Coins For Abbott : Indonesians Rally to Repay Tsunami Aid, Call Australian PM ‘Shylock’

Obama pimp elephant ears Abbot at his illiterate best; one wonders where in the hell 18 pounds of heroin came from as it was surely not grown and processed here in Indonesia

Indonesians have mobilized in record numbers to collect cash for the Australian PM, who touched a raw nerve by bringing up Australia’s $1 bn in tsunami relief aid to Jakarta while making a clemency appeal for convicted drug traffickers.


"How about another ton of that Chicago smack there,
blood?  It's all good!"
Images of Australian Prime Minister Tonny Abbott with red tape crossed over his mouth can be seen all over Indonesia, particularly in Jakarata. Loads of silver coins are covering banners spread on the ground – all part of the “repay” protest campaign that has spread like a bushfire across the island nation.

As part of the international relief effort for the 2004 earthquake and tsunami off the west coast of Sumatra that killed more than 100,000 people, Australia was quick to offer $1 billion in aid relief.



Speaking this week, Abbott hinted that it is time for the Asian nation to repay its debt by freeing two members of the famous Bali Nine, currently on a death row. The Bali Nine was a name given to a group of nine Australians who were arrested in Bali in 2005 Bali for planning to smuggle 8.3 kg (18 lb) of heroin, valued at over $3 million, from Indonesia to Australia.

“Let's not forget that a few years ago when Indonesia was struck by the Indian Ocean tsunami, Australia sent a billion dollars worth of assistance,” Abbot said. “I would say to the Indonesian people and the Indonesian government: we in Australia are always there to help you and we hope that you might reciprocate in this way at this time,” the PM stated, referring to death-row Australian nationals Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran.




The plea sparked a fierce backlash, with Indonesians comparing Tony Abbott to Shakespeare’s Shylock, the moneylender in The Merchant of Venice who demanded a pound of flesh if his loans weren’t paid back.

In order to rebuff the Australian PM, the nation of 250 million is now collecting pocket change to repay the“loan” Australia had once provided.

"Australians need a prime minister, not a Shylock and drug dealer's cousin," read a banner during Sunday’s protest. A Twitter campaign using the hashtags #KoinuntukAustralia, #coinforAustralia and #coinforAbbott has also generated a lot of steam.

While on the diplomatic front, the country’s leadership seemed satisfied by the explanation offered by the Australians on Friday, many ordinary Indonesians remain enraged.

During a protest on Sunday, thousands rallied to express their anger and continue to coin collection campaign.


The Pro-Indonesia Coalition, for example, organized a “Coin for Australia” movement during a car-free day at a roundabout near Hotel Indonesia.

“Let us not let our dignity being bought by Tony Abbot,” action coordinator Andi Sinulingga said at the event.

Rian, one of the event organizers, told the Sydney Morning Herald that it was a joy delivering the coins to the Australian embassy, saying that if every person donates one coin, which has a population of 250 million, Indonesia could pay back the “small amount of money donated by Australia.”


Idiot PM should thank Indonesian authorities for
keeping 18 pounds of smack off the streets of AU
“So, don't you ever mention something as tiny as $1 billion in relief for us,” Rian said. “We are a nation that refuses to be colonized, a nation that would like to tell other nations not to try to destroy this republic.”

Indonesia plans to execute 11 convicts on death row, including the drug convicts from Australia, Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, whose clemency pleas had been rejected by President Joko Widodo. Earlier this week, however, the vice president's office said that the execution of two Australian smugglers had been delayed by up to one month.


Indonesia executed six drug offenders in January, including five foreigners, prompting Brazil and the Netherlands to recall their ambassadors.

Tough Choice For U.S. In Afghanistan's Kandahar Province

KANDAHAR AIR FIELD, Afghanistan - 

A once bustling military hub at the heart of America's war in southern Afghanistan, Kandahar Air Field seemed destined to quietly shut down this year as part of a U.S. withdrawal that had already thinned its numbers.


NOW comes the time for accountability
But, now, there appears to be growing signs that fate might be postponed, if only for a bit, as the United States weighs slowing the pace of the drawdown from Afghanistan.

New U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter visited the sprawling complex on Sunday, but kept reporters guessing whether he thought it should remain operational longer - keeping a U.S. toe-hold in an important region of Afghanistan.

"My advice needs to go first to the president," Carter told reporters during his first trip since swearing-in on Tuesday.


MSM shills and frauds that LIED Americans into this war
must now be held responsible
The prospect of exiting Kandahar altogether has sounded alarms in Washington, where Republican lawmakers critical of President Barack Obama's withdrawal strategy note the region's importance to Taliban militants and the threat they pose. "Kandahar is just not a spot on the map. That's the spiritual home of the Taliban," Republican Senator Lindsey Graham declared at a Senate hearing this month. 


The Islamic State's rise in Iraq following the U.S. withdrawal is stoking anxiety about potential backsliding in Afghanistan as Obama pursues plans to cut the roughly 10,000 U.S. troops by nearly half this year and then slash them further to an embassy presence at the end of 2016. 




Kandahar Air Field is already a shadow of its former self, with just 2,600 coalition forces, down from a peak of 26,000. 

Still, it offers the United States important capabilities for advising Afghans and aiding counter-terrorism efforts.


The Obama and "mainstream media" criminals, one and all that are responsible for THIS will be brought to justice

The head of the Afghan National Army's 205th corps in Kandahar told Carter's delegation that America's contributions were vital, according to one U.S. official. Major General Abdullah Hamid said "I need you to be here," the official recounted, paraphrasing.

Carter praised U.S. forces in Kandahar during his visit.

"We've given so much to create the conditions here that you now see in front of you where the Afghan security forces stand a real shot at making success stick," Carter said.

"But it's still not done and it won't be done without what you are accomplishing here in Kandahar."

Former Ukrainian Prime Minister : U.S. Embassy Had Ukraine Coup Script

As with every Obama/CIA scandal, the truth continues to slowly bleed out  

TASS VIA STRATEGIC CULTURE FOUNDATION
02/22/2015

The script of a coup d’etat that occurred a year ago in Ukraine had not been written by oppositionists in Kiev but was in the US embassy, former Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said on the NTV television channel.


Spawn of Satan: Obama's CIA Director John Brennan
engineered and financed Kiev coup
"The script was not written in Kiev. It was in the US embassy," Azarov said. "And the key puppet masters were not on Maidan [Independence Square in Kiev - the symbol of Ukrainian protests]. These dummies did not really manage anything and did not influence anything."

He said the West was discontented with the policy of then-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich because Ukraine announced during his presidency that it "will not join NATO."


"That policy did not suit the United States and some partners in the EU," the ex-premier said. "They were constantly lecturing us. Active preparation started, which I did not pay proper attention to."

Besides, Azarov said, the West did not like the doubts of the then-Ukrainian government regarding the expediency of signing an association agreement with the European Union.


"We were speaking much in the country, saying that if we thoughtlessly sign the deal we will face huge economic losses, and that happened," the former prime minister said. "Huge pressure started on the part of the EU leaders. The sense of the pressure was that we should put aside doubts and sign the agreement."


"They needed a pretext to depose our power," he said. "We were told: ‘if you don’t sign the deal, other authorities will.’"

The pretext, Azarov said, was when a rally of Euro-integration supporters was dispersed by force on Maidan. He said it was a provocation planned beforehand.

"The rally was sluggish. The organizers realized that the crowd could not be prompted to act without victims," he said. He said cameras were brought to the rally.

"Cameras professionally showed beaten faces. They started crying that children had been beaten. Signals were distributed via social networks and TV: let’s gather. This allowed organizers to say that the regime is bloody. It’s like what happened in Libya, Egypt," Azarov said.


Speaking about Yanukovich’s talks with the opposition, the ex-premier said "[current premier Arseny] Yatsenyuk went to get instructions to the American embassy every day: what to say and what demands to forward."

As a result, an agreement between the Ukrainian president and opposition leaders was signed on peaceful resolution of the conflict, and a number of European countries posed as guarantors, but no one except for Yanukovich fulfilled it, he said.



The events that followed, Azarov said, can’t be described other than a coup. "He [Yanukovich] was the constitutional president. He did not say he renounced power. He was overthrown, and it should be admitted. A coup d’etat occurred, I am sure."


"The fact that Yanukovich did not let others kill him is very positive," he said.

Summing up the year since the coup in Ukraine, he said: 

"What has Ukraine got? Ruin, decline, loss of revenues of the population, war, killed citizens. What could be celebrated? We should go light a candle and pray for forgiveness."

Mall of America Heightens Security After Al-Shabab Video - Fox News, ABC Hype Bogus "Terror" Threat

ABC, Fox & Friends screech new "terror" warnings following ludicrous Al-Shamob "threat;" blowback from sales drop in malls will boomerang on MSM frauds, coming back to bite them in the ass as corporate masters take massive hit in pocketbooks and what a coincidence, coming right on the heels of budget cuts to DHS

One of the largest malls in the United States has heightened security after a video claiming to be posted online by a Somali militant group affiliated with al Qaeda called for attacks against the mall.


"Comin' to getcha, 'Mericuns… Ize' gwine see
you at de Mall!"
The Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, issued a statement Saturday, saying it had increased security in light of the video purportedly from al-Shabab, which took credit for the deadly attack at a Kenyan mall that killed at least 67 civilians in 2013.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson called the video the "new phase we’ve evolved in terms of the global terrorist threat and what we need to do in terms of counter-terrorism.."





"Groups like ISIL [ISIS], al-Shabab, AQAP (al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula) are now publicly calling for attacks either through the internet, through videos, through publications, which means that we need to respond militarily but we also have to have a whole government approach through law enforcement, homeland security and frankly countering violent extremism efforts here in the homeland in communities," Johnson said on ABC's "This Week." "We’re in a new phase now and I’m afraid that this most recent video release reflects that."

Matt Olsen, former director of the National Counterterrorism Center and current ABC News consultant, said despite al-Shabab not having a known ability to carry out such an attack in the U.S., the threat must still be considered.

"Over the past few years, al-Shabab has been degraded overall, but it is still active in Somalia and parts of East Africa," said Olsen. "al-Shabab has no known operational capacity in the U.S., and we haven't seen the group develop the ability to carry out a complex attack here. But this type of threat can't be discounted, and the FBI and local police departments will have to take appropriate steps in response."

The Department of Homeland Security and FBI issued a joint statement Sunday, saying the agencies were aware of the "reported call from al-Shabab for 'Westgate style' attacks against shopping centers around the world, to include in the United States."


"In recent months, the FBI and DHS have worked closely with our state and local public safety counterparts and members of the private sector, to include mall owners and operators, to prevent and mitigate these types of threats," the statement continued.


And this from Fox News Megyn Kelly:

Al-Qaeda-Linked Terrorist Group Releases Chilling Video Threatening the Mall of America

An al-Qaeda-linked terrorist group has released a video threatening attacks on the Mall of America, along with other malls in Canada and the United Kingdom.


"Hey it be cool… we jus goin' do a little rapin' on white Christian girls, blowin' shit up know what I'm sayin', den a little shoppin'…"

As reported by ABC, Department ofHomeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said “We’re in a new phase now and I’m afraid that this most recent video release reflects that.”


"We have to be on the lookout for terrorists from countries
like Somalia and ASIA…" - Steve Doocy
U.S. officials have long been concerned with the possibility of terrorist attacks on U.S. malls and other public venues. 

Following the attack on the Kenyan mall, those concerns were heightened. 



Now, there is a specific threat where many Americans spend their time shopping and enjoying themselves.


"OMG they're going to be here TOMORROW!"
But the motive for such a threat is still unclear – beyond an Islamist extremist group simply seeking to strike terror into the heart of its global enemy. 

Such threats may be used to provoke the enemy to spend more resources on security, and conversely, governments may indeed use terror threats to justify security measures that the public would otherwise not find acceptable.


Still, if bloodthirsty terrorist groups like al-Shabaab feel threatened enough to launch attacks on U.S. soil, that is also an indication that either they are feeling pressured by American counter-terrorism policy, or alternatively, sense an opportunity to make a cultural or political statement that can win it financial or popular support against competitors – like ISIS, for example.




One thing is clear: If a terror group like al-Shabaab conducted a terrorist attack on a mall in America, it would find itself in a position of all-out war against the United States – given it would likely be under another president.
