Merkel: “I didn’t support the Iraq War”

Yesterday (2016-07-28), Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel said at Bundespressekonferenz that she had never supported the war in Iraq and that she never supports war in general: “Ich ähm … unterstütze nie einen Krieg. Ich habe auch den Irakkrieg nicht unterstützt.”.

That’s a lie.

See this article of Angela Merkel from 2003 in the Washington Post: “Schroeder Doesn’t Speak for All Germans“. See also german Spiegel in 2003 and german FAZ in 2003. Merkel heavily supported George W. Bush’s Iraq War when she was the opposition leader in Germany.

Swedish government: No Russian submarines in our waters

Sverigesradio (Radio Sweden) reported on June 11th 2016 that there were no russian subs at swedish coasts at the submarine incidents in the last years, according to the swedish government. In an interview, swedish Defence Minister Peter Hultqvist said that the swedish military had unknown signals from submarines in 2014 and 2015 but the first one (in 2014) was a swedish sub, the second one (in 2015) german. In April 2015, the swedish military announced that a photo from 2014 which was assumed to show a submarine (from russia according to most western media) is false and shows a normal civilian surface boat. With the new informations from the swedish government there are no more hints at russian vessels – submarines – violating swedish waters, “visiting” swedish capital city Stockholm.

USA: How government propaganda works

One Way The White House Manipulates. “A portrait of Obama’s spokesperson and policy guru Ben Rhodes explains how government propaganda works […] experts began popping up at think tanks and on social media, and then became key sources for hundreds of often-clueless reporters. “We created an echo chamber,” he admitted, when I asked him to explain the onslaught of freshly minted experts cheerleading for the deal. “They were saying things that validated what we had given them to say.” […] It works the same way with every issue.”.

Former U.S. Diplomats Decry the U.S.-Backed Saudi War in Yemen

The Intercept about Yemen, USA, Saudi Arabia, Iran, the Gulf States. “Saudi Arabia and the other Arab states that form the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) have been brutally bombing Yemen for more than a year, hoping to drive Houthi rebels out of the capital they overran in 2014 and restore Saudi-backed President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

The United States has forcefully backed the Saudi-led war. In addition to sharing intelligence, the U.S. has sold tens of billions of dollars in munitions to the Saudis since the war began. The kingdom has used U.S.-produced aircraft, laser-guided bombs, and internationally-banned cluster bombs to target and destroy schools, markets, power plants, and a hospital, resulting in thousands of civilian deaths.

Ever-curiouser MH17 case with US government holding back evidence

Robert Parry in Consortiumnews.com: “The Ever-Curiouser MH-17 Case“. “The curious mystery surrounding the shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over eastern Ukraine on July 17, 2014, gets more curious and more curious as the U.S. government and Dutch investigators balk at giving straightforward answers to the simplest of questions even when asked by the families of the victims. Adding to the mystery Dutch investigators have indicated that the Dutch Safety Board did not request radar information from the United States, even though Secretary of State John Kerry indicated just three days after the crash that the U.S. government possessed data that pinpointed the location of the suspected missile launch that allegedly downed the airliner, killing all 298 people onboard. Although Kerry claimed that the U.S. government knew the location almost immediately, Dutch investigators now say they hope to identify the spot sometime “in the second half of the year,” meaning that something as basic as the missile-launch site might remain unknown to the public more than two years after the tragedy. The families of the Dutch victims, including the father of a Dutch-American citizen, have been pressing for an explanation about the slow pace of the investigation and the apparent failure to obtain relevant data from the U.S. and other governments. I spent time with the family members in early February at the Dutch parliament in The Hague as opposition parliamentarians, led by Christian Democrat Pieter Omtzigt, unsuccessfully sought answers from the government about the absence of radar data and other basic facts.

German Scientists: MH370 crash probably in the eastern equatorial Indian Ocean

German scientists of the Geomar Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel are investigating the crash of the malaysian flight MH370. Based on the the debris of MH370 found at the island of La Réunion and on the ocean current in the Indian Ocean they concluded that the crash happened probably in the eastern equatorial Indian Ocean (“östlicher äquatorialer Indischer Ozean”). That’ll probably completly change the theories concerning the crash of the malaysian airplane because the former search area near Australia is not logic any more. Weiterlesen
