Afghan Drug Trade, A Threat to Russia and U.S.-Russian Relations: DRUG-FINANCED SALAFI JIHADISM

by Prof. Peter Dale Scott

Preface for a North American Audience

I delivered the following remarks at an anti-NATO conference held in Moscow on May 15, 2012. Unlike other speakers, my paper urged Russians -- despite the expansionist and aggressive activities in Central Asia of the CIA, SOCOM, and NATO -- to cooperate under neutral auspices with like-minded Americans, towards dealing with the related crises of Afghan drug production and drug-financed Salafi jihadism.

Since the conference I have continued to reflect intensely on the battered state of U.S.-Russian relations, and my own slightly utopian response to it. Although the speakers at the conference represented many different viewpoints, they tended all to share a deep anxiety about US intentions towards Russia and the other former states of the USSR. Their anxiety was based on shared knowledge of past American actions and broken promises, of which they (unlike most Americans) are only too aware.

A key example of such broken promises was the assurance that NATO would not take advantage of d├ętente to expand into Eastern Europe. Today of course Poland is a member of NATO, and there are still proposals on the table to expand NATO also into the Ukraine – i.e. the very heart of the former Soviet Union. This push was matched by U.S. joint activities and operations – some of them under NATO auspices – with the army and security forces of Uzbekistan. (These began in 1997 – i.e. in the Clinton administration.)

Some of the conferees I spoke to see Russia has having been threatened for two decades after World War Two by active US and UK plans for a nuclear first strike against Russia, before it could gain nuclear parity. While obviously these plans were never implemented, those I spoke to were sure that the ultras who desired them have never abandoned their desire to humiliate Russia and reduce it to a third-rate power. I cannot refute this concern: my recent book American War Machine also sees a relentless push since World War Two to establish and sustain global American dominance in the world.

Thus the conference speakers were bitterly opposed to Putin’s endorsement, as recently as April 11 of this year, of NATO’s military efforts in Afghanistan. They are particularly incensed by Putin’s agreement this year to the establishment of a NATO base in Ulianovsk, two hundred kilometers east of Moscow in Russia itself. Although the base has been sold to the Russian public as a way to facilitate US withdrawal from Afghanistan, one speaker assured the conference that the Ulianovsk outpost is described in NATO documents as a military base. And they resent Russia’s support of the US-inspired UN sanctions against Iran; they see Iran instead as a natural ally of Russia against American efforts to achieve global domination.

NATO. "1984" Revisited. When "War is Peace"

Considering the current state of world peace and NATO's Responsibility to Protect (R2P) policy and to maintain a proper sense of balance, George Orwell's book "1984" should be reviewed periodically. In the spirit of the NATO Summit in Chicago, I present a few quotes from that textbook-for- tomorrow:

* "If the Party could thrust its hand into the past and say this or that even, it never happened-that, surely, was more terrifying than mere torture and death."

* "Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? Has it ever occurred to your, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now? The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact, there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking-not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness."

* "All rulers in all ages have tried to impose a false view of the world upon their followers."

* Then the face of Big Brother faded away again and instead the three slogans of the Party stood out in bold capitals:

WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH"

Minister Crean on Regional Australia Institute - cORRUPTION OR sTUPIDITY?

I really don't know what to make of this one. People try to tell me Australia is not corrupt, but from where I sit it's just more careful and dressed up...


From: Barnaby Joyce
Date: Thu, May 24, 2012 at 4:59 PM
Subject: Joyce - Media Release - Questions for Minister Crean on Regional Australia Institute

Shadow Minister for Regional Development, Local Government and Water
Leader of the Nationals in the Senate

Questions for Minister Crean on Regional Australia Institute

Any person dealing with another person’s money, especially taxpayers’ money has to be extremely careful that there is not the perception that there is any direct personal benefit of the appropriation of those funds.

When Mr Crean started the process of setting up a Regional Development Policy Centre, at the behest of Mr Windsor and Mr Oakeshott, Mr Crean appointed a Reference Group to appoint the Board of the Regional Australia Institute.

It is not clear how this Reference Group appointed the Board, but no positions seem to have been advertised for. In any case, it was a lucky coincidence that the Reference Group picked two of their own, Mr Mal Peters and former Labor MP Mr Christian Zahra, to be members of this Board as confirmed by Deputy Secretary of the Department of Regional Australia, Stephanie Foster:

Senator Joyce
Did the reference group appoint the Board?
Stephanie Foster
That's correct Senator.
Senator Joyce
Correct me if I am wrong, wasn't Mal Peters and Ian Sinclair on the reference group?*
Stephanie Foster
That's correct Senator.
Senator Joyce
So they appointed themselves.
Stephanie Foster
That's correct.

The Regional Australia Institute was then lucky enough to be given $8 million for the establishment of the promised Regional Development Policy Centre.

The Regional Australia Institute is a registered company with ASIC, not a government agency, so it can’t be scrutinised by Parliament. The Department can’t tell us how much the Board will be paid, that is a matter for them, or even what in detail they are doing with the money.

Even so, the government has given $8 million, up front, to a new body, established by people who were appointed by the Minister. The government has not linked payments to performance despite this new organisation having no record or history.

There are a number of serious questions that Mr Crean must answer about these appointments.

- How did the Minister select people to the Reference Group to appoint members of the Board of the Regional Institute of Australia?
- Was the Minister aware that people of this Reference Group had the power to appoint themselves?
- What selection process did the Minister require the Reference Group to go through in selecting the Board?
- What assurances has the Minister received that the Board will set their remuneration at appropriate levels?
- Why has the government decided to grant $8 million to a new body rather than tie payments to their performance?

*Stephanie Foster later corrected the record to say that it was Christian Zahra who was on the reference group and was subsequently appointed to the board of Regional Australia.

He will destroy those who are destroying the earth

Revelation of John 11:18 “And the nations were enraged, and Your wrath has come, and the time of the dead to be judged, and to give the reward to Your servants the prophets and to the set-apart ones, and to those who fear Your Name, small and great, and to destroy those who destroy the earth.”

It's good to know Yehovah wil take revenge on those who are raping and destroying the earth. I for one am so looking forward to His government on earth and the restoration of our planet.

US Officially Arming Extremists in Syria for Regime Change

Denied no longer, US officials admit US-Saudi cash & logistical support arming terrorists in Syria.

"Recently reported in "Brookings Announces Next Move in Syria: War," it was stated that "by the US policy think-tank Brookings Institution's own admission, the Kofi Annan six-point peace plan in Syria was merely a ploy to buy time to reorganize NATO's ineffective terrorist proxies and provide them the pretext necessary for establishing NATO protected safe havens from which to carry out their terrorism from." It was also examined in detail, how in 2007, US, Saudi, and Israeli officials admitted they were creating a militant front of extremists for the sole purpose of causing the destabilization of Syria we see today, and ultimately overthrowing the Syrian government. It was noted how these extremist militants had direct ties to Al Qaeda."

Are the same old players behind some of this?

UN Sanctioning Sovereign Nations, We the People Sanctioning the Global Elite: Time to cut them off from humanity.

Let us commit to putting "sanctions" on the globalists. Cut these degenerate megalomaniacs off from the world they so desire to dominate. Leave their stadiums empty, their airlines destitute, their checkpoints desolate, their corporate troughs filled with Chinese made slave goods virtual ghost towns, their banks as trusted and relied upon for economic activity as that game of monopoly collecting dust in the closet. Put them out of business, put them out of business forever. They have demonstrated without a shadow of a doubt that they, not some cave dwelling fundamentalist or Libyan colonel, are the greatest threat we as humanity face.

JP Morgan is not infallible, loses $2 BILLION!

JP Morgan:
  • Is the world’s largest publicly-traded company
  • Is the largest bank in the U.S. … the biggest of the too big to fail banks which are killing the American economy
  • Is the largest derivatives dealer in the world (and see this), and derivatives are inherently destabilizing for the economy
  • Essentially wrote the faux “reform” legislation for derivatives, which did nothing to decrease risk, and killed any chance of real reform
  • Is the creator of credit default swaps – which caused the 2008 financial crisis, and is the asset class which blew up and caused the loss
  • Has had large potential exposures to credit default swap losses for years
  • Has replaced the chief investment officer who made the risky bets with a trader who worked at Long Term Capital Management … which committed suicide by making risky bets
  • Went completely insolvent in the 1980s
  • … and again in 2007 ( and was saved both times by the government at taxpayer expense)
  • Heads – with Goldman Sachs – the Treasury Borrowing Advisory Committee, which helps set government financial policy
  • Has a reputation of being the most risk-averse of the big Wall Street players
  • Was kept alive by a huge government bailout … but used the money to invest in India and other projects which won’t really help Americans
  • Has made a killing by kicking companies (and see this) and governments (and here) when they are down, engaging in various types of fraud (update), allegedly manipulating the silver market, and profiting on misery by acting as the largest processor of food stamps in America

Russian Financial System Falling Behind - Geopolitical Monitor

Some people think Gog & Magog refers to Russia, and that Russia will grow stronger. I suspect the context of prophecy may indicate it is people closer to the north instead of further; leaving Russia's significance in question. Will we see Russia rise as a mighty power again, or will it come to serve the NWO, with the main parties rising more in the Middle East? Yehovah only knows, and time only will tell.
