New “Chlorine Gas Barrel Bomb” Propaganda Video Custom Made for Obama’s New “Red Line” in Syria – Kurdistan Waits in Wings

by Scott Creighton (H/T Nancy)

UPDATE: Go over to carinaragno’s website to read about how three U.S. servicemen were recently photographed in Kobani helping Kurdish separatists fighting against the Syrian government for their new Kurdistan homeland.

———-

Obama and folks like Rand Paul, are trying to take the northern half of Syria and give it to the pro-Western Kurds as part of their new Kurdistan. We can’t let them do it.

Two weeks ago the United States rammed through a seemingly meaningless resolution in the UN Security Council which basically said the legitimate government in Syria that Obama is determined to oust from office had better not drop barrel bombs filled with chlorine gas on their own people or Barack will start bombing the people of that country like he did when they made up lies about Gaddafi and started a “no fly zone” over there.

It was the “new” red line for Obama. You might remember the “old” red line for Obama involved the use of chemical weapons and just as soon as that was tossed out there, the “moderate” terrorists run by the likes of John McCain staged a nice chemical weapons attack and the Obama administration and all of the MSM tried to frame Assad for it. They failed miserably and it was all forgotten and forgiven. We still fund the “moderate” terrorist friends of John McCain who used the chemical weapons.

Two days ago a video surfaced which claims to show victims of exactly the same kind of weapon that was defined as the “new red line” for Obama. What a coincidence.

Obama’s Salvador Option in Iraq: Death Squads Getting a Little Mainstream Attention… a little

by Scott Creighton

The consequence of not mentioning the connection between the US and the Iranian-backed Badr Brigade militia, the US-backed Wolf Brigade and other Special Police Commando units, or the extent of American recruitment, training, command, and control of these units[19] distorted perceptions of events in Iraq, creating the impression of senseless violence initiated by the Iraqis themselves and concealing the American hand in the planning and execution of the most savage forms of violence. Dirk Adriaensens, Brussels Tribunal

The fervor over the fake “burning man” video is laughable to the point of tears. It’s ridiculous actually when you put that one guy acting in a movie pretending to be about to die, in context of what our secret warriors have really done to millions of civilians over the past few decades. What our secret warriors, our “freedom fighters”, are STILL doing in Iraq as we speak.

Today, the New York Times had to shed a tiny bit of light on the reality creeping out of occupied Iraq and that reality is… yes, our puppet regime has unleashed organized death squads (just like I wrote about nearly a year ago and again in Aug.) on the population of their country who happen to opposed the corrupt, brutal government we installed.

Of course, the New York Times, the sickening subservient sycophants to global power structures that they are, had to present these monsters in the kindest, most endearing light they could muster. This is the new face of the old death squads of the Iraq Salvador Option under President Peace Prize’s administration, so of course, the Times had to present them like Bill Clinton playing a sax on Saturday Night Live.

This is how the New York Times presents death squads in Iraq

How Do Barney Fife and Fidel Castro Factor Into the Biggest News Story of the Year?

by Scott Creighton

I wish to see if I can connect a few dots here, so bear with me.

Putting aside “ISIS™” for a moment and the “Big Story” about some talking head on MSNBC lying to folks (yeah, there’s some news for you) what are the biggest geopolitical trends in the news today? Is it the fact that Syriza, the new “Radical Left™” brand of 3rd Way centrist ideology (think “CHANGE™” circa 2008) seems to have forgotten what the term “odious debt” means?

In international law, odious debt, also known as illegitimate debt, is a legal theory that holds that the national debt incurred by a regime for purposes that do not serve the best interests of the nation, should not be enforceable. Such debts are, thus, considered by this doctrine to be personal debts of the regime that incurred them and not debts of the state. In some respects, the concept is analogous to the invalidity of contracts signed under coercion. Wiki

Is that the biggest story in the world today? Well, if you consider the fact that international debt has risen by 57 trillion dollars since the global economic terrorism of 2008, coupled with the fact that much if not ALL of that new additional debt may be declared odious were Greece to set the precedent, well, that could very well be the story of the year. The story of the decade or the millennium in fact.

But it isn’t, because they wont (“use us to implement the European programme” Varoufakis).

And the usually antagonistic ones, the Webster Tarpley’s of the “interwebs”, aren’t really calling for Syriza to live up to their campaign pledge and do that.

How about “ISIS™”? Now that the MTV music video director and their team made that “burning man” video, seems like all the world wants a piece of “ISIS™” butt.

We have senators and congressman lining up to get in front of anyone with a camera so they can pledge their undying devotion to autocratic, despotic regimes like those in Jordan, UAE, Bahrain and Qatar for the sole purpose of providing them weapons and training, all paid for with your tax dollars while they say they can’t afford to pay teachers here in the states.

No money for teachers or disabled folks but we got butt-loads of cash to heap on dictators from the Middle East to help bomb Syria into regime change. Funny how that works, ain’t it?

We have “progressive” TV personalities spending enormous amounts of their airtime proving what warmongering hawks they can be just like the neocons of yesteryear they pilloried for a decade.

We have the Obama administration, the President Peace Prize farce, presenting their own version, a hand-crafted document they expect to be passed without debate, authorizing war anywhere, anytime against anyone they say is supporting “ISIS™”. That new AUMF document, one usually crafted by congress, will be slapped on the desks of leading congressmen sometime today or tomorrow. It’s something this president has wanted since they created “ISIS™” now that the old one from 2001 is a bit sketchy considering the fact that it names al Qaeda as the enemy and we now call them “moderates” and are funding them in Syria.

And all of this is based on what? A ridiculous MTV-styled video custom made for the purpose of providing the pretext for what is happening right now and released on the very same day the King of Jordan was visiting Obama and congress looking for money to fight “ISIS™”. (I will write more about that video later this morning)

Are those the biggest stories in the world today?

No. Not in my opinion.

So what is? What is the one big story everyone knows about and no one is talking about and how does Barney Fife and Fidel Castro of all people fit into this? Have I gone crazy? Inquiring minds want to know.

David Haines and the Hundred Billion in “Humanitarian Aid” Lost in Afghanistan

by Scott Creighton

Thanks to the “ISIS Crisis” and several phony beheading videos, “humanitarian” and military contractors alike are frothing at the mouth in anticipation for the big paydays ahead. They are packing their bags, kissing their kids goodbye and heading over to Iraq to provide whatever “humanitarian” service pays them the most. Let’s call them “humanitarian mercenaries” shall we?

Iraq this time around is not going to be as big as it was before,” said Roger Carstens, a former special operations officer who has served as a contracted military adviser in Somalia and Afghanistan. “That said, this new war will present an opportunity for the companies that have a resident train and advising capability to contribute to this new effort.

President Obama has asked Congress to authorize $500 million to train a new Syrian opposition out of Saudi Arabia. That money would be part of a $5 billion fund Obama requested this spring from Congress to help train and equip U.S. allies to fight terrorists. Daily Beast

$500 million to train opposition to Syria out of Saudi Arabia? “ISIS” is Salafist. Wahhabist. Saudi. What a coincidence, huh?

As part of Obama’s new Coalition of the Willing, he’s also teaming up U.S. forces with the most reprehensible dictatorships in the Middle East, most of which have a large population of Salafist/Wahhabist terrorists to hire from: Egypt, Jordan, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates.

Nice company we keep, huh?

Yesterday we briefly explored the “humanitarian” work of David Haines, the most recent supposed “victim” of the phony “ISIS” beheading videos. We showed where he was linked to various rebuilding efforts in nations which had recently been forced to undergo a regime change by the U.S. State Department working hand in hand with SOCOM and the CIA.

These are just some of the “partners” that his current and former employers enjoyed doing business with in places like Croatia, South Sudan, Libya and Syria:

  • United States Agency for International Development
  • United States Department of State
  • Open Society Foundations
  • Asian Development Bank
  • World Bank
  • United Nations Democracy Fund

This morning there is an article out of McClatchy’s Washington Bureau which puts Mr. Haines’ “humanitarian work” in a little better perspective.

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.

Tearing Down the Walls in Baghdad While BiBi Gets Bitch-slapped

by Scott Creighton

You gotta love it

All across the world people are saying no more. In Baghdad, they are tearing down those concrete walls that you and I paid to have installed to keep the people of Iraq from the neoliberal “Green Zone” which OCCUPIES their capital. McDonald’s and Burger King thrive in the relative calm of the free-market Green Zone they call Baghdad these days, but now, the people of Iraq have said they have had enough. They are tearing down the walls that separate them from their future, tearing down the walls that keep them from the oligarchs who have been chopping up Iraq and selling it off at wholesale prices.  This is beautiful.

Fresh protests hit Iraqi cities

Reports of deaths as thousands turn out to demand better service delivery and jobs from government.

from Al Jazeera English

Violent protests have taken place at various locations in Iraq, with anti-government protesters rallying against corruption, poor basic services and high unemployment.

In Basra, the country’s second largest city, about 1,000 people rallied on Friday, demanding better service delivery from the government, jobs and improved pensions.

They called for the provincial governor to resign, and blocked a bridge for an hour. Protesters shouted slogans saying that while Friday’s protests would be peaceful, ones held in the future may not be.
