General Suleimani: US, ISIL Destined to Failure

The redoubtable commander of IRGC Quds forces has predicted a debacle for conspirators of bloody terrorist acts in Syria and Iraq, Mehr news agency reported.

Major. Gen. Qassem Suleimani, who was talking to reporters on the sidelines of a meeting held for the memory of IRGC Ground Forces fallen commanders, said resolvedly that “any movement, either small- or large-scale, such as US military campaign or ISIL terrorist actions are predestined to failure, since they lack a crucial element as truth; anything with origins other than truth would not produce any definite outcome, neither would it embrace triumph in the end.”

Suleimani believed that any campaign against Islam and Iran would fail since they had no truth of themselves. “The real factor of success of Islamic Republic of Iran and Islam is this internal truth,” the IRGC commander asserted.

Suleimani predicted a failure as the ultimate destination of what he emphasized to be ‘bloody terrorism in Syria and Iraq,’ for the forces behind such campaigns in the region. “What is important is the end of events; you should wait and see the end; terrorists had not ever come victorious with enduring impact in the history, since they relied upon strategies devoid of truth,” he told reporters.

Sergueï Lavrov, Ministère russe des Affaires étrangères

Discours du ministre des Affaires étrangères de la Fédération de Russie Sergueï Lavrov à la 69ième session de l’Assemblée générale des Nations Unies, à New York, le 27 septembre 2014

Monsieur le Président,

Mesdames et Messieurs,

Aujourd’hui apparaît de plus en plus clairement la contradiction entre d’une part, la nécessité d’actions collectives de partenariat dans l’intérêt de l’élaboration de réponses appropriées aux défis communs et, d’autre part, le désir pour un certain nombre de pays de dominer, de restaurer la mentalité archaïque de la confrontation des blocs s’appuyant sur une discipline de caserne et sur une logique préjudiciable : « nous — les autres ». L’alliance occidentale avec, en tête, les États-Unis, qui se posent comme défenseurs de la démocratie, de la primauté de la loi et des droits de l’homme dans des pays tiers, agit directement à l’inverse sur la scène internationale, en rejetant le principe démocratique de l’égalité souveraine des États, tel que fixé par la Charte des Nations Unies, et en essayant de décider pour tout le monde ce qui est bien et ce qui est mal.

Washington a proclamé ouvertement son droit d’utiliser la force militaire de façon unilatérale et n’importe où pour la défense de ses propres intérêts. L’intervention militaire est devenue la norme, même en dépit du fait que toutes les opérations de force menées par les États-Unis au cours de ces dernières années se sont terminées de façon piteuse.

De rudes coups ont été portés à la stabilité internationale : bombardement de la Yougoslavie par l’OTAN, intervention en Irak, attaque de la Libye, échec en Afghanistan. Ce n’est que grâce à des efforts diplomatiques intenses que l’agression contre la Syrie en 2013 n’a pas eu lieu. On ne peut s’empêcher de penser que les diverses « révolutions de couleur » et autres projets visant le remplacement des régimes indésirables n’ont pour but que de provoquer le chaos et l’instabilité.

Aujourd’hui, l’Ukraine est devenue la victime de cette politique. La situation révèle la persistance de défauts profonds, systémiques dans l’architecture existante de la zone euro-atlantique. L’Occident a mis le cap vers une « structuration verticale de l’Humanité » en fonction de ses propres standards, qui sont loin d’être inoffensifs. En proclamant leur victoire dans la « guerre froide » et l’avènement de la prétendue « fin de l’Histoire », les États-Unis et l’Union européenne ont entrepris d’élargir leur espace géopolitique sans prendre en compte l’équilibre des intérêts légitimes de tous les peuples d’Europe. Nos partenaires occidentaux n’ont pas entendu nos avertissements répétés sur l’inacceptabilité de la violation des principes de la Charte des Nations Unies et de l’Acte final d’Helsinki, ils se sont dérobés à chaque occasion de faire en commun un travail sérieux en vue de créer un espace unique de sécurité égal et indivisible et de coopération de l’Atlantique au Pacifique. La proposition russe d’étudier un traité de sécurité européenne a été rejetée. On nous a carrément déclaré que des garanties juridiquement contraignantes en matière de sécurité ne peuvent être obtenues que par les membres de l’Alliance atlantique, qui entre-temps a continué à se déplacer vers l’Est malgré les promesses du contraire données précédemment. Le passage instantané de l’OTAN à une rhétorique hostile, à la réduction de la coopération avec la Russie même au détriment des intérêts propres des pays occidentaux, à l’intensification supplémentaire de l’infrastructure militaire aux frontières russes a mis en évidence l’incapacité de l’alliance à changer son code génétique mis en place à l’époque de la « guerre froide ».

Someone’s Already Fighting ISIS: The Syrian Arab Army

SAA-image-300x199

 

By Tony Cartalucci, for ActivistPost

Since 2011, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has waged a relentless war within Syrian territory against what it has said from the very beginning was an invasion of heavily armed, foreign-backed sectarian extremists. In retrospect, the transparently ludicrous nature of articles like the Guardian’s “Syria’s rebels unite to oust Assad and push for democracy” is self-evident. The article would lay out Syria’s claims side by side with the West’s narrative by stating:

In one of the fiercest clashes of the insurrection, Syrian troops finally took control of the town of Rastan after five days of intense fighting with army defectors who sided with protesters. Syrian authorities said they were fighting armed terrorist gangs.

In retrospect, and upon examining the obvious lay of Syria’s battlefields today, it is clear Syrian authorities were right.

Shortly after NATO carried out successful “regime change” in Libya in 2011 under the false pretext of a “humanitarian intervention,” sectarian-driven mercenaries it armed, funded, and provided air cover for in Libya began steadily streaming into Syria via its northern border with NATO-member Turkey.

Terrorists from the US State Department designated terrorist organization, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) officially made contact with terrorists fighting in Syria to offer them weapons, cash, training, and fighters. The London Telegraph would report in their article, “Leading Libyan Islamist met Free Syrian Army opposition group,” that:

The meetings came as a sign of a growing ties between Libya’s fledgling government and the Syrian opposition. The Daily Telegraph on Saturday revealed that the new Libyan authorities had offered money and weapons to the growing insurgency against Bashar al-Assad.

Mr Belhaj also discussed sending Libyan fighters to train troops, the source said.

 

Indeed, at the highest levels, even as far back as 2011-2012, the so-called “moderate rebels” were entwined with Al Qaeda, vindicating the Syrian government’s statements regarding its struggle against foreign-backed terrorism, not a “pro-democracy uprising.”

Today, the West has expunged all rhetoric regarding “pro-democracy,” with sectarian extremism clearly driving militancy across both sides of Syria’s borders with Lebanon and Iraq. Instead, the West has been resigned to attempts in differentiating between groups like Al Qaeda’s al Nusra franchise and its Islamic State (ISIS) counterparts – claiming the latter must be addressed more urgently, even at the cost of cooperating with the former – yet another US State Department designated terrorist organization

Syria’s Long War 

And while the fierce fighting in Syria may have began in 2011, the war on foreign-backed sectarian extremism began a generation ago. From 1976 to 1982, Syrian President Bashar al Assad’s father, Hafez al-Assad, waged war on the heavily militarized Muslim Brotherhood. Upon breaking the back of the organization in Syria, it fled and was later reconstituted by the United States and Saudi Arabia into what would become Al Qaeda in the mountains of Afghanistan to fight the Soviet Union.

Russia Wants Regular, Transparent Reports on MH17 Crash Probe

image

Parts of wreckage are seen at the site where the downed Malaysian Boeing 777 flight MH17 crashed

MOSCOW, August 23 (RIA Novosti) – Moscow wants the investigation into the crash of a Malaysian Boeing 777 to be as most transparent as possible, and insists on regular provision if prove reports in accordance with the UN Security Council resolution, a diplomatic source told RIA Novosti.

“Investigation into the reasons of the catastrophe should be carried out under international control, should be all-encompassing and transparent for the wide international audience and mass media,” the source said. “We will keep pressing for it, demanding the implementation of the UNSC resolution 2166 which stipulates monthly reports about the course of the investigation.”

Resolution 2166 adopted by the UN Security Council in July calls for a thorough and impartial investigation into the MH17 tragedy and requires the secretary-general to provide the Security Council with investigation progress reports.

The source stressed that the majority of Western media “seem to have been ordered to avoid the investigation issue for about two weeks.”

“US official representatives who rushed to accuse Russia and Donetsk self-defense forces in the first hours following the tragedy, also maintain silence. America’s allies, particularly the British and the Australian, who were also among the first accusers, stick to the same policy. The international community has not yet seen the promised “incontestable evidence.” The explanation is that the truth could be inconvenient to Washington, London and Canberra,” the source told RIA Novosti.

The source added that Kiev’s official position is also telling.

“As the curtain of allegations is clearing, the specialists have more and more questions over the actions of the Ukrainian authorities and military toward the Boeing. Kiev still has not made public the recordings of the talks between air traffic control and the crew, which would allow to understand why the plane was in the combat area,” the diplomatic source said.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down over eastern Ukraine on July 17 en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, killing all 298 people on board, including 193 Dutch nationals, 43 Malaysians and 27 Australians.

Classified Information on Malaysia Airlines MH370 Case Stolen

The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200 flight MH370 traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing vanished on March 8 with 239 people on board, of which there were 227 passengers and 12 crew members.

RIA NOVOSTI

MOSCOW, August 20 (RIA Novosti) – Classified information from the computers of officials involved in the investigation into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines MH370 has been stolen, The Star Online reported Wednesday.

The computers of the high-ranking officials are said to have been hacked and the stolen information was allegedly being sent to a computer in China before the Malaysian Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry blocked the transmissions, the website reported.

[EDITOR'S NOTE: The people that hacked into these computers could well have it done as it appears to originate from China.]

The national cyber security specialist agency CyberSecurity Malaysia said that the malware that led to the information leak was sent to the officials via email on March 9, one day after the aircraft disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, according to The Star Online.

According to the security agency’s estimates, about 30 computers were infected by the malware. The agency is said to be working with Interpol on the incident at the moment. CyberSecurity Malaysia suspects that the motivation for the attack was the accusations of the Malaysian government made by some people of concealing crucial information about the investigation.

The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200 flight MH370 traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing vanished on March 8 with 239 people on board, of which there were 227 passengers and 12 crew members. On March 24, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said that, according to the satellite data [provided by British Firm Inmarsat, emphasised] , MH370 crashed in the southern part of the Indian Ocean.

TRUTH about the desecreation of Yugoslavia by US-ZIONIST Empire

Like Libya it was a Great Country with a modern economy, high standard of living, a mix of modern socialism together with free Enterprise for the people. But Most important of all, it was a Real independent Country.
One wonders why it was a Dark point on the NWO-US-Zionist Empire Agenda…

“U.S. Knew About 9/11 Warning, Staged Egypt Revolution”: Ex Egypt Interior Minister

image

Ex Egypt Interior Minister Habib Al-Adly

By Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost

Over the weekend, the former Egyptian Interior Minister under Hosni Mubarak, Habib El-Adly, gave a speech at his own retrial in Cairo, Egypt. Among a number of generic statements, El-Adly made at least two bombshell claims during his testimony that have received little to no coverage in the Western press.

One of these claims was that the United States was behind the 2011 Egyptian revolution which overthrew Hosni Mubarak. The other, however, was that the Egyptian intelligence agencies and Interior Ministry received information regarding a developing terrorist operation against the United States in September, 2001 and that the Egyptians warned the United States twice ahead of time. According to El-Adly, these warnings were completely ignored.

NOTE: The translation provided below is a rough translation of the statements, not a professional one.

In his televised testimony, El-Adly stated,

In May 2001, we received information that a very huge terrorist attack will happen in the USA. How? The source of the information was inside the lair of Al-Qaeda. And we verified it, that there were preparations for the attack.

I talked to the President (Mubarak) and I told him that I have information that a huge terrorist attack will happen in the USA, and I asked him if we should tell them [the Americans]. He said “OK.”

We contacted the CIA and FBI and told them about the information, they said “Thanks.”

On August of the same year we received the information that the (operation) entered its course of implementation (is entering its final steps).
An operation like this takes time, preparations and arrangements, etc.

This conversation was recorded between us and the source. I called the President and told him the information is confirmed, “Should we tell them?” He said “Tell them.” We called the people in the USA and told them that the operation entered the course of implementation. They said “OK” and “Thanks.”
Then the attack on the WTC happened. This was the operation. Do you see how cooperative we were?!?! This is why I am furious and enraged. I cooperated with them, and in return they hit my organization and destroyed (ruined) the country (Egypt)!!!

El-Adly then continued discussing how, according to him, in 2002, Mubarak questioned President Bush about the fact that the United States was warned about the impending attack but failed to act. El-Adly stated,

President Mubarak traveled to America in 2002. When there, he told President Bush, “We told you about this attack and you didn’t pay attention.” He [Bush]said “What attack?” And How?
Bush denied that they heard about that and Mubarak insisted that they did. Mubarak called me to confirm that we informed them about the information. He asked me who did I tell? I said “The CIA people.” He said “Ok” and told Bush. It seems the CIA people told Bush that they didn’t receive any news, and Mubarak told him “no, we informed you this and that.” Then they said “Oh, yes it happened but it was only told verbally.”
What Verbally?! It seems as if they wanted to receive some written memo “we received the news blah blah blah that blah blah blah would happen.”

‘US ‘proof’ so unprofessional – social media propaganda’ – Frmr WSJ Editor

28 juil. 2014 – The US State Department has released satellite images via email which it says act as “evidence” that Russia is firing rockets at Ukrainian troops across the border.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: Actually these are just images of the country with military installations inside Ukraine. Some arrows starting from Russia and getting into Ukraine have been drawn in red. This PROVES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ! Furthermore, the images were released to the medias on Sunday morning at 08:45 AM EDT as a perfect operation for social media propaganda but certainly not for a real information to the American Public. No press conference, No officials presenting the images. A complete disappearance of the American White House, or Government. They HAVE NO PROOF, NOTHING TO SHOW TO THE WORLD, THIS IS KINDERGARDEN PLAY.]

Hacked Email from U.S. Army Attache in Ukraine – For False Flags to occur so U.S. can take military action against Russia

A CNBC story jogged my memory about hacked emails from March of this year.  The emails were from a Jason Gresh (U.S. attache at Kiev Embassy)  to an Igor Protsyk, General in the Ukraine Military.  The emails are real.

By Sherrie QuestionningAll

The CNBC story is about Russia and their ‘propaganda’ machine saying the CIA was behind the downing of MH17.

Here are all the details:

Ihor,

Events are moving rapidly in Crimea. Our friends in Washington expect more decisive actions from your network.
I think it’s time to implement the plan we discussed lately. Your job is to cause some problems to the transport hubs in the south-east in order to frame-up the neighbor.
It will create favorable conditions for Pentagon and the Company to act.
Do not waste time, my friend.

Respectfully,

US Sat Shows Kiev Killers Shooting Down MH17 – Whistleblower

What Did US Spy Satellites See in Ukraine?

Exclusive: The U.S. media’s Ukraine bias has been obvious, siding with the Kiev regime and bashing ethnic Russian rebels and Russia’s President Putin. But now – with the scramble to blame Putin for the Malaysia Airlines shoot-down – the shoddy journalism has grown truly dangerous, says Robert Parry.

By Robert Parry, consortiumnews.com

In the heat of the U.S. media’s latest war hysteria – rushing to pin blame for the crash of a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet on Russia’s President Vladimir Putin – there is the same absence of professional skepticism that has marked similar stampedes on Iraq, Syria and elsewhere – with key questions not being asked or answered.

The dog-not-barking question on the catastrophe over Ukraine is: what did the U.S. surveillance satellite imagery show? It’s hard to believe that – with the attention that U.S. intelligence has concentrated on eastern Ukraine for the past half year that the alleged trucking of several large Buk anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia to Ukraine and then back to Russia didn’t show up somewhere.

Russian-made Buk anti-missile battery.

Yes, there are limitations to what U.S. spy satellites can see. But the Buk missiles are about 16 feet long and they are usually mounted on trucks or tanks. Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 also went down during the afternoon, not at night, meaning the missile battery was not concealed by darkness.

So why hasn’t this question of U.S. spy-in-the-sky photos – and what they reveal – been pressed by the major U.S. news media? How can the Washington Post run front-page stories, such as the one on Sunday with the definitive title “U.S. official: Russia gave systems,” without demanding from these U.S. officials details about what the U.S. satellite images disclose?

Instead, the Post’s Michael Birnbaum and Karen DeYoung wrote from Kiev: “The United States has confirmed that Russia supplied sophisticated missile launchers to separatists in eastern Ukraine and that attempts were made to move them back across the Russian border after the Thursday shoot-down of a Malaysian jetliner, a U.S. official said Saturday.

“‘We do believe they were trying to move back into Russia at least three Buk [missile launch] systems,’ the official said. U.S. intelligence was ‘starting to get indications … a little more than a week ago’ that the Russian launchers had been moved into Ukraine, said the official” whose identity was withheld by the Post so the official would discuss intelligence matters.

But catch the curious vagueness of the official’s wording: “we do believe”; “starting to get indications.” Are we supposed to believe – and perhaps more relevant, do the Washington Post writers actually believe – that the U.S. government with the world’s premier intelligence services can’t track three lumbering trucks each carrying large mid-range missiles?

What I’ve been told by one source, who has provided accurate information on similar matters in the past, is that U.S. intelligence agencies do have detailed satellite images of the likely missile battery that launched the fateful missile, but the battery appears to have been under the control of Ukrainian government troops dressed in what look like Ukrainian uniforms.

The source said CIA analysts were still not ruling out the possibility that the troops were actually eastern Ukrainian rebels in similar uniforms but the initial assessment was that the troops were Ukrainian soldiers. There also was the suggestion that the soldiers involved were undisciplined and possibly drunk, since the imagery showed what looked like beer bottles scattered around the site, the source said.
