Press TV Reporter Murdered by Hillary’s Heroes in Damascus

by Scott Creighton

A Press TV reporter was shot and killed by a “rebel” sniper in Syria today. 33 year old Maya Naser and Al-Alam Damascus Bureau Chief Hosein Mortada were covering yesterday’s twin bombing attacks when they came under fire from the NATO backed “professional jihadists”. Mortada was wounded in the leg.

Maya was one of Press TV’s English language news correspondents. Looks like someone wished to reduce Press TV’s accessibility to their growing American audience.

Press TV’s newsroom director had this public statement about the murder;

Israel’s Iranian Solution: “Iran’s citizens should be starved” Israeli Officials Say

by Scott Creighton

Just ahead of the Parliamentary Elections in Iran, Israel is once again stepping up their terrorist rhetoric in order to send another frightening message to the people of that sovereign nation.

Israeli officials have openly called for a starvation campaign against the civilian population of Iran in order to stop them from building a nuclear weapon which they are not building. Muslims, Christians, Jews and everyone else should suffer and starve to death to protect Israel from non-existent WMDs.

Not only would the application of such a program be considered a terrorist act (and one which brings to mind a certain dark chapter in 20th century fascist horror) but the threat itself is itself an act of terrorism.

As expected, the corporatist media is silent on the obvious irony of such a horrific statement coming from the leaders of the self proclaimed “Jewish State”. This is Israel’s Iranian Solution.

Iran Targets Weakest of EU Members (PIIGS) with their Counter Sanctions Plan in Order to Threaten Entire European Union

by Scott Creighton

Press TV has announced that Iran is going to cut oil supplies to 6 of the EU nations that voted to support the US/British oil and banking sanctions imposed on Iran last month including Netherlands, Spain, Italy, France, Greece and Portugal. Notice something interesting there? The countries are mainly the nations designated as the “PIIGS” countries that the EU and European Central Bank so called them due to their poor economic standing after the bank-made global economic crisis of 2008: Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, and Spain (PIIGS). Only Ireland has been left off that list of countries who will feel the brunt of Iran’s counter sanction proposal.

This announcement has been made prior to Iran’s parliament’s approval of the bill enacting this counter sanction into law, but few would anticipate the defeat of such a measure.

Is it a coincidence that the weakest of the EU nations and two of the leading globalist movers and shakers are being targeted by the Iranian plan? Of course not. The obvious threat here is to seriously weaken the economies of these 4 troubled nations and in so doing, blow the EU completely apart. Everyone understands that Greece alone nearly brought the EU to a crippled end and now, with Greece and the three other weakest economies in the cross hairs, it would seem that Iran’s plan to combat the dishonest sanction campaign is to target them where they are weakest and thus topple the EU in the process.

Neo-liberal Destabilization Plan for Syria Continues: How long till we are on that “Seven Countries” list?

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Russia opposes ‘Libyan scenario’ in Syria and will block resolution

Syrian government accepted Russian brokered peace talks with opposition

The Syrian “rebels/activists” rejected a Russian brokered peace talks

The Syrian “rebels/activists” sabotage state run natural gas pipeline and murdered a doctor

——

So, I came back to see him (in the Pentagon) a few weeks later (October of 2001) and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan and I said “Are we still going to war with Iraq?” and he said “It’s worse than that.” He said.. he reached over on his desk and he picked up a piece of paper and he said “I just got this down from upstairs today..” meaning the Secretary of Defense’s office… and he said “this is a memo that describes how we are going to take out 7 countries in 5 years.. starting with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finishing off Iran.Gen. Westley Clark

When every single MSM “news” outlet is on the same page, reporting “activist said” unsubstantiated propaganda pertaining to Libya, Somalia and Syria as unquestionable fact, the current administration is free to do whatever they want with no fear of reprisal from their so-called “progressive” supporters. That means the Obama administration of “CHANGE” is able to openly continue yet another horrendous and illegal policy of the Bush administration, the neoliberalization of several state centered nations, unencumbered by the inherent restrictions of democracy ie the “will of the people” who would never support premeditated invasions and occupations of other nations for the express interests of multinational corporations and financial institutions.

Just as the complicit corporatist media assisted the Bush regime in manufacturing consent for the illegal invasion of Iraq, they are doing the exact same thing now under the Obama administration as they openly continue to fulfill the “7 countries in 5 years” agenda set so long ago.

Russia Today Publishes Misinformation About Iranian Response to EU Sanction Plan

by Scott Creighton

Russia Today is reporting (without providing a link or a direct quote) that the Fars News Agency, a so-called “semi-official” news agency in Iran, has stated that a senior Iranian official has made the statement that Iran “would definitely” close the Strait of Hormuz if an EU oil embargo disrupts their oil exports.

“Tensions in the Gulf could reach a breaking point as a senior Iranian official said Iran would “definitely” close the Strait of Hormuz if an EU oil embargo disrupted the export of crude oil, the semi-official Fars news agency reports.” Russia Today

This statement by Russia Today is misleading on several fronts.

U.S. Joint Operation with Israel Postponed: Did the Globalists Just Blink?

by Scott Creighton

It is being reported (here, herehere and here ) that the United States has announced that it is going to postpone “Austere Challenge 12”, the US-Israel joint-missile defense drill slated to start up in April. According to most reports the U.S. has backed off of the potentially inflammatory drills due to current instability of the region and the lack of evidence of Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon. But there may be more to it than meets the eye of the average MSM stenographer.

Was this run-up to WWIII simply a game of imperial brinksmanship? Were the NATO powers trying to force Russia and China to allow a Libyan type sanction against Syria by threatening all out world war starting in Iran? Did we blink first or did the major powers who have been defending Syria agree to some backroom deal trading their tacit support of a R2P bombing of Syria for an agreement to leave Iran alone for now?

Beyond Pretense: The Global Free Market Wars Finally Acknowledged (and another U.S.S. Liberty event on the horizon?)

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: After all attempts to frame Iran have failed thus far, a Jerusalem Post article (written by a former Israeli intelligence officer turned Operation Mockingbird style “journalist“) suggests Iran will provide the needed pretext for the war themselves by attacking a U.S. warship. Get that? They failed to frame Iran for everything from rigged elections to 9/11 and now, out of the blue, they expect Iran will make the unusually stupid move of attacking a U.S. warship and setting themselves up for regime change and perhaps a million dead Iranians in the process.

A Prison Planet article about this frightening prediction mentions Gulf of Tonkin and the USS Maine false flag attacks but for some reason never mentions the prolonged Israeli attack on the U.S.S. Liberty (see details at the end of this article) which looked to pull us into their conflict with Egypt until a Russian sub was spotted nearby watching the hours long attack and the Liberty simply refused to sink. Go figure.

UPDATE 2: Chris Mathews covered the Israeli assassination of the Iranian nuclear scientist yesterday. You might think that is good, but it is not because of HOW they covered it; they are setting up a narrative explaining WHY the Iranians would launch a military attack of some kind against the U.S. Navy. And that is EXACTLY the same thing the Jerusalem Post wrote about the other day.

The story line according the Hardball goes something like this:

  • The Obama administration doesn’t want a conflict with Iran (even though it’s obvious that they do want a regime change in Iran)
  • The new sanctions on Iran are making them desperate (even though South Korea, China, North Korea, Venezuela, Russia, Pakistan, India and others are not going to abide by them, and neither is Halliburton for that matter)
  • The Israeli attack on a nuclear scientist is going to prompt Iran to attack the U.S. (even though they know it was not the U.S. that killed their scientist and even though there are Israeli ships in the Gulf as well as U.S. ships)
  • There are mentions of Iran firing a missile at a U.S. warship or mining the Straight of Hormuz (does that remind anyone of the Cheonan incident, or is it just me?)
  • Israel will then “help” the United States and be the good guys by striking back at Iran.

Mathews and Hardball are not helping us by exposing the underlying truth in this situation but rather they are laying the groundwork for the official narrative of another false flag attack even before it plays out. The Iranians would never launch an attack on a US warship because Israel killed another of their scientists. That premise is ludicrous at best. And yet, there it is.

UPDATE 3: British Prime Minister has gone to meet with the Saudi Royal family just days after the Saudi ruling regime killed protesters and hours after the British issue a warning to their citizens about traveling to that region due to “conflicts” escalating.

UPDATE 4: According to the complicit MSM, an “independent news service” known as irannuc.ir is claiming that the Iranian people buried the nuclear scientist chanting “death to the US. death to Israel” and they claim that Iran (quoting unnamed sources) is planning an attack against the West in retaliation. Of course the only videos of the burial show mourners saying “death to the terrorists”

It appears the “independent news service” (read as US financed destabilization campaign NGO) is helping to push the “Iran is going to attack” narrative.

This irannuc propaganda is already on Fox News and MSN alike.

For years I have been using the phrase “The Global Free Market Wars” to explain what is happening around the world. I didn’t coin the phrase, I don’t know who did, I wish I had. The pretense is coming to a end.  The Global War on Terror is and has been since it’s inception, a fraud. A lie. 935 lies for Iraq; 1 Big Lie for Afghanistan (built on literally tons of smaller lies); NGO lies for Libya; a Fox News generated lie for Pakistan; a retroactive lie for Yemen; a lie of omission for Sudan; an opportunistic lie for North Korea; and finally, a string of lies for Iran.

American Everyman Imperialist War and Political Ticker

by Scott Creighton

Things are speeding up and we are rushing headlong into 2012, the year of real “CHANGE” in America. Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta are busy prodding Iran, Syria and Russia into all-out war while the presidential race is neatly boxed in with all neoliberal candidates arguing about who would privatize Social Security fastest leaving Granny to feast on Wal-mart brand deregulated cat food while their friends in Wall Street post still more record bonuses.

Let’s check out some of the latest news.

Destabilization Campaigns

After being demonized for months for not letting Arab League observers into Syria, the Assad government has allowed them to come see what’s really happening in their country. Terrorists attacked an area as the observers advance team showed up last Saturday. They were hoping to derail the process but the observers showed up anyway and now that they are there, their leader has made it clear that they saw “nothing frightening” in Homs, supposedly the epicenter of all that violence, at least that’s what “activists say” journalism has been reporting in the MSM. The MSM seem to side with the al Qaeda linked Syrian opposition when they claim it was an “inside job

Let’s take a quick look back at some of the failed fake news stories and propaganda campaigns focused on destabilizing Syria so that we can force regime change and our own special brand of neoliberalized Shock Therapy “democracy”

Advocates of War With Iran Take Some Media Hits

by Sherwood Ross, BlacklistedNews

Advocates of a hot war with Iran have just taken some heavy hits from a Harvard professor of international relations and two prominent journalists.

Harvard’s Professor Stephen Walt has savaged an article in the forthcoming “Foreign Affairs” magazine(Jan.-Feb.)  by Matthew Kroenig titled, “Time to Attack Iran: Why a Strike Is the Least Bad Option.” Kroenig is an Assistant Professor of Government at Georgetown University who wrote:

“The truth is that a military strike intended to destroy Iran’s nuclear program, if managed carefully, could spare the region and the world a very real threat and dramatically improve the long-term national security of the United States.”

Calling this “a remarkably poor piece of advocacy,” Harvard’s Walt writes that Kroenig “makes the case for war by assuming everything will go south if the U.S. does not attack and that everything will go swimmingly if it does. This is not fair-minded ‘analysis’; it is simply a brief for war designed to reach a predetermined conclusion,” Walt writes of the “Foreign Affairs” piece.

Iran Did 9/11?: Part 1 – The Excellent Foppery of the World

by Scott Creighton

Families of a very small percentage of the victims of 9/11 seek to steal 2 billion dollars from the people of Iran based on Donald Rumsfeld quotes, the absence of an Iranian stamp on passports given to the hijackers by the US State Department, and the hearsay testimony of an already discredited MEK terrorist.

“This is the excellent foppery of the world, that,
when we are sick in fortune,–often the surfeit
of our own behavior,–we make guilty of our
disasters the sun, the moon, and the stars: as
if we were villains by necessity; fools by
heavenly compulsion; knaves, thieves, and
treachers, by spherical predominance; drunkards,
liars, and adulterers, by an enforced obedience of
planetary influence; and all that we are evil in,
by a divine thrusting on: an admirable evasion
of whoremaster man, to lay his goatish
disposition to the charge of a star” William Shakespeare, King Lear, Edmund the Bastard, 1.2.132

Edmund the bastard lays bare the excellent foppery of the world, that as we suffer from the our own misdeeds, we find ways to lay the blame elsewhere as if by some divine plan our fate was not of our own design. The Sun (al Qaeda), the Moon (Iraq), and the Stars (Iran) have now all been blamed for what was our own invention, all that we are evil in. Thus is the nature of whore-master man.

The Mythical Mustard Gas Shells: More Ridiculous Propaganda from Sophomoric Mockingbird Press

by Scott Creighton

In a new vein of war-mongering, the Washington Post has a report out claiming that Iran provided artillery shells to Libya under the Gadhafi regime for use with mustard gas, a chemical weapon of mass destruction. The claim published by the Mockingbird Press agent Washington Post, is devoid of any photos of these shells and each official whom they quote in the story chooses to remain anonymous, due to the “sensitive nature of the accusation”. The shells were supposedly discovered by the Libyan al Qaeda linked “rebels” who clearly have a great deal to be thankful to the NATO countries that put them in power. The obvious conflict of interest on these claims cannot be ignored considering how little actual evidence they have presented so far and the fact that no US official will go on record with these claims.

IAEA Iran Report: New Spin Same as the Old Spin

by Scott Creighton

The gist of the new IAEA spin on the Iranian nuclear program is that a Russian (who is actually Ukrainian) nuclear weapons expert (who is actually an expert at making nano-diamonds for industrial use) worked in Iran from ’96 to 2000 helping them design a PLAN for creating a process to enrich material to make a nuclear weapon (uranium based nuclear weapon). That’s the main thrust of this new report, that Iran developed the knowledge of how to enrich uranium and that they could restart their program somewhere in secret.

Another Propaganda Campaign to Destabilize Iran: A New Dark Age is Upon Us

by Scott Creighton

According to the “liberal” newspaper the Guardian, President Ahmadinejad is dabbling in black magic in an attempt to bring the anti-Christ to power.

God knows, I wish I was making this up.

A new propaganda campaign focused on regime change in Iran has been launched by the Guardian and al Jazeera. It looks as if the economic hit-men and the CIA’s destabilization teams are in the process of trying to create yet another narrative which could be used to explain another fake “popular uprising” like the one they staged a year ago or so ago after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won the election.

Yet this story has a bit of an unmistakable “Glenn Beck like end-times scenario” aspect to it that is more than a little troubling. If the Dark Ages were about cultural, educational, and economic deterioration, this new campaign of propaganda may signify a dangerous turn in the evolution of our society.

The Fake Color Revolution is Back in Iran – Globalist Destabilization Efforts Under Cover of Egypt’s Real Revolution

by Scott Creighton

In every crisis, real or manufactured, there is… opportunity.

Contrary to Julian Assange’s assessment, the current wave of pro-democracy movements in the Middle East (recently called a “virus” by John McCain) was not created by the CIA honeypot called Wikileaks. Nor, as the one-time Lyndon LaRouche follower Webster Tarpley has put it, was it all a CIA destabilization plan. There are causes that track back to the United States, English banks, and Wall Street which mainly deal with accelerating food prices due to rampant speculation, a global wave of unemployment due to a planned demolition of the global economy, and the despotic dictatorial rule by U.S. and British friendly puppet regimes, so yes, you can trace the roots of these outbreaks back to the global interests the CIA serves.

But these uprisings are mainly in countries that already serve our “national interests” ie our banks and multi-national corporations and many of them are critically important to ongoing venture capital programs like Egypt (Suez Canal) and Yemen (Hunt Oil Pipeline) for starters.

So why lite those fires when the outcome is uncertain at best?

C.I.A. destabilization plans are used in countries that are not already friendly to our interests (see above) such as Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, and of course… Iran.  The differences between the real revolutions and the fake ones are very important. We cannot forget.
