World condemns ‘cowardly’ Norway attacks

Western governments lined up to condemn twin attacks in Norway which have claimed at least 87 lives, slamming the “cowardly” perpetrators as they vowed to step up intelligence cooperation.

With Norway involved in both the Afghan and Libya campaigns, NATO‘s chief said the alliance stood united against the “heinous” acts of violence while US President Barack Obama urged countries around the world to step up cooperation in anti-terrorism efforts.

The attacks were “a reminder that the entire international community has a stake in preventing this kind of terror from occurring,” Obama said during a meeting with New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key.

“We have to work cooperatively together on intelligence and in terms of prevention of these kinds of horrible attacks,” added Obama.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed shock and condemned the violence while extending his condolences.

“The United Nations stands together with the people of Norway at this terrible moment,” said the UN chief’s spokesman Martin Nesirky.

NATO‘s Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the alliance was united in its repugnance at the “heinous acts of violence in Norway“.

“Our solidarity with Norway remains steadfast. NATO countries stand united in the battle against these acts of violence,” he added.

Norwegian combat jets have conducted bombings in the air war against Moamer Kadhafi’s regime in Libya, although it is withdrawing the warplanes at the end of the month.

The Norwegian military said in May that it had been the victim of a serious cyber attack at the end of March on the day after its jets for the first time carried out bombings in Libya.

Norway also has around 500 military personnel in Afghanistan, primarily in Kabul and in the north.

The condemnations from Rasmussen and Obama were echoed by Herman Van Rompuy, the president of the European Union, who spoke of his “deep shock” at the killings.

“I condemn in the strongest terms these acts of cowardice for which there is no justification.”

Van Rompuy said he sent a message of “condolences and solidarity” from the 27-nation EU to Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg.

European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso voiced shock at the “abhorrent images” of the bomb blast in Oslo‘s government quarter.

“An attack of this magnitude is not something one would expect in Norway, famously associated with peace at home and peace-making abroad,” Barroso said.

Carl Bildt, foreign minister of neighbouring Sweden, expressed solidarity with his fellow Scandinavians.

“Terror has struck. We are all Norwegians,” he said in a message on Twitter.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said he was outraged by the “evil” attacks and pledged to work with Oslo to track down the perpetrators.

“These attacks are a stark reminder of the threat we all face from terrorism,” he said. “I have offered Britain’s help, including through our close intelligence cooperation.

“We will work with Norway to hunt the murderers who did this and prevent any more innocent deaths. We can overcome this evil, and we will.”

French President Nicolas Sarkozy condemned what he said was an “odious and unacceptable act” of violence while Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said that the attackers had “shown a total lack of respect for human life”.

And in Berlin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was “horrified”. Her “government and the German people are standing by” Norway, she added.

“Canada condemns these barbarous and senseless acts of violence,” Prime Minister Stephen Harper said as his Australian counterpart Julia Gillard also voiced outrage.

“A number of people have been killed and many more injured. Survivors have lived through a nightmare,” she said.

China on Saturday joined global condemnation of the attacks.

China expresses condemnation of the terror attacks and condolences towards it victims,” said a brief statement by China‘s foreign ministry that did not mention Norway by name.

New Zealand’s prime minister John Key also voiced his “sympathies and concerns,” adding: “If it is an act of global terrorism, then I think that what it shows is no country, large or small, is immune from that risk.”

Japan on Saturday expressed “outrage” over the attacks.

“Such violent acts cannot be tolerated,” Prime Minister Naoto Kan told reporters of Friday’s carnage.

Foreign Minister Takeaki Matsumoto said in a statement: “We are strongly shocked and outraged” by the violence.

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.


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?
