Bust the London-Riyadh Global Terror Axis  
[Nearly 2 years old but still very relevant.]
-------------
by an EIR Investigative Team
[PDF version of this article]

Aug. 13—If another major terrorist attack like the Sept. 11, 2001 hits on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, or the Sept. 11, 2012 armed assault on the Benghazi, Libya U.S. Mission occurs, you can blame it on George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and the British and Saudi monarchies. The wellspring of all significant international terrorism today is the Anglo-Saudi imperial alliance, expressed most vividly in the 1985 Al-Yamamah arrangements between London and Riyadh that persist to this day.
Al-Yamamah ("The Dove") was ostensibly an arms-for-oil barter deal, first brokered by then-Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the United States, Prince Bandar bin-Sultan, and then-British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Under the cover of the arms-for-crude-oil deal, over the succeeding 28 years, hundreds of billions of dollars in cash have been squirreled into offshore bank accounts in such notorious havens as the British and Dutch Caribbean Islands, Switzerland, and Dubai.
Those funds have bankrolled nearly 30 years of global terrorism and coups d'état, dating back to late-1970s British and American sponsorship of the Afghan "mujahideen" which spawned al-Qaeda and every other Muslim Brotherhood offshoot now imposing a reign of terror across the entire Islamic world, and into Africa, Europe, and the Americas.
Beginning in the mid-1980s, Al-Yamamah slush funds bankrolled the Afghan "resistance," separatist wars in Africa, and the 1990s conflicts in the Balkans following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact. An honest and thorough investigation—yet to be accomplished—would all-but-certainly reveal that Al-Yamamah funds bankrolled the 9/11 terrorists.
The existence of an Anglo-Saudi top-down command over al-Qaeda and every other jihadist front group is well known within some circles at the highest levels of the U.S. government—dating back decades. But the successive Bush (41 and 43) and Obama administrations have presided over a brutal coverup of this Anglo-Saudi treachery, making them complicit before, during, and after the fact, in terrorist atrocities that have claimed tens of thousands of lives globally, and provided the pretext for every police-state tyranny that has been wrought on the United States over the past dozen years.
The single most glaring case of coverup of the Anglo-Saudi terror is the refusal of the George W. Bush and Obama administrations to release the 28-page chapter from the final report of the Joint Congressional Inquiry probing the 9/11 attacks, which catalogued the roles of the Saudi Ministry of Defense and Aviation, Saudi Arabia's General Intelligence Directorate (GID), and then-Saudi Ambassador to the United States, Prince Bandar bin-Sultan, in the financing and protection of teams of 9/11 hijackers (see accompanying documentation).
Had Presidents George W. Bush or Barack Obama released those 28-pages, and allowed a thorough investigation into the role of British and Saudi intelligence in the September 2001 attacks, it is quite possible that Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the other American diplomats and security officers who were killed or injured in the 2012 attacks on the Benghazi Mission and CIA Annex, would still be alive today. Thousands of others, killed or injured in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Libya, Syria, Mali, and other frontline battlegrounds, too, might have avoided their fate. And the enormous buildup of the Big Brother espionage state that has now finally been partially exposed by the Edward Snowden, IRS, and other recent revelations, could never have been allowed or justified.
In addition, as the result of the failure to expose and wipe out the Anglo-Saudi authorship, funding, and protection of the global jihadist- and narco-terrorist nexus, the so-called "Global War on Terrorism" has been turned into one of the biggest criminal hoaxes in modern history.
Virginia Republican Rep. Frank Wolf has gathered the signatures of more than 160 House Republicans demanding the creation of a Congressional Select Committee to probe the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks on the American facilities in Benghazi, Libya. The Obama White House is desperate to block any such investigation. In tandem with the release of the buried 28 pages from the earlier Congressional Joint Inquiry into the original 9/11 attacks, such a Benghazi inquiry could unearth the actual roots of the two greatest terror atrocities against the United States since the British sacking of Washington and the burning of the White House in the War of 1812.
An Open Secret
The suppression of those 28-pages has been repeatedly cited by former Sen. Bob Graham (D-Fla.), Lyndon LaRouche, authors Anthony Summers, Robbyn Swan, and others, as the crucial element in a far-broader coverup of the roots of modern irregular warfare and terrorism.
Much of the evidence of the deeper oligarchical roots of global irregular warfare is hidden in plain sight.
In December 2000, the editors of EIR submitted a memorandum to then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, calling for a formal investigation to determine whether Great Britain should be put on the State Department's list of state sponsors of terrorism. The EIR document was based exclusively on formal complaints and evidence submitted by governments from every continent, all detailing the fact that Great Britain had provided safe haven and logistical support to terrorist organizations, including the Chechen separatists (Russia), the narco-terrorist FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia), Sendero Luminoso (Peru), the Kurdish Workers Party (Turkey), Gamma al-Islamiya (Egypt), Ansar al-Sharia (Yemen), the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (Libya), and the Islamic Guerilla Army (Algeria).
The EIR memorandum named Osama bin Laden, who, at the time, was maintaining a home in Wembley, England, and operated a propaganda office in London under the protection of the British Crown, as a subject for investigation.
In 2007, EIR published exclusive evidence about the true nature of the Al-Yamamah-BAE Systems project and the offshore terror funds. Among the evidence presented by EIR was material drawn from a semi-official biography of Prince Bandar, which detailed the offshore sequestration of Al-Yamamah profits and their use to arm the Afghan mujahideen, African governments, and other agencies engaged in "the fight against communism." Prince Bandar boasted in that book that the Al-Yamamah deal was a product of the unique relationship that existed between the British and Saudi monarchies, which allowed for the build-up of a massive "black fund" with no governmental oversight.
That EIR exposé included details, provided in public locations by Senator Graham and others, detailing some of the evidence of the Saudi official funding of 9/11.
When the investigations into the BAE-Saudi program threatened to blow up the Anglo-Saudi controlling hand over al-Qaeda and other jihadist terror, British Prime Minister Tony Blair ordered the Attorney General to shut down the probe on "national security grounds." To this day, Al-Yamamah barter deals between BAE and the Saudi Defense Ministry continue to feed the offshore terror slush funds.
In 2010, Ian Johnson wrote a book-length account of the British and American intelligence services' long-running sponsorship of the Muslim Brotherhood, A Mosque in Munich, which catalogued the 1960s emergence of the Muslim World League as the international recruitment arm of the Saudi-funded global jihadist terror. The Johnson account demonstrated that the Anglo-Saudi intelligence "special arrangements" predated Al-Yamamah by decades.
Also in 2010, British researcher Mark Curtis wrote another book-length account, Secret Affairs—Britain's Collusion With Radical Islam, based largely on declassified British Foreign and Commonwealth Office and MI6 documents, showing that the British Crown intelligence service has been the sponsor and controlling force behind the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood and all of its even more violent offshoots, dating back to the organization's founding in the British-occupied Suez Canal Zone in Egypt in the 1920s.
The History Commons, a little-known but important online archive (www.historycommons.org), has assembled over 20,000 news entries—all from public sources—detailing the Anglo-Saudi links to the 9/11 hijackers and other brutal acts of mass terror. It is an open secret, frequently publicized in the British media, that "Londonistan" is the capital of global jihadist terrorism. Despite the EIR effort in late 2000 to shut down the British Crown's transparent alliance with Saudi Arabia in sponsoring worldwide terrorism and separatist insurgency (Chechnya, Kurdistan, Kashmir, etc.), London remains the protector and recruitment hub for terrorism on every continent to this day.
The issue before us is not the availability of evidence. The issue is that leading government circles in Washington, London, and Riyadh are committed to covering up the Anglo-Saudi responsibility for 9/11, Benghazi, and other atrocities. Until and unless that coverup is broken, no one is immune from attack. The fact that two successive American Presidents—George W. Bush and Barack Obama—have put their personal imprimatur on the coverup of the British and Saudi monarchies' role in funding and orchestrating terrorism is grounds for prosecution and impeachment.
Anglo-Saudi 'Thirty Years War'
The British alliance with Saudi Arabia to promote global terrorism and genocide has been a dominant policy for more than 30 years. Back in the mid-1970s, Dr. Bernard Lewis, a leading British intelligence "Orientalist," called for an "Arc of Crisis" extending across the southern tier of the Soviet Union, from the Caucasus to Central Asia and into Western China's Xinjiang Province. Lewis called for Western intelligence sponsorship of an Islamic fundamentalist jihad against the "Godless communist monolith."The "Bernard Lewis Plan," as it came to be known, gridded precisely with the official policy of the British monarchy to reduce the world population to below 1 billion people, through war, disease, and famine. Lewis was dispatched to the United States in the mid-1970s, where he sold the British new Thirty Years War scheme to such prominent American national security figures as Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski, Dick Cheney, Michael Ledeen, Richard Perle, and the entire coterie of neoconservatives who would come to populate two Bush administrations.
In effect, the "Bernard Lewis Plan," promoted by the British Crown and adopted by the Carter, Reagan, and Bush administrations, fostered a Thirty Years War that rages to this day. Starting in Afghanistan, London and Riyadh, with the complicity of dupes and traitors in Washington, created a global "dark age" legion of fanatical suicide fighters, who have gone from Afghanistan to Iraq, Syria, Libya, and beyond.
The sponsorship of this "new dark age" project is a top-down affair. The policy of the British monarchy is vast population reduction. They have a witting ally in Saudi Arabia, despite the fact that some of the very jihadist forces unleashed with London sponsorship and Saudi funding will ultimately bring down the Saudi monarchy itself.
Senior U.S. intelligence sources have confirmed that the "new" British policy for the entire Islamic world is the promotion of a permanent sectarian conflict between Sunni and Shi'a, exploiting a 1,000-year-old split within Islam, with the goal of mass genocide.
One of the most important British assets in this global genocide scheme is Prince Bandar. Trained in Britain, Bandar was not only the Saudi interlocutor with the British Crown and BAE in forging the original Al Yamamah deal. As Saudi Ambassador in Washington (and as practically an adopted son of George H.W. Bush), Bandar presided over the Saudi intelligence officers who shepherded the 9/11 hijackers for a year, leading up to the September 2001 attacks. His wife, Princess Haifa, provided cover for Bandar's direct financing of at least one team of the hijackers.
Today, Bandar is in an even more prominent position, as national security advisor to King Abdullah, and as head of the Saudi GID intelligence service. It is Bandar who is behind the deployment of thousands of "dark age" suicide fighters into Syria and Lebanon, to guarantee that the Sunni versus Shi'ite conflict reaches a critical mass of killing and hatred to last a century.
Bandar, however, is a foolish pawn in a much bigger game, a game controlled from London, not Riyadh. That oligarchical game is one of divide-and-conquer. Ultimately, it is a game of mass population reduction on a scale never before seen in history.
It is that British policy that must be stopped. The suppressed 28 pages from the Congressional Joint Inquiry are the crucial entry point for exposing the true nature of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and all that followed. Open that door and the entire Anglo-Saudi war against civilization can be exposed. From Bandar to BAE to the British Crown, the true masterminds of the heinous crime of 9/11 can be revealed. Those in the United States who have been complicit in the coverup of that crime can and must, as well, be brought to justice—including those currently occupying the highest office in the land.

Bush and Obama Joined at the Hip in Shameless Coverup of Anglo-Saudi 9/11 HTML PDF
Despite clear evidence of Saudi and British sponsorship of the 9/11 attacks, the Bush-Cheney Administration launched war against two nations which had only peripheral involvement (Afghanistan), or no involvement at all (Iraq), and suppressed the evidence of the British-Saudi role in 9/11; Obama has continued the coverup.

Bill To Disclose the 28 Pages To be Introduced in U.S. Senate
May 28, 2015 (EIRNS) — The website 28pages.org announced today that Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) will introduce a Senate resolution, the Transparency for the Families of 9/11 Victims Act, to declassify and publicly disclose the 28 pages from the December 2002 Joint Intelligence Committee Report which concern a finding on foreign government support of the 9/11 hijackers. Sen. Paul’s office said that Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) will co-sponsor the resolution, and that the resolution is a companion to the existing House Resolution 14, which asks that the President declassify the 28 pages.
The announcement further says that Paul will make his resolution public at an outdoor Capitol Hill press conference on Tuesday, June 2, at 10:00 A.M., joined by Representatives Walter Jones (R-N.C.), Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.), Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), and former Democratic Senator Bob Graham of Florida. Jones, Lynch, and Massie introduced H.Res. 14, and Graham, who was co-chair of the joint investigation which issued the original reports, has aided them in securing support in the Senate. 28pages.org points to eleven Senators who are logical co-sponsors of the bill, as they were signators on a 2003 letter to President George W. Bush protesting his decision to redact the 28 pages and urging him to release them: Patrick Leahy (Vt.), Barbara Mikulski (Md.), Harry Reid (Nev.), Barbara Boxer (Calif.), Patty Murray (Wash.), Dick Durbin (Ill.), Jack Reed (R.I.), Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), Bill Nelson (Fla.), Tom Carper (Del.), and Maria Cantwell (Wash.).

Debate on ‘Who Started the Libyan War’ Rages in Italy
April 22, 2015 (EIRNS)— While a decision is expected by the emergency meeting of EU government leaders on April 23 (the first one since 9/11), the recent refugee tragedy is spurring a debate in Italy on:
What to do immediately?
What to do in the long-term?
Who is responsible for the mess in Africa?
Hardly anyone objects to the assertion that a standard of rescue operations must be re-established, which should at least be equal to the Mare Nostrum operation. Mare Nostrum allowed Italian ships to save human lives regardless of whether they were in international, Italian, or Libyan territorial waters. Mare Nostrum cost EU9 million per month, entirely financed by Italy. Triton has been funded with EU3 million per month.
The Renzi government is also pushing the "go and destroy" policy, i.e., sink the smugglers’ boats, which on one side won’t prevent smugglers from getting vessels elsewhere, and at the same time runs the risk of producing collateral damage to innocent people.
The real issue is how to eliminate the two roots of African emigration: war and poverty. On one hand, the Libyan state must be rebuilt, and on the other side, capital must be invested to develop those countries. Nothing on this can be expected from the EU, as it would mean getting rid of British geopolitics, challenging London and Obama and the financial markets.
However, there is a lot of resentment in Italy against the Anglo-French coalition that initiated the Libyan war, and the Obama administration which has backed it. Everybody knows that Washington is currently backing the pro-terrorist factions in Tripoli and thereby making any political solution impossible.
A preferred target of attacks is former French President Nicholas Sarkozy, "who had the gall to inform his allies that he had given the order to attack, after his bombers had taken off," as the weekly Panorama writes.
"Does anyone remember Sarkozy, Cameron and Erdogan’s triumphant speeches in 2011 in Benghazi?" asks Il Sole 24 Ore strategist Alberto Negri.
And the conservative daily Il Foglio even calls for "Bringing Sarko la Racaille to the UN Court," using the term "racaille"—vermin, riffraff—that then Interior Minister Sarkozy used to characterize the immigrants who rioted in the French suburban slums, the banlieues.
In Great Britain, UKIP MEP Nigel Farage issued a scathing attack on Cameron and Sarkozy, as reported by the Daily Telegraph, which asked whether a "stronger Europe" wouldn’t help solve the problem. He shot back,
"It was the European response that caused this problem in the first place. The fanaticism of Sarkozy and Cameron to bomb Libya. They have completely destabilized Libya, to turn it into a country with much savagery, to turn it into a place where for Christians the place is now virtually impossible. We ought to be honest and say we have directly caused this problem."

DIA Documents Make ‘Official’ What EIR and Others Knew on 9/12/12
May 22, 2015 (EIRNS)—The just-released Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) report from Sept. 12, 2012, identifying the al-Qaeda front that carried out the premeditated assault on the U.S. mission and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya, the day before, has made "official" what was known by EIR and others at the time: President Obama lied to the American people and to Congress about a "spontaneous" attack and a "protest" against an internet video slandering the Prophet Mohammed, knowing full well that the assault was a pre-planned action by al-Qaeda fronts headquartered in the Derna, Libya area near Benghazi. Derna was a well-known hotbed of al-Qaeda recruitment for suicide bombings and other terrorist acts.
On the morning of Sept. 12, 2012, EIR received an "unofficial" briefing from a longstanding U.S. government contact, detailing the armed assault on the U.S. mission and annex, naming Ansar al-Sharia as the main group involved in the planned and heavily-armed action. Contemporaneous records of that conversation exist, and they conformed to much of the detail in the recently declassified DIA report.
On Sept. 28, a senior Pentagon source confirmed to EIR that "the Obama White House received a detailed warning of a pending attack in advance of the Sept. 11, 2012 assault on the Benghazi consulate." According to the source, "Both the Defense Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency provided detailed warnings to both the President and the CIA that there were attacks being planned against American targets in Benghazi."
Author Edward Klein, in his book Blood Feud, recounted that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received a real-time account of the Benghazi attacks from U.S. diplomat Gregory Hicks, who was Ambassador Chris Stevens’ top deputy at the Tripoli Embassy. Hicks provided the same narrative of a pre-meditated attack, with no mention of protest demonstrations or the slanderous video. Yet, according to the Klein account, President Obama personally called Clinton at 10 p.m. on Sept. 11, 2012 and ordered her to issue a press release citing the protests and the video, and making no mention of the al-Qaeda links or the pre-planned nature of the precision attacks.

You Can’t Always Get What NATO Wants
29.05.2015 Pepe Escobar
The meat of the matter in the by now legendary May 12 meeting in the Kremlin between President Putin and US Secretary of State John Kerry is that, after a relentless torrent of US demonization of Russia, a deal – of sorts – may have been reached. Needless to add, no official source, in either Washington or Moscow, will confirm it.
The United States Capitol, the meeting place of the US Congress in Washington, DC The Capitol's foundation stone was laid by George Washington on September 18, 1793
Geopolitical imperatives lead us to think that Kerry – a de facto mere messenger of the real Masters of the Universe in the Beltway — asked Putin for “help” in the former, American-launched “Greater Middle East”, and to facilitate the clinching of the possibly imminent P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran.
And Putin told Kerry that was a deal as long as the hysteria over Ukraine was immediately defused.
There is no hard evidence – yet – that Washington is prepared to finally admit, even tangentially, to its monumental geopolitical bungling in Ukraine; the lightning-fast deepening of the Russia-China strategic partnership is just one of the key consequences. End of sanctions would be a first fact on the (Eurasian) ground.
Instead, for the moment we have the usual NATO warmongering —remixed.
"He’s a Gambler"!
NATO General Reveals Alliance's Biggest Concern About 'Gambler' Putin
General Hans-Lothar Domröse, NATO Commander of the Brunssum Allied Joint Force Command, is convinced Russia is a “threat”; Putin is a “dangerous gambler”; and Russians “consider it possible to use tactical nuclear weapons as a way of waging a war. We [NATO] – do not.”
Herr General is, of course, lying – on both counts (that Moscow wants to use nuclear weapons, and that NATO wouldn’t). At least he was forced to admit NATO does not view Russia as an enemy, but as a potential “threat”.

Kiev May Start Using Chemical Weapons - Donetsk Republic
29.05.2015
According to Donetsk People’s Republic official, a team of chemical experts from US arrived to help build chemical weapons in Ukraine.
With assistance of biotechnology experts from the United States, Ukrainian army is getting ready to produce chemical weapons to use against the Donbass militia, said Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) military spokesman Eduard Basurin.
"DPR intelligence informed about the development of chemical weapons on the territory of Ukraine. It was found out that the work is being conducted in chlorine storage in the village of Kochetivka, Ukraine's Kharkiv Oblast. The development [of chlorine] is carried out with the help of US military experts," Basurin said.
A week ago, 20 trucks brought five tons of "unknown poisonous substance." After the Ukrainian army obtains the results it needs, it will start organizing sabotage actions in Donbass trying to accuse DPR militia of using chemical weapons, the DPR leader said.
Basurin added that in mid-May all personnel from the chlorine storage was laid off and the building is now being guarded by Ukraine's armed forces. Furthermore, a group of US chemical experts arrived into the region.
Azov battalion students dispatched to southeastern Ukraine
Last month, Basurin said that Kiev formed a special unit of more than 300 fighters who pose as Russian soldiers to carry out sabotage mission on the territory of Donbass. He also added that these soldiers were trained by NATO instructors.

ZH: Good Luck Getting Your Money Out
Submitted by Phoenix Capital Research on 05/30/2015
Going forward it will be more and more difficult to get your money out of the financial system.
The reason for this concerns the actual structure of the financial system. As I’ve outlined previously, that structure is as follows:
1) The total currency (actual cash in the form of bills and coins) in the US financial system is a little over $1.36 trillion.
2) When you include digital money sitting in short-term accounts and long-term accounts then you’re talking about roughly $10 trillion in “money” in the financial system.
3) In contrast, the money in the US stock market (equity shares in publicly traded companies) is over $20 trillion in size.
4) The US bond market (money that has been lent to corporations, municipal Governments, State Governments, and the Federal Government) is almost twice this at $38 trillion.
5) Total Credit Market Instruments (mortgages, collateralized debt obligations, junk bonds, commercial paper and other digitally-based “money” that is based on debt) is even larger $58.7 trillion.
6) Unregulated over the counter derivatives traded between the big banks and corporations is north of $220 trillion.
When looking over these data points, the first thing that jumps out at the viewer is that the vast bulk of “money” in the system is in the form of digital loans or credit (non-physical debt).
Put another way, actual physical money or cash (as in bills or coins you can hold in your hand) comprises less than 1% of the “money” in the financial system. Suffice to say, one of the biggest concerns for the Federal Reserve is what would happen if a significant percentage of investors decided to move into physical cash.
Indeed, this is precisely what happened in 2008 when depositors attempted to pull $500 billion out of money market funds.

Just days after David Cameron's "I promise a referendum" victory in the British elections, which JPMorgan warns now looks likely to happen as early as 2016, France's far-right National Front party has called for an in/out referendum on the EU at the same time as the UK holds its vote. As EUObserver reports, Florian Philippot, an MEP and the party’s deputy head wrote to French President Francois Hollande this week, "the time has come to ask everybody in Europe Yes or No - if they want sovereignty to decide on their own future."

Saker: How the Ukrainian crisis will eventually bring down the AngloZionist Empire
[...] My main point is not that the USSR and USA are the exact same, but only that the similarities between the two are becoming uncanny and numerous.
In conclusion and to put things simply: what the AngloZionist are openly and publicly defending in the Ukraine is the polar opposite of what they are supposed to stand for. That is an extremely dangerous thing to do for any regime and the AngloZionist Empire is no exception to that rule. Empire often crumble when their own people become disillusioned and disgusted with massive discrepancy between what the ruling elites say and what they do and as a result, it is not so much that the Empire is faced with formidable enemies as it is the fact that nobody is willing to stand up – nevermind die – in defense of it. Just look at the following sentence:
(in the Ukraine) “Barack Obama and the Democratic Party stand for racism and Fascism”
Amazing, no? But it is true, even though this short sentence has enough tensions inside it to explode the brain of many Americans, especially Democrats. I put the “in the Ukraine” in brackets to provide the context but, of course, the context does not matter one bit. You cannot be for liberal policies at home and for Fascism abroad. Nor can you be an anti-racist who supports racism, it don’t matter one bit were that racism is located. Values truly held are applicable to all and everywhere. You cannot oppose torture in country ‘x’ but favor it in country ‘y’. That is plain ridiculous. So let me restate the sentence above this time without the context in brackets:
“Barack Obama and the Democratic Party stand for racism and Fascism”
Blows your mind, doesn’t it?
And, of course, the very same can be said of McCain and his party:
“John McCain and the Republican Party stand for racism and Fascism”
Still painful, no?
How about this one:
“The EU stands for racism and Fascism”
Or, even better:
“The ADL and the Weisenthal Center stand for racism and Fascism”
Or this one:
“Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch stand for racism and Fascism”
Pretty amazing, no?
Now try combining any of the above with this one:
“Putin and Russia stand for democracy, freedom and human rights”
Ouch! That one would really hurt a lot of American and Europeans.
Of course, this is not how the events in the Ukraine, or any other event, is presented in the official public media and the zombified public discourse. But neither was that the case in the USSR. Still, not all people are stupidified zombies – though some, of course, are – and they do their own, quiet, little thinking in their own heads. Sometimes they toss ideas around with their friends. In the Soviet Union the “Petri dish” for politically incorrect discussion was usually the kitchen. In the USA it might be near the barbecue.

ZH: Mapping An ISIS Advance: Syria On The Brink
Recently, calls for US ‘boots on the ground’ in Syria have gotten louder after ISIS captured a UNESCO World Heritage site in Syria, overran Ramadi in Iraq, and took credit for a suicide bombing in a Saudi mosque.
The US is now reportedly looking at its options including sending so-called “spotters” to Iraq who will help to make US airstrikes more effective and meanwhile, uber hawks like Senator John McCain (who has himself had a bit of trouble shaking rumors that he was once photographed with the same ISIS forces he now wants to annihilate) saying that as many as 10,000 US troops are necessary to turn the tide. From Bloomberg:
Arizona Republican Senator John McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, speaks during panel discussion at regional security summit in Singapore.
Islamic State is winning in Iraq, Syria: McCain
Air strikes without foreign troops on the ground providing real time targeting information aren’t effective: McCain.
McCain says he blames President Barack Obama’s decision to withdraw troops from Iraq for emergence of Islamic State.
Here’s a bit of color from Stratfor on the current situation on the ground:
Last week, the Islamic State seized the ancient city of Palmyra from Syrian President Bashar al Assad's forces. The city's capture adds to the many defeats Damascus has suffered over the past six months, compounding its problems as it faces threats on multiple fronts.
The Islamic State's victory in Palmyra is notable for two reasons. First, it has completely isolated loyalist forces in Deir el-Zour province, including the 137th Mechanized Brigade and the elite 104th Republican Brigade. Second, Palmyra's location — a critical crossroads in the center of Syria — gives the Islamic State a strategic base from which it can launch attacks on key locations in the surrounding area.
The Islamic State's maneuvers in Homs province, where Palmyra is located, denote a shift in its strategy in Syria. Previously, the Islamic State fought against the People's Protection Units in Kobani and al-Hasaka while maintaining its positions in Aleppo province.
Earlier in the conflict, Damascus removed its forces from Homs province and deployed them against the growing rebel threat of Jaish al-Fateh in Idlib province. The redeployment, which transferred the elite Tiger Forces and Desert Falcons away from the Islamic State's area of operations, will now be seen as a mistake. The elite forces have been unable to halt rebel advances in Idlib, and their departure from Homs has left the government highly vulnerable on its eastern flank.
The Islamic State now threatens the Syrian government's core territory, which stretches from Damascus to Aleppo. It is likely that the government will try to take the fight to Islamic State forces stationed in Palmyra, if not to recapture the city then to pin the group down in a single location and keep it from spreading to other strongholds. Either way, any action al Assad takes in response to the Islamic State's success in Homs will expose Damascus on other fronts.
Here are the visuals... [maps]
Indeed it appears as though President Bashar al-Assad is well on his way to losing control. We'll close with what we said last week:
As you can see, there are now plenty of excuses to put boots on the ground first in Iraq, and then in Syria. Put simply: if there was ever an opportune time to play the ISIS card on the way to ousting Assad and securing a route for Qatari natural gas to flow to Europe thus breaking Gazprom (and Putin’s) stranglehold, this is surely it.

The militants stole $10.85 million from the Islamic State treasury, according to Fars news agency, citing local sources. Their whereabouts are unknown.
Government forces launched an offensive against IS militants in the northern Syrian province, which is reportedly gaining momentum.

It isn't every day that we have the privilege of a president on the show. And this is no ordinary president, but the president of a land whose people have been ethnically cleansed from their territory to make way for a US war-base, and on which the torture of kidnapped people from around the world appears to have taken place. It is of course, Diego Garcia part of the Chagos islands.

The West Has Sucked $3.5 Trillion out of BRICs Over 10 Years - Top Russian Spy
Moscow is convinced the West is abusing its control of international financial institutions to try to show BRICS who is boss
RI Staff May 29
May 25-26th the fifth meeting of high-ranking security officials from BRICS was held in Moscow.
The Russian host Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev had this assement to share with his counterparts from Brazil, India, China and South Africa:
“The West has increasingly been using international financial institutions as an instrument of pressure.
“Overall capital outflows from the BRICS economies have amounted to at least $3.5 trillion in the past ten years.
“Capital outflows in the past three years account for over one half of this.”
The figure seems immense until you consider China alone holds more than $2 trillion in US dollar-denominated “assets” – mainly US bonds of increasingly dubious value.
Further on Petrushev warned that aside from financial pressure BRICS should be on guard against Western information war and particularly the attempts to use internal divisions to try to destabilize member states:
“The tendency of the past five years indicates that information pressure and attempts to artificially fuel national, religious and cultural disagreements will primarily be used to deter our countries.”
Petrushev was certain the new BRICS Development Bank would help maintain BRICS economic security and thus enhance the stability of its members.
