Who controls the US Congress?
by Peter Eyre on 23 Nov 2009 0 Comment

Who controls Congress? Who controls the US President? Who controls the UN? No prizes for guessing! It was a very sad day for democracy and a disgraceful day for the credibility of Congress when voting results showed very biased support for Israel - 344 against the Goldstone Report and only 36 for.


Congress will now push President Obama to reject the Goldstone Report and no doubt this will then follow its normal format into the Security Council where the US will veto the entire document and add it to the hundreds of resolutions that Israel has ignored to date.


It is blatantly obvious that both Israel and the US are looking for another war in the Middle East, if one could even imagine WW III centred on the Middle East with today’s weaponry that can write off the entire region, including the possible instigators (Israel). I guess the US may even possibly use Israel as a pawn or sacrificial lamb to meet its own economic targets.  Recall it was Netanyahu who once said in the lead up to the Israeli election that next time we go into Gaza we will remain until Hamas has been removed. On top of this we have the darling of the US, Hilary Clinton, keeping full pressure on Iran (even though the IAEA team are currently there checking). The entire attitude of President Obama and the Government show clear signs of the same old aggressive foreign policy.


Again we have to look into the background as to why these “Iron Fist” aggressors appear to be pushing for another conflict. As far as the energy world is concerned, the US and its allies are acutely embarrassed that they have no control over the vast resources of Iran. They oppose the proposed Iranian pipeline that will bring oil/gas directly to Pakistan and possibly India, which is in direct competition with their own Proposed TAPI pipeline in Afghanistan (yes, the war is all about oil). Then we have the issue of large gas reserves in offshore Gaza that Israel so painfully want to acquire. Some years ago the head of the IDF stated that Hamas had to be removed in order to drill for these resources.


Why can’t the general public see through this façade of deceit? It they remove Hamas they can move forward with their illegal puppet Abbas and get these natural resources moving. Israel is already in the process of siphoning off Gaza’s gas… Wasn’t that the case in Kuwait when they siphoned off Iraqi reserves which directly resulted in an attack on Kuwait and lead to the current Iraq situation?


We continue to be blinded by our illustrious leaders about so called wars of democracy, how we must keep fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan or maybe Pakistan to make the streets of US and Britain safe from terrorism. What baloney! When you see Obama go out in the early hours to meet the returned dead and hear Brown in the British Parliament start his day saying how saddened he is to learn of the death of another five gallant soldiers etc … this must be the most orchestrated PR exercise that continues to be played out on our TV screens… do we ever consider that they all look upon the troops like Kissinger did when he said “Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”


I beg the people of America, Britain and Europe to read between the lines and see that all the troops in Afghanistan are dying along the route of the proposed pipeline i.e. Italian, US, UK and Canadian troops… just look at the figures and ask your political representatives why?

Back to the impoverished people of Palestine - how can they sustain this heroic stance against the might of Israel and the US? How can the United Nations and the world continue to watch this mass genocide? How can the United Nations continue to allow our respective military to use Uranium based weapons?


Come back to the G3.5 (US, UK, France and little old Merkel) continuing to apply pressure on Iran and the G20 headed by US (as usual) pushing aggressively for a ban on nuclear weapons. This is an absolute joke. Of course they want to ban the huge nuclear deterrents otherwise known as Ballistic Missiles, but do we really understand what is going on here?


Nuclear missiles are exactly what they say they are “Nuclear deterrents”… they have never been used and only served as a threat/deterrent. On the other hand we see a re-classification of so called “Conventional Weapons” being designed to carry US and others’ nuclear wastes (DU/EU). We see progressive new generations of weapons emerging that are even more deadly than the larger nuclear weapons. These “Mini Nukes” have the ability to not only do a very effective job on the so called enemy (those with huge natural resources) but the ability to “Depopulate in mass”. Could we ever imagine that currently many Islamic populations are so badly contaminated that one wonders if it is possible for them to have a natural DNA anymore?


We have done this in the Balkans, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Gaza and now Pakistan. That same contamination is now spreading alarmingly across Pakistan, India, Himalayas (birthplace of major Asian rivers), China, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and beyond. It is generating itself around the globe on the wind until it eventually is rained out onto the soils of our respective countries. If one can relate to Chernobyl and how its contamination spread around Europe, we must fully understand that these new “Mini Nukes” have the potential to make Chernobyl look insignificant by comparison.      


Let’s look at another thermometer for war when we look at the price of oil. Every time the oil price plummets the US goes onto a war footing to bring the oil price back up. It would be true to say that whenever the popularity of any leader starts to fail, they start a war to rally their people into patriotic frenzy…


We may also note the next generation “Robotic Wars” where a person in an armchair in the US can play with his/her computer and control a UAV over Iraq, Afghanistan or Pakistan (and likewise the Israelis). These UAV can carry Hellfire Missiles and Bunker Busters and all miles from the theatre of war. These UAV’s have accounted for the death of many innocent civilians and in some respects could be considered illegal indiscriminate weapons. In Pakistan already 700 civilians have been killed at the hands of a person in the US who controls the “Drones” attack.


US and Europe have new high tech weapons and systems on the horizon that one could never imagine. They stem from the so called “Mother of all bombs” to “Hyper speed missiles” to “Star war weaponry” “HARP” and an assortment of Electro/Magnetic/Acoustic physiological type weapons; the list is endless. One could assume that mind control would be an elementary task for these mad professors.


Finally we come back to the current time when we again see the power of the Israeli lobby almost ridicule the UN, US and Europe into violating whatever it chooses. We saw Livni rush over the pond to meet with Rice on her last day in office to sign a MOU. This MOU promised Israel the military security of the Eastern Mediterranean by both US naval forces and that of NATO. But what has NATO got to do with Israel?


One must look at the evil intentions behind American foreign policy. Remember Bush’s words “an enemy to one is an enemy to all”. In the past the United States has stood out alone as an aggressive military power and it was Bush who realised that if this term could be expanded he could pull in other countries into almost any US conflict. This was carefully manipulated in the Gulf when suddenly the term “US forces” changed into a new terminology - “We and our NATO Allies”.


The Afghan war suddenly changed from US/British led invasion to a total NATO war. The US once again manipulated the UN Security Council (which it controls) into approving this full-scale war. It assumed an incredible title - “International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), where the term US-led was dropped and became a NATO-led security and development mission in Afghanistan (established by the United Nations Security Council).


It is absurd that the term “Security Assistance” was used when in actual fact this is a full-scale war. The term “Development Mission” is equally as absurd when no development has taken place apart from a major highway between Herat and Kandahar - the route for the TAPI pipeline that will run alongside the highway. Are we starting to get the true picture?


We now have a situation whereby senior staff at NATO are visiting Israel and wishing to carry out joint exercises. This is a clear indication that Israel now has NATO supporting it as well as the US and one day Israel could become a member. Can one imagine how such manipulation works? Imagine Turkey is a member of NATO (currently on tenterhooks with Israel) and then we may see Israel join the fold… interesting?


This year saw further manipulation by the US in trying to include oil and gas installations and transport routes coming under the protective umbrella of NATO. This in reality means that any attack on a NATO country facility could constitute an attack on all.


Let me introduce you to some well orchestrated tactics by the US and British Governments some years ago when they tried to extend NATO around the globe. The plan failed miserably. The globe was split into three zones: US/Europe – Middle East – Asia/Far East. Each zone was given names: NATO – CENTO – SEATO. This basically was in connection with the “Cold War” and was intended to stop the growth of the USSR (Communism). History fortunately repeated itself when the countries in the Middle East and South East Asia realised that this was a type of US/UK controlling mechanism and backed out. We can see the American Bald Eagle’s Talons’ reaching out yet again out of economic greed for control of oil, not democracy!


Let’s look at activity that passed almost unnoticed years ago: The Central Treaty Organization (CENTO) also known as the Middle East Treaty Organization (METO) or the Baghdad Pact was initiated in 1955 by the United Kingdom. Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Turkey. Could we imagine such a pact today when the UK has since gone to war with Iraq, threatens Iran and bullies Pakistan? It all came to no avail and failed in 1979.


At the time, however, its coverage included: Southeast Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) started on 8 September 1954 to block further Communist gains in Southeast Asia. It failed on 30 June 1977. I believe those partner countries realized something more sinister lay behind this false façade set up by the US and UK governments and again closed the door.


Today we see the re-emergence of this same growth in NATO, which originally started with the US and Western European Nations uniting to stem Russian growth and the spread of Communism. Now we again see the “Bald Eagle Talon’s” extending to bring more countries into the fray that were once part of Russia, i.e. Georgia etc. This madness has no end and I am sure that NATO will spread way beyond the shores of the North Atlantic and embed itself well beyond Europe. We must remember that this US backed plan will bring many other countries into conflict based on the original theme “An attack on one is an attack on all.”


In addition to this cancerous growth we have the following countries (as per above) that, if they have the political will and ability, could deepen their relationship and possibly join NATO.


Some of these countries were part of the Russia alliance and it is again the talons of the “Bald Eagle” that is wishing to split up Russian to fulfill long term economic goals such as US/EU pipeline projects to secure their long-term energy requirements. Add to this the bigger picture of pulling in other countries such as Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Mauritania, Morocco and Tunisia.


Now we see two fronts developing at the same time. One the old Cold War issue between US/UK/EU and the Russian States, and the second front of trying to split up parts of the Arab League whilst strengthening Israel and bringing them into the NATO/European fold. This serves two purposes - it allows the US/UK/EU commercial consortiums to challenge Russia’s dominance in the supply of energy requirements to Europe and beyond, and at the same time allows the softer Arabic nations to join a US/UK/EU type of alliance, thus further alienating border countries such as Syria, Lebanon and Palestine. These three countries would then be encapsulated entirely by Turkey, Israel, Jordan and Egypt along with their rich natural resources, much of which are still unexplored. This same exercise nibbles away at the Russian States and the Arab League.


Those who seek peace in the world must stop this US-led controlling mechanism and demand an end to all wars, close down all military activity and bases on Islamic soil and bring the troops home. This can only be achieved by mass peaceful demonstrations and by the voting public voting out of office all candidates who promote such conflicts. We see Obama and Brown repeating the old line: “Keeping the streets of our cities safe from terrorism”… why don’t they see that if they pull troops and bases out of Islamic lands, terrorism will stop.


How can our leaders bully third world countries on global warming issue (a farce anyway) and at the same time spread nuclear waste around the globe to contaminate its residents? This alone is killing millions of people as well as attacking the very DNA of life itself.
