World War III ..... September 30

Few extracts from Mindfriedo's sitrep at the Saker site:
Short Analysis  
-Daash and allied Sunni fighters take over a few villages to the north of Fallujah 
-One of the towns taken over is Sijir, close to Saqlawiyah Military Base
-The Iraqi Army sends in 400 men from the 3rd Brigade, an elite SWAT unit, and members from the Ashaib Ahl Al Haq (League of the Righteous) to take back Sijir. 
-Stiff resistance by Daash forces the fighters back to Saqlawiyah base; there are now 800 to a 1000 men at the base and they are running short of supplies, food and ammunition.....

....-Entrapped soldiers make desperate calls to military commanders who promise relief and air support but nothing arrives. Senior commanders refer to repeated requests being made by soldiers as unnecessary "whining" in the face of attacks
-Daash fighters dressed in Iraqi Army Uniform send in Humvees in a suicide attack. The soldiers guarding the base are reported to have opened the gates assuming the Humvees to be relief supplies. Huge suicide attacks are followed on by a heavy ambush. Daash overruns the base and only a pocket of soldiers are reported to be holding out.......

.......-Daash claims to have killed 300 Iraqi Soldiers, captured two M1A1 Abrams tanks and a Russian tank in addition to other supplies that it looted from the base
-Abadi orders an enquiry and Iraqi Army and Air Force Commanders are reportedly suspended but MPs are demanding prosecution and calling Saqlawiyah Iraq's second Spyker
-The government is claiming that Daash used chlorine gas and is using this as an excuse for the base having fallen .......

Ukraine, Novorussia
IMO, destroyers of historical monuments are to be despised. These Ukrainians reminded me of what the Taliban did to the Buddhist statues in Afghanistan and what the ISIS/ISIL/IS/xyz are doing to the historical monuments in Syria.  Disgraceful. This was probably the largest statue of Lenin destroyed. I believe the mindlessness of these thugs have destroyed many other monuments which they associate with Russia. Madness!

From Bloomberg:
Fighting continued in Ukraine between government forces and separatists one day after the country’s military suffered its worst casualties since signing a truce earlier this month.

Separatists tried to storm the government-held Donetsk airport twice in the past 24 hours, Ukraine military spokesman Andriy Lysenko told reporters today in Kiev. Rebels shelled Ukrainian army positions with Grad multiple rocket launchers in at least four locations, the military said on Facebook. Nine Ukrainian soldiers were killed in attacks, including a separatist tank assault on an armored personnel carrier near Donetsk airport, the government said yesterday.....

Russia's FM Lavrov gives an interview after his UN appearance:

The wonderful world of Ukraine's politicians from the loony bin

The first vid embedded in the tweet is about an incident in Odessa. From what I can piece together from the awful YouTube translation, this infighting is between the right sector party (read that as Nazi sympathizers) and some other party that the right sector consider to be either pro-Russian or something. This is all to do with the upcoming elections, of course. Here's another vid of the same incident    and according to the description the man being beaten  is "people's deputy Nestor Shufrich."

The next two vids show how the members of political parties, even high ranking members from the various  parties, behave worse than the MPs in Muslim countries. Politicians and their supporters have a habit of throwing  MPs from opposition parties into garbage bins.  These kind of incidents are on the rise in Kiev.  I have seen vids where hooligans lift up government officials from their office chairs and take them right out of the building and dump them in garbage bins.  It does not take long for such unruliness to escalate into uncontrollable brutality.

AND, into this mess of a country, our warlord PM Stephen Harper and his mini warlord FM John Baird, have in their almighty woolly bully wisdom decided to give every support to the thugs in Ukraine's mad government asylum.

Here's more  on the shameful behaviour as shown in the vid below.  According to the article the man is an ex-Minister from the earlier regime before the present coup government took over.

Below yet another MP gets dumped in a dumpster.

The Russell Tribunal on Israel's genocidal war crimes in Gaza .... Part Three

Too painful to listen to but definitely an eye-opener.... especially on the oft repeated claim by Israel and Israel's supporters that Hamas uses Gazans as human shields.  The truth is exactly the opposite.  It is the  IDF using Gazan children and civilians as human shields.  

Below is testimony from Ivan Karakashian, Advocacy Unit Coordinator at Defense for Children International.
He tells of a 16 yr old who was stripped naked by the IDF and used as a human shield for 5 long days. The boy was starved .... no food, no water and no sleep. 
This is one of the most horrifying testimonies given at the Tribunal. The leaders of the Western countries along with their governments, which included even the opposition parties of those countries, stood by Israel while Israel committed these atrocities knowing they had the approval and permission of the West.  The deliberate targeting of civilians cannot be forgiven and should never be overlooked.  

AND, according to the witness below, Dr. Mohammad Abou-Arab, a doctor at the  Al Shifa Hospital, ambulances and medical personnel were deliberately targeted.  He also mentioned something about "Oslo agreement" does not allow shelters to be built in Gaza.  I didn't understand that bit. 

Following is part of his testimony:
“One ambulance worker shot in the head and bled to death while fellow workers were told if they tried to assist him, they would be killed too. Another worker burned to death in his ambulance after a missile attack against it – his colleague was severely injured in the attack, left with life-altering burn injuries. We are talking about Gaza firefighters, police officers, ambulance workers and other emergency services workers being routinely shot at by snipers and missiles by Israeli military. Anyone who knows anything about Palestinian society knows that no Palestinian would use a child or family as a human shield. Israel however routinely used Palestinians as human shields throughout this operation and those prior.”

When Christians kneel in prayer, do they look like they are opening their butts for penetration?

That's the difference between the dignity of a Christian praying to his God and  Muslims farting and opening their aholes all ready and willing  for homosexual entry up their behinds when they call upon their evil incarnate.
Yes.... they need to be told how disgusting they look when in prayer.  Dear Muslims, please don't pray in public ... your pose makes us want to puke all over you.  Pray all you want, but please,please,PLEASE do it behind closed doors.

From Yahoo:
Chiefs player Husain Abdullah gets penalized  after kneeling in Muslim prayer

NFL officiating guru Mike Pereira once said he'd never throw a flag on a player who knelt in the end zone in prayer because he "didn't want to get struck by lightning."
That same belief wasn't shared by the crew working Monday night's Chiefs-Patriots game. 
In a move that is sure to generate some discussion, Husain Abdullah of the Chiefs was flagged 15 yards after kneeling in the end zone in Muslim prayer after scoring a touchdown off an interception of Tom Brady. The unsportmanlike conduct penalty Abdullah received sparked a quick outrage on Twitter where it was noted that plenty of Christian players mark their scores with a sign of deference, reflection or tribute to their higher power. .....

World War 3 news ..... September 29 .... Part 2

USA, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Kurdistan, Lebanon, Jordan

Syrian Foreign Minister at the UN 

From Reuters:
U.S.-led air strikes hit grain silos and other targets in Islamic State-controlled territory in northern and eastern Syria overnight, killing civilians and wounding militants, a group monitoring the war said on Monday.

The aircraft may have mistaken the mills and grain storage areas in the northern Syrian town of Manbij for an Islamic State base, said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. There was no immediate comment from Washington......

Although Turkey seem to have deployed a dozen tanks or so to a part of its long border with Syria, it remains to be seen if this nation that has been facilitating jihadis to walk through their borders into Syria and letting jihadis wearing their black flag T-shirts in full view of nervous Turkish  public transit commuters in Istanbul,  will actually fight the ISIS/ISIL/IS/xyz they helped create.  I will tell you right here and now that they will pretend to fight them but it will be a half-hearted effort.  Turkish soldiers are better at targeting their own citizens, especially those who show a  secular bend. 

From PressTVIran:
Turkey has deployed a number of tanks and armored vehicles to an area near the Syrian border as the ISIL Takfiri group intensifies its movements in the region.

According to reports on Monday, at least 15 Turkish tanks took position in the border town of Mursitpinar which lies just northwest of the Syrian border town of Ain al-Arab, which is also known as Kobani to the Kurds......

Doublespeak from the USA as usual. I would rather believe the Iraqi officials  than the lying Obama who keeps insisting that there won't be boots on the ground. 
From GlobalResearch:
Iraqi officials say   that the United States is due to send 13,000 soldiers to Iraq, despite its claims of complete military withdrawal from the country.

The vice president of the local council of Iraq’s Saladin Province made the announcement on Thursday, adding that the troops, along with their vehicles, would be stationed at the Speicher airfield in the city of Tikrit, located 140 kilometers (87 miles) northwest of the capital, Baghdad.
Washington has already sent 1,600 troops to Iraq, most recently on September 10, when an additional 475 soldiers were deployed to the country. The US claims most of them serve as advisers to Iraqi and Kurdish forces or provide security for the US embassy and the international airport in the Iraqi capital.

Washington has also been conducting airstrikes against the positions of the Takfiri ISIL militants in Iraq.
The Iraqi official, meanwhile, confirmed that there are dozens of military advisors on the ground in the province.
The deployment comes as US President Barack Obama said earlier this month that he would not pursue another ground war in Iraq after US troops’ pullout from the country in 2011......

This vid throws a lot of sunshine on Obama's and McCain's beloveds in Syria, the "moderate jihadis."

From Reuters:
The Lebanese army said on Thursday one person was killed and two wounded during a search for suspected militants at refugee camps near the border with Syria.

Soldiers shot at three people on a motorbike who were trying to set fire to parts of a refugee camp during the raids, killing one and wounding the other two, it said.

After dark, the army fired artillery at suspected militants who tried to infiltrate from the border zone, apparently setting off land mines as they did so, a security source said. There were an unknown number of casualties among the militants....
.....Security sources said the number detained in the past two weeks had reached about 450.....

Somewhere in Syria, Allah Akbars are shitting all over themselves

From RTNews:
Retaliation for US-led airstrikes in Syria  will follow, Al-Qaeda offshoot vows
The US-led air campaign against terrorists in Syria amounts to a war against Islam, Al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front group has claimed, promising retaliation against those states involved in the bombing of the ‘caliphate’ instead of targeting Assad forces.

“We are in a long war. This war will not end in months nor years,” group spokesman Abu Firas al-Suri said as cited by Reuters. “It's not a war against Nusra Front, it's a war against Islam.”
Dozens of Al-Nusra Front fighters were reportedly killed after the anti-ISIS coalition launched the first round of its airstrikes on Tuesday, and the audio message released on Saturday is the group’s first reaction to attacks....

I don't know if this site is supposed to be like the satirical Onion. But, on the other hand, nothing surprises or shocks me about certain leaders of the world.
From AWDNews:
The so-called Islamic State   in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) intends to inaugurate its first diplomatic mission in Istanbul in order to provide consular services for all who wish to join the extremist group in Iraq, reported Turkish daily Aydinlik as saying.

Abu-Omar Al-Tunisi, the ISIS de facto head of foreign relations issued a statement, saying that the Islamic Caliphate is determined to launch its first diplomatic mission in a friendly and Muslim country. He further noted that the ISIS hopes that the bilateral relations with Ankara will witness more developments under the aegis of newly-elected president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

ISIS also claims that its consulate in Istanbul will pay the hospital bills of all wounded Islamist militants who traveled to turkey to receive medical treatment.

CHP (Republican People's Party) , a leading Turkish opposing party issued a communique condemning Turkish government decision to allow ISIS to open a legal diplomatic office  in Çankaya - the central and elegant metropolitan district of the city of Istanbul........

Turkey helped create the terrorist jihadi army in their desire to oust Assad. The influx of refugees in Turkey is what Turkey should have expected. One pays for one sins .... sooner than later. 

The Russell Tribunal on Israel's genocide and war crimes in Gaza .... Part Two

Part One is here.   

Even though the Russell Tribunal, at this point in world history, does not carry the kind of weight that the The Hague tribunal does, everything that is stated in these sessions will go down in world history and when there's a shift in world powers (that's going to happen within a decade or less) the Russell Tribunal's rulings will become as powerful and as "legal" as any other powerful instrument of law.

Part Two:
Deliberate hits at factories and manufacturing plants in Gaza were well planned to destroy the Gazan economy, and yet the Israelis and the supporters of Israel in the West, blame the Palestinians for not improving their economy and their standard of living. The doublespeak and the doublethink from the Jewish Israelis and their supporters here in the West is straight out of Orwell's 1984.

220 factories were deliberately hit and destroyed by Israel, the worst nation on Earth. In my eyes, Saudi Arabia has fallen to 2nd worst nation,  Israel has taken the top spot.  

The best news ever!

A citizen of Saudi Arabia, residing in the UK, has started a movement called Arabian Peninsula Liberation which aims to wrest power from the wahhabi house of Saud.  How far will he and the movement get?  That remains to be seen.  Will the USA let him overthrow the putrid King and the 1000+ princes, almost all of whom are responsible for the funding of extremist Islamic schools and the radicalization of the Sunni youth?  Also, he might be as huge a wahhabi himself as any other murderous wahhabi.  I suspect the MB is involved in the APL..... let's wait and see.  

From PressTVIran:
A former Saudi army officer has announced the formation of a movement aimed at unseating the Al Saud dynasty in Saudi Arabia.

In a video message, Dakheel al-Qahtani declared “the establishment of the Arabian Peninsula liberation movement,” noting that it “aims to begin a revolution in the Arabian Peninsula in order to topple the government of Al Saud…[and] to uproot their rule.”
He also called on the people in the kingdom to begin a popular uprising against the regime “for the sake of a nation destroyed by Al Saud corruption.”
Qahtani further denounced the Saudi regime’s “dirty” foreign policies which “are working against the interests of the nation.”......

World War 3 news ..... September 29 ...... Part 1

The present prez of Libya is calling for "sanctions" but  against whom or what is not clear.  Is he reluctant to say Qatar or Turkey or Saudi Arabia?  This behaviour is typical Arab behaviour .... all of them cower in fear of Saudi Arabia and other great friends of the USA in that region lest they offend the most powerful country on Earth.
From AP:
Libya Pleads For Help In Battling Terror Groups
 Libya pleaded with the international community on Saturday to help it stand up to Islamist-allied militias that have taken control of government buildings, saying the United Nations must impose sanctions or risk a terrorist expansion throughout North Africa.
Ageila Saleh Eissa, president of the House of Representatives, addressed the annual U.N. General Assembly of world leaders after weeks of fighting among rival militias in Libya forced nearly a quarter-million people to flee their homes.
"From this podium, I say that turning a blind eye to terrorism in Libya is deemed unacceptable," Eissa said.
"The international community has either to stand with the elected, legitimate authorities and (impose sanctions) or say very clearly that the Libyans have to face terrorism alone," Eissa said. "Hence, the international community must withstand the effects of terrorism expansion in North Africa and the Sahel region."......

From DailySabah:
457 Turkish workers reported trapped amid armed clashes for the last five days at the airport of Ghat, located in Fezzan region of Southwestern Libya.
It was reported on Sunday that the workers are facing food and water shortages, and their money, passports and cellphones were seized by armed militants.
Some workers were able to communicate with their families in Turkey through text messages.....

Russia to fully renew nuclear forces by 2020 – official
Russia is set to renew the country’s strategic nuclear forces by 100 percent, not 70 percent as previously announced, according to Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.

"The formation of the technical basis for strategic nuclear forces is going at a faster rate, and in fact, we will renew not 70 percent of the SNF, but 100 percent," Rogozin told Rossiya TV channel.

The deputy premier, who’s responsible for the Russian defense industry, also declared that in 2015 the army and the navy are to switch 30 percent of their weapons to "cutting edge" technology, and by 70 percent in 2020.........

From RIA:
Members of the Donbas volunteer battalion, created to take part in a special military operation in eastern Ukraine, will be trained by retired US instructors, the commander of the battalion, Semen Semenchenko, said Monday.
"[I] Concluded an agreement yesterday [Sunday] on the training of soldiers and officers of the Donbas battalion by mobile groups of instructors from the United States, who are currently not part of the active military personnel. They will follow the traditional training system, the training system of the United States Navy SEALs and the Delta Force. Preparations will start in 10 days," Semenchenko wrote on his Facebook page.....

Al Qaeda-linked militants in Yemen say fire rocket toward U.S. embassy

 An al Qaeda splinter group said it launched a rocket toward the U.S. embassy in Sanaa on Saturday, wounding several guards, to retaliate for a purported U.S. drone strike in a northern province of Yemen the day before.
The U.S. State Department said it had no indication that the embassy was the target of the attack and that none of its staff were wounded.

The rocket landed 200 meters from the heavily fortified embassy, hitting members of the Yemeni special police force who guard the site. At least two were wounded, police said.
The attacker fired the rocket from a car using a M72 light anti-tank weapon before speeding away, a police source told Reuters..........

Chicago Control Centre sabotage

I had to search "sabotage" + Chicago airport, to find what I was looking for. The MSM will never learn to tell it like it is .... NEVER!  Who are the losers?  It's always We the People who depend on these liars for our information.  It was apparent, the moment Brian Howard was found in the Aurora Control Centre basement slashing away at his throat  with a fire raging behind him that he had sabotaged the equipment. And that was in the wee hours of Friday morning, yet it took more than 60+ hours for the MSM to use the word "sabotage."

And, if you want to know more about Brian Howard, read the comments at this Guardian article on the topic. It's wasn't difficult to figure out that he was ex-defence forces.  The mental health issues found in that segment of our population are mind-blowing.

From CBSChicagoLocal:
Senator Dick Durbin Calls For Probe Of Air Center Sabotage
U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) says he wants some answers after the Aurora Control Center sabotage on Friday.
Durbin says he will ask inspectors general at the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration to investigate whether there was a security breach when 36-year-old Brian Howard entered the building with a black suitcase.

“I think from this point forward, the inspection and the vetting of these personnel has got to be a lot better,” Durbin said.
Brian Howard, 36, of Naperville, who had access to the control center in suburban Aurora via a swipe card, entered around 5 a.m. Friday, and about 30 minutes later posted a suicide note on Facebook, according to a federal criminal complaint.

Minutes later, someone at the facility called 911 to report the fire. A relative who saw the Facebook post also alerted authorities. Paramedics followed a trail of blood past a gas can, two knives and a lighter and found the suspect slashing his throat, the complaint said. He also had cuts to his arms.

Durbin said he is grateful that the FAA was able to get all planes on the ground safely. He said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta told him that 23 of 29 computer racks were damaged, and the FAA said Sunday that it decided to replace the entire central communications network at the center.
“Thank God nobody lost their lives, but it could have happened in this circumstance,” Durbin said.
Sen. Mark Kirk said Saturday that he wanted an immediate review of the FAA screening process at the site, and a report within 30 days outlining future changes.

On Sunday, 550 flights were canceled at O’Hare and 50 at Midway. At the height of the travel misery Friday, more than 2,000 flights in and out of the airports were canceled, disrupting travel nationwide.
FAA spokeswoman Elizabeth Cory said improvements were expected on Monday, although the system would not be fully functional........

The Testimonies and the Findings of the Russell Tribunal on Israel's war crimes in Gaza

Part One:
I have posted here in this Part One, only the few of the vids that I have already seen of the people called to give witness before the Russell Tribunal. According to one of the witnesses, Dr. Mads Gilbert,  75% of those who wanted to attend the Russell Tribunal held in Brussels were blocked by Israel from leaving the open air prison Gaza. 

From RussellTribunalonPalestine:
Russell Tribunal finds evidence of incitement to genocide crimes against humanity in Gaza

September 25th 2014
For Immediate Release

The Russell Tribunal on Palestine’s Emergency Session on Israel’s Operation Protective Edge held yesterday in Brussels has found evidence of war crimes, crimes against humanity, crimes of murder, extermination and persecution and also incitement to genocide.

The Jury [1] reported: ‘The cumulative effect of the long-standing regime of collective punishment in Gaza appears to inflict conditions of life calculated to bring about the incremental destruction of the Palestinians as a group in Gaza.’

‘The Tribunal emphasises the potential for a regime of persecution to become genocidal in effect, In light of the clear escalation in the physical and rhetorical violence deployed in respect of Gaza in the summer of 2014, the Tribunal emphasises the obligation of all state parties to the 1948 Genocide Convention ‘to take such action under the Charter of the United Nations as they consider appropriate for the prevention and suppression of acts of genocide.’

The Jury heard evidence from eyewitnesses to Israeli attacks during the Gaza war 2014 including journalists Mohammed Omer, Max Blumenthal, David Sheen, Martin Lejeune, Eran Efrati and Paul Mason, as well as surgeons Mads Gilbert, Mohammed Abou Arab, Genocide Expert Paul Behrens, Col Desmond Travers and Ivan Karakashian, Head of Advocacy and Defence for Children International.

In terms of the crime of incitement to genocide, the tribunal received evidence ‘demonstrating a vitriolic upswing in racist rhetoric and incitement’ during the summer of 2014. ‘The evidence shows that such incitement manifested across many levels of Israeli society, on both social and traditional media, from football fans, police officers, media commentators, religious leaders, legislators, and government ministers.’
The Tribunal also found evidence of the following war crimes:

Willful killing

Extensive destruction of property not justified by military necessity

Intentionally directing attacks against a civilian population and civilian objects

Disproportionate use of force

Attacks against buildings dedicated to religion and education

The use of Palestinians as human shields

Employing weapons, projectiles, and material and methods of warfare which are of a nature to cause superfluous injury or unnecessary suffering which are inherently indiscriminate

The use of violence to spread terror among the civilian population

The Tribunal further stated: ‘It is recognised that in a situation where patterns of crimes against humanity are perpetrated with impunity, and where direct and public incitement to genocide is manifest throughout society, it is very conceivable that individuals or the state may choose to exploit the conditions in order to perpetrate the crime of genocide...........

Oh...oh ! Now USA goes starting trouble for China in Hong Kong?

I am gonna bet on it. China should throw out all the NGOs. NGOs is another word for spies who start upheavals in countries that are targeted by the USA and her allies for degradation. The most recent ongoing examples are Syria, Ukraine and Venezuela  and before that the various countries of the Middle East and North Africa.

Another sure sign that this Hong Kong stuff is American-made is how the MSM is reporting the demonstrations. ...."pro-democracy protesters."   Now, where did we hear that term before??? HAHAHAHAHHA

Fool me once... okay.
Fool me twice... okay.
Fool me a few more times .... okay
But try fooling me after the doublespeak and doublethink mess in Syria .... NEVER!

From BBC:
Hong Kong police have used tear gas to disperse thousands of pro-democracy protesters near the government complex, after a week of escalating tensions.

Dozens of demonstrators were arrested, with hundreds vowing to stay put to continue the protest.

Protesters want the Chinese government to scrap rules allowing it to vet Hong Kong's top leader in the 2017 poll.

Hong Kong Chief Executive CY Leung said the demonstration was "illegal" and elections would go ahead as planned.

China has also condemned the protest, and offered "its strong backing" to the Hong Kong government.....

This man is talking about present day Israel, not South Africa of the apartheid years

Japan's Mount Ontake volcano erupts without warning

A couple of news outlets are reporting that some hikers who were in the wrong place, wrong time are missing, presumed dead. However, those deaths are not confirmed.

From Reuters:
More than 500 Japanese military and police set out on Sunday to search the peak of a volcano popular with hikers a day after its sudden eruption trapped hundreds on the mountain for hours, amid conflicting reports about missing and injured climbers.

Japanese media said seven people were reported to be unconscious, possibly buried in ash, as Mount Ontake continued to spew smoke and ash into the sky, while local officials said they were trying to confirm the whereabouts of 32 hikers.

Late on Saturday, Japanese media reported that one woman was dead but that was later withdrawn. At least 40 people were injured, including several with broken bones, officials said.

"It's very hard to know what's happening on the mountain now and things could change," said one official with the government of Nagano prefecture, one of two prefectures straddled by the 3,067 meters (10,062 feet) Ontake.

Hundreds of people, including children, were stranded on the peak after it erupted without warning just before noon on Saturday, sending ash pouring down the slope for more than 3 km (2 miles.) Most made their way down that evening but some 30 were still stranded on Sunday morning........

BRICS news last few weeks

From Bloomberg:
Brazil Goes Stumping at the UN  
With the Brazilian presidential race in its final days, and President Dilma Rousseff gunning for reelection, the world is her stump. This week, she took the campaign to First Avenue in Manhattan, where, in shimmering blue and a power bouffant, she hailed the nations, with a nod and a wink to the constituents back home.

Not that her address to the 69th General Assembly was especially moving. As an orator, Rousseff makes a fine technocrat. Yes, she made the obligatory nod to the demands of emerging nations to reform global governance, such as the United Nations Security Council, where Brazil has been angling for a permanent seat.

She took a ritual poke at powers that would bomb enemies instead of negotiating for peace and understanding. Then she scolded the rich world for fumbling the global financial order, apres Lehman Brothers, a crisis she said that Brazil finessed ("Brazil created 12 million jobs") as everyone else issued pink slips............

An extract from summary of speech of Brazilian Prez at UN
On the Israeli-Palestinian crisis Ms. Rousseff deplored the recent “tragic events” in Gaza and the disproportionate use of force that affected civilians, especially women and children, and reiterated her country’s support for a two-State solution, with Palestine and Israel living side by side in security and within internationally recognized borders.

She also condemned “the systematic massacre of the Syrian people; the tragic national destruction of Iraq; the serious insecurity in Libya; the conflicts in the Sahel; and the clashes in Ukraine.”.....

Modi Wins $20 Billion Pledge From Xi Amid Border Flare-Up
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi won a pledge from Chinese President Xi Jinping to invest $20 billion as the leaders sought to adjust a lopsided trade relationship and resolve a flare-up on their disputed border.

Leaders of the world’s two most populous countries today announced a five-year plan in which China would invest $20 billion to help reduce India’s largest trade deficit with any single country. China will also help set up industrial parks in the Indian states of Maharashtra and Gujarat, which Modi ran before taking power in May.

“We agreed that our economic relations do not do justice to our potential,” Modi said at a joint briefing with Xi in New Delhi today. Modi said he received assurances that China would take steps to address a worsening trade balance between the nations and improve market access.............

From BRICS Post:
China has assured West African nations  that it is committed to assisting them in their fight against the deadly Ebola outbreak, which the World Health Organization said has now killed more than 3,000 people. More than 6,300 have been infected.
“The Chinese government has provided instantly drugs, medical equipment and other disease prevention and relief materials to Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea-Bissau,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told delegates on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.

He said that the 170 medical professionals dispatched by Beijing to afflicted areas since the outbreak was first reported in March “work round the clock to help people” who have contracted the disease.
Last week, the Chinese government announced a new aid package of 200 million yuan (about $32.54 million) for West African countries to combat Ebola.
This is in addition to the 230 million yuan sent by China earlier to the four worst affected countries of Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria............

From Xinhuanet:
Chinese, Russian FMs meet on closer ties, major issues  
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi held talks with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov here on Friday to discuss the development of closer ties between their two countries and major international issues.
Wang recalled that Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin met in Dushanbe not long ago and jointly took part in the first China-Russia-Mongolia trilateral summit as well as the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which all yielded important results.
Both countries should fully implement the consensus reached by the leaders, Wang said during talks with Lavrov on the sidelines of the annual high-level debate of the U.N. General Assembly......

From IndiaToday:
Beijing is understood to be  keen on investing 100 billion dollars in the country in the next five years. Xi's big-ticket investments coincide with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's dream of high-speed trains, smart cities, roads and ports, and mega infrastructure and power projects.

India and China will explore the road ahead for Gujarat leading the manufacturing hub project, on the lines of development in Guandong. Two industrial parks - one each in Gandhinagar and Pune - are expected to be announced during this highprofile visit. The Chinese automobile industry is keen to make its presence in Pune and will be exploring options.

China wants to invest big time in bullet trains and other high-speed trains (150-160 km/hr plus), lay the track, invest in automation system and also work on the Metro train system in many of the 50 cities where MRTS (Mass Rapid Transit System) projects are a part of Modi's dream.

The Asian giant seeks to invest in ports, energy sector and also move forward on a key Modi government project - interlinking of rivers and dredging. China, according to sources, has attractive plans on projects close to the prime minister's heart.

From BRICS Post:
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi  in his address to the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday vowed that New Delhi will work towards strengthening the United Nations central role.
“No one country can run the world… pitch for UN, multilateralism,” said Modi days ahead of his bilateral meeting with US President Barack Obama.
The US Congress on Thursday has ordered a second probe by the US International Trade Commission into India’s “unfair” trade practices, specifically targeting any new policy changes initiated by the new Indian government that was sworn in in May.

Modi also hit back at criticism over India’s blocking of a global trade deal saying that multilateral trade agreements must take into account interests of all stakeholders.
“When we craft agreements on international trade we should accommodate each other’s concerns and interests,” said Modi in New York.

A possible landmark WTO trade deal collapsed earlier this year over objections raised by India, which was seeking to bolster farm protections. India wants to continue with its food security subsidies without attracting sanctions.
At the UNGA, Modi also echoed the Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff’s call for urgent reforms of the UN Security Council to ensure that it remains relevant and effective in dealing with present challenges.......

Russia Discovers Massive Arctic Oil Field   Which May Be Larger Than Gulf Of Mexico
In a dramatic stroke of luck for the Kremlin, this morning there is hardly a person in the world who is happier than Russian president Vladimir Putin because overnight state-run run OAO Rosneft announced it has discovered what may be a treasure trove of black oil, one which could boost Russia's coffers by hundreds of billions if not more, when a vast pool of crude was discovered in the Kara Sea region of the Arctic Ocean, showing the region has the potential to become one of the world’s most important crude-producing areas, arguably bigger than the Gulf Of Mexico. The announcement was made by Igor Sechin, Rosneft’s chief executive officer, who spent two days sailing on a Russian research ship to the drilling rig where the find was unveiled today.....

....For a sense of how big the spoils are we go to another piece by Bloomberg, which tells us that "Universitetskaya, the geological structure being drilled, is the size of the city of Moscow and large enough to contain more than 9 billion barrels, a trove worth more than $900 billion at today’s prices.".....

From the Summary of speech given at the UNGA by Russia's FM Sergey Lavrov.
Sergey V Lavrov, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, said that the United States-led Western alliance that portrayed itself as a champion of democracy in fact acted from the direct opposite position and rejected the democratic principle of sovereign equality of States.  That alliance was trying to decide for everyone what was good and what was evil.  The United States Administration had openly declared what it believed to be its right to unilateral use of force anywhere to uphold its own interests.  Military interference had become the norm.

The sustainability of the international system had been severely shaken by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) bombardment of the then-Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, intervention in Iraq, attacks against Libya and the failure of operations in Afghanistan, he said.  It was only due to diplomatic efforts that the aggression against Syria was prevented in 2013.  There was an impression that the goal of various "colour revolutions" and other projects to change unsuitable regimes was to provoke chaos and instability.  Today, Ukraine had fallen victim to such an arrogant policy.  The situation there had revealed the remaining deep-rooted systemic flaws of the existing architecture in the Euro-Atlantic area.  The West had embarked upon the course towards "vertical structuring of humanity", tailored to its own "hardly inoffensive" standards.

The United States and the European Union supported the coup d'état in Ukraine and reverted to outright justification of any acts by the self-proclaimed Kyiv authorities, he said.  Those authorities had opted for suppression by force of the Ukrainian people, who had rejected attempts to impose an unconstitutional way of life on the entire country, and who wanted to defend their rights to their native language and culture.  It was precisely the aggressive assault on those rights that propelled the population of Crimea to take destiny into its own hands and make a choice in favour of self-determination.  Attempts to distort the truth and to hide the facts behind "blanket accusations" had been undertaken at all stages of the Ukrainian crisis.  The Russian Federation was sincerely interested in restoring peace in "the neighbouring country".  The ceasefire agreement signed by Presidents Petro Poroshenkoand Vladimir Putin had created an opening to resolve the situation.

As a condition for establishing diplomatic relations with the then-Soviet Union in 1933, the United States Government had demanded that Moscow guarantee non-interference in the United States’ domestic affairs and not take any actions aimed at changing the United States’ political or social order, he said.  At that time, Washington, D.C., feared a "revolutionary virus", and the guarantees it sought were put on record, on the basis of reciprocity.  Perhaps, it now made sense to return to that topic and reproduce that demand of the United States Government on a universal scale.  The policy of ultimatums and the philosophy of supremacy and domination did not meet the requirements of the twenty-first  century, and ran counter to the objective process of development of a polycentric, democratic world order.....

Nothing much happening with South Africa, economy-wise.  All that comes up as news out of South Africa is their delight in prosecuting a white blade runner for the murder of his white girlfriend.

Most revolting military strategy conference at University of Chicago

After listening to this man and the kind of people who were in his audience,  I am feeling sick, sick, sick.  This, like no other vid I have ever seen before establishes, at least as far as I am concerned, that America has the most number of warlords on planet Earth.  These ghouls have made the nation into a war machine, nothing more, nothing less. The country lives like a vampire sucking the life-blood of people around the globe. No wonder America is so hated.  There are many other vids from the same conference but I have had enough of this blood lust shown so shamelessly by these American warmongers.  Ugh!
How can there be peace on Earth if America plots and plans how and where to attack next?

Those whom the gods would destroy, they first make incestuous

Europe is truly lost in every sense of the word. I am not surprised that Germany might go the incestuous way, after all Germany like the rest of Europe already has a big Muslim population which is deep into incest. 

For the present moment in time, the disgusting notion has been shelved. However, once a maggoty idea like this one seeps out of Pandora's box, there are many minions of Lord Evil to keep bringing it to the front burners. Wait and see. Especially, keep a look out for how Hollywood will come up with even more movies showing incestuous relationships to make it all look fine and perfectly normal. They did it with homophobia and transexuality.
The vid is from 7 years ago.

From LifeSiteNews:
Decriminalize incest, says German gvmt’s ethics council.  

A German advisory council on ethics has told the government it should decriminalize incest between consenting adults. But Chancellor Angela Merkel’s ruling Christian Democrats have wasted no time in rejecting the advice.

On Wednesday the National Ethics Council voted, by a two-to-one margin, to call for the decriminalization of incest. “Criminal law is not the appropriate means to preserve a social taboo,” the council explained in a statement. “The fundamental right of adult siblings to sexual self-determination is to be weighed more heavily than the abstract idea of protection of the family.”

Many might deem the “fundamental right…to sexual self-determination” considerably more of an abstraction than “protection of the family,” including both judges and politicians.

But the ethics council argued that because incest was rare in Germany though illegal (several news reports cited a study by the Max Planck Institute claiming two to four percent of Germans have had incestuous relations), it would remain rare if legalized, and did not need a law to suppress it......

.....This idea that children should be free of sexual exploitation not only by parents but by brothers and sisters, relying on them for protection and support, apparently did not occur to most of the experts.

However, it did occur to the judges in the case that led to the ethics council’s consideration of incest.  This involved brother and sister Patrick Stuebing and Susan Karolewski, who had had four children together, two of whom are disabled, before a court jailed the brother and removed all but the youngest from the sister. In 2012, the brother lost an appeal to the European Human Rights Council.

The German court stated: “Incestuous connections lead to an overlap of family relationships and social roles and thus to a disturbance of a family bereft of [clear] assignments. … Children of an incestuous relationship have great difficulty finding their place in the family structure and building relationships of trust with their next caregivers. The vital function of the family for the human community … is crucially disturbed if its ordered structure is shaken by incestuous relations.”

As for the government that the ethicists purport to advise, Germany’s Christian Democrats, it rejected the recommendation. “The abolition of the offense of incest between siblings would be the wrong signal,” said spokesperson Elisabeth Winkelmeier-Becker. “Eliminating the threat of punishment against incestuous acts within families would run counter to the protection of undisturbed development for children.”....

World War III news .... September 27

The first vid below is a great example showing how the rise of ISIS/ISIL/IS/xyz in the Muslim countries will continue to grow no matter how many millions of bombs the West and allies drop on it hoping to defeat or even to degrade the movement. The vid shows what happened when peace loving secular students of the Istanbul University had a gathering protesting the terrorist army. Supporters of the terrorist army besieged the university halls and terrorized the students. See the students retreating with the soon-to-be new recruits of ISIS/ISIL/IS/xyz running after them.  
Bottom line: For every intelligent, peaceful, secular Muslim or non-Muslim in a Muslim nation,  there are 100 violent potential terror army recruits and probably 500 or more terror army sympathizers. The West involving itself in this mess is helping ISIS/ISIL/IS/xyz create an even bigger movement. 

So .... the plot thickens like we knew it would.  A no-fly zone is proposed just like the dimwits had done earlier with Libya.  Is the USA and her allies panting to see another Muslim leader get sodomized by their armed and funded terrorists?  It appears to be so.  Will Russia and Iran sit tight and let that happen?  I doubt it.
Notice how the NYTimes cites the purpose of the no-fly zone requirement as " to protect civilians."  HAHAHAHAHAHA! Man... those "journalists" at the NYTimes would make such good stand-up comedians!

From NYTimes:
U.S. Considers a No-Fly Zone to Protect Civilians From Airstrikes by SyriaThe Obama administration has not ruled out establishing a no-fly zone over northeastern Syria to protect civilians from airstrikes by the Syrian government, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Friday.

Mr. Hagel and General Dempsey indicated they are open to considering the request of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey for a buffer zone along the Turkish-Syrian border, where tens of thousands of Syrians have sought refuge. Mr. Hagel said, “We’ve discussed all these possibilities and will continue to talk about what the Turks believe they will require.” He said 1.3 million Syrian refugees are now in Turkey......

You won't find any of the MSM news outlets telling you about civilians killed in the first strike in Raqqa. The USA+hellhole coalition have those special kind of bombs that know to target only jihadis and nothing but jihadis.

Videos and Photographs Claim to Show Civilians Killed by US Led Air Strikes in Syria 
The main allegations come from the small town of Kafar Deryan, in Idlib, and west of Aleppo, where videos and images posted to social media channels have shown rescue efforts after the attacks, victims, and the debris of the munition used.

Reports on the local Facebook page posted around midday details 4 dead and 8 wounded, and includes images of the victims
1 Child Zainab Muhanna Barakat
2 Child Safaa’ Muhanna Barakat

It also reported 3 women and 3 children were killed who they had not yet identified.
A post a few hours later lists four more dead
1 Abdul Hamid Muhammad Jahjah.
2 His wife Reem Al-Hajji.
3 His daughter Basmalah Jahjah.
4 His son Mohammed Jahjah.
In both reports the deaths and injures are linked to US led air strikes..........

Undoubtedly the attacks Undoubtedly the attacks were timed to occur on the eve of the annual gathering of world leaders at the United Nations, so “Coalition” partners could cluster behind the decision to bomb a sovereign state, uninvited.

The irony, of course, is that they are doing so at the UN – the global political body that pledges to uphold international law, peace and stability, and the sanctity of the nation-state unit.

The goal this week will be to keep the “momentum” on a “narrative” until it sinks in.

On day one, heads of state from Turkey, Jordan, Qatar, the UK and France were paraded onto the podium to drum in the urgency of American strikes against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Jabhat al-Nusra and other militant groups inside Syria.

Every American official – past and present - in the White House rolodex was hooked up to a microphone to deliver canned sound bites and drive home those “messages.” In between, video-game-quality footage of US strikes hitting their targets was aired on the hour; clips of sleek fighter jets refueling midair and the lone Arab female fighter pilot were dropped calculatingly into social media networks..........

From PressTV:
The Syrian army
is carrying on with its mop-up operations against the Takfiri militants in the countryside of the capital Damascus.
Government troops succeeded in driving out the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front terrorists from the Adra al-Balad district after fierce clashes on Saturday.
The army inflicted heavy losses on the Takfiri terrorists in the area and currently controls most parts of it.

Government forces have also started searching the streets and defusing explosive devices planted earlier by the foreign-backed militants.
The town of Adra, located northeast of the capital, reportedly came under siege by the militants in December last year........

Patrick Cockburn writing at Independent:
As the UK prepares for another war in Iraq, is its strategy any more coherent than in 2003?

Britain is set to join the air campaign against Isis in Iraq, but, going by David Cameron’s speech to the UN General Assembly, the Government has no more idea of what it is getting into in this war than Tony Blair did in 2003.
Mr Cameron says that there should be “no rushing to join a conflict without a clear plan”, but he should keep in mind the warning of the American boxer Mike Tyson that “everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth”.
The Prime Minister says that lessons have been learned from British military interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan but it is telling that he did not mention intervention in Libya for which he himself was responsible.

In fact, there is a much closer parallel between Britain joining an air war in Libya in 2011 than Mr Blair’s earlier misadventures which Mr Cameron was happy to highlight......

David Stockman writing at PeaceAndProsperity:
...Yes, it is the Washington War Party which transformed the original peaceful (and essentially hopeless) Sunni uprising against the Assads into an armed rebellion and the nation into an apocalypse of brutal warfare and unspeakable sectarian violence and terror. Without Washington’s money and green light, the flow of weapons from Libya, the arms and funds from Qatar and the Saudi’s and the recruiting and transit stations for fighters and weapons along Turkey’s 560 mile border with Syria would not likely have materialized. There would have been no civil war and “fertile recruiting ground” for terrorists in the upper Euphrates valley.

Indeed, the irony is that Syria and Iraq were never real nations in the first place. They originated as set of artificial boundaries drawn on maps by British and French diplomats carving up the Ottoman Empire 100 years ago, and had been held together by a succession of kings, tyrants, generals and dictators—-the last of which were nominated for “regime change” by Washington.
The outcome is self-evidently failed states and seething incubators of terrorism. Yet the War Party is incorrigible. It has now bamboozled even our “peace president” into a bombing campaign that can only compound the anarchy and intensify the inflow of terrorists to the blood-soaked territories that were once Syrian and Iraq........

The vid below is from a much longer interview.  Listen to how this putrid pustule, the Qatari leader, tell us openly that what we in the West term "terrorists" are not "terrorists" to them in the Middle East. Qatar has been arming/funding/training all kind of terrorists hoping at least one of those groups will topple the Assad regime.  So what if a few 100s of 1000s get killed in that process, eh?

Shells land in Turkey as clashes intensify around Kobane
Four mortar shells landed in Turkey near the border with Syria on Sept. 27, injuring two people, as Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants clashed with Kurdish forces defending a Syrian border town, local officials and a Reuters witness said. 
ISIL launched an offensive to try to capture the border town of Kobane more than a week ago, besieging it from three sides. More than 150,000 Kurds have fled the town and surrounding villages, crossing into Turkey. 

One of the mortars blew a large hole in an empty minibus parked near Tavşanlı, a village close to Kobane.
Lawyer Onur Kale of Mersin Bar wrote on his Twitter account that a shell hit the minibus they were travelling in.....
