Flabbergasted!!

 

Since day one…….. (and I mean before being elected as the Republican candidate)……… I was sure Trump would be the next president. I even bet $1000 dollars at seven to one in the UK as  I was so sure (my daughter loved her new furniture from that one).

I am very much a pro kinda Trump person……. but this last couple of weeks has seen some very bad mistakes…… and worse still is where those mistakes will lead and the inevitability of it all.

Trump announces withdrawal from agreement with Iran Here

The first thing that has to occur to any reasonable individual is that this particular agreement took a very long time to negotiate……. in addition the countries that surround the middle East were happy because at last there was something positive coming out of a very difficult region.

Another point is that the Atomic UN watchdog deputy Tero Varjoranta resigns immediately Here and, as it was right after the Trump announcement, it can be logically inferred that he was not happy about the US decision.

Particularly as Iran was complying with all aspects of the agreement.

The top general in the U.S. military (Gen. Joseph Dunford) said Tuesday that Iran is complying with a landmark nuclear deal and that the agreement has achieved its intended result of curbing Iran’s nuclear program.  Here

So what is left? Well every other country in the world is going to say an agreement by the US is not worth the paper it is written on no matter who signs it!

If you have compliance by all parties and one party decides he is getting a lousy deal, it is neither morally sound or legally legitimate to cancel or renege on the agreement.

It is actually a breach of contract and a very poor judgement when you would wish others to take you at your word.

Trump moves the embassy to Jerusalem. Here

This has to be the mother of all errors. Currently Israel has an agreement of sorts thrashed out by the European courts.

The international community considers the establishment of Israeli settlements in the Israeli-occupied territories illegal under international law, because the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949 prohibits countries from moving population into territories occupied in a war.[1][2][3][4][5] Israel maintains that they are consistent with international law[6] because it does not agree that the Fourth Geneva Convention applies to the territories occupied in the 1967 Six-Day War.[7] The United Nations Security Council, the United Nations General Assembly, the International Committee of the Red Cross, the International Court of Justice and the High Contracting Parties to the Convention have all affirmed that the Fourth Geneva Convention does apply.[8][9]

Numerous UN resolutions have stated that the building and existence of Israeli settlements in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights are a violation of international law, including UN Security Council resolutions in 1979, 1980,[10][11][12] and 2016.[13][14] UN Security Council Resolution 446 refers to the Fourth Geneva Convention as the applicable international legal instrument, and calls upon Israel to desist from transferring its own population into the territories or changing their demographic makeup. The reconvened Conference of the High Contracting Parties to the Geneva Conventions has declared the settlements illegal[15] as has the primary judicial organ of the UN, the International Court of Justice[16] and the International Committee of the Red Cross.

The position of successive Israeli governments is that all authorized settlements are entirely legal and consistent with international law,[17] despite Israel’s armistice agreements all being with High Contracting Parties.[18] In practice, Israel does not accept that the Fourth Geneva Convention applies de jure, but has stated that on humanitarian issues it will govern itself de facto by its provisions, without specifying which these are.[19][20] The majority of legal scholars hold the settlements to violate international law, while others have offered dissenting views supporting the Israeli position. Here

In addition Luis Moreno Ocampo who was the international prosecutor for the ICC says Israel are guilty of war crimes…… Here

These two together are damning indictments of the way Israelis treat their Palestinian neighbors….. but there is much, so much more they are doing.

So to move the US embassy to Jerusalem by implication gives a positive lift to Israelis unfairly and unreasonably by President Trump!

May 21st 2018

Trump introduces conditions for a new agreement with Iran to avoid sanctions. Here

So what we see is that not only are the USA defaulting on their agreement they want to introduce further agreements that for Iran take away the only source of defense they actually have.

The Iranians have already replied to the USA on what their stance is…….. Here

‘Who are you?’ Iran hits back at US demands

President Rouhani rejects US demands while Iran’s foreign minister dismisses Pompeo’s conditions as ‘sham’ diplomacy.

The fact is that 12 new conditions have been required from the US with a couple of notables…….

The tough conditions in the US administration’s so-called Plan B on Iran included Tehran withdrawing all its forces from Syria, halting uranium enrichment and nuclear-capable missiles, as well as ending support for a range of groups in the Middle East, such as Hezbollah and Hamas.

Which seems to have all the hallmarks of not wanting an agreement but regime change through collapse of their society or war……….

More sanctions will simply make Iranians closer to China nad Russia and drive up the price of oil in the West.

But just where is it all going?

My own view is very dismal I am afraid. I believe that Trump is doing the will of the Jews in general……. not just those in Israel, but, more importantly the banks, big businesses,the media and all media houses.

In doing so there are several fronts I see as being fought on behalf of Israel……

1st …………General public dissent of anyone who says ANYTHING against Israel…. and them then being labelled and bullied until they give in. The current issue of the British Labour Party who are being accused of anti-antisemitism because some of their members disagree with the Jews for many reasons.

2nd……….. The silence of the world while Israel commits genocide against Palestinians. The way that Israel has now surrounded the whole of the inhabitants of Palestine, depriving them of basic necessities, and inhumane treatment  when crossing borders that they have no choice to use.

I personally find it disgusting that they are just the same as SS guards…. they just have different uniforms on…otherwise so little separates them.

3rd The breach of agreement with the Iranians I believe to be abysmal.The US actually breached other agreements, one being a 1972 agreement to end the cold war…… See

EXCLUSIVE FULL UNEDITED Interview of Putin with NBC’s Megan Kelly

with the Russian Premier speaks volumes. The Russians have been shafted by the dishonorable USA.

How can ANY country accept the US version of anything after all Saddam, and Qaddafi did and they are both pushing up roses.

But in each case the bottom line is an advantage of Israel over its adversaries and leaves nothing in their way and the genocide escalates as shown a week ago when 52 demonstrators murdered and a massive 2500 wounded…all to lower limbs……..

What I fear most as a non believer who is made painfully obvious on a regular basis is that we are growing very close to MAKING prophesy come true.

I do not believe in God….. but I do read about many religions and this particular event comes awfully close to what has been written.

I am not gonna start quoting scriptures…… Easy to look up…… but an important point is that the battle sides are being drawn just as the way it has been said.

Currently you have the EU condemning the treatment of Iran and the Palestinians….. with the EU finding ways to assist Iran so it stays in the nuclear agreement and condemning the Israelis slaughter of innocents. This is a huge point if you should want support.

It means that the iron grip is slowly being prized apart and very soon into the future the US will tumble, starting with its finances.

As of today there is very limited support from any European country toward the US. As I see it they stand alone with Israel. Turkey is drumming up support from all Arab countries….. and that would not be good for Israel as they are surrounded by them.

Sadly I have to conclude that all we are seeing is the troops going to the battle field for the Final battle….. Not what I want to admit…… but its FACT!

———————————————————————————————————————————-

Update: 23/5/2018

Today the Iranians stepped up their game as if there was no problem. They are playing the only card they have like its an alternative.

Supreme leader: Europe must follow demands or deal’s off

Brilliant……

The European countries cannot move forward if there is the threat of a nuclear Iran (so they think)…..

Iran knows that these latest sanctions are going to bite deep (just when they were getting stabilized!)

So rather than take off the pressure they INCREASE it……. and if a game of chess would likely be the move to win or lose!

The demands……………

“Europe should fully guarantee Iran’s oil sales. In case Americans can damage our oil sales … Europeans should make up for that and buy Iranian oil.”

Now should the EU go for this one it is perfect for Iran….and thats their game….. selling the oil will not be a problem…… but to undermine the US…. THAT is the target. Here

“European banks should safeguard trade with the Islamic Republic. We do not want to start a fight with these three countries [France, Germany and Britain], but we don’t trust them either,” Khamenei said.

Personally this is a real tough one to pull off, but if they succeed they drive a huge wedge between the rest of the world and the US…. absolutely perfect for all involved!

At Last……Sensibility

Today the 28th December 2017 I have had great pleasure in listening to a YouTube video from a USA Professor.

American University professor, Peter Kuznick, destroys the WWII myths that have underscored US foreign policy since 1945. Peter co-authored The Untold History of the United States with Oliver Stone.

This man gives a very serious detail of misplaced US foreign policy going back to 1945 in layman’s terms that logistically reasons the events that have put us in an horrendous situation today…..

This is probably going to be our epitaph of stupidity if we are not smart enough to see where we have gone wrong, and do something about it.

Absolutely brilliant

We have so little time to change……………………………………………

 

Game set and Match

So today the Russians have put a new missile system on the border of North Korea and according to the Snowflake Daily Mail…………………………………….

Russia has reacted to North Korea’s increased nuclear and ballistic missile testing and has moved to the border”. Here

But the real story is this small issue of whether NK can keep their nuclear power has been settled.

It would seem to me that the Russians have made their point clear…. go to war with NK and you go to war with us.

Whether your term is Game Set and Match or just check mate…….. this issue has now been addressed, battle lines drawn…… and to all intended purposes been resolved!

Fact or Fiction NK

This last couple of months has started the whole of the internet buzzing as to how do we handle North Korea…. My Answer?…. Its too late!

NK is the product of our foolishness, our desire for power and dominance in every sphere. This of course makes all around us either in awe or afraid of the powerful war machine, or makes us resentful and forced to be humbled.

Looking at this map of nuclear tests has to scare just about anyone that wants to live.

When your labelled as a little crazy fat man by a sitting US President in a country where you are revered to like a god……Its kind of personally insulting to say the least.

So the war machine goes on, and our window of opportunity is now nil, well unless the US wishes to end the lives of at least a million, and perhaps tens of millions.

The US has around 40 thousand troops nearby apart from civilians of SK, Japan,etc that make obvious first strike targets..

NK

The whole of this week has been surrounded by the latest test of NK missile test that confirms it has the ability to hit the USA with something.

************************************

Why has the North Korean regime pursued a nuclear programme?

Much of the regime’s domestic legitimacy rests on portraying the country as under constant threat from the US and its regional allies, South Korea and Japan.

To support the claim that it is in Washington’s crosshairs, North Korea cites the tens of thousands of US troops lined up along the southern side of the demilitarised zone – the heavily fortified border dividing the Korean peninsula. Tensions rise every spring at the start of joint military drills involving US and South Korean forces. North Korea insists the drills are a rehearsal for an invasion.

Faced with what it says are US provocations, North Korea says it has as much right as any other state to develop a nuclear deterrent.

North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un is also aware of the fate of other dictators who lacked nuclear weapons or were forced to give them up.

***********************************

While no doubt the USA is calculating how it can inflict the maximum pain on this upstart (who since 2006 has been in possession of nuclear weapons) every option is on the table to bring him to heel.

The US arsenal is huge, so he must lose, which is why he would fire off every single weapon he has if he believes he is under attack.

B52’s in their droves would descend, but would be much too late for the 40K plus troops of the USA, their frigates destroyers and aircraft carriers within 600 miles or so and all the people of SK and japan are duly concerned.

The most formidable drone ever is the Reaper. A autonomous search and destroy killing machine that is formidable to say the least.

The fact that this week Kim has confirmed he can reach around two thirds of the USA adds another ingredient to the flavor, particularly if he lets off all missiles because of a supposed attack.

AEGIS is lacking in so many ways and failures he is sure to hit some targets on USA soil, so bursting the USA dominance bubble.

So its decided he will lose and a mass annihilation is inevitable….. or is it?

On the 4th July NK launch it first intercontinental ballistic missile

Analysis by Japan and South Korea has supported the account given by North Korea’s Academy of Defence Science, which said the missile reached an altitude of 1,741 miles (2,802km) and flew 580 miles.

And although the public and foolish reporters may not have noticed there is something that perhaps North Korea was trying to put across to avoid any immediate action.

The space station is at an orbit of about 250 miles…. in relatively low orbit….. and the 4th july missile went seven times the height.

The GPS satellites are at a height of 12000 miles though, and with a slightly different missile NK’s rockets could be adapted and with just a little more advancement in technology.

That is the direction I believe NK will go to be assured of a no strike on it by any of the players in this scenario.

To lose the satellites means losing the Reaper, B52’s, every aircraft carrier and warship. No missile could be launched, and most ground based systems of infantry will have absolutely no idea where they are.

Many vehicles just would not go because of the reliance on GPS, in particular public transport, perhaps even your car, and you wont be hoping on any civilian plane.

And all without a single life being lost!

If he can do it….he will do it that is for sure, and we have not even considered the other players in this foolish game that governments play!

As I am not a tactical expert and think of this….. you can believe that Russia, and China thought of this many years ago, and giving that final technology to NK would enhance their pawns in the game.

Even without it…. a nuclear strike on NK spells disaster for all involved.

AS in the film ‘Wargames’……. “The only solution Dr Falken…….

 

Anti-Assad Death Squads Responsible for Gas Attack

Assad’s wrongfully blamed for Ghouta’s gas attack. Evidence shows insurgents bear full responsibility. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was clear and unequivocal, saying:

“We have the most serious grounds to believe (Ghouta’s attack) was a provocation.” Assad had nothing to do with it.

“There is no answer to a number of questions we have asked, such as where the weapon was made – at an official factory or using homemade methods,” Lavrov added.

Clear evidence shows insurgents have sarin and other toxic chemicals. Pentagon contractors trained them in their handling and use.

They have surface-to-surface missiles to launch them. They have motive, opportunity and capability to do so. They’ve done it multiple times before. They’ve been caught red-handed with toxic agents.

According to Russian political analyst Sergei Markov:

“We hear this argument that the rebels are not technically or morally capable of doing such a thing, and we simply don’t accept that.”

“We’d like to see previous instances (of toxic chemicals used) properly investigated, because you will find that the rebels have used poison gas before in this conflict.”

US and Russia agree Syria chemical weapons deal in Geneva

“Well, well,well….. politicians actually doing their political job.
This is really a bit of good news amongst all the rhetoric……. today Obama is breathing a sigh of relief, but to be honest, no thanks to him or Kerry. Putin is exploiting their foolishness, but has scored real points in this………
The red line, degrading the Soviet compromise, the vote in the house, British escape, the pandemonium caused by reckless intolerant attitude….

John Kerry and Sergei Lavrov
This should be a lesson to the Brits too…….. not to blindly follow.
All these are relevant issues, but at the end of the day, who brokered the deal…… THE PEOPLE DID!
Starting with the Brits to defeat a vote that showed real sensibility form the parliamentarians……
Then Obama putting his toe in the water with the Americans finding that it was scalding hot forced a huge amount of backpedaling, and best of all, FORCED NEGOTIATION between all sides.
The only negotiation forced by the will of the people in 50 yrs and the ONLY one that can be called a success…….. Now lets start looking at every single weapon that has an indiscriminate nature………….
Seeing you guys are actually talking now, lets look at depleted uranium, drones, atomic weapons………. its a good start!”

Quotes about life

Vladimir Putin Warns Against U.S. Military Intervention


This is really getting to be a comedy of errors…… my red line/world red line……boots/no boots on ground……. Brits with us/Brits gone…… world support/no one there……. let the people vote/ hold it off till the polls get better…….. Give up CW/ woops I was kidding…………. Give up CW/ I was serious……….Assad used CW/ the rebels used it sometimes…….. Its for American safety/ they can attack our allies not America……..attack so send ships/dont attack have them sunbathe a while……………..
While we are dithering about interfering in someone elses business the whole issue has become a mockery, and our concerns now lie with wether our makeup is on right, not with the crucial issue that we are talking about peoples lives.
This is a badly thought out intervention without sufficient proof or backing and poor leadership as to a sensible way forward.
One thing is absolutely certain……. an attack on Syria is not nonsensical and unrealistic.

Russia To Push Syria To Put Chemical Weapons Under International Control


What should be noted here is that Obama said he would not meet Putin at the summit and talk. It was some sort of childish thing in response to non co-operation from the Russians on Syria.
After that little snub, they kind of wandered together and talked for about 35 mins, and Angela tried to get in on the act, and then all of the representatives joined the fray.
Would it not be astounding that if, in that 35 mins Obama asked for some help and Vladimir responded …………. the result being a phone call to Assad and brokering a deal?????
What we may be seeing is a new understanding from the two most powerful governments in the world. A new co-operation that may do more than all the bombs that we have ever deployed….
I would suggest to both men, and they are indeed men…… that a 1 hour meeting every other week, and get rid of all your war advisors……… you can do it if you want!
