FBI Director Sacked!

YUP! Comey never knew what got him!

He only knew he lost his job

when he watched his tv set.

And again, Trump’s people blame him

before they find out why.

The reason can only be

that Comey did not do what he said he will do.

Comey must be gathering more info than is required of his project.

Information, the Americans will find out later, IS POWER.

Remember J. Edgar Hoover?

He held some Presidents under his will

because he owned some particular info about them.

The Americans should also remember that the FBI

has failed in some important events that the country had to suffer.

One of these is September 11.

The Americans should blame Trump on the results of his actions

and not on his decisions.

And maybe, they should once in a while give him some

applause for that which he did well.

As for international criticisms,

the Americans should not worry.

Trump has given the world the impression

that he can accomplish things without the tedious procedures

of asking permissions to act.

Forget about the weirdness in Trump.

GIVE TRUMP THE ELBOW ROOM THAT HE NEEDS!!!!

Clinton’s Emails

GAD!

If there is one thing that will give Russia

a respite from the media bash

is the discovery of the rest of Hillary`s emails

which may have been forwarded

or sent as copies to another device.

GAD!

I think Putin

has something to do with this!

The Children of Aleppo

The obsession of the Western countries

to bring down the legitimate government of Syria

has now started to claim the children of Aleppo as casualties.

aleppo051

RT Oct 16 2016.mp4

More so the western countries turn a blind eye on the

rebel shelling of Aleppo.

This is the way that the rebels prove to those who  supplied their arms

that they are actually using these arms for the intended purpose.

But bombing the children of Aleppo is one juicy pointer

for the Human Rights Commission to step in

and stop the shelling.

But no, the HRC just do not follow the rules.

They just follow what they are told to follow.

After all, they must also receive wages to survive.

At any rate, the Western world has never justified

their reasons to change the regime of Assad

and to malign Russia as a state and a nation.

The Western World should realize by now

that Assad will not be toppled

and Russia will finally be understood.

Bomb On Plane?

The first suspicion that the authorities make on the 804 crash

is a bomb on the plane.

If it was a bomb, then  my suggestions for security

would be similar to my suggestions on the 370 crash.

Rotate the baggage handlers.

Assign seats at the last moment.

Shield the computer from wi-fi signals.

But then again, consider this:

A pigment of my imagination it might be

so therefore do not believe me when I say this.

Just consider this;

some particular controller of a drone from somewhere

is unwittingly controlling two birds in flight—

one is a military-style drone,

and the other, this flight 804.

What gave him away is a 360 degree turn,

and a drop in altitude.

Only drones doing a surveillance will do this.

Never passenger planes.

MH370, The Search

And so the search for the Malaysian plane continues.

What do the Australians say now?

Are they still following dolphins?

What other theories are cropping up now?

Does the plane carry people fleeing towards Australia?

Was the plane brought down because

it was mistaken to be a security threat?

Was the plane under some remote control?

Was the plane brought down to distract public attention

from what was going to happen somewhere else?

Courtney Love has another theory

and she has this picture of the waters

in the Indian Ocean.

No sign of dead bodies floating, though

What say you, we get Mad Max to check this out?

Greece Votes No to Austerity

Rather, Greece is headed for a NO vote in the referendum.

The implications of this vote for Greece should bear

less significance than to the reasons

that led to such a referendum.

Anyway, there will be lots of financial analysts that will

be active in transcribing the significance of

the referendum votes.

Wait a while until they finish doing this.

They should, of course, not restrict their analyses to

merely the financial side of it.

They should attempt to answer the question,

“what happened?”

To Fight The ISIS

It must have been observed that the Sunni faction of Islam,

or more specifically the remnants of Saddam’s General staff,

have kept the Western forces off-balance

mainly by nit-picking their targets.

Such strategy leads the western forces away from the

exploitation of captured cities.

Right now, Ramadi has been captured,

and when the western forces rush troops to Ramadi,

ISIS exploits unopposed the last city they captured.

One strategy which may undo the Sunni tactics

is a massed onslaught from the rear.

Yep! You may be looking at massed assaults by Russian forces!

The Khyber Pass could accommodate such an intrusion.

The ISIS leadership just might be quartered at the rear of their troops.

Your question would be what would

the Russians hope to gain from this invasion?

ISIS have not attacked any Russian territory,

Iran being a buffer against such attacks.

And then again, why choose Russia to do the attack?

Because NATO is disunited, unreliable as a unit,

and lacks support from the EU.

Also, NATO’s guns are pointing the wrong direction.

Now, what would the West give to Russia

in exchange for such a military operation?

(Remember that ISIS is still not familiar with Russian weaponry)

Greece

Greece,

the country that gave the world democracy,

and the phalanx, and the cavalry,

art, and discipline,

now flounders from financial burden.

Oddly enough this country still ignores

the industry that kept her out in front

of the mercantile world.

It still fails to recognize the value of

shipping, or transportation via the seas.

It should re-develop its shipbuilding industry

and perhaps may again have millionaires like Onassis.

Why don’t the Greeks build oil tankers

to rent to other countries.

Or perhaps, they should attempt to negotiate

something with the BRICS.

The Saladin Syndrome I

The Saladin Syndrome

(Reposted from September 28, 2012 this website.)

 

There is presently a disagreement within the Obama Cabinet about which group was responsible for the death of the US Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens. Since this is election time, the Republicans are quick to pounce upon this disagreement . The Administration, they say,  is keeping a secret of this disagreement, adding that the government is bewildered about the events in the Arab region.   The Republicans  are right at this juncture because no further  U.S. investigation could have been  made. To confound the situation, there exist a number of groups that could easily have been responsible for the deed. There is the Al-Qaeda, the  foreign  fighters, the  foreign mercenaries, the  soldiers of fortune, and also the plain ragtag leftover Libyan rebels carrying leftover weapons.

The Al Qaeda, its capable leaders pruned by drones, has been weakened  in both strategy and weaponry, to a point that such a sustained attack on the American Embassy would have been inhibited. While the possibility of the Al Qaeda members slipping through the Libyan security exists  the attack would have required some  support to succeed. Such support could have been provided spontaneously by the mob that was sparked by the notorious video clip of Muhammad. Or some other military-trained group, posing as Al Qaeda, may have led the assault.

It should be noted that the Libyan citizens attacked some safe houses of Al Qaeda. This could only mean that the Al Qaeda’s operations are not entirely secret in Libya. But there are the other groups, the foreign mercenaries to name one, which operate in Libya. Some particular NATO countries may have interests in the results of this Arab upheaval. These countries may have sent their special forces, or soldiers of fortune, to operate in the region. Each of these countries may have varied concerns regarding the events now happening. As a result, they don’t work in unison. Their attacks are not synchronized.

It was published by the media that the diary of Chris Stevens was found in a conspicuous location inside the embassy ruins.  It reads that Stevens may be in the Al Qaeda hit list. The circumstances leading to this Al Qaeda info in the diary is suspect. This diary obviously have been read and returned to be found by the media. If the Al Qaeda returned the diary, it would be for the intention of publicizing their dastardly deed. If some other group other than the Al Qaeda read and  returned this diary, it could have been intended  to lay blame on Al Qaeda. This diary throws more confusion to the situation. Who dunnit? The answer or answers could only be opinionated.

And then there is the group of Libyan rebels that ousted Ghadaffi, who are presently languishing about the lack of recognition by the new Libyan government  and; with surplus arms and ammunition, they have  become trigger-happy trouble makers under  the lust to fire their weapons. Such an excuse as a protest against a video clip, or a looming attack on the American Embassy, is enough to galvanize them to do some damage with rifle and bombs.

These varied groups collectively make up what the Obama Administration (and Assad) calls as “terrorists”, for lack of a term to define them. They are splintered, but they wreak havoc just the same. There is not one person nor one group amongst  them that they can call leader. They are not in agreement with each other. One group may say something, yet another group may do another thing which is different. It is therefore not a wonder that any effort to mediate peace in the region will not fall through. There is nobody to negotiate with.

Which just about brings us to what I am trying to say —that this lack of leadership amongst the Middle East Arab countries is what makes the region what it is today.  The region does not have an Islamic leader to call the shots, and to call for the shooting to start, and stop. They need another Saladin.

Such a position for a supreme leader is what Ghadaffi  tried to fill. So did Hussein ,Bin Laden,  Khomenei,  and the other Heads of Arab States. None of them proved strong enough to lead. Moreover, the West almost always interfered with the rise of any strongman. It  would be astronomically costly and destructive for the West to start another crusade.  From thence come the Arab hatred for the West. The West has prevented the rise of any prospective Saladin, and consequently, prevented the formation of a unified Arab States.

Curiously enough, if there were a Saladin, he would have kept order in the region, and there would only be one person to negotiate with. Sad it is to say that the West have a penchant for bringing down people who  would have kept order in the Arab states.

The Arabs have oil, but they don’t have food. Soil that is good for pumping out oil is not good for planting grain. Oil can be traded for weapons and food, but the source of food may be drying up.   The prices are going up as the scarcity of the food supply deepens. While the Arabs have guns, they need food, reminiscent of North Korea’s demise, isn’t it?

Clinton asks, ”Where do they get their guns?” I would ask, “Where do they get their food?” The army fights on its stomach, so says Napoleon. These “terrorists” may therefore drop their guns for a loaf of bread. Presently, they still have loaves of bread. Where do they get the bread?

This should  give us the splendid idea that if Europe were able to sell food  to the Arabs, they would have solved their ensuing economic problem.  Europe should stop sending weapons and mercenaries to the Arabs.  Better to trade food for oil.

This is what I think about the Arab situation, even if I ain’t there to witness things.

I must admit I do miss the mark at times.

Then again I must also say that when I miss, I don’t miss by  much.

What If?

What if Iran already has a nuclear bomb?

Don’t you think the US would fight tooth and nail to have inspectors in

the country even if this entry would cost the removal of sanctions?

What if the co-pilot of Germanwings was promised

a large sum of money to crash the plane,

do you believe that he would?

Andreas Lubitz did say he liked flying the budget-type of planes

didn’t he?

Ah, but what he did is similar to a child’s

act of locking himself in his room

when he’s angry with his parents.

Guessing, I’m just guessing.

From this very livid dissertation by King Abdullah

it could be concluded that the extremists, terrorists, or jihadists’

claim that they are fighting for Islam is false.

And that the the IS name is a misnomer.

It may well have been OS

or  OUTLAW STATE.

(precisely my sentiments)

Kiev Switches Tactics

With its failure to make a dent on the east Ukrainian rebels’ defense,

Kiev’s Ukrainian military switches tactics.

With the exhausting of the ‘defensive’ armaments supplied by the US

and its coffers drained of money,

Kiev changes the assault to internet propaganda.

Although there is no propaganda coming from Russia,

Kiev now gears for countering false information

from Russia and its ‘trolls”.

Kiev forces do not really warrant “defensive” weapons

because it is really the one doing the attacking.

Of course I would now be considered a Russian troll should I ask

would the Eastern Ukrainians really bomb to rabble

their own city of Donetsk?

Would Russia really bother to attack

non-productive, poverty-stricken Eastern Ulraine?

What for? This  crisis is Brennan’s folly.

$5 billion spent for Ukraine

have already gone down the drain,

why inflict on the EU more pain

when it is presently groaning

from its own growing pains.

Minsk Ceasefire Holding

 From the way that the opponents of the accord

(that the Minsk Club of Four have signed)

have redoubled their efforts to bring it down,

the prospects of the ceseafire looks good.

There is also this skirmishes for choice

 spots where the demarcation line will be initially posted.

Perhaps  the  US  and NATO  should allow  the ceasefire  to succeed.

After all, Ukraine is still a quagmire of expenses

that promises to gulp more of American and European

taxpayers’ money.

If there be any country that can help Ukraine,

it will be, and always have been,

Russia.

Therefore, let Russia foot the bill.

Of course, Ukraine will again be under Russia’s sphere of influence.

And then again, who cares as long as the result stabilizes the region.

ceasefire

A glimpse of hope has appeared for peace in Ukraine after a 13-point memorandum was signed Thursday in Minsk.

The deal was brokered by the leaders of France, Germany and Russia, who joined their Ukrainian counterpart on Wednesday for marathon overnight negotiations.

The deal was signed by the so-called “contact group,” which includes the leaders of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, a representative of the OSCE, Ukraine’s former President Viktor Kuchma and the Russian ambassador to Ukraine.

Here is the breakdown of the deal:

 

  1. A comprehensive ceasefire in eastern Ukraine. Comes into force at 00.00 (Kiev time) on February 15.

 

  1. A pullout of heavy weapons. The parties agreed to a compromise disengagement line. Kiev is to pull artillery and other hardware from the current frontline while the rebels would do it from the frontline as it was in September, before they gained ground in a January counter-offensive. The OSCE-monitored safety zone would be 50 km to 150 km wide for weapons, depending on their range. The pullout is to be completed by March 1.

 

  1. The OSCE will use its drone fleet and monitors on the ground, as well as satellite images and radar data to ensure that both parties stick to the deal.

 

  1. Kiev and the rebels will negotiate the terms for future local elections in the rebel-held areas, which would bring them back into Ukraine’s legal framework. Kiev would adopt legislation on self-governance that would be acceptable for the self-proclaimed republics.

 

  1. Kiev will declare a general amnesty for the rebels.

 

  1. An exchange of all prisoners must be completed by the fifth day after full disengagement. That’s in 19 days, if the weapons pullback takes the full time provided for by the deal.

 

  1. Humanitarian aid convoys will be allowed full access to the needy in the war-affected areas. An international monitoring mechanism will be provided.

 

  1. Kiev will restore economic ties, social payments and banking services in the dissenting areas, which it cut earlier in response to the elections held by the self-proclaimed republics. Their respective governments will resume taxation and payment for utilities. This provision is subject for further negotiation.

 

  1. After the local elections are held in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions, Kiev is to restore control over their borders with Russia. The transition may take time, which would be needed for a comprehensive constitutional reform in Ukraine.

  1. All foreign troops, heavy weapons and mercenaries are to be withdrawn from Ukraine. Illegal armed groups would be disarmed, but local authorities in Donetsk and Lugansk would be allowed to have legal militia units.

  1. Keiv will implement comprehensive constitutional reform by the end of the year, which would decentralize the Ukrainian political system and give privileges to Donetsk and Lugansk. The privileges include language self-determination, the freedom to appoint prosecutors and judges, and to establish economic ties with Russia.

  1. The OSCE’s election monitors are to see that local elections in the self-proclaimed republics are up to international standards. The exact procedure for the elections is subject to further negotiations.

  1. Talks between the “contact group” will be intensified in various ways.

The Hanging of Hussein

hussein1

For whatever charge that still is to be provided

Saddam Hussein of Iraq was executed.

For whatever purpose he was hanged is still to be told.

The consequence of this hanging is now known

It encouraged the formation of what is now called ISIS, or ISIL, or IS.

I keep saying that he did not have anything to do

with the September 11 destruction,

nor of any Weapons of Mass destruction,

nor the harboring of Al Qaeda.

That rope will now sell for 7 million dollars.

Would that price be good enough a reason to hang him?

ACHTUNG!

Germany’s BND foreign intelligence agency says a local militia shot down Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in eastern Ukraine in July, Der Spiegel reports. The BND is said to possess “ample evidence,” though none of it has been made public.

The statement was made on October 8, when Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) president Gerhard Schindler was holding a secret meeting with members of the parliamentary control committee, the German daily reported on Sunday. He claimed the militia fired a rocket from a BUK defense missile system which it had captured from a Ukrainian base. It then exploded next to the plane, according to the report. “Schindler provided ample evidence to back up his case, including satellite images and diverse photo evidence,” the report added. However, no “evidence” has yet been made public, and the BND has not made any official statements on the matter.

At the same meeting, Schindler reportedly said that certain intelligence on the crash provided by the Ukrainian side was false, adding that “this can be explained in detail.” However, he did not give much credit to Russia’s evidence either. The German Federal Prosecutor’s Office told the newspaper that an investigation has been launched into unknown perpetrators under the possibility that the downing had been a war crime.

First deputy prime minister of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Andrey Purgin, refuted claims made by the German intelligence agency. He told Interfax that Kiev forces could have downed the plane, mistaking it for a spy jet. Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was heading from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it was downed over eastern Ukraine on July 17, killing all 298 passengers and crew. Nearly two-thirds of the passengers were from the Netherlands. The ongoing international probe led by the Dutch has not yet established who the perpetrators were. A preliminary report issued in September said only that the plane crashed as a result of structural damage caused by a “large number of high-energy objects” that struck from outside.

Political analyst Aleksandar Pavic told RT that he believes Berlin is trying to influence the Dutch investigation – the results of which are to be released next year.

“Germany has now the obligation to show the evidence to the official investigation,” he said. “This is like during trial: if you release bits and pieces of evidence before while the trial is still ongoing, you are trying to influence the outcome of the trial.” Russia has been repeatedly denied accusations, mostly from the US, which claim that Moscow was connected to the tragedy in some way or another. The Russian Foreign Ministry has called Washington’s accusations “unsubstantiated innuendos.” The US State Department has accused Russia of firing artillery across the border into Ukrainian territory after the plane crash. “We have new evidence that the Russians intend to deliver heavier and more powerful rocket launchers to the separatist forces in Ukraine, and have evidence that Russia is firing artillery from within Russia to attack Ukrainian military positions,” State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters during a briefing in July. But she refused to provide any evidence when grilled by an Associated Press reporter. Meanwhile, Moscow has posed a series of questions to the US that have been left unanswered. Russian military officials urged their US colleagues to release satellite images that prove their claims.

“If our US colleagues have imagery from this satellite, they should release it for the international community to examine it in detail. This may be a coincidence, but the US satellite flew over Ukraine at exactly the same time when the Malaysian airliner crashed,” a ministry spokesman said in a July statement.

The US has accused local militia forces of shooting down the plane. However, it has provided little to no evidence in support of such claims. Following the crash, Harf was asked at a press briefing if the US could back up its claims regarding the role of such militias in the tragedy. Harf responded that she “can’t get into the sources and methods behind it” and “can’t tell you what the information is based on.”

In late July, the US State Department released satellite images via email, claiming the pictures acted as “evidence” that Russia was firing rockets at Ukrainian troops across the border. The images were posted on Twitter by the US ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt. Russia’s Defense Ministry said the authenticity of the images was impossible to prove. Meanwhile, Russia has said that its military detected a Ukrainian SU-25 fighter jet gaining height towards the MH17 Boeing on the day of the catastrophe. No explanation was given by Kiev as to why the military plane was flying so close to a passenger aircraft.

 

(And so is initiated further debates from all sides as to who really downed the MH17. The question is ; will the German intelligence try to prove its findings? Or this is just journalistic sensationalism?)

Kobani Kurds Resist Isis

Kobani might fall to ISIS, but the Kurds resist valiantly.

The Turkish Military might get in afterwards and capture Kobani if it falls.

Naturally, the Turks will keep Kobani for themselves if they recapture it.
