The Last Waltz

This was a top story on the Guardian earlier today…

This Guardian piece contains barely anything that’s factual, and is full of assertions and suspicions and ‘sources tell us’ and ‘our contacts’. It was apparently written by three people, one of whom is the mega Russophobe Luke Harding, and appears to be hastily thrown together. Talking of which, John Pilger has written an excellent piece for Media Lens in which he does a surgical job of explaining why mainstream media ‘journalists’ are now immoral cretins. But getting back to the Guardian article, it seems to have been written in response to this piece published by RT yesterday:

Generation being born now is the last to be free – Assange in last interview before blackout

I would argue with Julian Assange on this one, since many would say that most of humanity is already enslaved. It’s why we have total insanity, like the shooting down of a Russian military aircraft earlier this week whilst it was in Syrian airspace, killing all 15 of its crew. It’s claimed that an Israeli fighter jet shot down the Russian plane, although we still don’t know for sure what went on (a French warship was apparently also firing missiles at the time), and maybe we never will. Point is the Russian plane was there quite legally under international law, because the Russians have been invited by the Syrian government. Whereas the Israeli plane was not there legally, neither are the Americans, the Brits, the French and all the other forces who are quite illegally trying to bring down the Syrian government. The Syrians and Russians have almost won the war against ‘the rebels’. This shooting down of the Russian plane is just the latest of many provocations, to try and get Russia to respond, thus giving Uncle Sam & Co an excuse for a full-on military assault on the sovereign country of Syria. Thus far Russia has not responded to these provocations, and independent commentators generally fall into two camps on this: one camp says that by not responding to these provocations it will embolden Syria’s and Russia’s enemies, inviting further provocations, each time upping the ante until Russia is backed into a corner and will finally have to give a military response. The other camp says that Russia should now draw a line in the sand and respond strongly to this latest provocation, to prevent further provocations from happening. Either way, Syria is an absolute tinder box at the moment and could easily turn into World War Three. Peter Hitchens also thinks this, but doesn’t seem to realise that it’s the sort of newspaper that he works for that is part of the problem:

We’re on the brink of war… and nobody has noticed

Ever since the dawn of ‘civilisation’ the world has been ruled by a small group of people, people whose power came from the ownership of land, resources and the plebs. They were almost all sociopaths and psychopaths (people with these sort of personality disorders tend to bubble to the surface in society) who often called themselves aristos and royalty, and were basically a bunch of hoodlums who, whenever the opportunity arose, stole the assets of other hoodlums. Any plebs who objected to all of this were either imprisoned or exterminated (Jesus Christ being a good example); and so it went on over the millennia.

Then we got to World War One in which millions were butchered because of the leaps in technology. The ‘Great War’. The ‘Final War’, that is until shortly after we had the biggest slaughter in history: World War Two, which ended with the first use of atomic weapons on civilian targets. In the 70 or so years since then these weapons of war have grown even more fearsome (and not just nuclear weapons – MOAB being just one example), and we’re at the stage where the psychopaths have to be disarmed and put in an asylum, otherwise human civilisation will end. If major war breaks out between the squabbling psychopaths in the Middle East and elsewhere it will probably go nuclear very quickly (because they’re psychopaths – and a big problem at the moment with the batshit crazy neocons is that they think they can win a war with Russia). In the unlikely event that it didn’t go nuclear, a ‘conventional war’ would still destroy the planet: our modern civilisation has a huge amount of highly dangerous and toxic industry: as well as more than 400 nuclear power plants, there are nuclear storage facilities, oil refineries, chemical plants and all the rest of it. Much of this would be destroyed by a ‘conventional’ world war, leaving the planet completely poisoned. Hmm, probably better to go nuclear war straight away, to get it over with as soon as possible.

Julian Charles on his The Mind Renewed programme recently interviewed Peter Ford, former UK ambassador to Syria (2003-2006), for a wide-ranging conversation on propaganda, the UK mainstream media, and Syria. This is well worth a listen, but please note it was recorded a few months ago, before recent events in Syria…

    The FRENCH have keep their lips together.
    It seems extraordinarily unlikely that Syrian anti-aircraft fire, aimed at four Israeli fast bombers, would hit the RUSSIAN Ilyushin 20 non-armed spotter aircraft,
    22 miles off the coast.
    Much more likely The brand new FRENCH frigate

    fired at the Ilyushin to stop it reporting on the Israeli bombers run into Latakia.

    16-cell MBDA SYLVER A43 VLS for 16 MBDA Aster 15 missiles

  2. freddy says:

    Aster 15 equipped
    So the Aster 15 equipped French Frigate Auvergne,
    is armed with surface to air missiles, these are for taking out missiles or aircraft.

    Why havn’t the French said what they were aiming at?

  3. JOML says:

    Thanks, Rob, I saw the Guardian article but didn’t click, because I thought it would be crap. Your articles scare me, bringing me back to the nuclear worries of the 70’s… anyway, the 80s brought these guys…

    Last Episode, tonight of
    The Bodyguard

    “Extra bodyguards have been drafted in to protect the Labour Friends of Israel annual reception at the conference in Liverpool”
    Dame Hodge

    • freddy says:

      It would seem that Dame Hodge claims she is so concerned with death threats made to her for screaming about Corbyn’s perceived antisemite position, the Home Office is being asked to give her 24 hour protection, as given to
      The Home Secretary.
      This nonsense, is of course to continue the war on J.C.

  5. freddy says:

    This from April 2018
    “The French Navy deployed three multimission frigates on the mission: the Acquitaine, the Auvergne and the Languedoc.”

    What is the beef of France with Syria?
    I know Syria was for a time part of the French Empire, why does the French State still want to control events in Syria?

    What is their medium-long term objective?

    Just using the French military power to fire missiles at Syria is not a
    long term solution, unless they are using Syria for testing their weaponry.
    In the first French “salvo” in April, the missiles failed to fire.

    Did the Auvergne fire missiles at the Russian Ilyushin surveilance aircraft?
    It is quite a simple question.

  6. freddy says:

    I am a bit confused
    “The French Navy’s newest FREMM frigate FS Auvergne started her maiden operational deployment as she set sail from homeport in Toulon on August 18.

    The frigate will spend the next four months operating in the Indian Ocean where she will be put through her paces by her crew.”

    Does this suggest that The Auvergne was first deployed to Syria, before its first official deployment?

    It would seem that The Auvergne was deployed to SYRIA FOUR MONTHS BEFORE it first official deployment.

    Then diverted from its first official deployment to The Indian Ocean,
    to perform off SYRIA, where it has been said it deployed missiles at the same time the RUSSIAN Ilyushen was brought down with missiles.

    Perhaps the French Government might care to explain what they are up to in SYRIA?

    • freddy says:

      Russia begins delivering S-300 missile system to Syria as Russian FM says relations with US are at ‘all-time low’.

      Of course this is part of the twenty first century
      “Great Game”
      The real reason the S-300 are being deployed to Syria is to stop The West
      taking total control of Syria.
      So far The West/Nato has control of over 1/3 of Syria, with the White Helmets/Turkey in the North West and France/America and U.K. over Rojava
      and the enclave that covers the three meeting of Syria/Jordan/Iraq

      If France/Israel/U.K./America continue to rocket Syria, they will now target the sources of those rocket attacks.
      You have been warned.
      So, a more dangerous situation is coming to pass.

    The BBC are now saying that the Russian agents used a perfume container to spray Novichock on Skripal’s door knob.
    If you were going to give a woman a present of perfume who you wanted to die by Novichock
    just about believable.
    But why would you use a perfume bottle to spray Novichock on a door knob?
