VIDEO: Saudi History; US Meddling & War Lies; Syria & The Refugee Crisis

I put together a collection of videos for the patient viewer. It provides some background information on the current situation in the middle east, with focus on Syria in particular.

The first clip explains how Saudi Arabia was created with the help of notoriously radical Wahhabist groups who still control much of the moral and social fabric of the country, and how the US got involved due to oil riches.

Then we listen to former CIA operative John Stockwell who delves into the history of US covert operations, he explains among other things how the US has had a history of migrating dangerous US funded radicals into the US after failed operations.

Then we take a look back at how deliberate and calculated media lies drummed up support for US meddling in the Kuwaiti/Iraqi border conflict.

Then we look at a more recent example of such media lies, with the objective of building sufficient support for US aggression against Iraq in 2003.

Then we look at yet more recent examples of embarrassing and exposed media lies and spin designed to gain support for the same regime change policy that plunged Iraq into chaos, made it a safe haven for terrorists, and resulted in the deaths of roughly 1.4 million Iraqi civilians, but this time the lucky beneficiary of democratization a la ‘Murica was of course Syria.

This is followed by a 2012 Congressional Speech speech by Ron Paul, calling out the lies & deception designed to drum up support for regime change in Syria.

Then we look at independent Canadian journalist Eva Bartlett speaking about her experiences in Syria. She exposes how the western mainstream media is lying to the public about the war in Syria, the Syrian army, Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, and Russia.

Then we look at a Newsbud roundtable discussion called “The Generators, Agent Provocateurs & Opportunists of the Refugee Crisis”.

Finally, we get independent journalist Kurt Nimmo’s excellent & concise summary of the current situation in Syria and how we got here.

Ron Paul Predicts ISIS Takeover in Iraq … in 2002

As always, Ron Paul predicts today’s events in Iraq over a decade in advance …

2002 – Ron Paul predicts ISIS Iraq takeover: “Now (…) we’re planning a risky war to remove him from power. And as usual the probable result of such an effort will be something our government does not anticipate, like a takeover by someone much worse. As bad as Hussein is, he is enemy of the Al Quaida and someone new may well be a close ally of the Islamic radicals.”

Iraq – Mission Accomplished

Seven years of US led genocide have truly wrecked yet another nation. As a premonition of what’s to come, Iraqi insurgents launched a broad series of attacks on August 25th.

Let’s not forget to thank president Bush and the US Congress for this hideous accomplishment. Let’s also not forget to thank President Obama for keeping US forces stationed in this hell hole …

Iraq Deaths Estimator

From JustForeignPolicy.org:

Sign the petition telling Congress that about a million Iraqis have likely been killed since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003. Help us expose to Congress the true costs of war.

A study, published in prestigious medical journal The Lancet, estimated that over 600,000 Iraqis had been killed as a result of the invasion as of July 2006. Iraqis have continued to be killed since then. The death counter provides a rough daily update of this number based on a rate of increase derived from the Iraq Body Count. (See the complete explanation.)

The estimate that over a million Iraqis have died received independent confirmation from a prestigious British polling agency in September 2007. Opinion Research Business estimated that 1.2 million Iraqis have been killed violently since the US-led invasion.

This devastating human toll demands greater recognition. It eclipses the Rwandan genocide and our leaders are directly responsible. Little wonder they do not publicly cite it. You can use the simple HTML code above to post the counter to your website to help spread the word.

Add your name to the petition telling Congress that about a million Iraqis have likely been killed since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.

Help us continue this important work with a tax-deductible contribution.

See the list of some folks we know have posted the counter.

I will say it again as I have many times … War is a Racket – Made by Government.

8 Years Later – Most Republicans Now Realize Iraq War Was a Mistake

From a Cato panel:

In a Thursday panel at Cato on conservatism and war, U.S. Reps. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) and John Duncan (R-Tenn.) revealed that the vast majority of GOP members of Congress now think it was wrong for the U.S. to invade Iraq in 2003.

The discussion was moderated by Grover Norquist, who asked the congressmen how many of their colleagues now think the war was a mistake.

Rohrabacher:

“I will say that the decision to go in, in retrospect, almost all of us think that was a horrible mistake. …Now that we know that it cost a trillion dollars, and all of these years, and all of these lives, and all of this blood… all I can say is everyone I know thinks it was a mistake to go in now.”

McClintock:

“I think everyone [in Congress] would agree that Iraq was a mistake.”

Watch the clip:

… and see, because they were so abysmally wrong and foolish, it is very important for you to listen to everything they have to say now about Afghanistan. THAT war was stupid, THIS war is good. :)

Haha, Republocrats are such an adorable and funny little bunch …

The Meaning of Avatar

I couldn’t agree more …

The obvious references to the US invasion of foreign countries with the objective to take control of their natural resources does not need to be stressed, but I found Stef’s interpretation of the movie’s references to infancy, childhood, education, and parenting quite striking.
