#Disillusioned #FSA Militants Surrender to the #Syrian Army
The disillusioned militants of FSA are surrendering to take advantage of the amnesty offered by the Syrian government. ITV reports:
"They emerged from the shadows of a rubble-strewn street, hands raised and stripped to the waist to ensure they weren't wearing suicide vests. But this wasn't a trap or a staged piece of propaganda. These were defectors from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) who had been besieged for more than a year and had had enough.
We happened to be in the area as the defection was being orchestrated. It took several hours of negotiation to be allowed to film the moment the fighters lay down their weapons in the silent alley.
The Syrian National Forces were nervous about us filming such a sensitive operation and insisted we blurred the faces of the soldiers involved.
The men had been convinced to make the perilous journey across sniper-scrutinised streets over several days by another defector, 33-year-old Mamoun al-Khateeb. He had become steadily disillusioned by the increasing presence and influence of Islamist forces on the rebel front lines.
Men, he claimed, preached Sharia law, while looting houses, stealing food from civilians and raping women.
We were given hundreds of photos of Khateeb and his former comrades in arms -- showing them posing with weapons and the black and green flags associated with Islamist groups like the Al Nusra Front.
They give an astonishing insight into the hidden world of the Islamist rebels a few blocks away from where we had been filming. Some showed the men prone at sandbag defences, assault rifles in hand. Others gave clues about how the men are living in the warzone, relaxing with a shisha-pipe, even cooling off in a half-filled swimming pool of a villa.
Khateeb said numerous foreign fighters had joined the rebels in the area where he had been fighting. Saudis, Libyans, even German Muslims had flooded to this suburb in recent months. He claimed more than 70 per cent of the rebel gunmen in the suburb were Islamist in their ideology.
He described the streets as a lawless jungle where competing factions fight each other for food, weapons and territory. Before the war he had worked in his family's shop - a business that had been looted by the al-Nusra Front. He said the weapons supplied to the rebels were smuggled in through Jordan, paid for by Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Officially, the government has offered an amnesty to FSA rebels if they surrender now, but the Islamist fighters are unlikely to enjoy such freedom."

#Full Version: Syrian #Christians' Deadly Battle With #Islamist Persecution
"They said they'd chop our heads off if we stayed. They said we were supporting the regime and they burnt one of my cousins." Mohammed Jelloud, a local Arab man, says of the oppression of rebel groups with ties to Al Qaeda. But now the Kurds have taken this region, which is split between Christians, Muslims and Kurds. For the Christians, the most vulnerable group, it is a godsend. Elsewhere in the country an estimated 450,000 have been displaced. "The extremists said the Christians and the Kurds were infidels and had to be killed!" Mahjoub, an elderly Christian, explains as he reveals the devastation wrought on an Orthodox church. This fanaticism is why so many Christians oppose the revolution, fearing it is controlled by radical and foreign interests. Now under Kurdish leadership, a fragile but tolerant haven has opened up here. Fadi, a young Christian, has thrown his lot in with the Kurdish police, because they offer a freedom that no one else can. "I have come to work with them because they are working to secure my lifestyle. I just want to have freedom."

#Army repels terrorists, destroys their gatherings and hideouts
A military source told SANA that the army eliminated armed terrorist groups in the neighborhoods of al-#Rashideen, #Karm al-#Maysar and #Aleppo old city.
The source added that the army clashed with terrorists who tried to attack the people of Kifr Kar and blockade the road of Aleppo-#Maarat al-Arteeq, killing and injuring scores of terrorists and destroying a number of their vehicles.
A number of terrorists were killed and many of their vehicles and weapons were destroyed in a series of operations carried out by the army units in the areas near Aleppo Central Prison and in #Haylan, #Hayyan, #Babees, al-#Mansoura, #Andan, #Hreitan and Deir Hafer.
Meanwhile, the army targeted and destroyed terrorists’ hideouts in the town of Kweires in Aleppo east-southern countryside, killing a number of terrorists and destroying a 23 mm anti-aircraft machinegun.

Countries are run by crooks and psychopaths for private profit and to establish global dominance
Syria has a public owned bank as does Iran, as did Libya and Iraq.
Countries are run by crooks and psychopaths for private profit and to establish global dominance
Central banks run countries (e.g.***), (we are controlled by a debt currency mafia because we accept their worthless paper) they are controlled by BIS that is controlled by the BoE, the bank of the permanent gov't (Pilgrims Soc.), as we are controlled it is very probable that the permanent gov't is controlled by the BoE. The BoE is headed by the head of the UK royal family and Rothschild. It is a corporation with over 1000 shareholders, not a public owned bank.
When the zionists' financial ponzi scheme called fiat (debt) currency was on the brink of collapse due to JPM, GS etc issuing trillions in paper gold and silver backed by metal that didn't exist Brown had the opportunity to rescue it by committing treason in selling the UK's gold. He sold us out. Because the bank mafia will continue printing to infinity, rescuing their ponzi by taxing to the hilt to fund bail-outs, plundering pensions, benefits, savings, even current accounts the only way they can be stopped is by rejecting their worthless paper as currency or collapsing their ponzi by buying and keeping precious metal. Their only answer is to keep the price of metals suppressed so as to keep it in circulation, this is achieved by issuing even more worthless certs for metal that doesn't exist and printing currency to infinity, inflation steals cash straight from your pocket.
All the Fed Res gold appears to have gone to China and private banks like JPM. Half the UK gold went probably to JPM.
The few have profitted mightily by criminal activity and escaped prosecution due to corrupt Western adminstrations and justice systems in the US, UK and EU, only in Iceland has financial criminal activity been punished, in the US especially it is rewarded, JPM's Jamie Dimon received £20 mil pay in 2013 (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/wall-street-bonuses-show-ceos-think-bull-market-is-over-2014-01-28 ).
At no time has the abandoning of the gold standard profitted the general population. The only reason for sustaining fiat currency is to continue the enslavement of the global population through unrepayable toxic debt created with complicit, successive gov'ts.

***"I am opposed to interest rate increases now as I always have been," Erdogan told reporters at an Ankara airport before leaving for Iran.
"But I don't have any authority to interfere in the central bank," he said, adding that he hoped the bank would make a "right decision". (Link http://uk.news.yahoo.com/turkey-central-bank-huge-rates-003911403.html )

Social Benefits of Carbon

In “The Historic, Present and Future Societal Benefits of Fossil Fuels,” (http://www.americaspower.org/sites/default/files/Social_Cost_of_Carbon.pdf ) a report prepared for the American Council for Clean Coal Energy (ACCCE), Dr. Roger Bedzek of Management Information Systems, Inc. (MISI) not only documents the manifold economic and health benefits of carbon energy, he also makes a powerful case that the evident societal benefits of carbon outweigh the conjectural costs by orders of magnitude—a range of 40-1 to 400-1. To read more about the report, see this GlobalWarming.org post by CEI’s Marlo Lewis (http://www.globalwarming.org/2014/01/22/at-last-a-report-on-the-social-benefits-of-carbon/ ).

Re: Carbon con updates
"The Coalition has been criticized for ties to energy industries that would be affected if the United States enacted any legislation targeted at reducing CO2 emissions.[13] The Coalition has been accused by Mother Jones of astroturfing.[14] For example, writing in October 2004 for The American Prospect, Nicholas Confessore described the Coalition as "an Astroturf group funded by industries opposed to regulation of CO2 emissions.".[15]


"Astroturfing is the practice of masking the sponsors of a message (e.g. political, advertising, or public relations) to give the appearance of it coming from a disinterested, grassroots participant. Astroturfing is intended to give the statements the credibility of an independent entity by withholding information about the source's financial connection. The term astroturfing is a derivation of AstroTurf, a brand of synthetic carpeting designed to look like natural grass.

On the Internet, astroturfers use software to mask their identity. Sometimes one individual operates over many personas to give the impression of widespread support for their client's agenda.[1][2] Some studies suggest astroturfing can alter public viewpoints and create enough doubt to inhibit action."

Re: Carbon con updates
No evidence behind climate denialism.

"To me, one of the most fascinating aspects of climate change denial is how deniers essentially never publish in legitimate journals, but instead rely on talk shows, grossly error-laden op-eds, and hugely out-of-date claims (that were never right to start with)..............

Powell recently finished another such investigation, this time looking at peer-reviewed articles published between November 2012 and December 2013. Out of 2,258 articles (with 9,136 authors), how many do you think explicitly rejected human-driven global warming? Go on, guess!

One. Yes, one.

Huh. Here's the thing: If you listen to Fox news, or right-wing radio, or read the denier blogs, you'd have to think climate scientists were complete idiots to miss how fake global warming is. Yet despite this incredibly obvious hoax, no one ever publishes evidence exposing it. Mind you, scientists are a contrary lot. If there were solid evidence that global warming didn't exist, or that CO2 emissions weren't the culprit, there would be papers in the journals about it. Lots of them."


clothcapclothcap on January 29th, 2014 08:49 pm (UTC)
Re: Re: Carbon con updates
That's nonsense. For years journal editors rejected papers debunking the CO2 nonsense. Papers were passed to activist scientists for scrutiny and rejected for trivial reasons.
The other issue I have with your bluster is that consensus is not scientific proof. There has never been and never will be evidence that human CO2 emissions have any detectable influence on the atmosphere.

Re: Carbon con updates
Here is a physicists take -
Lindzen and U.K. deputies
I am just watching the testimony (http://www.parliamentlive.tv/Main/Player.aspx?meetingId=14741 ) of Richard Lindzen, Donna Laframboise, and Nicholas Lewis in front of some U.K. lawmakers. They're making great points (Richard even had the chance to finally say Sure, the atmospheric sciences are surely not the fields picked by most of the brightest students; yes, the field is kind of inferior – he also added that the times are changing and the best ones might be preferring business, not physics, these days) but it's depressing to see how dense the politicians are.
They're overwhelmingly unable to understand that the IPCC members also have interests; they can't even understand that the Greenpeace and WWF activists are incompatible with the impartiality demanded by proper science; they don't understand that the sensitivity's being nonzero isn't the same thing as the claim that there is a problem with the climate; they don't understand that a high enough sensitivity is needed for the climate change to be a problem; a particularly aggressive lawmaker doesn't even understand that a 15-year hiatus (or a global warming stopped in 1998, to put it in slightly inequivalent but similar terms) is completely compatible with the last decade's being the hottest one on record (first-grader's maths is too hard for him); they can't understand that the "consensus" isn't a good way to evaluate the scientific evidence; they don't understand anything.
It boils down to some aspect of the scientific illiteracy but I can't understand what it is that makes people unable to understand such simple points.

Gore, Hitleresque
It is immoral for Al Gore to organize "fertility management" for other nations
Various influential and would-be influential people have gathered at the annual meeting in Davos. Folks like Al Gore and Bill Gates are among them. These two participated in the panel
Changing the Climate for Growth and Development (video)
Bill Gates represented some kind of a relatively traditional charity guy who has really helped people in poor nations and who noticed that there's been a huge improvement. He also predicts that there won't be any poverty in 20 years. Well, maybe, it depends on the definition of poverty.
Al Gore started to talk around 14:55 in the video above and advocated "fertility management" in Africa, something that sounds scary. You could think that he has explicitly talked about forced sterilization but he actually hasn't – he has left the issue of the methods ambiguous. At any rate, it is very clear that he is obsessed with the idea of the reduction of the number of Africans and in this sense, he is no different than the German Nazis who wanted to gradually phase out Slavs on their stolen territories.
