Global war on "terrorism"
In 1980s, the United States and Israel created the concept of "international terrorism" to discredit the national liberation movements, accusing them of being tentacles of the Soviet beast. After the September 11 attacks, responsibility for quashing terrorism was taken away from the police and shifted to the military domain. For the Anglo-American ruling class, the "war against terrorism" had been envisaged as a means of affirming its control over trade routes (free maritime and air circulation), but it served the Bush administration and the Zionist movement to cloak their mistimed colonial adventures (Palestine, Afghanistan, Irak).
The same concept is used by the West to justify the setting up of an Orwellian surveillance society and by the Shangai Cooperation Organisation (Russia, China) to stymie the intrusion of the nomadic populations of Central Asia and to stabilise them by force.
Memorandum to the Foreign Affairs Select Committee
Prime Minister’s Response to the Foreign Affairs Select Committee’s Second Report of Session 2015-16: The Extension of Offensive British Military Operations to Syria Introduction
Whether or not to use military force is one of the most significant decisions that any government takes. The need to do so most often arises because of a government’s first duty: the responsibility to protect its citizens.
Decisions to use force are not to be (...)
President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Ladies and gentlemen, good evening.
The President of France and I have just completed substantive talks, which were held in a trust-based, constructive tone. Naturally, we gave the greatest attention to the issue of jointly combating international terrorism.
The barbaric attack on Russia’s airplane over the Sinai Peninsula, the horrible events in Paris and the terrorist attacks in Lebanon, Nigeria and Mali have left many people dead, including hundreds (...)
Several journalists who were participating in a media tour organised by the Australia/Israel and Jewish Affairs Council (AIJAC) were able to visit the Ziv Medical Centre, in Zefat (North Israël). The hospital has at its disposal a service specialising in war traumatology. It is government-run and linked to the Israeli Defence Forces. In this context, it treats Syrian « refugees ».
While the rest of the group - the assistant chief editor of the Daily Telegraph, Ben English ; the journalist (...)
Qatar has bought sophisticated military equipment from Ukraine on behalf of ISIS. The operation took place in late September 2015, just before the Russian military action against the terrorist organization. It was approved by the US embassy in Doha. Officially, the new emir is not involved in the war in Iraq and Syria.

This is almost turning into a farce, albeit a tragic one: since 9/11 there has been one single terrorist attack in which the authors, who are supposed to try and remain unidentified, have not somehow left ID documents behind. For sociologist Jean-Claude Paye, what might look like repetitive asininity must be interpreted as a rhetorical device used by those in power to achieve sideration. It is because the official version is absurd that we may not, must not question it.
Flags fly at half-mast in NATO countries for "France’s 9/11," while President Obama announces to the media: "We will provide you accurate information about who is responsible."
They needn’t wait. It is already clear.
The umpteenth massacre of innocents was caused by the series of geopolitical cluster bombs, detonated according to a precise strategy.
It has been put into play since the U.S. won the confrontation with the Soviet Union and appointed itself "the only state with truly global (...)

The Kremlin has announced that during a meeting concerning the crash of the Russian Airbus 321, which occurred on the 31st October 2015 above the Sinaï desert, Alexandre Bortnikov, the head of the FSB, (Russian Federal Security Service), reported that his services had found traces of a foreign-made explosive .
The attack, since that is what it was, claimed 224 victims.
According to the specialists, the improvised device, with a force equivalent to 1 kilogram of TNT, exploded on board, (...)
The Army Health Services have received instructions to distribute atropine sulphate, the known counter-poison used in chemical attacks, to the different hospital emergency services.
The decision was made following the terrorist attack in Paris on the 13th November 2015.

Nearly ten years after the Mumbai attacks, is still not known with certainty who sponsored them. Just do we know now that the victims have not all been chosen at random but a group of Indo-US personalities were particularly targeted. Although former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was no longer on the scene, his team still resident in one of the hotels attacked. This case should encourage us not to make hasty conclusions about the attacks in Paris.
We condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the heinous terrorist attacks in Paris on 13 November and in Ankara on 10 October. They are an unacceptable affront to all humanity. We extend our deepest condolences to the victims of terrorist attacks and their families. We reaffirm our solidarity and resolve in the fight against terrorism in all its forms and wherever it occurs.
We remain united in combatting terroris The spread of terrorist organizations and significant rise globally in acts (...)

The reactions of some Atlanticists figures, from the United States, France, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, when Russia bombed the Syrian branch of Al Qaeda —the Al-Nosra Front— speak for themselves. Those that these leaders refer to as "moderate rebel" actually belong to registered groups on the list of terrorist organizations by the United Nations.

The conflict which has plunged Syria into mourning is not a war opposing different communities, but a war between two projects for society.
On one side, a modern, secular Syria, in other words, a society which is respectful of ethnic, religious, and political diversity ; on the other, the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood, who, since their creation in 1928, have been seeking to re-establish the Ottoman caliphate by means of jihad.
The Muslim Brotherhood claim that they wish to defend and (...)
The intervention of the CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organisation) against terrorism in Iraq and Syria may be the beginning of a world order based on the cooperation and defence of civilian populations, or, on the contrary, a period of East-West confrontation in which the West openly supports terrorism. Contrary to popular belief, this military deployment is aimed less at defending Iraq and the Syrian Arab Republic than the members of the CSTO themselves. It is therefore not negotiable. The debates in the UNO General Assembly and Security Council on the 30th September will reveal the response of Washinton and its allies. In any case, nothing will ever be the same.
Meeting in Dushanbe (Tadjikistan) on the 15th September 2015, the heads of the member states of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO) strongly denounced terrorism in Iraq and Syria, particularly that of the phoney Islamic Emirate (« Daesh »).
The heads of the member states of the CSTO stated that their organisation could now deploy under the auspices of the UNO, in the same way as NATO. They agreed to coordinate their interventions at the UNO General Assembly at the end of (...)
A campaign has been launched by the opponents of the agreement between the United States and Iran accusing Russia of intending to annex Syria by military force, as it had done in Crimea. In reality, Moscow is applying UNO resolutions and preparing an operation against the jihadists, and will go ahead with or without the consent of Washington. Already, the White House has organised a joint operation by the international Coalition and Syria. France is attempting to jump on the bandwagon, hoping at the same time to sabotage the US / Iran reconciliation.
According to The Daily Beast, General David Petraeus (ex-director of the CIA and current chief analyst for the KKR investment fund) is attempting to convince the Obama administration to recycle elements of Al-Qaïda to fight Daesh .
The online news outlet interprets this proposition as the continuation of what General Petraeus had already done in Iraq in 2007 : in order to combat the Sunni rebellion, he engaged its young supporters, including members of al-Qaïda.
In an interview with CNN, (...)
The Counter-Terrorism Centre of the CIA and the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command have launched a vast operation which aims at eliminating the principal heads of the Islamic Emirate (« Daesh ») in Syria, reveals the Washington Post .
The newspaper notes that the CIA and the Pentagon kill the leaders of Daesh by bombing them with drones. It observes that this new CIA mission seems to contradict President Obama’s precedent directives, which state that the CIA should concentrate on (...)
While the British Justice has established the support of the MI6 to ISIS, the British government has warned his Indian counterpart about a possible attack by ISIS. Shelley Kasli, the editor of the new Great Game India quaterly review, returned here on the use of terrorism by the colonial powers.
A profound and significant change has just occurred in the Levant – the Russian army has begun to engage against terrorism in Syria. Although Russia has been absent from the international scene since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, and although it is moving with care, it has just created a Russo-Syrian Commission, has begun supplying weapons, sharing intelligence, and sending advisors. All of this is more or less coordinated with the White House.

In response to the shelling by the Turkish Army of the Kurdish population in Turkey, Iraq and Syria, the PKK (a clandestine Marxist-Leninist party) has organised for the protection of the population and proclaimed the autonomy of Dersim.
Turkey has called this region Tunceli (« Hand of bronze ») since the genocide of the Christians, who were mostly Armenian. Since 2012, it has been placed under the authority of Governor Hakan Yusuf Guner.
On the 20th July (...)
While Ankara, under pressure from Washington, gave up the idea of attacking the Kurds of the YPG in Syria , it handed over six wounded Syrian Kurdish prisoners to Al-Qaïda (al-Nusra Front), the YPG spokesperson said. The men are Ahmed Şêrko, Omer Qadir, Rêber Seyho, Ehmed Helûm, Cemal Ehmed and Beşîr Mihemed.
They will probably be executed by the terrorist organisation.
Officially, Turkey has no relations with Al-Qaïda, but
Turkish Justice has demonstrated that while President Erdoğan was (...)
President Erdoğan has set up a secret hospital on Turkish territory at Şanlıurfa, outside of the combat zones, to look after wounded Daesh jihadists.
The town also shelters a secret al-Qaïda training camp .
The wounded are transported in military vehicles by the MIT (Turkish secret services).
The supervision of the hospital is coordinated by Sümeyye Erdoğan, the daughter of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan (photo) , who is also responsible for the international relations of the AKP (...)
In 2012, jihadists acquired land in Bosnia-Herzegovina, at Gornja Maoča, Ošve and Dubnica, to set up training camps under the command of Nusret Imamović.
Originally affiliated with al-Qaïda, Nusret Imamović has become the number three of its Syrian branch, the al-Nusra Front. Today he has joined the Islamic Emirate (Daesh), and the Bosnian jihadist communities have followed in his footsteps.
The Bosnian jihadists are divided into two groups :
On the one hand, the ex-fighters of Oussama Ben (...)
Contrary to their public declarations, the United Kingdom and France are participating in the anti-Daesh Coalition bombing of Daesh in Syria.
The two European states pretend that until now, they have only been implicated in Iraq. However, a document from the UK Minister of Defence, obtained by the association Reprieve, attests to the engagement of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces. And the intervention of the Minister of Defence, Michael Fallon, responding to opposition criticism in the House of (...)
The North Atlantic Council met today at Turkey’s request to hold consultations under Article 4 of the Washington Treaty, which states that “the parties will consult whenever, in the opinion of any of them, the territorial integrity, political independence, or security of any of the parties is threatened.”
Turkey requested the meeting in view of the seriousness of the situation after the recent terrorist attacks, and to inform Allies of the measures it is taking.
