• A Fascist Regime?

    A Fascist Regime?

    Israel continues its theft of Palestinian land and some now claim that because Palestinians often don't have legal papers describing their land that its just okay for the bulldozers to go in and to wipe out their homes, businesses and out building and to carve off the land to build homes for Israelis.

    But this is not new the Zionist bastards began this type of theft in the 1920's and have been honoured by much of the world for stealing everything and sending 700,000 plus refugees to Gaza in the mid 1940's.  It's truly bizarre that such idiots as Harper and Baird back this cruelty without pause.  Harper has been quoted as saying, "We back Israel no matter what."

    Harper, Baird and other constipated cons conned by the Zionist exclusive club of thieving bastards have reduced Palestinians to pawns to be stepped upon at the pleasure of an Israeli.  It happens on a daily basis and there's a luxury of videos to prove this commitment of Israel to besiege Palestinians in the homes or out as the please.  Harper, Baird and others are just fine with this crap.  Too many are afraid to speak out as they will be labelled anti-Semites and Jew haters.

    Yes, that's all it takes to shut up so many from protesting the vileness of the Israeli fascist right-wing thieves of land; theives of people's ancestral homes and, moreover, thieves of dignity.

    Israel accuses the Palestinians of acts of terror and make big waves about terrorism.  But the Palestinians have only that way to fight the massive invasion of Israelis into the land of Palestine.  The Israelis don't need terror (in the modern description) because its a-okay for Israel to target Palestinians with all the modern equipment of war that are not devices of terror.  Really!  This is a joke.  A very bad one that too many people hang onto.

    So the theft continues by a huge military force backed by our world's biggest military force and tiny bum smellers from tiny nations such as Canada.  That is tiny in power and tiny in brains and tiny in guts.

    So the crap continue with boneheaded asses on Twitter hyping up how glorious and besieged is Israel - a mighty war machine - picking upon the unarmed; the women and children of a country decimated by land theft.

    It doesn't take guts to back the Israelis; one just needs to trump any comment with the Holocaust.  Nothing more need be said.

    Sorry but much, much more needs be said.  The fascism that was the NAZI fascism is now the fascism of Israel.  Netanyahu is the main leader of this fascism as backed up by the West.  The supporters of this fascism are now a political strength trying to create Israel as a Jewish state and to exile all non-Jews.  No this is not fiction.  This movement is taking hold in Israel and its being expanded into the cities and into the lands of the Palestinian peoples.

    Loud-mouthed Israeli women often screech and scream hatefully at the Palestinians from whom they've stolen land; they rip out planted olive trees in orchards of Palestinians; the burn olive orchards, they harass Palestinian children to and fron their schools.  Some students need to be protected by an IDF (Israeli Defence Force) soldier that does very little about the continued harassment.

    My friends this is bullying and that continued is terrorism stage one.  Our press tends to ignore this no matter the available information.  Who owns our press?  Right wing bastards for the most part.

    Yet we hear the continuous whining by Israelis and Israeli backers.  Sad to say I used to back Israel.  Then I got informed.  Poor me.  Feeling a bit of guilt for not knowing.  To much relying upon the right wing false media that floods us all here day after bloody day.

    And Israel is a terrorist state.  Even Noam Chomsky has pointed this out in his book "Fateful Triangle" and the USA used to think this way, too.  But Israel has become an important ally as the USA moves to devastate the Middle East with more and more war - continuous war and continuous threat -- continuous terror through mercenary strikes --- continuous terror via the CIA (wait 30 years for the truth) and psy-ops of the US military.

    Now we've heard about terror strikes toward Israel but why do we not hear the terror strikes by Israel - is Israel not a state committing acts of terror?  Of course it is.  Just look at the very minor press coverage of some of the terror strikes within Iran - the killing of scientists.  Of course that's terror.  Oh but Iran may have supplied arms to other groups!  So...is it only the USA that supplies the nation of Israel allowed this advantage?

    Chomski has also said that; "; performing dirty work that the US is unable to undertake itself due to popular opposition or other costs;"  We can assume the actions against Iran by Israel are, in fact, favours to the USA.

    No it's not just one action of illegality; averse to the concept of Geneva Conventions and International Law.  It is many.  For one, it is now known that Israeli war planes have been equipped to carry chemical and biological weapons and crews flying F-16s retrained to fit chemical and biological weapons within minutes of receiving to order.  Just a sample of the preparedness of the USA/Israel to destroy people.  Tip of the ice-berg.

    At the same time Israel, signatory to the abolishment and destruction of chemical/biological weapons they are quite ready to use them at a moments notice.  The USA calling down Syria for 'being too slow', in a state of a horrid war, to rid itself of these weapons is, itself, years in default of the treaty it has signed and ratified to destroy its chemical weapons that still have huge caches in both Colorado and Tennessee.  But that's just fine, isn't it as laws do not apply to the USA.

  • Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons:

    Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons:

    The USA is adamant about the non-proliferation of weapons as it attacks Iran at every step of their nuclear growth that shows no intent to create nuclear weapons. No such action is used to stop the Israeli nuclear weapons proliferation at all. These weapons are not even talked about in the popular media nor are they mentioned in any non-proliferation discussions. It really seems that Israel is just a little child with extremely poor parenting as it cries out over Iran's potential.

    This fool parent, of course, is the USA abiding a tantrum ranting child and giving this child everything it wants. No suggestion, whatsoever, that Israel open up to any inspections of its nuclear industry and arms creation.

    It does not matter that Israel will not sign the non-proliferation treaty because the treaty does not require, in any manner, the inspections. The inspections of Iran are far removed from the NPT. It follows than that Israel can be forced in the same manner Iran is being forced to allow inspections. Please do not be confused, the NPT does not, itself, insist upon inspections.

    The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has no say with regard to the NPT. It is tasked with a narrow compliance with "Comprehensive Safeguards Agreements" (as should have been assessed at Fukishima). So it is clear that the IAEA has no place in this argument over non-proliferation.

    This simply means that Iran has allowed inspections but is still being assaulted by the USA and friends. And Israel is left to its continued tantrums and continued blocking of any inspections of its nuclear energy and/or its proliferation of nuclear weapons.

    If there are any specific questions about a state's compliance with the NPT the official body to address this question is the International Court of Justice.

    The former head of the IAEA, Dr, Hans Blix stated; "So far, Iran has not violated the NPT,” and "there is no evidence right now that suggests that Iran is producing nuclear weapons.”

    Also, the Nobel Peace Prize winner (a deserving one) and the director of the IEAE for over ten years, Mohamed ElBaradei said that he had not "seen a shred of evidence" of Iran creating a bomb. He followed this up with, "All I see is the hype about the threat posed by Iran”.

    And, yes hype it is and most loudly from the mouth of "Bibi" Netanyahu of Israel and his continued barrage of hate for Iran and lies about Iran.

    Both the USA and its friends along with the criminal acting Israel are stonewalling any relief to sanctions put upon Iran with only the loudly mouthed say-so of the USA and Israel in particular. It is most apparent that we are at war with Iran in much the same way the USA was at war with Japan before the attacks upon the Malay Peninsula and Pearl Harbour.

    A war began by the British and the USA in 1953 with the coup of Iran's democratic government and the horrors that followed. It is wrong of the USA to heavily promote sanctions against Iran when they should be apologising upon their knees for the murderous years of the CIA in Iran leading to the Iranian Revolution of 1979. The hostage taking, big in the news, was really nothing compared to the actions of a criminal CIA between the years of 1953 and 1979. Both the Brits and the Americans owe, big time' for all the oil they stole in this time too.

  • Letter To Mps - Reply

    Honourable Joy Smith November 1, 2013
    Member of Parliament
    Kildonan- St. Paul
    Ottawa, Ontario

    Dear Joy,

    I've been looking over some old correspondence and I noticed a letter from you dated December 8, 2011. This letter was a reply to me about my concerns regarding the intervention of the crises in Libya. I've included a copy of your letter.

    I think we do know now that the intervention which included Canada was wrong.

    I know you believe it to have been UN-mandated but that's not entirely true as Resolution 1973 stating a No Fly Zone to be in place was immediately disregarded and we became a part of the killing of civilians. Up to at least 30,000. We also attacked civilian targets; we helped destroy the immense water system supplying about 50% of Libyans etc.

    I know you believed that the attack by our joint militarises under the 'fiction' of NATO was to help Libya and Libyans. Not true and I believe that not far above you the truth was well known or those above you are interestingly naive as they follow the USA in one more contrived war.

    Forty-two years ago, as you point out, Libya came under the control of a rather strange man; Colonel Ghaddafi. But what you do not know or tend to ignore is the fact that Libya of that time was poverty stricken and very near the bottom of the heap in Africa.

    Colonel Ghaddafi changed all that. Sure you could suggest that it was oil but oil does not insure the wealth nor the privileges of a nation. The Congo has lots of oil but it remains poor; very poor. Nigeria has oil, but it remains very poor and the Niger Delta an oily, dangerous mass and, as the people search for sticks with which to cook their food the oil company burns off huge amounts of Natural Gas considered 'waste'. Now there's a country in dire need of intervention.

    So, Ghaddafi brought the oil money into Libya rather than to have the monies consumed by Big Oil. Now, because of our intervention Big Oil has Libya's oil.

    The following is what Libyans had:
    Libya had risen from one of the poorest country in Africa to one of the richest and Libyans, before NATO/USA's Air War upon Libya had plenty of perks:
    * the greatest irrigation system in our world. the Great Man-Made River project that was said could never be built.
    * there was free health care that the USA could only dream of.
    * there was free electricity
    * there were no interest upon loans
    * a home was a human right in Libya
    * there was free education -- before Ghaddafi 25% literacy - up to 83% now.
    * newly weds given $50 thousand toward their own home.
    * to take up a farming career, they would receive farming land, a farming house, equipments, seeds and livestock to kick-start their farms are all for free.
    * if needed outside Libya in education or medical an allowance of 2,300 (USD value) was given.
    * want a new car - your 1st car was subsidized by 50%
    * cost of gas for your vehicle was 14 cents per litre - for USA values 56 cents a gallon.
    * Libya had no foreign debt (the banksters hated this) and $150 billion in reserve. Frozen - stolen by Obama.
    * A Libyan finished his/her education was paid half of his/her average expected salary until employment was found.
    * a portion of Libyan oil sales was put in the bank accounts of every Libyan.
    * a mother having a baby was given $5,000 (USD).
    * 25% of Libyans earned a university degree.
    * Women were full and equal participants in Libyan society. (This will end drastically as the foreign backed so-called rebels are religious fanatics. A woman's status in Libya will become, minimally, second class and, quite likely, women will become property.

    This I put together 2012-11-18.

    Now, you have made clear that you believe Libya had an oppresive regime and I'll note that there certainly were oppressive parts of this dictatorship. But, though Canada claims to be an alturistic democracy I can certainly not thare many thousands of native people will laugh at that little ignorance.

    It is rare, to the extreme, for anything but dictatorships function in the Middle East and Africa. I'd welcome your list of functioning democracies anywhere in these areas.

    Let's look at the Middle East/North Africa for a moment.

    - Algeria still much less functioning dispite the continued French interests.
    - Tunisia - the beginning of the so-called "Arab Spring". Failing desperately.
    - Libya now completely dysfunctional and rapidly failing. - pretty much ignored by popular media.
    - Egypt - dysfunctional under the USA supported supposed democracy of Mubaric - then functioning a bit better under the leadership of Mursi who was exited by a military coup though he was democratically elected. The West supports the coup. How valiant the protection of the democratic process once they're surprised by the result. Turkey has spoken to this issue in particular.
    - Saudi Arabia - a fierce human rights abuser but, still, a friend with the USA. Continuing demonstrations over the past three years or so but rarely mentioned by our popular press as they're put down ruthlessly. No democracy allowed here.
    - Afghanistan - I knew a girl from here. She really misses Afghanistan 'because it's so much more friendly than here - Canada/Winnipeg. I'd like to start this way because we're assaulted everyday with the 'crimes' in Afghanistan. It wasn't this way.
    In 1979, the Carter Administration, with Zbigniew Brzezinski as the adviser, created al Qaeda. It was a complicated plot that did what it meant to do but al Qaeda was not told of the real reason for their existance as they thought that the impending invasion by the Soviets would end quick and neatly with al Qaeda being instructed by the CIA as to where and when to best attack the Soviets.
    The plot, however, was not that wat inclined at all. The Carter government decided to create reason, in Afghanistan, to entice the invasion by the Soviets. This they did.
    According to Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was apt to brag, meant this war to be the USSR's Vietnam - ie: to break the Soviet economy. It almost did as the cruel war lasted for about a decade. When the war was ended by the Soviet retreat, al Qaeda found out about the plot and the abuse of their lives and the calamity in their minds when they believed they were helping Afghanistan. Also, ten year of war was placed upon a society just for the wishes of the USA. How many lives were ruined by this calculated adventure by Carter - a supposed religious man? The morality here is demented.
    Then, al Queda turned upon the USA - of course - what else would they do?
    The GW Bush decided to get Osama bin Laden for 911. Of that there's never been any proof, ever. On the FBI Most Wanted Posters of Osama his crimes are listed by not ever 911. Nevertheless, GW Bush, one of the biggest liars of our time, invaded Afghanistan to get Osama who escaped under his nose; apparently. He was not there but the invasion continued and Canada is there and wrongly so again.
    Then Obama with a giggling Hillary Clinton watched, remotely, the murders by the Navy Seals in the compound where Osama was dying. Supposedly, only Osama was thrown into the ocean. The others just murdered and left.
    That meant then that the war in Afghanistan should be over. NO!
    Now we're fighting the Taliban (Sunnis) that, just a couple of months before the American/NATO invasion had received a gift of $40 million for their cutting down the opium exports to near zero. Also, Afghanistan, was loosening up from the strictness of the Taliban and women were beginning to drive and 'getting away with it' unlike in Saudi Arabia (Sunni). Also, NGO's were getting many women in Kabul, especially, into their own beginning businesses.
    The invasion of Afghanistan ruined the small forward steps and, once again, Afghanistan is under a long, long war because of the USA and the backing by countries such as Canada. Yes, I blame Cretein as well as Harper. We have no place following the USA into any of their wars.
    So, I'm afraid that the young woman, who had to flee her home and was most kindly allowed into Canada (sarcsm) will likely never, ever return to the home she knew and loved. She is only one of hundreds of thosands never to return because of the USA and Britain and France that continue to create grief under the banner of saviours; a banner of lies. It is the minions such as Canada that follow their masters into wars that should have never been; and shy away from the trues (readily available) about the USA etc. and their criminal actions throughout the Middle East/North Africa.
    Now that the Communism banner is dead the 'reason' is terrorism. I do hope they get the hell out of Central and South America - they aren't but the communism seal of approval is slowly dying as terror becomes the name of the game.

    Terror -- think of the Predator Drones began by Bush and violently escalated by Mr. Peace Prize himself - Obama. Think of the drone of drones - how many I don't know. But their are about 40 drone piloting bases in the USA alone. And in Yemen and in Saudi Arabia. Some remote piloted by the USA military - others by the CIA. They are war crimes and they do murder civilians in numbers.

    Just think of the drones - some flying above the Swat Valley in Pakistan. Perhaps one day one of Malala's friends will die from a drone strike.

    A drone strike - often a home of mud brick is targeted. Supposedly a terrorist is inside hidden. The first drone fires its Hell Fire missile ($1 million plus I believe) and the home is blown up. Anyone outside runs to rescue those inside - grandparents and childrem most likely. As they dig throght the heavy mud brick rubble the second drone fires its Hell Fire missile killing most everyone. This is a double strike - a Double Tap - that is the usual attack.

    Do you really want to understand terror? I'd suggest you go live for a while with a family in the border regions of Pakistan bordering Afghanistan.... or in Yemen, or Somalia, or Algeria, or Afghanistan. One more country I don't recall off hand.

    -Yemen -- another USA friendly nation shooting demonstrators in the streets. Another base for the brutal USA/CIA/Military drone murders. Yemen men, free of any guilt now are a part of Guantanamo Bay Detention Centre (USA). Over a decade - some proven innocent others never charged.
    - Qatar -- I assume you remember the problems Harper faced when Qatar wanted the air tracking system now still in Montreal. Very rich but lately controversial regarding human rights.
    - Bahrain -- harbouring the USA's Fifth Fleet. Had a $600 million expansion of its harbour this past year. A threat to Iran just across the Persion Gulf.
    - Iraq, a violent and horrid country now after the two illegal invasions of Iraq by the USA - GHW Bush first one with a basket of lies especially those by a Kuwaiti girl all across the USA promoting lies that created hatred for Iraqis in the minds of too many Americans. Then GW Bush with his rich gambit of lies which are, in fact, war crimes. I written about Fallugah and the massive war crimes there. Many places in Iraq are infected with U-238 -- Depleted Uranium - arguably known to be dangerous, as a nuclear waste, since the US Navy tests in the early 1980's in Hawaii. Cancers of some types are up 38 times the expected norm. Women in some areas afraid of having children because of the high rate of deformaties caused by ingesting U-238 dust. There is much, much more. But it is interesting to note that Saddam Hussein was recruited in Iraq in 1958 as an asset which continued for decades.
    - Israel - supposedly a democracy but certainly not as they rule over Gaza and, especially the West Bank. A country that continues to steal Palestinian lands and to rule over Palestine completely.
    - Lebanon has been dysfunctional over various periods for a long time. But they're expected to take care of the millions of refugees from Syria.
    - Jordan in trouble with so many refugees that one camp will become a city.
    - Iran - a rather almost democracy much hated by the USA and Israel. Iran was a democracy in 1953 but because of the many abuses of the British and the British not living up to the treaty agreements had gotten all of Iranians angry and they voted for a leader who ran on the platform of nationalization of its oil. So the Brits ran out of time as they ignored the most obvious unrest in Iran. This led to the CIA/MI6 coup of a democratic, functioning government. I know you probably watched Argo. I'd suggest that movie is just a pile of garbage. I talked with a Jewish woman who is really bright and I told her that, having not watched the movie I could tell her how it went and what it did not tell. She gave it some thought and agreed. The hostage taking began, in essence, in 1953 when the USA/UK put in the Shah as a puppet and in 1957 created SAVAK which began years of murders, dissappearances od dissidents by the CIA and its assets. I can go into detail and I can provide some documentation. It was claimed that the CIA had burned all its documentation by 1979. More has been found now this past year or so.

    So why the American anger with Iran? You tell me.

    Right after the close of the hostage taking Saddam Hussein invaded Iran. An illegal war of aggression. Soon Saddam was supported by Ronald Reagan and his Vice-President GHW Bush with hundreds of advisers on he ground and with weapons and with everything needed to create Chemical Weapons. It's widely known tha Iraq had chemical weapons and that he killed, most horribly, over 100,000 Kurds. It is also widely ignored that the chemical weapons, as they were meant to do, killed thousands of Iranian soldiers defending Iran upon Iranian soil. So nice of Bush and all to ignore this as well as Bush being a part of the gift of Chemical Weapons. So nice of our major media to continue to ignore this as they pretend that Iran is the bad country!

    --- and the USA/Israel just about perfect.

    Further, Ahmedinajad never said he wanted to wipe out Israel. That is a purposeful misinterpretation. He said, in Farsi, that he wanted to destroy Zionism -- because he sees Zionism as the problem and not Israel per se.

    Also, Netanyahu, very much wants Iran wiped out and he's been pushing for the USA to bomb Iran for years now. Though the shoe is obviously on the other foot we still get support for Israel and hate for Iran. Iran is a country to not have invaded any other country in over 200 years. Tell the USA to put this in their pipe an smoke it.

    - Syria -- A war caused by outside influences. Another time for this horror story.
    Syria, though, before the curse of war, Syria was a very good place to live. Isn't that interesting! Just like Libya. Again certainly it was a good place. Damascus, a city for 4000 years now almost bombed to the ground. Why?

    Why...is the big guestion of course. The country, as with Libya was a secular country. Not many countries in our world are happily secular. The USA can only gasp at the low crime in either of these ountries pre-destruction. But where did the revolution come from? It came from outside but with the aid of Psy-ops and the CIA (at least) under GW Bush. And it was a programme that continued under Obama and the Saudis were clearly evident in arming the outside mercenaries.

    If we want details, it's still early, However, we have Libya as a referrence. Most of the rebels were from Mali. In northern Mali there is an impoversished Arab population that never gets any help from the so-called democracy in Mali. There is none because of the tribal voting system. The most populous tribe always wins control. The Arabs always lose. The French go in and create this pseudo- democracy, every so often, and proudly say that it's a functioning democracy.

    The Arabs were easily convinced to fight as mercenaries in Libya because they are very poor. They were the force that created the so-called revolution. When they returned, well armed and battle ready, they began the just past internal conflict in Mali just put down by the French military. The troubles expanded well beyond the Arab mercenaries come home but it is told that Mali is returned to a functioning democracy. I'd suggest aknowledging this idea with a grain of salt.

    In your letter of December 8, 2011 you say that "Our Government remains committed to supporting the Libyan people in their determination to rebuild and transition into a peaceful, prosperous and democratic society."

    Do you realize now how shallow those words are in retrospect. How useless is any visit by Baird to Libya and what a total farce this government has been in all things Libyan now following into Syria. You have ruined Libya. You are a part of ruining Syria to a much greater extent. There are now millions of tears because you people chose, along with others, to ignore the realities of these two countries and the good lives that a great majority had.

    It should be criminal to make decisions such as these and I blame all parties in this crime against humanity -- all the people of all parties in our House of Commons and in the Senate that did not opem their mouths to say, "NO!"

    Now, you have made clear that you believe Libya had an oppressive regime and I'll note that there certainly were oppressive parts of this dictatorship. But, though Canada claims to be an altruistic democracy I can certainly not believe many thousands of native people will laugh at that little ignorance.

Then GW Bush with his rich gambit of lies which are, in fact, war crimes. I written about Fallugah and the massive war crimes there. Many places in Iraq are infected with U-238 -- Depleted Uranium - arguably known to be dangerous, as a nuclear waste, since the US Navy tests in the early 1980's in Hawaii. Cancers of some types are up 38 times the expected norm. Women in some areas afraid of having children because of the high rate of deformities caused by ingesting U-238 dust. There is much, much more. But it is interesting to note that Saddam Hussein was recruited in Iraq in 1958 as an asset which continued for decades.
    - Israel - supposedly a democracy but certainly not as they rule over Gaza and, especially the West Bank. A country that continues to steal Palestinian lands and to rule over Palestine completely.
    - Lebanon has been dysfunctional over various periods for a long time. But they're expected to take care of the millions of refugees from Syria.
    - Jordan in trouble with so many refugees that one camp will become a city.
    - Iran - a rather almost democracy much hated by the USA and Israel. Iran was a democracy in 1953 but because of the many abuses of the British and the British not living up to the treaty agreements had gotten all of Iranians angry and they voted for a leader who ran on the platform of nationalization of its oil. So the Brits ran out of time as they ignored the most obvious unrest in Iran. This led to the CIA/MI6 coup of a democratic, functioning government. I know you probably watched Argo. I'd suggest that movie is just a pile of garbage. I talked with a Jewish woman who is really bright and I told her that, having not watched the movie I could tell her how it went and what it did not tell. She gave it some thought and agreed. The hostage taking began, in essence, in 1953 when the USA/UK put in the Shah as a puppet and in 1957 created SAVAK which began years of murders, disappearances of dissidents by the CIA and its assets. I can go into detail and I can provide some documentation. It was claimed that the CIA had burned all its documentation by 1979. More has been found now this past year or so.

    So why the American anger with Iran? You tell me.

    Right after the close of the hostage taking Saddam Hussein invaded Iran. An illegal war of aggression. Soon Saddam was supported by Ronald Reagan and his Vice-President GHW Bush with hundreds of advisers on he ground and with weapons and with everything needed to create Chemical Weapons. It's widely known that Iraq had chemical weapons and that he killed, most horribly, over 100,000 Kurds. It is also widely ignored that the chemical weapons, as they were meant to do, killed thousands of Iranian soldiers defending Iran upon Iranian soil. So nice of Bush and all to ignore this as well as Bush being a part of the gift of Chemical Weapons. So nice of our major media to continue to ignore this as they pretend that Iran is the bad country!

    --- and the USA/Israel just about perfect.

    Further, Ahmedinajad never said he wanted to wipe out Israel. That is a purposeful misinterpretation. He said, in Farsi, that he wanted to destroy Zionism -- because he sees Zionism as the problem and not Israel per se.

    Also, Netanyahu, very much wants Iran wiped out and he's been pushing for the USA to bomb Iran for years now. Though the shoe is obviously on the other foot we still get support for Israel and hate for Iran. Iran is a country to not have invaded any other country in over 200 years. Tell the USA to put this in their pipe an smoke it.

    - Syria -- A war caused by outside influences. Another time for this horror story.
    Syria, though, before the curse of war, Syria was a very good place to live. Isn't that interesting! Just like Libya. Again certainly it was a good place. Damascus, a city for 4000 years now almost bombed to the ground. Why?

    Why...is the big question of course. The country, as with Libya was a secular country. Not many countries in our world are happily secular. The USA can only gasp at the low crime in either of these countries pre-destruction. But where did the revolution come from? It came from outside but with the aid of Psy-ops and the CIA (at least) under GW Bush. And it was a programme that continued under Obama and the Saudis were clearly evident in arming the outside mercenaries.

    If we want details, it's still early, However, we have Libya as a reference. Most of the rebels were from Mali. In northern Mali there is an impoverished Arab population that never gets any help from the so-called democracy in Mali. There is none because of the tribal voting system. The most populous tribe always wins control. The Arabs always lose. The French go in and create this pseudo- democracy, every so often, and proudly say that it's a functioning democracy.

    The Arabs were easily convinced to fight as mercenaries in Libya because they are very poor. They were the force that created the so-called revolution. When they returned, well armed and battle ready, they began the just past internal conflict in Mali just put down by the French military. The troubles expanded well beyond the Arab mercenaries come home but it is told that Mali is returned to a functioning democracy. I'd suggest acknowledging this idea with a grain of salt.

    In your letter of December 8, 2011 you say that "Our Government remains committed to supporting the Libyan people in their determination to rebuild and transition into a peaceful, prosperous and democratic society."

    Do you realize now how shallow those words are in retrospect. How useless is any visit by Baird to Libya and what a total farce this government has been in all things Libyan now following into Syria. You have ruined Libya. You are a part of ruining Syria to a much greater extent. There are now millions of tears because you people chose, along with others, to ignore the realities of these two countries and the good lives that a great majority had.

    It should be criminal to make decisions such as these and I blame all parties in this crime against humanity -- all the people of all parties in our House of Commons and in the Senate that did not open their mouths to say, "NO!"

  • Syria Not Using Gas Weapons

  • Egypt, August 21,2013

    EGYPT:

     

    So Mursi, duly elected remains in jail and with no opportunity to speak as Mubarak, the USA backed dictator now deposed will be leaving jail.

    "Mubarak, 85, was sentenced to life in prison last year for failing to prevent the killing of demonstrators. But a court accepted his appeal earlier this year and ordered a retrial."

    These changes put a whole new light upon the vicious military coup of President Mursi and the Moslem Brotherhood party that won majority in the Egyptian democratic elections.  Whether Mubarak can rule at his ripe age of 85, of course is in doupt.  However, the strategies that have followed, beginning with the coup and arrest and hiding away in prison of President Mursi, lead to a much bigger degree of wrongful interference with democracy then was previously obvious.

    Yes, it has become obvious, at this stage, the the Egyptian military had much more in mind than just the coup against President Mursi.  The purge now is notably tracking down those elected to office under the Moslem Brotherhood banner and they are being tossed in prison by the Military Regime.

    Events now are becoming more and more obvious that this coup was designed by the military and the suspicions, of course, are that outside forces have been evident in the crushing of the Egyptian democracy if favour of the Egyptian military (of which many seem to be rich beyond their means), in favour of Israel and in favour of the United States that crushes governments like flies whether democratic or not.  As long as it suits the USA.

    The USA and the EU are both telling us they are reviewing their aid to Egypt.  I suppose we'll have to guess in which direction depending upon the turn of events in this huge tragedy for Egypt.  Much of the USA is military, of course.  And these military 'aid packages' are really just huge subsidies for the weapons manufacturers in the USA.  A lot of USA aid means subsidizing American products.

    The aid from the USA $1.23 billion in US military assistance and $241 million in economic aid to Egypt.  The military aid will not stop, of course, and arrangements have obviously been made early on with Saudi Arabia to be seen to (at least) provide the aid instead.  Sort of a Three Card Monty here.

    Obama Will Follow the Same Footsteps:
    As GW Bush and Administration Are Being Taken to Court For War Crimes

    August 20, 2013 the court papers were filed as the, incongruous, United States Department of Justice (DOJ) formally requested that GW Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Condeleezza Rice and Paul Wolfowitz be granted immunity in a case alleging that they planned and waged war upon Iraq in violation of International Law.

    The plaintiff is Sundas Shaker Saleh whi is an Iraqi single parent and refugee now living in Jordan. She filed her claim on March 2013 in San Francisco federal court stating that "the planning and staging of the war constituted a “crime of aggression” against Iraq. A war of agression is a war crime.

    The DOJ (I pronounce dodge) contends that the planning and waging of war in Iraq was an action, by the acused and that they were acting within the scope of their employment and thus are immune from suit.  This according to cheif counsel Inder Comar of Comar Law said.

    So, what this means is that the corrupt government of GW Bush can walk away as if they are not guilty of these terrible crimes.  Following this immunity scheme there is the Westfall Act of 1988 that allows the Attorney General to substitute the United States as the defendant and to grant absolute immunity to government employees for actions taken within the scope of their employment.

    In her lawsuit, Saleh alleges that:

    -- Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz began planning the Iraq War in 1998 through their involvement with the “Project for the New American Century,” a Washington DC non-profit that advocated for the military overthrow of Saddam Hussein.

    -- Once they came to power, Saleh alleges that Cheney, Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz convinced other Bush officials to invade Iraq by using 9/11 as an excuse to mislead and scare the American public into supporting a war.

    -- Finally, she claims that the United States failed to obtain United Nations approval prior to the invasion, rendering the invasion illegal and an act of impermissible aggression.

     

    According to COMAR LAW:

    “The good news is that while we were disappointed with the certification, we were prepared for it,” Comar stated. “We do not see how a Westfall Act certification is appropriate given that Ms. Saleh alleges that the conduct at issue began prior to these defendants even entering into office. I think the Nuremberg prosecutors, particularly American Chief Prosecutor Robert Jackson, would be surprised to learn that planning a war of aggression at a private non-profit, misleading a fearful public, and foregoing proper legal authorization somehow constitute lawful employment duties for the American president and his or her cabinet.”

    The case is Saleh v. Bush (N.D. Cal. Mar. 13, 2013, No. C 13 1124 JST).

    Supreme Crime Against Humanity - Robert H Jackson

    Submitted by LanceCiepiela on Wed, 08/21/2013 - 1:12am.

    If certain acts of violation of treaties are crimes, they are crimes whether the United States does them or whether Germany does them and we are not prepared to lay down a rule of criminal conduct against others which we would not be willing to have invoked against us - Source

    The 2003 invasion of Iraq was an unlawful act of aggression and an international crime - the Supreme Crime Against Humanity. It cannot be justified under any reasonable interpretation of international law. It violates the outer limits of laws regulating the use of force - it amounts to mass murder.

    They are War Crimes whether George W Bush did them or Adolph Hitler.

  • NSA/CSIS

    NSA/CSIS

    While Americans rant and rave over the intrusions by the NSA and its anti-Constitutional adventures thieving its way through cyber-space Canada and Canadians have been awfully damned quiet and seem the be ignoring the black fact that there are no limits of what the NSA can do to invade Canadian privacy and to such up volumes of data that may be useful down the road to pick up a Canadian for speaking out against the USA.

    Of course, for many Canadians they just don't give a damn as they're virtual Americans anyway and hold high value for the American violence continuing round our globe as they pretend that this is a Muslim problem when the facts clearly show otherwise.

    But then there are the Canadians that are Free Thinkers and look below the headline stories and are interested in gleaning pieces of truth rather than soaking in a hot tub of preconceived nonsense that flows round us all the time.  It is the Free Thinkers of Canada that are at risk and it seems the Harper government just doesn't like Free Thinkers because they, for the most part, wouldn't vote him team captain of a dodge ball squad even though he's been adept at dodging for quite some time.

    It may come as a surprise to some that Google, Facebook etc have been buddies of the American snoop programmes for some years.  Their systems, it seems, have had wide open doors for those in the snoop business.

    Even as we look at the massive collections of data by the USA we've been ignoring our governments collection of information on and about Canadians.  Gone is the Census and in is the

    Canadian Security Intelligence Act.  CSIS can do exactly as does the NSA under the rules of law created before the Harper conservatives came to power and afterward.

    Very little is being said in our government nor in our news with regard to the NSA collections of Canadian's data nor of the collection of data internally in Canada.

    In the old days of surveillance movies people could be talking in a restaurant and have and eavesdropper with a tiny parabolic disk listening in on your conversations.  Kind of funny really and these movies were not taken that seriously.  Now, the NSA can 'watch' you type on your computer if you're online, it can collect your telephone information; the TV shows you watch; the cell phone activity and so on.

    Billions upon billions of data bits can be copied and stored for later investigation.  This can be done by the Canadian government too but not to such a high degree.  More subtlety, though, Harper may have 'under the table agreements with the USA; certainly CSIS does.

    If you're anti-Harper in any manner, I'd be concerned.  If you've concerns about environmental issues, I'd be concerned.  If you've qualms about Israel, I'd be concerned.  If you back the Palestinians to any degree, I'd be concerned.  Overall, I'd be concerned unless you're an abusive, racist, brutal right wing nut job, I'd be concerned.
