US Propaganda Machine Now in Overdrive to Fight Russia in Syria

Over the weekend the Western press is blasting Russia and Syria for alleged war crimes in their assault on the terrorist controlled part of East Aleppo. A typical headline from The Washington Post reads “US accuses Russia of ‘barbarism’ and war crimes in Syria.” Meanwhile, the Long War Journal declares “US hits another Islamic State chemical weapons facility in Iraq.” UK’s foreign minister Boris Johnson is crying foul that Russia should be investigated for war crimes. The Western media of course is now in high gear fanning the flames, charging Putin and Assad with war crimes due to apparent heavy civilian losses. Reports range up to 139 casualties this weekend alone. If readers take these latest proclamations at face value, they would automatically conclude that America and its Western vassals are the true holier-than-thou good guys in the Middle East fighting the bad terrorists Islamic State while Russia and Syria as the US demonized enemies are the ultimate bad guys mercilessly committing crimes against humanity.
Let’s first address the report that the US bombed a terrorist chemical weapons factory in Iraq. Hands down the US is the single biggest perpetrator ever using chemical warfare in crimes against humanity. Between dropping two atomic bombs when Truman knew that a defeated Japan was already wanting to surrender to the unprecedented tonnage of napalm bombs used over Tokyo in the final year of World War II (in just a two day period in March 1945, the US dropped over 1500 tons of napalm bombs), to the even more napalm used at 125 tons a day for three years less than a decade later to kill upwards of 5 million Koreans during America’s first undeclared war, followed by 400,000 more tons of napalm and  20 million gallons of Agent Orange dumped during the Vietnam War that eliminated up to 3.4 million South East Asians (Vietnam Red Cross estimated 4.8 million deaths from Agent Orange alone), the US has a very long history of flagrantly violating international law banning chemical and biological warfare ever since the 1925 Geneva Protocol to its 1993 renewal. Not that a law ever stopped US exceptionalism from wrongdoing, those wars were just the beginning.
Depleted uranium left behind in both Afghanistan and Iraq’s both Gulf War rubble and then the white phosphorus poured down on Fallujah residents in Iraq in the last decade, not to mention in 1988 giving Saddam Hussein made-in-America mustard gas that Washington knew would be used on his own Kurdish citizens and Iranian troops for which US intelligence helped deliver target coordinates, America has used chemicals that have helped kill millions during every single decade since the 1940’s. That’s seven decades in a row! On top of that, the US regularly uses internationally outlawed tear gas on its own citizens who exercise First Amendment rights to protest. America’s militarized police illegally unleash chemicals and batons as counterterrorism weapons against peaceful assembly to break up protests like the Occupy movement. No other nation comes close, although at least two Empire buddies also use US-made chemical weapons. Israel deployed white phosphorus on Palestinians in Gaza and Saudis are now using the same US supplied skin-melting WMD on victims in Yemen. Birds of a feather…
Then there was the sarin gas chemical weapon launched on the Damascus suburb back in August 2013 by US-supported terrorists that Obama wrongly blamed Assad for in his false flag attempt to first commit airstrikes on Syria. Met with strong opposition worldwide, among them 91% of Americans and UK parliament along with a last minute brokered deal by Putin allowing Assad to turn in his chemical weapons, Obama was successfully thwarted from potentially starting WWIII the first time around. Still possessing among the largest stockpiles of outlawed chemical weapons and by far history’s worst offender using them, a claim that the US recently destroyed a chemical bomb factory in Iraq hardly turns Empire into a good guy. The same can be said when every now and then the US kills a high profile terrorist, making a big deal as if it covers up the fact that Obama and his neocons are in bed with terrorists.
Under totalitarian regimes information and disinformation are always used as propaganda fodder in a war to control and brainwash people’s minds. Inevitably history teaches us that the truth becomes every tyrannical government’s enemy and lies are the standard weapon deployed to justify and cover up actual evil. In this war in Syria and broader Middle East, if the truth be known, US led coalition forces are the true bad guys protecting their fellow bad guys as their proxy war terrorist allies that the US itself created decades ago while at the same time combating the only true fighters against terrorism in Syria - Russia, Syria, Iran, Lebanese Hezbollah and Syrian Kurds.
Washington neocons never fail to utilize their hypocritical standby attempting to feebly take the moral high ground always justifying their overt military aggression in the name of humanitarianism. Without any evidence to back up her completely bogus claim, the US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power keeps accusing Putin as the perpetrator of what turns out most likely to be another US staged terrorist rocket attack that a week ago destroyed 18 of 31 trucks killing 21 in a UN aid convoy, thus resulting in suspension of relief efforts to the people of Aleppo. While the Russian military spokesman maintained in addition to neither Russia nor Syria standing to gain from attacking the convoy, the damage to the vehicles and remnant traces appear to be from shells fired by tanks, cannons or RPG’s that al-Nusra Front (deceptively renamed last month Jabhat Fateh al-Sham) is equipped with and was visibly active in the area where the attack occurred. Even the UN retracted earlier statements and moved away from placing the blame on Russia. In any event, the US and its fellow terrorists would obviously benefit the most by blaming Russia. And both Empire and terrorists have the means to carry out such an attack.
In a Sunday emergency session of the UN Security Council, Power led the flimsy high and mighty charge:
Instead of pursuing peace, Russia and Assad make war. What Russia is sponsoring and doing is not counterterrorism. It is barbarism.
It was the United States that pressured and insisted the UN deliver aid relief against both Syria and Russia’s warnings that insisted the terrorist controlled road to Aleppo was unsafe for passage. But the neocons had an agenda to pressure the UN to get clearance for the convoy delivery. It’s now come to light that a privately funded NGO security firm owned by a former British military intelligence officer (not unlike Blackwater) hires fake first responders that pose as Syria Civil Defense covertly operating with Western security forces most often in terrorist embedded areas. They’re called the white hats and most likely last week worked in cahoots with the local terrorists to pull off the false flag so that Empire could conveniently blame Putin for the so called airstrikes out of some twisted revenge that only diabolical forces of the US crime cabal could dream up. Coldhearted Russia and Syria would be blamed for not permitting humanitarian assistance to the long suffering residents of Aleppo. Washington and hired white hat first responders would insist that Russian bombers flew overhead for hours blowing up the convoy at the loading docks while food supplies were being lifted onto trucks 15 miles from Aleppo, thus also “proving” that Putin and Assad had no interest in either the September 9th ceasefire nor peace.
The other part of the now shattered US-Russian brokered peace proposal was that the US would entice or coerce its infamously labeled “moderate rebels” to uphold the ceasefire agreement while physically separating themselves from so called “bad terrorists,” ISIS/al Qaeda/al-Nusra Front. Instead the Syrian government stated that the US backed moderate opposition groups violated the agreement over 300 times from September 12th to the 19th, and at no time did the US follow through on its preposterous role to impose its backed rebels leave Aleppo in order to distance themselves from the terrorist groups ISIS/al Qaeda/Jabhat Fatah al Sham entrenched in the besieged city of Aleppo. It was a sham from the start and Defense Secretary Carter and his generals knew the ceasefire would expose their pretend game. Peace was never part of the US agenda as anyone who knows anything realized long ago that there’s no difference between so called moderates and ISIS except that the moderates are completely dependent in close alignment with the big boys ISIS/al-Qaeda/al-Nusra.
Obviously the most damning evidence indicating that the US never intended to honor the ceasefire agreement came when US led coalition jets attacked a Syrian Arab Army position near Deir Ezzor airbase on Saturday September 17th that the US feebly claimed was “an accident.” The Russians had to call the Americans twice for the hour long airstrikes to finally be called off. The incident that killed at least 70 Syrian soldiers and wounded over 100 allowed sufficient air cover for nearby ISIS terrorists to wage a successful assault within seven minutes after the airstrikes began to advance forward to overtake the attacked Syrian high ground. The Damasus government intercepted a conversation between the US military and ISIS just prior to the airstrikes, confirming they were premeditated, well-coordinated, and deliberate acts of aggression that violate international law and more than anything else expose US Empire’s true intentions all along in the Middle East to protect its terrorist ally.
The UN convoy attack two days later was mere camouflage in a vain attempt to disguise US criminality for the Saturday airstrikes involving US, Australian and UK warplanes. Because the Syrian government forces were clearly winning the war against the terrorists and closing in on the final ISIS strongholds of East Aleppo and Raqqa, the Washington neocons were deceitfully using the ceasefire and months of Vienna talks as opportunity for its proxy terrorist allies to regroup and then launch its latest volley in the propaganda war to smear both Assad and Putin with this most recent barrage of verbal attacks. That’s what nations do just before all-out war, they demonize to dehumanize the enemy as propagandized mental prepping for war. Right now Washington is conditioning Americans for world war against Russia.
Still another hugely significant development from last Tuesday receiving a Western media blackout again proves that the US Empire and its Western puppets are behind the terrorists. A Russian missile attack destroyed a secret field operations room in west Aleppo province just three days after the Syrian soldiers were killed in the US airstrike. Three caliber missiles from Russian warships were responsible for killing 30 military intelligence officers from the US, Israel, UK, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, confirming  that the US Empire is leading all terrorist operations in Aleppo province.
Once the US shifted its game changing strategy to “accidentally on purpose” murder Syrian soldiers, Putin and Assad have been forced to change their rules of engagement, now taking out any forces deemed hostile to the Damascus government, regardless of what nation they belong to. The US airstrike and Russian missile attack have ratcheted up hostilities to extreme risk that war breaking out between the US and Russia appears inevitable. The Russians now realize that the US can never be trusted, that Washington neocons never had any intention of making peace in Syria, and that using the Vienna talks as a smokescreen only enabled terrorist factions to regroup and subsequently prolong Empire’s regime change war by securing a safe haven. As such, the Russian-Syrian led coalition is now resolved to unilaterally finishing off the terrorists themselves by over the weekend stepping up their air campaign on terrorist controlled East Aleppo. Where there is no will to achieve peace through diplomacy, as the double-crossing US has demonstrated, Russia, Syria and Iran have concluded that the only solution is through achieving a military victory against all the terrorists as well as their Western sponsors in Syria.
Similarly, Iraq also painfully knows that the US has only led a fake war against ISIS, often witnessing US airdropping arms, ammo and supplies to the terrorists. So without Washington’s help, the Iraqi militia, Iraqi Kurds and Iranian military are set to take back Mosul the second largest city as the final terrorist stronghold in that nation as well. Because the real antiterrorist forces have made so much progress this last year combating the world’s largest terrorist organization that US Empire created and still obviously supports, that’s why the US and its vassals are resorting to such desperate measures both on the battlefield as well as the information war to keep both their terrorists and its war on terror alive.
In reaction to the warmongering rhetoric that Washington and its European vassals keep echoing about “Russian war crimes,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the West’s remarks are highly “unacceptable,” adding the truth that terrorists were misusing the ceasefire to “regroup, to replenish their arsenals and for obvious preparations to carry out attacks.” Hence, the double down on artillery and airstrikes before Syrian ground forces move in to the embattled, jihad held areas of Aleppo.
Leave it to spot-on Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova on her Facebook page to rebuke Samantha Power’s hypocritical grandstanding:
Historically speaking… a barbarian is someone not belonging to an empire, and we have only one of those today. As for the imagery… the world has seen nothing more barbaric in modern history than Iraq and Libya done the Washington way.

The geopolitics chessboard game that US Empire is so recklessly playing with partner-in-crime Turkey is nothing short of full implementation of their Plan A (at one time masqueraded as Plan B if the so called peace process breaks down, which the US had obviously been planning for all along), to establish a permanent terrorist stronghold with a no fly zone over eastern Syria in order for the terrorists the US and Turkey have been backing for years to continue fighting to finish off Assad. Of course invading Syria gives Erdogan opportunity to fight Kurds to ensure they don’t secure northern Syria for themselves. After Erdogan shot down the Russian jet last November, it was impossible to invade Syria then without triggering an all-out war with Russia. So what does the subversive evildoing duo of NATO conspirators do? The US and Erdogan collude in staging an “unsuccessful” coup in July that prompts Erdogan to grovel in Moscow licking Putin’s bootstraps that then effectively sets the stage for Turkey to betray Russia a second time by suddenly invading northern Syria last month in an obvious ploy to finally secure their long plotted turf while restoring their much needed terrorist supply line.
It was recently reported that US Special Forces are stationed at seven different military bases in Northern Syria. With both Turkish and American boots now on the ground firmly and illegally entrenched on Syrian soil, the uninvited enemy invaders have finally positioned themselves to rescue their longtime sweetheart investment called global terrorism, force “balkanization” of Syria into weakened partitions while still seeking regime change against demonized enemies Assad and Putin as the warmup prelude to WWIII. Hence, this week’s over-the-top smear campaign by US to portray Syria and Russia as coldblooded monsters slaughtering poor Aleppo war victims, sabotaging all efforts at humanitarian aid while willfully refusing to comply with the peace proposal they signed and thereby torpedoing the peace process. This ongoing propaganda blitz is designed to leave the West no other choice but to stop the “evildoers” once and for all, thus forcing an unavoidable global war confrontation.
The history of the Middle East since 9/11 makes plain and clear who the actual good guys and who the real bad guys are, and not surprisingly for anyone half awake, it’s the opposite of how the Western propaganda machine is feeding the global masses its 24/7 lies as the primary driving force leading humanity on the fast track to World War III. 2000’s Project for a New American Century (PNAC) called for a “new Pearl Harbor” that the Cheney-Rumsfeld-Wolfowitz neocons materialized a year later as their 9/11 inside job, based on bogus lies about WMD’s and ties to terrorism granting license to illegally invade, indefinitely preoccupy and lay to waste both Afghanistan and Iraq as well as NATO waging an illegal air war against Libya, sending in more proxy terrorists to brutally murder Qaddafi who was leading Africa toward independence and prosperity away from US imperialism and its petrodollar chokehold.
Murdering over 4 million Muslims in the process, US Empire with all its bloody wars has also continued employing its terrorist mercenaries to carry out state sponsored terrorism with not only America’s 9/11, but 3/3 Madrid, 7/7 London, last year’s January Hebdo and November’s Friday the 13th Paris attacks and dozens of other smaller scaled terrorist attacks like this year’s Brussels airport and Bastille Day Nice attacks and on and on ad nauseam they go, all diabolically perpetrated by Empire’s CIA/Mossad/MI6 handlers using jihadist patsies in a divide and conquer war against Islam and people everywhere.
Then came the CIA-induced Arab Spring uprising starting in 2011 as an extension of the neocon regime change operation taking down 7 sovereign nations in five years that General Wesley Clark leaked in 2007. With five down and still two to go on their unfinished hit list - Syria and Iran, the juggernaut to get to the grand prize Iran of course remains Assad’s Syria. The fact that Assad rejected Empire’s 2009 Qatar-Turkey-Syria gas pipeline that would effectively crush Russia’s hold on European gas export sealed Assad’s fate as a forever target in Empire crosshairs. Hence, the propaganda making him an evil despot, but like Putin a saint compared to the demonic evil in control of the Washington warmongers. With upwards of 400,000 Syrians killed in the near half dozen year war that US caused, and over 11 million people displaced constituting half of Syria’s prewar population, it is the US Empire that is truly the most brutally barbaric enemy to the entire world. Up to 30 million humans and counting have been murdered around the globe in the 37 nations that the US has attacked just since WWII. And with all its lies and disinformation, the United States is bent on igniting a global war that will likely dwarf in both death toll and human tragedy the two world wars from the last century combined. So let’s not be fooled by the sleight of hand deadly deceptions spun by the ruling elite’s puppet show from Washington that’s currently waging a genocidal war against all of humanity.

The Anatomy of the US Assault on Syria’s Peace Process and War with Russia

Events in Syria over this last week have thoroughly shattered the Russian-US ceasefire agreement reached in Vienna on September 9th between US Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov. Last Saturday the US led coalition comprised of US, Australian and UK fighter jets (2 F-16’s and 2 A-10's) delivered four airstrikes on Syrian Arab Army troops near the ISIS besieged Syrian airbase in Deir ez-Zor, for the first time killing Syrian soldiers (estimates of 62-83 dead and up to 120 injured). Within 7 minutes after the Syrian troops occupying the high ground overlooking the nearby airbase were attacked, Islamic State militants were opportunistically able to launch an assault and successfully seized control of that strategic high ground. Several hours later the Syrian Arab Army eventually was able to push back to retake its lost position.
But Saturday’s rapidly unfolding events of the airstrike followed so closely by the on-the-ground terrorist attack unquestionably points to air to ground coordination between US and ISIS that strongly indicates the US led airstrike was premeditated and designed to completely undermine the already tenuous ceasefire. This incident alone decisively kills any prospect for peace that would finally end the five and a half year war that’s killed more than 300,000 Syrian people and displaced over 11 million more.
The second critical incident that placed the final nail in the peace prospect coffin was Monday’s attack on a UN and Syrian Red Crescent Society convoy delivering much needed humanitarian aid to residents of Syria’s second largest city Aleppo, still largely occupied by ISIS and al-Nusra Front forces but for months under siege by the advancing Syrian army. The US immediately began blaming both Russia and Syria as an “act of revenge” for Saturday’s airstrike that the US feebly claims was an accident. A closer analysis of these two very much related, highly disturbing acts of violence speaks volumes on just how low the imperialistic US Empire is willing to stoop to sabotage peace in the war ravaged nation that’s killed or displaced more than half the Syrian population.   
America’s long history of breaking treaties starting with the Native Americans centuries ago that resulted in their subsequent genocide, right up to this week’s turn of events in Syria confirm that the US Empire of Chaos and Destruction can never be trusted. After the September ceasefire went into effect reconfirming February’s cessation of hostilities agreement, in addition the US finally agreed to enforce calls for its US-backed “moderate” rebel militia groups to separate from both ISIS and al-Nusra Front (recently renamed Jabhat Fatah al-Sham) terrorists. However, with the US airstrike the Syrian government declared that the truce was over after stating that from September 12-19 the US backed moderate rebels violated the ceasefire over 300 times.
Additionally, the US made no effort to entice or coerce its “good terrorists” to leave the bad terrorists ISIS/al Qaeda behind in Aleppo despite a Russian-Syrian arrangement to allow them free safe passage out of the ravaged city. Of course the moderate backed rebels are joined at the hip dependent and closely linked to ISIS/al-Nusra/al Qaida despite Washington’s pretense that there’s any real difference. In fact, just to prove the point, a group of militants affiliated with US supported Free Syrian Army chased truckloads of US Special Forces out of a northern Syrian town waving automatic weapons and yelling:
The collaborators of America are dogs and pigs! They wage a crusader war against Syria and Islam!
Had the neocons not sabotaged it, a successful weeklong ceasefire would have set the stage for the much talked about Joint Implementation Group to begin on Wednesday September 21st whereby the US and Russia would ostensibly work together in joint partnership to share intelligence, on-the-ground tactical information and military operations to eradicate the Islamic State and al-Nusra terrorists from Syria once and for all to finally bring about peace to the decimated nation.
But with a global policy of destabilization and unwilling to tolerate cessation of hostilities and peace in Syria, the hardcore Washington warmongers comprised of Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, his “endless warring” Pentagon and an alleged faction within the State Department remain determined to ignite the short fuse to World War III. In order to completely unravel months of State Department talks in Vienna as its convenient smokescreen, the US committing the lethal airstrike on Saturday directly on the Syrian Arab Army was by no means an accident in its latest escalation of war against both Syria and Russia as well as world peace.
Back in 2011 CIA-trained paid agitators to begin their bogus protest against the Assad government as part of the CIA’s “Arab spring uprising” that provided the pretext for the costly, protracted US engineered war. All along the US hardline approach never ceased demanding an Assad regime change, a balkanized, divided Syria into three weakened nation-state puppets (retaining the northeastern sector as a permanent safe haven for US proxy war allied terrorists ISIS and al-Nusra) and a perpetual failed state like Empire of Chaos and Destruction has already established in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. A weakened Damascus puppet installed government would then allow the longstanding scheme of a proposed 2009 Qatar-Syria-Turkey pipeline to replace Europe’s gas dependence on Russia, consolidating Western elite’s power In the Middle East. But Assad’s loyalty to Russia and Iran made him a marked man targeted by a vengeful US Empire.
Now that US has defied international law by sending ground troops to Syria and last month gave NATO ally Turkey the go-ahead to unlawfully invade northern Syria to reestablish its terrorist supply lifeline and an excuse to kill the Syrian Kurds (YPG) that have been formidable antiterrorist fighters previously supported by the US, the US has now hung its former Kurdish ally out to dry. The US and Turkey are once again hard at work carving out their Plan B that's actually been their Plan A all along - a safe haven for terrorists in eastern Syria.
After the US failed coup attempt in Turkey resulted in Erdogan’s ass kissing trip to Moscow to make up with Putin, nervous of no longer having Turkey as a strategic pro-terrorist partner and use of its airbases and nuke stockpile, the US decided to do an about face and betray the Kurds while Erdogan’s playing both Obama and Putin, who’s been double-crossed twice by Erdogan and now with the broken truce once by Obama. After shooting down the Russian jet last November, Erdogan’s back with the US supporting the terrorists inside Syria. What’s most surprising is that grandmaster strategist Putin appears to have been hoodwinked by both Turkey and the US after Saturday’s airstrike. Those many months of Vienna negotiations with Kerry and Lavrov were simply to bide time for the US backed terrorists to regroup. The treacherous cloak and dagger tactics of sleazy US-NATO players carving up the geopolitical chessboard know no loyalties. Consequently, a pissed off Putin has just changed the rules of engagement and from now on will shoot down any aircraft threatening Syrian forces.
In September 2013 Obama was forced to give up his rush to WWIII after he falsely blamed Assad for the Obama supported rebels’ false flag chemical attack on Ghouta near Damascus. His demand for airstrikes on Syria were then thwarted by Putin who brokered a deal for Assad to turn in his chemical weapons cache. Using the excuse of going after ISIS after the terrorists invaded Syria in June 2014, in fact ever since Obama has been arming and supplying the terrorists, taking full advantage of the opportunity to protect ISIS while setting out to destroy Syria’s infrastructure by bombing oil refineries and food storage silos. That is until a year ago when Putin had seen enough of Obama’s fake war on terrorism and, responding to Assad’s request for help, Russia proceeded to bomb the ISIS stolen oil caravans heading straight to Turkey for black market sale in Erdogan’s family business. With US Special Forces now on the ground and Empire claws in Syria never deeper, Obama continues air raids on Syria’s economic facilities and vital infrastructure. Consequently, the Syrian foreign minister just sent a formal letter to the UN Security Council making a strong case for the US coalition to pay financial reparations for  the rampant destruction bent on turning Syria into another dead zone wasteland. Partner-in-crime House of Saud is committing the same crimes against humanity in Yemen.
The fact is the US has a long history of supporting terrorists and sponsoring terrorism. Washington’s warmongering treasonous megalomaniacs have always supported terrorism as al Qaeda/ISIS/al-Nusra creators, financiers, trainers, suppliers, using them continuously as their not-so-secret hired thug allies for the last four straight decades in numerous proxy wars, from the late 1970’s Afghanistan war against the Soviets to Serbia, Kosovo and Bosnia in the 1990’s, as terrorist patsies on 9/11 and every other major terrorist attack in both US and Europe as well as in nonstop wars in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan, Chechnya spreading to sub-Saharan Africa and all the way to the Far East.
The US crime cabal government created the Islamic terrorists, along with its crime cabal allies NATO, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia (having given birth to their Wahhabi brand of terrorism) and Gulf State monarchies like Qatar. So the diabolical true intentions of Obama and his neocon crazies have once again been exposed, showing their true treasonous colors in support of the terrorists fighting against Assad, Putin, China and Iran, ultimately bent on their West versus East, end of world showdown called the Third (and perhaps final) World War.  
The attack on the UN aid convoy reportedly killing four medical workers and 16 others would not benefit Syria or Russia in the least but only US Empire’s subversive interests to further undermine the peace process and legitimize its relentless demonization of Putin and Assad as designated US enemies. It was the US that was pushing for the humanitarian aid to be delivered to Aleppo not because it gives a shit about the impoverished city residents, but simply as a political ploy to create propagandized theater in order to manipulatively implicate Russia and Syria as vengefully stopping humanitarian assistance to long suffering people in need. The fact is both Syria and Russia indicated to the UN that the aid delivery route into ISIS controlled Aleppo province was not secured yet and advised against the decision.
But as standard practice since the UN’s 1945 Rockefeller founding, the UN has always been used by Empire as a political tool and cover subsidizing US war crimes. This latest episode is no different as Washington prevailed in manipulating both the UN and Syria to reluctantly greenlight food aid delivery against both Syria and Russia’s prior warnings. It would make no sense for Syria to approve the aid convoy and then destroy it. Also even a States Department spokesperson stated no Syrian planes were in the area. By process of elimination, the US is insisting that two Russian SU-24 warplanes did the dirty deed which Moscow vehemently denies. Of course this prompted the UN to suspend all further aid indefinitely.
Meanwhile, Russia has released information that a video showing a terrorist pickup truck towing a large caliber mortar was following the aid convoy and then at some point veered away from the caravan shortly prior to the rocket blasts that destroyed 18 of the 31 trucks while they were unloading food. This added piece supports the plausibility that it was not an airstrike at all but probable ground-fired rockets that were most likely launched by US-backed insurgents. A Russian defense ministry statement further added:
There are no craters and the exterior of the vehicles do not have the kind of damage consistent with blasts caused by bombs dropped from the air.
To further support evidence that it was the United States carrying out another egregious false flag, an American predator drone was spotted flying above the convoy. Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said:
On the evening of September 19, in that specific region, a drone belonging to the international coalition, which had taken off from the Incirlik Airbase in Turkey, was flying at a height of 3,600 meters and traveling at around 200 kilometers per hour. The object was in the area around the town of Urm Al-Kubra, where the convoy was a few minutes before it caught fire. It left after about 30 minutes.
In a separate but related incident on Tuesday night near Aleppo an alleged airstrike struck and demolished a medical center, killing four medics employed by the Union of Medical Care and Relief Organizations, a French humanitarian relief agency that works in terrorist controlled Aleppo. This seems nothing less than Empire overkill drama to make sure the Russians get blamed.
Both the Pentagon generals and their boss Carter strongly oppose the ceasefire, all the while engaging in a blame game against Russia to justify war against the nuclear power. Bordering on insubordination, in so many words they have publicly stated that they’d practically refuse to obey their commander-in-chief’s order to be forced to cooperate closely with Russia in Syria. So really Washington’s neocons possess both the means and the motive to use the convoy attack as their false flag agenda to totally obliterate any chance for peace in Syria. It may also well be a case of staged application of “good cop versus bad cop” game strategy where Kerry and Obama appear to be on board with Russia on the brokered ceasefire when in fact they secretly support the warmongering bad cops Carter and his top brass.
To add more incriminating evidence that the US-NATO-Israel axis-of-evil is acting in synch together in conspired coordinated aggression to willfully end any chance of peace in Syria, Israeli airstrikes targeting Syrian Arab Army troops stationed in the Golan Heights near the Syrian-Israeli border are also being fired upon by Israeli jets. Even a Knesset member from the Golan Heights area corroborated that Israel is working directly with al Qaeda terrorists to kill Syrian government troops. Of course the Jewish State is infamous for supporting terrorists in the Middle East. Bebe’s photo-ops displaying his best bedside manner at Golan Heights hospitals caring for wounded terrorists are well documented. The US and Israel have long been partners-in-crime, be it on 9/11 as well as the Greater Israel Project that’s consistently deployed a divide and conquer strategy to keep Arabs weak by always pitting them to fight against each other in order to mask the true US-Israeli imperialistic agenda to redraw geographic borders by stealing Arab land from not only Palestine but the entire Middle East.
Yet more incriminating circumstantial evidence that it’s no accident is that on the very same day the US coalition was “accidentally” murdering Syrian soldiers, yet another alleged Muslim patsy in the United States was allegedly busy setting off a “wag the bomb” blast in a New York City neighborhood injuring 29 as a convenient attention grabber stealing all headlines away from the US coalition “accident” in Syria. With a virtual MSM blackout of any airstrike coverage, America was instead bombarded by 24/7 NYC bomb coverage as the latest domestic false flag ensuring that all US media airwaves were completely monopolized to drown out Empire’s war crimes in Syria. Then another mysterious bomb episode part 2 in nearby Elizabeth, NJ on Monday suddenly comes along on the exact same day as the convoy explosion to ensure that the fire at home keeps burning red hot. Coincidence? I don’t think so. It’s just the latest in a never-ending pattern that the diabolical powers-that-shouldn’t-be are notorious for - timing false flag events to cover up premeditated US criminal activity being executed elsewhere in the world.
Thus in all likelihood, this latest Syrian development blowing up efforts to provide humanitarian aid is yet another instance where US Empire has once again deceitfully imposed its brutish will in order to orchestrate a preplanned false flag convoy attack blaming Russia after the US preplanned airstrike on Syrian soldiers.
Increasingly in its desperate aggressions to spark world war, on a near weekly basis the US crime cabal government is now regularly engaging in staged false flag operations, conveniently blaming its villainous enemies in order to cover-up and justify its own heinously criminal actions around the world, and nowhere is it more evident this week than in war battered Syria. Before World War III starts, we citizens need to bring justice by unveiling the diabolical truth that the US traitors in Washington are responsible for trying to destroy our planet and everything on it.

Tension on the Korean Peninsula: US Empire Is the Real Enemy of Both Koreas

Warring hotspots all over the world are flaring up in 2016 in what amounts to preparation for World War III between the military forces of the US led Western Empire against the forces of the Eastern axis led by Russia and China joined by Iran and North Korea. Let’s be clear - the globalists are the puppet masters behind the Western forces intentionally provoking catastrophic world war. We live in a time when the earth’s ruling elite has willfully created this foreboding, seemingly suicidal endgame scenario, using US Empire to prod, orchestrate, and push the world into two enemy camps in a West vs. East showdown. Global war timed with the inevitable collapse of their Ponzi-schemed global economy will open the floodgate to unbridled tyranny brought on by their long plotted one world government. The systematic destruction of the West and its First World affluence is but part of this sinister scheme to destabilize every region on the planet in order to engineer such dire, devastating conditions that the surviving global masses will automatically seek refuge and protection from deep state’s one world governance as their only means of staying alive. Meticulously creating the conditions most ripe for war, ecological degradation leading to disease and famine ensures that the elite’s eugenics depopulation agenda will leave a slave class of a half to one billion people on earth to serve the diabolical ruling class.

Thus as the only means of escaping this horrific outcome, it’s extremely important to expose this nightmarish globalist agenda that’s using the US Empire-NATO war machine to aggressively provoke rising world tensions and hostilities as precipitating pre-WWIII events. Per last year’s UN Global Trends Report, at near 60 million, 2014 saw more people being displaced around the world than any previous time in recorded history. The elite’s carefully engineered global hotspots cover every corner of the globe, from the US-induced political and economic unrest creating havoc now in Brazil and Venezuela; a stepped up war in Ukraine flanked by the built-up deployment of hostile NATO troops at the Russian border; ongoing war with no end in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen, and prewar skirmishes, flare-ups and small scale wars in Somalia, Pakistan, Nagorno-Karabakh, South Sudan, Burundi and Central African Republic all the way eastward to the rising tensions in the South China Sea and the Korean Peninsula as well as stretching northward to the Arctic Circle, the West’s push for confrontation, aggression and domination against the Eastern alliance is making global war eminent and virtually unavoidable.

Russia, China, Iran and even North Korea do not want war. And neither do all the people living in the West. But the Western crime cabal in charge never cares what the people want. As Kissinger says, we are all just “useless eaters,” taking up precious space and consuming their “nearly depleted” 19th century energy sources. The elite has made sure the masses stay stuck in the dark, unable to get their hands on or wrap their minds around free energy technology, cancer cures, antigravity technology or the global capacity to wipe out hunger and starvation to feed a world population up to 11 billion. All because a very powerful handful amongst the near 7.5 billion people on our planet want nearly all of us dead. And they are the driving force that controls the warmongering Western despots frothing at the mouth for global war and total planetary destruction.

The US Empire has maintained an unending agenda to stir up and keep hostile relations hot between US-backed South Korea and the Chinese-backed North Korea, otherwise known as George W’s “axis-of-evil” member. As part of the post-WWII contrived divide and conquer cold war of US-led “free world” versus those “nasty evil Commies” Russia and China, the globalists who ideologically have always leaned far closer towards Communist totalitarianism than free enterprise democracy have been carving up and splitting nations, pitting humans belonging to the same ethnic group against each other from Europe to Asia into two distinct warring camps. Be it US backed and controlled West Germany versus Soviet backed and controlled East Germany, US backed and controlled Western Europe versus Soviet backed and controlled Eastern Europe, Soviet backed and partially controlled China versus US backed and controlled Taiwan, US/French backed and US controlled South Vietnam versus Soviet/Chinese backed and controlled North Vietnam to US backed and controlled South Korea versus Soviet/Chinese backed and controlled North Korea. For centuries the globalist agenda has ruthlessly and systematically torn apart nation after nation, literally down to tearing apart family after family just to keep wars and the threat of human self-annihilation alive and US global hegemony thriving at the rest of humanity’s expense.

This presentation will focus on just one of these countless hotspots that could at any time trigger World War III. Heightened tensions this week on the Korean Peninsula have brought Cold War 2 to the near boiling point between US puppet South Korea and China’s wayward puppet North Korea. The latest North Korean launch of last week’s nuclear missile test, the second this year, has the US and South Korea ready to up their anti-North Korean ante. Despite economic sanctions supposedly intended to dissuade a targeted nation to curb its militarized activities, sanctions have only had the opposite effect on North Korea. The six nation diplomatic talks with North Korea to curtail its pursuit of a nuclear bomb broke down eight years ago and the “most sanctioned nation on earth” as George W Bush called North Korea has been sanctioned and re-sanctioned ad nauseam to no avail. Yet recent calls for more diplomacy rather than confrontation and escalation appear to be falling on deaf ears. When North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un rightly believes that US-led forces pose a grave nuclear threat to North Korea’s very survival, no sanctions will deter a nation from doing what it believes it must do to survive.

After last Friday’s nuclear test detonation estimated to be twice the strength of Hiroshima’s blast, the international community once again lambasted the North Korean dictator. Though portrayed by Western press as an unpredictable, highly volatile, paranoid madman, US aggressions historically have forced Kim and his Pyongyang government to expend their limited resources almost exclusively on expanding its military self-defense. The much maligned so called nation pariah is simply doing what it believes is necessary to survive in an increasingly hostile world led by US Empire. An objective examination of North Korea’s history will demonstrate the veracity that it’s not North Korea that’s been the true aggressor but the US Empire.

For over five centuries from 1392-1910 under the Josean Dynasty, Korea remained a united nation with one culture and one language. Then from 1910-1945, Korea became a colonial victim of Japanese imperialism. Once Japan was defeated in WWII, since the Philippines had already been an imperialistic possession of the US and Japan itself was the vanquished enemy, they were both placed directly under postwar control of the US Empire. With Korea a lesser priority, by convenient expediency, the Korean people were once again re-victimized, arbitrarily divided by the two occupying military forces at the close of WWII, the Soviets in the north and Americans in the south.

With US interests represented by two Army colonels working as junior State Department officials, one Dean Rusk, the future Secretary of State under John Kennedy, just five days prior to Japan’s surrender in August 1945, without input from any Koreans, their nation was severed roughly in half at the 38th parallel, ensuring that the capital Seoul would remain under US auspices. The provisional South Korean government sought friendly relations with all nations, independence, social and land reform and ultimate reunification. These democratic principles and policies that were beneficial to the South Korean citizens stood in stark contrast with the imperialistic design that US military control would accept and the provisional government in September 1945 was quickly disbanded. Eventually in its place was inserted an anti-Communist oppressive dictator that suited US interests. The Truman Doctrine essentially took over where Japanese imperial rule occupation left off in both East and South East Asia. Empire’s sphere of influence included Japan, South Korea, Philippines, Indochina (Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia), Formosa (Taiwan) and Indonesia.

By the original postwar mandate the two Koreas were supposed to be reunified by 1948, but because the globalist designed cold war was already in full swing, the puppet regime in the north controlled by Stalin didn’t trust the US installed South Korean anti-Communist puppet dictator who wantonly murdered democratic opposition movements especially from the left. Stalin’s boy to the north was just as bloodthirsty. Like trained cock fights, both world powers encouraged and promoted espionage and covert aggression against the other. So by imperialistic design, Korea was never liberated and for over a century now has remained a divided and conquered people living in an occupied and divided nation for over seven decades.

Former Secretary of State John Foster Dulles organized a series of covert incursions by South Korean provocateurs into North Korean territory in 1949 and 1950 prior to the start of the Korean War. This offensive tactic of probing and war baiting is a familiar strategy in US false flag history designed to intentionally trigger wars. This same sort of false flag was used as the precursor that President Johnson jumped on to falsely accuse North Vietnam of firing upon a US Navy vessel in the Gulf of Tonkin in August 1964 in order to jump start the Vietnam War that his predecessor JFK had vowed to avoid. But less than 9 months after co-conspirator LBJ murdered Kennedy, he ignited what would become America’s longest running war in history, that is until the same cloak and dagger neocons came to power this century to secure their own “endless war on terror.”

With the Rockefeller funded and founded Council on Foreign Relations as well as the United Nations actively co-opted by the US government, a prior arrangement had been secretly made that authorized UN troops (of course consisting almost exclusively of US military) to come to South Korea’s aid if it was determined that North Korea attacked South Korea. Thus, the US-led incursions north of the 38th parallel were designed to provoke North Korean forces to retaliate and the case of North Korea invading South Korea could be bogusly claimed. From June 1950 until July 1953, an estimated sum of 3 million Korean civilians (some estimate as high as 4-5 million) were killed, two thirds in North Korea although North Korea cites up to one third of the total population in the north were killed as forgotten victims of US crimes against humanity. No other war has inflicted so many casualties on any one nation in history.

The nonstop carpet bombing and firebombing of North Korea with napalm mercilessly pulverized its 78 cities and countless villages in both North and South Korea. And within less than six months of the war’s outset, the US Empire began threatening the north with atomic bombs, a constantly used ultimatum weapon America has been clubbing Pyongyang with for the last two-thirds of a century. In violation of the Armistice Agreement, in 1958 the US began installing nuclear warhead missiles in South Korea aimed directly at North Korea. In 1974 South Korea (otherwise known as Republic of Korea or ROK) began preparing its own nuclear development. And over the decades Empire has upgraded and augmented its nuclear weapons systems both in and outside South Korea to destroy North Korea (otherwise known as Democratic People’s Republic of Korea or DPRK). These nukes obviously pose a direct threat to both DPRK and China. Is it any wonder then that North Korea has invested so heavily in efforts to acquire a nuclear arsenal as its only deterrent to protect itself from the nuke-powered world bully possessing the dubious distinction of being the only nation on earth to callously use such heinous WMD’s on two large human populated cities?

Korea’s “undeclared war” tripled the Pentagon budget, expanded NATO power and its anti-communist false flag Gladio operations in Europe, fueled exponential growth of the military industrial complex that Eisenhower would later warn America against, and recruited the UN as an imperialistic partner-in-crime whose co-conspiring role carries on even more so to this day. Then with the Chinese Red Army entering the conflict alongside North Korea in 1951, US war involvement fell into its first military quagmire reaching a trench war stalemate forcing a negotiated 1953 Armistice Agreement to cease hostile operations and retain the original 38th parallel demilitarized zone as an intractable artificial wedge dividing Koreans. The agreement is not a peace treaty as only military leaders from the US, China and North Korea signed it leaving out South Korea entirely. Plus it technically leaves the two nations legally in a continual state of war. A grass roots peace movement in South Korea has emerged calling for the ROK and its northern neighbor DPRK to implement a finalized peace treaty that includes stipulations for concrete steps toward reunification.

During the more than six decades since the Korean Armistice, the US Empire has operated the only permanent garrison in Asia stationed along the world’s most armed border. Under a false UN mandate, the US has continually maintained a hefty troop size from the current 28,000 to 37,000 American soldiers as South Korea’s permanent fixture occupying force. General Vincent Brooks as the recently assigned top ranking US commander in the Republic of Korea outranks even the South Korean president and top South Korean general. The entire 625,000 active duty soldiers and nearly 3 million on active reserve status comprising the ROK defense forces are also directly under US military command. According to both public print and CIA sources, South Korea’s military strength and firepower is rated 11th in the world compared to North Korea’s 25th position. Yet for US imperialistic and hegemonic reasons alone, forever colonized South Korea remains subjugated to its high command master.

The biggest arms importer in the world at last count in 2014 is none other than South Korea buying $7 billion of its $7.3 billion worth from you guessed it America. That’s 96% of its war-making materials coming from the US military industrial complex… yet another boondoggle reason the Empire will never leave South Korea. And South Korea will never be an independent sovereign nation nor will it ever reunify with its neighbor. The war-making American Empire will make certain that never happens. Neither peacemaking nor reunification have ever been part of the Empire’s foreign policy agenda. Thus, nonstop US military presence in South Korea drives the most powerful wedge against the two Koreas ever reunifying. Clearly the US stands in the way as the biggest impediment to ever achieving a lasting, peaceful, unified Peninsula with a united Korean people.

Just as Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is currently flashing his “Yankee go home” card demanding the American military leave his country, so too should South Korea. But that’s simply out of the question since Seoul as a US puppet depends on US might to buffer and counter Kim’s bombastic bite. Plus way too much money is at stake. Additionally, South Koreans have been sufficiently brainwashed into believing that America is necessary to protect them from their so called menacing threat to the north.

Ever since the Korean War the United States has ensured that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea remains politically and economically isolated from the rest of the world. With layers of inhumane sanctions piled on top of one another, the US has torpedoed North Korea’s national economy including its industrial base, its agriculture and foreign trade. As a recent example of how the US manipulates and controls the United Nations, in March this year the UN Security Council passed Resolution 2270 raining yet more crippling sanctions down on the beleaguered DPRK. The basis for the latest sanctions are unfounded since they are a consequence of bogus testimony of alleged human rights violations that have been proven false. The “eyewitness” testimony came from DPRK defectors who were paid to lie as confirmed by articles in both The New York Times and The Guardian.

This overly punitive UN resolution prohibits 50% of North Korea’s export sales of its minerals like gold, titanium, vanadium and other precious minerals and metals. Moreover, the resolution bans other UN nations from teaching North Koreans advanced computer science, physics, geospatial navigation, nuclear engineering and other advanced academic and technological disciplines, effectively impoverishing the people of DPRK from learning skills required for modern development and sound medical treatment, relegating the nation to primitive healthcare service and last century technology.

Since 1998 North Korea has carried out five nuclear tests and launched six rocket carrying satellites, the latest test a week ago and the second since last January. While US Empire has vowed it will never allow DPRK to gain possession of a single nuclear weapon, since 1998 the US has been busily developing new precision guided nukes, built more non-nuclear WMD’s and spends $8 billion each year to maintain and upgrade its vast 7,100 nuclear warhead arsenal. And even though official US statements assert that all American and South Korean nuclear weapons have been removed from ROK a quarter century ago, it’s a meaningless, misleading gesture because of US capability to launch its warheads against North Korea and China from the continental United States as well as from any strategic nuke-powered submarine.

Meanwhile, a number of other nations have recently shot satellites into orbit and even tested long range ballistic missiles. Yet North Korea and to some extent Iran are the only nations singled out and attacked by the world community of course led by Empire. A blatant double standard exists when so called Western allies like Israel are given carte blanche to continue stockpiling its nukes but when countries on Empire’s shit list exercise their rights to defend themselves, they’re customarily demonized. The apartheid Jewish State just finagled a near billion dollar a year boost in US military aid to expand its nuclear threat and genocidal policies against Palestinians and the Arab world with an obscene $38 billion commitment at US taxpayer expense over the next decade. In response to near a half century of nuclear threats with US nukes aimed directly at North Korea, the DPRK withdrew from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in 2003 and as such, no international law prohibits North Korea from developing nuclear weapons nor firing rockets carrying satellites into orbit. The pile-on of sanctions and hypocritical saber-rattling rhetoric against North Korea are both groundless and morally untenable.

In July Empire and ROK were at it again, instigating yet more threats to not only North Korea’s national security but Russia and China’s as well with the unveiling of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system to be located inside South Korea. With its implementation in NATO members Romania and Poland on Russia’s western front already well in progress, this sophisticated radar system and ballistic missile interceptor is construed by the three targeted Eastern nations as one more reckless act of US belligerence and confrontation on the path to world war. 

Like a tag team wearing down an opponent, Empire is betting on a strategy that helped bring the Soviet Empire to its knees and eventual ashes. By continuing to escalate provocation and threat by rolling out more potent weaponry like the THAAD missile defense system as part of an unbeatable arms race that an impoverished North Korea cannot begin to match, the objective is to bankrupt and destroy the poorest country in Asia. This same strategy already proved successful once against the Soviet Union. The neocons today are confident that it will once again work against DPRK. Knowing that the North Korean government will sacrifice everything in order to bolster its military capabilities to keep up with US-ROK at the expense of its own people, creating such extreme economic hardship on a destitute population, Empire’s banking on a desperate people in North Korea to rise up in rebellion triggering regime change.  

This year the US and South Korea have dramatically stepped up their joint military exercises practicing war against their North Korean enemy from once a year to twice a year. And they’re bigger than ever.  Last spring’s annual drill was extended to two months in length. Three months later more war games began late last month and just ended two weeks ago. Seeing the US aggressively militarizing their homeland like never before, the latest round of drills was met by protests from antiwar peace groups within South Korea that recognize practicing preemptive war strikes on the Korean Peninsula is not making them any safer or more secure but only increasing the risk of an epic scale war and massive carnage. A growing number of Koreans on both sides of the border realize that these US-ROK war games are not about defensive deterrence at all, but are geared to launch first strike attacks on North Korean nuclear and missile facilities and to take out the Pyongyang leadership. In response, the North Korean foreign minister issued this statement:

The military drill is an unpardonable criminal act of pushing the situation of the Korean peninsula to the brink of a war as the situation there has become unprecedentedly unstable due to the US introduction of nuclear strategic bombers, THAAD and other strategic assets into the peninsula and its vicinity.

In preparation for the coming war to take out North Korea, the US military has been quietly moving its fleet of nuclear bombers to nearby Guam. In an unprecedented display of air power, last month both B-1 and B-2 Spirit stealth bombers were dispatched to join B-52 bombers for a triple joint air operation for the first time. Understandably, the Pyongyang government interpreted it as evidence of a US plan to preemptively drop nuclear bombs on North Korea. Both the Continuous Bomber Presence (CBP) and the Bomber Assurance and Deterrence Deployment (BAAD) operations being conducted now in the Pacific are indisputably connected to offensively targeting North Korea. Yet the world media ignores Empire transgressions that cannot hide its intent to start a nuclear war against DPRK. If the roles were reversed, all the world would be reacting with sheer outrage over such brazen acts of warmongering aggression. Again, always the double standard.

Then earlier this week to take it up a notch in a grand show of force designed to intimidate Pyongyang, Empire again flexed its airpower muscle with a staged flyover of strategic nuke-powered bombers just 50 miles from North Korea so all the world could see. Sanctions, saber-rattling and more threats have never worked on this poorest outcast nation on the Asian continent. DPRK is determined to exercise its right to defend itself with whatever means is necessary, and though it cannot compete in the Empire ruled nuclear arms race, for its survival it will not back down from seeking a semblance of nuclear parity.

While every North Korean action to defend itself against impossible odds is indignantly portrayed as raw aggressive insanity that must be stopped at all cost, in contrast the far deadlier, far more provocative machinations committed by the US and its ROK puppet ally are always favorably slanted as righteous efforts to protect the world by keeping the lawless rogue state in check. Pure deceit is how the US and its globalist masters continue getting away with mass murdering our planet, multiple targeted nations at a time. Using nonstop war propaganda through mainstream media, the Empire that’s always clearly been the biggest single threat to the entire world is constantly twisting reality around to ensure that the tiny nation of North Korea is perceived to be the out of control demon bent on destroying not just ROK and US but the whole world.

The US has sought to create and maintain barriers between not only both Korean nations but also exploit potential conflicts that might weaken ties between DPRK and its closest ally China as well as Russia. Indeed a major reason why the US stations so many of its troops and weapons in ROK is to militarize South Korea as part of its aggressive “Asian pivot” strategy to encircle its other Eastern enemy China. And so status quo of yet another dissected nation and divided people prevails as American Empire remains at war really with both Koreas, subversively sabotaging whatever mutual effort or will each may possess to want to reunify and live in peace.

Growing tensions on the Korean Peninsula are but one example of the hectic pace of destabilizing events unfolding around the globe. They are near daily reminders of just how dangerous our world is becoming. The hostilities in a dozen hotspots are soaring and the likelihood of another global war has never been closer. Continuing to deny this tragic and alarming reality is suicide. The dire warnings that we realists are shouting from the rooftops are not the raving mad rants of the Chicken Littles of the world as the CIA and gov.corp would have us believe. Since the JFK assassination whitewash, the CIA labeled those of us who question deep state lies as conspiracy theorists as its highly effective strategy to dismiss the dark truth from ever reaching the light of day. Sticking our heads in the sand playing passive and powerless will allow billions to needlessly die in the coming years. We have no choice but to stop these traitorous killers from committing the unthinkable - human genocide and slaughter of nearly 7 billion humans currently living and breathing on this planet right now. Acting purely in self-defense and self-preservation, we must imprison the guilty to save ourselves, our children, future generations and our precious planet from complete ruin. With the stakes never higher in history, it’s do or die time on planet earth.
