Protesting across the globe: What took people to the streets in 2014

The US State Department has a keen interest, and involvement, in most if not all of these.

The conflict in Ukraine – a prelude of World War III – former Ambassador to the US

The conflict in Ukraine – a prelude of World War III, and the Minsk talks – this is the only alternative.

“This is a prelude to World War III. A lot of people know this. For example, Zaporizhia nuclear power plant just 160 kilometers away from the fighting. You can imagine what a disaster could happen if there will get a shell? We have an alternative to the Minsk talks? We can declare war Moscow to conduct a swift operation? No. Because in this case the cruise missiles will fly tomorrow to Kiev “, – said the diplomat.


“The rule of thumb was that when there was estimated collateral damage of up to 10 civilians, the ISAF commander in Kabul was to decide whether the risk was justifiable,” Der Spiegel quotes an ISAF officer who worked with the lists for years as saying.

“the Afghan narcotics trade has gotten undeniably worse since the U.S.-led invasion,” and the U.S. has “all[ied] with many of the same people who turned the country into the world’s biggest source of heroin.”

“We have not defeated the idea. We do not even understand the idea.”

Maj. Gen. Michael K. Nagata wants fresh ideas to defeat ISIS.

 In Battle to Defang ISIS, U.S. Targets Its Psychology

Dear General Nagata,

Ideas without logistical support: arms, vehicles, heavy artillery, are just debating clubs.

Still no one in Washington will call out SAUDI ARABIA, TURKEY, QATAR ET AL. for sponsoring this terrorist movement. This is a Wahabbi fundamentalist movement, similar and related to their sponsors in the Gulf kingdoms. They exist because they are blowing people up next door, rather than inside Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, etc.

Even Joe Biden, the vice president of the fucking United States has said:

“My constant cry was that our biggest problem is our allies — our allies in the region were our largest problem in Syria,”

…  “What were they doing?” Biden asked rhetorically. “They were so determined to take down Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war, what did they do? They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens, thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad — except that the people who were being supplied were al Nusra and al Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world.”

Leaked Wikileaks cables from Hillary Clinton say the same sorts of things.

Apparently everyone who is someone knows what’s going on, and yet the US military officers remain embarrassingly clueless and subservient. Your bosses collude with the sponsors of ISIS, every day. They are business partners, and business is good. They like ISIS when it blows up Syrians. They just don’t like it when it gets too big and starts snatching up oil fields.

That is the first thing you need to know to defeat the movement. Ask yourself why they so easily put sanctions on everyone they don’t like, Russia in particular, but no one is even talking about sanctioning Turkey or Saudi Arabia?

Even after the vice president confirms that they are criminally culpable for sponsoring the Islamic State?

Ask the real questions.

I could sure use some good news.





Love you, Abby.


Sony’s Brilliant Misdirection Play:
Why Aaron Sorkin is No Ring Lardner, Jr.

When radical movements and leaders emerge, practitioners of leftiness —using NGO money and/or media access— start speaking for the movement and eclipsing the real leaders. They come on like allies —”we’re helping you reach a wider audience,” etc.— but actually they’re weakening the movement’s message and demands.

Let me add how much I despise Sorkin’s fake Hollywood version of US politics. And so let’s let Amy Schumer take him down one more time…

AFGHAN-WAR-01Long after anyone can remember what is happening in Afghanistan, the US suddenly rolled up its war machine under cover of the Christmas break, picked up its bombs and went home. They’ll leave 13k “adviser” types, the variety who were scurrying out of Viet Nam from the roof of the embassy in 1975, tossing their helicopters into the sea.

There doesn’t seem to have been any “Al Qaeda” in the country for as long as anyone can remember, and Bin Laden, a special guest of the PAKISTANIS next door, is also dead. The loose ends of 9/11 were neatly wrapped up, tortured into silence, and the treasonous frothing ghouls who let it happen remain protected from justice. In a world of laws and justice American high officials would be sitting at war crimes trials and likely tried for aiding and abetting in the September 11th attacks to achieve their dream of a “New American Century.”

But it’s all myth all the time, all propaganda, all framing and the exploitation of the general public’s ignorance. Where to begin when your audience is worse than ignorant; they believe demonstrable falsehoods, by the plane load? And they are conditioned to reject any challenges to their pseudo-religious mythology.

The United States and NATO formally ended their war in Afghanistan on Sunday with a ceremony at their military headquarters in Kabul as the insurgency they fought for 13 years remains as ferocious and deadly as at any time since the 2001 invasion that unseated the Taliban regime following the Sept. 11 attacks.

The symbolic ceremony marked the end of the U.S.-led International Security Assistance Force, which will transition to a supporting role with 13,500 soldiers, most of them American, starting Jan. 1.
