Pensacola Shooting: Mollycoddling the Face of Evil

Saudi Arabia is the nexus of terror.

As should be expected, the government is attempting to stage-manage the shooting at the Pensacola Naval Base. The Pentagon said sailors killed by a Saudi student reportedly angry over the serial murder of Muslims by the US government “showed exceptional heroism and bravery in the face of evil.”

The alleged shooter, Mohammed Alshamrani, shot dead by police, was a Saudi national said to be enrolled in pilot training the Florida naval base. It is the same naval base linked to the supposed 9/11 hijackers.

Sources told ABC News that investigators are working to determine if the shooter was acting out because of religious or ideological reasons or if there was some sort of problem or hostility that developed in the course of the training at Pensacola.

We certainly can’t expect in-depth and omission-free reporting from ABC News and the rest of the state’s propaganda corporate media. It can be said without a doubt Alshamrani had “ideological reasons” for killing Americans. He was a 2nd Lt., an aviation officer in the Saudi military. Although we are told Saudi Arabia is now in the process of modernization, it still clings to its medieval religion, Wahhabism. 

Since the fall of the Ottoman Empire at the end of the First World War and the rise of Ibn Saud, essentially an agent working for British imperial interests in the Middle East, radical Sunni Wahhabism, and its variants have spread around the world, often with the assistance of the CIA. The Saudi people have been relentlessly indoctrinated, not only in regard to fellow Muslims failing to follow the puritanical Wahhabi creed, but also includes non-believers, including Christians and secular Westerners. 

The US national security state exploited Saudi Wahhabism as part of its anti-Soviet fear campaign during the so-called Cold War. “Due to its anti-atheistic and pro-capitalist tenets, Islam in general and Saudi Islam (Wahhabism) in particular became an effective tool in US foreign policy in combating pro-Soviet and anti-Western secular and nationalistic ideologies in the Middle East and the Muslim world at large,” writes the Middle East Institute. 

In pursuing its Cold War agenda in the Middle East, the United States supported the creation of ideologically motivated regional groupings such as the Muslim World League in 1962 (to replace the ill-fated Baghdad Pact), the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) in 1969, and the Islamic Development Bank in 1976—all headquartered in the Saudi province of Hijaz, the home of Islam’s holiest sites. The United States also supported the importation en masse into Saudi Arabia of a large number of Islamist political activists, including members of the Muslim Brotherhood and its offshoot, hizb al-tahrir (the Party of Liberation), who had fled the secular, pro-Soviet regimes in Egypt, Syria, Iraq, and Algeria. The late Saudi King Faysal, the main architect of the pro-Western Islam-inspired policy in the Middle East, put these Muslim émigrés, assisted by some influential scholars from Pakistan, in charge of all levels of the Saudi educational system. 

Meanwhile, the corporate propaganda media would have us believe Alshamrani was “self-radicalized” online, never mind education and public life in Saudi Arabia are dominated by fanatical Sunni Muslims as described and emphasized above. 

This narrative was posted at The New York Times. “U.S. officials are reportedly investigating whether the shooting was an act of terrorism. An official told the Times that Alshamrani did not appear to have any ties to international terror groups and seemed to have self-radicalized,” Daily Beast reported. 

Saudi Arabia is the nexus of international Islamic terrorism, a fact you will not see mentioned in The New York Times, a newspaper infamous for telling lies about Saddam Hussein’s nonexistent WMDs and responsible in part for the murder of a million and a half Iraqis. 

The pattern here is a well-tread path through the carnage of false flag terrorism. The alleged perp was killed by the cops, while other Saudis documenting the murders—visions of dancing Israelis filming the 911 inferno—were arrested and are now under investigation, that is if we can take a twisting and lying corporate propaganda media at its word. 

Recall the hush-hush flights of Saudis out of the country within two days of the 9/11 attacks. The neocon-infested Bush administration refused to answer questions on why possible suspects in the deadliest terror attack on US soil were not held and investigated. Prince Ahmed bin Salman was among them. He was best known, prior to his untimely demise, as a horse racing aficionado and owner of the Kentucky Derby winner War Emblem. He was also connected to al-Qaeda, the US-Saudi-Pakistani nurtured group that got the lucrative—for the military-industrial complex—endless war on manufactured terror rolling. 

The handpicked 9/11 commission, of course, gave the Bush neocons a free pass, stating that they had properly handled the evacuation of the “six chartered flights that rushed scores of Saudi citizens out of the United States after the attacks,” according to The New York Times. 

President Trump allowed Saudis to wriggle off the hook. “King Salman of Saudi Arabia called President Donald Trump to express his condolences over the attack at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida, the president said Friday,” reported USA Today. 

Trump’s initial remarks are a routine formality of the sort we hear in the wake of terror attacks and mass shootings. A subsequent tweet, however, truly entered the realm of the bizarre. 

If we consider the above—Saudi society has been indoctrinated in hate for non-believers, including Americans, for nearly a hundred years—then it makes perfect sense large numbers of Saudis not only hate Americans but are “radicalized” to the point they want to kill them, just like they are killing Zaidi sect Shias in Yemen. 

According to the SITE Intelligence Group, a staunchly pro-Zionist “nonprofit” linked to Israeli intelligence, a “manifesto” was posted prior to the attack. 

Investigators have found what purports to be an online screed written by the shooter and are working to determine if it is legitimate. In it, the writer expresses hatred toward Americans because of crimes against Muslims and humanity as well as US support for Israel.

As the narrative shapes up, Mohammed Alshamrani will be portrayed as a lone wolf terrorist, the six Saudis subsequently arrested will be forgotten, and missing Saudi nationals supposedly connected to the event and reportedly on the radar of the FBI will disappear from a permutational news cycle designed to indoctrinate and distract. 

There appears to be but a lone voice in government calling out Saudi Arabia. The state is now in the process of making certain this “isolationist” never sees the inside of the Oval Office.

Houthis Claim Ambush of Saudis Killed Hundreds

Propaganda or major Saudi defeat? 

It is being reported Houthi fighters, aka Ansarallah, have pulled off a major military offensive against Saudi troops in northern Yemen. 

The ambush follows on the heels of a claimed Houthi missile and drone attack on Saudi Arabia’s Aramco’s Abqaiq facility and the Khurais oilfield earlier this month.

There is no way to tell if this ambush really happened as the Houthis claim. The video shows very few uniformed soldiers, yet plenty of men dressed in traditional Yemeni clothing. 

On the other hand, photos posted to social media show what appear to be Saudi soldiers in military uniforms. 

EFpDzYnUEAE5T_G

Other reports claim the majority of the captured soldiers are Pakistani. 

Pakistani Gen. Raheel Sharif is currently serving as the Commander-In-Chief of the so-called Islamic Military Alliance. If it indeed turns out the Saudis suffered a major defeat, it is likely Sharif will be sent packing to Islamabad.

Sec. Of State Mike Pompeo has yet to release a statement blaming Iran for the embarrassing incident. He may be busy, though, preparing for battle following a subpoena issued by House Democrats itching to impeach Donald Trump.

Houthis and the Lies of the War Street Journal

Houthis are not close to the mullahs in Iran.

There is another twist in the Iran vs. Saudi Arabia narrative, according to the Wall Street Journal. 

The Houthis were never particularly close to the mullahs in Iran, a fact admitted by none other than Foreign Policy, an establishment magazine and website once owned by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (sic), and later the crown jewel of the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird, The Washington Post. The website is run by Democrat “humanitarian interventionists,” so a differing with the neocons is to be expected. 

Until now, and apart from Tehran’s strong pro-Houthi rhetoric, very little hard evidence has turned up of Iranian support to the Houthis. There has been evidence of some small arms shipments and, likely, military advice from Hezbollah and Revolutionary Guard officers, who may have helped the Houthis in firing missiles into Saudi territory and targeting Saudi vessels in the Red Sea. Meanwhile, U.S. and British military and intelligence support to the Saudi-led coalition exceeds by many factors any amount of support the Houthis have received from Tehran.

The War Street Journal story seems to have an attribution issue. However, that’s not a problem for the neocons. They’re accustomed to telling lies and inventing fabrications prior to attacking their enemies, which are Israel’s enemies. The WSJ did its part, along with WaPo and NYT, to demonize Saddam Hussein, provide cover for the invasion of his country, and have him hanged. Ditto Muammar Gaddafi sodomized with a bayonet. 

On Sunday, Mike Pompeo—Trump’s intrepid anti-Iran fanatic, “malignant manatee,” and secretary of state—took to Fox News to talk about the report. 

Au contraire, Mr. Manatee—the “whole world” knows the “bad actor” is the United States in league with Israel and Saudi Arabia. 

But then these guys just can’t help it, they’re serial liars and deceivers. 

I would argue the corporate media is not gullible—it is complicit in war crimes. 

Meanwhile, Pompeo—who admitted earlier this year he is a liar, cheater, and thief—is working closely with the medieval Wahhabi kingdoms and Princeling Mohammed Bone Saw to figure out a way to get a war going even as Trump stands on the brakes, fearing an election loss.

Finally, the war propaganda is becoming seriously bizarre. Here we have “Stop Extremism,” a group that is active on Twitter and Facebook, basically claiming the Houthis are responsible for the evolving humanitarian crisis in Yemen.

Liz Cheney and the Daughters of Creative Destruction

A minor distraction on the path to the next war.

It is rather bizarre Liz Cheney, the daughter of Dick Cheney, would cofound Keep America Safe (now defunct) with a neocon talking head, Bill Kristol. The forever war outfit was funded by Mel Sembler, an Israel-first real estate tycoon who is a good friend of Bibi Netanyahu.

Cheney has absolutely no interest in keeping America safe. She is calling for an immediate attack on Iran. 

From The Hill:

House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said on Wednesday the U.S. should consider a “proportional military response” against Iran, among other potential actions, over its suspected involvement in drone attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil supply.

Forget “proportional.” Cheney and a handful of similarly psychotic neocons want nothing short of the total destruction of Iran on par with the destruction of Iraq, Syria, and Libya.

A million or more dead? Not a problem. For the neocons, would be worth it, same as it was for Madeline Albright, the former Clinton secretary of state who declared on national television the murder of half a million kids in Iraq was worth it.

“Not acting sends a message, frankly, that’s likely to encourage an additional escalation by the Iranians if they feel they can take this kind of action without a response. So I’m pleased to see that we’ve begun to see some of that response,” Cheney said.

“I also think that a proportional military response is the right way to go, and I’m hopeful that Secretary Pompeo is coordinating in that regard with the Saudis,” she added, referring to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

This supposed proportionality would result in a devastating war in the Middle East, the shutdown of oil in the Persian Gulf, and would precipitate a crash of the world economy. It certainly wouldn’t keep America safe. It would do the opposite.

Neocons are not concerned with ordinary Americans teetering on the edge of economic disaster. Neocons have two primary concerns: 1) making Zionist Israel the undisputed hegemon of the Middle East, and 2) maintaining American exceptionalism, that is to say maintaining the ability to destroy nations not following the neoliberal game plan.

Next, we have Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Senator John McCain. From her soapbox at the three-ring circus known as The View, Ms. McCain argued with Whoopi Goldberg about the advisability of bombing Iran.

During the tête-à-tête between Goldberg and McCain, Meghan “claimed that the U.S. sent $400 million to the ‘largest state sponsor of terror,’ adding, ‘I don’t care who you are but we shouldn’t be giving money to a country where people go out in the streets and scream death to Israel, death to America,’” Splinter reported last May.

Not mentioned is the fact the US government stole the money from Iran. Even TIME admitted the money was stolen. 

 [In] the late 1970s… [Iran] had paid for U.S. fighter jets, while Tehran was still a U.S. ally. After it turned into an enemy in 1979, Washington was not about to deliver the jets. But, all these years later, Iran wanted its money back—and with interest.

And yet, neocons like McCain continue to push out the lie that Obama gifted the Iranians “$400 million stacked on pallets.”

McCain is woefully misinformed about nukes in the Middle East. There is but one nuclear power in the neighborhood, and that’s Israel with its undeclared nukes. In 1965, the Zionist state stole over 200 pounds of weapons-grade highly enriched uranium from the Nuclear Materials and Equipment Corporation plant in Apollo, Pennsylvania. There was zero consequence for this brazen act.

Israel, however, doesn’t fit in McCain’s Dr. Strangelove scenario.

More than a decade ago, McCain said she agreed with everything her father had to say about Iran.

Following the unlikely takedown of the mullahs, the late senator wanted a former Marxist cult leader to lord over the country. In the photo below, McCain is standing with Maryam Rajavi, the leader of a terrorist organization that has killed Americans.

Both Meghan McCain and Liz Cheney are a sideshow attraction—billed as the Daughters of Creative Destruction—a minor distraction on the path to a larger and far more destructive war than what Dick Cheney’s neocons inflicted on Iraq.

However, it appears this war will be postponed until after the election. Iran may or may not have targeted Saudi oil. This single event—and that of taking out an expensive US spy drone—are not enough to get a war going and the neocons know it. Israel and the neocons want Iran destroyed now and they may cook up another false flag to get their war going.

If Trump falls, as a result, that’s not a serious concern.

Saudis Show Off Charred Junk, Insist Iran Responsible for Aramco Attack

Charred junk proves absolutely nothing. 

First up, we have the neocon windup clown, Senator Marco Rubio.

Not to worry, Marco—the Saudis are on it. 

No, wait. Early today the Saudis produced a pile of junk and said it came from Iranian drones and missiles.

From the BBC:

The Saudi defense ministry briefing said the wreckage showed the attacks were “unquestionably sponsored by Iran”.

Spokesman Turki al-Malki showed off what was said to be a delta wing of an Iranian UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) along with other weapons debris.

He said that 18 UAVs had been fired at the Abqaiq oil facility and seven cruise missile had been fired at the Khurais oilfield, three of which had fallen short of the target.

This assemblage of junk put on display for the media proves absolutely nothing. 

Regardless, it will be used by the medieval kingdom and US neocons to blame Iran. 

In response to the charred collection of metal, Donald the Clueless decided to impose yet another round of sanctions designed to punish the people of Iran.

Col. Al-Maliki thinks you’re an idiot—and you are if you believe Iran is the top sponsor of terror in the world. That designation is reserved for Saudi Arabia, the United States, and Israel.   

We’re told Iran supports the “terrorism” of Hezbollah, Hamas, and other Palestinian groups, including Islamic Jihad, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command.

Let’s not forget that Hamas was shepherded by Israel. Back in the day, the Zionists figured they could defeat the PLO by nurturing Palestinian Islamists. After the so-called Six Day War, Israel released Sheikh Ahmed Yassin from prison. Yassin went about building Hamas in the 1980s. The Israelis subsequently assassinated the wheelchair-bound imam with a Hellfire missile fired from a US-manufactured Apache helicopter. 

History Commons: 

David Shipler, a former New York Times reporter, later recounts that he was told by the military governor of the Gaza Strip, Brigadier General Yitzhak Segev, that the Israeli government had financed the Islamic movement to counteract the PLO and the communists. According to Martha Kessler, a senior analyst for the CIA, “we saw Israel cultivate Islam as a counterweight to Palestinian nationalism”… Yassin also receives funding from business leaders in Saudi Arabia who are also hostile to the secular PLO for religious reasons. The Saudi government, however, steps in and attempts to halt the private funds going to Yassin, because they view him as a tool of Israel. 

As for Hezbollah, we never get a straight answer from the corporate propaganda media. If we follow the “news,” it appears Hezbollah came out of nowhere with a psychopathic desire to kill Americans and Israelis. 

Brookings and others claim Hezbollah is an Iranian “export.” 

Hezbollah’s methods have evolved as its military and political powers and sophistication have expanded since the mid-1980s, with Lebanon itself rather than American citizens now held hostage. But then as now, Hezbollah serves as the most successful, and the most deadly, export of the 1979 Iranian revolution.

This completely ignores the fact Hezbollah came together in southern Lebanon after Israel invaded the country. Consider the following from the neocon-tinged and humanitarian interventionist “non-partisan” globalist think tank:

Enmeshed in poverty and high rates of illiteracy, Shiite peasants concentrated in the south also suffered disproportionately from the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, as the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) attacked Israel from southern Lebanon, and the Israelis retaliated in kind. Given years of PLO abuses, Shiite residents of the south briefly welcomed the 1982 Israeli invasion, although Israeli tactics quickly alienated them, driving thousands from ancestral villages to the slums of Beirut’s impoverished southern suburbs.

Samia A. Halaby provides perspective, not that we should expect the “Newspaper of Record,” The New York Times, to tell us the truth about the Hezbollah self-defense organization.

I think residents of the southern Lebanon, of Palestine, and Iraq, especially the poorer ones and the working class are tired—way, way beyond feeling that this is ‘unfair’. We have suffered US/Israel behavior since way before 1948. Hezbollah is resistance to this historic attack.

The formation of Hezbollah is a direct result of Israel’s 1978 invasion of Lebanon (Operation Litani) and the 1982 civil war in Lebanon. 

The Academic website cites Ahmad Nizar Hamzeh (The Path Of Hizbullah):

The Israelis killed more than one thousand civilian Shiites, leading to a mass exodus of yet more Shiites refugees to the Beirut slums. Israel’s 1982 invasion and occupation of Lebanon bolstered the fortunes of Hizbullah by “providing a politic-military environment that legitimated the group and gave a rationale for its guerrilla warfare. Similarly, the presence of the Western foreign troops in Lebanon, particularly of the U.S. Marines, also boosted the fortunes of Hezbollah, which considered fighting such forces to be as legitimate as fighting the Israeli occupation.”

Is it possible self-defense forces would be organized in Washington State if Chinese troops landed at the Port of Grays Harbor? If US citizens were shelled, massacred, and taken prisoner as thousands of Shia Lebanese were, do you think there might be an uprising and “terrorist attacks” on the invaders? 

If Americans suffered like the Shia of southern Lebanon did—particularly those tortured (including children) at the Khiam detention center—wouldn’t resistance and retribution be justified?

The torture was carried out by the South Lebanon Army (SLA), an Israeli proxy. 

According to the World Heritage Encyclopedia:

The SLA was closely allied with Israel. It supported the Israelis by fighting the PLO in southern Lebanon until the 1982 invasion. After that, SLA support for the Israelis consisted mainly of fighting other Lebanese guerrilla forces led by Hezbollah until 2000 in the “security zone” (the area under occupation after a partial Israeli withdrawal in 1985). In return Israel supplied the organization with arms, uniforms, and logistical equipment.

Following the alleged attack on the Saudi facilities, Trump’s secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, ventured to Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile, back home in the indispensable nation, the neocon warmonger from South Carolina said the attack represents an “act of war.” 

At this point, it is unlikely Trump will unleash the dogs of war on Iran—that is if he wants to be re-elected next year. He has vacillated repeatedly on Iran and this drives the neocons to distraction. More false flags are likely in the works.

However, this time may be different. It is reported Trump is drawing up plans to hit Iran. “Donald Trump is drawing up a hit-list as he hatches plans to clobber Iran following the attacks on the world’s largest oil plant in Saudi Arabia,” reports the ever-so factual and unbiased British newspaper The Sun.  

It’s now wait and see.

Trump would be a fool to attack Iran. It has the capability to bring oil shipments to a halt and launch missiles at US troops and hardware in the region. This would undoubtedly take down the global economy and precipitate a world war.

Cui Bono, Israel, and the Attack on Saudi Oil

Trump and Congress are Pavlovian chumps. 

As usual, we’re expected to believe officialdom on responsibility for the attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil production. Mike Pompeo, Trump’s former CIA boss and tank commander, reflexively blamed Iran minus any evidence whatsoever. 

It took a couple days to get the narrative ironed out. 

Trump is a reluctant to place blame for the attack on Iran. He understands a war with Iran will be catastrophic, not only for the entire Middle East, but the world economy as a whole. It will wreck Trump’s goal of making himself a peacemaker. 

Trump is waiting on word from Prince “Bone Saw” Salman before he commits the US military to bombing Iran, likely targeting its oil production infrastructure in tit-for-tat fashion. Iran, of course, will not take this laying down. It will immediately retaliate by hitting oil fields and petrochemical facilities situated in the Persian Gulf Emirates. Iran will also target US military bases, installations, and warships within reach of its missiles.  

https://twitter.com/NewsBreaking/status/1173313232041205760?s=20

On Tuesday, “senior officials” in the US said without a doubt the attack came from southern Iran which borders the northern end of the Persian Gulf. 

The BBC reports Iran has “attacked Saudi oil facilities before, but US officials said on Sunday that they believed the drones and missiles did not originate from the south or south-west, and instead were launched from the north or north-west.”

If we consult a map, we discover Israel is situated to the northwest of Saudi Arabia. Iran is in the east and Iraq to the north. Because cruise missiles and drones have the capability of changing direction, we do not have a good idea where the missiles came from and the party responsible for launching them.

For the US, this is not a problem. It is now habituated to telling lies, releasing misinformation, and disseminating propaganda associated with false flag attacks. Much of what it reports is believed without question by millions of Americans. The state describes this mass credulity and inability to question authority as “patriotism.” 

Iran has said it will shut down oil production across the Gulf if US sanctions on its export of oil remain in place. The sanctions imposed on Iran’s oil and economy are an act of war, so it makes sense Iran would be responsible for the attack—that is, if they’re crazy and want their country reduced to rubble and possibly an irradiated no-go zone. It is irrational to believe the leadership of Iran desires such a fate. 

Chanting “Death to Israel and America” is rhetorical. Iran does not have the ability to destroy either, although in the event of a war, Israel will certainly suffer an onslaught of missiles from both Iran and Hezbollah in Lebanon. It will need the US to fight on at least two fronts. 

It is entirely obvious, even to the casual observer, that Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the war-obsessed neocon faction within the US government are working overtime to destroy Iran. 

I don’t believe the fact this attack occurred within days of Trump firing the neocon John Bolton is a coincidence. Bolton failed to steer Trump into bombing Iran and this necessitated a neocon Plan B—yet another, far more serious false flag attack to finally push the US into bombing Iran. Israel and Saudi Arabia would love to do this, but they are incapable and need the US war machine’s help. 

Left unmentioned in the slanted and bias deluge of corporate media reports on the attack—all information received from a government known for pathological lying—is the duplicity and violence of both Israel and Saudi Arabia. 

Israel has bombed hundreds of targets with impunity in Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq. It has provided medical assistance to jihadi terrorists in Syria. 

Saudi Arabia has killed tens of thousands of innocent civilians in Yemen and has spread its poisonous Wahhabi creed of murderous jihadism around the world. It is fair to say the governments of both Israel and Saudi Arabia hate the United States. Israel has carte blanc to spy on America, blackmail US presidents, “lobby” Congress, and steal technological secrets. Recall the “art students” and “dancing Israelis.” 

Saudi Arabia is at the center of the 9/11 attacks. Florida Senator Bob Graham, who chaired the United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said in sworn statements that “there was evidence of support from the Saudi government for the terrorists.” 

The 28-pages were a “thing” for a short period of time, but have since largely been ignored and buried under a daily avalanche of far less important corporate news.  

Israel and Saudi Arabia are now best of buddies. They share the same objectives vis-à-vis Iran. Is it impossible to believe Saudi Arabia would target or allow Israel or the US to target its prized oil fields and refineries? 

I believe the answer is yes. Refineries can be rebuilt and oil fields resuscitated. It is a small price to pay to get rid of the mullahs and take down Iran’s critical infrastructure, in effect turning it into another Libya. 

But this will not happen. Iran has the ability to defend itself. It’s not Iraq or Libya. Iran’s leaders have promised a long and painful asymmetrical war after their cities are bombed and civilian infrastructure wasted. 

This is the actual objective—the “bomb them back to the Stone Age” paradigm—not an illusory nuclear weapons program. It’s how the neocons and Israelis operate—not unlike the Hittites and Assyrians strewing salt in a conquered enemy’s fields. It is the same barbaric mentality—not only murder and drive off your enemy, but make it impossible for him to fully recover. 

Prior to his dismissal, John Bolton cited the “Libyan Model” in relation to North Korea. Adam Garfinkle spelled out this process in 2018:

When John Bolton invoked “the Libya Model” a couple of days ago in reference to North Korea, he clearly meant the model, from 2003-04, in which the U.S. government, in the form of the George W. Bush Administration, persuaded the Libyan government to hand over its WMD program stuff in return for a pledge that the United States would not seek to put Muammar Qaddafi’s head on the wall at the Pentagon or in Langley.

Neocons, however, are notoriously duplicitous, and after Obama was elected the pledge to not kill Gaddafi and destroy Libya were betrayed. The lesson: never trust the US or its partners, most notably Britain, when they make promises. Chances are, they’re lying and assassins await in the shadows to do their dirty work. 

This is what happened to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action—the agreement was nullified by Trump, once again demonstrating the word of the US cannot be trusted. 

The destruction of Iraq, Syria, and Libya have nothing to WMDs, chemical weapons, and nuclear weapons programs. In a superficial way, the objective resembles that the Turco-Mongol invasions of the 13th century—kill everybody and let god sort them out. 

Chinggis Khan preferred surrender and the creation of vassals offering tribute in exchange for Mongol protection, but this is not the objective of the Israelis and the neocons. 

They are not interested in obedience and tribute. They want to decimate their enemies and, after bombing them into submission, balkanize their nations and subject them to never-ending strife, ethnic conflict, and political sectarianism. 

Iran, of course, will be identified as the culprit in the targeting of Saudi Arabia’s oil production. It’s unclear what exactly will happen and when, but it can be taken without a doubt this is part of a plan to get momentum moving on war and murder.

It is unfortunate far too many Americans are clueless about what is about to happen and what it will mean—the shut down of oil trade, oil being the lubricant of civilization. 

The war to destroy Iran will be worse than the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, and much of Africa. It will sap what’s left our national treasure—borrowed from banksters—and spill a whole lot of blood for the sake of Israel and Saudi Arabia. 

Trump and Congress are essentially Pavlovian chumps. 

Trump: Saudi Arabia’s Bitch

False flag or Yemeni retaliation?

That’s what Democrat candidate Tulsi Gabbard calls President Trump for his slavish reliance on Saudi Arabia to declare Iran responsible for last weekend’s attack on Saudi oil resources. 

Gabbard’s comments are in response to Trump’s tweet on Sunday:

For the Saudis, there is but one culprit—Iran. The Kingdom and its psychotic boy prince, Mohammed bin Salman, wants nothing more than to take down Iran, preferably to the ground and smoldering. It cannot do this without the help of the US military. The blame will not go to some fictitious terror group hiding out in the Maldives. I exaggerate, of course, but not much. 

Tulsi elaborates her position:

Meanwhile, one of the loudest, shrillest, and most Israel-centric talk show hosts in America has denounced her as a “clown” for attempting to end the neocon wars and return sanity and balance to US foreign policy. 

Neocons are predisposed to tell lies. There is no evidence Iran had anything to do with the attack, or for that matter Yemen. And there will little if any convincing evidence provided by Mike Pompeo and his neocons. they understand evidence is not required, only lies. 

This paucity of evidence has never bothered the neocons—they simply invent and spin events resulting in deadly consequence. For instance, the murder of over a million Iraqis, which it is fair to say Mark Levin supported and will again. Because only Israeli and American lives matter, especially the former. 

Zionists are not concerned with the mass murder of Arabs and Muslims. Israel’s history is chock full of massacres, torture, the imprisonment of children, and the targeted assassination of medics, journalists, and activists along the prison wall that separates the Gaza Strip from Israel.

The “dangerous fool” here is Mark Levin, an Israel-first neocon of the first order masquerading as an American constitutionalist. His version of the Constitution doesn’t include Article I, Section 8, Clause 11. It specifies only Congress can declare war, not a president caught in some kind of Zionist voodoo trance. 

Levin calls Gabbard a “moron,” when it is Levin who is the moron, or at least comes off as one. There is virtually zero evidence Iran has killed US soldiers (in occupied Iraq) and is building ICBMs for nuclear warheads that do not exist. Levin’s citing Israeli propaganda, not verifiable facts. 

Mark Levin, of course, is not a moron. He’s an intelligent, conniving, and hateful neocon, an Israel-first fanatic. He wants to bomb Iran—just like his ideological twin, the dismissed John Bolton—and the prospect of thousands of dead Iranians and the Middle East in flames does not bother him, as it would any human with empathy and a sense of justice.

Levin has no such empathy for average Iranians, Gazans, Lebanese, and Syrians. Like all neocons, his only concern is Israel. He supports Trump simply because Trump is locked in a Zionist voodoo trance and will give the tiny apartheid state just abbot anything it wants, including putting America’s imprimatur on yet another war, this one with far more dire consequences for humanity than the other neocon wars. 

Tulsi, as any serious politician, has paid lip service to Israel. She knows that failing to do so will terminate her political career. She went so far as to support the unconstitutional anti-BDS legislation working its way through Congress. 

But that’s not enough for Levin and the neocons. Nothing short of enthusiastic support for Israel and its endless wars, ethnic cleansing, and apartheid are acceptable for any US politician, especially those running for president. 

Trump declares he’s “locked and loaded” after the attack on Saudi oil facilities. He is waiting for the Saudis to make up their minds on possible perpetrators. But that’s a foregone conclusion. Iran is responsible. Iran will be punished, possibly with bunker busters and the destruction of its infrastructure. 

This latest drama has all the earmarks of a false flag operation designed to further ratchet up hostilities and eventually get a war going. 

Mark Levin is doing all he can to make it so.

Trump is Saudi Arabia (and Israel’s) “Bitch”

Presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard’s November, 2018 tweet about Trump and Saudi Arabia is relevant as ever, especially after Trump vetoed a bill calling for the end of US involvement in the Saudi slaughter of innocents in Yemen and also his unwillingness to call out the Saudis on the brutal murder and dismemberment of Jamal Khashoggi.
