We’ve pretty much known this for years. Why is nothing ever done about it?

US-trained Syria rebels do a deal with al-Qaeda

A Division 30 statement made after the release of its fighters described Nusra Front as “brothers”, a sign that the moderate group is capitulating to the Islamists. It said it was on the “same page with all holy warriors in Syria”.

…Division 30 was to be the nucleus of new Syrian national army, composed of groups deemed more “moderate” by Western nations who fear the dominance of Islamist rebels in Syria. But the $US36 million ($49 million) program has been beset by troubles from its inception eight months ago.

Funny or Die Mocks Congressmen for Wanting Iraq-Style War with Iran

There is something so outrageously imperialistic about this Iran nonsense, that even the regular people, even the comedians can’t see the glaring bullying, double standard and essentially nuclear blackmail of it all.  We behave like Nazi Germany today, around the world, and it passes without comment.

Nuclear blackmail is real, and the US and its partners have been threatening to destroy Iran if they don’t accept terms dictated from Washington. Even if they do accept them, the likelihood is that the next thug administration will attack them anyway, guaranteeing that they are unable to retaliate — they have no deterrence against foreign aggression. Nuclear weapons are primarily defensive, as they deter aggressors from attacking you, since you can inflict losses on them as well.

The mainstream myth is that the US officials have some right to dictate to the world if they can have nuclear weapons or not. That doesn’t seem to apply to Israel, however, the world’s foremost rogue state, which acquired several hundred nukes and has started wars over the last fifty years almost as often as the US has.

Not one voice has ever been raised in Congress concerning Israel’s nuclear weapons and the very real threat they pose to world security. While encyclopedias of hysterical fearmongering have been blathered concerning Iran, with its zero atomic bombs. Not everyone on this planet is so head up its ass, hypocritical and ignorant as Americans.

America has lost much of its standing in the world for its double standards, unaccountable use of force and overt stupidity. It should lose even more of its standing for supporting terrorists in Libya and Syria and Nazis in the Ukraine. It claims to be against terrorism, but is in fact for it whenever the terrorists are blowing up people the US doesn’t like. That’s beyond hypocrisy and reaches the level of criminality: support for terrorism in Syria, Libya, Chechnya, Dagestan, Ukraine and beyond.

In early 2014 the United States and Europe made deals with Ukrainian fascists to overthrow the democratically elected Yanukovych government.  These fascists have paramilitary organizations of violent thugs (Right Sector, Svoboda, et al.). These have been brought into the new so-called “National Guard” and are now being trained by US military.

This is the third cease fire deal. The Kiev Nazis violated all previous agreements.

The Minsk ceasefire deal, point by point

Here is the breakdown of the deal:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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