On our weekly radio show last Sunday, I commented that the response from the U.S. and its Western allies to Russia’s launch of an actual war on terrorism in Syria has been largely silence, deafening silence, a bit like Netanyahu’s ‘silence spectacle’ at the UN recently, only even more deafening. So deafening in fact, that it came full circle and I began to hear something. Read More →
I can’t really comment in any informed way on societies in the East, except to point to the Chinese slave workers who produce mountains of plastic crap for Western nations to use and then dump in the ground and oceans; the Middle East’s role as a bombing target, ‘terrorist’ recruiting ground and civil war factory for Western warmongers, and South East Asia and Africa as a block of new ‘nations’ born out of the ‘white man’s burden’ to civilize their people via brutal colonization and then grant them ‘independence’ in the form of never-ending debt to Western banks.
In the West on the other hand, where I live, I can say with confidence that our modern society, its political and social conventions, customs and morality, has past it’s expiry date and is well and truly moribund. If I were a political or social cartoonist, the image would be a giant rotting corpse plastered in thick make up and doused in cheap perfume with a greedy banker’s hand up its ass making it move and talk to fool the public into thinking that they actually has a future worth living in.
Leading the cast in this tragicomedy (heavy on the tragi) we find our psychopathic leaders and their media whores trying extra hard to convince us that everything is just fine. But that smell, that stench of lies and the screaming contradiction between what they say and what we can all see (if we look) is making it increasingly hard to believe them, and even our own wishful thinking.

‘Marathon Monday’ will never be the same for Bostonians. The 117th Boston Marathon ended abruptly when two bombs went off in quick succession at 2.50 pm EST near the finish line on Boylston Street in downtown Boston. As of this writing, 3 people have been confirmed dead, 17 are critically wounded and another 176 have been treated for injuries. The bombs – spaced some 500 yards and 10 seconds apart – went off on the same side of the street, where many spectators had gathered to cheer runners on to the finish line.
Flying limbs and streets awash in blood from what were effectively anti-personnel bombs, designed to maximise trauma, are daily occurrences in countries occupied by the U.S. military, but such gruesome scenes aren’t usually seen on the streets of the ‘homeland’. Until now.
As the initial shock subsides to make way for an official narrative that will no doubt squeeze every ounce of political capital from this heinous deed, we want to point out some of the inconsistencies we’ve noticed thus far. Read More →
Ten years ago, more or less to the day, I wrote the following on the then Signs of the Times page:
“As I sit here, a motion in the UK House of commons has been defeated by some 415 votes to 149. Not that any other result would have stopped the US, yet it signifies a full green light for the attack on Iraq. Bush’s ‘ultimatum’ to Saddam expires at midnight (GMT) Thursday (7pm EST). “Shock and Awe” (read “death and destruction”) may come at any time between now and then. We have at most one day, one day left to ponder at the edge of the abyss before the coming darkness engulfs us all.
As if to mock those who are against this illegal invasion and the lies and deceit that have been used to justify it, Ari Fleishcer today stated that, even if Saddam went into exile now, the US would still invade. It’s not about WMD, it’s about domination and the destructive principle. Perhaps Ari feels he can be more truthful now that it is a ‘done deal’, now that Cheney, Rumsfeld and Blair have told the peace-loving people of the world to go f**k themselves. It must have been hard for Fleischer to stand up in front of the world’s media every day and lie so profusely. (Then again, maybe not).
It’s hard for me to describe the feelings I have right now; there is an enormous sense of impending doom, mixed with anger at being made to feel so helpless in the face of such rampant psychopathy. Who are these men that they can simply decide to throw the world and its inhabitants into “war without end”, and who are we that they could, for so long, fool us with such pathetic and barely-disguised lies and know that we would just roll over and let them get away with it?” Read More →
I’ve been reading James W. Douglas’ excellent book JFK and the Unspeakable: Why he died and why it matters. If you have time to read only one book on JFK, this is the one to pick. Douglas presents a detailed picture of Kennedy’s all-too-short time in office that leaves the reader in no doubt about how and why he was eventually killed, and who did it. In addition, it’s very well-written.
Douglas recounts that, during the summer of 1961, Kennedy was being harassed by the militant members (i.e. all) of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to approve the use of nuclear weapons on Laos and Berlin, against the ‘Communists’ (of course). After one meeting where the Joint Chiefs reiterated their psychopathic demands, Kennedy just walked out and, looking back at generals and admirals left in the Cabinet Room, said to an aide: “These people are crazy“.

How many Americans are aware that their government has claimed the authority to arbitrarily kill their fellow citizens when it chooses, and that it can do so ‘legally’, without any evidence that the citizen in question posed any threat to anyone, let alone the US government or its ‘interests’?
How many Americans are aware that the US government has responded to court cases brought by the ACLU questioning the US government’s authority to engage in targeted assassinations of US citizens by saying that this is a political question and that US courts and judges have no say in the matter (“There exists no appropriate judicial forum to evaluate these constitutional considerations“)? I’d wager not many. But that’s precisely what the US government has done, according to a leaked unsigned and undated Justice Department white paper, obtained by NBC News. You can read the white paper here. The actual legal justification as defined by Justice Department lawyers in 2010 is being kept secret by the government, but the ‘white paper’ explains that, not only has the government decided that targeted assassinations without due process are legal, but that no evidence of any imminent threat from a target is necessary for the target to be deemed an imminent threat. (Go figure). Read More →
Western governments (in league with their Middle Eastern client states) began their proxy war attack (via paid mercenaries aka ‘al-qaeda’) on Syria in 2011. The ongoing Syria campaign is just the latest in a long line of direct or indirect attempts at ‘regime change’ by the Western (and global) elite over the past 10 years (although their history of attacking and destabilizing and overthrowing sovereign governments goes back at least 100 years).
Each time I have commented on these illegal and inhuman invasions and proxy wars, I have pointed to the evidence that we are not, and never have been, dealing with a ‘popular revolution’ or a ‘civil war’ or a ‘terrorist threat’, but rather, always and everywhere with the age-old, tried and tested murderous tactics and outrageous lies of Western powers.
These type of ‘regime change’ operations include the use of several scurrilous, brutal and, frankly psychopathic tactics: Read More →
Six years ago I wrote an article: ‘The Capture, Trial and Conviction of Saddam Hussein – Another US Intelligence Farce‘ in which I presented pretty compelling evidence that the ‘Saddam Hussein’ that was tried and hanged in 2003-4 was not the real Saddam Hussein. It has long been accepted that Saddam used body doubles, so the idea that the US would have used one of these is not so far-fetched.
Recently, for some unknown reason, I found myself looking at images of Saddam and watching videos of his ‘trial’ and videos of interviews with him before he was allegedly captured. I invite you to listen to the voice of the person we know to be the real Saddam when he was interviewed in early 2003 by Tony Benn, and to the voice of the Saddam who was allegedly caught in 2003 by US troops when he was speaking at his show trial in 2004. And compare them.
One more interesting piece of evidence that I did not include in my original analysis is the apparent difference in the shape of the ears of the two men in question:
Western governments and the Western media would love for the entire world to believe that the recent (and ongoing) attacks on US embassies in the Middle East, and the killing of the US ambassador and 3 CIA agents in Libya, are motivated solely by the publication of a poorly made ‘film’ that had been doctored to ‘insult’ Islam and Mohammed. This narrative pitches Muslims in general as simple-minded fanatical barbarians, ungrateful for all that Western governments have done for them, and attempts to convince the average Westerner that the only thing Muslims understand is force.

Watch the following short BBC News report. It reveals a truth that has been kept hidden for many years now: that many of the ‘suicide bombings’ around the world in the last 15 years (or more) have been carried out by third parties in the way described in this video – forcing or duping a person into becoming an unwitting “suicide bomber”.
As we all now know, or should know, the ‘Free Syrian Army’ is made up of gangs of US, British and Israeli-backed Muslim mercenaries who are being paid to overthrow Assad for Western elite interests. Many of these mercenaries are long-term members of ‘al-Qaeda’, which is to say, ‘US, British and Israeli-backed Muslim mercenaries’
This tactic, known as the ‘proxy suicide bomb’ was actually invented by British intelligence back in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, and used in the British government’s war against the people of Northern Ireland, as revealed by this UK Observer article from 2006:
Henry McDonald, Ireland editor
Sunday September 10, 2006
The controversy over claims that Britain allowed two IRA informers to organise ‘human bomb’ attacks intensified this weekend.
A human rights watchdog has handed a report to the Police Service of Northern Ireland, which concludes that two British agents were central to the bombings of three army border installations in 1990. […]
The ‘human bomb’ tactic involved forcing civilians to drive vehicles laden with explosives into army checkpoints and included deadly sorties near Newry and Coshquin outside Derry. Six British soldiers and a civilian worker at an army base died in the simultaneous blasts on either side of Northern Ireland. […]
British Irish Rights Watch said: ‘This month BIRW sent a confidential report to the Historical Enquiries Team on the three incidents that occurred on 24th October 1990… at least two security force agents were involved in these bombings, and allegations have been made that the “human bomb” strategy was the brainchild of British intelligence.
The fact that the “proxy suicide bomb” was the brainchild of British intelligence puts a very different spin on the massive number of “suicide bombings” that have occurred in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria since American and British forces invaded those countries. These bombings, which number in the hundreds, are designed to have the very same effect in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria (and anywhere else Western elite interests are at stake) as in the UK, America or Spain (The September 11th 2001 attacks in New York and Washington, The London Tube bombings or the Madrid train bombings) – the creation of a population too traumatised to question the increasingly authoritarian dictates of their ‘leaders’, and a population cowed into believing that they need their leaders to protect them from ‘terrorists’. The real threat, as we have repeatedly pointed out, is a threat against which our leaders are completely powerless to protect us.
