With the West Now Free to Bring 'Democracy' to Syria, Netanyahu Once Again is Beating the Iranian War Drums
Michael Aydinian via The GMM uk - Michael Aydinian
Whatsupic -- Netanyahu rapacious appetite for death and destruction seemingly holds no bounds. Once again he's beating the war drums for an attack on Iran. One by one, Israel's enemies are being taken out. The Palestinians will soon have no land of their own, yet talk about being on the warpath? One should not take lightly how almost on cue, Netanyahu couldn't wait a second! Iran is back on the grid! Bear in mind, up to now, he's always had his way. The equation here is a relatively simple one but, this time, the stakes couldn't be higher! As he moves closer to achieving his goal, the odds of WW III becoming a frightening reality, shorten!
For quite some time Iran was his focus. 'They are the great Satan; they are this; they are that!' He never let up. As per usual, every reason given for the need to launch an unprovoked attack on Iran lacked one critical ingredient - EVIDENCE! There was none. All the posturing was simply a pack of lies. How do I know this? Iran opened its nuclear facilities for inspection. 16 out of 16 Intelligence Agencies reported back saying Iran was not seeking to acquire nuclear weapons. The irony of it all is compounded by the fact only one country refuses to open it's nuclear facilities for inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency - ISRAEL!
You'd think this would shut Netanyahu up? Not one bit! With the media always donating an unchallenged platform, he simply continued to spout the same unsubstantiated bile. He then made an absolute fool of himself at the UN by holding up a drawing of a bomb more akin to one Guy Fawkes may have used 350 years ago! It was so ridiculous one could be excused for thinking this guy's a comedian! It most certainly should have ended the career of this psychopath! Of course the reason why most people are oblivious of the fact every major Intelligence Agency confirmed Iran is not the threat Netanyahu so vociferously claims is because, AS PER USUAL, the Zionist controlled media only report what suits them.
Yet our Zionist puppets traitors Cameron and Obama were perfectly happy to join the fray, with the same rhetoric, feeding us the same lies! And why not? Since the vast majority of the public are so dense, they know if these lies are repeated often enough, it will eventually sway public opinion. The truth is Iran is a peaceful nation. The last time it ventured onto foreign soil was in 1798! Israel, however, inflicts untold pain and suffering on almost all its neighbors. Whatever nuclear ambition Iran has, with Israel having not one iota of respect for international law and a war-mongering monster like Netanyahu at the helm, who's made no secret of his hostile intentions, you'd have thought Iran has every right to do what Israel always say it does - DEFEND ITSELF! I'll tell you now, if I was Iran's leader I'd burst blood vessels to acquire nuclear weapons.
This was a year ago. Russia then stepped in and brokered a deal that scuppered the 6th stage of a Zionist plot to rid Israel of countries opposed to them. 5 had already been reduced to rubble or had leaders subservient to the West installed. Syria would clear the way for the final stage which was to eliminate Iran as a perceived threat. However Syria's stay of execution came about because as cut-throat as the CIA/Mossad ISIS mercenaries were, they could not defeat Assad's forces without Western air support. As a result any talk of attacking Iran had to be placed on hold. In that time, much to the chagrin of Zionists, America and Iran, once again, were on talking terms. For a year Netanyahu never mentioned Iran. Lo and behold, now that the US has wangled it's way into Syrian air-space to commence bombing, like a Jack-in-a-box, Netanyahu leaped out of his pram - yesterday at the UN he said - IRAN IS A BIGGER THREAT THAN ISIS! Here we go again!
Every so often Zionists reveal their true colors, one the media does its level best concealing. If only people were aware of the true hell the Palestinians are going through. Israeli soldiers use kids for target practice, killing them, then celebrating by patting each other on the back. In the recent bombing of Gaza where neighborhoods were being flattened, Israelis who gathered on a hill to watch the carnage unfold cheered wildly as bombs went off! Some Zionist rabbis openly declare how it's their right to murder non Jews! None of this is ever reported yet Zionists have the gall and the audacity to push for new laws regarding 'hate speech'.
What about wealthy Zionists who contribute millions in political donations? What do they think? Well, Sheldon Adelson wants the US to drop a nuclear bomb in a desert region of Iran! I quote “then you say, see! The next one is in the middle of Tehran. So we mean business. You want to be wiped out? Go ahead and take a tough position and continue with your nuclear development.” Why is not the public informed of what this lunatic thinks? Sheldon Adelson happens to be a multi-billionaire and he is by far and away the Republican Party's biggest donor! So, here we have a diabolical situation where a delusional fool is ready and willing to provide funds that will virtually guarantee electoral success. The one condition is ............ Does one really have to spell it out?
I'll say this - ISRAEL IS THE GREATEST THREAT TO WORLD PEACE BY A MILE! The public is being hoodwinked for two main reasons - the entire corporate media quite simply is a well-oiled Zionist propaganda machine. They own 5 of the 6 giant media corporations, the other being News International owned by Rupert Murdoch who's as right-wing as Dick Cheney! Secondly, for years Zionists and Jewish lobbies have sought to infiltrate the upper echelons of power in countries that matter, notably the US and UK as well as Canada, France and several others. Their power base has grown to such an extent, we've reached the absurd situation that when it comes to fashioning policy, successive US and UK governments are placing Israel's interests at the top of the agenda. Moreover, these policies are pursued regardless of the fact that the US and UK have nothing whatsoever to gain and in all likelihood are detrimental to the very citizens they're supposed to represent.
You've got to hand it to them! Regardless of right and wrong, what they've achieved is nothing short of miraculous. Like it or not, the Zionists have us in a stranglehold so tight, even though it's becoming increasingly obvious they were responsible for 9/11, along with a host of other heinous crimes, it's one thing knowing they're up to no good; what to do about it, is another story altogether! Quite how we turn this around is not for me to say. I'm hardly qualified. What I do know, the dilemma we find ourselves in is compounded by the fact they will not stop. They'll do whatever it takes to maintain their stranglehold over proceedings, for they know only too well - if Americans somehow manage to overthrow the cabal of gangsters on Capitol Hill and in turn free the media from Zionist shackles, at best Israel's days as a belligerent bully will be over; at worst, the hunter, who so often ruthlessly preyed on weaker foe, would suddenly become the hunted.

It really takes some believing! Just a year ago the world teetered on the brink of WW III. Of course, the ordinary layman in the street had little idea this was the case. Why? Because the corporate media just happened to make nothing out of the fact that for the first time since the Cuban missile crisis in 1962, US & Russian military forces were staring down the barrel at each other! The nightmare scenario of nuclear annihilation was on the grid. All it required was a spark, just one mistake! Considering how for two weeks back in 62 the entire globe positively shuddered at the prospect of the US & Russia locking horns. Most significantly, considering how the nuclear warheads we possess today make the ones we had 52 years ago look like fire-crackers, how come this time around the entire mass-media chose not just to play down the possibility of nuclear Armageddon but ignore it altogether?
I'll tell you why: In 62 there existed 50-60 major news outlets. If 3 or 4 reported the truth, it was highly problematic for the other 50 odd to turn a blind eye, most especially if the subject matter centered around the two foremost super-powers being locked & loaded & all set to tee off! There was no way the truth could remain hidden from public gaze. However, thanks to Bill Clinton, crucial laws specifically regulating media control & ownership were ripped up without so much as a by-your-leave! Naturally, those in the media, whose job it was to inform the public of any such shenanigans were instructed not to rock the boat.
But why did Clinton do this? Because the Zionist banker/power-brokers largely responsible for getting him into the White House demanded it! End result - with the help of untold billions of printed paper money courtesy of the Zionist controlled Federal Reserve Board, 5 mega corporations owned by Zionists ended up controlling the best part of 80% of the world's media; the bulk of the rest was controlled by Rupert Murdoch's News international, a right-wing Neo-Con lunatic! The entire Western media was now controlled by literally a handful of people inextricably linked to Bankers, Armament manufacturers & Energy companies. Over the next 20 years these people would see to it politicians weren't elected. They would be selected! No more bribery in the hope politicians would succumb tp their whims! THEY WERE OWNED!
So why did I say, it takes some believing? Because a year after the public in the US & UK made it clear they were vehemently opposed to Western military intervention in Syria; a year after Russia was prepared to risk WW III for the sole purpose of eradicating the possibility of regime change in Syria, US jets today began pounding targets there! Make no mistake - the possibility of WW III is once again rearing its ugly head. Syria is the 6th country of the 7 General Wesley Clark revealed America would take out. Iran is the last obstacle. Now I've gone blue in the face telling you who controls US foreign policy. How dumb does one have to be not to realize America's actions have not only bankrupted them & in the eyes of the world their credibility has nose-dived to an all-time historic low - NONE OF THIS IS IN THEIR BEST INTERESTS? THIS IS ALL FOR THE BENEFIT OF ISRAEL!
So at 6 o'clock I switched over to the BBC & there was Fiona Bruce - Mrs Squeaky Clean! If ever there was a person who the brainless felt couldn't possibly tell a lie - HERE WAS FIONA BRUCE! How was she going to sell us this outrageous violation of international law? Her first words left me speechless. Normally that's impossible ...... but there I was gawping away! She said - 'today Labor leader Ed Miliband spelled out his plan how to make the UK believe in itself again!'...............................................................................................
.................................................................................. these dots represent my disbelief at the effrontery of these people. Would the US have done this a year ago when the Russian fleet was in the Mediterranean? No way in hell! Now they commit the very act that a year ago may well have resulted in the unthinkable & what does the BBC headline? THEY TELL US ABOUT MILIBAND'S PLANS FOR THE FUTURE - THE VERY MAN THEY INTEND TO PROPERLY SHAFT COME ELECTION TIME!
Even today RT Moscow made it clear the US weren't just bombing ISIS, the lunatic band of mercenary killers they initially assembled & supplied with arms & ammunition. No. They bombed Aleppo, a city not controlled by ISIS! The explanation given was pathetic & an insult - apparently there was ANOTHER rogue terrorist outfit that no one had ever heard of! They were bombing them! Such humungous lies are bad enough but the US have made no secret of the fact they want Assad to go.......... 'they' meaning the Israelis! THE ZIONISTS WILL NOT STOP! Tomorrow I'll have completed an article explaining the inns & outs of this whole debacle!

via Luca Manjo - "Please help me go VIRAL with this video... I just wrote out the transcript by hand... and it tells a lot about EVERYTHING... George Galloway speaking at the Senate Hearing on the 'Oil-for-food' Scandal."
George Galloway speaking at the Senate Hearing on the 'Oil-for-food' Scandal."It's a proven fact that these false documents existed, and were being circulated amongst right-wing newspapers in Bagdad and around the world in the media aftermath of the fall of the Iraqi regime. Now senator: I gave my heart and soul to oppose a policy that you promoted. I gave my political lifes' blood to try to stop the mass killing of iraqis by the sanctions on Iraq, which killed a million Iraqis, most of them children... Most of them died before they even knew they were Iraqis... but they died for no other reason other than that they were Iraqis, with the misfortune to be born at that time. I gave my heart and soul to stop you committing the disaster that you did commit in invading Iraq, and... *I told the world that your case for the war was a pack of lies. *I told the world that Iraq, contrary to your claims, did not have weapons of mass destruction. *I told the world, contrary to your claims, that Iraq had no connection to Al Queda. *I told the world, contrary to your claims, that Iraq had no connection to the atrocity on 9/11, 2001. *I told the world, contrary to your claims, that the Iraqi people would resist a British and American invasion of their country and that the fall of Bagdad would not be the beginning of the end, but merely the end of the beginning. Senator, in everything I said about Iraq, I turned out to be right, and you turned out to be wrong ~ and a hunded thousand people have paid with their lives, sixteen-hundred of them American soldiers sent to their deaths on a pack of lies ~ fifteen thousand of them wounded, many of them disabled forever on a pack of lies. If the world would had listened to Koffi Annan, who's dismissal you demanded, if the world had listened to president Shirak, who you want to taint as some kind of corrupt traitor, if the world had listened to me, and the anti-war movement in Britain, we would not be in the disaster that we are in today. Senator, this is the mother of all smoke-screens. You are trying to divert attention from the crimes that you supported, from the theft of billions of dollars of Iraq's wealth. *Have a look at the real 'oil-for-food' scandal. *Have a look at the fourteen months you were in charge of Bagdad, the first fourteen months, when 8.8 billion dollars of Iraq's wealth went 'missing' on your watch. *Have a look at Halliburton and the other American corporations that stole not only Iraq's money, but the money of the American taxpayer. *Have a look at the oil that you didn't even meter, that you were shipping out of the country and selling, the proceeds of which ~ went who-knows-where... *Have a look at the 800 million dollars you gave to American military commanders, the hand-out around the country, without even counting it, or weighing it. *Have a look at the real scandal breaking in the newspapers today, revealed in the testimony of this committee, that the biggest sanctions-busters were not me or Russian politicians, or French politicians... The real sanctions-busters were your own companies with the knivers of your own government."
