Putin to US: “STOP ROCKING THE BOAT… CALLED EARTH!”

Putin delivers a sobering message to the US in Russia’s version of the “state of the union” address:

STOP ROCKING THE BOAT… CALLED EARTH!

Putin: “All the things you were trying to prevent through your policies have already happened. You have failed to hold Russia back”

Putin delivered a sobering message to the US and to the world in his annual address to the Federation Assembly

“To those who for the last 15 years have been trying to fan an arms race, achieve unilateral advantage against Russia, impose sanctions, which are illegal from the standpoint of international law and are aimed at holding back the development of our country, including in the military area, I have this to say: All the things you were trying to prevent through your policies have already happened. You have failed to hold Russia back,” Putin said.

“You now have to acknowledge this reality, confirm that everything I said is no bluff – which it isn’t – think for some time, send into retirement the people stuck in the past and incapable of looking into the future, [and] stop rocking the boat that we all ride in and which is called planet Earth,” he said. Russia would be responsive if talked to as an equal partner, Putin added.

Putin unveiled a number of new nuclear weapons that Russia has as added to its arsenal in the last 15 years.

One system is the new Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) called Sarmat, or RS-28. It’s already well-known, but Putin stressed that its increased range allows the missile to reach US territory from Russia via a South Pole route. The US has dozens of interceptor missiles deployed in Alaska on the presumption that Russia’s ICBMs would approach from that direction, which would not be the case with Sarmat.

In fact, the Soviet Union had a missile that could approach the US from any direction. It was not a regular ballistic missile but rather one that put the warhead into low-earth orbit. The warhead would then deorbit when close to its target, thanks to its own engines. However, the R-36orb missiles were scrapped as part of nuclear reduction process.

Putin then went on to weapons systems that were not previously known to the public. One is a yet-to-be-named cruise missile with an almost unlimited range.

The Russian president accused the US of arrogance, saying that it thought that Russia would not be able to recover anytime soon after the collapse of the Soviet Union and that its interests can simply be ignored. One particular move – the withdrawal by George W Bush from the Anti-ballistic Missile Treaty (ABM) in 2002 – resulted in Russia being increasingly surrounded by American assets, which undermined the country’s nuclear deterrence.

Russia has now countered this, according to Putin, who went on to present a number of new systems, some of which don’t yet have names, and which are all meant to counter current and future ABM systems. His speech was accompanied by a series of video clips showing those new systems, partially as footage of tests and partially as computer-generated images showing their capabilities.

‘Speaking softly’: Russia wants negotiations, not confrontation

After his tough talk, the Russian president then offered the US an olive branch.

He stressed that Russia would not need all these new weapons if its legitimate concerns had not been ignored by the US and its allies. “Nobody wanted to talk with us on the core of the problem. Nobody listened to us. Now you listen!” he said.

He suggested that the US abandon its costly and inefficient hostile plans towards Russia and start negotiating a security arrangement which would take Moscow’s interests into account.


ALTZAR’S editorial comment

PUTIN’S SPEECH TO FALL ON DEAF EARS IN THE US?

What Putin is proposing, of course, would make eminent sense to anyone who strives to achieve peace and harmony on this planet. Alas, that does not include anyone among the US power elite Washington or New York. Their perpetual motto has been and still is:

PERPETUAL WAR FOR PERPETUAL COMMERCE

ws_Explosion_1920x1200 (1)

The US powers that be know no other way of life but the use of force and coercion. Chances are, therefore, that Putin’s words will fall on deaf ears in Washington and New York. Warmongers will be warmongers until they self-destruct. Just as Hitler’s Third Reich did over 70 years ago.

On this day in history… March 1, 1966

RUSSIAN PROBE FIRST TO REACH VENUS

Meanwhile, it is an instructive coincidence that on this day in 1996 – yes, 1966 – over three years before the US Apollo mission to the Moon – Venera 3, a Soviet probe launched from Kazakhstan on November 15, 1965, crash-landed on Venus.

Venus is the second planet from the sun and the closest planet to the Earth both in size and distance. Although Venera 3 failed in its mission to measure the Venusian atmosphere, it was the first unmanned spacecraft to reach the surface of another planet. Four years earlier, the U.S. probe Mariner 2 was the first spacecraft to pass close enough to Venus to take scientific measurements of the planet, discovering surface temperatures in excess of 800 degrees Fahrenheit on its surface.

In 1967, Venera 4 succeeded where Venera 3 failed, successfully ejecting several scientific instruments, including a thermometer, a barometer, an atmospheric density gauge, and gas analyzers, into Venus’ atmosphere. Then, in 1970, Venera 7 became the first spacecraft created by humans to soft-land on Venus, successfully sending back images and data for 23 minutes before succumbing to the extremely high temperature and atmospheric pressure found on the planet’s surface.

 

RUSSIA WAS AHEAD OF THE US IN SPACE EXPLORATION EVEN IN THE 1960s

How significant are these Russian achievements from more than half century ago?

Enormously. When the US spacecraft landed on the Moon in 1969, it had traveled an average distance of 239,000 miles.  When Venera 7 soft-landed on Venus a year later, the Russian spacecraft had traveled for 120 days covering the distance of between 25 million and 162 million miles (Venus’ orbit is elliptic, so its distance from the Earth varies greatly).

Assuming that Venera 7 took the shortest possible route, it still means that the Russian spacecraft had traveled at least 105 times (!) farther to reach Venus than the US missions to the Moon.

TOWARD NEW ARMS RACE?

Bet you never learned facts like that in myopic and chauvinistic American schools? And it’s that kind of ignorance that breeds arrogance that can eventually kill us all.

So when Putin says Russia now has capabilities of nuking the US via the South Pole, the American warmongers had better take him seriously.

Thank God there is at least one sane person among the world leaders who have the power to destroy the planet. But will Putin enough? Or will the “big stick” which he revealed today become yet another excuse for more military spending in the US?

My bet is it will be the latter. Trump has already beefed up the Pentagon budget during his first year in office. And Putin has now given him another reason to accelerate the new arms race.

NATO’S FIRST MILITARY ACTION IN HISTORY

ANOTHER DAY WHICH WILL LIVE IN INFAMY

It’s a done deal, Trump recognizes Jerusalem as Israeli capital

ANOTHER DAY WHICH WILL LIVE IN INFAMY

Netanyahu thanks Trump

“I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” the president said today during a speech in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House.

In a recorded statement released minutes after Trump finished talking, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that his people would be “forever grateful” for the “historic decision” and urged other countries to follow America’s example.

STAND BY FOR A FALLOUT FROM THIS FOOLHARDY DECISION

And now, stand by for a fallout from this foolhardy decision. Will Dec 6 be another day which will live in infamy?

Ironically, tomorrow, Dec 7, the Pearl Harbor Day, is the first such a historical memento. Was Trump trying to preempt it?

We did not have to wait long. Even before the stroke of midnight in Europe, the French president was the first world among world leaders to part company with Trump.

HOW TO GAIN ENEMIES AND LOSE FRIENDS – IN AN INSTANT

When they first met back in July, the two new presidents – Donald Trump of the US and Emmanuel Macron of France – bonded instantly as the best of pals.

Trump-Macron-friends-Jerusalem

Today, in one fell swoop, with his Jerusalem announcement, Trump undid that friendship and turned Macron into a critic.

Here’s what the French president Macron tweeted this evening:

06 December 2017
23:35 GMT
French President Emmanuel Macron expressed his disapproval of Trump’s decision on Twitter.

“France does not approve the decision of the United States. France supports the two-state solution, Israel and Palestine, living in peace and security, with Jerusalem as the capital of the two states. We must privilege appeasement and dialogue,” he said.

An avalanche of criticisms followed the next day (Dec 7), along with violent clashes in occupied Palestinian territories.

THE DAY AFTER: SOME REACTIONS TO TRUMP’S JERUSALEM ANNOUNCEMENT

In reaction to Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, condemnations continue to mount across the Middle East and internationally. Even the US “friends” are steaming about it.

Eight countries on the 15-member UN Security Council requested a meeting, including the UK, Italy and France, amid claims from Palestine and Turkey that recognition by the US president is in breach of both international law and UN resolutions.

The EU foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, said the bloc had a united position that Jerusalem must be the capital of both Israel and a future Palestinian state. France said it rejected the “unilateral” US decision while the UK prime minister, Theresa May, and the foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, both described Trump’s announcement as “unhelpful”.

The Russian foreign ministry said US recognition risked “dangerous and uncontrollable consequences”.

Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, hailed US recognition of Jerusalem as “historic” and claimed other countries were in contact about following Trump’s lead, but was alone among regional leaders in praising the move.

Saudi Arabia’s royal court called it “unjustified and irresponsible” in a rare rebuke of the US, and the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said Trump had thrown the Middle East into a “ring of fire”.

President of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas said that Trump’s declaration meant that the US “abdicates” any role in mediating the Arab-Israeli conflict. In a televised speech, Abbas said he “condemned and rejected” the US decision, which he said will “serve terrorists” and “bring never-ending wars to the region.”

SOME READER REACTIONS

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic: Ridiculous comparisons. You should really brush up on history. Unlike Moscow or Washington, Jerusalem is also a holy city for the Muslims and the Christians. Maybe you should have said, that’s like claiming the Vatican is the capital of NATO. Which would have been actually closer to the truth.

VIOLENT CLASHES IN OCCUPIED PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES

Meanwhile, slashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli troops have taken place in cities across the occupied West Bank as anger over Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital spilled on to the streets.

The most violent confrontations occurred in Ramallah, Bethlehem and Hebron, where Israeli security forces fired teargas and plastic-coated rounds as hundreds of protesters threw stones and set alight barricades.

In the Gaza Strip, dozens of protesters gathered near the border fence with Israel and threw rocks at soldiers on the other side. Two protesters were wounded by live fire, with one reported to be in a critical condition.

A fresh round of violent protests are expected on Friday at mass demonstrations called to follow Friday prayers.

TOP JERUSALEM CHRISTIAN LEADERS WARN TRUMP OF “VIOLENCE AND SUFFERING” IF US RECOGNIZES THE HOLY CITY AS ISRAEL’S CAPITAL

Trump’s decision to cause “irreparable harm,” 13 patriarchs of Christian churches say

Christian leaders in Jerusalem have just sent an open letter to Donald Trump asking him to reconsider his planned recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The 13 patriarchs and church heads in Jerusalem told Trump that this decision would cause “irreparable harm.”

“We are certain that such steps will yield increased hatred, conflict, violence and suffering in Jerusalem and the Holy Land, moving us farther from the goal of unity and deeper toward destructive division,” wrote the leaders of the Greek Orthodox, Coptic, Catholic, and other branches of Christianity that are represented in the city.

Editorial Comment Re. Biblical Prophesies

IS TRUMP LEADING US ON A PATH TO ARMAGEDDON?

​We live in Biblical times… and that’s not a good​ thing

What the Christian patriarchs yesterday (Dec 6) told the man who professes to be a Christian but acts as if he were an Israeli pawn, is what every child knows: “Let the sleeping dog lie.”

The “sleeping dog” – the Middle East – has been relatively quiet lately.

But no, this Judas Iscariot reincarnate has apparently decided to do what no other American president ever dared to: Poke the sleeping dog in the eye.

There could be only one motive for that and one consequence. The motive: to appease his Zionist handlers. The consequence: Strife, unrest, violence and maybe even another middle-eastern war.

That’s apparently what Israel wants. And what Israel wants, Trump apparently does.

O tempora, o mores… (“What times we live in…”, Lat.).

We actually live in biblical times. Because that’s what the Bible had predicted – see Israel and Jerusalem: The Road To Armageddon.

Are these maniacs in Washington and Tel Aviv suicidal? Or is the Bible wrong?

Either way, the world should brace itself for what is to come. Nothing good, to be sure, in the short run.

So check out this biblical prophesy, but first read this PREFACE.

PREFACE TO THIS BIBLICAL PROPHESY

This writer is aware that the Bible was written by about 40 men over the course of 1,500 years. None of them were writers. Matthew was a tax-collector, John was a fisherman, Paul was a tentmaker, Moses was a shepherd, Luke was a physician, Isaiah was a prophet, Ezra was a priest, and so on.

Notice that they were all MEN. So the Bible inevitably contains at least a sexual bias.The Bible authors also had other biases stemming from their backgrounds and the periods they lived in. 

So a truth-seeker must take the biblical prophesies with a grain of salt. Like, “then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man” (Genesis, 2:22). 

Really?

That said, this thrice-ordained shaman also knows firsthand that it is possible for some men (and women!) to receive direct communications from the spirit realm. 

Finally, as a former war correspondent and geopolitical commentator, this writer also knows that a truth-seeker must consider a variety of sources before forming his opinions, particularly on a subject as complex as the Middle East history and politics.

So take this preface as a warning not to take everything you read in the Bible literally as gospel truth, although much of it really is. So you have to use your own JUDGMENT.


Biblical Prophecy

Israel and Jerusalem:
The Road To Armageddon

“I (God) will bless those who bless you (Israel) and will curse those who curse you” (Genesis 12:3)

The Bible warns the destiny of the World is inseparable from Israel and Jerusalem. The Bible says God would one day re-gather the children of Israel back into their land from among many nations around the world. The Bible says they would be re-gathered in unbelief … God warns He is not re-gathering the children of Israel into their Land because they deserve it, but because His Name and His Word are at stake (see Ezekiel 36:17-23) … and because He loves them. They are His chosen people.

The Bible warns God would then make Jerusalem a world trouble spot. The Bible says all nations of the world will turn against Israel. The Bible warns during this time ‘Gaza will be forsaken’ … and offers a stark warning.

The Bible warns a coming world leader (the ‘Antichrist’) will rise out of 10 nations which once formed the Roman Empire and will enforce a peace plan or treaty (‘covenant’) upon Israel (‘upon the many’ – for many in Israel will be against it) …

And then, after a 3½ year false peace, God warns He will send the children of Israel (and all the nations of the world) through a fiery trial unlike anything in the history of the world, to separate those who will turn back to God and His Word from those who have hardened their hearts against God and His Word (the ‘Apocalypse’).

The Bible warns two-thirds of the people in Israel will be ‘cut off and die’ during this time.

Then, one day when the armies of the world will gather in and around nation Israel (the coming battle of Armageddon) and when all seems lost for the children of Israel, the Bible says a believing remnant will recognize their Messiah from Scripture, and will call upon His Name. He will then return to save Israel.

The Bible also tells us ‘after these things’ the little nation of Israel and the children of Israel will rule over all the nations on Earth, in peace, under her King and Messiah Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha’Mashiach in Hebrew). The Bible says all of the covenants, promises, curses, prophecies, and blessings God has made to the children and nation of Israel will be fulfilled …

Interesting comment by a friend from the Netherlands.

“The most anti-Semitic Jew ever to walk this side of eternity! Netanyahu and those like him defile our Judaic consciousness and conscience” (Abraham A. van Kempen).

Which is why one must be very careful NOT to associate Netanyahu and his cronies, like Jared Kushner and other American Zionists, with all Jews.

Hail to the ‘Freier’ in Chief …

In Yiddish, ‘Freier’ means SUCKER, the worst insult to a Jew. It’s taken me 64 years to realise that I have been a sucker not realising I was until 2014 when I was in the Region, seeing, hearing and smelling with all of my senses the rains of Israeli terror pouring down on GAZA.

All Jews, all Israelis, all the people around the world who support Israeli terror are SUCKERS, particularly Jews and Christians who know better. They are following in the footsteps of the ilk like Netanyahu. Zionism rules and dominates the Israeli zeitgeist beguiling and chaining many Jews into believing in something they are not. These Zionists are suckered into a belief that Zionism is the answer, the Way, the Truth and the Life. Only a sucker could believe that.

And what is it about that face that disturbs me profoundly? Phony? Deceptive? Fake? Imposter? Speaking from all sides of his mouth? Hateful? Inciteful? The most anti-Semitic Jew ever to walk this side of eternity! Netanyahu and those like him defile our Judaic consciousness and conscience. He is more than fake. He is false. He is even a worse freier than all the freiers he leads.

RUSSIA ALSO CONDEMNS TRUMP’S DECISION ON JERUSALEM

“Jerusalem is ours” – Muslims protest around the world

Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov joined an international chorus of criticism over the move by the Trump administration. “The fact is that the statement [of recognition] goes against all the previous agreements,” he said, adding that it divided global communities into two “very, very unequal parts.” Israel is the only nation openly endorsing the move, but some US allies like Canada have refrained from criticizing it too loudly.

Lavrov, who was speaking to journalists in Vienna, said the Trump administration has shot itself in the foot with the decision, undermining their own Middle East strategy. “They previously said, let’s normalize the relations between Washington and the Arab world, and once it is done, the Palestinian issue can be resolved,” he said. “By taking the decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem the Trump administration have undermined their effort to normalize the relations with the Arabs.”

Meanwhile, a wave of protests has swept the Muslim World after Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital. A man was killed and hundreds injured in clashes in the West Bank, while US flags were burned at mass rallies in Iran, Pakistan and elsewhere.

Over 200 people were injured on Friday as violent protests in Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza went into a second day, according to Palestinian officials. Israeli security forces employed tear gas, rubber bullets and even live ammunition to disperse the demonstrators.

Scuffles were reported outside the Old City gates in Jerusalem as worshippers, who were leaving the Al Aqsa Mosque, chanted “Jerusalem is ours, Jerusalem is our capital,” and “We don’t need empty words, we need stones and Kalashnikovs.”

More than 3,000 Palestinians took part in protests in at least 30 locations in the region, the Israeli military said. The unrest began after Friday prayers, when Palestinians began throwing stones at IDF troops.

Elsewhere, the US troops in Afghanistan are on a special ‘Notice to Move’ alert following the US’ Jerusalem decision, according to the Military Times. Donald Trump’s announcement has been met with anger across the Middle East, stoking fears of US troops being targeted.

TAKING SIDES FUELS CONTINUOUS CONFLICT
 
Isn’t 69 years of bloodshed proof enough?
ALTZAR: Thought you may find this correspondence of interest as it provides a historical background to the conflict in Palestine.
“Okay let me get this straight Jerusalem which in the Old Testament was the capital of Israel, long before there were Muslims of any kind, and all these people are violently disagreeing with the decision to Simply recognize a pre-existing condition, and that somehow invalidates Trump’s decision but validates their own by the use of said violence.
Okay this is just beyond stupid.”
Bob Altzar Djurdjevic: Yes, you do know your history. But selectively, it seems. At that, you are following a treacherous historical path back to about 1,000 BC.
Before that, however, Israel was not Jewish. It was a Canaanites’ land (in 2nd millennium BC). And before that who knows… maybe refugees from the Atlantis disaster?
If you use this kind of logic going back 4,000 years or more, you would have to remap the entire world. Which would lead to chaos and global warfare.

More relevant is the fact that over 700,000 Palestinians were “ethnically cleansed”, to use a modern term, after Israel declared independence in May 1948, under the protection of the US government. That’s around 80 percent of the Arab inhabitants of what became the state of Israel.

It is that kind of injustice that has fueled all subsequent wars.
So you see, there is no right or wrong in a protracted conflict such as this. Both sides have committed atrocities and acted as terrorists depending how far back you wind the clock of history.
Which is why the only sensible policy is NOT TO TAKE SIDES (i.e., the opposite of what the US has been doing in the last seven decades). Because supporting one ethnic group against another will provide fuel fo continuous conflicts. Isn’t 69 years of bloodshed proof enough?

Memorial Day 2002 Truth in Media editorial – Revisited

HOW TO WIN THE PEACE IN TWO SIMPLE STEPS

Dump treacherous “ally” (Israel), diversify away from Arab oil

“The only way for America to win the ‘war on terrorism’ in the long run is to disengage from Israel AND from the Middle East oil – both the root causes of anti-American terrorism” (an excerpt from Truth in Media, May 26, 2002

Recent turmoil in the Middle East and elsewhere, caused by Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, reminded me of this Truth in Media editorial I wrote over 15 years ago. It provided a simple solution to the seemingly intractable Middle East problems. Yet even as I wrote that piece, I never expected the US government to implement it. Because war is much more profitable, especially to the “death merchants.”

And so the endless cycles of violence continue, from one generation to another. We cannot think of a better example than that of “PERPETUAL WAR FOR PERPETUAL COMMERCE” – the real New World Order motto which we first discerned in 1993.

An excerpt from Truth in Media, May 26, 2002:

HOW TO WIN THE PEACE IN TWO SIMPLE STEPS

Dump treacherous “ally” (Israel), diversify away from Arab oil

There are a couple of editorial observations we wish to share with you on this Memorial Day weekend in the U.S.

First, a very simple and PEACEFUL ending to both America’s “war on terrorism,” and to our continued involvement in the never-ending Middle Eastern wars, is staring us in the face.  If the Bush administration were really an American government acting in OUR country’s best interests, it could end the senseless fight with one-two geopolitical punches:

  • Punch One… an uppercut to Israel.  Dump this treacherous “ally;” the only “ally” that has ever attacked us, killing 34 American soldiers and injuring 172 others (USS Liberty, 1967); the only “ally” that has sapped the U.S. Treasure to the tune of nearly one hundred billion dollars, while using our money and arms to wage state terrorism against its Arab neighbors; the only “ally” that has brazenly spied on us, and then had the audacity to demand a pardon for its spy (Jonathan Pollard); the only “ally” that continues to spy on us (see Fox TV News series on Israeli “students”, Dec. 2001 – Ashcroft: Tough on American Liberties, Soft on Israeli Spies, Mar. 2002).
  • Punch Two… a plexus to Arab oil.  Reduce our dependence on Arab oil.  Which ultimately means also cease cozying up to the embarrassing totalitarian regimes that have allowed acts of terrorism against Americans to be committed on their soil (see partial list of bombings in the Middle East).  The warming up of the Russo-American relations is a welcome step in that direction, as Russia is a major global energy supplier and an OPEC competitor (see Russia vs. OPEC, Sep. 2000).

But given that at present we import 70% of our oil from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait vs. next to nothing from Russia; and that Russia accounts for 10% of the global oil output versus OPEC’s 40%; it will take a long time before such a policy change gets traction. But “a thousand mile journey begins with the first step,” as Confucius noted.

PEACE DIVIDENDS

The Punch One would remove a major cause of anti-Americanism around the world, especially in Muslim countries.  The Punch Two would take the (economic) punch out of the countries that hate us.  The only way for America to win the “war on terrorism” in the long run is to disengage from Israel AND from the Middle East oil – both the root causes of anti-American terrorism.

That’s no great wisdom.  That’s just common sense.

What are the chances of common sense prevailing in Washington’s foreign policy?  The same as that of true American patriotism… slim to none.  As long as the Bush administration is acting as a proxy of both the Israeli lobby and of the multinational oil companies, the American people will be the victims of both and the designated targets for international terrorism.

JERUSALEM – UPDATE DEC 11, 2017

WHAT IS PUTIN UP TO?

His shuttle diplomacy: Met with 3 presidents in 3 countries in 1 day

There is a good chance that Putin is cooking up something in the Middle East with his shuttle diplomacy today. He met with Assad in Syria, with Al Sisi in Egypt, and finished the day with a meeting with Erdogan in Turkey.

All three countries are Israel’s neighbors and important players in the Middle East. All three are opposed to Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. As is virtually the entire world.

Russia also has good relations with Iran, and of late, even with Saudi Arabia. If Putin manages to bridge the chasm between the Sunny and the Shia Muslims, he just might be able to assemble a formidable opposition to the US-Israeli Jerusalem declaration.

If that’s what this shuttle diplomacy was about, it will be worth watching what follows over the next days and weeks.

PS: On a lighter note, notice the same tie Putin is wearing on all three occasions? 🙂

UPDATE DEC 16, 2017

PATHETIC SUMMIT IN ISTANBUL EXPOSES WEAKNESS OF TOOTHLESS LEADERS OF 57 MUSLIM COUNTRIES

These Muslim leaders are no longer relevant, writes Robert Fisk, a longtime Middle East correspondent for the London Independent newspaper – https://goo.gl/4fns4R

“They represent failed states with neither morality nor courage to show for their presence at the Istanbul summit,” he writes.

“It was just more claptrap from an organization (that’s already changed its name twice) which offers no hope, no initiative, no justice and no future to the people of its collective autocracies.”

DISMAL FAILURE OF MUSLIM LEADERS TO STAND UP AND SUPPORT THE PALESTINIANS OVER JERUSALEM

If there was anything to beat in mediocrity the childish and delinquent declaration by Donald Trump that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, it was the pathetic response from Muslim states. For there in Istanbul this week were all the tired old men to whom we have listened for so many years, none sadder or more woebegone than the ageing and useless “President” of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas.

There were supposed to be 57 heads of state of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation in the Turkish capital, but some were simply too old and senile – the comatose Bouteflika of Algeria, for example – or too busy shouting abuse at other Arabs states or bombing Yemen.

Oh yes, of course, they demanded that the “international community” accept east Jerusalem as Palestine’s “capital” – a capital for a state that doesn’t exist and, at this rate, never will.

It was just more claptrap from an organization (that’s already changed its name twice) which offers no hope, no initiative, no justice and no future to the people of its collective autocracies.

The “world” – an interesting concept in Middle East terms – and America will only become worried if these tired men have courage. Or what we used to call the courage of their convictions.

If America has hurled itself out of peace-making – which it supposedly has, although I wouldn’t count on Abbas keeping his phone off the hook if the White House calls – then these potentates should be considering a diplomatic boycott of the United States, or the breaking off of relations or even a mild but increasingly severe oil boycott. There was a time when they did this sort of thing.

But that’s not going to happen.

It might have been wise if (the Palestinian leader) Abbas had contested the Trump decision at the international court, but the Palestinian leadership is so uninspiring (and corrupt) that I doubt if it even dreamed of such a move.

And that’s the problem. If you have a delinquent American president, you need serious young people – international lawyers, negotiators, experienced diplomats – to defend the peoples of the Middle East. There are UN resolutions enough to apply to Jerusalem and the occupied territories. But no, not a word did we hear of these. It was as if apathy and hopelessness guide these figures. For more, see THE INDEPENDENT – https://goo.gl/4fns4R

APATHY GALORE: PLUTOCRATS ARE WINNING… FOR NOW

And so it goes… like America, like Middle East. Apathy at home, apathy overseas.

Nobody dares challenge the oligarchs. So the plutocrats are winning sowing fear, uncertainty and doubt. The slave mentality is engulfing the world.

Because those who can, are doing nothing. And those who do, are just pissing in the wind.

The world is desperately in the need of a messiah of some kind, a person who would INSPIRE and uplift the spirit of humanity.

Is Putin that guy? Time will tell.

Meanwhile, we’d better not wait that long. We must start to “trust only yourself and you own nag” (a Serbian proverb: “Uzdaj se samo u se i u svoje kljuse”).

UPDATE DEC 18, 2017

US VETOES UN RESOLUTION ON JERUSALEM

All other Security Council members vote for it

US AND ISRAEL: ROGUE STATES

As expected, the US vetoed today the UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution on Jerusalem, which had demanded the American decision recognizing the city as the Israeli capital be withdrawn. All other UNSC members voted in favor of the document.

The French envoy to the UN said in his speech that the US still “should explain compatibility of its decision [on Jerusalem] with the international consensus.” He also added that France “regrets” the outcome of the vote that has become a symbol of 14 UNSC members’ willingness to “confirm their attachment to international law.”

By this action, the United States has effectively taken itself and Israel out of the world community. “What’s good for the goose is not good for the gander,” when it comes to Trump and Netanyahu.

These two governments have now set themselves as international outcasts, leaders of pariah states which do not respect international laws and norms.

Of course, for Israel, that’s nothing knew. That country had already violated over 80 UN Security Council resolutions, and many others passed by the UN General Assembly over the last seven decades (see “Rogue State: Israeli Violations of U.N. Security Council Resolutions” – Foreign Policy – https://goo.gl/hYZAtz).

And the US has backed Israel’s intransigence for the most part. But not always.

Defying extraordinary pressure from President-elect Donald Trump and furious lobbying by Israel, the Obama administration on Dec 23, 2016 allowed the United Nations Security Council to adopt a resolution that condemned Israeli settlement construction.

So never before have the US and Israel been so utterly isolated in the world community as today’s UN Security Council vote has shown.

And the protests around the world, not just in Palestine, are continuing. In Indonesia, for example, some 80,000 people demonstrated today against Trump’s Jerusalem recognition – see the video… https://on.rt.com/8v1k.

Israel’s ‘attack against Christians’: Ancient Jerusalem church closes to protest Israeli tax, land policies

ALTZAR: So you think Trump’s Dec 6 unlawful and inane Jerusalem recognition as Israel’s capital was only aimed against the Palestinians? You will think again after you read this story. 

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, originally built by Constantine the Great in 336 AD on the site where Jesus is believed to have been crucified and buried, shut down indefinitely on Sunday (Feb 25) in protest against a new Israeli tax policy and draft law on land expropriation. The leaders of Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, and Armenian churches announced the closure of the holy site in a joint statement, accusing Israel of a “systematic and unprecedented attack against Christians in the Holy Land.”

A bill which would allow the authorities to expropriate land that was sold to private firms by churches in Jerusalem since 2010 was to be considered by the Israeli government on Sunday. The Jerusalem city authorities have also recently cancelled tax exemptions granted to church-owned commercial properties and are now demanding back payments.

The Christian church leaders argued that the Israeli actions “breach existing agreements and international obligations which guarantee the rights and the privileges of the Churches, in what seems as an attempt to weaken the Christian presence in Jerusalem… “The greatest victims in this are those impoverished families who will go without food and housing, as well as the children who will be unable to attend school.”

“The Jerusalem municipality issued scandalous collection notices and orders of seizure of Church assets, properties and bank accounts for alleged debts of punitive municipal taxes,” Theophilos III, the Patriarch of Jerusalem, Francesco Patton, the Custos of the Holy Land, and Nourhan Manougian, the Armenian Patriarch of Jerusalem, said.

The top clerics blasted the proposed Israeli legislation as “abhorrent… discriminatory and racist,” saying that “this reminds us all of laws of a similar nature, which were enacted against the Jews during dark periods in Europe.” As for the future of the holy site, “we will decide when and how the church will re-open,” they added.

WHY WE SHOULD CARE TODAY ABOUT HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI

WE ARE IN A SIMILAR SITUATION NOW AS THE WORLD WAS IN THE 1930s

JUST SUBSTITUTE RUSSIA FOR GERMANY, AND CHINA FOR JAPAN, AND YOU WILL SEE WHY ZIONIST WARMONGERS ARE DRIVING US INTO ANOTHER WORLD CONFLICT

SOLUTION: TO ACHIEVE WORLD PEACE, WE MUST DO AWAY WITH WORLD RELIGIONS

Over the last five days, I have been publishing a series of stories and editorials on the subject of nuclear holocaust.

Why?

First, to honor the memory of the 225,000 human souls in Hiroshima and Nagasaki who were exterminated in a most brutal way, and worse of all, for no strategic military reason. The war had already been won. The clock was ticking before Japan would surrender. Scores of American military and political leaders said so at the time.

These poor souls, the vast majority civilians, women and children, died to satisfy the bloodthirsty lust for power by FDR, Truman and their Jewish-Zionist advisers.

The second, and perhaps a more important, reason I have been publishing now this series of articles on the nuclear holocaust is because I see that we are in a very similar situation now vis-a-vis Russia and China as we were in the 1930s regarding Germany and Japan. And those who do not learn from history are DOOMED to repeat it. At their peril, of course.

UPDATE NOV 27, 2017

This morning, I saw a picture of this little Japanese girl with a caption “photos not fit to publish in history books.” So I decided to add it to my August piece – WHY WE SHOULD CARE TODAY ABOUT HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI – https://wp.me/p3QU1S-2yJ. Because unless we look at such tragic faces of innocents, we will not understand the monstrosity of those in Washington and elsewhere who have visited such atrocities upon this plant in the name of the “land of the free.”

THE SAME TYPES OF PEOPLE IN THE US ARE HUNGERING FOR WAR NOW

I see the same types of people – the power-hungry, hate-filled rich Zionist Jews – leading the demonization of Russia today, just as their forefathers did it against Germany in the 1930s and against Russia before that (in 1917).  And as their forefathers’ forefathers did it against Russia at the start of the 20th century.

Considering that we now have a eunuch in the White House, surrounded by people who seem more loyal to the Zionist cause and geopolitical interests of Israel than to those of the US, there is plenty to worry about.

“There is no greater supporter of the Jewish people and the Jewish state than President Donald Trump”  (Netanyahu)

Trump Netanyahu Jews

Here’s what I said back in April:

“There is no doubt anymore… Donald Trump is the same as or worse than Ronald Reagan.  “Like Ronald, like Donald, Puppets on String” – my Oct 23, 2016 warning, repeated the day after the election – is sadly coming true.

The New World Order powers that be have surrounded our new president with their loyalists who have managed to turn him in less than three months.  Or maybe he has always been one of them.  After all, it took more than two years for the globalists in Reagan’s White House to turn the president to follow their agenda.”

Add to this explosive mix our corrupt Congress who are also spoiling for war, sticking Russia in the eye with their new sanctions, and we should realize it is time to sound the alarm before it is too late (see A SAD SURRENDER: TRUMP SIGNS THE RUSSIA SANCTIONS BILL,  and “LIKE RONALD, LIKE DONALD”… PUPPETS ON A STRING, Apr 16, 2017).

We’ve been there before, twice in the 20th century. And the results were disastrous.

20TH CENTURY HUMAN CARNAGE: 75 MILLION

post-6141-0-19714700-1380119816

No wonder some 75 million humans perished in the 20th century alone as a result of such policies, according to Gen. Alexander Lebed, a 1996 Russian presidential candidate and a decorated Russian war hero.


Strike 1: Removing and killing the Russian Tsar and his family

THE “RUSSIAN REVOLUTION” WAS NOT RUSSIAN AT ALL

The vast majority of revolutionary leaders were Jews, many imported from abroad

Let’s start at the beginning…

History books today refer to the tragic events in Russia after 1917 as the “Russian Revolution.” There was very little Russian about it. The Russian people were the VICTIMS of a foreign intervention and unconscionable brutality by the Bolsheviks.

Let’s start with Karl Marx, “the father of communism.”  “On both paternal and maternal sides Karl Marx was descended from rabbinical families” (Univ. Jew. Encyc., Vol.VII, p. 289). So Marx was ethnically Jewish. But his parents had converted to Lutheranism.

As for Lenin, the “father of the Russian revolution,” declassification of documents since the collapse of the Soviet Communist Party in 1991 has brought irrefutable proof that Lenin’s maternal great-grandfather was a shtetl Jew named Moshko Blank.

Col. John Beaty, author of the 1951 book “THE IRON CURTAIN OVER AMERICA” – BOOK REVIEW). explains the reasons for why a communist dictatorship suited the Khazar Jewish mentality.

In Russia and abroad in the late nineteenth century, many Khazar Jews had been attracted to the writings of Karl Marx (1818-1883), partly, it seems, because he was Jewish in origin.

The Marxist program of drastic controls, so repugnant to the free western mind, was no obstacle to the acceptance of Marxism by many Khazar Jews, for the Babylonian Talmud, under which they lived, had taught then to accept authoritarian dictation on everything from their immorality to their trade practices. Since the Talmud contained more than 12,000 controls, the regimentation of Marxism was acceptable— provided that the Khazar politician, like the Talmudic rabbis, exercised the power of dictatorship (emphasis added). 

Various elements of this restless aggressive minority nurtured the amazing quadruple aims:

Col. Beaty offers further proof that the “Russian Revolution” was anything but Russian.

In Lenin’s sealed train, “out of a list of 165 names published, 23 are Russian, 3 Georgian, 4 Armenian, 1 German, and 128 Jewish” (The Surrender of an Empire, Nesta H. Webster, Boswell Printing and Publishing Co. Ltd., London, 1931). [i.e., 78% were Jewish].

“At about the same time, Trotsky (Lev Bronshtein, Ukraine-born) arrived from the United States, followed by over 300 Jews from New York and joined up with the Bolshevik Party.”

According to the data furnished by the Soviet press, out of 556 important functionaries of the Bolshevik State. . . in 1918-1919, 17 Russians, 2 Ukrainians, 11 Armenians, 35 Letts, 15 Germans, 1 Hungarian,10 Georgians, 3 Poles, 3 Finns, 1 Karaim, 457 Jews (i.e., 82% were Jewish). (excerpt from “THE IRON CURTAIN OVER AMERICA” – BOOK REVIEW).

Thus under Lenin, whose birth-name was Ulianov, and whose racial antecedents are uncertain [actuallt his maternal grandfather was a ‘shtetl’ Jew named Moshko Blank], and under Leon Trotsky, a Jew, whose birth name was Lev Bronshtein, a small number of highly trained Jews from abroad, along with Russian Judaized Khazar and non-Jewish captives to the Marxian ideology, were able to make themselves masters of Russia.


Strike 2: Infiltrating both Soviet and American governments intent on inciting war against Germany

RULING RUSSIA WITH AN IRON FIST AND MACHINE GUN

As the decades passed by—after the fateful year 1917—Judaized Khazars kept a firm hand on the helm of the government in the occupied land of Russia. In due time they built a bureaucracy to their hearts‘ desire. The government – controlled Communist press ―issued numerous and violent denunciations of anti-Semitic episodes, either violence or discriminations.

Also, “in 1935 a court ruled that anti-semitism in Russia was a penal offense” (Univ. Jew Encyc., Vol. I, p. 386). Among top-flight leaders prominent in the middle of the twentieth century. Stalin, Kaganovich, Molotov, and Litvinoff all have Jewish blood, or are married to Jewesses (excerpt from “THE IRON CURTAIN OVER AMERICA” – BOOK REVIEW. Also see  “THE JEWS AND BOLSHEVISM”).

LIKE GERMANY, LIKE RUSSIA… PEACE ENTREATIES REBUFFED

Like Russia today, Germany made a number of overtures to the US government and Britain in the 1930s hoping for a peaceful solution.  But the intransigent warmongers would have none of it. The influential Jews in America and Britain were spoiling for blood. Only a total defeat of Germany would do so that they could rule the world.

And rule they did. Because they had infiltrated both the US and Russian (Soviet) governments. And were able to pull the strings of both against Germany.

FDR and his wife empower US leftists, many Zionists among them

When FDR took power in 1933, the leftist Zionists surrounded him with their people so that one of his first acts as president was the recognition of the Soviet Union. They also drove FDR to rebuff Germany’s overtures and join Britain in the war.

British PM neville Chamberlain later said that “America and the world Jews had forced England into the war.”

WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND

“Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him. “For all who draw the sword will die by the sword.” (Matthew, 26:52)

But those around FDR and Truman who thirsted for war and bloodshed were not men of the Bible, nor did they care about massacring millions of innocent civilians, including women and children.

By contrast, Christians, like FDR’s and Truman’s chief of staff, Admiral William Leahy, an Irish-American who was the nation’s first five-star fleet admiral, wrote in his diary on Aug 8, 1945 about such “barbarous” conduct of war:

“There is a certainty that it [the a-bomb] will in the future be developed by potential enemies and that it will probably be used against us.” He also objected to the a-bomb’s use for moral reasons: “In being the first to use it, we had adopted an ethical standard common to the      barbarians of the Dark Ages” (William D. Leahy, I Was There, pg. 441).

What goes around, comes around, as the saying goes. Indeed, there are now many other nations which possess such terrible weapons.  Like North Korea.

And then after WW II, these Zionist warmongers also pitted the US and USSR against each (Cold War). Some of them also worked as spies, passing the US nuclear secrets to the Soviets.

But their greatest accomplishment was probably that both the US and the USSR voted to establish the State of Israel in 1948 – the Zionists’ ultimate goal.

EMPHASIS ON “KILL” RATHER THAN “VICTORY”

It would appear, therefore, that one thing the “Semites” (both Jews and Muslims) have in common is a zeal to exterminate the “less worthy” humans of other persuasions – be it other Semites (respectively) or Christians. Theirs seems to be the philosophy of exclusion and separatism, not of inclusion and tolerance. Which is why they preach inclusion and tolerance in America – in the form of globalism and multiculturalism, while practicing exclusion and separatism while – by enslaving the Christians or other non-Semites.

War seems to have suited the purposes of the powerful Judaized Khazars element, dominant in the inner circles of the Democratic Party in America, Col. Beaty says. They regarded with enthusiasm the killing of as many as possible of the native stock Americans of English, Irish, Scotch, Welsh, German, Dutch, Scandinavian, Latin, and Slavic descent.

This non-Christian power bloc therefore endorsed “Unconditional Surrender” and produced the Morgenthau Plan, both of which were certain to stiffen and prolong the German resistance at the cost of many more American lives, and many more German lives, too.

Unfortunately, President Roosevelt became obsessed with the idea of killing Germans [and Japanese? Bob Dj.] rather than defeating Hitler [or Japan]. Perhaps taking his cue from his Commander-in-Chief—a term Roosevelt loved—General Mark Clark told American soldiers of the Fifth Army that, “it is open season on the Anzio bridgehead. There is no limit to the number of Germans you can kill” (New York Times, February 13, 1944).

Such a stress on “killing” or “kill” rather than on a “cause” or on “victory” is definitely at variance with the traditions of Western Christian civilization, Col. Beaty says.. It is also costly in the life blood of America, for “killing” is a two-edged sword. An enemy who would surrender in the face of certain defeat will fight on to the end when truculently promised a “killing”—and more Americans will die with him.  (excerpt from “THE IRON CURTAIN OVER AMERICA” – BOOK REVIEW).

20TH CENTURY HUMAN CARNAGE: 75 MILLION

post-6141-0-19714700-1380119816

No wonder some 75 million humans perished in the 20th century alone as a result of such policies, according to Gen. Alexander Lebed, a 1996 Russian presidential candidate and a decorated Russian war hero.


 

Strike 3: WILL THE 21ST CENTURY BE BETTER OR WORSE?

The answer to that question depends on whether or not we continue to allow evil people to use religion or ideology to divide us and set us against each other. And this leads to a nuclear holocaust, the carnage of the 20th century may look benign in comparison.

IS A NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST IN THE CARDS FOR 2017?

So is a nuclear holocaust in the cards for 2017? That’s what this Economist magazine cover implies (Dec 5, 2016).

The London Economist, which professes to be a “liberal” publication, actually expresses the financial and political views of the world ‘oligarchs’. The magazine is owned 50% by the English branch of the Rothschild family and the Agnelli Family. The remaining 50% is owned by private investors, editors and staff members.

ROTHSCHILDS’ WARMONGERS ARE AT IT AGAIN

Here they go again… Rothschilds’ warmongers in London are at it again. Stoking the fires of war. This time, with a larger nuclear mushroom with images of North Korean and US presidents in it on this Economist cover.

Date of the issue? Aug 5, 2017 – the day before the 72nd anniversary of the Hiroshima atom bomb that killed at least 140,000 people.

And then they have the audacity to use this GIF (right photo below) as a way to solicit money and subscriptions for their cause?

Have they no shame?

Shame? What’s that. To feel such emotions you have to have scruples.

There’s no such thing when it comes to these warmongers who have been stirring up trouble and financing wars and mass murder world over for over 100 years.

 

So what’s to be done to prevent that?

First, people have to learn the truth about root causes of the 20th century wars. That is the purpose of this series of articles about the nuclear holocaust in WW II.

Second, we need to become enlightened beings who refuse to be manipulated by lies and deceptions of the evil forces who seek to divide us. Like the Rothschilds, for example, and their Economist media flagship.

TO ACHIEVE WORLD PEACE, WE MUST DO AWAY WITH WORLD RELIGIONS

Religion has been the fuel of the world leaders’ quest for power and domination for several millennia.

Rabbis, mullahs, imams, popes, priests… they are all birds of the same feather. They preach hate instead of love. Even when they profess to preach love for one another.

Religion has been at the root of most wars in the last 2,000 years. Crusades, jihads, other “holy wars” – they are all tools by which the few devious ones manipulate the many ignorant ones.

We have to stop that vicious cycle. We must not allow them to keep on manipulating us into hating and fighting each other. There is only one God and each and every one us is a spark of the Divine. It’s what we do with it that makes us “good” of “bad. And it all starts with that knowledge and awareness.

We don’t need any rabbis, mullahs, imams, popes, priests… as intermediaries to be with God and to receive the Light of God.

Logic 101, therefore, would suggest…

TO ACHIEVE WORLD PEACE, WE MUST DO AWAY WITH WORLD RELIGIONS.

Will we have the wisdom and the courage to do so? The fate of our unborn children and of Mother Earth depends on it

CHINA WILL PREVENT US FIRST STRIKE AGAINST NORTH KOREA, Government Official Daily

BEIJING TO WASHINGTON: 没有, Nyet, Nein… {NO WAY, JOSE)

That did not take long… for one of the major world powers to respond to US bullying of North Korea, and Pyongyang stupidly taking the bait. This morning, China said “NO” (没有, Nyet, Nein…) to the US first strike.

China will prevent the US and South Korea from carrying out strikes on North Korea and trying to overthrow the leadership there, but will remain neutral if Pyongyang launches missiles at American targets first, the state-run Global Times said today.

“IT ONLY TOOK 2 HANDGUN BULLETS TO START WORLD WAR I” (ALTZAR)

Only yesterday, I replied as follows to one of my FB readers who thought we could get away with it scot-free after bombing North Korea to smithereens:\

“I can’t believe that an intelligent and obviously well-informed man as you are would believe such nonsense – that the US could just obliterate a country with nuclear strikes, and the world would just sit and watch? It took only 2 handgun bullets in Sarajevo to start World War I, remember?”

CHINA SENDING ITS SHIPS IN RESPONSE TO ‘US PROVOCATION’ IN SOUTH CHINA SEA

Meanwhile, the US is continuing to poke its finger into China’s eyes, not just North Korea’s. Two days ago, the US Navy sailed the ‘USS John S. McCain’ (no relations to our “fraud hero”) past an island in the disputed Spratly chain in the South China Sea, US officials told media. It’s the third mission to challenge China’s claim on the territory under the Trump administration.

Again, China’s response was swift and furious.

“The Chinese army immediately sent warships (to the area) in accordance with the law to implement the identification of the US ship and warn it off,” the Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson said yesterday.

“The US provocation also forced the Chinese side to take measures to further enhance the national defense capability,” the ministry added.

On March 23, 1999 at 22:17 UTC (2:17 PM PDT), the Secretary General of NATOJavier Solana, announced he had directed the NATO commander U.S. General Wesley Clark, to “initiate air operations in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.” On March 24, 1999 at 19:00 UTC (11 AM PDT), the NATO bombing of Serbia started.

And now, here’s the editorial this writer published the morning of March 24, 1999 at the original Truth in Media website.

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY… THE DAY WHICH WILL LIVE IN INFAMY

MARCH 24, 1999

The New Day of Infamy

Mark this day – March 24, 1999! It may be remembered in history as a new Day of Infamy. Just as was December 7, 1941, the day the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. Except that this time, it is the American-made bombs and pilots that are delivering hell to Serbia on behalf of the forces of Evil.

By his order to launch air strikes against Serbia, NATO and President Clinton have entered uncharted territory in mankind’s history. Not even Hitler’s grab of the Sudetenland in the 1930s, which eventually led to WW II, ranks as a comparable travesty.

For, there are no American interests whatsoever that the NATO bombing will either help, or protect; only needless risks to which it will expose the American soldiers and assets, not to mention the victims on the ground in Serbia.

Bombing Serbia is an act of raw, wanton aggression and violence by a power-hungry Clinton administration. No wonder most Americans who write to us say they are ashamed of it. But shame may quickly turn to blame (of Clinton), if the flames of war in Serbia engulf other nations, possibly even Russia.

May God help all innocent people whom Clinton and his neo-colonial NATO allies have put in mortal danger!”

PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA

perth-9

One year later, on or about March 24, 2000, I gave a speech in Perth, Western Australia, at an event commemorating and honoring the victims of NATO’s war on Serbia.  The title of the speech was… (this is an excerpt):

IN MEMORIAM: WESTERN SUNSET, EASTERN DAWN

A Gang Rape of a Small Nation 

A military alliance of 19 nations and 780 million people; with over half of the world’s gross economic product, possessing two-thirds of the global military power, ganged up on a tiny nation of 10 million.  For 78 days, NATO terrorized the people of Serbia, dropping 23,000 bombs and missiles on them in 36,000 sorties.

More than 2,000 Serbian civilians and 576 soldiers died in these savage attacks, 79 of them children.

Yet the citizens and the army of Serbia remained unbowed and unkowed!  This is not hearsay.  I saw their defiance with my own eyes during the six days I spent under NATO’s bombardment in April 1999, including a night duty guarding the Brankov Bridge in Belgrade with nothing but their lives.

For that reason,  I told the Serb people at every stop of my September 1999 “Tour de Serbia”, that it was my privilege to bow my head before them in admiration of their courage and love of freedom.kosovo-memorial

And then I did it. [bow]

Their exemplary resistance to a foreign aggression against such overwhelming odds inspired millions of patriots across America and around the world. They staged hundreds of protests of their own.  Your presence here on this March 24, 2000, the first anniversary of The New Day of Infamy, also attests to it.

And now, I would like to ask you to join me in honoring all NATO victims with a silent prayer or a minute of silence, as befits an ancient nation which has learned to mourn as well as honor its dead.

Let us pray… [pray]

NATO WAR AGAINST SERBIA – 15 YEARS LATER: WHY?

http://wp.me/p3QU1S-eA

Back in the 1990s, I was a war correspondent and geopolitical commentator. My articles about the Balkans wars were published in the Truth in Media and the major media outlets in the US and around the world. March 24, 2014 is the 15th anniversary of the New Day of Infamy. That’s what I called that day in an editorial written on March 24, 1999, just before the NATO bombs started to fall on Serbia. This article and the short film within it are dedicated to the victims of the NATO bombs. They are my memorial to the indomitable human spirit. The music I recorded and used in this video – the theme from “Chariots of Fire” – was chosen by the Spirit for me. Because it also celebrates the strength and indestructibility of the human spirit.

There is no expiry date on murder, let alone mass murders

Je me souviens – I remember

There is no expiry date on murder, let alone mass murders. And yet there are war criminals still walking free on American streets. Some have even held high offices in US government. The purpose of this article is to remind ourselves of the fact that we harbor war criminals among us. And not to let them off the hook. Their crimes against innocent civilians have stained the American flag under which they were committed. So we must make sure that we distance ourselves from them if we are to regain the honor and respect that the Stars & Stripes once commanded around the world.

Just because these individuals have not been formally charged with war crimes does not mean they will  escape justice, either in this world or the next. Lest we forget, powerful dictators and warmongers look untouchable only for a while. Before they fall into the dustbin of history…

NATO WAR AGAINST SERBIA – 15 YEARS LATER: WHY?

A MOMENTOUS DAY IN HISTORY: JUNE 28, ST VITUS DAY

ALWAYS ON SUNDAY: HISTORY WAS MADE MANY TIMES OVER ON THIS DAY, SEEMINGLY ALWAYS ON SUNDAYS

Remember the famous Melina Mercouri movie and the song, “Never on Sunday?”

Well, when it comes to Serbian history, momentous events seem to have taken place “always on Sunday.”


 

June 28, 1389 – BATTLE OF KOSOVO

Kosovka_devojka

It was a Sunday June 28, 1389 when two mighty armies faced each other on the Field of Blackbirds (Kosovo). Reliable historical accounts of the battle are scarce. The invading Ottoman (Turkish) army, led by the 70-year old Sultan Murad, numbered between 27,000 to 40,000 fighters. The defenders’ Serbian Prince Lazar’s army had from 12,000 to 30,000 troops, according to historians.

Murad_IKnez_Lazar,_Vladislav_Titelbah,_alternateThe bulk of both armies were wiped out in the ferocious battle to the death. Both the Serb leader Lazar and the Ottoman Sultan Murad lost their lives in it. So did most of my Djurdjevic ancestors who fought at Kosovo. Those who survived, retreated with Queen Milica, Lazar’s wife, to Zeta (today’s Montenegro).

The Serbs withdrew, bleeding. The Turks withdrew, bleeding. King Tvrtko of Bosnia (whose troops fought on the side of Serbia) proclaimed the Battle of Kosovo a great victory.

The bells of the Notre-Dame in Paris rang for four days to celebrate Serb victory at Kosovo. 

Alas, the celebrations across Europe were short-ilved.

After the battle, Lazar’s son, Stefan Lazarevic, raced to fight a Hungarian invasion and to put down a rebellion of certain nobles. He accepted to be a Turkish vassal so he could solidify his rule (which he did).

His sister and Lazar’s daughter, Olivera, became Bayazit’s (Ottoman ruler after Kosovo) favorite wife and wielded great influence over him. Serbia regained its independence in 1402, only to fall to the Turks again in 1459 (other Serbian states: Bosnia – 1463, Herzegovina – 1482, parts of Montenegro – 1499). Serbia was subjugated by the Ottoman Empire for 345 years (1459-1804).

Despite the defeat, the Battle of Kosovo on the Field of Blackbirds has been etched in the hearts and minds and consciousness of every child born to a Serbian mother. Serbian kids suckle it with mother’s milk. Kosovo is Serbia’s Alamo. And today, on St Vitus Day, the whole country remembers it.

By the late 17th century, the Ottoman Empire expanded as far west as Vienna. The Turks laid a siege of the Habsburg Empire capital from July 17–Sept 12 1683. The expedition by the Turks eventually resulted in their defeat by a combined force led by John III Sobieski of Poland. The end of the siege of Vienna marked the beginning of the end of Turkish domination in eastern Europe.
