Quociente Cultural 's insight:

Amnesty removed the report from their web site ... I kept a Copy of Amnesty PDF. Pls check and see what is Amnesty hidding from you. Ask @Amnesty why they removed the report. Ask @Amnesty why they want by hidding Libya reality? How far they go on Helping Torture as a HumanRight for Libya Rebels? How Torture can become a sport with @Amnesty help.

"It's Worse Than 2008": CEO Of World's Largest Shipping Company Delivers Dire Assessment Of Global Economy | Zero Hedge

"It's Worse Than 2008": CEO Of World's Largest Shipping Company Delivers Dire Assessment Of Global Economy | Zero Hedge | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
Earlier today, we highlighted the rather abysmal results reported by Maersk, the world’s largest shipping company.

To the extent the conglomerate is a bellwether for global growth and trade, things are looking pretty grim. Maersk Line - the company's golden goose and the world's largest container operator - racked up $182 million in red ink last quarter and the outlook for 2016 isn't pretty either. The company now sees demand for seaborne container transportation rising a meager 1-3% for the year.

“The demand for transportation of goods was significantly lower than expected, especially in the emerging markets as well as the Group’s key Europe trades, where the impact was further accelerated by de-stocking of the high inventory levels,” the company said, in its annual report.

Just how bad have things gotten amid the global deflationary supply glut you ask?

Worse than 2008 according to CEO Nils Andersen who last November warned that “the world’s economy is growing at a slower pace than the International Monetary Fund and other large forecasters are predicting.” Here’s what Andersen told FT:

“It is worse than in 2008. The oil price is as low as its lowest point in 2008-09 and has stayed there for a long time and doesn’t look like going up soon. Freight rates are lower. The external conditions are much worse but we are better prepared.”

As FT goes on to note, “capacity in the container shipping industry increased 8 per cent in 2015” despite the fact that Maersk only sees global trade growing at between 1% and 3% in 2016.

Imports to Brazil, Europe, Russia, and Africa are all falling, Andersen warned. The company's business, Andersen says, is suffering from a "massive deterioration." That, you can bet, will likely lead to a "massive deterioration" in Maersk's shares, which took a substantial hit on Wednesday in the wake of the quarterly and annual results.

Se você não encontrar moderados na Síria, coloque uma fantasia em alguns extremistas

Se você não encontrar moderados na Síria, coloque uma fantasia em alguns extremistas | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
Lendo as manchetes cada vez mais estridentes e desesperadas berradas pela mídia ocidental sobre as forças terroristas apoiadas pelos Estados Unidos e que começam a quebrar sob uma bem coordenada ofensiva da Rússia, da Síria e de seus aliados, que parecem cada vez mais capazes de retomar o controle do país, qualquer leitor poderá perceber que, mesmo sendo o termo “rebeldes moderados” ou “oposição moderada” citados inúmeras vezes, a mídia do ocidente parece simplesmente incapaz de nomear entre eles um singelo grupo ou apenas um único comandante para exemplo.

Acontece que nunca houve nem há coisa parecida com os tais “rebeldes moderados” na Síria. Desde 2007, os Estados Unidos vêm conspirando para fundar e armar extremistas aliados à Al Qaeda para derrubar o governo da Síria e desestabilizar a influência iraniana através de todo o Oriente Médio.

Conforme exposto no artigo de Seymour Hersh em 2007 Estamos beneficiando nossos inimigos através do redirecionamento da política de nossa Administração na Guerra ao Terrorismo? Que é explícito ao declarar:

Os Estados Unidos tomaram parte também em operações clandestinas direcionadas contra o Irã e sua aliada Síria. O subproduto dessas atividades foi fortalecer grupos extremistas sunitas que compartilham uma visão radical e militante do Islã, hostis aos Estados Unidos e simpatizantes da Al Qaeda.

A tal “catástrofe” que a mídia ocidental menciona em manchetes cada vez mais histéricas, na realidade não se trata das operações de segurança atualmente colocadas em ação pela Rússia, Síria e aliados, e sim da conspiração descrita por Hersh em 2007, que se tornou inadministrável, começando as ações em 2011, tomando a “Primavera Árabe” como pretexto.
Mesmo quando o ocidente tenta dar caras e nomes aos chamados “rebeldes moderados” é muito fácil traçar sua origem, sempre ligada diretamente à Al Qaeda.

O “Comandante Rebelde” da BBC e sua fantasia.

Em reportagem de vídeo publicada recentemente pela BBC, denominada “O conflito na Síria: os rebeldes ‘sentem-se abandonados’ pelos Estados Unidos e Inglaterra” o repórter da BBC Quentin Sommerville afirma ter contatado “em segredo” rebeldes apoiados pelos Estados Unidos na Turquia. A entrevista, alegadamente “remota”, no entanto, foi realizada sob cobertura de operadores de câmera profissionais, mesmo tendo Sommerville asseverado que a situação era tão ruim que os rebeldes poderiam não ter sido encontrados. O “principal comandante rebelde dentro de Aleppo” entrevistado pela BBC não é outro senão Yaser Abdulrahim.
Aqui dá para ver claramente a Bandeira da Faylak Al-Sham no vídeo da BBC, com o comandante falso do FSA que, quando em campo, não mais usa seu uniforme novinho com insígnias do "Exército Livre da Síria".
Apesar de aparecer em um belo uniforme, com etiquetas do “Exército Livre da Síria” (Free Syrian Army – FSA – em inglês – NT), uniforme este que nunca foi visto com ele no campo de batalha e sentado ao lado de uma Igualmente imaculada bandeira colonial francesa do “Exército Livre da Síria”, Yaser Abdulrahim definitivamente não tem qualquer ligação com o aliás inexistente “Exército Livre da Síria”.
Na realidade, Abdulrahim é um dos comandantes da Faylaq Al-Sham, composta por terroristas da Al Qaeda e extremistas da Irmandade Muçulmana. A Faylaq Al-Sham, bem como seu comandante Yaser Abdulkrahim, de acordo com o próprio Sommerville, é parte da da Fatah Halab, grupo de coordenação o qual também inclui outros filiados da Al Qaeda como Ahrar ash-Sham e Jaysh al-Islam – este último grupo é o que literalmente pendurou civis em jaulas de metal colocadas nos telhados para servir como escudos humanos contra os ataques aéreos da Síria e da Rússia.

A organização Observatório dos Direitos Humanos (Human Right Watch em inglês – NT) em um de seus relatos, intitulado “Síria: Grupos Armados Usam Reféns Enjaulados como Contenção de Ataques” revela que:

No curso dos combates entre grupos armados e forças governamentais nas proximidades de Adra al-Omalia em dezembro de 2015, a Jabhat al-Nusra e a Jaysh al-Islam sequestraram centenas de civis, a maioria dos quais Alawitas, de acordo com a Comissão de Inquérito das Nações Unidas na Síria. Os reféns, muitos dos quais mulheres e crianças, são mantidos presos em lugares não identificados no leste de Ghouta. A preocupação é a de que estejam entre aqueles presos nestas jaulas.

O relato da organização de direitos humanos é extremamente preocupante, dado que implica no fato de que a Jaysh al-Islam, membro da Fatah Halab de Yaser Abdulrahim, é colaborador e luta ao lado do grupo listado como terrorista pelo Departamento de Estado dos EUA, a Jabhat al-Nusra.

'Mickey Mouse and Coca-Cola Revolution': The Roots of Libya’s Chaos

'Mickey Mouse and Coca-Cola Revolution': The Roots of Libya’s Chaos | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
As Libya votes to form a national unity government, activist Sukant Chandan speaks to Radio Sputnik’s Loud & Clear about how the NATO bombing – and Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton – have plunged the country into chaos.

"The West needs a unity government on paper in order to justify its next phase of military intervention, which it wants to do under the guise and the excuse of Daesh in Libya," Chandan tells Loud & Clear host Brian Becker, referring to Monday’s election.

"And indeed, Daesh in Libya are a primary, so-called ‘rebel faction’ that the leading NATO powers teamed up with."

Both the NATO bombing and the subsequent support for terrorist groups were used to overthrow former leader Muammar Gaddafi, who had become a threat to Western governments.

"Gaddafi was too radical because he was directly assisting for many decades and continuing a new phase of support to black and Asian people in Europe, and other radical movements," Chandan states. "He had to be cut off, so said imperialism, and that’s what they did."

Without the aid of NATO airstrikes, Libya’s government would have held onto power. It was only with the direct intervention of the West that rebel forces were able to overthrow Gaddafi, violently dragging his body through the street – a sight US presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton joked about on live television.

"Hillary Clinton is the most hawkish, and frankly…[the joking] betrays her totally sociopathic side to her," Chandan says, adding that, "It was Hillary Clinton who ensured that the death squads in Libya have a leading role to play in the junta in Tripoli."
Turns out Colonel Muammar Gaddafi was right when he told former British Prime Minister Tony Blair that if his regime failed then Islamic extremists would attack Europe, leaked phone conversations between the two leaders revealed, according to the Telegraph.

While the mainstream media portrayed Libyans as suffering under Gaddafi, that depiction was far from the truth.

"The Libyan people – and I’ve visited many working class areas and housing projects, etc. – they lived very well," he says. "It’s well known that the United Nations said Libya had the highest development index of any African country, and I think probably people in Libya had the best living standards of arguably any people of the Global South."

#Ukraine - La curiosité journalistique devient fatale même en #France - #medias #censure #PaulMoreira #atlantisme

"

Ajoutée le 4 févr. 2016

Il y a quelques jours nous avons eu la surprise de voir Canal+ diffuser un reportage sur l'Ukraine réalisé par Paul Moreira:
"Ukraine - Les masques de la révolution".
Nous fûmes tout d'abord agréablement surpris de constater enfin une volonté d'objectivité dans un reportage de TV mainstream. Nous trouvons certes le film encore trop indulgent envers Kiev et ses soutiens européens (ne montrant pas le pire!), tout en faisant passer quelques allusions sur certaines responsabilités de la Russie que nous ne reconnaissons pas. Mais là étaient probablement les conditions pour qu"il puisse être diffusé. Et ce fut déjà un sacré défi !

Les jours qui ont suivi, la consolation a fait place au dégoût devant la réaction de la traditionnelle bande d'antirusses pro-révolutionnaires obsessionnels qui tient en main la majorité des rédactions de la presse bien pensante (le trio gagnant: Libé, L'express, L'Obs). Paul Moreira va soudain s'apercevoir à quel point les chiens enragés (de garde) veillent sur nos consciences, eux les "vrais journalistes" qui n'ont pas mis un pied là-bas et recopient la dictée de leurs petits copains de Kiev et des activistes enragés "d'Euromaïdan France"."
