How the West Lies About NATO's Expansion


Late last year NATO granted a formal membership invitation to Montenegro. How did the New York Times respond to this development? "Russia’s Fury Over Montenegro and NATO." But what do the people of Montenegro think? Joining us today to give us the missing part of the story is Dr. Filip Kovacevic, chairman of the Movement for the Neutrality of Montenegro and a senior analyst for Newsbud.com

Russia’s Military Operations in Syria. Quiet Work Behind the Scenes


When asked about Russian operations in Syria, most people would immediately mention the Russian fighter-bombers, attack aircraft, combat helicopters, and cruise missile volleys. Few would mention the quiet work behind the scenes that was performed by a large group of highly dedicated professionals who helped transform the Syrian military that was on the brink of defeat, into a force that could once again begin liberating Syria’s territory. Without denying the importance of the air campaign, the air strikes alone would not have turned the tide of the war.

When the Russian military began its intervention in Syria, the situation at the front demanded a rapid provision of specialized military support in order to offset the jihadist numerical superiority by superior firepower. That was quickly provided by supplying the Syrian Arab Army with T-90 tanks and TOS-1A self-propelled thermobaric rocket launchers which are highly effective at reducing fortifications.

However, in order to allow the Syrian army to resume the offensive, both its equipment and personnel would have to be replenished and retrained. Unfortunately, the Syrian military was in a state of serious neglect when the rebellion broke out, and large-scale combat operations quickly revealed this sad state of affairs. Much of its equipment was sidelined for lack of maintenance, units were understrengthed and short of specialist personnel.

At the time, the Syrian soldiers were poorly trained, even ones assigned to crew sophisticated weapon systems like tanks and self-propelled artillery weapons. Equipment maintenance systems were sufficient to cope with peacetime demands, but quickly broke down as soon as the Syrian military attempted large-scale operations. Syrian military’s large pool of equipment also created an attitude of neglect toward maintenance and evacuation of damaged machines.

To help, the Russian Ministry of Defense utilized the Syrian Express supply route to send a large number of T-72B tanks, BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles, and rocket artillery weapons to Syria. Russian advisers then got to work training Syrian troops both on the use of the new vehicles and operating them as part of tactical combat teams. Even more equipment found its way into the Syrian units thanks to Russian specialists restoring Syria’s armored vehicle repair workshops, which quickly returned hundreds of broken-down or long-term storage armored vehicles to service. Syria’s air force returned to the skies thanks to Russian specialists and timely deliveries of spare parts.

Making Sense of the Syria "Ceasefire" with Pepe Escobar


Stop the presses, everyone! The US and Russia have announced a ceasefire in Syria!...again. But this time it's going to work. Except for that whole sticky question about who the ceasefire applies to and under what conditions. Confused? Today Pepe Escobar of Newsbud.com joins us to untangle the confusing mess of the Syria ceasefire and tell us what it really means.



The ceasefire does not apply to the what are categorised as 'terrorist groups' which means most of the opposition forces.

Neither one will win. Both have reached the zenith of their political careers. Both probably could not be reelected to the U.S. Senate in their home states.

Aleppo’s Countless Frontlines: Exclusive Report from Divided Syrian City


The ceasefire deadline in Syria is fast approaching and the government and the opposition have pledged to lay down arms. But as RT's Lizzie Phelan reports there are areas where hostilities are unlikely to stop.



ISIS and Al Nusra are all over the territory. The video shows the black terrorist flags flying in the city. There will not be a ceasefire. The same will be true for most areas of the country, whereafter the US will shed crocodile tears and try to intervene.

Corbyn Wins 18 Elections by a Landslide, the Media’s Silence is Deafening


Jeremy Corbyn was given a decisive mandate from Labour’s youth wing in party elections on Thursday. On regional boards and Young Labour’s national committee, 18 seats were up for grabs and Corbyn supporters won every one.

This is a sweeping success for the Labour leader, and for Momentum – the grassroots organisation set up following Corbyn’s leadership win. It could be a sign of things to come at next weeks annual conference for the party’s youth wing, where pivotal roles, of the chair and National Executive Committee representative, will be decided.

But this landslide victory has barely been reported in the media. Highly influential institutions like the BBC consider non-events, such as Russian planes flying close to UK airspace, worthy of top story attention. But when it comes to developments that could have a huge impact on our democracy, such as who people want to lead the country, they simply pass on by.

“Je Suis Homs”: UN Security Council Silence on Homs, Damascus Terror Attacks, Who Was Behind Them? The International Community’s Double Standards


Failure to condemn terrorist attacks in Damascus’ southern Sayeda Zeinab district and Homs last Sunday, killing scores, injuring hundreds, causing enormous damage shows US/Russia negotiated cessation of hostility terms won’t stop future incidents.
 
In letters to Ban Ki-moon and Security Council president (Venezuelan UN envoy) Raphael Ramirez, Syria’s Foreign Ministry condemned the body’s silence, its failure to denounce flagrant terrorism, encouraging future incidents by irresponsible inaction – especially encouraging Ankara and Riyadh to continue supporting ISIS and likeminded groups waging war on Syria.
 
The letters demanded action, punitive measures imposed on state-sponsors of terrorism – not forthcoming.
 
Washington, Britain and France block it, partnering with Ankara and Riyadh, continuing support for ISIS and other terrorist groups, assuring endless conflict – foiling US/Russia announced cessation of hostilities terms before their implementation.
 
Expect no meaningful change for the better on the ground ahead. Obama’s war on Syria continues, its objective unchanged – destroying Syrian sovereignty, replacing it with another US vassal state, looting its resources, exploiting its people, eliminating an Israeli rival, isolating Iran ahead of targeting its independence the same way.
 
Washington deplores peace and stability. Achieving them defeats its imperial objectives. All its post-9/11 wars since October 2001 continue raging – with no resolution in sight, a key indication of what to expect in Syria going forward.
 
On Monday, White House press secretary Josh Earnest was less than optimistic, saying ceasefire “is going to be difficult to implement. We know that there are a lot of obstacles, and there are sure to be some setbacks.”
 
Moscow and Damascus vow to continue combating terrorists responsible for gruesome atrocities, wanting Syrian sovereignty destroyed, caliphate authority replacing it.
 
They’re irresponsibly blamed for doing the right thing – UK Foreign Minister Phillip Hammond, speaking for Britain, America and their rogue allies lied, saying:
 
Cessation of hostilities “will only succeed if there is a major change of behavior by the Syrian regime and its backers.”
“Russia, in particular, must honor this agreement by ending its attacks on Syrian civilians and moderate opposition groups, and by using its influence to ensure the Syrian regime does the same.”
Moscow and Washington will work with pro-Western UN envoy to Syria Steffan de Mistura, a US-appointed stooge, aiming to assure all parties abide by ceasefire terms.
 
So far, no meaningful mechanism was established to mediate reported violations, no enforcement procedure, nothing to hold violators accountable.
http://www.globalresearch.ca/je-suis-homs-un-security-council-silence-on-homs-damascus-terror-attacks-who-was-behind-them-the-international-communitys-double-standards/5509864

The ceasefire depends on the Western powers that have been sponsoring the terrorist regime change forces.

The Public Is Being Looted By Privatization And Deregulation — Paul Craig Roberts


In the US deregulation has resulted in high prices and poor service. When airlines were regulated, they competed on service. They had spare equipment so that mechanical problems did not mean cancelled flights. Stopovers did not involve additional costs.
 
When AT&T had a regulated communication monopoly, the service was excellent and the price was low. Today we have a large number of unregulated local monopolies, and the prices are high. The bottom line and managerial bonuses are more important than service. Customers experience constant service interruptions. Maintenance and broadband improvements are sacrificed to executive salaries.
 
In the US and UK public university tuition has risen so high that the universities have in effect been privatized. When I went to college there was no such thing as student loans. In-state tuition was nominal, and colleges provided inexpensive housing and meals. Most students in state universities were residents of the state.

Many aspects of the US military have been privatized. Services that the military formerly provided in-house are now contracted out to private companies at high costs.
http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2016/02/23/the-public-is-being-looted-by-privatization-and-deregulation-paul-craig-roberts/

Some regulation is good but it appears that the key problem is the lack of real competition that would drive down prices. Roberts points bout that in the communications sector there are a large number of local monopolies. A good example of competition driving down prices can be found in the example of ammunition purchases for the A-10 attack aircraft. A similar thing happened with the engine for the F-16 Falcon fighter. The prices of consumer electronics is another example (except that the companies have now maximised their profits by offshoring their labour - which is where regulation or tariffs would apply).

WHY US Voters Are Picking Trump in the Republican Primaries by a Landslide Margin (by more than 10 percentage points).


These are a few key reasons that interested outside observers, who only get edited sound bites of the election race on TV, might want to consider:

1. Trump has a celebrity tough-guy and anti-PC persona that appeals to many Republicans (and independents) despite the fact he's also said a lot of things (and been taken out of context) that have offended various voting groups throughout the campaign.

2. (Possibly the most important point) If you listen to his speeches he correctly identifies the economic crisis situation the US faces - that REAL UNEMPLOYMENT is through the roof (it's actually around 20%). He's the only candidate reflecting this reality.
http://www.shadowstats.com/alternate_data/unemployment-charts

He also correctly states that this dire situation has been caused by policies that have outsourced jobs. So people who are exposed to Trump's jobs plan (import tariffs targeting Mexico, China etc), who know the country is in crisis, probably don't care about almost anything else he says.

3. He [used to want] wants to implement a system of universal healthcare to replace the current Government-subsidised private healthcare system known as 'Obamacare.' [Correction - Trump wants a competition based private system that does away with state healthcare monopolies (that will drop prices), with a safety net for all those that cannot pay.]

4. He uses anti-terrorism, pro-military rhetoric and says that he'll stop ISIS (that the USA currently covertly supports through Turkey and Saudi Arabia) - while pointing out that he won't use the military stupidly (like when the neocons attacked Iraq in 2003). Interestingly Trump says he'd talk to Putin and respects him. This language appeals to the pro-security/military crowd while giving hope to current service members who in previous Republican primaries gave the most money to the anti-war candidate (Ron Paul).

5. He rails against professional politicians and the establishment (remember, Congress has an approval rating of only 9%) and sells himself as a proactive outsider.

Will Trump end up protecting the big corporations, and/or go back on his promises? Perhaps (although he used bankruptcy laws against banks for his own benefit calling the bankers 'killers' when questioned about it).

Is the guy bombastic and all ? Yes he is.

I'm only pointing out the reasons why many Americans (on the Republican side and Independents) might see him as a good bet against what they currently have.

’Enough is Enough’: Will Turkey Submit in Order to Bring End to Bloodshed in Syria?


Former CIA officer Ray McGovern speaks on ceasefire in Syria which is to start February 27. The Key to success is for two major powers - US and Russia to coordinate ceasefire among their allies. According to Ray, Russia has more influence on its' allies unlike US.



The allies of the US are terrorists, and Nation States that support these terrorists. The big problem is that the Obama Administration is doing the work of the neocons - trying to destroy independent Middle Eastern countries. There was also talk of a 'transitional government' in Syria with the intention of removing President Assad.

In terms of making peace with the 'moderate' rebels - they work with Al Qaeda and ISIS linked groups almost all the time and are not secular in nature. There is no way there will be no ceasefire. Knowing this the US will try to use this situation as a pretext for overt intervention. The Obama administration is already acting criminally with their proxy war actions in Syria and should be prosecuted in International Courts.

The Evil Empire Has The World In A Death Grip — Paul Craig Roberts


In my archives there is a column or two that introduces the reader to John Perkins’ important book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. An EHM is an operative who sells the leadership of a developing country on an economic plan or massive development project. The Hit Man convinces a country’s government that borrowing large sums of money from US financial institutions in order to finance the project will raise the country’s living standards. The borrower is assured that the project will increase Gross Domestic Product and tax revenues and that these increases will allow the loan to be repaid.

However, the plan is designed to over-estimate the benefits so that the indebted country cannot pay the principal and interest. As Perkins’ puts it, the plans are based on “distorted financial analyses, inflated projections, and rigged accounting,” and if the deception doesn’t work, “threats and bribes” are used to close the deal.

The next step in the deception is the appearance of the International Monetary Fund. The IMF tells the indebted country that the IMF will save its credit rating by lending the money with which to repay the countrhy’s creditors. The IMF loan is not a form of aid. It merely replaces the country’s indebtedness to banks with indebtedness to the IMF.

To repay the IMF, the country has to accept an austerity plan and agree to sell national assets to private investors. Austerity means cuts in social pensions, social services, employment and wages, and the budget savings are used to repay the IMF. Privatization means selling oil, mineral and public infrastructure in order to repay the IMF. The deal usually imposes an agreement to vote with the US in the UN and to accept US military bases.

Occasionally a country’s leader refuses the plan or the austerity and privatization. If bribes don’t work, the US sends in the jackels—assassins who remove the obstacle to the looting process.

Perkins’ book caused a sensation. It showed that the United States’ attitude of helpfulness toward poorer countries was only a pretext for schemes to loot the countries. Perkins’ book sold more than a million copies and stayed on the New York Times bestseller list for 73 weeks.

Now the book has been reissued with the addition of 14 new chapters and a 30-page listing of Hit Man activity during the years 2004-2015.
http://www.amazon.com/New-Confessions-Economic-Hit-Man/dp/1626566747/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1456080628&sr=1-1&keywords=John+Perkins

Perkins shows that despite his revelations, the situation is worse than ever and has spread into the West itself. The populations of Ireland, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Italy, and the United States itself are now being looted by Hit Man activity.

Perkins’ book shows that the US is “exceptional” only in the unbridled violence it applies to others who get it its way.

Still Report #642 - Trump is Inevitable


According to the Washington Examiner, every Republican candidate who has won both New Hampshire and then South Carolina has gone on to become the Republican nominee.
Although skeptics point out that Trump won by a smaller margin than most polls showed. However his margin of victory was 10%. Do you know what the definition of a “landslide” is in American politics?
Yes, a ten percent spread is defined as a landslide – and that’s in a 2-way race. In a 6-way race, no matter how you cut it – that’s an overwhelming landslide.
And that’s despite the fact that even the Pope took a shot at Trump 2 days before the election – totally unprecedented in American politics.
And that’s despite the fact that Trump is a political novice.
That’s despite the fact that Cruz has been organizing for an entire year is South Carolina – the most evangelical state in the nation.
That’s despite the fact that Rubio was endorsed by a wide array of major political figures in the state.
And that’s despite the fact that of the 36 million dollars the 6 candidates spent on the South Carolina race, Trump only spent less than 2 million! Talk about fiscal conservatism! Who spent wisely among this group.
Finally, one last point. There is one statistic that you rarely see in the news, but which political insiders keep close tabs on – cost per vote.

Going to War against Iraq, for Oil and for Israel: The Lies, Fabrications and Forgeries of the Bush-Cheney Administration


Let us summarize the sad series of events that have led to what American General William Odom has dubbed “the greatest strategic disaster in U.S. history”. We may add that this has also led to a great disaster for the Middle East populations, and it could also prove to have been a disaster for Europe and the world as a whole, if the current mess in that part of the world were to lead to World War III.

1- DECEPTION: When George W. Bush took power in January 2001, his Treasury Secretary, Paul H. O’Neill (1935- ), the former CEO of Alcoa, recalls that the goal of removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq was raised by Bush during the very first cabinet meeting of the new administration. In O’Neill’s biography written by journalist Ron Suskind and titled The Price of Loyalty, it is stated that George W. Bush fully intended to invade Iraq and was desperate to find an excuse for pre-emptive war against Saddam Hussein. As Mr. Suskind writes it, there was even a Pentagon document, dated March 5, 2001, and entitled “Foreign Suitors for Iraqi Oilfield contracts”, which included a map of potential areas in Iraq for oil exploration. Such a detailed plan for a U.S.-led military take-over of Iraq had never been mentioned during the 2000 U.S. presidential election, let alone debated.

However, a pro-Israel neoconservative think-tank, The Project for the New American Century, had drafted a blueprint for regime change in Iraq as early as September 2000. The fundamental goal was to secure access to Iraq’s oil reserves and remove a potential enemy to the state of Israel. This think-tank, founded by William Kristol and Robert Kagan, was mainly run by vice-president Dick Cheney; by defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld; by Paul Wolfowitz, (Rumsfeld’s deputy at the Defense Department); by George W. Bush’s younger brother Jeb Bush, then governor of Florida; and by Lewis Libby, Cheney’s deputy.

Their document about Iraq was entitled “Rebuilding America’s Defences: Strategies, Forces And Resources For A New Century”. It stated clearly that: “The United States has for decades sought to play a more permanent role in Gulf regional security. While the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides the immediate justification, the need for substantial American force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein”. It was this plan that the newly elected Bush-Cheney administration obviously intended to implement in secret, eight months before the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

It is also most relevant to mention that the document on Iraq mentioned above was mimicking a previous report written in 1996 for the Benjamin Netanyahu Israeli government and titled “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm”. The latter outlined a strategy for the state of Israel in the Middle East in these terms:
Israel can shape its strategic environment, in cooperation with Turkey and Jordan, by weakening, containing, and even rolling back Syria. This effort can focus on removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq –an important Israeli strategic objective in its own right –as a means of foiling Syria’s regional ambitions.
In 2001, the Bush-Cheney administration seemed to have made its own the proposed strategy.

2- POSSIBLE NEGLIGENCE: To what extent was the Bush-Cheney administration negligent in not preventing the 9/11 terrorist attacks? This is a legitimate question, considering that the George W. Bush White House received, on Monday August 6, 2001, 36 days before the terrorist attacks, a confidential report by the CIA entitled “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in US”. Mr. Bush was then on a month-long vacation at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, and no special security steps seem to have been taken to alert various authorities of the threat.

3- A PARALLEL GOVERNMENT: Early on, the new Bush-Cheney administration established a special bureaucratic agency for intelligence gathering, propaganda and war preparations. This was the Pentagon’s Office of Special Plan (OSP) placed under the supervision of Paul Wolfowitz (image right), the Deputy Secretary of Defense. It was designed, as reported by renowned journalist Seymour Hersh, to circumvent the CIA and the Pentagon’s own Defense Intelligence Agency, the DIA, and to serve as President Bush’s main source of intelligence regarding Iraq’s possible possession of weapons of mass destruction and its possible connection with al-Qaeda. That is also where various fake arguments were invented to steer the United States into a war against Iraq. Douglas Feith, a defense undersecretary, ran the shadow agency with the assistance of William Luti, a former navy officer and an ex-aide to Vice President Dick Cheney.

Something that should have been investigated, but has not been, is how some Israeli generals had free access to the OSP, as reported by Karen Kwiatkowski who worked in that agency.

4- WAR PROPAGANDA: After 9/11, few Americans were blaming Iraq for the terrorist attacks, since none of the 19 terrorists involved had any connection with Iraq. In fact, the 19 hijackers in the September 11 attacks of 2001 were affiliated with the Islamist terrorist group al-Qaeda. Fifteen out of 19 were citizens of Saudi Arabia, 2 were from the United Arab Emirates, and the other 2 came from Egypt and Lebanon. None were from Iraq. And their training camps had been in Afghanistan.

That is why in polls taken soon after Sept. 11, 2001, only 3 percent of Americans mentioned Iraq or Saddam Hussein as the dark forces behind the attacks. Obviously, such a perception had to be changed if the Bush-Cheney administration were to start a war with Iraq. That is when the fear of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and the possible links of Saddam Hussein with al-Qaeda were invented, with the active assistance of neocon media. By September 2003, the propaganda had worked so well that, according to a Washington Post poll, 69 percent of Americans had come to believe that Saddam Hussein was personally involved in the attacks carried out by al-Qaeda, even though there had been no proof of such a link between the two. Such is the force of government propaganda when the mass media collaborate in the exercise.

This propaganda was instrumental in building a case for a war with Iraq, without regard to factual evidence. History will reckon that the United States did not retaliate against Saudi Arabia, a country that had a lot to do with the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but it did react viciously against Iraq, a country that had nothing to do with the attacks.

All these facts are well documented and corroborated. Future historians will have numerous sources to establish the historical truth.

Understanding the mechanics of how things work helps overcome people's assumptions about things. In this instance, the clipped text gives specific details about the deliberate nature of the lies that launched the 2003 Iraq War - to show that it was not simply due to "mistaken intelligence" as the (media) apologists often claim

Those responsible for authorising the war, and those knowingly involved in the propaganda effort -to tie 911 to Iraq- are unindicted war criminals. Arrests are long overdue.

Bernie Sanders to the Woodshed




Great video on Sander's pro-war, pro-establishment voting record. However, in the interests of accuracy, Mr Dawson is incorrect when he claimed the Hamas rockets, used in self defence, don't have warheads. Dawson is also wrong about the F-35 being used by Saudi Arabia in Yemen (no country has taken delivery of the defective aircraft except the US), and he's wrong on its current cost (he's talking about the projected cost of the entire program), but otherwise he's good on Bernie's foreign policy record and on education costs.

50 Reasons to Vote for Donald Trump



4.8 out of 5 stars   33 customer reviews

"This is a great book to read regardless of who you intend to vote for. It is so important for people to know who is running for election and the reasons behind why or why not to support them. I learned SO MUCH about Donald Trump through this book that I did not know before. I had no idea that 34,000 jobs are attributed to Donald Trump, and so much more! I think everyone should read this book. I recommend people to research their future presidents instead of relying on the media to do it for them. This book is well researched and a very easy read." - Ashley Leach

"BD Cooper has spirit to write this book of 50 reasons to vote for Donald Trump. Cooper states in his introduction, ‘If you are reading this book, you are probably either curious about Donald Trump as a United States Presidential candidate, or you’ve already made up your mind that you are a supporter. I’ve compiled 50 + reasons why it makes sense to vote for Trump for President. I hope you enjoy this book and that it provides some discussion topics for your own debates.’ In a year before the election the fires are burning brightly with many candidates, each with their own approach as to how to make the country work. Here BD Cooper offers some insights and makes some good points about Donald Trump‘s candidacy. Some of his quotes included are as follows: Donald Trump is a champion for the middle class.Trump is a job creator. He supports our military. He is a strong supporter of gun rights. He advocates for a National Right To Carry Law. He is tough on immigration. He is a DC outsider. He will demand more from Saudi Arabia. He will hit ISIS hard. Trump would ban lobbyists from his administration. Trump is the master at making a deal. Trump advocates a beautifully simple tax plan. And more and more and we’ve heard it from Trump, but not with BD Cooper’s asides. Free speech is free speech so we need to hear all views In the case of this controversial character. Cooper sets the stage and does it well. ‘Looking at the world from all sides now’ applies here. Another pathway of thought." - Grady Harp, HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

Ceasefire Agreement: Syrian Proposal to Begin at Midnight on Feb. 27th


The US and Russia have adopted “Terms for a Cessation of Hostilities in Syria” and propose that a ceasefire start on February 27 at 00:00 (Damascus time), according to an official joint statement.



The ceasefire excludes ISIS and Al Nusra, and other groups considered as terrorists, so that there will be no real end in the fighting - until all the extremist forces are removed.

Gulf War Syndrome: US Veterans Suffering from Multiple Debilitating Symptoms


After their service in the Gulf War conflict from 1990-1991, hundreds of thousands of our country’s veterans began suffering from multiple and diverse debilitating symptoms including neurological and respiratory disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome, psychological problems, skin conditions and gastrointestinal issues.

This cluster of symptoms came to be known as Gulf War syndrome. Independent investigations, including those conducted by many of the Gulf War veterans themselves, showed multiple causes behind Gulf War syndrome, including experimental vaccines and medications; exposure to depleted uranium (DU); toxicity from biological and chemical weapons, oil fires, and other environmental contaminants.

Yet for nearly two decades, the official word from the Veterans Administration (VA), the Department of Defense (DoD), and the White House was that Gulf War syndrome did not exist. The result? Countless returning military personnel struggled for years to have their physical illnesses recognized as something other than psychological.

The latest official statistics compiled by the VA show that 25%-30%, or as many as 250,000 Gulf War veterans have suffered from this life-threatening spectrum of illnesses. (1) The number of deaths attributable to Gulf War syndrome remains elusive, however, the US government has failed to address this critical matter. A VA report released in 2014 weighs in on the disturbing oversight:
No comprehensive information has been published on the mortality experience of U.S. Gulf War era veterans after the year 2000. The 14 years for which no mortality figures are available represent more than half of the 23 years since Desert Storm. Mortality information from the last decade is particularly crucial for understanding the health consequences of the Gulf War, given the Epidemiological Research latency periods associated with many chronic diseases of interest. Despite specific recommendations over many years from both the current Committee and Institute of Medicine panels, federal research efforts to monitor the mortality experience of 1990-1991 Gulf War veterans remain seriously inadequate. (2)
How has the federal government managed to avoid taking responsibility on an issue that profoundly impacts the lives of hundreds of thousands of our veterans? Such is the power of the military-industrial complex and the political machine in Washington DC. It seems that as long as the government can deny its role in exposing our soldiers to unproven and toxic vaccines, medications, biological and chemical weapons and depleted uranium, it wouldn’t have to provide medical care to the victims of Gulf War illness. This is, quite simply, one of the largest medical scandals and coverups in American history. For nearly two decades, the American media supported the official position that Gulf War Syndrome was only in the heads of our veterans, while legions of vets and their families were hung out to dry and die. The administrations of George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, have been complicit in the plot, and therefore stand accused of massive human rights violations. Yet American media denies it completely.

Please Don't Vote For Hillary Clinton Just Because She's a Woman. Watch This First. (short version)

Clinton Expands Lead in Delegates Despite Sanders' Win in NH


Despite Bernie Sanders' win in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton is adding to her big lead among the delegates who will choose the Democratic nominee for president.

Since the New Hampshire primary, Clinton has picked up endorsements from 89 more superdelegates to the Democratic National Convention, and Sanders has added just 11, according to a new Associated Press survey.

These party leaders and elected officials can change their minds. But if they continue to back Clinton overwhelmingly, Sanders would have to win the remaining primaries by a landslide just to catch up. He would have to roll up big margins because every Democratic contest awards delegates in proportion to the vote, so even the loser can get some.
http://www.iowapoliticsnow.com/news/national/government-and-politics/clinton-expands-lead-in-delegates-despite-sanders-win-in-nh/article_4bb906c8-0108-578a-b79f-0c0cba47ba98.html

The undemocratic party.

The big issue here is if Sanders wins a number of Primary contests the superdelagate situation will become even more transparent to the voters. It's also likely that Hillary will win a number of the Primaries via outright vote fraud - which may not be easy to hide from the public. With the email scandals and many skeletons in the closet, Hillary will be a very unpopular choice.

However, because the national vote can be rigged (2004), it's likely Clinton will be 'elected' despite the wishes of the people.

Washington Asks Moscow: Please Do Not to Bomb American Troops Operating on the Ground in Northern Syria


Washington has requested Moscow not to bomb areas of Northern Syria where US Special Forces are being deployed. These areas are under the jurisdiction of so-called “moderate opposition” rebels who are supported by the US and its allies. 
 
The areas in question pertain to pockets of Northern Syria in which various US-NATO supported jihadist groups including the Islamic State (ISIS) and Al Nusrah are fighting Syrian government forces (SAA) and their allies. These terrorist pockets are protected by the US-led coalition and Turkey:
The Pentagon has asked Russia to stay away from parts of northern Syria where US special operations troops are training local fighters [i.e. terrorists including the Islamic State ] to combat the Islamic State group [the opposition rebels are allies of ISIS, ISIS is supported by the US and has special forces within its ranks], military officials said Thursday. The acknowledgement is significant because the Pentagon has repeatedly stressed it is not cooperating with Moscow as the two powers lead separate air campaigns in war-ravaged Syria…. (Al Monitor, AFP Report, February 18 2016)
The advisory acknowledges US military presence inside Syria. Washington confirms that US Special Forces and CIA are operating within the ranks of the “Moderate Opposition”.
 
 
Washington’s objective is twofold. First, “officially” it wants to avoid direct military confrontation with Russia as well prevent US casualties; That’s the substance of the official advisory. It is not the main objective.
 
Second: it is using the pretext of avoiding military confrontation with Russia (and US casualties) as a means to restraining Russia’s bombing campaign: Washington’s main objective is to protect remaining US sponsored terrorist positions in Northern Syria including those of the ISIS from Russian airstrikes.
 
The advisory is tantamount to asking Russia not to bomb the “moderate terrorists” who are supported by US forces. In fact this was the initial position adopted by Washington at the outset of the Russian bombing campaign against the Islamic State in late September 2015. The Obama administration blamed Vladimir Putin of “deliberately targeting US backed forces” in Syria (i.e. moderate terrorists) rather than US Special Forces: US concern (from a strategic standpoint) is to protect the terrorists’ positions rather than their own forces.
 
In fact, what was at stake in mid October 2015 was that Russia was killing the “good guys” namely “CIA trained rebels” whom Moscow had “mistakenly” categorized as terrorists.

Saudi Arabia Admits it Has NUCLEAR BOMBS; Will Test Within Weeks!?


In a shocking development, Saudi Arabia has now publicly admitted they possess NUCLEAR BOMBS. The bombs will protect the ground invasion of Syria by Turkey and Saudi Arabia. . . which puts the Russians in the unenviable position of having to use nuclear weapons to defend themselves and Syria.

Speaking in a television interview Dahham Al-'Anzi of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was discussing why many in the Arab world feel the need for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to be removed from power, and that a ground invasion was not only necessary, but is going to take place!

In the context of the pending invasion, Dahham Al-'Anzi outlined the missiles, planes and other war-fighting equipment the Kingdom has acquired and then revealed "We have a nuclear bomb" and asked the TV Interviewer, "Why do you think we have all these weapons?" He then answered his own question "to protect Arabs and Muslims."

Not content to have revealed this staggering information, Dahham Al-'Anzi went further and stated "We may test it within weeks."

The stunned TV Interviewer said "This is breaking news, I haven't heard this before" to which Dahham Al-'Anzi replied "This isn't breaking news, the super powers have known about this for awhile."
https://www.superstation95.com/index.php/world/916

Whatreallyhappened.com pointed out that the nukes, if they exist, have come from Pakistan, as part of a deal where Saudi Arabia helped finance their weapons program.

This nuclear threat demands condemnation and UN action.

If the Saudis use a nuke in Syria, to 'defend Muslims', then the whole world will turn against them.
