If Ukraine were to explode, or implode, would Uncle Sam, Aunt Matilda and Sister Sara give a damn?

Russian military presents “proof” of Turkey’s role in ISIL oil trade

Posted by feww on December 2, 2015

The “NATO-protected” ISIL targets that coalition airstrikes in Syria avoided for more than 14 months

Media briefing “Russian Federation Armed Forces fighting against international terrorism. New data”

Satellite and aerial images taken on November 14, show 3,722 oil tankers, trucks and trailers waiting to carry oil stolen by ISIL, AlNusra Front and affiliated terrorist groups into Turkey, says the report.

“The fleet of terrorist [vehicles] features up to 8,500 tanker trucks which transport up to 200,000 barrels of oil daily [into Turkey.]”

Hundreds of oil tanker trucks cross the Turkey-Syria border each day, carrying oil stolen by the terrorists to the Batman refinery in Turkey.

Some of the oil, stolen from both Iraq and Turkey, is transported to two of Turkey’s Mediterranean ports and from there exported to other countries.

ISIL rakes in about three million dollars per day from the illegal oil trade, said the report.

Indict NATO – Stop Global Terrorism!

Posted by feww on November 27, 2015

Sent by a reader

Global terrorism sponsored by NATO members could spark WWIII

The Wahhabi/Salafi jihadist group known as Daesh, the local acronym for Islamic State (IS, aka, ISIL), is composed of extremist Sunni Arabs from Iraq and Syria. It currently controls an occupied territory with about 10 million people in Iraq and Syria and, through loyal offshoots, has control over small areas of Afghanistan, Libya and Nigeria, with other affiliates operating in North Africa and South Asia.

The terrorist group has claimed responsibility for a string of recent (2015) bombings across the globe that include

  • Paris: Charlie Hebdo (12 killed) – Jan. 2015
  • Libya: Corinthia Hotel shooting (five killed)
  • Tunisia: Museum shooting (22 killed more than 50 wounded)
  • Yemen: Mosque bombing (142 killed, at least 351 wounded)
  • Tunisia: Beach resort shooting (38 killed)
  • Kuwait: Explosion in mosque (27 killed)
  • Turkey: Kurdish peace rally bombing in Ankara (102 killed, more than 400 wounded)
  • Sinai, Egypt: Russian plane (224 killed)
  • Beirut: Bourj el-Barajneh Bombing (43 killed, many injured )
  • Paris: Shooting and suicide attacks (at least 130 killed, hundreds more injured)
  • Tunisia: Bus carrying the Presidential guards exploded (12 killed) Nov. 2015

Thousands of others including Iraqis, Syrians and Kurds, be it Christians, Yazidis, Shi’a Muslims and others, have also been killed by ISIL and their affiliates this year.

Sponsoring the Daesh Terrorists

Daesh is smuggling oil on a “commercial scale” into Turkey. Turkish middlemen including government officials are profiting from the lucrative, but illegal trade, analysts say.

Photos of Turkish President’s son Necmettin Bilal Erdogan, having dinner with an alleged Daesh leader in an Istanbul restaurant, were recently posted on Turkish social media.

“IS has big money, hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars, from selling oil. In addition they are protected by the military of an entire nation. One can understand why they are acting so boldly and blatantly. Why they kill people in such atrocious ways. Why they commit terrorist acts across the world, including in the heart of Europe,” said Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier this week.

Daesh and their supporters have formed a “living oil pipe” stretched from their and rebel-controlled areas of Syria into Turkey, said the Russian President in a joint press conference with his French counterpart in Moscow. “Day and night they are going to Turkey. Trucks always go there loaded, and back from there – empty.”

ISIS Funded by 40 Countries, Including G20 Members —Putin

Unfortunately, the air campaign against the terrorists, led by the NATO kingpin, has [so far] spared the Islamic State terrorists’ most lucrative source of income.

The 40 countries that sponsor Daesh and global terrorism must necessarily include Saudi Arabia, Qatar and UAE, as well as other Islamic nations under the influence of Wahhabism. An estimated 6 million Wahhabis plague the Persian Gulf region (compared to 28.5 million Sunnis and 89 million Shia residents).

Wahhabi Support for Global Terrorism

Wahhabism (aka, Salafism) is an “orthodox” form of Sunni Islam, which insists on a literal interpretation of the Muslims’ holy book, the Qur’an. The followers are brainwashed to believe that all those who don’t share their views of Islam are enemies of god, thus misinterpreting and distorting Islam, experts say.

Daesh represents Wahhabism in its darkest form. Their violent fundamentalist doctrine rejects all non-Wahhabi Islam. They are especially intolerant of the Shi’a Islam, repeatedly attacking and massacring the Shi’a worshipers in mosques across the Middle East. Their targets have previously included also Christians, Yazidis and followers of all other traditional religions.

Saudi Arabia is the main sponsor of the jihadists. The Saudi royal family is financing a global campaign to recruit, indoctrinate and incite terrorism. Daesh could not have grown without Saudi sponsorship.

THE INVOLVEMENT OF SALAFISM/WAHHABISM IN THE SUPPORT AND SUPPLY OF ARMS TO REBEL GROUPS AROUND THE WORLD

Qatar and Saudi involvement
In a 2013 External Policy Document, the European Parliament exposed the roles of Wahhabi and Salafi groups that are involved in the “support and supply of arms to rebel groups around the world.” The report warned about the Wahhabi/Salafi organizations across the world and stressed that “no country in the Muslim world is safe from their operations … as they always aim to terrorize their opponents and arouse the admiration of their supporters.”

  • Some of those terrorist groups have since been infiltrated and used (“double- zombified”) by agents of world powers to achieve other agenda.

Daesh (ISIL) is selling oil at $15–25 per barrel, much cheaper than the Brent benchmark, trading at $45 to $50, said a member of the expert council of the Russian Oil Industry Union.

“By reselling it, Ankara has the opportunity to earn extra income and continue to bomb the Kurds, saying its bombing radicals,” he said.

Is there a precedence for suing state sponsors of terrorism?

To stop global terrorism, those nations that have lost citizens in terror attacks, must indict NATO and sue the organization for damages!

There’s ample evidence to indict Turkey and several other members of NATO, as well as the G20 member countries, including Saudi Arabia and Qatar, for state-sponsored terrorism, and sue them for damages.

Libya forced to compensate Lockerbie bombing victims

In October 2008, Libya was forced to pay $1.5 billion into a fund to compensate relatives of Lockerbie bombing victims. The money was part of a $1.8 billion deal reached between the United States and Libya to settle outstanding terror claims held by terror victims from both countries. The remainder, $300 million, was earmarked for the victims of the 1986 Berlin disco bombing, victims of the 1989 UTA Flight 772 bombing, and Libyan victims of the 1986 US bombing of Tripoli and Benghazi.

Russian Warplane Shot Down near Syria-Turkey Border

Posted by feww on November 24, 2015

UPDATE: The Russian Defense Ministry has confirmed the Russian Su-24 military plane was shot down by a Turkish F-16 over Syrian territory. The plane was attacked while returning to Khmeimim airbase, said the Ministry, adding that the plane did not violate Turkish air space.

Report compiled by a reader

Turkey says it shot down Russian warplane

Excerpts from various reports

Turkish military: The Russian pilot had been warned at least 10 times  over five minutes the plane had violated Turkish airspace. Two of F-16 fighter jets shot down the plane.

Turkish PM Ahmet Davutoglu: Turkey has the right to respond to violations of its airspace.

Russian President Vladimir Putin: Turkey has stabbed Russia in the back by shooting down our warplane. They have acted as an accomplice to the terrorists. The plane was flying 1 km away from the Turkish border and posed no threat to Turkish national security.

Russia noticed of the flow of oil from Syrian territory under the control of terrorists to Turkey, Putin said.

Apparently, IS now not only receives revenue from the smuggling of oil, but also has the protection of a nation’s military, Putin said. This may explain why the terrorist group is so bold in taking acts of terrorism across the world, he added.

The incident will have grave consequences for Russia’s relations with Turkey, Putin warned.

The fact that Turkey did not try to contact Russia in the wake of the incident and rushed to call a NATO meeting instead is worrisome, Putin said. It appears that Turkey want NATO to serve the interests of IS, he added.

Putin said Russia respects the regional interests of other nations, but warned the atrocity committed by Turkey would not go without an answer

Russian Defense Ministry: A Russian Su-24 fighter has been shot down in Syria. The aircraft was flying at the altitude of 6,000 meters within the Syrian airspace.

“Today an aircraft from the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic crashed on the territory of Syria supposedly shot down from the ground.”

“During all the flight time, the aircraft was flying only within the borders of the Syrian territory. That was registered by objective monitoring data.”

MSM: Footage posted online allegedly shows Russian pilots from the downed jet laying motionless, possibly dead on the ground and surrounded by Syrian Turkmens.

UK Foreign Office: “Clearly this is a very serious incident, but it would be unwise to comment further until we have more certainty on the facts.”

Internet: Turkish PM has requested extraordinary NATO council meeting to inform members of downing of Russian jet. Meeting scheduled for 5pm Brussels time.

History: This was the first time a NATO country has shot down a Russian or Soviet war plane since the 1950s.

Added by Moderator

Francois Hollande: Was it something I said? The French President had called for both Washington and Moscow to set aside their policy divisions over Syria and “fight this terrorist army in a broad, single coalition.” Unknown to him, those “policy divisions” are clearly irreconcilable.

NATO risks provoking a new Cold War —CND General-Secretary

Britain’s Ministry of Defense (MoD) is placing a an order with General Dynamics worth £3.5 billion [$5.7billion] for 590 Scout Specialist Vehicles—the largest MoD order for armored vehicles since the Cold War (I). 

The vehicles will be “highly-agile, tracked, medium-weight armored fighting vehicle, providing British troops with state-of-the-art best-in-class protection,” said world’s 4th largest defense contractor.

Details of the deal were released to coincide with the NATO summit on Thursday, where President Obama is expected to call on European leaders to honor their military spending commitments and allocate at least 2 percent of their nations’ GDP to buying weapons.

“With the second-largest defense budget in NATO, meeting NATO’s 2 percent of GDP spending target and investing in new capabilities to deal with the emerging threats, we are ensuring Britain’s national security, staying at the forefront of the global race and providing leadership within NATO,” said Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron.

Meantime, Britain is spending about $80million on security operations during the summit, which has begun in Newport, Wales. Some 10,000 police officers, drafted from forces across the UK, will be protecting at least 61 heads of states and hundreds of VIPs from protesters.

The authorities have erected a 20-km ‘ring of steel’  to guard the summit.

NATO Expansion

Nato expansion
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has almost doubled in size—from 16 member states in 1990 to 28 in 2009. An additional 22 countries participate in NATO’s “Partnership for Peace program.”  Also, 15 other countries are involved in various programs. The combined military spending of NATO members amounts to more than 70% of the global total. Members have agreed to allocate 2% of their national GDP on military spending.

“NATO is a destabilizing global force”

“Far from promoting security, NATO is a destabilizing global force,” said CND General-Secretary Kate Hudson.

“Its war of aggression in Afghanistan has killed tens of thousands and left that country fragmented: the ripples of which are being felt across the region.”

“Through its insatiable expansion into Eastern Europe, capitalizing on the vacuum left following the collapse of the USSR, NATO has contributed to heightening tensions around Russia and Ukraine, and risks provoking a new Cold War.”

“NATO has shown itself for what it is: an interventionist, expansionist, military club which favours threats over diplomacy.”

“We don’t want US/NATO nukes on European soil. We don’t want its wars of aggression. And we’re here to challenge this aggressive alliance which makes all of us less safe. Tens of millions around the world want peace, justice and an end to NATO.”

Russia ‘Forced’ to Hold Military Drills in Response to Ukraine Op: Moscow

Posted by feww on April 24, 2014

GLOBAL CONFLICTS FOR NATURAL RESOURCES & ‘STRATEGIC ADVANTAGE’
NIGHTMARE SCENARIO 04
.

Russia begins extensive military drills at border following escalation of violence in E Ukraine

“The order to use force against civilians has already been given, and if this military machine is not stopped, the amount of casualties will only grow,” said Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu in Moscow.

“War games by NATO in Poland and the Baltic states are not helping the normalization of the situation. We are forced to react to the situation.”

“The special operation against pro-federalization protesters underway in the eastern Ukrainian city of Slaviansk has left five members of local self-defense forces dead and one policeman injured,” reported RIA Novosti, quoting he Ukrainian Interior Ministry as saying on Thursday.

Some 11,000 Ukrainian troops, 160 tanks, 230 armored carriers and at least 150 artillery pieces are deployed in the operation against anti-Kiev activists, said Shoigu.

“National guard units and Right Sector extremists are fighting against the peaceful population, as well as a volunteer Donbass ‘anti-terrorist’ unit. Also security and internal forces transferred to Lugansk and Donetsk from other areas of the country are suppressing dissent,” he said.

Protesters in Kharkiv, Donetsk, Gorlovka, Slaviansk and Kramatorsk consider the current Ukrainian government as “illegitimate” and are urging interim authorities to hold referendums similar to the one held in Crimea last month, which led to the republic’s reunification with Russia, said RIA Novosti.

Meanwhile, NATO began war games in Poland on Wednesday, and plans to hold military drills in the Baltic states next week.

‘1 Million Died’ from Afghan Heroin Since ‘War on Terror’

Posted by feww on April 3, 2013

NATO’s Needle War

“Afghan heroin has killed more than 1 million people worldwide since the ‘Operation Enduring Freedom’ began and over a trillion dollars has been invested into transnational organized crime from drug sales,” said the head of Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service, Viktor Ivanov. 

“Any impartial observer must admit the sad fact that the international community has failed to curb heroin production in Afghanistan since the start of NATO’s operation.” Ivanov said at the UN’s 56th session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs in Vienna.

  • Opium growth has increased by 18 per cent from 131,000 hectares (ha) to 154,000 [compared with 104,000 ha in 2005 and 7,606 ha in 2001] in the war-torn country, Ivanov told the conference.
  • Afghanistan produces about 90 per cent of the world’s opium.
  • Opium production in Afghanistan is up from 185 tons a year in 2001, prior to NATO’s invasion, to 5,800 tons in 2012.
  • Afghanistan produced about 820 tons of heroin in 2012, said Ivanov in his presentation.

Heroin kills more than 30,000 people in Russia every year, and nearly all of the deadly drug comes from Afghanistan, BBC reported Victor Ivanov as saying.

The heroin production in Afghanistan has now developed to a ‘global destabilizing factor,’ especially for Russia, Ivanov has previously stated.

Drug injection is the largest factor for the spread of HIV in the U.S.  A study by the National Institutes of Health found that 27 percent of all injecting drug users are HIV-infected. United States has an estimated 1 million heroin addicts.

The Anguished Cries of China Quake Nurse

Posted by feww on May 18, 2008

Why was the quake nurse reduced to tears and had to beg the soldiers to rescue children?

If rescuing the children wasn’t their priority, and clearly it wasn’t, what were the soldiers ordered to do?

Anguished Chinese Nurse Serving in the Earthquake Disaster Area:

Please Rescue The Children!

Photo below was taken by Jason Lee of Reuters news agency (China). The caption reads:

“A nurse holding a general’s written order begs soldiers to rescue surviving children still buried in the ruins of another nearby school in the old city district near a mountain at the earthquake-hit Beichuan county, Sichuan province, May 15, 2008. The soldiers are not under the command of the general, whose written order reads: ‘Please arrange for rescue operations at this school as quickly as possible.'”

What were the orders soldiers own general gave them?

When did the authorities decide they couldn’t cope with too many quake survivors?

A close up of the nurse’s face. Her heartfelt agony speaks a thousand words!

The Olympics can wait; the survivors can’t!

“Although the time for the best chance of rescue, the first 72 hours after an earthquake, has passed [exactly as planned by CPC], saving lives remains the top priority of our work [believe what I say, not what I do, you ‘ignorant peasants’],” the [doublespeaking] Chinese president, Hu Jintao, told the survivors. (Source)

To the CORRUPT Chinese Government: The World is Watching YOU!

“Parents’ grief turns to anger at shoddily built deathtrap schools”

“Three days after the quake struck, troops and fire engines queued idly along the roadsides waiting for orders.”

“‘I saw a doctor walking along the lines of bloody bodies, checking pulses and looking at wounds. If he shook his head the nurses were instructed not to take the person to the operating theatre but move them to another room to die. It was like a scene from a war film,’ she said.” (Source)
