The use of ‘Crimea’ as an excuse for this restoration of the «Cold War» (which is already a hot war in Ukraine, Syria, and other lands, where the US sees fit to replace leaders that ally with Russia), is just as bogus as is the use of ‘Iranian nuclear weapons’ as an excuse for installing SDI. Any aristocracy that needs to lie so blatantly in order to continue along such a catastrophic path as this, needs to be defeated, instead of to be believed and obeyed. They might as well be Satan. Except that, unfortunately, they’re not mythological – which makes all the difference: this demon is all-too-real.
Here are some news reports from perhaps the world’s best living investigative reporter, Christof Lehmann, who has provided shocking details about how vile this global-aristocratic operation is, regarding Syria – entailing not only the US aristocracy, but the European ones, and the Arabic ones, the entire rotten-through-and-through «Western alliance» (an alliance of aristocracies who can be satisfied with nothing less than their collective global conquest).
The first report, on 2 May 2013, titled «EU Lifts Oil Embargo on Syria – Buys Directly from Al Qaeda», summarizes the key facts that Western media had already reported (prior to their being virtually banned from reporting these things in the West), things such as that 27 of the 28 EU nations had already decided in April 2013 to purchase oil stolen from Syria by «the Nusra Front, an al-Qaeda linked rebel group» in order to assist the Saudi and Qatari royals in financing «the moderate opposition forces» (such as al-Qaeda – the group that had perpetrated 9/11 and other terrorist attacks against Western populations; and, even Seymour Hersh reported, on 4 April 2014, that Obama and US allies were supplying weapons to al-Nusra) to defeat the Syrian army of Bashar al-Assad. (Assad is Shiite but secular, the opposite of fundamentalist Sunni Islamic, which is the jihadism that the Sauds and their fellow-Arab royals are devoted to; and Assad is furthermore allied with those Arab-royals’ chief oil-and-gas competitor, Russia; so, Western aristocracies help these Sunni jihadists who are being sent into Syria to overthrow Assad.)
The second in the series, on 8 August 2013, was titled «EU/US Al-Qaeda Massacres on Kurds for Oil and Secession». It opened with this summary:
«In April 2013, the European Union lifted its embargo on the import of oil from «rebel held» Syrian territories. The import [of oil] is primarily to come from the predominantly Kurdish region of Syria. In July and August 2013, confirmed and unconfirmed reports about massacres of Kurds, committed by western-backed, Al-Qaeda associated insurgents, increase simultaneously with an influx of insurgents [jihadists] from western countries. An estimated 17,000 fighters from the Kurdish Workers´ Party, PKK have deployed from Turkey to the region near Irkuk, in the Kurdish Administrated Region of Iraq. The function of the EU/US strategy – massacres [of Syria’s civilian population] for oil, to finance mercenaries [those jihadist groups that are pouring into Syria to eliminate Assad], and to create a demand for secession among Syrian Kurds, over perceived security concerns».
The third in the series, on 22 June 2014, was titled, «US Embassy in Ankara Headquarter for ISIS War on Iraq – Hariri Insider», and it opened:
«The green light for the use of ISIS brigades to carve up Iraq, widen the Syria conflict into a greater Middle East war and to throw Iran off-balance, was given behind closed doors at the Atlantic Council meeting in Turkey, in November 2013, told a source close to Saudi-Lebanese billionaire Saad Hariri, adding that the US Embassy in Ankara is the operation’s headquarters.
A ‘trusted source’ close to the Saudi-Lebanese multi-billionaire and former Lebanese P.M. Saad Hariri told, on condition of anonymity, that the final green light for the war on Iraq with ISIS or ISIL brigades was given behind closed doors, at the sidelines of the Atlantic Council’s Energy Summit in Istanbul, Turkey, on November 22-23, 2013…
‘Certain circles in Washington put a hell of a lot of pressure on Obama to put a gun to al-Maliki’s head’, said the Hariri source, adding that ‘time was running out and Obama was hesitant.’ Asked what he meant with ‘time was running out’ and if he could specify who it was that pushed Obama, he said:… ‘Who exactly pressured Obama? I don’t know who delivered the message to Obama.’…
The summit was, among others, attended by Turkey’s President Abdullah Gül, US Energy Secretary Ernst Monitz, Atlantic Council President Frederick Kempe, former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, former US National Security Adviser Brent Scowcroft [and others]… Noting that a prominent member of Saudi Arabia’s royal family, Prince Abdul Rachman al-Faisal has been named as the one being ‘in command’ of the ISIS brigades, and if he could either confirm or deny, he nodded, adding that ‘the Prince’ is responsible for financing the operation and for part of the command structure, but that the operations headquarters is the US Embassy in Ankara Turkey».
The fourth in this series, on 7 October 2013, was titled, «Top US and Saudi Officials responsible for Chemical Weapons in Syria», and it’s so good, it simply must be read (just click onto that link). This report documented that Obama’s accusation that Assad had been responsible for the August 2013 sarin attack in Syria is a lie, and that Obama and his allies are the actual people who were behind that sarin attack. It opened: «Evidence leads directly to the White House, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, CIA Director John Brennan, Saudi Intelligence Chief Prince Bandar, and Saudi Arabia´s Interior Ministry». It described the scheme, by the White House, plus Saudi King Salman, plus Turkey’s President Erdogan, plus Qatar’s Emir Thani, to run sarin-precursor chemicals from Muammar Gaddafi’s stockpiles through Turkey into Syria, to be turned there into sarin, so that the 21 August 2013 gassing in Ghouta Syria resulted, and it was blamed, by these liars, against Assad, so that it could be used by US President Obama as the excuse to do to Assad what Obama and his allies had already done to Gaddafi.
There were many subsequent news-reports, by Seymour Hersh and others, which documented different aspects of this operation, but none gave a fuller picture of it than did the original, by Christof Lehmann.
By no coincidence, Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi, Bashar al-Assad, and Ukraine’s Viktor Yanukovych, all were leaders who had been friendly toward Russia’s Vladimir Putin. The idea among the Western aristocracies is to eliminate all of Putin’s foreign allies, and then to get rid of Putin himself, because Putin refuses to buckle to Western control.
As regards jihadist groups such as Al-Qaeda and even ISIS: though they’re of big concern to Western publics, Western aristocrats are far more concerned to conquer Russia. Their foreign policies display this top priority of theirs. To these aristocrats, jihadists are just a side-show. The main event is Russia. The end of communism, and of the USSR, and of the Warsaw Pact, don’t really make any difference to them. They want the land, and its resources. They don’t care about the people on it – anywhere. Just nuke ’em, maybe? It’s a messy job, but it’s the type of job for people like Dan Barina. Western taxpayers pay their salaries, but the people who control what they do are the Western aristocrats.
Thus, for example, Obama’s National Security Strategy 2015 uses the term «aggression» 18 times, and 17 of them refer to Russia; none of them refer to Al-Qaeda, nor to ISIS, nor to the Sauds and the other Arabic royal families, who finance jihadist groups. (Their only demand upon them is to avoid perpetrating their terrorism within their own countries – to do it only abroad.) However, if the West’s enemies are their own aristocracies, which control both their government and their ‘news’ media, then it makes sense that their propaganda will blame Russia and its allies, for everything they can concoct to blame them. Where the public’s main enemy is in charge, it’s natural for that enemy’s chief foreign enemy to be blamed by the government and the ‘news’ media.
Western governments have been heisted by Western aristocrats. This is what has become of «Western ‘democracy’» – and not only of Western kings and princes such as reign in the Arabic countries. They’re all actually tyrannies, even the ones (such as Obama) who speak pretty phrases – who lie right and left about why they are doing what they are doing.
The entire US alliance – all of the aristocracies that comprise it – are rotten to the core. Millions of refugees have poured into Europe, and the publics in Europe are outraged, but the people who are behind it all are their own nation’s leadership (both elected and unelected), who support or even participate in American invasions and coups – not those refugees, from the mass-murder and chaos those Western leaders had caused, in Iraq, in Libya, in Ukraine, in Syria, and elsewhere. The publics in the West take the terrorist attacks and other blows, while their government and media blame Russia and its allied countries such as the BRICS, though the real villains are their own national leadership, and the leadership of «the Western alliance» – the invasion-alliance.
The sickness, that’s destroying the world, emanates from Washington and Riyadh, not from Moscow and Beijing. The proper name for it is «conquest». This is not the way authentic democracy functions. Feudalism used to function this way. Fascism now does. And now, the biggest of all its Big Lies is that it’s all being done in order to «promote world peace and security». It’s like in George Orwell’s allegorical novel, 1984.
The real enemy lies within, where it reigns, even in the outlying aristocracies. It calls itself «the Western alliance». It’s not only responsible for the invasions that are increasingly a curse upon the world; it (via the «Collective Defense» provision of the NATO portion of it) constitutes the hair-trigger for global nuclear annihilation.
Either NATO will end, or the world as we’ve always known and wanted to live in, will. It’s one or the other. George Herbert Walker Bush left us this curse upon the world, and the challenge today is to end NATO now, because, if it shouldn’t have ended when the Soviet Union and its Warsaw Pact did, then when should it end – or is it going to end only when the world-as-we’ve-known-it ends: in nuclear annihilation? If it’s not going to end in nuclear annihilation, then a global decision will have to be made, that NATO is a criminal organization, which must be ended now.
The result of that would be a better and a safer world, for everybody. Aristocratic dreams of world-conquest have already reached beyond the danger-point, to the alarm-bell. If the solution is not now, it will be the final solution for everybody. The dreams of Obama and many others in the US aristocracy, for «Prompt Global Strike» and «The Rise of US Nuclear Primacy», are a mythical solution that will actually lead inevitably to such a final solution –not only for Russians, but for everyone.
Peter S Rieth, at East-West Accord, headlined on April 28th, «Are Poland’s Elites Itching for War with Russia?» and he documented that they are, and that their hatred of Russians goes back at least to when «Poland invaded Kiev in 1919». He vaguely urges the Obama Administration to withdraw its thousands of new troops and new weapons from Poland, because, «The United States fails to recognize that although it will presumably retain command over any American troops eventually stationed in Poland, it will be helpless in the face of Polish impetuosity». But his statement is ambiguous, weak, and even evasive: the actual reason that (as he only implicitly acknowledges) the Polish aristocracy’s «impetuosity» could produce World War III, is that both Poland and the US have signed the NATO Treaty with its mutual-defense Article Five saying, in effect, that whenever one member-nation claims to have been attacked by Russia, the US will launch its nuclear weapons against Russia. The only rational opinion of such a commentary as that, is: Cut it out! The reality is: End NATO now!! NATO after 1991 is a criminal organization, the biggest threat to the entire world; and, such pusillanimous commentaries, which don’t even point to the real hair-trigger for nuclear war, are worthless.
Nothing short of ending NATO now, will suffice. Gorbachev ended the Warsaw Pact in 1991. When will NATO end – or will the world end first?
The worst part of it is: Germany, France, and the UK, haven’t yet withdrawn from NATO. Until they do, NATO will continue to be the red-hot danger it is. No rational voter in any of those countries will vote for any politician who fails to state clearly: End NATO Now! We must withdraw from NATO!!
