    Trump’s Afghan Folly
    By Brother Nathanael
    Copyright 2017

    Trump’s got a ‘new strategy’ for Afghanistan.

    Same one, really, but this time ‘we’re going to win.’

    Nothing’s worked so far except enriching Jewish Wall Street and the defense contractors it finances.

    But disaster strikes again.

    [Clip: “Afghanistan is a total and complete disaster. What are we doing? We have all of these horrible events taking place there, we can’t even run our own country, we don’t build our schools, we don’t build our highways, we don’t build anything anymore, what’s wrong with us, what’s wrong with our leadership?”]

    Surrendering policy to war criminals, like Mattis and McMaster, that’s what’s wrong.

    [Clip: “What is going on? Money should be spent in our country, we should rebuild our country, and we should also, by the way, reduce our sixteen trillion dollars in debt. Let’s get with it, get out of Afghanistan. We’ve wasted billions and billions of dollars, and more importantly, thousands and thousands of lives.”]

    What’s a few more thousand lives, Mr Trump?

    What’s a few more trillion in debt?

    It’s called “nation building” miles from nowhere.

    [Clip: “America will continue its support for the Afghan government, and the Afghan military as they confront the Taliban in the field.”]

    Nation building by any other name spends the same.

    Let’s use the 200 million per day spent on the Afghan War to rebuild our infrastructure instead.

    And let Raytheon and Lockheed retool to rebuild our bridges and power grids.

    Tell me, how is ‘killing terrorists’ suddenly going to make us win?

    [Clip: “Ultimately, it is up to the people of Afghanistan to take ownership of their future, to govern their society, and to achieve an everlasting peace. We are a partner and a friend, but we will not dictate to the Afghan people how to live, or how to govern their own complex society. We are not nation-building again. We are killing terrorists.”]

    Seems the more terrorists we ‘kill’ the more there are. Makes for a lousy ‘future’ don’t you think?

    Who’s losing any sleep fretting about the Taliban crossing the Atlantic to blow up the Brooklyn Bridge?

    And blame-games blow lots of smoke too.

    [Clip: “The next pillar of our new strategy is to change the approach and how to deal with Pakistan. We can no longer be silent about Pakistan’s safe havens for terrorist organizations, the Taliban, and other groups that pose a threat to the region and beyond. Pakistan has much to gain from partnering with our effort in Afghanistan. It has much to lose by continuing to harbor criminals and terrorists.”]

    Blaming Pakistan for America’s fiasco just doesn’t cut it.

    After 16 years of a complete failure all of a sudden it’s Pakistan’s fault?

    Whose fault will it be next year when it’s still a failure?

    Trump’s rant only pushes Pakistan closer to China and Russia who’ve been coming to Pakistan’s defense throughout Trump’s threats.

    And if anyone’s aiding terrorists, it’s the US.

    Russia is now warning America to stop dropping supplies to ISIS in northern Afghanistan or else it will intervene.

    You see, there’s lots of untapped mineral wealth in Afghanistan.

    No surprise Trump’s adviser, venture capitalist Stephen Feinberg, wants his military contracting firm, DynCorp, to ‘guard’ those mines.

    Not sure Russia will sit that one out either.

    “Sixteen years and what do you get, a thousand more dead and deeper in debt….”

    And the graveyard of empires will come home to roost in a Trump presidency where folly, Jewish Wall Street, and generals hold hands.

    So sad, so predictable, so many more innocent Afghanis to be squashed by US indecision and military hardware.

    Why bother to vote?

    Obama promised that he would end corruption, end the wars, get out of other peoples countries and close down Guantanamo. That ended well, not.

    He hunted down whistleblowers and murdered foreigners within their own nations, bailed out criminal banks and printed enough money to bring the rest of the world down. I am a sore loser.

    I think my point is that it makes no difference who you vote for, but it is still amazing that democracy somehow works well enough that the best of a very bad bunch gets elected. Which does not say much for the selection on offer.

    The only candidate who voiced any sort of complete and coherent policy and future was Bernie Sanders who, thanks to Debbie The Reptile, had his election stolen.

    Don’t doubt that Pres. Bernie would have been impeached or assassinated by now.

    So who does that leave in charge?

    @All

    This is going to turn into another hundred years war. Jews milking it every minute.

  6. benzion kook August 29, 2017 @ 10:53 pm

    The communist Bernie Sanders said in 2011 that America should be modeled on Venezuela.

    He and his wife are under investigation by the FBI for bank fraud in connection with a defunct for-profit college they ran in Vermont.

  7. Steve Oz August 30, 2017 @ 4:52 am

    Dear Mr kook, your experience with ‘kommunizm’ leaves me more certain than ever that the MSM have got a lot to answer for.

    Whatever you do, don’t tap that little area under your kneecap or you will wake up in emergency, if that is possible in the USofA or Murka to us furners.

    If you have the time to imbibe the Holy Bro then open your mind a bit further and you may stop kicking yourself in the head. Just a suggestion.

    Give it a go sport. Loosen up.

    We may still love you in the morning.

    Trump keeps making the “Eye of Horus” with his right hand, in my opinion. Maybe, it’s just a gesture and maybe it’s the Illuminati-Cabalist coming out.

    He might be a microcosm of the American Christian population which is a thin veneer on the surface like a chocolate coated vanilla ice cream cone. The vanilla is all kinds of occult stuff underneath with worship of the zionist Jew Illuminati globalist empire that snuffs out individual rights.

    My theory is that the anti Christ will come out of the Rothschild Jewish family since they are the most powerful Jews at the apex of the pyramid of Judaism with the capstone being Lucifer or Moloch.

    Let’s say you are going to experience a stroke (not you personally). However you get to pick which side of your body is affected by this stroke. Now do you understand what it is like to elect a President in this country?

    Let’s say you have a candidate for office who is not so great, in fact, they aren’t even a good candidate. How do you get that candidate elected? You find an opposing candidate who is terrible, reprehensible and downright unworthy of public office. Does this explain the 2016 campaign?

    As for what’s happening in Washington, DC these days, it’s not Odysseus and his buddies who were hiding in that horse-shaped wooden sculpture given to the Troyani’s. It was Jar-jar and Goldman-Sach’s hiding within Die Trumpenhorse who are now spreading out within this administration securing their globalist ambitions.

    Next lecture to be announced later.

  10. KathJuliane August 30, 2017 @ 9:04 am

    Dear +BN,

    God bless you for yet another Connect-the-Jew Video, this time directly linked to that lovely archetype of the Military-Industrial Revolving Door General President Mattis’ renewed push for a more widening, generalized, “kinetic” (a military euphemism for “lethal”) war in hapless Afghanistan.

    At this rate, we’re heading for a 31-year war. 31 because otherwise Europe holds that title for the Thirty Year War.

    Pentagon claims there’s only 8400 or so US military troops in Afghanistan.

    However, after the Pentagon’s painful lessons stemming from the Viet Nam War body count game, Pentagon now resorts to a statistical shell game, and will officially publish the number of troops on long-term deployment (I believe the criteria is 12 months or more), while at the same time refrains from publishing short-term deployments, so we really have no idea how many troops, especially special forces, are in Afghanistan at any given time.

    And, because it is a civilian agency, Pentagon doesn’t tally at all the CIA’s paramilitary of special forces usually composed of retired military special forces.

    When showing up in any rare war photos among local brigades, they are usually the Agency “advisers” not wearing any identifying patches on their cammies for plausible deniability purposes.

    Another way Pentagon keeps the body count artificially low is fudging the KIA numbers, by strictly identifying KIA as being a combat death sustained inside the invaded country’s borders.

    If a terminal case on life support still has a weak pulse, the military will attempt to airlift the dying soldier outside of say Afghanistan along with any other critically wounded, so that when he expires, his death is not tallied as technically KIA in-country.

    Who knows how many Pentagon private civilian contractor mercenaries are operating inside Afghanistan? Pentagon has no control over them, and doesn’t keep track of contractor casualties at all. That’s part of the contract. US Government is not held responsible for deaths and disabilities of mercenaries like they are for military vets, responsibilities administered by the ever-appalling Veterans’ Administration.

    Fellow DynCorp war profiteer and Feinberg pal, Eric Prince (brother of Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos), former infamous CEO of Blackwater-Mauls-Iraq, Inc., has some idea, because he has proposed to the White House and Mattis and everywhere else since Trump’s inauguration, publicly talking it up in neocon think tank circles that Afghanistan be privatized and set up like the old British East India Company was as the Raj government of British India.

    Or more evocatively, likens his idea to the old Flying Tigers of China during WWII as contractor paramilitary aviation forces.

    The only problem with this theory is that as I recall, the Flying Tigers, private pilots working in pre-war China who then contracted to the US to assist the Chinese government and military against Japan when WWII broke out, were working as a stop-gap air force until the Allies could arrive.

    Prince gleefully writes:

    “Contractors (Mercenaries), Not Troops, will save Afghanistan!”

    It didn’t work in Iraq when Blackwater was the defacto paramilitary arm of the Provisional Government, it won’t work in Afghanistan, but the Jew York Times ran Eric Prince’s op-ed be all gung-ho for it, pushing his “new, fresh idea” for Afghanistan which will save the Jewmerican taxpayer more than $40 billion a year, or so he claims.
    www.nytimes.com/2017/08/30/opinion/erik-prince-contractors-afghanistan.html?mcubz=3&_r=0

    Eric, you demented Reformed Dutch Protestant and your distorted Calvinistic Capitalist war profiteer ethic, if the US of Israel actually pulled out of Afghanistan in an orderly way, handing organized support management to the Afghanistan government to the countries which actually understand the peoples, cultures, traditions, customs and tribal politics of Afghanistan — like to Russia and its close Central Asian neighbors — it would save the taxpayers a whole lot more money rather than tossing it down the Military-Industrial Contractor Black Hole in the Pentagon.

    The Russians have spent years analyzing, dissecting, critiquing all of the economic, political, military and diplomatic aspects of the 10-year Soviet-Afghanistan war, and all of the many policy mistakes that Moscow made in the way they became so deeply mired in the Afghan crisis.

    The bitter lessons from the Soviet-Afghan war, which Brzezinski and the CIA plotted and set up and intentionally suckered the USSR into intervening in Afghanistan, inform the Kremlin’s foreign and military policies today (along with the lessons from the equally bitter and mismanaged Chechen wars which arose during the 1990s). This analysis forms the basis of Russia’s outstanding successes inside Syria reconciling the warring parties and negotiating ceasefires in order to set the stage for future political solutions and settlement made by the Syrians themselves.

    But really, Franklin said it all — “A penny saved is a penny earned.” The way to save taxpayer money is not spend it on war follies to begin with.

    Trump sees his not-new plan through the eyes of a raven which will steal anything that shines or glitters. He proposes that if Jewmerica steps up his “not-regime-change-war on terrorists” game, the end result is that Afghanistan will reimburse Jewmerica some or all of the $800 billion of taxpayer dollars for 16 years of invasion, war and military occupation so far.

    The only way that could remotely happen is to steal and exploit the Afghanis’ untapped reserves of mineral wealth including immense pockets of rare earth minteral needed for high tech, which of course would not come back into the US Treasury to reimburse the US taxpayer, but as profits dumped into the deep pockets of the corporate military-industrial complex rippling outwards into the vast realm of corporate cronies and Wall Street.

    Virtually all of the Afghanis hate the Jewmerican regime, even if only half, the Taliban, are putting up a resistance against continued occupation.

    Even the Afghanistan government is pushing back and saying they don’t want any more Pentagon “help,” and they want the US completely out. Kabul is saying at this point, “We now have a strong, centralized, national security and defense force.” Kabul and Taliban (and KathJ) are in agreement, Yankee Go Home.

    Both sides may conceivably set aside their differences for the time being to make common cause towards this goal.

    Russia is not supplying weapons to Taliban, but, like Moscow’s been doing in Syria in support of national sovereignty and for the sake of regional stability, have been actively working in the background with Taliban, other Afghan tribes, and the Kabul government to set up conditions for a future political solution arrived at through negotiations and reconciliation of all warring national parties.

    This came in my email the other day from the Intercept:

    THE TALIBAN TRIED TO SURRENDER AND THE U.S. REBUFFED THEM. NOW HERE WE ARE

    DID YOU KNOW that shortly after the U.S. invaded Afghanistan, the Taliban tried to surrender?

    For centuries in Afghanistan, when a rival force had come to power, the defeated one would put down their weapons and be integrated into the new power structure — obviously with much less power, or none at all.

    That’s how you do with neighbors you have to continue to live with.

    This isn’t a football game, where the teams go to different cities when it’s over. That may be hard for us to remember, because the U.S. hasn’t fought a protracted war on its own soil since the Civil War.

    So when the Taliban came to surrender, the U.S. turned them down repeatedly, in a series of arrogant blunders spelled out in Anand Gopal’s investigative treatment of the Afghanistan war, “No Good Men Among the Living.”

    Only full annihilation was enough for the Bush administration. They wanted more terrorists in body bags.

    The problem was that the Taliban had stopped fighting, having either fled to Pakistan or melted back into civilian life. Al Qaeda, for its part, was down to a handful of members.

    So how do you kill terrorists if there aren’t any?

    Simple: Afghans that the U.S. worked with understood the predicament their military sponsors were in, so they fabricated bad guys.

    Demand has a way of creating supply, and the U.S. was paying for information that led to the death or capture of Taliban fighters.

    Suddenly there were Taliban everywhere. Score-settling ran amok; all you had to do to get your neighbor killed or sent to Guantánamo was tell the U.S. they were members of the Taliban.

    Doors would be kicked in, no questions asked. The men left standing became warlords, built massive fortunes, and shipped their wealth abroad.

    “We are not nation-building again,” President Donald Trump declared Monday night. Well, we never were, unless building high-rises with looted cash in Dubai counts.

    After a few years of this charade, after their surrender efforts were repeatedly rebuffed, the old Taliban started picking up guns again.

    When they were driven from power, the population was happy to see them go. The U.S. managed to make them popular again.

    Liberals then spent the 2008 presidential campaign complaining that the U.S. had “ignored” Afghanistan — when, in reality, the parts of the country without troop presence were the only parts at peace, facing no insurgency against the Afghan government, such as it was.

    Then President Barack Obama came in and launched a surge in troop levels while simultaneously announcing a withdrawal — coupled with a heightened focus on night raids, relying on the same system of unreliable intelligence that had netted so many uninvolved people already.

    And now Trump says he has a new and better strategy.

    More: www.theintercept.com/2017/08/22/afghanistan-donald-trump-taliban-surrender-here-we-are/

    Afghanis say “Thanks, but no thanks. We don’t need a macabre replay of the Afghani version of Ground Hog Day for the next 17 years.”

    Yes, now here we are.

    As for Pakistan, Bush’s ‘Global War on Terror’ with Obama next to carry water for Israel and their Yinon Plan, cost the Pakistanis 70,000 lives and, according to their experts and politicians, caused $100 billion in losses to the national economy.

    Pakistan, which now has strengthening economic ties to China and is a pivotal to the trans-Eurasia New Silk Road project, is wising up to this “beggar-thy-neighbor” White House strategy pushing neocon Global War Economy.

    Islamabad is worried and angry about Trump’s announced plans for Pakistan. The entire political class of quarreling parties of every description are suddenly unified around Trump’s obnoxious insults, and the common theme is for Islamabad to actually count the costs to the Pakistani people, and stop cooperating with the US.

    They’ve admonished Trump and Pentagon to remember that the only open road into Afghanistan accessible to the military runs through Pakistan.

    Pakistan and Afghanistan not only border each other, but both border Iran, where the CIA has long been stirring up ethno-religious unrest. Some of the latest attacks in Afghanistan have been targeting Shi’ites.

    With all of +BN’s coaching by now about Israel as the moving force behind Jewmerica’s rabid, foaming at the mouth hostility towards Iran, we surely can see what the subterranean strategic goals probably are in unsettling and destabilizing Iran, or at least an attempt to tie up Iranian forces and the government.

    There’s been a recent dramatic escalation of civil unrest inside Iran, especially among the Iranian Kurds, and ISIS-related terrorism, backed by Jew-know-who, with the idea of stirring up more trouble and foment instability inside Iran.

    Not only that, Afghanistan is a major gateway into Central Asia and the southern underbelly of the Russian Federation. Brezinski’s old Grand Chessboard strategic goal was to capture and control Central Asia and wear down Russia and block China’s regional economic influence, and thus Jewmerica would control the entire landmass of the Eurasian continent.

    Such are the hubristic delusions of grandeur Trump holds in his quest to Make Israel Greater Again.

  11. Lerot T. Washington August 30, 2017 @ 9:43 am

    Afghanistan, Dagestan, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan and Armenia Constitutes the soft underbelly of Russia. The Russians WILL intervene in Afghanistan, the US can count on that.

    Unlike Syria, Afghanistan is just miles away from the Russian border. The US is making a sad mistake if it thinks it can use it’s proxy forces it transported to Afghanistan to destabilize Russia, unlike the first Russian experience in the 80’s.

    This time the Russians may use nuclear weapons to wipe them clean and ZATO/US will not be able to do a damn thing about it.

    Putin already said as much.

    I think the US wants to stay in Afghanistan to protect the drug trade. The drug trade generates all kinds of money for Mossad/CIA black ops that cannot be traced.

    I think the Mossad controls the CIA and not vice versa.

    The Mossad has access to all kinds of Rothschild bribery money the CIA does not have, and whoever has the most bribery money always wins.

    Steve Oz, Bernie Sanders is a liar. He used different strategies and talk to trick people in different ways than Hilary, but they work with the same Wall Street people.

    He and his wife are corrupt. He represents Wall Street.

    I feel sad for the people who wanted so much to believe, but it was a game to trick people into supporting the Usual Suspects

    Just like the Wall Street people use the politics of “progressive” or “diversity” or “wars for peace” and a lot of other feel good topics to get support for their stealing and their dictatorships. They entrap naive people with these games.

    KathJuliane, thank you so much for your posts.

    I have thanked you before, but what you write answers so many of the questions and suspicions I have about many issues.

    You are a wealth of information second only to Brother Nathanael.

  17. Fair August 30, 2017 @ 10:48 am

    @KathJuliane

    One of Brzezinski’s younger relatives, who has written a lot of propaganda for the gang through either their media or through books, is married to — no surprise — a yenta Wall Streeter who pilfers via Quebec (though they now got shipped from Canada into the US to set up operations).

    His politics that he spews while posing as a journalist and an “expert” directly aids the profits of, no surprise, his wife and her Wall Street cronies, and their global associates, like the Rothschilds.

    There is not even the pretense of public disclosure of conflict of interest and problems with bias. He is sold to the public as a journalist and great thinker. A bad joke.

    He churns out his political deceit and manipulation to an ignorant public, while his wife works hard to increase the profits of the war profiteers in the US and other countries.

    @ +BN

    I couldn’t agree with you more, Br. Nat, every word you wrote in this Article and said in your Video is right on the mark.

    Donald Trump’s just a puppet, despite his huge ego. His biggest mistakes were filling his administration with Bolshevik Jews and warmongering retired generals; letting Steve Bannon leave the White House and return to Breitbart News; yelling threats at N. Korea’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un; and, worst of all, announcing an increase of US troops in Afghanistan.

    During his campaign and at his inauguration, Trump had pledged to the American people to end the endless wars of aggression worldwide and concentrate on rebuilding this nation’s crumbling infrastructure. But now, we’re seeing the results of his breach of those pledges.

    All we need do is just look at the devastating floods in Texas (and now, Louisiana) from Hurricane Harvey. The Army Corps of Engineers are responsible for maintaining the levees’ ability to hold back most of the floodwaters, but where were they? Where are they now?

    There are parts of Houston that have been rendered uninhabitable by the extremely heavy rains and the floods they created. Although he’s acted quickly in aiding the affected areas, Trump still has to accept responsibility for the lack of building the levees high enough to prevent such heavy flooding.

    Instead of ordering the Army Corps of Engineers to do just that, the Donald was too distracted with his Afghan conundrum, discussing the surge of some 4800 more US troops to Afghanistan as cannon fodder for the Zionist Entity of Israel with his 3 warmongering ex-generals, John Kelly, James “Mad Dog” Mattis and H. R. McMaster.

    At least he did visit Houston and saw the devastation first hand; whereas, G. W. Bush only saw the devastation of New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina from the air and never visited the city in person.

    “Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” This quote was made by Spanish writer/historian Georges Santayana years ago and is just as relevant today as it was in his time.

    The other quote I’ve seen is “Insanity is doing the same actions over and over and over again and expecting different results.” Both quotes apply to Trump’s decisions regarding both N. Korea and Afghanistan.

    God bless you forever for your fine works, Brother.

    More of Mattis handiwork in Afghanistan and elsewhere today.

    This is going on all of the time in Syria and Iraq as well, now that Mattis’ war on civilians has the Trumpean imprimatur.

    Pentagon is great friends with the genocidal Saudis, who consistently get whipped and humiliated by the underfed, lightly armed, extremely determined Houthis on the battlefield in desert mountain warfare, or sink vessels of the Saudi navy.

    In revenge, the Saudis routinely conduct airstrikes on Yemeni non-combatant homes, villages, apartment blocks, hospitals, schools, reception halls where weddings and/or funerals are being conducted, clinics, water and sewage treatment infrastructure necessary for survival in any way they possibly can.

    There is considerable suspicion that the raging cholera epidemic in Yemen primarily in rebel-held areas, combined with Saudi blockade preventing humanitarian and medical aid, may have been deliberately started by weaponized cholera bacteria.

    NATO Airstrikes Kill at Least 16 Civilians in Western Afghanistan

    Attacks Targeted ‘Taliban Base,’ Expanded to Entire Civilian Neighborhood

    At least 16 civilians, including a number of women and children, were killed and many others wounded Monday in western Afghanistan, when NATO warplanes carried out a flurry of airstrikes in Herat Province’s Zerkoh District, aiming to hit a “Taliban base.”

    The raid started with strikes on the Taliban base, but quickly got out of hand when survivors of that strike started fleeing in all directions, and the NATO planes responded by bombing civilian homes in the same neighborhood, assuming the Taliban had taken refuge there.

    Provincial officials say a number of Taliban fighters were killed in the strike, 16 to 18 depending on the source, but all seem to agree that the attack also resulted in substantial numbers of civilian deaths.

    Though the Defense Ministry had initially credited the Afghan Air Force with the strike, they later admitted it was a NATO operation.

    NATO, for its part, has been unusually silent on the operation, having made no statements confirming or denying the incident, nor their requisite claim that they’d heard reports of civilian deaths and intend to investigate.

    Talks center on the basis of a future peace process, including a constitution and the political future of Afghanistan, though Afghan officials say that this is still far short of the sot of discussion that could lead to real peace talks.

    The talks take place in part through the Pakistani government serving as an intermediary for some Taliban figures, but also through the Gulf state of Qatar, which hosts a Taliban office originally opened to serve the last peace talks.

    Officials revealed some very specific issues have been sorted out, with the Taliban wanting special courts to oversee legal challenges related to land seizures since the 2001 US invasion, and agreeing women can hold virtually all political offices except president and supreme court judges.

    These sorts of details suggest the talks are really a fair distance along, despite them not being actual peace talks, and there still being no timetable for them to become such. The US, committed to further escalation, has not commented on this matter.

    Antiwar.com: Tribesmen Rally Against Trump for Accusing Pakistan of Harboring ‘Agents of Chaos’

    Demonstrations Against US Held Nationwide

    Allegations from President Trump that Pakistan is harboring “agents of chaos,” and that this is why the Afghan War hasn’t been won yet, are fueling growing annoyance from Pakistani officials, and now a major backlash from the Pakistani public.

    Thousands of demonstrators nationwide, but particularly in and around the northern tribal areas, holding Pakistani flags and chanting anti-US slogans, while complaining that Trump is holding Pakistan responsible for America’s own military failures.

    US officials have long favored publicly blaming Pakistan for the Afghan War going poorly, but Trump’s speech was on a much bigger stage, and fueled a backlash among Pakistani officials which has trickled down to the public.

    The US war in Afghanistan has already fueled considerable anti-US sentiment within Pakistan, with spillover violence and a US drone war against Pakistan’s tribal areas leading to various levels of unrest.

    This has been a complicating factor in the US war, as public anger obliges the Pakistani government to limit support for US arms shipments through their territory, and has at times led to outright border closures.
    ( antiwar.com/2017/08/29/tribesmen-rally-against-trump-for-accusing-pakistan-of-harboring-agents-of-chaos/ )

    Good God, Trump has even managed to get the Baluchi nationalists’ backs up, mentioned as the “tribesmen” in the last Antiwar.com article, and they are siding with the Pakistan government’s fury against the District of Criminals, Inc.

    Trump just may have roasted the goose that lay the golden eggs from his apparent congenital inability to do nothing but open his mouth to exchange feet.

    Who are the Balochis?

    Balochistan in Pakistan is one of four provinces in Pakistan, and has been ripe to blow for quite a while. It forms the southwestern region of the country. Its provincial capital and largest city is Quetta.

    It has borders with Punjab and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas to the northeast, Sindh to the east and southeast, the Arabian Sea to the south, Iran to the west and Afghanistan to the north and northwest.

    As far as greater Balochistan region goes, as of 2008 it was estimated that there were between eight and nine million Baloch people living in Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan, subdivided between over 130 tribes. They are considered an Indo-Iranian people, and are Sunni Muslim.

    The insurgency in Balochistan is a intermittent guerrilla war waged by Baloch nationalists against the governments of Pakistan and Iran in the Balochistan region, which covers Balochistan Province in southwestern Pakistan, Sistan and Baluchestan Province in southeastern Iran, and the Balochistan region of southern Afghanistan.

    Balochistan province in Pakistan is rich in natural resources like natural gas, oil, coal, copper, sulphur, fluoride and gold, this is the least developed province in Pakistan. Armed groups demand greater control of the province’s natural resources and political autonomy. Baloch separatists have attacked civilians from other ethnicities in the province.

    In the 2010s, attacks against the Shia community by sectarian groups — though not always directly related to the political struggle — have risen, contributing to tensions in Balochistan.

    In Pakistan’s Balochistan province, insurgencies by Baloch nationalists have been fought in 1948, 1958–59, 1962–63 and 1973–77, with an ongoing and reportedly stronger, broader insurgency beginning in 2003.

    And Trump has managed to turn out the Balochis for a “Reject the Rhetoric — Down with America” rally, burning the US and Indian flags, along with a Trump effigy as part of their demonstration.

    Via Sputnik: WATCH: Thousands of Pakistanis Rally to ‘Reject the Rhetoric,’ Burn Trump Effigy

    Pakistanis in a major rally in Quetta have responded forcefully to US President Donald Trump’s suggestion that their government has harbored jihadist elements within its borders.

    “Today, with the grace of God, thousands of people have come out into the streets,” a protester in Pakistan’s Balochistan province declared, to demonstrate Pakistan’s denial of US President Donald Trump’s accusation that the country provides safe haven for terrorists.

    Antiwar: US Military Battles Syrian Rebels Armed by CIA

    Rebels Shot at US Troops Operating Near Manbij

    US ground troops were attacked outside of the Syrian city of Manbij today [Aug 29], according to coalition spokesman Col. Ryan Dillon.

    They came under fire from Syrian rebels allied with Turkey, and US forces returned fire before fleeing back into Manbij.

    This is a fight that many have feared was coming for months, and is particularly significant because the Syrian rebels attacking the US troops are the same rebel forces that the US was directly arming through CIA arms smuggling operations for years.

    With the CIA program ended, the rebels are now aligned with Turkey, and Turkey has made clear since their invasion of Syria that they intended to try to capture Manbij militarily, to expel Kurdish forces.

    It is only the presence of US troops in Manbij that has deterred NATO member Turkey from attacking the city.

    But Turkey’s been very publicly griping about the US support for the Kurds. That, combined with the Turkish-backed rebels claiming the US “abandoned” them by cutting aid, appears to have finally provoked some fighting.

    This puts a final exclamation point on what a bad idea the CIA arms program turned out to be, as not only did it not accomplish the regime change goals of the time, it’s armed up rebel factions that are now eager to fight US troops.

    While Turkey clearly has an interest in preventing this going too far, it’s unlikely this is the last of the US clash with these rebels.

    AntiWar.com: Trump: Talking With North Korea Is ‘Not the Answer’

    Contradicts Comments From Tillerson, Mattis

    Continuing to ratchet up the rhetoric on North Korea, President Trump once again disavowed assurances from his cabinet that the goal is a diplomatic solution, declaring today that “talking is not the answer” and claiming the US has been “paying them extortion money for 25 years.”

    Trump did not elaborate on this claim, and that fueled considerable speculation about what exactly this “extortion money” was.

    The best guess seems to be that he was referring to humanitarian food aid the US has intermittently provided to North Korea in the past.

    Either way, the more significant part is that President Trump, for the umpteenth time since taking office, has rejected the idea of talking with North Korea, a narrative which combined with his constant threats to attack North Korea has fueled major concern of an imminent war.

    It’s also undercut the rest of his cabinet. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, speaking Sunday, described the US strategy on North Korea as exerting “peaceful pressure” to try to get them to the negotiating table.

    Secretary of Defense James Mattis insisted today that the US is “never out of diplomatic solutions” and still discussing possible avenues to make a deal.

    While Trump’s comments aren’t in keeping with his cabinet’s, they at the very least seem more honest on his administration’s approach to North Korea, as repeated efforts by China and South Korea to get the US to the negotiating table have been dismissed out of hand.

    …[P]roposals that would see North Korea scrapping their nuclear and missile testing programs for a drawdown in the US military buildup along their southern border was spurned as unacceptable from the US perspective because it involved them having to make any concessions at all to get much larger concessions from the North.

    Far from exploring myriad diplomatic options, the US seems to be betting the house on either managing to somehow convince North Korea to unilaterally disarm amid US threats to attack, or see tensions continue to skyrocket until a disastrous war results.

    Iran, Again

    Will Israel start a new war? — Philip Giraldi

    When politicians are feeling the heat, they start a war and their popularity goes up even if the war is unnecessary or completely ridiculous.

    Donald Trump, the presidential candidate who promised that he would not take the nation into another Middle Eastern war, did so when he launched a fifty-nine cruise missile barrage against a Syrian Air Base even before he knew for sure what had happened on the ground.

    It was totally stupid but proved to be popular, even among talking heads and Congressmen, some of whom described his action as “presidential” in the best sense of the word.

    It’s the same in Israel. For those who have not been following developments there, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been under pressure due to an ongoing investigation for corruption.

    One of the truly great things about Israel is that while they have a lot of corrupt politicians, just like everywhere else, they actually investigate, indict, prosecute, convict and send them to jail.

    The betting is that Netanyahu will soon be in prison, so he has been responding in the time-honored fashion by threatening his neighbors and hinting at the possibility of increased military action and even war.

    If there is a war going on, he believes, probably correctly, that no one will want to remove him.

    In an amicable recent meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin, Netanyahu stressed that there are some red lines that Israel will not allow to be crossed, while also suggesting that some of them have already been violated, most notably through the alleged construction of an Iranian military base inside Syria.

    Netanyahu provided Putin with “top secret intelligence” to make his point and told the Russian premier that “Iran is making an accelerated effort to entrench itself militarily in Syria. This poses a danger to Israel, the Middle East and in my opinion the world itself.”

    Netanyahu characteristically depicted himself as restrained in his responses, telling Putin that Israel had taken only limited action in Syria against Hezbollah supply lines, but that was a lie as Israel has also hit Syrian army positions.

    Netanyahu described an Iran that is largely a fantasy creation of his own Foreign Ministry, “We don’t for a second forget that Iran continues to threaten Israel’s destruction on a daily basis.

    “It arms terrorist organizations and initiates terror itself. It is developing intercontinental ballistic missiles with the intention to equip them with nuclear warheads.”

    He went on to claim that his strategic objective was to prevent the development of an Iranian controlled land bridge, described as “territorial continuity,” that would extend through Iraq, Syria and Lebanon to the Mediterranean Sea.

    The reality is, however, somewhat different, that Israel has long preferred chaos in Syria since it eliminates any threat from a unified and powerful government in Damascus.

    But just as nature abhors a vacuum that policy had a considerable downside with Iranian supported militias and Revolutionary Guard units increasingly become part of the conflict, picking up the slack where the Syrian Army has been too overstretched to operate.

    Iranian influence over Syria, both overtly and covertly, will continue after Damascus eliminates the last vestiges of al-Qaeda affiliates and ISIS, not to mention the rag-tag “moderate rebels.”

    And Iran will have standing behind it the Syrian Army, Iraqi Shi’a militias, and Russian firepower.

    This has meant that the Israeli plan to have a chronically weak state across its border has backfired, bringing into the fighting and post-war reconfiguration Iran, which Tel Aviv fears most as a regional adversary.

    So Israel has two strong motives to begin a war with Iran, one political and the other ostensibly linked to national security.

    Ironically, however, it also knows, and has even admitted, that Iran does not actually pose any threat against a nuclear armed Israel that has complete air superiority over any or even all of its neighbors.

    The often-cited land bridge threat is also a bit of a chimera, as whether it could potentially exist or not depends on effective interaction with Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq, all of which have their own political dynamics and are somewhat wary of Iranian involvement.

    If there is any actual threat against Israel it comes from Hezbollah in Lebanon, which is an independent player even though it has strong ties to Tehran, but even in that case the threat is not as serious as fear-mongering government leaders have claimed.

    All of which is not to suggest that Iran is toothless if Israel were to get really aggressive. Hezbollah would undoubtedly unleash its missile arsenal against Israeli cities, some of which would get through, and any attack on Iran using aircraft would be confronted by formidable air defenses.

    Iran could also strike back against Israel using its ballistic missiles, all of which means that attacking Iran would be far from cost-free.

    From Netanyahu’s point of view, it is far better to stage an incident that brings in Washington and then allows Uncle Sam to do the heavy lifting.

    THE ABC’S OF JIHAD IN AFGHANISTAN * Courtesy, USA
    By Joe Stephens and David B. Ottaway
    Washington Post, 23 March 2002
    [Posted 3 April 2002]
    =======================================

    *As Afghan schools reopen today, the United States has delivered 4 million radical Islamist texbooks. More are on the way.* (See text below).

    In the twilight of the Cold War, the United States spent millions of dollars to supply Afghan schoolchildren with textbooks filled with violent images and militant Islamic teachings, part of covert attempts to spur resistance to the Soviet occupation.

    The primers, which were filled with talk of jihad and featured drawings of guns, bullets, soldiers and mines, have served since then as the Afghan school system’s core curriculum.

    Even the Taliban used the American-produced books, though the radical movement scratched out human faces in keeping with its strict fundamentalist code.

    As Afghan schools reopen today, the United States is back in the business of providing schoolbooks. But now it is wrestling with the unintended consequences of its successful strategy of stirring Islamic fervor to fight communism.

    What seemed like a good idea in the context of the Cold War is being criticized by humanitarian workers as a crude tool that steeped a generation in violence.

    Last month, a U.S. foreign aid official said, workers launched a “scrubbing” operation in neighboring Pakistan to purge from the books all references to rifles and killing.

    Many of the 4 million texts being trucked into Afghanistan, and millions more on the way, still feature Koranic verses and teach Muslim tenets.

    The White House defends the religious content, saying that Islamic principles permeate Afghan culture and that the books “are fully in compliance with U.S. law and policy.”

    Legal experts, however, question whether the books violate a constitutional ban on using tax dollars to promote religion.

    Organizations accepting funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development must certify that tax dollars will not be used to advance religion.

    The certification states that AID “will finance only programs that have a secular purpose. . . . AID-financed activities cannot result in religious indoctrination of the ultimate beneficiaries.”

    The issue of textbook content reflects growing concern among U.S. policymakers about school teachings in some Muslim countries in which Islamic militancy and anti-Americanism are on the rise.

    A number of government agencies are discussing what can be done to counter these trends.

    President Bush and first lady Laura Bush have repeatedly spotlighted the Afghan textbooks in recent weeks.

    Last Saturday, Bush announced during his weekly radio address that the 10 million U.S.-supplied books being trucked to Afghan schools would teach “respect for human dignity, instead of indoctrinating students with fanaticism and bigotry.”

    The first lady stood alongside Afghan interim leader Hamid Karzai on Jan. 29 to announce that AID would give the University of Nebraska at Omaha $6.5 million to provide textbooks and teacher training kits.

    AID officials said in interviews that they left the Islamic materials intact because they feared Afghan educators would reject books lacking a strong dose of Muslim thought.

    The agency removed its logo and any mention of the U.S. government from the religious texts, AID spokeswoman Kathryn Stratos said.

    “It’s not AID’s policy to support religious instruction,” Stratos said. “But we went ahead with this project because the primary purpose . . . is to educate children, which is predominantly a secular activity.”

    Some legal experts disagreed. A 1991 federal appeals court ruling against AID’s former director established that taxpayers’ funds may not pay for religious instruction overseas, said Herman Schwartz, a constitutional law expert at American University, who litigated the case for the American Civil Liberties Union.

    Ayesha Khan, legal director of the nonprofit Americans United for Separation of Church and State, said the White House has “not a legal leg to stand on” in distributing the books.

    “Taxpayer dollars cannot be used to supply materials that are religious,” she said.

    Published in the dominant Afghan languages of Dari and Pashtu, the textbooks were developed in the early 1980s under an AID grant to the University of Nebraska-Omaha and its Center for Afghanistan Studies.

    The agency spent $51 million on the university’s education programs in Afghanistan from 1984 to 1994.

    During that time of Soviet occupation, regional military leaders in Afghanistan helped the U.S. smuggle books into the country.

    They demanded that the primers contain anti-Soviet passages. Children were taught to count with illustrations showing tanks, missiles and land mines, agency officials said.

    They acknowledged that at the time it also suited U.S. interests to stoke hatred of foreign invaders.

    “I think we were perfectly happy to see these books trashing the Soviet Union,” said Chris Brown, head of book revision for AID’s Central Asia Task Force.

    AID dropped funding of Afghan programs in 1994. But the textbooks continued to circulate in various versions, even after the Taliban seized power in 1996.

    Officials said private humanitarian groups paid for continued reprintings during the Taliban years. Today, the books remain widely available in schools and shops, to the chagrin of international aid workers.

    “The pictures [in] the texts are horrendous to school students, but the texts are even much worse,” said Ahmad Fahim Hakim, an Afghan educator who is a program coordinator for Cooperation for Peace and Unity, a Pakistan-based nonprofit.

    An aid worker in the region reviewed an unrevised 100-page book and counted 43 pages containing violent images or passages.

    The military content was included to “stimulate resistance against invasion,” explained Yaquib Roshan of Nebraska’s Afghanistan center. “Even in January, the books were absolutely the same . . . pictures of bullets and Kalashnikovs and you name it.”

    During the Taliban era, censors purged human images from the books. One page from the texts of that period shows a resistance fighter with a bandolier and a Kalashnikov slung from his shoulder. The soldier’s head is missing.

    Above the soldier is a verse from the Koran. Below is a Pashtu tribute to the mujaheddin, who are described as obedient to Allah.

    Such men will sacrifice their wealth and life itself to impose Islamic law on the government, the text says.

    “We were quite shocked,” said Doug Pritchard, who reviewed the primers in December while visiting Pakistan on behalf of a Canada-based Christian nonprofit group.

    “The constant image of Afghans being natural warriors is wrong. Warriors are created. If you want a different kind of society, you have to create it.”

    After the United States launched a military campaign last year, the United Nations’ education agency, UNICEF, began preparing to reopen Afghanistan’s schools, using new books developed with 70 Afghan educators and 24 private aid groups.

    In early January, UNICEF began printing new texts for many subjects but arranged to supply copies of the old, unrevised U.S. books for other subjects, including Islamic instruction.

    Within days, the Afghan interim government announced that it would use the old AID-produced texts for its core school curriculum. UNICEF’s new texts could be used only as supplements.

    Earlier this year, the United States tapped into its $296 million aid package for rebuilding Afghanistan to reprint the old books, but decided to purge the violent references.

    About 18 of the 200 titles the United States is republishing are primarily Islamic instructional books, which agency officials refer to as “civics” courses. Some books teach how to live according to the Koran, Brown said, and “how to be a good Muslim.”

    UNICEF is left with 500, 000 copies of the old “militarized” books, a $200,000 investment that it has decided to destroy, according to U.N. officials.

    On Feb. 4, Brown arrived in Peshawar, the Pakistani border town in which the textbooks were to be printed, to oversee hasty revisions to the printing plates.

    Ten Afghan educators labored night and day, scrambling to replace rough drawings of weapons with sketches of pomegranates and oranges, Brown said.

    “We turned it from a wartime curriculum to a peacetime curriculum,” he said.

    Taliban Using Jihadist Textbooks…Supplied by the U.S.

    The next generation of radical Muslim fundamentalists in Afghanistan is learning how to hate the United States through textbooks made by the United States.

    This story of shortsighted, unintended consequences begins in the 1980s after the former Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan.

    As part of the U.S. campaign to undermine Soviet control over the country, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) oversaw the creation of school books in local Afghan languages that taught children how to become jihadists.

    The books, such as The Alphabet for Jihad Literacy, were produced for USAID by the University of Nebraska Omaha (which, years later, was apparently paid $6.5 million for a similar book contract, according to First Lady Laura Bush during her appearance with Afghan leader Hamid Karzai in 2002).

    The books were reportedly smuggled into Afghanistan with the help of the CIA and the ISI, the Pakistani military intelligence organization.

    The Soviet Union pulled out of Afghanistan in 1988.

    The USAID textbooks, however, are still being used, only now by the Taliban as it seeks to recruit new warriors to attack, among others, American soldiers stationed in Afghanistan.

    Duplicated copies of the U.S. textbooks have also surfaced in Pakistan.

    The books are “filled with talk of jihad and featured drawings of guns, bullets, soldiers and mines,” according to The Washington Post.

    One sample entry states that the letter “T” is for “topak” (gun). An example of word usage follows: “My uncle has a gun. He does jihad with the gun.”

    The school books “have served since then as the Afghan school system’s core curriculum,” the Post’s Joe Stephens and David B. Ottaway reported back in 2002.

    That year, UNICEF managed to destroy at least half a million of the made-in-USA books.

    However, not only did many of the books survive, but—according to a recent Post article—the Taliban is reprinting the books to continue the unforeseen legacy of American tax dollars going to help those who want to destroy the U.S.

    Antiwar.com: Pentagon Admits Far More Troops in Afghanistan Than Official Figure

    Confirms That They’ve Been Lying About Troop Levels for Years

    Confirming long-standing speculations to that effect, the Pentagon today admitted that the 8,400 US troops that are in Afghanistan according to all official documents is not an accurate count, and that there are actually 11,000 US troops in the country.

    [That’s story B because they were called out on it, but they are still lyng. There’s probably many more from various clandestine military special forces operation groups.

    Still no mention of how many Pentagon contractor mercenaries are in Afghanistan, the costs of which are perpetually buried in very bad Pentagon bookkeeping; nor a whisper of course, about CIA’s paramilitary Special Activities Division’s Special Operations Group and Political Action Group special forces inside Afghanistan. Agency has long been involved in the international drug trade and organized crime, and Afghanistan is merely one of the CIA’s dope plantations. - Kj]

    Pentagon officials admitted that they have routinely “lowballed” their troop levels across multiple wars, and Secretary of Defense James Mattis insisted that “this way of doing business is over,” and wants more transparency on the matter.

    [There’s translucence, and then there’s transparent, and then there’s the funhouse mirrors. There’s absolutely no way Mattis and the Pentagon are turning over a new leaf and becoming transparent and accountable to the American people.-Kj]

    How that’s being addressed remains to be seen, however, as President Trump has sought to make troop levels officially secret across these war zones, and Pentagon officials had previously indicated that lying about troop levels in Iraq and Syria would be resolved by not giving out any numbers to the American public at all anymore.

    Today’s comments suggest more interest in giving out those figures within the Pentagon, though it’s not clear Trump has changed his mind.

    NEO: Afghanistan: America’s Endless War

    The US predicated its war in Afghanistan on the attacks of September 11, 2001. But the enemy it fights is an enemy of its own creation.

    America’s attempts to rebuild Afghanistan in its own image suffers from corruption, incompetence, and because of a determined, nationwide resistance to foreign occupation.

    Only by placing the spotlight on America’s ongoing, unending occupation, can policymakers be forced to bring the war to an end.

    KathJuliane,

    About the jihadist textbooks to encourage younger Afghans to commit terrorism against the Russians:

    Is this along the same lines as the American State Department sending funds and support to the Chechens to commit acts of terror against Russians?

    Which resulted in Chechens in Boston committing an act of terror with the welfare money that they were supplied with by the American government?

    The US government has been subverted by Jewish Organized Crime using tax money, government departments, and the military to train terrorists. All this talk about the evils of terrorism, and the United States was hijacked by the clan to foment terrorism.

    AMERICAN SOLDIERS REVEAL SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT WAR ON TERROR

    “The real terrorist was me”.

    Consortium News/The National Interest: The Same Ol’ Afghan War Fallacies

    Unless President Trump can pull off a peace deal with the Taliban, his Afghan War policy is following the same bloody and futile path that his predecessors took, as ex-CIA analyst Paul R. Pillar describes.

    By Paul R. Pillar

    President Trump’s statement on Afghanistan has numerous shortcomings. It portrays as a “new strategy” what is instead a familiar kicking of a can down the road.

    It combines Trump’s habit of heaping blame on his predecessors with a warmed-over version of what those predecessors did in Afghanistan.

    It declares a determination to “win” while leaving one guessing as to exactly what a win would mean in Afghanistan.

    It fails to address underlying problems of governance in that country.

    It gives no basis for expecting or even hoping that the U.S. military expedition there will not go on forever.

    Added to these features is a further notion that Trump shares with many others, including observers who in other respects are critical of his policy.

    This is the idea that there is a direct connection between extremists having a physical presence in a distant land and the United States facing a terrorist threat at home.

    Trump used the term safe haven four times in his speech. He declared that the basic purpose of the military expedition in Afghanistan was, “We must stop the resurgence of safe havens that enable terrorists to threaten America.”

    One hears this same idea over and over. The current U.S. military commander in Afghanistan, General John W. Nicholson, Jr., says, “The requirement to keep pressure on these terror groups to prevent another attack on our homeland .?.?. fundamentally, that is why we are here.”

    Such statements — and not only about Afghanistan — are minor rephrasing of the old notion of “fight them over there or else we’ll have to fight them at home.”

    That notion is not valid, and never has been. The very physical distance involved works against the relevance of foreign havens to terrorist threats against the homeland. One cannot drive a truck bomb, or even the ingredients for one, across the Atlantic Ocean.

    To the extent any physical space is required to prepare a terrorist attack, a house or apartment in or near the city being targeted is — as a long history of terrorist incidents has demonstrated — much more useful to terrorists than a piece of real estate on another continent.

    Very little safe space of any sort is required for high-impact terrorism.
    After the recently discovered terrorist cell in Spain suffered the mishap of accidentally blowing up the house they were using in a Catalonian village to prepare explosives, they turned to the no-space-required technique of renting vehicles and using them to run down people in the street — the most popular terrorist modus operandi in the West in recent months.

    As for the terrorist-related functions of recruitment and operational coordination, most of that occurs not in any physical space but in cyberspace.

    The ‘Safe Haven’ Myth

    Even if the idea of a foreign safe haven being critical to international terrorist operations were valid, it could not be a sound basis for justifying a military expedition in any one country.

    Havens are fungible, and extremists driven from one place can set up shop somewhere else. The focus on Afghanistan is a historical legacy of one group’s operations in the past, which in turn were a legacy of an anti-Soviet insurgency in the even more distant past.

    The current prime foes in Afghanistan, the Taliban, are not an international terrorist group and never have been one.

    The Taliban are instead narrowly focused on political power and the nature of the social order within Afghanistan.

    It is true that a patch of foreign real estate may be required for more ambitious operations such as organizing and training a militia. But the world is full of militias that do not threaten the United States, and they certainly should not be equated with terrorist threats to the U.S. homeland.

    The establishment of a mini-state on Iraqi and Syria territory by the so-called Islamic State or ISIS raises the further issue of how such a seizure of territory might inspire radicalized individuals elsewhere.

    But the inspiration depends more on ideology and grievances than on a territorial presence, as has been demonstrated by ISIS-inspired terrorism in the West that has continued and even increased while the mini-state has been getting crushed.

    The persistence, especially in the minds of Americans, of the erroneous notion about safe havens and terrorism has much to do with 9/11, its searing effect on the American consciousness, and Al-Qaeda’s past residency in Afghanistan.

    But the notion is a misreading of that piece of history, even without getting into overlooked details about phases of the Afghan civil war and the nature of the relationship between Al-Qaeda and the Taliban.

    Most of the preparations for the 9/11 operation did not take place in Afghanistan; most took place in the West, including in apartments in Hamburg, hotels in Spain, and flight schools in the United States.

    The safe haven notion also has become a convenient mantra to cite as a rationale for continuing U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan for other reasons.

    Those reasons may include fear that if a pullout from Afghanistan were followed by a major anti-U.S. terrorist attack, domestic political opponents would make a rhetorical connection between the two whether the connection were valid or not.

    And the more the mantra is recited, the more believable such alleged connections sound to the public.

    Fearing a Backlash

    More general habits of thought, especially American habits, are also in play.

    One is a tendency toward spatial thinking that associates good guys and bad guys with different places on a map. There is a tendency to imagine a Mordor whether one exists or not.

    A further American tendency is to equate solving a security problem with an overseas use of military force.

    Related to that is the American view of terrorism as primarily a foreign threat, notwithstanding the nature of most terrorist attacks within the United States since 9/11.

    An unfortunate effect of the persistent notion about terrorist safe havens is not only costly and unnecessary military expeditions; the notion also worsens the terrorist threat itself.

    The overseas deployment of U.S. military forces provides a major motivation for anti-U.S. terrorism. The collateral casualties and damage that inevitably result from operations by those forces accentuate the grievances that underlie such terrorism.

    A relevant reminder about this comes from an incomplete and misleading passage in Trump’s speech about Afghanistan. He referred to Iraq and asserted that “the vacuum we created by leaving too soon gave safe haven for ISIS to spread, to grow, recruit, and launch attacks.”

    What he did not mention was that ISIS did not exist before the United States invaded Iraq in 2003. The group arose, under a different name, as a direct result of the invasion and of the warfare within Iraq that the invasion ignited.

    And lest we forget, a major part of the campaign to sell the invasion to the American public involved the fear of terrorism, the specter of dictators giving weapons of mass destruction to terrorists, and the idea that if we don’t fight the bad guys over there they will attack us at home.

    Well, no one who is really a threat to the Jews is allowed to become president.

    Even in non-Jewish countries (countries where exists much less jewish power & control) when the former president was replaced because of one of many Jewish revolutions (they call “Russian revolution,” “Arab Spring” or whatever) and the ‘revolutionary’ successor does not do what Zion wants him to do, like Egypt/Mursi, this guy will be replaced within few weeks.

    Mursi,after turning away from Saudi Arabia (Saudis been put in power by the Brits and moving towards Iran he was replaced by Sisi. Now Egypt is a buttkisser of Israel and Saudis again.

    Therefore-Trump being in power for more than 10 weeks means:

    a) either a trojan horse from the beginning

    b) he sold himself

    c) the worldwide spy program PRISM got many things about him in the past years.

    And besides that, you can be sure that every person of significance in the Western world and all non jewish billionaires are “observed” by the tribe in a very aggressive way.

    That’s why US politics never will/can change.

    As the founder of PNAC (a Jew of course) said:We need politicians who can be blackmailed.

    I’d even tend to choose c) as answer, as Trump did some things I never thought he will do: Abandoning TPP and the climate agreements.

    Very unusual to scrap 2 things which were designed for the fascist globalization(disguised, once again). But since then:

    Same ol’ same ol’ money wasting,more war,more military spending.

    No surprise as:

    A Zionist won’t leave your country until he gets what he wants, gets or destroy everything good.

    And since Zionism and Communism occurred, even the culture of every country is systematically targeted, subverted & destroyed, because all countries teach values which are the opposite of Talmud teachings and only people without identity indoctrinated with Talmudic values will not oppose their perversions.

    As Afghanistan has a lot to offer the jackpot in ressources), the US army has to stay there until Zion gets the complete resource-control.

    And getting out of Afghanistan would mean that an independent Afghanistan would turn away from USA and towards Russia in terms of business.

    They’d never allow this.

    @zebo

    You said “A Zionist won’t leave your country until he gets what he wants, gets or destroy everything good.”

    A very little known fact is that the lone non-Jew who “worked” at Urban Moving Systems in Weehawken, New Jersey on September 11 2001 where the famous “5 dancing Israelis” who were caught red-handed photographing the unravelling destruction of the two World Trade Center Towers allegedly worked, said to his FBI Newark field office investigators that he was brought to tears earlier before 9/11 after one of the Mossad Jewboy “workers” arrogantly said to him “give us twenty years and we’ll destroy your country”.

    if anyone’s out there counting thats only four years away, right on schedule if you ask me!

    i’ve read over the entire FBI investigative report, and unfortunately half of it is redacted, probably at the direction of Jewboy Chertoff, former NJ State Attorney General.

    Isn’t it amazing how the Jews just happened to have all been in such strategically placed positions of power?

  35. dave August 31, 2017 @ 7:37 pm

    Oh, btw Jewboy Chertoff, whose very own mother was an early member of the Mossad, is the one most believed to have ordered the release of the “5 dancing Israelis” from “the TOMBS,” the notorius federal prison in Brooklyn, after being held there for several weeks.

    They all failed seven polygraph tests but were allowed to go home to precious Israel, like all Jew criminals are like, such as jew super-thief Marc Rich, that Bill Clinton pardoned.

    Mattis inists the confusion is due to the “account” of troops.

    With his proposed simplified accounting, the public will now know all unclassified missions of US personnel abroad.

    This comes just in time for Trump’s upcoming troop surge to the country.

    Honest. The Pentagon has never lied to the American people, it’s just bad accounting. Like the $6 TRILLION or so that the Pentagon can’t find either because of “accounting errors”.

    Pffftt. Pentagon will just keep rejuggling the numbers between classified and unclassified missions for their “accounting”.

    ~~~*~~~

    New York Times: U.S. Says It Has 11,000 Troops in Afghanistan, More Than Formerly Disclosed

    WASHINGTON — The United States has about 11,000 troops in Afghanistan, the Pentagon said on Wednesday, acknowledging for the first time publicly that the total forces there are higher than formally disclosed in recent years.

    Previously, Defense Department officials had said 8,400 troops were in Afghanistan as part of NATO’s Resolute Support mission.

    An additional 2,000 American troops, which military officials have not publicly acknowledged, are in Afghanistan to help local forces conduct counterterrorism missions.

    The new count includes covert as well as temporary units, defense officials said.

    The disclosure came after Defense Secretary Jim Mattis expressed frustration with how troops in war zones were counted. To get around Obama-era restrictions on the number of troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, commanders sometimes resorted to ad hoc arrangements.

    “The secretary has determined we must simplify our accounting methodology and improve the public’s understanding of America’s military commitment in Afghanistan,” said Dana W. White, the Pentagon’s chief spokeswoman.

    Before Mr. Mattis sends 4,000 more troops to Afghanistan, as he is expected to do under President Trump’s new strategy for the war there, he has said he wants to know how many troops are on the ground.

    “The first thing I have to do is level the bubble and account for everybody who’s on the ground there now,” Mr. Mattis told reporters last week. “The idea being that we’re not going to have different buckets that we’re accounting for them in, to tell you what the total number is.”

    In announcing the new numbers, Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the director of the staff of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, called the move “not an attempt to bring more forces in.”

    Rather, he said, “it is an attempt to actually clarify a very confusing set of reporting rules that has the unintended consequence of forcing commanders to make readiness trade-offs.”

    In one example, helicopters and pilots from an aviation brigade deployed to Afghanistan while its mechanics stayed behind, Gen. John W. Nicholson Jr., the top American commander in Afghanistan, told lawmakers this year.

    To keep the helicopters flying, the military spent tens of millions of dollars to hire civilians contractors who were exempt from the troop cap. The result was increased cost and fewer opportunities for the unit’s mechanics to maintain their proficiency.

    General McKenzie said the Pentagon’s new transparency “actually lets the American people know what their sons and daughters are doing in Afghanistan.”

    But many special operations missions in Afghanistan — and Iraq and Syria — are closely held or classified.

    Assuming Mr. Mattis sends all the additional troops, as expected, the American military will be able to advise select Afghan brigades in the field instead of trying to mentor them from more distant headquarters. They can step up the effort to train special operations forces and, thus, substantially increase the number of Afghan commandos.

    This will allow American war commanders and service members to call in air and artillery strikes on behalf of more Afghan units.

    “I am pleased to see that as we prepare to execute a new strategy in Afghanistan, President Trump and Secretary Mattis have chosen to put the facts on the table,” Representative Mac Thornberry, Republican of Texas and chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, said in a statement. “It is important to be up front about the importance of the mission and what it takes to succeed.”

    Defense Department officials would not disclose the numbers of American troops on the ground in Iraq and Syria but said they planned to soon.

    “We owe the American people as much transparency as possible while still protecting sensitive information,” Ms. White said.

    The official acknowledged number for American troops in Iraq is 5,200, and 500 in Syria. But those numbers are probably an undercount as well, defense officials said.

    Ms. White said the Pentagon was “reviewing Iraq and Syria, and the same guiding principles will govern how we roll out those numbers as well.”

    “Not many believe the improbable (Western) narrative that ISIS suddenly emerged armed, and fully financed, as a result of former Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s alleged “sectarianism”: No, as rule-of-thumb, behind each such well-breached movement – stands a state.”

    South Front: AFGHANISTAN WAR REPORT – SEPTEMBER 2, 2017: NEW US STRATEGY LEADS TO FURTHER ESCALATION OF CONFLICT

    On August 30, the Taliban claimed that it downed a US helicopter in the Afghan province of Logar and that 20 US soldiers were killed in the attack.

    A spokesman for the US military in Afghanistan, Bob Purtiman, denied the Taliban’s claims and said that the helicopter had some technical problem and it made a precautionary landing. According to Purtiman, the aircraft has been successfully recovered.

    On August 22, President Donald Trump announced a plan to deploy 4,000 more troops to Afghanistan and to win somehow, in the US’ longest war. Currently, there are about 9,800 US troops and 25,197 contractors on the ground in the war-torn country.

    The Taliban responded to Trump’s announcement with increased attack against NATO and pro-US government forces and promised to turn Afghanistan “into a graveyard for the American Empire”.

    On August 25, Taliban militants entered Kas Uruzgan district in central Afghanistan after they had overrun the Afghani Army defense. During the month, the Taliban captured over 10 district centers.

    Government forces, even with the assistance of the US military, were not able to reverse the militants’ gains.

    Meanwhile, aircraft with removed identification marks started transferring groups of ISIS fighters as well as some separate ISIS emissaries from southern to northern Afghanistan.

    According to reports, these aircrafts operate under cover of the US-led coalition.

    Reports also appear that the coalition covers weapon supplies to ISIS in and via Afghanistan. The goal, is to boost a point of instability at the southern flank of Russia.

    The US invaded Afghanistan in 2001. Since then, the White House has been struggling in its attempt to put in power a US-allied government. However, the security situation remains very complicated for the US and its allies.

    The Taliban keeps a notable power in Afghanistan and even made some new gains in recent years.

    Today the Taliban has a vertical of local administrative and judicial bodies that cover the territory of Afghanistan no less effectively than the administrative structures of the official Kabul.

    To this day, the US does not have any useful strategies which would restore peace and national accord in the country. Many experts claim that the White House does not know how to cope with Afghanistan or what to do inside the country.

    Furthermore, the situation in Afgnanistan is just a part of the US military and political activity in the conflict zones around the world.

    The growing tensions with Northern Korea and Iran, the ongoing conflicts in Syria and Iraq and instability in South America draw much more US attention than the situation in Afghanistan.

    Sputnik: Russia Should Talk With US About Its Plan for Afghanistan - Russian Envoy to UN

    Russian Ambassador to the UN said that United States and Russia should hold talks on Afghanistan in order to get a clear picture of the US goals in that country.

    UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) – The United States and Russia should hold talks on Afghanistan in order to get a clear picture of the US goals in that country, Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vassily Nebenzia told reporters.

    “Needless to say, in order to get a feel of how and what the United States is trying to accomplish in Afghanistan we should talk to them about it. Serious and meaningful consultations should be conducted in this regard,” Nebenzia said on Friday.

    The Russian ambassador pointed out nobody ever triumphed in Afghanistan militarily.

    Nebenzia also said history has proved on numerous occasions there is no military solution in Afghanistan, which makes the existence of a political process absolutely crucial to bringing about a solution.

    Moreover, Nebenzia expressed Moscow’s concern over the increased presence in Afghanistan of the fighters belonging to the Daesh terror group (banned in Russia) and the persisting problem of drug production and trafficking.

    On August 21, US President Donald Trump announced a new strategy for Afghanistan that would give more freedom to US military commanders to use force and pledged to keep and increase US troop levels until extremist threats were eliminated.

    In a press briefing on Wednesday, US Defense Department Joint Staff Director Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie said approximately 11,000 US troops are currently stationed in Afghanistan.

    RT: Journalist fired for exposing how CIA ran weapons to terrorists

    Bulgarian investigative journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva says she was fired after reporting about how the Central Intelligence Agency ran weapons to Al-Nusra terrorists through Azerbaijan.

    [She was in Aleppo and able to investigate weapons caches left behind, finding Bulgarian weapons, when the jihadists were pushed out by the SAA].

    Gaytandzhieva was let go for refusing to reveal her sources, she tells RT’s Anya Parampil.
    www.youtube.com/watch?v=zD5VW_z6pG0

    ~~~*~~~
    The Armenian Weekly is owned and operated by Armenian-American Harut Sassounian, based in Glendale, CA

    The Armenian Weekly (August): Azerbaijan Forces Bulgaria to Fire Reporter Who Exposed Arms Shipments to Terrorists

    Last month, I wrote about Bulgarian journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva’s revelations that Azerbaijan’s state-run Silk Way Airlines had shipped 350 planeloads of heavy weapons and ammunition to terrorist groups in Syria and many other countries in the last three years, under diplomatic cover.

    On Aug. 24, Dilyana tweeted: “I just got fired for telling the truth about weapons supplies for terrorists in Syria on diplomatic flights.”

    Dilyana posted on her Facebook page that she was fired due to pressure on the government of Bulgaria by Azerbaijan, as she was about to leave for Syria to continue her investigation.

    In an interview with Armenpress, Dilyana said that before her firing, she was called by the Bulgarian Special Security Agency and asked about her sources of information for her revelations.

    She replied that her source was the website of the Embassy of Azerbaijan, which was hacked, but would not provide any further details. Two hours later, she got a phone call from her newspaper, Trud Daily, telling her that she had been dismissed.

    After she published her article, Dilyana revealed that the Azeri Embassy urged the Bulgarian government to investigate her; as a result, she was fired from her job.

    The daring Bulgarian journalist, however, refuses to remain silent. She told Armenpress that no one can stop her from continuing her investigation:

    “They couldn’t stop me two months ago; they couldn’t stop me yesterday to speak out. I just posted on social media.

    “They can’t force an independent journalist to keep silent. I’m not obliged to anybody. I’m obliged to tell the truth to the people, this is my job.”

    Dilyana stressed that Bulgaria was well informed about these illegal weapons’ shipments, since she had all the documents proving that the Bulgarian government, several European countries, the United States, and many others had given their approval for this secret and illegal operation.

    The Bulgarian journalist urged the United Nations to launch an investigation against Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, the United States, Saudi Arabia, and other countries.

    In addition, Dilyana appealed for support from independent journalists and the public at large.

    She emphasized: “I am not the first and last journalist to be fired for doing their job. I don’t have high expectations from the mainstream media, because they have their political agenda, their objectives, and their policy. What I expect is to be able to spread this information worldwide not by the mainstream media.”

    Dilyana also revealed that Azerbaijan paid Bulgarian journalists to publish articles favorable to Baku.

    “I can give you a fact obtained from the leaked documents after the cyber-attack on the Azerbaijani Embassy. The Azerbaijani Embassy pays money to journalists for articles in favor of Azerbaijan or articles ordered to be published by Azerbaijan.”

    Dilyana insisted that she is determined to continue her work: “I’m going to set up my own on-line media, because no one in Bulgaria will now agree to publish my investigations.

    “I will not be offered a job in the Bulgarian media. So I think about establishing my own [media outlet]; this is the solution.”

    Confirming Dilyana’s revelations is an article by Thierry Meyssan, in the sott.net website, reporting that Operation Sycamore involves at least 17 states and involves several tens of thousands of tons of weapons:

    “Over the last seven years, several billion dollars’ worth of armament has been illegally introduced into Syria…. Numerous documents attest to the fact that the traffic was organized by General David Petraeus, first of all in public, via the CIA, of which he was the director, then privately, via the financial company KKR with the aid of certain senior civil servants….

    “New elements now show the secret of Azerbaijan in the evolution of the war [in Syria]…. While Bulgaria was one of the main arms exporters to Syria, it received help from Azerbaijan.”

    Meyssan, in his article, quotes Sibel Edmonds—an ex-FBI translator and founder of National Security Whistleblowers Coalition—revealing that “Azerbaijan, under President Heydar Aliyev, from 1997 to 2001, hosted in Baku the number 2 of Al-Qaida, Ayman al-Zawahiri.

    “This was done at the request of the CIA. Although officially wanted by the FBI, the man who [was] then number 2 of the international jihadist network travelled regularly in NATO planes to Afghanistan, Albania, Egypt and Turkey. He also received frequent visits from Prince Bandar ben Sultan of Saudi Arabia.”

    The Armenian-American community should invite the distinguished Bulgarian journalist Dilyana to the United States in order to publicize through lectures and press conferences her sensational revelations about Azerbaijan’s illegal weapons shipments to terrorists.

    The Armenian Weekly: The U.S. and Europe Must Investigate Azerbaijani Shipments of Weapons to Terrorists

    A stunning investigation by Bulgarian reporter Dilyana Gaytandzhieva revealed that Azerbaijan’s state-run Silk Way Airlines has shipped under diplomatic cover 350 planeloads of heavy weapons and ammunition to terrorist groups around the world in the last three years.

    Azerbaijan asked the Foreign Ministries of various countries to issue a diplomatic exemption for these flights, allowing civilian planes to carry weapons, which would normally be prohibited by the International Air Transport Association.

    Don’t be put off by Russian Ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov’s fierce eyebrows.

    Known as a Russian “hardliner” and “tough negotiator” (meaning he’s a national-patriot 100% for Russia’s interests and MRGA — Make Russia Great Again — and doesn’t kowtow to the White House) Antonov is a soft-spoken, kindly, frank, and thoughtful gentleman in his interviews, even though by reputation he’s a “bull terrier”. As if that’s a bad thing.

    He’s supremely concerned with serious nuclear arms control, as if that’s a bad thing, too.

    Poached from Wikipedia: Antonov was formerly Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Deputy Minister of Defence.

    Since 2015, he has been under sanctions of the European Union and Canada, in response to Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine.

    Antonov began his diplomatic career after earning his undergraduate degree in 1978. He spent the next 30 years at the Soviet Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its successor, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where his area of speciality was control of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.

    In 2004, he was appointed Director of the Department for Security and Disarmament.

    In 1978, Antonov graduated from the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO), and in 1983 received a master’s degree.

    In 2012, he earned his doctorate of political science from the Institute of World Economy and International Relations in Moscow. His doctoral dissertation was entitled Controlling Nuclear Weapons as a Factor in Ensuring National and International Security. He is fluent in English and Burmese.

    Antonov has been involved with all the phases of nuclear disarmament talks and agreements between the US and Russia.

    The decision to make Antonov the Russian Ambassador to the US was put in motion months ago. It was no snap decision to replace Amb. Sergey Kislyak this year because of anti-Russian/anti-Trump garbage rhetoric by McCain and his ilk scandalizing the new Attorney General, Jeff Sessions.

    My suggestion is that from now on, everyone in RJN family should be getting their news directly from the Russian Embassy to the US rather than the Jewmerican media.

    As for the black smoke coming from the chimney of the Russian consulate in San Francisco yesterday? The JewSA has informed Russia of its intent to illegally search the Russian diplomatic facilities, despite the fact that 5 of the 6 diplomatic properties are outright owned by the Russian Federation, and the 6th one, I believe the Trade Representation office, is leased, all of which enjoy diplomatic immunity.

    I don’t know what that was that went up in black smoke in the consulate fireplace, irking all of the lefty greenies in San Francisco with complaints about it being done in a North California heat wave (Since average temps hardly ever climb much about the low 80s, virtually no one in SF has air conditioning).

    Organic materials like paper and leaves burn white, while things from petroleum and rubber products like gas, oil, kerosene, tires and plastic generally burn black.

    Who knows? Maybe the Russians were retaliating by burning all of the electronic bugs and spy cameras ever installed as far back as during the Soviet era by the US or Israel for espionage inside the consulate or implanted in diplomatic gifts in retaliation.

    Sputnik: Russia’s New Ambassador to US Says Open to Communication With US Media

    Russia’s newly appointed Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov has said upon arriving in Washington, DC that he is ready to communicate with American media outlets amid the diplomatic tensions between the two countries.

    VLADIVOSTOK (Sputnik) — Antonov said Saturday that he would be very open during interviews with US journalists, saying he had recieved many requests from the media.

    “As requests are coming, a question arises whether or not to meet with all of them. As for me, I have already decided to be very open,” Antonov said, as aired by the Rossiya 1 broadcaster.

    The ambassador noted that he was ready for tough questions and stressed that his major goal was to prevent further rounds of sanctions.

    Antonov, who previously served as a deputy defense and foreign minister, was appointed to serve as Russia’s ambassador to the United States on August 21.

    ​The diplomat arrived in Washington DC on Thursday, hours after the State Department announced the US demanded that Moscow close down its Consulate General in San Francisco and two other diplomatic entities in New York City and Washington, DC by September 2.

    Washington’s move came as a retaliation for Moscow’s decision to cut US diplomatic staff in Russia, according to the State Department.

    The closure of the diplomatic compounds was the latest instance in a series of tit-for-tat moves between the United States and Russia that began over allegations that Russia interfered in the 2016 election, accusations that the Kremlin has repeatedly denied.

    The Duran: US special services to search Russian Consulate building in San Francisco

    Russia has condemned the move in extremely strong terms.

    Russia’s Foreign Ministry has reported that US security services including the FBI intend to search and possibly strip the facilities at the Russian Consulate in San Francisco as well as the residences of Russian diplomats living in the US.

    The statement accuses the United States of a gross violation of the Vienna Convention which defines the property of foreign embassies and missions abroad as the sovereign territory of the nation whose embassy is on the property.

    The current US actions demonstrate an atmosphere of hostility against Russia that is if anything elevated from that which transpired under Barack Obama.

    Below is the statement from the Russian Foreign Ministry in full:

    Russian MFA (English): Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova on the new hostile acts by the US against Russian diplomatic missions in the US

    On August 31, the US authorities announced unprecedented restrictive measures against Russian diplomatic and consular missions in the US, requiring us to close, in a matter of two days, the consulate general in San Francisco, one of the largest Russian consulates in the US that provides visa, notary and other consular services to Russian and US nationals from across a number of densely populated states.

    [The SF consulate’s district includes at least the northwest quarter of the continental US as well as Alaska, which also have sizable communities of Russians and Russian Americans, and which was the consulate service point for large US population centers and businesses with long-standing ties to Russia]

    Russia is also required to close without delay its Trade Representation in Washington, D.C. and its annex in New York. The US also tightened requirements regarding the mobility of Russian diplomats and official delegations.

    This move is yet another blatant violation of international law, including the commitments undertaken by the US under the Vienna Conventions on Diplomatic and Consular Relations.

    It goes far beyond Washington’s previous initiatives, which included the expropriation by the Barack Obama administration in December 2016 of countryside retreats of the Russian Embassy and Permanent Mission to the UN, despite their immunity status.

    Following the illegal seizure of high-value Russian state property, we are being pushed to sell them.

    On top of that, the latest demands announced by the US pose a direct threat to the security and safety of Russian citizens.

    The US secret services intend to conduct a search of the Consulate General in San Francisco on September 2, including the apartments of its staff who live in the building and have immunity.

    In this connection, they were ordered to leave the premises for a period of 10 to 12 hours with their families, including small children and even infants. [In an anomolous 3-digit heat wave in a city where hardly anyone owns or uses air conditioning.]

    This is an intrusion into a consular office and the residence of diplomatic workers, who are forced outside so as not to stand in the way of the FBI agents. [Under certain circumstances and depending on the legal diplomatic classifications, the US Dept of State’s own guidance states for searching the residences of consular diplomats and staff that entry into residences are permitted “subject to ordinary procedures”.

    I would assume this to mean that, because aside from legal diplomatic immunity, anyone lawfully resident in the US has all of the same constitutional rights to due process of law and protections from warrantless search and seizure as US citizens do.]

    With these defiant moves, the US continues to worsen an already complicated bilateral climate and undermines opportunities for working together, including on solutions to urgent international issues.

    It is especially dismaying that these measures will hurt tens of thousands of ordinary people from both countries who are far from politics.

    By stopping issuing visas to Russian nationals at its consulates general in St Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok, and now depriving US citizens of the possibility to obtain Russian visas in San Francisco, the US clearly shows that it has no interest in promoting people-to-people ties.

    In fact, this builds on the Barack Obama administration’s policy whereby back in 2013 the FBI tried to intimidate Americans wishing to take part in trips to Russia sponsored by Russia’s Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States, Compatriots Living Abroad, and International Humanitarian Cooperation, and in 2016 the US Department of State stripped of their credentials five Russian honorary consuls in various states, who were proactive in promoting social exchanges.

    Russia strongly protests against Washington’s actions that defy international law, and reserves the possibility to take retaliatory action, as is customary in diplomatic affairs.

    This was not Russia’s choice. It was imposed on us.

    Just out in CODOH’s quarterly Inconvenient History:

    Why the Holocaust Story Was Invented

    Abstract

    The genocide of European Jewry by National Socialist Germany is considered by many to be the most thoroughly documented event in human history.

    Tens of thousands of books, magazine, and newspaper articles have been written and numerous criminal trials have been conducted to document the mass extermination of European Jewry.

    The crimes of Germany against Jews are considered to be so uniquely evil that the term “the Holocaust” has been invented to describe the alleged genocide of European Jewry.

    I have been asked the questions: “Why was the Holocaust story invented? Who benefits from this falsification of history?” This article will answer these questions.

    Supposedly from the Talmud Midrash and beginning at about 32:30 time in the Judaism 101 YouTube Instructional Youtube video given below, “God realizes that God has made a mistake regarding the floods of Noah…. and … God therefore says to Noah that God will never do it again ( destroy mankind)”.

    To me the implication of this Judaism 101 YouTube Instructional YouTube video given below, is that the rabbinic Jewish leadership therefore believe that they may be as wicked and evil as they desire, and God will do no harm to them, as long as the Jewish leadership obey’s the Talmud.

    Very interesting statements about God’s will and man’s will, are given beginning at about the time of 38:00 in the YouTube video given below.

    @KathJuliane

    Here’s what I’m observing via my Street Evangelism travels which segways into Jewmerica’s actions against diplomatic protocol regarding its raid on the Russian Embassy in San Francisco.

    I met the Consular Director of the Embassy two years ago. The man was quite dignified, sober, and pious. (We met at Church.)

    In contrast, the leaders of Jewmerica are slobs, mentally deranged, and liars, like their enablers: JEWS.

    I am seeing on the Street and in the air DEMONIC ACTIVITY like never before.

    There is something very strange in the air and people are acting strange. ‘Normal’ people are fully embracing the LGBT and Homo crap which gives entrance to demons. I see it everywhere now, sense it, feel it, and oppose it.

    We must all move into a HIGHER LEVEL of consciousness, that is, “dwelling in the secret place of the Most High, dwelling under Christ’s Holy shadow,” as the psalmist exhorts.

    Tomorrow, dear KathJuliane, I turn 67 years old. I am now ‘pushing 70′ and feel like I’m about to engage in a major Spiritual struggle and contest.

    The demons are out. Americans are losing their minds and are open prey to demonic possession. I just came back from Summit County CO for Street Evangelism and 1 out of every 10 drivers in cars yelled out, “Hail Satan!” But the Holy Cross crushes them.

    This has all happened due to anti-Christ propaganda, policy, and social engineering perpetrated by Jews who are fully propagating the ’spirit of anti-Christ’ which is denial of the Incarnation of the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ.

    I am the ONLY one who calls out the JEWS as the ruiners of the Western World in every aspect of life. No one else does it.

    Ron Paul just put out an Article saying that the “Saudis did 9/11.” Shame on him.

    Everyone knows, even 5th graders, that the JEWS vis-a-vis the Mossad did 9/11. In spite of Ron Paul’s political correctness, YouTube still demonitized his innocuous Videos.

    We’ve heard it a million times that we have to stop our interventions abroad, and build our economy at home.

    But if NO ONE cares, and if NO ONE really wants to work (as the European immigrants once did) then Ron Paul is blowing smoke.

    I don’t blow smoke. I name the JEW names. I name the JEW-enabled events. I name the Jew-infested places. No one else does it like yours truly.

    For this reason I cannot get the funding I need to KEEP NAMING THE JEW NAMES.

    At this juncture in my life in turning 67 years old tomorrow, I thought that my financial woes would be over. They are not. They are worse than ever. BUT I am determined, with Christ’s help, to continue.

    PayPiss banned me. This was a big blow to my funding. I still have Click and Pledge. Any help will be used to CONTINUE exposing wicked Jewry.

    U Cal of Berkeley Street Evangelism Report
    August 17-21

    When I arrived late afternoon on campus I noticed that the majority of the student body appeared to be Chinese.

    Very serious young people, hetero, and there to get a degree and on to a lucrative job, marriage, family, and long-term career.

    I said to myself, “These Chinese students are not here to riot and break windows.”

    Then in the midst of all the Chinese students were American white students. They looked quite genteel, friendly, and a bit shy.

    I said to myself, “These white kids wouldn’t hurt a fly let alone smash windows and riots.”

    After a long period on the Street holding HIGH the Holy Cross on a median strip with Starbucks on my right at Oxford and Center streets, (huge positive reception, much Vid recognition too), a Berkeley official pulled up next to me to have a friendly chat until the light changed.

    I said to him, “These students don’t look like rioters.”

    “Don’t you know they were bussed in from Oakland and George Soros funded them?”

    He said it so matter-of-factly, I was stunned.

    All in all, a HUGE Success! +BN

  51. The Englishman September 5, 2017 @ 4:25 am

    Dear +BN

    Powerful rhetoric in your address to Dear KJ.

    Many many will identify wholeheartedly with what you state.

    To me, Ron Paul is vastly over rated, a Jew-fact dodger, dangerous in as much that both he & Daniel McAdams by avoiding the denunciation of Christ hating tribe members are displaying a form of tacit acceptance.

    YOU MUST CONTINUE… With Christ’s Blessing!
