Some of my tweets ... September 16 - 23


So good to see Saudi oil facilities burning...courtesy the Houthis

Well done dear Houthis.  Keep it up.  Saudi Arabia and the UAE with weapons and strategic and logistics support from the USA and its lapdogs, including sadly my own country Canada.  Houthis have gone through almost 6 years+ of war waged on them by their rich neighbour KSA.  It has hardened these tribes to the extent that they do not have to rely on Iran and neighboring African countries to smuggle in the weapons.  The Houthis are now making their own weaponry for use against their enemies. In the link below the Houthis show off their weapons"'made in yemen" that the Saudis have never been able to make in spite of their mountains of money. 
Below some of the uproar from all sides on the attack.

Yemen Houthi drones, missiles defy years of Saudi air strikes
At a weapons exhibition in July in Yemen’s Houthi-controlled capital Sanaa, military officials whipped silken sheets off what they said were newly-developed drones and missiles.
The theatrical gesture revealed the proud slogan “Made in Yemen” spray-painted onto the weapons’ bodywork.
The moment was a celebration of sorts for Yemen’s Houthi fighters. Despite years of air strikes against them, the militia now boast drones and missiles able to reach deep into Saudi Arabia, the result of an armament campaign pursued and expanded energetically since Yemen’s war began four years ago.

"> Saudi Aramco Attacks
The Saudi oil attacks could be a precursor to widespread cyberwarfare — with collateral damage for companies in the region
  • The Kingdom and oil and gas industry have been slow to shore up defenses, raising red flags about the possibility of longer term fallout in the region, experts said, including those who have responded to incidents in the region.
  • Investors should be wary of a long-term possibility of cyber espionage and flare-ups of malicious activity, including the potential for destructive attacks that hurt the value of companies in the region beyond Aramco


The attack on Saudi Arabia’s major oil processing station in Abqaiq over the weekend was a major turning point in global politics. It may be even bigger than many of us realize.
While forces within U.S. political circles, Israel and Saudi Arabia keep trying to shift the blame to Iran, the most likely scenario is that the Houthis in North Yemen were responsible for the attack as a follow up to last month’s hit which showed off the capabilities of their new drones.
That attack set the stage for the latest one in a classic case of the past being prologue. By showing the world it was capable of throwing drones anywhere in Saudi Arabia rebels in Yemen created plausibility for last weekend’s attack.
And as I said the other day this attack begs a lot of questions. And the ham-fisted push to blame Iran for it, after President Trump all but ruled out a military response from the U.S. from all corners of the U.S. and Saudi establishment opens up even more.
If this was a swarm attack from Iraq and Iran, as claimed now (and supported by factless conjecture) then how did all the vaunted U.S. technology fail to account for it?
U.S. Naval CENTCOM is in Bahrain folks. Are these people blind as well as incompetent?
No. I don’t think they are. Say what you want about U.S. political leadership and the nigh-treasonous bureaucracy supporting it, I don’t think our military is that fundamentally corrupt, lazy or stupid.
What are we spending all of the money on, after all?.....



Last Saturday Saudi Arabia’s Abqaiq petroleum processing facilities and Khurais oil field were attacked by cruise missiles and drones. The Saudis claim that this unconventional attack thwarted their defense systems as both cruise missiles and drones fly too low. Saudi Arabia with its sophisticated air defenses courtesy of its vast military budget claims even if it were able to detect the attack some missiles came from the West when their state of the art defense systems was pointing towards Iran.
Despite a lack of firm evidence, Saudi Arabia claims the attack is unquestionably the work of Iran. On Wednesday Saudi Arabia increased pressure on President Trump to respond to the attack. Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement immediately took credit for the attacks, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani insists the offense has been carried out by Houthi rebels in Yemen.
Nevertheless, Saudi Lt Col Turki al-Maliki says,
“The intelligence community has high confidence that these were not weapons that would have been in possession of the Houthis.”
President Trump said the US was “locked and loaded” for a response at the behest of Saudi Arabia.
Yemeni armed forces have motives for their attack. Largely unreported in the mainstream media is that Saudi Arabia has subjected Yemen to a bombing campaign since March 2015. This violence is backed by US military hardware and tactical support. Along with an illegal blockade of the port of Hodeida, it has left Yemen on the brink of the world’s worst famine in a century. UNICEF warns that Yemen presents the largest humanitarian crisis in the world with more than 80 percent of its 24 million people, including more than 12 million children in need of humanitarian assistance.....


Saudi Arabia Iran US Middle East
Saudi Arabia won’t attack Iran. But it may pay someone else to.
 The US is being fooled that it needs to rescue its ally in the Middle East. The Saudis always get others to fight for them....

Saudi First: Trump Wants to Start a War with Iran When MBS Gives the Order
Who remembers “The Bow”?
In April 2009, three months into his first term in office, Barack Obama found himself in the midst of a bizarre controversy. At a meeting of the G-20, the new U.S president appeared to bow his head to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.
Conservatives lost their minds. Fox News ran chyrons suggesting that Obama was “pandering” to Muslims; host Sean Hannity played the clip in slow motion and on a loop. Senate Republicans even ran an online ad attacking the president for bowing to the Saudi king, while the right-wing Washington Examiner published an editorial calling it “a shocking display of fealty to a foreign potentate.”
Fast forward a decade: If a president bowing to the Saudis made conservatives mad in 2009, what do they make of a president effectively putting the Saudis in charge of the U.S. military in 2019?
This was Donald Trump’s response to the recent airstrikes on two state-owned oil facilities in Saudi Arabia:...


Iranian protestations of innocence notwithstanding, the arrows following last week's massive drone and missile strikes on oil infrastructure in Saudi Arabia all point toward Tehran. In this, there's one key question that's on everybody's mind: What is Iran after?...


Tensions in the Middle East have surged following attacks on two major oil facilities in Saudi Arabia.
The pre-dawn attacks on September 14 knocked out more than half of the top global exporter's output - five percent of the global oil supply - or about 5.7 million barrels per day.
Yemen's Houthi rebels claimed responsibility but US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo swiftly....

2/2 Some thoughts on 9/11 ... 18 years later

So many writers have not given up talking and writing about the murderous event that has changed the lives of us the ordinary people of this Earth who have empathy for our fellow human beings. Listed below is just some of the  stuff I have read/listened to the last few weeks.  Some items you might find not to your liking but whether you agree with some or not, we who want to keep this on the front burner as much as possible and for as long as possible, should give time and energy to as many writers as we can ... if only  to keep it as a prime example of how we have been duped by the Powers-that-be.  
Please visit the links for full transcripts.

More Americans Questioning Official 9/11 Story As New Evidence Contradicts Official Narrative
Evidence continues to mount that the official narrative itself is the irrational narrative of September 11, and it becomes ever more clear that the media remains committed to preventing legitimate questions about that day from receiving the scrutiny they deserve.
 Today the event that defined the United States’ foreign policy in the 21st century, and heralded the destruction of whole countries, turns 18. The events of September 11, 2001 remains etched into the memories of Americans and many others, as a collective tragedy that brought Americans together and brought as well a general resolve among them that those responsible be brought to justice......

The Dancing Israelis: FBI Docs Shed Light on Apparent on Mossad Foreknowledge of 9/11 Attacks
As another 9/11 anniversary comes and goes, many questions surrounding the events remain unanswered. MintPress brings you a freshly updated article, originally published in May, 2019 that seeks answers to some of those questions.....

Who Was Really Behind 9/11
A large number of Americans still don’t believe the official version of the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington. I am one of them.
The government and tame media version – that crazed Muslims directed by Osama bin Laden attacked New York’s twin towers and the Pentagon because they hated ‘our freedoms’ and our religions – is wearing very thin as contrary evidence piles up.
Ever since the attacks, I’ve held the belief that neither bin Laden nor Afghanistan’s Taliban were involved, though bin Laden did applaud the attacks after the fact and remains a key suspect. Unfortunately, he was murdered by a US hit squad instead of being brought to the US to stand trial. Mullah Omar, the Taliban leader, was adamant that bin Laden was not behind the attacks.
So who did it? In my view, the attacks were financed by private citizens in Saudi Arabia and organized from Germany and possibly Spain. All the hijackers came from states nominally allied to the US or its protectorates.....

We are all hostages of 9/11
After years of reporting on the Great War on Terror, many questions behind the US attacks remain unresolved

Afghanistan was bombed and invaded because of 9/11. I was there from the start, even before 9/11. On August 20, 2001, I interviewed commander Ahmad Shah Massoud, the “Lion of the Panjshir,” who told me about an “unholy alliance” of the Taliban, al-Qaeda and the ISI (Pakistani intel).
Back in Peshawar, I learned that something really big was coming: my article was published by Asia Times on August 30. Commander Massoud was killed on September 9: I received a terse email from a Panjshir source, only stating, “the commander has been shot.” Two days later, 9/11 happened.
And yet, the day before, none other than Osama bin Laden, in person, was in a Pakistani hospital in Rawalpindi, receiving treatment, as CBS reported. Bin Laden was proclaimed the perpetrator already at 11am on 9/11 – with no investigation whatsoever. It should have been not exactly hard to locate him in Pakistan and “bring him to justice.”
In December 2001 I was in Tora Bora tracking bin Laden – under B-52 bombers and side by side with Pashtun mujahideen. Later, in 2011, I would revisit the day bin Laden vanished forever.....

"> 9/11: A Day that Changed the World
A new anniversary of a catastrophe brings back strong feelings and sad memories. Such is the case of the 9/11 attacks on New York’s World Trade Center, a tragedy that had long-lasting effects. New York, and the world, has not been the same since the events of September 11, 2001.    
The attacks on the Twin Towers produced the most concentrated response to an emergency in the history of the United States. It is estimated that at least 100 emergency units and dozens of private ambulances headed to the scene to pick up the wounded and take them to nearby hospitals. At the same time, more than 2,000 police officers searched the towers and rescued survivors. But the weight of the response fell to the New York Fire Department, whose response to the events was truly heroic.....

The Masters of the Internet have labelled David Icke "professional conspiracy theorist".   No matter what labels and insults are thrown at the man, I still found this interview with him by LondonReal published this year on September 11...very, very interesting.  And, you will too if you are not in denial about the 9/11 murders.

Some thoughts on the 9/11 attack 18 yeaars later ... Part 1 of 2

Below are some opinions  on the events of that day that has traumatized so many people, including myself.  Mention 9/11 and my mind's eye will immediately see the figure of the woman sitting on a ledge high up one of the WTC towers waving a piece of cloth.  I often wonder who she was, what her family thought when they recognized their loved one frantically waving that piece of cloth hoping for a rescue that was not possible.  Our world has changed for the worse after that day.  

Some folks like PC Roberts does not believe there were planes.  Wish he could do more research....or those who believe there were no planes will say I should do more research.  I have and  have read several witness accounts of plane parts on the Pentagon grounds and on the streets of Manhattan.  

The person who has done good research is James Corbett.  His work should be considered the most comprehensive ... at least, it has been for me.  

Bottom line:  what has been fed to us by the governments of USA, UK, Canada, Australia and the EU is a pack of lies.

 9/11 Whistleblowers: William Rodriguez

9/11 Whistleblowers:  9/11 Commission

9/11 Whistleblowers: Michael Springmann

9/11 Whistleblowers: Barry Jennings

 Visit James Corbett's website for more in depth on the above and other great works.

And, then there's Paul Craig Roberts with a mix of everything that might have happened and some of something that couldn't have. Anyway, give it a read.  Most of it you will agree with and very little that you won't.

Some of the Many Things Most Americans Never Heard About 9/11

The “Dancing Israelis” who turned out to be Israeli Mossad agents caught filming and celebrating the destruction of the twin towers. Arrested by police and released without investigation, they were not mentioned in the 911 Commission Report. Later on Israeli TV they said they were sent to New York to film the destruction of the twin towers. Allegedly, there was no advance warning of the event, but obviously the Israelis knew.
The alleged fundamentalist orthodox fanatical Muslims who were prepared to die to be martyrs, but who drank, drugged, and lived with strippers and prostitutes in Florida. They were the patsies paraded through flight schools and left a highly visible public record. They all flunked out and could not even fly small planes, but performed miraculous flight feats in their attacks on the WTC towers and Pentagon that military and civilian airline pilots say are beyond their own skills. These Saudi Arabians were being operated by US or Israeli intelligence to create a record to serve as a parallel patsy operation that could be used to cover up the false flag attack.
Numerous video cameras recorded whatever exploded at the Pentagon, but the FBI has refused to release them for 18 years. Clearly, the videos do not support the official story.
About half of the alleged hijackers have been found alive and well and deny that they had ever left their countries.
In 2001 no cell phone calls were possible from aircraft at the altitudes from which calls were reported.
The airliners that allegedly hit the twin towers were flimsly compared to the steel and concrete of the towers. The airliners would have smashed against the structure and fallen to the street below.
Pre-knowledge of 9/11 was widespread. The stocks of the two allegedly hijacked airlines were sold short prior to the event, resulting in large profits when the stocks fell in response to the hijackings. The short-sellers were swept under the carpet and not investigated.
FBI director Robert Mueller was instrumental in covering up for the false official story of 9/11, a story that has zero evidence in its behalf.
If a handful of young men with no intelligence service or government support can defeat the entire national security state of the United States and all of its NATO and Israeli allies and successfully attack with devastating results both New York and the Pentagon itself—the very symbol of American military supremacy—the Soviet Union could have wiped out the US and all of Europe without detection. Don’t you wonder how we survived the Soviet Union when the “Great American Superpower” was so easily defeated by a handful of young Saudi Arabians?
Four hijacked airliners are alleged hijacked, all at airports served by an Israeli security company. All four airliners allegedly crash. Two into the WTC towers, one into a field in Pennsylvania, and one into the Pentagon. Yet no airliner debris exists. The Pentagon’s lawn is not even scratched......
