Over one million Iraqis have met violent deaths as a result of the 2003 invasion, according to a study conducted by the prestigious British polling group, Opinion Research Business (ORB). These numbers suggest that the invasion and occupation of Iraq rivals the mass killings of the last century"the human toll exceeds the 800,000 to 900,000 believed killed in the Rwandan genocide in 1994, and is approaching the number (1.7 million) who died in Cambodia's infamous "Killing Fields" during the Khmer Rouge era of the 1970s.

"Obama is restlessly heading towards war in Syria like Bush was heading towards war in Iraq. Like in Iraq, this war would be illegitimate and Obama will become Bush's clone," Alexei Pushkov


 Source says: America would need to make well over $1 Trillion in profit from the war. The best way for a country to make money off a war directly is by selling weapons and equipment to the side it supports.

Let's take an example from the Iraq and Afghan wars, which allocated some $138 billion of U.S. taxpayer money to such companies, according to International Business Times. The number one recipient of such governmental contracts is KBR, Inc., a Houston-based engineering and construction firm focusing on energy " a firm that is the sister company of Halliburton Co.. The company received $39.5 billion in Iraq-related contracts " including a good amount of deals done without competing bids. Who was the CEO of Halliburton from 1995 to 2000 and was later our country's VP? Dick Cheney. I think you get the picture.

An astonishing photograph of John Kerry having a cozy and intimate dinner with Bashar al-Assad has emerged at the moment the U.S Secretary of State is making the case to bomb the Syrian dictator's country and remove him from power.

Kerry, who compared Assad to Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein yesterday, is pictured around a small table with his wife Teresa Heinz and the Assads in 2009.

Assad and Kerry, then a Massachusetts senator, lean in towards each other and appear deep in conversation as their spouses look on.

A waiter is pictured at their side with a tray of green drinks, believed to be lemon and crushed mint.

Relaxed: A waiter carries over a tray of drinks, which appear to look like cocktails

The picture was likely taken in February 2009 in the Naranj restaurant in Damascus, when Kerry led a delegation to Syria to discuss finding a way forward for peace in the region.

While President Barack Obama has softened his military threat against Syria by putting the question to Congress and guaranteeing at least a week's delay, Kerry remains outspoken about the dangers posed by the Syrian regime.

Another possible reason for deciding to be in charge of thwarting all evil, a role the U.S. has chosen to take on, is for reputation. A reputation of a country and the power they possess " or are believed to possess " is of course of the highest importance on such global chessboards. The most common belief is that a country like the U.S. (and, in this situation, Britain and France) is after two things and two things only: money and power.

Why not do that while making money and holding on to your reputation? Making money, gaining power and emphasizing one's reputation, while projecting an image of saintliness is a great game plan. Unfortunately, the line between moral and immoral tends to get blurred the deeper you get into politics...

 Why is it that the USA like to interfere with other countries...why they not attacking NORTH KOREA??!  ...Countries don't go to war for no reason...People need to overlook the fact that we're invading a country, and look at the true reason why...After ten years of the U.S. Invasion, the Afghan and Iraqi democracy is still limited and its future looks gray. Bomb blasts are still a regular occurrence in Baghdad. Ordinary Iraqis are not experiencing benefits from democracy. It is still an unstable country run by the sectarian-driven and corrupt political elite. Change was imposed on Iraq, not privileged, and was followed by civil war... USA needs a lesson as they got in Vietnam!..

All of these are no revolution , no rebel for betterment of life . Everthing from Iraq , syria , egypt everything related to crap sectarian violence and dominance of religious extremism. Even interesting to see many arab countries side on the line of sectarian alliance. In the end many countries goes into the gulp of invasion from outsiders and nothing else.

Take aim: Chinese inventor creates contraption to help you Pee Straight (and yes, it is for women too)

  • The Pee Straight device has gone on sale in Shenzhen, southern China
  • A new law could see those who make a mess in the toilet fined $15

It's a minor misdemeanour that lands millions of men across the world in trouble with their wives.

But help could finally be here for those who miss the mark and wet the toilet seat while relieving themselves, thanks to a Chinese invention.

The Pee Straight contraption is effectively a standard funnel attached to a 10 inch pipe designed to help both men and women with their aim.

Take aim: Two Chinese women sell the Pee Straight invention outside a public toilet in the city of Shenzhen

The law also punishes anyone who is found grafittiing, smoking or littering public loos.

As well as helping to keep Shenzhen's toilets sparkling, the inventor also claims that the Pee Straight affords its user a degree of privacy while at the urinal.

The device comes in male and female versions, with the women's having a shorter pipe.

Handy: The devices have been introduced in the wake of a new law that could see residents of the city fined $15 if they make a mess while relieving themselves

According to NBC News, city officials wouldn't comment on whether on not anyone had been fined under the new law.

While many took to social networking sites in China to ridicule both the new law and the subsequent invention, others were clearly impressed.

One user urged the inventor to have the device patented as soon as possible on Weibo, China's answer to Twitter.

Shenzhen was recently declared the world's most unfriendly city by Conde Nast Traveller magazine.

What Happened to the "Global War on Terrorism"? The U.S. is "Fighting for Al Qaeda" in Syria.

al qaedaAmericans have been repeatedly told that Al Qaeda under the helm of the late Osama bin Laden was responsible for the 9/11 attacks.

Formulated in the wake of the tragic events of september 11, 2001, the U.S. and its allies launched a "Global War on Terrorism" (GWOT) directed against the numerous "jihadist" Al Qaeda affiliated terror formations in the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia and South East Asia. The first stage of the "Global War on Terrorism" was the bombing and invasion of Afghanistan.

In the wake of 9/11, the" Global War on Terrorism" served to obfuscate the real economic and strategic objectives behind the US-led wars in the Middle East and Central Asia.

The Patriot legislation was implemented. The national security doctrine stated unequivocally that the American Homeland was to be protected against "Islamic terrorists".

For the last 13 years, war on terrorism rhetoric has permeated political discourse at all levels of government. Al Qaeda related threats and occurrences are explained -by politicians, the corporate media, Hollywood and the Washington think tanks- under a single blanket "bad guys" heading, in which Al Qaeda ("the outside enemy of America") is casually and repeatedly pinpointed as "the cause" of numerous terror events around the World.

But somehow, in the last few months, this  "Al Qaeda paradigm" has shifted. The American public has become increasingly skeptical regarding the validity of the "Global War on Terrorism"

In recent months, with the unfolding events in Syria, something rather unusual has occurred, which has had a profound impact on the public's perception and understanding of Obama's "Global War on Terrorism".

The US government is actively and openly supporting Syria's Al Nusrah, the main fighting force affiliated to al Qaeda, largely composed of foreign mercenaries.

Tax dollars are relentlessly channeled to the "rebels". In turn, Secretary of State John Kerry meets with rebel commanders who oversee the Al Qaeda affiliated entity.

Is this part of a "new normal": the unity of opposites whereby "terrorism" and "counter-terrorism" are merged into a single foreign policy focus?

Is it "politically correct" for a US Senator to mingle with leaders of a terrorist organization, while at the same time paying lip service to the "Global War on Terrorism"?

While this may be "business as usual" for the US Secretary of State, American servicemen and women are now "refusing to fight" a war in favor of terrorism under the emblem of the "Global War on Terrorism".

Channeling money and weapons to Al Qaeda in Syria is carried out "in the open", via the US State Department and the Pentagon rather than in the context of a covert CIA operation.

John McCain enters Syria illegally and poses for photo ops with Al Qaeda leaders.

The Movement within the US Armed Forces

Needless to say, this mingling of politicians and terrorists strikes at the very foundations of the "Global War on Terrorism".

Despite the tide of media disinformation, people are increasingly aware that these US sponsored rebels are not "revolutionaries" and that US military aid is being channeled to the terror brigades.

A spontaneous movement on social media networks has emerged involving active members of the armed forces.

"I will not fight for al Qaeda".

"Obama, I will not fight for your al Qaeda rebels in Syria."

 

"Our government tells us that we are fighting a war on terrorism." That is what is taught to new recruits in the Armed Forces. "We're spreading democracy by combating terrorism".

Yet in recent months, millions of Americans have become aware of the fact that the Obama administration is lying.

Supporting the Terrorists

Barack Obama and John Kerry are not fighting terrorism. Quite the opposite: They are actively supporting Al Qaeda terrorists in Syria, who are responsible for the most despicable crimes, killings and atrocities directed against the civilian population.

These crimes have been amply documented.  Beheadings, executions of children. The most gruesome massacres.

The Al Nusrah brigades have performed thousands of executions. A recently released video reveals how two young boys are executed following the reading of a death sentence."In the video can be seen a terrorist reading death sentence to the boys, gunfire is heard, boys fall dead."

Screenshot YouTube

 

Are these the people who are being supported by the US government?

The terrorists are directly recruited by the Western military alliance.  They are trained in Saudi Arabia and Qatar in liaison with the US and NATO.

These are the rebels who, according to CNN, have also been trained by Western special forces in the use of chemical weapons. And they have used chemical weapons against innocent Syrian civilians.

US servicemen and women are adamant. "I did not join the army to fight for al Qaeda."

We were recruited to wage a "Global War on Terrorism" and now our government is collaborating with Al Qaeda.

Congressman Dennis Kucinich said "striking Syria would make the U.S. Military Al-Qaeda's Air Force'".

The concept which is spreading across the land is that the Obama administration is supporting Al Qaeda.

It's a bipartisan consensus: the Republican leadership in the US Congress and the Senate have endorsed support and financial aid to the al Nusrah brigades in Syria.

In the eyes of public opinion, the Global War on Terrorism has, so to speak, fallen flat.

Who is Supporting Whom? Who is Waging a War of Aggression?

The spontaneous movement in the armed forces is based on the notion that the "US government is supporting al Qaeda".

The corporate media has failed to reveal the nature of the longstanding relationship between Al Qaeda and the US government, which goes back to the Soviet-Afghan war.

Al Qaeda -the "outside enemy of America" as well as the alleged architect of the 9/11 attacks- is a creation of the CIA. Al Qaeda and its affiliates are often referred to as "intelligence assets"

From the outset of the Soviet-Afghan war in the early 1980s, the US intelligence apparatus has supported the formation of "Islamic brigades".

Propaganda purports to erase the history of Al Qaeda, drown the truth and "kill the evidence" on how this "outside enemy" was fabricated and transformed into "Enemy Number One".

The Global War on Terrorism is not geared towards curbing the "Islamic jihad".  The significant development of "radical Islam" in the wake of the Cold War was consistent with Washington's hidden agenda. The latter consists in sustaining rather than combating international terrorism, with a view to creating factional divisions within countries and destabilizing national societies.

The numerous al Qaeda affiliated entities are routinely used in CIA covert operations. They are recruited, trained and indoctrinated under the supervision of the CIA and its intelligence counterparts in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Qatar and Israel. Unknown to the American public, the US has spread the teachings of the "Islamic jihad" in textbooks "Made in America", developed at the University of Nebraska

Al Qaeda is an intelligence asset which serves the interests of the US administration.

With regard to Syria, the US government is not "supporting Al Qaeda" Quite the opposite, the Al Qaeda mercenaries in Syria, recruited and trained in Saudi Arabia and Qatar,  are "supporting the US government". They are being used by the US military intelligence apparatus. They are paid killers.

Their actions are implemented as part of a military agenda; they are the foot-soldiers of the Western military alliance. The atrocities committed by the terrorists are the direct result of paramilitary training and indoctrination. The US government is behind this process. Obama is responsible for the crimes committed by the "rebels" against the Syrian people.

Concluding Remarks

We are at an important crossroads. The "Global War on Terrorism" constitutes the cornerstone of war propaganda. Yet at the same time the lies which uphold the GWOT are no longer credible and the thrust and effectiveness of the propaganda campaign are threatened.

No one can reasonably believe in a "war on terrorism" which consists in channeling money and weapons to the terrorists. Its a non sequitur.

"Support to terrorists", portrayed as "revolutionaries" cannot be heralded as part of a foreign policy agenda which officially consists in "going after the terrorists".

But Obama desperately needs to hold on to the "Global war on Terrorism". It's the cornerstone of US military doctrine. It's a worldwide crusade.

Without the "Global War on Terrorism", the Obama administration does not have a leg to stand on: its military doctrine collapses like a deck of cards.

Undermining the credibility of the "Global War on Terrorism" is a powerful instrument of counter-propaganda.

We call on people across the land: Mobilize against Obama's war.

The war on Syria is illegal and criminal.

The President and Commander in Chief's decision to support Al Qaeda in Syria is in violation of international law and US anti terrorism legislation .

US and coalition troops have a moral and legal obligation to refuse to fight in Obama's "humanitarian war" on Syria, which consists in supporting Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists.

The President and Commander in Chief has blatantly violated all tenets of domestic and international law. So that making an oath to "obey orders from the President" is tantamount to violating rather than defending the US Constitution.

"The moral and legal obligation is to the U.S. Constitution and not to those who would issue unlawful orders, especially if those orders are in direct violation of the Constitution and the UCMJ." (Mosqueda, US troops have "A Duty To Disobey all Unlawful orders". http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/MOS303A.html )

"Refusing to fight" an illegal war implies a rejection of the legitimacy of the Commander in Chief.  It denies the Obama administration the authority to conduct an illegal and criminal war on behalf of the American people.

And the American people must support the US servicemen and women who refuse to fight in an illegal war.

Obama is a war criminal. He is supporting terrorists, who are his paid killers. Amply documented Syria's rebels have been trained in the use of chemical weapons and they have used chemical weapons against innocent civilians.

The Global War on Terrorism is a fabrication and a lie.

War is an illegal undertaking.

According to Nuremberg jurisprudence, the ultimate war crime consists in starting a war. Obama and his European counterparts including David Cameron and Francois Hollande are responsible for the supreme crime: "the crime against peace." This war is illegal irrespective of a decision of the UN Security Council to intervene in the internal affairs of a sovereign state:

"All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations...   Nothing contained in the present Charter shall authorize the United Nations to intervene in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state or shall require the Members to submit such matters to settlement under the present Charter." UN Charter - 1: Purposes and Principles

No 17 on the way for UK's biggest family: Couple who has had a baby every 17 months for the past 24 years is expecting Shocked

They are way beyond their  baker's dozen. But Britain's biggest family still has room for more as supermum Sue Radford is pregnant again... with her 17th baby.

The baker's wife is expecting - just 11 months after giving birth to Casper - and she and husband Noel will welcome the latest addition in April.

The couple, of Morecambe, Lancashire, don't know whether it will be a boy or a girl. 

The bigger the better: Sue and Noel Radford, from Morecambe, Lancashire, pictured with their oldest 15 children, have announced the happy news that number 17 is on the way

The bigger the better: Sue and Noel Radford, from Morecambe, Lancashire, pictured with their oldest 15 children, have announced the happy news that number 17 is on the way

They say they are absolutely thrilled' to be having another baby, who will be a sibling for Chris, 24, Sophie, 19, Chloe, 18, Jack, 16, Daniel, 14, Luke, 12, Millie, 12, Katie, ten, James, nine, Ellie, eight, Aimee, seven, Josh, five, Max, four, Tilly, three, Oscar, two and Casper, 11 months.


Mrs Radford wrote on Facebook after her 12-week scan: We are so excited to announce Radford baby 17 will be joining this family in April.

As you can imagine, the children are so excited. Little Tilly said to me: "Mummy you have a baby in your tummy". It was so sweet.' But she added: I feel so sick. Whoever named it morning sickness was lying. Try morning, noon and night sickness.'

The hard-working couple, who own a bakery, live in a former children's home and use a minibus to get around.

Lucky number 17: The Radfords have been a couple for over 25 years and have nine sons and seven daughters - and one granddaughter
