Dr Guy Baily, NHA nominating officer and executive committee member, gives a personal view on Syria  
No More ‘Shock and Awe’
04/12/2015 NHAspace    2 Comments

NHA policies, when not directly about the provision of health care, are almost always rooted in the wider social determinants of health. There is no doubt that all types of warfare have catastrophic effects on public health. The bar, for military interventions to be acceptable, must always be a very high one. In my view it has not been reached for the Syrian bombing campaign. The recent history of Western military interventions is of a series of calamities. The reasons why they are so liable to go wrong have been well rehearsed and it should be possible to learn from them. I suggest that before becoming violently embroiled in other people’s countries, a few conditions have to be met:

1) There must be a humanitarian crisis which cannot be resolved by other means. There are plenty of humanitarian crises about but force is not often the obvious solution.

2) There must be a clear and realistic political and diplomatic strategy that has a probability of returning the recipients of our bombs to stable government. In Syria there is a complete absence of such a strategy.  The local fighters are fully engaged with fighting Assad in their own backyards, while being bombed by the Russians, and have little interest in wandering off into the Eastern desert to take on ISIS. Many of them are radical Sunnis closely allied to Al Qaeda, who we recently invaded two countries to attack.  Where these forces have achieved local power they have shown more interest in feuding than in tolerating other groups or religious minorities. The Kurds, who are well organised and have a coherent government, are very sensibly not interested in trying to control large areas inhabited exclusively by Arabs. Who is going to govern Raqqa after it has been flattened? This needs serious diplomatic peace-brokering.

3) The use of military power must clearly and directly enable the political strategy. As there is no credible political strategy in Syria, this is going to be a hard one to fulfil. Air power can be an effective tool when used in close support of a well organised ground force, such as the Kurdish Peshmerga in Iraq, but otherwise what can be achieved by bombing is limited and the collateral damage to people and infrastructure is huge.  Conflicts can ultimately only be resolved by winning over hearts and minds.  Killing all the bad people – presumably so only good people are left – appears to be the infantile level of military reasoning we have sunk to.  Similarly ‘fighting Islamic fascism’ has a fine rhetorical ring to it but in reality, bombing is more likely to boost recruitment to Islamic fascism than destroy the idea. Their ideology actually requires that we attack them, they desperately need it. And remember it was the excesses of the Iraq campaign that gave rise to IS in the first place.

4) The use of military violence should be the absolute minimum required for number 3. No more ‘shock and awe’.
The argument of self-defence is entirely bogus. Dropping bombs on Syria is not an effective means to prevent attacks on London and is more likely to be counterproductive. Too often, a bombing campaign fulfils an atavistic urge to lash out at the bad guys without any further real strategy. The problem in Syria is not a lack of sufficient high explosives.  Nor is it a lack of different players with different agendas getting involved.  Britain could be so much more useful as a non-belligerent broker between all the competing interests that must be reconciled to bring about the diplomatic deal that ultimately will have to emerge. And we could use the money otherwise spent on those fantastically pricey smart bombs to support the refugees.  But that would not allow David Cameron to feel like one of the cool kids when Western leaders meet.

Why ISIS Exists: The Double Game

December 8, 2015 by WashingtonsBlog
By Joe Giambrone, Political Film Blog.

Pete Souza
The western press laments the near impossibility of defeating an organization that didn’t even exist a couple of short years ago. Brand ISIS, the unconquerable, may actually become a truism if the people of the western nations continue to listen to the lies and propaganda of their own governments.
You’ve been told a lot of things about the war in Syria, and clearly most of it is finely crafted war propaganda, which seeks to obscure the forest by showing you an endless series of trees. The trees are gunshots, explosions, and dead bodies. The forest is elusive, vast, covers several continents, and we are only ever given small samples of the terrain. The section of the forest that receives some of the latest scrutiny is not necessarily the crucial part of the story. Beneath the entire forest lies an aquifer, a vast ocean of water that feeds the trees invisibly, silently, yet persistently. Without this water supply there would be no forest to speak of.
But here is where the metaphor breaks. Unlike an underground reservoir, which is impossible to eradicate, the money and weapons transfers to fundamentalist militants can be stopped. The problem is that western so-called “leaders” have done absolutely nothing to stop them. In fact they rarely mention these sources of terrorist arms, training and funding at all, in public anyway. When acknowledged these become theater, hand wringing, vague excuses rather than concrete action. At other times intelligence services themselves willingly hand over sophisticated weapons to terrorists, such as TOW anti-tank missiles and surface to air “MANPADS” capable of bringing down commercial airliners. The nations most responsible for creating the extremist armies on the ground—Turkey and the Persian Gulf tyrannies—are close allies and even “friends” to US and European political masters.
Establishing the Grand Fraud
So what in the hell is really going on? Well, war of course. This is what modern war looks like. In particular this latest proxy war targets the multi-cultural, yet authoritarian regime of Syria’s Bashar Al Assad. NATO dislikes Assad because he is an ally of Iran, Russia and Hezbollah in Lebanon. Oil and gas pipeline routes also factor in. Western powers and Gulf States that don’t like Assad have, like a pack of wild jackals, been ripping at Syria since 2011. The primary supporter of ISIS and the Al Nusrah Front is Turkey, which by any objective measure should be considered a state sponsor of international terrorism and isolated immediately.
Sometimes we are even provided short glimpses of the reality, by our own so-called leaders. Vice President of the United States Joe Biden said: “[Erdogan…the Saudis, the Emiratis, etc.]…poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens of thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad, except that the people who were being supplied were al-Nusra, and al Qaeda, and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world.”
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said: “Still, donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide.”
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey said: “I know major Arab allies who fund them [ISIS].”
Former Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki said: “It’s unbelievable and unacceptable that more than 60 nations comprising this coalition that have the most modern aircraft and weapons at their disposal have been conducting their campaign in Iraq for 14 months and IS still remains in the country.”

The Daily Beast Exclusive: MH370 Was Crippled by Sudden Electrical Failure

New data reveals a runaway power outage doomed the 777, supporting the theory a fire in the cargo hold turned the jet into a flying zombie.
The pilots of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 were suddenly confronted by a cascading loss of electrical power in which many of the airplane’s vital systems shut down, placing an urgent demand on the crew to understand and deal with the failures.
Before this loss of power occurred the crew had been able to make regular contact with air traffic controllers and the airplane was able to automatically transmit its position.
After it, no word was ever heard again from the pilots. Its two automatic reporting systems, the transponder continually sending the airplane’s position and a separate system reporting the condition of its critical systems at half-hourly intervals, both stopped working.
This new revelation of a serious technical problem and its immediate effects is buried in the arcane detail of a lengthy report (PDF) issued last week by the Australian Transport Bureau, which is directing the search for the Boeing 777. It is the first official acknowledgement of what had previously been only speculation—that there was a sudden loss of electrical power capable of disabling vital systems.

Putin’s War of Words with Turkey Escalates to Nukes and Ethnic Cleansing

The Fiscal Times By Rob Garver 16 hours agoWhile there has been no further military engagement between Russia and Turkey since a Russian bomber was shot down by the Turkish Air Force last month, the war of words in the most volatile region of the Middle East continues to escalate.
In a roundtable interview with reporters on Wednesday, a senior Turkish official accused Russia of conducting an “ethnic cleansing” campaign in the northern part of Syria. At the same time, Russian President Vladimir Putin was reminding the world in general, and Turkey in particular, that not only is Russia a nuclear power, but that the Kremlin has nuclear-capable missiles aboard a submarine stationed just off Turkey’s coastline.

Re: Putin’s War of Words with Turkey Escalates to Nukes and Ethnic Cleansing
Putin bogging down in Syria.
"Officials said Putin’s own frustration with the battlefield effectiveness of Assad's forces and their allies on the ground helps explain his willingness to join peace talks that have convened twice in Vienna this fall. Obama and Kerry hope that an agreement among the many countries that are party to the conflict—including Iran, Saudi Arabia and Turkey—will begin a process that removes Assad from power, something they call a prerequisite to ending the wider Syrian conflict and allowing for the defeat of ISIL.

“The lack of significant military progress by pro-regime forces only emphasizes the failure of Assad's leadership, which explains why Putin has been so willing to publicly back the idea of Assad's departure as part of a political settlement,” said one U.S. intelligence official.

One has to stand back amazed.
One has to stand back amazed.
WE are on the brink of a nuclear war but you wouldn't know it from the news. Ppl think I'm on another planet. No-one seems to know or care amongst the regular folk.

WE ARE ON THE BRINK OF A FRIGGIN NUCLEAR WAR.

The Turkish branch of NATO has been caught buying stolen Syrian oil in massive amounts and so funding terrorists.
Who is behind the logistics, the know how to get the oil?
Putin is having a verbal battle with NATO's Turkish rep after the jet and helicopter were shot down, Syrian forces killed. Baiting the bear to retaliate. Now there is a nuclear armed sub off the Syrian coast. Be sure there are more out of sight. Putin said a while back if NATO attacked he would use nuclear weapons. He tends to be a man of his word.

Whoever is at the top in the West wants war. It isn't Obama. He's just a facade politician Like Cameron. Rockefeller, Rothschild or Pilgrims or the whole caboodle including British freemasonry? Not just for the agenda. Currency is collapsing, faith in the markets is going, puppets are being exposed. Putin knows if he can avoid war then the evil ones lose.

Rockefeller said we shall have a new world order if not peacefully then by force, paraphrasing.

Obama, Rockefeller's man and Rothschild's, Putin? I wonder if they bet each other.

Don't let Cameron have nukes at any cost. He will use them under orders.

Is the army behind Cameron or us? The police haven't been turned into regime strong arms yet.

Putin should watch his back. These people have no scruples.

There is a sleeping hierarchy ready to take over from dissenters in the NHS, welfare, councils, education and the civil service although the seniors look to be sell-outs already. Murder is nothing to these people. Osborne is fostering dissent. Doctors, nurses and welfare workers are being made to suffer.

Brian should communicate with people at New Eastern Outlook that have an idea what is going down on the other side of the pond if he is interested in going international.

Keep an eye on UKColumn for hard home truths.

Microwaves can be used to control mood. Cell towers emit microwaves and can vary frequency.

How one in seven paedophile suspects are holding down 'respectable' jobs such as posts in teaching,

By Sophie Jane Evans for MailOnline and Press Association Reporter
10 December 2015
Nearly 700 suspected paedophiles in Britain - including teachers, carers and government officials - have been arrested over child abuse images in the past nine months, shocking new figures reveal.
Around one in seven of those held was employed in, or volunteered in, a 'position of trust' - with suspects working in the education, law enforcement, criminal justice and government sectors.

The Sad Death of the Latin American Left.
"Chávez and his self-proclaimed Bolivarian Revolution — named for his hero Simón Bolívar, Venezuela’s independence leader — bought allies through oil giveaways and wooed rogue regimes such as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s Iran. Brazil’s pragmatic foreign policy, by contrast, centered on reforming the existing world order; it also sought to check U.S. power across the hemisphere and, more broadly, democratize multilateral institutions such as the United Nations and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), with Brazil as the lead beneficiary.
These outsized dreams were fueled by the outsized personalities of Lula and Chávez. But they were also enabled by an economic boom that couldn’t last — and, indeed, hasn’t. Their hand-picked, charisma-challenged successors have been forced to trim their ambitions amid a collapse in the price of global commodities. Rousseff — the dry, technocratic former chairman of Brazil’s state-run oil company Petrobras and former guerrilla leader — has struggled to recover from China’s reduced hunger for Brazilian iron ore and agricultural products, just as Nicolás Maduro has had no answer for the steep drop in the price of oil.
In the end, despite their divergent strategies, both Venezuela and Brazil have wound up in the same humbled place, their earlier international dreams in tatters.
To be sure, Chavismo’s damage is real, and deeply felt. But the government of Chávez and Maduro and the Bolivarian project have been marked more by incompetence, corruption, and criminality, than by ideological coherence. Today, the Venezuelan economy is the worst-performing in the world, with a GDP expected to contract by around 10 percent. Its people suffer from massive shortages of basic goods like corn meal and toilet paper, inflation rates that are expected to reach 200 percent this year, and the second-highest murder rate in the world."

Ever Wonder Why the Most Mass Shootings Ever Have Happened Under Obama?
Activist Post By Truthstream Media
When compiling the data for mass shootings (where four or more people have died as per FBI definition of mass murder) under the last five presidents, clearly there’s a startling outlier under the Obama administration. Largest push for gun control in American history just so happens to coincide at a time when there are more mass shootings than ever before in American history. What are the odds?
We’re talking a 700+% increase in random mass shootings where four or more people are killed just since George Jr. was president…
