Did Russia Shoot Down US Missiles In Syria

When President Trump ordered a missile strike on a Syrian military airbase in retaliation for the alleged chemical weapon incident near the ISIS HQ town Raqqa (an obvious false flag incident) a few days earlier, of the fifty nine Tomahawk missiles launched from US navy ships, only thirty six made landfall. The missiles that reached their target did some damage but the air base, used by aircraft of the Syrian government and planes from Russia, was operational again within hours.

So what happened to the thirty six misslies that disappeared? Maybe Jonathan Roth of RiskHedge  learned the answer during an exclusive video interview with Dr. Theodore Karasik, a senior advisor to Gulf State Analytics. The geopolitical analyst says there is an alternate story making the rounds about the United States’ April 7 missile strike on Syria’s Shayrat Airbase in response to the Syrian regime’s alleged use of sarin gas on its own people.

“Not all missiles made their target,” says Dr.  Karasik, “There were supposed to be 60. One malfunctioned on one of the ships. 36 made target, the remainder did not. And, there’s a question of where did they go?”

Dr. Karasik, a former senior political scientist in the International Policy and Security Group at RAND Corporation, spent the last decade in the Middle East and retains an extensive network in the region.

“The missing [missiles] were either brought down by S-300 battery or were taken over by Russian electronic jamming and were plunged into the sea,” explains Dr. Karasik. “Now, this alternative theory means that the US and Russia have already clashed if you will—technically—with the use of the TLAMs (Tomahawk missiles) and then being intercepted or taken over by Russian control.”

If true, this means the US and Russia have had a direct military confrontation for the first time in decades.

“This is very important,” says Dr. Karasik, “because it illustrates that we’ve had our first encounter with the Russians, and that sets the stage for potentially future encounters between Washington and Russia on the Syrian battlefield.”

In addition, the rationale for the missile strike in the first place—Bashar al-Assad’s sarin gas attack on his own people—may be based on faulty intelligence.

“Apparently, the location of the attack itself is in an industrial area where there are a lot of toxic industrial chemicals located,” says Dr. Karasik. “The attack on this location produced a toxic cloud that was deadly enough, obviously, to kill and maim hundreds. The issue here is that in this particular attack, where this industrial gas was released, this is not in any way related to a sarin-type attack.”

Dr. Karasik says sarin is an odorless agent while victims complained they smelled an odor. He also explains that medics who were treating the victims were not properly dressed to handle sarin gas.

“Yes, there was an industrial toxic agent that killed and maimed people,” says Dr. Karasik. “But, whether or not it was sarin still has not been proven.”

This alternative theory is coming from a number of different places, according to Dr. Karasik, including sources in Washington, the Gulf region, and Russia.

Russel Brand Anti Bankers Documentary Funded By Bankers

It’s taken the avid publicity seeker Russell Brand less than twelve months to go from channeling wealthy, elitist leftie Tony Benn to channeling capitalist’s conscience money into his own growing bank account. Russel Brand’s journey from comedy leftie to hypocritical twat has been quicker than any before.

from The Daily Telegraph

When Russell Brand wanted to film himself confronting bankers about their bonuses, he chose to storm RBS, regarding the bank as the very embodiment of the capitalist system he so despises.

But, not for the first time, Brand has left himself open to accusations of hypocrisy after it emerged the film company he set up is largely funded by City investors – including a former RBS banker.

Brand raised almost £1 million by issuing shares in Mayfair Film Partnership Ltd, the production company making his next film, a documentary called Brand which will explore his ideas on the redistribution of wealth.

At least 11 of the 21 main investors in the company are current or former employees of banks or other financial institutions, while a 12th is a pension fund.

They were all able to claim tax relief by offsetting the money they invested in the shares against their income tax, as part of a government scheme to attract investment in high risk start-up companies.


Death by Burger – Torture Or Game Show

Todays surprise news story was an item about Japanese cops being forced to eat fifteen burgers at at time to fatten toughen them up. What kind of crazy idea is it that eating burgers will toughen people up. It’s the kind of thing the Japanese do for fun or to win prizes.

Anyone remember Endurance, the Japanese game show regularly featured on Clive James On Television. Clive’s sardonic comments and references to the “screaming front man” were the perfect counterpoint to scences of people willingly allowing themselves to be subjected to: starvation and then forced to watch as tasty dinners were served to dogs; being sprayed with ice cold water from high pressure hoses, eating raw sheeps brains overseasoned with tabasco while standing on their heads; sit in a bath of cockroaches; hit in the bollocks with a cannonball and more bizarre tests, some as painful as being forced to listen to Bruce Forsyth telling jokes.

Compared to those things, eating fifteen burgers is a piece of cake (unless you are allergic to cake of course)

Remind yourself of the fun and excitement of Endurance by watching this video, or checkout the search listing below. These people make the idiots behind Jackass look like a bunch of pussies.

Submarine surfaces in city street – video

The story on an American spoof news sites says a submarine surfaced in a city street in Milan shortly after scientists at CERN ran an experiment in accelerating sub atomic particles to above light speed.

Just for interest I would love to know which film it is clipped from.

Zey haff vays of making you konform.

Here’s a snippet from “Government Slaves” website:

‘According to recent Nielsen statistics 56% of the households in the US own a video game console. Unbeknownst to many Americans this can be an open invitation to let big brother into your house.

Disguised as a video game add-on, Microsoft’s Kinect is the all seeing eye that sits on top of your TV watching your every move, listening to every conversation and even monitoring vital health information.

Now imagine if the Government went door to door and wanted to put a black box on top of your TV (and I’m not talking about your cable box) that did the same things, hopefully you would tell them hell no and immediately get out of your house.

But since the Kinect is disguised as entertainment most people will gladly accept it.’

I’m Too Sexy For My Shalwar Kameez

“I’m too sexy for my shirt, so sexy it hurts,” not me you understand, I’m well past it, but Right Said Fred in their 1991 hit “I’m too sexy”. For those too young to remember the video is embedded below.

Omar Borkan Al Gala, a smouldering poet, actor, and photographer from Dubai, who may or may not be too sexy for his Shalwar Kameez (I’ll leave that to the girls to judge) is definitely too sexy for Saudi Arabia where sex has not been invented yet. He has been deported by Saudi authorities who feared that he and a couple more alleged hotties would encourage the medieval Kingdom’s women to have impure thoughts.


The three men, all from the United Arab Emirates are said to have been removed from the Jenadrivah Heritage & Culture Festival in Riyadh because they were “too handsome”.

Women, and some men, across the world have been longing for a glimpse of the criminallly good looking men and the internet has identified Al Gala as one.

Omar, who appears to be wearing eye-liner in many of his Facebook glamour shots, (bet that goes down like a lead Zeppelin in Saudi) posted a link to an article about the deportation with the comment: “This is what written in newspapers in over the world :)”

Well you can’t blame him for blowing his own trumpet, especially when Saudi girls would be beheaded if they did it for him.

It isn’t proof but the post set off a stampede of speculation, which Al Gala has done nothing to discourage. Well why should he, the fame could earn him a fortune.

New Toilet Computer Game Will Really Piss People Off

Digital games colsole and game maker Sega is hoping to make a spash by nstalling video games in men’s toilets. It could only happen in Japan of course: the firm is planning to install game consoles called “Toylets” at urinals for men in bars around the country.

Each stall in the wired bog will be fitted fitted with a pressure sensor, a company spokesman said, and a screen is mounted on the wall above the unit.

Players can choose from five games, which are interspersed with advertisements for products and services.

Sega hopes that users of the lavatories will pay more attention to the adverts if they can also play games while using the facilities. We forsee a lot more people will be pissing on their shoe of getting punched for pissing down the leg of the guy at the next stall.

But isn’t it a sad comment on the world we live in when greedy corporate fascists are trying to make a cash cow of those innocent boyhood games like who could get it highest and who could write their name on the cement render, (being called Ian gave me a big advantage. Poor Arbruthnot didn’t have a chance.) Other games included trying to stand with our backs to the far wall and land our stream in the gutter, or not using any hands.

I can’t quite see how Sega’s zap the crittur type games will be compatible with having a wee but they’re a strange lot, the Japanese, I suppose the country will be gripped by a urolagnia craze. On an LCD screen where that little picture of a bee used to be placed, an image of a girl with unfeasibly large breasts will dodge around the labyrinthine vaults of a lost city as you try to blast her.
