US/NATO/EU Based on 4th Reich, Goal is the Establishment of the ZIONIST NWO

STOP US/NATO THE WORLD WANTS PEACE!!

STOP NATO

In 2013, before the US mired down the Russian Federation with their destruction of Ukraine which is an attack by proxy on Russia. There was a wonderful worldwide media outlet called the Voice of Russia which was destroyed from the indside by Russian 5th columists which led to its liquidation. I worked day and night to stop the invasion of Syria that we are seeing today. My articles and interviews are still topical. I was prevented from investigating the fact that ISIS/IS/IL is a CIA/Mossad/NATO secret army which is destabilizing the region and in fact winning territory for Israel. Here is some of that work:  Efforts to Stop NATO Syrian Invasion

US/NATO Missiles 5 Minutes from Moscow? by John Robles

31 May, 2014  23:28

Washington and all of the organizations and individuals responsible for the February 22 coup d'état in Kiev may be patting each other on the back, getting out the cigars and congratulating themselves on a job well done but their victory is one which has no meaning in the long term and will once again show to the world, if it has not already, the completely myopic vision of the US foreign policy establishment, the complete and total disregard for international law and the lives of the world's peoples and the complete hypocrisy with which they operate.

In the long run the short lived victory will have the opposite effect than that which the US believes it has achieved and even the US/NATO Prompt Global Strike goal of placing nuclear missiles within a ten minute flight time of Moscow, will in the end be a complete failure.

US/NATO and Prompt Global Strike

The single most significant reason behind the fact that politicians, analysts, specialists, journalists, diplomats and any other individual interested in or attempting to follow and make sense of the events in Ukraine are all having a hard time understanding the situation (other than the complete Orwellian-Goebbels-Ministry of Truth turning night into day media operation) is that the entire US/NATO/EU Ukraine Operation has at its core a purely strategic military interest. This overriding military objective is the neutralization of Russia's nuclear deterrence capabilities, this includes rendering ineffective all elements of the Russia's nuclear Triad and the ability to launch a first strike directly on Moscow, with Moscow being unable to defend itself or launch its retaliatory strike. The "secret" military objective is behind the entire destabilization effort in Ukraine, just as the military objectives were at the core of the destruction of country after country in the Middle East. Therefore all secondary events subordinated to this core objective may not seem to make sense to the observer who may only see hypocrisy, double standards and even schizophrenic-like behavior coming from the West and from those orchestrating seemingly unrelated events to coalesce into conditions allowing for the attainment of their objective.

It does not take the specialized training and acumen of an intelligence analyst or military strategist to figure out the obvious. With the US Military Doctrine now one with the idea of "preventive first strike" at its core (formulated to officially grant legitimacy to the illegal strategy of aggressive war) which means destroying a perceived enemy threat before it has a chance to carry out any possible attack, the reason for US/NATO expansion and the placing of first nuclear strike capable missiles and supporting infrastructure around Russia and on its borders is clear.

Again aggressive war is a Crime Against Peace and Crime Against Humanity but by clever wording and by claiming national defense or defense of "US interests" or even "NATO partners" such manipulation, while not changing international law or the Geneva Conventions allows the US/NATO to be able to attack any opponent without fear of retribution.

The real purpose of the Prompt Global Strike (PGS) system, which officially foresees US/NATO of being able to launch and deliver ballistic missiles to any point on the planet under an hour, is carefully obfuscated and hidden by its proponents and designers. The purpose of PGS, AEGIS and all of the elements which make up the system is to allow the US, with NATO as a subordinate, to launch a nuclear first strike. The PGS system, in addition to the nuclear Triad also envisages a space launched kinetic weapon which would cause impact damage similar to meteor strikes.

What we have in effect, after the end of the Cold War, is an out of control US/NATO military industrial complex which has continued to grow at an alarming rate and has continued to devise new methods to annihilate countries and entire populations through overt and covert means. This may be excused by proponents of Pax Americana, neo-conservative chicken hawks and the whole array of Russophobes and dreamers of a Fourth Reich poisoning the entire planet, but expansion of NATO into a Global First Strike Expeditionary Force is illegal and a threat to the world peace, security and stability.

NATO PGS is just a key part of the plan for assisting the US in fulfilling its strategic military and geopolitical goal of establishing complete and total unchallenged American hegemony on the countries and peoples of the world. There is no real threat to justify it as a defensive system and it must be deemed illegal and stopped by the countries of the world who must finally band together and demand peace and an end to those who are against it.

Back to Ukraine and its strategic importance. With the development by the US/NATO of hypersonic nuclear capable ICBMS if NATO is allowed to place its missiles in Ukraine, if for example they are allowed to annex the eastern regions as well and place NATO missiles near Novaya Guta for example, then they will have their weapons only 450 kilometers (280 miles) from the heart of Moscow. With the development of the latest hypersonic missiles which are said to be able to travel at speeds of up to 3,600 miles per hour, that would allow the US/NATO to deliver a nuclear strike directly on the Kremlin in 4.66 minutes, a delivery time making a reaction extremely difficult.

Russia Implement a Similar Strategy?

Now just for a moment imagine if Russia were implementing a similar strategy: attempting to install missile elements less than 1,000 kilometers from Washington; attacking countries all over South and North America, overthrowing governments in Mexico, Canada and the like. Sound ridiculous? But that is exactly what the US is doing. Imagine if the US had lost the Cold War and agreed to become a Communist country and then the USSR started invading and destroying all the countries around it, killing millions of people in the process. That is exactly what US/NATO is doing and they must be stopped.

Media Takeover

In order to facilitate continuing illegal regime change operations and military expansion the populations of the states who tax dollars are going to fund all of it need to be cowed and dumbed down into submission. They need to be manipulated into believing that there is a threat that warrants the continued out of control growth of the US/NATO military machine. They also need to be convinced that there is an enemy. Russia is that enemy. Hence what we on the ground see as an alternative reality was created. They have turned the facts on their head and in reality installed a nazi coup that is killing the civilian population and they are attempting to blame Russia.

Russian General Leonid Ivashov called the manipulation of the media by the US/NATO "the using of Goebbels like methods". General Ivashov was the head of the Russian Ministry of Defense and is the current president of the Academy of Geopolitical Studies:

“Apparently they [officials of the European Union and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry] have dedicated themselves, and continue to do so, to deeply and thoroughly studying the doctrine of Dr. Goebbels. . . They present everything backwards from reality. It is one of the formulas which Nazi propaganda employed most successfully: . . . They accuse the party that is defending itself, of aggression. What is happening in Ukraine and Syria is is a project of the West, a new type of war: in both places you see a clear anti-Russian approach, and as is well known, wars today begin with psychological and information warfare operations. . . Kerry and Obama are encouraging in Kiev what they harshly repress in their country. European leaders break up unauthorized demonstrations with hoses, throwing demonstrators in jail, while in the Ukrainian case they do the exact opposite, and on top of that they threaten Russia. Logically, this is part of information warfare.

“Keep in mind that, under the cover of information commotion, U.S. ships are entering the Black Sea, that is, near Ukraine. They are sending marines, and they have also begun to deploy more tanks in Europe. . . We see that on the heels of the disinformation operation a land-sea, and possibly air operation is being prepared.

"They haven't even taught [opposition leaders] Klitchko, Yatsenyuk and Tyahnybok to run a government efficiently. The main thing is for them to take power, and destroy the Ukrainian state."

The Nation Destruction Business

After 9-11 Neo-Con Paul Wolfowitz, the then US Deputy Secretary of Defense stated that the US Government is now in the business of destroying countries, executing presidents and changing governments at will.

General Wesley Clark who was the Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, took issue with the Neo-Con architects from the Project for a New American Century and gave testimony that the US planned to overthrow seven countries after 9/11: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran.

Mr. Clark called the post 9-11 overtaking of the US Government a coup and said it was plotted by Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz and "a half dozen other collaborators from the Project for the New American Century". In a report Glen Greenwald cites a US Secretary of Defense Memo which gave even more detail and put a timeframe on the plan: "I just got this memo from the Secretary of Defense’s office. It says we’re going to attack and destroy the governments in 7 countries in five years – we’re going to start with Iraq, and then we’re going to move to Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran."

My List of Countries Destroyed by US/CIA/NATO

The following is a list of countries, other than Ukraine, where the US has organized coup d’états, supported revolutions, overthrown governments, invaded, annexed, supported groups or forces who overthrew or attempted to overthrow governments or outright executed the leaders.

Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Bosnia, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, China, Colombia, Congo, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Germany, Greece, Grenada, Guam, Guatemala, Haiti, Hawaii, Honduras, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Korea, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Macedonia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, Samoa, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, South Dakota, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, Uruguay, USSR, Venezuela, Vietnam, Virgin Islands, Yemen, Yugoslavia and Zaire (Congo).

What they have done and are doing to Native Americans might also be added to the list and as the continuing genocide of the indigenous peoples is the foundation of endemic "American" racism and exceptionalism.

US/NATO Lawlessness, Post-USSR Dehumanization and the 1% by John Robles

11 March, 2014  08:08

With the end of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and hence an end to a movement toward world Socialism and Communism we have seen the dehumanizing forces of capitalism spreading throughout the world and stifling the will and the very nature of the people and the human race as a whole. 

Communism was supposed to lift up the proletariat and raise the workers to the status of those who governed them while bringing those in the ruling class down to a level that was closer to that of the people they were supposed to be ruling.

This very concept was the antithesis of Capitalism, which under the pretense of allowing for opportunities for those who worked hard to rise up socially and economically, was believed to be better than Communism. Yet western Capitalism has now shown itself for what it truly is, a system where only those at the top can prosper and control the rest leading to the creation and rule of what we have in the world today, the 1 percent.

The end of the USSR was not just the end of the greatest power that the history of mankind has seen but also the signaled the end of the idea that the worker, the proletariat, and thus the general human population for under Communism we were all workers, also had the right to human dignity and were also just as important than those who are gifted with being able to hold and maintain power and wealth. In other words the ruling class. Without the USSR as a balance and a threat to global capitalism those in power and those at the top of the capitalist system were free to begin the complete and total dehumanization of the 99%.

As has become the vernacular this ruling class is now called the 1% (thanks to the Occupy Movement) and the standard dehumanizing term, I say dehumanizing because it removes the concept of class and oppressor from the equation and turns them into just a number protecting their identities. But what is the 1%? The 1% is an official union of elites and monied corporate interests that have subverted and taken over the government of the United States and its allies and are literally attempting to take over the world, subjugate and enslave its people and control all of the lands, resources and most importantly capital.

The 1% do not have a political or ideological platform with which they interface with the people of the world. They also are free from the constraints of international law, sovereignty and national or state loyalty. They have one goal, the complete and total taking over of the world. Hence the 1% are free to include almost anyone in their “club” be they Nazis, Jews, Muslims, Evangelical Christians, or anyone else. The only requirement is huge amassed wealth and the willingness to use power and subvert peoples and governments to assist in the fulfilling of their master plan which is a New World Order (NOW) and a one world government which will cement their control of ALL peoples countries and resources.

The USSR was not pliable or workable into such a plan, the very idea of Communism, that the individual was important was the antithesis of their aspirations and hence had to be destroyed. Thus the United States was chosen as the instrument (if not the instigator) and the state to facilitate this takeover. The political, social-economic conditions and more importantly the instruments for iron state control were already in place. What they needed was a catalyst and an event to bring about their plan. This was drawn up by a neo-conservative think tank called the Project for a New American Century (PNAC).

The PNAC thought they were drawing up a plan for establishing American hegemony worldwide and American control of the world but they were mistaken, the end plan calls for the end of the United States as it was originally conceived. With a people completely subjugated and in no way “free” or living in a democracy. Engaging and manipulating the neo-conservative thinkers and believers and those on the far right was necessary because they were effective in demonizing and gathering support to dehumanize and subjugate the rest of the population. This dehumanization is key to establishing their NWO. People must not believe they have no power or are important, people must not believe they can stop the 1% and even more importantly the people must be brought to believing they have absolutely no rights or liberties or willingly give those up.

9-11 was the catalyst that brought it all together. It allowed for the military industrial complex and the organs of state security to establish a dictatorship of security and to expand their reach beyond national borders and spread word wide. It was also more important in that, while calling it an outrage and the reason for the stripping away of rights necessary for the introduction of the endless-war-hyper-security-paradigm, it showed to those who questioned the official version, and those who rightfully understood that something was wrong, that humans were valueless and could be wiped off the face of the earth at will and nothing would ever be done about it. 9-11 was also important because it proved that the global 1% could in fact do whatever it was they wanted and work in unison.

Everything we have seen, the internet, the violent repression of the Occupy Movement, the continued destruction and targeting of independent thinking and socialist states, the iron control and manipulation of the media, the illegal detention of hundreds at Guantanamo, the trampling on the rights of whistleblowers and those who seek the truth, the continued advance against Russia and China and the overthrow and destruction of state after state are all part of their plan. You are not human to them, your country is not important to them, they will destroy and subjugate you and your people and as they want you to believe, there is nothing you can do about it.

Who Are the 1%?

Saying we will never know who they are will only be serving their interests. I argue that we will know (if in fact we do not already know “shudder”) and that knowledge will be made available to the people soon, no matter how hard the 1% have tried to obfuscate and stay in the shadows.

Judging by what we have seen and perhaps more importantly, what we have not seen, the 1% is actually a circle of individuals much smaller than what has been publicized to date. They are compartmentalized and organized in tiers with only need to know knowledge of their part of the “master plan”. Behind it, in the shadows, and at the top with full knowledge there may only be as little as 3-7 people.

Note: Describing a global conspiracy of this scale from the outside is not really possible and may be an effort in futility but it is one that has to be done, for it is necessary for you dear reader to understand what we are being subjected to. I do not claim to have the answers, I merely wish to report on my observations and conclusions.

At the top of the hierarchy are the heads of the key instruments of control. But even these individuals, no matter how powerful they are or appear to be are not privy to the master plan. These individuals are changed at will when they either know too much or are no longer performing their proper function. In the US Government they include the President of the United States, the heads of the CIA, the NSA, the FBI, the Federal Reserve, the Department of Justice, the newly formed DHS, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and all other instruments of control.

In the public domain and internationally this tier is populated by the heads of international financial institutions, military, scientific and energy bodies and alliances, legal and regulatory bodies, educational organizations, energy and agricultural trade bodies, medical associations and media conglomerates, including: the UN, the IMF, NATO, the ICC, the IAEA, the EU and almost the entire global network of corporate media.

Internationally this tier is also populated by the heads of state of “allied” nations, the directors of intelligence services and militaries and the heads of central banks and exchanges and financial bodies. Again this of course includes the global media. In order to ensure the control and manipulation of these bodies internationally the NSA and FVEY countries use all of the resources at their disposal to ensure control. This is why the Snowden revelations have caused such a stir among the US elites.

The NWO requires global cooperation in subjugating and controlling the masses and manipulating economies and all spheres of societal and political life. If one is to accept that the events of 9-11 were an orchestrated inside job to serve as a catalyst towards global takeover and that it was a joint US/Israeli/Saudi operation then the level of this “cooperation” and the lengths they will go has been revealed.

Saudi control of Al-Qaeda throughout the Middle East was revealed by the head of Saudi’s intelligence, Prince Bandar last June in a released conversation with President Vladimir Putin, during which attempted to bribe and then threaten the Russian leader with terrorist acts. Bandar, a long Bush family friend, also admitted that Chechen terrorists and terrorists in Syria were under his control.

Connections between Israeli Mossad and Saudi in 9-11 are documented all over the internet even though all such claims are demonized and marginalized as conspiracy theories. Since the US Government has never properly investigated the events or offered a believable explanation and in light of confessions and admissions by elites such as Larry Silverstein and John Kerry on orders to “pull” demolish the WTC buildings these Saudi/Mossad/Al-Qaeda/CIA connections take on more meaning.

So who is the 1%? Who is really in power and control of the world and who are the members of the alliance and what is their agenda? President Putin and the leaders of the BRICS are definitely not part of the conspiracy, I think that is clear but the list of players may or may not surprise you. These are mostly hereditary power brokers and their families who have stayed in the shadows but maintained their positions some for over a hundred years.

If like with any crime we look at who has benefitted the most and follow the rule that these people will not make themselves known then among the top 7 suspects and beneficiaries are the following: The Rockefeller Family, the Morgan Family and the Carnegie Family are probably at the top, with the House of Saud, the Bush Family, the Vanderbilt Family, the hidden owners of nazi founded Volkswagen, Benyamin Netanyahu and representatives of MOSSAD and Israel and perhaps one or two others on the second tier.

These families and their relatives and cronies control almost the entire US military industrial complex (GE, Raytheon and others), big oil (Exxon, Shell, ets.), manufacturing, agriculture and food production. Through indirect influence and even direct positions in the government, such as John Rockefeller IV and his stints on the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, they control almost every aspect of the American Government.

Many members of these families have also been key in developing CIA and the western intelligence apparatus and many of the most odious CIA programs, including eugenics and race control through genetic manipulation. They were also key in allowing 40,000 nazis to find refuge in the US after WWII and many have benefitted from and even implemented nazi ideas, scientific research and plans into being. One might spread this to Europe and ask why the founder of the European Commission and Union Walter Hallstein was a captured nazi lawyer who was taken to America and then released.

It is also interesting to note that nazi style eugenics was not the creation of the Nazis but was something invented in America and funded by the Carnegie family long before the nazis ever existed.

Israeli ties to the 1% are largely in banking, diplomacy and media control and include Gerald Levin, the Bronfman family, Tanley Gold, Sumner Redstone, Dennis Dammerman, Peter Chernin, Samuel Newhouse and Shamrock Holdings, these are Jewish individuals and Israeli holdings which control almost all of the western media and world media through subsidiaries. Their US media control includes: ABC, NBC, CBS, the Turner Broadcasting System, CNN, MTV, Universal Studios, MCA Records, Geffen Records, DGC Records, GRP Records, Rising Tide Records, Curb/Universal Records, Interscope Records and many hundreds of more magazines, web sites and newspapers.

Middle East and Muslim ties are also prevalent but they are mostly related to terrorism, oil and filling orders for Israel and the US with regard to the Middle East as well as international terrorism and false flag attacks.

Another group of particular interest is the Bilderberg Group and who the real hidden organizers and funders of that forum may be, their agenda is clearly one of maintaining the 1%’s hold on the power and wealth of the planet and clearly they have targeted Russia and excluded it from their elite club. Their last secret meeting included Russia on the agenda and unifying the US and Europe.

Aspects of Dehumanization

In order for these elites to continue to rule and exploit the world and the masses one of the key aspects of their control is dehumanizing their targets. Like the nazis stripped the Jews of their citizenship before they killing them, modern elites also dehumanize and degrade their targets.

In the modern world this dehumanization has taken many new and interesting forms. Things that Marx and Lenin would have never dreamed about when fighting the dehumanizing aspects of the industrial revolution on the Proletariat; a concept and member of the world community which modern day elites and media do not even admit exists.

Dehumanization is necessary when injustice is carried out on people and peoples. It is also a necessary ingredient for genocide and the justification of apartheid like policies and the maintenance of the ruling class in power.

The United States, a country founded on genocide and built by slaves, was the master in dehumanization. The indigenous people the committed genocide against they simply branded as animals, the slaves as sub-human. Those polices of genocide have never been annulled and that over-all thinking continues to this day and may have been the inspiration for nazi eugenics.

The dehumanization that occurs today is much more subtle but includes many different faces and means to keep the populace down and keep the elites in power. One of the most insidious is the restriction of healthcare to the rich and the privileged. Another is making education only accessible to the elites another is the continued existence of policies and unspoken rules that do not allow “minorities” to enter the upper ranks of the capitalist system.

The Anonymous Movement

While Anonymous activists fight for social justice and the beautiful things that make us human, the very mask they wear has a dehumanizing aspect on the world’s population. Why a white man and a English folk hero who is openly burned in effigy? This figure means nothing to blacks and other ethnic groups who also have legitimate complaints against persecution. Not only is the mask dehumanizing in and of itself but the treatment of hacktivists from Anonymous is also dehumanizing. The power elites make sure that the real hacktivists receive ungodly prison sentences while the rest are terrorized into hiding behind their masks. A necessity to escape a fate worse than death.

To the average consumer of media the mask immediately has an association with a person who was an enemy of the state and for most of the population, who does not take the time to find out who exactly Guy Fawkes was and what he did, when the Anon member receives the same fate as Fawkes there is little outcry.

The very act of hactivism is also dehumanizing but also works in the service of the elites. They know that a simple DDoS attack does nothing but it is portrayed as being something monstrous. This has led to many people who would be out on the streets taking part in real demonstrations and becoming involved in politics sitting at their computers thinking that they can make a real difference. This is good for the elites because it keeps their “opposition” fragmented, disorganized and weak and it keeps the real protestors off the streets and away from real demonstrations where they can be seen and thus be more effective.

The Occupy Movement

While the goals of the Occupy Movement were also noble and honorable the elite managed to infiltrate and subvert the movement. The simplest tactics was to give them so many things to complain about that the movement imploded and fragmented under the weight of too many different causes.

This conglomeration of causes led to a dehumanizing aspect of the Occupiers, they were not people fighting for equality, for example, but just a bunch of social malcontents whose fates were no longer of any importance to the masses.

The Internet

While we now can not live without it, the internet has had the most divisive and dehumanizing effect on the world’s population. People have literally forgotten many of the social skills and social interactions that kept the people together.

Computers have dumbed down the educational level and thus the knowledge of people worldwide with children now not even knowing how to write a normal letter and almost incapable of normal human interaction. This dumbed down populace glued to their screens and gadgets is very useful and beneficial for the 1%. They are easy to control and track and manipulate.

Technology

While technology is supposed to improve our lives and the lives of the people the most important advances; the gadgets and devices and cars and computers require constant funds to obtain them and literally turn many into slaves for their gadgets. Then there is the endless time that people spend interacting with their gadgets. Time that could be spent reading, interacting, discussing, building relationships and alliances, and again becoming involved in politics and fighting for social justice. For this reason for the 1% gadgets and technology are a wonderful diversion from the real issues.

Economic Manipulation

The key tool in dehumanizing people is economic manipulation. That is why economic crisis, job uncertainty, inflation and low wages are beneficial for the 1%. If the populace is kept afraid, poor and beggarly they are easy to manipulate and control. Making the instruments to obtain economic freedom and independence, education, documents and the like are therefore things that should be almost unattainable.

The dehumanization and instilling in the populace the belief that they are economically worthless or at risk works wonderfully for the 1% to keep people obedient and pliant. This makes sure that workers will not protest or go against the rulers or the state out of simple fear of losing their jobs and their very livelihoods.

While discussing economic manipulation we cannot forget usury and the way that the populace is manipulated by interest rates, credits and mortgages into literally becoming slaves of the 1%. Think about this for a minute: why shouldn’t you as a human being have the right to have a home, just as Mr. 1% does? This is an aspect of Capitalism that maintains the status quo, and the bankers do more, they maintain the racial supremacy by only allowing certain race groups to obtain loans. Just ask any African American.

Non Issues

The constant introduction by those in power and the media in the west of non-issues has a dehumanizing aspect on all those who reasonable oppose such issues or did not even consider them an issue to begin with. Such as gay marriage. An abhorrent thought to most of the population and one, such as abortion, which is a strictly personal choice, thrown in the face of the populace to endlessly debate and argue about. Divide and conquer in a socio-political framework.

Guantanamo

For the general population and the thinking and reasonable individual, such as you dear reader, the illegal prison at Guantanamo is like a lighthouse for dehumanization. There are hundreds of innocent men being tortured and held and we know they are being held illegally and the state has let us know their detention is illegal, yet they continue to do so. Why? this is a symbol for them. This is a triumph for them. This shows the populace and the world that they are supreme, they are above the law and you and I and anyone who they consider an enemy is not human.

Julian Assange and WikiLeaks

The case of the poor young man who is forced to live in a windowless room in an Embassy in London is perhaps one of the most dehumanizing aspects that the 1% could have thought up. The world knows he did nothing wrong, they know he is innocent, they know his rights are being violated, but he is an enemy of the 1% and his continued predicament proves that they are immune from following the law. They are more human than this poor idealistic man. He is no longer a human according to them and like the men at Guantanamo and everyone they brand as an enemy, he is no longer human.

Solutions

The people of the world are tired or being dehumanized, unless of course they are of the privileged class and enjoy all of the good things the world has to offer, but for the rest of the world, who also have the right to self-determination and a good life, they are growing tired. They are tried of the invasions, the illegal wars, the stealing of resources the destruction of countries, the economic enslavement, the illegality of those in power, the international lawlessness, the endless war on terror and beating of the drum of war. People want peace but where can they turn?

Before for those disillusioned with Capitalism there was the hope of building Socialism or a just Communist society, now there is just capitalism and endless war. The people need a new thinking, a new movement which will defend their rights to exist and to be humans. They need a movement and an idea that will lift all of them up and that idea is not the distraction of gay marriage or the endless war and demonization of other peoples. That idea is not endless war and the stealing of resources and the raping of the planet.

The world has a new Proletariat called the 99% and it must in some way unite and demand that it be treated fairly and justly and with the respect that it deserves. for the 99% are also people, with hopes and dreams and desires and wants, these human needs are not only for of those at the top.

An International Body With Teeth

The only solution, before it is too late for the world and for the peoples of the world who have been targeted for destruction and/or enslavement by illegal and lawless regimes then is the creation of n international body which has teeth and can tell certain states the international must be respected. That can stop certain states from invading others at will, executing anyone it wants extra-judicially and subverting and taking over any other country it so desires.

The international bodies that now exist are impotent in dealing with their illegality, hence new ones must be created. Ones with teeth who are unable to be influenced, subverted or bought off. But where and by whom? I may be wrong in my solution so then I ask you: what is yours?

“There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part! You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels…upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!” – Mario Savio

President Vladimir Putin Ends Russia/NATO ABM Cooperation (Right Before Ukraine Coup)

President Putin ends Russia/NATO ABM cooperation

3 November, 2013 23:21

In another powerful and significant move for peace, the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin has cancelled a presidential order which in 2011, had set up an interdepartmental working group under the authority of the Russian Presidential Administration designed to develop ways to establish cooperation with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in the sphere of 'missile defense'.

Sigh of relief

Many experts and NATO watchers familiar with the decree and the attempts by the Russian Federation to develop an equal partnership relationship with NATO on the basis of mutual respect and transparency may now breathe a collective sigh of relief that President Putin has finally run out of patience with the alliance.

The wisdom of the president can not be questioned after what many have been saying for years and dozens of failed attempts to develop a partnership with the alliance. These “failures” have been many fold and compounded by NATO own actions and have included NATO insistence on Like the proverbial Russian bear, President Putin has been slow to be provoked into action but once that action has been decided it is resolute.

Empty rhetoric

It was almost obvious from the outset that despite all of its rhetoric to the contrary, rhetoric that has proven time and time again to be as empty as the minds of those espousing it, that NATO had no intention of allowing the Russian Federation into its “fold” as an equal partner.

This total inability by NATO to adjust and modernize its strategic mission taking into account the contemporary realities of Russia as a leading European power interested in peace, rule of law and mutually beneficial cooperation, may be due to its inherent nature of being an organization that was designed, and whose only purpose was, to contain the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and/or that NATO has become a wholly owned global proxy for the attempted advancement of short-sighted, myopic US geopolitical military domination and American hegemony by force.

Failure of cooperation

Since the chaotic days at the end of the cold war the newly formed and struggling Russian Federation, rising from the ashes of the shattered and broken greatest power in the history of mankind, vainly attempted to find a way to cooperate, and at times it seemed to appease, its former Warsaw Pact adversary, one which should have been disbanded at the moment of the demise of the Soviet bloc. But unfortunately the lust for hegemony and global military domination and the new modus operandi of “advancement of interests by force” did not allow the West to dismantle their war and death machine.

This first occurred in Yugoslavia and Serbia, when NATO promised Russia to allow Russian peacekeepers, the when the time came for Russian boots on the ground quickly did an about face.

This slap in the face to Russia and Russian interests and allies then occurred many times again, as NATO was used to launch illegal wars of aggression and military adventures against country after country all over the world.

Then with what has been revealed to be the false “War on Terror” paradigm, when Russia on countless occasions attempted to cooperate express its will, Russia was spurned time and time again.

Lastly, we have seen that despite the new nature of Russia, as a growing democratic country, promoting peace and cooperation, NATO continued expanding to the east and in fact expanding globally and even into space, while at the same time surrounding Russia with missiles and military weapons, under the pretense of the bogey man of an attack from the equally demonized Islamic Republic of Iran.

Seeking to become an equal mutual partner in their Missile Shield, Russia attempted time and time again to work with NATO. However NATO locked out all attempts by Russia to participate and gain assurance that the missiles were not being placed to neutralize Russia itself.

Russia repeatedly asked for a written guarantee, in light of the track record by the West of proving their spoken guarantees mean nothing, something proven in Serbia and Kosovo, but one was never provided, let alone considered.

Russia attempted to introduce what was called the Sectoral Approach, a wise and carefully planned as well as effective “shield” strategy to protect both Europe and Russia itself, but was spurned at every turn.

Missile defense a Trojan horse for a first strike

It has been proven and is now part of the public record that the interceptor missiles and missile shield elements of the US and its NATO allies, the ones that have been surreptitiously placed to surround Russia, can be turned into first strike offensive weapons with almost the literal flick of a switch. These so-called “defensive” missiles are also largely capable of delivering nuclear payloads directly into the heart of Russia.

This can be further underlined by witnesses to US and NATO Missile Defense Shield tests and scientists knowledgeable in radar and the elements that make up the shield. As a “shield”, the US/NATO missile system is almost completely ineffective allowing more than 40% of missiles to pass unstopped and almost 100% ineffective against small missiles and shorter range weapons. It is a given that the designers of the system are aware of this. So why install the system? For a totally devastating and unanswerable first strike.

Peace

The victory for President Putin, the Russian Federation and peace in Syria has now proven beyond any shadow of a doubt that President Putin is a leader who truly honors and believes in peace, rule of law and transparency. Unlike the Nobel Peace Prize winning Obama, who attempts to continue policies of aggressive war, advancement of interests by force and personally approved extra-judicial execution by drone. President Putin has said he does not care about the Noble Peace Prize and in this he is sincere. He cares about peace.

New arms race

NATO’s relentless worldwide and eastward expansion have forced countries to build weapons to defend themselves, a right any sovereign nation has against the threat of an aggressor and has caused the world to enter a global arms race the likes of which make the Cold War seem like a training exercise.

Russia, China, Venezuela and North Korea in particular, have been forced to spend billions on defense and their militaries to counter the threat of NATO. And with the constant bellicose elements North Korea and other countries the US does not favor, have been forced to seek a nuclear deterrence. This has led to a much more dangerous world but has proven to be necessary after what the world witnessed was done to Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya by the US and its NATO allies.

Arctic

US/NATO continue to attempt to advance their interests by force and to militarize once neutral and peaceful countries and regions, with the case of Scandinavian countries and even the Arctic. The attempted move into the Arctic by the US/NATO is clearly a strategy to obtain resources and territory by force. Something as illegal as its aggressive wars and the Bush Doctrine of preventive wars.

Russia’s new position in the world

Two recent events, one the refusal by President Putin to be swayed by the threat of terrorist acts by Saudi Prince Bandar with the “full backing of the United States, and two, the prevention of another aggressive attack on asovereign nation by US/NATO on Syria, have once again moved the world into the realm of being a healthy multi-polar place and have effectively put an end to US plans for “Global American Hegemony”, a fact admitted even by grand geopolitical chess architect Zbignew Brzhinky.

Warnings issued

Warning have been issued to Russia from many corners since the beginning of NATO’s eastward expansion. This includes the warnings that the the US/NATO shield can be quickly and seamlessly converted into deadly first strike architecture. So why would Russia continue in attempting to cooperate with a plan to surround itself with NATO missiles? The answers to that may be Machiavellian or they may be as simple as the fact that Russia was attempting to cooperate with the West until the very end, in a peaceful manner.

End of an era

With the very quiet repealing of the presidential order, dated April 25, 2012 officially establishing cooperation with NATO and titled: "On the Repeal of the Russian President's Order 'On the Special Representative of the Russian President for Missile Defense Interaction with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)'", President Vladimir Putin has officially put an end to the era where Russia attempted to appease and cooperate with its former foe NATO and has quietly, once again quietly asserted Russia’s own sovereignty and shown that Russia will stand on the side of peace, not only in word but by quiet dignified deed.

NATO continued shows of aggression

Meanwhile NATO will be holding war games a 30-second jet flight from the territory of the Russian Federation

NATO and the “Phantom Menace”: a Pretext for Global Expansion

 нато флаг нато

27 July, 19:48  

Upcoming NATO military exercises envisage an attack on Poland and an Article 5 NATO intervention against a foreign power, to the dismay of Russia, these exercises continue the outdated “Cold War” thinking of the West, which refuses to let go of such stereotypes and continues to eschew peace and understanding between nations.

NATO and the West have an agenda, and that agenda is complete and total military domination of the world. Operation “Steadfast Jazz 2013” underlines the real intentions of the alliance, and further serves to destabilize the world and a region where countries should be working for peace.

It is clear that the West is being controlled by the military industrial complex and that peace is not something that they envision for the world. NATO as an organization should have been disbanded after the collapse of the Warsaw Pact but they have done quite the opposite and have continued with a global expansion that has made NATO the single largest military power in the history of the world.

No matter that the cold war has long been over, and the West and NATO’s beloved reason for expansion, the “Evil Specter” of Communism in Europe, has been regulated to the pages of history, the U.S. and its NATO allies need phantoms and demons, rogues nations and terrorists, evil aggressors and vicious invaders to justify their own existence and even more so, to justify their own endless aggressive expansion and disguise the fact that such a global expansion is illegal and in fact a plan aimed at the domination of the world by one power.

NATO, which originally was conceived as a military alliance of North Atlantic countries aimed against the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), has continued its expansion unhindered since the end of the Cold War and now includes members, partners and participants of “special programs” on every continent of the planet except Antarctica.

The organization has used the pretext of terrorism to justify its expansion to many countries and has spread the fear of nuclear missile attacks from Iran and North Korea as a way to terrify countries into joining or supporting the organization or allowing them to, in effect, annex their military forces with promises of protection, training and invulnerability.

NATO has continued to encircle the Russian Federation and the People’s Republic of China for over a decade with missiles and what are effectively, with the flick of a switch, first strike weapons and a “shield” which will neutralize any Russian or Chinese responsive attack and the have done so with impunity under the claim that Europe is under some sort of threat from Iranian missiles.

Poland has been a key country in the expansion of NATO to the East and key, due to its location, in neutralizing any sort of Russian defensive of counter response, if it is attacked by the West. It is also the latest location where NATO is planning massive training exercises under the pretext of a supposed NATO article 5 defense of Poland under attack from a “phantom enemy” which could only be Russia.

The planned NATO exercises, with the unlikely name of “Steadfast Jazz 2013”, planned for November, include ex-Soviet Baltic Republics; Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania as well as Poland, and envisage those countries being attacked by a “foreign power”. Some unidentified “phantom menace”, and are reminiscent of the Cold War according to the Deputy Defense Minister of the Russian Federation, Anatoly Antonov.

At a meeting of the Russia-NATO Council in Brussels, the Deputy Defense Minister stated the following: “As we prepared for this meeting, we carefully studied information received from NATO countries about Steadfast Jazz-2013, and I can’t hide the fact that the Russian Defense Ministry was bewildered by the proclaimed goal of this exercise, which envisages the application of Article 5 of the Washington Treaty triggering a response to an aggression against Poland. These drills are in the spirit of the Cold War.”

These words from official Moscow are unlikely to change NATO’s plans as have all previous protests against the alliance’s expansion and the surrounding of Russia with NATO “missile defense” elements, protests which have fallen on deaf ears. NATO has an agenda and they will stop at nothing to fulfill that agenda. The agenda is what you might call an “open secret” and is nothing less than achieving military domination over the entire planet and even the “space” above us.

The U.S. and western military industrial complex are not interested in peace, and while countries in Eastern Europe, former Soviet Republics and other countries across Europe, the Middles East, South America, North America, Scandinavia, Africa and Asia might be spending more on improving their own economies, advancing peace and trade relations with their neighbors and other states, and making life better for their own citizens and those of the world, NATO’s persistent expansion and the demands on member and partner country’s economies and resources diverts precious resources towards their own expansion and the supposed “defense” against “phantom menaces”.

This persistent stance of needing to defend against a “phantom menace” as a pretext towards their own aggressive domination of the world and their own commission of acts of aggression against peaceful countries which do not pose any real threat to the “alliance”, such as Yugoslavia, Libya, Syria, North Korea, Iran, Russia, and China, only serves to destabilize the world and perpetuate an artificial state of endless war and danger.

Sure NATO has not attacked North Korea, Iran, Russia or China, yet, but their aggressive placement of missiles and military infrastructure around these countries and the continuous beating of the war drum by the alliance in no way promotes peace or understanding between nations and in fact has a complete and total destabilizing effect on the entire planet.

Therefore in reality the single biggest threat to peace in today’s world is not from the bogeyman of terrorism, or from a nuclear Iran or North Korea but from the aggressive expansionist saber-rattling polices of the West, namely the United States of America and its NATO subordinates and their constant meddling in countries all over the globe in their endless attempt to dominate and bend the will of the world’s countries to their own agenda. Whether that be access to resources, economic enrichment or other “strategic” goals.

These types of exercises are the antithesis of advancing peaceful relations between nations. The real geopolitical situation which exists in the world, and in particular Europe, today sees no real scenario where Poland is being attacked by an aggressive power (Russia), but the exercises against the phantom menace (which appears to be Russia) serve NATO’s expansion and allows it to further annex and indebt the countries involved.

The fact that NATO members whose militaries are integrated into NATO in effect lose the sovereignty of their militaries is a matter few countries consider and is something that is rarely, if ever touched upon. Just how far countries allow NATO to integrate with their military structures is a question that members should be asking but are not. Blindly trusting the intentions of a military block who ultimate goal is complete and total world domination is a dangerous prospect and one which should set off warning bells but unfortunately the world has been duped into blindly trusting NATO.

NATO Pushes Erdogan into a “Saakashvili” by John Robles

15 October 2012, 14:17  

Did NATO push Erdogan into a “Saakashvili”?

In the grounding and confiscation of part of the cargo of a passenger jet flying from Moscow to Syria and the beating of passengers and crew, many say Turkey committed an illegal act of air-piracy. Has Ankara now decided to take on Moscow? Not likely, but things are not always as they seem, and the hand of NATO and the US are more than just discernable here.

Turkey’s forced grounding of a Syrian Air Airbus A320, with approximately 30 passengers on board has been called an act of air-piracy by the Syrian authorities and Russia has stated the search and seizure of part of the cargo were illegal. Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov said the incident endangered the lives of Russian citizens aboard the plane. Lavrov has also reiterated that Moscow is still waiting for an official explanation from Turkey as to why it refused to allow Russian diplomats aboard the plane to meet with the passengers and crew.

For Turkey it is one thing that it continuously occupies Northern Iraq and that it has decided to launch attacks into Syria but it is a whole nother game when it decides to openly take on the Russian Federation, which like it or not is still a powerful superpower and one which Turkey depends on for everything from gas to tourism.

Russia is also not indifferent to Turkey and has worked with Turkey for years on a number of fronts including plans for a section of the South Stream gas pipeline and plans to assist Turkey in building its first nuclear power plant, both very important projects for both countries and not likely to be affected by this single incident, according to statements by officials on both sides, including Foreign Minister Lavrov.

What is troubling is that Turkey would so openly and blatantly commit such a provocative act right in front of the eyes of the entire world as if daring Russia to react and seeming to challenge the authority of the superpower. What one has to wonder is what has emboldened Turkey to such a point. Could it be that Turkey was pushed into doing so by NATO to test the waters for the invasion of Syria that they so crave? That is one possibility.

Another possibility as to the reasons behind the attack which the world’s press has not looked at but which to me seems quite possible is that Turkey and NATO were after the technology on the plane. It is critical to recall that NATO believes it was Russian Pantsir-S1 surface-to-air defensive missile technology which uses the latest cutting edge system of phased-array radar for both target acquisition and tracking, which was responsible for taking out the Turkish American-made F-4 Phantom on June 22nd.

The Russian Foreign Ministry has stated and media outlets are reporting that there was dual-use radar equipment parts on the plane, all shipped legally and not in any violation of current international conventions. We can postulate, that perhaps the Turkish side and their NATO and CIA intelligence contacts believed that these parts were for air-defense systems being used or upgraded by Syria. This would explain why Turkey took such a risk.

If NATO and the US are preparing for an invasion of Syria, then one of the first things they need to knock out are the country’s radar and air-defense systems. If the F-4 Phantom was a test run, then Western technology proved to be impotent in evading Syrian air defenses and Russian technology.

The fact that Turkey so openly and blatantly committed such an illegal act, points to the fact that there are other hands behind this than what we are all privy to and as we know NATO and the US are for the most part calling all the shots in Turkey. Shall we once again recall Obama and his baseball bat?

Underlining the illegality of Turkey’s actions and the fact that they knew they were acting illegally are several events that occurred on the plane and several facts surrounding the incident. 1: the crew and passengers were beaten, 2: the Turkish side attempted to force the passengers and crew to sign documents saying the plane made an emergency landing, 3: the documents did not mention that the military aircraft were used to ground the plane and the crew and passengers were ordered not to mention them, 4: Russian diplomats were not allowed onto the plane to provide assistance to Russian citizens and 5: the plane was released without part of the cargo on board, which amounts to an act of air-piracy and theft as the parts were being shipped legally and were properly documented.

Depending on what exactly was on board it might take days to weeks for the parts to be copied, studied or tampered with depending on what the goal of the operation is, and have no doubt this was an “operation”. Everything from Erdogan’s statements about “intelligence”, to military personal who beat passengers, to military air-craft being used to force the Airbus A320 passenger jet to the ground, to the already prepared witness statements, point to a carefully planned operation.

Logic tells us that it is highly-unlikely that Turkey, independently, would take on Russia. Turkey in this case is clearly being manipulated and used by the US and NATO, both now and as the fall-guy for the upcoming invasion of Syria. We should recall that arms, mercenaries and terrorists are being spring-boarded into Syria from Turkish bases, and even the mortar that recently killed the Turkish citizens on the border allowing Turkey to begin shelling inside Syrian territory was NATO issue.

Obama and his baseball bat made it clear to the world who is pulling the strings in Turkey, and like in Georgia, the West’s military intentions for the region are clear. Turkey, like Georgia, has become emboldened and reckless in its bid to please its western “partners”, maybe it is time for the Turkish opposition and the Turkish people to step up to the plate and decide they will not be the fall-guy and the patsy in another resource invasion by Washington? Or maybe not.

Saakashvili: Loss of a Geopolitical Chess “Queen” by John Robles

2 October 2012, 18:48  

The loss of Mihail Saakashvili’s party in parliamentary elections in Georgia may spell the end for his regime and a return to democracy in Georgia. It may also spell the warming of relations, soured by Saakashvili, between Russia and Georgia. For the West the elections may be the first step towards his removal from power, the loss of a “Queen”, in their game of geopolitical chess.

Suffering an unexpected blow at the polls in the parliamentary elections, tie-eating Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili, in the middle of the night conceded defeat, opening the trap-door beneath his own feet and paving the way for real change and real democracy in Georgia, but pundits and experts are already saying that he will undoubtedly find a reason to dissolve parliament and call for new elections.

The blow to the plutocratic despot is one that the West cannot allow to stand as they have too much to lose and have invested far too much to quietly just go away, lose their influence and simply mothball all of their plans for the integration of Georgia into the Western Sphere.

It is no secret that Saakashvili is the “West’s man in the Caucuses” the darling of Hillary Clinton and Obama’s US State Department, NATO headquarters and the Pentagon and the intelligence services of the UK and the US. He is yet another despotic dictator that has murdered, oppressed, strangled, tortured and subjugated his people with the support of the West in exchange for advancing their geopolitical agenda in yet another region far removed from their own borders yet where they want control.

The VOR’s Dmitry Babich has already gone into the hypocrisy of the West with regard to Saakashvili, so I won’t go into that right now. Suffice it to say that the hypocrisy when it comes to Saakashvili is total and all encompassing and characterizes the total anti-Russia hysteria by the West, something they need to propagate to continue to have support for their intrusions on the sovereignty of the countries in the region and to justify their aggressive military build-up and the expansion of NATO into the Caucuses.

What the complete loss of power of the Saakashvili regime will mean for the West and for Saakashvili himself is hard to predict exactly, the opposition has shown leniency toward him, so it is possible he may remain in some sort of position of power for the mid-term. However what few have focused on is that his loss may open the door to prosecution and punishment for the crimes he has committed against his own people and against innocent civilians.

These crimes include the recent revelations that his “security” apparatus was responsible for torturing and illegally detaining people opposed to his regime and a plethora of charges that could be brought in relation to how his regime has stifled dissent and cracked down on anyone opposed to his regime. But that would only be the start, there are those who have accused Saakashvili of crimes that could be tantamount to treason for selling out his country to the interests of the West, although prosecution for such a crime is unlikely, that would be one possibility which would end in his execution.

The biggest worry for Saakashvili and his Western paymasters right now should be whether Saakashvili will end up having to face the War Crimes Tribunal in The Hague. According to an article regarding a European Union-Commissioned Report on the invasion of South Ossetia in 2008 by Russia Today, back in October of 2009, citing Interfax, Nestan Kirtadze, international secretary of Georgia's Labor Party concluded that:

“The commission accused Saakashvili of war crimes. Namely, of unleashing active hostilities, of a massive, wide-scale military operation in the South Ossetian capital Tskhinval and the use of prohibited types of weapons, of shelling and destroying nonmilitary facilities, and of attacking military personnel from the peacekeeping mission that was mandated by the United Nations.”

As there is no statute of limitations on war crimes Saakashvili has a lot to worry about and had better stock up on ties.

The winners of the parliamentary elections have said that they will normalize relations with Russia, with the West screaming indignantly about “Russian Influence” as they once again conveniently ignore their own attempts at influencing the country.

As we might recall Georgia shares almost half of her borders with Russia and has classically fallen into Russia’s sphere of influence. We should also remember that that until Saakashvili came to power Russia and Georgia shared a rich and proud history and very close ties and good relations in trade, economic and other cooperation, education and more. This was beneficial for the peoples of both countries.

Saakashvili was one of the crowning jewels in NATO and the West’s consolidation of power and control after the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union. Who would have ever thought that the country that gave the world and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics Joseph Stalin would become a pawn of Western expansionism?

The fall of Saakashvili would mean many things for many people, for one, the tens of thousands of refugees from Georgia that have fled to Europe and other countries could finally return home. It would also mean the utter failure of Hillary Clinton and the West’s plans at geopolitical domination in Russia’s backyard, a nice retirement present and the crowning failure of her diplomatic career.

Regardless of all my musings it is too early to count our chickens. Saakashvili is still in power and will do everything possible, including killing his own people, to stay in power. We will probably see attempts to dissolve parliament, call for a recount of the vote, which he will win, and a massive crack down on the Georgian opposition. Saakashvili has too much to lose to quietly acquiesce and has shown he has no qualms about taking his country down into the abyss with him.

Benghazi: Putin Speaks Out, Romney Out of Touch, NATO Gears Up for Next Aggressive War by John Robles

13 September 2012, 21:41  

Benghazi: Putin speaks out, Romney out of touch, NATO gears up

The details about the events leading up to and surrounding the killing of the US Ambassador in Benghazi continue to come in as the world’s press tries to make sense of it all. Details are coming in that the film, which is reported to have sparked the violence, may have been a carefully planned hoax. As we cannot support the desecration of the Orthodox Faith neither can we support the desecration of the Muslim Faith, but above all we cannot support the killing of innocent individuals.

Speaking to reporters in Sochi Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke out against the killing of the US Ambassador in Benghazi Libya: “We condemn this crime and offer our condolences to the victims' families. The safety of diplomats is protected by international conventions and if someone fails to recognize this, it means that they put themselves outside the framework of the law and outside the framework of modern civilization" President Putin said.

He also said that: "The religious feelings of people of all beliefs must be ‘handled very carefully’ and government reactions to religious provocation must be ‘tough and timely,’ otherwise the people who feel offended will take matters into their own hands to defend their interests and views.”

According to RIA-Novosti President Putin also used the opportunity to reiterate his argument that the West should not support popular uprisings against dictatorships in the Middle East because this could have unpredictable and hazardous consequences.

“We do not support any armed groups that attempt to resolve internal political problems by violent means.” Putin said. He added: “We do not understand these people’s final goals, and we are always worried about the possibility that if we support these armed groups, we could ultimately find ourselves in a deadlock situation. We fear that the region could fall into chaos and that is exactly what’s happening.”

Details about the film that led up to the events in Benghazi are becoming murkier and murkier. With investigative journalists all over the world discovering new details by the hour, the entire event looks like it may have all been secretly planned and orchestrated from beginning to end.

The first reports about what set off the events were of a two-hour film called "Innocence of Muslims" which was produced directed and written by one Sam Bacile, reportedly a California real estate developer and an Israeli Jew. Now things have changed, starting with the identity of the maker of the film, there are reports that nobody with such a name really exists, and there are reports from various sources that say he is not even Jewish and the whole Jewish angle was a provocation. Apparently what we do know is that the individual using the name Sam Bacile is an Egyptian, who speaks Arabic and English.

According to Yigal Palmor an official spokesman for the Israeli Foreign Ministry, speaking to the New York Times: "Nobody knows who he is, he is totally unknown in filmmaking circles in Israel, and anything he did: he is not doing it for Israel, or with Israel, or through Israel in any way." He also called the film’s maker "a complete loose cannon and an unspeakable idiot."

According to the Guardian many of the actors in the so-called “film” were tricked and lied to into thinking they were filming a simple desert saga and that much of the dialogue was dubbed in later. There is also doubt that a two hour film actually does exist and speculation that the entire work consists of only the trailer that has been posted on the internet. It appears that the whole thing may have been a hoax.

Hoax or not the results are real and blood has been shed and the Muslim world has once again been thrown into even more upheaval as if it really needed anymore.

The United States, which never charged anyone with carrying out 9-11, has reported that they already know that al-Qaeda was behind the attack. This is disturbing because the United States is reportedly using and supporting al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria and many other locations as they did in Libya when the US back-insurgents killed Muammar Gaddafi.

Apparently those who killed Ambassador Stevens knew of a US safe-house and attacked that as well, suggesting inside information which may have had to do with Steven’s reported task of liaising with insurgents, terrorist groups and possibly al-Qaeda operatives during the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi. We should recall that Benghazi was the “base of operations” if you will in the invasion and overthrow of Libya. A fact which may have led to the US’ false sense of security in the city.

US Secretary of State Clinton was disbelieving saying she asked herself "how could this happen in a country we helped liberate and in a city we helped to save from destruction." A far cry from her now infamous “We came, we saw, he died!” comment on US television regarding the death of Muammar Gaddafi.

One of the groups being blamed, Ansar al Sharia – meaning Supporters of Islamic Law - which reportedly has ties to al-Qaeda, denies responsibility in the attack. Another group, known as Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb is also suspected in the attack.

The fact that Ambassador Stevens died of smoke inhalation, and was not shot, executed or decapitated suggests that the death may have been accidental but nevertheless this has had no influence on the US response.

The world wide reaction to the killing of Stevens is mixed and surprising for many. The solidarity with the US that was evident after 9-11 is long gone. Many blogs, social networking sites and websites are seeing an increase in the number of people who are against US policy and see this as a justified response to the brutal murder of Gaddafi and the continuing wars and meddling by the US in the Muslim world.

Many in Libya and Egypt are extremely displeased with the “democracy” they were promised after the fall of their leaders, as are many in the Arab Spring countries, where Islamic Fundamentalism is beginning to take a stronger hold over society as living and societal conditions continue to worsen.

The rioting and protests in Egypt over the film have died down but are continuing and there are fears that the anger and the outcry will spread throughout the Muslim World.

Official Washington has attempted to distance itself from the “film” which triggered the event and even with “Pastor” Terry Jones and his anti-Islamic hate speech, reaching the point that even General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, called Jones and asked him to withdraw his support for the film. Jones and his provocative Quran burning stunts have already been responsible for scores of deaths and riots, including the deaths of US servicemen in Afghanistan.

Official Moscow and the Russian Foreign Ministry support the fight against any kind of terrorism and have stated that this is a sign that the US and Moscow need to work closer in the fight against terrorism. Russia in no stranger to terrorism and the FSB and Russian Security Services have been extremely effective in preventing and thwarting hundreds of terrorist attacks by many of the same groups the US is fighting against.

According to NATO expert Rick Rozoff the “Alliance” is deploying two Aegis class destroyers off the coast of Libya as well as having already dispatched Marines to Benghazi and elsewhere in the nation. This includes the guided missile warship USS Laboon and the USS McFaul both equipped with Tomahawk cruise missiles.

He wrote on his Stop NATO site that eight American Marines were flown into Benghazi by helicopter the day after the attack on the U.S. mission, with two of them being killed and two wounded in a fierce mortar attack on the building. Rozoff also wrote that the U.S. has deployed 50 members of the elite U.S. Marine Corps Fleet Antiterrorism Security Team to Libya.

Mr. Rozoff also wrote that: “… with NATO's military operations from the Balkans to Afghanistan and the Horn of Africa, one armed conflict inevitable gives way to another and the Western military bloc continues to execute plans to expand into a global military strike force.”

American politicians have for the most part been neutral towards the current administration and have refrained from placing blame or pointing the finger, most that is except Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney, who attempted to misconstrue statements made by the US Embassy in Cairo and gain political mileage from the event.

The statement in Cairo was released before the events and read read: "The embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions."

Romney decided to take the statement out of context and say that the entire Obama Administration and the US Government were attempting to appease the terrorists and sympathize with them, recall the statement was released before the attacks in both Egypt and Benghazi.

Romney’s Tuesday night statement read: “I'm outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi. It's disgraceful that the Obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”

Many Republicans distanced themselves from the statement as it was an outright lie.

The Guardian quoted “a very senior Republican foreign policy hand" as saying “They were just trying to score a cheap news cycle hit based on the embassy statement and now it's just completely blown up, the statement was an ‘utter disaster’".

US Ambassador Killed in Libya. Pastor Terry Jones to Blame? by John Robles

12 September 2012, 20:30  

A US film ridiculing the Prophet Mohammed has caused extreme backlash all over the Muslim world including the killing of the US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens. The largest attack has occurred in Egypt but the backlash from the film is still ongoing. Official Washington does not support the message in film and has closed its missions in Libya.

On Tuesday night the US Embassy in Benghazi Libya was attacked by angry Islamists apparently set off by a film aired in America which ridiculed the Islamic Prophet Mohammed.

According to reports during the attack an embassy employee was killed and Stevens was killed along with three other Americans when the vehicle he was riding in was attacked as it neared the embassy compound.

The attack on the embassy came shortly after an attack on the US Embassy in Cairo, where demonstrators tore down an American flag in protesting a two-hour film called "Innocence of Muslims" which was produced directed and written by one Sam Bacile, reportedly a California real estate developer and an Israeli Jew.

According to reports the film apparently, openly and with ridicule, depicts the Prophet Mohammed as a false prophet and a paedophile and shows him having sex and ordering massacres. According to media reports Mr. Bacile is unapologetic, blaming the deaths at the embassy on lax security and stating that “Islam is a cancer, period”!

The film is being promoted by Quran burning “pastor” Terry Jones and one Morris Sadek who is promoting the film on US television stations. Terry Jones, as we may recall is still actively preaching religious intolerance and inciting hatred and already has the blood of Americans and others on his hands after causing massive riots all over the Muslim world with his Quran burning stunts.

Officially the US states that they are against these kinds of provocations and that they support all religions, yet nothing has been done to these individuals who are causing real blood to be shed all over the world. Even with the bloodshed and backlash on US soldiers and US personnel overseas for some reason the US Government has not seen fit to stop these individuals from inciting religious hatred.

Many in the Muslim world and people in general see this inaction by the US Government as a sign that Official Washington supports the position of extremist anti-Muslim fanatics.

The light sentences and seemingly condoning attitude that has been taken to US and NATO Forces who repeatedly desecrate and have committed war crimes against Muslims does not help the US image in the Muslim world as well.

Another area which is causing backlash against the US is the failure of the Arab Spring and the US “missions” in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The world is tired of the drone attacks, the killing of thousands of civilians, the assassinations, the torture and the military expansion of the US.

Our condolences go out to the families of those killed in the attacks on the embassy in Benghazi, but this is yet another sign that the US needs to change its policies.

In Libya the double standards and the lack of planning by the US are more to blame than the insurgents who supported the US in their war to kill Gaddafi and who then turned their weapons on those who brought them to power.

Under Gaddafi in Libya and Mubarak in Egypt, such attacks on US Embassies would never have happened. The US’ lack of foresight and advance planning in unleashing the Arab Spring and effecting regime changes all over the region is going to have a continuing and growing backlash and instead of subjugating the people and controlling the countries in question, as the US has seen in Afghanistan, the opposite will be the case.

Again we have to condemn the violence of those who see violence as the only way to fight back, and we regret the death of yet the continued meddling by the US in countries all over the world is going to continue to cause backlash and will continue to escalate.

As many experts agree, including US based expert Alon Ben Meir, the failure of the Arab Spring was that the US mistakenly thought they could bring about “democracy” overnight in countries where the people had no idea what it means.

As the peoples of the Arab Spring countries and Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya begin to see their lives become worse, their countries continue to fall apart and the “promise” of democracy to have been a lie, they will turn to the Islamists, and if provocations continue against Muslims, the attacks will grow worse.

Maybe it is time the US thought about peace and stopped trying to dictate to the world what it should do, who it should befriend, what religion to believe in and how to run their countries?

The Voice of Russia regrets the killing in Benghazi of US Ambassador Chris Stevens and does not condone such violence.

Georgia/Baltic Countries: Winners at NATO Summit by John Robles

Georgia, the Baltic countries: big winners at NATO Summit

At the NATO summit in Chicago, the Baltic countries proved one of the most successful for NATO in its fundraising drive, with the countries announcing that they are going to increase their contributions to NATO’s coffers.

At the NATO summit in Chicago, the Baltic countries proved one of the most successful for NATO in its fundraising drive, with the countries announcing that they are going to increase their contributions to NATO’s coffers. Of course all of these billions of dollars are not being given for nothing, which is strange because in reality they are selling their souls to NATO and actually paying the devil for the “privilege”. 

In a speech at the North Atlantic Council Barack Obama spoke in golden tones about NATO’s Air Policing Mission over the Baltic States and at the summit it was called “…one of the most successful examples of NATO solidarity.” NATO solidarity? We are talking about an organization designed and born against the Soviet Union. What exactly are they so in solidarity over? As they have no real enemy, then what imagined ones? Or just advancing US interests? What does policing the airspace over the Baltic countries have to do with “solidarity”?

The NATO summit actually did some real work as a total of 13 documents were given the green light. These include the Chicago Summit Declaration and a ten year plan of enhancements called NATO Forces 2020. The members agreed to implement what they are calling “smart defense” and “connected forces” initiatives aimed at improving the use of joint military, financial and technological assets. Under the “smart defense” program come missile defense systems and the Air Policing mission over the Baltics.

The mission over the Baltics is important for Lithuania and the president of the country fawned repeatedly over NATO. According to the press service of the Lithuanian president the country had “…achieved and reaffirmed all the goals it sought to ensure the security of their country and people.” Again the question pops up, against whom? She also said, Lithuania’s membership in NATO is now real and full-fledged and that they have security guarantees that they will be protected and defended.

Georgia is another story, bending over backward and fawning over NATO. Fawning NATO spokes puppet Mihail Sakashvili could not have been more over the top in his almost groveling manner before NATO. He was ever so grateful and vocal at the mere fact that his country was put in the context of being one of three Balkan NATO aspirant countries. He said it was progress and that the aspirant countries would, as everybody knows, join NATO. Despite no real progress he said that Georgia, “…had done its homework did not like to look like the best student in the class that still could not make it to the next year... When will we graduate? We don't know yet," Saakashvili said. He fawned over Georgia being put “…into the basket of Balkan countries,” and that it was a "…geographical coup" putting Georgia into the west.

In the summit declaration, the NATO leaders continue to state that Georgia will join NATO but again no one knows when. Regardless of the fact that he is being led around with a carrot, Sakashvili continued to fawn and even lashed out at the new anti-NATO, Occupy demonstrators calling them "relics of the past" and saying that the cold war relic that is NATO was, “…as relevant now as never before.” The disconnect was not only evident from the Georgian side, NATO reciprocated.

The NATO declaration says that NATO supports reforms in Georgia, in all spheres but  as an almost admission to Sakashvili’s status as what many call a dictator, the alliance stresses, “… the importance of conducting free, fair, and inclusive elections in 2012 and 2013.” The declaration also mentions Georgia’s “full compliance” with the 2008 ceasefire agreement and Tbilisi’s non-use of force promise, and takes a stab at Russia, calling “…on Russia to reciprocate.” NATO repeated, as they did during the 2009 and 2010 summits, that Russia should; “…reverse its recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.”

The declaration states that NATO is grateful to Macedonia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Georgia, which “aspire to NATO membership.” “…for the important contributions they are making to NATO-led operations, and which demonstrate their commitment to our shared security goals,” unquote. Again the document mentions abstract ambiguous “shared goals”.

For those of you who have been dozing, this may be clearer by provocative statements preparing the way for increased hostilities with Russia, saying that for the following statement attributed to the “President” ; “The Summit repeats NATO’s focus on the military build-up in Kaliningrad and is prepared to strengthen cooperation with Russia, but that Russia is contradicting its declared aspiration to develop a strategic partnership with NATO.”

Little talk of Iran and who the global missile shield is being built against, “wink-wink”. No mention that Russia has been requesting written guarantees that the intensive militarization along its own borders by NATO is not against its own deterrent. No mention that the US has refused to provide any written guarantees whatsoever, “trust us” wink-wink. No mention that Georgia invaded South Ossetia and killed Russian citizens and peacekeepers, no mention of anything of substance really, more of a reaffirming-back-patting-feel-good-fundraiser. So get out those checkbooks and keep paying for the war and death that is NATO, after all they keep shoving their missiles in Russia’s face and keep protecting you against the phantom menaces that they keep telling you are threatening you. What else can they do as they try to stay relevant?

Have a nice day.

NATO: Blood Money, War, Global Domination by John Robles

$37 million for public relations for a 2 day event, and that is the amount that has been made public. When this amount of money is being spent one has to ask oneself some serious questions.

$37 million for public relations for a 2 day event, and that is the amount that has been made public. When this amount of money is being spent one has to ask oneself some serious questions. This amount of money is not spent for public relations when you have something positive to say or sell and in this case that completely applies.

What they are in fact trying to sell to the American public is an organization that is; no matter how you package it, a war machine. It is not one that can be called a very successful one either, nor is it one that is needed or particularly wanted by the American people. If the over-taxed American people realized that of the almost 50% of their salaries that they are paying for taxes, a large part of it and the over 65 years of debt that is being passed along to their children, is also being spent not only to fund all of the American war machines and the US military adventures all over the world, but it is also being used to provide approximately 79% of the funding for an organization that should have been disbanded over 20 years ago and one that it not even really wanted by the people it is supposed to be protecting Europe.

With the failure of Afghanistan, possibly the fact that more and more people are becoming aware of NATO’s role in supporting the illegal black market organ trade and drug traffickers in the former Yugoslavia, the ongoing provocations against the Russian Federation, a missile defense shield against an enemy (Iran) that no one really believes is a threat, waning public support for the endless “War on Terror” a euphemism for the global endless killing of  members of the Islamic faith (and anyone else for that matter) who are against US interests, and an economic crisis that sees no end in sight soon; Europeans and their countries are beginning to cut their funding for NATO.

$37 million, in the lead up to the NATO Summit in Chicago this is the amount that corporate sponsors and they are many, have publicly admitted to having gathered to promote NATO to the American public. Who are these sponsors? Well the list is long but here are a few of the smaller ones and you may be surprised: Chicago Young Republicans, the National Strategy Forum, the Arab-American Business Association, the Turkish-American Chamber of Commerce, Human Rights Watch (yes, the same one), the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater (What!?!). The big corporate sponsors include: General Dynamics, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, United Technologies, the Atlantic Richfield Company, Xerox, IBM, Security Pacific Bank and State Farm Insurance.   

With an annual budget of what some sources calculate at being close to half a trillion dollars ($500 billion) from the US side approximately $400 billion, this is a hugely profitable cash cow for all of these companies, never mind that their business is death and destruction… That is also good because there are slew of American companies waiting in the shadows to make billions on reconstruction and lucrative business deals on the new “democracies’ they install.

And that it what it is all about after all promoting the US position. Advancing US global domination, securing unfettered access to the world’s oil and natural resources, resources needed desperately by a country that consumes more than 48% of the world’s total.

In a recent statement the Honorable R. Nicholas Burns former U.S. Ambassador to NATO, among his other titles, said the following; “NATO is facing new challenges and opportunities in a rapidly changing global economic, political, and security environment.” and quoted former U.S. Secretary of D0efense Robert Gates who in 2011 warned of “a dim, if not dismal future” for the transatlantic alliance, unless member states strengthened their cohesion, coordination, and commitments.     

What are the new challenges that he is talking about? Well in reality, the organization is truly irrelevant as it was originally set up. The changing economics he speaks about are what we have talked about already, Europe is in a crisis and the funding for NATO is not what it used to be, although after 9-11 it has risen to above cold war levels. Europe does not want to pay for an organization that is clearly failing in Afghanistan and other theaters.

Politically speaking NATO should have been disbanded when the Warsaw Pact was dissolved because that was its chief rival and as for security this is also relevant. The new challenges and opportunities exist more for the US than for NATO as the US seeks to increasingly use NATO to advance its interests, in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, the Arctic, Africa, the former Soviet area and now, if one follows NATO with even a passing interest, it is clear the US wishes to use its proxy to advance its interests in the Asia – Pacific region and in fact anywhere elsewhere there is oil in particular or other resources.

NATO plans to expand globally and is well on its way to doing so. It vision of a single world military organization able to dominate any country or region in the world and strike any target in the world within minutes is close to becoming a reality. NATO does not answer to the UN nor does it answer to any international organization. It is not interested in peace or equilibrium in the world. NATO exists to promote and advance the wishes, the policies, the politics, the interests and the position of a the US and its subservient allies. It is a US tool of terror, death and destruction and it must be stopped.

Have  a nice day!

NATO and US vs Protestors by John Robles

NATO and US vs Protestors

Steadfastly continuing the (perhaps not so) new American tradition of stripping the American people of their freedoms, oppressing them

Steadfastly continuing the (perhaps not so) new American tradition of stripping the American people of their freedoms, oppressing them and if need be eliminating them altogether, all in the name of safety, security and in order to save them from the evil terrorists hiding behind every tree, those evil Russians, the Iranians and North Korea, Chicago prepares to host a showcase summit for the world’s top war machine, an organization that will soon completely dominate and control the entire planet if the architects behind it have their way.   

Do the people in Chicago want the summit? No, but it doesn’t really matter, those in power want it. In the vernacular we will call them the 1%, they are also known as the elites, the globalists and what have you. It doesn’t really matter what you call them, they are those born to privilege who have little value for human life (other than their own of course) and who expertly manipulate and feed off the pain, grief, work, blood, sweat and tears of the common people.

Shamelessly and blood thirstingly profiteering from the death and destruction of what has become non-stop global war, from the illegal narcotics trade that decimates the poor and what they consider to be undesirable segments of the world’s population, and even from the illegal black market trade in human organs, no matter what stage of the bloody circle you focus on they (the 1%) are there, to benefit and profit. Which is why, in a nutshell, the 99% of us must protest, and stand up, before it is my eye they want, or your kidney, or your baby sister’s liver or they decide we are completely expendable without even bothering to harvest our organs.

Lest I digress, let’s look at what they (the 1%) have planned for the peaceful demonstrators who already have to must up huge levels of bravery, and in the words of one Occupier I spoke to; “…be ready to sacrifice my body… for the cause.” But before we do let’s look at who all of these preparations are being planned for.

In case you have been on a deserted island, in another galaxy, or in a country that just doesn’t give a toot about what is going on in the US and know nothing about the Occupy movement let me fill you in real quick. 

For decades the US has been on the verge of a complete and total societal breakdown. It had been repressed minorities, immigrants and the poor who have classically gotten poorer as the rich have gotten richer. These segments of the US population were growing more and more difficult to control and events were needed to crack down. 9-11 was that event. Then the election of a black president kept most of the minorities placated. So the elites, once again emboldened decided to decimate the middle class, classically made up of white Americans, and this gave birth to the Occupy Movement.

The Occupiers are not the radical Black Panthers or the hippies of the ‘60s. They are peaceful, educated and even a little nerdy and are becoming more and more organized and focused. Their addition to number of discontent masses is dangerous for the elites. Together they may now have the power to cut off the profiteering feeding frenzy that the elites have been on for decades.

How will these educated, discontent, and peaceful groups be dealt with? Well, with what the US Government does best, maximum force and violence and the stripping of civil and human rights! Sorry for the rhetorical question. How dare them protest the killing by the elites and their world domination! There will also be an unprecedented campaign of intimidation and “fear mongering” in order to keep the number of protesters to a minimum.

In a preview, the Chicago Police Department, one of the few if not the only police department in the US and perhaps the world as well, to have had to call a moratorium on torture, has began arresting these malcontents. Yesiree Bob, they must be stopped.

So far more than 20 people have been arrested with 3 people who were stopped and intimidated by police being made examples of. Last week Jared Chase, Brent Beterly, and Brian Jacob Church who arrived in Chicago from Florida, were surrounded by several police squad cars and detained for no apparent reason. They were questioned about why they were in Chicago and what they planned to do during the NATO summit. They happened to record the encounter and posted an edited version on YouTube and then the entire video on the internet.

On Wednesday night police raided several homes and apartments and arrested 9 activists. Police broke down doors with guns drawn and searched residences without a warrant or consent. After holding them without charges for 48 hours the police released 6 of those arrested and filed the most serious charges possible against the 3 innocent Occupy activists from Florida, including possession of explosives or incendiary devices, material support for terrorism, and conspiracy. A gas can and some empty bottles in the car led to the explosives charges.

In an official statement released to the press the National Lawyers Guild, an official US wide organization for lawyers, Sarah Gelsomino with the NLG and the People's Law Office, said the following: "The National Lawyers Guild deplores the charges against Occupy activists in the strongest degree. It's outrageous for the city to apply terrorism charges when it's the police who have been terrorizing activists and threatening their right to protest."

The media is also being controlled, in a document titled NOT INTENDED FOR GENERAL DISTRIBUTION. FOR MEDIA GUIDANCE ONLY, the Chicago Police Department has set out rules for the press, targeting independent  journalists in particular with passages such as the following: ”...media access generally will be the same as public access. Credentials will, however, allow media personnel access to media-only areas. No “cutting” in and out of police lines will be permitted, or “going up against their backs.” Those who follow protesters onto private property to document their actions are also will be subject to arrest if laws are broken.” ”Any member of the media who is arrested will have to go through the same booking process as anyone else. Release of equipment depends on what part the equipment played in the events that led to the arrest.”

An Chicago’s mayor, Rahm Emanuel has used the event to install permanent changes which strip away even more rights and freedoms from the people. The new measures include:

1.   Authorization for the Mayor to purchase and deploy surveillance cameras throughout the city, without any type of oversight.

2.   Restrictions on public activity, including amplified sound and morning gatherings.

3.   Restrictions on parades, including the requirement to purchase an insurance policy worth $1 million and to register every sign or banner that will be held by more than one person.

4.   The power to deputize many different types of law enforcement personnel other than the Chicago Police Department.

Protests have been drawn from the ACLU, Amnesty International, the Occupy Movement.

The summit has also been designated a National Special Security Event (NSSE) by the Department of Homeland Security thus passing final authority over law enforcement to the US Secret Service.

The Chicago police are armed to the teeth and have even ordered special armor for the horses of the mounted police.

According to Occupy Chicago, they are; “… organizing a week of actions highlighting the violence and oppression of NATO, and calling for the organization to be disbanded.”

Let’s hope for restraint and cool heads from all sides.
