Blast From The Past : Putin Preditcs False Flags A Year Ago

VPutinNews48

Vladimir Putin, "Idlib ‘chemical attack’ was a false flag, more false flags to come! — Putin on Syria", Russia Insider (11 April 2017)

I thought it was worth reposting this link under the present circumstances. A year ago Vladimir Putin claimed that he had intelligence indicating that more "false flags like this one" (the chemical attack in Idlib) were being prepared elsewhere in Syria in order to "accuse the Syrian government of an attack."

Ron Paul & Daniel McAdams, "Another False Flag - Will Trump Escalate in Syria?", Ron Paul Liberty Report (09 April 2018)

"Rebel-allied organizations in Syria have claimed that the government has released chlorine gas near Ghouta, killing dozens. The Syrians and Russians deny the charges. Neocons are all demanding that Trump launch a bigger attack or America will "lose face." Will the Russians sit back and allow another US attack on the Syrian government? And if they don't?"—Ron Paul Liberty Report

"Comrade Putin, we have successfully stockpiled novichoks in secret for ten years, and kept them hidden from the OPCW inspectors. We have also trained our agents in secret novichok assassination techniques. The programme has cost hundreds of millions of dollars, but now we are ready.

Boris Johnson A Liar (Craig Murray)

NovichokNews48

Craig Murray, "Boris Johnson A Catagorical Liar", CraigMurray.org.uk (22 March 2018)

"Evidence submitted by the British government in court today proves, beyond any doubt, that Boris Johnson has been point blank lying about the degree of certainty Porton Down scientists have about the Skripals being poisoned with a Russian “novichok” agent."

Doubts About "Novichoks" (McKeigue & Robinson)

NovichokNews48

McKeigue & Robinson, "Doubts About 'Novichoks' ", Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media (March 2018)

The link is to a briefing note by the Working Group on Syria, Media and Propaganda authored by Professors Paul McKeigue and Piers Robinson. It is important to bear in mind that the note reflects work in progress, but that "the substantive questions raised need answering, especially given the seriousness of the political crisis that is now developing." They welcome comments and corrections.

"Novichok" Means Russia? Claim Discredited (Nafeez Ahmed)

NovichokNews48

Nafeez Ahmed, "The UK government is manufacturing its nerve agent case for ‘action’ on Russia", Insurge Intelligence (14 March 2018)

Although I'm recommending Nafeez Ahmed's article, let me just add a few thoughts on this Skripal affair, because it's been bothering me (as, I suspect, it has you). What would Putin have had to gain from this? It's been suggested that the attack was some kind of warning to other would-be traitors. But if you work for intelligence agencies surely you don't need such a warning. You know the score already: You sell secrets, you may well end up.

The Passing of Dr. James W. Sire

JamesSireNews48

"James W. Sire" InterVarsity Press (07 February 2018)

It is with sadness that I pass on news of the death of James W. Sire, the well-known Christian writer and former senior editor at InterVarsity Press. This afternoon I received an email from my contact at IVP who kindly informed me that Dr. Sire had passed away last night. But amidst the sadness, there is also peace—which I wish for his family and friends—in the knowledge that he is with his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, whom he served for so many years.

Those Pesky 9/11 People ! (BBC News)

Chris Bell, "The people who think 9/11 may have been as 'inside job' ", BBC News (01 February 2018)

I amaze myself. Even though—as the writer reliably informs us (and he must be reliable because he's writing for the BBC)—"subsequent investigations have made it clear that the tower structures were weakened by the inferno from the planes and felled by the weight of collapsing floors"—even now—yes, even now—"some people refuse to believe this version of events."

Trump's Announced Syria Occupation (Eric Zuesse)

Flag of SyriaNews48

Eric Zuesse, "Trump’s Announced Strategy for Occupying Syria", © Strategic Culture (30 January 2018)

“The President has committed, as a matter of strategy, that we will not leave Syria. We are not going to declare victory and go. And that is not my opinion; that’s the President’s strategic judgment. We’re going to stay for several reasons: stabilization and assistance in the vital north and northeast, protection of our allies the Syrian Democratic Forces, who have fought so valiantly against ISIS in the northeast, try to work to help transform the political structures in that area to a model for the rest of Syria, and capable of being credibly represented in a new Syrian state; but for other reasons as well, including countering Iran and its ability to enhance its presence in Syria, and serving as a weight or force helping us to achieve some of those broader objectives.”

Iranian Protests & the Deep State (Cartalucci)

Tony Cartalucci, "Iranian Protests : Deep State's Unfinished Business", © New Eastern Outlook (03 January 2018)

Protests have been reported across several cities in Iran over the last several days of December 2017. Protesters allegedly decry Iran’s economy as well as the nation’s involvement in nearby Syria. The Western media has attempted to cultivate two narratives – one focused on portraying the protests as widespread, spontaneous, and having focused first on “economic grievances” before becoming political – another narrative openly admitting to US involvement and praising US President Donald Trump for “standing up” to the “Iranian regime.”

Old news? Yes, but maybe important. I've noticed that this June report from the Wall Street Journal (subtitled "Trump administration moves to make Middle Eastern country a higher priority target for American spies") is being referenced by many people as a possible window onto current events in Iran. Of particular note is this sentence:

What's Happening In Iran? (Brandon Turbeville)

Brandon Turbeville, "What the Hell is Happening in Iran?", © Brandon Turbeville, Activist Post (31 December 2017)

A familiar sight is taking place across Iran tonight and it has been for the last three days. Protests are taking place in numerous cities citing grievances and demanding that the Ayatollah and Iranian President step down. For a few days, the protests remained non-violent but now violence has indeed flared up as protesters have laid waste to a number of government properties and those belonging to “pro-government militias.”

UK Government Admits "Losing" Papers (The Guardian)

Ian Cobain, "Government Admits "Losing" Thousands of Papers from National Archives : Documents on the Falklands, Northern Ireland’s Troubles, and the infamous Zinoviev letter among those ‘misplaced’, leaving historians suspicious", The Guardian (26 December 2017)

Isn't our government wonderful? Apparently the UK's Foreign Office (Foreign & Commonwealth Office, to give it its properly bombastic title) likes to request sensitive files from the UK National Archives—with, of course, every good intention of returning them in due course (wink, wink)—only to end up "misplacing" them in the course of its patriotic duties. Oh, those "careless" buffoons!

Ian Paul, "Jesus Really Wasn't Born in a Stable", Psephizo.com

It may be disappointing for those who like to cling to the traditional stable scene, but the first Christmas might not have looked quite the way most of us (in the West) have been brought up to imagine. I must get a copy of Kenneth E. Bailey's Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes, which the blogger recommends and which I've been promising myself for the last three years! (Don't suppose anyone fancies sending a belated Christmas present? Just kidding...)

Conflict, Stability & Security Vs Human Rights (Mark Curtis)

UnionJackNews48

Mark Curtis, "The UK’s Conflict, Stability and Security Fund: Diverting Aid and Undermining Human Rights", MarkCurtis.info (05 December 2017)

This is an "interesting" fund: the so-called "Conflict, Stability and Security Fund" (CSSF). At £1 billion per year, and supposedly aimed at promoting the UK's national security interests abroad (whatever they might be), the CSSF seems—as Mark Curtis complains—increasingly to be "using aid money to fund military and counter-terrorism projects which do not appear focused on what aid should be about."

Antony Rotunno: "Adventures in Retrospect" (https://antonyrotunno.bandcamp.com/)

Just a quick note: do check out the new album by Antony Rotunno entitled Adventures in Retrospect. Antony, as many of you know, is a "friend of the show" having been on TMR several times over the last few years, and hopefully will be again in the near future (we're cooking something up). When he joined us last time, we spoke a great deal about music and its power to effect change, so do navigate over to BandCamp.com to sample Antony's own musical ceativity, and perhaps lend your support by buying the album.
