WAR ON MUSLIMS; Russia To Officially Join US In ‘War On Terror’ Against Common Enemy The ‘International Network Of Assassins’
The recent “Chechen Terrorists” Boston Bombings baloney has really solidified my belief in how things are going to play out on the world stage in terms of alliances and wars. Please see my comments below followed by a supporting article…
I’ve had the belief for some time, due to long historical research, that Russia has been working behind the scenes with the US, and Britain. Actually, this alliance has been going on for a very long time, but I want to keep this short and to the point.
This concept is most recently demonstrated by the fact that Russia fully allowed the destruction of Libya, when anyone with half a strategic brain knew that the ridiculous “Humanitarian Intervention” and “No Fly Zone” would mean the complete destruction and looting of the country.
Russia is a very strong believer and partner in the “International Community” and proudly does its part, when required, to see that the overall goals of the United Nations (UN) continue to move forward… into the ditch of one world tyranny.
So because of my historical research, and various clues and reactions by Russia to the last 12 years of complete annihilation of the Middle East by NATO and the US, I reaffirm my conclusion that Russia will abandon Syria at its greatest time of need, or, Russia has already abandoned Syria and is actively working against it, from the inside, while continuing to pose as an ally.
What we’ve really been witnessing in the Middle East for the last 12 years is NOT wars for oil, although controlling the flow of oil is the most strategic part of controlling the world, but rather a war on a religion, a “War On Islam” or “War On Muslims”, the last religion that has not been totally absorbed, corrupted, and replaced by so called Western “values” provided through Hollywood, television, and now the internet. This is the attempted destruction of a culture, forever.
So when I ran across the RT article below, with the very bizarre comments by Russian officials (keep in mind this article was written April 16, before Chechen involvement was known, allegedly), compounded by my earlier viewing of RT’s interview of Zubeidat Tsarnaev (mother of the accused Tsarnaev brothers), where RT’s tone was distinctly accusatory, disregarded that she said her sons were being fully tracked by the FBI for the last 3 to 5 years, gave little allowance for the obvious language barrier, and finally didn’t ask the lady exactly who the man was that she said her sons were “scared of”.
Therefore, I believe all signs point toward a new open alliance between Russia and the US to “fight terrorism”, all sparked by the “Chechen” Boston Bombings, to fight their “common enemy”, to “fight this evil”, the “International Network Of Assassins” (ie, Al Qaeda, Muslims)… just read the article below.
So are we to believe that Russia is completely unaware that NATO and the US have been arming, funding, supplying, and training this “common enemy”, this so called “International Network Of Assassins”, that have been invading and destroying Syria for the last two years????
2013.4.16 Scrap Blacklists, Fight Terrorism Together, Russian Officials To US (rt.com):
Hours after the Boston Marathon bombings, several top Russian politicians have said the US and Russia must join forces in countering terrorism, expressing hope it would revive the ties that came under threat after the Magnitsky List was published.
“It is important for the Russia-US relations that the American side understands that the main threat for the United States comes not from the people on the Magnitsky List, but from terrorists, and the administrations of our countries must make a mutual effort to fight this evil instead of making some lists or counter-lists,” top Russian senator Viktor Ozerov has said, according to RIA Novosti.
The senator added that Russia also faced the objective of raising the security level at mass events similar to the Boston Marathon that was targeted by yet-unidentified bombers on Monday. He said that the parliament must step up the work on the bill on security at sports events that had already passed the first hearing in the State Duma.
The head of the upper houseʼs Foreign Affairs Committee, Mikhail Margelov, made a similar statement and called for a joint struggle against terrorism.
The senator noted that though the Boston Marathon attack cannot be compared to the September 11 events in New York City in terms of casualties, it is a reminder, for Russia and the United States alike, that terrorism has not yet been defeated and that terrorism is always an international phenomenon.
“The Boston events are another reminder that instead of making blacklists that are only dividing us, we should unite. Our common enemy is obvious and all-penetrative. This is a very sad case when one should not ask for whom the bell tolls,” Margelov told the press.
The Russian official also expressed the opinion that the Boston bombings were organized by a homegrown US terrorist cell which, however, is an inseparable part of the “international network of assassins.”
President Vladimir Putin has expressed his condolences in connection with the attack that killed three people and wounded scores of others.
“Vladimir Putin resolutely denounces this barbaric crime and expresses his belief that the fight against terrorism requires active cooperation of the international community as a whole,” reads the statement released by the Kremlin press service.
The Russian president also emphasized that his country was ready to provide assistance in the investigation of the Boston bombing.
CYPRUS BAILOUT; Residents Rush To Pull Money From Cyprus Banks As EU Takes Aim At Russian Deposits; GREECE CONNNECTION
‘Cypriot banks are invested heavily in Greek government bonds, which were restructured last year at the EU’s demand, incurring big losses on bondholders.’ – FOX News
The Cyprus bailout is therefore spill over from the Greek bailout… it looks like the EU dominos have already begun to fall.
This could additionally be viewed as some sort of economic warfare against Russia, or Russian oligarchs, possibly for their continued to support of Syria, but I’m not convinced of this scenario. It appears more like a cash grab by the ECB to set a precedent so this can occur in other EU countries as the dominos continue to fall.
2013.3.18 Residents Rush To Pull Money From Cyprus Banks As EU Takes Aim At Russian Deposits (foxnews.com):
Cypriots rushed to pull their money out of banks and ATMs before the tiny Mediterranean nation’s government could finalize a plan to seize depositors’ funds to satisfy euro zone leaders, sparking a run that prompted banks to be closed until at least Thursday.
The island nation’s leaders were huddling to come up with a way to soften the blow on average depositors, with one proposal targeting accounts with deposits above $130,000. The plan elicited an angry response from Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose nation’s oligarchs may have as much as $19 billion secretly deposited in Cyprus banks.
“Putin said that this decision, in case of its adoption, will be unfair, unprofessional and dangerous,” Russian news agencies quoted Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying.
The Brussels-based euro zone agreed on Saturday to give Cyprus a $13 billion bailout, but demanded levies that would take between 6.75 and 9.9 percent of bank deposits.
Analysts believe the measure is designed to ensure that the bailout doesn’t go toward propping up Russia ‘s billionaires – including Putin himself.
“It is clear that (Cyprus) is under tremendous pressure from the European Union,” Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Shatalov told Interfax.
The $19 billion figure comes from Moody’s, and would account for as much as half of all Cypriot deposits. Cyprus’ bank deposits dwarf by 8-to-1 the gross domestic product of the nation of 1 million, indicating a dangerously oversized banking system stuffed with foreign cash. And Cypriot banks are invested heavily in Greek government bonds, which were restructured last year at the EU’s demand, incurring big losses on bondholders.
News of the coming bank accounts seizure sent shockwaves rippling through Europe and beyond. Not only did it spook wealthy foreigners who have long parked money in the island nation’s banks, it was seen as possibly setting the stage for similar grabs in bigger nations within the troubled euro zone.
“If I were a saver, certainly in Spain or maybe Italy, I think I’d be looking askance at these measures and think this could yet happen to me,” Peter Dixon, global financial economist at Commerzbank, told Reuters.
The Cypriot Parliament put off a vote on the measure until Tuesday in order to blunt the pain for small savers. But without the EU bailout, Cyprus would be headed for default, according to experts. If depositors – especially the foreigners who have made Cyprus the Cayman Islands of Eastern Europe, pull their money from banks, action by the European Central Bank may be all that can stop regional contagion. The Cypriot central bank announced all banks will remain closed until Thursday while talks on the savings seizure continue.
Russian mining tycoon and owner of the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets Mikhail Prokhorov said euro zone leaders “had set a real financial mine under the idea of a single Europe.”
“And this is not because it touches Russian business, which can afford to lose $2 [billion] or $3 billion,” Prokhorov told the Kommersant business daily. “The European Union essentially opened a Pandora’s box.”
Some analysts say the move could send billions in Russian deposits to safer havens, such as Luxembourg, leaving Cyprus no way to pay down its bailout.
“The unhappiest of the Russians will simply look for other places to put their money,” Paragone Advisory Group analyst Alexander Zakharov told the Global Post.
White House spokesman Jay Carney declined to comment on the events, but said “a stable and strong Europe” is in the U.S.’s interest and that the President Obama is focused on domestic economic growth, which can help insulate the U.S. from foreign tumult.
WAR ON SYRIA; British Backed Propaganda Campaign Destroyed By Randy Short In Debate With Sheik Omar Bakri
“The United States, and Britain, and France, and others, have been fighting against the true Arab nationalist movement, any true Arab nationalist society… Turkey, they’re not Arabs… Arab nationalism is under attack.” – Dr. Randy Short
“I understand real well… you need to work in Hollywood because you have an imagination greater than Walt Disney.” – Dr. Randy Short
“It’s a horrible, genocidal, racist, imperialistic, crusader attack on 1.5 billion Muslims in the world… and I am embarrassed that the silence from Christians in other countries, who don’t show solidarity… we share Abraham, Jesus, and a lot in common, we should stand with them, and stop these wars…” – Dr. Randy Short
I’m posting this brilliant debate to expose a new media propaganda campaign that’s attempting to confuse the public about the facts regarding who is actually arming, funding, and invading Syria.
Dr. Randy Short is one of the only people I’ve heard who actually has a historical grasp on the entire Middle East situation and can express it accurately within a few sentences. Dr. Short’s description of the “War On Syria” will tell you everything you need to know about who’s creating the conflict and why.
The following video is supposed to be a debate between Dr. Randy Short and Sheik Omar Bakri Muhammad, or as he should more accurately be named Sheik “I’m Paid By London & I Don’t Know Nothin’ “. This Sheik, who “released prepared statements from Osama bin Laden after the 1998 United States embassy bombings”, and who was “forced” to leave Britain, is an embarrassment to facts and reality as he claims Britain, France, and the US ARE NOT arming, funding, supporting, and training NATO’s Free Syrian Army (FSA) terrorists!!
This is truly unbelievable disinfo, since this is well documented, admitted to in my article here, and further funding, direct arming, and training, of the Syrian Rebels is currently in the news!! This is a bizarre new disinfo campaign that I’ve seen a number of times in the last week. There seems to be a new propaganda campaign to completely confuse the public about what’s really going on. London is the epicenter of terrorist groups and terrorism, and this former British based Sheik is a great example of how Britain historically has always been able to find a brown person willing to sell out his people and his religion… that’s what Al Qaeda is, paid mercenaries.
There is some poor audio from the Sheik “Don’t Know Nothin’ ” in Tripoli, but he’s speaking complete nonsense anyway, so please watch this for Dr. Short’s profound statements and accurate info.
2013.3.17 ‘West Punishing Anti Zionist Syrians’ (PressTV, youtube.com):
A political activist says the ongoing crisis in Syria is a Western project to punish the Syrian people for their position against Zionism.
France and Britain have called on the EU to lift an arms embargo on Syria to assist the foreign-backed militants attacking the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The two-year conflict in the Arab country continues to claim lives and destroy the Syrian infrastructure.
Press TV has conducted an interview with Randy Short, a human rights activist from Washington to further discuss the issue. Short is joined by Sheikh Omar Bakri, founder of Hizb ut-Tahrir UK branch from the Lebanese capital city of Beirut.
WAR ON SYRIA; ‘US Supporting Terrorism Under Disguise Of War On Terrorism’, ‘Media Lies Are Absolutely Mind Boggling’
“I think what we’re witnessing is the criminal nature of US foreign policy… it’s a very cynical and criminal process… the process of actually destroying Syria as a sovereign nation state, that is the objective of the Western military alliance.” – Michel Chossudovsky
Chossudovsky also says, “it was my understanding that when John Kerry were to take over the position of Secretary of State that he would seek a diplomatic path”… well I’m not sure where Michel got this idea from, perhaps from the same media which is blatantly lying about the foreign invasion of Syria. Obama knew exactly what he was getting when he chose John Kerry, a 100% guaranteed war monger, as I briefly outlined here.
2013.3.11 US Backs Terrorism Under Mask Of War On Terror; Michel Chossudovsky (PressTV, youtube.com):
A political analyst tells Press TV that US is supporting terrorism in Syria under the disguise of ‘war on terrorism’. The US and Europe have supplied militants fighting inside Syria against President Bashar al-Assad with arms from Croatia, a new report by Croatian newspaper Jutarnji List says. The report said weapons, which date back to the time of former Yugoslavia, have been paid for by Saudi Arabia at the request of the US. The Syrian crisis began in March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of army and security personnel, have been killed.
Press TV has conducted an interview with Michel Chossudovsky, with the Center for Research on Globalization (Montreal), to further discuss the issue of war on Syria.
28 Feb 2013
Syria’s opposition has won fresh financial and material support from the US but its demands for weapons to fight Bashar al-Assad were ignored in favour of calls for a “political solution” to end the crisis. John Kerry, the new US secretary of state, announced at a conference in Rome on Thursday that $60m (£45m) in “non-lethal” assistance would go to the western-backed Syrian National Coalition (SNC) while food and medical supplies would — for the first time — go directly to the opposition’s supreme military council, attempting to co-ordinate strategy by the Free Syrian Army and other units. [So, Congress and Obama are poised to slash Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid -- but there's no shortage of money to back the thugs and war criminals trying to overthrow al-Assad so US corpora-terrorists can steal Syria's oil.]
01 Mar 2013
Russia has said that decisions made in the Rome meeting to increase aid to foreign-backed militants in Syria only encourage extremists who want to seize power by force. Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Aleksandr Lukashevich said on Friday that the promises of aid to the Syrian opposition made by the US and other countries in the meeting of the so-called “Friends of Syria” in Rome will encourage further violence rather than a negotiated solution. “The decisions taken in Rome…directly encourage extremists towards precisely a violent seizure of power, despite the suffering of ordinary Syrians,” Lukashevich said. Lukashevich’s remarks came a day after “Friends of Syria” group decided to increase political and material support for the foreign-backed militants operating in Syria after a meeting in the Italian capital.
PLEASE RE-CIRCULATE THIS STORY AS WIDELY AS POSSIBLE! IF WE ALERT THE PUBLIC AND THE WORLD ABOUT THIS ISSUE – WE COULD BE SAVING THE LIVES OF COUNTLESS SYRIANS!
Jack Blood / www.Deadlinelive.info / 1.30.13
Upon hearing the set up last month – aka: “Assad has Chemical Weapons and plans to use them on his own people” etc… Most of us expected a scenario in which Syria’s enemies – via well funded foreign fighters would set off a chemical attack on Syria’s people to be blamed on the Assad regime’. This would be viewed internationally as an undeniable excuse to ramp up the war and take out Assad. For the children of course. This was the excuse (in the end) used to justify the war on Iraq.
What we didn’t expect was to catch the Powers that be with their hands in the cookie jar.
Recently, emails were discovered that appear to be damning, emails fetched via a Malaysian hacker which say that the USA is trying to set up a false flag attack on Syria and blame it on Assad and potentially the Russians. The correspondence exchange is via a British “Security” company.
The emails in this leak and files and information mainly trace back to two men in the Britam defence administration, one of which is the founder and dynamic director, Philip doughty and his Business Development Director David Goulding.
(Scroll down for more info on this “private” Company (Private meaning – plausible deniability! They seem to be at best – Special Ops Mercs for hire. Ala “Blackwater”.)
Extremely personal information such as a self complied C.V, copy’s of passports and more have been leaked from David and Philip as well as emails and other plans.
From a lot of the documents its very clear that britam is working closely and even offering types of training programs to the National Saudi Gaurd and some of its internal departments and specialist groups.
Company’s that have contracts with Britam range from a couple of thousand up to Millions of dollars and have been on going for some time now.
HERE IS THE EMAIL EXCHANGE IN QUESTION:
We’ve got a new offer. It’s about Syria again. Qataris propose an attractive deal and swear that the idea is approved by Washington.
We’ll have to deliver a CW to Homs, a Soviet origin g-shell from Libya similar to those that Assad should have.
They want us to deploy our Ukrainian personnel that should speak Russian and make a video record.
Frankly, I don’t think it’s a good idea but the sums proposed are enormous. Your opinion?
Below you find more information confirming the process of interception and details about Britam Corp. This story seems to have been scrubbed by the London Daily News (Due to Royal Pressure no doubt!) Thanks to Cyber War News for keeping it on the web.
In the hackers release note they made it clear they got the data from a Malaysian based server and from a chart found within this data its shocking to see that Britam is using the security of McAfee but is not implementing this on the said server which is listed as a mail server. (see pic to below)
Its also clear that Britam does not practice data security very well as they have been storing user credentials, network information in unencrypted formats.

Alleged airstrike comes day after Lebanon reported three separate overflights by IAF jets; Israel increasingly concerned over fate of Syrian chemical weapons.
A western diplomat and three regional security sources said Wednesday that Israel Air Force warplanes struck a target on the Syrian-Lebanese border overnight, hours after Lebanon reported a series of three overflights by Israel in its airspace.
Israel has expressed increasing concern over the fate of Syrian chemical and conventional weapons as the country slides further into chaos after almost two years of civil war.
The sources, who declined to be named due to the sensitivity of the issue, had no further information about what might have been hit or where precisely the attack happened, but the news website Al-Monitor quoted unnamed sources as saying that the target had been an arms convoy in Syria, close to the Lebanon border.
A Western diplomat in the region who asked about the strike said “something has happened”, without elaborating.
An unnamed security source told AFP: “The Israeli air force blew up a convoy which had just crossed the border from Syria into Lebanon.”
An activist in Syria who works with a network of opposition groups around the country said that she had heard of a strike in southern Syria from her colleagues but could not confirm.
The IDF has declined to comment on reports of a strike on the Syrian-Lebanese border. “We do not comment on reports of this kind,” an IDF spokeswoman said.
Vice Premier Silvan Shalom on Wednesday spoke to Israel Radio following reports that Israel Air Force warplanes struck a target on the Syrian-Lebanese border overnight, hours after Lebanon reported a series of three overflights by Israel in its airspace.
“The entire world has said more than once that it takes developments in Syria very seriously, developments which can be in negative directions,” he told Israel Radio, recalling that President Barack Obama has warned Syrian President Bashar Assad of US action if his forces use chemical weapons.
Shalom added that any negative development will need to be prevented.
“The world, led by President Obama who has said this more than once, is taking all possibilities into account,” Shalom added. “And of course any development which is a development in a negative direction would be something that needs stopping and prevention.”
Meanwhile, Deputy foreign minister Danny Ayalon told Israel Radio that Israel will “not compromise on the security of the northern front.”
Reports of incursions into Lebanese air space and the alleged strike follow a flurry of international visits by Israel’s top brass.
Military Intelligence head Maj.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi on Tuesday reportedly traveled to Washington to meet with American officials at the Pentagon, Al-Monitor quoted defense sources as saying.
According to Al-Monitor, among those Kochavi met at the Pentagon Tuesday was Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey.
Meanwhile, National Security Council head Yaakov Amidror flew to Russia on Monday to discuss the Syrian crisis.
Amidror also reportedly discussed the issue of Syrian chemical weapons with officials in the country.
Obama cannot seem to decide if he is Lincoln or MLK….
January 21, 2013 (LD) – What’s the greatest way to dishonor Martin Luther King Jr.? Compare him with US President Barack Obama – a servant of an engine for the greatest disparity, inequality, and injustice on Earth – driven by the very corporate-financier interests King stood up against, was opposed by throughout his entire life, and most likely was killed by. For Martin Luther King Jr. – whose famous speeches still echo through the halls of time, who spoke a message of peace and of the importance of character over the mere color of one’s skin – he is ironically compared to Barack Obama simply because of the color of their skin, despite the fact that these two men possess the opposite in character, and represent infinitely opposing causes.
Image: A visual representation of the corporate-financier special interests represented by US President Barack Obama’s cabinet, past and present.
Indeed, despite the left-leaning facade President Obama displays publicly, his entire cabinet, past and present, is a collection of corporate-financier special interests, warmongers, criminals, and elitists who merely couch a corporate-fascist, self-serving agenda behind well-meaning liberal-esque causes. A look at these characters more closely reveals just this:
Timothy Geithner (Secretary of the Treasury): Group of 30, Council on Foreign Relations, private Federal Reserve
Eric Holder (Attorney General): Covington & Burling lobbying for Merck and representing Chiquita International Brands in lawsuits brought by relatives of people killed by Colombian terrorists.
Eric Shinseki (Secretary of Veteran Affairs): US Army, Council on Foreign Relations, Honeywell director (military contractor), Ducommun director (military contractor).
Rahm Emanuel (former Chief of Staff): Freddie Mac
William Daley (former Chief of Staff): JP Morgan executive committee member
Jacob “Jack” Lew (Chief of Staff) Council on Foreign Relations, Brookings Institution (Hamilton Project)
Susan Rice (UN Ambassador): McKinsey and Company, Brookings Institution, Council on Foreign Relations
Peter Orszag, (former Budget Director): Citi Group, Council on Foreign Relations
Paul Volcker: Council on Foreign Relations, private Federal Reserve, Group of 30
Ronald Kirk (US Trade Representative): lobbyist, part of Goldman Sachs, Kohlberg, Kravis, Roberts, and Texas Pacific Group partnership to buyout Energy Future Holdings.
Lawrence Summers (National Economic Council Director): World Bank, Council on Foreign Relations, Brookings Institution (Hamilton Project)
Image: Brookings Institution’s corporate backers – clearly nothing to do with left-leaning liberal a
Of course, representation of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Brookings Institution (page 19, .pdf) should give any genuine left-leaning liberal pause for thought. These are think-tanks created by and for big business. The Brookings Institution in particular is home of the very architects of “George Bush’s” myriad of wars – wars the faux-left in America claim Obama only grudgingly has been stuck with.
In reality, his policy is driven by not only the exact same corporate-financier interests that drove Bush’s, but in fact, many of the exact same individuals are writing the policy versus nations like Libya, Syria, and Iran today who were behind “Bush’s” Iraq and Afghanistan wars – the consequences of which still are reverberating. This is what is called, “continuity of agenda,” with the feigned political proclivities of both Bush and Obama being nothing more than carefully orchestrated theater to divide and distract the public as a singular agenda transcends presidencies and perceived political lines.
And in reality, Martin Luther King Jr., should he still walk this world today, would undoubtedly be taking the podium and speaking out against this outrageous conspiracy against free humanity, and the affront to equality poseurs like President Barack Obama are attempting to foist upon the public and the world at large. He would undoubtedly condemn the global war Obama is waging from Mali to Libya, from Syria to Afghanistan and the borders of Pakistan, from Yemen to Somalia, to Uganda and beyond.
In a speech given on April 4, 1967 in New York City titled, “Beyond Vietnam – A Time to Break Silence,” King gives what is perhaps the widest encapsulation of his philosophy and worldview, one that would undoubtedly criticize and clash with the disingenuous US presidents of today, celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day. And the beauty of the equality King helped usher in is, the fact that Obama is black should not shield him from the criticism of the very man that helped pave the way for his accession to office.
One section of King’s enlightening speech criticizing the Vietnam War states:
“It is with such activity in mind that the words of the late John F. Kennedy come back to haunt us. Five years ago he said, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” Increasingly, by choice or by accident, this is the role our nation has taken, the role of those who make peaceful revolution impossible by refusing to give up the privileges and the pleasures that come from the immense profits of overseas investments. I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin…we must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights, are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.
A true revolution of values will soon cause us to question the fairness and justice of many of our past and present policies. On the one hand, we are called to play the Good Samaritan on life’s roadside, but that will be only an initial act. One day we must come to see that the whole Jericho Road must be transformed so that men and women will not be constantly beaten and robbed as they make their journey on life’s highway. True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring. A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth. With righteous indignation, it will look across the seas and see individual capitalists of the West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa, and South America, only to take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the countries, and say, “This is not just.” It will look at our alliance with the landed gentry of South America and say, “This is not just.” The Western arrogance of feeling that it has everything to teach others and nothing to learn from them is not just.
A true revolution of values will lay hand on the world order and say of war, “This way of settling differences is not just.” This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation’s homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love. A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.
America, the richest and most powerful nation in the world, can well lead the way in this revolution of values. There is nothing except a tragic death wish to prevent us from reordering our priorities so that the pursuit of peace will take precedence over the pursuit of war. There is nothing to keep us from molding a recalcitrant status quo with bruised hands until we have fashioned it into a brotherhood.
This kind of positive revolution of values is our best defense against communism. War is not the answer. Communism will never be defeated by the use of atomic bombs or nuclear weapons. Let us not join those who shout war and, through their misguided passions, urge the United States to relinquish its participation in the United Nations. These are days which demand wise restraint and calm reasonableness. We must not engage in a negative anticommunism, but rather in a positive thrust for democracy, realizing that our greatest defense against communism is to take offensive action in behalf of justice. We must with positive action seek to remove those conditions of poverty, insecurity, and injustice, which are the fertile soil in which the seed of communism grows and develops.”
It is safe to say that America has not mended its ways and only traveled further down the dark path King warned us of back in 1967. The man “leading” us, or at least the front-man for the corporate-financier interests that drive America’s destiny, may honor King with carefully contrived words and well orchestrated public stunts, but in deeds and actions Obama and the corporate-financier elite that hold his leash, defame and dishonor King in every way imaginable.
If you want to honor King and his life’s work, honor it by implementing the words he uttered while alive, not by playing along with a system that resisted him until his death, and has since dishonored and exploited his memory with disingenuous praise while maliciously carrying out an agenda contra to everything King ever stood for.

Dr. Randy Short describes the neo colonial invasion of Syria with precision…
Also don’t forget… these 95 percent foreign invaders known as the Free Syrian Army (FSA) are paid with ‘crisp US $100 bills’ by groups like the Syrian Support Group (SSG), which was given a TERRORISM LICENSE by US Treasury Department, which then funds the FSA to create instability and destroy infrastructure all across Syria with things like kidnappings and suicide bombings.
Oh what a twisted web we weave…
2013.1.5 ‘Al Qaeda Advancing NATO Agenda In Mideast’ (PressTV Interviews Dr. Randy Short) (youtube.com):
An analyst says al-Qaeda is furthering US-NATO colonial agenda the geostrategic importance of the Middle East region.
In the background of this video footage shows insurgents in Syria praising al-Qaeda as well as the 9/11 attacks in America. Al-Qaeda, created by the CIA, is fully support by the US with funding and weapons as is Saudi Arabia and Qatar to topple the government of Syria and to steal control of its natural resources.
Press TV has interviewed Dr. Randy Short, Dignity Human rights and Peace Organization, Washington about this issue.
News from Syria is grim. Libya 2.0 looms. Fabricating a chemical weapons threat looks like pretext for full-scale war.
On December 8, the Toronto Sun said Foreign Affairs officials urged Canadian citizens to leave Syria. Maybe they know something they’re not explaining.
On December 9, Israel National News said the London Sunday Times said IDF special forces now operate inside Syria. Allegedly they’re trying to locate “non-conventional weapons” and “sabotage” them.
Israel considered ground and/or air attacks to destroy them. Perhaps they’re still planned. The Sunday Times said if evidence suggests Assad used chemical weapons, Washington and Israel “might coordinate to carry out a ground invasion.”
An unnamed military source told the Times that US forces could be ready “rapidly within days” if chemical weapons are used. “The muscle is already there to be flexed.”
On December 9, The Times of Israel headlined “Syrian rebels claim new video shows victims of chemical attack.”
A You Tube clip depicts alleged victims. It shows dead and injured Syrians with disfigured faces. Assad is blamed.
Days earlier, a You Tube video showed Syrian insurgents testing chemical weapons on lab rabbits. Threats to use them against Assad loyalists followed.
Lab equipment and chemical containers were shown. Some containers bore the Turkish chemical company Tekkim name.
An Arabic text wall poster read, “The Almighty Wind Brigade (Kateebat A Reeh Al Sarsar).”
A man shown begins mixing chemicals in a beaker. It emits gas. Rabbits in a glass box have convulsions, collapse and die. The audio states:
“You saw what happened. This will be your fate, you infidel Alawites. I swear by Allah to make you die like these rabbits, one minute after you inhale the gas.”
Earlier reports said insurgents were given gas masks. They suggested a possible chemical attack coming blamed on Assad.
Saudi Arabia allegedly fitted ambulances and other vehicles with anti-gas/anti-chemical filtering systems in preparation for Free Syrian Army chemical attacks blamed on him.
Perhaps a major false flag incident looms. Daily headlines suggest Assad’s days are numbered.
UK Foreign Secretary William Hague claims “some evidence” he saw indicates Assad is readying chemical weapons for use on opposition fighters.
He’s seen nothing, of course, but media scoundrels don’t explain. At the same time, Israeli Vice Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon said “we see no sign that this weaponry is being pointed at us.”
“We are not (discussing) Assad’s fate,” he said. “And all attempts to present the situation in any other way are unscrupulous, even for diplomats from those countries which are well-known for their intention to distort facts in their favor.”
Lavrov accused US officials of spreading false rumors about Russia softening its position on Syria.
“US representatives started to make statements hinting that Russia is changing its position,” he said. “This is not true. We have not changed our position, and only on these conditions we agreed to hold the Geneva meeting.”
“We said we would be ready under one condition: that the basis of such brainstorming sessions will be formed by the Geneva document, without any additions, without any ultimatums, without any preconditions like President Assad’s resignation.”
Lavrov referred to the June Geneva meeting joint statement. It said any future Syrian transition government “could include members of the present government and the opposition and other groups and shall be formed on the basis of mutual consent.”
Washington twisted the language to mean a future Syrian government must exclude Assad. Doing so, of course, disregards the will of most Syrians.
The present government has strong popular support. The longer conflict rages, the more it grows.
On December 9, RIA Novosti headlined “Russia Rules Out Libyan Scenario in Syria.” On Sunday, Lavrov said:
“We’ll not allow the Libyan experience to be reproduced in Syria. Unfortunately our Western partners have departed from the Geneva accords and are seeking the departure of….Assad.”
He added that Syrians alone should choose their government.
Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said Syrian leaders assured Moscow that chemical weapons are secure and won’t be used.
“The Syrian government is assuring us that it will not allow their spread,” said Patrushev. “We hope that this will be so.”
He and Lavrov expressed more concern about foreign elements using them. They seized a chemical facility near Aleppo. Substances it produces can be used for chemical weapons.
Mossad-connected DEBKAfile (DF) posts regular inflammatory reports. They allege Assad may use chemical weapons. On December 10, it claimed he may have “passed some” to Hezbollah.
Unnamed “Syrian army” defectors alleged “containers were last week removed from Syrian bases at Jabal Kalamon and loaded on vehicles camouflaged as commercial trucks.”
Contents are “thought to have been split up and hidden at different Hizbollah bases to make them harder to attack.”
Israeli US ambassador Michael Oren said he has no information on this. At the same time, he called supplying Hezbollah with chemical weapons a “game changer/red line” for Israel.
“We have a very clear red line about those chemical weapons passing into the wrong hands,” he said. Can you imagine if Hezbollah and its 70,000 rockets would get its hands on chemical weapons? That could kill thousands of people.”
He said nothing about Israel’s powerful nuclear, chemical and biological arsenal. If threatened, it’s willing to use it. Israel menaces the entire region and beyond. Hezbollah, Syria, Iran, and Hamas threaten no one.
DF again alleged a Syrian sarin nerve gas threat. Baseless claims don’t wash but get repeated. It claims chemical weapons are deployed near “at least five air force bases, with evidence of preparations to use them.”
Placing them near warplanes “indicates an intention….to drop poison gas from the air.”
According to unnamed “Western and Israeli intelligence officials,” Assad “directed his troops fighting in and around Damascus to use chemical weapons if” foreign fighters appear able to “seiz(e) any part of Damascus international airport.”
These and similar claims are baseless. For days, they’ve been circulating. Repetition makes people believe them.
Heightened tensions suggests full-scale intervention looms. Ravaging Syria may follow. A potential bloodbath looks possible. It may exceed the worst of Libya.
On December 10, Voice of Russia (VoR) said Islamist rebels claim they seized a key north Syria army base at Sheikh Suleiman.
German Federal Intelligence Service head Gerhard Schindler believes Assad’s government is close to falling. “Armed rebels are coordinating better, which is making their fight….more effective,” he claims.
On Friday, a new unified command was established. Extremist elements are involved. Estimates suggest two-thirds of its representatives are Muslim Brotherhood and Salafist allies.
Washington wants Islamist fascist regimes throughout the region. It goes all-out to prevent democracies.
“Evidence is mounting that the regime in Damascus is now in its final phase,” said Schindler.
On December 10, the Syrian Free Press presented a different view on the ground. “The Armed Forces Continue Targeting Terrorists and Their Hideouts,” it headlined.
Many foreign fighters were killed. The Aleppo al-Bakkarh area was “completely cleared.” Large stocks of weapons and munitions were seized or destroyed.
Fighting continues in other areas. Army units inflicted “heavy losses” on terrorists in Daraya and around Aleppo.
VoR said the Al-Watan news service reported that about 1,000 insurgents were killed in a battle east of Aleppo. Middle East expert Viktor Nadein-Rayevsky said foreign military intervention perhaps is imminent.
It “could be staged in a way to look like the opposition’s offensive with foreign mercenaries taking part in the operation.”
Turkey and other countries bordering Syria may get involved. He stressed that “constructive negotiations are the only way to settle the crisis.”
Washington won’t tolerate them. Conflict was planned long ago to oust Assad. Signs suggest full-scale Western-led intervention looms.
