Is the World Health Organization involved in biological warfare research?

 

https://www.stripes.com/polopoly_fs/1.150799.1312164279!/image/3483273437.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_804/3483273437.jpg

Dr. Francis Boyle, a professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law, talked in a recent interview with Owen Shroyer of Infowars about the Wuhan coronavirus now sweeping through the far east,, the Biosafety Level 4 laboratory (BSL-4) in Wuhan, China, where the genetically modified virus appears to have originated, and the World Health Organization’s (WHO) clandestine involvement in biological warfare research.

The most alarming part of the interview was the bombshell allegation of World Health Organisation involvement in the creation of weaponsised viruses as the WHO is supposed to be an agency that seeks to alleviate global health crises, not create them. But it would seem as though the WHO not only knew in advance that 2019-nCoV was created in a lab, but may have also been party to its creation. The Organisation must certainly have been aware of the virus as development of a vaccine was well advanced before news of the first members of the public being infected was broken.

If this is true, it would show a supposedly respected Non Government Organisation with close links to the United Nations a serious crime against humanity and a complete violation of the Geneva Convention and international law.

“The Chinese government has been lying about it from the get-go, covering it up, just like they did on SARS,” Boyle stated during the interview, which you can watch below and at Brighteon.com. “The WHO is in on it. You can’t believe anything the WHO is telling you because this is a WHO special designated research lab. The WHO is up to its eyeballs in biological warfare research.”

To put it bluntly, the BSL-4 lab in Wuhan where many now suspect novel coronavirus originated was actually created for such bioweapon development by the WHO itself. It is perhaps because of his awareness of bioweapon research that Boyle drafted the U.S. legislation for the Biological Weapons Convention, known as the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, which was unanimously approved by both houses of Congress and implemented by the administration of the late President George H.W. Bush.

As for President Trump’s apparent indifference to the current crisis, Boyle blames Trump’s scientific advisers for giving him incomplete and misleading information about what’s going on. In Boyle’s view, there are evil factions here in China and in the west, who are trying to cover up the extent of the unfolding catastrophe.

“I don’t believe President Trump is getting proper scientific advice about how dangerous this really is and that it is an offensive biological warfare weapon,” Boyle stated during the interview. “Basically, he has surrounding him all these scientists who have been up to their eyeballs in this dirty warfare research work here in the United States.”

Nobody should rush to blame a single nation for this however, as well as the USA most other major powers have well established research programs in various types of illegal warfare. The list would include China and Russia naturally, the European Union its efforts led by its main economic and military powers UK, France, Italy and Germany. Although the UK is now no longer an EU member it seems highly likely the country will continue to cooperate with its neighbours and NATO allies in ‘national security’ matters.

Boyle also discussed a report put out by the GreatGameIndia journal that exposes novel coronavirus as a Chinese biowarfare agent, and not some random disease supposedly being spread by snakes and bats.

“On biowarfare programs they want to cover up, they always blame it on bats,” Boyle contends. “You know, bats have been around forever, so give me a break.”

Francis Boyle’s contentions about novel coronavirus being a Chinese bioweapon constitute “synthetic news” in the eyes of Big Tech

A video of the entire interview with Boyle is a must watch for free – thinkers because it’s a real eye-opener, and something mainstream media will avoid like The Plague (oops!). That’s because any information containing even the most oblique references to the involvement of western nations and United Nations agencies in areas of activity that might expose the truth of how the ruling elites operate has been designated “synthetic news” by Google, Twitter, Facebook and the rest of Big Tech and the Big News cartel along with communist China which wants to be fully in charge of the narrative.

There’s an obvious cover-up going on with this whole thing, which Mike Adams of Natural New, also discussed during a recent episode of The Health Ranger Report, which you can watchdirectly at Brighteon.com .

Dr. Francis Boyle interview:

Keep in mind as you watch, that Boyle isn’t the only one talking about this shocking scandal. U.S. Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas has also publicly warned that the official narrative surrounding coronavirus is questionable, at best. At worst, it’s an absolute farce that’s keeping everyone in the dark about how a viral pandemic has been unleashed not by wildlife but by evil men and women who develop and test biological weapons for a living.

“As one epidemiologist said: ‘That virus went into the seafood market before it came out of the seafood market.’ We still don’t know where it originated,” Sen. Cotton is quoted as saying.

“I would note that Wuhan also has China’s only bio-safety level four super laboratory that works with the world’s most deadly pathogens to include, yes, coronavirus.” Other experts, incliding Israeli bioweapons exper Dany Shoham have also spoken up in in agreement.

Clinton Kill List To Determine Who Will Be US 2020 Presidential Candidate?

There is little doubt now that the Democratic Party in the USA is in an even bigger mess than the UK Labour Party. With none of the remaining contenders aged under 70 and all of them tainted by eith scandal or flirtations with far left socialism, prospects at the beginning of this week looked grim for the Dems. And then, in accordance with Murphy’s law, which states just when you think things can’t get any worse, they do, Hillary Clinton has emerged, having found what she obviously thinks is a sure – fire route to the presidency, to offer her services as vice presidential candidate to whoever wins the nomination.

And just to show how far The Democrats are removed from reality, instead of recoiling in horror as they remember the trouncing Trump gave Hillary in 2016, many leading figures in the party and the left leaning media think it’s a good idea. One opinion column contributor to political magazine The Hill even went as far as to say the adoption of Hillary Clinton as Vice President would send chills down Donald Trump’s spine.

The Hill‘s Douglas MacKinnon writes:, Clinton may be in negotiations with former Vice President (and current frontrunner) Joe Biden, former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, or she may try to team up with whoever gets the Democratic nomination.

MacKinnon writing in a Saturday Op-Ed speculates Clinton “would add the gravitas, delegates and, eventually, millions of votes needed to get them over the finish line on Nov. 5. I am assured that Clinton is on every shortlist for that position,” adding “If I were in Trump’s world, this scenario would send chills down my spine.

We don’t think Trump will be perturbed by the news, if fact he is probably overjoyed. The people who should be scared, given the length of the so called Clinton Kill List, a catalogue of people who, having got in the way of Hillary’s ambitions or threatened to dish the dirt of the shady dealings of DC’s dodgiest couple, have died in mysterious circumstances. One shot himself in the head – TWICE, another stabbed himself in the back and a third died in a bizarre gardening accident oh sorry, that was a spinal tap drummer, the Clinton associate I’m thinking of died in a bizarre home gym accident

Call me a conspiracy theorist if you like, my dears, but just think for a moment: even someone as arrogant and lacking self awareness as Hillary Clinton must have understood by now that given her unpopularity with voters and her preceived complete lack of trustworthiness, she is never going to become US President by getting elected. So as the US Constitution decrees that if a president dies in office the vice president automatically takes over, there’s an obvious opportunity for somebody with Hillary’s track record for eliminating obstacles to achieving her ambitions. If I was Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Mike Bloomberg or even one of the also rans, I’d be shitting myself at the though of how little time I might live after being sworn on as president.

Iran Bombing: Trump Says US Not Seeking To Start A War

The assassination of a popular Iranian general in Baghdad could turn out to be the game-changer in the midle east after years of increasing tensions between between the deep state in Washington and the Ayatollahs in Tehran. Until now, mainly due to the looming presence of Iran’s allies Russia and China hostilities have been confined to the proxy war, occasional terrorist outrages such as the attacks on shipping in the gulf and a lot of over the top rhetoric.

The Trump administration has however escalated the situation with with Iran to what is perhaps a point of no return on Friday by ordering a targeted air strike on a convoy leaving Baghdad airport, ostensibly a response to what The White House claims was an organised attack on the US embassy in Iraq by armed militiamen, but looked far more like a planned assassination of Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran’s Quds Force.

(No linked sources here sorry, the information is all from TV news bulletins or internet news feeds not available to non subscribed users – editor)

The Iranian general and some say 2nd most powerful man in the country was blown up along with 11 other people, including a senior commander of an Iraqi militia backed by Tehran, when their motorcade was hit by US guided missiles.

All day world media have speculated about how and when the inevitable Iranian revenge attack would happen. The government in Tehran must respond to the assassination of Soleimani or lose face internationally. Unconfirmed reports tell us Iranian missiles have hit Ain Al-Assad the largest US military base in Iraq. IRGC Telegram news channel reports ‘massive explosions’ at the installation. Bear in mind this is an Iranian domestic news source so information from it should be treated with scepticism until conformed by more reliable agencies.

President Trump on Friday said that America does not seek “regime change” in Iran, and that the United States “took action last night to stop a war” by killing Iran’s #2 commander, Qasem Soleimani, on Thursday.

A similar report came from reporter Sina Toossi who notes that an Iraqi Twitter has posted a picture of the alleged missile attack on al-Ain base, and notes that Iranian outlet Mehr has also reported massive explosions at the Ain al-Assad military base in Iraq’s Anbar province, the largest US military base in the country.

Speaking from Mar-a-Lago one day after the strike, President Trump said that Soleimani “made the death of innocent people his sick passion.”

“We caught him in the act and terminated him,” said Trump, adding that The US is “ready and prepared to take whatever action is necessary.”

“We took action last night to stop a war.”

Leaked email: Senior OPCW Official Orders “Delete All Traces” Of Dissent On Douma Gas Attack Narrative

We have reported here previously that the alleged use of Chemical weapons by forces controlled by Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad against his own people, investigated by the Organisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons  was not unanimously found by investigators to be the work of the Assad regime. The official narrative was designed to justify full scale military intervention by US and NATO forces in Syria’s civil war, but western leaders were dissuaded for this course of action by Russia’s Putin and China’s President Xi.

Later, while the bulk of the investigative panel stick to the script, it was revealed that a minority report actually considered the facts, which pointed to the gas attack on Douma being a false flag attack carried out by forces attached to terrorist group Al Nusra.

Now documents released by Wikileaks expose corruption in the OPCW whose senior officers are exposed as having tried to prevent to minority report going public.

from AlMasdarNews.com,

Wikileaks has released their fourth set of leaks from the OPCW’s Douma investigation, revealing new details about the alleged deletion of important information regarding the fact-finding mission.

“One of the documents is an e-mail exchange dated 27 and 28 February between members of the fact finding mission (FFM) deployed to Douma and the senior officials of the OPCW. It includes an e-mail from Sebastien Braha, Chief of Cabinet at the OPCW, where he instructs that an engineering report from Ian Henderson should be removed from the secure registry of the organisation,” WikiLeaks writes. Included in the email is the following directive:

Please get this document out of DRA [Documents Registry Archive]… And please remove all traces, if any, of its delivery/storage/whatever in DRA.’”

According to Wikileaks, the main finding of Henderson, who inspected the sites in Douma, was that two of the cylinders were most likely manually placed at the site, rather than dropped. Eye witness reports exposed news video of the rescue operation as having been faked.

“The main finding of Henderson, who inspected the sites in Douma and two cylinders that were found on the site of the alleged attack, was that they were more likely manually placed there than dropped from a plane or helicopter from considerable heights. His findings were omitted from the official final OPCW report on the Douma incident,” the Wikileaks report said.

It must be remembered that the U.S. launched an attack on Damascus, Syria on April 14, 2018 over alleged chemical weapons usage by pro-Assad forces at Douma.

Another document released Friday is minutes from a meeting on 6 June 2018 where four staff members of the OPCW had discussions with “three Toxicologists/Clinical pharmacologists, one bioanalytical and toxicological chemist” (all specialists in chemical weapons, according to the minutes).

Shy Tories

by Ian

Once a nerd always a nerd, it is said and while I strenuously deny any similarity with Bill Gates, those weirdos who founded Google and Prof. Brian Cox, I did work in Information Technology for many years and sometimes I like to do a bit of programming for fun. On thing that always amuses me is recrunching the numbers from political polling to try and get a picture of what’s really going on.

And I can tell you the big factor in the outcome of this week’s UK general election is not Brexit, poverty, immigration or tax dodging billionaires. It is shy Tories.

Now OK I know you all think Tories are arrogant, braying posh boys with plangent voices, but polls show most Tory voters do not like to talk about their procilivities. It’s sad really that people feel ashamed of their choices, after all we live in a democracy and you should be able to support who you like without fear or shame.

But the situation is not as bad as in the USA where the most important demographic in the 2020 election will be the shy trumpers, people who are ashamed to admit they are trumpers. It was these people who swung the 2016 election against Hillary Clinton and who will decide the 2020 election.

When you think about this, it’s no wonder so many Americans look like hot air balloons if they’ve been holding in all that flatus since 2016

Enter The Dragon Redux: Hillary Clinton Preparing 2020 Presidential Run?

Authored by James Howard Kunstler via Kunstler.com,

Enter, The Dragon

You’d think Hillary Clinton might come up with a better zinger than “Russian asset” when she flew out of her volcano on leathery wings Friday and tried to jam her blunted beak through Tulsi Gabbard’s heart. Much speculation has been brewing in the Webiverse that the Flying Reptile of Chappaqua might seek an opening to join the Democratic Party 2020 free-for-all. Wasn’t “Russian asset” the big McGuffin in the Mueller Report – the tantalizing and elusive triggering device that added up to nothing — and aren’t most people over twelve years old onto that con by now?

It’s not like Tulsi Gabbard was leading the pack, with two cable news networks and the nation’s leading newspapers ignoring her existence. Tulsi must have been wearing her Kevlar flak vest because she easily fended off the aerial attack and fired back at the squawking beast with a blast of napalm:

     “Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies….”

Ouch! The skirmish does raise the question, though: is the Democratic Party so sick and rotted that it would resort to entertaining Hillary Clinton as the 2020 nominee? Fer sure, I’d say.

Cracks In EU Unity Facade Are Beginning To Show

Coincidental with the bizarre events in the UK’s Supreme Coirt, where judges tried to usurp the power of parliament to themselves in a globaloist bid to stop Brexit, the economic situation in Europe, which as we have reported many times is dire, has entered into a critical period.  With one of the two net contributors o the EU treasury about to leave,Germany, which for decades has propped up the bloc financially as more and more economic basket cases were absorbed into Brussels’ wannabe empire, has stumbled into if not actually a recession then something very like one

Year on Year (YoY) growth in the German economy, from July 2018, July 2019 is 0.4% – what you would expect in the middle of a depression, and significantly less than the official inflation rate (while the real rate of inflation is, predictably, higher still. UK growth figures are slightly better coming in at 1.2%. Poor old Italy recorded a GDP growth of -0.1% YoY, (that’s a minus sign by the way).

Italy has a Debt-to-GDP ratio of 132% and finally France with a growth rate of 1.4% and a debt-to-GDP of 97% is effectively broke. That’s the big four in the EU/Eurozone.

So, the biggest economies in EU/Eurozone have a growth rate ranging from -0.1% to 1.4%. Oh, and I almost forgot negative interest rates are now becoming the norm in The Eurozon and 85% of German Bunds are non-performing and/or at negative interest rates.

Inexplicably the ECB is getting geared up for another round of QE, which means that the euro is going to be devalued. Of course, the Americans aren’t going to be best pleased with this turn of events but doubling down on the policy that failed is par for the course with the EU. Only a few years ago they decided the way to resolve the problem of mass immigration was ………… more mass immigration, and are currently proposing more politicalintegration of member states to counter the resurgence in nationalism triggered by …………….. wait for it ………………. forcing political integration on member states.

By failing to support US trade tariffs on nations that have pissed off Washington, the EU has involved itself peripherally in the US tade war with the world. but this can onlu=y increase problems. Germany in its present economic travails, and lined up to take the biggest economic hit from Brexit, is not going to welcome any increased costs for its export industries.

Most importantly this includes the cost of the raw material essential to Germany’s manufacturing/export sector. Natural Gas and oil are piped to Germany from Russia and the construction the of Nordstream 2 pipeline, which the US wants to alt to put Putin in his place, is crucial to the German economy. America wants to force Germany to buy more expensive, less reliable, Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) by taking alternative suppliers out of the picture and is threatening to impose sanctions on any company and/or state to get their own way.

GERMANY’S ENTSCHEIDUNGSZEIT (DECISION TIME)

This is a clearly a case of “deja vu all over again” and a moment of truth for the Germans. Do they do what the Americans tell them, which would be economic suicide, or will they pursue their national interests and give Uncle Sam the finger. This was precisely the setting in 1985 though with Japan then the object of US financial and economic destabilisation.

The Plaza Accord was a joint-agreement, signed on 22 September 1985, at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, between France, West Germany, Japan, the United States, and the United Kingdom, to devalue the U.S. dollar in relation to the Japanese yen and German Mark. The resulting recessionary impact which pushed up the value of the Yen against the dollar in Japan’s export-dependent economy.

This created an incentive for the expansionary monetary policies that led to the Japanese investment bubble of the late 1980s. The Plaza Accord triggered the Japanese asset price bubble, which progressed into a protracted period of deflation and low growth in Japan known as the first Lost Decade. Has Germany, and by implication Europe learned the lesson one wonders?

Bearing this in mind it should also be noted that Germany is a big investor in Russia.

I’ve Had Many Strange Experiences In My Life” – Inside Epstein’s ‘Honey Trap’ On E 71st Street

The Jeffery Epstein scandal, which was covered up in 2016 to save a certain US presidential candidate the embarrassment of having to explain why her husband was linked to a paedophile ring resurfaced earlier this year and now threatens to blow US politics, on both the Democrat and Republican sides, apart.

Ironically Donald J Trump is about the only leading figure not tainted by association with billionaire Epstein or those who were involved in his sleazy operation. Trump knew Epstein as a fellow buisnessman but has not been named as a visitor to Epstein’s ‘Orgy Island’ Caribbean home – not yet anyway.

Authored by Eric Margolis via EricMargolis.com

I’ve had many strange experiences in my decades of covering intelligence affairs. These run from being invited to KGB HQ in Moscow, Chinese intelligence in Beijing, US intelligence in Virginia, Libyan intelligence in Tripoli, South African intelligence, and even Albanian intelligence in Tirana.

But none was odder than the day I was invited to lunch in New York City with the by now notorious figure Jeffrey Epstein. The golden boy of Manhattan and Palm Beach society now sits in a grim jail cell accused of having sex with underage girls. He’s been doing this in plain view since the early 1990’s but, until recently, he seemed bullet-proof. Continue reading

Why Would Iran Attack Tankers In The Gulf – They Have Nothing To Gain?

Cui bono? Iran has ‘no reason’ to torpedo oil tankers in Gulf of Oman & ‘go to war’
Oil tanker in The Strait of Hormuz, betwen Iran and the United Arab Emirates (Picture source) Reuters / Hamad I Mohammed

Whenever we at Boggart Blog / The Daily Stirrer read or hear of an international incident that raises tensions between east and west and for which the official news story makes no sense at all, all three of us being the kind of old gits whe had to lean Latin at school, ask ourselves “Cui Bono? (who benefits.)” It was not having to learn Latin that made us so cynical but learning about Marcus Tullius Cicero who always began his analysis of political events in Rome by asking that very question.

So I asked myself “who benefits?” on hearing that two oil tankers had been attacked and damaged, and by the time Washington, with is usual incredible alacrity (think of 9/11, flight MH17 and the alleged chemical weapon attacks in Syria for starters,) had accused Iran of being responsible for the attacks I was aware of certain  significant factors not mentioned in mainstream media reports.Despite the lurid accusations from Washington, led by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who accused Iran of attacking the two ships and linking the latest incident to two other recent tanker attacks, drones hitting Saudi oil pumps, and a missile hitting a Saudi airport earlier this week. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was quick to pin the blame for the incident on Iran, claiming that the Islamic Republic was “lashing out” in frustration over Washington’s draconian sanctions regime.

There is absolutely no evidence that the government of Iran is involved. Lack of evidence does not necessarily prove innocence of course, but unsubstantiated accusations do not prove guilt so we should keep our minds open to other possibilities   But if nt Iran then who did this and why? And what does that say will happen next? Logically, it was either Iran, or the US, or a third party:

Iran is suffocating under US sanctions, it is a known instigator of such actions via proxies, and has been threatening the EU that it will walk away from the nuclear deal if they won’t help it break the US economic stanglehold. An attack like this would be incredibly stupid (as stupid as Syria’s President Assad launching illegal chemical weapons attacks on rebel held areas when his forces were on the brink of crushing the IsIS rebellion,) … unless they are desperate enough to give The White House an excuse to attack, hoping the Trump adminidtration will back down with the 2020 elections looming and the president’s core voters being averse to further humiliations in the middle east.  If that is the case there will be more provocations even as Iran calls this all “beyond suspicious”, “economic terrorism”, and “sabotage diplomacy”.

The US is divided between neo-cons champing at the bit to take on Tehran, war-averse Trump and the isolationist voters who put him in power, and a Pentagon now looking at China and Russia as the real threat. CENTCOM has said a war with Iran is not in the US strategic interest – and after the humiliation of Syria it clearly isn’t. Donald Trump is no fool, no matter what bitter Hillary Clinton supporters say about him. Sure he’s a loudmouth, an egomaniac, and a crass, bombastic bully, but he is not stupid enough to order an attack on Iran, a far more militarily powerful nation than Syria, and equally good buddies with China and Russia.

Third parties ‘state – actors’ to use the words of Secretary Pompeo, are in short supply. Mainstream media will no doubt follow murky social media to point a finger at the Saudis and Israelis but would either want to precipitate a major regional war that would drag them in or would they prefer to sit back and watch sanctions destroy Iran’s economy?

‘Why would Iran do it?’

Tehran has nothing to gain from attacking the oil tankers, defense analyst and retired Lt. General Amjad Shoaib said.

“Why would Iran do it? They have no reason to go to war and they have no reason to escalate the situation,” he stressed.

Tehran has adamantly denied any involvement. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif described the incident as highly suspicious given that it occurred on the day Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe arrived in Tehran, according to mainstram reports to act as a mediator in a bid to ease tensions between Iran and the USA. He added that Washington’s evidence-free accusations are designed to “sabotage” Iran’s diplomatic efforts.

According to reports from India, Iran and Japan however though the possibility of Japanese mediation has been discussed there is no plan for Abe to mediate between Iran and the U.S.” ISNA reported.

A member of the Iran’s foreign policy committee also made similar remarks, saying Abe’s trip is not aimed at playing a mediatory role between Iran and the United States.

“The aim of the visit is to expand bilateral relations,” Alaeddin Boroujerdi told Mehr news agency on Monday. “In the years that followed the [Islamic] Revolution, Iran and Japan have enjoyed good relations.”

Boroujerdi said. “The talk of mediation is mere speculation and is not true.”

According to Boroujerdi, Israel is afraid of Japan’s cooperation with Iran and therefore is making efforts to undermine this development.

Though the official line is that the tankers were damaged by mines, Japanese firm, Kokuka Sangyo Co, said on Friday that its tanker had been attacked by two “flying objects” but that there was no damage to the ship’s cargo of methanol.

Added to that is the fact of Iran’s rescue operation which lifted 44 sailors from the two tankers, ‘Front Altair’ and ‘Kokuka Courageous, which could feasibly have been an attempt to divert suspicion after the attack on  the two vessels. Similarly pictures produced by Washington purporting to show Iranian military personnel removing an unexploded mine from one of the tankers begs the question why would Iran do such a thing if it was behind the attack.

Kourosh Shamlou, an attorney and Middle East specialist commented that it would be completely illogical for Iran to quite literally torpedo such a historic summit, especially since doing so would play into the hands of Washington’s anti-Iran hawks.

“I’m an attorney. You have to know for whom a crime is beneficial. We can see the geopolitical situation of Iran and the US in the Persian Gulf. We can say that the Iranians are not going to torpedo a ship that will lead to the Americans attacking them. It’s going to give the Americans an excuse to attack Iran. So it cannot be the Iranians.”

In fact, the incident has already had negative economic consequences for Iran, Hamed Mousavi, professor of political science at the University of Tehran and visiting professor at Carleton University, noted on RT.

“Iran’s currency lost five percent of its value today just because of talk of escalating tensions as well as perhaps the possibility of war. I think right now Iran wants to de-escalate the situation with the United States,” said Mousavi.

Conspiracy theory’

It’s not surprising that media outlets are dutifully relaying Pompeo’s accusations against Iran without questioning his logic – or asking for evidence, commented political analyst Shabbir Razvi. He has a point, that is exactly what they did in the case of all Assad’s alleged atrocities, the shooting down of Flight MH17 over Ukraine, the Boston marathon bombers and most other recent outrages.

Razvi stressed that without evidence, it would be irresponsible of Washington – or anyone else – to put forward theories about who was responsible for the attack. However, there’s at least one country that has a documented history of fabricating scenarios to justify military action, Shamlou noted.

“All of a sudden, an accident happens, and [the United States] starts saying ‘it’s the Vietnamese, it’s the Iraqis, it’s the Iranians.’ And then they have a legitimate cause for their people to attack.”

A Non State Actor?

Now I am as sceptical about blaming the USA for every mishap as I am about blaming Russia, China, Israel, Iran or Bogmondorovia (I just made up that name,) for everything that happens. People in Washington have said the attack was too sophisticated and too well organised to be the work of terrorists, only governments would have the human and material resources to organise and execute such an operation. But are they?

On Monday last week, crude oil prices tanked to below $50 per barrel, and driven down by the threat of global recession, some frankly silly commitments by desperate politicians to phase out fossil fuels by 2050, the effects of the esacalating trade war between the USA and China, a less developed threat of a trade war between the USA and EU, threatened to go as low as $40 per barrel. This caused quite a lot of consternation in oil producing states and also among oil extraction companies and processing companies.

And oil companies are the largest customer of paramilitary private security contractors. Oil companies have the finances to mount very sophisticated operations while paramilitary security contractors, recruiting from the elite forces of US, British, French, Australian and who knows what other armies have the personnel capable of carrying out sophisticated covert operations. So on Monday the price of crude oil bombs, Tuesday sees panic in the oil markets and among oil producing nations and oil companies, on Wednesday two tankers get hit in one of the busiest waterways on the planet, a vital route for oil from the Gulf States to the west. And almost immediately oil prices jump, wiping out recent losses.

Join up the dots as they saying goes. Cone on, it isn’t hard – there are only two dots to join. And if you get stuck ask yourself “Cui Bono?” Who benefits from the threat of war in the world’s largest oil producing nations, whose profit margins will be boosted by an oil famine, whose future prospects would be boosted by reminding the world, amid all the talk of sustainable, clean energy, just how dependent on oil our civiliation is?

Pro-war trolls resort to smears as their ‘rebels’ lose miserably in Syria

Bureaucrats, Politicians and media talking heads who have consistently supported military intervention in Syria, and championed Obama’s stated aim, that the priority was not to defeat ISIS terrorists but to remove the Assad rgime have gone apeshit following the collapse of the rebels final strongholds.

Is World War Three Really Kicking Off This Time?

The airstrikes by a US led coalition that killed many Syrian soldiers fighting for the legitimate government of Bashar al Assad against the terrorist forces of ISIS has raised the level of hostile rhetoric between the USA / NATO coalition and the Russia / China / Iran alliance. The likelihood of war seemed to have receded through the summer, after it seemed possible early this year, that one stray shell or bullet could spread the war beyond the middle east.

Only 5 Percent Of Russian Air Strikes Hitting Islamic, British Defence Secretary Lies

After an amazing outburst from the delusional Brack Obama left the United Nations General Assembly in stunned silence because Obama has accused Russia and China of all the recent breaches of international law of which the USA is demonstably guilty, the propaganda departments of western governments seem to have totally lost their grip on reality.

Have US tactics only helped to make ISIS more powerful?/b>

We have questioned the US led efforts to defeat ISIS in the middle east many times, pointing out that every time the western alliance steps up opposition to the establishment of a news Islamic Caliphate, Islamic State seem to get stronger. ‘Conspiracy Theorists’, our critics yell. So let’s look at opinion from around the world that concurs with ours.

 

EU and US talk of war with Russia

 

The European People’s Party (EPP) the largest political group in the European Parliament, nominated Luxemourgeois nonentity and alcoholic (allegely) Jean-Claude Juncker as President of the European Commission. The party has the support of some of Europe’s most powerful leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Made up largely of centre Social Democrat parties and centre right Christian Democrats they command an automatic majority in any vote taken by the European Parliament and are unerringly federalist, globalist and anything but democratic.

And they are unerringly supportive of America’s efforts to start a war with Russia.

“The time of talk and persuasion with Russia is over,” MEP and Vice-President of the European People’s Party (EPP) Jacek Saryusz-Wolski told a meeting of the European Parliament on Tuesday, 21 April, “Now it’s time for a tough policy, a realistic policy, and concentration on defence and security, because the eastern flank of the EU feels vitally, existentially threatened.”

Has Everybody Forgotten Obama’s War

The American military machine has just chalked up the grim statistic of its 2,000th fatality since America troops first surged into Afganistan to defeat “insurgents” whose families had lived in that country for many generations. The invasion was justifed in the aftermath of September 11 by the myth that Afghanistan was a …

Ignore The warmongering Left’s Calls For Intervention In Syria

Morons to the right of me, idiots to the left. What are us libertarians to do as we find ourselves in our customary position, clinging to a raft of common sense as we try to navigate a course through a sea of insanity. My stance on the trouble spots of the middle east has always been the same, firmly non interventionist and I am not shifting as the propaganda …

Syrian Rebels Say West Is Already Aiding Thier Uprising.

We conclude that Obama wants World War 3. …

Israeli officials say they won’t warn the U.S. if they decide to launch a pre-emptive strike against Iranian nuclear facilities, a U.S. intelligence official familiar with the discussions has ytold Associated Press.

Do Your Research? Why? Research Is Overrated.

“Do your research?” seems to be the latest fashion on internet comment threads for trying to undermine sombody’s contribution without actually being able to write a rebuttal or construct an argument challenging what they have offered. It has replaced “Do the math,” or the rather silly “Do the science,” but like them only shows the person using it is sadly deficient in rhetorical skills.

I came across an article today which employed the “do your research” technique without actually using thise words. It was about the appointment to the US Supreme Court of Justice Kavanaugh, and the attempt to block his elevation by a woman named Christine Blasey Ford, who accused the judge of sexually assaulting her over 30 years ago at a student drinking party. Blasey Ford could not remember the date or location of the alleged offence, nor could she produce any witnesses to back her allegation, in fact those she named as witnesses denied any knowledge of an offence having taken place. As the US Supreme Court is not important to us in Britain this story serves as an illustration of how people on the internet, on TV and Radio news and in the newspapers try to manipulate opinion.

In an article titled “Ford Wins Credibility Battle but Not The War” the author argues that tratification of Kavanaugh’s appointment should have been blocked because Blasey Ford was a more credible witness. Using the usual liberal / left wing trick of stating his opinion as if it is an uncentastable fact he cited Kavanaugh’s answers to three questions put to him by senator Joe Kennedy (yeas one of The Kennedy’s but not one of The Dead Kennedys,)

The three questions and Kavanaugh’s answers were:

Kennedy asked Kavanaugh to swear before God and country to a series of questions he was about to ask him.

Kavanaugh agreed to do so.

First, Kennedy asked Kavanaugh if he had sexually assaulted Ford. Kavanaugh responded with what he perceived to be evidence that he did not do it. It was a Democratic conspiracy to destroy his reputation.

Next Kavanaugh was asked if he had violated Ms. Ramirez. He answered with more of what he considered proof that he did not do it. Again, it was an allegation orchestrated by the Democrats.

Third, he was asked if he had exposed his penis to a third woman. Again, Kavanaugh offered what he considered evidence that he did not do this act. Namely, it was a conspiracy made up by a porn actress’s lawyer.

The problem with Kavanaugh’s answers to Sen. Kennedy is that a truthful answer would have been a simple yes or no.

Had Kavanaugh looked Kennedy in the eyes and answered no, I would have graded him as equally credible or more credible than Ford. He did not. I believe Dr. Ford and not Judge Kavanaugh.

How does this relate to “Do your research?”

What the writer is asking us to do here is believe his version of the exchange instead of doing our research. Kennedy’s questions, taken out of context and without reference to what had been said previously still do not lead an unbiased person to concur with the author’s opinion. In fact Kavanaugh had already denied the allegations many times, and in rhetorical terms he is refusing here to dignify the most lurid version of Blasey Ford’s accusation with a denial. It is moot to suggest Kavanaugh failed to provide proof that he did not perpetrate the acts he is accused of, in legal terms it is impossible to prove a negative and therefore the burden of proof rests on the accuser.

Christine Blasey Ford, a Democratic Party activist, a vociferous critic of Donald Trump (who appointed Kavanaugh to the supreme court, an appointment that was seen as hugely damaging to the Democratic Party, and a feminist, did not report the assault at the time it is alleged to have taken place, or mention it for thirty years as Kavanaugh rose through the ranks of the US judicial system to its pinnacle. That in itself, and the timing of her accusation should arouse suspicion about her credibility. But to liberals, interested only in disrupting the Trump presidency it doesn’t.

And had the author done his research, he would have known that Blasey Ford, far from being the credible adversary in this case, was, according to classmates, not the shy ingenue she and her supporters claimed but an enthusiastic party girl and something of a raver. In fact the college yearbook for that year makes an oblique reference to her reputation. So while it is likely that someone did once push their genitals in her face at a party, it is also understandable that she might have trouble remembering who and at what party.

Such cheap tricks are how politics is played now. If only people who say (or imply,) “Do your research,” would first do their research.
