Canada Helps Block UN Plan To Rid World Of Nukes, Citing Israel Defence

Posted: Updated: 



OTTAWA - Israel has expressed its gratitude to Canada for helping to block a major international plan towards ridding the world of nuclear weapons.
Elsewhere, however, there was widespread international disappointment that Canada and Britain supported the United States in opposing the document at the United Nations review conference of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
The document called on the UN to hold a disarmament conference on the Middle East by 2016. Such a conference could have forced Israel to publicly acknowledge that it is a nuclear power, something the Jewish state has never done.
Adopting the document would have required a consensus, but since none was reached, that means nuclear disarmament efforts have been blocked until 2020.
In a weekend phone call, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked Stephen Harper for what he called Canada's principled stand, Harper's office in Ottawa said in a statement.
"Prime Minister Harper reaffirmed Canada's commitment to disarmament and non-proliferation, including within the framework of the NPT," the statement said.
"He also stressed Canada's belief that a weapons-of-mass-destruction-free zone can only be truly effective if all countries in the Middle East participate freely and constructively in its establishment."
Foreign Affairs Minister Rob Nicholson said Canada's decision "sends a strong message about Canada's resolve not to compromise the integrity of a treaty to which we remain fully and deeply committed."
But there was widespread opposition and disappointment expressed by several countries that addressed the conference, which wrapped Friday after four weeks of meetings.
Austria, which spoke on behalf of 49 countries, said the result spoke to the wide divide over what nuclear disarmament should mean. "There is a realty gap, a credibility gap, a confidence gap and a moral gap."
The delegate to South Africa added: "There is a sense in which the NPT has degenerated into minority rule similar to what we had in South Africa under apartheid — the will of the few will prevail regardless of whether it makes moral sense."
It's disappointing that Canada helped scuttle the four weeks of negotiations that led up to Friday's result, said Beatrice Fihn, spokeswoman for the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, a coalition of 400 non-governmental organizations in 95 countries.
"Three countries take their cue from a non-state party — Israel isn't even part of the treaty — and thereby have this final say," Fihn said.
But former Liberal foreign affairs minister Lloyd Axworthy supported the Conservative decision, saying that dragging the Middle East issue into the talks was a ploy by some countries to embarrass Israel.
"There was a distinct effort, whether it was by Egypt or others, to present a package that they knew certain countries — including our own — would not agree with," Axworthy said in an interview.
"I wish there had been more countries saying so, with some of the NGOs so quick to condemn, because the reality is if you're going to do diplomacy it has to be feasible and realistic."
The United States accused Egypt and other countries of trying to "cynically manipulate" the review process.
Axworthy said the NPT conference missed a chance to deal with serious nuclear proliferation issues, including Iran's alleged pursuit of a nuclear weapon.
"The way in which the ongoing Middle East-Israeli-Palestinian issue was introduced into the package was clearly designed to be disruptive."
But New Democrat foreign affairs critic Paul Dewar accused the government of playing the role of international spoiler.
"When it comes to the Middle East, many have said this is the most dangerous place in the world to have nuclear weapons," said Dewar.
"If we can get other countries to abide by nuclear non-proliferation in the Middle East, then that can advance the cause globally."

US using ISIL to break up Mideast states- Who controls the Arms, controls the War.

Given all the information we've discussed here on RTS and on Transpicuous News lately, we know that this interview isn't naming the undercurrent reason for the US military's inaction in Iraq (and Syria) against ISIS,  This gentleman doesn't tell the watchers that that ISIS is a US created "terrorist group" designed to further drive a sectarian wedge between various regional governments AND to destroy the foundations of these governments to create a vacuum in which the US(and their allies)  can completely take over.

Even main stream media has run stories that outline that Iraq BOUGHT American Fighter jets back in 2011- that the US REFUSES to deliver to them.  Why?  Because if Iraq had it's own air force, then they wouldn't need the US to do air strikes (that kill civilians) on ISIS bases.

Over the past 3 years the US has trashed over $30 billion worth of military equipment in Afghanistan and Iraq.  In some cases literally blowing up equipment, or throwing it into the sea.  The US refused to let Iraqi or Afghani Military even BUY it, let alone give it to them.  WHY?  Well of course there is always the propaganda that "ISIS" or "Al Qaeda" will steal it and use it against coalition forces.  But the bigger reason is to CONTROL what military equipment these governments HAVE.

....and of course, to force them to buy it NEW from the American Arms dealers.

As I said in an article last week, "America Sells War to the World... for Whom?",  the US just made $4 billion dollars in arms sales.  And of course, that's just in the arms sales that they are admitting to.  Those numbers don't count a lot of "private" arms deals that are done through "private" corporations.

They who control the arms, control the war, Right?

.... and that doesn't even touch on the subject of the Religious war that the US (and it's gang of hooligans)  has created.

Oh and as a reminder from Sunday Nights Transpicuous News:  Syria's Central bank is STILL a free standing bank- and NOT controlled by the Fed and Rothschilds. It is the LAST central bank in the Middle East that is NOT under Federal Reserve/Rothschilds control..... isn't it funny how suddenly ISIS is really driving into Syria at the moment and Drawing out the western public to demand that "someone" stop the destruction of the ancient City of Palmyra.... that "someone" Stop the brutal murders of women and children that ISIS has (apparently ) committed in Palmyra?   And isn't it interesting that the US is now talking about special forces being sent to Iraq.... and perhaps Syria?   You know.... like that  American "Special Forces" group that  infiltrated Syria last week and purported killed the ISIS leader (that Saudi guy), without asking permission of the Syrian Government, or even informing them that they were sending a group of hostile forces into their country?

U.S. claims it killed top ISIS commander in Syria raid

And yesterday, Obama actually said that the US is not engaged in a major war..... even though there are 10,000 US troops in Afghanistan... and goodness knows how many in Iraq and Syria now.

Yea, this interview doesn't really give the "whole story", but at least it outlines the basic story line, if nothing else.



d






Original article and Video of the interview: http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2015/05/26/412916/Iraq-US-Syria-Israel-ISIL

Press TV has conducted an interview with Sabah Jawad, with the Iraqi Democrats against Occupation from London, to ask for his insight on the recent remarks by US Defense Secretary, who said the Iraqi forces do not have the necessary will to fight the ISIL terrorists.

The following is a rough transcription of the interview.

Press TV: How could the US defense secretary say that the Iraqi soldiers don’t have the will to fight these terrorists? It appears based on what Iran has said at least that the US could get rid of these terrorists; there is a military base not too far away from Ramadi in Anbar province.
Jawad: Well, I read American newspapers that expose the American stand on this. They said the American bombardment of Ramadi did not happen because of sand storm. I mean this is an excuse they are giving for not participating in the battle for Ramadi. Of course the Iraqi army is weak. The Iraqi army has been trained and nourished by the Americans since 2003 as well. And now they are saying that the Iraqi army is not adequate. That’s not inadequate; that’s because actually of what the Americans [are] doing to the Iraqi army. They are depriving the Iraqi army of necessary weapons. Iraq purchased a lot of arms from the United States, but actually they received nothing....I mean it’s a bit far…actually for the American to claim that the Iraqi army is not doing a good job. And in fact, the Americans are trying to undermine the only force in Iraq capable of defeating ISIL terrorists and they have a proven history of this; and this is the popular mobilization force.
The Americans made it their job actually to undermine these popular forces when they [did] extremely well in parts of Iraq, in Diyala, in Saladin, in Jurf al-Sakhar and Amerli. They’ve done tremendous job and they defeated the ISIL. When these popular forces finished the job in Salahuddin and Tikrit, actually all this propaganda against them started [and was] financed...by the United States to undermine them. They even threatened the Iraqi government of allowing the popular mobilization forces to go to al-Anbar, they would help arms shipments and they will do this and that and so on. So, it was the whole saga of the American policy in Iraq actually..to undermine the fight against terrorism. They want terrorism to flourish in Iraq, but at the same time contain them to a certain level. So, they could get their way in Iraq. This is not only the story regarding Iraq; this is the story in Syria, the story in Yemen, the story in Lebanon as well.
The United States has found the way actually of implementing their policy, using terrorism and using Takfiri terrorism without them intervening directly militarily and without spending a penny and this is very important. The countries who are spending money to destroy states in the Middle East like Iraq, Syria and Yemen are the Saudis and the Qataris with the help of the Jordanian and Turkish governments as well. These are stooges of the United States’ policy in the area. If you look at the military map in Iraq, you see actually in the battle for al-Anbar for Ramadi the ISIL moved huge chunk of their forces from Mosul to attack Ramadi. And in fact the United States did not even lift the finger regarding that. And they know well actually that these forces are going to the Anbar province. And they do nothing about the easy movement of this terrorist group between Iraq and Syria. And in fact, even in cities and town that are under the control of the ISIL, they are doing military parades without American bombardment. These all are indications of the United States’ policy in the Middle East to destroy these countries, to fragment the people, to create sectarian tension among the people so they could stay. And it is for the benefits of their multinational companies and for the benefits of their stooges and Israel.

Pentagon report, US Intelligence Whistle blowers... all points to US funded, trained and run ISIS

Well well well.... a busy week it would seem for those who are making the subject of "Terrorism" clearly seen for what it actually is.

This morning I published a report by Colonel-General Igor Sergun, Head of the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia.  In this report (HERE)   Sergun States:

"It is no secret that it was at the instigation of Western ‘partners’ that since the 1980s, Islamic extremism was rapidly gaining momentum. To counter the Soviet troops in Afghanistan, there was heavy arming – with the funds from the United Stated of America and other NATO states – of scattered groups of Jihadists and Mujahideen who subsequently merged into major terrorist groups and movements. With financial and military assistance from Washington and its allies, rendered in order to eliminate the regime in Syria, unwanted by the West, the ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ and ‘Jabhat al-Nusra’ were created. Military intervention in Libya by the Alliance entailed similar results.Availability of the stable sources of financing for the extremists is the reason for a serious concern. The most reliable cash-flow channels include various non-governmental organizations and foundations. For example, in the states of the Arabian Peninsula there are about 200 such organizations.
A major source of income is the control over drugs production and trafficking. This activity brings the Islamists of the Middle East and Central Asia up to US $500 million a year.
It happens quite often that actions of Washington and the West in general in various regions of the world contribute to creation of serious problems, including drug trafficking, religious extremism and terrorism, after which Washington heroically mobilizes the international community to neutralize the problems."


Follow that article, with the next two.  

One: a Pentagon report that outlines that the US created the "Terrorists" to fight against Assad, and that they KNEW it was going to "backfire" on them... (bullshit- they planned it that way from the beginning, IMO- d).

And Two: Ex CIA, US Intelligence officer states that EVERY SINGLE "Terrorist Attack" in America was a false flag event.

...... and then I have to ask:  why are they all coming clean on this now?  Is it because the world has had enough and is finally fighting back against the US propaganda machine and their Bully Boy tactics?  Or is this just another piece of their plan?  Is there a deeper question of what they are REALLY doing being hidden by these "Whistleblowers" and finger pointers?  Are they a distraction?  and if so, then a Distraction from What? 

We have Jade Helm, CERN, various mafioso "governments" strong arming and threatening scientists and whistle blowers, and passing laws to prevent the people from exercising their Rights of Freedom of Speech....  So much going on, and yet, there is an undertone of "Distraction" that flows even through all of this.

Keep your eyes on the Ball my friends!!!!!

I will be covering all of these topics and many more tonight on Transpicuous News Weekend Report, LIVE Stream on CCN HERE.   At 9pm BDT/ 4pm EDT.  Be sure to catch tonights show!

US Intelligence Officer: “Every Single Terrorist Attack In US Was A False Flag Attack”



Reposted from: Collective-Evolution | by .
robert
Apart from documents that have outlined supposed terrorist threats, like Al-Qaeda, and their connection to US intelligence agencies, like the CIA, there are a number of whistleblowers that have come out adding more fuel to the fire. Because not many are even aware of these documents, letting people know about a truth that can be hard for people to accept, let alone ponder the possibility is very important. It’s just one aspect of the veil that’s been blinding the masses for quite some time now.
The latest whistleblower is David Steele, a 20-year Marine Corps intelligence officer, and the second-highest-ranking civilian in the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence. He is a former CIA clandestine services case officer, and this is what he had to say:
“Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security services. In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum.”




Pentagon report predicted West’s support for Islamist rebels would create ISIS

Anti-ISIS coalition knowingly sponsored violent extremists to ‘isolate’ Assad, rollback ‘Shia expansion’

by Nafeez Ahmed


This story is published by INSURGE INTELLIGENCE, a new crowd-funded investigative journalism project.
Support us to break the stories that no one else will — become a patron of independent, investigative journalism for the global commons.

A declassified secret US government document obtained by the conservative public interest law firm, Judicial Watch, shows that Western governments deliberately allied with al-Qaeda and other Islamist extremist groups to topple Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad.

The document reveals that in coordination with the Gulf states and Turkey, the West intentionally sponsored violent Islamist groups to destabilize Assad, and that these “supporting powers” desired the emergence of a “Salafist Principality” in Syria to “isolate the Syrian regime.”

According to the newly declassified US document, the Pentagon foresaw the likely rise of the ‘Islamic State’ as a direct consequence of this strategy, and warned that it could destabilize Iraq. Despite anticipating that Western, Gulf state and Turkish support for the “Syrian opposition” — which included al-Qaeda in Iraq — could lead to the emergence of an ‘Islamic State’ in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the document provides no indication of any decision to reverse the policy of support to the Syrian rebels. On the contrary, the emergence of an al-Qaeda affiliated “Salafist Principality” as a result is described as a strategic opportunity to isolate Assad.



Hypocrisy

The revelations contradict the official line of Western governments on their policies in Syria, and raise disturbing questions about secret Western support for violent extremists abroad, while using the burgeoning threat of terror to justify excessive mass surveillance and crackdowns on civil liberties at home.

Among the batch of documents obtained by Judicial Watch through a federal lawsuit, released earlier this week, is a US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) document then classified as “secret,” dated 12th August 2012.

The DIA provides military intelligence in support of planners, policymakers and operations for the US Department of Defense and intelligence community.

So far, media reporting has focused on the evidence that the Obama administration knew of arms supplies from a Libyan terrorist stronghold to rebels in Syria.

Some outlets have reported the US intelligence community’s internal prediction of the rise of ISIS. Yet none have accurately acknowledged the disturbing details exposing how the West knowingly fostered a sectarian, al-Qaeda-driven rebellion in Syria.

Charles Shoebridge, a former British Army and Metropolitan Police counter-terrorism intelligence officer, said:

“Given the political leanings of the organisation that obtained these documents, it’s unsurprising that the main emphasis given to them thus far has been an attempt to embarrass Hilary Clinton regarding what was known about the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi in 2012. However, the documents also contain far less publicized revelations that raise vitally important questions of the West’s governments and media in their support of Syria’s rebellion.”


The West’s Islamists

The newly declassified DIA document from 2012 confirms that the main component of the anti-Assad rebel forces by this time comprised Islamist insurgents affiliated to groups that would lead to the emergence of ISIS. Despite this, these groups were to continue receiving support from Western militaries and their regional allies.

Noting that “the Salafist [sic], the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI [al-Qaeda in Iraq] are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria,” the document states that “the West, Gulf countries, and Turkey support the opposition,” while Russia, China and Iran “support the [Assad] regime.”

The 7-page DIA document states that al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), the precursor to the ‘Islamic State in Iraq,’ (ISI) which became the ‘Islamic State in Iraq and Syria,’ “supported the Syrian opposition from the beginning, both ideologically and through the media.”

The formerly secret Pentagon report notes that the “rise of the insurgency in Syria” has increasingly taken a “sectarian direction,” attracting diverse support from Sunni “religious and tribal powers” across the region.

In a section titled ‘The Future Assumptions of the Crisis,’ the DIA report predicts that while Assad’s regime will survive, retaining control over Syrian territory, the crisis will continue to escalate “into proxy war.”

The document also recommends the creation of “safe havens under international sheltering, similar to what transpired in Libya when Benghazi was chosen as the command centre for the temporary government.”

In Libya, anti-Gaddafi rebels, most of whom were al-Qaeda affiliated militias, were protected by NATO ‘safe havens’ (aka ‘no fly zones’).



‘Supporting powers want’ ISIS entity

In a strikingly prescient prediction, the Pentagon document explicitly forecasts the probable declaration of “an Islamic State through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria.”

Nevertheless, “Western countries, the Gulf states and Turkey are supporting these efforts” by Syrian “opposition forces” fighting to “control the eastern areas (Hasaka and Der Zor), adjacent to Western Iraqi provinces (Mosul and Anbar)”:




Head of the GRU (Russia) accuses US and allies of creating the transnational “Islamist” terrorist network

Right.   So. Iran, Sudan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Venezuela, Ecuador, and now Russia.... all have officials making official statements that directly point to the US (and the UK and Coalition partners), as DIRECTLY being involved with ISIS and AlQaeda and "Islamist" terrorist networks, and/or CIA ops that are directly targeting legitimate governments.

The Head of the GRU accuses US and allies of creating the transnational “Islamist” terrorist network

Dear friends,
I am posting today the speech of Colonel-General Igor Sergun, Head of the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia.  To say that his man, or the GRU is secretive would be an understatement.  Almost all the information publicly available about Sergun is in the short biography (researched by Scott) which I have placed at the end of this post.  As a general rule, the GRU never makes a public statement, nor does the person heading it.  It is thus interesting that on one of the very few occasions were General Sergun agreed to speak in public, he chose to focus on the risks of the so-called “Islamic” extremism and that in a relatively short presentation, he made four reference to the fact that these “Islamic” terrorists are basically a creature of the West.  One might be tempted to say “nothing new here, we all know that” – but that would be missing the point.  The point is that the head of Russian military intelligence is openly declaring that the so-called “Islamic terrorism” is not an original or indigenous phenomenon, but an instrument in the toolset of western imperialism which is used to subvert the countries which dare oppose the worldwide hegemony of the AngloZionist Empire.

THESES OF THE PRESENTATION
of the Head of the Main Directorate of the General Staff
at the IV Moscow Conference
on International Security
devoted to: “Global SecurityRadical Transformation 
or Creation of New Rules for the Game?”
(April 16, 2015 г.)
The subject:
“Hot Points” of the Global Fight with Terrorism “
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
One of the most dangerous challenges of the current times is presented by the international terrorism, which is rapidly acquiring a political nature and is being turned into a real force, striving to come to power in certain countries.
We are witnessing a steady trend towards globalization of activities of extremist organizations. This includes a wide geographic spread, strengthening of the interaction between previously disparate groups, as well as swift adaptation to situational changes.
Among international terrorist organizations, the role of radical Islamists is increasing. Their leaders are developing collaboration and seek to create zones of instability, which include not only countries but entire regions.
The “Terrorist International” under creation aims at restoration through military force the “Great Caliphate” within the borders encompassing the Middle East, the Caucasus, Northern Africa and Iberian Peninsula. A campaign for formation of the united front of the “Global Jihad” was announced, with the aim of conducting armed struggle against the “main enemies of Islam”, represented by the USA, Western European countries, Russia and Muslim countries with the secular governments.
Currently, terrorism presents the greatest threat for Iraq, Syria, Libya and Afghanistan, where ” Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant “, ” Al-Qaeda “, ” Jabhat al-Nusra “, Islamic Taliban Movement and other radical groups are active,
Al-Qaeda’ remains one of the most powerful terrorist organizations, although in current conditions it has become to a greater extent “the banner of the war against infidels” for the Islamists, while the related regional groups operate virtually independently.
Lately, the ” Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant “, which managed to force its control over a significant part of Iraq and Syria, is successfully striving to occupy leading position among the extremist organizations.
The terrorists have declared the establishment of an ‘Islamic Caliphate’ on occupied territories and started to set up their own ‘public institutions’, including financial and judicial systems. Sustainable centralized control over the armed groups has been organized.
The strengthening of ISIS has seriously destabilized the situation in Africa. ISIS provides substantial military and financial assistance to the local extremists, sends reinforcements composed of the Syrian and Iraqi terrorists. The groups receiving such support are ‘Ansar al-Sharia’, operating in North Africa, and ‘Boko Haram,’ in the West of the continent, while the greatest threat to the stability of East Africa is the Somali terrorist organization ‘Al-Shabab al-Mujahedeen,’ responsible for a number of high-profile actions.
Equally alarming is the situation that is developing in the Middle East and Central Asia, where extremist organizations such as the ‘Taliban’, ‘Hizb-ut-Tahrir’ and Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan maintain high combat potential. We estimate that currently, in Afghanistan alone, about 50 thousand militants are fighting. Afghan and Pakistani territories host a network of terrorist training camps, including the training camps for suicide bombers.
Active dissemination of radical Islamist ideas has a negative impact on the development of the situation in Southeast Asia. In particular, unpredictable consequences could be caused by the extremist organization, ‘Jamaa Islamiya’, whose main goal is the creation of a single Islamic theocratic state within the borders of Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and the Muslim provinces of Thailand and the Philippines.
In recent years, the level of terrorist threat in Europe has increased. This is primarily due to the insurgents returning from the “hot spots” ready to use the gained experience at home. About 600 jihadists returned in the past four years to Germany alone.
The extremists’ influence has spread to include some South American regions. The Tri-border Area, located along the junction of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, is considered a springboard by the extremists.
An undercover activity of some of the states aimed at achieving their own foreign policy missions through secret financing of Islamic structures destabilizes the situation.
While flirting with the extremists, some Western countries seem to be sure that the so-called policy of controlled chaos in far-away regions shall not result in tragic consequences, at least, in the middle term, but I think such opinion is unsound.
It is no secret that it was at the instigation of Western ‘partners’ that since the 1980s, Islamic extremism was rapidly gaining momentum. To counter the Soviet troops in Afghanistan, there was heavy arming – with the funds from the United Stated of America and other NATO states – of scattered groups of Jihadists and Mujahideen who subsequently merged into major terrorist groups and movements. With financial and military assistance from Washington and its allies, rendered in order to eliminate the regime in Syria, unwanted by the West, the ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ and ‘Jabhat al-Nusra’ were created. Military intervention in Libya by the Alliance entailed similar results.
Availability of the stable sources of financing for the extremists is the reason for a serious concern. The most reliable cash-flow channels include various non-governmental organizations and foundations. For example, in the states of the Arabian Peninsula there are about 200 such organizations.
A major source of income is the control over drugs production and trafficking. This activity brings the Islamists of the Middle East and Central Asia up to US $500 million a year.
It happens quite often that actions of Washington and the West in general in various regions of the world contribute to creation of serious problems, including drug trafficking, religious extremism and terrorism, after which Washington heroically mobilizes the international community to neutralize the problems.
In general, under the slogan of struggle for ‘pure Islam’, international terrorism is becoming a form of transnational crime. In fact, it has become a lucrative business with capital turnover running into billions, with drug trafficking, hostage taking, smuggling weapons and precious metals.
In search of additional sources of funding, jihadists purposefully develop links with nationalist organizations, pirates and separatists.
Thus, we should expect that, in the short term, the level of terrorist threats in the world would remain high enough. Scaling up of extremist groups, among others at the instigation of the United States and its allies, especially in the Middle East and Central Asia, poses a real threat of terrorism export to European countries, the republics of the CIS and the Asia-Pacific region.
Thank you for your attention.

(star)  Editor In Chief Of World’s Best Known Medical Journal: Half Of All The Literature Is False

In the past few years more professionals have come forward to share a truth that, for many people, proves difficult to swallow. One such authority is Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of the Lancet – considered to be one of the most well respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world.
Dr. Horton recently published a statement declaring that a lot of published research is in fact unreliable at best, if not completely false.
“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.”

(star)  Garland Shooting Event Revised – Shining a Spotlight on FBI’s Role Before Attack

According to official reports over the last week, key details concerning the shooting outside the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas – have suddenly changed…
This past May 3rd, it was reported that two gunmen opened fire outside of a cartoon ‘art’ exhibition and “free speech contest” featuring images of the Prophet Muhammad in Garland, Texas.

Incredibly, government scribes have change their official story line this week, with investigators now saying that the two named suspects, Elton Simpson and Nadir Hamid Soofi were shot dead, but not by a single traffic officer as was originally stated by authorities, by by heavily armed SWAT Team officers.
This latest change radically differs from what the Garland Police Department had originally released shortly after the incident occurred.

(star) Over 90,000 people in Macedonian "Anti-Maiden" demonstration

"Tonight, VMRO-DPMNE and its coalition partners are holding a rally under the slogan "Macedonia Strong!".  Initial assessments count over 90,000 citizens, making this rally the largest in the history of Macedonia.  The number is expected to exceed more than 100,000 supporters. " - Republika.mk
However we should note something extraordinarily important about yesterday's protests as well. As confirmed by our own assets on the ground, as well as a working knowledge of the Color/Spring template, people came out to the protest yesterday for many different reasons, relating to several ongoing issues that are being covered in local media in Macedonia.  Some relate to legitimate issues, and others relate to manufactured problems conjured by pro-western media and western funded NGO's operating inside of Macedonia.

America Sells War to the World... for whom?

You know, add this Zerohedge article below, to the article where the Pope tells little school children that War is caused by Arms Dealers and that they don't love little children..... yet the Vatican owns the largest "Arms Dealer" Corporation in the world.... (and seemingly love little children WAY too much)....








Vatican Bank is the main shareholder in ‘Pietro Beretta’ arms


Perhaps few people know that Pietro Beretta arms factory Ltd. (the largest arms industry in the world) and is controlled by the Holding SpA Beretta and the majority shareholder of the Beretta Holding SpA after Gussalli Ugo Beretta, is theIOR (Institute for Works of Religion [commonly known as the Vatican Bank]) private institution founded in 1942 by Pope Pius XII and headquartered in Vatican City.

And of course, we can't forget France and Russia's ongoing tango over the Mistral ships....  and the latest rumors that Saudi is going to buy nuclear weapons from Pakistan (more on that tomorrow night on Transpicuous News)....  or ISIS is buying them?  (or is Saudi buying them for ISIS?) ..... it's all so confusing.

I mean, I have spent probably hundreds of hours following the news out of the middle east- from the whole range of news services in Israel, Iran, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia- eastern media, western media, alternative media..... and the Clusterfuck that is the "War Machine" in the Middle East, is so convoluted and intertwined in an ongoing battle between the various "Countries", the various "terrorists, and the various Religions, that seem to change who they are fighting against more often than they change their underwear..... is it any wonder that the Arms Dealers are happy?

Create a Conflict, Apply force, Pretend to have a resolution.

It's been the US's tried and true mechanism for making money (and gaining power) for almost a hundred years.   Why change the template when it has worked so well for them in the past.  No one needs to know that they are selling illegal cluster bombs to Saudi, right?

..... then again, who's behind the US?   Who gains from their tactics?   The reality is that America is just a dumb muscle head enforcer, used to threaten anyone who stands in the way of the brains of the controllers, just like any other Mafiaesque Organization.

This Is How You "Boost" GDP: US Sells Over $4 Billion In Weapons To Israel, Iran And Saudi Arabia

Tyler Durden's picture




War, what's it good for?
Aside from countless deaths of innocent civilians of course, it means a GDP boost for the biggest exporter of weapons on earth, the United States, and even more profits for the US military-industrial complex. Profits which mean the shareholders of America's arms manufacturers get even richer.
Which is why following months of middle-eastern sabre ratling and numerous quasi-wars already raging in the region, moments ago the U.S. State Department approved the sale of 10 MH-60R Seahawk helicopters to Saudi Arabia for $1.9 billion, the first step in "a major multibillion-dollar modernization of the Saudi navy's eastern fleet."
MH-60R Seahawk helicopter
According to Reuters, the Pentagon's Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) notified lawmakers on Thursday about the possible arms sale, which has been discussed for years.
The Saudi government had requested a sale of the 10 MH-60R multi-mission helicopters, built by Sikorsky Aircraft, a unit of United Technologies Corp and Lockheed, as well as radars, missiles and other equipment, the agency said.
Why do the Saudis need a modernization of their already state of the art weapons?
The proposed sale would improve Saudi Arabia’s capability to meet current and future threats from enemy weapons systems, as well as secondary missions such as vertical replenishment, search and rescue, and communications relay.

"Saudi Arabia will use the enhanced capability as a deterrent to regional threats and to strengthen its homeland defense," the agency said.
In other words, the Saudis, by funding ISIS, are creating the very "regional threat" (which recently has launched numerous false flag attacks against the same Saudi Arabia to provie the cover for needing such a modernization) that they need to wage war against.
But wait, there's more!
Because just to make sure the same vendors of lethal equipment have happy repeat customers, the Pentagon also announced a $1.9 billion deal with Israel to supply 3,000 Hellfire precision missiles, 250 AIM-120C advanced medium-range air-to-air missiles, 4,100 GBU-39 small diameter bombs and 50 BLU-113 bunker buster bombs. The order also includes 14,500 tail kits for Joint Direct Attack Munitions for 220kg and 900kg bombs and a variety of Paveway laser-guided bomb kits according to RT.

Wait, wasn't the US said to have tarnished its relations with Israel in recent months following various diplomatic snubs by Netanyahu and Obama? Well, it was all for show: according to Israeli media deal is seen as "compensation" for the rapprochement between Iran and the US.
Curiously, this is precisely what we wrote two weeks ago in "Obama's Real Motive Behind The Iran Deal: A Backdoor Channel To Sell Weapons To Saudi Arabia" only we can now add Israel in the mix.
“The proposed sale of this equipment will provide Israel the ability to support its self-defense needs," the US Defense Security Cooperation Agency said, adding that the new contract is meant to“replenish”Israel's arsenal without supplying the country with any kind of new weapons.

In November 2014 it was reported that Pentagon was going to supplying Israel with 3,000 smart bombs, similar to those used by the Israeli Air Force in Gaza last summer, where an estimated 100 tons of munitions were dropped.
So "modernizing" the Saudi arsenal and "replenishing" that of Israel.
In other words, Obama's warming up to Iran was nothing but a back door diplomatic loophole to arm Iran's "threatened" neighbors in the region. Just as we forecast.
As for the beneficiaries, once again there is no question: the main contractors to fulfill the lucrative Israeli arms deal will be Boeing, Ellwood National Forge, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin and Raytheon Missile Systems, AFP reported.
But wait, there is even more!
Because, just in case arming Israel and Saudi Arabia with sophisticated modern weaponry isn't enough to assure of a full on war in the coming weeks as the balance of power in the middle east once again shifts dramatically, the US - to really make sure America's MIC has even more happy repeat customers, will also deliver 2,000 AT-4 anti-tank rockets to Iraq as early as next week, 1,000 more than announced on Wednesday, to help Baghdad combat suicide car bombings by Islamic State.

Wait, anti-tank bombs to counter suicide bombers? Apparently yes:
Spokesman Colonel Steve Warren said the delivery would help Iraq defend against approaching suicide bombers driving vehicles packed with explosives, attacks used by Islamic State militants last weekend to help them seize Ramadi from Iraqi forces. "This is a good counter to that (type of bombing)," Warren said.

Warren said the anti-tank weapons would allow the Iraqi forces to destroy approaching suicide car bombers at a distance. Relying on small arms requires disabling the engine or killing the driver, which can be difficult, he said.
And all of this why? So that the Saudis and Iran can "fight" against a Saudi-funded ISIS force, while Israel has "defensive" weapons against an Iran which may become a threat to Israel because of its recently friendly relations with the US.
Or, to conclude with the same summary we provided two weeks ago when predicting this outcome:
In other words, we have, for the past few years, been on the edge of a razor thin Middle Eastern balance of power equilibrium which prevented any one nation or alliance from garnering an outsized influence of military power.

All of that is about to change the moment the MIC figurehead known as president Obama greenlights the dispatch of billions of dollars in fighters, drones, missile batteries, and surveillance equipment to Saudi Arabia and its peers, in the process dramatically reshaping the balance of power status quo and almost certainly leading to yet another middle eastern war which will inevitably drag in not only Israel and Russia at least in a proxy capacity, but ultimately, the US as well.

Just as the US military industrial complex wanted.

Because as every Keynesian fanatic will tell you: in a world saturated by debt, and where organic growth is no longer possible, there is only one remaining option.

War.
