For those interested in the topic, our interview with Gurdjieff historian William Patrick Patterson is available:
I have to say, I find it remarkable that a “random shooting” in a Jerusalem synagogue, which naturally would have contained mostly Israeli Jews, can produce a decidedly non-random death toll of one British and three American citizens, and no Israelis.
What are the odds, eh?
As Netanyahu said about 9/11:
“It’s very good. […] Well, not very good, but it will generate immediate sympathy [for Israel].”
And then again in 2008:
“We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq,” Ma’ariv quoted the former prime minister as saying. He reportedly added that these events “swung American public opinion in our favor.”
When pondering the genesis of modern wars, both big and small, and who is responsible, it’s useful to look to the source of the instruments of war, because after all, without them, having a nice war would be difficult, unless soldiers were willing to go back to hand to hand combat.
7 of the top 10 arms manufacturers, who produce and sell 60% of all weapons, are US companies, the other three are European. The other 40% is also dominated by US, European and Israeli companies.
Where does “ISIL” get its weapons from? Well, everybody knows that! Saudis Arabia and Qatar, it has even been reported by the mainstream media!
But there’s a small detail that is always left out of such Western media reports; neither Saudi Arabia nor Qatar (or any other corrupt Gulf monarchy) have significant weapons industries. Both buy the vast majority of their weapons from…you guessed it! the USA!
So I hope everyone understands that the US government is, indirectly via gulf states, arming ISIL and then going to war to ‘disarm’ them of the weapons they sent to them and left for them in Iraq… and then selling more weapons to them…and on it goes.
War is, and always has been, a racket, designed to do three main things:
- make money for the ‘elite’
- expand empire
- keep the population afraid and therefore supportive of their warmongering ‘elite’ masters
Today, Canada began bombing Iraq and Syria, justified in large part by a ‘terror attack’ the official narrative for which is falling apart. I’ve written previously about the suspicious background to the attacks in Ottawa and another city near Montreal a few weeks ago, but new details have emerged that pose serious questions about the official narrative surrounding the Ottawa war memorial and parliament shooting by Michael Zehaf-Bibeau.

Events in the world of ‘high politics’ over the last week have been very revealing, and entertaining. The US-Israel ‘special relationship’ has, apparently, been souring for a while. Read more »Share
Three weeks ago, on October 3rd, Canadian PM Stephen Harper’s Conservative party narrowly passed a motion to “launch combat missions” in Iraq alongside other Western warmongering nations and their clients in the Middle East. The motion was passed (157 for to134 against) despite stiff opposition from the NDP and Liberal opposition parties and a Canadian public traditionally averse to any kind of foreign military campaigns. On the day of the vote, an online poll showed almost 60% of respondents were against Canada joining the ‘coalition’.
NDP opposition leader Tom Mulcair said that the Harper government was “plunging Canada into a prolonged war without a credible plan” and that bombing ISIS “will only create more recruits for ISIS and can, in fact, prove to be disastrously counterproductive”. On Monday, former prime minister Jean Chretien again criticized Canada’s military involvement in Iraq saying that it was “just the latest in a long history of interventions by western countries that have left “scars” on the Middle East” and that “Canada should be putting its emphasis on humanitarian assistance for the refugees in the region.” Read more »Share
Did a short Press TV interview on comments made by Asst. Sec. of State Victoria Nuland in Berlin on Russian ‘violation’ of Ukrainian sovereigntyShare
When the first ISILTM ‘beheading’ video was released I was immediately struck by how utterly counter-productive it was for the ‘Islamic State’ to produce a glossy, high-definition video of the event and make it available to Western audiences. If the goal of such a dubious PR campaign was to intimidate the anglo-American Empire into backing off from attacking the alleged Levantine ‘rebels’, then it failed miserably.
What’s most amazing however is that the IS leadership were unable to foresee that lopping the heads off US and UK citizens and producing a made for TV video of the gruesome spectacle would simply gift the anglo-American Empire builders with the justification to launch a bombing campaign against the video makers. I mean, how politically ignorant do you have to be to not realise that? Did they learn nothing from the 9/11 attacks? Western civilian casualties are the US military industrial complex’s bread and butter! They use Western civilian casualties of Arab terrorism to justify the invasion and occupation of the Arab countries that the erstwhile Arab terrorists are trying to rid of US occupation!
