“If you have a safe place to go, go there”..Blair’s message to Colonel Gaddafi

•October 4, 2015 • 3 Comments



Tony Blair warned Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi to find safety as his regime began to collapse.

Showing surprising concern for the tyrant’s welfare, Mr Blair told him: ‘If you have a safe place to go then you should go there’.

There was no mention of facing justice and instead Mr Blair wanted to broker a deal for Gaddafi.

The conversation shines a light once again on his questionable links to the man responsible for decades of authoritarian rule.

The former Prime Minister was criticised over his infamous ‘Deal in the desert’ in 2004 which secured lucrative oil deals for BP and ended Libya’s international isolation.

He also wrote Gaddafi grovelling letters which began: ‘Dear Muammar, I trust you and your family are well’.

The conversation between Mr Blair and Gaddafi was made public as part of the latest batch of emails released from when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State in response to a freedom of information request.

The relevant message is dated February 25, 2011 and was sent by Mr Blair’s head of strategy Catherine Rimmer to Jake Sullivan, Mrs Clinton’s former top foreign policy adviser, who sent it on to her.

At the time Mr Blair was special envoy to the Middle East for the Quartet – the UN, the US, the EU and Russia.

Miss Rimmer notes that ‘Mr Blair wanted me to let you know that he is making these calls very privately and is not briefing the media’.

She says that Mr Blair ‘delivered a very strong message to Gaddafi that the violence had to end and that he had to stand aside’.

Miss Rimmer then directly quotes Mr Blair telling Gaddafi: ‘The absolute key thing is that the bloodshed and violence must stop…if you have a safe place to go then you should go there, because this will not end peacefully unless that happens.

‘If this goes on for another day/two days we will go past the point. I’m saying this because I believe it deeply. If we can’t get a way through/out very quickly this will go past the point of no return.’

Another email from February 23, 2011 from Mr Sullivan to Mrs Clinton describes how Mr Blair was suggested to Mrs Clinton as someone who ‘might have a good relationship’ with Gaddafi. The dictator fled the capital Tripoli and was killed by rebels near Sirte, his birthplace, in October 2011.

Other messages sent and received by Mrs Clinton reveal more details about how Cherie Blair lobbied her on behalf of her friends in the Qatari government.

Earlier emails showed that in the summer of 2009 and in 2010 Mrs Blair arranged a meeting between Mrs Clinton and her friend Sheikha Mozah.

The latest batch show that in the summer of 2011 Mrs Blair also facilitated a meeting with Mrs Clinton and Fahed al-Atiyah, chairman of the Qatar Food Security Programme.

Nobody for Mr or Mrs Blair was available for comment.


“The conversation shines a light once again on his questionable links to the man responsible for decades of authoritarian rule.”

are they talking about gaddafi or cameron?? :)

the irony here is overwhelming..


$1 billion contract to protect US government networks goes to Raytheon

The US Department of Homeland security has awarded Raytheon a five-year contract, which could be worth up to $1 billion, to protect government agencies from the growing number of cyber threats, in one of the largest civilian cybersecurity measures in years.

The deal boosts the protection of more than 100 federal agencies, making Raytheon the prime contractor the Department of Homeland Security’s Network Security Deployment (NDS) division. It comes alongside news that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) fell victim to one of the most serious hacks is the history of the United States government.Hackers stole the personnel information of 21.5 million people current and former government employees, such as social security numbers and security clearance information, as well as the fingerprints of 5.6 million people.

“Today’s cyber threats are increasingly pervasive and serious, and our government and private sector institutions require the best protection possible,” Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services, said in a press release. “Raytheon has invested over $3.5 billion in recent years to build our cybersecurity capabilities, and we’re looking forward to bringing the very best and most innovative solutions to the Department of Homeland Security.”

While the Boston-based defense contractor is known more for its radar and missile systems than cybersecurity, Raytheon acquired 12 cyber companies over the last 10 years, making this contract a big win for the company’s long-term strategy. This move was in contrast to the behavior of other defense contractors such as Lockheed Martin, who is focusing on its military hardware while laying off 500 employees in its information technology division, according to the Washington Post.

Wajsgras noted that cybersecurity incidents have, worldwide, increased an average of 66 percent a year between 2009 and 2014.


Raytheon will provide full lifecycle development and sustainment support under a new contract with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that could be worth approximately $1 billion. DHS and the 100+ federal agencies using its infrastructure will draw upon the company’s broad cyber capabilities and 30 years of experience working with defense, intelligence and commercial customers.

As prime contractor for the Network Security Deployment Division (NSD), Raytheon will help safeguard the .gov domain. The U.S. government has noted that cybersecurity is one of its biggest national security challenges, and the White House has said the country must take “aggressive and decisive steps to protect our networks and information.“


who would have guessed it eh? *sarcasm

Taliban insurgents seize 4 districts in Afghanistan

•October 3, 2015 • 1 Comment



As Afghan forces recaptured the city of Kunduz from the Taliban, militants seized four other districts across several other of the country’s provinces and are now heading towards the border with Tajikistan, according to reports in local media.

The militants overran Tala wa Barfak and Qala Zal districts in northern Afghanistan, adjacent to the Tajikistan border as well as the Khwaja Ghar district north-west of the capital Kabul, Afghani news agency Pajhwok reported, citing officials.

The Tala wa Barfak district was captured by 11:00pm local time on Wednesday with security forces retreating to the neighboring Samangan province. “Taliban had blocked the roads…” the local militia commander, Khairullah, told Pajhwok adding that the militants controlled the district center forcing Afghan military and civil servants out of the region.

The Taliban confirmed the seizure of the Tala wa Barfak district. The group’s spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed that the militants captured five Ranger pick-ups and two tanks as well as weapons and ammunition. He also said that Afghan forces suffered several casualties in the clashes.

On Wednesday night, militants also seized the Khwaja Ghar district in the country’s Takhar province not far from the Afghan capital of Kabul. The Takhar province governor’s spokesman, Sunatullah Timori, confirmed the seizure and said that the Taliban had overrun the entire district.

“Afghan forces have retreated from the district centre, but they will soon launch an operation to regain the town’s control,” Timori said as quoted by Pajhwok.


the battle against the “jihadis” opens on a third front..iraq, syria and now afghanistan..again..

who shot down the plane that killed 11?..countries dont like to admit they have taken a hit..


“The US has denied Taliban claims they shot down an American cargo plane in eastern Afghanistan. The C-130 plane crashed at about midnight on Thursday,killing six soldiers and five civilian contractors. The US said there was no sign of hostile fire.

“With high confidence, it does not appear at this time that enemy fire was involved in the aircraft crash. We have first responders on scene working at the crash site doing recovery operations. An investigation is under way to determine the cause of the accident,” said Maj Tony Wickman of the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing at Bagram.”

One thing that that has puzzled a lot of people since the selection of Pope Francis two years ago is how a left-leaning Pope could succeed two very serious conservative Popes—John Paul II and Benedict XVI—who you would have thought had stacked the ranks of the Cardinals with clergy that would perpetuate their theological and philosophical outlook. Was Benedict hounded out of office by some kind of internal Vatican scandal perhaps? Was there some ecclesiastical version of a coup?

There’s no evidence that I’m aware of—until now. Three days ago the National Catholic Register ran a very curious article about the contents of a newly published authorized biography of retired Belgian cardinal Godfried Danneels. The Register articlereports:

Further serious concerns are being raised about Cardinal Godfried Danneels, one of the papal delegates chosen to attend the upcoming Ordinary Synod on the Family, after the archbishop emeritus of Brussels confessed this week to being part of a radical “mafia” reformist group opposed to Benedict XVI. . .

At the launch of the book in Brussels this week, the cardinal said he was part of a secret club of cardinals opposed to Pope Benedict XVI.

He called it a “mafia” club that bore the name of St. Gallen. The group wanted a drastic reform of the Church, to make it “much more modern”, and for Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio to head it. The group, which also comprised Cardinal Walter Kasper and the late Jesuit Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, has been documented in Austen Ivereigh’s biography of Pope Francis, The Great Reformer.

Over at The American Conservative, Rod Dreher has gone to the trouble of translating an Italian report that is even more curious:

The Italian Vaticanist Marco Tosatti writes (in Italian; I’ve modified the Google translation):

The election of Jorge Bergoglio was the result of secret meetings that cardinals and bishops, organized by Carlo Maria Martini, held for years in St. Gallen, Switzerland. This, according to Jürgen Mettepenningen et Karim Schelkens, authors of a newly published biography of the Belgian Cardinal Godfried Danneels, who calls the group of cardinals and bishops a “Mafia club”.
Danneels according to the authors, worked for years to prepare for the election of Pope Francis, which took place in 2013. Danneels, moreover, in a video recorded during the presentation of the book in Brussels, admits that he was part of a secret club of cardinals who opposed Joseph Ratzinger. Laughing, he calls it “a Mafia club that  bore the name of St. Gallen”.
The group wanted a drastic reform of the Church, much more modern and current, with Jorge Bergoglio, Pope Francis, as its head. They got what they wanted. Besides Danneels and Martini, the group according to the book were part of the Dutch bishop Adriaan Van Luyn, the German cardinal Walter Kasper and Karl Lehman, the Italian Cardinal Achille Silvestrini and British Basil Hume, among others.

I underscore that this is not some secretly sourced claim, but it’s from an advance copy of Cardinal Danneels’ official biography, approved by himself. 

This is the first confirmation of rumors that had been going around for years about Benedict being thwarted by a liberal conspiracy, one that eventually forced him out. These men — Danneels, Van Luyn, Kasper, Lehman, and Hume, at least — all preside over dying churches. And they killed the Benedict papacy.

This might explain a few things. . .


thanks to intrigued for the link..

oh there was a coup..why do we have 2 popes alive at the same time?

why do we have the first jesuit pope now?

Bank of England’s Carney warns of climate change risk

•October 3, 2015 • 3 Comments

Mark Carney in conversation at the Bank of England. 10th Feb 2015


The Bank of England governor has given a stark warning that climate change poses a huge risk to global stability.

At a gathering of leading insurers at Lloyd’s of London, Mark Carney pointed out the rapid increase in weather-related catastrophes and the jump in both the physical and financial costs.

He said the challenges currently posed by climate change “pale in significance compared with what might come”.

He said this generation had little incentive to avert future problems.

He avoided spelling out what was causing this apparent change, but said evidence was mounting of man’s role in climate change.

Insurers are among those with the biggest interest in climate change as the syndicates operating at Lloyd’s, the world’s oldest insurance market, are the most exposed to disasters such as hurricanes and floods.

Mr Carney said the after-effects of such disasters were likely to grow worse: “The challenges currently posed by climate change pale in significance compared with what might come.

“The far-sighted amongst you are anticipating broader global impacts on property, migration and political stability, as well as food and water security.”

But he said because the cost would fall on future generations there was little impetus on the current one to fix it: “In other words, once climate change becomes a defining issue for financial stability, it may already be too late.”


Mark Joseph Carney, OC (born March 16, 1965) is a Canadian central banker and the current Governor of the Bank of England and Chairman of the G20’s Financial Stability Board. He was previously the Governor of the Bank of Canada, and began his career at Goldman Sachs and the Canadian Department of Finance.


what do you expect from a goldman sachs guy?

“He said the challenges currently posed by climate change “pale in significance compared with what might come”

might, could, maybe, if, possible..they talk in riddles..dodging shadows that dont exist..


Russia launches first airstrikes in Syria

•October 2, 2015 • 4 Comments




Claiming to target ISIS, Russia conducted its first airstrikes in Syria, while U.S. officials expressed serious doubts Wednesday about what the true intentions behind the move may be.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, warplanes targeted eight ISIS positions, including arms, transportation, communications and control positions.

But U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter countered that claim.

“I want to be careful about confirming information, but it does appear that they (Russian airstrikes) were in areas where there probably were not ISIL forces,” he told reporters. ISIL is an acronym for ISIS.

“The result of this kind of action will inevitably, simply be to inflame the civil war in Syria,” Carter said.

A senior U.S. administration official told CNN’s Elise Labott that a Russian airstrike near the Syrian city of Homs “has no strategic purpose” in terms of combating ISIS, which “shows they are not there to go after ISIL.”

Syrian state-run news agency SANA reported that Russian warplanes had targeted “ISIS dens” in al-Rastan, Talbiseh and Zafaraniya in Homs province; Al-Tilol al-Hmer, in Qunaitra province; Aydoun, a village on the outskirts of the town of Salamiya; Deer Foul, between Hama and Homs; and the outskirts of Salmiya.

The official said the United States had no intention of preventing the strikes, but that Russian planes didn’t seem to be flying in areas where the United States is operating.

“They are not stupid,” the official said.


As we reported earlier this morning, at the “request” (whatever that means in the context of Russian politics) of Vladimir Putin, Russian lawmakers have approved airstrikes in Syria and unlike the rather deliberate pace of Washington’s efforts to rout ISIS, Moscow doesn’t appear to be wasting any time.

As CNN reports, Russia has conducted its first strikes near Homs after effectively warning the US to stay out of the sky.

Russia has conducted its first airstrike in Syria, near the city of Homs, a senior U.S. official told CNN on Wednesday .

The Russians told the United States that it should not fly U.S. warplanes in Syria, but gave no geographical information about where Russia planned to strike. The senior official said U.S. missions are continuing as normal.

Yes, the “US missions are continuing as normal”, which means no one is doing much of anything and some CIA-trained proxy fighters are being pick-up-truck-jacked somewhere by al-Qaeda.


whats good for the goose is good for the gander..

its ok for the western countries to bomb anything and everything..its ok for turkey to bomb anything and everything including PKK positions..but as soon as russia steps up everybody loses their shit..the hypocrisy is oozing out from the edges..

and now we know why this happened:



The NWO army is growing.. Countries pledge 40,000 UN peacekeepers at UN summit

•October 2, 2015 • 6 Comments



US President Barack Obama announced on Monday more than 50 countries have pledged some 40,000 peacekeepers for possible deployment on United Nations missions, as well as helicopters, medical units and training and equipment to deal with roadside bombs.

Obama chaired a summit of world leaders at the United Nations to garner commitments to boost the capacity and capabilities of UN peacekeeping and to allow the world body to deploy forces more rapidly if a new operation is created.

“Our goal should be to make every new peace operation more efficient and more effective than the last,” Obama said.

The US ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, said in addition to some 40,000 new troops and police, more than 50 countries had pledged to provide more than 40 helicopters, 15 military engineering companies and 10 field hospitals.

China made one of the biggest commitments. President Xi Jinping pledged to set up a “permanent peacekeeping police squad and build a peacekeeping standby force of 8,000 troops.”

Amid a stream of allegations of misconduct and sexual abuse by UN peacekeepers in Central African Republic, US officials say the surplus troops will also allow the United Nations to exercise more discretion with its 16 current missions.

“The overwhelming number of peacekeepers serve with honour and decency in extraordinarily difficult situations. But we have seen some appalling cases of peacekeepers abusing civilians … and that is totally unacceptable,” Obama said.

According to the UN website, the United States provides 82 of the more than 106,500 people deployed on UN peacekeeping missions: 34 troops, 42 police and six military advisers. But Washington pays for more than 28 per cent of the more than $8.2 billion UN peacekeeping budget.

Obama said the United States would work to double the number of military advisers that it contributes to UN peacekeeping, and offer logistical support, including air and sea lifts, and training.

“When there’s an urgent need and we’re uniquely positioned to help, we’ll undertake engineering projects like building airfields and base camps for new missions,” he said.


thats what they are..the UN army..the NWO army..

“50 countries have pledged some 40,000 peacekeepers for possible deployment on United Nations missions, as well as helicopters, medical units and training and equipment to deal with roadside bombs.”


“more than 50 countries had pledged to provide more than 40 helicopters, 15 military engineering companies and 10 field hospitals.”
