If there were any doubts that Western “leaders” live in a fantasy make-believe world constructed out of their own lies, the G-7 meeting and 70th anniversary celebration of the Normandy landing dispelled the doubts.

TLAXCALA: Esse pessoal não é sério... Ou: A doutrina Obama para a Europa é estúpida demais

TLAXCALA: Esse pessoal não é sério... Ou: A doutrina Obama para a Europa é estúpida demais | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

E o que fazer da ‘nova’ doutrina de política exterior de Obama?

 

Em artigo anterior nessa RT, chamei de doutrina “Removam-o-Cadáver-para-o-Necrotério – Sem alarde”[1] – dado que ela ostensivamente privilegia a guerra clandestina, em vez de “Choque e Pavor”.

Depois, em outro artigo,[2] mostrei o quando a doutrina ainda excepcionalista recolhe do pensamento do neoconservador de primeira hora (e quem conceptualizou a guerra do Iraque) Robert Kagan – marido da notória Victoria, Rainha do Nulandistão.

Mas tudo isso ainda estava, sem dúvida, conceitual demais. De fato, como espirrou de registros da Casa Branca, a “doutrina” nada é além de um prosaico “Não façam nenhuma merda estúpida” [orig. “Don’t Do Stupid S**t,”[3]], denominação plenamente aceita pelo The New York Times.[4]

Com um caça F-16 em segundo plano, Barack Obama faz observações em sua chegada a Varsóvia dia 3 de junho de 2014 (Reuters/Kevin Lamarque)

Mas “merda estúpida” é pouco para descrever mesmo o primeiro ato de Obama depois de anunciar a doutrina, semana passada, em West Point. Para os que não entendem, digamos, a mensagem, basta uma imagem para contar toda a história:[5] Obama e o presidente da Polônia em frente a uma exposição de F-16s num aeroporto militar perto de Varsóvia.

US and Israeli foreign policy rests on violence alone. Washington tells countries to do as Washington says or be "bombed into the stone age." Israel declares all Palestinians, even women and children, to be "terrorists," and proceeds to shoot them down in the streets, claiming that Israel is merely protecting itself against terrorists.

1 + Libyan PM survive to a Grenade attack »» RPG attack on Ahmed Maetig’s home #Libya | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
By Ashraf Abdul Wahab. Tripoli, 27 May 2014: The home of Prime Minister Ahmed Maetig in Tripoli was attacked last night with RPGs. A source close to Maetig told the Libya Herald that assailants fired two grenades at the house, in the capital’s Hay Al-Andalus area, at around 5 o’clock this morning. Maetig and his family were in the house at the time of the attack, he said. There have been unconfirmed reports that one of the attackers was killed and another injured in clashes with Maetig’s security team. Last month "caretaker" Prime Minister Abdullah Al-Thinni declined the permanent role of Prime Minister after a similar attack on his family home.

How the West’s war on Libya aided these Islamists.

irst the Obamas and now David Cameron have been photographed holding up that ceaselessly tweeted placard saying ‘#BringBackOurGirls’. Now all we need is for Nicolas Sarkozy to come out of retirement and do likewise and then all of the key invaders of Libya in 2011 will have registered their watery-eyed angst with Boko Haram, the Nigeria-based Islamist group that kidnapped 276 girls from a school in Chibok in north-east Nigeria, the ‘our girls’ referred to in that ubiquitous hashtag. Which would be profoundly ironic given that nothing boosted Boko Haram’s fortunes so much as the West’s assault on Libya in 2011. It was that vain bombing war, that Western-led dismantling of a regime that cohered Libya and its border regions for 40-plus years, which created new spaces in West Africa in which Boko Haram could train, get hold of weaponry and, in the words of one Nigerian observer, become more ‘audacious’ than ever. The Western politicians and hacks now expressing heartbreak over Boko Haram’s barbarism are the same ones whose urge to intervene in Libya provided Boko Haram with new forums in which to hone that barbarism.

ICC Appeals Chamber confirms the admissibility before the ICC of the case against Saif-Al-Islam Gaddafi

ICC Appeals Chamber confirms the admissibility before the ICC of the case against Saif-Al-Islam Gaddafi | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Today, 21 May 2014, the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Court (ICC) delivered its judgment confirming the decision of the ICC Pre-Trial Chamber I declaring admissible the case against Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi. The Appeals Chamber's judgment was issued by majority, with a separate concurring opinion by Judge Sang-Hyun Song. Judge Anita Ušacka adopted a dissenting opinion. On 31 May 2013, Pre-Trial Chamber I had rejected Libya's challenge to the admissibility of the case against Saif Al Islam Gaddafi and reminded Libya of its obligation to surrender the suspect to the Court. Libya appealed this decision on 7 June 2013. According to article 17 (1) (a) of the Rome Statute, a case is inadmissible before the Court where the same case is being investigated or prosecuted by a State which has jurisdiction over it, unless the State is unable or unwilling genuinely to carry out the investigation or prosecution

New civil war in Libya as Benghazi probe begins

New civil war in Libya as Benghazi probe begins | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

A new civil war in Libya is heating up just as the House select committee investigating the Obama administration’s handling of the 2012 terror attack in Benghazi prepares to launch.

 

Once again, Benghazi is at the epicenter of an emerging revolutionary movement in Libya in which suspected CIA-backed mercenaries posing as “freedom-fighting revolutionaries” are attempting to seize power from the provisional government established by the United States and NATO after the fall of Moammar Gadhafi.

Libyan tribes claiming to represent 5 million Libyan citizens went public Wednesday with charges against the Obama administration. They claim the U.S. is continuing to sponsor al-Qaida related Islamic extremists responsible for launching the terrorist attack on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens on Sept. 11, 2012.

Eduardo Galeano, The World Cup and the Corporatization of Soccer | TomDispatch | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

The Stadium

Have you ever entered an empty stadium? Try it. Stand in the middle of the field and listen. There is nothing less empty than an empty stadium. There is nothing less mute than stands bereft of spectators.

At Wembley, shouts from the 1966 World Cup, which England won, still resound, and if you listen very closely you can hear groans from 1953 when England fell to the Hungarians. Montevideo’s Centenario Stadium sighs with nostalgia for the glory days of Uruguayan soccer. Maracanã is still crying over Brazil’s 1950 World Cup defeat. At Bombonera in Buenos Aires, drums boom from half a century ago. From the depths of Azteca Stadium, you can hear the ceremonial chants of the ancient Mexican ball game. The concrete terraces of Camp Nou in Barcelona speak Catalan, and the stands of San Mamés in Bilbao talk in Basque. In Milan, the ghost of Giuseppe Meazza scores goals that shake the stadium bearing his name. The final match of the 1974 World Cup, won by Germany, is played day after day and night after night at Munich’s Olympic Stadium. King Fahd Stadium in Saudi Arabia has marble and gold boxes and carpeted stands, but it has no memory or much of anything to say.

Ukraine: A military-industrial complex to die fo By Gregory J Moore - Pepe Escobar Suggestion

It seems that one of the most important dimensions of Russia's fixation on Ukraine is one little discussed in the mainstream media. That dimension, namely the importance to Moscow of Ukraine's surprisingly well developed military industrial complex, is a key reason Russian President Vladimir Putin won't let go of Ukraine. Moreover, the bulk of Ukraine's military industrial


complex is in Ukraine's south and east, which adds clarity to Russia's focus on those parts of Ukraine.

Readers may remember the apocalyptic Hollywood thriller, 2012, and the Russian tycoon who owned an enormous jet loaded with exotic sports cars, boasting of the plane, "It's Russian". Well, the truth is, it wasn't Russian. It was Ukrainian. It was an Antonov AN225, the world's largest airplane. Antonov, based near Kiev, also designed and manufactures a medium-size transport plane, the AN70, a series of gliders like the AN15, a regional jet (the AN148), and a series of advanced jet engines. In fact, the Russian president's office owns two AN148-100Es.

Ukraine is also home to Motor-Sich, a firm that designs and manufactures aircraft and helicopter engines, as well as turbine engines for pumps for gas, oil and other applications including power-generation. Basically all of Russia's military helicopters use engines made by Motor-Sich. The firm also makes the engines for Russia's Yak 160 fighter/trainer. Russian military analyst Vladimir Voronov says Russia has an ambitious plan to add 1,000 attack helicopters to its armed forces, but this would be almost impossible without Motor Sich's provision of engines.
