Andrew Bacevich ─ America's War for the Greater Middle East: A Military History
 
01:05:14
Andrew J. Bacevich discusses his new book, America’s War for the Greater Middle East: A Military History. From the end of World War II until 1980, virtually no American soldiers were killed in action while serving in the Greater Middle East. Since 1990, virtually no American soldiers have been killed in action anywhere else. What caused this shift? Andrew J. Bacevich, one of the country’s most respected voices on foreign affairs, offers an incisive critical history of this ongoing military enterprise—now more than thirty years old and with no end in sight. During the 1980s, Bacevich argues, a great transition occurred. As the Cold War wound down, the United States initiated a new conflict—a War for the Greater Middle East—that continues to the present day. The long twilight struggle with the Soviet Union had involved only occasional and sporadic fighting. But as this new war unfolded, hostilities became persistent. From the Balkans and East Africa to the Persian Gulf and Central Asia, U.S. forces embarked upon a seemingly endless series of campaigns across the Islamic world. Few achieved anything remotely like conclusive success. Instead, actions undertaken with expectations of promoting peace and stability produced just the opposite. As a consequence, phrases like “permanent war” and “open-ended war” have become part of everyday discourse. Connecting the dots in a way no other historian has done before, Bacevich weaves a compelling narrative out of episodes as varied as the Beirut bombing of 1983, the Mogadishu firefight of 1993, the invasion of Iraq in 2003, and the rise of ISIS in the present decade. Understanding what America’s costly military exertions have wrought requires seeing these seemingly discrete events as parts of a single war. It also requires identifying the errors of judgment made by political leaders in both parties and by senior military officers who share responsibility for what has become a monumental march to folly. This Bacevich unflinchingly does. Andrew J. Bacevich is a retired professor of history and international relations at Boston University. A graduate of the U.S. Military Academy, he served for twenty-three years as a commissioned officer in the United States Army. He received his PhD in American diplomatic history from Princeton. Before joining the faculty of Boston University in 1998, he taught at West Point and at Johns Hopkins University. His three most recent books—Breach of Trust, Washington Rules, and The Limits of Power—all hit the New York Times bestseller list.

The Serbs and other Balkan peoples alongside their allies from Western and Eastern Europe fought valiantly against overwhelming odds and although they lost, the foundation of the future resistance, that continued until the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire, was set. This battle was also remarkable due to the fact that leaders of both armies were killed during it. Prince Lazar Hrebeljanović died in the battle and Sultan Murad I was assassinated by the Serbian knight Miloš Obilić, who was killed shortly after. All three are considered martyrs by their people and the spirit of this battle is still part of the bitter animosity… This video was narrated by our good friend Officially Devin.

WW3 'Eager Lion 2012' - Biggest War Games Since Just Before Iraq War / All is NOT Well !
 
01:37
US Leads War Drill in Jordan -- Israel Not Invited (Illuminati reverse psychology deception) The United States is leading what it described as the "largest military exercises in the Middle East in 10 years" in Jordan on Tuesday. Eager Lion 2012 "is the largest exercise held in the region in the past ten years," Major General Ken Tovo, head of the US Special Operations Forces, told reporters in Amman. "Yesterday we began to apply the skills that we have developed over the last weeks in an irregular warfare scenario ... They will last for approximately the coming two weeks," he added. "The message that I want to send through this exercise is that we have developed the right partners throughout the region and across the world ... insuring that we have the ability to ... meet challenges that are coming to our nations," Tovo said. Over 12,000 soldiers are taking part in the war games, representing 19 countries, including Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Pakistan, Qatar, Britain, France, Italy, Spain and Australia. Jordanian army operations and training chief Major General Awni Adwan said the military exercise "has been in the planning phase for the past three years." "No forces will be deployed north ... the exercise is not connected to any real world event," Adwan said when asked if the war games were related to the ongoing violence in Jordan's northern neighbor Syria. "This has nothing to do with Syria. We respect the sovereignty of Syria. There is no tension between the Syrians and us. Our objectives are clear," Adwan said. Israel -- despite having extensive security agreements with Jordan -- was not invited to participate in the exercises. Several Arab nations participating in the drill are still formally at war with the Jewish state. Washington has granted Amman $2.4 billion in military and economic aid in the past five years, according to official figures Article source : http://www.sodahead.com/united-states/operation-eager-lion-2012-is-underway---do-you-think-this-will-spark-a-war-with-syria/question-2659471/

The latest security challenges facing NATO
 
13:48
A briefing by General Sir Adrian Bradshaw KCB OBE, Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe, set against the backdrop of the latest security challenges facing NATO and how this will impact upon UK priorities and commitments. The UK has the second largest defence budget within the Alliance but one that could feasibly be cut below NATO's mandated level of 2% of GDP. Fiscal considerations in the coming months must take into account UK commitments to the Alliance's collective defence and ensuring NATO's credibility in the face of evolving security challenges and the geopolitical landscape. With the ongoing tensions with Russia, the UK has pledged to contribute to NATO Assurance Measures in Eastern Europe, including contributing to the Baltic Air Policing Mission later this year and leading the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force in 2017. These and other challenges, such as the need for streamlining national political decision-making processes, the importance of conventional as well as nuclear deterrence and dealing effectively with hybrid warfare and non-traditional threats to our security was discussed during this briefing. General Sir Adrian Bradshaw KCB OBE is Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe. He joined the 14th/20th King’s Hussars in 1980. As a junior officer he served in Germany, Northern Ireland, Africa, the Middle East, South East Asia and the Falkland Islands, first as a tank troop leader and Regimental Intelligence Officer, and then detached from his Regiment flying helicopters followed by a further troop-level command tour. He commanded twice at squadron-level, on armour with his Regiment and then detached with another unit, serving in Germany, the Americas and the Balkans. From 1994-1996, he commanded the King’s Royal Hussars (KRH), first providing the enemy force at the UK Armoured Training Area in Alberta, Canada, and then as Battlegroup Commander on operations in Bosnia. After command, he went on to the UK Higher Command and Staff Course, and served in Military Operations in the MOD. On promotion to Brigadier, he went to 3rd (US) Army in Kuwait, planning for Land operations in Iraq. He then became Deputy Commander of US Task Force West in the Iraq region before Commanding the UK 7th Armoured Brigade in Iraq. After attending the Royal College of Defence Studies in London, he became a Component Director in the MoD, being promoted in post to Major General in 2007. In 2009, he took command of 1st (UK) Armoured Division based in Germany, training brigades for operations in Afghanistan. He has since attended the US Army Strategic Leadership Programme (Advanced) and the US Joint Pinnacle Course. He became Deputy Commander of ISAF in Afghanistan in late 2011 and Commander UK Land Forces in 2013. He assumed his current appointment as DSACEUR in March 2014. He has degrees in Agriculture (BSc Hons, Reading University 1979), Defence Studies (MA, King’s College London, 1991) and International Relations (MA, King’s College London, 2005). He has also been a Visiting Defence Fellow at Balliol College, Oxford University (2011).

1. Wide of joint military news briefing 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Major General Robert Catalanotti, Director of Exercises and Training at MacDill Air Force Base: (Answering a question whether the US will leave behind in Jordan any forces, patriot missiles or F-16 warplanes) "I'm very focused on inside the exercise. Now, as the Director of Exercises, I do not work operations here. I run the exercise with my good colleagues. If the government of Jordan decides to make that request that would have go back through Washington DC for decision, and they would have to plan the numbers to support that. But as of right now, in the exercise, I am not working that issue at all, I'm simply using those instruments here for our objectives in the exercise." 3. Cutaway of news briefing 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Major General Robert Catalanotti, Director of Exercises and Training at MacDill Air Force Base: "We all have chemical training from any activity, so we continue to build those objectives into any exercise that we do. So nothing is unique here in Jordan as it is in the Gulf countries that we are operate or in the United States that we exercise all the time." 5. Wide of media 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Major General Robert Catalanotti, Director of Exercises and Training at MacDill Air Force Base: "Before the exercise we have been working with a steady number of couple of hundred, as has been put out in the media many times. In this exercise right now, we have 4,500 Americans participating in this exercise." 7. Mid of Eager Lion logo 8. SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Major General Awni el-Edwan, Operation Chief of Staff, Jordan Armed Forces: "We haven't brought the Patriot for the sake of a struggle with Syria, we have brought the Patriot to be a part of Eager Lion's exercises. I would like to say that Jordan has the capabilities to defend its lands." 9. Wide of news briefing 10. SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Major General Awni el-Edwan, Operation Chief of Staff, Jordan Armed Forces: "I confirm that the Syrian opposition has not and will not participate in this exercise. We are dealing with countries, we are a neutral country, and you can see the participating countries on this logo." 11. Wide of media 12. SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Major General Awni el-Edwan, Operation Chief of Staff, Jordan Armed Forces: "It's part of the exercise how to deal with chemical attacks, to reduce its effects, and to confront chemical attacks on military and civilians. Regarding keeping military forces after the exercise, we have negotiated that. No forces will stay after the exercise unless there will be a request by the Jordanian government to keep the Patriot and F-16 jets. This is a political decision, we as military don't interfere in the political decisions, we execute orders only." 13. Wide of news briefing STORYLINE: Jordanian and US army officers have launched multi-national military exercises involving border security and irregular warfare in this key US ally in the region. The 12-day "Eager Lion" exercises bring together 8,000 personnel from 19 mainly Arab and European countries to bolster defence capabilities in the face of a possible flare-up from neighbouring Syria. Jordanian Major General Awni el-Edwan told reporters on Sunday Jordan did not intend to "attack anybody", while commenting on the annual exercises' first ever deployment of US Patriot missiles. He also said the US military would not leave any of its forces, Patriot missiles or F-16 warplanes behind on Jordanian soil after the the completion of the exercises. US Major General Robert Catalanotti, Director of Exercises and Training, reiterated that message. Jordan has also been jittery over reports of chemical weapons use in Syria's two-year civil war.

Russia's Intervention in Syria: Lessons Learned
 
01:23:38
In September 2015, Russia intervened militarily in Syria in support of the Syrian government. Over the next 15 months, Russia bolstered the Assad government in its efforts to retake large portions of the country and targeted Assad’s adversaries, often with considerable civilian cost. What has Russia learned from over a year of conflict? And what can we deduce from this conflict about Russian military capabilities and strategy? Ruslan Pukhov of the Center for the Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (CAST) in Moscow will join us to break down the lessons learned from this conflict.

Dr. John A. Nagl lectures at the 31st Annual Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz Lecture Series. Dr. Nagl served as an Armor Officer in the US Army for 20 years and is one of the most influential US military officers of his generation. He was heavily involved in the adoption of a counterinsurgency strategy in Iraq and Afghanistan in the mid-2000s. He also appeared on The Daily Show. Dr. Nagl graduated with distinction from West Point with the class of 1988 and received his masters degree from Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar. He served as a tank platoon commander during the First Gulf War. Recognizing the changing nature of warfare, he returned to Oxford to pursue a PhD. His dissertation, entitled Learning to Eat Soup with a Knife: Counterinsurgency Lessons from Malaya and Vietnam, became one of the fundamental academic texts used to argue for a change in US policy in Iraq and Afghanistan. In the mid-2000s, he was on the team that helped write the Army and Marine Corps Counterinsurgency Field Manual that outlines US counterinsurgency strategy. Knife Fights, Dr. Nagl's recently released memoir, details his experiences in the modern American military.

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND / CONTEXT From its formation in 1775, the United States Army has been the primary land based portion of the United States military. The Army's primary responsibility has been the fighting of land battles and military occupation. The Corps of Engineers has a major role in controlling rivers. It was founded in response to a need for professional soldiery in the American Revolutionary War in order to fight the invading British Army. The Army was quite small in peacetime down to the 1940s. The Air Force became practically independent in World War II, and completely so in 1947. The Army was under the control of the War Department until 1947, and the Defense Department since then. The U.S. Army fought the War of 1812 (1812–15), American Civil War (1861–65), Spanish-American War (1898), World War I (1917–18), World War II (1941–45), Korean War (1950–53) and Vietnam War (1965–71). After the Cold War ended in 1991, the Army has focused on insurgencies in the Middle East, such as the Gulf War, and the recent War in Iraq and the War in Afghanistan. When the American Revolutionary War began in April 1775, the colonial revolutionaries did not have an army. Previously, each colony had relied upon the militia, made up of part-time citizen-soldiers. The initial orders from Congress authorized ten companies of riflemen. The first full regiment of Regular Army infantry, the 3rd Infantry Regiment was not formed until June 1784. After the war the Continental Army was quickly disbanded as part of the American distrust of standing armies, and irregular state militias became the new nation's sole ground army, with the exception of a regiment to guard the Western Frontier and one battery of artillery guarding West Point's arsenal. The War of 1812, an invasion of Canada failed, and U.S. troops were unable to stop the British from burning the new capital of Washington, D.C.. However, the Regular Army, under Generals Winfield Scott and Jacob Brown, proved they were professional and capable of defeating a major invasion by the regular British army in the Niagara campaign of 1814. Between 1815 and 1860, the main role of the Army was control of Indians in the West, and manning coast artillery stations at major ports. The U.S. used regular units and many volunteer units to fight Mexico, 1846–48. At the outset of the American Civil War the regular U.S. army was small and generally assigned to defend the nation's frontiers from attacks by Native Americans. Following the Civil War, the U.S. Army fought a long battle with Native Americans, who resisted U.S. expansion into the center of the continent. A combined conscript and volunteer force, the National Army, was formed by the United States War Department in 1917 to fight in World War I. During World War II, the Army of the United States was formed as a successor to the National Army. The end of World War II set the stage for the East-West confrontation known as the Cold War. With the outbreak of the Korean War, concerns over the defense of Western Europe rose. During the Cold War, American troops and their allies fought Communist forces in Korea and Vietnam (see Domino Theory). The 1980s was mostly a decade of reorganization. The Army converted to an all-volunteer force with greater emphasis on training and technology. By 1989, the Cold War was coming to a close. The Army leadership reacted by starting to plan for a reduction in strength. After Desert Storm, the Army did not see major combat operations for the remainder of the 1990s. After the September 11 attacks, and as part of the Global War on Terror, U.S. and NATO combined arms (i.e. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, Special Operations) forces invaded Afghanistan in 2001, replacing theTaliban government. The Army took part in the combined U.S. and allied 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Cassandra in Oz: Counterinsurgency and Future War by Dr. Conrad Crane and GEN (Ret.) David Petraeus
 
02:39:51
Cassandra in Oz: Counterinsurgency and Future War by Dr. Conrad Crane and General (Ret.) David Petraeus In the years following the tragedy of September 11, 2001, the United States military grasped at the best way to engage in two wars, while remaining the world’s super power. Dr. Conrad Crane, only recently retired from active duty service in the U.S. Army, found himself a modern Cassandra, warning the military leadership about the preparation requirements for the U.S. Army and Marine Corps to conduct stability operations and counterinsurgency in Iraq. Dr. Crane’s continued push for proper planning in the eventual reconstruction of Iraq attracted the scrutiny of then-commanders General David H. Petraeus, U.S. Army (Retired) and General James Mattis, U.S. Marine Corps (Retired). On Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 2:00 PM, Dr. Crane and GEN Petreaus discussed the development of the formal response to the unpreparedness of American Forces: Field Manual 3-24/Marine Corps Warfighting Publication 3-33.5 Counterinsurgency. The presentations were complimented by questions and discussion from panelists Dr. Richard Lacquement, Colonel John Martin, U.S. Army (Retired), and Colonel Robert Balcavage, all of whom either served under GEN Petreaus and were implementers, or worked with Dr. Crane in development of the Counterinsurgency (COIN) manual. They discussed the implementation of the COIN doctrine, details about what went right and wrong in Iraq, and the lessons learned from over a decade of war.

Very Brave!! Israel Threaten Russia

Again, Israel Threatens Russian S-300 Response if Its Combat Jet Is Shot, TEL AVIV - Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman again threatened to respond to Russia's S-300 air defense missile system if Syria is used to shoot down Tel Aviv's fighter jets. He insisted that Tel Aviv did not want to go to war with Moscow. "We are not seeking confrontation with Russia, and vice versa, in recent years, open, clear and transparent dialogue has been made with Russia, both when our opinion is compatible and incompatible," Lieberman said in an interview with Kommersant newspaper quoted on Thursday 3/5/2018) night. "As far as I know, (Assad Syria) Assad is a war criminal, responsible for the deaths of more than half a million citizens, but we will not interfere in Syria's internal affairs What we will not tolerate is Iran's efforts to change Syria to be a leading post against Israel Every effort by Iran to build itself in Syria will be thwarted, "Lieberman said. "If does not intervene - it would be wise for him not to, because we do not plan to interfere in Syria's internal affairs, if his troops, the air defense system, fired shots at us-we would fire them," he continued. "There is a fine line between the () and the Russian military forces in Syria We always consider the interests of Russia, and hope that they will consider Israel's security interests," he added. "If the S-300 system is not directed to us-that's one thing, if this system fires on our plane, we will definitely respond," Lieberman said. A similar threat was made this Israeli Defense Minister on 24 April. Thanks for watching. For more videos, subscribe to the Thanks for subscribing, likes and comments. Thank you my friend.

Urgent! World Close to WW3
 
11:37
For the first time in a quarter-century, the prospect of war—real war, war between the major powers—will be on the agenda of Western leaders when they meet at the NATO Summit in Warsaw, Poland, on July 8 and 9. Dominating the agenda in Warsaw (aside, of course, from the “Brexit” vote in the UK) will be discussion of plans to reinforce NATO’s “eastern flank”—the arc of former Soviet partners stretching from the Baltic states to the Black Sea that are now allied with the West but fear military assault by Moscow. Until recently, the prospect of such an attack was given little credence in strategic circles, but now many in NATO believe a major war is possible and that robust defensive measures are required. In what is likely to be its most significant move, the Warsaw summit is expected to give formal approval to a plan to deploy four multinational battalions along the eastern flank—one each in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. Although not deemed sufficient to stop a determined Russian assault, the four battalions would act as a “tripwire,” thrusting soldiers from numerous NATO countries into the line of fire and so ensuring a full-scale, alliance-wide response. This, it is claimed, will deter Russia from undertaking such a move in the first place or ensure its defeat should it be foolhardy enough to start a war. The United States, of course, is deeply involved in these initiatives. Not only will it supply many of the troops for the four multinational battalions, but it is also taking many steps of its own to bolster NATO’s eastern flank. Spending on the Pentagon’s “European Reassurance Initiative” will quadruple, climbing from $789 million in 2016 to $3.4 billion in 2017. Much of this additional funding will go to the deployment, on a rotating basis, of an additional armored-brigade combat team in northern Europe. As a further indication of US and NATO determination to prepare for a possible war with Russia, the alliance recently conducted the largest war games in Eastern Europe since the end of the Cold War. Known as Anakonda 2016, the exercise involved some 31,000 troops (about half of them Americans) and thousands of combat vehicles from 24 nations in simulated battle maneuvers across the breadth of Poland. A parallel naval exercise, BALTOPS 16, simulated “high-end maritime warfighting” in the Baltic Sea, including in waters near Kaliningrad, a heavily defended Russian enclave wedged between Poland and Lithuania. All of this—the aggressive exercises, the NATO buildup, the added US troop deployments—reflects a new and dangerous strategic outlook in Washington. Whereas previously the strategic focus had been on terrorism and counterinsurgency, it has now shifted to conventional warfare among the major powers. “Today’s security environment is dramatically different than the one we’ve been engaged in for the last 25 years,” observed Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter on February 2, when unveiling the Pentagon’s $583 billion budget for fiscal year 2017. Until recently, he explained, American forces had largely been primed to defeat insurgent and irregular forces, such as the Taliban in Afghanistan. Now, however, the Pentagon was being readied for “a return to great-power competition,” including the possibility of all-out combat with “high-end enemies” like Russia and China. By preparing for war, Washington and NATO are setting in motion forces that could achieve precisely that outcome. The budgetary and force-deployment implications of this are enormous in their own right, but so is this embrace of “great-power competition” as a guiding star for US strategy. During the Cold War, it was widely assumed that the principal task of the US military was to prepare for all-out combat with the Soviet Union, and that such preparation must envision the likelihood of nuclear escalation. Since then, American forces have seen much horrible fighting in the Middle East and Afghanistan, but none of that has involved combat with another major power, and none entailed the risk of nuclear escalation—for which we should all be thankful. Now, however, Secretary Carter and his aides are seriously thinking about—and planning for—conflicts that would involve another major power and could escalate to the nuclear realm. https://www.thenation.com/article/the-united-states-and-nato-are-preparing-for-a-major-war-with-russia/

Statement by PM Netanyahu following President Trump's Announcement
 
01:58
"Israel fully supports President Trump’s bold decision today to reject the disastrous nuclear deal with the terrorist regime in Tehran. Israel has opposed the nuclear deal from the start because we said that rather than blocking Iran’s path to a bomb, the deal actually paved Iran’s path to an entire arsenal of nuclear bombs, and this within a few years’ time. The removal of sanctions under the deal has already produced disastrous results. The deal didn’t push war further away, it actually brought it closer. The deal didn’t reduce Iran’s aggression, it dramatically increased it, and we see this across the entire Middle East. Since the deal, we’ve seen Iran’s aggression grow every day- in Iraq, in Lebanon, in Yemen, in Gaza, and most of all, in Syria, where Iran is trying to establish military bases from which to attack Israel. Despite the deal, the terrorist regime in Tehran is developing a ballistic missiles capability, ballistic missiles to carry nuclear warheads far and wide, to many parts of the world. And as we exposed last week, since the deal, Iran intensified its efforts to hide its secret nuclear weapons program. So if you leave all of this unchanged, all this combined is a recipe for disaster, a disaster for our region, a disaster for the peace of the world. This is why Israel thinks that President Trump did an historic move and this is why Israel thanks President Trump for his courageous leadership, his commitment to confront the terrorist regime in Tehran and his commitment to ensure that Iran never gets nuclear weapons, not today, not in a decade, not ever."

GSF 2017: Risks and Consequences
 
01:17:51
9:30 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. Risks and Consequences of a Trade War Since the 2008-09 global financial crisis, G20 economies have repeatedly pledged to maintain market openness, while in fact applying nearly 8000 new trade-restrictive measures. The Trump administration argues that trade agreements treat U.S. firms and workers unfairly, and has embarked on a 1980s-style unilateralist trade policy, including launching Section 232 “national security” investigations of steel and aluminum imports and a Section 301 investigation of China’s Intellectual Property practices. GATT 1994 disciplines would entitle trading partners to suspend concessions in response to independent actions by the U.S. Will this be enough to spark a trade war, and escalation of protectionist measures? What are the consequences for globally-engaged U.S. firms, as well as for allies and partners which have their own complex economic relationships with China and other major economies?

With nuclear rhetoric running high and the Trump Administration’s Nuclear Posture Review nearing completion this fall, hands are already wringing as to the future of the fragile political consensus that has supported the comprehensive modernization of the U.S. nuclear complex. Several issues risk tearing that consensus down the middle, including: the reported consideration of “mini-nukes” which would vacate the “three no’s policy” of the last administration (no new warheads, no new missions, and no new military capabilities for existing weapons); legislation to limit presidential powers regarding nuclear command and control; discussions of additional deployments of tactical nuclear capabilities to Europe or South Korea; possible U.S. withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty; and prohibitions on the extension of New START absent full INF compliance. The prospects of continued escalation with North Korea and the concerns that Russia may not reach New START central limits on strategic nuclear delivery systems by early next year are only raising the stakes and stoking the fires.

Part1- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMzBE... Part3- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVoDX... Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell's chilling prophecy about the future. And while the year 1984 has come and gone, Orwell's narrative is timelier than ever. 1984 presents a startling and haunting vision of the world, so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions.

Religious Secret Societies, Murder & the Last Crusade with Geoffrey Gilson
 
28:19
How religious secret societies and secret clandestine organizations--from the Knights of Lazarus and Knights of Malta, to the CIA and Israeli intelligence--have conspired to murder make Holy War in the Middle East is discussed with author Geoffrey Gilson. From the Vatican funding of the war against communism, to the mysterious death of Hugh John Simmonds--we peel back the layers of power and secrecy to illuminate the spiritual motivations behind the ongoing political and military turmoil, in this Buzzsaw interview, hosted by Sean Stone.

ECUADOR IS UNDER ATTACK BY CIA MIND CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES AND DOESNT EVEN KNOW IT.
 
00:11
I AM BRYAN TEW, FORMER USA DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (ITT INDUSTRIES) AND USA FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY (FEMA-PB) CONTRACTOR FOR THE EVIL AMERICAN GOVERNMENT NEURO-WARFARE BY CIA IS UNDERWAY IN BOLIVIA, VENEZUELA, CUBA, AND ECUADOR RIGHT NOW. IT HAS ALREADY STARTED AGAINST THE NICARAGUANS (AND OTHER RUSSIAN ALLIES) AND SPECIFICALLY AGAINST THE SANDINISTA GOVERNMENT RIGHT NOW IN 2017 AS REVOLUTIONARIES GATHER IN THE MOUNTAINS OF NORTHERN NICARAGUA. I JUST CAME FROM NICARAGUA LAST YEAR. Nicaragua is already under neuro-warfare asymmetric irregular attack. A war it will lose, as the CIA uses electromagnetic low frequency waves targeting the population of Nicaragua against the Nicaraguan Government creating civil war if necessary to turn Nicaragua into an American puppet state. It's happening right now. CIA NEURO-WARFARE IS ALREADY STARTED AND UNDERWAY AGAINST THE RUSSIANS IN UKRAINE. CIA USED NEURO-WARFARE AGAINST THE UKRAINIAN CITIZENS TO TURN THEM AGAINST AND ISOLATE AND OVERTHROW THE PRO-RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE OF UKRAINE. THOUSANDS OF UKRAINIANS HAVE BEEN KILLED AND OVER A HUNDRED THOUSAND UKRANIANS HAVE BEEN DRIVEN FROM THEIR HOMES. http://www.foxnews.com/…/30-years-after-iran-contra-scandal… Remember 'Arab Spring' where Seven Arab Governments were overthrown by revolutionaries in the streets? That was CIA Neuro-Warfare that backfired on the CIA. Instead of becoming CIA puppet states those Arab Countries became more radical and fundamentalist. Those Arab countries are still in civil war now and hundreds of thousands have been killed. All because of the American CIA. Do you think America cares about you? Go back in history and see how many times the American Government has targeted your people and the other people of Latin America and see how much bloodshed they have already caused. If you will not stand up for yourselves then at least fight back now for your children and grandchildren while there is still time to expose this horror. YOU ARE NEXT ECUADOR! IN LESS THAN TEN YEARS CIVIL WAR WILL BEGIN TO TEAR APART YOUR COUNTRY AND YOU DO NOT POSSESS THE TECHNOLOGY TO STOP THE EVIL CIA. THE CIA WILL USE WEATHER WARFARE AGAINST YOU CREATING FLOODS, DROUGHT, ETC., WITH IONOSPHERIC HEATERS. YOU WILL BOW DOWN AND BECOME AN AMERICAN PUPPET STATE OR YOUR COUNTRY WILL DIE, JUST LIKE SYRIA AND LIBYA. The nanotechnology has already infected a great percentage of your population in Ecuador. The Nanotechnology is already in many of your bodies adhering to the neurotransmitters of your brains. It is too late to stop it. GO TO THE HOSPITAL TO SEE A TOXICOLOGIST AND ASK THE DOCTOR TO PERFORM A NANOPATCH TEST ON YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES. THAT DOCTOR WILL BE ABLE TO THEN SHOW YOU THE NANOTECHNOLOGY IN YOUR BODY. Tens of thousands of your citizens will die because your government failed to take action to protect your people and heed the warnings of activists who have risked our lives to help you. YET YOUR CORRUPT ECUADOREAN AUTHORITIES MANIPULATE AND ATTACK ME AND OTHER ACTIVISTS WITH ORGANIZED STALKERS, INFORMANTS & PROVOCATEURS TO TRY AND STOP US FROM EXPOSING THE CIA TO HELP EVEN YOUR OWN PEOPLE! WE HAVE RISKED OUR LIVES TO WARN YOU AND OTHER COUNTRIES AND SEVERAL OF OUR ACTIVISTS HAVE BEEN ASSASSINATED BY THE CIA. WE ARE TRYING TO HELP YOU BUT THE CORRUPT AMERICAN GOVERNMENT HAS MANIPULATED YOUR CORRUPT ECUADOREAN GOVERNMENT TO DO NOTHING UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE. HOW MUCH MONEY WERE THE ECUADOREAN AUTHORITIES PAID TO BETRAY THEIR OWN PEOPLE?

Syrian Arab Army Special Forces Fighting Terrorists in Damascus

GOOGLE owned YOUTUBE has been supporting Radical Terrorists in Syria by helping to terminate accounts that show the truth about the situation in Syria. Currently, private corporations, not contracted to any known nation, are operating assassination squads in Syria, organizing revolutions throughout the Middle East and are training and funding terrorist groups. The largest and most secretive, the most dangerous isn't Blackwater or L3Communication, not DynCorp. It is Google. You know, the search engine and the folks that run YouTube, with all those videos with puppys and kittens? Google, Beyond Borders, Beyond the Law Analysts tell us that Google is: "the operational intelligence and strategic planning agency for the New World Order." How can a small operation, barely $50 billion in revenue a year, broad access to the personal data of almost everyone on earth, directly aligned the world power centers, how could they do all of this? Better yet, how could they do it unseen, even by their own stockholders? Sometimes we forget. Millions of drivers carry phones that report vehicle locations, even speed, voluntarily, to help Google run their "navigation service." Google Earth has photographs of almost every building on earth, every intersection, every school and even sells military grade satellite service, in real time, to clients who have more than a minor curiosity about those around them. Google reads much of the world's email. Google, not only monitors internet searches, they provide the results, steering people to products and ideas they favor and censoring the rest. For a small fee, Google will smear anyone on earth, guiding internet searches to "fee paid" sites on obscure and secretive servers to spread wild conspiracies, bizarre accusations and defamation. Google runs YouTube, a site of vast power that has done more to mislead and censor than any other website on the internet, with the exception of Google's other sites, in particular, Google News. Now, even the CIA is distancing themselves from Google's global operations, now believed closely aligned with a group known to many as "Al Qaeda." Is anyone really surprised? Full Article here -

Iran nuclear deal: Trump pulls US out in break with Europe allies
 
02:55
- The nuclear deal was sealed during ex-President Obama’s era - Trump, however, pulled the US out of the deal, calling it "decaying and rotten" President Donald Trump has announced the United States’ withdrawal from the Obama-era nuclear agreement with Iran. Calling it "decaying and rotten", Trump said the deal was "an embarrassment" to him "as a citizen". Going against advice from European allies, he said he would re-impose economic sanctions that were waived when the deal was signed in 2015, BBC reports. READ ALSO: Police arrest AK47 rifles dealers selling arms to killers in Benue (photo) In response, Iran said it was preparing to restart uranium enrichment, key for making both nuclear energy and weapons. Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said: "The US has announced that it doesn't respect its commitments. "I have ordered the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran to be ready to start the enrichment of uranium at industrial levels." Rouhani said he would "wait a few weeks" to speak to allies and the other signatories to the nuclear deal. According to BBC, the US Treasury said economic sanctions would not be re-imposed on Iran immediately, but would be subject to 90-day and 180-day wind-down periods. In a statement on its website, it said sanctions would be re-imposed on the industries mentioned in the 2015 deal, including Iran's oil sector, aircraft exports, precious metals trade, and Iranian government attempts to buy US dollar banknotes. France, Germany and the UK, who are also signatories to the deal, have reportedly said they "regret" Trump’s decision. The European Union's top diplomat, Federica Mogherini, said the EU was "determined to preserve" the deal. However, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he "fully supports" Trump's "bold" withdrawal from a "disastrous" deal. President Trump had previously complained that the deal only limited Iran's nuclear activities for a fixed period; had failed to stop the development of ballistic missiles; and had handed Iran a $100bn (£74bn) windfall that it used "as a slush fund for weapons, terror, and oppression" across the Middle East. Reacting to the withdrawal, the former US Secretary of State John Kerry, who was involved in negotiating the deal, tweeted that pulling out of it risked "dragging the world back to the brink we faced a few years ago".

Trump’s re-election campaign finished 2017 with $22 million in cash. He reportedly spent $3.9 million in the first quarter. Unlike presidents before him, Trump has opted to begin active fundraising in the early part of his first term. How would you feel if Donald Trump bombed Boko Haram like Syria? - On

U.S.A. Balks on Iran Nuclear Deal, Israel Warns on Iranian Attacks
 
02:09
Subscribe to stay up to date with the latest videos ► https://www.sbry.co/YTNeW NewsWire Afternoon Recap – U.S.A. Balks on Iran Nuclear Deal, Israel Warns on Iranian Attacks Equity markets finished the day mixed, with the S&P 500 -0.03%, the Dow +0.01%, the Nasdaq +0.02%, and the Russell 2000 +0.50%. President Trump decided to walk away from the Iranian nuclear accord, and the markets shrugged. The result was expected and investors' attitude, for today, was business as usual. The leading sectors were energy, financials, and industrials. The price of crude rallied post the announcement, and the underlying stocks were bid up. Investors believe that the geopolitical setup will keep crude prices at current levels and possibly push them higher. Financials rallied on news that activist investor, ValueAct Capital, had taken a stake in Citibank (C) calling shares "undervalued". Industrials rallied on better earnings from construction equipment giant Jacobs Engineering (JEC) and as aerospace and defense buyers stepped up on Middle East tensions. The laggards were utilities, REITs, telecom, and health care. Utilities fell on poor AES earnings. Health care was down on news of cutbacks on subsidies that could result if President Trump's request to cancel $15 billion in unspent government funds gets approval from Congress. Small-cap stocks jumped as U.S. economic data continues to outshine other regions, pushing the dollar higher. Within the S&P, four out of the eleven sectors were higher. Energy +0.78% led to the upside on the Iranian Nuclear Accord news. Industrials +0.72% gained for the reasons mentioned above. Utilities -2.51% led to the downside on the AES numbers. Oil -1.47% dropped as investors hedged bets/booked profits ahead of Mr. Trump's Iran announcement. Gold +0.05% was mixed as dollar strength was offset by geopolitical tensions. Bitcoin -2.32% continued to sell-off on follow through from negative commentary by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates over the weekend. All eyes tomorrow will be on French industrial production data in addition to the Producer Price Index in the U.S. Download the NewsWire app for more expert market updates throughout the day: GOOGLE PLAY APP ► https://www.sbry.co/NOgkj APPLE ITUNES APP ► https://www.sbry.co/z8IIy Check out NewsWire’s Investors MarketCast ↓ GOOGLE PLAY MUSIC ► https://www.sbry.co/dzzKq APPLE ITUNES ► https://www.sbry.co/GoCV0 ———————————— Follow us on Twitter ► https://www.sbry.co/cIZHu Join our Facebook Community ► https://www.sbry.co/cadxP Check out our website ► https://www.sbry.co/CcszZ Check out Health and Wealth Bulletin ► https://www.sbry.co/NwRmD Check out Stansberry Investor Hour ► https://www.sbry.co/NeWIh Check out Extreme Value ► http://www.sbry.co/NwEvI ———————————— Trump Withdraws U.S. From ‘One-Sided’ Iran Nuclear Deal ► https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/08/world/middleeast/trump-iran-nuclear-deal.html Trump withdraws US from Iran nuclear deal ► https://www.cnn.com/politics/live-news/trump-iran-nuclear-deal/ Trump: U.S. 'Will Withdraw' From Iran Nuclear Deal ► https://www.npr.org/2018/05/08/609383603/trump-u-s-will-withdraw-from-iran-nuclear-deal Israel goes on high alert over Syria as Trump quits Iran deal ► https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/08/israel-goes-on-high-alert-over-syria-as-trump-quits-iran-deal.html Israel Golan Heights alert over Iran 'irregular activity' in Syria ► http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-44046049 Trump pulls US out of Iran nuke deal ► http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/386656-trump-pulls-us-out-of-iran-deal
