Dr. Strangelove / Ashton Carter

According to reports from the Russian Ministry of Defense, a flotilla of four ships in the Caspian Sea launched 26 land attack cruise missiles at ISIS targets in Syria. [1] The ships participating in the attack were three Buyan-M class corvettes and the flagship guided missile frigate Dagestan, which are equipped with UKSK vertical launch systems that can fire long-range cruise missiles. In this instance, the 3M-54 Kalibr (known as the “Sizzler” to NATO) was fired over 900 miles away from the Caspian Sea, over Iran and Iraq and struck targets in central and western Syria. It is notable that the Russian cruise missile strike had been agreed upon with Syria, Iran, and Iraq before taking place. The Russian Foreign Ministry has declared no civilian casualties resulted from this strike against ISIS and that all missiles hit within 5 meters of their target. [2] This has not stopped the spin-doctors in the Western media from alleging that some missiles had landed in Iran. Citing anonymous Pentagon officials and Iranian television reports, the Washington Post contradicted the Russian Defense Ministry. [3] The veracity of either claim is unclear as of now; one thing that is certain is that these attacks on ISIS show the might of the Russian fleet and its firepower. If the Pentagon is not interested in being shown up by Russia’s war against terror they must counter these strikes with attacks of their own against ISIS and other Syrian terrorists. French President Hollande has warned of a new conflict from which Europe would not be “sheltered,” while NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg is raving about a buildup of NATO troops in Turkey in response to a trifling air incident. Turkey routinely violates the airspace and territorial waters of most of its neighbors.

The flailing and incompetent US Secretary of Defense has proclaimed that the US is categorically opposed to the Russian action in Syria, and will not cooperate under any circumstances. Ashton Carter is the New Strangelove, and he should be fired immediately.

Brzezinski Recommends World War III to Save Al Qaeda

Zbigniew Brzezinski / Dr. Strangelove

As a result of the Russian cruise missile attacks on Syrian terrorist rebels trained and deployed by the CIA, a war psychosis is spreading among the Washington elites. One example of this is in the recent ravings of Obama’s original strategic guru, Zbigniew Brzezinski. Brzezinski’s Russophobia is well known; he is the author of the principal US intelligence community plan for the dismemberment and Balkanization of the Russian Federation with micro-states, ministates, warlords, and failed states.

In Brzezinski’s demented view, a few Russian cruise missiles coming down on Al Qaeda and other terrorists arrayed against Assad are more than enough reason to start thermonuclear World War III. Brzezinski, whose personal story goes back to the gaggle of reactionary and chauvinist colonels who ruled in Poland after the death of Marshall Pilsudsky in the 1930s, suggests a US ultimatum to Russia to stop interfering with the jihadis, and bandits that the CIA has been arming. This ultimatum should come festooned with threats, and be delivered in a spirit of “strategic boldness,” since Zbig thinks that US credibility in the Middle East is at stake. Back in the real world, US credibility in the Middle East has been virtually destroyed by a duplicitous policy which refused to engage in serious attacks on the ISIS rabble, even though they would have been totally vulnerable to a serious air campaign. This is why Russia is being welcomed in Iraq, as well as Syria. Putin’s strategic insight has been to see how much of a paper tiger ISIS actually represents once it comes under serious military attack. The Russian attacks on ISIS are highly effective, giving the Russian forces a relatively easy victory over a genocidal fanatic cult which has not proven very resilient when actually under attack. All of this has been made possible by the harebrained scheming of the Petraeus-Allen faction in the Pentagon, which has persisted in viewing ISIS is a valuable asset, which ought not to be destroyed, but rather turned against nations like Iran and Russia. Now that Allen is on his way out, it is urgent that the policy he has represented as ISIS Czar for the past year be reversed.

Brzezinski, who is Jimmy Carter’s former national security advisor, and who may be considered the founder of Al Qaeda during the Russian presence in Afghanistan, wants to lash out at Russia at all costs:

“In these rapidly unfolding circumstances the U.S. has only one real option if it is to protect its wider stakes in the region: to convey to Moscow the demand that it cease and desist from military actions that directly affect American assets…The Russian naval and air presences in Syria are vulnerable, isolated geographically from their homeland…They could be ‘disarmed’ if they persist in provoking the US…But, better still, Russia might be persuaded to act with the U.S. in seeking a wider accommodation to a regional problem that transcends the interests of a single state… China would doubtless prefer to stay on the sidelines. It might calculate that it will then be in a better position to pick up the pieces. But the regional chaos could easily spread northeastward, eventually engulfing central and northeastern Asia. Both Russia and then China could be adversely affected. But American interests and America’s friends — not to mention regional stability — would also suffer. It is time, therefore, for strategic boldness.”[i]

A highly reliable Middle East source has given the Tax Wall Street Party the following comments on the strategic situation:

“The incidents between Russia and Turkey are probably deliberate. Just before Russia began the current attacks, Moscow had congratulated the PKK Kurdish forces for their struggle against ISIS/Daesh. This amounted to a threat to Turkey to help the PKK. Some Turkish bombardments hit a group of Chechen fighters, and also struck some other fighters who were led by Turkish soldiers, some of whom were killed. After that, there were not one but several border incidents. It seems that the Russian planes were checking on the amount of aid which Turkey is giving to the jihadi fighters which are forced to fall back into Turkish territory. Concerning Palestine, since the signing of the Iran nuclear accord, Hamas (now called the Palestinian Section of the Moslem Brotherhood) has been marginalized on the international level. Its only way to get back into the game is to provoke a new intifada. They have been trying to do that for the last three months.”

Angloamerican Hands Behind Troubles at Volkswagen, Deutsche Bank?

The President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Junker has just declared that Europe cannot allow its relation to Russia to be determined by the United States, and that relations between the European Union and the Russian Federation have to be normalized, presumably meaning that the economic sanctions should be lifted. This gets very close to the statements by French President Hollande in early January, which were the immediate prelude to the Charlie Hebdo incident. This kind of thinking is also common in Germany, and there is good reason to believe that some of the problems besetting Berlin in recent months have represented a kind of Anglo-American punishment for signs of reluctance by Merkel to toe the State Department line. The timing of the Volkswagen exhaust scandal is extremely suspicious, and points to a targeting of German political forces who are interested in a New Rapallo, meaning a rapprochement with Moscow. Today the Deutsche Bank, one of the largest in Europe, announced a stunning $7 billion loss, which will probably mean that the bank will pay no dividend for the first time since the immediate postwar period, 60 years ago. Deutsche Bank has of course been guilty of the most imprudent speculations, but at the same time, it is increasingly likely that these losses have been the result of a ganging up process on the part of London and Wall Street zombie bankers and hedge fund hyenas, similar to the “idea dinner” which triggered the attack on the national debt of the “PIIGS” in 2010.

McCarthy Will Not Replace Boehner; Chaffetz Speakership Means Polygamy in US

Over the weekend, it was already clear that the planned elevation to Speaker of the House of the GOP hack politician Rep. McCarthy of California was in deep trouble, because many members of the fascistic Freedom Caucus had declared that they wanted a real storm trooper, and not some mere milquetoast reactionary. This meant that McCarthy could not receive the 218 votes necessary to occupy the third ranking post in the American government. McCarthy today retired from the competition, although he wants to hold on to his current post as House Majority Leader. Ethics charges were filed against McCarthy by Florida Democratic Congressman Grayson, and the threat of a grilling by the Ethics Committee may also have encouraged McCarthy to quit the race.

We can console ourselves that such a fanatic mediocrity will not be situated two heartbeats from the immense power of the presidency. But at the same time, the leading contender left in the field for the moment is Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz, a Mormon fanatic. Washington insiders are aware that the Saints will go into overdrive to make sure that Chaffetz gets the post, and then that he use it to reestablish polygamy in the United States. And, as experts point out, the prevalence of polygamy is inseparably connected with a widespread epidemic of statutory rape of girls barely in their teens. The idea of Chaffetz being situated two heartbeats away from the presidency is an absolute apocalyptic nightmare. Will Chaffetz bring a harem with him to the Speaker’s office?

As for the contest of the speakership, the most likely outcome for the moment seems to be a Weimar style ungovernability, with no candidate able to receive 218 Republican votes. This will either mean that Boehner stays on as Speaker, or else that chaos will escalate. The Republicans are still operating under the so-called “Hastert Rule,” which means that all decisions must be made, not by a majority of the entire House, but by a majority of the Republican caucus. The Speakership can be frozen by just over 10% of the entire body – which corresponds to the fascists of the Freedom Caucus. There is even talk of bringing in an outsider such as Mitt Romney (another Mormon!!) to occupy the post, since the Speaker need not be an elected member of Congress.
