1,000 British elite troops deployed to Libyan oil fields to ‘halt the advance of ISIS’

Another of those news stories which gives us chance to say “We told you so.”

ISIS guerillas in Libya (Image source: NYT)
Leaders of the FUKUS axis (France, UK, USA) which launched an allegedly humanitarian bombing campaign on the regime of Libyan dictator Col. Muammar (Mad Dog) Gadaffi which removed the secular regime from office and the crazy dictator from the human race, but also succeeded in turning Libya from the most prosperous and most civilized nation in Africa into a failed state with three warring factions claiming to be the legitimate government, were ill advised by ‘experts’ as stupid and ignorant as themselves.
What makes western leaders and their armies of
arse lickersspecial asdvisers even worse than stupid is they do not learn from mistakes, they repeated the Libya regime change cock up in Syria and Ukraine but failed to pull off the same trick in Egypt, when after President Mubarak has been deposed by Islamic extremists, the military reasserted themselves, disposed of the Muslim Brotherhood regime and returned to business as usual.
And now we learn things are back to square one in Libya.
One thousand troops from British Special Forces regiments have been deployed in Libya to wrest back control of more than a dozen oil fields overrun by Islamic State guerillas according to news agency reports.

In a ground operation that should have accompanied the bombing campaign of four years ago, approximately 6,000 European and US soldiers, including the British contingent  will be involved in a number of operations aimed at repelling  the advance of jihadist terrorists.

The operation will be led by Italian forces and supported mainly by Britain and France. Italy is the former colonial power in the north African state. UK Special Forces, including military close observation experts from the Special Reconnaissance Regiment, are spearheading a major coalition offensive against the jihadist group, according to Ministry of Defence press releases.

IS  now controls several oil fields in Libya and will be hoping to use the stolen oil laundering system established with the family of Turkish president Erdogan to raise funds from illegal oil trades. The Islamist group is also eager to win more control over the country, as the land could provide them with millions of dollars to fund terror attacks.

The terrorist network is now targeting the Marsa al Brega oil refinery, the biggest in North Africa.
If jihadists successfully capture the oil refinery, located between Sirte and Benghazi tn the east of the heavily populated coastal strip, they would gain full control of the country’s oil.

Fear and Panic: EU Defence Budgets Boom Amid ‘Russian Threat’ Paranoia
Sssssh. Do you hear that? The sound of two horses, their firey hooves drumming on the ground, eyes glowing like embers as at full gallop they draw the chariot of Mars, the war god. Their names are Phobos and Deimos, Fear and Panic. Paranoia over a supposed “Russian threat” and the fear of terrorism following the Paris attacks are causing panic among NATO and EU nations, causing governments to vastly increase their defense budgets:

Is It Lack Of Diversity That Makes Lefties Stupid?

Quite a while ago now I wrote a post titled “Is It Lack Of Diversity That Drives Left wing Hate?” It contained these lines:

There’s an old joke;
Q: “Why do teenagers only listen to other teenagers?” A: “Because they’re stupid.”
Q: “Why are teenagers stupid?” A: Because they only listen to other teenagers.”

Substitute leftie, liberal, radical or progressive for teenager and that just about sums up the political ‘left’. There is no diversity of opinion, unorthodox ideas are frowned on and deviation from the dogma (going off message) is an unforgivble sin. Thus they only ever talk to like minded people and their prejudices become reinforced.

a gathering of lefties celebrate their diverityA gathering of lefties celebrate their diversity (source)

Just recently the resident leftie pains in the arse have been irritating me a bit as I have tried to explore the news issues being most blatantly misrepresented in propaganda published by government / mainstream media. I wouldn’t mind so much but all these people can offer by way of rhetoric is screams of “conspiracy theorist” (I don’t find spurious links to form hasty conclusions, instead like a level headed and open minded commentator I consider all angles) and irrational name calling (right wing extremist might be an insult in the eyes of our Khymer Rouge fellow traveller colleagues, who are all scum sucking spawn of a pox whore’s scab lice (now that’s a insult), but anyone who thinks it describes my views is just politically illiterate).

The other illustration of rhetorical incompetence from such people is to try claiming that I and similar ‘nut jobs’ are among a very small lunatic fringe who doubt the propaganda. The most recent issue this kind of dispute has centred on is the question of “Who Shot Down flight MH17?

As I have already posted links to New Straits Times of Malaysia (that country’s leading newspaper) Times of India (that counry’s leading newspaper) and many other reliable sources only to have the lefties respond by repeating American propaganda lies that were discredited weeks ago, (repeat the lie often enough and it will become true – Josef Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda chief) I now bring you an editorial from Asia Times Online which poses some interesting questions about Flight MH17 and the other Malaysia Airlines disaster, Flight MH370 and shows once again that opinion outside the Obamasphere is far more sceptical of FUKUS axis propaganda than the new Nazis:

Vanishing point …
By Pepe Escobar

First, passenger airliner MH370 vanished from Planet Earth. Then MH370 vanished from the news cycle. First, MH17 was shot down by “Putin’s missile” – as Planet Earth was told. Then MH17 vanished from the news cycle.

Where’s Baudrillard when we need him? Had he been alive, the dervish of simulacra would have already deconstructed these two Malaysian planes as mirror images; from absolute vanishing to maximum exposure, then vanished again. They might as well have been abducted – and shot – by aliens. Now you seem them, now you don’t.

Black boxes, data recorders – everything MH17 is now floating in a black void. The British are taking forever to analyze the data – and if they have already done so, they are not talking. It’s as if they were singing, I see a black box / and I want it painted black … void.

The Pentagon, with 20-20 vision over Ukraine, knows what happened. Russian intelligence not only knows what happened but offered a tantalizing glimpse of it in an official presentation, dismissed by the “West”. The best technical analyses point not to “Putin’s missile” – a BUK – but to a combination of R-60 air-to-air missile and the auto-cannon of an Su-25.

A reader led me to this fair assessment by former USAF and Boeing engineer Raymond Blohm: “With proper vectoring, a Su-25 need not be quite as fast as a Boeing 777 in cruise. It just has to get to a missile-firing position. Since the 777 was not maneuvering, it would be simple to pre-calculate when to get in a certain spot in the sky below the 777. From there, it’s the missile that has the speed and altitude capability to hit the 777. (The R-60 is a very capable missile.) After the missile takes out an engine, both the 777’s max speed and its max altitude are well within the Su-25 fighter’s speed & altitude capabilities. Then, the Su-25 can show off its cannon power.”

Continue reading this article at Asia Times Online and if any sub-50 IQ bell end shows up to tell us we should not believe anything I read if it was not first published in US, UK, or European propaganda, remember all my sources have produced evidence for their opinions, so far the propaganda merchants have not produced a single shred of evidence in support of their loonytoons narrative.

Unless like the leftie clowns you believe that “Our side are nicer people than them so you can believe us,” is evidence.

FUKUS axis imposes sanctions, Russian Oligarchs Shrug

builders chaos
Got the builders in (source)

This may seem like another lazy post as most of it is lifted from finanial news sheets but we have builders in and having been living in what could easily pass for a comfortable suburban home in Gaza, Syria or Iraq all week we are spending the weekend perched on piles of boxes, new kitchen units, all the stuff that accumulates over a forty year marriage and a collection of low value builders tools.

It’s a situation that does not encourage creativity. I was amused by this however …

Russian Oligarchs Dump Visa, Switch To Chinese Credit Card

Russian Oligarchs (source)

You have probably read a torrent of arse dribble in mainstream media about “Russia is becoming increasingly isolated” It’s a meme that political leaders in the FUKUS axis, EU and NATO would like us to believe.

It isn’t quite the whole story however.

As Russia continues to cut de-dollarization deals and trade agreements with its BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) allies and Iran while continuing with retaliatory actions against the US and Europe, (If you remember, Obama cancelled the bus passes of retired Russian gangsters living in Florida,) it appears the ‘sanctioned’ friends of Putin are taking matters into their own hands.

Billionaire oligarch Gennady Timchenko, among the first to be hit by travel bans and asset freezes by the US, has decided to tear up his Visa and Mastercard, shifting all his credit cards to China’s UnionPay, noting that in some ways it is more secure than Visa because at least the American security agencies can’t track his transactions.

The Western meme goes something like this…

“Russia risks becoming a pariah state if it does not behave properly,” U.K. Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said on Sky news this week.

However, after various deals with BRICS and Middle East nations, it appears Russia can find plenty of ‘friends’.

And now the the Russian government and the oligarchs and de-dollarizing… (via ITAR-TASS and Google Translate)

Russian businessman Gennady Timchenko (said) because of the U.S. sanctions imposed against him in March 2014 after the annexation of the Crimea to the Russian Federation, (he) has replaced by Visa and MasterCard for card payment system China Union Pay and wallet with cash.

Timchenko March 20 was included in the U.S. Treasury list of persons with whom the U.S. companies and citizens have the right to maintain the business relationship, including U.S. registered Visa and MasterCard.

Businessman said that stopped using these cards payment systems. “We’ll have to, as before, to carry a purse with cash,” – complained Timchenko, adding that also enjoys card Chinese Union Pay.

“As the sanctions imposed, it immediately issued,” – he said. “Excellent work! And accept card in many places. In some ways more secure than Visa. At least Americans will not reach” – said Timchenko.

The targeting eof businessmn in the U.S. sanctions list created trouble for electronic payments system said Russian President Vladimir Putin on April 17 during his “straight line”, describing the incident as a violation of human rights.

The move has also created trouble for US and European banks as the Russians have been moving serious amounts of money out of reach of the US and its allies.

While Obama and his little chums hopes that pressure on the oligarchs will create some grief for Putin, saner heads worry that it will merely corner Russia into survival mode and that could lead to serious repurcussions in the west.

Atrocities In Iraq As Syrias brave Freedom Fighters Advance

““When you find yourself on the side of the majority, it’s time to pause and reflect.” – Mark Twain


Back in 2003 when I was arguing against western intervention in Iraq (not on this blog, because if blog.co.uk existed then I did not know about it,) people who flatter themselves that they are on the left of the political spectrum, the political position which, its supporters claim, has a monopoly on goodness, truth, intelligence and virtue, were screaming “But we must intervene on humanitarian grounds to stop that nasty tyrant Saddam Hussein doing nasty things to his lovely people. Why don’t you want to help those lovely people, is is because they have darker skin than us, you nasty racist, swivel eyed right wing nutter.”

Well OK, I have given up expecting intelligent, reasoned argument form the neo fascist-left,in any debate we ought to know that the socialists are right because … well they jut are, OK?

How The US Is Arming Both sides In The Iraq Conflict

It’s unfortunate that because the left dominated media show pictures of burned children and bereaved parents, and appeal to the embedded sentimentality of people in societies where Nanny State has protected them for too long from the harsh realities of the world, the unthinking majority are easily whipped into line behind a course that suits the interests of the military – indistrial complex which makes loadsa money out of selling equipment to governments so terrorists supported by the same governments can blow it up.

Actually it’s not OK, self righteousness is not a virtue. The left mindset tends to be binary, in everything it sees only two possible positions, the one they support and the evil one. It was thus on same sex marriage where any argument other tht total and enthusiastic support marked one as a homophobe, it was the same in the recent European Parliament elections when even the slightest suggestion that it might be a good idea to enforce existing immigration controls branded one a racist.

And it is the same when America’s leader, the Jug Eared Jihadist, the Rent Boy President, Barack Hussein Obama (or whatever American President happens to be in power) is phishing for support for yet another ‘humanitarian’ intervention in the domestic politics of a sovereign state with drones, bomb strikes and ground troops equipped with white phosphorus and delpeted uranium shells.

Some political nation states, particularly those cobbled together by western bureaucrats after the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire followig World War 1 or the disintegration of the British Empire and other colonial systems in the wake of World War 2, were never suited to democracy and have done well to last as long as they have. Similar problems are starting to emerge in Eastern Europe.

isis atrocities in Iraq

The current crisis in Iraq, an overflow from the western sponsored civil war in Syria, where the powers of the FUKUS axis (France, UK and USA) were eager to barge in and create another failed state until Vladimir Putin and his Chinese and Iranian allies said “stop right there”, is a direct result of the intervention in 2003 which was justified by false claims of Saddam Hussein’s regime possessing WMDs.

And if our lefty friends thought Saddam’s brutal rule warranted humanitarian intervention, they should see the stuff going on in Iraq now, the atrocities being committed by ISIS terrorists armed with American and European weapons supplied to help with the overthrow of another middle eastern dictator, Assad of Syria, who did not dance to the American tune.

Gruesome Footage Of ISIS Atrocities Reveals Al Qaeda Jihadists “Will Stop At Nothing”

Judging by the gruesome propaganda video being released by ISIS, it is no wonder the Iraqi soldiers and police stripped off uniforms and ran… As The Daily Mail reports, blood-thirsty jihadists are carrying out summary executions on civilians, Iraqi soldiers and police officers – including 17 in one street alone – on their warpath to Baghdad, the UN said today. As a shocking picture of the ISIS insurgency continues to develop, the Islamist group are posting barbaric videos online with the intent of showing the world they will stop at nothing to achieve their end game. The aim is to terrorise Sunnis in Iraq’s army and police forces and deepen their already low morale. It appears to be working as that fear is one factor behind the stunning collapse of Iraqi security forces.

Read full article:

Still thing there is a case for intervention to overthrow leaders of non democratic nations that the American President of the day does not like very much. Or that having intervened with bombing campaigns, cruise missile and drone strikes etc. to destroy the political and logistical infrastructure it is OK to withdraw for purely political reasons related to winning elections, rather than leave in place an army of occupation.

And lefties, don’t try to undermine me by saying I want recolonisation, you are the one who scream for ‘humanitarian’ intervention remember. I have always supported non intervention from the start.

New Regimes R Us

“Journalism is reporting news somebody does not want reported, everything else is public relations.” – George Orwell

First it happened in Egypt (and we all know what happened there), Tunisia (a less well publicised failed state) and Libya. Then it all went a bit pear shaped in Yemen and Syria. Now it’s happening in Ukraine and Venezuela. The Global Totalitarian Government pushers, their puppets in Washington, London, Berlin and Paris, their pimps in Goldman Sachs, Citibank, HSBC, J P Morgan et al and the ponces of the United Nations, IMF, EU, OECD and the rest are trying to crush legitimate governments that dared to stand up to the New World Order and its corporate dictatorship agenda.

maidan square

Fears are growing among the terrorism sponsors of the FUKUS axis that once again chaos will result from their efforts to depose a regime in order to usher in a pseduo-liberal sockpuppetocracy that will prioritize gay and lesbian “rights” over taking action to prevent the rape of their nation by global banks and corporate conglomerates. It looks increasingly likely that US / EU supported rebels who were primed to drag Ukraine into the European Union (EUSSR) against the wishes of half the Ukrainian population will fail and Ukraine will split in two as crisis deepens in Kiev.

Rebels who support Ukrainian membership of the EU seized the office President Viktor Yanukovych in Kiev over the weekend and put in place an interim President and Government that has no legitimate authority and includes people from extreme left anarchist and right wing neo Nazi groups.

Meanwhile Regional lawmakers in the pro-Russia east rejected the legitimacy of the new government and the national parliament and said they were taking control of their territories. (Zero Hedge)

President Viktor Yanukovych, who is still technically the head of state said he was not resigning and slammed the crisis as a coup, saying it resembled the rise of the Nazis in the 1930s. Yanukovych fled Kiev for his stronghold in eastern Ukraine, .

“Everything that is happening today is … vandalism and bandits and a coup d’état,” Yanukovych said in a televised statement. He said he would not sign any of the measures passed by parliament.

All in all then, it looks as if FUKUS meddling has once again taken a nation to the brink of civil war and the world a few steps closer to global conflict. We are now witing for Vladimir Putin to make his next move and for the Chinese to make their position clear.

Tymoshenko Promises to Deliver Ukraine to the New World Order

Yulia Timoshenko: billionaire, oligarch, fraudster,ex – jailbird and hero of the New World Order

On Saturday, oligarch, embezzler, murder suspect and former prime minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko, released from a prison sentence* in the eastern industrial city of Kharkiv, to wind up the Euromaidan revolutionaries in Kyviv’s Independence Square and push Ukraine closer to civil war.

“Do not leave Maidan as long as you have not obtained what you wanted,” she told the mob. “Your fight for freedom will bring about democracy in other ex-Soviet republics.This is a different Ukraine. This is a Ukraine of free people, and you have given this country to each and all of us, those who are living today and those who will live tomorrow. That is why people were on Maidan, who perished on Maidan will be heroes for ever,”

After arriving in Kyviv to assume leadership of the revolution that claimed the lives of around 100 people and brought down the corrupt government of Yanukovych and his cronies, the equally corrupt Tymoshenko said she is sure that Ukraine will be a member of the European Union in the near future and this will change everything, according to the Interfax news agency. (Read more at The Independent)

She could be right. If Ukraine with its basket case economy joins the EU it will become the new Greece in a matter of months. And people like you and I will be asked to pay more tax to prop up another state ruined by the globalists and European Superstate Nazis. It all seems to depend on the aforementioned V. Putin.

*Tymoshenko appeared in a wheelchair having come from a civilian hospital where she has been undergoing treatment, reportedly for cancer.
