Saudi’s Framed: Part II

The Middle East is its own power keg of rivalry, no different than various EU countries vying for power amid clashing political ideologies.   Saudi Arabia has imposed itself as the figurehead of the Middle East, much as Germany has pronounced itself as head honcho of the EU.  Saudi Arabia feels that unity is sacred, and when a child gets out of line, that child is sanctioned – Qatar.  Qatar is the rebel child.   The EU has its fair share of rebel children, but when children of these countries get out of line, it is not the business of the US to intervene.  So why would we intervene in the Middle East power struggle?

Placing the US in the position of reigning judgment on the politics of countries in the Middle East is a lose-lose scenario.

And thus, in the vein of ‘Follow The Money’, we are monetarily entrenched to Saudi Arabia – their trade and economic contributions to the US cannot be unraveled.   They have been decades in the making – Trump didn’t create them, but reality is – that’s the way it is now.   As Trump so politely emphasized, one Wapo reporter is not worth scrubbing a $110 billion Saudi deal.

On the table – $110 billion. Why are Democrats and a handful of McCainish Republicans willing to scrub that economic benefit to the US?  What does the Saudi arms deal mean and who does it benefit?

First:   A deal worth $110 billion is nothing to sneeze at – and if it is garnered by Trump, then the Liberals will do anything to uproot it in order to delegitimize Trump.   So a “Con” was created.  If Trump favors the Saudis, he’ll become media fodder in the UN Human Rights squash court –  If he dumps the Saudis, the US economy will tank.

But the con was sloppy. After all the anonymous evidence was found to be laughably faked, the only evidence left is a fuzzy video of Khashoggi entering the embassy – and gasp – no video of him exiting.   That doesn’t mean he didn’t exit – it simply means there is no video of it.

And as of right now that is the sum total of ‘evidence’ being used to convict the Saudis.

Second:   It sounds a lot like the Skripal poisoning evidence – Theresa May’s MI6 released video footage of two Russians walking down the street, the same week of the poisonings! GUILTY.

The Saudi con conveniently aligns with election time.  As did the Trump Dossier.  No coincidence there…   But given the sloppiness of the Saudi con, I would hope it wasn’t based out of MI6.

At any rate, the source at this point seems to be coming from Qatar and Al Jazeera.   The Qatar/Saudi row is waging large and in charge.   And a derailment with Saudis would mean a shift to ‘other countries’ in order to supply what is lost in Saudi trade.  Which can not happen because of the equities, treasuries and real estate holdings – way too complicated.

The amount of spending Qatar has with the US is a fragment of what Saudi Arabia contributes.   But the infighting is rooted in 1)  the Muslim Brotherhood – for which Qatar is entrenched, and  2) Iran – for which Qatar is aligned.  3) Khashoggi is head of the Muslim Brotherhood.

And therein is the core of the silly attempt to make a reporter possibly stage his own disappearance so as to ignite a war reminiscent of WWI wherein

“On 28 June 1914, Gavrilo Princip, a Bosnian  Serb Yugoslav nationalist, assassinated the Austro-Hungarian heir Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo, leading to a diplomatic crisis.    On 23 July, Austria-Hungary issued an ultimatum to Serbia; interlocking alliances quickly drew in all the major European powers with their respective colonial empires and the conflict rapidly spread across the globe.”

Unfortunately, not unlike most edited fragments of history, even the insinuation of Princip as the assassin is subject to scrutiny.   Was he any more guilty than modern scape-goats and framed assassins?  I don’t know, another blog.

Ultimately, WWI was ignited by the death of one man and resulted in the casualties of over 40 million thereafter.

Who benefitted then is who would benefit now?

The war mongers:  The Banks.  The Cabal.  Pharmaceutical and military Corporations.   The drivers are estimated to count around 100,000.

Who loses?   Everyone else.

Why did this one death frame an entire World War?

World Wars I and II have been said to be rife with scandal and corruption, wars that could have easily been avoided, except for the Cabal’s influence.  The Federal Reserve and WWI were completely aligned.   The idea for WWIII has been levied for a number of years, and would certainly be fuel to a Liberal agenda for control, population eradication, and profit – the never-ending greed profile as defined in “Follow The Money”.

Back to the Saudis:   One thing that has become a mainstay of the liberal agenda is the fact that they draw their plots from history – as though they can’t create anything new or intelligent.   The rape agenda.   The false dossier agenda.   The hack.  Always the same, always leaving a trail of grease and smut.

So who would benefit from a derailment of the Saudi military agreements – Iran and  Qatar.  And all those who have aligned their investment interests $$$$$ in Iran based on the Iran Deal that was upended by Trump.  This would include Germany which is desperate to legitimize their trade and needs the bump in their economy.

While we are left with the redundant question – who would benefit from a disruption in Saudi-US relations – it is interesting to watch Rubio demand the new judicial decree ‘guilty until proven innocent’.  Where have we heard that before?  A sloppy con and a scream of guilty…Rubio just outed himself quite finely.

Syria – Sick of Lies

So the US and Russia have called for a Syrian cease-fire, but not everyone is going to comply – including most of the ‘bad guys’; ISIS, al-Nusra, and Turkey.

If I was part of the coalition sitting around ‘not’ firing and ISIS shelled my location, I think it is a fair assumption that I’d get my booty in gear and shell back! The choice – die or fight. Hmmm.

What a strange solution to think that the bad guys will be nice and wait until the talks are over in which the coalition agrees to bond together to fight – an agreed upon definition of who the bad guys are. And right now, Turkey has joined the ranks of the bad guys with indiscriminate shelling. Of course Saudi Arabia is also using the vast stash of weapons sold to them by the US and UK and France to bomb whomever they please in Syria as well.

What the heck good is a cease fire if only the good guys comply? It’s like telling all the WWII allies to stop doing any bombing while the Nazi’s gain ground and create Holocaust No. II!!  Imagine the Generals on the field?

The US has refused to give Russia coordinates of it’s ‘good guys’ because they think doing so will put them at risk. In the meantime there are now so many factions fighting in Syria, no one is sure who is who as every month or so another faction rises up from the dust. And as everyone might notice, ISIS continues to spread – we are supposedly now bombing Libya, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Sudan – all in the fight against ISIS, and still the media would have us believe that Russia and China are the real bad guys… All of Europe is at high risk for ISIS attacks, the US is ‘ready’, and still we can not agree that this is even a pressing issue.

I just read an article about the woman, who as a girl in Vietnam suffered horrific napalm burns to most of her body, is teaching others the value of forgiveness.  During the war, her picture was plastered all over the magazine covers as she ran down the middle of the street naked, her clothes burned from her body, screaming in agony. She is grown now, but her life has been agonizing in that her wounds never healed and she has excruciating pain every day. This is what war is! It is excruciating pain.

We didn’t win Vietnam. We haven’t won our wars in a long time. And while arguments continue that we have a moral obligation to intercede, I am reminded of my father. Head of Defense Intelligence in Europe, a WWII veteran who headed a tank battalion, a lover of horses and art and me, he witnessed firsthand the daily trauma of war and the only way he could deal with it was to push it down so deep into his psyche that it would hopefully never surface – ever.

Meddling in countries that have a completely different culture than our own has proven catastrophic. Trying to make them into something they never can or want to be is – catastrophic. It is reminiscent of the missionaries who tried over and over to convert the ethnic tribes in Africa and South America to conversion, only to be slaughtered, their children raped, and their wives sliced into pieces. As gruesome as this sounds, this is the reality. And the Middle East is no different. It took Gaddafi to hold it together, as horrific as he was, it took Saddam to hold it together as disgusting as it was, because they understood the psyche of their countrymen.

We freaking goofed BIG TIME.

North Korea? China? Brazil? Leave them to their own ways and focus on helping people escape rather than annihilating countries and their populations. While ISIS continues to grow and expand, the idiocy of our bombing campaign is leaving most veterans crazed with wonder. Six drone strikes take out four trucks, seven drone strikes hit a building, eleven drone strikes cratered a ‘target’… Every veteran of military heritage knows the ridiculousness of these claims of ‘fighting the enemy’. When we can’t even agree on WHO IS THE ENEMY.

Everyone is sick of the lies. Everyone is sick of hearing military commanders who either don’t care, or who follow White House orders to circumvent the targets, spray worthless bombs, and blame other countries for indiscriminate attempts to rid this world of the enemy!

WWII – number of bombs dropped by the allies – 3.4 million tons.

Syria – number of bombs dropped – maybe 5,000 – or less.

It is NOT WORKING. Either just stop – or ramp up and create undergrounds for the civilians to find safety.

Middle East One World Order – Blackmail

Erdogan. Turkey. How a country rose to blackmail and won.

The EU has agreed to pay Erdogan $3.2 billion – to start – a deal brokered by Germany. What is their stake? Refugees. Turkey has agreed it will close the dyke that caused the influx of over a million migrants to flood into Europe – for a price.   But that price will be subject to re-negotiation each year as Turkey now has levelled the upper hand and the EU rolls over.  Germany is Turkey’s second largest import partner at 9% and ranks first as an export partner at 8.6%.   It isn’t just refugees, its economics.  Germany has a large financial stake as well as a human one. Blackmail.

The US provides ‘aide’ to Turkey to the tune of $30 billion on an annual basis despite the fact that Turkey’s GDP rank is 17th in the world! Why? So that the US can station bases in Turkey from which we launch attacks on Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq. Erdogan demanded that Assad be removed completely before he would allow US airbases. Hence the US is bound to Turkey and their ideals. Blackmail.

Turkey has been cited nearly 2000 times for Human Rights abuses. Fines were instituted, pledges made, and life, or non-life, went on as usual. Torture, disappearances, death, executions, are all a part of the day to day life in Turkey, especially if you are Kurdish. There is consensus that Erdogan continues to grant himself more exclusive power which could result in a dictatorship type of rule. In particular, the style and methodology of his rule has taken on the appearance of former Ottoman Sultan ideologies.

Last year the White House and Kerry accused Erdogan of funding ISIS. This past week Russia has made the same claim providing evidence to support the allegation. The US and the EU have remained silent. Why? Blackmail.

Voter fraud, manipulation and corruption have been an ongoing issue under Erdogan which apparently was heightened when the SECSIS counting system was installed and its authenticity was challenged because it was ‘developed in the US’. The voting system in the US is seen as inherently fraudulent by foreign countries. In 2011, a minivan was impounded by Turkish police. It contained voting ballots which were pre-stamped with the AKP vote. Erdogan is a part of the AKP party. During the 2014 elections, ballots were burned and stolen. Electrical outages prevented ballots from being counted, and officials counting the votes were routinely intimidated by Erdogan’s government. Still, the process was approved and Erdogan was elected President.

Erdogan wants more than anything to become a member of the EU. Blackmail will most likely play a part in that approval as corruption and human rights are shelved.  With close ties to Saudi Arabia and Qatar, Turkey sees itself as a rising star within the Middle East coalition of world order.

The Army of Conquest is a Syrian rebel group created in 2015 and propped up militarily and financially by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey. The group is affiliated with al-Nusra, al-Qaeda and includes factions such as; Muslim Brotherhood of Syria, Knights of Justice Brigade, Free Syrian Army, Soldiers of the Levant, and Sham Legion. It’s primary objective is to take out Assad and every member of his government.

The groups that the US supported directly, and indirectly have included; al-Nusra, Free Syrian Army, Knights of Justice Brigade, Soldiers of the Levant, Sham Legion and the Kurds. Turkey hates the Kurds, so this affiliation presents a problem.  The US has claimed that our ‘rebels’ are moderate and therefore trustworthy… thus we provide anti-tank missiles, pallets of ammunition,  TUK missiles and other advanced weaponry. Unfortunately, the moderates joined the hardcore and all weapons and financing is now shared. The logic is that we continue to provide weapons to the moderates without disclosing the moderates are now within the umbrella of al-Qaeda.  If we keep it to a whisper, maybe no one will know…

Bottom line? We are arming and financing al-Qaeda to fight ISIS. And while we are supposedly bombing ISIS in Iraq, Iraq is fighting al-Qaeda in Syria. And we are supposedly fighting al-Qaeda in Yemen. Or are we?  Because we are supporting the killing of mostly civilians.  And the Kurds we support in Syria are being bombed by Turkey in Iraq. That’s the narrative, but how can we arm al-Qaeda in one country while fighting them in another?

Blackmail.

This time it’s the Saudis. And the entire de-facto is oil and trade. Initiated by Kissinger in an attempt to make the Saudis staked in the success of the US through business and real estate ownership, he set the stage for the one thing he thought he was avoiding – blackmail. And in so doing, he assured our demise as the Saudis decided to up the ante and take over the Middle East, one ruler, one empire to invest in the future of the One World Order.

The global economy concept is seriously flawed. The Open Society concept and One World Order cannot exist. Why? Because respect and integrity and honor don’t exist. As such, blackmail and corruption will rise to the surface and become the thorn of rule within a constant flow of distrust. The US and the EU have so seriously devalued their integrity that scrambling is the day-to-day norm. Turning a blind eye on Turkey. Paying bribes. Siding with al-Qaeda. Unraveling the web is not possible.

And within this stage of Middle East blackmail, we have no friends, we have no allies, what we have is a coalition of Sunni’s who laugh at our stupidity for allowing ourselves to become the puppets in the larger scheme.

Palestinians Shunned – a reason?

Why are Palestinians shunned?  It is not just Israel, it is everywhere in the Middle East, their brothers and sisters.  Palestinians were originally defined as people that lived along the coastline of the Mediterranean on the land that is now Israel.  They were Arab, Jewish and Christian.  Most of the Christians fled to South America.  As the Jewish people were pushed from their lands in Iraq, Syria, Iran, Lebanon, etc… they fled to ‘Israel’.  Albeit the population grew because they had nowhere else to go.  But the Palestinians have nowhere else to go now either.  No one wants them.  They are refugees everywhere.

So, why does the media concentrate only on Palestinians within Israel? There are approximately 1.3 million Palestinians in Israel, 3.3 million in Jordan, 500,000 in Chile, 430,000 in Syria, 400,000 in Lebanon, 330,000 in Saudi Arabia, 225,000 in North and South America, 44,000 in Egypt, 40,000 in Kuwait, 310,000 in ‘other Arab states, and 308,000 in ‘other countries’.

Exactly how do they fair when in their Arab brother countries?

In Jordan and Syria, most Palestinian refugees have been integrated into society; however, in Jordan, only Palestinian refugees displaced by the 1948 War have Jordanian citizenship and enjoy largely favorable treatment on par with Jordanian nationals. Refugees from the Gaza Strip who did not hold Jordanian passports at the time of their flight in 1967 have been denied citizenship and are mostly confined to the “Jerash” camp. In Syria, Palestinian refugees have not been granted citizenship but have been accorded equal treatment with Syrian nationals in almost all respects. Palestinian refugees in Lebanon have fared considerably worse; sectarian tensions and the activities of the PLO have prevented their integration into Lebanese society. The majority of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon live in UNRWA refugee camps or other unofficial camps and shelters, often in conditions of abject poverty. They face restrictions on their right to work, access to education and healthcare, and ownership of property. Only those displaced in 1948 have residency rights in Lebanon whereas all other Palestinian refugees are deemed illegal immigrants.

Outside of the Operation Areas, Palestinian refugees face even more of a precarious existence.

In Egypt, Palestinian refugees are treated as foreigners and face significant restrictions on their ability to access education, government services, and employment. Renewal of residency permits is difficult and there are reports of frequent detention of Palestinian refugees by the authorities in Egypt. Iraq, once a refuge for Palestinian refugees, has now become a country of persecution; many Palestinians were targeted in, and fled from, Iraq following the fall of the Saddam Hussein regime.

In the Gulf States, particularly Kuwait, Palestinians are treated as foreign migrant workers with no permanent residency rights.

Approximately 59% of the population reside in refugee camps:

In Gaza there are approximately 1.2 million ‘registered’ refugees.

West Bank – 740,000

Syria – 500,000

Lebanon – 450,000

Jordan – 2 million

The discrepancy in populations verses registered refugees is huge. But foreign aid is based on refugee count, not population. Which opens another topic – how much money is funnelled to the Palestinians annually? By whom? And where is it spent? Have they built schools and hospitals and industry? Have they built roads and water systems and farmed crops? Do they make clothes and build homes and temples?  Or are they a welfare state wherein they do – nothing?

We constantly talk of their ‘plight’, their losses, their poverty, their poor conditions, but what has changed since they became refugees?  Those that lived in Palestine lost their homes in 1948, they were evicted by the UK.  Nearly 60 years of ‘aid’ has absolutely nothing to show for it.  Once again, welfare produces nothing.  It doesn’t ‘lift’ people out of poverty, instead it creates even greater poverty.   There is one notable exception to Palestinian refugees.  Those that fled to Chile worked the fields, made goods, sold products – and prospered.   It was hard, damn hard, but they had no choice and so they lifted themselves up.  These Palestinians were all Christian. They took no handouts, no UNRWA funding, no governmental aid. They didn’t live in refugee camps, they are well educated and have risen above their plight.

In 1950 when aid began pouring in to the Middle East, it supported about 750,000 ‘refugees’. Today the number is 5 million and growing without restriction. All children, grandchildren down the line of eternity – are grandfathered in. It is a shambles. The one example of UNRWA schools and medical facilities for the Palestinians is in a town outside of Damascus. But we obliterated Damascus, it lies in rubble. So much for that. Syrian refugees from Palestine became refugees once again after the country was bombed and Al Nusra and ISIS took over. Most fled to Jordan where they idle in camps in dire need of attention.

No one in the camps work. They are not required to and have little to no supportive education to enable them to work. It is the supreme example of pouring money down the drain of entitlement without creating a self sufficiency of production. Sixty years worth of nothing.

But why do the Arabs hate them so much? One theory is that the Palestinians have a knack for ingratiating themselves in their host country. Perhaps out of boredom, perhaps out of a need to feel a cause, or a purpose, whatever it is, Palestinians typically find themselves on the losing side of a civil uprising whether in Jordan, Iraq, Kuwait or wherever.

Lesson: no one likes an ingratiating bully…
