Servants of the US and the reason for their employment: Empire  
ISIL, Kiev’s Nazis, And The Rage Against History
June 01, 2015 by Andrew Korybko. The Saker
20 Comments

The US’ regional proxies in the Mideast and Ukraine are on a rampage against history, doing whatever they can to bury their associated countries’ past so that they can more easily build their version of a ‘utopian’ future. This trend of ‘historical warfare’ is endemic of the militarization of historical memory that the US is rolling out all throughout Eurasia. With ISIL grabbing global headlines over its seizure of Palmyra and the urgent threat this poses to the UNESCO world heritage site there, it’s worthy to revisit how the terrorist group’s anti-historical crusade actually doesn’t differ at all from what the Kievan Nazis are doing in Ukraine, and how all of this destruction connects together with the new type of asymmetrical warfare that the US is practicing across Eurasia.

(Physically) Breaking With The Past

ISIL and the Kievan Nazis are dead-set on eliminating any links to the past that don’t correspond to their radical ideologies of Wahhabism and Fascism, respectively. Here’s a brief overlook at the historical carnage they’ve carried out so far:
ISIL:
CNN reported in April about the sweeping trail of historical destruction that ISIL has left in its wake. Their surprisingly comprehensive listing detailed the damage done to the ancient cities of Nimrud, Khorsabad, and Hatra, as well as the destruction of the Mosul museum (now believed to have been filled with replicas ), the Mosul Library, and Jonah’s Tomb. Still, such examples should only be taken to represent the most large-scale attacks the group has carried out on historical objects, as it’s assured they’ve done much more damage to artifacts of relatively lesser importance or renown.

While some of their stunts were used for propaganda purposes, they don’t detract from the sincerity of the terrorists’ intent in forcefully trying to rewrite history. ISIL’s goal evidently appears to be the elimination of all unifying civilizational symbols that predate the dawn of Islam in order to create the false impression that the lands they currently occupy had no worthwhile history before this period. The group apparently believes that their militancy against historic objects somehow enhances their ‘legitimacy’ and makes them more appealing (and fearful) to others.

Kievan Nazis:
The pro-Western regime in Kiev also partakes in its own share of physical historical revisionism, being known for toppling over 500 Lenin monuments across the country in the past year alone. This violent obsession with Lenin is tragically ironic since the first Soviet leader was the one who actually created modern-day Ukraine, but to a Ukrainian Fascist, he represents nothing more than supposed ‘Russian control’ over the region, and consequently, must be eliminated from sight and mind.

Taking matters further, Kiev has banned communist symbols and even gone as far as changing both the date and manner in which Victory Day is celebrated. The country now enforces a poppy symbol instead of the St. George Ribbon and commemorates the event ( referred to the ‘Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation’) a day before Russia does, in accordance with the Western Europeans. What Kiev is aiming to do, then, is to force a type of distorted ‘historical continuity’ between the Banderites and post-coup Ukraine, selectively eliminating elements of its Soviet-era history that ‘inconveniently’ stand in the way of this myth but not address the documented Soviet creation of modern-day Ukraine.

Manipulating The Future

ISIL and Kiev’s physical attacks on history are directed just as much against the future as they are against the past. The ‘historical lustration’ that both are partaking in is purposed so that their controlled populations reinterpret the past in such a way as to facilitate very specific forthcoming ambitions. By changing history, they change the people’s identity, and with it, the course of their development. Thus, they’re using the tool of historical memory in order to forcefully alter the future trajectory of the territories they administer, no matter how brief their hold on them may be.

The United States and Turkey have signed an agreement to train and equip moderate Syrian opposition
February 20, 2015 aljazeera.com
The agreement states that Ankara will provide an equal number of trainers to work alongside their American military counterparts, a U. official said on Thursday.
The deal with Turkey formalised plans for one of four known sites to be used in a broader programme to train Syrian rebels opposed to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group.
A deal for a facility in Jordan is imminent and locations in Saudi Arabia and Qatar could be ready in a few months, the US official said.
The effort to train and equip Syrian moderates to fight ISIL began to pick up steam after months of planning.
The Pentagon said on Wednesday it had identified some 1,200 Syrian opposition fighters for potential training.
The US-Turkey deal was signed by an undersecretary at the Foreign Ministry and the US ambassador, a Turkish Foreign Ministry official said

Absolute power corrupts absolutely, so they say.
Erdogan is just another power seeker, his "palace" built illegally on public land.
Cameron is no different, just his psychopathy is better hidden imo.
Conditioned tolerance permits these eruptions of the self-interested in leadership positions to prevail.
(It's sad Farage has every appearance of being on their side.)
Much of Turkey is very poor and poorly educated, deep belief in the muslim superstition is ingrained from birth and reinforced 5 times a day.
Erdogan portrays himself as a deep believer with the less deeply religious, more liberated concentrated in developed areas. A few miles outside any city women are not allowed in tea gardens and tea rooms.
The chance for defeat of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) lies in the war against Syria, few in Turkey consider Syrians an enemy and most are appalled at what their president and PM are doing.

Re: ‘He will pay a heavy price’: Erdogan threatens Turkish editor-in-chief for scandalous report
The story in Turkey, then, seems much like the world over. Ordinary people want the same the world over and the same seems true for those who seek power the world over. I am suspicious of anybody who seeks political power and more suspicious of those who gain it, You try telling the truth and running for office and see how far you get. Unless you're supported by the invisible government, for some reason, my guess is you won't get off the starting blocks. Am I becoming a cynic?

Government is always about control. The etymology shows this. Those who desire to control others whether they want to be controlled or not are fundamentally flawed and unfit to govern. This is probably much oversimplified but I think you will get my drift. What does Farage have to offer them?

George Galloway appears to have made it against the odds. He seems consistent. He has been ousted.

I like George the same way as I like Nigel, they are top class performers. George is less than perfect and aside from his political life attracts criticism that he doesn't deal with as well as he does his political stance (did he convert to muslimism?).

If the situation calls for cynicism then be cynical. It doesn't mean you are per se a cynic.

Re: ‘He will pay a heavy price’: Erdogan threatens Turkish editor-in-chief for scandalous report
Ps...Think I may have said this before here but...my idea of the role of government is that those elected should manage necessary projects on behalf of the people of a country. If we pay taxes we should know exactly how they are spent and approve that spending.

People talk of "government money" but the government doesn't have any money; it is our money. How come we never see published how much they take in taxes? How come we never see accounts of how that money is spent? My guess is, aside from wars the people don't want, foreign aid which amount to bribes on behalf of the corporations, much of it is frittered on needless committees, useless appointments to meaningless positions for cronies etc.

I'd like to see total figures that aren't buried in departments and their projects. If they want the power let there be an accounting and accountability ....to the people. And let them ditch private banking and start doing what they are meant to do... Which should be safeguarding our wealth for us.

I can't even stand to look at Cameron much less listen to him. But then I feel that way about most of them.

Re: ‘He will pay a heavy price’: Erdogan threatens Turkish editor-in-chief for scandalous report
The present system has to be completely done away with and a new system created.

A permanent central government is unnecessary. It is now a weapon against us. A target of the zios and their accomplices is to have every (remaining) fit person a government employee with the unable dispatched.

You say "our money." But we give unconditional control of it to them and and allow them to commit descendents' income to present day false debt. Much wants more.

Cameron is a con man. An accomplished operator. When you know that then watching him tell the lies (say his lines) is fascinating.
But as you say, he's far from easy on the eye.

The government isn't as big a problem as the civil service.

"You say "our money." But we give unconditional control of it to them and and allow them to commit descendents' income to present day false debt. Much wants more."

No, I don't think we do give that. I think they assume that. And we don't even give, it is taken from us. If I don't agree with how the money is used, and mostly I don't, I don't have the ability to withhold my taxes because my employer doesn't pay me that money, it is given by my employer to them on my behalf whether I like it or not. I couldn't withhold payment as a protest even if I wanted to. Something ought to be done about that.

I agree the civil service is another big problem. Whether it is a bigger problem or not I would have to consider. But in light of the fact that the rest of society is being told there is no such thing as a permanent job, where people are working on short term and zero hours contracts, the civil service from top to bottom should be on the same conditions as everyone else. They are not and that fact alone buys a lot of loyalty to corruption.

I totally agree the whole system needs to be ditched and replaced with one where control rests with the people.

‘2,300 Humvees in Mosul alone’: Iraq reveals number of US arms falling into ISIS hands
June 01, 2015
Iraq has admitted that ISIS jihadists captured huge caches of US-made weapons, including thousands of Humvees seized from Iraqi forces retreating from Mosul last year. The spoils of war have since then been used by ISIS to gain ground in Iraq and Syria.
“In the collapse of Mosul, we lost a lot of weapons,” Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said in an interview with Iraqiya state TV. “We lost 2,300 Humvees in Mosul alone.”

ISIS fighters cut off Syrian rebel supply lines near Turkey
Islamic State fighters have captured areas of Northern Syria close to a border crossing with Turkey. They seized the town of Soran Azaz and nearby villages from a group of fighters comprising both moderate Western-backed anti-government rebels and Islamists. This advance deals a blow to supply lines used to bring weapons and supplies to the city of Aleppo, the rebel alliance says. “The main supply line between Turkey and Aleppo will be severely affected,” Abu Bakr, an alliance field commander, said in a online message, Reuters reported.

The Globalization of War, America’s “Long War” against Humanity
$14.00, Save 39%
By Prof Michel Chossudovsky Global Research, May 26, 2015
PREFACE
The “globalization of war” is a hegemonic project. Major military and covert intelligence operations are being undertaken simultaneously in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, sub-Saharan Africa, Central Asia and the Far East. The U.S. military agenda combines both major theater operations as well as covert actions geared towards destabilizing sovereign states.
Under a global military agenda, the actions undertaken by the Western military alliance (U.S.-NATO-Israel) in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Palestine, Ukraine, Syria and Iraq are coordinated at the highest levels of the military hierarchy. We are not dealing with piecemeal military and intelligence operations. The July-August 2014 attack on Gaza by Israeli forces was undertaken in close consultation with the United States and NATO. The actions in Ukraine and their timing coincided with the onslaught of the attack on Gaza.
In turn, military undertakings are closely coordinated with a process of economic warfare which consists not only in imposing sanctions on sovereign countries but also in deliberate acts of destabilization of financial and currencies markets, with a view to undermining the enemies’ national economies.
The United States and its allies have launched a military adventure which threatens the future of humanity. As we go to press, U.S. and NATO forces have been deployed in Eastern Europe including Ukraine. U.S. military intervention under a humanitarian mandate is proceeding in sub-Saharan Africa. The U.S. and its allies are threatening China under President Obama’s “Pivot to Asia”.
In turn, military maneuvers are being conducted at Russia’s doorstep which could potentially lead to escalation.
The U.S. airstrikes initiated in September 2014 directed against Iraq and Syria under the pretext of going after the Islamic State are part of a scenario of military escalation extending from North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean to Central and South Asia.
The Western military alliance is in an advanced state of readiness. And so is Russia.
Russia is heralded as the “Aggressor”. U.S.-NATO military confrontation with Russia is contemplated.
Enabling legislation in the U.S. Senate under “The Russian Aggression Prevention Act” (RAPA) has “set the U.S. on a path towards direct military conflict with Russia in Ukraine.”
Any U.S.-Russian war is likely to quickly escalate into a nuclear war, since neither the U.S. nor Russia would be willing to admit defeat, both have many thousands of nuclear weapons ready for instant use, and both rely upon Counterforce military doctrine that tasks their military, in the event of war, to pre-emptively destroy the nuclear forces of the enemy.1
The Russian Aggression Prevention Act (RAPA) is the culmination of more than twenty years of U.S.-NATO war preparations, which consist in the military encirclement of both Russia and China:
From the moment the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the United States has relentlessly pursued a strategy of encircling Russia, just as it has with other perceived enemies like China and Iran. It has brought 12 countries in central Europe, all of them formerly allied with Moscow, into the NATO alliance. U.S. military power is now directly on Russia’s borders.2
Worldwide Militarization
From the outset of the post World War II period to the present, America’s s global military design has been one of world conquest. War and globalization are intricately related. Militarization supports powerful economic interests. America’s “Long War” is geared towards worldwide corporate expansion and the conquest of new economic frontiers.

Holes in the Neocons’ Syria Story
June 01, 2015 By Robert Parry. Global Research, Consortium News
Official Washington’s narrative about Syria’s civil war is that innocent “pro-democracy” protesters were driven to violence because the Syrian government cracked down harshly – and that if only President Barack Obama had armed the protesters and supported “regime change” at the beginning, the current crises in Syria and Iraq could have been averted.
But the storyline was never that black and white. Though there surely were many Syrian protesters in 2011 simply seeking the end of President Bashar al-Assad’s rule and political reform, there were also extremist elements in their ranks from the start, including “Al-Qaeda in Iraq” terrorists, as a Defense Intelligence Agency report describes.
“AQI supported the Syrian opposition from the beginning, both ideologically and through the media,” the DIA wrote in a partially redacted classified report from August 2012 that was released to Judicial Watch in response to a court case over the Benghazi controversy. “AQI declared its opposition of Assad’s government because it considered it a sectarian regime targeting Sunnis.”
In other words, Assad’s early complaint about “terrorists” having infiltrated the opposition wasn’t entirely false, although it was often treated that way by the mainstream U.S. news media. Even early in the disorders in 2011, there were cases of armed elements killing police and soldiers.
Later, there were terrorist bombings targeting senior Syrian government officials, including a July 18, 2012 explosion – deemed a suicide bombing by government officials – that killed Syrian Defense Minister General Dawoud Rajiha and Assef Shawkat, the deputy defense minister and Assad’s brother-in-law.
By then, it had become clear that Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and other Sunni-ruled countries were funneling money and other help to jihadist rebels seeking to oust Assad’s relatively secular regime. Assad is an Alawite, a branch of Shia Islam, but he also drew strong support from Christians, Shiites and other minorities fearing persecution if Sunni extremists prevailed.
As the DIA report noted about Syria,
“internally, events are taking a clear sectarian direction. … The salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria. … The West, Gulf countries, and Turkey support the opposition; while Russia, China, and Iran support the regime.”
The situation has sharpened further since 2012, as Al-Qaeda’s affiliate, the “salafist” Nusra Front, emerged as a dominant element in the rebel force. Another key player – “Al-Qaeda in Iraq” – was Al-Qaeda’s hyper-violent affiliate that arose in resistance to the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq and later rebranded itself the “Islamic State of Iraq and Syria” or simply the “Islamic State.”

The common denominator amongst the terrorists is cash, more means greater manpower. Empire cash via the CIA, Saudi and Qatar and from Israeli, Turkish and Western interests buying the plunder (oil,artifacts) and from drugs and ransoms paid.
Russia should give the Syrian gov a big cash bung so they can buy off many of those damaging Syria and turn them against their terrorist patrons and their providers.

We're just oiks in the eyes of the orchestrators. To be honest, I can see their point of view. Cameron probably split his sides laughing at the demo against his minority supported harmful to the UK and humanity dictatorship. "Is that it?"

Anti-Semitism in Europe:
The Causal Factor Being the Conversion of “Jewish Victims” into “Israeli Perpetrators”
By Anthony Bellchambers. Global Research, May 29, 2015
The brutal shooting at point blank range of nine, unarmed Turkish activists on board the MV Mavi Marmara a humanitarian aid vessel, in international waters, by a thuggish squad of heavily armed Israeli commandos, is the recurrent leitmotif theme of the extremist, right-wing Likud Party that believes it can kill at will, anywhere, with impunity.
Eventually, the Israeli government was forced to apologise for the murders and pay compensation to those families involved. The damage caused to Israel was incalculable. Turkey broke off all relations with the Israeli state and anti-Semitism rose sharply throughout the world.
Prior to that shameful episode of murder on the high seas, former defence and prime minister, the huge Ariel Sharon, had bestrode the Middle East with a killer instinct that manifested itself in his documented complicity in the massacre at the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in which troops under his control murdered some thousands of civilians. Anti-Semitism rose sharply in response.
Then, in subsequent years, came the so-called ‘operations’ by the IDF against militants in Gaza as reprisals for rocket attacks by Hezbollah extremists. Again, thousands of Palestinian civilians were killed indiscriminately by blood-thirsty troops intent on causing maximum damage to the civilian population and infrastructure. The world watched and was horrified. Anti-Semitism spiked throughout Europe.
As for the premiership of now convicted criminal, Ehud Olmert – the less said the better. Suffice to say that members of the Israel Defence Force are brainwashed to view all Arabs as inferior beings who should be oppressed in accordance with Likud Zionist dogma. In fact, Theodor Herzl, the founder of the Zionist Movement, believed in the equality of man but the Likud Party has deliberately distorted his ideals in its quest for regional domination.
Netanyahu himself remains undisturbed for it means an increasing exodus of European Jews – with, of course, their assets – to his own state. This unconcern for the safety of European Jewry is astonishing. The Israeli state continues with its policy of killing indigenous Palestinians, ad infinitum, with not a thought of the long- term, criminal implications for both the state of Israel and the Jewish Diaspora that is still home to the majority of Jews, today, and from which the entire population of Israel itself, originated.
The perverted conversion of ‘Jewish victims’ into ‘Israeli perpetrators’ is anathema to European society which is the primary reason that anti-Semitism has increased so alarmingly throughout Europe and beyond. Tragically, it is a genie that cannot now be put back in the bottle – and Netanyahu, his predecessors and collaborators are the ones ultimately responsible. The detriment to Jewish communities worldwide is enormous.

Norwegian authorities have revealed that several Middle East refugees set to be granted asylum in Norway under a UN program have links to the Islamic State and Nusra Front extremist groups, media reported on Monday.
"Unfortunately, there are people who try to exploit and abuse the refugee system. We have uncovered some quota refugees with links to the Nusra Front and the ISIL," police superintendent Svein Erik Molstad said, as quoted by the Dagbladet newspaper.
During two trips to the Middle East, Norway's PST police intelligence unit discovered up to 10 Norway-bound refugees were members of the militant groups. The findings were discovered during background checks conducted by the agency.

Canada’s Devolution: From Peace Seeker to War Crimes
By Robert Snefjella. Global Research, June 01, 2015
“For in lapse of time men are constrained to see things they would not willingly suffer.” [1]
Canada’s recent international role includes being a serial participant in US-NATO wars of aggression – which at Nuremberg was deemed the greatest crime. Organized mass murder of people and the destruction of their infrastructure, not as an act of self defense; blowing babies to bloody bits, reducing homes to rubble, this is the stuff of ‘wars of aggression’.
The typical contemporary template for perpetrating wars of aggression is to demonize the victims, and to justify, even sanctify, the perpetrator. And it is not unknown in the modern era, progress being what it is, to explain to the victims that it was a beneficent act to conquer them, occupy them, plunder them, murder them, wound them, destroy their country.
The aggressor usually has a large military advantage, and in the modern context, destroying the designated victim may feature banal distant mechanical and electronic acts, push a button, turn a dial, the perpetrators remote and safe.
That many Canadians do not understand, or are in denial about, Canada’s crimes is testimony to the effectiveness of modern mass media’s ‘public perception management’. Pretty hard for busy people, including many people who work in the media and academia and the military and in politics, to find their way to the real, subjected as they are to a dizzying disinformation maze: a litany of lies and distortions and distractions called ‘news’, either presented with accomplished feigned sincerity, or in ignorance with real sincerity. It all gets very confusing, even for the most gifted manipulators. Rigorous censorship is practiced under the rubric of a free press, and endless trivia contaminate just about everyone. [2]
A diabolical aspect of the formal disinformation system is the provision of a wide range of pretend-to-be-honest ‘alternative’ media outlets. [3]
Then add to the disinformation system the seemingly systematic corruption of high profile regulatory agencies [4] and corporate- linked science, and a vast number of NGO’s that pretend to be serving some ideal, and the entire global public is enveloped in a rather overwhelmingly bewildering complex of disinformation. Our collective capacity for coherent policy, for intelligent cohesive societal decision, is just about nil. And this all comes just at the moment in human history – the nuclear age – when the best we have to offer would be our only chance of success.
But back to our story: On the other hand, some do understand that Canada has gone criminally militaristic. And most of those remain silent. Some are governed by fear, some don’t care, some embrace evil; some who do speak concoct bizarre justifications.
But Canada cannot escape ‘karmic justice’ for its international crimes. Shameful militarism elsewhere has inevitable insidious impact at home: You can’t endorse or commit mass murder of innocents based on lies without being a monster, or becoming one.
