Why do we hear only of the “humanitarian crisis in Aleppo” and not of the humanitarian crisis everywhere else in Syria where the evil that rules in Washington has unleashed its ISIL mercenaries to slaughter the Syrian people? Why do we not hear about the humanitarian crisis in Yemen where the US and its Saudi Arabian vassal are slaughtering Yemeni women and children? Why don’t we hear about the humanitarian crisis in Libya where Washington destroyed a country leaving chaos in its place? Why don’t we hear about the humanitarian crisis in Iraq, ongoing now for 13 years, or the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan now 15 years old?

The answer is that the crisis in Aleppo is the crisis of Washington losing its ISIL mercenaries to the Syrian army and Russian air force. The jihadists sent by Obama and the killer bitch Hillary (“We came, we saw, he died”) to destroy Syria are being themselves destroyed. The Obama regime and the Western presstitutes are trying to save the jihadists by covering them in the blanket of “humanitarian crisis.”

Such hypocrisy is standard fare for Washington. If the Obama regime gave a hoot about “humanitarian crisis,” the Obama regime would not have orchestrated humanitarian crisis in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Yemen.

We are in the middle of a presidential campaign in the US and no one has asked why the US is determined to overthrow a democratically elected Syrian government that is supported by the Syrian people.

No one has asked why the White House Fool is empowered to remove the president of Syria by siccing US-supplied jihadists, which the presstitutes misrepresent as “moderate rebels,” on the Syrian people.

Washington, of course, has no acceptable answer to the question, and that is why the question is not asked.

The answer to the question is that Washington’s strategy for destabilizing Iran and then the Muslim provinces of the Russian Federation, former Soviet central Asia, and the Muslim province of China is to replace stable governments with the chaos of jihadism. Iraq, Libya, and Syria had stable secular societies in which the government’s strong hand was used to prevent sectarian strife between Muslim sects. By overthrowing these secular governments and the current effort to overthrow Assad, Washington released the chaos of terrorism.

There was no terrorism in the Middle East until Washington brought it there with invasions, bombings, and torture.

Jihadists such as those that Washington used to overthrow Gaddafi appeared in Syria when the British Parliament and the Russian government blocked Obama’s planned invasion of Syria. As Washington was prevented from directly attacking Syria, Washington used mercenaries. The prostitutes that pretend to be an American media obliged Washington with the propaganda that the jihadist terrorists are Syrian democrats rebelling against “the Assad dictatorship.” This transparant and blatant lie has been repeated so many times that it now is confused with truth.

Syria has no connection whatsoever to Washington’s original justification for introducing violence into the Middle East. The original justification was 9/11 which was used to invade Afghanistan on the fabrication that the Taliban was shielding Osama bin Laden, the “mastermind,” who at the time was dying of renal failure in a Pakistani hospital. Osama bin Laden was a CIA asset who was used against the Soviets in Afghanistan. He was not the perpetrator of 9/11. And most certainly, neither were the Taliban.

But the Western presstitutes covered up for the Bush regime’s lie, and the public was deceived with the phrase that we must “defeat them abroad before they attack us at home.”

Of course, Muslims were not going to attack us at home. If Muslims are a threat, why does the US government keep bringing so many of them here as refugees from Washington’s wars against Muslims?

9/11 was the neoconservatives “new Pearl Harbor” that they wrote they needed in order to launch their wars in the Middle East. George W. Bush’s first Secretary of the Treasury said that the topic of Bush’s first cabinet meeting was the invasion of Iraq. This was prior to 9/11. In other words, Washington’s wars in the Middle East were planned prior to 9/11.

The neoconservatives are zionists. By reducing the Middle East to chaos they achieve both of their goals. They remove organized opposition to Israeli expansion, and they create jihadism that can be used to destabilize countries such as Russia, Iran, and China that are in the way of their exercise of unilateral power, which, they believe, the Soviet collapse bequeathed to the “indispensable nation,” the USA.

Osama bin Laden, the alleged 9/11 mastermind, was dying, not directing a terror war against the US from a cave in Afghanistan. The Taliban were focused on establishing their rule in Afghanistan, not on attacking the West. After blowing up weddings, funerals, and childrens’ soccer games, Washington moved on to Iraq. There was no sign of Iraqi beligerance toward the US. UN weapons inspectors said that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, but Washington did not hear. The whores who comprise the American media helped the Bush regime create the image of a nuclear mushroom cloud going up over America if the US did not invade Iraq.

Iraq had no nuclear weapons and everyone knew it, but facts were irrelevant. There was an agenda at work, an undeclared agenda. To advance its agenda that the government did not dare reveal, the government used fear. “We have to kill them over there before they kill us over here.”

So Iraq, a stable, progressive country was reduced to ruins.

Libya was next. Gaddafi would not join Washington’s Africa Command. Moreover, China was developing the oil fields in eastern Libya. Washington was already troubled by Russia’s presence in the Mediterranean and did not want China there also. So Gaddafi had to go.


Next Assad was set up with faked evidence that he had used chemical weapons against the rebellion that Washington had started. No one believed the transparent Washington lie, not even the British Parliament. Unable to find support to cover an invasion, Killary the Psychopath sent the jihadists Washington used to destroy Libya to overthrow Assad.

The Russians, who until this point had been so naive and gullible as to trust Washington, finally figured out that the instability that Washington was brewing was directed at them. The Russian government decided that Syria was their red line and, at the request of the Syrian government, intervened against the Washington-supported jihadists.

Washington is outraged and is now threatening to commit yet another criminal violation of the Nuremberg Standard with blatant aggression against Syria. Such an ill-advised step would bring Washington into military conflict with Russia and by implication with China. Before Europeans enable Washington to initiate such a dangerous conflict, they had best consider the warning from Sergey Karaganov, a member of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Foreign Policy and Defense council: “Russia will never again fight on its own territory. If NATO initiates an encroachment against a nuclear power like ourselves, NATO will be punished.”

That the government of the United States is criminally insane should frighten every person on earth. Killary-Hillary is commited to conflict with Russia. Regardless, Obama, the presstitutes, and the Democratic and Republican establishments are doing everything in their power to put into the Oval Office the person who will maximize conflict with Russia.

The life of the planet is in the hands of the criminally insane. This is the real humanitarian crisis.

Note: Lt. General Michael Flynn, director of the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency stated in an interview that the creation of ISIS was “a willful Washington decision.” See, for example: Also:

The DIA warned that ISIS would result in a Salafist principality over parts of Iraq and Syria. The warning went unheeded as the neoconservative Obama regime saw ISIS as a strategic asset to be used against Syria.

    The majority of the American, Western, and even most of the European public, are like mindless dogs, conditioned in a Pavlovian manner by the presstitute Western media with truth suppression and inversion to accept and support Washington’s criminal policies and aggressions. Despite all the hopes being placed in them for years now, so-called “alternative media”, the Internet, non-MSM websites, etc. are not powerful enough to alter this fact – and many of them are themselves compromised or on shaky foundations. It is a near-Orwellian situation overall – and no change for the better is likely until and unless the presstitutes who make up this Orwellian “Ministry of Regime-Delivered Truth” start paying a PAINFUL PERSONAL PRICE for their warmongering against hapless nations, hoodwinking of the general public, willful omissions and distortions of the truth, and deliberate spreading of propaganda untruths in service of the U.S. regime’s goals.

    This is the same in the East, with the addiction of the absence of the little-powerful alternative media that sweetens our media landscape.

    Where I see the core element of diversity is, in the East (starting from East Europe) the elite hasn’t come to view the governed populace as an inimical hindrance.
    That has more chances to happen when the governing powers (official and public as well as, and most important, behind-the-scenes) feel a tie of kinship towards the populace; which won’t be the case if the former are, say, part of a 1% minority, servants of the thereof, and will be the case still less if a lot of things are the way they presently are in the West.

    Take Merkel: she has no sons. She is thoroughly foreign to the racial religion that makes leaders care for the people they lead. All in her is individualistic, and she must do wat serves her personal, topical interests best. Which can never overlap with the good of the populace.

    At least some patriotic Germans know it too:

    [Unable to ‘see beyond her own lifespan:’ AfD’s Petry slams Merkel for not having children]

    {The leader of the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany party, Frauke Petry, has launched a personal attack on German Chancellor Angela Merkel, alleging she is a worse politician because she does not have her own children.
    Petry blamed Merkel’s childlessness for the chancellor’s political failures. “I have four children and Merkel has none,” the AFD’s Petry told Germany’s Stern daily in an interview on Wednesday. “Children help people to see beyond their own lifespan and that is exactly what Merkel does not do,” she added, implying that the chancellor is pursuing policies as if there were no tomorrow.}

  5. Yes. Psycho Killer is the most accurate personification of Imperial Washington and it’s darling; Hillary Clinton. They are neither irrational nor incompetent but rather exclusively self serving while indifferent to human suffering. Fortunately they are no longer unopposed. Russia, with China at her back, is demonstrating that she will not surrender. And American subjects at home (formerly American citizens) have belatedly launched political opposition behind the unlikely leadership of one Donald Trump.

    Imperial Washington possesses a nuclear arsenal sufficient to destroy life on earth. But so also do the Russians. Washington’s great advantage is a machine that can create a trillion dollars instantly and repeatedly. This of course is the FED. But counterfeiting on a grand scale will inevitably destroy the American dollar. When that happens the empire will collapse, repatriating it’s legions.

    So play for time and pray that the psycho killers don’t blow up the earth in a fit of rage over their inability to become gods.

    The creation of Israel was an invasion.

    From Dresden to Fallujah, the US has never shown any squeamishness about incinerating people. Yet over and over again it plays the humanitarian card against others in a cynical attempt to gain the propaganda advantage. It’s all so very selective. If the US was really concerned about human suffering it wouldn’t have been engineering all these wars to begin with. It’s playing the role of clamoring about a fire without mentioning that it itself is the arsonist. Pretty neat trick.
