The simple truth: The U.S. caused Europe's refugee crisis

One thing you can almost always count on: When a major narrative takes over the news, it will be devoid of any sort of useful context. Put another way, when we are saturated with a "mega-problem," we can be sure that we will not be told the real cause — not if it so happens the US had something to do with it. No, it is always just a new thing to occupy us, to push out other stories, to encourage copious amounts of superficial debate (of the sort that typically rages over spectator sports), that never begins to get at the truth.

And so it is with the epic deluge of refugees fleeing the Middle East for Europe.

I was among the unfortunately small numbers of journalists warning about the rush to war with Saddam Hussein, and pointing out how virtually the entire US establishment was complicit in this charade, thus justifying a war based on counterfeit claims. Shortly after the hostilities, I wrote about the role of The New York Times in stoking the machine, principally via its star reporter, Judith Miller.

But that colossal gamble was just for starters.

Comment: Endless media coverage for weeks, and yet this simple truth is nowhere to be found in mainstream sources. Yes, the U.S. is responsible, but no, it will not take any responsibility. The consequences of its actions are someone else's problem, in this case, Europe. That's how the American Empire rolls: wanton destruction and chaos. Like typical psychopaths, they just don't care. As long as they get what they want.


Total Bollocks from MI5

In the last decade, now 7/7 has dropped out of this statistic, only one person has been killed in the UK by an Islamic terrorist attack. Let me repeat that. In the last decade, one person has been killed in the UK by an Islamic terrorist attack. That unfortunate death was Lee Rigby.

Rigby's tragic murder illustrated how easy it is for terrorists to commit an outrage. Two very disorganised Nigerian nutters murdered him with knives. Unfortunately, if a couple of nutters decide to go at someone on the street, they have a high chance of success.

Which is why you would have to be a lunatic actually to believe MI5's repeated claims during the last decade that there are thousands of dedicated terrorists out there, fanatical determined and organised, but in a decade of constant effort they have succeeded in killing nobody else. There were, MI5 claim, six actual terrorist plots this year but fortunately MI5 saved all of us.

If you believe MI5's stories, there are two possibilities. The first is that we have security services of a quite incredible efficiency, able to foil random terrorism, generally regarded as near impossible. The second is that we have thousands of dedicated terrorists of such incredible ineptitude that they can't manage to kill anybody, even when they could choose any random undefended target in the entire UK and any method from knives to poison to hit and run to shooting to bombs, and don't mind losing their own lives in the attempt. We have rubbish terrorists.

Piggy Bank

#PigGate: British PM Cameron once inserted his 'private part' into a dead pig's mouth, claims scorned billionaire Tory supporter


Cameron with two others from his species: Anders Fogh Rasmussen (Fmr. Sec-Gen. of NATO) and General Breedlove ('Supreme Allied Commander Europe' of NATO).
The #PigGate scandal, stemming from a startling claim that David Cameron put "a private part of his anatomy" into a dead pig's mouth at a student initiation ceremony at Oxford, has sparked an endless barrage of jokes and mockery online.

Quoting a "distinguished" contemporary, the Daily Mail reported that the then-future British Prime Minister, in his student days in Oxford, participated in an outrageous initiation ceremony that involved a dead pig's body and at least one of Cameron's "private" parts.

Comment: From the Wikipedia page of the Oxford 'society' that Cameron apparently did this for, we read:
The Piers Gaveston Society is a men-only dining club founded in 1977 at the University of Oxford with membership limited to 12 undergraduates. It is named in honour of Piers Gaveston, favourite and supposed lover of King Edward II of England. While some have described it as an extreme club that hosts secret events which include large amounts of drugs and sex, others have said that the society's events during the 1990s were not as debauched or scandalous as the media portrayed. Claims have been made of events including mass drug-taking and live sex shows.

The club's motto is "Fane non memini ne audisse unum alterum ita dilixisse", which translates approximately to "Truly, none remember hearing of a man enjoying another so much" or, "Certainly I do not remember that I have heard of any man who loved another like this."
We're reminded of the initiation rituals to the all-male 'Skull and Bones' cult at Yale University that the Bushes and John Kerry were members of.

While #PigGate is producing some hilarious reactions among the British public, let's not forget that the debauchery practised by Cameron and his kind are indicative of the psychology of those in power. The cost, to them, of wearing a 'mask of sanity', as psychologist Harvey Cleckley termed it, is that they must regularly take 'vacations into filth' to relieve themselves of the 'burden'- from their perspective - of pretending to be human.

Regarding the initiation rituals of various 'elites', they serve the purpose of 'binding' them to secret societies, clubs and cults that both reward and control their subjects over the course of their future careers. It may be worth considering whether this information is being made public now in order to exert pressure on Cameron and his government; a little reminder, perhaps, that 'we can destroy you'...

Echoes of the Holocaust: Israeli leaders pleased with Europe's cruelty toward refugees

A scene from Budapest earlier this month; Hungary has responded in a brutal manner to refugees fleeing war.
As most of the world looks on in horror at Europe's atrocious response to refugees escaping war and persecution in the Middle East and Africa, some Israeli officials are quietly reveling in the chaos.

Dore Gold, director general of the Israeli foreign ministry, expressed optimism that the refugee influx will shift Europe to the right, making it more sympathetic to Israel's "security" justification for its ongoing colonization of Palestine.

"Israel always faced the problem in the past that its national security perspective was completely out of sync with how Europeans were viewing the emergence of the European community and the borderless world that was emerging," the American-born hardliner told The Jerusalem Post.

"In the European models that existed 25 or 30 years ago, it is kind of difficult to hear an Israeli argument. But now things may be beginning to change a little," posited Gold.

"The European perspective is beginning to sound a little bit more like Israel's perspective on security issues, compared to what it was in the past."

Comment: After the false-flag attacks of 9/11 struck the US, Benjamin Netanyahu came out and said, "This is good for Israel". It's as though any event or world development that construes Muslims as the problem, or supports the idea of the 'the Muslim Problem', is a 'good thing for Israel' simply because it will help rally people to Israel's side. Ironically, this is much the same as Jews were considered 'the Jewish Problem' in the 1930s.

Look at what happened to who considered them so. The same fate awaits those who have not learned from history.

The big lie about Russian forces in Syria


Russian food, tents and medical supplies being unloaded in Latakia, western Syria
Washington continues using Islamic State and other takfiri terrorists as US proxy foot soldiers, waging naked aggression on Syria, largely affecting millions of civilians, creating a human flood of internally and externally displaced people along with mass slaughter and destruction.

Obama, John Kerry and other US officials firmly oppose Russia legitimately aiding its Syrian ally in need - providing political support as well as military weapons, munitions, equipment and technology.

The grand deception about Russian forces and warplanes operating in Syria persists. It's one of many Big Lies circulating to vilify Putin. Moscow has been forthrightly candid all along - explaining its obligation to supply Syria with contractually agreed on weapons, the only nation providing humanitarian aid along with UN efforts.

The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said over 12 million Syrians need help, larger numbers daily, desperate people enduring deplorable conditions and treatment, Obama's proxy war using IS and other takfiri terrorist foot soldiers fully responsible.


Gaddafi prophesied Europe's refugee crisis: 'The Mediterranean will become a sea of chaos'


Muammar Gaddafi, assassinated spiritual leader of the Libyan Jamahiriya
Millions of refugees storming European borders have definitely come as a surprise to Western politicians. They would not have, if the West only listened to what Libya's leader Muammar Gaddafi said months before he was brutally executed.

In fact, some of these people would not be seeking shelter in Europe if their homes were not destroyed as a result of short-sighted aggressive Western policies.

In March 2011, Gaddafi warned that without unified and stable Libya there would be no one to control countless migrants from Africa and the Middle East from fleeing to Europe. Unlike Western leaders, he apparently understood that millions, not thousands will come, should Tripoli fall.

"There are millions of blacks who could come to the Mediterranean to cross to France and Italy, and Libya plays a role in security in the Mediterranean," he told the France 24 television station.

Comment: Indeed, Gaddafi said to Italian newspaper Il Giornale in March 2011:
He also repeated that his government had represented a bulwark against Islamic extremism, which could now be unleashed, triggering more serious unrest in the region.

"If, instead of a stable government which guarantees security, these bandits linked to Bin Laden take control, the Africans will move en masse towards Europe and the Mediterranean will become a sea of chaos," he said.
The spiritual leader of Libya had a habit of telling it like it is:

Pwned: Russia deftly trolls Cameron's Twitter account after British govt sez Corbyn is 'threat to National Security'


From Russia, with Truth, love, and humor
David Cameron must be used to being mercilessly trolled on line by now - but it's not every day he gets sent snarky messages on behalf of Vladimir Putin.

Among the countless Tweets mocking Cameron's over-the-top warning about Labour being a 'security threat' was one from the Russian Embassy.

They said:
"Just imagine UK media headlines if Russian President called a leading opposition party threat to national security?"

And not satisfied with such world class trolling, the Russian ambassador to the UK followed the tweet up with a full-throated endorsement for Jeremy Corbyn.

Alexander Yakovenko wrote:
"Congratulations to Jeremy Corbyn. Hope for positive change in terms of debate, including on our relations."
Mr Corbyn has previously hinted he'd like to see Britain pursue more cordial diplomatic relations with Russia.


Vladimir Putin's realpolitik: Foreign policy objectives, desires for alliance with U.S. in opposing jihadists

In 2000, Putin's hard line against religious separatism became a leading factor in his electoral victory.
On September 4th, Russia's President Vladimir Putin restated, as he has many times before, that he seeks a U.S.- Russian alliance to overcome the global Islamic jihad movement, in Syria, Iraq, and everywhere.

Then, on Tuesday September 8th, Yahoo News bannered, "Austria joins growing voices that say Assad must be part of Syrian solution," and reported that Austria's Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz said: "In my opinion the priority is the fight against terror. This will not be possible without powers such as Russia and Iran." German Economic News noted then that, "Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia Margallo had already called on Monday for negotiations with Assad to end the war."

However, the U.S. government is strongly opposed to accepting Putin's offer of an alliance to overcome Islamic jihad.

Putin's foreign-policy objectives are consistent; and his latest turn fits with all that has preceded, which has been his single-minded focus, ever since he first became Russia's leader in 2000: to defeat the global threat of Islamic jihad, which has been the chief military concern for Russia itself, ever since the First Chechen War, during 1994-96, radicalized the predominantly Sunni (Saudi-based) Muslim Chechen Republic, to separate themselves from the predominantly Orthodox Catholic Russia. By the time of Putin's contest for the Presidency in 2000, Putin's hard line against religious separatism became a leading factor in his electoral victory.

Comment: Unlike the US, living in its reality bubble and (so far) not experiencing the consequences of its global meddling, Putin has had real, hard experience with religious terrorism.

Full Assad interview with Russian media: 'Westerners are crying for the Syrian refugees with one eye, aiming their guns with the other'

In a rare interview with Russian media outlets, RT among them, Syrian leader Bashar Assad spoke about global and domestic terrorism threats, the need for a united front against jihadism, Western propaganda about the refugee crisis and ways to bring peace to his war-torn nation.

Question 1: Mr. President, thank you from the Russian media, from RT, from Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Channel 1, Russia 24, RIA Novosti, and NTV channel, for giving us all the opportunity to talk to you during this very critical phase of the crisis in Syria, where there are many questions that need to be addressed on where exactly the political process to achieve peace in Syria is heading, what's the latest developments on the fight against ISIL, and the status of the Russian and Syrian partnership, and of course the enormous exodus of Syrian refugees that has been dominating headlines in Europe.

Now, the crisis in Syria is entering its fifth year. You have defied all predictions by Western leaders that you would be ousted imminently, and continue to serve today as the President of the Syrian Arab Republic. Now, there has been a lot of speculation recently caused by reports that officials from your government met with officials from your adversary Saudi Arabia that caused speculation that the political process in Syria has entered a new phase, but then statements from Saudi Arabia that continue to insist on your departure suggest that in fact very little has changed despite the grave threat that groups like ISIL pose far beyond Syria's borders.

So, what is your position on the political process? How do you feel about power sharing and working with those groups in the opposition that continue to say publically that there can be no political solution in Syria unless that includes your immediate departure? Have they sent you any signal that they are willing to team up with you and your government? In addition to that, since the beginning of the crisis in Syria, many of those groups were calling to you to carry out reforms and political change. But is such change even possible now under the current circumstances with the war and the ongoing spread of terror in Syria?

Assad to West: If you're worried about refugees, stop supporting terrorists

Europe is "not dealing with the cause" of the current refugee crisis, Syrian President Bashar Assad said in an interview with Russian media, RT among them, adding that all Syrian people want is "security and safety."

"It's not about that Europe didn't accept them or embrace them as refugees, it's about not dealing with the cause. If you are worried about them, stop supporting terrorists. That's what we think regarding the crisis. This is the core of the whole issue of refugees.

"If we ask any Syrian today about what they want, the first thing they would say - 'We want security and safety for every person and every family'," the Syrian president said, adding that political forces, whether inside or outside the government "should unite around what the Syrian people want."

Comment: Assad is absolutely right. The reason people are fleeing Syria, Libya, and other Middle Eastern countries is because of terrorists like ISIS. Unfortunately, the West has not only shown very little desire to truly stop those groups but they're also likely helping to support them.
