- Jeremy Scahill on Obama’s Orwellian War in Iraq: We Created the Very Threat We Claim to be Fighting!
As Vice President Joe Biden warns it will take a “hell of a long fight” for the United States to stop militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, we speak to Jeremy Scahill, author of the book, “Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield.” We talk about how the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003 that helped create the threat now posed by the Islamic State. We also discuss the role of Baathist forces in ISIS, Obama’s targeting of journalists, and the trial of four former Blackwater operatives involved in the 2007 massacre at Baghdad’s Nisoor Square.

AMY GOODMAN: Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday it will take a, quote, “hell of a long fight” for the United States and its allies to stop the advance of militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. But during the same speech, Biden admitted the Islamic State poses no existential threat to the nation’s security. His comment comes as Australia becomes the latest country to join the U.S.-led fight. Prime Minister Tony Abbott said Australian planes will take part in the air campaign and that special forces would be deployed.
PRIME MINISTER TONY ABBOTT: The Americans certainly have quite a substantial special forces component on the ground already. My understanding is that there are U.K. and Canadian special forces already inside Iraq. So, we’ll be operating on a much smaller scale, but in an entirely comparable way to the United States special forces.
AMY GOODMAN: Meanwhile, Turkey’s Parliament has authorized the government to order military action against the Islamic State. The mandate also allows foreign troops to launch operations from Turkey. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, ISIS militants have seized more than 350 North Syrian villages in the past 16 days, displacing at least 300,000 people.
To talk more about the crisis in the Middle East, we’re joined by Jeremy Scahill, who first reported from inside Iraq before the 2003 U.S. invasion. He’s co-founder of the TheIntercept.org and author of the book Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield. The paperback version of the book has just been published.
Welcome back to Democracy Now!, Jeremy.
JEREMY SCAHILL: Thanks, Amy.

Australia Elevates Terrorism Threat Level Due to #ISIS! Psychological Warfare Against Public to Support the Attack of Syria!
- Published on Sep 11, 2014
CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — The Australian government on Friday elevated it terrorism threat level to the second-highest warning in response to the domestic threat posed by Islamic State movement supporters.
Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced the increase from “medium” to “high” on a four-tier scale on the advice of the Australian Security Intelligence Organization.
The domestic spy agency’s Director-General David Irvine warned this week that the terrorist threat level had been rising in Australia over the past year, due in part to Australians joining Islamic State to fight in Syria and Iraq.
- All of these ‘terrorism alert’ are just psychological warfare, psyops against the sheeple. The Illuminist western world power want the sheeple to support the bombing against Syria. Will the Illuminati trigger false flag terrorism in Australia? I have no idea. What is clear is that: when they see the public not supporting their genocidal war agenda, they are more likely to stage false flag attacks! All part of the drive towards Albert Pike’s Satanic WW3.
CDC, Australian DoD & Nigerian Federal Ministry of Health State That Ebola is an Aerosol Virus & Human-to-Human Transmittable via Inhalation!
- CDC, Australian DoD & Nigerian Federal Ministry of Health State That Ebola is an Aerosol Virus & Human-to-Human Transmittable via Inhalation!
by TruthNow88, http://investmentwatchblog.com/
It seems to be a common assumption that Ebola isn’t Aerosol and can’t be transmitted via inhalation (a lot of news stories I read seem to make this assumption when talking about a story surrounding an infected person). While this is true for SOME strains of Ebola (4 out of 5), there is a strain that is Aerosol and transmittable via inhalation; the Zaire strain, which this current virus is a genetic variant of. Because of this I find that a lot of the precautions being taken, especially at airports, and in planes involving visibly sick people, really aren’t going to stand a chance for containing this virus (they seem to just let other passengers go assuming they are not also infected due to not actually touching the suspected person…). Truth is an airplane is extremely close to a “hospital environment”, which is the perfect condition for Ebola-Zaire to transmit via aerosol. For those that say that Ebola isn’t aerosol or transmittable via inhalation, please check out the follow .gov sources that blatantly say otherwise.
Australia Group Common Control List Handbook – Volume II – V13.Ebola virus
Exposure / Infection Routes:
– Inhalation (lungs): Aerosols
– Yes (direct and respiratory)
Human-to human transfer usually occurs through direct contact with bodily fluids from an infected individual though aerosol transmission can occur between individuals in close proximity to one another.

How is Ebola Virus Disease spread?
6. Inhalation of contaminated air in hospital environment;
CDC defines transmission for Ebola as follows.
1 Casual contact is defined as a) being within approximately 3 feet (1 meter) or within the room or care area for a prolonged period of time (e.g., healthcare personnel, household members) while not wearing recommended personal protective equipment (i.e., droplet and contact precautions–see Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations); or b) having direct brief contact (e.g., shaking hands) with an EVD case while not wearing recommended personal protective equipment (i.e., droplet and contact precautions–see Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations). At this time, brief interactions, such as walking by a person or moving through a hospital, do not constitute casual contact.
* Outbreak affected countries include Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Lagos, Nigeria, as of 4-August-2014
Note: This was just recently updated by the CDC to include this footnote.
It’s interesting to note that the transmission criteria given for Ebola by the CDC (recently updated) now matches the same criteria for transmission as Influenza A (seasonal flu).
The CDC defines the transmission of Influenza as follows.
Influenza viruses are spread from person to person primarily through large-particle respiratory droplet transmission (e.g., when an infected person coughs or sneezes near a susceptible person). Transmission via large-particle droplets requires close contact between source and recipient persons, because droplets do not remain suspended in the air and generally travel only a short distance (less than or equal to 1 meter) through the air. Contact with respiratory-droplet contaminated surfaces is another possible source of transmission.
I hope everyone is ready to roll up your sleeves for “The Decade of Vaccines”!
The Global Vaccine Action Plan – The Opportunity
The Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP), endorsed by the 194 member states of the World Health Assembly (WHA) in 2012, provides a framework for achieving the vision of the Decade of Vaccines—delivering full access to immunization by 2020 and extending the full benefits of immunization to all people, regardless of where they are born, who they are, or where they live.
Almost sounds nice doesn’t it? Too bad the people running it are pure evil.
