Another Cold Spell

Too cold again for Edmonton.

Minus 35 degrees .

It is so cold here that the horses are unable to move

before they are thawed out

by turning some hair dryers on them.

Where the heck is the promised global warming?

 

Iranian Blow-up

The Western media, including trhe much huffed-up,

Canadian TV, continues to blow up the Iranian 752 affair.

As if these media does not have anything more interesting

to sell than this Iranian fiasco.

The Iranian Leader has already admitted its responsibility

for the 752 plane crash, even promising to convict the perpetrators

and compensate the victims of the crash.

This is already publicized, so what’s more do the TV hosts want?

Rouhani’s head?

A stupid question keeps being asked as to why the air transportation

remained open during that time.

The stupid reply would be : that there is no existing conflict on that zone,

Iran not being at war with anybody.

So it is business as usual.

The airport has always been open.

So what’s the beef?

Another thing is that the Iranians are out in protest

against the futile effort of the presumed “hard” revenge on the Us,

there being nobody killed.

Much more, Rouhani lied about the strike being “terrible’

when in fact it proved to be harmless.

The Iranians protest is a manifestation of their lust for revenge

and not for a change in government

as what the Westerners are salivating to hear again.

Incidentally, I do realize that Rouhani is as good a diplomat

as is a Muslim leader.

I can see that what he is doing now is actually working well

towards his objectives for the Iranian people.

His hidden agenda is well in hand.

I find it funny that the TV hosts, just like I,

would insist on publicizing our hunches

as regards the Souleimani’s assassination.

But funnier it is

that some hunches are childishly concluded

and way, way off.

For instance, the main effort of the investigation should be

the answer to the question as to who really downed the 752,

and not the damnation of Iran.

Remember what I keep saying—

that not everybody lives the same way as the Americans do.

 

 

MH17, Ayayayayay!

Now before I go to MH370

we’ll talk about MH17

which has more damning evidence

simply because  MH370 is still missing

so there.

Also, note that I am now posting on a different computer

for obvious reasons.

I know what I will go through again were I to post on

the same computer at any one time.

They still do not believe that I do not have any source/s

for my material.

Everything is guesswork, er analyses I mean.

You may, however, listen to the spins of the tv hosts

whom I know are just out to make a living.

They may be more plausible

To summarize the events involving Malaysian Airlines MH17,

this Boeing 777 was thought to have been brought down by a Buk missile

launched by the Russian “rebels’ in Ukraine.

the Unkrainians also have Buk missiles, them being once a part

of the Russian Army, and being a province of Russia under Khrushchev.

The western part of Ukraine is Ukrainian.

The Eastern part is Russian.

Poroshenko,

for some good personal and patriotic intentions,

applied for membership to the European Union which was accepted

and was provided with billions of IMF loans and another billions

of CIA provisions.

Putin sought to protect the Russians and sent in soldiers

in “neutral” uniforms and “neutral” weapons.

The skirmishes that ensued resulted on a stalemate (as expected)

because NATO did not profess to enter the fray.

And so comes Brennan’s mercenaries to help protect the Ukrainians

and the 5 billion dollars.

The MH17 was subsequently brought down

 seemingly by a Russian Buk msssile.

Dutch investigators of the MH17 crash declared

that the plane was actually

strafed on that side that killed the pilot.

Reports were that there were two ‘planes” following MH17.

The people on the ground say that they did not see the planes.

The “planes” were maybe too small and too insignificant to see.

Why did they bring down the MH17?

The Secretary General of NATO is a Swede.

MH17 was full of Swedish passengers.

Good logic prevailed.

He did not get NATO to enter the fray!

And the planes?

They were drones in their early stages of development

and did not carry missiles then, only MG’s.

To Save The World

Hitler promised to save his country and the world.

He saved his country

only to have it destroyed

when he attempted to save the world.

Hitler.mp4

A lesson could be learned from his career.

Iranian Diversionary

Now everybody talks about the Iranian vengeful attack

on the US of A.

The type of assault is anybody’s guess.

But Trump has succeeded in diverting the people’s attention

from  his impeachment problem.

And again there is the pre-conditioning of the people

on the subject that the US of A is greater than any other country.

hence the favorable Senate decision on his impeachment case

will not incur much of an amazement from his base.

His diversion of assassinating the top commander

of the Persian military, however, will have consequences

on both Trump and his people,

notwithstanding the humongous budget deficit

that would flare up as a result.

His decision to kill the Persian generals

did not have prior sanction

from the United Nations,

nor by the NATO Heads of state,

nor by the American Congress.

Trump pulled out the sanction from his own ego.

Which makes his electoral base wonder—

when will he lego his ego?

Or that which is detrimental

to world peace.

 

Damage Control With Lies

The killing of the Iranian top commander

was a mistake.

The Americans never knew who they were targeting.

Trump did not give the order.

He just learned of the raid from the reports.

Now the American military starts the damage control

as if they had the guy bracketed ever since.

The result will destabilize the region.

It will now be restricted to Americans.

They should now tread softly around people

with the likes of Arabs and such.

What the Americans call the enemy of the world

will now be united against the enemy that is the Americans.

Boy, what a boyish mistake that was.

The Saudis should now start shaking

under their turbans,

or headdress, whatever they call it.

(I would not worry about the Persians going against Canadians. We had nothing to do with it!)

US Senate : A laughingstock.

I cannot but laugh at the effort

of the very distinguished, famous, honorable,

historical, champion of liberty

called the Senate of the United States

for the attempts to make laws

to be enforced in another sovereign country

which is China.

The conception of America’s Greatness is humurously 

overrated and their silly attempts to spread this idea

is turning from ridiculous to side-splitting.

I know that the Americans have a penchant

for democratizing the whole world

but making laws for the whole world?

This is absurd.

More bats in the belfry?

Singled out as the prominent American

in the “irregular channel” in Ukraine

is Rudy Ghouliani,

of Biden, father and son.

Failing Hongkong Protests

The ongoing ever-violent protests in Hong Kong

are doomed to failure.

It would have received support from the other countries

had the protesters not invaded government offices

and destroyed private properties.

In so doing, they demonstrated thet they will not follow

the democratic principles that they want to be subjected to.

On the other hand, it is the the autonomous government

of Carrie Lam that has shown it upholds democratic principles.

Carrie Lam has allowed the freedom to protest without

stopping it with armed military forces.

The protesters are provoking the police to be violent, though,

but the police have been heroic enough to hold back.

And so does Beijing.

The effort to determine with undercover Chinese as

to who is funding the protests have failed.

Meantime, Beijing is not cutting off the food exports to Hong Kong

because this is also one way to drain the protesters of the funds

that they are sre spending for food.

Meantime, it has taken Regina Ip’s “silent majority”

too long a time before it starts a counter-protest.

Hong Kong’s  financial  success,  and Beijing’s  too,

is not democracy, but an autonomous free port for all nations.

Tourists go there to buy things at affordable prices.

Let us not listen to the young people

who have yet to be concerned about backbreaking work

of earning a living.

Like babies, they cry because they need something.

They do not know what they need exactly.

They only know that they need something.

And they cry only because they NEED something.

Worse, they cry because they WANT something

which is out of reach.

 

The Turkish Safe Zone

It is not only a safe zone as you think it is.

This area of 32X440 km is destined to be the

billeting place of 2 million refugees from Syria

now living Turkey.

But this will be the start of something big for

Turkey, Syria, Kurds, and the rest of the region.

I mentioned that this project will be  a Russian problem.

Well it is, as I will soon point out.

This will also make Putin’s star shine bright,

brighter even than his head.

This is a subdivision problem.

I imagine that a fence will be built that spans

the length of the zone, with a road next to it

from north to south.

This road will be the thing that starts connecting

to the countries within the region.

Russian heavy equipment will construct all of this,

and which will also take part

in the rebuilding of Syria.

The Kurds will stay up north

close to where they were originally

but with settlements to be negotiated with Syria.

It should be noted that with Turkey,

 being the cornerstone of  NATO’s  defense,

its acquisition of  Russian weapons just about

debunks the purpose by which it was organized.

With Turkey out of its sphere of influence,

NATO  would be irrelevant.

Actually, at the present time, it already is irrelevant.

And I would deem the UN as irrelevant, too,

if it does not help with the refugees

relocated to the Turkish Safe Zone.

BTW, when Putin completes the subdivision of the zone,

its name will then be changed to

The Russian Safe Zone.

Yep, yep, yep!

(please do not forget to dig wells)

The Prize

This one is for Turkish President,

RECEP  ERDOGAN,

for not buckling under American pressure

while winning his objectives as regards

his safe zone.

But what is more,

the safe return of Syrian refugees

from  Turkey back to Syria

has been guaranteed.

If the UN is still clamoring to help

then now is the time to do so

after the refugees come back to Syria.

The doctors who chickened out during the fray

may also come back unashamedly.

And the Kurds?

They will still be there

as a buffer for Syria.

Pat on the back to Erdogan.

And to Putin who backed him up

in the sidelines.

 

Erdogan Gives the Finger

When Trump threatened to sanction Turkey

if the attacks on the Kurds are not stopped,

Erdogan just gave him the finger,

summarily debunking the celebrated Art of the Deal.

It is clear that Erdogan has the upper hand on this deal.

What is the deal all about?

I am guessing that Erdogan has the damning evidence

about the Khashoggi cut-up,

and the deal was to withdraw the American troops

or the evidence will be publicized.

Two things : he knows where the pieces were dumped,

or he has an audio recording of the butchery,

that divulges who were responsible for the crime.

This sends Trump in a corner if only to assist the cover-up.

Whatever it is, Erdogan will not halt the attacks until

he gets his safe zone, come Pence or high water.

A short, meaningful strip of land, Russia will give it to him.

That is, unless I miss my guess.

(Or Pence offers F-35’s)

The Kurds

Fierce Kurdish tribesmen held Alexander’s cavalry for a while.

But they have been an irritation to the borders

around Turkey and Iraq, or so it seems.

The Kurds have been the indispensable shield against the Isis.

But why has the Americans abandoned the Kurds

to the Turks who are vowed to obliterate them?

Well it is not exactly an abandonment–

it is a trade-off.

The Americans traded the Turks off

for the Saudis,

or some Saudi that we know.

Sad to say!

(most probably the Kurds will now negotiate with Assad)

Russian Stand-off

 

Lavrov at UN.mp4

Pakistani Lament

IMRA KHAN,

Prime Minister,

goes up the UN stand

to dissect the term “Islamic Terrorism’,

its cause and effects.

This an impromptu speech as riveting

as what an impassioned speech can do.

Khan.mp4

Khan’s lament

actually turned into

a warning to the world.

 

(this is a very educated man!)

The Iranian Stand

Rouhani of Iran

speaks at the Un general assembly

with tactful but stinging words and

factual but stunning allegations,

advocating peace in his region

installed solely by the countries

belongimg to his region.

This speech was an outright denunciation

of the American influence in the Middle East

which had no success in making the area progressive,

but had results contrary to what was expected.

Rouhani.mp4

(BTW—–the American Navy has yet to discover

how the Houthis got awat with the attack unnoticed,

HAH! It was probably a simple Schwarzkopf END RUN!)

 

Humiliated

Aramco of Saudi Arabia

was brought down to its knees

by a missile-drone assault

by the Houthis in Yemen.

A clamor to save face was in order

and theretofore the blame was put on Iran.

Much humiliation would it be that the

heretofore pipsqueak of an army like

what the Yemenis have coukl do such a havoc.

And thereby the united cry of

“Iran did it!” arose.

Accompanying this cry were the Americans,

who themselves were embarrassed that such an attack

escaped their radar watch.

This was a fair attack because Yemen and Saudi arabia

were virtually at war with each other.

Blaming Iran.mp4

Thereafter, efforts by the Americans

to form a coalition against Iran

failed to materialize.

The person most likely to be smiling now

would be Russia’s Foreign Minister

Sergey Lavrov!

The expression “Russia, Russia”

has ceased to be uttered.

Now the words “Iran. Iran”

has come up!

A Free Hongkong?

The protesters cry out for a free Hongkong.

They originally called for a withdrawal of the Extradition Bill.

Now they call for freedom and independence.

They should better be attentive and re-learn Beijing’s laws.

What they are calling for may be tantamount to REBELLION.

And should there be evidence of foreign interference with weapons,

it may be considered as AGGRESSION. 

Just a warning.

The Hongkong policemen have acted with incomparable restraint,

having been trained by the British, and being held back by Beijing.

Using excessive force on the protesters

will just be doing what the protesters hope for.

The Hongkong policemen and the Beijing troops will just hold on

and wait till the funds of the protesters run out,

or the pro-Beijing  people fights back.

Whatever happens, either the zeal of the protesters

or their food supply runs out.

What for the protests?

the Extradition Bill has already been withdrawn!

 

 

Message From China

Canada appoints a new Ambassador to China.

China appoints a new Ambassador to Canada.

Hongkong  withdraws the Extradition Bill.

It is presumed that Beijing ordered this.

China now iterates in more direct words

that Canada should free Meng Wangzhou.

This message from China

have been misunderstood  by Canada

even before Meng Wangzhou was arrested.

This message is now clarified as :

 

“talk to China directly and not thru America

in matters regarding trade, diplomatic relations,

or prisoner swaps. “

 

There should be no intermediaries

on just about anything

between Canada and China.

 

China has now provided a window

for better Canadian-Chinese relationship.

This is the best opportunity for Canada to clear things up.

As of now, China still holds the highest regard for Canada.

 Higher even than any other country in the world.

Hongkong Protests

These have now become disruptive

and the activities are getting out of control.

The protesters simply want the extradition bill withdrawn

(not merely suspended) and while this can be done with

an oral declaration, Carrie Lam refuses to do so.

Or, if I might say, China does not want to withdraw the bill.

China still has sovereignty over Hongkong.

Moreover, the protests are actually what China wants.

These protests dramatizes thegrave disdain that Chinese

have against extradition.

What more effective a message

can China send to Canada

than its refusal to withdraw the extradition bill.

Canada has been hammering out its conformance to the rule of law.

So now China will do likewise.

Only thing is China’s rules of law

is emphatically different from Canada’ rules of law.

Or doesn’t everybody know these?

In a nutshell,

Would China drop its extradition bill

if Canada drops its extradition of Meng?

Presently,here is no end in sight for these protests.

 

 

UK Tanker on Hit-And-Run

(You will please ignore this post if you must. Frankly I di not have the way to verify the past events. Just treat the story as a fairy tale.)

A few days ago, the UK sent another warshipto the Strait to watch over the British tankers hauling oil. Then comes a drone supposedly Iranian and downed by the Americans.

Now comes a British tanker speeding off after allegedly hitting a fishing boat. One Iranian patrol boat hails it and requests the British captain do an about face and turn back for security inspection. The British captain refused to do so claiming his ship is on international waters and may not be stopped for anything. Now what would the Iranians hope to discover after they boarded the ship?

I will guess—No receipt for the oil purchase can be shown; or the captain has no license to qualify him and the ship to ferry oil from Iran; the cargo is not oil; or the ship must be hauling the downed drone which is a British property.

Whatever the Iranians will find, the British captain must stop even if his ship is in international waters if he commits a misdemeanor such as hit-and-run or non-payment of cargo, or if he and his ship presents a security risk to just about anybody.

The Iranians say the stopping is not a challenge to the British tanker’s rights. This is emphasized by the Iranian patrol boat by not firing a warning shot across the bow.

 

 

Hit-And-Run.mpg

 

When will the British realize that the Galleon Trade is over eons ago and that profit by sea is not acceptable anymore.

But why was the British tanker in a hurry to get away?

Iranian Drone Downed

If my intuition still serves me right

the drone is not Iranian,

It was most probably an American drone

controlled by an American

and downed by an American  cruiser,

Another guess is that it was

a UK drone.

The  provocations to initiate conflict 

and prove that it rules the world

are bordering on the ridiculous,

turning the United States from a sanction bully

to the fake news  pest,

so much so that the rest of the world

have  started the search for both

Trump vaccines and Trump pesticides.

Let us therefore have a look-see

at what the downed drone looks like.

(it must be a drone.

they wouldn’t use a Gatling gun to down a kite!

or would they?)
