But first, imagine it is 1963 and you walk outside to see your
neighbor, Martin, leaving hastily on his way to do something. The speed of his leaving makes even the
man across the street curious enough to ask.
"Martin, where are you running off to again?"
Dr. King turns to the man as his key unlocks the car door, and says, "Friend, look around you, can't you
see the work that needs to be done?...and if so, how about coming along with me?"
"Ah, there you go again Martin," replies the man, "you worry too much about politics and the
like. Things are going to workout...I mean, don't you watch television?...they say it all the time. Anyway, you are too radical
for me...reading, truth searching, voting...let somebody else do all that work for rights and
freedoms. Besides, doesn't your Bible teach that we are in the "end times," and things are
like this because it's the way it's suppose to be?...You know, prophecy and all that."
Suddenly the phone rings indoors, for the man who had been speaking, and he announces. "Oh well, excuse me
Rev, some of us have a life...later my brothers." And he trots off as Dr. King happens to look your way.
"Excuse me friend, I notice you standing there...no doubt you heard the conversation? Listen,"
he opens the car door, "I am on my way to talk to a few folks gathered at the Lincoln
Memorial...would you like to join us?" Click here to be
inspired, and to see how things turned out.
What would your response have been to M.L.K Jr? What
if Dr. King listened to types like the man across the street? Has some convenient distraction, carried you away
from getting involved in the fate of your society? For the clarion call continues today, arguably in a time
where the situation is much worse than it was even then. If you are not convinced that it is, I would strongly
suggest that you do your best efforts to, "Look Into It."

The Bases Are Loaded: US Permanent Military Presence in
Published on Jun 20, 2007
Will the U.S. ever leave Iraq? Official policy promises an eventual departure,
while warning of the dire consequences of a "premature" withdrawal. But while Washington
equivocates, facts on the ground tell another story. Independent journalist Dahr Jamail, and
author Chalmers Johnson, are discovering that military bases in Iraq are being consolidated
from over a hundred to a handful of "megabases" with lavish amenities. Much of what is taking
place is obscured by denials and quibbles over the definition of "permanent." The Bases Are
Loaded covers a wide range of topics. Gary Hart, James Goldsborough, Nadia Keilani, Raed
Jarrar, Bruce Finley Kam Zarrabi and Mark Rudd all add their observations about the extent and
purpose of the bases in Iraq.
How often do we hear the claim that American troops “defend our
freedoms”? The claim is made often by U.S. officials and is echoed far and wide across the land by television
commentators, newspaper columnists, public-school teachers, and many others. It's even a common assertion that
emanates on Sundays from many church pulpits.
Unfortunately, it just isn't so. In fact, the
situation is the exact opposite — the troops serve as the primary instrument by which both our freedoms and
well-being are threatened.
Let's examine the three potential threats to our
freedoms and the role that the troops play in them:
Every competent military analyst would tell us
that the threat of a foreign invasion and conquest of America is nonexistent. No nation has the military
capability of invading and conquering the United States. Not China, not Russia, not Iran, not North Korea, not
Syria. Not anyone. To invade the United States with sufficient forces to conquer and “pacify” the entire nation
would take millions of foreign troops and tens of thousands of ships and planes to transport them across the
Atlantic or Pacific ocean. No foreign nation has such resources or military capabilities and no nation will
have them for the foreseeable future.
After all, think about it: the U.S. army, the most
powerful military force in all of history, has not been able to fully conquer such a small country as Iraq
because of the level of domestic resistance to a foreign invasion. Imagine the level of military forces that
would be needed to conquer and “pacify” a country as large and well-armed as the United
I repeat: No foreign nation has the military
capability to invade the United States, conquer our country, subjugate our people, and take away our freedoms.
Therefore, the troops are not needed to protect our freedoms from this nonexistent threat.
Despite widespread fears to the contrary, there is
no possibility that terrorists will conquer the United States, take over the government, and take away our
freedoms. At most, they are able to kill thousands of people, with, say, suicide bombs but they lack the
military forces to subjugate the entire nation or any part of it.
Equally important, while the troops claim
that they are protecting us from “the terrorists,” it is the troops themselves — or, more precisely, the
presidential orders they have loyally carried out — that have engendered the very terrorist threats against
which the troops say they are now needed to protect us.
Think back to 1989 and the years following — when
the Berlin Wall fell, East and West Germany were united, Soviet troops withdrew from Eastern Europe, and the
Soviet Union was dismantled. The Pentagon didn't know what to do. Unexpectedly, its 50-year-old “official
enemy” was gone. (The Soviet Union had previously been America's “ally” that had “liberated” Eastern Europe
from Nazi Germany.) With the fall of the Soviet empire (and, actually, before the fall), the obvious question
arose: Why should the United States continue to have an enormous standing army and spend billions of dollars in
taxpayer money to keep it in existence?
The Pentagon was in desperate search for a new
mission. “We can be a big help in the war on drugs,” the Pentagon said. To prove it, U.S. military forces
evenshot to death 18-year-old American citizen Esequiel Hernandez in 1997, as he tended his goats
along the U.S.-Mexican border. “We'll help American businesses compete in the world.” “We'll readjust NATO's
mission to protect Europe from non-Soviet threats.” “We'll protect us from an unsafe
Then along came the Pentagon's old ally, Saddam
Hussein, to whom the United States had evenentrusted weapons of mass destruction to use against the Iranian people, and gave America's standing army a new raison
d'être. Invading Kuwait over an oil-drilling dispute, Saddam provided the Pentagon with a new official
enemy, one that would last for more than 10 continuous years.
Obeying presidential orders to attack Iraq
in 1991, without the constitutionally required congressional declaration of war, the troops ended up killing
tens of thousands of Iraqis. Obeying Pentagon orders to attack Iraq's water and sewage facilities, the troops
accomplished exactly whatPentagon planners had
anticipated — spreading deadly infections and
disease among the Iraqi people. Continuing to obey presidential orders in the years that followed, the
troops enforced what was possibly the mostbrutal embargo in
history, which ended up contributing to the
deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children, deaths that U.S. officials said were
“worth it.” Obeying presidential orders, the troops enforced
theillegal “no-fly zones” over Iraq, which killed even more Iraqis,including children. Obeying presidential orders, the troops established themselves on Islamic holy
lands with full knowledge of the anger and resentment that that would produce among devout Muslims. Obeying
presidential orders, the troops invaded and occupied Iraq without the constitutionally required
congressional declaration of war, killing and maiming tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis — that is, people
whose worst “crime” was to resist the unlawful invasion of their homeland by a foreign
All that death and destruction — both pre-9/11 and
post-9/11 — have given rise to terrible anger and hatred against the United States, which inspired the pre-9/11
attacks, such as the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center, the attack on the
the attacks on overseas U.S. embassies, the 9/11 attacks, and the terrorist threats our nation faces
Through it all, the Pentagon simply echoed the
claims of the president — that all the death and destruction and humiliation that the U.S. government had
wreaked on people in the Middle East, as well as its unconditional military and financial foreign aid to the
Israeli government, had not engendered any adverse feelings in the Middle East against the United States.
Instead, the president and the Pentagon claimed, the problem was that the terrorists simply hated America for
its “freedom and values.”
If the American people had dismantled the
nation's standing army when the Soviet empire was dismantled, the federal government would have lacked the
military means to meddle and intervene in the Middle East with unconstitutional military operations, sanctions,
no-fly zones, bases, invasions, and occupations. Therefore, there never would have been the terrorists attacks
against the United States and a “war on terrorism” for the troops to fight, not to mention the USA PATRIOT Act, secret search warrants and secret courts,
thePadilla doctrine, and other federal infringements on our rights and
Finally, but certainly important, despite being
the most powerful standing army in the world, the U.S. troops were not even able to protect Americans from
terrorist acts, as best evidenced by two terrorist attacks on the same target — the World Trade Center, first
in 1993 and then again in 2001.

WAR IS A RACKET
(Article Continued: The Troops Don't Defend Our Freedoms)
3. The federal
As our Founding Fathers understood so well, the
primary threat to our freedom lies with our own government. That's in fact why we have the Constitution and the
Bill of Rights — to protect us and our freedoms from federal officials. If the federal government did not
constitute such an enormous threat to our freedoms, there would be no reason to have the Constitution and the
Bill of Rights.
Yet, what is the primary means by which a
government takes away the freedoms of its citizenry? Our American ancestors gave us the answer: its military
forces. That is in fact why many of our Founding Fathers opposed a standing, professional military force in
America — they knew not only that such a force would be used to involve the nation in costly, senseless, and
destructive wars abroad but also that government officials would inevitably use the troops to ensure a
compliant and obedient citizenry at home.
Consider the words of James
A standing military force, with an overgrown
Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defense against foreign danger have
been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a
war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of
defending, have enslaved the people.
Here's how Patrick Henry put it:
A standing army we shall have, also, to execute
the execrable commands of tyranny; and how are you to punish them? Will you order them to be punished?
Who shall obey these orders? Will your mace-bearer be a match for a disciplined
Would U.S. troops obey presidential orders to
deploy against the American people and take away our freedoms?
There is no doubt about it. Of course they would,
especially if the president told them that our “freedom and national security” depended on it, which he
As I suggested in my article,
“The Troops Don't Support the
Constitution,” in the United States the loyalty of
the troops is to the president as their supreme commander of chief, not to the Constitution. Recent evidence
of this point, as I observed in my article, was the willingness of the troops to obey presidential orders to
deploy to Iraq despite the fact that the president had failed to secure the constitutionally required
congressional declaration of war.
What if the president ordered the troops to deploy
across the United States and to round up “terrorists” and incarcerate them in military camps, both here and in
Cuba? Again, there can be no doubt that most of the troops would willingly obey the president's orders,
especially in the middle of a “crisis” or “emergency” because they view themselves as professional soldiers
whose job is to serve the president and not to question why but simply to do or die.
Another good example of the allegiance that the
troops have toward the president involves the case of U.S. citizen Jose Padilla. Labeling Padilla a
“terrorist,” the president ordered the troops to take him into military custody, deny him access to an
attorney, and punish him without a trial and due process of law. The troops obeyed without question. Do you
know any troops who have publicly protested the Padilla incarceration or who have resigned from the army in
protest? How many have publicly announced, “I refuse to participate in the Padilla incarceration because I took
an oath to support and defend the Constitution”?
Indeed, how many of the troops resigned in
protest at the president's orders to set up a prisoner camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, knowing that the reason he
and the Pentagon chose Cuba, rather than the United States, was precisely toavoid the constraints of the Constitution?
If the troops didn't protest with respect to Iraq
or Padilla or Gitmo, what is the likelihood they would protest when their commander in chief ordered them to
arrest 100 other Americans “terrorists,” or 1,000?
I repeat: The troops, from the Pentagon on down,
would not disobey orders of the president to disarm and arrest American “terrorists,” especially in the midst
of a “crisis” or “emergency.”
And even if some were to protest, they would be
quickly shunted aside (probably punished as well) and replaced with those troops whose allegiance and loyalty
to the president would be unquestioned.
Now it's true that soldiers are supposed to
disobey unlawful orders, but as a practical matter most of the troops are not going to overrule the judgment of
their commander in chief as to what is legal or not. After all, how many troops involved in the torture and
sex-abuse scandal refused to participate in the wrongdoing, especially since they thought that it was approved
by the higher-ups? Again, how many refused orders to deploy to Iraq despite the fact that there was no
constitutionally required congressional declaration of war?
Imagine that the president issues the following
grave announcement on national television during prime time: “Our nation has come under another terrorist
attack. Our freedoms and our national security are at stake. I have issued orders to the Joint Chiefs of Staff
to immediately take into custody some 1,000 American terrorists who have been identified by the FBI as having
conspired to commit this dastardly attack or who have given aid and comfort to the enemy. I have also ordered
the JCS to take all necessary steps to temporarily confiscate weapons in the areas where these terrorists are
believed to be hiding. These weapons will be returned to the owners once the terrorist threat has subsided. I
am calling on all Americans to support the troops in these endeavors, just as you are supporting them in their
fight against terrorism in Iraq. We will survive. We will prevail. God bless America.”
Now ask yourself: How many of the troops would
disobey the orders of the president given those circumstances, especially if panicked and terrified Americans
and the mainstream press were endorsing his martial-law orders?
The answer: Almost none would disobey. They would
not consider it their job to determine the constitutionality of the president's orders. They would leave that
for the courts to decide. Their professional allegiance and loyalty to their supreme commander in chief would
trump all other considerations, including their oath to “support and defend the
Therefore, if the federal government is the
primary threat to our freedom, then so are the troops: their unswerving loyalty to their commander in chief
makes them the primary instrument by which the federal government is able to destroy or infringe the rights and
freedoms of the citizenry.
No one can deny that we now live in a nation in
which the president wields, albeit unconstitutionally, the omnipotent power to send the entire nation into war
against another nation — and that he has the means — a loyal and obedient army — to exercise that power.
President Bush made his position clear prior to his invasion of Iraq, when he emphasized that while he welcomed
the support of Congress in the event he decided to wage war on Iraq, he didn't need its approval. His position
was reconfirmed by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, whoinformed Congress on October 19, 2005, that the commander in chief's position was that he did not need
the consent of Congress to send the nation into another war, this time against Syria.
No one can deny that we now live in a nation in
which the president claims the omnipotent power to jail and punish any American citizen whom the president
labels a “terrorist,” denying him due process of law, trial by jury, and other constitutional guarantees — and
that he has the means — a loyal and obedient army — to exercise that power.
Thus, as a practical matter the troops
serve not as a defender of our freedoms but instead simply as a loyal and obedient personal army of the
president, ready and prepared to serve him and obey his commands. It is an army that stands ready to obey the
president's orders to deploy to any country in the world for any reason he deems fit and attack, kill, and maim
any “terrorist” who dares to resist the U.S. invasion of his own country. It is also an army that stands ready
to obey the president's orders to take into custody any American whom the commander in chief deems a
“terrorist” and to punish him accordingly.
There is one — and only one — solution to
this threat to our freedoms and well-being: for the American people to heed the warning of our Founding Fathers
against standing armies before it is too late, and to do what should have been done at least 15 years ago:
dismantle the U.S. military empire, close all overseas bases, and bring all the troops home, discharging them
into the private sector, where they would effectively become “citizen-soldiers” — well-trained citizens
prepared to rally to the defense of our nation in the unlikely event of a foreign invasion of our country. And
for the American people to heed the warning ofPresident Eisenhower against the military-industrial complex, by shutting down the Pentagon's
enormous domestic military empire, closing domestic bases, and discharging those troops into the private
“Oh, my gosh, if we did all that, how
would our freedoms be protected?”
Protected from what? Again, there is no
threat of a foreign invasion. And again, terrorism is not a threat to our freedom. Moreover, dismantling the
standing army would remove the primary means by which presidents have succeeded in engendering so much anger
and hatred against our nation — anger and hatred that in turn have given rise to the threat of terrorism
against our nation. And finally, the worst threat to our freedom is our own government, and by dismantling the
standing army we would reduce that threat significantly.
What would happen if a foreign nation ever began
constructing thousands of ships and planes and mobilizing millions of people to invade the United States? The
answer to that threat was also provided by our Founding Fathers: the foreign nation in question would be met by
a nation of free well-armed citizens who would be prepared and willing to rally quickly to oppose any invasion
and conquest of our nation. Invading a United States filled with well-trained, free men and women would be much
like invading Switzerland — like swallowing a porcupine. Don't forget that the men and women who currently
serve in the U.S. armed services wouldn't disappear; instead they would join the rest of us as
citizen-soldiers, people whose fighting skills could be depended on in the unlikely event our nation were ever
threatened by invasion by a foreign power.
We should also keep in mind the tremendous
economic prosperity that would result from the dismantling of America's enormous standing army. Not only would
all the taxpayer money that is being used to fund the standing army be left in the hands of the citizenry for
savings and capital, but all those new people in the private sector would be producing as well, instead of
living off the IRS-provided fruits of other people's earnings. Thus, the economic effect would be doubly
positive, and, while weakening the federal government, it would make our nation
What about foreign monsters, tyrants, oppressors,
and conquerors? The answer to that was also provided by our Founding Fathers: Our government would no longer go
abroadin search of monsters to destroy, but foreigners suffering oppression and tyranny would know that there would always be at
least one nation that would accept them — the United States of America. Rather than police the world,
Americans would focus on producing the freest and most prosperous society in history as a model for the
world and to which those who escaped tyranny and oppression could freely come.
Of course, those Americans who would nonetheless
wish to leave their families and jobs to help oppressed people overseas would still be free to do
We should also bear in mind
theperverse results of the federal government's military empire and overseas interventions.
World War I brought World War II, which brought the Soviet communist occupation of Eastern Europe, which
brought the Cold War, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War, along with an enormous standing army in our
country. The Middle East interventions and meddling have brought us terrorism, the war on terrorism, the USA
PATRIOT Act, the Padilla doctrine, military torture and sex abuse, and CIA kidnappings and “renditions” to
foreign countries for the purpose of proxy torture.
By their fruits, you shall know
One vision — the vision ofmilitarism andempire — will bring
America more violence, death, destruction, impoverishment, and loss of freedom. The other vision — the
vision of a limited-government, constitutional republic with citizen-soldiers — would put our nation back on
the right road of peace, prosperity, harmony, and freedom.

humanitarian crisis. (For background watch the video below: ‘Untold 1000s of innocent victims will die’: UN
urges end of Yemen blockade)
If you've waited like I have, in the hopes that Alex Jones at some
point would show impartiality in his journalism toward Trump, despite helping him get in office, I think
the lack of coverage on Yemen - its circumstances being so dire and severe - to me regrettably makes it
safe to say that that's not going to happen. Alex would have you believe that Trump is some maverick
outside of the controlled left right paradigm, but his
actions clearly prove otherwise: the impending deaths of 50,000 children because of his approved US
military involvement is just one egregious example! And the overwhelming magnitude of PR Alex uses day by
day to keep this facade going, I believe would have even embarrassed Edward Bernays.
Below are just three examples out of many that you can find on this site of Infowars holding Obama and his
administration accountable of its unconstitutional military actions. In contrast, there are no video special
reports from Infowars to post about Trump, though he’s continued and even exacerbated these same illegal
actions! This in itself shows the disparity and bias of their current reporting, and marked the beginning of
the end of me seeing Infowars as a trustworthy impartial news source.
This is why I feel morally obligated, especially in light of the Yemeni genocide, to dissuade people from
listening to Jones unless you want to experience geopolitical news tainted by obfuscations, omissions, and
distractions...he's recently made 25+ youtube videos on the NFL for crying out loud. The irony is, that the
Alex Jones/Infowars videos I've chosen to remain on this site, are largely a repudiation to what Alex is
In short, I am compelled to believe that Alex Jones' reporting omission of what most would agree as the
greatest humanitarian crisis on the planet, clearly displays a stark change from him being an independent news
journalist who cares about justice for all, into being a venal propagandist for persons that view the
publicizing of their war crimes, counter productive to their geostrategic aims in the region. For more
background as to why I say this, please watch the 12 videos at the top of this page. Once you have done that
perhaps you'll have a similar view.
Look for more on this subject to be posted later. But for now I hope that all who actually care about the
men, women and children in Yemen who are caught in this nefarious war, will put pressure on our government by
calling to account the politicians and the news journalists who make it possible, and to use whatever viable
way you can to inform others about these horrific and tragic circumstances.
"We journalists... have to be brave enough to defy those who seek our collusion in selling their latest
bloody adventure in someone else's country... That means always challenging the official story, however
patriotic that story may appear, however seductive and insidious it is. For propaganda relies on us in the
media to aim its deceptions not at a far away country but at you at home... In this age of endless imperial
war, the lives of countless men, women and children depend on the truth or their blood
is on us... Those whose job it is to keep the record straight ought to be the voice of people, not
power." -- John Pilger

2015 has been a banner year for be-headings in Saudi
Arabia. According to Amnesty International be-headings have surpassed 175 at a rate of one
every two days. Many had hoped That new Saudi King Salman would have diminished the brutality,
instead he has accelerated it.
Well then, America and the rest of the representatives of

As US Fuels War Crimes in Yemen, House Says US Involvement is
Published on Nov 17, 2017
Overwhelming support for the nonbinding resolution, which passed the House 366-30, shows
opposition to Saudi Arabia's war in Yemen is growing, but more pressure is needed to stop U.S.
involvement, explains economist Mark Weisbrot of CEPR
Concurrent Resolution 81 (H.Con.Res.81) is sponsored by Representatives, Ro Khanna
(D-Calif.), Walter Jones (R-NC), Mark Pocan (D-Wisc.), Thomas Massie (R-KY), and 39 other lawmakers. The
resolution commands an end to U.S. participation in the Saudi-led war in Yemen.
The sponsors of this resolution contend that such participation, which began in March 2015, was never
authorized under the War Powers Act of 1973. Per the War Powers Act, any congressman can pose a legal challenge
and is guaranteed a floor vote on the issue. This is known as a
On November 1st, the night before the vote was scheduled to take place, House leadership swiftly pushed
through a Rules Committee vote, denying the resolution’s privileged status. Thus, preventing the
guaranteed floor vote.
What was their justification? Apparently, the House Rules Committee feels that the war in Yemen has yet to
‘rise to a level’ where the War Powers Act is applicable.
After preventing the vote on H.Con.Res.81, the House Leadership has said it shall permit a ‘compromise’
resolution on the war in Yemen. The debate, scheduled for the week of November 13th, will discuss the legality
of U.S. involvement in the war. The vote will be non-binding.
Five peace activist groups, heavily engaged in promoting the resolution, said just after the Rules Committee
“We remind the House leadership that under the War Powers Resolution of 1973,
“‘introduction of United States Armed Forces ’includes the assignment of member of such armed forces to
command, coordinate, participate in the movement of, or accompany the regular or irregular military forces of
any foreign country or government when such military forces are engaged…’
U.S. refueling of Saudi-UAE planes bombing Houthi targets in Yemen meets that definition.’”
Therefore the War Powers Act, clearly applies to the war on Yemen.
The House leadership is lying to the American people, supporting the continuation of the world’s worst
humanitarian crisis, violating the War Powers Act, and attempting to prevent Congress from stopping yet another
illegal and unconstitutional war.
Conservatively, since the beginning of 2017, at least 10,000 people have been killed in this war. The heroic
and indispensable Yemeni journalist Nasser Arrabyee has said
the toll could be as high as 60,000 deaths.
The Saudis are ruthlessly bombarding the Yemenis and their civilian infrastructure. The coalition wants to
cripple the people of Yemen to the point of submission. Their end goal is to force Yemen’s civilians to stop
supporting the northern tribesmen if only to alleviate their suffering.
U.S. involvement is most critical to the Saudi effort in this war. The U.S. military is training Saudi
Arabian forces. The U.S. is refueling the coalition’s warplanes not just in the air with tanker sorties, but
also on its bases peppered throughout the region.
As of February, according to an article written by Oriana Pawlyk for Military.com:
“Saudi Arabian coalition jets bombing Houthi rebel sites in Yemen increasingly turn to U.S. Air Force tankers for refueling support almost two years
after the conflict began. Since April 2015, the Air Force has logged 1,778 tanker sorties for the operation,
Air Forces Central Command spokeswoman Capt. Kathleen Atanasoff told Military.com on Tuesday. That includes
1,069 over the past year, an increase of 360, or 50 percent, from the 709 in
the previous period.‘These operations
are ongoing, with aircraft refueling occurring daily,’ Atanasoff said in an email. The service’s tankers such
as KC- 135 Stratotankers and
KC-10 Extenders participated in 7,564
refueling ‘events’ with coalition aircraft, with ‘about 54 million pounds of fuel off-loaded in support of
Saudi operations in Yemen,’ Atanasoff said.”
Donald Trump, doing his best Barack Obama impression, has been more than happy to sell the Saudis hundreds
of billions of dollars worth of weapons to continue their genocide. These include planes, ships, rockets,
precision-guided bombs, cluster bombs, etc. American defense contractors, particularly Lockheed Martin and
Boeing, are likewise more than happy to rake in their handsome profits from Yemen’s destruction. With Jared
Kushner playing the role of matchmaker for Mohammed bin Salman and Marillyn A. Hewson (CEO of Lockheed), the
profits will surely escalate.
However, the Saudis have another powerful ally in this war, al Qaeda. This certainly makes the
upcoming debate on Yemen a great opportunity for the House to finally get around to discussing the legality of
high treason. Or more specifically, fighting another war for al Qaeda.
In addition to the coalition’s sadistic air campaign, Yemini civilians are threatened and attacked on the
ground day in and day out by Sudanese mercenaries, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), and a local
Islamic State affiliate. All of whom support the coalition.
In an article published in
The Hill, Gareth Porter and retired Col. Lawrence Wilkerson (former Secretary of State Colin Powell’s
Chief of Staff) said:
“U.S. intelligence and counter-terrorism officials have regarded AQAP as even more of a foreign terrorist threat
to the United States than ISIS. It mounted efforts to bring down U.S. airlines three times between 2009 and
2012, and nearly succeeded twice. But the Saudi/UAE war in Yemen has made them the most powerful indigenous
armed group in southern Yemen, with more money, arms and territorial control than ever before. The Saudi-led
coalition and the forces of the Saudi backed former regime have
allied openly with AQAP and even fought alongside them. As a result of the war AQAP is now poised for
the first time to compete for national power in Yemen.”
See the map below of the military situation in Yemen as of this July for an idea of just how much territory
AQAP has consolidated. The areas shaded white are controlled by AQAP, the pink areas are controlled by
Hadi-loyal forces, and the green areas are controlled by the Houthi/Saleh alliance:
This is further evidence that U.S. involvement in the Saudi war is illegal. When asked for a
justification for U.S. involvement in the Saudi/UAE war, both Barrack Obama and Donald Trump’s administrations
have cited the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF). That AUMF permits military action only
against those entities who perpetrated the attacks on 9/11. In other words, military action is only permitted
against al Qaeda. Yet, this war is being fought on behalf of al Qaeda against their
enemies, the Houthis.
Indeed, Asher Orkaby made the point in Foreign Affairs that, “far from being aligned with extremists, the
Houthi movement has repeatedly clashed with the Islamic State and AQAP” So, in addition to the fact that this
war was never authorized under the War Powers Act, it is also clearly not covered under the
Since the Obama administration, this is at least the third major conflict wherein the U.S. has found itself
aligned with, fighting along side, arming, and/or supporting al Qaeda. This was official policy notably during
the regime change operation in Libya and in the failed regime change operation in Syria. It is very important
to note that if things had gone to plan in Syria, al Qaeda would have almost certainly taken Damascus.
Neoconservatives are now calling for a new AUMF to explicitly define ‘the enemy’ more broadly as proponents
of so called, ‘radical Islam’. The ‘radical Islam’ handle is a red herring callously promoted by the fake news
establishment. It is meant to dumb down and obscure the realities of these conflicts for domestic audiences.
The cynical neoconservatives are pleased to have Americans view all Arabs and Muslims as one homogenous and
terrifying collective. Most Americans are designedly oblivious to the differences between Sunnis, Shiites, and
other branches of Islam. It is in the interests of the War Party for American voters to see such radically
opposed groups as Daesh and Hezbollah as cut from the same cloth. This is obviously done in order to prevent
rational discussion of these conflicts from ever taking place. For if the American people were well informed of
the consequences of U.S. policy abroad, especially in the Middle East, they would probably not even passively
support their regime’s policies.
In 2013, popular sentiment from people of all political stripes helped to prevent Obama’s would have been
Iraq-style invasion of Syria. I believe one of the primary reasons for this was the effectiveness of the famous
‘I will not fight for al Qaeda in Syria’ social media campaign undertaken by active military personnel.
Americans do not want to support and subsidize al Qaeda in Syria, Libya, Yemen, or anywhere else for that
matter. The reason these horrific policies persist is not the peoples’ apathy, it’s their ignorance.
This is a particularly indefensible war, even by U.S standards. If they choose to, this is a war the
American people can end. The establishment is certainly not comfortable publicly debating and defending their
Yemen policy. Exposing the realities of this conflict and ending the war in Yemen could trigger an anti-war
domino effect. Not since the Vietnam War has there been more fertile soil for an American anti-war

Several members of Congress have introduced legislation to invoke the War Powers Act with an
aim to shut down US support for Saudi Arabia's war in Yemen, but the resolution will not pass because the vast
majority in Congress doesn't oppose war explains Col. Larry Wilkerson
SHARMINI PERIES: It's the Real News Network. I'm
Sharmini Peries coming to you from Baltimore. In October, Representative Ro Khanna, Democrat from California,
Thomas Massie, Republican from Kentucky, Mark Pocan, Democrat from Wisconsin and Walter Jones, Republican from
North Carolina introduced a bipartisan resolution to stop the U.S. military assistance to Saudi Arabia in its
war against the Houthis in Yemen. This bill has the support of 34 other lawmakers who are willing to invoke the
War Powers Act, where Congress can swiftly terminate the U.S. military assistance for Saudi Arabia's war in
Yemen. But some congressional representatives on both sides of the House are reluctant to do so and to
end the war that the UN says is the worst humanitarian disaster of the 21st century. The UN is expressing
concern at the Saudi led coalition's closing of two airports, seaports, and land crossings in Yemen, warning
that this may hamper the delivery of vitally needed humanitarian aid to the Yemeni people where 14.5 million
are cut off from access to clean water and sanitation.
There are some 200,000 people suffering from cholera outbreak and over 1,300 of them
have already died where a quarter of them were children. Who in Congress might be objecting to stopping this
war and why? Let's find out from Colonel Larry Wilkerson. Larry is a retired U.S. colonel and
former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell, now a distinguished professor at the College of
William and Mary. Larry, good to have you with us.
LARRY WILKERSON Good to be with you, Sharmini.
SHARMINI PERIES: Larry, you've been on the Hill working on this effort. Why don't you tell us
about the debates that's going on and the debate that's not going on. From what I understand, the bill will
pass on but no debate will be taking place in the House, but mostly who is reluctant to pass this bill?
LARRY WILKERSON: I think probably Democrats and Republicans
alike, so caught up in the war machine that this country has become, are guilty, guilty as
charged.What you have with Walt Jones from North Carolina is a pariah
Republican from the very start. What you have with Ro Khanna, and with Mark Pocan and with Tom Massie from
Kentucky, Republicans and Democrats, and the co-sponsors are those within the Congress who have the moral
courage and the understanding of U.S. history and the U.S. Constitution sufficient to apply it to what is U.S.
Code Title 50, Chapter 33, sections 1541 to 48, as I recall, which codifies the War Powers Resolution. Now,a
little history there, that's the resolution Congress passed to reassert its constitutional powers over the war
power when it grew very, very tired of the Vietnam conflict, and Richard Nixon, in particular, conduct of that
conflict towards the end of it.
They essentially told the president, "You've got to do this in order to wage war,"
abbreviating the Constitution, Article one, Section eight, a bit but nonetheless reaffirming it mostly. Nixon
vetoed it, and then the Congress, very unusually, passed the legislation over Nixon's veto. Now they are up to
the point where you can only find these iconoclastic members, these pariah members, these members who
understand the Constitution, who understand our history and more than anything understand how dangerous is the
war power to the very liberties of this republic. That's all you have left in the Congress who would, as you
pointed out in your introduction, bring the United States' action to support Saudi Arabia and the United Arab
Emirates in waging this brutal, bloody war, which incidentally the Saudis and the UAE are losing. They're
They don't, they're the only ones who want to do this and so this
legislation is being fought by hook and crook by everyone from Mark Thornberry, the Chairman of the House Armed
Services Committee who loves to have Raytheon and Lockheed Martin making lots of money off the weapons we're
selling to Saudi Arabia, to Ed Royce, the Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee who ultimately has
committee jurisdiction over the bill. They all want to stop it, because very frankly, Sharmini, they like
SHARMINI PERIES: They like war. When the United Nations is putting out such warnings about the
conditions of so many, 14.5 million people who are suffering from this war, the devastation is staring
them in the face, there's so many children affected by this, what are their main motivations for not
wanting to support this bill?
LARRY WILKERSON They say, in the legislation that we could cite that Steny Hoyer and others
have written as an alternative to our legislation, which is called House Continuing Resolution 81, invoking the
War Powers and which should enjoy privileged status under the law and therefore have to go to the House for a
vote and not be stoppable by a committee chairman. What they're doing is offering 599, which if you
read all the whereases, and boy does it go ad nauseam into the whereases, "Whereas this, whereas this, whereas
this," if you read it closely, what you see is, they're trying to excuse the Saudis for what they're doing.
They know darn well that all those whereases in that other legislation, which recognize the nature of the
humanitarian disaster, recognize the nature of the UN recognition of the government supposedly the Saudis are
trying to defend, recognize the fact that Iran is participating and so forth.
Of course, they don't point out that Iran wasn't even in Yemen until the Saudis
attacked, that Iran wasn't doing anything until the Saudis attacked. All of this legislation that Hoyer and
others have put together, and Hoyer by the way, is a Democrat, of course, from Maryland, is just a subterfuge,
an obfuscation of the true issue, which is, the Saudis are fighting a brutal, bloody war. They're killing lots of people. By the indirection of their actions, they're killing potentially half
a billion people over time. The greatest humanitarian tragedy since World War
II. They're bombing sewage and water plants. They're bombing food sources and so forth, and all
this to support a government that I think the UN would probably like to retract its vote on in terms of being
the legitimate government of Yemen. It is, a piece of this 599 is a piece of legislation that shows just how
many ends these folks will go to in order to justify what is truly a brutal war in which the United States is
On top of that, the U.S. participation is causing Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, one of the
most dangerous terrorist groups with a global capability, to grow, to actually harden and grow in its
membership and in its actions. At the same time, we're trying to stop that group under a legitimate AUMF, the
one passed after 9/11, in Yemen with Special Operating Forces. We want to separate those two actions. The
Special Operating Forces going after Al-Qaeda in Yemen are operating under the original Authorization for the
Use of Military Force and therefore are legitimate. This support to the Saudi-UAE
effort to wage this war in Yemen, though, is not legitimate. It's illegal. It was started by the Obama
administration and continued and emphasized by the Trump administration. It's illegal. It's brutal. It's
being lost by Saudi Arabia.
You saw the architect of the war, Mohammad Bin Salman effecting something we haven't seen since
the formation of the House of Saud, recently, the last few days. He actually got rid of 11 princes. He's
getting rid of a lot of business leaders and so forth. I think this is a sign of the instability of the Saud
regime under MBS's leadership, and it's going to be interesting to see how this develops, because this is his
war. He started it. There's no defense. It's a brutal, bloody war, as I pointed
out. It's a major humanitarian disaster, and the United States has no business participating in it. It's
that clear. It's that simple.
SHARMINI PERIES: Right. Larry, give us a sense of what they're telling you when you're on the
Hill about this unconditional support for Saudi Arabia's war.
LARRY WILKERSON: You'd be amazed, Sharmini. I have gotten answers from staffers and
members that range the gamut from, "Well, this is just a niche issue." That's a direct quote. "This is just a
niche issue." My response, of course, was, "500,000 people dying is a niche issue?" Well, not a lot, and get
them a little off guard with that kind of response, to a response such as this, "Well, I always go with my
committee chairman." That is, the committee of jurisdiction. "So, if Ed Royce is going to go against this, I've
got to go against it, too."This is the war power. This is your nation using bombs,
bullets and bayonets to kill the citizens of other nations and, oh, by the way, put its own men and women in
harm's way too.
This is the war power. This is the ultimate power, and you bow to your committee of
jurisdiction? Come on, Mr. Congressman. You can do better than that. To an answer like this one that I got,
"Well, Iran's there." My response, "Iran wasn't there until the Saudi-UAE coalition attacked and we supported
them." "Well, Iran is there now, so we've got to fight them. The Saudis are doing our dirty business for us."
Why do we have to fight Iran in Yemen? What is it that Iran is doing in Yemen that's destabilizing, and
destabilizing in a way that threatens U.S. national security interest? "Well, Iran always does that." Are you
kidding me, Congressman? Can't you think more critically than that? Can't you think more analytically than
that? Iran is not always going against U.S. interest. Iran, in this case, is going against U.S. interest, if
they are, because we are supporting the Saudi coalition that's waging this brutal war.
You just wouldn't believe it, Sharmini. The first reaction I have is
that they don't know what they're talking about. The second reaction I have is that they're venal, they're
cruel, they're brutal. The third reaction I have is, they're ignorant, they're just not willing to look at
the issues. And the fourth reaction I have is that they're in obeisance to the
military-industrial complex, which, if you'll look at the contribution charts, does, Lockheed Martin,
Raytheon, Boeing and so forth does contribute a heck of a lot of money to these people's campaigns. And so
with a little war like this, what's a little war as long as it maintains me in power?
SHARMINI PERIES: Only the lives of hundreds of thousands of
LARRY WILKERSON: Yes. Yes, and just, I mean, when you've got a situation where, for example,
you bomb cranes at the only port where you really can offload the food and clean water to save people's lives
and you, the United States, recognizing these cranes have been bombed and that the water and the food can't be
off-lifted until the cranes are replaced then provide the cranes out of the goodness of your heart, I hope to
replace them, only to have the cranes not able to be off-loaded and reinstalled because of Saudi-UAE bombing.
Bombing which you're supporting with refueling tankers, with targeting intelligence and so forth.
This is not just nonsense, though. It's brutal. Brutal
SHARMINI PERIES: Larry, thank you for your relentless work on the Hill and I wish you more
success. Thank you.

War with Iran is inevitable. The Zionist puppet masters have been trying for years to start a
war with Iran and that reality has never been closer than it is today. The USA, Israel and
Saudi Arabia are all making coordinated moves in preparation for a major war.
“This channel [Truthstream Media] has covered multiple times that Iran
is so much in the crosshairs, it’s such a persistent target. It’s such a country that these war
generals and policy wonks in Washington are salivating over, that an actual entire book was
written by theBrookings Institute - yeah satan’s own think tank - raising the question, ’which path to
Persia?’ Not whether there would be a conflict in Iran, not whether they seek regime change,
but how to get there and maintain international credibility. And they ran through everything
from a false flag attack, to a joint air strike with Israel
or Saudi Arabia, to a domino situation with Syria or surrounding countries, to a PT boat
confrontation and much more.”

Overthrowing Assad: US Policy in Syria
Undermines Legitimate Government
Published on Jun 30, 2017
Syria and Russia warn the latest accusations about chemical weapons are just a
flimsy pretext for a new US strike on Syria. One America's Pearson Sharp has the latest, and
spoke with Virginia Senator Richard Black, who says the US is waging an illegal war to
overthrow President Assad.
"Some members of the coalition may say “We are in clear violation of international law,
maybe this is not right.” Others bought into this coalition to be part of a group fighting
ISIS, and now they are saying “Wait a minute. We didn’t go into Syria to fight the legitimate
duly elected government of Syria; we went there to fight this terrorist organization.”…The
coalition is certainly not there to help the Syrian people; it is there to help Saudi Arabia
with its Wahhabi radical Islamic domination of the entire world beginning with the countries
close to it".
"The thing that is concerning is that the United States has established a military base
within the sovereign territory of Syria. Now up until now we've had four bases in Turkey Saudi
Arabia, Qatar, and Jordan all training terrorist to invade the Syrian nation...this is one
instance in which we actually have a 300 man base, which is actually located within Syria

Why is the US building more military bases on Syrian territory without

with Turkey and Iraq? With ISIS defeated, does the White House really believe it has legal
authority to keep US troops in Syria to "deter Iran"?

Syria : US Flagrant Aggressionis Absurdly Describedas 'Self-Defence'
The shooting down of a Syrian fighter jet by US
forces this week comes on the back of several aggressive actions by American military on the ground. Taken
together the US actions mark an alarming escalation of intervention in the Syrian war – to the point where the
Americans can be said to be now openly at war against Syria.
The American military actions also come despite repeated warnings from Russia against such unilateral
deployment of force. Following the shoot-down of the Syrian SU-22 fighter bomber this week, Russian Foreign
Minister Sergei Lavrov denounced the American violence as an act of «flagrant
aggression» against a sovereign state. Some Russian lawmakers such as Duma foreign affairs chief Alexei Pushkov
went further and condemned it as an act of war by the Americans.
Of course, Washington’s logic is riddled with absurdity. To claim that
its forces are acting in self-defense overlooks the glaring reality that the US-led military coalition has no
legal mandate whatsoever to be in Syria in the first place. Its forces are in breach of international law by
operating on Syrian territory without the consent of the government in Damascus and without a mandate from the
UN Security Council.
Another absurdity is the claim that the US forces are «protecting» militants whom they are supposedly
training to «fight» the Islamic State terror group (ISIS). On at least three occasions over the past month,
American military have carried out air strikes on Syrian government forces and their allies near a
strategically important border crossing between Syria and Iraq. The Americans claim that the Syrian government
forces were posing a threat to a military base at Al Tanf on the Syrian side of the border where they are
training militants belonging to a group called Maghawir al Thawra.
The Pentagon claims that these militants are being trained to «fight and defeat» ISIS. The
installation last week of long-range artillery batteries known as HIMARS at Al Tanf was justified as a
self-defense measure. US Colonel Ryan Dillon said: «We have increased our military footprint and are prepared
for any threat that is presented to us by the pro-regime forces».
As with the shooting down of the Syrian fighter jet this week, American forces are invoking
«self-defense» as a legal rationale. But as Moscow has pointed out, the Americans have no legal right to be
present on Syrian territory and then, secondly, to be unilaterally declaring «deconfliction zones» for what are
de facto invasive forces.
A further nail to the American lie is exposed when the nature of the militant group is looked at more
closely. Unverified video footage showing the US-backed militants at Al Tanf
indicates that they are another brand of jihadist terrorism. The videos show Maghawir al
Thawra militants repeatedly shouting the jihadist slogan «allu akbar». They are also equipped
with the notorious top-of-the-range white Toyota land cruisers that other jihadist groups have obtained
through funding by Saudi Arabia and other Gulf monarchies.
Syrian sources have confirmed to this author that the group displayed in the videos is
indeed the Maghawir al Thawra and that they are unquestionably jihadist. Yet this is the same group that the US
has openly declared to be training at its military base at Al Tanf to «fight and defeat ISIS», and which the US
is supposedly «protecting» from advancing Syrian army units and their allies.
What’s more, it is reported that in addition to American forces at Al Tanf,
there are British and other NATO troops, as well as those from two other Arab states. This amounts to a
full-scale US-NATO intervention in the Syrian war – an intervention which seems to be clearly on the side of
jihadist terror groups.
After the shooting down of the Syrian warplane by American forces this week, Moscow noted pointedly that
Washington has openly taken sides with terror groups aiming to topple the sovereign government of Syrian
President Bashar al-Assad. There can be no other pretense.
The bolstering of the US military footprint at the Al Tanf base near the Syrian-Iraqi border is another sign
of brazen American siding with terror groups. As the videos above show, the notion that these militants are
somehow «moderate rebels» who are combating ISIS does not bear scrutiny.
This US-led charade of supporting «moderate rebels» has been going on for
nearly six years in Syria. The mercurial «Free Syrian Army» and the «Syrian Defense Forces» are part of this
smoke and mirrors game designed to obscure the fact that the Americans and their NATO allies are using proxy
militant groups dominated by jihadist terror networks, for the objective of regime change. The plethora of
different names for these proxies – all whom are illegally armed groups – is just part of the cynical game to
conceal the fact that Washington and its allies are waging a criminal war against a sovereign
As independent investigative journalist Vanessa Beeley told this author: «The labelling by
the US of any extremist faction fighting in Syria as a Free Syrian Army division is nothing more than a cynical
marketing ploy to rebrand these group as ‘moderate’».
Beeley says that the Maghawir al Thawra militants whom the US claim to be protecting in a supposed campaign
to defeat ISIS is just another instance of Washington «rebranding terror groups as moderates».
Another giveaway to the real nature of this US-patronized group came from a Reutersreport in which one of the
Maghawir commanders was interviewed.
Maghawir al Thawra spokesman Abu al Atheer said the goal of the US forces was to take the eastern Syrian
city of Deir Ezzor. That city is already under the control of the Syrian government forces and their allies. If
the US and its militants were motivated to defeat ISIS, then why are they moving on Deir Ezzor?
The Maghawir commander also revealed his extremist ideological affiliations when he went on to talk about
Iranian-backed forces allied with the Syrian government. «The battle is not over and we will not allow the
Iranian Shi’ites to occupy our land. Our response to those who stand against us will be cruel», he told
Recall this is the same supposedly «moderate» group whom the US, British and Norwegian NATO troops are
training at Al Tanf and for which the US has installed long-range artillery batteries in «an act of
Events in Syria seem to be spiraling toward a bigger international war. This week Iran hit ISIS bases near
Deir Ezzor with medium range ballistic missiles fired from inside Iranian territory. Tehran says the action was
coordinated with the Syrian government. Meanwhile, the US is stepping up its direct assault on Syrian
Another telling development in the slide to wider war is that the US forces are moving towards blatantly
defending jihadists like Maghawir al Thawra from Syrian, Russian and Iranian forces who are the only ones
actually taking the battle to defeat jihadists. The US mask of hiding behind «moderate rebels» is slipping.
Washington is now seen to be increasingly at war in Syria. It seems only a matter of time before US forces come
into direct clash with Russian and Iranian military.

In signing over the single largest arms deal in US history with
Saudi Arabia, “both the neo-cons in DC, as well as the all-powerful American Military-Industrial complex can
declare a truly unprecedented victory”. It is also a triumph for the CIA, and the CIA’s international
network of terror fronts, including ISIS and Al-Qaeda. This arms deal, globalism on super steroids, is on
top of already immeasurable military-industrial lucre, a mushrooming Pentagon budget, and a CIA black budget
that is uncounted as well as bottomless.
It is a promise that the existing criminal Anglo-American war and terrorism agenda—the
Bush-Obama-Clinton/New World Order blueprint for conquest—not only continues, but receives a super
escalation, towards regime change in Syria, as well as continuing aggression towards Iran.
Trump essentially continues to massively fund terrorism, including future attacks on
American targets via the CIA and the Deep State, while spewing nonsensical hot air about fighting terrorism.

“Opening counter-terrorism center in Saudi is a farce; Saudi is #1 exporter of

Alex Jones was similarly disturbed:

Trip itself is capitulation
Trump’s foreign junket amply demonstrates how little control Trump has over his own actions.
According to Mike Cernovich was forced to make the trip by the globalists who actually control the White
House, and who drive foreign policy: National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, Deputy National Security
Advisor Dina Habib Powell (and here) and Chief Economic Advisor Gary Cohn (and see here).
This neocon Saudi lobby has co-opted the White House, along with Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump
(Dina Habib Powell is Ivanka Trump’s advisor). This is the definition of an internal coup, and a continuing
political suicide that Trump himself has enabled, and seems unwilling and unable to recognize or combat.
The arms and nuclear weapons deal itself was orchestrated by McMaster, according to Cernovich,
all towards a ground war in Syria.
Powell is close to Hillary Clinton aide and Muslim Brotherhood-connected Huma Abedin, Obama
senior advisor Valerie Jarrett, and others who are working to destroy Trump. Both McMaster and Habib Powell
are suspected of leaking anti-Trump stories to the Washington Post and New York Times.

how Donald Trump killed more people in the month of March than all of the so-called terror states of the world
combined. And Trump only became a more proficient killer in the month of April. “The Airwars monitoring group
has compiled reports of 1,280 to 1,744 civilians killed by at least 2,237 bombs and missiles that rained down
from U.S. and allied warplanes in April (1,609 on Iraq and 628 on Syria). The heaviest casualties were in and
around Old Mosul and West Mosul, where 784 to 1,074 civilians were reported killed, but the area around Tabqa
in Syria also suffered heavy civilian casualties.”
This is the same Donald Trump who on the campaign trail told
Fox & Friends, “Who blew up the World Trade Center? It wasn't the Iraqis, it was Saudi--take a look at
Saudi Arabia, open the documents.” Now, instead of opening the documents ON Saudi Arabia, Trump is opening the
purse FOR Saudi Arabia.
What is it about Christians and conservatives that they can be so easily duped into supporting war? What is
it that makes them not only overlook and excuse wars of aggression but also enthusiastically endorse and
champion such wars? Nothing builds the size and scope of government like WAR; nothing creates socialist
government like WAR; nothing causes people to accept authoritarian government like WAR; nothing separates
families like WAR; nothing leaves children homeless and helpless like WAR; nothing fills the political swamp
like WAR; nothing empowers globalists like WAR; nothing destroys a country’s economy like WAR; nothing destroys

Newsweek has an articleout called
“When It Comes to Beheadings, ISIS has Nothing on Saudi Arabia”.
The article accurately illustrates that Saudi Arabia is
essentially anestablished version of ISIS; in fact it was established the
same way, which is also how Britain established its colonies like the USA, how US/Israel was, and is
being, established, how the Afghan Taliban wasestablishedin a joint
venture with the USA that lasted until 2001, and so on.
Newsweek details how the Saudis behead more people than ISIS (not to mention Saudis are big
supporters of ISIS, and, according to leaked 2009 US documents, are the world’s overall biggest supporters of
Sunni terror groups such as the formerly US-backed Taliban.)
The Saudi theocracy doesn’t just behead people or crucify people. They slice your head off in
public then crucify you.
…if you were accused of banditry or drug smuggling, like seven Yemenis who were beheaded last
year, your corpse will also be crucified.
There are different methods of crucifying the headless … while the headless corpse is mounted,
your head is placed in a plastic bag… Your head is then raised above your body and appears to be floating and
detached. Your corpse might be kept in that position for up to four days, as a grotesque warning to others of
what might happen if they stray outside the law.
The article documents how this is done to people accused of being “sorcerers”, adulterers, people who
plead not guilty to crimes (and, the article suggests, are likely innocent), and political dissidents (though
Israel has the most political prisoners in the region, and it should also be noted that the USA puts people in
cages for the rest of their lives for pretty crimes like shoplifting, while almost no one else does
Noam Chomsky pointed out in atalkthis month that Saudi Arabia
is the single most radical Islamic state, and makes Iran look moderate by comparison (even
though Iran also executes people; the top three countries for executing their own people are always Iran, Saudi

nuclear weapons, via adealwith nuclear
Pakistan, another Islamic fundamentalist US ally and distant runner up to Obama’s USA
forgreatest threat to worldpeace at the start of 2014.
Newsweek likewise points out that Iran has “a far more democratic political process than Saudi
Arabia.” Iran, like the USA, China, and others, has a kind of fake democracy wherein candidates must be
supported by religious authorities; in China, it is state authorities, and in the US, financial authorities,
Newsweek then documents how the USA demonizes and criticizes not Saudi Arabia, but rather the more
moderate and “democratic” country, Iran. When US politicians visit Saudi Arabia, as Kerry,
Obama,Hillary Clinton, and others regularly do, they “do not publicly
condemn the country”; human rights violations are “not mentioned”.
Indeed, though the USA cages more women than any other country in the world, Saudi Arabia is the only
country where women are not allowed to operate cars.
Newsweek then points out that this behavior – criticizing a relatively moderate country but not a far
more extremist ally – reveals a blatant double-standard by the US.
However, Newsweek then asks “why” the USA has this double-standard, and doesn’t explore the
question beyond offering a couple of incidental hints throughout the article.
Perhaps the Newsweek author doesn’t know, thinks the answer is unknowable, or has some other
motive for not exploring the topic further, but it should be pursued and the article presents a good
Again, the question is, why does the otherwise wonderful USA have this confusing and seemingly
nonsensical “double standard”, wherein it criticizes countries (like Iran) that are moderate compared to US
ally Saudi Arabia (not to mention scores of others)?
US Relationship with Saudi Arabia
“…starting in the 1930s, the Americans would come to displace the British as the chief ally of the
Saudis, especially after the American-aided discovery of vast reserves of oil in Saudi lands. [Murray]
Rothbard spelled out the military and crony
The Rockefeller interest and other Western Big Oil companies have had intimate ties with the
absolute royalties of Kuwait and Saudi Arabia ever since the 1930s. During that decade and World War II,
King Ibn Saud of Saudi Arabia granted a monopoly concession on all oil under his domain to the
Rockefeller-control-led Aramco, while the $30 million in royalty payments for the concession was paid by
the U.S. taxpayer.
The Rockefeller-influenced U.S. Export-Import Bank obligingly paid another $25 million to Ibn Saud
to construct a pleasure railroad from his main palace, and President Roosevelt made a secret appropriation
out of war funds of $165 million to Aramco for pipeline construction across Saudi Arabia. Furthermore, the
U.S. Army was obligingly assigned to build an airfield and military base at Dhahran, near the Aramco
Oilfields, after which the multi-million dollar base was turned over, gratis, to Ibn Saud.”
In the 1940s, US planners confirmed that the Middle East, particularly Saudi Arabia,
contained the greatest material prizes in world history, and set about ensuring that the US could control these
resources (just as the US had previously worked to control the formerly most important resource, cotton, in
order to bring Britain “to its knees”. Britain then was holding profitable colonies and enticing lands that
ambitious US slave-owning empire-builders were drooling over.)
In the 1950s, Dwight Eisenhower asked his staff, privately, the question asked again decades later,
publicly, by Bush Jr.: Why do people in the Middle East seem to hate us? His staff investigated and determined
that it was because the USA prevented democracy and supported repressive regimes in the Middle East so the US
could control the region’s energy resources, and that the US should continue doing that.
The cozy gift-based US relationship with Saudi Arabia continues up to today, under Obama, who brown-noses
the Saudis by, for example, sending them the biggest shipment of lethal weapons in US history, which Obama did
in 2013. The shipment included internationally banned cluster bombs, one of the personal favorite toys of
Obama, as well as the Boston
Professor Chalmers Johnson concludes from his extensive research that if Saudi Arabia were to become
too upset with the USA, stopped dealing its oil in dollars and switched to some other currency (as did Saddam
prior to the US invasion, after which the US switched Iraq back to dollars), then the entire US empire would
So, quite clearly, the USA refrains from criticizing Saudi Arabia because it is a cornerstone of the
extremely profitable (for people like the Rockefellers and Bushes)US empire, but that is only one

Provocative U.S. Military Drills:
the Source of Manufactured N.K. Crisis
(An Exceprt From Article Below)
"Imagine if North Korea decided to conduct massive “live fire” military drills,
accompanied by a Chinese naval flotilla, just three miles off the coast of California. And, let’s say, they
decided to send formations of strategic high-altitude aircraft loaded with nuclear bombs to fly along the
Canada and Mexico borders while tens of thousands of combat troops accompanied by hundreds of tanks and armored
vehicles rehearsed a “shock and awe” type blitz onto US territory where they would immediately crush the
defending army, level cities and critical civilian infrastructure, and topple the regime in Washington." --
S. Korea, U.S. launch Key Resolve military drills
South Korea - U.S. kick off Ulchi Freedom Guardian
South-Korea and the U.S. kicked off their annual Key Resolve military drills
today... complementing the Foal Eagle exercises that began two weeks ago. Amid perhaps the
highest inter-Korean tensions in recent years,... the joint drills feature some of the most
advanced U.S. military aircraft and weaponry. Our Kim Jung-soo has the details. With tensions
running high amid North Korea's latest missile tests, South Korea's Defense Ministry has
announced the start of this year's Key Resolve exercises. The drills started Monday and will
continue for approximately two weeks until March 24th in tandem with the Foal Eagle drills that
began on March 1st and run through April 30th. The drills complement one another -- the Key
Resolve drills are command-post exercises that utilize computer simulations of possible North
Korean provocations, while the Foal Eagle drills consist solely of field-training exercises.
Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff have said that a combined 300-thousand troops would be involved
in this year's Key Resolve and Foal Eagle exercises -- 290-thousand from South Korea and
10-thousand from the U.S. Military officials have also said that this year's exercises would be
conducted with the assumption that the THAAD missile defense system had already been installed
on the Korean peninsula. They've also said a variety of other U.S. strategic weaponry would be
deployed, including the nuclear-power aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, which is expected to
arrive in Busan on Wednesday, and a special squadron of F-35B stealth fighters from U.S. Forces
Japan that are expected to join the exercises sometime this week. It has also been reported
that starting sometime next month... the South Korean and U.S. Navy and Marines will conduct
large-scale landing operations involving the American amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme
Richard. On a separate note, Seoul's defense ministry also said Monday that the annual Soaring
Eagle exercises -- which are conducted solely by the South Korean Air Force to test combat
readiness -- had begun on March 10th and will continue through this Friday with the
participation of over 50 military aircraft. Kim Jung-soo, Arirang News.
We start this morning with the annual military exercises that begin today,...
South Korea and the United States are holding their Ulchi Freedom Guardian drill,... amid
escalating tension on the Korean Peninsula after Pyongyang's launch of two ICBMs... and its
threats to strike the U.S. territory of Guam. North Korea, once again, has been vocal in its
objections, warning Seoul and Washington that the exercises could lead to a catastrophe. Ji
Myung-kil starts us off. The Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercise which will run from August 21st to
the end of this month... traces its roots to the joint South Korea-U.S. command post exercises
back in the 1950s. Tens of thousands of South Korean and U.S. troops will participate in the
drill... to help evaluate and improve combined military procedures which are critical to the
defense of the Korean peninsula. 2017 UFG to be similar in size to last year's} This year's
drill, much of it computer-simulated, will be similar in size to that of last year's... but it
is not known whether the U.S. will be sending strategic assets. Admiral Harry Harris... the
commander of the U.S. Pacific Command is currently visiting South Korea to inspect the joint
exercise. N. Korea fired submarine-launched ballistic missile during 2016 UFG} North Korea,
meanwhile, has long denounced the drills, seeing them as a rehearsal for an invasion. During
last year's Ulchi Freedom Guardian,... Pyongyang test-fired a submarine-launched ballistic
missile followed by a fifth nuclear test a few weeks later. N. Korea says Seoul and Washington
'adding fuel to fire'} On Sunday the North warned that Seoul and Washington are "adding fuel to
the fire" and driving the situation on the divided peninsula into a "catastrophe." Tensions
escalated between N. Korea and U.S. in recent weeks } Tensions between North Korea and the U.S.
have risen in recent weeks... as their respective leaders' exchanged harsh rhetoric. Pyongyang
had threatened to fire four ballistic missiles near waters off the U.S. territory of Guam...
but backed off its threat last week while key U.S. officials played down fears that war with
the North was imminent.

why do they fear us?”
etween 1950 and 1953 the United States carpet bombed North Korea,
they bombed it back into the stone age 4 to 5 MILLION Koreans died according to the
Encyclopedia Britannica. The main complaint of American pilots in December 1950 that was two
years before the war ended, was that there was nothing left to bomb in North Korea because not
one structure taller than one story was still standing by 1951, and yet they bombed for another
two years. So when US government now simulates the aerial destruction of North Korea as it does
every year with war exercises, some of which are going on right now, that’s not a ‘war game’
for the North Koreans, that’s not a game, that’s not funny.They’ve been through there, they’ve had their country
destroyed.And so they’re demanding the US suspend
the war games simulating the destruction of North Korea. And the North Koreans have said over
and over again :if you do that, we will suspend missile tests, and nuclear weapon tests to
which Obama said NO and Trump a month ago said NO. So yes, there is a basis to have a settlement for these

North Korea is ready to strike unless 'US starts acting sensibly'
South Koreans Protest against Ongoing US South Korea Joint Military
(Korean) Yu Young-jae, leader of South Korean peace activist group: "South
Korea and the US are holding the Ulchi Freedom Guardian (UFG) war exercise. South Korea and the
US are claiming that this is a defensive exercise, but it is clearly an attacking exercise when
you look at its character and size. We strongly insist they stop the exercise since this
exercise seriously threatens peace in the Korean peninsula."
The activists said they too believed the exercise's real purpose is to prepare
for an attack. "We strongly insist they stop the exercise since this exercise seriously
threatens peace in the Korean peninsula," said Yu Young-jae, one of the peace group's leaders.
"The projected war manoeuvres under the spurious signboard of 'defence' are belligerent and
undisguised (North Korea)-targeted war exercises," Pyongyang's military said in a statement
carried Sunday by the official Korean Central News Agency. North Korea's military will deal a
"merciless counterblow" to the US and South Korea, "the severest punishment no one has ever met
in the world," it said. The statement did not elaborate on how the North would retaliate. South
Korea's Defence Ministry said on Monday it was keeping a close watch on North Korea and had
spotted no suspicious activity.
A North Korean diplomat says preparations are complete for a strike on the US
territory of Guam if America "does not act sensibly." RT discussed this with author and human

US-South Korea military drills could lead to uncontrollable phase of
nuclear war - Pyongyang
Published on Aug 21, 2017
Pyongyang has described the US-South Korea annual military drills, set to kick
off on Monday, as the “most explicit expression of hostility,” voicing fears that the war
games, known as the Ulchi Freedom Guardian, may “evolve into actual fighting.”
South Koreans held a protest at the Port of Busan on Sunday where South Korean
and U.S. military are conducting joint military exercises of Key Resolve and Double Dragon.
More than 17,200 soldiers are participating in this year's landing exercise of Double Dragon,
the largest ever in history. At the military exercise site, some South Korean residents chanted
slogans and waved banners, such as "We Want Peace," "No War," "Stop Military Exercise," and "No
Deployment of THAAD system," to express their opposition to the exercise. "The joint military
exercise by South Korea and the United States could only make the peninsula fall into the mire
of war. We hope the exercise will stop right now. The DPRK people and South Koreans are one
nationality, and we should exclude external powers. We should see our nation's own interests. I
think South Korea and DPRK can reconcile at any time and we can live together. It is the
unification that we need," said a protestor. "Just like what you have seen here, the bombing,
smoke of gunpowder and military exercise are going to push the peninsula to war. If we keep
doing this, the war will happen at any time. What we want is peace, but not war. Therefore, we
must struggle against it unremittingly," said another protester. The United States dispatched
its nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis as an addition to supporting the

A BRACING ACCOUNT
OFA WAR THAT IS EITHER MISUNDERSTOOD, FORGOTTEN, OR WILLFULLY
For Americans, it was a
discrete conflict lasting from 1950 to 1953. But for the Asian world the Korean War was a
generations-long struggle that still haunts contemporary events. With access to new evidence
and secret materials from both here and abroad, including an archive of captured North Korean
documents, Bruce Cumings reveals the war as it was actually fought. He describes its origin as
a civil war, preordained long before the first shots were fired in June 1950 by lingering fury
over Japan’s occupation of Korea from 1910 to 1945. Cumings then shares the neglected history
of America’s post–World War II occupation of Korea, reveals untold stories of bloody
insurgencies and rebellions, and tells of the United States officially entering the action on
the side of the South, exposing as never before the appalling massacres and atrocities
committed on all sides.

On the 65th anniversary of the beginning of the Korean War James is joined by
James Perloff of jamesperloff.com to discuss his in-depth article, "The Korean War: Another
Conflict that Served the Illuminati Agenda." From deals with the Soviets to protection for the
Chinese to pulled punches and "missed" opportunities, we examine how the pretext for the war
was created, why it was thrown, and who was behind it.
The Following Are Underreported Essential Points To The Conflict:
North Korea has been under nuclear threat since the Korean War. Our war plans for decades called
for using nuclear weapons very early in a new war. That’s one reason there hasn’t been a new war ,
but every general prepares for the worse case. And so North Korea has essentially spent about fifty
or sixty years developing the only deterrent to nuclear weapons that they possibly can, until they
got their own nuclear weapons in the last two years. [Lawrence Velvel] Do you think most Americans
know that we had nuclear weapons in South Korea as early as, well in 1958 or so? [B.C.] That’s
something that is very mystified. I’ve tried to bring it out time and time again in articles, but I
went to the Eisenhower library and looked at the documents on it. We put ‘Honest John’ missiles -
nuclear tipped - into South Korea in 1958. The decision was made in 1957 by John Foster Dulles. And
you look at the National Security Council’s records, they know they’re violating a cardinal
principle of the armistice that ended the Korean War : which is not to introduce new and different
quality weapons. It’s said, ’Well you know they’re always doing that, they’re bringing in new MIGs
and everything, so we can do this. But I mean to go from conventional weapons to nuclear weapons
essentially obliterated that article of the [Armistice]. [L.V.] Yeah that’s taken as these days,
that is the line…that is the line. [B.C.] They were there in the hundreds in the 70’s and 80’s.
[L.V.] In the hundreds?! [B.C.] Yeah hundreds, because they started with bringing in tactical
nuclear weapons like nuclear mines that you could fit in a backpack. Soldier in a jeep goes up to
the DMZ and puts one down…In the 80’s a lot of this came out because our own military didn’t like
it. I heard a retired general give a lecture at Carnegie Endowment where he said, ‘we done things
like put a nuclear weapon on a helicopter., and then it goes up near the DMZ, and what if it is,
you know, somehow captured by the North Koreans or gets off course.’ He said, “We relied way too
much on a nuclear deterrent to the point the South Korean army doesn’t think it has to fight in a
new war because we are going to wipeout the North Koreans.” -- Bruce Cuming &
“…The United States in the region has a central objective that does not concern Kim Jong-un or his
nuclear weapons. Rather, it is driven by the perennial necessity to increase forces in the region
for the purposes of maintaining a balance of military force (Asian Pivot) and ultimately trying to
contain the rise of the People’s Republic of China (PRC).” -- Federico Pieraccini
“…Think about this, if they [The C.I.A] thought that Kin Jong Un was getting ready to nuke American
citizens, they could assassinate this guy within 24 hours. They could knock him off like that, his
government would crumble. The problem with that though, is that the C.I.A. would not have control
of the process of the rebuilding of the North Korean government. What they want is total control.
What they are doing is trying to arrange a full scale military operation like what we did in Iraq.
That way we’d get in, we’d control the infrastructure, we’d control the setting up of the new
government and we’d install a puppet. An entire puppet government, that’s what we did in Iran, and
Afghanistan. And this includes controlling the policies of the new government in a way that favors
the United States, and includes new U.S. military outposts being setup in North Korea. Of course
that’s something that China and Russia are not going to sit by and just allow to happen….There are
mutually beneficially things that can be determined here [between US and NK] , but unless the two
sides sit down and talk, nothing is going to happen, and that is the actual goal of the C.I.A. They
don‘t want there to be negotiations. They want what they want. The globalists do not want
compromise, they are after control. And they are not going to get control as long as Kim is in
power; he‘s too independent. The Kim dynasty , they don‘t go along with what the C.I.A. tells them
to do…And that is why I believe that there is not going to be a Donald Trump negotiation to resolve
I think that the deep state is going to push and push and push; they will create a false flag
attack if necessary, something will happen to make it look like we absolutely have to go to war
with North Korea…This is not a simple issue. This is certainly not a story of just some crazy
little dictator who is off his rocker and he wants to control the world; he wants to develop
nuclear weapons and destroy everyone. This is not Dr Evil, this is a puny little guy who was thrust
into a position well before he was ready for it, who is scared to death, doesn’t know what to do.
But all he knows is the C.I.A. is going to murder him if he gives them the chance. ” --
“The US ‘War Economy’. One can also argue there are very powerful vested interests in the US
corporate structure who have, and will continue to benefit from a heated arms build-up, and will
certainly use the North Korea threat as a justification to push forward spending, especially in
light of Washington’s new found austerity culture ushered in through recent budget sequestrations.
America’s new pivot towards Asia provides the catch-all policy net, while the two-way propaganda
duel between the two countries provides the fear needed to justify a new military build up in the
“By now, we should all have learned the lesson: mainstream media, not politics, is the true engine
of war.” -- Patrick Henningsen
In response to the recent U.N. Security Council vote, North Korea’s government stated that it would
not negotiate over its nuclear or missile programs. The assumption that seems to be behind Trump
administration policy is that they can be cajoled into doing this, and furthermore that they can be
pressured into making concessions on these issues before talks begin. The administration is
laboring under the delusion that it is still possible to persuade North Korea to give up on things
that its government considers essential to its security. If anything, the heightened tensions and
increased pressure in recent months have just confirmed their leadership in the belief that they
need their nuclear weapons and missiles more than ever. Needless to say, talking about raining down
“fire and fury” on them isn’t going to make them more likely to compromise on this point.
One of the more common hawkish refrains about North Korea is that “diplomacy has been tried and it
failed,” but this ignores that North Korea acquired nuclear weapons in response to some of the same
pressure tactics that hawks wanted to use in lieu of the nuclear deal with Iran. There was a
diplomatic agreement in place that had succeeded in limiting North Korea’s nuclear program, but the
Bush administration wasn’t satisfied with it. They blew up the agreement, and North Korea withdrew
from the NPT and tested its first nuclear weapon soon thereafter. North Korea is a cautionary tale
about what happens when hard-liners in Washington prefer to scrap an imperfect but working
nonproliferation agreement in favor of pursuing the fantasy of forcing the other side’s total
capitulation. -- Daniel Larison
“Talk of war is dangerous and irresponsible. It would have catastrophic consequences for Northeast
Asia and the world. Military action could slow the North’s program, but not eliminate it. Threats
of war, moreover, only make the North redouble efforts to hold the United States at risk. And they
greatly exacerbate the greatest risk of all: an inadvertent war on the Korean peninsula with the
potential for hundreds of thousands of deaths, including thousands of American citizens.
Unfortunately, some American leaders believe that if there is a war, keeping it on the Korean
peninsula will keep us safe. I maintain that a nuclear war anywhere will have catastrophic
consequences for America.” -- Siegfried S. Hecker
"The reason that George Bush was so intent on screwing up the [94Carter/Clinton] deal. Was because when
he took power, the Japanese and South Koreans were basically already ignoring the Americans and had their
own North Korea policy at that point. And really wanted to push The Sunshine policy, they called it, toward
reunification in slow motion, but still toward peace, toward understanding… families aloud to visit back
and forth across the border…Trains that run back and forth so that you could have multinational businesses
on both sides of the border…begin to forge these relationships, and thought-out the crisis. And to the Bush
regime that was absolutely intolerable. That our Japanese and South Korean satellites would think that they
can have their own foreign policy on North Korea issues. And that is why they really moved to quash it…
And that goes to show that the American government’s interest in Korea is not peace. The American
government’s interest in Korea is to keep them divided, because the Pacific is an American lake. And a big
part of the reason that the Japanese rely on us, is because they’ve got that North Korean problem to deal
with etc. etc…We keep them divided, we keep them conquered, we keep them our satellites. If we can tell the
Japanese, ‘you shut up we’ll take care of it’ then we can keep them quiet. If we can’t credibly say that we
are in charge of the situation, then they’re going to go ahead and make their own policy. So the American
policy is that we prefer a divided Korea that could explode into nuclear warfare, rather than sunshine and
peace, and globetrotters and gymnastics and symphony orchestras, and a future that anyone would want to
look forward to. So that’s where your government is coming from on this. They are evil. And they are
refusing to solve a problem that is really pretty simple to solve…At least for a beginning." --
The North Koreans want peace. They want a formal end to the war and they want guarantees that the
United States won’t preemptively attack them. Is that too much to ask?
But the United States won’t sign a treaty with the North because it is not in its interests to do so.
Washington would prefer for things to stay just the way they are today. In fact, Hillary Clinton said as
much in a speech she made to Goldman Sachs in 2013. Here’s an excerpt:
CLINTON: “We don’t want a unified Korean peninsula, because if there were one South Korea would be dominant
for the obvious economic and political reasons.-We [also] don’t want the North Koreans to cause more
trouble than the system can absorb. So we’ve got a pretty good thing going with the previous North Korean
leaders [Kim Il-sung and Kim Jung-il]. And then along comes the new young leader [Kim Jung-un], and he
proceeds to insult the Chinese. He refuses to accept delegations coming from them…..So the new [Chinese]
leadership basically calls him [Kim Jung-un] on the carpet. …Cut it out. Just stop it. Who do you think you
are? You are dependent on us [the Chinese], and you know it. (WikiLeaks)
There it is in black and white. The US does not want a unified Korea. (“for obvious economic and political
reasons.”) The US wants to keep the country split up so it can keep the North isolated and underdeveloped,
maintain the South’s colonial dependence on the US, and perpetuate the occupation. That’s what Washington
wants. The goal is not security, but power, greed and geopolitical positioning.
From Washington’s point of view, the status quo is just dandy which is why there is no incentive to end the
war, sign a treaty, wind down the occupation, or provide security guarantees for the North. As Hillary
cheerily opines, “We’ve got a pretty good thing going on.” -- Mike

NO ONE NEEDS ANOTHER KOREAN WAR [US estimates of war in Korea, made a decade ago,
suggest America would incur 250,000 casualties in a war that would cost one million Korean
by Eric Margolis
March 18, 2017
Panmunjom, the ‘peace village’ on the incredibly tense
demilitarized zone (aka DMZ) between North and South Korea, is one of the weirdest places I’ve ever visited.
Tough North Korean soldiers lurk about, watched by equally tough South Korean troops in one-way sunglasses and
an aggressive judo ‘warrior’ stance.
When I was filming at Panmunjom, we were warned to beware of North Koreans who could at any
moment rush into the main conference room and drag us into North Korea.
It was into this crazy house that the new, jet-lagged US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was
transported from turbulent Washington. After a quick look at the DMZ, Tillerson announced `no more Mr. Nice
Guy.’ The US had run out of `strategic patience’ with North Korea and will go to war to end North Korea’s
‘threat’ to the US, he warned.
Tillerson, formerly CEO of EXXON, is well-versed in world affairs but the Korean
peninsula’s complexities could be too much for him to quickly absorb. Immediately threatening war is no way
to begin a diplomatic mission. But Tillerson was obviously reading from a script written by his boss, Donald
Trump, whose knowledge of North Asian affairs makes Tillerson look like a Confucian scholar.
Welcome to Trump’s credo: tweet loudly and walk with a big stick.
What would war between the US and North Korea mean? A very grim scenario if it
The US has nearly 80,000 military personnel in South Korea and Japan, as well as more
war-fighting units in Guam, which the US conquered from Spain in 1898. The US 7th Fleet patrols the region,
armed with tactical nuclear weapons. US nukes are also based in South Korea and Guam. As we recently saw, US
heavy B-1 and B-52 bombers can fly from North America to Korea.
South Korea has a formidable, 600,000-man army equipped with state of the art weapons. I’ve
been up on the DMZ with the 2nd ROK division. As an old soldier, I was very impressed by their skill and
North Korea’s one million-man armed force is large, but obsolescent. Its great strength in
heavy artillery partly compensates for its totally obsolete, 1960’s vintage air force. Key combat elements
of the DPRK army are dug deep into the rocky hills just north of the DMZ, with thousands of heavy North
Korean guns facing south. In the event of war, the North claims it will destroy South Korea’s capitol,
Seoul, that is only 30km away and has 20 million residents.
US estimates of war in Korea, made a decade ago, suggest America
would incur 250,000 casualties in a war that would cost one million Korean deaths. That’s why the US has
shied away from direct attack on North Korea. Unlike Iraqis, Syrians, Libyans and Somalis, North Koreans
know how to fight back and are amply armed for a defensive war.
The US would certainly be tempted to use tactical nuclear weapons against North Korean troops
and guns deeply dug into the mountainous terrain. Without them, air power, America’s usual trump card, would
lose much of its destructive potential. No doubt, all North Korea would be ravaged by US air power, as it
was during the 1950’s Korean War. South Korea plans massive air, missile and commando attacks on North
Korean military HQ and against leader Kim Jung-un’s hideaway.
US war plans call for amphibious landings along North Korea’s long, vulnerable coastline. This
threat forces the North to deploy large numbers of regular army and militia troops on both coasts.
North Korea’s air force and little navy would be vaporized on the first day of hostilities. But
it is likely that the DPRK would be able to fire a score or more of medium-ranged missiles at Japan. If the
war goes nuclear, Japan looks almost certain to suffer nuclear attack, along with Guam. Tokyo and Osaka are
North Korean forces might be able to push south to Seoul, but likely no further in the face of
fierce attacks by US and South Korean air power operating from bases further south. The North’s powerful
commando force of some 100,000 troops would attack key South Korean targets, including its vital air bases
shared with the US. Such raids would be highly disruptive but not decisive unless the DPRK used chemical
and/or biological weapons to shut down South Korea’s air bases and its ports at Busan and Inchon.
The US and South Korea could certainly win such a war but it would be very bloody and
expensive. There would be the threat of Chinese military intervention if it appeared the US was about to
occupy North Korea. Russia is right next door.
Secretary Tillerson, please leave war threats to the generals and
start practicing some active diplomacy with the North. If ever a war was not needed, it’s

This is not Syria: Tens of
millions could die in Korean War II

POHANG – An array of heavy-duty,
sophisticated gear spread over the beaches here shows the incredible military might of the U.S. and South
Korea. Far offshore, way beyond the horizon, the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson leads a "strike force" of
Watching the display of U.S. strength on the beach in a wargame called Pacific Reach, one
realizes how easy it would be to decimate the North Koreans.
A U.S. Marine stands guard during the U.S.-South Korea joint Exercise Operation Pacific Reach in Pohang, South
Korea, on April 11. / Ahn Young-joon / AP
The purpose of this particular exercise is logistics ? to show the speed and agility with which
these forces can unload hundreds of thousands of tons of supplies anywhere on shore ? perfect for an attack
on the North. The South Koreans are in it too ? infinitely stronger than when the North Koreans rolled over
them in the summer of 1950.
None of this drama, however, appears to have had any impact on Kim Jong-Un as he intensifies
his own scare campaign against the U.S. and South Korea. If the U.S. wants to consider a preemptive strike
against his nuclear and missile facilities, his propaganda machine lets it be known, he’ll hit the U.S.
first with a nuclear warhead.
It’s hard to take such rhetoric seriously. Everyone knows it’s for dramatic effect, whether to
impress his own people or foreigners dumb enough to think North Korea’s nuclear program is really for
"defense." The point, however, is: might President Trump order a pre-emptive strike as he did against Syrian
President Bashar al-Assad’s murderous military machine?
Advocates of military force, impressed by what’s plain to see about U.S. military power, had
better not get their hopes up.
Sure, Trump could order an air strike on Assad as punishment for his use of deadly chemical
weapons on innocent civilians in a rebel-held town.
Similarly, a volley of cruise missiles, supplemented by air strikes, could take out the sites
from which Kim Jong-Un loves to order "tests" of his own missiles, including the long-range model with which
he threatens the U.S. More strikes might remove North Korea’s nuclear complex at Yongbyon from the map.
And then what? North Korea is not Syria. The Middle East is not the Korean Peninsula.
Thousands of American troops are not exposed to Assad’s war machine. Nor are millions of people
living and working in peace across a line 60 or so kilometers from Damascus.
No, the fact that the U.S. has enough sheer strength to wage war in Northeast Asia does
not mean that option should be on the table. The results of headstrong action, of attacking on gut instinct,
as some think Trump might do, would be unpredictable, to say the least.
The risks far outweigh the rewards. There’s no telling exactly
how North Korea would respond, or whether China and Russia would rush to Kim Jong-Un’s aid as they did for
his grandfather Kim Il-Sung, in the Korean War. For sure, however, millions would be in the line of fire if
the North Koreans deluged the South with artillery blasts and missiles - even if they haven’t figured out
how to "deliver" miniaturized nuclear bombs.
When the topic of a retaliatory strike came up during the 1994 nuclear crisis, Bill
Clinton, then in the White House, considered bombing North Korea’s nuclear complex. Kim Young-Sam, then
South Korea’s president, warned him 10 million Koreans could lose their lives in the ensuing
At the very least, the U.S needs to consult its Korean ally before giving a moment’s thought to
a preemptive strike. Would any South Korean president, liberal or conservative, say, sure, let’s do it, a
great "combined" exercise?
That’s not to say a preemptive strike might not bring a quick dividend by stopping the
North from launching missiles right away. After that immediate gain, however, holy hell could break out.
Nobody knows how many tens of millions might die.
The cruise missile strike in Syria should not serve as an example even if the sight of
American and Korean forces playing war games here with a panoply of awesome gear is impressive. No one knows
what magic formula or potion will resolve the Korean standoff, but one way not to resolve it is to open
Korean War II.Real war is not a war game.
There Is No Military Solution To
The North Korea Conundrum
"...the question of war on
the Korean peninsula is now “on the table,” as the national security wonks like to
say...It should be taken off the table,
Justin Raimondo Editorial Director, Antiwar.com
5:48 PM 04/14/2017
With North Korea launching ballistic missile tests with
disturbing regularity, and US officials openly talking about the possibility of a preemptive strike against the
Hermit Kingdom’s nuclear facilities, the question of war on the Korean peninsula is now “on the table,” as the
national security wonks like to say.
It should be taken off the table, pronto.
The reason is simple: a military confrontation with North Korean despot Kim Jong-un has a 100%
chance of ending in a nuclear conflagration. As retired Col. David Hunt, who served in Korea on the DMZ,
told Eric Bolling on Thursday, every war game simulating a war with North Korea has ended in a nuclear
conflict. For fifty years, the North Koreans have been preparing for a resumption of hostilities in a war
that never formally ended. Positioned in the heights just above the demilitarized zone is a massive array of
North Korean artillery pointed at Seoul, the South Korean capital, a city with 3 million inhabitants. Within
six minutes, that tremendous firepower would be unleashed, and the casualties would be massive.
Of course the South Koreans are fully aware of this, which is why they would never consent to a
US military strike. This is the one factor our talking heads — who blithely debate this “option” as if it
were just another foreign policy issue — always leave out. They can’ imagine that the South Koreans might
object to the obliteration of their country – or even that they might have a say in the matter.

The reason for the supposedly irrational behavior of the North Koreans isn’t hard to
understand. Every year we conduct joint military exercises a few miles from the North Korean border, and
this year they simulated a full-scale military assault. Our nuclear-capable B-1B bombers and F-22 stealth
fighter jets – the world’s most lethal military aircraft — flew alongside South Korean fighters in a “mock”
air raid on North Korean positions. The USS Vinson, an aircraft carrier, the USS Columbus, a nuclear
submarine capable of landing special forces and hitting offshore targets, were deployed off the North Korean
coast. Twenty-thousand US military personnel joined with over 300,000 South Korean troops to enact a dress
rehearsal for a war Pyongyang has been preparing for since the last one ended in a truce.
Now the US is openly talking about ending that truce, with President Trump tweeting that if the
Chinese don’t do something about Kim Jon-un the United States will act.
Trump thinks he can get the Chinese to rein in Pyongyang – after all, aren’t they allies? Well,
no, they aren’t. The last time Beijing had any influence in Pyongyang was in 1956, when the pro-Beijing
faction within the ruling Korean Workers Party acted in concert with a pro-Soviet faction to remove supreme
leader Kim Il Sung from power at a meeting of the Central Committee. The attempt failed, and the dissidents
were purged and later executed. The latest manifestation of a pro-Beijing faction within the leadership was
centered around Kim Jong-un’s late uncle, Jang Song-thaek, Pyongyang’s liaison with Beijing via “free trade
zones” set up in coordination with the Chinese. He was charged with treason and recently executed, shot to
death with an anti-aircraft gun: his family was also killed.
There is no military solution to the problem of North Korea. Nor
is leaving it to the Chinese going to work. There’s just one way to avoid war on the Korean peninsula, and
that is by encouraging the process of North-South reconciliation that was begun some 16 years ago with the
“Sunshine Policy.” That’s when South Korea’s then President Kim Dae-jung opened up talks with the North,
and, in spite of US opposition, his successor traveled to the North, and met with Kim Jong-il: thousands of
South Koreans followed suit, crossing over to visit long-lost relatives. Trade increased, but the thaw
didn’t last long. Nixed by the Bush administration, and the coming to power in South Korea of right-winger
Lee Myung Bak, the sunset of the “Sunshine Policy” was ensured.
Recent political developments in South Korea hold out some hope. The impeachment of President
Park Geung-hye, daughter of cold war military dictator Park Chung-hee, means that the liberal opposition
will very likely come to power. The leading candidate, Moon Jae-in of the Democratic party, opposes a
preemptive strike and has said “The safety of South Korea is as important as that of the United States”:
he’d reopen negotiations with Pyongyang.
The Korean people are intensely nationalistic: they resent any sort of foreign interference in
their affairs, which is why meddling by Beijing and Washington is widely resented. There is a way out of the
Korean conundrum – if only the US will get out of the way.
“If China is not going to solve North Korea, we
So thundered President Donald Trump last week. Unfortunately, neither China nor North Korea
appeared intimidated by this presidential bombast or Trump’s Tweets.
What would ‘we will’ actually entail? This clear threat makes us think seriously about
what a second Korean War would be like. Memory of the bloody, indecisive first Koran
War, 1950-53, which killed close to 3 million people, has faded. Few Americans have any idea how
ferocious a conventional second Korean War could be. They are used to seeing Uncle Sam beat up small, nearly
defenseless nations like Iraq, Libya or Syria that dare defy the Pax Americana.
The US could literally blow North Korea off the map using tactical nuclear weapons
based in Japan, South Korea and at sea with the 7th Fleet. Or delivered by B-52 and B-1 bombers and cruise
missiles. But this would cause clouds of lethal radiation and radioactive dust to
blanket Japan, South Korea and heavily industrialized northeast China, including the capital,
China would be expected to threaten retaliation against the
United States, Japan and South Korea to deter a nuclear war in next door Korea. At the same time, if heavily
attacked, a fight-to-the-end North Korea may fire off a number of nuclear-armed medium-range missiles at
Tokyo, Osaka, Okinawa and South Korea. These missiles are hidden in caves in the mountains on wheeled
transporters and hard to identify and knock out.
This is a huge risk. Such a nuclear exchange would expose about a
third of the world’s economy to nuclear contamination, not to mention spreading nuclear winter around the
A conventional US attack on North Korea would be far more difficult. The North is a small
nation of only 24.8 million. Its air and sea forces are obsolete and ineffective. They would be vaporized on
the first day of a war. But North Korea’s million-man army has been training and digging in for decades to
resist a US invasion. Pyongyang’s 88,000-man Special Forces are poised for suicide attacks on South Korea’s
political and military command and control and to cripple key US and South Korean air bases, notably Osan
North Korea may use chemical weapons such as VX and Sarin to knock out the US/South Korean and
Japanese airbases, military depots, ports and communications hubs. Missile attacks would be launched against
US bases in Guam and Okinawa.
Short of using nuclear weapons, the US would be faced with mounting a major invasion of
mountainous North Korea, something for which it is today unprepared. It took the US
six months to assemble a land force in Saudi Arabia just to attack feeble Iraq. Taking on the tough North
Korean army and militia in their mountain redoubts will prove a daunting challenge.
US analysts have in the past estimated a US invasion of North Korea would cost some
250,000 American casualties and at least $10 billion, though I believe such a war would cost four times that
much today. The Army, Air Force and Marines would have to mobilize reserves to wage a war in Korea. Already
overstretched US forces would have to be withdrawn from Europe and the Mideast. Military conscription might
have to be re-introduced.
US war planners believe that an attempt to assassinate or isolate North Korean leader Kim
Jung-un – known in the military as ‘decapitation’- would cause the North Korean armed forces to scatter and
give up. I don’t think so.
My visits to South and North Korea have shown me that soldiers of both nations are amazingly
tough, patriotic and ready to fight. I’ve also been under the Demilitarized Zone in some of the warren of
secret tunnels built by North Korea under South Korean fortifications. Hundreds of North Korean long-range
170mm guns and rocket batteries are buried into the hills facing the DMZ, all within range of the northern
half of South Korea’s capital, Seoul.
North Korea is unlikely to be a pushover in a war. Even after US/South Korean forces
occupy Pyongyang, the North has prepared for a long guerilla war in the mountains that could last for
decades. They have been practicing for 30 years. Chaos in North Korea will invite
Chinese military intervention, but not necessarily to the advantage of the US and its
Is Commander-in-Chief Trump, who somehow managed to avoid
military service during the Vietnam War, really ready to launch a big war in Asia? Most Americans still
can’t locate Korea on a map. Will Congress tax every American taxpayer $20,000 to pay for a new Korean war?
Will Russia sit by quietly while the US blows apart North Korea? Does
anyone in the White House know that North Korea borders on Russia and is less than 200km from the key
Russian port of Vladivostok?
All this craziness would be ended if the US signed a peace treaty with North Korea ending the
first Korean War and opened up diplomatic and commercial relations. No need for war or missile
threats. North Korea is a horrid, brutal regime. But so is Egypt, whose tin pot dictator was wined and dined
by Trump last week.
But pounding the rostrum with your shoe is always much more fun than boring peace talks.
Given that the pretext for attacking Syria is
falling apart before the public's eyes [...at least it was back in 2013], why is the US preparing to
wage war on that country? Who benefits from the ongoing destabilization of Assad's government? What will the
Middle East look like if the Sunnis take over Syria? What is Israel's role in this? What do Turkey, Qatar and
Saudi Arabia have to gain from a war in Syria? And what does Bandar Bush have to do with all of this? Join us
today on The Corbett Report as we discuss these and other pressing issues as the world stands on the brink of
yet another US-led Middle Eastern military adventure.
Months after the events took place, Pulitzer prize winning journalists and others are

it. This is the GRTV Backgrounder on Global Research TV.

In the 1960’s an anti-war movement emerged that altered the course of history. This movement
didn’t take place on college campuses, but in barracks and on aircraft carriers. It flourished in army
stockades, navy brigs and in the dingy towns that surround military bases. It penetrated elite military
colleges like West Point. And it spread throughout the battlefields of Vietnam. It was a movement no one
expected, least of all those in it. Hundreds went to prison and thousands into exile. And by 1971 it had, in
the words of one colonel, infested the entire armed services. Yet today few people know about the GI movement
against the war in Vietnam. http://www.sirnosir.com/the_film/synopsis.html
Ever since its inception there have been those who have
warned that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, far from offering a simple "collective security" pact to
ensure the integrity of its member nations' borders, would in fact be used as an offensive tool of imperial
adventurism and conquest. Since the NATO-led Kosovo bombing campaign of 1999 at the very least, those fears
have appeared more and more justified.
Since that time, NATO has continued to take a lead role in more and more overtly
offensive campaigns of aggression in theatre after theatre. By now it is commonly understood to be an extension
of the Pentagon itself, a convenient international military instrument for Washington to wield whenever the
pretense of an international consensus cannot be achieved at the UN Security
Council. -- James Corbett
NATO is the first attempt in history to establish an aggressive
global military formation, one which currently includes a third of the nations of the world either as members
or partners, has members and partners on five continents and has conducted active operations on four, with the
potential to expand its reach into the remaining two where it has not yet officially intruded
itself...As NATO continues to expand across the
globe through a series of partnerships, initiatives and dialogues, what was once a collective security
agreement is increasingly becoming a global military strike force capable of bombarding, invading and
occupying countries anywhere in the world.
The Crime of Aggression is the most serious crime a nation can commit. The
condemnation of this crime is rooted in both Natural and Biblical Law. The preparation for committing this

fact, I am an information warrior and a perception manager.”
Following the First Gulf War, Rendon was paid $23 million by the CIA to
create anti-Saddam propaganda. Following 9/11, he was charged with public relations for the
U.S. bombing of Afghanistan.

Bloods are the “good guys” and the Crips the “bad guys” or vice versa; they are both criminal
networks that use brutality and violence to enforce their control over given areas and to
Similarly, if we understand that rivalries between various international
organizations (to the extent that they exist at all) are really only battles between gangsters
for control over the global turf, we can more clearly understand that it is not a question of
choosing sides in the struggle, but opposing the very ideologies of centralized, hierarchical
control that make these institutions possible." - James Corbett,

John Stauber (PR Watch): You see a news show. You watch 60 Minutes or a Fox program, or
whatever it is. You tend to give more credibility to what you’re told is journalism. If an
advertisement comes on hopefully you tend to be more skeptical of that because obviously,
somebody put an awful lot of money into crafting this slick TV ad and airing it.
But what you probably never suspect is that that news story you just watched
was also crafted by a company, given to the TV station or network with the understanding that
they would put their own logos on it, identify it as real journalism, and air it.
Mikela Jay: Colonel Sam Gardiner would eventually chart 50 false news stories
created and leaked by the Bush White House propaganda apparatus prior to and during the assault
Foremost amongst these were the lies that led to the war in the first
place. “It was not bad intelligence that led to the invasion”, concludes Gardiner.
“It was an orchestrated effort that began before the war” and
was “meticulously planned” to manipulate the public.
John Stauber: In 2002, when the Bush administration was conducting its
massive public relations campaign to sell the war out of Donald Rumsfeld’s office in the
Pentagon, there was something now referred to as the Pentagon pundits program where literally
scores of former high-ranking military generals and admirals and colonels were getting their
talking points for their appearances on TV news shows directly from the Pentagon.
They would literally go to the Pentagon, be on phone conferences with the
Pentagon, travel with the Pentagon, and then go on TV as supposedly independent sources.
Although most of them were actually being paid in the private sector – because these were
retired military officials – by defense contractors. And many of them were actually registered
lobbyists for military contractors.
So there’s a bit of a conflict-of-interest right away when your bread and
butter is based on being able to sell armaments and bombs and missiles and you’re supposed to
be just a patriotic ex-general giving an honest opinion to what’s going on.
And even though that’s illegal, there’s no way to really stop it. And the most
powerful medium through which it occurred refuses to even report on the scandal. You’ve got
just a massive problem, and that’s where we’re at.

Pentagon Spending Billions on PR to Sway World
Published on Feb 11, 2009
As it fights two wars, the Pentagon is steadily and dramatically increasing the
money it spends to win what it calls "the human terrain" of world public opinion. In the
process, it is raising concerns of spreading propaganda at home in violation of federal
Engineering in the 20th Century
Human Resources: Social
Engineering in the 20th Century explores the rise of mechanistic philosophy and the
exploitation of human beings under modern hierarchical systems. Topics covered include
behaviorism, scientific management, work-place democracy, schooling, frustration-aggression
hypothesis and human experimentation.
"Essentially", says Scott, "this film is about the rise of mechanistic

PROPAGANDA - The Public Mind In The Making:
"In almost every act of our lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our
ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons [...] who understand the mental
processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires that control the public mind, who
harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world." p. 37–38
"Propaganda is the executive arm of the invisible government." p. 48
"The new profession of public relations has grown up because of the increasing complexity
of modern life and the consequent necessity for making the actions of one part of the public understandable to
other sectors of the public. It is due, too, to the increasing dependence of organized power of all sorts upon
public opinion. Governments, whether they are monarchical, constitutional, democratic or communist, depend upon
acquiescent public opinion for the success of their efforts and, in fact, government is government only by
virtue of public acquiescence. Industries, public utilities, educational movements, indeed all groups
representing any concept or product, whether they are majority or minority ideas, succeed only because of
approving public opinion. Public opinion is the unacknowledged partner in all broad efforts. The public
relations counsel, then, is the agent who, working with modern media of communications and the group formations
of society, brings an idea to the consciousness of the public." p. 63
"If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, is it not possible to control and regiment
the masses according to our will without their knowing it?" Page 71 (1928 edition?)
"If you can influence the leaders, either with or without their conscious cooperation, you
automatically influence the group which they sway. But men do not need to be actually gathered together in a
public meeting or in a street riot, to be subject to the influences of mass psychology. Because man is by
nature gregarious he feels himself to be member of a herd, even when he is alone in his room with the curtains
drawn. His mind retains the patterns which have been stamped on it by the group influences."
Page 73 (1928 edition)
"But when the example of the leader is not at hand and the herd must think for itself, it
does so by means of clichés, pat words or images which stand for a whole group of ideas or experiences. Not
many years ago, it was only necessary to tag a political candidate with the word interests to stampede millions
of people into voting against him, because anything associated with "the interests" seemed necessary corrupt.
Recently the word Bolshevik has performed a similar service for persons who wished to frighten the public away
from a line of action. By playing upon a old cliché, or manipulating a new one, the propagandist can sometimes
swing a whole mass group emotions." Page 74
"No serious sociologist any longer believes that the voice of the people expresses any
divine or specially wise and lofty idea. The voice of the people expresses the mind of the people, and that
mind is made up for it by the group leaders in whom it believes and by those persons who understand the
manipulation of public opinion. It is composed of inherited prejudices and symbols and clichés and verbal
formulas supplied to them by the leaders."

be a military and law enforcement infrastructure, and those are merging.”
While it may rate up there with the best in gaming, America's Army is not an exercise
in largesse towards the gaming community. It's essentially a propaganda tool funded to the tune of more than
$US10 million ($A11.1 million) of US taxpayers' money designed to attract young people to military
The US Army spends an estimated $US1.5 million annually to support the game, a drop in the $US583
million ocean of the army's recruitment advertising budget last year. But the modest expense is reaping big
dividends with 28 per cent of players clicking through to the US Army's recruitment site and about 40 per cent
of new US Army recruits in 2005 having played the game before signing up.
