Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth.
I always wondered WHY SOMEBODY didn't do something about that. Then I realized: I am SOMEBODY.

How the western #media promotes #war in #Syria through dangerous manipulation of the facts | Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. | Scoop.it

The plan of the CIA and the Friends of Syria to somehow seek an end to the war by increasing the flow of weapons is equally absurd. War will only produce more war. John Milton's sonnet, written during the English civil war in 1648 in praise of the Parliamentary General Sir Thomas Fairfax, who had just stormed Colchester, shows a much deeper understanding of what civil wars are really like than anything said by David Cameron or William Hague. He wrote:

Troika – #Greece : struggle to avoid €8.1 billion bailout tranche coming in …tranches #slavery | Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. | Scoop.it

The Troika is to meet Stournaras on Monday afternoon and the other ministers tomorrow Thursday. What they will agree upon it will directly being felt by my already empty pocket. And they will agree. Just in hope the bailout tranche of 8.1 billion euro will not be given in tranches but all the money will come in one paycheck. How will this money be used? To pay interest rates and other obligations. No a single cent will go to the average Greek., who is just asked to payback the famous bailouts.

What Greek ministers or government heralds as “Greek taxpayer cannot afford more taxes” are empty words. At the end, all governments since 2010 have bowed to the honorable men of the Troika.

#Americans file murder charges in Chris Stevens’ killing #Benghazi #Libya | Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. | Scoop.it

It is not known what the charges will actually entail — whether the US will try to seize Khatala or pressurise the Libyan authorities into arresting him. The Americans are reported to have said that they want the Libyans to make the move but any arrests or seizures could make the present security crisis in Benghazi look like a minor disturbance in comparison.

FBI officers have visited Benghazi to question witnesses. However, Khatala was reported by CNN as saying that he had met with neither them nor the Libyan investigators who told the Americans that he was involved.

Enrique Ferro's curator insight, August 9, 2013 8:15 PM

Naturally global hegemons abhor anyone standing up to them, which is clearly what Russia has been doing for the past decade.  At the UN, where Russia had been more accommodating to many US interests, after the US-backed monstrous assassination of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi on live TV and the rape of Libya in 2011, its appears Moscow got really fed up. 

Assassinating global leaders to the chuckling of Hillary Clinton on CBS News is definitely not on Moscow’s agenda.

“Al-Qaeda has had its own victory as well,” he said. “The dispersal of al-Qaeda is their victory.”

With al-Qaeda increasing the scope of its operation in Syria, the US could have a whole new front in its war on terror. The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 brought American troops to Afghanistan and Pakistan, and later to Iraq. In the decade-plus since, the US has launched drones over locales like Yemen and Somalia to take a stab at diminishing al-Qaeda’s presence. As hostilities increase in Syria, a new adversary could worsen the current situation.

#Wikileaks #Guca festival #USA tactical strike

#Wikileaks #Guca festival  #USA tactical strike | Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. | Scoop.it
In a "tactical strike" on anti-American sentiment, the Embassy brought in a U.S. Navy band to play at the annual brass band festival in Guca, in Serbia's nationalist-leaning heartland. While the appearance of the band in the rowdy, beer-lubricated environment of this festival of traditional Serbian music was a risk, the band was welcomed by officials, event organizers, and, most importantly, the people. There was a low spot during a late-night concert when the drunken crowd booed the band (and other international bands); but the positive reaction during the rest of six-day festival, and the almost jubilant support from national media, showed that the risk paid off. The band's impact shows that Serbs are ready for a change in tone, but Serbia's senior leadership must come up with more courageous language stressing the new phase in our relations. End Summary.

During the conversation, which took around half-an-hour, excluding the translation part, Putin’s approach was the same as usual, according to sources.

“The issue is not anymore an issue of Syria now. It has turned into a security and refugee issue for Turkey. Our civilian people have been dying because of the clashes taking place in our immediate vicinity. The Security Council shall step in There is a need to take measures which would prevent Syrian people from abandoning their countries and to decontaminate the border region from clashes. The UN Security council can make a decision to this end,” Erdoğan was quoted by the same sources as telling Putin, after explaining the incidents on the border with Syria one by one.

Everyone knows the competition between China and the US is key to 21st century international relations. But China’s strength still lags far behind that of the US. As China’s comprehensive strategic partner, Russia took the initiative in the Snowden case and came to the forefront of the rivalry with the US, which shows multipolar flexibility in global geopolitics. Russia’s action deserves respect from China.

This is where it gets funny:

 The Saudi prince also reassured Putin that “whatever regime comes after” Assad, it will be “completely” in the Saudis’ hands and will not sign any agreement allowing any Gulf country to transport its gas across Syria to Europe and compete with Russian gas exports, the diplomat said.

Right. Of course, if Saudi is found to have lied about this tiny factoid, it will be none other than the US who would step in and defend its brand new “allies” in the Syrian government.
