THIERRY MEYSSAN -- US secrets, lies and confusion in the North of Syria

US secrets, lies and confusion in the North of Syria

The announcements and denials of the Trump administration concerning military developments in the North of Syria reveal a heavy secret. Paradoxically, Turkey has come to the assistance of the United States to correct « the error » of their superior officers.

The denial expressed on 17 January by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson concerning the declarations of the commander-in-chief of CentCom, General Joseph Votel, on 23 December, and of the spokesman of the anti-Daesh Coalition, Colonel Thomas Veale, on 13 January, has sowed confusion.
The denial did not satisfy Turkey who, after having warned the US Chargé d’Affaires, Philip Kosnett, on the 10 January, and on 13 January, began preparing military operations in Afrine and Manbij, effectively launched them on 20 January.
Contrary to the declarations proffered by various participants, the US programme was not intended to create a sovereign, independent State in the North of Syria — that is the French plan — but a non-recognised State, like the Puntland State of Somalia or the Iraqi Kurdistan. The latter structure is absolutely independent, and despite the Iraqi Constitution, does not respond to orders from Iraq, of which it is nonetheless a part. Iraqi Kurdistan also has its own embassies abroad.

PT -- Manlio Dinucci -- A Arte da Guerra A Itália no Plano Nuclear do Pentágono



A Arte da Guerra

A Itália no Plano Nuclear do Pentágono

Manlio Dinucci


‘The Nuclear Posture Review 2018’,  o relatório do Pentágono sobre a estratégia nuclear dos EUA, está, actualmente, em revisão na Casa Branca.

Ao esperar que a versão final aprovada pelo Presidente Trump seja publicada, o rascunho do documento de 64 páginas foi filtrado (mais correctamente, a minuta foi filtrada pelo Pentágono). Descreve um mundo em que os Estados Unidos enfrentam "uma série de ameaças sem precedentes" provenientes de Estados e de assuntos não estatais.

Enquanto os EUA continuaram a reduzir as suas forças nucleares - afirma o Pentágono – a Rússia e a China baseiam as suas estratégias em forças nucleares dotadas de novas capacidades e manifestam “um comportamento cada vez mais agressivo mesmo no Espaço exterior e no ciber espaço”. A Coreia do Norte continua a equipar-se, ilegalmente, com armas nucleares. O Irão, apesar de ter aceitado o plano que o impede de desenvolver um programa nuclear militar, mantém “a capacidade tecnológica de construir uma arma nuclear dentro de um ano”.

Ao falsificar uma série de dados, o Pentágono procura demonstrar que as forças nucleares dos Estados Unidos estão em grande parte obsoletas e precisam de uma reestruturação radical. Não diz que os EUA, durante a administração Obama, em 2014, já iniciaram o maior programa de rearmamento nuclear desde o final da Guerra Fria, com um custo superior a mais de 1 trilião de dólares.

«O programa de modernização das forças nucleares dos EUA - documenta HansKristensen, da Federação dos Cientistas Americanos -  já permitiu realizar novas tecnologias revolucionárias, que triplicam a capacidade destrutiva dos mísseis balísticos dos EUA ». O objectivo da reestruturação planeada é, de facto, adquirir "capacidades nucleares flexíveis", desenvolvendo "armas nucleares de baixa potência", vantajosas em conflitos regionais ou para responder a um ataque de pirataria (real ou imaginária) aos sistemas informáticos.

A principal arma desse tipo é a bomba nuclear B61-12 que, confirma o relatório, “estará disponível em 2020”. A B61-12, que substituirá a actual B-61, introduzida pelos EUA na Itália, Alemanha, Bélgica, Holanda e Turquia, representa - nas palavras do Pentágono – “um sinal claro de dissuasão para qualquer potencial adversário, que os Estados Unidos possuam a capacidade de resposta desde bases avançadas até ao auge de uma acção bélica ».

Como comprova a Federação dos Cientistas Americanos, o que o Pentágono irá implantar nas “bases avançadas”, em Itália e na Europa, não é apenas uma versão modernizada da bomba nuclear B61, mas uma nova arma com uma ogiva nuclear com quatro opções de potência seleccionáveis, um sistema de direcção que permite lançá-la distante do objectivo e com capacidade de penetrar no solo para destruir os bunkers dos centros de comando.

A partir de 2021 - especifica o Pentágono - as B61-12 também estarão disponíveis para os caças dos aliados, incluindo os Tornados italianos, PA-200, do 6º Esquadrão de Ghedi. Mas, para dirigi-los para o alvo e explorar as suas capacidades anti-bunker, são necessários os aviões F-35A. "Os caças da nova geração F-35A – sublinha o relatório do Pentágono - manterão a força de dissuasão da NATO e a nossa capacidade de introduzir armas nucleares em posições avançadas, se for necessário para segurança".


O Pentágono anunciou o plano de introdução do F-35A, armado com B61-12, perto da Rússia. Obviamente, para a “segurança” da Europa. No relatório do Pentágono, que o Senador democrata, Edward Markey, define como “Roteiro para a Guerra Nuclear",    a Itália está, portanto, na primeira linha. Será que este assunto interessa a qualquer candidato às nossas eleições políticas?

NO WAR NO NATO


IT -- Manlio Dinucci -- L’arte della guerra: L’Italia nel piano nucleare del Pentagono




L’arte della guerra

L’Italia nel piano nucleare del Pentagono

Manlio Dinucci




Il Nuclear Posture Review 2018,   il rapporto del Pentagono sulla strategia nucleare degli Stati uniti, è attualmente in fase di revisione alla Casa Bianca.

In attesa che sia pubblicata la versione definitiva approvata dal presidente Trump, è filtrata (più propriamente è stata fatta filtrare dal Pentagono) la bozza del documento di 64 pagine. Esso descrive un mondo in cui gli Stati uniti hanno di fronte «una gamma senza precedenti di minacce», provenienti da stati e soggetti non-statali.

Mentre gli USA hanno continuato a ridurre le loro forze nucleari  – sostiene il Pentagono – Russia e Cina basano le loro strategie su forze nucleari dotate di nuove capacità e assumono «un comportamento sempre più aggressivo anche nello spazio esterno e nel cyberspazio». La Corea del Nord continua illecitamente a dotarsi di armi nucleari. L’Iran, nonostante abbia accettato il piano che gli impedisce di sviluppare un programma nucleare militare, mantiene «la capacità tecnologica di costruire un’arma nucleare nel giro di un anno».

Falsificando una serie di dati, il Pentagono cerca di dimostrare che le forze nucleari degli Stati uniti sono in gran parte obsolete e necessitano di una radicale ristrutturazione.  Non dice che gli USA hanno già avviato, nel 2014 con l’amministrazione Obama, il maggiore programma di riarmo nucleare dalla fine della guerra fredda dal costo di oltre 1000 miliardi di dollari.

«Il programma di modernizzazione delle forze nucleari USA – documenta Hans Kristensen della Federazione degli Scienziati Americani –  ha già permesso di realizzare nuove tecnologie rivoluzionarie che triplicano la capacità distruttiva dei missili balistici USA ». Scopo della progettata ristrutturazione è, in realtà, quello di acquisire «capacità nucleari flessibili», sviluppando «armi nucleari di bassa potenza» utilizzabili anche in conflitti regionali o per rispondere a un attacco (vero o presunto) di hacker ai sistemi informatici.

La principale arma di questo tipo è la bomba nucleare B61-12 che, conferma il rapporto, «sarà disponibile nel 2020». Le B61-12, che sostituiranno le attuali B-61 schierate dagli USA in Italia, Germania, Belgio, Olanda e Turchia, rappresentano – nelle parole del Pentagono – «un chiaro segnale di deterrenza a qualsiasi potenziale avversario, che gli Stati uniti posseggono la capacità di rispondere da basi avanzate alla escalation».

Come documenta la Federazione degli Scienziati Americani, quella che il Pentagono schiererà nelle «basi avanzate» in Italia ed Europa non è solo una versione ammodernata della B61, ma una nuova arma con una testata nucleare a quattro opzioni di potenza selezionabili, un sistema di guida che permette di sganciarla a distanza dall’obiettivo, la capacità  di penetrare nel terreno per distruggere i bunker dei centri di comando.

Dal 2021 – specifica il Pentagono – le B61-12  saranno disponibili anche per i caccia degli alleati, tra cui i Tornado italiani PA-200 del 6° Stormo di Ghedi. Ma, per guidarle sull’obiettivo e sfruttarne le capacità anti-bunker, occorrono i caccia F-35A. «I caccia di nuova generazione F-35A – sottolinea il rapporto del Pentagono – manterranno la forza di deterrenza della NATO e la nostra capacità di schierare armi nucleari in posizioni avanzate, se necessario per la sicurezza».

Il Pentagono annuncia quindi il piano di schierare F-35A, armati di B61-12, a ridosso della Russia. Ovviamente per la «sicurezza» dell’Europa. Nel rapporto del Pentagono, che il senatore democratico Edward Markey definisce «roadmap perla guerra nucleare»,   c’è dunque in prima fila l’Italia. Interessa questo a qualche candidato alle nostre elezioni politiche?

Russia’s top diplomat SLAMS anti-Semitism, calling it ‘the most horrible crime against humanity’


Russia’s top diplomat SLAMS anti-Semitism, calling it ‘the most horrible crime against humanity’

Sergey Lavrov’s speech at the opening ceremony of the exhibition “Holocaust: Annihilation, Liberation and Rescue” does not waste words

 



Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov took part in the opening ceremony of a new exhibition about the Holocaust, the great mass-execution drive of over six million Jews and others deemed by Nazi Germany to be “unfit” for life. The speech was extremely succinct, so much so that we are printing the full translation below along with the video.
We want to provide a further service though, so in the text of the speech you will see hyperlinked places that offer further explanation of some of the vague charges Mr. Lavrov has given.  It is a classic feature of Russian diplomacy to lay the charge out very clearly, while not naming the perpetrator of the charge.  This is statesmanship, and properly applied, it should interest the listener or the reader to conduct their own research to find out what the whole story is.
The Duran wants to again call to attention the very important fact that Russia brooks no hostility towards the Jewish people, their religion or their way of life.
Recently an opinion piece by Russia Insider editor Charles Bausman attempts to explain Western media hostility towards Russia as being a “Jewish-based” phenomenon.
This view is of course, highly charged, controversial, and in the rebuttal pieces by The Duran’s Dmitri Babich, and Alexander Mercouris, this point of view is shown to be far less true that Mr. Bausman holds.  Given the text of the speech here, it is apparent that the Russian Federation stands committed to upholding the dignity of humanity everywhere, and of every ethnicity and creed.
At The Duran, we consider free speech and expression to be sacred. But more than that, we consider honest and objective assessment to be the journalistic Holy Grail, and we strive to achieve this. Nevertheless, we believe that we seek to find and report the truth, and most of all, to do it in such a way that allows our readers to think about topics for themselves.
What we DO have on our side is the simple fact that the truth always reveals itself to one who seeks it, and our efforts to analyze and describe the amazingly complex field of geopolitics hopefully are tools to reveal the truth, in hopes that we might act in knowledge of the truth.
Here is the speech in full, followed by the text:
It is a great honor for me to address the UN headquarters at the opening of the historical and documentary exhibition “The Holocaust: Destruction, Liberation, Salvation”. This exhibition is held on the eve of the International Day of Remembrance for the Victims of the Holocaust, celebrated annually on January 27.
First of all I would like to thank the Scientific Educational Center “Holocaust”, its co-chairman Ilya Altman, the Russian Jewish Congress for organizing this exposition, which contains unique archival documentary evidence of the terrible tragedy of the Holocaust, photographs of prisoners of Nazi death camps and their liberators, (which included) the soldiers of the Red Army.

Russian soldiers with men liberated from the Nazis’ Auschwitz concentration camp. 1,082,000 people, mostly Jewish, were murdered at this camp alone.

The Holocaust is one of the most horrible crimes against humanity, the manifestation of merciless cruelty and contempt for the value of life. The mass extermination by the Nazis, of Jews, as well as many victims from other ethnic groups was the result of the implementation of the misanthropic policy of racial superiority.
Our sacred duty is not only to honor the memory of the millions of innocent victims, but also to do our utmost to avoid the recurrence of such tragedies in the future.
One cannot but be disturbed by the fact that recently we have seen a creeping resurgence of Nazism. In a number of countries, including those classifying themselves as “paragons of democracy,” there is a systemic course for revision of the historical outcome of the Second World War, including the glorification of the activities of the Hitler activities (Nazism) of local collaborationists.
It is especially immoral that a number of the EU member countries are waging a war on the monuments, where they destroy and defile monuments to Soviet soldiers who helped save the world from the horrors of the “brown plague” and who gave their lives in their contribution to ensuring long years of peace and stability on the European continent.

Inmates of the Nazi concentration camp at Ebensee. This camp was one of the deadliest Nazi camps. Approximately 20,000 inmates were literally worked to death here.

Such actions are sacrilegious from the general human point of view. They challenge the postwar architecture of security, which is based on the UN Charter, the decisions of the Nuremberg Tribunal, and other unshakable international legal documents.
All of us need to counteract these extremely dangerous trends.
In Russia, special attention is paid to this problem. Every year, we submit to the UN General Assembly a draft special resolution on combating the heroism of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to the escalation of contemporary forms of racism and intolerance.
The number of states that have co-sponsored it has been steadily growing from year to year.
Once again we adopted such a resolution a month ago, on December 19, 2017, at the plenary session of the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly. The document was approved by an overwhelming majority of member nations, but a number of countries did not support it, trying to justify their position by referring to the need to respect freedom of speech. [the vote was 133 in favor, 49 abstentions, and 2 against – Ukraine and the USA]
I believe that today’s exhibition is designed to send another unambiguous signal that such attempts to re-interpret Nazizm are absolutely unacceptable.

Soviet Soldiers with women liberated from Auschwitz

In the coming months, this exhibition will be shown in a number of other countries. I am convinced that this will help solidify historical truth, will once again remind of the valorous feats of those who defeated Nazism, saved Jews and other peoples from complete destruction.
In conclusion, I would like to wish you good health and all the wellbeing to our dear veterans, including those who saved the Jews, liberating Auschwitz, and those who helped to save us all defeated Nazism in Europe.
Of course, I’m very glad to see my good friend Arthur Schneier, who is one of the pillars of New York political life and conducts a very important work to prevent the hero-making of those people who committed heinous crimes.
Thank you all and best wishes to you!
