Do Like "my articles"?

Then check out the rest. I have written essays on all kinds of topics from Climate Change to 9/11, from Israel to America, from Religion to History and from Internet Surveillence to the rise of the new high tech police state. To see all the articles I have personally written for this site you can visit the Dark Politricks articles section for a full listing.

Your help is required!

The Internet is under attack by big business and big government who are trying to control the flow of information any way they can. Using the threat of Terrorism and Cyber attacks the western world (especially USA/UK/Australian governments) are expanding their power to control internet traffic and recently Google and Verizon signed a deal that will end net neutrality.

What this means is alternative news sites like Dark Politricks and many others will find it harder to bring you the news that the mainstream media wished you didn't know about. This is because they will be either blocked by Chinese style firewalls (as Australia has already introduced) or they will be pushed down the Google rankings by special algorithms that control a sites listing.

Web servers and bandwidth costs money and articles take time to write. Whilst I try to bring you the best of the alternative news every day I have also personally written hundreds of articles for this site and you won't find many one paragraph or half hearted articles with my name at the top of them.

Please donate

Whilst you may not want to donate money to an information clearing house website that collates articles about the war on terror in one place I would like to remind you that:

  • I am asking you to help me continue my OWN writing not the collation of other articles written by others.
  • I have already been kicked off many servers and blogging sites for my own writings due to various reasons.
  • I allow my own work to be re-printed across the web without complaint. Just search Google for Dark Politricks articles that are not on this site to see for yourself. My articles have appeared in many places including, and and many others besides.

So to help continue my own writing I would appreciate any dontations that you feel appropriate, especially if you like one of my articles or essays. Just think of all the extra articles and links as a collection of related news stories that mean you don't have to visit hundreds of different sites each day to get your news about the world of politricks and the war on terror. All money goes towards hosting my own server (not a shared server) and prevents me having to litter the site with flashing adverts as many others do. I realise people are having a tough time in the current economic climate.

Thanks for your continued support.

Competition Between Taliban And ISIS Grows, As ISIS Expands Its Presence In Af-Pak Region

Competition Between Taliban And ISIS Grows, As ISIS Expands Its Presence In Af-Pak Region
By Saman Mohammadi

The blind leading the blind. .. 

The Taliban grew out of U.S., Saudi, and Pakistani support for terrorists in Afghanistan.

ISIS (or Daesh) grew out of U.S., Saudi, Israeli, and Turkish support for terrorists in Syria.

The U.S., Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Israel, and Pakistan now say that they are genuinely fighting the vicious terrorist groups that they created, but reality says otherwise. 

An excerpt from, “Mullah Omar is a fool and illiterate warlord, al-Baghdadi says” Khaama Press, January 29, 2015:

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) chief Abu Bakar al-Baghdadi has called the Taliban supreme leader Mullah Mohammad Omar a fool and illiterate warlord. 

Al-Baghdadi has said that Mullah Omar does not deserve a spritual or political credibility, according to a report by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty which cited reports by the Times.

An excerpt from, “ISIS Recruiter And Former Guantanamo Bay Prisoner Captured By Taliban In Afghanistan” by Alessandria Masi, International Business Times, January 29, 2015:

Mullah Abdul Rauf Khadim is only 33, but hes already been in the Afghan and Pakistani Taliban, detained at Guantanamo Bay, released from prison, become a recruiter for the Islamic State group and, on Wednesday, reportedly captured by the same group that launched his jihadist career. 

The Taliban in Afghanistans southern Helmand province captured Khadim, along with 45 other suspected ISIS members, a Taliban commander told the Afghan news website Pajhwok. The move signals growing tension in the country between the Taliban and ISIS, jihadist groups pursuing the same agenda in theory, but in practice pitted against each other by the recent ISIS proclamation of an Islamic State in Afghanistan too, as well as Syria and Iraq. 

ISIS claims primacy over other Sunni extremist groups and hopes to absorb them. Many groups have, either through force or convenience, already pledged allegiance to self-appointed ISIS Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. However, as ISIS ramps up expansion outside of Iraq and Syria, it has met some powerful opposition, like Yemen’s al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula — and recently the Taliban.

There were 1,587 deaths reported among civilians and security members. Another 4,519 dead were reported among Islamic State militants. The number of wounded was 1,953, including 431 injured militants. These figures are not independently confirmable and should be considered only estimates.

Europe slouching towards anxiety & war

Europe slouching towards anxiety & war

Reuters / Alkis Konstantinidis

An exhibition in Rome could not inadvertently be more graphic in defining the zeitgeist: The Age of Anxiety from Commodus to Diocletian. Well, Roman emperors could barely imagine it would get much worse under the EU.

The tantalizingly tense face-off between Eurogroup head Jeroen Dijsselbloem and new Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has set up the battlefield; the EU won’t accept a unilateral Greece, and Greece wont accept a bailout extension or the diktats of the troika (EU, ECB, IMF).

Legend has already taken over; after Varoufakis was firm on the no troika talk as in no more economic terrorism at the end of their press conference in Athens, Dijsselbloem murmured something in his ear that Greek officials have interpreted as a Pulp Fiction-style I’ma get medieval on your ass.

So now its all-out Athens against the Masters of the Universe (the EU division). Independent observers would be tempted to see it as post-modern Perseus trying to slay the EU Medusa a monster so frightful that no living thing could behold her without being turned into stone.

The Medusa is now the troika. Medusa Queen Merkel and her minions like Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble (we wont be blackmailed ), plus the usual faceless officials using sub-Homeric metaphors such as tied to the mast of confrontation are ramping up the pressure with no debt reduction. After the Dijsselbloem-Varoufakis face-off, it would be up to the European Commission (EC) bureaucratic nightmare to come up with a feasible alternative for a Greek debt write-down.

Syriza is saying it wants to remain in the eurozone, but forget about paying Greeces crushing debt through austerity. So the ball is bound to remain in Brusselss court as much as Dijsselbloem has spun the contrary. And troika pressure will be almost unbearable, as in convincing Athens to honor its debt or else. In practical terms, well be talking about an ultra-complex process of debt restructuring, or more EU funding for Athens, or eventually both.

The Perseus gambit wouldnt be to slay the Medusa while its asleep (Masters of the Universe never sleep); it would be to unilaterally default on a significant portion of the debt. If diplomacy fails, Brussels will then have to impose sanctions (theyre very good at that; see Iran and Russia) but ultimately kick Greece out of the euro the nuclear option that Eurocrats dread more than the Black Death. For the moment, German Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel is definitely bluffing, warning Greek Prime Minister Tsipras that the eurozone could survive without Greece (“We no longer have to worry like we did back then.”)

If, however, Brussels admits a de facto, even partial, default, it would result in Spain, Portugal, Ireland, and scores of other EU sufferers screaming We want the same deal.

The Medusa is rampaging, and hardcore squeezing launched by its myriad of troika serpents will be titanic. The next crucial showdown will be a Brussels summit of EU leaders on February 12. Perseus Tsipras better polish his shield and spear to perfection.

Better call Vlad

Then theres the other crucial vector in this Age of Anxiety remix: Russia.

Moscow could indeed bail outbail out Athens, a possibility which has already been mentioned. So the Western corporate spin about Greece supporting this weeks extension of sanctions against Russian interests is nonsense.

Here is the essential background. And directly from Varoufakis, there is proof that Greece was not even consulted. Another nail in the lavish coffin of the myth of EU democratic practices.

Dont expect puny EU puppets posing as leaders who derive their prestige by being vassals of the amnesiac Empire of Chaos to cultivate any historical memory. Which brings us to Ukraine.

Ukraine was part of Russia for three centuries way longer than Texas and California have been part of the US. Russia giving up Ukraine after the end of the USSR does not hold as a historical precedent to justify the Maidan coup detat, billions of dollars financing internal subversion, and the subsequent looting of Ukraine by US multinationals, Germany, and the City of London. Not to mention the whole saga is mostly and will remain mostly about NATO expansion.

Imagine Washington tolerating Russian nuclear cruise missiles on its strategic red lines of defense the borders with Canada and Mexico. The Empire of Chaos would invade without blinking. Ukraine was and remains such a red line for Russia. And Washington and Brussels always knew it.

Moscow, slowly but surely, is starting to counter-punch on the financial/economic war unleashed by the Masters of the Universe. Moscow has finally and painfully understood that the real Masters of the Universe are those who control central bank credit. The notion that central banking is an independent mechanism is pure fiction; it answers to private banking groups.

In parallel, on the military chessboard, things are getting heavy. Moscow may finally sell’S-300 anti-missile systems to Damascus and Tehran.

Moreover, Russian Armed Forces chief Gen. Valery Gerasimov has been on the record saying Moscow will immediately respond to a US missile defense system that violates the START III Treaty and the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. Pentagon analysts know very well how Russian weapons systems are superior to the US missile defense system.

And just in case puppets from Washington to Brussels are not listening, wait for the Star Wars’S-500 anti-missile system, to be operational by 2017, or even earlier. The’S-500 travels at the speed of 15,480 miles an hour, with a range of 2,174 miles and is capable of shooting down any ICBM Washington can throw at Russia. Translation: Russian airspace sealed to any incoming US nuclear ICBM.

Unlike the loud, bully-bomb-drone-sanction Empire of Chaos, Russia speaks louder, with action, patience, and stealth very much Asian qualities. While Russia is existentially attacked via the oil/ruble/derivatives war, its leaders are silently preparing for the worst.

Gorbachev who knows one or two things about cold wars does have a very serious point; if Washington persists in its folly, this could get terribly ugly, and Europe will be caught in the deadly crossfire.

Dreaming of another EU

Which brings us back to Rome. It does not hurt to imagine what would be an alternative EU, a Roman EU, centered in Rome, Athens, and Istanbul not in Brussels-Frankfurt-Strasbourg. The center of the current EU happens to coincide with the center of the 8th/9th Century Frankish Empire; Charlemagne revisited or, according to some historical strands, the first emperor who tried to unify Europe. Other historical currents privilege an even earlier strand of German raw power tamed by Gallic culture and sophistication.

Id rather channel Gibbon, as I did this week, back to that night in October 1764 when, sitting in meditation in front of the Campidoglio (what a fabulous point of view), after a serious pilgrimage among Roman ruins, he decided to write ‘Decline and Fall,’ the dissolution of a world that was literally founded in stone.

As Oxfords Bryan Ward-Perkins has brilliantly noted, Europe carries at the deeper levels of its psyche the fear that if Rome crumbled, the same can happen to the most superb modern civilizations. And we all know, this current non-elected Eurocrat-ravaged EU which despises Greece, antagonizes Russia, wallows in the mire of Empire of Chaos vassalage, and treats most of its citizens as heavily-taxed garbage could hardly be described as superb.

Is Salman the last king of Saudi Arabia?

Is Salman the last king of Saudi Arabia?

Going Underground with Afshin Rattansi

Watch the full episode here: David Hearst, editor of Middle East Eye, talks to Going Underground host Afshin Rattansi about Saudi Arabia. He says cosying up to them is a well tried policy from Thatcher to Blair, but the difference is that Britain is now beholden to Saudi Arabia and trying to get in with the new regime. He says there was a huge power struggle going on for the throne, with Egyptian anchors used to discredit the then Crown Prince Salman who took orders directly from President Sisi. He says the British were surprised because they don’t have a foreign policy worth the word of policy. Everyone is clambering behind new Deputy Crown Prince Muhammad bin Nayef. He thinks that the Saudi royals are all ‘dead scared’ of ISIS, and also the Muslim Brotherhood, hostile to militant Islam and democratic Islam. According to ousted leader of Iraq al-Maliki, it was Prince Bandar who funded elements of ISIS, to counter Assad. He describes a shifting of alliances, with concern in Egypt because they rely on aid from Saudi Arabia, and it could change the region massively if the Saudis become less interventionist. There is a permanent low-level protest against the government, which has diminished possibly to people going to fight with the Islamic State. He thinks they must liberalise, and bin Nayef could be the person to do that. He wants the whole of the Middle East moving away from dependence on autocracy and Western arms. And with so much that could change in the region, he describes Cameron’s understanding of the situation as primitive and completely unprincipled.
