Soleimani supported Hezbollah in Lebanon and helped bolster the government of Bashar al-Assad, and he helped to plan the Russian military intervention in Syria

Iran is the no.1 state sponsor of terror and according to president Trump, Soleimani was a monster. Obama was taking out Osama Bin Laden and everybody said is was OK, but there is hysteria because Trump was taking out Soleimani who was a dangerous terrorist.

When Osama Bin Laden was taken out, oil prices did spike before it declined again, and we see the same situation now. But there is one thing that makes this case different. America has become the nr.1 exporter of oil, and that is a game changer.

Soleimani was designated as a terrorist by the U.S and the EU for his alleged involvement in attacks that led to the deaths of American troops stationed abroad. The entity he led, the Quds Force is considered a terrorist arganization by Canada, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and The U.S.

Soleimani supported Hezbollah in Lebanon and helped bolster the government of Bashar al-Assad, a key Iranian ally, during Irans operations in the Syrian Civil War. He also helped to plan the Russian military intervention in Syria. Some countries in Europe are also supporting Hezbollah.

Hezbollah allies are Iran, Syria, Russia, Lebanon, Iraq, Cuba, North Korea and Venezuela. They also get support from Amal Movement, Houthis and Hamas. Hezbollah was founded in the early 1980`s as part of an Iranian effort to aggregate a variety of militant Lebanese Shia group into a unified organization.

Hezbollah acts as a proxy for Iran in the ongoing Iran-Israel proxy conflict. Hezbollah was conceived by Muslim clerics and funded by Iran primarily to harass Israel. Its leaders were followers of Ayatollah Khomeini.

Hezbollah`s military strength has grown so significantly that its paramilitary wing is considered more powerful than the Lebanese Army, and they organized volunteers who fought on the Bosnian side during the Bosnian War.

Since 2012, Hezbollah has helped the Syrian government during the Syrian civil war in its fight against the Syrian opposition, which Hezbollah has described as a Zionist plot and a «Wahhabi-Zionist conspiracy» to destroy its alliance with Assad against Israel. It has deployed its militia in both Syria and Iraq to fight or train local forces to fight against ISIL.

ISIL stands for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria). Officially known as Islamic State (IS). Also known by its Arabic-language acronym Daesh.

ISIL gained global prominence in early 2014 when it drove Iraqi government forces out of key cities in its Western Iraq offensive, followed by its capture of Mosul and the Sinjar massacre.

The group has been designated a terrorist organization by the United Nations. ISIL is widely known for its videos of beheadings and other types of executions of both soldiers and civilians, including journalists and aid workers, and its destruction of cultural heritage sites.

The United Nations holds ISIL responsible for committing human rights abuses, genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. ISIL committed ethnic cleansing on a historic and unprecedented scale in northern Iraq.

Their ideology is Islamic nationalism, Anti-Zionism, Anti-imperialism, Shia Jihad, Khomeinism, Anti-West and Antisemitism. Their religion is Shia Islam. Trump said he is trying to stop a war. Not to start a war. Huh. Is he trying to stop Islamic globalism?

Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq end at session highs amid tensions with Iran.

It`s the President`s day in the United States of America, and Putin is the most Powerful man on this planet

Its the Presidents Day today. In the United States. Presidents Day is always celebrated on the third Monday of February. Today, it is Washingtons birthday which is a federal holiday, so congratulation to George Washington, USAs first president, despite the fact that George Washington was born on February 22.

George Washington was the first president of the United States of America, and his term as president was from 1789 to 1793. His second term was from 1793 to 1797. He played important roles in military, leading the American Continental Army to victory over the British in 1783.

A lot of things has happened since Washington was boss in the U.S. Last friday I wrote an article about the military that is planning to take over the U.S in 2030. President Eisenhower said in a speech in 1961 that he was concerned because of the democracy was declining just because of the political power of the military system. Eisenhower is not the only one to talk about it. Take a look at the video below.

 

 

President Donald Trump is also talking about it. He said in a speech in Florida on Saturday that the U.S military is failing in their wars. They failed in Iraq. They failed in Vietnam and so on. A CIA report also concluded that their top-secret strategy in Cuba, Angola, South Africa and Nicaragua has failed.

NATO has also changed from an European alliance to an organisation led by the Americans which has become very aggressive with a goal to dominate the world’s oil and gas industry, according to Noam Chomsky. Putin did not join NATO in the war in Libya, because he said it was illegal.

What we see now is chaos in the Middle East.

It`s not so easy to build a democracy and that is not something you usually do within a few days. The military ideology to build a new and better democracy in Iraq by the military system has also failed.

On top of all these problems in the Middle-East, Forbes Magazine has President Vladimir Putin on top of their list of the worlds most powerful people. The worlds most powerful person for four years running. President Donald Trump is in second place on the list.

In the video above, John F Kennedy said “we except full responsibility for our errors and we expect you to point them out when we missed them. Without debate. Without criticism. No administration and no country can succeed, and no Republican survive.”

Just 32% of Americans have “great deal” or “fair amount” of trust in the media

Media are attacking President Donald Trump, but it seems like people isnt listening anymore. A Gallup poll from September found that just 32% of Americans have «great deal» or «fair amount» of trust in the media, which is the lowest level in the polls history.

Media are in trouble!

What tools do the establishment have if people dont belive media anymore? And what tools do the establishment have if people dont have faith in politicians anymore?

 

(RT: 26 April 2011)

You can see how media are turning things up side down. So are the politicians who have always lied. It was much more easy to lie when there where fewer media outlets. The lies was shaped and tempered by the media.

The most embarrassing lie was during the terror attack on twin towers. Former President Bush said Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, but that was a BIG lie. There were no reason to attack Iraq and people went angry because of that.

The demonstration against the war in Iraq was huge in the United States, but not only that. It is the biggest we have seen in modern history in Europe. Here is what made people pissed: The establishment didn`t listen to the people.

On top of that, people went angry at terrorists for making them feel afraid. The terrorist came as a direct result of the attack in Iraq and the killing of their leader Saddam Hussein. But it didn`t stop here. Next war was underway.

Who wrote about the war in Libya? The Media was silent like never before. We didnt hear much about it, but they bombed Libya and killed Gaddafi. People went even more angry, but it didnt stop here.

Pictures and videos from the killing of ambassador Chris Stevens who was raped and sadomized before murder made people more angry. They went crazy when they heard it took so much time before the support came to the consulate. Fox News sources said CIA in Benghazi during consulate attack denied help. Maybe Mr Stevens could be alive today?

It doesn`t help to know that the United States created al-Qaeda. It is a shame to know that ISIS is also created by the United States.

The point is that the people was against it. So are President Donald Trump. He said Saddam and Gaddafi was a big mistake. Media want us to know that Putin and Russia is dangerous, but how dangerous are they?

In 2011, Putin said: Who gave NATO right to kill Gaddafi? Who gave coalition forces in Libya the right to eliminate Gaddafi? Thats the question Vladimir Putins been asking, during an official visit to Denmark.

The Russian Premier also said NATO`s effectively joined one of the warring sides in the conflict. And more responsible action should be taken instead, Putin said.

What kind of dangerous man is saying things like that?

Take a trip to Africa and ask people about Gaddafi. They saw up to him. Gaddafi was the king of Africa. A big star. Putin didnt join NATO in Libya. He said it isnt right. Its crime, he said. They also killed Gaddafis son. What have he done? People in the West are not proud of this. They are angry.

We can see a clear picture when we know that Edward Snowden is hiding in Russia. He exposed mass surveillance by the NSA (National Security Agency). They spy on ordinary people and this is lack of people`s freedom and liberty. People are not proud of this. They are angry.

President Donald Trump like Putin who is hiding Snowden, and Putin was celebrating Trump`s victory last week.

People are not proud, and therefore, Mr Trump want to Make America great again! Good luck.

60% of the United States Naval Forces will be stationed in the Asia-Pacific by 2020

The South China Sea is very important and it has always been that. It is a marginal sea that is part of the Pacific Ocean, encompassing an area from the Singapore and Malacca Straits to the Strait of Taiwan of around 3,500,000 square kilometers.

The areas importance largely results from one-third of the worlds shipping sailing through its waters and that it is believed to hold huge oil and gas reserves beneath its seabed. The South China Sea is important for three main reasons:

  1. Oil, gas, fish and minerals
  2. Shipping
  3. A valuable buffer for China`s defense

The big question is; who is owning the sea? China are ignoring its neighbours, claiming that The South China Sea belongs to China, but other countries doesn`t agree with that, and here starts the tension.

 

Karta_CN_SouthChinaSea

 

The South China Sea is located;

  • South of mainland China, including the island of Taiwan, in the east;
  • east of Vietnam and Cambodia;
  • west of the Philippines;
  • east of the Malay peninsula and Sumatra, up to the Strait of Malacca in the west and
  • north of the Bangka-Belitung Island and Borneo

China and Vietnam have both been vigorous in prosecuting their claims. China (various governments) and South Vietnam each controlled part of the Parcel Island before 1974, so this conflict is not something new.

In July 2010, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for the Peoples Republic of China to resolve the territorial dispute. China responded by demanding the US keep out of the issue. This came at a time when both countries have been engaging in naval exercises in a show of force to the opposing side, which increased tension in the region.

The United States have so far a lot of provocative acts, and Chinese Navy chief Admiral Wu Shengli warned that these kind of acts can be a minor incident that sparks war. The Communist media recently said;

«If the United States’ bottom line is that China is to halt activities, then a US-China war is inevitable in the South China Sea. We do not want a military conflict with the Unites States, but if it were to come, we have to accept it.»

Last word is not said in this conflict, and Vice President Joe Biden said in a speech at the U.S Naval Academy:

«In the disputed waters of the South China Sea, the United States does not privilege the claims of one nation over another, but we do unapologetically stand up for the equitable and peaceful resolution of disputes and for the freedom of navigation, and today these principles are being tested by Chinese activities in the South China Sea.

U.S foreign policy is rebalancing toward the vast potential of the Asia-Pacific region, but we cant succeed if you dont show up. That`s why 60% of the United States Naval Forces will be stationed in the Asia-Pacific by 2020.

I repeat what Vice President Joe Biden said: 60% of the United States Naval Forces will be stationed in the Asia-Pacific by 2020. This is a conflict that will continue in years to come, and it is a dangerous conflict.

A war between the United States and China will be catastrophic for them both. First of all, Chia is a huge supplier for American merchants. A strong dollar against a cheap Yuan is profitable for Americans, but a war can change that.

China has been steadily accumulating US treasury securities for decades. Additionally, trade data from the US Census Bureau shows that China has been running a big trade surplus with the US since 1985.

This means that China sells more goods and services to the US, than the US sells to China.

Will China try to «buy out» the US markets through its debt accumulation?

The war with China right now is not a currency war. Nor is it a trade war. No, it is a real military war which is not hypothetical anymore. It`s real.

Saudi Arabia spend 10,4% of its GDP on military

The U.S deficit has declined nearly 20% since the same period last year. Over the last 12 months, a surplus brought the budget down to $431 billion. The surplus in June was reported to come in at $52 billion, which is the lowest in seven years.

This is a big surprise for many but many things have changed. The economic outlook is better. Revenues is higher and the dollar is still climbing higher. The budget could have been much more different if the US spent less on military spending. But, no way. Always money for war but not for peace and people.

Security is important, but not at the expense of all else. It seems like a $391 Billion F-35 jet boondoggle (2,457 planes) is more important than education and healthcare (it is the most expensive weapons system in world history). Pentagon will spend more than $1 trillion on its JSF program, according to Government Accountability Office. Is it worth it?

China will pretty soon spend more on R&D than USA and Europe combined!

President Barrack Obama has earlier said that the military spending should rise for defense. The military spending has never been higher than it is today. We know from history that the more USA is spending, the more will other countries follow them and spend even more on bombs and weapons.

Let`s take a look at the history. President Bush Sr and President Clinton made huge cuts in military spending between 1992 and 1994. Reagan spent $565,0 billion in 1982 – 1989. It dropped down to $513,4 billion per year under Bush Sr in 1990 – 1993.

us-military-spending3_pix_edited-1 copy

 

It dropped even more under Clinton from 1994 – 2001. The military spending under Clinton declined to $418,0 billion per year. That`s lower than Carter`s spending in 1978 – 1981, at $428,1 billion per year.

Then something happened.

The military spending skyrocketed. Up more than 50%! Bush Jr spent $634,9 billion per year from 2002 – 2009. Obama`s budget is $610,0 billion per year (2010 – 2015), and he wants to rise the numbers. All numbers are inflation-adjusted, and do not include spending on CIA, VA, Homeland Security, Energy, Justice, interest payments on past military spending or State Departments.

It seems like the more countries around the world spend on the military, the more chaos, violence and instability we get, and no one spend more money on defence than USA. The United States military receives more funding that the rest of the ten largest militaries in the world combined.

The highest military spending in 2014 is accounted for USA at the top with $610,0 billion, which is 182% more than China at $216 billion. Russia; only $84,5 billion, followed by Saudi Arabia at $80,8 and France; $62,3 billion.

 

Militaryspending_pix_new-edited-1 copy

 

For example; China spend four times more on military spending now than 15 years ago. Their economy is also growing rapidly. The bigger the economy is, the bigger the military budget measured in money is. USA is at the top because it is the worlds largest economy, despite the fact that China have four times as much people.

USA spend 3,5% of its GDP on military spending. That doesn`t mean they are the country in this world to spend most of their money on military, because (belive it or not) no one spend more money on military than Saudi Arabia (measured by a % of GDP).

Saudi Arabi spend 10,4% of its GDP on military.

 

War-gdp-new_edited-1

 

They are now on top of that list, replacing India which is now number four. Saudi Arabia is the world`s largest importer of defense equipment, and between 2013 and 2014, Saudi Arabia`s arms import increased over 50%.

United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia imported more on defense imports than Western Europe combined.

United Kingdom are spending more on military than ever before. India is number two on the list, followed by China. India imported $5,57 billion on military hardware. China; $2,6 billion. New report reveals that Russia has now doubled its spending from last years 4,5% of GDP. Keep in mind that most of the European countries spend about 2% of their GDP to NATO. You can imagine how powerful the USA/NATO alliance is? The vision is to protect alliance-countries, not attack other countries.

The flow of weapons shows few signs of slowing down.

Military forces are destructive. Guns and bombs are designed to hurt people and destroy things. Countries spend money on bombs and guns because they want to defend themselves against other aggressive nations. The more use of forces and deaths and destruction, the more resistance and widespread instability in the world we will see. So, what is the point?

«We kill people who kill people because killing people is wrong». What strategy is that?

Thiswar

 

I heard Yo Dwarg once said: «I heard you throw bombs on people who throw bombs at you because you are throwing bombs at them so they will stop throwing bombs at you. Just wanted to ask how it`s working so far». Let`s face it: War is stupid. A lose-lose strategy. No winners. Or…….

War can be very profitable for someone. General Dynamics are the largest U.S producers of bombs and ammunition, so war in Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan and Syria is very profitable for them. It`s also very profitable for banks.

Ordinary people have never in history asked for a war, and they are among the biggest losers. Millions of soldiers and innocent civilians lose their lives and countries will be set back decades by destroyed infrastructures.

I have never in my life heard about a referendum for war? Why not give it a try?

Some people in this world have fostered dangerous illusions about the very nature of military forces by justifying a destructive war machine that is designed to threaten or attack about anybody anywhere in combination of neocon and humanitarian interventionist ideology.

The humanitarian interventionists appealed to Americans desire to be a force for good in the world. Some powerful people have sold the idea that the world must be dominated by US military power if they want to preserve their way of life.

Diplomacy and peacemaking between U.S and USSR led to a 33% fall in global military spending in the 1990`s.

A commitment to peace and disarmament today will set this planet on a more peaceful course.
