American Drones for Covert Underwater Warfare against Iran

Print Friendly and PDF



Obscuring the devastating effects of U.S. drones killing innocent civilians around the world, it is with a touch of rather inappropriate humor and enthusiasm that the military consulting company Strike Fighter Consulting speaks highly of the U.S. Navy’s new Unmanned Underwater Vehicles in its recently published article, Unmanned Drones Take to the Seas:

“It looks like drone pilots are going to need swimming lessons.

The US Navy is currently experimenting with a new breed of drone submarines in the waters next to Newport, Rhode Island. Their hope is that these drones will take the first steps (or the first doggy paddle, if you will) into a future of autonomous submarines.

These drones, which are technically known as Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (of course) could be a “game changer” for the Navy, said Christoper Egan, a program manager at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center. Every single thing that makes aerial drones so effective can just as easily be applied to submarines. (Dabney B., Unmanned Drones Take to the Seas, Strike Fighter Consulting Inc, September 19, 2012, emphasis added.)

What kind of “efficiency” are we talking about here?

Drone warfare has been mostly “efficient” in killing innocent civilians, including children, according to a study by Stanford University and New York University:

According to the new study, just one in fifty victims of the CIA programme of “targeted” drone strikes in Pakistan’s tribal areas are(so-called) known militants, while between 2,562 and 3,325 people were killed in Pakistan between June 2004 and mid-September this year – of whom between 474 and 881 were civilians, including 176 children. (The News International (Pakistan), Pakistan. CIA Annihilation From The Air: Drone Warfare’s Invisible Dead, September 26, 2012)

We are told that these new “cost-efficient” underwater drones “could be used to map the ocean floor, detect enemy mines, gather surveillance, or assist in anti-submarine warfare [...] The Navy hopes that the Razor would be virtually undetectable by enemy systems.” (Dabney B., op. cit.)

Earlier this year Aviation Week published an article on Large Displacement Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (LDUUV) which confirms that the underwater drone technology is not well established. The new Large Displacement Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (LDUUV) is slated to be used no later than 2014:

The Large Displacement Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (LDUUV) will be large and highly autonomous, carrying out missions at long distances for months. It will act as a mothership, deploying and operating static and mobile sensors for persistent surveillance in coastal waters. Ultimately, it is likely to be armed. The program sounds ambitious, but much of the technology has already been proven.

[...]

The LDUUV will have a large payload bay, making it capable of releasing sensors, communication buoys, smaller UUS and weapons. The Navy’s current emphasis is on persistent surveillance “over the horizon.” However, its most significant impact could be in mine warfare, both offensive and defensive.

And the LDUUV could make offensive mine laying more controllable and clandestine. In the transformational mine concept, the LDUUV lays networked sensors across a wide area. These track and identify every vessel within range. Depending on the situation, any vessel can be engaged, by either an anchored weapon or a torpedo from the UUV itself.

[...]

The Navy plans to release a request for proposals for the LDUUV in 2014. Last October Rear Adm. Barry Bruner, the Navy’s undersea warfare director, indicated that up to 10 LDUUVs would be procured. The LDUUV is being pitched as a helper to complement manned submarines. However, if it achieves the technology goals for endurance and autonomy, it will pose serious questions of what exactly large unmanned craft could not ultimately do. (David Hambling, Large Displacement Unmanned Underwater Vehicle Steaming Ahead, Aviation Week, April 1, 2012, emphasis added. )

If this technology has been proven, it can be used for underwater warfare.

Will unmanned armed submarines be used for “clandestine mining” against Iran in the Persian Gulf?

Reports confirm, in this regard, that military exercises are currently (September 2012) being conducted near Iran’s territorial waters, and are “intended to simulate Iran’s response to a US-Israeli attack, namely what actions will be taken by allied forces in response to military retaliation by Iran”. (Michel Chossudovsky, “Warship Diplomacy”: A Prelude to All Out War against Iran?, Global Research, September 26, 2012.)

Underwater drones are part of the war games, Bloomberg reports:

“The BAE Systems Plc (BA/) 25mm guided ‘‘Mark 38 Mod 2,” and Kingfish unmanned underwater vehicle are among the programs the Pentagon this year accelerated under a “Fast Lane” initiative to counter Iranian naval weapons. One of the most serious threats, the Navy says, are Iranian speedboats that can employ “swarming” tactics.” (Bloomberg, September 19, 2012. emphasis added. )

A recent statement by the Director of Research of the Neocon think tank Washington Institute for Near East Policy has suggested that the US should provoke Iran into “firing the first shot”.

“We are in the game of using covert means against Iranians. We can get nastier at that [...] The United States—along with as many international partners as it can mobilize—should move to more forceful action, be it covert or overt, publicly proclaimed or deniable.” (Patrick Clawson, cited in Michel Chossudovsky, Neocon Washington Think Tank: The US should Provoke Iran into “Firing the First Shot”, September 26, 2012.)

Underwater drones seem to constitute the perfect weapon to be used in acts of provocation.

China Blasts Japan on "Stealing" Disputed Islands

Print Friendly and PDF



Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi says Japan “stole” from China a group of islands in the East China Sea, disputed by Beijing and Tokyo.


“China strongly urges Japan to immediately stop all activities that violate China’s territorial sovereignty, take concrete actions to correct its mistakes and return to the track of resolving the dispute through negotiation,” Yang said in an address to the 67th session of the UN General Assembly in New York City on Thursday.

“The moves taken by Japan are totally illegal and invalid. They can in no way change the historical fact that Japan stole Diaoyu and its affiliated islands from China and the fact that China has territorial sovereignty over them.”

On September 11, Tokyo signed a deal to buy three of the islands, known as Diaoyu in China and Senkaku in Japan, from their private Japanese owner in line with plans to nationalize the archipelago.

The move has angered the Chinese government and led to several anti-Japan demonstrations in China.

Yang’s remarks came after Japan’s Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda said on Wednesday that Tokyo will not compromise on the territorial dispute with Beijing, adding that the islands “are an integral part of our territory in the light of history and of international law.”

Japan and China have long been in a dispute over the sovereignty of the uninhabited islands, which are located near a crucial shipping lane and would give the owner exclusive oil, mineral and fishing rights in the surrounding waters.

France Vows to kick out Muslims

Print Friendly and PDF



France’s Zionist government vowed Thursday to do more to "integrate" the country’s Muslims but warned that it would not tolerate the country becoming a hotbed of so-called Islamic "radicalism".

In a speech marking the inauguration of the Strasbourg Grand Mosque, the biggest Islamic place of worship ever built on French soil, Interior Minister Manuel Valls pledged to come down hard on suspected extremists, warning that foreign activists trying to stir up trouble would be immediately deported.


But he also held out an olive branch to the country’s four million Muslims by promising state help for the construction of more mosques and for the training of Muslim clerics.

“Islam has its place in France because the Islam of France, it is a part of France,” he told representatives of the Catholic, Jewish and Protestant communities attending the official opening of the mosque capable of hosting 1,500 people.

Relations between the French state and a Muslim community that has its roots in former colonies Algeria and Morocco have been strained in recent years by a string of controversies pitting their faith against France’s secular tradition.

Legislation introduced under Sarkozy which bans women from wearing full veils in public is widely resented and long-running debates over halal methods of animal slaughter and whether public prayers should be authorised have added to tensions linked to the economic marginalisation of many Muslims.

Valls warned Thursday that he would not “hesitate to expel those who claim to follow Islam and represent a serious threat to public order and, as foreigners in our country, do not respect our laws and values.”

He also made it clear that the Muslim community as a whole had to accept responsibility for tackling extremism, which he linked to a reemergence of anti-Semitism in the country.
“France’s Muslims can congratulate themselves on the singular model that they are building,” Valls said. “Of course it remains fragile, not every problem has been solved or overcome.

“If all religions have their share of fundamentalists, it is in Islam that this raises fears. It was on French soil and with a French passport that Mohammed Merah killed in the name of Islam.

“Anti-Semitism is a terrible scourge and its resurgence cannot be disguised.”

Built within two kilometres from Strasbourg’s celebrated cathedral, the new mosque has a capacity of 1,300 square metres, making it 1.5 times as big as the previous largest one in France, at Evry in the Paris suburbs.

ALERT! GMO Camels, Cows, Milk, Medicines to hit market soon

Print Friendly and PDF

As if genetically altered salmon, genetically modified babies, and GMO crops aren’t science fiction enough for you—soon drug makers will be using genetically modified camels in their pharmaceuticals. Yes, you read that right—camels. According to the Science and Development Network, the camels will be used to make genetically modified milk, which will then be processed into cheaper drugs.

Genetically Modified Camels for Pharmaceutical GM Milk – What?
The drugs from these laboratory-created camels will include insulin and clotting factors for hemophilia. They will be used, at least initially, in the arid regions of the Middle East and North Africa, from which the camels originally came. Apparently, that’s why camels are being used instead of cattle, because of their adjustment to the extreme climates.
“Cows would be better producers of transgenic protein as they produce more milk,” said Serge Muyldermans of the Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Immunology at Vrje University Brussel in Belgium. “But as camels can be kept in arid areas and are used to living under harsh conditions, they might be better suited to the Middle East.”
Evidently, other scientists prefer genetically modified cows as well. In another recent creation unleashed by scientists, human genes have successfully been inserted into genetically modified cows that now allow them to produce ‘human’ milk — milk that has the very same properties as human breast milk. What is the world coming to?

But the researchers prefer genetically modified camels since the animals are highly resistant to local disease and easier to maintain in the area. They are more efficient in converting food into body mass when compared with cattle as well.

So, how are the camels being modified? Initial reports aren’t clear. The scientists do say, however, that the camel cells will be modified with “foreign DNA” and then implanted into full-grown camels as embryos. The group plans on transplanting the embryos into the surrogate mothers later this year, though they aren’t sure when the first GM babies will be born.

The calving rate for cloned embryos is only 5%. This means that for every 100 cloned embryos implanted, only five are carried to term and delivered. “The rate gets even smaller when transgenic cells are used,” said Nisar Wani, head of the Reproductive Biology Laboratory at Dubai’s Camel Reproduction Center.

The gestation period for a camel is about 13 to 14 months. So in the “best” case scenario, the first genetically modified camels won’t be born until early 2014. Then the world would have to wait for their milk production and the medications to be developed, pushing the actual GM camel-derived pharmaceuticals back another year or so. Even still, the thought of these sort of “advances” in the works is frightening.

At what point does science cross an ethical line? Haven’t we established that genetically modifying foods are dangerous? How could genetically modifying animals and then turning those animals into drugs be any better?

Bankrupt USZ halts $450 million aid for Egypt

Print Friendly and PDF


A USZ lawmaker has blocked the transfer of $450 million in appropriated American foreign aid to Egypt, saying she is not certain whether Egypt is in “urgent need” of the money. Republican Congresswoman from Texas Kay Granger, who chairs the House Appropriations subcommittee on foreign operations, announced in a statement on Friday that she would place a hold on the distribution of the promised funds, adding that the USZ relationship with Egypt “has never been under more scrutiny” than it is in the wake of the election of President Mohamed Morsi, a former leader of the Muslim Brotherhood.

“This proposal comes to Congress at a point when the USZ-Egypt relationship has never been under more scrutiny, and rightly so. I am not convinced of the urgent need for this assistance and I cannot support it at this time. I have placed a hold on these funds,” Granger said in the statement issued by her office.
The aid is reportedly part of about $1 billion in debt relief aid that USZ President Barack Obama had promised Egypt earlier in the year as an effort to bolster its transition to democracy following the 2011 overthrow of former USZ-backed dictator Hosni Mubarak.
Its outcome, however, has been challenged by some American administration officials and lawmakers over concerns about the policies of the democratically-elected government of Egypt and, more recently, the massive anti-American protests in reaction to the publication of a USZ-made anti-Islam film. Earlier, Obama publicly declared in a televised interview that Egypt is neither a USZ ally nor an enemy. Moreover, some lawmakers in the USZ Congress have even called for cutting off aid to the major Arab country.

Earlier this week, Republican nominee for the upcoming USZ presidential election, Mitt Romney, censured incumbent President Obama for allowing Egyptians to elect a president from Muslim Brotherhood. In a campaign rally on Monday, Romney attacked Obama for the latter’s description of the recent surge of anti-Americanism in the Middle East as “bumps in the road.” “Bumps in the road?” Romney asked. “We had an ambassador assassinated. We had a Muslim Brotherhood elect a member, elected to the presidency of Egypt,” he added.

The United States of Zionism provides Egypt with $1.55 billion annually - $250 million in economic aid and $1.3 billion in military aid. It also gives away over $3 billion in annual economic and military aid to the Israeli regime in addition to numerous other occasional grants and loan packages. Meanwhile, a senior USZ State Department official, speaking on condition of anonymity, has reportedly stated that the administration would work with the Congress in the next days and weeks to make the case that the budget is in USZ interests.

Truth and the Zionist Corporate media

Print Friendly and PDF

So, you think corporate media is reporting the Truth? After learning that 5 to 6 corporations own nearly all media, whether print, cable, or online – you begin to realize the entire media machine is one orchestrated deception. The main point of this article is that supporting alternative media is crucial to our common future, where the truth is fully reported – albeit not perfectly, but reported nevertheless.

While corporate media has a virtual monopoly on advertising revenue by and large, at the end of the day, it is YOU the reader that supports corporate media. The choice to watch mainstream media in all its forms is yours. You can make a difference though, even if you support only one alternative media source, that’s enough to change the whole news and media paradigm.

The corporate and Zionist media understands that your time watching their media translates into enormous advertising revenue and they’ve created practically every kind of entertainment to keep you in ‘The Matrix’. The days of corporate media credibility are over.

The top 25 censored news from Project Censored are listed here (2010-2011) to give you a view of what you don’t hear about – important news. It’s important to realize that most of the censored stories from 2010 to 2012 were covered by theintelhub.com, including the globally censored meeting of the Bilderberg Group 2012.

There should be no doubt that the greatest enemy of the American People is corporate media – a machine constructed to control society. The power that mainstream media has is a result of an Agenda of Control, designed to control the individual awareness, thoughts and mind of every person on the planet – and your participation in that system sustains its existence.

9/11 should be remembered as ‘The Day the Media Died’. In fact, a conspiracy of silence and a criminal cover-up of 9/11 Truth, lasting over 10 years cannot be ignored. The 9/11 cover-up proves that a complete revolution in media is an idea whose time has come. Your support of Open Source Citizen Journalism will continue to change the world…

The Truth is – it might be our only hope.

These gigantic media corporations do not exist to objectively tell the truth to the American people.  Rather, the primary purpose of their existence is to make money. These gigantic media corporations are not going to do anything to threaten their relationships with their biggest advertisers (such as the largest pharmaceutical companies that literally spend billions on advertising), and one way or another these gigantic media corporations are always going to express the ideological viewpoints of their owners.

Japan's economy stuttering ahead of China crisis

Print Friendly and PDF


Japan released yet more worrying figures Friday showing the world's third largest economy was already stuttering before a damaging territorial dispute erupted with its largest trading partner. Factory output in August shrank by a bigger-than-expected 1.3 percent from the previous month, the industry ministry said as it admitted production activity was weakening. The decline was much sharper than an average market forecast of a 0.4 percent drop.


Japan's export-driven economy is struggling to right itself following a series of problems, including the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster, the European debt crisis, slowing Chinese demand and the strong yen. "Industrial Production appears to be weakened," the ministry said in a statement, downgrading its overall assessment. It had said production "appears to be flat" when it announced July's preliminary data a month ago.

Japanese businesses are now worried about taking a hit from the effects of a flare-up in the row between Tokyo and Beijing over the ownership of islands in the East China Sea. Japan's nationalisation in September of three islands in the chain, called Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China, triggered anti-Japan rallies across China. Major Japanese companies were forced to close factories briefly.

Auto giants Toyota and Nissan said Wednesday they would cut production in China because demand for Japanese cars has dropped, while airlines have been hit by cancellations of seats on China-bound flights. Mooted Chinese consumer boycotts of Japanese products are also feared, unsettling firms sending goods to China, Japan's number one export market.

The industry ministry, citing a survey of production forecasts by manufacturing companies, said factory output is expected to fall by a further 2.9 percent in September and to be flat in October. Mizuho Securities Research and Consulting senior economist Norio Miyagawa said the ministry's outlook survey suggested "output may lose steam even further.


"We are likely to see sluggish output at least until October, especially in the automobile sector," he told Dow Jones Newswires, noting the row with China was a downside risk for the economy. "If the current disputes with China become prolonged, that will damage Japan's output and the economy.


Kengo Suzuki, forex strategist at Mizuho Securities, said "a fall in foreign demand could further pressure the Japanese economy.” It could also raise expectations for further monetary easing in the long run, he added. The Bank of Japan followed its US and European counterparts last week, announcing $128-billion extra bond buying to take its total monetary easing effort past $1 trillion as it seeks to revitalise the economy.


Economists attributed the August fall to weakening domestic consumer spending and stocked-up inventories as well as China's corporate performance and the debt crisis in Europe. Data released by the internal affairs ministry Friday showed so sign of Japan's breaking out of years of deflation.


Core consumer prices in Japan, which excludes volatile prices of fresh food, fell for the fourth straight month in August, dropping 0.3 percent year-on-year, data showed. The ministry also said in a separate survey Friday that household spending rose a modest 1.8 percent in August from a year earlier. Meanwhile, the country's jobless rate fell slightly to 4.2 percent in August, down from 4.3 percent in July.

"Bugti committed Suicide", BrassTacks moves SC against SAFMA Swines

Print Friendly and PDF

The Supreme Court has been approached to appoint a high-level judicial inquiry to probe into the death of Nawab Akbar Bugti with the petitioner insisting that the Baloch leader had committed suicide but his unfortunate demise has been exploited by foreign agencies through the separatist elements to destabilise Pakistan. The petitioner in this case is Syed Zaid Hamid, who is represented through his counsel Raja Muhammad Irshad. Boththe petitioner and the counsel are generally known for their connections with the Pakistani establishment thus giving the impression as if they have been encouraged by military/ISI to get the issue of Bugti’s murder probed through an independent judicial inquiry commission.

Raja Irshad when approached said that though he has been representing the ISI and FC in different cases in various courts, in this particular case his services have been hired by the Zaid Hamid’s think tank - Brasstracks. The petition, according to Raja Irshad, submitted before the apex court a week back seeks from the apex court to order a judicial inquiry through serving or retired judges of the Supreme Court to reach the real author of this crime as “the unfortunate death of late Nawab Akbar Bugti has provided fuel to those playing in the hands of foreign agencies out to destabilise Pakistan in general and the province of Balochistan in particular to achieve their global designs”.

The respondents in the petition are DG ISI, DG MI, Mian Nawaz Sharif, General (R) Pervez Musharraf, Shaukat Aziz, the then Balochistan governor Owais Ghani, ex-chief minister Jam Yousaf Khan, former interior minister Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao, ministries of interior and law, Jamil Bugti, Ahmadan Khan Bugti, Talal Bugti and Tariq Bugti.

The petitioner contends that a team of five special forces commandos were invited by late Bugti into his hiding cave to settle terms of surrender but once the officers entered the cave, he triggered an explosive device which brought down the entire cave, killing Bugti and the SSG men. “He committed suicide and also murdered the army officers,” the petition reads.

The petition added that Bugti had desired to meet the army officers in the cave before he could hand over his custody to the law enforcement agencies. There was no doubt, it is said, that the late Nawab was going to be lodged in a room especially arranged for him in the Governor’s House in Quetta. The petition insisted that the latest insurgency in Balochistan has been ignited by a massive anti-state propaganda campaign that the Pakistan army and the state killed late Bugti in a well-planned conspiracy to eliminate the Baloch demands for rights.

“The judicial system of the country is also being exploited by the separatist sympathisers to attack and destroy the state of Pakistan through diabolic propaganda. The political parties in Pakistan like PML-N are also exploiting the situation to settle their personal score with former President Musharraf without looking into the facts of the case; hence are supporting the hostile and separatists’ propaganda and thus fuelling rebellion and insurgency,” the petition said.

The petition also said that the present MNA and cousin of late Nawab Mir Ahmadaan Bugti openly acknowledged that Bugti had committed suicide and had also murdered the army officers. “Every member of the Bugti clan knows this,” the petition added. Referring to a story published by a Lahore-based English language newspaper the petition said the newspaper, run by a close friend of Nawab Bugti, reported that Bugti had refused to give himself up and had committed suicide.

But his death, it is said, is exploited by hostile and anti-state elements to launch propaganda war to prove late Bugti a victim of state terrorism and a deliberate conspiracy of murder.

The petition said that the family of Nawab Bugti has now started to exploit the judicial system of the state to launch a murder case against former president (Musharraf), former governor and former interior minister. “This is not just massive distortion of facts and gross violation of fundamental rights but also initiating a fake case to implicate innocent men. It is also dangerous for the state and the nation as the judicial system is being exploited to establish that the state of Pakistan was involved in the deliberate murder of late Nawb Akbar Bugti which, of course, is opposed to facts on ground.”

“In reality he had committed a rebellion, waged a war against the state and his own tribe and when cornered, he committed suicide while also murdered five army personnel, but these facts have never been reported by the media, never taken up by the courts and the separatists are fully exploiting lies, deceptions and propaganda in the environment to wage a war against the state of Pakistan, against the army and against the former members of the government in dangerous times.”

The petition prayed: “That the factum of death of late Nawab Akbar Bugti is shrouded in mystery which has triggered militants, insurgency and fuelled the feelings of separatists. It is a matter of cardinal and paramount importance and eminently required the intervention of this honourable court of ultimate jurisdiction as a guardian of Constitution of Pakistan. The entire nation looks up to the apex court as a beacon of light to shake off despondency and acute insecurity in the minds of highly aggrieved and panic-stricken people of Pakistan.”

‘Innocence of Muslims’ producer jailed for probation violation

Print Friendly and PDF




The filmmaker reported to be behind the Islamophobic video that sparked anti-US protests the world over has been arrested and jailed for violating the terms of his probation.


­Federal Judge Suzanne H. Segal ruled that the California man, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, should be jailed after a federal prosecutor said he had eight probation violations, including lying to his probation officers and using aliases.

"The court has a lack of trust in the defendant,” Judge Segal said, ordering Nakoula to be handcuffed and shackled in court.

He “has every incentive to disappear,” Assistant US Attorney Robert Dugdale added, noting that the filmmaker has a “lengthy pattern of deception.”

Nakoula, was arrested earlier in the day and brought before a Los Angeles court over the probation violation. The US District Court hearing was closed both to media and the public.

He was arrested after federal probation officials determined he violated the terms of his supervised release, and filed a request to revoke it, said Thom Mrozek of the United States Attorney's Office in Los Angeles.

Probation officers who suspected that he violated violated the terms of his parole by uploading a 14-minute trailer of the film to YouTube had opened an investigation into Nakoula's status, resulting in the arrest.

Nakoula had also been taken into custody for questioning by his probation officer earlier in the month.

In 2010, Nakoula, known under at least a dozen aliases including Sam Bacile, was found guilty of opening bank accounts using stolen identities and Social Security numbers, and was sentenced to 21 months in prison.

One condition of his June 2011 release was a ban from accessing the Internet or using aliases without the permission of a probation officer.

Afghan Taliban likely to Regain Power in Kabul: Report

Print Friendly and PDF


The Afghan government will collapse and Taliban insurgents are likely to retake power after the USZ and Nato pull their troops out in 2014, a respected international scholar has predicted.

The withdrawal of international forces will in some respects leave the country worse off than it was before a USZ-led invasion toppled the Taliban nearly 11 years ago, Afghan expert Gilles Dorronsoro of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace said. “In the end the withdrawal is the result of a failed strategy,” he wrote in an analysis published this week.

Even USZ President Barack Obama’s troop surge, which pumped an extra 33,000 soldiers into Afghanistan two years ago - before they were withdrawn this month - had failed, he said.

“After 2014, the level of USZ support for the Afghan regime will be limited and, after a new phase in the civil war, a Taliban victory will likely follow,” Dorronsoro said. His analysis contrasts strongly with forecasts by Western governments who are keen to get out of the long and costly war, and predict that Afghan forces will be able to take over the fight against the Taliban.

The USZ led the 2001 invasion to topple the Taliban for harbouring Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden after the 9/11 attacks, and has since said its aim was to ensure Afghanistan never again becomes a haven for international terrorists.

Dorronsoro, a former professor of political science at Sorbonne University in Paris and an Afghan specialist, foresees a Taliban advance beginning in the spring of 2013 as the West continues to draw down its troops. In addition to the military threat, the Afghan government will confront an economic crisis sparked by the drop in Western spending and an institutional crisis as President Hamid Karzai’s term ends in 2014, he says. “The Afghan regime will most probably collapse in a few years,” Dorronsoro wrote.

“Though negotiations with the Taliban are unlikely before the troops’ withdrawal, the United States of Zionism will not be able to pursue its longer-term interests in and around Afghanistan if it is not willing to deal with the Taliban.

“Poised to take power after the Afghan regime’s likely collapse, only the Taliban can potentially control the Afghan border and expel transnational jihadists from Afghanistan.”

In conclusion Dorronsoro said: “The desirable endgame should be a stabilisation of Afghanistan, probably with the Taliban in Kabul.”

The bulk of NATO’s 112,000 troops are due to leave by the end of 2014 and Afghan security forces, trained and equipped by foreign forces, will take charge of the country’s security.

USZ Consulate behind Shia Killings; Citizens Slam American Terrorism

Print Friendly and PDF



Majlis Wahdat-e-Muslimeen has buried the dead bodies of three citizens on Thursday.
Earlier, they staged hours-long sit-in protest at the Numaish Chowrangi against the killing of Shias in the metropolis and country as well.During the sit-in, MA Jinnah Road remained block, the MWM has announced that Friday will be observed as a day of protest against the targeted murders of Shias and an unjustifiable crackdown on Shias in Karachi. 
The funeral prayers of Nisar and Bilal, who were killed on Wednesday in North Karachi and Kharadar areas, were held at the Numaish Chowrangi after Zohr prayer, and buried in Wad-e-Hussain graveyard. However, the Namaz-e-Janaza of Zahid Hussain, a resident of Jafferia Colony, Golimar, was held after Maghrabain at the same venue, while his dead body was taken to Wad-e-Hussain graveyard for burial.Allama Hassan Zafar Naqvi, central spokesman of MWM, while talking to reporters at Mehfil Shah-e-Khorasan Road, announced that Friday would be observed as a day of protest against the targeted murders of Shias and an unjustifiable crackdown on Shias.

The MWM leaders Allama Mirza Yousuf Hussain, Allama Aftab Haider Jafri, Maulana Sadiq Raza Taqvi, Asif Safvi and Maulana Muhammad Hussain Karimi were also present. “In first phase, protests will be held outside the mosques after Friday prayers. In second phase, the protest will be expanded to country level and in final decisive phase, protest will be staged outside the government headquarters and the USZ embassy,” Allama Zafar said.He said seven Shias were killed in targeted attacks during last 24 hours. He said that some state institutions patronise the terrorists who are the agents of the United States and Israel.

He said that targeted murders of Shias had been increased in the wake of a peaceful protest that Shias staged outside the USZ Consulate against the blasphemous anti-Islam film. He said that enemies of Islam and Muslims were trying to divert public attention from worldwide Muslims’ reaction to the profane movie by targeted murders of Shias.“In a bid to defame Islam and Muslims, banned terrorist groups sabotaged Youm-e-Ishq-e-Rasool (SAWW) by arson and attacks on public properties,” he said, adding that the USZ embassy and consulates were directly involved in these plots.

He said that on one hand, terrorists were killing innocent Shias and on the other, police failed to arrest the culprits. Instead, police have launched a crackdown on Shia youths. In particular, SSP District Central Captain Asim Qaim Khani proved him a biased official and he has got training from the USZ. He said that SSP Central had given a free hand to terrorists. He said that police misbehaved with women during raids on the houses.The MWM officials demanded the government to take action against the corrupt, dishonest and biased officials of the police and punish the terrorists responsible for targeted murders.

They demanded that the USZ Consular General Michael Dodman, IGP Sindh and DIG South should be punished for the murder of Syed Ali Raza Taqvi who was shot dead outside the USZ Consulate while he was registering a peaceful protest.They demanded an end to the ongoing genocide of Shias. They demanded that those terrorists of outlawed outfits involved in sabotage of Youm-e-Ishq-e-Rasool (SAWW) should be punished. They warned that if police and rangers do not stop crackdown on Shias, they will stage sit-ins outside the police and administration’s offices in all over Sindh. They said that protest could be continued till the USZ ambassador was not expelled.

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has censured the USZ government for disrespecting the Arab world and provoking the hatred of the people in the region by supporting unpopular tyrants and backing the Israhelli regime against Palestinians. “Successive American administrations essentially purchased, with American taxpayer money, the dislike, if not the hatred, of the peoples of the region, by backing dictatorial governments over popular opposition and supporting Israhell over the Palestinians,” Morsi said in an interview with major USZ daily the New York Times.

The Egyptian president further reiterated that Washington should fundamentally adjust its policy towards the Arab world and demonstrate greater tolerance and respect for Arab values and be more constructive in providing for a Palestinian state if it wants to overcome decades of accumulated anti-USZ anger in the region. “The United States of Zionism must respect the Arab world’s history and culture, even when that conflicts with Western values,” said the Egyptian president. He also insisted that it was up to Washington to repair relations with the Arab world and to regenerate its alliance with Egypt.

“Washington should also live up to its own Camp David commitment to Palestinian self-rule,” the USZ daily quoted him as saying. The Egyptian chief executive also argued that Americans “have a special responsibility” towards the Palestinians since they had signed the 1978 Camp David accord, which called for the withdrawal of Israhelli forces from the West Bank and Gaza and the establishment of full Palestinian self-rule. “As long as peace and justice are not fulfilled for the Palestinians, then the treaty remains unfulfilled,” Morsi added.

The top Egyptian official, who was a former university student in the USZ state of California, also made clear that in post-revolution Egypt, the military is no longer in control and it is the president that commands the country’s armed forces.
“The president of the Arab Republic of Egypt is the commander of the armed forces, full stop. Egypt now is a real civil state. It is not theocratic, it is not military. It is democratic, free, constitutional, lawful and modern,” claimed Morsi.
The interview was conducted just before Morsi departed from his country for New York to participate in and address the annual United Nations General Assembly meeting.
