A major effort is underway to begin yet another war of aggression against another mid-eastern country who refuses to submit to the global bankers or, to allow global oil cartels access to the country’s largest asset….oil.  Syria and Iran stand as the last two countries refusing to submit to global banking and a complete takeover of oil assets.  Syria is the last roadblock to Iran, and the federal corporation we call “government” is desperate to start blasting Iran.

Senator John McCain (R) was beating the war drums yet again on February 10, 2014,  to send us into another unnecessary and illegal war with a country whose leader is marked for destruction, although he did not mention who would be appointed to head up the new government in Syria when we got done destroying another oil rich nation that has not harmed us or threatened

McCain was quoted by ABC News as saying:

“When the images and horrors of this conflict occasionally show up on our television screens, the impulse of many Americans is to change the channel,” McCain said on the Senate floor. “But we must not look away. We must not avert our eyes from the suffering of the Syrian people – for, if we do, we ignore, we sacrifice that which is most precious in ourselves: our ability to empathize with the suffering of others, to share it, to acknowledge through our own sense of revulsion that what is happening in Syria today is a stain on  the collective conscience of moral peoples everywhere.”

Basically, our impulse to change the channel comes from the incessant lies, deceptions, frauds, and continual misinformation fabricated to convince the American public of some fictional threat that can be used to affect policy and the continued efforts to take over the mid east.  All of this issuing from the mouths of government officials who all have their fingers in the cookie jar.

Please….just shut up Mr. McCain

That McCain could have referenced empathy and suffering without acknowledging the suffering of the Iraqi’s, the Afghans, the Lybians, to name just a few…..caused by our government’s meddling and interference over the last decade was decidedly, lacking in empathy.  He never mentioned the growing rate of miscarriages, deformities and the shortened life span, the result of the intentional use of depleted uranium, in Iraq.  Nor did he seem to express any empathy or concern for the estimated 1.5 million people who have died in the last decade as a result of our own actions as we relentlessly attacked and destroyed Iraq in attempt to get control of the oil and to establish US bases from which other wars could be launched against the few remaining mid-eastern countries who have refused to do our bidding.

I am still, after years of watching, listening, reading and researching, stunned at the ease with which politicians and officials of all types, will  stare right into the camera and tell one lie after another.  And they will continue to lie even when they know that YOU know they are lying.

(Q). How many children were killed in our rampage across Iraq as we began the march to Iran?

McCain alluded to the threat of nuclear weapons, but for some reason never made mention of the Aril 22, 1975 memo is listed in its entirety below.  The National Security Decision Memorandum  (NSDM 292), is included in this article as a reference of government documents showing our willingness to create nuclear plants, to build them, supply them and have them up and running as far back as the early 1970‘s, with Iran.  The point is, no matter what the government is saying now, there has been an ongoing effort to give nuclear technology and capability to Iran for the last 40 years or more, as long as they bought from us and sold for us and our corporations, these same technologies.

Apparently, Syria and the obstacle it represents to the total control of the middle east and its oil, has become problematic.  How can we ever possibly hope to overthrow Iran, plunder its assets and commit to another war that includes genocide, if we cannot topple the Syrian government first, even if by making spurious allegations for the umpteenth time; allegations that have become redundant as we attack one nation after another.

McCain also showed the viewers images of mangled bodies claiming these were victims of the Assad government.  We have no way of knowing whether this is true and these actually were photos from Syria, or if these were more recycled photos from the damage we did in Iraq.

When the attempt to incite war with Syria was first promoted to the public, recycled pictures from Iraq, circa 2003, were used as “evidence”.

From the UK Telegraph:

“Photographer Marco di Lauro said he nearly “fell off his chair” when he saw the image being used, and said he was “astonished” at the failure of the corporation to check their sources.

The picture, which was actually taken on March 27, 2003, shows a young Iraqi child jumping over dozens of white body bags containing skeletons found in a desert south of Baghdad.


So tired of being lied to……….

For all we know, if Syrians were killed by lethal gases, if the pictures do in fact represent a tragedy there, we do not know and will never be told who actually committed the crime.  It will be decades from now that the truth will come out, if it ever does.

In the meantime, I believe that our military has given enough of their blood for the greed of corporations and the aspirations some have about controlling the entire world.  I think it unfortunate that McCain never expressed any concern for our fallen soldiers, for those who have come home irreparably damaged, and the toll all of these illegal wars have taken on the country.  neither did he express any empathy or concern for the lack of care for our returning troops.

This statement by McCain would have been more genuine had he changed a few words in it:

to acknowledge through our own sense of revulsion that what is happening in Syria in America today is a stain on the collective conscience of moral peoples everywhere.” 

This would have at least had the ring of truth to it.

SECl:;REl’ /C(I)S April 22, 1975 National Security Decision Memorandum 292

TO: The Secretary of Defense The Deputy Secretary of State The Director, Arms Control and Disarmament Agency

The Administrator, Energy Research and Development Administration

SUBJECSUBJECT: U. S. -Iran Nuclear Cooperation

The President has reviewed the study directed by NSSM 219 and has noted the comments and recommendations of the agencies. The

President has decided that in negotiating an Agreement on Cooperation in the Civil Uses of Atomic Energy with the Government of Iran, the

U. S. shall:

Permit U. S. material to be fabricated into fuel in Iran for use in its own reactors and for pass-through to third countries with whom we have Agreements.

Agree to set the fuel ceiling at a level reflecting the approximate number of nuclear reactors planned for purchase from U. S. suppliers. We would, as a fallback, be prepared to increase the ceiling to cover Iran’s full nuclear requirement under the proviso that the fuel represents Iran’s entitlement from their proposed investment in an enrichment facility in the U. S. Any additional entitlement could be disposed of by Iran without importing the material into that country through sales from the United States to appropriate third countries with whom the U. S. has bilateral Agreements for Cooperation. (emphasis, mine)

Continue to require U.S. approval for reprocessing of U.S. supplied fuel, while indicating that the establishment of a multinational reprocessing plant would be an important factor favoring such approval. As a fallback, we could inform the Government of Iran that we shall be prepared to provide our approval for reprocessing of U. S. material in a multinational plant in Iran if the country supplying the reprocessing technology or equipment is a full and active participant in the plant, and holding open the possibility of U. S. participation. The standard provision requiring mutual agreement as to safeguardability shall apply. An expression of U. S. willingness to explore cooperation in establishing such a facility at an appropriate time should Iran so desire, may be made.
