US Regime Change Targets Thailand

Islamic Terrorism Has an Advocate in the Oval Office

The Mujahedin e-Khalq (MEK), or People’s Mujahedin Organization of Iran, has a long history of terrorism, of murder, and of attacks on civilians. But its chief Washington lobbyist, John Bolton, is seeing to it that the MEK will be the go-to-organization in the event that “regime change” comes to Tehran. That in and of itself is a crime.

– America Is Not Listening –

Judging by the US MSM response to Putin’s speech on Thursday (attached below at 12 minutes), it seems we have a massive breakdown in understanding nuclear issues in this country. For us it’s a matter of boasting, I guess — Trump’s “fire and fury” and the end of Earth. But those paying attention should know that last Thursday, in a low-key but monumental response to American threats, and without much fanfare, Mr. Putin stated what Russia has been doing to protect itself from what they view as a dangerous bully. It surprised many of us, I believe most likely, our over-budgeted Pentagon and over-rated CIA with a pretty stark statement, if not proof, that the Russians can defend themselves quite well for about 12% of the defense budget we waste.

I may be wrong, but it seems that it blows to smithereens all the billions of dollars we’ve spent on ABMs. Big cutbacks are due, but already it seems the Pentagon is asking for more money to keep up with the Russians’ “threat.” The madness will grow.

But what the US doesn’t understand is what Putin is saying. And in that sense, it was a very hopeful speech to me. What he’s saying in the plainest English is: ‘Stop — before it’s too late. We don’t want to fight you! Just leave us alone! Call us names, kick us out of the Olympics, have your sanctions, but don’t keep pushing for “regime change,” aka the overthrow of the Russian State. Don’t keep pressing with your NATO threats on our borders. Don’t keep thinking that you have the upper hand. You don’t. We’re quite capable of meeting all your threats — and frankly more. We don’t have to boast.’

The whole thing smacks to me of a veteran gunfighter in a predictable Western, telling the hot-headed kid bent on proving he’s better, ‘Don’t, kid. Don’t go for that gun. Go home… to your Mama, to your wife, a glass of milk, or maybe a peaceful life… whatever. Just go.’

Maybe it’s not such a bad idea.

Americans are equally misguided by the MSM on Syria. Here Jeffrey Sachs, who’ve I come to admire, presents a wise analysis of American policy in Syria and the lies floated by Hillary Clinton. This of course ties into Russia and Iran on another front. It’s all part of one big mess and we keep moving towards the dogpile. Please let us turn in another direction before it’s too late.

Iran accuses US of ‘grotesque’ meddling through social media

State Department Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs Steve Goldstein said on Tuesday that Iranians were using virtual private networks (VPNs) to access Facebook and Twitter pages where the department was communicating with protesters.

“We want to encourage the protestors to continue to fight for what’s right and to open up Iran,” Goldstein said.
He said that social-media apps were “legitimate avenues of communication.”
“And people in Iran and throughout should be able to access those sites.”
