Note: This piece which is of extreme relevance to the US election campaign was originally published in July 2015.

On July 3, 2015, presidential aspirant Hillary Clinton addressed a hand-picked audience at a Dartmouth College campaign event. She lied calling Iran an “existential threat to Israel… I hope we are able to get a deal next week that puts a lid on (its) nuclear weapons program.”

Even if we do get such a deal, we will still have major problems from Iran. They are the world’s chief sponsor of terrorism.

They use proxies like Hezbollah to sow discord and create insurgencies to destabilize governments. They are taking more and more control of a number of nations in the region and they pose an existential threat to Israel.

We…have to turn our attention to working with our partners to try to reign in and prevent this continuing Iranian aggressiveness.

Fact: US and Israeli intelligence both say Iran’s nuclear program has no military component. No evidence whatever suggests Tehran wants one. Plenty indicates otherwise.

As a 2008 presidential aspirant, she addressed AIPAC’s annual convention saying:

The United States stands with Israel now and forever. We have shared interests….shared ideals….common values. I have a bedrock commitment to Israel’s security.

(O)ur two nations are fighting a shared threat” against Islamic extremism. I strongly support Israel’s right to self-defense (and) believe America should aid in that defense.

I am committed to making sure that Israel maintains a military edge to meet increasing threats. I am deeply concerned about the growing threat in Gaza (and) Hamas’ campaign of terror.

No such campaign exists. The only threats Israel faces are ones it invents.

Clinton repeated tired old lies saying Hamas’ charter “calls for the destruction of Israel. Iran threatens to destroy Israel.”

“I support calling the Iranian Revolutionary Guard what it is: a terrorist organization. It is imperative that we get both tough and smart about dealing with Iran before it is too late.”

She backs “massive retaliation” if Iran attacks Israel, saying at the time:

“I want the Iranians to know that if I’m president, we will attack Iran. In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.”

She endorses using cluster bombs, toxic agents and nuclear weapons in US war theaters. She calls them deterrents that “keep the peace.” She was one of only six Democrat senators opposed to blocking deployment of untested missile defense systems – first-strike weapons entirely for offense.

November 30 — A relief convoy formed in Russia’s southern Rostov region is ready to leave for the conflict-hit Ukraine’s Donbass region, Oleg Voronov, the deputy head of the Russian Emergencies Ministry National Crisis Management Center, told TASS on Sunday. “The convoy is expected to advance to the Russian-Ukrainian border this morning. It will head for Donbass after the customs formalities,” Voronov said adding that more than a hundred trucks would deliver more than 1,200 tonnes of relief aid to Donbass. The relief cargo includes food, including canned meat, fish and milk; building materials such as glass and rubberoid to restore the damaged buildings and materials for maintaining the operation of Donbas’s life-support facilities. The truck drivers who are going to deliver the relief aid have undergone a special course of driving in extreme conditions and are ready to fulfill the humanitarian mission.

“All the trucks are ready for the mission. All the vehicles have undergone technical maintenance. All of them are in order. They have been filled with fuel. No emergencies or unforeseen situations are expected to emerge on the way,” Voronov said. “This is the eighth relief convoy for Donbas. It started to be formed long in advance. Trucks from various parts of the country kept bringing various relief cargoes at the Donskoy rescue center from the Rostov, Voronezh, Tula, Ivanovo and Moscow regions for several days. About 60 trucks arrived from the Noginsk rescue center of the Russian Emergencies Ministry,” Voronov stressed.

Since mid-August, seven truck convoys have delivered almost 9,500 tonnes of cargoes, predominantly food, building materials and medical supplies, to Donbas.

Petro Poroshenko: Livin’ on a Prayer ?

Petro Poroshenko address to US Congress Full Speech

This address by Porkyshenko to the Senate and House of representatives is shocking.. This is not a convocation of New World order members at all, it is a mass murderer of thousands of Ukrainians and Donbass residents addressing and colluding with the Neocon imbeciles of the United Snakes, all of whom are using Porkyshenko as their instrument to knife Putin and to demonise Russia endlessly.

It is a convocation of the truly insane, applauding the totally psychotic..

Listen as Porkyshenko kisses the United Snakes ass, and ensures that ‘his’ Ukraine needs so desperately to become a ‘club member’ and how each Kiev Nazi citizen only wants to work hard for Ukraine’s future.. I have rarely seen a more sick-making video, and could not watch it in its entirety…

Maybe Yarosh will have him killed, and at least that will clear some of the filth away for a short while, until this travesty of a government can be de-Nazified (if that is at all possible)

.. It can only get much worse from here on..

I like it when he says 45 people are watching.. (he meant 45 million (less the tens of thousands that he’s already killed) but he’s much too stupid to remember the correct Ukrainian population statistics, which are meaningless anyway, to a hardened sociopath.

I am aghast and horrified at the reception the US, my own country, has given to mass murderer Poroshenko. American foreign policy is atrocious. And the EU policies are appalling as well. Below is a link to the Text adopted by the European Parliament today, in which Russia is villified without a shred of proof.

An excerpt from page 17:

C. whereas the ceasefire has been persistently violated by, mainly, regular Russian troops and separatists since Friday, 5 September 2014 in areas near Mariupol and Donetsk airport, with attempts to probe Ukraine’s defences in several other localities;

D. whereas in the previous weeks Russia increased its military presence on the territory of Ukraine and logistical support of the separatist militias through a steady flow of weapons, ammunition, armoured vehicles and equipment, mercenaries and soldiers in disguise, in spite of the EU’s calls to make every effort to de-escalate the situation; whereas since the beginning of the crisis the Russian Federation has amassed troops and military hardware on the border with Ukraine;

E. whereas Russia’s direct and indirect military intervention in Ukraine, including the annexation of Crimea, violates international law including the UN Charter, the Helsinki Final Act and the 1994 Budapest Agreement; whereas Russia continues to refuse the implementation of the Conventional Armed Forces in Europe Treaty (CFE);

US Journalist Foley Murdered by IS Militants 1 Year Ago – Assad Spokesperson

Topic: US Journalist Foley Executed by ISIS

 

MOSCOW, August 26 (RIA Novosti) – American journalist James Foley may have been murdered by Islamic State militants a year ago, The Daily Mail reported, citing Syrian President Bashar Assad’s official spokesperson, Bouthaina Shaaban.

“James Foley was first arrested by the Free Syrian Army and he was sold to ISIS [an earlier name for the IS]. You can check with the UN…James Foley was killed a year ago, not now, they only released the pictures now, but he was killed a year ago. We have definite information, the UN has the information,” Shaaban said as cited by The Daily Mail.

Last week, the shocking video of Foley being beheaded by the jihadist group was broadcasted all around the world. The jarring footage was entitled “The Message to America.” The journalist’s executioner, who spoke with a British accent, said Foley was killed because US President Barack Obama had ordered airstrikes against IS positions in Iraq.

On August 12, Foley‘s family received a letter from IS militants that warned of the journalist’s execution. The letter was published by GlobalPost, with the Foley family’s consent, to provide transparency and tell the journalist’s story in full.

On Monday, a team of experts said the video documenting the beheading may have been staged. However, there was no doubt that the reporter was killed, with the actual murder happening off-camera.

According to UK security services, the main suspect in Foley’s murder is west London rapper Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, also known by the IS militants as “Jihadi John.”

About 500 Britons are believed to be fighting for the IS in Syria, as well as several hundred individuals from the United States and Canada.

The Islamic State militant group was previously known as either the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). On June 29, after weeks of fighting in Iraq and Syria and the seizure of vast territories in the two countries, the group proclaimed itself a “caliphate” and changed its name to the Islamic State.

The group’s leader, Abu Bakr Baghdadi, has claimed religious authority over all Muslims globally.
