First published in June 2015.

With tensions growing in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, a new generation of nuclear weapons technology is making nuclear warfare a very real prospect. And with very little fanfare, the US is embarking on the privatization of nuclear war under a first-strike doctrine.

“On August 6, 2003, on Hiroshima Day, commemorating when the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima (August 6 1945), a secret meeting was held behind closed doors at Strategic Command Headquarters at the Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska. Senior executives from the nuclear industry and the military industrial complex were in attendance. This mingling of defense contractors, scientists and policy-makers was not intended to commemorate Hiroshima. The meeting was intended to set the stage for the development of a new generation of “smaller”, “safer” and “more usable” nuclear weapons, to be used in the “in-theater nuclear wars” of the 21st Century.

“Nuclear war has become a multibillion dollar undertaking, which fills the pockets of US defense contractors. What is at stake is the outright “privatization of nuclear war”.

Weltweit sind US-Soldaten stationiert und im Einsatz, oft in kleinen Gruppen verdeckt operierend, weiter auch viele Contractors

Man sollte meinen, beim Militär herrsche eine gewisse Ordnung. Dass das Pentagon aber gleich von 44.000 Soldaten weiß, von denen es nicht weiß, wo sie sich befinden. In anderen Streitkräften wie im Irak oder in Afghanistan kommt es immer wieder zu Geistersoldaten, die nur auf dem Papier stehen, deren Sold aber von Offizieren oder anderen Mitarbeiter des jeweiligen Verteidigungsministeriums als lukrativer Zugewinn eingezogen.

On December 7, 1941 the U.S. naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was attacked by Japanese forces. President Roosevelt, in his well known Infamy speech delivered on December 8, claimed the attack was “unprovoked” and, on this basis, asked for and received a declaration of war from the U.S. Congress.

But the evidence suggests the attack was not unprovoked. On the contrary, it was carefully and systematically provoked in order to manipulate the U.S. population into joining WWII.

This provocation game, spectacularly successful in 1941, is currently being played with North Korea. The stakes are high.

Die USA opponiert oft relativ einsam gegen Abrüstungsinitiaven

Ein kurzer Blick auf die Abstimmungen in der UN-Generalversammlung ergibt interessante Einblick

Wirft man mal einen kurzen, wenn auch unvollständigen Blick auf die UN-Generalversammlung in New York, wird man bemerken, dass es einige Staaten gibt, die routinemäßig oder zwanghaft Entschließungen nicht mittragen. Kaum jemand wird verwundern, dass dies unter US-Präsident Donald Trump noch einmal stärker die USA sind. Gerade sind die USA aus der UN-Flüchtlingsvereinbarung ausgetreten, mit der Unesco will man nichts mehr zu tun haben, aus dem Pariser Klimaabkommen will Trump auch aussteigen.

‘We gaan onze veiligheid toch niet in handen leggen van wapenindustrie?’

‘We gaan onze veiligheid toch niet in handen leggen van wapenindustrie?’

De wapenindustrie heeft Europa stevig in z’n greep. Voor de 3e keer in korte tijd toont Vredesactie hoe die dat voor elkaar krijgt. Vredesactivisten voeren vandaag actie aan de European Defence Industry Summit. Daar komen politici en wapenlobbyisten bij elkaar om de toekomst van de wereld te bepalen. Activisten waarschuwen de conferentiegangers voor ’t gevaar van de wapenlobby op vrede en veiligheid. “We gaan onze veiligheid toch niet in handen van de wapenindustrie leggen? Dat leidt alleen tot meer wapenexport, meer geweld, meer oorlog.”

Waarschuwing! De wapenlobby brengt u en anderen rondom u ernstige schade toe”, zegt één van de activisten aan een voorbijganger aan de ingang van het Egmontpaleis. Daar is er vandaag een lobbytop georganiseerd door de wapenindustrie. Hooggeplaatste Europese politici zoals Federica Mogherini en Europees Commissaris voor interne markt Elzbieta Bieńkowska zijn van de partij.

The Nutball the Neocons Wanted in NATO

unz.com · by Pat Buchanan

Even interventionists are regretting some of the wars into which they helped plunge the United States in this century.

Among those wars are Afghanistan and Iraq, the longest in our history; Libya, which was left without a stable government; Syria’s civil war, a six-year human rights disaster we helped kick off by arming rebels to overthrow Bashar Assad; and Yemen, where a U.S.-backed Saudi bombing campaign and starvation blockade is causing a humanitarian catastrophe.

Yet, twice this century, the War Party was beaten back when seeking a clash with Putin’s Russia. And the “neo-isolationists” who won those arguments served America well.

What triggered this observation was an item on Page 1 of Wednesday’s New York Times that read in its entirety:

“Mikheil Saakashvili, former president of Georgia, led marchers through Kiev after threatening to jump from a five-story building to evade arrest. Page A4″

Maidan 2.0: The slow moving and more authentic Ukrainian uprising

theduran.com · by Adam Garrie · December 5, 2017

In 2014 when an odd coalition of neo-Nazis, ideologically vague members of the Ukrainian far-right, liberal extremists and random discontented Europeanists took to the streets of Kiev to overthrow the legitimate Ukrainian President and government, the writing was on the wall that such a coup would eventually come to eat the monster it made.

While the western backers of the coup were successful in otherthrowing the government, they were less successful in terms of being prepared to competently govern.

The result is that just as in December of 2013, the tents, protesters and marchers are back on Kiev’s Maidan (central square) only this time, the western mainstream media cameras are noticeably absent.

Is the Islamic State a “Geopolitical Tool”?

Western think tanks have been increasingly busy cultivating a narrative to explain the sudden and spreading presence of militants linked or fighting under the banner of the self-proclaimed “Islamic State” (ISIS) across Southeast Asia.

This narrative – these think tanks would have audiences believe – entails militants fleeing Syria and Iraq, and entrenching themselves amid supposedly sectarian conflicts in Southeast Asia. The think tanks conveniently never mention how tens of thousands of militants are funding the logistical feat required to move them to Southeast Asia or sustain their militant operations in the region once they arrive.

Among these think tanks is the so-called International Crisis Group (ICG). In its report, “Jihadism in southern Thailand – A phantom menace,” it claims:

Emotionele Facebook-posts over de slavenhandel in Libië, zijn de gebruikte nep? Het blijken foto’s die geen verband hielden of houden met de slavenhandel of waarvan de bronnen onbekend zijn.

Deze foto heeft niets te maken met Libië of de slavenhandel . In werkelijkheid werd het genomen in de Ivoorkust in april 2011 tijdens de onrust en geweld na de presidentsverkiezing in het land. Reuters-medewerkers namen de foto, die werd gepubliceerd met het volgende bijschrift:

Gevangenen van een militie trouw aan Laurent Gbagbo worden vastgehouden in een garage aan de noordelijke rand van Abidjan, 9 april 2011.

Het is een NAVO-rechtbank! ‘Voormalig Bosnisch-Servische bevelhebber Mladic schreeuwde dit uit, toen de VN-rechtbank hem een levenslange gevangenisstraf oplegde!

Het Internationaal Strafhof voor het voormalige Joegoslavië (ICTY) heeft woensdag zijn vonnis uitgesproken. De rechters bevonden Mladic schuldig, de meeste beschuldigingen dateren uit de oorlog van 1992-1995, inclusief het bloedbad van Bosnische moslimmannen en -jongens in Srebrenica. Mladic pleitte niet schuldig over alle aanklachten.

This article was first published by Global Research in November 2014. Today Libya as a Nation State has been destroyed by US-NATO.

What do you think of when you hear the name Colonel Gaddafi? Tyrant? Dictator? Terrorist? Well, a national citizen of Libya may disagree but we want you to decide.

For 41 years until his demise in October 2011, Muammar Gaddafi did some truly amazing things for his country and repeatedly tried to unite and empower the whole of Africa.

So despite what you’ve heard on the radio, seen in the media or on the TV, Gaddafi did some powerful things that are not characteristic of a “vicious dictator” as portrayed by the western media.

Here are ten things Gaddafi did for Libya that you may not know about…
