Forty-Seven Republican Traitors Drive US Towards Catastrophic Middle East War

 



Forty-Seven Republican Traitors Drive US Towards Catastrophic Middle East War 

 
 Voltairenet 

 by Webster G. Tarpley 

 
Since the Republican Party of National Sabotage took over the House of Representatives, the US government has been subjected to the full range of domestic anarchy, with crises of default, government shutdown, the Satan sandwich, the sequester, and the threatened shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security. The GOP’s stock in trade has been revealed as chaos and ungovernability, in line with their Austrian slogan of “Government doesn’t work — elect us and we’ll prove it!” The same methods have been employed by the Supreme Court RATS cabal under the ideological leadership of Scalia. Now, with the Senate under GOP control, these reactionary anarchists are pursuing international anarchy. They seek a paralysis of US diplomacy which, whatever its content, is the only alternative to a general war over Ukraine, Syria, Iran, or some other issue. The GOP is intent on provocations: first they invited the desperate adventurer Netanyahu (who threatened to attack Iran if the US declined to do so), and now they have followed that with their #47Traitors letter to the Iranian government, which promises to sabotage any peace deal.

If all peace deals are blocked by the GOP saboteurs, the chances of war are greatly increased. If all US executive agreements not passed by the senate are called into question (think of FDR’s emergency destroyers for bases deal with the UK is September 1940), then US foreign relations will be reduced to a chaos sure to be more dangerous than the current status quo. If there are forces in Iran opposed to a modus vivendi, these forces will surely be strengthened, again making war more likely. If the talks fail, the US will be blamed, but Americans should pass that blame on to the GOP scoundrels. Already we may be seeing the French warmonger foreign minister Fabius encouraged by the GOP in his own wrecking operation.

Despite the impression which Netanyahu and the Republicans are eager to convey, the current talks involve Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council (Russia, China, Britain, France, US) plus Germany. These other powers should now retaliate against the GOP letter by exiting the US-imposed regime of economic sanctions, which they were very foolish to agree to in the first place.

Will U.S. let ‘bad things’ happen to Israel over Netanyahu’s 

 rejection of Palestinian state?


  By Joel Greenberg  March 20, 2015

McClatchy Foreign Staff

JERUSALEM — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has yet to form a new government after his election victory this week, but already he faces what could be a substantial shift in relations with the United States. For the third straight day, the Obama administration signaled Friday that it remains furious at Netanyahu’s pre-election statement ruling out a Palestinian state while he is prime minister and that it will recalibrate its diplomatic approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Interviews that Netanyahu has given in recent days to try to walk back the no-Palestinian-state statement have not eased President Barack Obama’s anger, and a phone call between the two men on Thursday didn’t clarify Netanyahu’s position, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters in Washington. “That was not the result of the call,” Earnest said. Netanyahu’s office did not announce that the call had taken place, a departure from custom. Earnest said Obama had used the same sort of language that Earnest himself has used in recent days to express his dismay at Netanyahu’s pre-election actions. Earnest’s comments left no reason to doubt a wire service report quoting an unnamed official that Obama had told Netanyahu “we will need to reassess our options following the prime minister’s new positions and comments regarding the two-state solution.” “When Prime Minister Netanyahu indicated a weakness in his commitment, and I think that’s putting it charitably, he was indicating a difference of opinion not just with President Obama, but with the policy that was pursued by President Bush, and the policy that is strongly supported by Democrats and Republicans in the United States Congress,” Earnest said. “If that policy foundation has been the driver of policy decisions that are made at the United Nations, it’s important for us to reconsider those kinds of decisions, now that our strongest ally in the Middle East has withdrawn from its commitment to that policy goal.” Read more at MClatchy News

War is a Racket that can't even be considered in today's world

General Butler's opinions about war are as true today as they were after WW1,when he made this speech. Our country has the largest military, the largest war budget, and the most nuclear armaments of any country on the planet. Of special note, we also have the largest national debt. If you can comprehend numbers larger than a trillion dollars, you can understand what Butler was saying about the banks

Khartoum accuses Israel over Yarmouk bombing


Satellite pictures suggest Sudanese weapons factory hit by air strike US monitoring group says images are consistent with attack from air as Khartoum accuses Israel over Yarmouk bombing


 Associated Press

 theguardian.com, Saturday 27 October 2012 15.55 EDT

The Yarmouk military complex in Khartoum, Sudan seen in a satellite image made on 12 October, prior to the alleged attack. Photograph: AP Satellite images of the aftermath of an explosion at a Sudanese weapons factory this past week suggest the site was hit in an air strike, a US monitoring group said Saturday. The Sudanese government has accused Israel of bombing its Yarmouk military complex in Khartoum, killing two people and leaving the factory in ruins. The images released by the Satellite Sentinel Project to the Associated Press on Saturday showed six 52-foot wide craters near the epicenter of Wednesday's explosion at the compound. Military experts consulted by the project found the craters to be "consistent with large impact craters created by air-delivered munitions", Satellite Sentinel Project spokesman Jonathan Hutson said. The target may have been around 40 shipping containers seen at the site in earlier images. The group said the craters center on the area where the containers had been stacked. Israeli officials have neither confirmed nor denied striking the site. Instead, they accused Sudan of playing a role in an Iranian-backed network of arms shipments to Hamas and Hezbollah. Israel believes Sudan is a key transit point in the circuitous route that weapons take to the Islamic militant groups in the Gaza Strip and Lebanon. Sudan was a major hub for al-Qaida militants and remains a transit for weapon smugglers and African migrant traffickers. Israeli officials believe arms that originate in the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas go through Sudan before crossing Egypt's lawless Sinai desert and into Gaza through underground tunnels. The Satellite Sentinel Project is a partnership between the Enough Project, a Washington-based anti-genocide advocacy group and DigitalGlobe, which operates three commercial satellites and provides geospatial analysis. The project was founded last year with support from actor George Clooney, and in the past has used satellite images to monitor the destruction of villages by Sudanese troops in the country's multiple war zones. Opened in 1996, Yarmouk is one of two known state-owned weapons manufacturing plants in the Sudanese capital. Sudan prided itself in having a way to produce its own ammunition and weapons despite United Nations and US sanctions. The satellite images indicate that the Yarmouk facility includes an oil storage facility, a military depot and an ammunition plant. The monitoring group said the images indicate that the blast "destroyed two buildings and heavily damaged at least 21 others", adding that there was no indication of fire damage at the fuel depot inside the military complex. The group said it could not be certain the containers, seen in images taken 12 October, were still there when explosion took place. But the effects of the blast suggested a "highly volatile cargo" was at the epicenter of the explosion. "If the explosions resulted from a rocket or missile attack against material stored in the shipping containers, then it was an effective surgical strike that totally destroyed any container" that was at the location, the project said. Yarmouk is located in a densely populated residential area of the city approximately 11km southwest of the Khartoum international airport. Wednesday's explosion sent exploding ammunition flying into homes in the neighborhood adjacent to the factory, causing panic among residents. Sudanese officials said some people suffered from smoke inhalation. A man who lives near the factory said that from inside their house, he and his brother heard a load roar of what they believed was a plane just before the boom of the explosion sounded from the factory. In the aftermath of Wednesday's explosion, Sudanese officials said the government has the right to respond to what the information minister said was a "flagrant attack" by Israel on Sudan's sovereignty and right to strengthen its military capabilities. In a Friday speech marking Eid al Adha, Islam's biggest holiday, Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir called Israel "short-sighted," according to comments published by the Egyptian state-owned paper Al Ahram. The president likened the incident to the 1998 bombing by American cruise missiles of a Khartoum pharmaceutical factory suspected of links to al-Qaida. Some Israeli commentators suggested that if Israel did indeed carry out an airstrike causing Wednesday's blast, it might have been a trial run of sorts for an operation in Iran. Both countries are roughly 1,000 miles (1,600km) away from Israel, and an air operation would require careful planning and in-flight refueling.

What caused the concrete to fuse around the floor studs at Ground Zero?



Evidence of temperatures hot enough to melt concrete and steel are everywhere you look in this video footage, yet there also places where you would expect maximum damage, that look like nothing happened. The Coca Cola truck sitting by the skeleton of Tower 2 looks normal, while in other places there are cars and trucks with melted engine blocks and missing glass that are blocks away from the ruins of the buildings. 

This appears to be the end part of a floor truss with part of the floor pan and the end of the zig zag bar that re-enforces it. There was 4 inches of concrete poured over the top of the studs. The question is...how did the concrete floors disappear and why is there fused concrete bonded to the studs and the end piece. My first guess is that the concrete was suspended in plasma and was possibly attracted to the iron which acted as a heat sink.
