UK Nuclear Weapons Components and Arms Sales Under Question

6 January, 2014 22:33 PUBLISED TO NUCLEAR SAFETY

Recent news that the United Kingdom may in fact be arming or assisting in weapons deliveries to Somali pirates should be of great concern not only to the companies and individuals who have paid millions upon millions of dollars to the pirates to secure the release of ships, cargoes and crews, but also to all of the governments, including that of the Russian Federation, that have also spent millions and risked lives while engaged in anti-piracy missions in the Gulf of Aden and other pirate-infested waters off the coast of Africa and Somalia.

The UK's Independent, a publication which has regularly published articles and information shedding a less than positive light on the dealings of the UK Government, recently reported that in a 15 month period, between April 2012 and June 2013, over 44,000 guns of various types were sent to "tackle piracy in East Africa".

Although officially the weapons were supposed to be used by security firms the sheer number of fresh weapons exported by the UK during the period in question raised the alarm among members of the House of Commons Arms Export Controls Committee especially in light of the fact that the firms in question already have thousands of weapons in their armories. Surely it is suspicious and call for concern why these firms which have been operating at full force would all of a sudden need to escalate the level of their already adequate arsenals with the addition of 30,000 assault rifles, 11,000 rifles and 2,536 pistols.

Members of the committee are right to voice concern especially given the light that the scourge of piracy has all but been eliminated and that the weapons could be destined to the pirates themselves or to other regimes in Africa and perhaps even the Middle East where ongoing violence is taking place.

According to the Independent Ann McKechin, a committee member said: "The evidence provided to us by Mr. Bell seems to suggest that the department did not have a process of looking at the cumulative number of weapons and whether those exports fitted the scenario on the ground needed for protection."

Unfortunately for those profiting from weapons deals the latest enquiry is only part of a wider inquiry into arms exports from the UK which the Independent continues has already attempted to force the UK's recalcitrant Business Secretary Vince Cable into publicly revealing the names of British companies who were given licenses to export items to Syria that could be used to make chemical weapons, something he continues to refuse to do.

Given the record of US/UK/NATO in the Middle East and Africa and the propensity for continuing and escalating conflicts in order to further expand militarily and maintain the profit margins of their military industrial complexes and self-serving desire to stay relevant while justifying their over-bloated military budgets, it is very reasonable to question whether so many weapons are needed, not in fact to maintain "security", but to continue to have a well armed "enemy" thus justifying their own expansion and existence, something particularly true of NATO which has arrogated unto itself authority to operate almost worldwide.

NATO may be meddling in the region, as the African coast is nowhere near the North Atlantic, but anti-piracy concerns and missions have in fact been supported by a wide range of countries that may in other areas be at odds against each other.

The Russian Federation's mission which began in 2008 has been one of the most successful in the Gulf of Aden and off the Horn of Africa with deployments by such sleek and deadly craft as the Udaloy I class anti-submarine destroyer Severomorsk and other flagships of the Russian Navy successfully freeing hostages, capturing and liquidating pirates and escorting over 800 commercial vessels and convoys through the dangerous waters off the Somali coast without a single loss of life.

Thanks to Russia's patrols and increased security 2013 saw piracy in the region almost completely eliminated. Currently over 60% of all vessels have armed guards onboard and travel through the pirate infested waters at higher cruising speeds making them much harder to catch and board, as does razor wire, high-pressure hoses and secure areas on ships from which crews can wait out an attack and call for assistance.

In 2012 the economic loss to piracy off of Somalia was calculated at being about $18 billion annually but that figure has dropped to a negligible amount as have the number of attacks, boardings and hostages taking situations. All of which begs the question: why the 44,000 guns?

When we look at the UK's record regarding arms sales and in particular those to regimes and states with questionable records in the sphere of human rights, then the 44,000 guns does not seem that bad. In July of 2013 the Independent also published a damning article titled "Blood Money: UK's £12.3bn arms sales to repressive states" in which details were given regarding questionable arms and technology deals.

The US and the UK have a long and bloody track record of profiting from war and from weapons sales, with UK lawmakers sounding the alarm multiple times in recent years regarding the supply of weapons, include components for nuclear bombs that have been delivered to questionable regimes and countries with poor human rights records.

Multiple sources support the Independent which claims the UK had over 3,000 export licenses for military and intelligence equipment worth a total of £12.3bn for 2013. The UK's Mirror reported in October that: "Nuclear weapon chemicals, CS gas, bomb parts, grenades and guns are included in 5,000 controlled product licenses granted since 2010. Other orders of note include one from Egypt for 1,900 assault rifles and combat shotguns, Deuterium compounds which are used in nuclear weapons for Saudi Arabia.

So while the US/UK are dictating to the world about democracy and human rights and "rogue nations" the hypocrisy or the UK is stunning when one takes into account that of the 27 countries on the UK Foreign Office's (FCO) own list of countries where they deem there are human rights concerns, only 2 of them are not beneficiaries of UK weapons export licenses.

Countries that have been demonized and against which the drums of war have been often beaten but who the UK is arming include: Afghanistan, Bahrain, Columbia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Libya, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Zimbabwe and other countries where there is open armed conflict.

Of course it is naïve to believe that weapons are actually only sold to countries that deserve them or are worthy. With the record of US/UK creation and support of groups like Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood this should be clear. However it is particularly dirty when these same forces are used to begin and foment conditions or pretexts for invasions which do nothing but slaughter innocent civilian populations. OF course for the weapons manufacturers and the war profiteers this means nothing, the only concern is maintaining their profit growth and their own bottom lines.

Sky News reports that the UK actually sold materials to Syria that could have been used to make chemical weapons, with the Commons Committees on Arms Export Controls (CAEC) citing that as one example of questionable deals being carried out by UK contractors and countries on the (FCO) list.  

The world community should rightfully be concerned about 44,000 guns which may have "fallen" into the hands of Somali pirates, but it should be more concerned about nuclear bomb components that may have been delivered to Saudi Arabia and ingredients for chemical weapons that may have fallen into the hands of the Syrian "rebels" who the West is so found of arming and supporting and who have been guilty of some of the most horrendous acts of blood thirsty violence in recent world history.

Fallujah falls to Al Qaeda, veterans question illegal Iraq war

8 January, 2014 18:21  http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Iraq.html

With the fall of Fallujah to Al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, many veterans of the Iraq war and the massive fighting that took place in Fallujah during the US occupation are beginning to realize that their sacrifice and the ultimate sacrifice paid by many of their comrades was completely and totally for nothing, and for many veterans that is a truly hard pill to swallow.

The fall of Fallujah and the fact that Al-Qaeda linked terrorists and murderous Sunni radicals now control the Anbar province where Fallujah is located and where approximately 1,500 US troops lost their lives during the Iraq war further underlines the complete and total failure of an illegal aggressive war based on complete and total lies and might also cause those who served their country and killed what are reported to be as many as one million Iraqis to finally wake up and realize that they were simply callously used. The fact that CIA-created-Al-Qaeda was never allowed to operate and had no presence in Iraq under Saddam Hussein only further brings to question what the US was really doing in Iraq and why the US-installed-puppet-government has done almost nothing to stop Al-Qaeda from taking over massive parts of the country. It is also of interest to note that US forces are being prevented from fighting Al-Qaeda elements. 

Illegal Oil Petro-Dollar War

The hard and cold fact that US veterans and Americans must come to terms with is the elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about but one whose emanations are now visible every time every American goes to the gas pump and forks over a fortune they could rather spend on food or clothing or on their children’s education to put a little fuel in their cars as they prepare to sit in endless traffic jams burning up millions of gallons of fuel attempting to get to their poorly paid insecure jobs to continue to vicious cycle.

It was determined by those holding the real power in the US, the criminal, oil and banking elites that Saddam Hussein had to go because less than 24 hours before the invasion Hussein had made the sovereign decision to change the oil trade to the Euro, something that was also done by Muammar Gaddafi right before his country was wiped out.

As with the illegal US/NATO war on Libya, which for all intents and purposes was simply the providing of air-support for Al-Qaeda and all of their sub-groupings, the US was also in bed with Al-Qaeda and Sunni/Wahabist/Falafist radical elements in Iraq for the purpose of toppling the government in order to maintain the flow of oil but more importantly to continue the oil trade in the dollar. As with Libya, a country that the tribal groups say is now almost completely “owned” by Al-Qaeda groups, it is very convenient and profitable to extract oil and resources from warlords and fiefdoms than it is from legitimate governments who might seek to protect their own interests.

The war in Iraq was a war for oil and greed and to prevent the collapse of the US petro-dollar. Without the oil trade the US dollar is a completely worthless paper based currency with nothing to back it. This should be alarming to veterans and all Americans alike but what should be more alarming is that the oil companies and the banksters that Iraq veterans went and killed and died for are also raping Americans at the pump every time they go to put some fuel in their vehicles.

US soldiers take an oath to protect the Constitution of the United States of America so it should be particularly disturbing for all members of the US armed forces that they risked their lives and engaged in an illegal aggressive war to protect not the Constitution and not even the American people (who were never threatened by Iraq) but to protect the profit margins of big oil and big money and those who have quite literally cancelled the US Constitution and relegated it to a paper shredder.

US Iraq War Lies

The illegal aggressive war (a crime against humanity) on Iraq was one based on lie after lie. There were no weapons of mass destruction, there was no tie to 9-11, Hussein was not supporting or in collusion with Al-Qaeda (unlike the US) and Iraq never once threatened the United States. Even the reason for executing the leader of Iraq, Saddam Hussein as it turned out was also a lie, there was no hard evidence presented to the world community that he gassed Kurds, but will the US ever pay a price for executing the leader of a sovereign nation? For that is what happened, the US installed a government and under their control the president was executed in a show trial that had taken place in a their own kangaroo court.

In 2004 a committee in the US House of Representatives identified “237 misleading statements about the threat posed by Iraq that were made by President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Secretary Rumsfeld, Secretary Powell, and National Security Advisor Rice. These statements were made in 125 separate appearances, consisting of 40 speeches, 26 press conferences and briefings, 53 interviews, 4 written statements, and 2 congressional testimonies.” According to the committee, at least 61 separate statements “misrepresented Iraq’s ties to al-Qaeda.” These finding were backed up by another committee in 2006.

It was based on these lies that American forces were ordered to fight and die in an illegal act of aggressive war and the people who promoted the lies will never be prosecuted or forced to account for the bloodshed and loss of over 4,500 American lives in Iraq, not to mention the approximately 1 million Iraqis.

The Rise of Sectarian Violence

To fully understand the situation in Iraq and throughout the Middle East one must first understand the true nature of the “sectarian violence”, something which did not exist in Iraq under Hussein. A fact that might also be said of Afghanistan and US collusion with the Taliban, of Bahrain, of Yemen, of Libya under Muammar Gaddafi, of Syria until tens of thousands of homicidal mostly Sunni Islamist mercenaries and terrorists were imported into the country and other countries in the region. One must also understand the true nature of Al-Qaeda (the CIA terrorist data-base) and the alliances that exist between Israel, Saudi, the US and finally Al-Qaeda.

In Iraq the US supported and armed the Sunni Sahwa (Awakening) movement to overthrow Hussein and in Syria the US and its “allies” supported the same Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant that has now brought their amassed weapons and homicidal madness in force to Iraq to take over Anbar province and Fallujah.

The forces that the US has used to advance their geopolitical agenda in the region (largely Sunni), to overthrow legitimate governments and take over resource rich and strategic areas have their own agenda. One which is the fanatical blood thirsty elimination and genocide of all brands of Islam which they deem to be unworthy and the other is their own rise to power. These fanatical Islamic barbarians have no interest in advancing US positions and have no qualms about killing Americans, but they do need Saudi and US backing to supply them with weapons, funding, training and in the case of Libya and almost in Syria, air and military support.

Hidden Agenda in Iraq and the Rise of Al-Qaeda

With regard to Iraq, the US-installed-puppet-government has shown that they have their own mostly hidden radical Sunni agenda, something unheard of during Hussein’s rule when Sunnis and Shias intermarried and shared an absolutely normal and peaceful coexistence. Their calls for the civilian population to expel Al-Qaeda from Fallujah also underlines their complete ineptness or their collusion with Al-Qaeda

Here it is important to note that Al-Qaeda (the umbrella Sunni proponent), which according to Saudi Prince Bandar himself is under the control of Saudi, as are Chechen terrorists and almost all of the groups operating in Syria, including the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and the Al-Nusra Front, has been allowed to take root in Iraq and in Fallujah, which became the Al-Qaeda base (the base of the base if you will), after the US surge. Again under Hussein there was no Al-Qaeda presence whatsoever in Iraq.

As with Afghanistan the US has failed. Their complete lack of vision, advanced planning and an obtuse overall policy of the ends-justifying-the-means, has led to what we see today. Homicidal US founded Al-Qaeda extremist Sharia toting elements taking over Libya, soon Afghanistan, Iraq and scores of other countries and areas in the Middle East.

With CIA agent Tom Ossman (Osama Bin Laden) gone, the Frankenstein monster of Al-Qaeda, that the US created in Afghanistan to fight the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (that had been asked to intervene and save the Socialist Government and maintain peace), Al-Qaeda may no longer be even remotely under US control, they are becoming a power unto themselves and if the world ever wants to see peace in the Middle East. Real peace, not some US compliant subservient “peace”, these radical Al-Qaeda elements must be stopped and the US must not be allowed to meddle any longer in a region they have broken but refuse to admit: they have bought.

Media Note

The Pentagon has been silent about the fall of Fallujah and the subservient US media is now more than ever clearly in complicity. One has to do nothing more than look at the headlines on news outlets such as Fox News, where they are now calling “the evil Al-Qaeda terrorists who staged 9-11” simply “militants”, “rebels”.

Fracking: Champagne for the elites, death for the people

10 January, 22:49   http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Fracking.html

There are so many serious issues concerning the spread of induced hydraulic fracturing or hydrofracturing (fracking) and so many reasons why it should be stopped completely or strictly regulated as more and more becomes known regarding the long-term impact on the planet and so much false propaganda being spread about the practice that it is difficult to choose where to begin attempting to formulate an intelligent presentation of the issue. However the long term dangers are so great to the international community and out very planet that the issue must be looked at at the highest levels and a moratorium if not an all out ban on the process must be implemented.

Corporate Destruction of the Planet

Let us start by being frank the bottom line in the fracking debate was best summed by a corporate executive whose company is making billions from fracking, he said there is gas there and we need it. In other words nothing else matters as long as there is a profit to be made.

The huge US multi-national corporations involved in oil, energy and resource extraction have a long and black record when it comes to protecting the people of the world and the planet. From the Gulf Oil Spill to the Bhopal disaster, the release of a mind-boggling plethora of toxic and deadly chemicals into the global environment (a list too long to detail here), the destruction of seas and forests and the egregious practice of moving dirty industries to unregulated countries (among top issues) all have proven that the corporations are interested in one thing and one thing only: maintaining their bottom line.

Halliburton, Cheney and convenient exemptions

It is not a secret that these corporations will do anything to make profits and when we look at the records of the players and who they are the truth becomes even clearer. A case in point is Halliburton, the company run by ex-US Vice President Dick Cheney, the snarling neo-conservative architect of the Bush wars and a man who (it was revealed by the release of the infamous torture memos) personally developed and signed off on torture techniques such as “puncturing an eye” and “slicing a testicle”.

Fracking profiteers Halliburton, Baker Hughes and Shlumberger were revealed to be the subjects of a U.S. Justice Department federal antitrust probe initiated against the $36 billion a year fracturing industry this past summer. It was reported that documents were being sought however the current state of the action is unclear.

Halliburton, with the coming to power of its “former” chairman Richard “Dick” Cheney was one of the biggest beneficiaries of the War on Terror, the invasion of Iraq and the entire indefinite-detention-torture-paradigm. The company is one of the top war profiteers on the planet and also heavily involved in oil field support operations and resource exploitation, including fracking.

So it is no coincidence that during the Bush/Cheney occupation of the White House fracking was exempted from major EPA regulation. The US Government’s Energy Policy Act of 2005 was written with a provision that benefits fracking profiteers and is now known as the "Halliburton Loophole". The provision allows Halliburton and others to be exempt from many of the requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act.

Responsible Government?

It is no secret that the US Government has been (quite literally) taken over by corporations and special interests willing to spend billions on lobbying and “greasing the wheels” and corporations involved in fracking spent a mind-boggling $726 million dollars on lobbying from 2001-2011.

With the inherent dangers of fracking one has to question whose interests the government is supposed to be protecting and it is clear in this case that the interests of the people and the environment fall far behind to the interests of the entrenched US corporations.

What Exactly is Fracking?

Fracking is controversial but what exactly is it? Hydraulic fracturing is the process of extracting gases by fracturing rock using a pressurized liquid mixture which cracks or “fractures” the rock. Some hydraulic fractures form naturally, for example certain veins or dikes.

With induced hydraulic fracturing a bore is drilled vertically to the desired depth, then turns ninety degrees to the horizontally and continues for several thousand feet (going thousands of feet deeper than traditional natural gas wells) into the shale containing the trapped natural gas.

When the bore or “well” is complete a mixture; usually water, sand and various chemicals, is injected at high pressure into the bore to create small fissures which are typically less than 1mm in size through which the gas can escape.

Fracking requires between two and eight million (Yes, million!) gallons of local freshwater per well which is over a 100 times more than what is required using traditional extraction methods. This water is permanently contaminated when it is mixed into the "fracking fluid". This mix is a virtual cocktail of toxic chemicals and while corporations such as Halliburton refuse to disclose the exact chemicals used, saying the information is “proprietary”, studies have shown the fluid contains: acetic acids, boric acids, citric acids, ethylene glycol, formaldehyde, hydrochloric acid, lead, mercury, methanol, radium, uranium and other deadly chemical contaminants, many of which would kill a human being in the minutest amount.

After the rock is fractured hydraulic pressure is removed from the well, then small grains of proppant (sand or aluminium oxide) hold the fractures open. The technique is very common in wells for shale gas, tight gas, tight oil, and coal seam gas and hard rock wells. The natural gas then escapes through the fissures and is drawn back up the well to the surface, where it is processed, refined, and shipped to market.

It is claimed that the wastewater returns to the surface after the fracking process is completed. Reportedly it is contained in steel tanks until it can be stored long-term by deep injection in oil and gas waste wells.

Benefits of Fracking

Proponents of hydraulic fracturing say there is about a 100 year supply of formerly inaccessible hydrocarbons in the US which can be extracted by fracking. However this amount has not been proven.

Dangers of Fracking

Opponents to fracking cite the environmental effects, including the permanent contamination of vast amounts of ground water, the depletion of fresh water reserves, air and noise pollution, the return and leakage of gases and hydraulic fracturing chemicals to the surface which then enter the atmosphere are carried by winds and poison water supplies, land and everything they come in contact with and can be passed to humans through livestock and the like. Again for one single fracking operation between two and eight million gallons of freshwater are required. Water which then has to be completely contained and isolated from humans. Although self-interested corporations might claim the deadly mixture is contained, there is no way to guarantee that seepage into the earth will not occur.

Disingenuous Arguments

US proponents of fracking love to jump on the “energy independence” and “economic benefits” band-wagon but all of these arguments are ludicrous when one considers the wasteland that is created by the process, the dangers to health and the massive amount of freshwater that is contaminated forever. All arguments about “energy independence” and are also completely ridiculous and absolutely annulled when you consider these corporations will never even consider promoting energy independence through renewable and alternative energy resources. They have one goal: making money the only obtuse way they know how.

The 100 year “golden age of gas” is a fallacy, this meaning one where the US is energy independent and produces enough gas to export. Any attempt at such will surely lead to 100 years of completely raping and destroying the environment for future generations.

Alternative Fuels

The idiocy of American corporations and those claiming fossil fuels are the only source of energy available cannot be overstated or exaggerated, especially given the fact that we know that workable electric cars and alternative sources of safe renewable energy have existed for decades. But of course economies and corporations making billions and based on fossil fuel trade do not want these facts to be known. Alternative fuels include everything from solar energy to vegetable oil.

Protests

Protests against fracking are growing larger and more frequent as the public becomes aware of the dangers. However those in power who are obviously catering to the interests of large corporations, such as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, choose to ignore the concerns of the public and their constituents.

Recently over a thousand protestors took part in an anti-fracking demonstration in Empire State Plaza in Albany, New York the capital of New York state, during the State of the State address. Governor Andrew Cuomo however chose not to mention fracking during his speech nor to address the concerns of the thousands gathered outside.

According to RT one of the protestors said his reason for being against fracking was the “Air contamination, high levels of radiation, earthquakes,” and that it is an incredibly dirty form of extreme energy extraction that cannot have any place in New York state. Another protestor citing the fact that “Water is non-renewable.”

Brainwashing the Children

How would Walt Disney feel if he knew that his life’s work and everything he worked for to bring hope and joy and wonderment to children was turned into a propaganda tool for corporations like Halliburton. Well that is exactly what happened.

Al-Jazeera America reported on January 8th that: “An educational program funded by Ohio’s oil and gas industry and sponsored by Radio Disney has environmental activists — and some parents — up in arms over what they say is a hijacking of public education by hydraulic fracturing (fracking) interests, in a state sitting on billions of dollars’ worth of gas-rich shale.”

They also updated their article on the 9th to include:”Disney emailed a statement to Al Jazeera, saying the company has pulled out of the remaining installments of the Rocking Ohio tour. ‘The sole intent of the collaboration between Radio Disney and the nonprofit Rocking in Ohio educational initiative was to foster kids' interest in science and technology. Having been inadvertently drawn into a debate that has no connection with this goal, Radio Disney has decided to withdraw from the few remaining installments of the program,’ the statement read.”

All is well that ends well perhaps but the fact that energy companies are now targeting children to spread their pro-fracking and dangerous agendas is extremely disturbing to say the least and the fact that the US Government would allow such corporate propaganda is also disturbing. Clearly the attempt to brain-wash the next generation so as to reduce to a minimum protests to corporate long-term strategy.

This brain-washing of children in America is not isolated to energy corporations. We have seen how children, almost any of whom would normally say “yuck” if you told them about to men having “relations” are anesthetized to believe that things like “single-sex-marriages” are normal. Something Russia has protected children from and for which the West has no end of qualms about.

Truly these matters are a damning and very sad statement on a society that has decimated its educational system in order to appease corporations and begun to privatize education, even at the elementary school level, to allow for profits to be made.

Publicity stunts

The fracking companies themselves shave been engaged in publicity stunts themselves and such events would be better ignored except for their ridiculousness. For example at the annual Quebec Oil and Gas Association meeting in Montreal at the end of October of last year. Top Halliburton executives including Halliburton Canada vice-president John Gorman and others claimed that they were drinking “frack fluid” from champagne bottles. Although no independent analysis was carried out as to what in fact they were drinking.

The Halliburton exec claimed they only had to replace a few chemicals with some food additives, however it is seriously doubtful that they were really drinking water laced with mercury, uranium, radium, lead, ethylene glycol, formaldehyde, hydrochloric acid or any of the other chemicals that could instantly kill a horse.

Halliburton loves such stunts according to the Financial Post. “In 2011 Halliburton CEO Dave Lesar asked one of his executives to take a sip of the fluid during a presentation in front of industry executives. Critics wondered why the CEO did not drink it himself.”

Non-disclosure Bribes and Corporate Secrecy

The way that Halliburton and these corporations subvert and manipulate the law in order to get away with murder is something that is almost unbelievable in modern times. But these corporations have been successful in silencing everyone from medical personnel to activists by bribing, terrorizing and tricking into signing “non-disclosure” agreements.

According to Bloomberg: “… in Pennsylvania Range Resources Corp and two other companies agreed to a $750,000 settlement in a fracking suit requiring the plaintiff’s not to tell anyone, according to court filings. In cases from Wyoming to Arkansas, Pennsylvania to Texas, (Bloomberg continues) drillers have agreed to cash settlements or property buyouts with people who say hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, ruined their water, according to a review by Bloomberg News of hundreds of regulatory and legal filings. In most cases homeowners must agree to keep quiet.The strategy keeps data from regulators, policymakers, the news media and health researchers, and makes it difficult to challenge the industry’s claim that fracking has never tainted anyone’s water.”

According to Truth Out one Pennsylvania family began suffering from headaches, nosebleeds, burning eyes and sore throats as drilling operations expanded on their land and in their neighborhood. The family ended up filing a lawsuit in 2010 and abandoning their home and eventually won their case in a hearing which was closed to the press and during which the gas companies persuaded a judge to permanently seal the case from public view.

What can be done?

As long as the government is being controlled by corporations and lobbyists continue to offer mountains of lucre to politicians and regulators to “look the other way” not much. However I would like to finish with one of my favorite quotes stated in 1964 by an activist named Mario Savio in Berkeley: “There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious — makes you so sick at heart — that you can’t take part. You can’t even passively take part. And you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop. And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you’re free, the machine will be prevented from working at all.”

Coming soon the 100 year total destruction of the environment. Brought to you from the people who brought you the Iraq war and $4.00 a gallon gas prices.

Terrorist Joe Smith: trained in Syria, returning to America says FBI - John Robles

14 January, 12:25   http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Terror_ISIS_CIA.html

The director of the FBI recently cited Americans recruited by Al-Qaeda in Syria as the next terrorist threat to America. However with the almost 13 years of meddling in the Middle East, the dozens of revelations of US and CIA involvement with Al-Qaeda in places such as Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt and the fact that there has not been a single clear terrorist attack in the US since 9-11, there appears to be a credibility gap that is growing by the day. Is the threat real? Or is it just another attempt to keep people in fear and allow for more funds to be diverted to those who are profiting from the endless war on terror?

The entire US-government-military-industrial-complex-surveillance-security/police-state is dependent on one thing for continuity. One single thing that has allowed it to grow and completely take over the country, dispose of the constitution and drag the world into war after war, that one thing is terrorism. So now whenever you hear a US Government official talking about the threat of terrorism, you can be sure that they need more of your tax dollars to further inflate their budgets, are planning more wars and/or are stripping away more of your rights and want you to continue to live in fear.

From funding, backing, training and arming Al-Qaeda in multiple theaters since the creation of Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan (when Osama Bin Laden was recruited by the CIA to fight the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics after the USSR was asked to play a peace-keeping role in the country by the then Socialist Afghan Government) to the same support of Al-Qaeda affiliated groups in Syria, the US has almost lost all credibility and believability when it comes to fighting their “War on Terror” and the uncovering of the “threat of the week”.

In Syria Al-Qaeda was rebranded in the same way Osama Bin Laden was renamed “Tom Ossman” and given various names including the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Now without the previously scheduled Libyan style open US/NATO support that they were expecting to help them finish off what they started in Syria the groups of fanatical homicidal mercenaries waving the black flag of bloody Islamic fanaticism have begun slaughtering each other in the thousands. Well and good but where does that leave the US?

Robbed of their aggressive war on Syria and without a single clear terrorist attack on the United States since the questionable events of 9-11-01, the “War on Terror” dependent US Government is growing more and more desperate to continue to justify the entire “age of terrorism” paradigm and continues to build straw man terrorists out of anything they can.

The latest “terrorist threat to America” is not some Sunni-Wahabist-Salafist-Sharia-homicidal-fanatic but, according to FBI Director James Comey, the danger is now from Americans who are recruited by Al-Qaeda, particularly in Syria. This may mean that all of the Americans in Syria who are engaged in “covert operations” against Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, are now no longer needed and the FBI is in damage control mode, but that is another story.

Press TV quotes the FBI director as having said: “People, including Americans, can go to Syria and learn about dangerous techniques, and it's easy to get in and get out. My concern is that people can go to Syria, develop new relationships, learn new techniques and become far more dangerous, and then flow back to the US.”

Statements relating to Americans recruited by and trained in Syria by the same insurgents that a few months ago the US was backing and arming seem odd to say the least. Coming from the Director of the FBI of course they must be believed by the masses but in reality such statements are a clear condemnation of everything the US has supposedly been doing to stop terrorism. It is a clear condemnation of any action against the Government of President Assad as well since it is Al-Qaeda which is fighting the Assad Government for US/NATO. What is more vague statements and the identification of Americans overseas as a terrorist only goes to shopw the complete failure of the entire “War on Terror” and the hyper security state.

Such a statement from the head of the FBI is also almost an open admission of failure. However as I said earlier, the redeeming factor for the FBI is that it will allow for more funds and more “security”.

Sure there might have been about 70 Americans who have gone to Syria or tried to go there to fight the Syrian government and at least 1,200 Europeans but does this mean they are a threat to the US? Possibly, Washington is worried that al-Qaeda-linked groups might have recruited and trained Americans who have gone to Syria in order to get them to carry out attacks when they return to the US. Sounds plausible but what is more probable is that due to cancellation of the invasion on Syria, the US is left with hundreds (if not thousands) of Al-Qaeda “fighters” who are ready and primed for war but who are quite frankly now robbed of the spoils they had been promised.

Does it really matter who the threat is? Yes it does. In this case the US saying the threat is from Americans recruited by Al-Qaeda will allow internal US security bodies to further escalate the terror hysteria and raise their budgets.

Press TV reports that a US intelligence official said:“We know al-Qaeda is using Syria to identify individuals they can recruit, provide them additional indoctrination so they’re further radicalized, and leverage them into future soldiers, possibly in the US.”

After 12 years of the non-stop war and meddling in the Muslim world, it is not surprising that there may be fanatical terrorists who are now ready to attack the United States, however I would argue that the threat is not from Americans trained by Al-Qaeda, but from Al-Qaeda itself, if such a “database” really exists.

Police Salaries: Reason US/NATO Must Obtusely Occupy Afghanistan? - By John Robles

16 January, 23:20   http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Afghanistan.html

Due to clerical errors in filing the proper documents, something which exists in all governments at one time or the other, some police in Afghanistan have not received their salaries since November. The Afghan authorities have reported that the issue is being taken care of and that Afghanistan’s law enforcement personnel will be receiving their full salaries and back pay soon. Those are the facts but of course the US/NATO occupiers have to twist them to meet their own ends.

The narrative again is as old and tired as the hills as US/NATO continue to use the same arguments and propaganda to attempt to stay relevant and put forward an acceptable and believable argument to continue their occupation of Afghanistan, a country they invaded, decimated, occupied and were never wanted in, in the first place. Again the western media is full of statements and reports that the Afghan people are inept, corrupt, incompetent, ignorant and apparently cannot even pay out meager salaries to police despite the “generosity” of the occupiers.

One of the favorite tactics for justifying military occupations, interventions and the subversion of foreign governments by the US has long been one of demonizing and portraying populations and governments as being somehow unable to govern themselves properly to guarantee their own security either because they are too backward and ignorant or too weak to defend themselves. This is a particularly effective tactic with countries possessing non-white populations, particular Middle Eastern and Latin American nations whose “brown” people are portrayed as somehow ignorant and incapable of self-rule.

The tactic plays well to “Americans”, blinded by the country’s institutionalized endemic racism and from birth fed with propaganda that somehow the white “American” race group is the one chosen by God to rule the world and is somehow inherently more intelligent, worthy and exceptional than any other. Non-white Americans are of course forced to live with such a system and are of course figuratively “welcomed along for the ride” as long as they are supportive and live with the pretext that they are inferior and that the land of the “Red” man is the land of the white man.

Of course no one in the debate do those demonizing Afghanistan for the clerical error mention their own government’s complete and total failure economically but that is another issue. US/NATO need to justify their continued presence. With the issue of pay for the police, if one is to listen to many Afghans, the fault lies with the West, who many say is attempting to further weaken the country and who must be evicted as soon as possible. That is the Afghan perspective. The self-serving western perspective is that for the same reason they must stay, which is just in keeping with their long-term strategy in the region.

While blame is being traded by Afghan officials and others are blaming the West the issue appears to truly clerical in nature and does not reflect a need for the US/NATO to continue their occupation. Quite the opposite in fact it shows that law enforcement continues to function even with the absence of pay. Something Americans could never really understand in the first place.

While many western media outlets are jumping on the bandwagon and screaming “See they are ignorant, they must be occupied!” the New York Times appears to be one of the most balanced outlets reporting on the issue. The NY Times reports that: “Basil Massey, who runs the United Nations trust fund through which the police salaries are transferred to the Afghan government from donor nations said the money is in Afghanistan’s treasury and the trust fund was only now becoming aware of the problem because it was reconciling its books from the past quarter, which ended in December.”

According to the NYT “Afghanistan Finance Minister Omar Zakhilwal said the Interior Ministry’s paperwork arrived three days before the end of the Afghan fiscal year on Dec. 20. By then, the ministry’s processing system was already closed so the accounting books could be reconciled. The Interior Ministry “might as well have complained about us because we didn’t process their late requests, but we at the Ministry of Finance follow standard budgetary procedures — and that we stick to. Now that the ministry is again dispersing money, the police will soon receive their back pay, he said.”

NYT: Interior Ministry spokesperson Sediq Sediqqi, said the ministry had missed the deadline because of a shift in the dates for the fiscal year, and that the late paychecks affected only a few areas. Interior Minister Umar Daudzai, said he had already fired a number of officials and that the issue would not happen again.

Sounds reasonable, things happen, especially in a war torn occupied country. Sounds reasonable if one is objective, unless of course you want to use such an error for your own propaganda purposes and to justify a further occupation as it appears many western media outlets do.

The Christian Science Monitor is just one such publication reporting that the Afghan Government is “inept”, “does not even notice that their own police did not receive their salaries” and that the error is a “stunning display of incompetence”. In the same article they demonize Karzai for not caving in to conditions to guaranteeing the further occupation of his country and attempt to portray the occupation and the foreign invaders as somehow necessary as a force for good: “… allowing foreign troops to stay is crucial for the continued flow of aid to Afghanistan and for the country's stability.”

The article is a perfect example of American hypocrisy and their messianic approach to their own role in the world and by failing to mention the opposing side of the equation is a disservice to any of the poor readers who happen to come across the piece. Nowhere is there a mention that Afghanistan existed for thousands of years without US occupation, that the US/NATO occupying forces are guilty of thousands of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Afghanistan or that the only visible result of going on 13 years of occupation is a 40 fold increase in opium production.

The CSM finishes with: “If after 10 years and a war that has cost the US at least $1 trillion the government can't remember to pay its police, how many more years and how much money must be spent before it learns how?”

The idiocy of this statement is so glaring that I can only call it what it is, namely idiotic. First off since when is US/NATO an educational body and has the responsibility to ensure that countries pay their police on time? Second if after the US has spent at least $1 trillion dollars in Afghanistan engaged in a mission that has brought the people of the US nor of Afghanistan any benefit, this while the American people are hurting and the US’ own economy is bankrupt and the country is falling apart, when are the people going to learn to stand up and say “enough is enough”. Mentioning the US Government “learning” anything is a hopeless cause and one which has been abandoned by many long ago.

Afghanistan is a geopolitical prize from which US/NATO will never leave because it allows for placing US/NATO military assets near Russia and within range of central Asia, and it is now, thanks to US/NATO the world largest producer of opium and the biggest provider of CIA black funds on the planet. How many years and how much more money will be spent before the American people wake up and realize they have been duped?

Afghanistan needs to heal, to rebuild its infrastructure and its society and it does not need obtuse war profiteers and war criminals occupying it any longer to do so. Sadly even the Taliban seems a better option than continued US/NATO occupation, and this is according to US analysts and even the same reporter for the CSM. So go figure.

Syria and Terrorism: Separation of Security and Politics- John Robles

16 January, 19:34 PUBLISHED TO http://jar2.com/1/Archive/2013/August/Stop_Syrian_Invasion.html

It has been revealed that European security personnel and intelligence agents have been in active contact and in fact holding meetings with Syrian intelligence and other unspecified officials since at least the middle of the summer of 2013. A period directly before the US push to invade the country.

With regard to cooperation between the security services, official Damascus has recently stated that there is an apparent schism between politicians and security people in the West. According to RT, citing the BBC, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad confirmed the existence of such cooperation, a fact which is in sharp contrast to the western push for military intervention in Syria and the forceful removal of President Assad, as well as the now confirmed support of the tens of thousands of imported mercenaries and jihadists that the West was supporting.

It is important to note that the countries in question are European and that when the US/NATO decided it was time to invade Syria this past fall they were unable to garner the support for an invasion. It is also telling that US intelligence has not been involved in working with Syrian security, the reason why is obvious, as they have been involved in arming, supporting, training and importing the very jihadists that are now a threat to European and even US security.

Reportedly intelligence agents from France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom have been exchanging intelligence with the Syrians, in particular with regard to over 1,200 terrorists that are on western watch lists. Official Damascus reports that more countries are interested in an intelligence sharing relationship with Syria, this is despite the fact that the West has severed diplomatic relations with Damascus and all western embassies have been closed.

Regarding other European countries that have not yet worked with Syrian intelligence Mr. Mekdad stated: “Some are saying we are exploring the possibilities, some are saying we want to co-operate on security measures because those terrorists they are sending from Western Europe into Turkey, into Syria, have become a real threat to them.”

Recently James Comey, the director of the FBI, spoke out about the threat of jihadists trained in Syria coming to America, something sounding disingenuous coming from the US, but also pointing to an apparent schism between Washington politicians pushing for war, the CIA and the FBI itself. The “cry wolf” manner that the US has used terrorism since 9-11 to strip away rights and get away with everything under the sun has robbed it of any credibility and left the country vulnerable to a real terrorist attack.

While Washington has used terrorism as the pretext for allowing invasions and “intervention” to further the geopolitical goals of the elites and politicians since 9-11, other countries are faced with the now growing threat posed by the very terrorists Washington has backed and in the case of Syria, has imported in order to (in this case) remove president Assad and the government.

Security officers and intelligence agents worldwide have a mission to protect the interests of their respective countries but they also have a more important function and one that should always take precedent, namely guaranteeing the security of their respective populations and territories. In this regard fighting terrorism (real terrorism not the US promoted and hyped bogeyman) is a mission and an issue that may serve to unite security and intelligence agencies worldwide, and one that we can all agree must be fought and won to guarantee we are all protected.

One might argue that the statements by the director of the FBI fly in the face of the known support by CIA for Al-Qaeda elements in Syria and point to an increasing schism within the US intelligence community if they are to be taken at face value and not as yet another means straw man argument to increase the out of control US security state.

With regards to the CIA and the entire “War on Terror” post 9-11 paradigm that the US has unleashed on the world, it can be called a corruption and the abomination of the Obama nation, and this will be the case until those responsible for all of the massive post 9-11 US illegality are safely removed from power and prosecuted (sadly, a fact most agree will never happen).

The mission to fight terrorism was one which (as is the case today) intelligence agencies worldwide could all agree was a noble and necessary one, but unfortunately one that has been exploited and mutated by the US and used to bring about a repressive and illegal security state which has stripped millions of their basic human rights.

The abominations in the Obama nation brought to the world by Bush and his neoconservatives geopolitical planners who were willing to do anything to attain their goals and were continued by Obama include: Guantanamo, torture, aggressive wars disguised as “humanitarian interventions”, massive blanket surveillance, warrantless wiretapping, illegal indefinite detention, the end of Habeas Corpus, extra-judicial executions, foreign based black sites, illegal search and seizure, complete control of and the effective destruction of the free press and the complete and total forfeiture of the US Government and the US Constitution to the intelligence/military industrial complex which has profited from all of it.

All of the above issues are ones that upstanding members of the armed forces, the FBI, the CIA, the US Government and the population oppose but issues they apparently have no power to influence or stop. This has led to a situation, which akin to Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize, is an abomination.

If there is a schism between security services and politicians in the West I would argue this is a good thing and it is about time. Intelligence and security agencies, in order to avoid their being used as simply instruments to advance the policies of politicians (as we saw post 9-11 with the Iraq lies and manipulations being a perfect example) must be separated from political forces and allowed to perform their basic functions without political pressure or manipulation. This is something almost any person will agree with, including any conscientious intelligence officer, soldier, agent or official.

Of course intelligence agencies must be subject to vetting, oversight and civilian control but they must be able to exist independent of the flavor of the day politicians in power when it comes to performing the most important and basic mission of guaranteeing security, in this case protecting against terrorism.

With regard to the threat caused by the tens of thousands of jihadists and Al-Qaeda linked fanatics recruited, trained and imported into Syria, this is a threat for all civilized societies and despite the US wish to be rid of President Assad, the threat must be dealt with with extreme prejudice. These fanatics and homicidal lunatics can not be dealt with or controlled, a fact Saudi Prince Bandar may soon learn and one we are seeing today all across the Middle East. They are a disease and the Doctor has only one cure: liquidation.

For politicians who attempt to fund and back these elements, it may seem like a clever way to attain their goals but in the end terrorists can not and must not be negotiated with. The result of such collusion was seen in Benghazi Libya and the price Christopher Stephens had to pay. Yet CIA influenced by politicians such as George Bush, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Dick Cheney and the like continues to deal with terrorists and attempt to use them as their own secret non-state army.

The shortsighted policies of politicians and their often unattainable goals have in fact compromised the security services of the US and any country that attempts to have any dealings whatsoever with terrorists. Russian security understands this basic fact, as do countries like Syria and those in Europe working together to protect peaceful populations from the scourge of terrorism.

Hopefully the cooperation that is being carried out in Syria is a signal of a shift in the way that the “War on Terror” is to be fought worldwide. We have seen the US fail and it is time for the kids to leave the room and let the professionals take over.

This shift will hopefully see a more covert secret and precision war being fought against terrorist elements such as that carried out by the FSB and the SVR as opposed to the blanket stripping of rights and terrorist-on-every-corner-tactics that the US has been promoting since 9-11. In other words a Doctor with a scalpel vs a blind Butcher with a sledgehammer smashing everything in sight.

Getting back to the “schism” if you will. Again I would argue that if intelligence agencies are to fulfill their missions and be effective they must not be connected to political winds and politicians with their own agendas. Again CIA is a case in point as is Saudi.

We have seen time and time again since its creation that the CIA is just a tool for political expediency and for bringing about whatever “change” those in power wish to bring about. It is also one that is willing to do anything to fulfill its missions. This is wrong and the result is what we have today. Al-Qaeda has grown thousand fold in strength and size since 9-11 and this is due to failed policies and collusion with the terrorists to bring about geopolitical goals.

So while CIA and Saudi are once again in bed with Al-Qaeda, this time in Syria, the European intelligence agencies and even the FBI are now beginning to realize that they are the ones that are going to have to finally deal with the tens of thousands of jihadists that CIA/Saudi have unleashed in their insane drive to effect regime change in Syria. Had it not been for a threat by Saudi Prince Bandar to President Putin this past summer, regarding terrorist acts during the Sochi Olympics and an admission to controlling terrorists in Syria, including Chechen groupings, the world would not be the wiser to the level of collusion between certain politicians and terrorists.

If we want to make the world a better place, leave the politics to the politicians and security up to the professionals.

CIA drug operations heat up in Mexico with civilians caught in crossfire

20 January, 04:52   http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Mexico.html    http://www.jar2.com/Topics/War_and_Drugs.html

The ongoing long-running drug war in Mexico has taken a new turn as citizens begin to take matters into their own hands in order to finally be rid of the murderous drug gangs that have taken over large swaths of the country. Armed vigilante groups first began to pop at the beginning of 2013 all over Mexico and this past week one such group clashed not with the ruthless narco-killers running the government linked drug cartels, but with Mexican troops backed by none other than US President Barack Hussein Obama. In the incident which left as many as a dozen dead, the civilians in the town of Antenuz in the Mexican state of Michoacán did not have a chance against the heavily armed US trained Mexican forces. After it was over there were bloody bodies lining the streets and the dead included an 11-year-old girl.

Civilians trapped in US-backed drug war cross-fire

The outcry on behalf of the citizens has risen to an international level with the incident once again shining light on yet more collusion between the US Government, American special services and the illegal narcotics trade as reports point to US backing of both Mexican Army units and the drug cartels they are supposed to be fighting.

US supports drug cartels

This duplicity is further underlined by a recent report by the New American that: Federal authorities in the United States have been quietly supporting certain Mexican criminal empires, especially the Sinaloa drug cartel, in a bid to solidify the syndicates’ reign as dominant powerbrokers in particular territories, according to leaked e-mails from a U.S.-based Mexican diplomat to the private intelligence firm Stratfor. If cartel chiefs cooperate with authorities, “governments will allow controlled drug trades,” the diplomatic source wrote.

Although the armed civilian groups may also be said to share blame in the escalation of violence after being forced to react against the non-stop killings that have plagued Mexico. The real victims are the civilians as they have been devastated both by the criminal syndicates and the government.

Although the mission of the vigilante groups should be seen as being in line with that of the government, the government sees them as a threat and they are at odds with police and law enforcement making their struggle all the worse. After the latest incident involving the shooting of an 11-year-old girl it is now going to be even more difficult for the government to bring these groups into its fold and for the vigilantes to trust the federal forces.

Turf war and the “Knights Templar”

The BBC reported thatthe massacre of the civilians came after they launched an offensive against a powerful drug cartel which calls itself the Knights Templar.

According to the BBC and other media outlets including Mexican newspapers there is currently a very strong police and military presence said to be protecting the cartel in the town of Apatzingan where the Knights Templar is based. The narco-group is reportedly in control of most of the methamphetamine trade and traffic that is bound for the US.

The BBC reports one of the leaders of the local vigilante groups as having stated: "How does the federal government imagine that we would lay down our arms when they haven't detained a single leader of the Knights Templar? How is that fair?"

Join the police

Last Monday the Mexican Interior Minister Angel Osorio Chong announced that Mexico would be deploying federal troops to the western state of Michoacan and that the choice had been given to the vigilante groups to either lay down their arms or join the police. This is something many in the groups do not want to do because in many parts of the country the police are working in unison with the cartels and joining them would be suicide.

Federal troops move in

Federal troops have so far moved into the towns of Antunez, Nueva Italia and Paracuaro which had been seized by the armed vigilante groups last week in escalation of the violence in the state of Michoacán.

US needs war on anything

As the War on Terror winds down and the list of countries that were targeted for regime change and intervention has been put on hold, in various places such as in Afghanistan and now Mexico we have seen an upsurge in news related to illegal narcotics trafficking and the narco-trade. The correlation between the two events, the winding down of the War on Terror and the now almost seamless escalation of the US’ decades old War on Drugs is one that cannot be ignored.

Billions in black operations funding

The illegal narcotics trade and the collusion between the CIA and the West is one that is almost impossible to investigate as anyone who attempts to do so or gets too close is quickly shut down, but it is one that we know enough about from what has leaked out in the past 40 years or so and from the brave efforts of a handful of journalists, to say without a doubt that it exists.

Mr. Yury Fedotov, the Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), recently called news of a 40 fold increase in opium production in Afghanistan "sobering" and stressed that this situation poses a threat to health, stability and development in Afghanistan and beyond: "What is needed is an integrated, comprehensive response to the drug problem. Counter-narcotics efforts must be an integral part of the security, development and institution-building agenda".

In an early article I wrote “the elephant in the room that everyone is ignoring is the fact the United States and their CIA are colluding with the producers of heroin and in fact protecting the opium fields in Afghanistan while running duplicitous policies with the Taliban and the Karzai government.” With regard to Mexico the problem appears to be the same.

Enough is enough

Mexico, if we want to use some metaphors loved by American law enforcement proponents, is suffering from a plague of narcotics related crime that has spread like an epidemic throughout the country, engulfing, diseasing and destroying everything in its path, and the Mexican people have quite simply had enough with the level of crime and the inability of the authorities to stop it and have decided to take their communities back.

Mexico is the main illegal narcotics corridor into the American market and it is a hotly contested one worth billions of dollars annually with rival cartels vying for control in a bloody turf war that has raged for years.

The recent incident in the town of Antenuz in the Mexican state of Michoacán underlines the desperation of the civilian population and the hypocrisy of the Obama Administration and the US Government when it comes to the so-called “War on Drugs”.

US backs troops

According to numerous sources the Mexican troops are backed by the Obama administration which also backs the criminal syndicates. Again the New American reported that American troops and special operations units are already operating in Mexico. “In addition to supporting certain cartels such as Sinaloa, U.S. troops secretly operating in the nation were reportedly working with Mexican forces to perpetrate “surgical strikes.” Leading analysts equated the machinations to “death squads.” Long before those revelations hit the headlines, Obama announced an expansion of the Bush administration’s controversial program to support the Mexican government in its blood-drenched “war.” Despite widespread human-rights concerns, Washington, D.C., has continued to pour hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars into the drug-war coffers of Latin American governments — especially the one ruling Mexico — for years. So far, the schemes show no signs of slowing down or getting anywhere near victory.”

Endless CIA drug funding

Gary Webb, who committed suicide by shooting himself twice in the head, was one of the few journalists who successfully exposed a link between the CIA and cocaine traffickers raising funds for the Nicaraguan Contras in what was called the Iran-Contra affair.

The chief bank in that scheme, the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), was also used to launder money gained from the sale of opium from Afghanistan and Pakistan and paid to Osama Bin Laden and his Mujahideen.

Although the Knights Templar in Mexico are involved in methamphetamine trafficking and Columbian cocaine groups also work closely with CIA opium appears to be the drug of choice for raising black funds.

One of the first such documented cases was the support of anti-Communist Chinese Kuomintang (KMT) forces who were being funded by opium from China and Burma which was flown to Thailand via the CIA’s now infamous Air America.

In a recent interview with the Voice of Russia I spoke to Wayne Madsen and he mentioned Air America and CIA covert funding and their collusion in the illegal narcotics business. Mr. Madsen said the CIA and the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents are often shooting at each other because they have different missions, one to stop drugs and the other to import them.

Cocaine, opium and other narcotics find their way to American consumers through various channels but Mexico almost always figures as part of the voyage. From Afghanistan to Europe and Russia there is Manas and Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo and Hashim Thaçi, in the US the Mena Intermountain Municipal Airport in Mena Arkansas, is one CIA drop point, but almost all shipments go through Mexico.

Miami International Airport is another location where the CIA allowed at least one ton of nearly pure cocaine to be shipped into the US claiming they were doing so to gather intelligence but the cocaine was sold on the street.

In 1993 former DEA head Robert Bonner accused the CIA of importing several tons of pure cocaine into the U.S. via Venezuela.

In 1996 a Venezuelan anti-narcotics chief and longtime CIA asset named General Ramon Guillen Davila, was indicted for working with the CIA to smuggle tons of cocaine into the US.

According to Peter Dale Scott a former diplomat and professor of English, who believed the CIA was involved in the deaths of up half a million people in Indonesia in the mid-1960s, Mexico’s DFS intelligence agency, which was later called the Center for Research and National Security of Mexico, was like Al-Qaeda, a CIA creation and its director Miguel Nazar Haro, a CIA asset, helped the Guadalajara Cartel become Mexico's most drug syndicate in the 1980s. The cartel was also connected to the CIA through Honduran drug baron Juan Matta-Ballesteros, another CIA asset. Ballesteros ran SETCO, an airline used for smuggling drugs into the US.

The Godfather of the Mexican drug business Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo was also working with and providing funds for CIA operations. His narcotics activities were well known to the CIA and DEA, but they were ignored mainly because of his huge charitable contributions CIA backed groups.

Claims made by Vicente Zambada Niebla, the son of Ismael Zambada García a Mexican narcotics baron, that he and other top Sinaloa cartel members had received immunity by U.S. agents to smuggle cocaine into the US, are backed up by the New American story. He says they were allowed to operate as long as they provided intelligence on rival cartels. Which of course would have allowed the CIA to take out their completion.

Citing a Stratfor document the New American wrote: “Another bombshell uncovered in the leaked e-mails indicated that the U.S. federal government had deliberately allowed cartel hit men to murder people inside the United States if they agreed to offer their services to Washington. “Regarding ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) screwing up informants: They (ICE) were handling big hit men from Juarez and letting them kill in the U.S.,” a federal law enforcement supervisor wrote in an e-mail.

Conclusion

The CIA is out of control in their collusion with the global illegal narcotics trade and making billions of dollars in the process but things will soon be looking up. With the now open ended presence of US/NATO air bases worldwide, including those now set up in Afghanistan (now the world’s top opium producer) such as Shindad, Kandahar, Bagram and Kabul and developments in drone technology, such as the General Atomics Aeronautical Systems MQ-9 Reaper (Predator B-ER and B-003) Altair and Mariner, which can carry up to 3,000 pounds (1,360 kilograms), the CIA can make Air America look like child’s play. One advantage of drone drug trafficking is no more bothersome pilots and ground personnel to expose operations. Which might be why the CIA is adamant at keeping the drones under their control.

Free net means no NSA, HRW finally speaks out

http://www.jar2.com/Topics/NSA.html

While Obama has pretended to address the issue of mass surveillance, in a recent speech which some had expected would be filled with promises to reign in the massive US spying apparatus, Obama said absolutely nothing tangible and was blasted by privacy advocates, whistleblowers and a plethora of interested parties, experts and pundits.

Now in a yearly 667 page report for 2013 released in Berlin, Human Rights Watch (HRW) is warning that the revelations of massive spying by the US will cause countries to install controls to keep their users’ data within their own countries and that this will lead to internet censorship in countries with poor human rights records (no mention of US).

In the report HRW says that NSA spying revelations may cause countries such as China or the Gulf States to:"… force user data to stay within their own borders, setting up the potential for increased internet censorship".

Of course I would say this is a no brainer, such revelations should be forcing all governments to protect their citizens’ data from intrusive NSA spying but in doing so they will be getting in the way of and interfering with the US, the NSA and their FVEY partners’ efforts to mine the data of the entire planet.

Protecting the data of their citizens is every country’s responsibility and must be done, therefore such an argument seems disingenuous and it is also interesting to note that Human Rights Watch has been all but silent to the plight of information activists and free internet proponents until now.

To date HRW has had very little to say regarding internet privacy and censorship inside the United States and has also been all but silent as to the cases of Julian Assange, Bradley Manning and Jeremy Hammond, but all of a sudden is concerned with data being unavailable or “censored” and with internet freedom and free speech.

To their credit HRW did chide the US Government for their callousness to privacy rights: "The Snowden revelations have made clear that there has been an intrusion on our right to privacy of unprecedented scope, yet the government is dismissing any complaints about our right to privacy as irrelevant."

The director of Human Rights Watch Kenneth Roth (a former prosecutor) told the Guardian that: “… one of the biggest missteps the US administration had committed was to insist that there was a difference between the content of private communication and "metadata" – information about where, when and between whom the communication takes place.”

Mr. Roth put things into perspective quite well stating: "Imagine the government putting a video camera in your bedroom and saying 'don't worry, the feed will only go into a government computer, which we won't look at unless we have reason to believe that wrongdoing is taking place.”

Finally regarding national data protection from a technical standpoint it would be possible to block NSA to a large extent and protect the user data of citizens and this has nothing to do with censorship. Arguing that firewalling a country’s internet from NSA would lead to censorship is completely absurd.

Monitoring takes place by governments regardless of what the NSA is accessing and data protection and censorship are two different animals, of course for the US and its partners in internet tyranny, spying and control, anything countries do to keep them out will have to be demonized.

Humanity is served by wealth and not ruled by it – Pope Francis

http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Pope_Francis.html

22 January, 10:05

The outspoken new leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis has sent a message to the global financial elites gathered in Davos Switzerland for the annual World Economic Forum, an event where the richest of the rich and the world’s financial and political leaders gather to discuss pressing world issues and work out strategies and form alliances to ensure the status quo is maintained and that their businesses continue to grow, expand and profit.

There is usually little room at Davos for discussing the issues that directly concern the plight of the world's poor and the posh exclusive playboy surroundings of the InterContinental Davos luxury hotel and the exclusive resort 5,000 feet up in the Swiss Alps underline that fact, but this year it might seem that the elites are a little worried about the growing inequality in the world.

This year's get together titled: "The Reshaping of the World: Consequences for Society, Politics and Business", is apparently an attempt at addressing growing inequality in the world and as the Guardian reports "international leaders are still in crisis mode".

The opening thematic for the forum states that "technology is creating huge social change, shifting power from traditional hierarchies to networked heterarchies", meaning that the wealth may have to be spread out a bit, which would explain why the most powerful of the powerful may be in crisis mode.

Pope Francis, a true and humble champion for the world's down trodden has taken the unusual and courageous step of addressing those responsible for the huge disparities in wealth worldwide and for the suffering of what some say is 99% of the world's population that is not a member of their exclusive club in order to implore the elites to finally pay attention to the suffering of their fellow humans and he pulled no Papal punches in doing so.

Marking the first time that a message from the Holly See has been presented to the forum, Pope Francis' comments were read to those gathered by Cardinal Peter Turkson. It was unclear why the Pope himself was not invited, as he has a world popularity rating any of those gathered would envy and has become what some might call the new moral compass of the world, but it would be in keeping with his shunning of the accoutrements of the rich and the elites, who he sees as responsible for the plight of their fellow humans.

In his message the Pope addressed to Professor Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, the Pope called on participants to look at "the causes of the economic crisis affecting the world these past few years…"

After praising progress that had been made "…in different areas which have important consequences for the life of humanity", Pope Francis then stated that many achievements have "often have led to a widespread social exclusion. Indeed, the majority of the men and women of our time still continue to experience daily insecurity, often with dramatic consequences."

Pope Francis admonished attendees of the elite forum to attempt to be more inclusive saying it was responsibility: "I wish to emphasize the importance that the various political and economic sectors have in promoting an inclusive approach which takes into consideration the dignity of every human person and the common good. I am referring to a concern that ought to shape every political and economic decision, but which at times seems to be little more than an after-thought."

He called on the wealthy to help the weakest and most vulnerable:"Those working in these sectors have a precise responsibility towards others, particularly those who are most frail, weak and vulnerable. It is intolerable that thousands of people continue to die every day from hunger, even though substantial quantities of food are available, and often simply wasted."

Speaking of the millions of refugees worldwide displaced by the resource wars, seeming to address those directly responsible the Pope then stated: "Likewise, we cannot but be moved by the many refugees seeking minimally dignified living conditions, who not only fail to find hospitality, but often, tragically, perish in moving from place to place."

Pope Francis said his words were a challenge to those gathered to make a difference and a call for: "… decisions, mechanisms and processes directed to a better distribution of wealth, the creation of sources of employment and an integral promotion of the poor which goes beyond a simple welfare mentality."

The Pope's message comes against the backdrop of a report by Oxfam that shockingly concludes that 85 people, yes only 85, share the combined wealth of 3.5 billion of the world's poorest and among them hold approximately 1.6 trillion dollars.

According to Oxfam 1% of the global elites control about $110 trillion which is about 65 times more than the poorest 50% of the world's population. The Guardian reports that Winnie Byanyima, the Executive Director of Oxfam said: "It is staggering that in the 21st Century, half of the world's population – that's three and a half billion people – own no more than a tiny elite whose numbers could all fit comfortably on a double-decker bus."

Also coinciding with the start of "Davos", the International Monetary Fund is set to publish its latest World Economic Outlook which is expected to shed a positive light on forecasts for global GDP for the elites no doubt.

Russia's Duma calls on West to not interfere in Ukraine's internal affairs

23 January, 12:10

With an overwhelming majority vote of 388 out of 450, the Russian State Duma passed a resolution slamming foreign politicians and forces interfering in what is now an escalating political crisis in Ukraine between protestors and law enforcement. The Crimean Parliament has also issued a statement in an emergency session.

The declaration was proposed by the speaker of the Russian State Duma Sergey Naryshkin and calls on foreign politicians to refrain from involvement in the ongoing developments in Ukraine. This is the first time that such a declaration has been passed and it is unique because it calls out western powers for meddling in the internal affairs of another country, something they have done with impunity for decades, including here in Russia.

According to media sources the resolution reads: "The State Duma urges Western political circles to stop meddling in the internal affairs of sovereign Ukraine in violation of international law and to stop contributing to further escalation of conflict."

The Duma resolution comes as the level of violence has increased in Kiev on the heels of new Ukrainian legislation that seeks to limit the violent nature of the protests and after remarks by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov who said the situation in Ukraine is "spinning out of control" and demanding the West stop "artificially undermining" the legitimately elected government.

Russia is also calling on al members of the Ukrainian opposition to refrain from using violence and to seek ways to bring about a constructive dialogue with the authorities.

As if to underline their meddling into the internal affairs of the country and their complete disregard for official Ukraine, the US Embassy in Kiev has responded to the escalation in unrest by issuing a statement saying that it would revoke the visas of several unnamed Ukrainian officials it claims are responsible for the violence. Of course the US does not call on the opposition they are backing and which is responsible for all of the unrest in the country to put an end to the violence and their reckless statements only serve to add fuel to an already raging fire.

The protests which began in November in Ukraine after an EU integration deal which had almost nothing to offer to benefit Ukraine was put on hold in favor of a very beneficial widening of trade ties with the Russian Federation and the countries that are members of the Customs Union. The simple almost benign sovereign economic and trade decision was met by an extremely violent reaction from the West which had planned to use EU integration as the carrot to entice Ukraine to join NATO and eventually evict the Black Sea Fleet and cut Ukraine off from its brethren in Russia. The violent reaction from the West was also due to the recent loss the US faced in attempting to wgae yet another war of aggression against Syria.

US meddling in Ukraine became a blatantly open fact rather than a covert operation after western organized, backed, paid and supported opposition forces began occupying Kiev's Independence Square, and a parade of western politicians came out of the woodwork to blast the government, call for early elections and even make unprecedented visits to Kiev, such as European Union Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton and US Senator John McCain.

Although the US and the West continue to attempt to keep their dirty hands clean eschewing responsibility and obfuscating their ties to the violent protestors, many of whom receive 30 euros a day from the West, and continue to blame official Ukraine and Russia for the violence, even the Crimean Parliament has blasted the western backed opposition and even blamed them for the bloodshed.

In an emergency session the Supreme Council of Crimea adopted a statement on the political crisis in Ukraine which passed with the support of 78 of the 81 deputies. The Crimean parliamentarians blame opposition leaders for the bloodshed and have said they will not give Crimea to extremists and neo-Nazis who they state are attempting to seize power.

The Crimean Statement reads: "The political crisis, the formal pretext for which was a pause in Ukraine's European integration, has developed into armed resistance and street fights. Hundreds of people have been hurt and, unfortunately, some people have been killed. The price for the power ambitions of a bunch of political saboteurs - Klitschko, Yatsenyuk, and Tyagnibok - is too high. They have crossed the line by provoking bloodshed, using the interests of the people of Ukraine as a cover and pretending to act on their behalf."

The statement adopted by the Crimean Parliament also blasts European officials who previously condemned the activities of the all-Ukrainian association Svoboda but have now joined with nationalists in the Ukrainian parliament "… in an unnatural 'political love' with Ukrainian neo-Nazis and their allies to 'be friends' against Russia."

The Crimean Statement finishes by asserting that the Parliament and its members will stick to their mandate and not be swayed: "On behalf of the people of Crimea who elected us, we are saying that we will not give Crimea to extremists and neo-Nazis who are looking to seize power in Ukraine by dividing the country! The people of Crimea will never engage in illegitimate elections, will never recognize their results, and will not live in a 'Bandera' Ukraine! We are full of determination to defend the historical choice that was made at a referendum on the issue of the restoration of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea 23 years ago."

The level of violence in Ukraine is escalating as the West continues to meddle in the internal affairs of the country refusing to give up what was to be their crowning jewel in their takeover of Eastern Europe and their surrounding of Russia with missiles and NATO military infrastructure. Unfortunately for the people of Ukraine the West has no interest in the people of Ukraine and the level of bloodshed will continue to escalate as the people in the country begin to realize what the people of the Middle East already know, there is absolutely nothing humanitarian about US/NATO intervention, and the people are just a frivolous pesky problem for the Washington geopolitical planners.

Internal meddling, the new threat to state security - By John Robles

http://www.jar2.com/Topics/State_Security.html

26 January, 03:01

Throughout history states have risen and fallen and those that have risen and prospered have successfully understood and dealt with the threats to state security that were prevalent in their times. In the post 9-11 world we are faced with a new paradigm that the events of 9-11 were manipulated to bring about. Therefore it is of ultimate importance for the peaceful nations of the world to understand exactly who was behind those events. It is already clear who has benefitted and who has manipulated the events to engage in a plethora of activities that amount to crimes against peace and crimes against all humanity. Those actors have plunged our world into a lawless paradigm where the biggest threat to the states of the world today is not terrorism but those who would use terrorism and the threat of terrorism to bring about their own ends and in the extreme facilitate the destruction of states and the overthrowing of governments.

Goal

The subject of this article is one that warrants much further research and study by security specialists. My goal is not to attempt to properly address the issue but to shine light on it and hopefully stir debate and further study of the problem.

Real threat

Terrorism in itself is a real and continuing threat, that is an unarguable fact, but the bigger danger we have seen comes from those who finance and promote terrorism and even worse from those who use it as a pretext for military invasions and occupations.

Pretext for invasion and regime change

A perfect case in point is Afghanistan which has been occupied for almost 13 years by the US, has seen hundreds of thousands of troops deployed, has seen up to a million civilian lives extinguished and yet according to American intelligence agencies and even the Defense Department in an assessment to US President Obama in 2009  there were only 100 AL-Qaeda fighters in Afghanistan.

In 2010, then CIA Director Leon Panetta said there were less than 50 Al-Qaeda fighters in Afghanistan and even worse in 2011 Congressman David Cicilline stated that there were only 25 to 30 Al-Qaeda fighters in the country. Meaning the US has spent over one trillion dollars of their taxpayer’s money, occupied a country for more than a decade and lost over 3,400 of the world’s best trained and equipped troops to fight a couple of dozen rag-tag Islamic terrorists, all of whom could have been quietly liquidated in one night in a JSOC operation.

Supporting anyone against the state

As we have seen in Yugoslavia, in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, throughout the Middle East, in Syria, in Venezuela, Cuba, South America, Russia and now in Ukraine, the US and its surrogates have supported any element that is against the state in any country that the US has unilaterally determined requires regime change.

This support for destabilizing, militant, insurgent and more often than not murderous forces has worked for the West to affect regime change in scores of countries and this support is in fact the biggest threat that countries face today if they wish to follow a sovereign path independent of the US and NATO.

The hegemony of the empire

The tactic of using, supporting and promoting any “opposition” to bring about the collapse of states or the change of governments has been seen from Egypt to Ukraine and is used to maintain waning US hegemony in countries that the US has decided they need to control or which possess resources or other “interests” for them.

These interests can be of any type including economic, resources, geopolitical influence or even the projection of military force to maintain hegemony. The playbook is the same and we are seeing it played out once again in Ukraine.

Preventing, dealing with and identifying forces

Preventing

Organs of state security in all countries around the world need to be vigilant of any forces within, but most importantly without, their territories which may seek to bring about the destruction of their states.

A healthy open and just society and a government that looks out for the interests of its people is not an automatic cure or guarantee for security but it is a good foundation. A government that properly addresses the grievances of its citizens and subjects does more to prevent the growth of dissent and destabilizing forces than any other.

If grievances and the voice of the people are heard by the government then the state is almost guaranteeing its own security. However there is still the danger of outside forces and actors introduced into a country to destabilize it. Such as in Ukraine and Syria and the attempts in Russia.

Russia which has a long experience of dealing with almost every kind of nefarious force possible has dealt with the threat effectively, more or less quietly and identified methods and means that were being used and dealt with them. However for smaller countries with less robust organs of state security and more volatile less educated populations dealing with forces of outside interference is much more difficult if not impossible.

In the area of prevention in the age of the internet, special attention must be paid by the security services to the manipulation, dissemination and targeting of information that runs counter to the interests of the state and the people. This includes, for example, the introduction of previously non-issues into a populace to divide it and cause dissent. The West has been very successful at this and the most obvious case in point is the introduction of the divisive issue of same sex marriages, which although “normal” for Americans, was never an issue for the most of the rest of the world until the US introduced it and attached it to its foreign policy.

Identifying

The most important area when it comes to identification in my opinion is the timeliness and effectiveness of the identification.

Dealing with the threat

With the case of a normal opposition in a democratic or fair system, of course the threat is dealt with through normal political discourse, debate and an address of grievances. In short sitting down at the negotiating table and working things out. That is with a normal opposition. However when there are fanatical or extremist elements who use violence they must be dealt with using extreme prejudice and force and effectively liquidated immediately.

The new opposition

A new phenomena we have seen in the post 9-11 world is an irreconcilable opposition, and with the case of Russia, one which had no clear goal or even grievances other than the destruction of the state or the removal from power of the elected leader.

This is the form of “opposition” that we are seeing in Ukraine. An opposition funded, backed and instructed from the outside, in this case from the US. In a normal scenario these “traitors” would be dealt with using the full force of the state as they are a threat to the continuity of the state and the government and the people, but this new western backed opposition is like a disease, once you have it, it is almost impossible to get rid of.

As in Ukraine the “opposition” has the advantage of the full array of US instruments at its disposal, in this case the most important is a complete and total media onslaught, with the “opposition” even allowed on television to call for the kidnapping and punishment of police.

New methods to secure the state

Ukraine, due to western meddling and its open society has been an easy target for the West and in the current climate the state would be wise to take emergency measures which should have been in place before the current unrest escalated into bloodshed. But it is not too late.

First and foremost the state should shut down the instruments that are being used by the outside actors to communicate, instruct and propagandize their installed opposition. The most obvious and simple measure would be shutting down internet access and cell phone communications. The US has shown that this is their favorite tool and we saw it used during the Arab Spring and in Syria.

The other methods that must be developed and implemented to effectively deal with the threat are something the security services must study and bring about once the threat is identified and contingency plans put in place.

A free net

In this regard (identification) the internet can be an invaluable tool if it is kept free and allowed to operate without interference. A wise government will monitor the net and use it to connect with its citizens. It will use it to understand the wishes of its populace and to work out strategies to address grievances. Not as the US has done namely to manipulate, spy on and crack down on the population.

Isolation

If the threat of outside interference is in fact the largest threat to the security of the world’s states, as I have put forth, then the world community, and I mean the real world community not the US and its surrogates, needs to take measures to deal with that threat.

As more and more situations come about such as that in Ukraine, the US may find itself more and more isolated as more and more countries begin to realize that secretaries of state of foreign powers handing out cookies to violent protestors who wish to overthrow the government is not something normal but direct outside interference and part of a concerted effort to destroy the state.

Conclusion

My hope is that the above piece will stir debate and help the people of the world realize that just because your country does not allow gay marriage does not mean it is illegitimate. We are all different and all our differences are legitimate and must be respected and protected.

Finally, never take food from a stranger, especially when that stranger wants to overthrow your president.

Russia will not interfere in Ukraine – President Putin

29 January, 2014   07:40   http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Vladimir_Putin.html

The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin has completed a summit meeting between the Russian Federation and the European Union which President Putin has summarized as being constructive and held in an open and business-like manner. Moscow has given the summit positive marks on many fronts. According to the Kremlin the meeting was held at the request of the EU. The following report and commentary is by the VOR’s John Robles.

The meeting was held in a narrower format than usual at the request of the EU thus the issues that were discussed were fewer than would normally be expected. The most important outcome of the summit was the signing of a joint Russia-EU statement on combating terrorism, however European-Eurasian integration was high on the agenda as well the current crisis in Ukraine and security at the Sochi Olympics was also touched upon by the president and EU heads.

Eurasian EU integration

During the joint press conference after the summit which was held by President Vladimir Putin, Council of Europe President Herman Van Rompuy and European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, President Putin stated that the most important subjects covered were issues related to the bilateral Russia – EU agenda. According to the Kremlin website President Putin stated that with regard to bilateral issues the creation of an integrated space from Lisbon to the Pacific Coast was one of the most important topics covered.

President Putin: “The most important thing is that we had a very frank discussion of issues on our bilateral agenda. We discussed strategic goals and tasks of our cooperation, including prospects for the creation of a common economic and humanitarian space stretching from Lisbon to the Pacific coast, which my colleagues have already mentioned.”

President Putin underlined the importance of Russia – EU cooperation on many fronts including on trade where record levels are being maintained and continue to grow, now surpassing $410 million. He underlined the strategically important energy trade with the EU where the EU receives 24% of its gas and 27% of its oil from the Russian Federation. Bilateral investment is also continuing to rise according to the president, with EU investment in Russia already at the $288 billion level and Russian investment in the EU now at approximately $80 billion.

Both sides agree that integration is important and but President Putin said there should be more contact between the EU and Russia regarding the Eastern Partnership.

President Putin: "As concerns an agreement on our consultations regarding the Eastern Partnership, our European partners and we have agreed that this would be extremely useful," Putin said at a press conference following an EU-Russia summit in Brussels on Tuesday.” He also stated: "We have invited the European Union leadership to analyze the possibility of forming a free trade area between the EU and the Eurasian Economic Union being set up by Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan."

Sochi Olympics

President Putin said that Russia was grateful for the cooperation of “certain” EU countries in the area of security for the Sochi Olympics leaving the question open as to which countries were not cooperating. Despite that omission Russia – EU cooperation on security and terrorism continues to grow and is a stable ongoing effort that appears not to be affected by political, economic or other concerns. This unified position is important for guaranteeing the overall stability and security of mutual space. The European part of Russia being the largest “country” in Europe makes this area of cooperation vital.

Ukraine

With regard to the fluid and heightening level of the crisis in Ukraine President Putin was particularly candid but maintained a diplomatic stance particularly in the area of US/EU interference in Ukraine, an area where he could have blasted the EU but instead quietly chided those interfering in the internal crisis.

President Putin: "Concerning advice for Ukraine on what to do and how. I think the Ukrainian people can sort this out themselves. At least Russia will never interfere in this."

"I can only imagine how our European partners would have reacted if amid a crisis, say, in Greece or in Cyprus, our foreign minister had appeared at an anti-European rally and started making calls. We believe this is not very good in general, and, taking into consideration certain specifics of relations between Russia and Ukraine, this is simply unacceptable and impossible for us."

In televised comments given during the press conference on Russia’s Rossiya 24 news channel President Putin stated that Russia would forgive a $2.7 billion gas debt that Ukraine has, and that the further forgiveness of reduced charges for gas deliveries would be considered but that this will be more difficult.

It is again important to note that President Putin reiterated that Russia will not interfere in the affairs of Ukraine. Although Ukraine is perhaps Russia’s closest and historically important ally and friend and “interference” in the form of peacekeeping operations, for example, might be something that “should” occur and is in fact in Russia’s interest, this statement follows Russia’s steadfast policy and calls on other states to avoid interference in internal matters in other countries.

President Putin’s staunch position on non-interference, even when detrimental to Moscow, is a testament to his principles and the following of accepted laws, norms and international standards which Russia has repeatedly called on other states to also abide by. Thus President Putin and Moscow could never be accused of hypocrisy or double standards, something certain western powers have no problem with when it comes to their foreign policies.

President Putin also stated that “… the more outside interference there is the more problems it creates”,and this is entirely true when it comes to Ukraine as it is western meddling and support of the worst elements in Ukraine that has led to the current crisis.

In a candid moment the president let out a piece of information that has not been covered anywhere in the press but which characterizes the conflict in Ukraine for what it really is. President Putin described instances where a religious leader (who he did not name) was calling for Ukrainians to go to Kiev to destroy the government. The calls were so nationalistic in nature that President Putin said they have no place in a civilized society. Underlining the uncivilized nature of the Ukrainian “opposition”.

Apparently a religious leader is attempting to rally people to attack the government by stating through the use of racial epithets that: Black people, Russians and Jews should never be allowed to rule Ukraine.

This goes to the heart of what has occurred in Ukraine, where fascist, neo-nazi, nationalist and racist forces, after having received training, support and financing from the West, have joined together in what can only be described as an insurrection and a coordinated attempt to topple the democratically elected and legitimate government for the sole reason that the government chose to maintain ties with its historical ally Russia.

Armed and armored insurrectionists who set police on fire, kill law enforcement officers, storm and take government building, create havoc and terrorize the populace have proven long ago that they are no longer a reasonable opposition which must be supported. Their actions are a threat to the continuity of the state itself and their tactics have crossed into the area of terrorism for which there can only be one cure, liquidation. However the West continues to tell the Ukrainian Government not to use force, even though the only option those using force have left the government is an equal and entirely justified symmetrical response. Perhaps Ukraine, like the proverbial Russian Bear will slowly wake up and deal with the threat as it should be dealt with before it is allowed to destroy the state further, that is my opinion. President Putin put it thus: Let calls for the non use of force also apply to the opposition.

Have no doubt while Victoria Nuland may have handed out cookies and doughnuts to those aimed at toppling the government in Ukraine, the US and the West would never in a thousand years allow any anti-government forces to seize government building and escalate unrest to the level it has promoted in Ukraine. If anything analogous occurred in the US those responsible would almost no doubt no longer be alive to continue their activities.

Welcome to Sochi, no US warships required

29 January, 17:11   http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Sochi_Olympics.html

Throughout history the Olympics have been a celebration of sport and a time when even warring nations lay down their arms and settle their differences on the playing field. It has been a time when all nations regardless of their geo-political leanings, internal conflicts or spats with their neighbors have a chance to put aside differences and celebrate human advances and achievements in sports.

For the guests, the athletes, the media and the delegations it is a time to show the world the best side of their countries and to get to know the people and the customs of the hosting nation. A time when we can all be friends, regardless of race, religion or political beliefs and above all put aside conflicts and for once, attempt to find peace amongst our fellow citizens of the world.

Given all of that therefore it would truly be antithetical to the spirit of the games and in fact an unthinkable abomination to bring uninvited warships into the hosting nations’ waters no matter what the pretext. But that would be in a normal world. Unfortunately one country believes it can unilaterally propose such a move and pretend it is doing so out of some concern for security against a threat that is being over-hyped to the level of hysteria.

Are US warships really necessary?

The United States has been unilaterally working on “contingency” plans which require two US warships to enter Russian territorial waters in the case of a terrorist attack. This is unheard of US secretary of State Chuck Hagel has stated that the US has already deployed two US Navy warships to “stand guard” in the Black Sea during the games just in case Americans have to be evacuated.

According to Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby: "The United States has offered its full support to the Russian government as it conducts security preparations for the Winter Olympics. Air and naval assets, to include two Navy ships in the Black Sea, will be available if requested for all manner of contingencies in support of – and in consultation with – the Russian government."

In reality however there is no need for US warships. The Russian Black Sea Fleet is perfectly capable of dealing with such contingencies and there is no doubt the Russian Navy could deploy the necessary resources if the need were to arise.

The same is true of the helicopters and C-17 transport planes the US is saying will be on standby in Germany. Russia has analogous aircraft and air support much closer to the scene and ready to respond in minutes if needed rather than the hours that the US aircraft will take.

According to the Guardian (LINK 1) “US officials have concluded there would be major obstacles to mounting a large-scale effort by the military or other US government resources to evacuate Americans from Sochi, said a source familiar with Obama administration debates. The most formidable roadblock US officials have discussed regarding contingency plans for Sochi is that Russian authorities have historically been reluctant to allow foreign military forces, especially those of the United States, on Russian territory.”

So then why the warships?

US flexing of muscles in the Black Sea

US/NATO are desperate to obtain a military footing and eventual military control of the Black Sea, the real reason for the attempts at pulling Georgia and Ukraine and other neighboring countries into NATO and many experts would argue the real reason for the current push to force Ukraine to integrate with the EU and turn its back on Russia.

The US also will do anything to steal the show from Russia or make Russia look weak especially at such an important event as the Olympics. This is obvious by US coverage of the events and the preparations for the games. The level of hysteria in the US media about the Sochi Games would be laughable if it were not for the fact that such coverage is all the Americans get.

There is in reality no threat that requires warships and even former CIA and NSA Director Michael Hayden has said he trusts Russia’s ability to provide security and that Americans will be safe. If there was such a real and present threat the US Government would issue a travel ban or other such measure to prevent Americans from travelling to Sochi.

The universal pretext

Just like 50 Al-Qaeda fighters are the reason for a 13 year occupation of Afghanistan and the deployment of hundreds of thousands of US troops, one lone “terrorist” woman appears to be the bogeyman for stationing warships in the Black Sea.

Yet terrorism is the reason for the season in the US and in a “war on Terror” how else can they respond? With a quiet team of snipers and special forces? No. Bring in the warships.

Different Approach

Americans are saturated and bombarded with the terrorist behind every tree that allows the US hyper security surveillance state to continue and the American mass media are so used to hyping and over-hyping the terrorist bogeyman, in unison with the entire US Government security apparatus while never foiling a real unarguable terrorist plot that even people like Mitt Romney (who said he would go to the Sochi Olympics and take his family) are amazed that Russia actually has and obtains actionable intelligence, effectively deals with and neutralizes terrorist threats.

According to the Daily Mail (LINK 2) “Mr. Romney who organized the Winter Games in Salt Lake City in 2002, told The Today Show last week that the fact that the Russian organizers have released the names and photos of suspected terrorists who may be plotting an attack shows that they have an 'extraordinary intelligence' program.”

Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) and the entire Russian security apparatus works very differently than how the Americans do and with regard to terrorism the differences are striking.

Where the Americans love to advertise and raise threat levels etc., and bombard the populace with imagined or possible threats, such as in Sochi, the FSB and Russian security quietly identify, locate and neutralize.

Where the US sends in warships, calls in drones strikes on “suspected” terrorists, and invades countries, the Russian services quietly and with almost no fanfare send in small highly trained teams and quietly “liquidate” or neutralize threats.

Unlike the US, most anti-terrorist operations are only known about in Russia after they have been completed and most threats, such as any that might exist in Sochi, are quietly dealt with by seasoned professionals with effective tried and proven methods and tactics.

Most of the successful anti-terrorist operations in Russia are not even heard about by the populace as the Russian state has no need to make the populace fearful and does not seek to make citizens accept a stripping of their rights in the name of security.

Even as a journalist with access to hundreds of information sources both internal and external, news of FSB anti-terrorist operations sometimes only comes in a year end accounting to the president by the head of the FSB and perhaps a small posting on their site.

As I have written in the past, just like the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry, the FSB is staffed by quiet dedicated professionals who know their jobs and understand how to deal with any threat, be they internal or external.

The FSB and Russian security are also no strangers to large scale mass events, this experience (a carryover from Soviet times) has been proven time and time again and with the World’s attention focused on the Sochi Games you can be sure that every resource available has been put into overdrive to guarantee security.

Also unlike their American security counterparts the Russian services deal with human intelligence (HUMIT) on a far larger scale and more effectively. While their US counterparts are sitting at computer screens looking for keywords or gaining questionable intelligence through “enhanced interrogation” Russia’s professional are speaking to reliable sources, intercepting real communications and in the end liquidating real threats rather than some kids with gasoline in a bottle (US NATO Summit in Chicago).

I could continue but I think you get the idea. I would definitely go to Sochi and feel perfectly safe doing so, especially since I am also sure the Russian state would never engage in false flag terrorism and has never negotiated, backed, armed or otherwise cooperated with terrorists.

Media Hysteria

It is sad to watch the US and Western media coverage of the issue of a possible attack at the Sochi Games. Experts, politicians and every kind of pundit and commentator under the sun is ready to come out of the woodwork and scream about how “dangerous” Sochi is. This cannot be further from the truth and people with real operational intelligence like Michael Hayden are refreshing to hear (I never thought I would say that) when they say they would feel safe and bring their families to the Sochi Olympics.

The western media seems to be in Russo-phobia overdrive on this one with CNN appearing to be heading the unprecedented US campaign to discredit the Sochi Olympics with almost non-stop broadcasts of supposed terrorist threats inside Russia that they themselves seem to have more knowledge about than the Russian security services themselves.

The hysteria which is being promoted by certain elements of the US Government and disseminated worldwide by the subservient US media is disturbing on many levels. However for this writer the most damning omission present (or rather “absent” depending on how you want to look at it) in all of the western media debate and analysis and endless commentary is one very loud, real and documented threat that has been made public and that directly involves the Sochi Olympics. That threat is one made by Saudi Prince Bandar last summer to President Putin. During the conversation in question he even admitted that Chechen terrorists were under Saudi control. To which President Putin quietly responded: “We know”.

Saudi Prince Bandar who has since been on another official visit to Moscow at first attempted to bribe Russia’s president in order to force Russia to pull its support for Syria, then when that did not work, in slightly veiled language threatened a terrorist attack during the Sochi Olympics. Will the US media report on US partner Prince Bandar “Bush”? Not likely. However it is important to recall such a threat was made.

Conclusion

The Olympics are about peace, sports and the brotherhood of all nations. Let’s focus on that, after all if we focus on “phantom terrorists”, the terrorists win without even having to lift a finger.

Let the professionals worry about security, in Russia the FSB, along with other anti-terrorist and security services, may not be making loud press statements or raising the alarm every time there is a threat, that does not mean they are not on the job.

During the Sochi Games there will be literally tens of thousands of vigilant quiet professionals guaranteeing security. Who knows? One of them might sit next to you on a bus. If you happen to meet one of these quiet warriors, tell them thank you. It would mean more to them than the glory many American colleagues seek.

As for the warships? Please keep the warships at home. Believe it or not Russia has plenty of ships and helicopters and transport aircraft (even an entire fleet in the Black Sea) and in the event they are needed is always generous and ready to help anyone in need, especially foreign guests who come in peace to celebrate human achievement in sport.

Welcome to Sochi! Let the games begin.

NSA: no terrorists caught, yet entangled in everything - By John Robles

http://www.jar2.com/Topics/NSA.html

31 January, 12:29

There is so much missing or purposefully obfuscated in the debate about NSA/Five Eyes spying, US Government illegality, CIA collusion with al-Qaeda, Guantanamo, 9/11, torture, drones, Afghanistan, Iraq and everything that millions of people have been outraged about for over a decade, but the most striking is that almost no one is proposing closing these organizations down and few are talking about prosecuting those responsible.

The glaring problem that everyone seems to be missing or purposefully avoiding, the elephant in the room if you will, is that everything that has been revealed by Edward Snowden and debated about endlessly is completely illegal and for a government and a "secret agency" indefensible, but due America's self promoted "exceptionalism" everyone finds it more comfortable to avoid such talk. In reality the NSA must be shut down but everyone in the West and in the western controlled corporate media do not dare to even debate this issue.

The NSA, as a secret organization whose initials stood for "No Such Agency" 20 years ago, has failed to maintain its secrecy and has gone from being the most secret agency of the US Government to a common household word. This is unacceptable in the world of espionage and the fact that a large quantity of its dirty laundry is available on-line and debated on a daily basis should be reason enough for the whole agency to be shut down. From a security standpoint in allowing leak after leak culminating in the mania that has become Edward Snowden the agency has proven that it is porous, prone to leakage and unable to maintain its secrets. These words are words that should be said by someone on the US Senate Intelligence Committee in serious hearings not by a Russian journalist but we have seen that US politicians, the US President and the US mass-media are completely impotent when it comes to oversight or dealing with real threats to security and even worse than impotent but complicit when it comes to illegality committed by any government body or their security structures.

NSA/CIA etc Illegality, Ineffectiveness

In an article for Global Research by James Corbett dealing with the choreographed media operations that the NSA is engaged in continuing its illegality and escaping oversight. In the article Mr. Corbett writes that prior to 9-11 the NSA was already spying on all Americans, was tracking Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda (the CIA's Data-Base) and then withholding that information from the CIA's Bin Laden unit. In other words the NSA could have prevented 9-11 if it was in fact carried out by Al-Qaeda but did not and then used the event, according to Mr. Corbett to say it needed more powers and to justify its illegal surveillance of Americans.

This usage of 9-11 as a blanket reason to justify all form of US Government CIA/NSA etc. illegality has grown truly tired and unbelievable. From the crimes against humanity that were the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, to the illegal torture prison at Guantanamo, to the illegal extra-judicial execution by drone program and finally to the blanket surveillance of all Americans 9-11 has been the justification. 9-11: events which have not even been properly explained or investigated and will never be because they were the basis for all of the other illegality.

Recently ex MI5 officer David Shayler put it this way in a VoR interview: "… if we stop funding government, it stops funding this nonsense, it stops funding things like the NSA and MI5 and MI6. And it is not like we are going to be attacked if these organizations disappear, because as I say they are causing most of the conflict on the planet in the first place."

Mr. Shayler is not alone in having the bravery to say what has to be said and the public record bears his words out that these agencies are truly the root of all evil and are not engaged in defense or protection but rather in hiding illegality and assuring their own continued funding and illegal conduct and operations.

In an article for wired dot com David Kravets recently wrote about how the NSA's spying was illegal, ineffective and should be stopped: "Based on information provided to the Board, we have not identified a single instance involving a threat to the United States in which the telephone records program made a concrete difference in the outcome of a counterterrorism investigation," the report found. "Moreover, we are aware of no instance in which the program directly contributed to the discovery of a previously unknown terrorist plot or the disruption of a terrorist attack."

Even though one judge did find it illegal, the NSA just found another judge who it owned to say it wasn't. As for not preventing a single terrorist attack, well let the record speak for itself. If the NSA with its billion dollar budget and the supposed ability to monitor, intercept and store everything anyone says or does through any sort of electronic communication and has been doing so since before 9-11 then why are they unable to show even 1 single terrorist attack that they have prevented? And why were they not able to prevent 9-11 itself, since they could have as the record shows. Could it be that 9-11 was really an inside job?

I dare say if any such organization existed in Russia heads would roll and the whole operation would be shut down. What are they really doing in the billion dollar Puzzle Palace? Playing video games?

They answer to that is undoubtedly no. They are spying on the world and every single citizen of this planet that they can collect data on to guarantee the continuity of the illegal security state, the profits of the paper bankers and the continued existence of the US military industrial complex. Oh and according to Mr. Corbett collecting data on foreign leaders with which to blackmail them with. That used to be the domain of the CIA and the FBI but that is the subject of another discussion.

Oversight

If you are reading this think about this for a minute: why is this appearing on Russian media being written about by a Russian journalist? Is it because Russia is somehow involved or cares about the NSA? No Russia has enough of its own headaches to deal with but last summer the entire illegal US security paradigm was unwontedly dumped in Russia's lap in the form of American Patriot Edward Snowden who was not a Russian agent, had no connection to Russia nor had even ever been on the territory of the Russian Federation. Even worse for Russia is that Snowden is an unapologetic and outspoken American patriot and an agent of both the CIA and the NSA. Not the normal type of person Russia should or does protect.

Think about this as well if the US mass media was performing its function and if the US president and the government he is supposed to be leading were doing their jobs and serving the interests of the American people by holding those committing illegality accountable, most of the illegality that has been debated in the world media about the US since 9-11 would not have even come to light and all of the matters that I have written about over the years would not have been necessary. But the US is not capable of conducting proper oversight nor of hiding its own illegality, it is out there for the world to see debate and apparently to accept.

That is the key problem in the US. There is no oversight and the last instance of oversight, the president himself, is also a party to the illegality. Terror Tuesdays and Guantanamo prove this. Although it is not entirely his fault, he is afraid of being assassinated no doubt if he does not follow the instructions of the military industrial complex as the Kennedy assassination proved. It is the CIA and the military industrial complex that has the real power in the US and the people are merely an abstraction for them that must serve the state and not the other way around.

Useless US Fourth Estate

As Mr. Corbett writes the mass media in the US is completely useless in performing the function of the Fourth Estate. This has been said hundreds of times before, he is not the only one saying this, and the case of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks bears this out. The US corporate mass media is bought and paid for and is merely a propaganda tool for the US military industrial complex, bankers and the US Government which they now own.

Medea Benjamin recently put it this way in a VoR interview: "… there is not a lot of information through the mainstream channels that can educate the American people and just to circle back to the issue of Guantanamo I would think that if there would be a poll done that most Americans wouldn't even know that we still have people in Guantanamo. They probably think everybody there was let go, it has been shut down or if they thought that anybody was left it is because they have been tried and convicted and happened to be the worst of the worst which is not true at all. So, unfortunately I think that a lot of the reasons that the Administration can get away with policies like this is because the US mainstream media has not been doing its job."

Ex NSA analyst Wayne Madsen recently told me that even Ted Turner, the founder of CNN admitted that the entire mass media is "messed up" in the US. Mr. Madsen stated: "Ted Turner told me himself, at the United Nations a few years ago that if it had to do it all over again, he wouldn't have gotten into that deal with Time Warner and AOL, that destroyed the network but it is too late. So, CNN can attack me all day long. Its founder told me that 'they are screwed up', so I will take his word over Wolf Blitzer or any of those clowns at CNN, I will take Ted Turner's word over anything they have to say."This was predicted by John F Kennedy in one of his most famous speeches to the US media. The military industrial complex has taken over.

Recently Jessica Raddack, none other than a legal advisor for Edward Snowden, recently told me in an interview that Snowden did not take 1.7 million files as the world media are reporting, yet not one single media outlet picked up on that fact because it runs counter to the official US Government lie. Nor has any media taken issue with the fact that all of the Snowden revelations are approved by the US Government first. Ms. Raddack, perhaps unintentionally also let it be known that all of the journalists who are publishing Snowden's "revelations" are running them by the US Government first: "Well, in terms of 1.7 million number, I've seen that a couple of times and it is coming from the government. And as far as I know Mr. Snowden, according to the journalists who received the documents, the number is really 55,000. I'm not sure if that refers to 55,000 pages or files, but the number is far less than 1.7 million. And this is a first time I have heard that 1.7 million pertain to military documents, ongoing military operations, JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command) and things of that nature. I am not aware of the content of the remaining files and I'm not worried about any damage resulting because the documents were all given to respectable journalists here in the US who have been carefully writing these articles and running them by the government for approval before they are released."

So there you go. Even the NSA leaks are controlled.

Whistleblowers

The NSA and the US Government, rather than protecting their public from terrorists and upholding the law and the rights of its citizens (I won't even mention abiding by international law) are instead engaged in, as I have already mentioned, operations to hide and obfuscate their own illegality. This is something no doubt the American taxpayer would not agree to. This is why they have waged a war on journalists and whistleblowers.

Regardless of Mr. Snowden's real "mission" as he keeps saying he has "accomplished his mission" yet nothing much has changed, other than the entire world now thinking the NSA is capable of spying on everyone and has complete control of the internet (perhaps that was his mission?) he is seen as a whistleblower and is apparently hunted by the US Government, just the latest in a long list of enemies of the US. There has to be a point when the world and the US public wake up and say enough is enough, and that is what the NSA and FEMA and the rest of the US apparatus are truly afraid about.

How many years is poor Mr. Julian Assange going to live in an embassy room? How many years is Edward Snowden not going to be allowed to return to his beloved America? How many years is the illegal detention of the human beings at Guantanamo going to continue? How long are they going to continue to hold Bradley Manning, Jeremy Hammond and the rest? How long is the world going to have to ignore the illegal Guantanamo torture prison and the illegal wars and crimes against humanity? Forever? Unfortunately that is what they want and once the complete control of the world media is obtained (including an end to this journalist who has struggled to give a platform to whistleblowers and truth seekers) and the entire planet is within range of NATO nuclear warheads, that is what they will have. Complete impunity until the end of time and a populace plugged into their devices ogling Britney Spears and Lady Gaga.

Damage Control

The media is completely complicit and there is almost no way to fight them then they control everything

Media operations Raddack

Note from the author:

As this article deals with the NSA and the US Government and the US corporate controlled mass media with reference to globalists and big banking and monied interests it is very unlikely that it will go viral or even obtain a normal place in Google so I kindly ask: Dear reader if you are reading this you probably look for alternative sources of information because you know everything the mass media feeds you is tainted and much of it is untrue, please share with anyone you think needs to hear the truth, no matter how ugly it might be.

Thanks,

The Economist's Rabid Hate of President Putin - By John Robles

1 February, 01:54  http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Vladimir_Putin.html

The Economist and their rabid hate of President Putin

As the Olympic games approach the American media just cannot seem to get enough of demonizing Russia and rolling out their tired old stereotypes and continue to do so on such a scale that it should be getting ridiculous even for the people that the US media is apparently writing for, namely the under informed and non too worldly. One thing is sure however when the demonizing of other countries starts, especially Russia, you can have no doubt that there are serious problems at home and a distraction is desperately needed. Normally, as history has shown, a new humanitarian resource war is begun on some far off poor little country as was planned in Syria, but alas launching the Hellfires was not to be. So they pull out all of the old tired Cold War clichés and xenophobic stereotypes and sling the falsehoods, half-truths and lies like only the American Murdoch owned media can.

Why does it seem that Americans are obsessed with our President Vladimir Putin? Could it be that he is a strong leader whose policies and actions match his words? Or perhaps Americans really are sore because President Putin stopped the invasion of Syria? Maybe it is not the American people who hate Putin so much but the government controlled media, regardless if they are playing to their base or attempting to manipulate public opinion the latest hit by the Economist is truly in poor taste and playing to the lowest common denominator (no link sorry).

Apparently the Economist has lost all journalistic ethics if it ever had them with a new cover featuring a poor Photoshop job of a falling skater and President Putin. The photo and the article both have one thing in common they are full of fake “data”. It si quite remarkable, and extremely telling that the article in question is unauthored. It is nothing more than a hit piece that would be laughable if it weren’t for the fact that the American public might believe the false points it makes while being led into ignoring the catastrophe that is the Obama Administration and their own government.

The first sentence gives away the intention of the writer (anonymous) by saying Russia won a competition to “stage” the Olympics. Strange yet when the US does it they are “held” or “hosted”. The “writer” then improperly quotes President Putin and ridicules the fact that others “heed” Russia and that Mother Russia can “stand up for itself”. Could this be due to the end of US hegemony in much of the world? As for standing up for itself, sure the US only loves countries that are broken or weak and cannot defend themselves. If you doubt then why is it that the US always forces small countries to disarm and prove they have no weapons before moving in and destroying the country and killing the president? Kind of hard to do with Russia so of course they are indignant.

The “writer” then says the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin has had a good year because the western organized and backed protests have somehow disappeared, failing to mention this was after NGOs were required to become transparent and show where their funds were coming from and USAID was expelled. Not to mentioned the failed color revolution plans of certain US functionaries that completely fell flat on their faces.

Yes the Russophobes and the lunatic fringe are angry, Russia is hosting what looks to be a very successful Olympics and the Russian economy is on the rise and Russia has made the world a multi-polar place again. They know the days of their empire are over and no matter how much they rattle their sabers and scream terrorism no one is really listening.

In the article the “writer” laments that the US missiles were not allowed to fly in Syria proving that he/she is obviously oblivious to the suffering that US missiles bring around the world and has obviously never seen the results of US “humanitarian” intervention as he/she derides and makes little of our president for preventing the US from destroying Syria.

The person (idiot) who wrote the thing thinks brokering peace and destroying chemical weapons is something bad and has the nerve to compare the US catastrophe and loss in Afghanistan with the assistance that was requested and then granted to that country by the USSR. He also obviously does not know that almost all Afghan infrastructure was built by the USSR and then destroyed by US/NATO. But that is okay fact don’t appear to be part of the debate in the American media.

The “writer” also has no idea what is really going on in Ukraine and does not have any idea that a country might make a sovereign decision and of its own will say no to America and the West. He/she derides the President of Russia on Ukraine because Europeans looked “flat-footed”, ignoring the fact that if they in fact did, they made themselves look that way themselves. As did Victoria Nuland handing out cookie to street hooligans. He/she obviously does not know the math either, Ukraine had a choice of $1 billion over 7 years by signing the EU deal or $100 billion over the same period by joining the Russian led Customs Union.

The “writer” derides President Putin for positive economic growth in Russia and even for raising standards of living and paid pensions. Simply shameless. He of course does not mention the desperate situation that his own president has brought about and the fact that Americans cannot even afford health care and the military industrial complex and big corporations want to steal Social Security from the old and Food Stamps from the poor and the lives of American have never been worse or more desperate with no outlook for the future.

The rest of the “article” is full of pseudo economic arguments that do not wash and are not even worth countering or repeating but the last one is rich and almost as good as the promotion of fracking described as how America will take over the world. The “writer” also ignores that recent American government shut down and that the paper that dollars are printed on are worth more than the figures on them and that the US is effectively bankrupt, well not effectively, literally, and has been for a long time, and not only economically but also morally.

As you see I have had the manners not to smear Obama. Every American already knows he is a complete failure and guilty of war crimes, why rub it in?

I will not publish my article anonymously and will even include my e-mail address:jar2@list.ru. Have a nice day. Really!

Luke Harding "Targeting" Snowden: Plagiarist, CIA/NSA/MI6 and Media Manipulation

4 February, 14:56 http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Luke_Harding.html

Constant targets of Western media operations conducted by the special services are of course whistleblowers, Hacktivists, truth seekers, 9/11 truthers, anyone who is active in attempting to expose US and western government illegality and, due to his leaks and celebrity status, Edward Snowden, and everybody connected to him.

One of the most shameless attempts as of late at discrediting and making money off lies and half truths was made by what many thought was an stand up publication called the Guardian. Through the use of a serial plagiarizer they published and are promoting a book about Edward Snowden although the author has never had contact with Mr. Snowden. Egregious? Disgusting? Business as usual? You decide.

I am writing a book about you. The inside story on your life and your dealings and who stands behind you. I will make a million dollars off the book and I will claim to know all your deepest and darkest secrets. Even though we have never met I will not contact you or interview you or even attempt to speak with those close to you. Yet I am an expert on your life, and will tell the world all about you. Along with my book I will give interviews on the radio and on television and tell the world all about you and there is nothing you can do because you can’t. You are trapped in your own little world and your life is part of the public record so you can not touch me and you can not sue me or even protest. We have never met but that is not important, I will make up whatever I need, and I will not pay you a penny as I exploit you and your life. Sound scary? Weird? Ridiculous? Unbelievable? You bet! But that is exactly what the Guardian's plagiarizer-Russophobe-hater-of-truth, copy and paste "award winning journalist" Luke Harding has done to Edward Snowden.

What is Luke Harding?

Award winning insipid venomous perennial Russia hater and one of the few western journalists to ever be expelled from the Russian Federation, Luke Harding, who I have taken to task before for his insidious, factually-challenged, horrendously disgusting and completely biased articles about Russia, yet who claims to be a "Russia expert", has recently published another book called "The Snowden Files" about something he also knows nothing about, this time the inside story on Edward Snowden.

His "work" if we can call it that, and any intelligent individual out there can easily access it and analyze it themselves has one constantly underlining theme: demonize Russia and its president, and one underlining method; take anything you can find and spin it to match that meme.

In this regard it is thus almost obvious that the individual is performing a function and that someone behind the scenes is pulling the strings. With the case of the "The Snowden Files" this attempt at either spinning, misconstruing facts or claiming to have inside knowledge is so blatantly obvious that any thinking person can see the strings being pulled. In this regard the "book" is a so poorly constructed that is exposes more about the people behind it than the person it attempts to have intimate knowledge about.

As for the "author", and his material says this more than anything, he is a mere instrument for continued for the dissemination of Russo phobia, anti-Russia/Putin propaganda and obviously has little regard for journalistic ethics, sourcing and all of the other issues that real journalists are concerned about.

So what is the hack writer and why would he publish books claiming to have inside information on people he has never met (The Snowden Files), publish outlandish right wing talking points and claims demonizing Russia and President Putin (The Mafia State) and take part in hits jobs (The Fifth Estate) on organizations such as WikiLeaks which he knows nothing about? There are two possibilities: either he is just a profiteer looking to make a buck or he is employed in carrying out carefully orchestrated disinformation operations for the security services. If the latter is true then it shows that UK security's standards have definitely fallen.

The Guardian: Independent Media?

Glen Greenwald was one of Edward Snowden’s choices as a journalist he felt he could trust and one with a good reputation who called the above writer's latest book "The Inside Story of Edward Snowden by Someone Who Never Met or Spoke With Edward Snowden", but did Snowden know that the Guardian would then abandon him when the stuff-hit-the-fan in Hong Kong or that they would try to blatantly just try to make a profit off his story? Well, sadly, at the end of the day for the corporate mass media outlets it is all about the money and only about the money.

The Guardian, while many believed it to be a beacon of truth and to have fair and more liberal views is after all is said and done simply a commercial publication, and its writers do not really have a chance to practice "real journalism" without the constraints corporate sponsors, selling papers, pleasing the security services or the paper’s customers.

The Guardian was a respectable publication once and at least maintained a modicum of being a champion of the truth, or so at least I thought, especially when I defended its Editor in Chief Alan Rusbridger when he was grilled by a UK Parliamentary Committee regarding the Snowden material. So why he would have someone like Luke Harding in his employ is beyond me. Why would he publish a book claiming to be have inside information on Snowden from a writer who already participated in the hit job flop called The Fifth Estate about WikiLeaks? Another expert inside view from someone with a personal beef and irrelevant information and connections. Maybe the Guardian is being duped? Or could it just be that it is all about the money?

Maybe Rusbridger and Guardian are being blackmailed by the security services? After all Rusbridger and the Guardian are looking at terrorism related charges with regard to the Snowden material. That of course is all conjecture but within the realm of possibility.

Of course there are displeased members of the West's power elite and surveillance establishment who want to do anything to discredit and taint the Guardian's reputation (but it has done that itself) for having the audacity to have anything to do with Snowden. And then there are the continuing attempts to discredit Snowden and to damage his relationship with Russia.

Reaction from the Principals

WikiLeaks (who I am awaiting a comment from as I wrote Mr. Hrafnsson at 4 am or so his time and no doubt he was sleeping) is calling for a boycott of the book. The WikiLeaks organization first stated: "Guardian hacks who abandoned Snowden in Hong Kong are now attempting to make millions off his back. It should be noted that only Mr. Snowden and WikiLeaks have the inside story, Guardian abandoned him in Hong Kong. The Guardian's recycling of an anti-WikiLeaks anti-Russian plagiarist into profiteering off the Snowden situation is the last straw. Snowden has never spoken to Luke Harding. Harding, a proven plagiarist, is trying to cash in on book/film rights, as he did with WikiLeaks. Russia has its share of problems but Harding is so hostile that he may destabilize Snowden's asylum renewal."

WikiLeaks was a little less conspiratorial than I in their initial assessment pointing mainly to the financial motivations but there are other matters on the agenda and those involve CIA, MI6 and their masters in Washington, who we are aware will stop at nothing to get Mr. Snowden. However, I dare say WikiLeaks overestimates Harding’s effectiveness. Russia and the Russian Security Services are usually ahead of the curve when it comes to these kinds of "information operations" and there is almost no chance whatsoever that a well known and expelled Russia-hater (no matter how venomous anything he could muster might be) could do or say to change or damage the opinion of official Moscow with regard to Mr. Snowden. Moscow is well aware at how CIA/MI6 and all their underlings operate and how they attempt to demonize and marginalize those who they views as enemies, this is a moot point.

These attempts only serve to support Mr. Snowden's claims even more and other than getting more people in the West to possibly hate Mr. Snowden the continued information operations against Mr. Snowden will no doubt backfire. But just like the US annulling Mr. Snowden's passport while he was overseas forcing him to seek asylum (an orchestrated plot?) we have seen time and time again that the US Government is really behind the curve on how to get their man.

Later WikiLeaks did point to more nefarious motivations behind the Guardian/Harding operation stating: "This is the "2nd attempt in as many weeks by the Guardian to undermine Snowden's character. Neither Snowden, nor WikiLeaks has ever spoken to Luke Harding. The book is unattributed re-writes of press reports."

Which if one looks at snippets available on the Guardian's website is clearly the case. So has the Guardian been duped by a hack writer who operates with his own agenda or is the Guardian part of the plan?

WikiLeaks says: "The Guardian, who abandoned Snowden in Hong Kong, is giving Snowden's defense zero percent of the proceeds from their cash-in book. Boycott it."

Elegant solution and perhaps if the hack writer is guilty of bringing about another "flop" his possibilities for spreading his vitriol will be limited by market forces.

MI6 Hunting Snowden

In a recent article on the Voice of Russia it was detailed how MI6 is desperate to rendition Mr. Snowden, Wayne Madsen, who I interviewed recently stated: "… the British government seems to be the most interested in renditioning Snowden than its other partners of the FIVE EYES, which, besides, the US, includes Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The British are willing to catch Snowden mostly out of urge to get back at him for "the alleged damage his revelations caused British electronic surveillance operations around the world’ rather than a ‘desire to ingratiate Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters (GHCQ) and Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) with their American counterparts’, the NSA and CIA, respectively."

Lies Lies Lies - Jesselyn Radack

Jesselyn Radack a legal advisor for Mr. Snowden recently told me that the US was manipulating the media and telling outright lies about Mr. Snowden in particular to claims that he took over 1.7 million files: "I would say the 1.7 million number materialized out of nowhere. In fact, I don't know how the government, the US government, came up with that considering they have admitted they don't know how much information he took – number one. And also if you look at this whole scandal, over and over and over again the US has lied and lied and lied even before Congress on camera, under oath. And Mr. Snowden has not. Mr. Snowden has told the truth, the US government has lied over and over and over again and every week we have a new rumor, we have to try to quash that the US puts out."

Information War: Truth vs. Orchestrated Media Operations

Personally, as a writer, I can say it is a pleasure working and writing for the Voice of Russia. Mainly because management basically gives me two rules: tell the truth and don’t be too hard, because as my readers know I can be brutal at times. The reason I am letting you in on that little secret is because it bears a striking contrast to what is going on at many western publications. If you are a regular reader of mine, you know that I often take publications, media outlets and journalists to task when they try to twist the truth about Russia, promote Russo phobia, tell outright lies, obfuscate, or write particularly odious pieces about this country or other important issues that are of major concern, as was the case with the Economist recently and their "anonymous" Russia/Putin smear in their latest issue.

So is the western media merely an instrument of the security services, the banks and other monied and powerful special interests and do the special services plant people in media outlets to control and manipulate the flow of information? You bet they do and it has gotten so bad that the world is currently divided into two types of people, those who seek the truth and those who blindly believe the mass media which is fed lies by the intelligence services according to former MI6 officer David Shayler.

David Shayler

I recently spoke to David Shayler regarding the issue of media manipulation by the special servicesand he stated the following: "You've got to look at all this stuff and it is all a distraction, and all the stuff that goes on the main-stream, all these people who come on from these so-called defense experts and so on, they are just in the pay of the intelligence services, they are just out there to put out propaganda, and it is in the interests of these private security services to put these messages out there, and in principle because that is how they make their money."

"It is like there is this division going on on the planet at the moment – the nonsense that goes on on the mainstream and the truth, which you can get at by using the Internet."

Will the US ever forget Snowden and leave him alone? Not likely. According to Mr. Shayler: "… these people they never forget. And as I say they will only be happy when people are either dead or they’ve given up the fight basically. That’s what they want. So, if you constantly keep protesting in a meaningful way, in an effective way, not in just going through the motions. You know, you keep getting under their skin and that works you know."

Michael John Smith on Harding Op

I recently asked Michael John Smith, the last person prosecuted for spying for the USSR in the world about how the special services manipulate the media and plant operatives in media outlets, something that happened in his case and he provided a written response on the issue answering thus: "I can’t comment on whether Luke Harding may be working for the intelligence services or not. We have some very strict libel laws in the UK and he might consider my opinion libellous. What I can say is that there are journalists who have been known to be MI5 or MI6 agents working in the UK media, and their involvement with the intelligence services is usually fairly obvious by the sort of material that they include in their articles. Heavily biased opinions supporting a particular agenda will often stand out as being influenced by MI5 or MI6, and we have previously discussed the role of somebody like Oleg Gordievsky as playing such a role in the media, where an anti-Russian bias is evident."

"But I would like to draw your attention to David Rose, who is a good example of how the intelligence services use an apparently normal journalist to spread their propaganda into the media. According to Rose he was recruited by MI6 in May 1992, and he later admitted his involvement as their agent in an article he wrote for the New Statesman magazine in September 2007."

"In 1999 David Rose had an important role in publicising information about the then recently disclosed Mitrokhin Archive, and it is significant to know that at that time he was already an MI6 agent. The intelligence services want the general public to absorb certain details as “the truth”, but they do not want the readers to discover that the articles their hack journalists write are merely propaganda to brainwash the public."

"I first became aware of David Rose when he had been tasked to approach Melita Norwood in 1999 - she was the woman who had been exposed as a spy for the Soviet Union. Rose went to interview Norwood and extracted a confession from her, when she admitted to him that she had been a Soviet agent. Rose refers to this meeting in one of his articles".

"One of the anomalies of Stella Rimington's book: "Open Secret: the Autobiography of the Former Director General of MI5" is that she never mentions anything about Vasili Mitrokhin, which is odd as it was such a big issue during Rimington’s period in office. It is even more incredible to me that Rimmington never referred to my case in her book either, especially as this was the biggest espionage event that led up to her becoming Director General of MI5.”

"To try to resolve some of my questions I wrote to David Rose in 2001, asking for his assistance to expose errors in the Mitrokhin Archive about my case. However, Rose went out of his way to mislead by warning me not to pursue my request for access to the original Mitrokhin material. This is the reply David Rose sent me in November 2001: "I can tell you I got to know Mitrokhin well and I understand from conversations both with him and with other, confidential sources, that there was indeed material in his files which related to your case. However, I ought to warn you that were you to acquire access to it through some form of the legal disclosure process, it might not be at all helpful to you. I cannot assist you as to any of its details, nor can I give “chapter and verse” as to the conversations I’ve had about you and Mitrokhin. But I am certain that this material exists, and that those behind your prosecution must be aware of its nature."

"With the knowledge that Rose was acting on behalf of MI6 for about a decade or more, it is now very clear who gave him the order to reply to me in this way, and the intention must have been to avoid the risk that important errors in the Mitrokhin Archive would be exposed by my lawyers in Court."

"There was no reference anywhere in my trial (1993) or appeal (1995) to the existence of evidence obtained from Mitrokhin. However, only days after my arrest in August 1992, during interrogation by British Special Branch Police, the head of the investigating team told me that they were in possession of information from Russian “archival leaks”. This must have been a reference to Mitrokhin, but I was given no opportunity to challenge the source behind the Police questions."

Real dissenting views not heard on BBC

On a BBC radio chat called Start Week, titled: "Spying and Surveillance: The Snowden Files" Former Director of GCHQ David Omand spoke to Mr. Harding, which just to shows that Mr. Harding no matter how vile he is is only fulfilling the agenda for the state because you do not get on the BBC if you have a real dissenting view. David Shayler has said it, Smith has said and even a former UK Ambassador named Craig Murray who questioned rendition flights internally can not get on the BBC. We won’t even talk about the media blackout on poor trapped Julian Assange.

AMB Craig Murray

Regarding his multiple bans from appearing on the BBC: "They usually do it quite subtly. I am very frequently called by BBC producers of individual programs. They called me up saying "Oh we would like you on the news at 10 o'clock or whatever," and then about 10 minutes later I get a phone call saying "Oh no, we have had to cancel you." 

"And this has happened to me 60 or 70 times in a row, not once or twice, this has happened again and again and again."

"The program producer calls you up and books you, and then 10 minutes later they have to phone back and unbook you because at some point in the system a banning order has come into effect."

Undermining leaders, demonizing Russia

Part of western intelligence operations focus on media manipulation and one constant target since Soviet times has been Russia. Another widely used methods for toppling regimes and undermining leaders we have seen in the western media portrayal of President Putin and now the president of Ukraine. With the Olympics coming up we have seen an increase in anti-Russian propaganda and while the focus is still on Russia and Mr. Snowden, publishing a demonizing book serves two purposes and Mr. Harding can get rich in the process. I agree with WikiLeaks. Boycott it.

Thankfully for us here in Russia, and that includes Mr. Snowden, Russia's intrepid security service, the FSB, is busy guaranteeing security and not playing media manipulation games, and you can take that to the bank.

American Insult to WWII Monument a Sign of Ignorance and Demonization of Russia

7 February, 11:06  http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Russia.html

American insult to WWII monument a sign of ignorance

US broadcaster CNN, which for all intents and purposes has been leading the anti-Russia US propaganda effort to denigrate and attempt to take away Russia's prestige as the Russian Federation hosts the Olympic Games in Sochi is apparently stopping at nothing in their effort to insult Russia and the Russian people.

The latest offending remarks came in a "list" of the world's ugliest monuments and concerns the Courage Monument at the Brest Hero-Fortress Complex in the Republic of Belarus.

The objective of such egregious comments is clear, as is the bad taste, and indignation over the blasphemous remarks is also completely understandable but what may be hard for Russians and the international audience to understand is the psychology of the American people and their own lack of any normal respect or indignation over such offensive remarks.

Quite frankly the pathetic ignorant American propaganda effort to demonize Russia is something that shows that they are to be pitied and points to the lack of intelligence prevalent in their mindless society.

CNN has in fact apologized for the listing, giving a glib reasoning but has not removed the proud and heroic monument from its ridiculous list showing the recalcitrant and transparently obtuse endemic American penchant for unapologetically "sticking to their guns" even when what they are doing is offensive and has been proven to be wrong and in this case absolutely callously ignorant.

The reaction to the "listing" has been almost completely united against the broadcaster across the board with bloggers condemning CNN for their "bile" and "ignorance," the Head of the Russian Presidential Human Rights Council Mikhail Fedotov saying it was an inappropriate joke and that such things cannot be joked about, the administration of the Brest Hero-Fortress complex saying the listing was blasphemy and demanding CNN officially apologize and the even the Moscow Helsinki Group's head Lyudmila Alexeyeva saying that the monument is one to heroes whom we cherish greatly and that she was sorry it is seen this way.

CNN should remove the listing and apologize to every country on it but that is not the American way. They are recalcitrant in their own self-propagated endemic exceptionalism which is such an integral part of American society that perhaps it cannot be removed without killing the patient and they will certainly never sincerely apologize.

Having been raised and educated from elementary school to the university level in the US and in fact being an educator myself for almost two decades I can say with utmost certainty that the American educational system and the US media promotes myths, institutionally implements omissions and spreads falsehoods about the Great Patriotic War, known in the West as World War II. Hence it is normal for the populace to see their broadcasters insulting monuments to WWII heroes in other countries. But this is not the sole reason and I will get into that in a minute.

To hide US collusion with the Nazis, even after the war when over 40,000 of them were given refuge in the US, and to glorify their own small effort in the war, Americans and many countries in the West are taught and continue to believe that it was the US and its "allies" that won World War II on the Western Front. Nowhere do American historical textbooks (and if I am wrong and some have been updated please e-mail me) fairly portray the effort of the USSR in winning the war on the Eastern Front. For it was won on the Eastern Front, the West's D-Day was for all intents and purposes a mopping up operation on the Western Front and mere support for the Soviet Forces, I would boldly state with the historical record on my side and the numbers clearly support and prove this point.

The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) lost more than 28 million people in their heroic effort to rid the world of the nazi [sic] scourge and blood flowed all over its territory. In contrast the US lost about 400 thousand which is about how many Italy lost and less than half of what Yugoslavia lost but is still worthy of mentioning, but to say they won the war is an egregious lie and historical revisionism. Of which the US is clearly unapologetically guilty but which follows the endemic US belief that for some reason their lives are worth more than the lives of others. This belief is founded on their own exceptionalism, the genocidal nature of the basis of the “American” state, their endemic racism and their long history of enslavement and exploitation of other peoples.

Another key reason why Americans can be so callous as to ignorantly insult monuments to heroes who defeated the nazi scourge is that for Americans war is an abstraction, something that happens to others, in faraway lands and to strange and "foreign" people. And this fact can be no more clearer than the American outcry when "American boys" start coming home in body bags or beautifully flag covered coffins. Rarely if ever is there an outcry if some poor Afghan family is droned into oblivion, this on the other hand is seen as normal.

Americans have never faced and enemy on "their" territory (other than fighting the French, English and Spanish for stolen Indian lands) and they have never seen their cities destroyed, or their neighbors butchered, or their daughters raped, or their people slaughtered. Blood has never flown on their territory as it did in Belarus and Russia and all of Europe and as it is flowing in Iraq and Afghanistan and as it has flowed in all of the other places where the US has committed it "sanitary" remote "humanitarian" wars such as Yugoslavia, Serbia, Libya and the over 70 other countries the US has destroyed.

Yes there is a complete disconnect in America, for them war is something that they wage from bunkers in California, from hundreds of miles away, using robotic drones where there is not even a real pilot involved in the process. No real witness to the murder and bloodshed they are carrying out and absolutely no risk to themselves.

Which is why 9/11 was such a shock for Americans that even to this day they refuse to believe that it was their own government who committed or was complicit in the "events" of that fateful day.

The world has looked away from the fact that America is a country founded by invaders who stole the lands and committed genocide on the peaceful Indian Nations that called it their home for thousands of years. "America" is a stolen country founded on the blood of over 400 million Indian lives, so their callousness towards other peoples is understandable and their disregard for the lives of the people they eradicate in their “humanitarian” wars is also understandable. But that does not make anything about it right or justifiable.

"Americans" have never had to fight for or defend their homeland, on the contrary the ancestors of "Americans" cowardly fled their own homelands and committed genocide to steal a new one. So it is understandable that the ancestors of British filth and genocidal maniacs are taught to ignore and even glorify the deeds of their forefathers who built a country on blood and used slaves to do it. But that also does not make it right.

America is a nation that feeds on and glorifies violence and death and destruction, even from the cartoons children watch from the earliest of ages, so it is also understandable why they can denigrate a monument to heroes who died and gave their lives to fight the nazi scourge. One might say that the nazis and their racist genocidal war of extermination is much closer to American history than any American is comfortable admitting. Just change the names and the era around a little bit and the situations are the same.

As for monuments I personally think Mount Rushmore is an abomination, the complete defacement of a mountain on land where the Indians put up one of their last and most heroic fights. Completely inappropriate and historically egregious, but of course a sign of the "victors."

As for other American monuments in my personal opinion the Washington Monument is completely lacking in any creative, artistic or appealing esthetics, a boring overbearing obelisk polluting the sky, but again that is my opinion. The Statue of Liberty on the other hand is quite appealing but that was a gift from the French. The St. Louis arch is also not much of a wonder and the stench inside is enough to make the eyes water and the most memorable thing about being inside of it, I could go on but I won’t. I would not want the Americans to demand I apologize. Which I will do now in advance as I am sure "Americans" are sorry for committing genocide on my people. I am sorry the designers of your monuments were so austere and lacking in creativity. As for your monuments to those killed in your wars I will not have the bad taste to denigrate them, but perhaps you do not care America, after all you built new buildings on the site where 3,000 of your own countrymen died.

Native Americans to Stop Keystone Pipeline

7 February, 20:00 http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Indigenous.html

Native Americans to stop Keystone pipeline

It is an issue that has galvanized Native Americans, environmentalists, activists and even the Green Party and is not one that is going to go away as conveniently as the Obama Administration hopes it will. The Trans Canada Keystone XL (Export Limited) Pipeline, which will destroy and poison huge swathes of Indian lands and irreversibly pollute large parts of Alberta, Canada and the United States all the way to the Gulf of Mexico should also be galvanizing Canadians but they are for the large part silent. Will Obama and Washington politicians beholden to corporate and big oil interests do the right thing and say no to the pipeline? Not likely.

The Reality

The effects of oil exploitation from the tars sands is already being felt and things are only getting worse for the Native Americans. People are dying women are having miscarriages and the people cannot farm or even find clean drinking water. What is left of the once great and proud nations and tribes of North America are again fighting for their very survival as the Earth around them is being destroyed.

According to Robert Free, an Indian rights activist and a member of Tewa and Naua Nations in an interview with the Voice of Russia ”They can’t drink that water that was from the lake of Athabasca or Peace River because upstream is the tar sands of Alberta that is polluting all that beautiful area. So, they can’t even eat the fish, they are having miscarriages and nothing is being done for that.”

So oil company sponsored environmental reports saying the Keystone Pipeline is safe are a laughable farce when the reality is that they are already killing thousands and destroying water supplies and lands that the Indians, and all of us, depend on for existence.

Native Americans Rise Up

The Indians of the seven tribes of the Lakota Nation and tribes from Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Oregon, as well as dozens of other organizations and Indian Nations are preparing to stop the construction of the pipeline.

In a statement released by the organizations Honor the Earth, Owe Aku, Protect the Sacred and the Oglala Sioux Nation the Native Americans make their position clear and it is one that concerns their very survival as the project will for the most part destroy Indian Lands and violates existing treaties.

The statement reads in part: “The Oglala Lakota Nation has taken leadership by saying “NO” to the Keystone XL Pipeline. They have done what is right for the land, for their people, who, from grassroots organizers like Owe Aku and Protect the Sacred have called on their leaders to stand and protect their sacred lands. And they have: KXL will NOT cross their treaty territory, which extends past the reservation boundaries. Their horses are ready. So are ours. We stand with the Lakota Nation, we stand on the side of protecting sacred water, we stand for Indigenous land-based lifeways which will NOT be corrupted by a hazardous, toxic pipeline. WE ALL NEED TO STAND WITH THEM.”

“On Friday, January 27th, the State Department issued its Environmental Impact Statement on the Keystone XL Pipeline. President Obama said that he won’t approve the pipeline if it increases carbon emissions. The report was drafted in coordination with consultants who have worked for TransCanada — the company seeking to build the pipeline. Jack Gerard, the head of the American Petroleum Institute, was briefed by “sources within the administration” on the timing and content of the report before its release, and was pleased to say that it will not impact the environment.”

At the heart of the debate is that the pipeline violates treaties signed with the Indians. According to the statement the Lakota Nation is a sovereign governmental body which is united against the pipeline, and “the United States needs to honor treaty rights by denying the pipeline.”The US Government is a serial violator of treaties, not only with the Indian Nations but also on the international level and also believes itself to be above international law so this call will most likely be scoffed at by Washington and any gains made by the Indians will have to come at a heavy price.

The statement cites a real and proven conflict of interest with yet another “environmental study” sanctioned by oil companies to further their own ends. Independent sources support the position of the Native Americans that: “the pipeline will increase carbon emissions and cause grave and irreversible environmental harm globally.”

Regardless of any study the pipeline will impact Indian Lands and this is entirely their decision under law. However the recalcitrant corporate controlled US Government will no doubt do everything to get its own way. False environmental reports are nothing to a government who will murder, attack countries and destroy millions for oil, resources and corporate gain.

The statement by the Indians underlines the responsibility of the native people to protect Mother Earth, says that they will not allow the pipeline to cross treaty areas and that they will defend their lives and our mother Earth, and calls on Barack Obama to do the same. However it is a call on deaf ears as Obama has proven by his record that he is an instrument of the corporations, has no respect for treaties or international law and at the end of the day will do as he pleases. Asking a man who laughs it up and takes selfies at the funeral of one of the last great leaders of bygone age is like asking a New York cop not to write you a ticket or a Guantanamo interrogator not to torture you.

Greens

The Green Party says that the bi-partisan rhetoric of Washington politicians about energy independence is completely without basis and the final destination of the pipeline, at major shipping ports in the gulf of Mexico, only proves that the oil is destined for export to foreign markets and thus will enrich the oil companies.

According to the site Green Party Watch Darryl L.C. Moch, the co-chair of the Green Party of the US said that: “President Obama is standing at a crossroads right now. He can say no to the Keystone XL pipeline and prove that his administration is serious about reducing production and consumption of fossil fuels. Or he can satisfy Big Oil and major investors by okaying the pipeline’s conveyance of dirty, dangerous tar-sands crude oil from Canada across the US”.

I would say the Green Party’s pleas will also fall on deaf ears as the US is ready to destroy and poison trillions of gallons of un-renewable fresh water in their bid to spread the practice of fracking and again Obama has proven he is an instrument of corporations and has done nothing to lessen dependence on fossil fuels and it can be almost said to be a given that he will not. Like his Nobel Peace Prize it is not an issue that particularly means or matters to him at all.

The Green Party goes on to state on their site: “The Green Party has strongly opposed the pipeline and is urging the Secretary of State John Kerry and the State Dept., as well as other agencies, to reject it.”

“The goal of domestic ‘energy independence’ is a distraction from the real goal - ending subsidies for fossil fuels and averting a global climate catastrophe in the coming decades,” said Kate Culver, co-chair of the Green Party of the United States.

“The bipartisan rhetoric of energy dependence proves that Democrats and Republicans are too beholden to corporate contributions and lobbyists’ influence to effectively deal with the climate crisis. This is why we call the Green Party an imperative for the 21st century,” added Audrey Clement, co-chair of the Green Party’s Eco-Action Committee

“The development of the tar-sands oil fields in Alberta, Canada, is one of several energy-industry projects that must be halted. Others include fracking, mountaintop detonation mining, offshore drilling in U.S. coastal waters, and “clean coal.” The Elk River chemical spill on Jan. 9, which left 300,000 West Virginians without drinkable or usable water, proved “clean coal” to be a public-relations myth. The spilled chemical was a foam used to wash coal and remove polluting impurities.”

Battle Lines Are Drawn

Writer Jorge Barrera at Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) National News writes that the project will now go into a final phase which focuses on whether Keystone XL serves the US national interest and that at least eight agencies will have input on the outcome, including the Defense Department, the Department of Justice, Interior, Commerce, Transportation, Energy, Homeland Security and the Environmental Protection Agency.

He wrote that the Lakota Nation has formed projects called “Shielding the People” and “Moccasins on the Ground” to stop the pipeline. “It will band all Lakota to live together and you can’t cross a living area if it’s occupied,” said Greg Grey Cloud, of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe. “If it does get approved we aim to stop it.”

Gary Dorr, from the Nez Perce Tribe in Idaho, which has already used its treaty rights to block the transport of so-called megaloads of mining equipment headed to Alberta’s tar sands said the following: “It will be obvious, it will be concrete, and I think once it starts and they start building you will start to see the momentum and the force of the tribal people…it is an epic project, it will have an epic response from the tribal people. The tar sands is already affecting the people (for Fort Chipewyan in Alberta), climate change is already obvious. To facilitate that is not something the Native people of the US are going to do. We are not going to sit idly by and let it happen.”

The pipeline has been called the ‘black snake’ in reference to prophecies

APTN reports that the Oglala Sioux Tribe passed a resolution banning TransCanada and former Assembly of First Nations chief Phil Fontaine, who was a turncoat hired to deal with First Nations opposition, from entering its territory.

According to APTN the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota make up the Lakota Nation which includes the tribes of Rosebud, Oglala and the Cheyenne Indian reservation, the Yankton Sioux Tribe, Standing Rock, Flandreau Sioux Tribe and the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe.

Conclusion

Sadly and the record has shown, the Obama Administration and the US Government are completely under the control of the corporations and given the fact that they are willing to commit crimes against humanity, start wars of aggression and destroy entire countries for the sake of profiting from resources, there is little doubt that American Indians and a few Greens will be able to stop them.

The invaders killed over 400 million Indigenous People in the Americas and continue to profit from resources that belong to the Indians. When they need to they just pass “laws” and “treaties” or declare the Indians not to be human. As Mohawk Elder Kahandinetha Horn told the Voice of Russia: “They passed this law, that declared us non-persons, they take our Indian Trust Fund and they use it to build Canada and now the trust fund is maybe a hundred trillion.”

Yet: “We lack communications and it is very hard for us to contact people around the world to support us because I think people would support us because we are trying to save the environment. That is what we are trying to do. We are here and we are surviving for a reason and that is to be the caregivers of our Mother Earth.”

Will Obama and big oil take care of Mother Earth? Don’t count on it.

Mass Protests Planned Against NSA Mass Surveillence

10 February, 15:04   http://www.jar2.com/Topics/NSA.html

Worldwide protests against NSA led mass surveillance are planned for November 11, 2014 in a protest billed by organizers as “The Day We Fight Back”. Although the protest actions are largely US based and even the countdown clock is timed to US Pacific Time, the on-line activities and protests will affect internet users worldwide as many of the world’s top sites are joining in.

The planned activities on the cyber front are being led by the Internet Defense League, a group of which led the Internet blackout that effectively killed the US Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act, attempts by the US Government to bring the Internet under complete censorship and control. Those protests were successful in permanently shelving SOPA and PIPA and now the hope of the organizers is that tomorrow’s actions will reign in the NSA, and by default its spying network FVEY, and shelve a new bill sponsored by US Senator Dianne Feinstein called the FISA Improvements Act, as well as garner support for what is called the USA Freedom Act and finally enact protections for non-Americans.

In a statement released by the Internet Defense League website the organizers say the new protests are planned in memory of Mr. Aaron Swartz, the creator of RSS technology, one of the founders of Reddit and an Internet activist who was persecuted for sharing taxpayer funded research material from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) JSTOR (Journal Storage) system.

Although the research material and academic journals downloaded by Mr. Swartz were not secret in nature and publically funded, over-zealous prosecutors sought to force Mr. Swartz to pay a $1 million fine and serve 35 years in prison. Mr. Swartz, his lawyers and supporters fought the US Government’s case to no avail and after his second plea bargain offer was denied by prosecutors who sought to make him pay the maximum penalty, Mr. Swartz was found dead in his New York apartment having been persecuted into apparently committing suicide.

Aaron Swartz was instrumental in organizing the anti-SOPA/PIPA protests, which many believe was the real reason the US Government persecuted him on the trumped up charges for downloading academic journals. The US was desperate to prosecute high-profile Hacktivists and in the end, as with many of their heavy handed persecutions, they turned him into a legend and a martyr for the cause of internet freedom and the right of the people to benefit from academic work that they in fact pay for but are not allowed to openly see or use.

The participants of the Day We Fight Back protests so far include such respected organizations as the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the ACLU, the Freedom of the Press Foundation, Reddit, Mozilla and Amnesty International but it is yet to be seen if giants like Google and Wikipedia will be taking part, as of publication it is still not clear.

Two years ago the internet blackout against SOPA/PIPA included the participation of Wikipedia and Google, whose support was instrumental in bringing an end to proposed SOPA/PIPA legislation. That protest, according to SOPA Strike dot com also included the blacking out of sites such as Reddit, Wordpress, Tumblr, Drudge Report, Wired and over 115,000 other sites. The unprecedented resistance to SOPA/PIPA also gathered 10 million signatures on a petition, over 8 million phone calls to legislators, more than 4 million e-mails sent and caused over 1 billion users to be blocked from websites.

The organizers of the February 11th protests say there will not be an internet blackout but that banners will be spread all over the internet and on prominent sites calling for people in the US to call or e-mail the US Congress in protest of the FISA Improvements Act and in support of the USA Freedom Act. Internationally the organizers are asking for supporters of internet freedom to urge their proper authorities to institute privacy protections for Internet users.

In the statement released on the day we fight back dot org, organizers say: “Together we will push back against powers that seek to observe, collect, and analyze our every digital action. Together, we will make it clear that such behavior is not compatible with democratic governance. Together, if we persist, we will win this fight.”

So far there are no calls for international targeting of NSA partners by the organizers and there is no mention of protesting the intelligence organizations which make up the FVEY signals intelligence alliance which are vital for the NSA’s global reach. Realistically for the world’s Internet users protests should also include NSA partners and the signals intelligence organizations of the NSA’s FVEY alliance as well. These include Australia’s Australian Signals Directorate (ASD), Canada’s Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC), New Zealand’s Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) and the United Kingdom’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ).

On a global level protesting the NSA and instituting or opposing US legislation means little or nothing when the NSA’s foreign subordinates are pulling most of the weight for the NSA on the international arena. However this may also point to the NSA’s subordination of its FVEY partners. Tellingly such intrusive surveillance as is being carried by FVEY on its own citizens is not being protested in other countries such as Russia, where the internet remains largely as free as it was at the time of its inception.

US Wars Against Afghanistan and Iraq: Crimes Against Humanity - By John Robles

12 February, 2014 21:07  http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Afghanistan.html

The US has failed miserably in Afghanistan, the way they failed in Iraq, in Vietnam, and in dozens of other places and even though they are finally leaving with their tail between their legs, military "commanders" continue to make bold statements and try to put a positive spin on the fiasco that seem to be disconnected from reality and might cause the average person to question their competence.

It may be difficult for the average American and for citizens of the world to understand those who have launched all of the US wars, in the same way that it is difficult for the sane person to understand the mind and the motivations of a homicidal serial killer, yet if we look closely maybe we can. Or not? These are people who have caused the deaths of millions and for you and I it might be difficult to comprehend why despite the failures in Afghanistan and the price the world is having to pay for their "lessons" they want to continue with their adventure.

For Americans it should be vital to understand why their country is at war, but they are bogged down trying to survive without healthcare, with homes being foreclosed, education becoming privatized and everything growing astronomically expensive. Every day those who still have jobs work and attempt to pay for a gallon of gas at the pump so they can stay employed, the same gallon that was $0.69 in 1980 and is already predicted and forecast to be at over $10.00 by the year 2030, yet few question.

Americans should be concerned, if not for the over 1 million lives that have been brutally extinguished since the "War on Terror" began, including the initial 2,999 of their fellow countrymen and innocent civilians who perished on 9-11, then for the simple economic reason that every household in America, whether they support the unfounded and illegal wars and invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq or not, are going to foot the bill for generations to come as the military adventures started by their leaders will cost every household approximately $75,000.00 so far.

Yes American taxpayer, like it or not, justified or not, you will pay as much as $6 trillion for your government’s illegal invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, that breaks down to the equivalent of $75,000 for every household according to the Harvard University Kennedy School of Government.

Costs of wars

In an article for Global Research Sabir Shah detailed the costs of the US wars which Bush and the wars’ proponents said would pay for themselves through oil revenues. So then why isn’t gas at the pump now $0.30 a gallon but has instead skyrocketed? Ask them.

Overall the illegal wars have cost the US $6 trillion dollars, $2 trillion which they have already borrowed and already paid $260 billion just on the interest of those loans. But the war profiteers don’t care, at the same time they are also giving themselves tax cuts of historic proportions.

Those are just the preliminary financial costs there are also long term costs and the cost in destroyed lives and human suffering that the US tries to ignore.

Of course no one in the US has seriously done any study on how many Afghan lives they have extinguished or destroyed either, but there have been many studies done on the lives of US soldiers that have been affected. According to Global Research approximately 1.56 million US Afghanistan and Iraq veterans are receiving treatment at Veterans Administration Hospitals and will be receiving benefits for the rest of their lives with %50 of all veterans having already applied for permanent disability benefits.

Citing the Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government report Global Research says the US government has already spent $134 billion on medical care and disability benefits and that they will pay out $836 billion more in the coming decades. But that is not the worst thing, according to the Harvard report, even if the warmongers ended their wars in Iraq and Afghanistan it would not help in easing the growing and widespread poverty, unemployment and declining living standards for working people in the US. Quite the opposite, no matter what happens Americans will be paying for the American adventures in Afghanistan and Iraq for many, many decades to come.

Detached from Reality: No Accoutability

Perhaps through no fault of their own but rather because their government has been taken over by war profiteers, the military industrial complex and the security structures that only serve those promoting war for the sake of war, American have lost the backbone to question and the ability to call for accountability.

Putting aside, as Americans love to do, that the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq were crimes against humanity and unprovoked aggressive wars launched on countries that never posed a threat to the US, one of the real insanities of the wars is that the commanders and the wars’ proponents have the audacity to openly discuss the "lessons that are to be learned" over their failed military adventures. As if they were on a training run and their decades of war, the millions of civilians killed, the hundreds of thousands of American soldiers crippled and the decimated US economy were not even worth mentioning.

Lessons Learned ?!?!

In an unapologetic article the site UT San Diego matter-of-factly reports that retired Marine General John Allen and retired Navy Admiral James Stavridis two key former commanders in Afghanistan spoke at a conference dedicated to the "lessons to be learned" from their devastating wars.

Of course the conference itself, the "commanders" and the publication ignore the fact that the US was the cause of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and that these invasions were based on lie after lie, but the remorselessly discuss the "lessons to be learned" as if they are discussing some training exercise and not decades of war that caused millions of deaths.

Perhaps I am mistaken but if someone has the authority to send soldiers off to die and order the invasions of countries they damn well better have already learned their "lessons" and actually know what they are doing.

So what lessons did these commanders learn? Well one is that: "… long-term engagement leveraging multinational alliances is key to global stability, in that country and others from Iraq to the Balkans and China." In other words use your allies in your illegal wars.

The publication calls the aggressive wars which killed millions the "US experience" and says the two commanders "… cautioned against the isolationist streak in American sentiment emerging in the post-Afghanistan, post-Iraq war era." Sure people are beginning to wake up and see the war criminals for what they are and most normal countries do not want to be involved in crimes against humanity and endless resource wars.

Mr. Allen’s Lessons

Mr. Allen was very nice in telling the audience about the lessons he had learned in Afghanistan. Very expensive lessons paid coming at a cost of trillions of dollars and millions of lives, but since they were so expensive no doubt the things he learned need repeating. Among his comments he said: "… without security almost nothing is possible in the future in Afghanistan." Sure but I think any idiot will tell you that you cannot build a future when your country has been invaded and is occupied.

Regardless, that was not Mr. Allen’s main lesson learned. According to him his top lesson learned was that the invaded people might actually fight back and kill his "advisers". "That development, together with innovations in the method and prevalence of roadside bombs, or improvised explosive devices (IEDs), is among Allen’s top lessons learned from the war."reports UT San Diego.

Mr. Allen also said: "It took us awhile to recognize the strategic implications, killing our advisers, created a huge political crisis ... that began to create a dissolution of the coalition. This was the biggest political challenge I faced."

Mr. Stavridis’ Lessons

Neither of the "commanders" took responsibility for bringing Al-Qaeda to Iraq, a country where they did not exist before, and did not mention the fall of Fallujah a city for which hundreds of Americans had died, so I guess it was not that important.

Mr. Stavridis did acknowledge "enormous fatigue" in the US with Middle Eastern problems, from the Palestinian crisis to Iraq and Afghanistan in what is perceived as "this enormous, disastrous crescent of crisis." but did not take any responsibility. Even worse he said they should continue their adventure: "The worst thing we could do in my view is walk away from this turbulent part of the world or come home to our shores."

Mr. Stavridis was regretful on one point however when he said: "… the US failed to leave behind a residual force of troops. Options for nurturing stability in volatile areas include ‘strategic communication’ about American values such as democracy, NATO military advisers, private-sector weapons sales, and cultural exchanges to build ‘secondary linkages.’" Yes, the families of those one million Iraqis the US killed need to be taught about "American values, democracy and weapons sales.

Mr. Stravidis was candid however when he stated the real reason for destroying Iraq: "All is not lost. If we use the tools we have, we’ve got a reasonable chance of keeping Iraq where it needs to be, a friend of the United States, engaged in the region." No mention of Al-Qaeda or 9-11 or WMDs there. Strange?

Best Lesson

The award for the best lesson learned goes to Mr. Stravidis and he gets the award for saying: "In the end, we won’t deliver security strictly from the barrel of a gun. We are going to do it through building teams."

Apparently they love learning because they want more

The American Forces Press Service reports that apparently the lessons continue. This time the student is Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel who said that despite the fact that Afghan President Hamid Karzai will not sign an agreement that would allow for a continued US/NATO presence he: "… continues to plan for a post-2014 training and assistance mission in Afghanistan."

The publication says that Mr. Hagel recently met US President Obama and discussed the retreat and the pulling out of forces and equipment from Afghanistan. The US position has not changed, Mr. Hagel said, adding that "Karzai has so far refused to sign the pact…", but that, "We continue to hope and believe that it will be signed, and we will continue to plan and work with our NATO and International Security Assistance Force commanders for a post-2014 mission."

People keep dying as apparently the hardest lesson which the US refuses to learn is that they are simply "not wanted". Time to finally go home.

Escalation of Violence in Ukraine: Martial Law May Be Only Option

13 February, 19:30

The situation in Ukraine continues to escalate as the western-backed Ukrainian opposition becomes militarized and grows bolder and more violent in their attempts to overthrow the government. It has been clear for some time that what is taking place in Ukraine can in no way be called civil unrest or a popular uprising, what is taking place is a clear western-backed-insurrection and an attempt to overthrow the government by force. The recent killing of a judge for passing a minor sentence on "oppositionists" who attempted to storm a government building shows that soon the government will have no choice but to use maximum force.

What may have begun as peaceful protests to a government decision to join the Russian led Customs Union have escalated beyond all proportion due to the activation of the complete array of western color revolution infrastructure that was already in place. This included threats against judges, police, officials and members of their families yet the government was forced to attempt to appease the thugs even offering amnesty and top government posts to the opposition.

Rather than cracking down as the government had every right to do, these moves at appeasement and attempts to enter into dialogue only emboldened the "opposition" further and led to the taking of government buildings, the militarization of the opposition and now the assassination of a judge, whose job it was to uphold the laws of Ukraine. With all this it appears that the time to declare a state of emergency and, if needed, martial law has already passed. Or will we wait until more judges and police officers are killed in the streets or burned alive or crippled for life?

Assassination of Judge

The latest ugly twist in the Ukrainian "Orange Revolution 2.0" saga come as a young judge named Alexander Lobodenko was assassinated in the street near his home. Justice Lobodenko, who was only 34-years-old, was shot multiple times in the back by two assailants and left for dead.

Police are investigating and believe the execution style murder was carried out as a result of his judicial work, however they would not speculate on the exact suspects as the investigation is still ongoing.

According to local media on the 28th of January Judge Lobodenko sentenced two, so-called "pro-European activists" to two months of house arrest after they tried to break into the city hall building during a rally in Kremenchug days before.

President Yanukovich has since issued a decree amending legislation in order to better protect judges and their family members and hopefully other officials and police who have also been targeted by an increasingly violent and even armed "opposition".

Militarized Opposition

The "opposition" in Ukraine continues to receive support from the West and this is not just innocuous doughnuts handed out by Victoria Nuland, witnesses and people on the ground report that the going rate for the hooligans is 30 euros a day, they are equipped with NATO issue tents and they are increasingly being supplied with military uniforms, helmets, body armor, shields, materials to make weapons with and even weaponhs themselves.

The latest addition to their arsenal, which also includes offices, headquarters, media support and the entire color revolution infrastructure long ago placed in Ukraine by the West includes fortifications to the barricades at Maidan Square.

Local media are citing what they are calling "one of the commandants of Maidan" lawmaker Stepan Kubiv as saying that: "… sand and empty bags have been purchased and are at storehouses in Kiev and will be delivered to Maidan in order to strengthen the barricades but that they will start strengthening the barricades at Hrushevskogo and Instytutska Streets firstly."

Many, including myself, have been questioning why the proper authorities are letting this continue. It has obviously escalated to something far beyond peaceful protests and the government has the right, if not the primary responsibility, to defend the integrity of the state and maintain civil order.

Blackmail by the West

The western-backed protests have escalated to the point that the government has been forced to resign amid call that the elected President of Ukraine Vicotr Yanukovich step down. These unprecedented calls came almost immediately after he chose to sign agreements with Russia rather than an association agreement with the EU, and came from EU officials and were spread throughout the western media.

The outside pressure and that from Ukraine’s "opposition" has been so great that on January 31st President Yanukovich was forced to sign a bill declaring amnesty for protesters and canceling anti-demonstration laws on January 31, in effect giving the insurrectionists impunity and allowing them to do whatever they pleased.

Not only was it made crystal clear from the recent conversation released on the Internet between US "diplomat" Victoria Nuland and the US Ambassador to Ukraine, that the US is actively and almost completely transparently now, involved in attempting a coup in Ukraine and the overthrowing of the elected government to be replaced with hand-picked western puppets, but an array of other threats and statements from a broad range of western and NATO affiliated officials have also made it clear the West’s intent.

The European Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton has publically admitted that she clearly warned the Ukrainian leadership that the EU could: "… exert ‘all possible types of pressure on it’ and even publically stated when asked about sanctions against Ukraine during a meeting of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament that: ‘…none of the options has been removed from the agenda.’"

We have to recall and underline that this all came about due to an EU association agreement. Ukraine said no to the EU, but as Victoria Nuland recently admitted the US has spent over $52 billion to "own" Ukraine and they will not take no for an answer.

Divide and Conquer

The divide and conquer strategy of the West in Ukraine is similar to what was planned for the Russian Federation and has already begun with the country effectively now operating as a federation. According to the Russian Minister/Counselor to Ukraine in Kiev Andrei Vorobyov, Ukraine has: "… already informally turned into a federation, as alternative government bodies have been set up in a number of regions."

"I am sure that, regardless of political wishes, the country is developing toward federalization. Whether it will be formally stipulated by the constitution or whether it will formally remain to be a unitary state, but informally it is already a federation," Mr. Vorobyov said at a debate titled the "Federalization of Ukraine: From Split to Unity".

According Interfax Vorobyov stated that: "… the priority now is to resolve the crisis in a peaceful way, and Russia is interested in a peaceful settlement through negotiations."

Government’s Hands Tied

It is clear that the authorities and the Security Services of Ukraine have been unable to deal with the threat to the state, for whatever reasons, and the situation has escalated to the point where the debate is now about sending in the armed forces. However the Defense Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Lebedev, in an interview with Interfax said that: "Under the law 'On the Armed Forces of Ukraine,' it is only possible if a state of emergency or martial law is introduced in the country. Under the Constitution, it may be introduced by a presidential decree and is subject to approval by the Verkhovna Rada, and currently there exists no such decree."

When Will Enough be Enough?

The question now is how many more judges, police officers and members of the security forces are going to have to die before the western-backed insurrectionists, neo-nazi extremists and those who storm government buildings face the full wrath of the government that they are trying to overthrow?

A legitimate "opposition" exists in any country, it elects leaders, argues policy, holds peaceful demonstrations and works within the rules. They DO NOT receive funding and orders from foreign powers, set police on fire, shoot judges in the back, demand high government positions by force, cause instability and mayhem and seize government buildings. These are insurrectionists who only understand force and in reality there is only one cure.

Hopefully the "opposition" in Ukraine will finally see that force is not the way forward and enter into a peaceful dialogue with the government and the sovereignty and integrity of Ukraine will no longer be under threat. The problem is one for the Ukrainian people to work out peacefully and outside interference must not be allowed, but the government does have a responsibility to the Ukrainian people and under the Ukrainian Constitution to guarantee the integrity of the state and the country. They do not have a responsibility to the US/NATO/EU to run their country as the West sees fit.

My thoughts are with the people.

Global Warming: What Big Oil Doesn't Want Known

16 February, 04:07

It is a subject that is largely debated while at the same time being quietly pushed onto page 23 but global warming and rising sea levels are topics that affect all of us and are issues we must all pay more attention to. It is however understandable that the issue is not given the importance that it should be because the key cause of global warming is the combustion of fossil fuels and our civilization is driven and dependent on fossil fuels.

The carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases that we have released into the atmosphere through our industries and by driving our cars and heating our homes have warmed the overall atmosphere of the Earth by more than 1 full degree Fahrenheit in the last one hundred years and cause sea levels to rise by approximately 8 inches. Experts say that even if we completely stopped burning all fossil fuels the gasses that have already accumulated will continue to warm the Earth for hundreds of years to come. Understandably this is something the huge multinational oil corporations and the car makers would not want to happen, hence the information on global warming, even the scientific studies are all obfuscated, conflicting and inaccurate.

Green House Gasses

The damage has already been done and the results are visible more and more every day. I would argue that the constant reports of anomalous weather conditions that are taking place all over the world and that we are seeing with alarming frequency are a direct result of global warming and rising sea levels and the effects are worse than even the most doomsday predictions.

Last spring scientists conducted studies of the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and determined that it had reached 400 parts per million, this is the highest that it has been in the past three million years according to researchers. This will be almost impossible to get rid of until perhaps some new methods are invented to clean up the atmosphere and will continue to cause global warming in what some say will be an accelerated rate even if we somehow manage to limit future greenhouse gas emissions.

Rising Sea Levels, Facts and Figures

Global temperature increases melt ice and affects sea level in two ways, both from thermal expansion, when water grows in volume as it becomes warmer, meaning water at 15 degrees Celsius has more volume than water at 3 degrees Celsius. The rest of the rising sea levels are cause by melting ice. The big concern is that giant ice flows and permafrost in Greenland and Antarctica will begin to melt at an accelerated rate.

In 2007 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a report predicting that sea levels would rise by a maximum of 58 centimeters by the end of this century. However that report intentionally omitted taking into account the possibility that the ice sheets might begin to melt into the seas more rapidly as the physics of the process were not yet fully understood.

The September 2013 IPCC report put the above figure of maximum seal level rise by 2100 at 98 centimeters and actually published figures on ice flow from the poles. The result was an estimate of sea level rise of 28 to 98 centimeters (a maximum of almost one meter) by 2100. However they are still unclear as to the rate that ice will melt from the ice sheets of Greenland or the Antarctic. These are the two most important areas to be concerned with as those two ice sheets, should they melt, hold enough water to cause a 65 meter rise in global sea levels.

In order for sea levels to not be affected and to maintain their levels there must be equilibrium between the water that is falling on the ice sheets in Antarctica and Greenland, which over time because glacial ice, and that which returns to the sea in the form of icebergs and melting at the edges, this is called the mass balance. Due to increased global atmospheric temperatures a non-zero balance has occurred which is causing global sea levels to rise.

Highly precise satellite gravimetry (the measurement of the strength of the gravitational field) and altimetry (the measurement of elevation or altitude) have allowed scientists to make exact measurements determining that Greenland alone is losing more than 200 billion tons of ice per year. Between 2003 and 2010, a period for which studies have been conducted the total loss to the ice mass from Antarctica, Greenland and the Earth's glaciers and ice caps was about 4.3 trillion tons (1,000 cubic miles). This amount of melted ice added 12mm (0.5 inches) to global sea levels.

Another Method, Worse Results

While most research attempts to measurer sea level changes by attempting to understand and model the physics behind every process involved some have decided that a better and more accurate way to predict the results of global warming and the corresponding sea level rise is to simply calculate sea level changes in correlation with temperature levels over hundreds of years.

The resulting studies are called “semi-empirical” models and tend to be ignored or discounted or not used at all because they show levels as much as twice that of the “process-based” models and show a sea level rise of 2 meters possible by 2100.

One such study was conducted by Stefan Rahmstorf of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Research and another by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and they both predict the sea levels rising by up to 2 meters by 2100.

Historical Sea Levels

During the last 2,000 years sea level changes were insignificant with geological observations giving scientists indications that the average rate of sea level rise was only 0.0–0.2 millimeters per year. Sea levels rose by 6 centimeters during the 19th century alone and a stunning 19 centimeters in the 20th century. Between 1870 and 2004 the average yearly rate was 1.95 millimeters. According to satellite data from 1993 to 2009 there was a 3.3 millimeter rise yearly average. This shows that the levels have begun to rise in correlation with human advancements in industry and the amount of fossil fuels we burn.

Threatened Cities Worldwide

By the year 2070 the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development estimates that over 150 million people who live in the largest port cities of the world will be affected by rising sea levels. If the 2 meters by 2100 scenario is accurate at least 187 million people will be affected. However that conservative estimate fails to account for those in smaller countries and small cities along coasts, where the numbers could be in the billions.

The United States will see the most cities going under water. These cities are already locked into a doomsday forecast and there is nothing that they can do because as I wrote above, even if we stop burning all fossil fuels tomorrow and stopped producing green house gasses, the effects being caused from what is already there will continue to be felt for at least a thousand years. Unless someone invents something to “clean” the atmosphere of course.

Miami Florida, built almost at sea level will be the one of the first US cities to be submerged. Fort Lauderdale Florida and Hoboken New Jersey are also on lists as being the first to go under by 2023 and by 2050 Palm Beach Florida will also join them under water. According to a 2013 report by the World Bank the other major US cities “most at risk”, meaning those that will definitely be under water (as the changes to sea levels are already locked in) are: New York, New Orleans, Tampa and Boston.

The list of cities listed by the World Bank Worldwide include: Guangzhou, China; Mumbai, India; Nagoya, Japan; Shenzen, China and Osaka, Japan, which all top the list. Other cities of note include: Guayaquil, Ecuador; Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; Abidjan, Ivory Coast; Zhanjing, China; Khulna, Bangladesh; Palembang, Indonesia; Alexandria, Egypt; Barranquilla, Colombia; Naples, Italy; Sapporo, Japan; and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

A study by Nature Climate Change list other cities that will be seriously affected by rising seal-levels and be partially flooded or necessitate the building of complex barriers and waterways, these include: Alexandria, Egypt; Barranquilla, Columbia; Sapporo, Japan; Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; Beirut, Lebanon; Houston, Texas; Istanbul, Turkey; Jakarta, Indonesia; Izmir, Turkey; Marseille, France; Athens, Greece; Shanghai, China; Benghazi, Libya; Tel Aviv, Israel; Fuzhou, China; Ningbo, China; Havana, Cuba; Port Au Prince, Haiti and Algiers, Algeria.

That is not all, one study by the National Academy of Sciences of the United States says that 1,700 US cities will be affected with cities as far inland as Sacramento, California seeing flooding by 2100. Cambridge Massachusetts will be partially under water by the early 2060s and that is not all.

Disappearing Islands and Nations

For people who live in cities that will eventually disappear it is bad enough but for the inhabitants small islands and island nations, who entire countries may be under water, the option of moving inland will not be there. This is what happened to the people of Tegua, part of the Torres Strait Islands in the South Pacific. In 2005 the United Nations declared 100 residents who had to be evacuated because the island was going under water, as the world’s first climate change refugees.

Bermeja Island was a small island near the Gulf of Mexico and has already disappeared into the ocean.

The Carteret Islands are in the south-west Pacific Ocean, are home to over 2,500 people and will be uninhabitable by 2015.

Kiribati Island is officially called the Republic of Kiribati and is located in the central Pacific Ocean. It is already experiencing rising water levels.

The Lohachara and Suparibhanga Islands were Indian islands and have already disappeared under the sea. More than 10,000 people lived there.

The Maldives are an island nation in the Indian Ocean. The high point of the islands is only about 2.5 meters with the average being 1.3 meters. This nation will soon disappear.

The Marshall Islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean will also soon be gone.

Palau consists of more than 250 islands and is about 500 miles southeast of the Philippines. More than 20,000 people live there. It is under serious threat.

Tonga Island is located in the South Pacific and if ocean levels rise any further it will be affected.

The Tuvalu Islands are located between Australia and Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean. Approximately 11,000 people live there and they have already started evacuating. New Zealand has agreed to grant refuge to 75 Tuvaluans every year. The nation will disappear by 2060.

Vanuatu Island or the Republic of Vanuatu is in the South Pacific and may soon be submerged.

Anomalous Weather and Global Warming

Have you noticed the crazy weather we are having? Just this past year we have seen: record breaking cold in South America last winter; balmy weather and no snow in January in Moscow (becoming the norm), snow in Jerusalem in September, flooding and hurricane force winds throughout the UK, heat waves in Australia and the US, massive flooding throughout Asia and Oceania, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, snow in the Middle East, current massive snow and ice storms in the US, record rains and then heat in Tasmania, sever snowstorms in southern Italy and Sicily, record cold in China, droughts in Brazil, and the list goes on and on.

According to the New York Times Omar Baddour, of the World Meteorological Organization in Geneva said: “Each year we have extreme weather, but it’s unusual to have so many extreme events around the world at once. The heat wave in Australia; the flooding in the U.K., and most recently the flooding and extensive snowstorm in the Middle East it’s already a big year in terms of extreme weather calamity. Such events are increasing in intensity as well as frequency, a sign that climate change is not just about rising temperatures, but also about intense, unpleasant, anomalous weather of all kinds.”

Climate Change Denial: a New Phenomena

Of course there are climate change skeptics and these are almost totally people who are backed by oil companies or fossil energy concerns. Just like proponents of fracking and the Keystone Pipeline they cite their own oil company funded studies and the like to deny what is visible all around us.

Unfortunately global warming has become an issue of widespread political debate, particularly in the US where it is usually split along party lines, with Republicans of course being the biggest deniers. For economic or political reason many attempt to downplay or discredit the issue even proven scientific data, something which academics and scientists have named “Climate Change Denial”, prevalent in the US.

Sadly climate scientists, especially in the US, have complained of attempts by government officials and oil-industry representatives to censor or suppress their work and to hide scientific data. Some have even been ordered not to publically discuss global warming.

One such denier, Mr. Myron Ebell the Director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute was quoted in multiple media outlets as saying: "We don't know how much sea levels will rise or fall, models can't reliably predict the climate, because its changes are "non-linear" or irregular, so flood walls and other measures might waste money.”

Tell that to the people of Tegua.

Ukraine: Another Piece in US/NATO/EU Neo-Con Puzzle

21 February, 18:00

A monstrous crime is being committed in Ukraine right before the eyes of the world and the western media is helping to cover it up and distract the attention of the entire world from the core fact that the events in Ukraine are not a popular uprising but a carefully orchestrated synthetic coup d’état brought about by long entrenched western color revolution infrastructure that was installed by US/NATO/EU to bring about the illegal act of regime change on the sovereign country of Ukraine.

The unprecedented violent actions by the armed insurgents, who openly use deadly force on law enforcement and have set Kiev in flames, attempting to overthrow the government by force, are in fact treasonous crimes against the Ukraine and the people of Ukraine as they are being controlled from the outside and violate all internationally accepted democratic principles as well as all of the internal laws and constitutionally dictated standards of conduct enshrined in the Constitution of Ukraine.

It is illegal under international law for any country to carry out measures to bring about the illegal change of the government in any other sovereign state, this includes support of any kind for insurgent forces, the implementation of economic and other measures to pressure the government to step down or dissolve and all other instruments and measures both covert and overt that may be used to bring about what is now popularly called "regime change" by the West and the US Government.

International Law

Overthrowing governments and removing presidents by force is illegal and covered in laws and ruling by bodies such as the World Court and even the International Criminal Court, which has become a mere instrument of the West, however the United Nations Charter is the most important document and widely respected of all of these instruments and one which all countries that attempt to abide by international law attempt to follow.

Under the UN Charter all attempts by the US/NATO/EU to influence the events in Ukraine so as to bring about a resolution that conforms to their own interests are illegal.

The debate over US/NATO/EU meddling in Ukraine and the use of US/NATO/EU military force, economic measures, political pressure and all of the other "tools" they use, including aggressive military attack and occupation, to effect regime changes in countries such as Afghanistan, Cuba, Iraq, Iran, Serbia, Venezuela, Ukraine, Yugoslavia, Sudan and the other targeted countries, has conveniently been absent of one key fact: coercive, forced and outside regime change violates basic all of the accepted tenets of international law.

UN Charter

According to Article 1 (2) of the UN Charterdeveloping peaceful international relations based on the "principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples" is one of the founding principles of the United Nations, and by default the UN Security Council. Therefore any attempt by any country to subjugate or pressure another into implementing measures or carrying out an agenda not instigated from within and not in keeping with the will of the people is illegal. The "will of the people" can only be known through referendums and democratic political processes and debates, not through fabricated pogroms in the streets, which the US is expert at organizing. As for pressure on the government, even the implementation of sanctions is therefore illegal as this is done to pressure a government from the outside.

It is prohibited under international law to threaten to use force and Article 2 (4) of the UN Charter states this clearly and requires all UN member states to respect the sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence of other states. US/NATO/EU have not threatened military force against Ukraine, as they already have their ground force installed as they did in Syria, Libya, etc. but this applies to other countries they have invaded recently.

Article 2 (7) of the UN Charter states clearly that the United Nations and its members have no authority to intervene in matters which are within the domestic jurisdiction of any state (sovereign country). However the US/NATO/EU have gotten around this by implementing and using what they call the Responsibility to Protect. Uprisings and violent demonstrations such as what is happening in Ukraine fall within the definition of domestic jurisdiction, therefore any outside attempt to interfere is illegal.

Armed Insurgents

What is alarming in Ukraine is the violent and militarized nature of what the West is endlessly painting as a legitimate opposition. This portrayal runs contrary to what the most of the world is seeing right in front of their eyes on their TV screens. Even multiple statements by US officials themselves and a recently released telephone conversation between US official Victoria Nuland and the US Ambassador to Ukraine, show that these are not members of a legitimate internal opposition, but rather radicalized, militarized, trained, planted, funded and supported members of western "color revolution" infrastructure.

The US/NATO/EU continue to egregiously blame the government and are criminally silent when the opposition they support, and in fact planted, murder members of the security forces and policemen. The outright murder, kidnapping and extreme violence against police and security forces should be something that would cause an outcry among police officers worldwide, especially in the US, where their police are given almost god-like reverence, yet the so called "international community" and members of the world’s law enforcement bodies are silent.

Nothing that the insurgents have done would be supported in any US/NATO/EU country or city, yet they continue to call on, threaten and pressure the authorities in Ukraine to not interfere or take required measures. The violent insurgents have made a mockery of law and order and have literally set the capital of a civilized, democratic European country on fire.

Storming, seizing and burning down the buildings which house the instruments and bodies of the state; openly shooting, murdering, kidnapping and falsely detaining members of law enforcement; destroying and setting alight the property of the state and the people; organizing the pogrom we are seeing in Ukraine; violating the law and acting against their own constitution; blackmailing and threatening officials to step down or be complaint and finally promoting policies that are not in keeping with the desires of the Ukrainian people, are all factual aspects of the Ukrainian "opposition". So why is US/NATO/EU openly supporting them?

Business As Usual for US/NATO/EU

In my journalistic work I have attempted to robustly detail for years what US/NATO have been doing in their redesigning of world’s geopolitical landscape and I cannot repeat this enough, what we are seeing in Ukraine is just another regime change for the West. The tactics they use are always the same, we have seen them and documented them time and again and they continue to be illegal and egregious. Yet they continue with impunity.

All of the regime change actions and provocations that US/NATO/EU have used in Ukraine have been documented and exposed before the fact, yet the US president, EU leaders and their compliant media continue to egregiously stick to their own artificial pre-planned narrative.

The goal was regime change because US/NATO/EU understood that the Ukrainian Government and more importantly the Ukrainian people would not allow their country to be subverted and become yet another US/NATO/EU client state. More importantly this turn to Russia seriously interferes with US/NATO/EU military plans to base US/NATO missiles in Ukraine, evict the Russian Black Sea Fleet and achieve their prime military objective of neutralizing Russia and eliminating Russia’s response to a first strike nuclear attack, which at the end of the day is the goal. The people of Ukraine and the organs of government are just inconveniences for US/NATO/EU and even if the country is completely destroyed and divided, their goal will be carried out. The destruction of the state of Ukraine will in fact benefit the US/NATO/EU and this fact we have seen repeatedly in the last 15 years.

Obama Connects Syria and Ukraine

In comments related to a soon to be released Voice of Russia interview Professor Francis Boyle a professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law told me the following: "Obama said that the people of the Ukraine should be able to determine their own future just like the people of Syria should be able to determine their own future. So Obama himself linked the two. The strategy is the same: regime change, civil war, destruction of the State. So this elevates the call by the State Department for a transition to a government of technocrats to the presidential level. The cat is out of the bag. Regime Change of the democratically elected government of Ukraine is openly admitted to be USG policy. Even worse than Syria, whose government was arguably not really democratic. Nevertheless as I point out in my book, the demand for regime change by one government against another government is illegal and violates the World Court's ruling against the United States in the Nicaragua decision (1996)."

Media Failure

The western mass media continues to promote and spread a phony slanted narrative of the events in Ukraine and their attempts have been formidable and almost impossible to counter. This concerns mostly the nature and portrayal of the police murdering opposition which, like the cop killers in the Caucuses, the West portrays as heroes and some sort of freedom fighters.

Again the hypocrisy of the West in Ukraine is resounding and completely obvious, yet they continue with impunity. US illegality and their complete and total disregard for international law continue to stare the world in the face in Guantanamo and worldwide, yet the compliant media has failed as US illegality has now spread like a cancer to include all NATO/EU countries.

It is another black day for the world as we see that the mass media has completely failed and been corrupted in the West. All of the facts surrounding the murderous insurgents in Ukraine and their bloody uprising and the collusion of the Central Intelligence Agency, US/NATO/EU and the West are being conveniently ignored as the subservient media chooses to attempt to go so far as to blame Russia which has from day one made it a point not to interfere.

Nowhere do we see debates going on regarding: the over $50 billion the US has spent buying out Ukraine; the admission by Victoria Nuland of US meddling in her telephone conversation, during which she implicated the head of the UN in US/NATO/EU plans; the training and equipping of the insurgents by US/NATO/EU; the fact that all outside pressure and meddling is illegal nor the fact that if anything similar happened in the West it would in no way be allowed.

Wake Up Call

They have won and Ukraine has fallen. The President of Ukraine has stated he will step down, which was the first call by the US/NATO/EU, when the first encampments appeared on Maidan Square. This was their clear goal and even though we documented it they have won. However what they have in fact done is committed another crime on an international scale.

Will anyone answer for the crime of subversion and for violating the sovereignty of Ukraine? Not likely. Therefore this should be a serious wake up call to all countries of the world, but will it? Also not likely.

What is striking in Ukraine was that it was a democratically elected government, that all of the US/NATO/EU plans were know from the start and that it was still allowed to proceed.

Once again, as we saw in Iraq, Libya and all other countries where the governments have been recently overthrown and the leader executed or otherwise removed (with North Korea being the perfect example) the only protection that any country has from the imposition of US/NATO/EU regime change is quite simply nuclear weapons.

US/NATO Obama/Neo-Con Plans and Impunity

After 9-11 Neo-Con Paul Wolfowitz, the then US Deputy Secretary of Defense stated that the US Government is now in the business of destroying countries, executing presidents and changing governments at will.

General Wesley Clark who was the Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, took issue with the Neo-Con architects from the Project for a New American Century (LINK 5) and gave testimony that the US planned to overthrow seven countries after 9/11: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran.

Mr. Clark called the post 9-11 overtaking of the US Government a coup and said it was plotted by Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz and "a half dozen other collaborators from the Project for the New American Century". In a report Glen Greenwald cites a US Secretary of Defense Memo which gave even more detail and put a timeframe on the plan: "I just got this memo from the Secretary of Defense’s office. It says we’re going to attack and destroy the governments in 7 countries in five years – we’re going to start with Iraq, and then we’re going to move to Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran."

Greenwald reported that General Clark was shocked and wrote about the following exchange: "And we’ve got about 5 or 10 years to clean up those old Soviet regimes – Syria, Iran [sic], Iraq – before the next great superpower comes on to challenge us." Clark said he was shocked by Wolfowitz’s desires because, as Clark put it: "the purpose of the military is to start wars and change governments? It’s not to deter conflicts?"." Clark said he was shocked by Wolfowitz’s desires because, as Clark put it: "the purpose of the military is to start wars and change governments? It’s not to deter conflicts?"

A New Regime Would Be Illegal

Any regime installed in any way other than trough democratic elections in Ukraine and under the current crisis will be illegal. President Yanukovich despite being weak and some might argue incompetent in maintaining stability in his country, was democratically elected in elections that were recognized by the entire world. This is important to underline.

Even though he was placed in a Catch 22 situation by the West where if he cracked down he would be demonized and if he did not he would be overthrown, his handling of the internal crisis leaves a lot of questions to be answered.

Timing of Ukrainian Coup

It is also important to note the similarities between the timing of the events in Ukraine and the invasion by Georgia of South OssetiaBoth taking place during Olympics and again the words of Neo-Con Paul Wolfowitz: "… we’ve got about 5 or 10 years to clean up those old Soviet regimes before the next great superpower comes on to challenge us."

Ukraine is the crowning jewel and it looks like they will obtain it.

Anonymous Ukraine is battling the forces in Ukraine that are funded and directed from the West and attempting to overthrow the democratically elected government of the sovereign country of Ukraine. 

Anonymous Ukraine is operating in what can only now be described as a war zone and the security measures they are forced to take are extreme. A member of Anonymous Ukraine who wishes to remain anonymous spoke to the Voice of Russia about the operations and the recent release of e-mails between Vitaly Klischko and the Lithuanian Presidential advisor. The e-mails show that Klitschko was intentionally planning to destabilize the country, is being instructed and funded from abroad and has his accounts in Germany.

Greetings citizens of the world. We are Anonymous Ukraine.

The Anonymous Hacktivist Collective worldwide is partially divided on the issue of Ukraine. This has to do with the western mass media propaganda and the conflicting reports that are coming out of the country. This is sad as some Anons are unknowingly supporting the dark forces at work in Ukraine. Members of Anonymous Ukraine are aware of the internal meddling by the United States, NATO and the European Union into the internal sovereign affairs of Ukraine. Anonymous Ukraine supports peace and the right of the people to self determination. The Bandera Nazis and fascist thugs that are beating and killing police and members of the security services of Ukraine do not represent the will or the wishes of the people of Ukraine. The people of Ukraine do not want European Union integration. The people of Ukraine do not want NATO on their territory. The people of Ukraine voted for President Yanukovich to lead them in fair and just democratic elections. The people of Ukraine plea to the President and to Russia for help in stopping the siege of Ukraine by Nazi thugs and murderous gangs. The people of Ukraine do not want to see their beloved capital Kiev occupied by Nazi killers and burned to the ground. The people of Ukraine want their independence to be recognized and be allowed to determine their own fate without pressure from US, NATO, European Union. The people of Ukraine want peace and want the Bandera Nazis to be stopped once and for all. Anonymous Ukraine does not like nor support what is happening in Ukraine now. The so-called opposition is trying to tear Ukraine apart. Anonymous Ukraine has released the e-mails of one of the leaders of the so called opposition and will continue to expose the moves by the west to subvert the sovereign country of Ukraine. The e mails released by Anonymous prove that Vitaly Klichko is a puppet of the West and is being financed through intermediaries in Lithuania. The e mails also prove that Klitchko has bank accounts in Germany and is receiving funding for his coup d’état from the West. We will continue fighting these puppets. The western puppet opposition leaders will hurl Ukraine into chaos. We appeal to the president of our country. The people of Ukraine urge you. President Yanukovich, to restore order and bring calm and stability and disperse the gangs of robbers and Nazis. Anonymous Ukraine will strike at all of the web resources of western hirelings and fascists. Anonymous Ukraine calls for Ukraine to be unified and independent. The government of Ukraine promoted the country's integration into Euro-Atlantic institutions despite the reluctance of Ukrainian people. Ukrainian citizens realize that signing of the Association Agreement with the European Union will lead to the collapse of Ukrainian economy in the near future. We express our support to the people of our country. We want Ukrainian government and EU leadership to understand that people of Ukraine do not want their country to become a raw material donor to Europe. Ukraine must be free. We do not want to be dependent on other countries or organizations. Ukrainian people do not need a speculative Association Agreement with the European Union. Ukraine does not need to be a part of Russia-led Eurasian customs union. We do not need to be servants of NATO. Ukraine does not need European Union. Ukraine does not need NATO. Ukraine should not be anybody's servant. We stand for independent Ukraine. We declare the continuation of Operation Independence. We will strike at the web resources of countries and organizations that pose a threat to freedom and independence of Ukraine!

Operation Independence continues… Expect us

We are Anonymous Ukraine.

We are Anonymous.

We are Legion.

We Do Not Forgive.

We Do Not Forget.

Expect Us.

Anonymous Ukraine Klitschko E-Mails and Nuland/Pyatt Dialogue Prove US Organized Coup

25 February, 19:27

A coup d’état has occurred in Ukraine and all of the signs and even the actors behind it were known to the world before it happened. Before the democratically elected president went into hiding and the parliament was taken over by western puppets and neo-nazi [sic] thugs we all knew what the western geopolitical architects were planning on their chessboard.

Warnings were repeatedly issued and broadcast and calls were made, before the situation spiraled out of control, for those in power to maintain order and prevent what has happened in Ukraine. These warning came from across the spectrum, from analysts to high level government officials and leaders, yet those in power in Ukraine were either negligent in preventing the coup or were in fact totally impotent to stop it. In either case the failure by President Yanukovich to keep order and protect the Ukrainian people (all of the Ukrainian people) from the horror that has been unleashed on Ukraine (a horror we are only seeing the beginning of) is a betrayal to his people and a failure on his part in fulfilling his duties, no matter how Machiavellian the plots and the actors were, who successfully overthrew the government and sent him into hiding.

Proof of Treason by the Opposition

It is not, and has not been for some time, a secret that the West was behind the previous color revolution in Ukraine and it was not a secret that the same infrastructure was being used by the US/NATO/CIA to destabilize Ukraine after Ukraine made a brave and independent sovereign decision to say no to a European Union deal which in fact offered it nothing and say yes to the Russian led Customs Union which offered it $100 billion over 7 years.

Yes dear reader in reality the EU deal offered nothing for Ukraine other than some tenuous abstract idea spread by false propaganda that somehow life would be better for Ukrainians if they became the stepchildren of the EU. What EU integration would have done, and what the goal is and what it will do, is to cement plans for including Ukraine in NATO and placing NATO military infrastructure in Ukraine. This is the crowning jewel of US/NATO expansion plans to move right up to Russian borders.

These plans are being aided and abetted by the so-called Ukrainian opposition, who in reality have no interest in supporting the Ukrainian people and have now aided foreign forces in destroying and taking over their own country. Not only have they now sold out their country to foreign forces but they have allowed the worst elements of their population to achieve and unprecedented power grab as the neo-nazi forces of Dmitry Yarosh have now through the use of terror, violence and murder taken control of Kiev and are spreading their wave of terror and hate to other parts of Ukraine taking region after region.

Not only does the now infamous conversation between US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and the US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt that was released on the internet show firsthand the level of US meddling in Ukraine and even the collusion of the United Nations in bringing about an illegal change of government in Ukraine, but e-mails released by the hacktivist group Anonymous Ukraine and other evidence prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the leading opposition figures are clearly just puppets for western forces.

The e-mails that were released by Anonymous Ukraine have been suppressed by the West and were commented on by Anonymous Ukraine in an interview for the Voice of Russia. The fact that they are genuine is backed up by the silence from all of the parties involved and the attempts by western special services to have them permanently removed from the Internet.

The e-mails released by Anonymous between Laurynas Jonavicius an Advisor to the President of Lithuania, a country that has been active in Nazi historical revisionism, and Vitaly Klitschko were accidentally uncovered by Anonymous when they hacked the e-mails of the Lithuanian Administration and show how Klitschko is controlled by the West through a Lithuanian intermediary.

The text of the first e-mail, rewritten verbatim below is apparently one of the first as he addresses the advisor as “Mr. Jonavicius”. In the e-mail Klitschko refers to plans for his future inferring that he agrees to their terms. He also mentions the money him and his circle are to be paid, a visit to the Lithuanian Embassy and his bank account in Germany where the said monies are to be transferred.

Klitschko’s e-mail source IP information shows that his e-mails emanate from his own domain “k-mg.com” which expires August 26th, 2014. His domain is registered to Klitschko Management Group GmbH, located at Grosse Elbstr. Street 275 in Hamburg, Germany. Klitschko is known to have travelled to Germany several times before the upheavals.

E-Mail #1

Wed, 27 Nov 2013 13:18:41 +0100 (CET)

Dear Mr. Jonavicius,

I am writing to thank you for your assistance. The meeting with Mrs. Grauziniene was very productive. We exchanged views on current events and discussed our plans for the future. Mrs. Grauziniene made some interesting proposals concerning my future. I need to give it some thought but in general I am willing to accept your terms.

Special thanks to all Lithuanian friends for financial assistance. Today my assistant visited your embassy where he met the Counselor. They discussed financial issues and plans for future cooperation. My assistant also provided Valentina with the details of my bank account in Germany.

I look forward to a successful working relationship in the future.

Regards,

Vitali

The next e-mail is dated December 7th which is exactly 3 days before Victoria Nuland appeared on Maidan Square to hand out doughnuts to protestors. Klitschko has obviously had a lot of phone or other contact with the Lithuanian advisor at this point and refers to a phone conversation and addresses him as simply Laurynas. He discusses officials from other countries visiting Maidan for moral support, which shows that the entire charade has nothing to do with the Ukrainian people nor with Ukraine. In the e-mail he even mentions Nuland directly and someone from the US Congress. Hence John McCain showed up. This may not be illegal at this point but in light of the fact that they were involved in the organizing of a coup and the overthrowing of a legitimate democratically elected government, it is highly illegal.

Klitschko also requests information on President Yanukovich, in other words for intelligence and for the President of Ukraine to be spied on by a foreign power. An egregious treasonous act if there ever was one.

E-Mail #2

Sat, 07 Dec 2013 15:48:32 +0100 (CET)

Laurynas,

Following up upon our telephone conversation I think it would be useful to schedule a visit of some high-ranking officials from the EU. Maidan is in need of constant moral support. It would be appropriate to invite someone from Berlin. I have some top-ranking friends there but for some reason they hesitate.

Our American friends promised to pay a visit in the coming days, we may even see Nuland or someone from the Congress.

Another concern I want to raise is that Yanukovych keeps a low profile. It looks very suspicious. What's he up to? We would really appreciate some more information on this issue.

Sincerely yours,

Vitali

In the third e-mail Klitschko again says he is grateful for support (again we must underline they are working on overthrowing a government) and promises to do a good job for his new masters. These promises should be made to the Ukrainian people not a foreign power. He also shows knowledge and intention to destabilize Ukraine and thanks the foreign power for intelligence it has provided on his own president.

E-Mail #3

December 14, 2013

Laurynas,

I am very grateful to the President and all Lithuanian friends for such strong support. I will do everything possible to meet the expectations of my European partners.

Your colleague has arrived and started working with my team. He's a real pro and I think his services may be required even after the country is destabilized.

I've also met your people from the Embassy. The information about Yanukovych's plans they handed me is very important for our common cause. I would like to receive this kind of information on a permanent basis.

Sincerely yours,

Vitali

In the final and fourth e-mail Klitschko seems impatient to start real violence and calls for a “radical escalation”. He also asks for more money for the “services of supporters” removing all possible doubt about the nature of the “opposition” which are nothing but paid thugs and killers.

E-Mail #4

Thu, 09 Jan 2014 14:43:35 +0200

Laurynas,

I think we've paved the way for more radical escalation of the situation. Isn't it time to proceed with more decisive actions?

I also want you to consider the possibility of increasing funding to pay for the services of our supporters.

Sincerely,

Vitali

Proof of US Meddling

A conversation released on the Internet on about February 6th (timed for the Olympics) between US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and the US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt is even more damning. It is important to underline that under international law planning and carrying out the overthrow of the government of a foreign country is completely illegal. This is especially odious when you consider that Ukraine had a democratically elected government and was not ruled by some tyrannical dictator or monarch but a democratically elected president.

Pyatt believes that everything is going according to plan and discussed matter of factly plans to install the opposition in Ukraine in government posts and where they would be most effective. He also mentions an apparent conversation between Nuland and Arseniy Yatseniuk in which she apparently put him in his place and he submitted to their plans. The hint is to a threat of some sort, or pressure of some kind which Pyatt says needs to be applied to Klitschko.

During the conversation they also mention Oleh Tyahnybok another opposition leader apparently under their control and perhaps most damning is United Nations collusion, which goes against the United Natios Charter and all international laws and conventions regarding the respect for sovereignty and the integrity of nations and the right of the people for self-determination.

The arrogance of Nuland and Pyatt to use pet names with their puppets, typical of American government officials but nonetheless shocking: Klitschko is Klitsch and Arseniy Yatseniuk is Yats. The admission that Ban Ki Moon is part of the plot is something that should be causing an outcry worldwide but no one seems to have noticed.

Pyatt: I think we're in play. The Klitschko piece is obviously the complicated electron here. Especially the announcement of him as deputy prime minister and you've seen some of my notes on the troubles in the marriage right now so we're trying to get a read really fast on where he is on this stuff. But I think your argument to him, which you'll need to make, I think that's the next phone call you want to set up, is exactly the one you made to Yats. And I'm glad you sort of put him on the spot on where he fits in this scenario. And I'm very glad that he said what he said in response.

Nuland: Good. I don't think Klitsch should go into the government. I don't think it's necessary, I don't think it's a good idea.

Pyatt: Yeah. I guess... in terms of him not going into the government, just let him stay out and do his political homework and stuff. I'm just thinking in terms of sort of the process moving ahead we want to keep the moderate democrats together. The problem is going to be Tyahnybok and his guys and I'm sure that's part of what is calculating on all this.

Nuland: I think Yats is the guy who's got the economic experience, the governing experience. He's the... what he needs is Klitsch and Tyahnybok on the outside. He needs to be talking to them four times a week, you know. I just think Klitsch going in... he's going to be at that level working for Yatseniuk, it's just not going to work.

 


Pyatt: No. I think... I mean that's what he proposed but I think, just knowing the dynamic that's been with them where Klitschko has been the top dog, he's going to take a while to show up for whatever meeting they've got and he's probably talking to his guys at this point, so I think you reaching out directly to him helps with the personality management among the three and it gives you also a chance to move fast on all this stuff and put us behind it before they all sit down and he explains why he doesn't like it.

Nuland: OK, good. I'm happy. Why don't you reach out to him and see if he wants to talk before or after.

Pyatt: OK, will do. Thanks.

Nuland: OK... one more wrinkle for you Geoff. I can't remember if I told you this, or if I only told Washington this, that when I talked to Jeff Feltman (United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs) this morning, he had a new name for the UN guy Robert Serry did I write you that this morning?

Pyatt: Yeah I saw that.

Nuland: OK. He's now gotten both Serry and Ban Ki-moon to agree that Serry could come in Monday or Tuesday. So that would be great, I think, to help glue this thing and to have the UN help glue it and, you know, Fuck the EU.

The Goal

The goal in Ukraine is clear, install a western puppet government and base US/NATO military infrastructure in the country. Yanukovich attempted to achieve closer ties with Russia and almost immediately the paid western backed protestors appeared on Maidan Square and instantly the West was calling for early elections. Why didn’t they call for early elections in the US when several thousand protestors appeared in Washington and in front of the White House last November? Again hypocrisy.

The goal was removing the leader, as has been the goal in Syria, in Venezuela, in Libya, in Iraq, and anywhere else the government or the leader has maintained a modicum of independence from the US or attempted to have ties with Russia. Even in Russia attempts were made at removing President Putin which failed.

The leader is now gone but the armed neo-nazi thugs have not disappeared from Maidan, they demand spots in the government and at the head of the security services and they demand that their policies are passed into law as we saw with the immediate outlawing of the Russian language. This is not something wanted by the Ukrainian people, over 50% of whom speak Russian as their native language.

They are there for another reason, the final goal has not yet been met, and that is the integration of Ukraine into NATO, whether the people of Ukraine want it or not. The Maidan will not be cleared until all goals and infrastructure are in place to expel Russia and end any chance of Ukraine being in the sphere of influence of Russia. There must also be mechanisms installed to make sure that NATO is allowed to enter the sovereign territory of Ukraine and station their war machine in Ukraine. The West will not have another chance at Ukraine so the bandera nazis will stay and occupy Kiev until the end

The NATO war machine and the neo-conservatives architects are still living in a Cold War fantasy and cannot see the world in any other way. They are blind to the realities of the modern world and are attempting and in fact are changing the world to fit their fantasy. This anti-Russian psychosis is what NATO was founded on and what it continues to exist for to this very day.

Any Means to an End

Thepeople of Ukraine mean nothing to the far right forces that have toppled the government. They mean even less to the western architects and pay masters of the coup in Ukraine. Ukraine has a long history of problems with extremist nazi groups and they have been organizing and training, by some estimates for 10 years, to bring them to level of readiness that we saw on Maidan. These are lunatics that are calling for the killing of Jews and Russians and for anyone else who does not share their views.

These are groups who are armed and trained and openly murder police and are engaged in a campaign of terror against the people and the government of Ukraine. They are using violence and threats and terrorist tactics to force officials to resign and to take over the houses and building of government. They have succeeded in Kiev and now they are pretending to be a legitimate power.

It is these neo-nazi groups that Victoria Nuland and Klitschko are supporting because they think they will help them to obtain and maintain power, but both of them are wrong. These groups hate Jews and as they are both Jewish (Nuland and Klitschko) it is highly unlikely that the likes of Dmitry Yarosh and his minions will support the opposition for long. Once the Right Sector, controls the security and the police structures they will be able to do whatever they want in Ukraine. And that includes mass arrests of anyone who opposes them, namely Russians and Jews.

In their blind ambition to bring Ukraine into NATO and expel Russia, the US has supported the worst ultra-nationalist nazi elements in Ukraine and the death and destruction ahead are nothing compared to what we have already seen them do.

The US supported the opposition led by Klitschko and supported those who were gathered to bring death and destruction to Ukraine, and US ignorance of the forces in the countries where they unleash mayhem and what they will do continues to call into question the sanity of those who are behind these revolutions.

What is happening in Ukraine is the same thing that happened in Libya, Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan. In those country there were murderous Islamists and terrorists that were supported, funded and armed. They were the worst elements of those countries.

In Ukraine it is murderous nationalist terrorists and neo-nazis, but it does not matter, as long as the government is overthrown. If the country is destroyed that is even better because then the country will be easier to control. And again the people mean nothing. Democracy means nothing. If Democracy meant something the Ukrainian people would have been offered a referendum to change their president and constitution, not seeing people come into power backed by thugs who murder police in front of cameras.

US Threats Against Peace

Since the very start of the troubles in Ukraine the United States has been issuing threats to all parties who might put an end to the mayhem. Yanhukovich was immediately warned not to interfere. He was warned not to crack down and he heeded these warnings. He did nothing until it was too late. He was caught in the classic catch 22. If he did something he would be demonized and if he did not he would be seen as weak. He was seen as weak and this only compounded his problems. The US has also made thinly veiled threats to Russia not to interfere: let the killers kill, that is the plan.

The End of the Ukraine

There is now no government in Ukraine US/NATO/CIA have made sure that the country is completely destroyed. It does not matter to them if the country spirals into anarchy or is divided into East and West. Which is something that is being suggested as the only solution. What is important is that it is pliable and NATO is allowed in.

As for the masses, the Russian population of Ukraine is almost 50% and getting rid of them would require genocide, so dividing the country into a Russian part and a Ukrainian part is the only possible solution and one that they nationalists are bringing about.

Outlawing the Russian language, threatening Jews and Russians with death and threatening the Orthodox Church leave only one option and actually give the Russian/Jewish/Orthodox population a legal basis for that option, which is to secede from Ukraine and take half of the country with them which is what will probably happen. Can these right wing fascist groups that have been training for decades be brought under control? Not likely, and such a solution will not be supported.

Why is the West going to support these groups? Because they are anti-Russian and their rabid Russo-phobia has driven them mad.

15-year Anniversary of NATO Aggression on Yugoslavia John Robles

27 February, 05:44  http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Serbia.html

In March 1999, at the direction of the United States of America, NATO engaged in its first act of illegal aggressive war, beginning what can only be called the “dark age of intervention” in which we are living today. The fact that NATO was allowed to get away with the aggression on Serbia and Montenegro emboldened US/NATO and the US military industrial intelligence banking complex and since that day, under a doctrine of Responsibility to Protect, Humanitarian Interventionism, Preventive War and then the all encompassing “War on Terror”, US/NATO have proceeded to destroy country after country and do away with leaders that they have not found to be submissive enough to their will.

The events of 9-11-2001 were a watershed moment for the geopolitical architects and served as a catalyst to allow them to expand their military machine to every corner of the world and invade countries at will and conduct operations with complete disregard for international law and accepted international norms.

In light of the 15th Anniversary of the NATO aggression the Belgrade Forum for a World of Equals and other independent Civic associations in Serbia will hold an international conference from the 21st to the 24th of March 2014. The conference will gather 100 prominent intellectuals from all over the world, in addition to those from Serbia, Montenegro, the Republica Srpska and 10 to 15 guests from Russia, including Academician and retired Russian Army General Leonid Ivashov. The conference will also include the participation of the Veterans Alliance of Serbia and the Club of Generals and Admirals of Serbia.

The President of the Belgrade Forum for a World of Equals and the last Foreign Minister of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia Zivadin Jovanovic wrote the following summary of the events in light of the 15 year anniversary of the NATO aggression against Yugoslavia. (John Robles)

Do Not Forget, by Zivadin Jovanovic

Fifteen years have passed since the beginning of NATO aggression against Serbia and Montenegro (24 March 1999). This aggression resulted in the loss of 4,000 human lives, including 88 children, and 10,000 people were severely wounded. Over two third of these victims were civilians. How many human lives have been lost in the meantime due to the consequences of weapons with depleted uranium, as well as of remaining cluster bombs, will hardly ever be established.

Breaching the basic norms of international law, its own founding act as well as constitutions of member countries, NATO was bombing Serbia and Montenegro during 78 days continuously destroying the economy, infrastructure, public services, radio and TV centers and transmitters, cultural and historical monuments. NATO bears responsibility for polluting the environment and endangering the health of present and future generations. Economic damage caused by the aggression is estimated at over USD 120 billion. War damage compensation has not yet been claimed, and judgments ruled by our court, by which the leaders of aggressor countries were convicted for the crimes against peace and humanity, were annulled after the coup d’état in 2000.

Governments of aggressor countries seized and occupied the Province of Kosovo and Metohija, and then formally delivered it to former terrorists, separatists and international organized crime bosses. An American military base was established in the Province – “Bondstill”, one of the largest beyond the U.S. territory.

After the aggression, over 250,000 Serbs and other non-Albanians have been forced out the Province of Kosovo and Metohija; even today, 15 years later they are not allowed to return freely and safely to their homes. Ethnic cleansing and even drastic change of ethnic population structure are tolerated by so called international community if only to the detriment of Serbs. The remaining Serbian population in the Province of about 120.000 continues to live in fear and uncertainty. Attacks upon Serbs, detentions and killings, including liquidations of their political leaders, have been continuing up to these days, and nobody is held responsible.

NATO aggression against Serbia and Montenegro (FRY) in 1999 is a crime against peace and humanity. It is a precedent and a turning point towards global interventionism, arbitrary violation of the international legal order and the negation of the role of the UN. The “Bondstill” military base is the first and crucial ring in the chain of new American military bases reflecting strategy of expansion towards East, Caspian Basin, Middle East, towards Russia and its Siberia natural resources. Europe has thus got overall militarization and the new edition of the strategy “Drang nach Osten” (“Thrust to the East”). Destabilization and the tragic developments in Ukraine are just the most recent consequence of that strategy.

15 years after objectives of US/NATO military aggression continue to be pursued by other means. Serbia has been blackmailed to de facto recognize illegal secession of its Province of Kosovo and Metohija through so called Brussels negotiations. The most of the puppet states of the former Yugoslavia are much dependant on and indebted to the leading NATO/EU countries, their financial institutions and corporations so that they could hardly be considered independent states but rather neo-colonies. There is no stability in the Balkans, redrawing of borders has not ended, overall situation is dominated by devastated economy, unemployment, social tensions and misery. Europe, particularly its south-east regions, are experiencing profound economic, social and moral crisis.

Preparations for NATO military aggression against Serbia and Montenegro (FRY) and 1999 aggression itself have been used in the meantime as a blueprint for many other NATO aggressions and occupations - Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Mali and so on. Wherever NATO undertook “humanitarian intervention”, like in former Yugoslavia, it left thousands of dead and mutilated, millions of refugees and displaced persons, ethnic and religious divisions, terrorism and separatism, economic disaster and social misery. NATO expansionist strategy made Europe militarized. There are more US/NATO military bases in Europe today than at the peak of the Cold War era. What for? NATO imperial expansionist strategy has provoked new arms race with unforeseen consequences. Who really needs an organization threatening global peace and stability?

During and after the aggression, 150 Serb monasteries and churches built in the Middle Ages were destroyed. Killed or abducted were some 3,500 Serbs and other non-Albanians, and fates of many of them have not been established until today. Not even one of the thousands of crimes against Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija got a court clarification. Even such terrorist crimes as was blowing up the “Nis-express” bus on 16 February 2001, when 12 people were killed and 43 wounded, neither the murder of 14 Serb farmers reaping in the field in Staro Gracko, on 23 July 2009 remained without thorough investigation, be it by UNMIK, be it by EULEX, or by any other of so many structures of the so called international community.

The Swiss senator, Dick Marty, revealed documented report on trafficking in human organs of Serbs abducted in Kosovo and Metohija. The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the oldest European democratic institution, adopted his Report as the official CE document. Although all factors stand verbally for an efficient investigation and bringing the perpetrators to justice, for many years now there have been no results whatsoever. The documentation on human organ trafficking submitted to The Hague Tribunal had been – destroyed!

The Belgrade Forum for a World of Equals, with support of other non-partisan and independent associations from Serbia, from the region and from the Serb Diaspora throughout the world, are organizing a number of activities under the common title “NOT TO FORGET”, with the aim to remind domestic and international public of human loss, destructions and other consequences of NATO aggression.

On Friday, 21 March 2014 at 6 p.m., in Sava Conference Centre, Belgrade (Milentija Popovica No. 1) an opening ceremony will launch a photographic exhibition presenting consequences of NATO aggression.

On Saturday, March 22 and on Sunday, March 23rd, 2014, International conference “Global Peace vs. Global Interventionism and Imperialism” will be held (Sava Conference Centre. Conference starts at 10 a.m. Some 100 prominent personalities from all over the world have confirmed their participation.

On Monday, March 24th, 2014, at 09.30 a.m., the International Memorial Marathon Belgrade-Hilandar will start in front of Saint Sava Church.

The same day, at 11 a.m., civic associations, representatives of Serb Diaspora, guests from abroad and individuals will lay flowers at the monument to children - victims of the aggression, in the Tašmajdan park, and the same day at 12 a.m. flowers will be laid at the Monument to all victims of the aggression, Friendship park, Ušće, New Belgrade.

Obama "Warns" Karzai: US/NATO May "Leave" Afghanistan. Thank God Afghans Say!

27 February, 11:48   http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Afghanistan.html

The self serving spin is almost mind numbing in its complete twisting of the facts as the western press reports that in a telephone conversation on Tuesday US President Barrack Hussein Obama "warned his Afghan counterpart Hamid Karzai that the US may pull all of its troops out of his country by the year's end." First of all the statement flies in the face of the fact that the US/NATO are supposed to (not may) leave Afghanistan this year.

Secondly the use of the word "warn" implies that somehow President Karzai wants the invaders to continue to occupy his country, something unlikely as he has refused to sign a "security agreement" with the occupiers who want to stay in his country until the end of time to guarantee their military plans and takeover of the entire region.

The Afghanistan narrative by the western media and the US Government is almost the same as the one they were trying to spin as they were chased out of Iraq in 2011. Of course the US Government and US President Obama have to paint as positive a portrait as they can on the Afghanistan fiasco, this is understandable, but given the facts it is pathetic to watch. As in the illegal invasion of Iraq, the invasion of Afghanistan, was portrayed as somehow connected to the events of September 11, 2001 but all connections were quickly proven to be nothing but lies and spin making the US guilty of not one but two (and more) acts of aggressive war (crimes against peace and humanity) based on false pre-fabricated evidence.

Those crimes against humanity have been ignored by the so-called "international community" as they continue to ignore the illegal extra-territorial torture dungeon at Guantanamo Bay Cuba, the ongoing extra-judicial drone assassination operations by the CIA and Obama, the illegal massive spying by the NSA and the persecution of whistleblowers like Julian Assange who remains trapped in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London even though he has asylum in Ecuador and has not been charged with a single crime. The ignoring of these crimes continues to fly in the face of international law and is an abomination which continues to undermine the very foundations and belief in the rule of law for all citizens of the world.

Yet the western media continues to spin away everything as if nothing has happened and paint its leaders and military industrial complex as somehow being noble and even more unbelievable, wanted. That is part of the delusional architecture at work here, just as they are ignoring that it is public knowledge that the US/CIA orchestrated the overthrowing of yet another democratically elected government in Ukraine, they continue to ignore and are in denial of the fact that they were never wanted in Afghanistan.

The US invasion and over 12 year occupation of Afghanistan has done nothing positive whatsoever for the Afghan people or the Afghan Government. By some estimates the fighting has killed up to a million Afghanis, opium production has now risen 40 fold making Afghanistan the world’s number one opium producer and the Taliban, who the western media continue to say were somehow defeated are now stronger than ever. As for the 10 or so al-Qaeda fighters that were operating in Afghanistan and who the US supposedly brought in several hundred thousand troops to fight, well they are probably still hanging around somewhere.

We can tell all of the poor Afghan families who have lost children, brothers, husbands and entire families to wanton drone attacks and night raids that it is okay. The US commanders and those in charge of the carnage have learned "lessons." A repeated claim by Generals and politicians. Yes, your country was decimated and destroyed so US/NATO/ISAF could "learn" how to improve their interoperability, fly their little killer drones and use all of their cool night vision murder equipment during their night raids. They also learned how to torture and hone their “enhanced interrogation” skills on your people. As for the opium, well, they learned how to protect the opium fields and in front of the eyes of the world increase production 40 fold while pretending to be fighting against the illegal narcotics trade.

The US is battling a thousand in Afghanistan and is unfortunately also having a problem getting President Karzai to agree to give US personnel legal immunity for its soldiers and contractors. President Karzai may be slightly upset by the thousands of innocent civilians that the US has slaughtered in their wanton drone attacks, but just like in Iraq the "exceptional" Americans believe they should be immune from any law whatsoever when it applies to anywhere other than their own country. This belief that they are above the law everywhere is a psychosis for which there will be no cure until prosecutions begin to be handed down. Something not likely to happen soon as the US even has an act called the "Hague Invasion Act" in case anyone has the nerve to prosecute any American for war crimes.

So back to the pull out. The US wants to keep, what is for them a "small" number of troops (just 10 thousand or so) in Afghanistan until the end of time or has threatened to go for what they are calling a "zero option" (withdrawing all troops), as it did in Iraq, leaving the Afghan forces to battle the bogeymen terrorists by themselves, namely the 5 or so al-Qaeda fighters that may be somewhere in Afghanistan.

The problem is that President Karzai will not sign the security agreement the US wants him to sign to guarantee they can stay. After the phone call between Obama and Karzai White House spokesperson Jay Carney said:"We have made clear that our commitment to Afghanistan – separate from the troop presence – is in our national security interests." He also said: "It is preposterous to suggest [that Karzai’s refusal to sign the BSA] is because we have not made clear that it is to be signed."

Yes that was a correct quote. The US made it clear to Karzai that "… it is to be signed," meaning that Karzai has not followed orders. Let us recall for a moment, Hamid Karzai is not a US Government employee or a member of the White House’s lower level staff, he is the President of Afghanistan. The statement underlines the complete arrogance of the White House and the fact that they really do believe that they own Karzai.

The US White House released a statement which said: "… we will leave open the possibility of concluding a BSA (bilateral security agreement) later this year. However, the longer we go without a BSA, the more challenging it will be to plan and execute any US mission and the more likely it will be that any post-2014 US mission will be smaller in scale and ambition."

If this is true, that the US will actually leave Afghanistan without their BSA, a fact I doubt, then this will surely have the Afghan people dancing in the streets and finally allow the government and the people to concentrate or rebuilding their country, something they will have to do as the US has destroyed all of the infrastructure and annihilated what little the people did have before their invasion. As for the hundreds of thousands if not a million dead civilians, well the US has gotten away with murder so far….

According to Al-Jazeera Chuck Hagel, the US Secretary of Defense (War), said planning for the "zero option" was a prudent step given that Karzai had made clear he is unlikely to sign the security deal. However Hagel is recalcitrant, the US wants to stay, whether they are wanted or not. Hagel added: "The United States will consult closely with NATO allies and ISAF partners in the months ahead, and I look forward to discussing our planning with defence ministers in Brussels this week."

Obama: the 'Hypocrite-in-Chief' Threatens Russia - By John Robles

2 March, 20:36 http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Obama.html

The Federation Council of the Russian Federation has unanimously supported a request by the President of Russia Vladimir Putin to deploy the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation to Ukraine in order to, first and foremost, protect Russian citizens and ethnic Russians from threats to their safety and their lives, to assist in returning the country to a state of normalcy and to bring the situation under control until the such a time as the normalization of the political situation in Ukraine is achieved. 

The Russian Federation has an obligation and the right under international law to protect its citizens in Ukraine and Crimea where the population of Russians is at least 17 percent and approximately 70 percent respectively. The number of people in Ukraine of other nationalities, including the population of Jews which is about 5 percent are also under threat by the neo-nazis who have taken power. The number of people who speak Russian account for almost 90 percent of the population in Ukraine and the number of those who see it as a native language account for as many as 80 percent.

Legal basis for Russian Intervention

Any Russian mission in Ukraine would be strictly of a peace keeping nature and to protect the lives of the civilian population from the US backed neo-nazi thugs who have seized power in Ukraine. Therefore any portrayal in the West and in the western mass media about an "invasion" or "violation" of the territorial or political integrity of Ukraine is completely unfounded and empty propaganda.

Treaties between Ukraine and Russia as well as the requests by the Russian population and the official request by the authorities in the Crimea necessitate Russia to intervene and at a minimum protect Russian citizens, property and interests.

There is also the question of restoring order and the proper workings of the bodies of government which should represent all of the Ukrainian people to Ukraine. The country has been taken over by western backed murderous thugs, mercenaries and neo-nazis in an attempt to install a western puppet government by force and those who are calling themselves the government of Ukraine are doing so while excluding the majority of the Ukrainian population.

Also there are the wishes of the legal authorities of Ukraine and those of the President in exile to have order restored to their country, although no official statements requesting Russian assistance have been made.

The fact is that most Ukrainian "officials" are now operating at what can only be characterized as gun-point and can not make such statements without risking their lives and the lives of their families. The last is particularly important as one of the key methods for terrorizing officials that is being used by the Bandera Nazis, is to threaten the families of officials. Any government functioning under such duress must be assisted and proper order must be restored, something the West seems to have a problem with.

Mass Media Shamefully Goose Stepping in Line

Dear American reader you are being fed lies by your mass media. You are being manipulated by your "leaders" into supporting something that has no place in the modern world and you are supporting another crime against peace which is being carried out in Ukraine.

The Western media have spun the situation in Ukraine as being something it is clearly not in subservient acquiescence to their corporate-intelligence-military-industrial master and leading to a condition where many in the West are in a complete and utter state of denial and in fact living in an alternative universe of their own making.

The True Nature of the "Revolution" in Ukraine

The western media is stunningly complicit in covering up what has really occurred in Ukraine, although things like the leaked Nuland/Pyatt conversation paint a true picture of the US/NATO/EU role in the coup d’état in Ukraine, the western media is forever silent and ignores the reality. Not only have such leaks been ignored but even worse, the real time live footage of "peaceful demonstrators" attacking, setting on fire, murdering and even taking hostage police officers, something which I have repeatedly said should have caused an outcry by American law enforcement officers and the US populace in general, who give their police god-like reverence, has been brushed under the carpet as if it never happened.

The coup d’état in Ukraine (let’s call it for what it was) was in no way a popular uprising. It was the result of a very expensive, long-running and orchestrated campaign by the CIA, the US State Department and other US/NATO elements. One only has to look at the marauders on Maidan Square and footage of crowds in Crimea or other Ukrainian cities to see that something is not right. A popular uprising of the people coming out in peaceful demonstrations would include crowds of all ethnicities and ages and women and even children. Not so on Maidan, we only see young ethnically Ukrainian men in bullet proof vest, military helmets, wielding steel pipes filled with cement and even armed.

These are neo-nazi thugs who the west supports, whose mob chose a government which the West was much too quick to recognize and who the West is calling a legitimate government of the people. The usurpers in the Verhovna Rada can in no way be called a legitimate government. Not one of the so-called "leaders" in Ukraine would win in a fair and peaceful democratic election. The only way they had to fulfill their mad ambitions of power was to do so through violence and the selling out of their country to their American and NATO puppet masters, central of which is Victoria Nuland former us Ambassador to NATO.

The goal of US/NATO is clear and something I have been writing about for years. They want to establish complete global military domination, they want to neutralize and finally break up Russia (into 68 autonomous regions ala Zbignew Brezhinsky) and they want to surround the Russian Federation and the People’s Republic of China with a missile "shield" that will guarantee a successful and unanswered nuclear first strike. That is the black agenda and that is what they are doing. Unfortunately there are troublesome people in the areas they want to control and annex, hence they continue to overthrow and replace governments in covert ways and marginalize and outright kill anyone who comes too close to exposing the true nature of their insidious military takeover.

Ukraine was a textbook CIA coup d’état using "color revolution" infrastructure and resources that were already in place and proven during the past color revolution. The only difference is the armed aspect, for which the neo-nazi groups came into effect. The neo-nazi "Bandera" groups in Ukraine have been training for over a decade for just such a scenario, they were merely finally let loose by the US/NATO.

We know US/NATO collude with, arm, fund, finance, support and even create terrorist groups. We know Al-Qaeda was created by the CIA in Afghanistan, we know they are being supported in Syria. We also know that they CIA has long funded and supported any group in any country, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba, etc who is ready to overthrow a government. It does not matter to the CIA if these groups are made up of homicidal lunatics who would massacre children (Latakia Syria), or murder police and force them to their knees on public squares (Ukraine), or commit genocide (everywhere), what matters is that they allow the CIA to achieve its objectives.

It is important to underline that everything I have written about so far is illegal: forcing regime change through threats, sanctions and covert means is illegal. Arranging coup d’états is illegal. Aggressive and preventive war are illegal. Supporting, importing, training and arming destabilizing violent elements in any country is also illegal.

This is why Ukraine is a victory for international lawlessness because everything the US/NATO/CIA have been doing since, before and during 9-11-2001 has been illegal. Everything from Guantanamo, to drones, to aggressive wars to military expansion: illegal, pure and simple end of discussion. The fact that under the Patriot Act the Brezhinky/Yoo/PNAC planners passed what is called the Hague Invasion Act (which I have written about in the past), an instrument which guarantees they will never come before an international tribunal, is just a further nail in the coffin of their illegality.

It is also important to underline the "CIA/NATO Textbook" nature of the events in Ukraine which followed the OTPOR scenario used in Yugoslavia and the timeline of the Olympic Games invasion of South Ossetia.

It is also important to note the connections between the underground Tatar terrorists in Crimea and their ties to the Bandera nazis. I contend that like in Kosovo, US/NATO may bring about the calling for an independent territory by the Tatars in Crimea, which they will no doubt immediately recognize as legitimate and where they will build Camp Bondsteel 2.0.

Obama’s Threat an Insult to Russia and the World

Now that we have set the record straight and for those of you living in the western media land of Oz where truth is hidden and evil is spun as righteous perhaps it is understandable then why threats from US President Obama against Russian President Putin, the Russian Federation and the Russian people are beyond egregious, insidious or odious but pure evil and no level of spin can make them right (Strong words? Yes of course. But let’s call an apple an apple).

US President Barack Obama warning Russia and thus the President of the Russian Federation and the Russian people that: "There would be costs for any military intervention" is an insult to the Russian people and the free world and should serve to bring home to any Russians and anyone else who were in doubt about the brutal-self-serving-marginalizingl and insidious nature of US foreign policy orchestrated and controlled by Brezhinsky acolytes and neo-conservative chicken hawks who have clearly gone completely off the reservation in their delusional belief of their own exceptionalism in their plan to establish full US control of the planet and American hegemony over the world.

Make no mistake Obama knew of and signed off on US plans for Ukraine going in. If we recall Victoria Nuland’s conversation with Geoffrey Pyatt the US Ambassador to Ukraine which gave the world an insight into the true working of the US Government and the fact that Obama did not sack Nuland, the former ambassador to NATO, then it should be clear that everything is going according to plans okayed by Obama.

Goose Stepping Officials and Allies

The irony of US supporting nazi groups to overthrow the government of Ukraine and my use of the phrase "goose stepping" should not be lost on you dear reader because that is exactly what is happening.

The entire western geopolitical-mass media-military-intelligence-political machine has been unleashed on Ukraine and is working in hyper-drive because it is finally going against the outer periphery of the Russian Federation, the hardest target it has had since 9-11.

The bellicose statements and thinly veiled threats by Obama were initially "put out there" by the likes of Susan Rice and Anders Fogh Rasmussen. In his public statements Rasmussen effectively labeled Ukraine NATO territory (a lie and a clear spin) to prepare the world audience for NATO aggression in Ukraine.

The reason for the threats from Obama, McCain, Susan Rice and even the UK’s William Hague is clear and transparent: the West has plans for Ukraine and they do not want Russia interfering in their annexing of Ukraine.

Just like Nazi Germany annexed country after country the US has been doing the exact same thing since 9-11. The bllod shed we have seen unleashed by the US/NATO since 9-11 in country after country and the testimony of former NATO Commander General Wesley Clark, who revealed a list of countries that were to be destroyed after 9-11, proves this beyond any shadow of a doubt.

Worse Than the nazis

The intentions of hitler and the nazis was clear, their murderous racist intentions and their plans were known to the world. However the US and NATO have hidden their doctrine of aggressive war and world domination by using creative, insidious and covert means and spinning their crimes against humanity with propaganda and language in the mass media. Hence neo-nazi murders on Maidan become "peaceful demonstrators fighting for democracy", aggressive war becomes "humanitarian intervention", global military expansion and the taking over of the world a "war on terror", any leader who is not pliant or a puppet a "despot", "dictator" or "strongman", an independent government "non-democratic" and of course any country which pursues friendly policies with Russia or demands a proper price for their resources becomes "rogue" or "a supporter of terrorism."

The fact that the US controls the bodies of international law and the bodies of last instance worldwide allows them to subvert and ignore international law to their own ends. Therefore the US funding and collusion with terrorists worldwide, with neo-nazis in Ukraine, the overthrowing of governments, the overt and covert subversions of states and their acts of aggressive war (a crime against humanity) continue to go unpunished.

This insidious manipulation of world bodies to allow them to continue to violate international laws and norms and the successful portrayal of their acts of aggressive and the subversion of states as "interventions" and "democracy" building operations makes the US clearly more evil than the nazis. The fact that the endemic American racist policies are being spread worldwide by a black man and by supposed "Zionists" who continue to operate with under the cover of and through the exploitation of the Holocaust to maintain their "untouchable" status is even more evil than anything hitler could have thought up, he himself according to DNA tests not only a Jew but also possessing some black DNA.

Obama’s Stunning Hypocrisy

One has to wonder if the US President is in possession of all of his mental facilities and at the depth and complexity of his delusional architecture when after orchestrating the violent coup in Ukraine and supporting neo-nazi murderers who openly state they want to kill Russians, Jews and blacks he has the unmitigated audacity to say things like: "Any violation of Ukrainian sovereignty would be deeply destabilizing, which is not in the interests of Ukraine, Russia or Europe. It would represent profound interference in the affairs of the Ukrainian people and a violation of international law."

Yes, Obama said: "Any violation of Ukrainian sovereignty would be deeply destabilizing, which is not in the interests of Ukraine, Russia or Europe." So then why is the US meddling in Ukraine? Because it is in fact the destabilization of Ukraine, Russia and Europe that the US seeks. It is part of their policy of divide and conquer and of breaking up countries and perhaps whole continents so that they are easier to control and exploit.

The American Way

Unfortunately for the American people (many who want peace and just want to live their lives and not hurt anybody) brutality and force is the American way. The glorification of violence and force and subjugation is so engrained in the American psyche that it would take a hundred years to counter. Which is why many Americans can swallow and accept that demonstrators who beat unarmed police to death in front of TV cameras and shoot them to death execution style are "fighting for democracy" and "legitimate".

It is the American way to bring warships to the Olympics and drone entire families into oblivion because they are "suspected" of being terrorists. It is the American way to threaten anyone who dissents or exposes the illegality being carried by the government. Terrorizing everyone into silence or inactivity or collusion. It is the American way to demonize and threaten leaders and opponents and anyone who is not under their control. The list is too long but Muammar Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein, Bashar Al-Assad and Vladimir Putin are perfect examples, as are Julian Assange, Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden. I might dare to humbly add myself to the list.

For the world and for Russians in particular it is hard to understand endemic American racism. It is even harder to understand that a black man in the White House is advancing racist polices, but we saw by Obama’s performance at Nelson Mandela’s funeral that he has no regard for his fellow blacks, for Africans or even for his own wife. One only has to look at the photos of him doing selfies at Mandela’s funeral to come to this conclusion and consider his betrayal of the black population in the United States who live worse than they did in the 1960s.

It does not stretch credibility or belief nor is it even apparently out of the ordinary to the average American that their black president would support neo-nazis who are openly calling for the killing of Jews, blacks and Russians. Then ends to them justify the means I suppose. And that is demonizing and crippling Russia. Never mind that 80% of Ukrainians speak Russian or are Russians themselves. This is an abstraction for Americans, as are the poor unarmed police who were beaten to death in the coup d’état.

Neo Con End Game

Although Brezhnisky not long ago stated that "American hegemony" worldwide could not be obtained (a move apparently to distract the world into thinking the PNAC was finished) what we are seeing in Ukraine is part of the Neo-Con PNAC endgame. The goal of the atavism that is NATO, and its US masters is complete domination or Russia and China and their irrational hatred and plans have been heightened and speeded up by several recent events which have seen them growing more and more desperate as Russia begins to take its proper place on the world stage.

Those events include the Snowden affair, the failure to invade Syria and Iraq and the brilliant triumph at the Olympics, which the US desperately tried to through dirt on with their terrorist hysteria. But even more importantly it is Russia’s growing economic and political leadership in the world and its staunch and unwavering calls for respect for international law and the sovereignty of states that has thrown the West into a panic.

In the words of former US Deputy Secretary of Defense Neo-Con Paul Wolfowitz the US had 5 or 10 years to "clean up those old Soviet regimes before the next great super power comes up to challenge us."

The Right Sector Calls for Chechen Terrorist Support

US ignorance of the peoples and the groups that they support to overthrow governments and bring about their coup d’états is no more clearer than it is in Ukraine.

The people the West is calling "peaceful demonstrators" include puppets like Klitschko, neo-nazi leader Tyagnibok and the leader of the "Right Sector" the equally ignorant Dmitry Yarosh who has called on support from Chechen Terrorist leader Doku Umarov for terrorist attacks in Ukraine. Informationally challenged Yarosh had to me reminded by the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov that Umarov has already been liquidated and that Yarosh is headed to the same place that Umarov went to and from which no one has returned.

Yarosh, who also called for the destruction of Russia and interestingly the division of Russia into autonomous regions ala Brezhinsky recently attempted to enlist the aid of Crimean Tatars who according to Ramzan Kadyrov have agreed with him that they will not fight against Russia.

Conclusion

Threats against Russia by the West and by President Obama are just saber rattling bellicose rhetoric by chicken hawks who fight war from bunkers on the other side of the planet, support terrorists and perform weekly extra-judicial drone executions.

I would say that it is Nobel Peace Prize winning Obama and the leaders of what has proven itself to be the world’s number one rogue nation who truly need to "be nervous" over the events in Ukraine. After all their direct involvement in a coup d’état has been uncovered, detailed and published for the world to see, and unless international law and the UN Charter have been changed, orchestrating a coup d’état in a sovereign nation is still illegal.

List of Countries Destroyed by the US

The following is a list of countries where the US has organized coup d’états, supported revolutions, overthrown governments, invaded, annexed, supported groups or forces who overthrew or attempted to overthrow governments or outright executed the leaders.

Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Bosnia, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, China, Colombia, Congo, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Germany, Greece, Grenada, Guam, Guatemala, Haiti, Hawaii, Honduras, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Korea, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Macedonia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, Samoa, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, Uruguay, USSR, Venezuela, Vietnam, Virgin Islands, Yemen, Yugoslavia and Zaire (Congo).

What they have done and are doing to Native Americans might also be added to the list and as the genocide of the indigenous peoples is the foundation of endemic "American" racism and "exceptionalism" must also be mentioned.

Obama Issues Ukraine Statement from an Alternative Universe

5 March, 07:08  http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Obama.html 

Last Friday US President Barack Hussein Obama, the "leader of the free world", a title gratefully no longer applied extensively in public, gave a press briefing on the situation in Ukraine before taking off for the weekend to play golf or paint pictures of dogs or whatever it is American presidents do over the weekend. 

US President Obama's statement was typically empty of substance as was all of the empty rhetoric leading up to what was to have been the invasion of Syria and as one American commentator put it a "vacuous, inexact, and tendentious statement full of the "usual bromides about respecting the sovereignty, territorial integrity, and democratic future of Ukraine." The statement however was typical of the US and their stance of "either you are with us or against us" when it comes to invading and overthrowing the governments of country after country.

Newspeak as a Replacement for Truth

When it comes to the statements regarding the situation in Ukraine by US President Barrack Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and all of the "allies" and media outlets that serve as the US government's private-lock-step-newspeak-echo-chamber: the outright bald faced lies, cavernous omissions, acidic hypocrisy, double standards exponentially growing with each new fabrication, saber-rattling bellicose war rhetoric and twisting of facts and logic, have been so blatant, egregious and patently glib fabrications that it is enough to cause the thinking person's brain to curdle up into a little lumpy mass quivering in terror somewhere in a dark corner inside their heads as they perhaps question their own connection to reality.

Anti-Russian Media Hysteria

The hysteria in the West surrounding Ukraine and the movement of Russian troops into the former Russian territory of Crimea to protect the millions of Russians there, is being fueled by the media and driven and directed by officials in the US corporate/government controlled media. During such a time of escalated tensions in the past some of the American people and people living in surrogate countries such as the UK may have looked toward their leaders, and in particular to the US President, for direction, information and most importantly "leadership" during such times.

However this is no longer the case and the US and western masses, who are already disillusioned, disgusted and disenchanted with their leaders and their media, will find little solace or truth coming from the US White House and unfortunately most of them already know that. Not to add insult to injury, after all Americans in reality really have no choice in who runs their country anymore and they know that better than anyone else, but a recent commentary I wrote titled "Obama: the 'hypocrite-in-chief' threatens Russia" received more than the usual responses and attacks yet no one defended Obama or seemed to take issue with my play on his "Commander in Chief" title.

The Statement: Obama's Obfuscation, Omissions and Lies

Obama: "The Ukrainian people deserve the opportunity to determine their own future. Together with our European allies, we have urged an end to the violence and encouraged Ukrainians to pursue a course in which they stabilize their country, forge a broad-based government..."

Apparently for US/NATO/EU the "Ukrainian people" does not include the Russian speaking population, the Jews and all of the other minorities that have been excluded from the new Maidan-neo-nazi-mob-selected-US-puppet-government. They obviously have no right to determine their future. As for calling for an end to the violence? Obama has left out the fact that it is the US which is directly responsible for the violence and the coup in Ukraine. Which additionally takes the Ukrainian people out of the equation for self-determination.

Obama: "… and we've made clear that they can be part of an international community's effort to support the stability and success of a united Ukraine going forward, which is not only in the interest of the people of Ukraine and the international community, but also in Russia's interest."

The arrogance and of the phrase "we have made it clear that Russia can be a part…" sounds like the "master of the world" speaking from an alternative reality and completely denies the reality that Ukraine is literally in Russia's backyard and direct US meddling in Ukraine has brought about the destruction of a country that is the birthplace of Russian civilization. His use of the phrase "going forward" follows the entire US Government policy of "not looking back" which is just an attempt to escape responsibility for all of the crimes, death and destruction that the US Government has brought about on the world and the American people themselves. When the American people are all homeless in the street or living in FEMA camps I wonder how much they will want to hear "we should not look back". Sanctimoniously adding Russia to the list of countries that he allows to have an interest in Ukraine shows that the US thinks Ukraine is now theirs. They stole it and want to keep it. However this will never stand.

Obama: "… we are now deeply concerned by reports of military movements taken by the Russian Federation inside of Ukraine. Russia has a historic relationship with Ukraine, including cultural and economic ties, and a military facility in Crimea, but any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing, which is not in the interest of Ukraine, Russia, or Europe."

Of course the planners in Washington, the Pentagon and NATO are concerned, they are used to acting with impunity and invading any country they want and overthrowing any leader they want. They have spent over $5 billion dollars on their neo-nazi coup d'état of Ukraine and they do not want anyone to interfere, especially until, as Victoria Nuland put it, "everything is glued together". He ignores the religious, ethnic and language ties but that is understandable from pure ignorance, however talk about sovereignty, coming from the US which has destroyed or killed the leaders of almost 80 countries is what I imagine it would be like listening to hitler talking about human rights violations against Jews.

The rest is almost too much to even read and is making me nauseous but I will responsibly go over it for you dear reader. He continues talking about Russian forces being asked to ensure stability in Crimea and protect the substantial Russian speaking population, something they have done without a single shot being fired, as if it is an invasion. The same propaganda that the US used when the USSR was asked to maintain peace in Afghanistan.

Obama: "… It would represent a profound interference in matters that must be determined by the Ukrainian people. It would be a clear violation of Russia's commitment to respect the independence and sovereignty and borders of Ukraine, and of international laws. And just days after the world came to Russia for the Olympic Games, it would invite the condemnation of nations around the world.

Again hearing a war criminal and the leader of a country that has illegally invaded and destroyed almost 80 countries and who signs off on a weekly drone assassination list of innocent people around the world, and one who believes he is above international law, chide Russia which has insisted on and followed international law for decades is just too much.

He does however mention the Olympics, under the cover of which the US moved 2 warships into the Black Sea but he does not mention that the US coup in Ukraine was organized just like the Georgia/US backed invasion of South Ossetia. Apparently for the CIA the Olympics is a good cover for invading countries.

Obama: "… the United States will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in Ukraine."

This is a direct threat and an insult to the Russian people and the Russian President and all of the people who welcomed Russian Forces in the Crimea. But I am sure the US has gone insane with jealousy after their failure at the Olympics and because their soldiers and mercenary killers have never been welcomed with flowers by anyone. Again Obama excludes Russia, Crimea, China and anyone else from the "international community".

Obama: "…The events of the past several months remind us of how difficult democracy can be in a country with deep divisions. But the Ukrainian people have also reminded us that human beings have a universal right to determine their own future."

What Obama means by "democracy" is in fact US hegemony and control, make no mistake. If he stands behind his words that "human beings have a universal right to determine their own future" then perhaps tomorrow the US will finally pull out of all of the countries it is currently occupying either by force and as a hegemon and once and for all stop meddling in countries all over the world. Also, apparently for Obama the Russian speaking population of Crimea do not count as people. How else to interpret that?

Obama: "…And we will continue to keep all of you in the press corps and the American people informed as events develop."

Has he informed and explained to the American people the real reasons why the US staged a coup in Ukraine and why he is supporting neo-nazis who are calling for the killing of Jews, Blacks and Russians? Has he informed the American people why the US has spent $5 billion in Ukraine when he can not even provide them with elementary health care? Can he explain why his foreign policy establishment is controlled by rabid Russo-phobes who have gone completely off the reservation? Can he explain why Russia, acountry which lost up to 40 million people defeating the Nazis, should allow neo-nazis to kill and slaughter Russians in Ukraine? And lastly can he please tell the American people and the people of the world, finally and once and for all why the US/NATO really need to annex Ukraine and what is the real purpose of NATO's global expansion? I am sure we would all like to know.

State Department Lies

Finally this quote dated March 4, 2014 by John Kerry: "America is proud to be more engaged than ever, and, I believe, is playing as critical a role, perhaps as critical as ever, in pursuit of peace, prosperity, and stability in various parts of the world."

Yes America is playing a critical role in "peace, prosperity and stability". America is preventing it almost everywhere it may appear. Even in their own country with its divisive politics and decimated population.

"Peace, prosperity and stability"?! Tell that to the people of Ukraine whose country the US/CIA/NATO/EU has thrown into chaos and destroyed under the pretext of a delay in signing an EU economic agreement.

Tell that also to the people of Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Bosnia, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, China, Colombia, Congo, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Germany, Greece, Grenada, Guam, Guatemala, Haiti, Hawaii, Honduras, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Korea, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Macedonia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, Samoa, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, Uruguay, USSR, Venezuela, Vietnam, Virgin Islands, Yemen, Yugoslavia and Zaire (Congo). Countries where the US has organized coups, killed leaders and invaded. I am sure they will have a different point of view.

As for the "liar-in-chief"? Let's add "historical-revisionist-ommisionist-in-chief" to his title. He earned it.

US/NATO/CIA/EU Supporting nazis in Ukraine

6 March, 11:30 http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Ukraine.html

The overthrow of the government of Ukraine was an armed coup d’état ordered, planned, organized, funded, carried out and executed by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Pentagon, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and their surrogates in the European Union (EU) using every instrument at their disposal including the National Security Agency (NSA) and all of their amassed media resources. It was carried out with the knowledge and approval of US President Barack Hussein Obama if not at his directive. 

The actions of the US in organizing the armed overthrow and installation of an illegitimate puppet government in Kiev was and continues to be illegal and revelations that continue to be exposed, including the latest regarding the hiring of snipers to kill demonstrators and police, are an outrage and a crime against all humanity that must not be allowed to stand.

Snipers brought in by oppostion

The latest revelations with regard to the coup d’état in Ukraine concern the snipers that were present in an around Maidan Square during the height of the recent violence. According to multiple reports from varied sources including video footage, witness statements, released telephone conversations between officials and even statements by doctors, the snipers were shooting indiscriminately and killing both protestors and members of the security services. Of the almost 400 police officers injured in the clashes and the approximately 82 dead (figures are from initial reports on newswires) almost all of them suffered bullet wounds to the head and neck. More than 20 protestors were also reportedly killed by snipers on February 20th.

Catherine Ashton Urmas Paet conversation leaked

According to multiple reports and sources the snipers on Maidan Square were hired by the Klitschko led opposition that has now assumed itself to be the new government in Kiev. The most damning evidence to date has come in the form of a telephone conversation between EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton and the Estonian Minister of Foreign Affairs Urmas Paet which was intercepted and recorded and has been authenticated by the Estonian Foreign Ministry.

According to the Voice of Russia in comments regarding the conversation Paet said that it had taken place last week, on February 26th, immediately after he returned to Estonia from Ukraine. He also said that it was necessary to conduct an independent investigation into the events on Maidan Square in Kiev and called on those responsible to be prosecuted.

During the conversation Paet voiced his concern that the new “authorities” were not interested in investigating the murders and that it was actually the opposition that had carried them out.

Paet: "And still, people are seriously concerned about the fact that the new coalition is unwilling to investigate what really occurred there . The understanding of the fact that somebody from the new coalition, not Yanukovych, was behind those snipers is becoming more and more strengthened with every passing day."

Ashton: “I think we do want to investigate. I mean, I didn’t pick that up, that’s interesting. Gosh,”

Ashton’s response and her support of the neo-nazi opposition indicates that she knew all along who was behind the attacks and that she was on the inside of the Ukraine Project. Her telling the FM that she thinks we do not want an investigation is chilling. She merely thinks of it as “interesting” is also telling.

According to the transcript Paet was also concerned by the testimony of a doctor who said that both protesters and police were shot at by the same people.

Paet: “And second, what was quite disturbing, this same Olga Bogomolets told as well that all the evidence shows that the people who were killed by snipers from both sides, among policemen and then people from the streets, that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides.” He also added: “She also showed me some photos and said that as a medical doctor she can say that, the same type of bullets were used on both police and protestors.”

Ashton: “Well, yeah…that’s, that’s terrible.”

Ashton says it is terrible but the fact that there has been no outcry from the European Union and no calls from the European Commission for an investigation, which should have come right after she hung up the phone also point to Ashton’s collusion with Nuland and the US on the Ukraine Project.

Whether the EU is merely a pawn in the Ukraine Project or a witting collaborator has yet to be seen but the telephone conversation points to far more knowledge than what has been admitted to and to the fact that everyone is merely operating according to a script that has already been agreed upon and from which no one is allowed to stray.

Russian Foreign Ministry statement

The Russian Foreign Ministry has studied the recordings and issued a statement expressing surprise that the EU had not commented on the recording as they had boisterously commented on the now infamous Nuland/Pyatt “F- the EU” conversation.

"We have paid close attention to this audio recording, and we are surprised to hear that the EU refuses to give its commentary on this score. As you know, some time ago the high-ranking representatives of the EU member countries actively commented on the audio record of Victoria Nuland," a Foreign Ministry official said .

The Russian Foreign Ministry also stated: "As it appears, the European Union is well aware of the fact that the Ukrainian opposition backed the snipers on the Maidan Square!"

The black operations side of the Ukraine project

In documented regime change operations, which Ukraine clearly was, the CIA has classically used snipers to heighten the panic and the terror and in the end to blame whichever side it is against for crimes against the people. In other violent regime change operations terrorist attacks and bombings are also common, usually blamed again on the government, or “the regime” that is targeted for destruction.

In the case of Ukraine the illegitimate “authorities” immediately “filed charges” against the acting President Yanukovich. These charges of course came in unison with choreographed statements by western officials (EU officials, the White House and others), massive choreographed media coverage, showing selected scenes and footage of “poor defenseless peaceful protestors” bloodied and apparently the victims of “the brutal police forces” who themselves were completely unarmed having to face snipers, guns, Molotov cocktails, steel cement filled pipes and highly trained armed protestors bent on killing them.

Western media footage is absent of Berkut troops and police being literally beaten to death, shot to death and taken hostage to be executed later. This does not play with the narrative.

The snipers played two functions; they provided cover for the murderous thugs who were attacking the police and they provided the West with its “victims of a brutal regime”. The western media did not need many victims, the ones they had were enough. The order was probably for 20 protestors and 100 police which would explain the onslaught on the law enforcement officers.

The methodical nature and the timing of the sniper killings point to a carefully planned operation and not to a mob gone mad or crowd control operations by security officers. The sniper killing did not coincide with clashes or the actions of law enforcement bodies and all happened within a few hours. It is not a coincidence that the killings happened in the same period that President Yanukovich was to meet with a delegation from the EU. Very similar to the killing of 426 children in Latakia Syria and the gas attacks in Damscus when Syrian President Bashar Al- Assad had welcomed UN chemical weapons inspectors.

Just as the killing of 426 children was to serve as the pretext for the invasion of Syria, the killing of “civilians” served as the pretext for toppling the government and to charge the president with mass murder.

Reports from witnesses, media and police say that there were foreign mercenaries on Maidan and video footage shows a sniper lair with various shooters including Muslim clad sniper teams, which is backed up by reports that mercenaries and terrorists were brought in from Syria.

Television footage in Russia of one of the “protestors” who was returning to Russia and stopped on the border undergoing questioning, shows him stating under no duress, that there were 50 Americans involved and that he had counted them. During the height of the violence there is also television footage of men running around shouting instructions in English.

The violence is not over in Ukraine. The US/CIA/NATO/EU are growing desperate and having problems getting the Ukrainian people to accept that the murderers and neo-nazis are now their new leaders. Almost no one accepts their legitimacy, except of course western lackeys and politicians who are in on the coup.

The Ukrainian people know there was no popular uprising. A delay in an EU agreement which in fact meant nothing was not something that brought the people out into the streets en-mass, however it was the ridiculous pre-planned pretext that the choreographers had planned.

The goal of turning Ukraine into NATO territory is first on the agenda and later today NATO is expected to push NATO membership documentation through the Verhovnaya Rada. This has to be done before their puppets are all arrested or the people rise up and take their parliament back.

The nazis are having problems on other fronts as well. Recently their “Foreign Minister” made a ridiculous statement to the United Nations that charges from the Soviet Union against the Bandera nazis at the Nuremburg Trials were not legitimate and the Ukrainian Nazis were basically just normal Ukrainians who as the EU recently stated, expressed “real European values”.

The Ukraine scenario is almost identical to the Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya scenarios on the black operations side. The only difference is that air support has not been used, yet. 300 US mercenaries from the former Blackwater/XE/Greystone Limited a subsidiary of Vehicle Services Company LLC, are now in Ukraine to provide illegal “non-state” military support to the thousands of mercenaries already in the country.

Greystone Limited mercenaries are part of what is called “America’s Secret Army.” They are called in when there is no legal basis for an American military intervention and no basis for NATO or other surrogate armies to intervene or provide air-support to their initial illegal internal takeover force, this time the Bandera nazis who have been training for 10 years.

Nuland’s nazi project

In a video briefing to her controllers and press in Washington last December, after returning from her innocent looking but ridiculous doughnut trip, in front of logos from the Chevron and Exxon oil companies, Victoria Nuland, former US Ambassador to NATO, stated that they had spent $5 billion dollars on Ukraine.

Today Obama is set to hand $1 billion to the militants parading as officials and of course there are the billions that have been spent by CIA front USAID, George Soros and the like in the Ukraine Project. So no matter how obvious it is to the world that what occurred in Kiev is an illegal western backed coup, they must keep to their scripts and no amount of evidence against them is going to change their public statements.

Even if the Bandera Nazis start hanging people from street lamps and making nazi salutes at the United Nations, Obama and company are going to continue to call them legitimate and “peaceful demonstrators”. It will not even matter if the Ukrainian people, down to the last woman and child start waving Russian flags, and protesting the Bandera Nazis, the US and the subservient controlled corporate media will continue to follow their own narrative.

Why Nazis in Ukraine? It does not bother Obama or US/NATO/EU who they support in a targeted country. It does not matter to Nuland, who is in fact Jewish herself, if she is supporting the same Nazis that are calling for her brethren to be killed in the street, because they have their objectives. Divide and surround Russia. Remove Russia from Ukraine, establish NATO/US military bases and seize the resources.

Just like in Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia and everywhere else the US has targeted it does not matter who they support and arm and fund as long as the target government is gotten rid of. In South America there are far-right groups. In Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Pakistan and other Middle East countries there is Al-Qaeda (created by the CIA). In Ireland there were Republican paramilitaries, in the Caucuses Chechen terrorists, in Ukraine? Well neo-nazis. They take what they can get as long as their objective is attained.

Why 300 US mercenaries? I would say the violence in Ukraine is just beginning. It takes a lot of death and mayhem to destroy a country. Especially when there is no NATO air-support or a fake UN resolution to allow for bombing. They will have to go house to house and kill anyone who resists, something which Nuland’s peaceful opposition is already doing.

Fake Russian invasion

RT reported about the “Russian invasion of Crimea” and the collusion of the western media as follows: Ukraine’s statement at the UN that 16,000 Russian soldiers have been deployed to Crimea has caused a frenzy among Western media which chooses to ignore that those troops have been there since the late 1990s in accordance with a Kiev-Moscow agreement. Western media describes the situation in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea as if a full-scale Russian invasion were under way, with headlines like: “Ukraine says Russia sent 16,000 troops to Crimea” and “Ukraine crisis deepens as Russia sends more troops into Crimea,” as well as “What can Obama do about Russia's invasion of Crimea?”It seems they have chosen to simply ignore the fact that those Russian troops have been stationed in Crimea for over a decade. Russia’s representative to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, reminded on Tuesday that the deal surrounding the Black Sea Fleet allows Russia to station a contingent of up to 25,000 troops in Ukraine. However, US and British media have mostly chosen to turn a deaf ear.”

No international or other outcry

Has the world been terrorized into silence or does the NSA now control the flow of information so well that no one is getting the truth of what is occurring in Ukraine? Why is no one calling for sanctions or legal measures against the US/NATO/EU for overthrowing a democratically elected European government? How much blood will US/NATO be allowed to spill before the world stands up? Why does it seem that the world is cowering in terror? Even what I thought were die-hard anti-NATO activists have jumped boat and refuse to stand up and protest.

Dear readers and citizens of the world

How many more countries are we going to sit by and watch be destroyed by the US/NATO war machine and their secret armies? When they decide your country is no longer following orders they will come for you too, make no doubt.They rape and pillage they send in illegal armies

These are the ancestors of the same people who committed genocide on the indigenous peoples of North America for their resources. They do not know anything else but violence, force and stealing whatever they need. Are we powerless to stop them?

I would like to leave you with parts of two speeches which I think are completely relevant and topical, although they had different reasons for writing both of these speeches they these words apply exactly to what the US/NATO are doing today, in 2014, a year when all war, hunger and poverty on earth could have been long eradicated:

“There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part! You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels…upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!” - Mario Savio

“It requires a change in outlook, a change in tactics, a change in missions, by the government, by the people, by every businessman or labor leader, and by every newspaper. For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.” – John F Kennedy

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Best wishes.

Ukraine: Eschewing of Truth and Obfuscation by the Western Mass Media

7 March, 06:39   John Robles

The news coverage of the events in Ukraine in the West is just further evidence of the control of information by those in power in the US and the incestuous nature of the corporations and the government, as well as their control of non-US based media outlets. 

With regard to Ukraine it is not only the selective nature and twisting of the facts so that they follow the pre-arranged narrative but the absence of information which is serving not to inform the public but to manipulate and paint a false scenario in the minds of the audience so that the true nefarious nature of the events is not known and so polices and plans for the region may be implemented with no resistance.

As a newsreader, journalist and commentator covering the events in Ukraine who is multi-lingual and with access to hundreds of sources of information I have witnessed more than most can the way the media manipulates the facts to fit their own scenario. Of course due to the fact that many of the sources we have for information coming out of Ukraine are in Russian or Ukrainian many of the stories may not appear correctly in the press, but with the case of Ukraine the slanted coverage is not just because things are being “lost in translation”, but because they are being carefully selected to fit a scenario that is so far from reality as to be approaching fantasy.

There have been many reports of horrendous events in Ukraine in the Russian press and what is left of independent Ukrainian media that are being completely ignored in the western media. These outlets include Reuters, UPI, AFP, DPA, CNN and all of the US corporate “news” networks such as Fox, ABC, CBS and NBC. Many of the attempts at manipulating the public are obvious, such as statements by NATO which imply that somehow Ukraine is their territory and even the renaming of “Maidan Nezalozhnosti” Independence Square to Euro-Maidan, thus implying that the square somehow belongs to Europe, but the absence of balanced reporting is worse. In the interests of informing the public it is my responsibility to report on the current events below.

Buses Being Routinely Attacked

There have been multiple reports and television coverage on Russian media outlets regarding attacks on buses filled with Russians, Crimeans and Russian speaking Ukrainians attempting to leave the areas of conflict. These attacks have typically included beatings, searches, buses being fired upon, passengers suffering broken limbs, gunshot wounds and always humiliation. One report showed all of the passengers of a bus being forced to lay on top of each other in a pile. Witnesses say they were forced to sing the Ukrainian hymn and that passengers had gasoline poured on them with many being set alight. Many buses have also been set on fire including almost all of the busses of one transportation company that the nazis singled out.

Killed Officials, Business Men and Theft of Property

Since the beginning of the reign of terror of the US backed Nazis there have been dozens of reports of government officials, businessmen and others who have had their homes invaded, their families terrorized, been subject to humiliation and in a repeated scenario, were forced to sign the deeds and titles to home and expensive cars over to the marauders. Many have been stabbed, beaten and even murdered.

Opposition Leader Arrested

Several hours ago a pro-Russian opposition leader Pavla Gubareva was arrested while filming an interview with the BBC and has not been heard from since. The western media is ignoring this fact but of course we know what the uproar would have been if for example Klitschko had been arrested for treason and subverting the state. Arresting members of the opposition is always something the US screams about! Why are they silent? Because he was pro-Russian.

Merkel Statement

German Chancellor Angela Merkel broke ranks with the West and went off narrative on Thursday by saying that an independent investigation was necessary to determine who was behind the violence on Maidan Nezalozhnosti Square. This has gotten almost no coverage in the West.

The Snipers

Recent revelations that the snipers who were shooting at both sides on Maidan Square were hired by the Bandera Nazis have received very little attention by the western media and there have been almost no calls for n investigation even though there is credible evidence, witness statements and the like. Of course the Bandera thugs occupying the government are ignoring the issue completely.

The Ashton Conversation

The leaked conversation between European Union Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton and the Foreign Minister of Estonia has gotten almost no attention in the West, however it shows collusion between Ashton and the planners of the events in that she has failed to act or even make a statement on the matter. This fact would of course not fit the narrative.

The Nuland Admissions

The leaked conversation between US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and her subordinate US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt, in which she openly discussed over throwing the government of Ukraine and who would get what posts has gotten almost no attention in the West but in reality should have had her fired had she not been merely following the instructions of her bosses Obama and Kerry. During the conversations she also revealed the level that the UN is just another surrogate of the US and implicated Ban Ki-Moon. Again no outcry or explanation.

In a December briefing released on the internet Nuland also admitted that the “Ukraine Project” had cost the US $5 billion dollars. The mass media and Americans have not taken issue with this, which is surprising given the economic crisis that most Americans are having to live through to pay for American wars and interventions. $5 billion would have bought a lot of books, paid a lot of teachers, provided elementary healthcare for millions and could have been used for much better things than continuing plans for endless and useless NATO expansion. Illegal regime change operations.

The Klitschko/UDAR/Right Sector E-Mails

Thanks to Anonymous Ukraine the world was privy to the fact that Vitaly Klitschko was committing treason against Ukraine and directly involved in destabilizing the country on the orders of his foreign masters. Again no coverage. A crime against the people of Ukraine.

The McCain Trips

McCain and Nuland’s trips to Ukraine in support of people who staged a coup d’état and the armed takeover and ousting of a democratically elected government get no play for what they were: direct meddling into the internal affairs of a sovereign nation. This is illegal under international law.

The Nature of the Opposition

Almost nowhere is there detailed coverage of who the Bandera nazis really are and who Tyganbok and Yarosh are. They are in fact terrorists and Nazis who only represent the worst elements in Ukraine but the West has not taken issue with that and continues to stunningly portray them as legitimate peaceful opposition.

The Bandera nazis were responsible for killing 100,000 Jews, Poles, Turks, Russians and anyone else they considered to be “mud” people. The tactics they are using today are the same tactics they used during World War II. Other than hanging people from lampposts. However there are unconfirmed reports of mass shooting and the dumping of bodies into dumpsters.

The Illegality of the Coup

Those in the Verhovnaya Rada in Ukraine pretending to be ministers, officials and to speak for the people are making a mockery of the word democracy right in front of the eyes of the world. The West takes no issue with this and nowhere is there footage or reports of how the government was first removed by force and then chosen on a stage in front of a violent mob.

The NATO Expansion Plan

NATO’s plans for forcing Ukraine into the alliance, apparently whether it wants to be or not is another issue that is getting almost no coverage in the West and one that even some of the what were staunch anti-NATO activists for some reason refuse to touch upon.

The Olympic Timing

Almost nowhere is the fact that the stationing of US warships in the Black Sea and the explosion of the events in Ukraine were timed to perfectly match the Sochi Olympic Games, just as the invasion of South Ossetia was timed.

The United Nations Nuremburg Trial Denial

The recent statements by Yuri Sergeev a Ukrainian Representative to the United Nations, that the indictments brought by the USSR at the Nuremberg Trials were not legitimate has received no coverage in the West. This denial is not only an insult to Russia, the USSR, Jews, and everyone who died in World War II and anyone who fought to stop the nazis vermin.

Russia lost more people than any other country stopping the nazis, losing up to 40 million people and the war was won on the Eastern Front. This is also not spoken about in the West.

The Russian Invasion Lie

Lastly for now is the big lie about a “Russian Invasion of Crimea”. The Russian troops that were in Ukraine have been there for decades. Russia has an agreement with Ukraine to station up to 25,000 troops in Ukraine. Nothing more need to be said there.

The following are links in the Russian language to coverage of all of the aforementioned issues. Unfortunately, as I have stated these very important events are being for the most part ignored in the western mass media.

Ukraine: Obama's Invasions, 9-11 and US Mass Media Control

8 March, 17:36   John Robles 

Ukraine: Obama's invasions, 9-11 and mass media control

The coup d'état in Ukraine and its aftermath as well all of the events leading up to it are proving even to the casual thinking observer that the western corporate controlled media has lost any semblance of even a pretense at being fair, balanced and reasonable. 

News is about presenting facts and those facts are important for all of us to come to conclusions or formulate an opinion. When the presentation of those facts is being done in a limited, selective and or tainted manner and/or outright fictitious information is being given in such a way as to seem credible and painting itself as truth this stifles debate and makes any dissention or wavering from the narrative seem disreputable and easy to be discounted. Sadly there is almost no alternative in the English speaking world to the state/corporate controlled media or its surrogates.

For those in the West (namely those living in zones controlled by NSA/US/FVEY corporate surveillance and control) and those living in the media bubble that exists there, there is almost now no access for the masses to the truth as almost every form of alternative media has already been compromised and taken over or has been made obscure by the search engines and other methods so that the little truth that is out there is almost impossible for the common consumer to access or even be aware of.

All of this has been done in mostly hidden and secret ways and when any resistance has been met the drum of patriotism is beaten, the bogeyman of terrorism is rolled out and the government censorship and stripping of rights and freedom of information is allowed in the name of security. The methods have been as benign as search engines deleting sites and material from their caches and not indexing certain sites (this occurred widely during the second Bush election and after 9-11) to attempts to pass far reaching legislation such as SOPA/PIPA and other instruments of authoritarian control.

One might say the current paradigm all started with an announcement by a previously unheard of "news service" called Fox News that George Bush had won the presidency after it had already been declared for Al Gore. This was the initial coup in the United States carried out by the neo-conservatives architects behind the PNAC which led to the total coup and usurping of all organs of power in the US that occurred after 9-11. The PNAC collaborators in 9-11 needed 9-11 as a catalyst for their plans which included: the introduction of a complete and total security and surveillance state, funding for the military industrial surveillance complex which was to expand to unheard of levels, complete control of the media and the world wide web, continuing operations to terrorize the populace into submission and allow for the passing of legislation, unification of corporations and government, total political control and the total control of all financial instruments and markets needed to fund their plans.

If one is to believe that 9-11 was not carried out by some Muslim terrorists operating out of a cave in Afghanistan due to the razor sharp precision and the almost perfectly timed choreography with which the most exacting demolitions in the history of man took place, then questions need to be answered. With regard to media control 9-11 showed how the media played a vital role, they first spread the Osama bogeyman lie (even though he himself denied involvement) then they assisted in the cover up that has followed since day one.

Such a crime of historic proportions needed an apparatus of historic proportions to cover it up and the crackdown on the internet and the mass media were those tools. The revelations by Edward Snowden may show the individual working parts and certain pieces of the puzzle but Edward Snowden would not have been allowed access to anything close to the final plan. In order for one to fully comprehend and accept that final plan requires the acceptance that the entire US/NSA security apparatus is designed for two principle purposes, protecting the crimes of the state and those in power controlling it and allowing for the carrying out of wars of aggression with the end goal of complete and total global domination. That is the final "solution" hence anything that is applied to that end is allowed to stand no matter how egregious or illegal, even the murder of 2,999 civilians.

To carry out their objectives, dictated by a small circle of tyrants hiding in the shadows who had seized power, control of the media and the flow of information was vital and the stifling of dissent as well. Hence Obama and his war on journalism, whistle blowers and anyone who seeks the truth. One has only to look at the history of Fox News (and their "Fox Security" operations, akin to the nazi brown shirts) and the spying and intimidation of journalists recently uncovered in the Verizon scandal. This complete control of the media is official US policy backed by Obama, and the current alternative universe reporting on Ukraine is a testament to their effectiveness if not believeability.

The list of victims of those who have suffered at the hands of the regime in the United States is much too long to list here and there are thousands who have fallen and that we will never know about these include members of Anonymous and Hacktivists such as Jeremy Hammond, publishers and truth seekers such as WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, over 600 people who witnessed events on 9-11 and then died in mysterious circumstances, what were reported to be over 9,000 Americans who were rounded up and held under conditions of secret arrest after 9-11, whistle blowers and truth seekers (many of whom I have had the honor to talk to and interview) including Jesselyn Radack (one of the first post 9-11 victims), Bradley Manning, Wayne Madsen, Dr. Kevin Barret, Edward Snowden and the list goes on and on(if I have neglected to list anyone I apologize).

Ukraine: the straw that breaks the back

The US operation to overthrow Ukraine may be the final downfall of the Brezhinsky architects (in my own opinion) and the architects behind establishing US hegemony on the planet. Not only will the US suffer a military humiliation if they decide to attempt to "glue together" their little "project" through open military means but this may finally be the straw that sees the mass murderers in Washington being forced to face an accounting for every crime they have committed since and including 9-11.

Economically they are weak, militarily they are over extended and no matter how much NATO attempts to paint a picture of itself as a "global strike force" their support is waning and they do not have enough force in pace to bring their plan to an fruition. Even if they attempt to obtain control of space and the Arctic they will have to contend with Russia, China and a growing number of countries that have simply had enough of America, their stealing of resources and endless war.

The planners of the Ukraine operation, i.e. Nuland, in all honesty should have been fired. In planning their coup not only did they use all of the instruments and methods that the world is already familiar with and that the "brains" at the CIA think are "top-secret" but they allowed for those plans and intentions to be leaked and not only in the Nuland/Pyatt conversation and the Klitschko e-mails but in hundreds of other ways as well.

Just like the CIA thought Russian intelligence did not know that the Chechen terrorists were controlled by Saudis so they think all of their mercenaries and instruments in Ukraine are secret. Russian intelligence knows far more about 9-11 and all of the plans for global domination that the US has and there may come a time when those responsible will have to account to the world for everything they have done. That is my own personal firm belief.

The Big Ukraine Lies

Back to the media but first let me say I am sorry dear reader for being long winded, this is a matter that is of utmost importance and affects each and every one of us. For we are all human beings, we all desire peace (most of us) and prosperity and we all have a right to live in a world that we can be proud of, free in, and where we can determine our own fates.

The western media coverage regarding Ukraine has been so egregiously falsified that if the general public learns the level at which they have been lied to the consequences will be far reaching and negatively impact the medias future ability to "get their message out" to the world's public.

The lack of objectivity and outright lies in the western press are so insidiousness as to be nauseating and the fact that the actions of the western architects and their operatives in Ukraine have caused death make the press who is covering up these crimes possible criminal accessories to murder before during and after the fact.

Had the media been doing its job on the day Fox News appeared and annulled the popular vote of Al Gore, hundreds of shattered lives would have been saved today in Ukraine, millions all over the Middle East and 2,999 innocent people on 9-11. But let's not go there? As Obama loves to say "let's look forward"! Will that wash this time? Not likely.

Big Lie 1

The EU integration agreement offered nothing positive to Ukraine. It required Ukraine to basically shut down all of its manufacturing and machine building sector. It also required Ukraine to almost cease all trade agreements with Russia and it would have had a hundred more damaging effects on the population including the gutting of the entire agricultural sector and the raising of gas prices. In numbers the EU agreement would have given Ukraine $1 billion dollars over 7 years (the same $1 billion Obama is offering Ukraine now with thousands of political strings attached). The EU agreement and their money would also effectively subvert the sovereignty of Ukraine making Ukraine nothing more than a cheap hooker for the West.

The Customs Union offered Ukraine a minimum of $100 billion over 7 years with no political strings attached and the ability to maintain and expand the industrial, manufacturing and agricultural sectors.

Hence the need to destroy Ukraine. Now the house is burnt and the new owners can have a fire sale especially for Washington. The western media has not covered these aspects at all. Instead they are following the narrative of freedom, democracy etc ad-nauseum. When you think about it, $6 billion is pretty cheap for an entire country, especially the second largest in Europe, apart from the part of Russia that is in Europe.

Big Lie 2

The "peaceful demonstrators" are in no way part of a popular uprising. They are western backed, militarily trained and pursuing objectives that in no way represent the Ukrainian people. Unless of course the 99% of Ukrainians who are not Bandera Nazis do not count. I believe they would beg to differ.

Their invasion of Kiev and the overthrow of the government was not in any way a democratic or other justifiable process. It was an armed take over and insurrection and the ousting of the government and the president was a coup d'état. Plain and simple.

Big Lie 3

The next lie is repeated over and over again in the western media, like John Kerry repeating over and over again that Syrian President Bashar Al Assad used chemical weapons because they simply "know" (while failing to provide one piece of evidence), and just as attempted fabrication, it rings hollow. Lie number three is that those in power in Kiev are legitimate. Of course this is an old American style operational tactic that they have been using for over 200 years. It is how they committed genocide on the Indians and stole their lands. They burn the house down, send in the sellers who claim to own the property, call them legitimate and then buy the goods for nothing.

Having any business with these illegitimate bodies in Kiev may seem like in a good move to the American planners in their desperation to "glue the thing together" and they will no doubt carry out such moves, but they will not stand the test of time. In reality Ukraine was lost the minute it was revealed that Klitschko was a western puppet, but as Nuland said they had already invested $5 billion in Ukraine so they had to go forward. Hence no matter what, even if the nazis in Kiev start hanging Jews from street posts, the US will continue to call them legitimate.

The western media is also conveniently missing all of the reports about the snipers and that they were hired by the western-backed "opposition". These snipers were firing primarily on security personnel but were also used to kill demonstrators to give the West is pretext to criminalize the President of Ukraine as a mass-murderer. Reports are also ignored that one of the Maidan leaders was stopped and allowed to continue merriliy on his way after a M-16 based sniper rifle with a silencer was discovered in his trunk. Evidence of all of this was brought up to Catherine Ashton, the head of EU Foreign Policy, who responded by saying it should not be investigated, this too has been ignored.

Other evidence pointing to the illegitimate and outright criminality of the "new powers in Kiev" are the brown shirt nazi SA/SS tactics of the insurrectionists in Ukraine and they way they have terrorized, humiliated and are even slaughtering the populace. The openly murdered, shot and even kidnapped police and Berkut officers to be executed later. All that and their campaign of terror against offcials and mayhem in the streets are also being ignored. And finally, perhaps the most telling indicator as to the true nazi nature of the "peaceful demonstrators who represent the Ukrainian people", is the statement to the United Nations denying the Holocaust in Ukraine and their ridiculous arguments against the findings of the Nuremberg Trials. Of course all of these facts do not fit in with the "freedom and democracy" narrative so these facts are just ignored.

Big Lie 4

All activities by the US/NATO/EU and I mean ALL activities, that try to influence Ukraine into giving up its sovereignty are violations of international law and go against the UN Charter, in particular with regard to sovereignty and the rights of peoples to self-determination and to be free from fear of invasion. If one is interested please visit the UN website, the UN Charter is available on-line. If one strictly follows the UN Charter as a framework for international law then even the "operations" of USAID become illegal as they are designed to influence the internal processes of target countries.

The US has no "interests" in Ukraine, other than illegal ones. Russia on the other hand has millions of Russians living there and has military and governmental agreements that allow it to protect its real interests.

However the US loves to claim "interests" or a "threat to its security" every time it invades a country. Where were the real interests in Syria, Libya, Afghanistan and Iraq? Its "interests" are the resources and the exploitation of the territories. But just like the US was founded on genocide, the stealing of Indian lands and resources and built by slaves, they continue in the exact same vein. If you doubt go back to footage and news reports before WWII and during the cold war, the US behaved almost in the same manner as it is now. Sanctions, meddling, supporting one side against the other, fumbling around like a bully not sure who to punch, supporting the nazis, then the allies then claiming victory.

Big Lie 5

The western press is screaming about a Russian invasion of Crimea and Ukraine and how the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin is in some way guilty of exactly what the US has been doing for decades. Although thankfully the people around the world are finally beginning to wake up, the US media continues spreading these lies and ignoring what Bush/Obama have done.

The Armed Forces and the Government of the Russian Federation have treaties and agreements with Ukraine allowing for the Black Sea Fleet and the stationing of 25,000 military personnel in Ukraine. Dearest reader, there was no invasion. The troops have been there for over a decade.

The Russian President, as the Commander in Chief of the Russian Armed Forces has been given the right by the Russian Government with the support of the Russian people to call those forces into duty. He also has a request from the legitimate President of Ukraine Victor Yanukovich and the Parliament and the head of Crimea to activate the forces to protect the peace and the lives of the citizens. President Putin also has the legal basis under international law and would be in complete compliance with all international laws and norms to activate these troops, but he has not.

The Ukrainian Armed Forces, without a single shot being fired are now under the control of the only legitimate power in Ukraine, the Crimean authorities. There was no invasion or takeover by Russia. Russia was welcomed with flowers and open arms. Literally.

Some US based law scholars and others are seemingly in shock that Russia is operating legally and within the framework of international law, they continue to blame President Putin for the same illegality that Bush/Obama are guilty of and apparently assume that other countries ignore international law in the same way the US does. All they had to do was listen ro staements from Russia's leaders for the last 20 years: the Russian Federation, its leaders and its people support respect for sovereignty, international law, the rights of peoples to self-determination, the development of societies, foreign relations based on mutual respect and mutual assistance with no strings attached and above all to diplomatic and peaceful processes for conflict resolution.

These are the concepts that Russia lives by and conducts its affairs by. They are not abstractions and rules to be ignored and skirted, manipulated and subverted and applied only to others when the convenience arises as Washington has taken to doing openly.

The international lawlessness of the United States, a country that has sent 300 and more mercenaries in Ukraine to wage an illegal campaign of subversion and terror, can not be allowed to stand much longer. This lawlessness is exemplified by the illegal torture dungeon at Guantanamo Bay Cuba. No country, no leader, and no people anywhere in the world should support such a power, while that key symbol of US lawlessness is still standing, we know they scoff at you and me and the entire world and every single one of us who tries to live a peaceful productive life and follow the rule of law. Law is what makes us civilized and without law, what we will have is the coming of the Fourth Reich, and that Reich is not a German one, but the only thing that the US has that can be called "Made in America".

I would like to say that I am grateful to the Voice of Russia for allowing the truth to be printed and hope that you dear readers will see through the charade and support the people in Ukraine and the Crimea, who still have the right to self-determination, no matter what the Bandera nazis and their western handlers say.

I am also being accused of lying when I say that Russia has not invaded Ukraine. Please do a simple web search and you will find the agreements signed by Russia and Ukraine which allow for the stationing of approximately 25,000 Russian troops in Ukraine. These are not abstractions, but real concrete legally binding agreements under all international and national laws and conventions. Once you understand that simple fact, you will understand the level that you are being lied to by your media and I would then ask you to direct your rage at them.

I would also ask you, dear reader, to try to find coverage of the statements by the new Ukrainian authorities which amount to Holocaust Denial as they openly stated in front of the UN that the Nuremberg Trials were illegitimate, after that write to the White House and ask Obama how they can possibly support these people. As far as I know Holocaust Denial and denying the legitimacy of the Nuremburg Trials are still crimes in many countries that still follow the rule of law, including in Russia.

Please support the people of Ukraine and Crimea as they battle a new emergence of the nazi plague, something most of the world had thought was relegated to the history books.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this article and I hope this will lead to a healthy and long overdue debate. I can be reached at \

US/NATO Lawlessness, Post-USSR Dehumanization and the 1% - By John Robles

11 March, 08:08  http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Civilization.html

With the end of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and hence an end to a movement toward world Socialism and Communism we have seen the dehumanizing forces of capitalism spreading throughout the world and stifling the will and the very nature of the people and the human race as a whole. 

Communism was supposed to lift up the proletariat and raise the workers to the status of those who governed them while bringing those in the ruling class down to a level that was closer to that of the people they were supposed to be ruling.

This very concept was the antithesis of Capitalism, which under the pretense of allowing for opportunities for those who worked hard to rise up socially and economically, was believed to be better than Communism. Yet western Capitalism has now shown itself for what it truly is, a system where only those at the top can prosper and control the rest leading to the creation and rule of what we have in the world today, the 1 percent.

The end of the USSR was not just the end of the greatest power that the history of mankind has seen but also the signaled the end of the idea that the worker, the proletariat, and thus the general human population for under Communism we were all workers, also had the right to human dignity and were also just as important than those who are gifted with being able to hold and maintain power and wealth. In other words the ruling class. Without the USSR as a balance and a threat to global capitalism those in power and those at the top of the capitalist system were free to begin the complete and total dehumanization of the 99%.

As has become the vernacular this ruling class is now called the 1% (thanks to the Occupy Movement) and the standard dehumanizing term, I say dehumanizing because it removes the concept of class and oppressor from the equation and turns them into just a number protecting their identities. But what is the 1%? The 1% is an official union of elites and monied corporate interests that have subverted and taken over the government of the United States and its allies and are literally attempting to take over the world, subjugate and enslave its people and control all of the lands, resources and most importantly capital.

The 1% do not have a political or ideological platform with which they interface with the people of the world. They also are free from the constraints of international law, sovereignty and national or state loyalty. They have one goal, the complete and total taking over of the world. Hence the 1% are free to include almost anyone in their “club” be they Nazis, Jews, Muslims, Evangelical Christians, or anyone else. The only requirement is huge amassed wealth and the willingness to use power and subvert peoples and governments to assist in the fulfilling of their master plan which is a New World Order (NOW) and a one world government which will cement their control of ALL peoples countries and resources.

The USSR was not pliable or workable into such a plan, the very idea of Communism, that the individual was important was the antithesis of their aspirations and hence had to be destroyed. Thus the United States was chosen as the instrument (if not the instigator) and the state to facilitate this takeover. The political, social-economic conditions and more importantly the instruments for iron state control were already in place. What they needed was a catalyst and an event to bring about their plan. This was drawn up by a neo-conservative think tank called the Project for a New American Century (PNAC).

The PNAC thought they were drawing up a plan for establishing American hegemony worldwide and American control of the world but they were mistaken, the end plan calls for the end of the United States as it was originally conceived. With a people completely subjugated and in no way “free” or living in a democracy. Engaging and manipulating the neo-conservative thinkers and believers and those on the far right was necessary because they were effective in demonizing and gathering support to dehumanize and subjugate the rest of the population. This dehumanization is key to establishing their NWO. People must not believe they have no power or are important, people must not believe they can stop the 1% and even more importantly the people must be brought to believing they have absolutely no rights or liberties or willingly give those up.

9-11 was the catalyst that brought it all together. It allowed for the military industrial complex and the organs of state security to establish a dictatorship of security and to expand their reach beyond national borders and spread word wide. It was also more important in that, while calling it an outrage and the reason for the stripping away of rights necessary for the introduction of the endless-war-hyper-security-paradigm, it showed to those who questioned the official version, and those who rightfully understood that something was wrong, that humans were valueless and could be wiped off the face of the earth at will and nothing would ever be done about it. 9-11 was also important because it proved that the global 1% could in fact do whatever it was they wanted and work in unison.

Everything we have seen, the internet, the violent repression of the Occupy Movement, the continued destruction and targeting of independent thinking and socialist states, the iron control and manipulation of the media, the illegal detention of hundreds at Guantanamo, the trampling on the rights of whistleblowers and those who seek the truth, the continued advance against Russia and China and the overthrow and destruction of state after state are all part of their plan. You are not human to them, your country is not important to them, they will destroy and subjugate you and your people and as they want you to believe, there is nothing you can do about it.

Who Are the 1%?

Saying we will never know who they are will only be serving their interests. I argue that we will know (if in fact we do not already know “shudder”) and that knowledge will be made available to the people soon, no matter how hard the 1% have tried to obfuscate and stay in the shadows.

Judging by what we have seen and perhaps more importantly, what we have not seen, the 1% is actually a circle of individuals much smaller than what has been publicized to date. They are compartmentalized and organized in tiers with only need to know knowledge of their part of the “master plan”. Behind it, in the shadows, and at the top with full knowledge there may only be as little as 3-7 people.

Note: Describing a global conspiracy of this scale from the outside is not really possible and may be an effort in futility but it is one that has to be done, for it is necessary for you dear reader to understand what we are being subjected to. I do not claim to have the answers, I merely wish to report on my observations and conclusions.

At the top of the hierarchy are the heads of the key instruments of control. But even these individuals, no matter how powerful they are or appear to be are not privy to the master plan. These individuals are changed at will when they either know too much or are no longer performing their proper function. In the US Government they include the President of the United States, the heads of the CIA, the NSA, the FBI, the Federal Reserve, the Department of Justice, the newly formed DHS, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and all other instruments of control.

In the public domain and internationally this tier is populated by the heads of international financial institutions, military, scientific and energy bodies and alliances, legal and regulatory bodies, educational organizations, energy and agricultural trade bodies, medical associations and media conglomerates, including: the UN, the IMF, NATO, the ICC, the IAEA, the EU and almost the entire global network of corporate media.

Internationally this tier is also populated by the heads of state of “allied” nations, the directors of intelligence services and militaries and the heads of central banks and exchanges and financial bodies. Again this of course includes the global media. In order to ensure the control and manipulation of these bodies internationally the NSA and FVEY countries use all of the resources at their disposal to ensure control. This is why the Snowden revelations have caused such a stir among the US elites.

The NWO requires global cooperation in subjugating and controlling the masses and manipulating economies and all spheres of societal and political life. If one is to accept that the events of 9-11 were an orchestrated inside job to serve as a catalyst towards global takeover and that it was a joint US/Israeli/Saudi operation then the level of this “cooperation” and the lengths they will go has been revealed.

Saudi control of Al-Qaeda throughout the Middle East was revealed by the head of Saudi’s intelligence, Prince Bandar last June in a released conversation with President Vladimir Putin, during which attempted to bribe and then threaten the Russian leader with terrorist acts. Bandar, a long Bush family friend, also admitted that Chechen terrorists and terrorists in Syria were under his control.

Connections between Israeli Mossad and Saudi in 9-11 are documented all over the internet even though all such claims are demonized and marginalized as conspiracy theories. Since the US Government has never properly investigated the events or offered a believable explanation and in light of confessions and admissions by elites such as Larry Silverstein and John Kerry on orders to “pull” demolish the WTC buildings these Saudi/Mossad/Al-Qaeda/CIA connections take on more meaning.

So who is the 1%? Who is really in power and control of the world and who are the members of the alliance and what is their agenda? President Putin and the leaders of the BRICS are definitely not part of the conspiracy, I think that is clear but the list of players may or may not surprise you. These are mostly hereditary power brokers and their families who have stayed in the shadows but maintained their positions some for over a hundred years.

If like with any crime we look at who has benefitted the most and follow the rule that these people will not make themselves known then among the top 7 suspects and beneficiaries are the following: The Rockefeller Family, the Morgan Family and the Carnegie Family are probably at the top, with the House of Saud, the Bush Family, the Vanderbilt Family, the hidden owners of nazi founded Volkswagen, Benyamin Netanyahu and representatives of MOSSAD and Israel and perhaps one or two others on the second tier.

These families and their relatives and cronies control almost the entire US military industrial complex (GE, Raytheon and others), big oil (Exxon, Shell, ets.), manufacturing, agriculture and food production. Through indirect influence and even direct positions in the government, such as John Rockefeller IV and his stints on the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, they control almost every aspect of the American Government.

Many members of these families have also been key in developing CIA and the western intelligence apparatus and many of the most odious CIA programs, including eugenics and race control through genetic manipulation. They were also key in allowing 40,000 nazis to find refuge in the US after WWII and many have benefitted from and even implemented nazi ideas, scientific research and plans into being. One might spread this to Europe and ask why the founder of the European Commission and Union Walter Hallstein was a captured nazi lawyer who was taken to America and then released.

It is also interesting to note that nazi style eugenics was not the creation of the Nazis but was something invented in America and funded by the Carnegie family long before the nazis ever existed.

Israeli ties to the 1% are largely in banking, diplomacy and media control and include Gerald Levin, the Bronfman family, Tanley Gold, Sumner Redstone, Dennis Dammerman, Peter Chernin, Samuel Newhouse and Shamrock Holdings, these are Jewish individuals and Israeli holdings which control almost all of the western media and world media through subsidiaries. Their US media control includes: ABC, NBC, CBS, the Turner Broadcasting System, CNN, MTV, Universal Studios, MCA Records, Geffen Records, DGC Records, GRP Records, Rising Tide Records, Curb/Universal Records, Interscope Records and many hundreds of more magazines, web sites and newspapers.

Middle East and Muslim ties are also prevalent but they are mostly related to terrorism, oil and filling orders for Israel and the US with regard to the Middle East as well as international terrorism and false flag attacks.

Another group of particular interest is the Bilderberg Group and who the real hidden organizers and funders of that forum may be, their agenda is clearly one of maintaining the 1%’s hold on the power and wealth of the planet and clearly they have targeted Russia and excluded it from their elite club. Their last secret meeting included Russia on the agenda and unifying the US and Europe.

Aspects of Dehumanization

In order for these elites to continue to rule and exploit the world and the masses one of the key aspects of their control is dehumanizing their targets. Like the nazis stripped the Jews of their citizenship before they killing them, modern elites also dehumanize and degrade their targets.

In the modern world this dehumanization has taken many new and interesting forms. Things that Marx and Lenin would have never dreamed about when fighting the dehumanizing aspects of the industrial revolution on the Proletariat; a concept and member of the world community which modern day elites and media do not even admit exists.

Dehumanization is necessary when injustice is carried out on people and peoples. It is also a necessary ingredient for genocide and the justification of apartheid like policies and the maintenance of the ruling class in power.

The United States, a country founded on genocide and built by slaves, was the master in dehumanization. The indigenous people the committed genocide against they simply branded as animals, the slaves as sub-human. Those polices of genocide have never been annulled and that over-all thinking continues to this day and may have been the inspiration for nazi eugenics.

The dehumanization that occurs today is much more subtle but includes many different faces and means to keep the populace down and keep the elites in power. One of the most insidious is the restriction of healthcare to the rich and the privileged. Another is making education only accessible to the elites another is the continued existence of policies and unspoken rules that do not allow “minorities” to enter the upper ranks of the capitalist system.

The Anonymous Movement

While Anonymous activists fight for social justice and the beautiful things that make us human, the very mask they wear has a dehumanizing aspect on the world’s population. Why a white man and a English folk hero who is openly burned in effigy? This figure means nothing to blacks and other ethnic groups who also have legitimate complaints against persecution. Not only is the mask dehumanizing in and of itself but the treatment of hacktivists from Anonymous is also dehumanizing. The power elites make sure that the real hacktivists receive ungodly prison sentences while the rest are terrorized into hiding behind their masks. A necessity to escape a fate worse than death.

To the average consumer of media the mask immediately has an association with a person who was an enemy of the state and for most of the population, who does not take the time to find out who exactly Guy Fawkes was and what he did, when the Anon member receives the same fate as Fawkes there is little outcry.

The very act of hactivism is also dehumanizing but also works in the service of the elites. They know that a simple DDoS attack does nothing but it is portrayed as being something monstrous. This has led to many people who would be out on the streets taking part in real demonstrations and becoming involved in politics sitting at their computers thinking that they can make a real difference. This is good for the elites because it keeps their “opposition” fragmented, disorganized and weak and it keeps the real protestors off the streets and away from real demonstrations where they can be seen and thus be more effective.

The Occupy Movement

While the goals of the Occupy Movement were also noble and honorable the elite managed to infiltrate and subvert the movement. The simplest tactics was to give them so many things to complain about that the movement imploded and fragmented under the weight of too many different causes.

This conglomeration of causes led to a dehumanizing aspect of the Occupiers, they were not people fighting for equality, for example, but just a bunch of social malcontents whose fates were no longer of any importance to the masses.

The Internet

While we now can not live without it, the internet has had the most divisive and dehumanizing effect on the world’s population. People have literally forgotten many of the social skills and social interactions that kept the people together.

Computers have dumbed down the educational level and thus the knowledge of people worldwide with children now not even knowing how to write a normal letter and almost incapable of normal human interaction. This dumbed down populace glued to their screens and gadgets is very useful and beneficial for the 1%. They are easy to control and track and manipulate.

Technology

While technology is supposed to improve our lives and the lives of the people the most important advances; the gadgets and devices and cars and computers require constant funds to obtain them and literally turn many into slaves for their gadgets. Then there is the endless time that people spend interacting with their gadgets. Time that could be spent reading, interacting, discussing, building relationships and alliances, and again becoming involved in politics and fighting for social justice. For this reason for the 1% gadgets and technology are a wonderful diversion from the real issues.

Economic Manipulation

The key tool in dehumanizing people is economic manipulation. That is why economic crisis, job uncertainty, inflation and low wages are beneficial for the 1%. If the populace is kept afraid, poor and beggarly they are easy to manipulate and control. Making the instruments to obtain economic freedom and independence, education, documents and the like are therefore things that should be almost unattainable.

The dehumanization and instilling in the populace the belief that they are economically worthless or at risk works wonderfully for the 1% to keep people obedient and pliant. This makes sure that workers will not protest or go against the rulers or the state out of simple fear of losing their jobs and their very livelihoods.

While discussing economic manipulation we cannot forget usury and the way that the populace is manipulated by interest rates, credits and mortgages into literally becoming slaves of the 1%. Think about this for a minute: why shouldn’t you as a human being have the right to have a home, just as Mr. 1% does? This is an aspect of Capitalism that maintains the status quo, and the bankers do more, they maintain the racial supremacy by only allowing certain race groups to obtain loans. Just ask any African American.

Non Issues

The constant introduction by those in power and the media in the west of non-issues has a dehumanizing aspect on all those who reasonable oppose such issues or did not even consider them an issue to begin with. Such as gay marriage. An abhorrent thought to most of the population and one, such as abortion, which is a strictly personal choice, thrown in the face of the populace to endlessly debate and argue about. Divide and conquer in a socio-political framework.

Guantanamo

For the general population and the thinking and reasonable individual, such as you dear reader, the illegal prison at Guantanamo is like a lighthouse for dehumanization. There are hundreds of innocent men being tortured and held and we know they are being held illegally and the state has let us know their detention is illegal, yet they continue to do so. Why? this is a symbol for them. This is a triumph for them. This shows the populace and the world that they are supreme, they are above the law and you and I and anyone who they consider an enemy is not human.

Julian Assange and WikiLeaks

The case of the poor young man who is forced to live in a windowless room in an Embassy in London is perhaps one of the most dehumanizing aspects that the 1% could have thought up. The world knows he did nothing wrong, they know he is innocent, they know his rights are being violated, but he is an enemy of the 1% and his continued predicament proves that they are immune from following the law. They are more human than this poor idealistic man. He is no longer a human according to them and like the men at Guantanamo and everyone they brand as an enemy, he is no longer human.

Solutions

The people of the world are tired or being dehumanized, unless of course they are of the privileged class and enjoy all of the good things the world has to offer, but for the rest of the world, who also have the right to self-determination and a good life, they are growing tired. They are tried of the invasions, the illegal wars, the stealing of resources the destruction of countries, the economic enslavement, the illegality of those in power, the international lawlessness, the endless war on terror and beating of the drum of war. People want peace but where can they turn?

Before for those disillusioned with Capitalism there was the hope of building Socialism or a just Communist society, now there is just capitalism and endless war. The people need a new thinking, a new movement which will defend their rights to exist and to be humans. They need a movement and an idea that will lift all of them up and that idea is not the distraction of gay marriage or the endless war and demonization of other peoples. That idea is not endless war and the stealing of resources and the raping of the planet.

The world has a new Proletariat called the 99% and it must in some way unite and demand that it be treated fairly and justly and with the respect that it deserves. for the 99% are also people, with hopes and dreams and desires and wants, these human needs are not only for of those at the top.

An International Body With Teeth

The only solution, before it is too late for the world and for the peoples of the world who have been targeted for destruction and/or enslavement by illegal and lawless regimes then is the creation of n international body which has teeth and can tell certain states the international must be respected. That can stop certain states from invading others at will, executing anyone it wants extra-judicially and subverting and taking over any other country it so desires.

The international bodies that now exist are impotent in dealing with their illegality, hence new ones must be created. Ones with teeth who are unable to be influenced, subverted or bought off. But where and by whom? I may be wrong in my solution so then I ask you: what is yours?

“There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part! You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels…upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!” – Mario Savio

Ukraine: Obama, CIA, and NATO demonize Putin to hide their crimes

Ukraine: Obama, CIA, and NATO demonize Putin to hide their crimes

The actions of the US Government since the installation of George Bush as president have been criminal both domestically, where they have effectively cancelled the US Constitution and even more so internationally, where they have flipped international law on its head, made a mockery of the Geneva Conventions, turned the United Nations into just another US Government rubber stamp and committed multiple crimes against humanity. 

Since 9-11 that criminality has grown more and more egregious as it becoming clearer and clearer with each passing day that the plans of the neocons for world domination and eternal American hegemony are doomed to failure and the very country they were pretending to be rising up, is actually being destroyed.

It is understandable that the neocons who usurped the US Government were able to get away with demonizing, invading and/or killing the presidents of Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and completely destroying the Middle East because these countries were isolated, had languages very few people outside of them spoke, had media with little international reach, had governments and leaders which were not technically democracies and were “pre-invasion” either forced to disarm or where never able to properly defend themselves to begin with. Ukraine and Russia are different stories.

At first I hoped that Americans themselves would rise up and challenge their government but they were cowed and dumbed down into submission. Then I kept hoping that the UN or the ICC and the Hague would finally do something. No luck. Finally I kept whimsically wishing the countries in the world would join together and put an end to the age of American illegality and genocide. But this also has not happened. apparently all of the countries in the world are so terrorized of the American mass killing war machine that they have unleashed on the world and so subverted by low brow knuckle dragging club wielding American influence that the world has proven impotent. So literally what it comes down to is one country and one leader, the Russian Federation and President Vladimir Putin.

The fact that President Putin is the only leader who has stood up to them and perhaps the only one who can, is clear to the psychotic American neocons, of which Obama is one. These are lunatics who know nothing of wrong or right and live in their own sanitized little security bubbles seemingly unaware and completely uncaring as to the death, destruction and suffering their policies and actions have unleashed on the world and even on their own populace.

They have built up their machine, its gears grinding up the bones and bodies of their own people and spitting them out, to such an efficient level of interoperability, that there are no defining lines left between the neocons, those in the shadows playing them like marionettes in a theater of the insane in some Machiavellian comedy played out in the depths of one of Dante’s deepest infernos, the organs of power, the corporations and their media.

They have come to the point in their demonization of leaders and countries that they are delusional and at a point where it is no longer a case of the emperor having no clothes, but of the very same emperor insisting the rest of the obedient populace have no clothes and then executing them for being naked. This demonization of Russia and President Putin has taken on the quality of a cheap disgusting freak show played out to a captive audience chained to their chairs, eyes sewn open, forced to watch until blood pours from their orifices and their hearts stop.

The situation in Ukraine has shown that the western and US media are completely useless when it comes to the simple act of reporting the facts, no mention of a fair or balanced debate needed. That has long been a concept killed and buried by faux news and the original neocon usurpers.

Ukraine is the start of the big end game for the neocons, Russia has been their target from day one (and China) and Ukraine is the door they think they need to batter down to get in. Hence the totally over-the-top-lies and false reality that the US and their enslaved media have been pushing into the war weary overloaded minds of their audience.

The US Government, and their liar-in-chief Barrack Obama have been lying since day one (I would say they have made it an art if they were not so bad at it) but the lies surrounding Ukraine have been so many, so often repeated and so easy to disprove that it is difficult to keep up. Infowars dot com recently did a piece on the twisting of statements by President Putin with regard to Ukraine. I have also compiled several lists already which you can findHEREHERE, and HERE.

Quotes by President Putin

The first group are lies and misrepresentations regarding statements made by President Vladimir Putin and were compiled by John-Paul Leonard at infowars.com. Apparently the US State Department quotes President Putin and then spins their lies.

Putin: “The Rada is under the influence of extremists or terrorists.”

The Rada which was taken over in an armed coup, its elected leaders forced out at gunpoint, beaten and even killed is under the complete control of the thugs the CIA and the neocons hired to carry out their coup. Governors and the heads of all government bodies were chosen on a stage in Maidan Square in front of an audience exclusively made up of members of the junta. The government is illegitimate from top to bottom.

Lie: “The Rada is the most representative institution in Ukraine.”

Putin: “Kiev is trying to destabilize Crimea.”

There are reports of the “opposition” killing civilians trying to flee Ukraine for Crimea, burning buses filled with civilians, attempting to deliver trainloads and truckloads of weapons and even an attempted alliance with Muslim extremists who were supposed to assist in arming the Bandera nazis when they arrived in Crimea. Now there are also reports of terrorist attacks be called for by the Right Sector leader Dimitry Yarosh.

Lie: “Ukraine’s interim government has acted with restraint and sought dialogue.”

Putin: “There have been mass attacks on churches and synagogues in southern and eastern Ukraine.”

Lie: The US does not want to talk about that the same way they refuse to talk about attacks on Jews, Russians and ethnic minorities. Just like they refuse to talk about the endemic racism and the killing of their own minorities. Being as the neocons are so pro-Israel it would not be expedient for their audience to hear that the operatives in Ukraine are destroying Synagogues. Again Russia is having to defend Jews this time while they are being attacked by nazis hired by Zionist neocons elements in the US. The twisting of logic is intense.

Putin: “Russian bases are under threat.”

Lie: Russian military facilities were and remain secure.

Putin: “Ethnic Russians are under threat.”

The Right Sector and its leaders have openly called for hanging Russians, Jews, Poles and Blacks. Their first act was to outlaw the Russian language which is spoken by more than 89% of Ukrainians as language of daily usage. The Right Sector has also attempted to engage Chechen terrorists and Tatar separatists to wage a war of terror against Russians.

Lie: “Outside of Russian press and Russian state television, there are no credible reports of any ethnic Russians being under threat. The new Ukrainian government placed a priority on peace and reconciliation from the outset.”

Putin: “There is a humanitarian crisis and hundreds of thousands are fleeing Ukraine to Russia and seeking asylum. ”

The crisis has reached such a level that the Russian Government was forced to change immigration and naturalization policies to deal with the in-flow. It is a standard practice of the Right Sector to terrorize and invade homes forcing the owners to sign over deeds and titles to automobiles, humiliate and degrade people who they find disagreeable, including beating to death in public, pouring gasoline of entire busloads of passengers and setting them on fire, forcing people to sing the hymn of Ukraine and breaking limbs and killing people who cannot. Junta thugs regularly invade homes, hotels and stop people in the streets and destroy documents, falsely arrest and imprison and openly steal property. The campaign of terror on the populace is something right out of a nazis SS or SA handbook.

The nazi junta has now forbidden Russian and foreign journalists from entering Ukraine, has clamped down on the media and forbidden broadcasts in Russian and has made communications almost impossible.

Lie: “To date, there is absolutely no evidence of a humanitarian crisis.”

Putin: “Ukraine’s government is illegitimate. Yanukovych is still the legitimate leader of Ukraine.”

Under international law and the laws existing under the constitution of Ukraine, President Victor Yanukovich is still the President of Ukraine. He was not legally impeached or removed from office, his term did not expire and he did not pass away. Those are the legal means by which a president in Ukraine leaves office. Given the $5 billion dollars Victoria Nuland admitted the US has paid to overthrow the government there is no way that they can admit that it was an armed coup and that they are supporting and illegal nazi junta of puppets which is the reality.

Lie: “On March 4, President Putin himself acknowledged the reality that Yanukovych “has no political future.”

Putin: “The opposition failed to implement the February 21 agreement with former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.”

President Yanukovich had 48 hours to sign the agreement. The junta raided his offices and his home and stormed the parliament within 24 of the terms being outlined. These actions by the nazi junta were in direct violation of the terms of the agreement which called for an immediate cease to all violence. Amid calls for his death and massive violence he was forced to go into hiding. Had he attempted appeared he would have been lynched. The junta continued storming the houses of government and with their campaign of terror unrestrained.

Lie: “Under the terms of the agreement, Yanukovych was to sign the enacting legislation within 24 hours and bring the crisis to a peaceful conclusion. Yanukovych refused to keep his end of the bargain.

Putin: “Russia’s actions fall within the scope of the 1997 Friendship Treaty between Ukraine and the Russian Federation.”

Like the agreement allowing for the Black Sea Fleet and the stationing of up to 25,000 Russian troops in Crimea this agreement was obviously never read by Washington or the State Department or interpreted by the same criminals who interpreted that the Geneva Conventions to mean that torture, indefinite detention and aggressive war are all legal. All of Russia’s actions in Ukraine have been done in compliance with all international and intra-national agreements treaties and laws.

The State Department also ignores that the Russian troops that are in Crimea have been there for decades, there is no invasion and has never been one. There has though been a request by the legitimate authorities in Crimea and by the legally recognized President of Ukraine for Russian intervention to secure peace and guarantee the safety and the security of the civilian population.

Lie: “The 1997 agreement requires Russia to respect Ukraine’s territorial integrity. Russia’s military actions in Ukraine, which have given them operational control of Crimea, are in clear violation of Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty.”

Putin: “Russian forces in Crimea are only acting to protect Russian military assets. It is “citizens’ defense groups,” not Russian forces, who have seized infrastructure and military facilities in Crimea.”

Lie: “Strong evidence suggests that members of Russian security services are at the heart of the highly organized anti-Ukraine forces in Crimea.”

This bald-faced blatant lie is probably one of the most egregious on so many levels. First it raises the bogey man of the KGB. Next it completely turns the situation on its head by comparing the paramilitary neo nazi Blackwater supported junta forces of the Right Sector who have been training for 10 years with full CIA and US support with fearful civilians and ex Berkut members, police and soldiers who had to flee when the country they were loyal to was overtaken.

Thanks to infowars for that. Although they have published some pretty demonizing stuff about Russia and fantasy KGB plots before, at least they are on the side of truth on Ukraine.

Finally the monster lies.

The snipers on Maidan were hired by the junta and the Trident.

The EU Agreement Obama is trying fast track through his temporary puppet junta gives the entire Russian gas pipeline to Exxon Oil.

The entire coup was a CIA engineered regime change.

Finally, it is all part of a neocon plan for NATO expansion into Russian space.

Will keep you updated.

Crimea and Russia Charging Yarosh and Co War Criminal Obama Calls Them Legitimate

15 March, 21:20   http://www.jar2.com/Crimea/Crimea.html

The Crimean Prosecutors have initiated criminal cases against the militarized radical nationalist groups that carried out the violent coup d'état in Ukraine. The leaders of the Right Sector and the Brotherhood will have to answer charges related to their calls for military aggression, inciting violence and aggression and organizing and intent to organize terrorist acts in Crimea. This comes in official statements from Crimean officials and the press service of the Crimean prosecutor's office.

The ringleaders of the Bandera nazis and the ultra-right nationalists spread propaganda calling for violence in Crimea and published calls for terrorist acts to be carried out in Crimea on several social networking sites including Facebook. Wanted for inciting military aggression and war, incitement of terrorism and calls for the destruction and killing of Crimeans and their property are nazi Right Sector leader Dimitry Yarosh, who also called for open warfare against Russia and the fascist extremist Dimitry Korchinsky, the leader of the Brotherhood.

Read also: Crimean prosecutors to probe into 'Right Sector' Chief's activities – media

The Crimean Prime Minister Sergei Aksenov stated that the Right Sector is preparing provocations in Crimea under the guise of Russian troops. Evidence of this is contained in e-mails and other information published on the internet by the hacktivist group Anonymous Ukraine and information received by the Security Services of Ukraine.

According to e-mails published by Anonymous Ukraine and available on the Voice of Russia, orders were given by US Army Lieutenant Colonel Jason P. Gresh, the Assistant Army Attaché at the US Embassy in Kiev to Colonel Igor Protsyk the head of the Bilateral Military Cooperation Division of the Main Directorate for Military Cooperation and PKO of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, to carry out pre-arranged plans to stage military attacks and make them look as if they were carried out by the Special Forces of the Russian Federation. Gresh called for Protsyk to use his network to stage attacks on the orders of "friends in Washington".

Prosecutors have not mentioned if any actions are going to be taken against Gresh, however such actions are highly illegal under international laws and diplomatic conventions and at a minimum he should be declared persona non grata.

After receiving instructions from Gresh, Protsyk then wrote to Vasily Labaychuk who began carrying out instructions to his underlings, including the launching of a false flag attack on the Melitopole Air Base and on the Ukrainian 25th Air Transport Brigade, which was to be blamed on Russian Special Forces and to be carried about before the 15th of March. Lebaychuk and Protsyk may be facing more serious charges however prosecutors are not commenting on whether they will hand down indictments against the two.

The Russian Federal Investigative Committee, the top Russian body charged with investigating the most serious crimes and initiating criminal proceedings, is to charge, in absentia, the leader of the Svoboda (Freedom) Party (the main Bandera nazi group) and it faction which seized power in the Verhovnaya Rada (parliament) Oleg Tyagnibok, the Right Sector's Dimitry Yarosh and several other members of the UNA-UNSO (the largest nazi ultra-nationalist group) for participating in armed groups siding with the terrorist leaders in the North Caucasus Shamil Basayev and Khattab.

Itar –Tass quotes the head of the Investigation Department of the Russian Federation in the North Caucasus Federal District Vladimir Markin as saying that criminal charges have been filed and proceedings initiated against several members of UNA-UNSO Igor Mazur, Valeria Bobrovich, Dimitry Korchinsky, Andrey and Oleg Tyagnibok, Dimitry Yarosh, Vladimir Mamaligy and other individuals of consequence. Yarosh was indicted previously on March 5th on charges of public incitement to terrorist and extremist activities conducted through the media.

On March 12th Moscow's Basmany Court sanctioned the arrest of ultranationalist Yarosh and placed him on an international wanted list. This was after his calls for terrorist and extremist actions in Russia.

Despite all of this the Right Sector, Yarosh, Tyaganbok and all of their associates continue to act with impunity and carry out the instructions of their western masters who publically support them and have repeatedly called them legitimate. It is important to note that no government in Europe or anywhere else for that matter has openly invited figures such as Yatsenyuk to meet with their leaders, unlike Barrack Obama who recently staged a media opportunity to show his support for the nazis in Ukraine and in particular Yatsenyuk, whom Obama calls a "legitimate" leader and with whom he made several bellicose statements against Russia and attempted to demonize Russia to the western press.

Yarosh and Tyganbok however know they have the full support of the US and have made no secret of their ambitions to run for president. There is no doubt they are emboldened by their CIA supporters and the fact that the entire Verhovnaya Rada and the current junta government was chosen on a stage in front of their own mob of vicious thugs on Maidan Square. Surely they are confident their robbing of the office of president will be just as easy. After all as Victoria Nuland admitted, the US has spent $5 billion on overthrowing Ukraine and they continue to call the violent nazi junta legitimate. So I guess anything goes.

For the likes of Dimitry Yarosh and Alexander Muzichko it might be better however for them if they are arrested or give themselves up because there are many who would rather see them liquidated, which in fact is what they deserve. The vice head of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Valery Rashkin called on the Russian authorities to liquidate the pair.

The head of Ingushetia called Yarosh's pleas to liquidated terrorist Doku Umarov to launch terrorist attacks against Russia a declaration of war.

Ramzan Kadyrov, the head of Chechnya, recently repeated that Doku Umarov has long completed his earthly journey and in short offered Yarosh a ticket to join Umarov.

Mr. Kadyrov said: We clearly see who America and Europe believe to be opposition and political forces. Yarosh publicly calls for terror, but he is being helped by country that supposedly is against terrorism. The US recognized Umarov as being one of the main terrorists of our time, but for them Yarosh is a nice guy. Dimitry Yarosh's words that he fought in Chechnya will not be left without due attention . Doku Umarov, with our help, went to a place where no one has yet returned. We will provide Yarosh with a ticket to there as well.

Given the record unbelievably Obama and all of his anti-terrorist-pro-Israel supposed proponents continue to openly support these animals and in fact are instructing them to carry out more attacks. Yes dear reader emperor Obama has no clothes on this one, he and his government are supporting real certified modern day nazi terrorists. If you are still doubtful find the statement by the self-appointed representative of Ukraine at the United Nations during which he denied the legitimacy of the Nuremburg trials.

I thought the Jewish population in the US was pretty powerful so why are they allowing their president and their taxpayer dollars to support nazis? Unbelievable! You just can

Congratulation to Crimea, Condolences to Americans on Mass Murderer Obama

17 March, 15:29   http://www.jar2.com/Crimea/Crimea.html

Congratulation to Crimea, condolences to Americans on Obama

With the highest voter turnout in Crimean history (83.1%) the referendum on the reunification of Crimea with the Russian Federation (which as of writing with 100% of the votes counted has seen 96.77% voters saying yes to the accession) is a watershed moment of historic proportions for the peoples of Crimea, Russia, and the world on many levels. 

For the brave people of Crimea it has shown that they will not be swayed, manipulated, pressured or terrorized by the West and its agents and all of their nefarious methods, violence and bellicose rhetoric. Internationally and from a geopolitical viewpoint the referendum is another heralding moment to the return of a healthy state of multi-polarity in the world and for the people who inhabit it and an end to the unipolar dictatorship of the lawless American hegemon, a failing state whose double standards, theft of wealth and resources and endless illegal wars has wreaked havoc on the peaceful citizens of the world for much too long.

As an employee, commentator and writer for the Voice of Russia I would personally, albeit humbly, like to congratulate the Crimean people for exercising their democratic right to vote and for bravely making their voices heard despite the relentless machinations amassed against them by the West which has attempted to make Ukraine and Crimea just another outpost of their godless empire.

I am sure that my feelings at this moment are echoed by my colleagues at the Voice of Russia who have been directly involved on the front lines of an information war launched on the world by a subservient western corporate mass media ready to lock step with Obama and egregiously unquestioningly substitute truth for self-serving lies and war propaganda.

We must also give thanks to President Putin who, when given the full constitutional power and the right to use force in accordance with all national and international laws and conventions, refrained and continued his policies of respect for sovereignty, diplomatic resolution of conflicts, non-interference and above all the rule of law, something that Washington has long forgotten.

The efforts of everyone in the Russian Government must also be lauded, from Foreign Minister Lavrov’s untiring work to every member of the Russian Government, including those in the Federation Council, the State Duma and all of the heads of all of the Russian State organs and bodies of power for these are all people humbly and selflessly defending their homeland.

The Honorary Blacklist

As Ramzan Kadirov the head of the Chechen Republic said to ITAR-TASS, “I would be offended if I do not top a blacklist drawn up by the European Union,” referring to a blacklist compiled in connection with Russia’s position on Ukraine according to ITAR-TASS. Mr. Kadyrov said he would be glad to be included on a list which includes people “… who protect the interests of their country. I am glad to be on that list because I speak out against those who violate the rights of millions of people, including Muslims.” and “We have a strong state. They will not achieve what they did in other countries… We are guarding our homeland.” Wonderfully put, I would be honored to be on that list as well quite frankly.

The people of Crimea were an oppressed people, first by Ukraine, now by the Western colonizers and their Banderavites and those actively attempting to annex Ukraine to rape it for its resources and place their NATO war elements on its territory. Russia has once again helped an oppressed people achieve self-determination, maintain peace, uphold international law and do so without a single shot being fired or a single person’s life being lost. Responsibility for allviolence and death in Ukraine lies in the bloody hands of Washington and their agents in Ukraine.

Formal Request by Crimea

On the Morning of March 17, the Supreme Council of Crimea will meet to draw up a formal request for membership of the republic in the Russian Federation. "We need to start the political process of reunification with Russia, which will require decisions by the Russian State Duma and the Federation Council and the Russian President," said the First Deputy Prime Minister of Crimea Rustam Temirgaliev.

According to Crimean Prime Minister Sergei Aksenov during the afternoon of March 17th, a delegation from the Crimean Parliament will fly to Russia to officially start the process.

Some Russian Reactions

According to Itar-Tass the Speaker of the State Duma, Sergei Naryshkin said: “The referendum in Crimea is a historic event for Russia. The State Duma is ready to quickly adopt all the laws necessary for Crimea’s entry into the Russian Federation.” He also stated colleagues from the State Duma who were in Crimea to observe the referendum said that many people cast their ballots with tears in their eyes and that since in the 23 years since Ukraine was declared a sovereign state, this was the day they had long been waiting for. And why not? Why shouldn’t Russians be happy to be part of Russia as opposed to a repressed minority under Banderovites and Ukrainian nationalists.

The leader of the parliamentary faction of the “A Just Russia” party, Sergey Mironov

The leader of the parliamentary faction " Fair Russia" Sergei Mironov said that the State Duma will quickly enact all laws necessary for the accession of Crimea into the body of the Russian Federation. He added: “Let our Crimean brothers have no doubts."

The leader of the Liberal Democratic Party Vladimir Zhirinovsky announced that the State Duma it may take as little as 3 days to as much as 3 month to enact all legislation to formally enter Crimea into the Russia Federation. According to Itar-Tass he also proposed declaring March 16th a new national holiday. "And let all the people be happy and smiling."

President Putin

The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin has had to deal with countless phone calls from US President Barrack Obama. President Putin and the Kremlin have been quiet as to the contents of those calls by Obama, but we can be sure that Obama has been pressuring President Putin to allow his CIA organized coup of Ukraine stand. Once again Obama appears to be weak, fumbling, arrogant and domineering although he does not have a foot to stand on, and in fact is guilty of violating international in his organizing and backing of a coup in Ukraine.

In his last conversation President Putin once again graciously discussed issues regarding Ukraine with Obama (imagine if President Putin organized a coup in Canada and then called Obama to tell him to not do anything) and drew attention to the inability and unwillingness of the current Kiev authorities to curb rampant ultra-nationalist and radical groups who are destabilizing the country and terrorizing civilians, including the Russian-speaking population and our compatriots.

In this context considerations are being taken to sending an OSCE monitoring mission to Ukraine. According to the President of Russia the activity of such a mission should be extended to all Ukrainian regions .

With regard to the referendum in Crimea President Putin stressed that it was held in a manner fully consistent with international law and the UN Charter and took into account, in particular, the famous Kosovo precedent . At the same time the inhabitants of the peninsula were guaranteed the possibility of free will and self-determination. President Putin sated the same to UN head Ban Ki-Moon on the eve of the referendum.

As far as repeated threats by the West and its agents designed to pressure Russia and interfere with sovereign issues, in particular to exclude Russia from the G-8, President Putin told Obama that despite differences in weighing the situation they should work together to seek ways to help stabilize the situation in Ukraine.

Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov response to a question as to whether President Putin had taken into account and whether he expressed any “note of regret” that the G8 might end up without Russia by saying that this had not slipped the President mind and he had no regrets. In addition, he said that Russia will not make any changes in its foreign policy amid speculation about possible sanctions.

"Let's wait for concrete decisions. Because right now we are discussing media reports and talking about the media reports and generalized statements. When there are specific steps taken, then we will have to assess the possible consequences, not only for us but also for our partners," said Peskov.

Mr. Peskov also said that there had been no change of plans regarding President Putin's foreign visits or to scheduled meeting of distinguished guests in the Kremlin.

Foreign Minister Lavrov

The Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov also discussed the referendum in the Crimea with US Secretary of State John Kerry, also initiated by the US side during which he reiterated that the referendum in Crimea: “… fully complies with international law and the UN Charter, and the results should be the starting point in determining the future of the peninsula."

Foreign Minister Lavrov also urged those currently acting as the proper authorities in Kiev to curb the activities of the ultranationalist and radical groups that are running rampant throughout Ukraine and terrorizing the Russian-speaking population. The sides agreed to continue to maintain working contacts on Ukrainian issues.

Dmitry Kiselyov

Well known Russian TV presenter Dmitry Kiselyov and the head of the new Russian news agency Rossiya Segodnya, on Sunday during his weekly Vesti Nedeli “News of the Week” program did not mince words when discussing the outcome of the referendum in Crimea and stated that the Russian Federation is the only country that can turn the US into "radioactive ash"and that Americans, knowing this, recognize President Vladimir Putin as strong leader.

Mr. Kiselyov revealed some of the capabilities of Russia’s nuclear defense forces and its nuclear deterrent outlining how Russia’s strategic nuclear missiles would be launched at the United States, even if after a first srike nuclear attack kills all members of the military. He said the Russian weapons management systems are invulnerable as strategic nuclear weapons .

The Indian Nations: a Victory for the Oppressed an end to Colonization

Support for the people of Crimea and for the referendum has come from far and wide and from unexpected sources. There has been wide support from countries such as Serbia and from oppressed peoples worldwide including Indigenous Indian Groups and Nations. An elder of the Mohawk Nation, Kahentinetha Horn had the following to say about the referendum:“Crimea exercising its right under international law to secede from the Ukraine is good news for colonized peoples everywhere. We can do the same as Scotland, Venice, etc. Quebecois have voted and lost twice to secede from the Corporation of Canada. they have no legal assets such as our un-surrendered land and resources. They can separate from Canada by dissolving their branch corporation.”

“Colonialism is illegal. Future affiliations between freed people and legitimate nations such as Russia must be on an equal basis, no matter the size of the nation, such as Luxembourg, Monaco, etc. In 1923 Chief Deskahe was sent by the Iroquois Confederacy to the Hague to exercise our right to apply for membership in the League of Nations. Canada, US and Britain pressured to have all Indigenous illegally declared as "an internal matter" of the colonists who invaded us.”

“President Vladimir Putin protected the right of Crimeans to decide one way or the other. Crimeans, with help from Russia and Ukraine, finally killed colonialism. They can take credit for being in the forefront of the greatest movement for freedom and equality for Indigenous people worldwide.”

Obama Lies and Lies and Lies

As expected US officials continue to state that they refuse to recognize the referendum in Crimea as legitimate. Surprisingly, knowing that the coup in Ukraine was organized by the US/CIA/NATO in order to (among other reasons) transfer ownership of the gas pipeline from Russia into Europe to Exxon Oil and station NATO missiles on Ukrainian territory, they say they support the “independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.” The hypocrisy of their bald-faced lies is historic in its depth and transparency.

According to Daniel McAdams at infowars dot com at least 56% of the American population are against any US intervention or meddling in Ukraine. But just as a majority of the population in Crimea and Ukraine mean nothing to Obama, he continues to desperately bumble around smashing everything in his path and push his illegal takeover of Ukraine and the support of his unelected US installed puppet leaders. This is understandable as I have said many times before because as Victoria Nuland stated in December, the US has spent $5 billion in overthrowing Ukraine.

Thanks to thousands of leaks, including those by Anonymous Ukraine, Western meddling in Ukraine has been revealed on multiple levels, including the hiring of snipers to kill police AND demonstrators on Maidan Nezalezhnosti Square, the determining of the makeup of the government before the coup (conversation between Victoria Nuland and Geoffrey Pyatt), thepresence of Blackwater mercenaries, request by Yarosh for weapons support from a Crimean Muslim extremist underground and even a false flag military attack on an air base in Ukraine, yet the subservient western corporate media refuses to publish or allow debate on these issues and continues to blindly, obtusely and egregiously publish lies as truth. Just like the supposed Russian invasion which never existed they continue to demonize Russia and President Putin to no end.

Obama Protects His Crimes, Will Seize Your Property

Obama the dictator has declared a national security emergency when it comes to Ukraine which will allow him to seize the property of anyone who questions his position on Ukraine. We know that in the US “national security” only means protecting criminals in power and keeping Obama and his cabal out of prison where they belong. According to above top secret dot com he has also declared war on China.

Infowars writes: “Be careful what you say. Be careful what you write. President Obama has just given himself the authority to seize your assets.

According to the president’s recent Executive Order, “Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Ukraine” (first reported by WND’s Aaron Klein), the provisions for seizure of property extend to “any United States person.” That means “any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States.”

Declaring a “national emergency” over the planned referendum in Crimea to determine whether or not to join Russia, the US president asserts that asset seizure is possible for any US person “determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State”:

(i) to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have engaged in, directly or indirectly, any of the following:

(A) actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine;

(B) actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine; or

(C) misappropriation of state assets of Ukraine or of an economically significant entity in Ukraine;

The Executive Order is, as usual, so broadly written that it leaves nearly everything open to interpretation.”

Larouchpub dot com goes even further with regard to the executive order calling Obama’s move a “Dictatorship for War”“… the President has moved one giant step closer to declaring an outright dictatorship over the United States. Obama has put himself in a state of "pre-impeachment," declared Lyndon LaRouche on March 6.His actions also moved the world precariously closer to a military confrontation between the United States and Russia that couldlead to thermonuclear World War III. The biggest obstacle to war prevention, LaRouche further warned in discussion with colleagues on March 8, is the cowardice and Wall Street-induced corruption of the U.S. Congress, which is the main obstacle to Obama's immediate removal from office via impeachment or by invoking the 25th Amendment. By invoking a National Emergency via Executive Order Obama violated the law by failing to present any findings of fact backing his declaration of emergency.”

“According to senior U.S. intelligence sources, the Joint Chiefs of Staff had delivered their own recommendations and findings to the President and the National Security Council earlier last week, concluding that the U.S. did not have any direct strategic interests in the Crimean region of Ukraine, but that the Russians certainly did. The Chiefs noted that the United States had treaty obligations to NATO allies, but that Ukraine is not a NATO member. Russia has vital strategic interests in the Crimea, centered on its Black Sea Fleet base at Sevastopol, which is leased to Russia for the next 30 years, under a 1990s treaty with Ukraine. Sevastopol and the Black Sea are Russia's only access to the Mediterranean.”

“JCS Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey reiterated the Pentagon's view in a lengthy interview March 7 with PBS NewsHour. Dempsey emphasized that the Ukraine dispute must be resolved diplomatically, candidly warning, in response to a question from Judy Woodruff, that the crisis could lead to war. Sources have emphasized that, for the Pentagon, cooperation with Russia is vital to the planned U.S. and NATO withdrawal from Afghanistan this year. Forty percent of the troop and equipment withdrawal is conducted along the "northern route" through Central Asia and Russia. There are other vital areas of cooperation, including the ongoing P5+1 negotiations with Iran, the war on drugs and terrorism, and the Syrian and North Korean situations, which require Russian-American cooperation.”

Finally

According to Obama’s own executive order he must seize all of his own assets and those of Victoria Nuland, her boss John Kerry, CIA Director John Brennan, NATO head Anders Rasmussen, the heads of Blackwater, Vitaly Klitschko, Dmitry Yarosh, Arseny Yatsenyuk, Oleh Tyahnybok, the heads of USAID, the Endowment for Democracy, all NGOs previously operating in Ukraine, the heads of Exxon Oil and German companies that were to obtain mines and other Ukrainian property and all members and owners of media that continue to make their illegal activities possible. Why? Read the wording of Obama's directive: according to Obama anyone determined to: “be responsible for or complicit in, or to have engaged in, directly or indirectly, any of the following: (A) actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine; (B) actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine; or (C) misappropriation of state assets of Ukraine or of an economically significant entity in Ukraine.” This describes perfectly what Obama and company were doing.

If organizing an armed coup and then the following division of the assets of the country do not fall into these categories as well then I do not know what would. But then again the West has gone completely off the reservation judging by their irrational behavior and their hypocrisy in Ukraine and has lost all sight of reason and elementary determination between wrong and right. One thing can be said, Obama and his cabal have taken transparency in government to a new level, because it is crystal clear, they have completely lost it.

The real national security emergency in the US is the fact that their leader is ready to start WWIII and has destroyed the credibility and the reputation of the US on almost every level. But then again Obama obviously has other things on his mind, more important than the American people and the matter at hand. Maybe that is why he was laughing it up at Nelson Mandela’s funeral and why he is supporting nazis in Ukraine? No Martin Luther King this one. Perhaps we should politely ask him to place his Nobel Peace Prize at the grave of 21 year old Maxim Tretiak, one of the many unarmed police and Berkut members who were killed by his snipers, or at the grave of any of the thousands of children he killed with his weekly drone strikes? Never mind. Just as he laughed at Nelson Mandela and the Nobel Committee, I am sure he would laugh at us for asking such a thing.

Crimea Reunifies With Russia After US/CIA/nazi/EU Coup in Ukraine: Honorary Sanctions

18 March, 23:34   http://www.jar2.com/Crimea/Crimea.html

Crimea re-joins Russia after US/nazi coup in Ukraine: honorary sanctions

In a historic moment the people of Crimea have been waiting over 20 years for the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin signed a treaty with the Republic of Crimea officially allowing for the accession of Crimea and Sevastopol into the Russian Federation. 

As of the moment of signing the Republic of Crimea and the federal city of Sevastopol are now a part of the Russian Federation. The agreement is in full force but must go through the formal process of ratification. The agreement stipulates that Russian, the language of the majority of Crimeans and one that was outlawed by the junta in Kiev, Ukrainian and Crimean Tartar will be the official languages. It is a moment of joy for the now free people of Crimea and for all Russians alike.

The Russian Federation, forced to protect the rights of Russians and ethnic minorities in Crimea from the marauding neo-nazi junta which seized power in Kiev and was actively calling for terrorist attacks and the liquidation of all Russians and minorities, did so brilliantly without a single shot being fired, being welcomed with flowers and tears. Russia then helped the Crimean people finally make their voices heard in a historic referendum which saw the people almost unanimously vote to rejoin their country with the Russian Federation. The people have spoken and the agreement has been signed, the Republic of Crimea is now part of Russia.

In some of his harshest comments to date about the hypocrisy of the West the President of Russia Vladimir Putin moved away from the phrase double standards saying the West has shown primitive cynicism. During his speech to the Russian Government President Putin quoted the Kosovo decision and spoke of threats by the West to destabilize and make worse the lives of the people of Russia.

Honorary Sanctions by Knuckle Dragging West

Despite the fact that the accession and reunification of Crimea with the Russian Federation took place strictly in line with all international and national laws and standards including the UN Charter the US and its subservient European Union surrogates and other “allies” have launched sanctions against scores of Russian and Crimean citizens and officials and have even gone so far as suspending Russia’s participation in the G-8.

Russian lawmakers and the Kremlin have been extremely vocal as to the ridiculousness of US designed sanctions with all Russian MPs passing a statement saying they volunteered to be subject to the US/EU sanctions and the Kremlin saying they view them with irony and sarcasm.

Many Russian lawmakers, officials and others see the sanctions list as a point of honor and even as an “Oscar” from Washington, in recognition that they have defended Mother Russia. They echoed earlier words by Ramzan Kadyrov, the head of the Chechen Republic, who said he would be honored to be on that list with people who proudly defend their homeland and he added that he would be offended if he did not top it. Personally I would love to be on that list as well, perhaps someone in Washington will take me up on it?

Reasons to sanction the US

The bald-faced lies and myopic self-righteousness with which the US is demonizing Russia and President Putin are so egregious and blatant that they are historic in proportion. Washington has clearly gone insane with threats of destabilizing the internal situation in the country and gems such as Russia is a gas station masquerading as a country. I beg to differ, and respond to McCain’s characterization by saying the US/NATO is a genocidal death machine run by megalomaniacs and mass murdering war criminals founded on genocide built by slaves and needs to disbanded and unarmed before it kills anymore innocent people or invades another country.

Way back when I drew up a list of reasons why the US should be itself sanctioned by the world community. I mean the real world community, not the US/NATO/EU/Colonies “world community”. It looks like the time has come to publish it.

The following is a list of reasons that the United States of America should be facing international sanctions. These sanctions must be carried over to include client states, allies, NATO and all bodies, states and organizations that have aided and abetted the US in its plans and nefarious meddling in all of the countries of the world.

9-11

For the carrying out of the murder of 2,999 innocent civilians and the related terror and destruction of property in a joint US/Israeli/Saudi black operation to serve as the catalyst for world military domination as planned by Dick Cheney and the Project for a New American Century and the subsequent cover up and failure to properly investigate and provide all citizens of the world with a true and plausible explanation as to the controlled demolitions, the absence of planes etc..

Security State/Constitution

The implementation of an illegal authoritarian security state in the US which stripped people of their freedoms, liberties and human rights and the destruction of the country’s Constitution all done in a subversive nature and against the will of the American people.

Fixed Elections

Failing to implement an election system that reflects the voice of the people, failing to allow international elections observers and the usage of electronic voting machines with pre-set results.

Freedom of the Press

Threatening, silencing, controlling and censoring the press and all media thus stripping away the right of the people of the United States to be informed and be able to make educated and solid decisions that directly affect their lives and well being and allow them more importantly to hold their leaders and their government to account in a normal legal and democratic fashion.

Whistleblowers

The persecution and imprisonment of whistleblowers and anyone who exposes, attempts to expose, document or speaks out against US Government illegality.

Julian Assange/Wikileaks

The demonization and extra-judicial extraordinary persecution of Julian Assange and the WikiLeaks organization and all of their sources, affiliates and even visitors.

Internet/Hactivists/Anonymous

For the death of Aaron Shultz and the imprisonment of hacktivists such as Jeremy Hammond and the war the US has fought against groups such as Anonymous. Their persecution and the egregiously long prison sentences they have received violates their rights to justice, freedom from tyranny and other human rights. Their attempt to control the Internet and to use it as a global surveillance/manipulation tool violate all humans’ right to be free from unnecessary surveillance, subliminal influence and basic human privacy.

Racism

Despite rhetoric and having a black president the United States in run by a rich white minority which does not represent the makeup of the country. The institutionalized endemic racism, promoted, supported and advanced by the state through financial, educational, medical, political, police and other means makes the US non-white population the most oppressed on the planet. The programming to accept this status-quo in the educational system and the inability of the minorities to find justice or even secure their basic human rights is not something that must be allowed to stand in the modern world.

Indigenous People

The continued plight and genocide against the true owners of the land being occupied by those who call themselves Americans and the refusal of the government to make any move to allow for a redress of grievances, restitution or any of the basic human rights which must be granted to all people. The continued teaching of a false history to the populace amounts to brainwashing and thus makes the populace a party to a monstrous cover up.

Prisons

The inordinately high prison population in the United States, the practice of torture, solitary confinement and execution. The unjust legal system, the ridiculously long sentences for minor crimes and the inordinate number of non-whites in the privatized prison system are also reasons to call for sanctions.

Human Rights

The US continues to violate human rights on all levels, including the rights of women, children and the right to be free from having to accept lifestyles that do not coincide with accepted norms.

Aggressive Wars

For launching aggressive wars against Yugoslavia, Serbia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and the attempt on Syria. Aggressive war is the most serious of crimes against humanity and is classified as a Crime Against Peace. These wars were launched with no threat present, no declaration of war and all based on false evidence.

Torture

Ignoring international law and the Geneva Conventions and implementing a state sponsored program of torture.

Guantanamo

Maintaining an illegal extra-territorial indefinite detention and torture facility on the territory of another sovereign nation and all of the crimes committed there including the ongoing detention of hundreds of innocent men without trial or redress.

Drones

The practice of extra-judicial execution robbing those killed of a right to trial or to face their accusers as well as the extra-territorial nature of the drones strikes and the huge numbers of innocent people slaughtered.

Resources/Pollution

Using over 40% of the world’s total resources while making up less than 8% of the world’s population as well as the destruction of lands, forests, seas and the atmosphere while using the practice of exporting dirty industries and stealing the resources of the rest of the world.

Colonies

Continuing to maintain colonial control of Puerto Rico while committing genocide on the native people and not allowing the people to the right of self-determination.

NSA Spying

Spying on all citizens of the world and all governments and officials and using the data for blackmail, manipulation and the advancement of empire.

Sponsoring Terrorism

Creating Al-Qaeda and working in collusion with terrorists in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Northern Ireland and other locations. Promoting terrorism as a false threat to justify mass surveillance and the stripping away of human rights and freedoms.

NATO

The creation and expansion of a global aggressive military force designed to commit aggressive attacks and force countries into subservient compliance.

Ukraine

Funding, training, arming and supporting neo-nazi elements and then using them to carry out the illegal overthrow of a democratically elected government. Using USAID and other organizations to subvert and manipulate the population of sovereign country. Spending $5 billion of taxpayer money without the knowledge or permission of the people to subvert Ukraine. Attempt to and then organizing a puppet government that does not represent the people. Killing police and protestors. Causing unrest, terrorizing the population and stripping groups of their human right to their language or their very lives. Covering up or ignoring evidence of murder and high crimes. Ordering the overthrow of said government. Placing paid mercenaries on the sovereign territory of a country. Planning false flags attacks. Supporting nazi elements and ignoring Nuremberg Trial denial. Attempting to organize through surrogates terrorist attack against civilians in Crimea, etc., etc.

Obama

Having a president who orders weekly extra-judicial executions by drone, laughed at the funeral of Nelson Mandela and continues to make a mockery of peace and international law by holding a Nobel Peace Prize.

War Crimes

The refusal to bring know war criminals such as George Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and others before the ICC and the enactment of legislation known as the “Hague Invasion Act” which allows the US to invade the Hague if any US war criminal is brought before it.

Financial Manipulation

The use of financial markets, instruments and institutions to enslave countries, manipulate states and governments and fund illegal activities such as terrorist acts, support for the narcotics trade, illegal weapons deliveries, illegal resource attainment, etc., etc..

Plus

The following is a list of countries where the US has organized coup d’états, supported revolutions, overthrown governments, invaded, annexed, supported groups or forces who overthrew or attempted to overthrow governments or outright executed the leaders.

Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Bosnia, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, China, Colombia, Colorado, Congo, Cuba, Detroit, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Germany, Greece, Grenada, Guam, Guatemala, Haiti, Hawaii, Honduras, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Korea, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Macedonia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, Samoa, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, South Dakota, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, Uruguay, USSR, Venezuela, Vietnam, Virgin Islands, Yemen, Yugoslavia and Zaire (Congo).

What they have done and are doing to Native Americans might also be added to the list and as the genocide of the indigenous peoples is the foundation of endemic “American” racism and “exceptionalism” must also be mentioned.

Conclusion

Internationally there are more reasons why the world community should initiate sanctions against the United States. So as you see the hypocrisy of the US with regard to Russia assisting Russians to live free and in peace, while denying the legitimacy of an illegal junta nazi “government” is not only historic in proportion, it has crossed into the realm of insanity. I honestly believe, in desperation to prevent their own impending collapse, they have gone insane. And please, add me to the list.

Neocon CFR/CIA Plant McFaul Op-Ed Shows Ignorance and Rabid Russophobia - By JAR2

25 March, 17:37  http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Michael_McFaul.html

McFaul op-ed shows ignorance and rabid Russophobia

Immediately after his arrival in Moscow and before even unpacking his bags, the former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, met with members of the George Soros/USAID funded "opposition" and gave his agents their marching orders. Of course sugar coating the relationship between the US and the Russian opposition with words like "democracy" and "human rights" played well to the audience in the US and the West, however it did not go over as well as McFaul had hoped for here in Russia. Despite not being a diplomat neocon Michael McFaul was chosen as the US Ambassador to Russia because he was a specialist on color revolutions and was sent to organize just such a revolution here in Moscow, unfortunately Russians were to wise to fall for it, and immediately upon leaving he made his true colors known.

Color revolution architect as ambassador

Perhaps it is thanks to the fact that McFaul was not a diplomat and lacked real formal training for the job of ambassador that all of his actions in attempting to organize a color revolution in Russia were so easy to spot and so easy to expose and stop. It can also be said that like the color revolution and coup organizers in Ukraine and the geo-political architects in Washington, McFaul knew nothing about the people of Russia or what makes them tick. This is a repeated error in US regime change planning but like most errors made by the US they are repeated again and again.

Even while Obama hailed him as a Russia "expert" and he was okay by Zbignew Brezhinsky it was clear from day one that McFaul was clearly way out of his element in Moscow and while he thought his "oh gee see what a nice normal smiling guy I am" meme was an effective masquerade, his little act did little to convince anyone that he had come to Moscow to improve Russia-US relations, his actions made it clear he had come to very actively meddle. From the outset he stated he had come to educate Russians on America. Unfortunately Russians are very well aware who and what America is.

From payouts to the opposition, involvement in Bolotnaya, stories of a $460 million reward for bringing about an armed insurrection, spy scandals and attempts to manipulate and sway civil society, McFaul’s time in Moscow was marked by continuous attempts to subvert or manipulate the Russian Government and the Russian people, and endless attempts to pull the wool over the eyes of Russia’s media and its citizens.

Perhaps his only diplomatic success was convincing certain officials that the US Brezhinsky formed foreign policy establishment did in fact wish to carry out some sort of "reset" in relations. This "reset" was a ruse to convince Russia to allow for NATO to place more military elements along Russian borders, to gain Russian assistance on the illegal US war in Afghanistan and distract Russia from continued attempts to weaken and divide the country and undermine its leaders.

Like the opposition he paid and instructed he had one main job: to get rid of President Vladimir Putin and to do everything to weaken Russia and prevent it from challenging the US. Removing President Putin from power was the only goal of the Bolotnaya "Pussy Riot" opposition and this was clear to all Russians, because the opposition did not offer an alternative, they did not have a platform of their own, all of them had one agenda: get rid of Putin. Thankfully they failed.

For the most part thanks must be given to the robust and effective Russian intelligence and security services, in particular the efforts of the Federal Security Service (FSB), since all of McFaul’s plans were cut off at the pass. Through the expelling of USAID and the law on foreign agents, all of his instruments of subversion were taken away.

While he was in Russia he failed win the hearts and minds of Russians and failed to find common ground and a diplomatic position on issues such as Syria, Jackson Vannick, the Magnitsky list and even Edward Snowden. Under his watch the CIA continuously attempted to recruit members of the security services and police but even that was for the most part a complete failure, and like his academic work before his "diplomatic" work, his legacy was lackluster, one completely devoid of any accomplishments and overall a complete failure. Obviously he failed to fulfill his mission in Russia.

When McFaul arrived in Moscow he said he came to educate the Russian people on America, when he left he was sorry he could not convince anyone he had not come to organize a revolution. Such statements make it clear that Russia "expert" McFaul had little respect for the intelligence of Russians and a complete lack of understanding about Russia in general.

Yet he continues to be presented in the western media as a Russia expert when it is clear he knows almost nothing about Russia, how to deal with the Russian people and how to work with the Russian Government.

How someone who: does not speak the language, never really interfaced with the Russian people and spent his entire time in Moscow hiding in the embassy or going places where the people only spoke English, can pretend to be a Russia expert is beyond me, but just as he was so transparently trying to organize a color revolution in Russia he is now just as transparently continuing to demonize Russia and repeating lie after lie in what can only be described as propaganda for idiots.

His calls for more NATO troops on Russian borders, isolating Russia and ridding Europe of any influence or dependence on Russia are not calls from an expert on Russia or a diplomat but from any neoconservative right wing chicken hawk whack job in the US.

While the western media continues to say McFaul left Moscow of his own volition it is clear that there were many times that he was on the verge of being declared persona non grata for his abrasiveness and lack of diplomacy in dealing with the Russian Government and for his outrageous statements and behavior and there are those who say he was asked to leave at a Kremlin meeting in December. Therefore it was no surprise to see him now demonizing Russia every chance he gets in the western media no sooner had he left.

McFaul came to Russia to organize a color revolution and to destroy Russia and President Putin from within and when he was found out struck out at everyone who criticized him and his subversive tactics and polices, including attempting to discredit and have arrested members of the Russia press, media and bloggers who he demonized to no end when they did not print or report favorable stories about him and his deeds. He accused media outlets of being KGB operatives and following him around endlessly and criticized and threatened any media or its representatives that did not publish exactly what he wanted them to publish. I personally faced the wrath of McFaul for outing his color revolution plans the day after he arrived a fact I will not forget and one which you can find out about by Googleing.

Out of touch op-ed

In an op-ed for the New York Times McFaul obfuscates, lies and pretends to know the Russian soul but this could be no farther from the truth. He starts his op-ed by saying "The decision by President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia to annex Crimea ended the post-Cold War era in Europe." This statement is wrong on so many levels that it boggles the mind how anyone who knows anything about Russia or what happened in Crimea could possibly be expected to believe it. But then again it is designed for the American public who know nothing about what really happened.

McFaul wants you to believe it was first a decision by President Putin and then that it was in some way an annexation. First to annex means to take territory by force, this in no way happened in Crimea. Second the decision was not one made by President Putin but was one forced on the Crimean people by the destabilizations efforts of the US, the US support for neo-nazis and the US backed coup in Kiev.

While Yulia Tymoshenko and others in Ukraine are calling for what can be described as genocide against the Russian population of Ukraine and with open calls by the Right Sector and nazis to kill Russians, Crimeans held democratic referendum and voted to become part of the Russian Federation. As for Russian forces in Crimea. I will repeat again, what I have been saying for months, they have been there for decades under legal agreements.

For McFaul to say: "We did not seek this confrontation." Shows the complete and utter disregard he has for the truth and the obvious stupidity he thinks his audience possesses. We know by scores of revelations, none more damning than the conversation that was released between Victoria Nuland and Geoffrey Pyatt, that the entire coup in Ukraine was organized and funded by the US. Nuland was even kind enough to give us the price tag, $5 billion, yet McFaul wants to play innocent and demonize President Putin and distract the world’s public to the truth. Perhaps McFaul did not seek this confrontation. Perhaps the planners in Washington actually thought they could just subvert the government in Ukraine and no one would notice or protest and they would be allowed to subjugate the population and get their hands on all the resources. Perhaps they thought their neo-nazi proxies would take all of the heat and after helping to install a puppet government which just go away. Wrong.

McFaul then says: "This new era crept up on us, because we did not fully win the Cold War" and goes on to say what that means which of course we already know. Russia was supposed to open up its markets and become another client state for the West and the US while implementing neo-liberal western policies.

He then says Russians resented the terms of the Cold War’s end, as if this is something bad. Of course Russians resented becoming just another US source for wealth and this was not allowed to stand. Which is why the West so dislikes President Putin. Unlike previous leaders who were willing to give away Russia or sell it off cheap President Putin said Nyet and for this he is demonized.

McFaul again is delusional when he tries to separate Russia and President Putin as if he knows what the people want and can somehow say they do not want President Putin who enjoys an over 86% approval rating. He also again fails to blame his own emperor in chief Obama for pushing for the coup in Ukraine and the predecessor for invading South Ossetia.

Once again McFaul proves what we all know, with his cleverly constructed argument attempting to separate beloved President Putin from the will of the Russians, he shows he has no idea or understanding whatsoever of the Russian people. In his op-ed he attempts to demonize President Putin while saying the Russian people have nothing to do with the current state of affairs.

McFaul: "A revisionist autocratic leader instigated this new confrontation. We did not. Nor did "Russia" start this new era. Mr. Putin did. It is no coincidence that he vastly weakened Russia’s democratic institutions over the last two years before invading Crimea, and has subsequently moved to close down independent media outlets during his Ukrainian land grab."

Given that the entire situation in Ukraine was a US/NATO/EU organized coup and territory/resource/military grab orchestrated by a dictatorial imperial president (Obama) blaming President Putin is ridiculous. Calling Russia’s democratic institutions weakened, McFaul is clearly referring to those that the US could no longer manipulate, for we know that for the West "democracy" means exploitable. It was these "democratic institutions that USAID, McFaul and the US’ NGO brigade attempted to subvert control and exploit.

To characterize anything that has occurred in Crimea as an invasion is clearly beyond the pale. The real act of aggression with regard to the situation in Ukraine lies with the US pulling off a violent coup in Kiev.

Again we must recall that Russia had the right, for almost 2 decades to station up to 25,000 troops in Crimea. You can not invade a country where you are already located, yet McFaul and the western media ignore this fact. As for the media outlets, it has only been the US and the Ukrainian Bandera Nazis that have closed down media outlets, forbidden foreign journalists from entering Ukraine and who have censored and published false reports regarding the real situation in Crimea. Recent coverage of Svoboda operatives beating the director of Ukrainian channel one and forcing him to resign under duress are further proof of US media manipulation.

McFaul: "Ukraine must succeed as a democracy, a market economy and a state. High on its reform list must be energy efficiency and diversification, as well as military and corruption reforms."

Again the hypocrisy of McFaul is mind numbing. They brought neo-nazis to power and speak of democracy? The CIA/NATO/US/EU have done everything possible to make Ukraine fail as a state. As for a "market economy" this obviously means easily exploitable by the West because Ukraine’s real economy depended on trade with Russia and that is what the West wants to stop. If the US and the West wanted Ukraine to prosper and grow they would have encouraged Ukraine to join the Russian led Customs Union which would have seen the country gaining $100 billion in 7 years, as opposed to a measly $1 billion from the US with IMF sovereignty ridding and enslaving conditions attached. But we know the US does no want other countries to prosper, on the contrary the US is in the business of destroying and subverting nations and this fact is documented.

With regard to energy, we know that part of the EU agreement entails giving the entire Russian gas pipeline to Exxon oil, yes %100. Diversification means not counting on Russia for gas but allowing for the import of extremely expensive American gas, hence one condition of EU association is raising gas prices to European levels, very profitable for Exxon oil but coupled with other austerity measures devastating for the Ukrainian people. Just another example of how the West intends to enslave Ukraine and its people.

As for the military reforms McFaul spoke about in his op-ed, he means allowing NATO into the country and then going through the expensive and massive "NATO" interoperability upgrades. Again requiring huge amounts of the countries GDP to be directed to the military for the obtainment of US sold hardware, training and equipment. Again profitable only for huge American corporations and devasting for the Ukrainian population. As for corruption this is laughable and anyone reading McFaul’s words should be rolling on the floor with laughter. Klitschko, Tugyabok and Yatsenyuk, are all bought and paid for and the current western installed puppet regime in Kiev is probably one of the most corrupt to have ever existed in Europe in modern times.Ukrainians were already upset about corruption and the Bandera nazis have only move corruption up to the level of outright lawlessness.

McFaul: "Also, as during the 20th century, those states firmly on our side must be assured and protected. NATO has moved quickly already, but these efforts must be sustained through greater placement of military hardware in the front-line states, more training and integration of forces, and new efforts to reduce NATO countries’ dependence on Russian energy."

While some in Russia believed the West wanted a reset rhetoric like this proves that the US/NATO has done nothing but continue expanding and viewing Russia as an enemy. Another fact lacking in McFaul’s rant is the fact the Ukraine is NOT a NATO member.

We already know that US/NATO want to surround Russia and install missile "defense" elements that are part of a first nuclear strike capability that will allow for any of Russia’s retaliatory missiles to be liquidated, but Russia has advanced past their technology and this will never work. McFaul calling for more NATO forces and troops on Russia’s borders is nothing but military brinkmanship and saber rattling from a chicken hawk too foolish to understand the subtleties of diplomacy.

In this single statement McFaul admits once and for all that Russia is still viewed as enemy number one in the US and that it is NATO that has been tasked with taking over and surrounding Russia at the expense of NATO member countries. Do NATO countries know they are merely vassals and slaves carrying out Washington’s geopolitical ambitions? Obviously if they did they might protest.

McFaul: "And, as before, the current regime must be isolated. The strategy of seeking to change Kremlin behavior through engagement, integration and rhetoric is over for now. No more membership in the Group of 8, accession to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development or missile defense talks. Instead there must be sanctions, including against those people and entities — propagandists, state-owned enterprises, Kremlin-tied bankers — that act as instruments of Mr. Putin’s coercive power. Conversely, individuals and companies not connected to the government must be supported, including those seeking to take assets out of Russia or emigrate."

Oh how they love to use the word regime to demonize. If we want to talk about regimes that must be isolated let’s talk about the Obama regime, a regime guilty for more death and destruction than any other in modern history including the current destabilization in Ukraine.

Why must Russia be isolated? Because the US says so? Because it is not a client state? Because it is amassing wealth and geopolitical clout while calling for the rule of law, respect for sovereignty and an end to lawlessness? Because it is providing Europe with goods and services decreasing the US hold on Europe?

Changing Kremlin behavior? Coming from a regime guilty of more international crimes than any since Hitler the hypocrisy is stunning.

As for sanctions against "propagandists" (that means me and I ask once again include me on your sanctions list) and the like and exclusion from the G-8, etc.. This is truly laughable. Europe needs Russia, the G-8 countries need Russia. It was the only country in the group with a positive overall economic dynamic. And as we have seen Russian officials openly laugh at the US sanctions list and call it an attempt at political blackmail. When enough Russian officials feel the need to visit Disneyland or the like, I am sure Russia will build its own.

Calling everything an instrument of President Putin’s power is also ludicrous and finally calling for those who want to take the wealth out of the country to be supported is so ridiculously self-serving as to also be laughable. Has Russia ever called for those wishing to steal from the US and bring the money overseas to be supported? No. Unbelieveable.

McFaul: "One obvious difference is that the Internet did not exist during the last standoff. Recent Kremlin moves to cut off citizens from independent information are disturbing, but the communications revolution ensures that Russians today will not be as isolated as their grandparents."

Against the hypocrisy is breathtaking. Russia has more independent media than any other country in the world and has not attempted to censor it. Nor has it attempted to control or censor the internet unlike the US and the West. One thing McFaul forgot is that the Internet has also allowed for common Russians to understand the truly nefarious and black nature of US foreign policy and NATO expansion.

McFaul: "Greater exposure to the world gives Russians a comparative analysis to judge their situation at home."

It is a shame Americans do not have the same exposure.

McFaul: "But there are two important differences that weaken our hand. First, the United States does not have the same moral authority as it did in the last century. As ambassador, I found it difficult to defend our commitment to sovereignty and international law when asked by Russians, "What about Iraq?" Some current practices of American democracy also do not inspire observers abroad. To win this new conflict, we must restore the United States as a model."

Commitment to sovereignty and international law? Did he really say that? Yes he did. Sovereignty like in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Iran, Cuba, Serbia, Afghanistan and Ukraine.

As for some current practices, there is the overthrowing of governments and the destabilizing of countries such as Ukraine, Venezuela, Syria, Egypt and others. The continuing operation of an illegal extra-territorial torture prison and the almost daily extra-judicial executions by the imperial killer in chief in Obama, the only leader in the world who kills anyone anywhere in the world at will. There is also the massive global spying, the police surveillance security state, the ongoing practice of aggressive war, institutionalized racism, police brutality, the war on journalists and whistleblowers and the list goes on.

The United States will never be a model again. The support of neo-nazis in Ukraine and the overthrowing of a democratically elected European Government guarantee that. Finally the insane US drive to force the world to accept two men committing sodomy as a marriage, serves as the final nail on the coffin of US moral superiority. Americans need to understand one fact. They are exceptional and "chosen" only in their own minds.

The US’ Ukrainian puppets call for genocide

Further underlining the nature of, and who in fact are, the criminals that the US and McFaul support another conversation was leaked on the internet. As with Nuland/Pyatt and the choosing of puppets and Ashton/Paet regarding the Madian snipers being hired by the western backed nazis, a new conversation between former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko and the former Deputy Secretary of National Security and Defense Nestor Shufrych during which it was said that Ukrainians must take up arms against Russians so that not even scorched earth will be left where Russia stands and that the 8 million Russians in Ukraine must be killed, has caused quite a stir.

Of course calls for genocide against Russians is not being squawked about in the West. Like the indigenous peoples of the Americas, Russians are views as (according to Yulia Tymoshenko) superfluous and a pest that has to be eradicated. Dear world, please wake up. It will only take one little trade agreement, or one non-US-sanctioned choice by your leaders, and your country may be next. As for McFaul, he should keep his day job and stay out of geopolitics and regime change operations, we can see where that has gotten the US so far. Zilch. And several tens of billions of dollars just thrown away. 

After Ukrainian Coup War-Profiteer Obama Wants to Sell US Gas to Europe

27 March, 03:54

US President Barack Hussein Obama today made it crystal clear to anyone left in the world who has not been paying attention as to what his corporate controlled government's interests are in Ukraine and Europe. In a televised address Obama eloquently (if not falteringly as if his forked tongue was having problems spewing the lies he was stating) laid out the facts for the world to see and for the world to blindly obey. 

The world, as the ruler of the world sees it, will isolate Russia and cease to do business or have normal relations with it. Europe will no longer accept cheap Russian gas. And finally Europe will buy American gas at astronomical rates and shut up about it. Because as Obama said, the stolen lands where he resides have made him, Exxon and his oil company Halliburton friends, "… blessed by some incredible resources". The European Commission head Manuel Jose Barroso followed lock step with Obama’s meme and even went one step further in calling gas achieved from fracking: "… a blessing to the world."

Dear citizens of the world, those residing in the US, the peoples of Europe and anyone who is under the influence of the US controlled corporate media, you are being manipulated and lied to and you will be had like a banana republic. The level of propaganda and lies in your media and that you are being fed by your leaders has reached a level of criminality heretofore rarely seen in modern times.

I don’t usually get personal but it is with a sick heart and with a certain level of hopelessness that I write these words, having already been threatened and knowing that these words will have little effect in countering the corporate government controlled US and western mass media. I have been fighting to get the truth to you for decades, to try to make a difference but fighting a corporate/government media propaganda machine with limitless resources and the support of a conglomeration of intelligence agencies and corporate internet giants subservient to the criminals in power in the West is all but impossible, but I will fight to the end, to try to get the truth to you.

For my regular readers you know I have always fought for the little guy and those being unjustly subjugated, demonized, marginalized, exploited, enslaved, having their rights violated or even being completely obliterated.

Like Russia’s leaders and the Russian Government I have always called out and taken issue with those in the US, the West and elsewhere who are violating the rule of international law, disrespecting the rights of peoples to self-determination, ignoring sovereignty and committing crimes against humanity.

Sometimes I have been too "harsh" in my attempts at getting the truth out about Russia, Serbs, Libyans, Russian Orthodox Christians, Syrians, American Indians, ethnic and racial "minorities", hacktivists, Anonymous, journalists, WikiLeaks, Venezuelans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Muslims, whistleblowers, Ukrainians, the poor, Muslims and all of the people(s), countries and issues I have written about and conducted interviews about over the years. But now it is different, the full frontal assault has been launched directly at me, at my home, my colleagues and the country that has taken me in, the Russian Federation. If you are reading this, then it is clear that my bosses have let me take the gloves off because to be honest I have had it.

It is truly physically sickening to watch how the western media has completely twisted the situation in Ukraine to one so far from reality that even the people of Orwell’s Oceania would have been shocked had they been subjugated to what we are seeing today. Albeit their state of endless war almost mirrors what is happening today.

Long ago (and I am ashamed to admit it) I like many others worldwide had hope in Obama, that he would bring about rule of law and finally bring peace to the world, but like the second coming of Satan in scripture he has proven to be worse than the soulless corporate beast of lies and death that the late Hugo Chavez called the devil and who had left the smell of sulfur behind him at the United Nations. Obama is worse because he plays on his race and stifles dissent by using it and unlike his imbecile predecessor, he is highly educated and knows exactly what he is doing. He has sold his soul, his people and all of humanity for the interests of corporate greed and the few billion dollars they have paid him.

The lies

The lies being spread by the western media and now the religious overtones to gas sales as "blessings" are far too orchestrated and far too many to counter and even list. However here are some of the big lies being presented as fact in the western media. They include: that Russia is somehow engaged in attempting to move further into Ukraine and Europe, that Russia somehow "annexed" Crimea (apparently the media believe people are too stupid to know what the word annex means and too lazy to look for real evidence of such an annexation), that the neo-nazi thugs the US unleashed in Ukraine represent the people, that the junta government which committed an armed coup in Kiev are legitimate, that there are no Russians being killed in Ukraine, that the referendum held by the people of Crimea to rejoin Russia was somehow not legitimate, that there was a military invasion of Crimea and/or Ukraine, that snipers on Maidan were acting on orders of President Yanukovich, that Ukrainians want an EU integration agreement, that somehow the conflict in Ukraine is Russia’s fault, that Russia is somehow attempting to expand a nonexistent empire, the Ukrainians do not want or need Russia, that US sanctions will somehow adversely affect Russia, that President Yanukovich was somehow legally removed from office, that there is no significant Russian population in Ukraine and finally that somehow the West wants to "help" Ukraine.

The omissions

The omissions are even worse than the outright lies above. Nowhere is the corporate controlled US propaganda machine debating the fact that Victoria Nuland was actively involved in the subversion of the Ukrainian Government at the behest of oil companies and admitted that the US had spent $5 billion on subverting Ukraine to her oil company controllers last December.

$5 billion when Americans have no jobs, no healthcare, schools are being privatized and they have no future in a country whose infrastructure is falling apart and where entire cities are going bankrupt. Neither is attention being paid to Nuland’s F-the EU conversation with her subordinate during which she gave instructions whom to place in government. Of course these are crimes under international law, but that is also ignored.

No one is much concerned that the entire situation in Ukraine was brought about by direct US meddling and of course the blood of innocents is once again on the US’ already blood dripping hands. This includes the snipers on Maidan who killed over 88 police officers. Of course no one wants to hear that the US Government funded and provided weapons for cop killing mercenaries in order to complete a destabilization operation. How would American cops feel if they knew their president was killing their colleagues at will?

The fact that the US ordered a false flag attack on a Ukrainian air force base that was supposed to be blamed on Russia before the 15th of March should have caused an uproar, but alas that is also not printed or debated. Just as the fact that US-backed-Al-Qaeda-lunatics in Syria murdered 426 children in Latakia to bring about the invasion of Syria, that is too much of an uncomfortable truth.

Nowhere will you find in the western press reports that Russians and Crimeans are being attacked and killed by the neo-nazis running rampant in Ukraine. Nor that they are stealing cars and homes and raping and pillaging at will, and calling for the killing of Jews, Russians and minorities.

Did the western press report that Obama’s neo-nazis went in front of the United Nations and denied the legitimacy of the Nuremberg Trials? Of course not. Do they report that the Bandera Nazis were more blood thirsty than the real nazi SS and killed approximately half a million Jews in Ukraine during WWII? Of course not. And of course nowhere will you see reports of a conversation during which Yulia Timoshenko called for killing the 8 million "superfluous" Russians in Ukraine.

Russia is the target of NATO and Crimea and Ukraine were NATO’s prize. This and continued aggressive NATO/US military expansion to the East and surrounding Russia and China with missiles and military elements is never debated. Nor is the ridiculous fictitious nature of the "War on Terror" and the illegal invasion and occupation of Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Afghanistan where 150,000 US troops were stationed for 13 years to fight 19 Al-Qaeda fighters and where each soldier is costing the American taxpayer over a million dollars a day.

The truth

Regarding some imagined "Crimean Invasion": the only way into Crimea by land forces would be through Ukraine, therefore an "invasion" of Crimea would have entailed invading Ukraine first. Please look at a map dear reader. There is not a single road, bridge or tunnel from mainland Russian territory into the Republic of Crimea. All of the few Russian forces that are in Crimea have been there for decades and were part of the Black Sea Fleet and also Russia had a legally binding agreement to station as many as 25,000 troops in Crimea. There was no invasion or movement of Russian troops into Ukraine or Crimea. As I said it was physically impossible. Just like three steel framed skyscrapers collapsing into their own footprints because of office fires. Getting the picture dear reader?

Crimea has been historically part of Russia for centuries. Unlike Americans who have squatted on Indian lands for 200 years, Russia’s ties to Crimea go back to ancient days and Crimea had always been part of Russia until it was given to Ukraine like a sack of potatoes during Soviet times by a Ukrainian Chairman of the Central Committee who I shall not name. Therefore it was a joyous reunification.

The real reason the US is interested in Ukraine is because of Russian influence (which they want to diminish worldwide), natural resources, the eviction of the Black Sea Fleet, the establishment of yet another NATO subjugated client state and the Russian pipeline pumping Russian gas to Europe. The 100% transfer of ownership of the pipeline was to pass to Exxon Oil, something cleverly included in the EU Association agreement. An agreement which the Ukrainian people do not want and have not even been allowed to read or debate.

The gas war

The only reason that the EU agreement which President Yanukovich refused to sign included a clause to raise Ukrainian gas prices to European levels was that the idiots in Washington thought they could grab the pipeline, continue to get cheap Russian gas, at even cheaper discounted rates, and make a killing by selling it to Ukrainians and Europe at a higher price.

Europe receives more than 35% of its gas from Russia. And Russia can turn it off without suffering as much as crisis hit Europe will. Russia is not in the midst of an economic crisis. The US and Europe are, and now we know the US wants to save itself by selling Europeans down river. Not to mention completely destroying and poisoning their own environment by getting the gas they want to sell by fracking.

You dear European consumer are being conned by criminals in Washington and the drone murderer in chief as well as your own bought and paid for European leaders. Think about this for a moment: Russia has provided you with cheap dependable gas for years, with no conditions attached. Russia did not tell you to arrest the war criminals in Washington, or stop trade relations with same. Russia did not tell you to allow it to station its military bases or missiles on your lands. Russia has not made you swallow its culture or learn its language as you have been forced to swallow, accept and count as normal American knuckle dragging "culture", perverted lifestyles and their language which is not your own. Russia has not forced your countries to expand your militaries or spend billions on American military hardware while you are living in an economic crisis being manipulated by the West. Russia has not asked your men to die in illegal wars of aggression or pretend there is a fantasy threat from some evil power that you have to pay Russia to protect you from.

And now the monsters in Washington have unleashed the forces of fascism in the largest country in Europe other than Russia. They have financed trained and armed nazis to overthrow a democratically elected European Government and you are silent? You support Obama? You dear European know that it was Russia and the USSR who rid the world of the nazi scourge yet you allow nazis in Ukraine to desecrate monuments to that victory? To beat and kill civilians who refuse to defile the memories of those killed by the nazis. You dear Europeans know what the nazis did. You had relatives, or friends or close ones or know of someone who died fighting or were brutally murdered by the nazi scourge. Yet you support nazis in Ukraine and support the devil in Washington who thinks he rules the world and has unleashed these nazis once again in Europe, all of this so he can sell you his overpriced gas?

There is nothing more I can say Europe. You can stay blind and pretend Washington really cares about you while it rapes your lands and economies and unleashes nazis and Al-Qaeda terrorists wherever it pleases (and believe me you will be next the minute you step out of line) or finally (and this is directly addressed at your leaders) maybe someone other than President Putin or Foreign Minister Lavrov will have the courage to tell the devil in Washington "enough is enough". You have been pawned Europe. There is no Russian threat. Cut off your cheap Russian gas and buy expensive fracked gas from blood spattered Uncle Sam as you continue to give up a large part of your GDP to NATO and the Uncle’s war machine. And mark my words, the "ruler of the world" will sell you and your country down river the minute you are no longer exploitable. Ask the Serbs, the Libyans, the Iraqis, the Syrians, the Ukrainians and keep your eye on the ball. Scotland next? Nothing but death comes from across the pond, they are a people cursed by the blood of the genocide they carried to get their lands.

Want to talk about sanctions Europe? Talk about sanctions for unleashing nazis in Ukraine and for overthrowing a democratically elected government in a European country. That is what your uncle across the pond is guilty of (as well as spying on your leaders and manipulating your economies but we won’t go there yet will we?). Have some spine and for the love of God almighty stop demonizing Russia at the behest of the devil in Washington. Russia was just trying to do business with you and was selling you cheap gas. As for Ukraine you know the kind of neo-nazi forces that are present in some European countries, shall we let Anders Brevik out and let him run for president of Ukraine next. I am sure Obama would agree if Brevik helped him achieve his Brezhinsky mentored geopolitical goals and he proved useful against Russia, for that is all this is about. The empire is afraid it may be challenged.

Uncle says: "Psst! Europe… Pleased to meet you! Hope you guessed my name! Wanna buy some gas? We got cheap stolen gas off American Indian lands! If you buy it we will sell you more guns and our cultural icon Lady something or other will come by and visit. Forget that Russian stuff. Ours be better! Theirs be bad, c’mon we got what you need…Gas and guns. If you don’t buy you be next. Gawanteed."

American Indians Also Have the Right to Self-Determination

30 March, 22:15   http://www.jar2.com/Crimea/Crimea.html

American Indians also have the right to self-determination

While the world is focused on Crimea and the right of the Crimean people to self-determination there is a group of people that has more of a right to self-determination than any other in the world. 

These people have had their entire country taken away and all of their lands stolen through invasion, trickery and a twisting of laws that they never agreed to live under and never understood. These people, like the peoples of many colonized nations have been and continue to be the victims of the most horrendous organized genocide in the history of mankind.

The genocide of these people makes the Holocaust, where approximately 40 million Jews were brutally exterminated, pale in comparison, these people (by maximum accounts) lost up to 800 million individuals. All orders for their annihilation and the laws and documents giving the invaders the self-given right to steal their lands have never been rescinded, and the genocide continues.

These people live in zones determined by the invaders who stole their lands and continue to exist almost voicelessly cut off from modern society purposefully marginalized and treated worse than slaves.

What is left of these proud people are the real owners of their lands and continue to fight the invaders in any way they can but the brutal criminal American state, that has stolen everything they had, continues to oppress them and deny them the rights that any human being is entitled to, especially the right to self-determination.

These people are the Indigenous people of North and South America and the most egregious oppressor is the United States of America. The American Indians, as the natives of their lands, as peoples with their own languages, customs and beliefs have the right to self-determination like any other human beings.

That right, however, continues to be denied to them. There is no super-power which will help them, there is no movement or group which is effectively fighting for them on the international level. They are a quiet and peaceful people so they do not take up arms, kill the occupiers or organize terrorist acts against the invaders and murderers of their people. Therefore they are easy to marginalize and to ignore.

While the world considers and debates the right of the Crimean People, including the Russians, Ukrainians and Crimean Tartars, and is faced with the bald-faced hypocrisy of the United States of America and their leader Barrack Hussein Obama who are supporting neo-nazi fascists in Ukraine and getting away with overthrowing yet another government in a grab for more territory and resources and the continuation of their insane campaign to surround, conquer and divide the Russia, one might pause and consider why it is that the US is so obviously irrational. And,moreover, why the US does not sign or support declarations on human rights or key human rights organizations and those supporting the rule of law internationally and why they continue to slaughter millions all over the world spreading like a cancer devouring everything in their path.

The one simple reason why the United States can not recognize the rights of the people of Crimea or Ukraine, why they continue to run a "secret" system of apartheid and imprison millions of their "minorities" who they execute at will, why they continue to aggressively invade country after country under false pretexts and overthrow governments in violation of international laws and standards is because the United States is an illegal country founded on genocide by drunken outcasts of European society blinded by greed and with an insane blood lust for murder.

If the United States begins to follow the framework of law, respect sovereignty and recognize the rights of people to self-determination (not to mention all of the other laws and rights they are violating) then they will have to respect the right of the American Indian Nations to self-determination. They will have to rescind the orders to exterminate the Indian people and they will have seek the annulment of the Doctrine of Discovery and give the stolen lands back to the Indians. The greedy resource billionaires who control the US Government will never do that.

So the hypocrisy and double standards will continue for it is not possible to for a country and a government to function normally and respect the peoples of the world, when they are themselves living with a psychosis and keeping entire peoples locked in their basement.

For the innocent, oppressed, exploited and subjugated masses yearning to breathe free are not citizens from all over the world who yearn for some false American dream and struggle to reach US shores, but the native people who are kept on reservations and treated as less than human by squatting invaders who committed genocide so that they could never be challenged for all that they have stolen.

US Support/Training of Yarosh and Right Sector: Another Victory for US Terror

30 March, 01:14   http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Right_Sector.html

Dmitry Yarosh

Homosexual and Fascist Dmitry Yarosh

The US Government, through the use of paramilitary neo-nazi extremist elements carried out the overthrowing of the government of Ukraine. Admissions, statements and the actions of US Government officials and hundreds of taped conversations, private e-mails, and uncontested facts that have been reported and released prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US was behind the coup in Ukraine, yet the “world community” is quiet and the disgrace and affront to humanity that the West calls “Euro-Maidan” continues to blight and sully the concepts of democracy, rule of law, sovereignty and civilization in front of the eyes of the world. ​

The geopolitical architects of Maidan

Brezhinsky acolytes, neo-conservative PNAC planners, CIA, NATO, the Pentagon, the US corporate/military industrial complex that controls the entire US Government including the President of the United States Barrack Hussein Obama (who has become nothing more than a gas salesman of late) and the entire US foreign policy establishment decided they wanted regime change in Ukraine.

The goal of the western cabal is many fold in Ukraine but includes: cementing US hegemony in former Soviet Republics, installing NATO war elements to continue to surround Russia, ending Russian influence in Ukraine, dividing the Slavic world, weakening the Russian Orthodox Church, controlling and profiting off the flow of Russian gas into Europe, evicting the Black Sea Fleet and ending all trade between Ukraine and Russia.

The planners needed a fifth column in Ukraine, one that would hate Russia enough to do anything to bring about the change of government that was needed in order for Washington to continue with its nefarious plans of world domination and control of resources. They spent at least $5 billion and 10 years training neo-nazis including the Right Sector and organizing a coup d’état timed to begin with the start of the Olympic Games in Sochi so as to lessen the impact of the success that was had by Russia in organizing and hosting the games.

All of those facts and more are known to the world as is the plain and simple fact that the regime in Kiev is nothing more than an installed puppet show organized by the West and in no way representing the Ukrainian people. The names and actors behind the coup are also no secret, as is the fact that the Right Sector is nothing but a gang of ruthless, lawless, nazi thugs yet there is no outcry, there is no backing off by western politicians who continue to support the lawless nazi killers and the western media continue marching in lock step aiding and abetting in what has become truly one of the single greatest disgraces for Washington and the western world.

There can now be absolutely no doubt (if there ever was one) that the US/NATO/EU are co-conspirators in an illegal, aggressive, amoral and dangerous project to control the world, its wealth and its resources and will stop at nothing to meet their goal.

Obama (as the signatory) and his Washington planners unleashed what might be called the worst scum of the Earth in Ukraine and they will soon learn how ignorant they have been in their global regime change campaign strategy. A strategy that has seen Washington supporting terrorists, creating Al-Qaeda, recruiting training and financing people like Osama Bin Laden, supporting right wing paramilitaries and employing an army of non-state mercenaries and private contractors to complete their “missions” around the world. Only this time it will not stand.

Washington will soon see how their ignorance of the peoples of the world and their attempts to shape the world in their own image and to control it will finally cause the end of what is currently known as the United States of America. This end is sure to come because they have gone too far and the people of the world will no longer be able to look the other way, and when that option is gone, those in Washington will finally have to face an accounting for everything they have done, from 9-11 to the 426 children slaughtered in Latakia Syria.

Supporting terrorists and using terror

The “catastrophic and catalyzing event” that the neo-con planners behind the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) needed as a catalyst for global military domination was 9-11. Since that day the “War on Terror” paradigm has seen the United States literally use terror to conquer the world.

First there were the illegal and aggressive invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, then the surrounding of Russia and China with NATO war elements and the global expansion of NATO which became a global expeditionary force to terrorize the world and bring it into submission for Washington. WE have also seen the collusion and cooperation with Al-Qaeda and radical Islamic terrorists and now the funding, training and backing of neo-nazis in Ukraine.

The Right Sector is the latest US regime change force and like the US using the ultimate terror of nuclear attack when need be, the Right Sector has used terror to overthrow a democratically elected government in a European country and continues to attempt to control and bring the people of Ukraine into submission through a western backed reign of terror.

Terrorism is broadly defined as the use of terror to bring about political aims, and that is exactly what the Right Sector have done.The believe they have done so for their fascist neo-nazi ideology and for the “purity” of Ukraine, but in reality they have just been used and manipulated by Washington into bringing about regime change which will lead to the complete destruction and enslavement of what is left of Ukraine once the West divides up the spoils.

The Right Sector

The blight and the disgrace against humanity that is the Right Sector and all of their associated groups continue to occupyMaidan Nezalezhnosti, the central square of Kiev, and hold the Ukrainian people and the Ukrainian Government hostage as their reign of terror continues unabated and for the most part unchallenged.

The Right Sector is a neo-nazi group led by terrorist DmitryYarosh. They follow the ideology of Stepan Bandera a nazi collaborator during World War II who led Ukrainian fascists and whose brutality and inhumanity was even considered extreme by the German nazi SS.

During their orgy of slaughter and bloodshed the Ukrainian “Bandervites” killed at least 4 million Jews and other ethnic minorities in Ukraine. They were well known for slaughtering children, especially small girls and hanging their victims from street lamps and other public fixtures as a warning.

The current Right Sector has repeatedly threatened to hang their opponents and have placed nooses all over the country as a warning to anyone who opposes them. They have openly called for hanging blacks, Jews and Russians (something also called for by their brethren the ku-klux-klan and other neo-nazi groups) and have threatened to hang public officials and anyone else who does not follow their wishes.

Dmitry Yarosh

Their leader, Dmitry Yarosh, is a known terrorist who fought alongside Chechen terrorists (the same Chechen terrorists that the US and the UK have given asylum to on multiple occasions) against Russian Forces. He is a blood thirsty animal who has no problem screaming Glory to Allah or Heil Hitler as long as he is playing to the bloodlust of whoever he happens to be killing with.

Yarosh recently called for Chechens to rise up and launch terrorist attacks on Russians in Ukraine, for open warfare with the Russian Federation and for Crimean Tartars to join his Right Sector in fighting in Crimea.

Yarosh is on an international wanted list and has been sanctioned by several countries and governments for his past activities. He is wanted for forming illegal armed groups, openly calling for terrorist acts and murder. He should also be wanted for organizing and taking part in an armed coup which overthrew a democratically elected government but so far no charges as to the coup have filed or called for. A rabid-dog-frothing-at-the-mouth-with-hate-for-Russia he is the perfect servant for Washington in Ukraine, although he supposedly hates the West as well and will bite their hand when the time comes.

Yarosh has announced he is running for president in the upcoming Ukrainian elections.

Alexander Muzychko

Other wise known as Sasha Bilyi, Muzychko was also another rapid dog like Yarosh, but with less brains and nothing but a ruthless brute. Also a wanted terrorist and a leader of the Right Sector, Muzychkoalso fought with Chechen terrorists and is wanted for torturing and murdering Russian soldiers who had been captured.

Muzychko received a lot of media attention shortly before his death for his storming of the government offices and his assault on a local prosecutor, events which were filmed and placed on the internet.

He is ridiculed for one segment which appeared on the internet where he challenged a gathering of frightened officials (which he had invaded) to take away his automatic rifle, his knife and other weapons. He epitomized the image of a brainless bandit whose only means of attaining power was through violence and fear.

Muzychko’s life ended the way he led it. He was shot, or shot himself, and died like a rapid dog with his face in the dirt. After his death the Right Sector’s “peaceful demonstrators” attempted to storm the Parliament of Ukraine demanding the resignation of the junta appointed Interior Minister Arsen Avakov.

Many of the Right Sectors "peacefully demonstrators" called for his hanging for the death of their “brother”. The Right Sector claims Muzychko was killed on Avakov’s orders.

It is an interesting note that the junta which the West wants in power, is ready to arrest and perhaps even kill Right Sector members who helped them rise to power. Along with a recent video released by several news agencies which shows Maidan participants confronting their paymasters and unhappy because they did not receive their money, this is something which further underlines the fact that the Right Sector and other groups were simply used and are to be disposed of. 

Crimes and atrocities committed by the Right Sector

The overthrowing of the democratically elected government of Ukraine and the occupation of Maidan Nezalezhnosti continue to be a disgrace for Ukraine in the eyes of the world and a clear and resounding victory for western lawlessness and mafia/terrorist tactics, and their reign of terror has included too many crimes to list here but I will attempt to list a few.

Arresting, deporting, and shutting down the press

The Right Sector has arrested, interrogated and deported scores of Russian and foreign journalists. They have beaten, intimidated, terrorized and even killed members of the Ukrainian media, bloggers and anyone else they could get their hands on who spoke out against them, in favor of Russia or for attempting to report on their illegal activities.

Ukraine and the Right Sector have shut down all Russian television broadcasts into Ukraine and have even attacked Russian television infrastructure and various websites.

Many bloggers who have been beaten have been filmed bloodied and on their knees by the Right Sector and forced to apologize to the Ukrainian people. The Right Sector has no problem beating and even killing people in front of cameras as they killed several police on Maidan Square in December by beating them to death.

Terrorizing and even killing the public

Before the media blackout hit Ukraine there were increasing reports of Right Sector paramilitaries killing civilians and people fleeing Kiev and Western Ukraine. One report had a bus full of Crimeans killed after having gasoline poured on them and many being beaten, forced to their knees and forced to sing the Ukrainian National Anthem.

There have been multiple reports and it is known that it is standard procedure for the Right Sector to threaten the families of officials and anyone else they target, to steal cars and even force landowners to sign over their deeds, and to even burn down the homes of and kill anyone who is too loud in their opposition.

Recent reports from Ukraine show Right Sector members running rampant in the streets and attacking and beating anyone who is wearing a St. George’s Ribbon or who appears to be pro-Russian.

Recently a motorcade of pro-Russian activists was attacked and hammers and other heavy objects were thrown through the windows and the occupants were forced out of their cars and beaten.

Ukrainians have been terrorized into silence and Russians and other minorities including Germans continue to flee the country.

Holocaust Denial

The first act of the junta was to outlaw the Russian language, which is ridiculous because even the junta's presidential candidates are now broadcasting commercials in Russian and videos have been leaked of internal Right Sector meeting that are being conducted using the Russian language.

The second act, and one which the western media conveniently ignored, was a statement to the United Nations by the junta appointed representative saying the Nuremburg Trials were illegitimate and that Bandera did nothing wrong.

Obama’s support

Despite all that Muslim-“African”-American US President Barrack Obama continues to support the junta and has even had junta leader Yatsenyuk in the White House.

To see what appeared to some to be a serious country and serious politicians engaged in supporting the illegal junta in Ukraine is stunning, even mind-boggling until we realize that the EU association agreement which the junta was installed to pass into law includes a clause to transfer %100 of the Russian gas pipeline to Exxon Oil, after raising gas prices to "European levels" of course.

Want to buy some gas Europe? The US is selling.

Western Media Lies: No Russian Threat to Ukraine

7 April, 00:4

The clandestine invasion of Ukraine by the West is an unprecedented, disgraceful and heinous victory of international lawlessness by the US/NATO/EU. The violent coup d'état staged by western backed neo-nazi elements, the subsequent secretly planned subjugation and enslavement of the Ukrainian people and the seizing of the resources of Ukraine is not only a violation of the territorial integrity of Ukraine but another illegal attempt at nation building/destroying by US geopolitical architects attempting in vain to save a dying empire and establish American hegemony worldwide.The brutal racist lawless state that is the United States of America is embodied by their bought and paid for brownshirts in Kiev who continues terrorizing the populace and are a blight on the very ideas and fundamental principles of rule of law and democracy and they continue to stain the world unabated for the rest of the civilized world to see.

Russian journalists and members of the media from other countries working on the front lines in Ukraine and attempting to report the facts are faced with the daunting task of trying to counter the unprecedented tidal wave of lies, anti-Russian hysteria and war propaganda that is being broadcast and promoted around the clock by all of the major western corporate media. The carefully choreographed propaganda campaign of blatant slander and bald faced lies being pushed, published and broadcast as fact by the western corporate media, who try to outdo each other in their demonization of Russia and President Putin and their calls for military action against Russia, is so Orwellian in its conformist totalitarian nature and so beyond acceptable journalistic standards that even the people being subjugated to the attempted brainwashing are not buying into it and are beginning to protest.

Orwellian media manipulation: two goals

The outright anti-Russian lies and war propaganda being spread in an attempt to manipulate world opinion regarding the situation in Ukraine continue to be pushed on a scale almost unprecedented in modern history. The world is being faced with a disinformation/propaganda campaign carried out using the full power of all of the resources beholden to those behind the coup d'état in Kiev. These resources include the CIA, NSA, FVEY, the corporate mass media (which is controlled either directly or indirectly by government and intelligence agency forces), politicians, public figures and almost anyone else who has enough influence on public opinion to be manipulated and forced to march lock-step with those behind the events in Ukraine.

The first goal of the all out propaganda campaign is obvious; namely to demonize Russia in order to achieve various economic, military and political objectives.

The objectives of the West are supposed to be "secret" but they are obvious to ascertain by keeping one's eye on the ball and ear to the ground. They include the following:

1: Diminishing the growing influence of Russia and President Putin both in post-Soviet space and worldwide, especially after an extremely successful and more importantly; safe, Olympics. The West was also threatened by the growing strength of the BRICS countries, who they continue to attempt to keep down, the Russian led Customs Union and the plans for a Eurasian Economic Union. Russia and its allies continue to grow and strengthen economically and politically by simply expanding and strengthening mutually beneficial relations while the West is bogged down in a failing attempt to dominate the world by force as its economy is collapsing. The is beneficial for the globalists, the bankers, corporations (especially big oil and war profiteers) and western politicians.

2: Establishing another subservient NATO client state. The retrograde recidivist anachronism that is the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) continues to spread worldwide, advertising itself as some sort of "global expeditionary force" as it attempts to remain relevant and continue to fulfill its only goal, namely defeating the Soviet Union (Russia) and neutralizing threats (real, imagined or self-created) to the US and its NATO allies. The goal of NATO some are saying is bringing about WWIII if it can not establish global hegemony for the US. Another primary goal of NATO is to neutralize any military response against the West by any country that the US/NATO may decide to launch a nuclear first strike against. That may sound fantastic but that is the real reason behind the failed missile defense shield. Failed because the ABM shield, quite simply, does not work. NATO wants to place its missiles and military infrastructure in Ukraine and force Ukraine into giving up its sovereignty and non-aligned status, pay for expensive "interoperability upgrades" as well as the 2 percent of GDP NATO demands from its "members". This is beneficial to NATO and the military industrial complex as well as the bankers.

NATO itself admits that it is irrelevant and benefits from neo-nazi-like nationalism and that it is a burden to taxpayers. In a NATO document on the cost of expansion NATO says: "... having lost a reliable enemy, in the early 1990s NATO has experienced a serious identity crisis. Some might even argue that the Alliance was saved by the explosion of nationalism in the Balkans." That "reliable enemy" was USSR, hence they need to make Russia the enemy. As for the nationalists in Ukraine?

3: Taking over the European gas market, stopping the flow of Russian gas to Europe and raising the price of gas both for Ukrainians and Europeans. In a speech last December US oil tool Victoria Nuland admitted that the US had spent 5 billion taxpayer dollars on the Ukraine coup. Sponsored by Exxon and Chevron oil, Nuland's debriefing on government projects to oil interests proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US has become a corporate fascist stateand that the US Government is no longer a government of the people but of the corporations given that her accounting should have been to the American people whose taxpayer dollars she was spending, not big oil.

US President Obama is a fully owned corporate tool and this has been a fact since the very beginning. Beholden to his corporate masters, in particular big oil and the military/industrial/security/intelligence complex, Obama has made billions by being a gasoline salesman for big oil, a gun salesman, an insurance salesmana war and torture salesman and now again a gas salesman, selling non-existent gas to Europe.

4: Stealing wealth

The second goal of the relentless Russo-phobic media campaign is to deflect attention from the illegal activities of the US/NATO/EU in bringing about the coup in Kiev.

The West believes the best defense is to attack and they have been attacking Russia since day one of the Ukrainian crisis. These attacks have taken on a real world character by the actions of Washington's fascists in Kiev. Several events and revelations which should have brought down high US government officials and caused an international outcry (and in a just world led to officials facing an international tribunal), but which the US wants the public to ignore, include:

1: The Nuland $5 billion dollar Ukraine subversion revelations.

2: The Nuland/Pyatt puppet government makeup conversation.

3: The US planned Ukrainian false flag attack leaked by Anonymous.

4: The 300 Blackwater/XE/Greystone Limited mercenaries operating in Ukraine and deployed to carry out black operations.

5: The treason and German connections of Vitaly Klitschko.

6: The neo nazi nature of Svoboda, the Right Sector and other right wing groups in Ukraine.

7: The use of nazi tactics and nazi planning in Ukraine

8: The truth about Dmitry Yarosh, Yatsenyuk and Tyganbok.

9: The arming and training of the "opposition" in Ukraine by the CIA, NATO and western interests.

10: The entire color revolution scenario played out and paid for by the US and criminal cabal of neocons.

11: The Maidan snipers funded and brought in by the western backed neo-nazis.

12: The abuse, killing and threats against Russians and others in Ukraine including calls by theWest's blonde princess Yulia Timoshenko to kill 8 million Russians.

13: The shutting down of Russian media sources.

14: The fact that Nuland her puppets Yatsenyuk and Klitscko and many other key beneficiaries of the Ukrainian neo nazi coup are of the neocon persuasion and that rabid anti-Russians like Zbignew Brezhinky are behind the plans to continue US/NATO expansion eastward.

15: The media has been censored and muffled in Ukraine.

16: The so called junta "government" in Ukraine is completely illegitimate.

17: There was no real offer for Ukraine to join the EU.

18: Ukrainian officials called Nuremberg trials illegitimate and are guilty of holocaust denial.

19: US guilty of illegal covert aggression in Ukraine and is guilty of crimes which might lead to WWIII.

20:Obama supporting nazis in Ukraine and applauding supporters of nazis and meeting nazisin the White House

21: Catherine Ashton's knowledge of Maidan snipers

22: Exxon, Chevron to get control of Russian gas pipeline and detroy Ukraine by fracking.

23: The plan to subvert Crimea and use Crimean Tartars to destabilize the territory and allow for NATO intervention.

Oceania, the Ministry of Truth and Ukraine

Now that the junta in Ukraine has stopped all Russian media from being able to broadcast into Ukraine and they have effectively terrorized Ukrainian journalists and outlets into silence they have begun broadcasting all-out lies.

According to sources in Ukraine and in Kiev the lies that are being broadcast around the clock are of a complete false nature. They are not manipulating facts or spinning the situation but the media is reporting completely false information.

The Ukrainian people are being bombarded with news that there are Russian forces amassing on the border with Ukraine and there is an imminent invasion about to take place. Ukraine has dug up hundreds of miles of border to make a useless trench supposedly against tanks. Sources along the borders have seen no Russian troops and the only troops that are armed along the borders are the Ukrainian Right Sector nazis. The only tanks or Russian vehicles moving along the borders are farm tractors belonging to farmers whose land has been dug up. All reports of Russian forces amassed at the border have been proven to be faked or staged or like the CNN violent protests in Moscow which turned out to be from Greece, never took place anywhere near Ukraine.

Other reports show a distressed Uzbek woman apparently holding up a new Russian passport with a residence stamp in Magadan. This was a doctored photograph of a woman whose son was killed by terrorists and she had been holding up her dead son's passport.

Another report shows that Russians from the Volgograd region want to leave the Russian Federation and join Ukraine. Ukrainians newscasters say the entire Volgograd region will soon become a part of Ukraine.

More videos show what appear to be Right Sector mercenaries torturing a poor defenseless man, but the Ukrainian news says that it is Russian forces.

In yet another report a girl who refuses to show her face and only speaks Russian claims that she was intimidated into singing the Russian anthem by unspecified Russians and that she is not allowed to speak Ukrainian. Although she is speaking to junta media and to a Ukrainian correspondent she only speaks Russian.

Reports that the Right Sector handed in their arms are also false, the Right Sector handed in plastic guns to the authorities and were allowed to keep their real guns because the authorities agreed those weapons are "legal".

A recent kangaroo process blaming security services with Berkut for the sniper attacks on Maidan was held with no defense for the accused and no evidence or medical analysis was allowed to be presented.

The Ukrainian junta media is literally attempting to brainwash and manipulate the Ukrainian people into supporting their coup government. However many Ukrainians are now buying satellite dishes in order to get some real news.

Globalists against the people

What we have going on in Ukraine is another true manifestation of the New World Order elites of the West, manipulating and attempting to control a population through fear and manipulation in the media and by overthrowing a government. They have done it the US with the bogeyman of terrorism. They have done it all over the Middle East and the rest of the world, and now they are doing it in Ukraine to cover up their crimes of subversion by attempting to convince the world that Russia is some sort of threat.

The architects behind the Ukrainian coup have no interest in the people of Ukraine, nor are they going to support their neo nazi forces for much longer. As soon as the government and the constitution are changed the neo nazi Maidan criminals will be rounded up and disposed of. Yet the western media is completely complicit.

Complicit in bringing about World War III

The western media is effectively promoting through their false anti-Russian war propaganda events that may in fact lead to World War III. Western geopolitical strategists and neo-cons architects no exactly what they are doing in Ukraine. They have continued to provoke and threaten Russia for the last 20 years and now they are meddling in the territory of greater Rus in yet another attempt to get their foot closer and closer to Russian territory.

The war propaganda is not being jumped on by Europeans or Americans. There are few who wish to enter a war or die for neo-nazi thugs in Ukraine, yet the rhetoric continues.

Terrorizing journalists, activists and the public

Ukraine's junta and the conglomeration of neo-nazis and fascists continue to beat, intimidate and disappear journalists, bloggers and anyone else who dares to speak out against their junta.

Many journalists have had to flee Ukraine because they feared for their lives and had been attacked or threatened. The western media ignores these facts as they ignore the house to house intimidation and pillaging by the Right Sector forces.

There was no Russian invasion of Crimea

The biggest and most egregious lie being spread all over the media and in the western world is that Russia somehow invaded or annexed Crimea. I have repeated this many times, the Crimean people held a referendum to REUNITE with Russia. It was a free and democratic decision by the people of Crimea. There was no Russian military activity in Crimea other than some activities to ensure the maintaining of order after a request from the Crimean government and people.

The 1994 Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances

The claim by the West that Russia somehow violated the Budapest Memorandum are also false. The agreement was first of all not ratified by the United States and was not a legal binding agreement with concrete conditions. So even if Russia did violate a condition because the Memorandum was never ratified, it actually means little and carries as much weight as NATO agreements not to expand eastward. Just as the US failed to ratify START II and START III it is hypocritical for them to demonize or blame Russia.

George Soros, USAID and NGOs

Billionaire globalist and Russophobe George Soros and his Open Society Institute andInternational Renaissance Foundation (IRF) as well as the U.S. State Department, USAID (which was kicked out of Russia), the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, the International Republican Institute, Freedom House and the National Endowment for Democracy, are all key players in the current coup in Ukraine and the previous Orange Revolution.

Former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul was a frequent visitor to the offices of the Open Society Institute and as a color revolution specialist who failed to organize a coup in Russia, as he was outed within hours of his arrival, no doubt was working closely with Nuland and Pyatt. According to McFaul: "Most Russia-watchers are diplomats, or specialists on security and arms control. Or Russian culture. I am neither. I can't recite Pushkin by heart.I am a specialist in democracy, anti-dictatorial movements, and revolutions"

We already know what the US means by democracy, neo-nazis terrorizing a country into submission.

The Russian Federation

Although Russia continues to be demonized all of its moves have been strictly defensive in nature, or in defense of Russian citizens or nationals, as they have been since the end of the Cold War.

Russia recently sent all of the Ukrainian military hardware back to Ukraine from Crimea.

Russia has not shut off gas to Ukraine although Ukraine owed billions of dollars and it would be a welcome move by most Russians. However the matter of turning off all gas to and through Ukraine has become a topic that is being discussed at the highest levels.

Due to foreign economic manipulation related to Obama's sanctions Russia has also started the process, as China has done, of implementing its own debit card to compete with Visa and Mastercard.

For the first time Russian officials have also began to consider the possibility of changing the country's oil trade into rubles. This is another move that like the shutting off of gas to Russia, would seriously damage the western Europe and the West. If Russia stops supporting the dollar and changes all oil trade to the ruble, this will surely cause a domino effect that willcompletely destroy the US dollar and economy. All I can say is it is about time someone sanctioned the US and fought fire with fire.

Just a few of the other articles on western media manipulation

There are those who would try to dismiss this article by saying this issue does not exist or that there has been no media campaign of lies launched by the West. Just as other fatcs are ignored or brushed under the carpet by the obedient western corporate media such as the fact that: McFaul, the color revolution specialist, was in Russia to bring about regime change and destabilize the Russian Federation, a missile hit the Pentagon on 9-11, the CIA supports Al-Qaeda all over the Middle East and in Syria and the CIA supported violent neo-nazis extremists to bring about the overthrow of the democratically elected government in Ukraine, omission is one of the favorite tools of the West.

Ukraine: A US Geopolitical Failure of Historic Proportions

8 April, 07:44

Ukraine: A US geopolitical failure of historic proportions

The situation in Ukraine continues to develop in ways that the US architects of the coup, the CIA, neoconservatives like Victoria Nuland, Geoffrey Pyatt, Michael McFaul, Barrack Obama, George Soros and the Zbignew Brezhinsky acolytes running the US foreign policy establishment, obviously had not planned. 

Once again the United States Government through USAID, the CIA and the State Department, has spent billions of US taxpayer's dollars illegally overthrowing yet another government in the latest attempt to make hundreds of billions more for their billionaire corporate masters and expand US hegemony and once again they are on the road to failure.

The latest geopolitical adventure by the US in Ukraine is failing for the same reason they failed in Cuba, Venezuela, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Russia, Iran and elsewhere, namely because the isolated Washington elites living in the fantasy world they apparently live in, know absolutely nothing about the people in the countries they want to takeover.

As neo conservative icon Paul Wolfowitz told US General Wesley Clark soon after 9-11 the Pentagon and NATO are in the business of destroying countries, something they have proven they can do very well since Yugoslavia 15 years ago. Yes the US has proven they can destabilize countries, invade, occupy and bomb into oblivion on the flimsiest of false pretexts and carry out regime change almost at will, but what the idiots in Washington can not do is make their changes stick, win the hearts of the people, establish real lasting hegemony or truly profit in the long term from their meddling. This is not to mention maintaining or even pretending to stand on any moral high ground or actually bringing about a regime change that produces a peaceful, productive, thriving and healthy society. Although of course causing regime change is illegal but international has never stopped the United States of "exceptional" America.

Yes you read that right, I said the Untied States of America is failing in Ukraine. The coup is not sticking and the events will soon take an unexpected turn that should once and for all convince the American populace that they should finally put their neocon geopolitical global "chess players" in padded cells before they kill any more of the world's citizens and drag further generations of American taxpayers into the poor house. I do not want to say too much because I do not want to assist the criminals in Washington, warn them off or give them any ideas, not that I seriously believe arrogant American globalists and geopolitical architects would listen to anyone else other than their own self-aggrandizing echo chambers and I almost hate to say I told you so dear reader, but the truth is I did.

Destabilization, spreading violence, lawlessness, civil war and anarchy

The continued meddling by the CIA and its agents and co-conspirators in Ukraine will only lead to further damage and bloodshed to the people of Ukraine. If this is by design then on this account the US is succeeding in a temporary way. Of course if all-out-war is what the US is really interested in in Ukraine, if they keep pushing their agenda they just may get their wish and the military industrial complex will make billions profiting off war and off the blood sweat and tears of the taxpayers and the citizens of Ukraine, but we won't go there just yet will we?

The initial destabilization, carried out with outdated color revolution tactics obviously designed in the 1990s, was to a large part successful. It did result in a change of regime. However it was probably the most ham handed amateur operation ever carried out by the CIA, State and all of their little sycophantic agents. Sure it cost billions and the US' best regime change minds were all on board, but that does not change the fact that their greedy little psuedo intellectual Russia hating geopolitical chess "masters", at the end of the day, know nothing about the people they are dealing with.

The first failure of the US in Ukraine was their choice of neo-nazis to carry out the coup in order to place their little puppets in power. What idiot in the CIA or the White House came up with that idea? Here was a country devastated by World War II, the real nazis and even worse by the nazi collaborators led by Stepan Bandera, whom the real nazi SS called too brutal, and someone in the George Soros alternative universe actually thought these animals could lead a popular uprising. Unbelievable lack of vision, to say nothing of the fact that these xenophobic, Russian-Jew-everyone-hating nazis were manipulated in order to place puppets of the Jewish persuasion in power.

Of course like the psychopathic-murderous-blood-thirsty-fanatics hiding behind the religion of Islam that the US uses all over the Middle East, the brainless-easily-manipulated Right Sector fanatics were the only filth the US could dig up to do their dirty work in Ukraine. Like Al-Nusra and the so-called "Free Syria Army", the Right Sector and Dmitro Yarosh are simply murderous butchers doing a "job" requiring a scalpel while operating with sledgehammers. But that is the American way, brute force and bashing everything in site with a sledgehammer, which is why these criminals keep robbing US taxpayers of billions and doing nothing but causing bloodshed. "People" like John McCain, who pick these violent lunatics obviously have a love for the most violent of the violent and have no concern who is getting US taxpayer dollars. Nazis, Al-Qaeda, and fanatical paramilitaries of every sort, it does not matter, as long as the job is completed.

As I said I do not want to help the US but the choice of wanted terrorist and murderer Dmitro Yarosh and his bandera nazis was a mistake, now let's look at why.

US Puppets will now liquidate the Right Sector

The illegitimate-US-puppet-president of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov, a traitor to Ukraine and the Ukrainian people and whose rise to power was bought and paid for by Washington and made possible by Right Sector forces and their successful coup, has today announced that he will crack down on the very neo-nazis that put him in power. Just to note Ukraine has no provision in any Constitution for a temporary president and there is no legal basis for his being "president" the only legal president of Ukraine right now continues to be Yanukovich, but that is another story.

We know it was the Right Sector which carried out the coup. We also know the entire Verhovnaya Rada and the new "government" of Ukraine was chosen by the US and the Right Sector and its associates and in no way can any of them be called legitimate (including the US) when it comes to holding office or serving the Ukrainian people. This makes the following statement by Turchynov just another laughable part of the farce that is the US/NATO/EU power grab in Ukraine: "Some citizens tried to stage a provocation near the Verkhovna Rada, either knowingly or unknowingly, and I’m thankful to the MPs who thwarted that provocative act.” Turchynov was speaking of last week's attempted storming of the Parliament by the Right Sector nazis in protest of the junta's killing of one of their co-conspirators. The MPs in question if you recall ran out of an emergency exit in fear.

Turchynov must have the same speech writers be using the same PR firm as Barrack (I-will-sell-Europe-gas-we-don't-have) Obama, because their complete twisting of reality is so obvious and so patently self-serving as to defy all belief that they would even dare say these things.

Ignoring the fact that Arseny Yatsenuk, Vitaly Klitchko (who was egged recently when he attempted to start a still-born campaign to run for president) and himself were all placed in power by the Right Sector and that the entire current Ukrainian Government is a complete farce and was selected by the junta's mob on Maidan Square, Turchynov said the following:“There’s only way to replace parliament, and it’s to vote in an election. There is no other way that might involve forcible pressure because it would push the country into a disaster,"and what is truly amazing he said it with a straight face, proving he must have hired the same Orwellian Ministry of Truth lie trainers that train Obama "we got gas" and Kerry "we just know" .

According to television reports, Turchynov stated that he will now crack down violently on the Right Sector, proving what I have been saying from the beginning, namely: the Right Sector was just a tool and will be thrown away.

Right Sector calling for recruits

According to television reports and televised footage of neo-nazi leader Yarosh, the nazi group is calling for recruits. In his address Yarosh said the Right Sector would take anyone. Of course anyone does not mean Russians, Jews or blacks.

Fascist radical leader Yarosh running for president

Despite claiming he is unemployed and has no reportable income and therefore paid no taxes (CIA black money doesn't count of course) Yarosh the nazi terrorist came up with the $225 thousand dollars to register as a candidate for president. He is running. The first internationally wanted radical neo-nazi psychopath to run for president anywhere in the world.

FSB captures Right Sector terrorists in Russia

Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) reports that it captured 4 groups of Right Sector neo-nazi terrorists in Russia. 25 Ukrainian citizens were arrested and gave detailed televised admissions that they were planning terrorist attacks and provocations all over Russia.

Right Sector indignant over not receiving Russian financial aid

The farce that the US backed Right Sector nazis and the criminals in Kiev are making of Ukraine went up to another level when the illegitimate Minister of Energy of Ukraine, Yury Prodan, selected by the junta on Maidan Square stated that Russia should pay the illegitimate junta government 15 billion dollars in aid promised to President Yanukovich, who had to flee for his life to Russia after Prodan's Right Sector threatened to kill him.

Rights Sector selling their services

According to a Ukrainian website the Right Sector's services are for sale and anyone who needs a rent-a-mob, no matter what the purpose can get them for cheap or in exchange for weapons.

Greystone (Blackwater/XE) and Right Sector nazis activated

Kiev has sent American mercenaries from Greystone and armed Right Sector thugs to the east of Ukraine to deal with growing protests from the civilian population against the junta in Kiev.The Russian Foreign Ministry issued statements on the issue. Apparently the Right Sector did not have enough forces and the CIA was forced to bring in their own people. They will be tasked with fighting a covert war of intimidation against the pro-Russian civilian population.

The fact that 300 US/CIA mercenaries are even in Ukraine is an act of war. If they begin to attack Russian civilians this will be an international war crime which will force Russia to respond. Russia will not allow its citizens to be killed by US mercenaries and nazis, and there is no doubt operations are underway to liquidate the threat.

The US cannot place military forces in Ukraine so it has done what it does best. It pays fringe elements and radicals and imports mercenaries. Russia has been extremely restrained in its protests but this is an unarguable act of war and an attempt to change the political will of the civilian population through fear and force. This is a perfect example of what terrorism is and the US has now become not only a supporter of terrorism but a state sponsor of terrorism.

The US is upset by developments in the east of Ukraine

For the hypocrites in Washington the neo-nazis killing over 85 police officers in Kiev was normal and did not cause a single statement of concern, yet pro-Russian rallies in eastern Ukraine are a problem for the US planners of the nazi coup in Kiev.

The Independent People's Republic of Donetsk

Donetsk has declared independence from Ukraine and has called for a referendum on joining the Russian Federation.

Deputies of the Donetsk regional council on Monday proclaimed state sovereignty of the People’s Republic of Donetsk.

Donetsk has also requested Russian peacekeepers.

The People's Republic of Harkov

Activists in Harkov have declared the creation of the People's Republic of Harkov and are also calling for a referendum on joining Russia.

Right Sector thugs were beaten in clashes and chased out of Harkov.

Lugansk calling for Federal Republic

Lugansk is calling for a referendum making Russia an official language again, making Ukraine unaligned (again) and citizens are calling for an end to the fascist repression of the junta in Kiev and the banderavites.

Odessa calling for end to repression by junta in Kiev

Odessa is also rising up against the US stooges in Kiev.

Conclusion

The US planners, in their irrational anti-Russian campaign are beginning to cross very dangerous lines. They continue to meddle in an area of the world where they are not welcome and are unwanted. They continue to cause a threat to Russian security and threaten the lives and well being of Russian nationals and Ukrainian citizens. The US' continued support of the junta and the armed fascist groups in Ukraine is a direct threat to Russia, Ukrainians and all Slavic people.

The people of Ukraine (not the US puppets and the neo-nazis) do not want the EU or the US. The majority view Russians as brothers and there is no way the US/NATO/EU will ever succeed in dividing the Slavic world and occupying the mother of great Rus that is Ukraine. Russia and Ukraine beat the nazis once and there is no way that in 2014 the US and their nazis will ever win in Ukraine. So far Russia and the Ukrainian people have been patient and tolerating the incursion on their sovereignty by the planners in Washington, this is not a sign a weakness, and when patience runs out the response will be merciless and unstoppable.

Washington has already entered the bear's den and the hibernating bear is beginning to wake up, now by introducing its "secret" army into the East the fool that is Washington has raised its hand to strike the bear in the face. Will they foolishly do so or will the junta puppets now strike out at the Right Sector? Yarosh says he has "work" in the south east of Ukraine and if recent history is any indication the answer is, yes. Would you strike an angry wakening bear in the face deep inside its own den? Of course you wouldn't. Which is why the US geopolitical "chess" players need to be attired in white jackets with long sleeves that tie in the back and placed in nice white little cells with generous padding on the walls.

Every move they make in Ukraine is known, documented, watched and has been exposed. The no covert takeover of Ukraine by the CIA is no longer covert. They have been exposed and the lights are shining in all of their dark corners, yet they continue irrationally on, truly a sign of the lights being on in Washington, but nobody being home.

Plus

The following is a list of countries where the US has organized coup d’états, supported revolutions, overthrown governments, invaded, annexed, supported groups or forces who overthrew or attempted to overthrow governments or outright executed the leaders.

Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Bosnia, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, China, Colombia, Colorado, Congo, Cuba, Detroit, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Germany, Greece, Grenada, Guam, Guatemala, Haiti, Hawaii, Honduras, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Korea, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Macedonia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, Samoa, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, South Dakota, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, Uruguay, USSR, Venezuela, Vietnam, Virgin Islands, Yemen, Yugoslavia and Zaire (Congo).

What they have done and are doing to Native Americans might also be added to the list and as the genocide of the indigenous peoples is the foundation of endemic “American” racism and “exceptionalism” must also be mentioned.

Orwellian US propaganda tool VOA finished in Russia

The US Broadcast Board of Governors, the organization which runs the US Government's media and internet operations, recently received a letter from Dmitry Kiselyov, the head of Rossiya Segodnya, in which he stated that the Voice of America and Radio Liberty would not be allowed to broadcast in Russia any longer after their contract with Russia ran out. 

The move is yet another indicator of the fact that the Russian Government, which has so far been patient as the US/NATO attempt to continue to surround it with missiles and continue to demonize everything Russian, is beginning to take serious measures to protect itself, its people and its allies.

In another example of Russia following the rule of law and honoring its agreements and contracts with all its partners and at a detriment to itself, the US Government's propaganda tool the Voice of America was allowed to continue its subversive sanctimonious self-serving propaganda disguised as democracy and freedom (as long as you are with them) broadcasting into the territory of the Russian Federation until the expiration of its contract. The grudging cooperation of the Russian Government with the main instrument of American subversion has come to an end with one simple sentence from Rossiya Segodnya's outspoken head Dmitry Kiselyov who the US recently added to its useless sanctions list because he dared to tell the truth about Ukraine.

"We are not going to cooperate anymore," said Mr. Kiselyov in a letter dated March 21, 2014 to the US Government's Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) and to be honest nothing more needed to be said.

With headlines from the Orwellian alternate universe that the United States exists in like "Experts Liken Ukraine Crisis to Soviet's Afghanistan Invasion" it can be no wonder that the Russian Government and in fact any truth loving country or citizen of the world might want to ban the voice of the aging recidivist Cold War propaganda machine seeking to stay relevant by creating its own bogeymen and brainwashing the masses to promote knuckle dragging caveman policies of force and subservience.

Russia's refusal to continue to allow the US its beloved platform for incessantly attempting to subvert its government and brainwash its people is a move that must be applauded and one that any country in the world which does not want to face its own EuroMaidan when the Brzezinski brigades in Washington become concerned about their "democracy" must emulate.

It is understandable why the US and its subservient "West" continue to demonize Russia and its leader President Putin (who enjoys an over 92% approval rating something I believe no American president has ever attained) and continuously take issue with the fact that our president worked for the KGB, namely because they keep losing and for some strange reason every single attempt at subverting Russia keeps failing. You see dear reader, having a patriotic incorruptible member of the security services as a president (which is how I would describe President Putin), rather than a corrupt career politician or a "Euro" Maidan-style-bonehead-puppet like Vitali Klitschko or Arseny Yatsenyuk, is Washington's worst nightmare, other than a patriotic socialist of course.

President Putin, as a former KGB intelligence officer, understands perfectly well and perhaps better than any other leader in the world (with all due respect to Fidel Castro who the CIA tried to assassinate over 638 times and the Chinese State who even their staunchest allies know little about) the tools and methods that the United States in particular uses to subvert countries, dispose of leaders, bring about regime change and advance its own hegemony and "interests".

Presidents and leaders of the world please take note: if you value your country's sovereignty and want to advance the interests of it and your people pay attention to what President Putin has been doing and doing well. During his first terms he brought about a complete turnaround to the neocon/Brzezinski plan to divide Russia into 68 autonomous regions, he put an end to the rampant US promoted corruption (Washington's favorite type of country and official is a corrupt one), he stopped the nose-diving population numbers, he stopped the brain drain and the massive runaway escape of capital from Russia and he ended to 1990s near anarchy that was tearing Russia apart after the collapse of the Soviet Union. That was internally.

President Putin's plans for Russia are more in keeping with American Indian thought than anything the West has come up with. The Americans Indians believe we must regulate our moves and actions with the well-being of 7 generations ahead in mind, and from what I have seen (and I may be wrong here perhaps it is more), President Putin's vision is somewhere about 400 years ahead. This is why he is running circles around leaders like Obama who has sold the current and next several dozen generations down river and is ready to completely frack the entire North American continent into an uninhabitable wasteland so that he and his oil company buddies can get a quick fix. President Putin is like a chess player who is playing 250 moves ahead while the rest are struggling with 3 (not even close to the grandmaster level of 12).

Now, closer to the matter at hand lest I digress, with regard to the architects of the collapse of the single greatest power in world history, namely the US Government and all of its instruments of international subversion, who sought to colonize Russia and gain control of it and its resources, President Putin has acted equally effectively and in each and every case followed the rule of law, the Constitution of the Russian Federation and his oath of office. Something so called "constitutional scholars in chief" might make a note of in seeking to emulate conditions for attaining a 92% approval rating by their populaces.

His moves for securing Russia from the out of control imperial hegemon included the law on NGOs (which Ukraine, Egypt, Venezuela, Brazil, Mexico, Yugoslavia and other US regime change targets should have done) and foreign agents, the expulsion of CIA front company USAID which since the 90s had infected everything from pre-natal centers (eugenics?) to the banking sector, the very professional and subtle neutralization of McFaul and his color revolution brigades of church defilers rent-a-mobs and his principled and uncompromising insistence on pursuing international relations based on mutual respect and rule of law.

Of course the American exceptional hegemon is upset by all of these moves, and they should be I suppose, given that they keep failing in their "Democracy is: a McDonald's, free resources for big oil, "open" markets and a US puppet government" drive to rule the world, but things look like they will get worse for the US corporate controlled government and its CIA/NATO "destroying countries are us" over ambitious desperately faltering geopolitical imperial architects. They keep messing with a waking bear and that bear is defending itself.

Now I do not want to help Washington in anyway, but they should take heed. They keep pushing and Russia will push back. There is now talk of changing Russia's oil and energy trade to the ruble (something I think should have been done decades ago), establishing a Russian based international credit card system (goodbye to the Visa/MasterCard global monopoly) and other projects in the works in the fields of stock exchanges, organizations like the BRICS and the Customs Union and more Eurasian integration and cooperation. Russia and the world want to do business and advance their countries and peoples; this is bad for the empire of death.

So the big loser, when the world begins trading its oil in something other than the dollar and the whole worthless paper currency house of cards comes crashing down will be the United States of America, which really produces nothing to offer the world except weapons, some clever computer stuff that they use to spy on you and death and destruction.

The US is failing, in Russia, Ukraine, Syria and worldwide. And the world is beginning to wake up to the fact that the US is a rogue superpower, trampling on international law worldwide, engaged in an attempt at global domination through force and subversion and has only its own quick-fix-interests in mind.

No matter the current alternative universe Orwellian Ministry of Truth operations of the subservient corporate controlled media, which have attempted to paint the US billion dollar regime change/resource grab/NATO expansion/destruction of a state as somehow being Russia's fault. The US will fail because there is one weapon that there is no way they can win against and at the end of the day that weapon will win. That weapon is the truth.

Another reason that the US and its regime change subversion operation failed in Russia is that Russians are too smart to fall for rent-a-mobs running in the streets screaming for regime change while offering no reasonable alternative. Russians are too smart to fall for infantile American propaganda, which is the main reason US elites and the government make sure their educational system continues to be one of the worst in the world and higher education is only available to their own kind.

Unfortunately the average American is kept dumbed-down focused on non-issues like abortion and two men engaged in grotesque relations as marriage and terrorized and perplexed by never ending laws and ever more oppression by their own security state which has enslaved them. So with that in mind it is logical and natural that the US should support the illegitimate government in Ukraine which has shut down the media, freedom of expression and is ruling by brute force and fear. Yes dear reader, if you are hearing this for the first time the US/NATO/EU funded, trained and employed violent neo-Nazi criminal thugs, killers, insurrectionists and terrorists to overthrow the democratically elected government of Ukraine so they can expand their territory and take what they want. That is the truth.

Again I have digressed from the matter at hand but the background is necessary. With all of that the Voice of America broadcasts ridiculous propaganda like the previous Ukraine/Afghanistan "Russia is to blame" comparison piece I mentioned.

On second thought it is pretty good comparison and as a journalist for the Voice of Russia I would love to hand the comparison back to the Voice of America. You might even say it is an "excellent" comparison because: as in Afghanistan where the US "created" Al-Qaeda and backed murderous Islamic lunatics to overthrow the socialist government, the US "created" the Right Sector and backed murderous Nazi lunatics to overthrow the democratic government; also Russia was asked to intervene in Afghanistan and helped the Afghan people just as Russia was asked to intervene (no invasion) in Crimea and helped the Crimean people; another similarity is that the fact that the war against the socialist government in Afghanistan was a CIA operation just as in Ukraine, for which Russia is being demonized by a concerted media effort, is also a CIA "op".

Back to the Spam of America, Dmitry Kiselyov who was added to what I call "the honorary sanctions list" said the issue with Voice of America and Radio Liberty has nothing to do with freedom of speech but is due to the fact that the US propaganda tools have nothing original to say and they sound like they broadcast from another world, or at least from a world that doesn't exist anymore.

He is absolutely right and once again the US has stepped on the same rake for the umpteenth time. They tried to influence and pressure Russia with "alternative universe propaganda" and sanctions and began trying to rewrite history to a well-informed people they know nothing about, as they always do, and they have had their lunch handed right back to them. Banning the Broadcast Board of Governors (BBG) and their fake news outlets from Russia was something that should have been done ages ago in my opinion.

The BBG should not worry though, last July they were allowed to broadcast their Ministry of Truth vitriol disguised as "democracy radio" into the United States after being previously banned. Useful tool I imagine for Obama's brainwashing of the American populace as they are being trampled upon and oppressed.

I can say what I want about the BBG and their "product" and will not, unlike the Voice of America, try to convince you I am "fair and balanced", I work for the Voice of Russia and love Russia and President Putin, so I have a certain pro Russia bias. The difference is I am not hiding that fact and you dear reader can therefore adjust appropriately. I will say that we at the Voice of Russia are not trying to change reality unlike the Voice of America, and as for myself I am always trying to inform my readers of the truth.

Perhaps it is better if I quote an American who had the Voice of America banned in America. In the 1970s James William Fulbright moved to restrict the Voice of America saying they "should be given the opportunity to take their rightful place in the graveyard of Cold War relics."

Fulbright's amendment was bolstered in 1985 by Nebraska Senator Edward Zorinsky, who argued that such "propaganda" should be kept out of America as to distinguish the U.S. "from the Soviet Union where domestic propaganda is a principal government activity."

So dear reader, I thank you if you have stayed with me this far, if the US itself banned the Voice of America from being broadcast in America and upon reinstatement was protesting, why should Russia and your country allow and assist its most recalcitrant "partner" from attempting to poison the minds of its people.

And one more little final note and then you can go back to your regularly scheduled surfing. I would like to leave you with these facts for thought: someone in collusion with the United States neocon/coup government of George Bush killed 2,999 civilians and 9-11-01 and no believable explanation has yet to be given; the US continues to maintain the illegal torture prison at Guantanamo where it is holding hundreds of innocent men in violation of every conceivable international law and convention; in the last 15 years the US/NATO illegally invaded and committed acts of aggressive war against Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya (these are crimes against humanity and peace); the US/NSA/FVEY is spying on the entire planet and all governments and even allied officials; every Tuesday the president of the United States decides on a list of people to extra-judicially murder without trial or charges; the US is engaged in a war against journalists and whistleblowers; the US was completely responsible for the violent coup in Ukraine (a democratic European country) and the US/NATO are admittedly expanding worldwide and in the business of destroying countries. Do you really want such "people" who pretend to be fair, balanced, friendly and "democratic" manipulating your mind? I would think not.

US Client States Lock Step on Fascist Coup in Ukraine: Putin Forced to Seek Resolution

US client states lock step on fascist coup in Ukraine: Putin forced to seek resolution

The process of reaching a peaceful political resolution to the western backed coup in Ukraine which will be of benefit to all of the people of Ukraine as the continuing crisis continues to deepen is being exacerbated by the continuous disgraceful and shameful coverage in the western media and continues to add to the threat of the country spiraling into complete lawlessness and anarchy. Russian President Vladimir Putin has written a letter to 18 European leaders detailing Russia's position and steps to a diplomatic resolution to the US instigated crisis but will Europe listen? Let's hope for cooler heads.

Western Media War Propaganda

The utter shamefulness of western media coverage in failing to report the facts in Ukraine and their continued demonization of Russia and President Vladimir Putin is disgraceful to watch as media outlets across the spectrum try to outdo each other in their sycophantic attempts at appeasing Washington and their almost mindless lock step promotion of what can only be described as war propaganda.

Recently the head of WikiLeaks Kristinn Hrafnsson put the coverage of the Ukraine crisis in this way: "when the barrels of guns are lifted, truth vanishes" and that describes almost perfectly what has happened. Be those guns the real guns of NATO, the secret guns that make up the arsenal of the CIA, the diplomatic guns of the US State Department, the economic guns of the US Federal Reserve, the IMF and the World Bank or the guns of the entire US corporate media USAID/NGO societal manipulation apparatus, it is not important the first casualty when the US decides to comes after you is truth.

Hrafnsson knows this as does anyone who has bravely stood up to the criminal cabal in that has been in power in the US for decades and has run the US Government with an iron grip since the events of 9-11. Truth is not important to the brutal and godless creatures in Washington and those in power pulling the strings.

Was truth important for the US machine when it came to Bradley Manning? Or was the truth an issue of importance to: the hundreds of innocent men being held in the illegal US torture dungeon at Guantanamo; the millions killed in illegal US wars in IraqAfghanistanLibya and Syria (including 426 children who were murdered to bring about an invasion pretext), Edward SnowdenVictor BoutConstantin YaroshenkoAnonymous hactivistsJeremy Hammond;Aaron Swartz, all of the lawyers defending whistelblowers, the Palestinians, now the Jews, Trayvon Martin and all of the other brave and innocent people who have suffered or had their very lives taken away at the hands of the imperial tyrannical US murder machine.

The Facts About the New Fourth Reich

You do reader are being lied to and manipulated and if you are complicit, even passively so, you may be complicit in bringing about World War III because this has become a matter of real debate even by the US right who will be more than happy to destroy the world because the chicken hawks and the American populace believe in their Prompt Global Strike systemand that they will survive a nuclear war. You may call it a conspiracy theory but the elites in Washington are ready, they have been preparing to call up martial law, hold the US populace in concentration camps like the FEMA camps in Alaska that can hold millions, and then hide their filthy elite carcasses in bunkers like the one under Denver international airport.

A conspiracy theory you say? All of the facts point to the existence of a new Fourth Reich yet the packaging is intentionally deceptive. Even the black president and the pro Israel neo-cons are all part of the design. Don't believe me? Look at the facts dear reader. And you can start with the true nature of the CIA and the fact that 400,000 nazi scientists and planners were given refuge in the United States of America after World War II and allowed to run rampant in the CIA and behind the scenes. MKULTRA is a good place to start, nazi-like eugenics programs in Puerto Rico is another and the neocon coup and the Project for a New American Century is another. Finally the home of the US elite navy seals is an open testament to the nazi reich.

The Facts About Ukraine

Those in the western media and the few brave journalists daring to question the official Washington line on the situation in Ukraine continue to say the situation is complicated, of course it appears that way due to all of the obfuscation by the US apparatus, but I argue that it is quite simple. The results and the Chaos Theory type waves resulting from the initial event are multi-layered and of the greatest complexity I agree, but again the core event is quite simple.

The US/CIA/NATO/EU staged, organized, funded and brought about a regime change operation in Ukraine using nazi Brownshirt thugs. That is the crux and the core truth in Ukraine and everything else can be taken from there.

The Brownshirts were used in the illegal coup d'état in order to bring a triumvirate of US puppets to power and that has been done to a point. I say to a point because no matter how much the US machine calls them the leaders or the government legitimate, they are not. Those in power in Kiev are a junta. They are illegitimate and even though in some cases Russia has been forced to deal with these puppets sans real officials to negotiate with, they continue to be an abomination and an affront to the word democracy. Even the international bankers and the heads of the financial bodies that could bailout Ukraine know these coup puppets are fly by night thugs with only their own interests in mind hence the lack of real financial aid to Ukraine.

After the coup in Ukraine the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation were called into a state of high alert because the new regime in Kiev and the bellicose rhetoric of US/NATO posed a direct and present threat to the Russian Federation and the Russian people. The Russian Government and the Russian people unanimously gave the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin the full authority to use force if he deemed it necessary. He did not.

There was no invasion of Ukraine or Crimea. There were Russian troops in Crimea as part of the Black Sea Fleet who had been in the territory for over 2 decades under international legally binding agreements and they were placed on a level of alert but they were never activated against the population of Crimea or Ukraine and merely secured Russian facilities and maintained order and security around strategic locations. Even the reports in the West that the Russian army is amassed along the Ukrainian border ready to move into Ukraine and further into Europe (let alone that there are Russian forces in Ukraine) are false and utterly ridiculous.

The people of Crimea and the government of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, of their own free will fulfilling a wish that has existed for decades, first declared independence from Ukraine and then in a democratic referendum decided to rejoin (yes dear reader REJOIN) the Russian Federation.

Protests now taking place all over Ukraine, and in particular Eastern Ukraine are not being funded or provoked in anyway by Russia. The popular protests are in response to the nazi Brownshirts who have taken power in Kiev. Yes dear reader, nazis are in power again in Europe, thanks to the US/NATO/EU and a black president who is signing off and leading everything. Yes Obama has brought nazi to power in Europe, and we thought a black president would bring us all social justice, rule of law and true democracy.

And finally, US strategy in Ukraine will fail for one reason. Ukraine is the mother of Rus and the people of Ukraine do not want Bandera nazis in power. The only way that US strategy will work is if they commit genocide on the pro-Russian population (something called for by the Right Sector and even Yulia Timoshenko).

Those are the key facts in Ukraine and almost everything they are presenting to you is a either an outright lie or war propaganda. Are you ready to die for neo-nazis in Ukraine dear western reader if your leaders continue to push for war against Russia? Is the US ready to sacrifice stability and prosperity in Europe and the lives of millions of Europeans to bring about its geopolitical objectives in Ukraine and Eastern Europe? Yes they are. Sitting across the pond they believe they are impervious to attack. Sitting disconnected in their expensive suburban mansions they believe what they unleash will never come home to bite them in the posterior. After all they have the US populace enslaved and on lock down and the security state is all powerful. Or so they think. Now you know the US supports nazis. Doesn't that bother anyone? It bothers me.

President Putin's Constructive Approach

Against this backdrop of a full frontal subversive attack on Russia and Eastern Europe by the US/NATO/CIA we have President Vladimir Putin trying to bring about a peaceful resolution to the situation and deal with the Machiavellian assault being waged directly against Russia and the world.

Russia's principled, peaceful and diplomatic approach in Syria and the rest of the world is being echoed in and around Ukraine and even though he has the full authority, the moral right and the upper hand to carry out a western style shock and awe cowboy military intervention in Ukraine to protect a country full of Russians and Russian speakers, President Putin does not.

On April 10th President Putin wrote a letter to 18 European leaders whose countries are dependent on Russian natural gas (one which was intercepted by the NSA/FVEY and even immediately responded to by the US State Department).

In the letter (the full text which is available on the Kremlin website) President Putin: points to the worsening economic situation in Ukraine; reiterates the fact that Ukraine's main trading partners are Russia and EU countries; underlines that all Russian attempts which include the participation of Ukraine are being sidelined by the West; derides western attempts to blame Russia for Ukraine's economic crisis amid calls to lower gas prices which were already at ridiculously low levels; lists the huge discounts that Ukraine has been receiving and the fact that Russia has maintained its contractual obligations under gas agreements from day one; reiterates that Russia has subsidized the government and economy of Ukraine for decades including the December 2013 loan of 3 billion US dollars and that Ukraine's real gas debt to Russia is now at $35.4 billion; blasts the EU for not offering Ukraine real support while using it as "... a source of raw foodstuffs, metal and mineral resources, and at the same time, as a market for selling its highly-processed ready-made commodities (machine engineering and chemicals), thereby creating a deficit";and the fact even though Ukraine continued to enjoy huge gas discounts in March they refuse to pay a single dime. All of these issues and the recent statements by "officials" in Kiev that they have no intention to pay Russia for gas was recently described by the president as intolerable.

Further President Putin details some of the measures that Russia will be forced to take as continuously supplying a recalcitrant Ukraine with billions of dollars of free gas is a condition that cannot go on much longer and that these conditions will affect the delivery of gas to Europe as there exists the very real threat that Ukraine (as it has done in the past) will begin siphoning off gas that is in transit through the Ukrainian section of the gas pipeline.

Finally the President very diplomatically underlines the fact that Russia's European partners have: "... unilaterally withdrawn from the concerted efforts to resolve the Ukrainian crisis, and even from holding consultations with the Russian side, leaves Russia no alternative",yet Russia is: "... prepared to participate in the effort to stabilize and restore Ukraine’s economy. However, not in a unilateral way, but on equal conditions with our European partner."

European Reaction: German Chancellor Angela Merkel

One of Russia's key western partners and perhaps the only leader who can really bring about a peaceful resolution to the crisis in Ukraine is German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has been perhaps the staunchest ally of Russia in the West and is in an unenviable position which may be described as "a bridge between East and West". Ms. Merkel's diplomacy while attempting to deal with the US (which spies on her private communications) and continues to use Germany as another client state and maintaining normal and mutually beneficial business and economic relations with Russia are to be lauded. However there is much more that she could do and this would in no way hurt her political standing with the German populace which has grown weary of the US propaganda campaign against Russia.

Chancellor Angela Merkel undoubtedly knows the truth about the coup in Ukraine and surely the German connections of US puppet Vitaly Klitschko and in the end may decide to pursue a path that is in the best interests of German and European consumers and the maintaining of mutually beneficial business and trade relations.

In reality the US is asking Germany and Europe to cut off their own noses and close their eyes in order to support its illegal regime change operation in Ukraine. So far Europe has been subservient, but at the end of the day money talks and bullpucky walks, and perhaps on Monday when the EU leaders meet to discuss President Putin's letter Europe may finally stand up and say no to the American hegemon across the pond, but let's not hold our breath.

It is a good thing that Russia has such a cool-headed, diplomatic and wise leader. I for my part would have just shut off the gas long ago.

Finally

The irrational western media response and the continued failure of the media to fairly report on the western backed coup of Ukraine are another sign that the American people are living under tyranny. Attacks on journalists (including myself) for attempting to report the truth on the situation in Ukraine, the fact that the US Government is officially supporting and calling legitimate a nazi coup government and has brought fascists into power again in Europe and the fact that the US is provoking a scenario that may lead to World War III all show the true face of who is in power in Washington.

As a former US citizen whose citizenship was stripped for supporting Russia and protesting US illegality I challenge all my American readers to stand up and end the reign of illegality. I also challenge everyone who has taken an oath to protect the US Constitution to finally stand up and abide by that oath. Your government has been taken over and is no longer a representative of the American people or in any way abiding by the Constitution and they are ready to send you all off to die in another war to enrich the banksters. You attempted to rise with the Occupy Movement but that is not enough, given the lack of will or ability to cut off their free access to your tax dollars there may soon come a time when you will be forced to take up arms and unfortunately that time is coming soon. God help us all.

Finally I leave you with a plea to all stand up for peace and justice and with the words of Mario Savio: "There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part! You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels…upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!"

President Putin Reacts as Kiev Junta Threatens Russian Lives and Squashes Dissent

16 April, 08:18

President Putin reacts as Kiev junta threatens Russian lives and squashes dissent

The mob beatings, kidnappings and public humiliation of candidates for president in Ukraine are just the latest outrages being carried out by the western backed and coup installed neo nazi junta in Ukraine. The complete affront to all accepted civilized democratic principles is just another in a long line of horrific acts that have been carried out by the western backed neo nazi Right Sector thugs that the US brought to power in Ukraine. The US is directly responsible for causing the demon of fascism to once raise its head in Europe, yet Europe and the international community are for the most part silent and are instead engaged in a frenzied irrational campaign to demonize Russia.

As the Ukrainian army moves against its own civilian population the West is for the most part silent or in criminal collusion with the nazi junta in Kiev. Nowhere are there cries of outrage against the unprecedented moves by the illegitimate bandera nazi government to violently quash popular protests against their illegal reign. The banderavites (note: the followers of bandera were called extreme by the Nazi SS during World War) are continuing their thuggish Brownshirt reign of terror and now literally beating their opponents in an attempt to prevent all opposition to their illegal reign.

Candidates Beaten

On Tuesday two candidates for the office of president of Ukraine, were attacked and beaten by violent neo nazi mobs and the junta authorities which are suspected of ordering the attacks, as well as the West, are again silent. Oleg Tsaryov, a pro-federalization supporter, was brutally beaten by a group of banderavites in Kiev as he arrived to take part in the "Svoboda Slova" ("Freedom of Speech") talk show. He is now in critical condition. Unidentified attackers also blocked and damaged the vehicle of another presidential candidate, Mikhail Dobkin, who was filmed being hit by a barrage flour and green antiseptic solution. There were also unconfirmed television reports that Dobkin was kidnapped and taken to an undisclosed location.

The candidates were attempting to take part in the political process of their election campaigns and engage in televised debates, which is a normal healthy democratic process, and the violent way in which they were denied their rights as candidates forces one to recall the way the same yet more "civilized" tactic was used against Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein and vice-presidential candidate Cheri Honkala as they attempted to enter the grounds of the presidential debate site at Hofstra University in New York in October of 2012.

Army Deployed

Under the pretext of an "anti-terrorist operation" Oleksander Turchinov, the Right Sector's Maidan "president" added to his long list of crimes against the Ukrainian people by ordering the Ukrainian army to deploy against civilian demonstrators in the south eastern part of Ukraine. According to television reports he authorized the army to fire on unarmed protestors.

Turchinov himself placed in power by a violent Right Sector coup that forced the current legitimate president of Ukraine to flee the country in order to protect his life, is now attempting through the use of force to consolidate his power, stifle dissent and neutralize any possible opponents. Sitting in his echo chamber in the Verhovnaya Rada, where all dissenters are also beaten, Turchinov makes a mockery of the office of president as he attempts to subjugate the people and force the will of his illegitimate coalition on the populace of Ukraine.

His use of the term "anti-terrorist" is outrageous as he is describing civilian protestors and some who have taken over local government building. His own rise to power came as his Right Sector stormed and occupied the houses of government in Kiev as they continue to do. Turchinov, who resembles an aging skin head both in appearance and in the low brow level of his acidic rhetoric is attempting to maintain and consolidate his faltering grip on power and has placed his Right Sector nazi extremists in positions of power in the interior ministry, the judiciary, the economic bodies, the security services and the armed forces.

Yulia Timoshenko recently revealed the real thinking about what the Ukrainian junta wants to do with the 8 million Russians in Ukraine when she said they should all be killed and now we know how the Right Sector is planning to deal with the up to 96% of the Ukrainian population that does not want them in power. Turchinov's mobilization of the army of Ukraine against the population of the south east which is mainly composed of ethnic Russians and supporters of federalization is an almost unheard of act in modern times and is illegal under international law and the Ukrainian Constitution. This is why President of Ukraine Yanukovich never called for the Berkut Forces in Ukraine to take up arms, even in their own defense as they were being slaughtered by Right Sector killers. The absolute brazen impunity with which the Right Sector and Turchinov are operating can only be attested to the fact that they enjoy the full support of the CIA and Obama's government.

This mockery to all civilization was shortly to be outdone by the goon Turchinov himself when he had the unmitigated audacity to invite the United Nations and Ban Ki-Moon to take part in his illegal quashing of dissent. This outrageous affront and mockery of the United Nations, like the previous "official" statement by the junta's nazi UN representative which attempted to deny the legitimacy of the Nuremberg Trials once again shows the absolute illegality and illegitimacy of the Kiev junta yet the western media is silent or marching lock step and justifying the crimes being carried out by the Right Sector by demonizing the civilians as being pro-Russian "radicals". Some may be pro-Russian but being pro-Russian does not make you a terrorist, neither does calling for federalization which is the only way that Ukraine is going to remain intact.

The Right Sector's military solution to political dissent, which now includes reports of casualties among the unarmed civilian population is an outrage of historic proportions and must not be allowed to stand or be supported, even under the guise of Russophobia.

President Putin

President Putin is once again faced with a situation that is threatening the lives of ethnic Russians and is a direct threat to the security of the Russian Federation and is continuing to attempt to solve the crisis through the use of diplomacy and dialogue. A true statesman his behavior is in stark contrast to the "shock and awe" of Washington and the thuggish violence of the little US puppets in Kiev.

The Kremlin website reports that President Putin called UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon:"The conversation addressed the crisis in Ukraine, which has grown significantly worse due to the use of force initiated by the Kiev authorities in the southeast of the country."

"In particular, Mr. Putin stressed that the Russian side expects the United Nations and the international community to clearly condemn these anti-constitutional actions."

On Tuesday President Putin also spoke with German Chancellor Angela Merkel: "Mr. Putin and Ms Merkel exchanged views on the anti-constitutional course taken by the current authorities in Kiev to forcefully suppress protests in the southeast regions of Ukraine. The President of Russia noted that the sharp escalation of the conflict essentially puts the nation on the brink of civil war."

"The leaders of Russia and Germany stressed the vital importance of the four-party (Russia, EU, US, Ukraine) talks scheduled for April 17, 2014. Hope was expressed that the meeting in Geneva would send a clear signal to help take the situation in a peaceful direction."

"The President of Russia also pointed out the importance of resolving issues in stabilizing Ukraine’s economy and ensuring supplies and transit of Russian natural gas to Europe, which were raised in his message to the leaders of several European nations on April 10, 2014."

Russian Foreign Ministry

The Russian Foreign Ministry has also released several statements regarding the situation in Ukraine and has slammed the European Union for ignoring the beating of presidential candidates in Ukraine. "The European Union is completely ignoring the facts that Ukrainian presidential candidates were beaten and intimidated, which looks cynical, What proof do our European partners need in order to understand the degree of the impact from right wing extremists and first of all from Right Sector?"

Russian Public Chamber

The Russian Public Chamber also issued a statement over the latest illegal moves by the junta in Kiev and is preparing formal complaints to international bodies"Russia’s Public Chamber is outraged by the massive violations of human rights in Ukraine and is preparing complaints to the European Court of Human Rights", a member of Russian Public Chamber Georgij Fedorov said.

"A lot of people have complained of human rights violations in Ukraine, such as a clamp down on freedom of speech, cases of unjustified dismissal, forced participation in public events, and assaults. Approximately every 20th appeal contained similar information," he said.

United Nations

The United Nations in Ukraine has admitted what I have been saying from the start, namely that there is a massive disinformation campaign be waged by the western media. Yet the UN continues to act as the glue that Victoria Nuland had said they would be and is following the US narrative including the denial that that the Maidan snipers were part of the Right Sector. The UN report also blames the unarmed Berkut Forces who were being burned alive, beaten to death with cement filled steel pipes and shot to death by snipers for an escalation to the conflict.

The UN unfortunately makes no mention of the nazi tactics of the Right Sector, nor do they publicize the very public Nuremberg Trial denial of the Right Sector junta representative in March.

“It is critical for the Government to prioritise respect for diversity, inclusivity and equal participation of all – including minorities – in political life,” said UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay.

“Facts on the ground need to be established to help reduce the risk of radically different narratives being exploited for political ends. People need a reliable point of view to counter what has been widespread misinformation and also speech that aims to incite hatred on national, religious or racial grounds,” she added.

Ineffective and criminally compliant

US Mercenaries

More than 300 Greystone mercenaries are in Ukraine and are assisting the neo-nazi Right Sector in attempting to make sure the illegal US backed $5 billion puppet regime stay in power. Proving that the US is going to any measurer whatsoever and engaged in an extremely illegal and active covert operation to match its overt efforts to cement its illegal regime change operation in Ukraine the Director of CIA John Brennan flew to Ukraine to meet with his agents in Kiev underlining the porous communications infrastructure the CIA has in the country and apparently to order the crack down on "pro-Russian" demonstrators.

"With the illegal, coup d'etat installed government in Kiev about to engage in some very serious skull cracking to put down a mounting rebellion in Eastern Ukraine there have been some accounts that hired guns from corporate mercenary firms are augmenting the local paramilitary police forces. With the pushback against the US backed "Yats" regime and it's neo-Nazi shock troops it is imperative that a real version of the Euromaiden "revolution" not be allowed to take root to oust the stooges of the corporate global finance mafia."

and

"White House spokesman Jay Carney confirmed that CIA Director John Brennan visited Ukrainian capital Kiev over the weekend and met with high-ranked Ukrainian officials.

Previously, deposed Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich accused Brennan of ordering a crackdown on pro-Russian activists in the east of the country."

CIA Front USAID

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) which is a front for the CIAand was expelled from the Russian Federation has an extremely long and sordid history in destabilizing governments, undermining democracy and a decades-long campaign of attempting to destabilize Russia and manipulate public opinion in line with their almost psychotic Russophobia and irrational relentless drive to demonize Russia: "The situation in Ukraine, however, is not entirely as the corporate media would have us believe. Wayne Madsen provides a look at the effort by the United States to destabilize not only Ukraine, but Russia. The crisis in the Ukraine provides an additional headache for Russia as it deals with terrorist threats on the eve of its hosting the Winter Olympics in Sochi."

The Ministry of Truth

Having thrown all journalistic ethics aside in an orgy of Russophobic demonization and denial of reality the western media continues to march lock step with the organizers and supporters of the CIA/NATO/EU/USAID/Soros coup d'état in Kiev and the western backed Right Sector. Were the army of any country activated and allowed to open fire on unarmed civilians the reactions would be outrage but the majority of the western media is justifying the actions of the fascists in Ukraine by throwing out the Russia card.

Unarmed peaceful demonstrators in eastern Ukraine who are calling for a legal democratic Ukrainian Government and the federalization of Ukraine because that is the only way that Ukraine will continue to exist as a state and the only way their voices can be heard are being demonized as: "pro-Russia separatistspro-Russian forces; pro-Russian mob; locals holding Russian flags (OMG!!!); (the Guardian counters the 300 Blackwater mercenaries inforamation beautifully with this: 300 Russian forces had infiltrated neighbouring Luhansk); pro-Russian militants; Cossacks – paramilitary fighters; radical pro-Russia presidential candidate; pro-Russia separatist rebellions; Born in the USSR (OMG!!!); Russian sympathizers;

While the Right Sector of neo-nazi thugs and fascist extremists and the illegitimate thugs pretending to be a government are made out to be "normal": "military forces; anti-terrorist operation President Oleksandr TurchynovUkraine’s actions against pro-Russian militiamen in the country’s eastern region are justifiedangry crowdscounter offensive; troops repeatedly opened fire; “Soon there will be no terrorists left in Donetsk or any other region,” Turchynov vowed; and on and on and on....

Finally Ban the US from Ukraine

It is a fact, no matter how much of an inconvenient truth it may be, that the United States of America under President Barrack Hussein Obama and the Zbignew Brzhinsky foreign policy establishment orchestrated an illegal regime change operation in Ukraine and destabilized the country to force the population to accept NATO, the conditions of an EU integration agreement, achieve corporate banking ends and attempt to reduce Russian influence in the region. The US used the worst nazi trash to bring about their operation and now the population is protesting and war has been declared on the general populace and anyone who dares to dissent.

Being as the United States of America and its agents and surrogates carried out an illegal regime change operation in Ukraine and are directly responsible for the death anddestabilization in Ukraine, it would be perfectly reasonable to bar the US from any participation in any activities regarding Ukraine, be they economic, political, military or even handing outdoughnuts on Maidan. In a perfect world the US, since they are responsible for destabilizing the country and for the deaths that have occurred, would be subject to paying restitution for the results of their geopolitical adventure. But of course no one is calling for these things.

Can you imagine if a violent homicidal gang robbed a house, raped all the people in it, stole everything they could carry off and then burned it down and then once they were identified were asked to join in the investigation? That is exactly what is happening in Ukraine.

Opinion: Putin's Q&A Session was Brilliant, Sincere, Warm and Compassionate

17 April, 19:49

Opinion: Putin's Q&A session was brilliant, sincere, warm and compassionate

The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin conducted his yearly question and answer session with the public and citizens of Russia, this time spending approximately three hours and fifty minutes answering a wide range of questions in an impressive manner never once faltering or at a loss and citing facts, figures and details on everything from assisting a disabled man to obtain a home to the aggressive expansion of NATO to the East. This year the Kremlin added a the possibility of sending in video for those who wanted to ask the president questions, as well as text messages, e-mails, regular post, phone calls and submissions through the Internet.

Those calling up army in Kiev have lost it - President Putin

President Putin once again showed his keen and brilliant mind and his amazing ability to remember what to most of us would be minutiae citing, figures, quotes, dates, historical events and the like with ease. But what was more impressive and what no doubt makes him one of the most popular leaders in history and to the Russian people is his genuine compassion, sincerity the obvious fact that he has vision.

Ukraine

The continuing unrest in Ukraine was the most pressing issue for most of those who contacted the president, including those in the audience, and the president minced no words when expressing his position and thoughts on the issues surrounding the crisis.

Illegitimate

With regard to the junta in Kiev President Putin's assessment remains unchanged and he called those occupying positions of power after the armed coup d'état illegitimate. Although he did say that the Russian Government was still in contact, on the ministerial level, which such junta figures as Turchinov and Yatsenyuk.

Yanukovich and Elections

Although President Putin was critical of President Yanukovych's decision to leave Ukraine the President underlined the fact that Yanukovych is still the legitimate and legal president of Ukraine under the Ukrainian Constitution as he had not been impeached, stepped down or passed away.

Given the fact that Ukraine, in legal and constitutional terms, still has an acting president there can be no way that without changes to the Ukrainian Constitution that any rushed elections scheduled to be held in the country can yield results that can be called legitimate.

The president blasted the actions of the Right Sector "activists", and those occupying the Verkhovna Rada who are in collusion with them, for the attacks on those running for the office of President of Ukraine and underlined that under such conditions there can in no way be normal elections.

Mobilization of the Army

Commenting on the fact that the coup forces had mobilized the army against civilians in the east of Ukraine, President Putin became animated when recounting details about the mobilization of fighter jets, heavy artillery, tanks and heavily armed forces brandishing artillery and even flamethrowers, by repeatedly saying that those behind such moves had obviously gone off the reservation and had literally "lost it".

He underlined the utter hypocrisy of the calls by the neo-nazi coup for the civilian population to disarm by questioning why they did not ask the neo-nazi Right Sector insurrectionists to disarm as well.

Authorization to Use Force

President Putin reminded the audience that he still had the full authorization to deploy Russian forces in Ukraine but stated that he hoped that things would never come to that.

Gas

With regard to Julia Timoshenko President Putin recalled her statements to kill 8 million Russians in Ukraine with an atomic weapon and said he had had a normal business-like relationship with her and that she must have stated such things in a spate of emotion.

The president underlined the danger to gas deliveries to Europe through Ukraine and re-iterated the government's position with regard to gas prices delivers and the like to Ukraine, underlining the fact that Russia had supported Ukraine to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars during the last several decades.

Nations

The president underlined the shared history and brotherly relations between Ukraine and sympathized with the Ukrainian people. He gave a historical backdrop to the Right Sector and the nationalist fervor sweeping western Ukraine by detailing how western Ukraine had historically been belonged to various different countries and empires which caused an inherent schism in the minds of the people.

NATO

Popular Russian journalist and television personality and the Director General of the Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency Dmitry Kiselyov asked President Putin about the expansion of NATO and the threat to Russia's national security that NATO poses. Mr. Kiselyov underlined the fact that NATO is attempting to expand into Ukraine which for many Russians is an issue that it becoming a real and present danger and one which more and more people are worried about.

Mr. Kiselyov dramatized the actions of Russia being surrounded by NATO and its military elements by telling the president that he felt like there were metaphorical hands attempting to choke him as NATO surrounded Russia with its missiles.

President Putin stated that NATO's so called Anti-Ballistic Missile Defense System (ABM) was nothing but part of a US first strike capability and underlined the fact that NATO had repeatedly refused to sign any sort of document stating that these weapons were not being deployed against Russia. He underlined NATO's refusal to cooperate with Russia on missile defense and stated that NATO's push into the Black Sea was inexcusable and that NATO's move into Ukraine was akin to Russia being pushed out of the region.

President Putin guaranteed that the Russian people should not be afraid and that Russia was capable and would do what it has to in order to guarantee the safety of Russia and its people.

Snowden

President Putin answered a question from the second American to be given asylum in Russia (me being the first), Edward Snowden, by starting out by saying he was a spy for America and as a former intelligence officer himself would answer him in professional terms. Snowden asked the president if Russia was conducting mass surveillance on the Russian people to which President Putin quite frankly answered that the Russian security services were subject to strict legal controls and could only conduct such surveillance on individuals and with a warrant.

Social and Other Issues

When asked by a man from an area that had been devastated by recent flooding but was being rebuilt if the president could order roads built to the isolated village, the man who said he had a car but complained that there were no roads, evoked a rare show of humor for President Putin who responded that the question must be some sort of provocation.

President Putin spent part of the session choosing questions by himself and answered several questions from small children, pensioners and others. His answers were brilliant, sincere, warm and compassionate and to be honest it was remarkable to watch the most influential president on our planet speak so unpretentiously, compassionately and at the same time seriously and with genuine concern, to common people from all across the spectrum.

US Russophobia Approaching Pathological Transference

21 April, 08:14   http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Russophobia.html

The headline in the Boston Globe reads: "Obama focuses updated Cold War approach on Putin" and the New York Times article by one Peter Baker that follows is one of the one of the most acidic, fact-starved, sanctimonious, self-righteous, chest beating, Russophobic, war-propagandistic, Putin-envious, out-of-touch diatribes to come out of the western media in the current tidal wave of Gleichschaltung-like anti-Russian war-propaganda. 

The attack is almost criminal in its eschewing of the truth and if you dear reader ever entertained the idea that Boston was a bastion of liberal truth and that the first black American president was some sort of Martin Luther King, you may now group Boston with the vilest redneck burgs in Alabama and the president to the right of the farthest right of the neo-conservative war profiteers.

Rarely does an article deserve to be taken apart at the seams but this one does as the outright lies and vitriol are so blatant that there is a danger if even a small portion of the masses believe even 10% of it.That danger is not to the world, or to us over here in Moscow (we are unfortunately used to these kinds of attacks from the Russophobic lunatic fringe), that danger is to the American public, who continue to have the wool pulled over their eyes by a president and a government that is ready to send them off to die and force countless generations to come into slavery to pay for their maniacal excesses.

Openly Reviving the Cold War

To begin with the headline and the first paragraph take no issue with the fact the Cold War is over. However it does serve to announce to the world that what even three months ago was a well kept secret and something denied by politicians and those in power in Washington, namely that the US/NATO were pursuing a continuation of the Cold War, is now official policy and neither Obama and his henchmen nor the US media establishment have the slightest reservation (due to their delusional architecture) in admitting to what is in fact the complete and utter failure that is forcing the US to cling to a desperate outdated recidivist strategy that it now hopes to apply to a democratic country.

Baker writes: "The crisis in Ukraine defies easy resolution and President Obama and his national security team are looking to forge a new long-term approach to Russia that applies an updated version of the Cold War strategy of containment."

The outright idiocy of the first sentence (as if the US is actually looking for a resolution) denies the fact that it is the US that destabilized Ukraine in the first place and that they continue to support the illegitimate coup government and the neo-nazis who brought the junta to power.

"... updated version of the Cold War strategy of containment."

We must recall that this strategy was supposed to be against the Soviet Union and in order to stop the spread of Communism. Yet like bringing nazis back to power in Europe, we can see that the US never learns history's lessons and continues to pursue dangerous, confrontational, aggressive caveman policies on the international stage

The US Pariah's Psychotic Transference

Let read the next installment:

"Just as the United States resolved in the aftermath of World War II to counter the Soviet Union and its global ambitions, Obama is focused on isolating President Vladimir Putin’s Russia by cutting off its economic and political ties to the outside world, limiting its expansionist ambitions in its own neighborhood and effectively making it a pariah state."

Clearly the pathological transference of those directing the writer and the manipulation in the above is aimed at painting Obama as some sort of great "war president" when in fact he is a cowardly puppet who gets pleasure from authorizing extra-judicial executions and destroying countries.

The pathological transference of applying outdated policies designed as tools against the Soviet Union to Russia and accusing Russia of having "expansionist ambitions" is stunning. Just the fact that Obama and the US think they have some right to meddle and dictate to Russia and Europe, what they can do in their own neighborhood is a sign of their own expansionist mindset.

The unbelievable arrogance, hypocrisy and self-serving historical revisionism is also stunning in the above as we know that it was the US that destabilized Ukraine, organized the armed takeover of a democratic European nation and brought nazis to power in Europe who are calling for killing Russians.

The truest pariah and rogue criminal state in the world is the United States of America. Guilty of multiple acts of aggressive war, continuing to maintain an illegal torture prison, continuing to execute its own citizens, executing people worldwide without trial or charge and overthrowing governments and killing leaders whenever the whim pleases them makes the US the most dangerous pariah nation in the history of mankind.

Now tell me. In what way is Russia a pariah nation?

Obama Stomps His Feet and Holds His Breath

The writer says Obama has "concluded he will never have a constructive relationship with Putin" no matter what. I dare say after the campaign by the US to ruin the Sochi Olympics, Obama running around the world trying to implement sanctions against Russia for the coup d'état he himself signed off on, the non-stop placing of NATO war elements closer and closer to Russia and the fiasco in Syria, I think it would be safe to say that it is President Putin, who has continuously tried to work with Obama, who should refuse to have anything to do with Nobel-Peace-Prize-fraud president.

Ignore the Master?

"Obama will try to minimize the disruption Putin can cause. .. ignore the master of the Kremlin."

The disruption Putin might cause? What "disruption" is the writer talking about? Disrupting plans by Washington to violate further the sovereign state of Ukraine or NATO continuing to surround Russia and the People's Republic of China or perhaps the extermination of Russians in Ukraine and the attempted destruction of the Slavic World or the invasion of the next country that Washington is planning to destroy?

And what is with the "master" thing? This is a new one. Is this another transference of endemic US racism and an attempt to conjugate and/or elicit slave/master images?

“That is the strategy we ought to be pursuing,” said Ivo H. Daalder, formerly Obama’s ambassador to NATO, "... it may solve your Russia problem.”

Your "Russia problem"? Perhaps Mr. Daalder has also lost it? Maybe he will enlighten us with a "final solution"? Unbelievable!

McFaul 2.0: Dangerous Russophobe

The article states that John F. Tefft, a Russia hater who served as US Ambassador to Ukraine, Georgia and Lithuania and promoted the invasion of South Ossetia while in Georgia, the current crisis and the resurgence of fascist forces in Ukraine and the rabid Russophobia and demonization of Russia in Lithuania, has been chosen to be the next US Ambassador to Russia. Tefft was extremely active and involved and one might say instrumental in bringing about the aforementioned anti-Russian events. As McFaul failed to organize the destabilization of Russia and the ouster of President Putin, apparently Obama is seeking more experiences hands.

Dangerous rhetoric

With regard to the assignment the article states: "... now there is no reluctance to offend the Kremlin."

The US insists on isolating itself even further, for such a policy will backfire as Russian diplomats and leaders continue to stay open to dialogue and diplomacy. Again the arrogance is stunning.

An International Consensus: Coalition of the Willing 2.0

The US is becoming more and more hated every day. As Europeans and the world realize that Obama and his myopic, knuckle-dragging foreign policy elites vetted (like Obama himself) by senile-rabid-Russophobe Brezhinsky are only interested in resources and expanding their own caveman hegemony by force, the consensus against the US will grow thousand-fold. The writer tries to say China is against Russia, this is while China and Russia are discussing plans for tighter military cooperation against the ongoing provocation that is the placing of NATO war elements around both countries.

"The administration’s priority is to hold together an international consensus against Russia, including even China, its longtime supporter on the UN Security Council."

The US is Broke

The writer revealed a little too much I think with the following statement:

"... economic advisers and White House aides urging a measured approach have won out, prevailing upon a cautious president to take one incremental step at a time out of fear of getting too far ahead of skittish Europeans and risking damage to still-fragile economies on both sides of the Atlantic."

We know the US economy is about to collapse and we know that in contrast to the $15 billion Russia was ready to single-handedly hand Ukraine, the entire US/NATO/Eu could only come up with a $1 billion "loan".

Money talks, as they say.

More Sanctions Blackmail: Outright Lies

"The White House has prepared another list of Russian figures and institutions to sanction in the next few days..."

The first round did not phase Russia and was laughed off. I doubt this round will be more successful. Washington might take heed: Your sanctions will backfire I can promise you that.

"... while Putin seems for now to be enjoying the glow of success, he will eventually discover how much economic harm he has brought on his country. Obama’s aides noted the fall of the Russian stock market and the ruble, capital flight from the country and increasing reluctance of foreign investors to expand dealings in Russia."

Again Washington must be delusional, the Russian economy is going strong, the country is in the black and unlike almost all of Europe which is suffering from austerity measures, and the US with forced austerity where the public pay approximately 33% of their income in taxes and are enslaved to the military industrial complex for the next 1,000 years or more, Russia is growing stronger by the day.

Oops! Did I let the cat out of the bag? But then again, that is the real "Russia problem" isn't it?

FM Lavrov Calls on US to Take Responsibility for Ukraine

22 April, 07:28

FM Lavrov calls on US to take responsibility for Ukraine

The Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Sergei Lavrov has called on the United States to face responsibility for those they brought to power in Kiev instead of giving Russia ultimatums and making false accusations against Moscow. This call by Foreign Minister Lavrov and Moscow, while made in the language of diplomacy and a call to simply do what the rest of the world which abides by international law and standards, may be a sign that the days of US impunity and illegality on the international stage may finally be coming to an end.

During a press conference with the Foreign Minister of Mozambique, Oldemiro Baloi on Monday after a meeting to lay out the framework for deepening cooperation Foreign Minister Lavrov stated: "Before giving us ultimatums, demanding that we fulfill demands within two or three days with the threat of sanctions, we would urgently call on our American partners to fully accept responsibility for those who they brought to power.”

Against the backdrop of the press conference after the meeting where Russia is obviously expanding cooperation and simply doing business with yet another country on the basis of mutual respect, the call for responsibility make recent US statements about Russia being isolated as a pariah nation all that more ridiculous.

Mr. Lavrov summed up the meeting as follows: "Business contacts between Russia and Mozambique have become more active of late. "Favorable prerequisites are taking shape for giving greater scope to trade-and-economic, investment, humanitarian and other fields. Promising areas of cooperation include geological prospecting, mining, ferrous metallurgy, petrochemistry, agriculture, fishery, energy and infrastructure projects, education, and personnel training".

As with recent meetings with the People's Republic of China, Russia is obviously continuing to do what it does best, build peaceful partnerships and relationships between nations based on trust, mutual respect and in most importantly transparently and within the framework of international law and respected standards.

Despite the recent ridiculous sanctimonious statements by US propaganda tools in recent days, such as this one which appeared in the Boston Globe: "The (US) administration’s priority is to hold together an international consensus against Russia, including even China..." Russia continues to build mutually beneficial partnerships with countries outside of the sphere of the Yankee dictator across the pond(s).

Mr. Lavrov recently told Sergei Brilev in an interview on Russia's News on Saturday a weekly program on Vesti that: "China is a very close partner for Russia and contacts with it show that it understands Russia's legitimate interests and that both countries have identical views on the causes of the current crisis in Ukraine."

"The Chinese are our very close partners. This is stated in our joint documents. We have relations of strategic and multifaceted cooperation. They are stated this way. All of China's practical steps confirm its commitment to the principles the two countries have agreed to".

Vesti reported: If the Americans had made attempts at the top level to put pressure on China to make it revise its economic agreements with Russia, "the degree of naiveté or impertinence simply goes over the top", the minister said. "I would even say that it's unforgiveable for professionals who prepare such negotiations not to understand the essence of the Chinese policy and character."

Unfortunately understanding the people or countries of the world is not something Washington have had any inclination to attempt to do but soon they may be forced to reassess their caveman strategy of projection of hegemony by force as the world has quite imply had enough.

The US/NATO push to the East is going to be the downfall of the American Empire and the attempted takeover of Ukraine is going to be the straw that finally breaks the camel's back. This is good and as it should be. The world is a multi-polar place and multi-polarity is natural, healthy and above all the true state the world should be in.

The world has learned that culturally, diplomatically, intellectually and economically the US has nothing to offer other than death, killing, endless war, a knuckle dragging godless culture and endless conditions that subvert sovereignty in exchange for fictitious economic gains based on a currency that is not worth the paper it is printed on.

Hence countries who wish to conduct serious, professional negotiations based on the principles of multi-polarity, mutual respect and most importantly mutual benefit are more and more turning to Russia which steadfastly has pursued a foreign policy stance of rule-of-law, respect-for-sovereignty and non-interference.

These policies followed by the Russian Government, the Russian Federation and its leaders once again is in stark contrast to the Neanderthal barrel-of-a-gun (be it the literal guns of NATO or the economic guns of the IMF) foreign policy relationships that the US "hegemon" has been imposing on the world which is weary of US grandstanding, US wars and US illegality.

After decades of bashing around the world, committing acts of aggressive war, maintaining illegal secret torture prisons, conducting illegal mass surveillance, subverting governments, conducting extra-judicial executions, organizing coups, killing leaders and destabilizing governments, it may be that finally a day of reckoning for the US may be visible on the horizon.

This simple call by Mr. Lavrov for the US to take responsibility for the Nazis it brought to power in Ukraine should be a wake-up call by the victims of US foreign policy that the time is coming to force the US empire to answer for its crimes. From Bhopal to Abu-Ghraib, from Guantanamo to Venezuela, from Iraq/Libya/Afghanistan/Syria/Lebanon to North Korea/Sudan/Serbia the world has suffered and lost millions of its people to US wars, aggression and its reckless attempts at resource grabs and establishment of a world subservient to its hegemony.

Every move America makes in Ukraine is known, documented, watched and has been exposed. The covert takeover of Ukraine by the CIA is no longer a secret. They have been exposed and the lights are shining in all of their dark corners.

Crimes against humanity, aggressive war, torture, indefinite detention, extra-judicial execution, arbitrary detention, destabilization of countries, genocide, installing of governments, subversion of populations, theft of resources, manipulation of markets, massive surveillance and incursions of sovereignty maybe the life work of secret departments of the CIA and standard practices for the US but they are all crimes and the criminals should be made to answer.

I leave you (once again) for the time being dear reader with the following list of countries where the US has organized coup d’états, supported revolutions, overthrown governments, invaded, annexed, supported groups or forces who overthrew or attempted to overthrow governments or outright executed the leaders.

Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Bosnia, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, China, Colombia, Congo, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Germany, Greece, Grenada, Guam, Guatemala, Haiti, Hawaii, Honduras, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Korea, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Macedonia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, Samoa, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, Uruguay, USSR, Venezuela, Vietnam, Virgin Islands, Yemen, Yugoslavia and Zaire (Congo).

What they have done and are doing to Native Americans might also be added to the list and as the genocide of the indigenous peoples continues and is the foundation of endemic "American" racism and "exceptionalism".

RT Demands Apology from Kerry: Take a Number Please!

26 April, 16:33 

The recent comments by US Secretary of State John Kerry against Russian Broadcaster RT, which has been doing its utmost to try to present the truth about what is really happening in Ukraine against the onslaught of the unprecedented lock-step eschewing of the truth that the western media have been engaged in are egregious and must not be allowed to go unanswered. However the comments by Kerry do serve beautifully to underline the complete and total hypocrisy and the tactic of reversing blame that the US is currently involved in with regard to Ukraine.

A Return to American Exceptionalism

Of course there are exceptions to every rule and if you are an open minded fairly knowledgeable individual with humanistic qualities or a leaning towards empathy or of viewing all of your fellow humans as equals then you are probably one of those exceptions. However if you call yourself an "American" and are sensitive to criticism of your government's officials then you should stop reading this right now. Having said that (my disclaimer if you will) please read on dear reader.

The Dying PNAC and US Hegemony

What many have been dismissing as a conspiracy theory since 9-11 is beginning to become an obvious undeniable truth as the emanations become more and more undeniable. This is the fact that the United States Government was taken over by the military industrial/security complex in a coup on 9-11 and a plan to establish US global hegemony as laid out by the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) is being implemented.

The PNAC planners and the neoconservative ideologues behind the plan have "unfortunately for them" miscalculated the immense nature of the PNAC and have over extended every means at their disposal in order to carry out their plan. They have devastated the economy of the United States and if they are not soon successful they will bring about the real and imminent collapse of the American state.

In their desperation to fulfill their agenda, keep within their timeframe and faced with losses in the Middle East and the impending economic collapse of the United States and the entire petro-dollar system, the US has decided to take on their most formidable targets, the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China ahead of schedule and despite a very small likelihood of success.

The provocation of all out war with Russia is something that the US elites appear to be ready for as the neutralization of a Russian military response after a first nuclear strike is the US/NATO prime objective and placing US/NATO Prompt Global Strike (PGS) in Ukraine and other former Soviet Republics is absolutely vital for their system to work.

Keeping in mind these objectives and the Brzezinski objective of breaking up Russia into 68 parts, despite his attempt to claim that the neconservatives had given up on the PNAC and establishing US hegemony, then it becomes apparent and clear why the US is behaving the way it is with regard to Ukraine.

Kerry's Forced Fantasy World

When I watched John Kerry give his speech on Syria in August of 2013 during which he repeated the words "we know", after following his campaign against George Bush very closely in 2004, during which he seemed a champion for rule of law and an end to the illegal excesses of the Bush regime, I understood that the man had been "gotten to".

Appearing before the cameras over 45 minutes late Kerry appeared drugged and as if he was in a trance as he offered no real evidence for the US going to war in Syria and simply repeated the phrase "We know..." dozens of times.

During his entire stint as Secretary of State he has proven time and time again that he is merely doing the bidding of the military industrial/security complex in the United States. This includes the recent falsification of history with regard to Ukraine and his taking part in the current US "War on the Media and Truth".

The same John Kerry who in 2012 protested US propaganda outlets like FOX News and was himself the victim of a smear campaign through the lies and distortion of what was called the "Swift Boat Campaign" is now attacking one of the few independent media outlets in the world and one which is reporting the truth.

Whether Mr. Kerry is a willing participant or, after close deduction, has probably been forced into playing the role of a stooge for the military industrial complex is merely academic at this point his role is clear.

Therefore he will ignore the fact that the US overthrew the government of Ukraine, is attempting to legitimize the puppets they have installed and is engaged in an attempt at annexing Ukraine in a desperate bid to establish complete US hegemony in the heart of the Slavic world and divide the Slavic people through the US of neo-nazi elements.

Kerry Attacks Truth

The US war on journalism, independent media, whistleblowers and the truth is part of a concerted effort to wage war and continue with the US/NATO/PNAC agenda. This war is real, tangible and finally becoming obvious to the world. This is for a large part thanks to the real-time, on the ground, reporting of the facts that outlets like RT are engaged in Ukraine.

The nazi junta in Kiev has outlawed, expelled and shut down Russian broadcasters and journalists and anyone reporting on the truth in Ukraine. Including through the use of violence, threats and other methods of intimidation. Something I myself have had to go through recently as my reporting on Ukraine grew in direct contradiction to the US false narrative which the western media is egregiously reporting as fact.

Slandering Syria

Just as Mr. Kerry lied about Syria in the drive for war, and just as the Syrian Government demanded an apology for his fictitious statements contesting to Kerry's assumption that the US can unilaterally decide which world leaders are legitimate, Kerry is lying about the real situation in Ukraine and its causes, and attacking those reporting the truth such as RT.

If we recall in February Syria's foreign minister demanded an apology from Kerry before Syria would engage in direct talks with the US. On January 22nd Kerry made a speech in Montreux, Switzerland during which he said President Bashar Assad had lost all legitimacy and could not be a part of any transitional government.

Syrian Foreign Minister Muallem said at the time that no outside force had the right to "withdraw legitimacy" from the president or government except for the people of the country.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki at the time stated that the State Department would never apologize for the views expressed by the top US diplomat.

Slandering RT

Although it is highly appropriate and indeed completely just for RT to demand an apology, it is highly unlikely that the US will ever admit to its wrongs. The US is a recalcitrant bullying power entirely and totally bent on establishing its own hegemony by force. As such and as the record has shown apologizing and correcting wrongs is not something the post 9-11 criminal cabal in Washington does.

I contacted RT and requested to speak with Margarita Simonyan, who I interviewed in the past and RT provided me with the following press release and quotes by Ms. Simonyan.

RT Press Release

MOSCOW, APRIL 25 – In the April 24 US Department of State briefing on Ukraine US Secretary of State John Kerry claimed that the news network is distorting facts about the situation in Ukraine; RT issued a response.

Speaking from the US Department of State briefing room, Secretary Kerry said that "In fact the propaganda bullhorn that is the state-sponsored Russia Today program has been deployed to promote – actually, Russia Today network – has been deployed to promote President Putin's fantasy about what is playing out on the ground. They almost spend full-time devoted to this effort, to propagandize and distort what is happening, or not happening, in Ukraine."

"We are disappointed that Secretary Kerry seems to know so little about what is actually going on on the ground in eastern Ukraine in such a critical time, and invite him to watch more of our news reports," said RT editor in chief Margarita Simonyan. "RT shows the facts of what is and has been happening in Ukraine, from the very beginning, even if those facts are inconvenient to the Western political and media establishment, and therefore are disregarded by them despite abundant evidence."

RT will be seeking an official response from the US Department of State substantiating Mr. Kerry's claims.

In 2011, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called on the US Congress to increase the funding for Department of State and foreign broadcasting in particular, pointing to the fact that Washington is losing the global information war to channels like RT. Earlier this month the US Congress authorized additional funding for Voice of America and Radio Free Europe/ Radio Liberty to broadcast into Ukraine with the aim of combatting Russian news media influence in the region.

Statement by Margarita Simonyan

"There could be only one interpretation of the statement. Conventional wisdom has it that the US is seen as the defender of civil liberties and democracy around the world. But in fact Washington seems to be quite uneasy about an alternative point of view being disseminated so widely, uneasy to the point that we see a top senior official – the US Secretary of State – taking the time to thrash Russia Today simply for being the only TV station with a different message, a station they seem to be fed up with. I feel pity for the US over their state of the freedom of speech if they can't stand even our voice, as soft as it is."

It was actually The Guardian that ran an editorial today, saying that such a terrible channel as Russia Today, telling people about things that no one else talks about, should not be allowed to broadcast in Britain, and that Ofcom, their regulator, should consider if maybe they should kick us out of the UK. This is outrageous. It is one thing for an official to criticize a media organization, but here we have one media organization fighting another. What can I say? It's a good way to get rid of competition. Good job!
