Will Obama address 2Ks to win 2Cs

By Hamid Waheed

Obama and Mich

Obama’s visit to India starts at crucial time with lots of speculations and media hype over an environment of intense mistrust amongst the collation partners on WOT. Analysts term this visit difficult for diplomacy and crucial for exit strategy of war in Afghanistan. The challenge is how to avoid the 2Ks (Kashmir and killings) for giving space to diplomacy with India and at same time do not compromise on 2Cs (confidence level with collation partners and control over Afghanistan situation ) which remain pivotal to any future policy in the region.

The Kashmir region discussed by India as a bilateral issue is divided among three countries in a territorial dispute: Pakistan controls the northwest portion (Northern Areas and Azad Kashmir), India controls the central and southern portion (Jammu and Kashmir) and Ladakh, and China controls the northeastern portion (Aksai Chin and the Trans-Karakoram Tract). India controls the majority of the Siachen Glacier area including the Saltoro Ridge passes, whereas Pakistan controls the lower territory just southwest of the Saltoro Ridge. India controls 101,338 km2 (39,127 sq mi) of the disputed territory, Pakistan 85,846 km2 (33,145 sq mi) and China, the remaining 37,555 km2 (14,500 sq mi).The denial of visa by China to an Indian Army’s Northern Command Chief Lt General BS Jaswal in a delegation, saying the officer oversees Jammu and Kashmir which according to Beijing is a disputed area has added new dimensions to Kashmir in the region.

The HR violations in Indian part of Kashmir which remain under control of half-a-million Indian soldiers and paramilitaries is now recognized by world Human rights organizations. Indian writers like Booker Prize-winning author Arundhati Roy is being charged with sedition over comments she made about the disputed province of Kashmir she defended by saying, “I pity the nation that needs to jail those who ask for justice, I said what millions of people here say every day”. The reports confirm of arrests and violence against ordinary civilians under extra coercive powers given to Indian army. The Indian Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) report alleges Lieutenant Colonel Prasad Purohit, a serving officer from the Indian Army arrested for acts of terror after the 2008 Malegaon Blasts and terrorist attack on Samjhota Express train in 2007. The report confirms that Purohit routed funds from Abhinav Bharat Trust, a Hindu nationalist organization.

Former Maharashtra Inspector General of Police S. M. Musharraf writes in his book, “Who killed Karkare, the Real Face of Terrorism in India” (reference: page 182).that,” all the reports that were available to him suggest that the Indian Intelligence Bureau (IB) was aware of the attack at least five days in advance. However, it is strange that they did not pass on this information to the Mumbai Police”. Such reports point fingers at a network functioning fully backed by elements in Indian military intelligence, extremist political party, RSS ,IB and RAW. Despite this there are reports that India is aiming to finalise a $5.8 billion defence agreement with the United States. This deal along with all potential support services and spares is the biggest-ever defence deal between the two countries till now, a senior government official told Reuters. Another official said the actual announcement could be made during President Obama’s visit. Obama will face these realities in back drop of American law which requires that the United States should cut off financing and defence deals with foreign militaries that are found to have committed gross violations of human rights.

Obama’s Indian visit with elections waiting at home front will have strategic and moral implications for both US government and the ruling party. American image already suffers on moral grounds after Wikileaks and drone attacks with Philip Alston, the UN’ Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial Executions saying that the drone strikes “might violate international humanitarian law and international human rights law.” The Afghan end game scenario requires minimizing trust deficit to synergize efforts. Will Obama weigh the logics or the hawks will prevail will be decided in coming days.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
