War in Syria a Violent Financial Transaction

America is being run by mass murders armed with some of the world’s most lethal weapons.  Like mass murderers, each kill leaves them feeling more invincible with unrestrained urges to kill again, only on a bigger, more horrific scale.

America’s mass murderers had a dream of using every weapon in America’s arsenal for the overwhelming destruction of Iraq.  Iraq was to be a warning to nations in the Middle East to succumb to American imperialism or be crushed.  In order to control the masses there must be absolute control of the media.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Joseph Goebbels


Speaking of big lies, I have never watched any beheading video but when I saw that Aljazeera was forced to withdraw an article claiming the video is a staged production and a fake, I wondered why?  Why are news organizations being banned from questioning what the government presents as evidence to justify war?  From  


ALJAZEERA QUESTIONS LEGITIMACY OF FOLEY AND SOTLOFF BEHEADING VIDEOS  Cites questionable aspects of videos now used as pretext to invade Syria

The Arabic version of Aljazeera, the Doha-based broadcaster funded by the House of Thani in Qatar, has joined the growing chorus questioning the beheading of journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff.

The news channel says the videos are “unconvincing” and Foley and Sotloff are actors right out of “Hollywood” casting. It believes the videos were produced as a pretext ahead of a U.S. invasion of Syria.

“Perhaps the first thing that draws the attention of the viewer” in the first beheading video is that “Foley was playing the role of champion not the victim only, for he recites a lengthy statement in peerless theatrical performance, and it seems from tracking the movement of his eyes that he was reading a text from an autocue,” Aljazeera reports.

The news network poses questions similar to those asked by and other alternative news sites soon after the video appeared. For instance, a clue the video was staged is the lack of blood when Foley and Sotloff supposedly have their throats cut by a masked jihadist. The “knife being moved on the neck of the victim six times triggered no blood,” Aljazeera notes.

I’ve never watched a beheading before so I had kind of braced myself for something horrible.  But, what I saw was the beheader taking what looked like the dull side of the knife and sawing about 6 times across the victim’s neck.  There was no blood, no anything and then the camera went black.  When the camera came back, there is a headless body, laying on the sand with a severed head propped on the chest, with blood all over the place.

It looks totally fake, but the point is that the video was cited as the basis for these lunatics in the US State Department to justify bombing Syria.  Bombing Syria with no approval from the UN or US government and is an act of war.  The American people were not asked, nor consulted whether they want to start World War III.

"Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on
a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of
it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people
don't want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in

That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the
country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to
drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist
dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no
voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.

That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked,
and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the
country to danger. It works the same in any country."... Hermann Goering

I believe Glen Ford, Executive Editor at Black Agenda Report may have the answer as to why America’s mass murderers are in such a hurry to blast Syria into the Stone Age.  


The Big Switch: Obama Preparing to Bomb His Way to Regime Change in Syria by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

“The strategic ‘rebel’ breakthrough is being prepared in the vulnerable southern underbelly of the country.”

The U.S. offensive against ISIS in Syria will very soon revert to its original mission: regime change in Damascus, the strategic objective that unites America’s Euro-Arab-Turkish-Israeli coalition. Although U.S. military planners insist it will take eight months to a year to fully assemble and train a “moderate” Syrian rebel spearhead to confront government forces, political and military realities dictate that the Americans must move much more quickly to upset the balance of forces on the ground. Otherwise, the whole structure of western dominance in the region could unravel – catastrophically.

The unelected Bush Administration kicked off the PNAC plan to overthrow Iraq and Syria as part of the “New World Order.”  They refuse to back off removal of Assad no matter what the price is to America.
New Warmongers Same as Old Warmongers

The contradiction at the heart of the western crisis in Syria, is the refusal of tens of thousands of jihadists to act as mere foot soldiers for the West and Arab monarchs. The jihadist genie is out of the bottle, and its conjurers and paymasters cannot put it back…

The Israeli downing of a Syrian fighter on the Syrian side of the “border,” this week, was no doubt designed to prevent Assad’s air force from disrupting jihadist troop concentrations in the corridor, poised to make a thrust towards Damascus from the south. 

The Israelis provided the rebels with every accommodation, including medical care for their wounded, when the Islamists routed Syrian soldiers and captured or drove off United Nations peacekeepers, earlier this month The rebels now claim to have seized “80 percent of Quneitra province,” which runs to the outskirts of Damascus.

You don’t want any witnesses to the US/Israeli massacres in Syria, so drive off all U.N. peacekeepers and objective reporters, don’t want to get beheaded now do you?  Sounds like America’s mass murderers are headed for Damascus.

With the UN peacekeepers no longer watching, and Israel guarding the skies over the three-mile-wide, 40 mile-long corridor, the al-Qaida affiliated and Qatar-funded al-Nusra Front, the Saudi Arabia-financed Islamic Front and the U.S.-backed Syrian Revolutionaries Front are to storm the capital, confident that the U.S. will find a pretext to act as close air support, as it did for the jihadists in Libya.

The mass murdering lunatics that seized control of the United States Government on December 12, 2000 have finally brought the world to its knees, the new world order has been unleashed.  The illegal “shock and awe” style bombing of Syria is stomach turning.  Bloomberg News reports that “A Month of Bombs Dropped inTwo Days of Syria Strikes”:  


The U.S. dropped almost as many bombs and missiles on Islamic State positions in Syria over the past two days as were used in the first month of attacks on the extremist group in Iraq.

There is no legal justification for the neocon cabal to bomb the sovereign State of Syria, none.  This is the same “shock and awe” mass murder used in Iraq.  In two days, they dropped “a month’s worth of bombs”.  What the hell is that?  How many bombs are in a month’s supply? 

The first night of attacks hit compounds, storage facilities and even a finance center of Islamic State, which has seized a swath of Iraq and Syria. The more recent airstrikes included a staging area in Syria on the border with Iraq used by militants, Rear Admiral John Kirby, the Pentagon’s spokesman, told CNN in an interview today.

You know something?  That part about bombing a “finance center”, I don’t understand it.  Did they bomb a bank?  Why would America illegally kill innocent Syrian civilians with a month’s worth of bombs?   What could possibly justify that?   Maybe the answer is in this Bloomberg article:  “After 9 Years and $67 Billion, F-22Raptor Sees Combat in Syria”  By JustinBachman September 23, 2014  


The Pentagon’s newest fighter jet saw combat for the first time on Monday during the U.S.-led attacks against Islamic militants inside Syria. The F-22 Raptor made its fighting debut nearly nine years after the Air Force took delivery of the jet.

The $67 billion F-22 program is one of the most expensive in Pentagon history, and the military is blunt about its perceived advantage: “The F-22 cannot be matched by any known or projected fighter aircraft,” according to the Air Force.

Pure Horseshit!


The F-22′s cost was one reason former Defense Secretary Robert Gates pressed to end production in late 2011, at a time when the Air Force had already received 187 of the planes from Lockheed Martin (LMT). The first F-22s entered service in December 2005.

How much you want to bet that there’s more F-22s on order, after all we’ll need them for the war these mass murderers want to launch on Iran.  From Mintpressnews:


Israel ‘Concerned’ US War On ISIS Will Temper Hostility Toward Iran
The Israeli strategy affairs minister says that "Iran must remain the top priority".  By Jason Ditz for | September 12, 2014

The Israeli cabinet position of “strategy affairs minister” is primarily meant to focus around planning for a war with Iran. It’s a full time job, and it mostly involves pushing the US to threaten Iran more often.

The current minister, Yuval Steinitz, is at the forefront of Israeli officials expressing “concern” tonight at the new US war on ISIS, which they see as potentially getting in the way of long-term US hostility toward Iran.

Steinitz shrugged off ISIS as a “five-year problem,” while declaring Iran a “50-year problem with far greater impact,” and that more moves to stop Iran’s nuclear program ought to come before the new war.

Jeepers, the mass murderers are already planning for the next war.  You know if it cost $67 billion for the failed F22 program and its costing $10 million a day to bomb Syria, whomever has stock in those war related companies with the advantage of insider information on illegal bombing just made a killing. 

The White House has sought to assure Israel that the new war won’t make them any less unreasonable in their negotiations with Iran, which Israel didn’t want to take place to begin with, but they can take some solace in the fact that the US seems unwilling to make a final deal with Iran.

Yes, the mass murderers can “take some solace in the fact that the US seems unwilling to make a final deal with Iran”, isn’t that nice?

Other Israeli officials expressed further concern that the US and Iran are on the same side in the ISIS war, with Iran already deploying troops to help Iraq before the US arrived. The “concern” seems to center on the belief that Iran would benefit from ISIS’ defeat, the same reason Israel has long looked the other way on ISIS and al-Qaeda in Syria.

So, whether or not your country will be bombed and you will be killed depends upon the Federal Reserve Bank and Wall Street profits.  These wars are nothing more than violent banking transactions, and no one is safe from these predatory banks.  Rupert Murdoch’s rag “The Wall Street Journal”has this absolutely revolting article: 


U.S. to Shield Military From High-Interest Debt
Administration Will Propose Tougher Protections for Personal Loans to the Military

WASHINGTON—The Obama administration plans to propose tougher financial protections for personal loans made to the military amid concerns lenders are circumventing rules designed to protect service members from taking on high-interest debt.

I have a question.  If lenders are “circumventing rules designed to protect service members” from predatory lending why not just prosecute them?  Shouldn’t our service members’ safety from predatory lenders have precedence over obscene bank profits?

The Defense Department plan, to be announced Friday, is expected to extend a 36% cap on interest rates on loans to troops to include a broader swath of products—such as credit cards—that previously had been exempt.

Whaaaat?? There was a 36% interest cap on rates to troops and credit card companies are exempt from 36% interest????

The proposal aims to bolster the Military Lending Act, a bipartisan law passed by Congress in 2006 to curtail the growth of high-interest lenders setting up just outside military bases…

One San Diego-area sailor who was in financial trouble took out a $1,500 loan with no interest for the first 90 days, which complies with the letter of the law, but then the interest rate jumped to 183%, said Barry White, director of the San Diego Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, which provides assistance to service members in financial trouble.

Banking industry advocates argue current regulations are sufficient.

The Defense Department rules implementing the current law "struck the proper balance between protecting service members and their families while still ensuring they had access" to loans, wrote the American Bankers Association, Financial Services Roundtable and four other trade groups in a comment letter to the Defense Department last year.

Well, if those high-priced whores over at the ABA think the law “struck the proper balance” that’s good enough for me.  Trillions in profits off the backs of military families is “patriotic capitalism.”

"Anybody can come up with horror stories when it comes to any product," said Bill Himpler, executive vice president of the American Financial Services Association, a trade group representing lenders. "If the Defense Department wants to put forward evidence that the regulations aren't working, that's the first step."…

Yes, it’s not like they sold autos with faulty ignition switches that killed people.  Christ, can you believe this?  The executive vice president of the American Financial Services Association says "If the Defense Department wants to put forward evidence that the regulations aren't working, that's the first step." 

Congress has to prove to the banks that current laws aren’t sufficient to protect service members from their predatory lending before new laws can be passed. 

Consumer advocates have been urging military officials to enact stricter regulations to prevent military members from being targeted. The issue also has been a priority for the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and several lawmakers on Capitol Hill. 

That’s the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that was the brainchild of Elizabeth Warren.  It was harder than hell to get that through congress, and when Warren was going to be nominated as the head of the bureau the banks lobbied and the Warren nomination was dropped by Obama.  You know what’s interesting about the CFPB?  They are not answerable to congress, they are answerable to the Federal Reserve Bank.  God, this country is so screwed.

If the rules are finalized as proposed, it likely would force many lenders to lower their rates and potentially cut off credit to some borrowers.

He explained that service members with bad credit will have higher interest rates than those with good credit. Their loans—ranging from $500 to $10,000—can have rates above 36% because the loans aren't subject to lending act provisions, he noted.

Hey military, don’t worry Obama’s got your back and when Obama has your back its money in the bank, just ask GM and Ally.  


DETROIT -- The U.S. Treasury last year permitted top executives at General Motors (GM) and Ally Financial (ALLY) to collect "excessive pay" while those companies were part of a taxpayer-funded government loan program, a special inspector general reported Wednesday.

Hey, quick question?  What’s the rate of interest on those loans?  Is it 36%?

The Treasury responded that the report contained "many inaccuracies and omissions," saying the department balanced limits on executive compensation "with allowing companies to repay taxpayer assistance."

According to Christy Romero, special inspector general for the U.S. Troubled Asset Relief Program, "Treasury significantly loosened executive pay limits resulting in excessive pay for [the] top 25 executives" at GM and Ally while "taxpayers were suffering billions of dollars of losses" on loan repayments and share sales, said the report, prepared for Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew.

Well, that’s OK if “taxpayers were suffering billions of dollars of losses” as Obama OK’d excessive pay for executives, because Obama has replaced those funds with by cuts to Veteran’s benefits.

In April, Treasury said it lost $11.2 billion on the $49.5-billion GM bailout.

America is being run by mass murders who use war as nothing more than a violent financial transaction.
