LEAKED EVIDENCE: Sen. John McCain Involved In Major Islamic Conspiracy To Establish Islamic State
Walid Shoebat
Recently revealed conversations between the Pentagon and the Gadhafi regime in 2011 show that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was serving the Muslim Brotherhood by pushing a false narrative to justify the removal of Muammar Gadhafi, as Shoebat.com has reported. With the help of corroborating evidence, we're closer to proving that Republican Senator John McCain was likely just as invested in facilitating the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya as Hillary was. Before getting to the evidence that implicates McCain, let's work backward from the Benghazi attacks.
Any discussion about what happened in Benghazi on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks usually includes the topic of weapons shipments to Syrian rebels via Turkey. According to a book written by a former Navy SEAL and Green Beret, the man who would eventually become CIA Director oversaw that operation from the White House:
(Deputy National Security Advisor) John Brennan also ran a highly compartmentalized program out of the White House in regard to weapons transfers, and Stevens would not have been trusted with that type of information. Stevens likely helped consolidate as many weapons as possible after the war to safeguard them, at which point Brennan exported them overseas to start another conflict.
According to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) report completed last August and then released the Friday before Thanksgiving, the mission in Benghazi didn't involve physically collecting and shipping weapons to Syria but the CIA clearly knew who was. As Shoebat.com reported, this amounted to a distinction without a difference:
From the Annex in Benghazi, the CIA was collecting intelligence about foreign entities that were themselves collecting weapons in Libya and facilitating their passage to Syria. The Benghazi Annex was not itself collecting weapons.
One thing that can be certain is that after the removal of Muammar Gadhafi in 2011, weapons in Libya were being rounded up and shipped to Syria's rebels. These logistics constitute transitioning from the end of one operation – regime change in Libya – and the beginning of another – regime change in Syria.
Thanks to an explosive three-part series published by the Washington Times, replete with substantiated audio recordings, readers get to see how the weapons got into Libya in the first place and who supported it.

LEAKED AUDIO RECORDINGS Reveal Hillary Clinton is a Muslim Brotherhood Agent Who Helped Muslim Brotherhood Take Control of North Africa and Middle East
By on February 3, 2015 in Benghazi Select Committee, Featured, General
According to a three-part series published by the Washington Times, it was Hillary Clinton who was insisting that the U.S. remove Libya’s Muammar Gadhafi in 2011 while pushing false narratives to do so. These reports have allegedly caught the attention of the House Select Committee on Benghazi. What must be included in this analysis is just how influential Clinton’s most trusted adviser Huma Abedin was and is. If anyone had a vested interest in removing Gadhafi from power to benefit Libya’s Muslim Brotherhood rebels, it was Huma’s Muslim Brotherhood family.
To illustrate how close Huma and Hillary were, it was Abedin who first informed her boss of Gadhafi’s death.
The timeline of events as they unfolded in Libya starts in early 2011. By July of that year, the positions of the State Department, led by Hillary at the time, were apparently so ridiculous that someone from the Pentagon went to the Gadhafi regime to tell them so. Using lies to justify regime change in Libya reflected a very pro-Muslim Brotherhood stance.
On June 23rd of that year, Hillary was in Jamaica and publicly weighed in on the side she was taking: [Audio mp3 (30s) opens in a new window]
The first Washington Times installment opens thusly:
"Top Pentagon officials and a senior Democrat in Congress so distrusted Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s 2011 march to war in Libya that they opened their own diplomatic channels with the Gadhafi regime in an effort to halt the escalating crisis, according to secret audio recordings recovered from Tripoli.
The tapes, reviewed by The Washington Times and authenticated by the participants, chronicle U.S. officials’ unfiltered conversations with Col. Moammar Gadhafi’s son and a top Libyan leader, including criticisms that Mrs. Clinton had developed tunnel vision and led the U.S. into an unnecessary war without adequately weighing the intelligence community’s concerns.
You should see these internal State Department reports that are produced in the State Department that go out to the Congress. They’re just full of stupid, stupid facts,” an American intermediary specifically dispatched by the Joint Chiefs of Staff told the Gadhafi regime in July 2011, saying the State Department was controlling what intelligence would be reported to U.S. officials
."
One month earlier – as Weinergate 1.0 became the focus of conservative media – it was Shoebat.com that was busy revealing Abedin’s irrefutable familial ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. At the time, Shoebat.com published the shocking list of 63 Muslim Sisterhood leaders; Abedin’s mother Saleha Abedin was on the list.
Try as we might, the media was more interested in Weinergate, which involved lewd photos of Huma’s husband, sitting U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner being widely distributed on social media. It was Andrew Breitbart who was front and center after having broken the scandal. At one point, just prior to Weiner’s scheduled press conference in response to the allegations, Breitbart made news when he took to the podium first:

@Ireland_is_us: Function of Govt. now is to do the admin for corporations & bankers. Sadly democracy is an illusion.

Small and large wars are started by deception within and by regimes like the US, UK and EU and of the public due to complicit media editors and owners maintaining the deception. All the evil being done in the Ukraine by the freemason - khazar jew - fascist junta and its neo nazi armed forces is blamed on Russia and in particulr Putin. Major wars are started to create an enormous profit making environment where banksters (e.g. central, IMF), weapons manufacturers and globalist corp'ns (e.g. Monsanto)  back both sides. There are almost always multiple actual reasons for a war. The basis is always expansion of the area of influence of royalty, elite, zionists and corp'ns. Immediate (war loans, weapons sales, physical gold and currency, not forgetting body parts and kids) and ongoing plunder (gas, oil, minerals and via IMF loans) run a close second. Political  reasons may be in the mix, the successful and popular Libyan system (participatory democracy) was a threat, and the plan to sell oil for gold and establish an African central bank with a gold backed African currency was a threat to the private fiat currency and political system operated in the West.
From what I've seen, the likely driving force behind the rush for WWIII by the Western regimes is not just the collapsing currency ponzi threatened by the BRICS central bank and international exchange system there are also the vast natural resources of Russia (both available and coming, waiting for the big Arctic thaw that will never happen, not least due to a nuclear winter).
And the strategic objective, to surround China.

John Brennan: Obama’s Muslim Convert Stooge for Jihad
Written by: Tim Brown September 16, 2014
In March 2013, America swore in John Brennan as its new Central Intelligence Agency Director not on the Bible, but a copy of the Constitution without the Bill of Rights. This occurred after he received the most “No” votes for confirmation in history! There’s more to this than mere symbolism. A month prior to his swearing in, Brennan was outed by former FBI Islam expert, Marine and combat veteran John Guandolo as a convert to Islam. His conversion took place years ago in Saudi Arabia.
In an interview with WND in February 2013, Guandolo said, “Mr. Brennan did convert to Islam when he served in an official capacity on the behalf of the United States in Saudi Arabia.
But it’s worse than a mere conversion to Islam. Guandolo expounded, “That fact alone is not what is most disturbing. His conversion to Islam was the culmination of a counterintelligence operation against him to recruit him. The fact that foreign intelligence service operatives recruited Mr. Brennan when he was in a very sensitive and senior U.S. government position in a foreign country means that he either a traitor … [or] he has the inability to discern and understand how to walk in those kinds of environments, which makes him completely unfit to the be the director of Central Intelligence.”
When asked by WND’s Tom Trento if Guandolo was sure Brennan is a Muslim, Guandolo responded, “Yes I am. The facts of the matter are confirmed by U.S. government officials who were also in Saudi Arabia at the time that John Brennan was serving there and have direct knowledge. These are men who work in very trusted positions, they were direct witnesses to his growing relationship with the individuals who worked for the Saudi government and others and they witnessed his conversion to Islam.”
Guandolo went on to assert several things with regard to Brennan. His life was interwoven with individuals that were labeled as terrorists. This occurred both in his private and professional life. He has spoken positively of Islam and at times, jihad. He has even blamed jihad on “injustices, economics and ignorance,” but never mentioning that it is the result of Islamic teachings.

EU Increasingly Abandons Obama on Ukraine?
By Eric Zuesse
Global Research, March 08, 2015
As reported on Saturday March 7th by both German Economic News, and Spiegel magazine, the ongoing lies and arrogance from U.S. President Barack Obama’s Administration regarding Ukraine and Russia have finally raised to the surface a long-mounting anger of Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel and her Government.
This is especially the case with Germany’s Foreign Minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who comes from Germany’s Social Democratic Party, which is far less conservative (and far less anti-Russian) than the Christian Democratic Union Party, Chancellor Merkel’s party. The CDU has traditionally been hostile toward Russia, but the SDP has instead favored an unprejudiced policy regarding Russia, after the breakup of the Soviet Union and the end of communism there.
Steinmeier has always been skeptical of Obama’s intentions regarding Ukraine and Russia, but now it appears that even Merkel is veering away from the United States on these policies.
“Resistance to the US strategy toward Russia is growing in the EU,” reports GDN, which names especially U.S. General Philip Breedlove, NATO’s Supreme Commander, as the major source of this turn-about, because Breedlove has “exaggerated the military role of Russia in Ukraine.”
Spiegel provides the details on Breedlove, but especially blames Victoria Nuland, the Obama official who actually ran the February 2014 coup in Ukraine and who selected the person who would steer the new, post-coup, Ukrainian Government in the ways that President Obama wants.

Russia-EU alliance
It's going to be hard for the traitors in the media to do an about face. Not so hard for politicians who are well versed in responses to being caught out lying.

An alliance with Russia would have interesting consequences for the UK as RU is well aware that the US policy is dictated via the London Sq Mile, Rothschild country. I'm sure there is more than one warhead with LSM's co-ordinates programmed in.
Another reason to get out of Bilderberg's (Pilgrims) EU political system. No matter which traitor party gets in, no way the puppet politicians will be allowed to party with a Russia-EU alliance.
Putin advised the aggressor US that RU has over a thousand nuke war heads. Sufficient to take out all US foreign bases including Israel and Saudi as well as turn the US into barren land.

US Sponsored Death and Destruction in East Ukraine:
All Buildings in Debaltseve Destroyed by the Occupying Ukrainian Army
By Eric Zuesse
Global Research, March 06, 2015
According to the head of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Ukraine, no usable buildings survive in the town of Debaltseve, the crucial railroad junction that was long fought over between the occupying Ukrainian army and the town’s residents.
The OSCE official, Michael Bociurkiw, said on Wednesday March 4th, “The violence must be stopped, as it is developing into a real disaster in some areas. As for Debaltseve, for example, our representatives have said that there was no house left that was not destroyed or damaged by shelling.”
Delbatseve is in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR). Following are photos from videos, of the final weeks of the Ukrainian army’s occupation elsewhere in DPR:

Remember that Cameron "I invaded Libya" (has he ever been there?) is part of what is going down in Ukraine. His and his cronies' support for Nuland's fascist junta is disgraceful.

Zionism Is Still Bleeding Around the World
Zionism Is Still Bleeding Around the World
By Jonas E. Alexis on March 7,
"Everything you need to know about Benjamin Netanyahu's address to Congress Tuesday was the presence in the visitor's gallery of [Sheldon Adelson]. We are hostage to his fortune…"
More good news. Zionists in Israel and America have come to realize that Netanyahu wounded the Zionist project and has done a nut job, and those Zionists are not happy about that.
“Tens of thousands of Israelis are gathering at a Tel Aviv square under the banner ‘Israel wants change’ and calling for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be replaced in March 17 national elections. The rally’s keynote speaker is former Mossad chief Meir Dagan who recently slammed Netanyahu’s conduct and called him ‘the person who has caused the greatest strategic damage to Israel.'”
Dagan did not hide his opinions while he was watching Netanyahu’s speech.
Dagan told Channel 2 that Netanyahu’s assessment with respect to Iran was complete “bullshit.”[1] Dagan went further to say that not only Iran does not pose a threat to the United States, but “Iranian missiles will never be able to hit the United States.”[2] The Jerusalem Post has recently reported,
“When Netanyahu remarked that Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, ‘spews the oldest hatred of anti-Semitism with the newest technology,’ Dagan shook his head…
“The former Mossad chief said that Netanyahu’s appearance before Congress was ‘a political speech that caused diplomatic and defense damage to Israel.’”
This is not the end. The Time of Israel declared last month that “Netanyahu closed the door on peace talks.”

Tabloids in the UK claim to have footage of the Chancellor’s top economic adviser smoking crack. They look at the economic policies this man may have been pushing and at how they cause effects very similar to those of crack cocaine.
In the second half, Max interviews Professor Richard Werner, who, in the early 1990s, coined the phrase ‘quantitative easing.’ Together they take a look at the monster which QE has become.

Iraq Arrests ISIL’s US, Israeli Military Advisors in Mosul
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iraqi Special Forces said they have arrested several ISIL’s foreign military advisors, including American, Israeli and Arab nationals in an operation in Mosul in the Northern parts of the country.
The Iraqi forces said they have retrieved four foreign passports, including those that belonged to American and Israeli nationals and one that belonged to the national of a Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) member-state, from ISIL’s military advisors.
The foreign advisors were arrested in a military operation in Tal Abta desert near Mosul city.
Last year, a senior aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin accused Mossad of training ISIL terrorists operating in Iraq and Syria.
Alexander Prokhanov said that Mossad is also likely to have transferred some of its spying experiences to the ISIL leadership, adding that Israel’s military advisors could be assisting the Takfiri terrorists.
Prokhanov said ISIL is a byproduct of US policies in the Middle East.
ISIL is a tool at the hands of the United States. They tell the Europeans that if we (the Americans) do not intervene, ISIL will cause you harm,” he said, adding that Iran and Russia are the prime targets of the ISIL.
“They launched their first terror attack against us just a few days back in Chechnya,” he said, stressing that the ISIL ideology has got nothing to do with the Islam practiced in Iran and some other Muslim countries in the Middle East region.
Prokhanov said the United States and Israel are one and the same when it comes to supporting a terror organization like the ISIL.

Marc, the following are sources which demonstrate that ISIS is DIRECTLY a tool of the US/NATO:
To say that there is something strange about ISIS is perhaps the understatement of all time. Can we call them “The Not Very Islamic State?” What they seem to have is friends, people who give them intelligence help, satellite photos, people who train them to operate complex American weapons, people who shepherd their personnel around like diplomats. What they also have are business partners, partners who are clearly above the law. Who has that kind of influence?
First appeared: http://journal-neo.org/2014/12/31/something-strange-about-isis/
“The Redirection: Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?” by Seymour Hersch is the first source to disclose US intentions back in 2007.

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article40347.htm Germany’s international broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) published a video report of immense implications – possibly the first national broadcaster in the West to admit that the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS) is supplied not by “black market oil” or “hostage ransoms” but billions of dollars worth of supplies carried into Syria across NATO member Turkey’s borders via hundreds of trucks a day.
The report titled, “‘IS’ supply channels through Turkey,” confirms what has been reported by geopolitical analysts since at least as early as 2011 – that NATO member Turkey has allowed a torrent in supplies, fighters, and weapons to cross its borders unopposed to resupply ISIS positions inside of Syria. [It’s not so conclusive. 18-wheelers come from “Western Turkey” and freely cross the border into Turkey. The airport is there, so Cartalucci assumes these are NATO cargos.] There is a long pause in the middle of the video which you must wait thru; it’s not over.

1. The CIA funnels much of its drug-trade through ISIL. 90% of North Americas dope is from Afghanistan. The local warlords do not have the means for that level of penetration: it’s clearly systematic. Ever wonder what the US really wanted there? It doesn’t have oil.
2. The SWIFT system contains algorithms which launder the traffic., probably through select NSA cells: Ever wonder why that Russian Jew got jailed for posting improved open source code back on the net? Or what the FBI was doing investigating ‘intellectual property theft’ for Goldman Sachs?
Or why the Russian IT specialist was also arrested on espionage charges? Or why Russia was threatened with exclusion from the SWIFT system?
3. Ever think it strange the ‘leader’ of ISIL was actually professional actor? Or the level of online accounts – at least 50,000 – would require system access not usually found in a war situation, much less a ‘spontaneous’ uprising across large regional spaces? The Ukrainian domain was much more localised and yet had a far more intermittent and chaotic online presence characteristic of destabilization.

The Future of the Middle East
3 March 2015 By Thierry Meyssan
For several months, Barack Obama has been trying to change US policy in the Middle East in order to eliminate the Islamic Emirate with the help of Syria. But he cannot do this, partly because he has been saying for years that President Assad must go, and secondly because his regional allies support the Islamic Emirate against Syria. However, things are slowly evolving so he should be able to do so soon. Thus, it appears that all States that supported the Islamic Emirate have ceased to do so, opening the way for a redistribution of the cards.
The Future of the Middle East
The world awaits the conclusion of a comprehensive agreement between Washington and Tehran -under the ridiculous pretext of ending a military nuclear program that has not existed since the end of the war waged by Iraq (1980-1988). It would focus on the protection of Israel in exchange for recognition of Iranian influence in the Middle East and Africa.
However, this should only take effect after the Israeli elections of March 17, 2015. The supposed defeat of Netanyahu would renew ties between Washington and Tel Aviv and facilitate agreement with Tehran.
In this context, the US elite are trying to agree on future policy, while the European allies of the United States are preparing to align with what will be the new US policy.
The search for consensus in the US
After two years of inconsistent policy, Washington is trying to develop a consensus on what should be its policy in the "extended Middle East".
- 1. On October 22, 2014, the Rand Corporation, main think tank of the military-industrial lobby, dramatically changed its position. After campaigning for the destruction of the Syrian Arab Republic, it said that now, the worst thing that can happen to the United States and Israel is the fall of President Assad. [1]
- 2. On January 14, 2015, Leslie Gleb, the president emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations, the club of the US elite, warned against divisions of the Obama administration that threaten its authority in the world. He advocated a kind of new "Baker-Hamilton Commission" to review foreign policy top to bottom. [2]
- 3. On January 24, the New York Times published an editorial supporting the new direction of the Rand Corporation and calling for a complete policy change vis-à-vis Syria [3].
- 4. On February 6, the Obama administration published its new strategic doctrine. It would no longer guarantee Israel’s security by destroying Syria but by creating a regional military alliance with zionist Muslim monarchies. At most, the Islamic Emirate ("Daesh") could be used to prevent Syria from holding its head high and replaying a regional political role. [4]
- 5. On February 10, the National Security Network (NSN), a bipartisan think tank that tries to explain geopolitics in the United States, published a report on all the possible options regarding the Islamic Emirate. It reviewed forty expert opinions and concluded the need to "contain and destroy" the Islamic Emirate first by relying on Iraq, then Syria’s Bashar el Assad. NSN was founded by Rand Beers, a former adviser to John Kerry, today Secretary of Homeland Security. [5]
- 6. On February 11, the Obama administration introduced to Congress a request to use military force against the Islamic Emirate which relegated to oblivion the idea to overthrow President Assad and destroy Syria [6].
- 7. On 23 February, the new Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter, brought together experts for a working dinner. He took their advice for 5 hours without revealing his own point of view. Mr. Carter intended to investigate for himself the work of the CSN. Among his guests were not only former US ambassador to Syria, Robert S. Ford, and oldies think tanks, but Clare Lockhart, known for her links with the world of finance; as well as the president of the Columbia School of Journalism, Steve Coll, to assess possible media reactions. [7]

80% of Conscripts Fail to Mobilize in Odessa
Russian Insider
Not a lot of enthusiasm for Poroshenko's Anti-Terror Operation
Via Timer (translation by RI's Alina Belyanina):
Less than one-fifth of the planned number of potential soldiers were mobilized by recruitment offices and sent to serve in the army, military offices inform on condition of anonymity in unofficial conversations.
In addition to direct failure of mobilization, many potential recruits are being "cut off" at the stage of medical examination (which may be caused by recruits being deemed unfit for military service, or by corruption). However, those fit for military service and enter the ranks of the armed forces, as a result, do not linger there for a long time.
"There are cases when the commanders simply reject some fighters, including volunteers, because they create more problems than benefit. They drink, violate discipline and create demoralizing effect on other normal fighters. It is easier to turn them back than to mess with them."
Mobilization in the Odessa area will last for another two months, but the military enlistment staff already think that it is impossible to reach their target to call about four thousand people from the region.

Iraqi Army Arrives at Tikrit Gate
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iraqi army backed by popular forces marched all the way to Tikrit in Salahuddin province and are now standing at the gates of the city, media reports said.
After one week of heavy fighting with ISIL terrorists, the Iraqi forces have now opened their path into Tikrit, Al-Araqieh news website reported on Monday morning.
The Iraqi army also continued its advances in the two towns of al-Alam and al-Dour near Tikrit in Salahuddin province, and claimed the lives of dozens of the terrorists in there.
"We are trying to surround ISIL inside al-Alam and al-Dour and cut all supply routes for them," al-Alam mayor Laith al-Jubouri said on Sunday.
Army and militia fighters entered the Southern and Eastern parts of al-Dour on Friday.
According to reports on Saturday, the Iraqi soldiers inflicted hefty losses on the ISIL terrorists in the village of Kuwaishat in Fallujah, as the army continued its huge offensive towards Tikrit.
The ISIL terrorists escaped the village and left their weapons and vehicles behind.
Thousands of government troops, Shiite and Sunni popular forces have started a major offensive in the Iraqi city of Samarra to oust the ISIL terrorists from the strategic province of Salahuddin, which includes the ancient city of Tikrit.

Tikrit Operation: US Playing the Sectarian Card
TEHRAN (FNA)- General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, says he is confident Iraq will defeat the “Sunni militants” in Tikrit, northwest of Baghdad.
The top US military officer also says he will press Baghdad to avoid sectarian fallout once the Iranian-backed operation to dislodge ISIL from the city concludes. First things first:
1. The death cult’s members are Salafi and Takfiri militants - not Sunni militants. ISIL, which has purportedly tied the knots with al-Qaeda in Arabian Peninsula and Boko Haram in Nigeria, believes they have monopoly over Islam and that 1.5 billion Shia-Sunni Muslims are all apostates. Their medieval butchery campaign is to be understood in these terms.
2. The Iraqi army and allied Sunni-Shia irregular troops, backed by Iranian military advisors, training, aircraft, drones, heavy artillery, surveillance and intelligence will soon retake Tikrit. They have already liberated other towns. The ongoing offensive, although complex, is a cakewalk.
3. It is the United States and its coalition that have ripped open old wounds to revive bitter divisions, both real and imagined, between Sunni and Shia. From their tribal stronghold of Riyadh, the Saudis have always used sectarianism as an excuse to send troops to Bahrain to prevent the very unrest they are fomenting. Iraq is in the know. That’s why the US and its coalition are not part of the Tikrit operation. These liberators are bad news for any community. Any doubters should ask Libya.
4. General Dempsey is right to suggest the operation is more about what follows. But he is wrong to claim it is less about how the military aspect of it goes. Trying to recapture Tikrit first makes sense. It is one of the biggest cities held by ISIL. The liberation will shorten the supply line between Baghdad and Mosul - with a much closer jumping-off point for going to Mosul.
5. The operation is not just about Iraq though. It’s also about Syria. Once fully liberated, Iraq will pave way for liberation of Syria. The Pentagon officials are way out of line to suggest the ongoing progress has no strategic importance.
6. What follows is important too. Lest there be any doubt, once liberated, the local population will be allowed to continue to live its life the way it wants to, and can come back to their homes. What follows the Tikrit operation is this: Reconstruction, good governance, inclusivity and political partnership.
Despite the grim assessments - tall concrete barriers placed at various entry points along with booby traps, car bombs, human shields, and mortar/artillery positions to make it difficult to advance - the Iraqis will win the battle of “One Big IED”. They will also dislodge the Salafi-Takfiri militants with minimum casualties.
The Pentagon officials and military experts have entered a period of particular gloom and isolation. They can only sit and watch because they are no longer secure in their positions. Their argument that there will be wide-scale ethnic cleansing is complete rubbish.
Iran’s military advisors and Iraq’s armed forces have no time to waste in Tikrit and Mosul. After re-establishing the sovereign borders of Iraq, they will go for the big fish: Liberation of Syria and re-establishment of political sovereignty, inclusivity and partnership within those borders - without US involvement. After all, this is their surge

Ukraine: Russia's and Europe's Mexico
Ukraine's migration stream to Russia is exceeded only by Mexico's migration stream to the United States - but this just the beginning of Ukraine's demographic woes
This article originally appeared at Joshvanhee.blogspot.com
Unknown to most of us, the two largest migration streams in the world are the ones involving Mexico to USA, and Ukraine to Russia. Ever since 1991, Ukrainians have been migrating north and east to Russia in numbers that so far did not approach the 3.5 million Mexicans that choose the USA. Yet Ukraine is set to break this unenviable record as its crisis also affects a demographic collapse and sees migration waves to the EU and to Russia measured in millions.
Ukraine's chronic lack of adequate governance spiked two revolutions, one of which should be called a coup based on more than circumstantial evidence. During the last 25 years, Ukraine has lost 7 million people to emigration and a rising death rate - the highest one in Europe. Going from a nation of 50 million to 43 million, by itself already a staggering decrease of close to 15%, the situation becomes more drastic when we look at the demographic implications of the 2014-2015 crisis.
Maidan and its haste to chase and enforce a mono-thematic Ukrainian identity resulted in a demonization of Russians, and with it a significant part of the country's population. Two million Crimeans left Ukraine to gladly embrace the Russian Federation, a decision which seemed possibly rash and organized by Russia at the start, but which has since been vindicated: current, 2015 European polls validate the percentages of the original Crimean referendum. However one turns the pages on the events in Eastern Ukraine, it is hard to see Donetsk and Lugansk as an integral part of Ukraine in the near, never mind distant future. This means that another 3-4 million people - possibly up to 7 million if the remaining areas in these provinces join the rebel areas - want a lot less Ukraine, and a lot more Russia.
Yet the demographic debacle does not stop there. Russian Statistics reported that as of mid January 2015, as much as 2.2 million Ukrainians are now seeking refuge in Russia. While Russian media sarcastically pointed this out as a 'Ukrainian invasion', the fact is that many of these refugees are fleeing for multiple reasons, only one of which is the conflict in the East. Repeated Ukrainian attempts at conscription - with ever widening age criteria - has led to huge numbers of draft dodgers that are also flooding the Russia border. The crash of the Ukrainian currency - a process that appears far from having touched rock bottom - is making Ukrainian bankruptcy an active verb covering many months, rather than a sudden and mere momentary state of affairs. The Ukrainian Parliament's final approval of IMF criteria came early March 2015, but its implications are still to hit pensioners, government workers, businesses and families.

Russia to Lease Bomber Jets to Argentina. Deal Spooks UK
Russia Insider
Russia replaced EU food imports with those from Argentina. It will partly pay for them by leasing a squadron of Su-24 attack aircraft
Marco Giannangeli (Daily Express)
The aircraft, which Moscow will swap for beef and wheat, would be able to mount air patrols over Port Stanley.
Ministry of Defence officials fear Buenos Aires would take delivery of the planes well before the deployment in 2020 of the Navy’s 65,000-tonne aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth and its F-35B fighters, leaving a “real window of vulnerability”.
Defence cuts have left the Falklands with just four RAF Typhoon fighters, Rapier surface-to-air missiles and fewer than 1,200 troops, supported by a naval warship that visits throughout the year.
President Putin’s visit to Argentina in July laid the groundwork for exchanging Russian military hardware for wheat, beef and other goods Moscow needs due to EU food embargoes.
The deal involves a lease/lend of 12 Sukhoi Su-24 supersonic, all-weather attack aircraft.
They are ageing but Nato still regards what it codenames “Fencers” as “super-fighters”, with their 2,000-mile range and laser-guided missiles.

Syria in Last 24 Hours: Army Preparing for Operations to Purge Al-Nusra Terrorists from Idlib
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian army is preparing for massive operations to purge the Idlib province of Al-Nusra Takfiri terrorist group.
The Al-Nusra Front lost nearly two dozen senior commanders in Idlib in the Syrian army's latest military operations.
On Friday, commander of the al-Nusra Front Abu Hammam al-Shami and 18 others senior commanders were killed as an explosion targeted their meeting at one of the group's sites in Syria's Idlib.
Abu Mosaab al-Falastini, Abu Omar al-Kurdi, Abu Baraa al-Ansari and Mohammad Abdol Salam al-Lobnani were some of the killed commanders in the Syrian air force's attack on the group's meeting.
Also Abu Mohammad al-Joulani was injured in the airstrike.
Abu Hammam al-Shami was the most important commander of Al-Nusra Front since the establishment of the terrorist group in 2012. He was trained in Afghanistan as an Al-Qaeda member and was one of the terrorists who conducted the terrorist attacks against the US on September 11, 2001.
Also in the past 24 hours, the Syrian army edged closer to the armed groups' hideouts in the countryside of Idlib, claiming the lives of scores of Takfiri militants.
The army troops raided the strongholds of the rebels in the areas of al-Badria, al-Tibat, Majdoulia, Helouz, Saraqib, al-Suda, wathfah, Mraeian and Abu al- duhur in Idlib countryside, killing and injuring large groups of them.
Also, the insurgents sustained a heavy toll in the areas of Tal Ashhib and Tal Asfar in the Northeastern countryside of Sweida, as the army made more headway in the province.
The Syrian army pressed ahead with operations against the foreign-supplied armed groups in the countryside of Quneitra and Aleppo, inflicting heavy casualties on Takfiri militants.
The army troops stormed the hideouts of the rebels in the areas of Hamidieh, Um Batneh, Mas’hara, Mumtanna, Kom al-Basha and Nabe’a al-Sakhr in Quneitra, killing and injuring a large number of them.
Also, the rebels suffered major losses in the areas of Karm al-Tarrad, Handarat, al-Mallah, Hreitan, al-Shqeif, and Madafeh, as the army made gains in its fight against the insurgents.
Meantime, the Al-Anfal armed brigade broke away from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants and joined the ranks of the Syrian National Defense forces in Southern Damascus.
Informed sources said that the gunmen, whose number were put to 65, split with their full military equipment, which included medium and light weapons, and surrendered to the Syrian authorities after breaking away from the FSA.
Also, unidentified gunmen killed at least 12 terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group in the Eastern Syrian town of al-Mayadin in an overnight attack in an area near the Iraqi border controlled by ISIL, a monitoring group said.
Gunmen on at least two motor bikes first opened fire on an ISIL patrol before attacking ISIL Takfiri militants guarding a nearby courthouse, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
A second group of gunmen meanwhile attacked an ISIL checkpoint in the same town, killing and injuring an unknown number of the ISIL terrorists, the Observatory reported.
Al-Mayadin is in the province of Deir Ezzur which is located about 60 km (40 miles) from the border with Iraq.
Three girls who ran away from their London homes are now believed to be in the city of Raqqa, a city in Northern Syria that serves as ISIL’s headquarters.
Authorities long suspected they were headed to Syria to join ISIL. Now it seems they arrived.
Shamima Begum and Amira Abase, both 15, and 16-year-old and Kadiza Sultana boarded a Turkish Airlines flight to Istanbul on February 17.
British and Turkish intelligence services searched for the girls and looked into their phone communications and social media accounts suspecting they were in contact with other women who had made the trip earlier.
The British broadcaster SkyTV News announced that sources say the girls are staying in a house in Raqqa.
"They're now apparently in a house that is owned or controlled — or at least hosted by — a British girl who had been in contact with them through the internet, and had brought them through Turkey and into Syria," a SkyTV News host declared.

Obama training, arming and funding an alleged 9/11 terrorist?

Barack Obama’s choice: to kill or not to kill US-born ‘terrorist’ hiding in Pakistan
28 February 2014
[...] Where that review stands now is unclear. But The New York Times now reports that the man in question goes by the name of Abdullah al-Shami, or “Abdullah the Syrian”, and that he consolidated his prominence in the network by marrying the daughter of one its top leaders.
American intelligence believes he helps run the planning of al-Qa’ida attacks overseas. Crucially, however, it would appear he is American by birth, although he was taken out of the US as a young boy by his parents and raised somewhere in the Middle East. “We have clear and convincing evidence that he’s involved in the production and distribution of IEDs,” one senior administration official told The Times, referring to improvised explosive devices, which have proved particularly deadly to Americans deployed in Afghanistan.

Prime suspect says Nemtsov killed over 'negative comments on Muslims' – report
March 09, 2015
Zaur Dadaev, who had reportedly confessed involvement in Nemtsov’s murder, said he organized the crime in revenge for the opposition leader’s “negative comments on Muslims and Islam,” according to Rosbalt’s source in law enforcement.
Dadaev is one of five suspects arrested in connection with the politician’s assassination. The judge Natalia Mushnikova said on Sunday that Dadaev confessed his involvement in the crime to the investigators. The accused didn’t comment on this during the court session.
The Rosbalt news agency claims its source in the law enforcement knows exactly what Dadaev said during interrogation.
http://rt.com/news/238945-nemtsov-murder-motive-islam/

But all she got is the real sentiment of the Russian opposition that knows exactly what game the US is playing, and some insider information about the lady companion of the victim that night of his assassination.

NEWS FROM THE U.K.
By Lady Khamis
David ‘Sham’ Cameron has been welcoming the terrorist John Kerry in London this week – and getting his orders from the U.S.
And so now the British regime has announced that another 30 million pounds of British money is to go to Syria to help the terrorist rebels – and aid them in continuing their campaign of killing, brutality and suffering against the poor people of Syria. A plot that was planned some years ago by the U.S., France and ‘israel’.
There have also been meetings in London this week with the ‘Friends of Syria’ group – (known to all sane people as the Enemies of Syria group)…
The busy child killer ‘Sham’ Cameron has also been sitting on the British TV sofa this week prattling on about helping those Nigerian schoolgirls – and who was in the U.K. sitting right next to him on this sofa? None other than Christiane Amanpour! Well, what a surprise! Another false flag operation by the western terror regimes using Boko Haram – who the Nigerian government are completely complicit with in their attacks in Nigeria – so that the F.U.K.U.S. (France, U.K., U.S.) can continue and expand their subversion and covert occupation of Africa – with the help of the Nigerian regime which does not do a thing without its Western masters say so.
And the deluded British public thinks how wonderful their leaders are for all these apparent kind deeds…Bloody hell! They will not be mentioning any of these poor young girls that are disappearing off the streets of Libya to go to NATO’s rebels as sex slaves.

German Intelligence: US NATO Commander Is Hallucinating, No Russians in Ukraine The German press re
This article originally appeared at Ron Paul Institute
What happens when a close friend starts acting so bizarrely that you need to gently extract yourself from his ravings lest you be tarred with the same brush -- or worse? That is the position in which Germany is increasingly finding itself, as the US government's strange pronouncements about Ukraine are getting too much to bear. The German establishment magazine Der Spiegel has just published a very important article, "Breedlove's Bellicosity: Berlin Alarmed by Aggressive NATO Stance on Ukraine," that lifts the lid on what official Germany really thinks about the US neocon push to war with Russia over Ukraine.
Der Spiegel starts by recalling an event last Wednesday. It was a time when the "Minsk II" ceasefire agreement had produced relative calm throughout eastern Ukraine. The weaponry was being withdrawn and an encouraging, if imperfect, ceasefire was holding. The deal, brokered personally by the German, French, Russian, and Ukrainian leadership, was producing results. Yet on that very day, NATO's Supreme Allied Commander for Europe (SACEUR), the American General Philip Breedlove, was spinning a completely different yarn.
As the magazine reports:
"On that same day, General Philip Breedlove, the top NATO commander in Europe, stepped before the press in Washington. Putin, the 59-year-old said, had once again 'upped the ante' in eastern Ukraine -- with 'well over a thousand combat vehicles, Russian combat forces, some of their most sophisticated air defense, battalions of artillery' having been sent to the Donbass. 'What is clear,' Breedlove said, 'is that right now, it is not getting better. It is getting worse every day.'"
To the Germans -- senior partners in NATO -- Breedlove was making it up. The German foreign intelligence agency, Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND), simply "did not share the view" of the top NATO Commander, reported the magazine.
German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier was so alarmed, reports the article, that he found it necessary recently to bring up Breedlove's comments with the US General's boss, NATO General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg
As Germany expends plenty of political capital seeking a political solution to the conflict in Ukraine, the US government — through "super-hawks" like General Breedlove — is actively seeking to undermine all European efforts.

Why Is the West Spoiling for a Fight with Russia?
A conflict over Ukraine would be catastrophic, so why is the west bent on provoking it?
This article originally appeared at The Tyee
What are the consequences when elected governments make policy based on faith and imperial hubris instead of science and expertise? It's a question that is forcing itself on the world as we watch the United States, Britain, NATO and the Harper government continue to up the ante in the confrontation with Russia over the Ukraine. There are real enough geo-political dangers in the world without actually creating them out of arrogance and ignorance but that is where we are right now and the consequences could be catastrophic.
Canada, Britain, the U.S. and the boys with their toys in NATO headquarters are looking for a fight with Russia. Throughout the confrontation and provocations these protagonists treat Russia as if it is some insignificant middle power that can be provoked with impunity. That is just dangerously stupid and stupidity is something the West can ill-afford given all its internal problems -- economic stagnation, unsustainable inequality, collapsing infrastructure.
It is almost a truism that most politicians are, if not stupid, then woefully uninformed about the myriad of complex issues they have to deal with on a daily basis. Traditionally (going back millennia), it has been the job of the civil services to make them look smarter than they are -- and they do that by rooting public policy in science and history. It is the job of professionals to bring to bear all the facts, nuances and consequences of policy initiatives. This is especially true of foreign policy and the nuanced determination of the national interest.
As I watch the Ukraine/Russia disaster unfold I am reminded of George W. Bush's approach to formulating foreign policy. It was revealed in an article by Ronald Suskind in the New York Times magazine in April 2005. It was titled "Faith, Certainty and the Presidency of George W. Bush" and in it, Suskind quoted an unnamed aide to George W. Bush (later revealed to be the sinister Karl Rove). He wrote:
"The aide said that guys like me were 'in what we call the reality-based community,' which he defined as people who 'believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.' ... 'That's not the way the world really works anymore,' he continued. 'We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality... we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors... and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.'"
They did, of course, create their own reality -- the hideous Iraq war and all that followed from it including, now, the crazed and spreading "discernible reality" of ISIS. Rove's madness is a chilling description of the anti-intellectual roots of U.S. policy-making, which continues under Obama.
