Scapegoating Iran

I stated in my MONDAY rant that the psychotic state if Israel was now working hard in getting their nice little war off and running against the innocent nation of Iran by recently claiming the absurdity that Iran was about to attack Israel from "bases in Syria"....

I did not know whether to laugh or to cry at that absurdity, for anyone with even the least bit of Geographical knowledge can clearly see that Syria is NOT directly linked to Iran at all, and the transference and placement of Iranian forces in Syrian territory would require sending those forces across Turkish territory (I doubt if the Turks would allow such a transit) OR across Iraqi territory that is mostly held by Kurdish forces that have unwittingly allowed themselves to be slaves to US/Israeli interests.... That and the fact that the only other method for placement of Iranian forces into Syria would be by air or by ship that would be ultra-expensive and easily monitored by US/Israeli listening posts across the Middle East..  And yet we find NO reports of "heavy equipment" shipments by air or ship from Iranian ports to ports in Syria or airbases in Syria... The reality is of course that the Iranians are able to send only military advisers and a few specialists to Syria to assist the Syrian government forces in their want to free their nation from the US/Israel/NATO scourge....That is fact, and therefore the claims that "Iran is about to attack Israel" from Syrian bases is truly a ridiculous laugher....

But, Israel is indeed hell bent on having Iran destroyed and to have its American slaves do all the fighting and dying to achieve that destruction.... It is the sickness of Israel that they are bound and determined to achieve their total hegemony over the entire Middle East through their blueprint called 'Securing The Realm" that calls for all major adversaries of Israel dominance in the region to be destroyed and to use their American poodles to achieve that dream...

I came across the following most interesting article that I definitely want to share here with my own readers.. This one comes courtesy of Lasha Darkmoon's website, at www.darkmoon.me, and is written by Chris Hedges... It is entitled: "Scapegoating Iran" and indeed gives a pretty good understanding of the present situation in the Middle East, how the US got into the mess in the first place and where their phoney "war on terror" sits at this point in time, and how the US is indeed getting ready for the much planned out war against the innocent nation of Iran itself... Here is that article and I have my own thoughts and comments to follow:

Scapegoating Iran

By Chris Hedges
June 17, 2018 “Information Clearing House” –  NEW YORK—Seventeen years of war in the Middle East and what do we have to show for it? Iraq after our 2003 invasion and occupation is no longer a unified country. Its once modern infrastructure is largely destroyed, and the nation has fractured into warring enclaves. We have lost the war in Afghanistan. The Taliban is resurgent and has a presence in over 70 percent of the country. Libya is a failed state. Yemen after three years of relentless airstrikes and a blockade is enduring one of the world’s worst humanitarian disasters.
The 500 “moderate” rebels we funded and armed in Syria at a cost of $500 million are in retreat after instigating a lawless reign of terror. The military adventurism has cost a staggering $5.6 trillion as our infrastructure crumbles, austerity guts basic services and half the population of the United States lives at or near poverty levels. The endless wars in the Middle East are the biggest strategic blunder in American history and herald the death of the empire.
Someone has to be blamed for debacles that have resulted in hundreds of thousands of dead, including at least 200,000 civilians, and millions driven from their homes. Someone has to be blamed for the proliferation of radical jihadist groups throughout the Middle East, the continued worldwide terrorist attacks, the wholesale destruction of cities and towns under relentless airstrikes and the abject failure of U.S. and U.S.-backed forces to stanch the insurgencies. You can be sure it won’t be the generals, the politicians such as George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, the rabid neocons such as Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz and John Bolton who sold us the wars, the Central Intelligence Agency, the arms contractors who profit from perpetual war or the celebrity pundits on the airwaves and in newspapers who serve as cheerleaders for the mayhem.
“The failed policies, or lack of policies, of the United States, which violate international law, have left the Middle East in total chaos,” the Iranian ambassador to the United Nations, Gholamali Khoshroo, told me when we met in New York City. “The United States, to cover up these aggressive, reckless and costly policies, blames Iran. Iran is blamed for their failures in Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Lebanon.”
The Trump administration “is very naive about the Middle East and Iran,” the ambassador said. “It can only speak in the language of threats—pressure, sanctions, intervention. These policies have failed in the region. They are very risky and costly. Let the Americans deal with the problems of the countries they have already invaded and attacked. America lacks constructive power in the Middle East. It is unable to govern even a village in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen or Syria. All it can do is use force and destructive power. This U.S. administration wants the Middle East and the whole world to bow to it. This is not a policy conducive to sound relationships with sovereign states, especially those countries that have resisted American influence.”
“The plan to arm ‘moderate’ rebels in Syria was a cover to topple [Syrian President] Bashar al-Assad,” the ambassador went on. “The Americans knew there were no ‘moderate’ rebels. They knew these weapons would get into the hands of terrorist groups like Daesh [Islamic State], Al-Nusra and their affiliates. Once again, the American policy failed. The Americans succeeded in destroying a country. They succeeded in creating bloodbaths. They succeeded in displacing millions of people. But they gained nothing. The sovereignty of Syria is expanding by the day. It is hard to imagine what President Trump is offering as a strategy in Syria. One day, he says, ‘I will move out of Syria very soon, very quickly.’ The next day he says, ‘If Iran is there, we should stay.’ I wonder if the American taxpayers know how much of their money has been wasted in Iraq, Syria and Yemen?”
Trump’s unilateral decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, although Iran was in compliance with the agreement, was the first salvo in this effort to divert attention from these failures to Iran. Bolton, the new national security adviser, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, along with Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, advocate the overthrow of the Iranian government, with Giuliani saying last month that Trump is “as committed to regime change as we [an inner circle of presidential advisers] are.”
“The Iran nuclear deal was possible following several letters by President Barack Obama assuring the Iranian leadership that America had no intention of violating Iranian sovereignty,” Ambassador Khoshroo said. “America said it wanted to engage in a serious dialogue on equal footing and mutual interests and concerns. These assurances led to the negotiations that concluded with the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action]. From the beginning, however, America was not forthcoming in its dealings with us on the JCPOA. President Obama wanted the agreement to be implemented, but he did not want it implemented in its full capacity. Congress, on the day JCPOA was implemented, passed a law warning Europeans that were doing business with Iran. The staffs of companies had to apply for a visa to the United States if they had traveled to Iran for business purposes. This began on the first day. The Americans were not always very forthcoming. OFAC [Office of Foreign Funds Control] gave ambiguous answers to many of the questions that companies had about sanctions, but at least in words the Obama administration supported the JCPOA and saw the agreement as the basis for our interactions.”
“President Trump, however, even as a candidate, called the agreement ‘the worst deal America ever made,’ ” the ambassador said. “He called this deal a source of embarrassment for America. Indeed, it was not the deal but America’s unilateral decision to walk away from an agreement that was supported by the United Nations Security Council, and in fact co-sponsored and drafted by the United States, that is the source of embarrassment for America. To walk away from an international agreement and then threaten a sovereign country is the real source of embarrassment since Iran was in full compliance while the U.S. never was.”
“In 2008, the Israelis told the world that Iran was only some days away from acquiring an atomic bomb,” he said. “The Israelis said there had to be a military strike to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. What has happened since? During the last two years, there have been 11 reports by the IAEA [International Atomic Energy Agency] clearly confirming and demonstrating Iran’s full compliance with the JCPOA. All of the accusations [about] Iran using nuclear facilities for military purposes were refuted by the IAEA as well as by Europe, Russia, China, along with many other countries in Asia, Latin America, Africa. America is concerned about Iranian influence in the region and seeks to contain Iran because the U.S. administration realizes that America’s policies in the Middle East have failed. Their own statements about Iran repeatedly contradict each other. One day they say, ‘Iran is so weak it will collapse,’ and the next day they say, ‘Iran is governing several Arab capitals in the Middle East.’ ”
Iran announced recently that it has tentative plans to produce the feedstock for centrifuges, the machines that enrich uranium, if the nuclear deal is not salvaged by European members of the JCPOA. European countries, dismayed by Trump’s decision to withdraw from the agreement, are attempting to renegotiate the deal, which imposes restrictions on Iran’s nuclear development in exchange for the lifting of international sanctions.
Why go to war with a country that abides by an agreement it has signed with the United States? Why attack a government that is the mortal enemy of the Taliban, along with other jihadist groups, including al-Qaida and Islamic State, that now threaten us after we created and armed them? Why shatter the de facto alliance we have with Iran in Iraq and Afghanistan? Why further destabilize a region already dangerously volatile?
The architects of these wars are in trouble. They have watched helplessly as the instability and political vacuum they caused, especially in Iraq, left Iran as the dominant power in the region. Washington, in essence, elevated its nemesis. It has no idea how to reverse its mistake, beyond attacking Iran. Those both in the U.S. and abroad who began or promoted these wars see a conflict with Iran as a solution to their foreign and increasingly domestic dilemmas.
For example, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, mired in corruption scandals, hopes that by fostering a conflict with Iran he can divert attention away from investigations into his abuse of power and the massacres Israel carries out against Palestinians, along with Israel’s accelerated seizure of Palestinian land.
“The most brutal regime is now in power in Israel,” the Iranian ambassador said. “It has no regard for international law or humanitarian law. It violates Security Council resolutions regarding settlements, its capital and occupation. Look at what Israel has done in Gaza in the last 30 days. On the same day America was unlawfully transferring its embassy to Jerusalem, 60 unarmed Palestinian protesters were killed by Israeli snipers. [Israelis] were dancing in Jerusalem while the blood of unarmed Palestinians was running in Gaza. The Trump administration gives total support and impunity to Israel. This angers many people in the Middle East, including many in Saudi Arabia. It is a Zionist project to portray Iran as the main threat to peace in the Middle East. Israel introducing Iran as a threat is an attempt to divert attention from the crimes this regime is committing, but these too are failed policies that will backfire. They are policies designed to cover weakness.”
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, facing internal unrest, launched the war in Yemen as a vanity project to bolster his credentials as a military leader. Now he desperately needs to deflect attention from the quagmire and humanitarian disaster he created.
“Saudi Arabia, as part of [the civil war in Yemen], has a tactical and strategic cooperation with Israel against Iran,” the ambassador said. “But the Saudi regime is defying the sentiments of its own people. How long will this be possible? For three years now, Saudi Arabia, assisted by the United States, has bombed the Yemeni people and imposed a total blockade that includes food and medicine. Nothing has been resolved. Once again, Iran is blamed for this failure by Saudi Arabia and the United States in Yemen. Even if Iran wanted to help the Yemenis, it is not possible due to the total blockade. The Yemeni people asked for peace negotiations from the first day of the war. But Saudi military adventurism and its desire to test its military resolve made any peaceful solution impossible. The U.S. and the U.K. provide military and logistical support, including cluster bombs to be used by the Saudis in Yemen. The Emiratis are bombing Yemen. All such actions are doomed to failure since there is no military solution in Yemen. There is only a political solution. Look at the targets of Saudi airstrikes in Yemen: funerals. Wedding ceremonies. Agricultural fields. Houses. Civilians. How do the Saudis expect the Yemeni people to greet those who bomb them? With hugs? The war has cost a lot of money, and Trump responds by saying [to Saudi Arabia], ‘Oh you have money. [Paraphrasing here.] Please buy our ‘beautiful weapons.’ They are killing beautiful children with these ‘beautiful’ weapons. It is a disaster. It is tragic.”
And then there is President Donald Trump, desperate for a global crusade he can use to mask his ineptitude, the rampant corruption of his administration and his status as an international pariah when he runs for re-election in 2020.
“Of course, blaming and threatening Iran is not new,” the ambassador said. “This has been going on for 40 years. The Iranian people and the Iranian government are accustomed to this nonsense. United States intervention in the internal affairs of Iran goes back a long time, including the [Iranian] war with Iraq, when the United States supported Saddam Hussein. Then America invaded Iraq in 2003 in their so-called ‘intervention for democracy and elimination of WMDs.’ Iran has always resisted and will always resist U.S. threats.”
“America was in Iran 40 years ago,” the ambassador said. “About 100,000 U.S. advisers were in Iran during the rule of the shah, who was among the closest allies of America. America was unable to keep this regime in power because the Iranian people revolted against such dependency and suppression. Since the fall of the shah in 1979, for 40 years, America continued to violate international law, especially the Algeria agreements it signed with Iran in 1981.”
The Algeria Declaration was a set of agreements between the United States and Iran that resolved the Iranian hostage crisis. It was brokered by the Algerian government. The U.S. committed itself in the Algeria Declaration to refrain from interference in Iranian internal affairs and to lift trade sanctions on Iran and a freeze on Iranian assets.
The warmongers have no more of a plan for “regime change” in Iran than they had in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya or Syria. European allies, whom Trump alienated when he walked away from the Iranian nuclear agreement, are in no mood to cooperate with Washington. The Pentagon, even if it wanted to, does not have the hundreds of thousands of troops it would need to attack and occupy Iran. And the idea—pushed by lunatic fringe figures like Bolton and Giuliani—that the marginal and discredited Iranian resistance group Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK), which fought alongside Saddam Hussein in the war against Iran and is viewed by most Iranians as composed of traitors, is a viable counterforce to the Iranian government is ludicrous. In all these equations the 80 million people in Iran are ignored just as the people of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria were ignored. Perhaps they would not welcome a war with the United States. Perhaps if attacked they would resist. Perhaps they don’t want to be occupied. Perhaps a war with Iran would be interpreted throughout the region as a war against Shiism. But these are calculations that the ideologues, who know little about the instrument of war and even less about the cultures or peoples they seek to dominate, are unable to fathom.
“The Middle East has many problems: insecurity, instability, problems with natural resources such as water, etc.,” Khoshroo said. “All of these problems have been made worse by foreign intervention as well as Israel’s lawlessness. The issue of Palestine is at the heart of turmoil in the Middle East for Muslims. Any delay in finding solutions to these wounds in the Middle East exposes this region to more dangerous threats. Americans say they want the Middle East to be free from violent extremism, but this will only happen when the Middle East is free from occupation and foreign intervention. The Americans are selling their weapons throughout the Middle East. They calculate how much money they can earn from destruction. They don’t care about human beings. They don’t care about security or democratic process or political process. This is worrisome.”
“What are the results of American policies in the Middle East?” he asked. “All of the American allies in the region are in turmoil. Only Iran is secure and stable. Why is this the case? Why, during the last 40 years, has Iran been stable? Is it because Iran has no relationship with America? Why is there hostility between Iran and America? Can’t the Americans see that Iran’s stability is important for the region? We are surrounded by Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen. What good would come from destabilizing Iran? What would America get out of that?”


NTS Notes: A very good assessment of the real situation in the middle east by Chris Hedges.... But he misses the fact that the Jews and Israel run America and almost all aspects of America's failed foreign policies..

I for one know that the psychos in Israel are going to get the US into their nice little war against Iran by every means necessary, whether it be by a major false flag operation to blame on Iran (nuclear detonation of Mossad owned bomb in America possibly?) or via the backdoor of an all out war against Syria that will draw both the US and of course Iran into the conflict.....

The facts are that there should be NO hostilities at all between the US and Iran... But since Israel controls America, they have artificially created and are still aggressively pursuing that "hostility" through the Jewish control of the media (the Jew spew media of course) that will continue to attempt to brainwash Americans with the fraud that Iran is this "evil nation" that must be destroyed....

The bottom line is this... All of this rhetoric and false fear of an Iranian nuclear weapon has always been false... It was created to try to brainwash people that Iran is this "terrorist nation" that will use its non-existent "nuclear weapons" against the US and the world... But the facts are again that there is only one nuclear rogue nation on the planet that is armed to the teeth with nuclear weapons (estimates as many as 300+) called Israel that has always threatened the world with nuclear armageddon..... Sadly thanks to the Jew propaganda that fact has always been overlooked as again they are hell bent on Iran's destruction...

Israel Runs America: US Quits United Nations Human Rights Council By Falsely Accusing Council Of Anti-Israeli Bias (Good Riddance)

Israel controls the United States... That readers, and especially those living in the once free United States itself, is absolutely fact... The criminals in that illegal "state" that illegally occupies land in Palestine absolutely drive every aspect of America's domestic and especially its foreign policies... Basically what Israel demands of the US it gets in a heartbeat..... It is sickening to watch that once great superpower continue to grovel and bow down to their Jewish masters and sadly most Americans are just too stupid to realize this as fact..

Well, once again we have definitive proof that the US is absolutely controlled by the criminal machinations of the sick and twisted state of Israel... For according to the following report that comes courtesy of the Southfront website at www.southfront.org, the US has officially quit the United Nations Human Rights Council by claiming that the council is somehow "bias" against the psychotic state of Israel!.... Here is that article, and I do of course have my own thoughts and comments to follow:

US QUITS UN HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL ACCUSING BODY OF ANTI-ISRAEL BIAS


US Quits UN Human Rights Council Accusing Body Of Anti-Israel Bias
US Ambassador to the United Nation Nikki Haley speaks at the US Department of State in Washington DC on June 19, 2018. AFP/Getty Images
On June 19, the US officially announced its decision to quit the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC). The move followed more than a year of US protests against the 47-nation body, mostly aimed at accusing the UNHRC of anti-Israel and anti-US bias.
“For too long, the Human Rights Council has been a protector of human rights abusers and a cesspool of political bias,” Haley said. “Regrettably, it is now clear that our call for reform was not heeded. Human rights abusers continue to serve on and be elected to the council. The world’s most inhumane regimes continue to escape scrutiny, and the council continues politicizing and scapegoating of countries with positive human rights records in an attempt to distract from the abusers in their ranks.”
She described the UN HRC as “a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of human rights.” Haley also accused accused a number of nations of impeding the UNHRC reform.
“When we made it clear we would strongly pursue council reform, these countries came out of the woodwork to oppose it. Russia, China, Cuba, and Egypt all attempted to undermine our reform efforts this past year,” the diplomat said.





​Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on the same day that Israel thanks the US administration for the “bold decision” to quit the UNHRC.

NTS Notes: When I saw and read this article, I thought it was a sick joke... But this has really happened, and once again it shows the entire world who controls the United States...

It is especially sickening to see and watch that horrific and most evil sick bitch, Nimrata Randhawa (Nikki Haley) go in front of the world to once again show how much she loves Israel first and foremost... It is also sickening to hear that witch spew her lies knowing full well that the psychotic state of Israel is responsible for so many horrific crimes against humanity.... Especially in the light of the recent Israeli mass slaughter of peaceful Palestinian protesters in the largest open air concentration camp on planet Earth aka the "Gaza Strip"..

Honestly, I knew this was coming.. The psychos in Israel have long been refusing to adhere to any UN directives and resolutions, and have basically shown themselves to be the most evil rogue nation on planet Earth... Now we see the US has once again bowed to their evil Jewish masters and has joined Israel in that respect...

Israel controls the United States.. Now you know for sure...

Northerntruthseeker Rant For Monday June 18th, 2018



Yes, you are reading it correctly... It is Monday, and time for my belated weekly rant...

I had a pretty good Fathers day yesterday, and I spent the day basically doing NOTHING... No internet surfing, no writings at this blog, no cooking, no work....Just some rest and relaxation.... It felt a bit strange to me considering how much I do on a daily basis, and I was glad for the break....

I read the other day that some sicko feminists out there are trying to do away with "Fathers Day" and all I can tell those idiots and bitches is to fuck right off... Fathers Day, just like Mothers Day, should indeed be a day to celebrate all of the great and hard working fathers out there, and now we have some liberal snowflakes out there trying to do away with it?  I am proud to be a father myself and I want to make sure that some gawd damn sickos out there do not ruin that special day for everyone...

I see that the US Government just released a report the other day outlining some 47 or so points of contention for their concept of "peace" in the Korean Peninsula...Basically the US is now demanding that North Korea abide by every single one of those points for the US to lift its long standing embargo against that isolated country and to have their concept of a "road map" towards eventual reunification of the two Koreas.... I have looked over many of these 47 "demands" and they seem strangely reminiscent of the long list of demands that the US made to the nation of Iran a few months back... And I for the life of me cannot see the North Korean government basically surrender themselves to these demands.....The US wants North Korea to basically give up its nuclear deterrence in exchange for basically nothing in return.... And NO WHERE in that list of demands does it show anything in regards to the US giving full and verifiable "guarantees" that they will never invade North Korea itself..... To me, this shows how underhanded the US government is and how they have absolutely no intentions of living up to the great hype and understanding that was supposedly reached earlier this week when Drumpf met Kim in Singapore....

The trade war between the US, Canada, and Mexico, is of course making all of the headlines up here in Canuckleheadistan, and much of the rhetoric from this fight between Drumpf and that idiot Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been focused on Justin's idiocy and stupidity in regards to his dealings with the US President.... What is happening is that people in this once great nation are finally waking up to the inadequacies of Justin Trudeau in regards to dealing directly with other world leaders, and once again his dealings with Drumpf has made him the laughing stock of not only Canada, but the entire world as well.. .And Justin's Liberal party of stupidity has now done nothing to prevent the US from slapping new tariffs on anything coming in from this nation to the US which will see this nation enter possibly a massive "recession" after July 1st of this year... I can only say "Way to go Justin, you idiot" and I do wonder how in the heck anyone here in Canada actually voted for that moron?

I also see how the UN General Assembly voted overwhelmingly to condemn the psychotic state of Israel for its continuing mass slaughter of innocent civilians in the largest open air prison camp on planet Earth called the Gaza Strip... I also see how so many Israeli kiss butt nations including this one called Canada voted against that resolution, even though luckily the attempts to have that resolution blocked by the strong arming of so many nations by the US has failed miserably..... I also see how that Jewish dick sucking whore, Nikki Haley, was out there screaming her head off at so many nations that they are all "antisemitic" and "Jew haters" for not sucking up to their Jewish masters in Israel.... I for one am glad that the world is waking up to the evils of Israel and what they are doing to the innocent people of Palestine.. The only sad part in all this is that this UN General Assembly vote means diddly squat as the Israelis and of course their minions in the US will ignore that vote and go right on killing the Palestinians....

For the last two years I have been stating in this rant and periodic articles at this blog about the dangers that the civilian population is facing in the still ongoing war in Yemen... But of course just last week that danger has increased at least ten fold with the impending seizure of the last port on the Red Sea through which humanitarian food supplies have been able to reach the starving people of Yemen... But now, the criminal Saudi regime and their Arabic allies are about to capture the port of Al Hudaydah, all food supplies will be cut off and the Houthi forces and civilians in and around the capital city of Sanaa will face an unimaginable famine that could see the death of millions in a very short time.... The hypocrisy of this disaster in fact reached a new low level this last week when apparently the US government has finally taken issue with this crisis and are suddenly "aware" of this situation in regards to the genocide of the Yemen people... But the facts are that the US government has supported this Saudi war of destruction in Yemen for years now, and guaranteed those criminals are lying their asses off now by saying that they are only NOW aware that the Yemen people face mass starvation and genocide?   Hypocrisy indeed!... But the issue here is of course what should be done in this situation, and my suggestion has always been to have the UN take full control of that port to make sure that the food supplies keep flowing....But is it now too late, for reports over the last few days indicate that the Saudi led forces are now fighting in the city to seize the port itself.....When the port falls, we will see the genocide of millions of Yemen civilians through starvation take place.....

I have been saying over and over again for the last decade that the entire "war on terror" is nothing but a sham and a fraud... And yet with proof of that bullshit constantly coming forward again and again, it has been an uphill battle still to reach the gullible idiots out there that actually believe that there are real "terrorists" everywhere.... But the facts should be plain and simple that the US and Israel have been at least 99% behind every "terrorist attack" that we have seen over the last 1/2 century at least, and are continuing to use the fear propaganda of this bullshit "terrorism" to keep people in constant fear and wanting to continue to exchange their long and hard fought freedoms for the illusion of "security" from said "terrorists".... It has indeed been frustrating to myself in my efforts to break the brainwashing and to enlighten people to the reality that they are being played as suckers... Sadly few are listening...

Of course we still see the US working its magic in Syria for their long planned regime change under the disguise of being illegally in that nation for "fighting terrorists".... And the beat goes on with reports this last week where we see the US now threatening the Syrian government forces and their allies with "consequences" for when those forces finally launch their long planned attack on the last vestiges of US run "terrorists" now holed up in southwestern Syria..... I read the reports of how the US has threatened reprisals, and honestly I did not know whether to laugh or to cry... This should have awakened even the most ardent believers in this fraud "war on terror" that they have been had, and yet there has been little or no public outcry to this criminal threat by the US against the Syrian government that has every right to liberate THEIR OWN territory..... This also once again shows that the criminal US government's hypocrisy knows no boundaries and reaches new levels of idiocy......

One other issue in regards to the war for Syria's freedom has reared its ugly head again... For there are new reports coming out that the US led "terrorists" are about to launch one of their laughably ridiculous "chemical weapons" attacks once again in Syria that the Jew spew media will instantly and right on cue blame on the Assad government.... And of course the timing is crucial here, especially with so much of the world now focused in on the World Cup of Soccer taking place in Russia...... It is also the perfect timing now for another one of these frauds, due to the limited attention spans of most Americans, who have had their minds clouded by so much crap going on elsewhere that they will swallow one of these fraud "chemical weapons" attacks and have the blame be placed on Assad's government without any critical thinking and logic.....I can see this happening in fact over the next two weeks, as again the timing is too perfect.....

I saw this last week a most interesting article from Jim Stone over at his website at www.jimstone.is, where he put forward an article concerning the rapid rise of homosexuality in our society, and where the article that he enclosed came up with the notion that homosexuality is actually demonic possession... OK, I am not sold on this demon possession as the rationality behind being homo, for I see that as an abomination and actually a psychological problem of those individuals that practice that sickness.... I know that there will be those out there that will call me a "homophobe" for my stance, and I say tough shit to them.... Homosexuality is definitely an abomination and a sickness and is NOT normal, period...I have long said that these idiots that practice the filth of being a homo deserve to be kept in the closet and should have no place in our socieities at all..... And again about this concept of "demonic possession"; I read the article and again I am not sold on that, but I do find it intriguing.......

And someone asked me, being one heck of a Soccer fan, as to what I see happening in the World Cup in Russia so far.... I found the defeat of Germany at the hands of Mexico to be the biggest shocker so far, but honestly is it really that shocking?  The Mexican team's play has grown by leaps and bounds over the years and they are no slouches by any means.... It shows definitely that the world has "caught up" with so many of the elite powerhouses out of Europe and that NO team should be taken lightly.... And I was also intrigued to see little Iceland with a population of barely 340000 people give the Argentinian team that is loaded with so much talent a run for their money by tying them 1-1... Iceland has come a long way since they showed the world back in Euro finals last year that they are a team to be contended with, and it will be interesting to see if Iceland gets out of their group and into the "knock out rounds"..... And heck, I am not pissed off at my fellow Canadian truth seeker, Greencrow, when she stated last week that Soccer was boring.. Soccer generally IS boring as compared to other faster paced sports such as Basketball and even Australian Rules Football or American Football, but it is THE most watched and played sport on the planet..... I would therefore assume that the final in Moscow coming in July this year will be watched by billions, and with so many upsets it will be interesting to see which teams survive to get there!

OK, I figure I have rambled enough... I have a lot on my plate over the next while with home renovations and family issues to contend with, so I again must state that I will post material here if and when I get the chance... Meanwhile, here comes my last minute tidbits to close this rant...... I see the long awaited assault from the Ukrainian Army now armed to the teeth with the latest American made weaponry on the Donbas breakaway republics take place as early as this coming week.  It will indeed be a bloodbath and again I beg the question as to what the Russian response will be?..........New reports coming out about the dangers associated with the bullshit Gardisil "vaccines" which do more harm than good to anyone idiotic to take that poison into their bodies.  Once again, I must ask why anyone would ever take a vaccine at all considering their horrific risks and side effects?...........Canadian knuckleheaded Federal government got a black eye in regards to their fraud "Carbon Tax" fleecing of the Canadian people with the election of an anti Carbon Tax government in Ontario last week.  But here comes Justin Trudeau still trying to ram through that fraud in spite of the Canadian people now firmly against it.  It will be see how the Federal criminals try to impose this "tax" with more Canadians waking up to it being a massive swindle!.........I see that the German people are finally waking up to how their insane leader, Angela Merkel, is fucking their nation up with its insane "immigration policy" that has allowed millions of illegals into Germany to destroy their nation.  Basically Merkel has to go and Germany has to close their borders to these migrants, period.  And the sooner the better....... I see that Italy has closed their borders to more illegals flooding into their nation as well.  Good for Italy, and I hope the message is sent to the criminal Rothschild run European Union that European nations have had enough of this bullshit immigration and that they want to save their nations from destruction.  My idea is simple; send these migrants back to the hell holes they come from, period!.......I see that the fraud of "Bitcoin" is finally being revealed as that scam's actual value is falling like a stone and revelations are finally coming out about it being a fraud.  Thank goodness I never put any money into that scam, for I have not seen its purpose or its value at all from the beginning.....Yes, I have seen the reports coming out of the USA where that ultimate bitch and most evil, Hillary "Killary" Clinton could finally be indicted for her long list of crimes against humanity.  But to be honest, that witch will probably not see a single day in jail because of what she knows could bring down the entire rotten US government.  Yes the crooks that run the US will lie cheat and steal just to keep themselves out of jail.........Is it not amazing how Russia is almost totally debt free while the US is an estimated 30+ TRILLION dollars (a low estimate in my opinion..) in the hole?  I must be missing something here, or maybe this is one of the reasons why the Jew spew media is constantly bashing Russia, simply because Russia is showing the world how to be successful?......... News out of NASA that their Opportunity rover is official dead.  I will state that Spirit and Opportunity could have indeed been on Mars due to their logical method of landing without parachutes, but Curiosity?  Forget it, for that "probe" is no where near the red planet and is indeed a fraud.  Read my long list of articles at this blog on that phoney if you want to see why...........I see that the psychotic state of Israel is at it again, in trying to push for a war against Iran by claiming that Iran is going to "attack" Israel via Syria.  Considering the fact that Iran has no real combat troops in Syria at all, and that Iran does not directly connect to Syria to move forces into that nation for such an outrageous operation, I find these claims by the insane lunatics in Israel to be preposterous. But again, Israel is trying anything now to get their nice little war, where America will do all the fighting, against Iran off and running........OK, another week with little coming out of skank-ville, or as people call it "Kardashian world", other than news about Khloe's baby that is ridiculously named "True".  It has indeed been a bit quiet coming out of those media hounds recently, but I can guarantee something will come soon to once again draw American full attention away from real issues elsewhere.  Yes, America is still going to hell in a hand basket, but most Americans will give their undivided attention first and foremost to these idiots.  I am still trying to figure out why?

Happy Fathers Day To All Of My Readers

Yes, tomorrow is indeed Fathers Day.... And I do want to wish the best for all the hard working fathers out there....

I myself will be having a day of rest and relaxation as my family wants me to take the day to unwind and do NOTHING... They will be taking me out for breakfast and my better half and my son will be taking the cooking chores away from me for tomorrow night for a change (Yes, I do cook.. I have said it many times at this blog that is a passion of mine!).... It will be interesting to see what they come up with.....

My better half wants me to take a break from surfing the internet and writing at this blog and avoid or delay any writings at this blog for tomorrow only... I will oblige her this one time, and therefore tomorrow's rant will be delayed until most probably Monday....

I really do need some rest and taking tomorrow off will hopefully do some good for my body and mind...

I have a lot to discuss at this week's rant, so be patient... It will be out this Monday!

And as usual...

The Situation In Syria: The Criminals In The US Are Once Again Threatening Syria For Taking Action Against US Run Terrorists!

Why do I feel like I am beating my head against the wall every time I point out the FACTS that the entire "war on terror" is nothing but a massive fraud and swindle?  It was invented years ago for the US/Israel/NATO criminal cabal to have their excuses to march right into peaceful nations for their removal of popular governments through brutal "regime change".....

We have seen over and over again over these last few decades as the US has conveniently "invaded" many of the Middle Eastern nations on the premise that they are going in to "fight terrorism" when the reality is that they are of course trying to brutally overthrow governments.... Such is the case happening right now in Syria as the US is illegally operating in that nation and occupying a large swath of Syrian territory while still putting out the bullshit to the gullible and idiotic American dunces and sheep out there that they are "fighting terrorists".....

I want to once again put forward some important updates on the fighting in Syria as the Syrian people are still trying to get rid of the American invaders and their American proxies aka "terrorists"... And I came across the following very interesting report today via the Southfront website, at www.southfront.org, where apparently according to this article, as the good guys aka the Syrian Arabic Army (SAA) and their allied forces are ready to launch their massive strikes in southwestern Syria to finally free that entire area from the American/Israeli scourge right up to the Jordanian and Israeli illegally held territory of the Golan Heights, the US is now threatening Syria if it does launch this assault!   Here is the link to that report here:

https://southfront.org/once-again-u-s-warns-syrian-army-from-advancing-in-southern-syria/


OK... Does anyone else see the problem here?  Why in the hell is the US suddenly threatening Syria for its wanting to liberate Syrian territory and wipe out supposed "terrorists"?   Dos this not seem a bit odd to even the most ignorant people out there that still cling to the stupid notion that the US is "fighting terrorists"?

Well... At least my fellow Canadian real truth seeker Penny, over at her website: Penny For Your Thoughts at www.pennyforyourthoughts2.blogspot.com is not pulling any punches in terms of the arrogance of the American criminal government when it states that it will take action against any Syrian attacks on "terrorists".... Here is the link to her latest article that covers this interesting development here:

http://pennyforyourthoughts2.blogspot.com/2018/06/us-to-take-firm-appropriate-measures.html


I agree with Penny that the US has got a lot of nerve in trying to stop Syrians from liberating their own nation.... This also once again shows everyone the reality that the US is NOT in Syria for "fighting terrorism" as the gullible American sheep are still believing but are definitely hell bent on having their long sought "regime change" instead....

And here is a big question of course... Why type of "firm action" will the US take when the Syrians go all out to destroy these last remaining "terrorists" in southwestern Syria?   Will the gloves come off and the world to finally see what type of evil liars and hypocrites the US truly is and expose to everyone the truth that they are still hell bent on destroying Syria?   We may not have long to wait, for apparently the Syrians have already begun operations in the region by shelling "militant" positions in preparation for a major offensive... Here is the link to that report here:

https://southfront.org/following-u-s-threats-syrian-army-shells-militants-in-southwestern-syria/

Well, there you have it... The Syrian government forces and their allies are doing exactly what they should be doing.. Trying to liberate their own nation!    And I do wonder what the US "response" will be to this action.... Could we be about to see a brand new "chemical weapons" false flag to be once again blamed on Assad to try to stop this destruction of American run "terrorists"?

Apparently, the notion that the US will once again use a false flag "chemical weapons" attack in Syria  to try to save their "terrorists" has not been overlooked by both the Syrian government as well as their Russian allies.... And according to the link to the following report from Southfront website, that is exactly what the Russians are predicting the US will do as they are stating that these  "chemical weapons" provocations always follow the same pattern put out by the criminals in the US government... Here is that link here for all to see:

https://southfront.org/russia-all-chemical-provocations-in-syria-follow-same-scenario/


OK, There you have it... I can see over the next few days the US once again using their fraud "White Helmets" or other "terrorists" and launch another of those phoney baloney "chemical weapons" attacks somewhere in Syria to be once again blamed on Assad by the compliant Jew spew media... The question becomes... Will the dumb ass sheep in America be just as gullible as they have in the last few years with the other fraud chemical weapons attacks?  Honestly, considering the low attention spans of the average American coupled with a very low IQ to boot, I can see this attempt happening sooner than later...

Important Video: Dangerous People Are Teaching Your Kids

In my daily interaction with people, I have noticed how so many have fallen victim to the bullshit "Liberalism" and other ideas that have stifled their abilities to either speak their own minds or to stand up for what is truly right... I for one have been sick and tired of this modern idea of "Gender politics" and giving rights to those that in previous years would have been kept on the fringes of society.... I find it appalling that we see so many now identify by their gender or race rather than their abilities, especially in the working environment....It is also sickening to see how free speech is now being serious curtailed in this nation as everyone is now fearful that anything that they say or do can be misinterpreted as being "offensive" to some liberal minded bullshit group..... That is why I have been using this blog at times as an outlet to say "Fuck that" and to speak my own mind...

I came across the following wonderful video that is narrated by a gentleman named Jordan Peterson that I want to share with my own readers... This one is entitled: "Dangerous People Are Teaching Your Kids" and I must say is a must see by everyone... I have it right here in its entirety and of course my own thoughts and comments to follow:



NTS Notes:  I will lay it out clearly.... This fall in our society is absolutely laid out in the criminal Jewish blueprint for their long planned world domination, their insidious "Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion".... I again ask that many people take the time to take a look at the Protocols and you will see this as fact and an absolute eye opener....

I would say that the goal of these monsters is to stifle free speech and to screw everyone up so badly that our entire western based society is in total disarray and ripe for destruction....

I have been able to count myself lucky in that my own son is a very logical person that has not fallen prey to this fraud of "liberalism".... He speaks his mind and he too has found that his peers around him have fallen prey to this bullshit... To him, he basically calls them "nuts" and does not spend any time with them unless by necessity...

I will also state that this destruction of our society can be stopped... But only if enough people finally stand up for what is really right and to say to everyone and especially those fringe elements of stupidity that "enough is enough"..... And it must be stopped for the goal is of course the enslavement of our society and loss of real freedoms...

Share this video with everyone if you can... For according to the comments in this Youtube video, the criminals involved are trying to remove Jordan Peterson's and other's works from the internet...

*Please note.. There are many naysayers that do not like Jordan Peterson, and I too look at him as being suspect... But this video touches on many key issues that are affecting our youth today, and those who know the truth know that the Jewish pricks are the ones driving this agenda....

I have no qualms with putting up some work by those who may be deemed suspect in their writings, for at times even these liars have to put out some truth.....  And that truth is what we should focus on, instead of the messengers...

The Forgotten War Against Yemen: US Grants Approval For Genocide

I have made it a point in every weekend "rant" to mention what is happening in the besieged nation of Yemen... That nation has been fighting a horrendous war against the criminal nation of Saudi Arabia, along with a few of Saudi Arabia's Arabic "allies",  for the last two years now at least.. And as a result, there have been hundreds of thousands of innocent Yemen civilians murdered or starved to death....

I have also stated for the last two years now that the criminal US government has been giving support, both financially as well as militarily, to the Saudi criminal murderers and their allies to continue their pursuit of the conquering of Yemen, which to me is an abomination and something that the American public must be made aware of... BUT to this day, there has been little to no reporting at all coming out of the liars in the Jew spew media concerning the real truths about the war in Yemen...THAT is why I have called the war in Yemen the "forgotten war".....

Over the last two weeks, I have been watching reports via the alternative media about the Saudi armed forces along with their allied armies assault along the Red Sea coast in Yemen as they push both north and south along the coast to seize the last open port in Yemen through which any humanitarian aid has been flowing to prevent the mass starvation of Yemen's civilian population, the city of Al Hudaydah..... If that city falls, then there will be no more international aid coming into Yemen and the mass slaughter of Yemen's civilian population via starvation will begin in earnest....

I just came across the following report that comes from the Moon Of Alabama website, at www.moonofalabama.org, that I do want to share with my readers here... This one is entitled: "Yemen - US Grants Approval For Genocide" and as the title states, the US is indeed aiding the Saudis and its allies in this final assault on the Red Sea port of Al Hudaydah which will see the genocide of Yemen's civilians become a reality through mass starvation... Here is that article, and I have my own thoughts and comments to follow:

Yemen - U.S. Grants Approval For Genocide

The genocide in Yemen is going to start tomorrow. Eight million are already on the brink of starvation. Eighteen out of twenty-six million Yemenis live in the mountainous heartlands (green) which are under control of the Houthi and their allies. They are surrounded by Saudi and U.A.E. forces and their mercenaries. There is little agriculture. The only supply line from the outside world will soon be cut off. The people will starve.

bigger
Even before the war Yemen imported 90% of its staple food. Three years of Saudi/UAE bombing have destroyed local infrastructure and production. The ongoing war has already caused mass starvation and the outbreak of a large cholera epidemic. The Yemeni coast is under blockade by Saudi and U.S. naval forces. The only supplies coming in are UN and commercial deliveries through the Red Sea Hodeidah port (Al Hudaydah on the map).

bigger
The United Arab Emirates is leading local mercenaries and Islamist gangs against the Houthi and their allies. During the last months these forces moved from the south along the coast up to Hodeidah. The fighting is fierce:
Heavy fighting in Yemen between pro-government forces and Shiite rebels has killed more than 600 people on both sides in recent days, security officials said Monday.
Tomorrow, when the media will be busy with the Kim-Trump photo-op summit, the UAE forces will launch their attack on the city.
The UN, which oversees the aid distribution through Hodeidah, tried to negotiate between the parties:
The U.N. special envoy for Yemen, Martin Griffiths, traveled to the U.A.E. capital over the weekend in an effort to forestall an attack. Mr. Griffiths had secured an agreement with Houthi rebels who control Hodeidah to allow the U.N. to operate the port jointly, the people said. But people briefed on the discussions said they doubted the U.A.E. would accept the offer or delay the planned assault.
The briefed people were right. The UN is now evacuating its staff:
The United Nations was withdrawing its staff on Monday from the besieged Yemeni port city of Al Hudaydah, after member countries were told that an attack by forces led by the United Arab Emirates was imminent, according to two diplomats briefed on the matter.
...
The International Committee for the Red Cross removed its staff from the city over the weekend.
...
Diplomats in the region say they believe that only more pressure from Washington will stop the planned assault.
The U.S., through its Secretary of State Pompeo, just gave a green light to the UAE to launch its attack:
The United States is closely following developments in Hudaydah, Yemen. I have spoken with Emirati leaders and made clear our desire to address their security concerns while preserving the free flow of humanitarian aid and life-saving commercial imports. We expect all parties to honor their commitments to work with the UN Office of the Special Envoy of the Secretary General for Yemen on this issue, support a political process to resolve this conflict, ensure humanitarian access to the Yemeni people, and map a stable political future for Yemen.
Neither the Emirates nor the Saudis have any interest in letting humanitarian aid flow. They are absolutely ruthless. Earlier today they bombed a Cholera treatment center run by Doctors Without Borders:
MSF Yemen @msf_yemen - 10:29 UTC - 11 Jun 2018
"This morning´s attack on an @MSF cholera treatment centre in Abs by the Saudi and Emirati-led coalition shows complete disrespect for medical facilities and patients. Whether intentional or a result of negligence, it is totally unacceptable."
Last week the Saudis intentionally bombed facilities of the Norwegian Refugee Council in Sanaa:
NRC has provided all relevant parties to the conflict, including the Saudi-led Coalition, with details and coordinates on our operations in order to ensure the safety of our staff.
Hodeidah, with 600,000 regular inhabitants and hundred thousands of refugees, will be difficult to conquer. No supplies will flow through the port while the fight is ongoing. Should the UAE forces be able to take the port they are unlikely to allow aid to pass towards the Houthi controlled areas. There will be a huge famine, hundred thousands if not millions will die.
It would be easy for the Trump administration to stop the UAE attack. U.S. special forces are on the ground in Yemen working closely with UAE forces. U.S. planes are refueling the Saudi and UAE bombers. U.S. intelligence is used in the targeting process. The U.S. supplies the bombs. Without U.S. air-to-air refueling there would be no air-support for the UAE fighters on the ground. They would be unable to launch their attack.
From its very beginning the Trump administration has been extremely close (long read) with the Israeli, Emirati and Saudi rulers. Their common aim is to counter Iran. But Iran is hardly involved in Yemen:
Claims of Iran’s influence over the Houthis have been overblown. While the Houthis do receive some support from Iran, it is mostly political, with minimal financial and military assistance. However, since the Houthis took control of Sanaa, the group has increasingly been portrayed as “Iran-backed” or “Shia,” often suggesting a sectarian relationship with the Islamic Republic. Yet until after the 2011 upheavals, the term “Shia” was not used in the Yemeni public to refer to any Yemeni groups or individuals. The Houthis do not follow the Twelver Shia tradition predominant in Iran, but adhere to the Zaidiya, which in practice is closer to Sunni Islam, and had expressed no solidarity with other Shia communities.
The Saudis see the Zaidiya as an impediment of their influence in Yemen. They want to control the Yemeni government. The Emirates want to control the port of Aden and Yemen's the oil and gas loading facilities. The Obama administration supported the Saudi onslaught on Yemen to buy Saudi acquiescence with the nuclear deal with Iran. The Trump administration supports the Saudi/UAE war out of lack of knowledge. It has fallen for the Iran myth. It also wants to sell more weapons.

Millions of kids and grown ups will have to pay for this with their lives.

NTS Notes:  This is nothing more that a massive travesty that once again shows the true criminality of the US government in their want to aid the criminal government of Saudi Arabia, along with Saudi Arabia's allies, in this act of pure genocide...

And where are the American people in all this?  Again, I must point out that very few Americans are even aware of what is really happening in Yemen due to the massive Jew spew media 'blackout' that  keeps the vast majority in the dark.... THAT to me is also a horrible travesty.....

I do hope that this is a wake up call for everyone... People must be made aware of the real situation in Yemen, for if we all stand by and do nothing then millions of innocent people will indeed perish..

The Continuing War In Syria: War Of Annihilation - Amnesty International Investigation Into "Siege" Of Raqqa Reveals US And Allies Committed War Crimes!

When the US began their "siege" last year on the northern Syrian city of Raqqa, I smelled a rat... The US and its NATO allies were the criminals behind the fraud "terrorist" group known as ISIS, and here we had the reports via the Jew spew media that the US and its allies were "attacking" the fraud of ISIS in the city of Raqqa..... Basically we had US forces "attacking" other US forces!   And with the reports last year that the fraud of "ISIS" was allowed to evacuate Raqqa long before the US attacked and moved to the vicinity of the eastern city of Deir Ez-Zor, I indeed saw nothing but a pure propaganda exercise.....Therefore the entire "siege of Raqqa" was as phoney as the US's siege of Mosul in northern Iraq from the previous year and what we were indeed watching was another bullshit exercise to sell to the American people and the world that the US was in Syria to "fight terrorism"....

Yes, the US and its NATO partners in crime did indeed launch a massive assault on Raqqa, and basically with ISIS no longer in the vicinity, they were attacking civilian militias and Syrian civilians still holed up in the city.... What happened over the next 6 months of last year during this phoney American "siege", before the city was officially declared as "liberated" was nothing more than a massive travesty where innocent civilians were slaughtered by the thousands!  This dear readers is fact...

And to prove that the entire "siege of Raqqa" was indeed an assault on civilians and a massive genocide, I want to turn to the following report that comes courtesy of the Southfront website, at www.southfront.org, where apparently a new Amnesty International investigation and report has come forward that the US and its 'allies" did indeed commit horrific war crimes during their unnecessary attack on the city of Raqqa last year!  Here is that Southfront report for everyone to see and read for themselves, and I have my usual thoughts and comments to follow:


WAR OF ANNIHILATION: AMNESTY’S INVESTIGATION INTO THE SIEGE OF RAQQA REVEALS US, UK AND FRANCE COMMITTED WAR CRIMES


War of Annihilation: Amnesty’s Investigation into the Siege of Raqqa reveals US, UK and France committed War Crimes

Written by Dr.Leon Tressell, co-authorted by Rosa Tressell exclusively for SouthFront
“If you stayed you died and if you tried to escape you died  … [I escaped by] walking over the blood of those who were blown up as they tried to flee ahead of us’’.
Munira Hashish, air strike and mines survivor – Source: Amnesty International Report
“We are the good guys and the innocent people on the battlefield know the difference.”
James Mattis, US Defence Secretary – Source: Amnesty International Report
During 2017 the Isis Caliphate was finally overthrown in Syria and Iraq. Its capital in Raqqa, Syria was captured by Kurdish led SDF forces strongly supported by massive air and artillery strikes provided by America and its French/British allies. During the siege of Raqqa (July-October 2017), while SDF troops slowly captured district after district from Isis forces, the international community ignored warnings from Amnesty International and other human rights groups about the large number of civilian casualties being caused by the massive and indiscriminate air and artillery strikes by Coalition forces.
It was only after the city was fully recaptured by SDF troops in mid October 2017 that the full horror of the American led war of annihilation came to light. This article will draw very heavily from the research provided by Amnesty investigators who went to Raqqa and interviewed hundreds of survivors. Their investigation has produced a very harrowing report entitled – “War of Annihilation – Devastating Toll On Civilians, Raqqa – Syria
The war of annihilation waged by America and its allies is best described by the civilians who survived this horrific war crime. The amount of bombs and artillery shells fired into Raqqa by the U.S. led coalition is highly reminiscent of the extermination campaigns waged by American imperialism during its war in Vietnam.
The experiences of the Badran family illustrate the living hell that civilians in Raqqa had to endure while the American led coalition pulverised the city with heavy artillery and air strikes.
The SDF campaign to capture the city began in June 2017. The experiences of the Badran family illustrate the living hell that civilians in Raqqa had to endure while the American led coalition pulverised the city with heavy artillery and air strikes.
On 18 July the Badran family made their first escape attempt from the city. They used two cars to make their way out of the living hell that was Raqqa. One of the cars was hit by an American air strike killing four family members. A surviving family member told Amnesty:
“Shortly afterwards, a few streets away we saw the car which had taken the women and children slightly earlier on. It had been struck by an air strike I think, and it was burning. The men inside the car were killed. Initially I only saw two bodies, at the front, and then the other two, at the back’’.
Those killed trying to escape in one of the cars were:
“1. Mustafa Mohammed Badran (aka Steif), 14 (Shamsa’s son)
2. Khaled Ismail Said, 17
3. Mohamed Hussein Shamari (Khood’s son), 24
4. Hassan Dandoush Ibn Hsein (son of Zarifa Sahu)’’.
Five members still waiting for the cars to come back and pick them up were then killed by another air strike that completely obliterated the house. One of the female family members told Amnesty investigators:
“We buried them. There wasn’t one body left intact. We took them out in pieces. We put the piece into plastic bags and we buried them’’.
Those killed in the American air strike on the Badran family home were:
“1. Mohamed Ahmed Badran Ibn Mohammed, 40 (Shamsa’s husband)
2. Daham Badran Ibn Ahmed, 50 (Shamsa’s husband’s brother)
3. Ismael Said, 55 (Sadeeqa’s husband)
4. Ibrahim Said Ibn Ismael, 15 (Sadeeqa’s son)
5. Khaled Badran Ibn Ibrahim, 52
6. An unidentified man
7. An unidentified man’’
The surviving members of the Badran family returned to their neighbourhood and stayed with a neighbour while several members received treatment from a hospital nearby. By mid August they were forced to flee to the Harat Al-Sakhani neighbourhood in the Old City in search of a doctor. The Badran family hooked up with several other families with a view to escaping Raqqa. On 18 August they started their escape but didn’t get far as they encountered several Isis members who fired upon their group of 65 killing two people. The group was forced to return to Harat Al-Sakhani.
Retreating back to the Old City further tragedy struck. Rasha, a member of the Badran family describes what happened next:
“So we went back to al-Sakhani. We had no other options. Two days later [on 20 August] we were bombed, both houses where we were staying got bombed. Almost everybody was killed. Only I, my husband and his brother and cousin survived. The strike happened at about 7pm. I fainted and when I regained consciousness I heard my husband’s cousin, Mohammed, calling out. I could neither move nor speak. Then my husband and his brother found me. My husband was the most seriously injured – he had a head wound and blood was pouring from his ears. It was dark and we could not see anything. We called out but nobody else answered; nobody moved. It was completely silent except for the planes circling above.
We hid in the rubble until the morning because the planes were circling overhead. In the morning we found Tulip’s body; our baby was dead. We buried her near there, by a tree.
Both houses were pulverised; nothing was left standing, there was only rubble. These were simple Arab houses, they were not sturdy. I don’t understand why they bombed us. Didn’t the surveillance planes see that we were civilian families?’’
Badran family members killed in the main house at Harat al-Sakhani by American and British air strikes were:
“Six siblings – six sisters and one brother (Ali):
  1. Thuraya Daham bint Mustafa, in her 60s
  2. Summaia Daham bint Mustafa, 55 (widowed, without children)
  3. Abta bint Mustafa Dahab, in her 50s
  4. Ali Badran Ibn Mustafa, 50
  5. Khood Daham bint Mustafa, 48
  6. Shamsa Daham bint Mustafa, 40 (Shamsa’s husband was killed at Nazlet al-Shehada)
  7. Sadeeqa Daham bint Mustafa, 38 (Sadeeqa’s husband was killed at Nazlet al-Shehada) Thuraya’s son and his family:
  8. Ibrahim Daham Ibn Khaleel, late 20s/early 30s
  9. Madonna Daham, mid 20s (Ibrahim’s wife – originally from Damascus)
  10. Madonna’s son, five
  11. Madonna’s other son, three
  12. Madonna’s daughter, nine months Abta’s children:
  13. Qaisal Sahoo Ibn Mohammed, 20 (Abta’s son)
  14. Mais Sahoo bint Mohammed, 19 (Abta’s daughter) Khood’s daughter:
  15. Rana Shamari bint Hussein, 18 (Khood’s daughter) Shamsa’s children:
  16. Sahar Badran bint Mohammed, 18
  17. Saja Badran bint Mohammed, 16
  18. Ahmed Badran Ibn Mohammed, 10
  19. Hamsa Badran Ibn Mohammed, nine
  20. Daham Badran Ibn Mohammed, four (As well as her husband, Shamsa’s sixth child, Mustafa, was killed previously at Nazlet al-Shehade) Sadeeqa’a children:
  21. Sidra Said bint Ismael, 12
  22. Munthir Said Ibn Ismael, 11
  23. Aseel Said Ibn Ismael, six
  24. Khatooneh Wahab, 75 Four others who were not from the Badran family also were killed:
  25. Abu Riad, 60s
  26. Souad, 50s (Abu Riad’s wife – originally from Iraq)
  27. Maha, mid 20s (daughter of Abu Riad and Souad)
  28. Ammina Raqim, 60s (Abu Riad’s sister)’’.
Only Rasha, her husband and two other family members survived the Coalition air strike. They were forced to try and find shelter elsewhere. Her two cousins went to find shelter with a neighbour only to be killed by a drone strike upon the house. The 3 floored building was destroyed yet Rasha and her husband were able to hide in the basement for 3 days until they were discovered by an Isis patrol.
They were driven towards the stadium and Harat al-Badu by the Isis patrol to be used as human shields against Coalition air strikes. On 17 September, Rasha her husband and 22 others used the cover of morning prayers to mask the noise of their steps to escape by crossing the SDF front lines. After weeks of hiding and terror, never knowing from one moment to the next if they were going to be killed by a coalition air or artillery strike, Pasha and her husband had reached safety. They had lost their baby Tulip and 38 members of their family.
The story of the Badran family was all too common during the SDF conquest of Raqqa that began in early June 2017 and was supported by an unprecedentedly heavy bombardment by American, British and French forces.
On 14 October the Coalition issued a statement about the SDF truce with ISIS:
“We do not condone any arrangement that allows Daesh terrorists to escape Raqqah without facing justice, only to resurface somewhere else…’’.
Yet on 15 October 2017 the remaining Isis forces in Raqqa, numbering several hundred, were allowed by the SDF and their American sponsors to leave the city in safety with large quantities of weapons and with complete impunity for their many crimes. Local residents have told Amnesty investigators that Isis fighters were allowed to evacuate before civilians. Jaira, a mother of two trapped in Harat Al-Badu told Amnesty:
“When we heard that there was a truce and we would be allowed to leave Raqqa, we thought this was for us, the civilians, but then when the buses came we realised they were for Daesh. We had to make our own way out of the city. I couldn’t believe it, but we were happy to get out by whatever means.”
The so called International Coalition that helped the SDF destroy Raqqa and kill thousands of civilians was largely an American affair supported by France and the UK. The U.S. had over 2,000 troops supporting the SDF siege of Raqqa while the UK and France had small numbers of special forces close to the front lines.
The American contingent comprised: the Army High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems firing very powerful 237 mm rockets and hundreds of marines who provided artillery support with M777 howitzers firing 155 mm shells into Raqqa. The American artillery fired tens of thousands of rockets and shells into Raqqa. Meanwhile, the US, and its French and British allies pounded Raqqa with over 4,000 air strikes.
Incredibly, over 100,000 people have returned to the ruins of Raqqa despite the large number of unexploded bombs/IED’s and the stench of dead bodies buried below the rubble. Since its recapture the surviving residents of Raqqa have faced the prospect of trying to rebuild their shattered lives with very little aid from those who were responsible for the city’s destruction. Unexploded American bombs and Isis IED’s litter the city with no prospect in sight of any help with this grave threat to residents lives. Everyday people are killed and injured as they try to clear up the rubble of their destroyed homes, bury dead bodies and go about their daily business.
Matters have been compounded by widespread looting throughout the city. Residents have complained to Amnesty that SDF soldiers have been complicit in many acts of looting while providing no security on the streets at night time allowing criminal elements to steal with impunity.
In April of this year the United Nations refugee agency entered Raqqa with much needed relief aid. They were horrified by what they found, “the UN team entering Raqqa city were shocked by the level of destruction, which exceeded anything they had ever seen before”.
After destroying Raqqa , America and its allies in the coalition of the killing refuse to acknowledge any responsibility for helping rebuild the city or to provide any kind of humanitarian assistance. In April Jerry Guilbert from the U.S. State Department responded to a journalists question by declaring rather smugly:
“… we never went into this from the beginning with the view that the international community was going to clear Raqqa or clear Syria. Ultimately, this has to be viewed as a Syrian problem that is in need of a Syrian solution”.
The Raqqa Civil Council (RCC) that has been set up by the Kurdish led SDF to govern Raqqa has acknowledged that America and its allies have provided no assistance to the destroyed city. Laila Mustafa of the RCC told Amnesty:
“Residents come to us every day asking us to recover the bodies of their relatives trapped in the rubble of destroyed buildings but we only have very few bulldozers and mostly not of the right kind, so we cannot satisfy most of these requests. We need equipment for lifting large quantity of heavy rubble full of mines and we just don’t have it’’.
It has often been said that history is written by the victors and this was never more true than in the Coalition war of annihilation waged in Raqqa against Isis. On 17 September U.S. commander Lieutenant General Stephen Townsend proudly declared:
“ … there has never been a more precise air campaign in the history of armed conflict”.
Meanwhile, other partners to these stupendous war crime have denied all culpability for the consequences of their disproportionate and indiscriminate actions in Raqqa. On 8 January 2018 the UK government blithely stated:
“In carrying out air strikes, expert analysts routinely examine data from every UK strike to assess its effect… We co-operate fully with NGOs such as Airwars, who provide evidence they gather of civilian casualties. After detailed work on each case, we have been able to discount RAF involvement in any civilian casualties as a result of any of the strikes that have been brought to our attention’’.
The 70 page report produced by Amnesty into the destruction of Raqqa by America and its allies makes it very clear that their claim to have carried out precision strikes that caused very few civilian casualties is a down right pack of lies. The coalition of the killing carried out massively disproportionate and indiscriminate air and artillery strikes whose objective was nothing less than the total destruction of a city that had hundreds of thousands of civilian residents.
The people of Raqqa have undergone a shattering experience and suffered such terrible trauma. There is no recognition of this by the western media or the politicians who carry on with their everyday business oblivious to the crimes against humanity committed under the cover of the “War On Terror’’.
The deafening silence of the political classes over the annihilation of Raqqa stands in sharp contrast to the hysteria that accompanied the liberation of Aleppo by the Syrian and Russian forces in early 2017. Media headlines incessantly screamed that Russia and Assad’s forces were using barrel bombs and indiscriminate air attacks to destroy the city and defeat the so-called ‘’moderate terrorists’’. More recently, we have seen the hypocritical outrage over the alleged use of chemical weapons by Syrian forces while the American use of white phosphorous in Raqqa is completely ignored.
The destruction of Raqqa and the war of annihilation waged by America and its blood stained allies will stand in the halls of infamy as a terrible crime whose immorality would make the devil himself proud of this achievement.

NTS Notes: WHY am I not in the least bit surprised by this report?  What happened in Raqqa was indeed nothing more than pure murder by the Americans as part of some type of twisted deal that they made with the Kurds to remove Syrians from the city (murder them) as part of the war crime of "ethnic cleansing"....

Yes, the US committed horrific war crimes against civilians in this phoney "siege"... And of course with their incessant bombing of the city, most of what remains of Raqqa today is left uninhabitable.... It is a miracle that any civilians survived this atrocity at all...

I will state one thing that everyone must be made to understand.. The aim of this entire "siege" was to absolutely annihilate the civilian population to clear the city of Syrian civilians so as to turn the entire city over to the Kurdish forces.... It was indeed nothing more than pure murder and genocide, and the charges of war crimes against the US forces are absolutely valid....

I hope that my American readers get a 'reality check' with this report... Your criminal government is absolutely wanting to see Syria both dismembered and destroyed... And to achieve that aim, they do not care how many innocent civilians die as a result... What happened in Raqqa is a testament to that!

More to come
