TACOMA, Washington | Tue Nov 6, 2012 11:09pm EST

(Reuters) – A U.S. soldier’s testimony appeared to cast doubt on Tuesday upon the U.S. government’s case that a decorated colleague acted entirely alone during a killing spree that left 16 villagers dead near a remote Army base in Afghanistan earlier this year.

Military prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Staff Sergeant Robert Bales, accusing him of killing the villagers – mostly women and children – when he ventured out of his camp on two revenge-fueled forays over a five-hour period in March.

Testifying at a pre-trial hearing to determine whether Bales can be sent to a court martial, Private First Class Derek Guinn said he was told by Afghan guards that two U.S. soldiers were seen entering the compound in the early hours of March 11, and one was seen leaving again.

But Guinn, who spoke to the guards through an interpreter, said he personally did not see anyone leaving or entering Camp Belambay.

His testimony was at odds with the U.S. Army prosecutors’ case – supported by several witnesses on Monday – that Bales, 39, left and entered twice on his own, and was solely responsible for the Afghans’ deaths.

Bales, a veteran of four combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, faces 16 counts of premeditated murder and six counts of attempted murder as well as charges of assault and wrongfully possessing and using steroids and alcohol while deployed.

The shootings in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province marked the worst case of civilian slaughter blamed on an individual U.S. soldier since the Vietnam War and eroded already strained U.S.-Afghan ties after more than a decade of conflict in the country.

POSSIBLY SUFFERING PTSD

The apparently contradictory testimony may give Bales’ defense team, which declined to make an opening statement at the start of proceedings Monday, a chance to fault the prosecution’s case and advance a theory that Bales did not act alone. Lawyers representing Bales have not said what their defense will be.

But lead civilian defense attorney John Henry Browne has suggested over the past few months that Bales may not have acted alone and may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Witnesses from the Afghan villages where the alleged killing spree took place are set to testify on Friday via video link to the hearing at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state, which was expected to last two weeks. Some villagers have said that more than one U.S. soldier was present during the attacks.

Private Guinn told the hearing he heard shots coming from the direction of the village where Bales is accused of committing his first shootings, somewhere between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. local time. He said sporadic gunfire, which sounded like single shots in clusters rather than machine gun fire, lasted about 35 minutes.

In answering questions from prosecution and defense lawyers, Guinn said it was the first time he had heard shots while on guard, but was not panicked as they did not appear to be aimed at the base. He said he and a fellow soldier shot a flare to illuminate the area where the shots were heard, but he could not see anything unusual.

Guinn’s testimony was the first notable discrepancy from the version of events laid out by military prosecutors on Monday.

In the first session of the hearing, lead prosecutor Lieutenant Colonel Jay Morse said Bales alone was responsible for the deaths, in two premeditated attacks. He showed the court a video taken from a surveillance balloon apparently of Bales returning to the base for a second time, just before 5 a.m.

Further U.S. servicemen will testify at the hearing over the next two days, with Afghan witnesses scheduled to be heard from Friday and the following week.

Understanding the US-Israeli business of war

Press TV: Understanding the US-Israeli Business of War

 

By Gordon Duff and Press TV

American counter-intelligence officials intercepted their video transmissions, television of killings of Americans broadcast directly from American made sniper rifles modified with Israeli video and transmitter capabilities.”

Related Interviews:
Today, Israel captured another boat bound for Gaza in international waters, an act of piracy, and an illegal blockade. Passengers, which include diplomats and parliamentarians were “tasered” and beaten. They are now enjoying Israeli “pirate” hospitality.
Israeli’s do a lot of spitting and kicking, at least when they have their charges hog-tied and outnumbered.We have a number of questions for our Israeli friends, questions from 1967, questions about who attacked who, how many Egyptian prisoners were executed in Sinai, how many Americans were murdered on the USS Liberty, why Israeli teams were overheard planning the 1983 Marine Barracks bombing in Beirut, questions only those who ask the hard questions know of.  One IDF sniper team has spread stories around Israel that they killed 400 American troops inside Iraq.

One day we may have questions for the American officials that knew of this and chose to keep it from the American people.

CAPTURED VIDEO SNIPER RIFLE USED

American counter-intelligence officials intercepted their video transmissions, television of killings of Americans broadcast directly from American made sniper rifles modified with Israeli video and transmitter capabilities.

Israel actually posted it on YouTube, part of Israel’s “Google” operation.

We have their equipment they left behind, fingerprints identify German passport holders, employees rebuilding Iraq with American money and spilling American blood instead.

The Germans are very generous in giving out passports to terrorists.

I have the video and we will be releasing it as intended, Israeli origin, showing the cold-blooded murder of 400 Americans, carefully filmed and edited in Tel Aviv.

Wikileaks had the video for years but was told by Israel not to allow its release. Assange was cheerfully compliant.

Similarly, Israel has one of the lifeboats from the USS Liberty on display, filled with machinegun holes, a trophy of murder, but a reminder that the entire military of Israel given an entire day, bombers, fighters, torpedo boats and submarines could not sink one American ship.

The Captain, William McGonagle, Medal of Honor winner, testified at length that this was an act of war against the United States. He is dead but surviving crewmembers and his record survive.

Therefore, when a car bomb exploded in Beirut, another in Baghdad and another in Damascus, another in Pakistan and one more in Afghanistan, all so close together, Israel made their message clear.

There were more bombings, spreading across Africa, same signature, just like the Church bombing in Alexandria.

Perhaps it is more polite to bomb churches than to paint “Jesus is a monkey” on them as has been done to Christian churches across Israel. This is, at least, far better treatment than Mosques receive.

Nobody asks the hard questions. They get close but never on the right track. The real question is very simple. Why is there always war?

The answer is simple. War has always been a business, it is just that now, it is the “negotiation method of choice” for all other businesses. There would be no world economies, no oil, no minerals, no narcotics, no crime, no terrorism, no weapon, nothing but peaceful people living fulfilling lives.

Nobody wants that, it is considered a “poor business model.”

There have always been armies but two recent trends, the focus on unaccountable “special operations” units, often military arms of multinational political and economic groups above any law or organization and “privatized security,” mercenaries that make wars “invisible” to everyone but the victims.

Complicating the issue further, is destruction of the world’s moral center, where laws meant to defend rights of the individual are now bought and paid for, twisted into “policies” that justify military action based on perceived threats.

Even crazier, there is actually an industry that creates non-existent “perceived threats” on order. If you want a war, simply buy an “intelligence assessment,” results determined in advance, make sure it is subjected to no scrutiny, wind up the press and send out the troops.

The most prevalent methodology for destabilization is the car bomb. Car bombs are actually designed by national governments and have used primitive explosives, military grade demolitions and, when needed, 5th generation fusion devices that can flatten a square kilometer or cause a minor explosion but spread radiation sickness that won’t be detected for years.

Evidence of these weapons has been discovered in Russia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. Oh yes, we do not want to forget, two such weapons were used against the Japanese in 1945.
One of my favorite instances of nuclear car bombs occurred in the city of Rostov in Russia when a postal van with a half-ton capacity flattened three huge apartment blocks. The government reported that the “device” used contained the equivalent of 300 tons of TNT. (Source CNN)

This was one postal van, considering the type of explosive claimed, it would have taken 1,200 postal vans to do the job. It would have been difficult to part that many in an empty one square kilometer parking lot but no questions were asked even though Russian officials very purposefully made it clear they had been “nuked.”

In Oslo, Andrew Berwick, an acclaimed Zionist reactionary exploded a car bomb before killing 77 children with the help of friends in the Norwegian police.

His tiny Opel held a bomb requiring nine 55 gallon barrels to contain. Unreleased footage of the destruction shows a building some distance away with an entire side vaporized.

Similarly, in Fallujah, Iraq, Dr. Chris Busby, while investigating the use of Depleted Uranium, a dangerous cancer causing material widely used by the United States in most of its munitions processes, from bombs and shells to simple rifle bullets, discovered, not signs of DU but of Uranium 235.

America had used fission-based nuclear weapons in Iraq, hard scientific proof, samples of fissionable material has been gathered from the region.

It has also been gathered from the people, their bodies, their hair, and, of course, there is a wealth of evidence and witness testimony that leads to the reasonable conclusion that the United States has used dozens of “nuclear demolitions” and “micro-nukes” throughout the Middle East.

The use of these weapons, along with the cluster bombs and phosphorous weapons used against civilians in Gaza and other regions, certainly Libya, perhaps Syria, Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, how many others, we may never know, are officially war crimes and clear violations of the Geneva Convention.

Earlier we began talking about war for profit. A critical aspect of the war in Afghanistan was the prime mover, retaliation against Afghanistan for its supposed involvement in 9/11.

Over a decade later, no training facilities have been found, one poor “plotter” after years of being drugged, brainwashed and tortured is the only “smoking gun” evidence that Israel was not responsible for 9/11.

Give me six months and I could have David Cameron believing he is a parakeet.

No, there is another issue, special operations and privatization. All eliminate the accountability that legitimate armies have.

Since the beginning of time, it has been a battle to keep warfare between armies, maintain discipline and limit looting, rape and troops turning on each other like ravening dogs.

The Afghan armies and police forces, with well over a decade of training and a trillion US dollars spent, not only kill their American allies but also turn their weapons and ammunition over to those they were hired to fight.

America’s military has fared only slightly better, infiltrated by street gangs, military bases around the world are subject dens of murder and rape, life on an American military base can actually be more dangerous than any combat zone.

What has “raised the bar” on the permanent and endemic violence our new form of warfare has brought about has been the cult of secrecy.

The idea that special operations troops are not meant to be the most skilled or intelligent but the most morally flexible, the most easily coerced and, when they “learn too much,” the most easily murdered and cast aside is part of what is never mentioned in training.

We have seen this time and again, as with the coincidences that caused so many Navy SEAL deaths after the disaster at Abbottabad, a helicopter crash and the killing of an unarmed old man, another imaginary death for Osama bin Laden.

Then a day later, 22 Navy SEALS under circumstances considered tactically impossible were supposed to have died in a helicopter crash. History has already erased that, the cover stories were written in advance and the noticeable lack of curiosity and need to avenge these murders has not gone unnoticed.

We count every lie, every drone attack is carefully cataloged, the grief of thousands of families demands it.

We will also ask an accounting. I can only hope the indifference to murdering children that millions of Americans have shown over the past decade will subside and, despite the media barrage of monstrosity, there will be an awakening of freedom, of humanity and even one or two folks actually reading those holy books they own but seldom open.

www.yourmilitaryvoter.us: Your vote…make it count

www.yourmilitaryvoter.us: Your vote…make it count

For more than 12 months now we have been working on a new website which will help voters get a handle on the candidates running for national office.  There are thousands of websites on the Internet that provide information about the candidates, many with an obvious bias, but also many that are non-partisan. Our goal was to build a site which would provide links that would help sift through all the information and provide:

  • Voting record of the incumbents
  • Sources which provide funding for their re-election bid (follow the money)
  • The key committee memberships each holds
  • A link to their personal website (s)
  • Photograph of the candidate
  • Political party platforms
  • PLUS information on the Executive and Legislative branches of government

As to the challengers, it was far more difficult to dig up information that would be of value in judging how theymight vote if they were elected, but we have provided the key referral websites, photo (if available), and information leading to the sources of their funding.

We felt an appropriate name for the site would be www.yourmilitaryvoter.us, and hoped to have it completed in time so our troops overseas who may not be privy to all the information we are fed every day, would have a way to find valid information on the candidates. We had to hustle, relying on all Veterans, Veteran network programs, and social media to complete the project and now have to spread the word about the website. We hope that armed with the facts, Veterans and others can make their votes count, particularly our troops overseas who may not have the access to information we have here at home.

We have read however, that there has been an effort to hinder the voting process for those stationed out of the country as many states have restricted voter registration and voting deadlines in their states. This is not fair to those defending our right to vote, and we must all voice our outrage over any attempt to limit the military vote.

Here’s some of the details about our website and why it should be read by anyone headed to the polls to vote. Many of us have never read a complete “party platform”. The party platform is a set of standards that the major political parties adopt at their National Convention which determines how the party stands on individual issues…foreign aid, abortion, education, Veteran’s issues, defense, etc. Since the incumbents have voting records to verify how they stand on a particular issue, understanding how they will vote on future issues is pretty easy to determine, however, a challenger may not be so easy to pin down; Hence the need to refer to the political party platform.

As most of us have learned from years of elections, listening to candidates, and then tracking them through the course of their political careers, we don’t always get what we bargained for. Many major decisions are influenced by special interest lobbyists, which always have money to spread around to the political coffers of those in office. The longer a politician is in office, the more likely they are to bend to the influence of money. The Supreme Court has ruled that that campaign donations equal “freedom of speech”, and therefore moneyhas become the greatest problem we face and the most difficult problem to overcome. It has also become the biggest stumbling block to altering the status quo and to rid Congress and other elected officials from office.

Listed on our website are the platforms of the political parties that we were able to find. On the smaller parties, we couldn’t find much other than “propaganda” as spelled out on their websites, so we decided it was better to substitute that information rather than go without. Other parties like the Socialists and the Communist Parties have stated their positions which have become fairly well known. I don’t believe anyone in the US could name all 54 political parties we have inside the borders of our country…that’s right; I said 54! They are all listed under the “Reference Websites” link of www.yourmilitaryvoter.us. Check ‘em out and see the positions of those voting for and against you.

While I will always question government, I hope every person, before going into the voting booth, will ask themselves, “if the 2008 financial meltdown was the largest financial catastrophe since the Great Depression”, why did a President, hired to solve the nation’s collapsing financial stability waste $5 trillion dollars of taxpayer,  money run off on a tangent to force Obamacare (now estimated to cost near $2.7 Trillion) down our throats, dump a trillion dollars into “shovel-ready jobs” (which Mr. Obama later said “weren’t so shovel ready”), invested hundreds of billions of dollars into 16 failed green energy boondoggles to reward campaign contributors, and issued a mindboggling 140 executive orders to put burden after burden on the private sector economy. The true and ONLY focus should have been job creation, which is the only way out of the hole!

What we are left with is an economy that is stagnant and includes 24 million unemployed or underemployed, $40,000 devaluation of family wealth, 47 million people on food stamps (15% of the total population), and the average wage of those working lowered by $4500 per year. We have no leadership in Washington and an economy quickly resembling the failed economies of Europe, and with most American feeling our best days are behind us.

Throughout the year I have written about the importance of the 2012 election. We are a divided nation. In 2008, the voters loudly proclaimed “we want change”, and elected Barack Obama as President. With total control over the government…a super majority in the Senate and a majority in the House of Representatives, we have seen government run a muck. Certainly the events leading up to the financial meltdown in 2008 didn’t happen overnight but with origins starting in the Clinton Presidency years and compounded by the Bush Presidency. The meltdown started with the really dumb idea that “everyone deserved to purchase a house”, whether they could afford it or not.

Most of us have not heard about GSE’s, and much of the finger pointing needs to be pointed in that direction. What are GSE’s? Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs) which essentially control the mortgage market.  Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae are the three main GSEs. When someone gets a mortgage from a bank or mortgage broker, that lender can hold the mortgage, but more often sells it to a GSE.

The best analysis I was able to find and one which cuts to the chase of the problem is by T.J. Hancock (Cornell University). His analysis is said to be, by far and away, the best of the best in easy-to-understand language of how our country got into the mess we are in today. It will also help us to understand how failure to address the real culprits of the meltdown doomed the era of Hope and Change to the “scrap-heap of history”.

“GSEs get the money to buy mortgages from selling bonds to investors…you, me, mutual funds, etc. Because GSEs are linked to the US federal government, which has the safest credit rating in the world (currently), investors buy those bonds while demanding low interest payments in return. Someone who gets a mortgage pays much higher interest rates than GSEs do. GSEs therefore raise money at low rates and purchase mortgages that pay higher rates. They keep some of the mortgages, and resell the rest just as the banks did with them. One big difference… when Fannie Mae, for example, resells a mortgage it has purchased — it typically guarantees the payments. Whether Fannie keeps the mortgages, or guarantees and resells them, it assumes the risks that the mortgage holder may not be able to repay, or that the interest rate environment could change, leaving it stuck with worse-than-market payment terms”.

So it is time for all of us to put away the canned sales pitches we hear every day from politicians; the spin we get from radio talk-show hosts and political parties; and get our heads out of the sand. Now that we are $16 trillion dollars in debt as a nation and headed over the financial cliff, we can easily see that government is not the solution but that government is the cause of the problem.

Before everyone gets into a tizzy that this is some right wing rant, let’s start with the premise that the financial meltdown could not have happened had WE THE PEOPLE not been so damn greedy, and I mean ALL THE PEOPLE.

Everyone is to blame for the mess we’re in, but the buck stops at the desk of the President!

From those complicit in obtaining mortgages they couldn’t afford, to the realtors reaping commission from the escalating value of homes they were selling, to excessive bonuses paid to bankers who were “doctoring the credit applications”, to the builders building homes at ridiculously inflated prices, to the Wall Street Fat Cats who were packaging mortgages, and to the political hacks who were in charge of oversight who looked the other way as long as the campaign contributions continued to roll in. Everyone is to blame.

“If GSEs obey standard accounting rules, investors would know right away if the point of diminishing returns is being reached. As we learned this decade with the Enron, WorldComm, and Bernie Madoff scandals, if a company wildly violates regulatory rules, management could paint nearly any picture it designs, at least until something radically changes to make the problem impossible to hide. By far the largest and most active of the GSEs…Fannie Mae would put the entire economic system at risk if its management pulled a Madoff. Because Fannie is government sponsored, that could never happen unless some very powerful force assisted the cover up, either overtly or inadvertently”.

In the case of the housing crisis, that power, as President Clinton has even recognized, was the Democrat party. Democrats united to steadfastly resist many repeated efforts to effectively increase transparency with regard to GSE accounting and mortgage market activities. In a nutshell, as Congressman Artur Davis stated — who was one of those Democrats on the House Financial Service Committee — they were worried that increased transparency would slow GSEs’ mortgage buying, because investors might stop giving money to GSEs so freely and at such low interest rates. In Clinton’s own words…

 “I think that the responsibility that the Democrats had may rest more in resisting any efforts by Republicans in the Congress, or by me when I was President, to put some standards and tighten up a little on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.” September 25, 2008

“Like a lot of my Democratic colleagues I was too slow to appreciate the recklessness of Fannie and Freddie. I defended their efforts to encourage affordable homeownership when in retrospect I should have heeded the concerns raised by their regulator in 2004. Frankly, I wish my Democratic colleagues would admit when it comes to Fannie and Freddie, we were wrong.” – Congressman Artur Davis (D-AL), September 30, 2008

The biggest hoax perpetrated on the American public however, is the spins being dished out that the financial meltdown was caused by Bush and the greedy rich.

It was caused by all of us. In our system of checks and balances form of government, one should look directly at Congress for failing in their fiduciary duties to perform OVERSIGHT. In those days, Congress was controlled totally by Democrats. Even Barack Obama has tried to deflect the issue when in fact he was part of “the posse at the hanging”. He was in Congress and was among the Democrats and a heck of a lot of Republicans that simply turned a blind idea to the forthcoming financial Armageddon that hit in 2008. Instead of standing up to accept some of the Congressional blame, the President said…

“I don’t mind cleaning up the mess that some other folks made, that’s what I signed up to do” – Barack Obama (D-IL), October 20, 2009…YES, but he has not, and cannot figure out how to do it…and throwing more money at it isn’t a solution.

No…when he took office under the battle cry of Hope and Change, transparency, clean government, tossing  out the influence of special interest lobby groups, all we the people got was more of the same. In fact we have a whole plethora of those crooks now running the show under the guise of Czars. They were not approved by the Senate and are not recognized by any Constitutional legislation.

As Mr Hancock points out, “to demonstrate just how bad things were, between 1994 and 2004, Fannie executives improperly reported $10.6 billion of earnings. Franklin Raines, the Clinton-appointed CEO, received over $90 million. Jamie Gorelick — a top Clinton Administration lawyer whom he appointed in 1997 to be Fannie Mae vice chairman despite having no formal financial experience – received over $26 million. Just by way of reference, in 2002, 21 senior Fannie Mae executives received over $1 million each”.

“Just before Mr. Clinton curiously appointed Jamie Gorelick to the lucrative Fannie Mae post in 1997, she had authored a very significant and controversial legal document that came into sharp focus on 9-11. Her policy, which became known as the Gorelick Wall established barriers that prevented federal anti-terrorist criminal investigators from accessing various federal records and databases…one of the top causes for the 9-11 intelligence failure. And Jamie Gorelick’s curious appointments did not stop with Fannie Mae… Democrats selected her to serve on the 9-11 Commission; the official government investigation into what happened from an intelligence standpoint, and why. She was in the perfect spot to head off the Gorelick Wall from being a cause celeb in the 9-11 Commission’s final report”.

Folks, these are trying times. This is the era of sound bites and “gotcha”. This is a time when there is little if any investigative journalism, and where journalism has an obvious left of center leaning, where “talking points” of the administration are often dished out in unison by a press corps that has lost touch with the great journalists of US history, and then reported as fact without verification.

Today, for the most part we have journalists in all media, failing to hold our political representatives accountable for their actions. Great journalists have gone the way of horse-drawn carriages. The GREATS of history, starting with John Peter Zenger in 1735, to Ben Franklin, Joseph Pulitzer, Edward R. Murrow, Tim Russert, Walter Cronkite, Seymour Hersh, are down to but a few including Bob Woodward (Woodward and Bernstein fame), Robert Novak, Jim Lehrer, and Brit Hume. If you want real news along with the TRUTH, you have to get it for yourself and you have to dig deep.

Leading up to the 2012 election, I will trying to be as informative as possible on the issues and candidates, by pointing you in the right direction to verify facts, so we don’t continue to fall prey to the propaganda to which we are subjected.

CREWS: Homosexuals in the military demand special privileges

CREWS: Homosexuals in the military demand special privileges

Toleration doesn’t cut both ways

By Col. Ron Crews

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/sep/25/homosexuals-in-the-military-demand-special-privile/

The American armed forces exist to defend our nation, not to conduct social science lab experiments in which our troops serve as human subjects. Try telling that to this administration.

The first anniversary of the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” Sept. 20, has come and gone. Now, there is mounting evidence that proves our warnings were not idle chatter. The threat to freedom posed by this radical sexual experiment on our military is real: It is grave and it is growing.

Activists inside and outside our government who pushed the repeal have deployed a smoke screen around the fact that once the military was forced to exalt homosexuality in the ranks, the all-too-foreseen consequence reared its ugly head.

Senior military officials have allowed personnel in favor of repeal to speak to media while those who have concerns have been ordered to be silent. Two airmen were publicly harassed in a Post Exchange food court as they were privately discussing their concerns about the impact of repeal. A chaplain was encouraged by military officials to resign his commission unless he could “get in line with the new policy,” demonstrating no tolerance for that chaplain’s religious viewpoint. Another chaplain was threatened with early retirement, and then reassigned to be more “closely supervised” because he had expressed concerns with the policy change, again demonstrating no tolerance for that chaplain’s religious viewpoint.

At an officer training service school, a male serviceman sexually harassed another male serviceman through text messages, emails, phone calls and in-person confrontations. The harassing male insisted the two would “make a great couple.” The harassed serviceman reported the harassment, but the command failed to take disciplinary action.

Service members engaged in homosexual behavior protested a service school’s open-door policy for all students that prohibited the closing of room doors for the purpose of hiding sexual behavior. The protesters claimed that they had a right to participate in sexual behavior with their same-sex roommates.

A senior chaplain was stripped of his authority over the chapel under his charge because, in accordance with federal law, he proclaimed the chapel to be a “sacred space” where marriage ceremonies would only be between one man and one woman.

The Navy has allowed sailors openly engaged in homosexual behavior to choose their bunkmates. Imagine in this new age of “tolerance” if a sailor asked to be moved from a close-quarters berthing area because of his concern about another sailor’s sexual appetites. We already know what would happen, because tolerance has never been a two-way street.

Obviously, the recent “study” (aka propaganda) claiming that the repeal went off without a hitch should be shredded post-haste. It has no connection to reality.

This is just the first wave in the first year of the assault on the constitutionally protected freedom of our service members. Remember, the groups that forced their sexual experiment on the armed forces represent the lesbian, homosexual, bisexual and transgender community. It’s only a matter of time before a man who claims to be transgender demands to be placed with women during training, in the showers and in the barracks. The women in the units will have no recourse, especially if their objection to living, changing, bathing and bunking with a man is based on sincerely held religious beliefs. They would have two choices: Either accept this outrageous imposition silently or be charged with bigotry, hatred, intolerance and every other name the advocates of this agenda can throw at them. Neither choice is acceptable. When “sensitivity training” is in full force, these women just might face discipline and punitive separation merely for speaking up and requesting a reasonable measure of privacy and protection of their religious freedom.

This outrageous social science lab experiment could have been easily prevented. The Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty has worked closely with members of Congress to enact legislation, which has already passed the House, to protect freedom of conscience for chaplains and those they serve.

Even more outrageous is that we have to ask Congress to protect freedom of conscience for chaplains and those who serve in the military. The fact that Congress excluded a religious freedom protection amendment (authored in partnership with Alliance Defending Freedom), to the repeal sends a clear message that our current leadership does not consider, much less respect, the constitutional implications of their actions while they bow in allegiance to the powerful and aggressive lobby of those who supported the repeal.

Col. Ron Crews, a retired Army chaplain, is executive director for Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty.

Former Marine, Brandon Raub’s Struggle to Exercise his Free Speech against the Zio-Banksters

Former Marine, Brandon Raub’s Struggle to Exercise his Free Speech against the Zio-Banksters

http://www.davidduke.com/?p=36247

 Sep 17, 2012 |

by Jeff Davis. Some history buffs may be familiar with the Zio-Soviet regime their habit of throwing political dissidents into mental institutions. I’m sure most Americans would say “That could never happen here in the US.” Well, it has happened here in the US, and not just once.

An article on The Blaze reports “26-year-old former U.S. Marine Brandon Raub was released from a psychiatric facility via a judge’s order, who ruled that the government had no legal grounds to hold him.”

“…Raub’s lead attorney and president of the Rutherford Institute, gave his first interview following his client’s release to discuss the case.”

“Whitehead told Beck that he and his organization are planning to sue… ‘We are getting ready to file a civil lawsuit…because [Raub] has been put through hell for a week,’ said Whitehead….”

“On August 20, Raub was sentenced to up to 30 days in a psychiatric facility after he was detained by federal law enforcement on August 16 over some Facebook posts that criticized the U.S. government and questioned the official story behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He also referred to ‘starting a revolution.’”

“Whitehead said that veterans have since been contacting him from across the country claiming they too were victims of wrongful detention in psychiatric institutes like Raub. Apparently, there are civil commitment laws in other states as well, he said.”

“’It happens. There’s about 20,000 civil commitments alone in Virginia each year,’ he added.’

“It was actually Raub’s mother, who took to Facebook in a rage after he son was taken by federal and local law enforcement officers, that sounded the alarm and made the entire country aware of his situation.”

“’Did they have a warrant for his arrest?’ Beck asked.”

“’No warrant for his arrest and no search warrant,’ Whitehead replied. ‘They haven’t [charged him with a crime] and they’re not going to.’”

“Stunned, Beck asked how this could take place in the United States of America, where the Constitution provides protections from such things, most notably the First Amendment.’

“’Is this America,’ the attorney said. ‘That’s what I keep asking.’”

It should be noted that none of Brandon Raub’s posts were inciting violence and that it’s possible to have a peaceful revolution, much like the Tea Party is attempting at this time. Many supporters of Ron Paul called his last two presidential campaigns “The Ron Paul Revolution”.

The Don’t Tread On Me blog reports: “A judge today ordered the release of a Marine Corps veteran being detained as a psychiatric patient after concerns over his Facebook postings. After an hour-long hearing, Circuit Judge W. Allan Sharrett said an involuntary commitment petition issued against Brandon J. Raub was invalid because it contained no allegation or basis to holding him.”

“….Facebook postings by Raub generally involved impassioned pleas for a return to American ideals of freedom and independence but also speak of betrayal by elected leaders. ‘Your leaders are planning to merge the United States into a one-world banking system,’ he wrote. (Well, actually, they are, and they don’t make any particular secret of the fact.) ‘They want to put computer chips in you… these men have evil hearts. We gave them the keys to our country. We were not vigilant with our republic.’”

“Raub served in the Marines from 2005 until 2011 and was a combat engineer sergeant. He said he operates a home-based silver numismatic-coin business.”

It seems as though our government reacts especially harshly with dissidents who call for replacing the two party system and who demand a return to the silver standard. That combination of two things seems to put you at the top of their target list for some reason.

You really wonder sometimes how the secret police choose the people they victimize, since there are so many out there saying and posting the same things. Maybe it’s some kind of lottery. If so, Sergeant Raub was the unlucky “winner” of some special unlawful persecution at the hands of the ZioGlobalists who seek to squash any kind of real political dissent in the West.

No ‘Red Line’ for Israel

No ‘Red Line’ for Israel

By Gilad Atzmon

 

Israeli news outlets reported today that President Obama rejected an appeal by Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu to set a specific “red line” to stop any further Iranian uranium enrichment.

According to reports, in an hour-long conversation on Tuesday, Obama deflected Netanyahu’s proposal to make the size of Iran’s stockpile of close-to-bomb-grade uranium the threshold, the crossing of which would trigger a US military strike on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear facilities.

But it seems that, this time at least, President Obama has decided against launching a world war on behalf of the Jewish State and its powerful lobby.

“We need some ability for the President to have decision-making room,” said an American official. “We have a red line, which is a nuclear weapon. We’re committed to that red line.” The meaning of this is simple: America just doesn’t buy the Israeli intelligence reports regarding Iranian intentions.

Israel is not happy. Apparently, the Israelis want to see Iran wiped out – and soon and its officials have already confirmed that such an American guarantee falls far short of the Jewish state’s security needs.

Ynet  reported today that prime minister Netanyahu told reporters this week that “the Obama administration had no ‘moral right’ to restrain Israel from taking military action on its own if it refused to put limits on Iran.” Ynet adds that “the remarks were followed by reports claiming that Obama snubbed Netanyahu’s request to meet during the United Nations General Assembly session in New York this month.”

So it seems that for now, the Obama administration has come to its senses – it has said NO to Jewish pressure.

Of course, this decision is far more likely to be political than ethically or morally driven. Amid the presidential election, Obama has been quick to perceive a window of opportunity that may prove to be a game winner. Obama lets the Republican party and their presidential candidate Mitt Romney operate as Netanyahu’s Sabbath Goyim.  Obama clears the stage to Romney who foolishly and voluntarily pushes for another Israeli war, he lets Romney be a Zionist mouthpiece, the one who scarifies America and American soldiers for Israel.  Consequently, Obama presents himself as a reasonable, sensible and responsible leader– all in all, a ‘real American patriot’.

But, by now, one thing should be clear. Israel, as we now have long known, lacks the military capacity to destroy Iran’s nuclear project and needs America to take care of it. Netanyahu and the Jewish Lobby were convinced they could, ahead of the election, pressure Obama into such a suicidal mission. They were wrong.

We’ve long known that the arrival of Obama did not bring peace. Like those before him, he has surrounded himself with rabid Zionist warmongers. But we can only hope that the penny has now dropped – even if we also know that the penny isn’t worth all that much anymore.

Joe Walsh and the 9/11 cover-up: Jewish power on display

Joe Walsh and the 9/11 cover-up: Jewish power on display

 May 17, 2012 |

http://www.davidduke.com/?p=34028

By Kevin MacDonald. Congressman Joe Walsh has a sure-fire way to end the Palestinian/Israeli conflict: Palestinians move to Jordan, and those who don’t move reconcile themselves to permanent second-class status. As Robert Wright notes,

Offhand, I don’t recall a member of Congress in my lifetime saying anything so grotesquely at odds with American ideals about ethnic relations and for that matter basic human rights. Will the Anti-Defamation League denounce Walsh? Will the American Jewish Committee? Will AIPAC have anything to say about the congressman whose strongly pro-Israel views its newsletter approvingly highlighted? If not, why not? (“Congressman endorses ethnic cleansing, apartheid for Palestinians“; The Atlantic)

Walsh’s proposal contravenes the entire zeitgeist of Jewish intellectual and political activism in the West. It dovetails nicely with Newt Gingrich’s statement during the Republican primaries that the Palestinians already have a state: Jordan. Except that Gingrich apparently would like the Palestinians to be expelled.

The mere fact that Walsh could propose such a thing is a telling sign of Jewish power. There is no other group in the entire world whose permanent subordination could be advocated by a US politician.

But there will be no outrage by Jewish activist organizations, even though they are a major support for utopian multiculturalism in the US and even though they routinely act as arbiter on statements related to Israel by US politicians. The Jabotinskyists are in charge in Israel, and, given Israeli demographic trends favoring the religious and secular ethnonationalists, there is no going back. The Israel Lobby will support whatever Israel does.

Walsh’s statement is a trial balloon—an attempt to get us used to the idea that such a move would be acceptable to the US political establishment, if not the rest of the world. Ideas like this have a great future. In a way, Walsh is simply being realistic. It’s really hard to see any other outcome that would please Israel and its fifth column in the US. Might as well get used to it.

And when the Palestinian question is solved by expulsion, or by voluntarily leaving for Jordan and becoming permanent second-class citizens in Israel, the organized Jewish community must square the circle by continuing to enforce obeisance by US politicians combined with a silenced media.

But that is definitely doable. Here’s another example from a recent article by Christopher Ketcham who convincingly argues that there was huge pressure to prevent media coverage of the Israeli Mossad agents who were caught high-fiving in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 (“What did Israel know in advance of the 9/11 attacks?“).

Before such issues had been fully explored, however, the investigation was shut down. Following what ABC News reported were “high-level negotiations between Israeli and U.S. government officials”, a settlement was reached in the case of the five Urban Moving Systems suspects. Intense political pressure apparently had been brought to bear. The reputable Israeli daily Ha’aretz reported that by the last week of October 2001, some six weeks after the men had been detained, Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage and two unidentified ”prominent New York congressmen” were lobbying heavily for their release. According to a source at ABC News close to the 20/20 report, high-profile criminal lawyer Alan Dershowitz also stepped in as a negotiator on behalf of the men to smooth out differences with the U.S. government. (Dershowitz declined to comment for this article.) And so, at the end of November 2001, for reasons that only noted they had been working in the country illegally as movers, in violation of their visas, the men were flown home to Israel.

What’s incendiary is the idea – supported, though not proven, by several pieces of evidence – that the Israelis did learn something about 9/11 in advance but failed to share all of what they knew with American officials. The questions are disturbing enough to warrant a Congressional investigation. …

Yet none of this information found its way into Congress’s joint committee report on the attacks, and it was not even tangentially referenced in the nearly 600 pages of the 9/11 Commission’s final report. Nor would a single major media outlet track the revelations of The Forward and ABC News to investigate further. “There weren’t even stories saying it was bull***”, says The Forward’s Perelman. “Honestly, I was surprised”. Instead, the story disappeared into the welter of anti-Israel 9/11 conspiracy theories.

So a credible aspect of a very serious attack on the US and an eventual motive for the Iraq war (massively promoted by the Israel Lobby—no wonder the Israelis were happy!) simply disappears from public consciousness, relegated to one of those theories that only crazy anti-Semites believe.

I take it that these two recent examples are quite persuasive that Jews do indeed have quite a bit of power. And, of course, that’s only the tip of the iceberg. But the ADL continues to put out surveys where public attitudes that Jews have too much power  are simply labeled as “anti-Semitic”—no attempt deal with the factual basis of such attitudes. Another recent report on anti-Semitism “defines anti-Semitism as social prejudice directed against Jews simply because they are Jews,” but then goes on to note that anti-Semitism includes perceptions that Jews have too much power. Again, there is no assessment of how much power Jews actually have.

A group that can effectively silence any public discussion of credible evidence of Israeli foreknowledge of 9/11—with all the ramifications such a discussion would have for evaluating the war in Iraq and the diplomatic and military support the US gives to Israel—is powerful indeed. The same goes for their ability to be a pillar of utopian multiculturalism in the West while also being able to rally support for an ethnonationalist, expansionist Israel dedicated to apartheid and ethnic cleansing. Anyone who doesn’t realize that is simply not paying attention.

Canada’s Diplomatic Disaster

Canada’s Diplomatic Disaster

http://dissidentvoice.org/2012/09/canadas-diplomatic-disaster/

by Eric Walberg / September 10th, 2012

On 7 September, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird announced that Canada is suspending all diplomatic relations with Iran, expelling all Iranian diplomats, closing its embassy in Tehran, and authorizing Turkey to act on Canada’s behalf for consular services there. Baird cited Iran’s enmity with Israel, its support of Syria and terrorism. “Canada views the government of Iran as the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today,” Baird said at the Asia Pacific Economic Conference in Vladivostok, Russia.

Canada has not had a full ambassador in Iran since 2007. Relations between the two countries cooled after Iranian-Canadian free-lance photographer Zahra Kazemi died in Iran in 2003 under disputed circumstances, and went from bad to worse under the Conservative government in power in Ottawa since then.

While indeed Iran has been the nation most outspokenly critical of Israel, and is actively working to thwart the Western-backed insurgency in Syria, there is no evidence of its support for “terrorism”. It is, in fact, the victim of terrorism on the part of Israel and the US, which boast about assassinating Iranian nuclear scientists and destroying Iranian computers with viruses made-to-order, among other officially-sponsored acts of subversion.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast suggested that the real reason for Harper’s latest targeting of Iran was because of Iran’s successful hosting of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit in Tehran in August. Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says Tehran’s hosting of the 16th NAM Summit was a “humiliating defeat” for the West.

Humiliation is indeed the operative word for Canada in particular. The past five years of Conservative rule in Canada under the fiercely pro-Israeli Prime Minister Stephen Harper have brought nothing but disgrace to Canada internationally, and this present move adds further humiliation.

As if scripted, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu immediately commended Canada’s decision. With good cause, as it looks suspiciously like a response to a direct Israeli request. Canadian foreign policy is now made in consultation with Israeli advisers under a public security cooperation “partnership” signed in 2008 by Canada and Israel to “protect their respective countries’ population, assets and interests from common threats”. Israel security agents now officially assist Canada’s security services, the RCMP and CSIS, in profiling Canadians citizens who are Muslims and monitoring individuals and/or organisations in Canada involved in supporting the rights of Palestinians and other such nefarious activities.

The barring of British MP George Galloway from entering Canada in 2009 on a North American tour was done as a result of this cooperation. Baird’s claim that Iran supports terrorism is one that Israeli agents have been making in Ottawa under this partnership. Harper has publicly stated he is convinced that Iran is trying “beyond any doubt” to develop nuclear weapons, with ‘evidence’ supplied by these advisers, though it is unlikely that such claims convince anyone, but rather merely confirm public perception of his devotion to Israel.

“It’s hard to find a country friendlier to Israel than Canada these days,” chirped Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on his official visit in 2010. He is right. Stephen Harper’s Conservatives:

– called Israel’s 2006 invasion of Lebanon a “measured response” (A  Canadian UN peacekeeper was targeted and killed by Israel in the invasion. Harper refused to protest, asking rhetorically in parliament what they were doing there in the first place.)

– refused to condemn the invasion of Gaza in December 2008 or the siege of Gaza (the only “Nay” at the UN Human Rights Council)

– refused to condemn the Israeli murder of nine members of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla in May 2009;

– opposed an attempted IAEA probe of Israel’s nuclear facilities as part of an effort to create a nuclear-weapons-free Middle East;

– cut off UN humanitarian aid to Gaza because it was going through the Hamas government there;

– allows goods manufactured in occupied territories by illegal settlers to be labelled “Made in Israel” under the 1997 Canada-Israel Free Trade Agreement 1997.

And as is the case in the Obama/Romney ‘race’ next door, there is no peep of protest from Canada’s opposition liberals or socialists. Interim Liberal leader Bob Rae (whose wife Arlene Perly is past vice president of the Canadian Jewish Congress) met with Netanyahu on his official visit to Canada in February this year, and afterwards said the visit “gives all Canadians the chance to reflect on the deep friendship and strong ties between Israel and Canada”.

In a bizarre non sequitur, the ‘Liberal’ leader added:

Iran’s regime is a threat to the security of the region and the world. A nuclear armed Iran would mean the threat of even greater proliferation and instability in the region, is a direct flouting of international law, and obviously raises the deepest concerns in Israel for its security.

Apparently a very much ‘nuclear armed Israel’ which daily threatens to bomb Iran does not raise his ‘deepest concerns ‘ for Iran’s security.

After meeting with Israeli President Shimon Peres during his official visit to Canada this May, New Democrat leader Tom Mulcair, told the press, “My in-laws are Holocaust survivors. Their history is part of my daily life. That’s why I am an ardent supporter of Israel in all circumstances.” Mulcair’s wife, Catherine Pinhas, was born in France to a Sephardic Jewish family from Turkey. Canadians for Peace and Justice in the Middle East and Independent Jewish Voices criticized Mulcair for accepting financial support from pro-Israel lobbyists.

So there will be little, if any, protest in parliament over Harper’s unprovoked violation of diplomatic norms. In fact, rumor has it that this Canadian move is in preparation for an Israeli-US attack on Iran, though Baird demurred when asked about this as the motive for advising all Canadians to leave Iran immediately. However, the Harper government actually supports Israel’s threats of a pre-emptive air strike against Iran as being within its rights. Minister of State for Foreign Affairs of the Americas Peter Kent told the G8 in Toronto in 2010, “It’s a matter of timing and it’s a matter of how long we can wait without taking more serious pre-emptive action.”

It appears Ottawa is ready and willing to join Israel in any attack. Harper has said, “An attack on Israel is an attack on Canada.” There have already been US-conducted military ‘exercises’ involving Canadian ships off Iran’s coast. 160 Canadian troops have died senselessly in Afghanistan over the past decade. Now Harper wants them to die for Israel in an invasion of Iran, orchestrated to look like it is in defense of Israel.

The NAM summit clearly ruffled some feathers. Iran is supported by the great majority of the world’s people and governments, both as a courageous opponent to US and Israeli imperial intrigues, and as a model for countries that want to develop independent, peaceful nuclear power as an alternative to oil. The summit strongly supported Iran on both counts.

Iranian leadership of NAM during the next three years promises to be innovative and energetic. Even as Baird embarrassed Canadians with his undocumented accusations and violations of diplomatic norms, Mehmanparast called on the UN to fulfill its obligations towards Palestinians and respond forcefully to Israel’s killing of six Palestinians in besieged Gaza last week. “As the rotating president of NAM, the Islamic Republic of Iran expects all international institutions affiliated to the United Nations to adhere to their responsibilities towards the Palestinian nation.” The hysteria in Tel Aviv, Washington, and now Ottawa is not without cause.

The War on Iran is Already Underway

The War on Iran is Already Underway

By Kourosh Ziabari

 

Economic sanctions, psychological warfare, media propaganda, threats and assassinations; what other sort of evidence one may need to believe that the United States, Israel and their European allies have already started their much liked war against Iran and that this unjustifiable war is taking its toll on the innocent, ordinary Iranian citizens?

They say that they have a problem with Iran’s nuclear program; that Iran’s nuclear activities aren’t transparent; that they fear Iran may one day develop nuclear weapons; that Iran may some day drop atomic bombs on Israel and that Iran poses a threat to global peace and security.

But this is not really the case. Perhaps the American journalist and radio host, Mark Glenn, has described the truth in the most comprehensible and sound way: “if Iran had no nuclear program, these countries would make the claim that Iran is financing international terrorism through the export and sale of Pistachio nuts. What is at issue here is that Iran refuses to be a slave to the 2-headed beast of Israeli, western financial and political interests.”

Washington’s animosity toward Tehran is nothing new or unprecedented, nor is it related to Iran’s nuclear program. Since the Islamic Revolution of 1979 dethroned the U.S.-backed monarch Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the U.S. politicians began to carry a chip on their shoulder and started disposing of Iran with hostility and enmity.

With the victory of Iran’s popular revolution led by the charismatic leader Imam Khomeini who strongly opposed the American imperialism and militarism, the sanctions against Iran began to take effect. Under President Carter, the U.S. imposed a set of sanctions on Iran’s oil sector and then blocked USD 12 billion of Iranian government’s assets in Washington. After the deadly 1983 Beirut barracks bombing in which 241 American marines were killed, the U.S. government renewed its sanctions, this time with the order of Ronald Reagan. Reagan administration declared Iran a sponsor of international terrorism and called on the World Bank to stop giving loans to Iran. The deadly attack on the U.S. peacekeeping forces in Beirut for which the White House blamed Iran turned out to be an Israeli false flag operation, as revealed by the former Mossad executive Victor Ostrovsky in a famous 1990 book titled ” By Way of Deception: The Making and Unmaking of a Mossad Officer.”

The Clinton administration toughened the sanctions and in 1996, the Israel-dominated Congress unanimously passed the Iran and Libya Sanctions Act (ILSA) which penalized the foreign companies and firms which invested in Iran’s oil sector. On September 30, 2006 the act was renamed to Iran Sanctions Act (ISA) as it was no longer applied to Libya. George W. Bush administration was similarly antagonistic toward Iran and his administration adopted several rounds of sanctions against Iran’s oil, gas, insurance, agriculture and aviation industries. He also signed into law the Iran Freedom and Support Act on September 30, 2006 which allocated USD 10 million to anti-Iranian terrorist groups.

Barack Obama who came to power with the flaunting and pompous promise of change was no better than his predecessors. Instead of taking up détente and reconciliation with Iran so as to find a sustainable solution to end the nuclear standoff, he assumed an aggressive position, intensified the sanctions, banned transactions with the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) and even created hurdles for Iran to receive the payments for its oil exports.

Existing sanctions on Iran’s oil industry had been expanded “by making sanctionable the purchase or acquisition of Iranian petrochemical products”, Obama said in a statement.

Measures would be taken against firms that have dealings with the National Iranian Oil Company and the Naftiran Inter-trade Company or that help Iran buy U.S. dollars or precious metals, he added.
But the sanctions are not the only means the U.S., Israel and the EU have resorted to in order to bring Iran to its knees and undermine its position as a regional superpower.

The Obama administration has vehemently pursued a policy of running covert ops in Iran through training, funding and assisting terrorists of anti-Iranian cults such as MKO and Jundallah with the objective of spreading fear and terror in the country, sabotaging its security and also impeding its nuclear program.

Since 2010, five scientists associated with Iran’s nuclear program were assassinated, and the footsteps of CIA, Mossad and MKO can be traced in all the four killings.

On August 5, Iran’s television aired confessions of several people involved in the killing of the country’s nuclear scientists. The people who were introduced in a documentary titled “Terror Club” confessed that they received several weeks of military training as well as financial assistance from Israel to carry out their terrorist operations in Iran.

On May 15, 2012, Majid Jamali Fashi, a Mossad spy and terrorist who pleaded guilty and confessed to the killing of Dr. Masoud Alimohammadi, Iran’s quantum field theorist and elementary-particle physicist was executed after describing in details all the stages of his involvement with Mossad, traveling to Israel through a neighboring country and carrying out his malicious operation. According to the Israeli paper Haaretz, Western intelligence confirmed that the detailed confession of Majid Jamali Fashi was genuine.

Damaging Iran’s nuclear program through spreading sophisticated computer worms and malwares such as Stuxnet was another plot by the United States and Israel aimed at deliver a blow to Iran. In the late September, it was reported that Ralph Langer, a renowned expert on industrial systems security had admitted that the Stuxnet worm was coded to sabotage computers operating on Iran’s Bushehr nuclear facilities.

All of these acts of aggression and belligerence are taking place while an intensive media operation against Iran is on track and the mainstream media, affiliated with AIPAC and other hawkish, pro-Israeli think tanks in the United States are mischievously portraying a biased, black and disappointing image of Iran to their people with the aim of laying the groundwork for a possible military invasion of Iran.

The war against Iran, however, seems to be already on the go. A soaring media operation, frequent war threats uttered by insane hawks in Tel Aviv and Washington, assassinations and acts of sabotage all testify that Iran is the target of an all-out war which just has not had a military representation. What can be said for sure is that Iran will not throw the towel in the face of the hostilities and has done a great job withstanding the lethal pressures. This is what makes Iran a promising model for the nations which want to learn how to stand on their own feet.

US Army Psy-Ops Behind Wisconsin Massacre?

 

US Army Psy-Ops Behind Wisconsin Massacre?

by Kevin Barrett

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/08/06/us-army-psy-ops-behind-wisconsin-massacre/

Wade Michael Page, the “man with a 9/11 tattoo” blamed for the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting, turns out to be a US Army psy-ops specialist.

Does the US military, or corrupt forces within it, stage false-flag massacres of civilians inside the US and other “friendly” countries as a kind of “psychological operation”?

Of course it does.

Remember Operation Northwoods? Every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a document proposing that the US military massacre civilians in American cities in order to achieve a political objective: Demonize Cuba and grease the skids for war.

Remember Operation Gladio? The Pentagon, through NATO, organized bombings and shootings in the streets of Europe. When one of the terrorists got caught, he explained at his trial: “You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public to turn to the State to ask for greater security.” He later explained the “strategy of tension” to the BBC: “To create tension within the country to promote conservative, reactionary social and political tendencies.”

Is somebody trying to “promote conservative, reactionary social and political tendencies” in the US today by staging massacres like the recent shootings in Wisconsin and Colorado? Reports of multiple shooters, and other witness statements that don’t fit the official “lone nut” story, suggest that this may be the case.

We recently learned that the notorious “DC Sniper” – the US Army Special Forces whiz who changed his name to “Muhammad” just in time to go on a shooting spree – was a government-sponsored false-flag operation.

When someone starts killing “civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game,” it causes public opinion to swing towards acceptance of hard-line government authority. It makes people run to the state for protection. It stops the people from questioning their leaders, and makes them more willing to do insane things like march off to war.

The neocon agenda aims to turn the US into an authoritarian state at perpetual war with the enemies of Israel. Today, the Zionist plan to smash the Middle East into pieces is running up against the intransigence of Russia, China, and Iran. World War III looms.

Are we being reduced to mental slavery to prevent us from protesting as our leaders get ready to kill most of us in a big nuclear exchange?

That is a big question to ponder on Hiroshima Day.
