Kurdish dream or a Middle Eastern nightmare?

Israeli support for a Kurd state is testament to it’s ethnic cleansing of large swathes of Syria.

Kurd aspirations of a state to call their own has seen ethnic cleansing of various groups of people from East of the Euphrates river. Raqqa hasn’t been cleared of ISIS, it’s been totally destroyed by Kurd and American forces. The plan has been to make a clean slate of large areas of Syria that haven’t been predominantly Kurdish and has been geared up to steal the most valuable energy resources of the Syrian state. Just as in Iraq, the Kurds, with US support are attempting to seize oil wells and gas installations that would effectively make the economy of Syria untenable. Considering the rebuilding of Syria, the revenue from these assets are vital.

Donald Trump and the neocon US government have consistently lied about their aims in war torn Syria by being the driving force behind Kurdish attempts to claim vast areas in Syria. The US has been implementing an Israeli push for autonomy on the basis it would financially ruin the Assad government. Trump has pretended to distance himself from the internal restructuring, whilst carrying out Netanyahu’s plan to the letter.

If it wasn’t obvious before, the US government is now very clearly controlled by Israel. Trump claims to be ‘America First’ but his actions betray the truth.

It’s of no strategic or financial use whatsoever to the US regime. It will be beneficial to private companies who will profit from the theft by the hapless Kurds who have been convinced it is a feasible move. It isn’t. This Kurd nation they want to create is land locked. The only possible route they have for selling the oil is via Turkey. The US policy has been ‘might is right’ but despite the huge amounts spent on ‘defence’, there is a different reality coming to the fore since the revitalised Russia started to upgrade its military capability.

The US spends on its own almost as much as the rest of the world put together. Problematically, most of the defence funding has a propensity to disappear in to thin air On September 10th 2001, Donald Rumsfeld announced that over 2 trillion dollars had gone missing. The statement was never severely scrutinized and the department trying to uncover the discrepancy was unfortunately obliterated in the Pentagon attack.

Shoot first, ask questions later.

The majority of British police now think they should be armed.

The continued use of excessive force during armed confrontations indicates that British police and firearms don’t blend well. A suspect has been killed today in an operation involving numerous armed police and it’s apparent that this particular victim was never going to to escape with his life intact.

No details have been released yet but a couple of images have emerged.

The first thing that strikes me is that there should be two bullet holes in the rear window. What are the rules of engagement? I imagined they would only fire if they felt that officers were in imminent danger if they didn’t. Clearly that is not the case because the suspect was still sat in the drivers seat when he was fired at from behind. If it takes this many bullets to take out a suspect, it signifies lack of expertise in the use of weapons.

Recently, it’s been announced that the majority of police officers support the arming of the force. If specialist police units continue to show incompetence and panic when dealing with very well planned operations, it instills no confidence.

As i’ve said before, when these two combinations are mixed, it will ultimately end in death for a suspect. The sight of UK police with semi automatic weapons is terrifying and the practice should be resisted. Police officers killed by armed suspects is thankfully a very small number. Arming all officers to protect themselves would mean more civilian victims and more cover ups.

A report in the notorious stranger to the truth, the Daily Mail claims that the red car was ‘chased’ down the motorway. I can’t tell what sort of car it is, what I can say with certainty is that it ISN’T a Ferrari.

An idiots guide to identity politics.

Straight talking Gilad explains it all.

(warning: Gilad Atzmon uses some ‘industrial language’ in this clip)

I’ve read Gilad Atzmon’s articles dozens of times but haven’t always understood the political descriptions completely. In this video, he manages to finally get his message through and it all makes perfect sense.

There are many Jewish groups trying to destroy him by contacting venues that he is playing and trying to get them to cancel. Fortunately, Mr Atzmon is very, very determined.

Israel under the radar.

The threat of more war is increasing in the Middle East.

Russian war drill’s have been universally condemned as provocative by the worlds media but those within the sphere of ‘the West’ are described as preparation and safeguarding our security.

Recently, Israel have gone even further by using the scenario of a war with Hezbollah. Criticism has been muted. A war would be perfect for Netanyahu now because he is mired in accusations of corruption in Israel and ‘defending themselves’ would be a perfect distraction.

The Israeli regime are also losing the ‘war’ with BDS, as the campaign is gaining traction in the face of continued land grabs, school demolitions and video footage of very small children having their satchels searched by IDF soldiers whilst walking to school. In defence of these claims, it’s been pointed out that some schools in the West have mandatory searches for the pupils but the age range is much higher than the toddlers the IDF have been targeting.

The video can be watched on this twitter feed and the nature of the search is telling. The male soldier throws the books out of the bags and the female soldier seems unconcerned. Meanwhile, the school children carry on like ordinary kids, chattering and playing – As if this is normal!

Speaking of normality, a thought provoking, if rather depressing description of Israel by Gideon Levy.

Tim Rhodes – A fitting memorial.

tims seat

It must take a very distinct mentality to prevent a decent and honourable person the opportunity for his friends to say goodbye. That a complete family would allow such a thing is unfathomable. Only the most heinous criminal activity would normally result in the deceased being secretly buried or cremated without even the slightest acquaintance to observe the ceremony. This is what happened to Tim Rhodes and so far as i’m aware, the whereabouts of his grave is still unknown to any of his friends.

Because he made such a positive impact on the people that knew him, it couldnt be left like this. For some reason, his closest living relative, his brother Andrew rendered his passing a non event.

Yesterday, in Cherry Willingham, Lincolnshire a seat was unveiled in memory of Tim, which had been paid for by his many good friends in the village and beyond.

Tim didn’t have much time for religion but that’s not to say he wasn’t spiritual. Outwardly, he would have dismissed the idea of a park bench with his name on it but I think (and I am sure many of his friends would agree) that he would have been pleased to be held in such high esteem that people cared enough to do it.

So, despite the efforts of his relatives, Tim will be remembered long after their miserable lives have been snuffed out. During his battle with cancer, they only ‘cared’ enough to make sure that they were the recipients of all his valuables but when it came to his funeral, the truth was revealed.

Once a banker, always a banker, Andrew Rhodes, take a bow.

A headline writers dream.

.. The picture isn’t very impressive though.

This rather pathetic looking device has provided our automatic rifle carrying Police to ‘big it up’ in many cities and towns this weekend, as the terrorist warning alerts go to critical. It seems that the fireball emitted from this bomb was very environmentally friendly to it’s surroundings and only managed to singe a few eyebrows. The stampede that followed it seems to have been more of a health and safety issue than the contents of the Lidl cooler bag.

One woman described it as being like Hillsborough with people stacked on top of each other and even a pregnant woman being knocked over. I have no idea if the witness knew how many people died at the football ground tragedy but comparing the two events leaves me speechless.

The Police response is fairly predictable. Give any officer who can shoot straight a weapon but don’t tell the public what the suspect looks like.

The government quickly had a ‘COBRA’ meeting, an event that is becoming more frequent. I wonder what Boris Johnson does at these hastily arranged gatherings? The thought of top level critical meeting with this clown being a vital cog doesn’t fill me with confidence. He can barely put one foot in front of the other without stepping in dog excrement and he can’t make a statement without creating a crowd of people shaking their heads in disbelief. The man is an absolute prick.

Bucket bomber!

The Daily Mail expresses the usual over the top horror at this most recent attack to try to scare the public. They never mention the fact that the British government have been creating opportunities for real terrorists to cause untold bloodshed in many other countries with their foreign policies for decades. Sadly, these examples are rather more deadly and happen on a daily basis in town and cities in primarily, the Middle East.

Huge sigh of relief.

The blundering bomber has been arrested, so London’s commuters can now travel safely, as long as there are no more unattended carrier bags detected. It would be interesting to have a list of exactly what injuries this ‘terrorist incident’ created. Supposedly, 29 people were injured but the worst i’ve seen is more akin to cigarette lighter accident. Twisted ankles and pulled muscles, perhaps?

If you think I’m being far too casual about the Parsons Green ‘bombing’, it’s intentional. The bombing and subsequent reporting are a cynical attempt to convince people that we are in imminent danger of the easily influenced, incompetent and laughable ‘security risk’ extremists. The terrorists that the British Army have been training in and around Syria will be much more of a threat than the bucket bomber and his pals. You won’t be told about the equipping of terrorists likely to attack Syrian soldiers defending their homes and families. They won’t tell you the truth about the millions of pounds the UK government has given the bogus ISIS fire brigade, the White Helmets.

The Grenfell inquiry.

I also doubt that this PR exercise will reveal much, either. We will have to wait and see if Boris Johnson’s butchering of the London Fire Brigade will be regarded as relevant. It wasn’t just the reduction of Fire Stations in the capital that should be investigated, it should also reveal how many very experienced and long serving Firemen took early retirement and if it had any bearing on the rescuing of victims or the way in which they tackled the blaze. I’m not saying that those firefighters that did attend did anything wrong but there are certain times when more experienced heads are required. I don’t expect these questions to be answered or many others in what will be another state coverup.

Putin and North Korea.

Why do the media paint North Korea as a freak state when the reality of their predicament is blatantly obvious?

In case we don’t know, President Putin explains the logic.

The use of sanctions by the US can be equally as devastating as ‘shock and awe’, depending on how integrated the ‘victim’ is. Because Iraq was a relatively advanced country and it’s health system was inclusive and widespread, the US and it’s allies sanctions were devastating and it’s been reported that up to half a million infants and children died for want of very basic medication, previously supplied by the West. However, in the case of North Korea, it’s people have been deprived modern health solutions because of it’s isolation. President Putin explains the logic very clearly in the short video.

Without a doubt, there is  no world leader that speaks with such clarity as Putin. No matter what the issue, he tries to explain what he thinks and why he thinks it. The dishonesty and evasion in Western politics is exactly the opposite.

A program by the BBC, World’s Busiest Cities, gave a fascinating insight into Russian life, specifically in Moscow. Towards the end of the film, a Russian woman explained how she faced eviction and that she was only being offered a fraction of the price (as compensation) to what it would cost to buy one of the newly built apartments that would replace her present one. There was a comment by the narrator that because of this ‘Russia still had things to learn’.

The insinuation that this couldn’t happen here in the UK, presumably because our society is fairer, was clear. The truth is very different. Exactly the same problems have occurred in London, an example was actually filmed by the BBC a couple of years ago. Property developers are no different in London than they are in Moscow or anywhere else. It’s a shame the BBC ended a very informative program by returning to it’s standard level of hypocrisy.
