War Propaganda! Fabrication in BBC Panorama “Saving Syria’s Children”: Substitution of “Napalm Bomb” Footage

  • Fabrication in BBC Panorama “Saving Syria’s Children”: Substitution of “Napalm Bomb” Footage
    by Robert, via
    BBC Upholds Complaint
    The below admission from the BBC that its substitution of Syria footage between two 2014 broadcasts breaches its own Editorial Guidelines on accuracy is a modest victory in the battle to attract scrutiny to the wider charges that one of the reports in question (at least) was largely, if not entirely, fabricated.

    For almost two years I have pursued the question of whether scenes of the aftermath of an alleged incendiary attack on an Aleppo school – filmed by BBC staff and first broadcast as UK legislators voted on military intervention in Syria – were staged for the purposes of propaganda.

    Many compelling evidence points have arisen: the widely contradictory accounts of precisely when the alleged attack occurred – including disagreement between the BBC reporter and cameraman concerned; the testimony of a former Free Syrian Army commander stationed in the vicinity denying that an attack occurred; a fortuitously-grabbed screencap of one of the alleged teenage victims grinning broadly into the camera; “victims” sharing the same “costume”, and, most astonishing of all, the self-identification of a “victim” seen in footage from the day (in reality a 52 year old Netherlands resident) who contacted me on Facebook, anxious that she may be recognised.

    The backgrounds of the two doctors featured in the BBC’s report are of considerable interest: Dr Saleyha Ahsan, a former British army captain, has a personal connection with a military officer who runs large-scale medical simulation exercises, employing professional casualty make-up artists; Dr Ahsan’s colleague, Dr Rola Hallam, is the daughter of Dr Mousa al-Kurdi, who is “involved politically with the Syrian National Council”. The co-founder of Hand in Hand for Syria, the “humanitarian” charity for which the doctors are filmed volunteering, has expressed bloodthirsty promises to bring Assad to justice “NO MATTER WHAT LIVES IT TAKES, NO MATTER HOW MUCH CATASTROPHE IT MAKES”.  A Hand in Hand for Syria nurse seen working alongside Drs Ahsan and Hallam is pictured elsewhere tending to the wounds of a child opposition fighter.

    Very many other discrepancies are noted on my blog. It is hard to escape the conclusion, voiced by former UK ambassador Craig Murray, that the BBC’s ‘Saving Syria’s Children’ “documentary” represents the fruit of a collaboration between BBC personnel and UK state security services and marks a unique and historic breach of trust between the corporation, its UK licence fee-payer funders and its millions of viewers and listeners worldwide.

Britain’s Secret Ties to Governments, Firms Behind ISIS Oil Sales


  • Britain’s Secret Ties to Governments, Firms Behind ISIS Oil Sales
    by Nafeez Ahmed,  
    This exclusive is published by INSURGE INTELLIGENCE, a new crowd-funded investigative journalism project. The story was originally commissioned by London’s Middle East Eye, which has published an abridged version available here 

    In the scramble to access Kurdistan’s oil and gas wealth, the US and UK are turning a blind eye to complicity in ‘Islamic State’ oil smuggling

    Key allies in the US and UK led war on Islamic State (ISIS) are covertly financing the terrorist movement according to senior political sources in the region. US and British oil companies are heavily invested in the murky geopolitical triangle sustaining ISIS’ black market oil sales.

    The Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) in Iraq and Turkish military intelligence have both supported secret ISIS oil smuggling operations and even supplied arms to the terror group, according to Kurdish, Iraqi and Turkish officials.

    One British oil company in particular, Genel Energy, is contracted by the KRG to supply oil for a major Kurdish firm accused of facilitating ISIS oil sales to Turkey. The Kurdish firm has close ties to the Iraqi Kurdish government.

    Genel operates in the KRG with the backing of the British government, and is also linked to a British parliamentary group with longstanding connections to both the British and KRG oil industries.

    The relationship between British and Kurdish energy companies, and senior British politicians, raises questions about conflicts of interest — especially in the context of a ‘war on terror’ that is supposed to be targeting, not financing, the ‘Islamic State.’

    “Turkey has sponsored Islamist groups in Syria, including ISIS, since the beginning, and continues to do so. The scale of ISIS smuggling operations across the Turkish-Syrian border is huge, and much of it is facilitated with the blessings of Erdogan and Davitoglu, who see the Islamists as the means to expand the Turkish foothold in the region.”

The March to War: Fighting ISIL(ISIS) is a Smokescreen for US Mobilization Against Syria, Iran


  • The March to War: Fighting ISIL is a Smokescreen for US Mobilization against Syria, Iran
    by Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, Strategic Culture Foundation 26 September 2014, via  
    This incisive article by Mahdi Nazemroaya was first published by GR in August 2014 at the outset of the US led bombing campaign

    The ISIL or IS threat is a smokescreen. The strength of the ISIL has deliberately been inflated to get public support for the Pentagon and to justify the illegal bombing of Syria. It has also been used to justify the mobilization of what is looking more and more like a large-scale US-led military buildup in the Middle East. The firepower and military assets being committed go beyond what is needed for merely fighting the ISIL death squads.

    While the US has assured its citizens and the world that troops will not be sent on the ground, this is very unlikely. In the first instance, it is unlikely because boots on the ground are needed to monitor and select targets. Moreover, Washington sees the campaign against the ISIL fighters as something that will take years. This is doublespeak. What is being described is a permanent military deployment or, in the case of Iraq, redeployment. This force could eventually morph into a broader assault force threatening Syria, Iran, and Lebanon.

    US-Syrian and US-Iranian Security Dialogue?
    Before the US-led bombings in Syria started there were unverified reports being circulated that Washington had started a dialogue with Damascus through Russian and Iraqi channels to discuss military coordination and the Pentagon bombing campaign in Syria. There was something very off though. Agents of confusion were at work in an attempt to legitimize the bombardment of the Syrian Arab Republic.

    The claims of US-Syrian cooperation via Russian and Iraqi channels are part of a sinister series of misinformation and disinformation. Before the claims about US cooperation with Syria, similar claims were being made about US-Iranian cooperation in Iraq.

    Earlier, Washington and the US media tried to give the impression that an agreement on military cooperation was made between itself and Tehran to fight ISIL and to cooperate inside Iraq. This was widely refuted in the harshest of words by numerous members of the Iranian political establishment and high-ranking Iranian military commanders as disinformation.

    After the Iranians clearly indicated that Washington’s claims were fiction, the US claimed that it would not be appropriate for Iran to join its anti-ISIL coalition. Iran rebutted. Washington was dishonestly misrepresenting the facts, because US officials had asked Tehran to join the anti-ISIL coalition several times.

Ron Paul: US Military-Industrial Complex Needs Russia As An Enemy

Click on image for E-book.

  • Ron Paul: US Military-Industrial Complex Needs Russia As An Enemy
    The US military-industrial complex always wants to have an enemy and now it seeks to use Russia as an adversary, says former American presidential candidate Ron Paul.

    “The people have to have the propaganda convert them into someone they hate, so they can hate,” Paul said on Friday, during the 2015 YAL National Convention in Washington, DC. The former Texas congressman said the US is conducting a propaganda campaign aimed at spreading disinformation about issues like the crisis in Ukraine to show Russia as an enemy.

    “All of a sudden the Cold War is over, and there’s a full explanation of what’s going on in Ukraine, and it’s not all the Russians’ fault, I tell you,” Paul said. “But we have to have an enemy to keep on churning this.” The US military-industrial complex does not “deliberately say, well this started a war, but this started some aggravation which ended up in a war much bigger.”

    Head of the US Special Operations Command General Joseph Votel has described Russia as an “existential threat” to the United States. Votel told Fox News recently that Russia is trying to “create these frozen conflicts and create situations that are very, very difficult to resolve along their border.”

    US Army General Mark Milley has also warned about Russia’s nuclear capability, saying it is the only country on earth that could destroy the United States. 

    The ties between Russia and the United States deteriorated after US-backed forces ousted Ukraine’s elected President Viktor Yanukovych in February 2014. The US and its allies accuse Moscow of sending troops into eastern Ukraine in support of the pro-Russian forces. Moscow has long denied involvement in Ukraine’s crisis.

    On Friday, Paul also criticized the US government for waging what he described as “nonsense wars”. “Why do we allow our government to push us around, and take away our liberties, and over tax us, and send us off to nonsense wars?”

    In April, Paul wrote in an article that “the new ‘threats’ that are being hyped bring big profits to military contractors and the network of think tanks they pay to produce pro-war propaganda.” The Pentagon has signed deals worth over $850 million with defense contracting companies. Raytheon, for instance, received $700 million of the total amount just to install new equipment in a Cold War-era nuclear bunker.

Paul Craig Roberts: We Are In Scary Times As The Russians Won’t Comply And The Risk Of World War Is Rising


  • Paul Craig Roberts – We Are In Scary Times As The Russians Won’t Comply And The Risk Of World War Is Rising
    With people around the world worried about the escalating crisis in Greece and conflicts in the Middle East and Ukraine, today former U.S. Treasury official, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, warned King World News that we are in scary times as the Russians won’t comply and the risk of world war is rising.

    Former US Treasury official Paul Craig Roberts (below) says the risk of world war is now rising.  

    Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: “We are in scary times.  The neoconservative ideology which rules American foreign policy and military policy says that the first objective is to prevent the rise of Russia.  So if that’s your first objective, then you have to prevent Russia’s rise.  In other words, you are committed to war….

Date Of Destruction: 23 September 2015? Day of Atonement, “500 Days to Climate Chaos” …

  • Published on Aug 1, 2015
    Roughly three months, or 500 days from when The French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and John Kerry made a vague announcement, it will be September 23, 2015. The occult beliefs of the Illuminati stress the importance of the dates following the Autumn Equinox. The occultists believe that a veil separating the Earthly realm from the demonic realm reaches its most allowable for the transfer of demons until midnight on Halloween. The events leading up to, on and nearly following the date of September 23, 2015 are numerous and many of them are as yet unconfirmed claims. Note to mainstream media, uncomfirmed claims here, we are simply taking a look at what is being said.

    An asteroid is said to be approaching Earth that will hit the coast of Venezuala and Brazil and create an extinction level event. The update and ramping up of the CERN Large Hadron Collider and the possible Universe destroying opening of other dimensions within our own dimension or access to a gate that has been closed. The culmination of Jade Helm, a large scale psyop operation targeting pockets of the United States with the largest density populations of patriot data to be utilized by military intelligence and Canada’s Maple Resolve Operations a large scale readiness exercise movement of military vehicles. Meanwhile, the closing of large retail chains beginning in August and resolving around early September due to the success of online retail and dwindling median income. With claims of eyewitnesses in Canada reporting Target stores being converted into underground military bases. The Day of Atonement lands squarely on September 23rd and heralds in the 70th Jubilee year which the Angel Gabriel delivered to the prophet Daniel signaling the second coming of Christ in 2016. And the ominous historical meeting scheduled between President Obama and the openly blatant cheerleader of The New World Order Pope Francis.

    The level of predictive programming leading up to this foreboding date with destiny has been ongoing. Something is definitely rotten in Denmark. Those with open eyes keep a watch as the elite gradually disappear to their cities underground, economic cycles come to pass, and military movements increase on domestic soil. Again we are simply evaluating the signs here mainstream media, we wouldn’t want you to be envious of our ability to analyze what you are paid to cover up.

Busted! Armed US Soldiers Headed to Ukraine Arrested for Weapons In Vienna

  • Published on Jul 30, 2015
    A few days ago, a group of American soldiers caused a security alert at Vienna’s Schwechat airport. The men were stopped while trying to travel with army weapons to Ukraine without any necessary permits, the newspaper wrote. The Austrian police had to intervene and remove the weapons. An investigation into the case was launched. The nine US soldiers were on their way from Washington to Ukraine, where they were to be deployed. “However, since there were problems with their connecting flight after a stopover in Schwechat, they had to rebook their flight and, therefore, leave the transit area,” Colonel Michael Bauer, Defense Ministry spokesman said. This bigger picture here is that Our US Troops are Being Deployed to Ukraine. Something the MSM Makes No Mention Of. Now You Know the Truth! Stay tuned for more.

Russia Would Prevail in War with US


  • Published on Jul 31, 2015
    In the event of any conventional war in Europe, Russia would easily prevail because it has the upper hand in the state of military in comparison with the United States, says an American scholar. The Russian military would prevail at any conventional war in Europe with ease,” said James Henry Fetzer, who is a retired professor in Madison, Wisconsin. “The state of the Russian military is overwhelmingly more advanced than that of the American military,” he added. The analyst made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Wednesday when asked to comment on a statement made by retired Adm. Timothy Keating, who suggested that the US Navy needs about 350 ships to meet the global demands. The Navy has currently 273 deployable battle force ships.

    At a conference hosted by Powell Tate, a public relations agency that represents US shipbuilders, Keating said, “As our Navy gets a little bit smaller, we’re facing increasing challenges for funding to get a smaller number of ships to a larger number of ports to demonstrate our readiness and partnership and our presence to all those countries in the Indo-Pacific region.” According to the retired admiral, “the Navy also needs another six submarines.” Fetzer, however, said, “This should not be taken as anything other than a commercial for this public relations agency represents US shipbuilders.” “The admiral, who is retired, appears to be a consultant to this public relations forum that represents to shipbuilders,” he added. “This is really bizarre because they are talking about a vast expansion, 50 to 75 more ships than the current level and it’s really the sort of issue that is involved in long term planning,” Fetzer noted.
  • My understanding is that, if Russian wins a war against US, it is because the Satanic cabal which rule this world allow Russia to win. This coming WW3 is a staged event. It is engineered to bring in a One World Government led by the Anti-Christ. The only way of bringing America into a One World Government is via the loss of American sovereignty. Ie. America as it is must be destroyed, Constitution shredded, rebuild, re-engineered … and finally merged into the Luciferian New World Order, One World Government.

Jimmy Carter: The U.S. Is an “Oligarchy With Unlimited Political Bribery”

  • Jimmy Carter: The U.S. Is an “Oligarchy With Unlimited Political Bribery” 
    by Jon Schwarz,  
    Former president Jimmy Carter said Tuesday on the nationally syndicated radio show the Thom Hartmann Program that the United States is now an “oligarchy” in which “unlimited political bribery” has created “a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors.” Both Democrats and Republicans, Carter said, “look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves.”

    Carter was responding to a question from Hartmann about recent Supreme Court decisions on campaign financing like Citizens United.

    HARTMANN: Our Supreme Court has now said, “unlimited money in politics.” It seems like a violation of principles of democracy. … Your thoughts on that?

    CARTER: It violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system. Now it’s just an oligarchy, with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or to elect the president. And the same thing applies to governors and U.S. senators and congress members. So now we’ve just seen a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect and sometimes get favors for themselves after the election’s over. … The incumbents, Democrats and Republicans, look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves. Somebody’s who’s already in Congress has a lot more to sell to an avid contributor than somebody who’s just a challenger.

    I’ve added Carter’s statement to this list of politicians acknowledging that money controls politics. Please let me know if you have other good examples.
