10 countries that threaten world peace more than North Korea

North Korea does not pose a critical threat to the world. But these countries have done and still very much do.

North Korea is often portrayed as a rogue state which endangers the region and according to some, the world. But North Korea has not engaged in a hot conflict since the ceasefire which ended the Korean War in 1953. There is little evidence that North Korea is actually as menacing as it often pretends to be, let alone as  menacing as others claim it is.

The same cannot be said for the following 10 countries.

1. The United States 

Since 1998 alone, the United States has conducted unprovoked, illegal, aggressive attacks on the following countries:

–Iraq

–Yugoslavia

–Afghanistan

–Iraq (again)

–Libya

–Sudan

–Somalia

–Yemen

–Syria

During this time, the US also funded and provoked an illegal coup in Ukraine.

If invading and overthrowing governments in countries that have not even attempted to invade the United States isn’t a danger to world peace, I do not know what is.

2. Ukraine

Since 2014, the Ukrainian regime has engaged in a genocidal war against ethnic and cultural Russians in Donbass. The war has not ceased and the Kiev regime constantly violates the Minsk II ceasefire agreement.

The war has seen the use of chemical weapons on civilian targets as well as the deprivation of food, medical supplies and electricity to Donbass.

The Republics of Donbass have never sought to attack Kiev, merely to defend their democratic republics against aggression that has not ceased since 2014.

This is an attempt at ethnic cleansing that the world should have condemned and put a stop to a long time ago.

3. Israel 

Israel has continually occupied lands recognised by the UN as Palestinian territory since 1948.

Israel has illegally occupied Syrian territory since 1967. In 1982 Israel invaded and occupied Lebanon and only left in 2000. An attempt to invade Lebanon in 2006 was stopped by combined Lebanese forces, primary those of Hezbollah.

Israel continues to illegally invade and bomb Syrian territory, thus exacerbating the current crisis in that country.

Israel’s Yinon Plan, is a long term strategy that many in Israel’s government and deep state plan to execute in order to annex further land among Israel’s neighbours.

4. Turkey 

Turkey has illegally occupied Cyprus since 1974. Under President Erdogan this will almost certainly not change.

Erdogan’s forces continue to occupy Syria and Iraq. The Turkish jihadist proxy militia FSA is guilty of numerous atrocities against civilians in Syria. In the most populous regions of Syria, the FSA is an even bigger throat-cutting, car-bombing menace than ISIS or al Qaeda.

5. United Kingdom 

British Prime Minister Tony Blair made NATO’s illegal invasion of Yugoslavia something of a personal crusade where for Bill Clinton it was to a great extent, merely an opportunity to get Monica Lewinsky out of the headlines.

Blair was the only major leader apart from George W. Bush to make passionate pleas for Iraq’s invasion.

Since then, Britain has followed the US into every major illegal conflict in the Arab world and beyond.

6. Saudi Arabia 

Saudi Arabia is the world’s leading sponsor of Wahhabist terrorism. A long time sponsor of al-Qaeda, now ISIS too is covertly supported by Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia’s aims for the Arab world are nefarious to say the least. With oil prices plummeting, the Saudis have turned to imperialism fought not with a regular army, but conducted by infusing money into extremist causes including and especially, violent terrorism.

7. Qatar 

Qatar is guilty of many of the same crimes as its larger neighbour Saudi Arabia. In particular, Qatar’s funding to jihadist killers in Syria is partly motivated by a desire to build a gas pipeline from Qatar to Turkey. In order to do this, the pipeline would need to go through Syria.

Qatar’s war is there for gas war in the guise of blood soaked jihad.

8. France 

France’s trail of blood in the Arab world was left most profoundly in Algeria where the French murdered and tortured Algerian freedom fighters between 1954 and 1962.

France’s footprint on its former mandate/colony Syria is also widely hated by all Syrians.

Under Nicholas Sarkozy, France led the public charge for war on Libya and under President Hollande, France has been committing war crimes in Syria, it’s former colony.

The audacity is incredibly insulting to Syria.

France’s intervention into Mali in 2013-2014 has also been widely criticised as a duplicitous post-colonial exercise.

9. Germany 

As the de-facto leader of the EU, Germany was essential in helping to foment the illegal fascist coup in Ukraine. In 2014, Germany along with Poland and France authored an agreement that was supposed to ease tensions in Kiev. In reality, the agreement bought time for the extremists who finalised their coup against the legitimate President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovyc the following day.

Germany has also illegally bombed Syria as part of the US coalition in the region.  Germany’s actions towards Greece and Cyprus in particular could legitimately be described as economic warfare.

10. Albania 

Although one of NATO’s smallest and poorest members, Albania is the swamp from which the constant threat of war in the Balkans looms.

Since the late 1990s, Albania has transformed into a hotbed of regional imperialism as well as radical political Sunni Islam.

Albanian leaders seek to create a so-called Greater Albania by annexing parts of Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro and even Greece.

Recently the Albanian Prime Minister threatened to annex part of Serbia if the EU didn’t fulfil Albanian demands.

Likewise, the infamous Tirana Platform is essentially a blue-print for an Albanian lead break-up of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. In spite of its name, the Tirana Platform was drafted in English in the west and then  passed to Albanian authorities in Tirana who themselves then passed it onto extremist Albanian insurgents in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia who cannot read a word of English. Nevertheless, they’re all ready slowly executing the plan.

Each of these states threaten the world far more than North Korea ever has or likely ever could. But these countries all share something that North Korea does not. They are all either NATO members or otherwise, very close US allies.

The consolidation of power of the global military industrial complex

Do Europeans support the notion that the countries of the EU be the nuclear war playground of the United States?

Richard Galustian

Published

on

Humanity faces two imminent existential threats: environmental catastrophe and nuclear war.

America has elected to completely ignore scientists warnings that we have 12 years to reverse an environmental disaster.

As far as nuclear obliteration, Trump announced that the US is withdrawing from the INF treaty, which eliminated short range missiles deployed in Western Europe, on Russia’s doorstep. It’s the equivalent of Russia placing nuclear missiles in Venezuela.

A provocation, which enables US supplied missiles to be launched, only a few minutes flight time to Moscow.

That, of course sharply increases the nuclear danger. Historically on both sides, attack warnings given by automated systems have often proved faulty in the past; that, if enacted upon, would have meant the end of life as we know it.

Anyone familiar with contemporary military history knows that it’s a virtual miracle that we have so far avoided nuclear war.

Politically within Europe, the attack on democracy is very clear. Unchallenged undemocratic institutions in Brussels exist that is, in the main, part of the problem of the UK BREXIT negotiations.

Why does the public readily accept wars, engineered by our morally bankrupt governments to create ‘regime change’ in countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, the Ukraine and soon to be Venezuela followed by Nicaragua and Iran, with such a muted outcry?

That preemptive nuclear attacks are even thought of shows the insanity of Western leadership controlled by vested financial interests led by the Military/Security Industrial Complex and bankers. Those same interests created both ‘industrialised’ World Wars in the 20th Century.

Our governments do not listen to the people. When two million hit the streets of London before the invasion of Iraq in 2003, it made not an iota of difference to Tony Blair’s government.

Today, people’s apathy is notably caused by conditioning’, maybe better described as we’ve been ‘disciplined’ by MSM propaganda and family’s economic necessity to focus on their income, have made us so, due to our governments mismanagement of our economies.

Example, our university students are saddled with impossible to repay debt for a reason; to keep future generations ‘disciplined’.

No one has time or dare show any dissent especially given the Orwellian ‘newspeak’ environment that is created by ‘political correctness’.

Back to the subject of Russia phobia. The Western narrative against Russia is, in the main, the below:

* that Russia tried to murder the Skripals. Let the British government, who seem to be holding the Skripals against their will, prove they are not, by letting them be interviewed by the World’s Press.

* Ukraine – For over four years, the governments of NATO and the MSM have been waging the new cold war against Russia. This began with the ‘Maidan’ protests in Kyiv, Ukraine in early 2014 that culminated in the overthrow, universally acknowledged to have been engineered by the CIA, of Ukraine’s elected president and Parliament in February 2014. Putting in power an ultra neo-Nazi government, that in particular voiced hatred against all things Russian…and Jewish. Which MSM, TV news or newspapers, says so?

* That almost 100% of Crimea’s population are glad and grateful to be part of Russia. US, UK and EU says that is untrue, which is nonsense.

The demonisation of Russia is central to the multinational corporate interests that control our governments; the bankers protecting the steeply declining US Dollar, the institutions of the EU that are really controlled by Washington, who are preparing world public opinion to accept what the United States are now gearing up for, the “defence” of Europe.

At this point let us reflect on history by quoting one of America’s most distinguished soldiers, maybe of its entire history, General Smedley D. Butler, from his book ‘War is a Racket: The Antiwar Classic by America’s Most Decorated Soldier.’

“No one told these American soldiers that they might be shot down by bullets made by their own brothers here. No one told them that the ships on which they were going to cross might be torpedoed by submarines built with US patents.”

It is recommended to read more about General Smedley Butler, as he was the man chosen by US bankers and particularly the Bush family in the 1930s, to be the new fascist leader of the USA by overthrowing, in a coup, the then President Roosevelt during the period of Hitler’s rise to power. A coincidence one wonders. Butler was a true patriot; he bided his time then revealed the plot to both Congress and President Roosevelt. If you doubt this, it is suggested you research the subject.

We can stop the consolidation of power of the global military/security industrial complex, its war party associates, and specifically the US, UK and EU deep state political and financial elite that no doubt exists. We must elect new leaders, it’s that simple.

To quote Noam Chomsky “….power is always illegitimate, unless it proves itself to be legitimate. So the burden of proof is always on those who claim that some authoritarian hierarchic government is legitimate. If they can’t prove it, then it should be dismantled.”

Implicit in this statement is change by either elections or revolutions.

The French people have shown us when enough is enough by their persistent resistance to their government.

Do Europeans support the notion that the countries of the EU be the nuclear war playground of the United States?

Google flipped seats, shifted millions of votes to Dems in 2018 midterms

Google influenced 2018 midterms, shifted millions of votes to Dems – new research.

RT

Published

Via RT…


Google’s biased search algorithm actually flipped seats in the 2018 US midterm elections, according to a researcher who found the search engine’s “dramatically biased” results could have shifted over 78 million votes to Democrats.

“Upwards of 25 percent of the national elections in the world are being decided without people’s knowledge by Google’s search algorithm,” senior research psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein of the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology told RT, calling the search engine the “deciding factor” in close races.

Epstein’s study of three 2018 California House races found Google played the deciding role in flipping those Republican-held seats to the Democrats, influencing millions of undecided voters by controlling what they saw when they searched 500 election-related terms. Google’s results showed a “significant liberal bias,” unlike Bing’s or Yahoo’s – and with 90 percent of the search engine’s market share in the US, that bias is enormously influential.

Search results favoring one side of an issue can influence anywhere from 20 to 80 percent of undecided voters, depending on the issue and demographic group, Epstein said. He has spent six years investigating the role of what he calls the Search Engine Manipulation Effect (SEME) in swaying public opinion, more recently focusing on the political ramifications by looking at various countries’ elections.

“People trust algorithmic output. They trust Google. They think because it’s generated by a computer, they don’t see the human hand – they think it’s impartial and objective and, because of that, their opinions change,” Epstein said.

While Google denies it manipulates search rankings to manipulate political sentiment or makes election-specific tweaks, Epstein says their response is disingenuous – he never claimed they re-ranked results, merely that the results they displayed were biased.

We found very consistently that on Google they ended up with search results favoring liberals and favoring liberal news sources, and it was quite a dramatic effect.

May tells Brexiters in Chequers meeting she’ll quit if they vote for her Brexit deal

May has alienated too many Labour MPs and Tory Remainer ultras to win the vote.

Reported by Robert Peston via iTV…


I am reliably told that Theresa May told Boris Johnson, Iain Duncan Smith, Steve Baker, Jacob Rees Mogg, David Davis et al at Chequers that she will quit if they vote for her deal, including the backstop they hate.

But she gave no specifics. So there is not a lot of trust she would actually quit.

And the problem is that even if she persuades all Tory ERG MPs to vote for her unamended Withdrawal Agreement, which she won’t (because although Mogg and his supporters may succumb to her call for loyalty, Baker and the Brexiter purists will resist her blandishments) and she also successfully woos Northern Ireland’s 10 DUP, she still does not have the numbers.

May has alienated too many Labour MPs and Tory Remainer ultras (Grieve, Greening, Gyamah inter alia) to win the vote. So even with May offering herself for ritual sacrifice on the Brexiter altar, the ERG Brexiters and DUP may well say thank you very much, and vote against her anyway.

Why should they compromise their principles, and alienate their loyal supporters, for May’s doomed project?
