WAYNE MADSEN : U.S. State Department Pettier And More Vindictive Than During Cold War

Direct result of more and more pedophiles gravitating to positions of real power, as is in evidence at the U.S. embassy Jakarta

The U.S. State Department under Barack Obama has become more petty and vindictive diplomatically than at any time in recent history, including during the Cold War. The actions of U.S. diplomats in pressuring heads of state and government not to attend the May 9 Victory over Nazism commemoration in Moscow, coupled with the U.S. leaning on countries to recognize Kosovo while warning them not to recognize Abkhazia or South Ossetia, is unprecedented in its vitriol.


U.S.ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, a veteran understudy of George Soros, has followed her predecessor, Susan Rice, in using the United Nations to advance America’s untactful diplomacy. Power’s most recent stunt, ordering sound engineers to turn off the microphone of the representative of North Korea during a seminar on human rights sponsored by the U.S. Mission to the U.N., was carried out while U.S.-sponsored North Korean dissidents shouted from the sidelines. It was but one of many cases of diplomacy and proper etiquette being thrown to the wind by an increasingly annoying activist State Department.


Three Balkans leaders, President Tomislav Nikolic of Serbia, Macedonian President Georgi Ivanov, and Republic Srpska Bosnia-Herzegovina co-president Milorad Dodik ignored pressure brought to bear by U.S. ambassadors accredited to their nations and announced they would be present for the May 9 ceremony in Moscow. However, Croatia’s President, Kolinda Garbar-Kitarovic, a former NATO assistant secretary, announced she was skipping the Moscow event, citing the wishes of Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics that no European Union official should be present in Moscow. Former Croatian President Stjepan Mesic criticized the decision by the Croatian president. After Montenegro President Filip Vujanovic announced his boycott of the Moscow celebration, Montenegro opposition leader Miodrag Lekic said, “the Montenegrin government has again displayed subservient inferiority.”

Prior to the decision of the Croatian, Slovenian, and Montenegrin presidents not to go to Moscow, Czech President Milos Zeman announced that the U.S. ambassador to Prague, Andrew Schapiro, would no longer be welcome at the presidential castle. Schapiro criticized Zeman’s preliminary announcement that he would attend the Victory Day ceremony in Moscow. After Schapiro brought direct pressure on the Czech government, Zeman reversed himself and announced that he would be going to Moscow but would not attend the May 9 military parade as originally planned.

The diplomatic pressure brought by U.S. ambassadors on the heads of state of nations that bore the brunt of Nazi occupation not to go to Moscow placed the United States on the same side as neo-Nazis in the Baltics, central Europe, and the Balkans who wanted no part of celebrating Russia’s victory over fascism. The leaders of Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Bulgaria, Romania, and Poland appeared more comfortable in celebrating the exploits of the Waffen SS Divisions of their nations who fought the Red Army. Zeman has remained steadfast in not allowing Schapiro inside the Prague Castle, the residence of the Czech President. Zeman told a Czech newspaper, “The American ambassador acted in disagreement with the Vienna Convention on diplomatic relations, which strictly prohibits any foreign Ambassador from intervening in the internal affairs of the host country.”

Zeman also criticized Hashim Thaci, the deputy prime minister and foreign minister of Kosovo, as a war criminal and Zeman said that he, personally, does not recognize the independence of Kosovo. The former Serbian province that was guaranteed independence by the United States, the European Union, and NATO, has become a pet project of the State Department. Not even during the Cold War, when the U.S. paid bribes to various nations to maintain their recognition of the Republic of China on Taiwan as the legitimate government of all of China, has the United States used the degree of guile and threats that it has used to pressure countries to recognize Kosovo. Money was clearly paid to the President of the small African island nation of Sao Tome and Principe in 2012 when Prime Minister Emery Trovoada announced that Sao Tome and Principe was the 98th nation to recognize Kosovo. Sao Tome President Manuel Pinto da Costa said he was never consulted by the previous prime minister on recognition of Kosovo. Furthermore, Sao Tome’s new Prime Minister, Gabriel Costa, called the recognition of Kosovo an “anomaly” because the Sao Tome and Principe parliament had never approved the action. Nevertheless, the Kosovars and Americans insist that the recognition of Kosovo is legitimate even though it was rejected by the president, prime minister, and parliament of Sao Tome and Principe. Elements of the U.S. Africa Command have become increasingly active in the oil-rich Sao Tome and Principe region.

The reverse situation exists with respect to nations that want to recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. During the Cold War, the United States expressed disappointment, but little else, when its friends and allies recognized the People’s Republic of China, North Korea, East Germany, North Vietnam, and the socialist government of Cuba. The Americans did not threaten to withhold financial aid and other military assistance from nations that exercised a degree of independence from the U.S. diplomatic party line.

Today, however, the United States is poised to apply pressure on the smallest of nations that extend recognition to Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Working together with its FIVE EYES intelligence partners in Australia and New Zealand, diplomatic maneuvering by such island nations as Vanuatu, Tuvalu, Fiji, and the Solomon Islands to recognize Abkhazia and South Ossetia were stymied by the fact that the National Security Agency and its partners in Wellington and Canberra were eavesdropping on foreign ministries in Port-Vila, Funafuti, Suva, and Honiara and pounced on these island-states hard when there was impending recognition of the two small Caucasus republics. Nevertheless, Vanuatu’s foreign minister Sato Kilman met with Abkhazia’s foreign minister in Moscow in March 2015 and announced that previous diplomatic relations established between Sukhum and Port-Vila remained valid.

When Peru and the Dominican Republic appeared close to recognizing Abkhazia and South Ossetia, the vise grips of State Department sprang into action. Peruvian President Ollanta Humala reversed himself on recognition after becoming president of Peru. Lucrative trade deals with the United States convinced Humala that his support for the independence of the two states while he was opposition leader was no longer worth it. After Dominican Republic deputies Francisco Matos and Ramon Fernandez, as well as Deputy Prime Minister José Miguel Abreu visited Abkhazia between 2010 and 2011, the Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs Philip Gordon, the predecessor of the foul-mouthed Victoria Nuland, threatened the Dominican Republic with retaliatory action if it recognized Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Similar U.S. diplomatic and financial pressure was exerted on Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa and the government of the tiny Republic of San Marino.

In 1964, when France announced it was switching recognition of China from Taipei to Beijing, the U.S. State Department did not react by threatening Paris and President Charles de Gaulle. Instead, some State Department diplomats saw the move as useful considering France’s influence in Indochina and its opening of relations with China could serve as a diplomatic bridge in settling the burgeoning Indochina War. The then-Undersecretary of State for political affairs, W. Averell Harriman, and the number two at the U.S. embassy in Saigon, David Nes, did not threaten De Gaulle with American sanctions or other pressure but welcomed France’s new role as a more neutral diplomatic bargainer in Asia. Today, the spoiled brats in the State Department, including Nuland, Schapiro, and Power, would be demanding a freeze on De Gaulle’s foreign assets and a U.S. visa ban imposed on the French president. Diplomacy and tact are now as rare as hen’s teeth in the State Department.

Co - Pilot On Doomed Germanwings Jet, Reportedly Did A Practice Run Before Crash

"Mainstream media" in ongoing PC coverup continues to ignore the fact that Lubitz was a clinically diagnosed, depressed homosexual; criminal airlines hiring "pilots" off the street, crashes now budgeted for and merely an added cost of doing business

PARIS — 

A co-pilot who purposely crashed a Germanwings A320 plane into the French Alps appeared to have rehearsed sending the jet into a deadly descent on another flight just two hours earlier, investigators said Wednesday.


Suicidal deviant makes new case for banning
homosexuals from occupying positions of
responsibility where human lives are at stake
Authorities are still puzzling over why Andreas Lubitz, who had suffered from suicidal tendencies and depression in the past, locked the captain out of the cockpit on March 24 and sent Flight 9525 from Barcelona to Duesseldorf straight into a mountain, killing all 150 people on board.

The revelation about the earlier flight that day from Duesseldorf to Barcelona appeared to support the theory that the Germanwings crash was not only deliberate but premeditated. 

It came in a 30-page interim report from the French accident investigation agency BEA.



The development also raised questions about all flights where Lubitz was in the cockpit but BEA told The Associated Press that, due to practical considerations, it would not investigate those flights.

Lubitz seemed to be toying with the airplane's settings on the flight into Barcelona, programming it for a sharp descent multiple times in a 4 1/2-minute period while the pilot was out of the cockpit before resetting the controls, the report said. Unlike the later flight, he did not lock the pilot out of the cockpit.

On the flight to Barcelona, the plane's "selected altitude" changed repeatedly and several times was set as low as 100 feet (30 meters) above sea level. The report says Lubitz also put the engines on idle, which gives the plane the ability to quickly descend.


The crash site on the mountain

On the return flight to Germany, Lubitz also set a 100-foot altitude before the plane crashed into the Alps.

Aviation experts say it would be highly unusual for a pilot to repeatedly set a plane for such a low altitude for no apparent reason. But the report said Lubitz did so while air traffic controllers were asking him to bring the airplane down gradually from 35,000 feet to 21,000 feet for its descent to Barcelona.

A BEA chart showed the plane didn't actually descend sharply while Lubitz was repeatedly adjusting the settings, so the passengers and crew might not have noticed any change.




"The captain didn't realize at all, because the co-pilot's tests during the outgoing flight took place during a normal, preprogrammed descent and it never had an impact on the plane's trajectory," said Remi Jouty, the director of BEA.

Aviation experts said the BEA findings were clearly unusual.

Lubitz changed the setting in the "altitude select" window, although the airplane didn't move in response to the inputs, said aviation safety expert John Cox, president of Safety Operating Systems.

"It's clear that it's a very unusual act," Cox said. "I've never seen it done, and it is the same methodology he used to fly the airplane into the ground. Was he practicing? I think that certainly is a possibility."

"He was practicing to see how the airplane behaved," said John Goglia, an aviation safety expert and former member of the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board.

Markus Wahl, spokesman of German pilots' association, said Lubitz could only have done this when the other pilot was out of the cockpit.

"If there had been a pilot sitting next to him, of course he would have noticed that. Modern aircraft are built to be flown by two pilots, and one of the reasons for that is that one can watch the other," Wahl said.

Airlines typically download information from planes' flight data recorders for routine maintenance checks when the planes arrive at an airport where they plan to stay overnight.


Lufthansa and German Wings will never recover - and good
riddance as the skies will be that much safer
But that data isn't monitored constantly, Goglia said. Even if Germanwings had done so, it probably would have taken a while to notice a problem — or such odd readings might have dismissed such readings as an anomaly, he said. Many airlines have flight data monitoring programs to look for safety trends. "They don't analyze every recorder every day for every minute it recorded," Goglia said.


"The lag time is about 30 days to analyze it," he said. "There is no urgency to this. The data goes into a data collection point and at some point somebody says, 'Let's look at the approaches into Barcelona.'"

A BEA official said information from flight recorders is often erased, and is only systematically drawn upon in cases of air incidents or disasters.

"We're not going to verify whether he had tried to select 100 feet (altitudes) in other flights," BEA spokeswoman Martine del Bono told the AP. With the Barcelona-bound Germanwings flight data, "we have here the previous proof."

Germanwings "welcomed any new information that can help clarify what happened," but said it would not comment on the ongoing BEA investigation. It would also not comment on whether it was reviewing other flights involving Lubitz.

Lufthansa, the parent company of Germanwings, had no immediate comment.




The BEA report didn't analyze why Lubitz repeatedly tried to descend the plane going into Barcelona. But the agency said it was continuing to look at "systemic failings that may have led to this accident or similar events."

The BEA investigators said they are focusing on "the current balance between medical confidentiality and flight safety" — a reference to whether German rules on medical patient privacy may have prevented Lufthansa from being fully aware of Lubitz' mental health issues.

The agency is also looking at "compromises" made on security following the Sept. 11 attacks in the U.S., notably on cockpit door locking systems meant to protect pilots from terrorists. Since the Germanwings crash, several airlines have imposed rules requiring two people in the cockpit at all times.

It remains unclear why Lubitz would have wanted to crash the plane. German authorities say he researched suicide methods and cockpit door security online in the week before the crash.

Lowy reported from Washington. Angela Charlton in Paris, David Rising in Berlin, and Scott Mayerowitz in New York contributed to this report.

38 Million Homeless In "Worst" Forced Displacement In A Generation, Report Finds

Global elitists, eugenic supremacists, IMF advance genocidal plan for "culling" the world population of "useless eaters" in modern day international "Operation T4"    

HUFFINGTON POST
By Nick Visser
05/06/2015

At least 38 million people worldwide have been forced from their homes by violence or armed conflict, a new report on internally displaced persons has found. Of that number, 11 million were displaced in 2014 alone, spurred by ongoing violence in Syria, South Sudan and Iraq.


Nazi Euthanasia Programme in Occupied Poland
“These are the worst figures for forced displacement in a generation, signaling our complete failure to protect innocent civilians,” Jan Egeland, secretary general at the Norwegian Refugee Council, which publishes the yearly report, said in a statement.

Internally displaced persons, or IDPs, are migrants who do not meet the legal definition of refugees because they don’t cross an international border when fleeing violence or persecution. 


The report, which the NRC's Internal Displacement Monitoring Center has issued since 1998, focused on 60 countries and regions that have seen conflict and displacement in recent years.

Last year's shocking figure averages out to nearly 30,000 people forced from their homes every day by armed conflict or generalized violence.


"A million here, a million there, it all adds up!" - Bill Gates
The steady increase in IDPs over the past decade reflects "the changing nature of conflict worldwide," the report noted. Regions with the largest number of displaced persons have faced threats including the Islamic State group -- also known as ISIS -- in the Middle East, Boko Haram in Nigeria, criminal groups in Latin America and separatists in Ukraine.


Iraqi civilians suffered the largest displacement in terms of sheer numbers, with 2.2 million leaving their homes last year. The ongoing war in Syria, now in its fifth year, forced an additional 1.1 million from their homes. Around 7.6 million Syrians -- 35 percent of the country's population -- are now internally displaced.

"Today’s armed conflicts put civilians in harm’s way as never before," the report said. "The current humanitarian system, however, is not well set up to offer them the support they need."


Targeted for extermination: Syrian and Iraqi children

Internal conflict can have a "domino effect" on its neighbors, the report found. It highlighted the spread of unrest in the Middle East and central Africa that has forced many people to leave their homes. Thousands of people in northern Africa, fleeing poverty and war, have tried to cross the Mediterranean in rickety boats, hoping to find a better life in Europe. But the dangerous crossing has heavy human costs. More than 11,000 people had to be rescued during the first 17 days of April and at least 1,800 have died this year.

As the IDP population grows and disperses in a region, aid efforts grow less effective, the report noted. The current humanitarian system is ill-suited to deal with long-term displacement and efforts to repatriate and resettle displaced people are often overlooked, the authors concluded.


2.2 million Iraqis displace by the Bush/Cheney/Obama illegal oil wars

“38 million human beings are suffering -- often in horrendous conditions where they have no hope and no future," Egeland said. "Unless we challenge ourselves to change our approach, the shockwaves of these conflicts will continue to haunt us for decades to come."

Hollande Admits Arming Syrian Rebels In Breach Of Embargo In Book

Which makes the fruitcake Frog a CIA/Obama dupe, mass-murderer and eligible for a seat a the upcoming war crimes trials  

RT
05/06/2015

The French president has admitted delivering weapons to the Syrian rebels during a period of EU embargo, a new book about to be published in France reveals.


The deliveries took place in 2012, before the embargo was canceled in May 2013, according to François Hollande's last year interview with journalist and writer Xavier Panon. "We began when we were certain they would end up in the right hands. For the lethal weapons it was our services who delivered them," Hollande told the writer, AFP reports. Panon used the interview in his book "In the Corridors of French Diplomacy" which comes out in France this month. According to Hollande, as cited by Panon, France delivered cannons, machine guns, rocket launchers and anti-tank missiles to the forces fighting Bashar Al-Assad in the protracted Syrian civil war. 


Earlier, Hollande maintained France only sent weapons to Syria after the embargo was lifted.

In an interview with France 2 TV, President Assad accused France of supporting the same terrorists who carried out attacks in Paris: "Is it democratic to send weapons to terrorists and to support them? So I have the right to support the terrorists who attacked Charlie Hebdo, for example?" he added.

Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov has accused the West of covertly backing extremists to topple the Syrian regime. "Russia condemns the use of extremist groups in efforts to change the regime," he said at a November news conference.


Obama and his lapdog Hollande will be sitting side by side at the Hague

Xavier Panon's "In the Corridors of French Diplomacy" also describes the French government's attack plans for Syria. These included airstrikes against the Syrian regime for its alleged use of chemical weapons in August 2013. One of the targets was a Syrian army intelligence headquarters the French deemed responsible for chemical weapons. These plans never went forward due to lack of support from Washington.

A French political adviser reportedly told Panon that the strikes had two objectives: to change the political order in Syria, and to destabilize Russia and pressure it to change its stance on the Syrian conflict.


Holland's victims

The civil war in Syria, now in its fifth year, has claimed over 220,000 lives and displaced millions of Syrians to neighboring countries. Apart from the continuing conflict between the rebels and Bashar Assad's forces, several Islamist groups have used the chaos to try and gain ground in Syria. The Islamic State, the Free Syrian Army and the Islamic Front are in constant skirmishes with the government forces and each other over control of strategic locations.
