The Iranian city of Chabahar is all set to host a Chinese-built industrial town as part of China’s role to develop Iran’s sole ocean port.
.
A technical team of CMI of China visited Chabahar in Iran’s southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan on Tuesday for the launch of the Chinese industrial town project, according to IRNA.
.
An Iranian official at the Chabahar Free Trade Zone told the news agency that the trip follows CMI managers’ last year visit to Iran where the two sides inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on the construction of an industrial town there.
.
The official said the Chinese have already decided on a location for the project and that they will be developing the free-trade zone into a mega port through phased construction.
.
Chabahar Free Trade Zone is on the coast of the Gulf of Oman. It is the closest point of Iran to the Indian Ocean and Iran has devised serious plans to turn it into a transit hub for immediate access to markets in the northern parts of the Indian Ocean and Central Asia.
.
The exact scope of China's planned investment in Chabahar is unclear yet as the port is largely planned to be developed through a much-awaited effort by India.
Back in 2014, Iran and India signed an MoU to jointly develop the port and both sides agreed to allow New Delhi to lease two docks at the port for a period of 10 years - a move meant to cut India's crude oil and urea transportation costs by around 30 percent.
.
India is also relying on the prospects of establishing rail links from Chabahar to Afghanistan and thereon to Central Asia.

Iran could be license producing the T-90

Iran could start license production in 2050 once the Israelis in Russia decide the tank is worthless, and out of date.

Russia says it is ready to produce T-90 tanks in Iran.
Russia says it is ready to produce T-90 tanks in Iran.
Russia announced on Thursday that it is considering a plan that involves the licensed production of T-90 tanks in Iran in what could mark a new chapter in strategic relations between the two countries.

The announcement has been made by Vyacheslav Khalitov, the deputy general director of the UralVagonZavod (UVZ) which is the largest battle tank manufacturer in the world.
.
Khalitov has been quoted as saying by Interfax news agency as saying that the project to produce T-90s in Iran will go ahead as soon as there is a proposal from Tehran.
.
"We are ready, if the customer wants it," Khalitov said.
.
Iran has already purchased Russia’s S-300 missile defense systems for $800 million and has started to receive the early batches of the system which will be fully delivered over the next months.
.
Iran’s Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan left for Moscow on Tuesday to discuss the delivery of S-300 as well as several other issues of mutual interest.
.
Iran’s Embassy in Moscow has announced in a statement that Dehqan is expected to discuss purchases of Russian Sukhoi Su-30 fighter jets and T-90 tanks during his visit.
.   
Russia’s media said in February that Tehran had handed Moscow a major shopping list involving arms and military equipment.
.
Sources close to the Russian government said at the time that Iran’s Defense Minister Dehqan was to visit Moscow later in February to discuss new sales contracts that were collectively estimated to be around $8 billion.
.
"Iran would like to buy Russia's latest S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system, developed by Almaz-Antey. And they make no secret of it. On the eve of his visit to Moscow Dehghan openly said to Iranian media they want to purchase the S-400s," Interfax quoted a source close to the Russian government as saying.
.
According to Interfax’s source, the second important topic of Dehqan’s talks in Moscow was expected to be Tehran’s possible procurement, or even a licensed production of the new Russian Sukhoi Su- 30SM multi-role fighter.
.
Iran is also interested in Russia’s Bastion mobile coastal defense missile system, equipped with supersonic Yakhont anti-ship missiles, along with Mi-8/17 helicopters and other arms, Interfax added.

Israel armed the Afghan mujaheddin, as a prelude to the Taliban and 'al-CIA-duh'

.
.
.
.
This yet another expose of 9/11, but difficult to see how the Israelis could have pulled it off without inside USA support from the Pentagon and the security services. 

Impossible without their cooperation.

The role of Saudi Arabia would be to reinforce the big lie passively, without any active participation in 9/11.

9 11 AND THE POWERS-THAT-BE by aangirfan

.

Steve Pieczenik, former US State Department official, says that dual-national civilians loyal to the state of Israel took over the Pentagon under George W. Bush.
Pieczenik says that "The Neo-Cons, the Neo-Con Jews, Israel, Dubai, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, will all be implicated in 9-11."

"The highest level members of Israeli military intelligence began predicting that 'Arab terrorists' would attack the highest towers in New York City in the late 1970s, exactly when the extreme right-wing Likud party of Jewish terrorists came to power. 

"The false-flag terror attacks of 9-11 were predicted by the former chief of the Mossad, Isser Harel, in 1979, and they were depicted on screen by Israel's military intelligence agent in Hollywood, Arnon Milchan, in 1978. 

"Amazing how Israeli intelligence agents could see 9-11 coming."

"Arnon Milchan's first film featured a passenger jet crashing into a high-rise tower - in 1978.

Remotely controlled civilian planes.....Mars orbiters..and technology from the 1960's

"Clearly, the plans for 9-11 were on the drawing board at Israeli military intelligence in the late 1970s, when the Zionist terrorist chiefs came to power under Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Shamir's Likud coalition.

.
"This is the same time when Israel became involved in the Afghan-Soviet war, in which it played a major role. 

"As Pakistan's Daily Times Monitor reported in July 2003, 'Pakistan Got Israeli Weapons During Afghan War':
. Most of the Afghan war against the Soviet Union was fought using Israeli arms supplied after General Zia ul Haq entered into secret deals with Tel Aviv, says a recently published book, Charlie Wilson's War: The Extraordinary Story of the Largest Covert Operation in History.

"Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq, the Pakistani general who served as president of Pakistan from 1978 until 1988, made deals with the Israelis.

.
"Israel provided arms and training to jihadist forces who were fighting the Soviet-backed Afghan government. 

"As A.Z. Hilali wrote in US-Pakistan Relationship:
.
Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan, thousands of mujahideen fighters, particularly from the Hezb-e Islami faction of Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, were trained by Israeli instructors. 

"The head of Pakistan's ISI agency, Akhtar Abdur Rahman, apparently allowed the Israeli trainers into his country.

"This Israeli-armed and trained faction then became Al Qaeda, as The Columbia World Dictionary of Islamism reports: having lost Saudi support when it supported Saddam Hussein and Pakistani support after 1994, 'the remainder of Hizb-i Islami merged into al-Qaeda and the Taliban.'"

"Understanding the key role that Israel played in arming and training the jihadist faction that became Al Qaeda is essential to understanding how Israeli intelligence cultivated the Islamist 'enemy' that was blamed for 9-11 and against which we have been waging war ever since."

Demonising Putin before war, and full sanctions

.
.
.
.
The military Industrial Complex in the USA and the Israeli neocons need enemies for their Full Spectrum Dominance Doctrine.

The enemies need to be industrially manufactured using the fagots in intelligence and the military.

Fighting 'al-CIA-duh' and the CIA created ISIS requires special forces, and the special forces of other countries, even as they pretend to fight them.

You cannot justify a worthless corrupt $1 trillion F-35 program against the threat of Islamic terrorism.

But Russia, and later China........for them the USA must spend big on planes, tanks, submarines.

This is why there is now a focus on Russia, and the illegal meddling in the Ukraine.....and the pivot to the Pacific. 

This is why big American warships sail provocatively close to their desired enemies.

But all this theatrics is not based on a desire for a real war against a big power. 

The USA cannot handle psychologically up front and clean cut, a big fight through conventional means......with a REAL POWER...WITH LOSSES of 50,000--100,000 dead. In such a scenario it relies on asymmetric warfare. 

Russia and China can destroy a few USA warships and nothing will happen except sabre rattling and jingoistic posturing from that hyper power.

Is the CIA Running a Defamation Campaign Against Putin?

The latest hot topic in the Russian media. Russian politicians are talking about it. Historical precedent and behavior of Western media suggests that they are.
By Russia Insider and the Saker 
 
A major topic in the Russian media is mystification with how Putin is portrayed in the Western media.
.
Wildly popular at home, and seen as a decent, modest, an admirable person, and Russians don't understand how there can be such a disconnect with Western impressions.
.

Recently, leading Russian commentators and politicians have been suggesting that this can only be explained by a deliberate campaign to defame Putin, by governments or other groups.
.
Yesterday, at a briefing to foreign journalists, Sergey Ivanov, Putin's chief of staff, arguably the 2nd most powerful man in Russia, spoke of an "information war" consisting of "personal attacks" on Putin.

The western media hit a new low...I'M LOOKING AT ENGLISH ASS WIPE RAGS HERE. IS THIS THE MAGNIFICENT GREECE TO ANCIENT ROME, GUIDANCE AND ENLIGHTENING?
The day before another member of Putin's inner circle, Vyasheslav Volodin, made similar remarks, telling foreign journalists "an attack on Putin is an attack on Russia."
 
The logic, they argue, is that by defaming the leader of a country, you weaken his power domestically by undermining popular support for him, and internationally, by rallying popular opinion to support policies against that country.  The ultimate goal, they argue, is to weaken the country itself. They also talk about regime change.
 
They argue that if one looks at the facts, that there is evidence of ongoing character assassination which cannot be explained by a vague popular zeitgeist in the West, but is more likely the result of a dedicated effort to introduce this defamation into the news flow.

Newsweek has been one of the most virulent Putin-bashers for years
The issue of manipulation of news by intelligence services has been in the news recently with revelations that the CIA and German Secret Service (GSS) have long-running programs to influence how media executives and top journalists convey and interpret the news, including direct cash payments.
 
Here are some examples they point to:
  • Portraying him as a scheming dictator trying to rebuild a repressive empire.
  • Claiming he personally ordered the murder of a number of journalists, and personally ordered a KGB defector to be murdered with radiation poisoning.
  • Frequently citing unsubstantiated rumors he is having an affair with a famous gymnast.
  • Allegations that he has stashed away billions for his personal benefit, without providing evidence.
  • Recent article in newsweek claiming he leads a luxurious and lazy lifestyle, sleeping late.
  • Recent article in NYT focusing on a supposed personal arrogance.
  • Hillary Clinton mentioning in speech after speech that he is a bad guy, a bully, that one must confront him forcefully.
  • Frequently using pejoratives to describe his person - "a jerk and a thug" (Thomas Friedman this week in the NYT)
  • Mis-quoting him on his regret about the collapse of the Soviet Union.
  • Articles about a supposed super-luxury villa built for him in southern Russia.
  • The over-the top headlines in the western media (they were worst of all in Germany) portraying him personally responsible for murdering the victims of MH17.
  • And soft stuff - magazine covers making him look sinister, monstrous, etc.
RI sat down with The Saker, a leading analyst of Russia in international affairs, and asked him what he thinks:
 
-----------------------------------
So, is there any credence to this line of thinking, or is this conspiracy theorists running wild?
 .
There is no doubt in my mind whatsoever that the US is waging a major psyop war against Russia, although not a shooting war, for now, and that what we are seeing is a targeted campaign to discredit Putin and achieve "regime change" in Russia or, should that fail, at the very least "regime weakening" and "Russia weakening".

And the Economist has been the very worst of them all...
So this is a US government program?
.
Yes, Putin is absolutely hated by certain factions in the US government two main reasons:
.
1.  He partially, but not fully, restored Russia's sovereignty which under Gorbachev and Yeltsin had been totally lost … Russia then was a US colony like Ukraine is today … and,
.
2.  He dared to openly defy the USA and its 'civilizational' model.
.
… a free and sovereign Russia is perceived by the US "deep state" as an existential threat which has to be crushed.    … this is a full-scale political assault on Russia and Putin personally.
.
So what the Russians are saying, that the constant personal attacks against Putin in the global media are partly the result of deliberate efforts by US intelligence services, … basically, planted stories…
.
Yes, absolutely
It seems like “Operation Mockingbird” all over again…  Are you aware of other instances aimed at Putin?
(Editors Note:  Operation Mockingbird was a CIA program started in the 1950s to influence the US media, which was gradually exposed by investigative journalists starting in the late 60s, culminating in sensational televised congressional hearings in 1975 which shocked the nation, forcing the program’s termination.  Critics maintain that the same tactics have continued since, under different programs. Wikipedia)

Yes, of course.  Since this defamation has very little traction with the Russian public  … Putin's popularity is higher than ever before .., there is an organized campaign to convince them that Putin is "selling out" Novorussia, that he is a puppet of oligarchs who are making deals with Ukrainian oligarchs to back-stab the Novorussian resistance…
.

… So far, Putin's policies in the Ukraine have enjoyed very strong support from the Russian people who still oppose an overt military intervention…
.
… but if Kiev attacks Novorussia again - which appears very likely - and if such an attack is successful - which is less likely but always possible - then Putin will be blamed for having given the Ukrainians the time to regroup and reorganize.
Warm and fuzzy...
Warm and fuzzy...
.
So you are saying that if the Ukrainian military strengthens its position enough to deliver a serious blow to the East Ukrainians, the US can use this as a method to strike at Putin’s support base…

Yes, that’s right ...  there are a lot of "fake patriots" in Russia and abroad who will reject any negotiated solution and who will present any compromise as a "betrayal".  They are the "useful idiots" used by western special services to smear and undermine Putin.
.
Is it limited to government special ops, or are there other groups who might have an interest in doing this?
.
Yes, well here is something that most people in the west don’t appreciate… there is a major behind-the scenes struggle among Russian elites between what I call the "Eurasian Sovereignists" (basically, those who support Putin) and what I call the "Atlantic Integrationists" (those whom Putin refers to as the "5th column).
.
The western media talks about this as the struggle between Russian liberals and conservatives, reformers and reactionaries, right?
.
Well its sort of like that, but not exactly…
The former see Russia's future in the Russian North and East and want to turn Russia towards Asia, Latin America and the rest of the world, while the latter want Russia to become part of the "North Atlantic" power configuration. 
.
The Atlantic Integrationists are now too weak to openly challenge Putin - whose real power base is his immense popular support - but they are quietly sabotaging his efforts to reform Russia while supporting anti-Putin campaigns.
.
Regarding the revelations of CIA activities in Germany, do you think this is going on in other countries, in the US?
.
I am sure that this is happening in most countries worldwide.  The very nature of the modern corporate media is such that it makes journalists corrupt. 
As the French philosopher Alain Soral says "nowadays a reporter is either unemployed or a prostitute".  There are, of course, a few exceptions, but by and large this is true.
.
This is not to say that most journalists are on the take.  In the West this is mostly done in a more subtle way - by making it clear which ideas do or do not pass the editorial control, by lavishly rewarding those journalists who 'get it' and by quietly turning away those who don't.
.
If a journalist or reporter commits the crime of "crimethink" he or she will be sidelined and soon out of work.
.
There is no real pluralism in the West where the boundaries of what can be said or not are very strictly fixed.
.
Ok, but is it like what has been revealed in Germany, …similar specific operational programs in France, the UK, Italy, Latin America, etc.
.
Yes, one has to assume so – it is in their interests to have them and there is no reason for them not to.
.
As for the CIA, it de-facto controls enough of the corporate media to "set the tone".  As somebody who in the past used to read the Soviet press for a living, I can sincerely say that it was far more honest and more pluralistic than the press in the USA or EU today.
.
Joseph Goebbels or Edward Bernays could not have imagined the degree of sophistication of modern propaganda machines.
.
If the US is doing it, can't one assume other governments are too?  Are the Russians doing it against western leaders?
.
I think that all governments try to do that kind of stuff.  However, what makes the US so unique it a combination of truly phenomenal arrogance and multi-billion dollar budgets.
.
The US "deep state" owns the western corporate media which is by far the most powerful media on the planet.  Most governments can only do that inside their own country ... to smear a political opponent or discredit a public figure, but they simply do not have the resources to mount an international strategic psyop campaign.  This is something only the US can do.
.
So foreign governments are at a great disadvantage in this arena vis-a-vis the US?
Absolutely.

Russia still going strong despite its neo-liberal Central Bankers

.
.
.
.
Russia has ample space to grow in the coming years, given that significant sections of the population...70-80% live in middle income levels that are found in developing countries, and there is a strong desire for these people to strive for a better quality of life, equivalent to that of Sweden and Northern Europe generally.

Russians deserve no less than them.

The only thing holding these 70-80% back is the neo-liberal policy makers within the Russian government, who follow economic policies favored by the Chicago school of economics and Professor Milton Friedman. If the Russian patriots have courage and vision, like Deng Xiaoping the pragmatist in China, then eventually INDEPENDENT ECONOMIC PLANNERS in Russia can devise plans for stronger economic growth in the country.

Russia can easily become a $7.5 trillion PPP GDP economy if its leaders stopped looking to the West for its moral, spiritual and financial guidance.

90% of the Jews have left Russia for the West and Israel. The catastrophic economic sabotage and disasters of 1917--1921 and 1991-2000.....guided by NY and London can no longer be blamed on the Jew, CURRENTLY. There are no more EXCUSES left, but to implement the right economic policies that bolster the Russian economic growth.

No more excuses that state that large parts of Russia still don't enjoy living standards that existed in the Soviet Union in 1990. 

No more excuses for having a small middle class of 15%, equivalent to that of a third world country.

No more excuses for the capital flight of $130 billion from the Russian economy every year.

No more excuses which state that only the Moscow hinterland must be developed, and fuck the rest of the country.

No more excuses that state that corrupt politicians and administrations outside of Moscow must be tolerated for the sake of peace, stability and national unity.

From a strong independent economy will come a strong country.

Strong security.

Да здравствует Россия

Russia Still World's Sixth Largest Economy

Counting by real economic output, Russia has retained its position as one of the world's largest economies


This article was first published by Awara

Fresh data from the IMF (International Monetary Fund) shows that Russia has retained its place among the World’s largest economies. In the 2015 ranking, it is now slightly behind Germany just as in the previous year.
.
China has drawn further ahead from the USA solidifying its lead as the world’s number one economy with 19.5 trillion (in dollar terms). The USA is behind with as much as 1.5 trillion, the size of the economy of Canada.
.
India is one of the largest economies that grew the most and reached the size of 8 trillion last year. After India comes Japan with 4.8tn, then Germany, 3.8tn, and Russia 3.5tn. (Traditionally, the World Bank data awards Russia a significantly higher GDP than what the IMF figures does, but the World Bank data for 2015 is not out yet).

Notwithstanding the above, somebody might want to lead you astray and claim that Russia’s economy is only the 13th biggest at a size of 1.2 trillion. Here’s the catch, the first set of figures is based on the purchasing power parity (PPP) whereas the second awarding Russia’s economy the far lesser size is based on a calculation by the nominal current USD/RUB exchange rate. The Russia bashers will surely want to refer to the latter.
.
The comparison of the size of the economies across the world on the nominal GDP currency rate is utterly wrong as it only reflects shortsighted speculative differences in the exchange rates. The PPP-method on the contrary determines the size based on the real output of a country. Basically, the method is to compare how much a U.S. dollar fetches in different countries, and then to adjust the nominal GDP with the coefficient thus derived. (As the USD, is the currency of comparison, the nominal GDP and the PPP GDP are by definition always the same for the USA).
.
For example, you can compare the purchasing power by comparing how much bread or meat you can buy for 10 dollars in the various countries. After the sharp devaluation of the ruble, you got 50 to 60 percent less dollars for your rubles.

Correspondingly, the nominal value of the Russian GDP was down as much when expressed in dollars. However, you still get almost as much bread and meat for the rubles (here almost refers to the inflation, which was much less than the currency devaluation). The size of the economy must of course be expressed as its real output and not according to the fluctuating nominal exchange rate.
.
Let’s take a more compelling PPP-comparison. With the lower ruble, Russia still produces for the same ruble price (and half the dollar) the same Sukhoi fighter jets, T-90 or Armata tanks, Superjet airplanes, nuclear power plants, personal cars, bridges, houses etc.
.
We could also look at the question the other way around. Hardly, anybody would venture to claim that the Russian economy grew 20% from January to April as the Russian ruble again strengthened against the dollar from 82 to 66 rubles to the dollar.
.
For reference here is the chart showing the nominal GDPs for the World’s largest economies in nominal current currency exchange rates.

Pohela Boishakh: John Kerry greets Bengalis on their new year

By the PTI and the times of India.


US secretary of state John Kerry has offered greetings to Bengalis living across the globe on the occasion of their new year.

"On behalf of President Obama and the American people, I am delighted to wish a happy and prosperous New Year to Bengalis everywhere," Kerry said. "We rejoice along with all those from Bangladesh, India, and around the world who gather today to celebrate the arrival of the new year," he said in a statement on Thursday.

Kerry, 72, said that "Pohela Boishakh", also known as Bengali New Year, was a time of renewal and reconciliation.



"It is time for families and friends to celebrate their heritage and culture, to reflect on the past year, and to look forward to the year ahead," he said,

Kerry said for Americans the day was an opportunity to recognise the contributions of hundreds of thousands of Bengali Americans who have made their mark in so many ways, including in science, business, public service, law, medicine.


 
"May we begin this new year with a sense of hope and optimism. 'Shubho Nabobarsho!'" he added.

Pohela Boishakh is the first day of the Bengali calendar, celebrated on 14 April in Bangladesh and on 15 April in West Bengal by the Bengalis.

US Plans Massive Syria Weapons Influx if Ceasefire Collapses

'Plan B' Would See Shipments of Powerful Anti-Aircraft Weapons

by Jason Ditz, antiwar.com
While most people are focusing on the Syrian ceasefire, which has held since February, as an opportunity to negotiate a settlement to the civil war, the US and its “vetted rebels” are looking beyond it, making plans for the day when it collapses.
.
According to officials familiar with the situation, the CIA has been drawing up a “plan B” for the collapse of the peace talks, which will see a massive new influx of US weapons to “moderate” rebel factions, in another attempt to shift the war in favor of those groups.
.
If that sounds familiar, it’s because the CIA already had programs for arming “vetted” rebel factions earlier in the civil war, programs which ended with those groups no more powerful, and large amounts of US weapons winding up in the hands of ISIS and al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front.
.
“Plan B,” then, is really just America’s long-standing plan A, which has already failed, re-branded with a different letter, because nominally the US has to pretend it believes in the peace process whilst it so eagerly plans for the collapse of it.
.
The same plan, only moreso, as officials say the CIA is also planning to send even more powerful anti-aircraft weapons to the rebel factions, with an eye toward shooting down Syrian warplanes.
.
And Russian ones. With Russia now directly involved in the war, providing weapons to shoot down Russian planes seems a deliberately provocative action for the US, and ill-timed since they are supposedly negotiating a deal to team up against ISIS.
.
Though US officials continue to insist that the fight against ISIS is their primary focus in Syria, the import of anti-aircraft weapons reflects the administration’s priorities, which as ever involve fighting against Russia.

Misleading rabbit holes

.
.
.
.
1. Saudi Arabia is a medieval head chopping monarchy run by the Saudi family, after whom the country is named. The Saudi family are originally Iraqi Jews from Basra, who were robber bandits in the Jeddah area some 200 years ago, until the British were impressed by their 'fighting' prowess and helped them consolidate the land of what we know today is Saudi Arabia in the early part of the 20th century.

2. However it is the USA since the 1930's who developed the country's vast oil resources, making it the second richest Muslim country ($1.8 trillion PPP GDP), and the second largest oil exporter, after Russia. The Saudis park trillions of dollars of their money in Jewish Western banks, including USA banks, and buy billions of $ worth of arms from the USA.

3. Saudi Arabia is important for the USA for another reason.....it funds money to Islamic terrorist groups through its many charities, ON THE ORDERS AND DIRECTION OF THE USA, working with the USA, which bypasses Capital Hill Scrutiny (if it ever existed). al-Qaeda the mythical Saudi front group under Osama Bin Laden the Saudi, ISIS, al-Shahaab, al-Qaeda in Yemen, al-Qaeda in North Africa, the Taliban, the Afghan Mujaheddin in the 1980's dollar for dollar with the USA. Thus Saudi Arabia is a very key player in Greater Middle East USA covert games.....that is so beloved by the CIA, State Department and the Pentagon.....and others.

4. Saudi Arabia loves Israel....and sends Valentine gifts every so often, to inform them of the Saudi family's Jewish background...which is celebrated by destroying a high percentage of the historical archeology of Makkah and Medina. ......for the sake of Western style touristy TASTELESS upgrading. MORE curious is the total silence of the Muslim world to this fact. Dumb brown fucks!

Saudi Arabia for these reasons is UNTOUCHABLE. It can do no wrong.

American Presidents will continue bowing and kissing the hand of the Saudi Kings. No other Monarchy, nay not even the pure British Monarchy receive such deferential treatment.

As to 9/11, Saudi Arabia had NOTHING to do with this False Flag event. 

Saudi Arabia, and its leading families have nothing to gain, and everything to lose by attacking the USA.

Yes 16 of the 19 alleged terrorists were Saudi nationals.....some are still alive in their home countries.

Yes the leader of the group was Osama Bin Laden (aka Tim Osman) the Saudi.

The list of the 19 terrorists were drawn up by Indian Intelligence, RAW, and accepted by the FBI........BIZARRE!

Arab terrorists didn't hijack any planes....but Pentagon cruise missiles and remotely controlled planes did play a part.

But Saudi Arabia's role if any, was its quiet acquiescence in the big lie that 19 young men residing in the USA hijacked 4 planes simultaneously, whilst the mutli-trillion dollar American security Leviathan slept. 

9/11 was carried out by the right-wing Bush administration working with the Israeli Neo-cons, and their people in the Pentagon, USA 'Intelligence' and other groups to promote a more aggressive USA foreign policy, especially in the Greater Middle East.........Which would make a lot of USA men in the right place very rich...profiting from pain, war, destruction and xenophobia and a SECURITY STATE in the USA.

Saudi Arabia implicated in 9/11 is a Red Herring.

60 Minutes to Report on 28 Pages Said to Link 9/11, Saudi Arabia



The drive to declassify 28 pages from a congressional intelligence inquiry that detail specific indications of foreign government support of the 9/11 hijackers is about to be put under a powerful spotlight, as 60 Minutes will air a segment on the topic this Sunday, April 10 at 7 pm ET/PT.
.

According to the CBS News preview of the story, Steve Kroft interviewed former senator Bob Graham, former congressman and CIA director Porter Goss, former 9/11 Commission members Bob Kerrey and John Lehman, lawyers representing 9/11 family members suing Saudi Arabia and former congressman Tim Roemer, who served on both the inquiry that produced the 28 pages and the 9/11 Commission that followed that inquiry.

Report to Air on Eve of Obama Visit to Saudi Arabia

The high-profile 60 Minutes segment—which is positioned for high viewership as it follows coverage of the Masters Tournament—comes at a particularly sensitive time for the White House, as the president will visit Saudi Arabia on April 21. 9/11 family members say that, in 2009 and 2011, Obama assured them he would declassify the 28 pages, yet that promise has gone unfulfilled.
Former Senator Bob Graham
Former Senator Bob Graham
Graham, who co-chaired the inquiry that wrote the 28 pages, has said, “The 28 pages primarily relate to who financed 9/11 and they point a very strong finger at Saudi Arabia as being the principal financier.” He has also said that, by shielding Saudi Arabia from scrutiny of its sponsorship of Sunni extremism, the continued classification has encouraged their continued sponsorship and paved the way for the rise of ISIS.
.
Congressman Thomas Massie described the experience of reading the pages as “shocking” and said, “I had to stop every couple pages and…try to rearrange my understanding of history. It challenges you to rethink everything.”
Congressmen Walter Jones, Stephen Lynch and Massie are leading an effort in the U.S. House of Representatives to declassify the 28 pages: Their House Resolution 14, which urges the president to declassify the material, has 41 cosponsors. A similar measure, Senate Bill 1471, was introduced by Senators Rand Paul and Ron Wyden and cosponsored by Kirsten Gillibrand.

Review of 28 Pages Nears Its Third Year

In response to heightened media attention to the 28 pages in September 2014, the White House said the president, earlier that summer, tasked Director of National Intelligence James Clapper with conducting an intelligence community review of the 28 pages for potential declassification.

Documents released by the US government's Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) website have provided an indication of the types and numbers of Eastern European weapons and ammunition the United States is providing to Syrian rebel groups as part of a programme that continues despite the widely respected ceasefire in that country.
.
The FBO has released two solicitations in recent months looking for shipping companies to transport explosive material from Eastern Europe to the Jordanian port of Aqaba on behalf of the US Navy's Military Sealift Command.
.
Released on 3 November 2015, the first solicitation sought a contractor to ship 81 containers of cargo that included explosive material from Constanta in Bulgaria to Aqaba.
.
The solicitation was subsequently updated with a detailed packing list that showed the cargo had a total weight of 994 tonnes, a little under half of which was to be unloaded at Agalar, a military pier near the Turkish town of Tasucu, the other half at Aqaba.
.
The cargo listed in the document included AK-47 rifles, PKM general-purpose machine guns, DShK heavy machine guns, RPG-7 rocket launchers, and 9K111M Faktoria anti-tank guided weapon (ATGW) systems. The Faktoria is an improved version of the 9K111 Fagot ATGW, the primary difference being that its missile has a tandem warhead for defeating explosive reactive armour (ERA) fitted to some tanks.

Syria - As Rebels Break Ceasefire Army Gathers For New Campaign

By Moon of Alabama

The ceasefire in Syria held for some five weeks but is now about to end. During the ceasefire Russia reduced its forces in Syria and the Syrian Arab Army made significant progress against the Islamic State.  But the opposition and their sponsors abused the ceasefire to rearm. They prepared and executed new attacks against the Syrian government and Syrian civilians.
.
The sponsors of the opposition, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the U.S. delivered new arms and munition to the "moderate" opposition. It is known that up to half of all supplies the "moderates" receive is inevitably delivered to al-Qaeda in Syria. The sponsors also broke a long-standing taboo and introduced portable anti-air missiles (MANPADs) onto the battle field. Several fighters of the U.S. and Turkey supported Al Hamza brigade posted pictures showing off their new toys. The U.S. claims that these fighters are supposed to only fight the Islamic State. But the Islamic State has no aircraft and these weapons are clearly to be used against the Syrian government and its supporters.
.
Today Ahrar al-Sham, a Salafist group near to al-Qaeda, downed (video) a Syrian Su-22 ground-attack plane with a MANPAD near the city of Tal Eis, south of Aleppo city. The pilot, Lt. Col Musad Zayed Hirani, was taken prisoner by al-Qaeda in Syria (Jabhat al Nusra). This incident shows that MANPADs immediately proliferate on the battle field and beyond and may soon be used against civilian planes in the Middle East and around the world.
.
Also today "moderate" rebels launched improvised artillery attacks on the mostly Kurdish Sheikh Maqsoud neighborhood in the government held parts of Aleppo city. At least 17 civilians were killed and more than 50 were wounded.
.
The "moderate" opposition in Syria which is receiving official U.S. support is not willing to distance itself from al-Qaeda:
“We absolutely do not agree with Jabhat Al Nusra. We do not want Jabhat Al Nusra’s ideology to be in Syria now or in the future. But we need fighters who will fight with us against the regime," said Zakaria Malahefji, a political officer with Fastaqim Kama Umrit, a coalition of rebel groups in the city of Aleppo.
...
“Jabhat Al Nusra are our brothers," said Hajj Bakri, a rebel leader in Hama. “We have no problem with them."
...
“Our relationship with Jabhat Al Nusra is good and there is a collaboration with Jabhat Al Nusra in military operations and security responsibilities," said Abu Zeid, a commander with the hardline Salafi militia Ahrar Al Sham in north-western Syria’s Akrad Mountains. As one of the most powerful rebel factions in the war, Ahrar Al Sham is Al Nusra’s most important single ally.
Al-Qaeda in Syria was, like the Islamic State, not part of the ceasefire agreement. The U.S. officially regards al-Qaeda in Syria as a terrorist entity and enemy. Al-Qaeda has zero interest in any negotiated peace and is therefore doing its best to sabotage it. During the last weeks it succeeded in convincing the "moderates" to join it in renewed fighting:
Faced by an internationally-mediated cessation of hostilities that threatened to irreversibly erode its influence, Nusra had begun in mid-March a process of talks inside Syria aimed at convincing opposition groups to resume their fight against the regime. As such, the last 48 hours of opposition advances south of Aleppo represent a victory for al-Qaeda in its efforts to undermine the political process and to put back in place conditions more amenable to its long game strategy for Syria.
On Saturday several U.S. supported "moderate" rebel groups joined al-Qaeda in an attack on the government held city of Tal Eis in the south Aleppo countryside:
Syria's partial cease-fire appeared to be unraveling Saturday as fierce fighting between government forces and opposition fighters, including members of the al-Qaida affiliated Nusra Front, erupted outside the country's second largest city of Aleppo and other parts in the country's north. At least 25 pro-government and 16 opposition fighters died in the clashes south of Aleppo, where the Nusra Front and rebel militias captured a village overlooking a major highway, a Britain-based monitoring group told The Associated Press.
...
A number of groups — including some nominally party to the truce agreement — acknowledged on social media that they were battling government forces.

The Islam Army, whose political coordinator heads the opposition delegation during halting peace talks in Geneva, announced it had killed 20 government soldiers in fighting outside Damascus Friday. It announced Saturday it was also fighting in the south Aleppo countryside, though the group is not known to have a major presence there.
It is obvious now that the "moderate" rebels have broken the ceasefire and are openly in full cooperation with al-Qaeda.
.
Unless the opposition sponsors manage to immediately reign in their proxies, all out war in Syria will soon be back. The Syrian government and its allies are now mobilizing more forces to regain the lost areas in the southern Aleppo country side.
.
For the first time 'advisors' of the regular Iranian army (not the Revolutionary Guard) will take part in the fighting. The Russian air force is likely to reintroduce some parts of its Syria contingent that had been withdrawn.
.
The Russian side had agreed with the U.S. to stop the fighting and to take the political walk through negotiations in Geneva. This decision was made against the wishes of the Syrian government and its Iranian allies. They would have preferred to at least free Aleppo city of all opposition forces before any talks.
.
But even if the ceasefire now breaks down the Russian move was valuable. It showed that it is able to hold its allies to a ceasefire when promised. It also demonstrated that the U.S. side is either not able, or not willing to implement and keep a ceasefire but abuses such period to rearm its proxies for new fighting.

U.S. Delivers 3,000 Tons Of Weapons And Ammo To Al-Qaeda & Co in Syria

By Moon of Alabama

The United States via its Central Intelligence Service is still delivering thousands of tons of additional weapons to al-Qaeda and others in Syria.
.
The British military information service Janes found the transport solicitation for the shipment on the U.S. government website FedBizOps.gov. Janes writes:
The FBO has released two solicitations in recent months looking for shipping companies to transport explosive material from Eastern Europe to the Jordanian port of Aqaba on behalf of the US Navy's Military Sealift Command.

The Janes author tweeted the full article (copy here).
.
One ship with nearly one thousand tons of weapons and ammo left Constanta in Romania on December 5. The weapons are from Bulgaria, Croatia and Romania. It sailed to Agalar in Turkey which has a military pier and then to Aqaba in Jordan. Another ship with more than two-thousand tons of weapons and ammo left in late March, followed the same route and was last recorded on its way to Aqaba on April 4.
.
We already knew that the "rebels" in Syria received plenty of weapons during the official ceasefire. We also know that these "rebels" regularly deliver half of their weapon hauls from Turkey and Jordan to al-Qaeda in Syria (aka Jabhat al-Nusra):
Hard-core Islamists in the Nusra Front have long outgunned the more secular, nationalist, Western-supported rebels. According to FSA officers, Nusra routinely harvests up to half the weapons supplied by the Friends of Syria, a collection of countries opposed to Assad, ..
U.S. and Turkey supported "rebels" took part in the recent attack on Tal al-Eis against Syrian government forces which was launched with three suicide bombs by al-Qaeda in Syria. This was an indisputable breaking of the ceasefire agreement between Russia and the U.S. It is very likely that some of the weapons and ammunition the U.S. delivered in December were used in this attack.
.
Millions of rifle, machine-gun and mortar shots, thousands of new light and heavy weapons and hundreds of new anti-tank missiles were delivered by the U.S.
 . 
Neither Turkey nor Jordan use such weapons of Soviet providence. These weapons are going to Syria where, as has been reported for years by several independent sources, half of them go directly to al-Qaeda.

Best Friends Forever: Turkey Removes 'al-Qaeda in Syria' From Terror List

Turkey has removed al-Nusra Front and affiliated groups from its list of ‘terrorist organizations’
 
By Russia Insider

Always a loyal friend, Turkey has decided to remove al-Nusra Front, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, from its list of terrorist organizations. Al-Nusra remained on the list for a staggering two weeks before Ankara remedied this horrible injustice:
The group was listed by Turkey as a ‘terrorist organisation’ only about 2 weeks before the removal decision. The decision, which was taken during a ministerial cabinet meeting on Monday, was announced in the Official Gazette on Wednesday.

Turkey has openly admitted to aiding al-Qaeda in Syria, and recent evidence presented by Russia suggests that Ankara is arming and equipping a wide range of extremist groups in the region.
Are we finally allowed to acknowledge that NATO is funneling weapons to terrorist groups in Syria via Turkey? Or is that still "speculation"?

Russia Matches NATO's Brigade on Its Border. Raises the Pot by Two Divisions and a Tank Army

NATO has been telegraphing its buildup for two years now. Russians have long since started countering it

By Russia Insider 

US has announced that starting next February it will maintain a permanent deployment of a full combat brigade in Eastern Europe to counter an aggressive Russia.
.
A US armored brigade corresponds to about 4,500 men, along with 250 tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and self-propelled artillery, as well as 1,700 cars and trucks.
.
The unit will be spread out between Bulgaria, Romania, Poland and the Baltic states.
.
Obviously the Russians are not happy about this. The US foray into Estonia and Latvia in particular means a heavier rival military presence in close proximity to Russian cities since any time since 1944. (Obviously there were more troops arrayed against the Soviets during the Cold War, but these were sitting on the Elbe in central Germany, rather than 200 kilometres from Saint Petersburg.)

At the same time the Russians have not offered a high-pitched reaction to the move that NATO's Philip Breedlove was perhaps hoping for. Deutsche Well has the reason:
Moscow's lack of anger at these US plans has a simple explanation, said Alexander Golz, an expert on the Russian military. "The deployment of the armored brigade was already decided at the NATO Summit in Wales in 2014. Russia has already responded."
Moscow already announced it would set up new divisions in the west of the country. Lately there have been conflicting statements about their number. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said a few days ago, Russia planned to station two new divisions permanently in Russia's Western Military District.

"NATO is expanding its military potential in Europe, including in the immediate vicinity of the Russian border," he said. Russia was concerned, he said - and forced to react. But earlier, the defense minister had spoken about three new divisions in Russia's west. One of these divisions would be created from a brigade in the Smolensk region on the border with Belarus.
In addition, the Russian defense ministry announced in early February that it was reactivating the 1st Tank Guards Army, dissolved in 1998, in the west of the country. The new army is being formed from existing divisions and brigades that are to be reorganized and strengthened.
While the recent announcement sheds more detail on NATO's planned and ongoing buildup in Eastern Europe and also revises it to an extent the Russians have understood that NATO was coming ever since mid 2014. They have already moved to meet it. And boy are they some moves.
In the last 15 years the Russian military has slowly transformed from a massive division-based force to a lighter, more modular brigade-based force, better suited to fighting small wars.
.
However, especially for NATO it is now bringing back two divisions and a tank army!
.

A Russian tank army is a corps of two to three armored divisions with integrated artillery, bridging and helicopter support and motorized infantry divisions assigned on an ad hoc basis when needed.
.
So NATO, how do you like them apples?
