Western Hypocrisy In Reporting News about Ukraine And Russia

Ukraine invited to join NATO – it’s deja vu all over again.

“While questions about Russia’s tactics remain, its strategy has become more clear: The Kremlin appears to have decided to prevent Ukraine turning West and leaving what Russia regards as its sphere of influence.”

Those words, from a CNN news report are typical of the hypocrisy displayed by mainstream media when reporting news from Ukraine, and the pro – American (OK, if you haven’t worked out yet that NATO is euphemism for U.S. State Department, you are not going to understand this article.)

I’m not really old enough to remember in detail but in the early 1960s, when the USA could have decided to meekly accept Cuba’s having turned away from the U.S. sphere of influence that had existed under the prior, corrupt, Cuban leader, Fulgensio Batista, and becoming instead a new Soviet satellite, under communist Fidel Castro, the then President, J. F. Kennedy took the world to the brink of nuclear war rather than surrender the strategically important client state.

With more current relevance perhaps, we need to consider, how the U.S. reacted to Cuba’s new best mate, The Soviet union trying to insert Soviet missiles with nuclear warheads in Cuba, right next door to its southernmost state?

The crisis that erupted when Kennedy sent in the U S Marines is formally known as the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. My Dad, having worked for the Quaker owned liberal newspaper, The News Chronicle until it folded in 1961 had just started for The Daily Express at the time and was not enjoying the pro war stance adopted by The Express. Still, a job’s a job.

In short, the USA and its allies were not prepared to tolerate a rival superpower opening up a military base from which strategic nuclear missiles could be launched right on it’s doorstep. And what powerful nation would tolerate it, it would be like …… em …….. like ……. erm …….like Ukraine or Poland joining NATO and then allowing the U S government to set up missile bases in those countries, close to Russia’s borders.

Don’t be on this fooled by the screeching of lefties on this, they who simplify the world by claiming there are only two races, black and white, only two cultures, secular atheism and religious fanaticism, that science is The One True God and that ‘we’ are good and ‘they’ are evil may like to wave their academic qualifications in our faces but forget that most of the great advances in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and technology were made by people who did not have a PhD in ‘Science-with-Origami’ from a university. Their opinion is worth no more than your or mine and as most of them only regurgitate propaganda they don’t really have any opinions of their own.

Russia will no more let the USA make Ukraine a client state from which Moscow can be threatened by US missiles than Washington would have allowed The Kremlin to deploy its nuclear weapons in Cuba. Putin is taking exactly the same stance as Kennedy did.

In 1962 The Soviets were seen as the danger to the world peace and democratic nations quickly lined up alongside the American government. Ironically while our leftie friends were traditionally sympathetic to the communist USSR, they are now very eager to support America, even though polls have shown that, globally, the U.S. is considered to be, by far, the most dangerous nation in the world — considerably more dangerous than Russia or China.

Are the news reporters, the editors, publishers and broadcasters and the managers, who run the news industry really so ignorant of the relevant history on this subject (the Cuban Missile Crisis, and its reverse analogue today in Ukraine), as they pretend to be?

Of not. But they want their public to remain that way (ignorant of hitorical truth, or too distracted by celebrity gossip to make the link), because the people who provide their revenue stream, their advertisers, want the public to stay ignorant, thus having no alternative but to trust the propaganda.

One of the basic human rights in a liberal democracy is the right to fr ee speech and for that right to have any meaning we must have a free press. I have said many times that we no longer live in democratic nations, the same corporate interests as control banking and the money supply, manufacturing and the extraction industries, agriculture and medicine also control news and the media.

An important component in the mechanism of control is controlled news, George Orwell predicted it in his novel 1984. By using controlled information to manipulate the public in the way that virtually all advertisers, all corporate finance directors, all CEO’s and all political leaders want them to be manipulated: to trust everything we are told by the machine, rather than questioning what does not make sense.

If you see any left wing (neo – Fascist) apparatchik ranting about how unreasonable Russia is being over Ukraine, just point them at this article. It’s doubtful that they will learn anything, but at least it will wind them up because they can’t stand anybody disagreeing with them.

What A Joke These Leftie Hypocrites Are

Much of the build up to the NATO summit at Newport’s Celtic Manor on 4 and 5 September, which will attempt to formulate a united strategy for dealing with ‘threats’ to western security in Ukraine and Iraq, has been focused on the world leaders who will be attending, along with the security operation.

NATO are being coy about exactly how much of our money they are spending in order to keep our leaders safe from harmless hippy types yelling peace slogans, but you can bet it will be more than the annual GDP on many small nation. Paranoia does not come cheap.

Apparently Barack Obama is tearing himself off Reggie Love’s cock the golf course and will be attending. This means of course the conference has failed before it starts.

Behind the scenes of course there are many lesser-known people who are preparing for the two-day event. They include Welsh people and businesses who will have some involvement during the Nato summit. Most interesting however, mainly because they will not get a mention in mainstream media are the anti – corporatism, anti – militsarism, anti – war protestors gathering as near as they are allowed to the venue.

From 30 August protesters will flock to South Wales for international actions including a national demonstration, counter summit, and week-long peace camp. Stop the War and CND have organised NO TO NATO – NO NEW WARS protests from 30 August to 5 September. See the timetable of action and events planned by Stop The War.

I’m with Stop The War of course, I’ve always opposed war, in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine and Iraq again. And yet some people here who have always supported war, especially when there was a chance to bomb the crap out of some powerless little nation whose air force consisted of a few World War Two Fokkers (no planes, just a few octogenarian German fokkers), call themselves left wing and describe me as a right wing extremist. Effing political illiterates.

So tell me when was supporting war in pursuit of corporate profit, American hegemony and getting a kick out of killing lots of innocent, defenceless people (have you ever seen the grin on Obama’s face when he signs an executive order for more drone strikes?)become acceptable alongside the traditional left wing values of pacifism, humanitarianism and fraternity?

They Lied Then, Why Should We Believe Them Now?

While leaving The Perils Of Centralized Power at the top of the page because it is a post of global importance which can raise the awareness of many people to the essential dishonesty of people who love Big Government and the idea of a global governing authority, we will continue with the theme of official dishonesty. The latest episode, hot on the heels of the ‘false flag’ shooting down of Malaysia airlines flight MH17 and the pathetically inept attempt by American, EU and Ukrainian leaders to blame the rebel rabble, we now have the on – off ‘invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Army.

Same journalists who ‘proved’ Iraq had WMD now assure the world Russia is invading Ukraine

“Russian Invasion” Of Ukraine, Turns Out to Have Been a Translation Error

After all major news-entities repeated the “invasion” claim and the public damage is done they simply take it back.

from The Tap:

August 29, 2014 “ICH” -The authors of this NYT piece, Ukraine Reports Russian Invasion on a New Front, are not really convincing when presenting these reports by the Ukrainian government as truthful:

The latest incursion, which Ukraine’s military said included five armored personnel carriers, was at least the third movement of troops and weapons from Russia across the southeast part of the border this week, further bluntingthe momentum Ukrainian forces have made in weakening the insurgents in their redoubts of Donetsk and Luhansk farther north. Evidence of a possible turn was seen in the panicky retreat of Ukrainian soldiers on Tuesday from a force they said had come over the Russian border.

Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for the Ukrainian military in Kiev, said the Russian armored column entered the town of Amvrosiyivka, south of Donetsk, expanding what Western and Ukrainian officials have described as one of the main fronts in a multipronged counteroffensive directed by Russia.

The “momentum” the Ukrainian troops had was never as big as the Ukrainian government had claimed. A few motorized brigades ran through open territory held by few insurgents and when coming to a halt at their primary target were immediately cut off and surrounded. Their moral is bad, their equipment old, ammunition is low and the entire aim of their campaign is dubious. Now even a few weak counterattacks, the “counteroffensive”, have them on the run.
While the piece repeats the Ukrainian claim that Russian material, including ammunition, passed over the border the third picture shows some 20+ wooden boxes of RPGs and the caption says:
“A villager opened a box of rocket-propelled grenades left by the Ukrainian Army in Starobecheve, southeast of Donetsk. Pro-Russia rebels took over the town after the military withdrew.”
Obviously the fleeing Ukrainian troops are leaving a lot of goodies behind.
Then there is this:

The separatists have asserted that they are using captured Ukrainian equipment. But American officials say they are confident that the artillery in the Krasnodon area of Ukraine is Russia’s since Ukrainian forces have not penetrated that deeply into that separatist-controlled region. American officials also say the separatists have no experience in using such weaponry.

That bold part is of course utter bullshit. The Donetsk miners and volunteers from Russia all have had regular military service. They surely will be able to handle Grad systems, little evolved from World War II, and other artillery. Continue reading …

Just as I was thinking. “The Tap is not the most reliable source,” I scrolled down their report to this:

Update
This is a quite amazing “information operation” without doubt of U.S. origin.
Consider: The Ukrainian President talks about Russian affiliated insurgents in east-Ukraine and Reuters and others distribute this as “invasion”. After all major news-entities repeated the “invasion” claim and the public damage is done they simply take it back.
Consider this from Tagesschau, the highest rated German TV news show:

ukraine invasion a translation error

Translation:

On #Ukraine there was a translation error by the agency Reuters: According to the correction Poroshenko did not talk of an invasion.

I wonder if Professor Want – War will make of that. He’s the scientist who says very scientifically, “You must never believe anything in Russian media because thirty years ago, when Pravda was their official newspaper it was full of propaganda, so that proves everything Russia’s enemies say is true.”

I suppose if the Germans are saying Russia told the truth he’s claim that proves German media are liars too. And yet in the past he has proved more than willing to believe the biggest liars of all, the American government.

4 Nation Cover Up On Fate Of MH17 – Laugh? I Nearly Shat

Perp Responsible For Downing In Ukraine of the Malaysian Airliner, Will Stay Hidden – five nation agreement to hide the facts implicates USA, Ukraine, Britain and Belgium

What about Malaysia, don’t they have an interest, you might well ask. Of course they do, but the government of Malaysia has an interest in the truth becoming public knowledge, while it seems to others do not.

But what amused me about the nearest thing we are going to get to a resolution to this terrible event? It was a laugh of bitter irony actually, not about the event itself but the vitriolic attacks on me by stupid people who wanted to brand me a conspiracy theorist and right wing extremist because I disbelieved the ludicrous claims made by Barack Obama that he had ‘compelling evidence’ (i.e. he read it on Twitter) that Russia was in some way responsible.

from Washington’s Blog – Posted on August 24, 2014 by Eric Zuesse

Regarding what caused the downing of the Malaysian airliner MH-17 in Ukraine on July 17th, the Ukrainian news agency UNIAN, reported in a brief Russian-language news story on August 12th, that four days earlier (August 8th) a representative of that nation’s Prosecutor General office, Yuri Boychenko, had said that (as auto-translated by google), “the results [of the investigation] will be announced upon completion of the investigation and with the consent of all the parties who signed the corresponding agreement.”

This UNIAN report said that, “As part of the four-party agreement signed on August 8 between Ukraine, the Netherlands, Belgium and Australia [all of which nations are allies of the United States and are cooperating with its new Cold War against Russia], information on the investigation into the disaster Malaysian ‘Boeing-777’ will not be disclosed.” In other words: the official ‘investigation’ is being carried out by four nations that, as U.S. allies, are hostile toward Russia. One of those four nations, Ukraine, is not only a prime suspect in possibly having shot this airliner down, but is currently waging a hot war to ethnically-cleanse the pro-Russian population out of southeastern Ukraine; and the initial ‘news’ reports in Western ‘news’ media regarding the downing of MH-17 had said that this airliner was probably downed by the local rebels there, who were trying to shoot down the Ukrainian Government’s bombers that are constantly bombing them. Some Western ‘news’ reports even speculated that perhaps Russia itself had shot this airliner down.

If the UNIAN news-report is correct, then there is no way that the ‘investigation’ will be able to be released to the public if it indicates that the Ukrainian Government (which, according to that news-report has veto power over the making-public of the study’s findings) is blamed for having shot the airliner down.

On August 12th, another pro-Ukrainian-Government ‘news’ site, gordonua.com, headlined, as auto-translated by google, “GPU: The results of the investigation [into the] crash [of] the Boeing 777 will be released with the consent of the parties,” and said, “Information about the accident MH17 in the Donetsk region will be published in obtaining the consent of all the parties that are involved in the investigation.” UNIAN was cited there as gordonua’s sole source. ‘News’ media didn’t probe the matter further.

Funny Things Happen In Ukraine.

Troll Alert – disinformation trolls sighted near Boggart Blog, shoot them on sight.

Regular readers may have noticed that while Boggart Blog’s editor was busy with other things, the team carried on endeavouring with the persistence of old fashioned investigative reporters who wore grubby Aquascutum raincoats and battered brown trilby hats tilted towards the back of their heads, always had a cigarette in their mouths and were never far from a glass of whisky (sorry, while we had builders in I rediscovered an old Dashiell Hammet novel) our efforts to present ALL the latest news and opinion on the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine have attracted trolls who seem to work on the principle that any ideas straying from the FUKUS axis propaganda must be suppressed.

I’ll deal with them another time.

While media attention was focused on the accusations and denials, claims and counterclaims and general incoherent babble from the two sides, another strange episode was unfolding in Ukraine, the case of The Convoy That Never Existed.

A story that broke in mainstream media last Thursday (14 August). headlined by one online news site as Disinformation War In Ukraine Escalates”, it reported a Russian military convoy was attacked and almost completely “eliminated” on Ukraine territory on Thursday night, a statement which was also “confirmed” by none other than the Ukraine president, yet where not a single trace of evidence was released showing any such convoy destruction. Strange really because reporters from The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph reported having witnessed the burned out vehicles of the convoy “with their own eyes.” (echoing Gulf War Iraqi information minister Comical Ali.

So we were obviously in for yet another round of the war of disinformation, misinformation, deception, spin and downright lying, which we got on Sunday when Ukraine accused pro-Russian rebels on Monday of hitting a refugee convoy of buses with rocket fire near the eastern city of Luhansk, killing people trapped in the burning vehicles.

Andrei Purgin, deputy prime minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic countered by saying, “The Ukrainians themselves have bombed the road constantly with airplanes and Grads. It seems they’ve now killed more civilians like they’ve been doing for months now. We don’t have the ability to send Grads into that territory,” said .

Another rebel spokesman denied any civilian convoy had been struck, challenging the Kiev authorities to produce evidence. (Given the Kiev government or their supporters abysmal record on producing evidence to support Kiev’s claims, we would advise you not to hold your breath.)

So what if anything might have happened – and bear in mind that any statements from blog.co.uk’s resident simple minded scientist (read the comment thread under that link) to the effect that “Barack Obama says the Kiev regime are the good guys so they must be telling the truth,” do not constitute evidence.

Soon after reports of the alleged Ukrainian attack on Russia’s convoy hit western news feeds, the Russian defense ministry responded, saying that no Russian military column had crossed into Eastern Ukraine, and that reports were based on “some fantasies.”

This is where the breakdown of logic occurs, because for Russia to make such a formal statement the Russian government obviously believes there is no evidence of destruction of a Russian convoy in Ukraine territory, something which obviously would exist if indeed as Ukraine’s president had claimed, the “majority of the machines had been eliminated.”

If true, it also implies that either Ukraine had fabricated the entire story, and certainly the part about the destruction of the convoy and by extension that Russians had ever entered into East Ukraine.

Unless, of course, there is evidence in the form of wrecked vehicles that something had happened, in which case the eye witness reports from the Guardian and Telegraph reporters (who, no matter what you think of their respective papers, are not idiots) are valid but a misunderstanding of what was seen.

More to the point, the onus is on Ukraine to present some evidence, in fact any evidence, of a destroyed Russian military convoy instead of merely building upon a story conceived by the two UK media outlets, because if Ukraine indeed has no evidence, then its story falls apart and what’s worse, the credibility and reputation of its government, of NATO and certainly of the UK press would be in tatters.

So if Ukraine did not destroy a Russian convoy because there was no Russian convoy, but the British reporters saw wreckage that was evidence of an attack, what other possibility is there? Well, one that would destroy the credibility of the Ukraine government even more comprehensively than being caugh lying again, namely that in their enthusiasm for blowing things up, the Ukrainian military may have destroyed a convoy of its own military vehicles. A possible lead to such a turn of events comes from this Interfax report citing the leadership of the breakaway Donetsk People’s Republic.

“The leadership of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic has dismissed the Ukrainian government’s statement on destroying a convoy of what appeared to be Russian armored vehicles in eastern Ukraine.

“We haven’t received any armored vehicles from Russia. No Russian units, including Russian armored vehicles, have crossed the border. Hence, no Russian armored vehicles could have been destroyed,” DPR First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Purgin told Interfax on Friday evening.

But perhaps the most damning evidence comes from none other than the White House itself, which according to CNN just admitted that while it accuses Moscow of “incursions” it can’t confirm the convoy was destroyed by Kiev.

So as I said, this post is to help readers deal with pro war trolls, sick neo-fascist freaks that they are. It shows how to assemble evidence from many sources and analyse it. Trolls have no use for evidence, they work for one side or the other and merely repeat propaganda. And you’ve seen above how reliable a source propaganda is.

Fear and Panic and Ebola Fever

fear and panic
Fear and Panic (source)

Do you hear that distant drumming, like the sound of racehorses rounding the final turn before they thunder up the home straight, driven by a primary instict to get ahead of the field, as far away as possible from the source of danger. Actually there are only two horses, Phobos and Diemos, the firey eyed stallions whose hooves strike flame from the earth. Phobos and Diemos, fear and panic, the demon horses that pull the chariot of The War God.

It’s fear and panic time again folks. Last time Phobos and Diemos galloped past here they were carrying the threat of jihad as a justification for the war that would provide the economic miracle needed by nations and businesses.

But the threat of Jihad did not generate enough fear and panic to scare the citizens of western powers into supporting their leaders calls for war. Iraq and Afghanistan did not warrant global conflict, attempts to provke Iran evoked a lot of sabre rattling and some very effective cyber attacks in response. In Libya a tyrant fell without a major struggle and the small, oil rich nation descended into dystopian chaos as the ‘brave, democracy loving’ freedom fighters began fighting each other over who would become the next brutal tyrant.

In Egypt a geriatric dictator, Mubarack, was overthrown, the democracy hungry rebels inserted in his place quickly showed themselves to be Islamist theorcrats and were efficiently removed and replace by the man who without western intervention would quietly have replaced Mubarack anyway.

In Syria, rebels sponsored by western money and armed with western weapons failed to overthow the dictator Assad and when the government’s rigourously disciplined and well equipped troops started to get the upper hand the rebels showed their true colours by slaughtering people for being Christian or even the wrong sort of Muslim, holding human organ noshing parties in the squares and market places of towns and villages they held and generally showing themselves to be the kind of people democratic and liberal western politicians should not have been supporting.

And when an attempt to trigger war by staging a false flag attack and trying to blame Assad supporters was thwarted by Russia and China stepping up the the mark alongside Assad and United Nations inspectors having a sudden attack of honesty and revealing the poison gas cannisters could not have been fired Assad’s troops, the warmongers were thwarted again.

The latest attempt to justify war has been the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine allegeDly by pro Russia separatists with support from The Kremlin. So far the ‘compelling evidence’ the American government claimed to possess has not been revealed but such evidence as has been seen points to another false flag even, staged this time by the neo – Fascist government installed in Ukraine by the western powers after the democratically elected government was deposed by a US / EU supported coup d’etat.

And of course a big factor in thwarting the ambitions of the warmongering globalists was public opinion led by the blogosphere reminding voters that our remote and reality averse leaders and the sycophantic media that prop them up cannot be trusted to act in the interests of We The Punters, not in 1914, not in 1939, not in The Cold War, not in the free market shenanigans of 1992 to 2007 and not now.

Because now their are turning up the fear and panic generator dial to eleven and trying to cow us with a pandemic scare. Remember the Swine Flu pandemic when a new species of Flu was Going to jump the species barrier from pigs, mutate into something fatal to humans and kill us all if we did not cede control of our lives to government agencies? Only it didn’t and the World Health Organisation (WHO) had to save face by redefining the meaning of pandemic from “In every nation around the world millions will fall ill and hundreds of thousands will die,” to “A few people here and there will feel a bit poorly.”

They’re doing it again with Ebola fever, ramping up the scare factor and trying to spread enough fear and panic to justify suspending democratic rule by pretending this disease, a terrible killer for which there is no known cure, but which has previously occurred in small outbreaks in parts of the world where killer diseases are always aided and abetted by chronic malnutrition, poor hygiene, lack of medical support and a dearth of pure water for drinking, washing etc.

So should we well nourished, well watered and obsessively clean north Europeans be worried? Cautious and vigilant yes, worried no. And you can take that as a definite ‘no’, in spite of what anybody operating as a shill for wars of corporate profit might tell you.

Some people say there’s a simple cure for Ebola; I could not agree or disagree with them so you can make up your own mind.

“The very first symptoms of ebola are exactly the same as scurvy, which is caused by inadequate vitamin C. Though scurvy is seldom fatal as a primary condition, scurvy also represents only a partial deficiency of vitamin C, the body still has a LOT of vitamin C compared to zero, which ebola causes. Absent ANY vitamin C, blood vessels become very weak and start to lose blood, and platelets become ineffective and unable to trigger clots. So death by ebola is caused by massive internal bleeding and loss of blood, which can be stopped simply by taking enormous doses of vitamin C until the immune system succeeds in killing off the virus.”

Take 20,000 milligrams of Vitamin C an hour.That is about 3,000 milligrams every six minutes.

Sounds a bit extreme, still if you haven’t been to the area where Ebola is active, have not been in contact with anyone who has contracted the virus and you have a healthy diet you have little to worry about.

There are serious questions to basked about this virus however. And people like American libertarian uberblogger Jon Rappoport are asking them. In this section of the linked material he raises questions about research into Ebloa and other haemorrhagic fevers by US Universities and the US Department Of Defense Advanced ReSearch Projects Agency (DARPA) biological warfare unit in the African nations involved in the current Ebola outbreak.

(h/t Jon Rappoport)

Have Tulane researchers been carrying out any experimental treatments (for example: injecting monoclonal antibodies) using citizens of the region? If so, what adverse events have occurred?

The research program, occurring in Sierra Leone, the Republic of Guinea, and Liberia—said to be the epicenter of the 2014 Ebola outbreak—has the announced purpose, among others, of detecting the future use of fever-viruses as bioweapons.

Is this purely defensive research? Or as we have seen in the past, is this research being covertly used to develop offensive bioweapons? For the last several years, researchers from Tulane University have been active in the African areas where Ebola is said to have broken out in 2014. These researchers are working with other institutions, one of which is USAMRIID, the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, a well-known center for biowar research, located at Fort Detrick, Maryland.

In Sierra Leone, the Tulane group has been researching new diagnostic tests for hemorrhagic fevers.

Note: Lassa Fever, Ebola, and other labels are applied to a spectrum of illness that result in hemorrhaging.

Needless to say, the US Department of Defense and Tulane University have not been keen to provide answers. It may be significant however that the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health announced via its Facebook page that among measures aimed at halting the spread of Ebloa it has requested the Tulane University researchers to stop their experiments. Here’s a link to the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health page on Facebook (it’s the first post you arrive at for July 23), and below, to save you scrolling, is the text of the message (emphasis added).

Status Update By Ministry of Health and Sanitation, Sierra Leone
Ebola outbreak update: As of today, 23rd July 2014, we have 108 cumulative number of survivors, 427 confirmed Ebola cases and 144 Ebola confirmed deaths. 65 patients are currently admitted at the Ebola treatment centers in Kenema and Kailahun.

The Ministry of Health & Sanitization and the World Health Organization have established a dedicated Ebola Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at the WHO Country Office in Freetown. The EOC is co-Directed by the Minister of Health, Ms. Miata Kargbo and the WHO Representative for Sierra Leone, Dr. Jacob Mufunda and consists of leaders and partners involved in our fight against Ebola.

The EOC will serve as the Sierra Leone National Central Command and Control Center for Outbreak Response activities and meets every day. The EOC members under the leadership of the Honourable Minister of Health and Sanitation unanimously decided at the July 22nd 2014 meeting that the following actions be effected immediately:

• That all new confirmed cases be admitted at the Treatment Center in Kailahun whiles the Ministry and its partners work on relocating the Treatment Center in Kenema out of the Kenema Government Hospital Premise to another location as requested by health workers and the people of Kenema

• The existing patients at the treatment center in Kenema continue to be cared for at that center with enhanced Infection Prevention Control and nursing care

• More health personnel be trained in Infection Prevention Control and nursing care

• Tulane University to stop Ebola testing during the current Ebola outbreak

• Center for Disease Control (CDC) to officially send their findings and recommendations from the assessment of the laboratory and treatment center in Kenema

• The Ministry of Health and Sanitation to proceed with the procurement of three vehicles currently in country for contact tracing and surveillance

The EOC wishes the general public and all partners working in the healthcare sector to know that Dr. Shiekh Umar Khan is still alive and responding to treatment contrary to social media report of his demise.

Whenever you hear the hoofbeats of Phobos and Deimos, don’t be afraid. Just remind yourself that whenever governments let loose fear and panic it is to conceal the fact that they are up to no good.

Was Malaysia Flight 17 Shot Down?

“From start to finish, the Ukraine crisis has been instigated by US imperialism. Every action Washington has taken has been directed at exacerbating and intensifying this crisis. The longer this crisis goes on, the clearer it becomes that US policy is directed not so much at Ukraine as at Russia itself. Ukraine, it would seem, is meant merely to provide the pretext for a war with Russia.”

Evidence Conclusive: Ukraine Military Shot Down MH17 In False Flag Operation
Michael Thomas

MH17: More evidence points to Kiev / Washington False Flag

Now Things Are Starting To Make Sense

It is now known that the uprising in Ukraine early this year that saw the elected government, which was cooperating far too well with Russia for the liking of the western powers overthrown and replaced by a US and EU sponsored gaggle of gangsters, thugs and neo – fascists whose task was to serve western interests rather than those of Ukraine’s population.

Many commentators have suggested that if we join up the dots the picture that emerges reveals a push by powerful interests to establish a USA led global hegemony. And when we look at regime change wars and civil unrest in other countries the screams of “conspiracy theory” from those who yearn to live under a global totalitarian government take on a hollow tone.

Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Ukraine have all been destabilised by international action led by the United States. Libya, Iraq and Syria all have oil So how do Afghanistan and Ukraine fit in.

Afghanistan is the key to opening a pipeline route from the Caspian and former Soviet Republics in central Asia to the Indian Ocean. And there are rumours of possible untapped oil and gas reserves in Afghan teritory.

Ukraines strategic location on the pipeline routes from oil and gas fields in the Caucasus and around The Caspian Sea into Europe. And then there’s this:

Company In Which US Vice President Joe Biden’s Son Is Director Prepares To Drill Shale Gas In East Ukraine

Recall what we said earlier today: the proxy war Ukraine conflict, just like that in Syria preceding it, “is all about energy.” Recall also the following chart showing Ukraine’s shale gas deposits, keeping in mind that the Dnieper-Donets basin accounts for approximately 90 per cent of Ukrainian production. Finally, recall our story from May that Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, just joined the board of the largest Ukraine gas producer Burisma Holdings. Now put it all together and you will like figure out what will happen next.

Well maybe not what will happen next but certainly why the USA is so desperate to drive a wedge between Russia and Europe and to demonise Vladimir Putin while in the same move gaining control of Ukraine’s oil and gas reserves. And that offers some insight into why Obama was on TV blaming pro Russian separatists for downing Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 almost before it was hit.

It also demonstrates that the pro EU Ukrainian government and western interests had a lot to gain from politicising such an outrage. So ignoring any outbursts from certain Professorial pricks who can’t understand that when I said there was no evidence last Thursday that the separatists were responsible that is not the same as saying the separatists were not responsible or that somebody else was.

I know it is incomprehensible to childbrains who try and give their words authority by announcing “I’m a scientist”, or “I work in a university”, but in the real world there are often more than two possible answers to a question. (Actually I can truthfully say I have worked in three universities, Manchester, Liverpool and Corpus Christi, Cambridge; IT consultants get around.)

And so sensible people take a step back and wait for the details to emerge before jumping to conclusions. We’re still waiting.

MH17 – Nothing is ever what it seems to be

MH17 – Nothing is ever what it seems to be

Having crossed swords this morning with someone who is quite sure that every word of propaganda is absolute gospel truth and he works in a university so knuckle dragging oiks such as me, who do not spend their lives insulated from reality in universities have no right to disagree with him (Boggart Blog tip: If you want to play the intellectual bully the first requirement is to actually possess an intellect,) therefore there can be no doubt whatsoever that Vladimir Putin personally fired the missile that brought down the Malaysia Airlines flight over Ukraine (I love hyperbole).

I love the naive belief of these “evidence based thinkers” that the inability of us sceptics to prove the Russian separatists did not do it serves as proof that they did. But I would remind readers that Boggart Blog has never said the pro Russian rebels in Ukraine did not bring down the plane, only that the evidence they did that has so far been offered is flimsy and full of holes. There is also much stronger evidence emerging which implicates the Kiev government. This may turn out to prove nothing more that the Kermlin propaganda dept. is more competent than the British and American propaganda departments.

Saying “Our guys are wearing white hats so the other guys are guilty,” is not how scepticism works however. And the problem our “evidence based” chums often encounter is that evidence does not necessarily confirm their wild assumptions.

Take a look at this for example:

The Los Angeles Times:

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was cruising just 1,000 feet above restricted airspace when it was struck by a missile in Ukraine’s Donetsk region, according to aviation and intelligence officials.

Despite ongoing violence in eastern Ukraine, including the recent downing of two military aircraft, Ukrainian aviation officials had closed the region’s airspace only below 32,000 feet in altitude.

The Boeing 777, en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, with 298 people aboard, was at 33,000 feet when it vanished from radar screens, according to European aviation authorities.

That report does not prove responsibility but it does show the failure of western governments to make commercial airlines aware of the risks of overflying Ukraine’s conflict zone. It does however note that western intelligence was aware the only SAM equipment the rebels have is the MANPAD shoulder held launcher which fires missiles effective up to altitudes of 17,000 feet.

Reuters comments:

Malaysia Airlines filed a flight plan requesting to fly at 35,000 feet throughout Ukraine airspace but was instructed by Ukraine air traffic control to fly at 33,000 feet upon entry ….

While CBS, in an article entitled “‘Big Question’ Is Why Plane Was Flying Over War Zone” asks the question many bloggers have been asking:

The Atlantic raises the competence issue:

Did aviation authorities know that this was a dangerous area?

Yes, they most certainly did. Nearly three months ago, on the “Special Rules” section of its site, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration put out an order prohibiting American pilots, airlines, charter carriers, and everyone else over whom the FAA has direct jurisdiction, from flying over parts of Ukraine.

So we see that it is not quite so clear cut as White Hats and Black Hats. I must admit to not having a clue who was responsible for bringing down Flight MH17 or whether it was a deliberate act of terrorism or a terrible accident.

What I find obscene however is the eagerness of politicians and media commentators in the west to blame Russia (and possibly provoke a global war – yesterday I wrote about what the mainstream media are not telling you, forgetting to mention that the Chinese have condemned the FUKUS axis rush to blame Russia). Has everyone forgotten already the false flag gas attack in Syria, the ‘humanitarian mission in Libya which turned into a regime change war and turned Libya into a failed state and the failed wars in Iraq and Afghanistan initiated by the western powers.

Western leaders don’t just want war, they’re mad for it. Perhaps they think that as in the 1930s, a global conflict will pull the west out of a prolonged economic depression.

The stink of rotting fish is permeating the mainstream news

Can you smell it, that distinctive miasma of rotting marine life, the kind of thing you only expect to get a whiff of in fish markets around The Mediterranean on hot summer days. Strangely it seems to be everywhere.

Do you smell it yet?

Today the news is full of the Israeli assault on Gaza. Israel’s armed forces have invaded Palestinian territory with tanks under cover of aerial bombardment of Gaza’s shanty towns by missiles and airborne assaults. It has been going on for a few days, well over a week if we are being honest.

Do we hear screams of protest from the Obama, stern condemnation from Cameron, does Hollande remove his lips from the nipple of his latest mistress long enough to express outrage? No, the mealy mouthed equivocal comments we hear seem to suggest that the Palestinians should surrender and agree to all Israeli demands including granting the Israelis the right to kick the crap out of Palestine any time they feel like it.

In fact it is only outrage in the blogosphere that has woken up mainstream media, where most of the luvvieocracy have been happy to suck up to The White House and Whitehall by calling for the head of Vladimir Putin by way of retribution for the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

In spite of all the inconsistencies surrounding that story and the question everybody is asking but nobody wants to answer, WTF was a civilian passenger flight doing on a route that took it over a conflict zone, all the luvvieocracy want to talk about is the “compelling evidence” that pro Russian separatists acting on direct order from Putin. This compelling evidence seems to be that a bloke on combat fatigues who carries an AK47 everywhere told a reporter that a Russian bloke in a self propelled SAM launcher drove up and said, “My name is Putin, I want you to use this fully armed bit of kit to shoot down the next passenger aircraft that flies over.” Well OK, I’m paraphrasing a bit.

Final moments of Flight MH17 – The Russian Version Of The Story

So while the luvvieocracy have been running round like headless chickens trying to find a way to blame Putin for the Flight MH17 outrage, the Israelis have as usual been getting a free pass to slaughter Palestinians. (Read more at BBC News)

So if we join up the dots the picture that emerges is somewhat confused, if fact all that emerges with any clarity is that for those who had an interest in diverting attention from what was happening in Gaza (i.e. Israel and its only international ally, the USA) a major disaster such as the shooting down of Flight 17 could not have happened at a more convenient time. If you know what I mean.

Now do you smell the rotting fish.
