NATO Accused Of Killing Afghan Civilians

This as UN hypocrites decry deaths of Syrian civilians

By Amir Shah and Nahal Toosi
KABUL, Afghanistan -

Afghan officials accused NATO of killing civilians in an airstrike that left at least 10 dead in the country's remote east, while the Taliban on Sunday staged a car bomb and gun attack outside an Afghan intelligence office, killing four soldiers and wounding more than 80 people.

Meanwhile, the Afghan government reacted angrily to a comment by an American envoy who said Afghanistan is already experiencing "a civil war."

The airstrike and Taliban attack underscored the chronic insecurity in Afghanistan as U.S.-led foreign forces reduce their presence and hand over more responsibilities to Afghan troops. The car bombing occurred in Maidan Shahr, a city in eastern Wardak province just 40 kilometers (25 miles) from Kabul.

Attaullah Khogyani, a spokesman for the provincial governor, said the explosion occurred around 1 p.m. and that many of the wounded were Afghan government employees working in nearby offices. Soldiers guarding the compound managed to kill the militants after the explosion, he said. He said four soldiers and five attackers died, in addition to the car bomber.

NATO now nothing more than a U.S. financed merc army
Hazrat Janan, a member of the Wardak provincial council, said the explosion wounded more than 80 people and was powerful enough to shatter windows across a wide stretch of the city.

Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attack.

Meanwhile, conflicting reports emerged about the airstrike in the Watapur district of Kunar, a province that lies along the border with Pakistan. The territory is dangerous and difficult to reach. Many Arab and other foreign insurgents are believed to operate there alongside the Afghan Taliban. Some are suspected to have links to al-Qaida.

Kunar province police chief Abdul Habib Sayed Khaili said the airstrike hit a pickup truck carrying women and children in Qoro village soon after three Arab and three Afghan militants boarded it Saturday evening. He said some residents called it a drone strike, which would not be unusual in that area.

NATO has racked up quite a body count of innocents in Afghanistan alone
The police official put the total dead at 15, saying four were women, four were children and one was the civilian driver. But Afghan President Hamid Karzai's office later put the death toll at 16, saying only that women and children were among the victims.

As he has in the past, Karzai strongly condemned the killing of civilians and offered condolences to their families.

NATO spokeswoman 1st Lt. AnnMarie Annicelli said the military alliance carried out a "precision strike" that killed 10 "enemy forces," but that it had received no reports of any civilians dying. Annicelli would not comment on whether a drone was used, but said NATO was still investigating the matter.

"We take all allegations of civilian casualties seriously," NATO said in a statement.

Even as U.S.-led foreign forces draw down their presence in Afghanistan, with a full exit expected by the end of 2014, the air support they provide Afghan troops in many regions is still a crucial part of operations against the Taliban, the resurgent militant movement that wants to topple the U.S.-backed Afghan government.

Past strikes that killed civilians have infuriated Afghans. Karzai even banned Afghan troops from requesting NATO airstrikes during operations in residential areas, though it's unclear how often that ban is enforced.

NATO "mainstream media" propagandists past and present will be tried for war crimes, along with the likes of Carney and his predecessor Dana Perino 
Tensions also arose Sunday between the U.S. and Afghan governments over a remark by the U.S. special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan.

In a recent interview with Voice of America's Deewa news service, James Dobbins said, "Well, there already is, of course, a civil war in Afghanistan." Karzai spokesman Aimal Faizi issued a rebuke, saying that if Dobbins' assertion was true, then the U.S. had been an actor in a civil war instead of fighting a battle against terrorism.

In what it called a "policy clarification" posted on its website, the U.S. Embassy in Kabul said the remarks "were not intended to reflect all of the sources of conflict in Afghanistan and should be clarified as in the context of the need for Afghans to speak to Afghans in order to have a lasting peace."

Three More Die Of MERS Coronavirus In Saudi Arabia : Health Ministry

Despite the efforts of virus weaponizers Yoshihiro Kawaoka and Ron Fouchier to confuse the origins of this engineered evil by publication of the process, the viral DNA lines will lead straight back to them and to the universities of Kobe, Japan and Wisconsin; Ribavirin confirmed for treatment


Saudi Arabia’s Health Ministry says three more people have died of the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in the country. 
Kawaoka and Fouchier
The ministry said on Sunday that the recent deaths have placed the total number of those to die from the illness in Saudi Arabia at 47.

According to the ministry’s website, a 74-year-old man and a 56-year-old female health sector worker have died in the western city of Medina due to the virus.

A third person, a 53-year-old, also died in the capital, Riyadh.

The health ministry also announced five new cases of infection with the coronavirus. A 3-year-old girl and an 18-year-old man are among the disease's new victims. 
Engineered "novel" MERS coronavirus
On September 7, the Saudi ministry announced that two women, a 41-year-old woman, who worked in the health sector in the capital Riyadh and a 79-year-old from Hafr al-Baten in the Eastern Province, have died after contracting the disease.

Saudi authorities say that so far, 96 people have been infected in the kingdom.

MERS is a cousin of SARS. The virus first emerged in the Middle East, and was discovered in September 2012 in a Qatari man who had traveled to Saudi Arabia.

In addition to Saudi Arabia, MERS has been reported in the Persian Gulf countries, France, Germany, Italy, Tunisia and Britain.

Syria Civil War : John Kerry And Arab Leaders Agree ‘Global Red Line Was Crossed’

Panicking Arab despot regimes go for broke backing Obama criminals in hopes of salvaging their U.S. backed and sponsored criminal empires

By Adam Withnall

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has emerged from talks with Arab leaders to say that they all agreed an “international, global red line” was crossed when Syrian President Bashar al-Assad allegedly targeted his own people in a chemical weapons attack.

Obama criminals willing to spark WWIII in order to cover for continuing Snowden revelations which will bring them down
Speaking at a news conference after meeting ministers from countries including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, Mr Kerry said a number had signed up to a G20 statement calling for a “strong response” to the atrocities of 21 August in Damascus.

The US is hoping to build international support for a “targeted” missile strike against Syrian military targets, ahead of the matter going to a vote in the Senate this week.

And the support of the Arab nations could be a vital boost to President Obama’s case for intervention in the Middle East.

Standing alongside his Qatari counterpart Khaled al-Attiya, Mr Kerry said: “All of us agreed - not one dissenter - that Assad's deplorable use of chemical weapons, which we know killed hundreds of innocent people ... this crosses an international, global red line.”

Earlier Mr Kerry had said that the world must not stand by as “silent spectators to slaughter” in Syria.

"I'm not going to tell you again:"
In a press conference in Paris, Mr Kerry likened avoiding military action to the policy of appeasement in the build-up to the Second World War, saying “this is our Munich moment”.

Over the course of his trans-Atlantic visit so far, European foreign ministers have been keen to offer their support for a “clear and strong response” if the US will wait for the UN to return a report, a State Department official said.

A statement from the EU's foreign policy chief, Baroness Ashton, described the alleged chemical weapons attack on 21 August in Damascus as a “blatant violation of international law, a war crime and a crime against humanity”.

Information from a wide variety of sources confirmed the chemical attack, according to the statement, and “seems to indicate strong evidence that the Syrian regime is responsible” as it is the only party “that possesses chemical weapons agents and the means of their delivery in a sufficient quantity”.

Saudi, Jordan, Kuwait, Turkey dictators know they will be overrun in popular uprisings without permanent U.S. protection
Addressing reporters alongside the French foreign minister Laurent Fabius, Mr Kerry said he and President Barack Obama were “exceedingly grateful to have France by our side” in pushing for a “limited” military strike.

“We in the United States know and our French partners know that this is not the time to be silent spectators to slaughter,” he said. “This is not the time to send a message where doing nothing is far more risky than responding.”

“This is not the time to allow a dictator unfettered use of some of the heinous weapons on earth.”

He called for a “clear and effective response”, saying: “What we are talking about here is a limited military action, one that is aimed squarely at degrading Assad’s ability to use chemical weapons and deterring him from using them again.”

Mr Kerry’s next stop after Paris is London, where on Monday he will be holding talks with President Mahmoud Abbas and UK foreign secretary William Hague before returning to Washington.

Dead children from Obama's CIA/FSA gas attack:  As if Assad would use gas while UN chemical weapons inspectors are in Syria
Speaking on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show this morning, Mr Hague said: “I do believe very strongly that the world must stand up to the use of chemical weapons, and the risks of not doing so are in my view greater than the risks of doing so.

“This issue is about chemical weapons, and it is a bigger issue than Syria… [but] we are not a government that is gung ho about military action.”

He said the talks would cover all the issues around Syria, and particularly what can be done to alleviate the humanitarian crisis which has stemmed from the conflict.

YOICHI SHIMATSU : Boycott The Radioactive 2020 Olympics Of Death

Government elites could care less about the health and safety of the athletes and spectators, the only thing that matters is the perpetuation of their criminal "empires" - Olympic athlete radiation exposure should do wonders for their careers:  Japanese government now floating "idea" of dumping radioactive waste water into the Pacific, further poisoning the world

By Yoichi Shimatsu

It does not take 20/20 vision to realize that the corrupt Japanese government has bribed the International Olympic Committee to make the suicidal decision to send young athletes into the radioactive fallout from Fukushima. The decision in Buenos Aires to award Tokyo as host city of the 2020 Games did not arise from a lack of choices between Istanbul and Madrid, but was a knowing decision that is incomprehensible except for the factor of bribery. To risk the lives of young people and their supporters is more than an ethical lapse, it is a crime of manslaughter to the cruelest degree.

The bidding for the Games were rigged from the start by a quintet of disreputable character and dubious association, including former capital governor Shintaro Ishihara, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Education Minister Hakubun Shimomura and Japan Olympic Chairman Tsunekazu Takeda, scion and successor to a heinous war criminal. Their industrial partner, is Fujio Cho, honorary chairman of Toyota Motor Company and chief of the Japan Sports Association

During their promotion campaign for the Games of Death, these five Japanese officials spun outright lies claiming that there are zero leaks of radioactive water from the Fukushima nuclear plant.

In a letter to delegates from national committees, JOC chief Takeda falsely claimed: “The radiation level in Tokyo is the same as London, New York and Paris, like the major cities in the world. It’s absolutely safe.” Excuse me, Your Excellency, the SPEEDI radiation monitoring system shows the Oku-Tama watershed, which is Tokyo’s drinking water source, is massively contaminated.

Japan's Abe:  "Everything is under control.... REALLY!"
At this grandstand speech in the Argentine capital, Abe boldly stated a big lie: "Let me assure you the situation is under control. It has never done and will never do any damage to Tokyo." Sir, with your permission, may we point out that Japan’s government had to revise its own radiation safety limit for food because nearly all foodstuffs produced in Japan are contaminated? Can it also be added that the every effort of the Japanese government to contain the radiation leaks over the past 30 months has failed? 
There is only one possible explanation for the unthinking support for Tokyo of the IOC majority and that is bribery, as was proven in earlier Olympic bids of Sydney and Salt Lake City. The total sum spent on wining and dining by the related Japanese organizations, or of briefcases passed under the table, has never been disclosed to the media or the public. It is well-known in Japan that secret slush funds are routinely used for winning such big-ticket events. Japan is again corrupting the international community with its usual checkbook diplomacy. In exchange, Olympic Committee delegates agreed to ignore the uncontrollable releases of radiation into the the Pacific Ocean, the jet stream and the clouds that drift over Tokyo.

If the decision to hold Games in Tokyo is not reversed, then the world will watch their finest young athletes marching into the ovens of Fukushima. If that is unacceptable to parents and coaches, then there is no alternative except to boycott the 2020 Games of Death, and that morality-based action should include refusing to purchases the products or services of every corporate sponsor, starting with Toyota Motors.

Upper Crust Criminals

This gang of five has nothing to do with sports prowess. None is an athlete like distance champion Sebastian Coe, who headed the London games. Japanese sports are controlled by a marriage of convenience between the aristocracy, big business and the underworld. The same alliance that operates the nation’s horse races, and its attendant gambling, is built on the same social contract between privilege and crime, and we are speaking here of war crimes.

Out of work because of Fukushima radiation poisoned fish, Japanese fishermen don't agree with Abe
Aristocracy in Japan was discredited in the aftermath of World War II by their vainglorious pursuit of military rank and utter disregard for victims. As a descendant of undiluted lineage from the powerful fief lord who founded the Imperial Navy, I have been repeatedly invited to a gathering of the “no-title” club, a social set that craves privilege, disdains democracy and is rife with gossip about incestuous affairs.

Finally conceding to attend a soiree at a posh bar, I was met by high-born ladies who swooned over rumors of my occasional horse-riding, but they froze when learning that my pastime was inspired by Hollywood’s singing cowboys like Roy Rogers and Gene Autry rather than by ancestors charging on steeds to lop off the heads of enemies. Blood thirst, on a level of a vampire coven, is the key to understanding the aristocratic mind. Cowboys are as low as one can go in terms of wages, rank and working conditions but they do have an element of freedom, and that is the vast difference between the riding myths in America and Japan.

Fukushima radioactive fallout now spans the world
I declined any further plunge into these foul depths after discovering the drinks bill was picked up by the Unification Church, popularly known as the Moonies. The upper echelon of those die-hard messianic fanatics believe themselves to be a global master race of horse riders destined to rule over, that is, ride roughshod, over the peasant. If these fantasies were not so dangerous in the real world, this babble would be just wishful thinking from incompetent fools.

Shadow of the Dark Ages

The European nobility, too, is tainted by their adulation of the Dark Ages and tales of knighthood. The Moonies certainly have their clutches on these brain-addled morally bankrupt socialites of the West. The Unification Church is a major supporter of equestrian sports in the Olympics, a long outdated custom even as Cervantes ridicule these feudal ideals in “Don Quixote” in the 17th century. North and South Americans have the good sense not to demand rodeos or gaucho contests in the global games.

Japanese government spokesman, liar extraordinaire Yukio Edano largely responsible for TEPCO cover-up 
The modern Olympics are dominated openly and secretly by the fraternity of noblemen, who provide camouflage for their financiers from organized crime and the arms industry. The three dark forces, who exalt the physical over the intellect and morality, are bound by a common passion for weaponry, that is, for slaughter and carnage. Since most are puny of body, having never put in a hard day’s work, these natural-born conquerors require accessories like war steeds or helicopter gunships, as in the case of Prince Harry. In real man-to-man combat, these spoiled rascals have no chance against a lumberjack or poor-boy boxer from the other side of town.

Contamination and Filth

A quick look at each of these Olympic fixers and Fukushima deniers is order, beginning with former Tokyo Governor Shintaro Ishihara. Long before the wheeling and dealing in Buenos Aires, Tokyo’s bid was tarnished by media allegations that Shintaro Ishihara has siphoned off Olympic-bid donations to finance his boat trips to the disputed Senkaku-Diaoyu islands for planned construction of helipads and a dock for warships. His deep pockets, filled by notorious elements in the Ginza nightlife district (who also provide the manpower for his foreign-policy adventurism) has meant immunity from Tokyo prosecutors, police and fellow politicians. Donations for Olympic, in short, were used by the far right to foment yet another war of aggression by Japan against China.

Four Fukushima reactors still in the process of melting down, spewing radiation and yet "Everything is under control"
Second in line is Shinzo Abe, the prime minister who aims to rearm Japan with conventional weapons and nuclear warheads for coming global conflicts and is now itching to get Japanese soldiers into the Syrian intervention. Closely associated with the Unification Church and the Aum Shinrikyo arms-trafficking sect, Abe is the grandson of former Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi, who held the finance portfolio for the wartime puppet state of Manchukuo. Kishi financed the creation of Japan’s atomic bomb at Konan (Hungnam) island, in colonial Korea, leaving a legacy to his grandson, who is an avid proponent of Japan’s nuclear program.

Third on the list is Hakubun Shimomura, a political retainer of Abe who heads Japan’s education authority. His message to girls and women in school and on sports squads is succinct: "It is true that there were (wartime) comfort women. I believe some parents may have sold their daughters. But it does not mean the Japanese army was involved.” Ever wonder what someone like Li Na or Serena Williams has to say about that?

Radioactive dandelions inside Fukushima "exclusion Zone"
Fourth comes Fujio Cho of Toyota Motors, whose many titles include Knight of the British Empire, France’s Legion d’Honneur and Japan’s Order of the Rising Sun.

(“Honorary” best describes a man with no real job who manages to rise mysteriously up the ranks of industry, which has the burden of supporting the messy leftovers of hazy upper-crust trysts. To understand this sub-class of parasites, one needs to realize that Tokyo is a city of mistresses, and up to a dozen years ago fashionable Omotesando was the place to park a well-dressed kept woman.)

Last and not least, there is Tsunekaza Takeda, chairman of the Japan Olympic Committee. Among the world’s most hide-bound political systems, Japan is capable of transforming its national Olympic Committee into a dynastic fiefdom of a militarist branch of the Imperial Family – undoubtedly, to the discomfort of its current benign and peace-minded Emperor. Although now a member of the “non-titled” aristocracy, Tsunekazu Takeda inherited the Japan Olympic Committee chairmanship from his father, who was a member of a secondary branch of the Royals and a wartime military officer.

Shiro Ishii, commander of Unit 731
During the Sino-Japanese War, his father Prince Takeda supervised the Army’s infamous biowarfare group, Unit 731 when bubonic plague was spread by warplanes over Chinese cities and prisoners were subjected to nerve gas experiments. The “sporting prince” road in the equestrian events at the Berlin Olympics and was a lifelong enthusiast of horse-racing, which in Japan is dominated by gambling syndicates. Biowarfare against entire cities and the Olympics, how can anyone bridge that moral gap?

Handmaiden to Fascism

The Games are supposed to be based on individual merit, regardless of the contestant’s origin. It is breathtaking to see a girl or boy appearing out of nowhere and against all odds to win a medal. That represents the very spirit of the modern and ancient games: that one is judged on what he or she achieves, not on where one might be from. If sports are going to be fair, there can be no entitlements or privileges. The starting line is the same for all comers.

Everything is just ducky in Japan these days so don't mind those radiation checks on your kids after attending the Olympics - it's just a "precaution," and if your country of origin won't let you back in because your rad readings are off the charts, why, you can just go back to sunny Japan - where you can simply smile to beat radiation effects

The Olympic movement is in reality corrupted, being as much an adjunct of aristocracy as aristocrats are to fascism. Games that by their high cost require conditions of social privilege, like equestrian events, should be eliminated from the roster. Other than the ancient martial sports from a barbaric era, contests that exalt the arms industry such as marksmanship should also be nixed. As the last sporting arena that claims to have some remaining barriers to commercialism, the Olympics needs to restore the sanctity of physical endeavor, if not as a sacrifice to the Hellenic pantheon then to the highest ideals of a global civilization.

Inviting the athletes of the future, their families and spectators to a radiation-drenched territory, where a corrupt government has failed miserably to contain an ongoing disaster, is a criminal action tantamount to manslaughter and even premeditated murder. The Olympic Committee has betrayed the public trust, and should be completely purged and reorganized or the Games terminated.

Meanwhile, the only recourse for athletes, parents, friends and supporters is to boycott the radioactive 2020 Olympics of Death and its corporate sponsors.
