I will be gone all day Friday 13th so enjoy your open thread.
As for me, I plan to spend a day deep in the Florida wilderness alone with my wife (my wife and nature are my two addictions which I need to ‘fix’ in order to avoid severe withdrawal symptoms)
Open thread below :-)
Cheers and hugs,

#Iraqi media reports the arrest of three US and #Israeli military advisers for allegedly aiding #ISIS.
Sweden give 100s of billions to Poroshenko and warmonger against Russia.
Either you are off by a few zeros “100s of billions” or you are missing a few cells in your brain!
Maybe your brain could understand the meaning to “typo” if it was not concentrating so much on insulting other people. Can’t you get it that he probably meant 100s of millions instead of 100 billions?
@ David Chu,
Q: …or you are missing a few cells in your brain!
R; Lao Tzu stated, many moons ago, “If you have too many yourself, you should share them with others…”
Did you miss that line, David?
[LaoTzu/Tze = ‘The Old Master’ and remembered in Tao Te Ching’]
In contrast, Mr. Obama’s executive order by which Venezuela was labeled “a threat to [US] national security” did not require approval from any legislative body.
Venezuelan law mandates that it must be specified to what end the enabling powers will be used. In this instance, Maduro wrote the proposal together with the deputy attorney general, Reinaldo Muñoz, to preserve the country’s “integrity…[and] sovereignty, in the face of any circumstances that could arise with this imperialist aggression.
Dear The Saker,
Have a good trip.
Looks like the US stooge EU Govt. wants tomahawk missiles:
Will the same country start WW3? History repeating itself?
Veritas, thanks for the link about Poland’s weapons purchases:
“After the beginning of bloody conflict in Ukraine in spring of 2014, Poland adopted an unprecedented 10-year spending program worth some €33.6 billion to modernize its armed forces. The list of military purchase includes air defense systems, 70 multi-role helicopters worth €2.5 billion, APCs, combat drones and three submarines, AFP reported.
In September 2014, the US State Department gave the green light to a $500 million arms deal with Poland, including the sale of 40 advanced JASSM (Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missiles) cruise missiles and upgrades to their F-16 fighter jets to these missiles.
JASSMs are composite-body semi-stealth long-range cruise missiles, ideal to inflict a preemptive strike. The submarine-launched Tomahawk missiles Warsaw wants are also a definitely first strike weapon.”
To spend so much money to make oneself a target! If there is no war it will have been a waste of money. But if there is one it guarantees Poland’ll be a target.
Vietnam was one of the $1B/yr club of customers for russian defense exports on that list a few days ago.
along with the venezuelans.
Vietnam has been allowing Russia to use a former US military base to refuel nuclear-capable bombers as it rattles its sabre over the Asia-Pac region.. and America would like that to stop: “we have urged Vietnamese officials to ensure that Russia is not able to use its access to Cam Ranh Bay to conduct activities that could raise tensions in the region.” All that was missing was the “or else.”
How long was it ago, that US ambassador in Vietnam complained that US policy priority in Vietnam had switched from political prisoners to LGBT-laws implementation?
Fox News military analyst, retired US general Robert Scales, proposed to “start killing Russians” in Ukraine.
His remarks was also broadcasted on Russian TV. Russia’s Investigative Committee has launched a criminal case against this bloodthirsty bastard:
I know that US won’t extradite this bloodthirsty bastard to Russia. However, since Americans constantly kidnap Russians in other countries and then bring them to US to try and imprison them on fabricated cases like they did with Viktor Bout kidnapped by Americans in Thailand or pilot Konstantin Yaroshenko kidnapped by Americans in Liberia, I see no reason why Russians could not kidnap this bloodthirsty bastard from some other country and then try him in Russia.
i had no idea this was going on in poland.
note date & incidents–this is not that planeload of high up poles who all packed themselves onto 1 a/c, which crashed in fog. that was april 10/2010.
this is others later.
General Slawomir Petelicki, the founder of Poland’s renowned special forces unit GROM, is unfortunately also on the list of potentially controversial suicides. Petelicki died in June 2012 in the underground garage of his apartment building in Warsaw. According to the official version of events, he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Hmmm,there seems to be a similar problem in Ukraine lately.Five opposition politicians and ex-government officials committed “suicide” lately.One of the most important ones shooting himself with a hunting rifle.Now I figure that could be done.But it seems to me,if you were going to shoot yourself a pistol would be a far easier way to do it.With a rifle,you’d need to position your arms difficulty to get the results wanted.And any slight wrong movement would affect the shot.The implications seem to be that many people think these are murders staged as suicides by groups like the RS.
Uncle Bob, somebody theorized that those suicided might be potential leaders in a new govt or in revolution. I think two were from All-Regions Party (Yanukovich’s old party). Another had been entirely outspoken against the Nazi movement.
I really like this painting of …..are they eagles?. Name of artist?…Did you get a chance to click on the LiveCam monitoring in Pennsylvania a pair of eagles nesting? The male goes hunting for food while the female sits on 2 eggs. He covers for her by sitting on eggs while she eats….so beautiful. Eaglets should hatch around March 21,,,,9 more days ….they are fragile so they won’t fledge until June or July and even then the parents will remain to watch over them and teach them how to hunt etc…

I encourage everyone to go have a look.
Enjoy Friday 13….I usually hide on that day
The picture is a blackboard drawing for young children from a Waldorf school, and will have been erased and replaced by many others in the meantime – There are Waldorf schools in Ukraine as well, and hopefully all children will grow up with a natural sense of reverence and respect for our beautiful planet.
Q: Enjoy Friday 13….I usually hide on that day.

MSM finally exposes Iraq’s Tonton Macoute
I’ve been writing about the Iraqi death-squads we’ve been supporting for quite a while now with little to no coverage from the MSM to back-up my claims.
That changed today.
ABC News is having to cover the U.S. trained and supported “Dirty Brigades” in Iraq due to the fact that members of the death-squads have been posting Instagram pics of them torturing and killing Iraqis who don’t go along with the program. Of course, they call them “ISIS” but it’s still the same thing.
@Martin. It will be interesting to find out exactly what “contracts” Sweden has in mind….Sweden has cancelled an arms agreement with Saudi Arabia? [not sure]
Martin meant many millions of Swedish krona (crowns), not billions and not in dollars. The financial aid comes with many demands. An end to corruption is specifically mentioned. The Saudi deal was cancelled because one of the ruling parties, the Greens, objected to it.
Willy Lomann is a disinfo a**hole, please stop advertizing that crap.
He is still whining about the loss of Moslem Brotherhood in Egypt, calling them a “genuine people’s revolution”.
He banned me from his page for correcting some of his lies, by the way. That’s your “freedom fighter/truther” right there. Most certainly a planted intelligence puppet.

The Kremlin reports Putin in good health
DEBKAfile March 12, 2015, 4:11 PM (IDT)
The Kremlin Thursday dismissed rumors that President Vladimir Putin was ill after he canceled a trip to Kazakhstan. The rumors flying through the Russian Internet claimed in fact that the 62-year old Russian leader had suddenly died. Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, asked by Reuters if the president, who had not been seen on live TV since March 5, was in good health, replied “yes”. “He has meetings all the time,” he said by telephone. “He has meetings today, tomorrow. I don’t know which ones we will make public.” A Kemlin website photo of a Putin meeting on March 10 with a provincial government proved to be an old picture. Still, Russian financial markets were stable and the ruble improved in value.
Debka is an Israeli dis-information site probably populated by ISIS (Mossad) agents.
Interesting.When Putin is shown on TV regularly “he is a dictator,dominating the TV screens”.Then when he isn’t on TV its “where is he,he’s not on TV”.Damned if you do,damned if you don’t ,with the MSM.
damage control, damage control
@ Uncle Bob,
Q: Damned if you do,damned if you don’t ,with the MSM.
R: As I wrote a couple of days back, I’m glad I’m not in Mr. Putin’s shoes, because the strain on him must be enormous. Whatever happened or is going on, we need the man too much to give up anything [hope, etc.].
Personally I think he needs a few days to regain strength again and recompose himself to be able to fight another day. Obviously, fighting 6 dimensional chess comes with a hefty price tag.
If I were in Putins shoes, I wouldn’t last a week. He is doing the impossible. When he retires, I hope to meet him in Krim, if only for a couple of hours. Impossible you say, but the impossible has already happened in my life. Never say never. “Everything that is impossible is not French”, as the proverb says. I see us having a long talk in simple English, German and the little Russian I know. I look forward to it. Though I am nobody, I have had this vision for some time. I can even see him grow a beard – and take a look at mine, while he, being polite, says nothing about my tobacco pipe.

Dog, DEBKAfile tells even the most blatant files. Frequently they will quote Kerry or a US general with a totally made-up quote, which they then have to deny. Their stories seem always to be what Israel WISHES were true.
Personality of DEBKAfile is just like Netanyahu”s.
I notice Bzrezinski has offered up the Empire’s response for ending the Ukraine crisis. It basically puts forth the proposition that Ukraine should join Europe in some form of membership with assurances to Russia that Ukraine would never join NATO……that is until the Empire wants to break it’s word as it always inevitably does on the pretext that Russia has done this over here so the Empire’s response is to include Ukraine in NATO. The Empire always lies and the Empire always goes back on it’s word. The above deal would also deter freedom of actions in Russian foreign policy making knowing the Empire would use Ukraine NATO membership as a leverage point. Problem is the Euro vassals will like this one.
Not sure how it translates in polish for Bignews, but they know damn well all these years that “putin’s a pushover”!
which is why the offer now.
how else to explain 15 years of doing nothing while they’ve surrounded russia on 3 sides with bases?
and if he doesn’t watch out, they’ll change that one day to “putin’s a putschover”, putsched right out the (kremlin) door.
ok so I see that this is a depiction of a pair of Sakers. Nice
They seem to be very similar to Eagles….:)
Straight from the blood sucker’s foaming mouth (note the foam in the corners of the repulsive ghoul’s mouth in the photo):
Geopolitical Situation Most Dangerous Since WWII – Rothschild
“We are confronted by a geopolitical situation perhaps as dangerous as any we have faced since World War II: chaos and extremism in the Middle East, Russian aggression and expansion, and a weakened Europe threatened by horrendous unemployment, in no small measure caused by a failure to tackle structural reforms in many of the countries which form part of the European Union,” wrote Jacob Rothschild, a British investment banker and a member of the prominent Rothschild family, in an annual Strategic Report of RIT Capital Partners plc (RIT).
The war on Russia is being pursued by the Rothschilds, Jacob Rothschild has now confirmed this. The Rothschild family and Israel are one and the same. The Rothschild family created Israel. It’s their baby.
The Rothschild family, Banderastan and Porkshank, what are friends for?
When Will Poroshenko Sell His Chocolate Business?
Short of selling off one’s business there are, of course, ways of distancing oneself from it by transferring the operational management into a trust.
And that’s what Mr. Poroshenko has done — he transferred the management of his business assets to an equity fund “Prime Assets Capital”, and appointed as its head … his father Oleksiy.
The fund has recently announced that it had chosen Rothschild and Company to advise them on the sale of President Poroshenko’s businesses. The world famous asset management experts are pairing up with a Ukrainian property fund Investment Capital Ukraine, ICU to complete the necessary legal procedures in Ukraine. The company, one of the biggest and more successful asset managers in the country has a history of representing business interests of Mr. Poroshenko. One of its founders and key shareholders, Valeriya Gontareva is now Head of Ukraine’s Central Bank (NBU). She was recommended to this post in June this year by …President Poroshenko. Upon her appointment to the NBU she swiftly sold her stake in ICU and resigned from its Board. President Poroshenko is yet to follow her example in resolving his own conflict of interest.
This is how zionazis do business and protect/extend their interests. The ZPC half of the ZPC/NWO don’t show their hands as readily as the other half does, they traditionally prefer the back rooms instead of the front page.
The British Empire created Israel and still runs it even today.
Rothschild family was just an accountant for the empire. And used to bamboozle the gullible like you into the “jewish conspiracy” nonsense.
wow, an apologist…
The Hapsburgs kicked them out of the Austrian- Hungarian Empire for their cunning and dishonesty – and they were hardly angels themselves.
Though the Rothschilds own 80% of Israeli-held land in Palestine, it’s obviously not enough: the Klan are after control over the Pars gas field.
Bibi is to add Syria to the present holdings, and then it’s onto Iran.
Trouble is, Iran isn’t so keen..or Russia.
Q: The British Empire created Israel…
R: British Mandate of Palestine.
The UK was a tool, not a creator. It facilitated the dream of Eretz Israel come true, by turning the lives of Palestinians into a living nightmare.
Sorry to tell you but you have been thoroughly misinformed about the history of Israel. That land was actually belonging to Syria. The arabs there that you refer to are from Egypt, Syria etc. and mostly recently imported, both under the british and under german rule. Arafat himself was an Egyptian and he was a young fighter in the nazi troops of Mufti of Jerusalem.
None of those aryan-looking white, blonde european stooges is a Jew. Rothschilds are german impostors and Vatican’s knights of malta, you can see them wearing the maltese cross on many pictures. Also knights of the british empire. All of them are satanist freemasons.
And sorry but if you think that the bloodiest european empires that killed millions would just let a handful of “Jews” take over their empires, then you need some serious help regarding your sense of reality.
The whole “jewish conspiracy” smokescreen for the british empire was invented by Oliver Cromwell. You can find it online easily.
As for the rest, here’s some stuff to get you started:
Sincere recommendation, stop reading emotional storires without real contents and try digging in real historical archives, documents, books, etc. Internet blogs without real sources are mostly disinfo.
I think you need to work a little more on this theory to make it fly…
Q: stop reading emotional storires without real contents
R: I’ll tell Abe to hunt down the satanic, free mason Templar dudes then…
None of the Europeans ate aryans so do not talk of “aryan looking “like someone from England of 1920s who first spread this false idea of European or white being aryans. Only iranians and north Indians are aryans.and always have been for lat 4000 years.
Ok, let me reiterate this:
The mightiest, greatest, most bloodthirsty empire in all of history was a tool of some handful of Jews? And the mightiest church in the world, that did even more crimes than the british just so decided to disapper from the scene and only do charity work behind the walls of Vatican?
And then we all wake up…
Really, are you even trying to be serious here? Any sense of reality left at all, or are you just dumbly repeating memorized stuff from the usual blogs/outlets?
Here’s some more serious info on the british mandate: http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/History/mandatetoc.html
About empire take-overs
Book by William Thomas Walsh published in 1931
The English parasites need to be sorted out and eliminated for sake of world peace. Main enemy of Russia is England which must be destroyed by Rusdia and by Germany to have any peace in the world.
Saker, in your honor let’s all have a happy Friday the 13th, which is actually a lucky moon and womam number, contrary to the false propaganda of patriarchy; and which coincides nicely with spending time with one’s lover, in this case your wife.
Thanks also to Christine’s noticing as I did, the new photo of birds (eagles ? nesting) and the lovely link to the Pennsylvania nesting eagles. When I was living on a Wisconsin cranberry marsh, I saw nesting eagles like that. Oh, that the American Eagle mascot would learn from the Saker Falcon vineyarder!
What are you talking about, pray tell? Ever saw a history book in your life?
That was allegedly the day of execution of the Templar knights founder Jacques DeMolay. Thus chosen as an “unlucky” day by his followers and their other pagan fellows.
Jaques de Molay was not the founder of the Templars, he was their last grand master. The founder was Hugues de Payens.
Oh right, mixed that up a bit. Thanks for correcting.
Mystery spy busted recruiting girls for Israel-America’s ISIL terrorists:
Spy arrested in Turkey for helping 3 British schoolgirls join ISIS – Turkish foreign minister
A spy from an intelligence agency that is supporting the US-led coalition fighting Islamic State has been arrested in Turkey on suspicion of helping three British schoolgirls travel to Syria to join the jihadist group.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mehmet Cavusoglu did not disclose the nationality of the intelligence agent, but said he was not from the US or an EU country, or a citizen of the nation he is working for.
Shamima Begum, Amira Abase, both 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16, are believed to be in Islamic State-controlled territory after disappearing from the UK last month.
Speaking on Turkish television, Cavusoglu said: “We have learnt that the British girls were helped by an intelligence officer from a coalition member country.”
The agent who assisted the girls has been detained, he added.
Cavusoglu told channel A Haber TV that the spy was working for a country that is part of the US-led coalition against Islamic State.
Any care to guess the spy’s nationality and the intelligence service the spy worked for?
I plan to spend a day deep in the Florida wilderness alone with my wife
Out in the wild among the “lions and tigers and bears” on Friday The 13th? You have more guts than I have. ;D
I have seen much bigger gators than this one :-)
but yes, they do travel on foot very long distances over land. Once, in the Tiger Bay State Forest I saw a mother-gator with her kids in a small pond in the middle of the forest. The nearest lake was several miles away. Once I even photographed a gator in a forest (a rather rate sight). They are amazing animals, beautiful and very majestic in their own way. It is like seeing a dinosaur. I love gators (and snakes too!). I know, I am weird….
there’s a video of a woman and her kids that live with three aligators…they make good pets…very loving.
I’m not kidding
I’m not kidding here’s one https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=SdzGqXLBQw4
Florida is wild, but quite safe. Our alligators very rarely attack, and usually when they do there is a really major human mistake involve. Our bears (black) very rarely cause problems. Our panthers are very shy and hide from everybody. As for our snakes, the big ones (Eastern Diamonback) are very peaceful and our nasty ones (Pigmy rattlesnakes) are very small. We do have rather ill-tempered cottonmouths (water moccasins) near the water, but mostly they stay away. Still, and just in case, I carry a 9mm gun with me with some nasty +P FMJ-FN in the clip. You know what I fear most? The mosquitoes and the fire ants – now they are truly nasty :-)
The wildlife are never an issue. Vermin are. Humans are top of the food chain so it is that species to look out for.
Your blog is a threat.
Q; Your blog is a threat.
R: Given what has happened to this web site not hat long ago, there’s ample evidence that’s very true.
Gary Webb had this to say, “If we had met five years ago, you wouldn’t have found a more staunch defender of the newspaper industry than me … And then I wrote some stories that made me realize how sadly misplaced my bliss had been. The reason I’d enjoyed such smooth sailing for so long hadn’t been, as I’d assumed, because I was careful and diligent and good at my job … The truth was that, in all those years, I hadn’t written anything important enough to suppress …”
Gary committed suicide by shooting 2 bullets into his head…
A man has been arrested for allegedly helping three British schoolgirls cross into Syria, Turkey’s foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has said.
The man is said to work for the intelligence agency of a country which is part of the coalition against Islamic State (IS) militants.
It is believed Shamima Begum, Amira Abase, both 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16, left the UK last month to join IS.
It is not known what country the arrested man is from.
Ukr cannot get russia engines and spares for military vehicles, but supplies have stopped. However ukr complains cos no-one else will supply parts, spares, and will probably be virtually impossible to fit rows of rusting vehicles.details in article.
“ndeed, Ukraine does not manufacture engines suitable for AFVs. All storage facilities have been cleared out, all Russian sources of engines have been cut off. The only thing that’s left is buying imported engines (but there’s an informal embargo in place), or building own factory to manufacture licensed engines. But there aren’t all that many engine types suitable for AFVs. However, luckily many of them are also used in farm equipment. Incidentally, Ukrainian farm equipment manufacturers also have to buy engines “on the side.”
“Russian blogger Denis Mokrushin published a lengthy “diary”consisting of Facebook posts by a Ukrainian self-described “office plankton”, a Maidan supporter and participant who found himself sucked into the UAF as part of the infamous “4th wave of mobilization” in early 2015. The diary is interesting for a variety of reasons, including the description of the low quality of the 4th-wave mobilizees (“the bottom of society”), the “totally f***** supply system” of the UAF, the squalid living conditions, all-pervasive drunkenness at all levels of the Ukrainian military machine, not to mention the absurdity of what passes for military training these days. Though it is in Russian, the accompanying photographs tell the story pretty well on their own.
However, the most intriguing entry is the one dating from March 11, 2015 in which he writes that the “brigade commander” told them they’d be deploying to the Lugansk region to “carry out combat missions” around April 16th. ”
“Minister of the Economy Ayvaras Abromavichyus said in a report on the first 100 days of the new government’s work that his ministry is in the first stage of liquidation, and by the fall it will lose half of its staff.
He said that the ministry is undergoing restructurization. “Prime Minister Yatsenyuk and President Poroshenko told me that by the time my tenure as Minister expires, my ministry should no longer exist. We are moving in that direction.”
He added that “we are now at the first stage: I already signed all directives, and in a month and a half we’ll lose 30% of ministry’s staff, the next stage is another 20%, and by year’s end we’ll lose 50% of the staff.”
WikiLeaks published secret telegrams of U.S. Ambassador to Russia, John Beyrle. The American ambassador reported to Washington about his meeting with the Russian “dissidents”, about the requests from non-systemic opposition and that an emergency situation is required in order to “overthrow Putin” .
Throw them all out Mr Vladimir President?

(Reuters) – European leaders will ask their foreign policy chief next week to draw up a plan to counter Russian “disinformation campaigns” over the conflict in Ukraine, draft conclusions of an EU summit showed.
EU leaders, meeting on March 19-20, will give the High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini three months — until their next summit in June — to work out how to support media freedom and European values in Russia.

This one already has 2 baby eaglets…..fascinating
, March 11. /TASS/. Members of the European Parliament have put forward a proposal for an international forum in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk to discuss the future of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk republics in the wake of the Minsk peace deal agreed in Belarus last month.
The first meeting of the forum under the working title “Donbas: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” is expected to take place in Donetsk in May.The idea also received support from Latvian MEP Tatiana Zhdanyuk and Czech MEP Miloslav Ransdorf.
“We want to see how the provisions of the Minsk agreement are being implemented in terms of recognizing local authorities and establishing dialogue with them, as well as ensuring control of the border,” Jean-Luc Schaffhauser, a French member of the European Parliament and one of the initiators of the proposal, said on WednesdayAddressing the packed briefing in Strasbourg, the French politician also expressed confidence that last year’s overthrow of the Ukrainian government was organised by US intelligence agencies.
“Obviously, it is necessary to recall the events of February 2014. There was an electoral process of democratic renewal in the country. This process was stopped, and there was a coup,” Schaffhauser said, noting that the West was “trying to legitimise the coup”, but “this does not stop it from being a coup, which was prepared and conducted by representatives of the U.S. intelligence services.”
Time to “euromaidan” Iceland?
Iceland Drops Bid for EU Membership
A statement released by Foreign Minister Gunnar Bragi Sveinsson informed the European Union Commission of his country’s decision to annul their application.
“The EU and Iceland have discussed the country’s position on the status of its bid to join the European Union,” the statement reads. “The government does not intend to resume preparing for EU membership.”
“Participating in EU talks isn’t really valid anymore,” Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson said earlier this year, according to Reykjavik Grapevine magazine. “Both due to changes in the European Union and because it’s not in line with the policies of the ruling government to accept everything that the last government was willing to accept. Because of that, we’re back at square one.”
Cheers to the Icelandic government. When it comes to voting on EU membership, hopefully Icelanders will take into account this sort of ZPC/NWO fascism:
European Parliamentarians Prohibited to Reveal EU-US Trade Deal Content
Members of the European Parliament are prohibited to reveal the details of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), member of the European Parliament Marina Albiol told Sputnik Thursday.
“They have made me sign the confidentiality declaration which prohibits to reveal the content,” Albiol said.
The TTIP is a deal currently negotiated by the European Union and the United States, which aims at eliminating trade barriers in a number of economic sectors to facilitate trade between the two regions.
According to the Spanish media sources, only seven European parliamentarians had access to the document up to date, and could discuss it for up to two hours. During the document assessment, the lawmakers were not allowed to use any electronic devices, and were even urged to take off a watch.
“I could not even bring a pen,” Albiol told Sputnik.
Thousands of Europeans have signed petitions, urging to stop the negotiations on trade deal between Washington and Brussels. Many experts claim that the agreement would negatively impact the European Union’s economy.
According to the recent study conducted by the US Tufts University, the TTIP can lead to the European Union loosing as many as 600,000 workplaces. France is expected to suffer the most from the new agreement, with each French worker losing $5,800 of income annually.
The EU is the ZPC/NWO’s tool to gain total control of the people of Europe. If people continue to allow the EU free reign, Europe will end up being a few very exclusive communities for the parasite class and mostly ghettos for everybody else. Greece was apparently chosen to be the test vehicle for the Americanization of Europe.
‘ prohibited to reveal the details of the (TTIP)’
What was all this noise about ‘conspiracy theories’? This is another official, institutionalized, conspiracy — no theory needed.
This is a mistake made in many countries.There seems to be this mistaken belief that agreements made must be obeyed unquestionably by the peoples of those countries.I think they forget that is what revolutions are for.A “European Spring” in those countries cancel all agreements not agreed to by the populace.
The European Parliament requests an independent international investigation into the murder of Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov.
Pretty arrogant, eh? How about an independent inquiry into neo-fascist death squads, civilian deaths that contravene the Geneva Convention and the latest string of ‘suicides’ in Ukraine?

This related to the discussion I had in the recent Paul Craig Roberts link. We were discussing the buk theory where Kat Kan pointed to the following article
It has some pictures of a plume going straight up. I have prepared a simple Matlab code for such an event. I tried to find the article discussing these photos with exact map locations where it was photographer and where it was claimed to be fired. However, I could not. These numbers are left as parameters in the code. The code is self explanatory and is well commented. You will need Matlab to run it. It gives the results as a figure. One may vary the relevant parameters to match the reported setting.

% possible and get the upper and lower bounds.
% Assumption: Photographer, launch site, missile flight path all lie in on
% the same plane (might be good approximation to situations close to this)
% This assumption comes from the fact that in the photographs the missile

% events may be the start of the launch (event 1) and the final impact
% explosion (event 2). The time difference between the arrival of the
% sounds from these two events are calculated using a simple geometric

Hi… from moderator … can you help us out with what app needs to be downloaded to run this script. I understand ‘matlab’ which package for debian, ubuntu , winX etc. Anything to the help the tech user that needs a little guidance.
Matlab is a computing software. It is available for most operating systems. However, it is not a free software. Most universities have this for students free of cost, at least within the university. Most users usually have a cracked version for their ‘personal use and non-commercial’ use. The package could be found from the internet.
One comment if anyone is running the code. There is some issue with the format in the comment section. In Matlab, any statemen following ‘%’ is treated as a comment and ignored.
When I copied it here, some things in one line has wraped to the second line. This should be corrected as follows to avoid run-time error in matlab.
x3 = sqrt(h^2 + b^2); % straight line distance between impact point (in the air) to the launch
In the above line, before running in matlab, the last word ‘point’ came to second line due to a wrap around. This should be adjusted before running in matlab by backspacing to bring the ‘point’ to the line above where it was intended to be.
Therefore, if it gives an error in certain line, use backspace to bring that line or the line after to the above line. Hopefully, without much difficulty it should be ok.
Thank you for your informative response. I’ll give it a try myself.
why use matlab then? Would Python not be adequate? And Python is pretty much everywhere…
Yes. That should be adequate for this task. I used matlab, because this is what I have been using for a long time. If you see the lines of the code, it is quite understandable. The math is basic pythagors theorem and just use of time = distance/speed. Final few lines are for plotting, which is quite easy with matlab. May be it is also easy with phython. If you want to run in matlab, I suggest to use help of some one familiar with it.
I describe the procedure used below so that one may use what software he/she wants.
The idea is as follows. Assume all lie on a single plane (reasons discussed in my first comment).
h = height of impact explosion and
b = ground distance of impact from launch site (I assume this value, one should sweep over possible values or use the value if this is known)
Let x3 be the straight line distance
1) x3 = squareroot(h^2 + b^2) ,
missile travel distance will be a bit more than x3 due to curvature, this excess from straight line be ‘p’ percent. This adjustable for any required trajectory.
2) excess = x3 *p/100
3) let x1 be the distance between the launch site and the photographer and x2 the distance from impact point to the photographer. Since x1 is not known, let us sweep it from 10m to say 30000m
If missile is traveling towards the photographer,
3a) x2 = squareroot( (x1-b)^2 + h^2 )
If missile is flyin away from photographer,
3b) x2 = squareroot( (x1+b)^2 + h^2 )
now, let the launch be at time t = 0 sec .
t1 = time of arrival of launch sound
t1 = x1/c , where c = speed of sound (340m/sec)
t2 = time of arrival of impact sound
= time to impact + propagation delay of sound to photographer
= missile travel distance / missile avg speed + x2 / c
= (x3+excess)/(nC) + x2/c , where n is the mach number
t2 – t1 = delay between sound of launch and impact at photographer
delT = t2 -t1 = (x3+excess)/(nC) + x2/c – x1/c
(delT could be negative due to Mach n>1)
Now, plot delT vs x1 and see where it comes close to 15 sec. 15 sec is what is quoted in the news papers.
I believe with the BUK missile there is a blast at launch, also a sonic boom (which I would guess would rattle some windows), then the target blast.
The “witness” if the story is correct spoke of a noise or explosion unlike any other. Sonic boom?

Hypothesis like this probably will not work.
Ground distance from photographer in Torez to impact somewhere near Rozyspnye is about 15 km. (Pls tell if you have a better estimate)
Sound travelling hypotenuse of 15 km horizontally, 10 km vertically will take 53 seconds.
Missile travelling just the vertical 10 km is takes at least 11 s ( vertical launch; or more than that otherwise)
So t2 is 64 seconds (or more) . That needs t1 = 49 seconds (or more). Making ground distance from launch to camera in excess of 16 km. –That is not realistic.
Why is the number coming from the above method not realistic. One key assumption is all points of interest to us lie on a plane. For this, do can you point out if there is a mistake in the equations I provided? The reasoning for each step was mentioned. If anything wrong, please point out.
Why the value you got is not reasonable?
The result values would depend on the parameters we choose. It also depend on the trajectory excess we choose (I do not have an idea what would be an appropriate number), speed of missile etc. Some parameters will not influence that much, ie change in parameter to change in result is small.
(By ground distance, b, I mean the the distance from the point on the ground vertically below to the point in space where impact took place. )
I do not have a value for b. We have to choose it based on existing claims from media or so. If the location you mentioned (Rozyspnye) is assumed to be “b”. The from google maps, the distance to torez is around 11-12km (photographer was somewhere there as per claims). Let us say b=11.5km. In this case the missile flew over torez to that place.
For Mach n = 2.5, (we need an expert to tell what is reasonable. one may try a range of values and see what results we get). With these parameters, my model gives, the following result by varying x1.
excess = 10%
x1=10km, delay = 19.8 s
x1 = 10.99km, delay = 16.86 s
x1 = 11.62km, delay = 15 s (this what x1 should be to get 15s with these paramters)
x1 = 13.36, delay = 10.35 s
excess = 30%
x1 = 11km, delay = 20.3 s
x1 = 11.98km, delay = 17.53s
x1 = 12.88km, delay = 15s (this what x1 should be to get 15s with these paramters)
x1 = 14.35km, delay = 11.7 s
so and so
The photographer location in the map is more or less clear based on the claims. If some can give an exact loaction on map for point “b” (the place about missile is claimed to have it), then we can calculate how far x1 should be. To set right numbers for excess value, mach speed etc we need some one with expertise.
My idea is to point out to those experts, who know the claimed geometry of the incident to use the given methodology to calculate the delay for the photographer. Based on this one may be able to disprove the story. If we get numbers that support the claim, then we are back to square one. This is an alternate method to indirectly verify the claim. I hope, those people give a try. Or if anyone has information on the claimed locations of events, please post it.
In my earlier comment, I said we can use this method to indirectly verify the claim. Since we are investigating why not try this angle as well.
To be more precise, we can only disprove the claim.
If the numbers happen to fit the delay in the story for a claimed geometry, then there are several possibilies
1) A happy coincidence
2) The story is fake and the faked guys chose the numbers well
4) Sounds from something else
3) Story is true. However, this method cannot be used to prove it.
I am NOT using assumption that the launcher, camera, and impact are on the the same line. I am not using matlab.
Still the simple estimate I gave applies, and using matab or not is not going to change it.
* Assumption made is (1) two sounds observed by cameraman are launch and impact sounds and (2) they arrive 15 seconds apart.
** In any case the input needed is the distance between the camera (in Torez) and the impact (which was taken as Rozypnoe 15 km away). This distance is something we know (or should know).
What follows from the estimate is that launch must be too far from the camera (the photo shows several kilometers distance, but not over 10 km distance)
Conclusion is that for any launch point satisfying the time delay condition, the distance between camera and the launcher must be over 16 km, and so assumptions made (*) are not working.
Your argument sounds correct. > 16km hold if the distance to photographer is 15km.
I will recheck mine to see if there is any issue. One thing is that I do not use the ground distance to the photograher as a parameter. In my case, “b” is the ground distance to the impact point from the launch point. So, if I put b=15km, it gives a smaller distance for the distance to the photographer.
May be if I plot the delay vs the ground distance of impact to the photographer our results would agree. I will update in the next couple of hours.
Your argument is sufficient to eliminate a delay of 15 sec occurring at a distance less than 16km if the distance from photographer to impact is 15km. I checked the distance from Rozyspnye to the exact location of the photographer mentioned in the link.
(the 12th, 13th and 14th figures)
Using the google map distance measurement, the distance to Rozyspnye from the photographer is 11km not 15km. So your argument would mean that distance between photographer and launch should be atleast 13.5 km to get a 15 sec delay.
Now coming back to my analysis. It is correct. My calculations fix the distance of impact from the launch site. This is ‘b’. The ground distance from photographer to impact point is given by
(x1_all – b).
The corresponding plotting code need to modified to plot((x1_all-b) …
Now, I will try to use the distances from google maps for the locations indicated in the above link and calculate what would have been the delay at the photographers location. (By the way, path from launch to impact is almost a straight line.) For this case,
b = 22.5 km, x1 = 11.1km, x1-b = 11.4km, h = 10300m
Choosing mach 2.7 speed, sound speed 340m/s
For excess =0%, delay should be 39.4sec
For excess = 30%, delay should be 47 sec
For excess=50%, delay should be 52 sec
Excess path is only going to increase the delay. So this cannot be blamed.
Since these delays is way off from the 15 sec told in the interview of the photographer (see link http://ukraineatwar.blogspot.com.au/2014/12/interview-with-eyewitness-who-made.html ), we can conclude that it is impossible for this guy to take photo from this location and hear a delay of 15 sec.
While I commend the academic analysis here, two factors make the BUK unlikely:
1) The smoke trail from the solid rocket fuel of this huge 16′ long missile can be seen from a great distance. Theoretically, over 100 miles at 32,000′. Obviously atmospherics reduce this but if you watch Youtube videos of real BUK launches you will get some idea of the trail -and that it can stay around for a long time, even up to 20 minutes. It is not a contrail from a jet engine, these are smoke particles. In a populated area, nobody saw such a trail.
2) The BUK shrapnel is large and shaped a bit like an ‘H’. None of the MH17 holes show the diamond shape elongated tears that this would make. The ’30mm cannon shell’ like cockpit holes are way too small and round. A BUK does not cause round holes. Other ground-to-air missiles so far, e.g. SA6, suggested by obfuscating ‘experts’ can’t reach anywhere close to 32,000′.
If an air-to-air missile was used then it could not be from the ‘separatists’, since they had no aircraft, and it is unlikely that these small IR engine-seeking warheads would alone cause the cockpit damage seen.
Although the pic cannot be ruled out there are too many unknowns in the report to run a program on. Should be three blasts when the sonic boom is included.
This would also fit many accounts of two explosions. The sonic boom and the actual explosion at target.
Going by the accounts of two explosions, this would indicate nobody heard the blast at take off (if BUK missile was used).
Analysis of projectiles is required.
How about a program that will determine the authenticity of an article.
I see a number of holes on the article that this program is based on.
A program that gives a report on various articles based on – 1. is there a reporters name. 2. is there a witness name. 3. how does this fit in with known facts. (At the moment pictures are known facts, also eye witness at the time must be considered) Witness statements at the time, on video must be considered.
This witness’s pics were posted to facebook by the SBU? within a few hours of the shootdown. How did the reporter find this person? Ukraine SBU?
The headaches of information warfare?
Yes that is a possibility. I have tried to see to use the information of what was available.
A sonic boom is quite possible. How strong this would be compared to the lift off sound I am not sure. I was hoping that someone will suggest more information about missile characteristic here.
For example, on trajectory, impact point, how strong is sonic boom, how long into the flight would the sonic boom happen etc, possibly some numbers on the loudness of each would be also good.
Please see my initial results here – Just search for the one ‘Gabriel on March 13, 2015 · at 1:48 am UTC’ )
Let me know what results you get from this.
That “plume” has long been relied on as evidence of the BUK. In fact there is not even evidence that it was taken that day, only the word of the supposed photographer (anonymous).
In fact the plume image shows a clear sky, whereas the crash smoke photo from the same source, and all other crash photos from the day, shows substantial cloud cover, so the plume image may not even be from that day.
All about the BUK fully analysed in painful detail includes the “plume” photos and the BUK-driving-around videos.
with every known theory included. Scroll down to the pictures you are interested in. It’s in a Wikipedia like format, as discussion between us who were working on it. There’s much too much to repeat it all here.
KatKan: Thanks for the link. I will see if I can be made of.
Peter: Yes, the there are a lot of variables. This method is based on certain assumptions. When I saw a number for the delay was specified in the report, I thought this is something testable. A vertical plume (and the corresponding angle of view) made some simplifications possible.
One may refine the idea to include a sonic boom. Here one would have to test a range of values by taking into account launch profile (acceleration etc)of a buk. For example, consider a minimum and maximum flying time for a buk to produce the sonic boom.
One thing the program has shown is that, it is almost impossible to get a 15 sec delay between launch and hit if it was fired away from the photographer. When fired towards, it is a bit tricky. One way is the consider the minimum and maximum values of certain parameters. This would locate at which location the 15 sec delay correspond to. If the predicted location is way off from the reported one, then it gives us confidence to reject the claim the report. However, if we cannot do that, then we are back to the old situation.
This method is based on a physical model. The idea is powerful and simple. It is possible to model more effects, for example, curvature of earth, deviation of path from the plane etc. Closed-form expressions may be difficult. But a technical person could do this.
My intention was to share my idea about this so called eye witness report. May be someone could refine it.
Please see the results in my comment to ABC above. I will tell what I did here briefly.
Now, I will try to use the distances from google maps for the locations indicated in the above link and calculated what would have been the delay at the photographers location. (By the way, path from launch to impact is almost a straight line.)
I took the assumed launch point as what was claimed by the photographs. Put the photographer in the shown location in Torez and the hit point as above Rozyspnye (suggested by ABC).
For this case,
Distance from launch point to Rozyspnye , b = 22.5 km ,
Distance from photographer in Torez to launch point, x1 = 11.1km,
Distance between Rozyspnye and photograpger, appox. x1-b = 11.4km, h = 10300m
Choosing mach 2.7 speed, sound speed 340m/s
For excess =0%, delay should be 39.4sec
For excess = 30%, delay should be 47 sec
For excess=50%, delay should be 52 sec
Excess path is only going to increase the delay. So this cannot be blamed. What this shows is that the photographer could not have heard the sound of launch at hit with a delay of 15 sec as was told in his interview. This is my conclusion.
I would be happy to have your thoughts on this analysis. Do you or anyone else agree or disagree with my method? and why? (My method is described in my comment here. Just search for the one ‘Gabriel on March 13, 2015 · at 1:48 am UTC’ )
I don’t think the EU needs Matlab to concoct lies and obfuscate the truth. The fact that we haven’t learned/heard anything from/about audio or recorded information about flight and other data [as both ‘black ‘ boxes have been recovered] of MH17 is fully self-explanatory. Compare this to the <a href="http://www.bustle.com/articles/59922-why-did-airasia-flight-qz8501-crash-recovered-audio-recordings-provide-new-insight".AirAsia crash investigation.
Silence may be golden, but in this case, it’s deadly.
What do you mean ? Obfuscate the truth?? What has the EU got to do with it? Are you the EU? How can analyzing an event scientifically wrong.
What I did has been clearly stated. All simplifying assumptions, reasons etc. If there is anything wrong in the analysis, you or anybody else is welcome to point out. But do it with proper reasoning. I am not interested in anything else. This is how science is done.
If the locations where sounds are produced are known it is possible to calculate the delay at a particular location.
In fact, according the results, it turns out that the photographer could not heard a delay of 15 sec (between launch sound and hit sound), as was told in his interview, at his location for the given location of launch and hit. This in fact is to the disadvantage to the claims of the photographer.
If we have sufficient data to refute a theory scientifically, that is the best way to do it. I saw a possibility, I tried it and shared it with the community. I do not expect everyone to understand it or appreciate it. It may turn out that, this analysis is too simplistic. However, for now, I have nothing to think otherwise. In fact, any scientific questioning is highly welcomed.

Greetings to all. We would like to take this open thread opportunity to share something from Canuckistan for everyone’s consideration about the Harper Regimes version of the ATO. This latest attempt at circumventing our Constitution and shredding our Charter of Rights and Freedoms, oddly enough, targets pretty much everyone that is not a card carrying member of the Harper Party. for those that have limited knowledge of the situation here, the Harper Party has 30% or so public support on a “good” day for them.
Below is the introduction and as always, commentary, feedback and sharing are always encouraged welcome…
In our previous brief summary, The Rise of the #NeoBolsheviks aka #NeoCons, we touched upon the various similarities between the Harper Regime and the Bolsheviks counter-revolution that violently seized power in Russia in 1917. For this brief summary we will pose a few questions and issues that seem to be missing from the current discourse, dissemination, conversation, reporting and debate about Bill C-51.
When will the Opposition and those opposed to the Orwellian and dystopian Bill C-51 mobilize in mass protests and how long will they remain committed?
Before we delve into the content, or lack thereof, we feel it is necessary to question the “Bread and Circuses” methods that are being utilized to “frame and mandate” the debate via the MSM and social media. The easiest way to present this is by utilizing our own CBC News coverage. At a later date we hop to present a summary that compiles the result of our in-depth analysis into how the CBC News and especially CBC’s Power and Politics, and to a lesser degree the Exchange, are nothing more than well organized and scripted “Limited Hangouts” that are engaging in a full spectrum “Gaslighting” operation against the citizenry that is being guided directly via the PMO. Not only are the hosts actively engaged but the supporting staff and reporters, guests, panelists, lobbyists and free-lance journalists are as well. This does nothing but cast a broad cloud of suspicion and call into question their own ethics and legitimacy. This harms our economy, society, peace, safety and security more than anything and everything else combined.
The short and simple overview is that the primary mandate is one that completely reinforces the PMO scripts and message about the geo-political and economic environment with a shrewd blend of “Yellow Journalism” and a tightly “Controlled Opposition” counter narrative when necessary, if at all. To observe this one only needs to inspect the language that is crafted within their coverage and articles and how “Sockpuppets” and carefully placed commentary divert the comments sections and social media discussions.
For the above to be addressed, we propose a few remedies that may open the debate and conversion. In our opinion, the collective Opposition and concerned backbenchers must, on behalf of all Canadians, demand a formal, immediate, open and transparent inquiry into how the PMO is utilizing tax-payer resources to contaminate and gaslight discussion and comment threads.

adorable video about feeding the orphan bear cubs in Russia.
March 6th (day after last known Putin public meeting photo) was in the interval when the security services were most concentrating on the Nemtsov assassination.
I hope Putin is fine, but if he was killed around then, I’d suggest Nemtsov killing’s primary purpose was to distract the security services.
And that would fit with the Nemtsov killing being so threaded through with weird seemingly illogical and mysterious features. All the better to drive the security guys nuts, and make them take their eyes off other important things.
Man, I hope this is not true. If Putin died, and the causes were not totally natural, then we all know exactly who is responsible.
Oh, and another ‘just saying’ idea. Perhaps something turned up during the Nemtsov investigation is so worrying, that Putin is currently bunkered as a safety precaution?
Something like, oh, definite proof that the USA is able to mind-program any random persons in short time intervals, to do things like assassinations. Think about what nightmares that would give Putin’s security guys.
Another possible objective of Nemtsov’s murder could have been to send a message: “Look what we can do, using anyone you thought you could absolutely trust.”
Btw, did anyone grab a screenshot of the death notice that supposedly appeared briefly on Medvedev’s web site?
You might wanna calm down a little there bro. :-)

You couldn’t make it up: Lithuania drops CIA torture inquest
How much more a$$licking is even possible …
Starting from a few ‘advisers’ in Saigon the USA ends up bombing Vietnam for most of the ’60s napalm and agent orange across Indo China — human deformities and trauma alive to this day and little or no US ‘reparations’! And Henry Kissinger gets a ‘Peace Gong’!
So the Greeks are complaining about being ‘short-changed’ by the post-nazi German EU Super-economy — what about Indo-China?
So, now the ‘Nation of Aggression’ Extraordinaire complains because Vietnam lets Russian bombers refuel in an old American naval base. Perhaps it’s ‘refuel’ and offload some “Antey-2500” toys to help against foreign aggression etc? To balance the north, or to deter the west, … or both?
I am posting this suggestion for action in America. Feedback appreciated.
The Republic is Dead; Long Live the Republic!
The Democratic Republic of the United States was overthrown on November 22, 1963; on that day our last Constitutional President, John F. Kennedy, was murdered in Dallas, and nothing has been the same since.
Kennedy was the last Constitutional President of our last Constitutional Republic.
On that day in November, the Anglo/Zionist Military Financial Oligarchs occupied our country. On that day we ceased to be a free people and our nation lost its independence.
We need to regain our independence and our liberty. We must accomplish this through the political process of Restoring our Republic.
Begin to Restore the Republic by organizing Alternate Elections for 2016.
This free electoral process will elect Independent Representatives, who serve only the people.
We suggest a slate of Revolutionary leaders to head our New Republic. Feel free to nominate your own favorites. Edward Snowden, Joan Baez, Cindy McKinney, whomever.
President: Ron Paul
Vice President: Dennis Kucinich
Secretary of State: Ralph Nader
Coordinator of the Militia: Jesse Ventura
Our candidates will be faithful to the existing Constitution of the United States: until the Next Generation can set up Committees of Correspondence where they will decide to continue this one, or to write a new Constitution.
Rules of Political Conduct in a Democratic Republic
1. All candidates will have equal access to the media.
2. No money may be spent on election campaigns.
3. Candidates must be legal residents of ONLY this country.
4. They must register their candidacy, and present a small number of petitions.
5. All candidates may participate in public debates with the other aspirants.
6. The People’s elections will be held in locals controlled by We The People.
7. The voters will have to tell our election officials their name, which will be recorded.
8. Then they will cast a paper ballot.
The results will be announced, and the new people’s government will begin a political confrontation of Dual Power. At first, the people’s new Republican Government will be smaller and weaker than that of the Totalitarian Oligarchs. With time and struggle, the new government will increase in power. Our government will take increasing responsibility for the well-being of its citizens, until, it can replace the usurping government of the Oligarchs and completely restore our Republic and our Honor.
For the New Democratic Republic!
