Albert Einstein: "It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder."

Once again, Israel helps to keep ISIS/ISIL/IS/xyz safe from Assad's claws

What are partners in terrorism for, eh?  If terrorists don't stick together, who will, eh? Let's hope ISIS/ISIL/IS/xyz remembers to send benefactor Netanyahu a "Thank You" note for saving their butts in the Golan Heights.

Poor, sweet, innocent Israel.... always being forced to do things it does not desire to do.  Haven't we seen how Israel was forced to kill children and their mothers because Hamas was hiding behind cradles of infants and behind the skirts of the women?  Haven't we seen how Israel was forced to bomb power stations and hospitals  because Hamas had their tunnels under them, over them, in them, everywhere?  

And, yet Israel's despicable paid minions in the USA and UK have the gall to say that Assad is responsible for the growth of the terrorist army!

From TheTelegraph:
Israel was forced to shoot down a drone over its border with Syria as it faced the prospect of a wider intervention in the neighbouring civil war to end a hostage crisis in which jihadists are holding dozens of UN peacekeepers.
The capture of Fijian and Filipino troops in the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) by al-Qaeda affiliated rebels Jabhat Al Nusra last week has cast doubt over the future of the UN force on the disputed Golan Heights.......

.......The drone, believed to have been used by Damascus to monitor the rebels, infiltrated Israeli space from Syria before it was shot down by a surface to air Patriot missile.........

NATO members will spend millions on their paid holiday-aka-NATO summit in Wales

Plenty of anti-NATO and anti-war marches are happening in Wales and in other countries.  More and more people are coming to the grim realization that this organization, just like the UN, has had its heyday but now it's time for both to fade out and die.

From WalesOnLine:
A senior officer said there's no indication  that the Welsh Government or No.10 Downing Street will cover Newport council's costs

A cash-strapped council says it should not have to pick up the bill to accommodate anti-Nato Summit protestors.

Newport council has been pushing to get its side of the bill covered by No.10 Downing Street or the Welsh Government, but a senior officer said no indication has been given that this will happen.

No. 10, which is leading the event, says it will cover security – but one protestor said millions was being spent on policing but not on protecting civil rights.

Newport council, like every other local authority in Wales, is facing the prospect of multi-million pound cuts – it expects to have to save £13m next year.
From this week onwards protestors are expected to arrive in the city for a peace camp at Tredegar Park, as well as demonstrations on August 30 and September 4.
Senior Newport council official Sheila Davies, strategic director of place, said the authority is logging all of its costs – right down to road signs for diversions and extra time staff have spent on preparations.

“We are pressing home the fact that we need some commitment from No 10 Downing Street, or the Welsh Government, that they will reimburse any costs that might be incurred regarding peace demonstrations,” Ms Davies said.
“We haven’t had any indication that they will offer any contribution towards it.”

Costs for the council could come in the form of paying for a clean-up after the anti-Nato demos or if there is any damage to buildings – although the authority has said there’s nothing to suggest there will be any disorder.

If a peace camp does go ahead as planned at Tredegar Park this week, the authority could also have to pay out for toilets and for water...........

Libya .... the NATO created Utopia is ideal for Terrorists' Pool Parties on US property

NATO summit commences in the next couple of days at Cardiff in Wales.  Wonder which other country/countries are next on the list for NATO-made Utopias.

For your viewing pleasure here's the vid of terrorists having fun at a pool party in the USA residential complex of the US Embassy in Libya. Wonder if Obama and sidekick Hillary will blame this takeover of US property on yet another video which maligned the good name of Muslims and hence they had to take a dip in the pool to cool off.

From USA Today:
An Islamist militia has reportedly seized a U.S. Embassy residence in Tripoli, although U.S. officials cautioned that they have been unable to confirm the takeover.

The U.S. ambassador to Libya, Deborah Jones, acknowledged on Twitter Sunday that an online video of a building overrun by crowds of people "appears to be a residential annex of the U.S. Mission."

But she added that she could not confirm this. "To my knowledge & per recent photos the US Embassy Tripoli chancery & compound is now being safeguarded and has not been ransacked," she wrote on Twitter. A State Department spokeswoman, Katherine Pfaff, said Sunday she had no information on the alleged seizure.

The video posted shows unarmed men playing in a pool at the compound, jumping into it from a second-story balcony. Voices heard in the video identified it as the U.S. Embassy compound.........

On the ISIS/ISIL/IS/xyz issue and a harebrained UK ambassador

First off, WorldNetDaily (I don't go directly to that fear factor rumor factory ... this was through a link posted at a site I visited this morning) wants to tell us that a "source" has told it that  "Saudis may have paid ISIS extortion money not to attack the kingdom" and that same "source" has also divulged that the Saudis did the same with Osama bin Laden .... loaded him with money so he would not attack them.  

What I found more disgusting than the WND rumour mill churn-out is the vid below.  Watch how Brits can lie with a straight face. Looks like that "How To Doublespeak Your Way Every Which Way" manual is a "must carry" for all politicians. This man, who by some miracle of birth or bribe, has risen to the ranks of an UK Ambassador,  thinks people are going to believe him just because he says "Assad is the Frankenstein who has created ISIS"  .... or something to that effect.  The audacity of these people saying that about Assad who has lost half his army fighting the menace the USA and her allies have created is beyond the pale.  How can decent people bear to have such vile creatures anywhere near them without getting infected from the poison emitting from such evil?

Obama has extremely misinformed advisers on the White House payroll .....

or perhaps they deliberately give him wrong information to make him look like a fool.  The initial teleprompter jokes don't work anymore because those not deaf nor blind can see the man is highly articulate and deviously intelligent.  So, the powers-that-be, the warmongers, feed him a lot of misinformation on their enemies which the Prez spews out thinking he speaks facts, without realizing how stupidly ignorant he sounds on matters that he should have known better.

From Forbes:
3 Things Barack Obama Got Wrong About Russia  

President Barack Obama recently gave an interview to The Economist in which he was pretty clearly doing his best to give Vladimir Putin an aneurysm:

Obama downplayed Moscow’s role in the world, dismissing President Vladimir Putin as a leader causing short-term trouble for political gain that will hurt Russia in the long term.

“I do think it’s important to keep perspective. Russia doesn’t make anything,” Obama said in the interview.

“Immigrants aren’t rushing to Moscow in search of opportunity. The life expectancy of the Russian male is around 60 years old. The population is shrinking,” he said.

Obama has managed to compress a pretty startling amount of factual inaccuracy into just 3 short sentences. Let’s take his claims in order.

1) “Immigrants aren’t rushing to Moscow in search of opportunity” 

One of the first things that anyone notices when they are in Moscow is the enormous number of immigrants from Central Asia. Probably the single most noteworthy and inescapable feature of modern Russian life is the prevalence of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people who have already rushed to Moscow “in search of opportunity.” It’s impossible to miss them.

If for some reason you distrust the official statistics that demonstrate the huge numbers of immigrants moving to Russia, maybe you’d be willing to listen to liberal darling Alexey Navalny. Navalny, you see, is actively agitating on behalf of aggressive anti-immigration policies, recently writing yet another blog post bemoaning the massive numbers of Muslim “guest workers.”  Navalny’s (popular) campaign only makes sense if there are large numbers of immigrants. Indeed a media outlet fully funded by Barack Obama’s very own government recently produced an interesting video showing how Eid Al-Fitr was celebrated in Moscow by the throngs of immigrants that are (you guessed it) there “in search of opportunity.”

Russia is widely acknowledged to be the world’s second most popular destination for immigrants after the United States, and several of the most consequential political disagreements in Russian society revolve around the question of how to deal with immigration. Anyone who thinks that Russia isn’t dealing with a significant debate over immigration simply doesn’t know anything about the country.

2) “The life expectancy of the Russian male is around 60 years old”
The life expectancy of the Russian male isn’t a subject of conjuncture or obscure philosophical inquiry, it is a number that is very easily found on the public-facing website of the Russian state statistics service. In 2013, the average male life expectancy in Russia was a little bit above 65 (technically it was 65.14). When Obama says that life expectancy is “around 60″ he’s off by about 8%. With a similar margin of error we could say that Barack Obama is the 41st president of the United States, that he won 47% of the vote in the 2012 presidential election, and that he was born in 1957. 8% is a margin of error that people rarely feel confident using, because it very quickly makes you sound rather ill-informed and ignorant.

It is still possible, of course, to argue that Russian male life expectancy is low. In comparison to other countries in the region it is rather low. But there’s a difference between 65 and 60. One is factually accurate and one isn’t. For some reason Obama chose to go with the inaccurate one, and it’s worth pointing out as much.

3) “The population is shrinking”
Obama’s statement is a perfect example of why I so frequently write about a topic as seemingly obscure and boring as Russian demography: people from the US political elite almost always make huge mistakes when talking about it. Russia’s population is not shrinking, it is growing. The Russian population isn’t just growing in 2014, it also grew in 2013. And 2012. And 2011. And 2010. And 2009. Unless you get into a Bill Clinton-like debate over the meaning of the word “is,” it’s impossible to argue that Russia’s population is shrinking. It was shrinking in the past and it is likely to shrink in the future, but it is not shrinking at the present moment. Not a very complicated concept.

I’m fully aware, of course, that Russian demography is not the most important issue in the world. Countries will not rise and fall because Barack Obama used out of date information on Russian life expectancy. But it really does not say anything good about Obama’s team that ..........

There's at least one senator in the US who's not blind and deaf when it comes to Syria .....

and his name is Richard Black, a senator from Virginia. He knows about the plight of Christians and the other minorities in the Middle East,  the same minorities that warmonger John McCain and his transgender wannabe sidekick want eradicated from Syria along with Assad their protector.

How the BBC expunges the failures and the suffering going on in Libya ....

that total and utter failure there is primarily because the satanic forces in NATO want to break up break up countries whose leaders are considered not to be bending to the will of the satanic ones. Why only Libya, BBC also expunges all the suffering and the utter horror going on in Syria.  We all know that the UK was instrumental in training anti-Gadhafi elements just as we all know that the USA and her allies are responsible for the wahhabi terrorist army now rampaging in the Middle East.

BBC Expunges Libya’s Suffering.
On 27 August 2014, Tarek Mitri, Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya, delivered a farewell address to the Security Council. Mitri began his remarks with ‘[c]onservative figures for those displaced … estimated at over 100,000, with at least another 150,000, including many migrant workers, [who] have sought refuge abroad and fled the country’. That’s the per capita equivalent of 2.5 million Britons driven from their homes by violence.

‘There is a general deterioration of living conditions. Food, fuel, water and electricity are in short supply. The departure of foreign medical staff and shortages in medical supplies has rendered the plight of civilians more critical’, Mitri continued. ‘The damage inflicted on public installations in Tripoli’s southern and western sections – including the airport, the main oil depot, roads and bridges – is nothing less than tragic’.......

.....Britain has a pivotal role in Libya’s suffering, having secretly trained and armed anti-Gaddafi elements as early as October 2010 in preparation for the dictator’s overthrow. Until 2010, Gaddafi was an ally, but his refusal to implement ‘reforms’ in—i.e., privatisation of—the energy sector meant that his days were numbered. Islamic terrorist groups featured in, but were not the focus of, Mitri’s address. The much bigger critique was the collapse of the State, resulting from NATO’s 2011 illegal, ‘humanitarian’ bombing.

The BBC’s report, however, is centred around the Islamic groups, as if they are the sole cause and origin of the current crisis. The BBC’s article, ‘UN to impose sanctions on Libyan militia leaders’, makes absolutely no mention of the 250,000 displaced persons, the ‘general deterioration of living conditions’, or the ‘critical … plight of civilians’ noted by Mitri. See, instead how the BBC reports Mitri’s address:
‘Recent clashes have centred on the international airport in the capital, Tripoli, which is now under the control of militias from Misrata and other cities operating under the banner Libya Dawn, including some Islamist groups.
They took it from the hands of a Zintan-based militia, despite alleged air strikes carried out by Egypt and the UAE targeting the Islamist-linked group’

Notice in the BBC’s rendering the absence of humanitarian context, the omission of State crimes, and any mention of the refusal of both militias and government to adopt ceasefire proposals.

Prior to and during ‘Operation Unified Protector’, the BBC championed NATO’s destruction of Libya, in which 50,000 people died, according to figures given by the Western-installed puppet regime (see note 2). That is the per capita equivalent of 500,000 Britons. Thus it is only to be expected that the BBC’s report would expunge Mitri’s rendering of Libya’s new ‘democracy’. Mitri said: ‘Many Libyans continue to be sceptical of the political process in their country and frustrated with their political elites. Low participation in the two recent elections is an indication of such erosion of credibility’. This defies media lies concerning Libyans’ supposed appreciation of NATO..........

Russia's Prez spends more than 2 hours taking gruelling questions from students

Would any one of our Western leaders sit with our youngsters even for 30 minutes?  I thought I would listen for just a few minutes but wound up listening to the entire thing.  The Western press has demonized the Russian leader but many people are waking up to the extent of the propaganda that is more prevalent on our own side rather than from the Russian side.  

The mystery of M14, M16 rifles and military Humvees disappearing from US police agencies

Oh where oh where could  those rifles have gone?
Oh where oh where could they be?
Oh where oh where are those gleaming humvees?
Oh where oh where could they be?

Watch how within a few days the powers-that-be will say that the missing items was just a matter of an "audit error"  ..... wanna bet?

Annabelle Bamforth writing at BenSwann:
Police Departments Losing Humvees And Military Weapons   
A Fusion investigation of the Pentagon’s “1033 Program” has uncovered a disturbing pattern of misplaced military-issued weaponry within local and state police agencies.

Program 1033 is formerly known as Program 1208; when Congress enacted the National Defense Authorization Act in 1990, section 1208 authorized the Secretary of Defense to transfer “to Federal and State agencies personal property of the Department of Defense, including small arms and ammunition”. In 1996, Section 1208 was replaced by Section 1033.

A Pentagon spokeswoman told Fusion that “Congress’ intent with the program is to enhance public safety and improve homeland security by leveraging taxpayer investments in defense technology and equipment.”

Fusion’s investigation discovered that 184 state and local police agencies have been suspended from Program 1033 because the agencies have lost track of the weapons they were given. The media outlet found that there is an outstanding pattern of missing M14 and M16 rifles throughout the United States. Missing pistols, shotguns and Humvees were also noted.

States including Mississippi, California, Georgia, Arizona and Arkansas have been found to be missing various weapons allocated by the program.

The Pentagon clarified that no police agencies were suspended from Program 1033 because of their usage of the weapons.

Equipment transferred from the military to state and local police departments is overseen by a state agency- the department of public safety, for example. A state coordinator, appointed by a governor, is responsible for watching over equipment inventory and ensuring cooperation with federal guidelines.

According to Fusion, “The decentralized structure of the program makes it difficult — even for the Pentagon — to keep tabs on the standing of participating police departments, or the weapons they’ve been issued. Officials at the Pentagon’s Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), which runs the equipment-transfer program, were unable to provide specifics about why various police departments were suspended. And many state coordinators refused to speak to Fusion, or claimed they didn’t have the information requested.”

Willingness to speak about the suspensions varied between different police departments and state coordinators. The state coordinator in California claimed he was “not authorized” to speak about the agency. .....

How many "Europeans" in the ISIS/ISIL/IS/xyz wahhabi terrorist army?

So .... looking at the chart below, can we say that Europe has invaded Syria and Iraq and might invade Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Israel ?  That's the new doublespeak with reference to Russia isn't it, so why can't we apply it to the case in the Middle East too, eh?

From The Economist:
Why and how Westerners go to fight in Syria and Iraq  

THE two young men in the bus from Antakya, in south-eastern Turkey, to Reyhanli, nearer the border with Syria, sported long beards, calf-length trousers and toted small drawstring bags with their minimal belongings. They spoke in broken Arabic to the bus driver (local Turks usually have a smattering of the language) but to each other in a regional British accent. They were just two out of hundreds of Muslims from Europe, setting off to Syria to join the battle. That was two years ago. Since then, several thousand may have signed up—and the rate may be increasing. What do they do when they get there? And what might they do when they go home?

The effect of the swelling influx is apparent as the Islamic State (IS), a brutal extremist group in Syria and Iraq that has attracted most foreign fighters, stakes a claim to a swathe of territory that is the size of Jordan and embraces a similar population—6m or so. Boastful combatants post well-scripted videos to attract their foreign peers, promising heaven for those who leave their lives of Western decadence to become “martyrs”. They tweet “selfies” holding the severed heads of their enemies after photos of the luxuries, such as Red Bull, an energy drink, that are available to the fighters. And they issue threats to the West while using emoticons—smiling faces, for instance, formed by punctuation marks—and internet acronyms such as LOL.......

NATO not able to counter any form of Russian adventurism ... says ex-deputy supreme commander of NATO

This is a great news for armaments making entities. They probably wanted this very result.  Watch how the EU countries and other members of NATO rush to place orders for new WMD.  

Actually, I find this very odd.  How would it be possible that NATO which includes the USA's military might, be helpless in defending Western Europe?  Does he mean NATO without the USA? Strange!   IMO, this is a calculated statement to get all NATO members to put in their equal share and not have to rely only on the USA, France, Germany, UK, Canada and Australia. Trust the Brits to be subtle to the core.  No wonder the Muslims have taken over their country because they never tell you openly and clearly what it is they are saying or want from you. 

From ITV:
Nato 'unable to defend western Europe against Russia'  

Western Europe would not be able to defend itself against Russian intervention because of the progressive dismantling of military capability, one of Britain's most senior generals has warned.

In a wide-ranging interview with BBC's Newsnight, General Sir Richard Shirreff called on Nato to rearm if it was serious about defending itself in the future.

Asked about the crisis in Ukraine, he said: "The reality is that Nato would be very hard pressed and they would find it very difficult to put into the field, at sea or into the air the means required, particularly on land I would assess, to counter any form of Russian adventurism."

Currently just four out of the 28 Nato members spend more than the minimum target of 2% of GDP on defence.

Wanna look at radical butts

Pic is from 2004 and these guys are polluting the air near Finsbury Park, London

Muslims just don't understand how ridiculous and ugly their butts look when they pray to their whatever.  How can we not say something when we see this going on?  If you remain silent it would turn your bile  at seeing such sights into erosive cancer causing elements.
Can't these people refrain from showing their butts like this in public.  And, mind you, these are the same fucks who take offence when they see scantily clad women but to show their vulgar looking behinds all ready and willing for penetration is fine?

Farts aplenty 

Oh man .... the hypocrisy of Obama and the USA !

When the President of the United States of America says this:

....The Economist: You tried to reset with Russia.    Angela Merkel spent the whole time telephoning Vladimir Putin. To what extent do you feel let down almost personally by what’s happened?

Mr Obama: I don’t feel let down. We had a very productive relationship with President Medvedev. We got a lot of things done that we needed to get done. Russia I think has always had a Janus-like quality, both looking east and west, and I think President Putin represents a deep strain in Russia that is probably harmful to Russia over the long term, but in the short term can be politically popular at home and very troublesome abroad.
But I do think it’s important to keep perspective. Russia doesn’t make anything. Immigrants aren’t rushing to Moscow in search of opportunity. The life expectancy of the Russian male is around 60 years old. The population is shrinking. And so we have to respond with resolve in what are effectively regional challenges that Russia presents. We have to make sure that they don’t escalate where suddenly nuclear weapons are back in the discussion of foreign policy. And as long as we do that, then I think history is on our side.

it's perfectly alright.
However, when the President of Russia says the below, everybody and their uncle go batshit crazy:  
It's good that Putin is reminding people that Russia has nuclear capabilities in the hope that it will dither NATO from an all-out war against Russia which would undoubtedly endanger the entire planet.

From TheTelegraphUK:
Vladimir Putin: Don't mess with nuclear-armed Russia  
Russia's president, speaking at a pro-Kremlin youth camp at a lake near Moscow, said "it's best not to mess with us," adding "I want to remind you that Russia is one of the leading nuclear powers"

Vladimir Putin raised the spectre of nuclear war with the West on Friday as he defied international condemnation over his decision to send thousands of Russian troops and heavy armour into Ukraine.
Accused by Europe and Nato of launching a full-scale invasion of eastern Ukraine, the Russian leader boasted to a group of Russian youngsters that "It's best not to mess with us."
In language not seen since the height of the Cold War, he told his audience: "Thank God, I think no one is thinking of unleashing a large-scale conflict with Russia. I want to remind you that Russia is one of the leading nuclear powers."
Mr Putin's comments, made during a visit to a pro-Kremlin youth camp on the banks of a lake outside Moscow, will horrify Western governments as they try to bring Russia into check. Even during the height of Cold War hostilities, few Kremlin leaders ever resorted to the direct mentions of Russia's nuclear arsenal..........

It's time the world stopped employing double standards

Ilan Pappé is an Israeli historian at the University of Exeter, UK, and below some extracts from his insightful article.

From PlymouthInstituteForPeace:
The Historical Perspective of the 2014 Gaza Massacre  

.....The pretext determined the timing – but the viciousness of the assault was the outcome of Israel’s inability to formulate a clear policy towards the Strip it created in 1948. The only clear feature of that policy is the deep conviction that wiping out the Hamas from the Gaza Strip would domicile the Ghetto there.

Since 1994, even before the rise of Hamas to power in the Gaza Strip, the very particular geopolitical location of the Strip made it clear that any collective punitive action, such as the one inflicted now, could only be an operation of massive killings and destruction. In other words: an incremental genocide.

This recognition never inhibited the generals who give the orders to bomb the people from the air, the sea and the ground. Downsizing the number of Palestinians all over historic Palestine is still the Zionist vision; an ideal that requires the dehumanisation of the Palestinians. In Gaza, this attitude and vision takes its most inhuman form.

The particular timing of this wave is determined, as in the past, by additional considerations. The domestic social unrest of 2011 is still simmering and for a while there was a public demand to cut military expenditures and move money from the inflated ‘defence’ budget to social services. The army branded this possibility as suicidal. There is nothing like a military operation to stifle any voices calling on the government to cut its military expenses.

Typical hallmarks of the previous stages in this incremental genocide reappear in this wave as well. As in the first operation against Gaza, ‘First Rains’ in 2006, and those which followed in 2009, ‘Cast Lead’, and 2012, ‘Pillar of Smoke’, one can witness again consensual Israeli Jewish support for the massacre of civilians in the Gaza Strip, without one significant voice of dissent. The Academia, as always, becomes part of the machinery. Various universities offered the state its student bodies to help and battle for the Israeli narrative in the cyberspace and alternative media.

The Israeli media, as well, toed loyally the government’s line, showing no pictures of the human catastrophe Israel has wreaked and informing its public that this time, ‘the world understands us and is behind us’. That statement is valid to a point as the political elites in the West continue to provide the old immunity to the Jewish state. The recent appeal by Western governments to the prosecutor in the international court of Justice in The Hague not to look into Israel’s crimes in Gaza is a case in point. Wide sections of the Western media followed suit and justified by and large Israel’s actions.

This distorted coverage is also fed by a sense among Western journalist that what happens in Gaza pales in comparison to the atrocities in Iraq and Syria. Comparisons like this are usually provided without a wider historical perspective. A longer view on the history of the Palestinians would be a much more appropriate way to evaluate their suffering vis-à-vis the carnage elsewhere..........

.......A world that would stop employing double standards in its dealings with Israel is a world that could be far more effective in its response to war crimes elsewhere in the world............

The War of Maps by the unruly school boys and school girls of NATO

These crazies are the ones who are going to bring our world to an end.  Forget about global warming, the environment, comets hitting us, earthquake disasters, plagues and everything else. It's NATO's unruly children which will bring about the end of the world with the upcoming world war they are cooking up to poison us all.

Not that I didn't find it funny, I did.  But, their actions on Twitter proves to me that their actions in important matters to do with life on Earth will be something akin to a competition and tit-for-tat and that means these people have disastrously dangerous mindsets.

Russia Twitter-Fights Canada  in Ukraine Map Dispute

When all other avenues seem to be exhausted, maybe Twitter is the place for international diplomacy — and conflict — to play out. Canada and Russia are taking the border dispute over Ukraine to the 140-character platform.

On Wednesday, as Kiev was accusing Russia of sending troops across Ukraine’s border, the Canadian Joint Delegation to NATO’s Twitter account posted a map showing Russia and labeling Ukraine as “not Russia.”

The tweet was accompanied with the text, “Geography can be tough. Here’s a guide for Russian soldiers who keep getting lost & ‘accidentally’ entering #Ukraine.”

The map quickly spread on social media — with even the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Powers reposting it. 

Not to be outdone, Russia’s NATO account followed up Thursday, saying they were also trying to help educate Canada about “contemporary geography.”

Russia’s map marks the disputed Crimean peninsula as part of Russia. It also highlights the disputed areas of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, which were split off from Georgia in 2008.

The UK's terror threat level is being raised from "substantial" to "severe" in response to conflicts in Iraq and Syria, Home Secretary Theresa May says.

The new alert level means an attack on the UK is "highly likely", although Mrs May said there was no intelligence to suggest an attack was "imminent".
It is the second highest of five possible UK threat levels.

PM David Cameron said at least 500 people had travelled from the UK "to fight in Syria and potentially Iraq".

Movie: Dead Man's Folly

Another classic from the Queen of Mystery writers. Very enjoyable.
Remember YouTube is sadistic and removes good movies in the shortest possible time.  Watch it sooner than later.

Fog of War .... Did Russia invade Ukraine or did it not? Did UK, USA, France, Australia, Canada and half of EU invade Syria or did they not?

It's all to do with the perception of the beholder.  
Are there Russians fighting alongside the separatists? Check.
Is there Russian-made equipment with the separatists?  Check
So, can we say based on the above two factors that Russia has invaded Ukraine? 
If you said: "Yes"  .... then logically speaking you would have to say the same to the second argument, that being:

There are Brits, Americans, French, Australians, Canadians and citizens from half of EU, fighting alongside the "moderate jihadi opposition" to Assad;
There is plenty of weaponry and assorted supplies benefiting the "moderate jihadi opposition" that's come from UK, USA, France, Australia, Canada and half of EU.
AND ... that would mean that all these aforesaid countries have invaded Syria, right?

But, who gives a shit about logic these days, eh?
This is not saying that an invasion won't happen.  But, so far, at least overtly it has not .... just like in Syria and Iraq.  

I am beginning to like doublespeak ... especially Russia's, their accent sounds better.

From NYTimes:
Ukraine Asserts Russian Invasion and Reinstitutes Draft  
Asserting that Russian soldiers and armaments had crossed into Ukraine to support the separatists, President Petro O. Poroshenko of Ukraine canceled a trip to Turkey on Thursday, and his national security council ordered mandatory conscription for the armed forces.
“Columns of heavy artillery, huge loads of arms and regular Russian servicemen came to the territory of Ukraine from Russia through the uncontrolled border area,” Mr. Poroshenko said at the beginning of an emergency meeting of the Ukrainian Nation Security and Defense Council in Kiev.
Mercenaries, along with regular servicemen, were trying to overrun positions held by the Ukrainian military, he said, according to a statement on his official website.....

And, then we have the case of  "lost in translation"  from what Ukraine's Poroshenko actually said and what the Western media understood it to be.  LOL !

It has been a busy morning: following a substantial surge in Ukraine separatist activity in the past 24 hours, which saw them capture the strategic Sea of Azov port town of Novoazovsk, a move which the NYT classified as "Ukraine Reports Russian Invasion on a New Front", Ukraine has turned on the disinformation spigot to max resulting in a constant verbal, and headline, diarrhea as follows:
So sure was Ukraine that this time (unlike all those previous disinformation launches) Russia has invaded that Anton Herashchenko, adviser to Ukrainian Interior Ministry, actually commented on his Facebook page saying "Invasion of regular Russian army of Putin to Ukraine is an accomplished fact,” Adding that Putin "de-facto places Ukraine on a war-footing at a time when a decree was signed to dissolve parliament."..........

.......But where things once again got surreal, making everyone not only laugh but wonder how the CIA has lost the plotline so badly, was the following "clarification" headline from Reuters, which noticed some rather substantial change in the language on the website of the Ukraine president:
Indeed, instead of explicitly saying a "Russian military invasion has taken place", the website now reads: "I have made a decision to cancel my working visit to the Republic of Turkey due to sharp aggravation of the situation in Donetsk region, particularly in Amvrosiivka and Starobeshevo, as Russian troops were actually brought into Ukraine," the President noted."..............

Obama: "Rooting out a cancer like ISIS won't be easy and it won't be quick"

But, how did the cancer grow, dear Mr.Obama?

This is what happens when Israel bombs Gaza

More intensive blowbacks are formed.  More potential terrorists are born.  More hatred engulfs the entire world.   More potential terrorist attacks here in the West are feared.  Why is it so difficult for the world's supposedly "most intelligent" people to understand that the more they bomb Gaza, the more the hatred for Israel and also for the West because of the support to Israel?  

From FoxNews:
.....The online publication, called “Palestine-Betrayal of the Guilty Conscience Al-Malahem” and put out by the media arm of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, calls for Muslims around the world to follow “the recipe” provided to set off car bombs in crowded venues. It includes a timeline of "selected jihadi operations" that the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which first flagged the slickly-produced latest edition of the terror publication, finds chilling....

......There is a suggested list of targets for lone-wolf, or individually executed, terror attacks, including New York's Times Square, casinos and night clubs in Las Vegas, oil tankers and trains, the Georgia Military College, the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, and General Atomics defense contractor in San Diego......

.......Globally, AQAP calls for the targeting of tourist resorts frequented by Israelis, Britons and Americans....

.....The “Palestine” magazine is a spin-off of AQAP's Inspire magazine, which mainly encourages and instructs jihadi recruits to carry out lone-wolf attack in the West. This new magazine is meant to play upon the recent anti-Israel and anti-U.S. sentiments brought about by the conflict between Hamas and Israel......

Ukraine is breaking up and Novorussia is extending .... so let's look at a 75 year old map just before the last WW

The pro-Russian separatists, with Russia's help by way of weaponry and manpower, are now progressing even further from areas they were controlling until now. The last few days have seen heavy fighting with Ukrainian troops and mercenaries, including US mercenaries,(I hope there were no Canadians) killed in their hundreds, if not thousands.

Lily Rothman writing at Time:
This 75-Year-Old Map  Shows Europe ‘Ready for War’
A portrait of a world days away from combustion

The declarations had not yet come, but on Aug. 28, 1939, Europe already knew war was on its way. On that day, 75 years ago, the armies that would fight what became World War II had gathered.

Just how many soldiers that meant differed by nation, as TIME pointed out to its readers with the map below, which ran in the Sept. 4, 1939 issue. The annotated chart also provides evidence that, no matter how many men were under arms, there was no way for the continent to be entirely ready for what was to follow. In Poland, for example, President Ignacy Moscicki was said to have told Roosevelt that he was willing to negotiate with Germany. By the time Sept. 4 came around — the magazine arrived on stands before then— that willingness had already proved pointless......

Maps of where the wahhabi scum are holding sway and where they intend to go next

Update:  I just had another look at the AP map and had a good laugh. HAHAHAHAHAH.  Look at the chart that says 5% funding to the wahhabi monsters come from Gulf States and 95% from the robberies of banks and oil.  The Mosul banks were never robbed. AP's credibility keeps falling.

First map from AP show the areas the ISIS/ISIL/IS/xyz monsters are supposedly in control of at this moment in time.  Second map, supposedly from the monsters themselves show their future intentions.  From both we can clearly see that Assad's army is depleted and what's left is too far stretched. You can't defeat an enemy that is fighting you from various points of the land and your own Sunni citizens are in league with it.  Assad is probably hoping to hold on to the Shiite, Alawite, Christian and secular Sunni  stronghold of Damascus and areas around it ...  and let the devil reign free outside it.  

The even more intensified plight of Palestinians in Gaza after insane warlord Netanyahu's genocidal actions on helpless citizens and their infrastructure

Collective punishment that Israel metes out on the Gaza strip is one of the most shameful things that this our present world of today witnesses every few years. There can be no excuse for a nation whose military is, supposedly one of the most powerful in the world, to come down so hard on a small area holding 1.8 Million people, almost all of them helpless citizens and a large segment, children under 18 years old.  

The doublespeak from the Israelis and the Israeli supporters here in the West, whether they are from the Jewish diaspora or the Christian segments, is so vomit-inducing, some of us have already become dehydrated with the constant involuntary spewing every time we hear their whines or read their drivel. 

If one is a model citizen of the country one has adopted as one's own away from the "Jewish homeland" should one be so concerned about what's happening in that "homeland"? Moreover, it baffles me how these numbskulls don't realize that the Israeli massacres in Gaza, which result mostly in loss of innocent lives and just a sprinkling of the bad guys, goes on to create everlasting hatred within the hearts of the survivors and Muslims around the world, and that hatred extends from not only hating Jewish Israelis but all Jews everywhere. And, these same numbskulls cry "foul" at  the Jew-hatred being seen lately in the EU and elsewhere. "Why" is a question they won't ask of themselves. The pointing of fingers is always at the Muslims, but never when looking at oneself in the mirror.

Shouldn't one be patriotic to only the Western country one is now a citizen of?  I guess that is not possible for people of Jewish origin holding dual citizenship. That dual-citizenship thing should be abolished.  It's the stuff of traitor-making.  If I was the government,  I would definitely not employ people of dual citizenship to any post within the government body.  In Canada, we even have a leader of one of the three main political parties, the NDP, having his feet in two boats.... a Canadian dinghy and a French yacht.  We are going the way of Britainistan within the next decade or so.  Rules should be equal for each and every citizen. However, because the rules are lax for Jewish citizens, many of whom retain or obtain citizenship to Israel,  there are citizens of other countries too who claim the same privilege.  Yup ...  we have "Canadians" wobbling and rocking away with their feet in two boats.  Probably, millions of them.  Pretty good for Canada's future, eh?

Below are just 8 things from thousands more, the Gazans are gong  through.

Children in Conflict  

8 Things You Need to Know About Gaza

1. Aug. 24 was the first day of school, but most children can’t go back.
The fighting has damaged at least 244 schools. Of those, 25 have been completely destroyed or severely damaged and are now unusable. Other schools can't be used for teaching because they are being used as shelters. More than 280,000 people displaced by the conflict are taking shelter in school buildings.

2. Gaza has one of the highest literacy rates in the region.
The State of Palestine has a 95% adult literacy rate, well above the regional average of 77%. Education is highly valued by families in Gaza.

3. Homes in Gaza get electricity for as little as two hours a day.
Gaza's only power plant has been struck five times since July 8 and is now no longer operating.

4. Gaza’s aquifer is 96% polluted by seawater.
....The recent conflict has damaged wells, pumping stations and sewage treatment plants. UNICEF's response includes installing 14 water access points and helping to repair damaged infrastructure.

5. More than 370,000 children have been directly affected by the conflict.
UNICEF estimates that more than 373,000 children have suffered an injury, the loss of a family member or the destruction of their homes. These children need immediate emotional and psychological support......

6. Gaza is full of unexploded ordnance.

7. UNICEF gets supplies into Gaza through a single crossing.
The Kerem Shalom crossing is the only commercial crossing into Gaza. UNICEF works with authorities on both sides to get lifesaving supplies such as vaccines, drugs for children and hygiene kits into Gaza in the most efficient ways possible, including buying locally.....

8. Youth unemployment is extremely high.

Britishers come to a sad realization: "Too little too late"

Yup!  One has to pay for one's sins sooner than later.  

In the meantime, Canada is importing thousands of Syrians, Libyans, Egyptians, with some places in Canada looking like you are walking through a souk with Arabic speaking shoppers everywhere you look.  I was at a North York mall this past weekend and I could see why retailers will never raise their voices for curbing immigration from the Middle East. The newcomers mean a lot of business for home decor outlets, real estate, rental companies, car agencies, supermarkets,etc. Toronto's retailers are a happy lot, all thanks to the influx of new immigrants. Going by what I see in Toronto, I would presume the same is true in Montreal, Calgary, Vancouver and other big cities of Canada.

What Michel Chossudovksy said a year ago, makes a lot more sense now

If you have been wondering why the recent focus on Syria, wonder no more.  Listen to Michel Chossudovsky's interview here of more than a year ago.  At that time,  the Assad regime had almost defeated the "opposition" of "moderate jihadis" armed and funded by the USA and her allies. That was a big "NO, NO" for the powers-that-be and what we are seeing today, the sudden rise to unpredictable heights of a herebefore almost defeated terrorist group is because that group got additional backing and every help possible to venture into Iraq and rampage around killing anybody and everybody, whether they be soldiers, Shiites, innocent Yazidis and Christians ... it didn't matter, as long as the world got itself in a tizzy  and gave the USA a pass to do to Syria what they had in mind to do to it all along.  

Also, note what Choussudovsky says about the nations involved in the insurgency, how they would have to bear the burden to build up all that has been destroyed .... do you think these rogue nations want to do that? They would rather that the refugees now inside the borders of some of these nations be funded by the world than help Syria to rebuild.  They would rather spend their own money and manpower in destroying Syria.

US Senator John McCain, the Godfather of ISIS/ISIL/IS/xyz ?

As far as my opinion is considered .... YES, he is.  And, with the backing of the president of the USA and probably more than half of the members making up the Senate body.  That's how much rotten to the core the once great nation has become.  It can no longer distinguish good from evil and the sooner the decline and death of this entity the better it will be for the rest of the world.

Below are the first few paragraphs of  a nicely put and very believable article by Thierry Meyssan. Worth a read in its entirety. I like it, but at the same time, I  can't forget that Meyssan also firmly believes (at least he did a few years ago) that a missile hit the Pentagon and not a plane.  After that, I tend to take everything he writes with a grain of salt ..... but this article about McCain's involvement with Abu Bakr al Baghadi the Houdini of Iraq, makes a lot of sense and years from now, if not sooner ... might have a lot of bite.

John McCain, Conductor of the "Arab Spring" and the Caliph 
Everyone has noticed the contradiction of those who recently characterized the Islamic Emirate as "freedom fighters" in Syria and who are indignant today faced with its abuses in Iraq. But if that speech is incoherent in itself, it makes perfect sense in the strategic plan: the same individuals were to be presented as allies yesterday and must be as enemies today, even if they are still on orders from Washington. Thierry Meyssan reveals below US policy through the particular case of Senator John McCain, conductor of the "Arab Spring" and longtime partner of Caliph Ibrahim.

John McCain is known as the leader of the Republicans and unhappy 2008 US presidential candidate. This is, we will see, only the real part of his biography, which serves as a cover to conduct covert actions on behalf of his government.

When I was in Libya during the "Western"attack, I was able to view a report of the foreign intelligence services. It stated that, on February 4, 2011 in Cairo, NATO organized a meeting to launch the "Arab Spring" in Libya and Syria. According to this document, the meeting was chaired by John McCain. The report detailed the list of Libyan participants, whose delegation was led by the No. 2 man of the government of the day, Mahmoud Jibril, who abruptly switched sides at the entrance of the meeting to become the opposition leader in exile. I remember that, among the French delegates present, the report quoted Bernard-Henry Lévy, although officially he had never exercised functions within the French government. Many other personalities attended the symposium, including a large delegation of Syrians living abroad.

Emerging from the meeting, the mysterious Syrian Revolution 2011 Facebook account called for demonstrations outside the People’s Council (National Assembly) in Damascus on February 11. Although this Facebook account at the time claimed to have more than 40,000 followers, only a dozen people responded to its call before the flashes of photographers and hundreds of police. The demonstration dispersed peacefully and clashes only began more than a month later in Deraa. [1]

On February 16, 2011, a demonstration underway in Benghazi, in memory of members of the Islamic Fighting Group in Libya [2] massacred in 1996 in the Abu Selim prison, degenerated into shooting. The next day, a second event, this time in memory of those who died by attacking the Danish consulate during the Muhammad cartoons affair, also degenerated into shooting. At the same time, members of the Islamic Fighting Group in Libya ,coming from Egypt and coordinated by unidentified, hooded individuals, simultaneously attacked four military bases in four different cities. After three days of fighting and atrocities, the rebels launched the uprising of Cyrenaica against Tripolitania [3]; a terrorist attack that the western press falsely presented as a "democratic revolution" against "the regime" of Muammar el-Qaddafi.

On February 22nd, John McCain was in Lebanon. He met members of the Future Movement (the party of Saad Hariri) whom he charged to oversee the transfer of arms to Syria around the MP Okab Sakr [4]. Then, leaving Beirut, he inspected the Syrian border and the selected villages including Ersal, which were used as a basis to back mercenaries in the war to come.

The meetings chaired by John McCain were clearly the trigger point for a long-prepared Washington plan; the plan that would have the UK and France attack Libya and Syria simultaneously, following the doctrine of "leadership from behind" and the annex of the Treaty of Lancaster House of November 2010. [5]

The Illegal Trip to Syria, April 2013

In May 2013, Senator John McCain made his way illegally to near Idleb in Syria via Turkey to meet with leaders of the "armed opposition". His trip was not made public until his return to Washington. [6]

This movement was organized by the Syrian Emergency Task Force, which, contrary to its title, is a Zionist Organization led by a Palestinian employee of AIPAC [7]

In photographs released at that time, one noticed the presence of Mohammad Nour, a spokesman for the Northern Storm Brigade (of the Al-Nosra Front, that is to say, al-Qaeda in Syria), who kidnapped and held 11 Lebanese Shiite pilgrims in Azaz. [8] Asked about his proximity to al-Qaeda kidnappers, the Senator claimed not to know Mohammad Nour who would have invited himself into this photo.

The affair made a great noise and the families of the abducted pilgrims lodged a complaint before the Lebanese judiciary against Senator McCain for complicity in kidnapping. Ultimately, an agreement was reached and the pilgrims were released.

Let’s suppose that Senator McCain had told the truth and that he was abused by Mohammad Nour. The object of his illegal trip to Syria was to meet the chiefs of staff of the Free Syrian Army. According to him, the organization was composed "exclusively of Syrians" fighting for "their freedom" against the "Alouite dictatorship” (sic). The tour organizers published this photograph to attest to the meeting.

If we can see Brigadier General Idriss Salem, head of the Free Syrian Army, one can also see Ibrahim al-Badri (foreground on the left) with whom the senator is talking. Back from the surprise trip, John McCain claimed that all those responsible for the Free Syrian Army were "moderates who can be trusted" (sic).

However, since October 4, 2011, Ibrahim al-Badri (also known as Abu Du’a) was on the list of the five terrorists most wanted by the United States (Rewards for Justice). A premium of up to $ 10 million was offered to anyone who would assist in his capture. [9] The next day, October 5, 2011, Ibrahim al-Badri was included in the list of the Sanctions Committee of the UN as a member of Al Qaeda. [10]

In addition, a month before receiving Senator McCain, Ibrahim al-Badri, known under his nom de guerre as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi,
created the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ÉIIL) – all the while still belonging to the staff of the very "moderate" Free Syrian Army. He claimed as his own the attack on the Taj and Abu Ghraib prisons in Iraq, from which he helped between 500 and 1,000 jihadists escape who then joined his organization. This attack was coordinated with other almost simultaneous operations in eight other countries. Each time, the escapees joined the jihadist organizations fighting in Syria. This case is so strange that Interpol issued a note and requested the assistance of the 190 member countries. [11]..........
