“A think-tank run by the Tony Blair Faith Foundation”

You can’t make this stuff up!

Tony BlairLord-Janner-Tony-BlairTony Blair, Cardinal Edward Egan

“The report warned that if IS is defeated, it may give impetus for terrorist attacks outside of Syria under a rallying cry that “the West destroyed the caliphate.””

65,000 jihadists in Syria ready to replace ISIS if it’s defeated – report:

The West is making a strategic mistake by focusing its anti-terrorist effort on Islamic State (IS. previously ISIS/ISIL) and overlooking other groups, an upcoming report claims. Sixty percent of fighters in the country can be classified as Islamists and have goals similar to IS.

Those fighters belong to at least 15 other militant groups, which are mostly being ignored by the West, British media cited the Centre on Religion & Geopolitics, a think-tank run by the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, as saying. Continue reading »

Looks like the predictions – that I’ve mentioned earlier – about Turkey and Russia are coming to pass.


“Let Them Fly There Now”: Putin Threatens To Shoot Down Turkish Jets In Syria, Calls Erdogan An Ass Kisser:

It’s been nearly a month since Turkey shot down a Russian Su-24 in what not only represented the most serious escalation to date in Syria’s five year conflict but also marked the first time a NATO member has engaged a Russian or Soviet aircraft in at least six decades.

The “incident” – which came several weeks after Ankara downed what certainly appeared to be a Russian drone – infuriated The Kremlin, setting off a war of words that culminated in a lengthy presentation by the Russian MoD which purported to prove that illicit Islamic State oil flows through Turkey. Both Putin and a number of other Russian officials have implicated Erdogan and his family in the trafficking of illegal crude and there’s speculation that Ankara’s brazen move to fire on the Russian warplane stemmed from Erdogan’s desire to “punish” Russia for disrupting what Deputy Minister of Defence Anatoly Antonov sarcastically called “a brilliant family business.”  Continue reading »

The Missing Islamic State Link: A Documented CIA Connection:

What we do know is one of the most important spies in the CIA, one with a major role in the Near East (probably Iraq), definitely was retained as a lobbyist by Sulayman.  And Sulayman retained him to “create an autonomous Sunni region in Iraq or an independent Sunni State.”  In other words, destroy Iraq by formally creating and recognizing Sunni-Jihadi-stan.  Or a safe-zone for Sunni terrorists.  Or what it actually is, a caliphate.  It was recently written in the Washington Post that many Shia Iraqis harbor the conspiratorial belief the US created the Islamic State to destroy Iraq.  Conspiracy theory becomes conspiracy fact.

Turkish MP faces treason charges after telling RT ISIS used Turkey for transiting sarin:

A treason investigation has been launched against a Turkish MP who alleged in an exclusive interview with RT that Islamic State jihadists delivered deadly sarin gas to Syria through Turkey.

Ankara’s Chief Prosecutor’s Office opened the case against Istanbul MP Eren Erdem of Republican People’s Party (CHP) after his interview about sarin was aired on RT on Monday.

“Chemical weapon materials were brought to Turkey and put together in ISIS camps in Syria, which was known as the Iraqi Al-Qaeda at that time.”

The Norwegian Police Immigration Service (PU) has been dealing with an explosion in the number of refugees and migrants wishing to cross its borders in recent months. While searching asylum seekers, they also came across photos of dead children and other victims of war and terrorism, Nettavisen reports. Continue reading »

H/t reader squodgy:

“Organised chaos, civil unrest, Government failure leading to Martial Law.

It looks like Turkey could well be the tinderbox for the big one. But Erdogan seems to have all the right tackle as long as the wind’s in the right direction.

I recall Jane Burgermeister’s analysis of what ‘they’ (the elite) have planned for the rest of us….viral & bacterial releases via vaccines & mysterious ‘outbreaks’. She was adamant, and now we have another engineered mutation of yet another virus (SARS) on top of the Erasmus created Bird Flu (H7N9), with its 50% success fatality rate, the opportunity is really opening up as we the people awaken.”


Turkey Smuggled Sarin Gas to Al Qaeda Terrorists in Syria? Turkish MP:

Turkey is allegedly complicit in the smuggled use of various types of banned chemical weapons for which the Assad government was wrongfully blamed.

Turkish Republican People’s Party (CHP) opposition member Eren Erdem accused Ankara of covering up a major war crime, likely direct high-level involvement in smuggling materials used to make deadly sarin gas to ISIS and other terrorists – US proxy foot soldiers waging war on Syria.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury during President Reagan’s first term. He was Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal. He has held numerous academic appointments, including the William E. Simon Chair, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Georgetown University, and Senior Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University.

The Neoconservatives’ Hegemonic Goal Of Making Sovereign Countries Extinct Is Bringing Instead The Extinction Of Planet Earth:

By Paul Craig Roberts

My warning that the neoconservatives have resurrected the threat of nuclear Armageddon, which was removed by Reagan and Gorbachev, is also being given by Noam Chomsky, former US Secretary of Defense William Perry, and other sentient observers of the neoconservatives’ aggressive policies toward Russia and China.

Daily we observe additional aggressive actions taken by Washington and its vassals against Russia and China. For example, Washington is pressuring Kiev not to implement the Minsk agreements designed to end the conflict between the puppet government in Kiev and the break-away Russian republics. Washington refuses to cooperate with Russia in the war against ISIS. Washington continues to blame Russia for the destruction of MH-17, while preventing an honest investigation of the attack on the Malaysian airliner. Washington continues to force its European vassals to impose sanctions on Russia based on the false claim that the conflict in Ukraine was caused by a Russian invasion of Ukraine, not by Washington’s coup in overthrowing a democratically elected government and installing a puppet answering to Washington.

U.S. Pilots Confirm: Obama Admin Blocks 75 Percent of Islamic State Strikes:

‘We can’t get clearance even when we have a clear target in front of us’

U.S. military pilots who have returned from the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq are confirming that they were blocked from dropping 75 percent of their ordnance on terror targets because they could not get clearance to launch a strike, according to a leading member of Congress.

Strikes against the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) targets are often blocked due to an Obama administration policy to prevent civilian deaths and collateral damage, according to Rep. Ed Royce (R., Calif.), chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Continue reading »

Putin Orders Military To “Immediately Destroy” Any Threat To Russian Forces:

Russian President Vladimir Putin has ratcheted up the rhetoric in what appears to be one step closer to the potential for direct conflict with The West. While not detailing ‘who’ he was focued on, amid the obvious Turkey-Russia tensions, Putin told a session of the Defense Ministry’s collegium that “I order to act extremely tough. Any targets that threaten Russian forces or our infrastructure on the ground should be immediately destroyed.”

During the meeting of the most senior defense officials, ITAR TASS reports that Putin also warned against “those who will again try to organize any provocations against our servicemen.” Continue reading »

US Denies Bombing Assad’s Forces, Blames Russia:

On Sunday, someone bombed an SAA position in eastern Syria killing three of Assad’s soldiers and wounding more than a dozen.

As we reported on Monday, the strike allegedly took place in Paris mastermind Abdelhamid Abaaoud’s old fiefdom of Deir ez Zor. “Syria strongly condemns the act of aggression by the US-led coalition that contradicts the UN Charter on goals and principles,” Damascus said. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent letters to the UN Secretary General and the UN Security Council, stating that the strike “hampers efforts to combat terrorism and proves once again that this coalition lacks seriousness and credibility.” Washington claims to have no idea what Damascus is talking about. “We’ve seen those Syrian reports but we did not conduct any strikes in that part of Deir ez Zor yesterday. So we see no evidence,” coalition spokesman Colonel Steve Warren said. Continue reading »

US-Backed Rebels Fight Turkey-Backed Rebels in Northern Syria:

In what everyone expected would boil down to a proxy war with Russia, US and Turkish officials have been throwing ever-growing numbers of weapons at their favorite rebel factions, nominally bulking them up against ISIS, but also giving them weapons meant to be used against the Syrian military itself.

Proving that nobody can predict just how much these schemes are going to backfire, however, the reports out of northern Syria today suggest that, instead of fighting Russia, or ISIS, or the Assad government, the US-backed factions and the Turkish-backed factions are just fighting one another.

US Air Force Running Out Of Bombs To Drop On ISIS:

Things must be going well in the “war on terror,” as the US Air Force just admitted that it is fast running out of bombs to drop on ISIS after “B-1s have dropped bombs in record numbers.” As ZeeNews reports, Air Force chief of staff General Mark Welsh said as America ramps up its military campaign against the Islamist terror group, the Air Force is now “expending munitions faster than we can replenish them.”

The US Air Force is fast running out of bombs to drop on ISIS targets in Syria and Iraq after its pilots fired off over 20,000 missiles and bombs since the US bombing campaign against the terror group began 15 months ago, its chief has said. As ZeeNews reports, Continue reading »

Why Is Britain Being Prepared For A World War?:

After the outbreak of world war in 1914, many new rules and regulations came to Britain. This is of course understandable given the scale of national security. The most important of these was called the Defence of the Realm Act (DORA), passed on 8 August 1914 which was designed ‘for securing public safety’.

DORA gave the government the power to prosecute anybody whose actions were deemed to ‘jeopardise the success of the operations of His Majesty’s forces or to assist the enemy’. By its nature, this gave the act a very wide interpretation. It regulated virtually every aspect of the British home front and was expanded as the war went on.

At the time, people were banned from loitering near bridges or tunnels or from lighting a bonfire. Whistling in a cab was made illegal in case it was mistaken for an air raid warning. Pub opening hours were reduced as was the alcohol content in drinks. Continue reading »

Caught On Tape: Russia Destroys ISIS Oil Transport Cars, Al-Qaeda Training Camp:

From a reputational perspective, this was a decisively bad week for Turkey. In the immediate aftermath of Ankara’s brazen move to shoot down a Russian Su-24 near the Syrian border, Vladimir Putin accused the country of being complicit in the funding on ISIS.

Those allegations stung, especially in light of the fact that Putin delivered the accusations while sitting right next to Jordan’s King Abdullah. What Turkey didn’t know, however, was that The Kremlin fully intended to launch an all-out PR campaign to implicate Erdogan and his family in the funding of international terrorism.

General Wesley Clark: ISIS Serves Interests Of US Allies Turkey And Saudi Arabia:

“Let’s be very clear: ISIS is not just a terrorist organization; it is a Sunni terrorist organization. That means it blocks and targets Shi’a. And that means it’s serving the interests of Turkey and Saudi Arabia – even as it poses a threat to them.” – Retired Gen. Wesley Clark

Former NATO Supreme Allied Commander General and retired U.S. General Wesley Clark revealed in an interview with CNN that the Islamic State (Daesh, ISIS) remains geostrategically imperative to Sunni nations, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, as they clamor for strategic power over Shi’a nations, Syria, Iraq, and Iran. He explained that “neither Turkey nor Saudi Arabia want an Iran-Iraq-Syria-Lebanon ‘bridge’ that isolates Turkey, and cuts Saudi Arabia off.”

When asked by the CNN host if Russian President Vladimir Putin’s suggestion that Turkey was “aiding ISIS” had any validity, he responded: Continue reading »
