Why did a US CIA drone kill Taliban leader days before peace talks?

It’s my assertion that whenever “The Enemy” wishes to enter peace talks, it’s “The West” that refuses terms and responds with violence. The CIA assassination of TTP leader Hakimullah Mehsud is the most recent example of this long standing policy of blatant aggression.

The Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif recently invited Hakimullah Mehsud, the leader of the Tehrik-i Taliban Pakistan for high level, direct peace talks. Days before the meeting and in direct violation of Pakistani sovereignty, the CIA assassinated Mehsud along with 25 other people in a drone bombing in the Federally Administered Tribal Area (FATA) of northern Pakistan.

Negotiating a settlement with the Taliban is the only option left to “The West”, one they openly admitted and committed to in the summer.

The context for the drone strike has to raise the question of whether John Brennan, head of the CIA, is deliberately attempting to forestall any peace in the region. Why was Hakimullah Mehsud killed when he agreed to peace talks?

This of course isn’t the first time such peace talks have been derailed by Western aggression.

The Pakistani Taliban will of course seek revenge and will bomb mainland Pakistan as a response.

So who stands to gain?

In June 2011 Radio 4′s Today Show had a very interesting  discussion with Michael Semple, the former Deputy to the EU Special Representative for Afghanistan and a key proponent of talking to the Taliban. Here’s what he had to say on the subject:

Western military theory is based primarily on Carl von Clausewitz’s teachings, what is taught in every single military academy is;

“War is not merely a political act, but also a political instrument, a continuation of political relations, a carrying out of the same by other means”

The Afghan War Logs showed the true nature of the Afghan War, one that the media doesn’t report on.

Is it democracy that keeps western nations at war? Or the armies and the vested interests now massed behind them?

President Eisenhower’s farewell message to America was a simple warning against the “disastrous rise of misplaced power” of a “military-industrial complex” with “unwarranted influence on government”.

A burgeoning defence establishment, backed by large corporate interests, would one day employ so many people as to corrupt the political system. (His original draft even referred to a “military-industrial-congressional complex”.) This lobby, said Eisenhower, could become so huge as to “endanger our liberties and democratic processes”.

I wonder what Eisenhower would make of today’s America, with a military grown from 3.5 million people to 5 million. The western nations face less of a threat to their integrity and security than ever in history, yet their defence industries cry for ever more money and ever more things to do.

The cold war strategist, George Kennan, wrote prophetically:

“Were the Soviet Union to sink tomorrow under the waters of the ocean, the American military-industrial complex would have to remain, substantially unchanged, until some other adversary could be invented.”

That adversary is Islam and virtually every single country that has a large Muslim population.

The war on terror has fulfilled this prophecy fears, as Britain has followed America’s lead and sunk into a swamp of kidnapping, torture and imprisonment without trial.

The belligerent posture of the US and Britain towards the Muslim world has fostered antagonism and moderate threats in response. The bombing of extremist targets in Pakistan is an invitation for terrorists to attack us, and then a need for defence against such attack. A self fulfilling perpetual cycle of violence.

Only last week three British Royal Marines went on trial charged with murdering an Afghan man in cold blood while in their custody.

Meanwhile, the opportunity cost of appeasing the complex is astronomical.

 “Every gun that is made is a theft from those who hunger”

For each long range cruise missile and bomber built a hospital ward and a classroom in Britain doesn’t get built.

As long as bullets are fired in war, there will be a company profiting from their sale, with the invention of the global war against terrorism, it provides a blank cheque opportunity for the defence industry – the military industrial complex – the scenery maybe variable – Iraq or Afghanistan – the money source remains the constant and the end result remains constant.

Yet your average Daily Mail reading Britain will be fed the myth that “they hate us for our freedom & democracy”.

It’s because our militarised media is so strong that no one will believe that it’s possible that our armed forces are capable of committing such evil acts such as breaking into people’s homes, killing them while they slept and then burning their bodies.

Still want to know why they hate us?

It becomes hard to be taken seriously if you are talking peace, yet continue to kill the people you want to bring to the negotiating table.

War is a conduit to achieve a political objective, if you have no political objective to achieve, or the remit is changed regularly as has been the case in Afghanistan, then you are in a perpetual state of war, a never ending war, that has no end game in sight.

Violence begets violence, a deadly self-fulfilling foreign policy prophecy.

Liam Fox Joins NeoCons at Bahrain Symposium

Liam fox

What will Liam Fox, the former disgraced Defence Secretary, be doing this weekend?

He’s one of the chief guests at the Bahrain Symposium, that’s designed to rally Western opinion to the side of the Bahrain government in its struggle against street protests and civil rights demonstrations.

The participating institutions and key note speakers read like an A-Z of the Neoconservative directory, with the overlord himself, George W Bush’s ambassador to the UN and war-monger supreme John Bolton given top billing.

Be under no illusion as to which direction Bahrain is being pulled – further into the direction of America.

Which begs the question why has the FCO and our Government sanctioned Liam Fox to speak at this event?

It’s bad enough that the former Metropolitan Police Commander John Yates “of the yard” is working for and defending a blood-stained Middle East tyranny, but should we really be surprised with Liam Fox getting in on the blood soaked action?

After all this is a man who was at the centre of serious allegations of colluding with Mossad and Zionist interests alongside his “aide” Adam Werrity.

The further promotion of a divisive and false narrative of the “Sunni Vs Shia” schism is being played throughout the Middle East, depending on your perspective you either see it as an Arab Spring or as a Arab Firestorm – with outside influences stating their claim to how the MENA bloc should be carved up. A new Sykes-Picot.

It has been a long held prejudice of the western nations that the Muslim lands cannot manage democracy & that the only way to ensure control over the former colonies was to prop up highly controlling regimes as a way of ensuring stability.

The actions of the FCO have not gone unnoticed by Sarah Leah Whitson, the Director of Human Rights Watch Middle East and North Africa Programme, who was scathing in her assessment of the governments aims in the region:

Twitter capture

Ambassador Iain Lindsays’ only comments echoed statements from the regime about Iranian involvement in Bahrain. Speaking to the regime owned Gulf Daily News, he said:

“Iain Lindsay also said there was “increasing evidence” that Iran was “providing support to people here who are bent on violence”

Iain Lindsay UK Ambassador to Bahrain

While the Ambassador sits in the palace telling the King what to do, it leaves many British Muslims questioning the role of our Government with regards to the ongoing democracy movement and creates a real sense of anger that the UK’s Ambassador would echo the Government’s main line of attack against the opposition.

They have regularly called on opposition figures to denounce terrorism, despite it already happening, played up talk of reforms and of course regularly blame Iran for “instigating protests and violence” in Bahrain.

With the Neocons having their public relations pow-wow this weekend in Manama, one really has to question what our Government means when they throw around terms like freedom, democracy, justice and supporting human rights.

NEVER FORGET the atrocities committed since September 11

John Pilger – Breaking The Silence, Truth And Lies In The War On Terror

It’s been eleven years since 9/11, while 2,916 people died on that day, Millions have been killed & felt the wrath of America’s revenge in the ensuing wars. That one event of 9/11 has been used to justify every single bit of criminal action committed by the US & her junior partners ever since.

A few years ago I wrote a piece for the Muslim Public Affairs Committee UK titled the “Septembers of our lives”

I rehashed and added to that a year later, including several other terrorist atrocities committed on September 11 that the media don’t make a song and dance about.

With the outpouring of 9/11 propaganda, I had a chance to drop a few of my own. Hence the blogs about:

Do you remember the five Israeli’s who filmed the 9/11 attacks & were caught celebrating?

Bombs on the George Washington bridge & the Israeli’s that were caught with bombs & Arab disguises

Israel had prior knowledge of 9/11 attacks

You see if I had the power of Murdoch’s media behind me, I could endlessly play those reports until the whole world believed it to be the 100% unassailable truth.

America & her partners got more than their pound of flesh when they obliterated Iraq, decimated Afghanistan, pulverised Pakistan & turned the Muslim world into one sectarian driven nightmare. Any dignity or good will you had on THAT morning has long since evaporated.

I cannot sugarcoat it for you, so before you accuse me of harbouring a conspirational agenda, go and read an earlier post of mine “The False Charges of Conspiracy Theory”.

Many media bods (propagandists) argue that if 9/11 was an inside job than surely someone would have broken ranks and spilled the beans by now.

Watch the above interview and see what Richard Clarke, the Chief Counter Terror adviser to the White House 1998-2002 had to say. If you don’t have time to watch the entire interview, watch from 09:00 onwards.

And you can see for yourself where all that 9/11 charity money went to as well, some of the 9/11 profiteers, frauds, and fools have been revealed.

Just don’t expect to hear anyone accuse the military industrial complex of profiteering of the back of 9/11 anytime soon though.

A message to the American government, stop using the excuse of 9/11 to justify every single thing you do to kill Muslims the world over.

Stop lying to your own citizens, the statistics show that since 9/1, only 33 deaths were from “Muslim” terrorism against an unbelievable 150,000 deaths from murders within America itself.

Perhaps it’s time for America to act decisively and launch “The War Against Murder”.

Help for Heroes OR Help for Cowards?

Which of the above best describes the reality of the global war against Islam?

Eight members of an Afghan family, including six children, were killed by a Nato airstrike three days ago.

A U.S. terminator drone strike hit a village mosque in northwest Pakistan, at least 10 people were killed, six days ago.

The consequences of your global war against Islam/terror/brown people barely makes the news anymore.

We used to be “collateral damage” we’re not even worth two words anymore.

Do you really want to know what’s perverse & terrible?

Yes I support the troops, I support Joe Glenton when he said “British troops are dying in Americas’ wars”

I support the troops when they said the “Afghan War is about strategic influence; economics & mineral wealth”

You sold your soul to the American devil, Great Britain.

Do you still want that answer to your oft asked question, why is the Muslim world so angry?

When will you get it? – The U.S. will NEVER leave Iraq

US leaves Iraq….yeah right. The second world war ended in 1945 & guess what, The US army is still in Japan & Germany….like cockroaches, they never leave.

I’m sure the networks back home have been repeating the great liars speech ad nauseam, and I’m pretty sure it’s gone down unchallenged, shame someone like John Pilger will never get any airtime.

The duplicity of the mass media has to be noted in the part it played in manufacturing consent for it’s illegal invasion of Iraq. It was the war you didn’t see, that we must resist the media’s lies & government’s propaganda.

We should never forget the corporate & mass media’s ongoing complicity in Iraqi war crimes.

And we’ll never forget the lies, The Curveball That Cost Over A Million Iraqi Lives.

I’m pretty sure the mass media is not reporting the following, that the US never leave a country they invade, they still have bases in Germany & Japan, you know the second world war ended in 1945 right?

At least some parts of the media have noted:

“the U.S. involvement there is anything but over”

Dr. David Halpin stated that the aim was of the “US, UK & Israeli governments to install a zionist identity” in the Middle East.

We’ll never forget what you did in Fallujah.

You don’t undertake a building project that’s larger than vatican city to leave it behind. The US embassy has everything Iraqi’s once had – clean running water, electricity, gas, security and hospitals – what they do not have, and will probably never have thanks to the invaders destruction of Iraqi infrastructure.

Whilst the US army flies off home, it’s to be replaced with another cowardly, thieving, murdering, paing and pillaging force of equal measure, the piece of shit mercenaries that were once Blackwater, then XE and now go by the name of ACADEMI.

ACADEMI/Blackwater latest rebranding comes as USTC Holdings, an investor consortium, needs a new name to get back into Iraq.

Of course Blackwater were banned from Iraq after butchering Iraqi civilians. That audition was good enough to get the gig to protect the scumbag gulf arab rulers

But what good is a law if you can’t re-write it?

War is big business.

Every bullet made, every missile fired, every gun lock and loaded is profit for the military industrial complex, it’s profit for the pro war lobbyists and the corporations.

And now the same war drums beat loudly for Israel again, this time Iran is fair game.

These lunatics really are going for another war – the dossiers, the presentations at the UN, the WMD’s, the palaces that were built on top of underground weapon facilities – the lies, the lies, the lies.

All bought to you courtesy of our lying government and pro israeli politicians.

The onus, once again lies on our shoulders, do we want to see a repeat of Iraq?

Millions of us took to the streets in the run up to the 2003 invasion and it got us nowhere.

Millions of us signed petitions, and it got us nowhere.

There are only two things that this system understands and that is money and blood.

The Akh is currently away, he has not been raped and is currently working on a plantation picking bananas & has run out of PG Tips tea and is having to drink coffee. He returns sometime in January 2012

The Bullshit Iranian assassination plot against the Saudi ambassador

The bullshit Iranian assassination plot against the Saudi ambassador, a plot created by the Israeli’s to be executed by (US created) narco traffickers in Washington, with hundreds of dead freedom loving american patriots as collateral damage.

Can you smell the manure?

Being the sucker for punishment that I am, I’ve just finished watching newsnight where the BBC propaganda team allowed some pretty ludicrous claims by James Rubin (zionist) & an American stooge Iranian dissident to lay the groundwork as to why America and every single country in the world should go and bomb the shit out of Iran.

Lets be real the zionists are masters at getting goy to kill goy – so lets get the Americans who are butt buddies with the Saudi’s & every single other repressive, totalitarian regime in the Middle East to go kill the evil Iranians.

Hell, the Sunni ruled Arab Middle East wouldn’t have a problem with killing a million Muslim Shia, the rulers, not the people of course.

You can imagine the Saud king’s media right now looping the cleverly crafted speeches & evidence from the americans to kill Adel al-Jubeir, the saudi ambassador.

Right now I can’t believe that there’s no scepticism being expressed in the media. All the sheep are dancing to the same marching drum.

Remember the smoking guns that acted as triggers before for illegal invasions?

Yellow cake, aluminium tubes, 45 minutes…..WMD’s

So let’s just get this clear, of all the places in the world where Iran could kill a Saudi diplomat, it would choose Washington, DC, obviously. A place which is a nice cushy target, where there’s no security and one can just fly in and do a nice clean wet job.

Instead the fiendishly clever Iranian revolutionary guards (a bit like the oh so feared & nightmare inducing revolutionary guards of Saddam Hussein…that didn’t exist) they took a leaf out of the yankee handbook and outsourced it to a couple of local Iranian-Americans Manssor Arbabsiar and Gholam Shakuri and told them to get on with it.

Because when you need such a job done, that’s what you do, lurk around telephone booths calling the cards that have been left in there, hoping you might just get the bloody A Team to do the job for you.

So this gun for hire goes to Mexico and links up with a Mexican narco trafficker and asks him for an assassin, because they’ve got plenty of them lying around, who can sneak across the border and do the hit.

Then again, if I wanted Adel al-Jubeir, the Saudi ambassador dead, I would have poisoned the ferrero rocher at his reception, no, stop, ambassador you’re really spoiling us…. or failing that, knowing how the Saud’s love themselves some young filipino & bangladeshi boys I’m sure a “sex game gone wrong” type of set up could have been put in motion.

If your intelligence has not been insulted, then you really are a dumb piece of shit.

Leave your contact details below as I have some magic beans that I want to sell you.

It’s ridiculous and this entire absurd scenario has to be dismissed for the lunacy that it is.

Are they really assuming that the public and the world is that dumb?

The bigger the lie, the more they believe.

Go read my lengthy posts on “creating the terror threat” to help you understand how the entire game is played.

This scheme is no more crazier than the ones dreamt up by the FBI.

A typical infiltration scheme works like this.

They will plant someone in a mosque and that individual will find and groom the most dissatisfied & crazy attendee of the masajid (not hard to do, I’m perfectly qualified for this role, get in touch shit heads, seriously, what you are waiting for?) and then offer him a terrorist scheme to kill the kuffar and get into heaven quick. Which is why the FBI have been found to organize almost all the known terror plots in the US.

When the patsy agrees to do it – The Portland Christmas Tree Bomber – How The FBI Created, Trained & Supplied “An Islamic Terrorist” – you’ll get a press conference with all the bells and whistles, announcing to the world how america’s finest have just averted the worlds biggest terrorist plot.

If you can’t smell a big, fat, lying dirty zionist rat behind this scheme to force the saudi’s or america to fight a war on it’s behalf, then there is no hope for you. Go stick your head in the oven now.

Oh and it’s coming up to re-election time for Obama, America loves a war president, and the rapist, murderer in charge of shit is desperate to be re-elected.

Get it yet?

Liam Fox & Adam Werritty, but no mention of Luke Coffey, CIA agent with access all areas pass at the MOD

The big story is of Liam Fox & his special relationship with Adam Werritty, homo-honeytraps aside, the real story here is of another one of Fox’s special advisors Luke Coffey that is going unreported.

Liam “I’m not a homo” Fox hired an American, Luke Coffey to work in the Defence Department as a special advisor.

On 6 June 2010, The Sunday Times reported that Liam Fox, the UK Defence Minister lets a US ‘mole’ roam the Ministry of Defence

According to the Sunday Times in June 2010:

UK Defence Secretary Liam Fox hired Luke Coffey as a special adviser.

Luke Coffey runs the London branch of an American think tank called CENSA (Council for Emerging National Security Affairs).

At least a quarter of the members listed on its website have been in the CIA or other American intelligence agencies. They include Matthew Thompson, a former CIA analyst in the Directorate of Intelligence; Jeff Benson, who worked in the US Office of Naval Intelligence; Sean Bielat, who serves in the United States Marine Corps Reserve as an intelligence watch officer; and Paul Crespo, who served as a defence and naval attaché at American embassies in the Balkans, the Gulf and Latin America. Coffey was encouraged to establish a London chapter by one of his former army commanders.

Luke Coffey has been issued with a pass giving him access to all areas of the Ministry of Defence.

Liam Fox now wants the UK to buy American, rather than British made military equipment.

Adam Werritty is a director of a company called Security Futures and has been seen setting up deals where the real Weapons of Mass Destruction (British made military exports) can be sold – Sri Lanka, Libya and the Gulf States who are so scared of a revolution they have bought in crypto soldier of jesus, Eric Prince and his Blackwater/Xe mercenaries to protect the scumbag shakes (misspelt deliberately).

Former UK armed forces minister Kevan Jones has told the Guardian that Fox’s unrecorded meetings with Adam Werritty could pose “a threat to national security”.

So Liam “The lady doth protest too much” Fox has a thing for hiring young men (as special advisers) who have their own financial interests and those of the American military before any loyalty to Britain.

What was that about THE special relationship again?

The Military Industrial Complex runs shit….ask Dr. Fox

America – You can no longer use 9/11 to justify your actions

It’s been ten years since 9/11, the one single event that’s used to justify every single bit of criminal action committed by the US & her junior partners ever since.

I was really drawn out over whether or not to comment any further on what has been the overkill of the 9/11 industry this week. It really was a good week to bury bad news, chemical bombs were being used by Nato in Bani Walid, but no, all you were bombarded with was the constant images and flashbacks to THAT morning.

A few years ago I wrote a piece for MPACUK titled the “Septembers of our lives”

I rehashed and added to that a year later, including several other terrorist atrocities committed on September 11 that the media don’t make a song and dance about.

With the outpouring of 9/11 propaganda, I had a chance to drop a few of my own. Hence the blogs about Bombs on the George Washington bridge & the Israeli’s that were caught with bombs & Arab disguises as well as the five Israeli’s who filmed the 9/11 attacks & were caught celebrating?

You see if I had the power of Murdoch’s media behind me, I could endlessly play those reports until the whole world believed it to be the 100% unassailable truth. The same way the murdoch owned media empire will make you believe that two planes made the towers collapse.

Perhaps it’s time to listen to your hereos?

But then again nothing hit world trade centre tower 7 & it fell exactly the same way as the other towers that were hit by planes, strange huh?

And like my man said, America & her partners got more than their pound of flesh when they obliterated Iraq, decimated Afghanistan, pulverised Pakistan & turned the Muslim world into one sectarian driven nightmare. Any dignity or good will you had on THAT morning has long since evaporated.

My fellow blogger Julaybib dropped a piece titled “The Obligatory 9/11 Anniversary Blog” while the consistently irrepressible Mehdi Hasan noted “How the fear of being criminalised has forced Muslims into silence”

Many media bods (propagandists) argue that if 9/11 was an inside job than surely someone would have broken ranks and spilled the beans by now.

Watch the above interview and see what Richard Clarke, the Chief Counter Terror adviser to the White House 1998-2002 had to say.

Perhaps it’s time for “The War on Murder?”
