Dahlia Wasfi: America Under Israeli Occupation

Dahlia Wasfi explains in very clear, easy to understand terms, who controls the US’s Middle East policy, how, and for what reason. Of course, the depth of corruption and control are much deeper, but understanding these basic issues should be enough to anger and invigorate those just coming to the realization that they lie to us brazenly and without end.

Ariel Sharon: “We, the Jewish People, Control America, and The Americans Know it“!

Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA)dvisory board includes such notable figures as Michael Ledeen, Richard Perle, and R. James Woolsey, while Vice President Dick Cheney, former U.S. Representative to the United Nations John Bolton, and former Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith were all on JINSA’s Board of Advisors before they entered the Bush administration

Jason Vest, writing in The Nation,alleges that JINSA, along with Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy, are “underwritten by far-right American Zionists” and both believe strongly that “‘regime change’ by any means necessary in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian Authority is an urgent imperative.”

How is it acceptable to any American citizen that high level members of Israel’s Likud party (under Netty Yahoo) are allowed to come here  (dual citizens, all) and become high level members of the Bush Administration… carrying out the very same plan of Middle Eastern takeover they drafter in Israel? Is it ok with America that we have been taken of our loved one’s lives, our reputation, and ALL THE MONEY???

What Nutty Yahoo Really Meant and What He Should Have Said


That was what the nutbag really meant, but Greg Bacon at Goon Squad shows us what the maniac SHOULD have said:

“Today, my fellow members, I come to you with a heavy heart and broken soul, to ask for your forgiveness.

Since Israel was illegally created by a bribed and intimidated UN back in 1947, the Khazars and Commie Russian thugs that have moved into Palestine and stolen large chunks of the indigenous Palestinians land thru force; deception, thuggery and outright murder, all in an insane dream called Eretz Israel.

To that end of making an Israel that would stretch from the River Nile to the River Euphrates, Israel and it’s fellow Zionist travelers, along with sold-out politicians in the USA, Britain, France and Germany have been sowing misery, death and destroying around the world, then getting our Zionist owned MSM to blame our bloody acts on Muslims, vilifying Islam.

From our craven, sneaky unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty in our 1967 War of Aggression, to the FALSE FLAG/INSIDE JOB of 9/11, it was Israel behind those acts of treachery, that we then blamed on Islamic nations, like Iraq, so we could have our pit bull, the USA, go into those nations we castigated and have them destroyed,all to benefit Israel and Israel alone.

We stand guilty of a multitude of crimes, like wrecking the world’s economy after our 9/11 attacks against the USA. We had our Zionist friends at the Federal Reserve and those ‘Too Big to Fail’ Wall Street banks loot, pillage and plunder trillions of dollars from the world’s economy, because we knew that most Americans would be too damn scared of our fiction, al Qaeda, to notice that slippery set of fingers stealing their life savings.

We also stand guilty of numerous crimes against humanity, especially against the Palestinians in Gaza, were we have been operating the world’s largest concentration camp.

Another of our convenient scams is making people think 6 million Jews were killed by Germany during WWII, when anyone who investigates this matter can easily see it was the world’s biggest scam, designed to engender sympathy and money, lots and lots of money, to help Israel have a non-stop supply of wealth from other nations.

The list of our crimes against the world would fill a book, so I will conclude my ‘Mea Culpa’ by asking the world’s forgiveness and vow to NEVER AGAIN let this happen and to ensure we don’t remain the #1 threat to world peace, I am ordering that all our nuclear weapons be neutralized and that the enriched uranium and plutonium be delivered to Russia and the USA.

I am also ordering the dismantling of AIPAC, so that organization will stop running the USA and buying politicians.

I also ask that the International Criminal Court begin and immediate of our crimes, and to lock me and my cabinet members away, awaiting trial.

Thank you”

Maybe Not So Far Fetched

 

Gallup Poll: Rural Whites Prefer Ahmadinejad To Obama

h/t The Onion

CHARLESTON, WV—According to the results of a Gallup poll released Monday, the overwhelming majority of rural white Americans said they would rather vote for Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than U.S. president Barack Obama. “I like him better,” said West Virginia resident Dale Swiderski, who, along with 77 percent of rural Caucasian voters, confirmed he would much rather go to a baseball game or have a beer with Ahmadinejad, a man who has repeatedly denied the Holocaust and has had numerous political prisoners executed, than spend time with Obama. “He takes national defense seriously, and he’d never let some gay protesters tell him how to run his country like Obama does.” According to the same Gallup poll, 60 percent of rural whites said they at least respected that Ahmadinejad doesn’t try to hide the fact that he’s Muslim.

B’Man’s Hypocrite Watch: Iran versus Israel and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty


Know the hypocrisy regarding Iran’s agreement/participation in the nuclear non-proliferation treaty and Israel’s downright denials.

Who is the problem here? Iran or Israel?

If you still support the criminal regime in Israel and believe the lies told you regarding Iran, you are part of the problem. The very basic fact contained in this video should be all you need to know regarding who the real problem is in this world (and it sure as hell isn’t Iran). If Israel was genuine, they would sign the same non-proliferation treaty that Iran signed. But not only will they NOT sign it, they stole the technology from us and thumb their noses at anyone who calls them out for their obfuscation and obvious lies.

It Would Be An Honor To Serve My Country, Return With PTSD, Sit On A Mental Health Care Waitlist, Then Kill Myself

 

It Would Be An Honor To Serve My Country, Return With PTSD, Sit On A Mental Health Care Waitlist, Then Kill Myself

By U.S. Army Pfc. Edwin Quinones
August 15, 2012 | ISSUE 48•33

Ever since I was a kid I dreamed of joining the Army. So as soon as I could, I went down to my local recruiter and enlisted, knowing full well that I’d probably be sent to Afghanistan. Now, with my first deployment less than a week away, there’s only one thing on my mind: how incredibly proud I’ll be to fight for my country, experience crippling psychological trauma, wait indefinitely for the proper health care, and then eventually become so depressed and mentally ill that I commit suicide.

It’s what I’ve always known I was born to do.

It’s a matter of principle, really. From a young age I was taught that throughout our history, Americans have had to stand up and fight for the freedoms we enjoy. I always knew that when the time came, I would serve with honor and nobly suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder until my only recourse was to end my own life. So it’s with eager anticipation that I head off to the battlefield to defend, be ignored by, and then—left all alone, with my personal demons closing in—kill myself for the land I love so dearly.

Honestly, it would be my distinct pleasure and privilege to not get the medical help I need for injuries suffered while risking my life for my country.

That’s why we take the oath, isn’t it? To do our jobs with humility and valor, and to come home haunted by visions of our commanding officer, who promised he’d bring everyone back alive, being blown to bits by a cleverly disguised roadside bomb? In my mind it doesn’t matter what unspeakable horrors I witness, I’ll just be grateful for the privilege of having to wait at least six months to see a VA psychologist and in the interim turn toward alcoholism and drug addiction until I decide the only path to relief is putting a bullet in my head.

I know no greater honor than relying on an agency with a backlog of more than half a million claims that can’t get its shit together enough to transfer its paper files to a central computer.

HOO-ah!

I’m reminded of all the patriotic men and women who came before me. Those who had the chance to accidentally breathe Agent Orange in Vietnam and never get a proper diagnosis, only to become estranged from society, spiral downward into homelessness, and eventually freeze to death in an alley alone. And let’s not forget the thousands who nobly returned from Desert Storm with a mysterious illness the Army never fully admitted or identified the cause of, a syndrome resulting in chronic pain that prevented so many from ever being able to hold down a steady job.

Knowing about the care they deserved but didn’t receive fills me with great pride for my country. And it would be a true honor—this soldier’s duty, really—to follow in their footsteps.

But let’s remember that behind every soldier are the loved ones whose sacrifices are no less important. You’d better believe I’m looking forward to coming back from war and having to drink a fifth of Jack Daniel’s every night just to fall asleep, and even then having nightmares so powerful my wife has to shake me awake. Lying in bed racked with anxiety, she’ll no doubt see her husband as a hero whose untreated illness puts her at constant risk of being physically harmed.

And to see the look on my child’s face as he watches his own father, fresh off the battlefield, crying in a fetal position in the corner of his living room because he can’t get the help he needs, even though he’s been calling doctors for three straight months—tell me, is there any feeling greater than that? I don’t think there is.

So when I finally can’t take it any longer and decide to check into a hotel to end my own life, please know that I have but one simple request: My agonizing struggle and tragically preventable death should be the last thing on anyone’s mind. Because the only thing that’s important for someone like me, who will be dedicating his life to serving his country, is that my government lets me waste away until I become a shell of my former self.

That’s what being an American soldier is all about.

The Other Side of the Sanctions

 

The Other Side of the Sanctions

 

 

Iran has been pushed into a corner and is fighting for its life. The safest weapon in its arsenal is an economic strategy; and it is the one point where the United States is vulnerable.

There is no doubt about it. Section 1245 of the National Defense Authorization Act that was signed into law by President Obama on December 31, 2011 is having the intended effect upon Iran.

Unlike previous sanctions, Section 1245 attacks the foundation of the Iranian economy. The provisions of the law seek to stop the sale of crude oil and to block transactions between the Iranian central bank and the rest of the world. About fifty percent of the national budget is funded from the sale of exported crude oil that provides eighty percent of the foreign exchange.  “Crude (oil) sales are a trap which we inherited from the years before the (1979 Islamic) Revolution,” Khamenei told a gathering of researchers and scientists at the end of July.

An immediate consequence of the legislation has been the plunge in the exchange rate of the Iranian Rial that has lost half its value against the U.S. dollar. A combination of devalued currency and a break down in international bank transfers has created shortages of imported products, including basic food grains. The result is seen in an official inflation rate of 25 percent and an unemployment rate of 12.3 percent.

Before the implementation of the sanctions, Iranian oil exports were the second largest in OPEC at 2.2 million barrels per day.  Today, the current level is around 1.1 million barrels, but that does not take into account the oil leakage through the sanction barriers. A friendly government in Baghdad makes Iraq one of the easier routes to the world market. Shipments of gold bullion through Turkey to Iran indicate that the Iranians are selling to someone.

After nearly thirty years of dealing with American sanctions, the Iranians have developed methods of evading some of the restrictions, but the current application goes far beyond anything faced earlier. The National Iranian Oil Company has been forced to relinquish its monopoly of sales and authorized private traders to market the crude. The Oil Products Exporters Union expects to manage a fifth of exports and claims to have completed arrangements with refiners in Europe.

In spite of the evasive measures that are being employed, The Iranian treasury is still losing about thirty billion dollars per annum, a decline from seventy-two billion in 2011. Beyond that, reduced exports are causing a problem of what to do with the surplus.  On shore facilities have been filled. Seven million barrels are being held at Sidi Kerir in Egypt.

That leaves the tankers as the only other storage choice. Half the Iran tanker fleet of forty-seven ships is already sitting at anchor with tanks full and no place to go.

The less attractive possibility is for the National Iranian Oil Company to continue shutting down wells. Already, production has declined from 3.5 to 3.3 million barrels per day.

Once they are shut down and the pressurizing of the aging neglected wells stopped, salt water seepage will make it costly and difficult to reactivate them.  When they are reopened, production is likely to be reduced.  This is the long term damage that the sanctions will have upon the economy.

How long can they endure the losses?  That is the question that the Ayatollah has to be asking.

So far, there are no signs that people are starving from food shortages, and there is no indication that people are taking their grievances into the streets.  Regardless, Tehran cannot ignore the long term damage to the economy and the potential for social disorder.

Right now, the bombs are not falling.  Sooner or later, though, the risk of war must be resolved.  They cannot ignore that Section 1245 is a declaration of war; and must be treated accordingly.  The Ayatollah has said, “Threat for threat.”

Ayatollah Khamenei compares the present situation of Iran to Mohammed and his early followers who were besieged for three years in the desert of Saudi Arabia.  When there seemed to be no hope, they struck the surrounding superior army and defeated it at Badr and Kheybar.

He sees Iran is also surrounded by an enemy.  They are being confronted by two carrier battle groups with a formidable destructive capacity that Iran cannot hope to stop or to match; the repeated threats from politicians in the United States and Israel to attack Iranian nuclear facilities; the newest sanctions that are slowly strangling the economy; and Khamenei believes that it is all for the sole purpose of regime change.

That raises the question.  How does a minor military power contend with the forces available to the United States?  The leaders in Tehran talk about closing the Straits of Hormuz and developing new missiles.  It is all bravado that Khamenei hopes will calm anxieties at home and frighten potential aggressors.

Over the three decades of the Islamic Republic, the Iranians have been careful about pushing Washington to the point that it would retaliate militarily.  The Ayatollah is not going to provoke the U.S. to destroy the theocratic regime and his political career.

“….to defend ourselves we will attack on the same level as the enemies attack us,” Khamenei said on television in March.  Section 1245 is economic warfare.  That is most likely to be the battlefield that Khamenei will choose and it fits perfectly into the strategies employed over the centuries by the persecuted Shia minority

Where is the United States vulnerable economically?  It is the draconian character of the sanctions.

At the end of June, Washington did what was expected.  All twenty of Iran’s regular buyers were granted six month wavers that will push the next decision beyond the November election.  To have found any of the twenty governments to be in violation of the sanction restrictions would have compelled Washington to deny access to the U.S. financial system.  That would have Sparked an economic war with countries taking sides in support or in opposition to the United States.

It is no secret that many governments object to the sanctions and are willing to deal outside of normal channels for a reduced price.  If the Iranians should use the new private traders to dump a few million barrels of oil onto the market at a sharply discounted price, they just might encourage one of these governments to openly defy the United States for a bargain.  Should the United States imposes restrictions upon the offender, that could trigger an unwanted trade war,  while ignoring the challenge would render the sanctions meaningless and invite everyone else to go bargain hunting.

As a persecuted minority, the Shia have learned that the weaker in a conflict must employ cunning rather than muscle,. The philosophy is the core principle of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard that focuses upon the use of asymmetric warfare.  Employing economic tactics is just another form of the asymmetric warfare.

It is the inherent weakness of the alliance that is Iran’s strength. The unwillingness of Washington to pressure supposed allies and the simple fact that there are buyers willing to defy the sanctions secretly reveals the cracks in the system. If the Iranians can break through the weak point in the American siege, they will be able to repeat without firing a shot the triumph of Badr and Kheybar.

Support Your Local Terrorist Government

This graphic says it all:

How many of you can honestly argue that our government is not terrorists?

Of course it is so much bigger than Iran. The Empire’s lust for Iran is really as much of a side issue as anything else. The real enemies in our sights are much bigger and badder.

Even out former elected officials are saying such (according to Washington’s Blog). Lt. Gen William Odom said:

Because the United States itself has a long record of supporting terrorists and using terrorist tactics, the slogans of today’s war on terrorism merely makes the United States look hypocritical to the rest of the world.

To have any American insist that we are not an Empire or that we are justified in what we do because we are America (or whatever insane idea you might have), if you simply put the shoe on the other foot, you will quickly notice how hypocritical that notion is. We would never allow anyone to tell us what to do and how to act (except when it comes to the bidding of Israel). It is worldwide and don’t think for a second that our neighbors won’t be getting some soon.

Steve Lendman explains that Chavez is next on our side of the world:

Just read thru the list of accusations that America has sided Venezuela with and I challenge you to see if these accusations are really us looking at a mirror. The fact is that no matter how much the MSM and the criminals in charge of our politics tell us how bad Chavez and Venezuela is, the truth is that America is the world’s only real threat. We would do good to emulate what Venezuelans have done over the past decade.

In highlighting Venezuela’s Constitution, Steve lets us know what the agenda for that true, democratic country (as opposed to the Fascist state we live in) is. Maybe we should change ours, since the criminals have now made it basically null and void. we could start with their preamble:

Its Preamble “establish(ed) a democratic, participatory and self-reliant, multiethnic and multicultural society in a just, federal and decentralized State that embodies the values of freedom, independence, peace, solidarity, the common good, the nation’s territorial integrity, comity and the rule of law for this and future generations.”

It also “guarantees the right to life, work, learning, education, social justice and equality, without discrimination or subordination of any kind; promotes peaceful cooperation among nations and further strengthens Latin American integration in accordance with the principle of nonintervention and national self-determination of the people, the universal and indivisible guarantee of human rights, the democratization of imitational society, nuclear disarmament, ecological balance and environmental resources as the common and inalienable heritage of humanity….”

Sounds to me that Obama (or any of the current criminal elite) could learn something from these people.
