'Unanswered MH17 questions need criminal investigation' — RT Op-Edge
The Dutch Safety Board has reiterated it is not within the remit of the investigation to apportion blame, emphasized international security expert, Charles Shoebridge.
Shoebridge said: "It is important to remember, as it was reiterated by the chairman [Tjibbe Joustra, the Dutch Safety Board] in his speech over and over again, that it is not within the remits of this investigation to apportion blame. Therefore, its investigation has halted, in its judgment anyway, that it has found the technical causes of the incident, and also sufficient information gathered to make further recommendations to prevent this kind instances happening in the future.
For example, they have concluded that a Russian missile, that’s to say, a Russian-manufactured missile, in other words the Buk missile, and of course… this gives scope to western headline writers to put in their headlines that it was a Russian missile, because it is a Russian-made missile- that is not disputed, it would appear from these findings - rather than a Russian-owned missile."

He also added that "once having found that, the enquiry went into some detail to say that three simulations were run as to where the trajectory of this missile flight might have indicated that it had come from. And they haven’t come to any conclusions on that.
So we’ve got a situation where three different parties: the investigation team, the Ukraine government, and the Russian Federation government - with the help of the manufacturers of the missile system who reported in their own report this morning in a separate report - have come to different conclusions where this missile was fired from."

Kees Van Der Pijl, international relations expert, University of Sussex said:
“The one thing that I’m absolutely sure about is that I feel that the silence from the West, and the Dutch government in particular, on many of these issues has served whether intentionally or not - and I fear it’s intentional - to allow all the blame to be put on Russia. If you look at the whole history of this terrible tragic accident, there is a strong element of willful demonization of the figure of Vladimir Putin, as the devil incarnate. And every time when you are imprecise in your conclusions, people will draw the conclusion for themselves that it is apparently a Russian act. I find that extremely disconcerting. The reason, for instance, why the US has not made public its satellite information, but has relied in all its public statements of the tragedy on social media, I find very problematic. The same with the press conference today: journalists were not allowed to ask questions. These are things that you have to think about. They lead, in my view, only to one conclusion, and at least some people consciously want to leave an element of uncertainty to allow the suspicion falling on Russia to continue.”

The expert said that "the report also doesn’t address the issue of whose missile this might well have been. For example, were it to have been fired from a rebel area, this may well have been a missile that was either captured from the Ukraine government’s forces, handed over by Ukraine government forces, or could even have been supplied by the Russian Federation, as some western alleged experts have suggested. So again, all this is still open to further investigation.
Another aspect of this was that the Netherlands’ investigation came, I thought, very close to - notwithstanding that it isn’t within its remit to apportion blame - it really did state quite clearly, that in its view Ukraine was wrong given information that was available to the Ukraine government at the time not to have closed its airspace to a higher ceiling than it did.
And this gives rise to the suggestion that Ukraine should have closed its airspace, and that may well had impact further down the line, because there are legal cases going ahead against the Ukraine government in respect of alleged negligence by that government in not closing its airspace."

Bruno Drweski, professor at the National Institute of Languages and Eastern Civilizations, commented on the DSB final report:“It happens that it is not a real criminal inquiry – it is a rather political inquiry. We are in fact in a situation of a propaganda war because from the very beginning the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) didn’t intervene in the inquiry, and then we had the Dutch which is also not a very neutral country that took the inquiry. So, it is difficult to imagine that this inquiry could have been objective. Apparently, a lot of information is missing – for some reason we cannot know. And I doubt that these 15 months were taken to get to this information they didn’t get anyway. I think it was a preparation to give us an answer which looks more or less objective but which is not objective in that situation”.

"In fact, even for myself, within one hour of the accident happening, my first tweets on this issue were: how come there was an airliner allowed to be flying over a combat zone, and that was a concern that was reiterated today.
In other words, we have some clarity, there are some possible scenarios that have been ruled out by this enquiry, but there are still many questions that remain to be answered. And those presumably will be answered if they are capable of being answered by the criminal investigation by the Dutch prosecutor, which is due to report in some months in the future," Shoebridge told RT.

DSB report: not in dispute; just narrow scope'
The Dutch report just confirmed what we had already know, said Michael Maloof, a former senior security policy analyst in the office of the US Secretary of Defense. This was a very narrow report, he added.
"I think the report was very narrow in scope. We all had concluded that it was done by a surface to air BUK missile. The devil is in the details of that report – what was in the appendixes that we haven’t heard yet. I didn’t hear anything about what the board’s conclusion was on the test that the missile manufacture itself had represented: it was an old missile that shot down the aircraft and not a more modern version. So, this was a very narrow report, not to cast any blame. And also even though they may have said some triangulation of where the actual shot came from, that was not evidenced in this report and that probably would be useful for the criminal report that is going to come out either late this year or early next year. I think the report itself just confirmed what we had already known and it did do away with other speculation of an air-to-air attack, or anything of the sort," Maloof told RT.
He said: "I am also struck by the fact that the US and the Ukraine still have not provided certain critical information to the Dutch authorities on the actual location from their own means. The question is then raised: Is this to protect their own detection capabilities, or what? I am a little bit bothered by that because we have satellites and other technical capabilities that could actually help pinpoint what the origin of a shot might have come from. The US certainly would have that kind of information, and it’s my information that they have not turned that information over.
As far as the technical aspect of determining the cause of the aircraft crash I think that is not in dispute. But again the details are not sufficient to distinguish whether it was an older version of the BUK or a newer version. That is very critical."

I didn’t think TTIP could get any scarier, but then I spoke to the EU official in charge of it
With just eight words she exposed everything that's wrong with the deal, and why it needs to be defeated
Independent John Hilary
I was recently granted a rare glimpse behind the official façade of the EU when I met with its Trade Commissioner in her Brussels office. I was there to discuss the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), the controversial treaty currently under negotiation between the EU and the USA.
As Trade Commissioner, Cecilia Malmström occupies a powerful position in the apparatus of the EU. She heads up the trade directorate of the European Commission, the post previously given to Peter Mandelson when he was forced to quit front line politics in the UK. This puts her in charge of trade and investment policy for all 28 EU member states, and it is her officials that are currently trying to finalise the TTIP deal with the USA.
In our meeting, I challenged Malmström over the huge opposition to TTIP across Europe. In the last year, a record three and a quarter million European citizens have signed the petition against it. Thousands of meetings and protests have been held across all 28 EU member states, including a spectacular 250,000-strong demonstration in Berlin this weekend.
When put to her, Malmström acknowledged that a trade deal has never inspired such passionate and widespread opposition. Yet when I asked the trade commissioner how she could continue her persistent promotion of the deal in the face of such massive public opposition, her response came back icy cold: “I do not take my mandate from the European people.”

7 Suppressed Inventions That Would Have Changed the World
7 Suppressed Inventions That Would Have Changed the World
Paul Philips September 13, 2015
6. Harry Hoxey (1901–1974) -The Hoxey remedies for curing cancer.
Developed and handed down from successive generations, Harry Hoxey was able to use a herbal remedy and an externally applied paste to successfully treat cancer. The herbal formula detoxified the body and boosted the immune system, while the external paste got rid of tumours on the outside. From this, 17 private cancer clinics had been established throughout the USA.
In the mid 1950s, a number of doctors reviewed Hoxey’s work and came to the conclusion:
-This clinic now has under treatment or observation between four and five thousand cancer patients. It handles approximately ninety patients per day. Approximately 100 new patients per week come to the clinic seeking relief, and the evidence we have seen indicates that approximately 90 percent of these are terminal cases.
Over the years the clinic has accumulated more than 10,000 case histories, photographic studies and X-ray studies from all over the United States, Canada, Alaska, Mexico, Hawaii, the Central Zone and elsewhere. We find as a fact that the Hoxey Cancer Clinic in Dallas, Texas, is successfully treating pathologically proven cases of cancer, both internal and external, without the use of surgery, radium or X-ray…
Some of those presented before us have been free of symptoms as long as twenty four years, and the physical evidence indicates that they are all enjoying exceptional health at this time…We are willing to assist this Clinic in any way possible in bringing this treatment to the American public. We are willing to use it…on our own patients.
The above statement represents the unanimous findings of this Committee. In testimony thereof we hereby attach our signatures.
Sir Edgard Bond M.D., Willard G. Palmer M.D., Hans Kalm M.D, A.C. Timbs M.D., Frederick H. Thurston M.D. D.O., E.E. Loffler M.D., H.B. Mueller M.D., R.C. Bowie M.D., Benjamin F. Bowers M.D., Roy O. Yeats M.D
cache_34158747Having got the news the AMA tried to buy the treatment. Hoxey refused on the grounds that they would not give it to poor people free of charge.
A long legal and political battle enraged with much media interest. Several thousand people testified they had been cured using Hoxey’s work while the AMA refused third party evaluations. In spite of these circumstances favouring Hoxey, and winning his case, the medical fraternity soon branded him a quack or charlatan. He continued his treatment over the years and was arrested about a 100 times! Each arrest he was able make bail and continue.
The fact that no patient would testify against him and the acting District Attorney’s brother was cured by his methods may well have been the reasons for his continual reprieve. Eventually, however, the FDA managed to seize the remedies from the patients’ homes and shut down the clinics. Ironically, Hoxey contracted bladder cancer and had to be operated on since his methods did not work on him.
This story, however, does have a good ending. A former nurse in one of the clinics, Mildred Nelson, took the treatment to Mexico. The clinic, under a different name, still exists to this day and by all accounts is deemed to be a compassionate, caring and most of all successful (80% cure rate, with medical records to prove it) institution. The authorities, the NCI have deliberately looked the other way.

Cancer cure incl stage 4. 85% success rate
How The Mexican Clinic Kills Cancer
(I highlight only 5 of the 14 ways Mexican clinic kills cancer. You’ll need to have a free consultation with the doctor to discover exactly what he can do to save your life.)
Voted cancer treatment of the year 2013
They build and reprogram your immune system (Immunotherapy). This therapy is designed to naturally stimulate your own immune system against tumor antigens. Entering the body through an IV port it stimulates the immune system to can attack tumor cells which leads to dramatically improved survival rates.
The immune system is programed to recognize and destroy proteins or related materials found on and in cancer cells which is known to cloak itself against Killer-T cells. This helps the body's immune system fight cancer by training it to recognize and destroy cancer cells. The Mexican Clinic I was treated at has achieved a high success rate (85% success) by using immunotherapy in conjunction with other natural treatments, while avoiding chemo and/or radiation therapy.
Heat severely damages cancer cells.
They use heat (hyperthermia) to severely damage tumors. A Leading European Journal for oncology reports: Severe damage to 100% of tumor cells for every patient studied using heat. Patient after patient was successfully treated without using toxic chemicals. Heat has been known to kill cancer without causing adverse effects on healthy cells. Researchers have shown that radiation and chemo resistant tumor stem cells can be dramatically damaged by heating them up to above 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Researchers have hypothesized that the heat was sensitizing tumors mainly by disrupting their stem cells’ DNA-repair capacity. The Mexican Cancer Clinic has been successfully using hyperthermia (heat) to achieve high survival rates.
Researchers have found oxygen deficiency is ALWAYS present when cancer develops.
The clinic will raise your oxygen level. Researchers have found oxygen deficiency is ALWAYS present when cancer develops. It has been long stated by the experts that tumors create its own pockets of hypoxia (low oxygen). By raising your oxygen levels they can kill cancer cells. Experts explain the reason behind cancer hypoxia (low oxygen level) as a lack of oxygen commonly created as a tumor outgrows its blood supply. A new study finds that giving high-dose oxygen may help efforts to stimulate the immune system against tumors. The clinic has been using oxygen therapies to effectively increase a patient’s survival probabilities.
Sonodynamic cancer treatments work.
The clinic is one of the best at using Sonodynamic Therapy: This therapy utilizes specific light and sound wavelengths to activate a substance that concentrates in cancer cells and responds to cause a cancer killing effect. Patients take a type of natural drug called a sono-sensitizer, which is sensitive to sound. Ultrasound is used to activate the sensitizer within the cancer cells. The activated sensitizer "explodes" into free radical oxygen, inducing death of the cancer cell because it cannot survive in a high oxygen environment.
IPT is a true Stage IV alternative cancer treatment.
The clinic uses Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT): IPT is a true Stage IV alternative cancer treatment. It uses a combination of two orthodox drugs – insulin (actually insulin is also found in nature) and a natural alternative treatment. The reason IPT works so well is because cancer uses sugar for energy. Therefore the clinic safely and effectively lowers patient’s sugar levels to get cancer really hungry. Then the clinic uses a natural alternative treatment such as: Laetrile fused with a sugar substance to kill cancer cells. Cancer lowers it's defenses to accept as much sugar as it can for fuel and also takes in the laetrile. It's natural and effective. This is another reason the clinic has such a high success rate.
If you have cancer and your conventional treatments aren't working go to the clinic I went to. They have an outstanding success rate.
The big pharm cancer industry kills for profit. That's why cannabis is illegal. Dave cares. Cares about big pharms' bottom line.

America Reels as Putin “Redline’s” Israel
13.10.2015 Author: Gordon Duff
There was no mention of Israel during President his momentous UN speech. However, at the press conference afterward, things took on an unusual turn. There, President Putin announced an intelligence sharing relationship with Israel’ military high command based on what he noted was Israel’s national interests in the security of Syria.
Then he said something startling. We still have to discuss the problem of Israel’s air attacks (on Syria).
With President Assad’s official request, in accordance with international law, for military aid from Russia, Putin’s statement takes on a whole new meaning, particularly since Russia will be deploying advanced air defenses over Syria along with air superiority fighter aircraft.
The free reign of Israel, who has continually attacked the Syrian army in support of ISIS forces now known to be reinforced with as many as 800 specially trained Israeli Army commandos, may well be coming to an end.
Putin’s statement about dealing with Israel and their illegal air attacks on Syria was ignored by the world’s press. Putin’s tone, almost as an afterthought, was far from benign or innocent.
One reason the West chose to pretend it was unsaid is simple. Imagine President Obama coming to the American people about the Russian threat to Israel:
“Russia is threatening Israel with retaliation for their illegal support of the ISIS terror organization and their use of American weapons and munitions to help ISIS conquer the Middle East. America cannot allow such Russian interference and must continue to support not only the State of Israel but the ISIS and al Nusra terror organizations both in the Middle East and around the world as we have for decades.”
Obama is reeling from the recent embarrassment at the failure of his “moderate rebel” training program run in Turkey by the Pentagon. The second set of graduates has, as reported in the world press, joined the terrorists along with their modern American arms.
However, there is a story behind this, one no one has touched.
According to Pentagon insiders, the operations of ISIS and her sister organizations are being led out of the Pentagon itself. This is how it was explained to me:
“You know the Pentagon is run almost entirely by “end times” Christian Zionists. The military leadership of the United States believes that it is necessary for ISIS to conquer not only Syria and Iraq but Jordan as well. Only when ISIS takes over enough biblical sites, such as Palmyra and the Second Temple of Solomon at Tadmoor, will the End Times Prophesies be fulfilled. This is why the bombings don’t work, this is why ISIS supply operations are backed by US air drops, this is why ISIS has full access to American intelligence and this is why Israel is using its air force and now ground troops inside Syria to help ISIS.”

Documents Reveal Media Tycoon's Cooperation with CIA (Rupert Murdoch)
Journalistic objectivity was never high on Rupert Murdoch’s ethics list, but “secret” records from the 1980s show how far the media magnate went to ingratiate himself with President Reagan by collaborating with U.S. propaganda operations
Robert Parry (Consortium News)
He'll do anything for money. The neocons' favorite media mogul
Investigative reporter Robert Parry broke many of the Iran-Contra stories for The Associated Press and Newsweek in the 1980s. This article originally appeared on October 5, 2015, at the investigative news website, Consortium News, of which Parry is the editor.
In February 1983, global media magnate Rupert Murdoch volunteered to help the Reagan administration’s propaganda strategy for deploying U.S. mid-range nuclear missiles in Europe by using his newspapers to exacerbate public fears about the Soviet Union, according to a recently declassified “secret” letter.
Murdoch, then an Australian citizen with major newspaper holdings in Great Britain and some in the United States, had already established close political ties with British Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and was developing them with President Ronald Reagan, partly through one of Murdoch’s lawyers, the infamous Red-baiter Roy Cohn, who had served as counsel to Sen. Joe McCarthy’s investigations in the 1950s.
By February 1983, Cohn had already arranged a face-to-face meeting between Reagan and Murdoch (on Jan. 18, 1983) and had brokered a collaborative relationship between Murdoch and Charles Z. Wick, director of the U.S. Information Agency who oversaw U.S. propaganda operations worldwide.
On Feb. 14, 1983, in a “secret” letter to Reagan’s National Security Advisor William P. Clark, USIA Director Wick described a phone call from Murdoch in which they discussed ways to heighten European and American fears about Soviet SS-20 intermediate-range missiles and thus undermine activists pushing for nuclear disarmament. Murdoch said his comments reflected the views of high-ranking British officials with whom Murdoch had talked.
In the letter, Wick told Clark that CIA Director William J. Casey was eager to help Murdoch’s efforts by releasing classified satellite photos of the Soviet missiles in eastern Europe but was confronting resistance from the spy agency’s professional analysts.
“Rupert Murdoch … called me on February 9 [1983],” Wick told Clark. “Senior British officials have been telling him of their increasing concern with the rapid progress being made by the unilateralists,” a reference to the anti-nuclear activists who were rallying millions of Europeans to the cause of nuclear disarmament.

Does America Actually Want World War 3?
The way Washington policy makers behave might lead one to think so
Michael Snyder (The Economic Collapse)
RI: Escalation after escalation...
This article originally appeared at The Economic Collapse blog
Why has Barack Obama airdropped 50 tons of ammunition into areas that “moderate rebels” in Syria supposedly control? This is essentially the equivalent of poking the Russians directly in the eyes. Much of this ammunition will end up in the hands of those that the Russians are attempting to bomb into oblivion, and so to Russia it appears that we are attempting to make their job much harder. And of course the truth is that there aren’t really any “moderate rebels” in Syria at all. Nearly all of the groups that are fighting are made up primarily of radical jihadists and/or hired mercenaries.
Personally, I don’t see anyone over there that you could call “the good guys”. At the end of the day, the U.S. supports just about anyone that wants to get rid of the Assad regime, and the Russians are working very hard to keep Assad in power. Just like the civil war in Ukraine, the conflict in Syria is in great danger of being transformed into a proxy war between the United States and Russia, and many fear that these conflicts could eventually be setting the stage for World War III.
The ferocity of Russian airstrikes in Syria has surprised observers all over the planet, and over the past couple of days these airstrikes have been extended to include some new areas…
- Russian Air Forces have extended the range of their airstrikes on Islamic State positions in Syria to four provinces, focusing primarily on demolishing fortified installations and eliminating supply bases and the terrorists’ infrastructure.
Over the last 24 hours Russian aircraft have attacked terrorist positions in the Hama, Idlib, Latakia and Raqqa provinces of Syria. In total, 64 sorties targeted 63 Islamic State installations, among them 53 fortified zones, 7 arms depots, 4 training camps and a command post.
-When I read reports like this, I am deeply troubled. The Obama administration claims that it has been bombing ISIS positions in Syria for over a year. So why in the world do these targets still exist?
Was the U.S. military incapable of finding these installations?
That doesn’t seem likely.
So why weren’t they destroyed long ago?
Did the Obama administration not want them destroyed for some reason?
What seems abundantly clear is that the Russians are doing what the Obama administration was either unwilling or unable to do. There is now mass panic among ISIS fighters, and thousands of them are fleeing the country…

Six Ways Russia's Action in Syria Has Turned the Tables On the West
Rakesh Krishnan Simha (Russia & India Report)
This article originally appeared in Russia & India Report
With its devastating air strikes on ISIS and US-funded rebel groups, Russia is now at the centre of the Syrian chessboard. Besides the obvious gains that include securing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s secular government and exposing American backing of terrorist groups, here are six strategic spinoffs from Moscow’s military action.
Sukhoi showstoppers are the new must have toys
Following their spectacular performance over Syrian skies, Russia’s Sukhoi warplanes are set to be the hottest commodity in the international arms market. With the MiG-29 providing top cover, the Sukhois – including the massive Su-34 fighter-bomber, the swing-wing Su-24 ground attack jet and the subsonic Su-25 tank buster – are doing a fantastic job. While the Su-24 is due for retirement, the Su-25 and Su-34 tandem could be the hottest new items on the wishlist of air forces around the world. The cruise missiles – probably the Klubs – that are thudding into terrorist hideouts are also likely to see an increase in popularity.
Intelligence bonanza for Russia

It's Not Long Before the Syria War Gets a Lot Hotter
Brandon Smith (alt-market.com)
Its going to get medieval...
This article originally appeared at alt-market.com
The Syrian crisis and the confluence of clashing interests there was entirely predictable. In fact, I wrote an article on my former website in 2010 outlining the potential for Syria as a high value catalyst for global conflict titled “Will Globalists Trigger Yet Another World War?”
In it, I summarized the dubious history of wars initiated over the past century, including the nature of false flags and false paradigms created by globalists designed to divide nations and peoples and turn them against each other. This strategy of engineered war (along with engineered economic collapse) has been used time and time again by the elites to artificially generate chaos and then consolidate and centralize power while the masses are blinded by confusion.
Even back then, the problem with Syria seemed obvious:
“…We have a nuclear armed Israel itching to attack Iran. We have Iran engaged in a defense pact with Syria against Israel. We have Syria with Russian navy bases and weapons on its soil, and we have the U.S. rampaging through the Middle East encroaching on the borders of Pakistan and Yemen, essentially pissing off everyone. What we have is a Globalist made recipe for disaster, using the same ingredients they have used for the last several major wars…”
Only a year after I published the piece the civil uprising in Syria began, starting with the “Daraa protest movement”, aided by covert intelligence agencies including the CIA.
In 2012, I decided to reexamine my original theory on Syria as a global catalyst in my article“Syria And Iran Dominoes Lead To World War.”
In that article, I felt it was necessary to summarize trends in the region, where they might lead, and how globalists might exploit each scenario to achieve a false conflict between East and West. I predicted that the entire Syrian insurgency was conjured out of the ether by NATO interests, due to the suspicious nature of the Council On Foreign Relations and their public statements suddenly SUPPORTING Al-Qaida in Syria. U.S. involvement in the funding and training of the organization we now know as ISIS (or al-Qaida 2.0) has been proven.
I predicted that U.S. ground troops would enter Syria. This has happened, though the U.S. government maintains that their role and numbers will be “limited.”
I suggested that once U.S. troops were deployed in any capacity in the region, Iran would join forces with the Syrian government under their already existing mutual defense pact. Today, Iranian troops are entering Syria en masse for combat operations.
I also predicted that U.S. involvement in Syria would eventually elicit a military response from Russia and a financial response from China. Though China has not yet used the conflict as an excuse to accelerate the dumping of U.S. treasuries, Russia is now fully committed to airstrikes and is preparing a ground invasion, possibly exceeding 150,000 troops.

‘Dropping Saudi prison contract is human rights victory, now end arms trade!’ – CAAT
RT 13 Oct, 2015
Prime Minister David Cameron’s scrapping of a British contract to manage Saudi prisons is a victory for human rights crusaders, but UK arms sales to the Gulf regime must end as well, says the Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT).
CAAT’s Andrew Smith told RT that campaigners and the media had been instrumental in forcing the British government to drop the contract, but said there was much work still to be done.
CAAT claims at least £4 billion (US$6 billion) worth of arms licenses, including those issued for Typhoon fighter jets, tear gas, military vehicles and riot equipment, have been granted to Saudi Arabia by the British government since 2010, despite a long list of abuses.

Does Anybody Remember Libya?
Four years after the Libyan state was smashed by US and European air forces and Western-backed rebels, the country is no closer to stability
Martin Podlasly (Neo Presse)
Another country destroyed by Western meddling
This article originally appeared at Neo Presse. Translated from the German by Boris Jaruselski
After the toppling and the death of the dictator Muammar al-Ghaddfi, after the bombing mainly by the French and US air forces, and after a short flush of victory, the country descended into a still ongoing and bloody civil war. To maintain an overview of the parties involved in the fighting, is hard even for seasoned observers.
“To all intents and purposes, there is practically no more state in Libya”, according to the head of the commission of the African Union, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma. On one side, there is the government of Abdullah Thenni, who resigned in August, and a transitional president Aguila Saleh Issa, with the government seat in Tobruk, who controls further regions in the east.
On the other side, there is Islamic opposition government of the former president Nuri Buhsamein and the prime minister Khalifa al-ghawi, who have their seat in Triopolis. In the far west of the country, Tuareg tribes are ruling, who are in alliance with the national congress of Buhsamein. Many militias and other interest groups dispersed across the country, are in between. The city of Syrte and the surrounding areas, are in the hands of the “Islamic State” and the Salafi Ansar-Al-Sharia militia. IS declared a Emirate in Libya in autumn last year, and goes on warring against both government sides, while having strongly fortified their reign of terror in Syrte.

Post posted.

The US has laid out its table. It's defending its failure to support Russia against US regional allies' owned ISIS (Da'esh).

"We'll help Russia if Russia stops supporting the democratically elected Assad government."

So arguing over Syrian administration is now more important than defending the West against ISIS (Da'esh).

Ergo ISIS (Da'esh) is not such a threat.

Before Russian presence, "ISIS is a threat to the West."

After, "Installing a US corporation-favouring regime is the priority."

Right,that's understood. All the US needs to do now is explain why the Russians can do in a few days what the 11 countries in the coalition operating illegally in Syria have failed to do in over a year.

And how excruciatingly expensive US (+NATO, EC, UK) imperialist policy in the ME, Africa and E. Europe benefits the US.

MH17 blame is a contrivance to pressure the Russians to not eliminate all the CIA-NATO's terrorist assets maybe.

3000+ ISIS (Da'esh), Jihadists and mercs have fled Syria, many (returning) to the EU.

The FSA is not threatened. It is so small Russia would have a hard time finding it.

I saw the posited new name for AQ gangs (JaNusra, al Sham, Muslim Bro etc) in Syria, but I forgot it. Something to do with 'democracy'. Hah. The drugs trafficking, kidnapping, thieving, butchering and torturing gangs for democracy, yeah.

Precedent for renaming disasters.
Windscale - Sellafield.
When the Russians asked the West for help with Chernobyl, they suggested they change its name.
Right on.

The Funding of the 2016 US Presidential Election: America’s 158 Billionaire “Families”
The Funding of the 2016 US Presidential Election: America’s 158 Billionaire “Families”
By Nicholas Confessore, Sarah Cohen, and Karen Yourish
Global Research, October 12, 2015
Paul Craig Roberts 10 October 2015
They are overwhelmingly white, rich, older and male, in a nation that is being remade by the young, by women, and by black and brown voters. Across a sprawling country, they reside in an archipelago of wealth, exclusive neighborhoods dotting a handful of cities and towns. And in an economy that has minted billionaires in a dizzying array of industries, most made their fortunes in just two: finance and energy.
Now they are deploying their vast wealth in the political arena, providing almost half of all the seed money raised to support Democratic and Republican presidential candidates. Just 158 families, along with companies they own or control, contributed $176 million in the first phase of the campaign, a New York Times investigation found. Not since before Watergate have so few people and businesses provided so much early money in a campaign, most of it through channels legalized by the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision five years ago.
These donors’ fortunes reflect the shifting composition of the country’s economic elite. Relatively few work in the traditional ranks of corporate America, or hail from dynasties of inherited wealth. Most built their own businesses, parlaying talent and an appetite for risk into huge wealth: They founded hedge funds in New York, bought up undervalued oil leases in Texas, made blockbusters in Hollywood. More than a dozen of the elite donors were born outside the United States, immigrating from countries like Cuba, the old Soviet Union, Pakistan, India and Israel.
But regardless of industry, the families investing the most in presidential politics overwhelmingly lean right, contributing tens of millions of dollars to support Republican candidates who have pledged to pare regulations; cut taxes on income, capital gains and inheritances; and shrink entitlement programs. While such measures would help protect their own wealth, the donors describe their embrace of them more broadly, as the surest means of promoting economic growth and preserving a system that would allow others to prosper, too.
