IRAQ: U.S. LED OCCUPATION CONTINUES 'AIR STRIKES', WHILE RUPERT MURDOCH'S 'VICE'...'EMBEDS' WITH ISLAMIC STATE. (08.08.2014)
The U.S. led Iraqi 'government' are illegally prevented from having the means to defend their own people, despite their huge oil wealth, and so the U.S. military has been 'invited' by their puppet to 'help' them, with 'airstrikes'.
irobama: programmed to kill.
We are invited to be jolly grateful that the U.S. government, of all governments, is going to 'help' protect people, from the western backed ISIL 'Jihadis' in Iraq.
Iraq's top Shia cleric Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani has called on Iraqi politicians to choose a prime minister who can end the ongoing crisis created by the ISIL Takfiri militants.
Sheikh Abdul Mahdi al-Karbalai, speaking on behalf of Grand Ayatollah Sistani, said politicians who cling to their posts are making a grave mistake
The bought and paid for corporate headline says it all.
After all, if those western created Jihadis had not popped up, who on earth would the likes of Lockheed Martin have to sell all their weapons to, that are supposedly going to 'protect' people, from probably the most Zionist 'Jihadis' to have ever walked this planet.
their bombing of Iraq has never stopped.
The British government couldn't dishonestly claim quickly enough that they are not involved in the ongoing bombing of Iraq, because the British government are already drowning in a legal quagmire, that the U.S. government do not yet face.
The fact that the British government are calling for 'humanitarian aid' in Iraq, only tells you that western governments and their cronies still hold the purse strings to oil rich Iraq.
The only 'responsibility to protect' corrupt British politicians ever think of, is the one where they check how big their own bank balances are getting.
Murdoch's very stage managed propaganda
The fact that one of Rupert Murdoch's rags has been in their own words, I kid you not, 'embedded' with ISIL, tells those ignorant enough to pretend they do not know, all anyone would need to know, about the fact, ISIL is bought and paid for western bullshit.
we knew medyan in his previous incarnation as a local al-cia-eera troll when we were in parliament square
inner workings: we all get the in 'bed' with bit.
The idea that ISIL just happened to conveniently invite Rupert Murdoch to 'embed' with them, is ridiculous, any which way you might choose to consider it.
The Rupert Murdoch translation of the ISIL Jihadis 'du jour' goes something like this:
“..I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established,” Abu Mosa, a spokesman for the Islamic State (IS), formerly know as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), told VICE Media. “Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq." “We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House...”
Nothing new there then.
'Vice' caters to the younger generation of modern western 'Jihadis', while serving the far older interests of murderous 'Atlanticists'.
Yes indeed, Mr Murdoch sleeps around with the likes of Madeline Albright and Condoleeza Rice, to name but a few on the 'Atlantic Council' of warmongers.
It is important to understand the thuggery behind the veiled threats and worse, in this Atlantic Council hit piece on Russia, involving the recent sanctions, following the downing of MH17.
Last week was a good one for both the transatlantic relationship and the cause of freedom in Ukraine. It followed weeks in which Moscow had escalated its war in southeast Ukraine, sending advanced weaponry and more fighters, and directly shelling Ukrainian forces. On Tuesday, after a month of dawdling, the EU joined the United States in imposing major sanctions on the Russian economy. What, finally, led Brussels to act?
Atlantic Council meetings last week in Brussels, Berlin and London – with more than forty NATO, EU, German and British officials, journalists and national security analysts – reflected a number of reasons for the sudden decision to impose stiff sanctions. It was not simply that Europe blamed Moscow’s insurgents in Ukraine for shooting down Malaysian Flight 17. After all, Chancellor Merkel said publicly the day after that it was too early to discuss additional sanctions. For many of our interlocutors a greater factor was the separatists' callous handling of the victims' remains, theft of their property, removal of evidence from the site and obstruction of investigators. As one cautious interlocutor asked, what type of people treat the dead like this? For Europeans, it was a clarifying moment.
This clarity was particularly felt by the Dutch, whose citizens were two-thirds of those killed on the flight and who heretofore had opposed tough sanctions on Moscow for its adventure in Ukraine. Indeed, the Dutch reaction to the shoot-down mirrored Chancellor Merkel's. But the insurgents' criminality at the crash site sparked an outrage that led Dutch politicians to urge strong measures against the Kremlin. Dutch advocacy left the EU's other opponents of decisive action reluctant to oppose the sanctions.
Equally important was the impact in Germany, where the public had been slow to grasp the meaning of the conflict a few hundred miles to its east. Explanations for Chancellor Merkel's hesitation to move decisively against Moscow usually cite Germany’s dependence on Russian gas exports and its large trade account with Russia. Another important factor is the imbalance of public discussion in Germany of the Ukraine question. Much German commentary has been shaped by Putin-Verstehen, a sense of sympathy toward the Kremlin and Mr. Putin that paints their behavior in a favorable light and gives them the benefit of the doubt in any situation that looks like a dispute with the United States. (Growing skepticism toward the United States, including anger over the Obama administration's ham-handed management of the NSA eavesdroppping scandal, also feeds this.) Putin-Verstehen (or "Putin-Understanding") has made it much harder for the German public to realize the suffering that Moscow's insurgency has inflicted on the people of Ukraine.
The German public's revulsion over insurgent actions at the crash site created the political conditions for the chancellor to impose the sanctions on Russia that she had let slide at the end of June. Surprisingly, even spokespersons for German industry expressed support for last week's sanctions.
Even as European sentiment crystallized last week on the need to send Mr. Putin a strong message, the Continent still needed a transatlantic lead to make it happen. For months, the Obama administration has been encouraging its European allies to move toward stronger sanctions. The tough sanctions that Washington imposed in mid-July – when Brussels took rather modest measures – were taken in a way sensitive to European interests, which would make it easier for Europe to join later.
As conditions emerged in the past two weeks for a stronger response, the US exerted the necessary leadership. President Obama organized the conference call July 28 with the British, French and German leaders to lock up an understanding on additional sanctions. Susan Rice next spoke with her counterparts from those countries to nail down the details.
Last week's results were good, but more sanctions likely will be needed to persuade Mr. Putin to pull back Russian fighters and armaments from Ukraine. Going forward EU caution will probably provoke further frustration in Kyiv and Washington. Yet last week was a good reminder that, as Winston Churchill said, the only thing worse than conducting a campaign with allies is conducting one without them.
John E. Herbst is the director of the Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center at the Atlantic Council. He served as the US ambassador to Ukraine between 2003 and 2006.
The truly evil Madeline Albright, who publicly claimed the murder of 500,000 Iraqi children, was a price those children should pay, and the likes of the war criminal Condoleeza Rice, who are both part of the Atlantic 'Council' are not known for having any sort of caring side.
There is obviously more to the at best criminal negligence, of the Ukraine 'authorities' directing a civilian passenger plane into their own war zone, than meets the eye.
The article highlights the very close planning between committing the crime, and creating the propaganda to build their own bank balances.
It is very clearly stated that the propaganda that was used, to achieve 'sanctions', was to focus on the crash site, not how the plane ended up there.
Of course the U.S. government has turned a 'blind eye' to the U.S. oil giant Exxon Mobil, ignoring U.S. government 'sanctions'
We are now being asked to forget who ISIL really are, which tells you how ISIL got to be doing what they are now doing in Iraq, because the well publicized 'air strikes' are leading us somewhere that has nothing to do with helping civilians, anywhere.
The illegal U.S. led occupation of Iraq, is likely to continue, until the likes of Mr 'hey we torture people' Obama is brought to account.
It is only civilians who are ever targeted in any 'war', and anyone who tells you anything else is a liar.
Soldiers do what they are told, because it is always the civilians, everyone is really trying to control.
The -majority- of civilians in Iraq are understandably not pro-American.
Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Dresden, Gaza, were not, and are not, actually legitimate 'military' targets.
In Iraq, Obama has invented his own.
