Hi! The world is currently in deep doodoo. Want to know why? Do you want an injection of truth? Then take The Truth Serum. See the true world develop before your very eyes. See the slow imposition of a Police State with microchip implants and 24/7 surveillance. See the disappearance of cash to be replaced with a cashless society. And much, much more...
Thank you for your not so prompt reply, but I respectfully disagree with your utter utter moronic belief that:
1. al Qaeda did 9/11 all on its own;
2. that we should love Israel;
3. that we should love Saudi Arabia even more than we should love Israel;
4. that the British government is doing a fine job over Syria.
William Bradford, the former Governor of Plymouth and one of the chroniclers of the 1621 feast, was also on hand for the great massacre of 1637:
"Those that escaped the fire were slain with the sword; some hewed to pieces, others run through with their rapiers, so that they were quickly dispatched and very few escaped. It was conceived they thus destroyed about 400 at this time. It was a fearful sight to see them thus frying in the fire...horrible was the stink and scent thereof, but the victory seemed a sweet sacrifice, and they gave the prayers thereof to God, who had wrought so wonderfully for them, thus to enclose their enemies in their hands, and give them so speedy a victory over so proud and insulting an enemy."
The rest of the white folks thought so, too. "This day forth shall be a day of celebration and thanksgiving for subduing the Pequots," read Governor John Winthrop's proclamation. The authentic Thanksgiving Day was born.
Most historians believe about 700 Pequots were slaughtered at Mystic. Many prisoners were executed, and surviving women and children sold into slavery in the West Indies. Pequot prisoners that escaped execution were parceled out to Indian tribes allied with the English. The Pequot were thought to have been extinguished as a people. According to IndyMedia , "The Pequot tribe numbered 8,000 when the Pilgrims arrived, but disease had brought their numbers down to 1,500 by 1637. The Pequot ‘War' killed all but a handful of remaining members of the tribe."
But there were still too many Indians around to suit the whites of New England, who bided their time while their own numbers increased to critical, murderous mass.

"...any military operation against Iran will likely be very unpopular around the world and require the proper international context—both to ensure the logistical support the operation would require and to minimize the blowback from it. The best way to minimize international opprobrium and maximize support (however, grudging or covert) is to strike only when there is a widespread conviction that the Iranians were given but then rejected a superb offer—one so good that only a regime determined to acquire nuclear weapons and acquire them for the wrong reasons would turn it down. Under those circumstances, the United States (or Israel) could portray its operations as taken in sorrow, not anger, and at least some in the international community would conclude that the Iranians “brought it on themselves” by refusing a very good deal."

Jeremy Scahill, whose provocative documentary Dirty Wars is released in the UK this week, has been described as a "progressive journalist" and an activist in the same mould as Glenn Greenwald. Is "progressive" a word he is comfortable with? "It's not a term I would reject in terms of my personal politics," he says, "but I see myself as an independent journalist and my mission is to try to tell stories about real people."

Having overseen an interim deal with Iran on its nuclear program, the Obama administration now intends to try to involve Iran in wider Middle East diplomacy, including an attempt to find a solution to the Syrian civil war, Israeli television reported Sunday night.
The report was one of a series of dramatic revelations and assessments in the Hebrew media on Sunday night, hours after the US and other world powers signed an interim agreement with Iran in Geneva.
Both of Israel’s main TV news channels also carried reports flatly stating that Israel’s military option is “off the table” for the foreseeable future. This claim was apparently based on assessments from inside Israel’s military establishment. Israel’s Channel 10 news reported that “the White House is briefing American journalists” with the same message: Israel cannot intervene militarily in Iran now that the interim deal has been signed.
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu publicly vowed Sunday to ensure Iran not attain nuclear weapons, but privately the prime minister was said to have acknowledged that the Geneva deal has essentially sanctioned Iran as a nuclear threshold state.
Netanyahu is “extremely angry” over the terms of the deal, under which Iran will be allowed to continue low-level enrichment of uranium for at least the next six months, a Channel 2 report said. It quoted an unnamed senior official in Jerusalem, who stated: “In Geneva, [US President] Obama established Iran as a nuclear threshold state, and Israel, the prime minister has made clear, cannot live with Iran as a nuclear threshold state.” Israel, the report continued, regards the Geneva deal as “a profound failure” by the Obama administration.
The Israel TV news reports Sunday night also claimed that the Obama administration was still misleading Israel over its newly acknowledged secret back-channel negotiations with Iran in recent months. The administration “hid the fact of the secret channel from Israel,” Channel 2 reported, even after it knew that Israeli intelligence had exposed it. Obama only reportedly told Netanyahu about the back channel less than two months ago, when they met at the White House.
Aspects of that secret channel were still being hidden, Channel 10 said.

...Instead, those opposing Obama’s “Munich moment” in Geneva (to borrow a Kerry phrase from the Syrian crisis), should focus on the larger and more permanent strategic problem: A terrorist, nuclear Iran still threatens American interests and allies, and almost certainly means widespread nuclear proliferation across the Middle East. A nuclear Iran would also be essentially invulnerable, providing a refuge that al Qaeda leaders hiding in Afghan and Pakistani caves could only dream of.
So in truth, an Israeli military strike is the only way to avoid Tehran’s otherwise inevitable march to nuclear weapons, and the proliferation that will surely follow. Making the case for Israel’s exercise of its legitimate right of self-defense has therefore never been more politically important. Whether they are celebrating in Tehran or in Jerusalem a year from now may well depend on how the opponents of the deal in Washington conduct themselves.

Writer Alan Power spotted one of his pursuers walking up the long, private driveway of his remote home on the Isle of Man.
He confronted the man who said he was looking for a pet store. Then the stranger walked off to meet two other men in a car.
He believes the men were harassing him because of his sensational claims in his book, The Princess Diana Conspiracy, The Evidence Of Murder.
...“I noticed people tailing me when I took the ferry to the mainland to get my car looked at in July. One sat next to me and the other sat behind me during the crossing. They made it pretty obvious they were tailing me.
“The same thing happened on the way back with other men making it clear they were keeping a close eye on me. One kept flexing his muscles.
...“I have had death threats before and after publishing the book but I didn’t take them too seriously. This was different. I am pretty sure some security services people came over to the island just to make a point, to let me know they are monitoring me.”

Statement by Noah Pollak, Executive Director of the Emergency Committee for Israel, on the agreement with Iran just concluded in Geneva:
"The Geneva Agreement is a defeat for the United States and the West. It fails to uphold even the minimum demand of repeated U.N. Security Council resolutions that Iran must stop enriching uranium. For the next six months, the centrifuges will not be dismantled and will continue to spin, uranium will be enriched, the 20 percent enriched uranium will stay in Iran, and a reactor designed to produce bomb-ready plutonium will remain just months away from completion. Iran will continue its march to nuclear weapons, with perhaps a brief pause in some parts of the program -- but it will be a pause that refreshes, since Iran will be rewarded right away with significant sanctions relief, with the additional likelihood that the rest of the sanctions regime will begin to crumble.
"Congress should make clear that it does not support this deal. Congress should make clear that just because the Obama administration seems to have taken all our options off the table, our allies need not follow us down this futile path of accommodating the Iranian regime's nuclear ambitions. In particular, Congress should make clear the United States will support Israel if Israel decides she must act to prevent a regime dedicated to her destruction from acquiring the means to do so."

In light of the Geneva Agreement, I went back to read Winston Churchill's October 5, 1938, speech in the House of Commons on the Munich Agreement. Here are a few highlights:
"I will begin by saying what everybody would like to ignore or forget but which must nevertheless be stated, namely, that we have sustained a total and unmitigated defeat. ..."

Top Israeli ministers harshly criticized the nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers early Sunday, with Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman saying the agreement had shifted the status quo in the Middle East.
“This brings us to a new reality in the whole Middle East, including the Saudis. This isn’t just our worry,” he told Israel Radio. “We’ve found ourselves in a completely new situation.”
When asked if this would lead to an Israeli military strike on Iran, Liberman said Israel “would need to make different decisions.”

Some of the same high-level sources who point to Richard Clarke as the US boss of the Israeli-instigated 9/11 false flag operation also claim that President Obama, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Dempsey, and other powerful Americans are considering exposing the truth about 9/11 during a second Obama term. In other words, Obama's re-election could put Israel out of business, and get Netanyahu hanged from the nearest lamp-post.

The report recognises that Saudi Arabia’s role as a key buyer for the UK defence industry is controversial. But it finds that, with other competitors in the market, there is little to suggest that ending defence sales from the UK would have any positive effect, and might actually reduce the UK’s leverage and its ability to provide training programmes.

Cabrinovic. - He (Casimirovic) is a freemason, even in some degree one of their chiefs. He travelled abroad immediately (after the men had offered themselves to carry out the assassination). He went to Russia, France and Buda-Pesth. Every time when I asked Ciganovic how far our projects had advanced, he replied that I should know when Casimirovic should return. About this time Ciganovic also told me that the freemasons had already condemned to death the heir to the throne two years ago, but that they had not found men to carry out their judgment. Later when he gave me the automatic revolver and the cartridges, he said : That man came back last evening from Buda-Pesth. I knew that he had made the journey in connection with our undertaking and that he had conferred abroad with certain circles.
The President. — Are you not simply spinning a yarn ?
Cabrinovic. — It is the pure truth and a hundred times truer than your Narodna Odbrana documents.
Premusic: - Have you read the books of Rosic?
Cabrinovic. — I have read his treatise on freemasonry.
Premusic. — Were these books distributed in Belgrade?
Cabrinovic. — I set them in type as a printer.
Premusic. — Tell me, do you believe in God or anything?
Cabrinovic. — No.
Premusic. — Are you a mason?
Cabrinovic. — (Confused, after a moment's silence and speaking loudly) Why do you ask me that? I cannot answer you on that subject.
Premusic. — Is Tankosic a mason?
Cabrinovic. — (Again after a silence). Yes, and Ciganovic also.
The President. — From which it follows that you also are a mason, for a freemason never admits to anyone but another mason that he belongs to that society.
Cabrinovic. — Please do not ask me about that subject for I shall not reply.
The President. — Tell me something more about the motives. Did you know before deciding to attempt the assassination that Tankosic and Ciganovic were freemasons? Had the fact of you and they being freemasons an influence on your resolve?
Cabrinovic. — Yes.
Tm: President. — Did you receive from them the mission to carry out the assassination?
Cabrinovic. — I received from no one the mission to carry out the assassination, Freemasonry had to do with it because it strengthened me in my intention. In freemasonry it is permitted to kill. Ciganovic told me that the freemasons had condemned to death the Archduke Franz Ferdinand more than a year before.
The president. - Did he tell you that from the very beginning or only after you spoke to him of your wish to carry out the assassination?
Cabrinovic. — We had already spoken about freemasonry but he said nothing to me of the condemnation to death before we had quite decided to carry out the assassination.
The President. — Did you speak about freemasonry with Ciganovic?
Princip (insolently). — Why ask me that ?!
The President. — I ask because I must know. Did you speak to him about it or not?
Princip. - - Yes, Ciganovic told me that he was a freemason.
The President. — When did he tell vou that?
Princip. -- he told me when I was asking about the means of carrying out the assassination. He added that he would speak with a certain person and that he would receive the necessary means. On another occasion, he told me that the heir to the throne had been condemned to death in a masonic lodge.
The President. — And are you also a freemason?
Princip. — Why that question? I shall not reply. (After a short silence) : No.
The President. — Is Cabrinovic a mason?
Princip. — I do not know. Perhaps he is. He told me once that he was going to join a lodge.
PARIS-- Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia told Vladimir Putin and the other Russian officials he met with in Russia a couple of weeks ago that Saudi Arabia is taking the lead in the Middle East following the demise of Qatar. This was reported by Lebanese journalist Scarlett Haddad in an August 8th article in L'Orient le Jour, the major French-language daily in Lebanon
...Because of the failure of his "diplomatic" offensive, the "BRICS" diplomat says that Bandar will now launch an offensive against Syria, aimed at finally removing Bashar al-Assad from power. Bandar apparently announced that results would be visible on the ground in the coming months and has decided to create a new balance of power in Syria in favor of the opposition that would compel Russia and its allies to give up Assad in the context of international negotiations. At the same time, Bandar intends to create great difficulty for Iraq and the Hezbollah, which are in the process of aiding Assad. In Lebanon, Bandar instructed thus his allies — Hariri, Jumblatt, Geagea — to block any possibility for the Hezbollah and Aoun's party, the March 8th Coalition, to come to power again, and for them to gain once again a blocking minority.
Sources in Lebanon close to General Aoun fully confirmed this black scenario, that Bandar will try a full onslaught to eliminate Bashar al-Assad, in the course of September and October. "Times ahead will be terrible," he said, "the West has opted for a strategy of chaos and destruction of the entire area." He also noted the hideous massacres which occurred in the last days in the Latakia governorate — Abu Makka and Obin — where gangs of jihadists executed whole families and in the case of Obin exterminated a whole village.

Among the host of conspiracy theories surrounding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy are variations that point the finger at agencies of the U.S. government, all the way up to the vice president.
Others connect the dots and find the Soviet Union at the center of the plot, highlighting Lee Harvey Oswald’s mysterious defection to the communist nation and return to the U.S. with a Russian wife.
But a former Soviet-bloc spy chief who was active at the time of the Nov. 22, 1963, assassination says Moscow’s fingerprints are on both scenarios.
Lt. Gen. Mihai Pacepa, in his book “Disinformation”, presents evidence that Oswald was recruited by the KGB to kill Kennedy when he was a U.S. Marine stationed at the Atsugi Air Station in Japan, the home of the U-2 spy plane.
