‘I helped create ISIS’: Iraq War veteran says US policy caused 'blowback' in Middle East

We have always tried to bring you the news corporate owned mainstream media will not report. Not all of it of course, we are way to small a ... well more a club than an organisation really. What you will find here however is fearless reporting of the real news, the items that should fill front pages and TV news bulletins but that you will never see or hear of from those sources because the truth is often embarrassing for the power elites.

Here's another plank in the case we are building against The White House and the US Government over its conduct of the war against ISIS in Syria and the duplicity of US foreign policy that has been exposed by Russia's intervention in the conflict.

The truth about ISIS is emerging, but you will only find it in alternative media (Image source)

from Russia Today

Former US Marine Vincent Emanuele saying he had “helped create ISIS,” in no way contradicts previous reports here that reveal ISIS was a US government promotion. While The Pentagon and the US State Department seeded the Islamist group by sponsoring, arming and training extremist Sunni Muslim groups with the aim of deposing the Syrian president Bashar al Assad, the earlier neo - con regime change war that overthrew Saddam Hussein in Iraq and turned that country into a failed state certainly went a long way towards creating the atmosphere of hate and mistrust in which the rebellion flourished.

It helps also that we now understand how ISIS have been funded with direct help from NATO member Turkey and the involvement of President Erdogan's family in illegal oil trading with the terrorist group.

In speaking out about what really happened during the ten year occupation, the Iraq War veteran and US Marine described the atrocities and criminal activities he and his fellow soldiers engaged in during the Iraq War, claiming they knew it would lead to “blowback” in the Middle East.

This acknowledgement of responsibility comes in an article that was posted on TeleSUR’s English website, in which Emanuele hoped to answer the often raised question of “Where did ISIS come from?”

“When I was stationed in Iraq with the 1st Battalion, 7th Marines, 2003-2005, I didn’t know what the repercussions of the war would be, but I knew there would be a reckoning,” he wrote at TeleSUR. “That retribution, otherwise known as blowback, is currently being experienced around the world (Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Libya, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, France, Tunisia, California, and so on), with no end in sight.”

Talking to Russia Today, Emanuele said his enlightenment occurred on his second tour of duty to Iraq and was the result of a simple question.

“I saw my fellow Marines kill innocent people, torture innocent civilians, destroying property, mutilating dead bodies, running over dead corpses, laughing and photographing people while doing so,” he said. “For me it was very simple. I sat there in Iraq and I asked myself ‘How would I behave?’ ‘What would I think if I was in the shoes of the Iraqi people?’”

In his article, Emanuele described how he and his platoon literally trashed Mesopotamia by throwing garbage out of their Humvee, and pelting children with Skittles, water bottles full of urine, rocks, and debris. He remembers stories told by soldiers of torture carried out on detainees in makeshift detention facilities.

Emanuele said he began educating himself during his second tour by talking to family and friends and engaging in the work of anti-war activists and intellectuals like Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, and Amy Goodman, as well as learning about the activities of groups such as Veterans for Peace, Iraq Veterans Against the War, and Vietnam Veterans against the War. This helped him contextualize his anecdotal experience.

“I knew what I was seeing was wrong, I knew it was immoral, I knew it was unjust, I knew it was illegal,” said Emanuele to RT, “and I knew that we would pay severe consequences in the form of the blowback as we are seeing with groups like ISIS. I knew those things were going to happen back then just from being a self-conscious person.”

Emanuele's version of events is not complete of course, but in the context of how the USA, Saudi Arabia and Turkey have manipulated and controlled the war in Syria up until the intervention of Russia and Iran (legally because it was at the request of the Assad regime, Syria's legitimate government no matter how much Barack Hussein Obama hates them, it helps us understand how a bunch of brutal savages like ISIS could get as much support as they have among the people of Syria and Iraq.

German Police Admit They Have Lost Control Of Immigrant ‘Problem Neighbourhoods’

Migrant gangs clash in Germany - over who gets to gang rape the virgin maybe? (Image source)

The emergence of Muslim dominated 'no-go' zones or “problem neighbourhoods” or “lawless neighbourhoods” for police and emergency services in Germany over the course of 2015, as a result of the Politically Correct immigration policies of Hausfrau - Volksfuher Merkel has made law enforcement impossible in some areas, according to the latest police reports out of Berlin.

This admission of the existence of no-go zones in Europe, after months of denials from mainstream media and political leaders in Germany, Sweden, France and EU bureaucrats comes from state police in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), a west German state that borders Belgium and the Netherlands. An inquiry led by a Christian Democratic (CDU) politician into the problems of policing immigrant communities has prompted an embarrassing admission of failure by local police to control the situation.

In Federal Germany, state police are responsible for local law enforcement, but can call upon Federal police and appeal to neighbouring states for support. The CDU parliamentary deputy Gregor Golland’s inquisition reveals 78 per cent of all regional authorities within the NRW state have had to bring in external re-enforcements this year due to migrant criminal gangs, reports the Rheinische Post.

Migrant crime in the North Rhine - Westphalia is blamed on criminal gangs from the Lebanon, Poland, and Serbia, which have defied police attempts to infiltrate them. One NRW detective said that these 'family' ties borne of ethnicity, cultural bonds and religious affiliation make suspects reluctant to speak to police, and investigators routinely encountered a code of silence during interrogations.

But the Westphalian gangs are “certainly only the tip of the iceberg” in terms of immigrant crime, said the detective. These criminals acted with uncommon brutality towards police and ethnic German crime victims, he said. Officers complain they often leave the no - go areas "bruised and battered" having been roughed up by gangs of young men who vastly outnumber them.

As we have reported previously, German Federal politicians and the politicised federal police have issued instructions that policing must be 'racially sensitive' and nothing should be done if there is a risk it will inflame racial tensions. In other words the gangs have carte blanche to do as they please. No wonder rape crime figures in Germany are setting records month after month.

CDU deputy Gregor Golland has criticised the political establishment in NRW for allowing this state of affairs for developing, where “criminal parallel societies are seeking the upper hand, or those already solidifying”. He said police must be better equipped to deal with the problem. High-profile woman police officer Tania Kambouri remarked on the subject during an interview this month, as she discussed the lack of respect young Muslim men displayed towards their new home, its people, culture and traditions and the officers who keep the law in it.

Stating that young Muslim men proudly proclaim they "shit on Germany", Mrs. Kambouri said police had already lost control in some areas of the country. The officer also expressed concern that anyone who brought up these issues was instantly discredited by being denounced as a “Nazi”.

This will be coming to your streets and outside your door soon. But if try to initiate a debate on such issues you're a RAAAAAAAAAAAAACIST.

The idiocy the state and media inflicts on European people is nothing more than a war crime as they are expected to still believe that this is a humanitarian issue so they do not have the moral courage to recognise that they have been betrayed. And you wont find any of this in the mainstream media. Today the Guardian has rolled out the anti white supremacist Darcus Howe to castigate Letwin's remarks he made 30 years ago regarding the decapitation of PC Blakelock in the Tottenham riots. If a white person published the kind of racist shite Howe regularly spouts they would be charged with hate crime

In a time of universal deceit — telling the truth is a revolutionary act - George Orwell

And lest any left wing idiot should be thinking of excusing the crimes of Muslim migrants, here's a reminder of recent past atrocities carried out in the name of "The Religion Of Peace."

From 1915 – 1923, some 1.5 million Christians were brought through what is now Turkey and walked to their deaths near Deir-al-Zour in modern Syria. One hundred years on, only a handful of survivors remain to tell the stories of the Armenian genocide by the Ottoman Turkish Muslims, which they witnessed.

Boko Haram attacks In Nigeria Kill More Than 80 People

A Nigerian school following a visit by Boko Haram educational consultants (Image source)

Remember just a few days ago this blog reported that the President of Nigeria had declared victory and claimed he had kept his promise to defeat the Boko Haram (Death to western education) Islamic terrorist insurrection in the west African state which is the most heavily populated on the African continent.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari says that his armed forces have met the December deadline set for defeating the jihadi terror group Boko Haram and that the Islamists are no longer capable of mounting a serious attack against the Nigerian military or population centers. The oft quoted words of Mandy Raice Davis, a prostitute involved in a 1960s political scandal spring to mind. "He would say that wouldn't he?" Unfortunately nobody seems to have told Boko Haram of President Buhari's heroic victory

Ironically, on Wednesday (23 December), just after buhari told the world he had defeated Boko Haram we learned from reliable news feeeds (Reuters and Agence France-Presse (AFP) that Boko Haram rebels carried out four attacks on villages in Niger, Chad and Cameroon, killing at least seven people including two soldiers and three civilians in Niger’s southern border town of Abadam.

And now we learn that Boko Haram Islamic extremists yesterday (28 December) struck a city, Maiduguri, the capital of the state of Borno, and a town in northeastern Nigeria with rocket-propelled grenades and multiple suicide bombers Monday, killing at least 80 people, according to eye witnesses.

At least 30 more were killed and more than 90 wounded in overnight blasts and shootouts, and an additional 20 died in a bombing outside a mosque at dawn Monday, said Muhammed Kanar, area coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency.

A pair of suicide bombers also killed at least 30 people in Madagali, a town 95 miles southeast of Maiduguri, witnesses said.

The attacks appear to be a direct challenge to President Muhammadu Buhari's declaration last week that Nigerian security forces have "technically won the war" against Boko Haram and that it is now capable of no more than suicide bombings on soft targets. As a response it is typical in style of the way Boko Haram operate.

Maiduguri, with a population of about 1 million people, hosts almost as many refugees — among the 2.5 million people driven from their homes in the 6-year-old Islamic uprising. About 20,000 people have been killed in Nigeria and hundreds others elsewhere as the insurgents have carried their conflict across its borders into Cameroon, Niger and Chad.

The military said there had been multiple attacks at four southwestern entry points to Maiduguri.


Pentagon Admits US Ground Troops Involved in Somalia Raid

Pentagon officials confirmed that US ground troops were involved in a raid against a town in Somalia held by fighters of the ISIS afilliated al-Shabaab terror group. The US troops arrived by helicopter to engage the terrorists in a raid which also involved Somali forces, and which they say killed “more than 10? fighters.

France Moves Several Steps Closer To Abolishing Free Speech

Followers of Islam let us know what's on their minds (Image Source)

After colluding with his political opponents to deny French voters their democratic choice, the President of France, le petit crapaud Francois Hollande is now busy trying to abolish free speech so that the important issues that concern rank and file voters cannot be discussed in public or in the media.

Recently there has been an upsurge in support for political parties that promise to defend national sovereignty in European Union member states, and a public opinion backlash against the EU's 'open doors' immigration policy that has seen some European towns, cities and even smaller nations so inundated with new arrivals from outside the EU, undocumented travellers claiming they are refugees or asylum seekers (when in fact they are nothing but economic migrants and as such should go through the lengthy process of applying for residency visas and work permits, that infrastructures that have served stable and culturally homogeneous populations for decades are overwhelmed.

Political elites and supra national bureaucracies now find themselves on the back foot, even the politically correct idiotocracies of Germany and Sweden have had to reimpose border controls. It’s becoming harder to control information and ensure the fragile, synthetic, politically correct consensus holds together. News is controlled, propaganda is presented as fact and now in France, anarchic, liberty loving France, as well as in Britain, Germany, Sweden, The Netherlands, and in the USA and Australia, socialist politicians are openly discussing the abolition of free speech. This is intellectual terrorism, war by the state against the liberty of the people.

A history of lies and cover-ups, character assassinations, political slight-of-hand, false flag deceptions, covert surveillance and operations by government agencies, politicians whose loyalties are to corporate sponsors rather than voters – these things have been the modus operandi of organized crime and ruling elites for centuries.

Putting aside history’s biggest frauds though, the driving force behind this authoritarian trend is the elite's paranoid fear of losing their grip on power because the masses are well informed enough to see through the deceptions, manipulation and bullshit. By suppressing their opponents ability to criticize government policy and performance, question dodgy 'science' such as climate change and genetically modified food crops or misleading statistics such as the figures which purport to show mass immigration improves economic performance, political elites and their media poodles aim to eliminate any alternative analysis and opinion.

A significant portion of the population are so brainwashed with the post - Marxist ideology of the politically correct consensus that the media only have to apply the completely open-ended, arbitrary, and usually incorrect label of "racist", "extremist", homophobic" or "Islamophobic" to the expression of perfectly reasonable ideas in everyday speech and public discourse and a dozen "left wing" hate - mobs will spring up in the streets and on social media. The powers that be want to wind back the clock, where a pre-internet, monolithic corporate media cartel held a monopoly on ideas.

France has currently edged into the lead in this inter-governmental effort (see below), the preliminary assault began this past fall with British Prime Minster David Cameron publicly announcing on two separate occasions, that all of these so-called ‘conspiracy theories’ (anything which challenges the official orthodoxy) should be deemed “extremist” and equivalent to “terrorism” and should be purged from society on the grounds of ‘national security’. The first came with Cameron’s warped speech at the UN, and afterwards, a similar charge was made by the UK leader against anyone who dares press the issue of institutional paedophilia and child abuse.

Latest NSA Spying Scandal: White House Spied On US Congress.

Has anyone else noticed how Obama always never knows anything about it? (Image source)

During the aftermath of Ed Snowden's NSA snooping revelations which revealed the US had been spying on its closest allies for years, Barack Hussein Obama announced he had banned eavesdropping by U.S. government agencies on leaders of US allies and promised he would begin to curtail the collection of Americans' phone data in a series of limited reforms.

Below are a few key lines from a speech Obama made in January, 2014:

Our capabilities help protect not only our nation, but our friends and our allies, as well. But our efforts will only be effective if ordinary citizens in other countries have confidence that the United States respects their privacy, too. And the leaders of our close friends and allies deserve to know that if I want to know what they think about an issue, I’ll pick up the phone and call them, rather than turning to surveillance.

In other words, just as we balance security and privacy at home, our global leadership demands that we balance our security requirements against our need to maintain the trust and cooperation among people and leaders around the world.

The bottom line is that people around the world, regardless of their nationality, should know that the United States is not spying on ordinary people who don’t threaten our national security, and that we take their privacy concerns into account in our policies and procedures. This applies to foreign leaders as well.

Unsurprisingly the president was lying, and the privacy concerns of "people around the world" have clearly never once been taken into account in Obama's domestic or foreign policy decisions.

Three days before, Senator and Democratic presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders sent an email to the NSA Chief Keith Alexander asking if the NSA 'has or is currently spying on members of the US Congress or other American elected officials.' The letter defined spying as including "gathering metadata on calls made from official or personal phones, content from websites visited or emails sent, or collecting any other data from a third party not made available to the general public in the regular course of business."

The response: the National Security Agency's director, responding to questions from independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, says the government is not spying on Congress.... "Nothing NSA does can fairly be characterized as 'spying on members of Congress or other American elected officials." Alexander wrote in the letter, dated Friday and released Tuesday.

The former NSA head also lied, but that's very clear from the way he qualifies his response. Nothing NSA does can fairly be characterized as 'spying. Clearly Alexander's definition of spying is different to the one cited by Sanders.

In the latest Wall Street Journal report on the NSA's spying scandal, it is reported that even though Obama announced two years ago he would curtail eavesdropping on friendly heads of state, the spying continues and "behind the scenes, the White House decided to keep certain allies under close watch. Topping the list was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu."

The spying, or counterespionage (which is not the same as spying at all - ahem), was necessary 'in order to facilitate the US-Iran nuclear negotiations and deal' which took place this summer over Netanyahu's firm objection to scuttle any lifting of the Iran embargo (an embargo which Iran had skirted for years by importing billions of dollars worth of gold from Turkey via Dubai).

That in itself would not be quite so scandalous considering the frosty diplomatic relations between the two nations in recent years, if it didn't also involve the direct and indirect spying by the NSA and the executive branch, on members of Congress ...

The National Security Agency’s targeting of Israeli leaders and officials also swept up the contents of some of their private conversations with U.S. lawmakers and American-Jewish groups. That raised fears—an “Oh-s— moment,” one senior U.S. official said—that the executive branch would be accused of spying on Congress.

White House officials believed the intercepted information could be valuable to counter Mr. Netanyahu’s campaign. They also recognized that asking for it was politically risky. So, wary of a paper trail stemming from a request, the White House let the NSA decide what to share and what to withhold, officials said. “We didn’t say, ‘Do it,’ ” a senior U.S. official said. "We didn’t say, ‘Don’t do it."

Which explains why for the past two years the Obama administration, which knew this moment was inevitable, has been maintaining an attitude of abject incompetence, claiming it had no idea anything like this happened. In fact, as the Bezos Post reported in late 2013, "Obama didn’t know about surveillance of U.S.-allied world leaders until summer "of 2013. That too was a lie.

Captured ISIS fighter says ‘trained in Turkey, ISIS thinks it’s safer than Syria’

from Sputnik News, Turkey - translated by Rob H.

Turkey is training Islamic State terrorists in a camp disguised as a training ground for the Free Syrian Army, a 20-year-old jihadist captured by the Kurdish YPG told Sputnik. The prisoner said Ankara’s help to the “moderate” Syrian opposition is not as innocent as portrayed.

Captured by the Kurdish People’s Protection Unit (YPG) fighters in Northern Syria in November, Abdurrahman Abdulhadi, a Syrian national-turned Daesh (Islamic State) fighter, says he was trained in Turkey before receiving his first assignment with Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

The YPG maintains external security in the three Democratic Union Party (PYD) run areas, and is fighting Islamist groups, primarily Jabhat al-Nusra and IS. The PYD, an offshoot of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in Turkey, has effectively been ruling parts of Syria after government troops were forced to withdraw from the areas in 2012. With special permission from the local Kurdish authorities, Russian journalists received first-hand testimony that Turkey is “a friend” of Islamic State.

“They only appear to be enemies, however, they are friends,” the 20-year-old Abdulhadi, whose brother, Til Berak, is still fighting for IS told Sputnik Turkey. While Turkish nationals constitute only about “10 percent” of jihadists he had come across, the prisoner said Turkey is actively training Islamic State fighters.

“In August 2014, I was training in the Turkish town of Adana with one of ISIL’s Emirs,” Abdulhadi said, adding his month-long training was completed with 60 other fighters in a camp “not far from the airport.”

The captured IS soldier said military training was conducted by two officers and one of them only “spoke Turkish, so another one had to translate for him.

“Once a week we had shooting classes where we were taught to use Kalashnikovs, machine guns and other arms,” the 20 year-old said.“We were trained in Turkey because ISIL’s command thought it was safer here than in Syria because of the bombardments there.”

While the camp was officially declared to be one of the training grounds for the Free Syrian Army, the YPG prisoner says,“all sixty of those who were there were ISIL members.”

“These were Syrian citizens, many of whom arrived in Turkey in search for a job initially, but later joined Daesh,” he explained.

After completing his training, Abdulhadi was tasked with escorting Syrians who wanted to join the jihad.

The prisoner also revealed that IS is now receiving ammunition in trucks disguised as non-military cargo. He said that such low-level fighters as him have no idea where the arms come from.

“Weapons were brought to us in civilian cars, not in military ones because fighter jets might have bombed them. ISIL is now mostly using civilian vehicles. I’ve heard they put vegetables on top of boxes with ammunition, so that war planes do not spot them.”

MAIN KEYWORDS: ISIS >> Jihad >> Syria >> Terror

We Will Never Defeat Terrorists While Idiots Like This Are Allowed To Hold Public Office

Lets face it, the culture of politically correct thinking and white guilt thar prevails in the public sector is the biggest factor working in support of Jihadism and the globalist elite's push to destabilise civilised nations as a means of smoothing the way to creation of a global government. Here's what I mean:

Syria: The barabarity of ISIS
The real agenda driving war in Syria
Syria: US and UK Hypocrisy in demanding Assad must go
Bid to depose Assad is proxy war with Russia for US
Is Syria the biggest US foreign policy blunder ever?

Is The World Turning Against The New World Order Elitists

ISIS have been exposed as a terrorist group created in the West (Image source)

While the European Union itself seems to be moving inexorably towards becoming a bureaucratic dictatorship, European leaders appear to have taken some major steps in 2015 towards rejecting the hegemony of the bully - boy regime in Washington DC. The decision to resist threats and pressure from the USA and join the Chinese initiated Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) was led by the UK, usually the USA's principal ally, and was quickly followed by France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and other EU members.

France and Germany made their own stand, and in rejecting the Washington attempt to start a war in the Ukraine by by-passing the US and directly negotiating the Minsk Peace accords with Russia, probably thwarted US hopes of triggering armed conflict in the European continent, on Russia's southern border.

The plunge in oil prices from over $70 a barrel late last year to the $30 range recently will start hitting the New World Order gangsters in January as their one year price hedges contracts begin to expire.

Elsewhere meanwhile, Erdogan and NATO and even the fascist police state in America continue to smell like a truckload of rotting corpses. If you have not smelled it yet, you have not been paying much attention to current events.

Erdogan and NATO have made a deal with the New World Order and backed ISIS both morally and materially, and now they find themselves politically naked in front of the entire world. Even Turkish journalists and intellectuals are commenting that their government has betrayed them.

Gordon Duff has recently reported for Veterans Today that: “Turkey is training Islamic State terrorists in a camp disguised as a training ground for the Free Syrian Army, a 20-year-old jihadist captured by the Kurdish YPG told Sputnik.”

This is not farfetched at all. Have a look at this:

"An ISIS commander was killed in Salahuddin province and his body was searched. A cell phone retrieved from the corpse revealed messages from Turkish intelligence services proving the NATO country was providing security for ISIS militants when they traveled between Turkey and Iraq. This is the second NATO country implicated in assisting ISIS troops. The first was Canada.

The IS commander was killed by Hashd al-Shaabi, a loyalist volunteer force. Jabbar al-Ma’mouri, a leader within the force made the announcement. He said, ‘The mobile phone also contains other important information which cannot be disclosed now, and it has been delivered to the specialized security groups for further scrutiny…’

While the western media seems to be overlooking and downplaying NATO support for the Islamic State, some senior US officials are speaking out. Former US Department of State senior adviser David Phillips said, ‘Turkey’s role has not been ambiguous — it has overtly supported the ISIL. It has provided logistical support, money, weapons, transport and healthcare to wounded warriors.’”

So, we can definitely conclude that the New World Order failed in 2015. Those who were also pessimistic throughout the year should take copious note: things can get better, despite the fact that the New World Order exerts an enormously powerful influence on politics.

New media, by reporting aspects of the news 'The Controllers' do not want to public to be aware of (such as The Obama administration's support for ISIS) are certainly making a difference, and we all should prepare to up our game 2016 because the propaganda machines will go into overdrive and there will be even more hired trolls in comment threads trying to undermine anything that challenges the orthodox view) We must show The Control Freaks that we and our readers are not the frightened, infantile idiots they assume the masses to be and will not be intimidated by their scaremongering. We know who our real enemies are.


Jacob Rothschild Says Putin “A Traitor To The New World Order”

Jacob Rothschild, patriarch of the megarich banking family, and a leading proponent of the drive to create a global authoritarian government made up of people drawn from the corporate and financial elite, has accused Russian president Vladimir Putin of being a "traitor to the New World Order". Evidence we have suggests the elitist conspiracy sees Russia as an obstacle that must be removed before its plan for a global government can be completed

Soros Attacks Trump: The New World Order Are Afraid ...

The Political, Academic and Financial Establishment (for satirical purposes, The New World Order) which has conducted a campaign of destabilising the economic and social systems of developed nations as part of their push for a global government, has become very afraid of what is happening in the battle to become Republican Party candidate in next years US Presidential election. The big guns are now being wheeled out to dislodge The GOP's nightmare scenario as billionaire gobshite and combover king Donald Trump continues to increase his lead in the polls and starts to look like a serious contender for the Presidency itself.

Is the prospect of a Trump Presidency all that frightening for ordinary punter? You only have to look at the people most determined to stop his and derail his campaign before votes start to be cast to realise he can't be all bad.
Writing in an op-ed for The Guardian, billionaire puppet-master George Soros (a billionaire socialist - and look how many of those we have using their wealth to influence politics these days, and the disastrous consequences of their globalist interventions for working class people) urges Americans "to resist the siren song of the likes of Donald Trump," adding that "the terrorists and demagogues want us to be scared. We mustn’t give in."

Well you said it George, you cold blooded old reptillian. "The terrorists and demagugues want uis to be scared." And so you, demagogue and sponsor of terrorism that you are, publish scaremongering bullshit like this in the hope of ensuring The Republicans field another neo-con nonentity against the Democrat daemagogues favoured prostitute, Hillary ugly - face Clinton, aka the butcher of Baghdad, who should she win the presidency will be the first to take office having already established a record as a traitor, war criminal and mass murderer.

Nigerian President Lies: We Have 'Won the War’ Against Boko Haram.

President Buhari (left) seeks dialogue with Boko Haram rebels (Image source)

Recently elected Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari (pictured), who used a campaign based on fearmongering to replace the Christian dominated government of President Goodluck Jonathan with a Muslim dominated regime says that his armed forces have met the December deadline set for defeating the jihadi terror group Boko Haram and that the Islamists are no longer capable of mounting a serious attack against the Nigerian military or population centers. The oft quoted words of Mandy Raice Davis, a prostitute involved in a 1960s political scandal spring to mind. "He would say that wouldn't he?"

Buhari said "I think, technically, we have won the war, Boko Haram is an organized fighting force, I assure you, [but] we have dealt with them."

In the course of delivering a speech to present the 2016 national budget, Buhari said that Boko Haram can no longer marshal forces to attack towns or military installations as they did before, and that the Nigerian military has been reorganized and reequipped. He was careful only to reveal half the picture. While the rebels are not engaging the Nigerian military (which may be due largely to the fact that a Muslim president is in power) they are far from defeated. Boko Haram translates to "death to western education" and as we reported just before Christmas, the group are still very active in northern and eastern Nigeria and neighbouring countries, Niger, Chad, Mali and Senegal where United Nations agencies estimate thousands of schools have been closed and up to a million children forced out of education.

Ironically, on Wednesday (23 December) Boko Haram rebels carried out four attacks on villages in Niger, Chad and Cameroon, killing at least seven people including two soldiers and three civilians in Niger’s southern border town of Abadam. On the same day, Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, reiterated the President’s message that the Nigerian military had met the December deadline promised by Buhari on assuming office.

"Today, I can report that the war against Boko Haram is largely won," Mohammed said to a group of journalists in Lagos.

"I can confidently say this because just recently, I led a group of 33 journalists from both the local and international media to the hot bed of the insurgency, that is, Maiduguri, Kondugua, Kaoure and Bama," he added.

"Today, I can report to you that the entire 70 plus kilometers stretch from Maiduguri to Bama and all the way to Banki which leads to Cameroun and the Central African Republic are in the hands of our gallant troops," he added. (Sarcasm alert! Wow, all of 70 kilometers (about 42 miles) in a country of 950,000 square kilometers (356,000 square miles), that really a comprehensive victory for the government

The minister also said that the Nigerian army had so degraded Boko Haram’s capabilities that the terrorists can no longer hold on to any territory or mount attacks. News reports from agencies including Reuters and Agence France-Presse (AFP) contradict this.

In mitigation of their hyperbolic claims, Nigerian officials highlighted differences between fighting a terror group and conventional warfare, since terrorists can continue launching isolated attacks even when substantially beaten. In other words, as we have always warned, when terrorist groups encounter determined resistance, they simply disperse and regroup in areas where government forces are less well organised. Unlike a war between two armies, an insureection is never ended with military victory. Even in places such as Colombia where a long lasting rebellion was officially ended decades ago, attacks are still mounted by the ideological successors of the rebels.

Mohammed admitted that in Nigeria the jihadists are directing their attacks on soft targets such as schools, parking lots and gathering places, looking to spread fear and panic by killing civilians, mostly women and children. The Boko Haram group, which pledged its allegiance to the Islamic State earlier this year, has killed tens of thousands of people during its six-year rebellion, displacing more than 2 million people in the process.

USA Extends Drone war To Africa

So why we wonder is the USA taking its drone war against the third world into deepest, sub Sahran Africa? There cannot be any reason for it, the cited aim of neutralising Boko Haram is not valid because boko Haram are not a standing army but a guerilla force that strikes and then melts away into the civilian population.

Church of England Begins Drive to Promote Ethnic Minority Clergy, Accusing Itself of ‘Institutional Racism’

Old white clergymen? Young black choirboys and girls? Looks a bit dodgy from here ...

The Church of England has vowed to fast-track black and ethnic minority clergy into positions of authority, accusing itself of institutional racism. The Church will identify a “talent pool” of ethnic minority clergy this year, who will be mentored with the aim of increasing representation among bishops, deans and archdeacons.

Currently there are five black, Asian and ethnic minority (BAME) clergy in leadership positions within the Church, of which John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York, is perhaps the best well known, the Guardian has reported. In addition, approximately three per cent of the last general synod – the Church’s parliament – were from ethnic minorities. A breakdown of the new synod, which has just been elected, has not yet been released.

The figures are in line with the general makeup of the Church’s professional body – 2.8 per cent of clergy overall are from ethnic minorities. There are no statistics on how many ethnic minority congregants worship within the Church of England each week, but the fact that Pentecostal churches, attended predominantly by black Christians, are thriving has been highlighted by those seeking to make a case that the church is institutionally racist, driving congregants away.

They say that the lack of ethnic minority people at the front of England’s churches puts off ethnic minority Christians from worshiping there, and have called for the Church to be more inclusive. (Source: Breitbart, London)

Church Of England accuses itself of institutionalised racism?

And this incorrigible old atheist has gone through most of his irreligious life thinking self flagellation was just a Catholic thing.

Liberal and socialist guilt addiction brings to mind the "we are not worthy" scene in Wayne's World" which is high comedy but does reflect the kind of inferiority complex inflicted on people by the politically correct, culturally Marxist education provided by state controlled education systems. .

Liberals and socialists are guilty of course, guilty of treason, and they deserve its traditional punishment. Especially since they want to drag us all down to a kind of politically correct hell on Earth in which we are all condemned to spend our lives apologising for the (imagined) sins of our forebears.

Rather than allowing The Church of England to introduce racist and homophiliac employment policies that discriminate in favour of ethnic, religious and sexual minorities, all applicants for the clergy should be required to read The Screwtape Letters by C S Lewis. The story takes the form of a series of letters from a senior demon, Screwtape, to his nephew Wormwood, a junior tempter. At one point, reference is made by Screwtape to other juniors as to what they will specialize in. One replies, (I write from memory): I will make men believe that Evil does not exist, to which Screwtape replies, You will have every success. We must picture hell as a state where everyone is perpetually concerned about his own dignity and advancement, where everyone has a grievance, and where everyone lives with the deadly serious passions of envy, self-importance, and resentment.” (C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters)

The Church of England (which was always irrelevant to me and many others) becomes more irrelevant with each day that passes, thanks to the weak, effete, angst - ridden hand-wringing of politically correct bishops and other senior clergy it has seen fit to elevate over the past decades. It is now just one more political enterprise, whose leaders have abandoned the notion of serving communities in favour of serving their own interests and their own self righteousness, much like the majority of registered charity organisations, the directors of which line their own pockets and live the high life on expenses while ensuring very little of the available revenue goes to doing good.

The C of E's problems seem manifold and a total craptangle, until you realise that the fundamental cause is simply that they are no longer primarily Christian. They are definitely religious, but, like the Roman Catholic church and all other hierarchical ecclesiastical organisations which crave political influence in the modern world, any residual commitment to the core values of Christianity itself has to compete with any number of other 'practical' considerations. They are as much the Church of Community Cohesion, The Church Of Multiculturalism, or the Church of Human Rights and Social Justice, as they are a church of believers in Jesus. Worthy, perhaps, but no more Christian than any other philanthropic organisation.

The Gold Scandal That Goes To The Very Top

Dubai, wealth and privilege rub shoulders with corruption and dodgy dealing (Image source)

Best known known for luxury shopping, over-the-top architecture including the world's tallest building, a lively social scene, and a facade of secular open - mindedness, Dubai ought to be even better known for the underbelly of corruption and unrestricted criminality among the billionaires, oligarchs, princes, shieks and sultans, who quietly dominate dominate the global power and financial structure and have set up bases there because the local Shiek take a very benign view of anything that earns money for Dubai without actually breaking any laws in Dubai (and Dubai has very few laws covering offshore activities of financial traders).

First, the background.

Only a few short ago Iran was a pariah state subject to international financial sanctions due to its nuclear weapons program. Israel had repeatedly threatened it would attack preemptively to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
Iran had to find ways to keep its economy running, and in order to circumvent these sanctions, it resorted to the oldest trade currency known: gold.

This, in itself, is not surprising nor is it news which rogue state Iran collaborated with to breach the international embargo and obtain the gold needed to finance trade with other countries, notably those along the Pacific Rim. A Reuters article from October 2012 explained, in broad terms, just how Iran's intricate smuggling operation worked.

To see one of Iran's financial lifelines at work, pay a visit to Istanbul's Ataturk International Airport and find a gate for a flight to Dubai. Couriers carrying millions of dollars worth of gold bullion in their luggage have been flying from Istanbul to Dubai, where the gold is shipped on to Iran, according to industry sources with knowledge of the business.

The sums involved are enormous. Official Turkish trade data suggests nearly $2 billion worth of gold was sent to Dubai on behalf of Iranian buyers in August. The shipments help Tehran manage its finances in the face of Western financial sanctions.

The sanctions, imposed over Iran's disputed nuclear program, have largely frozen it out of the global banking system, making it hard for it to conduct international money transfers. By using physical gold, Iran can continue to move its wealth across borders.

"Every currency in the world has an identity, but gold means value without identity. The value is absolute wherever you go," said a trader in Dubai with knowledge of the gold trade between Turkey and Iran.

The identity of the ultimate destination of the gold in Iran is not known. But the scale of the operation through Dubai and its sudden growth suggest the Iranian government plays a role.

The Dubai trader and other sources familiar with the business spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity, because of the political and commercial sensitivity of the matter.

Iran sells oil and gas to Turkey, with payments made to state Iranian institutions. U.S. and European banking sanctions ban payments in U.S. dollars or euros so Iran gets paid in Turkish lira. Lira are of limited value for buying goods on international markets but ideal for a gold buying spree in Turkey.

Three years ago then, Turkey was buying oil from Iran and paying in gold. Now with sanctions on Iran lifted, The Turkish family of Recep Erdogan are taking oil from ISIS and paying in dollars, for the simple reason that there is no banking embargo against the Islamic State like there was against Iran in 2012. One almost wonders why the international community was far stricter with Iran than it is with ISIS now.

Direct gold exports to Iran from Turkey, long a major consumer and stockpiler of gold, hit $1.8 billion in July - equivalent to over a fifth of Turkey's entire trade deficit in that month.

In August, however, a sudden plunge in Turkey's direct gold exports to Iran coincided with a leap in its sales of the precious metal to the UAE. Turkey exported a total $2.3 billion worth of gold in August, of which $2.1 billion was gold bullion. Just over $1.9 billion, about 36 metric tons, was sent to the UAE, latest available data from Turkey's Statistics Office shows. In July Turkey exported only $7 million of gold to the UAE. At the same time Turkey's direct gold exports to Iran, which had been fluctuating between $1.2 billion and about $1.8 billion each month since April, slumped to just $180 million in August.

The Dubai-based trader said that from August, direct shipments to Iran were largely replaced by indirect ones through Dubai, apparently because Tehran wanted to avoid publicity.

"The trade from Turkey directly to Iran has stopped because there was just too much publicity around it," said the trader.

However, instead of suddenly having a craving for Turkish gold, Dubai was merely a middleman which would then resell Turkey's gold to Iran, in exchange for a very generous commission.

It is not clear how the gold is moved from Dubai to Iran, but with the two countries only a distance of only about 150 kilometers (100 miles)apart at the shortest sea crossing there is always substantial traffic between the two economies, much of it transported by wooden dhows and other ships crossing the Gulf. And like many other things in Dubai, customs controls can be very lax if 'the right people have been appraised of the geopolitical importance of the trades'.

A gold trader in Turkey said Tehran had shifted to indirect imports because the direct shipments were widely reported in Turkish and international media earlier this year. "Now on paper it looks like the gold is going to Dubai, not to Iran," he said.

Iranian gold buyers may want to conceal their Turkish gold deliveries for fear of attracting attention from the United States, which is pressing countries around the world to shrink their economic ties with Iran.

The buyers may also want to protect their purchases from any possible interference by Turkey's government. Turkey's close relationship with Iran has begun to sour as the two states find themselves on opposite sides of the civil war in Syria.

Fear not: if the family of Turkish President and international illegal oil trader Recep Erdogan were guaranteed, say 5% of the total transaction price, it would turn a blind eye, even if the Ayatollahs were singing lullabies and war chants to Assad in his bedroom.

But why gold?

Simples: while Iran's banks were locked out of SWIFT international money transfer system (until mid-2015 when Obama's historic nuclear deal with Iran was announced and let Iran back into the global financial community), and commerce was virtually impossible in fiat currency terms, the UN sanctions did not prohibit most forms of trade. As a result there was no suggestion that the gold trade involving Dubai was violating international sanctions. In fact, the west tacitly encouraged, and Turkey latched on to this great source of trade arbitrage, and unbridled corruption with both hands.

What should concern us us that the levels of oversight (including electronic surveillance) of markets by Western government and the numbers of 'intelligence gathering' operatives they have on the ground in middle eastern countries, western governments cannot possibly have been unaware of this latest example of Turkey's involvement in the Sunni Muslim plot to establish an Islamic Caliphate, why has nothing been done again. Is it the case once again that the Obama administration has sided with Islamist nutters and left Vladimir Putin to save western civilisation?

Moscow And Beijing Join Forces To Bypass US Dollar In Global Markets, Shift To Gold Trade

Throughout this omnibus volume we have been reporting for several years on the moves by Russia, China, their allies and other nations in the Asia - Pacific zone to bypass the US dollar as the reserve currency for global trade. We have now learned the Russian central bank opened its first overseas office in Beijing on March 14, marking a majot step towards forging a Beijing-Moscow alliance to bypass the US dollar in cross border trading, and to phase-in a gold-backed universal currency of trade.

Fatberg: The Danger That Lurks Down Below.

As I started reading a story on Russia Today's UK News page, at the end of paragraph two something struck a chord in my memory.

from Russia Today:

A giant “fatberg” found in a London sewer could have put houses at risk of flooding over the festive period, Thames Water has warned.

The huge mass of waste products, made up of grease, fat, and items which do not break down in sewage water such as face wipes and diapers, was found underneath Leather Lane in Clerkenwell.

Thames Water said if the fatberg had not been discovered, it could well have caused sewage pipes to burst and flood homes.

Following the discovery on December 19, teams of specialist engineers have worked throughout the week to break down the mass into smaller pieces and get rid of the numerous items that had become stuck in the grease.

And then it came to me, this is why the story stirred my memory:

DOWN BELOW by Sidney Carter
(tune: Sam Hall)

When you're working in the dark, down below
Underneath St James Park, down below
When you're working in the dark
Underneath St James park
It isn't half a lark, down below

Now it isn't hard to tell,down below
If it's Bow or Clerkenwell, down below
Cos Bow and Clerkenwell
Has a different kind of smell
And you knows it pretty well, down below


Come down Covent Garden way, down below
in the merry month of May, down below
The fragrance of the flowers
Gives us many happy hours
And we sing a roundelay, down below

When to Billingsgate you come, down below
When to Billingsgate you come, down below
When to Billingsgate you come
Then things really start to hum
And the smell will knock you dumb, down below

And the objects that you find, down below
Serve to exercise the mind, down below
There are watches that wont wind
All wrapped up in bacon rind
And that isn't all you find, down below

Yes there's something in a sewer, down below
What must have a strange allure, down below
The magic of the drains
Is a thing I can't explain
But it's calling me again, down below
Yes it's calling me again, down below

Not a suitable subject for humour (or humor) at Christmas you may think, but people need top be aware of all the many existential treats to our civilization that are out there. Who knows what monstrous life form may evolve from the fatbergs. Obviously there is human and other types on DNA 'Down Below' along with all sorts of dodgy chemicals. Was there an X Files episode about it once?

The London Fatberg (below, image source: The Daily Mail ) is still growing.

Boko Haram Winning On Massive Scale In Northern Nigeria — 1 Million Violently Forced Out of Schools

A school in Nigeraia following a visit by Boko Haram educators who lectured on the superiority of Islamic education

We have not heard much of Boko Haram, the Islamic extremist group operating in Nigeria and neighboring countries Niger, Chad and Mali for a while, most news has been dominated by Syria and the middle east, and and there are neither enough time nor enough resources to report or discuss everything that happens in the world, especially for a little club for old guys who still believe there is more to life than sitting around playing dominoes which is what The Daily Stirrer is.

This lack of reporting however has led to some people, mostly the ill informed but in some cases the delusional to believe Nigeria's new Muslim dominated government has defeated the extremists (see story above). In fact Boko Haram are stronger than ever in northern Nigeria, the area where their strength always lay. Their attacks throughout the year have forced more than 1 million children out of school, heightening the risk they will be abused, abducted or recruited by armed groups, the United Nations children’s agency stated in a press release (Tuesday 22-Dec-15).

(Sarcasm alert: heave sarcasm indulged in at the end of the article)

The conflict has forced the closure of over than 2,000 schools in Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad and Niger, the agency said. Some have been looted or set on fire by the insurgent group whose name means “Western education is sinful.”

“The conflict has been a huge blow for education in the region, and violence has kept many children out of the classroom for more than a year, putting them at risk of dropping out of school altogether,” said Manuel Fontaine, UNICEF’s West and Central Africa Regional Director. "Before the crisis, an estimated 11 million children of primary school age were already out of school in the four neighboring countries where Boko Haram stages attacks," he added.

Schools in northeastern Nigeria are reopening, but many classes are overcrowded or the buildings are being used as refuges for people displaced by the conflict. Fear of reprisals is also preventing teachers from going back to classes. About 600 teachers have been killed during Boko Haram’s six-year insurgency, according to the press release.

“The challenge we face is to keep children safe without interrupting their schooling,” Fontaine told reporters. “Schools have been targets of attack, so children are scared to go back to the classroom, yet the longer they stay out of school, the greater the risks of being abused, abducted and recruited by armed groups.”

Boko Haram’s insurrection has so far resulted in about 20,000 dead and 2.3 million displaced from their homes, according to Amnesty International and United Nations estimates.

This story made us Stirrers sit up and go HUH, WHAT? Sub Saharan Africans, the most enlightened and wonderfully wonderful ethnic group on the planet are killing, raping, kidnapping, enslaving other Sub Saharan African's and destroying schools, homes and villages in the name of Islam?

Haven't they heard that #BlackLivesMatter or that Islam is the Religion of Peace?

They should make viewing BBC News 24 and BBC current affairs programmes and reading The Guardian or the New York Times compulsory for all Africans in Africa .... sounds like the bastards need some brainwashing about how everything is Whitey's fault.

Or perhaps this is just a case of modern day Africans behaving exactly as their ancestors have since Time began.Maybe it's cultural?

Hersh Bombshell: US Military Defied Obama, Shared Intelligence With Assad

It is widely agreed that Seymour Hersh is one of the few remaining investigative journalists prepared to go out on a limb and challenge the government / financial complex. A quick Google or Bing search on his name reveals the lengths to which government officials, corporate public relations chiefs and mainstream media will go o discredit him.

In May 2015, Seymour Hersh overturned the highly suspect official narrative on the death of Osama bin Laden and in the process created a media firestorm prompting a response from the White House. (Boggart Abroad knows from a reliable source Bin Laden died between 2001 of an untreatable kidney condition that had kept him hospitalised for several years). Former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto revealed this when speaking to UK Broadcaster David Frost in an interview for Al Jazeera [YouTube clip], although the details she gives differ slightly from those we have, the stories are broadly the same. Though the revalation was not picked up by western media, Ms. Bhutto was assassinated a few weeks after that interview.

Now while we would obviously argue that the man taken out by US Navy Seals was not Bin Laden and the operation was staged as a public relations exercise, Hersh's revelations about the events leading to what was presented as the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden eighteen months after Hersh exposed the Obama administration's lies about the Syrian sarin gas attack that would have been used as justification for airstrikes against the Assad regime in 2013 had not Vladimir Putin warned Obama directly that the consequences of attacking Assad would be dire.

We have always said the Syrian conflict was a proxy war waged by the USA against Russia and it seems that unfortunate country, having been ravaged by US and Saudi Arabian sponsored terrorists for four years is now the theatre for what amounts to World War III with the FUKUS axis (France, United Kingdom, USA)and Saudi Arabia,Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Turkey and Iraq ranged against Russia, and Iran all involved at some level.

Three factions are forming in the Mid-East: 1) Russia, Iran, Syria, and Iraq; 2) Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar; 3) Britain, France, and the USA (with a half hearted contribution from Germany.

Zero Hedge described the situation thus:

The first alliance is pro-Assad, anti-terror. The second is anti-Assad, pro-Sunni extremist. The third is anti-Assad (although less vehemently so), anti-terror (conspiracy theories aside). Note that we've left the US out. Why? Because Washington is now stuck. The US wants desperately to maintain coordination with Ankara, Riyadh, and Doha, but between stepped up media coverage of Saudi Arabia's role in underwriting extremism (via the promotion of Wahhabism) and hightened scrutiny on Erdogan's role in financing terrorists, the position is becoming increasingly untenable. But aligning solely with the UK, France, and Germany entails adopting a more conciliatory approach to Assad - just ask Berlin which, as we reported on Friday, is now working with Assad's intelligence police and may soon establish a base in Damascus.

According to Seymour Hersh’s latest article not everybody in Washington is happy with Obama's aligning the USA with Sunni Muslim extremist regimes such as the absolute monarchies of Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Some elements within the US military have been tacitly cooperating with Assad for over two years, having becoming concerned about Turkey and Saudi Arabia's support for ISIS and other extremist groups.

In a new 6,600 word piece, Hersh details what he says was a covert plot by the Joint Chiefs of Staff to undercut the “Assad must go” line promoted and pursued by the Obama administration and the CIA on the way to sharing valuable intelligence with the Assad government. The report also verifies the role of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and especially Turkey in arming and financing al-Nusra and ISIS.
