From Vietnam To Syria: The Big Lie Has Killed Millions.

By Jerry Alatalo

United States President Lyndon Johnson lied through his teeth to the world on August 4, 1964. Johnson was not only criminally responsible for initiating the Vietnam War based on a “false flag” deception – the Gulf of Tonkin incident – but was a major force behind the murder of President John F. Kennedy.

Estimates of Vietnamese deaths range from 2-4 million, and 59,000 Americans perished in the many years of horrific war after Johnson’s Big Lie.

Among Johnson’s other crimes related to “false flag” operations designed for instigating war, he colluded with Israeli officials in the U.S.S. Liberty attack (Summer 1967), where Israeli forces received orders to destroy the vessel and kill all U.S. personnel on board. It was the conspirators’ plan that Egypt would be falsely blamed, necessitating U.S. military involvement, and would have worked but for a Liberty naval officer’s ability to configure a crude communications setup (the Israeli attack knocked out all communications equipment) allowing transmission of a message for help, defeating the conspiracy.

(One of the survivors of the U.S.S. Liberty attack of 1967 commented here on a past post dedicated to the historic scandal that “…Johnson wanted us all dead.”)

Johnson – had the U.S.-Israeli false flag operation been successful and all U.S. personnel been killed – had prepared plans to drop a nuclear weapon on Egypt’s largest city Cairo, making it the 3rd use of nuclear weapons on a population in world history after Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

These are just a few examples of Lyndon Johnson’s profoundly criminal, heinous actions, others of which may never see the light of day, and are important to remember when attempting to measure the level of danger humanity faces today.

ne could describe the United Nations Security Council as a form of world courtroom in the sense that members sitting around the table are effectively presenting their views in a lawyer-like fashion. Perhaps, like in a typical court setting, United Nations Security Council meetings need an international panel of respected, retired men and women judges to preside over proceedings.

Given that all members of the Security Council are certainly aware of history and horrendously consequential false flags like the Gulf of Tonkin, Colin Powell’s telling of the Big Lie in 2003, etc., the lack of any time devoted to members wishing to ask questions of other members is detrimental to any efforts at arriving at the truth about the most serious situations on Earth.

What is noticeable, and worrying, about the statements by U.N. representatives of U.S., U.K. and France in meetings after the Idlib chemical attack of April 4 is their total silence on the possibility that terrorists may have carried out the attack in a false flag operation, despite their knowledge of history. Their silence on that possibility goes as far as not even acknowledging such historically verified events have occurred in the past, while at the same time not responding specifically to those making the legitimate assertions.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley was second-to-last to deliver a statement, followed by Syria’s Ambassador Bashar al Jaafari speaking to close the meeting. At the end of her statement, Ms. Haley directed her words to Mr. al Jaafari. Remember that in previous meetings convened to discuss the Idlib chemical attack, Ms. Haley warned the United States was willing, prepared and able to act alone, and that – after Donald Trump ordered the launch of Tomahawk missiles into Syrian territory – she again warned the U.S. was willing to do more.

In that light, people should consider the seriousness of the current state of world affairs. The greatest chance for preventing what could become a catastrophic military escalation in Syria lies in an international demand for Donald Trump to provide any and all evidence he says proves Syrian forces carried out the Idlib chemical weapon attack. Ms. Haley said:

“To Assad and the Syrian government – you have no friends in the world after your horrific actions. The United States is watching your actions very carefully. The days of your arrogance and disregard of humanity are over. Your excuses will no longer be heard. I suggest you look at this vote very carefully, and heed its warning.”

It is impossible to conclude otherwise but that Ms. Haley, in this April 2017 meeting of the United Nations Security Council, issued a direct, unambiguous, explicit threat of war against Syria.

The Syrian representative’s statement following being threatened with war, unfortunately, will most likely never be seen or discussed on any Western corporate media platform or inside governmental bodies. If that weren’t unfortunate enough, the important detailed relevant facts he presented will never become responded to by the U.N. representatives from America, the United Kingdom, and France. The question becomes: “If the truth cannot be sought and discussed at the United Nations Security Council, where on Earth can it be?”

The resolution authored by U.N. officials of the P-5 (Permanent Security Council states, holding veto power) U.S., U.K. and France contained language they knew would become vetoed by the P-5 Russian Federation (P-5 China abstained), because it would legitimize the attack by the U.S. of Syrian territory, violating the United Nations Charter and international law.

Either U.S. President Donald Trump responds to increasing demands from around the Earth to make public any and all of his evidence – or humanity is witnessing another massively destructive, criminal, and morally reprehensible Big Lie.

Time for humanity to act is of the essence.

Veteran Intelligence Professionals: “Trump Should Rethink Syria Escalation”

The Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity group has published a message directed to U.S. President Donald Trump of maximum importance. For the sake of peace on Earth, please seriously consider disseminating their profoundly urgent message as widely as possible.

Intel Today

“We write to give you an unambiguous warning of the threat of armed hostilities with Russia – with the risk of escalation to nuclear war. The threat has grown after the cruise missile attack on Syria in retaliation for what you claimed was a “chemical weapons attack” on April 4 on Syrian civilians in southern Idlib Province.”

Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)*

Former CIA analyst Ray McGovern

Two dozen ex-U.S. intelligence officials urge President Trump to rethink his claims blaming the Syrian government for the chemical deaths in Idlib and to pull back from his dangerous escalation of tensions with Russia. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY

President Donald Trump: Show The World Your Evidence.

By Jerry Alatalo

“Power must never be trusted without a check.” (Letter to Jefferson, February 2, 1816)

– JOHN ADAMS (1735-1826) Second President of the United States

hile plans at the United Nations for investigating the chemical atrocity in Idlib province Syria were in the infancy stage and not yet begun, the American president directed the U.S. military to fire 59 Tomahawk missiles into Syria from warships in the Mediterranean Sea. Mr. Trump told Americans and the world it was to deter and punish the Syrian military for carrying out the chemical attack.

Among the many questions which have become raised after Donald Trump ordered a military attack on a Syrian airbase inside that country, the one that is receiving greatest attention and focus is: “Where is Donald Trump’s evidence, and why isn’t he providing it?”

It’s a simple question, really. In the context of fundamental legal theory when one of the sides in a legal argument wishes to present their case to the jury, it is common knowledge that party needs to bring evidence, or proof to back their claims and assertions. However, the response to it by U.S. President Donald Trump is much more complex, and for decades Middle East scholars, researchers, writers and people of the region have dealt with and experienced associated consequences of U.S. geopolitical actions.

As of yet, Donald Trump has not made his case – provided evidence, or proof – justifying attacking Syria to Americans and people around the Earth. His choice as Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has not provided evidence either in the last two United Nations Security Council meetings, convened to focus on the Idlib chemical atrocity and U.S. missile response.

Here is what Donald Trump said shortly after ordering the missile attacks on Syria:

“My fellow Americans… Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad launched a horrible chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians using deadly nerve agent. Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women and children. It was a slow and brutal death for many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this barbaric attack.”

“No child of God should ever suffer such horror. Tonight I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched. It is in this vital national security interests of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.”

“There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the chemical weapons convention, and ignored the urging of the U.N. Security Council. Years of previous attempts at changing Assad’s behavior have all failed and failed very dramatically. As a result, the refugee crisis continues to deepen and the region continues to destabilize, threatening the United States and its allies.”

“Tonight I call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria, and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types. We ask for God’s wisdom as we face the challenge of our very troubled world. We pray for the lives of the wounded and for the souls of those who have passed, and we hope that as long as America stands for justice, then peace and harmony will in the end prevail.”

“Good night and God bless America, and the entire world. Thank you.”

***

“There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons…”

Donald Trump’s address was extremely concise, wholly non-specific with regard to legal aspects of the military decision and action, while adding up to only a few hundred words. Perhaps Mr. Trump never anticipated Americans and people around the Earth wishing to hear him describe his legal perspective, and see his evidence making the case that Assad was responsible.

We the jury – citizens of America and the world – demand Donald Trump present any and all evidence he used to back the decision for launching cruise missiles on the sovereign nation of Syria…

This is an urgent demand.

Historic Yemen Peace Rally Draws Sea Of Humanity.

By Jerry Alatalo

Saudi-led war crimes, destruction of Yemen and its people reaches two years

ne can’t help but wonder about the nature of U.S. President Donald Trump and his administration’s response to images of  hundreds of thousands of Yemeni people in Yemen’s capitol city of Sana’a, gathered in protest against continued Saudi war crimes, and calling for peace.

Perhaps Mr. Trump will go to his Twitter account and comment on the massive gathering, which looks from video recordings to surpass one million in attendance, with something along the lines of: “Fantastic rally in Yemen! The size of the crowd must have broken the record… Super organizers! Just fantastic and beautiful..”

People will remember Mr. Trump leading the way in what he described as a “record” length of applause during a presidential address to Congress, and that the applause record related with recent U.S. military events in Yemen. One might not become surprised or disappointed if Mr. Trump has very different perceptions of the one record (set inside Congress), and the other – an absolutely massive gathering of Yemeni people demanding an end to the war.

Similarly, one has to wonder how British Prime Minister Theresa May and her people responded to images of the overflowing Sana’a crowd. Perhaps, like Mr. Trump and his administration, Ms. May’s group will remain silent for fear of people raising their voices to end weapons sales to Saudi Arabia’s royal family (you know, the owners of the country).

It is highly unlikely Donald Trump or Theresa May offers any approving, encouraging commentary – or responds at all – on the massive number of people gathered to demand peace after enduring two years of war. Unfortunately for the people of Yemen, both Ms. May and  Mr. Trump perceive their historic peace rally event as bad news and negatively.

Unfortunately for Ms. May and Mr. Trump, those who are following developments in Yemen perceive such an enormous display of human unity – focused on peace – as a positive development having the potential to inspire millions of others around the world.

“The Donald”: (Record applause…)… “Make Yemen great again!…”

But this is so much more serious…

War crimes, up to and including genocide

Saudi Arabia – with the full knowledge, criminal assistance, and weapons from the United States, Britain and others under Donald Trump, Theresa May, etc. – is guilty of the crime of genocide against the Yemeni people. Help bring peace soon to the suffering men, women and children of Yemen.
