Israeli spy drone downed near Iran’s Natanz nuclear plant – Revolutionary Guards

Iran has shot down an Israeli spy drone trying to penetrate the "nuclear off-limits area" of the Natanz nuclear site, the Revolutionary Guards said on their website.

"The downed aircraft was of the stealth, radar-evasive type and it intended to penetrate the off-limit nuclear area in Natanz... but was targeted by a ground-to-air missile before it managed to enter the area," Reuters quotes the statement by the Revolutionary Guards.

Iran's forces fired a missile at the drone as it neared its uranium enrichment facility in Natanz, more than 300 kilometers south of Tehran.

The statement did not say when the drone was downed, nor did it elaborate on how the Guards knew the drone was from Israel.

The Israeli military said it did not comment on foreign reports.

Rights before weapons for Vietnam

Earlier this month, Senator John McCain indicated that it was time for the United States to consider selling lethal weapons to Vietnam after a 30-year embargo. The recent maritime standoff between Beijing and Hanoi over Chinese oil exploration off the central coast of Vietnam exposed Hanoi’s many strategic weaknesses.

Providing Vietnam with coast guard and maritime systems as a first step - and eventually radar, fighter aircraft and spare parts for leftover American military equipment - would bolster Hanoi’s strategic capabilities vis-a-vis China and give substance to the "comprehensive partnership" announced last year between Hanoi and Washington.

“The Russian Aggression Prevention Act” (RAPA): A Direct Path to Nuclear War with Russia

The Russian Aggression Prevention Act”, introduced to Congress by U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), will set the US on a path towards direct military conflict with Russia in Ukraine.

Any US-Russian war is likely to quickly escalate into a nuclear war, since neither the US nor Russia would be willing to admit defeat, both have many thousands of nuclear weapons ready for instant use, and both rely upon Counterforce military doctrine that tasks their military, in the event of war, to preemptively destroy the nuclear forces of the enemy.

Rania Masri gives Barack Obama a lesson on the meaning of ‘barbaric’

Thousands of people from Austin and the surrounding region attended a rally and march protesting Israel’s assault on Gaza, joining the millions protesting around the world.

Video from that rally, of a thunderous speech by Dr. Rania Masri chastising President Obama over his usage of the term “barbaric,” has been garnering thousands of hits daily since it got picked up by social media. She’s on fire!

The Mainstream Media, ISIS, and Iraq War Déjà Vu

It might not be possible to fool all the people all the time, to paraphrase Abraham Lincoln, but the record shows that enough of the people can be fooled enough of the time to achieve the desired result.

Only time will tell what the outcome here will be.

Stephen Walt, the co-author of the much-talked-about book, “The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy,” poignantly observes that “if the history of the past twenty years teaches us anything, it is that forceful American interference of this sort just makes these problems worse.” Note that this is a key point to refute the mainstream internationalists’ claim that US involvement is indispensable for the good of the world and thus it should eschew a policy of non-intervention.

BUSTED: Foley Beheading done with CPR DOLL

What I noticed most is the fact that the face color does not match the dummy. IF he was in the sun enough to get his face tanned, at least his hands should match. SO, what happened here is a silicone head was made or selected to match his face, (a simple task for Hollywood) and they got the skin tone right. But they used a generic CPR dummy for the body and that was a huge screw up. The only reason why I am saying CPR dummy rather than store dummy is because the CPR dummies are made to be like a real body and designed to flop around and have the weight and characteristics of a real unconscious body. This would make it possible to handcuff the hands in a natural position, but the hairless and color mis matched silicone is OBVIOUS, and the head mount is OBVIOUS, and the lack of any blood spatters away from where it was poured from a container is OBVIOUS, No wonder why the British police declared it an "act of terror" to watch the beheading video. With fakery that obvious the scammers who pulled this one had a LOT TO FEAR.

False Flag Alert on Independence Day of Ukraine (August 24)

"According to the incoming information, on August 24, the Kiev junta plans to organize a series of terrorist attacks in a number of large cities of the former Ukraine. As a result of these terrorist attacks, tens and even hundreds of people could be killed. The purpose of this new monstrous crime of the junta - is to accuse Russia of terrorism, along with the self-defence of Novorossiya and local resistance, to justify repression of the disaffected and disloyal to the junta, and initiate a series of laws that will significantly restrict civil rights, that essentially would mean establishing a military-police dictatorship headed by Poroshenko.

In the framework of the 4-country agreement signed on 8 August between Ukraine, the Netherlands, Belgium and Australia, information on the progress and results of the investigation of the disaster will remain classified.

This was confirmed at a briefing in Kiev under the auspices of the office of the Prosecutor General Yuri Boychenko. In his words, the results of the investigation will be published once completed only if a consensus agreement of all parties that have signed the agreement prevails.

Any one of the signatories has the right to veto the publication of the results of the investigation without explanation.

“The Russian Aggression Prevention Act” (RAPA): A Direct Path to Nuclear War with Russia

RAPA provides de facto NATO membership for Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova via RAPA

The Russian Aggression Prevention Act, or RAPA, “Provides major non-NATO ally status for Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova for purposes of the transfer or possible transfer of defense articles or defense services.” Major non-NATO ally status would for practical purposes give NATO membership to these nations, as it would allow the US to move large amounts of military equipment and forces to them without the need for approval of other NATO member states. Thus RAPA would effectively bypass long-standing German opposition to the US request to make Ukraine and Georgia part of NATO.

How can the US defeat the Islamic State? If America intends to decisively defeat IS, what diplomatic and military means would be needed to crush them?

Experts say Obama would have to dramatically expand US bombing raids in both Iraq and Syria, rally Western and Arab allies to the cause and heavily arm local forces fighting the jihadists.

* What military action would be needed?

The United States would have to launch a major air war against IS forces in both Iraq and Syria while relying on the Baghdad government, as well as Kurdish and Sunni tribes to fight the extremists on the ground, former commanders said.

The US military has carried out dozens of bombing raids over the past weeks in Iraq. But to dismantle IS, the Americans would have to unleash the full might of their air power, which likely would involve hundreds of aircraft and hundreds of bombing runs a day.

Man calls Veterans' Administration threat to fine him over photograph intimidation

BILLINGS, Montana — A Billings man who transports disabled veterans said he was threatened with a $50 fine for appearing in a photograph alongside a newspaper article critical of a new Veterans Administration clinic.

Ed Saunders was featured in an Aug. 15 Billings Gazette photo with an article about problems with the opening of the $6.3 million Billings clinic. Saunders was among those critical of the facility, the Gazette reported Friday (http://bit.ly/1AExOnN ).

An investigation is underway into problems in the national VA Health Care System. Montana's facilities at Fort Harrison and Billings are among the sites being investigated further.

Three days after the photograph and the story were published, the Disabled American Veterans driver and public affairs officer was asked by a VA police officer to write a statement about his involvement with the photograph, Saunders said in a sworn statement.

Buggered by Obama, European bootlickers bankrupt their own economies

In a word, by submitting to Washington’s doctrine of permanent wars, Europe eschews the only road out of permanent crisis: peaceful co-existence. The mega-buggers in Washington and the bootlickers in Europe have chosen sanctions over trade and destruction over prosperity. They are paying a price: domestic unrest, displacement from markets by emerging economies and the ascendancy of chaos as a way of life in Western Europe.

Italy faces the reality of a decade of stagnation.

Portugal’s economy crashes and crawls.

Germany’s manufacturing machinery grinds to a halt.

Sanctions rebound to hit Europeans

The West’s malevolent sanctions on Russia were not imposed because Russia had in any way affected the well-being, economic circumstances, territorial integrity or social structure of the United States or of any nation that jumped on the US sanctions’ bandwagon.

There was no question of enforcing sanctions because Russia’s actions anywhere in the world had impacted adversely on one single citizen of any Western nation. But they were imposed, anyway, just to try to make things difficult for Moscow and to try to ratchet up tension between Russia and the West.

Russia decided to hit back against US and EU sanctions by barring some US and EU imports. And why shouldn’t it, after such gross provocation? But there’s a definite downside for innocent people.

Poland wants nation to drink more cider as Russia sanctions bite

Poland's economy ministry wants the nation of beer and vodka lovers to drink more cider.

The ministry, which is struggling to help apple producers hurt by a Russian embargo on European foods, has proposed exempting cider from a law that bans advertising any alcohol other than beer.

Poland is a major global apple exporter and had previously sent half its output to Russia.

But the Health Ministry and other health advocates are fighting the proposal. They say it is dangerous to encourage any alcohol consumption at all in a society that does not share the Mediterranean tradition of simply savoring small amounts of wine or beer at mealtimes.

"Poles are not light drinkers - it's the Eastern European model," said Krzysztof Brzozka, director of the State Agency for the Prevention of Alcohol Related Problems.

U.S. military denies Chelsea Manning gender reassignment treatment

One year after requesting gender reassignment treatment, political prisoner Chelsea Manning says the U.S. military has continued to deny her access to adequate medical care, NBC News reports.

Manning, who was sentenced to 35 years in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas for giving classified documents to whistleblower organization Wikileaks, came out as a trans woman on August 22, 2013 and requested gender reassignment treatment, which Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel approved last month. But in a letter sent to NBC News on Friday, Manning says the military has given her "silence, and then lip service" regarding her request to receive hormone therapy and be allowed to dress and live as a woman. Military prisons like Fort Leavenworth "reinforce and impose strong gender norms," Manning writes. "The U.S. Disciplinary Barracks restricts my ability to express myself based on my gender identity."

US Begins Selling "Syria Intervention" Using ISIS Pretext

In a previous report titled, "Growing Mayhem - US Operating on Both Sides of Syrian-Iraqi Border," it was reported that (emphasis added):

Clearly, the answer, left for readers to arrive at on their own, is that these "successful" US airstrikes in Iraq must be carried over into Syria - where mission creep can do the rest, finally dislodging the Syrian government from power after an ongoing proxy war has failed to do so since 2011. After arming and aiding the Kurds in fighting ISIS in Iraq, the US will attempt to make a similar argument regarding the arming of terrorists in Syria and providing them direct US air support to defeat ISIS - and of course - Damascus.

In less than 24 hours, the New York Times would report in its article, "U.S. General Says Raiding Syria Is Key to Halting ISIS," that:

FLASHBACK - U.S. Suspected Israeli Involvement in 1960s Missing Uranium

Declassified documents from the 1970s provide new evidence that federal officials believed bomb-grade uranium that disappeared from a Pennsylvania nuclear facility in the 1960s was likely taken for use in a clandestine Israeli atomic-weapons program.

The documents, obtained earlier this year through public-records requests by a Washington-based nonprofit group, also indicate that senior officials wanted to keep the matter under wraps for fear it could undermine U.S. Middle East peace efforts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is estimated that Israel acquired at least 118 kilograms of weapons-grade uranium. 16 kilograms of uranium is enough to make a working nuclear weapon. So Israel acquired enough uranium to make seven bombs. Now the trick of getting a "terrorist" nuclear weapon into the United States is getting it INTO the United States, but Israel started out with enough uranium inside the United States to make 7 bombs, then smuggled all or part of it back to Israel. It would have been trivial for Israel to leave enough weapons-grade uranium inside the US to build a bomb, and there is still the unexplained radiation surrounding Israel's New York Embassy. Getting that weapons-grade uranium is the hard part of building a bomb. Once you have that, the rest is easy. All a uranium bomb does is take two sub-critical pieces of uranium and slap them together. Such a bomb makes for a great means of blackmailing the US government, or staging the ultimate terror false-flag to trigger WW3. Just something to keep in mind while ABCNNBBCBSFOXDRUDGE scream at you that ISIS is going to nuke a US city!

“Exodus” Now Hurling Real 5,000 Pound Bombs

Ponder this for a moment: 5,000 pound GBU 28 bunker-buster bombs were dropped on a single house in Gaza. Israel obviously can pinpoint a target when it wishes to do so. It makes many claims that it “did not intend” to strike a United Nations school or a hospital.

That is not true. Schools and hospitals are not struck by mistake. These are large buildings and Israel’s ability to pinpoint targets are demonstrable.

Israel still retains absolute mind control over the western world, thanks to the selling of an Israel narrative which was boosted high into the literary lights and onto movie screens with the fictional Israeli narrative written by Leon Uris in 1954.

Ridiculous: You Won’t Believe What The Government Is Doing To Woman Responsible For VA Scandal

"Almost 113 days and counting — that’s how long the former head of the Phoenix Veterans Administration has been on paid leave. According to the watchdog group Concerned Veterans for America, Sharon Helman — the “poster girl” for lack of accountability in the VA — continues to collect her federal paycheck, even though she’s doing nothing for the agency. Her annual salary: $170,000.
You may recall that, when the VA scandal broke, Helman came under withering criticism, accused of gross mismanagement that may have resulted in the deaths of as many as 40 veterans. She was removed from her post, but even now continues to collect a paycheck while the VA decides what to do about her situation."

Why such hype about the Michael Brown killing?

I dislike ultra-racism, hyper-ethnic chauvinism and plastic patriotism as much as the next person.

Introspection is a noble value; criticizing one’s own people when they do wrong is a righteous thing in the same way that parents who admonish their children when they misbehave are trying to help, not hurt, their children.

Defending one’s own simply by virtue of their race, culture, nationality or religion is a negative attribute, and leads to extreme narcissism, nepotism and other nasty expressions.

But I also believe in honest and fair treatment, and that is scarcely to be found on the issues of race, racism and ethnocentrism.

"They're beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. Oh, this is beyond anything that we've seen. So we must prepare for everything," he added.

Both Israel and the United States are increasingly characterized as police states where authority trumps liberties. They both claim victimhood from terrorism and have used that as an excuse to maintain aggressive foreign policies that emphasize the use of force as a first option. Israel exploits its alleged victimhood to occupy Palestinian land and kill Arabs while the United States does the same to justify its continued presence in Afghanistan and its threats to use military force against nations like Iran and Syria.

9/11: A Conspiracy Theory

Everything you ever wanted to know about the 9/11 conspiracy theory in under 5 minutes.

WEBMASTER NOTE: Right now the corporate media is shoveling ISIS at us as hard as they can, in an obvious propaganda campaign reminiscent of the similar campaign about "Al Qaeda" and "Osama Bin Laden" that preceded 9-11. Given how desperate the US Government is to revive the war agenda, we should be concerned that a new false-flag attack, bigger and bloodier than the World Trade Towers, is being considered.

Mainstream Media Ignores Ukraine War Crimes

Extensive war crimes in Donbass committed by Poroshenko and his army of murderers from July 27 to August 14, 2014.

U.S. Military Blocks Employees From Investigative News Site

A notice has been circulated to units within the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps warning staff that they are prohibited from reading stories published by The Intercept on the grounds that they may contain classified information. The ban appears to apply to all employees—including those with top-secret security clearance—and is aimed at preventing classified information from being viewed on unclassified computer networks, even if it is freely available on the internet. Similar military-wide bans have been directed against news outlets in the past after leaks of classified information.

Ex CIA Officer Claims ISIS And Mexican Drug Cartels Communicate

“We’ve had good intel over the years about al-Qaeda, about their efforts to coordinate with, as an example, Mexican cartels… in an effort to try to exploit our southern border,” Mike Baker told Ingraham.

The one-time CIA employee said there is “a lot of communication” between ISIS and drug cartels and “the cartels are a business… if there’s a revenue stream they can exploit, then they will, and the extremists understand that.”

Following Tuesday's release of a video depicting the beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, numerous voices are warning that a U.S. rush to escalate military intervention would only further devastate the region.

The U.S. government on Wednesday confirmed that a video released Tuesday by ISIS depicting the beheading U.S. freelance journalist James Foley is authentic. In the gruesome footage, a masked ISIS fighter states that the killing is in retaliation for U.S. military attacks on ISIS in Iraq and threatens to take the life of U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff, who appeared to be in their captivity in the video footage.

How To End The War Crimes In Gaza

Some people may read this and say, no way, this is not a solution but I challenge your belief and I offer that this is indeed an effective and powerful way to move forward as a humanity with regard to the ongoing atrocities in Gaza.

Is there actually a way to end the war crimes in Gaza? There is, but the answer lies in our humanity not in politics, politicians, or a rigid ideology. Ideologies that result in human deaths are ideologies of hatred no matter how anyone spins it. We, as a humanity, must find a way of ending ideologies of hatred that serve political purposes. With acknowledgement of this first step we can then move forward to real solutions.

After the video emerged, which purports to show an ISIS militant with a British accent beheading American journalist James Foley, the Guardian reported that Scotland Yard had launched a full investigation.

We cannot let MH17 be forgotten - Please help us!

Those who organized the MH17 false flag have now clearly given the instruction to their propaganda machine (aka MSM) to forget about this tragedy and to pretend like it never happened. Sure, there are a few courageous sources, such as the World Socialist Web Site, which do ask the right question "Why have the media and Obama administration gone silent on MH17?", but even most of the "alternative" media has really turned the page and forgotten about MH17.

We cannot allow this.

While we’re not at the the “bio-nan” stage where organisms are enhanced with nanotech, there are studies in progress in which bees and possibly other large insects have RFiD chips attached. These chips have wireless technology that allows collected environmental data to be transmitted to a hub. Of course, these are real bees.

MEGA PUKE FACTOPR 9.9 BEX ALERT - Americans brace for new wave of Islamic State terror

The vicious Islamic State group now is vowing to broaden its war campaign to include killing Americans wherever and whenever it can.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If we were to take this load of bovine excrement and use it as fertilizer, we could end world hunger!

This is just a repeat of the "Al Qaeda is coming to GETCHA" propaganda from 2001, leading up to the false-flag attacks of 9-11. Following that hoax, it came out that Al Qaeda was a fake. Adam Gadahn, the "American Al Qaeda" was revealed to be Adam Pearlman, grandson of a member of the board of the ADL. Youssef Al Khattab, who ran the revolutionmuslim.com website, was outed as Joseph Cohen of Brooklyn. Even the name "Al Qaeda" was a problem, as it means "toilet" in Arabic slang.

So now the warhawks are back with a new production called "Islamic State" to scare us all into sending our children off to war, complete with phony videos with a man in a phony beard promising to fly the flag of ISIS over the White House, and a "beheading" video so phony hardly anyone is buying it. In the wake of the stolen incubator story that hoaxed us into the first invasion of Iraq, and Saddam's nuclear weapons, which hoaxed us into the second invasion of Iraq, I am insulted that the government thought We The Poeple are dumb enough to fall for being hoaxed into a third invasion of Iraq!

President Barack Obama’s foreign policy has been disjointed and even incoherent because he has – since taking office in 2009 – pursued conflicting strategies, mixing his own penchant for less belligerent “realism” with Official Washington’s dominant tough-guy ideologies of neoconservatism and its close cousin, “liberal interventionism.”

Ukraine captures Russian military vehicles fuelling tension

DONETSK, Ukraine - Ukraine said Thursday it had captured two armoured vehicles belonging to the Russian military as it pushed on with a brutal offensive to snap the back of the pro-Moscow rebellion in the war-torn east.

Fighting has intensified as Kiev ratchets up its push to rout struggling insurgents ahead of a fresh round of diplomacy that will see the presidents of Russia and Ukraine meet next week for the first time in months.

Kiev has accused Moscow of stepping up arms supplies to dwindling rebel-held territories while the West fears that the Kremlin could be planning to invade as a last roll of the dice.

Military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said two armoured vehicles from Moscow's Pskov Airbourne division were seized along with documents of Russian soldiers who had fled following a battle close to the second-largest rebel stronghold of Lugansk.

Obama Fails As Schoolyard Bully

For me, it’s the failure of the strongest power in the hood to maintain peace and calm, that tells the story in the clearest terms. If the leader doesn’t just not keep the peace, but actively ignites battles, all the rest are doomed to fight amongst each other until either the end of time, or the end of the leader’s prominence, whichever comes first.

Today, as we look at what goes on in Ukraine, Iraq, Syria, the Gaza Strip, there’s no way we can say the US hasn’t had a stoke-the-fire role in each of these conflicts, and in most cases has even been the main instigator. If you’re the biggest bully on the block, and you keep on bullying people, your days are numbered. It’s the law of the jungle.

Staged Provocations Ahead of Possible US-Syrian War

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

With the alleged brutal murder of American journalist James Wright Foley, a wave of anger and aggression across Western audiences has been generated. Upon that wave rides two objectives. One is to create plausible deniability for the West which created the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq (ISIS), the other is to create a further pretext to justify a resurgence of direct US military intervention across the region.

ISIS are Sunni Impostors & Saudi-CIA Shills

An effort is being made to paint ISIS as a "Sunni" movement in order to suggest that they may have a far larger following and can ignite a major conflict.

AbuBakr.jpg(America's latest Bin Laden, after meeting with handler John McCain)

But nothing could be further from the truth. ISIS are Salafis, a manifestation of a modern phenomenon in Islam which scholars have referred to as "Revivalism." The Islamic revivalists have two important things in common: they have always been British-sponsored, and are marked by a rejection of Islamic legal tradition.

The Great Israeli Iron Dome Hoax

In April 2002, noted MIT physicist Theodore Postol headlined his Technology Review article “Why Missile Defense Won’t Work.”

The notion is more hoax than possibility. His reasoning was detailed and technical. What’s supposed to work doesn’t as claimed

Hitting and destroying a missile with another one isn’t possible. It may never be other than occasional lucky exceptions.

Claims otherwise are fabricated to maintain funding and deceive populations into believing they’re safe.

According to Postol, “(t)his should be of profound concern to every US citizen” and every Israeli one.

ISIS, Israel and US duplicity

Mainstream media wants us to believe ISIS sprung up out of a hole in the ground and became powerful enough to take over large cities without any assistance from the big powers. The ineptitude of that narrative is an insult to everyone’s intelligence.

The US government claims it has launched several air strikes against ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) militants in Iraq. These are the same ISIS militants that the US and its client states are supporting in Syria; the same breed and stock of militants they let loose like wild dogs to lynch Gaddafi and wreak havoc in Libya.

It is traditional US diplomacy to play a double game — on the one hand training, arming and financing terrorists to overthrow or destabilize non-compliant governments, while at the same time condemning those same malcontents when it is convenient to do so.

Putin could tell Europeans that by disassociating from Washington’s foreign policy and adopting foreign policies that serve their own interests instead of Washington’s, Europeans have nothing to lose but their chains of vassalage.

Putin could explain to Europeans that Russia is prepared to guarantee Europe’s security and, therefore, that Europe does not need Washington’s guarantee against a nonexistent Russian threat.

If this very reasonable and diplomatic approach to Europe fails, then Russia and China know that they must prepare for war.

"I fear our panic stricken politicians are leading us into another bloody shambles in Iraq," GENERAL SIR MICHAEL ROSE

Amid the rising tide of horror stories coming from Iraq, there seems to be little constructive thought emerging from Western politicians on how to solve the political and humanitarian issues that confront the country.

Like panic-stricken rabbits caught in the headlights, our political leaders do not appear to know which way to go.

The only thing that they do know is that something must be done. But developing a viable, effective strategy against the brutal campaign of the Islamic State has, so far, clearly been beyond their competence.

Although I strongly believe that military intervention must be instigated only as a matter of last resort and I firmly opposed the invasion of Iraq in 2003, I am convinced that there is a powerful moral — and practical — case for intervening now against the Islamic State.

It also doesn’t mention that many of the weapons used against Palestinians citizens are in violation of international law.

How Much Does It Cost America To Blow Up American Weapons?

You do know one thing, though: the only real beneficiary is the US military-industrial complex which built the weapons being used for both sides, and which are now being put into "accelerated obsolescence", meaning an upgrade cycle is imminent as one or both sides are eager to restock. And who provides the funding for such "restocking"? Why the same banks that the US DOJ is "punshing" with vicious wristslaps of million dollar fines here, and multi-million dollar settlements there such as HSBC and JPM, thereby reducing the total profit on funding global warfare by "money-laundering" institutions to only tens of billions.

This Map Shows Why The F-35 Has Turned Into A Trillion-Dollar Fiasco

The Pentagon has stuck with the F-35 Lightning Joint Strike Fighter program despite dozens of technical problems and delays, strategic concerns, and massive cost overruns that have nearly doubled the initial cost estimate, raising the cost of building the planes to around $400 billion with a lifetime cost of up to $1.5 trillion.

One reason why the project has become such a boondoggle is that many states and countries are significantly invested in the plane, relying on its production for income and jobs.

Every U.S. state but Alaska, Hawaii, Nebraska, and Wyoming has economic ties to the F-35, with 18 states counting on the project for $100 million or more in economic activity, according to primary contractor Lockheed Martin. All told, the project is supposedly responsible for 32,500 jobs in the U.S. Globally, another nine countries have major ties to the F-35.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Creating 32,000 jobs is good, but how about if those jobs actually produce something useful to the nation? 1 trillion divided by 32,000 jobs comes to over 31 MILLION dollars spent for each job created!

From The Holocaust To The Massacre In Gaza Through Ben-Gurion Airport - by Miko Peled

Israel is an illegitimate creation, born of the unholy union between racism and colonialism, and the refugees who make up the majority of the population in the Gaza Strip are a constant reminder of this. They are a reminder of the crime of ethnic cleansing upon which Israel was established. The poverty, lack of resources and lack of freedom stand in stark contrast to the abundance, freedom and power that exist in Israel and that rightfully belongs to Palestinians.

When you do something again and again, placing great faith in it, investing enormous amounts of money in it, only to see indifferent or even negative results, you wouldn’t be entirely surprised if a neutral observer questioned your sanity or asked you if you were part of some cult. Yet few Americans question the sanity or cult-like behavior of American presidents as they continue to seek solutions to complex issues by bombing Iraq (as well as numerous other countries across the globe).

Yemeni Government Pays Over $1m Compensation to Civilian Drone Strike Victims

The Yemeni government has paid compensation to civilian victims of a 2013 drone strike that hit a wedding convoy – which US Government sources have claimed killed only ‘militants.’

International human rights NGO Reprieve has obtained documents promising compensation for all 12 people killed and all 24 injured in the December 2013 strike. The Yemeni government has stated that it does not make compensation payments to those it believes were militants or the families of militants. Based on the documentation, Reprieve estimates that close to US$ 1.24m has been promised.

Globalizing Gaza

Globalizing Gaza in both military and legal terms raises the slogan "we are all Palestinians" from one of political solidarity to literal accuracy. Its collolary also highlights a key element of international politics of which we must be keenly aware: our governments are all Israel. Read more --> http://sabbah.in/1rkar1Q

Gaza Ceasefire Extended

Monday’s ceasefire deadline was extended another 24 hours. It was set to expire at midnight local time.

Talks continue for a permanent ceasefire. Long denied justice for beleaguered Palestinians remains elusive.

It’s hard knowing how another day, week or month will achieve what never before was possible.

Our Towns Don’t Need Tanks

This past week I have watched both the print and television media’s response to the death of Michael Brown and the ensuing riots in Ferguson. For the first time, the mainstream media has finally started to question the militarization of law enforcement and its impact on our communities. My question is: What took you so long?

Ferguson Media and citizen's Focus, should not be racial. Police getting away with murder and an 'Above the Law' complex. Swat teams Private Corps

The people of Ferguson want justice and they are bringing to light how the police are getting away with murder and it has to stop. The media is making it a racial issue, instead of talking about what it really is about.

They have murdered innocent people across this nation of all races. In fact from a statistical chart, if accurate shows they have murdered more unarmed whites than blacks.

Did you know that Swat teams are not regular law enforcement? Swat teams are private corporations mercenaries. In other words, Blackwater type hired killers are those that raid our homes and businesses when the government wants them to.

Police fire tear gas on protesters near QuikTrip in Ferguson; shots fired at scene

Updated at 11:56 p.m. with more details of tear gas; shots fired
When protesters defied police orders to leave the parking lot of the burned-out QuikTrip, police fired tear gas Monday night after repeated warnings.

Just before midnight, St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson told reporters shots had been fired at Canfield and told the media to go to the command center about a quarter-mile away.
The St. Louis County Police Chief, Jon Belmar, echoed Dotson, telling reporters to move back to the command post because of gunfire.
Police fired at least three tear gas volleys near the QuikTrip as emergency vehicles sped to the scene. Police also used tear gas to break up protesters near West Florissant and Northwoods Estates.

"They're gassing our kids," one protester shouted.
At several points during the night, police warned off protesters by beating the pavement with their night sticks.

A Marxist View of Gaza - “Hey, who you gonna believe, me or your own eyes?” –Chico Marx

....... The video record from inside Gaza effectively puts paid to any protestations of Israeli restraint. American reporting may be prejudiced in Israel’s favor, op-eds may be overwhelmingly pro-Israel and Bibi Netanyahu may be able to get on US TV anytime he wants, but images of dead and dying women and children are hard to overlook.

For instance the Israeli claim that firing a warning shot saves lives took something of a knock when one of their dummy rounds killed four children who were feeding the family ducks on the roof of their home. The attack and its aftermath were caught on video. Similarly, the oft repeated statement that civilians are not targeted was discredited in rather gruesome fashion when naval gun fire killed four boys playing soccer on a Gaza beach. Unfortunately for the Israel propaganda machine just behind the beach was a hotel housing foreign correspondents who filmed the scene even as they were helping to gather up wounded and dead children.

After the Flood: Mines and Mass Graves in Bosnia

In May, massive floods in Bosnia unearthed previously undiscovered mass graves from the 1992-95 Balkan conflict. The waters also moved potentially thousands of landmines from known locations to... well, nobody knows for sure.

VICE News traveled to northern Bosnia to tag along with the team in charge of de-mining the countryside, and met residents still reeling from the horrors of war.

Intervention? It's more like Ceaseless Escalation.

Escalationism is a frail ideology that cannot survive without a steady diet of indemnity and recklessness. But in Washington, that greenhouse of unaccountability, it thrives like a weed. We have yet to reckon with the costs, mistakes and crimes of a decade-long US occupation in Iraq, and yet we are starting another round. It is not just that we have failed to learn from the past or have forgotten to pay the piper. We haven’t even bothered to look at the last bill because we imagine someone else will clear the dishes and pay the check. Someday, the escalationists will be forced to live with the consequences of their ideology, but for now, it will be—once again—the Iraqis who will have to suffer and survive.

Order Out of Chaos: The Global Elites Plan for a “Middle Eastern Union”

The Middle East has been engulfed in a state of chaos for decades now, with the region becoming increasingly unstable in recent years largely due to western sponsored proxy wars. The current map of the Middle East was created in 1916 through the surreptitious Sykes-Picot agreement, a deal which divided the Ottoman-ruled territories of Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Palestine, into areas controlled by either Britain or France. Today the chaos we see in the Middle East is the creation of Anglo-American-Israeli power, which is attempting to redraw the map to meet their present strategic and imperial objectives.

“THEY PULLED ME BACK IN…”

How handy. All three US networks and the increasingly shackled BBC were ordered to drop Gaza reporting and refocus their camera teams on the suffering Yazidis and, all of a sudden, Iraq’s fleeing Christians.

This was a brilliant media ploy. The world, which was furious at the US for enabling Israel’s savaging of Gaza and killing of almost 2,000 Palestinians, switched its attention to the hitherto unknown Yazidis, and to Iraqi Christians. No one in the US had ever heard of Yazidis but that was ok. Uncle Sam to the rescue.

No mention was made that Iraq’s Christians had been safe and sound under President Saddam Hussein – even privileged – until President George Bush invaded and destroyed Iraq. We can expect the same fate for Syria’s Christians if the protection of the Assad regime is torn away by the US-engineered uprising. We will then shed crocodile tears for Syria’s Christians.

Occupation Forces

The US is unique in the world with regard to occupation. It has been estimated that the US has over 325,000 military personnel in over 1,000 overseas military bases in more than 150 countries, but statistics are widely conflicting.

Generally, the American troops arrive to deal with some sort of conflict (either invited or uninvited), but unlike most other armies, they tend to remain for a long time beyond the stated “need.”

There are those who praise this policy, stating that the US “keeps the world safe for democracy;” however, the US is known (at least to us outsiders) as a country that typically routs elected governments, installs corrupt and ineffectual puppet leaders, and seeks to control the occupied country as a satellite state.

The Silence is Deafening after analyzing MH17 Black Boxes. No data released. Silence as if it never happened.

Just a month ago the amount of war rhetoric and accusations against Russia from the U.S. and other Western countries was loud and screaming.

Now MH17 has been forgotten. It is almost as if it never happened from the silence.

I have done a search about the black box results from MH17. The latest I found was from July 30th. They have only released that there was a massive decompression event.

What world do you live in? Putin, East Ukraine and the Old World Order

It's difficult (in a face-palm kind of way) to listen to people, even well-informed educated people and 'experts', opine on global politics when they are clearly ignorant of (or studiously ignore) this most important fact. There is no 'democracy' in this world, and there has not been for, oh... forever. Western populations are so damn dumbed down and dissociated that they actually can't figure out that nothing of any significance changes with a change of government, despite all the evidence before them. In fact, it's worse than that, things do change, but for the worse from the point of view of the average citizen. Who will argue that Western warmongering and the divide between rich and poor has increased dramatically over the past 40 years? How many administrations does that period comprise, about 10? Democrat, Republican, Democrat, Republican... Whoopee frickin' doo. In the UK, it's Conservative, Labour, Conservative, Labour... In both countries, the supposedly 'bleeding-heart lefty' Democrat and Labour governments fronted by Tony Blair and then Obama actually out-warmongered their supposedly traditionally uber-warmongering opposition parties.

How do you explain that? Easy. There is no difference between them because neither of them, as parties or Presidents or Prime Ministers, actually control anything of any significance. Someone else does.

Israel correctly fears its ‘delegitimizers,’ says leftwing member of Irish parliament

There was a Dublin demonstration the other day demanding the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador, and Richard Boyd Barrett, a member of the Irish parliament, called for boycott, divestment and sanctions, and the breaking off of diplomatic relations with Israel, so as to bring justice to Palestinians. At 5:00 he says:

There’s a particular word that they use about us: the people who don’t just come out for big atrocities. They call us the delegitimizers. This is the term that Israel uses. It’s a very accurate term. Because it’s one thing for them to have to deal with occasional mobilizations against this or that atrocity. What they fear most are the people who say, No no no, this isn’t just about this or that assault on Gaza, Israel is a dysfunctional racist apartheid state that needs to be internationally isolated and dismantled. That is what they fear more than anything else.

Israel's Real Target is Not Hamas

In sum, despite its current ability to rip thousands of Palestinians to shreds on the flimsiest of pretexts, all is not well for Israel. Even their short term goals have not been met in this latest attack. Despite everything, the unity government has not broken, and Fatah and Hamas are currently presenting a united front in the ceasefire negotiations.

The "destroyed Russian armor column": Poroshenko vs Carl Sagan

I cannot prove a negative. But then, I am not the one making the claim. The Ukies and a few British reporters did. And they presented ZERO proof. As Carl Sagan so well put it "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence" and the notion that Russia would send in only 23 armored vehicles, with no protection, in broad daylight is quite extraordinary. As is the notion that in a region chock-full of Russian military units nobody would have taken any action to save the column. So even if a Russian unit got into the Ukraine by mistaken (at the age of GPS and GLONASS, yet another extraordinary claim!) the notion that those who sent it did nothing to protect or extract their own men is also extraordinary. As for the British reporters, they don't even have a cellphone to show even bad images, maybe taken from far away? They have nothing at all? Quite extraordinary again.

Activists occupy an Israeli owned weapons manufacturer in Melbourne Australia

The Melbourne Palestine Action Group, a group consisting of Whistle Blowers Australian Citizens Alliance (WACA) and Renegade Activists, locked down Elbit Systems in the suburb of Port Melbourne and occupied the building’s roof for a few hours.

Arriving at the site at 5 in the morning, the activists erected a replica of Israel’s apartheid wall at the site’s entrance, locking the gates of Elbit Systems and disrupting what otherwise would have been a regular workday.

Jacob Grech from the Renegade Activists explained that the aim of the action was not to ‘warm the coldness of the politicians’ hearts, but to make Melbournians aware of what is going on in their backyard’. Judging from the extensive news coverage the action received, the mission was accomplished.

What I’m hearing… the U.S. military – Pentagon regulars - and you have to be careful when you refer to U.S. military anymore. What kind of U.S. military? Is it the Pentagon U.S. Army, or is it the Langley military, which has unmarked uniforms and 10?s of thousands of mercenaries?

They’re about to encounter each other in Iraq. The U.S. military Pentagon regulars evacuated Iraq, and what filled the vacuum was the Langley mercenaries, trained for Syria, that migrated South and announced their new agenda.

MH370 and MH17 — Vanishing point…

Follow the engine wreckage. Follow the cockpit wreckage. Follow the motive. One cannot even imagine the tectonic geopolitical plates clashing were the Kiev regime to be deemed responsible. It would be the vanishing point for the whole – warped – notion of the Empire of Chaos’s “indispensable” exceptionalism.

First, passenger airliner MH370 vanished from Planet Earth. Then MH370 vanished from the news cycle. First, MH17 was shot down by “Putin’s missile” – as Planet Earth was told. Then MH17 vanished from the news cycle.

Where’s Baudrillard when we need him? Had he been alive, the dervish of simulacra would have already deconstructed these two Malaysian planes as mirror images; from absolute vanishing to maximum exposure, then vanished again. They might as well have been abducted – and shot – by aliens. Now you see them, now you don’t.
