However, one nation is free to do just that, knowing it faces no consequences of any kind from America, our closest ally, continually caught spying on us, buying off politicians or, as in Britain, running the government into the ground behind the front of “News Corp” and the Murdoch empire.
Since 1999, confirmed as the year that the invasion of Iran was decided upon by Israel and their key allies in the US, the “neocons,” world events have been dominated by attempts to pre-stage a massive war.
But the enemy is nearly unassailable, geographically isolated, armed to the teeth and closely aligned with China, the world’s second military power, the nation with the stranglehold on America’s credit purse strings.
9/11, Afghanistan and Iraq were just “run ups” to the Iran invasion that never materialized in 2005 like Bush had planned, pushed forward by a “false flag” terror attack in Bahrain the White House and JSOC had attempted, thwarted by patriotic American military leaders.
None of this is news, none is history, all is, however, very easy to document though some of those involved in thwarting the Bush plan have been assassinated and others put on “terror suspect” lists. Now we see it all heating up again.
I can categorically state that there are plans afoot to stage a terror attack on the United States, in the wake of the Norway killings, not a “lone nutcase,” but a staged terrorist attack with broad international implications. Intelligence is pouring in, and if I am getting it, it means the US and UK governments have this and more.
Whether they admit it, bury it or even know they have it is something else.
Recent history, particularly the Murdoch scandal in Britain, teaches us that police and counter-terrorism organizations have fallen under the control of “newspapers?”
No, the problem is far worse.
The endgame will be a nuclear bomb, a fission device or, minimally, a very large “dirty bomb.” Chatter says “Chicago.” To be blamed? Iran. Who is doing it?
Think “the ususal suspects,” think global, think Middle East, think Christian extremist, think Zionist, think big news agencies facing collapse, their leaders looking at prison, think oil, you know the names.
Think 81 members of congress in Israel, think 400 sworn to put Israel above the US, think debt collapse, think Republican party and the worst collection of candidates ever seen, cartoon characters Mike Dukakis could beat.
Next you will see “rockets” coming from Gaza and Lebanon, carefully staged by Israel, carefully timed to a pressure on Syria. Suddenly, Israeli news filled with stories of anti-government demonstrations and an Israeli version of “Arab Spring” are now talking “terrorism.”
In Syria, Assad had to shell entire cities into submission. Israel, thus far, has only had to kill 5 of their own. Note we say “thus far.” Author Jeff Gates outlines the narrative from the “usual suspects” here:
How many Americans had heard of the Taliban before March 2001 when destruction of the ancient Buddhas at Bamiyan was reported worldwide as a ‘Cultural Holocaust’? Voila! An Evil Doer brand emerged and was soon repackaged as Islamo-fascism.
Six months later, an attack on U.S. soil left little doubt that outraged Americans would be provoked to war. Combine an emotionally wrenching mass murder with manipulated intelligence and an invasion was assured—of Iraq. That miscue required sophisticated pre-staging.
Residents of Washington, DC well recall the sniper attacks that left ten dead during the October 2002 lead-up to a Senate vote on a war resolution sponsored by Jewish Zionist Senator Joe Lieberman. Those well-timed murders ensured a heightened sense of insecurity and helped ratchet up the requisite hatred—to invade a nation that played no role in 911.
Remember the Times Square Terrorist? A car belonging to a Muslim was found with two WalMart propane tanks, an alarm clock, a box of fireworks and some fertilizer. When? In May 2010 during the lead-up to a UN vote on a nuclear-free Middle East—opposed by Israel.
To sustain hate requires a sustained stream of plausible reasons to hate. Plus careful maintenance of a ‘generally accepted truth’ that keeps attention focused on a credible threat.
Preparing the Minds
Islamo-phobia was a fresh threat when it first appeared in a 1993 article in Foreign Affairs. Yet it dates from 1990 when Princeton Islamic scholar Bernard Lewis, an avid Zionist, touted “The Roots of Muslim Rage.” By 1996, Harvard Professor Samuel Huntington was ready to publish The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order.
With more than 100 nongovernmental organizations promoting The Clash, Americans experienced a seamless segue from an old narrative to a new. Without missing a beat in Pentagon spending, we ended a global Cold War and, by consensus, began a global War on Terrorism…
With Osama bin Laden dead and war-weary Americans nearing the tenth anniversary of 911, The narrative was losing its punch. Plus the storytellers face a transparency problem: Intelligence agencies worldwide have identified pro-Israelis as the common source of the manipulated intelligence that induced the invasion of Iraq.
What’s a Zionist to do? Answer: look to past successes.
Timing is Everything
Ten days prior to 911, Tel Aviv announced a $1 million grant to Israeli super-spy Jonathan Pollard. Why then? The timing suggests Tel Aviv was signaling its operatives and sayanim (Hebrew for volunteers).
The Norwegian shooter is akin to the narrative-advancing snipers who emerged in the lead-up to the Senate vote authorizing the U.S. military to invade Iraq. In the lead-up to next month’s UN vote on statehood for Palestine, the carnage in Norway freshened up a stale storyline.
This latest mass murder was committed on the 65th anniversary of the bombing of the King David Hotel in Tel Aviv. That mass murder was an operation of the Irgun, Zionist-terrorist predecessors to the Likud Party of today’s Benjamin Netanyahu.
The same night that Israel launched its Six-Day War in June 1967, Irgun operative Mathilde Krim was continuing her torrid affair with President Lyndon Johnson—in the White House. Why then? Because that land grab ensured the roots of the Muslim rage required to shape future events.
Why would a Norwegian Zionist target Norwegians? For the same reason that Irgun Zionist Menachem Begin murdered Jews in the King David Hotel: to advance a narrative.
In September 2000, Likud Prime Minister Ariel Sharon led a provocative march to Jerusalem’s Temple Mount. When, after a year of calm, suicide bombings recommenced, Sharon and Netanyahu warned that only when Americans “feel our pain” would we appreciate their plight. To feel Israel’s pain, they said, would require that America lose 4,500 to 5,000 to terrorism, the initial estimate of those lives lost to a mass murder one year later.
The well-timed operation in Norway turned to mass murder as a means to remake the world order in plain sight. Those complicit specialize in maintaining a storyline that dates from when the medieval Crusades pit Christians against Muslims.Absent the success of such deceit, we may forget whom to hate.
Look for news stories claiming Iran has sent sniper teams to Syria to gun down innocent demonstrators, dozens of major news agencies carry these, wild and insane stories. Remember Obama’s announcement on Syria yesterday?
This prestages moves against Hezbollah in Lebanon, sold to the west as “security for Israel,” but seen in the Middle East as genocide, a holocaust against the remaining Palestinians, Israel wiping a people, racially Semitic, 4000 years of continual residence in Judea, many former Jews and Christians, wiping them from the face of the earth.
9/11 came up again, Richard Clarke, former counter-terrorism “insider” came out blaming George Tenet and the CIA for “allowing” Muslims to “do” 9/11. Problem here? The story is old, undeserving of the massive news coverage. Problem two, ten years of evidence has debunked the hijacker theory.
You don’t know that? Watch too much TV news? Keeping the old stories, Flight 93, the box cutters, the 19 hijackers in front of you, stories long proven to be total fabrications is a full time job.
We call this “disinformation” and it is why having government controlled news or, as in Britain, “news controlled government,” is so dangerous.
We are told Clarke was a member of the group that planned the 9/11 attacks and the subsequent coverup, coordinated through Israel, Bush insiders, a group called PNAC and Pentagon traitors who tried, in 2007, to steal nuclear weapons to stage a war on Iran.
Do you now see why TV news is so dangerous?
Not a word of this will be printed in the west. Expect to turn on the TV and see “Schindlers List” and “Exodus” reruns and new films released about hunting down Nazi war criminals.
This is how terrorism is pre-staged, this and Norway and the London riots and the 5 dead Israelis while cluster bombs have been dropped on Gaza night after night with no reports at all.
Fully complicit in this is Al Jazeera, a propaganda organization that Americans are told is run by terrorists.
In fact, it is a censorship agency that is used to control news given to Muslims, buying sympathy and credibility while being controlled by the CIA and Mossad. Remember the talk, Bush, saying he was going to shoot their satellites down? Funny. What a liar!
Israel is facing the strongest pressure in decades, massive demonstrations of its Jewish population demanding the ouster of the Netanyahu government that has wasted the country’s resources on “phony security issues,”along with broad international condemnation which will be presented to the United Nations next month.
Turkey, long an ally of Israel, once hopeful of membership in the EU has been blocked permanently.
Think Iraq. We know we have been told to forget Iraq but, in the past weeks, terror attacks there have taken on a massive scale. This is no accident.
Tensions between Shiites and Sunnis, there and across the Middle East, have been orchestrated to create a mosaic of instability, cover for spy agencies to infiltrate and turn the new “Arab Spring” governments in Tunisia and Egypt.
What can we expect in Libya, Gaddafi supposedly leaving in a week, his billions safe?
Gaddafi, like Assad, has been running a police state, despite the claims of some members of the press. However, those same people who wrongly defend Gaddafi very rightly warn of what will follow.
Americans aren’t told that Turkey stands ready to invade Syria. Turkey claims to be angry at Israel but it is Israel that wants Turkey to invade Syria and is telling them so through Israel’s “client state,” the United States of America.
Too complicated for you? This means you have been watching too much news.
GOING NUCLEAR, FOR A MORE “GLOWING” AMERICA
Two weeks ago, stories oft told, Iran having purchased nuclear weapons, stories related to the Maddow video, began running. This is an earlier version by Alexander Cockburn, sent on by Michael Shrimpton:
Lost Nuclear Warheads from a B-52 now in Iran?
By ALEXANDER COCKBURN
Iran may have the weapons-grade uranium out of three nuclear warheads dumped out of a B-52 back in 1991. Or so at least the US government might have some reason to believe, according to a seemingly well-informed person talking to CounterPunch last week.
On February 3, 1991, this particular B-52G had been deployed to circle around Baghdad. It was armed with 3 SRAM missiles armed with nuclear warheads and fitted with rocket drives to push them 100 miles to the rear of the B-52 before detonating…
The weapons were lost, a “Broken Arrow” declared by the US.
The CIA’s top man in the area, Osama bin Laden, helped run the recovery operations that led into Kenya and Tanzania.
His reward was a terrorism indictment and the initial invention of the previously unknown term “Al Qaeda.”
One of these lost weapons made its way, part of it at least, to North Korea where it was part of an unsuccessful “demonstration,” a shipload of fertilizer and one “plutonium pit” bought from arms dealers from Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) and South Africa.
For years, the Pelandaba facility in South Africa produced highly enriched, weapons grade uranium. This was a facility owned by Armscorp.
The uranium came from the Congo, supplied by Gencor, a company owned by the Rothschild family.
GENCORE was an amalgamation of Union Mining Corporation and General Mining Corporation. Their real business was nuclear proliferation done in partnership between Israel and South Africa, a partnership that tested nuclear weapons, one in 1979 and sold them on the open market, one to North Korea which was exploded in 2009.
The Maddow story, of an attempted raid on Pelandaba is partially true. It is never asked why and how nuclear bomb making material ended up there. This isn’t DU or isotopes, this is plutonium and uranium 235, pure as the driven snow, something even a child could make a nuclear weapon with.
A year ago, President Obama thanked South Africa for abandoning its nuclear weapons program, something never reported except here.
United States President Barack Obama on Sunday heaped praise on South Africa for taking the decision to become the first country to abandon a nuclear weapons programme, as he met President Jacob Zuma.
Obama met Zuma amid a string of bilateral meetings with world leaders on the eve of a 47-nation nuclear security summit,
designed to draw commitments from key powers to keep loose nuclear material out of the hands of extremist groups.
“South Africa is singular in having had a nuclear weapon program, had moved forward on it, and then decided this was not
the right path,” Obama said, noting how South African had since been a leader on non-proliferation.
“South Africa has special standing in being a moral leader on this issue. And I wanted to publicly compliment President Zuma and his administration for the leadership they’ve shown,” Obama said.
“And we are looking forward toward the possibility of them helping to guide other countries down a similar direction of non-proliferation.”
South Africa abandoned its nuclear weapons program in the 1990s and the International Atomic Energy Agency certified in 1994 that the programme had been fully dismantled. – Sapa-AFP
The dismantled program, Israeli and South African, had produced and tested weapons, some which were turned over to the US to be dismantled.
What Obama is thanking South Africa for, and 3 that Britain had taken control of and “misplaced,” amid stories of Saddam having them, Iran using them or some even being placed inside the US as “blackmail.”
We tracked them from Durban to Oman to Cyprus, one to North Korea where it was “demonstrated” and two a source of deep concern.
This is a back channel intel source discussing this:
The fissile material recently stolen from Pelindaba has a long history. It came from six atomic bombs made there in the 1980s.
Initially they were shipped from South Africa direct to Chicago, USA before the Afrikaners handed South Africa over to the Blacks. The six remained in storage with each still in its separate 20ft ISO Container. Then after all six atomic bombs were finally taken out of their shipping containers, and dismantled, Their fissile materials had to be returned to South Africa.
Thereafter everyone could pretend that only SIX bombs (not nine plus one that was tested) had ever been made, and that these SIX had never left South Africa. Even Obama joined in on this act of deception.
The stories have been verified, contacts with Armscorp and Gencor. We have the histories of the production teams, the agreements between South Africa and Israel, the shipping of the weapons, the negotiations which included Nelson Mandela, Dr. David Kelly and a very young David Cameron.
We have also been contacted by a virtual army of shadowy figures, arms dealers, former “Iran/Contra” figures, names on “watch lists” who move with the ease of Swiss diplomats.
The result? A “legend,” the intelligence term for a false background, has been created to support missing nuclear weapons, stolen fissionable material, everything necessary to place blame on Iran, perhaps even Pakistan and China.
The agenda? Such things are too dark to imagine.
Back in 2000, the Supreme Court placed George “W” Bush in office, a mentally unstable individual with little personal focus, an addict, a “dry drunk” with delusional religious beliefs and a personal history it took millions to bury.
Soon afterward, the largest terror attack in history accidentally happened on a day that NORAD was “off duty.”
It was a day that the Air Force was involved in war games and unable to respond to threats a day that scientists will tell you the laws of physics, of “conservation of matter and energy” and even the flow of time itself seemed suspended.
A country led by a psychotic dupe, one not dissimilar from the virtual army of malignant narcissists lining up to run against Obama, was capable of anything.
After all, the military had been taken over by the Dominionist cult, dedicated to bringing on the “end times” through staging a nuclear war while the White House held hourly prayer sessions and with the term “rapture” used far more often than “fiscal.”
Thousands died on 9/11 under questionable circumstances too absurd they defy belief, circumstances never to be spoken of, never to be questioned and certainly never to be reported.
Five died in Israel, a small price for control. The agenda?
Doesn’t the world have too many people, people using too much of the world’s resources, not paying enough mortgage interest, not buying enough gasoline, eating too much food? What if most of them were to simply vanish? Is the technology there to do that? I think the Japanese have answered that question for us.
Is the will there to do it? There’s the rub. As long as we believe evil doesn’t exist…
In Britain a major area for this is school mates. These guys are almost as tight a combat squad veterans. Don’t miss the ‘grooming’ that Cameron got for top political office and his media stint which certainly put him in the loop on much of the behind the scenes Murdoch stuff (note media positions of the others, including spouses, especially the Murdoch properties and you will see an intelligence operation in action).
One of the major goals of foreign media espionage is to have your fingers on the pulse of a nation, especially their emerging leaders, where early relationships (and funding) can put you right at the table of power down the road.
I also wanted to extend a personal VT thank you for the great info that is contributed from readers in the comment sections. Jim W. Dean, VT editor.
1. Sebastian Grigg …Still close to David Cameron, Grigg knew him from Eton and lives nearby, in Holland Park. Born into privilege – he is the oldest son of Baron Altrincham, Anthony Ullick David Dundas Grigg, and went to Eton before going to Oriel College – he is now a member of the moneyed aristocracy as a partner at Goldman Sachs. He and his wife, former Times journalist Rachel Kelly, host an annual Christmas drinks in Lansdowne Crescent which is very much a fixture for Notting Hill grandees. Grigg made an unsuccessful bid to be a Tory MP.
2. David Cameron …Misdemeanours with cannabis aside, Cameron was clearly a surefooted operator at Eton, for by the time he arrived at Oxford he had the social connections to make joining the Bullingdon Club easy. He still found time for work, though, getting a first in Philosophy, Politics and Economics before going on to work at the Conservative Research Department. Spells at the Treasury and Home Office, then seven years as communications head at Carlton TV. Elected MP for Witney in 2001, and became Tory leader in 2005.
3. Ralph Perry Robinson… A former child actor, he had a walkon part in the 1984 film Another Country, that study of public school homosexuality and betrayal. At Oxford he once paraded round Oriel quad dressed as a monk and calling for virgins to be sacrificed. A former pupil of the Prince of Wales Institute of Architecture, he was recruited by Richard Rogers to help him design a virtual reality centre in Japan. He now lives in a village near Salisbury, Wiltshire, where he makes furniture.
4. Ewen Fergusson… Generally thought of as the “quiet one” of the group, Fergusson also had a wild side and is thought to have been responsible for a notorious Bullingdon incident in which a plant pot was thrown through a restaurant window, resulting in six members spending a night in police cells. The son of former rugby international turned British ambassador in Paris Sir Ewen Fergusson, Ewen Junior – Rugby and Oriel – is now a partner in the banking and finance section of City law firm Herbert Smith.
5. Matthew Benson… Born into proper money – his family were wealthy merchant bankers – Benson spent three years working for Morgan Stanley before setting up a property consultancy. Now a director of Rettie and Co, an Edinburgh-based property company, he married in 1997 Lady Lulu Douglas-Hamilton, ex-wife of Lord Patrick Douglas-Hamilton, at a ceremony which involved a ruined castle being rebuilt over three floors.
6. Sebastian James… Another Bullingdon blue blood, James is the son of Lord Northbourne, a major landowner from Kent. Something of an entrepreneur, his business ventures have included a DVD rental business, Silverscreen, and a dotcom business, ClassicForum, which was supposed to be an eBay for rare books.
7. Jonathan Ford… The president of the Bullingdon – a post to which Boris Johnson aspired, but never succeeded in attaining – the Westminster-educated Ford was elected to the post because “he had a mad genius about him”. After Oxford, where he read modern history, he had a spell in the City as a banker with Morgan Grenfell before going into financial journalism. He is now deputy editor of a financial website, and married to Susannah Herbert, literary editor of the Sunday Times.
8. Boris Johnson… He looked much the same then as he does now, albeit a trifle slimmer, and was regarded in much the same light: ludicrous, but with an ambition that is not to be underestimated. Beaten by Ford for the post of president of the Buller, he made up for it by becoming president of the Oxford Union. Editor of the Spectator from 1999 to 2005, and MP for Henley since 2001, his chief occupations outside journalism and politics would seem to be amusing television quiz show audiences and being unfaithful to his wives (two, at the last count).
9. Harry Eastwood… Another old Etonian, after Oxford Eastwood worked in corporate finance at Storehouse, the retail group. Later tried his hand at setting up his own business, co-founding a firm called Filmbox which aimed to operate vending machines for people to rent videos from. They were persuasive enough to get backers to stump up £450,000, but the business was a failure before it even got off the ground. Is now commercial director for a company called Monkey.
