Be-ware – isn’t it funny how in the same week a bomb went off (possibly) in a Russian Plane over Egypt that reports on the UK intelligence services listening to ALL OUR PHONE CALLS FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS – for our own protection of course, no-one makes a squeak of protest.
Also the NEW SNOOPERS CHARTER – Once one the Tories were against, is now one they want so they can monitor all our web traffic history, your porn site history, those weird gifts you bought online you thought no-one would know about it for at least a year at the least.
They talk about US courts having to get warrants but the FISA court rubber stamped 99.6% of all warrant requests for more intel on the calls (e.g listening in, reading emails, not just who rang X at Y or who emailed X at Y, were given out. Do you think we would be any different.
Plus a top cop could start the ball rolling with the snooping they only need the warrant for more detailed info – you know like the exact text message you sent to you mate in Pakistan who may have a dodgy cousin he never speaks to but is up to no good somehow. This is just the start.
Plus to find out that we have had all our phone calls listened to for the last 10 years with no democratic oversight is just plain GCHQ / NSA bollocks. It comes as no surprise to me they bring all this news out the same week as a “possible terrorist explosion” happened on a Russian plane.
I wouldn’t have put it past the CIA to have organised it anyway, through cut outs of course, just to get back at Russia for sticking their nose in over Ukraine and Syria. Two countries Russia have a right to stick their nose in and WE DON’T.
So some (CIA/ISIS/Egyptian Stooge of either)blew up a Russian plane (maybe in response to MH17 – not that UK Intelligence would tell us if CIA had done it.
I can imagine a conversation between the heads of our intelligence.
“we got them god dam Ruskies back for Ukraine, they will think twice now, they will get the message it was us…”
Not that our intelligence services would ever tell us the truth of WHY they thought it was a terrorist / intelligence / false flag attack.
No that is need to know – and people flying on board the planes destined to blow up don’t have any need to know. They just need money and food to keep them going as they are stuck out in Egypt.
Remember how murky the Lockerbie bombing was – A magic key piece of evidence found by a CIA officer in Scotland just bimbling around the site over miles. 2 people handed over despite promises that they wouldn’t by Gadaffi. A phoney trial and then a phoney jail sentence ensued. If you think these sort of false flag attacks don’t happen read what the Indonesian President said about the Bali nightclub bombing.
One was acquitted the other jailed until Blair kissed Gaddafi and promised he would be home soon through some Scottish Judiciary tweaks about his ill heaths.
So in the same week, news of all our phone calls being recorded over 10 years AND the new snoopers charter letting them read Facebook messages, WhatsApp and Skype messages and preventing strong encryption is also brought out is this just convient or just luck for our intelligence services.
The axis of war – US/UK/France has ruined the Middle East – destroyed Libya and caused massive migration by trying to destabilise Syria for no good reason apart from it was on US/Israel’s list of countries to turn over AFTER 9/11.
Libya is now split in 2 with 2 governments, even an area controlled by ISIS and one government has to meet on a boat at sea due to rebels in control of town and areas.
The TV channel the US seem to hate with a passion, Russia Today, I admit is not exactly fair and balanced when it comes to things Russia does badly but at least ALL THEIR airstrikes on Syria, where they have been invited to bomb ALL terrorists, unlike us and the US/UK/Turkey etc, are all on YouTube. Plus they respond to every US accusation with facts not that western media reports on it.
As Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov saidat the UN recently: “If it looks like a terrorist, if it acts like a terrorist, if it walks like a terrorist, if it fights like a terrorist, it’s a terrorist, right?“ – true or false?
So let the people who want to defeat ISIS properly do the job.
The Russians have done more in a month than we have in a year.
Iran, Iraq, Syria, Kurds with their all female attack brigades rescuing 10 year old sex slaves from ISIS whilst avoiding Turkish bombs with Russia’s help, are all fighting together to defeat this beast.
All we seem to be doing more to impede Russia and help the enemy.
All we have done is dropped a few bombs, let Turkey join in and bomb their Kurdish enemies in Syria, whilst accusing Russia of bombing the “moderate FSA”, and hospitals – without any facts to back this up of course.
However the US accuse Russia of doing exactly what they do ALL the time.
Even US soldiers who arrived on the scene afterwards left the army in disgust because of this act.
Hospitals, weddings, funerals, it doesn’t matter. It’s like they are trying to create as many more terrorists as possible before they leave without winning the war (again) so that they can start another war somewhere else.
As I have repeatedly said. If we wanted to stop ISIS we could very easily.
We need to just sit down with the Saudi Arabians ans QATAR and tell them to stop funding and arming ISIS or else we will stop buying your oil and selling you planes, tanks and arms that somehow always seem to end up in ISIS and other jihadists hands.
The problem is when it comes down to it we prefer selling guns to a country who cuts more heads off than ISIS and jails and whips women gang raped for being out alone (her fault apparently for being alone) – so we want ISIS to be there to push through these civil liberty destroying measures.
Beware of the bogeyman under your bed.
It wears an ISIS Burka with a CIA and a Saudi funder and it’s there to scare you into giving over MORE of our reclining civil liberties.
After years of denials, non apologies and dismal of any suggestion that he and George Bush have caused havoc by starting the illegal Iraq war, Tony Blair in an interview on CNNfinally apologised for the Iraq war, and the havoc it caused afterwards including the rise of ISIS.
I apologise for the fact that the intelligence we received was wrong.
I also apologise for some of the mistakes in planning and, certainly, our mistake in our understanding of what would happen once you removed the regime.
He also admitted that the West’s involvement in Iraq helped the rise of ISIS.
“I think there are elements of truth in that,” he said when asked whether the Iraq invasion had been the “principal cause” of the rise of ISIS.
Of course you can’t say those of us who removed Saddam in 2003 bear no responsibility for the situation in 2015.
It is probably because he already knows what is in the long awaited Chilcot Report on the war that has made him come around but for the 3 time UK PM who took the UK into 4 wars and is to blame for the crisis in Iraq and Syria we are now seeing to actually say so is quite a surprise.
Whether or not this “admission“, is enough for war crimes lawyers to take him to the Hague, I doubt.
If Jeremy Corybn does manage to get elected then I hope he arrests Blair like he said he would, but then again, Blair will probably be living in a country with no extradition treaties with the UK by then!
However just to see Tony Blair, who was once lauded as our finest Labour PM around the world, now just known as nothing but a war criminal is a sight I enjoy. He cannot even appear in London to sign books before a crowd appears to throw eggs at him and he is rushed out the back for his “own security”.
Senior defence sources said British fighters are likely to be involved in a deadly air battle with Russian aircraft sooner rather than later and have said that “We need to protect our pilots but at the same time we’re taking a step closer to war.
It will only take one plane to be shot down in an air-to-air battle and the whole landscape will change.
UK defence chiefs also believe there is a real possibility a British jet could be attacked or shot down in a dogfight with a Russian pilot.
All this means we are stupidly stepping closer to full-out combat with Russian and possibly Chinese military over a country we have no business in bombing.
Supposedly both sides are trying to defeat the monster called ISIS that the axis of war US/UK/France created with their actions in the Middle East.
It seems that rather than join forces and have one huge army on hand to defeat this beast our leaders are so pig headed they would rather start a world war than join Russia in co-ordinating attacks in Syria and Iraq.
Whilst Russia has a “REAL” coalition of fighters who have permission to engage in Syria, the US has just stopped their mission to fund “moderate” Syrian rebels due to the fact that there aren’t any, and they only managed to get 5 out into the field anyway.
The Obama administration on Friday abandoned its efforts to build up a new rebel force inside Syria to combat the Islamic State, acknowledging the failure of its $500 million campaign to train thousands of fighters and announcing that it will instead use the money to provide ammunition and some weapons for groups already engaged in the battle.
So what does this mean?
More support for Jihadist, al-Qaeda linked, al-Nusra, Free Syrian Army terrorists. Ones who are treated as allies one minute, against the “Hitler” that President Assad is, whilst not dining with John Kerry.
If it looks like a terrorist, if it acts like a terrorist, if it walks like a terrorist, if it fights like a terrorist, it’s a terrorist, right?
I would say yes, so would most people with common sense and a little knowledge of the Syrian war and the scenes of US backed and funded “moderates” committing atrocities all over the place.
As Lavrov went onto logically state:
“The goal of our operation — in response to the request of President Assad and on the basis of the decision granted by the Russian parliament to the Russian President in accordance with the Russian constitution — the goal is terrorism and we are not supporting anyone against their own people. We fight terrorism,” Lavrov said.
Lavrov questioned the U.S.-led coalition’s legitimacy, given the mission had not received the consent of the U.N. Security Council or any “request of one of the countries on whose territories they operate.”
“You cannot avoid the impression that the legal basis of the coalition activities in Syria is really flawed,” he said.”
“As far as I understand, the coalition announced ISIL and other associated groups as the enemy and the coalition does the same as Russia [does]. Somehow some people try to present the coalition action as leading to a political settlement and Russia fighting the same people is being perceived or presented like defending the regime. It’s absolutely unfair,” he said.
The foreign minister also questioned the logic of trying to topple al-Assad to further the fight against ISIS, asking whether the removal of Saddam Hussein in Iraq and Moammar Gadhafi in Libya had made those countries better places.
The obvious answer to his question is no our involvement in these countries has made the whole region a mess and now its effecting Europe with the mass migration not seen since World War II.
Even Denmark and Sweden, not exactly known for their neo-liberal, neo-con views, are controlled by right-wing parties who don’t want these migrants on their door.
If the US/UK really wanted to stop ISIS they could without even sending planes and men to die over Syria. They could just tell their “allies”, you know the ones that supposedly funded the 9.11 bombers, Saudi Arabia, to stop giving them guns and money or they won’t buy oil from them or sell them arms any more.
It seems that arms sales to Saudi Arabia, that somehow end up in ISIS hands, are more important than the chance of a war with Russia in Syria. It seems the neo-con nutters want to make up for the one they could’t get in the Ukraine.
We could use our clout, diplomacy and the age old concept of getting everyone to sit round a table and talk, to stop this before it gets out of hand.
We even talked to the USSR during the worst stages of the Cold War.
US President Kennedy talked to the head of the USSR Kruschev and they worked out a plan of action. They worked out a plan for Russia to turn back with their stock of nukes for Cuba and in return NATO would remove their own nuclear missiles from near the Russian border in Turkey. Why can we not do this now?
There is no need for the west to be sticking their nose in again when we can use our diplomacy to stop finance and weapons from reaching ISIS whilst we let a REAL coalition of the willing. One who has the permission of the country where the bombs are being dropped e.g Syria and Iraq, to carry on their onslaught of ISIS.
Russian military might, joined soon with China and the Kurds, Iranians, Iraqis, Hezbollah and the Syrian military fighting on the ground against ISIS and other terrorist groups like al-Nusra have probably done more in a few weeks than the US led coalition has done in a year of wasted tax payer money.
Why not let the countries who can properly co-ordinate air strikes with ground offensives as Russia and Syria have been doing, get on with the fighting whilst we use our clout to stop arms and funds getting to the terrorists.
There is no point risking an accidental dog fight, shot down Russian plane that is then blamed on us, or vice-versa from starting what could be World War III is there?
Confucius peace prize chairman defends decision to give award to leader accused of using systematic violence and torture to maintain grip on power
Dark Politricks says….
I think this is China taking the piss out of US President Obama for having being given the Nobel Peace Prize for absolutley nothing!
The two Presidents should sit down and talk about all the killings and death they have been responsible for over their time as black Presidents.
Who would have the biggest body count?
President Obama of course.
All that “Change we can believe in” turned out to be “All the same policies and even people, just carry on cheering that Bush has gone”.
He failed to do anything his supporters wanted and he promised he would in speech after speech.
The economy is still a mess,
Gitmo is still open.
The wars he promised to stop are still going on in Afghanistan and Iraq and he has expanded them into Syria, Somalia, Yemen and ruined the most prosperous country in Africa, Libya.
He has let Israel carry out massacres and slaughters in Gaza and even ignored the killings of US citizens by supposed “allies” that get the US to do their dirty work for them.
The Bush era torture policies are still going on at black sites across the world helped along with CIA rendition.
Drone strikes have soared and even US citizens have been killed without judicial review under Obama’s Presidency.
He has attacked journalists trying to bring important stories of his wars and attacks on civil liberties to light and implemented old Spy laws more than all other Presidents combined. Whistleblowers are now considered “Spies” and “Dangers to America” for revealing how the US Police State is spying on everyone.
The NSA, CIA, FBI, Homeland Security and DEA are all watching you and storing data for later use. They are even back fitting crimes due to all the data they are capturing, telling local police forces about drug deals so that they can just “turn up accidentally” and arrest the suspects. They then have to make up reasons for how they found out about the deal in the first place as they had no reason to expect the offence to happen without the help of systems like PRISM and TRAPWIRE.
He has not jailed Banksters instead he has put more Goldman Sachs people in charge of the economy and let them borrow money at 0% interest rates then loan it to us mugs at 16%+. Free money for the banks, high interest money for us. He is truly a Wall St owned President.
The laws he brought in supposedly to help Americans like Obamacare have been legally enforceable ways to make you purchase health insurance whether you want it or not. A true liberal would have ignored the GOP and brought in a single payer NHS like system where the Government controlled both ends and insurance companies didn’t get rich off the backs of peoples ill health.
He was treated like a messiah in the same way Mugabe and other African dictators are by his supporters no matter what wrong he does to the world.
In those respects Mugabe and Obama have a lot in common and a lot to talk about.
Neither of them deserve any kind of peace award and I reckon it’s a bit of Chinese humour to embarress the US President. If not it should have been and if I was in the Nobel Peace Prize committee I would ask for Obama’s peace prize back.
Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe – joint Nobel Peace Prize Winner with US President Obama
The chairman of an award dubbed China’s Nobel peace prize has defended the decision to honour Robert Mugabe, the Zimbabwean president, for supposedly “injecting fresh energy” into the global quest for harmony.
Mugabe, who has been accused of using systematic violence and torture to maintain his 35-year grip on power, recently became the latest recipient of China’s Confucius peace prize.
The Beijing-run Global Times newspaper said 91-year-old Mugabe had beaten off competition from candidates including the Microsoft founder, Bill Gates, and the South Korean president, Park Geun-hye.
Ever since Robert Mugabe was sworn in as the president of Zimbabwe in the 1980s, he has worked hard to bring political and economic order to the country and to improve the welfare of the Zimbabwean people by overcoming hardship, the prize committee argued in a statement.
The committee praised Mugabe’s stewardship of the 54-state African Union after he became its chairman earlier this year.
News of Mugabe’s Chinese award sparked fury among opposition groups in Zimbabwe and ridicule among human rights activists.
The rule of Mugabe is paved with blood, violence, arson and cruelty, Gorden Moyo, the secretary general of the People’s Democratic party, claimed on the Bulawayo 24 news website.
Moyo said his party was “utterly disgusted” with the Chinese tribute to Zimbabwe’s leader, whom he called “a war-monger … and a sadist who delights in the misery of the people”.
The Confucius award was set up in 2010 as a Chinese alternative to the Nobel peace prize after the Norwegian Nobel committee infuriated Beijing by handing its annual peace prize to the jailed dissident writer Liu Xiaobo. Liu remains in prison for co-writing a pro-democracy manifesto called Charter 08.
Previous winners of include Vladimir Putin and Fidel Castro, who was praised by the committee for “speaking out against nuclear warfare”.
Qiao Damo, the committee’s chairman, told the Guardian he supported the decision to recognise the achievements of Mugabe, who has ruled Zimbabwe since independence from Britain in 1980.
If Zimbabwe did not have Mugabe as its president, the country would be facing great difficulty – even public security might be in danger, Qiao said.
He added: “Every country’s economy has its highs and lows. Though its economy is lagging behind, [Zimbabwe is] a very stable country [and] stability is precious in the African continent.”
Liu Zhiqin, one of the committee’s 76 members, admitted the decision had divided the group with only 36 voting for Mugabe.
Frankly speaking, there were internal concerns about awarding Mugabe the peace prize. I myself have reservations,” he said.
Mugabe has been in power for such a long time that he could be easily be labelled a dictator, tyrant or despot.
The Daily News, an opposition newspaper in Harare, said it was unclear if Mugabe would travel to China to collect his “shadowy prize” in person .
The prize comes with an award of 500,000 yuan (£51,000) and a gold trophy of the ancient Chinese philosopher whose name it takes.
Qiao argued that Mugabe had provided his people with a much better standard of living than citizens of Syria, Iraq or Afghanistan. “It’s much better than Libya too,” he added.
Jeremy Corbyn’s Full Speech at The 2015 Labour Party Conference
By Dark Politricks
As the Tory right-wing papers have got bored with #piggate they are back to slagging off the new Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
They see any disagreement in the party as a major split, every discussion as a failed policy, and attack Corbyn at every turn.
Maybe it’s because he has increased the Labour party membership more than in recent years, excited young people by honest talking, and isn’t part of the neo-con axis of war establishment that they are angry.
He can see that it has been the recent pointless wars in Libya, Iraq and Syria that have directly caused the mass influx of refugees into Europe whilst the Tories deny any culpability for the mess Libya is now in.
He should take it as a compliment.
If they didn’t think he was popular and a danger to their elite then he would just be ignored, or made fun of like Ed Miliband was.
Instead he is the “most dangerous man in Britain”, someone who will put our nations security at risk by not following the US into every war they want to start.
Someone who is not scared to admit that our nuclear deterrent is a waste of money. It isn’t independent as it relies on US GPS satellites, so we would have to get US permission to fire anyway, so what is the point of it?
Watch his recent Labour conference speech and get a flavour of what he is all about.
Just remember, if we can print money at 0% interest rates to keep the banks afloat by lending it to them so they can then whack up the interest before lending it to us and make free money we can print money for investment, house building and job creation.
This is what he wants to do, socialism NOT for the rich as we currently have but an equal society for all of us.
