Paging Immigration Canada ... Single men AND single women should not be accepted as refugees ...

unless you want to shoulder the blame for Canadians getting killed violently in the near future by single jihadi women.

Go to the link below and read the entire article and  see for yourselves how plenty of young Syrian women have also become as sociopathic as the headchopping  jihadis they married one after another.

The author has interviewed just three women who managed to "escape" from Raqqa, the capital of the jihadi army.  There must be hundreds, if not thousands of this kind of jihadi wives in the mix of refugees now making their way to the West as legitimate refugees.

Immigration departments accepting refugees will have to be very, very careful that even young couples, those without kids,  are vetted again and again and again and again.  Women like the ones whose lives have been changed to jihadi norms and practices will probably make their way to the West with willing males (who might be ISIS-affliated or might not be).  If these women could stomach the jihadi lifestyle in Syria and even enjoy it most of the time,   chances are they will be harboring a kind of Stockholm-like syndrome deep within their psyches and within a few short years over here, could even wish for those days with nostalgia and longing.  Damaged goods can do plenty of damage.

ISIS Women and Enforcers in Syria Recount Collaboration, Anguish and Escape

SOUTHERN TURKEY — Dua had only been working for two months with the Khansaa Brigade, the all-female morality police of the Islamic State, when her friends were brought to the station to be whipped.
From Our Advertisers

The police had hauled in two women she had known since childhood, a mother and her teenage daughter, both distraught. Their abayas, flowing black robes, had been deemed too form-fitting.

When the mother saw Dua, she rushed over and begged her to intercede. The room felt stuffy as Dua weighed what to do.

“Their abayas really were very tight. I told her it was their own fault; they had come out wearing the wrong thing,” she said. “They were unhappy with that.”

Dua sat back down and watched as the other officers took the women into a back room to be whipped. When they removed their face-concealing niqabs, her friends were also found to be wearing makeup. It was 20 lashes for the abaya offense, five for the makeup, and another five for not being meek enough when detained........

American Drone Operators' description of children they drone: “fun-size terrorists”

Also, they liken killing children to “cutting the grass before it grows too long,”

Hmmm... where have I heard similar expressions?  Where in the Middle East is that kind of thinking ("mowing lawns every couple of years") a government approved policy?  Hmmm ... it will come to me perhaps a little later.  Being a dodo, I am slow on the uptake. 

Murtaza Hussain writing at TheIntercept:
Former Drone Operators Say They Were “Horrified” By Cruelty of Assassination Program
U.S. DRONE OPERATORS are inflicting heavy civilian casualties and have developed an institutional culture callous to the death of children and other innocents, four former operators said at a press briefing today in New York.

The killings, part of the Obama administration’s targeted assassination program, are aiding terrorist recruitment and thus undermining the program’s goal of eliminating such fighters, the veterans added. Drone operators refer to children as “fun-size terrorists” and liken killing them to “cutting the grass before it grows too long,” said one of the operators, Michael Haas, a former senior airman in the Air Force. Haas also described widespread drug and alcohol abuse, further stating that some operators had flown missions while impaired.

In addition to Haas, the operators are former Air Force Staff Sgt. Brandon Bryant along with former senior airmen Cian Westmoreland and Stephen Lewis. The men have conducted kill missions in many of the major theaters of the post-9/11 war on terror, including Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan............

Some of the drone operators who seem to have found their long lost conscience have come forward to relate their experiences. Below is vid showing a small part of the explosive exposure.  Go to link below to see the entire show:

Among the issues tackled in the new documentary film "Drone" is the connection between video games and military recruitment. We air a clip from the film and speak to its director, Tonje Hessen Schei, as well as drone war whistleblower Brandon Bryant. "I think gamers should be offended that the military and the government are using [video games] to manipulate and recruit," Bryant says. "We’re more interconnected now than at any time in human history — and that’s being exploited to help people kill one another."......

Any little respect I had for the Financial Times is now dead because ...

in the article below three of their journalist taking credit for the article have this quote:
Jihadis’ oil operation forces even their enemies to trade with them
You gotta wonder if at least one, if not all three writing, are being paid under the table by the powers-that-be in Israel and Turkey (two main buyers of stolen goods from jihadis) to put out this disinformation so the "buyers" of stolen goods are made to look like victims instead of ISIS's godfathers.

Jihadis’ oil operation forces even their enemies to trade with them

On the outskirts of al-Omar oilfield in eastern Syria, with warplanes flying overhead, a line of trucks stretches for 6km. Some drivers wait for a month to fill up with crude.

Falafel stalls and tea shops have sprung up to cater to the drivers, such is the demand for oil. Traders sometimes leave their trucks unguarded for weeks, waiting for their turn....

Below is vid from RT on the oil trucks running for miles towards their eagerly awaiting customers in the two neighbouring countries of Turkey and Israel.

If you got all your news from only the Western MSM, you wouldn't even know that 44 human beings in Lebanon were blown to bits on November 12 ...

and that 200+ were wounded. 

Ali Hashem writing at AlMonitor:
Has the Islamic State returned to Lebanon?   

The similarity of separate attacks in Lebanon recently could be a signal that the Islamic State (IS) is planning a series of suicide bombings there, possibly to pressure Hezbollah to pull its forces out of Syria.
People are mourning in Burj el-Barajneh, a southern Beirut suburb hit Nov. 12 by twin explosions that killed at least 43 people and wounded more than 200. Most of the victims were residents of the busy neighborhood on the edge of Beirut’s international airport.

“[It was] only a few minutes between the first explosion and the second [explosion],” said Ali Husseini, a local who witnessed the aftermath of the attack. Husseini, a teacher, explained the timeline of the tragedy to Al-Monitor. “We first heard an explosion and rushed to the main street to see what happened. As I ran through the alleyways, another explosion rocked the place. It was clear to me that I was heading into carnage.”

Claims that three or four suicide bombers had been involved in the attack circulated among people on the scene. Some rumors, however, were quickly discredited. An image was widely shared via mobile message that claimed to show one of the attackers, but an online search by Al-Monitor confirmed it was an image from July of this year, from Taif, Saudi Arabia. Several media reports suggested the evening of the attack that Lebanese security forces arrested one of the suicide bombers, yet these reports were later refuted. The only person who appeared on TV channels as an alleged would-be bomber turned out to be a passerby from the area who was deemed suspicious by security personnel. Some outlets even named him and claimed he was from Tripoli, north Lebanon.

A Lebanese security source, speaking to Al-Monitor on condition of anonymity, claimed that “most probably there was only one suicide bomber. He parked the booby-trapped motorcycle, detonated it, then tried to find his way toward the mosque where a religious ceremony was being held, but he was obstructed.”

The suicide bomber was stopped by Adel Tormos, a 34-year-old man who sacrificed his life to save tens of lives in the nearby mosque. Tormos, a father of two, died as he tried to prevent the suicide bomber from.......

What are French Muslims saying? How are the refugees taking the renewed hatred towards them ...

all due  to the pitiful state they have been reduced to because of the satanic powers-that-be at the helm of our planet?

On my recent sojourn to parts of the EU, I saw refugees in Greece, Italy and Turkey who have been reduced to begging.  In Turkey the cruel govt there makes them wear a cardboard sign around their necks which says in English "I am a Syrian refugee" ... how demeaning is that!  Erdogan wants to show that the only beggars in Turkey happen to be Syrians and Turks are well fed and taken care of.  That might be the case, but it was still saddening to see such signs on human beings. I managed to speak to a refugee, a man wearing the sign around his neck and accompanied by a little girl of around 7 years or so.  He told us that he was from a village in Hama which was invaded by ISIS 2 years ago.  We had learnt to carry with us packaged goodies to pass around to the unfortunates we came across along with a few coins.  We also met a woman in Athens with a horde of kids.  If you had seen the sorrow in her eyes you would have been touched too ... unless you have lost all trace of humanity you have ever had.
Surprisingly, we didn't see Syrian refugees in the part of Spain (Catalonia) we visited. Perhaps because African refugees have set up shop there (lots of them as street hawkers) seen in touristy areas.
The  outlying area of France we visited was sparsely populated and although I did hear Arabic spoken here and there I concluded the speakers were Lebanese citizens of France.

As far as I am concerned, giving refuge to refugees in Canada is nothing to be afraid of as long as they are fully vetted and only families gain access and no single young men are let in ... because those are the ones who might be from ISIS.  Some of the churches in Toronto have already started sponsoring refugee families running away from conflicts in Africa. (Syria is not the only country with an outflow of refugees).

I wonder if Charlie Hebdo will print a "sex tape" cartoon of the France citizens killed in the terrorist attack of November 13 ...

something on the lines of their turd titled "Crash dans le Sinai  - Enfin la Sextape"  after the Russian plane crash and the horrific death of 224 innocent passengers.
Come on Charlie Hebdo Shithole ... show us your "talent" and "humor"  with a "sextape" on your own dead citizens ?

From Newsweek:
  Russia Outraged At Charlie Hebdo Cover Depicting Sinai Plane Crash
French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has once again prompted outrage in Russia by publishing a cartoon on its new cover that likens the crash of the Russian Metrojet liner in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula to a sex act.

The latest issue landed on newsstands on Wednesday with a cover cartoon showing what appears to be the Russian A321 liner with a missile penetrating its tail. The caption reads “The crash in Sinai: Finally the sex tape.”

The magazine, which often prints controversial depictions of current events, also published cartoons of the crash, which killed 224 people, in its issue last week. The cartoons were received with great offense in Russia: The Kremlin branded them “sacrilege” while members of parliament in Russia labeled the artists “scumbags” and called for a media campaign, mocking France......

What are the bets that weapons used by jihadis in Paris were French-made and supplied to the "moderates" in Syria?

Karma is a bitch !

The moment I heard about the terrorist attacks in Paris, I thought of what Assad had said about 3 years ago on the stupidity of the West in supporting terrorists groups.  He is on record as saying that "terrorism is like a scorpion that you can't keep in your pocket without it stinging you" or words to that effect.
He had predicted almost 3 years ago that the West's support of his enemies intention to destablize Syria and bring about his govt's downfall would backfire with the jihadis turning against their masters and bringing terror to the "heart of Europe and the US" ... and lo and behold, it has come to pass .... at least the first part of it....for now.

From RT dated April 2013
....In the statement that was made on Wednesday to state channel Al Ikhbariya, Assad warned that "The West has paid heavily for funding Al-Qaeda in its early stages. Today it is doing the same in Syria, Libya and other places, and will pay a heavy price in the heart of Europe and the United States."

He stressed that "from the first day, what is happening in Syria is dictated from abroad."

Assad’s interview also comes within a week of jihadist extremists the Al Nusra Front swearing support to Al-Qaeda’s commander Ayman al-Zawahiri, who’s idea it had been initially to turn Syria into an Islamic state.

The president continued to say that Syria was “facing a new war, a new method, with fighters, some of whom are Arabs, not Syrians," and that the "army is not fighting a war to liberate Syrian territory, but a war on terror."

While the president did say that progress was being made, he also pointed toward some “big powers, in particular the United States, that do not accept countries to be independent; they want them to be submissive." Although the West has claimed on occasion not to be supporting Al-Qaeda, Assad added that "everyone who carries weapons and attacks civilians is a terrorist, be they Al-Qaeda or not."....

Wasn't France's government eagerly funding, arming and training the jihadis so they could continue committing  those atrocious acts in Syria?  Hadn't we heard and seen aplenty what the "moderates" did with their weapons and how equally good they were at headchopping and maybe even better than their wahhabi shits in ISIS in making friends with influential people both in the USA and France?  Don't we know that the thousands of tonnes of state-of-the-art weapons were sold by the West's beloved "moderates" to the West's less beloved ISIS and to anyone having the money to buy the goodies?

From BBC dated  March 2013
France's president has defended his plan to supply arms to Syria's rebels, as activists mark two years since the anti-government uprising began.

Speaking after an EU meeting, Francois Hollande said the rebels had given guarantees that weapons would not fall into the wrong hands.

France and the UK want the EU to lift its arms embargo, but Germany says it has not yet decided if it agrees....

Here's more on how the French govt wallowed in bed with jihadis in Syria.

From WSWS dated Aug 2014
France admits it    directly supplied arms to Syrian “rebels”
President François Hollande confirmed in a Le Monde interview on August 19 that France has been directly supplying arms to the “rebels” of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in its proxy war to remove the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. This came ahead of the recent US decision to intervene militarily in Syria, ostensibly to crush the Islamic State (IS) opposition militia operating in Iraq and Syria.

French imperialism has been arming Syrian Islamist opposition forces since at least the spring of 2013. According to Le Monde, it provided weapons including 12.7-mm machine guns, rocket launchers, body armour and communications equipment—but “ nothing”, according to a Le Monde source, “which ‘could have been turned against us’ such as explosives”. The same weapons are also being shipped to the Peshmerga Kurdish militias in northern Iraq to stop the progress of the IS takeover, a direct product of the US war in Iraq.........

It is always the innocent citizens of the Western world who suffer the most for the disastrous foreign policy actions taken by the bastards they naively elect to high office.  The bastards never ever give a thought of what could happen to their own citizens if things didn't go according to their macabre roadmap to regime changes here, there, everywhere.  As long as they can make millions for themselves by shovelling big contracts to the armament making corporations, all's well with their world.

How many Western politicians have been killed by jihadis to date?  Any you know of? 
How many ordinary citizens of the West have been sacrificed to date because the bastards in power think of us as fodder and nothing more? 
Would the EU, and to a lesser extent, North America, be faced with the refugee/migrant invasion we see today if not for the idiots placed in high office?
Would there be so many wars all over the MidEast if we had true patriots as politicians instead of lackeys with their tongues hanging out for a taste of the riches offered by Israel and Saudi Arabia in return for fighting wars on their behalf?

Those who carry water for foreign powers and are clamoring for the break-up of Syria, please don't whine now about Muslim refugees/migrants flooding your lands, looting your homes and raping your women. You contributed to this crisis.  STFU and enjoy the future.

Truth is always extremely difficult to swallow and that's the reason why so many prefer to keep their heads firmly lodged in the sand.

How countries play "show me yours and I will show you mine"

From the time the Russian plane was destroyed, we have moved closer to the inevitable.  Whether you like it
or not, it's upon us. The IT is whatever you want to make of it.  Is the IT going to be worldwide?
Will the IT encompass Canada too?  Will the IT ensnare  the entire planet? Will the IT come about tomorrow, next week, next month, next year?  Everything we see, read or hear  from the moment the plane was brought down, is nothing else but ingenuous ways to waylay our opinions.  Can't you see the intensity of the propaganda?  Have we become so blinded with Kadashian's butt and Catlin's crotch that we have let each and every brain cell dry up and die?

Let's leave the incident of the Russian plane aside as I have thoughts on it that are neither to do with engine failure or bomb explosion.
Let's just go with whatever the Brits and the Americans and the Russians, but to be smaller degree, are opining on that crime.
Let's just go with the "bomb destroyed the airplane" scenario to keep it simple and neat.  Let's just say there was no element of the "show me yours and I will show you mine" game moves in that horrendous crime.

However, let's not dismiss the explosions of arsenal depots in China, as accidents.  Those should be definitely included in the game.

Now we come to the two instances below which are 100% to do with a game and that gives a whole different meaning to the word "play" when nations like the USA and Russia are "playing"  the game.

Russian TV "Accidentally" Leaks Footage of Classified Nuclear Torpedo Design
During a meeting of military officials in Sochi, Russian TV crews captured footage of a document not intended for public consumption. The supposedly “secret data,” which was subsequently shown on Russian television, revealed details of a “nuclear torpedo” designed to inflict “assured unacceptable damage” to enemy coastal installations.

As RT reports, a number of TV crews in attendance at the Tuesday meeting captured footage of a presentation slide titled “Ocean Multipurpose System: Status-6,” which allegedly showed details of a new nuclear submarine weapons system. The Kremlin has admitted that the footage, which appeared on TV, was “secret data” that should have never been broadcast.....

Questions we should ask now are:  What else is intended to be shown to each other by the three main players, USA/Israel/NATO (acting as one player) and Russian and China?  When will they start killing the citizens of each others countries?  Will my city or your city become a target?

How pathetic is this? Bush Sr trying to salvage family name

Too late papa Bush!!   Your entire family of fake Christians is doomed to be forever known as the satanic cult that's responsible for the death of thousands of innocent people around the world.  If this family had even a modicum of decency they would have discouraged Jeb Bush from joining the other potential destroyers of the USA who are running for the 2016 presidency.

'Iron-ass' Cheney and 'arrogant' Rumsfeld damaged America, says George Bush Sr

Former president claims hawkish reaction to 9/11 attacks and desire to ‘get our way in the Middle East’ hurt his son’s administration, says new biography

Former US president George HW Bush has hit out at Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, two of the most senior figures in his son’s administration, labelling them too “hardline” and “arrogant” in their handling of the September 11 attacks.

A new biography of the 41st president – Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey Of George Herbert Walker Bush – reveals that Bush Sr held Cheney and Rumsfeld responsible for the hawkish stance that “hurt” his son’s administration, Fox News reported on Wednesday.

The book, by Jon Meacham, is based on audio diaries that Bush recorded during his time in the White House, as well as interviews with the former president and his wife, Barbara.

Cheney served as defence secretary during George HW Bush’s 1989-1993 presidency and later as vice-president under President George W Bush. After 9/11, Bush Sr told his biographer: “I don’t know, he just became very hardline and very different from the Dick Cheney I knew and worked with....

I am now a proud 9/11 truther after listening to and reading Rebekah Roth

The meticulous, time-consuming research that Rebekah Roth, a retired air stewardess with 30 yrs experience working for a major US airline, has done ... is something to be admired.  Sure, her books are doing well and she is making money, and publishing stories about 9/11 has become a booming industry  ... and why not?!  It's the one event that has changed life all over this planet and so it is only fitting that we don't lose our focus on how it happened and get to the bottom of the crime of all crimes.  Roth has taken the trouble to try and open people's eyes to the hundreds of things about that fateful day that have never made sense to millions of people around the world.

The entire vid above, posted a little over a month ago,  is very interesting but also very long.  The first part is an interview with Christopher Bollyn an investigative reporter who had to flee the USA because of certain things he disclosed about 9/11.  I haven't read more on Bollyn so I don't have an opinion about him or his work but the stuff he relates  is very intriguing.  To get to Rebekah Roth's section go to approx. the 1:15 min. mark and listen with an open mind. 

I have read many versions, including the work of Dr.Judy Wood, perhaps the better known of the many trying to make sense of 9/11.  but I dismissed Dr.Wood because she does not have a credible explanation for WTC 7.  I like Roth's explanation.  According to her, a device (plane) meant for that building ran into trouble and didn't make it to that building and so WTC 7 collapsed without a plane crashing into it as it was destined to do, however, without the prop.  That's the best explanation I have ever read for the mysterious collapse of WTC 7.

Rona Ambrose chosen as interim Conservative leader

Yup ... this is indeed  "because it's 2015"  and it's not just with the Libs as the Cons have now shown.  The Conservative Party can come back  with a bang if the party focuses more on Canada and Canadians instead of being a lackey of the powers-that-be in the USA and Israel.  Learn from your mistakes.

Poor Larry King, the man who is seldom seen getting upset ...

(unless he's throwing darts in Piers Morgan's direction) almost lost it with Michael Savage who had myriad number of ways to try and educate King why we should not be paying any attention to climate change as it's as natural as nature itself.  I am no fan of Michael Savage as his warlike persona seeps through every now and then, but kudos to him for not towing the line on the "global warming" (new name "climate change") religion.

Let it happen, let the hole in the ozone layer extend to even the size of a country or two, it's not going
to be the end of us.  The end of us is going to be at the hands of the elite bastards responsible for brainwashing  and controlling  us and torturing us into accepting the neverending  wars on Muslim nations.

At one point, when Savage says he would like to know what the 2% of scientists who dissent from the global warming mantra have to say,  poor Larry counters back with "I will go with the 98% of the scientists" or words to that effect.  Just goes to show how much faith people have put in "scientists" and the MSM and the naive hosts like King are just pawns of the govt without even knowing it.   Scientists!!  This special brand of species that couldn't even detect a comet, the size of two football fields, heading towards our part of the solar system until a few days before its arrival.

Yup, scientists ... whether climate or any other kind of sciences, are the people to  be believed outright and treated like gods!!!  We are not likely to go wrong doing that, right?!  Let's just follow the herd. There's comfort in numbers even if  the herd is heading towards the ledge.  Let's distract ourselves from the genocide and mayhem that the USA is raining down on the peoples of this earth by giving heed to "climate change."

Libya's self-declared KSA-aligned Islamist govt threatens to flood EU with migrants

I  for one am hoping the islamists make good on their threat.  This would be the payment the EU gets for going along with the USA's satanic plans for the Middle East and Africa.  Send the migrants to EU, dear self-declared Islamic govt of Libya, send them in their thousand-fold.  The more the merrier.  Let the suicide bombings  fireworks begin.

Colin Freeman writing at TelegraphUK:
Libya warns it could flood Europe with migrants if EU does not recognise new Islamist government
Islamists who took power in Tripoli issue veiled threat in response to West's refusal to accept their legitimacy

 Libya has issued a veiled threat to send "hundreds of thousands" of extra migrants to Europe if Brussels does not give official recognition to its self-declared Islamist government.

Officials say they could hire boats to send large numbers of African migrants across the Mediterranean, massively adding to the numbers already reaching Europe's borders.

The warning was made by a spokesman for Libya's General National Congress in an interview with The Telegraph in the Libyan capital, Tripoli....

.... Jamal Zubia, the Congress's foreign media spokesman, told The Telegraph that Libya was currently spending tens of millions of pounds a year stopping migrants from crossing the Mediterranean, through the use of detention centres and repatriation programs.

He said that if Europe continued to refuse to recognise the Congress's authority, the Libyan government could reverse the policy.

"To be honest, I have advised my goverment many times already that we should hire boats and send them to Europe," he said. "We are protecting the gates of Europe, yet Europe does not recognise us and does not want to recognise us. So why should we stop the migrants here?" ....

U.S. to Send Special Operations Forces to Syria  

In a major policy shift, the White House has announced a team of special operations forces numbering less than 50 will be sent to Syria. This marks the first sustained U.S. troop presence in Syria since President Obama launched a bombing campaign against the self-proclaimed Islamic State in September 2014. Announcing the move on Friday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest denied it marks a shift in strategy.

    Josh Earnest: "The president did make a decision to intensify that support by offering a small number of U.S. special operations military personnel to offer them some advice and assistance on the ground as they take the fight to ISIL. So this is an intensification of a strategy that the president announced more than a year ago."

Here's an example of how countries blackmail each other

Below the outcome of wannabe caliph Erdogan's tantrum when Russia sided with Assad. Erdogan threatened to withdraw from a previously signed agreement with Russia for building of a nuclear power station and that got Russia doing .......... just read the article below.

Zulfikar Dolgan writing at AlMonitor:
Russia puts brakes on Turkey's truck traffic

In September, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin together inaugurated the newly built Moscow Cathedral Mosque in central Moscow.

he two countries were already having serious disagreements on the Syrian crisis and the status of President Bashar al-Assad. But Turkey and Russia already had opposing views on Syria, Ukraine and the Crimean Peninsula but had managed to keep their disputes away from their substantive economic relations. When Russia was faced with US and EU embargoes, it opened its markets to Turkish firms, especially in foodstuffs.

Russia, which is hosting the 2018 World Cup soccer tournament, continued building mega-facilities for the tournament and gave priority to Turkish contractors.

It was Putin’s clear support of the Syrian army and the Assad regime and attacks on the Islamic State (IS), but mostly against opposition groups deemed moderate by Turkey, that set off an era of mutual threats in Turkish-Russian and Erdogan-Putin ties. Erdogan bitterly criticized the Russian air attacks and violations of Turkish airspace and declared that he will not call on Putin anymore.

It was Erdogan who put their meticulously preserved relations on the agenda and made first reference to possible sanctions against Russia. He said Turkey can stop its natural gas purchases from Russia that supplies more than 55% of Turkey’s needs and award the building of the $20 billion Akkuyu nuclear power station to another, non-Russian contractor.

Russia did not heed Erdogan’s threats and counterattacked. Its first countermeasure was to stop issuing transit passage documents to Turkish trucks carrying Turkey’s exports to Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Mongolia.

Turkish exports to the Middle East and the Gulf had already hit bottom when Turkish trucks lost transit routes because of clashes in Iraq and Syria. Now an annual $2 billion worth of exports to Central Asia is at risk with the Russian sanction.

Press Release from Doctors Without Borders dated October 29, 2015

Evidence is piling up that Saudi Arabia and coalition (which includes the USA and USA's other partners in crime) should be taken to The Hague and it should be done as soon as possible.

Yemen: Denial of Hospital Bombing by Saudi-Led Coalition Contradicts All Facts 
PARIS/NEW YORK—Despite denials by the Saudi-led coalition, it is beyond doubt that it struck and destroyed a hospital supported by the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Haydan, Yemen, on October 26, MSF said today, adding that the hospital had previously been damaged by coalition attacks.

The Haydan area has been under intense airstrikes for months. During this time, MSF alerted the Saudi-led coalition on multiple occasions that the airstrikes in Haydan were destroying civilian facilities and damaging the hospital, as directly witnessed by MSF teams. On the night of October 26, MSF alerted Saudi officials in Riyadh that the hospital was under attack. "Saudi authorities are denying the evident truth of having destroyed a hospital," said Laurent Sury, head of MSF emergency operations. "This is an alarming sign for the Yemeni people and for those trying to assist them. How are we to draw lessons from what happened when all we face are denials? How can we continue to work without any form of commitment that civilian structures will be spared?"

On June 30, July 6, and July 7, airstrikes hit roughly 250 meters from the hospital, targeting houses, a school and a market.

On July 23, seven bombs fell in Haydan, hitting a market, a gas station, two houses and a school situated 75 meters from the hospital and shattering hospital windows and walls. In all cases, MSF alerted coalition forces.  No responses were ever provided.

MSF again urges the Saudi-led coalition to provide clear explanations for the October 26 attack, and insists that the coalition and its supporters must commit to respect health structures and allow the delivery of humanitarian assistance to populations cut off from all aid.

Many of the returning soldiers from the Iraq and Afghanistan illegal killing fields are now employed in the kind of jobs where bullies and brutality go hand-in-hand and misconduct and sadism is overlooked and goes unpunished.  Returning soldiers are no longer heroes as we once thought they were.

World honchos in Vienna discussing the inception of the new caliphate that ....

USA and her allies have helped create.

Pepe Escobar writing at AsiaTimes:
The Caliph at the gates of Vienna 
History has a jolly habit of repeating itself as surrealist farce. Is it 1683 all over again, with the Ottoman Empire laying siege to Vienna just to be defeated by the “infidels” at the last minute?

No; it’s 2015 and a Caliph simulacrum – Ibrahim, a.k.a. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi — has prompted a gaggle of world powers, lesser powers and assorted minions to converge to Vienna to discuss how to defeat him.

Westphalians, we got a problem. None of this makes any sense if Iran is not at the table discussing a solution for the Syrian tragedy. Moscow knew it from the start. Washington — reluctantly — had to admit the obvious. But the problem was never Iran. The problem is the ideological matrix of goons who metastasize into Caliphs: Saudi Arabia.

Back — inevitably — to surrealism. Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir stated, “The view of our partners … was that we should test the intentions of the Iranians and the Russians in arriving at a political solution in Syria, which we all prefer.”

Translation: “Our partners” means “His Masters’ Voice,” Washington; and the beheading-addicted oil hacienda does not “prefer” a political solution; they want regime change and a House of Saud satrapy.

Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, the EU, France and even Qatar — whose mini-emir wanted to launch his own military campaign for regime change before someone told him to shut up — are keeping company to Iran in Vienna, alongside the US, Russia, Turkey and the House of Saud.

Talk about parallel lives. One thing is a polite altercation ........

Palpatine Dmitry, 25, won 54.4 percent of the votes in Sunday’s mayoral election in Odessa, according to a mayoral candidate’s Facebook Post.

Palpatin Dmitry, born in 1990, who works as an emperor at ‘LLC Palpatine Finance Group’ makes it to the city council on the Trust Affairs party list,” a bemused Aleksandry Borovik wrote.

“This is beyond my understanding,” the pol added. “People, what’s wrong with you?”

In the “Star Wars” saga, Emperor Palpatine is known as Darth Vader’s mentor and is infamous for destroying the Jedi order........
