অবৈধ আয় হারাবে বলে পুলিশ র‍্যাবে আসতে চায় না: বারী

https://i2.wp.com/www.bdreport24.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/wikileaksEditB201012041557132.jpg

আড়াই লাখ মার্কিন তারবার্তা ফাঁস করেছে উইকিলিকস। মার্কিন কূটনীতিকদের ভাষ্যে এসব তারবার্তায় বেরিয়ে এসেছে বাংলাদেশের রাজনীতি ও ক্ষমতার অন্দরমহলও

সামরিক গোয়েন্দা সংস্থা ডিজিএফআইয়ের সাবেক কর্মকর্তা ব্রিগেডিয়ার জেনারেল চৌধুরী ফজলুল বারী বলেছিলেন, ঘুষসহ অন্যান্য আয়ের সুযোগ কমে যাবে বলে পুলিশ থেকে র‍্যাব বাহিনীতে আসার আগ্রহ কম।

ব্রিগেডিয়ার জেনারেল চৌধুরী ফজলুল বারী

২০০৬ সালে ডিজিএফআইএর কাউন্টার ইন্টেলিজেন্স ব্যুরোর পরিচালক হিসেবে যুক্তরাষ্ট্রে এক সম্মেলনে যোগদানের সময় মার্কিন এক কর্মকর্তাকে এ কথা বলেছিলেন ব্রিগেডিয়ার বারী। উইকিলিকসের ফাঁস করা মার্কিন দূতাবাসের কূটনৈতিক তারবার্তায় এ কথা বলা হয়েছে। ফাঁস হওয়া ওই তারবার্তার ভাষ্য অনুযায়ী, ২০০৬ সালের এপ্রিলে হাওয়াইতে অনুষ্ঠিত পিএএসওসি সম্মেলন চলার সময় মূল অনুষ্ঠানের বাইরে সম্মেলনে অংশগ্রহণকারী দূতাবাস কর্মকর্তার সঙ্গে বারীর খোলামেলা কথাবার্তা হয়। বারী এ সময় র‍্যাব গঠনের সময় থেকে এ বাহিনীর বিষয়ে তাঁর বিভিন্ন অভিজ্ঞতা ও জঙ্গিগোষ্ঠী জেএমবির তৎপরতা নিয়ে কথা বলেন। প্রসঙ্গত, ব্রিগেডিয়ার জেনারেল বারী একসময় র‍্যাপিড অ্যাকশন ব্যাটালিয়নের (র‍্যাব) উপপ্রধান ছিলেন।

তারবার্তার তথ্যমতে, মার্কিন দূতাবাসের কর্মকর্তার সঙ্গে আলোচনায় বারী উল্লেখ করেন, র‍্যাব গঠনের প্রাথমিক পরিকল্পনার সময় তিনিও উপস্থিত ছিলেন। প্রাথমিক পরিকল্পনা ছিল র‍্যাব সামরিক বাহিনী থেকে ৪৪ শতাংশ, পুলিশ বাহিনী থেকে ৪৪ শতাংশ ও বাংলাদেশ রাইফেলস (বিডিআর) থেকে ১২ শতাংশ জনবল নেওয়া হবে। কিন্তু পুলিশ বাহিনীতে এই কোটা পূরণে অনীহা ছিল। কারণ, ঘুষ ও অন্যান্য অবৈধ কার্যকলাপের মাধ্যমে তারা ‘বাইরে থেকে আরও বেশি অর্থ আয় করে’। বারী দাবি করেন, জ্যেষ্ঠ পুলিশ কর্মকর্তারা তাঁদের দপ্তরে বসে থাকতেই বেশি আগ্রহী।

র‍্যাপিড অ্যাকশন ব্যাটালিয়নের (র‍্যাব)

বারী বলেন, পুলিশ বাহিনী একটি ‘বিশাল পিরামিড স্কিমের’ মতো কাজ করে, যাতে মাঠপর্যায়ের কর্মীরা অবৈধভাবে উপার্জিত অর্থ ঊর্ধ্বতন পর্যায়ে পৌঁছে দেন। জেএমবির প্রধান শায়খ আবদুর রহমানকে গ্রেপ্তার করতে পুলিশের ব্যর্থ হওয়ার একটি কারণ দুর্নীতি বলে মন্তব্য করেন তিনি। বারী অভিযোগ করেন, র‍্যাবে অনেক সময় পুলিশের এমন জনবল দেওয়া হয়, যাঁদের সঠিকভাবে গুলি চালানোর মতো মৌলিক দক্ষতাও নেই। বিশেষ অভিযানের জন্য তাঁদের নেই কোনো প্রশিক্ষণ। অনেকে শারীরিকভাবেও উপযুক্ত নন।

বাংলাদেশ পুলিশ

তারবার্তায় আরও বলা হয়, এর আগে ২০০৫ সালের জুন মাসে মার্কিন দূতাবাসের কর্মকর্তাদের সঙ্গে আলোচনায় বারী বলেছিলেন, ক্রসফায়ার ‘দরকারি এবং স্বল্প মেয়াদে উপযোগী এক কৌশল’। তারবার্তায় বলা হয়, বারী জানান, তিনি ডিজিএফআইয়ের কর্মকর্তা হিসেবে জেএমবির নেতা শায়খ আবদুর রহমানকে জিজ্ঞাসাবাদের সময় অনেকবার উপস্থিত ছিলেন। তিনি জেএমবি প্রসঙ্গে মার্কিন কর্মকর্তাকে বলেন, এর নেতা শায়খ আবদুর রহমান পাকিস্তানের গোয়েন্দা সংস্থা আইএসআইয়ের কাছে বিস্ফোরক তৈরি এবং একে ৪৭ রাইফেল চালনার প্রশিক্ষণ নেন। আইএসআই শায়খ রহমানকে কাশ্মীরে ব্যবহার করতে চেয়েছিল।

https://i2.wp.com/samakal.com.bd/admin/news_images/676/image_676_152160.jpg

বারী জানান, জিজ্ঞাসাবাদে শায়খ রহমান ১৭ আগস্ট দেশব্যাপী বোমা হামলা প্রসঙ্গে বলেন, ‘পটকাবাজির বিরুদ্ধে কোনো আইন নেই। এসব বোমার ভেতরে কোনো স্প্লিন্টার ছিল না, কীভাবে আমার বিরুদ্ধে অভিযোগ আনবেন?’ তারবার্তায় বলা হয়, শায়খ রহমানের এই যুক্তিতে সহানুভূতি প্রকাশ করে বারী মার্কিন কর্মকর্তাকে বলেন, বিস্ফোরণের আঘাতে নয়, ওই দিন আতঙ্কিত হয়ে দুজন নিহত হয়।

বারী আরও বলেন, দেশব্যাপী বোমা হামলার ঘটনায় ৭০ জনকে গ্রেপ্তার করা হলে জেএমবির নেতা-কর্মীরা ক্ষুব্ধ হয়। এর জবাব দেওয়ার জন্য প্রচণ্ড চাপ আসে শায়খ রহমানের ওপর। এর পরিপ্রেক্ষিতেই অক্টোবরে আদালতে হামলা চালায় জেএমবি।

পুলিশের বিষয়ে ব্রিগেডিয়ার বারীর কথিত এই অভিযোগের ব্যাপারে গতকাল পুলিশের মহাপরিদর্শক (আইজি) হাসান মাহমুদ খন্দকারের বক্তব্য জানতে চাওয়া হলে তিনি কোনো মন্তব্য করতে অস্বীকৃতি জানান।

Pakistan and “The Haqqani Network” : The Latest Orchestrated Threat to America and The End of History

by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts | Global Research,

Have you ever before heard of the Haqqanis? I didn’t think so. Like Al Qaeda, about which no one had ever heard prior to 9/11, the “Haqqani Network” has popped up in time of need to justify America’s next war–Pakistan.

President Obama’s claim that he had Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden exterminated deflated the threat from that long-serving bogyman. A terror organization that left its leader, unarmed and undefended, a sitting duck for assassination no longer seemed formidable. Time for a new, more threatening, bogyman, the pursuit of which will keep the “war on terror” going.

Now America’s “worst enemy” is the Haqqanis. Moreover, unlike Al Qaeda, which was never tied to a country, the Haqqani Network, according to Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, is a “veritable arm” of the Pakistani government’s intelligence service, ISI. Washington claims that the ISI ordered its Haqqani Network to attack the US Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan, on September 13 along with the US military base in Wadak province.

Washington claims that the ISI ordered its Haqqani Network to attack the US Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan.

https://i0.wp.com/iprd.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/US-war-state1.jpg

Senator Lindsey Graham, a member of the Armed Services committee and one of the main Republican warmongers, declared that “all options are on the table” and gave the Pentagon his assurance that in Congress there was broad bipartisan support for a US military attack on Pakistan.

As Washington has been killing large numbers of Pakistani civilians with drones and has forced the Pakistani army to hunt for Al Qaeda throughout most of Pakistan, producing tens of thousands or more of dislocated Pakistanis in the process, Sen. Graham must have something larger in mind.

The Pakistani government thinks so, too. The Pakistani prime minister,Yousuf Raza Gilani, called his foreign minister home from talks in Washington and ordered an emergency meeting of the government to assess the prospect of an American invasion.

 Meanwhile, Washington is rounding up additional reasons to add to the new threat from the Haqqanis to justify making war on Pakistan: Pakistan has nuclear weapons and is unstable and the nukes could fall into the wrong hands; the US can’t win in Afghanistan until it has eliminated sanctuaries in Pakistan; blah-blah.

Washington has been trying to bully Pakistan into launching a military operation against its own people in North Waziristan. Pakistan has good reasons for resisting this demand. Washington’s use of the new “Haqqani threat” as an invasion excuse could be Washington’s way of overcoming Pakistan’s resistance to attacking its North Waziristan province, or it could be, as some Pakistani political leaders say, and the Pakistani government fears, a “drama” created by Washington to justify a military assault on yet another Muslim country.

Over the years of its servitude as an American puppet, the Pakistan government has brought this on itself. Pakistanis let the US purchase the Pakistan government, train and equip its military, and establish CIA interface with Pakistani intelligence. A government so dependent on Washington could say little when Washington began violating its sovereignty, sending in drones and special forces teams to kill alleged Al Qaeda, but usually women, children, and farmers. Unable to subdue after a decade a small number of Taliban fighters in Afghanistan, Washington has placed the blame for its military failure on Pakistan, just as Washington blamed the long drawn-out war on the Iraqi people on Iran’s alleged support for the Iraqi resistance to American occupation.

Some knowledgeable analysts’ about whom you will never hear in the “mainstream media,” say that the US military/security complex and their neoconservative whores are orchestrating World War III before Russia and China can get prepared. As a result of the communist oppression, a signifiant percentage of the Russian population is in the American orbit. These Russians trust Washington more than they trust Putin. The Chinese are too occupied dealing with the perils of rapid economic growth to prepare for war and are far behind the threat.

War, however, is the lifeblood of the profits of the military/security complex, and war is the chosen method of the neoconservatives for achieving their goal of American hegemony.

Pakistan borders China and former constituent parts of the Soviet Union in which the US now has military bases on Russia’s borders. US war upon and occupation of Pakistan is likely to awaken the somnolent Russians and Chinese. As both possess nuclear ICBMs, the outcome of the military/security complex’s greed for profits and the neoconservatives’ greed for empire could be the extinction of life on earth.

The patriots and super-patriots who fall in with the agendas of the military-security complex and the flag-waving neoconservatives are furthering the “end-times” outcome so fervently desired by the rapture evangelicals, who will waft up to heaven while the rest of us die on earth.

This is not President Reagan’s hoped for outcome from ending the cold war.

Japan sets up covert foreign intelligence agency: WikiLeaks

By IB Times Staff Reporter

Japan has created a covert foreign intelligence agency to spy on China and North Korea and to collect information on terrorist attacks, said a media report citing the whistleblower website WikiLeaks.

The agency, which aims to provide confidential information to the Japanese government, is the first such established by the country since World War II, the Sydney Morning Herald said on Monday.

The spy unit is modeled on Western counterparts such as the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Australian Secret Intelligence Service and the British MI6, the report said.

It has been established under the Japan’s Cabinet Intelligence and Research Office, or Naicho, a top intelligence agency in the country.

Diplomatic concerns made Japan to stay away from establishing espionage networks postwar, largely depending on data interception and other technical methods to gather intelligence data.

Japanese military and naval intelligence, along with the infamous secret police, the Kempeitai, carried out wide spy networks throughout east and south-east Asia up to the end of World War II, the report noted.

A secret report cabled to Washington by the US embassy in Tokyo indicates that the decision to create spy agency was taken by the former Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda, and his successor, Taro, who headed Liberal Democratic Party government until September 2008.

”The decision has been made to go very slowly with this process as the Japanese realise that they lack knowledge, experience, and assets/officers. A training process for new personnel will be started soon,” the embassy reported.

Israel’s Fission Field Warfare: Pakistan, Iraq and Egypt

By Jonathan Azaziah

Pakistan

Fission is defined as ‘the act or process of splitting into parts.’ In a more scientific explanation, fission is defined as ‘division of the atomic nucleus into two lighter fragments releasing energy. In a nuclear power station, fission occurs slowly, while in a nuclear weapon, very rapidly. In both instances, fission must be very carefully controlled.’

When applied to daily shifts on the geopolitical front, the first definition is self explanatory. The second definition however, requires a bit of dissection. The ‘nucleus’ of a stable society is the peaceful, brotherly and harmonious interaction between its people. To split this nucleus through fission, thus disrupting the interaction and establishing division, the variable needed is any type of bombardment.

Once the nucleus is split, the energy released is that which resembles misunderstanding, enmity, frustration and even hatred. Since the fission itself is controlled ‘very carefully,’ the manipulators must also induce the bombardment. This bombardment can be directed at either side of the divided societal ‘nucleus,’ fomenting an ever-expanding atmosphere of perpetual blaming and infighting. By constantly injecting deception into the enclaves where the newly formed ‘fragments’ have been divided, they remain quite incognizant of the reason that they have been split from their harmonious core to begin with.

Sustaining this division in nations which aren’t fully aligned with the greater globalist agenda, also known as ‘hostile environments,’ tips the geopolitical scale in the favor of the manipulators and their agents who designed the bombardment. There is an entity that has mastered this political fission, or ‘fission field warfare.’ And that criminal entity is Israel.

Hostile Environment I: Humiliation In Pakistan

The Zionist entity’s first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, an insidiously racist man devoid of any humanity and the architect of the Palestinian Nakba which ethnically cleansed Palestine of its indigenous, possessed an excessively xenophobic and brutally delusional world view. Nothing provides better evidence of this than the disturbing remarks that Ben-Gurion levied against the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in 1967:

“The world Zionist movement should not be neglectful of the dangers of Pakistan to it. And Pakistan now should be its first target, for this ideological state is a threat to our existence. And Pakistan, the whole of it, hates the Jews and loves the Arabs. This lover of Arabs is more dangerous to us than the Arabs themselves. For that matter, it is most essential for world Zionism that it now take steps against Pakistan. Whereas the inhabitants of the Indian Peninsula are Hindus, whose hearts have been full of hatred towards Muslims. Therefore, India is the most important base for us to work from against Pakistan. It is essential that  we exploit this base and strike and crush Pakistanis, enemies of Jews and Zionism, by all disguised and secret plans (1).”

Fast forward to the new millennium, and David Ben-Gurion’s speech has manifested within every inch of Pakistan’s societal woes via extensive fission field warfare employed cooperatively by Mossad and Hinudtvadi India’s RAW.

In 2001, Mossad and RAW founded four new agencies for the specific purpose of unleashing chaos throughout Pakistan, targeting the upper echelons of its political sphere and financial sectors. Using high-powered explosives, trains, railway stations, bus stations, hotels and cinemas would all be targets of bombardment. Most integral to the Zionism-Hindutva intelligence nexus however, was the religious establishment. Operatives would strategically place explosives in the mosques of various sects and leave false flags to create the appearance of a ‘sectarian’ hit. RAW led the way in the recruitment phase of the operation, luring Pakistani men between the ages of 20 and 30 into visiting India, before ruining them with entrapment and subversion, coercing them into working against their nation (2).

Following the example of the Zionist entity’s usual knack for extremism when titling its subversive military-intelligence operations, the next phase of Pakistan’s ‘crushing’ is known as the ‘Dragon Policy,’ named after the Talmudic interpretation of the dragon, where the serpent-like beast serves as the splitter and transformer of light into darkness. This facet of the Zionist stratagem begins with the recruiting, where experts of Mossad and RAW train personalities from varying criminal sectors in the finer arts of covert operations and terrorism, including mercenaries, mafia dons and narcotics tycoons. Like the CIA funding its covert operations in Latin America with monolithic amounts of cocaine distribution in poor African-American communities at home (3), Zionist and Hindutvadi intelligence mirrored this format, only with heroin cultivated from illegal poppy crops.

At least 57 recruitment/training camps across India and illegally occupied Kashmir were established by the Mossad-RAW alliance; each camp breeding terrorists controlled by Tel Aviv and New Delhi to be launched inside Pakistan. Mossad and Aman (Israel’s Military Intelligence Directorate) financially contributed to this operation in an elephantine manner. Once recruits are deployed into the field, RAW provides them with cash, weapons and ammunition while posing as Al-Qaeda. Subsequently, through the media networks in the West, which are exclusively owned by fierce Zionist extremists, Al-Qaeda and the Taliban are blamed for ‘terrorism’ and Pakistan is heavily criticized for being incompetently unable to combat it (4).

The strength of the Mossad-RAW Dragon Policy is solidified through its partnership with the hunter-killer mercenary giant, Blackwater, now known as Xe. Blackwater, under the leadership of ex-CIA officer Erik Prince and Christian Zionist-Dominionist Dick DeVos, became a hive for Israel Firsters within America’s power structure; a haven for elements sympathetic to Zionism and full of irrational hatred for the Arab and Muslim world (5). This Zionist fervor within Xe made it an obvious candidate for a confederation with Israel and Hindutva.

Personnel from the top tiers of Mossad and RAW ordnance units have coordinated strikes with strategically  placed Xe cells within Pakistan to unleash furious bombings when ‘patsy’ agents are unable to secure a ‘checkout’ on a designated mission. The massacre that claimed the lives of 54 innocent Shia and injured 150 others at an Al-Quds Rally in early September 2010 was initially blamed on the ‘Tehrik-I-Taliban,’ a fictional ‘Sunni’ extremist group, as per Dragon Policy strategy. In reality however, this bloodbath was a fission field warfare operation carried out by Xe, in cohesion with Mossad and RAW, to foment division between Sunni and Shia and Pakistan (6). The real Taliban has pegged Blackwater (Xe) on numerous occasions for committing atrocities and wrongfully blaming it on Islam (7).

Recent atrocities in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan fall along the lines of the exact pattern. Twin truck bombings in the northwestern Pakistani town of Peshawar have just claimed the lives of at least 7 innocents, including 2 women, and injured 14 others. The ‘Taliban’ has been blamed for the crime (8). Peshawar is an active stronghold for the Mossad-RAW nexus, and the intelligence agencies have been previously caught by local police engaging in terrorism (9). The truck bomb of course, is a surefire sign of Israeli involvement; it serves as one of Tel Aviv’s signatures. Nearly 29 years ago, the Zionist entity infamously used this highly destructive and deadly weapon to murder 241 US Marines in Beirut while they were sleeping (10).

On January 25th, at least 16 Shia were murdered and 70 others were wounded when car bombs and motorcycle bombs detonated during a religious ceremony. The attacks were blamed on ‘pro-Taliban militants (11),’ revealing the fingerprints of the Dragon Policy. The car bomb is another of Mossad’s signature devices, primarily used in the execution of false flag operations, whether the designated target is a political assassination or everyday terrorism against civilian populations (12). The motorcycle bomb is also a weapon of the Israeli agency, typically unleashed in high-level operations, including in its recent hit on Iranian nuclear scientist Masoud Ali Muhammadi, murdered by Mossad in front of his home (13).

The imaginary ‘Tehrik-I-Taliban’ was at it again on January 28th, in perfect union with the increasing activity of the Mossad-RAW Dragon Policy, blowing up two girls’ schools and a college in southwestern Pakistan (14). Military-grade dynamite was used, powerful enough to level city blocks, not homemade bombs as the media of the Zionist criminal network would lead the masses to believe.

“By deception, thou shalt wage war” are the words that govern every action of the Mossad. Deception is the very essence of fission field warfare. The bombardments that foment the fission are only the top layer of this intricate form of terrorism. There is a specific reason behind each operation, an ‘origin point.’ The origin point is a world event needing to be deflected from public attention, as a means of exhorting further Zionist control over the masses and consolidating as much power as possible.

An agent of Xe (Blackwater) just
gunned down two innocent
Pakistani men in Lahore for
absolutely no reason.

At this particular time, the origin point for deliverance of fission field warfare in Pakistan is the growing  concern over Blackwater’s all-out infiltration of the Islamic nation, culminating in a mercenary of the hunter-killer corporation gunning down two innocent Pakistani men in front of the US embassy in Lahore (15). This act of blatant lawlessness and degradation is coupled with the growing unrest throughout Pakistan regarding drone strikes and ongoing injustice against Dr. Aafia Siddiqui. The Resistance of the people has grown stronger and even bolder.

Tribesmen in north Waziristan are suing the CIA for killing their family members (16). In trepidation, the CIA pulled ‘Jonathan Banks,’ its station chief in Islamabad and target of the tribesmen’s lawsuit, hoping it could bury the fury of the people and continue its drone campaign (17). But its move was futile. The protests are becoming larger in terms of sheer size, including one that exceeded 10,000 demonstrators in the Mossad-riddled town of Peshawar (18), and another which was comprised of tens of thousands in Karachi (19). And the people aren’t alone in their disgust and desire to see the CIA “video-game” style murder campaign come to an end. All leading political parties in Pakistan (puppets and non-puppets alike) have united in the call to end the CIA’s drone campaign (20), a showing of political unity not seen in decades.

The nucleus of Pakistan was reforming; rejecting calls of the hegemonists in D.C. and Tel Aviv and expelling the energies of enmity and frustration for a common cause of national unity and the defense of its sovereignty. Israel’s fission field warfare however, has reestablished the foundation of division laid out by Ben-Gurion over 40 years prior.

The Shame Of Being An American…

by Paul Craig Roberts

The United States government has overestimated the amount of shame that it and American citizens can live down.  On February 15 “the indispensable people” had to suffer the hypocrisy of the U.S. Secretary of State delivering a speech about America’s commitment to Internet freedom while the U.S. Department of Justice (sic) brought unconstitutional action against Twitter to reveal any connection between WikiLeaks and Bradley Manning, the American hero who, in keeping with the U.S. Military Code, exposed U.S. government war crimes and who is being held in punishing conditions not permitted by the U.S. Constitution. The corrupt U.S. government is trying to create a “conspiracy” case against Julian Assange in order to punish him for revealing U.S. government documents that prove beyond every doubt the mendacity of the U.S. government.
This is pretty bad, but it pales in comparison to the implications revealed on February 15 in the British newspaper, The Guardian. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/feb/15/curveball-iraqi-fantasist-cia-saddam
The Guardian obtained an interview with “Curveball,” the source for Colin Powell’s speech of total lies to the United Nations about Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction.

Colin Powell’s speech created the stage for the illegal American invasion of Iraq

Colin Powell’s speech created the stage for the illegal American invasion of Iraq.The Guardian describes “Curveball” as “the man who pulled off one of the greatest confidence tricks in the history of modern intelligence.” As The Guardian puts it, “Curveball” “manufactured a tale of dread.”

U.S. “intelligence” never interviewed “Curveball.”  The Americans started a war based on second-hand information given to them by incompetent German intelligence, which fell for “Curveball’s” lies that today German intelligence disbelieves.
As the world now knows, Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction (WMD). The Bush/Cheney Regime, of course, knew this, but “Curveball’s” lies were useful to their undeclared agenda. In his interview with The Guardian, “Curveball,” Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, admitted that he made the whole story up. He wanted to do in Saddam Hussein and told whatever fantasy lie he could make up that would serve his purpose.
If the Bush/Cheney Regime had really believed that Saddam Hussein had world-threatening weapons of mass destruction, it would have been a criminal act to concentrate America’s invading force in a small area of Kuwait where a few WMD could have wiped out the entire U.S. invasion force, thus ending the war before it began.
Some Americans are so thoughtless that they would say that Saddam Hussein would never have used the weapons, because we would have done this and that to Iraq, even nuking Baghdad.  But why would Saddam Hussein care if he and his regime were already marked for death? Why would a doomed man desist from inflicting an extraordinary defeat on the American Superpower, thus encouraging Arabs everywhere? Moreover, if Saddam Hussein was unwilling to use his WMD against an invading force, when would he ever use them?  It was completely obvious to the U.S. government that no such weapons existed. The weapons inspectors made that completely clear to the Bush/Cheney Regime.  There were no Iraqi WMD, and everyone in the U.S. government was apprised of that fact.
Why was there no wonder or comment in the “free” media that the White House accused Iraq of possession of terrible weapons of mass destruction, but nevertheless concentrated its invasion force in such a small area that such weapons could easily have wiped out the invading force?

If Saddam Hussein was unwilling to use his WMD against an invading force, when would he ever use them?

Does democracy really exist in a land where the media is incompetent and the government is unaccountable and lies through its teeth every time if opens its mouth?

“Curveball” represents a new level of immorality.  Rafid al-Janabi shares responsibility  for one million dead Iraqis, 4 million displaced Iraqis, a destroyed country, 4,754 dead American troops, 40,000 wounded and maimed American troops, $3 trillion of wasted US resources, every dollar of which is a debt burden to the American population and a threat to the dollar as reserve currency, ten years of propaganda and lies about terrorism and al Qaeda connections, an American “war on terror” that is destroying countless lives in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and which has targeted Iran, and which has destroyed the Bill of Rights, the US Constitution, and the civil liberties that they guarantee.  And the piece of lying excrement, Rafid al-Janabi, is proud that he brought Saddam Hussein’s downfall at such enormous expense.
Now that Rafid al-Janabi is revealed in the Guardian interview, how safe is he?  There are millions of Iraqis capable of exterminating him for their suffering, and tens of thousands of Americans whose lives have been ruined by Rafid al-Janabi’s lies.

There are millions of Iraqis capable of exterminating him for their suffering, and tens of thousands of Americans whose lives have been ruined by Rafid al-Janabi’s aka “Curveball” lies.

Why does the U.S. government pursue Julian Assange and WikiLeaks for telling the truth when “Curveball,” whose lies wiped out huge numbers of people along with America’s reputation, thinks he can start a political party in Iraq? If the piece of excrement, Rafid al-Janabi, is not killed the minute he appears in Iraq, it will be a miracle.

So we are left to contemplate that a totally incompetent American government has bought enormous instability to its puppet states in the Middle East, because it desperately wanted to believe faulty “intelligence” from Germany that an immoralist provided evidence that Saddam Hussein had Weapons of Mass Destruction.
And America is a superpower, an indispensable nation.
What a total joke!

Wikileaks: US Embassy Illuminati Infiltrate, Manipulate, Brainwash, Scorn French Sovereignty. Governments Collude

Source : EURO-MED.DK

Pyramid-dollarHere is a Wikileaks cable from the US Ambassador in Paris to  the US State Dpt. See explanation for details about codes here.  I do not know how the Blog “The Joy of the Curmudgeonjoy“ found it. But it looks genuine. And here is a blog stating that the following document is a Wikileaks cable.

Its contents are very illuministic – and worthy of the the product of the first Illuminati revolution, the US. The Great Seal (back side  on every one-dollar note was a reminder from Mayer Amschel Rothschild to fulfil Adam Weishaupt´s Communist one-world government program).

I think this interference goes not only for France – but also for any other country – incl. the Arab countries, where now Illuminist revolutions are following the pattern leading the the fall of the Shah of Persia. This promotion if Islam without asking native French is a deeply impermissible interference in the affairs of another souvereign? country, France, especially by a country, The US, which is curbing freedom and democracy more and more at home. I have made the accentuations.

The alleged threat of “Islamic terrorists”, permeates the entire US national security doctrine. Its purpose is to justify wars of aggression in the Middle East, while establishing within America, the contours of the Homeland Security State. In 1979 the largest covert operation in the history of the CIA was launched in Afghanistan…: Zbigniew Brzezinski 1998, who was National Security Adviser to President Jimmy Carter: “We didn’t push the Russians to intervene, but we knowingly increased the probability that they would.” Consistent with Brzezinski’s account, a “Militant Islamic Network” was created by the CIA. The “Islamic Jihad” (or holy war against the Soviets) became an integral part of the CIA’s intelligence ploy.
At the same time, the CIA staged the Iranian revolution by means of the Muslim Brotherhood.

My Summary: The following is an amazingly insolent master race attitude of the first Illuminati state of the World (the USA 1776) toward the world´s 2. Illuminati state (France 1789). It is the way the Roman imperialists treated their defeated provinces: They want to abolish French culture, raising themselves to judges of what is “the right direction” for a foreign country, deciding France´s Islamic future without asking the native French who are being more and more tormented by Muslim immigration, about it. The US ambassador in Paris, Mr. Rivkin, has concocted a Minority  Engagement Strategy to engage the French at all levels to force them by manipulation and the usual illuminist strategy: one devoted group creates 10 others as well as by massive brainwashing. Mr. Rivkin refers to the slogan of the Illuminist French Revolution: Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity. “We will support, train, and engage media and political activists in the right direction”, he writes, thus undermining the sovereignty of France. The US Embassy has even founded a website called Oumma.fr – the exclusive worldwide Muslim  society –the opposite of integration.  And if France does not act according to Illuminati Rivkin´s ideology he maintains that the influence and prestige of France will decrease abroad – while the truth is that Europeans will admire France all the more. However they do not count in Mr. Rivkins sick imagination. Only the opinion of the world´s 6–7.000 elitists count.  Mr. Rivkin wants the Muslims to destroy French “Laícité” and Christian faith alike through Interfaith groups which will always be dominated by Muslims – and all the more, the more their percentage of the population constitutes. Mr. Rivkin will connect France’s future  leaders to each other in a forum the values of which the US helps to shape. And he wants French history education to be reformed so as to describe the merits of Nuslims in French history (Which?).  Finally Ambassador Rivkin writes: “While we could never claim credit for these positive  developments, we will focus our efforts in carrying out  activities, described above, that prod, urge and stimulate  movement in the right direction. In addition, we will track  intangible measures of success — a growing sense of  belonging, for example, among young French minorities, and a  burgeoning hope that they, too, can represent their country  at home, and abroad, even one day at the pinnacle of French  public life, as president of the Republic.” This means a desire to deal the deathblow to Western world sovereignty, culture and Christianity. This US undermining takes place in coolaboration with the  French Ministry of the Interior. In other countries a similar US (“The New World”) Illuminati undermining is no doubt taking place – e.g. in Muslim countries, aiming at emigration to the West and revolutions, as was the case with the Iranian revolution in 1979 – and now in EU´s Arab Euromediterranean “partner” countries. This is exactly Adam Weishaupt´s Illuminati program. But these indefatigable Illuminati cannot or will not understand that Islam and infidel populations are just as incompatible as fire and water – or is that exactly what they do understand? Their imclusion program is the failed program of the EU/UNESCO/ARAB LEAGUE/ISESCO/DCCD´s Anna Lindh Foundation and here and here. UK Prime Minister,  David Cameron, has had enough. In the UK UK values are valid and Muslims have to accept them and stop being a minority group. The UK will no longer support them as such – or will it?

I have made the accentuations.

SUBJECT: EMBASSY PARIS – MINORITY ENGAGEMENT STRATEGY

REF: A. SECSTATE 127215
¶B. PARIS 1714

Classified By: Ambassador Charles H. Rivkin, Reasons 1.4(b),(d).

¶1. (C/NF) SUMMARY: In keeping with France’s unique history  and circumstances, Embassy Paris has created a Minority  Engagement Strategy that encompasses, among other groups, the  French Muslim population and responds to the goals outlined in reftel A. Our aim is to engage the French population at  all levels in order to amplify France’s efforts to realize  its own egalitarian ideals, thereby advancing U.S. national  interests. While France is justifiably proud of its leading  role in conceiving democratic ideals and championing human  rights and the rule of law, French institutions have not  proven themselves flexible enough to adjust to an  increasingly heterodox demography. We believe that if  France, over the long run, does not successfully increase   opportunity and provide genuine political representation for  its minority populations, France could become a weaker, more  divided country, perhaps more crisis-prone and  inward-looking, and consequently a less capable ally. To  support French efforts to provide equal opportunity for  minority populations, we will engage in positive discourse;  set a strong example; implement an aggressive youth outreach  strategy; encourage moderate voices; propagate best  practices; and deepen our understanding of the underlying  causes of inequality in France. We will also integrate the  efforts of various Embassy sections, target influential  leaders among our primary audiences, and evaluate both  tangible and intangible indicators of the success of our  strategy. END SUMMARY.

——————————————— —–
BACKGROUND: THE CRISIS OF REPRESENTATION IN FRANCE
——————————————— —–

¶2. (C/NF) France has long championed human rights and the  rule of law, both at home and abroad, and justifiably  perceives itself as a historic leader among democratic  nations. This history and self-perception will serve us well  as we implement the strategy outlined here, in which we press  France toward a fuller application of the democratic values it espouses. This strategy is necessary because French  institutions have not proven themselves flexible enough to  adjust to the country’s increasingly heterodox demography. Very few minorities hold leadership positions in France’s  public institutions. As President Sarkozy’s own Diversity  Czar Yazid Sabeg told Ambassador Rivkin in December, the  National Assembly “serves as a mirror of the crisis of
representation in France” (reftel B). The National Assembly,  among its 577 deputies, has a single black member from  metropolitan France (excluding its island territories), but  does not have any elected representatives of Muslim or Arab extraction, though this minority group alone represents  approximately 10 percent of the population. The Senate has  two Muslim Senators (out of 343), but no black  representatives and only a few Senators hail from other  ethnic or religious minorities. Sabeg also noted that none  of France’s approximately 180 Ambassadors is black, and only  one is of North African descent. Despite Sarkozy’s  appointment of leaders such as Rachida Dati, Fidela Amara and  Rama Yade, minorities continue to confront a very thick glass  ceiling in France’s public institutions. The French media  remains overwhelmingly white, with only modest increases in  minority representation on camera for major news broadcasts.  Among French elite educational institutions, we are only  aware that Sciences Po has taken serious steps to integrate.  While slightly better represented in private organizations,  minorities in France lead very few corporations and  foundations. Thus the reality of French public life defies  the nation’s egalitarian ideals. In-group, elitist politics  still characterize French public institutions, while extreme  right, xenophobic policies hold appeal for a small (but  occasionally influential) minority. Post will continue to  explore other underlying causes of the social, political and  economic barriers impeding the advancement of minorities in  France (see Tactic 6, below).

¶3. (C/NF) France suffers consequences when its leading  institutions fail to reflect the composition of its  population. We believe France has not benefited fully from  the energy, drive, and ideas of its minorities. Despite some  French claims to serve as a model of assimilation and  meritocracy, undeniable inequities tarnish France’s global  image and diminish its influence abroad. In our view, a  sustained failure to increase opportunity and provide genuine  political representation for its minority populations could  render France a weaker, more divided country. The  geopolitical consequences of France’s weakness and division  will adversely affect U.S. interests, as we need strong  partners in the heart of Europe to help us promote democratic

PARIS 00000058 002 OF 004

values. Moreover, social exclusion has domestic consequences  for France, including the alienation of some segments of the  population, which can in turn adversely affect our own  efforts to fight global networks of violent extremists. A  thriving, inclusive French polity will help advance our  interests in expanding democracy and increasing stability  worldwide.

——————————-
A STRATEGY FOR FRANCE: OUR AIMS
——————————-

¶4. (C/NF) The overarching goal of our minority outreach  strategy is to engage the French population at all levels in  order to help France to realize its own egalitarian ideals.  Our strategy has three broad target audiences in mind: (1)  the majority, especially the elites; (2) minorities, with a  focus on their leaders; (3) and the general population.  Employing the seven tactics described below, we aim (1) to  increase awareness among France’s elites of the benefits of  expanding opportunity and the costs of maintaining the status  quo; (2) to improve the skills and grow the confidence of  minority leaders who seek to increase their influence; (3)  and to communicate to the general population in France that we particularly admire the diversity and dynamism of its  population, while emphasizing the advantages of profiting  from those qualities by expanding opportunities for all.

————————————–
TACTIC 1: ENGAGE IN POSITIVE DISCOURSE
————————————–

¶5. (C/NF) First, we will focus our discourse on the issue of  equal opportunity. When we give public addresses about the  community of democracies, we will emphasize, among the  qualities of democracy, the right to be different, protection  of minority rights, the value of equal opportunity, and the  importance of genuine political representation. In private  meetings, we will deliberately direct questions about equal  opportunity in France to high-level, non-minority French  leaders. Rather than retreating from discussions involving  two sacred cows in France — the concepts of “secularism” and  “communitarianism” — we will engage French leaders directly  about the role that their terminology and intellectual  frameworks could play in creating (or diminishing) equality of opportunity in France. We will endeavor to convey the  costs to France of the under-representation of minorities,  highlighting the benefits we have accumulated, over time, by  working hard to chip away at the various impediments faced by American minorities. We will, of course, continue to adopt a  humble attitude regarding our own situation in the U.S., but  nevertheless will stress the innumerable benefits accruing  from a proactive approach to broad social inclusion,  complementing our French partners on any positive steps they  take. In addition, we will continue and intensify our work  with French museums and educators to reform the history  curriculum taught in French schools, so that it takes into  account the role and perspectives of minorities in French history.

——————————
TACTIC 2: SET A STRONG EXAMPLE
——————————

¶6. (C/NF) Second, we will employ the tool of example. We will continue and expand our efforts to bring minority  leaders from the U.S. to France, working with these American  leaders to convey an honest sense of their experience to  French minority and non-minority leaders alike. When we send  French leaders to America, we will include, as often as  possible, a component of their trip that focuses on equal  opportunity. In the Embassy, we will continue to invite a  broad spectrum of French society to our events, and avoid, as  appropriate, hosting white-only events, or minority-only  events. We will be inclusive, working in this way to break  down barriers, facilitate communication, and expand networks.  By bringing together groups who would not otherwise interact  together, the Embassy will continue to use its cachet to  create networking opportunities that cut through traditional cultural and social barriers in France.

——————————————
TACTIC 3: LAUNCH AGGRESSIVE YOUTH OUTREACH
——————————————

¶7. (C/NF) Third, we will continue and expand our youth  outreach efforts in order to communicate about our shared  values with young French audiences of all socio-cultural  backgrounds. Leading the charge on this effort, the  Ambassador’s inter-agency Youth Outreach Initiative aims to  engender a positive dynamic among French youth that leads to  greater support for U.S. objectives and values. Some

PARIS 00000058 003 OF 004

elements of our Youth Outreach Initiative have particular  importance for minorities, including:  — Drawing heavily on new media, we aim first to build trust  and gain understanding among French youth from diverse backgrounds.  — While reinforcing mutual trust and understanding, we seek  to help France’s next generation improve their capacity to  lead in their communities, while also conveying the  importance of transcending the bounds of their own  communities in order to make a broader, national impact.
– To achieve these aims, we will build on the expansive  Public Diplomacy programs already in place at post, and  develop creative, additional means to influence the youth of  France, employing new media, corporate partnerships,  nationwide competitions, targeted outreach events, especially invited U.S. guests.
– We will also develop new tools to identify, learn from,  and influence future French leaders. — As we expand training and exchange opportunities for the  youth of France, we will continue to make absolutely certain  that the exchanges we support are inclusive. — We will build on existing youth networks in France, and  create new ones in cyberspace, connecting France’s future  leaders to each other in a forum whose values we help to  shape — values of inclusion, mutual respect, and open dialogue.

———————————-
TACTC 4: ENCOURAGE MODERATE VOICES
———————————-

¶8. (C/NF) Fourth, we will encourage moderate voices of  tolerance to express themselves with courage and conviction.  Building on our work with two prominent websites geared toward young French-speaking Muslims — oumma.fr and saphirnews.com — we will support, train, and engage media and political activists who share our values. As we continue  to meet with moderate leaders of minority groups, we will  also expand our efforts to facilitate grass roots inter-faith exchanges. We will share in France, with faith communities  and with the Ministry of the Interior, the most effective  techniques for teaching tolerance currently employed in  American mosques, synagogues, churches, and other religious  institutions. We will engage directly with the Ministry of  Interior to compare U.S. and French approaches to supporting  minority leaders who seek moderation and mutual  understanding, while also comparing our responses to those
who seek to sow hatred and discord.

———————————
TACTC 5: PROPAGATE BEST PRACTICES
———————————

¶9. (C/NF) Fifth, we will continue our project of sharing  best practices with young leaders in all fields, including  young political leaders of all moderate parties so that they  have the toolkits and mentoring to move ahead. We will create or support training and exchange programs that teach  the enduring value of broad inclusion to schools, civil  society groups, bloggers, political advisors, and local  politicians. Through outreach programs, Embassy officers from all sections will interact and communicate to these same groups our best practices in creating equal opportunities for  all Americans. We will also provide tools for teaching  tolerance to the network of over 1,000 American university students who teach English in French schools every year.

——————————————— —-
TACTIC 6: DEEPEN OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE PROBLEM
——————————————— —-

¶10. (C/NF) Sixth, through focused contact work, reporting  and analysis, we will deepen the USG understanding of the  underlying causes of inequality and discrimination in France.  We will break new ground by examining how the very structure  of some French institutions may limit minority representation in elected office and the high ranks of the civil service.  Examining significant developments in depth, such as the  debate on national identity (reftel B), we plan to track  trends and, ideally, predict change in the status of  minorities in France, estimating how this change will impact   U.S. interests. As our awareness expands and deepens, we  will adjust, accordingly, the minority outreach strategy  described here.

PARIS 00000058 004 OF 004

——————————————— ——–
TACTIC 7: INTEGRATE, TARGET, AND EVALUATE OUR EFFORTS
——————————————— ——–

¶11. (C/NF) Finally, a Minority Working Group will integrate  the discourse, actions, and analysis of relevant sections and  agencies in the Embassy. This group, working in tandem with  the Youth Outreach Initiative, will identify and target influential leaders and groups among our primary audiences.  It will also evaluate our impact over the course of the year,  by examining both tangible and intangible indicators of  success. Tangible changes include a measurable increase in the number of minorities leading and participating in public  and private organizations, including elite educational  institutions; growth in the number of constructive efforts by  minority leaders to organize political support both within  and beyond their own minority communities; new, proactive  policies to enhance social inclusion adopted by non-minority  political leaders; expansion of inter-communal and  inter-faith exchanges at the local level; decrease in popular support for xenophobic political parties and platforms.
While we could never claim credit for these positive  developments, we will focus our efforts in carrying out  activities, described above, that prod, urge and stimulate  movement in the right direction. In addition, we will track  intangible measures of success — a growing sense of  belonging, for example, among young French minorities, and a  burgeoning hope that they, too, can represent their country  at home, and abroad, even one day at the pinnacle of French  public life, as president of the Republic.

Humans Have Intentionally Modified Weather for Military Purposes and Climate Control for Decades

Source : Pakalert Press

Washington’s Blog

Weather modification is a well-known endeavor. For example, governments have been seeding clouds for decades to create more rain.

And during warfare to create mud to slow the enemy’s ability to use roads.

As the Guardian reported in 2001:

During the Vietnam war, the Americans launched Project Popeye, a secret mission to seed the tops of monsoon clouds and trigger phenomenal downpours that would wash away the Ho Chi Minh Trail used for ferrying supplies.For five years Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos were sprayed during the monsoons, and military intelligence claimed that rainfall was increased by a third in some places. It only came to an end in March 1971 when [Washington Post] journalist Jack Anderson exposed the project and caused such a public furor that the UN general assembly approved a universal treaty banning environmental warfare.

But the US air force planners recently came up with new proposals to launch new weather weapons. Instead of silver-iodide, the idea is to shower fine particles of heat-absorbing carbon over clouds to trigger localised flooding and bog down troops and their equipment. Lasers on aircraft would also trigger lightning onto enemy aircraft, whilst other lasers could be fired at fog to clear a path over enemy targets on the ground.

Whether or not they work, past experiences tell us to be wary of tampering with the weather. In 1947, meteorologists tried to kill off a dying hurricane out at sea by seeding the clouds. The following day, the hurricane suddenly gathered strength, swung round and hit Savannah, Georgia causing extensive damage. The weather boffins were so rattled by the disaster it was not until August 1969 that they dared try again.

When Hurricane Debbie was 700 miles out at sea, they flew three seeding missions around its eye, where tropical storms are at their most intense, but the results were mixed – with each seeding the hurricane’s winds were reduced and each time they picked up again.

Interestingly, U.S. weather modification efforts during the Vietnam war were revealed as part of the Pentagon Papers.

As the Washington Post reported on July 2, 1972:

Indochina – by the evidence of a long-ignored passage in the Pentagon Papers – has been a test battleground, the site of purposeful rain-making along the Ho Chi Minh trails.

***

Sen. Claiborne Pell (D-R.I.) is prominent among members of Congress who believe it has become a reality. “There is very little doubt in my mind,” he says. Rep. Gilbert Gude (R-Md.) states: “There’s no doubt in my mind that it’s going on in Vietnam.”

“I think there’s no doubt rain-making was used in Laos on the trail,” says a Senate committee aide wee versed in defense affairs.

***

It is a “successful” pre-1967 use which is documented in the “senator Gravel” version of the Pentagon papers. In late February, 1967, this document discloses the Joint Chiefs of Staff prepared a list of “alternative strategies” for President Johnson.

One, titled “Laos Operations”, read:

“Continue at present plus Operation Pop Eye to reduce trafficability along infiltration routes … authorization required to implement phase of weather modification process previously successfully tested and evaluated in same area. (Italics added)

In 1967 — according to columnist Jack Anderson, who published the first allegation of Indochina rain-making — U.S. forces started secret Project Intermediary Compatriot “to hamper enemy logistics” … (with) claimed success in creating man-made cloudbursts … and flooding conditions” along the Ho Chi Minh trails, “making them impassable.”

The Post makes clear that cloud-seeding wasn’t limited to the Vietnam war theater:

The Defense Department freely reports that it has “field capacities” for making rain. It used them in the Philippines in 1969, in a six-month “precipitation augmentation project” at the Philippines request; in India in 1967, at a similar invitation; over Okinawa and Midway Islands, and in June, July and August, 1971, over drought-stricken Texas, at the urgent request of Gov. Preston Smith.

***

Navy rain-makers are currently involved in two long-range California programs — one over the Pacific off Santa Barbara, an attempt to increase rainfall over a national forest; the other over the Central Sierras to try to increase the snow-pack for electric utilities that depend on water power.

In 2008, the Denver Post noted the enormous scope of weather modification projects:

Scientists are monitoring more than 150 weather-modification projects in 40 countries, including at least 60 in the Western United States. The projects include wringing additional snow out of clouds for California hydropower and easing droughts in sub-Saharan Africa.

Most of the current research on this inexact science is being conducted abroad ….

In 2005, the Boston Globe provided an account of the early discovery of silver iodide as a tool for modifying weather:

In 1946, over Mount Greylock in western Massachusetts, a General Electric research chemist named Vincent Schaefer scattered three pounds of crushed dry ice out of an airplane into a cloud and set off a snow flurry. It was the world’s first successful cloud seeding-later that year, the meteorologist Bernard Vonnegut (brother to the novelist) discovered that silver iodide smoke had a similar effect-and weather modification emerged from the realm of con men and eccentrics. Most meteorologists remained skeptical, but by 1951, 10 percent of the United States was under commercial cloud seeding.

“Intervention in atmospheric and climatic matters on any desired scale” was only decades away, predicted John von Neumann, the mathematician who helped invent and began programming the first electronic computers to model the weather. Over the next 30 years, the federal government spent hundreds of millions of dollars on projects all over the country to increase precipitation, to mitigate hailstorms (an age-old enemy of farmers), and, most successfully, to clear the fog from around airports. Perhaps the era’s most ambitious endeavor was Project Stormfury, which sent up airplanes to seed the eye walls of hurricanes with silver iodide to weaken the winds before landfall.

(And see this discussion by an MIT scientist regarding the use of weather modification to mitigate hurricane damage.)

Moreover, the Post points out that – even in 1972 – weather modification has been tested for other applications as well:

Among patterns that can be predictably” be modified [Robert M. White, the current chief of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration ] said, are: cold fog (which can be cleared from airfields) ; cumulus clouds (most common in the tropics — “In Florida,”, White said, “we have been able almost at will to make them grow explosively”); orographic clouds (moist air moving up over mountains — “At the right temperature you can begin thinking of milking them for water”) and hailstorms (which can often be suppressed, according to recent claims by the Russians, who fire silver iodide into them from rockets and artillery).

And – as the Post notes – even in 1972, the government was studying the affect of weather modification on climate:

ARPA Director Stephen J. Lukasik told the Senate Appropriations Committee in March: “Since it now appears highly probable that major world powers have the ability to create modifications of climate that might be seriously detrimental to the security of this country, Nile Blue [a computer simulation] was established in FY 70 to achieve a US capability to (1) evaluate all consequences of of a variety of possible actions … (2) detect trends in in the global circulation which foretell changes … and (3) determine if possible , means to counter potentially deleterious climatic changes …”

“What this means,” Lukasik explains, “is learning how much you have to tickle the atmosphere to perturb the earth’s climate. I guess we’d call it a threat assessment.”

The Post also quoted high-level scientists warning that enemies could modify weather as a direct form of warfare, for example, by flooding coastal areas where one’s enemy resided.

Now, weather modification is so mainstream that Texas openly discusses it’s cloud-seeding programs.

And U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas introduced the Weather Modification Research And Technology Transfer Authorization Act in 2004, saying:

Weather modification is the general term that refers to any human attempt to alter the weather…. These efforts have been used in the U.S. for more than 50 years to reduce crop and property damage, optimize useable precipitation during growing seasons and lessen the impact of periodic, often severe droughts.

The weather modification projects in Texas and other States in the U.S. are much more than well considered responses to drought. They are trying to use the latest technological developments in the science to chemically squeeze more precipitation out of clouds. Moisture that is needed to replenish fresh-water supplies in aquifers and reservoirs.

(The bill apparently didn’t pass)

There’s even a Journal of Weather Modification (here’s a peek inside).

The Technology Has Advanced Far Beyond Seeding Clouds With Silver Iodide

The technology has advanced a long way since the early 1970s.

For example, the Telegraph reported yesterday that Abu Dhabi ‘creates man-made rainstorms’ by “using giant ionisers, shaped like giant lampshades, to generate fields of negatively charged particles, which create cloud formation.” “There are many applications,” Professor Hartmut Grassl, a former institute director, is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying. “One is getting water into a dry area. Maybe this is a most important point for mankind.”

And former secretary of defense William Cohen told a conference on terrorism on April 28, 1997 that people can:

Alter the climate … remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.

The Use of Sulfur Dioxide to Affect Climate?

Tom Wigley – senior scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research and former director of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia and current – has proposed releasing sulfur dioxide in the upper atmosphere to reflect sunlight and reduce warming. And see this.

Wigley talks about this proposal in a Discovery channel special on weather modification.

Other scientists have suggested the same thing. See – by way of example only – this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this and this.

More History … and Complicated Issues to Consider for the Future

The above-described Boston Globe article pointed to the complexity of the issues involved in weather modification:

In 2003 the National Academy of Sciences recommended “a coordinated national program” to “conduct a sustained research effort” into weather modification.

Politicians in Western and Southwestern states are funding attempts to tickle more moisture out of the clouds ….

Last fall, a meteorologist named Ross Hoffman suggested in Scientific American that a network of microwave-beaming satellites could literally take the wind out of hurricanes.

In some of the driest parts of Mexico, a Bedford-based company called Ionogenics is testing a rainmaking apparatus that uses an array of steel poles to ionize the air.

China, a country with widespread cloud seeding, has announced plans to engineer clear weather in Beijing for the 2008 Olympics.

Meanwhile, deepening concern over the possibly cataclysmic effects of climate change has spurred a number of recent proposals, some sketched out in considerable detail, to engineer a measure of counteractive cooling. John Latham, an atmospheric physicist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo., has proposed increasing the reflectivity of the cloud cover by stirring up water vapor from the ocean with a fleet of giant egg-beater-like turbines.

A few years ago, a team led by the late Edward Teller suggested creating a similar effect by launching a million tons of tiny aluminum balloons into the atmosphere.

***

As our ability to comprehend the weather improves and as the threat of climate change looms larger, some scientists are ready to brave the uncertainty and tangled ethics of tinkering with the skies. . . .

The US military, unsurprisingly, was intrigued by the possibility of a godlike meteorological arsenal. According to Spencer Weart, a physicist and historian of science at the American Institute of Physics, the thinking in the Defense Department was “maybe we’ll give the Russians a real Cold War, or maybe they’ll give us one, so we should be ready.” Pentagon money funded much of the era’s climate research, helping to create the weather models we now use in forecasting. War gamers dreamed up climatological warfare scenarios like laying down a blanket of fog over an airfield or visiting drought upon an enemy’s breadbasket.

***

But the grandest climate engineering schemes came from the Soviet Union. The most Promethean among them was a late 1950s proposal to dam the Bering Strait and, by pumping water from the Arctic Ocean into the Pacific, draw warm water northward from the Atlantic to melt the polar ice pack, making the Arctic Ocean navigable and warming Siberia. The leading Soviet climatologist, Mikhail I. Budyko, cautioned against it, arguing that the ultimate effects were too difficult to predict (though he himself had played with the idea of warming the Arctic by covering it in soot to decrease its reflectivity). John F. Kennedy, as a presidential candidate, suggested the United States look into collaborating on the project. While the two countries continued desultory discussions of the Bering Strait plan into the 1970s, the American government was by then losing interest in the whole field of weather modification.

***

In 1972, a government cloud-seeding run in South Dakota was followed by a violent deluge, and more than 200 people were killed in the ensuing flood. Meteorologists disagreed over whether seeding was to blame, but the incident became an ominous symbol for those who saw weather modifiers as latter-day Pandoras. . . . Boyle’s caution may be merited, but scientists are better equipped today to understand and manipulate the weather than they were 30 years ago.

***

Some scientists and engineers, such as Daniel Schrag, director of Harvard’s Laboratory for Geochemical Oceanography, point out that, in light of the planet’s growing thirst and rising temperature, even Soviet-scale climate modification is attracting real consideration. Boyle, who spoke at a joint MIT-Cambridge University conference on the topic last year, readily concedes, “There are very prominent, serious scientists who are considering these things.”

***

A 1996 Air Force report entitled “Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025,” argued that “the tremendous military capabilities that could result from this field are ignored at our own peril.”

***

Even purely peaceful aims would lead to a cascade of seemingly zero-sum conflicts. In the US, cloud seeding has set off several lawsuits in which, for example, downwind farmers have accused a cloud-seeding neighbor of “stealing” their rain. Such issues only grow in complexity along with the scale.

***

According to Joe Kaplinsky, a technology analyst in London, “To raise these things before the technology has really gotten off the ground is to deprive us of the potential benefits of any technology, because any technology can be misused.” “Of course some people will benefit and some people will lose,” Kaplinsky says, “but there are social mechanisms for solving disagreements, either through compensation or through democratic debate.”

Here is a copy of the Air Force study “Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025″.

The American Institute of Physics – the organization mentioned in the Boston Globe article – provides an interesting overview of the history of weather modification:

From 1945 into the 1970s, much effort went into studies of weather modification. American entrepreneurs tried cloud-seeding to enhance local rainfall, Russian scientists offered fabulous schemes of planetary engineering, and military agencies secretly explored “climatological warfare.”

***

In the mid 1970s … Research turned instead to controversial “geoengineering” schemes for interventions that might restrain global warming if it started to become unbearable.

***At the close of the Second World War, a few American scientists brought up a troublesome idea. If it were true, as some claimed, that humans were inadvertently changing their local weather by cutting down forests and emitting pollution, why not try to modify the weather on purpose? For generations there had been proposals for rainmaking, based on folklore like the story that cannonades from big battles brought rain.

Now top experts began to take the question seriously…. At the end of 1945 a brilliant mathematician, John von Neumann, called other leading scientists to a meeting in Princeton, where they agreed that modifying weather deliberately might be possible. They expected that could make a great difference in the next war. Soviet harvests, for example, might be ruined by creating a drought. Some scientists suspected that alongside the race with the Soviet Union for ever more terrible nuclear weapons, they were entering an equally fateful race to control the weather. As the Cold War got underway, U.S. military agencies devoted significant funds to research on what came to be called “climatological warfare.”

In 1953 a President’s Advisory Committee on Weather Control was established to pursue the idea. In 1958, the U.S. Congress acted directly to fund expanded rainmaking research. Large-scale experimentation was also underway, less openly, in the Soviet Union.Military agencies in the U.S. (and presumably in the Soviet Union) supported research not only on cloud seeding but on other ways that injecting materials into the atmosphere might alter weather. Although much of this was buried in secrecy, the public learned that climatological warfare might become possible. In a 1955 Fortune magazine article, von Neumann himself explained that “Microscopic layers of colored matter spread on an icy surface, or in the atmosphere above one, could inhibit the reflection-radiation process, melt the ice, and change the local climate.” The effects could be far-reaching, even world-wide. “What power over our environment, over all nature, is implied!” he exclaimed. Von Neumann foresaw “forms of climatic warfare as yet unimagined,” perhaps more dangerous than nuclear war itself. He hoped it would force humanity to take a new, global approach to its political problems.

Around 1956, Soviet engineers began to speculate that they might be able to throw a dam across the Bering Strait and pump water from the Arctic Ocean into the Pacific. This would draw warm water up from the Atlantic. Their aim was to eliminate the ice pack, make the Arctic Ocean navigable, and warm up Siberia. The idea attracted some notice in the United States — presidential candidate John F. Kennedy remarked that the idea was worth exploring as a joint project with the Soviets, and the discussion continued into the 1970s.

Beginning around 1961, Budyko and other scientists speculated about how humanity might alter the global climate by strewing dark dust or soot across the Arctic snow and ice. The soot would lower the albedo (reflection of sunlight), and the air would get warmer. Spreading so much dust year after year would be prohibitively expensive. But according to a well-known theory, warmer air should melt some snow and sea-ice and thus expose the dark underlying soil and ocean water, which would absorb sunlight and bring on more warming. So once dust destroyed the reflective cover, it might not re-form.

A 1972 U.S. government rain-making operation in South Dakota was followed by a disastrous flood, and came under attack in a class-action lawsuit.

Already back in 1965, a Presidential advisory panel had suggested that if greenhouse effect warming by carbon dioxide gas ever became a problem, the government might take countervailing steps. The panel did not consider curbing the use of fossil fuels. They had in mind geoengineering schemes — spreading something across the ocean waters to reflect more sunlight, perhaps, or sowing particles high in the atmosphere to encourage the formation of reflective clouds. Some back-of-the-envelope arithmetic suggested such steps were feasible, and indeed could cost less than many government programs. In 1974, Budyko calculated that if global warming ever became a serious threat, we could counter it with just a few airplane flights a day in the stratosphere, burning sulfur to make aerosols that would reflect sunlight away.

For a few years in the early 1970s, new evidence and arguments led many scientists to suspect that the greatest climate risk was not warming, but cooling. A new ice age seemed to be approaching as part of the natural glacial cycle, perhaps hastened by human pollution that blocked sunlight. Technological optimists suggested ways to counter this threat too. We might spread soot from cargo aircraft to darken the Arctic snows, or even shatter the Arctic ice pack with “clean” thermonuclear explosions. [For background, see this and this.]

The bitter fighting among communities over cloud-seeding would be as nothing compared with conflicts over attempts to engineer global climate. Moreover, as Budyko and Western scientists alike warned, scientists could not predict the consequences of such engineering efforts. We might forestall global warming only to find we had triggered a new ice age.

Such worries revived the U.S. military’s interest in artificial climate change on a global scale. A group at the RAND corporation, a defense think tank near Los Angeles, had been working with a computer climate model that originated at the University of California, Los Angeles.

The RAND group had to scramble to find support elsewhere. They turned to the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the Department of Defense.

When a National Academy of Sciences panel convened in 1991 to catalog the options, the members got into a long and serious debate over whether to include the grand “geoengineering” ideas. Might hopes of a future fix just encourage people to avoid the work of restricting greenhouse gas emissions? The panel reluctantly voted to include every idea, so that preparations could start in case the climate deteriorated so badly that radical steps would be the lesser evil. Their fundamental problem was the one that had bedeviled climate science from the start — if you pushed on this intricate system, nobody could say for sure what the final consequences might be.

What About Contrails?

The Environmental Protection Agency notes in a report entitled “Aircraft Contrails Factsheet”:

Persistent contrails can last for hours while growing to several kilometers in width and 200 to 400 meters in height.

Figure 2. Photograph of two contrail types. The contrail extending across the image is an evolving persistent contrail. Shown just above it is a short-lived contrail. Short-lived contrails evaporate soon after being formed due to low atmospheric humidity conditions. The persistent contrail shown here was formed at a lower altitude where higher humidity was present …. (Photos: J. Holecek, NOAA Aeronomy Laboratory, Boulder, CO.)

Figure 3. Persistent contrails and contrails evolving and spreading into cirrus clouds. Here, the humidity of the atmosphere is high, and the contrail ice particles continue to grow by taking up water from the surrounding atmosphere. These contrails extend for large distances and may last for hours. On other days when atmospheric humidity is lower, the same aircraft passages might have left few or even no contrails. (Photo: L. Chang, Office of Atmospheric Programs, U.S. EPA.)

Persistent contrails are of interest to scientists because they increase the cloudiness of the atmosphere. The increase happens in two ways. First, persistent contrails are line-shaped clouds that would not have formed in the atmosphere without the passage of an aircraft. Secondly, persistent contrails often evolve and spread into extensive cirrus cloud cover that is indistinguishable from naturally occurring cloudiness (See Figure 3). At present, it is unknown how much of this more extensive cloudiness would have occurred without the passage of an aircraft. Not enough is known about how natural clouds form in the atmosphere to answer this question. Changes in cloudiness are important because clouds help control the temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere. Changes in cloudiness resulting from human activities are important because they might contribute to long-term changes in the Earth’s climate. Many other human activities also have the potential of contributing to climate change. Our climate involves important parameters such as air temperature, weather patterns, and rainfall. Changes in climate may have important impacts on natural resources and human health. Contrails’ possible climate effects are one component of aviation’s expected overall climate effect.

Persistent line-shaped contrails are estimated to cover, on average, about 0.1 percent of the Earth’s surface ….

It is clear that persistent jet contrails can affect weather and climate. I have no idea whether persistent jet contrails are an unintentional affect of airplanes interacting with the environment, or an intentional attempt to affect the weather.

The articles quoted in the first part of this essay provide support for the possibility that at least some of the affects might be intentional. And as a 2008 international workshop on weather modification noted:

It has been well established that successful implementation of Cloud Seeding resulting in precipitation enhancement has significant positive beneficial impact in managing the issue of global warming and climate change….

German television network RTL purportedly alleges that the German government has admitted testing persistent jet contrails for military purposes – as a high-tech form of “chaff” to disrupt enemy radar.

The EPA attributes formation of persistent jet contrails to altitude and humidity, as well as trace impurities such as sulfur contained in jet fuel. On the other hand, some claim that very high concentrations of chemicals like barium and sulfur have been found in groundwater after the incidence of persistent jet contrails increased. And see this.

But whether or not persistent jet contrails are intentionally being created to affect climate or for military purposes or are an unintentional byproduct of flying a modern airplane is beyond the scope of this essay.

More convincing video of Jerusalem UFO comes to light

Source : Pakalert Press

Wake Up BD & Pakalert Press reported on an incredible UFO sighting along with accompanying video clip. The event occurred in Jerusalem at 1am on the Saturday morning. A UFO descended to the level of the Dome of the Rock/Temple Mount before zooming off skywards. Since we broke the story the Internet has buzzed with talk abut this sighting. Unconfirmed reports of other witnesses have surfaced, along with a third clip of the event that many believe is a hoax and a parody.
Now a fourth video of the event has surfaced. This video was supposedly taken by a group of Israelis visiting the Old City of Jerusalem.
The shown footage in this latest clip appears more substantially more convincing than the other clips.
