West, Israel Plot to Plunder Syria’s Natural Resources : Analyst

A spastic Obama and his CIA mercs laid bare

PRESS TV
10/13/2012

A prominent analyst says the US, other Western powers and Israel are fomenting violence in Syria in order to plunder the Middle Eastern country’s resources, Press TV reports.


Now that the psycho Romney is gaining on him, a desperate Obama needs another war to divert attention to his flagging poll numbers and if he plays his cards right, he could cancel elections in the event of war, declare martial law and become "President for Life"

“If we can be honest, Syria now sits on one of the largest newly found repositories of natural gas that the Europeans want to steal,” Randy Short, member of Dignity and Human Rights and Peace Organization in Washington in an interview with Press TV on Saturday.

He went on to say that, at the same time the US regional allies Israel and Qatar are also aiming to steal Syria’s trove of resources.

“The Qataris, who have natural gas, do not want there to be competition... the Israelis, they also have a natural gas deal,” he added.




The analyst also noted that the fact that the Syrian opposition has resorted to violence rather than negotiation indicates that they would only “rule through terror.”

“You will have another Libya. You will have a situation like you did in Iraq until the Shia community was able to emerge a leadership that could bring some stability to most of the country. They [the opposition] have no desire for there to be stability,” he explained.

Short further argued that it would be the best thing if the Russians and the Chinese speak and act with regards to the Syrian crisis.

“We need to have this before the American election when you consider that the frontrunner, Romney, who looks like Frankenstein with the screws removed and the facial, could be the next president. He is basically in the pocket of rabid war-hawk Zionists who don’t mind causing a Third World War,” he concluded.

Romney Sings Doo-Da War

The fact that mentally retarded Romney is even running for President makes U.S. laughing stock of the world

The Roving Eye via Asia Times
By Pepe Escobar
10/12/2012

It's time for the 3am question. A crisis erupts - or is manufactured - in some turbulent part of the world and putative US President Mitt Romney must rise to the occasion. What is a gallant server of the 47% to do to save the free world?


Truly frightening:  A choice between a mental retard...
In inkling of 47% Mitt's foreign policy vision was offered by his speech in Virginia early this week. [1] Some have called it Mission Impossible. But no, this is not Lalo Schifrin territory. Too cool. [2]

With all due respect to grandmaster Phil Spector, this is more like the Wall of Sound.

So here's how Mitt is going to save the Empire from decline. Move over, Crystals, and say hello to Mitt's version of Da Doo Ron Ron [3] : Da Doo War War.

Yeah, my heart stood still

Wall of Sound Mitt could also go roots and do a Slim Harpo/Yardbirds take on Got War If You Want It. [4] But Da Doo War War is more appropriate to his family man image. Got Iraq? Da Doo War War; none of this "abrupt withdrawal of our entire troop presence" nonsense. We're going after anything that moves - Sunnis, Shi'ites, al-Qaeda, Eye-ranian spies, Sadrists. Who cares if we can't stay legally? We stay illegally. And if anyone complains, we reinvade.

Got Af (without Pak)? We stay there way beyond 2014. And with all our nuggets in the Empire of Bases intact. For Mitt, "the route to more war - and to potential attacks here are home" is…to wage endless war. None of this nonsense of a "politically timed retreat that abandons the Afghan people to the same extremists who ravaged their country and used it to launch the attacks of 9/11". Mitt, though, has not released any details of how he plans to prosecute Enduring Freedom Forever.


... and a moronic warmonger
Got Iran? Mitt will "put the leaders of Iran on notice"; he will "prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability"; he will "impose new sanctions on Iran, and will tighten the sanctions we currently have"; he will "restore the permanent presence of aircraft carrier task forces in both the Eastern Mediterranean and the Gulf region" (well, they are already parked there anyway).

So expect a Mitt-ordered naval blockade - to complement the Obama-ordered financial blockade. The next step would be Da Doo War War all the way; after all, Mitt has vowed to wage war "for the sake of peace".

Got Syria? It's Da Doo (Civil) War. Trust Mitt to "identify and organize" every Salafi-jihadi in town "who share our values" - perhaps by having them undergo an anti-Americanism test ("Have you ever belonged to a terrorist organization?")

As much as "the president has failed to lead in Syria", Wall of Sound Mitt will "work with our partners to identify and organize those members of the opposition who share our values and ensure they obtain the arms they need to defeat Assad's tanks, helicopters, and fighter jets." Forget about that "leading from behind" nonsense; welcome back to the 1980s jihad against the Soviets remix.

Got Israel? That's slow motion Da Doo War War to enable his close pal Benjamin Bibi Netanyahu to smash what's left of the Palestinians. Mitt's plan is to "kick the ball down the field and hope that ultimately, somehow, something will happen and resolve it" - as he said in his 47% fund raiser. Perhaps the Lord high above will say "I'm mad as hell and I can't take it anymore" and unleash Armageddon, who knows. Anyway, forget about Mitt even trying to sell the illusion to the Palestinians that one day they will have a state. Got Middle Kingdom China? Da Doo War War would be quite a red line - after all they are the US's creditors - but Mitt will emit his mighty roar against their "assertiveness" which is "sending chills through the region".

Got Russia - aka the Soviet Union? Da Doo (Cold) War all the way, as in last April; Mitt is no wimp like those Obamites who entered "into an agreement with the Soviets, excuse me, with Russia" on nuclear negotiations. [5] Russian President Vladimir Putin should be quaking inside his judo black belt; "There will be no flexibility with Vladimir Putin." Got Yemen, Somalia, Central Africa, even, who knows, Venezuela? Da Doo (Drone) War.

In a nutshell; all those Chinks, Soviets, Ay-rabs, Eye-ranians only respect one thing; the power of the stick. The Wall of Sound. Da Doo War War.

No, his name is not Bill.

The man who Bill Clinton now calls "Moderate Mitt" has proven to be an immoderately stern foreign policy ace. Time for a quick recap. According to his credo, couched by a wall of neo-con armchair warriors, the Soviet Union, "excuse me", Russia, is the US number one enemy.

The Palestinians - well, they basically should roll over and die. The Brits, they are a bunch of pampered moochers; who knows whether they would be capable of hosting the Olympics at a Salt Lake City level. The whole of Spain is a 47% wasteland; certified moochers, alongside, who knows, most of the Spanish-speaking universe; and by the way the pain in Spain was the government's fault (when in fact it is derived from a private sector real estate bubble).

How to rate such a Hall of Fame performance? Enter a voice of reason via Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff for Colin Powell. Commenting on Mitt's past and future foreign policy achievements, Wilkerson said, "Utterly unbelievable…Romney [is] "operating on a Cold War music sheet". [6]

Cold War indeed. What's left for us mere survivors is to join in the Mitt sing-along. Here's how Phil Spector put together the instrumental track for Da Doo Ron Ron. [7] Feel free to add your own words - and in the best Cold War Wall of Sound spirit, let's all merrily gun down Da Doo War War.

Invasions and Outvasions : Preemptive Wars and Cultural Blending

Obama, Clinton and Netanyahu will soon reap the whirlwind of war via their lapdog proxy Turkey and Erdogan - with Israel and Turkey being turned into parking lots and being dismembered in the process

World News
By Dallas Darling
10/11/2012

It is sad that when using the term "invasion" or "preemptive wars," there is really no language that also occupies the same public spaces and that is similarly different. Recently when President Barack Obama, including his former predecessor, spoke of Sept. 9-11 and how the preemptive invasions and military occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq revived American values and helped enforce secular democracies around the world, absent were the concepts of an "outvasion" and cultural blending. In truth, and in the midst of these brutal wars of mass slaughter that have killed tens of thousands of people while creating millions of refugees and the near elimination of certain ethnic and religious groups, popular Johnny Cash CD's and AT&T cell phones are not the only items being exchanged. Various aspects of Islamic cultures and values have outvaded from Asia and the Eastern Mediterranean making their presence known, even embraced, in America.


Ongoing debates over Guantanamo Prison Camp and indefinite detentions-both domestic and foreign citizens-have led many Americans to deeply reflect and ask questions about the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, specifically natural rights pertaining to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. At issue too is a secular rule of law, Islamic justice, and the UN's Declaration of Human Rights granting individuals a fair and speedy trial with a jury of their peers. While Sept. 11 and preemptive invasions have made Americans question their own systems of state and national laws as compared to Islamic laws, others have, like predominantly Muslim nations, recognized and experienced an utter betrayal of limited government and American values of liberty. Torture, surveillance, and military-police forces working jointly to disrupt or sabotage dissent and basic rights, have caused the government to expand. Some feel threatened by this perpetual "militarization."

Along with political blending of secular and Islamic laws, rights, justice, and shared emotional responses to 9-11 and preemptive invasions, there has been an outvasion of religious blending among Muslims, Christians, and Jews. A number of interfaith dialogues and synagogue-mosque-church councils have emerged to solve religious and ethnic strife. This has caused a growing acceptance of certain Islamic doctrines and beliefs. While this coming together of faiths has increased understanding and toleration, it has also addressed human frailty. Several religious and civic organizations have been impacted by Islam's concept of ummah-the importance of local and worldwide religious communities. They too have emphasized communal ideals of social justice, group morality, and equality in solving crime, violence, divorce, extreme and hurtful individualism, and destructive addictions.

Along with Muslims emboldening others to practice religious disciplines of prayer, fasting, and alms, Americans have been encouraged by their dedication to order, stability, and harmony, especially within the family. Since the family is the foundation of Islamic societies and secure families shape a person's identity, a familial blending has occurred as more and more Americans search for solutions in preventing familial disunity. Some have started to question vicious and market-oriented forces that dehumanize, sexualize, and use others for profit or promote selfish and immoral behaviors. While this outvasion has caused some to awaken from spiritual and moral apathy, Islamic beliefs challenge the notion of a strict separation of church and state. Much like other faiths, secularism and a free market economy is a belief system too. Why, then, should religious faiths be personal and privatized while state secularism and state capitalism is publicized, even enforced?

An economic blending, outvasion, between Islam and America has also occurred. The zakat, setting aside a portion of one's own wealth for the poor, has led some to do the same in trying to alleviate poverty. Forbidding interest (riba) on loans has forced financial organizations to question their own lending practices. This monetary revivalism has caused a reevaluation of priorities and monetary giving while addressing homelessness, a lack of affordable housing, illiteracy, and the economically disadvantaged. Some have noticed that Islamic organizations and Muslims work in the fields of social services (hospitals, clinics, legal aid societies, education) and consider it a "calling." They too have sought a deeper meaning and higher purpose in their professions and services. Still, Prophet Mohammad's example of self-motivation, hard work, and success in businesses and trade, which many Muslims model, have given confidence to some too do the same.

One of the most important undercurrents of outvasions and cultural blending between Islam and America are the tensions that exist between modernist movements and more traditional groups. Just as Muslims have had to struggle with the growing influences of Westernization and Americanization, so too have most Americans. In attempting to pursue meaning even as maintaining, or adapting to, new ideas and behaviors, both traditionalists and modernists have sometimes clashed. Some believe this new era of economic and political globalization is beneficial while others disagree. The attempt to either accept or reject certain aspects of reason, science, politics, faith, law, medicines, music, art, technologies, including the ideals of liberty, justice, peace, secularism and even God, has led to numerous wars and retaliatory actions. But just as Americanization and global market economies are powerful forces, so too is Islam.

With over one billion Muslims in the world and millions living in the United States, decades of invasions and Islamphobia between America and predominantly Muslim societies are eroding. When President Obama and others speak of American values in reference to Sept. 11 and preemptive invasions, they must also recognize and understand outvasions, the values and principles of Islam and their impact on American society. The term Islam comes from the Arabic root s-l-m, which means "submission" or "peace." Because Muslims surrender themselves to the will of God, they believe they are at peace with themselves and others and with God. Like other faiths and belief systems, whether secular or sacred, the world can only be a peaceful and just place to live when human beings reciprocally respect the sentiments and ideas of others, allowing each other to freely, responsibly, and communally choose lifestyles and convictions without harm.

Perhaps someday the world will be rid of preemptive wars, forceful invasions, and tragedies like Sept. 11, only to be replaced with peaceful outvasions and a more peaceful cultural blending.

5th Estate Reaches Milestone : Independent Media Outstripping "Mainstream"

They said it could not be done, and we have done it   

The 5th Estate
10/14/2012

Not to bang our own drum, however The 5th Estate has just received notification that it has been included in the Internet "5 Star" category, entry into the top 1% of websites, with over 23 million monthly visitors.  Not bad for a recent start up with very little money to spend.


It has long been the ambition of the Editor to create a news organization completely dedicated to reporting the news, without relying on advertising or donations.  We have now accomplished this goal.

Advertising has long been the murderer of important news, and now we are in the process of murdering advertising as a detriment to timely and truthful reporting.

The 5th Estate costs approximately $450.00 U.S. per year to operate, including sophisticated security that allows us to be rated 100% safe for our readers.

We are in the process of moving our site from Google owned and operated enterprises and are boycotting You Tube, a result of their allowing the film "Innocence of Muslims" to be published in violation of their own hate-speech policies which resulted in the murder of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and four of his staff at the U.S. consulate, Libya, in addition to being directly responsible for many innocent civilian deaths worldwide.  It is and has been our position that freedom of speech stops at murder or loss of life due to publication of inflammatory works that violate the religious sensibilities of innocents by attacking the deities they worship.  Google and You Tube obviously believe it is O.K. to have people killed in the name of profit.  Their managing directors are personally responsible for these killings, and we will continue to pursue their prosecution, indefinitely.  We urge the spouse and family of Ambassador Stevens to sue the crap out of Google and You Tube and further demand that U.S. Attorney Eric Holder enforce the laws of the United States by indicting for murder those responsible for the continued publication of this killer pornography.

If by chance we are shut down by Google, we will be back up as soon as possible under a different, independent provider. 

We have successfully now backed up the site with several different independent providers.  Many thanks to our readers that assisted us in this endeavor.

The 5th Estate will continue to bring readers the most timely, actionable intelligence available affecting them worldwide.

Unfortunately, we are now being forced to accept only moderated comments for publication, as the assholes of the world have been taking advantage of our completely free comment policy.  We apologize to our legitimate readers for this however it is now unavoidable.

We will never be silenced, and thank our readers for their support over the last year and a half.
