Israel, Turkey and ISIS Ally to Steal Syrian Energy  
New Eastern Outlook 28.01.2016
Author: Maram Susli

The discovery of the Leviathan gas field within Israeli and Cypriot waters has made Israel a potential energy exporting nation. However the means to transport the gas to the large energy markets of Europe continues to elude Israel. Recent talks between Turkey and Israel about plans to build a gas pipeline, through Turkey and into Europe, have been extensively reported.

Many of the reports claim the discussions are the results of the thaw in relations between Turkey and Israel. The rift was supposedly caused by Israel’s attack on the MV MarMara, the aid ship attempting to break Israel’s siege on Gaza in 2010, and the execution of 8 Turkish citizens on board the ship. But even during this period of “tense” relations, discussions about the gas pipeline were still being held between Turkey and Israel. Trade between the two states went up by 25%.

The tense relations were a facade, a face saving measure that allowed Turkish President Erdogan to portray an image of a patriotic defender of Turkish citizens, and a champion of Islam and the Palestinian cause. During the initial uproar of the flotilla incident, Erdogan promised the next flotilla would be escorted by the Turkish navy. Instead Erdogan blocked the Mavi MarMara from heading to Gaza. Far from defending the Palestinian cause, Turkey continued to produce Israel’s Military combat boots which are used in the occupation of the West bank. Relations with Turkey improved even though Israel’s treatment of Palestinians did not improve. This reveals the extent of which Turkey’s foreign policy is drenched in hypocrisy.

For both Israel and Turkey, business comes first. Israel is also juggling a foreign policy inconsistent with its portrayed image of being at the forefront of the war on terrorism. The fact that Turkey is one of Al-Qaeda’s and ISIS’s main benefactors , has not been an issue for Israel. Even when ISIS beheaded Israeli journalist Steven Sotloff while Turkey was allowing ISIS to use its border as a smuggling route, Israeli-Turkish relations were not harmed.

Israel and Turkey have a shared agenda in Syria, which has stood in the many business plans between the respective states. Long Gas pipelines can only be built economically in shallow waters hugging coastlines, or future repairs would be difficult. The planned Turkey-Israel pipeline could potentially have to go through Syria’s exclusive economic zone which extends 370 km off the Syrian coastline. Israel illegally occupies Syrian land and has been in a state of cold war with Syria for decades. Both Israel and Turkey would economically benefit from the dismantlement of the Syrian State through the support of terrorist groups operating in the country. Several American think tanks have been promoting the balkanization of Syria and separating its coastal region from the rest of the country. Armed Forces Journal published plans to balkanise Syria in 2006, preliminary talks on the gas pipeline between Turkey-Israel were also held that year. Such a breakdown of the Syrian state would clear the path for Israel and Turkey to build a pipeline across Syria’s coastal region, and ISIS is the tool by which this can be achieved.

In recent years, Syria has also stood in the way of Turkey’s goal of becoming a pipeline hub. While Turkey doesn’t have much oil and gas resources of its own, it can still profit from the resources of surrounding nations by forcing all gas pipelines through its borders and then onto Europe. But in 2009, Syrian president Assad refused to sign the proposed agreement that would allow a pipeline through Syria connecting Qatari gas to Turkey and onto European markets. Assad said this was to protect the interests of his Russian allies who are the main suppliers of gas to Europe. Russia was negotiating its own gas pipeline deal with Turkey which was shelved after Turkey shot down a Russian jet. The new Leviathan pipeline deal with Israel would resurrect Turkey’s hope of becoming a pipeline hub again. But once again Syria stands in the way, which is why Turkey has chosen a policy of sending ISIS terrorists across the border to destabilise Syria. This policy has already allowed Turkey to supply Syrian oil to Europe, via ISIS oil trucks.

Israel itself has been supporting Al Qaeda and ISIS inside Syria, providing a safe zone and medical treatment in the Israeli occupied Syrian Golan heights. This has gone hand in hand with the discovery of oil in the Golan Heights. The Golan is internationally recognised as Syrian land that was occupied by Israel in 1967. The selling of Syrian oil by Israel would constitute a war crime under the fourth geneva convention. In spite of this, Israel granted a ‘drilling licence’ to a company whose shareholders include Dick Cheney, Rupert Murdoch and Jacob Rothschild in 2013. Israel has been attempting to circumvent international law and annex the Golan Heights for decades. But the Syrian Druze population who inhabit the Golan remain steadfastly loyal to Syria and supportive of the Syrian government and military. Israel is backing Al Qaeda and ISIS in the hope that destabilising the Golan Heights will legitimise Israel’s annexation claims. Israeli President Netanyahu asked Obama to support Israel’s bid to annex to Golan, under the guise of protecting the Syrian Druze population from the very terrorists Israel is supporting. Israel would only be able to sell illegally obtained Syrian oil to Europe through their Turkish route. Talks between Turkey and Israel as far back as 2006 included not only gas, but oil pipelines as well.

Turkey and Israel have allied themselves with terrorist groups, ISIS and Al Qeada, to dismantle the Syrian state and allow for the theft of Syrian energy resources. Israel’s facade of being opposed to terrorism and Turkey’s attempt to portray an image of being champion of Palestinian rights takes second place to that objective. The death of hundreds of thousands of people, the destruction of an entire nation, and the spread of terror throughout the world, are all sacrifices Israel and Turkey are willing to make if it means future oil and gas revenue.

Disintegration of Iraq Will Take Days Now

NEO 30.01.2016 Author: Petr Lvov
As the international community was absorbed by the rapidly changing situation in Syria, where government forces are finally getting an upper hand, the situation in Iraq has slipped the attention of the better part of geopolitical analysts. The rapid developments that are taking place in Iraq may soon lead to the disintegration of the country. In fact, two strongholds of the Sunni population – the Al Anbar Governorate with the provincial capital in Ramadi and the Nineveh Governorate with the provincial capital in Mosul have completely broken away from the federal capital. The fact that the Sunni National Guard forces trained by US instructors have almost completely liberated the town of Ramadi from ISIL militants, after weeks of brutal assaults, is of little help in this situation. Even though the Western coalition deployed special forces from the US, Great Britain, Canada, Turkey and Saudi Arabia to assist the Sunni forces, ISIL retains control over the better part of Sunni populated areas of western and north-western Iraq, while confidently dominating the battlefield.
In this situation the Iraqi government that is largely formed by representatives of Shia politicians are drafting a plan to create Sunni autonomy as a form of concession to Washington and the Sunni forces aligned with it. It is believed that this new autonomy formed by the two above mentioned governorates will largely influence the Kurdistan region as well. The Iraqi government is clearly in a hurry, since it believes that such a region can be formed out of three governorates, this time including the big and important Saladin Governorate with the provincial capital in Tikrit, located some 100 kilometers away from Baghdad. The sheer amount of support that the Islamic State enjoys in this governorate is staggering, but even more support is being enjoyed by the forces that were in power in the days of Saddam Hussein. These forces are being opposed by Shia militia units that have established their headquarters in Samarra. After all Tikrit is the birthplace of Saddam Hussein and Saladin has traditonally been a home to Sunni tribes that used to be the backbone of the Baathist regime long before the US occupation of Iraq. Therefore, Iraqi regular forces against those ISIL groups have rejected the idea of a Sunni autonomy, staying true to the idea of an Islamic Calphiphate that was proclaimed back in 2014.
Thus, rejecting the idea of the sheer presence of Shia regular forces on their territories, Sunni groups decided to form an alliance with ISIL in preparations for the creation on “Sunnitostan,” which at some point would become an independent state.
Neighboring states confirm that the collapse of Iraq has become almost inevitable. In this situation, Turkey decided to play a leading role in the liberation of Mosul from ISIL militants to subsequently hand it over to Iraqi Kurds. As it became known, the Turkish security services have started preparing an uprising in Mosul against the Islamic State, which should help the Sunnis, especially those fighting on the side of the federal Iraqi government in the liberation of the second largest city in Iraq. Some of the funds allocated by the Western coalition for this operation are being spent to bribe ISIL commanders that are entrusted with the defense of Mosul. Many of those are former officers of the Iraqi military forces under Saddam Hussein, therefore, they have little to no ideological ties with radical Islamists Moreover, after the launch of Russia’s military campaign in Syria that led to the destruction to the oil infrastructure occupied by ISIL, revenue that ISIL militants have been getting on a monthly basis has been cut by more than half.

Principles of Debt Slavery
The West Is Reduced To Looting Itself — Paul Craig Roberts
January 30, 2016
I, Michael Hudson, John Perkins, and a few others have reported the multi-pronged looting of peoples by Western economic institutions, principally the big New York Banks with the aid of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Third World countries were and are looted by being inticed into development plans for electrification or some such purpose. The gullible and trusting governments are told that they can make their countries rich by taking out foreign loans to implement a Western-presented development plan, with the result being sufficient tax revenues from economic development to service the foreign loan.
Seldom, if ever, does this happen. What happens is that the plan results in the country becoming indebted to the limit and beyond of its foreign currency earnings. When the country is unable to service the development loan, the creditors send the IMF to tell the indebted government that the IMF will protect the government’s credit rating by lending it the money to pay its bank creditors. However, the conditions are that the government take necessary austerity measures so that the government can repay the IMF. These measures are to curtail public services and the government sector, reduce public pensions, and sell national resources to foreigners. The money saved by reduced social benefits and raised by selling off the country’s assets to foreigners serves to repay the IMF.
This is the way the West has historically looted Third World countries. If a country’s president is reluctant to enter into such a deal, he is simply paid bribes, as the Greek governments were, to go along with the looting of the country the president pretends to represent.
When this method of looting became exhausted, the West bought up agricultural lands and pushed a policy on Third World countries of abandoning food self-sufficiency and producing one or two crops for export earnings. This policy makes Third World populations dependent on food imports from the West. Typically the export earnings are drained off by corrupt governments or by foreign purchasers who pay little while the foreigners selling food charge much. Thus, self-sufficiency is transformed into indebtedness.
With the entire Third World now exploited to the limits possible, the West has turned to looting its own. Ireland has been looted, and the looting of Greece and Portugal is so severe that it has forced large numbers of young women into prostitution. But this doesn’t bother the Western conscience.

Travails of a Bankrupt Hegemon

NEO 17.01.2016 Author: F. William Engdahl
Slightly more than seven decades ago, when the United Nations was officially founded in San Francisco, there was no question in the world about who was the Great Power, the World Hegemon. Today the situation has radically altered to the severe disadvantage of Washington and her ability to dictate terms to the rest of the world in economics, politics, and the greatly-misused expression “human rights and democracy-building.” That disadvantage may, ironically, be a blessing in disguise for us all.
In 1945, the United States Federal Reserve controlled the overwhelming majority of the world’s monetary gold. As war approached in Europe in 1939, European gold flooded into the United States for safety. In 1935 US official gold reserves were valued at just over $9 billion. By 1940 after the onset of war in Europe, it had leapt to $20 billion. As desperate European countries sought to finance their war effort, their gold went to the United States to purchase essential goods. By the time of the June 1944 international monetary conference at Bretton Woods, the United States Federal Reserve controlled fully 70% of world monetary gold, a staggering advantage in what was then a Bretton Woods Gold Exchange System with the US dollar at its heart. That wasn’t even calculating the captured gold of the defeated Axis powers of Germany or Japan, where exact facts and data are buried in layers of deception and rumor to this day.
To grasp the full dimension of the internal crisis and foreign policy dilemmas facing Washington today, it’s useful to go back to the nature of the immediate postwar “triumphalism” of US policy circles in the wake of their emergence from the war.
An ‘American Empire’ emerges
One influential geopolitical thinker of the postwar American Century, sometimes referred to as “the first Cold Warrior,” was James Burnham. During the war he had been one of Wild Bill Donovan’s US Government intelligence operatives in the pre-CIA intelligence operation called Office of Strategic Services (OSS). Burnham was one of many American Trotskyist Marxists recruited by the US intelligence. After the war, Burnham, swung from far left to far right, much as fellow former Trotskyist, Irving Kristol, the so-called Godfather of the neo-cons. Burnham together with William F. Buckley, Jr. founded the arch-conservative National Review to propagate Cold War anti-Soviet missives and pro-free market propaganda, invariably serving the foreign policy agenda of the CIA and State Department.
In 1947 Burnham wrote a major paean to America’s new world power titled The Struggle for the World. The book was adapted from a Top Secret OSS memo Burnham had prepared for the US Delegation to Yalta about the Soviet geopolitical strategy in 1944.
Burnham described in the most positive terms what he called, “an American Empire which will be, if not literally worldwide in formal boundaries, capable of exercising decisive world control.” This is what Time-Life magazine founder, Henry Luce in his 1941 essay termed, “The American Century.”
Burnham’s vision and recommendations for his American world control were stark and unequivocal:
The United States cannot within the allotted time win the leadership of a viable world political order merely by appeals to rational conviction…Power must be there, with the known readiness to use it, whether in the indirect form of paralyzing economic sanctions, or in the direct explosion of bombs. As the ultimate reserve in the power series there would be the monopoly control of atomic weapons.

The Globalist Plan to take-down the whole World

By Preston James, Ph.D Nov 17, 2015
A sinister Globalist plan to generate Worldwide Chaos and Destruction is now being rolled out by the World's largest Organized Crime Cabal. It is time to fully expose its top leaders and its actual agenda so that it can be stopped. Right now one man, President Putin has the ability to stop them cold by releasing all the Intel he has on who really attacked America on 9-11-01 and who creates, supports and deploys terror in the World through mercenaries.
by Preston James
[Image] The true Globalist NWO Cabal’s secret Agenda. Order Ab Chaos which just happens to be the secret motto of High Freemasonry. It’s an agenda to deploy chaos, terror, tyranny, war, destruction, mass death and great human suffering and misery all over the World to destroy the Old World Order in order to make room for the New World Order. The New World Order is a new Globalist regime which is based on 24/7 total surveillance, an all powerful secret police and its own army. It’s agenda is to engulf the whole World in its system of complete destruction and thus create their New World Order from the ashes. This process is characterized in the Greek mythology about the Phoenix Bird from ancient Egypt, perhaps dating back to ancient Babylonia.

The core Globalist leaders (you can count on two hands) have been rolling out an occult inter-generational age-old plan to take complete control over the whole World.
They are using a secret, well disguised ancient Babylonian occult “Black Arts” based Agenda to covertly attack the whole World in a well organized effort to take it down step by step, nation by nation, people by people.
If the World ever learns who they are and their secret Agenda to generate Worldwide Chaos and destruction to bring down every nation of the World, step by step, they will be finished.
The Agenda of these Globalists is to establish a NWO System as a tyranny run by them.
To attain this they know that they must completely destroy the Old World Order in order to then be able to bring in a New World Order in its place and this will be their Globalist New World Order.
And these “most evil criminals in history” fully realize that in order to take over the whole World they will eventually need to establish their own centralized massive military forces and secret police power.
Most normal folks would define such crimes against humanity as raw tyranny and psychopathy beyond imagination.
And that is exactly what the system is that these Globalists are trying to engender, Worldwide Tyranny and their own 24/7 surveillance system coordinated together to produce what is best described as a virtual boot in the face of all humanity 24 hours a day, seven days a week with no end ever.
The Globalists’ operating methods are based on careful, systematic efforts to create Chaos in every existing nation and society in order to break down the old natural order.
In this way these Globalists then destroy the existing Natural Order of any society and nation they target for destruction. Once destroyed they install their Black-Magick Occult control matrix in place and create a slave proxy-state for their new Globalist system.
Certainly we now know for certain that the recent massive refugee influx of Islamics from the Mideast into European nations was orchestrated by this Globalist NWO Cabal. George Soros even admitted that he payed for some of the travel expenses of these refugees. And you can bet that recent Gladio-style Intel False-flag attack on Paris on 11-13-15 was also engineered and staged by these Globalist NWO Cabal leaders.
What are the specifics of this incredibly evil Globalist Agenda being used to take down the whole World?:

Professor Carroll Quigley's seminal 1966 Tragedy and Hope provided a lot more context and exposed the Anglo-American Establishment to an unprecedented extent, but stopped short of naming the The Pilgrim Society. Nevertheless, the following brief passage has been cited as a good precis of The Pilgrims and their objectives:
"[The aim of the international bankers was] nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences."

Without tax exempt NGO think tanks, the obscenely wealthy - Black Nobility, bankster families and a few others - would have no idea what to do. I'm surprised nonaligned with zionism terrorists haven't figured this out for themselves.
Wiki kindly lists them and their members. Chase down which septic think tanks the members of the former PNAC zionist think tank occupy and it is easy to see which, alongside Rand and the Trilateral Comm are behind our current state of mayhem and oppression.
Maybe an easier way is to see which advise Chatham Hse, the CFR and ECFR.

The hugely costly CO2 confidence trick
played in pursuit of an acceptable reason for a world gov global tax. And of course profit at the expense of the less wealthy.

Atmospheric CO2 volume is a product of ocean and atm. temperature
THE ACQUITTAL OF CARBON DIOXIDE
by Jeffrey A. Glassman, PhD
Revised 11/16/09; 9/2/13.
ABSTRACT
Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is the product of oceanic respiration due to the well-known but under-appreciated solubility pump. Carbon dioxide rises out of warm ocean waters where it is added to the atmosphere. There it is mixed with residual and accidental CO2, and circulated, to be absorbed into the sink of the cold ocean waters. Next the thermohaline circulation carries the CO2-rich sea water deep into the ocean. A millennium later it appears at the surface in warm waters, saturated by lower pressure and higher temperature, to be exhausted back into the atmosphere.
Throughout the past 420 millennia, comprising four interglacial periods, the Vostok record of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration is imprinted with, and fully characterized by, the physics of the solubility of CO2 in water, along with the lag in the deep ocean circulation. Notwithstanding that carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, atmospheric carbon dioxide has neither caused nor amplified global temperature increases. Increased carbon dioxide has been an effect of global warming, not a cause. Technically, carbon dioxide is a lagging proxy for ocean temperatures. When global temperature, and along with it, ocean temperature rises, the physics of solubility causes atmospheric CO2 to increase. If increases in carbon dioxide, or any other greenhouse gas, could have in turn raised global temperatures, the positive feedback would have been catastrophic. While the conditions for such a catastrophe were present in the Vostok record from natural causes, the runaway event did not occur. Carbon dioxide does not accumulate in the atmosphere.

I was wondering what would be the position if all known reserves of petrochemicals were released into the biosphere, does it mean the end of the world? This led to a review of where the world's carbon is. I could not find a comprehensive list anywhere though somebody more capable must have tried before me. The IPCC figures never seem to give a full account. In any case this is the result of my research. I have converted all measures to Pg's (10 to the power 12 times kg's) of carbon. There is no doubt that these figures are only approximate and in a number of cases I have taken what seems the most recent and or most believable. I would be interested to know if you think any numbers are significantly in error. To me they were useful to give a perspective on the issues. Pg's of carbon Natural gas - (known world reserves) 90 Oil - (known world reserves) 128 Coal - (known worlds reserves) 836
World petrochemical reserves 1,054
Atmosphere 543 Living organisms 664 Soil 2,000 Oceans - dissolved organic carbon 3,000 - dissolved inorganic carbon above thermocline 7,000 - dissolved inorganic carbon below thermocline 28,000 Carbon in biosphere 41,207
Calcite deposited over the last 500m years in limestone 6,132,000
Total world carbon 6,174,261
Natural circulation of CO2 within Biosphere say 500 Pg's per annum Anthropogenic CO2 say 5 - 10 Pg's per annum
Having seen this I was no longer concerned about the biosphere being able to cope with anthropogenic CO2. More of an issue is how long the carbon will last us.

GAVIN SCHMIDT'S RESPONSE TO THE ACQUITTAL OF CO2 SHOULD SOUND THE DEATH KNELL FOR AGW
http://rocketscientistsjournal.com/2006/11/gavin_schmidt_on_the_acquittal.html

ON WHY CO2 IS KNOWN NOT TO HAVE ACCUMULATED IN THE ATMOSPHERE & WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH CO2 IN THE MODERN ERA
by Jeffrey A. Glassman, PhD
Revised 3/14/10.
Myles Goodman at Drexel posted the following question as a comment to the Acquittal of Carbon Dioxide:
You posit that CO2 does NOT accumulate in the atmosphere. How do you explain atmospheric concentrations of CO2 increasing over the last 100 years?
The Acquittal shows that carbon dioxide did not accumulate in the atmosphere during the paleo era of the Vostok ice cores. If it had, the fit of the complement of the solubility curve might have been improved by the addition of a constant. It was not. And because the CO2 presumably still follows the complement of the solubility curve, it should be increasing during the modern era of global warming in recovery from Earth's various ice epochs. These conclusions find support in a number of points in the IPCC reports.
So the answer to the post begins with supporting background on why CO2 is known not to accumulate in the atmosphere, and then goes on to other aspects of the model that global warming causes increases in CO2, which accounts for the last 100 years or so.

John Pilger – From Hiroshima to Syria – the enemy whose name we dare not speak

TruePublica 29th January 2016
This article was written by John Pilger and published September 2013. His work continues to resonate as nothing has changed. Read on …
On my wall is the front page of Daily Express of September 5, 1945 and the words: “I write this as a warning to the world.” So began Wilfred Burchett’s report from Hiroshima. It was the scoop of the century. For his lone, perilous journey that defied the US occupation authorities, Burchett was pilloried, not least by his embedded colleagues. He warned that an act of premeditated mass murder on an epic scale had launched a new era of terror.
Almost every day now, he is vindicated. The intrinsic criminality of the atomic bombing is borne out in the US National Archives and by the subsequent decades of militarism camouflaged as democracy. The Syria psychodrama exemplifies this. Yet again, we are held hostage to the prospect of a terrorism whose nature and history even the most liberal critics still deny. The great unmentionable is that humanity’s most dangerous enemy resides across the Atlantic.
John Kerry’s farce and Barack Obama’s pirouettes are temporary. Russia’s peace deal over chemical weapons will, in time, be treated with the contempt that all militarists reserve for diplomacy. With Al-Qaida now among its allies, and US-armed coupmasters secure in Cairo, the US intends to crush the last independent states in the Middle East: Syria first, then Iran. “This operation [in Syria],” said the former French foreign minister Roland Dumas in June, “goes way back. It was prepared, pre-conceived and planned.”
When the public is “psychologically scarred”, as the Channel 4 reporter Jonathan Rugman described the British people’s overwhelming hostility to an attack on Syria, reinforcing the unmentionable is made urgent. Whether or not Bashar al-Assad or the “rebels” used gas in the suburbs of Damascus, it is the US not Syria that is the world’s most prolific user of these terrible weapons. In 1970, the Senate reported, “The US has dumped on Vietnam a quantity of toxic chemical (dioxin) amounting to six pounds per head of population”. This was Operation Hades, later renamed the friendlier Operation Ranch Hand: the source of what Vietnamese doctors call a “cycle of foetal catastrophe”. I have seen generations of young children with their familiar, monstrous deformities. John Kerry, with his own blood-soaked war record, will remember them. I have seen them in Iraq, too, where the US used depleted uranium and white phosphorous, as did the Israelis in Gaza, raining it down on UN schools and hospitals. No Obama “red line” for them. No showdown psychodrama for them.
The repetitive debate about whether “we” should “take action” against selected dictators (i.e. cheer on the US and its acolytes in yet another aerial killing spree) is part of our brainwashing. Richard Falk, emeritus professor of international law and UN Special Rapporteur on Palestine, describes it as “a self-righteous, one-way, legal/moral screen [with] positive images of Western values and innocence portrayed as threatened, validating a campaign of unrestricted political violence”. This “is so widely accepted as to be virtually unchallengeable”.

Washington’s Secret War in Syria Uncovered

NEO 01.02.2016 Author: Vladimir Odintsov
The CIA and the intelligence agencies of several US allies in the Middle Eastern conflicts have recently been uncovered by the New York Times. The newspaper cites a number of unnamed White House officials that point out that Saudi Arabia has been keeping the role that Washington played in different conflicts throughout the region a secret. Moreover, Saudi officials have been heavily sponsoring US regional engagement, financing operations carried out by American special forces units.
The New York Times notes that “business” relations between the CIA and Saudi Arabia can be traced back to the end of 1970s, when sheikhs from Riyadh organized the so-called Safari Club - “a coalition of nations including Morocco, Egypt and France — that ran covert operations around Africa at a time when Congress had clipped the C.I.A.’s wings over years of abuses.”
There’s little doubt that this step was followed by the funding of CIA operations in Afghanistan, Angola and other parts of the world, and the subsequent creation of Al-Qaeda, the Islamic State and the likes of them, that have been heavily supplied with arms and money.
As for the war in Syria, the CIA and Saudi Arabia back in 2013 agreed to conduct a joint operation under the codename: Timber Sycamore, the prime goal of which was the toppling of the legitimately elected Syrian president. Under this agreement, the Saudis have been providing arms and resources, while the CIA trained “insurgents” before deploying to the battlefield. The newspaper names other “sponsors” of the CIA campaign: Turkey, Jordan and Qatar. Although the exact amount of the “contribution” of each of the states to the secret operation in Syria remains unknown, it is mentioned that Saudi Arabia has been one of the main sponsors, providing billions of dollars.

Falling from High Places

NEO 01.02.2016 Author: Janet Phelan
“What you have to understand, John, is that sometimes there are forces and events too big, too powerful, with so much at stake for other people or institutions, that you cannot do anything about them, no matter how evil or wrong they are and no matter how dedicated or sincere you are or how much evidence you have. This is simply one of the hard facts of life you have to face.” - Former CIA director William Colby giving advice to his friend senator John DeCamp, urging to quit his investigations into the Franklin child abuse affair and to write a book about his experiences (The Franklin Coverup, 2nd edition, foreword).
It would seem that the four nuclear scientists massacred by “mysterious gunmen” in the outskirts of Damascus back in 2014 constitute a common occurrence that nobody notices in the middle of a warzone, but it turns out that certain political forces in the West have no more respect to the lives of their own creme-de-la-creme of the scientific and journalist worlds.
When Fox news producer Martin Burns inexplicably fell off a cliff in August of 2013, the shock waves through the legal reform community were palpable. Burns had been deeply involved in the production of a Fox 11 (Los Angeles) news series, Lost in the System, exposing corruption in Los Angeles Family Court proceedings.
According to court watcher Malinda Sherwyn, who had been working closely with Burns on the research end of the series, “We were working on evidence concerning kids who had been molested and raped. We were sending to Burns court records, medical records concerning kids who had been attacked in their homes, and what Department of Child and Family Services and the courts then did with this evidence.”
Malinda Sherwyn does not believe that Martin Burns had a simple accident. According to Sherwyn, Fox dropped the series in panic and some of the evidence she was sending Burns never aired. However, multiple episodes did make it onto the news program prior to Burns’ death.
“I contacted Gina Silva (reporter on the Lost in the System series) and asked her if she were scared,” recalls Sherwyn. “Gina said yes, she was. I asked her if she thought that Martin fell off the cliff and she said, I just can’t believe it.”
Gina Silva did not respond to calls from this reporter.
According to the legend of Icarus, who constructed wings to flee airborne from Crete, his father Daedalus warned him of hubris—extreme pride and self-confidence—and warned him not to fly too close to the sun. Icarus ignored his father’s advice and plunged into the ocean. The Icarus legend is seen to have metaphorical implications for those who may get too close to sources of power.
Falling from high places seems to be an end state plaguing a number of former researchers. When John F. Kennedy Jr.’s plane crashed in 1999, many felt the Kennedy curse was again activated. Some, however, saw a more insidious hand at play.
Although Kennedy had repeatedly stated that he was not interested in a career in politics, just prior to his death, Kennedy was considered to be a frontrunner for the New York Senate seat vacated by Daniel Moynihan.There were subsequently persistent rumors that Kennedy had planned to use the platform of his magazine, George, to expose who was behind the assassination of his father, President John F.Kennedy.
Far less famous individuals have also fallen to their deaths in circumstances that could only be considered suspicious. In 2004, when Dr. Geetha Angara’s body was found in a water tank at her workplace in New Jersey water treatment plant, her husband demanded a thorough police investigation. Angara was a chemist who calibrated the drinking water quality in the facility’s tanks. Reportedly, the Department of Homeland Security had recently held seminars at the plant.
The police came up empty handed.
After ten years, her homicide case may be reopened. Her husband, Jaya Angara, told this reporter he was aware of reports implicating Homeland Security with deliberate water ?ontamination and that he did not know if his wife had voiced concerns about this.

Miliband, enthusiast for population decimation so long as it isn't useless eaters like him that get

The International Rescue Committee: A Trojan Horse of the Globalists?
by Martin Edwards UK Column 19th January 2016
David Miliband, president of a New York based refugee "charity" supported by hefty donations from George Soros amongst others, is paid a staggering £425,000 per annum. What do we know of Miliband and his International Rescue Committee?
On the 6th November 2013, the International Rescue Committee honoured George Soros with its "Freedom Award" for what David Miliband described as Soros' "tremendous commitment to the advancement of human rights, social justice and democracy around the world."
In their annoucement of the award, IRC described Open Society, of which George Soros is founder and chairman, as "an especially valuable partner because of its willingness to invest in flexible, strategic or higher-risk activities—including assessments, pilot projects and fledgling efforts—that enable the IRC to test and scale up the most effective and efficient programs."
George Soros is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
What are the objectives of the Council on Foreign Relations?
The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) declares publicly that it is "an independent, non-partisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher". The following quotation is attributed to David Rockefeller, Honorary Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations.
"We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and their great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government." He continued:
The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.
According to Rockefeller's preferred vision, where are we most likely to find 'an intellectual elite and world bankers' operating? Although the above quote was allegedly made at a Bilderberg Group meeting, it perhaps suggests that under his chairmanship, honourary or not, the CFR is covertly pursuing an altogether different strategy to that of "an independent, non-partisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher".
John F. McManus, in Behind the Obama Agenda (2008), made the observation that "no other organization comes close to boasting the kind of clout that the CFR members have held: eight presidents of the U.S.; seven vice presidents; 17 secretaries of state; 20 secretaries of war/defense; 18 secretaries of the Treasury; 15 directors of the CIA."

Zionist freemason David Miliband is of Rockefeller (Pilgrims) Trilateral Commission. I wonder how many of the IRC are Pilgrims, certainly some of the CFR are.

Jews are educated to believe they aren't human

Seems that ALL major charities give their bottom to the Anglo-US zionist - neocon OWG agenda, from Rothschild's Red Cross, Rockefeller's WHO to Bilderberg's (E. Commission's) Common Purpose.

Jews in the 'cuckoo in the nest' country are educated to believe they aren't human and that killing humans is not a sin. Hence the IDF using Palestinian kids for target practice. The apartheid Israeli regime supports terrorists and the bombing of human civilians.
Remember this next time the zionist occupation regime of the day asks our DEFENCE forces to aggressively kill HUMANS, not jews in another country.
"Why fight them ourselves when we can get them to fight each other?"
Saud's mass murder of Yemenis, Syrians, Lebanese and Iraqis is supported (driven?) by the Israeli regime and its IDF, the occupation regime in Britain and our DEFENCE forces and the Commonwealth, the same for the occupation regime in the US, Canada, Austarlia, NZ and their defence forces, along with collaborator corporations like Acadami (nee Blackwater) and the zio Pilgrims run MSM.
Overseen by Bilderberg and NATO.

Funded by 'misappropriated' taxes, (stolen, imo).
