Does Russia have the US outgunned?

Part 4 of the translation of:

http://inosmi.ru/military/20170302/238812175.html

Obama officially ended the use of miultichannel missiles in US air defense missiles: http://allthingsnuclear.org/emacdonald/the-end-of-mirvs-for-u-s-icbms

He did not require Russia to do likewise. This unilateral disarmament is apparently ok with the rest of the government too. In other words, all this palavering about the Russian influence on US elections is just politics. It has nothing to do with real life and the elites know it. You can bet that if the pols and journos who infest our environment were really serious about defense, they would be protesting the unilateral disarmament tolerated by our government, not snivelling about Putin influencing our elections, without an ounce of proof. In reality, they know the Russians are not about to invade Europe. Only the fools who read their swill are dumb enough to buy that nonsense. So what is it all about? My suspicion is that they are simply playing to their clients, the Saudis and allies, eg,, in Tel Aviv, who donate to the campaigns.

The following article shows that the current strategy using ground based intercept missiles is a huge boondoggle, but congress is happy to spend your money on it as long as you are ignorant of this fact. Will Trump be the one to wake us up or will he spend even more of our dollars on the boondoggles?

https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/182175-the-united-states-missile-defenthese-system-will-never-work-which-is-why-were-spending-more-money-on-it

Expert opinions that I have read tell us that even the sophisticated multichannel Russian air defense systems used with the S-400, and soon the S-500 missiles, are probably not going to be able to stop a hypersonic missile. Both the Russians and the US had therefore best start being friendly. God knows, Russia has tried over and over again.

But what would the pols do without an inmaginary enemy? They’d have to start actually solving the problems they create daily in the inner cities, in health care, crime, gangs, foreign military engagements killing civilians for profit, etc.

One of the best weapons against ignorance regarding “the other” is to learn his language. What I have learned is that there is no “other,” none at all. But there is an enemy, and he is ignorance. I recognized that I had to fight this enemy first in myself and then in others. Once he is vanquished, the world will be a safe place — at least as safe as before the Neocons and the “Enlightened Ones” like Bonaparte, Hitler, Bush, Clinton, Obama, McCain, Graham, Schumer and all that gang arrived on the scene to “help.”

I’ve been in the language learning and teaching biz for over 45 years now and am still going strong. The most important information I can impart about languages now is HOW to learn a language. Linked below is Part 1, for you or your loved ones who may wish to learn a foreign language. Part 2 will explain a breakthrough method for learners on the advanced level that will boost their learning speed enormously. The advanced level is for me the most important. It is the level at which you start to read and understand foreign online newspapers, for example. If you are studying a language of one of the nations that the Western elites want you to hate and mistrust, eg, Syria, Russia or Iran, this can potentially take you light-years beyond the obnoxious lies and distortions of Western press and pols. You will even see that many of the activists who purport to be open to Russia are Establishment shills IF, that is, you are willing to doggedly pursue the objective facts.

The following is my translation of the next part of this Russian language article (Part 4 here). It pertains to subs and missiles.

The Lada project is the latest attempt of the Russian fleet to create a compact diesel submarine that will be very difficult to detect.

Diesel submarine “St. Petersburg”

The submarine is quieter than its Soviet predecessor, the Kilo sub; it is also quieter than the engines of any of the modern Russian submarines.

Development of the “Lada” class began in the late 1990s. The first submarine of this project, the “St. Petersburg,” was launched in 2005. Currently, this submarine is the only submarine of the Lada class in production, but in the next few years  Russia plans to build two more of them.

Unlike the Borey class, the Lada is not designed to transport ballistic missiles. It is a non-nuclear combat submarine equipped with modern self-guided torpedoes for the destruction of other subs and ships. In addition, submarines of the Lada class are equipped with Vodopad torpedoes, created in Soviet times and intended to destroy other subs.

Details about this boat are for the most part kept under wraps. According to some information, the sub, with a length a 72 meters, can dive to a depth of 300 meters, and carries a crew of 37 sailors and officers. The sub’s maximum speed while submerged is 21 knots.

The Lada project is also known as the St. Petersburg class, and its subs are adapted for operations in the Baltic Sea and other relatively shallow waters.

9K720 “Iskander” missiles can hit Sweden

9K720 Iskander missiles are short-range ballistic missiles that can carry a nuclear warhead. The Iskander missile system replaced the old Soviet Scud system.

© RIA Novosti, Yevgeny Biyatov | Go to the photobank

Missile system Iskander-M

In addition to nuclear weapons, the Iskander can be equipped with many different types of warheads. Examples include high-precision bombs capable of penetrating the walls of a concrete bunker, cluster bombs and even electromagnetic missiles for destroying enemy radar systems.

At launch, the Iskander missile weighs about 3.8 tons and travels at speeds as high as 2,100 meters per second, making it very difficult for enemy air defenses to intercept it.

The missile systems are located near Kaliningrad, the former Koenigsberg in East Prussia, which at the end of the Second World War became part of Russia.

Last week, Iskander missile systems were transported from Luga, near St. Petersburg, to Baltiysk. The range of the missiles is from 400 to 500 kilometers, which means that they can strike southeastern Sweden.

In Baltiysk, which is located about 40 km west of Kaliningrad, the bulk of the Russian Baltic fleet is anchored.

Next comes the Soviet-era missile system, which is still used in the Baltic states.

Tactical missile system OTR-21 “Tochka”

The missile system OTP-21 “Tochka” is a tactical ballistic missile that was introduced to the world back in 1976. When the NATO Military Alliance learned of its existence, it was given the classification name SS-21 Scarab.

© RIA Novosti, Igor Zarembo | Go to the photobank

Preparation of the Tochka missile system for launching a tactical missile at the Pavenkovo ??military training ground in the Kaliningrad region

In the ’70s, the “Tochka” was considered a revolutionary breakthrough, because it used inertial navigation, which favorably differed from the predecessor of “Luna-M”.

The most modern version, which NATO calls Scarab C, weighs 1.8 tons, and has a range of 185 kilometers.

The missile can be equipped with either a conventional warhead or a tactical nuclear head.

SS-21 is part of the 53rd rocket brigade stationed in Chernyakhovsk, Kaliningrad region, says defense analyst Jörgen Elfving, a former lieutenant colonel working at the National Defense Institute.

“Every year, according to the Russia’s plan, two rocket brigades are re-equipped and receive Iskander-Ms. When the brigade in Chernyakhovsk will be re-equipped is not known, but in the course of the debates in Russia it is often said that placing Iskander in Kaliningrad can be an adequate response to training activities of NATO and deployment of their forces in Eastern Europe, “says Jorgen Alfving.

The S-400 can pursue 80 enemy aircraft at the same time

The S-400 is the new star of Russian air defense. The mobile anti-aircraft system is considered the most modern version of defense against enemy missiles and aircraft, along with the touted Israeli system “Iron Dome”.

The S-400 has a very advanced tracking system that can target 80 missiles and planes simultaneously. The main task of the S-400 is to neutralize the enemy’s missiles and aircraft before they reach Russian territory.

The anti-aircraft missile system uses three types of missiles: the 40N6 with a range of 400 km, the 48N6 with a range of 250 km and the 9M96, a version with a range of 120 km.

The launched missile travels toward the target at a speed of just over 1,000 meters per second.

In 2009, the Russian Armed Forces reported the deployment of S-400 complexes near the North Korean border. This was done in order to destroy the nuclear missiles of North Korea in the event they should mistakenly approach the Russian territory. [Even as wild-eyed US conspiracy theorists claim that Russia and N. Korea are military partners. It is safe to say this is pure fantasy, but what’s new?—Don]

Production of the S-400 began in 2007, and the system was developed in the late 1990s. Since then, at least 152 complexes have been deployed.

These complexes are included in the at Gvardeysk 183rd anti-aircraft missile regiment  in Kaliningrad. S-400s were deployed in the Kaliningrad region in 2012.

Their predecessor, the S-300VM, was exported, for example, to the oil-rich country of Venezuela in South America.

Next on the list is a bomber that Russia has stationed near Sweden.

End of translation

I have just made a huge discovery. A comprehensive Wikipedia article shows that the US does not use MIRVs to shoot down incoming ICBMs (BTW, Wikipedia is mainly for an overview. It is like the skeleton on which the flesh is suspended. Of course, you will need to go farther, but it is a good place to start).

Obama officially ended the use of MIRVs on US air defense missiles: http://allthingsnuclear.org/emacdonald/the-end-of-mirvs-for-u-s-icbms

He did not require Russia to do likewise. That’s why Western and Israeli aircraft entering Syrian air space are taking a huge risk.

The following article shows that the current strategy using ground based intercept missiles is a huge boondoggle, but congress is happy to spend your money on it as long as you are ignorant of this fact. Will Trump be the one to wake us up or will he spend even more of our dollars on the boondoggles?

Making sense of the Turkish coup attempt

Making sense of the Turkish coup attempt

 

Incirlik, pron. In-jeer-lik in Turkish but generally mispronounced as In-ser-lik by US TV anchors.

 

It has been reported by various sources that US forces in Incirlik have been surrounded by Turkish troops, although some reports now say that the standoff has been resolved.

The reason for this is that apparently, the recent failed coup against Erdogan has been attributed to the US, although this is a source of speculation. Some think Erdogan (pron. Er-do-an) himself staged the coup to consolidate his power and make himself a full-fledged dictator.

But all of this is secondary to the nitty-gritty fact that the US, via the CIA, USAID, the State Department, Soros foundations linked to the government, etc, has a long and sordid history of interference in other countries in an attempt to manipulate or overthrow governments and replace them with leaders willing to kowtow to Washington and spread senseless revolutions (which essentially started with the “Enlightenment,” as discussed here). The latest example of such US meddling may be the recent Brazil “legal” coup but no one can be sure. The latest documented example is the Ukraine debacle, with Asst. Secretary of State Victoria Nuland proudly announcing that the US had spent $5 billion of your money to overthrow a stable duly elected government and replace it with fascist-friendly “leaders” loyal to the US and EU. The net effect was chaos, with Ukraine now enjoying a standard of living that has been compared to that of Haiti.

Libya was another example. Further, the war in Syria can be traced back to the Arab Spring, a project sponsored by Washington and the EU that aimed to replace the stable democratic government of Bashar al-Assad with “moderate” Islamists and wound up spawning ISIS. Though the uprising has been portrayed as homegrown, numerous foreign fighters are involved. The US-sponsored and armed Islamist “rebels” recently beheaded a young boy. That is the new “democracy” sponsored by the US. Not the best publicity for US foreign policy, although good publicity is hard to come by.

This history of disastrous US-led interference goes back at least as far as the CIA-induced coup in Iran in 1954 that unseated a very popular secularist president, had him killed and replaced with Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, a very unpopular man famous for torture and murder of his opposition. In 2013 the CIA admitted its involvement. Pahlavi was eventually overthrown by rebels loyal to the Khomeini, an Islamic fundamentalist and Iran has been a thorn in Washington’s side ever since. Without our interference, Iran could be under secular rule instead of being dominated by Islamic fanatics. Only the Wahhabist Saudi Rat Pack is happy about this situation, which makes Iran an outcast.

Other admissions by the CIA include its admission, in 2000, of involvement in the Chilean coup to overthrow President Salvador Allende in 1973. The barbaric Augusto Pinochet, who replaced him, was subsequently tried for human rights abuses.

Kosovo is another example of US meddling and has produced a Muslim state where historic churches have been razed or damaged and no Christian cemetery has been left unscathed. The story is completely covered up, perhaps because the truth would be too much of an embarrassment to the Clintons, who made the decision to invade this once-Christian country and carve out a caliphate. By a twist of fate, I seem to be the only Western blogger who has uncovered these uncomfortable facts, as reported here.

All of this horrible embarrassment owes to the geniuses in the US State Department, who think they can control the world but keep winding up with unintended consequences that badly damage US relations with other countries. They are godless manipulators who keep proving the existence of God, the only thing standing between them and success in their Satanic plans.

What is happening now in Incirlik, Turkey, is another unintended consequence of US policies, in this case, the policy of “isolating” Russia. In truth, we are isolating the US, slowly but surely, as one ally after the other turns away from Washington in horror and disgust (as when almost every US ally in the world joined the

Chinese investment bank AIIB against vociferous warnings from Washington—it was a soft coup that went virtually unnoticed in the msm).

Finally, since Russia seems to have at least some involvement in the counter-coup, it is highly relevant that the US, mostly via the CIA, was deeply involved in coups and subversion against Russia, because this meddling provides a motive for the Russians to help counter this Turkish coup. Thus, even if it turns out the US was not involved, the blatant, counterproductive interference in governments throughout the world for at least 60 years, much of it aimed at countering Russian influence, has made the world justifiably suspicious of US involvement in all coups and terror events everywhere.

The CIA has not yet admitted to its involvement in the troubles in Chechnya that led to war in that Russian region, but this story is well documented and has been reported in minute detail by Zero Hedge. There are few pertinent reports in the Establishment msm, but a few have appeared, for example, here, here and here, which support the Zero Hedge report (I say that because the rabid Neocons who run the lying US media keep pretending ZH is unreliable).

Again, there is no telling whether the US was involved in the coup against Erdogan, and that is not the point I want to make.

I think it is clear that the Russians warned Erdogan of the coup attempt. You will recall that a Turkish fighter plane had shot down a Russian jet over Syria and this had led to a catastrophic rift in Turkish-Russian relations. But there was too much at stake for both parties to allow this contention to continue. Russia had agreed to lay a gas pipeline across Turkey that would supply Europe. Turkey would have had a steady income from the profits of gas sales. That deal is back on the table now thanks to Putin’s willingness to forgive.

Almost miraculously, the Russo-Turkish relationship may have been saved by some stories, whether true or false, including the report that the pilot who shot down the Russian plane over Syria was not following Erdogan’s orders in so doing but had perhaps followed orders from the US. That pilot has meanwhile been arrested, suspected of complicity with the coup. The story that the pilot was working against Erdogan is possible if far-fetched. But truth is not what matters in this case to the parties involved, which are eager to mend fences.

Like so much of what has happened in world affairs, this renewed Russian-Turkish rapport can be classified as payback for US meddling. And it could change the geopolitical landscape in ways that Washington will regret. US ally and NATO member Germany is already feeling the bite, as reported here.

The lesson, again, is that attempts to manipulate geopolitical events will always fail.

But don’t expect the Neocon maniacs in Washington to learn it.

 

 

Why you should fear the Fourth Reich

Why you should fear the Fourth Reich

by Don Hank

Recently, in a mass email to friends, I referred to the Merkel regime as the Fourth Reich, and this raised eyebrows. One said “surely you can’t compare today’s Germany with the Third Reich?” My response was as follows:

My ancestors were all Germans. On at least my Dad’s side, they had been banished from their homeland by the Lutherans, who tortured, murdered and banished all persons openly professing Anabaptist beliefs.

 

I majored in German in college and studied the language in a Junior year abroad program in Marburg an der Lahn, West Germany, in 1963-4. Why does today’s German government remind me of the Nazis, based on my experiences and knowledge of the Germans?

A German playwright named Carl Zuckmeyer saw something in the German character that troubled him. He saw that most Germans were mesmerized by authority, eg, military uniforms. He wrote about this disturbing feature and in 1930, his tragicomic play, The Captain of Köpenick, was published.

Here is a short intro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A912lD1xpy. This intro is followed by a movie version with English subtitles, which I suggest you take the time to view. I was assigned to read this play in the original German and found it fascinating because I had seen these very traits in people all around me during my year abroad.

Of course, if I were to say these things in public in today’s Germany, I would be at risk of arrest. And that feature of German government, largely accepted by the public, reinforces the description of their national character.

Hitler collaborated with the Muslims, like the Grand Mufti and Yugoslav Muslims, to kill Jews. Today’s Germany still collaborates with Muslims, inviting hordes of them to Europe, and they are destroying European culture and creating an existential crisis, including the killing of European Jews in France, eg, in a famous massacre at a Kosher grocery store in Paris last year but also in a famous massacre at a Jewish school.

The Third Reich had laws banning certain kinds of speech. In today’s Germany, there is a jail sentence provided for people who say the “wrong” things in public. For example, the well-known official story is that Hitler killed 6 million Jews. Anyone who says in public in Germany that he killed less than that number, can go to jail. Several authors, even non-Germans, have been jailed for writing books that counter the official view. I do not agree with these authors, but if you jail people for saying something instead of debating with them, then that suggests to the public that you do not have cogent arguments or are not intelligent enough to defend your views. It certainly reflects an authoritarian behavior and the fact that the Germans accept this reflects the sheeplike traits that Carl Zuckmeyer expressed in his play, as described below and in the linked film. In addition to Holocaust denial, you can go to jail or pay a fine for insulting someone or for inciting ethnic violence. In other words, if you don’t agree with Mohammed’s theology (and I do not), then you are not free to say so or explain why in Germany – a “free world” country.

It was Merkel’s government that condemned EU countries that refused — for reasons of public security — to take in countless “refugees” even though security officials have stated that there are almost certainly terrorist sleeper cells hidden among them. She tried to enact laws via the EU that would punish these countries for refusing to put their citizens at risk. The Germans generally went along with her idea but other nations balked. This was the beginning of what is now a growing rift in the EU. It will not heal until finally the whole rotten system collapses.

BTW, Merkel had sent millions of euros to support the Arab Spring that saw foreign fighters come illegally to Syria in an attempt to oust Assad. Now, instead of accepting the refugee flood that Merkel and her partners in Washington created, the proper thing to do would be to fight ISIS and other terror groups such as Al-Qaeda (currently called Al-Nusra, but it is the same group that knocked down the WTC on 911). Instead, she and her Atlanticist partners in crime (eg, John McCain) support Al-Nusra with arms and training and want to defeat the Russians, the only world power that sincerely fights ISIS and Al-Nusra terror and protects Christians and other minorities in Syria. If the West accepted responsibility for its evil actions and helped Russia clear ISIS out of Syria, it could invest, jointly with Russia and others, in Syrian infrastructure and resources and provide jobs and safety to the Syrian people, who would then have no reason to migrate to Europe.

And then, there is the matter of foreign policy. The “free” country of Germany has sided with the authoritarian Turkish president Erdogan against Russia and Syria. She, like the Washington government, has a visceral suspicion of all things Russian and, like our government, finds it intolerable that Russia refuses to kowtow to the West. Though no one admits it, this is racism pure and simple, a reflection of the previous Reich, though directed at a different group – although Hitler irrationally thought the Slavs – to whom, ironically, he lost his army – were inferior.

Before the illegal coup that destroyed Ukraine, German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier travelled to the Maidan to encourage Kiev to illegally and violently overthrow a regime that was friendly to Russia. During that time, he, along with US activists like John McCain, posed for photo-ops with activists having fascist associations, as described by Rodney Atkinson:

“Steinmeier, who recently said that eurosceptics and those nations who sought democratic self government were “a danger to peace in Europe,” was pleased to meet the leader of an extreme nationalistic and fascist party Oleh Tiahnybok with whom “Germany’s man”, Klitschko has been pleased to collaborate.” [my bolding—Don]

Recently, Berlin announced joint military drills with the troops of Turkey’s aspiring Muslim dictator Erdogan, who is known to be supporting ISIS. Of course, now that the Turkish government has seen another massacre and has attributed it to ISIS, we are supposed to believe that suddenly, the Turks are on our side.

However, if you believe the msm and Erdogan, namely, that the attacks were perpetrated by ISIS, then you must read an earlier report of mine showing that ISIS invariably claims responsibility for its attacks within one day and often the same day as the attack, as shown here http://laiglesforum.com/isis-always-claim-responsibility-except-in-turkey/3734.htm. In this latest Turkish attack, ISIS did not claim responsibility. Possible suspects include Kurdish separatists and the Turkish secret service.

At any rate, it is highly unlilkely ISIS was responsible. After all, you should know by now that Erdogan routinely sends ISIS fighters across his border into Syria and his son has bought oil stolen by ISIS from the Syrian people (see: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-11-25/meet-man-who-funds-isis-bilal-erdogan-son-turkeys-president). After all, claiming responsibility is a form of advertising for ISIS. They are not about to let a good propaganda moment go to waste. Indeed, they often claim responsibility for attacks that they themselves did not plan, like the recent lone wolf attack in Orlando. So why wouldn’t they claim responsibility in Turkey? I think this is best explained by the hypothesis that Erdogan and the attackers are on the same side. Of course, CIA chief John Brennan, a Muslim, supports Turkey’s claim that it was ISIS, claiming that it has their earmarks – sure, John, the devious Turkish dictator would not be capable of imitating ISIS, would he? He also admits that ISIS rarely takes credit for attacks in Turkey. He doesn’t say why. There can be no rational explanation – unless you accept the proposition that Erdogan is lying and that ISIS did not perpetrate the attack.

It is clear to me that the reason Merkel has taken Erdogan’s side is that he has her blackmailed with the “refugees,” housed within his borders. He has on one occasion threatened to put refugees on busses and send them to Europe if she does not comply with a certain demand. If the West were in the hands of sane and rational people, Turkey would be ousted from NATO and sanctioned.

But the harsh fact of the matter is that Erdogan owns Merkel like the Saudis own the US government, as I showed here: http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/hank/150314.

And that is a very dangerous situation. We should never believe that once a war has been fought and won, the ingredients that went into brewing that war are now cleared away. Of course, no one is saying that the Germans are going to start throwing Jews into ovens. But siding with Muslim radicals and letting them wreak havoc all over Europe, and then aiding the higher powers that created and foster the terror groups responsible for the havoc (the Saudis and Turkey in this case), is a really bad sign. So is the strong German support for the dictatorial (and collapsing) EU, whose unelected EU Commission is the only agency that is allowed to propose legislation, and which overrides all national laws, reducing the individual states to mere vassals.

Nonetheless, I would be remiss to apply the term “Fourth Reich” only to the German nation. The term applies to the Atlanticist empire as a whole.

New details on US-Saudi deal suggest Washington supporting terrorist regime

New details of US-Saudi deal suggest Washington supports terror

 

by Don Hank

Bloomberg recently exposed the storykept under wraps for over 40 yearsof the US-Saudi petrodollar agreement under which the US agreed to use its military to protect the Saudi family in exchange for the Saudis’ demanding US dollars as payment for oil and buying US Treasuries. The US officials who disclosed this story said that King Faisal insisted the deal should be kept secret because anti-US sentiment in the Middle East was running high due to US support for the Yom Kippur War.

The fact that the Saudis insisted on secrecy in this petrodollar deal suggests that there may well still be secrets yet to be revealed.

Considering that all US involvement in wars and US support for government coups outside the Western Hemisphere since 1974 greatly benefitted the Saudis and harmed the US people (Saudi support for terror, trillions of dollars spent on wars all supporting Sunni Islamization), it is highly likely that part of this agreement – certainly an unwritten part – called for the US indirectly to help spread Wahhabism everywhere. Because this is exactly what the US government did in its foreign and military policy for over 40 years. Don’t tell me it was all a coincidence!

Recap:

GW Bush covered up Saudi complicity in the 2001 terror attacks on the Twin Towers, as reported here.

QUOTE:

Case agents I’ve interviewed at the Joint Terrorism Task Forces in Washington and San Diego, the forward operating base for some of the Saudi hijackers, as well as detectives at the Fairfax County (Va.) Police Department who also investigated several 9/11 leads, say virtually every road led back to the Saudi Embassy in Washington, as well as the Saudi Consulate in Los Angeles.

Yet time and time again, they were called off from pursuing leads. A common excuse was “diplomatic immunity.”

Bush’s Iraqi war ended up with the Assyrian Christians leaving the country in droves. They had survived 2000 years of persecution but finally succumbed to the US-Saudi-led war that installed their enemies in power. The Saudis aim to eliminate Christianity from all predominantly Muslim regions. Hence, it was a Saudi win, but, like all US military engagements outside the Western hemisphere, it was at the same time a devastating loss – in terms of money, morale and security – for the once-Christian US.

The US-led war in Kosovo converted this cradle of Serbian Christianity into an exclusively Muslim domain, where the last Christian residents, who had spent their lives there since infancy, were mercilessly persecuted and almost all Christian monuments, such as cemeteries and churches, were, and are still being, destroyed and desecrated (http://laiglesforum.com/look-whats-happening-in-the-european-region-that-nato-defended/3786.htm). Again, this debacle was a clear-cut loss for the US people but a resounding victory in terms of Saudi goals. Indeed, Saudi money was reported to have “flooded Kosovo” after the war.

US Support for the Egyptian spring was apparently motivated by a desire to establish the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood in that country in compliance with Saudi wishes. I say that because there is no way that US officials could have expected democracy to bloom in that hotbed of  Islamic fanaticism. It succeeded under Mursi until he was ousted by Al Sisi. During Mursi’s reign, Christians were persecuted. A Christian Egyptian lady I know told me her husband had traveled back to Egypt during the Mursi regime and when they asked him where he intended to visit, and he mentioned the name of a predominantly Christain town, he was unceremoniously put on the next flight back to the US. At the time of this telling, they had never learned the fate of his family. As stated above, the Saudis aim to eliminate Christianity from all predominantly Muslim regions. A major US loss, a resounding victory in terms of Saudi goals – until the Egyptian military stepped in.

Libya was run by a secular Muslim leader who established stability and relative peace among all factions including Christians. The Saudis also aim to eliminate all secular leaders, mostly because they promote tolerance of Christians and Shia. Within a year after the criminal murder of Ghadaffi, aided by US-NATO forces, Libya fell into the hands of warring factions, predominantly ISIS, which adheres to Saudi Wahhabism and is a US-Saudi brainchild. Another Saudi victory, another loss – and humiliation for We the People.

The US supports the ouster of Bashar Al-Assad, a non-Sunni (Saudi Wahhabism is a Sunni sect), who also protects the Christians in his country.  Assad is also an ally of Christian Russia, making him doubly a target of the Saudis. The US motivation is pure and simple: Keep the Saudis happy by trumping up mostly unproven charges against Assad and training terror groups to defeat him. The US slyly calls these groups “rebels” but all of them are Islamists who will introduce Shariah law and persecute Christians. Many are linked to Al-Qaeda and have also passed on US-donated arms to Al-Qaeda and ISIS.

The dogged Neocon press insists that Iran is the biggest supporter of terror, despite the fact that this largely Shiite country has never supported any of the terror groups that oppose the West, such as the Taliban, Al-Qaeda and ISIS, all US-Saudi protégées. Arch-Neocon John McCain joked that he would like to bomb Iran. The US legislature was close to supporting an Israeli bombing raid on Tehran. This would have been another black eye for the US but a resounding victory for the Saudis, who aim to eliminate the Shiite religion everywhere in the world.

US antagonism for Russia can also be seen as part of this pattern of behavior intended to keep the Saudis happy.

The above recap of US foreign and military policy is ample circumstantial evidence that the most important elements of the secretive 40 year old petrodollar agreement are not known and may never come to light.

Nonetheless, this commentary is intended to encourage research in this area to see what might still be found, for examples, in records of classified phone, mail or email exchanges between the Washington government and the Saudis, and in the memories of officials involved in past US-Saudi transactions.

After all, confirmation that the government of the largest nominally Christian country in the world has been engaged for over 40 years in aiding and abetting the most intolerant and violent anti-Christian sect in the world – ie, Wahhabism – in its quest to eliminate Christianity everywhere might be a story of some interest.

ISIS always claim responsibility, except in Turkey

by Don Hank

What is Erdogan up to?

Have you noticed that after ISIS perpetrates a terror attack, it invariably claims responsibility within a day of the attack – except in a certain country.

I did some research and was able confirm this regularity of ISIS claims of responsibility in all the hits I got in a targeted search.

You can take part in this research too: In your search engine type

 

isis claims responsibility

 

and see what comes up. Here are some I found. Just a few examples. However, these came up randomly in the search, and there are none attributed to ISIS that was unclaimed. Do you see the pattern in this worldwide panorama?

 

The Brussels attacks on an airport and the metro were reported on March 22:

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-35869254

ISIS claims responsibility for Brussels airport and metro attacks of Tues 22 March on the same day as the attacks.

Blast in Dagestan March 30, 2016 Happened Tues, ISIS claimed responsibility on Wednesday, one day later:

Convert to Christianity stabbed Mar 23 in Bangladesh; ISIS claims responsibility the next day.

http://www.catholicherald.co.uk/news/2016/03/23/isis-claim-responsibility-for-stabbing-of-christian-convert-in-bangladesh/

 

Now keep something in mind: A few months ago, Turkey and Saudi Arabia started a military buildup obviously in preparation for an attack in Syria, ostensibly against ISIS, but suspected to be against the Russians and Assad. They’d need a really good excuse. The Kurdish attacks would not convince their allies since Obama and Putin had both decided to assist the Kurds in Syria, a big hurdle for Turkish president Erdogan.

Around this time, Turkey suffered some terror attacks. Some were claimed by the Kurds. The Turkish government blamed the unclaimed ones on ISIS (ever hear of a false flag?).

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/feb/17/ankara-explosion-turkey-injures-large-number-of-people-reports-say

“Kurdish rebels, Isis and a leftist extremist group have carried out attacks in the country recently. Ankara was already on alert after 103 people were killed before the general election in October in a suicide attack on a pro-Kurdish rally, which the government blamed on Isis [my emphasis]. A suicide bombing blamed on Isis killed 11 German tourists and one Peruvian in Istanbul in January.”

For Turkey, I tried a search with these terms:

isis claims responsibility ankara german tourists attack

I got the following hit and others like it reporting the attack and the Turkish government’s accusation of ISIS I found but no reports of ISIS claiming responsibility. How odd:

http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/istanbul-blast-witness-it-was-suicide-bomb-1537473

 

I also got the following hit reporting that Turkey invaded Iraq and Syria in “retaliation” for the attack, even though ISIS never claimed responsibility.

http://www.newsweek.com/turkey-attacks-isis-200-fighters-dead-iraq-syria-islamic-state-istanbul-415852

 

Isn’t it interesting that when ISIS launches terror attacks anywhere in the world it claims responsibility almost immediately – except in Turkey, where only the government blames ISIS. And funny thing:
Turkey invades Syria and Iraq to avenge itself of ISIS even though ISIS did not claim responsibility for the attacks in question.

Now Turkey has smart analysts and knows that ISIS always claims responsibility for its attacks. Therefore, it had to know that ISIS was not responsible. So why would it attack ISIS in two Middle Eastern countries in retaliation for attacks it knew were not committed by ISIS?

CBS reports (along with numerous other outlets) that Turkey and Saudi Arabia are threatening to send ground troops to Syria to fight Daesh (ISIS) and states that analysts fear the fighting could get out of hand. Translation: The Saudis and Turks have been behind the fight against Assad for years and this threatened incursion into Syria could (probably would) end up being a war between Turkey and the Saudis on the one hand and Syrian government forces, Russia and Iran on the other. The Turkish attacks were almost certainly just a ruse, or a means of opening the door for further military incursions in Syria. They were most likely also a way of securing US permission to make such incursions. The US did not take the bait.

Fortunately, none of the Neocon candidates was president or WW III could be about to happen. There is only one candidate who has not threatened war but he is the one the media are targeting as a potential warmonger.

He’s right. They are liars.

 

 

 

 

 

So you’re fond of NATO, eh, Mr. Cruz? Check out these videos of NATO in Kosovo

If you liked GW Bush and his wars, you will LOVE Ted Cruz, guaranteed. He will enable all of you folks nostalgic for the Bush years to relive all the exciting action and more. And Fox will make it even more enjoyable for you with their glowing reports of all the glorious US-led wars and attacks on everyone except the enemy.

In the wake of the Belgian terror attacks on an airport and a metro stop, Fox News is focusing heavily on Neocons in the discussion today.

Fox interviewed a host of Bush-era Neocons including John Bolton and John McCain, and showed Cruz criticizing Trump for wanting to withdraw from NATO. Cruz insists that NATO, the group that contributed mightily to the migrant wave in Europe, which brought terrorists along with it, must be strengthened.

Now let’s put this in perspective: the main reason we have waves of Muslim “refugees” invading Europe goes by the name of NATO, which has taken out Middle Eastern leaders who were the only stabilizing force in their countries, leaving vacuums that were predictably filled with ISIS.

Ghadaffi is the poster boy for this misguided policy. He administered one of the most prosperous and stable countries in the Middle East where Christians and minorities were relatively safe.

Then, without bothering to explain why, NATO took out Ghadaffi and within a year of that heinous and irrational murder (which made Hillary cackle), a group of about 20 Egyptian Christian guest workers were massacred in Libya by ISIS, which predictably rushed in to fill the vacuum, as seen on a viral video. The murder that led to all of this terror was an indirect result of NATO’s misguided policy toward Ghadaffi, which they have never adequately explained.

The US (which controls NATO) was also heavily involved in the Arab Spring in Syria and egged on the armed Islamist rebels, then supplying them with arms and training. Many of them later joined ISIS.

Now that the US has abjectly and deliberately failed to defeat ISIS in Syria and Russia has stepped into the gap and routed these terrorists in key areas, NATO is hypocritically wringing its hand over Russia, the nation that saved Syria’s Christians from almost certain death, and has added 40,000 troops to show the Russians who is “boss.”

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/syria-conflict-nato-raises-response-force-to-40000-troops-in-face-of-russia-s-aggressive-and-a6687046.html

NATO laments  in the above-linked article that Russia was attacking “rebels” at Jub al Ahmar near the Russian Latakia air base. That is nonsense. A report on the Russian attacks on this area shows a photo of a Russian strike on an ISIS stronghold there.

Further, the “rebel” groups there include Al-Nusra, which is a splinter group of Al-Qaeda (which took credit for the 911 attacks. NATO and Washington like them).

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2015/09/30/world/middleeast/syria-control-map-isis-rebels-airstrikes.html?_r=0

QUOTE:

On the other side, the rebel effort has received assistance from both the United States and the Nusra Front, an insurgent group linked to Al Qaeda. The United States and Russia consider the Nusra Front to be a terrorist group.

 

So let’s analyze what the NATO miscreants are actually saying:

NATO needs to strengthen its forces to oppose Russia in Syria because Russia is fighting rebel groups which include as their main component a group that is essentially Al-Qaeda, the group that took down the Twin Towers and declared war on the US.

In other words, NATO is alarmed because Russia opposes one of the US’s — and western civilization’s — most formidable enemies. Therefore, in order to keep Russia from attacking our enemy, NATO proposes to add extra forces to oppose Russia. Huh?

If you need to, reread the above paragraph a few times until it sinks in. You can’t make this stuff up.

Then consider this: Ted Cruz wants to strengthen NATO so they can oppose the only country that has effectively fought Al-Qaeda and ISIS — you know, the group that takes credit for all the recent terror attacks in Paris, Belgium, San Bernardino, etc, and has declared war on Western civilization.

So my question is: why does Ted Cruz like terrorists so much?

 

But the Middle East is not the only region that NATO (the misfits that Cruz wants to strengthen) has ruined and destabilized.

Here are some examples of major human rights violations by NATO, the runaway military organization that Cruz and all Neocons defend so fervently:

First let’s take a look at what NATO did to the civilian population in Kosovo:

Linked below is one titled “US army killing civilians and children.” This one contains poignant remarks by Michael Savage condemning Fox News for not reporting these horrors:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bkztr16IHeM&ebc=ANyPxKrEtQV7YMWmxcICWWrZpehL9Q8dfCkXQfWZuQNTbrDh0iEm04e4e8VFYMBgAMG_4gh9xAd2V6QDs5pb68b6_7_ZGfdrFw

Here’s a video of a refugee convoy hit by NATO (remember that these are mostly going to be Serbs, a Christian group):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5jCs6SQH3Q

An article summing up civilian casualties (these would be mostly Serbs):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civilian_casualties_during_Operation_Allied_Force

Here’s one titled “NATO kills more civilians”:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwgYrBpXI3A

Here’s a short video of a NATO airstrike on a civilian train. You can see that the NATO pilot waited for the train to reach the bridge before bombing it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIi2QDJYLwk

But you can find many many more of these NATO strikes on civilians in a Google search.

So what kind of monster deliberately targets civilians? Answer: NATO.

And what kind of monster defends this murderous organization?

Answer: Ted Cruz, the man who wants to be your next president.

And what kind of monster supports this monster with free air time?

Answer: Fox News.

Open letter to Stratfor publisher George Friedman

Open letter to Stratfor editor George Friedman

by Don Hank

Your latest analysis titled “Even as the Russians withdraw, their legacy in Syria remains,” reveals the estimated numbers and positions of Russian armaments left after the partial drawdown of forces in Syria. Your point seems to be that, while Russia promised a withdrawal of its military forces, it is in fact holding on to quite a bit of hardware and is in fact expanding its bases.  It is a military analysis of the type that intel agencies everywhere share with their commanders to help them fight an enemy. This analysis can only be interpreted as an aid in combating Russia.

However, the prime enemy of civilization in the world today is not Russia, but rather  ISIS and other Islamic forces focused  on spreading the creed of Wahhabism, the most violent, barbaric and intolerant religion in the world that has openly proclaimed that it will convert the entire world to Wahhabism by force and kill those who oppose it. The groups we call “rebels” are also Islamists and typically go over to ISIS or share US-gifted hardware with ISIS when they deem that such is expedient.

Say what you will, but the fact is that if Russia took over the US and Europe at some point, civilization would continue and would thrive. But if their enemy ISIS and the “rebels” took us over, civilization would die. Our women would become their sex slaves, among other things. There is no comparing the two scenarios.And more importantly, unlike the US government, the Russians have never said they were “exceptional” or in any way expressed that they wanted to impose their ideology or way of life on anyone or be the world’s policeman. So that scenario is not going to happen.

Since Russia is the only world power that is, together with its ally Bashar Al-Assad, effectively fighting ISIS, having pushed the group out of important strongholds, then your publication of this military analysis disclosing information on important Russian positions is analogous to an American news agency in the 40s publishing key positions and numbers of deployed Russian troops and armaments in the WW II theater. This would have been considered treachery by most American readers, who would have realized that this information would have been used by the fascists to their advantage and would have put all of the allies at risk.

Further, since Russia is part of a coalition organized by the US government, it is in fact our ally. Yet you treat it is though it were an enemy.

Why not publish such information about our enemies, ISIS and the rebel groups, and about their supporters, Turkey and Saudi Arabia?

At this very moment, Turkey, which has already shot down one Russian plane — a war crime considering that Turkey was part of a coalition that included Russia and was supposedly helping to fight ISIS — is allowing Saudi Arabia to amass fighter planes at the Incirlik air base for the purpose of invading Syria and, obviously, fighting against the legitimate, duly elected Syrian government and Russia.

Although the US government and media outlets, including those dedicated to strategic analysis, have made a supreme effort to portray Russia as an enemy and the Saudis and Turks as friends, the American people know when they are being deceived. They know that Russia is a friend of the Western people and do not trust the Saudi and Turkish governments.

Therefore, my question to you is: Particularly in view of your plummeting readership, why do you treat a friend as though it were an enemy and treat your readers as though they were incapable of doing even the most elementary analyses of their own?

Why Washington and Wall Street support Wahhabism

Why Washington and Wall Street support Wahhabism

 

by Don Hank

 

A reader of my commentaries sent this link to a story of a large American man confronting a Saudi in a US city who was raving on in defense of ISIS. This shows, among other things, that radical Islamists feel comfortable defending ISIS because they know the US government does not sincerely oppose the group.

I keep reminding readers that 92% of Saudi citizens polled have said that ISIS represents the “spirit of Islam.” That means we are not fighting just a rogue government but in fact an entire populace that would die for this fanatical idea. The Saudi fanatic is representative of an entire nation that loves ISIS, hates America and receives the full support of our wretched government.

Now Turkey is starting to run along with the Saudis and adopting Wahhabism.

Now this would be horrible but manageable if it were not for the fact that the US government has wholeheartedly supported the Saudis.

IF YOU NEVER READ ANOTHER THING IN YOUR LIFE, READ THE ARTICLE LINKED BELOW TO SEE WHY THE US GOVERNMENT IS SUPPORTING AND EVEN FUNDING THIS FANATICAL RELIGION BEHIND THE SCENES WITH ITS WAR POLICIES, PRETENDING THAT ITS WARS ARE DOING GOOD FOR MANKIND, DEMOCRACY AND ALL THAT ABSOLUTE NONSENSE. MANY OF YOU HAVE READ THIS BUT MANY HAVE NOT AND SOME HAVE READ IT AND THEIR MINDS SNAPPED BACK TO NORMALCY. READ THIS CAREFULLY:

http://laiglesforum.com/how-the-petrodollar-perpetuates-islamic-terror/3216.htm

After reading this, you will stop thinking the Washington Satanists are just crazy or inept. They know exactly what they are doing. They are propping up a dollar that, without the Saudis’ charging ONLY US dollars for their oil, would have melted down a long time ago thanks to the Fed’s seemingly insane policy of printing dollars unbacked by anything and our government’s frenetic give-away policies.

The Fed knows the Saudis have teflonized the dollar and it can’t lose its value. (BTW, if it were not for the Saudi support of the dollar, the Fed would be brought into line and the US would be able to grow its real economy again so don’t think for one minute that this artificial life support for the USD is a good thing. It only allows your government to control you and keep you poor while making its cronies rich). How do I know your “government” has made this pact with the devil and supports the spread of Wahhabism in exchange for a sound petrodollar?

The answer is so obvious and easy you will kick yourself for not figuring it out a long time ago.

Since Sunni Wahhabism teaches that the world should only be inhabited by Sunni Muslims of the most radical kind (like the chap in the video linked above), they will not tolerate 2 kinds of governments in the Muslim world, namely:

1–secular ones, like Ghadaffi’s, Mubarak’s, Saddam Hussein’s, Assad’s, etc. Now what happened to these governments? The leaders were deposed and they are all dead, and all the Christians in those countries are now in deep peril, are dead or have emigrated, right?

WHO — what country and its allies — killed or deposed these leaders? You know the answer to that. The Saudis’ GOOD FRIEND the USA. (It was not the fault of the general public. They were kept in the dark. But today is Sunday. If you are a Christian and you continue to let this happen — by never protesting and never telling your friends and family this awful truth, how are you going to face the Lord on Judgment Day?)

2—So what is the other kind of government the Saudis will not tolerate?

Christian governments, like the Serbian government. The Serbs are Orthodox, like the Russians. Not only that, there was a large group of Muslims in Serbia, and they were being ruled by this Christian government, which refused to coddle them when they committed the usual crimes like raping Serbian women. So the government cracked down on them. Behind the scenes, the Saudis told Bill Clinton they would not tolerate this situation. So the US government, media and allies spread the tale that the Serbian government – trying to bring the Muslim trouble makers under control – were committing genocide (that is the same story they tell about Assad – a story told and promoted by the genocidal Saudis!).

So the US went into Kosovo, supported by a false story of genocide, attacked the civilian population, bombed hospitals and other infrastructure, brought down the Christian leader, and carved a new MUSLIM state out of Serbia.

Our mistreatment of the gentle beleaguered Bashar Al-Assad fits this pattern perfectly. While he is  not a Christian himself, he is a Shiite (and specifically, an Alawite), and if there is such a thing as a good Muslim, it is the Alawites, who protect and aid Christians.

Assad is in turn supported by the Russians, and this fits the puzzle, showing why the Neocons in government and media have created artificial hatred of Russia, the most Christian country in the world, which has been provoked almost beyond measure by the US government. There is nothing in any of these details that does not fit my theory to a t.

Now we come to the most ticklish part. What about Israel?

Surely you have noticed by now that the Saudi-supported ISIS has not attacked or threatened Israel? How can Wahhabis tolerate a non Muslim state in their midst?

Friends, Israel is surviving by doing what the US government is doing: going along with the Saudi strategy (both the US and Israel are dhimmis). For example, Netanyahu came to the US Congress to try to persuade them to support an Israeli airstrike on Shia Iran. This is exactly what the Saudis want. Sunni Wahhabists cannot tolerate Shiites, and Iran is almost 100% Shiite — the branch of Islam that tolerates Christianity (although you would never learn this from the Neocon press and msm). Israel does not need to fight Iran for its own purposes. In fact, almost half of Israelis do not want such a confrontation. But the Israelis know that if they please the Saudis, like good dhimmis, they will be rewarded. They also know that they will please the Neocon US government. Finally, note that the only groups and nations that oppose Israel are predominantly Shiite, the enemy of the Sunnis, esp the Wahhabis. You see how seamlessly it all fits together?

There are many more details but let us stop here and analyze what we have got:

Since GW Bush, every aspect of US foreign and military policy has coincided perfectly with the Saudi Wahhabist plan, as you can see. There were no wars or near-wars – such as the US support for the Arab Spring, which brought down or challenged secular governments – that did not benefit the Saudi plans for the spread of their fanatical religion. And likewise, you will have noticed that there were none that really truly benefited the US or its economy.

The evidence for my theory is overwhelming and those who have read my pertinent analyses here http://laiglesforum.com/how-the-petrodollar-perpetuates-islamic-terror/3216.htm and http://drrichswier.com/2014/06/15/washington-d-c-seat-caliphate/ and have absorbed them are convinced. There can be no rational argument against this theory. The only barriers to accepting it are normalcy bias and a feeling that knowing this is like eating the forbidden fruit.

But God knows I am right, and Jesus said He was the truth and the light. The Bible says that men love darkness because their deeds are evil.

Washington DC is the heart of darkness. Our job is to flood it with the truth and the light.

We have no time to lose.

 

Are we on the brink of world war?

Are we on the brink of world war?

 

Don Hank
Zero Hedge recently published an utterly apocalyptic article titled The Quagmire To End All Quagmires, suggesting that the world is once more on the brink of war, and again faces madmen – this time Turkish president Erdogan and Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The factual content of the article is good and the analysis is good as far as it goes. However, the author is in thrall to normalcy bias and the usual overdose of Russophobia.

This quote shows that ZH has never considered the only possible way out:

 

In Syria, the US will either fold or go all in. On past form, it will choose the latter and rue it ever after. Few Americans, inside or outside the government, realize either that those are the choices or that the stakes are so high. Sadly, such realizations may come only when their sons and daughters are drafted, or as the image of a mushroom cloud fills the screens of their mobile devices.

 

This author is just as brainwashed as the average Joe Sixpack. As we see, he thinks we have only two choices — either stay out of the fray or go all in — but this is patently false. We have the same choices we had in December of 1941, namely, either go in as an ally of Russia or lose. And lose more than we did in Iraq, Libya, Kosovo, Syria, etc. We’d lose our country and what is left of civilization.

The hard truth that no one wants to face is that without Russia, the allies would have lost WW II. The Russians killed 3 fascists to every one killed by all other combatants combined. Yet only a handful of Westerners are aware of this – or of the fact that it was the Russians, not the Americans, who liberated Auschwitz. Russophobia was already doing its dirty work back then. There would have been no D-Day without the Russians because after the Germans made the mistake of sending their hapless troops into Russia, they lost the bulk of their fighting men, who mostly simply froze or starved to death. Without this catastrophic invasion of Russia, the German army we met in Normandy would have been overwhelming.

But the playing field is radically different today, and the layout of the chess board more favorable for a win if we can ever snap out of our media-induced delusion that Russia is the enemy and not our potential savior. Here’s why:

1–Russia is well prepared to fight the Sunni radicals in Saudi Arabia and Turkey. Her war planes are said to be faster and more maneuverable than anything we have; they have hyper-precision missiles, warships with anti-ship missiles; S-400 ground to air missiles that scare US military leaders to death; T-90 tanks that reportedly have withstood a direct hit by TOW anti-tank missiles; reportedly, tactical nukes that would level the playing field despite overwhelming numbers of men and materiel; and China.

2—The US is also well prepared militarily,despite rumors that we are weak,

3—Whereas the US hesitated for years before entering WW II, it now has the option of entering early.

On the debit side of the ledger, however, is the following:

Whereas in WW II, despite the fact that Russia was a communist dictatorship, Americans had no qualms about joining it in fighting the fascists, because they had not gone through a Cold War replete with anti-Russian Neocon propaganda including GOP primaries, and had not seen all episodes of Stallone’s Rocky series. Russia is now a modern forward looking democracy (maybe not perfect, but a more efficient state than any state in the West, given the populace’s willingness to fight and to follow a highly competent leader without the handicap of dozens of victim groups demanding special favors – a debilitating situation in peace time, but dangerous in war time).

Many hapless Americans now are imbued with the false notion that Russia is somehow our worst enemy. Our last 2 GOP presidential candidates fed us this lie and most of our current batch of losers is saying the same thing. Trump is the most notable outlier but even he has done some Putin bashing, perhaps just to blend in.

The most precarious aspect of our current situation is that, in a superhuman effort to suspend disbelief in order to support the petrodollar, we have been pretending for over 50 years that the Saudis were the good guys, to the point of actually supporting their insane campaign to make Wahhabism the dominant religion in the world, even allowing their proxies, ie, various terror groups starting with the Taliban and ending with ISIS, to eradicate Christianity and all other religions that stood in their way. You can argue that Washington was not really literally doing this intentionally, but US foreign and military policy makes a deliberate effort on the part of the US government to support the murderous religious fanatics the default explanation. Washington’s words were whispered, its actions screamed.

Events are now catching up with us faster than they did in WW II, and the inevitability of our joining forces with the Russians against the Sunni hordes is almost upon us.

Unfortunately, we have pretended for 50 years that the Sunnis were friends and the Shiites and their Russian allies were foe.

This is the main obstacle to our doing what we must do. In other words, Washington will ultimately have to eat a hearty helping of crow if we are to survive.

Given the past reluctance of our elites to allow Russia to do what she had to do to protect civilization, and in fact their absurd contention that Russia was a worse enemy than ISIS, the US has painted itself into a corner with its propaganda.

And yet events have a way of overtaking people at the most embarrassing times.

To get a glimpse of what is likely coming, remember French President Hollande’s abrupt about-face on Russia and Assad when he realized that he had been personally targeted by the jihadists in the Paris massacre.

Reality has a way of not going away when our propaganda effort demands that it do so.

 

 

 

 

Are you prepared to see your daughters and wives enslaved?

Are you prepared to see your daughters and wives enslaved?

by Don Hank

A reader who read my article Neocons: Isis is friend, Iran is foe emailed me and objected to my solution to team up with Russia and bring order to the Middle East, saying that Iran is a client of Russia and the Saudis and Turks are clients of the US. In other words, there never will be change in the Middle East, and we will always be enemies with Russia and friends with the Saudi and Turkish throat slasher supporters.

Maybe he’s right and this futile dance macabre will never stop. But it sounds like something worth fighting to stop, especially if you know a little something about the historic modus operandi of Sunni Muslims.

The difference between Russia and the Washington government is that the former has a client, Shiite Iran, that bears Russia goodwill and will genuinely cooperate with it (because it knows Russia will not tolerate any nonsense), while the latter has a client, ie, the Sunni world, notably Saudi Arabia and Turkey, that hates everything the US stands for and will eventually overcome and kill it (because it knows the entire Western power structure is a pathetically weak and stupid negotiator). Like a rattlesnake and its careless handler.

If the Saudis and Turks are a client of ours, then ISIS is also our client. They are all on the same team but Americans, suffering from terminal normalcy bias, refuse to face that vital fact and demand an end to this deadly relationship. Unfortunately, we have been led by the nose by Washington elites, but this must stop at some point because you can’t be with Satan and God at the same time. (The reason for the seemingly irrational favoritism toward the Saudis is explained here: http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/hank/150314. It turns out the US has a justification but an evil one).

The only way we can stop the wars in the Middle East is to do what is unthinkable for many Americans, trained to reflexively hate Russia, and that is, join forces with Russia and, as a team, make it clear to everyone in the Middle East (including Israel) that no one is special any more and no one is anyone’s client. And that our only aim is true and lasting peace between the nations. And that we won’t tolerate sneaky tricks or nations taking advantage of others or bullying others. You are taught to hate Iran and Assad and a large percentage of you do, but the fact is, they are being bullied mercilessly by the Saudis and Turks and their terrorist protégés, and Washington is cheering on the bullies thinking it can somehow outsmart them and stay ahead of the game without the snake ever biting them. Marlin Perkins also thought he was smarter than snakes, may he rest in peace.

Russia has already taken concrete steps to bring the two sides – Sunni and Shiite –   together and to equalize them, but the US refuses to go along and to seek peace or balance in the Middle East. Instead, Washington seeks to impose its will by creating chaos. But this policy has a shelf life and the product is starting to smell.

And know this: Civilization will definitely die within the lifetimes of our children unless we stop antagonizing people of good will and aiding and abetting the Sunni killers. ISIS will just continue to grow and flood our shores just as it is doing in Europe, even as brain dead Americans say “we have to be nice.”

There’s not much time left to rectify all the sins of the past and start moving to save civilization. If we don’t, you had better practice bowing toward Mecca and get used to watching your daughters and wives taken as slaves.

If you think I am making this up, view this video and draw your conclusions:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPbdMO2utVE

 

And stop saying it is all the fault of the Dems and Obama. This foolish mindset has brought us to the brink of calamity by inducing us to shuttle back and forth between 2 effete political parties that have no intention of ever taking a step toward saving civilization. And dismantling these parties, my friend, is job no. one for every American.

BTW, revisiting that earlier article, I wanted to point out that, despite the Neocon slogan that “all Muslims are equally evil,” there are in fact major differences between Iran and the Saudis. The people of Iran (not necessarily the leaders, of course) are kindly disposed toward the American people. Here are some links that clearly demonstrate that:

https://www.quora.com/On-a-people-to-people-level-do-Iranians-hate-Americans

http://takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/12/13/how-young-iranians-view-america/?_r=0

http://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/foreign-policy/240821-iranians-like-america-we-should-take-advantage

The article linked below shows that the Iranians and the Americans share a lot in common: Like us, they mistrust Washington. But 51% like the American people.

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=89683583

Now contrast this with the Saudis, where a poll showed that 92% of the population think ISIS embodies the spirit of Islam

https://muslimstatistics.wordpress.com/2015/03/19/92-of-saudis-agree-that-islamic-state-conform-to-islam-and-islamic-law-poll/

Now considering that the Saudis spawned Al-Qaeda, which in turn knocked down the Twin Towers and perpetrated other massacres against Westerners, it is plain to see that the Saudis do not like Americans at all.

In fact, their main religion, Wahhabism (a Sunni sect ), teaches that only Sunni Muslims have a right to inhabit planet earth. The practice of Christianity is banned in Saudi Arabia. By contrast, there are 600 Christian churches in Shiite Iran. Now no one is saying these Christians have an easy life. But much of the persecution is undoubtedly due to the fact that Christianity is falsely associated with the US and we have deliberately behaved as the enemy of Iran – starting with the killing of their popular president Mossadegh in 1953 in a coup instigated by the CIA (as confirmed by a declassified document). By this act, the US government provoked the Iranian people to see Washington as the enemy. Prior to 1953, they had done nothing to America to merit this slap in the face.

Washington then foisted the Shah on them (just as Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland later foisted the inept puppet Yatsenyuk on Ukraine), a leader they only reluctantly accepted and who wound up perpetrating brutal acts of violence on various segments of the population. This led to the radicalization of Iran that we experience today, which sees the US and Iranian governments at loggerheads with each other.

Incredibly, US officials have learned absolutely nothing since 1953. They saw what their intervention did to Iran. And then they saw how their more-recent intervention made failed states of Kosovo, Libya, Syria and, for a time, Egypt. Yet they have shown no signs of slowing down.

So how can this vicious cycle be broken?

Only you can break it, by telling your officials you do not accept this unwarranted support of the Sunni world – the Saudis and Turks who reject our people and our culture – and this unwarranted provocation of the Shia world, which is inclined to be friends if we let them.

Demand that the government stop the unfair treatment of our friends, including Assad and Putin, who protect Christians in Syria, and the Iranian people, who, along with the Syrians, are the only boots on the ground fighting ISIS.

Either that or prepare to see your women enslaved.
