According to Richard S. Patterson and Richardson Dougall, Annuit coeptis (meaning “favours our undertakings”) and the other motto on the reverse of the Great Seal, Novus ordo seclorum (meaning “new order of the ages”) can both be traced to lines by the Roman poet Virgil.
“The imperial reduced projection from 500k to 20k is in line with comments from me & others when they announced it”, said #Piers#Corbyn himself an #ImperialCollege graduate. “I’m sure their model is good but the assumptions in given input data were OTT”. https://t.co/r6V77lsnct
Before we look at the article perhaps a bit of “back grounding” and a gentle reminder why we have the mess in the first place. Just two weeks ago I completed reading the “Green Zone”. You have probably heard of the movie with Jason Bourne and the hunt for the WMD. The movie is of course fictional but the story-line was conceived from a screenplay written by Brian Helgeland, based on a 2006 non-fiction book Imperial Life in the Emerald City by journalist Rajiv Chandrasekaran. The book documented life within the Green Zone in Baghdad during the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
Drawing on interviews and first hand experience the book demonstrates the absurdity, incompetence, cronyism and downright criminality involved by the US-led Coalition Provisional Authority. One critic calls it, “a tragic tale of naivety,hubris, waste and wilful ignorance”.
Following 9/11, Dick Cheney was instrumental in providing a primary justification for a renewed war against Iraq. Cheney helped shape Bush’s approach to the “War on Terror”. Cheney is the poster boy for neoconservative hubris. A member of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) he was also formerly the CEO of Halliburton.
Christian Bale recently portrayed him in an autobiographical movie. At the awards he “Thanked SATAN” for giving him inspiration for portraying Cheney. The criminality, arrogance and stupidity of these people is rightly represented by the likes of Cheney.
This is what “freedom” looks like
The neoconservatives still refuse to admit to any mistakes. In the famous words of Shrub “Mission Accomplished”
However, all the “gloating” aside on how easy it was to destroy and kill people with superior technology it will suffice to look at these slides and remind ourselves what a “liberated” Iraq looks like.
This should make the warmongers hang their heads in shame.
Debunking the Story
After all that has happened we would say that the Iraqi people had the right to protest – especially the disenfranchised youth. But who is killing both the protesters and the police? The article (and the MSM) would have us believe that it is IRAN. Here are the facts:
The current unrest in Iraq began a week ago after a prominent general was removed from his post
US gave a travel warning for Iraq one week before the protests
Iraqi Government supportive of Iran
Location of protests near area where Iranians make cross border pilgrimage for up coming holy days
Perhaps the best articles for debunking the scenario are:
The Unz review is usually pretty good but this story looks like propaganda. This article seeks to blame Iran and the Iraqi Government. This is “blow-back” because the US actually allowed Iraqis to vote. The majority Shiite population voted for an Iraqi government sympathetic to Iran. Oh dear, if only they had left Saddam in power, at least he suppressed the Shiites. Well I suppose you can’t fix neocon stupid. Seems like even Satan has his limitations. The internet has been taken out in this area, so we have no way to confirm anything but it appears the current government of Iraq is under siege. With Turkey kicking the USA out of Northern Syria it seems that Iraq has similar ideas (removing the US). Is the current government opposing US perpetual occupation? Perhaps that is why we are seeing protests and another regime change is on the cards.
Saw the movie Enemy of the State (again) recently and noticed that the crooked NSA chief was born on 9/11 (1940). Probably coincidence. But this one from the Matrix is spooky. Neo’s passport runs out on 9/11/2001 the day the twin towers fell. The character Neo in the matrix films is “the one” (Chosen one like Trump?) who can bring literal freedom to the remaining human’s. Effectively if this were an intentional subliminal places into the film… it’s saying that freedom expires on the 11th September 2001. Bring into question the bills on extradition, terrorism suspicion, NDAA and all the other stuff made-up since the 9/11 attacks…
The movie was released in 1999. This date does seem to come up a lot in Hollywood movies. Perhaps movie executives were asked to promote it because was the national emergency number? Perhaps it is a subliminal psy-op? Perhaps it is an in-joke among the psychos to show how clever they are. Or, perhaps I need a straight-jacket and a tin-foil hat?(LOL)
Every night we will tell you a new fairy tale. This time it is not Sinbad or Ali-Baba and the forty thieves (though it might involve Ali-Bibi and the forty thieves). Suffice to say that this tale is also meant to put you to sleep.
Surveying the Damage
Every good fairy tale book comes with nice pictures…..here follow the images:
And now a news rapport on how the repairs are going:
Now have a look at this website that I discovered. It claims that the Saudis have confirmed that missiles were fired from the Iraq-Kuwait border region and that one of the cruise missile engines found having been manufactured by NATO member Czech Republic military rocket producer. Look at the images….
O’Brien talked about US “hostages” held in Tehran’s Evin prison.“Could we secure, could we send in a couple of ranger battalions and secure the neighborhood and send in one of our sabre teams and breach the prison and get our folks out? We could do that,” he stated. O’Brien acknowledged that “there would be a tremendous cost that goes along with it, establishing an air corridor, basically going to war with Iran.”
“So, that would fall under everything we can, and we’re not doing that at this point,” he added. “Although that is something we potentially could do.”
So, just days before assuming his new White House post, O’Brien postulated that the US could go to war with Iran to secure the release of a small number of people. Amnesty International has reported that conditions in Evin prison are “inhumane and unsanitary” and that abuses including torture take place. The human rights organization has also recently pointed to the “horrific human rights violations” including torture committed by the United States at its Guantánamo Bay military prison.
Additionally, it has condemned breaches of international law and “callous and dehumanizing” practices at a federal super-maximum security prison in the United States. The use of solitary confinement in prisons across the country is described by Amnesty as a “shocking abuse.”
The US has consistently blocked United Nations human rights investigators from gaining access to its prisons.It is also difficult to imagine what the American response would be to a foreign power even contemplating a military invasion to free prisoners held in dire conditions by the United States.
The plight of Americans held in Iran is nevertheless serious.
But talking about war with Iran is incredibly dangerous. In addition to the potential devastation and loss of life, it would be illegal and would throw the region into deeper turmoil – perhaps surpassing the chaos unleashed in the aftermath of the Bush-Cheney war on Iraq. O’Brien’s statement in Israel goes far beyond a 5 September tweet in which he noted that the US is “closely monitoring the conditions for Americans wrongfully detained by Iran in Evin prison.” He added that prison officials “are responsible for the detainees’ safety” and that “the world is watching.”
100 years ago, the Brits hired a warlord then living in Kuwait to conquer the Southern part of the Semite Kingdom (aka: Hashemite Kingdom) and the Northern part of historical Yemen, and what they did then, makes what Israel is doing now to the Palestinians, look like a walk in the park. 100 years ago, there were 5,000 followers of #Wahhabi /ism, and the Brits, through their huge sponsorship of the warlord and his Wahhabi teachings created the serge we know today as “The Outhouse of Sod”
Perhaps you are completely confused by now and I don’t blame you. Part of the problem is information overload and they want you to be confused so that you will turn to the mainstream narrative. A war is being fought for your mind. It is a propaganda war and you need to treat everything skeptically and critically. To simplify:
Option 1 – it was perpetrated by Saudi or Israel, with no obvious consequences.
Option 2 – it was perpetrated by Iran or Yemen, who now possess impressive skills.
And either the Saudi radar operators were asleep, which is very likely, or the equipment is not fit for purpose, which is equally likely.
Remark 1: Saudi is a dead man walking…..the oil regions (Eastern provinces) are chock full of Shiites. Whatever happened it seems that attacks on the ground were part of the scenario (disaffected KSA Shiites). KSA has about 15-20% Shia population and is primarily concentrated in the country’s Eastern province, you know where the latest oil facility was blown up. It also looks like they also want to cover the fact that they are running out of oil and therefore sell of Aramco quickly.
Remark 2: If it was a false flag why did the Houthi’s claim the attack? To take the heat of Iran and embarrass KSA? By claiming responsibility they would slow down any plans to ramp this into an Iranian war.
As usual nothing is clear. However…..we do know a few things for certain.
Incontrovertible rock solid evidence that Iran attacked the innocent Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) for no reason at all. Al-Malki said a total of 18 drones and seven missiles were launched, including what he called Iranian Delta Wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
These missiles and drones traveled undetected from Iran over the Gulf waters passing over the US and UK armada and dozens of oil transports and other supply ships without being spotted. Then they struck the oil storage tanks from the opposite direction with perfect precision. Luckily the storage tanks did not explode because they were empty…but they gave off lots of smoke. This will shut down KSA production for months, possibly for years and push prices higher.
Actually, the fires have all been extinguished in less than a week. The damage seems to be minimal.
Oil output will be fully back online by end of September, Aramco IPO on track, Saudis say
The missiles and drones were not fired by Iran but by Houthi’s (if you believe that) but they were made by Iran and supplied by Iran therefore Iran is behind the attack. But who supplies KSA with its weapons with which it attacks Yemen??
The KSA held a conference to show the world its incontrovertible evidence:
And now exit center-left, Pomp-ass
Fake, Faker, Falseness
It is quite clear that the you have failed the CIA course that teaches you to “lie, cheat and steal” that you boast is part of the “glory” of the American experiment. Your chariots of glory will be your shame (Isa 22:18) you false Christian.
Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) says it has seized a foreign vessel with 12-crew members carrying one million barrels of oil. In an official Iranian media statement early on Thursday, the country’s military asserted the tanker was caught “smuggling” the fuel through the Strait of Hormuz.
The ship’s registered owner, Dubai-based Prime Tankers LLC, told the AP it had sold the ship to another company called Mouj Al-Bahar. A man who answered a telephone number registered to the firm told the AP it didn’t own any ships. The Emirati official said the ship was “neither UAE owned nor operated” and carried no Emirati personnel, without elaborating. If they were smuggling that would explain why there wasn’t any distress signal and why the UAE has forsworn any knowledge or responsibility for the vessel.
So, does it belong to the UAE or to Panama (even the UK has been suggested)?
A phantom drone and a phantom ship up to no good….who would have thunk it?
It is better not to believe any of it. The war drums are beating and as long as they can paint a picture of a lawless, aggressive Iran that is believed by 80% of the public they will have done a good job of preparing public sentiment for the need to intervene and make the world safe for us all.
Iran will not be imploding economically. Last Friday, Russia signalled its commitment to secure Iran’s oil and banking sectors, should the EU’s pathetic INSTEX mechanism is not effective by 7 of July.Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Friday that Moscow is ready to help Iran export its crude and ease restrictions on its banking system should Europe fail to make INSTEX a viable mechanism. China too, has stated that “normal energy dealings” with Tehran are in accordance with law, and should be respected. The Central Bank of Iran said this week that Iran has climbed past the peak of sanctions and oil exports are on the rise again.The nonsensical notion of Iran on the cusp of collapse is a meme being peddled by various ignorant and diluted Iranian exiles looking for a job in DC as “experts” on Iran, the MEK terrorist cult with membership largely limited to its now aging pool of members who had originally joined the group in the 1970’s and the 1980’s, US prominent hawks, and Netanyahu, the war criminal that pushed for the 2003 illegal Invasion of Iraq with his lies in US Congress. The only solution for Trump is a humiliating journey of return to the JCPOA, and a hope to call the defeat as ‘victory’. President Putin will educate Trump in regards to this ancient, 8,000 years old civilization; “Iran”.
Russia’s National Security Advisor Nikolai Patrushev made it clear in his remarks that Russia stands behind Iran and that it will not tolerate any more aggression by the US. “In the context of the statements made by our partners with regard to a major regional power, namely Iran, I would like to say the following: Iran has always been and remains our ally and partner, with which we are consistently developing relations both on bilateral basis and within multilateral formats,” Patrushev said after the trilateral meeting. “This is why we believe that it is inadmissible to describe Iran as a major threat to regional security and, moreover, to put it on par with the Islamic State or any other terrorist organization,” Patrushev stated.
John Bolton Flies to Israel to Apologize for Not Bombing Iran, Says He Will Do It Soon.
This is a funny video, Bibi says that it is Iran that is on a campagin of aggression They stirred up the trouble in Syria? They destroyed Libya etc? This is palpably a false narrative. Question: Who started all this with the twin towers? Whatever your theory might be…..one thing is certain it was not Iran (and it was not Saddam). Who benefits?
John Bolton stood in front of an Israeli flag at a podium identifying him as an employee of the Prime Minister of Israel.
“Neither Iran nor any other hostile actor should mistake U.S. prudence and discretion for weakness,” Bolton said. “No one has granted them a hunting license in the Middle East.”
He spoke in Jerusalem alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Bolton said he is in the Middle East for previously scheduled meetings with Israeli and Russian security advisors. And he warned Iran that the U.S. remains a formidable adversary. “Our military is rebuilt, new and ready to go,” Bolton said.
In a Fox News video published on You Tube on Jul 24, 2018, Tucker Carlson argued that an Iran war would destroy Trump’s presidency. Retired Army Colonel Douglas MacGregor warned that such a war would have wider implications dragging in Russia and China  and warned (nearly a year ago) that the Neo-Conservatives would use a “Gulf of Tonkin” false flag attack as an excuse for war.  PressTVUK has produced a good video that lays out the events in a sequential manner and analyses them critically. 
Israeli News Live
Israeli News Live has a perceptive analysis that adds a lot more intelligence information. Over the past decade, Bolton has endorsed regime change in Tehran at the hands of the People’s Mujahedeen of Iran (MEK) an extremely marginal group with no support inside Iran but some support in the Diaspora. Only in 2012 did the State Department delist the MEK as a terrorist group, which is ironic in light of the fact that they recently listed the IRG (Iranian Republican Guard) as terrorists. In other words MEK has been restored to favour to foment trouble. Both Bolton and Rudy Giuliani (from Trump’s inner circle) have spoken at MEK events at home and abroad and last fall Rudy Giuliani told Iranian dissidents in Times Square that regime change is “going to happen.” According to the video it is these MEK dissidents that purchased Iranian patrol boats to conduct the false flag. If this is correct then it bears uncanny echoes of the story related by journalist Seymour Hersh regarding a brain-storming session conducted with Neocons and Vice President Dick Cheney where it was proposed to build fake Iranian patrol boats and man them with disguised Seals for a false flag attack.  Of course, the CENTCOM video could be a simple rescue mission (as suggested on a previous post). There are many reasons to regard the official narrative as suspect.
Another interesting and under-reported fact is the Mysterious Blazes on Six Iranian Ships in Iranian Ports  which according to the video was the work of mercenary frogmen hired by Saudi Arabia in response to the Houthi sabotage of their pipeline.
The retired American Politician Ron Paul says that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s rush to judgement that Iran was behind the apparent attacks on two tanker ships last week has not galvanized world opinion against Iran, as the neocons hoped. Instead, it was met with high scepticism even among Washington’s closest allies. Has the neocon practice of massively exaggerating and endlessly issuing threats finally destroyed US credibility on the world stage?
