Leaked documents show US Embassy in Ukraine is staging a False Flag
Column: Politics Region: Ukraine in the world
Evidence, including intercepted emails from “Anonymous Ukraine” and interviews with US special operations contractors, has led to the discovery of plans to stage a series of terror attacks in the Ukraine to be blamed on Russian Special Forces.
In a series of emails released on March 12, 2014, three in particular stand out. Implicated is Lt. Colonel Jason Kresh, Assistant Attaché at the US embassy in Kiev and Colonel Igor Protsyk, Chief, Bilateral Cooperation Division of the PKO General Staff, Armed Forces of the Ukraine.
Emails outline a plan for a staged attack on a Ukrainian air facility including maps of which planes are to be damaged. Other operations are outlined as well.
One thing is made clear; the attacks are to appear as though done by Russia. This is stated repeatedly.
One name, “Chief Mike,” mentioned as operational coordinator of a false flag terrorist unit is known to be a retired US Navy SEAL with a background working for the US State Department and as a contractor overseeing air transit facilities in Baluchistan/Pakistan suspected of involvement in drug trafficking.
This is the text of the first of three devastating emails:
Basil, you must quickly carry out proactive in Melitopol. There’s 25 aviation brigade. Must stain our sworn friends and good neighbors. I think you understand me.
Just proceed carefully and cautiously. 25 brigade combat mission out , so do not do them much damage to aircraft . There is already damaged aircraft , that He can do everything. Yihny board numbers you give. Remember, you need everything to be as real attack of the Russian Special Forces.
Brigade commander there is a reasonable man. Details of know he will not, but in extreme cases it can turn to. We did come.

General Staff, Armed Forces of Ukraine
tel +38044 481-5407
Cell +38067 407 97 40
e-mail: i.v.protsyk @ mil.gov.ua
The second email is copied to Colonel Protsyk, liaison with American and EU “security forces” working in the Ukraine. We were able to verify the identity of Pasha Tarasenko through his graduation records as a Ukrainian Army officer.
“Chief Mike” is identified as a retired US Navy SEAL who, in plain language, is tasked with supplying weapons and explosives for what is also clearly outlined, a false flag attack on a Ukrainian Air Force base.
By “scrap metal,” they are referring to less serviceable aircraft that are designated to be destroyed as outlined on the map conveniently supplied. The aircraft to be blown up are circled in red.
If anyone had wondered what kind of meetings transpire at the seminars held at the George Marshall Center for Strategic Studies in Garmisch, Germany, the high level of cooperation seen here shows how it has paid off in spades.
events1Oleg, an urgent need to make some noise on behalf of Russians at the airport in Melitopol. This should be done by March 15 . Sam understands why.
First of all you must contact Pasha Tarasenko. You must know him, he is a local Liberty and has a theme.
Before you arrive 10-12 boys from the Centre. Top fighters Trident. Chief Mike there, you should know it too. Details will know him. We need people to meet and provide everything you need.
Proceed with caution. Speak only Russian. 25 team is executing combat missions, so do not do them much damage to aircraft. There is a lot of scrap metal, with it you can do anything. Damaged aircraft you specify. It is essential that all was as real attack neighbor’s Special Forces. But without corpses.
Give me again your account. The money will come in time, do not worry.
See the appendix . This is an example of action. Decisions are made in person.
Above is the map attached, showing the location of the planes to be destroyed.
The third email is from the US embassy directly to Colonel Protsyk. In it, Lt. Colonel Gresh using his State Department official email account states in clear language how false flag terror attacks he is controlling are intended to bring about, not just military actions by the “Pentagon” but stage additional incursions by the CIA or “Company” as they are called on the Washington cocktail circuit.
I wonder who the “friends in Washington” are. Is it Senator’s McCain and Graham? Is he acting with approval of the Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State?
Is he, as indicated, acting on behalf of “friends in Washington?” If these friends are not directly “chain of command” under authority of the President of the United States, then the actions outlined in this and other emails are, in fact, insurrection against the government of the United States.
In 1805, former Vice President of the United States, Aaron Burr (best known for killing Alexander Hamilton in a duel), attempted a similar operation against Mexico. Burr was charged with treason but the case was dismissed when Supreme Court Justice John Marshall found the case insubstantial because of the lack of “good action.”
As this is far from the first false flag terror operation in the Ukraine in recent weeks, such a dismissal, should charges be brought against those involved and their “friends in Washington,” such charges would not be dismissed.
The offending document below:
Events are moving rapidly in Crimea. Our friends in Washington expect more decisive actions from your network.
I think it’s time to implement the plan we discussed lately. Your job is to cause some problems to the transport hubs in the south-east in order to frame-up the neighbor.
It will create favorable conditions for Pentagon and the Company to act.
Do not waste time, my friend.

The case for a war crimes tribunal against the United States and its European allies along with members of the current regime in Kiev for war crimes based on, not just these documents but evidence gathered during recent demonstrations is undeniable.
It is not for us to convict those involved but to recommend a course of justice that would lead to enforcement of the Hague Conventions as they apply.
Additionally, reasonable cause is given to assume that a number of offenses have been committed against not just the people of the Ukraine and the government of Russia but, in particular, the United States as well.
The evidence here is hardly all that is available. There is an additional trail of evidence tying these groups operating in the Ukraine, now clearly multi-national, in chemical weapons attacks in Syria not to mention the other operations referred to in these documents.
Reference is made to military operations using combat aircraft from the Ukrainian military. Who is being attacked? Under what authority are these attacks being staged?
Is the Ukrainian Air Force being used by Al Qaeda and her American friends such as Senator John McCain for “close air support” against the government of Syria?
Is anything else possible?
A final note: Who is going to supply the corpses?

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the few hundred.
"Forward, the Light Brigade!
"Charge for the guns!" he said:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the few hundred.
"Forward, the Light Brigade!"
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldier knew
Someone had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the few hundred.
Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Missile in front of them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell
Rode the few hundred.
Flash'd all their sabres bare,
Flash'd as they turn'd in air,
Sabring the gunners there,
Charging an army, while
All the world wonder'd:
Plunged in the battery-smoke
Right thro' the line they broke;
Cossack and Russian
Reel'd from the sabre stroke
Shatter'd and sunder'd.
Then they rode back, but not
Not the few hundred.
Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Missile behind them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell,
They that had fought so well
Came thro' the jaws of Death
Back from the mouth of Hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of few hundred.
When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wondered.
Honour the charge they made,
Honour the Light Brigade,
Noble few hundred.
We borrow the words from the epic poem from another long past war in the Crimea. A strategic piece of land with great significance. This aircraft was led to its demise in a well orchestrated feint. Flight MH17 was tracking the well adapted air corridor just used by 10 previous flights. Then for reasons unknown it was diverted north to fly directly into rebel controlled territory. The rebels were armed with the latest Russian surface to air missiles. The plane received an escort of two Ukrainian fighter jets. There was mostly no option for non compliance. The fighters would come with the message follow us or else. The plane was effectively under arrest.
As the aircraft got to within range of the rebel missile battery, both fighter jets immediately peeled off. The Malaysian flight was under the control of Ukrainian air traffic control flying their determined course. The rebels would have been expecting Ukrainian military aircraft to approach. The conflict zone was a no fly zone for civilian aircraft. The presence of fighter jets would only confirm that supposition. They fired. The Malaysian aircraft was struck. It exploded and crashed with total loss of life. That seems to be the best evidence to this point. Immediately the spin doctors got to work and turned the issue into an international propaganda operation of the greatest magnitude. The western NATO faction had to have a villain in Russia. This provided a perfect variation on the classic false flag theme. However, the Ukrainians made a serious error in their subterfuge. The video evidence they provided was time, date stamped the previous day. This was a well planned operation with poor technical understanding of the forensic evidence. It gets better or worse as your opinion manifests. There was a Spanish air traffic controller present. He tweeted what he saw to the world until his station was raided and communication equipment seized. His twitter account was also immediately suspended. The rebels couldn't do that. The list of suspects narrows.
Launch site? The BUK missile system photographed in Torez hours before MH17 was downed
Intelligence agency dominated corporate media had all their stories straight within minutes of the event. There were reports that Kiev knew and Russia reported the incident mere moments before the actual event. This has all the hallmarks of a global street theater production. It gets much more complex with every passing piece of evidence that is displayed. I started getting suspicious with one of the first photos I saw in the press yesterday morning. It was a collection of passports. The BUK missile launcher fires a very substantial weapon with a 70 kg. high explosive warhead never mind the weight of the actual missile being 3/4's of a ton. That alone would tear the plane to pieces with the impact velocity of Mach 3 or three time the speed of sound. The explosive would ignite the large fuel reserves of the jet. Gravity would add other stresses. The plane would be a sorry burning wreck which it was. The passports are pristine. I would suspect most people would carry their passports on their person or very close in the overhead.
The paper is neither burned or wet from the fuel or fire fighting foam. They appear to be miracle passports planted at the scene of the crime. Other more damaging evidence was planted at the scene of the crime too. It was bodies. I participated in disaster drill training in my early years. Our local scenario was our international airport that had a major jet crash with total loss of life. I've seen what happens to the human body under such stresses. Virtually every body losses limbs. In that crash only one retained a head. Torsos are shredded with impacts of various materials from explosive decompression, impact and in the recent case explosives. Bodies can be expected to assemble in dozens of small bags. Most of the these pieces are completely unrecognizable. We have set the stage for the next miracle of the crash intact and relatively undamaged bodies.
A view of the crash site on the local news. At the center right are two bodies in proximity.
In this closeup we see they are relatively undamaged. The arms and legs and heads appear attached. There are no burns. There does not appear to be any sign of explosive trauma. The clothes are also exhibiting little damage conducive to a plane crash, fire and explosion. Then comes the claim from rebel leader Igor Girkin that the bodies they found were deceased for several days and had been drained of blood prior to the crash. From the look of the above photograph I would suspect they were actually placed at the scene.
There almost appear to be two distinct crash sites or more likely scenarios. The above image shows the impact crater as the burning wreckage carved a wedge into the ground. It fits the evidence we have been given with regard to a shoot down incident. The plane was engulfed by fire and a constructive total loss. Of course some pieces would have separated and fallen without burning, but the existence of two entirely different debris fields raises other questions. The most egregious would be what if this was a two for one special?Missing Malaysian flight MH370 was the same type of aircraft with the same identification characteristics. Was it disposed of here as well? Its disappearance was a well crafted intelligence rendition. It is still the 'hottest' stolen plane on the planet. A mutually assured destruction would bury the plane forever.
Oil fields under the path of Flight MH370
Like most high end black ops there are always numerous ends tied into one event. There was the primary mass media assault on Vladimir Putin and the Russians being personified as EVIL to justify actions by the western banking syndicates and their vassal governments. The Russians walked right into that one by firing without properly identifying their target. The next major aspect of the hit was to take care of business as the gangsters used to call it and eliminate the distinguished panel of AIDS experts travelling to Australia for a major international conference in Melbourne. It was the 17th anniversary of a previous crash of TWA 800 also carrying Rodolphe Merieux, 27, son of the president of the pharmaceutical company Merieux Laboratories in Lyons, France which pioneered AIDS research. It was shot down. Years of denial covered up the murders. Numerous French Intelligence officers were on the flight as well.
Entrepreneur: Fatima Dyczynski, the founder of data company Xoterra Space, is thought to have been on board. Her parents are believed to be Australian
Flight MH17 had a relative from Flight MH370 on board as well. There was a British helicopter pilot returning from training in the Netherlands. He was based in Malaysia and flew to oil rigs for Shell/Petronas. Of course one of the first witnesses reporting the 'crash' of Flight MH370 worked on an oil rig. Another prominent candidate would be the CEO of a space systems company that did satellite analysis. Dead women as well as men tell no tales. A Dutch Senator was aboard as well. Over the coming days more and more details of the victims will come to light. However, the presence of previously deceased bodies at the crash site imply another extraordinary rendition flight. The worst case scenario is like the plane there was the two for one special where bothersome bodies from the previous Flight MH370 were no longer kept on 'ice,' but eliminated.
HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM. FLIGHT MH17 DISAPPEARS OFF THE RADAR ON A FLIGHT TRACKER SITE OVER GERMANY AT AROUND 11:20 A.M. WAS IT PULLED AND REPLACED WITH ANOTHER THE OTHER MISSING MALAYSIAN AIRCRAFT?

I'll be working on this story all weekend for the next show. Let us suffice to say all OPTIONS are on the table. The Ukrainians and the Russians are on the suspect list, but so is the United States. Very damaging information of the Sandy Hook shooting has been released that should bring down the Obama regime. A timely event in the news could save the day. There were 100 AIDS experts on their way to a conference in Melbourne, Australia. They would be HIGH value targets. Another facet of the investigation deals with what do you do with a HOT Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370? How about shoot in down in a grand spectacle. That's a possibility too.
A firefighter stands as flames burst amongst the wreckages of MH17 after it crashed, near the town of Shaktarsk, in rebel-held east Ukraine
Fortunately many passports rose out of the ashes as the ultimate phoenix. That seems rather suspiciuos. They're not burned. They're not wet from fuel or foam. How fortunate.

Poland Will Tear the EU Away From Russia
Simon Araloff, AIA European section
(This was the primary reason the Russians killed the Polish politburo. The globalists were complicit because they dared for an intra European Union. They were going to get Norwegian gas. That would not do. The V4 were pressured into compliance with the leader Poland assassinated. This article was purged from the net. That's why I keep copies in my time capsule. I did one of my best shows ever on the assassination on The Power Hour. It is a dead link now. However, my own Dial 'M' Moscow for Murder survives.)
On February 28 a two-day visit of Polish President Lech Kaczynski to Kiev will have started. The main issue on the negotiating table is a discussion of the initiative of Warsaw on maintaining the power security of the European Community. In several weeks, on March 23-24 this project will be presented at the EU summit in Brussels. Thus, the Polish government is trying to use the recent Russian - Ukrainian gas crisis in order to strengthen its own position in Europe. The new geopolitical initiative of Warsaw suggests that its neighbors in the center and in the west of continent consider an alternative option for the delivery of natural gas from Scandinavia.
Searching for Support of the Closest Neighbors
Already during last year's pre-election campaign the leadership of the ruling party today in Poland, "Law and Justice" (Prawo i Sprawiedliwosc – PiS), led by Jaroslaw Kaczynski, declared its adherence to the so-called "Visegrad Idea" . At the same time, after the unexpected victory of PiS in the parliamentary and presidential elections it was not clear how the new Polish leadership, a considerable part of the electorate of which adheres to a frankly isolationist position in relation to Europe, will be ready in practice to continue its course of strengthening the "Visegrad Group" (or V4) positions.
It all became clear at last, in the middle of January 2006, during the first visit of the present head of the Polish government, Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz, to Bratislava, Prague and Budapest. It is not a secret at all that up to now the right conservative government led by Marcinkiewicz, and created in October 2005, is still perceived negatively by many members of the European Community. It was an attempt to improve this image in the opinion of Europe, against a background of increasing internal political crisis, which forced the Polish Prime Minister to address his partners in the "Visegrad Group".
By the way, his predecessor, Marek Belka, in the exact same way also used V4 for strengthening the Polish position in its relations with Western Europe. Thus, adherence to the "Visegrad Idea", by virtue of pragmatic geopolitical reasons is a constant element of the present Polish foreign policy.
Predictably, on January 16-17 the main topic of Marcinkiewicz's discussions with his Czech, Hungarian and Slovak colleagues became the power security of the countries - members of the "Visegrad Group", and also of the European Union as a whole. The abovementioned aspiration to achieve legitimization from its partners in the EU forced the present Polish government to present a large-scale geopolitical initiative. And Warsaw, though secretly, prepared for itself the role of a rescuer of Europe from "Eastern threats". The recent Russian - Ukrainian gas crisis became a perfect background for it. The point is that currently the "Visegrad Group" countries are practically completely dependent on deliveries of natural gas from Russia through the Ukrainian route. So, the abovementioned crisis has directly infringed upon their interests. For this reason Marcinkiewicz's initiative was warmly welcomed in Prague, Budapest and Bratislava. Representatives of the Polish Prime Minister's office emphasized that, in their opinion, Marcinkiewicz's significant success was in the achievement of a concrete arrangement on joint actions of the V4 countries in the power sphere in the near future. The decision on development, on the basis of the Polish offer, of the common initiative on power questions before the summit of the EU planned for March 23-24, was accepted. This document will underline the idea of some kind of a "New Energy NATO", the purpose of which will be to maintain the power security of the continent.
Salvation Will Come From Scandinavia
The main element of the new joint initiative of the "Visegrad Group" in the field of power is the requirement of the diversification of energy carriers' sources. It completely contradicts the present German geopolitical paradigm to rely on stable deliveries of gas from one exclusive source – the Russian one. The Poles, and with them the Czechs, Slovaks and Hungarians suggest that the rest of the Europe consider other sources of energy supplies. Theoretically, the countries of Central Asia, and even Iran, could become such sources. However, instability in this region as a whole and, especially, escalation of tension around Iran, make this option invalid, at least at this stage. In this connection, as a real alternative to Russian deliveries of natural gas, members of the "Visegrad Group" propose using countries of Scandinavia, namely Norway and Denmark. The Czech Prime Minister, Jiri Paroubek, even declared after the mentioned meeting with Marcinkiewicz, that official Osloand Copenhagen see this initiative rather positively.
At the end of January the Minister of Economics of Poland, Piotr Naimski, visited Oslo and, having returned from there, declared that his department is studying possible ways of diversification of the energy streams. "Our strategy”, - declared the Polish Minister, - “will consist of concluding contracts with other manufacturers to provide a reliable supply to Polish enterprises by way of direct access to the deposits. And it means that we are searching for energy sources other than the Russian one".
According to official data, during the last years the Polish economy consumed about 14 billion cubic meters of natural gas annually. Thus, only 4.5 billion cubic meters (32%) are extracted from local deposits, about 0.5 billion (3.6%) come from Norway and the biggest part - 9 billion cubic meters (64.3%), the Poles get from Russia.
It is necessary to note that in the past the Poles already examined the Scandinavian option of gas deliveries. At the beginning of this decade the left government under Jerzy Buzek (1997-2001) negotiated with the Norwegian company "Statoil" for thelaying of a gas pipe at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. The negotiations brought the signing of a 25-year long contract for the delivery of 74 billion cubic meters of natural gas. However, the contract was terminated by the next Polish government of Leszek Miller (2001-2004). Miller considered the project would become too big a burden for the Polish state treasury. Today Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz criticizes his predecessor for geopolitical shortsightedness. As he said, the Norwegian project would have allowed Poland to receive today the needed gas without dependence on the moods of Moscow. Besides, the Polish Prime Minister considers that if this project had been realized, Russia and Germany could not carry out their design of laying a gas pipe at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. Marcinkiewicz insists on the revision, unprofitable to his mind, of the conditions of power cooperation with Russia – another heritage of Miller's epoch.
Meanwhile, even before the visit of the Polish Prime Minister to the capitals of the "Visegrad Group" countries, contacts of his government's officials with the Norwegian leadership have begun, aiming at revival of the former joint plans. The Norwegian and Danish press has rather vividly responded to the information on the Polish-Norwegian negotiations in the gas sphere. Marcinkiewicz's statement, according to which his country has already started construction of a sea terminal for liquefied gas at the Baltic coast, testifies to the fact that the optimism of the Norwegian pressmen is not baseless.
Support From Across the Ocean
Only two weeks after the visit of Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz to Prague, Budapest and Bratislava, his initiative on the creation of some kind of "Energy NATO" received active support on behalf of Washington. On January 28, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, the well-known American billionaire, George Soros, expressed his support to the Polish Prime Minister. As he said, the exploitation by Russia of its status as exclusive gas exporter for political ends should become a warning for Europe, whose dependence on Russian power imports grows constantly. Soros, together with Marcinkiewicz, called upon the European leaders to follow a joint course on the creation of a "defensive energy union". This union, in their opinion, should include also Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia, the countries suffering today from the Russian power blackmail.
It is too soon to judge the degree of influence of this appeal sounded in Davos on the minds of the European political leaders, especially those who have already expressed readiness to join the German-Russian gas project. At the same time it is known that at least two European politicians – the Prime Ministers of Hungary and Croatia - have chosen the way suggested by their Polish colleague. During their meeting in Budapest, which took place after the Davos conference, both politicians declared the hope of essentially reducing the power dependence of their countries on Russia.
In this connection they were informed about the signing of the contract on construction of a new terminal for liquefied gas on the Croatian coast of the Adriatic Sea. "We shall attempt everything to maintain power independence!" - declared the Croatian Prime Minister, Ivo Sanader, at the end of his visit to the Hungarian capital.
In the meantime, literally in parallel with Sanader's negotiations in Budapest, the assistant to the USA Secretary of State, Daniel Fried, arrived in Warsaw for discussion of the power security issue and the Russian deliveries of energy carriers. His task, among others, included the transfer of a totally unambiguous message from the White House on its support of the position of Warsaw and Kiev in their energy dispute with Moscow. This support, according to the high-ranking visitor, will be expressed in "conducting discussions" with the leadership of the European Union and the European partners of the USA in NATO about power relations with Russia. First of all, it concerns Central Europe, Austria and Germany. Berlin, Washington considers, has to reckon with the interests of its neighbors in Central and Eastern Europe not only orally but in practice. For this reason, the USA is going to support the Polish power initiative, and also the joining of the Ukraine into it. Besides, Washington is going to put into the agenda of the discussion inside NATO the issue of construction of the German-Russian gas pipeline. This issue became a central one during the visit of Polish President, Lech Kaczynski, to Washington at the beginning of February.
Breaking the Ice
Meanwhile, the Polish power initiative has already drawn the steadfast attention of the European Community leadership. The Minister for Foreign Affairs of Austria, Ursula Plassnik, ordered its department to consider the issue of diversification of the deliveries of natural gas to Europe. As it is known, currently Austria is the President of the Council of the European Union. One of the variants of gas deliveries being examined by the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is a transfer from Iran through the Adriatic Sea. However, today this option seems purely utopian owing to political reasons. Another suggested variant - Northern Africa or the Middle East.
Just one and a half weeks prior to the preplanned summit of the EU in Brussels, on March 14 Austria has already scheduled an extraordinary session of the Energy Ministers of the countries - members of the Union, in which the Polish power initiative will be presented and considered.

In The Man from U.N.C.L.E. The Vulcan Affair which is posted on the website in the video section we observed a cute little twilight language experiment. While leaving the diplomatic function, Solo calls UNCLE and reports. He is gassed by a booby trap wired to the odometer.
The odometer is shown in closeup with the speedometer. It is a low mileage vehicle. However the number are there to be put into the search engine algorithm. They are 7481.
It is all very cute. The first image result is a reference to an explosion Cherry Bomb. The scene revealed a small cherry bomb style explosion to release the gas. It also goes to numerous dress patterns which is subject matter for the show where Elaine May Bender Donaldson gets new stylish wardrobes for the party. Solo speaks to a woman at headquarters in a bikini. A woman in a bikini is in the search parameter as well.
When the tailor shop was raided there was a television monitor. One of the diplomats was the Minister of War. There are several war images. The action was in a nuclear plant where some of the other electronic images infer.
It is all good fun. However, the shadows from the filming are real. In our posting of the TV show The Avengers they were much more real. The closeup of the licence plate shadowed a real life recent storm. The show was about a weather weapon that could dump enormous amounts of water on an area.
A search with 7481 4814 resulted in a woman in a bikini as well as guages and large pipes like the ones Sole and Elaine were chained too. The was a train wreck involving an engine 4814 as well. It is an interesting game. All time and space may link through search algorithms and cast shadows to see through the fabric of lies. We start our search here of course. Stay tuned.

“The unipolar world model has failed. People everywhere have shown their desire to choose their own destiny, preserve their own cultural identity, and oppose the West’s attempts at military, financial, political and ideological domination.”
- Vladimir Putin
“While the human politics of the crisis in Ukraine garner all the headlines, it is the gas politics that in many ways lies at the heart of the conflict.”
- Eric Draitser, Waging war against Russia, one pipeline at a time, RT
What does a pipeline in Afghanistan have to do with the crisis in Ukraine?
Everything. It reveals the commercial interests that drive US policy. Just as the War in Afghanistan was largely fought to facilitate the transfer of natural gas from Turkmenistan to the Arabian Sea, so too, Washington engineered the bloody coup in Kiev to cut off energy supplies from Russia to Europe to facilitate the US pivot to Asia.
This is why policymakers in Washington are reasonably satisfied with the outcome of the war in Afghanistan despite the fact that none of the stated goals were achieved. Afghanistan is not a functioning democracy with a strong central government, drug trafficking has not been eradicated, women haven’t been liberated, and the infrastructure and school systems are worse than they were before the war. By every objective standard the war was a failure. But, of course, the stated goals were just public relations blather anyway. They don’t mean anything. What matters is gas, namely the vast untapped reserves in Turkmenistan that could be extracted by privately-owned US corporations who would use their authority to control the growth of US competitors or would-be rivals like China. That’s what the war was all about. The gas is going to be transported via a pipeline from Turkmenistan, across Afghanistan, Pakistan and India to the Arabian sea, eschewing Russian and Iranian territory. The completion of the so called TAPI pipeline will undermine the development of an Iranian pipeline, thus sabotaging the efforts of a US adversary.
The TAPI pipeline illustrates how Washington is aggressively securing the assets it needs to maintain its dominance for the foreseeable future. Now, check this out from The Express Tribune, July 5:
“Officials of Pakistan, India, Afghanistan and Turkmenistan are set to meet in Ashgabat next week to push ahead with a planned transnational gas pipeline connecting the four countries and reach a settlement on the award of the multi-billion-dollar project to US companies.
“The US is pushing the four countries to grant the lucrative pipeline contract to its energy giants. Two US firms – Chevron and ExxonMobil – are in the race to become consortium leaders, win the project and finance the laying of the pipeline,” a senior government official said while talking to The Express Tribune.
Washington has been lobbying for the gas supply project, called Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India (Tapi) pipeline, terming it an ideal scheme to tackle energy shortages in Pakistan. On the other side, it pressed Islamabad to shelve the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline because of a nuclear standoff with Tehran…
According to officials, Petroleum and Natural Resources Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will lead a delegation at the meeting of the TAPI pipeline steering committee on July 8 in Ashgabat.
…At present, bid documents are being prepared in consultation with the Asian Development Bank, which is playing the role of transaction adviser. The documents will be given to the two companies only for taking part in the tender.
Chevron is lobbying in India, Pakistan and Afghanistan to clinch a deal, backed by the US State Department. However, other companies could also become part of the consortium that will be led either by Chevron or ExxonMobil.” (TAPI pipeline: Officials to finalise contract award in Ashgabat next week, The Express Tribune)
So the pipeline plan is finally moving forward and, as the article notes, “The documents will be given to the two companies only for taking part in the tender.”
Nice, eh? So the State Department applies a little muscle and “Voila”, Chevron and Exxon clinch the deal. How’s that for a free market?
And who do you think is going to protect that 1,000 mile stretch of pipeline through hostile Taliban-controlled Afghanistan?
Why US troops, of course, which is why US military bases are conveniently located up an down the pipeline route. Coincidence?
Not on your life. Operation “Enduring Freedom” is a bigger hoax than the threadbare war on terror.
So let’s not kid ourselves. The war had nothing to do with liberating women or bringing democracy to the unwashed masses. It was all about power politics and geostrategic maneuvering; stealing resources, trouncing potential rivals, and beefing up profits for the voracious oil giants. Who doesn’t know that already? Here’s more background from the Wall Street Journal:
“Earlier this month, President Obama sent a letter to (Turkmenistan) President Berdimuhamedow emphasizing a common interest in helping develop Afghanistan and expressing Mr. Obama’s support for TAPI and his desire for a major U.S. firm to construct it.
…Progress on TAPI will also jump-start many of the other trans-Afghan transport projects—including roads and railroads—that are at the heart of America’s “New Silk Road Strategy” for the Afghan economy.
The White House should understand that if TAPI isn’t built, neither U.S. nor U.N. sanctions will prevent Pakistan from building a pipeline from Iran.” (The Pipeline That Could Keep the Peace in Afghanistan, Wall Street Journal)
Can you see what’s going on? Afghanistan, which is central to Washington’s pivot strategy, is going to be used for military bases, resource extraction and transportation. That’s it. There’s not going to be any reconstruction or nation building. The US doesn’t do that anymore. This is the stripped-down, no-frills, 21st century imperialism. “No nation for you, buddy. Just give us your gas and off we’ll go.” That’s how the system works now. It’s alot like Iraq –the biggest hellhole on earth–where “oil production has surged to its highest level in over 30 years”. (according to the Wall Street Journal) And who’s raking in the profits on that oil windfall?
Why the oil giants, of course. (ExxonMobil, BP and Shell) Maybe that’s why you never read about what a terrible mistake the war was. Because for the people who count, it really wasn’t a mistake at all. In fact, it all worked out pretty well.
Of course, the US will support the appearance of democracy in Kabul, but the government won’t have any real power beyond the capital. It never did anyway. (Locals jokingly called Karzai the “mayor of Kabul” As for the rest of the country; it will be ruled by warlords as it has been since the invasion in 2001. (Remember the Northern Alliance? Hate to break the news, but they’re all bloodthirsty, misogynist warlords who were reinstated by Rumsfeld and Co.)
This is the new anarchic “Mad Max” template Washington is applying wherever it intervenes. The intention is to dissolve the nation-state in order to remove any obstacle to resource extraction, which is why failed states are popping up wherever the US sticks its big nose. It’s all by design. Chaos is the objective. Simply put: It’s easier to steal whatever one wants when there’s no center of power to resist.
This is why political leaders in Europe are so worried, because they don’t like the idea of sharing a border with Somalia, which is exactly what Ukraine is going to look like when the US is done with it.
In Ukraine, the US is using a divide and conquer strategy to pit the EU against trading partner Moscow. The State Department and CIA helped to topple Ukraine’s elected President Viktor Yanukovych and install a US stooge in Kiev who was ordered to cut off the flow of Russian gas to the EU and lure Putin into a protracted guerilla war in Ukraine. The bigwigs in Washington figured that, with some provocation, Putin would react the same way he did when Georgia invaded South Ossetia in 2006. But, so far, Putin has resisted the temptation to get involved which is why new puppet president Petro Poroshenko has gone all “Jackie Chan” and stepped up the provocations by pummeling east Ukraine mercilessly. It’s just a way of goading Putin into sending in the tanks.
But here’s the odd part: Washington doesn’t have a back-up plan. It’s obvious by the way Poroshenko keeps doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. That demonstrates that there’s no Plan B. Either Poroshenko lures Putin across the border and into the conflict, or the neocon plan falls apart, which it will if they can’t demonize Putin as a “dangerous aggressor” who can’t be trusted as a business partner.
So all Putin has to do is sit-tight and he wins, mainly because the EU needs Moscow’s gas. If energy supplies are terminated or drastically reduced, prices will rise, the EU will slide back into recession, and Washington will take the blame. So Washington has a very small window to draw Putin into the fray, which is why we should expect another false flag incident on a much larger scale than the fire in Odessa. Washington is going to have to do something really big and make it look like it was Moscow’s doing. Otherwise, their pivot plan is going to hit a brick wall. Here’s a tidbit readers might have missed in the Sofia News Agency’s novinite site:
“Ukraine’s Parliament adopted .. a bill under which up to 49% of the country’s gas pipeline network could be sold to foreign investors. This could pave the way for US or EU companies, which have eyed Ukrainian gas transportation system over the last months.
…Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk was earlier quoted as saying that the bill would allow Kiev to “attract European and American partners to the exploitation and modernization of Ukraine’s gas transportation,” in a situation on Ukraine’s energy market he described as “super-critical”. Critics of the bill have repeatedly pointed the West has long been interest in Ukraine’s pipelines, with some seeing in the Ukrainian revolution a means to get access to the system. (Ukraine allowed to sell up to 49% of gas pipeline system, novinite.com)
Boy, you got to hand it to the Obama throng. They really know how to pick their coup-leaders, don’t they? These puppets have only been in office for a couple months and they’re already giving away the farm.
And, such a deal! US corporations will be able to buy up nearly half of a pipeline that moves 60 percent of the gas that flows from Russia to Europe. That’s what you call a tollbooth, my friend; and US companies will be in just the right spot to gouge Moscow for every drop of natural gas that transits those pipelines. And gouge they will too, you can bet on it.
Is that why the State Department cooked up this loony putsch, so their fatcat, freeloading friends could rake in more dough?
This also explains why the Obama crowd is trying to torpedo Russia’s other big pipeline project called Southstream. Southstream is a good deal for Europe and Russia. On the one hand, it would greatly enhance the EU’s energy security, and on the other, it will provide needed revenues for Russia so they can continue to modernize, upgrade their dilapidated infrastructure, and improve standards of living. But “the proposed pipeline (which) would snake about 2,400 kilometers, or roughly 1,500 miles, from southern Russia via the Black Sea to Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary and ultimately Austria. (and) could handle about 60 billion cubic meters of natural gas a year, enough to allow Russian exports to Europe to largely bypass Ukraine” (New York Times) The proposed pipeline further undermines Washington’s pivot strategy, so Obama, the State Department and powerful US senators (Ron Johnson, John McCain, and Chris Murphy) are doing everything in their power to torpedo the project.
“What gives Vladimir Putin his power and control is his oil and gas reserves and West and Eastern Europe’s dependence on them,” Senator Johnson said in an interview. “We need to break up his stranglehold on energy supplies. We need to bust up that monopoly.” (New York Times)
What a bunch of baloney. Putin doesn’t have a monopoly on gas. Russia only provides 30 percent of the gas the EU uses every year. And Putin isn’t blackmailing anyone either. Countries in the EU can either buy Russian gas or not buy it. It’s up to them. No one has a gun to their heads. And Gazprom’s prices are competitive too, sometimes well-below market rates which has been the case for Ukraine for years, until crackpot politicians started sticking their thumb in Putin’s eye at every opportunity; until they decided that that they didn’t have to pay their bills anymore because, well, because Washington told them not to pay their bills. That’s why.
Ukraine is in the mess it’s in today for one reason, because they decided to follow Washington’s advice and shoot themselves in both feet. Their leaders thought that was a good idea. So now the country is broken, penniless and riven by social unrest. Regrettably, there’s no cure for stupidity.
The neocon geniuses apparently believe that if they sabotage Southstream and nail down 49 percent ownership of Ukraine’s pipeline infrastructure, then the vast majority of Russian gas will have to flow through Ukrainian pipelines. They think that this will give them greater control over Moscow. But there’s a glitch to this plan which analyst Jeffrey Mankoff pointed out in an article titled “Can Ukraine Use Its Gas Pipelines to Threaten Russia?”. Here’s what he said:
“The biggest problem with this approach is a cut in gas supplies creates real risks for the European economy… In fact, Kyiv’s efforts to siphon off Russian gas destined to Europe to offset the impact of a Russian cutoff in January 2009 provide a window onto why manipulating gas supplies is a risky strategy for Ukraine. Moscow responded to the siphoning by halting all gas sales through Ukraine for a couple of weeks, leaving much of eastern and southern Europe literally out in the cold. European leaders reacted angrily, blaming both Moscow and Kyiv for the disruption and demanding that they sort out their problems. While the EU response would likely be somewhat more sympathetic to Ukraine today, Kyiv’s very vulnerability and need for outside financial support makes incurring European anger by manipulating gas supplies very risky.” (Can Ukraine Use Its Gas Pipelines to Threaten Russia, two paragraphs)
The funny thing about gas is that, when you stop paying the bills, they turn the heat off. Is that hard to understand?
So, yes, the State Department crystal-gazers and their corporate-racketeer friends might think they have Putin by the shorthairs by buying up Ukraine’s pipelines, but the guy who owns the gas (Gazprom) is still in the drivers seat. And he’s going to do what’s in the best interests of himself and his shareholders. Someone should explain to John Kerry that that’s just how capitalism works.
Washington’s policy in Ukraine is such a mess, it really makes one wonder about the competence of the people who come up with these wacko ideas. Did the brainiacs who concocted this plan really think they’d be able to set up camp between two major trading partners, turn off the gas, reduce a vital transit country into an Iraq-type basketcase, and start calling the shots for everyone in the region?
Europe and Russia are a perfect fit. Europe needs gas to heat its homes and run its machinery. Russia has gas to sell and needs the money to strengthen its economy. It’s a win-win situation. What Europe and Russia don’t need is the United States. In fact, the US is the problem. As long as US meddling persists, there’s going to be social unrest, division, and war. It’s that simple. So the goal should be to undermine Washington’s ability to conduct these destabilizing operations and force US policymakers to mind their own freaking business. That means there should be a concerted effort to abandon the dollar, ditch US Treasuries, jettison the petrodollar system, and force the US to become a responsible citizen that complies with International law.
It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen, mainly because everyone is sick and tired of all the troublemaking.

This Argentina Netherlands World Cup Google Doodle had me stumped somewhat. However, many times work in other areas opens the door with the appropriate key. While sharing the moon with Agent 99, she reminded me of the great full moon arriving August 10 11 next month. It will be the closest of the series of what is termed the Supermoons. It arrives on the west coast at 11:09 a.m. Pacific 6:09 GMT. In numerology of course the reverse 9/11 has significance. The New World Order are nothing new; ancient pagan rights are their creed. In the Wiccan tradition great ceremonies are performed. It is a time for cleansing and 'change.' What greater cleansing than the human race? What greater 'change' than the destruction of the old and the introduction of the New World Order.
The aliens are watching the match from space, but from the illustration of the Earth they appear to be the distance of the moon's close approach. The actual distance of the closest approach will be 221,765 miles. That is meaningless to everything except the shadow language which is very clear. The search algorithm returns the Stamp Act of 1765 on March 22nd the illustrious 322 of Skull & Bones fame. Americans without a grounding in history may not even realize that this was the event that precipitated The Revolutionary War. The British imposed a tax on everything used in the colonies. Riots broke out in Boston getting the ball rolling.
The message is very clear. The GO of Google at the left is the command to initiate the 'change' under the power of the full moon. The Satanists had many blood rituals concerning the moon that included the drinking of blood and sacrifice. This is not something to be taken lightly. The movement of the 'O' or moon to a lower plane allows the GO to connect with the 'G.' That should strike you as very symbolic if you are familiar with Bible prophecy. GOG is the leader of the prophetic war to come that may be on the horizon. Ezekial called it the War of Gog and Magog. Russia and Israel have been the primary interpretations in this prophecy.
1 Now the word of the LORD came to me, saying
2 "Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
3 and say, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal."'
This is the great game of the ages. The Netherlands represents the western system. Argentina represents the new system of finance the BRICS as she stands for admission at the behest of Russia the long anticipated MAGOG. The present New World Order of GOG is clearly defined by God. The world is experiencing tension on the faults of this event where Russia is aligned against the Ukraine. Israel is waging war on Gaza. With every increase in technology, it doesn't take much to light the spark of a broad ranging conflict. The globalists are working overtime to start the appropriate false flag nuclear event if possible. Control of the planet and life as we know it are at stake. The GLE is generally understood to be Graphic Layout Engine. It creates prospective timelines in cyberspace.
"Quaternion Eagle", coat of arms of the Holy Roman Empire (after a 1510 woodcut by Hans Burgkmair)
A golden bust of Frederick I, given to his godfather Count Otto of Cappenberg in 1171. It was used as a reliquary in Cappenberg Abbey and is said in the deed of the gift to have been made "in the likeness of the emperor".
Our bust of Frederick is represented by the orange alien with only a third eye representing The Netherlands.
One of the aliens has three eyes. The other has only one, but it is located in the position of the infamous third all seeing eye. It represents the awakening or prophetic vision of the unfolding future event. In the Game of Thrones the three eyed raven watches over the world. However, the raven is a dark omen. In a modern context when ravens cease to fly around Mount Untersberg where Frederick Barbarossa Holy Roman Emperor was said to being sleeping, he will awake and Germany will be restored to greatest. Germany is the heart of Europa. Barbarossa was the codename of the invasion of Russian in WWII. For those with eyes to see, there is much to see.
The sequence of pyramids and round buttons on the right side of the doodle represent the Great pyramids of Giza and their target stars in my opinion. That must play a great part in the symbolism. There are the greater pyramids at the top and the lesser ones beneath.
However, the blind lead the blind upon this Earth. The visionaries are either maligned or ignored, but at what cost? There is something BIG planned by our New World Order despots. They may very well have tried to initiate it by the light of the full moon next month. Our task is to see the shadows of the twilight language and head them off at the pass. This is where we excel. Timelines are altered for the benefit of humanity. That is the highest level of the great game. You are encouraged to participate.

While untold millions fascinate themselves with the World Cup matches accepting the bread and circuses strategy of the Roman Empire concept of rule, we here at the Cafe have marched to a different drummer. We apply ourselves to the shadow language of the Google Doodles related to same. The tell the story of the hidden spectacle of world global domination. Concealed therein are significant truths not spoken of clearly. As a case in point this cute little doodle speaks volumes.
We see the letter 'r' as the Russian Empire. Much of the world is lined up against them because they have little interest in the corrupt western debt slave banking system. The warning signs are rising significantly to the breaking point. The stress signs are obfuscated by the games. Few see the pressure rising or the potential for conflict. But it has always been that way in history. Visionaries are ignored and maligned. In this doodle Russia draws a line in the sand as it is termed and challenges the western backing system by applying shaving cream to its face and raising a razor to give it a shave. The implied slang is a distinct challenge to the system by creating an alternative system the BRICS who will be meeting soon in Brazil for the other match for the Dominion of Dollars.
R Shave is a grooming establishment in London, Ontario. It could shadow the home of the bankers. They, too, are apt to give account holders a shave as bailins become the order of the day. The bankers will just take your money to serve the system a trifle longer until the final collapse.
G Beard is George Miller Beard. He was a US Navy surgeon who served in the Civil War about the gunboat New London. With this we get another reference to the London banking syndicate. He specialized s a neurologist and developed the term neurasthenia a mechanical weakness of the nerves. There are mechanical weaknesses in the financial system that needs to be corrected. He lobbied for the insane and studied non insane disorders like the reflex action. As the razor gets closer we may see more nervous disorders. The results of a collapse will just spring upon us. New London is also home base for the US Coast Guard and US Navy submarine services. They will be active along the line.
It must have come as a wonder to many observers that the letters of the doodle have a distinct letter 'V' on them. That is very significant. The possibilities are immense. Of course my preferred choice would be V for Vendetta. The O's of course represent OV. The first reference is Ov and Yidoni a scriptural reference to witchcraft. Our system does delve into the black magic that will bring no reward. It is to be shaved as well. The second OV is the suffix to Russian names meaning belonging to. The line has a Russian element and a dark magic western element at odds.
GV has a few interesting applications as well like Google Voice and King George V implying the British monarchy which is really German. Gianni Versace brings a label of western capitalism to the fore like the LV with Louis Vuitton. Our labels have become our life. We serve the beast with our adoration and our money. The money is used against us setting the stage for the shave. In Greece they called it the haircut.
EV has a multitude of meanings too. Embedded Value and Enterprise Value can reference economic issues at risk. There is an EV in communications. There is an EV in computer security. Electro-Voice makes amplifiers, speakers and microphones all necessities in the age of snooping. However, L. Frank Baum's Land of Ev in the Oz series of stories suits us best. The allegory of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz concerns the hidden Wizard of Oz controlling the system with the Federal Reserve system. Dare to cross the line? Open your minds. Change your programming.

In this doodle for the Germany Brazil match in the World Cup we have a representation of the eternal struggle for global supremacy of the financial system. Brazil representing the BRIC nations vollies the ball or globe with one of the leaders of the other side Germany representing the European banking houses. It is a titanic struggle. That is the real game. What happens on the field is symbolic but child's play by comparison. The global system of payments and accounts is the bread and butter of all people. It is our existence. As the pressure surrounding the coming financial storm rises, many will be vanquished. The seizure of assets by the banks has been codified. Everything is up for grabs. That game isn't discussed much.
One of the key elements in the production of Volkswagens is that they are produced in Brasil as well as in Germany. It is an unusual irony that competing systems have the same industrial base. They are locked in financial combat a game to be decided in the boardrooms. The BRIC factories will be able to market their goods after a Euro collapse and keep in the game with their associated nations.
There are two Brasilian soccer beetles that are the rage. The issue of the shadow would be on the specific numbers that can be used in the search algorithm. They are the licence plates. They do provide some interesting results. CYZ is the international code for Cauayan Airport in the Philippines. The algorithm also took us to The Book of Ruth in Hebrew. Page XXV references the year of its writing as 4894 A.M. or 1136 A.D. Of course the numerology couldn't be more clear with variations of 9/11, 33, and 666. There were also references to a railway in India and an oil circulation pump.
DBY 0715 yields far more interesting results. DBY is the railway location code for Derby. It results in a Czech Air Force W3A Sokol helicopter. Most interesting is the search parameters are found in a report for the Zion Nuclear Power Station near Chicago. Since Zion has a reference to Israel and many end times prophecies that is very significant. Armed struggle has been going on for the last few days. The Book of Ruth deals with a time of famine. The nuclear issue could speak of war or false flag terror. There are reports of nuclear material being captured by ISIS in Iraq. If the shadows intersect, could an oil pump be an issue at the plant?
The Argentina vs Netherlands ant doodle is rather unique as they go. The goalie appears as the letter 'o.' The crossbar blocks the shot. The ball rolls to the goal line where the ant measures the distance. He waves the red flag signifying that there was no goal. The attempt to score was unsuccessful. The red flag still has ominous overtones as an attack signal meaning no one will be spared. It is ironic the game ended in a shootout. This was a theme of the shot. The color is Argentina's national color signifying their victory. Was it rigged? These are strange days indeed.
