Is Iran up to monkey business?


Once again we see that the “Arab Spring” has been controlled by what I see as dark forces. In my analysis regarding Libya I have constantly pointed to the fact that Iran, Russia and China were all on the side of Gadhafi. When the revolutionaries managed to overcome Gadhafi and his mercenary forces, it was a colossal blow to each of those powers. China and Russia took a very hostile stance right from the git go, and they have the same hostile approach with regard to Syria.

However, my interest here is in Iran and their monkey business in other Middle East nations, especially in Syria and Bahrain. The Bahrain situation is one which is interesting because it clearly involves Saudi Arabia, and I might add that it is the classic Sunni vs. Shia contest. No matter how you look at the situation in the Middle East, there is one constant and it has lasted for hundreds of years – it is not new. That situation is Sunni vs. Shia. In Iraq, when Saddam Hussein was in charge, the minority Sunni had the upper hand. (I will return to Iraq because I have some concerns about their leader and his recent comments).

Bahrain was one of the many Arab countries that had seen “spring” protests. The ruler of Bahrain called in Saudi Arabia who gave assistance in crushing the rebellion. Without a doubt there were some violations of human rights during the putting down of the rebellion. I have no doubt that the Sunni do not want to give power to the Shia in the population. As usual though, we need to know more about those who were trying to stir up trouble in the first place. It looks like Iran was behind the trouble in Bahrain. However, at the moment this is speculation.

This morning a bomb went off near the British Embassy in Bahrain. Now this should prick up some interest, because this kind of activity in Bahrain is unusual. On the whole the people of the Kingdom of Bahrain have been accepting towards the British and other Western powers. There is no animosity. At the same time I suspect that if push comes to shove, and Israel decided to take out the nuclear reactors in Iran, then Bahrain would be one of the Middle East states that would do the nudge nudge wink wink.  Again I am guessing, but I have no reason to suspect that Bahrain would be openly hostile in such a circumstance.

This report from the UK Telegraph does some speculating about whether or not Iran was behind the bomb blast in Bahrain. Britain is of course on the nose with Iran and the Quds had already organized the sacking of the British Embassy in Tehran. They have tried to claim that the “students” were acting in solidarity with the Occubaggers but I think that we can discount that as a reason.

Let’s look a little more closely at what else is going on: Iran is close to having a nuclear bomb. We are trying to prevent them from getting to that stage. In the shadows we have Russia, China and North Korea helping Iran to reach their goal. Now that el Baradei (Mr Potato Head) is no longer in charge of the Atomic Commission, a report has been released setting out the truth about what is happening inside of Iran. The British, France, Germany and other European countries have decided to implement tougher sanctions, with good old Østupid dragging the chain and trying to stop the implementation of these sanctions. (Even Senator Menendez (NJ – D) is getting up the nose of White House officials over their obstruction on this subject). The fact that the Quds organized the sacking of the British Embassy more or less points a finger in their direction in regard to this latest attack upon a British Embassy.

Perhaps Iran perceives that David Cameron and Nick Clegg are weak, but I am not sure. However, if that is how the GrandPoohbah has sees Cameron then he is bound to be disappointed.

Iran is misbehaving and this time there is a lot at stake, including the stability of the Middle East. We have no idea as to whether or not the Muslim Brotherhood will be mild in Egypt – they could keep their word, remain moderate and not work with the Al Nur party since Salafists and Sunni kind of do not go together. Muslim Brotherhood gained popularity because they had worked with the poor in Egypt. People identify with them!!  Yet it is not Egypt that has to worry, but it is Saudi Arabia and ultimately who gets control of Mecca. On top of that Ahmahnutjob and the Grand Poohbah have been trying to cause a world wide situation, their version of Armageddon, in order to hasten the arrival of the 12th Iman. This is really what is at stake. It is a part of the powerplay to create the world wide caliphate with the Grand Poohbah in control.

the death of OBL does not change the F grade given to Østupid for his foreign policy failures


Yes, it is true, I am a very harsh critic of the Østupid regime.  There are few amongst them that deserve any accolades. However, I will give special mention to Hillary Clinton, Leon Panetta, David Petreus and John Brennan for their persistence in going after OBL. They deserve the accolades for the death of OBL, not Østupid.

In the week since it was announced that OBL was dead, there has been so much spin coming out of the White House that it has been enough to make a person go dizzy. The stories have been changing daily, and there has been a lack of consistency about those stories. Even that story about waiting 16 hours before giving the final go ahead sounds like cow dung. It is a story that does not show decisiveness, but instead shows virtual cowardice when it comes to facing the realities of a war situation. It sounds like the truth lies somewhere between the Ulsterman report on the matter, and the cow dung fodder that came out of the press. I have a hard time imagining that the fey pResident could hammer his fist on a table to give the go ahead on something this important, and then head off to parties and playing golf, whilst it is all going down.

The fallout from the action is still very nuclear at the present time. The relationship between the USA and Pakistan is deteriorating rapidly. What is worse, the Pakistanis have released the name of the top CIA agent in Pakistan, which has put his life in danger. This is partly caused by the spin that has come from the White House, as well as the refusal to release the pictures of the body of OBL or of the video that showed him being fed to the sharks.

There should have been a very real psychological advantage in showing those photographs, but the image-obsessed pResident has told the world that he is “afraid” of any ensuing outrage. Well, the fact is the outrage is going to happen anyway, and why should the USA be concerned about the sensibilities of a bunch of very brain deficient individuals who go crazy over the slightest thing?

However, it is not just the handling of finding OBL that keeps that grade as an F, but it is the way in which he has handled other Middle East issues.  For example, when the Iranian regime crushed the protests of the people with bloodshed, Østupid said nothing until prompted by Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy. If it had not been for those two, Østupid would have totally ignored the human rights abuses in Iran. It was the death of Neda that made a difference, but the difference was short lived. The notion of extending a hand has been proved to be fruitless, and on the other hand it has shown to the Iranians that the USA has been weakened by having this man as pResident.

Then there is the attitude over the uprising in Egypt. The strategic concerns for the region were overridden out of some other underlying beliefs that Muslim Brotherhood be allowed to control Egypt… oh what a web we weave!!! Now it seems that the Salafists are on the loose in Egypt and the uprisings that are about to take off again are going to get extremely bloody unless the army is willing to stop the slaughter of the Copts. Muburak at least kept these Salafists (allied to AQ) under control. The demands that the pResident made to Muburak to step down were totally ill-considered.  Tunisia is also troubled, but it is a far more settle nation for the time being.

Since there have been several uprisings, and with brutal crackdowns by the regime in question, this leaves open further accusations of inconsistency in policy. As an example here, look at both Libya and Syria. I do see the differences in that Syria was slower to crack down on the population, and in Syria the situation is becoming more and more bloody. It has been the slow build-up. On the other hand, in Libya, Gadhafi planned his reaction in advance of any protests. At first Østupid made some noises, but only after Sarkozy and Cameron were insisting that action had to be taken. The UN no-fly zone enforcement is justified in Libya because Daffy Duck was bombing his own people, pretending that he was combating AQ elements. I have discussed at length that much of the claims about the involvement of AQ in Libya has been exaggerated, and is mostly coming from regime propaganda. This does not mean that some AQ associated individuals are not present, it just means that the vast majority are not associated with AQ, and that they are fighting for their lives against a wounded bull. That being said, the issue here is the manner in which Østupid stepped back, leaving a gap that had not been filled in the mission to take out Daffy’s means of killing Libyans. The attack on Misrata is outrageous and it needs to be stopped.  It needs strong leadership from the US and instead, the leadership has been totally wimpy. I commend both Sarkozy and Cameron, and I give a special mention to the Turk Erdogan for their efforts in attempting to protect the citizens of Misrata and Zintan.

To these concerns about Libya, I add here that the pResident had plenty of time to go to the Congress before the UN resolution, and to put to Congress the possible actions that would be required. The fact that he was spending his time on vacation, playing golf and giving parties, indicates that he is not serious in being a leader of the world. The fact is that without Congressional approval, the participation of the US in the Libyan action is not illegal, but certainly illicit. 

For these reasons… and counting…. an F grade on foreign policy and international relations is still very appropriate.

Breaking News – ICC about ready to issue arrest warrant for Daffy Duck


Ah I wonder what Warner Bros would say if it really was a reference to their cartoon character. To explain, from the beginning I have likened Gadhafi to Daffy Duck because of all of his flapping about when he has gone on his rants and ramblings on public television. His “zenga zenga” rant is the main reason for using Daffy Duck, since most would know that the cartoon character exhibits many of these same traits…..

I just saw this post at NEWS.com.au:

THE International Criminal Court (ICC) will announce today plans to issue arrest warrants for Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, his son Saif al Islam and several pro-government officials, according to a report obtained by Al Arabiya.

ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo will present the report to the UN Security Council along with an update on his investigation in Gaddafi’s attacks on civilians.

While it was unclear whether the Security Council would need to request International Criminal Court judges to issue the arrest warrants, sources close to Mr Ocampo said it was the next logical step.

“From May 2 to 5, the ICC prosecutor will be in New York … [and] on May 4, the prosecutor will report to the Council on progress in the investigation regarding the situation in Libya where he opened an investigation into alleged crimes against humanity and war crimes,” Mr Ocampo’s office said.

On March 3 Mr Ocampo launched his investigation against Gaddafi and his sons for crimes committed against humanity in Libya.

Please make sure you read the link provided in the actual report. It is from Al Arabiya and it provides more information. Mussa Kussa could also face arrest for his role in the unrest. It also says that investigations will be ongoing with other parties being investigated for crimes.
 
 

Daffy’s desperate propaganda


When a small group of people decided to protest the Gadhaffi regime in Benghazi during February 2011, having been inspired by protests in Egypt and Tunisia, they did not expect that Daffy goon snipers would fire upon them.  After the first were killed, more people joined the protests, until eventually thousands joined in… and then they managed to storm the Benghazi fort.  At this juncture they were joined by an army unit plus the interior minister who had defected to their side. It was the beginning.

The response to those initial protests in Benghazi was a springing up of protests in Zintan, Zawiyah, Tripoli, Misrata, Brega etc. etc. The protest movement was widespread. The response from the Daffy goons was deadly.  The uprisings in Tripoli were put down by the posting of foreign mercenary soldiers who were used as snipers – move outside the door, and get killed!!  The Daffy goons moved in on Zawiyah and the people held them off as long as possible. The situation was extremely deadly. This is the scene that was repeated in several regions in Libya. The protests were met with deadly force.

The UN became involved at the point where Daffy Duck had stated that he would show no mercy to the people of Benghazi, and he meant what he was saying. Just in the nick of time resolution 1973 was passed and the French  began the action against the Daffy goons, saving the people of Benghazi from further violence to their human rights. The UN has teams investigating the human rights violations in Libya and by the end of the investigation I suspect that many in the regime will face a trial in the world court for their crimes.

The action of the NATO forces has put a dampener on Daffy’s attempts to put down the protests. Daffy has been prepared to lie, and to get his allies to use propaganda against the NATO forces in an effort to cling to power. He has attempted to use the African Union, Chavez, Russia, China, India and other useful idiots in order to get out his propaganda message. It is always the same one: he pretends that NATO is killing civilians. Not once has the Daffy claims been verified. Even the statement coming from the Vatican was based upon false information that was planted by the regime. It was the alleged killing of civilians during NATO strikes that set off the Russians, and gave the leader of the Arab Union a bit of a hissy fit (he has since withdrawn opposition to the attacks once the record was set straight). He has been attempting to use Chavez to make claims that he is attempting to negotiate peace – why should anyone believe the lying hound Chavez? He tried to use the African Union to make peace negotiations, but of course these negotiations were rebuffed – Gadhaffi has to leave. He sent his Deputy Foreign Minister on a mission to Europe and that ended up with Italy deciding to send aircraft to participate in the NATO strikes.

Daffy Duck’s goons have been shelling the civilian areas of Misrata. Hundreds of civilians have died at the hands of the Daffy goons. He had Misrata cut off with the situation being quite desperate, but in the end the goons were pushed back sufficiently for the rebels to retain control of the city, as well as maintaining the control of the port. There have been some evacuations from Misrata, and yes, some equipment has filtered into the town.  However, it is the use of cluster bombs and now the mining of the waters around the port of Misrata that should make people recoil in horror over what Daffy Duck has been doing to his own people in Libya.

These deadly actions by Daffy Duck has not stopped the propaganda from flowing. There has been a never ending flow of propaganda. At first there were promises of a ceasefire. Oh yes, did I mention that when NATO threatened action Daffy declared a ceasefire, and promptly ignored it by firing upon Benghazi? This has been repeated several times in the past few weeks. Now comes the latest in propaganda ploys from Daffy Duck:

He wants to negotiate yet another worthless ceasefire. He wants NATO to stop the bombing.  Here is the latest in a string of lying propaganda from the terrorist Moammar Gadhaffi:

“(Libya) is ready until now to enter a ceasefire … but a ceasefire cannot be from one side,” Mr Gaddafi said, speaking from behind a desk and aided by reams of papers covered in what appeared to be hand-written notes.

“We were the first to welcome a ceasefire and we were the first to accept a ceasefire … but the crusader NATO attack has not stopped,” he said.

“The gate to peace is open.”

What a lying piece of the proverbial mushroom fodder. Truly, this is the man who claims a ceasefire, and then keeps firing. It is not NATO that has refused to stop it is Moammar Gadhaffi who has been stalling for time in order to implement his next diabolical attack upon his own people who will not stop.  The man is getting more and more desperate and he is sounding extremely desperate. He blames NATO, but NATO was not responsible for those mines that have been found in the waters of Misrata!!!!! The mining of the port of Misrata is against International Law, something that is not respected by the terrorist and terrorist sponsor, Moammar Gahdaffi.

The BBC, reporting on the same story gives a slightly different and chilling picture regarding the latest propaganda move from Daffy Duck:

State media later implied that Nato strikes had targeted Col Gaddafi while he was speaking.

Meanwhile, Libya said it will not allow any more sea deliveries to the besieged western city of Misrata.

Government spokesman Moussa Ibrahim also said rebels in the city would be given four days to lay down their arms in return for an amnesty.

If they continued to fight they would face “total fire” he said.

His comments came after Nato said forces loyal to Col Gaddafi had been trying to lay mines off Misrata.

These threats are exactly like the “no mercy” threats uttered against Benghazi. Don’t talk to me about the possibility of some individuals been remotely connected to AQ who are now fighting to save the lives of their townspeople, their families and even their own lives.  The freedom fighters are fighting for their lives, and they are fighting the real terrorist who has used obsfucation like it is a fine art. After all, who do you think started those AQ rumours? It was Daffy Duck who was giving a false impression about those who had been protesting.

 You will find more disturbing stories about how the Daffy Duck regime is treating people in Tripoli here.

Not just a useful idiot – he is a %*#^ing idiot


Who might I mean when I call him a f’ing idiot? (sorry air just turned blue) I mean none other than that other useless weak former POTUS Jimmah Carter. It seems that Jimmah took himself a trip to North Korea for talks, as a member of a team of “elites of the world”. They did not get an interview with Kim Jong-Il but they did get a message that blames both South Korea and the USA for human rights abuses against North Korea. Did you hear that?

Now let’s try getting some facts straight because Jimmah is really nothing more than a useful idiot when it comes to dealing with these tyrants and dictators. He learned nothing from his gross mistakes over Iran. Remember it was Carter who allowed Ayatollah Khomenei to return from exile in Paris to Tehran, and in fact it was Carter who benignly thought that having this “religious” man in charge of Iran was a good thing. (No wonder the air turns blue when I think about what this idiot allowed to happen in Iran). 

Now it seems that Jimmah wants to dictate to South Korea over North Korea, and to accept the false accusation of human rights abuses being levelled by that malevolent dictator Kim Jong-IL. He does not seem to understand that North Korea chose to build up arms, rather than provide food for the people who might or might not be starving. This is the real crux of the issues that should be raised. If North Koreans are starving, why is Kim Jong-Il wasting so much money on building up nuclear weapons? Feeding the people should come first. 

Any blockade that might exist is the fault of North Korea, but as is typic of these dictators, King Jong-Il is trying to blame South Korea for his own attitudes. In fact Kim Jong-Il is trying to cause a new war between South and North Korea. These elites who are running around the world sniffing their own odour and thinking that they are “king mushroom fodder” need a good dose of reality because they are going to aid and abet a new war through their enabling of dictators such as Kim Jong-il. Somebody should tell Jimmah to just shut up and go sit in the corner!!
