For the third time in five years, the world’s fourth largest military power has launched a full-scale armed onslaught on one of its most deprived and overcrowded territories.Referring to Gaza as a territory belonging to Israel is also a cute distortion.
Sunday, July 20, 2014
First sentence of a Seumas Milne Guardian piece includes long-debunked factoid about the "world's fourth largest military power."
Here it is:
PressTV doesn't quite get the full range of VT material, as the previous post illustrates--medium crazy is about right for them:
An American political commentator believes that Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu benefits from the shooting down of a Malaysian passenger plane because he can continue his atrocities in Gaza.
In an interview with Press TV on Sunday, Veterans Today editor James Henry Fetzer also rejected Washington’s allegation that Moscow was behind the incident.
“The report that the Russian weapons were used to down the Malaysian plane in Ukraine does not mean that Russia was involved or the Russian separatists in Ukraine had anything to do with it. What could Russia have possibly stood to benefit in shooting down this airplane?” Fetzer said.
“Russia has nothing to gain from this. Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu had everything to gain because it was occurring by remarkable coincidence at the very same time Israel is launching its massive inhumane savage slaughter of the Palestinian people in Gaza,” he added. [...]
The author of this is one "Preston James, PhD." Something from the too-crazy-for-PressTV contingent at VT? Use of bold and italics follows the original:
Have Ruling Super-elite Deviants set up a Secret Cell of Nuclear Weapon Scientists to covertly and quickly develop advanced Nuclear Devices they can then deploy to depopulate Planet Earth by 90%, in order to avoid a threatened 100% Global Depopulation ” Reset” by Alien ETs which would include themselves?Are Dracos anything like Bacos?
Note: This article is written for retired military and Intel with advanced knowledge of Space War matters and Alien ET visitors.
If you have not examined all the evidence of such matters that was presented in previous Secret Space War articles, you are probably wasting your valuable time reading this and it will seem like nonsense to you.
You are not allowed to know this information by the Powers That Be (PTB). They don’t really care what you believe as long as it is plausibly deniable, but they have gone to extreme limits by controlling the USG, the Judiciary, the Major Mass Media and the Educational System to make sure you cannot know these things for sure.
The particular Alien ET group which allegedly made this Ultimatum in the first place which was communicated to this exclusive group by a spokesman is believed to be the Dracos.
This Ultimatum was reported by an insider and corroborated by another.
And it is believed by numerous insiders that these Dracos are represented by and aligned with the World Zionists (WZs) working out of the City of London Financial District and through their main Action-Agent Cutouts, Israel leaders and their Assets inside the American Establishment.
These stateside assets include NeoCons, PNACers, AIPAC, B’nai B’rith, Israeli-American Israeli-first Dual Citizens, and the private federal reserve System which is a franchisee of the City of London’s World Zionist private Central Bank.(1)
The information about this Final Warning seems to fit with numerous other reports over the last several years. If true, this warning carries some startling implications for the continued survival of the World Masses. [...]

Rockets are actually "pounding Tel Aviv"! The reports of rockets falling in empty fields is just propaganda designed to deprive Hamas of the data it needs to adjust its aim. The author, one Gordon Duff, is a "Senior Editor" at that citadel of truth, Veteran's Today:
Are rockets pounding Tel Aviv? Experts who have examined the denials and press releases by Israel and here “media friends,” are giving a resounding “yes!”
One American military officer, a former commander of an air defense unit, said this of Israel’s propaganda campaign: “It is almost as though they dragged poor Winston Churchill” out of the grave.
News reports have Israel’s braving incoming Hamas rockets, “stiff upper lip,” while intelligence reports tell another story. There is panic, frankly, as would be expected considering the fact that Israel is used to having others do her fighting.”
Key to Israel’s strategy is something learned from Britain during World War II. Hamas rockets can only be targeted if impacts are reported and range and direction are adjusted, perhaps to pound downtown Tel Aviv.
What is being released to the news, citing rockets as landing “in the middle of nowhere” is an attempt to get Hamas to adjust range and direction and actually hit “the middle of nowhere.” What these reports actually mean is the rockets are not only accurate but that Hamas’ intelligence network inside Israel is doing a highly effective job relaying target data. [...]
Israeli air defense systems have destroyed buildings and killed Jews with missiles suffering booster failure and plunging into populated areas. Anyone threatening to report this inside Israel has a life expectancy of hours.
The idea that Hamas rockets are being intercepted successfully is almost funny. In order to simulate an interception, it would be necessary to place a slow flying drone in the path of an Israeli rocket and hope the two accidentally collided. If it was a “miss,” you could always self-destruct the drone and lie about it.
Here is the paragraph in question:
THE LATEST mini-war between Israel and the Hamas movement is as unwinnable for either side as previous rounds in 2009 and 2012. Though it has stockpiled thousands of rockets and some longer-range missiles, Hamas lacks the ability to inflict serious damage or casualties; a new anti-missile system has blocked most of the warheads headed toward Tel Aviv and other populous areas. Israel, for its part, can target Hamas commanders and infrastructure in Gaza but probably can’t entirely silence the rocket launchers. A ground invasion of Gaza, for which troops are now being mustered, would cause heavy casualties and, if it destroyed Hamas, leave Israel with the task of governing the territory and its nearly 2 million people.The article bends over backwards to use balanced-sounding language, but that gives it all away. Hamas is constrained only by its lack of firepower, Israel lacks the stomach to cause the amount of damage necessary to stop the rockets permanently. That isn't normal military morality. You are allowed to win. The laws of war were not created to make fanatacism into a tactical and strategic advantage.

In which the "Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army" decides that "only when the commanding officers of the navy are good at swimming, can they lead the seamen and successfully carry out the naval operation for implementing the strategic plan of the supreme command even in vast expanse of sea" and orders a "drill":
Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, guided the drill for assessing the swimming ability of the commanding officers of the KPA Navy.Because for a truly first-rate navy, boats are optional.
The drill organized by the order of the supreme commander was conducted in such a way that the commanding officers of the East Sea Fleet and the West Sea Fleet of the KPA Navy simultaneously started in column formations up to the turn-round point at the distance of 5 km and swam back from it.
All the commanding officers of the East Sea Fleet and the West Sea Fleet took part in the swimming drill.
Kim Jong Un met the commanding officers prior to the start of the drill and told them that the assessment of their swimming ability was of weighty importance in rounding off the combat readiness of the navy and remarkably bolstering up the combat capabilities by making the training more intense just as the anti-Japanese guerillas did in Mt. Paektu.
He said that the commanding officers should become good fighters if the army is to fight well, adding that a modern warfare requires the commanding officers to be prepared not only politically and ideologically and in military technique but physically.
"The commanding officers are not qualified if they lack physical ability, no matter what good ideological and moral qualities they have and no matter how high military and technological qualifications they are possessed of as they should stand in the van of the combat ranks," he noted.
"When the commanding officers are fully prepared, they can always lead intensive training of service personnel, shouting "Forward, following me!" not "Charge ahead!" he said.
Saying that the seamen should acquire high ability of swimming, he stressed that only when the commanding officers of the navy are good at swimming, can they lead the seamen and successfully carry out the naval operation for implementing the strategic plan of the supreme command even in vast expanse of sea.
The commanding officers renewed their resolution to fully display the might of Kim Jong Un's Navy in the assessment event, regarding the drill for assessing the swimming ability to be staged before the supreme commander as a battle field without gunfire.
He issued an order to start the drill.
The participants fully demonstrated the swimming ability they have cultivated in their day-to-day training, displaying great persevering strength, will and team spirit.
The West Sea Fleet was highly appreciated at the drill.
Then followed the assessment and review of the drill.
He expressed great satisfaction over the successful drill and set forth tasks to be fulfilled to round off the combat readiness and bolster up the combat capabilities of the naval units including the work for making swimming drill a rule and part of life of the seamen so that they may satisfactorily perform their combat missions under any circumstances.

"Not an inch of deviation"--that's how they like their missiles and their ideology:
Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, guided the test-fire of newly developed cutting- edge ultra-precision tactical guided missiles.
At the central monitoring post he acquainted himself with the tactical and technological information of the newly developed guided missiles before giving an order to test-fire them.
The moment the guided missiles soared into the sky with thunderous roar.
The test-fire clearly proved that the tactical guided weapons didn't have an inch of deviation in their scientific and technological performance.
They are another shining success made by scientists in the field of national defence and workers in the field of munitions industry in their efforts to implement the WPK's policy of manufacturing high-precision, lighter, automatic and intelligent weapons and equipment.
The test-fire helped the KPA get the master key to putting all strike means including short-, medium- and long-range guided weapons on ultra-precision basis of the world level and opened a prospect for maximizing their striking accuracy and power.
The successful test-fire at a time when the U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime and all other allied forces are going extremely reckless in the moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK and unleash a war of aggression marked a significant event in bolstering up the defence capability for self-defense. This greatly encourages the service personnel and people of the DPRK.
Kim Jong Un expressed great satisfaction over the results of the test-fire.
Expressing belief that the officials and workers in the fields of national defence science and munitions industry would manufacture more ultra- precision tactical guided weapons capable of taking the decisive initiative in any operation and battle of the modern warfare through accurate preemptive strikes, always bearing in mind the expectations of the party and the people, he advanced new tasks to be fulfilled by the field of national defence science and technology.

The "analyst" turns out to be Kevin Barrett, but I would take this article as a peek into the Supreme Leader's brain. Poor dears, they're melting down:
Takfiri militants currently wreaking havoc on Iraq are operatives of the Israeli regime, an analyst writes for Press TV.Judging from the tone of the press coverage, the West has not yet figured out the happiness part, but maybe it should be happy.
“The Takfiri terrorists afflicting Iraq – like the American invaders – are tools of the Zionists,” Kevin Barrett wrote in an article for the Press TV website.
The analyst was referring to the extremist militants from the al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) that reportedly captured two provincial capitals this week, namely Tikrit in the Salahuddin Province and Iraq’s second city of Mosul in the northern province of Nineveh.
Barrett said people in Iraq and the entire Middle East have to “wake up” to what is under way in their countries and “then rise up and throw the Takfiri terrorists, Zionists, and occupiers out of the region.”
He added that the ISIL was created on the al-Qaeda model to pursue the interests of Western governments in the Middle East.
“So perhaps the Zionist-led West is perfectly happy to sit back and watch Iraq get torn apart by the ISIL,” wrote Barrett. [...]

This actually ends by referring to "the consequences of arming militant groups":
Palestinian Resistance Movement Hamas Political Bureau Chief Khaled Mashal in a meeting with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian in the Qatari capital of Doha praised Tehran's commitment to the political solution of the Syrian crisis.
"Iran’s role in the resolution of the three-year-long crisis in Syria has been constructive," Mashal said during the meeting.
Mashal pointed to Israel’s negative role in Syria and its policy of exploiting the developments in the Middle East to its own advantage, and said, "The crisis in Syria can only be resolved through political means."
He called on the regional countries to play a more effective role in resolving the Syrian crisis.
On Wednesday,Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in a meeting with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in Beijing voiced his concern over the ongoing Syrian crisis, and called for collective efforts to resolve the country's problems.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran has always felt concerns over the regional issues, specially the Syrian issue," President Rouhani said during the meeting on the sidelines of the Fourth Summit of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA) in the Chinese capital.
Syria has been gripped by deadly violence since 2011. The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has put the death toll from the foreign-backed militancy against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad at more than 160,000.
Western powers and their regional allies -- specially Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey -- are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.
As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.
Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.

All the world's a stage. One of the loonier members of the Veteran's Today crowd, one Keven Barrett, reveals that the Boston Marathon bombing, Sandy Hook, the "Achille Lauro false flag," and by implication much of the rest of reality is all one big hoax:
We are told that a radical Islamic group called Boko Haram has kidnapped schoolgirls in Nigeria. This classic good-vs.-evil tale pits crazed Muslim extremists against adorable innocent children. The whole world demands the rescue of the girls, and deplores the evils of "radical Islam."
It is a terrific story - the stuff Hollywood films are made of. But is it true?
Though the story is hogging the global media spotlight, it is full of gaping holes and wildly inconsistent official pronouncements. The Christian Science Monitor, hardly a bible of conspiracy theorists, points out:
"For all the urgent headlines and advocacy, however, what is still missing are basic facts. It is unclear how many girls were abducted, who they are, who did it, at what time, and exactly how."
A story featuring unknown heroines and unknown villains performing unknown actions at an unknown time does not even qualify as a myth. The word "rumor" might even be an exaggeration.
The Christian Science Monitor story continues:
"For starters, the number of girls taken away by the self-described Islamist radical Boko Haram and later rescued keeps changing. First it was 129 girls rescued. Then 121 were rescued and 8 were missing. The next day, none had been rescued at all. No collective set of photos of the girls appears to exist, or even all their names (some websites with photos of the girls have used photos lifted from elsewhere)."
This is all very strange. It reminds some researchers of the anomalies surrounding official pronouncements about the victims of the Sandy Hook school shooting of December 2012 and the Boston Marathon bombing of April 2013.
The local news website Boston.com lists the names, ages, and hometowns of four people killed by the Boston bombing and sixty more who were wounded. Authorities claim that 264 people in all were wounded. But videos of the bombing show that the area where the bomb went off was largely empty of people. The claim that 264 people were wounded strikes many researchers, including University of Minnesota Professor Emeritus James Fetzer, as grossly exaggerated. There is no documentation, not even a list of names, for 204 of the 264 people allegedly wounded.
Additionally, Professor Fetzer and other researchers argue that the Boston bombing videos prove that some of the worst "injuries" were Hollywood-style fakes. He says that one of the alleged victims, Nick Vogt, actually lost his legs in Afghanistan, not in the Boston bombing. In his article "Some 'hard lessons' from the Boston Bombing" Fetzer reproduces photographs purporting to show Vogt being prepared with fake wound prosthetics in the aftermath of the bombing. The photos and video of Vogt and another man who supposedly lost his leg, Jeff Bauman, raise serious questions about how people can lose legs from blunt force trauma yet suffer minimal loss of blood. Bauman was placed upright in a wheelchair - hardly the recommended treatment for someone who has just lost a leg - and taken away looking fully alert and in no apparent pain.
James Fetzer comments:
"Look at the photos of Jeff Bauman. Why are his legs not spurting blood? How can he be upright, conscious and alert as he is being rushed off in a wheelchair? His fake prosthesis falls off as they are rushing him away, so they stop and reattach it! Just how dumb are the American people?"
Massachusetts State Representative Stella Tremblay agreed - and was censured for her fellow legislators for raising questions about the bombings, which photos show were carried out by Craft International mercenaries, not the Tsarnaev brothers.
Fetzer also believes that the Sandy Hook school shooting of December 14th, 2012 was a staged event. In an article co-authored with Professor James Tracy and other co-authors, entitled "Top Ten Reasons: Sandy Hook was an Elaborate Hoax," Fetzer criticizes the State of Connecticut's official criminal report:
"The report does not even include the names, the ages or the sex of the alleged victims of the shooting. There is no actual identification of any of the dead...Anyone with the inclination can comb through hundreds of years of American crime reports and surely would not find another instance in the which the names, the ages or the sex of the victims is not given–with the exception of victims of sex crimes. Withholding this information is part of a pattern of deception and deceit that extends to the Clerk of Newtown making secret arrangements with the state legislature to avoid releasing death certificates to the public, attempts to withhold the 911 calls and gag orders that were imposed upon those responsible for tearing down the building."
To summarize: More than 200 alleged victims of the Boston Marathon bombing remain nameless, without a shred of evidence that they even exist. The official Sandy Hook report, likewise, withholds the names of victims and witnesses. And now the Nigerian government offers no convincing evidence that any specific individuals were actually kidnapped, nor any details about when or how the alleged kidnapping occurred.
The recent video featuring supposed Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau alongside pictures of praying schoolgirls raises more questions than it answers. First, if the person in the video is really Shekau, why does the Nigerian government continue to insist that Shekau is dead? Why did Boko Haram and Shekau (assuming it is really Shekau) wait three weeks to claim responsibility for the alleged kidnapping?
The Christian Science Monitor points out that "the only hard evidence that Abubakar Shekau is even the leader of Boko Haram is that he says so. This is a man who threatened to kill former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher from his hideout in northeastern Nigeria more than six months after she died."
Many Nigerians wonder whether Boko Haram really exists. The supposed radical Islamic organization has been blamed for the killings of thousands of people. Yet details about the group are so murky that many observers suspect it may be more mythical than real. According to one theory, the real killers are mercenaries paid to stage false-flag "Islamic terror" in order to justify foreign intervention in oil-rich Nigeria.
The government of Nigeria owes the world a specific, coherent, fully-documented and transparent explanation of the kidnapped-schoolgirls story. Likewise, the US government owes the world fully-transparent accounts of the Boston and Sandy Hook events. In all of these cases - as with so many other spectacular terrorist incidents - people have good reason to suspect that their governments are lying to them.
We know that the US government has a long history of planning and staging fake terror incidents to galvanize public opinion, curtail civil liberties, launch pre-planned wars, pursue a "strategy of tension," and gain other strategic objectives. Anyone who doubts this should simply feed the terms "Operation Northwoods" and "Operation Gladio" into a search engine.
Other governments do the same thing. Israel, with its Lavon Affair, USS Liberty massacre, Achille Lauro false flag, and many similar incidents, may be the world's false-flag champion.
Are elements of the Nigerian government, perhaps with foreign help, staging or assisting "Boku Haram" attacks? Could this be just the latest example of a worldwide trend: The creation and deployment of brutal Takfiri militant groups to smear Islam in service to Zionism and imperialism?
The actual title of this little tirade is "We Will Finally Settle Accounts with Park Geun Hye Group: NDC of DPRK":
The puppet forces of south Korea, a colony where they have the prerogative over the army, a basic criteria of a sovereign state, usurped by the U.S. and find themselves in such a poor position in which they have to eat without complaint beef infected with mad cow disease offered by the U.S. and suffer from high fever being caught by a cold if the U.S. makes a cough.
Park Geun Hye, who claims to be "president", has to stammer out American English when she is in the U.S. to play the coquette with her American master. Only then can she be regarded as a faithful dog and servant. This is the wretched plight of south Korea.
That's why we have long regarded south Korea as a group of puppets and colonial servants who are steeped in dependence on outsiders and treachery to the marrow of their bones.
Stressing that the DPRK can never overlook the fact that such guys dared point an accusing finger at the DPRK, the most dignified country in the world, the crucial report continued:
It is also pitiful to see the south Korean puppet forces making a false show of power after pinning their hope on their U.S. master's such common war hardware as assault fighters, aircraft carriers and guided missiles.
The DPRK doesn't hide that it possesses strike means more powerful than all the latest war hardware noisily advertised by the U.S.
It is a resolution already made by the DPRK to force the enemies to pay a dear price whenever an opportunity presents itself.
We cannot but take a serious note of such reckless remarks made by Kim as he termed the DPRK "a country which should disappear as early as possible", unaware of such a reality.
Such reckless remarks have never been made in the distress-torn history of national division.
What the Park group uttered this time cannot be construed otherwise than a total denial of compatriots in the north, an undisguised revelation of its wild ambition to achieve the "unification by absorption" and a declaration of all-out confrontation of the social systems.
The baneful consequences to be entailed by these reckless outbursts can be neither retrieved nor put under control.
All the service personnel and people of the DPRK and the mindset of all other Koreans are strongly calling for wiping the Park group out of this land as it didn't hesitate to perpetrate thrice-cursed treason.
The Park group will have to keenly feel what miserable consequences it will face for its vitriol.
