The Mass Psychosis Of 9 /11 Will Never Be Healed / Politics / War on Terror

By: Andrew_McKillop

The Cognitive Dissonance Theory
Posted by the group of authors called Cognitivedissonance on twoicefloes.com in its 'Dispatches' series, today 11 September, a very long and well-argued article examines the now intricately or insanely woven strands of the rational and irrational called “9 / 11”.

Trying to separate them is basically impossible but we have to try.

Radical Islam's Crisis of Competing Caliphates / Politics / ISIS Islamic State

By: STRATFOR

The rise of the Islamic State will inspire other jihadist groups to claim their own caliphates and emirates. In the long run, the extremism of these contrived dominions and the competition among them will undermine the jihadist movement. However, before that happens, the world will witness much upheaval.

As More U.S. Bombs Drop, Empire Begins Fall / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

On Wednesday evening, September 10, 2014, hours before the thirteenth anniversary of 9/11, President Obama announced his decision to bomb Syria and deploy more troops inside Iraq. While the February events in Kiev could be seen marking the EU's capitulation to neo-fascism in Europe in submission to Washington's hegemonic diktats, Obama's arrogant militancy as presently expressed should be viewed as the beginning of the fall of American Empire. Whether it falls this year, the next, or in three to five years, it will end through military defeat, economic collapse and by forces from within that will - by necessity - fight for self-survival against their own government and their sectarian political oppressors and opponents.  America will then inherit the mantle that Germany endured for over fifty years following World War II. At that, the rotating sphere of world dominance will have completed its cycle. Unipolar will be dead. The sun will have set in the West and risen in the East. Many will die fighting against the inevitable. Many will blame everyone but themselves.

For the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, Syria and Iraq were a good place to start their campaign, but in order to survive and prosper it knew from the outset that it had no choice but to set its sights on the ultimate prize: the oil fields of Saudi Arabia.

What do you think the situation in Scotland would be like if an army acting on behalf of the London government had just killed thousands of Scots in Glasgow and Edinburgh over the past 6 months and destroyed their streets and homes and water and electricity grids, and if moreover that government had seized power after a violent coup and essentially been handpicked by Washington?

Cameron and Miliband Desperately Attempt to Prevent Scotland Committing Suicide / Politics / UK Politics

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Leaders of both major political parties, Ed Milliband (Labour) and David Cameron (Conservatives) headed north on Wednesday to try and persuade 9% of Britain in terms of population and economy not to commit suicide by voting YES in what is termed as an independence referendum but in reality is towards marking the start of the dissolution of a 300 year old union of the Island of Britain that over the centuries has become ever more intertwined that on September 18th could begin the dangerous process of being ripped apart all for the tunnel vision obsession of Scottish power hungry nationalists such as Alex Salmond who literally are willing to sacrifice their own nation for personal vanity.

Scottish Independence UK Catastrophe - The Balkanisation of Britain - Video / Politics / UK Politics

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The people of Britain are waking up to the potential reality of the end of the United Kingdom if as recent opinion polls increasingly suggest Scotland votes YES for independence / dissolution of the union on September 18th 2014.

This video answers key questions as to what would happen to both Scotland and the UK financially, economically and socially should Scotland vote YES, as the risks are far beyond that which many people have thus contemplated, far beyond just Scotland gaining independence but rather acting to blow itself and the United Kingdom apart.

Old Gold, New Debt And Scottish Independance / Politics / Scotland

By: Andrew_McKillop

A Deliberately Confused Debate
As I noted in a recent article, when or if Scotland separated from England and received its share of the UK's 310-ton official gold reserves, and its share of UK national or sovereign debt officially placed at a rather exact and reassuring total of 1410 billion pounds (about $2200 billion), Scotland's central bank would be the proud possessor of 26.35 tons of gold.

The Scotland Black Swan / Politics / US Politics

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Got a mail from a friend in Scotland late last night that got me thinking. “Unfortunately, using Ireland as a model of fracture, we may start blowing up each other.” I’ve been reading a lot lately, in between all the other things, about Scotland, as should be obvious from my essay (Jim Kunstler tells me I can use that word) yesterday, Please Scotland, Blow Up The EU, and sometime today a thought crept up on me that has me wondering how ugly this thing is going to get. I think it can get very bad.

Ralph Raico writes: I’ve just watched for about the third time the 1962 film, The Longest Day, a great action movie on the Allied invasion of Normandy. Among its several pluses: an all-star male cast, including a young Sean Connery, as well as a brief segment starring a seriously good-looking woman bearing a strong resemblance to Sophia Loren.

Scotland's 26.35 Tons Of British Gold / Politics / UK Politics

By: Andrew_McKillop

Massive Threat to England
Proving it isn't yet the end of summer and its silly season, at least for journalists (and politicians), reports from sources including Reuters -  “Ownership of UK gold up for renegotiation if Scotland votes Yes”, September 9 - say that independent Scotland could lay claim to a part of the United Kingdom's 310-tonne gold reserves if votes go in favour of the "Yes" campaign. Ownership of Britain's bullion hoard will be up for negotiation along with other assets. How about the debts and liabilities?

Did Putin Just Bring Peace to Ukraine? / Politics / Ukraine Civil War

By: Mike_Whitney

There is no way to overstate the significance of what has transpired in Ukraine in the last three weeks. What began as a murderous onslaught on the mainly Russian-speaking population of east Ukraine, has turned into a major triumph against a belligerent and expansionistic empire that has been repulsed by a scrappy, battle-hardened militia engaged in a conventional, land-based war. The conflict in east Ukraine is Obama’s war; launched by Obama’s junta government, executed by Obama’s proxy army, and directed by Obama’s advisors in Kiev. The driving force behind the war is Washington’s ambitious pivot to Asia, a strategy that pits Russia against Europe to prevent further economic integration and to establish NATO forward-operating bases on Russia’s western border. Despite the overheated rhetoric, the talk of a (NATO) “Rapid Reaction Force”, and additional economic sanctions; the US plan to draw Ukraine into the western sphere of influence and weaken Russia in the process, is in tatters. And the reason it is in tatters is because a highly-motivated and adaptable militia has trounced Obama’s troopers at every turn pushing the Ukrainian army to the brink of collapse. Check out this frontline update from The Saker:

Suckering the Public on a War of Terror / Politics / War on Terror

By: BATR

The gullibility of the American public only exceeded by the ease that the fascist establishment is able to conduct their criminal government without any meaningful protest - just keeps rolling along. The mainstream media is still able to practice their black art of painting their masterpiece, entitled discovering a new cell of terrorists in every news report. Making up a scripted narrative to fix all seasons, take the creative ability of a screenwriter and the guidance of the intelligence community to shepherd the story to fix the immediate political objective. In a world where truth is the rarest of all commodities, you can be assured that the simpletons, who believe the psychological warfare accounts reported as fact, will invariably remain docile fools.

Please Scotland, Blow Up The European Union / Politics / European Union

By: Raul_I_Meijer

You know they’re desperate when they play the royal card and announce a new baby on the way. Britain, and especially Downing Street 10, got a huge scare last week when a poll showed the Scottish independence movement is now favorite to win the September 18 referendum. It’s not entirely clear, but I don’t think Cameron and his crew would be able to stay on if Scotland secedes from the UK.

There Is a Rogue Elephant in Your House / Politics / Government Intervention

One time when I was in Burma (now Myanmar), I spent a couple of days riding around the forest by elephant back. Elephants are a fine thing to have in the forest but, believe it or not, you have one living in your house with you. And you should do something about it now, before your house is wrecked and you and your family get stomped in the process.

Will The 300 Year Old UK Survive? / Politics / UK Politics

By: Andrew_McKillop

No Longer Certain “No” Will Win
Unsurprisingly to me, the Yes voters in Scotland are getting more affirmative and less secretive about their preference for an independent Scotland. Because its a classic “first past the post” voting system and process, a minority will decide what happens – but few complain about that time-worn electoral process in Britain, except for example the Lib Dems who want proportional voting because it would give them more seats in the Westminster parliament.

Downing of Malaysia Flight 17 Sinister Pretext for War with Russia / Politics / Eastern Europe

By: Mike_Whitney

The Obama administration has failed to produce any hard evidence that pro-Russia separatists were responsible for the downing of Malaysia Flight 17. The administration’s theory– that the jetliner was downed by a surface-to-air missile launched from rebel territory in east Ukraine– is not supported by radar data, satellite imagery, eyewitness testimony or forensic evidence. In fact, there is no factual basis for the hypothesis at all. It’s merely politically-motivated speculation that’s been repeated endlessly in the media to shape public opinion. The preponderance of evidence suggests a different scenario altogether, that is, that MH17 was shot down by Ukrainian fighters in an effort to frame the pro-Russia separatists and demonize Russia by implication. This is precisely why the MH17 story has vanished from all the major media for the last three weeks. It’s because the bloody fingerprints point to Obama’s puppet-government in Kiev.

The West Paves The Road To War With Lies / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Official statements from the Russian government indicate that the president and foreign minister continue to rely on the good will of “our Western partners” to work out a reasonable diplomatic solution to the trouble in Ukraine caused by Washington. Not only is there no evidence of this good will in Western capitals, the hostile measures against Russia are increasing. Moreover, hostile measures are on the rise even though their main effect is to disadvantage Europe.

Islamic Terror And North / South War  / Politics / ISIS Islamic State

By: Andrew_McKillop

Theocracy and the Police State
August 30 on FOX News, King Abdullah of the Wahabite Kingdom of Saudi Arabia said he thinks ISIS terror attacks in Europe will start within 1 month, and in the USA within 2 months. When do they start in your own police state, King Abdullah? In the Wahabite Kingdom, which dates to 1744 and is named for the extremist lay preacher Abdul Wahab, all religions except so-called ultra conservative and puritanical, or fundamentalist and austere forms of Sunni Islam are forbidden. Attempts to practice any other religion are punished by whipping, imprisonment or for foreigners, immediate deportation.
