US, NATO, their footsoldiers  
2014, a good year for NATO by Manlio Dinucci December 2014
2014 has been the year of resurrection of the Atlantic Alliance, through the coup in Ukraine and the Daesh offensive in Iraq and Syria. These operations organized covertly by NATO, now allow it to replay the scenario of the Cold War. Thus has the US again become the "indispensable power".

How Vladimir Putin Upset NATO’s Strategy December 2014 by Thierry Meyssan
Russia is reacting to the economic war which NATO is waging against her in the way she would have reacted in a conventional war. She allowed herself to be hit by unilateral "sanctions" in order to better lead the opponent to a battleground of her own choosing. Simultaneously, she has signed agreements with China to safeguard her future and with Turkey to disrupt NATO. As long ago, against France or Germany, her initial defeat could be the guarantee of her victory in the end.


At the annual summit on security organized by the Bertelsmann Foundation and NATO in Munich in 2007, President Vladimir Putin had stressed that the interest of Western Europeans was not only overseas but also and especially with Russia. Since then, he has continued to try to build economic relations, including the construction of the North Stream pipeline under the leadership of former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder. For its part, the United States has done everything to prevent this rapprochement, including the organization of the Kiev coup and the South Stream pipeline sabotage.
According to the Atlanticist press, Russia would have been severely impacted by the unilateral "sanctions" - in reality acts of economic war - imposed on the occasion of the annexation of Crimea to the Federation or of the destruction of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing and by lower oil prices. The ruble has lost 40% of its value, wasted investments in the South Stream gas pipeline cost $ 4.5 billion and the food embargo has cost $ 8.7 billion. The Atlanticist media assures us that Russia is now definitely ruined and isolated politically.
The Atlanticist press however is at an impasse concerning the consequences of this economic war in the European Union. Besides the ban on food exports which is likely to destroy whole sections of its agriculture, the renunciation of South Stream will weigh very seriously on the future of the Union by increasing the price of energy.

It seems that the unilateral "sanctions" have had the unintended consequence of deflating oil prices. Indeed, this began on June 20, but deviation from usual variations began only at the end of July, at the time of the first economic "sanctions". Oil prices having no relation to the law of supply and demand, but as with any speculative market, with the volume of speculative capital, the moving of Russian capital following the announcement of sanctions accelerated the process. Initially the fall in oil prices was attributed to an effort by Saudi Arabia to stop US investments in shale gas and non-conventional oil but, at the meeting of OPEC it turned out that the Saudis were probably not the cause. Moreover, it seemed impossible that Saudi Arabia would be speculating against its United States sovereign.

Whatever the case may be, Russia surprised Washington by upsetting the diplomatic chess board: Vladimir Putin visited Turkey, a NATO member state, just after US Vice-President Joe Biden, to conclude huge economic agreements. Not only do these bypass the Alliance’s unilateral sanctions, but they deeply disrupt them.
Turkey today is a country poised to become a terrible dictatorship. According to the State Department -though complacent vis-à-vis a member of NATO – the internet is censored; the government has abused its power by stopping corruption investigations conducted against its members and their families; it has punished the police and the judiciary that led these investigations; minorities have no rights, except the three designated minorities in the 1923 Treaty of Lausanne; the Erdoğan government is holding hundreds of political prisoners (mainly senior officers guilty of having contacted the Chinese Army, opposition politicians, journalists and lawyers); torture is widespread, arbitrary detention and extrajudicial killings are legion.


President Erdoğan has built the world’s largest palace. He did it in a natural park,
while the courts had forbidden him to do so. It cost taxpayers $ 615 million.

The criminal drifting of the Erdogan administration has become a major concern within NATO. All the more since Turkey is proving to become also a reluctant ally. Thus, it continues to help jihadists in their fight against the Kurdish people (though very predominantly Sunni) instead of actively joining the United States’ coalition against the Islamic Emirate. This is why Vice President Joe Biden visited Ankara on November 22nd , manifestly to threaten President Erdoğan if he did not march to US orders.
However, on December 1st, Putin also went to Ankara. Distinguishing between economic and political issues, he had a long prepared offer: an unprecedented economic alliance between the two nations. Understanding that this unexpected offer was his only way out in relation to Washington, President Erdoğan signed all the documents that had been written by the Russians. He accepted the strengthening of the submarine pipeline linking his country to Russia via the Black Sea; he bought Russian gas at a good price and even civilian nuclear power plants to power his industry; he delivered his agricultural products to Russia despite the embargo by all other Atlantic States; etc.
For NATO, the Turkish problem is turning into a nightmare.
Vladimir Putin certainly has not changed his mind about Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. He is a petty criminal who joined the Muslim Brotherhood, was propelled to power with the help of the CIA, and he now behaves like a true mafia boss. But the Russian president is used to dealing with oligarchs or heads of state in Central Asia that are no better. He himself arrived at the Kremlin by infiltrating the circles of Boris Yeltsin and Berezovsky.
For his part, Erdoğan knows he owes his power to NATO, and now it is taking him to task. He has no problem doing the splits: political ally to Washington and economic ally to Moscow. He knows that no State has ever gotten out of the Alliance, but he imagines he can stay in power via this double game.
Now let us observe the strategy of Vladimir Putin.
The power of the United States resides both in its currency, which they impose on the rest of the world through the control of the oil market, and on its army.
NATO has just launched an economic war against Russia. For the purposes of propaganda, it masks its attacks under the term "sanctions". However, sanctions would assume an indictment, a trial and a verdict. Not in this case. The most serious "sanctions" had even been imposed after the destruction of a civilian aircraft in Ukraine, when in all probability it was shot down by the new authorities in Kiev.
In response, Vladimir Putin first leaned away from the countries of Western Europe and towards the Far East by signing the largest contract in history with his Chinese partners. Then he used Turkey against NATO to circumvent Western business "sanctions". Whether with China or with Turkey, Russia sells energy in local currency or barter, never in dollars.
Russian experts have calculated that Washington would act if oil prices remained below 60 dollars a barrel for more than six months. Two months ago, the Governor of the Central Bank of Russia, Elvira S. Nabiullina, testified before the Duma that she was ready for this scenario, the institution holding sufficient reserves.
Therefore, if for the moment Russia is seriously affected by the NATO economic attack, the situation could be reversed in six months. To maintain its domination over the world, Washington would then be forced to intervene to drive up oil prices. But in the meantime, this war will have sunk the European Union and NATO, while Russia will have reoriented its economy towards its Chinese ally.
Ultimately, Russia is acting here as it has always done. Formerly, she practiced the "strategy of scorched earth" when Napoleon’s France or the Germany of Adolf Hitler invaded. It destroyed its own resources instead of leaving them to enemy troops and kept retreating to the East. Then it surged back against invaders exhausted by their overly prolonged penetration.

Defanger of US-NATO footsoldiers interviewed
Bashar el-Assad interview with Paris-Match December 2014
Paris Match: Mr. President, three years into this war, and considering how things have turned out, do you regret that you haven’t managed things differently at the beginning, with the appearance of the first signs of the revolution in March 2011? Do you feel that you are responsible for what happened?
Bashar el Assad: Even in the first days of the events, there were martyrs from the army and the police; so, since the first days of this crisis we have been facing terrorism. It is true that there were demonstrations, but they were not large in number. In such a case, there is no choice but to defend your people against terrorists. There’s no other choice.

US-NATO’s Cold War 2.0 With Russia. How to Reverse the Tide of Global Warfare?
October 2014 by Vladimir P. Kozin
The continuation of the Cold War 1.0 or the beginning of the Cold War 2.0 created a number challenges and threats for Europe and for the Russian Federation, in particular.
Nowadays, more and more experts underscore that a new Cold War really exists: some experts claim that the new Cold War is the continuation of the previous one known as the Cold War 1.0 that counterproductively embraced the globe during last century for a quite a long time; while others argue that the new war has acquired a qualitatively new phenomena – in the form of the Cold War 2.0.
The proponents of the second theory argue that the current crisis really has a new dimension that its previous pattern in the form of the Cold War 1.0 vanished in the haze officially in November 1990 when European nations in their Charter for a New Europe signed in Paris solemnly heralded its official end.
Personally, I am of opinion that the Cold War 1.0 has ended in 1990 – at least between major global powers and at least politically. The radical difference between the Cold War 1.0 and 2.0 is that the first one had a global dimension while the second one is actually in a bilateral mode – between the USA and Russia, and NATO and Russia.

Just Another Sin For Luciferians
ISIL [Daesh] slaughters 1700 Iraqi Shiite soldiers June 2014
The advance of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) on Iraq has halted after a week of fighting.
The ISIL ("Daesh" in Arabic) has executed at least 1,700 Iraqi Shiite soldiers in Tikrit. The private army released footage of the massacre, which was promptly confirmed by the U.S. Department of State.
The ISIL is headed by Prince Abdul Rahman and commanded by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. It is overseen by U.S., French and Saudi officers. Thanks to the delivery of new weapons and the corruption of Iraqi officers and parliamentarians, it was able to conquer in a week the predominantly Sunni part of Iraq.

Who is the Pentagon fighting against in Syria?
November 2014
US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel addressed a two-page memorandum last week to National Security Advisor Susan Rice, in which, according press leaks, he requested clear instructions for conducting the intervention in Syria.
Secretary Hagel would like to know who he is supposed to be targeting: Daesh alone or Daesh and Damascus?
Meanwhile, the Pentagon is keeping a low profile (3 sorties per day). It refuses to destroy Syrian military targets and simply strikes civilian facilities (refineries, grain silos).

Re: Who is the Pentagon fighting against in Syria?
Answer: NATO - CIA trained and aided foot-soldiers. Wars are created for the profit of the few, including banksters - loans at extortionate rates to W. regimes to buy weapons, fund logistics and increase national debts, zionists - to install puppet regimes that kneel to NATO, IL and the US regime, various corporations including arms mfrs, big oil, big agriculture, reconstruction co's like Cheney's Haliburton and of course the 10%ers aka charities.
Who pays? Us.
In my opinion.

Report: Solar Is Way Worse Than Other Renewables
[...] The report writers calculated a levelized costs—the estimated economic cost per megawatt-hour of electricity generated using each technology. And it didn't end well for solar. According to the analysis, new coal and natural gas plants cost just over $64 per megawatt-hour; onshore wind $102; nuclear power $115; and utility-scale solar plants $127.
Why? It seems, according to Technology Review, to be because of the manufacturing of solar cells. Most cells are manufactured in China and, there, electricity is incredibly carbon-intensive. Combine that with the fact that the cells use important metal resources, and the overall economic impact isn't good.

Marine Le Pen
Crisis in Ukraine is ‘all EU’s fault’ – France’s Marine Le Pen
Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right National Front party, says the EU is to blame for the crisis in Ukraine as it forced the situation where Kiev had to choose between East and West.
Now that France is joining sanctions against Russia over the alleged direct interference in the political crisis in Ukraine and Paris is considering suspending the €1.2 billion deal of two Mistral helicopter carrier ships ordered by Russia, the leader of the biggest parliamentary faction of the French parliament has her own opinion on Ukraine’s turmoil.
“The crisis in Ukraine is all the European Union’s fault. Its leaders negotiated a trade deal with Ukraine, which essentially blackmailed the country to choose between Europe and Russia,” Le Pen told Le Monde daily in an interview.
Le Pen has been a long-standing critic of Europe’s foreign policy and does not see how Ukraine could join the bloc.
“The European Union's diplomacy is a catastrophe,” Le Pen told RT's Sophie Shevardnadze in an exclusive interview in June.

The problems of multinational corporations and their worldwide influence were also highlighted by France’s far-right leader.
“Today the world is in the hands of multinational corporations and large international finance,” Le Pen said.
Immigration “weighs down on wages,” while the minimum wage is now becoming the maximum wage, said Le Pen, adding that now France is “dying of physical, legal and fiscal insecurity.”
Le Pen is a vocal critic of Transatlantic Free Trade Area (TAFTA), also known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), a free trade agreement between the European Union and the United States. France is now in the process of negotiations with the US on the controversial deal.

March of the Hypocrites – and they’ll soon be marching off to war
Without the threat of terrorism, our foreign policy of perpetual war would have zero public support.
by Justin Raimondo Antiwar.com
In Paris they march for “free speech” – and they’ll soon be marching off to war
It was only natural that “world leaders” would place themselves at the head of the Paris “unity” demonstration held to express outrage at the vicious Charlie Hebdomurders. Daniel Wickham, a student at the London School of Economics, compiled a list of the enemies of free speech who elbowed their way to the head of the march.Most hypocritical of all are the French themselves, who have laws against “hate speech” which are only selectively enforced and which have been used against the editors of Charlie Hebdo in the past. This cognitive dissonance was eloquently expressed by one Frenchman who carried a sign saying: “I’m marching but I’m conscious of the confusion and hypocrisy of the situation.”
That politicians would steal the spotlight and turn the sincere outrage of millions into an opportunity for self-advertisement is hardly surprising. Sincerity has its uses, however, and these will become apparent in the days and weeks to come. Those marchers will soon be cheering their soldiers as they go marching off to war, with “Je suis Charlie” inscribed on their banners.

Benghazi branch of central bank seized by Islamic fighters; almost $100B inside
Libyan fighters are sitting on almost $100 billion in oil revenue and foreign currency after seizing control of the Benghazi branch of the country’s central bank
[...] Sadik el-Kabir, the bank’s chairman, has distributed payments to public employees in order to keep the nation’s economy from imploding. He has attempted to play a neutral role among warring factions by financing the Interior and Defense ministries, which provides funds for “thousands of fighters on all sides of the struggle” for power, The Times reported.
“We are the youth of the naval base, and we are here to guard the bank,” a man says in an online video posted after the bank’s seizure, the newspaper reported. The Islamic fighter then points to a bank safe next to a truck and adds, “There is more inside, but we don’t want to enter, so they don’t call us thieves.”
Libya now has two rival governments vying for control of the nation. One faction is based in Tripoli and the other in the cities of Bayda and Tobruk.
