More humanitarian bombing on the way?

I see that Britain has opened discussions with the Syrian opposition forces. Translation: Britain, under American instructions, the Americans in turn operating under Israeli instructions, have just landed a squadron of CIA-trained 'military advisors' in Syria. Apparently the West is concerned that over 3,500 civilians have been killed.

Memo to Cameron, Obongo and Clinton. Nearly a million have died in Iraq thanks to the West's humanitarian intervention. But not to worry, we now have peace and democracy in Libya, with those nice Al Queda people all set to hold fair and democratic elections.

So expect humanitarian bombing to resume shortly.

PS - does Syria have a Central Bank?

Ah yes. We had to destroy the country in order to save it ...

That has a nice, familiar ring to it.

There is a google warning when I click on a link to come here. Sounds like you're been reported for speaking the truth. I hope your blog won't disappear.

Back to Syria : Russians still have a military base there and I don't think that NATO would like to get involved into such a complicated overt military intervention.

Thanks Novokin. This has been there for a while. I won't be taken down until I'm reaching a really vast number of people, so I'm safe for the moment.

The US State Department likes to kill Christians.

I think the Alawites in Syria are Christian - sort of.

So, here we go again.

About Syria and the Middle East, My Son in Law spent a month, working in Iran in September, he says the people are very nice and well educated. They hate the Arabs and hate it that the rest of the world lumps them together with the Arabs. They also hate their president!

The alawites are a branch of Shia, nothing to do with Christians.

This is humanitarian dying, which is a benevolent form of being killed. Not to be confused with the insidious, racist form of colonial killing.

This kind of killing is for our own good.

Ah, that is the question, and will determine whether the humanitarian bombing will actually take place.

B-b-but Savant, this is diffferrrennnttt! *stamps foot*

The problem is the cognitive dissonance on the left's part. They simply cannot see that what they are doing is the exact same thing as Iraq.

I'm sure there's a formal name for the phenomenon: "Humanitarian intervention" always works. If it doesn't, they simply call it (and genuinely see it as) something else.

Why do people in the West even give a monkey about violence in the Middle East? Arabs have been killing each other since time began, and will continue to do so until time ends. So why is the West so sanctimonious about "correcting" it?

Actually "kinetic humaniatarian interaction" is the preferred nomenclature these days.

If Bomber Harris was still alive, he'd be appointed secretary for foreign aid.

I always thought it a tremendous and incredible reflection on the British people that Harris was shunned by most of his peers for his actions during WW2. Not many countries would do that, they'd have classed him a hero.

@ Hector G

As a German citizen, my enthusiasm for Bomber Harris is somewhat muted. I do appreciate however that the man made no bones about his intentions and was brutally honest at all times.

Unlike Hitlery Clinton et al. Their bodycount is going up but they act as though their faeces smell of Chanel No5.

@ Nemisis

Syria is a long and faithful ally of Iran, courtesy of the Shiites residing there. That should explain the West's interest in fanning the flames of war there.

"Knocking away the props", they called that strategy in WWI.

Regarding Syria, I did a search for "Syrian Central Bank" and guess what popped up?

Syria May Switch to Ruble From Euro, Central Bank Governor Says

October 20, 2011, 8:51 AM EDT

Oct. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Syria may start using the Russian ruble for banking transactions if the European Union bans it from operations in euros, central bank Governor Adib Mayaleh said today.

As a first step, the Syrian central bank has begun posting the exchange rate for the ruble as well as the Chinese yuan on its daily bulletin, Mayaleh said in an interview with the Arabic-language Russia Today channel.

“Don’t forget that we can carry out operations in rubles,” Mayaleh said, according to a e-mailed transcript of the interview. “In the nearest future we will agree on parameters for switching to close cooperation with Russian banks and using the ruble for international settlements.”

The EU last week expanded sanctions against Syria in a bid to end a violent crackdown on demonstrators, freezing assets of organizations affiliated with the government.
At least 3,000 people have been killed in the seven-month uprising against President Bashar al-Assad, according to the United Nations.


Dontcha just love it? Fund a violent rebellion in a sovereign country and then get all bent out of shape when there is a backlash.

Rather like dreadful children goading two dogs into a frenzy ... then squealing when one of the dogs nips them.
What happens then? The grownups(?) come home, shoot the dogs -- and the kids get to sell the food bowls, collars and kennels, and buy ice-creams with the loot.

Everybody wins.

I've been learning some interesting stuff about New Zealand. Mainly, the Musket Wars between Maori tribes.

Long story short.

The History as taught today ...

The lefties in New Zealand (the usual suspects; Greens, History professors, the crusty sandal wearers) swear that the treaty of Waitangi was foisted on the poor, peaceful, pastoral, lyre-plucking ninnersimp Maori by the Eeeeevil British overlords (and settlers) who wanted to exploit and enslave them ... and do so to this very day -- this very minute, in fact. Familiar, no?

The reality ...

Maori population prior to 1807 (the beginning of the wars): 100-120 000
Maori population at the end of the wars: 50-60 000.

several attempts -- by Maori -- to ask Britain to declare New Zealand a colony, or protectorate ... to protect the Maori from:

A. The French. Yup.

In 1771 in the Bay of Islands, Maori kill Marion du Fresne and 24 of his party for ignoring wahi tapu when fishing.
In retaliation, du Fresne’s crew kill 250 Maori and torch their village.
Ever since, the Maori are afraid of the French.

B. Each other ... an example:

By 1820, the Maori v Maori Musket Wars have been raging for around 15 years. They will go on for about another 25 years.
There are around 500 battles in all.
In 1820, Ngapuhi chief Hongi Hika sails to England.
He asks the King for muskets. The King declines, but presents him with other gifts.

In Sydney on the way home, he trades all the King’s gifts for 300 muskets and gunpowder.
He then leads his tribe on a rampage south. They slaughter 20-60,000 of their defenceless countrymen, out of a total Maori population of 100-120,000. With up to half the population wiped out, it has been called the world’s worst holocaust.

In one attack on the Tamaki pa, Ngapuhi killed more men, women and children than are killed in the whole 27 years of the 1845-72 Land Wars.
By 1830 the southern tribes have armed themselves with muskets and are planning to head north for revenge.

As for the details, read on:-

Off the subject Savant - sorry - but it does pertain to a subject close to your heart - the possible collapse of the global financial system.

Have a read of this.

"It is with regret and unflinching moral certainty that I announce that Barnhardt Capital Management has ceased operations. After six years of operating as an independent introducing brokerage, and eight years of employment as a broker before that, I found myself, this morning, for the first time since I was 20 years old, watching the futures and options markets open not as a participant, but as a mere spectator."

"The reason for my decision to pull the plug was excruciatingly simple: I could no longer tell my clients that their monies and positions were safe in the futures and options markets – because they are not."

"Everything changed just a few short weeks ago. A firm, led by a crony of the Obama regime, stole all of the non-margined cash held by customers of his firm. Let’s not sugar-coat this or make this crime seem “complex” and “abstract” by drowning ourselves in six-dollar words and uber-technical jargon. Jon Corzine STOLE the customer cash at MF Global."

@ UN

Historian John Keegan had some excellent comments about Maori musket warfare and its ferocious nature.

Keegan observes that most warfare outside of Europe is based on evasion, ambush and grand ritualized gestures. Consequently, the casualty rate in the native's wars have often been slim, but conflicts tended to drag on for years on end.

Only in Europe, Japan and - strangely - New Zealand did a Clausewitzian no-holds-barred warrior culture devellop that prizes rapid, decisive strikes above all else (think clashing Phalanxes).

I always suspected that us Germans and the Japanese are twins separated at birth. But it never dawned on me that the Maoris are - with respect to warfare - so much like us as well.

So much for the gentle forrest people living in harmony with mother Gaia.

What price the new democracy? Goldman Sachs conquers Europe

While ordinary people fret about austerity and jobs, the eurozone's corridors of power have been undergoing a remarkable transformation.

... The ascension of Mario Monti to the Italian prime ministership is remarkable for more reasons than it is possible to count. By replacing the scandal-surfing Silvio Berlusconi, Italy has dislodged the undislodgeable. By imposing rule by unelected technocrats, it has suspended the normal rules of democracy, and maybe democracy itself. And by putting a senior adviser at Goldman Sachs in charge of a Western nation, it has taken to new heights the political power of an investment bank that you might have thought was prohibitively politically toxic.

This is the most remarkable thing of all: a giant leap forward for, or perhaps even the successful culmination of, the Goldman Sachs Project.


Even more interesting ...

Perhaps the most prominent ex-politician inside the bank is Peter Sutherland, Attorney General of Ireland in the 1980s and another former EU Competition Commissioner. He is now non-executive chairman of Goldman's UK-based broker-dealer arm, Goldman Sachs International, and until its collapse and nationalisation he was also a non-executive director of Royal Bank of Scotland. He has been a prominent voice within Ireland on its bailout by the EU, arguing that the terms of emergency loans should be eased, so as not to exacerbate the country's financial woes. The EU agreed to cut Ireland's interest rate this summer.

Hey, it's not all bad. You now have faces and names ... all that is needed, now, are addresses.

Cheers,
UN

PS: You'd expect better of an attorney-general ... or would you?

You are, Laddie. You are.

America and England are pretty much done. You can stick a fork in them.
The judification of Australia proceeds right now at full speed.

Unless the tribe hit some really big road-bumps in the next few years -- and I think they will -- it should be all over bar the shouting by 2050.

And I feel that that could go either way. We will either all be living in an Orwellian nightmare or playing out a scene from "The Road".

Or, on the other hand, the west could be scoured clean of nogs and mulattoes, and the middle east -- Israel included -- could be a glowing crater with a safety fence around it.

The graphics are very polished, professional and pretty, but the message is dreadful. For all our Irish readers, it is a serious indictment of your govt's handling of debt.

The other four PIGS however are even more extreme. You cannot believe how little debt as a percentage of GDP they had in 1993.

And how that debt has balloooned. This will not end well.

Too true. However ... sudden, grinding poverty can be an amazing inducement to learn very, very quickly.

After all when you and your family are reduced to living under a bridge or in a discarded refrigerator box, and you are fighting the local feral dogs for a bite to eat, somewhere, a young man's thoughts may lightly turn to who is to blame for all this shit.

The Bilderbergers are making the mistake of their shitty careers. They are creating a whole huge underclass with nothing -- nothing -- left to lose.

Out of such cloth is bloody revolution woven.

Ooooh, boy.

This is an extremely interesting article from VFR

http://www.amnation.com/vfr/archives/021089.html

In which we learn:-

TIME devoting its cover in international markets to a critical moment in Egypt's revolution--perhaps the most important global story this week--while offering Americans the chance to contemplate their collective navels (with a rather banal topic and supposition, to boot).

This is not an isolated incident, for perusing TIME's covers reveals countless examples of the publication tempting the world with critical events, ideas or figures, while dangling before Americans the chance to indulge in trite self-absorption.

Witness these stunning dichotomies: ...


Another chapter in the ongoing saga of the purposeful dumbing of America.

Even as far back as the sixties, a friend travelled to the US for several months and was amazed at how all, and I mean ALL, the US media pretended that the world stopped at the US Coastline.

My friend was astounded that US local news was extremely local ... pretty much down to municipal if not suburban levels ... while the equivalent of international news majored on happenings in New York and Washington DC as if they were foreign countries.

Oh, yes. And Vietnam -- which may as well have been on the moon.

Most people who listened to radio, listened to the 5000 watt stations who had a coverage of a few city blocks.

Interesting that in some respects, this has never changed, no?
