River at the expense of the area’s other inhabitants. On October 1, 1955, the U.S. government, through the CIA, gave Israel the “green light” to attack Egypt. 35
I was in Israel in 1999 when our group received special permission to visit a specific site on the Jordan River which was little more than a tiny stream of putrid water. It was, at that time, guarded by several gun-totting Israeli soldiers. Our tour group was repeatedly warned not to discuss Christianity with any Israeli citizen as they have disdain for Christians. According to the Talmud (Traditions of the Elders), Jesus led Israel astray; his mother Mary was an adulterer and a whore and Jesus is in hell, in boiling excrement. The Talmud states that Christians will also be in hell for eternity in “boiling excrement” if they oppose “Judaism.” Jewish sages encourage their followers to daily recite the following “Blessed be thou who hast not made me a goy.” 36 Goy is a negative term for gentile; some say it means cattle.
In October 1960, just prior to the presidential election, John F. Kennedy visited with his good friend, Charles Bartlett, a journalist. The previous evening, Kennedy had been the dinner guest of an elite group of wealthy, influential Jews at the New York home of Abraham Feinberg, chairman of the American Bank and Trust Company. Their spokesman told Kennedy that they recognized that his campaign was in financial difficulty. The group then offered significant financial help if Kennedy as president “would allow them to set the course of Middle East policy over the next four years.” 37
Bartlett recalled, “He said if he ever did get to be president, he would push for a law that would subsidize presidential campaigns out of the U.S. Treasury. He added that whatever the cost of this subsidy, it would insulate future presidential candidates from this kind of pressure and save the country a lot of grief in the long run.” Congressman Paul Findley (1961-1982) inquired further and discovered that Adlai E. Stevenson had a similar experience in 1956. 38
Findley wrote, “Ethnic group pressure is an ever-present part of U.S. partisan politics, and because the president of the United States is the executor of all foreign policy, and the formulator of most of it, pressures naturally center on the people who hold or seek the presidency. When the pressure is from friends of Israel, presidents—and presidential candidates—often yield.” 39 This has been the case since Truman’s presidency (1945–1953). Condoleezza Rice once said, “We have an Israel-centric foreign policy.” Regarding Iraq, Findley said, “Our forces invaded because Israel wanted us to topple Saddam. Two religious communities – one consisting of a combination of secular and ultra-Orthodox Jews and the other of misguided Christian fundamentalists – control U.S. Middle East policies.” 40
By 1977, Washington Post journalist Carl Bernstein said that over 400 journalists, distinguished reporters and foreign correspondents were CIA employees. A high-level source told Bernstein, “One journalist is worth twenty agents.” Pulitzer Prize winner Arthur Schlesinger, a former OSS agent transferred to the CIA. 41 The CIA, before 1990, paid college professors to write at least 1,200 propagandistic, anti-Communist books about places like the Soviet Union, Vietnam, China, Cuba and the Congo. 42 Columbia University, along with other schools, is a CIA recruiting ground. The Communists recruited Whittaker Chambers when he was there.
Prior to 1967, Islamic fundamentalism was a relatively small movement. Osama bin Laden, supported by the CIA, headed the al Qaeda network. Al Qaeda, referred to as the database, was part of a CIA operation after the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan on December 24, 1979, part of Columbia professor Zbigniew Brzezinski’s plan to destabilize the Soviet Union. Brzezinski (CFR), the founding Director of the Trilateral Commission and a Rockefeller minion with CIA ties as early as 1959, was President Carter’s National Security Advisor (1977-1981). By 1984, the CIA supplied textbooks for Afghan students through USAID, a CIA front group. The textbooks were written under the direction of Dr. Thomas Gouttierre, head of Afghanistan Studies at the University of Nebraska where the books were published. Dr. Gouttierre is friends with Zalmay Khalilzad (CFR), U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan and Iraq (2003). Khalilzad, an Afghan-born Muslim was a former adviser to Unocal and was an Assistant Political Science Professor at Columbia University (1979-1986) where he worked closely with Brzezinski.
The textbooks were designed to create a militaristic populace in order to provoke resistance to the Soviets and future enemies. The book’s illustrations included tanks, land mines and missiles and promoted hatred. 43 The U.S. supplied these incendiary textbooks (1984-1994) under Presidents Reagan and George H. W. Bush (S&B). Bush was Vice President under Reagan (1981-1989). All CIA records regarding Bush and his company, Zapata covering 1960 to 1966 were destroyed when he became vice president in 1981. Bush was CIA director (1976-1977).
In 1982, President Reagan created the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) in order to acceptably manage CIA activities. Freedom House, the group created in 1941, became a part of this network. NED helped to finance Freedom House. Paul Wolfowitz, in the early 1980s, along with his neoconservative allies, collaborated with numerous Trotskyites. With the hidden funding and under the cover of conservative think tanks, the U.S. government can influence the public and conceal its interventions in foreign politics.
At least six million people had perished by 1987 as a result of the CIA’s covert operations. Not only is the CIA not an intelligence agency, it distorts information and perpetuates misinformation and disinformation to justify its own goals. This wide-range deception has resulted in organized terrorism throughout the world. Using the CIA, our government routinely dismisses or ignores national and international laws under the guise of “national security.” 44
Interestingly, alarm over Islamic fundamentalism actually occurred at about the same time that Reagan called for the dismantlement of the Berlin Wall, formally concluded on October 3, 1990, followed by the official collapse of the Soviet Union on December 25, 1991. With Soviet Communism gone and the Berlin Wall dismantled, the State Department would either be forced to create another enemy or decrease their defense budget to about half of what it had been which would really cut into the elite’s profits. Shortly thereafter, the first Gulf War was devised to purportedly protect the oil resources of the Middle East against so-called “rogue states and nuclear outlaws.” 45 Islamic fundamentalism, our latest enemy, replaced Communism.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf (CFR), the man behind the proposed Muslim community center two blocks from ground zero, came to the U.S. with his family in 1965. In 1997 he founded the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMS), a tax-exempt foundation. Its mission statement states, “We collaborate with other faith-based organizations to build relationships of trust through dialogue and education, honoring the diversity of faiths, sharing commonalities, and celebrating differences.” 46 Interestingly, ASMS is funded by the Rockefeller Brothers; the Carnegie Corporation of New York; Rockefeller Philanthropy; Rockefeller Brothers Fund; Global Fund for Women; The Russell Family Foundation; Danny Kaye & Sylvia Fine Foundation; Graham Charitable Foundation; Henry Luce Foundation; Hunt Alternatives; The Ms. Foundation and other elite tax-exempt foundations. 47 The people who sign the check determine the policy. Are all of these people on the same team, playing the public and causing controlled conflict?
In 1972, Gloria Steinem (CIA agent extraordinaire), Patricia Carbine, Letty Cottin Pogrebin and Marlo Thomas founded The Ms. Foundation. 48 Steinem’s social engineering activities led to Roe v. Wade. Pogrebin authored In Defense of the Law of Return for The Nation on December 22, 2003, a law passed in Israel on July 5, 1950 which grants any Jew automatic citizenship. 49 Pogrebin, a financial contributor to Obama since 2004, 50 is a member of Americans for Peace Now (APN) the most prominent American Jewish Zionist organization working to achieve a comprehensive political settlement to the Arab-Israeli conflict. 51
Former Harvard professor, William “Bill” Kristol, the son of Irving Kristol, was Chief of Staff to Vice President Dan Quayle, under the first Bush regime. Bill Kristol founded the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), a tax-exempt foundation, in the spring of 1997, the same year that Rauf founded the ASMS. PNAC, with close ties to the American Enterprise Institute, was funded by the Sarah Scaife Foundation, the John M. Olin Foundation and the Bradley Foundation. Its objectives are U.S. Global supremacy and a “Greater Israel.” Twenty-five people signed their mission statement, seventeen of whom belong to the CFR, whose objective is a one-world government. Founding members include Elliott Abrams (CFR), Gary Bauer, William J. Bennett (Irving Kristol’s protégé), Jeb Bush, Richard B. Cheney (CFR), Eliot A. Cohen (CFR), Midge Decter (CFR), Paula Dobriansky (CFR), Steve Forbes, Aaron Friedberg (CFR), Francis Fukuyama (CFR), Frank Gaffney, Fred C. Ikle (CFR), Donald Kagan (CFR), Zalmay Khalilzad (CFR), I. Lewis Libby (CFR), Norman B. Podhoretz (CFR), Dan Quayle, Peter W. Rodman (CFR), Stephen P. Rosen (CFR), Henry S. Rowen (CFR), Donald Rumsfeld, Vin Weber (CFR), George Weigel (CFR), and Paul Wolfowitz (CFR). In 1992 Libby and Wolfowitz wrote Defense Planning Guidance for Defense Secretary Dick Cheney.
Bill Kristol, advocates neoconservatism, the American version of Trotsky’s Bolshevism. Kristol, a Bilderberger, a Manhattan Institute trustee, is also the editor and co-founder, along with John Podhoretz, of the Weekly Standard Magazine, established September 17, 1995 and funded, at a loss, by Rupert Murdoch (CFR), a Zionist. This so-called conservative magazine, co-edited by Fred Barnes, promotes the warhawk mentality, the same message heard on numerous “conservative” talk shows and on Murdoch’s Fox Network. Weekly Standard contributors include Joseph Epstein, Charles Krauthammer (CFR), Brit Hume, a Fulbright scholar, 52 Tucker Carlson, Robert W. Kagan (CFR) foreign policy analyst and son of Donald Kagan (CFR), Yale Professor John Podhoretz (son of Norman Podhoretz) and others. In 1995 Kristol confessed to the New Yorker: “The liberal media were never that powerful, and the whole thing was often used as an excuse by conservatives for conservative failures.” 53 See a video on PNAC here (warning: language).
Norman B. Podhoretz (CFR), a Trotskyite, in his books has admitted that the reason for the Cold War was to weaponize Israel to fight the Arab nations. He belongs to the influential New York chapter of the American Jewish Committee, one of the leading Zionist organizations operating within the U.S. It publishes the “liberal-turned-conservative” Commentary magazine. 54 Kagan is a columnist for the Washington Post which was associated with the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird. He is a senior associate of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and wrote Of Paradise and Power: America and Europe in the New World Order.
Now, remembering that the CIA probably controls much of what we hear from the elite-owned media, according to Pew, 30% of all Americans obtain their news from talk radio and cable television – many never read a book. A large percentage get their “news” from the Fox Network whose employees receive the morning memo, a directive on how to spin the “news” of the day. Roger Ailes, former Republican campaign wizard, is president of Fox News Channel and chairman of the Fox Television Stations Group which has a throng of “journalists” and guests who push right-wing propaganda disguised as news. 55 According to a decision by the Florida Appeals Court on February 14, 2003 in the Jane Akre whistleblower lawsuit, the court agreed with Fox News that it is not against the law to distort or falsify the news in the U.S. 56
In 1997, Israël Shahak wrote, “Since the spring of 1992, public opinion in Israel is being prepared for the prospect of a war with Iran, to be fought to bring about Iran’s total military and political defeat. In one version, Israel would attack Iran alone; in another it would ‘persuade’ the West to do the job.” 57 On January 26, 1998, the PNAC warhawks, in a letter to President Clinton, urged him to invade Iraq to depose Saddam Hussein.
In October 1998, the Catastrophic Terrorism Study Group completed a nine-month long study of the “technologies and defenses” against terrorists. The study group was a collaboration of the faculty of Harvard, MIT, Stanford and the University of Virginia. It was funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and the Herbert S. Winokur Public Policy Fund at Harvard University. The group produced a report entitled: Catastrophic Terrorism: Elements of a National Policy. 58 An article based on the academic Study Group report appeared in the CFR journal Foreign Affairs in the November-December 1998 issue, the same year that PNAC wrote to President Clinton suggesting the removal of Hussein.
The project director was Philip D. Zelikow, later the gatekeeper executive director of the 9/11 Commission. He earlier co-authored a book with Condoleezza Rice (both members of Bush 41’s National Security Council) entitled Germany Unified and Europe Transformed: A Study in Statecraft. Zelikow also authored The National Security Strategy of the United States which became the new preemptive war doctrine of the Bush administration written for then National Security Council Director, Condoleezza Rice who had worked on the Bush transition team. He had a hidden agenda – connect al Qaeda and Iraq. 59
PNAC’s policy statements were compiled in Rebuilding America’s Defenses, Strategy, Forces and Resources for a New Century, published in September 2000.
We read, “Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.” 60 It appears that 9/11 was that new Pearl Harbor. As Shahak indicated, Israel was going to persuade the West to wage war. Just how would Israeli political leaders “persuade” the U.S. to invade their enemy, a country that has not militarily assaulted the U.S.? The elite, for over 100 years, has used false flag assaults and very pervasive media propaganda to win public support for their warfare. The CIA and their foreign intelligence counterpart, the Mossad, have lengthy experience in false flag tactics, the actual reason for their existence. At least two previous incidents, probably more, involved Israel.
On June 8, 1967, there was a failed attempt to use the “live bait” device, with government foreknowledge, with the USS Liberty. The Zionist owned U.S. media kept quiet about the Israeli attack on the ship. Then on October 12, 2000, the “live bait” tactic was used in the USS Cole where seventeen U.S. sailors were killed, and thirty-nine were injured. A small boat moved to the port side of the destroyer when all the sailors were gathering in the galley for lunch. An explosion occurred which created a 40-by-40-foot hole in the ship. Al Qaeda, led by Osama bin Laden, a CIA asset, took credit for the attack. Yet, samples of the explosives retrieved from the ship’s hull showed that materials used were only available in the U.S. and Israel. Then the “live bait” tactic was used on 9/11 to get the U.S. to remove Hussein and bomb Iraq back to the Stone Age.
Within twenty-four hours of 9/11 the media miraculously, as if all the information were prepared beforehand, revealed histories, photos, and details about the Muslim terrorists who allegedly perpetrated the attack. Bin Laden, who died in December 2001, even came back from the dead to claim responsibility. 61 Fox News announced his death on December 26, 2001. 62 Despite the terrorist’s amazing ability to subvert the military response apparatus of the world’s most powerful nation, they failed to cover their trail and left a substantial amount of easy-to-find fireproof evidence. Their unhindered assault on a specific section of the Defense Department halted an audit that would have exposed billions of dollars of stolen money that had been funneled to special friends. The Port Authority, after it lost a 10-year asbestos lawsuit on May 1, 2001, were stuck with a money-losing albatross that they couldn’t get a license to demolish. On July 24, 2001 Eisenberg of the Port Authority leased the towers to his friend Larry Silverstein. Almost prophetically, Silverstein quickly insured the towers against a terrorist attack. 63
On September 20, 2001, PNAC members sent a letter to President Bush in which they urged him to wage the nation’s “first war of the 21st century” including the capture or killing of Osama bin Laden, and the capture and prosecution of any and all perpetrators of 9/11. They encouraged Bush to go after any other group that means us harm. They advocated the end of Hussein’s government and the financial and military support of any Iraqi opposition. They also encouraged him to go after Hezbollah and the countries that support them, Iran and Syria. If Iran and Syria fail to comply and cooperate then the U.S. should take action against those countries. They further recommended that the U.S. withhold support from the Palestinians in favor of support to Israel. 64
The letter said, “…But even if evidence does not link Iraq directly to the attack, any strategy aiming at the eradication of terrorism and its sponsors must include a determined effort to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq.” 65 Richard Perle said, “This is total war. We are fighting a variety of enemies. There are lots of them out there. All this talk about first we are going to do Afghanistan, then we will do Iraq, then we take a look around and see how things stand. This is entirely the wrong way to go about it… If we just let our vision of the world go forth, and we embrace it entirely, and we don’t try to piece together clever diplomacy, but just wage a total war … our children will sing great songs about us years from now.” 66 Paul Wolfowitz said the anti-terrorism campaign has to be broad and sustained. “It’s not going to stop if a few criminals are taken care of.” 67 Iran, another industrial competitor, is the next war target which brings us back to the subject of Feisal Abdul Rauf, the individual behind the Manhattan mosque project.
Rauf is a member of the World Economic Forum’s Council of 100, an organization composed of business, political, religious, media and opinion leaders that advocates openness and understanding between the West and Muslim world. 68 Rauf is also a member of the CFR’s Religious Advisory Committee, along with Jim Wallis, publisher of Sojourners. He has been an imam in New York City for twenty-seven years. The building project, the Cordoba House, a 13-story, $100 million project, is planned as a community center complete with a swimming pool, culinary school, art studios and other features. It is to be built on properly zoned, private property two blocks from ground zero. The city Landmarks Preservation Commission approved of the construction. However, the American Center for Law and Justice, founded by Reverend Pat Robertson, filed a lawsuit in a state court to dispute the commission’s decision. They could have built the facility, like any other private group, on private property, without public scrutiny. The media has driven this issue and incited anger.
Recall that Freedom House was organized in 1941 to promote World War II. They are still propagandizing. William Howard Taft IV (S&B, PNAC69) is its current chairman. It is an international non-governmental organization that endorses a one-world government and opposes all nationalist governments. It has offices in offices in Algeria, Hungary, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mexico, Uzbekistan, Poland, Romania, Serbia and Ukraine. Taft supports the Law of the Sea which places all of the oceans under the jurisdiction of the UN. Since 1941, the group has developed ties to the CIA, the Brookings Institution, the U.S. Institute of Peace and other institutions and government agencies. Freedom House, a propaganda vehicle, is also a front group for the CFR, the British counterpart of the Royal Institute of International Affairs. In 2005 Freedom House was receiving U.S. government funds “for clandestine activities inside Iran.”
The organization receives about 66% of its budget from the U.S. government. 70 See the list of their board members here. Other financing comes from the Scaife Family Foundation which finances many groups and individuals, especially those associated with the CFR, including, Newt Gingrich’s (CFR) GOPAC, the Federalist Society, the Media Research Center and Joseph Farah’s World Net Daily – all of which selectively dispense “conservative views.” The National Endowment for Democracy, a proponent for one world governance also finances Freedom House. 71
R. James Woolsey (CFR, PNAC) former CIA Director (1993-1995) was a signatory on the 1998 letter to President Clinton calling for Hussein’s removal. On September 11, 2001, Woolsey claimed that Iraq was involved in the attack. A year later, he claimed that Iraq was also involved in the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center and the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Woolsey, a former Chairman of Freedom House board (2003- 2005) was a Rhodes Scholar and a Booz Allen Vice President (2002-2008). 72 He was part of the secretive North American Forum held in Canada, September 12-14, 2006. 73 In July 2006, Woolsey suggested that the U.S. bomb Syria. His wife, Suzanne H. Woolsey (CFR), has been a Director of the Fluor Corp., an engineering and contracting firm since February 3, 2004. By August 2004, Fluor had a $1.6 billion Iraqi reconstruction contract. Fluor made about $1.3 billion for reconstruction after Hurricane Katrina (August 23-29, 2005), 74 a storm (HAARP?) that displaced 1.5 million people and caused about $81.2 billion in damage. On September 26, 2005, Senator Mel Martinez hosted the Halliburton-sponsored “Katrina Reconstruction Summit” for no-Katrina-victims-need-apply contractors. 75
Freedom House’s Center for Religious Freedom is now listed on the Hudson Institute web site. On November 15, 2005, Nina Shea (CFR), the Director of the Center for Religious Freedom at Freedom House presented a 19-page report to the Committee on International Relations of the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Africa, Global Human Rights and International Operations. This report describes the followers of Saudi Arabia’s Wahhabi ideology and elaborates on the millions of Muslims who have relocated to the United States. Shea said, “Earlier this year, Freedom House’s Center for Religious Freedom released a report based on a year-long study of the radically intolerant Wahhabi ideology contained in documents spread, published, or otherwise generated by the government of Saudi Arabia and found in the United States. Extremist Wahhabism is Saudi Arabia’s state religion; it is also the Saudi government’s aim to propagate it and have it replace traditional and moderate interpretations of Islam worldwide, including within the United States.” 76
Another report, Saudi Arabia’s Curriculum of Intolerance, issued on May 23, 2006, by Freedom House’s Center for Religious Freedom analyzed the textbooks used by the Saudi Ministry of Education by their elementary and secondary students. These textbooks, according to Freedom House, advocate hatred of anyone, including Muslims, who reject the Wahhabi dogma. The 2006 report was created by Freedom House’s Center for Religious Freedom which collaborated with the Washington-based Institute for Gulf Affairs. Their study covered the textbooks used in Saudi Arabia and Saudi schools outside that country. The Institute for Gulf Affairs collected the books to be used in the study from families, teachers, and administrators associated with Saudi schools. Freedom House then had them translated. 77 Did USAID have anything to do with these textbooks?
Nina Shea said, “What is being taught today in Saudi public school textbooks about how Muslims should relate to other religious communities will poison the minds of a new generation of Saudis. Whatever changes have been made in the Saudi educational system, clearly more needs to be done.” The Saudi government had revised all of their educational materials to eliminate all intolerant materials. But, according to the Freedom House report, the textbooks “condemn and denigrate the majority of Sunni Muslims” who reject the Wahhabi brand of Islam. The report also claims that the textbooks encourage Muslims to “hate” Christians, Jews and other “unbelievers.” The Saudi public school system has 25,000 schools, with about five million students. They also have academies in nineteen world capitals. One of these is located just outside of Washington in Alexandria, Virginia. They all use the same religious textbooks. Saudi Arabia also distributes its textbooks around the world to many Islamic schools. 78
Barack Obama, as I have previously written, was a CIA asset and attended Columbia University where Marxist apologist, Zbigniew Brzezinski, taught. Obama was born (1961), named, mentored, media puffed and financed into the White House by Soros, Rockefeller and other bankers. According to Wayne Madsen, Obama’s mother, grandparents and other associates were also CIA.
Former community organizer, Barack Hussein Obama, be he Muslim, Christian or a minion for Israel, is furthering the destruction of the U.S. economy per his agreement with the bankers when they financed his presidency. Citizens will blame the Muslim in the White House and take vengeance on U.S. Muslims as the destabilization continues. Obama, in 2008, committed his efforts to serving AIPAC’s agenda. He has links to Wright’s Christian (liberation theology) church in Chicago and has publicly implied that he is Muslim. Is he just a CIA chameleon who alters his rhetoric for his current audience? Or is this a distracting Psy Ops designed to distract and divide U.S. citizens while the elite privately snicker. He is still a community organizer but on a much larger scale.
Part of the operation has Republican Orly Taitz (b. 1960), the Jewish lawyer, dentist, and perhaps Mossad, along with Philip J. Berg, a Jewish Democrat are publicizing Obama’s Kenyan birth, a detail that was openly announced in 2004 when he was running for an Illinois senate seat. 79 Taitz emigrated from the Soviet Union to Israel in 1981 where she attended Hebrew University. In 1987 she met and quickly married a software engineer visiting from California named Yosef Taitz and soon she was in the U.S. She believes that Israel should “exterminate” the Arabs. She is associated with AIPAC and believes that Obama’s policies are “a clear and present danger to Israel.” 80 Ironically, in regard to the birth issue, Taitz said, “When you allow somebody with allegiance to other nations to become president, that’s extremely dangerous.” 81 Good Heavens, save us from the arrogant, blatant elites and their useful idiots.
That’s true for any political office. Three hundred members (69%) of the House of Representatives signed a letter addressed to Secretary of State Clinton affirming “the unbreakable bond” that exists between the U.S. and the State of Israel. Given that fact, I hardly think that the imposition of Sharia law is a viable threat. 82 As long as the “National Menorah” is prominently displayed at the White House83 during the holidays instead of a Christian scene, I think U.S. citizens can be assured that Sharia law is not a threat.
Scientists understand that monotonous patterns produce a stupor that renders people vulnerable to hypnosis. Certain low-level frequencies or unperceived waves exist in radio and television, the normal vehicle for mass hypnosis. It is the prime method of controlling huge populations. 84 On 9/11, everything shut down, except our television sets; we were extra attentive and traumatized, the most effective of any indoctrination process. Many still believe that Muslims perpetrated 9/11.
Politicians, journalists, and media personalities are repeatedly expressing outrage over the possible construction of the Muslim community center two blocks from ground zero. This attention serves to ignite the emotions that we all felt that day, conveniently near the anniversary. It serves to re-establish the connection between 9/11 and the Muslims. It is a psychological operation of the most organized kind. The government has had almost a decade to reiterate their deceptive version of the event. Many naïve people, not wanting to complicate their lives with the horrible reality, believe the government/media’s first reports – it is easier than acknowledging that they’ve been so easily deceived.
Former Speaker of the House, internationalist Newt Gingrich (CFR, NAFTA proponent), a recipient of millions from Sheldon Adelson, argues, “One of our biggest mistakes in the aftermath of 9/11 was naming our response to the attacks ‘the war on terror’ instead of accurately identifying radical Islamists (and the underlying ideology of radical Islamism) as the target of our campaign… Radical Islamism is more than simply a religious belief. It is a comprehensive political, economic, and religious movement that seeks to impose Sharia—Islamic law—upon all aspects of global society.” 85
Madeleine Albright (CFR), while Secretary of State, said, “If we have to use force, it is because we are America. We are the indispensable nation.” 86 Over 170 million people were slaughtered by governments during the 20th century. Ten million died in World War I and fifty million died in World War II. Of those who were killed during World War II, almost 70% were civilians. This so-called collateral damage was a consequence of indiscriminant bombing by Britain and America. 87 Then there was Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a potential war in Iran and the unpublicized CIA wars. Yet, many citizens, rather than focusing on America’s brutality, claim that Islam is violent.
The Muslims are not the enemy. They don’t extort usury through the Federal Reserve; they aren’t manufacturing population-reducing vaccines and GMO seeds; they didn’t devise our abortion laws (about fifty million dead); they didn’t bail out the banks; they didn’t create the Department of Homeland Security and impose the PATRIOT Act; they aren’t wiretapping our private conversations or scanning us at the airport; they didn’t impose godless Communism on several countries and cause the death of millions of innocent people; they haven’t instituted the draconian healthcare laws; they have not orchestrated the nation’s economic crashes; they have not deindustrialized the nation and outsourced so many jobs; they haven’t wiped out the middle class by passing trade laws like NAFTA; 88 and they haven’t foreclosed on thousands of homes; they are not the reason thousands of people live in tent cities; they haven’t developed depleted uranium weapons. Instead of worrying about a mosque, consider what’s going on behind the closed doors at the Federal Reserve, the Pentagon, the Senate and House chambers, the CFR, the State Department, the UN or dozens of other places. The Muslims didn’t instigate the attacks on the USS Liberty or the USS Cole and they didn’t orchestrate the highly organized attack in Manhattan on 9/11.
People should be burning the 9/11 Commission Report or if they insist on burning a religious book, burn the Bible or the Talmud instead of the Quran. Most of the people who insist that the Quran is full of hate have never even seen the book.

Over the past 60 years, the racist regime of Israel has been continually scoffing the international community under the cover of “deliberate ambiguity” to develop one of the most perilous nuclear arsenals in the world. According to the Federation of American Scientists, Israel possesses more than 200 nuclear warheads which are simply adequate to evaporate the whole world in a matter of moments.
Israel which is the only possessor of nuclear weapons in the Middle East and one of the three non-signatories to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty has blatantly rejected the appeal of the 189 signatories of the NPT, including its key ally the United States, to sign up to the treaty and put its nuclear facilities under the comprehensive safeguards of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
The 2010 NPT review conference which wrapped up on May 28 in New York and was attended by the representatives from the NPT member states called on the five United Nations Security Council permanent members to move towards eliminating their nuclear arsenals and affirmed the necessity of Israel’s joining the treaty and abiding by its international obligations with regards to nuclear non-proliferation.
Zionist officials, however, rejected the appeal and resorted to the excuse that Israel is not signatory to the NPT, so they’re not legally obliged to reveal the information related to their nuclear arsenal, nor are they responsible for reducing their atomic weapons, let alone eliminating them whatsoever.
Israel which has been recurrently given impunity from international laws by the United States and enjoyed imperviousness to any kind of legal and judicial responsibility before the international community with regards to its criminal acts of mass murder, ethnic cleansing and collective punishment is now reminding the public opinions of the chauvinistic and mischievous apartheid regime of South Africa which was ruled by the National Party government between 1948 and 1994.
Israeli regime which has killed more than 6,300 Palestinians since the September 2000 and demolished more than 24,000 Palestinian homes since 1967 as a part of its expansionistic policy of extending its borders from the Nile to the Euphrates has been subject to 65 UN resolutions since its establishment which include resolutions that legally obligate Israel to annihilate its nuclear arsenal. The UNSC resolution 487 which was adopted on June 19, 1981 explicitly called “upon Israel urgently to place its nuclear facilities under IAEA safeguards”.
On September 23, 1987, 12 IAEA members including Iran submitted a draft resolution to the IAEA General Conference titled “Israeli Nuclear Capabilities and Threat” which demanded that Israel place all its nuclear facilities under IAEA safeguards in compliance with the Security Council Resolution 487 of 1981. It also requested the IAEA director general to consider the implementation of provisions in the UN General Assembly resolutions 41/12 and 41/93 in which Israel was officially asked to legalize its illegal nuclear activities.
In an October 29, 1986 resolution, the UN General Assembly had called upon Israel to urgently place all of its nuclear facilities under the IAEA supervision and commit itself to avoid attacking the nuclear facilities of other countries. This resolution was adopted in support of the UNSC 487 resolution after a squadron of Israeli F-16A jetfighter aircraft bombed and destructed Iraq’s Osirak nuclear reactor on June 7, 1981.
Since then, Israel has been recurrently under the pressure of independent nations who couldn’t tolerate the double standards of the U.S. and Israel with regards to nuclear non-proliferation. Israel has been asked and demanded a number of times, by various international organizations and IAEA member states, to move towards nuclear disarmament; however, the irrational leaders of the Israeli regime adamantly stuck to their excuse that Israel is not an IAEA signatory and hence would not be necessarily responsible to heed the calls.
Israel’s explicit violation of UNSC resolution 487 and its inattentiveness to the final resolution of the NPT 2010 review conference however, has been supported by the United States which has discriminatorily disregarded the demand of the NPT signatories who want a nuclear-free Middle East.
In a statement released last Friday, the U.S. National Security Advisor Gen. James L. Jones unambiguously supported Israel’s possession of nuclear weapons: “The United States will not permit a conference or actions that could jeopardize Israel’s national security. We will not accept any approach that singles out Israel or sets unrealistic expectations.”
The message transmitted by General Jones was clear and unequivocal. Israel’s national security is hinged on its ownership of nuclear weapons. Should Israel annihilate its nuclear arsenal, its frail security will be threatened seriously. Expecting that Israel abides by its international obligations is unrealistic, because Israel has never been a realistic regime. Its very foundation was based on imaginary pedestals and its flimsy existence continues to be imaginary. Singling out Israel is not accepted, because a nuclear-free Middle East means the overthrow of Israel’s apartheid regime.
The Government of Israel published a statement on Saturday night that transparently exhibited Israel’s impunity from any kind of international law: “As a non-signatory state of the NPT, Israel is not obligated by the decisions of this Conference, which has no authority over Israel. Given the distorted nature of this resolution, Israel will not be able to take part in its implementation.”
This statement was clearly an invitation to global revolt by the regime of Israel. If a country is not a signatory to the NPT, then it would be exempted from nuclear obligations, so it can possess nuclear weapons; therefore, “O! You countries who want to hold nuclear weapons; pull out of the NPT and exempt yourself from its compulsions. You can freely possess nuclear weapons, should you be a non-signatory to NPT. That makes you free. Become liberated!”
However, the interesting section of the story is that not only will Israel move towards nuclear disarmament, but it has plans to expand its nuclear capability. A 2002 book published by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace titled “Deadly Arsenals” revealed that Israel is attempting to arm its diesel submarines with nuclear cruise missiles: “Published reports going back to 1998 describe Israel’s acquisition of diesel submarines and testing of cruise missiles. Israel “is believed to have deployed” 100 Jericho short-range and medium range missiles that are nuclear capable.”
In a September 24, 2009 blog post, the renowned British writer and human rights activists alludes to his country’s negligence with regards to Israel’s growing nuclear arsenal. He explains that one of his friends working in MI6 has told him that the Israeli nuclear capacity is greater than that of Britain by 2009. Murray then goes on to criticize the British ex-Premier Gordon Brown who never told a single word about Israel’s nuclear weapons, but ironically stated that his country would move towards nuclear disarmament: “I am very pleased that Brown has put the UK’s nuclear weapons into disarmament talks and has endorsed the goal of eliminating nuclear weapons. But with Israel not a party to any of the treaties, and with Brown and Obama refusing to admit even that the World’s fourth largest nuclear arsenal exists, I can only presume they believe that nobody should possess nuclear weapons – except Israel.”
