Porkins Great Game ep. 4 Start of the Third Chechen War

In our first episode of 2015, Christoph and I look at the most recent attack in the Chechen capital of Grozny.  We focus on who may have been behind the hours-long gun battle that left nearly 30 people dead.  First we consider the support that neo-nazis in the Ukrainian  parliament have been lending to the Chechen militants, both in rhetoric and possibly in material support as well.  We also speak about the recent capture of a high-ranking Chechen terrorist trying to enter into Crimea from Ukraine.  We then move on to the role that Turkey is playing in protecting and using Chechen’s in Gladio B operations.  Christoph breaks down his recent article in Boiling Frogs Post which details several interesting Gladio operatives discovered in Turkey in recent months and years.  We talk about the recent capture of Ayman Al Zawahiri’s man in Libya, Abd al-Baset Azzouz, while he was staying in a resort town in Turkey.  Christoph explains Azzouz’s connections with the recently deceased Abu Anas Al-Liby, and how Azzouz worked for NATO during the overthrow of Gaddafi.  Christoph also examines the assassination of prominent Chechen Medet Onlu, and how this may have been the work of the Turkish government in an attempt to silence a critic of the “Jihadist highway to Syria” .  We end this segment by discussing a recent article by Brookings president Strobe Talbott, in which he predicts that 2015 will be the start of the Third Chechen War, and how a “prediction” by a deep-state actor like Tablott is really an announcement.
Our second story focuses on the demise of the much-lauded Russian-led natural gas pipeline known as South Stream.  We discuss how US and EU pressure on Eastern European nations led Russia to cancel construction of the pipeline into Europe, and to declare instead  that it will rote this gas to Turkey.  Christoph and I discuss how Turkey is gradually positioning itself to be a major energy broker in the world, and what this may mean, geo-politically speaking.
For our last story we move to Tajikistan and its security problem along the porous border they share with Afghanistan.  We discuss the recent kidnappings of Tajik border guards by the Taliban,  and how they underscore the massive security problem in Afghanistan.  Christoph explains why Tajikistan represents a more serious problem than neighboring Turkmenistan, and examines the Russian and Chinese responses to it.  Christoph also talks about plans to create a “Greater Badakhstan” out of Tajik and Afghan territory right on China’s border.
We finish of the episode by taking a look at the start of the Boston Bombing trial.  We discuss the Tsarnaev family’s connections to the CIA, and how this trial may be part of a much larger narrative that has yet to play out.  Christoph and I also share our predictions for possible developments in Central Asia and the Caucasus region in 2015.

Saudi Arabia’s “purchase” of Pakistani nukes may be propaganda

A recent report by the British Brainwashing Corporation (BBC) about the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia purchasing nuclear weapons from Pakistan could be nothing more than propaganda. This report comes on the heals of supposedly productive talks between Iran and west over the whole nuclear issue. The Saudis have been vociferously protesting this warming of relations. Ergo, the timing of this report is suspect. Even more suspect is the source for this information. It comes from the ever unreliable Israeli intelligence community. Israel and Saudi Arabia have found much in common when it comes to the prospect of Iran securing nuclear weapons, which of course there is no real evidence for. This could all be nothing more than bluster and propaganda directed at the United States in an effort to persuade them to take a more aggressive stance towards Iran. If you don’t do what we like, then we will buy nukes from the Pakistanis, thus starting the nuclear arms race in the Middle East. The most ironic part of this whole story is that the source of Saudi Arabia’s nukes. They are allegedly coming from Pakistan. As FBI whistle blower Sibel Edmonds has noted, Pakistan acquired nuclear technology from various US officials, who were engaged in an illegal nuclear secrets trade deal with various actors in Pakistan.

So, we sell nuclear secrets to the Pakistanis, who in turn sell nuclear weapons to the Saudi’s, and Iran is still the enemy. That is how our current corrupt system works.

Arafat poisoning reveals Israeli nuclear weapons program, yet again

According to a Swiss study large amounts of polonium 210 have been found in the bones and property of PLO leader Yasser Arafat. This notion of poisoning was once disregarded as nothing more than a conspiracy theory out out by the conspiracy minded Palestinians. The corporate media and Israeli press of course are still regarding this as the bogus. A spokesman for the Israeli Foreign Ministry went do far as to say this was “more soap opera than science.” Ultimately Israel will never admit that it may have had a hand in murdering Arafat, despite various Israeli leaders at the time saying that killing Arafat was on the table. This is really just confirmation of something that most people already knew to be fact.

The more interesting aspect of this is that it once again forces people to come face to face with the reality that Israel is the only state in the Middle East with nuclear weapons. Polonium 210 can only be created by someone with sophisticated nuclear facilities. The Israeli nuclear weapons program has long been a taboo subject for the western press. As Grant F. Smith has chronicled in his book Divert, US presidents from LBJ to Obama have continued a policy of denial when it comes to the vast nuclear weapons that Israel posses. The discovery large amounts of polonium in Arafat’s body again point to the Israeli nuclear program. The timing of this couldn’t be worse to the Israeli state. While they are urging America to obliterate Iran, they are themselves sitting on a massive reserve of destructive nuclear weapons.

Mysterious website seeks intelligence on Hezbollah operatives

Via: inteLNews

Intelligence circles in the Middle East are abuzz with news of a mysterious website that appears to offer substantial financial rewards in exchange for information about alleged members of militant group Hezbollah. The website, located at stop910.com, describes its mission as helping end “Hezbollah-perpetrated terrorism in Lebanon and abroad”. It specifically targets the Lebanese group’s Unit 910, believed to be tasked with international operations, including intelligence gathering from around the world. Hezbollah is a Shiite militant group and political party that controls large swathes of Lebanese territory. It was founded in 1985 in response to the invasion of southern Lebanon by the Israel Defense Forces. It is largely funded by Iran and in recent years has come out in support of the Syrian government in the ongoing Syrian Civil War. Much of the stop910.com website consists of dozens of photographs of alleged Hezbollah operatives. Some are identified by name or alias, but the website asks for further information on them, including their real name, primary residence and telephone numbers or email accounts associated with them. Other photographs show images of unidentified individuals, whom the website describes as suspects known to be members of Hezbollah’s Unit 910. Next to each photograph, the website provides an allegedly secure link, which visitors can use to upload information and request payment. The website, which is currently blocked by most Lebanese Internet service providers, claims to represent an alliance of Western intelligence organizations. But McClatchy Newspapers contacted two Western intelligence officials who said the website was almost certainly an Israeli effort to gather information on Hezbollah activities. The United States-based news agency said it spoke to an unnamed “official based in Beirut […], who works for a European intelligence service”. The official told McClatchy that he had seen the website and “wondered why they [the Israeli intelligence services] lied” about who was behind the project. The news agency spoke to another unnamed “intelligence official based in Europe”, who dismissed the project as bad spy tradecraft. “I can’t believe this thing […], it’s very foolish”, he said. And he added: “it actually contains a significant amount of raw intelligence that would be literally illegal for American or European services to release to the public without the highest level of clearance”. The unnamed intelligence official continued: “now anyone can go online and get an idea of how much information we or the Israelis have on some of these guys”.

70 more MKO members defect in Albania

At least another 70 member of the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) have parted ways with the group after being transferred from Iraq to Albania.

A defected leader of the group, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Saturday that certain high-ranking officials were among the defectors.

He said that all the MKO defectors have been housed in a building away from other MKO members and cannot contact their families.The MKO is listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community and has committed numerous terrorist acts against Iranians and Iraqis.

The group fled Iran in 1986 for Iraq, where it received the support of Iraq’s former dictator Saddam Hussein and set up camp near the Iranian border.

In December 2011, the United Nations and Baghdad agreed to relocate some 3,000 MKO members from Camp New Iraq, formerly known as Camp Ashraf, to Camp Liberty. The last group of MKO terrorists was evicted by the Iraqi government on September 11 to join the other members of the terrorist group at Camp Liberty near Baghdad International Airport and await relocation to other countries.

On March 16, Albania’s Prime Minister Sali Berisha announced in a statement that the Albanian government is ready to accommodate 210 members of the MKO group in Tirana “for humanitarian reasons.”

Political experts, however, warn that Albania’s decision to grant asylum to the MKO members has nothing to do with humanitarian concerns, and will give the terrorists a safe haven where they can work with former members of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA).

The KLA is notorious as a murderous group of drug traffickers and terrorists who receive training from NATO and the United States for operations around the world.

Obama and Kerry will continue providing aid to nations using child soldiers

20131002-120654.jpg

The government shutdown isn’t going to stop the White House from providing military aid to nations that employ child solders. Obama and Kerry waived provisions in the Child Soldiers Prevention Act of 2008, to allow them to provide military aid to Yemen, South Sudan, Chad, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Read the full article from RT here.

Humanitarian intervention Al Nusra style

A new video has emerged of Al Nusra fighters beheading two Christians, including a priest, somewhere with in Syria.
WARNING: VIDEO IS EXTREMELY GRAPHIC

This of course is just one video in a litany of videos coming out a Syria depicting the “rebels” committing brutal acts of violence. It’s obvious from the YouTube video that many of these “rebels” are not in fact Syrian or even Arab. Instead we see men, and children possibly as young as three, who appear to be from Central Asia or the Caucus region. Yet again, this video demonstrates the complete delusion among those who continue to portray the war in Syria as some sort of struggle between the good Syrian rebels and the evil Assad regime. Instead this is a struggle to destabilize the nation of Syria on behalf of America, Israel, Qatar, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia, so as to reshape the Middle East to benefit there desired goals of global hegemony. When Obama and other tyrants pledge money and arms to “rebels” these are the people they are talking about. To spite the corporate medias attempts to rewrite history, many are now aware of the strong connections between the U.S. government and Islamic terrorists such as Al Qaeda. As was the case in Afghanistan in the 1980’s history repeats it self here in Syria; with the CIA taking the lead in funding and training their Jihadist assets in the Muslim world.

Some of the global imperialists have even publicly acknowledged there love of Al Qaeda and their ilk. Chief among them is the blood thirsty Arizona senator John McCain, who before meeting with terrorists in Syria, told Charlie Rose that such acts as depicted in the above video we’re “isolated incidents of people who have just gotten so battle-hardened and angry and this happens in warfare.” He went even further when he said he would prefer some sort of Wahabbist Al Qaeda government taking power in Syria because they wouldn’t be allied to Iran and Hezbollah. Straight from the warmongers mouth. The fight in Syria has nothing do do with democracy or humanitarian relief. It has everything to do with the destruction of Syria by means of Islamic terrorist proxy armies so as to control the Middle East.

Syrian Rebels take 21 UN troops hostage

The Syrian rebel group the Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade have taken 21 UN troops hostage. I wonder if these were the “right people” Kerry was talking about when he said that the “right people” are getting arms in Syria. Let’s hope they are the right people since they will now have a seat at the Arab League.
