World War III
- The US will exploit non-diplomatic options in the war with Russia
‘Russia will continue to send troops home [from Syria] in body bags’ – US State Dept
- Pentagon chief outlines preparations for nuclear war with Russia, by Bill Van Auken
The thrust of Carter’s speech was a defense of the Pentagon’s proposed $348 billion plan to rebuild Washington’s so-called nuclear triad of strategic bombers, missiles and submarines. Estimates are that over a 30-year period, this nuclear buildup will siphon fully $1 trillion out of the American economy.
- Washington has Just Declared War on Russia, by Martin Berger
One could hardly make a compelling argument how else one can explain the statement made by Spokesperson for the US State Department, Rear Admiral John F. Kirby, other than a direct declaration of war. The statement reads as follows:
The consequences are that the civil war will continue in Syria, that extremists and extremists groups will continue to exploit the vacuums that are there in Syria to expand their operations, which will include, no question, attacks against Russian interests, perhaps even Russian cities, and Russia will continue to send troops home in body bags, and they will continue to lose resources – even, perhaps, more aircraft…
To create preconditions for an open armed conflict with Russia, Washington has launched a massive propaganda campaign, aimed at discrediting Moscow at every juncture. It’s enough to remember the so-called “doping scandal” and the “revelations” that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko made about the alleged presence of more than 30,000 Russian soldiers and hundreds of tanks in eastern Ukraine. And no matter how ridiculous and unfounded such allegations may be, Washington would still repeat them, as if it had no means to track a couple hundreds tanks anywhere on the face of the Earth and then provide irrefutable evidence of it to the public. Moreover, we hear repeated accusations about Moscow’s alleged involvement in the downing of the Malaysian Boeing MH-17 over Donbass and many others. And the list goes on. Looking at all these steps, one can’t help but remember the genius of Nazi propaganda – Joseph Goebbels – who swayed public perception with the continuous repetition of transparent lies up to and including the day of the Nazi invasion of Russia.

How Putin exposed the West: Part 1 (IMF/World Bank)
At which point did Putin become the big, bad wolf? Was it Crimea, the alleged MH17 airliner disaster, or another fabricated story on behalf of Western mainstream media? I guess there was that one time when he told Mr. McCain where his place was at the Munich Security Conference (2007) – as well as repay all of Yeltsin’s IMF / World Bank loans much ahead of schedule, so that the international financial terrorists no longer had leverage over Russia.
How Putin exposed the West: Part 2 (Economic Hitmen)
If you haven’t read the book “Confessions of an Economic Hitman” by John Perkins – I encourage you to head on over to Amazon and buy it. In quite some detail, it describes the way US “economic hitmen” plunder the world, and financially enslave the developing world. It reads like a thriller except it is entirely real – not even Hollywood could come up with a ‘baddie’ more sinister. Unless you are an unempathetic sociopath, I can guarantee you will lose sleep after reading the book.
Putin, of course, showed such hitmen the door and immediately became ‘baddie’ #1. By extension of this logic, almost everything you read in Western mainstream media (part of the “cabal”) is a self-projection. They accuse Putin of everything they take part in and create themselves.
If I were in Mr Putin’s shoes I would have plonked an “anti missile defense system” along the US border with Canada. But alas, his diplomatic skills are a lot more intricate than my own. :o)
How Putin exposed the West: Part 3 (Georgian aggression)
“The West needs Russia more than Russia needs the West” – relocate while you still can! Just kidding, but take your country back from the international cabal of terrorists. And very importantly – do not give your vote to Hillary. That is all, hope you enjoyed the doco!
- Ukraine as the Border of NATO Expansion, by Jan Oberg
The bad Christians, the Orthodox, were the Serbs and Russians and Greeks – all should be antagonized and the good guys in Yugoslavia were those who had been on the fascist side in WWII – the leaderships in Croatia, Muslims in Bosnia and the Kosovo Albanians. The Serb minority that had lived 400 years as a minority in the Croatian republic were, in the common Western discourse, invaders masterminded by strongman Slobodan Milosevic – whom Clinton without hesitation called the new ’Hitler of Europe’.
It worth repeating the classical truth known by more careful and intellectual European politicians than those we have today: Whether you like it or not, Europe can only create security and peace together with Russia, not against it.
- Aleppo: How Americans are being lied to
Sep 29, 2016 EIR’s Jeff Steinberg sits down with Virginia State Senator Richard Black to discuss the reality on the ground in Aleppo, Syria vs. the lies permeating the Western press. Having recently returned from a tour of Syria, including a meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Black is committed to educating his fellow Americans about how U.S./UK strategy of regime change is destroying this once prosperous, non-belligerent and progressive country.
The Debate – US Nuke Policy
Sep 28, 2016
Nuke force changes are ‘bearing fruit’: that’s what U-S Defense Secretary Ash Carter said when visited a US nuclear weapons manufacturing site adding that Washington has no plans to pursue a no-first-use nuclear weapons policy. He had said earlier that the US army will invest, innovate, sustain to rebuild US’s capabilities. It appears that the US has changed course completely when I comes to nuclear weapons: why the change in stance is the subject of this edition of the debate.
Orthodox shun Pope Francis’ Mass in Georgia, few Catholics turn out, by Reuters
Georgia is overwhelmingly Orthodox Christian and less than 1 percent of the population is Catholic.
Pope Francis on Saturday said Mass for unusually small crowd of just a few thousand Catholics in Georgia, a celebration that was further dampened when a delegation from the Orthodox Church stayed away.
Still, organisers were hoping for a much bigger turnout than the some 3,000 people who came to the Mass at a stadium in the capital that has a capacity of 25,000.
It was one of the smallest crowds ever seen at an outdoor papal Mass on Francis’ 16 foreign trips so far.
In another setback, a delegation representing the Patriarch of the Georgian Orthodox Church, Ilia II, that the Vatican had expected to come to the worship service, did not show up.
Two days before the pope arrived, Ilia issued a statement saying Orthodox could not attend Catholic Masses because of doctrinal differences dating back to the 1054 schism that divided Christianity into eastern and western branches.
The Georgian Orthodox Church is one of the more conservative in the Orthodox world.
Some of members have followed the pope since he arrived on Friday to protest against the visit.
A small group held up signs outside the stadium reading: “Vatican is a spiritual aggressor” and “Pope, arch-heretic, you are not welcome in Orthodox Georgia.”
Francis leaves on Sunday for overwhelmingly Muslim Azerbaijan
Iran vs. Britain: A History of Distrust
Sep 26, 2016 It would be something of an understatement to say that Iranian people have regarded Britain with a healthy dose of suspicion and anger. Throughout its history, Iran was never a colony of Britain or, indeed, a colony of anyone. Yet it has suffered much self-interested interference by Britain. Now six decades after MI6 engineered a coup against Iran’s democratically elected prime minister to safeguard the UK’s oil interests in Iran, the relations between the two countries is still fraught with mistrust. This anger surfaced on 29th November 2011, when a crowd of Iranian protesters attacked the British embassy in Tehran. While this event received widespread media coverage and led to condemnations from many Iranian officials, it is important to discuss what has actually lead to this level of anger amongst Iranians towards Britain. This documentary will look at the many historical involvements of Britain in Iran and her current anti-Iran policies, which have drawn a negative image of Britain in the minds of Iranians and may well be the roots of the deep distrust of Iranians towards Britain.
INDIA and Pakistan
Villagers residing in about 10Km from International Border with Pakistan have been asked to vacate ASAP.
All schools within 10 km of India-Pak border to be closed till further orders. — Terrorists from Jaish-e-Mohammed (responsible for the Uri attack), Laskhar-e-Toiba (responsible for the 2008 Mumbai terror strikes) and the Hizb-ul-Mujahideen were killed, numbering between 35 and 40. Nine Pakistan Army men killed.
The Indian Army Videographed the whole surgical strike
It’s High time that GoI (Government of India) should have done something about this nuisance from across the border..now our Govt Should recalibrate its policy towards US and Russia. Russia has a tremendous expertise in hunting down and nipping in the bud the terrorism problem. and GoI should come to its senses who our true friends are. US would never ever leave its dual stance on India Pak while Russia always had supported India. Here is a very good piece today in a newspaper . It’s about 130 years old newspaper .. The Hindu ..
Bhadrakumar reaffirms the dualistic behaviour of US perfectly
The meeting of the United States-Pakistan Defence Consultative Group, which was held in Rawalpindi on September 21, carries profound symbolism. Although the attack on the Indian army camp at Uri, which India insists was Pakistan-sponsored, took place only on September 18, and ignoring the Indian elite’s hysterical threat of ‘jaw for tooth’ et al, Washington nonetheless decided to go ahead with the meeting.
So much for the India-US “defining partnership ”! So much for Pentagon chief Ashton Carter being a ‘Friend of India’! So much for the US-India logistics agreement, too!

Thank you for your time,
Follow Scott on twitter for more updates
At which point did Putin become the big, bad wolf? Was it Crimea, the alleged MH17 airliner disaster, or another fabricated story on behalf of Western mainstream media?
It happened a couple of months before Crimea when Edward Snowden landed in Moscow. The US never admited what a blow it was.
The US couldn’t say how much they lost and Russia wouldn’t say how much they got.
Interesting question. This seems to have been a situation that has developed over time. Once it became clear that Putin would pursue polices to promote an independent Russia he became suspect. This began much earlier than Snowdon. One important event was Putin’s battle with the oligarchs. See this from the Economist 2003.
If the question is when did the Washington go cuckoo about Putin I believe the answer is when Snowden arrived. The US was concerned, and still are, that Snowden and Moscow were a done deal long before ES left Hawaii for Hong Kong.
If the question is when did Putin begin to get genuinely worried about the intentions of Washington I believe the answer is it started when Pee Wee Bush withdrew from the ABM treaty (2002) and was ‘stick a fork in it done’ when NATO would not disclose to Moscow the details of the Patriot Defense Shield going up at the Russian border (2007).
I think I like Putin a lot less than most people on this site. I dont hate him but I am not sure if he is the savior either. I am just not a big fan of politicians in general. Still he is better than obvious crooks like Samantha Powers, that guy that answers for the white house or nasties like Kerry or John Mcain.
There is always the hope that someone will come and save us. I doubt if even Putin can come and save everyone. What is he going to do for me? I live in Canada. I still hope he can defeat the NWO but as far as restoring the west to some semblance of decency… We need to find a way to do that ourselves.
He is worthy of respect though, he clearly has a lot of accomplishments he can be proud of. He is a true leader. I just dont want him to tell me what to do or how to think.
“What Is he going to do for me”?
Living among the Natives of North America ( a very long time ago) I was taught by them a great lesson.To think of Others first. To pray for Others first.
It is because of this, that I usually ask: ”
” What will Putin do for the children & Others in Syria?
Those poor Syrians attacked daily by beheaders funded by the West.
I ask : ” What can he do to help Palestinians under the genocidal boot of Israel?
” If only he would had known about the West nefarious ideas and helped Gaddaffi not suffer such un- Godly atrocious street lynching and would Syria be not in the hell hole it has been thrown in?
I have never, as God is my Witness, asked: ” What is he going to do for me”?
Think of Others first. Those that really suffer in wars and war torn areas. Think of Others first, those that live under the IDF murdereous boots.
Btw…Putin is already doing something for “me”. He is standing up for the rights of Others.
This makes me happy and lighter in my spirit.
This makes my belief stronger that there IS a God Who has chosen Putin to help the vulnerable.
Carmel by the Sea
Respectfully, I feel I was misquoted by your comment.
The point I was making is this: I dont see Putin as the savior
Your answer (as far as I understand it) : I believe there is a God and He has chosen Putin to help the vulnerable.
So I guess we disagree. It is not the end of the world. We are allowed to have our own opinion. As long as we both do the best that we can, eventually, things will improve on earth.
It’s not the end of the world for some of us. It is, however, the end of the world for those under the bombs, missiles, in Syria, Iraq, it is the end of the world for many under the genocidal apartheid regime in Israel. To those elderly having a stroke, who happen to be someone’s father, mother, and who are not allowed to cross in an ambulance through the checkpoints because some 18 year IDF young punk decides for that life to be extinguished; it is the end of his/ her world. The death of he/ she whom I do not know, but pray for, leaves a cruel wound in the soul of their loved ones.
And yes, you understood correctly. It is my personal opinion Putin has been chosen by God Himself , not to be the ” Savior”, that title has long ago been given to He Whom we Christians called The Christ.
But yes, a helper of God, a man very close to God’s heart with a lot of power! to help some of the very vulnerable who suffer so much.
Only God knows how many lives he & those faceless soldier Russians, and those suporting Putin have saved.
It is because I truly believe God has chosen Putin, that I pray for him.
Someone once said: ” From Russia will come the Hope of the World”.
I believe that; and I am not Russian. Russia has the true seed of Christianity.
From it many Godly acts will bloom all over the world.
I may not see it bloom, but it will.
Long and healthy life to the King of the North – Putin the Great.
Glory to Christian Russia!
Nice comment Carmel, and your response Thiamin is also wise.
“He is standing up for the rights of Others.”
would you wish to comment on 3rd item from last here http://www.gks.ru/bgd/regl/b14_12/IssWWW.exe/stg/d01/07-01.htm
A bit off topic: the Russian Ministry of Defense released a new video for the Russian Land Forces Day. It looks pretty impressive.
I am not a believer in the specter of war that Russian media have been presenting, and I’ve always preferred to think that this has all just been a dishonest way to sell mass amounts of weapons and tech. But the New York Times article calling Russia an “outlaw state” is genuinely alarming.
The transmutation of the NYT from an old, benign Dr. Jekyll into the hideous Mr Hyde of the moment we see today should alarm everyone.
Forget conspiracy theories – the reality of what the Pentagon is capable of is mind-boggling:
God bless Vladimir Putin with good health and a long life. The world is in desperate need of real leaders like him.
Should be heard!

TMR 155 : Dr. Paul Craig Roberts : On Syria & Washington’s Psychopathic WWIII Gamble
Published on Saturday, 01 October 2016 15:48
PaulCraigRoberts”People say, ‘Oh the Cold War’s started again.’ You hear this constantly from pundits. I wish the Cold War would come back, because the Cold War was very carefully managed; tensions were reduced. We’ve got the opposite of a Cold War; we’ve got tensions increased beyond any level they ever existed before.”—PCR
We welcome once again Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former US Assistant Secretary to the Treasury for Ecomonic Policy, who joins us to discuss the increasingly dangerous geopolitical tensions focused upon Syria. Dr. Roberts argues that unless the European peoples wake up and refuse to co-operate with Washington’s insane neocon policy of “world hegemony”—a co-operation that helps facilitate Washington’s illegal wars around the globe—the result will almost inevitably be a thermonuclear WWIII: a war that can have no winners.

Indeed! a Russian Orthodox Christian is too much for them.
Orthodox Christianity is the Crème de la Crème in Christianity.
Btw…I am a Christian, not Orthodox. I am of a ” lower” Crème :-)
Carmel by the Sea
The India and Pakistan section seems awfully un balanced, so I added a few link here for different view to balance it out:
1. Life normal in Pakistani Kashmir, but tense on Indian side
“BAGSAR, Pakistan – Life seems quite normal in the villages along the Pakistani side of Kashmir. But on the Indian side, villagers are spending sleepless nights in temporary shelters amid soaring tensions between the two nuclear-armed rivals.
On the Pakistani side, markets and schools were open, shepherds escorted their goats and cows to graze, and children were seen visiting shops to buy candies during a visit Saturday by dozens of media members to the border village of Bagsar, some 166 kilometers (103 miles) northeast of Islamabad.”
2. Is there a “surgical strikes” or not. M K Bhadrakumar weights in here:India’s ‘surgical strikes’ remain an enigma
“… Now, the unkindest cut of all is that United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon’s spokesman disclosed in New York on Saturday that the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan “has not directly observed any firing across the LOC related to the latest incident (of September 29)”. We (India) simply stonewalled the UN’s remark…”
There are other articles for same matter by MKB you can read too. a few more published at atimes.com
3. A beautiful friendship between Russia and India by Andrew Korybko:
INDIA’S FIRST-EVER INFOWAR AGAINST RUSSIA WAS A FAILURE
“India launched its first-ever information war against Russia last week, signaling that the decades-long friendship between the two Great Powers is quickly becoming a factor of the past as New Delhi swiftly pivots towards Washington. International observers were taken aback by the fake ‘news’ story that the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW, India’s version of the CIA) planted in India’s domestic media alleging that Russia had decided to call off its joint military drills with Pakistan as a sign of solidarity with India.”
4. Some one else can post the beautiful friend ship India has with US.
thanks J. I haven’t had the chance and time to look for those links you put up while collecting material for this SITREP
It would be great if you could help with more balanced articles and contribute to Info Pak Dimension .
Here is a new one by MBK. Please comment on this as well
How to beat Pakistani propaganda at its game
Articles #1, 2, 3 will balance it out quite well. Here is #4 for you from our old friend MKB:
Why Indian public is delusional on Pakistan
“We are living in a fool’s paradise, being led up the garden path by a bombastic leadership and led to believe falsely that the international community is rooting for India, that the country’s prestige is soaring sky-high, etc. and, therefore, Pakistan stands ‘isolated’.”
I can also suggest people read dawn.com, compare to 130 year old the Hindu, and let readers decide who is more grounded and objective. And compare comments from India and Pakistan readers, and see who are more cool headed, and reasonable.
Thanks J ,
May be this guy reads the dawn newspaper and seems to be giving a balanced reply .
please comment on it ?
How do you like this one from our friend MKB just a few moments ago:
Russia, Pakistan make nice. Amen.
“The Russian ambassador in New Delhi Alexander Kadakin has spoken supportive of India — 5 days after India’s “surgical strikes” across the Line of Control. I wish Moscow had issued this statement instead of as the embassy’s press release for local publicity. For, in the best traditions of Russian diplomacy, what prevents their ambassador in Islamabad to say much the same quietly to the Pakistani side as well? (Times of India)”
Fin de siècle Kabul rings alarm bells
“Gall wrote ominously:
For Afghans, and for many of us who have followed Afghanistan for decades — I have been visiting the country since the early 1990s — the times are reminiscent of the Soviet Union’s withdrawal in 1989 after a 10-year occupation… The Taliban, supported by Pakistan, seem intent on repeating that scenario, hoping to seize control of a section of territory along the Pakistani border and declare once more their Islamic Emirate.”
“The window of opportunity for reaching a moratorium on covert operations was, perhaps, open two years ago, had there been follow-up soon after the visit by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to Delhi to attend Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s inaugural.
But on the flimsiest of alibis – Pakistan High Commissioner having a cup of tea with Hurriyet leaders – we slammed the window shut. And India now has to figure out a way to ‘de-escalate’ and will be compelled to deal with a triumphalist Pakistani military leadership, which is within sight of victory in Afghanistan.”
I am sure India will succeed where USSR and USSA failed and failing with world biggest democracy, and Hindu fundamentalists government. It has god of democracy as protection and Hindu exceptionalism as guide.
“It’s High time that GoI (Government of India) should have done something about this nuisance from across the border..now our Govt Should recalibrate its policy towards US and Russia.”
Wow, You are an Indian. I thought you were quoting the publication, but you were not.
So you stealthily implanted Indian government’s propaganda in one sided selection of articles in the “India and Pakistan” section at the end of article to persuade people’s opinion here.
Congratulations, Job well done.
Georgia and a visit of Pope Francis
It is important to note that Pope in Georgia said never to practice proselytism against the Orthodox and that having a mission to convert Orthodox worshipers would be a great sin.
According to Dačić this is until now the biggest condemnation of the Vatican procedures for canonization of Croatian Cardinal Alojzij Stepinac, who during the Second World War formed the Committee for the conversion of Serbs. No rehabilitation and release of the blame for the crimes against Serbs and the conversion of Serbs is possible, let alone canonization.
At this stage, it is highly likely that more “leaks” from KSA, TR or QR or any mercenaries group will popup. More dirt will come out as there is a growing frustration from these actors that Mission will never be accomplished, as promised and paid for. And the consequences of these leaks for these actors are not dramatic:
– KSA got a new King, meaning the previous one can safely be blamed.
– QR original ventures were done by the previous Emir and ministers.
– I don’t think Turks would be that troubled by the double-triple-quadruple cross policies by their ex-Muslim’Bro President. After all, they had to find resources to compensate for the Lira’s downfall…
– US has a Russian hacker behind each firewall, unprotecting basement servers heating Millennials socialists living underground. And this is the only topic worth being discussed by MSM.
As a fringe benefit of knowing how much money was spilled in vain, a DJT administration will be able to bid at the right level. Building a pipeline can’t be much more complex than a tower: It’s just horizontal…

Putin signs decree suspending Russia-US deal on plutonium disposal over hostile US actions
“The development was not entirely surprising, since Russia earlier expressed its dissatisfaction with how the US wants to handle plutonium reprocessing.
Washington decided it would be cheaper to mix nuclear materials with special diluents. Russia insisted that the US was violating the terms of the deal, which required it to use a nuclear reactor to transmute plutonium. Unlike the mixing technology, the latter method makes the process irreversible.
“We signed an agreement that the plutonium will be processed in a certain way, for which facilities would be purpose-built,” Putin said at the time. “We have met our commitments, and constructed the necessary facilities. The US has not.”
The pindo’s almost never adhere to the treaties they sign. They either break them, or cheat in some way. This is not a recent development, but their practice from the beginning. Dishonest treaty practices are as american as using terrorism is.
Anything goes, no matter how logically absurd, as long as israel’s, and the rest of the fascist oligarchy’s, power is maintained. Co-opt and corrupt till there is no alternative to ziofascism. This what zionist control of the political process means.
