flip-city news from Ukraine & Crimea

This is the War and Peace of the ‘War, No Peace allowed’ in one of the Nato-repurposed  2.0  cold war proxy wars against Russia.  I know it’s long, but it’s all of a puzzle.  Given its length, were I a reader, I’d focus on the Ukraine/Russian warships story, as a hella lot’s gonna break tomorrow, including at the UN. So far Vladimir Putin and Sergei Lavrov have refused to be drawn into responding to threats of war against The Bear, but what might be the flexion point?  Given that, I’ve chosen to give some background to what’s afoot already.  Yeppers, it’s all copy/paste, but transposing is even more impossible in my haste.

have you ever even heard of Gladio B?

I’d only recently learned of it, and  quite accidentally.  Now most of us are familiar with Operation Gladio. This is the most concise version of Operation Gladio I was able to find, essentially: ‘part of a post-World War II program set up by the CIA and NATO [as well as MI-6] supposedly to thwart future Soviet/communist invasions or influence in Italy and Western Europe. In the absence of Soviet invasion, it seems to have been to discredit left-wing groups and politicians through the use of “the strategy of tension,” including false-flag terrorism. Think most recently: violent provocateurs Venezuela, same for Nicaragua, now Haiti again (with police snipers), where else in Our Backyard just in the past year or two?

A Report from the DC Peace Congress

But first, I’d like to say a few words about war and militarism.

This nation was founded on the original sins of genocide and slavery.  In 1967 at Riverside Baptist Church Martin Luther King, Jr. later called the US the largest exporter of violence on the planet, and had called out Amerika for its triple evils of militarism, racism, and capitalism.

Génocidaire Paul Kagame, Friend of the Empire

And he’ll never spend a day in the Hague Prison due to the fact that his vast war crimes have been so successfully and breathtakingly  white-washed over the past two decades.

It may be that you’d rather not read this as it’s longish and immensely depressing; I’d have preferred not to need to do the research, paste it together, wake in the night seeing his nasty, smug face…and the images of those he’d killed so ruthlessly.  But in the end it seemed important to me that the least we can do is to bear witness to the grievous deeds of the Faces of Evil Our Rulers befriend.  Kagame is one of them.

#TridentJuncture: more NATO military aggression on Russia’s borders

You’ll find more quotes from Lombardo at this RT link to ‘Ice’s melting: Will Arctic become ‘a new battlefield for oil like the Middle East’?, plus the NATO Tweets demonstrating that the ‘Practice Drills’ are afoot, as is this one from Jens Stoltenberg with this message: “Good luck to all the men & women participating in #NATO exercise #TridentJuncture, starting in Norway today. We are sending a clear message that NATO stands ready to defend our nations & preserve the peace.”  (not provocative, it is?)

once upon a time we gave Peace a Chance

(Pershing II missiles being transported away from a US base in Heilbronn)

Will John Bolton rescind it?  By all accounts he was the maniac who’s convinced his Boss Tweet to pull out of the INF (Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces treaty).  Bolton will be in Moscow today and tomorrow and will discuss (cough) the issue with Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov, National Security Advisor Nikolay Patrushev,  FM Sergei Lavrov, and possibly Vladamir Putin on Tuesday.

an exposé of Pierre’s Intercept by the excellent Whitney Webb

(the ‘Bana’ psyop holding a bellincat T-shirt)

In my ‘All the Manufactured News That’s Fit to Believe™’, wd, Oct. 3, 2018; Café version, C99% version, I’d mentioned that the Intercept had done at least four four smears of Julian Assange, glorified the White Helmets psyop, and had featured this Tweet by Sharmine Narwani: “When @TheIntercept sounds exactly like the NY Times: Resident Syrian-nun-basher Jeremy Scahill interviews “leftist” Noam Chomsky who calls #Syria‘s jihadi-busting govt a “murderous regime” & thinks US troops should remain illegally in the sovereign state”  with this link to the Intercept.  I hadn’t checked the dates as to whether or not some were after WikiLeaks had published the CIA Vaults 7 and 8, come to think of it.  But certainly after those publications was when WikiLeaks was thrown off the anonymyzing donations funneled through the Freedom of the Press Foundation that Julian, Michael Ratner, and a couple others had started.
