Whe are the real perpatrators of this attack?

Whe are the real perpatrators of this attack?

When trying to turn back the insanity of the myopic stupidity of the United States government it is often necessary to pay attention to current events and predicting which ‘chess move’ they are trying to set up next. 

The winds of war produce both bad results but they also uncover the truth for those paying attention.  Sometimes those hot winds blow away the obfuscation and the facts are clearer to see.

I think there are major revelations about to come out regarding Benghazi and 4 dead Americans including a US Ambassador to Libya.

Ukraine has been a long sought goal since 1991 and the collapse of the USSR.  They want Ukraine to be the next low wage labor pool for the EU (both cheap labor and tax base for a failing European Union), and NATO pushed to the border of Russia.  You have to dig deep and pay attention but that is actually 2 disparate and competing factions trying to carve up Ukraine for their own purposes.

They were in error, as is usually the case that Russia was just going to sit idly by.  Russia is in fact a Superpower and if the USA cannot handle Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria, (and Georgia August 2008), only complete idiots would think they can take on Russia. Well, Washington DC is wall-to-wall idiots but that digresses from the point at hand.

As matters surrounding ISIS / ISIL and the failed regime change in Syria have evolved, and the attack of ISIS into Iraq, many apparently unrelated facts are surfacing.  These facts are connecting back in time to clarify a picture about Benghazi that has been intentionally kept out of focus for the world to see clearly what the parties were up to.

I knew in 1993-1996 that some true nutcase warmongers were trying to design a global war on terror to be launched against Islam.  That was the doing of war hawks in the USA salivating at the chance to be the sole Superpower and global masters as Empire America.  The Israelis has a hand to play in that and their Fascist Zionist Neocons because they wanted US war power directed at the enemies of Israel.

That is exactly why I walked out on the RNC on June 6, 1996 and warned them they would kill America if they launched such an idiotic scheme.  Here we are 18 years later and the devastation is utterly complete on America and it was self-inflicted by people that need to be put out of the US political process and put before US District Courts on criminal charges.

"Cowboy Bush"

“Cowboy Bush”

For example, I knew shortly after 9-11-2001 that the Bush Administration intended to take out 7 nations during his administration.  As we all know now they failed to take out the first two being Afghanistan and Iraq.

There was no ‘mission accomplished’, yet they persisted with a myopic game plan that had led to nothing but death, destruction and chaos.  It is also led to staggering levels of US debt and nothing to show for it other than more photo ops trying to evade the central issues and questions.

It has also led to colossal damage to the United States itself, to the point their entire Petrodollar Empire is collapsing even as you read this.  That will have huge negative effects on the USA and who is to blame are these one-phrase mynah bird morons in Washington DC that only know two phrases.

Phrase One being ‘regime change’ due to humanitarian reasons, and of course democracy, self-determination, freedom and liberty are callously part of the mantra.  That their methods of regime change are genocide and war crimes are points they hope others do not pick up on and see clearly for what they are.

Phrase Two being ‘another 9-11 is headed at USA’ and yet they refuse to get to the bottom of why 9-11-2001 happened in the first place.  They have worn out the USA and the world with their incessant propaganda and fear mongering as their justification for the warmongering.

Where there was a time that true enemies of the USA were somewhere in the thousands, they now number into the tens of millions due to the stupidity of Washington DC and the pursuit of an unattainable global empire.

After 9-11-2001 and even before the assault on Afghanistan on October 7, 2001, generals inside of the Pentagon had already been notified that Iraq was next.  That was the first two weeks after 9-11, not when they started lying and falsifying evidence in 2002 in advance of the US-UK assault in March 2003.

Shortly after the Afghanistan assault to take over the Trans Afghanistan Pipeline right-of-way on October 7, 2001, those same generals inside the Pentagon were sent a memorandum from Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld informing them that 7 nations were the objective; Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Palestine, Lebanon, and Iran.

After the Bush cabal coup, the Pentagon just let itself be cheaply used.

After the Bush cabal coup, the Pentagon just let itself be cheaply used.

Bear in mind the dates, in 2001 but the overall strategy for US imperialism dates back to 1993-1996.  Also bear in mind that all 7 of those nations are enemies of Israel and are Islamic nations.

Do not think for a moment that those nations were collectively behind 9-11-2001.  None of them had anything to do with it; the US government and elite were after a strategy of global US military domination.  That can easily be proven in a court of law when parties join hands and do just that.

In an unguarded conversation, former 4-star general and supreme commander of NATO General Wesley Clark was openly discussing what he had learned inside the Pentagon shortly after 9-11-2001.

The folks at Storm Clouds Gathering have put together a great piece on Iraq and in this video are the comments of retired General Wesley Clark, at 8:50 into this video presentation.

The only thing this Storm Clouds Gathering video does not present are facts I have reported repeatedly in the past.  George H W Bush had US Special Forces posing as Kuwait Navy and firing at both Iraq and Iran at least 8 weeks before US Ambassador April Glaspie told Saddam Hussein that the US had no interest in their ‘Arab-Arab dispute’. I personally know some of the US soldiers that were sent to start a war by President George H W Bush months before the US Ambassador basically gave Saddam Hussein a green light to solve the dispute with Kuwait on his own.

If I were POTUS, I would have the name George H W Bush stricken from the new war toy Nimitz-class aircraft carrier.  That is how low my regards are for that man, and even lower for his Village Idiot son.

I still remember the vile words uttered by George H W Bush:  ‘Saddam, get out of Kuwait!!!’  The only reason Iraq invaded Kuwait was the USA refused to help resolve a legitimate dispute, professing that they had no interest in an ‘Arab-Arab dispute’.  You will see former US Ambassador to Iraq in the same video above that features General Wesley Clark, too.

I will soon post why Hillary Clinton needs to be shown the door.  Most readers will be surprised at what that article discloses about George H W Bush and why I will never vote for anyone named Clinton or Bush.

I am the type of man that is adamant about the truth.  To me sending Americans or soldiers from any other nation to die for a lie is despicable.  We have now seen such despicable lies uttered by US Presidents regarding Iraq 1991, Afghanistan 2001, Iraq 2003, Georgia 2008, Libya 2011, Syria 2012, Syria / Iraq 2014, and more.

The very concepts of democracy, self-determination, freedom, liberty, peace and prosperity could be fact rather than the cruel illusion they are under the boot heels of liars that have agendas.  They use such and worse for marketing purposes, but do not mean what they say.  It is all about controlling public opinion, otherwise their mantra and words are shallow, hollow and untrue.

That leads us to Libya and what was promoted as a need to implement regime change in that nation.  Actually, the USA and EU had no just grounds so they had to invent one.  The USA had no grounds to attack Afghanistan until 9-11-2001. 

They needed that Pearl Harbor to pull out the sword and have US public opinion behind their deceitful actions.  They had the same problem in Libya because the former brutal tyrant Qaddafi had implemented many programs to help the people of Libya and that has now all been destroyed by the US, EU, NATO actions to take out Qaddafi.

Gaddafi bet the farm that his NeoCon buddies would save him... and lost

Gaddafi bet the farm that his NeoCon buddies would save him… and lost

He had moved from being a despised leader to an adored leader doing the right thing for his own people.  The standard of living was excellent and climbing.

In addition to Julian Assange / Wikileaks and even before Edward Snowden and the NSA spying leaks, there is an MI5 whistleblower from the UK that has come forward with some very important information.

Her name is Annie Machon and she is relating how some ‘Al Qaeda types’ approached MI6 about funding so they could regime change Libya and assassinate its leader Colonel Muammar Qaddafi.

Take the time to watch and listen, you will learn some things you probably do not know.

I think most Americans are waking up to the reality that Al Qaeda is Al CIA-duh.  It was in fact created by President Jimmy Carter and then National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski around 1978 as part of the strategy to stir up Islamic dissent against the USSR in those CIS regions we now know as Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.

The latter Brzezinski being the author of ‘The Grand Chessboard’ which we all now know is the most lunatic plan ever conceived for US domination in military, petrodollars, hegemony and control of oil, natural gas and pipelines.

The Grand Chessboard strategy was to take over the oil and natural gas, get control of huge deposits and the pipeline right-of-way to get it to world markets, and push NATO and US military bases to the very borders of the Russian Federation.

The USA lost the chess match and now is in complete desperation mode to get their train wreck back on the track.

The USA and EU had no valid reason to attack Libya, except oil and the Libyan plan to implement a gold backed dinar as the currency to trade in oil.  What Qaddafi was doing would have changed the economic power of Africa and the Middle East, which is something the USA and EU desperately wanted to avoid.  They were horrified of oil being indexed to a gold-backed currency when the objective has been economic hegemony through fiat US dollars.

Then we have Fascist Zionist Neocon War Hawk John McCain posing with ISIS rebels in Syria during his Memorial Day 2013 trip to that nation./

If that does not put the signature on the painting as to who ISIS really is, you need to pay closer attention.

Then Gordon Duff of Veterans Today disclosed that the attack in Benghazi was precision timed with the public outrage in the Islamic world toward a podcast that was put forth by Terry Jones.

Terry Jones, a long time CIA Gladio operative - kicked out of German for working with Neo-fascists

Terry Jones, a long time CIA Gladio operative – kicked out of Germany for working with Neo-fascists

The MSM keeps leaving out of their reporting that Terry Jones is CIA, a CIA-Gladio type dinosaur that surfaces every so often when the USA is implementing terrorism, chaos and disruption.

If you do not know about ‘Operation Gladio’ where the US, UK and NATO were in fact waging a war of terrorism against Western Europe nations, look it up and get an education. This was back when the Iron Curtain and Cold War were still very much a reality.

The sudden surge of Islamic outrage coincided with the release of a podcast by Terry Jones that was very insulting to the Muslim world.  The video is in the Veterans Today link above, so if you are concerned about this incessant madness take the time to view the short podcast.

CBS reported the day after the 4 Americans were killed and framed the discussion as a coordinated attack by terrorists, rebels, insurgents, etc.:

The people at Judicial Watch have filed a lawsuit against the US government to force the release of classified documents pertaining to what they are hiding about Benghazi and the death of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other people.

I know the lead investigative journalist for Judicial Watch on this matter Micah Morrison.  Mr. Morrison is formerly of the Wall Street Journal and was active in the Kenneth Starr Special Prosecutor investigations of the Clintons in Arkansas, and he later wrote the multi-volume books ‘Whitewater’ disclosing all that he learned in that fiasco.  Micah has been in my home when I still lived in Little Rock, AR.

Ambassador Stevens

Ambassador Stevens

Many people are digging into the facts to establish exactly what the CIA and Ambassador Christopher Stevens were up to in Benghazi.  Many are also digging into what links there are between the UK based military contractor Aegis Defense Services and the U.S. intelligence community.

I think most people already know that the MOD [Ministry of Defense] in the UK and the Pentagon are joined at the hip on many policy decisions they attempt to push, implement, enforce, etc.

It is not a stretch at all that both CIA and MI6 are also pretty much joined like Siamese twins on many issues. That the CIA has their fingerprints on the Terry Jones podcast that created outrage in the Muslim world, and that MI5 whistleblower Annie Machon stated very clearly that MI6 was approached to assist with the takedown of Libya and the assassination of Colonel Muammar Qaddafi are points I am not missing.

It has now come out that NSA and CIA are using social media like Facebook and Twitter as part of their ploy to affect public opinion and regime change in targeted nations.

That fact ties back in to how they stirred up Islamic outrage due to the Terry Jones / CIA podcast cited above because the podcast was blasted out all over the world in just such a manner.  It is a known fact that the outrage towards that podcast originated from within the USA.

Most that know me know that I have ‘a doo doo detector of a prosecutor’ and mine is smelling the following as to the constant evasive actions we are seeing from Obama, Hillary Clinton and both sides of the aisle in Congress.

First, MI6 was approached for funding for regime change and assassination of Qaddafi.  That is a smoking gun.

Second, the podcast that was used to incite riots and protests was in fact via Terry Jones, a known CIA operative that MSM just keeps providing “Terry Jones Lite” in their reporting.  This has every appearance of being an intentional USA act to incite riots, protests and outrage that were otherwise not present and non-existent.

It is a known fact that the podcast originated from the USA that supposedly set off the riots and protests due to the outrage it produced in insulting Mohammed, the prophet that established Islam.

Third, I always watch for what the Latin phrase ‘causus belli’ means:  “An act or event that provokes or is used to justify war”.  The USA is flat running out of excuses to justify its actions.  Their pretense of 9-11-2001 to attack Afghanistan has turned into an unmitigated disaster and the US lost the war.

The same applies and the entire world knows Bush and Tony Blair lied, fabricated and launched another Unjust War in March 2003 that has also turned into a catastrophe for US foreign policy.  The USA has lost in Iraq, too.

Fourth, their attempted regime change in Libya is now known to be a fiasco and yet another failed USA foreign policy.

Fifth, their attempt regime change in Syria has now disclosed that ISIS / ISIL were trained by US and UK advisors at a secret base in Jordan.  That regime change failed due to the recent re-election of President Bashar Al-Assad and ISIS then spills over into neighboring Iraq.  It has also been disclosed that US ‘allies’ Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, each monarchial kingdoms that do not want US-style democracy in the Middle East have been financing these ‘terrorists’ while the USA has been training and arming them.

It's a crummy photo but an historical one now

It’s a crummy photo but an historical one now

If you missed the Memorial Day 2013 photo of Senator John McCain posing with ISIS rebels, financed by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait, armed and trained by USA and UK, please make sure you get that mental picture clearly in your head.

Now the USA is considering air strikes on both Iraq and Syria.  How convenient since Congress said ‘NO’, and the American people said ‘NO’ to air strikes in Syria as part of the plan for regime change.

Keep remembering the video link above where retired General Wesley Clark is disclosing what he found out inside of the Pentagon shortly after 9-11-2001. My doo doo detector says that there is a skunk in this woodpile and here is what I think it is.

I think the USA intentionally sacrificed a US Ambassador and the other three Americans to justify the continuation of a strategy that has failed miserably in Afghanistan, Iraq, Georgia, Libya and now Syria.  Over on the far side of the Atlantic in Washington DC, they need any excuse they can dream up to keep trying to keep the American people sitting still for their insanity in DC.

Would they do such a thing?  They sacrificed over 4,800 American soldiers and God only knows how many wounded, maimed and Iraqi dead on the basis of lies.  Yes, they will do such things if the agenda is more important than the truth.

Now we have Arch-Neocon Senator Lindsay Graham warning of another 9-11, McCain espousing and other MSM talking heads and Neocon Nitwits that the USA needs a war to stimulate the US economy.  That rhetoric is useless since they have already bankrupted the USA chasing and failing since September 11, 2001.

There are about 100 better ways to do that, but not when the agenda is failing and they are desperate.

Clark put the word out but never led the charge

Clark put the word out but never led the charge

This entire US-UK Twiddle-Dee, Twiddle-Dum screw up is vividly clear for most of the world to see and that includes what Retired General Wesley Clark was discussing in the video link above.  Here we are 4 nations into their game plan (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Syria) and the entire world now knows what screw-up and catastrophe look like coming out of London and DC.

Tony Blair suddenly re-emerges trying to wash his hands clean of blood that will not wash off and many, including me, London Mayor Boris Johnson and others are blasting Blair for his continued lies and attempts to act like he did nothing wrong.  Just for starters he and Bush raped a nation, not to mention the lies for justifying an Unjust War, the killing, genocide and a long list of war crimes.

They are running out of excuses to the American people as to why they are pursuing a plan that is destined to fail.  Lies and Unjust Wars never succeed.  History has proven that for centuries, and since 9-11-2001 the USA has emphatically proven that to be true.

There is another angle of this that better describes why the RNC Fascist Zionist Neocons and the DNC Fascist Zionist Neocons are playing political ping pong and evading the truth about Benghazi.  The ones that get blamed for why there is a US Ambassador dead in Libya is probably going to get buried in the 2014 mid-term elections and the 2016 elections for a new President of the United States.

Desperate people do desperate things and I see flashing neon lights on the foreheads of most of the talking heads and politicos in Washington DC.  Those flashing neon lights say one word:  LIAR.

The Iraq Cash Cow: Part I


As Republican war hawks call for yet more blood and treasure to be spilled on the sands of Mesopotamia, oil prices spike and military-industrial overlords prepare to milk the US Treasury for yet more contracts.

Feeding the bulls.

by Dean Henderson

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has refused to accept a salvation government as his army continues to conduct mop-up operations against ISIL Takfiri militants. Press TV reports that ISIL forces were trained at secret CIA camps inside Jordan. ISIL uses US and Saudi-supplied weapons.

As Republican war hawks call for yet more blood and treasure to be spilled on the sands of Mesopotamia, oil prices spike and military-industrial overlords prepare to milk the US Treasury for yet more contracts.

War is business and business is good. For the banksters, permanent war has been the antidote to a deflationary death spire and the jail time that would surely follow.

(Excerpted from Chapter 12: The Gulf Oil War: Big Oil & Their Bankers…)

As Ralph Lewis – senior consultant for Chevron Texaco – once stated, “The trick in the Middle East is to keep it stirred up.”

Lewis’ comments mirror statements made in a Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) publication titled,The Middle East in the New World Economic Order.  The article appeared in the CFR’s Foreign Affairs, which is read religiously at the State Department.  The most telling sentence reads, “The US wants maximum tension between Middle East OPEC countries.”

The Iran/Iraq War decimated both OPEC price hawk countries, but the “maximum tension” wasn’t over yet.  US war ships crowded into the Persian Gulf. A massive US militarization of Saudi Arabia and the GCC countries was under way.  The stench of war was in the air again.  Saudi Arabia and Kuwait had loaned Saddam Hussein $120 billion to prosecute his war in Iran.  Now the creditors came calling.

With oil prices in the gutter due to GCC overproduction, Iraq was forced to embark on a massive privatization campaign, selling off state assets to obtain the hard currency needed to pay off its debts.  This hit at the heart of the Iraqi people who took pride in the nationalization of the Iraqi Petroleum Company, previously owned by the Four Horsemen.  For decades Iraq had guarded its resources from multinational corporations, becoming the most modern and prosperous nation in the Middle East.  Now the international bankers were swarming like vultures.  Iraq’s agricultural sector was sold to the highest bidder, leaving many farmers impoverished.  Labor unions were banned.  Foreign investment, disallowed since 1964, flowed into the country.  Local elites bought up state-owned factories.

In 1989 the US/Iraq Business Forum was established.  Facilitating its formation was Kissinger Associates – a private consulting firm founded by Henry Kissinger.  President Bush Sr. had just taken office. He included two former directors of Kissinger Associates in his cabinet – Undersecretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger and National Security Adviser Brent Scowcroft.

The US/Iraq Business Forum was the vehicle through which US corporations gained access to the newly liberalized Iraq economy.  Its members included Bechtel, Fluor, GM, Texaco, Occidental Petroleum, Westinghouse and AT&T.  That same year Atlanta-based Banca Nacionale de Lavaro (BNL) approved $3 billion in loans to arm Saddam.  More than $360 million in US taxpayer money ended up in Gulf International Bank, a Saudi/Iraqi venture in Bahrain.

BNL’s International Advisory Board included David Rockefeller who, according to economist Paul Adler, met on at least three occasions with Saddam Hussein. Chase Manhattan led a consortium that financed the US/Iraq Business Forum.

Iraq’s attempts at privatization proved a dismal failure.  State assets were auctioned off for pennies on the dollar, oil prices remained low and Iraq spent the little money it made through the sales rebuilding an Iraqi economy devastated by the war with Iran, which left 750,000 Iraqis dead.

Saddam Hussein took a left turn, a la Noriega, and railed against US imperialism.

Russian jets to aid the fight against Sunni rebels in Iraq – PM Maliki


Jets from Russia and Belarus will hopefully make a key difference in the fight against ISIS in Iraq, the country’s Prime Minister Nouri Maliki said. He expressed regrets over Iraq’s contract with the US, saying their jets are taking too long to arrive.

“God willing within one week this force will be effective and will destroy the terrorists’ dens,” he told BBC Arabic.

Meanwhile, Maliki criticized the process of purchasing US jets as “long-winded,” adding that the radicals could have been repelled if Iraq had proper air defense.

“I’ll be frank and say that we were deluded when we signed the contract [with the US],” Maliki said. “We should have sought to buy other jet fighters like British, French and Russian to secure the air cover for our forces; if we had air cover we would have averted what had happened,” he went on.

Maliki said Iraq bought second-hand jet fighters from Russia and Belarus “that should arrive in Iraq in two or three days.”

The radical Sunni Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS or ISIL) has taken large parts of the country’s north from the Shia government.

During the interview, the prime minister also confirmed that Syria was behind Tuesday’s air strikes that targeted Iraqi rebels, adding that he welcomed the move.

“They carry out their strikes and we carry out ours and the final winners are our two countries,” he said.

On Tuesday, unidentified bombers launched an air strike on ISIS positions in the northern Iraqi city of al-Qaim.

Iraq’s own air force has also been carrying out attacks on insurgent strongholds over the past week.

On Monday, radical Sunni militants regained control over the northern city of Tal Afar and an airport. A day earlier, jihadists captured three new towns and two border crossings – one with Jordan and the other with Syria.

The ongoing offensive by ISIS is aimed at achieving total dominance in Iraq by radical Sunni militants.

Hundreds of Iraqi soldiers have been killed by the insurgents since June 9, when the Sunni militants started their offensive, according to Iraqi forces.

The United Nations says more than 1,000 people – mainly civilians – have been killed during the surge thus far.

Vaccine researcher charged with felony crimes for research fraud; may spend 20 years in prison over faked AIDS vaccine


by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Tags: research fraudAIDS vaccinescience-based medicine
(NaturalNews) Scientific fraud is so common in the vaccine industry, it’s practically the default business model. The truth is that most vaccines don’t work, so in order to make them appear to work, researchers routinely spike blood samples of vaccinated test subjects with antibodies, making it appear the vaccine caused the body to produce those antibodies.This is exactly what Merck does with MMR vaccines, according to the company’s own former virologists who filed a False Claims Act with the federal government. It’s also why up to 97% of children who contract measles or mumps were already vaccinated against measles and mumps.

Now, a National Institutes of Health-funded vaccine scientist who was celebrated as achieving a breakthrough vaccine against HIV has confessed to spiking the test subject blood samples with antibodies. Dong-Pyou Han had taken $5 million in NIH grant money to further his “research” at Iowa State University. The mainstream media and vaccine advocates hailed his research as groundbreaking, “game-changing” advancements in the search for an AIDS vaccine.

But now, it turns out Han committed outrageous scientific fraud that wasted taxpayer money and diverted resources away from other important research projects. So federal prosecutors have taken the extraordinary step of charging Han with making false statements to the government. He now faces four felony counts, each of which carries a maximum prison sentence of five years. (Yes, lying to the government is a federal crime. But the government lying to us, well… that’s another matter altogether.)

“It’s an important case because it is extremely rare for scientists found to have committed fraud to be held accountable by the actual criminal justice system,” said Retraction Watch co-founder Ivan Oransky in an ABC News article. (1)

The vaccine industry routinely gets away with fraud: Why aren’t more criminal charges filed?

All this brings up the question of why more fraudulent vaccine researchers aren’t charged with felony crimes. It also begs the question of why companies like GlaxoSmithKline, which openly admit to committing multiple felony crimes in the routine bribing of doctors, are still allowed to conduct business with the government at all.

The vaccine industry, you see, is run like a criminal mafia that has blanket legal immunity thanks to the U.S. Congress. Vaccines are the only product sold in the USA which can be defectively manufactured and kill people, yet still face zero legal liability in the courts.

This is true even when vaccines have been found to contain tiny shards of glass, high levels of toxic mercury, a brain-damaging heavy metal, or even live viruses that literally infect people with the very disease the vaccine claims to prevent.

In the United States, a vaccine manufacturer could spike their vaccines with motor oil, cancer viruses, live bacteria, hexavalent chromium, Agent Orange or any other chemical they wanted, and the manufacturer would still have total immunity from all lawsuits. Because of this immunity, vaccine manufacturing has zero quality control pressure in the real world, because vaccine manufacturers are not liable for defective products. So what’s the difference if a few batches a year accidentally contain SV40 cancer viruses, or shards of glass, or too much mercury?

That’s why Dr. Maurice Hilleman, former Merck vaccine developer, openly said, “I think that vaccines have to be considered the bargain basement technology for the 20th century.” (SOURCE)

Vaccine and drug researchers who commit fraud are also routinely given a slap on the wrist rather than being charged with felony crimes. Remember the psychiatric doctor named Charles Nemeroff who held a chairman position at Emory University? Even after being caught secretly taking $800,000 from GlaxoSmithKline and stripped of his chairmanship, Emory University — a dubious institution steeped in drug money influence — failed to fire Nemeroff and kept him on staff. According to the WSJ, 14 other Emory University doctors also received money from the Depression and Anxiety journal to write articles about Effector. At Emory, it seems, selling out to the drug industry is just a routine way of participating in academia.

It’s time to end legal immunity for research fraud

Vaccine researchers in particular have long enjoyed a presumed legal immunity, even when they commit outrageous scientific fraud. The public has been hoodwinked into thinking vaccines always work and drug companies are engaged in “evidence-based medicine” even when it’s all being faked.

In truth, most vaccines don’t work on most people. This is readily admitted on the vaccine inserts themselves, believe it or not. For example, I have in my possession a Flulaval Influenza Virus Vaccine made by GlaxoSmithKline. This insert says, word for word, all the following astonishing things:

“There have been no controlled trials adequately demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with Flulaval.” (The vaccine insert openly admits the vaccine is backed by zero evidence? So much for so-called “evidence-based medicine.” Now you’re taking a flu shot on pure faith. Perhaps they should be called Evangelical Vaccines…)

Because some readers were skeptical that a vaccine insert would openly admit the vaccine doesn’t work, I have taken a photo of this insert as shown here. This is the photo the vaccine industry desperately hopes you never see:

Other astonishing statements made on the vaccine insert include:

“Safety and effectiveness of Flulaval have not been established in pregnant women, nursing mothers or children.” (And yet this vaccine is routinely administered to pregnant women.)

“Safety and effectiveness of Flulaval in pediatric patients have not been established.” (Yet the vaccine is also routinely given to children.)

“Flulaval has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or for impairment of fertility.” (It might cause cancer and spontaneous abortions, in other words, but they don’t really know.)

“Do not administer Flulaval to anyone… following previous administration of any influenza vaccine.” (No one who has already had a flu shot in any previous year should take this flu shot. Yet flu shots are routinely given year after year to the very same people who often end up getting the flu anyway because their immune systems are so compromised.)

Total immunity from FTC over blatant marketing fraud

What’s interesting to note about flu vaccines in particular is that they also enjoy complete immunity from the FTC even while making blatantly false claims in their marketing.

The FTC, you see, routinely goes after scammy weight loss supplement companies for making false claims. They even threw Kevin Trudeau in prison for making false statements in a weight loss book.

But when influenza vaccines are aggressively marketed with blatantly false claims — both literal claims and implied claims — the FTC utterly ignores them. Think about it: what other product can get away with being marketed to the public as working even though its own safety sheet openly admits there’s no evidence the product works at all?

Can you imagine an oil company selling gasoline that didn’t combust? Or a soap company selling a liquid that didn’t contain any soap? How about a wine maker selling a beverage that turned out to be grape juice instead of wine? In all these cases, people would get angry and the FTC would investigate. But when flu shots are sold without any scientific evidence that they really work, the federal government looks the other way and pretends no marketing fraud is taking place.

Thank goodness at least one branch of the feds is charging Dong-Pyou Han with crimes related to the massive vaccine fraud he committed. This is at least a start. If all fraudulent vaccine researchers were similarly charged with felony crimes, we’d have a court system full of such cases and we’d probably have to build a whole new prison just for the vaccine criminals, where they could all practice exposing each other to Anthrax by using CDC-approved research protocols.

Obama seeks $500M to train, arm Zio-Wahhabi Rat’s 


In effort to stem civil war, US president asks Congress to fund equipment for opposition veterans

Times of IsraelPresident Barack Obama asked Congress Thursday for $500 million to train and arm vetted members of the Syrian opposition, as the US struggles for a way to stem a civil war that has also fueled the al-Qaeda inspired insurgency in neighboring Iraq.The military training program would deepen the Obama administration’s involvement in the more than four-year conflict between rebels and forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad. If approved by Congress, the program would supplement a covert train-and-assistance program run by US intelligence agencies.The Syria program is part of a broader $65.8 billion overseas operations request that the administration sent to Congress Thursday. The package includes $1 billion to help stabilize nations bordering Syria that are struggling with the effects of the civil war. It also formalizes a request for a previously announced $1 billion to strengthen the U.S. military presence in Central and Eastern Europe amid Russia’s threatening moves in Ukraine.The requests come as Obama faces fresh criticism of his restrained policies in Syria, which some White House opponents contend allowed the Sunni insurgency pressing through Iraq to gain strength. US officials increasingly see the instability in Syria and Iraq as a single challenge, with the border between the two countries increasingly blurred.Obama hinted earlier this year that he was seeking ways to boost assistance to moderate Syrian rebels who are struggling to make gains in their clashes with Assad’s forces.“In helping those who fight for the right of all Syrians to choose their own future, we also push back against the growing number of extremists who find safe haven in the chaos,” Obama told graduating cadets during a May 28 commencement address at the US Military Academy.Officials said the administration would coordinate with Congress and regional players on the specific types of training and assistance the US would provide the opposition. One potential option would be to base U.S. personnel in Jordan and conduct the training exercise there.The Senate Armed Services Committee has already approved a version of the sweeping defense policy bill authorizing the Defense Department to provide “equipment, supplies, training and defense services” to elements of the Syrian opposition that have been screened. The Senate could act on the bill before the August recess.In addition to the covert train-and-equip mission, the US has also provided nearly $287 million in nonlethal assistance to the moderate opposition.The military program would be supplemented by $1 billion in assistance to Syria’s neighbors — Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, and Iraq — to help them deal with an influx of refugees and the threat of extremists spilling over their borders.Iraq in particular is buckling amid lightening gains by the Sunni extremist group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which also has a stronghold inside Syria. The group has seized large swaths of Iraq and seeks to carve out a purist Islamic enclave across both sides of the Syria-Iraq border.The instability in Iraq comes as Obama continues to grapple with a crisis in Ukraine, with Russia widely believed to be backing pro-Moscow insurgents in eastern Ukrainian cities. Russia’s threats have stoked anxiety among US allies in the region, who are seeking deeper military assistance from the US.The overseas contingency requests includes a $1 billion program that would increase the US military presence in Central and Eastern Europe, boost training exercises with allies and allow the Pentagon to position equipment in the region. Obama announced the program during a trip to Poland earlier this month.The total overseas contingency package is about $21 billion less than the administration said it expected to request when Obama submitted his fiscal year 2015 budget to Congress earlier this year. Officials said the decrease is in part of reflection of Obama’s plans to draw down the US military presence in Afghanistan to about 10,000 forces by the beginning of next year.Obama is still waiting for the Afghan government to sign a security agreement with the US that would allow those forces to stay.In Congress, some lawmakers have looked at the overseas account as a source of cash as the Pentagon has been forced to cut its core budget. The House’s version of the sweeping defense policy bill for next year shifts some $600 million from the overseas account to spare the A-10 Warthog, the close air support aircraft that has a strong coalition of Republican and Democratic support on Capitol Hill.


After announcing, on Thursday, that it would seek $500 million to help “train and equip appropriately vetted elements of the moderate Syrian armed opposition,” the White House today posted the following Moderate Syrian Rebel Application Form:

The Lessons of World War I: The 100th Anniversary of the Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand

Global Research

June 28, 2014 is the 100th anniversary of the famous political assassination in Sarajevo, Serbia, that was the spark that started World War I, the war that was widely called “the war to end all wars”, because of the unendurable mutual mass slaughter of an entire generation of young European men (on all sides of the war).

On June 28, 1914, the heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, one of the wealthiest men in Austria, was murdered in Sarajevo.

The Victim

Besides his excess luxury wealth and his over-privileged position in life, there were lots of traits to despise. As an over-privileged Hapsburg family member, he joined the military at an early age and, what was typical for his elevated status in life, he was frequently and rapidly promoted in rank. He was given the rank of lieutenant at age fourteen (!), captain at twenty-two, colonel at twenty-seven and major general at age thirty-one.

The Archduke had no significant experience as a commanding officer in wartime. Europe had been in a prosperous peacetime economy for generations. A year before his assassination, Franz Ferdinand had been appointed Inspector General of the empire’s armed forces, and he was in Sarajevo discharging his duties while the empire’s occupying army was on maneuvers.

Archduke Franz Ferdinand with his wife Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg and their three children (from left), Prince Ernst von Hohenberg, Princess Sophie, and Maximilian, Duke of Hohenburg in 1910 (left, source Wikipedia)

The Archduke was also a compulsive trophy hunter. Today many would call him a “slob” hunter. In his own diaries, he documented over 300,000 game kills over his lifetime, 5000 of which were deer (100,000 of his hunting trophies were on exhibit at one of his castles).

For every oppressed Serb, the autocratic Archduke and his empire were just the latest cruel colonial powers that were occupying Serbia, oppressing and taxing the Slavic people and denying freedom for those unfortunate indigenous folks who had been living, toiling and suffering there for centuries.

The Assassin

Gavrilo Princip was the young Serbian who pulled the trigger on the Archduke and his wife Sophie (in the second assassination attempt of the day) killing them both with one shot each from his 9 mm pistol. The assassin was an impoverished, unemployed, tuberculosis-infected 19 year-old Serbian who grew up on a tiny farm in a rural part of the Balkan Peninsula that had been colonized and oppressed for centuries by the Turkish Ottoman Empire. Many of the Slavic people converted to Islam from their traditional Orthodox Christianity under the Ottomans, but the Princips had remained Christian.

Six of Princip’s siblings had died in infancy or early childhood, which certainly negatively impacted the family psychologically and very likely angered the young boy, who never had an opportunity to attend school until he was 13 years of age. His law and order father needed him to help work the tiny 4 acre subsistence farm.

Early in his teen years, Princip moved away from his family to better himself by enrolling in a school in Sarajevo – his first formal educational experience. He proved to be an apt student and, in his studies, learned about Serbia’s brutal colonial history under the Ottomans and then under the jackboot of the Austria-Hungarian empire. Likely angered by what he learned about the unjust suffering of his people, he joined a secret pan-Slavic liberation movement (the Black Hand) that led him to that fateful day, June 28, 1914.

Interestingly, before Princip was born (in 1894), his impoverished, downtrodden and exploited father had once been a member of a militia group that tried to overthrow the Ottomans, whose overlord 1 Percenters at the time routinely took the first fruits of every farmer’s harvest – thus ensuring the relative starvation, continued poverty and ill health of his family.

By the time 1914 rolled around, the Ottoman Empire was gone, taken over by the Austro-Hungarian Empire that was ruled by a dual monarchy, which was dominated by the elsrly Austrian Emperor Franz Josef, who had designated his nephew Franz Ferdinand to succeed him.

What Motivates Oppressed Minorities to Protest (or even kill)

So now there was a new and deeply hated colonizing oppressor-overlord that was also an enemy of ethnic Slavs and Serbians. Seeing no willingness on the part of the oppressors to grant their freedom through negotiations, Princip joined up with the Serbian nationalist movement that had been demanding liberation and self-rule.

And, as usual, when ruling class oppressors keep denying the legitimate international human rights to achieve liberty, equality and brotherhood (or death) (“Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite ou la Mort” of the French Revolution), they often are forced to increase the decibel level.

I am reminded of the non-violent actions of peace and justice activists like Duluth’s Catholic Workers who, after repeatedly being denied a place at the table and/or never having their serious and valid theological/political messages taken seriously by the churches or local leaders, finally feel obliged to throw blood on the doors of the Federal Building.

Or, like Duluth’s own Greg Boertge-Obed of the Transform Now Plowshares movement, getting arrested and then imprisoned for 35 years because of a nonviolent protest at the high security nuclear weapons factory — the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tenn (see John LaForge’s fine Duluth Reader article at:

Or like Catholic Workers and other peace groups at various points across the nation getting arrested (with media blackout preventing the actions from being publicized) for exercising their First Amendment rights by protesting at the CIA and Pentagon Killer Drone installations.

A Few of the Root Causes of the World War I

Figuring out the roots of the “Great War” is an enormously complex issue. Hundreds of books and thousands of scholarly papers have been written on the subject. Some of them have been written by militarists to obscure the issues, but one of the usual conclusions that all authors draw is the fact that many of the European Great Powers at the time had, over the decades, made alliances between one another that pledged that one would come to the defense of the other if either one was attacked. So Russia had pledged to militarily defend Serbia if Serbia was attacked. Likewise Germany would come to the aid of Austria if Austria was attacked by another nation. Both France and England had promised to come to the aid of Russia and Belgium if either nation was attacked. And so it went, in domino fashion

And so when a Serbian group assassinated the heir to the throne, Austria, to not appear to its critics to be “soft on crime” and to “save face”, felt that it had to do something to punish Serbia, even if the nation had nothing to do with the assassination.

After an investigation into the details of the assassination did not prove Serbian national guilt, Austria still decided to issue a 48 hour ultimatum (to be enforced by invasion if not accepted), that was actually designed to be rejected. Serbia actually accepted all of the terms of the ultimatum (save for one clause) and Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia. And the dominoes fell. And the rest is history.

There are, of course, a lot of research that has documented the blunders, the laziness, the outright idiocy, and the hubris of the ruling class aristocrats, captains of industry, kings, diplomats, generals and the ever-present uber-patriotic newspapers in every city looking to sell papers. Each of them had a role to play in the continued butchery that gutted an entire generation of young men who came home crazy, haunted and demented – as well as mentally, spiritually and/or physically disabled – because of the miscalculations of each nation’s incompetent and mis-guided leaders who couldn’t get themselves to use the words “retreat” or “we were wrong” or “mea culpa” or “please forgive me”.

Of course, the lessons from each and every international or civil war has been consistently unheeded by subsequent generations of our so-called national leaders in the military, industry or politics. They consistently ignore the will of the people who are the ones who have to sacrifice their young to the vicious Gods of War and Mammon.

This 2014 centennial year of the beginning of the “War to End All Wars” will offer many opportunities to explore the blunders of the national leaders that allowed the mutual slaughter to continue (including the Christmas Truce of 1914 where the generals on all sides chose to squelch the efforts of disillusioned soldiers on all sides of No-Man’s Land to end the war then and there. Heeding the wisdom of the millions of soldiers in the trenches would have saved the bodies, minds and souls of tens of millions of combatants.

The Wisdom of Clemenceau

After World War I, French Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau (serving in that position twice: from 1906 to 1909 and from 1917 to 1920) was quoted thusly: “War is too serious a matter to entrust to military men”. (The clever-with-words Clemenceau also famously said: “America is the only nation in history which miraculously has gone directly from barbarism to decadence without the usual interval of civilization”, “Military justice is to justice what military music is to music”, “War is a series of catastrophes that (sometimes) results in a victory”, and “It is easier to make war than make peace.”)

By prolonging the war beyond Christmas 1914, the generals on all sides of WWI continued to blunder badly, thinking – from the safety of their bunkers that were well out of reach of the enemy’s artillery shells – that they could still single-handedly and gloriously win the stalemated and unendurable (at least for the front line solders) trench war, perhaps dreaming about writing their memoirs after “victory” was achieved; saving face through self-deception, thus avoiding the cognitive dissonance they would otherwise have experienced; advancing in rank (and pay grade); and being awarded more of the cheap trinkets and ribbons that would be pinned on the breasts of their nicely laundered and perfectly pressed officer uniforms. No unforgettable stench of death came close to their nostrils.

And the military commander’s illusions would be reinforced by the co-opted war correspondents, most of whom weren’t actually seeing or smelling the carnage at the front. Most approved journalists dutifully covered up the blunders and the carnage, just as they do in today’s wars, although TV networks today hire retired generals to do the bidding of the Pentagon by prostituting themselves by endlessly reciting the military’s and White House’s talking points, all the while overlooking, covering up, or lying about the unwelcome real truths of war (which are always the “first casualties of war”).

NEO – America, Politics Like No Other



America, Politics Like No Other

… by  Gordon Duff, VT Editor   … with  New Eastern Outlook,  Moscow

For God and country - or maybe not

For God and country – or maybe not

While the world is watching elections, Ukraine, Egypt and Syria, the rightist sweep of the EU, few understand the potential for world disaster tied to the upcoming “midterm” elections in the United States.

No president will be elected but the ability to control American foreign policy and wield America’s military machine, entrenched in 150 nations around the world, is likely to increasingly be turned over to a cabal of extremist with no ties, whatsoever, to any real political movement.

America isn’t Europe, there is no “electorate” to influence, no party coalitions. There are some realities that have to be accepted in order to assess what are very real risks to world security. The great failure in Europe and elsewhere is the broad assumptions continually made about US politics, assumptions entirely invented by political analysts who know nothing about politics.

In over 50 years of American political activity, starting as a child delivering passing out leaflets for then Presidential candidate Adlai Stephenson (1954) through the murder of Robert Kennedy, whose candidacy I supported just prior to leaving for combat in Vietnam, I have lived with, watched and, quite frankly, suffered decades of shame and humiliation while watching America descend into something entirely unwholesome.

Later as a lobbyist for defense companies and eventually as a strategist in national elections, I deluded myself that somehow, men of common purpose and responsibility, answerable to a “higher ethic” could make a difference. “There ain’t no such thing in Washington.” As former US President Harry Truman once said, “If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.”


George would not like it here now

George would not like it here now

Hatred and distrust of government is a very powerful part of managing the American people. Myth number one is that both parties are the same. Nothing could be further from the truth.

One thing that has to be carefully watched is the origin of what is an utterly absurd myth, that the two parties are the same. Those of us who live here know this is insane.

Almost all American elections are rigged. At one point both parties did it, based on the power of trade unions and which party had formed alliances with drug dealers and gangsters that typically have and continue to control local government, courts and police.

Now this power is entirely in the hands of the Republican Party, a minority party that has continued to rule America despite losing even rigged elections.

Had Al Gore been elected president, there would have been no 9/11, no War on Terror, no invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. We can go further. America is and has been under virtual martial law since 2001 with a fully militarized police who operate outside any consideration for human rights or legal process.

America is in an engineered class war, a race war, assaulted at every level by vast criminal organizations tied to the oligarchy that is represented by the “Grand Old Party,” the Republicans, overtly the American “UKIP” but with a twist, absolutely nothing they support ever, in any way, advances the rights or welfare of any sector of the American populace.

Let’s take a second to look at what are the primary concerns for the “conservative” or “nativist” party that is, we are told,” the same as the “other one.”

  • The primary issue over the past decade has been restructuring the American political system through two methods, “gerrymandering,” reapportioning electoral districts to secure election for unpopular extremist candidates and to legalize unlimited bribery, done through highly controversial 5/4 decisions of the US Supreme Court, an organization dominated by ties to criminal elements.
  • The roots of the Republican Party as it exists today are pure Wall Street. However, in a nation with powerful divides including a 150 year old civil war that never really ended, large sectors of the electorate generally vote with no concern for legal, moral or ethical considerations. Hatred runs deep across much of America. Tens of millions of Americans are entranced with bizarre cult worship, a combination of “Ufology” (marrying Christianity to worship of ancient alien based civilizations) and biblical prophecy whose foundation is third rate scholarship or outright fabrication. Most consider “Satanic forces” or “fallen angels” as alien invaders.
  • I will keep this as short as possible. I have a background in what we call “the security services.” During that tenure I had been tasked with assisting in “quelling” threats to executive authority mounted by criminal elements attempting to influence Americans absolutely highest officials over issues of sexual blackmail allegedly tied to homosexual pedophilia. This was well over two decades ago. Since that time, I have received highest level confirmations that such organizations not only exist but are rooted in satanic ritual murder and extend across America’s political landscape into nearly every community. If only I were making this up. These organizations are subservient to a European “nobility,” of immense financial power. No one who has accessed or learned about a higher “platform” of world power has survived. Such a “platform” exists and is the only possible explanation for the global suicide we are currently witnessing.
  • On a “micro” scale, American politics defy any imaginable logic. The strong anti-Obama moves, reputedly to restore “constitutionality” or “individual freedom” are, invariably orchestrated by totalitarian groups. Thus, rather than seeking to end wars, drone killings, widespread torture or “imperialism,” those opposing Obama policies, often with the misguided aid of those seemingly supporters of democratic principles, in reality are aligned with something far more sinister than the buffoonish neo-Fascists sweeping Europe today. The real fault with the Obama administration, as seen by his most vocal distractors is his unwillingness to unleash thermonuclear war on Russia and China, on Iran and Syria, to depopulate Africa, to crush Islam and enforce a New World Order at the hands of an American “Taliban,” white, uneducated, violent, a degenerate subculture based on a bizarre “duality” of self-righteous race hatred, drug addiction and generations of inbreeding and the inherent mental deterioration and insanity that follows. Why would so many educated Americans find themselves so “uncomfortable” with their country?

Once upon a time in America

Once upon a time in America

How about the political basics? We have covered a desire to subjugate the world, creating a nightmare surpassing any Orwellian vision. How about the short term? The answers are easy. America’s “conservative party” has a number of causes at its root.

No one will begin to understand any of this, why a people would work against their own interests. Let us begin.

  • A key “plank” to the “Republican platform” is full and total financial deregulation. After the overturn of America’s electoral system in 2000 and the illegal appointment of a mental defective of the lowest order to the presidency, all government oversight of stock markets, banking and the financial industry passed to law firms employed by these institutions. By 2007 they had created $2,550,000,000,000 in derivative debt, a number 1000 times beyond the total of all movable collateral, gold, foodstuffs, factories, manufactured goods, even mineral or hydrocarbon resources, solar or geothermal energy, even the wind itself.
  • Another key “plank” has been diminished freedom of speech. Bush (41) made all dissent in the US illegal. Though you will never read this, when he visited a city, all political opposition, not just “threats,” were rounded up, driven to temporary camps outside town and held at gunpoint, their mobiles phones seized, no photographs or journalist allowed. They were held there, often adjacent to swamps or in deserted industrial sites, until Bush had left, held there without water or toilet facilities. They were held at gunpoint, often with armored personnel carriers and certainly with SWAT teams onsite with fully automatic and “heavy” weapons. This happened thousands of times and has never been reported. President Obama immediately put an end to this barbaric practice.
  • The Republican Party supports full censorship of all information on the dangers of GMO foods, supports criminalizing reporting on dangerous medicines and food additives and offers full protections to companies that murder corporate whistle blowers. During the Bush presidency, it had been impossible, not only to prosecute financial fraud or dangerous pollution threats but private security organizations have and do operate across the US as corporate “death squads,” enforcing “company policy” with car bombs, anthrax, staged “street crimes” or “accidents,” typically plane crashes and not always small airplanes.

"Balance of Power" exits now only as a myth

“Balance of Power” exists now only as a myth

At the root, the separation of the political parties, there is a clearly global aspect. Wealth and power into the hands of the few, unlimited wealth, unlimited power, utter and absolute unaccountability, ghoulish criminality, whether trucking tons of heroin into Russia or eradicating Christian communities in Syria, what is done globally is most certainly done in the United States, under the guise of “rule of law.”

When it is said that America has 2.5 million citizens in prisons they are leaving out another 2 million in “jails” and another 10 million on parole/probation regimens with diminished civil liberties. In reality, all Americans fear ending up in prison, all Americans fear the police and all Americans fear and hate their own government.

There are 200 million modern military assault weapons owned by Americans. 40 million Americans have some military training. These are the facts that never escape the overseers, in particular how to profit from these fears and to potentially put this armed mass to misguided use.

They think of little else, as those who have studied the layers of chaos/game theory psychological operations that constitute news and media within America. Then again, a single ember of truth could put it all ablaze. A new world of hope could very well arise from those ashes.

The ISIS Crisis


Uniforms and ammunition quickly discarded by legions of deserting Iraqi troops

ISIS  helps Iraq disintegrate

… by  Michael Shrimpton 


The break-up of Iraq was entirely predictable.  As I said at the time both Britain and America pulled out too early, without having sorted either Syria or Iran.

I have never supported Nouri al-Maliki.  He has always been far too close to Iran and he has mis-governed Iraq.  He is Shia, looks out for Shia interests and has caused a complete collapse of Sunni confidence in the government.

I am not speaking with the benefit of hindsight.  I said in 2003 that the pre-coup constitution should be restored, and the most legitimate prince, i.e. the prince closest in the line of succession to King Faisal II, restored to the throne.

Faisal of course was brutally murdered, on German orders (it was a German-sponsored coup) in 1958.  Whilst a Sunni, King Faisal was able to command loyalty from both Shias and Kurds.  He was a focal point of national unity and during his reign Iraq was largely peaceful and prosperous.

I was struck by the association in the comments on last week’s article of monarchy and autocracy.  A true monarch is as much bound by the law as an elected president.  That was set out as long ago as the 13th century by England’s greatest constitutional scholar, Bracton.

As I explain in Spyhunter, the American colonies were mis-governed by French assets in Westminster, trying to break up the British Empire, not nice old King George, who barely knew what His idiot government were up to.

Iraqis complain about the Allied invasion in 2003, in response to 9/11, but people forget that they enjoyed stable, democratic government in the 1950s, and that many Iraqis supported the brutal murders of their king and members of his family, including the women.

The 1958 coup of course paved the way, eventually, for Saddam Hussein, and decades of war and bloodshed. Iraqis may whine about what has happened to their country but before supporting al Qaeda’s attack on New York, Iraq launched two regional wars, against Iran and Kuwait. Their behaviour in both wars was brutal.


The Naqshbandi Army


Maybe what we really need is more Decentralized Intelligence

It was an article of faith at CIA after 9/11 that secular Ba’athists and al Qaeda terrorists could not work together. There were two flaws with this argument, apart from the fact that it was bollocks.

The first is that the Ba’ath Party had a history of working with Islamists, the 1958 coup being a prime example. Saddam reached out to Islamic nutters after his defeat in the Gulf War, going so far as to add the Takbir to the national flag.

As I expose in Spyhunter (many thanks by the way to ‘Boss One’ for his gracious comments about the book in response to last week’s column!) bin Laden first ‘met’ Saddam (they were proximity talks) in about 1989. Bin Laden next visited Baghdad in 1998, staying at the al-Rashid Hotel, although there may have been other visits.

Dr Hamid al-Bayati, in his very important book, published in response to 9/11, The Terrorism Game, lists a series of meetings between senior Mukhabarat officers and al Qaeda.  Only 500 copies were ever printed, but don’t let the lack of sales success fool you. It was too important a book for the mainstream media to review.

The second flaw in DDI’s post 9/11 analysis was the failure to appreciate that terrorism is a state-sponsored phenomenon. So are coups, successful ones at any rate (any idiot, even Vince Cable, can stage a failed coup).  Since al Qaeda and the Ba’ath Party were both sponsored by the German DVD it stood to reason that they could work together.

As I argue in Spyhunter, bin Laden was not actually a fundamentalist – he was too intelligent. Most religious nutters are not that bright (when did you last meet a highly intelligent Methodist?).

The jihadi outfit was strictly for the videos.  When he had lunch with a friend of mine (obviously in INTELCOM) in early 2005 the guy was wearing a business suit and had lost the beard. (That lunch became famous, as I tipped off NSA to the approximate location, detailed the perimeter defense arrangements, noted by my very observant friend, and you guys got some nice overheads of his safe house – the Obama Administration have lied through their teeth about the death of bin Laden).

We have seen further proof in the last 14 days of the ability of jihadists and Ba’athists to work together on the ground, with the basically Ba’athist Naqshbandi Army working in close alliance with Isis. Those infamous executions of captured Iraqi soldiers seem to have been carried out by Ba’athists.

Don’t get too carried away by the Islamist scarves and jihadi outfits. A Democrat can wear a nice suit, but it doesn’t make him a gentleman, unless he’s from the South.


Chalabi – the Engergizer Bunny hustler is stil making deals

There is no way out of this mess which does not involve airstrikes and boots on the ground. We can’t go back in because we’ve slashed the size of our army, stupidly and short-sightedly, so it looks like its down to you guys, again.  I’m not happy about it – I think the US has been asked to do too much in the War on Terror – but there is nobody else.

The Russians are absorbed by the crisis in the Ukraine, the Europeans are backing Isis, because Germany wants to reverse the sensible Sykes-Picot Agreement and break up Iraq, and we have a weak government and way too small armed forces.

The obvious political leader of Iraq, as he has been since the mid-1990s, is Ahmed Chalabi. The monarchy should still be restored, ideally with the pre-1958 constitution, although that is unlikely to happen.

The post-2003 constitution has collapsed amidst civil war, and there will have to be greater autonomy for the Kurds at least. It won’t be a lasting constitutional settlement, but until the Administration grasp that monarchy works, there is no hope of a stable constitution for Iraq.

The best that can be hoped for are sticking plaster solutions that can hold things together between crises. It’s rather odd that the only stable Muslim countries in the Middle East are monarchies and all the republics are run by whackos, but Washington wants more republics!

Germany’s covert desire to control Iraq, which goes back to the break-up of the Ottoman Empire, will ensure that Iraqis continue to suffer. There will never be peace in the Middle East until we sort out the DVD, a close ally of Iran and the largest sponsor of terrorism in the Middle East.

The recent moves of ISIS bear all the hallmarks of DVD strategic planning, indeed the Germans would probably have been planning this move at the same time as their allies in London, Washington and the media were pushing for the Allies to abandon Iraq and expose Baghdad.

The DVD don’t just give up and go away. If you throw over a DVD asset like Saddam they usually have a plan B. The move on Baghdad also takes the heat of Assad, a German ally.

MH 370

Last week saw a very silly program, no offense intended, on BBC2’s Horizon program.  Pushing the Peking/Kuala Lumpur line that MH 370 magically evaded Malaysian and Vietnamese radar and flew down to the southern Indian Ocean, it featured a lot of unconvincing comment from Inmarsat.

This is the British satellite company that discovered 7 days after the plane ‘went missing’ that the Earth is round, although that’s not quite how they put it.

The programme was a piece of pure propaganda. It dared not mention the shoot-down theory, let alone interview me, although I am the only commentator anywhere in the world to have stated that the airliner was shot down. Anyone making a programme about MH 370 in good faith would surely at least want to talk to me.

The program-makers lied to the viewing public, by seeking to create the impression that MH 370 took off with a full fuel load, by giving the maximum range figure. Very long range commercial planes don’t carry a full fuel load on medium range flights.

The BBC however do not want people finding out that the Chinese shot down MH 370. They probably know the truth, at a high level of the Corporation, and banned any approach to me. The ‘Beeb’ reports to the Cabinet Office, albeit via backchannels (there is a BBC Trust, appointments to which are effectively in the gift of the Cabinet Office), and the Cabinet Office knows the truth. It controls the intelligence services, and GCHQ have the satellite piccies of the shoot-down. You would be amazed at how well missile exhaust shows up on infra-red on a dark night.

The program was a disgrace, and a further insult to the long-suffering families of the murdered passengers. They will continue to be given the run-around. Because the plane was shot down by China they will face a wall of official denial for decades to come. The  Titanic cover-up is now into its second century. Bureaucrats are basically snivelling cowards, no offense intended.

There is almost no limit to their cowardice and willingness to lie. It doesn’t matter whether it’s London or Washington, Peking or Kuala Lumpur. There is not even a remote possibility of any official, anywhere, summoning the moral courage to tell the truth about Flight MH 370.

series 3, episode 8, airdate June 18th 2014, dir. Tim Firth

This is not a classic, but it will be. I am sorry that most readers will not be able to see it on TV, although it should be downloadable from Sky. Starring that fine actress Sylvia Sims and a small but strong supporting cast, led by Cara Delevinge, this short television play is both funny and intensely moving.

The plot is realistic. The play is set first in wartime Whitby, the delightful North-East fishing port. Sylvia Sims’s character has just spent the first night of her honeymoon with her new husband, a Flight Lieutenant in the RAF. We know he is about to rejoin his squadron, but we don’t know what type of kite he is flying, or what sort of danger he is about to face.

The play then moves forward to the present day.  Sylvia’s character is now a slightly dotty great-grandmother.  She is being ‘great-granny-sitted’ by her charming young great granddaughter, whose husband is serving with the RAF in Afghanistan.  She collapses, fearing the worst, when a nice lady Flight Lieutenant calls at her great-gran’s house.  Her grief is all too real and the Flight Lieutenant, whose sad job it is to notify relatives that their loved ones have gone, realises that she has a relation in the forces.

She has come with bittersweet news for great-gran however.  Her much-loved husband’s body has been recovered, in Iceland, after 69 years.  The pair fly to Reykjavik.  As the nice Fight-Lieutenant explains her husband’s Short Sunderland flying-boat had crashed on a glacier.

The intense fire melted the ice, but it swiftly refroze, entombing her crew in the glacier and preserving their bodies.  There is then a deeply moving scene as Slyvia Sims’s character is re-united, briefly, with her long-dead husband, who had left her with child on their honeymoon.

Great-gran and great granddaughter are brought together by the shared experience of having a loved one go in harm’s way.  No veteran or family member of a veteran could fail to be moved by this superb program.  It perfectly illustrates the price paid not just by those who serve, but by those who are left behind.

It ought to be shown on American TV, primetime, and seen by every clown of a military and political leader who wants to throw away lives in the military by not acting on good intelligence advice.

Helping America Die “Well Informed”

By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor with supporting material

The materials below were selected from a huge archive I have been given, some public, some less so, to publish.  In general, minimally, it exposes the US government as dangerous, incompetent and deceitful in its handling of both nuclear materials and our national defense.

In this case, we enter the area where former New Mexico governor, Bill Richardson, former head of the Department of Energy, is now found to have been the subject of an FBI investigation into trading nuclear material with North Korea and the Mossad.  My read on this is that the FBI considered the North Koreans and the Mossad business partners in peddling nuclear material to other nations with Department of Energy chief, Bill Richardson, their “mole,” helping create a planet racing toward doomsday.

We know the Department of Energy to be infected from end to end with foreign agents and those willing to supply terrorists with weapons grade nuclear material.  If only I were making this up.  It isn’t just that this is a fact, it is a well known fact in Washington and the FBI had been “chomping at the bit” to go after Richardson and others at the DOE until they were stopped by the Bush 43 regime.

Today, I watch so many who think they are “one of us” working tirelessly to bring this same gang back.  Look at the childish fiasco, the clowns at the Bundy ranch.  Benghazi is even worse, a story I had solved in 48 hours and, as we can prove inexorably, had it right.  As soon as I found the CIA/Mossad front, PJ Media, funding Terry Jones, I was able to trace the attack, those involved and those who funded it.  Those who are demanding blood, blaming the Obama administration, planned and executed the Benghazi attack.

Arrest them, we have enough names to empty half the bathhouses in DC of GOP “nancyboys.”

Notes:  This is why FBI counter intelligence had former DOE boss and governor of  New Mexico Bill Richardson under surveillance from 1996 up to 2004.. N.N.P operations involving Mossad and North Korea. Remember the private trips that he made to North Korea during the Bush 43 days and the private trips to Israel.?????
This report focuses on DOE’s plutonium management program during the Clinton Presidential era.
———————- Under Bill Richardson’s watch at DOE………………
An apathetic approach towards reducing the inherent dangers of plutonium stored in unsafe and highly unstable forms;
Incompetence bordering on negligence in caring for more than 12,000 plutonium pits;

  • Secretly developing new capabilities for plutonium pit production while touting dual-use plutonium processing facilities as “nonproliferation missions;”

While DOE has continued to declassify information and more information is available than ever, this is not the true mark of openness. Openness and honesty is characterized by up-front revelations about the real hazards, uncertainties, and economics of new projects; and not by facades of unwarranted optimism and a flippant disregard for the public trust.

When people are engaged in a process like Environmental Impact Statements that lead to a Record of Decision signed by top-level officials, they have an expectation that a small group of bureaucrats will discard the decision at the earliest convenience. Nowhere is this more true than in the plutonium program, where DOE has made numerous claims during the public debate that are contradicted by internal memos, obscure reports, and even public documents available on various Departmental Internet sites.

One fact that has become increasingly clear is that the plutonium hazard has more depth and breadth. Not only is plutonium useable in nuclear weapons at the scale of kilograms and acutely toxic at the scale of milligrams, it is also has the most complex chemistry in the Periodic Table of the Elements DOE officials who have told the public countless times that alpha radiation can be blocked by a piece of paper have failed to inform people that alpha radiation from the decay of plutonium 239 causes, over the course of decades to centuries, damage to plutonium metal, any metal in contact or near contact with plutonium, and adverse chemical reactions with our most common elements, oxygen and hydrogen. All these things also make keeping track of plutonium much more difficult.

If the alpha particles from the decay of plutonium 239 can damage the densest metal on earth, the impacts of alpha radiation from plutonium ingested or inhaled in the human body is obviously detrimental. Plutonium is often said to be “harmless” if ingested as a metal, but this is an obvious fallacy since it turns out that plutonium metal has a microscopic layer of plutonium oxide present at all times. The chemical reactions with common materials that worry metallurgists and weapons designers are certainly a concern inside the human body.

Plutonium is most hazardous in an oxide powder form, with inhalation of only 20 milligrams enough to kill someone quickly and 30 to 60 micrograms easily enough to greatly raise the risk of cancer. Yet, DOE is planning to truck 3 metric tonnes of plutonium oxide from Rocky Flats to Savannah River Site this year in its politically motivated rush to close Rocky Flats as soon as possible.

Although the revelations about plutonium complexity has forced DOE to finally establish a long term plutonium storage standard, it is pursuing projects at odds with its own standards. The best example is DOE’s zealous pursuit of a plutonium MOX fuel factory that utilizes surplus weapon-grade plutonium found in plutonium pits.

To make this fuel requires nitric acid based plutonium processing that has generated tremendous radioactive waste problems in the past, a process that greatly increases the likelihood of explosions, spills, and accidental criticality. Yet, the plutonium storage standard requires plutonium oxide to be heated to temperatures that make nitric acid processing even more dangerous. (Page 1.7). Instead of recognizing that plutonium fuel production from weapons plutonium is incompatible with its own storage standard, DOE seems intent on neglecting its commitment to safe storage in favor of its devotion to plutonium fuel.

In the past five years, DOE has reneged on nearly every one of its plutonium management decisions (see sidebar on Page iii) that did not involve spreading the liability at Rocky Flats around the country as quickly as possible or pursuing the dream of stuffing aging nuclear reactors one-third full of plutonium fuel. While underfunding the most fundamental mission-safe and secure storage-it has spent millions of dollars on unnecessary projects like gallium removal experiments and an irrelevant MOX fuel test in Canada.

DOE has not released updated plutonium inventory figures in five years and has even silently carved away bits and pieces of the declared surplus:

—In November 1999, DOE removed 3.8 (MT) of surplus plutonium found in unirradiated nuclear fuel in Idaho which forced the planning team for the plutonium immobilization plant at SRS to issue its third design; and another 0.6 to 0.8 MT of unirradiated nuclear fuel at Hanford was removed for “possible programmatic use.”

—In 1998 an undisclosed number of surplus plutonium pits were recategorized as “national security assets;”

—In 1998 the nuclear weapons program at Los Alamos received “permission from the politicians” to divert some “nickel-sized” pieces of plutonium from its pit disassembly and conversion demonstration project for plutonium aging studies in support of nuclear weapons stockpile stewardship;

DOE matched this failure to be up-front with its numbers with an aversion to being up-front about the hazards of its proposals. During the Surplus Plutonium Disposition Environmental Impact Statement process, DOE attempted to hide the fact that plutonium pit disassembly and conversion involved tritium and beryllium processing that would have meant a 10,000 fold increase in radioactive air pollutants at Pantex and will mean that SRS will become a certifiable beryllium site.

In 1997 DOE canceled its effort to repackage 12,000 plutonium pits in “state-of-the-art” AT-400A shipping and storage containers at Pantex. After spending $50 million on research and development, the plug was pulled after a mere 20 plutonium pits were repackaged.
In December 1997 DOE abandoned its efforts to upgrade Building 12-66 at Pantex for surplus plutonium pit storage after completing the preconceptual design work.
In 1999 DOE abruptly canceled construction of a new plutonium storage and stabilization facility at Savannah River Site after spending $70 million on its design and nearly completing excavation work. Two years later, DOE still does not have a long- term storage plan for non-pit plutonium at SRS, but still plans to truck about 9 metric tonnes from Rocky Flats to SRS.
In fiscal year 2000 DOE quietly stopped funding the plutonium pit reuse project at Pantex, a program designed to avoid costly and environmentally damaging plutonium pit fabrication.
In 1997 DOE ceased plutonium stabilization efforts at Los Alamos in favor of pursuing the ARIES project, which has turned out to be an essential pre-cursor to plutonium pit production.
In 1999 DOE began shipping plutonium residues called “sands, slags, and crucibles” from Rocky Flats to SRS, then abruptly quit and decided to send the material to WIPP.

Higher on the list was DOE’s selection of a nitric-acid based plutonium conversion process for making Mixed Oxide (MOX) plutonium fuel in 1997. Unfortunately, DOE did not inform the public of its decision until late in 1999 and then grossly underestimated the impacts of the operations.

But the most egregious example of dishonesty was the public presentation of plutonium disposition facilities as nonproliferation missions while DOE officials, at the urging of the Pentagon and Congress, secretly crafted a parallel plan to produce new plutonium warheads. The possibility of SRS dismantling plutonium pits for a few years and then putting new ones together is very real.

The list includes internal stonewalling, drastic funding cuts on fundamental programs, constant redesign and “rebaselining,” and a plethora of contradictions:

  • In spite of repeated requests, the National Laboratories have not provided Pantex with a list of plutonium pits called “National Security Assets” in nearly two years. The labs’ inabilities to provide consistent storage criteria has contributed to the unease about plutonium pit conditions.
  • After five years of inventory and the introduction of new technologies, DOE still cannot say whether or not it still has 2.8 metric tonnes of unaccounted-for plutonium;
  • While the Office of Fissile Materials Disposition tells the country that it must accept the plutonium fuel option because Russia will not accept the U.S. burying its weapons-grade plutonium, the Office of Environmental Management keeps proposing to bury more plutonium residues containing weapon-grade plutonium in the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in New Mexico
  • During five years of Environmental Impact Statements, DOE never informed the public that declassification of pits included declassifying the isotopic composition. One month after the January 2000 Record of Decision to build a PDCF at SRS was signed, the “blending” of plutonium oxides from two or more pit types was required to declassify the isotopic composition of the powder, adding yet another complication to an already confusing program.
  • The plutonium pit program continues to languish from a lack of funding, as DOE refuses to honor its commitments to repackage the pits at a rate of 200 per month, insure that “dirty” pits are cleaned prior to storage, procure thousands of new containers for its “national security assets,” decide on a facility storage plan, and design a shipping container.

1. There must be a renewed attitude towards increased openness and honesty in the U.S. nuclear weapons complex and a reversal of the current trend against openness.

2. DOE must publish its latest inventories of plutonium, uranium, and other special nuclear materials and disclose any information suggesting that diversion of materials has occurred. BREDL is making the following estimates based on DOE’s figures in various reports, showing the sheer volume of plutonium “items,” requiring individual handling at some point in time:

Plutonium Inventory


Plutonium Form

# Items

Plutonium Content, MT


Non-Pit Plutonium


43,000 Liters 0.5










Unirradiated Fuel




Plutonium Pits



Irradiated Fuel




99.8 to 100.0


3. Insure that DOE lives up to its promises and commitments made in Environmental Impact Statements and in implementation Plans to the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board.

4. Make safe and secure storage of plutonium the number one priority in the weapons complex.

5. Cease all efforts to pursue full-scale plutonium pit production and a plutonium fuel economy and focus on reducing the plutonium hazard.

6. The inherent chemical instability of plutonium should be an added incentive to make drastic cuts in the nuclear weapons arsenal.

Nuclear Roundtable: America’s Nuclear Arsenal


Dang it!

Dang it!

Nuclear Weapons Experts Discuss What the Public Never Hears

By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

Below are responses to questions and statements made in a roundtable.  These are in answer to a US Navy nuclear weapons officer’s comments and questions.  Answers are provided by a VT team member. 

This will be a fairly unique document in that it can give the public a first look ever at real issues involving nuclear weapons, America’s nuclear arsenal and how even our own military is lied to and purposefully misinformed on technical issues tied to the nuclear weapons they themselves handle every day.

We at VT are, not only the last “real” intelligence professionals around, Bush 43 saw to that, we also have the only people who know how to repair and maintain nuclear weapons.  We aren’t kidding.  As nothing can be written down, our current nuclear arsenal is maintained and overseen by people who are simply unqualified.  We are all at risk because of this.  For those of you who understand how important what we are doing is and how this may well prevent us from blowing ourselves up, add what you can in the comment section.

If we are all going to die someday at the hands of state sponsored false flag nuclear terrorism like the incident that nearly took out the London Olympics, we might as well know more about these things.

The U.S. is a collapsing empire that’s financially broke, maybe all PANTEX does now is polish the fucking things with Armor All and that’s about all they can afford to do. (((This is the 24 dollar question.)))

Any stories that bolster the concept of U.S. or ISRAELI NUCLEAR SUPERIORITY however don’t pass any smell test.  Something is very wrong with those. ((Correct))))

The issue we are getting is that since Rocky Flats went down, we aren’t producing enough pits to match the breakdown of plutonium. (((Correct)))

Between you me and the fencepost, the 12 month rotation interval for nuclear weapons must be tied to a master refurbishment and fleet restocking plan that was put in place because of necessity not because they arbitrarily liked to expose the weapons in open air loading areas like Seal Beach, CA. and Indian Point in Washington State, to possible terror attack during the on-load and offload episodes. ((Correct)))

YES!!! That is the key Issue. Old Pits go bad. Otherwise why would you write off a Pit that just cost you over 5 million dollars each to make after only 35 years of service. Especially if it is supposed to be good as gold for over 100 years.

Why do you turn them into Mox fuel after 35 years of age? That is because they have degraded down to less than 84 % pure PU-239. That is IAEA international law. No PU-239 can be used as mox fuel unless it has degraded down to less than 84% purity. Weapons grade Fuel is 93 plus % pure PU-239.

So why would you scrap 3000 plus old pits that cost over 5 million dollars each if they are good for 100′s of years. It would be much cheaper and easier to just get out the Armor-All and just shine them back up put in new parts and reset the odometer back to zero. Now Jay Leno has a brand new 57 Chevy to play with. Get the point.

The NSSA and the DOE outright tell you in their public information that the old pits are recycled into 84% pure MOX fuel. They even tell you how they do it. You can’t grind up a 97% pure PU-239 pits and mix that stuff with PU from another source. The fission rates are too far apart for the combined fuel to be stable enough to be used in a Mox fuel reactor.

It will literally move around in the fuel rod just like in a lava lamp and at some point BANG. This is what happened at Dimona and in Japan. They all were using very unstable surplus weapons grade PU-239 in there reactors as mox fuel in order to increase new PU-239 production. This is what fast breeder reactors are for. Making new weapons grade PU-239 fuel very fast.

If we only need 3000 pits plus 10% spares then why did we make over 10,000 plus new pits between 1944 and 1994? Why not recycle the ones you have if PU-239 is good as Gold? Do we scrape Gold coins after 35 years and turn them into jewelry or do we recycle the metal and make new coins?

The same scenario applies to PU production. If it is good as Gold for over 100 years then why not recycle the PU metal. That is because it deteriorates with age. The only question is how fast does it go bad and if it does not go bad then why are we retiring them after 35 years and scrapping them. Is the demand for Mox fuel that great? Why?

If PANTEX refurbishment production has halted, this means the entire U.S. nuclear arsenal will be utterly non-viable if NEW PRODUCTION is not taking place anywhere, and Duff may in fact be correct about that.(((YES)))

But properly maintained nuclear warheads in human life spans, (((have nearly indefinite life)))) (((((wrong))))

(((if maintained with NEW ELECTRONICS REGULARLY RETROFITTED INTO THE WEAPON at nominal intervals not to exceed 5 years or so in time for the aforementioned reasons due to gamma ray degradation of the arming,  triggering and timing circuits.))) (YES)

(((Note the PU-239 is mixed with up to 5 % Gallium. Gallium deteriorates very rapidly under neutron and Gamma ray radiation. “This is a very big weapons engineering secret.” Look it up. Just ask any nuclear physicist about Gallium irradiation problems in Nukes.)))

MOX fuel increases the overall operational output power of a reactor in thermal energy, while radically decreasing the safety margins of operating plants with this fuel. (((YES))) Japan and Dimona as examples….

If there is a shortage of warheads, the only logical reason is that the warheads are being reprocessed into nuclear fuel for reactors. ((( Why would you scrap a working Pit if it didn’t have a problem. They cost lots of money to make)))

In any case, nuclear weapons go to PANTEX or had been going to PANTEX in Amarillo Texas for decades, for refurbishment to keep them viable and reliable as the circuitry does deteriorate over time due to gamma radiation exposure changing the semiconductor substrate’s conduction characteristics significantly beyond 12 months exposure in the warhead itself. (YES) (((Semiconductors are made of silicone and Gallium. Gallium is added to the Pit.)))

If PANTEX refurbishment production has halted, this means the entire U.S. nuclear arsenal will be utterly non-viable if NEW PRODUCTION is not taking place anywhere, and Duff may in fact be correct about that. (YES)

But properly maintained nuclear warheads in human life spans, have nearly indefinite life ((((NO NO NO )))

If maintained with NEW ELECTRONICS REGULARLY RETROFITTED INTO THE WEAPON at nominal intervals not to exceed 5 years or so in time for the aforementioned reasons due to gamma ray degradation of the arming,  triggering and timing circuits. ((Correct)))

The 5 year life time is correct only for the electronics. He is not discussing the Explosives or the Boost gas problems or the corrosion problems or the plastic materials problems or the Helium gas build up problems or the PU-24/241 problems etc. He only talks about the electronic problems. This is why vacuum tubes are still used in nukes they don’t go bad due to radiation like transistors and computer chips do. But the high voltage charging capacitors in the firing circuits and the coax cables do go bad.

Electrolytic failure in the charging capacitors is a major concern. They will test OK but when put under actual firing load they explode. Old ones will actually begin to leak or bulge first. The electrolytic also dries out very rapidly. The replacement capacitors are not even made in the USA anymore they are imported from “ASIA” IE Japan Korea and China. Only the Krytrons are still made in the US.

The High Explosives are also very sensitive to neutron radiation. It dries them out very rapidly. Hydrates in the HE love to absorb neutrons this makes them very unstable after time. You and I both know how dangerous old ordnance is to handle. How many safety classes and lectures did we all have to take on that one alone.

The moral of the story is if it ain’t broke then why are you trying to fix it. If the PU does not “stink”  or go bad then why are we scraping it only after 35 years. Why not just recycle the old PU into a new pit so we can save a lot of money and time. Why can’t you just melt it down and make a new pit from the old pit. We still have the molds that the original pit was made from or do we?????????

How dose 97 % pure weapons grade PU-239 become 84% pure reactor grad PU-239 in less than 35 years if it is supposed to be stable and good for decades?????? Where did the 12 plus % of contamination called “pit poisons” in weapons designer terms come from.
At .5% PU-240/241 buildup per year; that would be equal to about 25 years???? Get the point.

Thanks G. You need to start a VT Chat room on the subject. It might just bring in a lot of new info that has previously been kept quiet…..

PS. please tell everybody to drop all of the negative connotations about other people. It is very un professional to act that way and it only distracts from the real issues. That is, how well is our nuclear defense system holding up and do we need to do something about it before it is too late. Are we being over run by a 5th column within our own government or are they just misguided Tree Huggers… IE…. “Hippies in power”………
