The thrust of yesterday’s article assumed that Putin would send troops into Syria in support of the Assad government. Of course all Moscow committed to was air support.

Air support may buy Assad a bit of time, but it, in and of itself will not and cannot be a game changer. That can only happen with boots on the ground.  And in fact by bombing ISIS positions, (as opposed to saying they are bombing ISIS positions as the US- France and Turkey does), it is only likely to strengthen ISIS all the more.

It will act as a powerful recruitment campaign for new ISIS fighters. And it is likely that the Gulf States will react by increasing funding and Erdogan by increasing material and logistical support.

The only real game changer that can be made in the Levant would be the introduction of Russian troops.

It still holds true, that in the Levant war there can be no winner. All that can come about is a negotiated peace through Balkinization of the region, or for the area to fall into chaos as per Libya.  Russian troops in Syria will encourage a political agreement. Bombing will accomplish next to nothing.

Putin is only beginning his bombing campaign because Assad’s troops are tiring and his military position is eroding. Bombing alone will not change this. So the assumption is that if Moscow is serious about saving Assad, (which will encourage a political solution) it will have to sooner rather than later introduce troops.

There have been no new news articles on Red Pills because there has been no real news for a very long time. Pretty much everything that has been happening globally is an extension of analysis made in past articles.

For those who want to understand the macro picture around them all they need do is read those articles.

The Iran “nuclear” agreement with the US was a small piece of news. As Red Pill readers know the agreement had little to do with nuclear. It was mostly about creating a comprehensive agreement with Tehran on its position relative to Cold War 2, which Obama had previously declared against Russia and China.

Would Iran move into the Western camp or at least stay non- aligned in this Cold War that we are only in the very early stages of?

From a US standpoint it seems as if ruling elites are divided on Iran. The majority, as represented by all Republican presidential candidates as well as Hillary Clinton on the Democratic side favor a hot war with Iran.

Obama’s peace agreement was intended to make it more difficult for these people to start such a war after he leaves the White House. It is arguably the only truly peaceful thing Obama has done in his more than six years as US president.

Of course getting around the Iran agreement is as simple as Hillary’s statement to the Brookings Institution that she would support the deal UNTIL she determined that Tehran was in violation and then she would attack.

Ostensibly she would learn that Tehran was in “violation” of the agreement by using the same Intel operatives who determined that Saddam had WMD and that Assad used chemical weapons at Ghouta.

Until now Tehran has not become a part of the new Russia- China defense system for a host of reasons, most of them rooted in history.

And until now while both Putin and Khamenei, (Iran’s supreme leader) have helped Assad in Syria, there has been limited coordination as well as assistance.

This is all about to change. Obviously long in the planning, Moscow has finally decided to enter the fray, with Beijing as always now quietly taking its back.

Putin is making the very high-risk move of committing Russian troops to support Assad and the Syrian government. The downside for Russia could mean its soldiers being caught in a political, cultural, tribal and religious swamp in Syria and perhaps Iraq as they once had been in Afghanistan.

But apparently Geo Political strategists in Moscow believed that this gamble would be worth it. For starters it opens the door to Tehran for much closer cooperation, first within the Levant and then in a growing partnership with Russia and China.

This also puts the Hillary Clinton’s and Jeb Bush’s in the US on notice that an unprovoked attack against Iran, (based on Empire“Intel” that it is building a nuclear weapon) is likely to, as Obama loves to say have “consequences”.

Thirdly this throws Russia and China’s hat into the ring to let Washington- Ankara- Riyadh- Tel Aviv- Paris- London etc. understand that they are no longer going to have their way in the MENA, creating terrorist mercenary groups like ISIS and Al Nusra to informally prosecute the West’s regional agendas.

This gives Putin a massive propaganda advantage, which he is well availing himself of. Since none other than the Empire has defined ISIS as the most dastardly of evil “terrorists” as well as the fiction that the “terrorist” group Al Qaeda was behind 9/11, then fighting them in Syria is fighting terrorism by the West’s own standard.

This is the kind of simplistic rhetoric that Westerners particularly Americans understand.

“Are you for us or against us? Are you for terrorism or against it? If you are against it, then why are you not joining us in fighting the “terrorists” (who in reality we all know wink wink you created and support to this day)?”

It is calling the bluff of Obama. Hollande, Cameron, Erdogan. Salman, Netanyahu et al.

The creation of ISIS, Al Qaeda and Washington’s aggression that led to the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya and Yemen were not done accidentally either.

Just because Russia- China and Iran are entering the fray in the Levant more directly, is unlikely to change regional policy goals for Washington.

The Americans and their vassals are going to have to appear as if they want peace in the region and that they oppose ISIS and Al Nusra, while of course continuing to support them.

And continuing to support them they will, no matter how many fake “bombing” missions of terrorist positions they will claim to make.

Washington’s response to Putin entering the war in Syria will be “fine let the Russians die there”. And in order to accomplish that the US and its vassals will redouble the arms they give, (through Turkey) to ISIS and Al Nusra, as well as expand the funding for them through their Gulf State bankers.

The challenge for Washington is that they are now going to have to soften their rhetoric against their very own “terrorists” in general and ISIS in particular. They will need to give them a propaganda makeover. Washington has begun to do that with Al Qaeda, (which it actively supports today in Yemen) anyway. Soon all of us who read and understand English and other Western languages will learn that ISIS was never all that bad after all.

Also as Tehran expands into the Levant militarily, (albeit with the help of an awakened bear to the north) sectarian polarization between Sunnis and Sh’ias will increase.

The war will act as a huge recruitment campaign among young Sunnis for ISIS, especially if the funding spigots from Riyadh and Qatar are opened even further.

Meanwhile the back room agreements between Washington and Tehran, that has ruled over Baghdad since the Americans withdrew in numbers from Iraq seems once again ready to collapse. Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has agreed to share intel with Russia on ISIS operations in his country.

That means that Tehran has given Haider a green light to cooperate with Moscow. That is directly against Washington’s regional interests, interests that Haider was supposed to represent as well.

It is a direct slap in Obama’s face.

How far and how deep Russia involves itself in the region remains to be seen. Of Russia’s population of 30 million Muslims, the largest group are Sunnis. For them Moscow is going to be on the wrong side of the Levant wars.

The people of Syria are caught between the devil and the deep blue sea. If Assad were to fall, (as Putin stated) Syria will become a failed state. On the other hand, is that worse than a war that will grow more widespread and ever more sectarian?

And to the degree that Putin lends Russian (Chinese) military support for regional Sh’ias and the West counters by supporting regional Sunnis, this will open a third front in Cold War 2.

The Levant will add to the fronts in the Ukraine (NATO expansion in Eastern Europe) as well as US naval expansion in the China and South China Seas, both of which are being met with a massive expansion of Russian and Chinese defense and counterattack capabilities.

There is a difference in Syria to the other two Cold War fronts which came about due to Washington’s aggression. Up until now the Levant and much of the rest of the region had been Washington’s de facto play ground, for the creation of terrorist assets as well as regional chaos. Except in Chechnya, American policies have only impacted Russia at the margins.

So Putin’s military entrance into the Levant is, (much more than the Crimea) an overtly aggressive move. And Washington and all its vassal states have been rocked back on their heels by it.

While it is possible that Putin won’t go too far militarily, usually actions like this have one or more specific goals. And one has to use whatever assets are necessary, (including time) in order to achieve them. That is why military incursions far from home tend to be like quicksand, easy to enter and hard to get out of. Be assured that Washington will use this principle in counterattacking.

Unlike the far more dangerous regions of Eastern Europe and the Eastern and Southeastern Pacific, there is a relatively easy outline for a Great Power peace accord in the Levant. That is because the goal of Washington in the region has long since been to Balkanize it into tiny hostile states mostly along sectarian lines.

At this point that would suit Russia, China and even Iran just fine. The question is how will this new map look? And that is what this war in the Levant is going to be about.

Any peace accord in the Levant however, is still a long way off. This war, as a new front in Cold War 2 is just beginning.

The media in the last few days has been full of the horrors of the battle of Ramadi, which ISIS came out on top of. The Daily Mail On Line headlined; “Iraq braced for the Battle of Baghdad:……..just 60 miles from the capital”.

Past readers of Red Pill Views understand a number of issues that should clarify the latest headlines. First and foremost ISIS is a creation of Washington, Ankara and the Gulf States, with support from Jordan, Israel, France and the UK. Its purpose in the region is to dismember Syria and Iraq, (controlled by Alawites and Sh’ia) creating a balance of terror that is intended to circumscribe the expansion of Iranian Sh’ia influence.

Iraq is a Sh’ia state, where the vast majority of people hate ISIS as well as other Sunni Jihadis. The exception is Anbar province, where there is a Sunni majority. It is a huge desert area. While it is Iraq’s biggest province by far, it is sparsely populated with less than 2 million people, nearly half of whom live in Ramadi.

Since the fall of Saddam Hussein the tribal people of Anbar have been torn between siding with Sunni extremists, (sponsored by the usual suspects above) or living under Sh’ia rule out of Baghdad. After the American war in their country, these people chose to reject Al Qaeda, (the Jihadis du jour of the time) and accept living under Maliki.

That was a big mistake as Maliki was extremely repressive of Sunnis. While the Americans are trying to limit the influence of Tehran, they accept that most of what will be rump Iraq will be a natural protectorate of Iran. So the Ayatollah Khamenei and Obama agreed to ax Maliki, in the hope of getting a gentler kinder Prime Minister in Baghdad, one who would get more Sunni support, (in places like Anbar) for the government.

Iraq’s present Prime Minister Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has not proven much better however, than Maliki in his treatment of Sunnis and so ISIS, crazy as they are. are getting support in Ramadi, enough at least to push out the still worthless Iraqi army.

Haidar has held back his Sh’ia militias, who were put together by and are made up of 1/3 Iranian revolutionary guards. 1/3 Sh’ia Iraqis soldiers, (who are not allergic to battle) as well as other Sh’ia volunteers. The reason why Haidar held back is, although the militias can seriously kick some ISIS butt, they also dole out brutal treatment to Sunni locals who then become radicalized.

In any case the militias are now being sent in, so the battle of Ramadi is far from over. Behind Haider and the militias is of course Iran.

Unleashed the Iranians would wipe out ISIS in Ramadi almost as soon as their troops would arrive. But the reason Obama created ISIS in the first place was, (in part) to insure a limitation on Iranian power. So for Washington to OK, an Iranian wipe out of ISIS, would defeat the purpose of its creation.

Even in a scenario where ISIS would be able to hold on to Ramadi, there is no chance whatsoever that it would be able to do any more than occasionally harass Baghdad with “terrorist” attacks. Sunnis are far outnumbered and any serious attack on Baghdad would be viewed as an existential threat by Tehran.

And to control Ramadi is one thing, to control the vast desserts of Anbar quite another. So ISIS is hardly taking over the world. For Washington most ISIS victories are good, even if short lived. it will make them a magnet for angry Sunni young men everywhere, who will then ostensibly join and help to limit Iranian regional influence.

But more importantly, as ISIS grows and expands, it should develop an international arm that can create “terror” attacks in the West, frightening its sheeple into accepting an all seeing, all knowing Techo Fascist police state. And that is the number one goal, (the colonization of their own populations) of the elites who own/ control the Mega Bank- Corporate states of the West.

The United Nations has reported that in 2014 there were more refugees, (both internal and cross border) than there have been since World War 2. About 18 million of them are cross border refugees, people trying to emigrate from their native land. A huge majority of these refugees have been fleeing from wars, directly or indirectly created by the United States, Britain, France, Turkey and Gulf States.

Around 2 1/2 million are from Afghanistan, a nation dismembered by George W. Bush and Tony Blair.

Another 2 1/2 million people have fled from Syria, a country that has been dismembered by the United States, Turkey, France and the Gulf States who have created, armed, trained, financed and given logistical support to every single anti government entity that initiated and are presently prosecuting that country’s civil war.

There are 1.2 million refugees from Somalia, a country devastated by the support of Washington and Riyadh for Al Shabaab,  Washington has done this in part for Geo Political reasons. That is that Somalia, like Yemen, (the new escalation of Washington’s regional wars) controls the shipping lanes to the Gulf of Aden leading into the Red Sea, where 3 1/2 million barrels of oil flow daily, mostly to Europe. Washington also knows that there is oil in Somalia, (the Puntland fields) and possibly a lot more off of its coast.

There is also another 635,000 refugees from the Sudan, a country the American have finished dismembering, creating a failed state called South Sudan. Again the reason was oil. South Sudan was the part of the Sudan where all the oil was. According to the World Bank; “South Sudan is the most oil-dependent country in the world, with oil accounting for almost the totality of exports”.

Another 1/2 million refugees are from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, (DRC). The DRC is the richest area of resources in Africa, with according to Forbes over $24 trillion in known “untapped deposits of raw mineral ores, including the world’s largest reserves of cobalt and significant quantities of the world’s diamonds, gold and copper.”

In Africa, Washington pits political, tribal, regional and religious factions against each other, giving money and weapons to whoever will best help it to maximize profits for its Multinationals. In the DRC that has led to this rich country being “the world’s least developed ………in terms of life expectancy, education, standard of living and key health indicators, like maternal and child mortality.” And Washington has helped to create and fund wars in that country that according to the International Committee of the Red Cross have killed more 5.4 MILLION people. 

Over the past 20 years of Washington instigated and fueled DNC wars, how much wealth has been extracted from the country by Anglo American and French transnationals and how much has gone to the people? The half million refugees from the DRC today, represent the continuation of this bleeding.

And then we have another 400,000 refugees from Iraq. George W. Bush and Tony Blair know well who destroyed their country.

The United Nations Commission on Refuges, (UNCR) from whom these figures come, do not count the 5 million Palestinian refugees, who have fled from the US and British backed conquest of their lands by European Zionists.

But the 17 million figure for international refugees given by the UNCR, pails compared to the 38 million who are internally displaced. That is people who have lost their homes and livelihoods and had to flee to an uncertain fate in a hoped for more peaceful part of their own country. The number of the internally displaced has soared by 11 million in 2014 alone, where 30,000 people every day became homeless. 

Among the new countries with soaring rates for internal displacement last year was Nigeria, with more than 1.5 million people. That has been due to Boko Haram, which is a CIA extortion racket again being done for oil. 

In Libya there are now 400,000 internally displaced, thanks to then French president Sarkozy, Obama and Hillary Clinton’s dismemberment of the country.

And now in the Ukraine there are now 1.2 million internally displaced thanks to Obama’s Maidan Square coup. And There are also 900,000 Ukrainians from the Southeastern Provinces of the country who have fled to Russia thanks to a Washington backed civil war in the country waged by its political puppets in Kiev.

These numbers are not even counted in the UNHR’s figure of 18 million refuges.

And now in 2015, since Washington and its vassal state Saudi Arabia are starting a war against Yemen, besides the dead, as a humanitarian crisis grows, the refuge problem both external and internal will also soar.

In the world of internally displaced people, the worst is still Syria at 7.6 million and Iraq 2.2 million. Those are both places where Obama and his stooges have done their very worst.

With the others wars, still in full swing and the new war in Yemen having only just begun, it would be a sure bet to say the number of refugees for 2015 will print significantly higher than this 2014 report.

There are many, many people who believe that tails wag dogs and that countries within the Empire act autonomously on major issues. Those people were likely to have believed that Saudi Arabia attacked Yemen all on its own, only being green lighted by Washington to do so.

The reality is the opposite. All major Geo Political and military moves of the Empire come out of Washington. Vassal nations of the Empire like the Gulf States are either asked to participate in operations or intimidated to do so. In the case of the Saudis relative to Yemen, little intimidation was needed.

This was made amply clear over the past few days as the Saudis, (who after pumping their fat oil drenched chests, telling the world how they were going to invade Yemen after bombing it) promised to end the bombing claiming “that they had achieved their military goals”.  Exactly how that had happened no one knows.

The Saudi’s political goal had ostensibly been the forcing of their appointed dictator, masquerading as an elected president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back into power in Sanaa. And the bombing campaign hadn’t even come close to achieving this. In fact as far as the world could see, the bombing campaign hadn’t achieved anything at all other than the destruction of some buildings and the killing of some civilians.

The Saudis bombed a country, (Yemen) with no air force and called the murders and mayhem it wrought “Decisive Storm”. Hmmm where did these geniuses think up such names? Do the fat Saudi “royals” send their brats to the US military’s school of nomenclature aimed an engineering public support for each new global aggression?

In any case the Saudis wanted to back out and after bombing the crap out of people, transform themselves into “peace makers”. And they even had nomenclature for that operation, “Restoring Hope”. Really, who writes this stuff?

Obama was sooo pissed at these Fat Sheep candy asses, that he publicly rebuked them, telling them that their job was unfinished, (it had barely begun). This was rare, as public disagreements between Washington and its vassal states, are usually done in back rooms outside of the public spotlight.

The Saudi “peace movement” hadn’t come about out of thin air. The fat princes must have figured out that their attacks against the Houthi of Yemen would, as Obama loves to say have “consequences”. The long oppressed Sh’ia of Saudi Arabia who physically sit on top of most of the country’s oil wealth, could well be radicalized, leading to “terrorist” attacks against the Royals and their oil assets. Oh my!

Riyadh, now understanding that Washington doesn’t give a crap about its problems, quaking in their Guccis are continuing with their air campaign. But you can bet the house that if the Saudis are absolutely ordered to send troops in, it will be lite, very lite, only seeking out the stupidest and most disposable to send to be slaughtered in Yemen.

What are hard working Washington planners to do when the only proxies they have for a boots on the ground operation in Yemen are the pathetic candy ass Saudis? Well there is always Washington’s long term and sometimes trust worthy friend Al Qaeda. Over the years the two have been through thick and thin together. The map of Yemen below tells the tale.

Yemenmap

 

Note that the Houthis control, (left, light green part of the map) the shipping access to and through the Red Sea, leading to the Suez Canal through which 3.5 million barrels of oil per day flow to Europe. Washington is pissed that these impoverished upstart Houthis might want a piece of the action and charge what would effectively amount to a toll to allow shipping to pass.

Also note in the pink central area of the map, which represents how much of Yemen is controlled by America’s old friend Al Qaeda. And unlike the Saudis who only do luxury hotels, cruises and hookers Jihadis will fight.

So it came as a huge relief to the Fat Sheep of the Gulf and as good news for Washington, that Al Qaeda “seized control of Riyan airport, (in Mukalla, South of map in pink area) and moved to secure their hold on the city’s main seaport, which is also an oil terminal.”

Now technically the Saudis can ferry arms and weapon systems directly to Al Qaeda, who can then do the fighting for them. That is more the MO of the Fat Princes anyway, who always loathe to get their soft hands dirty. But again Riyadh may back down, given the likelihood of the Houthis and Iranians arming and organizing Saudi Sh’ias for counterattacks, (which will be called “terror” attacks) within the kingdom.

If the wimps of Riyadh won’t even arm Al Qaeda in Yemen, Washington will find someone else who will.

But there are still flies in Washington’s ointment. First is that Al Qaeda has already been receiving its arms, weapons and money from Washington, through the Gulf States and it has not been effective in fighting the Houthis in what is for Washington the strategic, (read money making) part of Yemen. Secondly once Jihadis of all types get their hands on their own, (usually oil) financing they show themselves to be fickle friends and move on to pursue their own agendas.

And finally why should Yemen’s Al Qaeda care to secure International shipping lanes through the Red Sea for Washington unless it gets paid to do so? So for Washington what difference would it make should Al Qaeda control these waterways or the Houthis? Could Washington trust either of them to do its business?

Sometimes it sucks to be a 24/7 Empire having the tough job of raping, looting and pillaging the entire planet with typically only bad help.

Continued from “Islamophobia And The Global Clampdown Part 2

Muslims however, overwhelmingly believe that violations of Sharia law should be punished. Of the peoples polled in the MENA, South Asia and Southeast Asia a large majority believed that stoning was an appropriate punishment for adultery. In Torah, (the early books of the Old Testament, also called “The Laws of Moses”) God too demanded a death sentence, (then by stoning) as the punishment for adultery. But few Christians or Jews would adhere to that today. And this would obviously be anathema in even Muslim European societies, (Albania, Bosnia etc), much less Britain, France or Germany.

In the MENA and South Asia, a majority, or near majority of those polled, believe in the death penalty for Muslims who wish to convert to another religion. In Europe beliefs such as this would be seen as the equivalent of a declaration of war by most Christians and their civil states, should a Euro Muslim wishing to covert to Christianity be attacked much less killed for his or her choice. Only a minority of Muslims in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories believe that honor killings, (the killing of a person, usually but not always a woman because they have dishonored their families typically over sexual issues) are never called for.  

And there have been no polls as to how many Muslims living in Christian Europe believe in a parallel Sharia legal system that would have its own enforcement arm, much less a belief that the stoning of adulterers, or the killing of converts, or honor killings is desirable. And there are no polls that I found anywhere as to public support, or lack of it among Muslims for female castration or the stoning of prostitutes.

So while moderate Muslims and their friends may say that very few people actually adhere to these ancient and barbaric concepts, others who are not Muslim friendly say that a strong and dangerous minority do.

Because official institutions, (other than Pew) have refused to do any studies, that does not make these potential problems go away. Not wanting to shed light on something that people are loathe to see, does not make it cease to exist. 

One main reason why the Jews failed so miserably in adapting to life in Europe, particularly from the 16th through the 18th century is because they wanted to live under Talmudic law, which in many ways also conflicts with local law. An extreme example is that under Torah God tells the Israelites that they cannot steal, but that all of the laws of Torah were given only to the Israelites, (sort of as a test group for human evolution) and that those laws do not yet apply to anyone other than the tribes of Israel.

This was enshrined in the Talmud. And many Jews who lived under that set of laws, believed that they could not cheat a fellow Jew, but it was OK to cheat a non Jew. This was not a recipe for popularity when Jews lived as a minority in a Christian or Muslim region.

Euro Muslims should consider the experience of Euro Jews very carefully, relative to their belief in Sharia and desire to live in Non Muslim Europe.

Today Islam is widely tolerated among the majority of people in countries like the UK, France and Germany where most have a favorable opinion of Muslims.  But as economies deteriorate and social institutions strain, expect that these numbers will lessen dramatically.

There is also the religious element. Christianity in Europe, as a real matter is dying. Few, especially under 50 years old identify themselves as practicing Christians. This has left a spiritual vacuum that, in good times is filled with consumerism and careerism. But in bad times, which is now effecting newly forming ghettos of despair, the lack of a common faith, (which acts as an adhesive for people and gives guidelines of how to live in bad times as well as good) has led to a poverty of the soul and spirit as well as social deterioration.

The clear symptoms of social degradation among poor Christians are crime, violence within the community and even in the home, drug and alcohol abuse and prostitution. Where marginalized Christians live side by side with Muslims, many will note that no matter how poor, practicing Muslims tend to have strong families and manage to minimize social ills. That is a great attraction for young Christians who are disgusted with the values of their nominally Christian neighbors, (and find no guidance in their faith), to convert to Islam. And as nothing is more fervent than the convert and especially among the young, many will be attracted to Islam’s more radical elements.

True Christians should thank their Muslim brethren for showing those who have lost their faith, (through example) a way to live, in harmony with the teachings of Christian, (as well as Muslim) scriptures. And the spiritual despair of impoverished and hopeless Christians, (as well as some who are in the middle class) and their attraction to Islam, should act as an alarm bell to Christian leaders that they are failing to adapt Christian teachings to the daily realities of their congregations.

But all too often Jingoist Christians, instead of thanking Muslims for warning Christian leaders that they are failing, will blame Muslims for stealing Christians through conversions. In other words they will blame Muslims for their successes in keeping strong families, living together in reasonable harmony and thus acting as a model for Christians.

In good economic times with an expanding pie for everyone, all of these problems might be avoided or minimized. But in the coming long and calamitous downturn, these religious problems and frequently deep divisions in values will exacerbate the general intolerance against especially Muslim immigrants.

 Even if we do not know exactly what the values are of Muslims in Christian Europe, given what the values are in countries from which they originated, there is every chance that large segments, (even if minorities) are going to be sympathetic to these values, (stoning for adulterers, the death penalty for conversion, honor killings etc.) which are anathema to present European values.

These segments of the Euro Muslim community even if not radical now, (IE violent) are the tinder that if carefully nurtured can create civil strife and along with grave economic pressures, chaotic conditions throughout Europe.

If you are an owner/ controller of the Mega Banks and Corps, (MB&C) who control the Empire, this is all to the good. Chaos for them is only a helpful breaking down of societies so that they can be restructured to their liking. The match to ignite the tinder is “terror” attacks by people perceived to be Muslims. This can come from of a lone individual spontaneously going berserk after a long history of economic and frequently social repression, or through an attack by long cultivated Jihadi groups, either acting on their own to radicalize Euro Muslims, or doing it as a favor for the CIA.

Or if no Muslim will perform a needed “terror’ attack, then the CIA- Mossad will do it for them in their name, as per 9/11.

No matter who would perform the terror attacks, the purpose will always be the same, to spur Islamophobia in Europe, which will then lead to greater and greater isolation and repression of Euro Muslims, which in turn will ignite the tinder of Islamic “radicalism” and spread ever more “terror” throughout Europe.

Then the political representatives of the MB&C, will tell the people’s of Europe that the only way to control Islamic “terrorism”, other than harming innocent Muslims, or letting a few crazies control immigration policy, is for them to sacrifice their privacy and civil liberties and allow their governments to erect all seeing all knowing police states in which all citizens will be monitored 24/ 7 with the data bases of each of them continuously updated along with their personality and character profiles. That way not only can terrorism be stopped, but so can child pornography and organized crime.

For the global elites, the Orwellian, techno- Fascist police state can be sold as a win- win to sheeple everywhere, including Muslims. That because the state will be able to easily weed out the “bad” ones, (as it will for non Muslims as well) leaving the good ones to the peaceful enjoyment of their faith and style of life.

Welcome to paradise.

The main theme from Part 1 of “Islamophobia & The Global Clampdown”is the plan of Global Elites to create a global government using three main prongs. In the Anglo 5 + Eu it is to create absolute population control in all knowing, all seeing surveillance police states. Against major countries like China a Russia the goal is to dismember the countries and create regime change. And in other countries where Washington, considers the country or its leadership unacceptable, it is to create the Empire of Chaos. “Radical Islam” is seen to be a tool that can help to accomplish all of this.

In the West and particularly in Europe the ambiance that will make this achievable is economic disintegration. And unless there is some out of the box miracle coming, Greece is only the canary in the coal mine. The economic future, (the main trend) of the EU nations, and all of Europe is bleak. Those who own/ control the Mega Banks & Corps, (MB&C) globally have given the Europeans permission to devalue the Euro. And that is helping exports, (and thus particularly Germany). But this is only a short term fix. The problems of Europe and the EU are structural, too much debt, too little economic growth to pay these debts and weak banks.

To the degree that European economies weaken, unskilled and semi skilled workers become a permanent underclass and social safety nets erode,  xenophobia will grow and snowball. This will not just be against Muslims, but against all immigrants and legal workers from poor EU nations like Romania and Bulgaria, as well as illegal workers from these countries and countries like the Ukraine.

But the situation will be worse for Muslims, not just immigrants but also first generation and even second generation nationals of Euro countries. This will be exacerbated by not just their numbers, but the economic and educational levels of Muslims in Europe. In the US there have been few problems even as the country is importing around 100, 000 Muslims annually. Muslims are still well less than 1% of the population in the US and their profile as to education and income is average among Americans. In other words, even though there may be people who dislike or distrust Islam, Muslims in America are not an oppressed minority.

It is strange and suspect that in the highly polarized environment within Europe, relative to Islam few polls have been taken, (at least available in the English language).

Informally it seems that most Euro Muslims were, (along with other immigrant groups) imported to do unskilled and semi skilled labor. While I have no data to support this, (data welcomed by readers) I would guess that Euro Muslims have much lower educational levels and skill sets than locals do. Moreover with Europe’s public educational systems under financial stresses that will only worsen, upward mobility for second generation low skilled immigrants will be difficult.

Among all immigrant groups however Muslims are the least likely to be able to easily integrate within Euro Cultures. The primary reason for this is Sharia law, which means Islamic law. Christianity does not have, (within its Biblical texts) a comprehensive legal system. Judaism has within the Old Testament, particularly in what is referred to as the “Laws of Moses”, or what the Jews call Torah, laws prescribed by God. But they are not comprehensive. The Jews did create a post Biblical comprehensive set of laws in the Talmud. But few Jews live under Talmudic law today.

In Holy Qu’ran however God creates not just a theology for Muslims but a complete legal system and a way of life. It is this that is referred to as Sharia. And pretty much all practicing Muslims will believe in it, because it is integral to their faith.

In a hallmark study Pew Research, (the best and least political of polling institutions) did a study on Sharia law and Global Islam. It found that in the Middle East- North Africa, (MENA) and in Sub Saharan Africa the vast majority of Muslims favored Sharia law to be the law of their country. But many Muslim countries who have a civil legal system, allow Sharia as a parallel legal system, (run informally through the mosques) for family law and property disputes. All polled nationals in the Muslim countries of Central Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia and the MENA wanted at the least, such a parallel legal system.

The potential problem with parallel legal systems is that all legal systems must have a means of enforcement. What happens when an enforcement arm of Sharia law. through the Mosques, conflicts with a nation’s civil law? To the degree that dual legal systems function in Muslim nations, the Civil system must be constructed to make allowances for the Sharia system. But that is not going to happen in non Muslim nations.

In non Muslim Europe any informal Sharia legal system, cannot have any enforcement arm beyond the social ostracism of those believed to have broken its laws.

Those who own/ control the Mega banks- Corporations, (MB&C) have a plan, that is an integrated, flexible framework for global control ending in a global government.

The primary form of global “terror” is Imperialism, today the purview of the Anglo American Empire, ((First tier Anglo 5+ Israel, second tier Western Europe + Japan + the rest of North America, (minus Cuba and Nicaragua) third tier South Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines, Colombia, Chile, much of Eastern Europe and most of the MENA, (The Gulf States, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Tunisia, Algeria etc.)). On the fourth tier might be a few sub-Saharan African countries like Rwanda as well as Afghanistan.

This Empire is run out of Washington, (political and military) and New York and London, (financially). All of it works as an integrated whole for the subjugation of all humanity and most importantly including the peoples of their own countries, especially the Americans.

Where there are major sovereign nations that the Anglo American Empire cannot control, such as Russia and China they look to dismember these countries with the view of regime change,  the installation of puppet rulers in the place of those who presently rule.

When the lieutenants of the Anglo American Empire cannot do that, (or sometimes even if they can) they intentionally create the Empire of Chaos. That is happening now in many part of the ME, Central Asia and throughout much of Africa. This is because broken divided nations are weak and chaos can at times be useful. Over time however, people everywhere hate chaos and long for order. And that is exactly the order that those who will put together a global government intend to give to them.

The Jihadis of the MENA and Central Asia were all created, funded, armed, trained and given logistical support by Washington, the Gulf States and Turkey. With secondary support from Israel, Jordan, France and the UK.  All parties involved were, at least in part in it for their own purposes which occasionally conflicted. Sometimes when Jihadis get their hands on resources and independent financing, (as ISIS has done) they break out, into at least partially having their own agendas.

While the Empire has long used mercenaries to create regime change, it is Obama who has made this the centerpiece of his Geo Political and military policies. There are two reasons why Washington has created Jihadis. The smaller reason is that, although Washington has in the past worked constructively with Iran, (most notably in Afghanistan and Iraq), it does not like, nor trust the regime in Tehran. In the MENA Iran is the ONLY fully independent and sovereign Muslim state.

Sunni Jihadis in the Levant were created to circumscribe and limit Tehran’s regional influence. That is why ISIS, no matter how rebellious must be nurtured. Just like Tehran its power must be circumscribed as well, to create a balance of sectarian hatreds in the Levant.

The greatest reason for the creation of Jihadis, however is so that they can used as useful idiots to create an all seeing all knowing police state in the countries of Empire, particularly in the US. Those who own/ control the Anglo American Empire need a free hand, (with no push back at their base) to engineer and manufacture the global government. And in order for that to happen they must have absolute control of their populations, particularly that of the Americans.

For that to happen people within Empire must be willing to voluntarily cede what is left of their sovereignty and civil liberties. And the driver that will get them to do that is FEAR!!! Those who own/ control the MB&C have been extremely successful in creating a nation of fear and repression in the United States. And we are only in the beginning of this process.

The US, the UK and Israel are evolving into the models, (eventually for the world) of an all seeing, all knowing police state with each citizen under 24 hour computerized surveillance, with constantly updated data bases and profiling. If that seems a bit far fetched, remember the words of the the great hockey player Wayne Gretzky, who said; “skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been”.

If Washington and London don’t have that kind of control quite yet, those who own/ control the Anglo American Empire intend to bring it in much, much sooner than even those who have the least trust in government will be able to imagine. But then again what about citizen push- back? It is the job of Jihadi “terror” campaigns to minimize that.

The majority of Sunni Muslims of the MENA and Central Asia have been repressed, controlled. impoverished, kept ignorant and beaten down since the days of colonialism, (which have not ended) 100 years ago. This is now fermenting great anger against the Anglo American Empire, among many who understand what has happened to their people and what is still happening. These are the perfect recruits for “terror” campaigns against Western targets.

Meanwhile in the global economy, we are entering a period when much of human labor is going to become redundant. That because of robotic production facilities with embedded 3D printing. This will create massive unemployment in Western economies, and create labor supply pressures that will lower the wage bases of most while dismantling social safety nets. Downward mobility will be more common than upward mobility.

This trend is so new in the prosperous countries of the Empire, that most citizens, (just as in the early ’30s) want to believe that it is a temporary phenomenon. That things will improve soon. They won’t. That is because unlike the ’30s the problems are deeply structural, based on un- payable levels of global debt, ($200 Trillion) and a debt trap in which more and more debt is needed to be taken on by citizens directly, or through their governments, for lower and lower levels of global growth.

Into this mix, those who own/ control the MB&C are pouring a great deal of immigrant labor, (legal and illegal) most of which is redundant upon arrival. That is they are willing to bid for the jobs of locals at much lower wages, or being the cat’s paw for forcing the wage base lower especially for unskilled and semi skilled labor.

Where immigrants don’t technically take local jobs, it is because they are willing to work for sub standard wages. That creates a labor pool in which industries in Western countries, that only need low skilled workers are created for their exploitation. Whereas if very cheap immigrant labor didn’t exist, such industries would have to be outsourced. Internal industries would have to be able to meet the much higher wage base demands of a much smaller and therefor more empowered local labor force. To be profitable such industries would need higher skilled labor. That in turn would keep pressure on governments for affordable educational systems and allow for upward mobility. Mass immigration kills all of this.

In both the United States and in Europe there is a massive push back against this flooding of the labor market. But in much of Europe the immigrants have also been Muslims. It is no accident that they have been imported at the exact time when the banking Empire known as the EU, (as it is presently constructed) is slated to fall apart, which will leave endless debts and economic chaos in its wake.

So Muslims as well as other immigrants will find labor markets, in which at best they will have to work for low wages, frequently taking jobs away from locals, who respond with anti immigrant or specifically anti Muslim sentiments. These immigrants will be thrown into new ghettos, where as cheap disposable labor they will have few few avenues of advancement and be more and more stuck as a permanent underclass, which has existed for years in the United States.

Tomorrow “Islamophobia & The Global Clampdown Part 2

Geo Political sacrifice is not the same as the sacrifices that people are sometimes willing to make for loved ones. Giving with no thought of receiving anything in return.

Geo political sacrifices are like the sacrifices made in chess. That is one gives up a piece seemingly for nothing. But the players doing it believe that it will improve their long term strategic position. So that over time they will eventually get back far more they have just given.

In the article published two days ago here entitled; “China- Russia Dump Yemen At the UN”, it was implied that the votes of both countries at the UNSC, that not just permitted but encouraged the Washington- Riyadh led unprovoked military attacks against a sovereign state, was a massive failure of geo political diplomacy and long term vision.

China was the worse of the two, actively supporting Washington’s Yemen policy and hypocritically propagandizing for it in ways that would smack of the New York Times or Washington Post. It should be noted that the UN mandated weapons embargo is only against the Houthis and NOT Al Qaeda which has a massive presence in Yemen and who the Houthis are fighting.

Yemenmap

 

The pink area on the map above is Al Qaeda controlled. One can only wonder why the organization whom the Americans and the world officially blame for 9/11 is not a part of an arms embargo? And in fact by denying arms to Al Qaeda’s enemy the Houthis, this UN resolution is effectively in support of Al Qaeda.

You should also be able to see the light green area on the left of the map that is controlled by the Houthis, which just so happens to give them some control over the shipping lanes to the Red Sea and Suez Canal. More than 3.4 million barrels of oil move through this waterway every day. And up until now one thing that both Russia and China can agree upon, is that the Americans have done a good job in securing these shipping lanes for their commerce.

And neither Russia or China, (especially China which is more dependent on regional oil) were willing to possibly have oil shipments disrupted for the principle that you do not make unprovoked military attacks against a sovereign state. In other words neither country was willing to sacrifice anything for possible disruptions to global shipping.

This is a particularly short sighted mistake. A real Empire such as the Anglo Americans presently enjoy, have frequently make strategic sacrifices. A Face Book friend of this authors asked what kind of sacrifice has Washington ever made?

Here is a perfect example. Since World War 2 Washington has allowed, even encouraged countries, to have economic polices that keep their currency exchange to the dollar artificially low. By doing so they could then develop an export industry aimed at taking market share, (against American products) within the US. Over the past 40 years this has especially been done with the countries of East Asia most notably Japan and China.

The results, (the sacrifice) for the US was the weakening of some industries like automobiles and steel and the virtual destruction of others like garments and consumer electronics. Washington seemed to get nothing in return for this. But upon closer examination these sacrifices led to the exportation of trillions of US dollars, few of which were returned to the US and were then used for global trade. The US dollar then became the indispensable global currency.

Washington used these exported dollars as a spiders web to tie its prey together and addict them to a currency that it and it only controlled. Today over 80% of global business transactions are settled in dollars. And once a country holds trillions of them, as does China and Japan they then have a vested interest in perpetuating the system. They are indeed dollar addicts. That means the Americans can borrow pretty much as many dollars into existence as they want and even if they can never repay these debts, no one is going to challenge them, because everyone is way too invested in the system. If, at least as this time the dollar system were to fail, it would be catastrophic for all nations.

Meanwhile since the world’s economies are so dollar dependent, Washington, (through its Central Bank) can artificially create booms and busts as it sees fit. The classic example of that was when the Fed printed and exported endless dollars in the late ’70s. The results were that commodity prices, and consumer inflation went through the moon. And with inflation interest rates soared as well.

The people’s of commodity producing nations were encouraged to borrow huge amounts of money, (to expand their businesses) at what turned out to be high interest rates, convinced that the value of their commodities would always rise and they would be able to easily handle their debts. Then the Americans turned the valve off of dollar creation.

Commodity prices collapsed as did interest rates. That meant disaster for those commodity producing countries who had borrowed at high rates and expected to pay back with their ever increasing earnings.

This was nothing new for American bankers. They did exactly the same thing within their country to small farmers during the 19th century. It is how they bankrupted them and then effectively stole their land.

Anglo American global aggression can be reduced to a single word, “sovereignty”. It functions exactly as the mafia, alternatively bribing and then threatening people everywhere so that their Mega banks and Corps can take control of the legal regulatory environment of countries so as to bleed them for all they are worth.

Obama has recently declared Cold War 2 against both China, (the Pivot) and Russia, (the Maidan coup) with the hope of destroying the territorial integrity of these countries and eventually creating regime change, where an Empire puppet would rule. These are attacks against the sovereignty of the people of Russia and China.

But the vast majority of the world’s people are neither from the Anglo 5, or Russia, or China. And they are well used to the Anglo American Empire’s attacks on their sovereignty.  As China and Russia, (at least together) may have the capacity to resist the Empire’s aggression, the world looks to them to offer a better model. One where the sovereignty of all nation states will be respected and peace will come about not through unprovoked aggression and conquest against an ostensibly weaker neighbor, but though the enlightened self interest of countries who are tired of humanities sad history of war and destruction.

in our age of WMD, (of which there will always be new and more virulent forms); these weapons and weapon systems will proliferate and create either wars in which genocides will be the rule, or an enslaved Orwellian global police state where no human freedoms as we know them will exist.

If China and Russia only want to defend their own asses, (in this case at the expense of the people of Yemen) that’s fine. That’s what humans have always done. But by saying in effect that we will willingly sacrifice your sovereignty for even small gains, Moscow and Beijing are saying that if they win Cold War 2, the new order will be every bit as bad as the old one.

And the far bigger problem of today is not Cold War 2, but a humanity with minds capable of scientific and technical “achievements”, that can wipe themselves and each other out of existence, but which has not shown that it can synchronously mature and adapt to its own inventions, so as to be able to live with them or better still use them for peaceful development.

If this fails to happen it really doesn’t much matter who wins Cold War 2. In the end it will be all of us including the peoples of the Anglo 5, Russia and China who will lose.

If the world, (especially at the grass roots) is going to side with Moscow and Beijing in their struggle for their sovereignty, people will need to know that the sovereignty of others is important to them as well.

In the sad Yemen vote at the UNSC, both Russia and China, (especially China) threw the ball away, sacrificed what was big and important for something small, and what will be in the end trivial.

I hope that both Putin and Xi can grow into the shoes of global leadership. They need to put on big boy pants.

In the good old days before the false flag of 9/11, Washington prosecuted its Imperial agenda “lite”. Yes of course the Americans were trying to destabilize countries, dismember others and create regime change in still others, but in the period between Vietnam and the war in Afghanistan, Washington was relatively restrained.

While It was a perquisite of Empire that the Americans create worthless dollars and exchange them for the goods and services of the world, Washington has also served to police the world’s trading routes so as to maximize global commerce. During the 15 years between 1992 and 2007 the economies of Russia and China boomed as never before. This was not lost on the leaders of either country. It was why even with the constant annoyance of Washington trying to dismember the Russian Federation and bring old Soviet Republics into NATO, Vladimir Putin called the Americans his “partners”.

And until the Wall Street financial scam of 2007- 08, which hurt China badly, Beijing was happy with its export based, (IE dependent on the American Empire) economic growth model.

Yesterday both Moscow and Beijing came out in de facto in support of Saudi Arabia’s unprovoked aggression against its neighbor Yemen. The only possible reason for this is that Yemen is not seen to be within a sphere of influence of either Russia or China, and that the security of shipping through the Red Sea and the Suez Canal, which the Americans have long provided for free, trumps any form of ideology.

This is indeed sad. The United Nations is a creature created of, by and for the Anglo 5 + EU. Its purpose was and is to internationalize Washington’s agenda whenever possible. That so the running dogs of Imperialism could claim that their will, represented that of the “international community”. As a real matter the ONLY check and balance that prevents Washington from disbanding NATO and using the UN in its place, are the vetoes of Russia and China.

The primary job of the UN, why it was supposedly created, is to safeguard its member states from unprovoked attacks, that invariably lead to wars. Of course starting with the UN’s support of Washington’s unprovoked aggression against Korea in 1950, (which had been suffering through a 5 year old civil war) the world could immediately see that this institution was not about world peace, but about acting as a cover for imperial expansion.

Some of the worst UN supported imperial aggressions, have sadly come about when Russia and China have failed to act as a check and balance against Washington.

The last time that happened the nation of Libya was destroyed.  While it is easy to blame Obama, Sarkozy and Hillary Clinton for this, it should not be forgotten that both Russia and China de facto gave their support. An abstention in the UNSC, when the destruction of a nation is on the table, only means that you want to hide under it and wash your hands of responsibility.

But neither President Xi nor Putin were in power in March 2011, when China and Russia went along like cows, with the UN’s “no fly” resolution that sealed Libya’s fate. It was a despicable moment for both countries, and made them every bit as responsible as Washington and Paris for what happened afterwards.

One would only hope that another UN resolution, that would be a thin cover supporting imperial aggression against a sovereign state could never happen again. That because Russia and China would veto it.

Well it just did happen.

Yemen has been in civil war almost as long as the country has existed. But the latest version of Yemen’s civil war, had become a proxy war because of the growing rivalry and sectarian differences between the Sunni Gulf states and Sh’ia Iran. While the Sh’ia Houthi, who were and are winning the war in Yemen are from a very different sect from the Iranian leadership, one that is much less threatening to Sunnis, they were still backed by Tehran.

The UNSC Yemen resolution yesterday that creates an embargo against shipping arms ONLY to the Houthi was a thinly veiled attempt to bring Washington and Riyadh’s puppet Hadi, (presently hiding in Saudi Arabia) back to power in Sanaa. China’s approval of this, ostensibly supported by President Xi is sad. The China Daily headlined; “UN Council demands Yemeni parties resolve differences through dialogue” How exactly is there supposed to be “dialogue” when one side is armed and the other isn’t, and when the group under embargo is under air attack as well, (with UN impunity) from a neighboring country?

And China’s “The Global Times” echoes “China calls on Yemen’s Houthis to implement UN resolution“. Why should they? If the world had called upon Mao to stop his revolution in 1948, should he have done so? Mao would have rightly told the world that the Chinese revolution was no one’s business but China’s.

Why is a revolution in Yemen China’s business, or anyone else’s hiding under the false authority of the “international community”?

Russia was little better, abstaining essentially because the arms embargo would only effect the Houthi and not those whom they are fighting.  But Russia failed to condemn Saudi aggression on Yemeni soil and if they really didn’t like the unfairness of this resolution, why didn’t they veto it?

If Russia and China are to take real international leadership in opposing the imperial interests of Washington, they will need to expand their vision globally and not allow relatively small national interests to interfere with it.

The main principle however, Tehran has been very quiet. It remains to be seen whether they will comply with this UNSC resolution or use it as toilet paper, which is all that it deserves.

In any case yesterday’s UNSC resolution was just another failure on the part of the United Nations to bring peace anywhere. The best that can be said for this resolution, is that it will have no effect.

But yesterday neither President Xi nor President Putin covered themselves with glory.
