November 5th, 2014.
This is a case of Problem, Reaction, Solution of the crudest kind. To put it simply, the formula is:a problem is created in order to elicit the right reaction in the target audience who will then actively call for the pre-ordained solution that the plotters desired. The Government of Canada faced a problem, their masters ordered them to implement the infrastructure of tyranny. Canada is lacking in the security threats required to justify the desired new legislation giving unprecedented new powers so the threat was manufactured, a drill was sold as a real event with real deaths and a credulous Canadian public were duped and manipulated by their supposed public servants. (How hollow that term rings in the modern day Western world!)
This operation has succeeded in achieving immediate emotional impact, but the facts as they emerge all point to one thing. This event was completely stage managed and actually appears to be a complete hoax. Both shooting scenes have been revealed to have been manufactured and artificial, In all likelihood no-one died. Both the shooter and the victim were actors performing a theatrical event on behalf of the Canadian Security Services. The only part of the event that stands up to scrutiny is the fact that Zehaf-Bibeau appears to have run into the Parliament Hill Centre Block, The dash-cam footage of Zehaf-Bibeau appears to have been shot on an entirely different day and in any case the man in the dash-cam video does not even appear to be carrying a gun, as elucidated by Professor James Tracy here. (Ottawa Shooting: Evidence of a Staged False Flag Attack « Memory Hole) A Winchester rifle is not a small weapon that can placed in a pocket.
The police were waiting, they were ready half an hour beforehand.
The police cars were waiting outside the parliament and the police tape was waiting at the War memorial,
The source of this photo claims to be a Legislative Assistant at the Canadian Parliament. http://www.maxresistance.com/anonymous-witness-working-at-parliament-fears-for-his-life/ and there is no reason to doubt the claim and the claim that the photograph was taken a long time before the incident began has been confirmed by a number of diligent researchers have proven that the photograph was taken at approximately 920 am, half an hour prior to the beginning of the incidents by gauging the position of the sun from the shadows in the photograph..This tells us that the incident at the War memorial was a staged and planned event and that the Security services were already in place and set to participate in the manufactured event.
100% PROOF OTTAWA SHOOTING A HOAX! SMOKING GUN CONFIRMED!
Several vehicles depicted in this photograph are from the Ottawa Police Force, (the others belong to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police RCMP) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Canadian_Mounted_Police
The RCMP have security jurisdiction in the Parliament zone. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parliament_Hill The presence of the Ottawa police vehicles in place prior to the incident tells us that this was an inter agency operation that included multiple law enforcement (and indeed media) organisations participated.
OTTAWA FALSE FLAG SMOKING GUN! Damning Evidence!
The Police Tape was in Place The CPR was fake.
The entire event at the War Memorial was very clearly a staged and falsified event as loopy and obtuse as it must sound to some. This is simply a rational conclusion based on the available evidence.
Ottawa Shooting False Flag - Barricades + Police Tape Prior to Shooting
The police tape is in place ready to be set up before the shooting took place!.The person supposedly performing CPR is clearly not performing it on the supposed “injured soldier” but seems to be pressing on a spot adjoining the soldier, his chest is not being compressed or touched in any way, the hands with their pristine gloves still crossed on the soldier's chest make that absolutely clear. the CBC camera inexplicably cut back to the studio as Corporal Cirillo was about to be wheeled right in front of the camera,
[caption id="attachment_303" align="alignnone" width="723"] Key player Evan Solomon completely humiliated himself and his organisation. CBC.[/caption]
We are about to get our best view of the Corporal and suddenly cut back to Evan Solomon back in the studio oozing evil. They really made it easy to see the truth with these major gaffes that make it obvious to even the casual observer that this event was entirely set up and stage managed by the state for the most cynical and self-serving purposes.
The event at the Parliament.
An awaiting media, a childish fable from a corny action movie and fake gun holes.
Multiple media crews awaited the “desperate” police as they “charged” into the Centre Block in pursuit of the “Gunman”. How is this remotely possible, why were they there and who are these people?photos media
The narrative of the killing of the alleged gunman Michael Zehaf-Bibeau as told by CBC anchor Evan Solomon was a real low point in media history.
OTTAWA HOAX BUSTED!! 9 Bullet Holes a LIE!
The story of the aged Sergeant at Arms Kevin Vickers leaping through the air, twisting in the air and firing upon the gunman (all in a single bound!) could simply be attributed to “romantic exaggeration”,except for the fact that the entire narrative of the killing of Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau essentially collapsed when it became known that the CBC “nine bullet holes” had been present as far back as May 2013, and were clearly visible in the Google virtual tour of the Canadian parliament. Mr Zehaf-Bibeau experienced an apparently bloodless “death” despite being riddled with bullets at close range. There was never any sign of the alleged gunman's body, not covered up on a stretcher as his corpse is removed, no photos of the aftermath at the Parliament that provide any evidence whatsoever that any shooting incident took place at the parliament. And there should be, there should be plenty. Whereas the corporal Cirillo shooting can be and has been comprehensively proven a fake, in the parliament it can be deduced that this incident was also staged. Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau and Corporal Cirillo were presumably offered a large sum of money to participate and disappear afterwards with a new identity, this task would not be challenging to an organisation such as the CSIS, the Canadian Security and Intelligence service. If the CSIS have overseen this operation, as seems at face value to be the case, they could act confident that whatever budget hit they took from paying for the two men to agree to be involved will be dwarfed by the budget increases and the new powers they achieve on the back of the psy-op.
When we see a funeral, we are trained to see that as positive confirmation of death, and to suggest otherwise is seen as an almost blasphemous insult. Sadly, the sanctity of funerals is not respected by the perpetrators of these operations. A funeral is not on itself evidence of authenticity of death, although many or even all of the mourners may have been sincere. (other than the politicians obviously)it is actually a good thing that an event was a hoax because it does not involve murder, only lying and fraudulent manipulation. Heinous deeds undoubtedly, especially Sandy Hook, but the crime (legal loopholes probably prevent prosecution of these cases) is far less serious than the mass murder for real that was the policy of the previous “custodians of the narrative”.Events like Ottawa are nothing less than an attempt to seize the hearts and minds of a nation based purely on deception. Some may see the Ottawa event as being a minor and insignificant case in either case, given that only two people are alleged to have died. That completely misses the point that two deaths were staged in order to manipulate and control the minds of 35 million people

Low Casualties High Emotional Impact- the Boston Template
There are tremendous parallels between the Boston bombings and the Ottawa shooting, these are not only from the same play-book, but seem to have come from the same scriptwriter.
The War memorial and parliament serve an identical purpose as the Marathon. The two events even share the same ridiculous slogan Boston/Ottawa strong.
I hope that Ottawans really are strong of mind and are able to detach themselves from their emotional response, their completely understandable and decent emotional response to this event and give these events the critical scrutiny they deserve. If these events turned out to be manufactured in order to manipulate you and begin the next phase of the installment of a total surveillance state wouldn't it be worth knowing? If you look and can confirm that the events were real, what harm will have been done?
[caption id="attachment_289" align="alignnone" width="765"] Who are these people and why were they waiting in the Centre Block?[/caption]
It would be very interesting to see an interview with some or any of the members of the media who were clearly photographed, set up in the Centre Block waiting for the gunman. It would be very helpful to be able to ask these waiting media members how it was that they came to be stationed in the Centre block prior to the event. Perhaps there is a reasonable explanation. It would be very good to hear one of them explain why they were waiting in the Centre block prior to the event.
This was a low casualty event but one that was designed with tremendous symbolic significance encoded into it for maximum emotional impact. Canada has not been under the umbrella of the mind control merchants with their psychological operations. This is the New World order mind control machine trying to take a new frontier. They are moving in Canada. It's that simple.
This whole thing does tend to indicate that the Canadian prime Minister is an apparently willing NWO puppet. He is the man anointed to help them take the next step in Canada. The event in the Parliament the following day was very well executed, it almost made me sad to realise that the whole thing was based on a grotesque fraud designed to manipulate the honest and unsuspecting Canadian people.
The entire Western media based in North America played this one as a grade A psyop. Al Jazeera international for example provided live coverage of the event was the only story in their Newshour, No mention was made of any other event. The BBC News that followed was the same. Blanket live coverage. Police running back and forth in the street for no apparent reason. Police constantly pointing their weapons towards the rooftops as if the “exercise” included a possible sniper. There did not appear to be any “security crisis” involving “active shooters” at all. Instead we seemed to be watching a drill, featuring the police and other security services. Even the controlled media were clearly puzzled by the police antics, as they charged headlong down a street, then appeared to receive an instruction to move back, perhaps the drill instructor told the police that for the purposes of the drill, they were no under sniper fire and should take cover. They really made it obvious. A genuine false flag attack is actually more credible as a counter-story, that and the lack of casualties are the “genius” of the new hoax psychological operation paradigm that has been used in (to name only the really famous events) the Aurora Batman Cinema shootings. The Sandy Hook shootings, the Boston Bombing, the Lee Rigby “murder“ by beheading” in London in May 2013 also fits the template of “hoax attacks.
Canada and Australia a Pattern of Repetition
Australia, under Conservative leader John Howard, did participate in the criminal aggression that has led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands at a bare minimum, and on March the 18th, the day before the attack on Iraq began, John Howard delivered a speech to the Australian Parliament justifying his decision. On March the 20th 2003, then Canadian Opposition Leader Stephen Harper delivered a speech in support of the Iraq war that the then Chretian Canadian government wisely chose not to participate in. Harper's speech contained many passages that were identical to the speech Howard had given two days earlier.
A member of Harper's staff was sacked when the plagiarism was discovered 2008. “Harper staffer quits over plagiarized 2003 speech on Iraq - Canada - CBC News “http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/harper-staffer-quits-over-plagiarized-2003-speech-on-iraq-1.756590 This video plays the identical passages side by side.
WTF?? Canadian Prime Minister and Australian Prime Minister, Same Speech on Iraq
Of course the sacking of the staffer was entirely unfair. The speech was not plagiarised, these leaders were both repeating the mantra of the day as dictated by their Neo-Conservative masters.
This pattern has arisen again this year with slightly different forms of the same psychological operation being conducted in Australia coming to a climax on the 22nd of September, followed a month later in Canada by the same psy-op, only far more dramatic and public, also came to a climax on the 22nd of October. The level of tyranny and oppression in Canada and Australia has clearly lagged behind the standard bearers of the New World Order in Washington and London, and the obedient Conservative leadership in Canada and Australia have been told that it is time to catch up with the leaders and really begin to put the required infrastructure for tyranny in place. They still have a long way to go but once you control the public mind anything is possible.
The response from Canadian truth-speakers has been extremely impressive and indicates that the New World order architects are facing imminent catastrophic failure. The architects simply lack the intellect and adeptness to be the 'masters of reality” they aspire to be. The Canadian authorities achieved first round success with the wonderful pageant in the Parliament on the following say, where Mr. Vickers and the Prime Minister received sustained applause. The emotional impact will wear off and what will be revealed to the entire Canadian public at that time will be a completely cynical, poorly manufactured big lie. There is so much high quality deconstruction and exposition of this event by Canadians and others on You tube that it was really hard to select which ones to use. This recent video gives a wonderful summary of the research into this event. This video alone makes it entirely clear what has happened. The courage and intellect shown by a large number of Canadian independent journalists on You tube has been extremely impressive and stands in stark contrast to a largely numb and mute Australia

Saturday October 25th,2014.
The Official Story
We are told that on Wednesday October 22nd, a disenchanted Muslim convert with a history of petty criminality launched a “lone wolf” terrorist attack on the Canadian capital Ottawa.
The man named as Michael Zehaf Bibeau is said to have begun by attacking a soldier named Corporal Nathan Cirillo who was on sentry duty at the Ottawa cenotaph (National War Memorial). The attacker is supposed to have shot Corporal Cirillo at least twice, (Barbera Winters states that two people were compressing one wound each) ) using a 30-30 Winchester Rifle before returning to his car, driving towards the Parliament nearby. Bibeau Zehaf then abandoned his car, ran up to another vehicle and seized this vehicle which he drove close to the Parliament, excited car number 2, ran into the Middle Section of the Parliament building, apparently pausing to shoot a security guard in the foot, where the Sergeant at Arms and former Parliamentary Security Chief Kevin Vickers shot him to death.
The incident came only two days after another incident involving Canadian soldiers and a purported jihadist terrorist. On Monday, another Muslim convert was killed by police after supposedly attacking two soldiers with a motor vehicle killing one of them.
A Motive Rich Environment
When Parliament resumed on Thursday the newly minted “hero” Kevin Vickers and the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper were greeted with a rapturous response.
These incidents mark the first acts of violence attributed to supposed “Islamic extremists” in Canadian history, although the police have apparently disrupted earlier jihadist plots, with the
“Toronto 18” plot of 2006 the most obvious example.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006_Ontario_terrorism_plot
The attacks came at an interesting time in Canadian politics, with n small contingent recently sent to attack the IS group in Iraq and the Parliament preparing to debate new “Security” legislation that would grant unprecedented powers to Canadian Law Enforcement and Security agencies.
All the supposed “Islamic terror” attacks in the West were either conducted entirely by Western Intelligence (September 11 and the London bombings) or with their complicity and augmentation. (World Trade Cntre 1993, Oklahoma City, Bali 2002) To see an “authentic” terror attack in the West would be a radical break fron the recent historical pattern of anti Western terrorism in the West.
Whilst at face value the Ottawa shooting story may seem relatively plausible, given that the self starting “lone wolf” terrorist only managed to kill one person, the fact is that each and every terror attack conducted under the banner of the supposed “Islamic Jihad” has been conducted under the supervision of Western intelligence agencies. This includes massive attacks such as the September 11th event, conducted entirely by Westerners, to petty events such as the failed “crotch bomber' and the “Times Square bomber” who simply placed flammable items into a car and set them alight.
The fact that the event in Ottawa did not cause mass casualties therefore does not indicate it's authenticity as a real terrorist attack conducted by a real terrorist.
Scrutiny of the footage and a critical examination of the media coverage of the Ottawa event indicate that the Ottawa shooting incident was a manufactured event, a psychological operation conducted against the people of Canada against the west, a classic utilisation of the “Problem, reaction Solution” formula designed to achieve the goals of the Canadian political elite and their New World Order handlers at the expense of the truth and the freedom of the Canadian people.
There appears to be a high likelihood that the Ottawa event is another from the Boston, sandy Hook school of false flags, where the entire event is concocted. I am extremely confident that the “terrorist” did not murder Corporal Nathan Cirillo, that was a lie. It does remain possible that the killing of the “terrorist/patsy” was authentic.
If we look back at the Boston bombing hoax, there was one very real element of the violence, the violence the State meted out against the supposed perpetrators was very real. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was alive and in custody and the police really murdered him. An eyewitness stated that the police drove repeatedly over the elder Tsarnaev's body, The deaths of Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his friend Ibragim Todashev (shot to death in FBI custody no less) are both very real as indicated by the photos of their corpses. The Ottawa incident may have ended in the death of Mr. Bibeau Zehaf, it did not begin with the shooting of Corporal Cirillo, that was faked. This is obviously an event entirely stage managed and controlled by the Canadian Security Services and their Law Enforcement colleagues before a pre-positioned and waiting media.
The Problem with the Gunman Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau.
There is a welter of footage that depicts Mr. Bibeau, we see him return to his vehicle after the supposed “Cenotaph attack” on Corporal Cirillo. We see him leave his car and run across towards the Parliament. We see him park this car and run into the Parliament building. We do not see him fire his weapon, nor do we even see him brandish it in a threatening way. We see a guy running round with a gun. He doesn't carry the gun with any intent and he does not fire it.
We are told the gunman is a terrorist engaged in a suicidal mission. This is one, only and final chance to “even the score with the infidel” Yet he apparently makes no attempt to attack the second soldier stationed at the Cenotaph. Indeed we know that the ceremonial soldiers deployed at the Cenotaph were in pairs.
Yet we have never heard a word about the other soldier stationed there. His identity, response and how he avoided the terrorist gunman all remain oblique. There is no photograph that even shows another soldier on the scene, and the “suicidal gunman's” failure to target the other soldier makes no sense at all.
The Corporal Nathan Cirillo killing scene, please note the police tape has been put up and the complete lack of blood.
The Killing of Corporal Cirillo appears to be a work of fiction.
The first thing that I would like to know is whereabouts in his body Corporal Cirillo was shot? The individual who performed mouth to mouth resuscitation upon him Lawyer Barbera Winters claimed he was shot twice. I cannot see any evidence that he was shot at all, and much that should be there is not.
[caption id="attachment_282" align="alignnone" width="745"] Please note the pristine white glove.[/caption]
He was shot and he died. Therefore, he must have either been shot in the head or torso, or bled to death. Blood-loss is the only viable cause of death of being shot in the leg, right? The legs are not essential to human survival like the brain or the heart.
Please note the pristine white gloves and the complete lack of blood.
It is clear that Corporal Cirillo was not shot in the head. It is also hard to see any signs of a wound to his torso and all in all, the pristine white state of his gloves indicates he was not shot in the torso and tells us that this event was manufactured by the team from Lies central whoever they may be.
Attack Conforms to Scenario Envisaged by Security Forces.
This is Boston redux in Canada, and the Quebec incident must come under severe scepticism also. Especially given the fact that a CBC Senior Correspondent
Adrienne Arsenault tells us (via Aangirfan) that the Canadian Security Services recently ran a “war game scenario” that involved an initial attack in Quebec followed two days later by an incident elsewhere in Canada.
Please remember that this is a nation with no history whatsoever of jihadist terrorism and suddenly we have two attacks that conform to a script that was part of a “war game” to “test:” the capabilities of the Security Services just as the Government is about to bring new Security Laws granting unprecedented powers to the same Security Services before the Parliament.. How absolutely extraordinary. How farcical. Oh and it all happened just as they upped the “terror threat level” from low to moderate.
Another odd thing about the “terrorist killer' on a suicide mission was that he made no attempt to fire upon or harm any of the civilians he encountered. This is odd but could be reasoned away. (He had decided only to attack Security forces).
But if we accept that, what are we to make of the fact that when attempting to enter the Middle Section of the Parliament building, the supposed terrorist killer on a suicide mission was confronted by a Security guard, whom he supposedly shot in the foot.
That all pales somewhat into insignificance when we look at the two films shot by the Canadian media from the final incident in the Middle Section that saw the death of the purported gunman.
The gunman commandeers a vehicle, (careful not to harm the occupant) drives the vehicle to the Parliament complex. He is being closely pursued by Police
The gunman enters the Centre block of Parliament pursued by Police. The incident is just developing and has been ongoing for no more than several minutes. So it seems more than a little odd that the Canadian media were assembled in the Centre Block, they were there before the Police arrived. Multiple camera crews.
The first police arrive at the Centre block Hallway under the eyes of a waiting and prepositioned media scrum.
These are the first police to arrive in the Centre block in pursuit of the Gunman, yet the media team were already there in numbers. Not only the camera filming what we see, but several others.
News teams were lined up in the alcoves waiting for the event to take place.
[caption id="attachment_290" align="alignnone" width="762"] The police arriving, the media waiting. Hmm.[/caption]
Waiting Media are clearly visible.
How on earth is it possible that this unprecedented event suddenly occurred and at least three media teams were waiting in exactly the right place to film the climax of the operation and they arrived before the police. It almost seems intentionally insulting the way they do things. It was also interesting that during this video.
Ottawa Shooting_ New Footage of Gun Fight (mirrored from Free radio Revolution as it wouldn't embed)
at the 32 second mark one of the waiting media personnel appears to mutter “this is fake”. The media are in place for more than a minute before the police even arrive.
It;s transparent nonsense. The latest installment of grotesque street theatre from the men and woman of the House of Big Lies.
The Corporal appears not to have been murdered at the Cenotaph, whether the gunman himself died is completely unclear. He may well have been genuinely killed, he may well have not been killed.
What we have seen is clearly simply a large scale complex drill parlayed into a big lie Psyop.
If the details of the drill are uncovered I am confident that they will show that the scenario involved a shooter in the parliament, the Cenotaph killing, along with a mall incident (apparently abandoned mid-operation) and a sniper perched on a high rise building. The scenario may also have included a gunman inside the Post Office as a member of the Military police was televised dragging a “suspect” from the Post Office afetr it was evacuated.
As far as the Rideau Centre Mall. I have a serving member of the Ottawa police force on CNN stating that there was an incident there, he offers solid and total confirmation, but states that there were no injuries. So what happened there and why has it been completely edited out ever since.
Constable Mark Susse”(spelt phonetically his name is spoken not spelled by CNN) “We have had three shootings.. one near the Rideau Centre.. We can confirm that there were three shooting incidents..no-one was hurt. “
Canada Shooting Ottawa Canada Parliament Shooting Soldier shot in Ottawa at War Memorial
I would suggest that the correct response to this rather despicable little Psy op would be for the people of Canada to resist each and every new Security proposal proposed by this Government, who are clearly completely cynical and untrustworthy emissaries and servants of the New World Order This lie should destroy the Harper Government, and destroy all trust in the Canadian media forever. How do you describe those who smile and lie in the service of tyranny and mind control? Wicked.
October 23rd, 2014.
[caption id="attachment_254" align="alignnone" width="300"] Flag of the Republic of Indonesia[/caption]
Joko Widodo, popularly known as Jokowi was sworn in as the President of Indonesia on Monday October 19th 2014.Jokowi is the seventh Indonesian President since the final eviction of the Dutch colonialists in December 1949. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indonesia. Although independence had actually been declared in August 1945, Indonesia is the world's fourth most populous nation with an estimated population of just over 250 million people exceeded by only China, India and the USA. According to the CIA fact-book, Indonesia comprises an archipelago of more than 17,000 islands, of which approximately 6,000 are populated. More than half the Indonesian people live on the island of Java (57%) and more than 80% of the population are Muslim, but the population is an incredibly intricate and diverse tapestry of different ethnic and cultural groups, the CIA fact-book states that more than 700 languages are spoken across Indonesia.
In terms of human and social development, Indonesia seems to have passed through the most difficult stages of development and appears to stand at the edge of tremendous growth and prosperity if the growth can be managed responsibly and with an eye on the long term. The CIA fact-book states that literacy is above 90% for both sexes that almost all the urban population has access to “improved” drinking water, but this falls to only three quarters in rural areas.
Who is Jokowi?
Jokowi is the populist and apparently incorruptible Governor of Jakarta, former mayor of Surakarta.
Prior to entering Politics Jokowi studied and ran small businesses with mixed success. As a politician he has clearly been a resounding success and as the leading figure in the Indonesian Democratic party Struggle. He belongs to the populist tradition in Indonesia, a faction that has essentially been engaged in a power struggle against the Indonesian Military (TNI) since the nation's foundation. This is a power struggle that has been dominated by the Military faction, General Suharto ruled Indonesia for more than 30 years after ascending to power in a CIA approved military coup in 1965.
The thing that really sticks out regarding Jokowi's background is that unlike so many of his predecessors and indeed his Presidential electoral rival Praboyo Subianto, he has never lived overseas as far as I can tell. He has not been “inducted”: into the mindset of the Western elite. He is completely lacking in the Oxford sojourn, the visiting fellowship at the Brookings Institute, the study at the Royal United Forces Institute. The IMF posting. You get the idea.
Predecessors and rivals. A Stark Contrast.
[caption id="attachment_256" align="alignnone" width="731"] The Departing President SBY[/caption]
By way of contrast, Jokowi's predecessor Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono managed two stints of military training in the United States. In 1975 he attended Fort Benning,and took the Airborne and Rangers course, he returned in 1981-82, and took the “ Infantry Officer Advanced Course at Fort Benning and in training with the 82nd Airborne Division. also spent time in Panama and went through the jungle warfare school. “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susilo_Bambang_Yudhoyono
Jokowi's electoral rival Praboyo had a similar experience, Praboyo attended the Advanced Infantry Officers Course at Fort Benning in the southern US state of Georgia in 1985.
[caption id="attachment_257" align="alignnone" width="691"] The Defeated Candidate Prabowo. His history is more than a little sinsiter. Will his backers seek revenge?[/caption]
The very candidacy of Praboyo was in fact something of an insult to the Indonesian people and a potent symbol of the power exerted today by the worst elements of the former Suharto military regime.
Praboyo appears to have been Suharto's most ruthless and violent henchman “disappearing” Democratic activists sometimes and on other occasions simply murdering activists as a warning to others. While many Indonesians may prefer to excuse or ignore the criminal excesses of the TNI during their Occupation of East Timor, Praboyo's crimes were committed against any and all who threatened the Security of the State, most of the crimes he oversaw were in East Timor, but the same wicked tactics were used against peaceful Javanese activists right up until Suharto's May 1998 fall from power Praboyo was trying to stem the tide of Democracy by imprisoning people and murdering them after having tortured them. “Troops under Prabowo's command kidnapped and tortured at least nine democracy activists in the months before the May 1998 Riots” and were “also suspected of organising the 1997–98 activists kidnappings in Indonesia of another 13 activists (who all remain "missing") between February 1997 and May 1998 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prabowo and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1997%E2%80%9398_activists_kidnappings_in_Indonesia
The Praboyo candidacy almost appears as though the “TNI faction” chose the candidate with the most criminal history because if he won, he'd have even more to lose from any loss of the immunity of the military.
the Jakarta Post and the Guardian-Divergent Views of Corruption
Commenting on Yudhoyono's legacy Margareth S. Aritonang writing in the Jakarta Post of October 20th, 2014 stated
“ During his 10 years leading the government, outgoing President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has developed the Indonesian Military (TNI) by increasing its budget and endorsing regulations that strengthen its authority, but has done nothing to make sure the military becomes more accountable to higher powers.
“Yudhoyono’s lack of concrete action to reform the TNI has protected the institution from law enforcement efforts, nurtured its culture of impunity and, in contrast to other state institutions, left it untouched by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK).”
“Unlike his obvious attempt to improve the TNI through soaring funding that reached Rp 95 trillion (US$78.4 billion) in the proposed 2015 state budget, the largest amount given to any state institution, Yudhoyono had apparently ignored plans to amend the 1997 Law on Military Tribunals throughout his leadership terms. “
“Critics believe that the amendment would lay the foundation for a progressive change within the TNI as it would allow external oversight to enforce accountability and transparency.”
“Nothing was heard of the fate of the amendment until today, although reports of soldiers committing crimes continued to touch the nerves of the Indonesian public, especially last year when 12 members of the Army’s Special Forces (Kopassus) brutally murdered four detainees at the Cebongan Penitentiary in Yogyakarta.”
“As long as the 1997 military tribunals law remains intact, the TNI will be able to keep dealing with the misconduct of soldiers as an internal affair.”
“Reform within the military institution will never take place as long as the [military tribunals] law is maintained,” Wahyudi Djafar from the Institute for Policy Research and Advocacy (ELSAM) said recently.
“A lack of control over the TNI’s enormous power will enable soldiers to take excessive measures in the name of state security,” he emphasised.
From this I think that it can be concluded that President Yudhoyono was rather reluctant to encroach on his former Military colleagues or take any actions against their wishes. This is a very perilous issue for Jokowi, if he displeases the TNI with reforms that make the military legally accountable, there is a strong likelihood that “rogue elements” of the Indonesian military will seek to destabilise the nation and the Jokowi leadership by engaging in a campaign of “synthetic terrorism,” and/or igniting sectarian violence in one of the many socially vulnerable areas of the vast and tremendously diverse nation.
The Guardian’s Simon Tisdall described Jokowi as “a political outsider determined to confront the moneyed, self-serving ruling elites of the nation’s capital “ the comment on corruption that follows is telling. “a country where corruption is said to be rife.” But the Guardian has not apparently been able to determine the veracity of these allegations at this point in time. They have heard the rumours but they are not yet sure!
The contrast between the honesty of the Jakarta Post as opposed to the obfuscation of the Guardian tends to indicate two obvious things.
1. The Indonesian people are sick of Corruption and Malfeasance on the part of public officials. The Military are still somewhat above the law and are apparently unwilling to be accountable to public officials or for public monies. (Jakarta Post)
“ exempted military personnel from being investigated by the KPK (National Corruption Commission) over any alleged misuse of the huge amount of state money granted to the organisation. In 2012, the Defense Ministry was in the spotlight over alleged irregularities in the $470 million procurement of six Russian-made Sukhoi Su-30MKK fighter planes that might have caused $50 million in losses to the state, an allegation quickly denied by the government.”
2. Western elites, are perfectly happy with corrupt military rule in Indonesia and the consequences faced by the Indonesian people are simply irrelevant.
President Jokowi will face a number of pressures from numerous power groups, both locally and internationally
Economic Reform-the Fuel Subsidy is Very Controversial.
Several Jokowi aides have indicated that one of the first Economic reforms President Jokowi intends to implement is to cut the government fuel subsidy which some describe as expending at least 14% and as much as 25% subsiding the lifestyles of the middle class. Joko claims that he plans to divert the savings gained by cutting the subsidy to Health and Education services and also towards improved infrastructure. Jokowi aides have criticised the outgoing President Yudhoyono failure to implement this reform. Will Hickey writing in the Jakarta Post this February had a different view of the issue. writing
“all Indonesian economic activities, from cheap discount flights to Bali, to buses, trucks and cars on the Jasa Marga toll roads to the gridlock in Sudirman and Blok M, to ojek (motorcycle taxis), to container ports in Surabaya and the electricity generated by the state power monopoly PT PLN, are predicated on the availability and low costs of subsidised fuels.
“Unfortunately, all subsidy reform to date — as studies by the likes of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) show — has only discussed a strategy for raising prices on the consumer.
“A 2012 updated International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) study titled A Citizens’ Guide to Energy Subsidies in Indonesia, mentions a problem with hidden producer subsidies (such as tax incentives, investment credits and domestic market obligations), but goes on to mostly indict the consumer as the largest culprit.
“The study does acknowledge that hidden producer subsidies are just too difficult to pursue. So that is the entire strategy: Ignore deeper issues and stick it to the consumer as “the rich” may benefit unjustly. “ ominously Mr Hickey notes that “No one is willing to take a heavy hand with the fuel subsidy issue before the election, but the markets will force them to do so after. “ The enthusiasm for this reform or these cuts is very strong amongst the Western Financial Papers, and we can assume that the objections to the subsidy from the likes of the Wall Street Journal (http://online.wsj.com/articles/new-indonesia-leader-looks-to-tackle-fuel-subsidies-1413793138) and Bloomberg (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-08-28/widodo-committed-to-reducing-indonesia-fuel-subsidy-after-rebuff.html) are not borne out of their concern for the car-less Indonesian working class or anything similar. It doesn't fit the models they proscribe.
Regardless of the merits of this change, the Widodo government is likely to face harsh judgement and coercion from the Bankers if they fail to cut the subsidy, and will probably face demonstrations and much internal anger if they go ahead. Jokowi's ability to work with these divergent interests without alienating either group will probably be his first major challenge.
International Relations. A Likely Secondary Priority.
Despite the thirty year stint under a CIA strongman, Indonesia is a founding member of the Non Aligned Movement (NAM), the major challenge of the Jokowi government will be similar to the challenge facing Australia and many other regional nations. The challenge is to manage China's ascent and the United States relative decline in as non-violent way as possible. It is not in the Indonesian interest that US China rivalry be allowed to descend into armed clashes of any kind.
There is little doubt that in International relations the Jokowi government will opt for moderate and conciliatory policies that seek to minimise conflict between nations. The foreign policy is likely to be business as usual, with other policy areas having precedence.
Everyone knows what Indonesia needs.
Indonesia 's needs and the needs of the Indonesian people are the same as anywhere else. Indonesia needs development and stability and the curtailment of political and military corruption will strengthen the state immeasurably. Indeed, rogue military elements, far from being the “protectors of the nation” represent the only real threat to the Indonesian state's stability and development along with their Western Intelligence allies. .
It is one thing for an individual such as Jokowi to be “clean” but ensuring that entrenched systemic corruption is addressed may well be beyond President Jokowi's reach. Ultimately President Jokowi will be judged on his ability to represent the interests of the Indonesian people in the face of the threats and demands of Western Neo-Liberals and the entrenched corrupt Indonesian power elite whilst maintaining peace and stability. We should all wish him well.

Thursday Spetember 25th.
Naive 18 year old shot by Police marks first local “War on terror” death. A grim milestone and a family tragedy.
Police claim two officers were attacked by Abdul Numan Haider, 18 with a knife, before police shot the young man outside a police station.
Tuesday September 23rd saw the first Jihadist terrorism related death ever to occur in Australia after a naive 18 year old named Abdul Numan Haider was shot by a Victorian police officer after having apparently/allegedly stabbed two police officers.
The deadly encounter took place outside the Endeavour Hills police station in Melbourne's East. Police had requested an interview with Mr. Haider apparently due to his recent brandishing of an IS flag at a shopping centre and posting online a photo of himself wearing a mask brandishing the IS type flag. Although given the mask it could be anyone.
According to the police this mild interest in Mr. Hider led them to attend Mr. Haider’s residence on Tuesday, during the day, Mr. Haider was not home, but they entered and had a look around. Mr Haider was contacted by phone and requested to attend Endeavour Hills police station for a chat.
According to the media, Mr. Haider was agitated prior to attendance at the police station, he was angry and his parents urged him not to go, he drove his vehicle, (a Brown Tarago) parked it at the Child Care centre across the road from the Police station . Haider is then supposed to have phoned the police and requested to meet outside the station. They agreed. The Victorian police officer held his hand out and Haider produced a knife apparently, stabbed the Victorian police officer in the arm before launching into a violent knife attack on the Australian federal Police Officer, stabbing him we are told in the head and chest, before the Victorian police officer produced a fire arm and shot Mr. Haider to death. That was the story until this morning the police began to mention that someone else may have been in attendance, some sort of handler.
The Victorian police officer appears to have been lightly wounded, the AFP officer appears to have been wounded seriously and has been described as being in a stable condition. I hate to be melodramatic and buy into the psyop but, it seems that we are on the edge of a precipice and we need this deeply unfortunate chain of events to end with this single tragic death.
Obviously, Western nations have done a lot of evil things in the Middle East over the pat decade. If you would look at the details of September 11th and other terrorist atrocities, you would understand that these crimes were fake terrorism, augmented by and sometimes conducted solely by Westerners, in order to justify the Wars and t w polkice state measures.. So if you want to oppose the Wars, the last thing you would ever do if you thought about it would be to take actions that actually add to the justifications for the wars. You don't fight evil with evil.
Nothing will be achieved by any violent attack in Australia, whether against civilians police or military targets. Australia has little influence anyway, but the actions would only feed Islamophobia and social division and achieve nothing but more support for the wars.
Last weeks raids did seem a little over the top, but ultimately one person was slightly hurt after a police officer punched him in the face. It was hardly a major crime demanding retribution. It is as if we are slipping into an unpleasant twilight zone, a parallel world of madness, ignorance and paranoia. Hopefully they can get their new police state measures, nothing else will happen and we can move on. AFL Grand Final week has been totally blighted by the ongoing threat hype and fear mongering. According to News Limited paper the Daily Telegraph imminent attacks are planned against numerous targets. Police admit the capacity is not there. The media persist.

[caption id="attachment_158" align="alignnone" width="300"] The real target.[/caption]
It was after reading an article in the Guardian that the penny began to drop. It was Ian Black's piece from September5th “Bashar al-Assad's pitch for anti-Isis pact with west falls on closed ears” that especially caught my eye.
“Signals from Washington suggest the US, with Nato or Arab help, would not face insurmountable difficulties mounting air strikes against Isis in Syria. Experts say talk of a "formidable" air defence system is exaggerated. The fact that US special forces were able to infiltrate Syria by air this summer in an unsuccessful mission to free hostages suggests it is less than effective. And Israel, an intimate US ally, is likely to have real-time intelligence it would gladly share with the Americans. Syria also has a record of thinking carefully before retaliating.
Assad will not welcome US-led air strikes on Isis on either side of the now irrelevant border between Syria and Iraq – unless they form part of a western rapprochement with him. Attacks will strengthen his opponents because the jihadis now control territory seized from other Syrian rebels. But he may not be able to stop them. The Damascus regime "will continue to view (Isis) as a useful tool for its survival," argues the exiled Syrian commentator Hassan Hassan.”
What madness it seemed to me, to risk the lives of US soldiers and pilots despite the Syrian government offer of co-operation. Why deal with the “not insurmountable” Syrian Air Defence Systems of a state that welcomed your intervention?
Syria will help US fight terrorism, says Walid Muallem – YouTube
and as far as the ridiculous conspiracy theory about the Syrians running IS. They should be consigned to the dustbin of history where they belong.
The Last Walk of Syrian Soldiers of the Tabaqa Airbase before Execution by ISIS
Syria clearly remains a key Cabal target and the immediate underlying purpose of the War against the IS group may be the violent overthrow of the Assad Ba'ath party government in Syria.
It sounds ridiculous, it is so illogical, but this is how I fear they are edging towards playing this, and this explains the bizarre resort to blatant psychological operations in the West, especially considering the many very real crimes the group have committed/ against a variety of groups in Iraq and Syria.
This seems to be the best explanation for all the ridiculous hype, with the entire Global War on terror being relaunched with IS as the new Flag bearers of the “menace”. The possibility that these fake beheadings and relentless hype are in preparation for a False Flag attack attributed to the IS cannot be excluded but is highly unlikely. Obviously there are also many long term “police state and surveillance” goals that are also being served by this hype.
Another 911 is simply impossible in the newly diversified and hostile media landscape. Even relatively small events like Boston and Sandy Hook completely unravelled . The bigger and more complex the event the harder it becomes for psychological operations to succeed.
It is far more likely that this tool is going to be used to engage in a War against Syria, a war of absolute madness as even if they succeeded (highly unlikely given Iranian and Russian position) they would undoubtedly be destroying the modern Syrian state just as they have destroyed Libya and leaving groups of jihadists to vie for power, as is happening today in Libya. .
Through a couple of sneaky steps and a routine manipulation of the facts , the War against IS in Iraq morphs into a war against the IS in Syria, which soon morphs into War against the Syrian government. The only way it will be safe for our aircraft to bomb the IS in Syria therefore will be to bomb the Syrian Air Defence Systems, which means also bombing Military Command and Control Facilities, which morphs easily into simply trying to wipe out the Syrian Government from the air as they did successfully to the government of Libya. You add the leaders of the State to the target list, and eliminate them. The fact that Libya has genuinely descended into a Somalia style failed state apparently does not trouble these serial vandals and pathological arsonists.
Syria and Iraq.
So we have to establish the IS as the worst thing since unsliced bread, (or at least al Qaeda) We have to establish this brand as being an immediate threat to Westerners via the Western recruits and the hoax beheading films.
Once we establish the brand, we begin to attack them in Iraq. Not a concerted or intense campaign, just enough to prevent them holding or attacking specific areas (Mosul Dam and Irbil are the obvious examples) Iraq has been “done”, there is no state left to destroy. Iraq is the end product, the goal. A weak, chronically divided state . Iraq is only a means to another end now.
At some point you state that in order to really “end the IS threat” we will have to attack their Syrian strongholds also. It will then be decided that we the wonderful enlightened West cannot possibly co-operate with Syrian government who have actually been under severe jihadist attack via arms and fighters funnelled into Syria by the West and their allies over the past four years..
Four solid years of blatant propaganda cannot be left to waste. Therefore we must bomb IS in Syria and we must not co-operate with the “beastly” Syrian government despite their offer to put all that aside and work with us against the IS.
So using some sleight of hand and some liberally applied sophistry, the IS threat gets them to their long term goal. They came within days of achieving their goal of directing the US air force against Syria exactly a year ago. Hundreds of Syrian civilians were murdered in the false flag chemical attack that was used to achieve that. But they failed. The Russians outwitted them basically.
Syria's decision to dispose of it's entire Chemical weapons stockpile in return for not being bombed by the US didn't get Assad off the “list” far from it. It only saw Putin himself elevated to a more “urgent” position.
Two months after the al Ghouta false flag failed to get Syria bombed after Russian diplomatic intervention the protests begin on the Maidan in Kiev.

Scotland the Brave?
September 14th, 2014.
“The United Kingdom consists of 90,060 square miles. David Cameron has fought tooth and nail for one of them” (the City of London)
Ian Rankin (via Aangirfan)
The Scottish Independence vote is only days away. When I imagined this event I assumed that the debate would be primarily in Britain,that outsiders would not seek to exert influence on the outcome. This assumption has proven completely naive. . Beginning with the US President in June, a multitude of Western leaders down to the most pathetic and clueless sidekick. have been voluminous in their support for Scotland remaining in the UK. The fear campaign against Independence has been reduced to utter desperation in the past week as Scotland's exit from the UK suddenly emerged as a likely outcome of the referendum. The prospect of Scottish independence clearly fills the London establishment with horror, and a what began as gently cajoling, turned into a series of bizarre threats, from both the political and financial wings of the establishment.
Both the cajoling rhetoric and the threats should be seen as the ridiculous and desperate gambit of a frightened, morally bankrupt establishment pretending omnipotence. Their pathetic behavior has instead revealed the mental fragility and malignant desperation of people who know their time is over, but cannot ever admit so, even to themselves.
Scotland Has a Distinct Political Culture.
Scotland has a distinctive political identity. The evidence for this lies in the fact that the Political parties preferred by Scottish voters are different than the political parties preferred by voters in the rest of the UK. The Scottish parliament comprises 129 representatives. The parties of the current UK Governing coalition, the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats, currently hold only 20 seats of these 129 combined, just above 15% . The three major UK parties combined, adding British Labour's seats to the other two parties only reaches 44% of the seats. In the UK House of Commons, the same three parties hold more than 94% of the seats. These figures make it plain. here is a markedly different and distinctive political culture in Scotland compared with the rest of the UK.
Further to that, it is also clear that because of Scotland's relatively small proportion of the overall UK population (less than 10%) this distinctive political identity struggles to find expression in the UK Westminster Parliament where Scotland elects 59 of the 650 members.
These facts indicate that the Scottish independence movement is based in much more than jingoism or petty tribalism, but arises from genuine and long-standing differences in political culture that have led to the marginalisation of Scottish voters within the UK political system.
Another noticeable thing is that Scotland has a number of serious social and health issues exemplified by the fact that the life expectancy for males in the East End of Glasgow is thirteen years fewer than for males in Iraq.
One of the massive benefits of a “Yes” vote would be the fact that Scotland would be forced to take ownership and responsibility for the economic and social problems and their solution. No longer could the “Southern bastards” in London be blamed for Scotland's problems. The potential for liberation arising from this one simple fact is immeasurable in my opinion. There is the potential for the whole mentality of the Scottish nation to improve greatly on this basis alone. As an outsider it seems obvious that internal social attitudes and norms must be at least partially responsible for some of Scotland's social problems. With independence the debate as to culpability and responsibility will be ended and all the energy previously wasted used for more positive ends.
One of the many ridiculous myths perpetrated by New World Order advocates is that the bigger and more distant a Government is from the people, the more benevolent and competent it will be. This is quite obviously nonsense. In fact the greater the distance, (whether physical or psychological) between the Government and the people the less accountable or understanding the relevant issues.
A national Government based in Edinburgh will have an obviously stronger knowledge of local issues, greater incentive to meet the needs of the people and generally fewer barriers than exist between the people of Scotland and the London government. This is true anywhere on earth. We all know that people in San Antonio, Texas know and understand better the problems Texas and Texans face than Washington DC bureaucrats, no matter how competent or well intentioned, yet we are exprected to pretend otherwise. The citizens of smaller nations actually have an advantage in this respect. After all, in a nation of one million, each voter carries far more weight than in a nation of 100 million. When it comes to national government's it could be argued that smaller is better, other things being equal.
The questions that the Scottish people should ask themselves prior to voting are very simple. They are:”Is the status quo acceptable?” The answer to the first question is completely obvious. Clearly it is unacceptable that the life expectancy is 54 for men in parts of Glasgow. The second question must therefore be “Could we do better?" People who answer “No” to the second questions, should logically vote “No” in the referendum. Those who answer yes should vote “Yes”.
Scotland's problems will not be solved by independence. Independence does however present the opportunity for Scots to assume responsibility and control of their collective future. What more could you ask for?

Oops They Hoaxed it Again!
Beheading Hoax Mk.2 Steven Sotloff.
There is a funny scene towards the end of the Monty Python classic “the Life of Brian”. A large group of prisoners on their way to crucifixion are greeted by a cheerful Roman soldier/bureaucrat, who greets the prisoners and instructs them, “Out of the door, line on the left, one cross each". One prisoner states “No, I am not sentenced to crucifixion, I'm was sentenced to freedom". The incompetent Roman bureaucrat has no idea the man is lying and says “All right them, off you go” Whereupon the man sentenced to crucifixion admits he has been lying, he too has been sentenced to crucifixion, the Roman bureaucrat scolds him lightly, they both laugh at the prank, and the prisoner resumes his place in the group of men about to be crucified. It’s a joke about bureaucratic incompetence and also peoples mindless subservience towards it. The reason the scene is funny is it's absurdity, it is ridiculous, no-one sentenced to be crucified who managed to talk their way out of it would ever possibly confess immediately and return to the condemned group.
The bizarre, absurd and fraudulent “beheading” videos of US journalists James Foley and now Steven Sotloff are truly Pythonesque in their absurdity.
Imagine the conversation.
IS jihad nutter enters the cell where captured US journalist is being held.
After greeting the prisoner and exchanging minor pleasantries, the British born jihadist nutter explains the unfortunate situation to the captured journalist.
“Your American government has disobeyed our orders to stop blowing our "brothers” up therefore, I am going to have to chop your head off on camera today in the hopes that the US government will discontinue Air strikes against the Caliphate,”
Captured US journalist. “Understood buddy, no hard feelings, is there any way I can help you blokes out with your propaganda message before you cut my head off?”
British Jihadist Nutter “As it happens mate, we have worked up a little speech we would like you to read for the camera, I have the script here, we think it's best if you can learn as much as possible before we go live. We will have cue cards, but it will be more natural if you can memorise it.”
Captured American journalist. “Not a problem, I will do my best, we will have takes available if I miss a line though buddy?”
British jihad nutter. “Multiple takes. Thank you for being so obliging in what must be an upsetting time.”
Captured US journalist. “Glad to be helpful buddy.”
British Jihadist nutter “ Excellent, listen, I have a couple of things to do so I'll leave that with you and I guess I'll see you at the beheading.”
“OK pal, I will have this thing down. I am gonna nail this script down, I really want to do a good job for you guys.”
British Jihadist nutter. “Excellent” Departs.
These men are journalists, they are not complete fools, they would know that the US is never going to change what it does based on threats to hostages from Jihadists. They would know that the videos would have the exact opposite effect, they would galvanise the United States public against the “Caliphate” make the need to destroy them and attack them seem more urgent and be more popular.
One interesting thing about this rather dismal psychological operation, is that the creators of these fiascos clearly tried to learn from their mistakes in the Foley video.
There are some minor improvements. They clearly decided that the lack of wind noise in what purported to be a Video shot outdoors was a problem, so the Sotloff video has far more wind noise. They seem to have simply procured a more powerful fan and turned it up to it’s highest level. They also improved the “death shot”, producing a fake video (rather than simply a photo as in Foley video) purporting to depict the corpse of Sotloff with the head sitting on the top.
The immediate goal of these Videos and this group are fairly obvious. Raise the level of fear amongst Western civilians, destroy the social fabric of the Middle East, mimicking the Zionist movement with Neo-Bolshevik Sunni Extremists and rejuvenate and 'renew the narrative" of the Global War on Terror.
These monsters have been manufactured and they have been hyped, but many of their crimes are very real. The fact that these videos are not authentic does not change that fact.
The sad truth is that the "IS" group are the enemies of humanity, they need to be dealt with sooner rather than later, and I support all of the Military Operations being conducted against them, despite the cynical and dishonest nature of this psychological operation. The way the USA watched passively as the IS looted the Iraq Army weapons stockpiles is extremely suspicous, especially the way they were allowed to drive the hardware back to their Syrian strongholds.
It i9s time for the West to abandon the operation they have been conducting against the Government of Syria over the past four years. It has failed, it has been a fiasco and has only deepened the instability and chaos in this region for no tangible benefit.
There is no doubt the Ba'athist government in Syria has committed many crimes over the years, there is equally no doubt that the Syrian government is not Sectarian, represents stability and is vastly preferable to any of it's rivals in Syria.
\Where the Neocons failed to get their War in Syria, they succeeded in Libya. Gaddafi, like the Ba'athists in Syria had many faults and committed many crimes, Libya is now a failed state. Revolution almost never achieves positive change, especially when it is violent. The people of the Middle East have suffered unbelievable torment and privation as a result of the deluded policy of chaos pursued by the West over the past decade. When things go wrong as in Libya, they simply walk away as if it had nothing to do with them. These policies are completely counterproductive and immoral and must end forever now.
The very idea that "We know best" is no more than an arrogant delusion of the childish megalomaniacs of the Western think tanks.
