WORLD SHOCKED BY THIS BETRAYAL! TURKEY’S RADAR SYSTEM PROTECTING ISRAEL FROM GAZA ROCKETS

MISSILE SHIELD  in so called Islamic Erdogan Govenment TURKEY is protecting zionists from Gaza Rockets!

Almost 40% of the Palestinians are homeless, all of them hungry, nearly 1300 heavily injured, 190 dead… This is the heavy price of defending their own country from the illegitimate regime occupying the holy lands. It has been seven days so far. No one can sleep in Gaza. Could you image the pain they suffer in the Holy month of RAMADAN.

They are inhuman zionists, we know them. But unfortunately we do not know the Muslim FACED zionists transmitting data of resistance rocket, betraying the whole Ummah. Yes, they seem to be friends of Muslims but in fact they are more zionist and inhuman than Ariel Sharon as they betray and deceive the sincere feelings of Muslim Turks.

The Missile shield set up in Malatya/Kürecik town in 2012 has been functioning and sending signals to zionists since that year. The radar station has been established under the pretext of Syria crisis to save Turkey(!) from the missiles coming from Syria(!). After a short while the allegations uncovering the fact that radar base was in fact established to save terrorist regime from a possible war with Resistance Groups surrounding the occupied territories.

To save the terror regime or to protect Turkey from the very unlikely Syria attack?

Although the experts declared clear opinions about the impossibility of intercepting and preventing any possible attack from Syria, people seemed to believe that Radar System is not for israel’s interests and security as Erdogan government redesigned the public opinion that the system will certainly be controlled by NATO forces.

Coordination of the system tested and approved

Defense News Magazine known US Defense news magazine reported that israel has tested the Iron Dome aerial defense system and as a result of these tests, the system was integrated with the Radar Base in Turkey. The magazine also stated that the defense system was really tested in real life situation on November 20, 2012 in the attack conducted by HAMAS. The rockets were intercepted and signals from the radar base were sent to the iron dome control unit in israel and the threat was eliminated through the signals sent from Turkey’s Kürecik. In the previous trials the Blue Sparrow Missiles sent by israeli jets were simultaneously intercepted and the protecting system eliminating the missile worked properly. In this drills both the coordination and and data tarnsfer between Kürecik and iron dome was tested.

israeli soldiers were in the radar base

The radar system creating conflict between Iran and Turkey was established under the umbrella of NATO but in fact it was for the forthcoming war started by israel. Defence Minister İsmet Yılmaz denied the the fact that zionist soldiers were in the radar base and controlling the radar unit.

Erdogan’s ONE MINUTE SHOW

After the one minute show everybody supposed Erdogan a real anti-zionist politician. The facts revealed shortly after the establishment of the radar system and after he introduced himself as the co-chairman of BIG MIDDLE EAST PROJECT.2008 Hezbollah, 2009 Hamas victories against israel obliged israel friendly puppet regimes find a protective umbrella for israel. The most challenging issue which was more complicated than preventing resistance rockets was the ammunition flow provided from Syria.

It seems that the weapons coming from Iran through Syria has not been prevented yet. InshaAllah, all the world understand why Assad and Maliki regimes were attacked by global terrorists all over the world and how Syrian people paid the bill with their life and destruction of the whole country as a price of supporting resistance in Palestine.

Why the International Airport of Tripoli Closed down for three days.


Why the International Airport of Tripoli Closed down for three days.

We all know that Libya after the illegal war in 2011 is NOT the great success as declared by Obama but is a failed state that is a fact. What the Western Media neglects to report is that all Libyans are struggling against the ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS brought in by NATO, F.UK.US, QATAR, U.A.E. and SAUDI ARABIA. Before I conclude this article about the closing of the International airport of Tripoli, I would like to reiterate for my readers what has happened since the end of the ILLEGAL War up to and including today’s incident. 

The Israeli agreement signed and sealed by the phony entity NTC (National Transitional Council), which was put in place by NATO and F.UK.US to rule Libya forever.  This document gave the Mossad a permanent base of operations in the green mountain area of Libya. When I first tweeted this document other reporters (I do not claim to be a reporter just an activist and a fighter for the liberation of my country from the colonization done illegally by the west) tried to mock me by saying it is a false document and No Western Media has published it therefore, it does not exist.  This agreement was signed in Afghanistan. Here is the link which confirms: “The tribe’s security got this document from their people inside and I believe it came out of Afghanistan.” The document is written in Hebrew and is an agreement between the NATO puppet rebels and Israel. The agreement stated that Israel will arm and train the rebels until they take over Libya at which time Israel will be allowed to build a military base in the green mountain area in the east of Libya.“Israel-involvement-fake-revolution.  All of these conditions are being met and the location has been secured for Israel.

We the Libyan people are a very straight forward people. We were never fanatics about religion or politics. What we desire is security for our family, a good job, a home we could call our own and the ability to travel abroad. This we had before NATO blew up our country.  So what changed? Well the Illegal war for one, the imported mercenaries from Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, U.A.E, Turkey, Syria, Palestine, Tunis, Algiers, Kuwait, Iraq, Jordan, America, Israel, England and France. Now the F.UK.US are using the uneducated-poor in Libya as their patsies because they are cheaper than their own troops. They import these uneducated-poor-mercenaries whenever they want to overthrow a legitimate government. Any Arab country that does not voluntarily comply with the commands of the “one world order” Zionists is invaded. Here is a formal confirmation supporting my earlier statements about the mercenaries who are Al Qaeda: The Database Shortly before his untimely death, former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook told the House of Commons that “Al Qaeda” is not really a terrorist group but a database of international mujaheddin and arms smugglers used by the CIA and Saudis to funnel guerrillas, arms, and money into Soviet-occupied Afghanistan”. Courtesy of World Affairs, a journal based in New Delhi, WMR can bring you an important excerpt from an Apr.-Jun. 2004 article by Pierre-Henry Bunel, a former agent for French military intelligence.

“I first heard about Al-Qaida while I was attending the Command and Staff course in Jordan. I was a French officer at that time and the French Armed Forces had close contacts and cooperation with Jordan . . .

“Two of my Jordanian colleagues were experts in computers. They were air defense officers. Using computer science slang, they introduced a series of jokes about students’ punishment.

“For example, when one of us was late at the bus stop to leave the Staff College, the two officers used to tell us: ‘You’ll be noted in ‘Q eidat il-Maaloomaat’ which meant ‘You’ll be logged in the information database.’ Meaning ‘You will receive a warning . . .’ If the case was more severe, they would used to talk about ‘Q eidat i-Taaleemaat.’ Meaning ‘the decision database.’ It meant ‘you will be punished.’ For the worst cases they used to speak of logging in ‘Al Qaida.’

 The west has plans for us Libyans: Africa is a land mass that is a little more than 3 times the size of the United States.  The Africans north and south of Sahara must unite. The permanent tactic of the Europeans in general, and the British, in particular, is to divide and conquer. This is the standard operating procedure of imperialist/Zionists.  In Libya, the Zionist had been planning for decades to exploit the traditional Arab Libya.  I abhor the Zionist vision of Libya as a racist state. The Zionists invision the creation of Libya as a racist State, in the same way as South Africa was once a racist State. Number one fear of the Zionists has always been the unification all of Africa.

So now you have a better picture of what is happening in Libya. Libya is now being occupied by imported terrorist groups brought in, trained and financed by ISRAEL, USA, FRANCE AND BRITAIN: Al-Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood, Ansar Sharaia, Misurata/Jewish Racist Rat Brigade and Daash which is under Abdelhakim Belhaj.  Belhaj is the only one who is a Libyan but he was in exile because Islamic Extremists were forbidden in Libya under the past government. Belhaj carries a BRITISH passport and has been caught with many other professionally prepared phony passports.  He was living in England when the US decided it was time to sent him back to Libya as a gift to the legitimate Jamahiriya government, but it was a trap. The US used all its influence with the UN to force the Jamahiriya government (for HUMANITARIAN REASONS) to release all prisoners in Libya who were claimed to be political prisoners but were in fact radical Islamist terrorists. All of those released were associated with Al Qaeda, Libyan Islamic fighting group (LIFG), and other extremist groups,  all of whom originate from the east Libyan town of Derna. The legitimate Jamahiriya government complied with this demand even though it was against the better judgment of the Late Leader. He capitulated with the UN demand because he was promised more freedoms in world business for the Libyan people.  The last prisoner was released in the first week of February 2011. This coincided with the resignation of Mustapha Abdeljalil from his job with the legitimate Libyan government.  

 Do you think this was a coincidence? I don’t think so!

Everything had been planned to the last detail. The master-planners did not calculate the HUMAN factor, this being that the Libyan people loved their country and supported their government by a factor of 85%. Libya is an ancient culture with one of the strongest support for family units in the world.  Those values are upheld by the tribal structure.  Libyan people are typically non confrontational, they enjoy strong belief in their God, but protect the every religion based on a book.  These are all the things that the Zionists cannot allow. They attempted to split Libya into THREE pieces to be shared with England, United States and France. This is why you see the attempt at forced independence of CYRENAICA which is Benghazi. Second division to be an area of the minority of the Amazigh or Tamazight known as Berbers; they are scattered between the regions of Zawiyah, Nalut and Gharyan. The area of northwest to be called TRIPOLITANIA and lastly the extremists want to make the city of Derna a radical Islamic emirate.  I have attached a map of Libya so that you can see the divisions.

Tribes Legend the numbers attached to the names of the tribes,  which connects to the map above.

When Benghazi tried to get its independence as Cyrenaica the rest of the Libyan population went against them, you can go to the archives of this blog to find more information. 

The Libyan people do not want to be divided, we do not want to live in fear, we do not want our wives and daughters raped. We are sick and tired from the 240 foreign & national militia’s who are financed by NATO/CIA/MOSSAD to cause chaos in Libya. We are sick with worry for all of our beloved sisters and brothers being illegally detained in militia-controlled detention centers, living under inhumane conditions. These centers are holding nearly 40,000 people without access to the justice system, and some 2 million civilians still remain forcibly displaced  or in exile as a result of the illegal war in 2011.

Since NATO began its destruction of Libya in March 2011until today, I don’t think any legitimate Libyan has had a peaceful night.  The legitimate Libyan people suffered continuous bombings for 8 months during the NATO attacks in 2011 (I am surprised any of us are still alive). After NATO accomplished the destruction of Libya it left 250,000 psychopathic mercenaries to finish the destruction of Libya. These mercenaries formed militias (armed gangs). These militias are always fighting each other and of course there is collateral damage.  In April of 2014, the calculated death toll since NATO started its destruction of Libya is over 600,000; most were civilians.

As I stated before the master-planners failed to calculate the Human factor – the love of our country. Today there is a Green Resistance and day by day it’s getting stronger as more Libyans are realizing or waking up and joining the resistance against the militias and the foreign occupiers. The tribes in exile are assisting were ever they can to help the resistance. Many “self exiled” Libyans are returning to assist. Each and every one of us is giving a helping hand.  We will never stop loving our country even if we have to die to save it.

On the 12th of this month there was a meeting with the main militias to decide who control’s what. After the militias agreed they shook their hands and left. The Misurata militia, Tajoura, Janzour brigade 27, Souk Juma and Daash initiated an attack on the 13th of July, against the Zintan tribal fighters and the International airport of Tripoli. The reason for this attack was because the Daash militia which belongs to Belhaj, lost control of the military airport called Mitiga. Belhaj’s control of Mitiga allowed Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the UAE to smuggle arms, alcohol and money into Libya.  In return, Belhaj and his crew would repay them with Human trafficking of children and women.  With the loss of Mitiga airport to the government,  Belhaj and his criminal associates are left with only one airport in Misurata which is not sufficient for all their illegal activities. These militia’s are attempting to put Tripoli under siege, but as I said before the Human factor is always foiling their schemes.  The Zintan tribe, although they are not my favorite tribe, are probably the most proficient Libyan fighters, they are more humane and apparently they do love Libya. They are always on alert. When the “militia mafia” fighters of Misurata, Daash, Tajoura, Zanjur , Souk Juma  attacked the Zintan, they were in for a very big surprise, they were soundly beaten back.

Many thanks for the editing of the above article by J. Moriarty 

“We are publishing the reports of the secret security officers of the Libyan intelligence regarding the meetings of the Muslim Brotherhood and the armed mafia in collaboration with the terrorist elements from Daash (Belhaj). This report shows the brutal schemes (collusion) of these criminals to attack the legitimate Libyan army who are working to bring back the dignity and security of Libya. A copy of their plan has been leaked and we have posted it below. This report shows what is happening today in Tripoli because of NATO’s illegal actions in 2011and its results in detail. A copy of the original plan was delivered to the head of Libyan intelligence by hand.”

Libya, ALBA and the West: Humanity’s Choice Between Cooperative Solidarity and Murderous Competition


alfatah69:

In September 2013, the Belfer Center of Harvard University published a study confirming that NATO’s war on Libya was based on downright falsehoods. In June this year the US authorities announced data indicating that the economy contracted 2.9% in the first quarter. In the same month Facebook admitted accusations that it had abused its system so as to carry out an unauthorized experiment in mass psychological manipulation of its users

But no one in the NATO countries concerned is facing trial in the International Criminal Court for the criminal aggression against Libya. Stock market prices continue at high levels and the financial media say, six years after the international financial system collapsed in 2008, that the recovery is “gaining traction”. The millions of Facebook users continue to use that social network as if nothing has happened presumably because it has become such an integral part of their daily routine.

The connection between these diverse apparently unrelated events is that they show the integral corruption of the criminal system of Western capitalism. No matter where one looks. In international relations, in the United Nations, in the economy, in the financial system, in intellectual life, in the communications media, in sports bodies like FIFA or the International Olympic Committee, corruption is everywhere. Virtually every area of public policy is perverted so as to benefit corporate elites.

In Western media, innumerable liberal and progressive analysts express an almost neurotic longing for change. The academic and media phenomenon of Thomas Piketty’s study of capitalism openly acknowledges the social and economic injustice of capitalism. The media phenomenon of Edward Snowden explicitly recognizes the routine abuse on a massive scale about which many other people before Snowden had raised the alarm for decades.

Few have noted the paradox that these media phenomena are generated by the self-same inert broken system that Snowden and Piketty criticize. Far from being a virtuous demonstration of democracy, essentially what Piketty and Snowden and their promoters are saying comes down to something like, “Sure, the system’s broken but if we tighten a nut here and a bolt there the machinery will work again just fine”. Or perhaps, if the Princess could only overcome her revulsion and kiss the toad everyone could live happily ever after. Real human history has been very different.

Human history prior to 1945 was one of a century and a half of bitter struggle by untold millions of women and men around the world against the sadistic cruelty and injustice of genocidal Western capitalism. That long history of struggle achieved a few positive results at end of the Second World War, including the start of decolonization and recognition of the right to self-determination. One can argue that those changes have helped the majority world to resist in some degree since 1990 the persistent surges of aggression by the Western powers trying to defend their residual global domination.

In recent years, Libya has been the most representative case of North American and European sadism and hypocrisy. The opportune study in 2013 by Alan Kuperman of Harvard University’s Belfer Center concludes : “Libya’s 2011 uprising was never peaceful, but instead was armed and violent from the start. Muammar al-Qaddafi did not target civilians or resort to indiscriminate force.” Kuperman adds, “NATO’s action magnified the conflict’s duration about sixfold, and its death toll at least sevenfold, while also exacerbating human rights abuses, humanitarian suffering, Islamic radicalism, and weapons proliferation in Libya and its neighbors.

While there has been wide recognition of the deceit-based failure of the wars against Afghanistan and Iraq, not for nothing have few admitted the disastrous failure of the war against Libya. More than any other recent conflict, the sadistic aggression against Libya revealed the falsity not just of Western governments and corporate media but also of Western alternative media, progressive intellectuals and progressive movements. Along the whole length of the Western political spectrum the most distinguished political academic and intellectual leaders were mistaken in the most humiliating and shameful way.

The destruction of Libya shows the completely rotten reality underlying the false claims to moral and intellectual superiority of Western political culture. The contagion of baseless prejudices and rumours glibly treated as fact also extended to many majority world intellectuals. It was truly remarkable how many supposedly cultured, sophisticated individuals, knowing practically nothing about Libya, expressed an irrational antipathy against both the Libyan Jamahiriya and its architect Muammar al-Gaddhafi.

Only a few leaders, notably Daniel Ortega, Hugo Chávez and Fidel Castro, showed the necessary wisdom to accurately assess what was happening. This is indisputable. So one obvious conclusion is to question the judgment of all those Western political leaders, intellectuals and many supposedly progressive movements, whatever their political label may be. The aggression against Libya has proven to be the graveyard of the credibility of public political and intellectual life in North America and Europe.

The UN showed itself yet again to be a reliable accomplice of aggression violating its most fundamental principles. Almost alone, it was the governments of the Bolivarian Alliance of the Americas who maintained a consistent and correct position based on an accurate assessment of the facts. When almost all other world political leaders failed so grossly on Libya, it is indeed interesting to look at why Daniel Ortega, Hugo Chávez, Fidel Castro and their ALBA colleagues got things right.

More than anyone those leaders and their colleagues like Nicolas Maduro, Evo Morales and Rafael Correa understand the meaning of the true history of mass struggle against the Western imperialist powers throughout the majority world. They were right about Libya and they are right now in their defence of Cuba, Venezuela and Argentina in Latin America and, elsewhere, of the people and government of Syria and the people of eastern Ukraine. Last week they again showed the strength of their anti-imperialist political vision in two very important events for Latin America and the Caribbean.

Firstly, last week saw the first meeting of the Administrative Council of the long delayed Bank of the South, a South American alternative to the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Secondly, last week also saw unanimous solidarity with Argentina from Latin American and Caribbean countries in the Organization of American States against US court judgments favouring predatory vulture funds. Both cases indicate the influence and prestige achieved in recent years of the ALBA countries’ vision of solidarity based regional integration.

As the economic and political crisis in the NATO countries deepens, the challenge to its global political and economic domination increases. The West promotes a vision based on greed and competition rigged via unfair trade, manipulative development cooperation and unjust debt. The increasingly influential ALBA vision, of solidarity and cooperation based on fundamental respect for nations’ self-determination is also the vision of the Libyan Jamahiriya. In Latin America, the deep moral battle between this vision and the destructive corporate greed of the West plays out mainly in the continuing vicious blockade of Cuba, the violent destabilization of Venezuela and, now, the wanton legal attack on Argentina’s economy.

Who is responsible for the catastrophes in the Middle East?


 

Who is responsible for the catastrophes in the Middle East?

by Bill Van Auken

“The United States of America is not responsible for what happened in Libya, nor is it responsible for what is happening in Iraq today,” Secretary of State John Kerry declared at a Cairo news conference held in the midst of his recent crisis tour of the Middle East.

As Kerry spoke, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and a growing Sunni insurgency were consolidating their grip over the north and west of Iraq, including the country’s borders with Syria and Jordan. Upwards of a million Iraqis had been displaced by the fighting, and thousands had been killed in the mounting sectarian slaughter.

Libya is in a state of complete collapse, with continuous fighting between rival militias, a government that exists in name only, oil production down by at least 80 percent, and over a million ****(unfortunately its over 3 million) people forced to flee the country’s violence. Many thousands ****(over 70 thousand) are incarcerated in a network of prisons run by armed groups that practice systematic torture.

Kerry’s statement merely made official the steady drumbeat from the political establishment and the media since the situation in Iraq turned into a complete debacle: “The US bears no responsibility.”

Typical was the commentary by New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, a “human rights” imperialist who was a vocal proponent of the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. He wrote: “The debacle in Iraq isn’t President Obama’s fault. It’s not the Republicans’ fault… overwhelmingly, it’s the fault of the Iraqi prime minister, Nuri Kamal al-Maliki.” ***(Really? Maliki is the puppet of the USA so how is it his fault?)

Maliki, the stooge put in power and kept there by the US occupation, is made the fall guy.

Thomas Friedman, the Times’ foreign affairs columnist, wrote Sunday that Maliki is an “arsonist,” who, “the minute America left Iraq,” deliberately unleashed mayhem. This is the same Friedman who in 2003 declared that the US invaded Iraq “because we could,” spoke proudly of US troops going house-to-house and ordering Iraqis to “suck on this,” and declared that he had “no problem with a war for oil.”

Listening to the chorus of statements insisting that the US has no responsibility for the deepening tragedy inflicted upon the people of Iraq and Libya, one is reminded of nothing so much as the Nazi war criminals at Nuremberg, from Hermann Göring on down, rising one-by-one in the dock to declare themselves “not guilty.”

What are the crimes for which Kerry and so many others in the ruling establishment insist Washington bears no responsibility?

The description that they used for their own actions at the time was “shock and awe,” the unleashing of colossal destructive force upon a society already shattered by a decade of sadistic US sanctions. Killing hundreds of thousands of people and turning millions into refugees, the US war and occupation destroyed every institution of Iraqi society, while Washington deliberately fomented sectarian divisions as a means of overcoming Iraqi nationalism. The country’s deposed ruler, Saddam Hussein, was tried by a drumhead court and unceremoniously executed.

All of this was justified with warnings about the imminent threat from “weapons of mass destruction” and ties between Baghdad and Al Qaeda. As the whole world now knows, it was all lies.

There were no WMDs and there was no Al Qaeda in Iraq until US imperialism overthrew the country’s government and tore its social fabric to pieces. In fact, there was no Al Qaeda at all before Washington set about inciting a bloody war by right-wing Islamists in Afghanistan in the 1980s.

In Libya and now in Syria, the Obama administration abandoned the “war on terrorism” pretext for an equally cynical and fraudulent justification for regime-change: “human rights.” In Libya, the US and NATO heavily bombed the country while organizing and arming Islamist-led militias in a sectarian war that destroyed all of the existing governmental and social structures. As in Iraq, it ended its war with the brutal murder of the country’s secular leader, Muammar Gaddafi.

Washington is carrying out a similar war for regime-change in Syria, backing Sunni Islamist and sectarian militias that are led by ISIS, the same force that has overrun much of Iraq. The US hopes to end this war with the assassination of a third secular Arab head of state, Bashar al-Assad.

Just last week, Obama proposed to funnel $500 million in arms to the Syrian “rebels”—weapons that everyone knows will end up in the hands of ISIS, which the US is supposedly committed to defeating in Iraq.

As the contradictions and deceptions of Washington’s policy become ever more glaring, US officials simply act as though the American people won’t notice, or will believe anything. Or, for that matter, they won’t see that $500 million can be conjured up instantly to pay for a criminal war, while working people are being told “there is no money” for health care, education, housing or jobs.

The destruction that the US oligarchs have wrought in the Middle East, with all of its terrible human consequences, is the external manifestation of their destructive role within the US itself—smashing up the country’s manufacturing base, turning its economy into a gambling casino for financial parasites, destroying the jobs and living standards of millions of people. With no answers to the growing crisis at home, they turn to violence abroad, only compounding the catastrophes they have created overseas.

The “not responsibles” and “not guilties” from Kerry, Kristof, Friedman and the other advocates and apologists for American military aggression won’t wash. US imperialism is responsible for terrible crimes against humanity.

Yet no one has been held accountable. Not those in Washington—Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, Powell, et al.—who conspired to wage a war of aggression; not those in the current administration, from Obama on down, who conspired to shield their predecessors and continue the same predatory policies; not the military brass who carried out the war; not the private contractors who enriched themselves off of it; not the lying media that helped foist the war onto the American public; not the cowardly and conformist academics who justified and went along with it.

Together, they are responsible for the catastrophes that have been inflicted upon the peoples of Iraq, Libya and Syria.

An Empire Without a Military Strategy for a Military Strategy Without an Empire


An Empire Without a Military Strategy for a Military Strategy Without an Empire

 

By Thierry Meyssan

On May 28th, President Obama delivered an important speech stating his strategic doctrine on the occasion of the graduation of cadets of the Military Academy at West Point. [1]

Not surprisingly, the President recalled that he kept his promise to repatriate US troops deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq, and to eliminate Osama bin Laden. But what he portrayed as a supposedly laudatory assessment is not one: the GIs returned exhausted from Afghanistan and have fled Iraq before being expelled by the popular resistance. The exorbitant cost of these expeditions, over 1,000 billion, has prevented the Pentagon from maintaining its arsenal. About the death of bin Laden, it is naught but a fairy tale: Osama Bin Laden had nothing to do with the attacks of September 11th and died of illness and was buried in December 2001, as has well certified the British MI6. [2]

One can only admire the US ability to continue this narration of an imaginary reality, however contradicted by solid evidence, and to always be echoed by the Atlanticist media.

In his speech, the president described his country as “the indispensable nation”, both militarily and economically the most powerful. Yet neither of these assertions is still true. On May 14th, General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, acknowledged before the Atlantic Council that US armed forces would definitely be surpassed in 10 years if a huge upgrade effort were not made ​​right away [3] ; an unlikely effort given budgetary restrictions. The Pentagon notes that the gap in military research is probably irreversible. Russian and Chinese Military technology are now more developed than those of the United States. It is too late to recover. The apparent superiority of Washington holds only because its troops are the only ones deployed worldwide. It therefore exists in certain theaters of operation, but not against Russia, nor against China, which would win in World War. As for the economy, the majority of consumer goods consumed in the U.S. is made ​​in China.

On this spooky basis, in the words of the Washington Post referring only to the relative military weakness of the United States [4], President Obama announced that his country would not hesitate to intervene abroad when its direct interests are involved, but would use international coalitions to address more distant problems. He said that, unlike during the Cold War, Russia no longer posed an imminent danger, but that the main enemy is terrorism.

So the accession of the Crimea to Russia doesn’t matter. Washington will not fight against it though it describes it as an “annexation” and a grave breach of international law, not hesitating to compare President Vladimir Putin to Adolf Hitler.

Especially after 13 years of “war against terrorism”, Washington claims to have eliminated a few fanatics who composed the international leadership of Al Qaeda, but must now face a more serious problem : many affiliated al-Qaeda groups which have formed almost everywhere in the world.

This “war without end” has the advantage of authorizing everything. Presenting itself since 2001 as acting in self-defense, Washington has authorized itself to violate the sovereignty of other states in order to remove or bombard them, using blackmail at will. To continue this war, President Obama announced the creation of a “counterterrorism partnerships fund,” of up to $ 5 billion. It will aim to train security forces in allied states. Who can believe in such a program? Currently terrorists are trained in the more permanent camps of Al Qaeda, located in the Libyan desert country occupied by NATO. Meanwhile three Al Qaeda camps are installed in Şanlıurfa, Osmaniye and Karaman, Turkey, a NATO member [5] country.

Syrians remember the televised confessions of the Emir of Al- Nosra Front (affiliated to Al-Qaeda) who transported chemical missiles from a Turkish military base to Damascus Ghouta. According to this man, not only were the weapons provided to him by a member of the NATO army, but the order to use them under “false- flag” to justify the bombing of Syria by the United States came from the US.

13 years after the events of September 11, 2001, who can still believe that Al-Qaeda is the main enemy of the “indispensable nation”, when even Barack Obama described the elements affiliated with Al-Qaeda as “less capable” than their parent organisation in his speech at the national Defense University, May 28, 2013 ? [6]. He said that the danger had become relative and that the United States should no longer make it the priority.

About Syria, President Obama continued at West Point by stating intentions to “help the Syrian people stand up against a dictator who bombs and starves his own people” ( sic). That is why Washington will help “those who fight for the right of all Syrians to choose their own future” (read: not the Syrians themselves who vote to elect their president, but only those who are willing to collaborate with a colonial government made in NATO).

Moreover, why intervene only in Syria? Because “As the Syrian civil war spills across borders, the capacity of battle-hardened extremist groups to come after us only increases. ” In other words, after burning Syria, the United States could be affected by the fire they have lit.

“We will step up our efforts to support Syria’s neighbors — Jordan and Lebanon; Turkey and Iraq — as they contend with refugees and confront terrorists working across Syria’s borders. I will work with Congress to ramp up support for those in the Syrian opposition who offer the best alternative to terrorists and brutal dictators. And we will continue to coordinate with our friends and allies in Europe and the Arab World to push for a political resolution of this crisis, and to make sure that those countries and not just the United States are contributing their fair share to support the Syrian people,” he said.

In other words, the White House is having talks with Congress on how to support the personal ambitions of members of the National Coalition. According to press reports, Washington could provide military training in neighboring states and distribute better weapons. Only here’s the rub:

If Washington starts to train and arm Syrian collaborators, it will have to admit to not having done so on a large scale before and having used primarily foreign mercenaries as part of Al-Qaeda.

If 250,000 mercenary jihadists were unable to overthrow the Syrian government over the past three years, how will a few thousand Employees of Western colonization succeed?

Why would neighboring states, already engaged in a secret war, enter into an open war against Syria, with the risks involved for them?

Which more sophisticated weapons could be delivered to the employees of colonialism without the risk of their being used someday against other targets, including Israeli air superiority?

And last, but not least, knowing that all this has been discussed over the past three years, what new factor could lead one to believe that these isuues could find a solution today?

Obama’s speech is one of impotence : he boasts of having withdrawn his troops from Afghanistan and Iraq and killing a ghost that, for the past decade, still existed only in the tapes of Al-Jazeera. He announces he would fight the terrorism that everywhere he protects. He declares he will support the “Syrian opposition” more effectively, but immediately tunes into Congress – which could not see bombing the country during the chemical weapons crisis -, confident that it will limit itself to the minimum.

This speech is only a facade of verbiage trying to hide an irreversible decline. He stunned the audience which understood dreams of conquest are at an end. Against all odds, less than a quarter of the 1064 graduates of the Military Academy at West Point applauded the president, while the majority remained unmoved. The Empire is slowly dying.
