The Shooting Down of Flight MH17: Cold War Tactics Redux

East Ukrainian rebels inspect the crash site of MH17

East Ukrainian rebels inspect the crash site of MH17

Is everyone enjoying the show? The ridiculously transparent attempt by the entire Western media and their political ‘elite’ masters to use the alleged shooting down of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 as part of their ‘asymmetric’ warfare against Russia and Vladimir Putin. Even the supposedly ‘leftist’ UK Guardian newspaper has been running headlines like World demands answers from Russia after Malaysia Airlines plane’s destruction over Ukraine and Hilary Clinton (wasn’t she fired?) wasted no time in declaring authoritatively that Russian rebels were responsible for the downing of the plane and that “Putin has gone too far”. Clinton’s statement clearly exposes her own and her former government’s complete lack of respect for due process, truth, and the extreme prejudice with which they both view the Russian Federation. It’s also clearly complete and utter BS because no one could possibly know who was responsible for the shooting down of Flight MH17 just a few hours after it fell out of the sky.

Then again, the US government never did let the facts get in the way of a good dose of propaganda, and to be fair, from the point of view of Clinton and her ilk, Putin has gone ‘too far’, but it has nothing to do with any Malaysian aircraft. Read more »

Israeli Government Behind The Kidnapping and Murder of Israeli Teens?

defending_IsraelWhile much of the public was being distracted by news reports of the score line in the Germany-Brazil World Cup game, another, admittedly less important, high-scoring ‘game’ was playing out in Israel/Palestine. While Brazil lost 7 to 1 to Germany, so far, Palestinians losses to Israel are running at 81-0, with no end to the carnage in sight.

A week ago I expressed my suspicions about the timing of the kidnapping and murder of the three Israelis teens. Since then, more details have come to light that confirm that the kidnapping was most likely a carefully orchestrated Israeli government propaganda campaign designed to destroy the Fatah/Hamas unity government, demomize the Palestinians as ‘terrorists’, and, as always, give the psychopaths in Tel Aviv another opportunity to blow Palestinian women and children to pieces.

Abducted Israeli Teenagers Found Dead – How Convenient (for Israel)

The 3 kidnapped and murdered Israeli teenagers

The 3 kidnapped and murdered Israeli teenagers

Ya gotta wonder…

About a month ago, a Fatah-Hamas unity government was sworn in. The Israelis warned/threatened the whole world not to recognize it because Israel has worked hard over the past 40 years to prevent any form of Palestinian unity from breaking out. But Netanyahu’s demands fell on deaf ears and several countries, along with the U.N., welcomed the development. Norway went as far as to ‘normalize relations’ with the new ‘interim government’.

Psycho ‘Reality Creators’ open ‘gates of hell’ in Iraq with proxy Jihadis

Jihadi tanks! What's next?!

Jihadi tanks! What’s next?!

In case you were wondering why, despite the sterling efforts of the Bush and Obama governments to bring ‘freedom and democracy’ to Iraq, life there appears to be worse than ever, a brief review of the nature of American and European largesse that has been bestowed on the Iraqi people over the past twenty-odd years may be instructive.

16 Ukrainian Soldiers Killed in Donetsk Region Ambush…Who Did It?

'We're the good guys!' - Ukrainian soldier hide from their own helicopters in Donetsk Province

‘We’re the good guys!’ – Ukrainian soldiers hide from their own helicopters in Donetsk Province

At least 16 Ukrainian troops were reportedly killed and over 30 injured in an attack on a military checkpoint in the Donetsk Region of Ukraine in the early hours of Thursday morning in the worst loss of life for Kiev forces to date. The question is, who did it?

Troops from Kiev are said to have arrived and established a check point outside the village of Blahodatne, near the town of Ol’hynka. The unofficial capital of the breakaway People’s Republic of Donetsk, Donetsk city, is just 40kms to the North. The check point was therefore probably a part of a wider effort by the US-coup-installed interim government in Kiev to use troops loyal to Kiev to control access to the major hubs of Eastern Ukraine in advance of the Presidential elections on Sunday.

As has been the case in many other Eastern Ukrainian towns and villages, the locals of Blagodatnoe confronted the Kiev troops as they arrived. At that point, things get murky. Read more »

A deal between devils: The neo-Nazi element and the U.S.’s proxy war in Ukraine

'Al Qaeda' in Ukraine? For decades, the US has relied on local or imported terrorist paramilitaries to win their 'proxy wars'. Ukraine's Right Sector is just the latest.

‘Al Qaeda’ in Ukraine? For decades, the US has relied on local or imported terrorist paramilitaries to win their ‘proxy wars’. Ukraine’s Right Sector is just the latest.

The US military hasn’t actually been involved in an overt “war”, in the traditional sense of a conflict between two mostly equally matched adversaries, since the end of the Korean war in 1953. As Col. Fletcher Prouty points out in his book JFK: The CIA, Vietnam, and the Plot to Assassinate John F. Kennedy, US soldiers in Vietnam were mainly fighting against 1 million North Vietnamese villagers who were ‘deported’ to the South (by the US Navy) where, like any dispossessed people, they resorted to theft to survive. These were the bulk of the ‘Viet Cong’ that the US military raped, tortured, napalmed and shot en masse. Every other US military and/or CIA ‘adventure’ from the 1960s until today (and there have been many) has involved one of the following three approaches: Read more »

Tilting at Pipelines: Geopolitical Madness at the end of Empire

putin-2.siRussian president Vladimir Putin recently sent a letter to 18 European countries that are consumers of Russian gas, telling them that, while Russia is eager to honor all of its energy commitments, the situation in Ukraine is getting to the “critical” point where supplies of Russian gas to Europe through Ukraine may be threatened. Speaking to reporters, Putin summed up the essence of what he wrote to his EU counterparts:

Russia is acting very neatly, very considerately and respectfully towards our partners. We will certainly guarantee in full the honoring of all our obligations to our European consumers. We are not the problem, the problem is ensuring transit via Ukraine …

Strange Coincidence? – Malaysian Airlines Plane Replica Stored at Ben Gurion Airport

By now you’ve probably heard about the “duplicate” Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-2H6ER.

Based on the data at Planespotters.net it appears that there is a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-2H6ER being stored at Tel Aviv airport.

The missing plane had a tail number of 9M-MRO. The one at Tel Aviv has tail number 9M-MRI.

"duplicate" Malaysia airlines plane now at Tel Aviv

“duplicate” Malaysia airlines plane now at Tel Aviv

Christopher Bollyn appears to have been the first to write about this latest “conspiracy”, suggesting that the plane at Tel Aviv is a “duplicate” that may be used at some point in the future to carry out a “terrorist attack” masquerading as the missing Malaysia airlines plane. But this is pure speculation.

At the beginning of 2013, Malaysia airlines had 17 active Boeing 777-2H6ERs, all “duplicates” of the missing one, save their tail numbers. Since then, 3 have been withdrawn, one way or another, from service.
In Jan. 2013 one, with tail number 9M-MRK, was withdrawn and is now stored at Orlando/Sanford International airport.In April 2013, the “Israeli” one was withdrawn, acquired by GA Telesis, an American-based second-hand planes/plane parts dealer, given a new tail number (N105GT), stored at Tarbes airport in France in October, and then moved to Ben Gurion airport in November.

In March 2014, the third was ‘withdrawn’ by some, as yet unknown, agent as it flew from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

I can understand, to some extent, that some people may get a little worked up at the fact that there is a Malaysia Airlines 777-2H6ER plane sitting in Israel, a country whose government and intelligence agencies have a history of involvement in “false flag” terror attacks, but to parlay this into a theory that the Israelis are going to use this plane to make the missing plane ‘reappear’ as part of a fake terror attack is a bit of a stretch, to say the least.

As noted, there is another “duplicate” plane sitting in Orlando. Maybe the US government is planning to use that one in a fake terror attack too? In addition, several Malaysia Airlines 777-2H6ERs were previously owned by other airlines, and all of the remaining 14 active service Malaysia Airlines 777-2H6ERs are scheduled to be withdrawn and replaced with newer aircraft.

So in a few years, there may be 14 “duplicates” of the missing plane sitting in hangars around the world, just waiting to be used, I suppose, in ill-conceived terror attacks to be blamed on Iran, Russia or… take your pick.

Meanwhile it appears that they just want this story to go away, declaring the plane officially ‘lost at sea’ somewhere in the vast expanse of the South Indian Ocean.

This has been an extraordinary episode in aviation history. While many planes have vanished out of thin air, none had so many passengers as MH370 and none were flying at a time everything is trackable and few things can be ‘lost’.

Unelected Ukrainian Government Creates ‘Facts on the Ground’ – No One Protests

The USA's unelected man in Ukraine signs deal with the EU

The USA’s unelected man in Ukraine signs a deal with the EU

I don’t understand the Ukrainian ‘revolution’.

Before the Ukrainian protests kicked off last October, a general election was scheduled for 2015.

As the protests grew and intensified, the elected Ukrainian president, Victor Yanukovych, agreed to bring elections forward to this year and to implement a host of measures, including reverting to the 2004 constitution, which drastically reduced Presidential power.

On paper, these changes met the vast majority of protestors’ demands, and promised a new government this year, via elections. Yet just as this agreement was being signed, the violence in Kiev flared and 100 people, including policemen, were shot dead…by someone.

The result was the appointment of a new president, a new prime minister and a new cabinet, with “ultra-nationalists” in many high-profile positions and in control of the army. None of these people were elected by the Ukrainian people, and the Prime Minister is the man named by US Asst. Sec. of State Victoria Nuland as the US choice for Prime Minister.

So while we are asked to believe that the goal of the protests in Ukraine was to bring an end to government corruption and unaccountability, bizarrely, they have resulted in a totally unelected and therefore unrepresentative Ukrainian government taking power. If I were Ukrainian, I’d be a little disappointed. I might even protest.

Admittedly, there are elections scheduled for May this year, and the current administration is only ‘interim’, yet the USA’s choice of ‘interim’ Prime Minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, appears to be establishing some ‘facts on the ground’ that are unlikely to be up for debate come May. For example, today he signed a deal with the EU, and talks with the IMF  and NATO, are in process. Again, if ‘democracy’ and the ‘will of the people’ were important to me, I’d be a little put out if I were Ukrainian.

So my question is; why, if the Ukrainian people are so determined to have ‘real Democracy’, are there no ‘people power’ protests in Ukraine over the fact that an unelected group of individuals, who were pushed into power by the US State Dept., are signing deals with the EU, the IMF and NATO in the name of the Ukrainian people? The whole things sounds a lot like a coup.

Imperial Hubris: Ukraine as a ‘regime change’ too far for the American Empire

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. He is the great and powerful OZ!

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. He is the great and powerful OZ!

All anti-imperialists that have been secretly longing for the day when the last great Empire of our ‘modern’ era would finally do what all the ‘best’ Empires have done – overextend itself in both reach and hubris for all to see and usher in its collapse – should be looking at the situation in Ukraine with hope and expectation.

Well, maybe I’m getting a little carried away there, but the US-Ukraine-Russia debacle does seem to be presenting ‘we the people’ with a rare opportunity to see the great American Empire as the monolithic edifice, composed largely of lies, propaganda, rhetoric, fear and public credulity that it is. There is, perhaps, a chance to see that the emperor really is naked, and that our overblown overlords and their “greatest democracy on earth” exist and persist only because we all believe their carefully crafted lies served up to us in the yellow journalism of the Empire’s fourth estate, the mainstream media.

As the empire fades and the hubris of its leaders increases however, it seems even those carefully crafted lies aren’t having the desired effect. This week, both Obama and John Kerry exposed America’s vaunted ‘exceptionalism’ as being based on exceptional dishonesty when they made statements about Russian intervention in Ukraine. The funny thing is, both Obama and Kerry were actually trying to do the opposite – present themselves as paragons of righteousness. Apparently the Neocons from whom they take their orders failed to mention to these two spokesmen for Empire that ‘chutzpah’ should never be pushed too far, lest you expose your unmitigated effrontery and impudence for all the world to see.
